Don’t Listen to the Liars: Obama’s Sequestration Lies (Open Thread)

This week, we were “treated” to the ridiculous spectacle of a grandstanding president of the United States giving a campaign-like speech against his own ideas and policies.  Barack Hussein Obama II referred to the upcoming “sequestration“, which was his idea, as like taking a “meat cleaver” to the economy.

The sky is falling!  People will DIE!  Millions will lose their jobs!  Meat won’t be inspected!  Children will have nobody to watch over and care for them!  National security will be at risk!  The border will be overrun! (As if it’s not overrun now, by design of the Obama administration.) Airplanes won’t fly! Unemployment will necessarily skyrocket!  Mind you, $44 billion is what our government spends about every 9 days.

The sequestration is a “manufactured crisis,” Obama said.  Indeed it is: A crisis manufactured by the White House.   Don’t believe it?  Ask Obama’s own spokesperson, Jay Carney. [emphasis added to quotes]

The sequester was one of the ideas put forward, yes, by the president’s team.

Not enough evidence for you?  Ask Democrat Senator Max Baucus:

The president is part of the sequester. The White House recommended it, frankly, back in August, 2011.

Another senator, Republican Rand Paul, agrees:

I mean, for goodness sakes, it was his [Obama’s] proposal. He proposed the sequester. It was his idea. He signed it into law, and now he’s going to tell us that, oh, it’s all our fault?

I voted against the sequester because I didn’t think it was enough. The sequester cuts the rate of growth of the spending, but the sequester doesn’t even really begin to cut spending, which we have to do or we are going to get a credit downgrade, another credit downgrade.

Speaker of the House (Republican) John Boehner agrees with Senator Paul:

Boehner said Thursday that the only reason the sequester exists is because Obama insisted it be included in a debt ceiling and budget deal the two negotiated in 2011 and if Obama thinks it is such bad policy, he should present a plan to fix it.

This sequester was the president’s idea. His party needs to follow through on their plans to replace it,” Boehner said. “I’ve made it very clear. The sequester – I don’t like it. Nobody should like it, but the sequester is there, because the president insisted it be there. Where’s the president’s plan to replace the sequester that he insisted upon?”

Obama took pains to mention in his speech that sequestration was a bill passed by Congress.  Indeed it was!  But he “forgot” to mention that it was HIS IDEA and that HE SIGNED THE BILL.  If it was so stupid, then why did he sign the bill?  Why the about face?  Why the flip flop?

He was for sequestration before he was against it. 

Not only was the idea his idea, not only did he sign the bill to put sequestration into effect, but he also threatened to veto any attempt to stop the automatic cuts in the rate of growth!

[T]he president said his answer to those who want to eliminate those cuts “is simple: No.

I will veto any effort to get rid of those automatic spending cuts to domestic and defense spending. There will be no easy off-ramps on this one.”

The fear mongering has become so bad and so ridiculous that Rush Limbaugh opined that for the first time in his lifetime, he’s ashamed of his country:

Ladies and gentlemen, for the first time in my life, I am ashamed of my country. To be watching all of this, to be treated like this, to have our common sense and intelligence insulted the way it’s being insulted? It just makes me ashamed. Seriously, man. Here we get worked up over $44 billion. That’s the total amount of money that will not be spent that was scheduled to be spent this year. In truth, we’re gonna spend more this year than we spent last year.

They really do think we’re stupid. It remains to be seen if we are.  Will the people of this country be smart enough to know when they’re being openly LIED TO?  If we are to believe at least one poll, nearly half of Americans fell for it and blame Congressional Republicans alone for the sequester:

Nearly half of Americans would blame Republicans if $1.2 trillion in spending cuts go into effect on March 1, according to a poll released Wednesday.

Only 31 percent would blame President Barack Obama, according to the Pew Research Center/USA Today poll, while 49 percent would blame the congressional GOP. Eleven percent would blame both.

How is it that the congressional Democrats get off the hook? 

Notice how the story uses the scarier figure: $1.2 trillion over ten years instead of this year’s quota, which is $44 billion.   They’re not cutting $1.2 trillion on March 1!

Of course, this all means something only if you believe such polls, which are produced by the statist media and/or leftist so-called nonpartisan think tanks, who work in lockstep with Obama to promote his tax-and-profligately-spend policies. 

If these various liars can convince the Republicans that they will be blamed for these so-called cuts (to the rate of growth), then perhaps the Republicans will cave and let Obama raise taxes, lest they be “shellacked” in 2014.  Or so the leftist statists hope.

Everybody with half a brain knows how polls can be skewed to find whatever the pollsters want them to find, simply by the way they word the questions and limit the options for a response.  Typically, of course, they over-sample Democrats for good measure.

The inimitable Charles Krauthammer weighed in, upon being asked why they don’t solve this situation by passing a bill “tomorrow”:

That is precisely why this is the most ridiculously hyped Armageddon since the Mayan calendar. In fact it’s made – it looks worse than the Mayan disaster.

This, as you say, can be solved in a day in an hour by allowing a transfer of funds. It’s incredibly soluble, easily soluble. And the president is the one who ought to propose it. He won’t, of course, because he is looking for a fight and not a solution.

But secondly, look at this in perspective. In terms of the gross domestic product of our economy this is .03 of — it’s a third of one percent on the domestic side, well overall it’s 2.5 cents on the dollar. And overall on the non-defense side it is a penny-and-a-half on the dollar of reductions. 

Here we are with a debt of $16 trillion and the argument today is that if we cut a penny-and-a-half on non-defense spending in one year it’s going to be the end of the world. If so, then we are hopelessly in debt and we’re going to end up like Greece —

As Rand Paul said, these so-called cuts are not even going to reduce the debt:

It’s a pittance. I mean, it’s a slowdown in the rate of growth. There are no real cuts happening over 10 years.

Over 10 years, the budget will still grow $7 trillion to $8 trillion. He added $6 trillion to the debt in his first term. He’s on course to add another $4 trillion to $6 trillion in his second term. So, really, this is just really nibbling at the edges, and he’s saying, oh, it’s some dramatic thing where all of a sudden it’s still the rich’s fault.

Didn’t he already raise taxes on the rich? I’m having trouble even understanding what he’s talking about because he sets up this rhetoric and this sort of game of let’s go get the rich again that really is divorced from any reality. It’s his sequester we’re talking about, his bill.

Senator Rand Paul also said this:

I think the sequester happens, and it will be in some ways a yawn, because the histrionics that are coming from the president, saying, oh, we’re going to shut down and get rid of meat inspectors.  Is anybody not going to stand up and call his bluff on that ridiculousness?

We shall find out over the next week.  The “automatic cuts” in the RATE OF GROWTH of spending take effect on March 1.  That is, unless the Republicans cave in fear.  Unless they listen to the liars.

Congressional Republicans:  Don’t listen to the liars.  The people are on your side. 

That same Pew poll said that 54% of Americans want the deficit reduced, and they want it done mostly by spending cuts, not increased taxes.

  1. Most informative. More frightening after reading this is what Hagel would be in charge of and he sure isn’t qualified. I hope the Republicans hold the line on this guy. I read that one GOP Senator has changed his mind and that could lead to a confirmation for Hagel.

    What a Defense Secretary Does
    Pace Hagel, it’s a policy-making job.

  2. Obama’s Sequestration Scam
    February 23, 2013 – Wayne Allyn Root Snip

    The economy is in freefall. Gas prices are skyrocketing. Walmart calls their sales “a total disaster.”

    But don’t panic. Our fearless leader Obama is just back from a “Swing State”…you know, the kind of place where you work on your golf swing. He was consulting on the economy with Tiger Woods and Butch Harmon. While Michelle was playing in Aspen. You wouldn’t accept this storyline if it was a fictional movie script. Too unrealistic.

    This country under Obama is becoming one big scam. A Ponzi scheme. Obama is the guy running the Ponzi, playing the role of Bernie Madoff. But the mainstream media is his accomplice.

    Exhibit A is the so-called Sequestration. It was the Obama administration that gave us the sequestration. Even Bob Woodward the famous investigative journalist says, “The Sequester was Obama’s idea.”

    Now Obama gets back from his tough golf weekend with Tiger and claims sequestration is the end of the world. Funny, Obama never mentioned…it was his idea. He never mentioned that the specific Obama lackey who created the idea was Jack Lew- who Obama has just nominated to become Treasury Secretary.

    That’s right- sequestration is such a bad idea, causing such an economic crisis, that Obama is rewarding the guy who thought it up by putting him in charge of the entire U.S. economy. Where are the screaming headlines in the mainstream media pointing out that Obama is the world’s biggest hypocrite?

    To make this Saturday Night Live skit even funnier, Obama the man of the working people, the man of the middle class, first picked a tax cheat, Tim Geithner, as his first term Treasury Secretary. Then for his second term, he picked Jack Lew- who invests his money in a Cayman Islands fund housed in the building that Obama has called “the greatest tax scam in the world .”

    • Saquestration? Lets all agree that if we disagree we will all commit suicide by jumping off the Empire State building? Okaaaaay!
      “The Revolutionary force today has two targets, moral as well as material. Its young protagonists are one moment reminiscent of the idealistic early Christians, yet they also urge violence and cry, ‘Burn the system down!’ They have no illusions about the system, but plenty of illusions about the way to change our world. It is to this point that I have written this book.” Saul Alinsky

  3. Has Obama yet said that social security recipients won’t get their monthly checks or the military won’t get paid? Those are his standard threats…”Chicken Little” Obama has added some new ones to his threat repertoire. Now he included health care! The sky is falling because it is the Marxists intent to do so. Lies, threats and fear – the staple cry of the Marxists/communists.

    President Barack “I Didn’t Do It” Obama
    Feb. 24, 2013 Snip

    Should this slight slowing of the increase in future government spending come to pass, Obama told the world, “Border Patrol agents will see their hours reduced. FBI agents will be furloughed. Federal prosecutors will have to close cases and let criminals go. [B.S.!] Air traffic controllers and airport security will see cutbacks, which means more delays at airports across the country. [LaHood’s choice of where to cut!] Thousands of teachers and educators will be laid off.[Feds don’t pay teachers, the States do!] Tens of thousands of parents will have to scramble to find childcare for their kids. [Why? ] Hundreds of thousands of Americans will lose access to primary care and preventive care like flu vaccinations and cancer screenings.” [They already did with Obamacare!]

    • I believe there’s an exception for the “entitlement” programs, so SS checks MUST AND WILL go out. He can’t scare old ladies, FOR ONCE! What I don’t understand is why the Republicans aren’t running an ad that proves that this was Obama’s idea.

    • It’s interesting that they link to a story by Bob Woodward that was published like a “document dump”.

      It probably pained him to lay it out there so truthfully–it was Barry’s idea and he and Lew, almost like with the Benghazi lies, lied about it for a long, long time, until Carney finally admitted that it was the administration’s idea. I wonder what Lew’s confirmation hearing had to do with their sudden admission that Lew had been prevaricating for Barry all along? And Woodward says this was LEW’S idea. Tell me he didn’t get confirmed.

  4. Organizing For Amerika, One Moron At a Time.
    Sunday, February 24, 2013

    Big Guy’s former political reelection arm, Organizing For America, has morphed into “Organizing for Action.” It’s still “OFA” so they can keep the cool logo!

  5. It could be expected since Karzai has to side with someone since the US is leaving. Accusing the US of murdering innocents? Are the children innocently wearing suicide vests provided by their elders? Such accusations, but then again, I ask what is war? Did the Nazi’s worry about women and children during WWII? Do the Taliban worry about the children? No, they arm them and have them blow themselves up!

    Karzai orders US special forces out of Afghan province
    24 February 2013 11:37 ET

    The Afghan president has ordered US special forces to leave Wardak province within two weeks. The decision was being taken due to allegations of disappearances and torture by Afghans considered to be part of US special forces, said a spokesman for Hamid Karzai.

    The strategically significant, central province of Wardak has been the recent focus of counter-insurgency operations.
    The Afghan president’s office said the decision to order the expulsion of US special forces had been taken at a meeting of the National Security Council. “After a thorough discussion, it became clear that armed individuals named as US special force[s] stationed in Wardak province engage in harassing, annoying, torturing and even murdering innocent people,” it said.

    • I heard on the news that they weren’t really Americans who were doing the harassing, etc., but Afghans who were working WITH the Americans. Karzai doesn’t care. In his world because they were working with the U.S., they are the murderers. His own people…and yet the Americans are ordered to get out? How much money from U.S. taxpayers has gone into that country and Karzai still keeps getting cash for his coffers! Double speak just like Obama. Another corrupt snake. He says what some want to hear and does the opposite. Cut them off. They have been given the chance to take care of themselves, and their barbaric country wants to live in the 7th century. Let them.

  6. From the Obama Hustle February 16, 2013.

    “Breaking News – The Obama Administration pays for CNN content”

    “Within this Canadian video report you will find footage of a CNN story on Egypt and Mohammed Al Zawahiri. It was produced by well-known CNN Journalist Nick Robertson. The entire video is excellent, but the pertinent aspect is at the 1:30 mark.

    In the previous thread I asked two central questions. The Second Question was:

    Why would CNN [or CNNi] refuse to air the Nick Robertson report with Muhammed Al Zawahiri (brother of Ayman Al Zawahiri) that clearly shows the Egyptian uprising was 100% in response to his call for protests for release of the Blind sheik on 9-11.? Why would the “most trusted name in news“, hide the report showing the truth, and instead allow the false narrative to be sold, by them, to the American electorate?

    Amber Lyon provides the answer(s). CNN never aired the Nick Robertson report in Egypt because it completely contradicted the Obama Administration, and Hillary Clinton State Department, Egyptian assertions. In short, it proved they were lying – BIG TIME. The refusal to air the real reasoning for the Egyptian Embassy assault was intentional protection of President Obama specifically orchestrated by the CNN News group. Specific, intentional, lying.

    Apparently they have a history of this no-one knew about. UNTIL NOW.

    Amber Lyon is an award-winning journalist who worked for CNN. She says she was ordered to report fake stories, delete unfriendly stories adverse to the Obama administration (like the Nick Robertson report), and construct stories in specific manners while working for the left-wing network.

    CNN is paid by foreign and domestic Government agencies for specific content.
    Let me repeat that.

    CNN is paid by the US government for reporting on some events, and not reporting on others. The Obama Administration pays for CNN content.”

  7. WTH???? Real Marines can’t be trusted even if they have no bolts in their guns? Now we need FAKE soldiers parading for Obama? I am aghast but once again I am totally shocked. Paranoia, or couldn’t they find Marines willing to be in the parade? Wouldn’t they have orders to do so?

    Obama’s Inaugural Marines Were FAKE
    February 23, 2013

    On orders from the Obama administration, the bolts from the M1 rifles carried by Marines in the Inaugural parade were removed. Even more shockingly, it appears that the Marines who normally provide security and perform ceremonial functions for the President were replaced with ringers.

    Some of the “Marines” that paraded in front of the reviewing stand on Inauguration Day were unshaven, their uniforms out of line and ill-fitting, and their marching skills – in the opinion of this writer and dozens of other real Marines – could easily have been bested by any 3rd phase Marine Corp recruit platoon.

    In this episode of “The Truth Is Viral,” I speak with radio talk show host Pete Santilli, himself a Marine; and together, we dissect the video provided by the United States Marine Corp, proving that the men who paraded in front of the President were not Marines from Marine Corp Barracks Washington D.C., the famed 8th & I.


      • About 13 minutes – is when the conversation starts about the Marines.
        Shows the bolts removed in the guns. Ringers are dressed and walking like slobs. Unshaved as well. Watch the people out of line.

        Prior to that, around 10 minutes, he said he has spoken to Marines who are asked to fire on Americans, they tell Obama they will, but if it comes to that point – they won’t do it. They are career military, but are still patriots.

      • That’s so true. Even I can see that those guys did not march correctly.

        Since they may have been “ringers”, is it possible that in order to comply with DC LAW, the guns HAD TO BE DISABLED, because they didn’t fall under any exception (like being in the military)?

        Is the important point that they were ringers, and not that real Marines were disarmed? (Yet another diss of the troops.)

        Could it be that either the Marines refused to disarm their guys or else there’s some kind of rule, law, regulation that says they cannot be issued non-functional weapons, so that their only choice to comply with Barry’s rules (because Barry distrusts the troops) was to put FAKE Marines into uniform with disabled weapons? Isn’t it a crime to wear the uniform if you’re not a Marine?

        Wouldn’t people recognize the faces and be able to identify these guys? Isn’t there some way to use the Facebook facial recognition function to ID some of them? Could they be recruits?

        Could actual trained Marines have refused to comply with carrying fake weapons? Would they be allowed to refuse? I wonder.

        Could Marine General John Allen’s summons to the WH to be ordered to “decide” his own fate as NATO commander have been caused by perhaps his disagreement over this? It seems petty but Petty is Barry’s middle name.

        One thing I notice is that some of these guys face forward while others have their heads turned to their left. Isn’t it protocol that they all do these head snaps in synch?

        • Onto something here? From DC gun laws:

          § 7-2502.01. Registration requirements

          (a) Except as otherwise provided in this unit, no person or organization in the District of Columbia (”District”) shall receive, possess, control, transfer, offer for sale, sell, give, or deliver any destructive device, and no person or organization in the District shall possess or control any firearm, unless the person or organization holds a valid registration certificate for the firearm. A registration certificate may be issued:

          (1) To an organization if:

          (A) The organization employs at least 1 commissioned special police officer or employee licensed to carry a firearm whom the organization arms during the employee’s duty hours; and

          (B) The registration is issued in the name of the organization and in the name of the president or chief executive officer of the organization;

          (2) In the discretion of the Chief of Police, to a police officer who has retired from the Metropolitan Police Department; or

          (3) In the discretion of the Chief of Police, to the Fire Marshal and any member of the Fire and Arson Investigation Unit of the Fire Prevention Bureau of the Fire Department of the District of Columbia, who is designated in writing by the Fire Chief, for the purpose of enforcing the arson and fire safety laws of the District of Columbia.

          (b) Subsection (a) of this section shall not apply to:

          (1) Any law enforcement officer or agent of the District or the United States, or any law enforcement officer or agent of the government of any state or subdivision thereof, or any member of the armed forces of the United States, the National Guard or organized reserves, when such officer, agent, or member is authorized to possess such a firearm or device while on duty in the performance of official authorized functions; [So the Marines ARE EXEMPT from the DC gun laws. But if you’re NOT a MARINE …]

          § 7-2507.02 Firearms required to be unloaded and disassembled or locked

          Except for law enforcement personnel described in § 7-2502.01(b)(1), each registrant shall keep any firearm in his possession unloaded and disassembled or bound by a trigger lock or similar device unless such firearm is kept at his place of business, or while being used for lawful recreational purposes within the District of Columbia. …”


      • A comment at that website that broke this fake Marine story:

        “February 24, 2013 at 2:52 pm

        I served in the Marine Corps from 12-’61 until 4-’66 so I do know what I’m talking about. Here’s something no one noticed and another thing to look at “NOT ONE OF THEM IN THIS PHOTO HAS ANY RANK AT ALL”, no stripes, no hash marks, no medals (not even the “National Defense” medal and everyone has that). Also NO RED stripe down the pant leg and anyone above the rank of corporal has one of those. Even in Boot Camp each squad leader, the flag bearer and platoon leader had rank the two in the rear following the platoon should at least be PFC’s with one stripe and I’m sure that if they were in a Presidential Parade at least one of them would have some kind of rank. YES these are phoney Marines The whole platoon is not squared away and are very sloppy they would never have made it out of my Marine Corps Boot Camp!”

        I do see one guy at the very back with a red stripe on his pants. One of the so-called fact check sites was on the story, but even they can’t come up with an excuse:

        ” The Truth:
        We are still investigating to see if there was an actual order from the White House or the Secret Service regarding the rifles used in the parade.

        We have talked to several retired members from different branches of the service who told us that it is not customary for weapons to be loaded during a parade. Under normal circumstances, the firing pins are removed from weapons unless they are taken into battle or used on the firing range.

        We were able to identify three different rifles used by the U.S. Marines in this parade and have images below taken from video of the parade.”

        It doesn’t fly, though, because the very first story I read about this said that in 2009, the Marines did not have guns without bolts. iirc, they said it wasn’t so for other presidential inaugural parades, either. Just this one. What’s interesting is that there are photos at the site where SOME of the Marines, particularly those next to the flag bearers, have weapons with bolts. But the main body behind them seem to have none.


        The uniforms don’t look right to me. Picture of Marines at GWB’s inauguration:

        larger From this link.

        It’s possible the guys at Barry’s anointment were wearing overcoats. It does look like it, but why? I can’t find anything that says it’s okay for them to wear overcoats. There’s a CLOAK with a red lining that goes with the dress uniform. It would have been just as cold at GWB’s inauguration, and those Marines wore no overcoats. Can you see “bolts” in their guns? I don’t know enough about guns to tell.

      • It appears these rifles all have fixed bayonets and they look like the M1 Garrand. If you look closely there are no front sights near the muzzle but there is the the ring and locking mechanism for the bayonet that can be seen near the muzzle. The old rain coat was once green I don’t know the color now. But I do know that is one ragged formation especially one passing in review of high profile dignitaries. Actually it appears there is one entire vacant position you can see just above the white cover. Maybe the missing body fainted, The sheckinah of Obama has a way of causing peonies to swoon and pass-out. Just when you think it can’t it does [get worse].

        • ken, are you talking about the rifles in the photo from GWB’s inauguration or the ones from Barry’s? In one of those links cited above, someone points out that there appear to be three different types of rifles carried in Barry’s parade. If I remember, one of them is the Garrand. It was this link:

          What I wondered is whether in previous administrations, the Marines who marched also had no bolts in their weapons. Can you see bolts in those rifles in the photo just above?

          • The ones in barrys’ passing in review looks counterfit. I too was in the Corps. The only time we ever removed the bolt from the rifle was to clean it. I too thought it looked like a mixture of different rifles. Also some of the bayonets (if it is bayonets are loose fitting) look at the angles how they seem to drop toward the ground. Besides everything else our white house occupant is so paranoid he most likely did have the old obsolete M1s issued without any firing mechanism. But yes, in the top picture all the rifles I can clearly see (with a magnifying glass) are minus the bolts.
            The bottom pics all have bolts. Also notice the white cover. Obama’s marines are missing the Golden Globe and Eagle on the front of the covers-all of them. Bush’ Marines all have the Golden Globe and Eagle. Obviously Obama’s marines are not GI.

            • Thank you, ken. I know little about military uniforms or rifles. So it appears that the Marines in GWB’s parade were REAL and possibly the Marines in Barry’s either are fake Marines or very sloppy ones, which might be true, if affirmative action and other “transformations” by Barry are taking their toll on our troops. I don’t think so, though. I think the reason the guns were disassembled was to conform with DC gun laws, which have exceptions ONLY FOR LEGITIMATE COPS, FEDERAL AGENTS, AND MEMBERS OF THE MILITARY. These ringers weren’t any of those, so their guns HAD TO BE non-functional. The only explanation that I can think of is that Barry was too afraid to let REAL troops march in his parade.

    This year, the Senate saw the additions of Democratic Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Tammy Baldwin, Tim Kaine, and Chris Murphy. They will surely fit in with the likes of Sens.

  12. Rosemary Woodhouse

    Speaking of S e c re t Se r vice (upthread) BRAVO!!

    • TY. I thought that was exempted. The Republicans were smart enough, for once, to preempt the DemoncRATS from being able to scare old people, as is their wont.

  13. “Catastrophe when America’s twin gave up guns”

    “SYDNEY, Australia – In the country that has some of the most restrictive firearms legislation in the world, law-abiding citizens must obtain police permission before purchasing a gun and subject themselves to public ridicule, surprise searches without warrants, arbitrary confiscation and burdensome government regulations.

    It’s a fate that could befall America, some warn, if citizens willingly surrender their firearms – and with those guns, an entire nation’s hard-won freedom.”

    • Sure. The DemoncRATS are modeling their proposals on the laws in the UK and Australia. But did those countries have an equivalent of the Second Amendment? I think not. They all of them are having trouble with Islamists, too, aren’t they?

    • From Howard’s op-ed in the NY Times:

      “I could reduce the number of dangerous firearms only by persuading the states to enact uniform laws totally prohibiting the ownership, possession and sale of all automatic and semiautomatic weapons while the national government banned the importation of such weapons.”

      EXACTLY why Barry and the DemoncRATS are encouraging their cohorts in state legislatures to create a plethora of conflicting state laws, so Barry can argue that to be effective, we MUST have a federal ban and law. In addition, as in Australia, he’ll TRY to lean on states and threaten to withhold money unless they knuckle under.

      btw, I read the most revealing story over the weekend, that gives insight into the minds of the complicit statist, leftist lamestream media. Here’s the relevant quote:

      “… The administration hopes to win over the public and bring Republican lawmakers to heel, and it dispatched Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood to the White House briefing room on Friday. …”

      By that analogy, this David Espo reveals his mindset. Barry is the MASTER. Republicans (and presumably all other representatives of We the Peeps) are DOGS whose PLACE IT IS TO FOLLOW AT THE MASTER’S HEELS AND OBEY, preferably with tails between their legs. Why would Espo choose this analogy? This turn of phrase? Because this is how the leftists think. They do not believe in co-equal branches of government and they certainly don’t believe the the Congress is FIRST among the three branches, as the representatives of WE THE PEEPS, who are the real RULERS in this Republic. We the Peeps are the ONLY RULERS in this Republic.

      The big difference in the story of gun control in Australia, compared to here: IF Barry threatened to try to change the Constitution and eliminate the Second Amendment, the debate would be RESOUNDINGLY OVER. He KNOWS that We the Peeps would NEVER REPEAL the Second Amendment. NEVER. That’s why they try to do it illegally, unconstitutionally, and through the courts.

  14. “Hollywood’s Pious Hypocrisy”

    “Hypocrisy is endemic in Hollywood. That is one reason Barack Obama and other Democrats feel so welcome there. Hypocrisy is a wide spectrum disorder in Hollywood. Similar to a virus, it has many types and mutates as time goes by. There are the obvious displays.”

    “U.S. first lady Michelle Obama made a surprise and unprecedented appearance on Sunday’s Oscars telecast when she presented the award for Best Picture, the first time a president or first lady has ever presented an Academy Award.

    Appearing live on screen from the White House in Washington, almost 3,000 miles from the Oscars ceremony in Hollywood, Obama praised the work of the movie industry before announcing the Iran hostage drama “Argo” the Best Picture winner.”

    • Thanks for this, Gordo. I wondered if this was a first, and this story answers the question.

      Of course! The Obamas think they’re “celebrities”. In Mooch’s case, she is a celebrity, if the definition of a celebrity is someone who’s famous for being famous. She has no accomplishments.

      With the Obamas, EVERYTHING MUST BE ABOUT THEM. They cannot stand to see the eyes of the nation on anyone but themselves, so they MUST interject themselves, even in a place where they have no place. There’s another reason besides hypocrisy that explains why the Obamas feel comfortable out there–they’re amongst other ACTORS: People who have fooled themselves into believing that because they can deliver the lines that others write for them, then that makes them accomplished. In the vast majority of cases, it does not.

      A gut feeling of fear is growing: Is she planning to run for POtuS?

      She was all glammed up for the occasion, as if she were there on the red carpet, as one of the nominees herself, being admired.

      Did WE PAY FOR THIS SOMEHOW? Where was she standing in the WH, as this was filmed? What WH resources did she use for this ridiculous stunt? Going by the outfits on her “attendants” (who somehow remind me of the flying monkeys), they must have had an Oscar soiree in the WH last night.


      What? No Harry Winston jewels loaned for the occasion? Allegedly, it was Harvey Weinstein’s idea:

      “… So, two weeks ago, Koch and the producers borrowed Disney’s jet for a flight to D.C. They told their colleagues, though, that they had to go to New York for the day. “The planning of it was like Argo — it was a C.I.A. mission, it was so complicated. We didn’t even want anyone to know where we were going,” Zadan said.

      Once they arrived, they joined up with Weinstein and his daughter and then they all met with members of the first lady’s staff to hammer out the details. The staff took them through the available White House rooms so they could select one for the broadcast. They were asked whether the first lady should appear alone or with a group, and the producers suggested having members of the military join in.

      With the White House aboard, Zadan and Meron then approached Jack Nicholson, who had starred in their 2007 film The Bucket List. “We said, ‘We have this proposition for you. How would you like to present best picture with Michelle Obama?’,” Zadan said. Nicholson immediately signed on. The Obama appearance was treated like a state secret, known to only a few of those working on the show. It was intentionally kept off the show’s run sheets, so it wouldn’t leak. …”

      GAG ME. So the “flying monkeys” are actually members of OUR military. This is what they do with our troops–diss them on a daily basis. Making them serve as flying monkeys to the Wicked Witch of the WH. It makes me sick.

      • Glenn Beck just opined on radio that a LIBERAL blogger asked whether, by doing this, they were trying to ENSURE that ONLY half the country goes to see their movies? It’s a good point. It’s something that Hollywood ought to seriously consider. How many people boycott these movies already? Well, they’re all commies and not capitalists, so maybe they don’t care about making PROFIT. But shareholders probably do.

        • Well, by happenstance I found the blogger Beck talked about:

          “Hang on: the end is mercifully near.

          As if Hanoi Jane wasn’t fuel enough. Oh My God – the Academy actually fans the fire by drafting First Lady Michelle Obama to help present Best Picture from presumably the White House? So unnecessary and inappropriate to inject so much politics into the Oscars yet again. Hollywood will get pilloried by conservative pundits for arranging this payoff for all the campaign donations it gave the President’s reelection campaign. I don’t understand this very obvious attempt to infuriate right-leaning audiences. Clearly the studios only want to sell their movies to only half of America.”

          We ought to give them what they want–use your “entertainment” dollars to watch Blaze TV, after calling your cable provider to ask them to put it into their line-up.

          • Rosemary Woodhouse

            I’ve been done with Hollywood for quite sometime (okay, I caved to see Les Miz because I adore the play) Now, the deal is sealed forevermore.

        • Ms. on the right looks like it’s “true love.” Somebody at Free Republic remarked on Mooch’s five o’clock shadow. In comments there, someone else posted a convincing photo of an ancient hermaphrodite. Remembering that dress that was reminiscent of David Bowie in his shift dress?

          Mooch seems to have the bigger package.

    • I didn’t and wouldn’t watch the Oscars. Better to watch paint dry. Here’s another example, though, of the mindset of these people. Mind you that a 9-year-old was a nominee:

      Oscar gift bags have condoms and…

      This year’s Oscar nominee gift bag includes condoms and a $5,000 face lift. … The gift bag is estimated to be worth $45,000 and will be given to all of the stars who are nominated for awards at the Hollywood bash, including Jennifer Lawrence, Anne Hathaway, Daniel Day-Lewis, Jessica Chastain and Steven Spielberg.”

      Hmm. They left out Quvenshane.

    • Like Rush, whom I just listened to, I haven’t watched the Oscars in years, but my daughter was and we were talking about the dresses the women were wearing as they arrived on the red carpet before it started. Then I just kept it on. I haven’t read anything about the song and dance, “I saw your boobs”, where they mentioned not only the actresses but their movies where they saw them. The camera panned to several of those mentioned in the song, and they weren’t happy. It was disgusting IMHO. The winners weren’t allowed to speak for long – a minute or two, and that is what I remembered from the past where they went on and on. I noted that many were received awards were Brits and those giving awards were also not Americans.

      The biggest surprise was at the very end to have MO’s face in front of me. She was so out of place, and those on stage weren’t that excited that she was delivering the award for Argo. MO’s appearance really upstaged the winners. Ben Afflect looked back to see if she was still there as some were giving their speeches. The look on dismay was plainly on their faces. As Rush said, the irony of it is that she was giving an award for a film about a rescue of EMBASSY people in Iran – considering Obama did nothing for our Americans in Benghazi. They were perhaps expecting the film about the killing of Bin Laden to win, so egg is on those in the WH anyway. It was pitiful to interject MO and their politics into something coveted by the movie industry. I can only think somehow this was a payback for their monies. Will any of them say how they really felt not having one of their peers announce the award?

      • Funny, I just wrote that I heard Rush, and here is WND writing an article about his broadcast today.

        Limbaugh: Supreme irony for Obamas at Oscars
        ‘If you want to look for a conspiracy in any of this, you focus on that’
        1 hour ago – SNIP

        Talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh says there was supreme irony and a possible “conspiracy” in having first lady Michelle Obama present the award for best picture Sunday night at the 85th annual Academy Awards. “There was some real irony last night that zipped by and blew by a lot of people,” Limbaugh noted, saying it was the first time in a decade he had watched the entire broadcast from start to finish.

        “The best picture award last night went to a movie named ‘Argo,’ which was about what? The rescue of embassy personnel under attack in Iran. The wife of the commander in chief who failed to rescue four Americans at an embassy/consulate in Benghazi presented it, and talked about how important it was, and how necessary it is and how great it was and all that.

        “This administration FAILED in rescuing Americans under attack, and the wife of the president who failed presented the Oscar to the movie who won the best picture award about a successful rescue of embassy personnel from Iran in 1979, thereby maybe claiming credit.”

        • That is irony. Good point by Rush. It blew past me. I didn’t see Argo; not sure I would, considering the source. btw, Afleck thanked Canada only because before the program there was an article where the gummint of Canada complained about getting short shrift in his movie for their help in freeing the hostages.

        • I can’t keep track of what’s been posted before, but here’s Rush comparing Moochelle to “Dear Leader” in an ad Mackintosh put out spoofing 1984.

      • It is TOTALLY typical and totally leftist for them to ridicule and demean women at the Oscars. I don’t know WHEN, if ever, the women in the DemoncRAT party and those who support the Party will realize this fact: The MOST SEXIST group in the USA is the DemoncRAT Party. Don’t they get a clue by the way the powers that be in the DemoncRAT Party and their cohorts in the statist media cabal take after conservative women? The vitriol is there. For it to be so extreme speaks to a deep-seated hatred of women in general that’s boiling beneath the surface. When a CONSERVATIVE woman shows up, then they have “permission” to show their true colors, but their hatred and anger at ALL FEMALES is there. It also comes, and I’m being politically incorrect for speaking this truth–it also comes from the spite, envy, and hatred many gays in Hollywood and the theater feel for females in general. The Brits are becoming more and more anti-American. It’s obvious in their imported TV shows on PBS, many of which (like Law and Order, etc.) repeat the lies that we hear from people like Maxine Waters and “Reverend” Wright and Bill Ayers. Not to mention Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame. Let me add that the most RACIST group is also the DemoncRAT Party, which is evident in the way they take after CONSERVATIVE blacks and “browns”. They similarly give themselves permission to air their bigotry for political reasons, but the BIGOTRY is there from the beginning. It’s evident in the WAY that they attack West, Cain, Carson, Rubio, et al. RACIALLY.

      • Journalists have said they don’t like it!

        Heroes, Not Props: FLOTUS Ignores Military Members During Oscar Appearance

        Folks on both sides of the ideological aisle will be debating First Lady Michelle Obama’s appearance on the Oscars for some time, but one matter is instantly clear. The First Lady was flanked by several members of the U.S. military during her satellite appearance from The White House to announce the Best Picture winner, and she failed to acknowledge their presence or their heroism.

        Meanwhile, even liberal media reporters found the appearance off-putting.
        However, instead of inspiring, the surprising presenter instantly drew a few head shakes and loud groans from journalists backstage. … When Michelle Obama was introduced by Jack Nicholson most of the reporters in the media room groaned….loudly.”

        I LOVE IT! The Breitbart story links to others and one of them reminds us that Clinton was at the Golden Globes, so that explains all. Obamas are NOT TO BE ONE-UPPED by the Clintons. In addition, it gave Mooch a chance to actually be rated alongside the others on her gown, AS IF she’s a Hollywood starlet, and the critics obliged her by raving about her dress.

  15. Kirsten Powers critiques the leftist statist media at about 3:25 in. I didn’t know that Barry played golf with Tiger Woods but ALSO with OIL EXECUTIVES. I can guess what that closed-door meeting with media people entailed: planning for how they would help BLAME the Republicans for the sequester. Today there was an absolutely shameless headline story in the paper that lied about the horrific effects of the sequester (no mention that the same amount, more or less, was “found” to hand to Christie); and the story TOTALLY AVOIDED mentioning that the sequester was Barry’s idea, although they quoted Claire McCaskill saying she couldn’t believe that the Republicans voted for sequester. Well, so did the DEMONCRATS, and the POtuS, whose idea it was, signed the bill. The story was probably written FOR THEM and disseminated to them. It is apparently based on a state-by-state analysis, provided by the adminstration, telling how awful it will be for each state.

    This entire sequester initiative (seeking to blame Republicans) is a massive campaign to get control of the House, for Barry’s last (we hope) two years as POtuS.


      CBS’s Bill Plante: Obama Administration ‘Undercutting First Amendment,’ ‘It’s State-Run Media’

      Bill Plante, CBS News Senior White House Correspondent, made a rather shocking statement Sunday about the Obama administration’s media strategy.

      Appearing on CNN‘s Reliable Sources, Plante said that to the extent the White House is able to “put out their own material” without the Washington press corps, “they’re undercutting the First Amendment…it’s state-run media.” …” Video at the link.

      After four years, they’re finally beginning to notice the “state-run media?” Since they are ALL complicit in allowing the WH to hand them their scripts, why would they complain now?

  16. Unbelievable – Now DEMONcRAT Menendez says his troubles with the prostitutes (new and young girls in the stables) is because of ….guess what? Right wing – Racists – who are out to smear him! This article doesn’t say it, but another one I read, says a high class prostitute has said he was one of her clients…but under an assumed name! She recognized his photo! Yup – that’s a rightwing smear alright! He is a weiner…oops a winner.

    Bob Menendez plays race card, blames conservatives for scandals
    10:46 PM 02/24/2013

    At a Black History Month event held at a Trenton, N.J. church on Sunday, Democratic Senator Bob Menendez blamed conservatives for his ethics scandals, framing them as a racial attack on him because of his Hispanic heritage. “I have felt the sting of discrimination,” he told approximately 300 worshipers, according to the Bergen Record. ”It has never been easy.”

    “Now we face anonymous, faceless, nameless individuals from right-wing sources seeking to destroy a lifetime of work,” Menendez said at Shiloh Baptist Church. [How about those ANONYMOUS people that the Left always finds to peddle their smears against conservatives, Bob!] “And their smears are false. I have worked too hard and too long in the vineyards, too long with my hands, for the harvest to be soured.” [Thinking about the smears of the Left wing on the successful Dr. Carson, Bob!]

    • Somewhere there was a story that his poll numbers within his home state are dropping like a rock. He’s lashing out in anger. Typical. Nothing is ever their own fault–it has to be some “devil” that made him do it. Or made the prostitutes accuse him. Whatever. He’s a “victim”. Good point! The DemoncRATS are always more than happy to use anonymous sources when it suits their purposes. There’s nothing to stop the statist media and the DemoncRATS from just “making things up,” as Governor Palin said.

  17. ‘Hagel has promoted agenda of the enemy’
    Nobel Peace Prize nominee says defense pick is pal to Iran
    Feb. 24, 2013

    A former Nobel Peace Prize nominee warns that Senate confirmation of Chuck Hagel as secretary of defense would send a message to Iran of weakened U.S. resolve, making it less likely America’s military might would in any way deter Iran’s nuclear ambitions.

    “Going back to 2001, Hagel has been opposed to U.S. sanctions on Iran and in favor of recognizing the Islamic Republic in order to normalize trade relationships,” journalist and activist Ken Timmerman told WND. “Hagel has virtually made his position on Iran identical to the policies of the Iranian government, including a demand the U.S. enter direct negotiations with Iran ‘without preconditions’ and opposing the United States’ use of military force to block Iran’s nuclear weapons development program.”

    “If Hagel is confirmed as secretary of defense,” Timmerman argued, “we will have someone in charge of the U.S. military who has promoted the agenda of the Islamic Republic of Iran, an enemy of the United States since 1979, when Ayatollah Khomeini returned to Iran to begin the Iranian revolution.”

    Hagel has been a long-term supporter of the founder and president of the pro-Tehran lobbying group American-Iranian-Council, Housang Amirahmadi, who was disqualified by the Iranian Guardian Council from running for president of Iran in June 2005 and is currently running for president of Iran once again this year, despite being an American citizen.

  19. “As civil rights leaders from Gandhi to Martin Luther King Jr. recognized, disarming a population is the first step to oppression.

    “I hope that people across this country will join us at and demand an end to the discrimination that still plagues this country.”

  20. Rand Paul, God love him, is going to do everything in his power to block Brennan!

    Rand Paul Will Block Brennan Until Drone Questions Answered

    Paul found Brennan’s answers regarding the use of drones on Americans insufficient at times, evasive at others.

    He was particularly troubled by Brennan’s answers regarding the possibility of using drones on U.S. territory; because Brennan would only say the Obama administration “has not carried out” such strikes instead of disavowing the possibility of domestic military action altogether.

    The question which I and many others have asked is not whether the administration has or intends to carry out drone strikes inside the United States, but whether it believes it has the authority to do so. This is an important distinction.

    Paul said the administration as whole has avoided answering this question, and he is determined to block Brennan’s confirmation until someone does.”


    I posted a comment there with an update about those survivors from Benghazi. This link reveals that the SECRET SERVICE seems deployed to keep people away from survivors (or somebody) who’s in the amputee ward at Walter Reed (unless they were there to protect Clinton and Kerry, who allegedly were visiting the survivors).

  24. “Liberal Reporter Helps Prove Obama’s Birth Certificate Has Been Altered”

    Uploaded on February 21, 2013

    • I hope Savannah sees bars in her future!

      This was analyzed and discussed in two articles by Miri.

      A Tangled Web: Tales of Obama’s LFCOLB, Part One
      Miri – Posted on June 8, 2011

      Why is Savannah Guthrie the only journalist to see the original, certified Obama birth certificate in three dimensions, up close and personal?

      Blackberry Brambles: Tales of Obama’s LFCOLB, Part Two

      Miri – Posted on June 22, 2011

      In part one of my analysis, A Tangled Web: Tales of Obama’s LFCOLB, I introduced you to Savannah Guthrie, who remains, so far as we know, the only member of the media who claims to have actually seen, touched, and photographed the original paper document that is said to be a certified copy of Barack Hussein Obama II’s original long-form certificate of live birth (LFCOLB).

      • Thanks for the h/t! I excerpted my stuff before I saw that you linked to it. Wanted to point out the crucial portions, so people don’t have to wade through ALL my snark. 🙂

    • Obot clown! I love it. April 27, 2011–a date that shall live in infamy.

      ” … So Savannah Guthrie, only admitted media visitor to the original LFCOLB, worked for the same law firm at which Vernon Jordan is senior counsel. Her former husband works for Al Jazeera and her current (?) paramour worked for Al Gore but now works for a firm he founded that promotes strategic communication. Vernon Jordan’s grand-niece, Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett, is Obama’s most trusted “advisor” in the WH.

      Guthrie, Jarrett, and Obama moved into the WH, so to speak, right around the same time. Access. It’s all about access.

      The Akin Gump law firm is indeed associated with the SCOTUS blog, through the blog’s founder Tom Goldstein, who once also worked at Akin Gump but left to start his own firm, which now oversees the SCOTUS blog, which explains a lot, as far as what is not discussed or reported there.

      Am I finished yet? Nope. Remember Robert Bauer, who leaves as WH Counsel at the end of June? He’s the lawyer most responsible for fighting the Obama ineligibility lawsuits, which are studiously ignored by the SCOTUS blog. … Bauer is replaced as WH Counsel by his Deputy WH Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler, profiled in Washingtonian Magazine in July, 2006. Ruemmler attended Georgetown University Law Center, and was editor of its law review. She was 35 at the time; she’s now about 40, the same approximate age as Savannah Guthrie. It’s likely they knew each other at Georgetown University Law Center, probably knew each other well, given that Guthrie was a Law Fellow, and Ruemmler (who graduated in 1996) was editor of the law review.

      Access, access, access. That’s what it’s all about in journalism, especially so with the WH press corps. …”

      My next post:

      ” … Zoom in and look closely at the papers in the stack to the left of the document. Do they not also appear to be pages of green, cross-hatched security paper, or do my eyes deceive me? …

      Judith Corley, Obama’s personal lawyer, hand-carried two certified copies of his original LFCOLB back to the WH (if you believe the story). But there appears to be more than one (other) page of security paper in that stack on the left. How could this be? Does the WH staff keep a stock of green, cross-hatched security paper on hand?

      I’m open to other explanations. Is this a photographic anomaly? Can colors bleed over onto other objects within a digital photograph? Can patterns?

      The document in Guthrie’s photo is wider than the image in the WH PDF, which is cropped on both sides. Guthrie’s photo of the document is not actually a full view of the paper (again reminiscent of FactCheck) which can be seen by comparing it to the WH image, below. She cut off the top and bottom of the document (if she photographed the same item represented by the WH PDF). …

      butterdezillion points out that the seal is a different size than the seal supposedly embossed on the FactCheck SFCOLB. And so it is. Easy to see. Just count the crosshatches between the top and bottom of each seal. Different size. …

      Guthrie’s photograph could be a photo of a printout made from the WH PDF; and the WH PDF itself could have been put together from scanned images, at least one of which was a scan of an actual piece of paper that contained an embossed seal, but not necessarily any document belonging to Obama.

      In other words, she may have taken a photograph of a printout made from a PDF that came from a scan of a document that had a raised seal on it. … ”

      That video seems to confirm the above theory. It seems, also, that they used a different “seal embosser” than did the State of Hawaii.

  25. “Sheriff Joe Arpaio Now Investigating Obama Alias Harry Bounel: Obama Mama Was In WA In 1961?”

    “Debt Collector & Skip-Tracer Al Hendershot fired off two updates via Facebook:” [go to link]

    • What Al says is odd because Zullo said multiple times that they’re handling this now exactly like a police investigation and that they’re done with the bloggers and media people. Maybe because Al is a skip-tracer, he doesn’t count? I hope it’s true that there’s solid evidence and that they’re “connecting the dots.” We’ve been trying, too, for a loooooong time. Al writes:

      “I have proof, definitive proof that Stanley Ann Dunham was in WA state in “1961” as per the issuance of a SSN numident in her name with the SSN 535-40-8522. There is no way that she was in HI and I have proof because in the fall she was in college in WA, not HI.”

      Didn’t we know that already? I don’t understand his point. He seems to say she was using two different SS#’s, but I don’t see that from his evidence. Do you?

      • That’s a direct link to Bridgette’s post about SAD’s SS#. It appears to me that Al is saying that because the search he did turns up the date issued as a range between 1959 and 1961, that she got the number in 1961. Could it not be that the numbers prefixed “535” were issued between those years? Bridgette’s post has an image of SAD’s application. She got the number May 22, 1959, when she was 16. Al also says, if I read it correctly, that he has proof she was using two different numbers, but he doesn’t supply the proof (that I can see).

        On another front, Orly apparently is under cyber-attack and obots are posting comments with snarky names (Gaye Barr) in droves. So mature of them, but what more can you expect from morons? She’s apparently filed something that gives more aliases for Barry:
        Barack (Barry) Soetoro
        Barack Hussein Soebarkah
        Barack Hussein Obama
        Barack A. Obama
        Harrison (Harry) J. Bounel
        S. A. Dunham

        And Linda Jordan’s appeal concerning excessive attorneys’ fees has been answered. I’m looking for a non-obot link. Here we go:

        To make it short and not sweet: The AG is arguing that they deserve punitive sanctions, even though it appears that the relief they “won” was attorneys’ fees, not punitive damages. They admit that the judge awarded “reasonable fees” but focus on the word “frivolous” and then say they deserve punitive damages to “deter baseless filings.” I’m no lawyer, but seems that if the judge had awarded them additional “sanctions”, then they would have been spelled out in the order and then Linda’s very intelligent former-judge lawyer would have said there was no point in appealing the sanctions. The way they determine their “reasonable” fees reminds me of how mechanics garages at car dealerships determine labor costs. Have you ever had this experience?

        They work on your car for an hour but charge you for three hours of labor! You ask why and they say they just use an estimate of the amount it OUGHT TO TAKE a mechanic to do the job and that’s what they bill you, even if a nifty, efficient, experienced guy actually takes less time than an inept mechanic!

        The attorneys in this case call it the “lodestar method”. What a joke! I’ll bet guys like Warren Buffet allow their attorneys to get away with this. Reminds me of the lawyers that bill for more than 24 hours in one day!

      • I don’t think that Al shows all of his information. From my article, the phony application form for Ann uses the SS number 535-40-8522. While the last 4 numbers are not seen on Al’s sheet.

        “She states her address as 3206 E. Lexington, Mercer Island, Washington. She was 16 and her birth date was November 29, 1942.” The Mercer Street address is not listed on Al’s datasheet.

        It will probably be explained in the article he is writing.

        • I hope so. I looked for the article, but guess he didn’t write it yet. I noticed that the Mercer address didn’t show up, too.

    • Debt Collector & Skip-Tracer Al Hendershot fired off two updates via Facebook:

      MESSAGE ONE: 2/25/2013

      My friends, what an afternoon. Today, I had a conversation with an investigator from the Cold Case Posse in AZ. We talked and I expanded on several dossiers filled with evidence for over an hour.

      They asked for all of my relevant information on Obama, the Harry Bounel alias evidence, and the dossiers I completed on Stanley Ann Dunham, her parents, and Michelle Obama as well. They have it all.

      BTW they also say that it looks like my information cannot be disproved and will be useful. So yes I am supplying the posse with information and evidence as well. BTW they have not given up. “The real fight is just beginning”. We are connecting the dots my friends.

      MESSAGE TWO: 2/25/2013

      My friends, this needs to go viral…. I have proof, definitive proof that Stanley Ann Dunham was in WA state in “1961” as per the issuance of a SSN numident in her name with the SSN 535-40-8522. There is no way that she was in HI and I have proof because in the fall she was in college in WA, not HI. I will do an article for the Hustle on this bombshell. You tell’em I’m coming and I’m bringing hell with me.

      VIA THE DATABASE PULL: 2/25/2013

      Two different searches using two different social security numbers yielded the same individual with the same DOB and Home Address. This is not coincidence. This is a clear cut case of the use of multiple numidents.



    Betances gets his fifteen minutes of infamy? The WaPo actually runs an article, albeit an opinion piece, about the outrageous, mandatory, and racist “sensitivity training” at the USDA. Although Kathleen Parker cites the important stuff, she ends up deflecting as if this is only a case of teaching people “manners”. Manners? It’s good manners to “teach” (propagandize) people who are FORCED to listen to LIES and deliberately humiliated on account of the color of the skin they were born with? That’s teaching the VICTIMS “manners”? Read it to see what I mean:

    Sensitivity training that leaves a listener numb

    Thanks to Judicial Watch, the conservative-leaning watchdog group, and the Daily Caller, we recently have learned about the Agriculture Department’s magical diversity training programs — i.e., “professional development opportunities” — wherein employees learn how they ought really to “think” about things. Lessons include such angst-inspiring tropes as: The United States has destroyed other nations, we all commit sins of discrimination and America should repent and stop being so proud of itself.

    More or less.

    One does not have to be a flag-waving uber-patriot to find this sort of mind training repugnant, though watching clips of the USDA sessions might help one better understand the recent rush to collect ammunition. …”

    Wow! Love that part about collecting ammunition. I wonder if these lamestream lefties are beginning to feel our pain and feeling a little uncomfortable about what THEY HAVE WROUGHT?

    She does name names: Samuel Betances. I’m glad to see it, although this gives the statist lamestream cover for not covering it in their NEWS pages.

    GOP lawmaker: Obama using fake Twitter messages in fight over gun control

    A Texas Republican on Monday said President Obama’s gun control campaign is a fraud based on fake messages over Twitter. [So’s his election!]

    Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) accused Obama of trying to make support for his position look stronger than it really is by flooding Twitter with messages from people who don’t exist. … [Just like his voters, who don’t exist.]

    Stockman said that in response to Obama’s call for people to tweet their congressman in support of gun control legislation, he received just 16 tweets. But he said all of these messages were identical, and that a closer look at them revealed that only six were from real people.

    “The other 10 are fake, computer-generated spambots,” his office said in a press release. As evidence, he said these 10 tweets use default graphics and names, and have not engaged in any interaction with other people. Two of the tweets were sent at nearly the same time, and both follow just one person: Brad Schenck, Obama’s former digital strategist. [Oh, we need to investigate that guy!]

    Stockman also added that only one of the six tweets from real people is a constituent of his in Texas.

    If you are a real person who contacted us about your support for the president’s anti-gun campaign, we are listening,” Stockman said. “We do not agree with you, but we appreciate your sincere opinions and encourage you to continue to contact us. [What a standup guy!]

    “But the vast majority of the president’s supporters have no feelings because they fake profiles from spammers.” [Fake POtuS and fake supporters.]

    Stockman said Obama’s anti-gun activists “are trying to defraud Congress using the same scam that sells ‘male enhancement pills.‘” [OUCH!!! Some of them NEED male enhancement, but not Mooch, please.]

    Yes, another TEXAS politician. Can the rest of the Congress PLEASE TAKE A CUE FROM TEXAS?

    • Brad A. Schenck.

      Did he have a jop before Obama? Oh, yeah. At Six Flags.

      • He looks like a real charmer. Haunted House design and construction was his beginning job! Exactly what is a digital strategist? Looks like a computer geek/hacker/bot period. The rest of his linked in info is written as fluff.

        • I saw elsewhere that there’s another guy (maybe) by the same name who is a gaming expert. Online games. (Wait! That’s Brad W. not Brad A.) That might fit with this making Haunted Houses and running Twitter campaigns. Odd that he’s a “former”. Not with Organizing for America. Moved on to another career? Paid obot?

          • Speaking of Organizing for Obama- they didn’t register their domains when they changed name to Organizing for Action site, and because they didn’t register they were purchased by people with the NRA, I believe. So now if you click on them, it goes to a NRA site! That is too hilarious. It is all legal, and the OAF is of course, suing, but they don’t have a “Gun” to stand on! I think Breitbart reported on it. Will try to find.

            Obama Fails to Register ‘’; Site Points to NRA Home Page

            Feb. 25, 2013

            At the beginning of the year, President Barack Obama’s new 501(c)4 political nonprofit, Organizing For Action, was launched with all the usual bells and whistles. But the tech wizards at OFA forgot one important rule in today’s Internet world: Register all the iterations of your website address before someone else does. Now Obama’s team is filing complaints against the folks smart enough to get the addresses before he did.

            As Obama’s OFA made its debut, no one in his purportedly Internet-savvy campaign had obtained the corresponding .com, .net, .org or .us sites, nor did OFA register other names that are close to its official one, as is the sensible practice. In the case of the .net address, a fellow named Derek Bovard had already registered the .net address by the time Obama’s team took notice.

            Bovard has routed his new site to the homepage of the National Rifle Association.

            So, whenever anyone goes to they end up seeing the homepage of the NRA.


            • Seriously! That’s great. I did read somewhere (maybe here!) about an astroturfed “free” bus trip to protest gun rights. Pro-gun people are said to be considering registering for the free trip! I love that, too. It’s about time we use their own tactics against them.

            • Wait! Is it Organizing for America or for Action? Oh, these obots. So confusing.


              Republican rep claims Obama backers using fake Twitter accounts in gun-control blitz

              Bloggers first spotted the trend and said they suspected some social media funny business because the senders had sent no other tweets, had no followers and followed nobody.

              In addition, blogger Stacy McCain said his review found the majority of the accounts supporting Obama’s gun-control campaign were created less than 48 hours before a member of Congress was contacted.

              The tweets in question included the #WeDemandAVote hashtag – which President Obama told gun-control supporters to include in their Twitter messages to Congress.

              Stockman is among 16 members of Congress who appear to have received the tweets.

              Stockman also said accounts are linked directly to a former Obama staffer and called on the president to denounce the spamming.

              The White House did not respond to a request for comment. …

              Of the 16 members of Congress who have received the tweets, nine are Democrats and seven are Republicans.

              It looks like (the tweets) are all being run from some uniform website,” said @defendWallSt, among the first to discover the possible irregularities, in a tweet to “My presumption is that the accounts were registered by some organizing group or someone” from Obama for America farmed out the work.”

              WAY TO GO @defendWallSt! Tweeted to FoxNews! I love it. Real grassroots pajamas media. WAY TO FIGHT BACK against PHONEYS!

              LEGAL? Using campaign money, aren’t they? Isn’t that the story? btw, the drudge work was done by people at Michelle Malkin’s and they deserve much credit and kudos!

              Astro-Tweets: Many Obama-Encouraged Gun Control Messages to Congressmen Sent From Fake Twitter Accounts

              At the Hill on Monday, Pete Kasperowicz, employing the establishment press’s usual “mean Republicans attack” spin, is packaging something first aggregated on Friday at Michelle Malkin’s exclusively as an accusation coming from GOP Congressman Steve Stockman of Texas.

              Malkin’s credit-denied crew, with the help of citizen activists who did much of the dirty work, detected what I will call “Astro-Tweets,” a Twitter-driven variant of the campaign tactic known as “astroturfing,” which aims, using a variety of means, to create the illusion of public support for a cause where little or none exists. …”

    • This is probably what a digital strategist does…creates Fake Twitter Followers! All in a day’s work to train others to do the same thing! Bamboozle others into believing that BHO is so popular.

      Obama Has Millions of Fake Twitter Followers [UPDATED]
      Alex Fitzpatrick Aug 24, 2012

      President Obama has nearly 19 million Twitter followers, but 70%, or approximately 13 million of them, are fake or “inactive,” according to a new analysis. About 30% of Obama’s followers — or 5.7 million — were labeled as fake by the analysis, while nearly 40% were found to be inactive.
      The numbers come from Fake Follower Check, a tool from social media firm StatusPeople that analyzes a sampling of a Twitter account’s followers and checks for telltale signs of fake followers. Fake accounts are those thought to be created for the sole purpose of sending spam, while inactive accounts lack recent updates.

      • Oh, yeah! I remember that story. How well we know that the fake POtuS has millions of FAKE FOLLOWERS. Doesn’t Twitter have similar terms of service, like Facebook? Facebook ALLEGEDLY requires people to be REAL. Does Twitter? If so, then the same DemoncRATS who challenged Facebook, to delete accounts about Sandy Hook that were put up by fake people, ought to also demand that all these FAKE tweeters be deleted, too.

      • Another link about Brad. What a surprise! He’s for gay marriage. Lives in CHICAGO!

  28. Wow – This is our new – impressive – Secretary of State – John Kerry. Selling and promoting the US! Another total embarrassment to the US!

    Stupidity – “It’s a virtue and it is something worth fighting for!” By the way, John Kerry helped get another nation recognized.. Well, he really invented another country when.he spoke about “the repressive regime of Kyrzakhstan.” Speaking of stupidity, John!

    Speaking to students in Germany, Secretary of State John Kerry defended the American “right to be stupid — if you want to be.”

  29. What? Whats up with old purple lipps and the gay marrying gay thing-a-ma-jig anyway. Can’t figure out if he is Nell or Butch. That doesn’t matter a damned bit. But what does matter is it seems as if just before some main event happens ol Purple lips begins a push for one of his pet projects.

    Man on man and woman on woman marriage. Now it is said the Pope is resigning due to some homo acts of some kind. Who in hell rigged this or started that?

    Push for gun control and an entire school gets shot up.

    Just back up and look into all this convenient stuff that plays right into the hands and agendas of the damned liberals.
    Even though the sequester was Obama’s idea he is now saying anything bad that comes from it will be the republicans fault and has even put out a state by state list of the bad things to come. John Kerry was right on the news this AM, in his speech he said “America has the right to be stupid”. He is living proof of that.

    The so called Arab Spring, the Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt and the arms supplied to all the Islamics by Obama.

    I know he had no control over the hurricane that wrecked new jersey but they played it to the hilt just as Emanuel advised “Let no good crisis go to waste”. But just how many of these crisis have they staged? I do not put anything out of bounds for any man (or woman) who would vote against a bill that would protect the rights of a new born baby.

    I would like to see a site just for this and show how and why all these bad things have happened at convenient times for the socialist regime that now govern America. West is right they need to get the hell out of America.

  30. Wave of Immigrants Released Ahead of Looming Budget Cuts
    Tuesday, 26 Feb 2013 02:18 PM

    “This appears to be the first staged event of the sequester.
    According to the newspaper, agency officials did not reveal the number of detainees released or where they occurred, but immigration advocates said detainees were released in areas such as Hudson County, N.J., Polk County, Texas, Broward County, Fla., and New Orleans. Releases took place at centers in Arizona, Alabama, Georgia, and New York as well, they said.”

    • And how would they imagine that EVERY American will react to this news? Will they blame the Republicans or BARRY, who’s the one who turned them loose. Will the American People be SO STUPID and SO CRAVEN as to bow to this BLACKMAIL?

    • This is how corrupt they are. The sequester is only a 2% decrease in the amount of INCREASE that they expected. If they can pay to detain those people today, they can pay to detain them tomorrow. They could try Sheriff Joe’s bologna sandwiches, for one thing. But they still have the same amount of money Friday as today. It’s a decrease in the expected INCREASE. It’s no different than if you expected a $1 an hour RAISE on Friday but all you get is 98 cents per hour raise. You still have 98 cents MORE to spend than you have today! I wonder if they planned for this story to get out or if it was a leak? It CANNOT look good for Barry and Naps. It’s going to INFURIATE people. Everybody with an ounce of common sense can see that they’re DELIBERATELY trying to create anger and chaos. It’s ALL UNNECESSARY. The Congress needs to SERIOUSLY look into the money they allocate to EVERY ONE OF THESE DEPARTMENTS that is playing Barry’s game.

  31. they need to get the hell out of yesterday. 🙂

  32. How will they come for YOU & YOU & YOU? …… I wonder…. I have little faith … the strength is “not” around ME… But still I’m THE MAN I put my trust in … as do they … so it may be a 50/50 fight to the death!

  33. A Lie….? …. Automatic Weapons?? …. A Handgun??? OH MY!

    • ABC broadcast edits out Michelle Obama claim that Chicago teen was killed by an ‘automatic weapon’

      In an interview with Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts aired this morning, First Lady Michelle Obama recalled the tragic death of 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton who was shot and killed in Chicago after performing during the President’s Inauguration celebration in Washington D.C.

      “She was caught in the line of fire because some kids had some automatic weapons they didn’t need,” the First Lady explained. “I just don’t want to keep disappointing our kids in this country. I want them to know that we put them first.” [Consider the logic! KIDS already aren’t supposed to own guns, are they? What kid NEEDS a gun? The GUN WAS ALREADY ILLEGAL in Chicago. It didn’t stop the murder.]

      Chicago police reported, however, that Pendleton was shot by a man who “opened fire with a handgun before fleeing in a waiting car” according to the Associated Press. …

      For the broadcast, ABC’s Good Morning America producers edited out the First Lady’s “automatic weapon” line….”

      A double story. She LIES, she repeats the meme, and then the statist media cover for her LIE.

  34. Jonah’s comment at CW:

    February 26, 2013 at 11:31 am

    “I was in Tucson last week and had the opportunity to talk with a family friend who served as Postmaster for 30 years in Illinois. I showed him the post mark of Obama’s 1980 Selective Service registration. I did not show him the entire document, only a copy of the postmark.

    As many of you may already know there is controversy about the year, 1980, on the registration. It reads “08″ when it should be “1980″ and the “08″ is not centered. Well, former postmaster’s response was that he’d never seen anything like that before. He went on to explain to me how the date is changed on the stamp. His exact words were, “That can’t be official”.

    If Obama registered for the draft in 1980 why did the SS provide a falsified document under FOIA?”

    • Of course it can’t be official. That’s because it’s NOT official. But that illustrates perfectly how corrupt our entire government has become. If that document is forged, it came from the Selective Service in response to a FOIA request. THAT is the definition of corruption and treason.

  35. Perfect timing by the WH to complete their fear mongering for the masses. The GOP questions their methodology for the chart. This is how the Democrats usually work, so no surprise. They created this fine economy of the jobless and intend to make it worse. How can they do anything with out a budget to prioritize anyway? Just keep paying your taxes so they can spend every cent and then some. It appeared to me that it was his peeps that would be most affected. May they eat their votes.

    New York Times
    THE WHITE HOUSE, WASHINGTON, DC… February 27, 2013

    Today the White House warned that if the scheduled financial sequester takes place on March 1, the day will have to be shortened by 4.3%.

    Following a grim introduction by President Obama, White House Astronomer Dr. Karl Wretchman gave a press briefing this morning on the implications of such a shortfall. “Because of the Republicans’ refusal to allow a tax increase on the wealthiest Americans while demanding a cut in government spending on blind, homeless children, the Obama Administration has no choice but to cut the length of the day by one hour and three minutes, effective March 1. And the day may have to be further shortened if Republican intransigence does not change.”

Susan now reports the court reporter scrubbed parts of the court transcript:”


    $253.5B—Obama Borrowed Nearly 6x as Much in February as Sequester Cuts All Year

    During the month of February–as President Barack Obama was warning Americans they would see dramatic effects in their lives if “sequestration” of some planned federal spending kicked in–the federal government’s debt climbed by $253.5 billion.

    That one-month increase in the debt was nearly six times as much as the $44 billion in spending cuts the Congressional Budget Office estimates will take place in all of fiscal 2013 as a result of sequestration. …”
