Benghazi Coverup: The Look on The Face Tells All!

The poster below,...a low blow? Not really when you consider:

  • The President not only knew when the Benghazi attacks were happening, but that they were terrorist attacks not a demonstration turned violent,...and he watched the attacks in real time via a Predator video link. 
  • Obama lied and Men Died.  Men died several hours to seven hours after first requesting help that would never come.  Obama lied to the American people on television and through press conferences. 
  • Within 24 hours after the attacks concluded, Obama was in California hob knobbing with fund raisers, then off to New York to be with his rap star buddies.      

Now we have new information contradicting President Obama's statement that he ordered the military to respond. The Secretary of Defense, Director of the CIA and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs on all together not not getting that order.

Furthermore, Obama has arrested or fired the Africa Command (AFRICOM) Commander General Carter Ham who operational area Libya sat within, AND, has re-called (removed from command) Rear Admiral Charles Gaouette the US Navy Carrier Strike Force Commander off the coast of Libya.

The latest information concerning General Ham and Admiral Gaouette is that that General Ham as head of AFRICOM received the same e-mails the White House received requesting help/support as the attack was taking place. General Ham immediately had a rapid response unit ready and communicated to the Pentagon that he had a unit ready.

General Ham then received the order to stand down. His response was to screw it, he was going to help anyhow. Within 30 seconds to a minute after making the move to respond, his second in command apprehended General Ham and told him that he was now relieved of his command.

The question now is whether the American people will hold to account the chain of command responsible for leaving our people behind, fabricating a politically expedient story, and continuing to sell the now defunct lie(s) even after all of their variations of the story were found to be false and misleading.

A General who made the decision to assist diplomatic and intelligence assets on the ground has been arrested and will likely be retired or worse, while those who ordered the removal of embassy security details and ordered U.S. forces to stand-down are left to go on about their business and likely risk more American lives in the future. source:

Additionally, we have learned that Rear Adm. Charles M. Gaouette was replaced a short time after assuming duties whose area of operations just happen to coincide with Libya. So now we have two very senior officers, one a Combatant Commander (AFRICOM Commander GEN Ham), the other in charge of a Carrier Task Force (Rear Adm. Charles M. Gaouette), who would have been able to respond to requests for help from the embassy in Libya, both relieved of their duties.

Obama's Budget,...err,.Non-Budget?

Obama's Budget, an explanation from Ray Stevens.  Keep in mind that Obama did present a budget which received zero,...nada,....zilch,......did I say not even one "yes" vote from Congress?

2013 - the Year of The Tax?

No doubt that if Barack Obama is re-elected then not only will obamacare continue to stand as the law and bring the increases of taxes down upon the already over burdened American people, but also a new Obama term bring an end to the temporary Bush tax cuts which have been the only government action that has benefitted the middle class.

With Obama winning another term, and despite the poor economy, you will never hear him say (again) that imposing new or higher taxes is the wrong thing to do in a weak economy. You will hear him say things like: "Everyone needs to pay their fair share", then under his breath "and for you rich people that fair share is going to be a much, much higher percentage",.....people making $200,00 or couples making $250,000 or more will be taxed at the 39.5% rate - and remember this tax is just for federal incme tax. It does not include all the other taxes we pay which bring out tax burden to half or hat we make and more.

Don't forget about Joe Biden outright lying at the Vice-Presidential debates when he said "Obama would only raise taxes on people making $1,000,000 a year or more." Joe Biden got a pass from the legacy media about this lie.

The Democrats, trying to paint themselves as looking out for the middle class, pushed a temporary reduction in the Social Security payroll tax, which was very stupid since the relief it provided was small and the social security program that is going bankrupt, now just alittle quicker.  But this temp pay roll tax cut was in keeping with their general trait of trying to bankrupt this country. Just look at three main points:

1. No Federal Government budget is three years!!
2. Over $1 trillion in deficit spending per year since Obama came into office.
3. A federal debt, burdening our children and grandchildren, at over $16 trillion and growing every second.

Anyway, when Romney gets elected and the temporary social security payroll tax expires just watch the cockroaches,....I mean the Democrats,....try to paint him as a middle class taxer.

Race in Politics

An Associated Press article, by Jennifer Agiesta and Sonya Ross, titled: Poll: Majority harbor prejudice against blacks surmises that racial attitudes have not improved in the four years since the United States elected its first black president, as a slight majority of Americans now express prejudice toward blacks whether they recognize those feelings or not.

In all, 51 percent of Americans now express explicit anti-black attitudes, compared with 48 percent in a similar 2008 survey. When measured by an implicit racial attitudes test, the number of Americans with anti-black sentiments jumped to 56 percent, up from 49 percent during the last presidential election. In both tests, the share of Americans expressing pro-black attitudes fell.

Those views could cost President Barack Obama votes as he tries for re-election, the survey found, though the effects are mitigated by some Americans' more favorable views of blacks, yet Andra Gillespie, an Emory University political scientist, says "President Obama's election clearly didn't change those who appear to be sort of hard-wired folks with racial resentment".

Cowboys and Tea Parties Comments: There has been an over use of the race card associated any conservative view, policy stance, or proposal as being racist. In the beginning this tactics by the left certainly caused Conservatives to be very careful about phrasing everything from speches to policy, however with the race card's overuse and with conservative politicians such as Herman Cain exposing the use of the race card to scare and motivate minority voters, the impact of the race card is getting very tiresome.

Americans can certainly dislike, not vote for and even hold Obama in contempt without it being a race issue.

Recently John Sununu said words to the effect that Colin Powell is supporting Obama because he is black. I think he backed off those comments because of the racial accusations, yet 95% of Blacks vote for Obama and nobody discusses the probability that at least some of these are voting their race. It has been put forward that 11% of Americans (presumably White) would not vote for Obama simply because he is Black. Wonder how the percetnage was derived?

The bottom line is that anybody,...anybody who uses race as their determination for who gets their vote is pathetic. This goes for Whites, Blacks, Hispanics,....everyone.

Latest on the Benghazi Coverup

The Latest on the Benghazi Coverup It seems like with each new day, new facts are exposed on the depth of the Obama coverup for him and his Administrations failures following the terrorist attack on our consulate on Benghazi, Libya where our Ambassador and three embassy employees were killed.

Now with the release of several e-mails showing that in almost real time, Obama and his key leaders knew this was a terrorist attack. The reasons eluded us for a time. We knew that the terrorist attacks would undermine Obama's message that he has defeated Al Qaeda as well as require some U.S. response which would place Obama at odds with his radical Islamist buddies. But it still didn't make sense,...why risk the election on trying to portray this as a popular demonstration gone deadly following some stupid anti-Muslim videos.

Now further information has been exposed providing a much better reason for the attempted coverup. Because 1 - the Obama Adminstration was requested to approve an upgrade in security due to threat streams and that security aproval never happened being stymied at the White House, and 2 - Obama did nothing during the attacks when the possibility exists that the Ambassador and three Americans may have still been alive seven hours after the start of the attack.

Obama administration ass clowns Leon Panetta (DoD Secretary) and General Dempsey (Chairman of the Joint Chiefs) were called to help damage control after facts came out that the military had assets including Navy jets and helicopters, plus Special Operatons Troops within one hour or so from the Benghazi target area.

Obama is also reeling from another fact that a reconnaissance drone was overhead observing and providing live feeds of the entire attack.

The vision of cockroaches scrambling for cover has recently been re-newed with Panetta and Dempsey holding a joint conference where they put forth many diverse excuses for the lack f military response including: "The basic principle is that you don't deploy forces into harm's way without knowing what's going on,....without having some real-time information about what's taking place," Panetta said. Really!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME! You had real time e-mail reports and a dam drone over the consulate!!!

Then the final nail in the coffin of this administration, or what some commentators call misfeasance on a scale 1,000 times more than the Fast and Furious gun running scandal, that Secretary of State Clinton had requested an approval to upgrade security at the Libyan Facilities and that request went un-acted upon, or disapproved by the White House.

This should bring down the Administration. Due to the deaths of Americans and the Adminstration (Obama, Biden, Clinton and UN Rep Rice) lying about all steps before, during and after the terrorist attacks, there should be impreachment proceedings and resignations forthcoming right now!

Religion in Politics

As reported on The Blaze, The Reverend Billy Graham launched a nationwide campaign with a full-page ad in The Wall Street Journal.

The ad (depicted to the left) shows Reverend Graham with the text "Vote Biblical Values". The ad advocates voters to leave behind a “legacy” for the future by casting “ballots for candidates who base their decisions on biblical principles.”

Graham, not known to previously get involved in politics has involved himself in efforts to defend traditional marriage, supporting a North Carolina’s Amendment that successfully added an amendment to the state’s constitution banning gay marriage.

While we support the ban on the use of the word "marriage" for gay partnerships, thinking that a "civil union" would esentially reflect the same rights, the issue of gay marriage isn't our primary, line in the sand issue because if this country's economy tanks,....if the rest of the World continues to test us because of our non-engaged foreign policy,....if the rest of the world cuts off our oil supply because this Adminstration fails to allow for exploiting our resources, short,.... if Barack Obama is elected again, then it won't matter what they call it whens Gay's and the like do whatever they do,....we won't have much a country left to matter, and people in food lines will care less.

He just may well see that the people supporting gay marraige re the same onws who support large fedral government, deficit spending, appeasment of Islamic extremists, proponents of unions and corruption, and, the ones trying to tear God out of our life.  From the liberals mistaken concepts of separation of Church and State, to Obama declaring this is not a Christian Nation.  We are under attack from all angles.  Billy Grahma gets it.  

We appreciate a man of Reverent Graham's character realizing this election is the most important one in history and glad he sees the need to get politically involved. God Bless You, Reverend Billy Graham.

As a bonus watch the video of Congressman Paul Ryan explaining why Religious freedom is our first freedom.

The ObamaCare Survival Guide

Hopefully this point will become mute in November when Mitt Romney gets elected President,....but just in case we and this Country loses again, the Obamacare Survival Guide, written in simple language by award-winning journalist and health author Nick J. Tate, is available to help citizens and small business owners navigate the pitfalls and problems that will undoubtedly negatively impact your life.

The Tea Party Net published this primer on the Obamacare Survival Guide:  

Intentional Pitfall #1: Robbing Peter to Pay Paul
ObamaCare essentially 'robs Peter to pay Paul'. How? Well, if you're a senior, you'll be fleeced by the $716 billion in Medicare cuts designed to substantially fund the ObamaCare plan over the next decade. As you'll read in the ObamaCare Survival Guide, the biggest Medicare spending cuts will come in two key areas you need to know about in order to protect yourself. And that's just the beginning…

Intentional Pitfall #2: Insurance Companies Free to Pass On Increased Costs 
Under the new ObamaCare mandates, insurance companies will have free rein to pass on their increased costs to you in the form of: • Higher premiums • Higher co-pays • Higher deductibles There are no specific price controls to keep the insurance industry in check. Even AARP, the powerful lobby representing American seniors, has already increased the health insurance premiums of its employees from 8 to 13%.  

Intentional Pitfall #3: Widespread Doctor Shortage Expected
While many Americans are unhappy with ObamaCare, doctors have been particularly angry. The earning potential of doctors is expected to dwindle due to lowered payment rates for Medicare, among other things. Up to 40% of physicians could retire or seek a non-clinical or even a non-medical job. And with 30 million more Americans on healthcare insurance plans, not only could there be a medical 'brain drain', but also long drives and long waits to see a doctor.  

Intentional Pitfall #4: Delayed Implementation and Hundreds of Unwritten Rules
Shockingly, many of the rules and regulations needed to make the new healthcare system function correctly haven't even been written yet. And as costs inevitably balloon higher than expected, benefits for consumers are likely to degrade significantly, particularly for seniors, the highest users of healthcare services.  

Intentional Pitfall #5: Unelected Government Officials Will Have Total Control to Make Decisions about Your Healthcare
"Healthcare commissars" who don't have to worry about being elected by the American people will have undemocratic, totalitarian powers to cut Medicare spending and make decisions on your behalf as a so-called Independent Payment Advisory Board. And this is just the tip of the iceberg…....

Facts Checkers Correct Over Stimulus Jobs? No!

After the Vice Presidential debate concluded, fact checkers were all over the place with their opinions on the statements and validity of both Vice President Joe Biden and Congressman Paul Ryan.

However, when the fact checkers use Obama Administration figures to determine the "facts" on what is said by the candidates,.....well, the credibility is reduced to say the least.

When Congressman Ryan said that Obama's stimulus did minimal is anything to help the economy, Fact Checkers came out and rebutted Ryan's comment by saying that Obama's $800+ billion stimulus created 3 million jobs. SO,....instead of rebutting the myth of 3 million jobs being created we'll look at the cost effectiveness of the stimulus,.....

So if we take what the fact checkers say as truth then the $800 billion the Federal Government spent on creating 3 million jobs comes out to $266,666.66 per job. And this is something to be proud of? Are you kidding me? This is why the fiscal competency of the Administration is non-existant and the faith ofthe American people have bottomed out.

Libya Debacle: Cover Up or Incompetence?

Cartoons come from perspective,.sometimes wrong sometimes just a populat idea. In the case of cartoons, or political commentary on the Obama Administration's lying about the Libyan terrorist attack, hoping that it would be lost on the screen until after the elections. Now we have the news that within 24 hours of the deadly attack, the CIA station chief in Libya reported to Washington that there were eyewitness reports that the attack was carried out by militants. And we have yet to get any sort of explanation on why, for weeks, the Obama administration blamed it on an out-of-control demonstration over an American-made video ridiculing Islam's Prophet Muhammad.

Good News for Romney

....and indeed the Nation as reports come out from all over the country that Romney is taking the lead in National polls and well as some of the battleground states:

From a internet based poll with 4,582 votes, Obama has 43% while Romney 57%.

A National Constitution Center projected electoral vote count places Romney at a 206 to 201 advantage. Of course it takes 270 electoral votes to win the election, but the good news is that Romney prevously was tallied at around 160 and Obama supposedly had 250 electoral votes locked up. So that basically leaves 131 electoral votes up for grabs, at least by Real Clear Politics’ count.

SO, why has the presidential race changed so dramatically? According to Newt Gingrich the change in polling results, attitudes, and news media coverage in the last three weeks has been as decisive as any campaign in his lifetime, and this is mostly due to the first debate between Obama and Romney where Romney absolutely stomped the President.

And this change has to also be impacted, positively for the Republicans, due to the Vice Presidential debate where Ryan did better than Biden, according to the fair polls, and also due to Romney beating Obama on the second debate.

Another factor is that the American people got to see Romney and their observations refutted the character deflammation conducted by Obama and the Democrats. For the first time in over a year I am thinking there is hope for this country.

Obama's Failed Energy Agenda

Failed energy agenda. A123 the latest in a long line of alternative energy companies gone bankrupt with tax payer money. When is Obama going to not only quit picking winners and losers and using our money to do so, but to quit picking just the losers? A123 received a total in $374 million in tax payer funded grants and credits and another $529 million for Fisker Automotive to make cars for A123 batteries for a total of $901 million,..can you believe it!

Obama likes to say that drilling is at an all time time in this country. And his latest excuse on why gasoline prices are high, twice as high now as they were when he took office, Obama say's the "failed Bush economy" that he inherited artificially drove gas prices down.

Here are the facts: With a "green" agenda burdening the American people, conventional fuel producers, namely coal and oil (gas) have incurred more costs now than ever before. There are more drilling operations on-going now than four years ago, but the increase is on private lands which the Obama administration has tried to shut down or over regulate. Drilling on federal lands including off shore is down 14%. Let's say that again,...down 14%.

SO basically you have a President saying one thing and doing another, with the exception that Obama did say he was going to shut down the coal industry......actually he intends on "bankrupting the coal industry". If you live in a coal mining state, then voting for Obama is just plain un-comprehensible.

We have said this before,...not only is this an economic issue, this is a national security issue letting foreign countries and notably some of our enemies control the export of oil to this country.

The Apple Does Not Fall Far From The Tree

Jesse Jackson Jr. is the Target of a Criminal Investigation, is the title of a Yahoo News Report concerning the Missing in Action Congressman from Chicago. His actions remind me of the kid in the playground who gets caught doing something bad then feigns sickness to receive sympthay and to have his wrong doing's over looked. Well, what do you exect from the kid of the Reverend Jesse Jackson who has made a living at racial extortion and self service to himself, as well as having mistresses while protraying himself as a Man of God?

In what's shaping out to be a pretty dreadful year for Jesse Jackson's Jr., the Chicago congressman who has been on medical leave for bipolar disorder is now the subject of a criminal investigation for misusing campaign money to spruce up his house.

The Wall Street Journal's Devlin Barrett and Evan Perez report that a FBI probe of Jackson is in its "final stages ... according to people familiar with the matter," with the possibility of an indictment coming before the November election. The paper reports Jackson's attorneys tried to get assurances that an indictment wouldn't come before Nov. 6, but Justice Department officials refused to make any promises. He's alleged to have "misused campaign money to decorate his house," reports the Journal.

Evidence of a probe's existence first appeared in the Chicago Sun-Times on Friday, but the paper didn't report why the congressman was being investigated. Sources did tell the paper, however, that it involved Jackson's finances. After the Journal leapfrogged the Sun-Times last night, the paper followed up with details of some unusual activity involving the sale of Jackson's home, which seems to have tipped off investigators:

The Jacksons put their Washington, D.C., home on the market last month at a price of $2.5 million. The listing was public and included the property’s address as well as multiple photos of the inside of the home. A campaign spokesman said at the time that home was put on the market to pay for mounting medical bills... A day after the D.C. listing was made public, the couple subsequently took it back off the market, citing a security issue.

If you're keeping track of Jackson's legal problems at home, this probe has nothing to do with an earlier investigation into Jackson and disgraced ex-Gov. Rod Balgojevich who was accused of scheming to sell off Barack Obama's old Senate seat. (Jackson denied any wrongdoing in that matter.) When it comes to this current investigation, no one knows if it was slowed down by Jackson's surprise disappearance in June which was later attributed to treatment for bipolar disorder and intestinal problems at the Mayo Clinic.

Whatever the case, Jackson's intestinal problems aren't preventing him from having a drink at DC watering hole Bier Baron, according to Gawker's John Cook.

According to two independent sources, Jackson was spotted drinking at Bier Baron Tavern ... on Tuesday and Wednesday nights last week. Each night, he was accompanied by a different woman. According to both sources, Jackson was drinking. "They were laughing and very focused on each other," one source said of Jackson's demeanor on Wednesday night. "Not sure when they left but I saw them there around 10:30 p.m. They didn't appear intoxicated or loud, but were definitely enjoying themselves."

The establishment formerly known as the Brickskeller, is a basement/restaurant bar famous for its huge selection of international beers. That may win him the respect of craft beer drinkers but not the Chicago Tribune. Last week, the newspaper withheld its endorsement from him, saying it's an "open-ended question" as to whether he'll ever get back to work, listing Republican Brian Woodworth as a "viable alternative."

Senator Feinstein Calls for High Gas Price Investigation

Senator Diane Feinstein, D-CA, is calling for an investigation as California gas prices hit record highs. Feinstein called on the Federal Trade Commission to investigate, saying residents need to be protected from "malicious trading schemes" and "speculators".

Hey Senator, get a clue. Your investigation should be on all the new regulatory obstacles that the Obama Administration has put in place to diminsh not only our ability to harvest and exploit our natural energy reserves, but the national security risks we encumber not doing so.

Why has permits for energy exploration and harvesting on Federal lands been reduced over the past four years? Why is the Obama Administration in contempt of court for not allowing off shore drilling in the Gulf? Why has Obama given $90 Billion tax payers bucks to alternative energy firms, all of which have gone bankrupt, and all of which are owned or have primary investors who are also Obama campaign contributors?  Why has Obama given tax payer money for off shore drilling in South America for companies with links to George Soros?

Worst of all, Obama brags about an increase in drilling permits when the increase is in drilling on private lands despite his Administration's efforts to shut this down. Yes Senator Feinstein, lets get an investigation on high gas prices going, but's let investigate the right cause of it.

American Capitalism Gone With A Whimper

Remember these words"  "The World will Snicker."

American Capitalism Gone With A Whimper, a Russian Pravda article by Stanislav Mishin.

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American descent into Marxism is happening with breathtaking speed, against the backdrop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years. The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.

Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.

First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas than the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their "right" to choke down a McDonalds burger or a Burger King burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our "democracy". Pride blind the foolish.

Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different "branches and denominations" were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the "winning" side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the "winning" side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America.

The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America's short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Weimar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.

These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, losses, and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more then ordinary street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes. Should we congratulate them?

These men, of course, are not an elected panel but made up of appointees picked from the very financial oligarchs and their henchmen who are now gorging themselves on trillions of American dollars, in one bailout after another. They are also usurping the rights, duties, and powers of the American congress (parliament). Again, congress has put up little more than a whimper to their masters.

Then came Barack Obama's command that GM's (General Motors) president step down from leadership of his company. That is correct, dear reader, in the land of "pure" free markets, the American president now has the power, the self-given power, to fire CEOs and we can assume other employees of private companies, at will. Come hither, go dither, the centurion commands his minions.

So it should be no surprise that the American president has followed this up with a "bold" move of declaring that he and another group of unelected, chosen stooges will now redesign the entire automotive industry and will even be the guarantee of automobile policies. I am sure that if given the chance, they would happily try and redesign it for the whole of the world, too. Prime Minister Putin, less then two months ago, warned Obama and UK's Blair, not to follow the path to Marxism, it only leads to disaster. Apparently, even though we suffered 70 years of this Western sponsored horror show, we know nothing, as foolish, drunken Russians, and so let our "wise" Anglo-Saxon fools find out the folly of their own pride.

Again, the American public has taken this with barely a whimper...but a "free man" whimper.

So, should it be any surprise to discover that the Democratically controlled Congress of America is working on passing a new regulation that would give the American Treasury department the power to set "fair" maximum salaries, evaluate performance, and control how private companies give out pay raises and bonuses? Senator Barney Frank, a social pervert basking in his homosexuality (of course, amongst the modern, enlightened American societal norm, as well as that of the general West, homosexuality is not only not a looked down upon life choice, but is often praised as a virtue) and his Marxist enlightenment, has led this effort. He stresses that this only affects companies that receive government monies, but it is retroactive and taken to a logical extreme, this would include any company or industry that has ever received a tax break or incentive.

The Russian owners of American companies and industries should look thoughtfully at this and the option of closing their facilities down and fleeing the land of the Red as fast as possible. In other words, divest while there is still value left.

The proud American will go down into his slavery without a fight, beating his chest, and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is. The world will only snicker.

Shame On You, General Dempsey

We have had about enough from Joints Chief Chairman Lt Gen Martin Dempsey. He is a disgrace to the uniformed services.

Dempsey trying to shut down Veterans Free Speech. Earlier this year, which we reported on, a group of military special operations veterans formed a group called "OPSEC" from which to critize President Obama over Obama taking credit in killing Osama bin Laden and for the repeated leaks of classified information coming from his Administration intended to support Obama political goals.

In an interview with Fox News, Dempsey said: “If someone uses the uniform, whatever uniform, for partisan politics, I am disappointed because I think it does erode that bond of trust we have with the American people.” Hopefully Dempsey isn't a total idiot. He has to realize that these veterans, now out of uniform and out of the active military are not longer bound by the Hatch Act and have their full first admentment rights restored. This group of veterans, again called OPSEC, are the patriots,.....standing up for what is right and rallying against what is wrong, while Dempsey keeps to his own political agenda trying to supress derogatory information about the Obama Administration. Dempsey also said that such veteran's political commentary "confuses the people".  What!?!?

All of this follows General Dempsey rebuking Republican Congressman Ryan for suggesting the military leadership had concerns about President Obama's new goal of another $400 billion in cuts to free up money for domestic spending. Well, someone, and in this case it is Congressman Ryan, had to stand up for the defense of this country since you are doing it.  Shame on you General Dempsey.

Perpetuating the Generals Club. Several Army Generals have been in the news in a derogatory fashion recently. being investigated for various crimes.

First it was General William “Kip” Ward, the General in charge of the Africa Command, caught reimbursing himself for personal travel expenses, taking his wife on military aircraft without sufficient justification and allowing his wife to use a government vehicle without authorization.  Additionally, General Ward reportedly spent $18,500 on mementos to give as gifts at his change-of-command ceremony, accepted free meals and tickets to a Broadway show from a prohibited source, and committed other related violations. 

Secondly Army Brig. General Jeffrey Sinclair, of the 18th Airborne Corps, is accused of having inappropriate relationships with several female subordinates, including forced sodomy. Additionally, Sinclair is up on charges of violating an order, possessing pornography and alcohol while deployed, misusing a government travel charge card and filing fraudulent claims. General Dempsey thinks that General Sinclair should be allowed to retire at his full rak with full benefits. This not only looks like it, but it is perpetuating the Generals Club where these politicians in uniform (we cannot call them warriors, because warriors have an ethos) cover up for each other. Shame on you General Dempsey. If this was an enlisted soldier, you would have his ass.

Supporting Radical Islam over this Country's security. As if covering for his General buddies and trying to supress free speech of veterans wasn't enough, General Dempsey under presure from some 57 Muslim Organizations, shut down a class taught at the Joint Forces Staff College that presented Islam in a negative way.

Earlier this year, Army Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Dooley was condemned by the Joints Chiefs of Staff (JCS) and relieved of his duties teaching classes at the Joint Forces Staff College because these Muslim Organizations petitioned General Dempsey and Dempsey rolled over on his back for them and had Dooley and the anti-Islam class removed.

Not only that, but Lt. Col. Dooley, a highly decorated combat veteran with nearly 20 years of service, received a bad evaluation so his career is effectively ended.

These facts come out after General Dempsey reportedly bad mouthed Dooley on a C-SPAN interview and after it had been revealed that this course taught by Dooley had been previously approved by the the Joint Forces Staff College.

Following Obama's Lead in Pushing Israel Away. Finally, Dempsey steps on it again when he made the comments to the effect , "I don't want to be complicit if Israel choose to attack Iran (to stop their nucelar weapons program)." Some commentators are asking Dempsey to explain these comments, which he has yet to do, and have asked the meaning of his use of the word "complicit". Complicit? As in what? Complicit as in undermining what the Muslim Community wants you to do? After all they were pretty effective in getting you (Dempsey) into standing up for radical Islam by shutting down the course on radical Islam and throwing a decorated officer, Lt. Col. Dempsey to the wolves. Again, shame on you General Dempsey.

Obama's Biggest Mistake

President Obama, while pandering,..err,...while campaigning to the Hispanic vote on Univision said that his biggest mistake was not getting immigration reform passed during his first four years in office.

Really? He did not even float an immigration reform plan, unlike George Bush who presented a plan but was rebuffed by Congress. His biggest mistake was not getting immigration reform passed?

In the shadow of high unemployment, manufacturing jobs leaving the United States,.....decreasing quality of life for all Americans,....decreasing value of the dollar,....increasing fuel and food prices,.....welfare rolls and numbers of Americans on poverty increasing,........ and this clown say's his biggest mistake was not passing immigration reform?

When pressed on breaking his previous promise to Hispanics to get immigration reform (read "open borders") passed, Obama could not even take individual responsibility for the obvious broken promise, saying "He was "naive" and was road blocked by the Republicans." Really? When you had overwhelming control of both the House and the Senate for the first two years?

And another thing is most of the people watching the video only have eyes and ears for Obama saying something about changing Government from the outside,...oh yeah, that's another promise. Here's part of that Univision interview,..listen closely for the "My Biggest mistake was not enacting Immigration reform."

This Week's Political Rollup

Presidential Debate. All the cockroaches certainly came out of woodwork after Romney smashed Obama Wednesday night at the first Presidential Debate. DNC Communications Chief Brad Woodhouse said that "Romney was lying". Al Gore, a failed human being, attributed Obama "not being on a his A game" because of the altitude (less oxygen) of Denver - the debate site.  The Democrats cannot debate on the facts, nor Obama's record.  They rely soley on attack politics to take the voters focus away from the facts.  

Obama's Failed Economy. Califonia gas prices all time high. The price of gasoline hit an all time high in California of $4.61 a gallon Saturday, fueled by a reduced supply and a volatile market. There are reports of gas as high at $5.80 in many California locations.

Obama say's one thing but his policies, restrictions and his regulatory happy Adminstration is doing something else all together, and that is mortgaging our national security and lowering our standard of living by refusing to leverage our national energy assets...instead relying on importing our energy needs. Instead he throws billions of dollars, $90 billion in fact, into failed alternative energy sources owned by his campaign contributors. And we now pay twice as much for gasoline as we did when he took office.

Unemployment. The Obama Administration comes out with new unemployment numbers, just three days after his debacle on stage at the Presidential debates and 30 days before the General Election. Wow, talk about good timing. He say's the unemployment rate has dropped from 8.1% to 7.8% and of course if using this figure as "proof" that his economic principles are working. Really?

There are less people working today desite the new 7.8% unemployment rate than the lowest number of workers during the 8 year Bush Administration, why is that if Obama's policies are working?

Most economists were expecting a slight rise in the unemployment rate, so the number has raised suspicions that the White House might be cooking the books ahead of the election next month. Then we find out that actual public sector lost over 5,000 jobs and the "rise" in jobs was due to a projection of additional government jobs,.....yes, a projection.

And then reports that while only 114,000 jobs were created in September--which would have translated into a rise in unemployment from 8.1% to 8.2%--the unemployment rate fell dramatically to 7.8%. That unusual drop is the fastest in nearly three decades and one reason was the rise was an upward revision of 86,000 to the July and August jobs numbers--all of which came from a 91,000 increase in the estimate of public sector jobs.

Of course, the Obama Adminstration is not including the 2.5 million people who have stopped looking for work - because there is none to be found; the 12 million who are under employed working for wages far below their education and experience level and the 8.8 million who can only find part time work.

Shame on you Obama - you promised you would be a one term President if you didn't make things better - now you have made them worse. Keep you promise and leave office.

Libyan Consulate attacks. In yet another example that Obama has taken the reputation of the U.S. to an all time low, and after trying to convince the American people that the Libyan Consulate attack was caused by a spontaneous demonstration gone violent rather than a planned, well armed terrorist attack on the anniversary of 9-11, not to mention a follow-on investigations that didn't get started for three weeks allowing Libyans and even news groups to ravage the site and scoop up classfified information, e-mail's and employee reports are coming to light about the Libyan Consulate's repeated requests for additional security which was denied by Hillary's State Dept and the Obama Administration.

In fact there was a Special Forces team in Libya providing security and assessing the threat. They were removed before the 9-11 anniversary and after their repeated requests for additional security measures, which were not fulfilled.

Coming on the heels of Obama's foreign policy blunder of a giant magnitude when he received Muslim Brotherhood members to the White House and refused to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, one cannot come to any other conclusion that we do indeed have an amateur in the White House. Let's send him back to Chicago.

Opinion on America's Debt Problem

With the Federal Debt now at $16 Trillion plus dollars and the annual Federal Deficit running at over $1 Trillion AND with no end in sight, the following quote takes on new meaning, especially after the $5+ Trillion dollars that Obama and his Administration has added to the burden for our children and grand children.

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better." 

~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006

Poll: Better Off? - Worse Off?

Even the bastion of liberalism, Yahoo!, could not keep the masses from speaking their piece on this poll. Incidentally the poll is still going on

As of Sunday night 9:30 Eastern time, with the 341,802 voting on the questions "Are you better off now than four years ago?", the results are:

Yes, I'm doing better. 28%

No, I'm worse off. 51%

I'm in the same situation. 21%

This is reason enough to spend Obama back to Chicago.

Why I Changed my Vote

From the website with the same name, Why I Changed my Vote, which showcases Democrats, some prominent, some not so prominent that are changing their vote because Obama's "hope and change" became "misery and lies".

Artur Davis Former Congressman (D-AL)

Rep. Artur Davis served in Congress from 2003-2011 and was co-chair for President Obama's 2008 campaign. He voted against the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), and after years of disappointment with the president's policies, Rep. Davis endorsed Gov. Romney.

Obama Sighting on Golf Course - Are You Suprised?

Great thinking.....Combining Obama's penchant for avoiding any leadership role,..hence the "empty chair" concept pioneered by Clint Eastwood, and Obama's tendency to push off the affairs of government in order to golf - something he had done twice as more as any other President in history.

Political Conversation with a Young Woman

I was listening to Mark Levin last night when he admonished everyone to get out and talk to people about what is at stake in this years Presidential election. So he gave me the idea to recount a conversation I had with a 29 year old young lady. The conservation started about the argument to legalize drugs or NOT!,....the Tea Party,.....illegal immigration,.....and then into alternative fuels, where I pick up the conversation.....

Me: "You're right, we need to be able to use waste products to create bio fuels. I fully support research into that."

Young Lady: "Yeah but, the technology is current. Lots of people make biofuels now for diesel vehicles."

Me: "You are correct, but the production costs are so high to manufacture bio fuels is that conventional petroleum products are infinently cheaper."

Young Lady: "Well at least you can say that Obama is on the right track developing solar and wind power so we don't have to pollute so much."

Me: "Obama hasn't done anything except give away tax payers money to solar firms that have all failed, and failed to pay back the government, again tax payers, money."

Young Lady: "Well, Obama is also drilling more oil, so I guess he is hedging his bets. I heard or read that under his leadership there is more drilling than ever before."

Me: "First of all, leadership is a contradiction in terms when used in the same sentance with Obama unless you also use an adjective such as failed. Secondly there is more drilling being done, but all on private lands despite Obama's efforts and efforts of his Justice Dept and the EPA to keep these drills from being struck. Thirdly, there is much less oil drilling on public lands and waters than every before since Obama through up EPA road blocks to drilling. Plus the price of gasoline is twice as high now than it was under Bush. That's energy progress?"

Young Lady: "If this is true, then how come I haven't read about this or see this on the news?"

Me: "Well,......try this experiment. Listen to CNN, ABC, CBS, MSNBC and NBC objectively and see how many pro Obama and pro-Romney and how many anti-Obama and anti- Romney articles or news segments there are. I think a rational person will conclude that all these legacy news sources will be decidely slanted towards projecting favorable coverage of Obama and un-favorable coverage of Romney.

Young Lady: "How is the average person supposed to know what is truth or not?"

Me: [What I wanted to say: "If Obama's or a liberal's lips are moving - they are lying"]....what I did say: "It is up to you to become an educated voter. You have an obligation to vote and you have an implied obligation to be educated before you vote."

Young Lady: "Yeah, you're right. I need to be informed on the issues. How do I go about doing that?"

Me: "I look at all different sources. I suspect the sources that use judgemental verbiage as opposed to just reporting on the news. I am also a conservative and identify myself with the tea party so some of the news sources I follow may not be as diverse as you would like. Fox News, hands down, is the most objective. Do not confuse their commentators such as Hannity with objective reporting. While I feel Hannity tells the truth, he is a conservative commentator.

Young Lady: "Well, I just don't want to watch nothing but people tearing Obama down."

Me: "Fair enough,...but can you give me one,....just one thing that Obama has done to make this Country better other than become the first black President and therefore seemingly overcoming the racial ceiling?"

Young Lady: "Passing Obamacare has to his premier accomplishment."

Me: "Bear with me a minute,.....I am going to ask a couple of questions then give you the answer.......When the Obamacare bill was finished and went before Congress was it published on the internet for 48 hours so the public could read and provide comment? and Who actually passed Obamacare"?

Me: "The Obamacare bill was passed by a Committe missing any Republican representation. The Democrats shut the Republicans out of the process. Then sent the bill to Congress for a vote. The republicans asked to read the 2,700+ page bill before they voted. The Democrats would not allow it and demanded an immediate vote. This is where Nancy Pelosi, then Speaker of the House, declared that 'we must pass the bill to find out what is in it'. The Democrats had a majority in both houses,...passed the bill, then sent it to the President for signature. The rest is unconstitutional history."

Young Lady: "Well, I don't know that to be a fact."

Me: "You have to educate yourself,......continue to bear with me a minute,.....Does Obama say that Romney is going to destroy Medicare for Seniors?"

Young Lady: "Yes".

Me: "Romney and Ryan declare they will leave Medicare alone for seniors and those 55 years and older, but need to fix Medicare because it is going broke. Did you know that Obama took out over $700 Billion dollars from Medicare to fund care for welfare recipitants and illegal aliens under Obamacare?"

Young Lady: "No. I haven't heard that."

Me: "Well, I guess you have some work to do".

I said goodbyes and left. This young lady talked to wife afterwards and said "your husband gave me a lot to think about. It seems that the truth is hard to find."

My wife replied " Indeed it is.........if you're a Liberal"

Obama and Chavez - Two Peas in a Pod

From a Reuters article posted on Yahoo news.....

With both presidents facing tight re-election fights, Venezuela's Hugo Chavez gave a (not so surprising) endorsement to Barack Obama - and said the U.S. leader no doubt felt the same. "I hope this doesn't harm Obama, but if I was from the United States, I'd vote for Obama," the socialist Chavez said of a man he first reached out to in 2009 but to whom he has since generally been insulting.

Chavez is running for a new six-year term against opposition challenger Henrique Capriles, while Obama seeks re-election in November against Republican candidate Mitt Romney. Venezuela's election is next weekend. "Obama is a good guy ... I think that if Obama was from Barlovento or some Caracas neighbourhood, he'd vote for Chavez," the president told state TV, referring to a poor coastal town known for the African roots of its population.

Chavez went on to say "After our triumph and the supposed, probable triumph of President Obama, with the extreme right defeated here and there, I hope we could start a new period of normal relations with the United States," he said. "Obama recently said something very rational and fair ... that Venezuela is no threat to the interests of the United States," he added.  

Cowboys comment: Yeah, we know Obama made that asinine comment not considering (or ignoring) Russian and Chinese negotiations to build Naval bases in Venezuela.

Since coming to office, Chavez has projected himself as the head of a global "anti-imperialist" movement inspired by his friend and ideological mentor Fidel Castro of Cuba. Relations with Washington improved briefly after Obama took office in January 2009 and promised more engagement with Latin America. Chavez toned down his tirades against the "Yankee empire" and shook hands with the new U.S. leader at a summit.
