Choose Your Steed Carefully

Perhaps I am reading more into this than is justified, but I have always put great stock in what the Left says and how they employ Saul Alinski tactics when things get a little to hot for them in an adversarial campaign. All the Demoncats are doing is waiting in line, looking for the slightest weakness in any of the surviving candidates, and picking them off one by one as they pop up with some sensitive social issue or another. Any moral or ethical indiscretion will do just as well.
Alinski always said that to be successful in "community organizing" one must be patient and wait for the enemy to make the first move. Never outline your own plans, simply attack and degrade what the other guy proposes, while you attack his character without mercy.

The feeding frenzy is about to begin in earnest as Rick Santorum is marginalized by the MSM and the Republican elite. He will fall quickly by the wayside following the FL primary and the next vulnerable target will be Newt Gingrich.

As has happened so often in the past, we are permitting ourselves (Conservatives and moderates alike) to be led around by the nose as we search desperately for the strongest opponent for Obama. As this smear fest plays itself out, I will remain uncommitted. I have made my choices in the past, and have been rebuffed by the powerful elite at every turn.

All I can say to you now is to make your choice of steed, and stick with him or her. There may come a time yet when your support will be validated. 2012 may not be the year, and the Presidential race may not be the most important one to focus on right now. We must maintain a House majority and work hard for one in the Senate as well. The most fashionable and presentable presidential candidate in the saddle will not win our country back. Our choices are being limited and our focus is being distracted from the more valuable prize here. The retention of our freedoms and the dissolution of the 60's Marxist coalition must be accomplished at any cost in the coming years.

DUH...I Know Nutting...

Attorney General Eric Holder’s Department of Justice dumped documents related to Operation Fast and Furious on congressional officials late Friday night. Central to this document dump is a series of emails showing Holder was informed of slain Border Patrol agent Brian Terry’s murder on the day it happened – December 15, 2010.

An email from one official, whose name has been redacted from the document, to now-former Arizona U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke reads: “On December 14, 2010, a BORTAC agent working in the Nogales, AZ AOR was shot. The agent was conducting Border Patrol operations 18 miles north of the international boundary when he encountered [redacted word] unidentified subjects. Shots were exchanged resulting in the agent being shot. At this time, the agent is being transported to an area where he can be air lifted to an emergency medical center.”

That email was sent at 2:31 a.m. on the day Terry was shot. One hour later, a follow-up email read: “Our agent has passed away.”

Burke forwarded those two emails to Holder’s then-deputy chief of staff Monty Wilkinson later that morning, adding that the incident was “not good” because it happened “18 miles w/in” the border.

Wilkinson responded to Burke shortly thereafter and said the incident was “tragic.” “I’ve alerted the AG [Holder], the Acting DAG, Lisa, etc.”

Then, later that day, Burke followed up with Wilkinson after Burke discovered from officials whose names are redacted that the guns used to kill Terry were from Fast and Furious. “The guns found in the desert near the murder BP officer connect back to the investigation we were going to talk about – they were AK-47s purchased at a Phoenix gun store,” Burke wrote to Wilkinson.

“I’ll call tomorrow,” Wilkinson responded.

Dumb Bunny...Or Not

One morning a blind bunny was hopping down the bunny trail and tripped over a large snake and fell, kerplop right on his twitchy little nose.

'Oh please excuse me,' said the bunny. 'I didn't mean to trip over you, but I'm blind and can't see.'

'That's perfectly all right,' replied the snake. 'To be sure, it was my fault. I didn't mean to trip you, but I'm blind too, and I didn't see you coming. By the way, what kind of animal are you?'

'Well, I really don't know,' said the bunny.. 'I'm blind, and I've never seen myself. Maybe you could examine me and find out.'

So the snake felt the bunny all over, and he said, 'Well, you're soft, and cuddly, and you have long silky ears, and a little fluffy tail and a dear twitchy little nose. You must be a bunny rabbit!'

The bunny said, 'I can't thank you enough. But by the way, what kind of animal are you?'

The snake replied that he didn't know either, and the bunny agreed to examine him, and when the bunny was finished, the snake asked, 'Well, what kind of an animal am I?'

The bunny had felt the snake all over, and he replied,

'You're cold, you're slimy, and you have no balls...You must be a POLITICIAN'

Sit Down and Shut Up---Or Else

Twitter's New Censorship System and International Internet Law

This little change that Twitter has made to the way that it censors tweets tells us something really quite important about the way that international and national law affects what we do here on the internet.

Twitter has refined its technology so it can censor messages on a country-by-country basis.

The additional flexibility announced on Thursday is likely to raise fears that Twitter’s commitment to free speech may be weakening as the short-messaging company expands into new countries in an attempt to broaden its audience and make more money.

But Twitter sees the censorship tool as a way to ensure individual messages, or tweets, remain available to as many people as possible while it navigates a gauntlet of different laws around the world.

Before, when Twitter erased a tweet it disappeared throughout the world. Now, a tweet containing content breaking a law in one country can be taken down there and still be seen elsewhere.

This is an important point and one that I’ve been banging on about for years. Sadly, all too few seem to understand it even so. The law that guides what we write or say upon the internet is not the law of the jurisdiction in which we write or say it. It is also not the law of whatever jurisdiction hosts the material.

No, we are covered by the law of whatever jurisdiction the material is read in. We’re all liable to the laws of all the countries in which tweets can be (or are) read.

Yes, all 190 odd members of the United Nations, all 250 odd legal jurisdictions around the world. If France has a law against insulting bureaucrats (it does) and you insult a French bureaucrat on the web then you have, at least arguably, just committed a crime in France.

It really is the World Wide Web and we’re subject to the world’s laws on it, not just our own local ones.

Just to give you a direct example. I’m in Germany at the moment writing this. It will be published in the US, by Forbes. I am English and I normally live in Portugal. But the law which governs whether this post is libellous, slanderous etc is not German, English, Portuguese or American. It is the law wherever you are as you read it.

Which is a pretty scary thought really...Read More at Forbes

See the interactive map of internet censorship...By The Guardian

Here’s a new bumper-sticker, prepared by one of the many thousands of activists demanding that Australia’s Government STOPS trying to introduce mandatory Internet censorship.

Internet censorship bills postponed

Congressional leaders announced Friday they would postpone the two bills aiming to prevent online piracy, after several top Internet websites protested.

The senate bill, Protect IP Act (PIPA) and the house bill, Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) were created to stop illegal downloads of copyrighted material, such as movies and music. The bills are supported by Hollywood studios and music recording companies who are losing money because of illegal downloads...Read More at North Wind

Birtherism Revisited

I have previously investigated these issues, and found the conclusions drawn here to be based in fact. I am reposting this version for your perusal / data filing and for posterity's sake. 

Most interesting, and with verification links provided.
I'd say it deserves to be put into the light for questioning!

New twist on Birth Certificate issue

It was brought to light that back in 1961 people of color were called ‘Colored’ or 'Negroes.'
So how can this 'birth certificate' state he is 'African-American' when the term wasn't even used back then?? This isn't over! This is interesting!

Here is a comment from a reader to George Ure at
Urban Survival.com :

"As you all know, Donald Trump made a big deal about Obama's birth certificate.

I will tell you right now that I had never given this "birther" issue any credit. I watched the hype and the crazies come out. I completely dismissed the entire
ordeal altogether.

In fact, it was not until the White House released the birth certificate that it had gained my attention. I am the studious sort of guy, and I have plenty of time on my hands. So, I took a close look at this document.

While I would have thought that this issue would have been closed for good (and, got the crazies to crawl back into their holes), I found three extremely strange inconsistencies that merit some attention.

Firstof all, the birth certificate that the White House released lists Obama's birth as August 4, 1961. It also lists Barack Hussein Obama as his father. No big deal, right? At the time of Obama's birth, it also shows that his father is aged 25 years old, and that Obama's father was born in " Kenya , East Africa ".

This wouldn't seem like anything of concern, except the fact that Kenya did not even exist until 1963, two whole years after Obama's birth, and 27 years after his father's birth. How could Obama's father have been born in a country that did not yet exist?

Up and until Kenya was formed in 1963, it was known as the " British East Africa Protectorate". But, this is not the only thing that I found that just does not jive.

The second item that I looked into was the hospital that Obama was born in. On the birth certificate released by the White House, the listed place of birth is
"Kapi'olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital ".
This cannot be, because the hospital(s) in question in 1961 were called "Kaui Keolani Children's Hospital" and "Kapi'olani Maternity Home", respectively.

The name did not change to Kapi'olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital until 1978, when these two hospitals merged. How can this particular name of the
hospital be on a birth certificate dated 1961 if this name had not yet been applied to it until 1978?

Go ahead, look it up. I am not talking crazy talk....these are the facts. Like I said, I thought that this was a non-issue until the actual certificate was released. Now that it has been released, of course I had to look into it. I have found these issues, now I know that something is up. If you doubt me, just look at the following resources:

Sure as heck, the hospital part is true, as you can read about the 1978 merger here.
Post-colonial history (from Wikipedia)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Kenya

The first direct elections for Africans to the Legislative Council took place in 1957.
Despite British hopes of handing power to "moderate" African rivals, it was the Kenya African National Union (KANU) of Jomo Kenyatta that formed a government shortly before Kenya became independent on 12 December 1963, on the same day forming the first Constitution of Kenya.

The third item is when did the term African American first start? It was in the ’80’s. Prior to that the term was Black. In the early ‘60’s the term was Colored and prior to that, Negro. Thus his birth certificate should say, Black, Colored or Negro depending on what part of the country one was born in and which term was used but for sure, the term African American wasn’t used when Obama was born.

Fascism vs Communism---Feminist Style

As tens of thousands of Americans stage a “March for Life” against abortion in Washington, D.C., new Fox News Channel paid contributor Sally Kohn will be singing the praises of the abortion industry. Kohn, a lesbian feminist, is an alumnus of the Women’s Media Center, which celebrates the 39th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court decision that struck down all laws against abortion.

Trevor Loudon...Kohn, the latest addition to the “Fox News Family,” has argued that the Republican Party is trying to “kill women” by cutting funding for Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the U.S. The Women’s Media Center was founded in 2005 as a “progressive women’s media organization” by writers/activists Jane “Hanoi Jane” Fonda, Robin Morgan and Gloria Steinem.

The goal of the Women’s Media Center in “making women visible and powerful in the media” has achieved a noticeable objective in the hiring of Sally Kohn by the Fox News Channel. But it’s not the only feminist breakthrough with Fox. Jehmu Greene, who became a Fox News contributor in 2010, is a former president of the Women’s Media Center. She is also a Democratic Party operative who was the national director of Project Vote, a group with close ties to the corrupt ACORN organization.

ACORN whistleblower Anita Moncrief, a former Project Vote/ACORN employee, says Project Vote acquired funds to run voter registration drives through ACORN. But the ACORN connection has been curiously omitted in Jehmu Greene’s bios, and she gets extremely upset when it is mentioned, Moncrief told Accuracy in Media...Read More

Power To The States

V IND...PHOENIX -- Not willing to rely on a congressional probe, House Speaker Andy Tobin created a special panel Monday to investigate the botched Fast and Furious program that let straw buyers purchase weapons in Arizona for Mexican gangs.

"This happened here in our state,' Tobin said.

"This happened to people who lived here and worked here,' he continued. "And now a Border Patrol agent who worked here was killed here.'...Read More

Real Job Creation vs. "Dream Job" Creation

Rick Santorum was quoted last week saying that government is the petri dish where the atmosphere for job creation is nurtured. I say that in the case of the Obama regime, it is poisoned.

On Distinguishing Job Creation Plan:

"I was just visiting Fremont County where they just lost hundreds of jobs from a ConAgra plant. Instances like that are why Governor Branstad and Lt. Governor Reynolds held a manufacturing forum in Pella, because the heartland of America is suffering. During my lifetime we've gone from 21% of people employed in manufacturing down to 9% today. Small town America is hurting. We need a plan to revitalize manufacturing, which is why I have called for the elimination of the corporate tax on manufacturers, repealing the bevy of regulations of the Obama Administration, and lower energy costs... I will not give you a jobs number, because government doesn't create jobs. I don't believe you can have a top down mentality. You create the petri dish and I don't need a government bean counter to tell me how many jobs we're going to create."


These are the REAL labor force statistics from the US population survey database available for download HERE

Courtesy of Mark Levin...Hear Mark's full take on these latest unemployment figures HERE.

BTW, my new job is a real killer! I have created a position for myself. This IS job creation writ large. I have expanded my duties, and subsequently , my pay scale. YOU and I do this for ourselves in the real world. No one is out there feeling "compassionate" and giving away jobs. The only handouts available always come with a price.


Thousands of Americans are about to lose the part time, temporary Christmas jobs they picked up just to make ends meet. Our unemployment rosters are bursting at the seams. Out on the endless campaign trail, Barack Obama keeps making a big noise about his "jobs" plan, a pig-in-a-poke proposal full of crony pay back yet few if any actual jobs. But Obama REFUSES to do the one thing that could instantly revive the economies of multiple states and make the cost of gas, plastics and petroleum-based products cheaper for all Americans.

All Barack Obama needs to do is APPROVE THE KEYSTONE OIL PROJECT.
dapac_keystonelazyobamaAMERICA IS WAITING
AND YES, EVEN THE CHINESE ARE WAITING – Because if Obama does not stop pandering to extreme environmentalists and act in the national interest soon, the Canadian government has announced that they will abandon the pipeline project and sell their oil to the Chinese instead of to America!

The Keystone Pipeline project offers America
  • 85,000 jobs
  • $71 billion in wages
  • Cheaper gas and
  • Reduces our dependence on terror oil
But Barack Obama wants to give that oil and its benefits to the Chinese.

Interim President Joe Biden???

We are still SOOO screwed!


In a move certain to fuel the debate over Obama's qualifications for the presidency, the group "Americans for Freedom of Information" has Released copies of President Obama's college transcripts from Occidental College ... Released today, the transcript school indicates that Obama, under the name Barry Soetoro, received financial aid as a foreign student from Indonesia as an undergraduate. The transcript was released by Occidental College in compliance with a court order in a suit brought by the group in the Superior Court of California. The transcript shows that Obama (Soetoro) applied for financial aid and was awarded a fellowship for foreign students from the Fulbright Foundation Scholarship program. To qualify, for the scholarship, a student must claim foreign citizenship.

This document would seem to provide the smoking gun that many of Obama's detractors have been seeking. Along with the evidence that he was first born in Kenya and there is no record of him ever applying for US citizenship, this is looking pretty grim. The news has created a firestorm at the White House as the release casts increasing doubt about Obama's legitimacy and qualification to serve as President article titled, "Obama Eligibility Questioned," leading some to speculate that the story may overshadow economic issues on Obama's first official visit to the U.K. In a related matter, under growing pressure from several groups,

Justice Antonin Scalia announced that the Supreme Court agreed on Tuesday to hear arguments concerning Obama's legal eligibility to serve as President in a case brought by Leo Donofrio of New Jersey . This lawsuit claims Obama's dual citizenship disqualified him from serving as president.. Donofrio's case is just one of 18 suits brought by citizens demanding proof of Obama's citizenship or qualification to serve as president...More at Politics Today
