A Big Storm Requires Big Government

NY Times...Disaster coordination is one of the most vital functions of “big government,” which is why Mitt Romney wants to eliminate it. At a Republican primary debate last year, Mr. Romney was asked whether emergency management was a function that should be returned to the states. He not only agreed, he went further. 


“Absolutely,” he said. “Every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that’s the right direction. And if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that’s even better.”...
I say a big vacum in the halls of power requires a big man to fill the void!
“Obama is is a weak little man whose only saving grace is his laziness, while Romney’s greatest strength, his executive competence, only makes him the more dangerous candidate for the country.” Vox Day

Which man would you prefer to hold the power of life and death in his hands – the Choomba King, or the aggressive go-getter? Just a thought.

We are survivors and we can overcome fallen trees, power outages, and yes even loss of life due to unforseen circumstances. Big Government will never save you. It can lick your wounds and throw a portion of your own money back to you. However, you will always pay dearly for their "compassion" and their intervention.

"The natural progress of things is for liberty to yeild,[1] and government to gain ground." - Thomas Jefferson to Edward Carrington, Paris, May 27, 1788[2]

Abbott and Costello and “What’s the Real Unemployment Rate”?

The Godfather

If you haven’t seen Abbott and Costello’s “Who’s On First?” routine, then you are missing a comic classic. I wonder how long it took them to write and rehearse it. “They performed the routine hundreds, maybe thousands of times in vaudeville theaters and on the set of the 1945 film ‘The Naughty Nineties.’” Someone has taken the “Who’s On First?” give-and-take and did a little thing with unemployment figures. I’d love to see this in a video. It could become a classic:

COSTELLO: I want to talk about the unemployment rate in America.

ABBOTT: Good Subject. Terrible Times. It’s 8%

COSTELLO: That many people are out of work?

ABBOTT: No, that’s 16%.

COSTELLO: You just said 8%.

ABBOTT: 8% Unemployed.

COSTELLO: Right 8% out of work.

ABBOTT: No, that’s 16%.

COSTELLO: Okay, so it’s 16% unemployed.

ABBOTT: No, that’s 8%.

COSTELLO: WAIT A MINUTE. Is it 8% or 16%?

ABBOTT: 8% are unemployed. 16% are out of work.

COSTELLO: IF you are out of work you are unemployed.

ABBOTT: No, Obama said you can’t count the “Out of Work” as the unemployed. You have to look for work to be unemployed.


ABBOTT: No, you miss his point.

COSTELLO: What point?

ABBOTT: Someone who doesn’t look for work can’t be counted with those who look for work. It wouldn’t be fair.

COSTELLO: To whom?

ABBOTT: The unemployed.

COSTELLO: But they are ALL unemployed!

ABBOTT: No, the unemployed are actively looking for work. Those who are out of work gave up looking. If you give up, you are no longer in the ranks of the unemployed.

COSTELLO: So if you’re off the unemployment rolls, that would count as less unemployment?
ABBOTT: Unemployment would go down. Of course!

COSTELLO: The unemployment just goes down because you don’t look for work?

ABBOTT: Absolutely it goes down. That’s how it gets to 8%. If you counted them ALL it would be 16%. He doesn’t want anybody reading about 16% unemployment.

COSTELLO: Would that would be tough on his reelection?

ABBOTT: Absolutely.

COSTELLO: Wait a minute. Does that mean there are two ways to bring down the unemployment rate?

ABBOTT: Two ways is correct.

COSTELLO: Unemployment can go down if someone gets a job?

ABBOTT: Correct.

COSTELLO: And unemployment can also go down if you stop looking for a job?

ABBOTT: Bingo.

COSTELLO: So there are two ways to bring unemployment down, and the easier of the two is to have Obama’s supporters stop looking for work.

ABBOTT: Now you’re thinking like the Obama Economy Czar.

COSTELLO: I don’t even know what the hell I just said!

ABBOTT: Now you’re thinking like Obama!

Homeland Security graduates first Corps of Homeland Youth

"If  the Good Lord's willin' and the criks don't rise" we will see a change in Washington when Romney is elected in eleven days.
What will happen after that concerning our Constitutional rights and the huge march of statist bureaucratic power over the American citizen?
Will Mitt Romney continue to feed and grow this monstrous beast called DHS?
There needs to be some constraint put on this deeply entrenched thuggish aberration that Obama and Big Sis Nepolitano have given life to. The Bush era may have spawned it, but it is about time that we neuter this animal before it spreads tyranny throughout the land!
I am a student of history and I keep wondering if this is what the average German saw in the mid 30's as his entire society changed because of the imperial edicts that came from the Reich Chancellors office and the local gauleiter and the party office.

Subject: Does this sound like a German dictator plan of 70 years ago?

Homeland Security graduates first Corps of Homeland Youth

October 7, 2012. Vicksburg . The federal government calls them FEMA Corps. But they conjure up memories of the Hitler Youth of 1930’s Germany . Regardless of their name, the Dept of Homeland Security has just graduated its first class of 231 Homeland Youth. Kids, aged 18-24 and recruited from the President’s AmeriCorp volunteers, they represent the first wave of DHS’s youth corps, designed specifically to create a full time, paid, standing army of FEMA Youth across the country.

On September 13, 2012, the Department of Homeland Security graduated its first class of FEMA Corps first-responders. While the idea of having a volunteer force of tens of thousands of volunteers scattered across the country to aid in times of natural disasters sounds great, the details and timing of this new government army is somewhat curious, if not disturbing.

DHS raising an armed army
The first problem one finds with this ‘new army’ is the fact that they are mere children. Yes, 18 is generally the legal age a person can sign a contract, join the military or be tried as an adult. But ask any parent - an 18, 20 or even a 24 year-old is still a naïve, readily-influenced kid.

The second problem with this announcement and program is its timing. Over the past two years, President Obama has signed a number of Executive Orders suspending all civil and Constitutional rights and turning over management of an America under Martial Law to FEMA. Also in that time, domestic federal agencies under DHS, including FEMA, have ordered billions of rounds of ammunition as well as the corresponding firearms. Admittedly, these new weapons and ammunition aren’t to be used in some far-off war or to fight forest fires in California , but right here on the streets of America .

Strange Armored Fighting Vehicles

Individuals around the US have begun reporting the site of strange, new, heavily-armed FEMA fighting vehicles. What would a disaster relief agency like FEMA need with 2,500 brand new GLS armored fighting vehicles? According to the agency’s own mandate, as well as President Obama’s recent Executive Order, the answer is ‘population control’ during a time of Martial Law.

One set of images made available by shows trailer after trailer carrying these new DHS and FEMA armored fighting vehicles, complete with machine gun slots. They’re labeled with the usual backward American flag and the title, ‘Homeland Security’. Below that and the DHS logo, it also reads, ‘Immigration & Customs Enforcement’. Joining those markings, the black vehicles with white lettering also display ‘POLICE/RESCUE’ on one side and ‘Special Response Team’ on the other.

FEMA Corps
FEMA Deputy Administrator Rich Serino gave the keynote address at the ‘Induction Ceremony’ for the inaugural class of FEMA Corps members. According to the DHS website, ‘Corps members assist with disaster preparedness, response, and recovery activities, providing support in areas ranging from working directly with disaster survivors to supporting disaster recovering centers to sharing valuable disaster preparedness and mitigation information with the public.’

Serino describes what the first FEMA Corps class has accomplished so far, as well as where they’ll be going next:

‘Yesterday, we welcomed 231 energetic members into the first ever FEMA Corps class. The members just finished off their first month of training with our partners at the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) and are one step closer to working in the field on disaster response and recovery. They will now head to FEMA’s Center for Domestic Preparedness to spend the next two weeks training in their FEMA position-specific roles. Once they complete both the CNCS and FEMA training, these 231 dedicated FEMA Corps members will be qualified to work in one of a variety of disaster related roles, ranging from Community Relations to Disaster Recovery Center support.’
A standing army
Unlike most local disaster response teams who are volunteers, training periodically and only showing up when there’s a disaster, the FEMA Corps will be a paid, full time, standing army of government youth. FEMA Deputy Administrator Sarino goes on to explain, ‘The new members, who range in age from 18-24 years old, will contribute to a dedicated, trained, and reliable disaster workforce by working full-time for ten months on federal disaster response and recovery efforts.’

In closing his announcement of the first graduating class of FEMA Corps Youth, Sarino describes his and the agency’s vision of the future, one where ‘FEMA Corps sets the foundation for a new generation of emergency managers’.

DHS arms itself
As we detailed in the August 28 Whiteout Press article ‘History of DHS Ammunition Purchases, federal emergency management agencies are looking more and more like a military army every day.

The federal government’s procurement website actually lists DHS’ requests for bids to supply it with ammunition and military weaponry. All of the orders listed in the above article, including the orders for hundreds of millions of rounds of ammunition, are publicly available at

One look at a chart of DHS ammunition purchases over the past decade reveals a drastic spike in orders of bullets recently, totaling in the billions of rounds. Other charts available online show a similar drastic spike in the purchases of accompanying weaponry by the Department of Homeland Security.

What is the US federal government preparing for? And why does it feel it needs an army of brainwashed youth, millions of guns, thousands of armored fighting vehicles and literally billions of rounds of ammunition, just to provide relief to the American people during a natural disaster? Any historian will tell you it sounds more like the arming of the Hitler Youth than an army of first responders fighting forest fires and hurricanes.

No Voter Fraud Here...Move Along...Move Along

Democrats, including Eric Holder, claim there are no cases of voter fraud.
“The number of allegations in a multitude of locations would seem to suggest something more than the isolated acts of ‘a few bad apples,’ ” the lawmakers wrote Tuesday to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.

“We respectfully request the Justice Department to assume the responsibility and conduct its own investigation, given the mounting evidence that one company may have been engaged in a similar multi-state effort to commit voter registration fraud.”

The Hill

Undercover Investigation reveals Democrat Jim Moran’s Field Director (his Son) advising how to forge utility bills in order to commit vote fraud.

You just had to know that The Chicago Way of election fraud would reach historic levels this cycle. Cook County machine corruption has gone national and promoted by Obama’s own InJustice Department. I fully expect entire cemeteries of dead to be voting this election, along with hordes of illegals and via Democrat operatives engaged in identity theft and fraud. In 2008, after Eric Holder refused to prosecute the New Black Panthers carrying billy clubs for voter intimidation at polling places in 2008, the audacity of this regime knows no bounds. 

Citing fears of Conservatives engaged in ‘vote suppression’ by enforcing new voter-ID laws, the Obama regime has invited the UN to come in and MONITOR the U.S. elections to find evidence of ‘Voter Suppression” by Conservative groups in key cities and areas outside of Democrat bastions of power like Chicago and New York.

Meanwhile, while thugs of the New Black Panther Party suggest they will be back at the polls to ensure there is no “intimidation against our people.”, black civil rights leaders aligned with Obama call for international assistance to stop voter verification that they claim is ‘vote suppression’.

Stoopid Deer--"Don't Read Those Signs"

For those of you who missed this viral radio clip, I just couldn't help myself from posting this example of a true Liberal Moonbat on a rant. All I can say is, "I hope this obvious Obama voter never travels into moose territory".
FOX4kc...FARGO, N.D. — You know those deer signs you see from time to time? After three accidents involving deer, one North Dakota woman wants them moved.

Under the impression the signs are intended to tell deer where it’s safe to cross, she embarked on a (failed) mission to get the signs moved to lower-traffic areas.

She wrote letters, called television stations, but no one seemed to want to hear what she had to say. Finally, she turned to Y94 Playhouse Radio in Fargo. They listened (and laughed) and then posted her call on YouTube.
Here is an oldie but a goodie...

A Red Carpet for Radicals at the White House

A year-long investigation by the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) has found that scores of known radical Islamists made hundreds of visits to the Obama White House, meeting with top administration officials.

Court documents and other records have identified many of these visitors as belonging to groups serving as fronts for the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and other Islamic militant organizations.

The IPT made the discovery combing through millions of White House visitor log entries. IPT compared the visitors' names with lists of known radical Islamists. Among the visitors were officials representing groups which have:
  • Been designated by the Department of Justice as unindicted co-conspirators in terrorist trials; Extolled Islamic terrorist groups including Hamas and Hezbollah;
  • Obstructed terrorist investigations by instructing their followers not to cooperate with law enforcement;
  • Promoted the incendiary conspiratorial allegation that the United States is engaged in a "war against Islam"— a leading tool in recruiting Muslims to carry out acts of terror;
  • Repeatedly claimed that many of the Islamic terrorists convicted since 9-11 were framed by the U.S government as part of an anti-Muslim profiling campaign.

Truth is Essential to Good Humor

Last night I heard one humorist on the radio giving his assessment of the presidential candidates' humor at the Al Smith dinner (He was the only one with enough guts to chide our HUMORLESS Dear Leader). One comment struck me as extremely relevant and to the point.

Real irony, satire, and sarcasm requires an understanding of the truth. Great humorists always incorporate some element of truth in any good presentation.

This is what Obuma lacks. His timing is always off. His delivery is lousy, even when provided with some decent material by his handlers. The fact is that he lies and slanders so maliciously and so often that he has lost touch with reality. Thus he comes off as cold, stale, and frankly unbelievable.

Romney, on the other hand, is what he seems...personable, a real man, who tells it like it is...with a great heart and a quick mind.

Thursday -- October 18, 2012, Breitbart 

As they pretentiously announce at the start of every episode of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show." Influential and irreverent Jewish host, Jon Stewart (neé Liebowitz), had two segments with his special guest President Barack Obama.

Let’s just say that this show turned out to be not optimal for Democrats. Stewart asked good questions. The President gave bad answers. Stewart showed no desire to follow up. Both men seemed rather out of steam.
The air flew out of the room when the host initially showed the President a picture of Michelle Obama glowering at her husband after the debacle which was his Denver debate. It went downhill from there.

Stewart asked the great question of how we could expect anything but stalemate if Obama is reelected along with the Republican House. Obama had no answer, just an uneven segue into his stump speech. Libya talk added yet another layer of incriminating statements for those, like me, who smell a rat.

But it was a few hours later, on the evening of Thursday, October 18, 2012, at the famed Waldorf Astoria that Obama met his Waterloo...Read more by Craig Silverman at Breitbart

His opponent, Mitt Romney, showed the country he is smart and funny. Romney is unafraid. He delivered a superlative stand-up comedy routine to a crowd that included prominent Catholics, the opposition mainstream media, and President Obama.

Every joke worked at every level, much to the detriment of Obama. I thought the Secret Service might step in as the President got harpooned. But it was so gentle, artful and funny. This is the beauty of America where we have free speech.

For the first time in a while, I felt sorry for the President having to follow that act. I give him props for not running to the bathroom to throw up. The President got off some good lines of his own but he had flop sweat and he seemed distracted. Once again, he was caught in a situation that was not optimal. And he has another debate a few days away. What can he say about Libya then?

If Barry's strength doesn't lie in his comedic talent, then where does his real power lie...

The Commander in Cheese

This is a very fitting appointment indeed!

Win or lose in November, President Barack Obama will have the satisfaction of having been elected the “Commander in Cheese” by Cheetos fans, a popular American snack food.

Cheetos manufacturer Frito-Lay said Obama won the “entirely unscientific cheesy election poll [by] a narrow margin.”

Voters on the Cheetos Facebook page choose between two giant portraits of Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney. The portraits were made entirely of more than 2,000 individual Cheetos cheese snacks.

“Obama's 3 feet by 4 feet one-of-a-kind Cheetos portrait claimed 57 percent of the nationwide vote vs. former Gov. Mitt Romney's 3 feet by 4 Cheetos portrait,” a company press release said.
It added that the results of the poll “confirm what political pundits and other leading polls have indicated for weeks – any way you slice the cheese, this race could be one of the closest in history.

Frito-Lay said its artist worked for more than 100 hours to sort and glue each Cheeto into the portraits...

Coal miners ask Obama to stop ‘absolute lies’

Herald Star...
BEALLSVILLE - Coal miners at the American Energy Corp. Century Mine said they want President Barack Obama to stop what they term the war on coal - and to stop spreading mistruths about them.

Miners gathered Friday afternoon to express their opposition to Obamas energy and environmental policies, which they believe threaten their jobs. Miner Mitch Miracle read aloud a letter the miners mailed to Obama that outlines some of their concerns.

The miners said Obamas campaign team is running ads filled with blatantly false statements about the miners regarding their participation in Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romneys August campaign stop at the Century Mine. These ads assert that the miners were forced to attend the event by the mines owner, Robert Murray.

There are numerous false statements and absolute lies concerning our participation in this event, mostly started by a local shock jock radio host, the miners letter to Obama states. Why would you (Obama) lie about the 500 working miners who have signed this letter? We, the employees of the Century Mine would request you immediately stop these false ads.

This summer, Murray Energy Corp., parent company of the Beallsville mine, cut or relocated 56 workers with the closure of the Red Bird West mine near Brilliant. Murray also cut 29 mining jobs from The Ohio Valley Coal Co.s Powhatan No. 6 Mine. All of this was done, Robert Murray said, because of Obamas war on coal.

Murray then hosted the August Romney campaign stop in Beallsville, during which many miners appeared behind Romney as the former Massachusetts governor spoke about the need to protect coal mining jobs. In response to the assertion some have made about the miners being forced to appear with Romney, the miners made the following points on Friday:

As for anyone who claims the miners were forced to attend, those on-site Friday said these assertions probably came from discharged or disgruntled former employees.

Despite the miners Friday statements, Ohio Democrats have requested a federal investigation regarding Murrays campaign contributions and practices.

Romney Wins Three Way Debate

Not only did President Obama come into the second presidential debate more aggressive and prepared, but he brought a secret weapon -- the moderator, Candy Crowley. At two pivotal moments, Ms. Crowley, typically a relatively fair reporter, showed her bias and changed the course of the debate.

First, she backed up Mr. Obama's assertion that he had called the attacks at Benghazi a "terrorist attack" in a Rose Garden event on the day after the tragedy. (After the debate, she reversed her assessment and stated that she was in error.) Second, she consistently let Obama stay two minutes ahead of Mr. Romney in terms of time, and at the end of the debate, Obama had a full three-minute advantage. In addition, at the end of the debate, Crowley gave Obama the last two minutes for a peroration where he gave new arguments (including the "47 percent") without fear of rebuttal.

                                   Obama Drives Voters Away



                     Focus Groups Give Romney The Nod

Closing body language: Romney humble, great gestures - hand to heart, hand to audience. Voice soft. Describing who he is in response to final question from audience. NOT an Obama plant question. Maybe a Romney plant?

Closing body language: Obama says he doesn't believe that government creates jobs (same thing - everybody fair shot, everybody fair share, we play by the same rules). Fist and pointer body language, so if you like fist and pointing finger, go for that.

Focus group responses: Positive comments re: Romney - very specific. At least 6 voters switching from Obama in focus group. They don't like Obama in debate!

"I think rather than defend his own record, he just attacked attacked attacked. That is no way to win the Presidency."

Another lady was undecided between Romney and NOT voting at all - and was "extremely favorably impressed and heard what I wanted to hear."

"He's lied about everything, and he hasn't come through on anything." Used the "BS" word.

Lady is supporting Obama because of women's rights. Women are a huge part of this country. We can't have a slick guy coming into office. Majority of audience disagrees with her, including females.

37% in CBS Instant Poll say Obama won, 30% Romney, 30% tie. Focus group in Nevada of Obama voters, undecided, say they are voting for Romney, describe Romney in strong positive terms.

The Devil Went Down To DC

The Devil Went Down to the White House


The devil went down to the White House, he was looking for a nation to steal.
He was in a bind ‘cos he was way behind, ‘cos he was losing voter appeal.
When he came across this stately Republican, helping the economy and creating work.
And devil jumped to the nearest podium and asked ‘Boy, are you some kind of jerk?

I guess you didn’t know it, but I’m a job creator too.

And if you care to take a dare I’ll make a bet with you
Now you have a pretty record, but give the devil his due:
I bet the White House against your plan ‘cos I think I’m better than you.
The Republican said, My name’s Mitt and it might be a sin,
But I’ll take your bet, you’re gonna regret, ‘cos I’m the best that’s ever been.

Mitt you roll up your sleeves and lay out your plan
Cos hells broke loose in Washington and the devil is the man
And if you win you get that mansion big and white
But if you lose, the devil stays another night.
The devil opened up his case and he said I’ll start this show.
And fire flew from his fingertips as rolled out his manifesto
And he pulled the manifesto open and it made an evil hiss.
Then a band of Bidens joined in and it sounded something like this.
When the devil finished, Mitt said, Well you’re pretty bad Barack
But sit down in that chair right there and let me show you how to rock

Socialists on the mountain, run boys run,
The devil’s in the White House and there is no fun
Comrades grabbin’ bread pans and kickin’ down your door
Michelle does your hubby care, he’s makin’ us all poor.

       The devil bowed his head because he knew that he’d been beat.
       He laid the White House keys on the ground at Mitt’s feet.
       Mitt said, Devil don’t come back, you’re kind we don’t need.
       Cause I told you once you son a gun, America I’ll feed.
      And he played God Bless America, land of the free

The devil’s out of the White House and he had to flee
Granny’s got her bread pan back, and we’re fixin’ up your door.
Michelle we know your hubby’s gone ’cos he’s welcome here no more.

Are We Ready To Rumble?

Will the most divisive campaign in modern American history culminate in massive riots in our major cities? 

Right now, supporters of Barack Obama and supporters of Mitt Romney are both pinning all of their hopes on a victory on November 6th. The race for the presidency is extremely tight, and obviously the side that loses is going to be extremely disappointed when the election results are finalized. But could this actually lead to violence? 

Could we actually see rioting in communities all over America? Well, the conditions are certainly ripe for it. A whole host of surveys over the past few years have shown that Americans are very angry and very frustrated right now. 

In fact, a Pew Research Center poll from late last year found that 86 percent of all Americans are either angry or frustrated with the federal government. We have seen this frustration manifest in protest movements such as the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street, but right now things are fairly calm as liberals and conservatives both look forward to November 6th. 

Many Republicans started the countdown to the next election literally the day after John McCain lost back in 2008. All of their hopes of getting Obama out of the White House are riding on a Romney victory. For many Democrats, Barack Obama is a “once in a generation” icon. 

Just the thought of Mitt Romney replacing Obama in the White House is enough to push many of them to the brink of insanity. In recent years we have seen horrible rioting erupt in cities after major sports championship games. How much worse could the rioting potentially be if this bitterly contested election is decided by a very narrow margin – especially if there are allegations that the election is “stolen”?

The election is nearly four weeks away, and many Obama supporters are already threatening to riot if Obama loses. The following are some very disturbing messages that were posted on Twitter recently that have been reposted on….

State Dept: We’re Too ‘Dumb’ To Understand Obama’s Libya Explanation

In a disastrous question-answer session at the State Department yesterday, State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland first tried to claim that the murder of our ambassador to Libya may have been touched off by a demonstration about the YouTube video after all.

Then she claimed that even though the State Department had no reports of any demonstration, the intelligence community may have told them that a demonstration happened.

Then when Nuland was questioned on that astonishing assessment, she literally said she was “dumb.”

MS. NULAND: Look, I’m generally dumber than most of the rest of the government. I mean, that’s what I’m paid to be. (Laughter.)

End of discussion.
