“Tonight, I can report to the American people and to the world that the United States has conducted an operation that killed Usama bin Laden, the leader of Al Qaeda.”
– President Obama
“This momentous achievement marks a victory for America, for people who seek peace around the world, and for all those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001. The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done.”
– President George W. Bush
A heartfelt thanks goes out to our military for securing justice for the victims of the 9/11/01 attacks, the USS Cole bombing, and the US Embassy bombings in Africa.
To all of our fighting men and women in uniform: America salutes you tonight! May God bless you and keep you safe.
It is official: The “Kennedy seat” is once again (and rightfully so) the people’s seat:
Congratulations, Senator! Work hard and serve your constituents well.
Tax cuts are coming…to Sweden.
Since the other networks were busy falling prostrate before Barack Almighty, I watched Fox News Sunday instead. As you can see below, ACORN’s Bertha Lewis really didn’t want to talk about it:
Why watch the same old sales pitch on five different channels when you can watch something new and informative?
James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles strike California gold again with their fifth video investigation of the ACORN offices in National City, CA.
If you’re looking for trendy boutique hotels, an exploding culinary scene, or visiting the local ACORN to get your underage prostitutes smuggled across the Mexican border, you’re in the right place.
And find it they did:
In response to the videos, California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has called for an investigation of ACORN’s activities statewide. Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty has also directed his state government to halt all funding to ACORN.
On the federal level, the U.S. Senate voted 83-7 to cut off funding of the ACORN housing program. Seven senators have a lot of explaining to do.
O’Keefe and Giles are to be commended for doing the hard work that the mainstream media refuses to do.
There’s more video of ACORN corruption caught on tape from San Bernardino:
Meanwhile (with the exception of Fox News Channel), the mainstream media outlets are busy seeing, speaking, and hearing no evil from ACORN.
ACORN is making futile attempts to cover their tracks and threatening to shoot the messengers via lawsuit threats.
There’s now video of an undercover visit to an ACORN office in San Diego being aired on FNC. We ain’t seen nothing yet, folks!
James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles take their exposé westward to my old neighborhood of San Bernardino, CA. Here’s Part I of the shocking undercover footage:
To my California readers (especially those in the Inland Empire): Get on the phone, contact the local papers, and start holding the names named accountable. There’s more to come.
Update: The San Bernardino Sun does a write-up including a response from one of the mentioned politicians. ACORN’s chief organizer for California quickly put a different spin on the video, dismissing Giles and O’Keefe as “actors”.
President Obama’s embattled “green jobs czar” packs it in:
Van Jones, an administration official specializing in environmentally friendly “green jobs” with the White House Council on Environmental Quality was linked to efforts suggesting a government role in the 2001 terror attacks and to derogatory comments about Republicans.
The resignation comes as Obama is working to regain his footing in the contentious health care debate.
Jones issued an apology on Thursday for his past statements. When asked the next day whether Obama still had confidence in him, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said only that Jones “continues to work in the administration.”
The matter surfaced after news reports of a derogatory comment Jones made in the past about Republicans, and separately, of Jones’ name appearing on a petition connected to the events surrounding the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks. That 2004 petition had asked for congressional hearings and other investigations into whether high-level government officers had allowed the attacks to occur.
“On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me,” Jones said in his resignation statement. “They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide.”
Jones wasn’t thrown under the bus, but taken away in a waahmbulance! The truth about his radical, communist, conspiracy theory ties was an open book, pointed out in print and online; but to him, it was a “smear campaign”. He was busted fair and square, thanks to talk radio personality Glenn Beck, who had the courage to stand up and question Jones’ agenda (and ask why in the world would Obama gave him an advisory post in the first place) with boldness.
Jones’ resignation is a victory for liberty; however, there are still 31 “czars” remaining on the government payroll — all with radical backgrounds — who can do irreparable harm to our nation, our lives and our freedoms. It remains wise to heed Beck’s advice, continue to stand up against tyranny, and question those in leadership who ultimately work for us, regardless of race, ideology, or political affiliation.
In short, fellow citizens, continue to watch, fight, and pray.
I knew that the pro-government health care protesters could be quite thuggish, but I never thought they would actually go this far:
A 65-year-old man had his finger bitten off Wednesday evening at a health care rally in Thousand Oaks (CA), according to the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department.
Sheriff’s investigators were called to Hillcrest and Lynn Road at 7:26 p.m.
About 100 protesters sponsored by MoveOn.org were having a rally supporting health care reform. A group of anti-health care reform protesters formed across the street.
A witness from the scene says a man was walking through the anti-reform group to get to the pro-reform side when he got into an altercation with the 65-year-old, who opposes health care reform
If you can’t beat ‘em, chomp ‘em. Was this the new sales pitch for ObamaCare the administration was talking about?
Update: Mary Katharine Ham has the other side (and the rest of) the story…
In an attempt to compare his battle for socialized medicine with the historic civil rights movement, President Obama accused his critics of “bearing false witness” about his true intentions as he gave his sales pitch to religious leaders.
Given that Obama has repeatedly lied about his agenda to force socialized medicine down the throats of the American people time, time, and time again, he is not without sin in such regard, and should refrain from casting stones at his critics.
Secondly, Obama is actually preaching to the choir, given that the “coalition of religious groups” is actually a left-wing network of “faith-based” community organizers whose founders were trained in the teachings of Marxist pharisee Saul Alinsky as opposed to taking up the cause of the converted Christian apostle formerly known as Saul of Tarsus.
In promoting the big lie that is currently repackaged as “health insurance reform”, Obama is a false prophet. The “unwashed”, “uninformed” multitudes are rejecting the message and responding with a resounding “NO!” like fire shut up in Jeremiah’s bones (no relation to the latter-day Jeremiah Wright, whose hate-filled sermons left quite an impression on the president).
The fish and loaves that are being fed to those who hunger for total government control over their lives are quite fishy indeed.
Bill Clinton’s spokesman says the former president has left North Korea with two American journalists who had been held hostage.
Matt McKenna said late Tuesday that Clinton has “safely left North Korea with Laura Ling and Euna Lee.” He said they’re flying to Los Angeles, where the journalists will be reunited with their families.
The White House is not commenting the trip.
Although the Obama White House had to send a former president to do the job the current president was elected to do (as well as the spouse of said former president was confirmed by Congress to take the initiative), I’m thankful that Ling and Lee were freed by their captors and are now homeward bound. Former President Clinton deserves credit where credit is due for putting himself on the line.
Al Gore, the employer of Ling and Lee through his co-ownership of Current TV, should also give thanks that no harm came upon them.
It was meant to be a show case for healthy living, with the first lady, Michelle Obama, personally putting hand to pitch fork in a crowd of school children to dig up the first White House vegetable garden in more than 50 years.
Instead, an embarrassed White House admitted today that the plot – whose lettuce, herbs and other produce have been consumed by the first family, visiting dignitaries, local school children and a women’s homeless shelter – had tested positive for elevated levels of lead.
A spokeswoman for the White House said the soil in the garden had lead concentrations of 93 parts per million of lead. Health experts say it is safe to raise leafy vegetables in soil with concentrations of 10-50 parts per million, and urban gardens typically have raised lead levels. However, it is advised for young children to be tested for exposure to lead if they play in areas where lead concentrations exceed 100 parts per million. The Environmental Protection Agency puts the threshold for dangerous lead levels at 300 parts per million.
But even though lead levels in the first garden are far below that danger zone, the disclosure is awkward for a White House which has made prominent use of the vegetable garden to define Michelle Obama’s role as First Lady,and to encourage sensible eating habits in children.
Meanwhile, Michelle’s hubby is still f’n up, and Michael Jackson isn’t hiding in an underground bunker someplace recording a new album with 2Pac. Pass the snap peas!
