.. America the Beautiful … may it stay that way.
Can’t you almost hear those words out of Obama’s mouth?
‘If I had known …. certainly none of these awful things would have happened!’
You almost expect him to say that.
He saw nothing… heard nothing … knew nothing … about ANYTHING!
Oh… pardon me. He did get bin Laden.
Now of course he is going to make all these awful things right.
How ignorant he holds us all to be.
The sad reality is if he gets away with all this corruption …. he is right.
This country will have then become far too ignorant to deserve the great freedoms we have.
Oh those inefficient mind of their own underlings he and Obama have!
If it was not so real … it would be a hysterical comedy.
So says Attorney General Holder.
This of course is the joke of all jokes on us all … on we the people… the fox cleaning the henhouse.
It has to make you laugh hysterically.
Where is Obama in all of this?’
He of course “knows nothing”.
What a leader. What an administration. What a mess this country is in.
Where is Congress? Where is sanity? Where is a voice of reason?
Funny how the left characterizes everything as “politics”. Honesty and integrity has nothing at all to do with anything. It is all in how masterfully the game is played …. according to them … and the conservatives play dirty… for they play with the truth.
Here he is … caught in the middle of a barrage of scandals that he would like to just hide his head away from and deny even knowing about … but … realistically there is no way he can get away with that.
Ifhe really did not know anything about anything … then he is the most incompetent president this country has ever had.
If he knew about it all … and is lying saying he didn’t … he is the most deceptive president this country has ever had.
We all know the second has to be the real scenario for there is no way someone can sit in the Oval Office and not be apprised by his minions of everything that is going on beyond those walls … especially someone of Obama’s nature which is to control all things.
Benghazi… of course he knew nothing about the talking points!
Now of course it remains to be seen if he will pay the consequences of anything … after all he is the boss … and the buck stops there.. right?
According to him it stops somewhere way below him.
I guess he can’t be bothered with the daily humdrum of the life of this great country of ours.
At least that is what he is trying to tell us as he denies knowing anything of these scandals facing him.
After all … he needs all of his time for his campaigning and fund raising … and his golf … and vacations.
By the way… what is he campaigning for and why the fund raising?
Makes one wonder what his intentions for the future are.
He can’t run for President again.
Or can he?
Not in his eyes.
Anyhow .. the problems in Washington right now… it is all their fault … Congress and Rush Limbaugh.
“What’s blocking us right now is a sort of hyper-partisanship in Washington that I was, frankly, hoping to overcome in 2008,” Obama said today, according to the pool report. “My thinking was when we beat them in 2012 that might break the fever, and it’s not quite broken yet. But I am persistent. And I am staying at it. And I genuinely believe there are Republicans out there who would like to work with us but they’re fearful of their base and they’re concerned about what Rush Limbaugh might say about them…
“As a consequence we get the kind of gridlock that makes people cynical about government,” he told donors. “My intentions over the next 3 ½ years are to govern. … If there are folks who are more interested in winning elections than they are thinking about the next generation then I want to make sure there are consequences to that.
Scandals? What scandals????
Just ignore them and they don’t exist.
Just look at this headline …. New York Times … “IRS focus on Conservatives gives GOP as issue to seize on.”
Not with that kind of help.
Then again … perhaps the above article shows the NY Times trying to make a turn toward the truth in a way that causes them to lose as least face as possible.
Could that possibly be?
Hope springs eternal.
She is an entrepreneur.. owning a child daycare facility.
That was the beginning of a battle that was taken up by the Mackinac Center for Public Policy in Michigan … a battle for freedom against the union which had …hand in hand with then Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm (D) … illegally formed an umbrella corporation into which they pulled every group and family daycare owner in the state.
The UAW then confiscated “dues” from the checks the state sent to them to cover daycare help for qualifying low income parents of children in their care.
After a diligent two year battle by the Mackinac Center … through the hard work of Attorney Patrick Wright … in which they took the fight all the way to the Supreme Court of Michigan… the battle was won and present Governor Rick Snyder ended the Union money grab in 2012.
She along with two other daycare owners spoke her cause when she could .. when asked. A very private person … she was willing to stand up for the freedom she knew was taken from her.
During this time … she was warned that she most likely would be audited … after all this involved money being kept from the liberals pockets. They were taking in millions per year and now that was stopped. She was up against power in high places.
She made sure her tax papers were always in order.
Time went on.
June 2012 brought a phone call from the local IRS office. She was being audited for the year 2010.
This was no surprise to her.
However … though she was told the final report would be ready in about three weeks after the audit at her place of business in June of 2012 … it was not until the week before Christmas of 2012 that a knock came on the door and there was her IRS auditing agent with the much delayed report in hand.
There had been no warning ahead of time that the agent would be visiting any time soon … much less that day at that time.
It was the busiest time of her business day and she had no time to sit down to read the report and passed this on to the agent…. asking if she could leave the report so she could read it.
The agentt told her … “I have orders from my boss that I am not to leave here without either a signature on this report or a date set up for a full audit for the year 2011.”
Flustered and busy … she signed the report.
She then found out later when reading it that the IRS claimed she owed them thousands upon thousands of dollars.
She called the agent .. spoke to the agent’s boss … and was told to call for an audit reconsideration.
In the meantime the IRS sent her letter after intimidating letter … threatening “garnishment”… home lien …. presumably the usual things they do. Upon calling the IRS to let them know where she stands she was told she owes twice as much as the report she signed said she owed.
How did this happen?
Well…. she was told.. she was audited for 2010 and 2011 … and the added thousands was from the year 2011.
So… what was the reason for the threat that was made at the door … sign or else? Was it just for the purpose of forcing her to sign the audit report? The audit for the year 2011 was apparently already a fact at that time. It was not included in the report.
Could the decision to audit her business have had anything to do with her participation in the fight against the Union making the state daycare owners members?
The union lost an annual intake of about $4 million with the halt to the daycare union.
You tell me.
Her business makes less than $100,000/ year.
The revelation in the news headlines that the IRS has been targeting conservative groups did not at all surprise her. The Mackinac Center for Public Policy is a non-profit tax exempt group very much in touch with the threat to our economic freedoms and works full time to protect them and preserve that which is best for we the people.
Of coure she wasn’t surprised.
After all … to take a quote from Hot Air..
“…..Joe Klein would like you to know that the IRS’s behavior may be wrong but not nearly as wrong as Republicans’ attempts to obstruct business in Washington by … investigating the wrongdoing. Evidently that’s the “real scandal” here. Actual quotation: “What is more dangerous to our democracy, the Obama Administration’s massaging of its mistakes or the Republicans’ constant campaign to paralyze our government through diversions like these?”…”
Those “diversions like these” of course are the investigation of those wrongdoings …. which can never be classified as “mistakes”.
They are deliberate and meaningful moves and have one goal in mind …. total control.
Just dare to stand in their way.
Is it my imagination … or has the media at times seemed to want Kate to be the new Diana?
I am sure Queen Elizabeth and those surrounding her do not share that desire … however strong or wishful it may be on the media’s part.
However … instead of looking for a new Diana in Kate …the media need only to look at Prince Harry.
There is the real spirit of Diana.
There is Diana … her spirit … her life … her compassion … her caring… the unpretentiousness.
It is all so openly and genuinely shown in Harry where ever he is seen .. whomever he is with … what ever he is doing.
People of all ages are just naturally drawn to him … just as they were to his mother. They laugh with him at his playfulness, his compassion is felt by them, his spirit draws them to him.
That was Diana.
It is called being real … being true.
Some seem to feel those qualities are a detriment and must be hidden and it is probably a good guess that Harry has been lectured to that effect more than once … most likely much much more than once… but … they are the qualities that make up the man .. just as in the case of his mother.
They were the qualities that made up Diana.
Endearing. Real. Sincere.
How the world has missed that presence in a public figure.
How refreshing to have it returned.
Live on … Prince Harry.
We all love you … just for who you are …not for what you are.
It is the same way we loved your mom.
The world needs a huge touch of realness it can see and you are it … without even trying.
Live on … and thank you for your sacrifice.
Here is an example of that which I speak …. Prince Harry at the Warrior Games.
Our country is being lost from right within and the heaviest of the blame goes in one direction .. to the mainstream media.
What they should be saying as opposed to what they are saying is in direct opposition to one the other.
They know … as so many of us do … that a great part of the population of Americans rely completely on that media to keep up to date on what is happening around us and around the world.
That media is now focused on propaganda … on covering Obama at any cost .. even at the cost of American lives.
What they choose to do with the now ongoing Benghazi attack hearings can sadly be easily predicted … even before we see it actually happening.
It is taken as every other event that has a negative finger pointing at Obama and twisted and turned till none of the truth is left … and the blame for everything horrible happening in and to we the people is because of one facet of we the people and one facet alone .. the conservative right wing nuts who have no compassion for any one or anything.
The worm has turned.
The only question left is will it turn upright again?
Is it even able to?
What should the media be saying?
That is what they should be saying.
Plain and simple.
How sad that even as the terrible truth unfolds the media tries to make it look like nothing more than a savage attack on the part of the Republicans to hurt Hillary Clinton who the media seems to foresee as running for the presidency in 2016.
Cover cover cover … even at the cost of American lives.
What they do …. the media .. is unforgivable.
Was it really due to an affair … of all things?
Of course not.
Who ever doubted that the real reason he was forced to leave his post was because he was not willing to play Obama’s game concerning the Benghazi attack?
Is there any one who still doubts that truth?
Read here. … as the Benghazi scandal grows as the truth emerges more and more clearly. Your doubts will disappear once and for all.
General Petraeus … thank you for all the good you did for this country.
The threats must have been dire and must have concerned more than you yourself for you to have resigned.
Dont’ we all know that?
In the meantime … we are once more sabotaged by those who would want us to think they believe as we do .. in our freedom… namely Lindsey Graham and Jeff Flake .. two “conservative” Gang of Eight members who could have demanded some sense concerning the immigration reform bill but didn’t.
The amendment by Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, would have required control of the U.S.-Mexico border for six months before anyone could seek legal status. Grassley said the measure was designed to ensure that the border really is secured. But a lead supporter of the legislation, Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York, said the real impact would be to “delay, probably forever, any legalization” for immigrants now living in the country without authorization, who would eventually be eligible for citizenship under the bill.
The Judiciary Committee vote to defeat the amendment was 12 to 6, with Republican Sens. Jeff Flake of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina voting with Democrats…
The vote on the Grassley amendment was likely the first of several in which the Republican authors sided with Democrats on the committee to vote down amendments from their own side. Schumer and Durbin also are expected to lend their votes to Republicans to defeat Democratic amendments that could improve the bill for immigrant families but make it less palatable for Republicans to support.
Also…. by bringing us “back to the future” by restricting gas use is as important as freeing the slaves was at the time of Lincoln… according to some ridiculous imaginations of some very very far off base fellow citizens of ours.
And now… imagine what would be happening if a Republican president did to the Benghazi attack as Obama has done to it?
That is not hard to imagine in any way.
We all know what the results would be and that would be a far cry from how the media is treating Obama’s great cover up... after all…. death is a part of life… right?
What horrible madness when American lives are put at the bottom of the garbage pile to be used as pawns as Obama chooses.
He …. Obama …. went to Las Vegas to take part in a fundraiser during the Benghazi attack.
Why is he not impeached for just that fact alone .. never mind all the actions that may have been directly responsible for the deaths of those American lives taken in Benghazi on that horrible night in September of 2012 when this administration failed them completely?
The most tragic part in all of this … after the loss of those lives being the most tragic … is that there are so many Americans who will never realize the truth as long as the media covers Obama at any cost …. even at the cost of American lives.
Born to run.
That is of course just what Obama was born to do … obviously. We all see that … and now right in the middle of the Benghazi hearings... it is tim to run to Texas.
Never mind that he is the Commander-in-Chief who naturally should have the final answer to every question asked.
That is the answer.
On the way .. spew a bit about how everyone of us who is not a native American is from someplace else …. therefore what?
No different than any of the millions of illegal immigrants in this country??
Now pass the amnesty bill!
Meanwhile … Boston and Massachusetts law enforcement officials confirmed Thursday that federal agents left them in the dark on the growing warning signs about Tamerlan Tsarnaev in the run-up to the Boston Marathon bombing.
Run! Run! Run!
Is Obama so well protected nothing but nothing can touch him?
Who is protecting him to such a degree and why?
The Benghazi hearings that began today so clearly defined what anyone in their right mind knew at the time … the whole attack was covered up right from the top and so what if a few Americans lost their lives… after all … according to Congressman Cummings (D-Md)… “death is a part of life”.
That explains Benghazi away nice and neatly.
The sad thing … and the scary thing .. is that Obama will not be affected by this in any way whatsoever even though we all know he is the one who orchestrated the whole cover up.
Will Hillary feel a pinch?
There is nothing new here.
Dare to speak the truth?
The same thing happened when people protested after Obama seized General Motors …. especially those people who lost their life savings in General Motors stock … and those who lost their businesses … those dealers forced to close. Any who dared protest too strongly were severely threatened enough from the White House to convince them to swallow hard and take their losses or else.
Anyone with any bit of clear head and common sense can see so clearly what is happening in Washington. The question is is their anyone out there strong enough to stop it?
This Benghazi tragedy that did not have to be a tragedy except for the fact that Obama was on the verge of facing reelection so it just could not be allowed to be a terrorist attack on Americans would have stopped any Republican dead in their tracks … had a Republican been calling these same moves.
Who in the world is protecting him and … once again… why?
Will we ever get our nation back?
If Keira Wilmot’s arrest and charges of two felonies for working on a science experiment stands … the worm has finally and forever turned.
This country can and never ever will be the one we have always loved.
That country will be one that will be forever longed for … and one our grandchildren will never know.
… when common sense and reason cease to exist………………………
The war on Christianity is nothing new. It has gone on since the birth of Christ .. or before.
It has now come home in a way that shows with no doubt just where our rulers lie. Don’t forget …. Obama is the Commander-in-Chief. He has the final say … does he not?
The entire article from breitbart.com follows:
The statement, released to Fox News, follows a Breitbart News report on Obama administration Pentagon appointees meeting with anti-Christian extremist Mikey Weinstein to develop court-martial procedures to punish Christians in the military who express or share their faith.
(From our earlier report: Weinstein is the head of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, and says Christians–including chaplains–sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ in the military are guilty of “treason,” and of committing an act of “spiritual rape” as serious a crime as “sexual assault.” He also asserted that Christians sharing their faith in the military are “enemies of the Constitution.”)
Being convicted in a court martial means that a soldier has committed a crime under federal military law. Punishment for a court martial can include imprisonment and being dishonorably discharged from the military.
So President Barack Obama’s civilian appointees who lead the Pentagon are confirming that the military will make it a crime–possibly resulting in imprisonment–for those in uniform to share their faith. This would include chaplains—military officers who are ordained clergymen of their faith (mostly Christian pastors or priests, or Jewish rabbis)–whose duty since the founding of the U.S. military under George Washington is to teach their faith and minister to the spiritual needs of troops who come to them for counsel, instruction, or comfort.
This regulation would severely limit expressions of faith in the military, even on a one-to-one basis between close friends. It could also effectively abolish the position of chaplain in the military, as it would not allow chaplains (or any service members, for that matter), to say anything about their faith that others say led them to think they were being encouraged to make faith part of their life. It’s difficult to imagine how a member of the clergy could give spiritual counseling without saying anything that might be perceived in that fashion.
In response to the Pentagon’s plans, retired Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin, who is now executive vice president of the Family Research Council (FRC), said on Fox & Friends Wednesday morning:
It’s a matter of what do they mean by “proselytizing.” …I think they’ve got their defintions a little confused. If you’re talking about coercion that’s one thing, but if you’re talking about the free exercise of our faith as individual soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines, especially for the chaplains, they I think the worst thing we can do is stop the ability for a soldier to be able to exercise his faith.”
FRC has launched a petition here which has already collected over 30,000 signatures, calling on Secretary Hagel is stop working with Weinstein and his anti-Christian organization to develop military policy regarding religious faith.
The FRC petition has now exceeded more than 40,000 signatures at the time of this update.
OH…. gun safety? Tell me more!
Tell me about madness.
Did we not vote a new Congress into office in 2010 to stop the madness of Obama as far as our healthcare goes at least?
Obviously Congress did not do its job.
Whatever happened to “we will repeal Obamacare”?
Now it is here.
The madness becomes us.
Congress did not do its job in the investigation of Benghazi either.. and of course.. Obama knows nothing about anything as usual…. the only thing he ever stood up and took credit for was the killing of Bin Laden. everything else is someone else’s “fault”.
‘…… at a press conference Tuesday morning, he said he wanted a smooth roll out for ObamaCare, but then added, “even if we do everything perfectly, there’ll still be, you know, glitches and bumps.” He reaffirmed his desire to close the Guantanamo Bay detention facility, but said “Congress determined that they would not let us close it.” He argued for an end to the sequester, only to add that he doesn’t have enough sway with Congress to make it happen. “You seem to suggest that somehow these folks over there have no responsibilities, and that my job is to somehow get them to behave,” he said to one reporter. “That’s their job!”
Obama is incapable of doing his job … Congress refuses to do its.
How did we the people ever become so vulnerable?
How soon will it be that Congress gives in to all the spending Obama wants just to stop the “sequester jester”?
Did we really think we put adults in Washington?
And … of courses they denied it! Did you really expect them to own up to anything? After all … that is what this administration is all about … denial …denial … denial…pretend … pretend … pretend.
How soon will it be that Congress gives in to all the spending Obama wants just to stop the “sequester jester”?
Isn’t the “sequester” being used in the same manner our local schools use a much wanted millage raise or renewal... do it or else? If you don’t give us the money we are demanding we will take your kids buses away … we will stop all sports … we will not allow them to eat lunch … whatever will get you the parent in the right mood to vote YES.
How soon will it be that Congress gives in to all the spending Obama wants just to stop the “sequester jester”?
And… in the meantime … a very important national crisis was taken care of yesterday … and our children are now allowed to have sex with no fear of consequences … at least the consequences of having a child… as the FDA approved a twisted bill that now gives those chldren access to the “morning after pill be sold without a prescription” .
And … that has to be the most disgusting news of the day … and once again… did Congress do its job?
Stephen Hayes offers a quick and dirty history of Obama’s nuanced relationship with his own program of cuts:
Obama: (1) proposed the sequester, (2) threatened to veto any attempt to avoid it, (3) ignored warnings about its consequences for months, 11:12 AM – 30 Apr 2013
4) promised it wouldn’t happen, (5) pledged to pay legal fees of federal employees if it did, (6) complained he had too little flexibility, 11:13 AM – 30 Apr 201
7) rejected Republican efforts to give him more flexibility, and then, (8) predicted calamity once the cuts he’d championed went through. 11:13 AM – 30 Apr 2013
… and all of Washington is a kabuki… not just the amnesty… errr.. immigration … bill.
