NYT's defends Barry's dog eating days


Another Biden Classic

Turn up the volume so you can her the laughter. I was watching "The Five" last night, thought Dana Perino was going to fall out of her chair laughing.

...and this pathetic moron is the best the Democrats could come up with for VP.

(He's so f------stupid you almost feel sorry for him)

Rodney King..."I Would Have Pulled Over"

This guy makes Joe Biden look like Einstein. What does Rodney King have in common with Stephen King besides sharing the same last name? They are both authors. Rodney couldn't write a grocery list let alone a book. 

 Although King was beaten far beyond from what I thought was necessary to subdue him, his words "I would have pulled over" conveys he may have learned a lesson from all this. Afraid not... he's been arrested 11 times for various offenses since then! These are some of the infractions destroying any use he had as a symbolic figure of racial inequality. 

Trying to run over a police officer
Hitting his wife with his car
Committing indecent exposure while high on PCP
Driving while on PCP and crashing through a house
Threatening to kill his daughter and punching his girlfriend in the stomach

Reportedly, when asked how it feels to be stopped by the police so often, King said “it just beats the hell out of me.”

Maybe he's looking for another payday since I hear he blew through the $1.6 million he received the first time. 

That's his new girlfriend. So far she has no contusions.
Oh..BTW.. she sat on the jury that awarded him $3.8 million. 
His right index finger is covering up the guy's name who
actually wrote the book.

LOS ANGELES (KTLA) -- It's been 20 years since the Los Angeles Riots, and Rodney King -- the man at the center of it all -- is in the news again.

King, whose videotaped beating by police was seen all around the world, is now an author.

In his new autobiography, "The Riot Within," King says that his biggest regret is not pulling over that night in 1991, before his confrontation with the LAPD.

"I would have pulled over," he said in an interview with KTLA's Eric Spillman. "I would have just pulled over and got the ticket."

"I had a job to go to that following Monday, and I knew that I'd been drinking and was on parole, and I thought I could get away," King explained.

King says that during the beating that followed, he did not resist. Instead, he says he was just trying to stay alive.

"When I heard the words, 'N****r run, we're gonna kill you, n****r run'... You know, here in a street fight that's to the death," King said.

"I knew life was just a matter of seconds of me dying, so I've gotta try and cover up what I can... Keep my hands above my brain and just scream as loud as I could and as long as I could."

A year later, in April of 1992, King watched on TV as a jury acquitted the four police officers and riots broke out.

King says he was shocked to see the violence, but he was not surprised by the jury's verdict that led to the rioting.

"My case was so strong and so believable, they had to turn that thing around and make it seem like I was being combative and I was resisting arrest," King said.

"There was no other direction that they could have took because it was so clear as day that they had almost took my life."

The mayhem that followed the verdict resulted in 56 deaths, thousands of people hurt and hundreds of millions of dollars in property damage.

Tanesha's unable to contain her pent up emotions over the Rodney King incident felt the need to go "shopping"

In his book, King reveals that on the night the riots started, he put on a disguise and drove into South L.A. to see the burning and looting with his own eyes.

Someone yelled COPS!!! at the book signing

"I put on my reggae hat and braids and started out," King recalled.

"It was just too rough for me," he said. "I'm a tough guy, but that was a war zone out there. In our own backyard, we had a war zone."

King also reveals that, on that first night of rioting, a cousin brought over a pickup truck loaded with liquor and electronics that had been looted from stores.

"They were saying, 'This is for you man. We did this for you,'" King said.

"I'm like, I can't take it. I cannot take that. This is not what I expected."

King says he watched the rioting on TV for several days. He says he felt vindication at first, and then sadness and guilt.

He decided to go in front of the cameras after a phone call from his lawyer.

"He gave me a sheet of paper to read off of, and I wouldn't be able to read all that stuff that they had written down," King recounted.

"So I spoke what was from my heart, you know, 'Can't we all just get along?'" King said, recalling his now famous words.

"That's right off the top of my head -- 'Can't we all just get along?' After I'm dead and gone, it's a good thing for people to remember me by."

Since he spoke those words 20 years ago, King has been arrested 11 times for domestic violence, assault, drug use and, repeatedly, for DUI."

"I drink. I know the alcoholic gene runs in my family," King admitted.

But he says he's working hard to stay sober, and he has a new fiancee.

Cynthia Kelly served on the civil jury that awarded King $3.8 million in 1994.

They met afterward and then reconnected two years ago.

"We started talking and, you know, just one thing led to another," Cynthia said.

"Two days later I was like, 'Well, it was cool to see you again, I'm about to go home,' and he was like, 'Nuh-uh, you're about to be my girlfriend!'"

King says a lot of people are curious about how much money he ended up with from that civil case.

He claims that, after the lawyers got their cuts, he received about $1.6 or $1.7 million.

Obama...helping America Downsize

When Obama took office (2009) the median priced home was $172,000. As of April 2012 the value has dropped to $158,000.

Might be a good idea to take some of this stuff to heart when you go to the voting booth in November.

Lawmakers, Obama back Secret Service director

Two House Republican committee chairs said today they expect more departures in the wake of the Secret Service prostitution scandal, but expressed confidence in Director Mark Sullivan.

"I have full confidence in him," said Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, speaking on NBC's Meet The Press.

He added: "I would suspect within the very near future to have several other Secret Service agents leaving the agency."

King and Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Cal., chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, said they were less concerned with the "salacious" details of the scandal, than with the idea of agents allowing foreign nationals into a secure area.

President Obama has also endorsed Secret Service Director Sullivan, but is angry over the incident that overshadowed last weekend's trip to the Summit of the Americas in Cartagena, Colombia.

Maybe he should be a little more "angry". Sullivan's the same guy who was in charge during the Salahi party crasher incident. So far he has been at the helm of two major fuck ups. I don't know who's more inept; POTUS or the Secret Service Director.



Is that even possible?

"I think it's fair to say he was apoplectic," said campaign adviser David Axelrod, also on Meet The Press.

The incident involved at least 23 federal security personnel, a dozen members of the military and 11 military people.

Six Secret Service personnel have left the agency in the wake of the prostitution scandal, either through resignation, retirement, or dismissal.

Another five remain under investigation over allegations they brought prostitutes back to their hotel, two days before Obama arrived in Colombia.

One other Secret Service official has been cleared of "serious misconduct," but still faces "appropriate administrative action," said a statement from the agency.

The U.S. Southern Command says 11 military personnel remain under investigation.

King and Issa said investigators must still determine if Obama's security was ever compromised while in Colombia, something the Secret Service has so far denied. The lawmakers also said Sullivan must take steps to make sure something like this doesn't happen again.

Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., a Democratic member of the House oversight committee, said on ABC's This Week that hearings are likely on the incident. Maloney also raised cultural issues surrounding the Secret Service, noting only 11% of the agents are women.

"If there were more agents on the ground, maybe we would not have had this," Maloney said.

Also on ABC, Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, said she doubted the Colombian prostitution incident was a one-time thing.

"To me it defies belief that this is just an aberration," Collins said. "There were too many people involved. If it had been one or two, then I would say it was an aberration. But it included two supervisors. That is particularly shocking and appalling."

Common sense coming from Susan Collins of all people.

Obama ladles up hot bowls of class warfare

John Kass
Chicago Tribune

April 22, 2012

Mitt Romney isn't exactly my cup of tea, and loyal readers know this. But my readers are quite civilized and know that tea is served properly with silver spoons.

Not wooden spoons. And not earthenware spoons fit for turnips and onions. But silver spoons. Order afternoon tea at any fine hotel and you will see that they bring you silver spoons.

The silver spoon is for stirring, lightly, without clanking against the wall of the thin china cup. It is not a battle-ax to dismember your enemy, leaving his bones and meat upon the ground as you make speeches about civility. It is not a stiletto, for quick work unrecognized until it is too late. 

It is a spoon.

But President Barack Obama, cruelly and foolishly, wielded a silver spoon in an attack on Romney. His was a thrusting motion, and that lunge revealed something desperate about our president, something unseemly. I remember Obama as a younger man who said he wanted to transcend the broken politics of the past. Now what he wants is a second term.

"I wasn't born with a silver spoon in my mouth," said Obama at a campaign speech in Ohio last week. "Michelle wasn't. But somebody gave us a chance — just like these fine folks up here are looking for a chance."

Silver spoon? More like dining at the trough of Affirmative Action.

Who did pay for Obama to attend Occidental, Columbia, and Harvard? When you start digging into Obama's background, you turn up more questions than answers

 By the age of 20 the average American has had their picture taken hundreds of times at various events, holidays, weddings, vacations, etc.

You ever wonder why there are so few of Obama?

The spoon flashed as he stepped forward and tried to slip it somewhere between Romney's political ribs, the message unmistakable: Romney is the rich man, caring only for the rich, and I am the anti-Romney, born poor and guardian of the people.

Naturally, the class warrior didn't mention charging regular folks $1,000 for a handshake at a fundraiser, but class warfare is the theme of the Democrats in 2012.

 The Republican is of the equestrian class that rides over the poor, leaving hoof prints on their necks. And Obama is of the people, so please forget that presidential media guru David Axelrod just dropped $1.7 million on a gorgeous Chicago condo.

In America, only snobs and fools look down upon someone born poor. It's un-American. But if your father's poverty isn't your fault, then why should your father's wealth be a sin?

The opportunity to seek wealth is why our people came here, why they left their villages overseas to ride in steerage, seasick, eating black bread and spooning out the stew with wooden spoons, just on the chance that their grandchildren might hold a silver one someday.

My father plowed his fields with a mule named Truman. Does that make me more virtuous than the daughters of a president who attend the finest schools in the country? Of course it doesn't.

White House press secretary Jay Carney insisted that Obama wasn't talking about Romney. He said that anyone who thought Obama was referring to him might "be a little oversensitive."

But then I haven't really believed a thing Carney has said since he was a correspondent and wrote a revolting CNN; Time puff piece on the Daley machine. Chicago was drowning in debt and outright corruption, but you wouldn't know it from Mr. Carney.

Carney is the biggest Wuss in Washington
That awkward monthly moment for Jay

He gushed over Daley, and said that Daley watches over Chicago the way Andy watches over Mayberry. Yes. Chicago as Mayberry. Dig it.

Romney, of course, took great umbrage at Obama's silver spoon crack, saying it was aimed at his father, former Michigan Gov. George Romney, a former president of American Motors.

"The president likes to attack fellow Americans," said Romney on Fox News. "He's always looking for a scapegoat, particularly (those who) have been successful like my dad, and I'm not going to rise to that."

I find both of them flawed, Romney as the ring bearer for all that's wrong with the corporatist Republican smothering of the conservative spirit, Obama as the keeper of the federal leviathan, feeding it as it grows larger, squeezing the life out of entrepreneurship.

There are two kinds of politicians: those without personal wealth, and those with personal wealth. Those with money don't need politics to make more. Those without money need friends as they climb the ladder of public service.

Michelle Obama had such friends. She was making $121,910 a year in 2004 as a lobbyist for the University of Chicago hospitals. But two months after her husband took office as a U.S. senator, she was promoted. Her income zoomed to $316,962 a year.

(Interestingly... after she left her vacancy was never filled)

And the president had friends. One is named Tony Rezko. He's rotting in federal prison, although it was Rezko and his wife who put together the strange deal that helped Barack and Michelle buy their dream house in Kenwood that they never seem to visit anymore.

In prison, Tony Rezko doesn't use a silver spoon. He uses a plastic spork.

Bob Beckel...Probably the biggest buffoon on television

Yes he used the F word on national television. But that is of no consequence.

The real story, which is far more compelling, he blames Hannity for it!  He changes the discourse and trys to use it to his own advantage. This has been the  the liberal mantra all along.

 For instance conservatives are against anyone coming to America illegally. Democratic spin job...Republicans are against Hispanics. Conservatives say Obamacare is unconstitutional and so is free contraceptives.  Democratic spin job...Republicans have declared war on women. 

Beckel has a proclivity for pulling facts and figures out of thin air. Being this stupid sober I can only imagine what it was like when he was drinking.

Folks you are watching liberalism at its finest.

Fido...It's What's For Dinner

In Dreams of My Father — the book that all the "Hopey- Changey's" swore they read cover to cover back in 2007 — Obama discusses some of the food he ate as a young boy living in Indonesia:

Gives new meaning to this PETA ad

"I learned how to eat small green chili peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and, away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy). Like many Indonesians, Lolo followed a brand of Islam that could make room for the remnants of more ancient animist and Hindu faiths. He explained that a man took on the powers of whatever he ate: One day soon, he promised, he would bring home a piece of tiger meat for us to share."

Our first Muslim president.
 He's the best impostor we've ever had.  

Islam has an aversion against pork claiming  it's "unclean" but has no problem  with eating dogs. I wonder if you eat Free-Range-Terrier for dinner if you wake up with dog breath in the morning?

Hushpuppies anyone?

Facts Don't Lie

The $5 Trillion Man: Debt Has Increased Under Obama by $5,027,761,476,484.56

April 18, 2012

( In the 39 months since Barack Obama took the oath of office as president of the United States, the federal government’s debt has increased by $5,027,761,476,484.56. Although he has served less than a term, Obama is now the first American president to see the federal government's debt increase by more than $5 trillion during his time in office.

 The MSM reaction

During the full eight years that George W. Bush served as president, the federal government's debt increased by $4,899,100,310,608.44. (Rising from $5,727,776,738,304.64 to $10,626,877,048,913.08.)

The $5,027,761,476,484.56 that the debt has increased during Obama's presidency equals $16,043.39 for every one of the 313,385,295 people the Census Bureau now estimates live in the United States.

At the close of business on Jan. 20, 2009, the day Obama was inaugurated, the federal government’s debt was $10,626,877,048,913.08, according to the U.S. Treasury. By the close of business on April 16, 2012—as many Americans were working to finalize their 2011 tax returns to meet an April 17 filing deadline—the debt had reached $15,654,638,525,397.64.

The $5,027,761,476,484.56 in additional debt that the U.S. government has taken on during the 39 months that Obama has been president is more debt than the federal government accumulated in the first 219 years of the Republic.

The total federal debt did not exceed $5,027,761,476,484.56 until March 14, 1996, when President Bill Clinton was in the last year of his first term in office. On that day, the national debt rose from $5,025,887,531,178.79 to 5,035,165,720,616.33.

This is another fact that bears repeating.

Senator Barack Obama 2006

"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 can not 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."

To say he lied would be an understatement!

North Korea Breaks Off Agreement with US

This is a piece from Voice of America. My commentary follows.

The International Atomic Energy Agency says it is now unlikely to send a delegation to North Korea, after Pyongyang stated it is no longer bound by an agreement with the United States not to test missiles and nuclear devices.

Spokeswoman Gill Tudor made the announcement late Tuesday, ending hopes for the visit for which IAEA officials began negotiating with North Korea in March.

Earlier in the day, Pyongyang said it was breaking off a bilateral agreement to halt its nuclear activities and allow IAEA inspectors to enter the country after the U.S. suspended much needed food aid. Washington said North Korea did not keep its end of the bargain when it carried out its failed missile launch on Friday.

North Korea's Foreign Ministry vowed to continue trying to fire a long-range rocket into space to place what it said was a weather satellite into orbit. It also vowed unspecified retaliation now that the agreement with the U.S. is no longer in place.

State Department spokesperson Mark Toner said Tuesday that Pyongyang's statement was "not surprising, given their recent behavior." He said he could not predict whether North Korea is laying the ground work for a future nuclear test, as some fear.

"Frankly, it's very difficult to say. It's a very opaque regime. We parse out their public comments," said Toner. "We also know that in the past, there's been this pattern of bad behavior. So we can't preclude anything at this point."

Then why in the hell do we keep sending money and feeding them?

Apparently we sent them a Lincoln hearse stuffed with so many American taxpayer dollars they had to put the old man on the roof.

How many times does North Korea have to dump on us before we get the drift? Same goes for Iran. Why do we fool ourselves by engaging in a senseless dialogue with North Korea when we know they have lied to us time and time again?

 Just the other day Food Network did a segment called Hunger Hits Home highlighting childhood hunger in America. Some of these kids had not eaten in 3 days, yet here we are again attempting to send food to these lying bastards. If the North Korean government cared about their own people starving to death why are they investing in Nukes and so called satellite launchings? Couldn't that money be put to better use? 

This is not strictly an Obama screw up.

 It has been going on through every administration for the past 25 years. They play us for suckers through bribery. It goes like this. They tell us they're going to build a nuclear bomb unless the good ole' US of A sends them cash or food. Obediently, we have done both profusely over the years. What was the end result? They ate the food and used the money to buy the necessary components and the expertise of A. Q. Kahn to build a nuclear bomb, compliments of the American taxpayer.

The scene 6 months from now.

The Secret Service is shaking in their boots.

Watch out... he can barely control himself. He isn't cable of getting mad... he gets "angry". 

He's going to put his foot down with the SS  just like he did with the GSA.

Kind of reminds me of this "guy".

BTW...  In the SS prostitutes may not be the only option when it comes to getting boinked.


Judged by a jury of one's peers

Doesn't look good George.

Be careful what you wish for

On a tip from my brother Gary.
