Wal Mart Wins, UFCW Malcontents Lose in Black Friday Protests

The United Food and Commercial Worker's Union's best attempts to whip tens of thousands of Wal mart employees into a frenzy over wages, benefits and working conditions on Black Friday apparently fizzled yesterday: 

Despite concerns about pro-union protests hampering Black Friday sales, Wal-Mart Stores (WMT) said Friday that fewer than 50 of its employees nationwide participated in the demonstrations while about 22 million customers flooded into its stores.
The protests, which were planned by the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union, appear to have been tamer than some had expected. The demonstrations that did occur included many non-Wal-Mart employees, such as union organizers and workers in other trades like teachers.
“Only 26 protests occurred at stores last night and many of them did not include any Walmart associates,” Bill Simon, CEO of Wal-Mart U.S., said in a statement.
Wal-Mart said it did not experience “the walk-offs that were promised by the UFCW” and less than 50 of its associates participated in the protest nationwide.

Oh yes, the lefty media TRIED to make it sound like "hundreds" of the 1.3 million Wal Mart employees protested:

 According to organizers from the union-backed group OUR Walmart, hundreds of workers and thousands of supporters rallied across 100 cities, including Landover Hills, Md., Miami, Oakland, Calif., Chicago, Danville, Ky., Dallas and Kenosha, Wis.Wal-Mart pushed back, saying it knew of only a "few dozen" protests, and that most of the protesters were not its employees 
In one of the biggest protests, nine people were arrested outside of a Paramount, Calif., Wal-Mart store for failing to disperse, according to a Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department statement. An OUR Walmart spokesman said three of those arrested were Wal-Mart workers. Those arrested were to be released without bail, unless they had previous arrest warrants.
What is "OUR Walmart"? "OUR Walmart" is a front group for the UFCW's attempt to organize Wal Mart workers -- a group of utter malcontents who want everyone -- certainly all Wal Mart workers -- to be as miserable and pissed off as they are.

First of all it's Wal Mart not "OUR Wal Mart". Perhaps these protesters and the UFCW need a little lesson in capitalism. Wal Mart is not a collective owned by its employees or the community. It's not a group non-profit owned by a bunch of collectivist malcontents. It is a public corporation owed by its shareholders and it has as its primary goal to make money and grow its profits for its shareholders. As the corporation grows and prospers, employees and investors alike profit from their relationship with Wal Mart Corporation.  

Secondly, this protest has nothing to do with low wages, long hours and poor working conditions. It has everything to do with a greedy big union attempting to greatly enrich itself at the expense of Wal Mart and its workers. 

If the UFCW could organize every Wal Mart in the country, it could effectively double its membership which means doubling the dues it takes in that pay for the largess of the UFCW leadership. The average Wal Mart worker makes $14 an hour. No one could argue that this is an unfair wage for the relatively unskilled labor most entry-level Wal Mart workers bring to their positions. And while entry-level Wal Mart workers certainly don't start at $14 an hour, Wal Mart promotes from within so literally thousands and thousands of entry-level Wal Mart employees have moved up the ladder and made lucrative careers at Wal Mart by sticking with them, showing up for work everyday, doing a good job and proving their worth to the organization. As with any organization, being a malcontent and bitching about your low wages, "poor" (a relative term) benefits and working conditions, is not going to get you anywhere. Doing your best to prove your worth to the organization is what helps you move up the ladder at Wal Mart as it is at any large organization. 

The UFCW doesn't care about proving your worth to your employer -- they think the employer OWES the workers. The UFCW doesn't really care about wages, working conditions and benefits; it cares about taking money from hard-working employees to pay the outrageous salaries of its top brass. Take a look at the UFCW International's LM2 -- their government tax filing -- on the U.S. Department of Labor web site and count the number of union bureaucrats making over $200,000 a year. THIS is the reason they want to organize Wal Mart -- more money for organizing activities and to pay bloated salaries to their overpaid bureaucrats. Money they take $20 or $30 or $40 a month from workers making $30,000 a year. And they claim employers like Wal Mart mistreat their employees. 

Let's think about that for a second. How exactly DOES Wal Mart mistreat its employees? Poor wages? Consider what is asked of the average Wal Mart worker: They are checking out customers, staffing a store department, stocking shelves, greeting customers -- all jobs which are entry-level with the job training provided by Wal Mart, of course. They provide insurance benefits to full-time employees. Don't like the level of coverage? Find another job. This is a free country and any worker is free to vote with their feet. Most workers these days are just happy to have a job and benefits. And Wal Mart provides opportunities for advancement. Just talk to one of the tens of thousands of Wal Mart managers, department heads and higher who started at the bottom. How many of us who have been going to the same Wal Mart for years have seen someone start as a cashier and after a couple of years they are walking around the store carrying a clipboard and a radio?  Don't want to move up? That's fine. I'm sure Wal Mart is more than happy to have good cashiers and other employees who are dependable and want to stick around. In fact, Wal Mart probably does more to keep seniors who have nothing else but a Social Security subsistence to look forward to in their homes and out of cardboard boxes under freeway overpasses than any government program. So it's pretty easy to see that the average Wal Mart worker is hardly mistreated. 

Another thing Wal Mart does? It improves everyone's standard of living by selling merchandise at the lowest prices possible. Shop for groceries at your local Wal Mart Super Center for a few weeks THEN try to go back to your local (or even national) supermarket chain and check out the major sticker shock you experience. Average middle class American families across the income spectrum, including Wal Mart's employees,  save literally hundreds of millions a year (collectively of course) by shopping at Wal Mart. 

Now let's consider what the UFCW does for employees: It's easy: The UFCW doesn't produce or sell products and doesn't employ the workers it "represents". Therefore, it brings nothing to the table when bargaining with employers that the employer won't agree to first. The only leverage the UFCW has are these idiotic protests and strikes that bankrupt and destroy families. And employers like Wal Mart are increasingly standing up to the UFCW's thug-like tactics. Which means the UFCW can't do a whole hell of a lot for employees besides take their money and give them a whole bunch of empty promises in return. In fact there were a handful of employees out in front of Wal Marts yesterday who found out EXACTLY what the UFCW could get for them -- arrested -- because that is what they got for disrupting store operations. If I were Wal Mart management, they'd be fired as well. If you can't show up on time and put in a fair days' work but instead show up on the street in front of the employer that gives you a paycheck and benefits with a bunch of malcontents to complain about the company that provides your bread and butter, why would your employer want to keep you? 

The UFCW Wal Mart protest was an utter failure -- in other words, it perfectly mirrors the state of union representation in the private sector in 2012. Even after four years of the most union-supporting presidential administration in history -- Barack Hussein Obama started his career as a community organizer" which is essentially a union organizer without a union -- and the leftist union thug radicals Barry has appointed to the National Labor Relations Board, they STILL aren't able to make any headway in their attempts to organize large companies like Wal Mart. Private sector union membership is dropping from record lows to even lower record lows. 

Face it, UFCW  -- your group and your front group "OUR Walmart" are a collective of malcontents and losers. As the failed Wal Mart protests prove, Wal Mart employees are just like the vast majority of employees working for companies large and small: Generally happy, hard-working and dedicated to their jobs. They understand that unions bring nothing to the table and the dues paid to them serve only to enrich union fact cats at the expense of the employees they purport to represent.

Lefty Loons Visit the White House

President Barack Hussein Obama, current and future leader of the formerly free world for the next four years, hosted a cabal of lefty loons at the White House today, ostensibly to allow them to convey their wildest wet dreams to him in order that he could make them coming to life in bright, living color during his second term. Here's what the ebulent lefty loons had to say upon emerging from the White House according to that stellar, Obamacentrict news organization CBS News

Progressives coming out of today's meeting expressed confidence that Mr. Obama would stand his ground on the issue of raising taxes.

"MoveOn's 7 million members will be pleased to know that President Obama today strongly reiterated his steadfast commitment to ensuring that the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest 2 percent finally end December 31--and to protecting the middle class in the process," MoveOn executive director Justin Ruben said in a statement. He added that his organization is staying "fully mobilized" after the election in order to pressure Republicans on the issue.

Similarly, the Associated Press reports, Service Employees International Union president Mary Kay Henry said labor needs to be "as engaged as we were in the election throughout the rest of this year to make sure we get the Republican House to say yes to tax cuts for the middle class."

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi stressed to reporters today that while Democrats are seeking a "balanced approach" to the fiscal cliff that includes new tax revenues, they are primarily interested in finding some kind of solution. "I want you to be disabused of any notion that there's any widespread thought that it would be a good thing for our country to go over the cliff," she said. "We want an agreement."
Let's cut through the crap and get down to what these folks really are and what they believe.

As France Goes so Goes Obamacare

Well since the pansy-ass whipped dog John Boehner has admitted that he is not going to continue to challenge socialized medicine (Obamacare is the law of the land, don't you know) we can expect to see these types of issues coing down the pike in years to come:
AFP - French surgeons began on Monday an open-ended strike to protest against perceived threats to their freedom and pay.

The protest has been called by 30 unions and professional bodies who are making various demands, with organisers claiming a significant impact in some regions.

Hospital surgeons' union Bloc is leading a protest against an agreement accepted by the three largest doctors' unions at the end of October, which says any fees over 2.5 times the basic state tariffs is excessive.

The surgeons argue they have the right to charge higher rates.

Meanwhile, state hospital interns, who have joined in the strike, are fighting against feared new moves limiting the freedom of young doctors to work where they want.

Thousands of interns wearing white coats and surgical masks marched in Paris shouting: "Tomorrow's health lies with young doctors" and "No to discounted medical care".

Doctor's unions, state dictated fees on medical care, pissed off interns -- doctors of the future ... It's all part of the brave old world of socialized medicine. And it's already happeneing now in this country.   Another aspect of the French socialized medicine system protest:  
France has drawn plaudits for its health care system. But many doctors complain of being overworked and fear a slide toward free-market, American-style health care.

Many doctors suspended office hours during the open-ended protests starting Monday, forcing patients to look to emergency rooms for care.
France has drawn plaudits from whom exactly? The leftist news organization Associated Press? I've been a reporter before and I know their propesity to include little throw away lines that mean nothing but sound important like "France has draw plaudits for its health care system". Sounds like it's working real well now that it's "forcing patients to look to emergency rooms for care."

Oddly enough, this is just like the British health care system a few years back: ER service times were so poor because ERs were backed up so badly because the health care system sucked so bad that the queen's subjects couldn't get regular health care that they had to mandate minimum times for service in the emergency room. What happened then? Hospitals began to triage patients in ambulances because unless they made it through the door to the ER, they didn't count on the ER service times stats.

We already have the signs of trouble here. Medical school admissions are down -- after all, why would you take out hundreds of thousands of dollars in student loans to take a job where your prosepcts of making the type of money you need to pay off those loans is shrinking by the day? Current doctors are refusing to see Medicare patients because goverment reimbursement rates are way down and going down even more under Obamacare -- the exact thing France's doctors are protesting about is starting to happen here and that limits availability of care.

French doctors are so wedded to their broken socialist system that they are also protesting because they fear free-market reforms -- free-market reforms that are essential to keep France's health care system from collapsing further. Despite AP's claims that France's health care system is great, do you see anyone running to France or Great Britain or Canada for high-quality health care? Hell no, they go to the greatest health care system in the world bar none -- the United States health care system -- the only one in a major world power that bears any semblance of free-market capitalism.

Read the stories about the collapse of France's heatlh care system. Check out the NICE website and see how Great Britain "nicely" rations health care. Look at the waiting times for basic surgeries on the Canadian province web sites and find out how long you have to wait for surgery (Welcome to the surgical wait times web site!). This is where we are headed folks. And we don't want to go there. But apparently, this is what the majority of us want. And until Texas secedes from the union, this is what the rest of us are going to get as well. Forward! Obamacare!

Rich Twits Attempt to Rally Obama Base

Just like 2008, Barry has a wide assortment of rich twits campaigning with him in the hours before the presidential election:

WASHINGTON -- Some big-name celebrities will help President Barack Obama make his closing case to voters in the most competitive states.
Rock singer Bruce Springsteen will perform and introduce Obama on Monday as he kicks off the last day of the campaign in Madison, Wis. The two will then travel together to Columbus, Ohio, for another event with rapper Jay-Z.
First lady Michelle Obama will meet up with the president, Springsteen and Jay-Z later Monday in Des Moines, Iowa, for Obama's last event of the campaign. It's a nod to the state that put Obama on his path to the White House when he won the Iowa caucuses in 2008.

Bear in mind folks: These rich twits don't have to be smart; in many cases they don't even have to be talented. They are rich due to their mass appeal and have drifted through the last four years utterly unaffected by the wreckage their big buddy in the White House has strewn in the wake of his "fundamental transformation" of our society.

As food prices skyrocket, Bruce Springsteen doesn't have to worry when his housekeeper goes out to stock up the pantry. Likewise, it doesn't matter to Jay-Z whether the gas for his Maybach or Rolls Royce or Ferrari is $5 or $10 or even $20 a gallon -- he can afford it. And you can bet that the values on the dozens of mansions these twits own all over the country haven't dropped a whole hell of a lot.Hence, they don't have to spend a whole hell of a lot of time considering what will happen to the average middle class family (their fans) when their tax bill goes up $3,000 or $4,000 a year when Barry allows everyone's taxes to go up.  Barry is cool, he's hip and the fact that they are supporting the re-election of the "first Black president" helps them assuage their rich liberal guilt.

Every totalitarian society has their "rich" class. When the society collapses to the point where the proletariat can no longer afford to pay outrageous prices to be entertained by these brainless twits, the brainless twits will still survive.They have plenty of money stashed away. They'll just spend their time entertaining and sucking up to the ruling class. It's kind of funny how liberals spend so much time obsessing over Mitt Romney's wealth but never worry about the wealth of rich twits like Jay-Z and "The Boss".

More Lefty Voter Fraud

Liberal special interest groups interested in giving the rest of us four more years of misery and stagnation, are cranking up the voter fraud. Here's one recent example from Texas:

HOUSTON, TX - Friday afternoon at an early polling place located at 6719 W. Montgomery Road in Houston, NAACP members were seen advocating for President Barack Obama according to volunteer poll watchers on location at the time.
According to Eve Rockford, a poll watcher trained by voter integrity group True the Vote, three NAACP members showed up to the 139 precinct location with 50 cases of bottled water and began handing bottles out to people standing in line. While wearing NAACP labeled clothing, members were "stirring the crowd" and talking to voters about flying to Ohio to promote President Barack Obama.
After watching what was occurring, Rockford approached Polling Supervisor Rose Cochran about what she was seeing.
"I went to the polling supervisor and let her know that it was not appropriate that they were in the building handing out water. She ignored me. I repeated my statement. She told me that she would handle it. She did nothing. I then went to the assistant supervisor and he stood up, walked over to another table and then sat down. I then walked into the waiting room and they were reloading another dolly with more cases of water," Rockford said in a True the Vote incident report.
After handing out water and advocating for President Obama, the NAACP members started handpicking and moving people to the front of a long voting line inside the polling place according to the incident report. After multiple complaints from voters about the line cutting, Rockford received a phone call from downtown telling her to “stand down.”
 I keep telling you, these leftists can't win without fraud. It was true in the presidential race 52 years ago, it's been true ever since and has never been more true than it is today.

The Punk President Tells ObamaBot Zombies to "Vote for Revenge"

No, not the "punk" as in "punk rocker" president: The current president who is a punk -- a detestable juvenile completely unworthy of the office of poop scooper in chief let alone commander in chief. The immature jackass told his supporters that voting is their "best revenge."

"Best revenge" against what, a reasonable person might ask? Against every person in the country besides the takers -- those folks who live off the rest of us? Here let's give it a shot at figuring out exactly what The Great and Powerful Obama meant by this:

Obama Debt to Hit Default By Year's End

This is the biggest reason to throw this jackass out of office six days from today:

The Obama administration said on Wednesday that the nation would hit the legal limit on its debt near the year's end, although it can tap emergency measures to stave off a default and keep the government running into early 2013.
As of Monday, the U.S. Treasury was $235 billion below the $16.4 trillion statutory ceiling on the amount it can borrow. That gives the government enough funds to pay its bills, including interest on its debt and retirement health benefits, until the end of the year, the Treasury said, reiterating a forecast it made in August.
If Congress fails to raise the debt limit, analysts expect the Treasury will run out of options to avoid a default some time in the latter half of February. However, the forecast could change dramatically depending on how the administration and Congress deal with the massive tax increases and spending cuts due to go into effect at year-end.
After Tuesday's presidential and congressional elections, Washington will have less than two months to find a solution to the so-called fiscal cliff - the $600 billion in tax increases and budget cuts that could fuel a fresh recession.
Treasury officials, briefing reporters on debt sale plans, said it was urgent that Congress act to increase the nation's borrowing authority.
Oh sure, $10 trillion of the debt was run up by the first 43 presidents, but number 44 -- the once and falling messiah Barack Hussein Obama is responsible for $6 trillion of it in just the past four years. Every year under Obama, we have run trillion-plus budget deficits with no end in sight. This mere fact renders any talk by the Great and Powerful Barry of deficit reduction to be just what everything else that passes his lips is -- lies.All his talk about "balanced" cuts and deficit reductions is code for continuing the out of control spending that will keep us teetering on the brink of the fiscal cliff. The problem is not congress's refusal to continue to raise the debt ceiling (in fact they should have said no to debt ceiling increases long ago) it is Barry's out of control spending.

She Wants Barry to be Her First Guy

I wonder what Michele has to say about this:
As if the fact that Barry has been doing this to all of us (figuratively speaking) for damn hear four years now, this ad has got to be another new low from the Obama campaign (a campaign that has set record for new lows in campaign advertising): An ad in which a young Hollywood twit draws an analogy between her first time having sex and her first vote for Barack Obama. This is an official "I'm Barack Obama and I approved this message" ad and appears on the campaign's YouTube channel. 

I wonder how Michele feels about exposing Sasha and Malia  to this garbage? I don't suppose Barry really cares. I mean when you are running the sleaziest presidential campaign in modern history why would an ad that compares voting for you to losing your virginity bother you? Anything to win.

Obama Administration Allowed Chris Stevens to Die

This is the only conclusion you can come to when you look at the facts: That U.S. Official (read, the Obama Administration) told a CIA strike team to stand down TWICE during the terrorist attack that killed four brave Americans including Ambassador Chris Stevens:

An urgent request from CIA personnel to be allowed to go to the aid of the U.S. Consulate in Libya during the Sept. 11 attack was denied by U.S. officials, despite the fact that the team, which included at least one Navy SEAL, was only one mile away.

The officials twice told CIA officers  to “stand down” rather than help the Americans when shots were heard in Benghazi.

Fox News reports that sources on the ground said that former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods was part of a small team at a CIA annex near the consulate where Ambassador Chris Stevens and his team came under attack.

Stevens and three other Americans died in the attack.

When Woods and others heard the shots fired about 9:40 p.m., Fox reports, they notified their supervisors at the annex and requested permission to head to the consulate to help.

But the supervisors told them to "stand down," sources familiar with the exchange told Fox. Moments later, they were told the same.
This was a terrorist attack -- we already know the Obama Administration KNEW this was a terrorist attack almost from the moment it began despite their lies about the "spontaneous uprising". When US soil is under a terror attack, the president of the United States is ALWAYS informed. Recall the moment George W. Bush was told about the first 9/11 attack live on camera in front of millions of people for all the world to see in an elementary school classroom in Florida. We KNOW Obama was told about this attack and at that point, the president of the United States is in charge and controlling our response. Knowing the stakes, Barack Hussein Obama, Mr. "we want a relationship of mutual respect" with terrorists, had to be the one who told the CIA not to try to save the consulate in Benghazi. The blood of four Americans is on his hands.

Elderly Senior Who Relies on Social Security is Rich Democrat

I know this shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone because we've come to expect that Democrat politicians are provable liars -- pure and simple. Not just the "oh, they're all a bunch of liars' kind -- actual, factual liars. Every time Barack Obama's lips are moving, he's lying and you can prove it. Likewise for any other major Democrat candidate -- they have to lie to have a chance to win. But even using the "every major Democrat politician lies his ass off" standard, this one is sleazy:

An elderly man in a widely seen Democratic TV ad who assails Virginia Senate candidate George Allen for backing partial privatization of Social Security, possibly threatening his fixed income, is a prominent Democratic trial lawyer known for defending former Redskins owner Jack Kent Cooke in his legal tussles with flamboyant former wife Suzanne Cooke.
In the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee ad blanketing Virginia, Edwin Williams is portrayed as a home-bound retiree on fixed income. "I count on Social Security and and I don't want Washington politicians like George Allen privatizing it," says the still active lawyer.
The ad does not further identify Williams, other than show his Social Security benefit papers and the street number on his McLean mailbox on leafy Swinks Mill Road populated with million-dollar brick colonials. His home is assessed at over $987,000. The text of the ad simply calls Williams, "senior."
 Here's the weasel-ass ad:

Yes, there's poor old multi-multi millionaire Edwin Williams who "lives on Social Security" fixed income and doesn't want George Allen privatizing even a tiny chunk of his subsistence income. Never mind the fact that the guy is a rich lawyer -- founder of one of the most prosperous law firms in Virginia. Never mind the fact that "privatizing" Social Security would have no effect on current recipients - they are already drawing theirs. Never mind the fact that the whole program has been one big scam -- a ponzi scheme dreamed up by the Democrat's old hero FDR back in the 30s and has never been sustainable. The very first recipient paid in $18 and received $21,000. Current workers are promised three timeS or more a month what they are currently paying in at retirement, yet it is not earning interest, it's not even invested and, furthermore, it doesn't even exist. For the past 40 years, it has existed only as IOUs because the money is spent in the general fund as soon as it is received. 

So its not just this ad that is a lie. Democrats have bred the lie of Social Security over decades, robbing good people -- not rich, lying liberals -- of the opportunity to invest their money as they wish for their own retirement. And in return, establishing a legacy of entrenched dependence on a subsistence income stream in old age. Liberalism is a lie -- all of it -- and it is well on the way to destroying the very fabric of the economic and financial system of this country if we don't stop it. We are the firewall against the lies and deceit of the liberal left. Stop the lies, stop Barack Obama, stop the radical leftists in their tracks.

Eat Some Pizza, Cast Your Vote for Barry

There are those of us who realize that much of the push for early voting has absolutely nothing to do with convenience and everything in the world to do with giving Democrats as many opportunities as possible to commit voter fraud. Those of us in states where early voting is already occuring know what I'm talking about. In Iowa, early voting is up 500% from what it was in 2008, 90% of it was Democrat in the first days and TV cameras showed a near carnival atmosphere for Democrats right at the allowable limit for campaigning at the polls -- balloons, banners, stickers, food and partying. It seems it's no different in the early days of Colorado voting. In this case, they are plying college students with pizza and Repbulicans are rightly pissed:

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (CBS4) – Early voting only got under way on Monday and already a complaint has been filed.

Colorado Republicans say Democrats wrongly offered Colorado State University students free pizza and T-shirts in exchange for voting.

Colorado state law says campaigners have to be 100 feet from a polling place, but there is some grey area, particularly when a polling place is inside a large public building like CSU’s Lory Student Center.

The Colorado Republican Committee sent a letter to the Larimer County clerk alleging wrongdoing by campaigners for the Democratic Party during the first day of early voting on the CSU campus.

Voter fraud is the only way Democrats can win. They have to lie and misrepresent their bankrupt socialist agenda to even keep the polling tally close in the first place. But they realize that without rampant voter fraud there is no way they can finish first. That's why the push for early voting, the staunch opposition to voter ID laws and the proliferation of such corruptable practices as mail-in ballots in liberal states. Whenever you have more "voters" going to remote locations and the logistics of getting the ballots safely and securely to the auditor's office, you increase the chances of fraud. Whenever you allow people to register at the polls and confirm their eligibility later, you make it easier for people who are not eligible to vote to cast ballots. This has nothing to do with enabling eligible Americans to exercise their franchise rights. It has everything to do with making it easier for a party full of socialists with a hard left agenda to win elections. It's been going on for years and is only getting worse. If Mitt Romney is to win this election, he will have to win by a much larger margin that he would ordinarily just to make up for the 3-5% or more in Democrat voter fraud that will occur.

Unfortunately, this is just a fact of life in American politics these days. Perhaps, if we can get solid majorities in the House and Senate and the White House, we may be able to make inroads in cleaning up this voter fraud mess. But right now we're stuck with a voting system more worthy of a banana republic than a great representative republic.

Damnable Libya Liars

Well, the damnable lie is official now: Emails obtained by Fox News show that the Obama administration knew at the time our Benghazi consulate was under assault that an Al Qaeda group had taken responsibility for the attack:

A series of internal State Department emails obtained by Fox News shows some some of the initial assessments of last month's deadly consulate attack in Libya, including one email within hours of the attack that noted that the group Ansar al Sharia had claimed responsibility.

Ansar al Sharia has been declared by the State Department to be a an Al Qaeda-affiliated group. A member of the group suspected of participating in the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi has been arrested and is being held in Tunisia.

The emails obtained by Fox News were sent by the State Department to a variety of national security platforms, whose addresses have been redacted, including the White House Situation Room, the Pentagon, the FBI and the Director of National Intelligence.

Fox News was told that an estimated 300 to 400 national security figures received these emails in real time almost as the raid was playing out and concluding. People who received these emails work directly under the nation’s top national security, military and diplomatic officials, Fox News was told.

So 300 to 400 Obama Administration flunkies knew Barry, Mrs. Bill Clinton and Susan Rice were prepetrating a lie when they said a "spontaneous uprising" over a video was the cause of the violent deaths of US Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other brave Americans.

We have military forces less than 500 miles away in Italy that could have been there in an hour. And yet Barry and his minions sat on the information -- and their hands -- until they could come up with the lie that would best cover their sorry asses less than two months before the most important presidential election in a generation, while Americans were being brutally slaughtered in Libya and they could haave done something about it. In the aftermath of this carnage, they march out the troops -- including Barry himself -- to lie and lie and lie and lie some more until the truth was going to come out on its own and they had to reverse course and begin to leak the REAL truth and hope Americans weren't smart enough to call them on their lies.

This is a criminal cover-up by a criminal enterprise in the White House and someone needs to go to jail. A good place to start would be at the top. Let's throw Barry out of office on his sorry ass in November. Then we can begin a criminal investigation into the cover-up surrounding the deaths of four brave Americans in Libya.

Sorry Feminazis: The Wage Gap is BS

In the second debate, Barack Obama repeated this blather about women making 72% of what men make and this isn't the first time. In fact, Barry has been running around the country shooting his mouth off about alleged "wage gap" for the entire campaign. Well, a woman, Diana Furchgott-Roth  blows this idiocy out of the water in a column on NRO's The Corner:

We hear it over and over again: the myth of the wage gap. In Tuesday’s presidential debate, Katherine Fenton asked President Obama what he intended to do about “women making only 72 percent of what their male counterparts earn.”

Just one problem: Women make about 95 percent of what their male counterparts earn, if the male counterparts are in the same job with the same experience.

And the reasons why they "only" make 95 percent of what their male counterparts in the same job do? Exactly what you would think:  
Women have unparalleled freedom to choose their fields of study and careers. But many prefer to work part-time in order to combine work and family. Family-friendly jobs with flexible hours pay less than jobs with longer, inflexible hours.

It’s not the glass ceiling that keeps women out of the corner office; it’s a choice of how much time and effort to put into one’s career. The millennials call it “work-life balance.” For men and women, to make it to the corner office requires hours of work and travel and little time for family. That means missed birthdays, football games, and school productions. Women seem to mind missing these events more than men.
The 72% BS is just one of the many ways Barry and other liberals use lies and falsehoods to divide and attempt to conquer groups based on race, sex, income, class etc. Don't fall for the BS. Vote Romney.

Can We Shut Up About Romney's Taxes Already?

Perhaps this will do it: Between taxes Mitt Romney paid on his investments and money he gave to charity, Mitt Romney actually gave away 58% of his income.

With President Obama expected to use his second-chance debate this week to portray Mitt Romney as an uncaring rich guy, a new analysis of the GOP candidate's wealth shows that the millionaire was so generous that he kept just 42 percent of his income.

Obama's team has mocked the 14.1 percent tax rate that Romney is in as shirking his responsibility. But Charlottesville, Va.-based Marotta Wealth Management, which pens a widely-followed research blog, found that when Romney's tax burden and charitable gifts are included, he paid out 57.9 percent of his income.

"Giving $2.3 million to charity certainly should not be the basis of any criticism," said David Marotta. "It is money the Romney's did not keep for themselves, so I am counting it with the money lost to taxes."

His basic math for Romney's 2011 return: $18.6 million in income minus $10.8 million in taxes and charity results in a net of $7.8 million, 42.1 percent of gross. Ditto for 2010, said Marotta.
Let's remember, Romney already paid taxes on all the income he made in the last couple of years when he earned it. He has had no earned income in the last several years so this is money htat has been double-taxed. This means he probably paid a good 40% on that money between the taxes he paid on the income and the taxes he paid on the investments. Overall, Romney paid more in taxes and charitable giving in 2011 than Barack Obama's entire net worth -- and Barack Obama is not a poor man thanks to his ghostwritten books about the dreams from his communist father.

What does this mean? This illustrates exactly what anyone with a brain knows: Most rich people -- even rich liberals -- aren't greedy. They give copius amounts of money to charity and they create charities and charitable causes that do Americans directing their own money to charitable causes they support do far more good than the government does when it taxes it away from them and redistributes it. Not only do rich people like Romney create jobs for middle class folks, they do worlds of good for the least among us by donating to charities that help the poor and downtrodden. Many times, these charities work to instill responsibility and teach those they help important lessons about self-respect and self-sufficiency, unlike like the government which simply throws money at them with no strings attached.

So will you ObamaBot Zombies kindly shut up about Romney and his taxes? No, probably not.

The Obama Adinistration Wants to Talk to Maniacs

I seriously can't believe these idiots think that announcing their intentions to talk to Iran's leaders will score them brownie points two weeks before the election:

WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says it is prepared to talk one-on-one with Iran to find a diplomatic settlement to the impasse over Tehran's reported pursuit of nuclear weapons, but there's no agreement now to meet.
National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor said Saturday that President Barack Obama has made clear that he will prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon and will do whatever's necessary to prevent that from happening. Vietor said Iran must come in line with its obligations, or else faced increased pressure.
"The onus is on the Iranians to do so, otherwise they will continue to face crippling sanctions and increased pressure," Vietor said in a statement. He noted that efforts to get Iran back to the table with the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council and Germany — the so-called "P5+1" — continue.
So Barry is prepared to talk one on one with maniacal nut jobs who again and again announce their intentions to see Israel wiped off the face of the earth and all of us dead? The sheer stupidity of this should automatically disqualify this moron from running for president in the first place. Unfortunately it doesn't, but if this moron gets re-elected this type of inept, bungling, inane, naive foreign policy will continue. Can we handle four more years of being the laughing stock of the world? Yes, the United States of America, former superpower, current and future paper tiger, laughingstock of the world -- just as Barack Hussein Obama Jr., father of the drunken communist Barack Hussein Obama Sr., who loathed capitalism and wanted to stick it to the imperialist pigs,  likes it. We're no more exceptional than any other country, so why not grovel at the feet of maniacs who hate us?

We have this idiocy on the heels of a massive cover-up of embassy security failures that led to the deaths of four Americans in Libya; the Arab spring Barry touted that turned into a massive resurgence of radical Islam  (oh, yeah, I forgot, al Qaeda is "on the ropes"); China growing rapidly into a world superpower; Russia laughing their asses off at the weak and feeble Obama Administration while Barry is whispering sweet nothings into the ear of the Russian puppet prime minister about how he'll be able to genuflect to them with more authority when he is re-elected and has nothing to lose.

Is any of this enough to make ANY of you ObamaBot Zombies sit up and take notice. Probably not as long as Barry promises you free birth control, a free abortion on every health plan and not to kill Big Bird.

Another "Green Energy" Company Bites the Dust

Does the fact that another of Barry's pet "green energy" companies bit the dust surprise anyone?

The bankruptcy filing yesterday by electric-car battery producer A123 Systems Inc. (AONE) gave Republican Mitt Romney fresh ammunition to criticize President Barack Obama’s record on the economy. 

“A123’s bankruptcy is yet another failure for the president’s disastrous strategy of gambling away billions of taxpayer dollars on a strategy of government-led growth that simply does not work,” Andrea Saul, a Romney campaign spokeswoman, said in an e-mailed statement yesterday.
Billions and billions pissed away by this administration on technology that isn't viable and isn't marketable as much as try. How many of these companies have failed; Here's the short list:

Fisker Automotive
Tesla Motors
Solyndra LLC
Ener1 Inc.

Total taxpayer dollars pissed away on these flops:  Tens of billions. Loans to the two car companies totaled $5 billion+. Solyndra -- nearly $600 million, $249+ million to this stupid battery company. And these are just the ones we know about.

This doesn't count the $7500 (now $10,000) in tax credits to buy worthless electric cars that don't work the way they are supposed to. And even with this tax credit, they can't give away Chevy Volts. If you want to go out and buy a "non-electric" electric car, knock yourself out, but don't expect the taxpayers to pay you a bonus for it.

Meanwhile back at the White House, we cut back on oil leases on public land, throttle offshore oil leases while loaning other countries money to drill offshore where we should be drilling and use the EPA to beat the coal industry to death, killing tens of thousands of jobs in the process. In short, we are discouraging production of all of the current energy sources that work while we piss money away on unproven, unmarketable, money-losing technologies that don't work.

A few weeks back on the campaign trail, Barry made fun of Mitt Romney's claim that you can't put a wind turbine on the back of a car. The fact that he would mock this factual statement shows just how out of touch with reality he is. Throw a wind turbine or solar panel on the back of your car and see how far it gets you. Hop in a Nissan Leaf and head off for a nice 500-mile drive across country, try to fit your family of four and all their luggage into that "Smart" car fro a trip to Disney World from Iowa. Go out and get an estimate on going off the grid by putting a wind turbine or solar panel in your back yard then see what happens when the wind don't blow or the sun don't shine. This stuff doesn't work and all the taxpayer money Barry throws at it won't make it work, which is just one of the hundreds of reasons why Barry has to go.

FINALLY! Barry Takes the Blame

I'm sure he only did it because he was forced into it, but Barry admits what we have known all along: That the blood of Chris Stevens and three other brave Americans is on his hands:

In a notable moment in tonight’s Hofstra University debate, President Obama took responsibility for the Benghazi attack that resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.
“I am ultimately responsible for what’s taking place there,” he said.
Now that it's finally out in the open, can we have some indictments for the cover-up please? Start with Barry and the most worthless Secretary of State Since Madeline Aldumb: Hillary Clinton.

Mrs. Bill Clinton Takes the Fall

First, it was the video: Susan Rice was trotted out to lie about the "spontaneous" reaction to some crappy YouTube video: Then we through our brave intelligence community under the bus along with our dead ambassador who obviously isn't around to defend himself by saying the intelligence was flawed and Ambassador Stevens didn't request additional security even though the facts clearly show that he did.

Now it's Benghazi attack cover-up Part 3 (or is it 4): Mrs. Bill Clinton falls on her sword:

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton assumed responsibility on Monday for the security failures that resulted in the Sept. 11 attacks on the U.S. consulate in Libya that killed four Americans – but said the “fog of war” led to the White House’s shifting explanations for the assault.
"I take responsibility," Clinton told CNN after she arrived for a visit in Lima, Peru. The interview was the first Clinton had given about the assault in Benghazi that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and four other U.S. citizens.

The Obama administration initially attributed the attacks to anti-Muslim sentiment toward a film made by a California real estate developer. It later became clear that intelligence officials suspected that the assault was terrorism, and officials now have linked the attack to al-Qaida cells in North Africa.

Beating back attacks of a cover-up by the White House, Clinton attributed the administration's shifting story to "the confusion you get in any type of combat situation."

"Remember, this was an attack that went on for hours," Clinton told Fox News, also in Lima. "There had to be a lot of sorting out. ... Everyone said, ‘Here's what we know, subject to change.’"

Read more on Hillary Clinton: 'I Take Responsibility' for Libya Failings
Important: Do You Support Pres. Obama's Re-Election? Vote Here Now!

So Mrs. Bill Clinton went to a  friendly news organization and confessed: The first sentence should read "Mrs. Bill Clinton assumed the position and took the fall for Barack" who is ultimately the one responsible for this catastrophic failure and resulting Watergate-style cover-up. And did you notice, the word "war" was used? Thought this was just a "bump in the road" on the way to blissful peace in the Middle East.

I'll get back to you when the NEXT version of this cover-up breaks.

Unique Debate Technique: The Obnoxious Liar

As we all know, Barack Hussein Obama, the once and falling liberal messiah, turned in a piss-poor debate performance last week. His handlers found out a couple of things: First, Barry is a deer in the headlights without his pal the teleprompter. Second, soft-pedaled lies told politely don't sell well. What the Democrats needed for the veep debate was a loud-mouthed obnoxious liar and a cooperative moderator. Last night, they got both.

This isn't to say that Joe Biden won the debate -- there wasn't a damn thing Barry's buddy's ex-wife Martha Raddatz, the cooperative moderator, could do about it. To the contrary the majority of the country (with the possible exception of CBS's post-debate polling sample) were put off by his boorish, rude, disrespectful smirking and the 96 interruptions of Paul Ryan which went virtually unchallenged by a once-prominent member of Barry's social circle. (Barry attended Martha and Julius's wedding when he was nothing more than a punk community organizer -- way before he became a punk president. "Julius" is Julius Genachowski, Barry's FCC commissioner and a big proponent of reinstating the Fairness Doctrine as a way to mute conservative talk radio.). But, by golly, the Polident folks had to be happy with Joe's shiny white but obviously fake chompers. 

Joe's technique (or lack thereof) was apparently to lie as loudly and obnoxiously as possible and make the lie sound as authoritative as possible. Problem is that, without exception, Joe never misses an opportunity to stick his foot in his mouth and that doesn't change just because he is on a televised debate in front of tens of millions of people. No, in fact, it seems that Biden was emboldened by the obnoxiousness of his arguments and he seemed to think the the more obnoxious he was, the more authority his lies had. Joe is known for shooting his mouth of, but rarely does he do so with as much confidence and presumed authority as he did last night. Let's look at a couple of examples:

Joe claimed to Martha that extra security was not requested by Ambassador Christopher Stevens even though he knows this is false. State Department cables indicate that extra security was requested as far back as March of this year. Additionally, we just had congressional hearings in which State Department officials admitted that extra security had been requested and there had been death threats against Stevens dating back to last summer.

Joe attempted to revive the old Lloyd Bentsen "you're no Jack Kennedy" canard while Paul Ryan -- the only candidate of vice-presidential timber on stage last night -- tried to calmly explain how John Kennedy, Ronald Reagan and GW Bush spurred economic growth and caused treasury revenues to skyrocket by lowering taxes. Fool, that he is, Biden insisted "that's never worked" despite the mountains of evidence that it has and does. What doesn't work is the class warfare that was a staple of his debate material. Again, Ryan, the only person on the stage who looked presidential, calmly explained that you could confiscate all the wealth of every American family making $250,000 a year and over and it would run the country for 60 days. But, ole' Joe has never been one to be bothered with the facts.

Joe Biden didn't do a whole hell of a lot last night besides prove that he is what we all know he is: An old fool. Sure, he may have made the hardcore ObamaBot Zombies all giddy because they mistake an obnoxious boor for a great debater. But anybody with a brain can see past obnoxious, rude, disrespectful behavior that is unbecoming of a guy who is supposed to be the vice president of the United States of America. We see this guy for who he is: An utter fool who, after 40+ years in Washington, symbolizes everything that is wrong with the federal government. Paul Ryan is the best and the brightest. Joe Biden is the last old fool standing.

On his way to being the last old fool standing, he's been on the wrong side of every issue from the Trans-Alaska Pipeline which has safely pumped 18 billion barrels of oil over the last 35 years to all of the steps Ronald Reagan took to win the Cold War and bring down the Soviet Union. He's opposed rational tax policy, solid national defense policy and any economic policy that made any sense. He should have been booted out of Washington on his ass decades ago. Instead, he was the guy selected to add "gravitas" to a ticket headed by a young, inexperienced punk named Barack Obama in 2008 -- not because he was smart and experienced, but because he was an old fool that the Democrats could say had "experience" but wouldn't threaten the inexperienced punk at the top of the ticket -- the lowest common denominator with "experience." Joe Biden is not someone to be taken seriously -- he's a fool to be pitied. And it doesn't matter how loudly, obnoxiously and rudely Joe states his obnoxious lies, they are still just that: Lies.

Sesame Street Tells Obama: Stop Using Us in Ads

It seems that Big Bird is none too happy about Barry using them as ammo in political attacks against Mitt Romney:

Big Bird, a bright-yellow protagonist of children’s television show “Sesame Street,” wants out of his role in a nationwide television advertisement for President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign.
In the 30-second TV ad and an accompanying statement, the president’s re-election team needled

Republican challenger Mitt Romney for focusing on cutting government support to “Sesame Street” distributor PBS, which would do little to reign in excess spending, instead of offering specific details about financial regulations needed to prevent financial fraud, such as the Ponzi scheme orchestrated by Bernie Madoff.

“Mitt Romney knows it’s not Wall Street you have to worry about, it’s Sesame Street,” says the narrator in the spot, set to run on cable TV nationwide. “Mitt Romney. Taking on our enemies, no matter where they nest.”

But Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit educational organization behind the long-running educational show, wants the ad removed.
“We have approved no campaign ads, and as is our general practice, have requested that the ad be taken down,” according to a statement from Sesame Workshop.
The Obama campaign has received the request and is “reviewing it,” said Obama campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki.
 The idea that we would fund Sesame Street, a highly successful program that has taken in literally billions in profits in its 43-year run, is ludicrous. The idea that Barry would actually boasts about giving money to a program that makes money hand over fist and has been self-supporting for decades is ridiculous -- kind of like giving Bill Gates housing assistance. The practice of using this non-profit 501c3 organization in ads attacking Mitt Romney because he wants to be fiscally responsible and not give money to a highly profitable television program is beyond the pale.

Barack Obama: the Campaign Finance Crook

Or so it would seem since Barry's campaign doesn't seem particularly interested in verifying where its small campaign contributions are coming from. The Government Accountability Institute has been looking at the possible proliferation of illegal foreign campaign contributions -- particularly by unverified, unsecured online credit card transactions:

Credit cards include a security code, usually three digits in length, known as the Card Verification Value (CVV) code.  If you’ve purchased anything online, you have almost certainly used this code – it’s the “number on the back of the card.”  These codes are regarded as a fairly effective anti-fraud measure, and are very widely used in electronic commerce – about 90 percent of online retail transactions require the buyer to enter their CVV code, and most charity organizations require it for credit card donations received by telephone or Internet.

 Can you guess what campaign is the king of accepting unverified, unsecured credit transactions as campaign donations?

Kid Rock for Romney/Ryan

Bucking the trend of liberal elite rock stars like Jon Bon Jovi, Kid Rock came out in support of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan at a rally in Michigan yesterday:

ROCHESTER, Mich. – Rep. Paul Ryan had a rock star introduction at a campaign rally in front of thousands this evening when Michigan native and Mitt Romney supporter musician Kid Rock addressed the crowd before the GOP vice presidential nominee.
Rock, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, struck a tone of togetherness during his brief speech, saying, “I really believe strongly that it’s OK to disagree on politics and the direction of our country without hating one another.”

Rock, 41, said it can be hard being a Republican in the entertainment industry and he knows his position “may alienate a few fans.”
“I mean it’s no secret that I am embedded in an industry that leans very left and I’ve listened to all the arguments and visions for our country. Don’t worry, I’m not going to give you a recap or stand up here and preach politics like some of my friends in Hollywood,” Kid Rock, dressed in his signature fedora hat, told the audience at Oakland University here.

It's nice to see a rock star with a brain. Kid Rock joins Ted Nugent as the two lone conservative rock stars in the known universe. Great job!

Lara Logan Says Obama Terror Strategy is a Failure

Remember Lara Logan? The CBS reporter who was kidnapped, beaten and raped during Barack Obama's "Arab Spring" in Egypt while he was hailing democracy breaking out all over everywhere in the Middle East (haha)? She's blasting Barry's feckless foreign policy saying it's been a huge failure:

During a recent keynote address at the Better Government Association annual luncheon last Tuesday, Logan delivered what the Chicago Sun Times called “a provocative speech” to some 1,100 movers in government, politics, media, and the legal and corporate arenas. She explained that the Taliban, al Qaeda and its proxies haven’t gone away and are in fact re-energized and coming back in force. Logan also informed the crowd that a “lie” is being propagated by the American government.

“I chose this subject because, one, I can’t stand, that there is a major lie being propagated…” Logan announced. The lie is that the U.S. military has tamed the Taliban.

“There is this narrative coming out of Washington for the last two years,” Logan began. It is driven in part by “Taliban apologists,“ who claim ”they are just the poor moderate, gentler, kinder Taliban.”
“It’s such nonsense!”
This lie is the whole premise behind Barry's foreign policy and the reason for the massive cover-up of the terror attack on the Libyan consulate. When she says "the lie being perpetrated by the American government" ObamaBot Zombies, she's talking about your administration and its irresponsible -- no criminal -- foreign policy. The Taliban and al-Queda are stronger than ever and emboldened by weak, incompetent, corrupt "leadership" in the Obama Administration.

Mitt Romney Wants to Kill Big Bird

Yes, you heard right: First, Mitt Romney was a tax cheat -- a felon according to Harry "Dirty Land Deal" Reid -- next, he caused some poor sap's wife to die from cancer and "he didn't care". I bet you thought these were bad. Well, don't look now, but ole' Mitt has gone off the deep end  now -- he's proven he's pure evil. Yes, that's correct: Mitt Romney would kill Big Bird.

During the current campaign cycle, we've heard a lot of ridiculous crap about Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan from the ObamaBot Zombie drones. After all, if you don't have a positive record to run on, all you CAN do is sling mud at the opposition and hope some of it sticks. But this charge is truly moronic and it amazes me and the sheer number of brainless morons on the left that will repeat this crap.

Yes, that is correct: I am calling substantial portion of the electorate -- ObamaBot Zombies -- brainless morons. You would have to be a brainless moron to accept and repeat this leftist canard and think that it had even a tiny bit of credibility. Believing this requires you to suspend all ability to reason and think things through to a logical conclusion; that is if the majority of these lefty zombies possessed logical thinking skills in the first place. My thought is that the ObamaBot Zombie puppet masters know damn well what they are doing. And they are banking on the unthinking, intellectual dullards that are the ObamaBot Zombie lemming army to repeat this ridiculous charge almost by rote as if in a trance until every ObamaBot Zombie has gotten at least another ten drones to believe that Mitt Romney wants to kill Big Bird.

Shazam! Unemployment Below 8% Just in Time for the Election!

Does anyone believe this crap:

WASHINGTON, Oct. 5 (UPI) -- The former head of General Electric challenged the Labor Department's Friday unemployment report pegging the rate at 7.8 percent.

The U.S. unemployment rate for September fell sharply, down by 0.3 percentage points, hitting the lowest level since early 2009, the Labor Department reported.

The department said 114,000 jobs were added and the figure brought mixed reactions. Among them, former General Electric Chief Executive Officer Jack Welch, who accused the White House of rigging the figures to help President Barack Obama's re-election campaign.

"Unbelievable job numbers ... these Chicago guys will do anything ... can't debate, so change number," Welch wrote in a post to Twitter.
Apparently Jack Welch doesn't. And while his sentiment is a more than a little paranoid, we knew this was going to happen. Anyone with a brain could've told you that unemployment was going to magically fall below 8% the month before the election. But let's put this into perspective:

1. 7.8% unemployment, if true, would mean that we have moved less that a half a percent in the last two years.

2. If the same number of able-bodied Americans were in the workforce now as at the beginning Barry's term, the actual unemployment rate would be around 11.6%. But the labor market participation rate is the lowest it has been since the last time we had economic policies that mirror the ones we have now. That would be during and just after the disasterous Carter Administration that brought us the actual worst recession since the great depression.

3. If you were to include all the able-bodied Americans that have dropped out of the workforce or are underemployed in the economy, the unemployment rate would be closer to 14%.

4. Barry and his minions conveniently only count jobs added when they claim 4 million jobs created under his regime -- a pathetic figure as it is when you consider that at one point in the Reagan recovery we created 1 million jobs IN A MONTH. But the other thing Barry and his minions don't do is count the Americans who have given up looking for work. So to be truthful about it, you take the "jobs created" against the Amercians who have quit looking for work and come up with a net loss of 1.3 million jobs during Barry's reign.

5. The "jobs added" numbers Barry touts are actually worse than pathetic when you consider the fact that paltry jobs numbers like 114,000 added don't even keep up with population growth. You need 400,000 or better added per month to just keep even, And we almost never get 400,000 in a month and if we do the number is almost immediately revised down.

When you look at how the unemployment statistics are manipulated it's not hard to see how the U3 -- the widely-publicized unemployment rate would magically drop below 8% just in time for the election. Mark my words: This rate will be revised upwards when the October number comes out not on November 5, but conveniently, probably November 7 or 8.

Obama Wanted to Try Osama

Great idea, Barry: Bring public enemy #1 to the U.S. for a trial by what? Ajury of his peers?

This little tidbit of information is being reported in a book about the events surrounding the raid on Osama bin Laden's compound by Mark Bowden:

NEW YORK, Oct. 4 (UPI) -- President Barack Obama considered putting Osama bin Laden on trial if the al-Qaida boss had given up when Navy SEALs raided his Pakistan compound, a book says.

Obama said he leaned toward the possibility of bringing bin Laden to trial in the U.S. federal court system for masterminding the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States, journalist Mark Bowden says in "The Finish," to be released Oct. 16.

"Frankly, my belief was if we had captured him, that I would be in a pretty strong position, politically, here, to argue that displaying due process and rule of law would be our best weapon against al-Qaida, in preventing him from appearing as a martyr," Obama is quoted in the book as saying.
I don't like to put a lot of stock in books that purport to quote people third-hand verbatim. But when you consider that Mark Bowden is a respected writer that hasn't been known to get things wrong, Barry is a lying leftist who hasn't gotten ANYTHING right in his entire political career -- particulalry the presidency where it counts for all of us -- and this just seems like the kind of idiotic thing Barry would say, this version of the events seems perfectly plausible. After all, Barry and the most corrupt attorney general in U.S. history are still planning to try Khalid Sheik Mohammed in civilian court in this country.

These leftist ideologs, like their cheerleader, the court jester of Fox News, Juan Williams, who put forth this opnion on The Five today, believe that terrorists deserve "due process" of U.S. law. I got news for you, morons, foreign terrorists don't get due process and neither did the 2973 Americans they killed on 9/11.

You Know it's Bad for Obama When Even Axelrod Admits He Lost

Barack Obama got his ass handed to him by Mitt Romney last night. Even David Axelrod admits it.

When a communist like Axelrod can't even spin Obama's deabte performance, you know he tanked. All Axelrod was left to do was sputter some inanities about Mitt Romney lying:

Romney had delivered ‘a very vigorous performance but one that was devoid of honesty’, Axelrod said.

‘And so today, as the day after, I think the question for you [the media], for the American people is really one of character and whether or not a candidacy that’s so fundamentally rooted in hiding the truth and the facts from the American people and deception is the basis of trust on which you assign the presidency to a person.

‘So that is what we are going to focus on moving forward. We’re going to hold Governor Romney accountable for the things that he said last night and we’re going to make him justify those claims – as I hope you will make him justify those claims.
Of course, we know from past expereince and from watching Obama these last four years, that when a communist like Axelrod (or anyone remotely connected with Obama for that matter) says someone is lying, they are in fact telling the truth. And the truth sucks for Obama because he has spent the past four years convincing us that black is white and white is black: "Pay no attention to that TelePrompter filled with lies" because the liberals once and fallen messiah can do no wrong, he speaks with a golden tongue and everyone should believe what he is saying simply because he says it.

Well, that dog don't hunt anymore. The golden tongue is a forked tongue and the president is a liar. His agenda is bankrupt, his list of accomplishments is empty. We have seen "fundamental transformation" and it isn't America. Mitt Romney exposed this for all to see last night and kicked Barry's ass. When the lapdog liberal media can't even spin it, you know it was bad for Barry. Keep up the good work, Mitt. Expose this lying bastard for the empty suit he is.

Gitmo Coming to a Prison in the Midwest -- Again

If you live in the Midwest, that is.

Yes, we thought we killed this "job creator"a long time ago. But Barry's administration apparently thought that when no one was looking, in the heat of a presidential campaign was a great time to buy a prison to house terrorists right in the heartland:

(Reuters) - The federal government will buy an Illinois prison that the Obama administration once considered as a successor to the detention camp at Guantanamo Bay, Attorney General Eric Holder said on Tuesday.

Holder said the Thomson Correctional Center will house U.S. inmates and that there are no plans to revive a 2009 effort to move some Guantanamo detainees to the United States.

Congress blocked funding for President Barack Obama's idea and tightly restricted all transfers from the camp at the Guantanamo Bay U.S. naval base in eastern Cuba.

Reuters is doing a tremendous job as the Obama spin machine here but the simple fact of the matter is this: Why else would Eric Holder be buying this prison -- against the wishes of the U.S. House which refused to autorize this purchase -- unless he was planning on putting his buddies from Gitmo that his former law firm has vigorously defended in the past there?   Let's face facts folks: Barry and his ilk consider many of these terrorists to be wrongfully imprisoned and in 2008 he ran on a whole bunch of stupid promises to his base that he has yet to fulfill. Some of these include telling the enemy exactly when we plan on getting out of Iraq and Afghanistan and if you recall back when this whole socialist nightmare began in January of 2009, Gitmo was going to be closed within the year. Until the practical realities of plopping hundreds of terrorists smack dab in the middle of the U.S. came home to roost. Not a whole lot of people want to live in a place where their fellow residents consider them infidels that they have committed to Allah to kill. So wit until everyone is wrapped up in the last month of a presidential campaign and slide it in under the radar. Then you can fully implement your plan after the election when you're a lame duck and Americans can't kick you out.   As this story points out, Illinois is safely in Barry's column so he can afford to piss off a few folks who don't want to have terrorists housed in their neighborhood. But if it's any consolation, listen to Little Dick Durbin -- the putz Democrat senator from Illinois: Housing terrorists is a "job creator"!

Huge Obama Tax Increase for YOU

Think Barry wants to only raise taxes on "millionaires and billionaires". Think again:

A typical middle-income family making $40,000 to $64,000 a year could see its taxes go up by $2,000 next year if lawmakers fail to renew a lengthy roster of tax cuts set to expire at the end of the year, according to a new report Monday

Taxpayers across the income spectrum would be hit with large tax hikes, the Tax Policy Center said in its study, with households in the top 1 percent income range seeing an average tax increase of more than $120,000, while a family making between $110,000 to $140,000 could see a tax hike in the $6,000 range.

Taxpayers across the income spectrum will get slammed with increases totaling more than $500 billion - a more than 20 percent increase - with nine out of 10 households being affected by the expiration of tax cuts enacted under both President Barack Obama and his predecessor, George W. Bush.

The expiring provisions include Bush-era cuts on wage and investment income and cuts for married couples and families with children, among others. Also expiring is a 2 percentage point temporary payroll tax cut championed by Obama.
Let's call this what it is: This is not "the expiring provisions" of Bush-era tax cuts: This is what Democrats, including Barack Obama, have wanted all along. The reason these tax cuts are "expiring" is because Democrats didn't want us to have them in the first place and GW Bush didn't have the guts to stand on his principles and force them to make them permanent. So now we are in the place some of us knew we would be all along: With a commie lib for president who wants to raise everyone's taxes and has a convenient excuse to blame it on congress.

Barry has nothing to lose should he get a second term: He has no reason to sign any bill that lowers your taxes and mine. So if he is re-elected, welcome to the brave new world of economy-stifling tax hikes for you, me and everyone else who can't afford them.

What could your family do with that $2,000 to $6,000 a year? What are you doing with it now? Spending it on stuff you NEED? Like gas that has been higher for longer than an other time in our history? Or food, prices of which continue to skyrocket but which is conveniently NOT included in inflation numbers? That's okay, ObamaBot Zombies: Vote for your messiah. I know that, like millionaires and billionaires, you don't need the money anyway.

Day 19 -- Waiting for Barry to Punish Terror

Guess we're too busy trying to throw our national intelligence director under the bus while we cover up the fact that we KNEW this was a terror attack all along to actually PUNISH the terror attack.

Take Out the Poll Biases and Romney's Ahead

Did you hear? The 2012 election is over and Barack Obama won. At least that's the impression you would get if you landed on this planet yesterday and turned on the ObamaBot Zombie media.

The Middle East is in meltdown; maybe if the liberal's messiah ignores it long enough, it will go away. Kind of like Barry wishes Iran would just go away and stop threatening us and our greatest ally -- you know, the one whose prime minister Barry refuses to meet with.

Did you know the net increase in jobs during to Obama presidency is -1.3 million? (Yes that's MINUS.) Or that per capita household income is down 8% since Barry took office? I suspect most of you know that Barry's master plan that :"energy prices will necessarily skyrocket" is well underway. Can you imagine how the ObamaBot leftist media would be dogging GW Bush if gas prices doubled during his presidency? Oh wait, they did and it did. But do you remember all the praise they heaped on him when his policies helped slash gas prices by 200% in the waning days of his presidency? You don't because it didn't happen. But nary a word about Barry's culpability for the sky-high gas prices of today.

Yes for the last three and a half years, we've had the most pathetic presidency in modern history -- nothing has gone right except for Barack Obama's "fundamental transformation" of our country from a strong one into to a weak one.

Given all this, you would think Scott Pelley would have something more important to lead his CBS (emphasis on "BS") Friday night newscast with than the made-up story that Mitt Romney's presidential campaign needs to be "revived". But the ObamaBot Zombie media has their narrative and nothing will distract them from their duty to make everyone think our country is in the middle of a miraculous recovery and Mitt Romney's campaign is on the ropes.

Which brings us to the polls the leftist media routinely manipulate to make all of us think that there is no sense in Mitt and Paul even trying to win because it's useless -- based on the polls, Barry's popularity is skyrocketing and according to some, one party dictatorship would be fantastic -- amazingly some polls are showing that a majority of Americans think one-party rule would be just terrific. Ask Cubans what they think of one-party rule in Cuba.

The Lies Just Keep Coming ...

This time it's Joe Biden in the role of Pinocchio instead of his usual role as Bozo:
Biden: [Barry the Great]“Has done more for Israel’s physical security than any President of the eight I’ve served with.” (clapping)
I mean if this just isn't the whopper to end all whoppers. This administration IGNORES Israel even as it's prime minister begs for a meeting with the president and repeatedly asserts that in the absence of US assistance, Israel may have to act on it's own to stop Iran from getting a nuclear weapon. Barry pussyfoots around on the issue of Iran and nukes while every other word out of the smelly Iranian president's mouth references either nuking Israel, killing all it's people or death to America or all three at the same time.

Meanwhile back at the White House, Barry's busy schedule keeps him from meeting face to face with Benjamin Netanyahu because he's to busy meeting with David Letterman, the old boobs on The View and the Pimp with a Limp. And of course, he never misses a beat out on the campaign trail flying around the country on our dime even as our ambassador is killed in Libya, his consulate is burned to the ground and one of the brave Marines trapped with him chronicles their demise on Twitter. This was "just a bump in the road". As apparently, will be the destruction of Israel. And Biden is now asserting that Barry has done more to support Israel than any of the past eight presidents! The lies are brash, bold and in your face. And if the majority of us are stupid enough to believe the thousands being told by Barry and his minions, we unfortunately deserve another Obama term

Meanwhile, a tepid response from our candidate (of course I haven't heard video of this like I have Bozo's remarks so it may have more context than is presented here):

Mitt Romney in Wayne, Pennsylvania:
Romney: “I sure as heck don’t consider Iran becoming nuclear a bump in the road. We need someone who recognizes the seriousness of what’s ahead and is willing to lead.” (cheers)

Here's a suggestion Mitt: Make sure you stress that this president is the weakest president in modern US history and all of our lives are endangered by it:

 The safest we have ever been in this country in the late-20th and early 21st centuries was in the 80s when we were strong and every rogue nation knew that we would back up our talk with action. Ironically, for most of the 80's all we had to do is talk because the fact that we were willing to back up our talk with action kept things quiet.

Our enemies know we are weak, they know this administration mirrors a third-world dictatorship in it's dishonesty and corruption and they are taking full advantage of it. If this corrupt, third-world style thug is re-elected and Iran wipes Israel off the map, will anyone remember Joe Biden's lies?

Please Mr. Obama, Can You Spare a Pill (or a Rubber)?

Seriously? Is this what we are reduced to? A bunch of commie pinko lefty women who buy the canard that Republicans want to keep them barefoot and pregnant. Meanwhile, they worship a president who defines ALL women by their vaginas and thinks all they care about is a presidential ticket that can provide freebies that cater to their reproductive organs.

I thought this was some silly joke when I first saw it. But on closer inspection, the picture above is actually a communication by a bunch of barefoot and pregnant ObamaBot Zombie women -- or barefoot and fresh from the abortion clinic where they received their "reproductive health services" -- to American women everywhere to attempt to convince them that the most important issue in their lives should be whether or not they receive overpriced birth control free of charge from the taxpayer. Apparently these idiots are counting on everyone else to be as stupid as they are and not realize that you can get a pack of birth control pills for less than ten bucks a month at the local Wal Mart.  But forget the facts and logic, these militant Zombies want women everywhere to believe that, like Julia, the heroine of their web site, the once and fallen messiah's policies will take care of them from cradle to grave.

With real unemployment at 14+%, real inflation rampant, gas prices at record highs and double what they were when Barry took office, the national debt larger than the annual cost of all goods and services produced in this country and projected to rise past $20 trillion should we re-elect Barry and Bozo, I'm willing to bet that most women will see past this shameless pandering to their vaginas and help the men in their lives vote Barry's sorry ass out of office in a little over a month.

The Voter Fraud Season Begins

Yes, today was the beginning of the cheatin' season in Iowa -- that period weeks and weeks before the election when you can walk in to various locations -- usually surrounded by Barack Obama bumper stickers and lefty loons -- and vote:

The first day of early voting in Polk County was busier than ever for election staff.
By 4 p.m., 550 people had cast ballots at the Polk County Election Office. In 2008, 100 people voted on the first day but that number had been far eclipsed by 11 a.m.
Of those, 401 were registered Democrats, 90 were Republicans, 57 had no party affiliation and two were affiliated with other parties, said Polk County Auditor Jamie Fitzgerald.
He could not say who people had actually voted for.
After an initial two-hour rush when the polls opened at 8 a.m. that led to hour-long wait times and was largely a function of Obama campaign efforts, the office saw a steady stream of people throughout the day, Fitzgerald said.
 Original story:
The first ballots are in, and judging from the myriad of Obama stickers, buttons, signs and campaign volunteers enthusiastically trawling down the line in front of the election office, in Polk County most of the ballots so far were for President Barack Obama.
Why is this primarily a Democrat phenomenon? Because early voting it the perfect set up for voter fraud. When you can vote in every imaginable building from a frat house to a Mexican restaurant, the logistics of safely and securely getting ballots from all these locations to the county auditor's office present nearly unlimited opportunities for voter fraud. And Democrats are the kings of voter fraud -- rampant voter fraud is essential to the Democrat machine if they want to win and it's been happening for decades.
