Alaska Libertarian Party Gives Lisa Murkowski Thumbs Down

After coffee, donuts and a few tosses of the F bomb, the Alaska Libertarian Party decided Lisa Murkowski was too liberal to ever be a Libertarian. Any plans Murkowski may have had to pull a 'Charlie Crist' if the absentee ballot counting goes against her are doomed.

The Executive Committee of the Alaska Libertarian Party held an emergency meeting yesterday to discuss the contested primary results in the Republican Senate primary. All 5 board members met in an undisclosed location in northeast Anchorage to hammer out a decision as to how to move forward [...]

On Sunday morning, over coffee and donuts, the ExComm voted unanimously, 5 to 0 to deny the Senator the ballot line. There was no malice intended. ALP Chair Kohlhaas has repeatedly stated that she is a nice lady, and the ALP was flattered by the offer.

Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX) said she did not know she was another corrupt Democrat

After awarding as many as two a year Congressional Black Caucus Foundation scholarships to her family members and relatives of an aide, Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX) claims she did not know that was wrong.
"Rep. Johnson told us that she did not know the rules of our scholarships, and that once she realized she erred, she would make retribution to the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation in terms of returning the money," she said.

Now that she has been busted as another corrupt Congressional Black Caucus member, Rep. Johnson is willing to give the money back. I wonder if she will make a trip to her garage freezer to retrieve some cold cash.

In the video embedded below, Texas Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson goes on on 'Washington Watch' and explains how the Office of Congressional Ethics is treating Congressional Black Caucus members unfairly. She claims the charges are "very simple stuff and when it finishes, probably nobody will be in trouble." She must have meant simple stuff like cheating deserving students out of scholarships for the enrichment of her family.

Poll Finds New Low for Obamacare

Jay Cost of HorseRaceBlog makes a great case the Democrats current polling problem started when they rammed Obamacare down American's throats. This poll won't make Democrats feel any better about this November.

Politico reported:
A new poll shows that public support for health care reform dropped sharply in August — a dagger in Democrats’ hopes that their landmark legislation will help them in November’s midterm.

The Kaiser Health Tracking Poll has support for the bill dropping 7 percentage points in August — down to 43 percent — while opposition rose 10 points to 45 percent. That’s the weakest showing since May — and a far cry from the bump proponents had hoped to see as some of the law’s more consumer-friendly provisions kick in.

Video: Union Hires Non-Union Members to Walk in Their Picket Line

The hypocrisy of modern day unions knows no bounds. Recently, we learned of a union employee being fired for trying to organize the union staff. If that isn't shocking enough, some unions are too lazy to walk their own picket lines and they hire nonunion workers at minimum wage without benefits to do their dirty work. Let's go to the video.

Unions are all about enriching union leaders now. After all, hookers are expensive.

Rick Sanchez Makes Lame Apology for Calling Obama "Cotton Picking President"

If Rick Sanchez were a conservative, he would mostly likely be forced to resign. Of course, there aren't any conservatives left at CNN.

Partial transcript via NewsBusters:
In the middle of that conversation, at one point, I said, why can't the president of the United States seem to figure this out? After all, he is the cotton-picking president of the United States. Well, soon after I said that, I started getting some Tweets from some of you, saying, you just said 'cotton-picking president of the United States' about the first black president of the United States? Without even realizing it?

I've was just saying 'cotton picking' because it's a term that I've used because I grew up in the South. It's a point that's often used to illustrate frustration- not in any way shown to use- used to show any kind of disrespect. However, I apologize nonetheless for using it, in case it was taken by anyone as an act of disrespect. So, there you go.

Kathleen Sebelius: Americans Need Obamacare "Reeducation"

Obamacare is still unpopular. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius thinks Americans need to be reeducated. I wonder if they will round us up and put us in Obamacare reeducation camps?

ABC News
With a number of polls showing a sustained level of opposition to the Democrats’ health care reform efforts more than five months after passage, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said the Obama administration has “a lot of reeducation to do” heading into the midterms.

When the Bed Bugs Bite, Thank EPA

Bedbugs were almost unheard of in the US for decades. In 1996, EPA banned a bunch of very effective chemicals and now New York City is infested.

The Daily Caller reported:
The debate isn’t over long-banned DDT, since modern bed bugs have developed a tolerance for that chemical. But in the pre-1996 regime, experts say, bed bugs were “collateral damage” from broader and more aggressive use of now-banned pesticides like Malathion and Propoxur.

Now some health officials are clamoring to bring those chemicals back to help solve the bed bug “emergency.” Meanwhile, EPA bureaucrats have downplayed the idea and environmentalists are pushing hard against the effort, citing safety concerns.

The issue has led to a standoff between Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, a Democrat, and EPA chief Lisa Jackson, who shot down Strickland’s appeals over the issue in a tersely worded letter in June. Read more here.

Obama Claims He is Making Decisions "for the next generations,”

Brian Williams asked President Obama about the Glenn Beck rally. Not surprisingly, President Obama ignored the rally. Obama also took a swipe at polls revealing many people think he is a Muslim.
"I can't spend all my time with my birth certificate plastered on my forehead."

The surprising thing President Obama revealed was this comment.
“I’m making decisions that are not necessarily good for the nightly news and not good for the next election, but for the next generations,” he says.

This reveals much about Obama's thinking. He doesn't care what ordinary Americans or even the people who elected him think. He is a liberal elitist who sincerely believes he knows what is best for everyone else. President Obama views himself as a messiah-like figure. He will continue to do everything in his power to continue the hard left turn he has taken the country on. The damage he is doing to ordinary Americans and the Democratic Party in the short term is completely irrelevant to him.

Michelle Obama's popularity plummets after Spain trip

Michelle Obama's ritzy vacation in a $2500 a night Spanish hotel room has turned off Americans. Many are people are struggling in an economy where real unemployment may be as high as 17%. Her 50% approval rating is now below Barbara Bush's rating of 56% in 2006. At that time, her husband, President Bush was about as popular as root canal.

The NY Daily News reported:
The First Lady's approval rating has plummeted following her highly-criticized, luxurious Mediterranean vacation with her 9-year-old daughter, a new poll finds.

According to the Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll (pdf), just 50% have a positive impression of her — compared to 64% who answered favorably in a similar April 2009 poll.

Ground Zero Mosque Developer is no Saint

Sharif El-Gamal, the leading developer behind the Ground Zero mosque, has a sordid past. He has been arrested seven times, including assault and soliciting a prostitute.
Years before his latest real-estate project ignited an uproar, Sharif El-Gamal racked up at least seven run-ins with the law, including a bust for patronizing a prostitute...

...El-Gamal allegedly cursed at Vassiliev, called him the Arabic curse word "sharmouta" and punched him in the face, breaking his nose and cheekbones.

When he was arrested, El-Gamal denied he socked Vassiliev, but conceded, "[Vassiliev's] face could have run into my hand," court papers say.

Oh, and he is a tax cheat too.
Sharif El-Gamal, the leading organizer behind the mosque and community center near Ground Zero, owes $224,270.77 in back property tax on the site, city records show.

El-Gamal's company, 45 Park Place Partners, failed to pay its half-yearly bills in January and July, according to the city Finance Department.

CNN Commits Horrible Reporting Errors During Glenn Beck Rally

Check out the above screen grab. Glenn Beck is labeled as Sarah Palin and They don't even have Palin's name spelled correctly. Palin is also identified as a former Presidential candidate. She was actually John McCain's VP candidate. The liberals at CNN must have been really shaken by the fact Glenn Beck's rally drew as many as 300,000, while Al Sharpton could only scrap up around 3,000.

President Obama Steals Bush's Credit For Winning the Iraq War

President in his weekly address:
“As a candidate, I pledged to end this war. As President, that’s what I’m doing.”

The surge during the Bush administration won the war in Iraq. Senator Obama opposed the surge and claimed it would make things worse.

After the surge was underway, Senator Obama denied it was working.

Defeat is a always a stepchild and victory has many fathers. President Obama has no claim to being a father of our success in Iraq.

Video: Demo Congressman Russ Carnahan Runs Away From Ground Zero Mosque Question

St. Louis blogger, Sharp Elbows, videotaped an effort to get Democratic Congressman Russ Carnahan on record about his position on the Ground Zero mosque during a Town hall meeting with veterans in his home district. Carnanhan repeatedly ignores his constituent and finally leaves the building and heads for parking lot and his vehicle at a fast pace. I think from Caranahan's non-answer, we might safely assume he joins President Obama in supporting the Ground Zero mosque construction.

Louisiana Voters Think Bush Did a Better Job of Handling Crisis Than Obama by 54%-33%

Louisiana has face two major crisis in recent years. The first was hurricane Katrina handled by former President Bush. The second was the Gulf oil spill handled by current President Obama. A PPP poll asked likely voters who they think is better at handling crisis, Obama or Bush. 54% chose President Bush. Only 33% picked President Obama.

81% of Louisiana voters support offshore drilling.
While support has nearly returned to previous levels elsewhere, support in Louisiana has, if it were possible, also increased, to 81%, with only 9% not in favor

Anti-Obama Billboard Comparing Obama to Castro Suffers Arson Attempt

There is an anti-Obama billboard comparing President Obama to Fidel Castro in Gladewater, TX. The billboard has pictures of Obama and Castro with the word "Change" over their heads and "Vote Obama" under their portraits. Off to the right side the text reads "Coming Our Way". Someone poured gasoline at the base and started a fire. The billboard is at the top of a 30-foot-pipe and was undamaged.

KTBB AM600 reported:
GLADEWATER- Fire investigators are looking for the person who they say tried to set an Anti-Obama billboard on fire. KETK reports it happened Sunday morning on Highway 80 in Gladewater. Investigators say someone poured gasoline around the base of the 30-foot-pipe and lit it on fire. The flames, however, never touched the billboard itself.

Obama Administration Drops Prosecution of USS Cole Bombing Mastermind

Presumably, they are too busy suing Arizona for enforcing immigration law. 17 sailors were killed and dozens were wounded in the Oct. 2000 suicide attack on the USS Cole in Yemen.

WaPo reported:
The decision at least temporarily scuttles what was supposed to be the signature trial of a major al-Qaeda figure under a reformed system of military commissions. And it comes practically on the eve of the 10th anniversary of the attack, which killed 17 sailors and wounded dozens when a boat packed with explosives ripped a hole in the side of the warship in the port of Aden.

In a filing this week in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, the Justice Department said that "no charges are either pending or contemplated with respect to al-Nashiri in the near future."

NRA Dumps Harry Reid

It's about time the NRA came to their senses and quit endorsing Democrats who really don't support the second amendment. Previously, the NRA has donated to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
The NRA’s political action committee donated $2,500 to Reid last September and $1,500 in March, according to federal campaign finance records.

Here is a list of 43 anti-gun votes by Harry Reid. Why the NRA would consider supporting Reid is beyond comprehension. Many claim it was because of the carveout the NRA received in exchange for their support for the DISCLOSE ACT deal. The straw that appears to have broken the camel's back was Harry Reid's votes for Obama's liberal anti-gun SCOTUS nominees Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kegan.
The vote on Elena Kagan’s confirmation to the Court, along with the previous year’s confirmation vote on Sonia Sotomayor, are critical for the future of the Second Amendment. After careful consideration, the NRA-PVF announced today that it will not be endorsing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid for re-election in the 2010 U.S. Senate race in Nevada.

Dick Morris Predicts Democrats Will Lose 80 House Seats (video)

Last night, Dick Morris told Greta Van Susteren Democrats will be “losing 80 seats” in this year’s Midterm Elections. That would be a new record. The old record is the 74 seats that Republicans lost in 1922. Let's hope he is right.

Steve Forbes on Obama: “He Thinks He Will Change America From a Greedy Nation to a Quiet Socialist Nation"... (Video)

Steve Forbes reamed President Obama on FOX News. He told Martha McCallum,
He feels that, in terms of what he’s done, long-term it will make him a great President – put him on Mount Rushmore – change America from a greedy nation to a quiet socialist nation that knows its place in the world. So, in that sense, he’s just going to go along with it, and if the Democrats take a loss, they’re just martyrs to his revolution.”

Now, that's telling it like it is.

Charlie Crist was against Obamacare, before he was for it, before he was against it or something

The spelling of flip-flop has been changed to Charlie-Crist.

The Hill reported:
Crist told a local TV station Friday that he would have voted in favor of President Obama's healthcare proposal were he in the Senate. That was a reversal of his previous position against the healthcare law.

"I would have voted for it," Crist said
in the interview. "But I think it can be done better, I really do."

But now, Crist says he "misspoke" in that interview.
His campaign sent out a statement Friday afternoon clarifying Crist's position on the healthcare law.

Someone must have informed Crist 56% of Florida voters oppose the heath care overhaul bill.

Confirmed: American Muslims Love Obama

A massive Gallop poll of 275,000 adults has found President Obama's approval rating among American Muslims is an astounding 78%. In spite of President Obama's claim he is a Christian, we have to wonder if Muslims don't believe he is secretly one of them. Mormons had the lowest approval of President Obama.

Gallop reported:
The differences in Obama’s approval ratings across the religious groups included in this analysis have held fairly constant across time, even as Obama’s overall rating has fallen by 15 points between the first half of 2009 and the first seven months of this year. American Muslims — in the news recently with the controversy over proposed plans to build an Islamic center and mosque near ground zero in New York City — have given Obama his highest ratings in all three time periods: 86% in the first half of 2009, 83% in the second half of 2009, and 78% so far this year. Mormons have given Obama his lowest ratings across time, dropping from 43% in the first half of 2009 to 24% this year.

Liberal Media Clubbed President Bush for Playing Golf in Time of War. Obama Plays 48th Round in 19 Months.

The liberal media was severely critical of former President Bush for playing golf in a time of war. He finally gave up the game and started biking in August of 2003. The media also hammered his father George H. W. Bush for golfing and fishing in a time of war. Yesterday, President Obama played his 48th round of golf in 19 months. That doubled former President Bush's 24 rounds in the three years before he quit. Most Americans wouldn't begrudge someone with a tough job a little downtime, but the contrast in the media coverage has been astounding. If a Republican were in the White House, the war in Afghanistan was going poorly, 9.5% of Americans were unemployed and the economic recovery was stalled, the liberal mainstream media would be all over them for playing golf and taking too many vacations.

Here is an example from The Washington Post of how the media reported Bush's golf outings.

Before Golf, Bush Decries Latest Deaths In Mideast

Upcoming Holiday to Be No Vacation From Strife

By Mike Allen
Washington Post Staff Writer
Monday, August 5, 2002; Page A02

KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine, Aug. 4 -- It's a ritual when President Bush golfs: As he gets ready to tee off, reporters toss out a few questions about the news of the day from their perches on a nearby sand trap. This morning, Bush wasn't waiting. He sprang from his golf cart at 6:15 a.m. and said he was "distressed to hear about the latest suicide bombers in Israel."

Just over four hours before, as Bush slept at his parents' seaside retreat, a Palestinian suicide bomber blew up a bus in Israel, killing nine passengers.

The reporting, in the excerpt, paints President Bush as callous and nonchalant about tragedy. Of course, President Obama does have one advantage former President Bush didn't. He doesn't have to worry about questions being shouted out while he is on the golf course. He doesn't allow reporters on the golf course. That alone would have created a media storm of criticism during the Bush presidency.

Liberal Ninth Circuit Rules Government can GPS Track you Without a Warrant

THe U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit is the most liberal Federal Court in the country. They have made very scary ruling that shreds Americans Fourth Amendment rights. Let's hope this one makes it to the Supreme Court and gets overturned quickly.

Time Reported:
Government agents can sneak onto your property in the middle of the night, put a GPS device on the bottom of your car and keep track of everywhere you go. This doesn’t violate your Fourth Amendment rights, because you do not have any reasonable expectation of privacy in your own driveway – and no reasonable expectation that the government isn’t tracking your movements.

That is the bizarre – and scary – rule that now applies in California and eight other Western states. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, which covers this vast jurisdiction, recently decided the government can monitor you in this way virtually anytime it wants – with no need for a search warrant.

Democrats Running From Toxic Obama and Democratic Party (video)

Here are some amusing videos of Democrats trying to see how far they can distance themselves from President Obama, Harry Reid , Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Party.

Representative Jason Altmire (D-Pennsylvania, 4th)claims he isn't afraid to stand up to the President and voted against the health care bill.

Rep. Bobby Bright, Alabama (D) touts his votes against the Bailouts, Stimulus spending, massive government health care and President Obama's trillion dollar federal budget.

Rep. Glenn Nye, Virginia (D) voted against the health care bill because it cost too much and going against his own party voted against the Wall St. bailout.

Mike McIntyre, D-NC doesn't work for Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid and voted against Wall St bailout, auto bailout and energy tax.

VP Joe Biden on Stimulus Spending: “This is a chance to do something big, man!”

VP Joe Biden was referring to forcing America down a 'green' path through 'stimulus' spending. The truth is the "something big" the Stimulus is responsible for is running up debt for our grandchildren.

Time reported:
…But in the words of Vice President Joe Biden, Obama’s effusive Recovery Act point man, “Now the fun stuff starts!” The “fun stuff,” about one-sixth of the total cost, is an all-out effort to exploit the crisis to make green energy, green building and green transportation real; launch green manufacturing industries; computerize a pen-and-paper health system; promote data-driven school reforms; and ramp up the research of the future. “This is a chance to do something big, man!” Biden said during a 90-minute interview with TIME.

Fear Spreads Among Democrats as Economy and Polling Portend Disaster This November

Unemployment remains high and Republicans have a record edge in the Generic Congressional Ballot. Almost as many voters believe the 'Stimulus' hurt the economy as believe it helped. Voter turnout yesterday indicates the Republican base is mush more 'fired up' than the Democratic base. Top Democrats are now coming to grips with the tidal wave of voter anger headed their way this November.

Politico reported:
Top Democrats are growing markedly more pessimistic about holding the House, privately conceding that the summertime economic and political recovery they were banking on will not likely materialize by Election Day.

In conversations with more than two dozen party insiders, most of whom requested anonymity to speak candidly about the state of play, Democrats in and out of Washington say they are increasingly alarmed about the economic and polling data they have seen in recent weeks.

They no longer believe the jobs and housing markets will recover – or that anything resembling the White House’s promise of a “recovery summer” is under way.

MSNBC's Schultz Compares Tea Party Movement to Nazi 'Brown Shirts' (video)

Painting the Tea Party as racist just isn't enough for the left anymore. Liberal talker MSNBC's Ed Schultz is comparing the Tea Party movement to Nazi 'Brown Shirts' in the 1930's.

From NewsBusters:
“Folks, this is what the Brown Shirts did in the 1930s in Germany,” Schultz said. “They used to target businesses, target people, target families, list names, attack their businesses. This isn’t about protesting. This sets the table for intimidation and harassment.”

Tea Party Group Forced to Deal With Multiple Death Threats

It looks like the 'hopey-changey' crowd has several psychos in their midst.

One of Washington’s principal supporters of the Tea Party movement, former GOP Majority Leader Dick Armey’s FreedomWorks, has been receiving death threats and profanity-laced phone calls as it gets involved in the fall elections. The number and intensity have reached such heights that the organization is leaving its downtown location near the FBI and moving to a high-security building near the U.S. Capitol.

“FreedomWorks and Dick Armey receive dozens of threatening and harassing calls and E-mails each day.

Nate Silver Predicts Democrats to Lose 6 or 7 Senate Seats

The latest FiveThirtyEight forecasting model has Democrats losing 66.5 seats in the Senate this fall.
On average, over the model’s 100,000 simulation runs, the Democrats are projected to lose a net of six and a half Senate seats, which would leave them with 52 or 53 senators.

The model also predicts there is a 20% chance of Democrats losing control of the Senate to Republicans.
The Democratic majority is in increasing jeopardy in the Senate, according to the latest FiveThirtyEight forecasting model. The Democrats now have an approximately 20 percent chance of losing 10 or more seats in the Senate...

Nate Silver is an American statistician whose work first appeared on Daily Kos. That should tell you his political affiliation. However, he has a good record of accuracy.

President Obama's Backdoor Amnesty Program Has Begun

An Obama administration memo suggesting ways to change the rules to give as many illegal immigrants amnesty as possible was leaked in late July. Now, we find out the DHS is dismissing thousands of pending illegal immigrant cases instead of pressing for deportation. President Obama has no respect for the law.

The Houston Chronicle reported:
The Department of Homeland Security is systematically reviewing thousands of pending immigration cases and moving to dismiss those filed against suspected illegal immigrants who have no serious criminal records, according to several sources familiar with the efforts.

Culling the immigration court system dockets of noncriminals started in earnest in Houston about a month ago and has stunned local immigration attorneys, who have reported coming to court anticipating clients’ deportations only to learn that the government was dismissing their cases.

It has come to this: Harry Reid is Sneaking Around in Nevada (video)

Presumably, Harry Reid is trying to avoid the media and protesters. This is a sad day for incumbent Senator and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid when the second most powerful Democrat in the nation feels the need to sneak into town for a meeting. He should have tried voting with his constituents in Nevada instead of President Obama and Nancy Pelosi.

The Strange Media Silence Over Russ Carnahan Office Firebombing

On August 17, at about 2:00 AM, Democratic Senator Russ Carnahan's office was firebombed; causing minor damage. A suspect was arrested and released. Other than a report here by St. Louis Today, there wasn't much in the way of national news coverage. It is very strange for the national media to ignore a story this juicy in an election year. We can never forget the feeding frenzy by the liberal media when Russ Carnahan's staff falsely claimed a coffin was left on his front lawn by Tea Party protesters. Why didn't the mainstream media track down the culprit and hang a Tea Party sign around his neck? The instant loss of interest by the liberal mainstream media can be attributed to one thing. The alleged criminal is one of their own. The man police arrested, suspect Chris Powers, was a Carnahan campaign worker with a beef about his pay.

He can be seen harassing Tea Party protesters in this 2009 video. He is the one who identifies himself as a Carnahan staffer.

According to Dana Loesch, he is also a left-wing blogger who identifies himself as a former journalist
He’s said to also blog anonymously at Talking Points Memo and described himself as a former journalist. Sources say that Powers has allegedly denied the charges and that the FBI were/are involved. I really hope, for Powers’ sake, that it really is as a listener suggested: just a case of a Carnahan staffer having a bong mishap.

Better luck next time liberal mainstream media.

Video: Marco Rubio Victory Speech

Marco Rubio handily won the GOP nomination for Florida's U.S. Senate seat yesterday after former RINO, Governor Charlie Crist, dropped out and announced he was running as an Independent. Kendrick B. Meek crushed his primary opponent, Jeff Greene, in the Democratic primary. This sets the stage for a three way race between Rubio, Meek and Crist. Here is part of Rubio's victory speech. He clearly paints himself as the outsider in the race who will bring real change to Washington.

The Carbon Market Scam

Cap and Trade has two major components. First the government sets limits for carbon emissions. The, they set up a complicated carbon trading market allowing companies who reduce emissions to sell their carbon emission allotment to others. Several other countries, who are signatories to the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, are already participating in this scheme under the auspices of the U.N.'s Clean Development Mechanism. President Obama has proposed a similar system for the U.S. Allegedly, China has figured out a way to scam the program.
An obscure U.N. board that oversees a $2.7 billion market intended to cut heat-trapping gases has agreed to take steps that could lead to it eventually reining in what European and U.S. environmentalists are calling a huge scam.

At a meeting this week that ended Friday, the executive board of the U.N.'s Clean Development Mechanism said that five chemical plants in China would no longer qualify for funding as so-called carbon offset credits until the environmentalists' claims can be further investigated.

Five plants in China are producing an ozone friendly chemical and getting paid for that under the U.N.'s ozone treaty. Unfortunately, production of this ozone friendly chemical creates a byproduct that is a very powerful climate-warming gas. These companies get $100,000 a ton to destroy this chemical.
The chemical makers are paid as much as $100,000 or more for every ton they destroy of a potent greenhouse gas, HFC-23. The price for destroying it is based on its being 11,700 times more powerful as a climate-warming gas than carbon dioxide.

The solution to generating more profits at these companies is simple. They overproduce the ozone friendly chemical in order to get paid for destroying the byproduct. This is typical of what happens when governments excessively meddle into private markets. They change in an unexpected way.

A recent Pew poll found 18% of Americans believe President Obama is a Muslim. A Pew poll taken at the end of last year found 19% of Democrats believe in the 'evil eye' and 36% believe they are in touch with the dead. Who do you think has the best case?

On the other hand, Democrats can cite President Obama as proof of the 'evil eye.'

Top NY Democrat Bails On Ground Zero Mosque

New York State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver has broke his silence and come out in favor of moving the Ground Zero mosque to a new location.

The NY Post reported:
A powerful state politician joined with Gov. David Paterson on Tuesday in suggesting that Islamic leaders should move a proposed Islamic center and mosque farther from ground zero, saying the organizers should be more sensitive to opponents.

The Cordoba Initiative has the right to build the center at a building two blocks from Ground Zero but should be open to compromise, said New York Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, who represents the lower Manhattan district.

Confirmed: Men Do Not Like Obama

Marine General James Conway: Obama giving "sustenance" to Taliban

Marine General James Conway claims President Obama is giving our enemy 'sustenance' by setting a deadline for starting withdrawal. The Taliban believe they only have to hold out until that date.

Via Fox Nation: (Emphasis mine)
The top U.S. Marine general in Afghanistan said President Barack Obama’s announced July 2011 deadline to start withdrawing troops from the country had given “sustenance” to the Taliban.

“We know the president was talking to several audiences at the same time when he made his comments on July 2011,” Gen. James Conway told reporters on Tuesday. “In some ways, we think right now it’s probably giving our enemy sustenance….In fact, we’ve intercepted communications that say, ‘Hey, you know, we only have to hold out for so long.’”

Obama Apologizes to U.N. Human Rights Council for U.S. Shortcomings

President Obama is in apology mode again. This time he is apologizing to the U.N. Human Rights Council. Obama told the council, "America's human rights record is less than perfect." The U.N. Human Rights Council was formed in 2006 and spends much of their time bashing Israel. It has 47 member countries who are elected by the U.N. Some of the notable human rights champions currently serving on the council are Libya, Cuba, Saudi Arabia and China.

AP reported:
The Obama administration has told the United Nations that America's human rights record is less than perfect...

In its first-ever report to the U.N. Human Rights Council on conditions in the United States, the State Department said some minorities are still victims of discrimination.

Former President Bush shunned the U.N. Human Rights Council for their mind-exploding hypocrisy and refused to issue a report.

Video: Chris Matthews accuses Mitch McConnell of playing "Birther politics."

Tingles has gone completely insane. He accused Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of playing "Birther politics" and accused Republicans of trying to "de-Americanize the President." What set him off on this rant? He took offense to McConnell saying "I take him at his word" in response to President Obama's claim he is a christian.

Note to Tingles: It is President Obama who is de-Americanizing Obama in the eyes of the American people.

Pro-GZM supporters call opponents racists and bigots, make anti-semantic remarks and attack a cameraman

The hypocrisy of the left is astounding. Protesters calling for tolerance and religious freedom make anti-semantic remarks and attack a cameraman who didn't share their views. This is a difficult video to watch. It is painful to see Americans act in this manner. Warning: Strong language in video.

President Obama has unleashed a GZM Nightmare on Democrats

President Obama is guilty of an unforced error in his public support for building a Mosque at Ground Zero. He wasn't cornered by a hostile reporter. Instead, he volunteered the comment at a Ramadan event while reading prepared remarks from his teleprompter. This rocketed the issue to the forefront of the mainstream media and has forced Democrats to take a stance on an issue they were avoiding like the plague. Voter attention has dramatically picked up as news about the Mosque went mainstream. The GZM has become a hot button issue in elections across the country.

Rasmussen reported:

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 85% of U.S. voters say they are now following news stories about the mosque planned near Ground Zero. That’s a 34-point jump from a month ago...

Opposition to the Mosque is also increasing as voters learn more.
Now 62% oppose the building of a mosque near where the World Trade Center stood in Lower Manhattan, compared to 54% in the previous survey.

Thanks, President Obama!

Dick Durbin Accuses Harry Reid of Betraying Constitution?

Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin has taken a position of support for the Ground Zero Mosque. Durbin called out Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin for dividing America with fear and betraying the Constitution. I guess he forgot his Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is also opposed to the GZM. Of course, it is a little late to accuse Reid of betraying the Constitution. He already did that when he helped ram Obamacare down American's throats.

The Hill reported:
Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (Ill.) said Sunday that those who are opposed to the mosque are trying to divide the country with fear and hate.

“The mayor of New York City, Michael Bloomberg, has given his assent to this center and I support his decision,” Durbin said Sunday. “The politicians like Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin who try to divide America with fear and hate over this issue betray the diversity which makes our nation great and the Constitution which they profess to honor.Read more here.

Ground Zero Mosque Imam: ..."United States has more Muslim blood on its hands than al-Qaeda"... (video)

Ground Zero Mosque Imam, Feisal Abdul Rauf, claimed in 2005 the West and the United States had more blood on their hands than al-Qaeda. Oh, and he drops the N-Word bomb too. So much for promoting tolerance.

From the video:
We tend to forget, in the West, that the United States has more Muslim blood on its hands than al-Qaeda has on its hands of innocent non-Muslims. You may remember that the US lead sanction against Iraq lead to the death of over half a million Iraqi children. The West needs to begin to see themselves through the eyes of the Arab and Muslim world, and when you do you will see the predicament that exists within the Muslim community.”

Warning: Feisal Abdul Rauf uses the N-Word at the about the 4:10 mark of the video.

Irony: Man Robs Congressional Candidate.

Congress has been robbing Americans for generations. Now, a man has turned the tables and robbed a Congressional candidate in Miami.

Great Roy Blunt Video Ad: Who's Robin Carnahan Kidding?

Democrats are running against Bush this November. That is a questionable l=plan since Bush has been out of office for 18 months.

Roy Blunt takes advantage of that and hangs the liberal Obama agenda around Robin Carnahan's neck in this video ad.

Shameful: Code Pink Tells Gold Star Mom “Your Son Deserved to Die in Iraq"

Add another chapter to the shameful history of Code Pink.

Big Peace
…Numerous times they told me they support the troops but not the war, yet over and over when I asked if they had sent care packages, phone cards, written letters, or helped the families left behind in anyway, they conveniently couldn’t remember anything they had done. Yet they had a successful fundraiser to send $600,000.00 to our enemies in Iraq? Yet Jodie Evans and her Code Pink degenerates taunted me and made light of my son’s sacrifice telling me, “Your son deserved to die in Iraq if he was stupid enough to go over there.” It took every ounce of reserve in my body to not level these idiots to the ground...
