Obama Blames Bush For Economy During Unveiling of Bush’s Presidential Portrait


Via Weekly Standard:
At the unveiling of former President George W. Bush’s official portrait at the White House this afternoon, President Barack Obama joined his predecessor and their wives in delivering brief (and at times nice, cordial, and funny) remarks. But there was a seemingly out of place moment during the ceremony when Obama seemed to veer into reiterating his frequent trope that he inherited a bad economy from Bush.

“The months before I took the oath of office were a chaotic time,” Obama said, after explaining that the president’s job is isolating, and that he and Bush have a connection since so few have held the job. “We knew our economy was in trouble, our fellow Americans were in pain, but we wouldn’t know until later just how breathtaking the financial crisis had been.”

Obama supports the real war on women: Sex-selection abortions

 How can you be against gender-based discrimination and for gender-based abortion?

Via CNS:
The White House is opposed to a bill that was proposed in the House that would ban sex-selection abortions.
In defending President Obama’s opposition to the bill, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said it would force abortionists into the position of trying to determine the “motivations” behind a “very personal” decision.
During the White House press briefing Wednesday, Fox News reporter Ed Henry asked, “since the president has been outspoken about being against gender-based discrimination, how can you allow gender-based abortion?”

Heroes: Bipartisan group of lawmakers oppose efforts to give the United Nations more control over the Internet

If the Obama administration supports more U.N. control over the Internet, they are idiots. Now I am worried...

Via The Hill:
A bipartisan group of lawmakers on the House Energy and Commerce Committee introduced a resolution on Wednesday urging the Obama administration to oppose efforts to give the United Nations more control over the Internet.

Proposals to give the UN’s International Telecommunication Union (ITU) more control over the governance of the Internet could come up at a conference in Dubai in December. The move is backed by China, Russia, Brazil, India and other UN members, but is opposed by lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, as well as the Obama administration.

The proposals would give the UN more control over cybersecurity, data privacy, technical standards and the Web’s address system. They would also allow foreign, government-owned Internet providers to charge extra for international traffic and allow for more price controls.

Horrifying Report: Gitmo Prisoners Were Tortured By Being Forced To Listen To Sesame Street Music

How did they stand the agony?

Via HuffPo:
In 2008, reports surfaced that detainees at Guantanamo Bay had been tortured by songs such as Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” and Drowning Pool’s “Bodies.”

Now, a new documentary from Al Jazeera shows that detainees may also have been subjected to musical torture of a softer variety.

According to the report, prisoners at the U.S. detention camp at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base were forced to wear headphones blasting music from Sesame Street on repeat for hours or days on end.

Christopher Cerf, the award-winning composer of Sesame Street, was stunned to learn how his music was being exploited.

“My first reaction was this just can’t possibly be true,” he told Al Jazeera. “. . .Of course I didn’t really like the idea that I was helping break down prisoners, but it was much worse when I heard later that they were actually using the music in Guantanamo to actually do deep, long-term interrogations and obviously to inflict enough pain on prisoners so they would talk.”

Nanny State Alert: NYC Mayor Bloomberg is coming for your sugary drinks

When they banned smoking, you were silent because you don't smoke. When they took away your kids peanut butter sandwich you were silent because you thought is was the civic thing to do. Now they are coming for your sugary drinks. Soon, they will come for something you care about.
(NY1) — Mayor Michael Bloomberg is on the verge of taking serious aim at sugary drinks, as he wants to ban such beverages larger than 16 fluid ounces from nearly all dining establishments in the city.

The city’s proposed ban on sugary drinks would apply to service in nearly all restaurants, movie theaters and street food carts and it is part of a Health Department aim to reduce obesity.

The ban, which if approved would be the first of its kind in the nation, would take affect in March.
Diet sodas, fruit juices, dairy-based beverages like milkshakes and alcohol would be exempt from the ban and it would not affect sales in supermarkets or bodegas.

However, corner stores that are called “food service establishments” by the city and display Health Department letter grades on their food service will have to follow the ban.

Ex-Dem Gov of NY Patterson suggests Obama may be getting away with treason

Obama threw Patterson under the bus in 209. Payback is hell.

Democrat personality David Paterson, former governor of New York and now a talk-radio host on WOR in New York City, has suggested Barack Obama could be ineligible for the Oval Office and “got away” with it.
And Paterson compared Obama’s actions to those of Richard Nixon, which he likened to treason.

On his show yesterday, he was asserting, along with NBC Chief White House Correspondent Chuck Todd, that GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney should have distanced himself more from developer Donald Trump and his doubts about Obama’s eligibility.

“Even if he wasn’t born in the United States at this point,” Paterson said. “It’s kind of like he got away with it.”

He continued, “A lot of people get away with a lot of things.”

Paterson compared Obama’s actions to those of President Richard Nixon.

“We learned later that Nixon spied on Johnson’s Paris peace talks,” Paterson said. “That was actually an act of … uh … I mean it was against the interests of the U.S. government. You’ve got to say that before you would say it’s treason. But he got away with it. Decided it wasn’t a good thing to bring up at that particular time. Not only did he get away with it, he won the election.” Keep on reading...

Nanny State Alert: Demo Sen. Chuck Schumer is going after your grill brush

Why are liberals obsessed with controlling everything? They must have a lot of time on their hands. It's not like unemployment isn't over 8% and Iran is trying to build a nuke. Oh. wait a minute...
(The Hill) — Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has called on the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to review whether metal grill brushes are safe for consumer use, after reports that some metal bristles broke off the brush and were swallowed, sending two men to the hospital.
“Metal bristles are one topping no one wants on their burger this holiday season,” Schumer said Tuesday. “Grilling season should be a great time for the whole family, not a time to be worried about an emergency visit to the hospital.”
Schumer said men from New Jersey and Washington State were recently hospitalized after swallowing metal bristles that fell off their grill brushes. He said that reports indicate that similar incidents occurred nearly a dozen times over the last three years.
In a Monday letter to both agencies, Schumer called on both agencies to review the safety of these products, and to consider a product recall if necessary.

The progressives who attended Congressman Allen West’s town hall meeting managed to drop some choice questions on the good Congressman. One of the questions was about an alleged Article 15 hearing that he supposedly received in the Army- never mind the fact that West never received an Article 15 hearing before leaving the Army- West left the military with full honors and his pension.

Obama may be the first Nobel Peace Prize winner to keep a secret 'kill list' in his office

President Obama personally oversees a secret suspected terrorist kill list. He is the judge and jury. The execution is carried out by drones. Can you imagine the liberal outrage if George W. Bush had done this?

AFP via Yahoo:
US President Barack Obama has personally overseen a top-secret process for determining which Al-Qaeda suspects should be placed on a "kill list," the New York Times reported Tuesday.

The Times, citing dozens of top officials and former advisers, said the administration had developed what it termed the "kill list" as part of a stepped-up drone war against Al-Qaeda and its affiliates in Pakistan and Yemen.

"He is determined that he will make these decisions about how far and wide these operations will go," it quoted National Security Adviser Thomas Donilon as saying.

"His view is that he's responsible for the position of the United States in the world... He's determined to keep the tether pretty short."

LA Times helps cover for Obama hiding his college transcripts

It is shameful that the mainstream media never vetted President Obama in 2008. Even more shameful, they are ridiculing those who want to vet Obama in 2012.
(LA Times) — Now that the issue of the president’s birth certificate has been laid to rest (mostly), some conservatives are turning their attention to a new obsession: Barack Obama’s college transcripts.

Last week, a website that already had offered a $10,000 reward for Obama’s transcripts from Occidental College, Columbia University and Harvard Law School, increased the bounty to $20,000.

About a year ago, Donald Trump, among the highest-profile “birthers,” helped get the mini-movement started. After the president released his long-form birth certificate, Trump abruptly changed subjects:

“The word is, according to what I’ve read,” said Trump, “that he was a terrible student when he went to Occidental. He then gets into Columbia; he then gets to Harvard. . . . How do you get into Harvard if you’re not a good student? Now maybe that’s right or maybe it’s wrong, but I don’t know why he doesn’t release his records.”

What do these “transcripters” (if we may coin a phrase) hope to prove?

“We’re not convinced that Barack is as smart as you media elitists keep insisting he is,” says The Trenches, the website that posted the reward. . . .
 That rationale may strike some as a little flimsy, given that Obama was president of the Harvard Law Review, taught constitutional law, has two bestselling books to his credit and is, at the moment, leader of the free world.
Keep on reading...
The L.A. Times fails to address any reason Obama would refuse to release his college transcripts. If he is the super genius they allege, what is the problem?  They also say college records are private like tax returns. However, Obama has released some tax returns. There is no reason he can not release his college records.

Iran is plotting to kill our diplomats?

Obama may have to write another sternly worded letter...

Via WaPO:
A plot to kill Americans had been uncovered, the message read, and embassy officials were on the target list... 
The plot had two strands, U.S. officials learned, one involving snipers with silencer-equipped rifles and the other a car bomb, apparently intended to kill embassy employees or members of their families.
Both strands could be traced back to the same place, the officials were told: Azerbaijan’s southern neighbor, Iran...
But U.S. and Middle Eastern officials now see the attempts as part of a broader campaign by Iran-linked operatives to kill foreign diplomats in at least seven countries over a span of 13 months. The targets have included two Saudi officials, a half-dozen Israelis and — in the Azerbaijan case — several Americans, the officials say.

Ouch! Gallop Finds Romney Holds 28-Point Lead Over Obama Among Male Veterans

Veterans have a high standard of judgement for the Commander-in Chief. Obama fails to meet that standard.

Via The Hill:
A new Gallup poll released on Memorial Day shows male veterans breaking strongly for Mitt Romney over President Obama.
The presumptive GOP nominee receives support from 58 percent of veteran registered voters surveyed to Obama’s 34 percent. Among non-veterans though, Obama holds a four point edge, with 48 percent to Romney’s 44.
Gallup says veterans make up 13 percent of the U.S. population.
The breakdown of the veteran vote also mirrors the gender gap seen among all voters and male voters are seen giving Romney a solid block of support. Romney has the backing of 60 percent of male veterans to Obama’s 32.

Has Paul Krugman's cheese finally slipped completely off his cracker?

Many believe Liberalism is a Mental Disorder. Paul Krugman is now advocating for a fake alien invasion to force more government spending on liberal projects.
PAUL KRUGMAN, NEW YORK TIMES: This is hard to get people to do, much better, obviously, to build bridges and roads and healthcare clinics and schools. But my proposed, I actually have a serious proposal which is that we have to get a bunch of scientists to tell us that we’re facing a threatened alien invasion, and in order to be prepared for that alien invasion we have to do things like build high-speed rail. And the, once we’ve recovered, we can say, “Look, there were no aliens.”
But look, I mean, whatever it takes because right now we need somebody to spend, and that somebody has to be the U.S. government.

Black Clergy on Obama's Gay Marriage Flip-Flop" "...a declaration of political war against the venerable institution of marriage.”

Has Obama demotivated his most loyal base?

Via Daily Caller:

Bishop Harry Jackson, senior pastor at Hope Christian Church, is leading a coalition of 176 religious leaders against President Barack Obama’s declared support for gay marriage and the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act.
“We want to know whether he is going to use the bully pulpit of the presidential office to absolutely erase the image of biblical marriage from the face of the earth,” said Jackson at the Capitol on May 24.
“Voters need to know whether they have a friend or an assent, an enemy to an institution that God has ordained,” he added. “Some of us have taken his statements as a declaration of political war against the venerable institution of marriage.”
“In the African-American community, many people are saying they made him do that, we don’t understand why he did that,” said Jackson. “We don’t believe that really was the president’s intent. Others have given high fives in the backroom saying, ‘he got paid.’ We don’t really know what the intent of the president is except that we know that is not just an isolated incident. Some further action will follow.”

McJobless: Employed high schoolers at 20 year low

Thanks, President Obama.

Via The Washington Times:
Did somebody say McJobless?

The American job market is no place for students as the number of employed high schoolers has hit its lowest level in more than 20 years, according to new figures from the National Center for Education Statistics.

In 1990, 32 percent of high school students held jobs, versus just 16 percent now. Blame their elders.

Sectors that traditionally have offered teens their first paying gig — fast-food chains, movie theaters, malls and big-box retailers — have now become the last resorts for out-of-work college graduates or older Americans forced back into the labor force out of sheer financial necessity. The resulting squeeze has left students on the outside looking in. Keep on reading...

IAEA finds traces of highly enriched uranium at an Iranian underground bunker

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's dream of nuking Israel is getting closer.
VIENNA – Inspectors have located radioactive traces at an Iranian underground bunker, the U.N. atomic agency said Friday -- a finding that could mean Iran has moved closer to reaching the uranium threshold needed to arm nuclear missiles.

In a report obtained by The Associated Press, the International Atomic Energy Agency said it was asking Tehran for a full explanation. But the report was careful to avoid any suggestion that Iran was intentionally increasing the level of its uranium enrichment, noting that Tehran said a technical glitch was responsible.

Analysts as well as diplomats who had told the AP of the existence of the traces before publication of the confidential report also said the higher-enriched material could have been a mishap involving centrifuges over-performing as technicians adjusted their output rather than a dangerous step toward building a bomb.

Forty-nine percent of business owners support Mitt Romney; Obama gets only 32 percent

32 percent of small business owners are planning on voting for Obama? Are they insane?

Via HuffPo:

Small-business owners are leaning right leading up to the U.S. presidential election. Forty-nine percent of business owners plan to vote for presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney, while 32 percent of respondents say they’ll support President Obama, according to a report released this week by Manta.

In Manta’s last poll in January, the president was the clear winner against the Republican field as a whole, but received just 34 percent of the total vote. Now, with Romney emerging as the GOP favorite, Obama appears to face a challenge among business owners — although Romney is yet to earn support from all the 61 percent of small-business owners who planned to back a Republican in January.
In the eight swing states shaping up to be the central election battleground, small businesses favor Romney even more, Manta found. Of the small-business owners surveyed in those states, 53 percent said they’ll vote for Romney, while 32 percent said they will choose Obama.

Pena is a former mayor of Denver in swing-state Colorado, a former cabinet member for President Bill Clinton and one of 35 “national co-chairs “ of the president’s 2012 campaign.

Latest Global Warming Scare: Climate Change Will Kill 150,000 in the Washington-Baltimore Corridor by 2099

So far the alarmists are batting zero on their predictions. Anyone want to make a bet on this one?

Via Washington Secrets:
If you go outside on hot summer days, prepare to feel sick — or die. A new global warming report claims that temperatures will rise up to 11 degrees over this century, killing an additional 150,000 or more Americans, and nearly 6,000 a year in the Washington-Baltimore corridor by 2099.
First to fall, according to a shocking report titled “Killer Summer Heat” from the National Resources Defense Council, will be the elderly, kids and the poor. And with more Baby Boomers heading into their Golden Years, they will likely be part of the death boom, if the alarmist projection comes true.
The report reviewed by Secrets is based on new analysis of the historical relationships between heat, weather conditions, and mortality for 40 cities. Those elements were then factored into projections that temperatures could rise 4 degrees-11 degrees.
“Our findings indicate that rising temperatures driven by unabated climate change will increase the number of life-threatening excessive heat events, resulting in thousands of additional heat-related deaths each year, with a cumulative toll of approximately 33,000 additional heat-related deaths by midcentury in these (40) cities, and more than 150,000 additional heat-related deaths by the century’s end,” said the report.

There was a woman in Iowa who shared her story of financial struggles, and he gave her an answer right out of an economic textbook. He said, “Our productivity equals our income.” And the notion was that somehow the reason people can’t pay their bills is because they’re not working hard enough. If they got more productive, suddenly their incomes would go up. Well, those of us who’ve spent time in the real world — (laughter) — know that the problem isn’t that the American people aren’t productive enough — you’ve been working harder than ever.

Muslim U.S. soldier accused of planning to bomb Fort Hood troops was motivated by his Muslim religion

This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who has been paying close attention the last few years. Liberals will undoubtedly claim he is only a deranged individual.
WACO, Texas (AP) — A Muslim U.S. soldier accused of planning to bomb Fort Hood troops says he wasn’t seeking vengeance but justice for people in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to a recording played at his federal trial Wednesday.
Army Pfc. Naser Jason Abdo is heard telling his mother during a recorded jail visit that “their suffering is my suffering.”
Abdo, 22, is accused of planning to detonate a bomb inside a Killeen restaurant frequented by troops from the nearby Texas Army post and then shoot any survivors.
He faces up to life in federal prison if convicted of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and five other charges. He was AWOL from Fort Campbell, Ky., when he was arrested last July at a motel in Killeen, a city about 150 miles southwest of Dallas.
Abdo is heard telling his mother that “it’s all true” and “the reason is religion. There is no other reason.” He says what he did was selfless because he was trying to avenge the United States’ wrongful treatment of people he considers his family, and that he used every resource he had “to make things as right as possible.”
“I’ll be all right,” he is heard saying. “I made this decision.”

After running up $5 trillion in new debt, Obama claims, “I’m running to pay down our debt ..."

Obama doesn't think he is a big spender because $5 trillion isn't a lot of money to him.
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — At a fundraiser for his re-election campaign in Denver tonight, President Obama set out to upend conventional Republican wisdom that his administration has been defined by excessive government spending.
“I’m running to pay down our debt in a way that’s balanced and responsible. After inheriting a $1 trillion deficit, I signed $2 trillion of spending cuts into law,” he told a crowd of donors at the Hyatt Regency. “My opponent won’t admit it, but it’s starting to appear in places, like real liberal outlets, like the Wall Street Journal: Since I’ve been president, federal spending has risen at the lowest pace  in nearly 60 years. Think about that.”
Obama was referring to an analysis released this week by Rex Nutting, a reporter for CBS MarketWatch who is also affiliated with the Wall Street Journal. Nutting concluded that Obama has presided over the slowest growth in federal spending in decades.
“I just point out it always goes up least under Democratic presidents. This other side, I don’t know how they’ve been bamboozling folks into thinking that they are the responsible, fiscally-disciplined party. They run up these wild debts and then when we take over, we’ve got to clean it up.
The Romney campaign noted that more than $5 trillion has been added to the debt during Obama’s first term, though in 2008 Obama called the $4 trillion added under Bush “unpatriotic.”
The Republican National Committee pointed out that while growth of spending and debt may have slowed, Obama has overseen the three largest deficits in U.S. history.  (They also pass along fact-checker Politifact’s 2011 designation of Obama as the “undisputed debt king” of the last five presidents.)

MSNBC is now ignoring the Trayvon Martin

The evidence isn't going their way...

Via Mediaite:
In March and April, MSNBC’s primetime hosts ran with nearly wall-to-wall coverage of the killing of Florida teen Trayvon Martin. They regularly suggested that the lack of national interest in the case was worthy of outrage. Last week, when an avalanche of new evidence favorable to George Zimmerman came to light, MSNBC’s primetime lineup didn’t just bury the story, they didn’t mention Martin or Zimmerman once the week that news broke according to media monitoring service TV Eyes.
On May 15, ABC’s World News broke new information that showed a more nuanced picture of how the altercation between Zimmerman and Martin unfolded. Their documents describe Zimmerman as having received “two black eyes” as well as a “broken nose.” They also outlined how Zimmerman was offered but refused hospitalization on the night of the incident.
MSNBC’s 8 p.m. anchor Ed Schultz led with the news that J.P. Morgan chairman Jamie Dimonwould retain his chairmanship. “The big bank casino is still open and Republicans want to keep it that way,” said Schultz.

WaPo: Conservative white Democrats who don't vote for Obama in primary are racist

Keep on and they will be Republicans by November...

Via WaPo:
That President Obama lost roughly 40 percent of the vote in Democratic primaries in Arkansas, Kentuckyand West Virginia over the last two weeks has drawn massive national headlines.

Those headlines have drawn a collective eyeroll from Democrats — and many others who closely follow national politics — who ascribe the underperformance by the incumbent to a very simple thing: racism.

No, none of these Democrats are willing to put their name to that allegation — either generally or for this story. But, it is, without question the prevalent viewpoint they hold privately.

They argue that conservative white Democrats — particularly those in the South and Appalachia — don’t want to vote for an African American for president and, therefore, are willing to cast a ballot for almost anyone else up to and including an incarcerated felon.

Only 40% of swing state registered voters view Biden favorably

Biden is not an asset for Obama in swing states. Will he play the Hilary card?

In the 12 swing states likely to determine the outcome of the presidential election, only 40% of registered voters view Biden favorably, while 54% view him unfavorably. These numbers are worse than President Obama’s who is seen favorably by 50% of registered voters in those same states and unfavorably by 49%.
The 12 swing states in the poll are Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin. These states are all considered too close to call for the November election.
Independents are also down on the VP, with 50% saying they view him unfavorably and 35% holding a favorable view. The survey found the same pattern with voters who are not strongly committed to any candidate, with 52% viewing Biden unfavorably and only 33% holding a favorable view.

Washington Post/ABC News poll: Only 16 percent of adult respondents say they are better off today than they were four years ago

This isn't a record I would want to run on...

Via Washington Examiner:
Americans are nearly twice as likely to say they’ve gotten financially worse off as better off since Obama became president, according to a new Washington Post/ABC News poll.
Only 16 percent of adult respondents say they are better off today then they were four years ago, while 30 percent say they are not as well off. Fifty-three say they are about the same. When ABC News/Washington Post asked the same question in June of 1992, 19 percent of Americans said they were better off under President George H.W. Bush compared to 32 percent who said they were worse off. Bush went on to lose to President Clinton that November.

Rasmussen: 40% now think George Zimmerman acted in self-defense

The other 60% aren't paying attention to the evidence. It all supports Zimmerman's version of the events.
(Rasmussen) — As evidence continues to emerge from the shooting death of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin, Americans are becoming more convinced that his killer acted in self-defense and that the legal system will come to that conclusion.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 24% of American Adults still believe the man who shot Martin should be found guilty of murder. But that’s down from 33% in late March when the case first began to draw national headlines and 30% in early April.
Forty percent (40%) now think George Zimmerman, who has been charged with second degree murder in the Martin shooting, acted in self-defense. That’s up 25 points from 15% in March and up 16 points from 24% last month. Thirty-six percent (36%) remain undecided, compared to 55% two months ago.

Surprise: One third of U. K. divorce filings last year contained the word Facebook

This makes me happy I am not on Facebook.
More than a third of divorce filings last year contained the word Facebook, according to a U.K. survey by Divorce Online, a  legal services firm. And over 80% of U.S. divorce attorneys say they’ve seen a rise in the number of cases using social networking, according to the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. “I see Facebook issues breaking up marriages all the time,” says Gary Traystman, a divorce attorney in New London, Conn. Of the 15 cases he handles per year where computer history, texts and emails are admitted as evidence, 60% exclusively involve Facebook.

“Affairs happen with a lightning speed on Facebook,” says K. Jason Krafsky, who authored the book “Facebook and Your Marriage” with his wife Kelli. In the real world, he says, office romances and out-of-town trysts can take months or even years to develop. “On Facebook,” he says, “they happen in just a few clicks.”

Leading candidate in Egypt’s presidential race is a "longtime Muslim Brother" and a "9/11 Truther"

Welcome to the aftermath of Arab Spring...
(Washington Times) — An Islamist who believes that the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States were an American conspiracy is the front-runner in Egypt’s presidential race, a new poll shows.

Abdel-Moneim Abolfotoh, formerly a leading figure in the Muslim Brotherhood, led the field of 13 candidates with 32 percent of the vote in a survey released Monday by the Washington-based Brookings Institution.
Mr. Abolfotoh expressed his views on the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon in an interview last year with Egypt scholar Eric Trager.

Mr. Trager, now with the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, quoted Mr. Abolfotoh as saying:
“It was too big an operation …. They [the United States] didn’t bring this crime before the U.S. justice system until now. Why? Because it’s part of a conspiracy.” [...]

The Washington Institute’s Mr. Trager said that “the notion thatAbolfotoh is some kind of progressive is farcical.”

“He is a longtime Muslim Brother, a founder of the Islamist student movements of the 1970s, and somebody who still calls for implementing the Shariah,” he said. “His falling out with the Brotherhood was over differences regarding strategy and internal administration, not ideology.”[...]

A gay comic character coming out of the closet? Really?

Via Fox News:
Could Superman be gay?
Honchos at Superman’s comic book home, DC Comics, said this weekend that one of their most identifiable (but as of yet unnamed) straight characters will soon be coming out of the closet, according to a report.
At the Kapow Comic Convention held last weekend in London, DC co-publisher Dan DiDio said the publisher would be reintroducing a previously existing character who would now be “one of our most prominent gay characters,” the website reports.
Didio said DC’s position had shifted on the subject since he said in an interview last year that any homosexual characters would be new introductions, and that none of their existing characters’ sexual orientations would shift.
DC vice president Bob Wayne likened DC’s change in tune to President Obama’s shift on gay marriage, explaining that DC’s policy “has evolved,” the report says.

A Second Catholic School drops student health care because of Obamacare mandates

A Second Catholic School drops student health care because of Obamacare mandates. In other news, Catholic organizations across the nation have launched a lawsuit claiming being forced to pay for contraception and abortion pills violate their religious rights. .
NAPLES, Fla. -- A Catholic university in Florida decided Monday to drop its student health insurance plan over complications stemming from the federal health care overhaul, becoming the second school this month to make that move, reported.
The decision by Ave Maria University follows that of Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio. Both schools voiced moral and economic concerns with the health care law.

Officials were opposed to the so-called contraceptive coverage mandate -- but for both schools, premium costs associated with new coverage requirements appeared to fuel their anxiety. 

Ave Maria University President James Towey told in an email that school officials met Monday and decided to drop the student health plans. The university also will no longer require students to obtain health insurance. 

Participation on Komen 'Race for the Cure' events down as much as on third

There is anger on both sides of this issue. Conservatives are angry Komen was, and still is, funding Planned Parenthood. Liberals are angry Komen planned to defunded Planned Parenthood before flip-flopping on the issue. Komen is faced with a serious participation decline nationwide.
With less than a week to go before the race, team participation is lagging, with 600 teams signed up for the local event compared with last year's 700. Race officials declined to reveal how many individuals have registered. Last year, there were 30,500 paid participants.

"We are hoping for comparable numbers or better, but we know we face some challenges," said Maureen Meldrum, Komen Detroit executive director.[...]

Some recent Race for the Cure events have reported a decline in the number of participants. Lansing's race last month was down 28%. Boise, Idaho, fell 37%. Salt Lake City was down 25%.

Teacher goes off on student for asking if Obama was a high school bully (video)

The lunatics are running the asylum.  This teacher claims Obama and Romney are not equal as men and people were put in jail for speaking ill of G. W. Bush.

SPENCER — After reviewing a video in which a North Rowan High School teacher tells a student he can be arrested for speaking ill of President Barack Obama, the Rowan-Salisbury School System said it can be a learning experience.

Meanwhile, an expert on politics at Catawba College says the social studies teacher just doesn’t have her facts straight when she insists speaking your mind about a president can get you charged with a criminal offense.

Although two students provided the name of the teacher, the Post is not publishing it because officials within the school system would not confirm her identity and she could not be reached for comment.

The video captures audio of the dispute but does not show the teacher or anyone else. It appears to have been shot with a phone or other device as the camera pointed at the ceiling the entire time.

Rowan-Salisbury spokeswoman Rita Foil confirmed the teacher is still employed with the district and has not been suspended for disciplinary reasons. Foil emailed this statement to a Post reporter Friday on behalf of the school system:

Delusional Nancy Pelosi: "we have to have revenue and have to have growth"

Surely she can't mean private sector job growth. Taking money out of the free enterprise system will stifle job creation. She must mean growth in the size of government.
(The Hill) — House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Sunday challenged Speaker John Boehner to move forward with cutting middle class tax rates and blasted him for calling for matching cuts before agreeing to raise the debt-ceiling limit.
“Last year, just the threat of not lifting the debt ceiling caused us to, our credit rating to be lowered. This is not a responsible, mature, sensible place for us to go. We all know we have to reduce the deficit. We have to do it in a balanced way,” said Pelosi on ABC’s “This Week.”
“The speaker wants to go over the edge,” she added. “We have cut a trillion, over a trillion dollars in the Budget Control Act since the Budget Control Act of last year. There has to be more reductions but we have to have revenue and have to have growth.

Why did Barack Obama choose to market himself as Kenyan?

Bookworm Room has a plausible theory as to why Barack Obama decided to market himself as Kenyan when he was younger. Don't believe for a moment the story about this being a fact checking error by a low level(at the time) employee of the publisher. It has been verified this publisher, like most others, normally gets biographical information from the author and the Kenyan birth part survived 4 different revisions of the biography. Even if the publisher had pulled this out of their butt, it is not believable a narcissist like Barack Obama didn't read it. It was posted on their website through three different website changes over a 16 year period.
Barack Obama has kept carefully hidden all of his college records.  Many of us have assumed that this secrecy is because those papers show that he took nothing but Leftist Mickey Mouse classes and ended up with lousy grades.

Now that we know that Obama marketed himself to publishers as a Kenyan, though, we’re beginning to suspect that the papers hide, not only academic mediocrity, but the same Kenyan identity Obama was using to market himself in the publishing world.  The question, of course, is why would Obama pretend to be African?  After all, when it came to college admissions, wasn’t being black good enough for affirmative action purposes?[...]

When it comes to college admissions, 1978 isn’t just any year.  It’s a very special year.  It was the year that the Supreme Court decided Regents of the University of California v. Bakke (1978) 438 U.S. 265.
Regents of the University of California v. Bakke struck down affirmative action quota systems.
With that decision, Obama, who was a self-confessed slacker in high school, suddenly lost his e-ticket to a good college.   He couldn’t know then (nor would it have mattered) that the various concurrences in this deeply divided opinion would eventually open the door to colleges and universities making race a “factor” in admission, so much so that this “factor-ness” eventually created a whole new quota system.
My best guess is that, denied an opportunity to use quota systems to parlay a lousy academic record into a quality college admission, Obama searched around for other means of bypassing his academic failings.  It was this search that led him to announce that he was Kenyan. [...]
Please read the whole article here... 
Barack Obama is a self-admitted slacker and drug user in high school. It is very likely he needed some kind of assistance to get into a decent college. Before he ran for President, many people, including AP, thought Obama was born in Kenya. Even Hawaii newspapers thought Obama was born in Kenya. If Obama entered U.S. college as a Kenyan, wouldn't he have had to proven he was a foreigner by presenting a birth certificate or foreign passport?

Feel Good Story: Lockerbie bomber al-Megrahi is dead

Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset al-Megrahi was released three years ago because Great Britain wanted to make a Libyan oil deal he allegedly had only a few months to live. He has finally assumed room temperature. Let's hope he enjoys 72 goats in Hell.

Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, the only person convicted over the 1988 Lockerbie bombing above Scotland, which killed 270 people, has died at home in Libya, his brother has told news agencies. 

Megrahi, 59, was convicted by a special court in the Netherlands in 2001.

He was released from prison in Scotland in 2009 on compassionate grounds. He was suffering from cancer and was said to have only months to live.

When he returned to the Libyan capital, he received a hero's welcome.

His brother Abdulhakim said on Sunday that Megrahi's health had deteriorated quickly and he died at home in Tripoli.

WaPO: If you think Obama tried to pretend he was born in Kenya, you are a new type 'Birther' or something

Can the lapdog media become anymore disgraceful? The bio that claims Obama was born in Kenya likely came from Barack Obama and was checked by Obama and Michelle many times. It was used for 16 years by his publisher, including the publicity for Dreams of my Father.

Via WaPo:
And then there is the latest version of Obama birthology, with a new twist: Okay, maybe he wasn’t born in Africa, but he tried to pretend he was.
Here’s where it comes from: A few days back, came across a 1991 short bio of Obama published by his then-literary agency, which described him as “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.” It was included in a booklet that contained descriptions of 90 agency clients and was distributed only within the publishing industry, according to Breitbart.

Obama may lose Arkansas primary to little known candidate. Democrats move to strip any delegates he wins.

 John Wolfe, Jr

Nothing is allowed to interfere with the coronation of the 'Democrats Dear Leader.'
After a poll released this week showed President Barack Obama only beating his Democratic primary opponent John Wolfe Jr. by seven points, 45 percent to 38 percent, in Arkansas's Fourth Congressional District, state Democrats moved to practically disenfranchise Arkansas voters. "[D]elegates Wolfe might claim won't be recognized at the national convention," national party officials are telling state Democrats. Wolfe is being accused of not following the party rules.

“They want a coronation,” Wolfe tells THE WEEKLY STANDARD. [...]

Wolfe insists he’s done the due diligence to qualify for delegates and that the state party is making decisions ad hoc to get the results they desire.  “This is ridiculous," he says. "These guys are trying to tamp down voter enthusiasm.”

Hawaii officials stall on providing Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett confirmation Obama was born in Hawaii

Why in the world are officials in Hawaii stalling on providing Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett confirmation Obama was born in Hawaii? He hasn't asked for a copy of Obama's actual birth certificate. He just wants them to give him official confirmation Obama was actually born in Hawaii. Where there is smoke, there is fire.
On Thursday, Bennett said he sent his request to Hawaii officials eight weeks ago but has yet to get the proof he was hoping for. He said he didn’t want another copy of the birth certificate. He wants Hawaii to give him what he described as “a verification in lieu of a certified copy of a birth certificate.”

In the weeks since then, Bennett said, Hawaii officials have forced him to provide proof that he is who he says he is. They asked him to send them copies of the Arizona laws that prove the secretary of state really is the person in charge of handling the ballots. Admittedly, Bennett said they told him they were “tired of all the requests.” But he is continuing anyway.

Broomhead, the radio host, pressed Bennett on what he would do if he didn’t get the right response back from Hawaii.

“If they won’t comply, if they refuse to comply with this, will you remove the president from the ballot?” Broomhead asked. “Will you exclude him from the ballot?”

“That’s possible,” Bennett said. “Or the other option would be I would ask all of candidates, including the president, maybe to submit a certified copy of their birth certificate. But I don’t want to do that.”
Some of my family members have had experience dealing with officials in Hawaii and I can confirm they are a bunch of libtards.
