Is This Malfeasance in Office By Obama???

Posted by Yorkshire on 2013/11/05

The By-Stander President has said over and over “if you like your insurance plan, you can keep it, Period. if you like your doctor you can keep him, Period.” I believe these statement in plain everyday English and Diction to make a clear declarative statement that do stand on their own. These need no interpretation or explanation to be understood. Obama has said this and recorded over 20 times. Now lets look at Malfeasance.

mal·fea·sance
mælˈfizəns/ Show Spelled [mal-fee-zuhns] Show IPA noun Law.
the performance by a public official of an act that is legally unjustified, harmful, or contrary to law; wrongdoing (used especially of an act in violation of a public trust). Compare misfeasance ( def 2 ) , nonfeasance.

Now at least 20 times or more Obama has said this: “If you like your plan, you can keep it PERIOD”

Now, within the last few days, Obama has taken the word “Period” or end of statement and turned it to another New Lie. Now Obama has dropped PERIOD and now has a new qualifier since people have lost their insurance and doctor. The worst is a woman being treated for FOUR YEARS for Cancer lost her plan and can not find another one to replace it.

It is clear the President has Lied, Misled, stretched beyond all recognition THE TRUTH.

Constitution says:
Section II
Section 4.

The President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.

Meaning of “High Crimes and Misdemeanors”

by Jon Roland, Constitution Society

The question of impeachment turns on the meaning of the phrase in the Constitution at Art. II Sec. 4, “Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors”. I have carefully researched the origin of the phrase “high crimes and misdemeanors” and its meaning to the Framers, and found that the key to understanding it is the word “high”. It does not mean “more serious”. It refers to those punishable offenses that only apply to high persons, that is, to public officials, those who, because of their official status, are under special obligations that ordinary persons are not under, and which could not be meaningfully applied or justly punished if committed by ordinary persons.

Under the English common law tradition, crimes were defined through a legacy of court proceedings and decisions that punished offenses not because they were prohibited by statutes, but because they offended the sense of justice of the people and the court. Whether an offense could qualify as punishable depended largely on the obligations of the offender, and the obligations of a person holding a high position meant that some actions, or inactions, could be punishable if he did them, even though they would not be if done by an ordinary person.

Offenses of this kind survive today in the Uniform Code of Military Justice. It recognizes as punishable offenses such things as perjury of oath, refusal to obey orders, abuse of authority, dereliction of duty, failure to supervise, moral turpitude, and conduct unbecoming. These would not be offenses if committed by a civilian with no official position, but they are offenses which bear on the subject’s fitness for the duties he holds, which he is bound by oath or affirmation to perform.

Perjury is usually defined as “lying under oath”. That is not quite right. The original meaning was “violation of one’s oath (or affirmation)”.

The word “perjury” is usually defined today as “lying under oath about a material matter”, but that is not its original or complete meaning, which is “violation of an oath”. We can see this by consulting the original Latin from which the term comes. From An Elementary Latin Dictionary, by Charlton T. Lewis (1895), Note that the letter “j” is the letter “i” in Latin.
periurium, i, n,, a false oath, perjury.periurus, adj., oath-breaking, false to vows, perjured. iuro, avi, atus, are, to swear, take an oath.iurator, oris, m., a swearer.iuratus, adj., sworn under oath, bound by an oath.ius, iuris, that which is binding, right, justice, duty.per, … IV. Of means or manner, through, by, by means of, … under pretense of, by the pretext of, ….

BO Fiddles While Egyptian Christian Churches Burn – The Egyptian Kristallnacht?

Posted by Yorkshire on 2013/08/16

Is this Egypt’s version of Kristallnacht

Kristallnacht

A massive, coordinated attack on Jews throughout the German Reich on the night of November 9, 1938, into the next day, has come to be known as Kristallnacht or The Night of Broken Glass.

The attack came after Herschel Grynszpan, a 17 year old Jew living in Paris, shot and killed a member of the German Embassy staff there in retaliation for the poor treatment his father and his family suffered at the hands of the Nazis in Germany.

On October 27, Grynszpan’s family and over 15,000 other Jews, originally from Poland, had been expelled from Germany without any warning. They were forcibly transported by train in boxcars then dumped at the Polish border.

For Adolf Hitler and Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels, the shooting in Paris provided an opportunity to incite Germans to “rise in bloody vengeance against the Jews.”

Reported List of Churches and Christian Institutions Attacked in Egypt Since Wednesday Will Astonish You

Aug. 15, 2013 11:59pm Erica Ritz
A wave of devastating violence swept through Egypt Wednesday as the government attempted to disband the supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi from their sit-ins. According to the Associated Press, 638 people have now been confirmed killed, and nearly 4,000 are injured.

The fighting is far from limited to the Islamists and the military, however. Since Wednesday’s violence began, there have also been a wave of attacks on churches and Christian institutions.

Amira Mikhail at Nile Revolt compiled a shocking list with the help of Mai El-Sadany, Amir Beshay, “aggregating information that was shared online about attacks on churches and their institutions around Egypt.”

“Please note that this is a work-in-progress and information so far is unverified although most is backed up with tweets and photos,” she wrote. “We are hoping to continue the efforts to verify details. If you have any corrections or updates to church names, photos, or details, please reach out to am.mikhail@gmail.com or my twitter.”

Though there may be some changes made to the list, what has been assembled so far is staggering.

Department of Injustice Joins Anti-Zimmerman Protests Before Trial – And Here We’ve Been Taught Justice Is Blind. Fooled Again.

Posted by Yorkshire on 2013/07/10

In the United States, Justice is supposed to be BLIND. It should be in Ideal Cases that the Courts deliver a fair and just trial to be judged by a Judge, or a Jury of the defendant’s peers. The Justice Department for its symbol has the scales of justice to be equal and blind. Or as Sgt. Friday would say, just the facts, ma’am, just the facts. As said, in all trials this is the ideal, but we know “things happen” and if severe enough, a mistrial happens. This is a statue representing Blind Justice:

However, our present Department of Injustice has forgotten this. It started its tenure in 2009 by dismissing a guilty plea by persons obstructing the voting process. We see the myriad of scandals with NSA, IRS, and others. Most of this is being done by Omission, than Commission. Or, don’t say anything and it may disappear. But with the George Zimmerman trial Withholder’s Department of Injustice has sunk to another new low in that they campaigned and spent TAX DOLLARS to vilify the Defendant, Zimmerman. See below. This is how Justice Feels now. In Shame.

Newly Released Documents Detail the Department of Justice’s Role in Organizing Trayvon Martin Protests
DOJ deployed obscure section to play role in Florida protests.

July 10, 2013 – 9:29 am

Judicial Watch announced today that it has obtained documents proving that the Department of Justice played a major behind-the-scenes role in organizing protests against George Zimmerman. Zimmerman is on trial for second-degree murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in February 2012.

Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the DOJ on April 24, 2012. According to the documents JW received, a little-known DOJ unit called the Community Relations Service deployed to Sanford, FL, to organize and manage rallies against Zimmerman.

Among JW’s findings:

March 25 – 27, 2012, CRS spent $674.14 upon being “deployed to Sanford, FL to work marches, demonstrations, and rallies related to the shooting and death of an African-American teen by a neighborhood watch captain.”

March 25 – 28, 2012, CRS spent $1,142.84 “in Sanford, FL to work marches, demonstrations, and rallies related to the shooting and death of an African-American teen by a neighborhood watch captain.”

March 30 – April 1, 2012, CRS spent $892.55 in Sanford, FL “to provide support for protest deployment in Florida.”

March 30 – April 1, 2012, CRS spent an additional $751.60 in Sanford, FL “to provide technical assistance to the City of Sanford, event organizers, and law enforcement agencies for the march and rally on March 31.”

April 3 – 12, 2012, CRS spent $1,307.40 in Sanford, FL “to provide technical assistance, conciliation, and onsite mediation during demonstrations planned in Sanford.”

April 11-12, 2012, CRS spent $552.35 in Sanford, FL “to provide technical assistance for the preparation of possible marches and rallies related to the fatal shooting of a 17 year old African American male.” – expenses for employees to travel, eat, sleep?
JW says the documents it obtained reveal that CRS is not engaging in its stated mission of conducting “impartial mediation practices and conflict resolution,” but instead engaged on the side of the anti-Zimmerman protesters.

Oops! UK Climate Change Czar: Humans May Not Be Responsible For Global Warming After All

Michael Miller
On May 30, 2013

Holy carbon offset, say it ain’t so, Al! The UK’s Energy and Climate Change czar said this week that although he still believes the earth’s temperature is rising, “natural phases” may be to blame.

Translation: We didn’t do it. (Al Gore unavailable for comment.) From The Telegraph:

Ted Yeo, an environment minister under John Major, is one of the Conservative Party’s strongest advocates of radical action to cut carbon emissions. His comments are significant as he was one of the first senior figures to urge the party to take the issue of environmental change seriously.

He insisted such action is “prudent” given the threat climate change poses to living standards worldwide. But, he said, human action is merely a “possible cause.”

Food Stamps

Posted by Yorkshire on 2012/12/26

Not News: Food Stamp Participation Jumped by Over 600,000 in September; Last Pre-Election Number Revised Up
By Tom Blumer | December 07, 2012 | 23:57

The U.S. Department of Agriculture released its latest report on food stamp program participation through September today. I received the email alerting me to the release at 5:17 p.m., so it seems reasonable to believe that USDA and the Barack Obama administration wanted the new data to get as little attention as possible (as will be seen later, it’s currently getting none). If so, they have two probable reasons for wishing to minimize its impact.

The first and more obvious of the two is that the food stamp rolls increased by over 607,000 in September to 47.71 million, yet another all-time record. That’s awful enough, but here’s the real kicker: the participation figure for July, the last month of data available before Election Day, was revised up by over 150,000, changing that month’s reported increase from 11,600 to just under 166,000. As will be seen after the jump, no other month’s data was revised except August, where the changes were infinitesimal

Is BO North America’s Hugo Chavez?

Posted by Yorkshire on 2012/06/17

BO has demonstrated quite clearly he has a TOTAL Disdain for the US Constitution. When it fits his needs, actually wants, he will trample on any law that gets in his way. Below describes how he disregards the Defense of Marriage Act. This past week by FIAT, his spoken authority, made his own Amnesty Law. I think it’s fairly obvious Obama has a total diregard for the Constitution by saying the ordinary way of doing things are not going my way. He says the Congress is a do nothing organization. When the Constitution was writen it was set up that way. The way BO is operating is extra-constitution so BO is shredding his oath of office when he swore he would abide by it, and all the laws. Can we spell Impeachment? Can we spell Dictator. BO is still in Community Organizer mode.

Are We in Revolutionary Times?
By Victor Davis Hanson
June 15, 2012 6:51 P.M.

Legally, President Obama has reiterated the principle that he can pick and choose which U.S. laws he wishes to enforce (see his decision to reverse the order of the Chrysler creditors, his decision not to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act, and his administration’s contempt for national-security confidentiality and Senate and House subpoenas to the attorney general). If one individual can decide to exempt nearly a million residents from the law — when he most certainly could not get the law amended or repealed through proper legislative or judicial action — then what can he not do? Obama is turning out to be the most subversive chief executive in terms of eroding U.S. law since Richard Nixon.

Is Obama ‘Dangerously Close To Totalitarianism’?
Posted by Yorkshire on 6 April 2012, 9:56 pm

To me, before the 2008 election it was clear as day at what BO would be. You can ask Gretchen, Eric and the Editor on the First Street Journal that I have alluded one way or another to what is in this editorial. All I needed to know about BO was a Community Activist, a Marxist lover, Revvum Wright, his Hawaiian Communist Mentor “George”, ACORN, the friends and professors in college had to be radical, Bill Ayers, Saul Alinsky, his illegal visit to Pakistan (which is now believed to be on a Brit Passport via Kenya), no background, no friends speaking up, school papers sealed and what he told Joe the Plumber. What more did I need???? And 95% of this was known before the election. I told this to two campaigners for BO in Oct, 2008. This information was readily known in his books. And finally, he had no executive training or experience.

Word Of Honor? Or Contract?

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/03/29

Which is more valuable to you? Your word of honor or a legally binding contract you sign? There is at least one modern, industrialized nation that to this day culturally values your “gentleman’s handshake” more greatly than your signature on a piece of paper. Likely, there are more than one, due to a cultural thing.

From my reading and from my experience, Japan is such a place. And I expect it’s a trans-national cultural thing, and something we used to have in the US, before people of low morals de-stigmatized breaking one’s word of honor.

In Japan, your signature on a piece of paper carries much less weight than your actual word of honor, your actual promise. If you break your promise (which would be lying), you dishonor yourself. You also dishonor your employer and your associates and your friends. But most importantly, you dishonor your family (sometimes irreparably). You become an absolute disgrace to all who have connections to you, and they will do their best to distance themselves from you. And, ya know, I think that ain’t such a bad idea, yo. If people who break promises became Pariahs, the world would become a much healthier place.

In my last Ohio job, I worked for a Japanese-owned company. A large percentage of the employees there were Japanese citizens on US work visas. They absolutely valued personal honor. They absolutely valued your word. And if you broke your word you were a disgrace, not to be trusted in anything at all.

What brought this up? That’s the wrong question, actually. As the saying goes, “the answer is only important if the right question is asked”. Who brought this up? Perry Hood brought this up. If you’ve been a follower of this site for any time, you’ll know Perry Hood is a radical Leftist “absolute relativist” who comments on The First Street Journal under the name “Wagonwheel” (generic link in deference to the blog owner, who allows anonymity, even of malignant sorts, on his site (which means this link will not trackback to any article there)). Perry Hood made a promise some time ago not to comment on my articles, in my threads. He has previously “accidentally” done so, and when called on it, he has “given permission” for me to delete his comments. But in each of the most recent three days, Perry Hood has knowingly and intentionally commented on my TFSJ articles, claiming he has chosen to retract his promise (as if that is even honorably possible).

What made the difference? Convenience. Perry Hood found it highly inconvenient to keep his promise to not comment on my articles, thus Perry Hood decided he would be Dishohorable and disgrace himself by breaking his sworn oath not to comment on my articles. And in doing so, Perry Hood tried to lay the blame on others because I have forced him to keep his promise (by deleting all or most of each of his comments) and because the site owner has given me leeway to enforce Perry Hood’s promise.

In Modern-Day Japanese culture (and likely in the culture of the entirety of the Pacific Rim, as I have found occasion to speak in-depth with a Filipino businesswoman who lives in the same culture and has traveled to the US (only to be disgusted by San Fransisco elevator eyes)), Perry Hood would be a Pariah, a disgrace to himself, his family, his associates (and his employers if he weren’t already retired), and be cast out of civilized conversation and associations, due specifically to his Dishonorable actions. But, in Modern-Day radical Leftist US culture, it’s perfectly alright to lie and make an oath that you repeatedly break later under one condition: Keeping the oath you made inconveniences you to any degree whatsoever.

So, Perry Hood, the radical Leftist, self-proclaimed “Progressive” (read Socialist) from Delaware, has declared his promises to not be worth the breath it takes to make them, if they inconvenience him in the least, and that everyone else is to blame if they even deign to hold him to his self-admitted oaths.

UPDATE
I received a query from someone on FaceBook for whom I have great respect. The query went along the lines of “Isn’t a written contract a verbal agreement, only in writing?” That is absolutely right in an American world. And the written contract holds much greater weight in an American world, because it provides proof of the agreement. I’ll note that the promise Perry Hood made was, actually, in writing and posted for the entire world to see. So, that difference does not provide a mitigating factor for Perry Hood.

But let’s take it out of the Dishonorable Perry Hood realm (where he fails on both counts) and into the hypothetical realm, comparing cultures.

In much of modern, industrialized Japan: (In many areas and in many families)

A business contract is business.
If you violate that contract, it’s business and to be dealt with as business.

If you give a personal promise, it’s you, standing there naked with just your honor to clothe you.
If you dishonor your personal promise in any way, YOU are dishonored by your own actions.
If your family does not disown you and turn you into a Pariah, your family is likewise dishonored by accepting you. And they forever live in the shame and dishonor you have heaped upon them as being family of a loathesome, dishonorable person. (Think Star Trek TNG and the Klingons.)
If your friends and acquaintances do not turn their backs on you, they, too, become dishonorable because they kept their ties with a dishonorable person.
Likewise, a business who honors the dishonorable is dishonorable.
And the snowball grows large enough to tear an automobile from the road, sending it and its occupants into destruction.

No, in some cultures, even modern industrialized cultures, it is far worse to dishonor your personal oaths than to violate your business agreements.

And that is exactly what Perry Hood did, in intentionally violating his personal oath at least 5 times in 3 consecutive days. He not only brought shame upon himself but upon all who closely affiliate themselves with him, and upon all with whom he closely affiliates himself.

Truer Today Than in 1948 – …. isms

Posted by Yorkshire on 2012/03/18

This animated production was made in 1948 concerning the creeping stealing of rights. Incrementally it has been done. It’s like a drip in a 55 gallon drum. One drop means virtually nothing, but eventually that drum will be filled and it will overflow. Or it’s been like boiling frogs. Put a few frogs in a pot of cold water and very slowly raise the heat under the pot to the point where the frogs don’t notice it, but by the time they do, they’re boiled. We’ve seen this in the last few weeks where a few words in legislation the majority did not want, is trying to strip first Amendment rights away from us. All of this has been going on since President Wilson, then pulled back, then President FDR, and half pulled back, and it seems each President has been taking a little bit here, a little bit there until we’re close to being the boiled frog. This animation is truer today than it was in 1948. “Make Mine FREEDOM”

1984

Posted by Yorkshire on 2012/02/10

Personal note, the book was published a week and a few days after I was born, FWIW. I read this in High School (mid 60′s) and saw it was alive and well in the Communist Countries. Then later on it seemed to creep into western Europe and kept moving westward to here. As far as the term “New Speak”, well call that POLITICAL CORRECTNESS. As far as eternal Wars, in one way or another it’s been all my life. When one hot spot was quelled, another showed up. If the wars didn’t include us, there were more than enough to fill in before we got activated again. During Viet-Nam, I was A+ on the Draft list. Escaped that by being in the reserves. Johnson assured us of fill-ins with the war on drugs. The Muddled East has provided non-stop action along with Africa.

The the king of all American wars since the book was written is the never ending war on terror. Now what do we have, street surveillence, traffic cams (double duty), Computerization of health records, an enemy’s list, practically strip searches at airports, this monstrosity of government healthcare to control us, recording of license plates to track our moves, about 100 federal police agencies, spying domestic and foreign, reading of emails and blogs. What’s next?

Nineteen Eighty-Four

(first published in 1949) by George Orwell is a dystopian novel about Oceania, a society ruled by the oligarchical dictatorship of the Party. Life in the Oceanian province of Airstrip One is a world of perpetual war, pervasive government surveillance, and incessant public mind control, accomplished with a political system euphemistically named English Socialism (Ingsoc), which is administrated by a privileged Inner Party elite.

Yet they too are subordinated to the totalitarian cult of personality of Big Brother, the deified Party leader who rules with a philosophy that decries individuality and reason as thoughtcrimes; thus the people of Oceania are subordinated to a supposed collective greater good. The protagonist, Winston Smith, is a member of the Outer Party who works for the Ministry of Truth (Minitrue), which is responsible for propaganda and historical revisionism. His job is to re-write past newspaper articles so that the historical record is congruent with the current party ideology. Because of the childhood trauma of the destruction of his family — the disappearances of his parents and sister — Winston Smith secretly hates the Party, and dreams of rebellion against Big Brother.

As literary political fiction and as dystopian science-fiction, Nineteen Eighty-Four is a classic novel in content, plot, and style. Many of its terms and concepts, such as Big Brother, doublethink, thoughtcrime, Newspeak, and memory hole, have become contemporary vernacular since its publication in 1949. Moreover, Nineteen Eighty-Four popularised the adjective Orwellian, which refers to official deception, secret surveillance, and manipulation of the past in service to a totalitarian or manipulative political agenda.

Three Obama Failures in Oil – The Anti-Jobs President Strikes Again – Don’t Look for These in the State of the Union

Posted by Yorkshire on 2012/01/24

Three separate, but co-mingled incidents recently happened that has left many scratching their heads in disbelief. All of these have the Obama Administration, or Obama’s fingerprints all over them. The first on is in Brazil. It was kind of funky that BO talked out of both sides of his mouth last year. While he closed the Gulf of Mexico to virtually all oil exploration, he encouraged Brazil to open deep water exploration and development of a new oil field in the Atlantic. He said at that time he would give Brazil $2Billion to help develop. (But there is some dispute about that) And he did say that the USA would be their No.1 customer. Well, we won’t be, Brazil signed a $10Billion deal with the Chinese to develop the field.

China gets jump on U.S. for Brazil’s oil
By Kelly Hearn – Special to The Washington Times

BUENOS AIRES — Off the coast of Rio de Janeiro — below a mile of water and two miles of shifting rock, sand and salt — is an ultradeep sea of oil that could turn Brazil into the world’s fourth-largest oil producer, behind Russia, Saudi Arabia and the United States.

Moron this story here and there:

And this article: Obama’s Brazilian Oil Disaster

http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=49008

————————————————————————————————————————
Then we go to No.2. Number two is the rejection of the Keystone XL Pipeline by TransCanada to bring oil to southern refineries from Alberta. It was reject to appease the evironMENTALists and the Left because any other excuse makes no economic sense at all. Canada has more oil than it needs for its own population. They sell 90% of their exports to us. Since it appears BO has to support his Far Left Base, rejection was easy. What small environment issues could have bee worked out while constructing the pipeline. In the meantime, Canada may sell the oil to China (is there a theme here?)

Keystone XL pipeline proposal rejected — for now
TransCanada will apply again, CEO says
By Laura Payton, CBC News

The U.S. government has denied an application by TransCanada to build the Keystone XL pipeline, the State Department announced Wednesday.

A statement released by the department said it doesn’t preclude the Calgary-based TransCanada from applying again with a different route, and the company said in a press release that it will do just that.
Moron this story here:

http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/story/2012/01/18/pol-keystone-xl-pipeline.html

———————————————————————————————————————–

And then No.3. Unofficially the unemployment rate is around 15% in spite of the alleged official rate of 8.5%. One state has the lowest unemployment rate at 2.5% and it is North Dakota. Why? The Bakken Oil Field. There is a giant oil BOOM in ND. At the oil fields, oil is extracted by Fracking which is injecting a fluid under high pressure to fracture the shale and release the oil. ND figures it need thousands of more workers for these fields. But, it’s BO to the rescue, not in a good way. His friends the EnvironMENTALists hate fracking. So, how does BO stop this success story, why the EPA of course.

EPA May Place Moratorium on Further Fracking Until 2013

In a quite remarkable recent story in the Bismark Tribune, Lynn Helms the Director of the Department of Mineral Resources, stated be believes the EPA is on track to halt hydraulic fracturing as soon as January of 2012.

With billions of dollars, thousands of jobs, and over 200 rigs currently working in the area, this would be a monumental setback for the industry.

“Crazy” Larry is at it again

Posted by Hube on 2011/10/07

… about “sitting on the sidelines” during the nascent civil rights movement in the 50s and early 60s … forgetting that he admitted he does precisely the same thing for the reason Cain’s father told Cain. Check it:

Where do you think black people would be sitting on the bus today if Rosa Parks had followed your father’s advice [for Herman not to make trouble if told to sit in the back of the bus; my note, Cain was 9 years old at the time of Parks' act of defiance.]

You watched black college students from around the country and white college students from around the country come to the south and be murdered, fighting for the rights of African-Americans; do you regret sitting on the sidelines at that time?

So, Crazy Larry chides Mr. Cain, yet admitted himself that he doesn’t criticize radical Muslims like he should … because he fears for his life:

HUGH HEWITT: Would you say the same things about Mohammed as you just said about Joseph Smith?

O’DONNELL: Oh, well, I’m afraid of what the…that’s where I’m really afraid. I would like to criticize Islam much more than I do publicly, but I’m afraid for my life if I do.

HEWITT: Well, that’s candid.

O’DONNELL: Mormons are the nicest people in the world. They’re not going to ever…

HEWITT: So you can be bigoted towards Mormons, because they’ll just send you a strudel.

O’DONNELL: They’ll never take a shot at me. Those other people, I’m not going to say a word about them.

Nothing like an admitted socialist like O’Donnell lecturing a black man on what he “should have done” during the civil rights movement when he was a minor and a young college student (because, in part, he feared violence), yet is afraid to do his job as an adult because he fears for his life.

What a sanctimonious hypocritical a-hole.

Our mainstream media and you

Posted by Hube on 2011/10/03

They’re at it again. Surprise, that! They still beat the “racist” drumbeat against the Tea Party against all evidence (and/or lack thereof) so when there is ANY connection to a Republican with something obviously racist — no matter how remote — well, they’re gonna LET. YOU. KNOW!! Check it:

So, Rick Perry’s family had a hunting lease on a piece of land that featured a large boulder. On the boulder—either as signage, or a graffiti—was the term “Niggerhead.” As soon as Perry’s family started leasing the land, they painted the rock over. Yet the offensive name was still visible through the paint, and people saw it.

So the Perry family, which never owned this property, eventually turned the rock over to make sure that the offensive term could never be seen. (How much did that cost, by the way? Getting heavy boulder-turning machinery to a hunting camp couldn’t be cheap.)

The Washington Post was able to find multiple people who were willing to claim that the word was visible on the rock while the Perrys were leasing the property—and using it intermittently—back in the 1980s. What the people at the Post apparently cannot reproduce is a picture of the rock. Even though the legend was supposedly very prominent, possibly official signage for that hunting camp, and so difficult to paint over that the word showed through the paint.

Ironically, Perry was a Democrat during most (if not all) of the timeframe in question. That’s probably why it wasn’t worthy of a mention then, but is now, now that Perry is a member of the GOP.

Not to mention — where the f*** was the Post back during campaign 2008 with this story and photos? And back to the “racist” Tea Party, where is all the coverage of the actual hate and lunacy (and arrests!) evident at these Wall Street protests?

That’s right — doesn’t fit THE NARRATIVETM

A Bridge Too Far(t)

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/10/03

I had to link to PERRY HOOD‘s site because he is the very typical far-Left radical socialist who pretends “progressive” means something other than socialist. How typical is he? His site is a paid site. And a Conservative who disagrees with everything he stands for paid for it. That’s right. Perry Hood’s radical Left-wing site is paid for by a Conservative site. Granted, the Conservative only had to pay the cost tied to the name and the new page, and then piggy-backed the absolutely minimal blog activity onto his own, but the fact remains the far-Left radical Socialist Perry Hood could not come up with the money to pay for his own site and instead of using a free site, took the money from a Conservative to provide him with a free-of-charge paid site that cost Perry Hood not a single dime.

I like using the full name Perry Hood because he went ballistic after I used it on Dana Pico’s site linked above, after Perry Hood had used it himself for a long time on the blogosphere. As you can see by his continued allowance of his last name, that being Hood, to be broadcast on his own site — that a Conservative paid the costs for him to provide — his offense at his last name, which he previously used on blog sites, is wholly dishonest. He only wanted to attack a Conservative he hated (me) for using his last name on the intertubes.

And here’s a clear picture to how abysmally his radical Left-wing with the lie-filled name has done.

Nobody is buying his radical agenda.

Perry Hood started his site, paid for by someone not named Perry Hood, as a “bridging the gap” site, and he had various authors on both sides start out writing for him. It has since become the Perry Hood show because Perry Hood is not the type to actually “bridge the gap”. He has been called out by Conservatives for his absolute radical Leftism and his denial of facts and his total memory loss. He has been called out by Libertarians for his memory loss (read: lies).

But let’s take a look at Perry Hood’s “gap bridging” shall we?

From Common Sense Political Thought:

Right, a short term deal following the disastrous debt ceiling hostage taking, done by your Repubs which succeeded in lowering our credit rating and made the unstable global financial situation more unstable. Yeah, Hube, that was real responsible. And yes, don’t forget, also, your Repub party bore major responsibility for the crash of Fall 2008 with your tax cut/big spending/laissez faire policies finally coming home to roost, now followed by a do-nothing Congressional dysfunction.

You folks caused these major problems, and now attempt to blame President Obama for them! Some integrity that is. If we happen to elect you crackpot radicals back into power, we will then deserve getting more of the same dysfunction, which will then say more about the dysfunction of the American people themselves. I’m hoping that this will not be the outcome in 2012, that the American people will step up, being above and beyond having such dysfunction.

And again from Common Sense Political Thought:

“Given that any of the Republican candidates, even including Representative Ron Paul (R-TX), couldn’t possibly make a worse President than the guy who is in office now, I’d say that it’s a pragmatic position to take. “ (quoting Dana Pico)

Now I know for sure what I have suspected for several months, Dana, and that is you have lost it, totally and completely!!!

But let’s look at his “gap bridging” from his own site, which has so many “comments closed” articles (and if you refuse to allow Leftist lunatics to thread-jack, you’re violating the First Amendment you claim to love. Especially if you ban anyone).

Here’s this:

It is refreshing to have the do-nothing Republican Party countered by folks who seek after the truth in order to counter the propaganda. “Bridging the Gap” is facilitated by knowing and acknowledging the truth.

And this:

These charts, originally posted here, are well worth reposting on my blog, simply because they demonstrate graphically not only the depth of the problem that Obama inherited from Bush and his party, but also the headway he has made in setting our economy back on track. They also give the lie to the protestations and propagandizing being done on a daily basis by the right wing media.

OK Dana, in addition to what I just pointed out, let me address your constant whining that Obama is a failure

And this:

Folks need to take into account the past performance of the S&P ratings before going off half-cocked against the soundness of the United States with regard to paying our debts, that is, unless our radical Right continues in their attempts to pull the rug out from under the American people in their zeal to unseat Obama and take over both houses of Congress.

And this:

What will it take for our right wing tea party extremists to realize these pending realities?

And this:

These House Republicans, mainly, are ready and willing to send this nation over a financial cliff in order to get their way. This is a relatively small minority who have the power to say “no” because they have decided not to say “yes” to anything. Most other Republicans are also responsible, bowing to the wishes of one Grover Norquist and their signed pledge to NEVER raise taxes. These radicals, and that is exactly what they all are, would put the entire burden for deficit/debt reduction on the backs of the middle class.

And these Republicans think they are doing the Right thing, where the Right thing is utter insanity, against the best interests of the American people. Patriots these people fashion themselves to be. Patriots these people are not!!!

And this:

Furthermore, we now see these oligarchs and their sheep working hard to suppress the vote in 2012 by making it more difficult to register, among other things.

But of course, this one takes the cake:

Hatred of Obama: Is Race a Factor?

I definitely think it is, otherwise how does one explain the outright unabashed hatred of President Obama coming from regions and from those who have a history of racial prejudices, and coming from a popular right wing radio host who makes no bones about his hatred for Obama, and his racist outlook, both in general and specifically.

So, do go over to his site and read some of his “gap bridging” and his radical Leftist comics. Find a blog entry that is actually open for comments and let him know what you think of his “gap bridging”. Also let him know I sent you. He’ll like that. Or maybe not.
