“This rodeo clown incident may become a political tipping point. The racialists might have gone to the race well one too many times. It seems that everything is being turned into a racial incident because liberal ideology is beginning to fracture. Liberals need a diversion.
“Trayvon is the Emmett Till of our era.” How a man defending himself against repeated blows to his head can be compared to brutalizing a defenseless 14-year-old boy who had been kidnapped from his uncle’s house and then beaten, shot, and was later thrown in the Tallahatchie River where his body was discovered and retrieved from the river three days later.
The Missouri fair rodeo clown wore an Obama mask. He didn't come out in blackface. The clown wore a mask that was similar to the one that Obama had worn on Saturday Night Live.He came out as George W. Bush was depicted as a monkey and Adolf Hitler. I don't recall him ever making an issue of it.
Obama’s race has given him political cover for nearly five years.
So what’s worse? Putting on an Obama mask and ridiculing the president or calling him, as Oliver Stone just did, a “snake” that “we have to turn on”? Reminds of the Gadsden Flag that pictures a coiled snake ready to strike that reads, "Don't Tread on Me
Sens. John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) have finally come around to joining Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) in believing that the U.S. should cut off aid to Egypt amid the deteriorating conditions in that country.
In a joint Friday afternoon statement, McCain and Graham called for the $1.5 billion of annual U.S. aid to Egypt to be cut off until conditions improve there.
Both Graham and McCain opposed an amendment Paul offered in late July that would have redirected the $1.5 billion per year the U.S. spends on Egypt to help rebuilding the interior of the United States. “All I can see is the billions of American tax dollars that he chooses to send overseas,” Paul said on the Senate floor during that battle, according to Politico. “The president sends billions of dollars to Egypt in the form of advanced fighter plans and tanks while Detroit crumbles.
“In our hour of need in our country, why are you sending money to people that hate us?” Paul added.
When McCain opposed Paul’s amendment cutting off aid to Egypt, he argued that such a move would hurt Israel. “This is a question of whether the senator from Kentucky knows what’s better for Israel, or if Israel knows what’s better for Israel,” McCain”
“Excuse me, I must be confused. I thought Speaker
Boehner was a Republican and that the Congress that approved the Budget Control
Act in Aug. 2011 was a Republican Congress. Please enlighten me, tell me how
the President signed a Bill that wasn't passed. A White House economist had
simply suggested that making a deal that was equally distasteful in order to
encourage everyone to avoid the “Fiscal Cliff” that would occur if the debt
ceiling was not raised. Also, I'm pretty certain that Speaker Boehner was delighted
with the outcome since he did say that he got 98% of what he wanted. What the
President wanted was raising the debt ceiling to avoid default on our debts. He
settled for this in hopes it would age a real budget deal with the GOP Congress. In
Jan. 2013 the deadline for agreeing on budget cuts triggered the Sequester
because Congress and the President still could not reach an agreement. I don't think the President got 98% of what he wanted but why is Boehner whining now that he got 98% of what he wanted?”
“Hillary Clinton's Benghazi Meltdown: What Difference Does It Make?
Fireworks erupted on Capitol Hill, as numerous Senators laid into outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton regarding her role prior to and during the Benghazi terrorist attack on the anniversary of September 11th last year. A particularly heated exchange took place with Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin. At one point, Hillary Clinton exploded in barely contained fury:
“With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decided to go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?” Clinton asked the Republican Senator. “It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again.”
Public accountability does matter, Mrs. Clinton. The days of Washington politicians pretending to hold themselves accountable during staged hearings that lead to nothing have to stop. It seems that the Republican Party finally got that message.Obama Threw Her Under The Bus, Hillary New Obamas Plan So He Could Get Elected Hilary Did A Stupid Thing We Can't Trust Her Now”

“Obama hasn't defunded anything. Even SHOUTING IT doesn't make it so. The Congress is responsible for the budget. They refused to negotiate and triggered the Sequester. I would point out the Speaker Boehner said that the Sequester was 98% of what he wanted. The cuts are an automatic, across the board cuts to every department. The Departments set the priorities to the best of their ability but must meet the Sequester requirements.”
“Behind Benghazi: Muslim Brotherhood and Obama Administration
Evidence that Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood was directly involved in the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, where Americans including U.S. ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens were killed, continues to mount.
First, on June 26, 2013, I produced and partially translated what purported to be an internal Libyan governmental memo which was leaked and picked up by many Arabic websites. According to this document, the Muslim Brotherhood, including now ousted President Morsi, played a direct role in the Benghazi consulate attack. “Based on confessions derived from some of those arrested at the scene,” asserted the report, six people, “all of them Egyptians” from the jihad group Ansar al-Sharia (Supporters of Islamic Law), were arrested. During interrogations, these Egyptian jihadi cell members:
confessed to very serious and important information concerning the financial sources of the group and the planners of the event and the storming and burning of the U.S. consulate in Benghazi…. And among the more prominent figures whose names were mentioned by cell members during confessions were: Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi; preacher Safwat Hegazi; Saudi businessman Mansour Kadasa, owner of the satellite station, Al-Nas; Egyptian Sheikh Muhammad Hassan; former presidential candidate, Hazim Salih Abu Isma’il…”

“Egypt: Back to the Intifada
The crackdown could usher in the most violent radicalization of the Arab world since the Palestinian uprisings. Obama Own's This He Should Have Left It Alone But He Wanted Muslim Brother Hood His Brother Was One He Still Is Sending Our Millions Why!
By Michael Hirsh
As the Egyptian military consolidates control by murdering pro-Muslim Brotherhood protesters and declaring a state of emergency, we may be witnessing the most dangerous potential for Arab radicalization since the two Palestinian intifadas. Despite the resignation Wednesday of Mohamed ElBaradei, the vice president, in opposition to the Egyptian junta's U.S. and West do nothing, the actions of the Egyptian military could de-legitimize democratic change in the Arab world for a generation or more.
And for Washington, a dream that began with the neoconservative push to turn Iraq into a "model democracy" after the 2003 invasion—the somewhat naïve Western hope that the Arab nations would catch up with the rest of the world—may already be dead. Worse, the loss of moderate Islamist alternatives, and the failure of democracy, could supply al-Qaida with its biggest recruiting campaign since 9/11.”
CNN spent an hour of prime time Tuesday night to air a special anchored by Erin Burnett, “The Truth about Benghazi.”
Do those developments really support the conclusion that the aftermath of Benghazi was all about election-year politics, and no one should be held responsible? Those assertions also resemble the conclusions of the Accountability Review Board, chaired by retired Ambassador Thomas Pickering and now widely regarded as a whitewash. You may remember that no one over at State walked the plank or was even seriously disciplined as a result of all Mr. Pickering’s fact-finding.
Cynical observers such as, say, Rep. Darrell E. Issa have even voiced suspicions that the main purpose of the board was to provide political cover for State Department bureaucrats and their esteemed then-secretary, Hillary Rodham Clinton. To ensure scrupulous objectivity, CNN even interviewed Mr. Issa – but mostly asked him about the use of Benghazi as a Republican fundraiser or – even worse – a poison pill against a future presidential run by Mrs. Clinton.
CNN was bold enough to air a special on Benghazi – another of the “phony scandals” President Obama again criticized during a campaign-style appearance on Tuesday. However, why would the network – purporting to set out the whole truth on the tragedy – somehow overlook the work of its own reporter, Jake Tapper”
“Newtown Residents Have A Funny Way Of Supporting Gun Control
“Newtown police have received 209 permit requests through Aug. 8, according to CNN, already exceeding the 171 permits requested in 2012. In 2011, the town received a total of 99 gun permit requests.”
However, the media doesn’t seem to want to admit that preventing crime or harm from crime motivates the acquisition of the means of defense. Rather, the massacre hasn’t caused the rise in gun applications, but rather the law itself has done so:
“The spike appears to be driven by fear of the state's new gun control laws…”
Really? Did you interview a large enough sample to make that determination?
Wall Street Journal, plainly states that he wants guns not because a law is saying he can’t have one, but because he really thinks he needs one for personal defense.
Furthermore, this is a state law. So why is the story only about Sandy Hook? Have other townships seen just as much an increase in applications to acquire firearms? Nothing is said about that. Instead, the same story admits:
“The uptick in gun sales, or potential gun sales, following a mass shooting is nothing new. According to the FBI, background checks for gun purchases increased in Arizona and Colorado following the mass shootings in Tucson and Aurora.”
“It should also be noted that Obama said, “No, I do not think Mr. Snowden is a patriot.”
If you’re frustrated by this lack of detail, you’re not alone. He still has not answered the most pressing questions about why its ok to broadly spy on Americans, or any of the details surrounding the leaks. Hopefully those will be answered with this reforms..We Just Can't Trust Obama!”
