Illinois State Rep. Angered After Being Pelosi'd



Here’s some passion for you. Illinois State Rep. Mike Bost went ballistic on the House floor. Apparently, a committee passed a pension bill earlier that day, and then the majority pulled a Nancy Pelosi. They forced a vote before anyone could read it.

“Total power in one person’s hands – not the American way!” Bost began.

“These damn bills that come out here all the damn time, come out here at the last second!” Bost added as he threw papers. “I’ve got to figure out how to vote for my people!”

“You should be ashamed of yourselves! I’m sick of it!” he went on. “Every year! We give power to one person! It was not made that way in the Constitution! He was around when it was written! Now we give him – we’ve passed rules that stop each one of us! Enough! I feel like somebody trying to be released from Egypt! Let my people go!”

Indeed, Rep. Mike Bost. Indeed.

Obama's Official White House Portrait Should be in Velvet



Can’t the campaigner-in-chief put aside politics for one day? During the portrait unveiling ceremony, honoring former President George W. Bush and his first lady, the Anointed One once again demonstrated his low character.

"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 did note the Bush tried to get it right. "Still, over those 2 1/2 months, in the midst of that crisis, President Bush, his cabinet, his staff, many of you who are here today, went out of your ways--George, you went out of your way--to make sure that the transition to a new administration was a seamless as possible. President Bush understood that rescuing our economy was not just a Democratic or Republican issue, it was an American priority. I'll always be grateful for that."

When they unveil Obama’s official portrait, I hope it’s in velvet, because that would aptly describe his low character and presidency.

Lord Bloomberg Makes Another Ban in His Five Borough Fiefdom

Michael Bloomberg, the Lord and Master of the Five Boroughs, has proclaimed from on high a new mandate to fight obesity. The mayor wants to ban large sugary drinks in targeted venues:

New Yorkers and elected officials alike are weighing in on Mayor Michael Bloomberg's plan to ban sweetened drinks larger than 16 fluid ounces from nearly all city restaurants, movie theaters and food carts, but not grocery stores and convenience stores. NY1's Grace Rauh filed the following report.


If Mayor Bloomberg gets his way, and it looks like he will, large sodas and other sugary drinks will be a thing of the past, at least at restaurants, movie theaters, cafes, and stadiums across the five boroughs.

Under the mayor's proposed plan, drinks at these locations would not be over 16 ounces. If businesses break the rule, they'll be hit with a $200 fine

Thomas Farley, the city's health commissioner, said the measure is a new way to fight obesity. He estimates that over 60 percent of New Yorkers are overweight.

This isn’t the first time New York’s Lord and Protector banned legal products from the public square. Bloomberg outlawed cigarette smoking in parks and public places. He waged a war on restaurants that used salt and transfats. He ultimately had sixteen manufactures and vendors alter their recipes in order to accommodate his strange obsession with other peoples eating habits.

Bloomberg the Control Freak isn’t satisfied lording over the sheeple in his fiefdom. He’s tried to expand his territory by making demands on others outside of his jurisdiction. Mr. Busybody used $1.5 million of NYC tax money to fund a sting operation on private gun owners in Ohio, Nevada and Tennessee.


And just recently, Bloomberg the Great suggested the federal government force cities to accept illegal aliens. Notice how this statist bastard makes no distinction between illegal and legal immigrants:

“There’s no reason why you have to have a common immigration policy for all of America,” he argued. “You could let each state do it differently.

“I would argue the federal government should go one step further. They should deliberately force some places that don’t want immigrants to take them, because that’s the only solution for these big, hollowed-out cities where industry has left and is never going to come back unless you get some people to move there.”

Bloomberg caused a ruckus last year during an appearance on “Meet the Press,” where he proposed opening the door to immigrants on the condition that they agree to live in Detroit for five to 10 years, restoring that struggling city by starting new businesses.

As he often does, Bloomberg blamed Democrats and Republicans alike for the immigration mess. Only this time, he took a dig directly at Obama.

“There are no heroes here,” he concluded. “Today, with a liberal Democratic administration in Pennsylvania Avenue, we are deporting more people than the last four or five presidents put together.”

Lord Bloomberg has a god complex that’s worse than Barack Obama’s. Heaven forbid he ever obtains national office.










Planned Parenthood is a Federally Protected OutLaw Organization

The arrogance of Planned Parenthood is something to behold. In fiscal year ending June 30, 2008, they received $349.8 million in taxpayer monies. Individual states have tried to deny this organization their citizens’ largess, but federal judges have ruled that this entity has special considerations over all others. And since the courts have conferred special status unto this abortion provider, they feel free to break all sorts of laws. Just recently, Planned Parenthood was busted for promoting gendercide:




Planned Parenthood is a 501 (c) (3) organization. That tax exempt status limits their political activities. Here is an excerpt from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops website defining what political activities are allowed under a 501 (c) (3):

What does section 501(c)(3) of the IRC say about political campaign activity?Section 501(c)(3) of the IRC prohibits organizations that are exempt from federal income tax under its provisions, including Catholic organizations exempt under the USCCB Group Ruling, from participating or intervening in political campaigns on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for public office. IRS interprets this prohibition as absolute.


What is the difference between lobbying and political campaign intervention?In the most basic terms, lobbying focuses on legislation, whereas political campaign intervention focuses on candidates and campaigns for election. Lobbying includes both direct lobbying and grassroots lobbying. Direct lobbying means contacting members of a legislative body, whether federal, state, or local, for the purpose of proposing, supporting, or opposing legislation or advocating the adoption or rejection of legislation. Grassroots lobbying means urging members of the public to do the same. Section 501(c)(3) limits the amount of lobbying a Catholic organization can do; it does not prohibit lobbying outright. The lobbying limitation applies both to lobbying that is germane to an organization's tax-exempt purpose and to lobbying that is not. [See: Treas. Reg. § 1.501(c)(3)-1(c)(3)(ii); Rev. Rul. 67-293, 1967-2 C.B. 185.]


What kinds of activities are prohibited generally under section 501(c)(3)?Under the rubric participation in or intervention in any political campaign on behalf of or opposition to any candidate for public office, section 501(c)(3) prohibits a range of activities, generally including: statements, in any medium, of support or opposition for any candidate, political party or political action committee (“PAC”); providing or soliciting financial support to or for any candidate, political party or PAC; providing or soliciting in-kind support to or for any candidate, political party or PAC; distribution of voter education materials biased with respect to any candidate, political party or PAC; conduct of public forums, debates or lectures biased with respect to any candidate, political party or PAC; and conduct of voter registration or get-out-the-vote drives biased with respect to any candidate, political party or PAC.



With that in mind, Planned Parenthood has earmarked over $1 million for anti-Romney campaign ads:

(CBS News) The political arm of Planned Parenthood on Wednesday announced a new $1.4 million ad campaign against Mitt Romney, the most ambitious foray into presidential politics for the women's health care organization.

Rolled out simultaneously with Planned Parenthood Action Fund's endorsement of President Obama's re-election bid, the new ad campaign hits the presumptive Republican nominee for his views on women's health issues, calling them "out of touch" and "harmful."

You’d think that Planned Parenthood would lose its tax exempt status after that, but I’m sure they would find another federal judge to confer more special rights and privileges unto this rogue organization.

Wisconsin Public Employees Flee Democratic Succubus Machine

Wisconsin has been liberated! Public employees have been freed. Their shackles have been cast aside as they stagger from the union machine. More than half of their numbers have wandered into the light as they squint and shield their eyes from the brightness of a new day.

Public-employee unions in Wisconsin have experienced a dramatic drop in membership -- by more than half for the second-biggest union -- since a law championed by Republican Gov. Scott Walker sharply curtailed their ability to bargain over wages and working conditions.

That could mean the sharp losses that some Wisconsin public-worker unions have experienced is a harbinger of similar unions' future nationwide, union leaders fear. Failure to oust Mr. Walker and overturn the Wisconsin law "spells doom," said Bryan Kennedy, the American Federation of Teachers' Wisconsin president.

Wisconsin membership in the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees-the state's second-largest public-sector union after the National Education Association, which represents teachers-fell to 28,745 in February from 62,818 in March 2011, according to a person who has viewed Afscme's figures. A spokesman for Afscme declined to comment.


The Democratic Party succubus has been beaten down. And coming next week, the emaciated voters of Wisconsin will slay this life sucking beast.

Obama's Green Energy "Bain" Failures



Obama and his minions would have everyone believe that Bain Capital is the Achilles heel of Mitt Romney. But what these statist bastards overlook is the failed green energy “investments” of Obama’s DOE. They are the "bane" of his administration.

Dinosaur Media Defends Illegal Aliens and Modern Day Slavery

Here we are again, reading another brain dead op-ed piece about how terrible Americans are for wanting tougher immigration laws. And of course, the Charlotte Observer couldn’t pass up the chance to reprint this tripe. The state of Alabama has once again passed another law designed to prohibit illegal immigration by shaming the “undocumented.” The dinosaurs in print media couldn’t wait to beat this piƱata.

Under the revised law, known as HB 658, all undocumented immigrants who appear in court for any violation of state law will find their names published on the official state website, along with the names of the judges assigned to their cases and the dispositions. It’s hard to imagine what useful purpose such information might provide other than to shame immigrants and to allow anti-immigrant groups to exert pressure on judges.

Another new provision requires the state’s Department of Homeland Security to compile an annual progress report updating the Legislature on how efforts to rid Alabama of illegal immigrants are coming along. That will make little difference in the life of most Alabamians, since less than 2 percent of the state’s residents are believed to be in the country illegally.

Since when did illegal aliens become Alabamians? Just because one resides in a state does not automatically confer citizenship. But that is what the communist at these rags would have you believe. To them illegal aliens are just undocumented immigrants entitled to the same rights and privileges as an American. Is it any wonder that we are in a state of decline, when no one values citizenship? And that is exactly the mentality of these communist who run these papers.

The shamelessness continues:

But state Sen. Scott Beason and state Rep. Micky Hammon chose to ignore the more moderate voices, including law enforcement groups and farmers, who rightfully worry that the law is harming, not helping, the state. Those fears are well-founded. Since the law was passed, growers have reported labor shortages that have led to rotting crops and financial losses.

Sadly, the Alabama Legislature once again proved itself incapable of embarrassment. How else can it say the revisions were needed to protect residents and save jobs? The only thing lawmakers and the governor achieved with HB 658 was to add another dark chapter to Alabama’s troubled history.





Now, mind you this editorial originated out of the Los Angeles Times. California has a history of illegals running roughshod over that state. And with an illegal trade comes illegal activity. And what could be more reprehensible than slavery? Alabama hasn’t had slaves since it was banned by the Thirteenth Amendment; yet, it continues on in states like California:

The Morales, both natives of the Philippines, pleaded guilty last May to conspiracy to harbor illegal aliens. The Morales, who operated four elder care facilities under the umbrella of “Four M’s, Inc.,” admitted that they recruited Filipino nationals to come to the United States with promises of work as live-in caregivers. A co-conspirator in the Philippines helped the aliens obtain fraudulent visas that allowed them to travel to the United States. After they arrived, “some of the aliens worked alone in 24-hour shifts…as caregivers at one of the Four M’s elder care residential facilities for less than minimum wage,” according to plea agreements filed in this case.

“All of the aliens lived in the care facilities, and some of the aliens slept in a closet, on a sofa, and in a walled-off portion of an unheated, attached garage.” The aliens’ pay was credited against the “debt” they purportedly owed, and the aliens were told that police or immigration authorities would be summoned if they attempted to leave.

“The victims in this case were rescued after a concerned member of the community reported the tragic working and living conditions to officials,” said Steven Martinez, Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s Los Angeles Field Office. “The FBI will continue to spread awareness by educating the community on how to identify the signs of labor exploitation, and urges the public to report suspected cases of illegal harboring or human trafficking.”

Liberals seldom take into consideration the ramifications of their actions. They’re too busy lecturing us, while betraying their community and country.

Rep. Paul Ryan School House Rocks Austan Goolsbee



Rep. Paul Ryan schools Austan Goolsbee on Bain Capital. The rock star congressman from Wisconsin embarrassed the former Obama economics advisor. Here are some interjections that the Goolsman probably used after the show:

Hey! That’s not fair. Ouch! That hurt. Darn! I’m an idiot.


The Anointed One Wins by a Nose in Kentucky's Democratic Downs

It’s a sunny day here in Kentucky. Reports of a possible storm sometime during this race may hamper the mood at Democratic Downs. We’re seeing a decent turnout here at the primary race. The pimps, whores, hustlers, and general riff-raff that make up the DNC have crowded the infield, waiting for post time.

The candidates are approaching the gate, as we wait for what most consider a perfunctory leg to the eventual crowning of the Anointed One. The candidates are in the gate. And now we await the bell.

And they're off! The Anointed One sprints out of the gate. Uncommitted close on his heels. The Anointed One is laughing and mocking the field. This could be a cake walk. But wait. Here comes Uncommitted! Uncommitted is making his move! Uncommitted is gaining in the backstretch! Uncommitted is pulling even!

The Anointed One is driving Uncommitted in the rails. His jockey Main Stream Media is whipping Uncommitted. This should be a disqualifier folks! Uncommitted is faltering! Uncommitted is falling back! And the Anointed One wins by a nose.

We are waiting for confirmation from the booth. What a disgrace. Main Stream Media again used reprehensible, if not illegal tactics to win another race. It should be a disqualifier. Wait, here is the decision. And of course, the Anointed One is the winner.

The owners of the Anointed One are breathing a sigh of relief. The Democratic Party, a well established farm known for fixing races, are beaming with pride.

Let’s listen in on the jockey and the owners of the Anointed One in the winner’s circle.

Main Stream Media: “It was a close race. Uncommitted came out of nowhere. He is an unknown quantity. I’m pretty sure he and his team is bunch of racist. There can be no other explanation on how this guy got so close to our thoroughbred.”

A voter ask, “What about the whipping? Shouldn’t the Anointed One be disqualified for that?”

Mainstream Media indignantly responds, “Eric Holder is the judge of this race. And he has determined that we are the winners. Besides, Uncommitted and his team are just a bunch of racist, undeserving of any consideration.”

And there you have it folks. The Anointed One once again wins another questionable race.

Anderson Cooper Destroys Obama Spokesman on Bain Capital


Anderson Cooper destroyed a Barack Obama campaign spokesman on this Bain Capital nonsense. What's going on in the mainstream media? Why are we witnessing rare moments of journalism? What are we to make of this?

I’m beginning to sense that the MSM feels ashamed of themselves, much like a slut after a one night stand. We’ve all seen them sleeking into their cars on a Sunday morning; hair disheveled; dress wrinkled, and their panties waded in their purse; the blush of shame on their face.

Never again. Isn’t that right MSM?

Yeah, right.

Occupiers Plan on Turning Charlotte, NC into a Harlot

Hey Charlotte, are you looking forward to the Democratic National Convention? Well, so is a bunch of other people. The anarchist, communist, hippies and general guttural trash who are now defiling Chicago are casting a ravenous eye on the Queen City’s bloomers. The syphillic 99% plan on turning our fair Charlotte into a harlot.

Here is a taste of what we can expect:

But around 6 p.m. a small band of protesters believed to be anarchists clashed with police and reportedly threw bricks and other objects at officers, injuring one. Officers outnumbered protesters and dragged several away.

Officers wore riot helmets and made a show of force as they used batons to force a crowd of unruly protesters who refused to leave in another direction.

The confrontation came one day after demonstrators clashed with police. Saturday night, several hundred people marched in front of landmark buildings and through residential neighborhoods, blocking buses and other motorists.

The events are significant to Charlotte because protest groups are planning to converge on the city en masse hoping to cast media attention on issues ranging from economic inequality and war to the environment.

Let’s get this straight. These kids don’t have a job; yet, they can afford to travel around the country protesting. They’re against war; but throw bricks at police and destroy small businesses in their wake. They’re environmentalist, but trash every city they occupy.

I have to ask? Are these people schizophrenic?

Charlotte, you are in over your head. Here are some lyrics from an Iron Maiden song that describes what’s going to happen to our fair city:


Beat her, mistreat her

Do anything that you please

Bite her, excite her

Make her get down on her knees

Abuse her, misuse her

She can take all that you've got

Caress her, molest her

She always does what you want


You're running away

Don't you know what you're doing?

Can't you see it'll lead you to ruin?

Charlotte you've taken your life

And you've thrown it away


Well, a city can't throw it's life away, but it sure can destroy the lives of others by inviting a bunch of degenerates into town.

Who Knew That a Charlotte Observer Editor Was a Tea Partier?




There are times when I read a Charlotte Observer editorial and my jaw drops from the outright hypocrisy of that paper. I have to wonder if there is genetic mutation in a liberal’s brain that inhibits decency and common sense. Taylor Batten at the Disturber is the epitome of a clueless liberal.

I cannot think of one federal boondoggle that Mr. Batten hasn’t been in favor of. And as I write this, I am reminded of every interventionist federal program this editor has advocated. But after reading his latest, you’d thought this man was president of a Tea Party organization. And we all know what Taylor Batten thinks of them.

A few months ago, the editors at the Disturber pleaded Erskine Bowles to run for governor of North Carolina. It was embarrassing. They thought the bespectacled one was the savior the of Tar Heel state. Now, they’ve likening him to a Cassandra; or in this case, John Parke of the Johnstown flood fame:

Erskine Bowles is a little like John Parke, if legend is true. Both warned of impending disaster, only to be ignored. In Parke’s case, it led to 2,209 deaths. In Bowles’, it could lead to the dwindling of a great nation.

On May 31, 1889, heavy rain poured on western Pennsylvania, and a dam holding back Lake Conemaugh threatened to collapse. Parke, an engineer, rushed on horseback to the telegraph office in the town of South Fork to alert area residents. The story goes that, after years of false alarms about the dam breaking, Johnstown residents disregarded Parke’s warnings. Hours later, 20 million tons of water demolished the town.

Today, Bowles can relate. A Charlotte resident and former co-chairman of a presidential commission on the deficit, Bowles persists in sounding the alarm that America’s fiscal dam is about to burst. Congress and President Obama ignore him, even as 20 million tons of red ink barrel toward them, and us
.

Hey, Mr. Batten. Must I remind you that the tea party movement started in early 2009 because of outrageous spending and bailouts? And what is really galling is that you and your fellow socialist at the Charlotte Observer were cheerleaders for this waste.


However, Mr. Batten did have a lucid moment at the end of his editorial:

So far, so good on the speech. But this is where Bowles’ remarks lost touch with reality. He urged the students to “force these politicians in both parties to deal with these problems and deal with them now.

“If you all can get these politicians to put partisanship aside and pull together rather than pull apart, the future of this country is very bright. … But I’m equally sure that if we continue to kick the can down the road, duck the tough choices, shirk our responsibilities, that America is well on its way to becoming a second-rate power. Please don’t let this happen.”

Gulp. If President Obama is willing to ignore his own commission, and both parties in Congress dismiss a sound plan from their own colleagues, we better hope we’re not relying on the graduates of American University’s School of Public Affairs to persuade them to save the country.

On the other hand, there’s an important kernel of truth in Bowles’ admonition. The politicians will continue to stall until voters extract a political price from them for doing so. The Obama-Romney campaign, the 2012 congressional elections and the pending expiration of the Bush-Obama tax cuts create an opportunity for American voters of both parties to insist that we get serious about taking our medicine.


The medicine that Mr. Bowles prescribes isn’t the answer. What this patient needs is major surgery. The progressives fundamentally altered our Constitution. In doing so, the federal government has bestowed more power unto itself while turning the states into a vassalage. The states no longer have a say in budgetary matters, or on federal policies that directly affect them and their citizens.

There is one way to regain control over that cesspool in Washington D.C. and that is repealing the 17th Amendment. The states must have the power of advocacy in the Senate; and more importantly the right of revocation if their appointees refuse to look out after their interest.

But that kind of decentralization runs counter to populist like Taylor Batten. And so it will be politics as usual until we become another Greece.

Pleasure Police Want to Tax Your Twinkies

The authoritarians love studies, particularly those that depict people as a bunch of slobbering idiots, bumbling through life costing the government, and ostensibly YOU money. And what’s even more galling is having a foreign interloper dictate health policy to Americans. A British medical journal has determined that we Yanks are a bunch of sorry, fat slobs. Here is an excerpt from USNews.com:

With more than two thirds of adults overweight or obese, America is certainly straining the
scales—but we're not the only ones. Countries around the world are trying everything to solve their own obesity epidemics, even if it hits their people's wallets

Several countries, including Hungary and Denmark, have implemented nominal "fat
taxes" on unhealthy foods, France has an extra tax on sweetened drinks, and Peru plans to implement a junk food tax in coming months. But a new paper released Tuesday in the British Medical Journal says that in order for such taxes to be effective, they have to make consumers dig deep—only "fat taxes" of 20 percent or more are likely to have broad societal impacts.

Proponents argue that junk foods are vices like alcohol and tobacco, which both have large taxes attached to them in many countries.

The USNews.com reporter went on to laud sin taxes and sanctions against tobacco companies as an example of correcting human behavior. It’s true that cigarette smoking has greatly declined in the past decade. But is that necessarily due to punitive taxes, or a changing attitude to a nasty and smelly habit?

What is missing in this report is the correlation between the current “obesity epidemic” and the decline of cigarette smoking. However, a neurobiologist has made that connection. Here is an excerpt along with accompanying graphs from his blog (see link below):

The main active ingredient in cigarettes is nicotine. Nicotine acts by binding to a specific type of receptor on neurons (nerve cells) called the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor. Acetylcholine is one of the main signaling molecules (neurotransmitters) that neurons use to communicate with one another. Nicotine suppresses food intake, increases energy expenditure, and lowers body fatness. Smokers tend to be leaner than non-smokers, even though they usually have a cluster of unhealthy lifestyle habits (2, 3), and they rapidly gain weight when they quit (4, 5). Administering nicotine to rodents under controlled conditions also reduces food intake and body weight substantially (6).


Since the brain (and particularly the hypothalamus) is the organ in charge of regulating food intake and body fatness, one might guess that nicotine acts there either directly or indirectly. As predicted, nicotine infused directly into the hypothalamus reduces food intake (7), and a recent high-impact paper demonstrated in mice that nicotine exerts its effects on food intake primarily via POMC cells, a type of neuron in the hypothalamus that is important for the regulation of food intake and body fatness (8).






He concludes:

Public health authorities have been waging a war on cigarette smoking since it was firmly established as a risk factor for a number of serious conditions (e.g., cancer and heart attacks)*. There's no doubt that regularly smoking cigarettes is bad for your health-- in fact it's probably one of the most unhealthy habits there is. However, smoking kept us leaner than we should have been in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, likely preventing the gradual changes in the US diet and lifestyle from exerting their full effect on our waistline. As the appetite suppressive effects of cigarettes went away, and our diet became increasingly commercialized, per capita daily calorie intake increased by about 20 percent, and the adult obesity rate doubled.

Of course, this doesn’t explain the recent phenomenon of childhood obesity. But it shouldn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out why kids are fat. Drive through a neighborhood. Do you see any kids playing pickup games such as baseball or football? How about kick-the-can or hide and seek? Do you see any kids playing outside? I contend the main reason kids are fat is because they get no exercise. Medical News Today pointed out the obvious:

Lack of physical activity found to be the most significant factor in contributing to childhood obesity. Researchers assessed the exercise and eating habits of nearly 900 children who were either at risk of becoming overweight or were already considered overweight. They also documented how often the children watched television.

Results of the study show a lack of vigorous physical activity is the main contributor to obesity for adolescents between 11 and 15 years old.


The food police would have everyone believe that we Americans sit around in our squalor, wiping our Cheetos stained fingers on our holey tee-shirts, drinking copious amounts of soda, while belching our way to a blissful diabetic coma. As glamorous as that may sound, it simply isn’t true. Sure, we may be a little overweight. And some may have health problems, but that sure as hell is no excuse for the pleasure police to dictate how we should live our lives.

Facebook Co-Founder Would Rather be Caned Than Pay Capital Gains Taxes

What is the value of an American citizenship these days? To thousands of ex-patriots, their membership in this country is more of a liability than a privilege. And who can blame them. We have politicians who demonize the producers, while catering to the teat squawkers. We have millions of illegal aliens who leech off of the taxpayers, while demanding we learn their language and cater to their needs. Why would anyone value citizenship in a country that doesn’t value their citizens?

Facebook co-founder, Eduardo Saverin renounced his American citizenship before his company announced its planned initial public offering. He did this in order to evade paying capital gains taxes. And guess where he plans on moving to: Singapore. That’s right. He would rather move to a country that canes people for petty crimes than stay in the United States. American citizenship isn’t what it used to be. But you’d think it would be better than a country who canes people. Here is a dissident describing a caning experience:

Singapore's laws today permit the state to beat you the prescribed number of strokes with a rattan cane, soaked previous night in brine or water to make it supple. Sentences for various offences, usually violent crimes (which includes even pickpocketing) but even minor ones like painting graffiti, carries this unimaginably brutal punishment, whose beating (caning) is in addition to the prison term the prisoner has to suffer.


The beater or the caner is a prison officer specially trained to beat people, the object being to inflict the maximum amount of pain on the prisoner. While strapped to a gurney, naked with his buttock exposed, the officer who carries out the torture, takes a couple of steps and swings his cane hard, very hard, with full force at the prisoners buttocks.


By reason of his training, the caning is so forceful and the velocity of the swing so great, that it is reported that on one beating alone, the cane digs deep into the flesh, and even pieces of bloodied flesh hang out. There is so much blood on the floor from these beatings that after one or 2 stokes, the beating is interrupted for the bloodied floor to be mopped and the blood removed, after which the beatings resume.


I think you get the picture. I don't wish to say more.



Say what you will about Singapore. At least they value citizenship. Here is what happened to an American who overstayed his visa:



Kamari Charlton was arrested on Sept 1 when he attempted to leave the city-state 169 days

after his 90-day social visit pass expired, his lawyer M. Ravi said.

Mr Charlton, who was born in the Bahamas and owns a construction company there, was in Singapore while his wife received medical care for pregnancy complications, Mr Ravi said. It was not clear why Mr Charlton and his wife chose Singapore for medical treatment.

Staying in Singapore for more than 90 days after the end of a visa is punishable with a maximum jail term of six months and at least three cane strokes.

The Attorney General’s office declined to comment on the case. A judge is to meet with lawyers from both sides in a pretrial conference on Friday.

If found guilty, Mr Charlton would be the first American citizen caned in Singapore since 1994, when teenager Michael Fay was punished for vandalism.

Let the caning begin! You can’t say Singapore doesn’t value their citizenship. I wonder what would happen if we implemented their policies. I bet there would be a line stretching from Mexico all the way to Wyoming.

Instead, we have politicians like Sen. Chuck Schumer who are more interested in fleecing the likes of an Eduardo Saverin rather than keeping them as citizens. Here is a genius solution to the ex-patriot problem:

At a news conference this morning, Sens. Schumer and Bob Casey, D-Pa., will unveil the “Ex-PATRIOT” – “Expatriation Prevention by Abolishing Tax-Related Incentives for Offshore Tenancy” – Act to respond directly to Saverin’s move, which they dub a “scheme” that would “help him duck up to $67 million in taxes.”

The senators will call Saverin’s move an “outrage” and will outline their plan to re-impose taxes on expatriates like Saverin even after they flee the United States and take up residence in a foreign country. Their proposal would also impose a mandatory 30 percent tax on the capital gains of anybody who renounces their U.S. citizenship.

The plan would bar individuals like Saverin from ever reentering the United States again.


Nice solution Sen. Chuck E. Schumer: Super Genius. Soon, he will advocate building the equivalent of a Berlin Wall around the country, so as to keep the producers from escaping.

Obama's Real Father is the Communist Frank Marshall Davis?




The main stream media is pathetic. They’ll publish a 5000 word story accusing Mitt Romney of bullying a homosexual 50 years ago – a story that no one can verify and has been disputed. Contrast that with their treatment of Barack Obama’s eligibility for the presidency. Double standard you say? It gets even better. Now we have another controversy that is even more sordid than his socialist, goat herding father from Kenya. A new report from The Blaze states that Obama’s father is the famed communist Frank Marshall Davis:

From the film’s description:

In Dreams from My Real Father, Barack Obama is portrayed by a voiceover actor who chronicles Barack Obama’s life journey in socialism, from birth through his election to the Presidency. The film begins by presenting the case that Barack Obama’s real father was Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist Party USA propagandist who likely shaped Obama’s world view during his formative years. Barack Obama sold himself to America as the multi-cultural ideal, a man who stood above politics. Was the goat herding Kenyan father only a fairy tale to obscure a Marxist agenda, irreconcilable with American values.




U.S. Senate Foils Obama's Joker Budget

Another Obama budget went down in flames. Not one senator voted for this joke. I’m surprised it made it to the floor. And after this monstrosity was defeated, the democrats denied it was the Anointed Ones:

President Obama's budget suffered a second embarrassing defeat Wednesday, when senators voted 99-0 to reject it.

Coupled with the House's rejection in March, 414-0, that means Mr. Obama's budget has failed to win a single vote in support this year.

Republicans forced the vote by offering the president's plan on the Senate floor.

Democrats disputed that it was actually the president's plan, arguing that the slim amendment didn't actually match Mr. Obama's budget document, which ran thousands of pages. But Republicans said they used all of the president's numbers in the proposal, so it faithfully represented his plan.

Sen. Jeff Sessions, Alabama Republican, even challenged Democrats to point out any errors in the numbers and he would correct them — a challenge no Democrats took up.

Obama’s minister of propaganda tried to downplay this humiliation:



How long is this country going to put up with these amateurs?

Obama Could Lose Arkansas Primary

What is going on in the democratic primaries? A federal prisoner from Texas garnered a sizeable amount of the vote in West Virginia and has a delegate at the convention. Now, a Tennessee lawyer is running in Arkansas and could possibly defeat the Anointed One:

In an interview with THE WEEKLY STANDARD, Wolfe said the poll results were “unbelievable” and said a defeat for Obama in the Arkansas primary would be “politically cataclysmic.”

“It says the momentum is good,” Wolfe said about the poll. “This is democracy in action."

Wolfe predicted that the voters would move his way in the final days before the May 22 primary, despite his shoestring campaign budget. “There’s not been a single TV ad. There’s not been a single radio ad,” he said.

Wolfe is also competing against Obama in Texas’s May 29 primary.

Can you imagine if Mr. Wolfe wins both Arkansas and Texas? That feat alone should ensure a spot at the Democratic National Convention. I would DVR that speech. Maybe we can also get a video feed from federal inmate #11593-051, also known as Keith Russell Judd. Now that would be a convention for the ages.


Obama Losing the Love in North Carolina

The new Rasmussen Poll has Mitt Romney moving into a commanding lead in North Carolina. This after Obama endorsed same-sex marriage and basically pissed on a solid majority of voters who passed Amendment One:

Mitt Romney has moved out to an eight-point lead over President Obama in North Carolina after the two men were virtually tied a month ago.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the Tar Heel State shows the putative Republican nominee earning 51% of the vote to Obama’s 43%. Two percent (2%) like some other candidate, and four percent (4%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording,
click here.)

That’s a big change from
last month when Romney posted a narrow 46% to 44% lead over the president in Rasmussen Reports’ first survey of the race in North Carolina. Democrats have signaled North Carolina’s importance as a key swing state by deciding to hold their national convention in Charlotte this summer.

I believe it’s safe to say North Carolina is a swinger no more – much to the chagrin of the hedonist who plans on coming to Charlotte for the Democratic National Convention.

I hope that their stay here is SHORT and sweet. By the way democrats, be sure to pick up your gift basket of lotions and sexual devices at the service counter before you leave our state.



Joe Biden's Angry Dreams



Slow your roll, angry Joe. We get you. We understand. It’s not our fault that you’re angry and envious. We know that your dreams consist of fleecing others of their hard earned money, and lording your power over others. We get it.

Geez, somebody needs to take their meds.

Barack Obama: The First Imam of the United States

Can Barack Obama be considered America’s first Muslim president? A new book by Ed Klein entitled, “The Amateur” has brought this jihadist out of the shadows, and into the light. Here is an excerpt from an interview published by Newsmax that outs the first Imam of the United States:



Klein says Obama originally sought out Wright to discuss community activism.

“Quickly the conversations turned from picking up garbage on the street and getting streetlights put up on street corners to political matters and religious matters,” Klein says. “And the Rev. Wright turned into really a substitute father figure, who guided Obama in the two major areas of his life.”

The first area was Obama’s identity — just who was he?

“Obama was steeped in Islam but knew nothing about Christianity,” Klein says.

Klein asked Wright if he converted Obama from being a Muslim into a Christian.

“He said, I don’t know about that. but I can tell you that I made it easy for him to come to an understanding of who Jesus Christ is and not feel that he was turning his back on his Islamic friends and his Islamic traditions and his understanding of Islam,” Klein says.

The second area was Obama’s political philosophy. Wright introduced Obama to Black Liberation theology.

“Black Liberation theology is based essentially on the Marxist belief that there is an oppressor class and an oppressed class,” Klein says. “And in the case of Black Liberation theology, the oppressor class are the whites, and the oppressed are the blacks. And there is a ‘maldistribution’ of wealth in this country, a quote from Black Liberation theology.”

The point is that wealth should be redistributed.

“This is quite close, if not identical, to Marxist beliefs,” Klein says.

It has been well reported that our law enforcement and intelligence agencies have scrubbed any references to jihad and Islamic terrorism from their manuals and training courses. Glenn Beck has produced a video that documents the infiltration of the Muslim Brotherhood into the highest circles of our federal government. The overwhelming amount of evidence is clear: the Obama administration has betrayed America, and the charge of treason must be considered.

Non-Citizens Caught Voting in North Carolina



Project Veritas strikes again! This time the Tar Heel state was put under the microscope. And of course they exposed how easy it is to commit voter fraud. Hell, they even caught a non-citizen voting in the past two elections.


Hey! Charlotte Observer! This is how investigative reporting is done. Now it's time for you lazy good-for-nothings to get off your collective, liberal asses and do your jobs. But that would require a non-biased reporter. Is one even on the payroll?

Non-Citizens Caught Voting in Florida

For those critics who say voter fraud is a myth, here is a report out of Florida that should concern all citizens who value the sanctity of the ballot:

Officials have so far identified 2,600 suspect voters and passed their information on to local election boards.

“These are the people that we have to notify by mail that we have a reason to believe that they’re a non-citizen,” Christina White, Florida’s deputy supervisor of elections told Miami CBS affiliate
WFOR-TV.

A WFOR-Miami Herald analysis found that about 2,000 of the 180,000 voters under examination are registered in Miami-Dade County. The analysis found that a large number of those suspect voters may have cast ballots in the past — including in the 2000 presidential election, decided in Florida by just 500 votes.

The analysis also showed that one suspect person voted at least 30 times.

But according to the Progressives, we’re just trying to suppress the minority vote. Do legal non-citizens and illegal aliens qualify as a minority?

Progressives Call North Carolinians Un-Evolved for Passing Amendment One




The Progressives are aghast that 61% of North Carolina voters approved a constitutional amendment favoring traditional marriage. The common sneer from the so-called enlightened left is we hayseeds are un-evolved; we troglodytes are living in the past; and that we’re Jim Crow adherents stomping on the “rights” of gay people.

What is it about Progressives that give them a superior sense of being? And why do they denigrate traditional values? Is their utopian civilization built on the ashes of religious institutions?

One of the biggest proponents of traditional marriage is the church. This institution is the lynchpin of the family unit. Sweden exemplifies the simultaneous degradation of church and marriage. Here is an excerpt from a paper written by Professor Richard Tomasson at the University of New Mexico:

There are two forces that have sustained and enhanced the decline of marriage and the increase in nonmarital cohabitation in Sweden since the 1960s: secularization and the development of the comprehensive welfare state.

All major western religions have supported traditional marriage. When the authority of religious belief and its functionaries become diminished, traditional marriage loses one of its greatest institutional supports. In Sweden religious belief and practice and the role of organized religion in everyday life have declined to the lowest levels among modern societies. Weekly attendance at religious services has declined to the low single digits. Still, the large majority of the population continues membership in the Church of Sweden, a situation of "belonging but not believing." Most of the declining number of marriages are church weddings, a majority of children continue to be baptized and confirmed, and the great majority are buried by the Church.


The proponents of same sex marriage pooh-pooh the belief that their union would denigrate the institution itself. The Dutch experience would say otherwise, as reported by the National Review:

Since the start of the Dutch gay-marriage debate–in which gay-marriage activists successfully made the case for separating civil marriage from the legal rights and duties involved with the raising of children–the percentage of Dutch babies born out of wedlock has skyrocketed. As Stanley Kurtz has also pointed out (here and here), in the 15 years since the beginning of the long march toward gay marriage, the illegitimacy rate in the Netherlands has risen from 11 percent (1989) to over 31 percent (2003).

As it turns out, 1989–the year in which gay-marriage campaigners filed their first legal challenge to the existing marriage laws–is something of a tipping point in marriage statistics as well. Before that year, both the absolute number of marriages and the marriage rate (number of marriages per 1,000 people) were on an upward trend. Since 1989, however, that upward trend has turned into a downward slope, from more than 95,000 new marriages in the peak year 1990 to just over 82,000–including 1500 gay marriages–in 2003. This equals a decline in the marriage rate per 1,000 people from 6.4 at its peak in 1990 (out of a population of under 15 million) to just 5.1 in 2003.



Proponents of same sex marriage crow they are making strides for their purported goal of “equal rights.” They point to polls that show the public is coming around to their side. But at what cost? Are we to become just like Sweden and the Netherlands? Will Americans become permissive and secularized? The Progressives and their ACLU bullies have answered that question for us.

Gov. Beverly Perdue the "Progressive Belle" of N.C. Bemoans Loss of Hedonist Southeast




Governor Beverly Perdue is upset that North Carolinians overwhelmingly voted for passage of a state constitutional amendment that values traditional marriage. The one term politician thought the Tar Heel state should be more like San Francisco than Mississippi. Here is the “Progressive Belle” disparaging the hayseeds that infest her Hedon of the Southeast:






GREENVILLE, N.C. — Passage of a constitutional amendment defining marriage as solely between a man and a woman makes North Carolina "look like Mississippi," Gov. Beverly Perdue said Friday.

Perdue was in Greenville as part of her tour to tout her proposed state budget for 2012-2013. The governor was responding to a question on the amendment from a reporter from WITN-TV in Washington.

"I think it's wrong for North Carolina, clearly and simply," she said. "People around the country are watching us and they're really confused, to have been such a progressive, forward-thinking, economically driven state that invested in education and that stood up for the civil rights of people, including the civil rights marches back in the '50s and '60s and '70s.

"Folks are saying, 'What in the world is going on in North Carolina?' We look like Mississippi."

Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant took offense at Perdue's comment.

"I am certainly disappointed by Gov. Perdue's statement regarding North Carolina's 'looking like Mississippi,'" Bryant said in a statement. "Apparently, North Carolina's voters are much more in line with Mississippi's traditional values on marriage than those of Gov. Perdue."

The chairman of the Mississippi Republican Party also issued a statement, saying his state is proud to stand with those who voted for the amendment in North Carolina and people in other states who support traditional marriage.

"Gov. Perdue is obviously out of touch with the voters of her own state and is trying to change the subject by attacking Mississippi," Mississippi GOP chairman Joe Nosef said


Perdue is so out of touch that she didn’t bother to run for re-election. Nor will she share the spotlight at the Democratic National Convention in her own state. I ask who should be more ashamed: Governor Beverly Perdue of North Carolinians, or North Carolinians of Beverly Perdue.

I believe her absence in the governor’s mansion next year answers that question.

Washington Establishment Whistling Past Tea Party Graveyard

The Washington Beltway and their MSM lapdogs would have everyone believe that the tea party was an aberration, and the 2010 elections a fluke. Well it’s time for the establishment to stop whistling past the graveyard. The defeat of RINO Dick Lugar should send chills down their authoritarian spines. The tea party specter is alive and well. And to the horror of our wannabe lords and masters, the patriots have become well organized.

The Woodstock, Ga.-based Tea Party Patriots reported raising $12.2 million for the year ended May 31, 2011. That vaults them into the ranks of some of the most successful conservative activist groups, including FreedomWorks, the Club for Growth and Americans for Tax Reform.

Nonprofit organizations’ annual tax returns are lagging indicators, of course, and the political-fundraising landscape has been evolving rapidly. But the Tea Party Patriots’ success underscores the continuing – perhaps even growing – power of the tea party.

Much attention has been focused this election season on super PACs and nonprofits – some with ties to the tea-party movement – that are raising large sums, often from wealthy donors, and pouring it into campaign-themed advertising.

By contrast, the Tea Party Patriots and their affiliated groups are generally staying focused on the grassroots ground game – training, issue education, webinars and tele-town halls, and mobilizing of volunteers. The Patriots say they have 3,500 local affiliates, as well as a mailing list of 310,000 small-dollar donors. They also say they’ve raised even more money for the 2012 fiscal year, although they declined to provide numbers.

It’s brick-by-brick organization building, and the results aren’t easily measured. But the Patriots leaders say they’re creating a structure that will last.

At the same time, the Patriots and other tea party groups are maturing, holding fewer raucous rallies and doing more phone-banking.

That report should make the Potomac Potlickers quake in their boots. There will be no more politics as usual.


Progressives Want to Move Democratic National Convention Out of North Carolina

The Democratic Party are ruing the day they picked Charlotte, North Carolina to host their national convention. Yesterday, we hayseeds voted for a constitutional amendment that preserves the sanctity of marriage. This reaffirmation of American traditional values isn’t sitting right with “Progressives.”

Progressive forces are petitioning the Democratic Party to move its convention out of North Carolina in protest of the state’s recently enacted ban on gay marriage.

“In protest, the Democratic National Convention Committee should MOVE its convention (September 2012) to a state that upholds values of equality & liberty, and which treats ALL citizens equally,” the petition states.

Initiated by Gay Marriage USA, a gay rights advocacy group, the petition has already attracted 14,946 signatures on its way to an anticipated 20,000.

I hope they succeed. I don’t live too far from “uptown” and will be affected by this psycho circus. The last thing I want is a bunch of anti-American heathens destroying personal property and harassing the citizens of this city. As a matter of fact, if I thought it would keep this scum out of town, I would sign the damn petition myself.

A Federal Prisoner Gets a Delegate at the Democratic National Convention

This election cycle is going to be one for the ages. A federal prison inmate gave the Anointed One a run for his money in West Virginia. Keith Judd almost won the presidential primary race, and is entitled to a delegate at the Democratic National Convention.

An obscure federal prison inmate gave President Obama an unexpected run for his money in the West Virginia Democratic Primary Tuesday, highlighting the deep dislike for the president in the Appalachian heartland.

With 96% of the precincts reporting Tuesday night, Keith Judd was holding steady at 41% of the vote and had won ten counties.

Judd is also known as
federal prison inmate Number 11593-051 at the Beaumont Federal Correctional Institution in Beaumont, Texas, where Judd is serving a 210-month sentence for extortion and making threats at the University of New Mexico in 1999.

According to both state and national Democratic Party rules, Keith Russell Judd is entitled to receive at least one delegate from West Virginia for the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. because he received 15% of the vote.

Do the Democrats have any qualifying standards? What am I saying? Barack Obama’s presidency already answered that question.

Charlotte Observer Bemoans Passage of Traditional Marriage Amendment

Yesterday, the citizens of North Carolina joined thirty other states in amending its constitution, reaffirming traditional marriage. For those who are traditionally impaired, marriage means a union between one man and one woman.

Of course, the so-called Progressives are up in arms over this definitive alteration to our Constitution. They believe this act was unnecessary. We already have a law that prohibits same sex marriage. So what is the big deal?

Well leave it to the libtards at the Charlotte Observer to outline all sorts of preposterous scenarios. Here is one of them:

And judges might refuse to issue domestic violence protection orders in cases involving unmarried couples and throw out orders already issued. Under this amendment, North Carolina doesn’t appear to recognize them as having legally-defined personal relationships.

So the editors at the Charlotte Observer would have us believe that Amendment One prohibits restraining orders on non-married persons? Get real morons! Here is another gem from the Disturber:

Duke University professor Mike Munger told the Observer editorial board Tuesday that domestic partner benefits “clearly are in jeopardy.” Unmarried couples who get domestic partner insurance benefits from local governments could lose them. “It’s not clear it’s legal” under the amendment for the governments to offer them, Munger said. Chapel Hill, Durham, Greensboro, and Mecklenburg and Orange counties now provide health care benefits to domestic partners and their children.


Again this is quite simple, get married if you want benefits. Why should the taxpayers subsidize a public employee’s hedonistic lifestyle? And do they seriously believe children of an employee are going to be denied health care benefits? That is an absolutely fatuous statement.

Here is another example of perverse Progressive logic.

Proponents like Rep. Paul Stam, who has been the top legislative cheerleader for the amendment, have said the amendment isn’t likely to have those impacts. But in truth, they don’t know. That’s why many legal scholars expect the courts will adjudicate the matter. Some say the amendment itself is unconstitutional and is just inviting a federal lawsuit challenging its validity.

We hope there is a challenge to this misguided amendment. It was unnecessary. N.C. law has banned same-sex marriages since 1996. This change unwisely writes discrimination into the state constitution.


So if the constitutional amendment is prejudicial and discriminatory, wouldn’t logic render the preceding law the same? According to the Disturber, in their twisted way, the law against same sex marriage is a violation of gay and lesbians civil rights, and should have been challenged in a federal court. But somehow that conclusion didn’t make it into their commentary.

The interlopers at the Charlotte Observer are having a hard time with the poll results. Here is their partying shot at people who value traditional American values:

The state is on the wrong side of history on this matter. Most Americans are increasingly rejecting this type of prejudice against gays and lesbians. A new Gallup poll showed 50 percent of Americans believe same sex marriages should be recognized as legal, while 48 percent say such marriages should not be legal.

Unfortunately, for the commie/hedonist at the Charlotte Observer – 61% of North Carolinians overwhelmingly voted for Amendment One. And every state that has proposed a constitutional amendment upholding traditional marriage has passed it.

Maybe, the editors at the Disturber would feel more at home – let’s say – in San Francisco. Just saying.
