“If Dems control the Senate, Obama will pack the Supreme Court, and you can bet Harry Reid will go nuclear on it.

Former adult film actress Jenna Jameson nails the difference between the first tweets made by Gov. Mitt Romney and our Dear Leader, Barack Hussein Obama. They clearly show that one is a true leader with concern for America and has a real connection to the American people. The other is a sleazy political hack from Chicago.
The democrats’ War on Women is still in full frontal assault mode. As I have pointed out before, if you want to know what the left is up to, just review what they are accusing their opponents of.
The New York Times finally admits that the “Assault Weapon” scare was hoax, an attempt to bamboozle the American people, and that the 1994 semi-automatic rifle ban did nothing to reduce crime, violent crime, or crimes committed with a firearm.

“…the sheer “I won” in-your-face immaturity of the Obamaites — remember the “Hey, Hey, Goodbye” chant to Bush at the inauguration — ensured that people would be angrier than normal. And they did that on purpose because a sharply divided nation suited them politically. Now Ron Fournier wonders if Americans would rally behind Obama after another 9/11 the way we rallied behind Bush, and I think the answer is no — because Obama has spent his entire time in office flicking boogers at half the country.
As I’ve said before, the reason why presidents traditionally act “presidential” isn’t because they’re stiffly formal, it’s because acting presidential, rather than purely political, lets you appeal to the whole country in ways that a pure partisan can’t. Obama doesn’t care, and we may very well pay for that, too. But elections have consequences, and when you elect a guy like Obama, the consequences are bad ones.”

Reality can crack the leftist spin central of HuffPo every once in rare while. Former MA congresscritter and far left extremist (yes, I’m being redundant) Barney Frank is shocked to discover that our Dear Leader lied to the American People.
Nobody should be shocked to find out that Lois Lerner, of the Obama IRS department, who deliberately, and illegally, targeted conservative groups for unwarranted IRS investigations in order to deny them their constitutional first amendment rights, called those she targeted “crazies” and “a–holes.” What is even less shocking is that the so-called “mainstream” media doesn’t care.
Texas democrat Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee lied to the American people on the floor of congress. OK, to be fair, given her track record of underwhelming intellectual performance, she may have just not remembered that she was the co-sponsor of a bill to impeach President George W. Bush, that the democrats in the House passed.
On the international front, Japan gives Vietnam six navy ships amid regional tension. To put it more bluntly, the Japanese government is giving something other than a twitter hash tag to Communist China. By doing so, Japan demonstrates that it has more balls than Barack Hussein Obama, who is mostly phoning it in these days.
Going back to the domestic front, is it a real ‘crisis’ or merely a leftist talking point the democrats can use to steal money from the gullible rubes who wouldn’t recognize real science even it gave them frost bite.
Truesbury, a “…satiric re-imagining of Doonesbury as it would be if the Washington Post and G.D. Trudeau had as much fire in the belly for illuminating the transgressions of a Democrat White House as they did for one run by the GOP.”
“Never been a Romney fan. I actively dislike John McCain. Good grief, we’d be in so much better shape if either of them had been elected…”

When you point out that the current federal debt is $17.6 Trillion and climbing, far left democrat extremists are quick to point out that the deficit is down.
Which is true, but note that they don’t point out the deficit reduction is from a peak during Obama’s reign, but up from the time he took office.
Let’s look at the actual numbers.
The current federal deficit is $572.1 billion, with a federal tax revenue of $2.9 trillion. So Barry’s handling of the federal government is to spend over a half trillion dollars than he is taking in, even with the federal tax revenue at record high levels.
So what is that $572.1 trillion dollar deficit down from?
Let’s look at the federal deficit in 2012, after several years of Barry’s firm fiscal hand. it was at $1.1 Trillion. The federal tax income was $2.4 trillion. Do the math here kids. Our Dear Leader hasn’t reduced spending, he has jacked taxes through the roof. The deficit is down about $400 billion, and increase in federal tax income is up $500 million. So he has also increased federal spending instead of paying down the $17.6 trillion federal debt.
Let’s go back to 2008, near the end of two terms of President George W. Bush. The federal deficit was $408.1 Billion with a federal tax income of $2.5 trillion. Note that the deficit was in fact lower than it is currently, and that is with $400 billion less in federal tax revenue.
So when a democrat claims that the deficit is down, that person is is in fact, deliberately lying by omission. The federal deficit under Obama has gone up, despite squeezing nearly a additional half a trillion dollars out of the pockets of tax paying US citizens in an economy that can be politely described as “stagnant” at best.

Let’s start with a couple of RKBA related stories. The city of Chicago, were over 40 people shot and four killed last weekend, has to pay the NRA nearly $1 million in legal fees. A recent study shows that violent crime has gone down as conceal carry permits have been issued to more law abiding Americans. This makes sense to anyone capable of rational thought and basic logic. It makes moonbats go bat shit crazy though, since it doesn’t fit their far left extremist agenda.
A federal judge has tossed out a Obama administration request to have law suits against the IRS dropped. Legal action by nearly a dozen Tea Party groups targeted by the IRS can go forward. Expect more hard drive “crashes”.
First, let’s take a look at our Dear Leader’s former city of residence, Chicago. This is where he made his mark as a “community organizer”, found religion at Rev. Wright’s weekly sermons laced with hate speech, became a state senator, met and married his beard, and where the two daughters were born. In that tribute to over fifty years of straight democrat reign, more than 40 people were shot last weekend. That included four dead. One of which was an eleven year old girl at sleep over. In case you didn’t know this fact already, Chicago has some of the strictest “gun control” laws in the country. This illustrates why they are more accurately called “victim disarmament” laws.
We have learned that congressional subpoenas cause IRS hard drives to crash. The IRS’ refusal to supply information under subpoena has gotten so blatant, that even Lanny Davis, former Clinton spokes weasel, says it is time for special prosecutor. The count of IRS hard drives that crashed due to subpoena as seven. It just almost tripled.
It should not be a surprise to anyone paying attention, but the Obama White House knew of the upcoming flood of illegal aliens crossing the boarder well in advance. They didn’t do anything to avoid it. Remember their motto, “Never let a crisis go to waste.”
“The only way Putin is in danger from Obama, is if Putin is blocking the door to a fundraiser Obama’s late to get to.”

Let’s start with the BLS unemployment numbers.
The U3 number for June 2014 was 6.1%. Now if you were paying attention, you would know that there was a net gain of over 200,000 jobs in June. Which is generally a good thing, since it was about double what is needed to just offset population growth. Anemic growth by other recovery standards, but pretty damn good in the Obama economy. If you were paying attention to the details, you wouldn’t be popping the corks on the bubbly yet. Those 200,000 new jobs were part of the 700,000 new part time jobs, offset by a loss of 500,000 full time jobs. Yup, in the Obama economy, full time work with benefits is out, and wearing a name tag and asking, “Would you like fries with that?” is in.
It gets worse for minorities. They key democrat voting blocks of blacks, hispanics, and the ‘youth vote’ have gotten the nasty end of the shafting in the Obama economy. These are the official government June unemployment numbers from the BLS. Look ‘em up if you don’t believe ‘em.
Aged 16-19: 21.0%
You know that the overall 6.1% number is only so low because the feds have stopping counting more and more of the long term unemployed. “Not in the labor” force is at 92.2 million and still climbing. If they were added back in, that number would be comfortably in the double digits. So inflate the minority numbers by the same factor and you have 2 out of ten black Americans out of work.
Compare and contrast to the Reagan Recovery, where unemployment for minorities when down and their net income went up. To be honest, unemployment was down and net income was up for everyone. That is what you get when you have an economic policy geared for growth, rather than ‘income distribution.”
