Perhaps the majority of those who have opposed our Dear Leader since he first appeared on the national scene are right, he is dangerously incompetent, and is completely lacking in any private sector experience.

AP fact checks Obama’s speech and finds it comes up short on actual facts

Here is the fact checking article in full.  I’ll just list some of the highlights

Essentially, the jobs plan is an IOU from a president and lawmakers who may not even be in office down the road when the bills come due. Today’s Congress cannot bind a later one for future spending. A future Congress could simply reverse it.

THE FACTS: It’s hard to see how the program would not raise the deficit over the next year or two because most of the envisioned spending cuts and tax increases are designed to come later rather than now, when they could jeopardize the fragile recovery.

THE FACTS: Not all of the president’s major proposals are likely to yield quick job growth if adopted. One is to set up a national infrastructure bank to raise private capital for roads, rail, bridges, airports and waterways. Even supporters of such a bank doubt it could have much impact on jobs in the next two years because it takes time to set up.

Bottom line, our Dear Leader asked for more of his failed policies.  More and more of the American people, especially registered voters, are seeing the truth behind his rhetoric.

The Chinatown Death Cloud Peril by Paul Malmont

The book is crack for pulp fans. Really, I’m not kidding. The heroes include Lester and Norma Dent, Walter Gibson, L. Ron Hubbard, Robert Heinlein and a merchant ship working cowboy who goes by “Lew” (Louis L’Amour I’m betting, perhaps Malmont couldn’t get his estate to release the use of his name). Additional appearances by H.P. Lovecraft and E.E. “Doc” Smith. It’s pulp writing, done by someone who loves pulp and wrote a big, wet, sloppy kiss to pulp.

Follow the Money! Algore edition

Yes, another installment in our Follow the Money series!

This time it’s Algore at the end of the money trail!  Investors Business Daily reports:

No one has made more money from climate change hype than Gore. According to the U.K.’s Guardian newspaper, just one of the “green” companies in which Gore has invested has received over half a billion dollars in subsidies from the Energy Department.

Yup, the same Algore who made piles and piles of money selling so called  “carbon credits” by telling people that the oceans were going to rise within the next few years and flood the coasts, then bought a giant, energy consuming mansion on the southern California coast line.

 

What did Obama know and when did he know it?

By way of Ms. Malkin, comes this LA Times story that shows the Obama White House knew about the corrupt ATF “Fast & Furious” program very, very early on.

Newly obtained emails show that the White House was better informed about a failed gun-tracking operation on the border with Mexico than was previously known.

Three White House national security officials were given some details about the operation, dubbed Fast and Furious. The operation allowed firearms to be illegally purchased, with the goal of tracking them to Mexican drug cartels. But the effort went out of control after agents lost track of many of the weapons.

The supervisor of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives operation in Phoenix specifically mentioned Fast and Furious in at least one email to a White House national security official, and two other White House colleagues were briefed on reports from the supervisor, according to White House emails and a senior administration official.

Our Dear Leader‘s administration has responded to the “Fast & Furious” scandal by continuing their war on transparency. ATF Head Kenneth Melson is being shuffled out of office.  It is as if the Obama administration doesn’t want him to answer any questions about the “Fast  & Furious” scandal.

Even the Obama cheerleaders at CBS News are starting to use the word “coverup.”

Congressional investigators tell CBS News there’s evidence the U.S. Attorney’s office in Arizona sought to cover up a link between their controversial gunwalking operation known as “Fast and Furious” and the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

Terry was murdered in Arizona near the US border last December. Two assault rifles ATF had allegedly allowed onto the street without interdiction were found at the scene.

But the US Attorney’s office working both the Terry murder and the “Fast and Furious” operation did not immediately disclose the two had any link. Two Republicans investigating the scandal, Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) and Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) say there’s evidence that officials at ATF and the US Attorney’s office sought to hide the connection.

HT to Ace for the CBS News “coverup” story.

Friday B-Movie Pick: Just Go With It

Just Go With It.

Ya, it’s a romcom, but it is an Adam Sandler romcom. So expect some low brow, but damn funny humor. While swimsuit model Brooklyn Decker provides most of the eye candy in the film, Jennifer Aniston manages to slip in one bikini scene, which she handles quite well. That scene also leads to one of many great lines in the movie, “She takes spinning classes like they’re M&M’s.” Aniston holds her own with Sandler on the comedy as well. While she was hired as a pretty face on Friends, ten seasons of a TV sitcom show did give here plenty of time to hone her comedic acting skills. If you are looking for an off-beat romcom, complete with sheep CPR, check it out.

The New York Times recognizes the extreme far left wing bias of MSNBC

By way of Noel Sheppard at Newsbusters comes this clearly obvious bit of “news”:

“MSNBC is less a news provider than a carousel of liberal opinion…”

This is not a surprise to anyone paying attention.  Really, the head of MSNBC admitted that he was going to “out Fox Fox”, but from the far extreme left.  It was a business decision in order boost their ratings out of dead last in the cable new race.

Kudos to him because it worked.  MSNBC is still way, way behind Fox News in the ratings, but has passed CNN.

Our out of control federal government in action

Mark Steyn points out just how out of control the federal government is:

Schylar Capo, eleven years old, of Virginia, who made the mistake of rescuing a woodpecker from the jaws of a cat and nursing him back to health for a couple of days, and for her pains, was visited by a federal Fish & Wildlife gauleiter (with accompanying state troopers) who charged her with illegal transportation of a protected species and issued her a $535 fine. If the federal child-abuser has that much time on his hands, he should have charged the cat, who was illegally transporting the protected species from his gullet to his intestine.
