My Man Godfrey, one of my favorites from the classic B&W era of Hollywood. A classic “Screwball Comedy” starring William Powell and Carole Lombard.

BHO fires an IG for daring to investigate one of his political appointees

Friday, June 12th, 2009

Our Dear Leader has removed a federal inspector general for daring to investigate the head of AmeriCorps.

The current head of of AmeriCorps is Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson. An Obama supporter and former NBA basketball star appointed to the position by our Dear Leader.

Gateway Pundit notes that Obama signed legislation in April to vastly increase the size of Americorps from 70,000 to 250,000. in March the Senate voted to allow ACORN funding in this same bill.

How is that money being spent? Well, IG Gerald Walpin discovered that “millions of dollars in AmeriCorps funds that were wasted or misspent”, accord to the AP, and that Kevin Johnson was using AmeriCorps funds to have students work on “political activities, run personal errands for Johnson and even wash his car.”

The claim is that “Mr. Walpin’s allegations were meritless and clearly motivated by matters beyond an honest assessment of our program.” AmeriCorps does have repay over $400,000 it received in donations though. Whoops.

Byron York correctly identifies the bottom line in this matter.

The AmeriCorps IG accuses prominent Obama supporter of misusing AmeriCorps grant money. Prominent Obama supporter has to pay back more than $400,000 of that grant money. Obama fires AmeriCorps IG.

It’s that simple. A clear case of political corruption by a loyal supporter of our Dear Leader, and Obama responds by firing the government employee doing their job by reporting the corruption. This is what passes for “transparency” in the reign of democrat Barack Hussein Obama.

Update: Michelle Malkin has more, including the ACORN & Michelle Obama connections.

Holocaust Museum killer was a Socialist (i.e. leftist)

Friday, June 12th, 2009

Well folks, the elderly anti-Semite who open fire at the Washington, D.C. Holocaust Museum and killed a security guard is an admitted Socialist (i.e. a leftist) who in addition to hating Jews (like our Dear Leader’s spiritual advisor, the Rev. Wright), he hated NeoCons, he hated Fox News commentator Bill O’Reilly, he hated the conservative Weekly Standard magazine, and like liberal poster propagandist Michael Moore, he hated corporations and thought that the Islamofascist terror attacks on 9/11/2001 were “an inside job.”

Here is the kicker, despite these known facts about the leftist behavior of James von Brunn, who is likely a registered democrat to boot, the far left, including the talking heads at MSNBC are going to claim that this guy is a “right winger” despite the clear truth of the matter. Not that the truth ever mattered to the far left anyway.
