Morning Round Up

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

The Obamacare waivers keep on coming. 128 new waivers and still more to come!  Interestingly enough, most, if not all, of these Obamacare waivers are going to groups who lobbied for Obamacare!  They felt strongly that Obamacare was important for you tax paying peasants to have. For themselves, not so much.

Oh, for those of you who voted for our Dear Leader because you thought he would “promote peace”, let us review his record.

  • Followed the Bush timetable in Iraq
  • Doubled down in Afghanistan
  • Increased Predator missile strikes in Pakistan
  • Signed the renewal of the Patriot Act that the democrat controlled congress put in front of him
  • Kept Gitmo open
  • Is holding military tribunals instead of civil trials for terrorists
  • Attacked Libya, which was no threat to the US, and without Congressional approval

Lenin had a descriptive phrase for you folks, “Useful Idiots.”

A Republican congressman received a death threat laced with anti-semitic attacks and a pig’s foot.  CNN carried the story, buried deep in their web site.

A Wisconsin fleebagger is facing a recall.  It seems the voters didn’t like him fleeing the state rather than doing his job.

Obama’s IRS Launches Audit Offensive Against Wealthy Americans.

No surprise here, our Dear Leader wants to increase federal government spending even more!

Here is some good news. The Supreme Court has upheld tax credits for School Vouchers.

An excellent summary of Gov. Sarah Palin

Sunday, March 27th, 2011

Doug Ross wrote this excellent summary:

John McCain’s 2008 running mate was the target of some of the most vicious character assassination attempts in modern political history. After an exceptional track record as a local official, mayor, and then governor, Palin was tarred as “inexperienced” and “stupid”, though her resume far surpassed that of the Democrat presidential candidate. Post-election, a series of 18 frivolous lawsuits, most launched by Democrat political operatives, threatened to bankrupt her and her family. She resigned the governorship and began raising money for Tea Party-backed conservative candidates in 2010, arguably becoming the primary rainmaker in the historic GOP landslide. Palin’s charismatic appeal, plain-spoken American values and love of country make her a favorite for conservatives and a huge target for Democrats and legacy media, who appear terrified by her amazing popularity.

What will drive the moonbats crazy is that is factual and spot on accurate on both Gov. Palin’s record and the left’s viscous personal attacks against her and her family.

Meanwhile in Wisconsin…

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

Death threats against legislators, which the MSM ignores because the targets of the death threats are Republicans.

Threats made against blogger Ann Althouse for publishing actual facts about the Union protests.

Wisconsin Senate Republican Dan Kapanke has had his his property was vandalized and had death threats.

This must that “new civility” the leftists have been talking about…

Extra bonus democrat corruption outside Wisconsin:

Two Democratic Party leaders in Michigan face nine felony counts for trying to fix an election.  The real news here is that they are actually facing charges, given that election fraud is reliable method of collecting democrat votes.

Update20 Days of Left-Wing Thuggery in Wisconsin: When Will Obama, Democrats, and MSM Call for Civility?

I’m not advising you to hold your breath waiting for it.

Update 2: Death Threats by the Dozens in Wisconsin.  What is it with so called “liberals” and death threats against anybody who dares to disagree with them?  Why is the left so afraid of an open debate of ideas?  The next question is just how stupid these death threat making liberals really are.  Perhaps the  answer lies with this idiot, who posts death threats from his twitter account.

More violent rhetoric from the left.

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

Gateway Pundit has this story that you won’t see on MS-NBC.

Gay black Tea Partyer attacked By Racist SEIU Activists at Denver Tea Party

Ann Coulter summed it up well.

“You can always tell what liberals are up to by what they accuse you of doing.”

Let’s review the video of how those “tolerant and open minded liberals” act in the wild.

More “Progressive Hate”

Saturday, February 5th, 2011

Pretty sicking stuff.  They are very vocal in calling for conservatives to be “tortured” and killed.  One of these enlightened, open minded and tolerant liberals wanted to “string up” Supreme Court Justice Thomas.  Hate and racism in one neat leftist package. The most polite liberal in this video wanted to send Justice Thomas “back to the fields.”

This was taken at a rally of the “liberal” group Common Cause.

File under the Progressive Climate of Hate.

More death threats against politicans

Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011

A Massachusetts “political activist”, a supporter of non-enforcement of illegal immigration laws, was arrested for making a death threat to Rep. William Snyder, a Florida Republican.

The text of the message read:

“To the Honorable William D. Snyder; You better just stop that ridiculous law if you value you rand your familie’s lives ashole.”

The “political activist”, Manuel Pintado, attends the University of Massachusetts.  The University has been silent on his spelling and grammar mistakes.

Good to see the left is maintaining a civil discussion of the issues and not falling into a rhetoric of hate…or not…

HT to Mr Reynolds

Update: Ms. Malkin correctly identifies this as part of the Progressive Climate of Hate.

A Breitbart Hat Trick

Sunday, January 30th, 2011 has three hits here.


Money Quote: “If Stewart was a journalist I would pound him into pudding. But he’s not. He’s a comedian.”


“MSNBC’s host doubled-down on his charge that Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) is a “balloon head” yet refused to answer his guest’s question about Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) and his famous assertion that Guam was tipping over. Meanwhile, Matthews again mis-characterized Rep. Bachmann’s statements about slavery and claims she said that the forefathers eradicated it, something she did not say. ”


Tommy Christopher, Mediaite: When Palin says “their victory in that race to space,” she’s clearly referring to the specific milestone of launching an artificial satellite into Earth orbit, as opposed to the larger “Space Race” that it precipitated.

Mark Levin calls MSNBC on their Hate Speech

Tuesday, January 18th, 2011

The Radio Equalizer reports that conservative talk show host and author Mark Levin has offered $100,000 for evidence that Gov. Palan “promoted the murder of anyone”, as the leftist media, including several MSNBC hosts have declared.

Levin has also threatened to sue MSNBC hosts Chris Matthews and Ed Schultz for stating on air that Jared Lee Loughner was somehow influenced by Levin and [conservative talk show host] Savage when he went on a killing spree at an event hosted by congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Giffords, as you remember was a Pro-Life, fiscally conservative democrat, and that Loughner was described by his friends as a liberal with a severe case of BDS.

The left has clearly been trying to use this tragedy to push their agenda, despite having all the facts against them.  Good on Mark Levin for calling them out on it.
