Hillary Clinton Versus The Black Panther Party And ACORN – And What About The Tea Party?

Update: Fox News will begin to discuss what happened to Hillary Clinton supporters during the primaries tomorrow. Because of the Black Panther story the “old” news is suddenly relevant. Remember, it started with the campaign against Hillary. For details on the Fox air times see HERE and HERE. We’ll have more in days to come.


Hey Republicans, it all happened during the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2008. Don’t you get it yet?

Someday, smart Republicans will take our advice and realize they have a Secret Weapon – Hillary Clinton.

Don’t Republicans get it yet? Don’t good Dimocrats duped by con man Barack Obama get it yet?

“But as the investigation unfolded, he said he discovered “indications” that the Black Panther Party was doing the “same thing” to supporters of former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during the Democratic primary season in early 2008. He urged the commission to pursue testimony from other Justice officials to corroborate his story.”

Get it? It all started during the Hillary campaign when Obama thugs and the Dimocratic establishment secretly got together to gift Obama the Democratic Party nomination.

The latest evidence of how sound our advice to Republicans is comes from Bartle Bull. A Democrat. A Democrat who is a member of the Lawyers Committee For Civil Rights Under Law (if you don’t know who they are (hint: JFK) and how Democratic and long-standing, and liberal they are, go away and read up on the Lawyers Committee). A Democrat who was the campaign manager in New York State for both Jimmy Carter and Bobby Kennedy. A Democrat who worked in a very dangerous at the time Hattiesburg to establish voting rights for poor African-Americans in the then segregated South which was not friendly to Northern lawyers. ,

“An old hand at election work, I had been Robert Kennedy’s New York campaign manager in 1968, had worked for Charles Evers when he ran for governor of Mississippi in 1971, and had worked in South Carolina against Strom Thurmond in 1978. In Mississippi I had stopped the voting in the towns of Red Lick and Midnight and made them remove nooses that were hanging from tree branches outside the polling places. [snip]

Having been arrested in Hattiesburg, Mississippi in 1966 while working as a civil rights lawyer, and having received a civil rights medal from Senator Edward Kennedy in 2003 for my work with the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law….”

Bartle Bull, has quite a civil rights pedigree. Those of us, of all colors and races, called “racists” because we supported Hillary Clinton, understand the long strange trip Bartle Bull has traveled these past few years. From Bobby Kennedy’s New York campaign chairman to John McCain’s campaign chairman. Like us Bartle Bull saw Barack Obama for what he is “a hustler”. [We saw Obama as a hustler back in May 2, 2007 – “Pollitics has hustlers popping up all the time. Silver tongued devils, snake oil salesmen, those who wrap their arms around your shoulder and make you feel great populate the political world. Then they stab you in the back.”]

Bartle Bull has a story to tell.

“As New York chairman of Democrats for McCain, I had gone to Philadelphia on election day to work as a volunteer at polling places. [snip]

In Mississippi I had stopped the voting in the towns of Red Lick and Midnight and made them remove nooses that were hanging from tree branches outside the polling places. But never until I went to Philadelphia on November 4 had I seen a man with a weapon blocking the entrance to a polling place.

Two men dressed in black combat boots, black berets and black uniforms blocked the door to the polling place at 1221 Fairmount Street. One was brandishing a large billy-club, intimidating anyone who approached. The two were members of the New Black Panther Party (NBPP). Our campaign called the police and the press. The press filmed the incident. The police ordered the armed man to leave, but did not take away his weapon. As he passed three McCain volunteers, the armed man, Minister King Samir Shabazz, the party’s leader in Philadelphia, yelled: “You are about to be ruled by the black man, Cracker!” [snip]

In March I received a call from an attorney with the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice, asking me if I would confirm my experience in an affidavit in support of a suit under the Voting Rights Act to enjoin such activity. He said that if such conduct were not actionable under the Act, then nothing could be. He said my affidavit could involve risk as the NBPP had injured several policeman in an incident in New York. I said I would do it provided that they saw the law suit through to the end. On April 7 I signed the Affidavit.

In early May the Federal court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania entered a default judgment versus King Shabazz enjoining him from again appearing at a polling place with a weapon. But on May 15, with victory certain because the other defendants (including the national NBPP) had not answered the proceeding, the new leadership at the Department of Justice dropped the case by filing a Notice of Voluntary Dismissal. The government attorney said to me: “The decision to drop the case against the other defendants came as a surprise to all of us working on it.” He said this failure to enforce the Voting Rights Act, the keystone of American civil rights legislation, would “embolden” other abuses in the future.

What would have been said had the Bush administration quashed civil rights enforcement against voter intimidation by whites? The Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League describe the NBPP as a hate group, and the original Black Panthers have denounced it, but the new administration is protecting it.

Indeed, can you imagine if instead of Black Panther Party thugs, even a mild version of this episode involved Tea Party members? What would real civil rights leaders say?

Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy did not die to have thugs dressed like storm troopers and carrying weapons block the doors of polling places, nor to have the Attorney General of the United States protect the thugs instead of the voters.”

Bartle Bull has other allegations which must be investigated. Hillary Supporters who worked during the 2008 campaign know a great deal happened which we are only now beginning to uncover. A lot happened which we are just beginning to find out. We are only now beginning to understand the interlocking directorates at many of the organizations that secretly supported Barack Obama. We have only recently begun to understand the schemes of Ted Kennedy and Harry Reid and Tom Daschle and others in the Dimocratic leadership to gift Obama the nomination. And yes, Barack Obama was the candidate of ACORN and of the Black Panther Party.

Megan Kelly, interviewed Bartle Bull. Bartle Bull discussed the Black Panther case, the Justice Department under Barack Obama and ACORN.

Bartle Bull, spoke of the power of the federal government under Barack Obama protecting the violators of the Voting Rights Act. This Democrat is still fighting against voter intimidation. Barack Obama “wants to maximize the vote” so he encourages or tolerates vote thugs. The allegation has been made that racists who are black will be protected as a matter of policy. ACORN is viewed by this Democrat and civil rights medal winner as a peddler of fraudulent registrations which are now immune to rejection because of Justice Department policy.

Bartle Bull endorsed John McCain because he thinks Barack Obama is “a hustler” then and now. (We’ve also written that Obama is a narcissist and today psychologist Charles Krauthammer appears to agree.) We agree that Barack Obama is a corrupt character so we understand why Bartle Bull could not bring himself to soil his history with an association with Barack Obama.

“What will our next elections be like? ACORN, the principal instrument of voter fraud in 2008, has now been lavishly funded by the “Stimulus Package”. Intimidation at the polls is designed in part to prevent poll watchers from challenging the fraudulent voters registered by Acorn. The new census is to be overseen by the political office in the White House. Hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants have been registered under the “Motor-Voter” Bill, which mandates voter registration at Motor Vehicle Bureaus. The New Black Panthers will be at the door.”

Those of us who have worked to register voters and to assure the right to vote of African-Americans know the difference between voter fraud and election fraud. It’s the difference between rigged vote machines and voters who are corrupt. We on the Democratic side have been wary of election fraud and mocking of the potential of voter fraud. Bartle Bull instructs us to open our eyes and minds and reassess the potential of voter fraud. With Obama in the White House that is a wise warning.

Barack Obama’s ties to ACORN are long and enduring. The public face of ACORN as a defender of inner city communities hides the private face of ACORN as a hierarchy of corruption. Like Ted Kennedy (and Al Sharpton) who pretended to be neutral in the primaries of 2008, ACORN also pretended neutrality. Eventually Ted Kennedy made his corrupt bargain with Obama public (Sharpton knew public support would harm Obama so he kept quiet but privately to Obama corrupt Al Sharpton said I’m gonna do whatever I gotta do to help you… I won’t endorse you or not endorse you.”). Eventually ACORN made it’s long secret endorsement public too.

After the secret endorsement was made public, Barack Obama paid ACORN to get out his vote although we did not find out about it till it was too late.

“Barack Obama’s failure to accurately report his campaign’s financial records is an incredibly suspicious situation that appears to be an attempt to hide his campaign’s interaction with a left-wing organization previously convicted of voter fraud. For a candidate who claims to be practicing ‘new’ politics, his FEC reports look an awful lot like the ‘old-style’ Chicago politics of yesterday.” [snip]

“All of this just seems like an awful lot of money and time spent on political campaigning for an organization that purports to exist to help low-income consumers,” said Terry, chief public advocate for Consumers Rights League, a Washington, D.C., advocacy outfit with a libertarian outlook. [snip]

The Ohio primary was March 4. According to FEC records, the Obama campaign paid Citizens Services Inc. $832,598.29, from Feb. 25 to May 17.”

ACORN is more than a little nut. The dangerous nut to crack is the New Black Panther Party which is repudiated by the earlier Black Panther Party. A video of the New Black Panther Party demonstrates the shabbiness of Obama’s protectors:

“Bartle Bull accuses the Obama Administration of corruption in handling the Philadelphia Black Panthers charges of Voter Intimidation in the November 2008 case that was dismissed by Steve Rosenbaum & Loretta King, both political appointees working in the Obama Administration.”

The ugly verbal attack on a multiracial couple makes us all wonder what even uglier words would have been said if the couple were a gay black man and a white gay man. But that is a question that will be answered in a video at the end. For now, let’s focus on what happened on Election Day 2008:

“Charges brought against three members of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense under the Bush administration have been dropped by the Obama Justice Department, FOX News has learned. [snip]

The three black panthers, Minister King Samir Shabazz, Malik Zulu Shabazz and Jerry Jackson were charged in a civil complaint in the final days of the Bush administration with violating the voter rights act by using coercion, threats and intimidation. Shabazz allegedly held a nightstick or baton that prosecutors said he pointed at people and menacingly tapped it. Prosecutors also say he “supports racially motivated violence against non-blacks and Jews.

The Obama administration won the case last month, but moved to dismiss the charges on May 15.”

Won then dropped the case????

“I watched the two uniformed men confront voters and attempt to intimidate voters. They were positioned in a location that forced every voter to pass in close proximity to them. The weapon was openly displayed and brandished in plain sight of voters.”

He also said they tried to “interfere with the work of other poll observers … whom the uniformed men apparently believed did not share their preferences politically,” noting that one of the panthers turned toward the white poll observers and said “you are about to be ruled by the black man, cracker.”

A spokesman for the Department of Justice told FOX News, “The Justice Department was successful in obtaining an injunction that prohibits the defendant who brandished a weapon outside a Philadelphia polling place from doing so again. Claims were dismissed against the other defendants based on a careful assessment of the facts and the law. The department is committed to the vigorous prosecution of those who intimidate, threaten or coerce anyone exercising his or her sacred right to vote.”

Hey the thugs were black so they are exempt:

“J. Christian Adams, testifying Tuesday before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, said that “over and over and over again,” the department showed “hostility” toward those cases. He described the Black Panther case as one example of that — he defended the legitimacy of the suit and said his “blood boiled” when he heard a Justice official claim the case wasn’t solid.

“It is false,” Adams said of the claim.

We abetted wrongdoing and abandoned law-abiding citizens,” he later testified.[snip]

The Obama administration initially pursued the case, winning a default judgment in federal court in April 2009 when the Black Panther members did not appear in court. But then the administration moved to dismiss the charges the following month after getting one of the New Black Panther members to agree to not carry a “deadly weapon” near a polling place until 2012.”

Until 2012! Joy! Just in time to help Obama if he is still president or the nominee.

“The Civil Rights Commission, which subpoenaed Adams, has been probing the incident since last year. Adams said he ignored department directives not to testify and eventually quit after he heard Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez testify that there were concerns the Black Panther case was not supported by the facts.

Adams has described the case as open-and-shut and said Tuesday that it was a “very low moment” to hear Perez make that claim.

But he described the department’s hostility toward that and other cases involving black defendants as “pervasive.” Adams cited hostility in the department toward a 2007 voting rights case against a black official in Mississippi who was accused of trying to intimidate voters. Adams said that when the Black Panther case came up, he heard officials in the department say it was “no big deal” and “media-generated” and point to “Fox News” as the source.

But as the investigation unfolded, he said he discovered “indications” that the Black Panther Party was doing the “same thing” to supporters of former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during the Democratic primary season in early 2008. He urged the commission to pursue testimony from other Justice officials to corroborate his story.

Let’s repeat that:

But as the investigation unfolded, he said he discovered “indications” that the Black Panther Party was doing the “same thing” to supporters of former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during the Democratic primary season in early 2008. He urged the commission to pursue testimony from other Justice officials to corroborate his story.”

This will have to be another Republican led investigation after November because the once lionized by liberals Commission is not going to get anywhere with the current thugs in power:

“It’s unclear how far the commission will get. The commissioners want to hear from Christopher Coates, the former chief of the Justice Department’s voting section, but the commission claims the Justice Department is blocking Coates from testifying about why the case was dropped.”

On Election Day 2008, the police were called – to arrest those reporting the voter intimidation, not the intimidating thugs. Rick Leventhal was there:

J. Christian Adams is attacked as a Republican shill, but the facts appear to be on his side (on more than one case). Certainly Bartle Bull agrees with Adams that Obama is protecting the New Black Panther Party thugs:

Few Big Media outlets want to discuss this issue so it is necessary to go to sources such as Fox News for information. Here is Bartle Bull on the O’Reilly show and more discussion of ACORN:

ABC News is one of the few Big Media outlets to bother with this story (but certainly not the Hillary Clinton angle):

“A federal judge was set to award judgement to the Justice Department in the matter since the Black Panther members failed to respond to the legal action and the complaint filed against them. But in the final days of the case, the Justice Department headquarters ordered that the case be dismissed in May 2009.

Adams testified today before the Commission that “political appointees made the decision,” to drop the case. Adams cited a hostile work environment in the division and said that officials there had openly stated they did not have an interest in pursing race-neutral civil rights prosecutions. [snip]

Adams testified that his superiors had stated that they had little interest in bringing cases against black defendants. “The section doesn’t want to protect white voters.” Adams said. Adams, who has been labeled as a “conservative” by some media outlets stated his only interest was in protecting people’s rights to vote and ensuring equal constitutional protections.”

These are serious charges worthy of Big Media reports as well as a full fledged investigation by authorities. This investigation will have to wait until Republicans are elected in November.

Glenn Beck has a solid point: Where is Big Media in this story? Where?

“Here we are, picking up the slack for the rest of the media again; they seem fairly disinterested in the New Black Panther case that was dropped by the Justice Department and Eric Holder.”

Beck likely has no interest in the Hillary Clinton angle to this story, but we do. What happened? Where is the reporting on this story?

An old time civil rights Democrat calling Barack Obama “a hustler”, allegations of voter intimidation against Hillary Clinton supporters and John McCain supporters and silence from Big Media:

“Democrat and longtime civil rights attorney Bartle Bull called Chicago’s favorite son, Obama, a hustler in an interview with Megyn Kelly on FOXNews. He said that he voted for McCain in 2008 because he thought that Obama was a hustler and that he still is a hustler. This is quite an assertion coming from a storied civil rights attorney and a true-blue Democrat.”

The allegations continue but Big Media hides and protects Obama:

“The real problem here, as I testified yesterday, is a lawlessness that’s in the Civil Rights Division that will enforce some laws and not others.

Who are the culprits?

“This week Adams told the Commission: “The [voting] section doesn’t want to protect white voters.” And he named names. He testified that Deputy Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandes told Voting Section management that there would be no more cases brought against black defendants vindicating the rights of white victims. Adams personally heard Fernandes say that the division would only bring “traditional civil rights cases” (code words for suits against white racists). Adams also heard Fernandes say that she had no interest in the Voting Section enforcing Section 8 of the National Voter Registration Act (which requires purging rolls of ineligible voters to prevent voter fraud), because Section 8 does not increase voter turnout. Fernandes now needs to be questioned under oath, as does the head of the Civil Rights Division, Thomas Perez, who previously testified this was not the Justice Department’s policy and that he was unaware of such views.”

Let’s have a “Relapse Summer” moment: Picture George W. Bush or John McCain (or Hillary Clinton) as President this July 8, 2010. What would be happening right now on the “creative class” side if one of those two/three was president right now? Massive demonstrations in the Gulf against government bumbling and information suppression; protests against golfing vacations while high unemployment prevails and oil gushes continuously in the Gulf; convoys of Hollywood stars to protests on lack of gay marriage and against war budgets; Big Media broadcasts with video loops of oil marinated dolphins and birds; massive civil rights demonstrations against voter intimidation (if the violators were white); protests against a unitary executive that short-circuits congressional advise and consent would all be on the menu.

Can anyone imagine if it was the Tea Party and its activists standing with nightsticks intimidating voters at a polling place?

What if the allegations were corroborated?

“These former DOJ employees have expressed a willingness to go on record regarding Adams’ professionalism, excellent performance, and outstanding record of enforcing the law without racial bias.

Additionally, they would like to corroborate Adams’ statements about the DOJ.

And perhaps — pay attention, DOJ press liaisons — offer their own accounts regarding the DOJ’s hostility to race-neutral law enforcement”.

As to that earlier question we had on the enlightened position of the New Black Panther Party on gay rights? Here it is from the now dead National Chairman:

Lovely people these Obama lovers.

  1. For those who want to thank Bartle Bull for his lifetime achievements, Bartle Bull’s last listed email (he is retired from a law firm where he is a name partner) is bbull at jhcb.com

    If anyone emails him send him our best wishes.

  2. Narcissist, says Krauthammer:


    Nothing new here. In his major addresses, Obama’s modesty about his own country has been repeatedly on display as, in one venue after another, he has gratuitously confessed America’s alleged failing — from disrespecting foreigners to having lost its way morally after 9/11.

    It’s fine to recognize the achievements of others and be non-chauvinistic about one’s country. But Obama’s modesty is curiously selective. When it comes to himself, modesty is in short supply.

    It began with the almost comical self-inflation of his presidential campaign, from the still inexplicable mass rally in Berlin in front of a Prussian victory column to the Greek columns framing him at the Democratic convention. And it carried into his presidency, from his posture of philosopher-king adjudicating between America’s sins and the world’s to his speeches marked by a spectacularly promiscuous use of the word “I.”

    Notice, too, how Obama habitually refers to Cabinet members and other high government officials as “my” — “my secretary of homeland security,” “my national security team,” “my ambassador.” The more normal — and respectful — usage is to say “the,” as in “the secretary of state.” These are, after all, public officials sworn to serve the nation and the Constitution — not just the man who appointed them.

    It’s a stylistic detail, but quite revealing of Obama’s exalted view of himself. Not surprising, perhaps, in a man whose major achievement before acceding to the presidency was writing two biographies — both about himself.

    Obama is not the first president with a large streak of narcissism. But the others had equally expansive feelings about their country. Obama’s modesty about America would be more understandable if he treated himself with the same reserve. What is odd is to have a president so convinced of his own magnificence — yet not of his own country’s.

  3. Great article as always admin…this story should be front and center everywhere…I think the guy in the video (Shabazz?) is being interviewed on Fox News today.

    I just read on Drudge that Holder will reviw the Oakland case for civil rights violations and potential federal prosecution. Will the DOJ really review the case? If so, how interesting for the DOJ to focus on the civil rights of some and not others…

  4. Kudos administrator for exposing this hypocrisy. I really don’t understand what happened to Holder, whom I once respected. Oh yeh, he works for Obama.

  5. JbStonesFan, Eric Holder is an example of the Peter Principle at work. He is an embarrassment at best.


    The Peter Principle is the principle that “in a hierarchy every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence.” It was formulated by Dr. Laurence J. Peter and Raymond Hull in their 1969 book The Peter Principle, a humorous treatise which also introduced the “salutary science of Hierarchiology”, “inadvertently founded” by Peter. It holds that in a hierarchy, members are promoted so long as they work competently. Sooner or later they are promoted to a position at which they are no longer competent (their “level of incompetence”), and there they remain, being unable to earn further promotions. This principle can be modeled and has theoretical validity.[1] Peter’s Corollary states that “in time, every post tends to be occupied by an employee who is incompetent to carry out his duties” and adds that “work is accomplished by those employees who have not yet reached their level of incompetence”.

  6. In all fairness, I don’t have to imagine what the tea party may have done and how the media would have covered. We did see the Bush thugs do this in Florida and other Southern states 2000 and 2004 and it was only covered by a few investigative reporters.
    Of course two wrongs don’t make a right – and at this point, both parties have a thick record of stealing elections through many means, including voter intimidation

  7. NotYourSweetieO, the difference is that in 2000 Gore and Lieberman shut down protests and tried to be hoity toity. Lieberman actually wanted military votes outside the time zone to qualify to be counted anyway. In 2004, John Kerry was an even bigger wimp. In both cases Jesse Jackson wanted to fight with street demonstrations as well as in the courts – silence from Gore and Kerry.

    When the candidates cooperate in the silence Big Media can be somewhat absolved (though by our lights the candidate is not the important party in any election – the voter is).

  8. Brilliant admin!

    The thugs were hoping to sweep this all under the rug/make it go quietly away. Thank God for you and others who are exposing this travesty of justice.

    LOL…I haven’t heard about the “Peter Principle” in years.

  9. Thank you admin. This is the best, most encompassing treatment of this terrible conpiratorial injustice published. Period.

    God, what a subversive, anti-American farce Big Media has become.

  10. Admin- Awesome post, I am still reading it, but you always hit the nail on the head!

    BTW, Bartle Bull is a PUMA, even if he doesn’t know it. 😉

  12. Clinton hails UN statement, says will visit South Korea
    (AFP) – 2 hours ago

    WASHINGTON — US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Friday that a UN statement sent a warning to North Korea against “provocative behavior” and announced she would visit South Korea later this month.

    The statement on the sinking of the South Korean warship “sends a clear message that such irresponsible and provocative behavior is a threat to peace and security in the region and will not be tolerated,” Clinton said.

    “Attacks on the Republic of Korea are unacceptable,” she said in a statement, referring to South Korea by its official name.

    Clinton said she would visit South Korea later this month for “further consultations with our South Korean allies.”

    “The commitment of the United States to South Korea’s security and sovereignty is unwavering,” she said.

    The White House issued a similar statement, noting that the UN action came after the Security Council imposed tough sanctions on North Korea over last year’s nuclear and missile tests.

    The latest statement “increases North Korea’s international isolation… as the international community continues to make clear the cost that comes with North Korea’s provocative behavior,” the White House said.

    The UN condemned the sinking of the South Korean warship Cheonan in the Yellow Sea in March, with the loss of 46 lives.

    But it did not directly pin blame on North Korea, instead referring to an international investigation convened by South Korea that found that the communist state was responsible.

    North Korea hailed the statement as a “great diplomatic victory.”

    China, the North’s main ally which wields veto power on the Security Council, urged all sides to move on from the warship sinking on March 26 which has inflamed tensions on the Korean peninsula.

    State Department spokesman Mark Toner defended the statement, saying that it provided “unanimous condemnation” of the sinking and “legitimizes the findings” of the investigation.

    Toner declined to comment on China’s message that it was time to move on, but said: “We want North Korea to acknowledge and to accept responsibility for its actions.”

    Clinton said the UN statement showed that “a peaceful resolution of the issues on the Korean Peninsula will only be possible if North Korea fundamentally changes its behavior,” she said.

    “It must comply with international law and obligations, live up to its commitments in the six-party joint statement of 2005, and refrain from provocative behavior,” Clinton said.

    She was referred to the 2005 agreement negotiated by China, Japan, North Korea, Russia, South Korea and the United States under which Pyongyang agreed to end its nuclear program in return for aid and security guarantees.


  13. spin, spin, and more spin…

    Assessing what’s next for Hillary Clinton

    Hillary Clinton has already made history. She was the first woman to be a strong contender for the presidential nomination of a major political party, and she is the first wife of a president to earn high office in her own right.

    Hillary’s loyal fans would like nothing better than for her to make one more run for the presidency, but prospects for that are unlikely. The fact is, time is against her. So is her age.

    In 2012, Clinton will celebrate her 65th birthday; it’s difficult to envision a plausible scenario in which she would challenge her boss, Barack Obama, for the Democratic nomination that year. Such a race would have the potential for splitting the party for a generation, and, in the end, it would be a futile exercise. Although Obama will probably be “beatable” in the 2012 general election, he is popular enough to easily withstand a challenge in the primaries, even from the formidable Hillary. It’s been 126 years since an incumbent president (Chester A. Arthur) has been denied renomination by a party convention.

    Four years later, Clinton will be 69. Although that’s not too old by historical standards (Ronald Reagan was 69 at his first election), as a practical matter, it would be a difficult sell for her. She does not have the same easy-going temperament as Reagan, and her years as Secretary of State, First Lady and keeping up with and tolerating Bill will likely have taken their toll. By then, the Democratic Party, long suffering from Clinton fatigue, will want to look at some fresh faces.

    Unless a serious policy dispute develops within the Obama administration, Hillary will likely remain as Secretary of State until after the 2012 election. It is unlikely she will serve more than one term at State, since re-elected presidents traditionally like to wipe the slate clean and change the foreign policy/national defense team.

    So what’s next for her? Well, there is the possibility of the vice presidency in 2013, if for some reason Obama decides to replace Joe Biden. The vice presidency would be the capstone of an impressive political career, and, again, Hillary would make history if she became the first woman to hold that office. Since, by most accounts, the Obama and Hillary seem to get along well, she would seem a logical choice, especially if Obama needs to strengthen his ties to her former supporters.

    If Biden hangs on as Number Two for a second Obama term and Clinton leaves the administration in 2012, she might

    consider returning to the U.S. Senate. She enjoyed the job, was well-respected by her colleagues and remains popular with her former constituents in New York State. However, for her, it might be a case of “been there, done that.”

    Barring any future elective or appointed offices, Hillary will still remain a force within the Democratic Party. Female candidates from coast to coast will welcome her support. She will likely inspire a new generation of young women to get involved in the political process.

    Most importantly, Hillary will be revered as an elder statesman. She will receive many invitations for television interviews and major newspapers would be open to occasional op-ed columns from her on issues of national and international significance. As a former Secretary of State, she could be a presidential troubleshooter for future administrations, a good-will ambassador, Secretary General of the United Nations or the founder of a new prestigious think tank. Of course, she will write her memoirs about her tenure as Secretary of State, and these will be a best-seller, especially if she offers any criticism of Obama.

    Hillary has “invented” and “re-invented” herself many times over the past four decades, so there is no doubt that no matter what role she fashions, she will remain a significant figure in public life.

    As a producer of a documentary about the primary, who has interviewed hundreds of people around the nation who were intimidated and brutalized by Obama supporters around the nation, I’m very well acquainted with what happened – probably far better than you are. But then I do my homework before I speak and I don’t listen to Fox, or MSNBC or CNN. I have no interest in pundits, either. I don’t think Limbaugh, Beck or Hannity have any insight to offer, any more than Mathews or Olbermann do. Simply being anti-Obama isn’t enough to earn credibility in my eyes – one needs to have principles that one sticks with even when it’s not popular.

    I hope your reading today’s post basement. You might learn a thing or two.

    Your ego reminds me of someone…hmm, who could that be I wonder? A giant in your own mind!


    Great post by the way Admin. Terrifying really.We have a War on our hands for this great country and I pray we are up to it, because it will take everything we have to prevail I fear.

    Onward thru the fog….

  15. admin — thanks. I will be writing mr.burtle to thank him for his speaking out.

    I will also be including the documentary that showed all the intimidation they, the Obots, did to hillary voters.


    Hopefully he will see it.

  16. Thanks, Admin. Finally someone achknowledges the intimidation and harrassment of Hillary supporters and voters. What does that person mean, Hillary’s former supporters?

  17. gonzotx, I thought you would appreciate this saying: Im not a proctologist, but I know an asshole when I see one! roflo

  18. Oh Obama is the ultimate in Peter Principle, you can’t get any further up the wrong ladder there, its the Post Turtle thing again.

    You know it shouldnt be up there,
    it has no business being up there,
    its obvious some idiot put it there
    and eventually it will fall down.

    As a producer of a documentary about the primary, who has interviewed hundreds of people around the nation who were intimidated and brutalized by Obama supporters around the nation…

    You mentioned that the documentary is not available to another poster because you want to make additions to it.

    My question is to you, what was the film for?
    Was it to document the PUMA movement and the problems in the primary only?

    I am among the hundreds of PUMAs that donated to help pay for your film, and most of us were thoroughly disgusted when the film was never completed before the November general election, to show voters what happened to Hillary in hopes that it would open the eyes of voters BEFORE they voted in the General Election.

    If this was not your purpose, what was it and why didn’t those that donated find out about the release date of the film until well after Obama was elected?????

    I think most of the work on the documentary was good work and for that I praise you, but in my view, it never reached the public and now that we are ready for another election, it is not available either.

  20. Can someone tell me why CNN is leaving the Gulf Oil Spill to report on Haiti?? What has happened while I’ve been gone? Is the Administration going after Bill and Hillary now. THe impression I got was that there are bad things happening there. So who’s the one going after BIll on this, the republicans or Obama?

  21. confloyd, No one’s going after Bill. Those entrenched problems are the reason Bill has committed the next three years to Haiti.

  22. Are they freakin’ serious in the middle of a recession. Whoops there goes the state.

    40,000 Illinois State Workers To Get 14% Payraises


    Springfield, Ill. – More than 40,000 unionized state workers got a pay raise last Thursday, bringing to 7 percent the amount they’re gotten since last year. These same state employees are in line for another 7 percent by next July 1, all at a cost of a half-billion tax dollars a year.

    It’s more than the virtually bankrupt state can afford, and some Republican lawmakers say the raises need to be rolled back.

    “I’m outraged,” said State Senate Minority Leader Christine Radogno. “It’s very difficult to buy this rhetoric that, ‘We need to borrow, we need increased revenue,’ when these kind of poor management decisions are going on.”

    For his part, Governor Quinn said the 14 percent pay raise deal was cut by then-Governor Rod Blagojevich in 2008. Quinn did persuade the AFSCME union last year to postpone 2 percent of the pay raise until 2011, the first time AFSCME had ever consented to even a temporary deferment of a pay raise. Quinn and the union also agreed to find $70 million in savings in health care costs. Employees agreed to pay higher health insurance premiums and higher co-pays for health care.

    The founders of ACORN tell me everything I need to know about the group.


    Specifics pls?

  24. I just watched a bit of CNN(rare). My wife and I met Sanja Gupta(sic) when we went to the opening of Bill Clinton’s library. The are discussing the health issues arising among those working on the spill. No one is quite sure how and why some are getting sick, but it is scary. You really have to feel for these people and all along the Gulf. I hope this new cap they attempt to place over the well works or we may be facing an even worse situation .

  25. basement angel
    The ACLU is actually opposing a great deal of what he is doing, but with the access bloggers and corporate media unconcerned with Obama’s predations on our civil liberties, you simply don’t hear about it as much. When they go after Republicans presidents, the right wing media covers it and raises a racket on behalf of their partisan allies. Everyone on the left is simply ignoring what they’re doing.


    When you see news of such a statement from ACLU, what about posting it here? If the Left won’t help them, let’s us help them in whatever good, ie anti-Obama, actions they’re doing.

  26. basement,

    I don’t quite follow your remark about Obama’s caucus thugs being students, not ACORN people. Does ACORN never hire anyone under 30? Do they reject everyone who made it through Junior High? What sort of screening process would they use for this?

    “If you can read this, you’re over-qualified”?

  27. You need to read this and hear the video, there is more @ the site. Horrific…


    Almost Every Cleanup Worker From The 1989 Exxon Valdez Disaster Is Now Dead
    Michael Snyder | Jun. 30, 2010, 12:20 PM | 40,859 |

    Are you sure that you want to help clean up the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico? In a previous article we documented a number of the health dangers from this oil spill that many scientists are warning us of, and now it has been reported on CNN that the vast majority of those who worked to clean up the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska are now dead. Yes, you read that correctly. Almost all of them are dead.

    In fact, the expert that CNN had on said that the life expectancy for those who worked to clean up the Exxon Valdez oil spill is only about 51 years. Considering the fact that the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is now many times worse than the Exxon Valdez disaster, are you sure you want to volunteer to be on a cleanup crew down there? After all, the American Dream is not to make big bucks for a few months helping BP clean up their mess and then drop dead 20 or 30 years early.

    (Bonus: Uncovered BP Document Brags Of Declining Production Costs)

    This news clip from CNN is absolutely stunning. If this is even close to true, then why would anyone want to be involved in helping to clean up this oil?….

    The truth is that what we have out in the Gulf of Mexico is a “toxic soup” of oil, methane, benzene, hydrogen sulfide, other toxic gases and very poisonous chemical dispersants such as Corexit 9500.

    Breathing all of this stuff is not good for your health, but the reality is that the true health toll of this oil spill is not going to be known for decades.

    However, the early reports are not encouraging….

    *Already, a large number of workers cleaning up the BP oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico report that they are suffering from flu-like symptoms.

    *According to another new report, exposure to the oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico has resulted in 162 cases of illnesses reported to the Louisiana state health department.

    *In addition, according to one local Pensacola news source, “400 people have sought medical care for upper or lower respiratory problems, headaches, nausea, and eye irritation after trips to Escambia County beaches.”

    This is going to be something that we all want to keep a very close eye on.

    But it is not just oil spill cleanup workers and people who have gone to the beach who are reporting health issues. The following is a report from a reader named Dee….

    My 2 friends and I have been sick with headaches and vomiting, also it feels like heartburn, just feeling lousy. We have not been to the Gulf but there is an inlet at the end of our street. We live on the West side of Pensacola FL. near the Bayou. At first I thought it was just me. My 2 friends are having the same symptoms, all at the same time. Right now I have a dull headache, and my stomach is queasy. I have been thinking maybe the chemicals from the oil cleanup or the oil itself is causing us to be ill. It has been raining all day off and on. I started feeling ill late last night. I was wondering if anyone else in Pensacola have the same symptoms.

    So what can we conclude from all this?

    Well, it is still very early, but when this crisis is all said and done the biggest tragedy of all might be the health devastation that this oil spill has caused.

    If the Exxon Valdez oil spill is any indication, a lot of pe0ple are going to end up dying early deaths.

    So once again, do you really want to go down there and clean up this oil?

    Of course all of this oil is not just going to clean itself up.

    But if we all refuse to participate, who will clean it up?

    Perhaps BP CEO Tony Heyward and other high ranking BP executives could roll up their sleeves and go down there and start cleaning up all of that toxic sludge.

    It’s their mess, so let them clean it.

  28. When you see news of such a statement from ACLU, what about posting it here? If the Left won’t help them, let’s us help them in whatever good, ie anti-Obama, actions they’re doing.
    The ACLU is constantly bringing suits against the abuses of the Bush/Cheney and now Obama police state. I still get e-mail asking for donations. I finally got tired of their excuses for Obama and let my membership lapse about six months ago.

    It is so funny watching the haters speculate on what Hillary will do. It MUST come from an all encompassing fear of her upstaging Obumbles again. They must know that this time, he won’t be able to fool as many people. The November elections will be proof of that. Personally, I will let her actions do all the talking, and right now she is working her ass off for the country. That’s all I need to hear…

  32. Delusional………thats all i can say. More Rainbows and unicorns and fairy dust BS from Mr. Zero

    LAS VEGAS, Nevada (AFP) – US President Barack Obama said Friday his policies had pulled America out of the most vicious economic dive since the 1930s, setting battle lines for mid-term elections in November.

    Obama put the Republicans on notice he will vigorously defend his record, despite the fact many Americans do not yet feel the recovery he is touting, while economic data hints that the rebound may be slowing.

    “Our first mission was to break the momentum of the deepest and most vicious recession since the Great Depression,” Obama said in the gambling hub of Las Vegas, wrapping up a two-day campaign-style trip.

    “We had to stop the freefall and get the economy and jobs growing again.”

    Obama used his appearance at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, to call on Congress to invest five billion dollars more in tax credits for green energy manufacturing firms, part of his plan for an alternative energy revolution.

    After a brutal year featuring prolonged high unemployment and bitter political battles, Democrats had hoped to be reaping the benefits by now of Obama’s rescue policies.

    But while the economy is posting solid growth and creating jobs again, the party has seen negligible political gains, with the jobless rate still at 9.5 percent, and confidence in the rebound ebbing.

    If the economy dictates the course of elections, as usual, Obama and the Democrats could be in for trouble come November when all of the House of Representatives is up for grabs, along with a third of the Senate.

    Why can’t he just quit and leave us alone? Please God!

  34. http://www.gallup.com/poll/141209/Americans-Oppose-Federal-Suit-Against-Ariz-Immigration-Law.aspx

    Americans’ initial reactions to the U.S. Justice Department lawsuit against Arizona’s new illegal immigration law are more negative than positive, by a 50% to 33% margin.

    The Justice Department lawsuit asks for a preliminary injunction to prevent the Arizona law from taking effect, arguing that Arizona’s law “pre-empts” the federal government’s responsibility to deal with immigration issues. President Obama publicly opposes the Arizona legislation, and the lawsuit thus becomes the latest part of a debate that may have ramifications for this fall’s midterm elections.

    Emotions run high on both sides of the issue. The substantial majority of those in favor and those opposed to the lawsuit say they feel strongly about their position.

    The margin of opposition to the lawsuit is highest among those who are following news about the law most closely.

    A Republican-controlled Arizona House and Senate passed the law, a Republican governor signed it, and both of the state’s Republican U.S. senators (John McCain and Jon Kyl) support it. Official opposition has been centered primarily among Democrats (including President Obama and current Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano, who as governor of Arizona vetoed similar bills passed by the state legislature), and a Democratic administration filed the lawsuit against the Arizona law.

    The general public’s reaction to the lawsuit reflects this partisan divergence. Almost 8 out of 10 Republicans are opposed, while 56% of Democrats are in favor. Independents tilt toward opposition.

    The fact that Americans are more likely to oppose than favor the federal government’s lawsuit against Arizona’s controversial immigration law is in line with previous polling showing that Americans generally favor the Arizona bill. This means the Obama administration is sailing against the tide of public opinion in its efforts to block the law, although members of Obama’s own party certainly support the administration.

    The political implications of the lawsuit are difficult to predict with precision at this juncture. Republican leaders will hope that reaction against the lawsuit generates more support for GOP candidates running on an anti-administration platform, while Democrats may hope that the lawsuit solidifies support among Hispanic voters in key congressional districts and states with close Senate and gubernatorial races.

  35. I got back last evening from the coast and have been sleeping since, I was exhausted, but had a great time.
    I want to tell you that I saw NO dolphins. They are not in the intracoastal canals in Port Aransas like they used to be. I saw no dead fish or tar balls, the water looked normal, but I saw no dolphins. I thought that was unusual.

    Sorry I can’t look at those pics of dead and dying dolphins, it just makes me sick.

  36. “He will vigorously defend his record, despite the fact many Americans do not yet feel the recovery he is touting, while economic data hints that the rebound may be slowing.”

    God willing he will be laughed out of every event he appears at.

    Bill Clinton to Officiate Anthony Weiner’s Wedding

    Posted by Brian Montopoli

    On Saturday, Former President Bill Clinton will officiate the wedding of Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner (pictured), according to anonymous sources who spoke to the Associated Press.

    Weiner, 45, is reportedly marrying 34-year-old Huma Abedin on Long Island; Abedin is a longtime aide to Mr. Clinton’s wife, secretary of state Hillary Clinton.

    According to the AP, the couple has been dating two years, and there could be a fight over what religion to raise the kids (if they come): Weiner is Jewish and Abedin is Muslim.

    The Clintons will also be attending the wedding of their daughter Chelsea on July 31st.


  38. I have no plans to hire any new employees for either of my 2 small business, we may hire a few part timers for christmas time, but that’s it. (And I know of no other small biz who is willing to add any new permanent full time employees)

    Who know what the hell kind of nonsense the community organizer is going to inflict businesses with next??

    The damn deathcare bill has a provision where every damn major transaction will need to have a 1099 form filed, more time I and my acctn will have to spend filing some damn paperwork, rather than doing actual work.

    Of course this is to be expected from a man-child who spent 143 days in the Senate and never ran a damn thing this entire life!!

    Obama to Abbas: I will make every effort to ensure Palestinian statehood

    U.S. President calls Abbas days after meeting with Prime Minister Netanyahu to voice support for Palestinian leadership.

    By Natasha Mozgovaya and Avi Issacharoff

    U.S. President Barack Obama phoned Mahmoud Abbas on Friday to brief the Palestinian president on the American leader’s recent meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and voice his strong support for Abbas’ leadership and commitment to peace.

    Obama promised Abbas that he would exert every effort to ensure the establishment of an independent Palestinian state living side by side in peace and security with Israel.

    Abbas’ spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeineh told the Palestinian news agency WAFA following the phone conversation that Abbas expressed his commitment to a serious peace process that would “end the occupation” and result in an independent Palestinian state.

    During the conversation, Obama noted the positive momentum generated by recent improvements on the ground in Gaza and in the West Bank, the restraint shown by both Israel and the Palestinians over recent months, and progress in the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian proximity talks.

    Obama also noted that his enovy to the Middle East George Mitchell would be traveling to the region soon, and will meet with Abbas to build on this momentum to advance the common goals of the Americans and the Palestinians.

    On Tuesday, Obama and Netanyahu held what the U.S. president described as an “excellent” meeting at the White House. Both leaders came out of the meeting convinced that direct peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians were imminent.


  40. Front page of the POST today says Clintons are qabout to purchase an 11 million dollar luxe estate in Bedford.

    Admin, this post is fantastic and I have widely distributed it. I believe this last suspension of law and order is going to backfire on this administration.

    I am shocked that only 50% don’t support the lawsuit….thought it would be much higher than that.

    I also can’t watch the video re the dolphins….it is just tragic and heartbreaking and I am helpless to do anything for them.

    Is anyone or agency out there trying to help them in any way?

  41. That’s quite a home the Clintons are buying. Lots of room for Secret Service as noted in the article—why would they need such a fancy place if they were going to retire? Hmmm, maybe Hillary has something planned for the future and needs a place with extra security and extra living quarters…at least its’ fun to speculate…

  42. I feel like I’ve been away for a month. I saw NO TV while I was gone so I’m not up on the latest BS from Barack, apparently he is still trying to screw Israel!
    I am not sure whats going on with the Blago trial…but I don’t think the man is going to go to jail. That has something to do with how the Enron crooks got their records wiped clean.

    One thing I do know, is that crooks and liars have been running this country for almost 10 years. Bill was our last Potus that cared about us.

  43. Thanks again to Admin…we can always count on you to put things into perspective and back up what you are saying…ie, NBP and Acorn thuggery…

    …as mentioned previously will any MSM – FOX – other Blogger – catch on to this “tip of the iceberg” story regarding the method O uses to steal elections…because as I keep saying the same threats are out there again in upcoming elections…and now probably worse because DOJ is enabling the thugs…

    wbb…yes, threats of race riots could easily be around the corner…probably part of someone’s strategy right now…we know they will use any tactic they can…


    that clip Admin posted at admin July 9th, 2010 at 11:01 pm – showing the possible long term fate of the oil spill is, to me, a validation that this oil spill is the equivalent of a terrorist attack on our country…this spill has the potential to destroy our gulf and beautiful, clean Atlantic coast…and destroy the fishing and tourist industries with subsequent domino effect on all local businesses with it…

    …this during a time when people were already struggling to stay above water and now will be economically drowning from the effects of the oil spill…

    …and that does not even take into account the information that is now coming out about the deadly chemicals being poured into our waters and the long term effect that will have on our health and the ecosystem…

    …this is deadly serious and what do we get…O parading around acting like a frat boy with his snide remarks…the jokester

  44. oh, and let me add… the oil spill has the potential to destroy the value of coastal real estate and rentals along with the domino effect of local businesses…

  45. Disregard my last sentence. It was made out of anger, but we use the voting booth in this country for change, not the military. if Obama has committed an impeachanle offense in all this, then maybe he can be impeached, and resign office before 2012.

    Admin, please remove my previous post. I am not advocating violent overthrow of the government.

  46. wbb…yes, threats of race riots could easily be around the corner…probably part of someone’s strategy right now…we know they will use any tactic they can
    I think people need to consider that possibility in future planning. I know at the time of the Cuban Missile Crisis we had a plan where my mother would take me and my brother to Montana and my dad would join us there if he could get out of the city. We lived in close proximity to a major defense contractor, so that if the country was attacked our city was a likely target.

    During the race riots of the 1960’s police officers told me that if things went fluid their first instinct would be to protect their own families, which left the burden of protecting other citizens on themselves. One of the officers I spoke to was black and he was particularly concerned about this. This phenomenon was also seen in the Rodney King race riots when the Robert Gates chain of command broke down and police refused to go into certain areas.

    The Rodney King episode is instructive for another reason as well. The partner of one of the four largest law firms in the country, who was a conservative democrat, saw the entire Rodney King arrest which culminated in the beating which of course captured the public attention and conscience. He told me that it was a great injustice that CNN and the other networks refused to put the entire tape on television, because King was like a raging bull, and one or more of those police officers were in moral danger. If the public had seen the entire tape, then they would have understood what occurred in a different light, and why the police reaction was brutal and excessive. That is not to say they should not have been prosecuted. But the public mind did not need to be misled in the manner it was by distorted news coverage. If you apply that logic to the current situation, if there is civil disorder, you can be certain that CNN, and NBC will be fanning the flames, just as now their silence on the Voting Rights intimidation case is deafening.

    The point of all this people need to be mindful of the risk as long as Obama is in the White House and make appropriate plans to protect their family if worst comes to worst. And if I am wrong and there is a peaceful transition of power, then so much the better.

  47. Bedford is a very wealthy, exclusive village in Westchester….a suburb of NYC.

    I think the estate is about 22 acres…2 guest houses…stables, pool and a 7000 sq foot house. They apparently has been looking and are very hot for this house.

    A fisherman explains how sick he has gotten from the oil spill..
    May go along with the CNN story that the Exxon Valdez clean-up workers are usually dead by age 51…also this:

    “New Data from BP’s Coverup Firm Shows Dispersants in 20% of Offshore Workers”

    “CTEH is the company contracted by BP to monitor air levels as they related to recovery worker safety in the Gulf of Mexico. The firm, which has a sordid history of covering up corporate environmental disasters, just released new data with BP yesterday that shows disturbing levels of toxic dispersants in 20% of offshore recovery workers and 15% of near-shore workers. But these just aren’t any toxic dispersants. It’s the same chemical blamed for chronic health problems in Exxon Valdez recovery workers that is now poisoning at least one-fifth of BP’s offshore recovery workers”
    “Data from Louisiana Office of Public Health compiled by Firedoglake shows that almost half of workers reporting illnesses were working offshore. Their symptoms include headaches, nausea, vomiting, sore throat, coughing, shortness of breath, and irritation of the nose and eyes – symptoms consistent with of exposure to 2-butoxyethanol.

    Of course, while CTEH and BP included the health limits for every other chemical they measured, they conveniently forgot to include that helpful information for its measurements for 2-butoxyethanol.”
    “But OSHA isn’t responsible for offshore workers. The agency’s jurisdiction ends 3 miles offshore, far away from the offshore workers most affected by exposure to dispersants. OSHA tells me that NIOSH is observing and monitoring offshore, with the Coast Guard in charge of enforcement. But CTEH apparently has primary responsibility for worker safety monitoring data offshore.”


  50. Bedford is a very wealthy, exclusive village in Westchester….a suburb of NYC
    They have a great golf course there among other things. It is accessible to NYC like Mamaronek is. The Better Homes and Gardens aspect does not interest me, nearly as much as the strategic timing aspect. Certainly, if you are buying a new house and recovering from a wedding it is difficult to be running around the world solving problems, and running interference for a president who does is fast plunging the country into a financial crisis and a foreign policy abyss.

  51. One of the many things Barack is well aware of I am sure is that China is opening factories in Africa, and is staffing those factories with Chinese Prison labor. I am sure he has an answer for that as well.

  52. …the problem we have now and with the info beginning to seep out…is that our DOJ will enable this kind of aggressive behavior…they are already protecting the NBP as evidenced in all the info above and that has been revealed…we also have people at DOJ that are ready to shield them in the future…the worst guy exposed in the past election debacle just got his hand slapped until 2012…gee, just in time for him to start up all over again…for O…

    …see the pattern…so what are we supposed to do if the green light is being flashed to this hostile and aggressive behavior…and everyone who was on the inside already KNOWS that it went on in the democratic primary but was hushed up and went unreported…that the democratic primary system was/is rigged and easy to manipulate…

    why shouldn’t the same culprits just be getting ready to use the same tactics…there is nothing to stop them…and now they have DOJ and O essentially egging them on…wink, wink…

    …someone on the national level MUST expose this or get ready to be submissive and manipulated as voters in the future…

    …and as far as the democratic party goes…under the current circumstances and with the existing caucus system, it is essentially useless to vote…because the party, and O’s democratic party, is in a perfect position to just repeat what they did to Hillary and the democratic voters…again…

  53. Perhaps big media will interview senior BP executive John Soros about the oil spill. Or perhaps not.

  54. wbboei, Are you telling me that John Soros is a senior BP executive?? Is this Soros any kin to George??

  55. Anti white? Obama? Naaawwww. Eric Holder?? Absolutely not. The Dimocratic Party?? You have got to be kidding.

    I learned about this little gem from a Hispanic friend with a background in this industry. To say he is outraged would be an understatement. He was more concerned about section 532 which is of the same ilk. By the way, the most brilliant political commentator I know is black so that is hardly the issue. Race baiting and racial spoils is what I oppose.

    I haven’t figured out why no one is really talking about this yet, so here goes.

    The Dodd-Frank financial regulation bill, which passed on June 30th, is a mess. As is anything that has “Dodd” and “financial regulations” in the title. Liberty Central did a grat breakdown of some of the issues with this bill here.

    However, it’s this part that I want to highlight:

    Did you know…that the bill is full of measures that continue to divide Americans by race by creating specific programs for racial minorities and women, including an Office of Fair Lending and Equal Opportunity (Title X, Sub. A), Office of Housing Counseling (TITLE XIV, Sub. D), the Office of Minority and Women Inclusion (Title III, Sub. D), and requires recruitment at historically black colleges and other minority serving institutions (TITLE III, Sub. D)?

    What this is in effect doing is introducing an Affirmative Action style of gender and race quotas to the financial regulation industry.

    Without belaboring the point, this is a huge strain on the industry. It’s a major shift in employment law, and gives directors the power to fire any administrator they believe hasn’t put forth a strong enough effort to balance out the workforce. Really, the only way the administrator can hold on to their job is to make sure that their staff is sufficiently diversified.

    This puts undue pressure on the system. It’s ultimately unfair to women and minorities who may not be qualified for the job, but are pulled in anyway to make people feel all warm and fuzzy that they’ve got their racial balance. As with any industry, people shouldn’t be hired because they are black or female. It lowers the curve and helps no one. Now, if there’s a black man who’s more qualified than a white man, have at it! Hire him! If a woman can do a better job than the white guy, bring her onto the team! But the idea that a director would be forced to hire someone who isn’t as qualified for the sake of appearances is detrimental to the integrity of the industry. A chain is only as strong as its weakest link and such. They’ll enact these new quotas, and when everything starts falling apart, they’ll wonder why the agency is an inefficient money suck. It dosn’t take a genius to figure out the problem here.

    The way things are set up now, there are discrimination laws that don’t allow hiring or firing based on race or gender. That’s quite different than setting up quotas. This is a huge change, and something that has not even been a part of the larger conversation.

    Real Clear Markets sums up the whole issue right here:

    Setting up these Offices of Minority and Women Inclusion is a troubling indictment of current law. Women and minorities have an ample range of legal avenues already to ensure that businesses engage in nondiscriminatory practices. By creating these new offices, Congress does not believe that existing law is sufficient.

    Don’t you love when Congress decides that the laws that only they have the power to change are insufficient, and instead of altering the existing law, they build in the fixes to other unrelated legislation?
    Apparently, this is how they think they can fix racism and sexism in America. Who knew you could legislate that away?

  56. I do not know if this has happened to you, but for me it has worked out this way. Maybe 1/3 of my friends and former business associates voted for Obama. I took issue with them at the time but to no avail. They were animated by Bush hate and the deceptive rhetoric of a race hustler. After he was elected I continued to remind them that this man is a huge mistake for the country, and their attitude was self congratulatory on one hand and dismissive of my concerns. A ex partner of mine called six months ago and said I would like to take you to lunch as long as we do not discuss politics. That was about the time of that Obama was languishing in Hawaii, while a terrorist was preparing to attack Detroit. Now in the aftermath of the Gulf incident and the racist tendencies of the Obama justice department, it different. As Orsen Wells once said, you reach a certain point where the phone doesn’t ring anymore. If it did, I would be inclined to ask them whether they have learned anything and how they intend to vote in 2012/

  57. wbboei, Are you telling me that John Soros is a senior BP executive?? Is this Soros any kin to George??
    Yes. The source was Beck. I did not see it myself. But this is what I was told 24 hours ago.

  58. A follow-up on what we wrote and will have more to say (probably tomorrow). Does everyone know about this?:


    There is going to be series on Fox Business Network
    about what the democrat party did to steal the primary from Hillary.
    One of the producers (Bettina) is on a political email list I’m on, and she
    told us about it.


    According to Bettina, they will be airing at least 6 different documentaries,
    each on a sunday starting this sunday. This sunday the first one will be
    (or so Bettina says) at 6:50 a.m. and it’s done by Gigi; the next sunday one
    (not sure if it will be the same time or not- probably will be) will be
    done by Helen Latimore, and Bettina is doing the 3rd one.

    I really think this might be well worth watching, in spite of the lousy time slot they got.



    Yes, I know you are in the film. Thanks for reminding me. I produced it with Gigi. I think because of the Black Panther story, they finally think it’s relevant. We have been trying for TWO YEARS to get them to tell the truth about what happened. PLEASE everyone watch Fox and Friends Sunday morning. We would really appreciate your support. This is important to us, and we worked very hard to support Hillary and the fact that she legally won that nomination and they stole it. Canada Free press just did an article about it too.



    They aren’t showing the entire film. They are going to show clips of it and then have each of us on over a period of 6-8 weeks. So, this Sunday, tomorrow, Gigi will be the first. They will show a few minutes of clips, then they will ask Gigi questions.

    Next week is probably Helen Latimore, who is the black woman from Chicago who talks about the thugs on lawn chair (like the Black Panthers) threatening all of the Hillary voters and not letting them into the caucus site. Then, I am the third week, etc. I’m thrilled that it will get this kind of exposure.

    Think those billy club armed New Black Panther thugs in Philadelphia were the first time Obama used Stalinist tactics to intimidate voters and disenfranchise the American people?

    Think again.

    In testimony this week before Congress, former Justice Department Official J. Christian Adams revealed that not only were similar claims “pervasive”, but Obama activists committed the “same” crimes during the 2008 Democratic primary to help then Sen. Obama defeat Democratic heir apparent Hillary Clinton.

    Obama gamed the system in 2008 by not only allowing an army of young men station themselves outside polling locations in African American communities to prevent elderly women and others from voting for their chosen candidate, Hillary Clinton, but he also trained thousands of willing accomplices—while I do not have confirmation, I do sense the presence of ACORN here—spread throughout the Democratic caucuses to commit voter fraud on a massive scale.

    The movie “We Will Not Be Silenced”, made by Democratic Party activist Gigi Gaston, produced by Bettina Sofia Viviano, and executive produced by former Clinton Campaign Regional Director John Siegel, documents how the unknown Senator from Illinois used “falsified delegate counts, falsified documents, and other violations” to beat the seemingly unbeatable Clinton machine and claim the Democratic nomination.

    The documentary describes “the disenfranchising of American citizens by the Democratic Party and the Obama Campaign… ‘Change’ from Chicago encouraged and created an army to steal caucus packets, falsify documents, change results, allow unregistered people to vote, scare and intimidate Hillary supporters, stalk them, threaten them, lock them out of their polling places, silence their voices and stop their right to vote.”

    “Teachers, professors, civil rights activists, lawyers, janitors, physicists, ophthalmologists, accountants, mathematicians, retirees… discuss how their party has disenfranchised them, and how, when they saw and reported multiple instances of fraud, everyone turned a blind eye. Rather than support and protect the voices and votes of its loyal members, the DNC chose to sweep this under the rug by looking the other way.”

    During the election the Hillary campaign issued multiple press releases in an attempt to publicize these events and bring them to the voter’s attention, but to no avail. The main stream media, like the Democrat Party leadership, had already chosen their candidate.

    They willfully ignored the worst election abuses in a generation and allowed an immoral and unworthy man take control of this great nation.

    I highly recommend you watch the entire video; it will only take about 35 minutes and is well worth the time. Be sure to forward it on to others, because everyone should know the true story about how Obama became President.

  60. Carol,

    Nice to see you today. We need all the calm, polite liberal posts we can get around here. 😉

  61. “the DNC chose to sweep this under the rug by looking the other way.”
    The DNC wasn’t a passive participant in this, they were/are the instigators with the help of “big money”. If it wasn’t obvious during and after the campaign, the past 1 1/2 years has made it very clear to me that Obama didn’t game the system or use Stalinist tactics (Obama: “Who is Stalin?”). Beside the fact that Obama was a small fish in the Combine, he has shown himself to be incompetent, disengaged, and probably not terribly bright. He was the perfect candidate for that time; an attractive fictional bio, superficially charming, apolitical, amoral and utterly corrupt. But anyone who has watched Obama’s performance as POTUS and still thinks that he was/is the person responsible his “success” is delusional.

  62. turndownobama

    Thanks! I am here everyday. I read this site religiously and Admin is my primary source for trustworthy political news.

    This is my busiest season for work so I don’t have alot of time to research info,etc. I also try to ignore some of the personal, antagonistic posts directed to me. But I am always checking in anf=d catching up…..

  63. PS….I no longer call myself a liberal. Liberals have disgraced themselves. If liberals endorse a suspension of law in this country…which they have effectively done….then I am no longer one.

  64. Admin- thanks for that longer, better quality video of the Gulf oil gusher.

    And for the info from the Buzzboys. I have a feeling if Fox is going to show a “few minutes” of each documentary, it will not lead fox watchers to think Hillary actually won the election while Barry cheated in the caucus states, but be posted as a red flag for Repugs to be aware of in terms of the NBPs, ACORN and thuggery around the election. Being on the West Coast, I will wait for the playback tape on youtube.

  65. Carol and confloyd, don’t worry, I feel the same way you do about seeing dead dolphins, the video with the dolphins isn’t visually hard to look at, more the thought of these little dots on the water in pods (dolphins)…you don’t see close ups, and the rest of the video is worth watching.

  66. Suppose you were a journalist working for CNN, NBC, ABC. Suppose you believed in your profession and still remembered the ideal of your youth. Suppose you marched in the civil right movement of the 1960’s. Suppose you wrote a book about your country which lauded what it once stood for. In sum, suppose your name was Tom Brokaw. And, finally, suppose you shut your mouth and said nothing about this the travesty of justice in Philadephia which undermined everything you wanted the world to believe that you stood for as an All American Boy. What would you see when you looked in the mirror. And what would you see when you looked into the eyes of your wife and your now grown family. Would you see disappointment. Would you get the vaguse sense that when the bugle blew for your country, its ideals, and your values, that you deserted? Or would you say, I don’t care what they say, these are somebody else’s battles, Brian Williams is unconcerned, and why should I buck the tide. Sure my net worth is $10 million but it would be nice to have $11 million. Like Hitler said you can never have enough Wagner. And, speaking of Hitler the arbitrator just called me and asked me if I did not think Axelrod looks a little bit like Hitler? As you might imagine, I was speechless.

  67. If it wasn’t obvious during and after the campaign
    Ah, but it was obvious to those with eyes to see. It became obvious on 5/31/08 when the Rules and By laws Committee made their fateful decision to abandon any pretense of democracy and disenfranchised 600,000 voters. And bear in mind this was not done in some back room, or decrepit back alley, but in the broad light of day before a millon witnesses. Such was their arrogance and such was their contempt for the American People. Democracy and the old republic died on that day. For anyone of any political stripe who believes in the central ideal of the Old Republic that the people are sovereign that is a day that will live in infamy. We must never forget it, or the people who sold out their party for a mess of pottage–and a nod from Soros.

  68. Stunningly brilliant post, admin.

    If you have time, maybe you would post the Megyn Kelly interview with the NBPP leader-Sham-wow shazam or whatever his name is. She took him to the cleaners and asked him if he hated white people and he could barely answer.

    BTW, I find it interesting that 2 years ago, during the primaries when the race-baiting toward HRC was going on there were many on this site (myself included) who were regularly chastised by posters who no longer comment here (surprise) about anything that was considered racist and that included terms like black hole, fairy tale and brillohead. Interesting that none of those commenters stuck around. I wonder why?


  69. Ah, but it was obvious to those with eyes to see.

    And anyone who commented on it was regularly branded a racist.

  70. “Ah, but it was obvious to those with eyes to see.”

    Right, And anyone who dared point it out was called racist.

  71. basement angel: apropos of our conversation last week, does the name Charles Rebozo mean anything to you? The business connection to Nixon and Cuba made me think of it. It has been a full thirty years since I have thought about him which is perhaps why that association did not occur to me faster.

    You make it sound like a one time deal, what makes you think that it will be any different when Obama runs in 2012???

    If the DNC and courts protect the Fraud King, what can WE DO TO STOP IT FROM HAPPENING AGAIN?

    Send in the Hells Angels (Hillary supporters) or the Marines (Hillary supporters) to make sure the caucus places or voting areas are safe from the New Black Panters and thugs???

    If I were a big guy, I would do it. How ever, I am not tall and am a woman. Bring a baseball bat, nunchucks, tasers????

  73. Jbstonesfan and Blowmeobama: I would greatly value your reaction to something.

    FOX News owns the Black Panther story. The other networks will not touch it because it conflicts with too many parts of their narrative from a high minded civil rights evolution gone terribly wrong, to a candidate who pretends to be the embodiment of Dr King, but turns out to be Malcolm X in a Saville Row suit. Yes, they got bamboozled and so they just hunker down hoping that the storm passes. Better to endure the taunts of Beck and others on why they are not covering the story than to admit the truth which is that they are invested in a lie and they have decided to just circle the wagons. Typical corporate behavior.

    That said we come to a question which should interest lawyers and anyone else who is interested in the technique of persuasion. It is almost a laboratory test. You have two interviews of Bartel Bull. One is a very leading examination by Megan Kelley which does a brilliant job of exposing the incident and why it constitutes a cardinal offense by the Obama Administration. The other is a devil’s advocate examination of the same witness which borders on cross examination and is structured around the rebuttal by the Obama people.

    My personal bias may be entering the picture here. I have a high regard for Kelly, who I think is a brilliant interviewer. I have a low regard for O’Reilly, who hit Hillary with his devil’s advocate schtict, but failed to do it with Obama. To me that is the mark of a coward. I do not think Megan would shrink from confronting Obama as O’Reilly did. But putting all that aside, and recognizing the difference between a first interview which is to break the story, and the second interview which was to tee up the objections and let the witness swat them down, which do you think was more effective.

    Personally, I favor the Megan Kelly approach. I found myself getting disgusted with O Reilly. The other problem I see with O Reilly is he has a hard time letting the witness answer the question. He is more concerned about what he is going to say next than in what the witness is saying.

  74. You make it sound like a one time deal, what makes you think that it will be any different when Obama runs in 2012???
    On the contrary. It is a shadow of things to come. That is the whole thrust of what I am saying, including the race riots which were again in evidence a couple days ago in Oakland. What I am saying is simply this: on 5/31/08 the Obama forces crossed the Rubicon. And where was our Paul Revere big media ever attentive to the issue of voter fraud and over invested in the race dialog? Hiding, enabling and doing their damnest to bury the story.

    Study Alinsky methods, bring a camera and microphone, and if you are a loyal democrat remember that war makes strange bedfellows.

  76. Megyn kelly rocks.

    Study Alinsky methods,
    If I could tell you were I work, you would know I am well aware of the Alinsky methods.

    I don’t live in an area where the NBP reside, and to be honest, unless I were armed, I wouldn’t go near one of those sites.
    Maybe, people watching the outside of these sites with a cell phone in hand could call for help without stepping into the fray.

    Amen. 5-31-08 the day the music died.

  80. I agree, Megan Kelly was great!
    I am glad that guys wasn’t sitting next to her in the studio.

  81. admin:

    you might want to take a look at this. The “man” that Megyn Kelly interviewed gives a shout to the ,according to his words, “the black man Eric Holder” and the community organizer and says of course “the black man Eric Holder” saw no issue with the voter intimidation in Philly and so had everything dismissed against the New Black Panthers party.

  82. Admin
    wow Megyn Kelly is a super star. Place her at four pm and local news stations will rep the benefit.
    Attractive, smart articulate ans she has opinions
    If I were not gay I think I would be in love

  83. Shadowfax,

    This is what worries me, too.

    “What makes you think that it will be any different when Obama runs in 2012???”

  84. “Amen. 5-31-08 the day the music died.”

    Agreed. I remember my sister-in-law went to that meeting, and like Harriet Christian could not protest. They kicked out all Hillary supporters.
    The next day my SIL changed her 27+ year plus registration from democrat to Independent, and vowed never to voter for another damn democrat after what they did in stealing 4 freaking delegates!!

    I will never ever ever forget what Donna “My mama told me rules are rules” Brazille said. The Undemocratic can go down the toilet for all I care. After loyally voting for democrats for over 30 years, never again!

    These people are freaking radical nuts.

  85. admin: have you seen Sarah Palin’s latest ad? I thought it was a wonderful postive ad, my wife, a pro-choice voter, loved the ad and showed it to me. I thought it was a marveloous ad.
    I wonder if the undemocratic party has any any how many independent minded pro-choice women love Gov. Palin and feel protective of her, and the more she is attacked, the stronger she gets.

    I really like Gov. Palin. She is genuine and her record speaks for itseld, and frankly I get pissed everytime the LSM goes after her, reminds me of the undemocratic primaries when they went after Hillary for every damn thing.

  86. 2008
    Smithfield steet downtown Pittsburgh
    Smoker so opted to walk my own way as to not offfend
    turned a corner and i was attacked by more than ten people. Hockered on me. Called me names.
    I just wonder how? It was coordinated and they attacked me

  87. Harriet Christian: “God Damn the democrats” (in the video)

    I wonder what happened with this brave woman. I think she was a waitress, God Bless her.

  88. two years i have waited for something like the new black panthers to hit the news. Endured much worse myself but if the csucus shit hits the fan I will be oh so happy

  89. If it were simply a matter of two aggressive black men at a voting poll intimidating white people then we could say it was just two aggressive black men at a voting poll intimidating white people–prosecute them and move on, but it is not. If it was just radical group called the New Black Panther party getting a little frisky at voting time, then we could say it was just the New Black Panther party doing what they do best– repudiate them and move on, but it is not. If it was simply a matter of dismissing a case which did not warrant prosecution where no larger principle was at stake, then perhaps we coujld say they have learned their lesson–move on.

    What we have all learned from this episode, if we did not know it before: Barack Obama and the people behind him are wiling to condone, excuse and dismiss voter intimidation by blacks against whites, in furtherance of their agenda which is to disenfranchise white voters in 2012 just like they disenfranchised Hillary voters in 2008.

    This poison comes from the wilful and abandoned heart of the DNC, and people like self loathing Chris Van Hollen who dabble in racist charges and throw them around promiscuously. In their twisted world view people of all races exercising their First Amendment rights to oppose Obama are ipso facto racists, but Barack Obama operatives who stand outside voting booths and threaten to kill whites and crack heads are not. And through all this the scions of big media, including Brian Williams who wants people to believe that he is the Walter Cronkite of this era, much as he denies it and protest too much. To get real crude about it, Williams for all his money ain’t worth the sweat off Walters balls.

  90. If I could tell you were I work, you would know I am well aware of the Alinsky methods
    Then you know better than I do.

  91. Hey Republicans, it all happened during the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2008. Don’t you get it yet?
    Someday, smart Republicans will take our advice and realize they have a Secret Weapon – Hillary Clinton.
    Don’t Republicans get it yet? Don’t good Dimocrats duped by con man Barack Obama get it yet?

    Admin, Republicans know this all too well. They will use it at the appropriate time for their own candidate. They are in no hurry and in no mood to help Hillary or her Democrats. They will drop the bombshell when Obama and his thugs are at their weakest and have no time to react. It will energize the Republicans and it may or may not energize the Dems enough to call for course correction to a Hillary’s nomination in 2012. The Repubs gave the Obama Dems a pass in 2008 because they knew they couldn’t win and didn’t want to win but know they are sitting on a goldmine.

  92. or worse the Repubs will goad Obama (or hold him hostage) to enact their policies in which case they don’t have to win the presidency.

  93. “but know they are sitting on a goldmine”

    Yep. I firmly believe the RNC has all sorts of whitey videos of ME-chelle’s rants and the community organizer’s rants when he campaigned for his murdering counsin in Kenya.

    Mccain did not want any of this used, I think Palin will unleash all of it. If they put up another freaking “white bready soggy” candidate (as HillBuzz calls them) like a Romney, all is lost, the RNC truely want to keep out reformers like the un-DNC wanted and succeeded in keeping Hillary out.

    Heck, I will walk on broken glass to vote against the America-loathing community organizer, whoever it is, but a Romney? not another establishment man.

  94. I accept the fact that megyn kelly will never get dirty with me and bill hemmer. makes me a litte sad
    But wow there is a woman named Caroline Glick who filed thousands of suits against youtube for banning her video
    Gotta say thank you to this woman for standing up

  95. When Obama sold his constituents down the river to Excelon corporation over nuclear particles in their drinking water Brian Williams looked his audience in the eye, winced a bit in a paternalistic wasy, and in his best dudley doright immitation voice was heard to say “something of a lesson for the young senator from Illinois”. And now of course he is silent about this eggregious voting rights violation, nor is he willing to blame Obama for failure to mitigate the oil spill.

  96. “Brian Williams who wants people to believe that he is the Walter Cronkite of this era, much as he denies it and protest too much.”

    I think its so hyterical Williams burrows his brow to act all serious, and then I see him kicking the community organizer’s boots.

    I haven’t watched his clown since 2008, what a joke.

  97. or worse the Repubs will goad Obama (or hold him hostage) to enact their policies in which case they don’t have to win the presidency.
    Bull shit. They may be controlled by many of the same people–the neo cons and the neo-libs. But the raison d etre of each party is power and to get power they must fight with each other. Do you really believe they will cede power if they are given assurances that their policies are implemented? Not on your life. I take it you do not like Republicans. Well neither do I. But I do not expect to see a cat bark.

    PS: glad you are back. Where have you been?

    Ly’n Brian William aint no Walter Cronkite.
    There are no Walter Cronkite’s in media right now, at least as far as I can see.
    All have an agenda.

  100. Tim: do you mean kicking or licking? If the subject was Obama’s private parts, it would be a case of res ipsa locitur.

    Contrary to the whisper campaign Brian has initiated among media elites, Brian is not Walter Cronkite. Nor is he Ed Murrow, Eric Severaid, or some other trusted and legitimate journalist. He is the cartoon figure dudley do right. He looks like him, he sounds like him and he acts like him, so at they say if it looks like a rose and it acts like a rose then it is obviously a Brian Willians. But I do have some very disturbing news to report. Tragically, the furoughed brow he practices in the mirror, is no more. The botox needle slipped on the way to the forehead and the furrough is now history. They even say the botox went to his brain and froze it up. My question to them was how could you tell?

    (licking of course.) I remember how he treated Palin, such disdain, same with Gibson. bunch of elist jacka$$es.

  102. I just got an email which documents the number of times we are called upon to produce identification, besides the times when we might be stopped in Arizona for probable cause. I am delighted to have this information, and must make a note to pass it on to Eric Holder. After all these situations could lead to racial profiling as well, and we know how determined Eric is to eliminate racial profiling root and branch, except when the victims happen to be white people.

    I’m a legal American citizen and I must show my ID when:

    1. Pulled over by the police.

    2. Making purchases on my department store credit card.

    3. When I show up for a doctor’s appointment.

    4. When filling out a credit card or loan application.

    5 When applying for or renewing a driver’s license or passport.

    6. When applying for any kind of insurance.

    7. When filling out college applications.

    8. When donating blood.

    9. When obtaining certain prescription drugs.

    10. When making some debit purchases, especially

    11. When collecting a boarding pass for airline or train travel.

  103. Call it “Bull shit” when Obama goes after social security to appease the repubs while holding his base hostage.

    I was in Alaska this past 10 days and BP (and other oil co) has the whole state under their thumb. They throw crumbs at the general populace to silence them because all little people need is a job to make ends meet when the alternative is nothing.

    What was shameful was that we had to take a BP bus and listen to their PR and propaganda to go to what is rightfully ours, the Arctic ocean. The only access to the Arctic ocean is through BP leased oil fields and they take you in a bus under “security” (fake) and let you spend 10 minutes at the water’s edge.

  104. BTW, I understand your power argument and agree with it but my point (sloppily worded as it was) was that Repubs will try to get the Dem president do what they want when they can’t win the presidency and Obama is more than eager to do their bidding.

  105. Why now?

    Democrats seek to limit superdelegate influence
    (AP) – 2 hours ago

    WASHINGTON — Democrats have taken an initial step toward limiting the influence of so-called independent superdelegates in choosing the party’s presidential nominee in 2012.

    A Democratic National Committee panel is recommending a reduction in the number of superdelegates, from 20 percent of the total number of delegates to 15 percent.

    The full DNC must approve the change at a meeting later this summer.

    Superdelegates are the members of Congress, governors and party elders who can back candidates regardless of how their states vote.

    Barack Obama won over scores of superdelegates in 2008, helping him build an advantage over rival Hillary Rodham Clinton in the final count.


  106. JULY 9, 2010.The White House Gets Drilled .

    How ideologically stacked is President Obama’s offshore drilling commission? So much that even many of his fellow Democrats can’t support it.

    Five Democrats on the Senate Energy Committee last week delivered an embarrassing rebuke to the White House, voting with Republicans to have Congress set up an “independent” commission to investigate the BP disaster, bypassing the President’s appointees. Offered by Wyoming Republican John Barrasso to broader oil-spill legislation, the amendment that passed the committee on an 15-8 vote charges the Democratic and Republican leaderships with naming a 10-person commission. It emphasizes that appointees should have “technical expertise in offshore oil exploration, health and safety, and environmental protection.” Mr. Obama gets to name only the chairman.

    By contrast, the President’s seven-member commission contains not a single expert on drilling or petroleum engineering and is instead loaded with such anti-oil and antidrilling activists as Natural Resources Defense Council President Frances Beinecke and former Florida Senator Bob Graham.

    “I would suggest to my Democratic friends that if the shoe were on the other foot, and President Bush was the President and he had submitted a list of names like this to us and everyone was related to the defense of oil companies, we would say this is not fair,” said Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu. “And I’m saying to my colleagues this is not fair.” She was joined by Democrats Tim Johnson (South Dakota), Blanche Lincoln (Arkansas), Jeanne Shaheen (New Hampshire) and Mark Udall (Colorado).

    Asked about this Senate rebuke, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said it wasn’t “well-placed” to suggest the President’s commission “is made up of too many, sort of, pro-environment members.” He then noted that commission co-chair William K. Reilly ran the Environmental Protection Agency under President George H.W. Bush and is “on leave from the board of ConocoPhillips.” This proves, said Mr. Gibbs, that the President’s appointees include “voices from the industry.”

    That is a classic. The issue here isn’t political party but ideological bent. Mr. Reilly is well known as a green activist who once ran the World Wildlife Fund, which is precisely what made him attractive as a GOP political appointee and for ConocoPhillips. Both were looking for environmental cover.

    As for the rest of the President’s commission, the Institute for Energy Research has compiled a summary of their views on oil exploration:

    • “Offshore drilling is a needless risk,” said Ms. Beinecke in 2008, as part of her push for cap-and-trade legislation.

    • “We should be redoubling our efforts to get off oil,” said fellow commission member Donald Boesch in May. He wants “transportation not powered by liquid petroleum.”

    • Appointee Terry Garcia of the National Geographic Society rapped the Bush administration in 2008 for not doing more to “protect” oceans from “commercial and recreational fishing, oil and gas exploration or deep-sea mining.”

    • Harvard’s Cherry Murray is president of the American Physical Society that recently rejected calls from 160 physicists to alter its doomsday position on climate change, which demands immediate reductions in greenhouse-gas emissions to avoid “significant disruptions in the Earth’s physical and ecological systems, social systems, security and human health.”

    • The University of Alaska’s Fran Ulmer is on the board of the Union of Concerned Scientists, which wants the U.S. to curb its “oil addiction” by requiring that cars get at least 42 miles to the gallon.

    Underscoring its biases, the President’s commission has chosen prominent environmental litigator Richard J. Lazarus as its staff director. Mr. Lazarus has made a career out of suing private companies and governments to impose stricter environmental regulation.

    This lineup is the equivalent of naming a panel of Amish to win the war in Afghanistan. They have neither the knowledge nor the interest in drilling down to learn the facts of what went wrong in the Gulf and how to prevent future oil spills. The bipartisan Senate majority that voted for a better commission deserves credit for calling Mr. Obama on this ideological agenda.

    The Congressional panel wouldn’t replace Mr. Obama’s and is urged to build on the White House commission’s work to avoid duplication. But its wider range of expert views will help it counter Ms. Beinecke’s biases. Many Democrats are eager to distance themselves from the President’s attack on the Gulf economy, suggesting Mr. Barrasso’s amendment might make it into final energy legislation. Even Majority Leader Harry Reid said “I don’t think you can have too much investigation of this.”

    Having had his drilling moratorium declared illegal by a federal judge and now his drilling commission rebuked by Democrats, Mr. Obama might want to liberate himself from Carol Browner and other antidrilling White House advisers before they cause him greater political damage.



  108. We need to be politically correct. By the decree of Messiah Obama, you are hereby and henceforth enjoined from calling a man who breaks into your house at midnight with a nightstick a squatter, an interloper or God forbid a burglar. Those are racist terms. He is simply an immigrant crossing a property line, seeking a better life and if you dare to protest him, then we will use an arsenal Alinsky methods to destroy you, your family and what you stand for–cracker!

    I see where Messiah Obama is doing silent raids against businesses and forcing them to fire illegals. This is not the answer. It is wack a mole. The answer is to prosecute, convict and incarcerate the people who hire them.

    Because superdelegates would overrule the delegates won. And guess what? I think last year, the un-DNC tried to limit voting primaries, but having more caucuses instead.

    So, bully primaries voters in caucuses, and then if superdelegates want to overrule at the convention, limit their power.

    John Fund of the WSJ did a great piece about this, I wish I saved the link.

  110. Call it “Bull shit” when Obama goes after social security to appease the repubs while holding his base hostage.
    That is not what I call bullshit. That is what I call inevitable. What I called bullshit was the suggestion that they would not oppose him because he was doing what they would do if he was in their position. They want the power as much as he does. But they will not burn the country to the ground to get it, like he will. If they have any saving grace it is that.

    Apropos of your point about social security however, they have moved smiling Alan Simpson into position for the kill. He is your prototypical gosh aw shucks kind of country lawyer–their version of Jerry Spence. The last time they wheeled out that war horse of theirs for a special act of public service is when Reagan did amnesty promising that was the first and last time that would happen, i.e. Simpson Mazzoli Act. When Alan comes to dinner the mantra is enjoy his stories, but be sure to check the silver ware before you leave.

    Since I am in a bi partisan state of mind let me add one more example. I have a friend who was an officer at the Miami office of a large New York bank at the time when the US Taxpayer bail-out of Mexico occurred. I had dinner with him Thursday night. He is a conservative, but not a Republican. He told me that the deal closed on Friday, then there were glitches and it did no funds were transferred until Monday a week later. Hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars. By Wednesday, there were huge deposits in the Miami bank accounts of Mexican businessmen and public officials. He told me this was de rigeur in Mexico, only this time it was our money they were skimming. He estimated that 10-15% of the money we sent was skimmed. But that is as nothing compared to what Soros is doing He agreed. He said what was lost in those days was chump change compared to what Obama is doing to the country. And of course it is nothing compared to the money which disappeared in Iraq with Obama’s partner from Chicago was suspected.

  111. Rewatched Megyan kelly interview posted by admin earlier
    Why does Shabazz become emphatic when saying words that contain a t?
    Sort of funny. Listen to him.
    Bizarre? Does he think it makes him sound smart?

  112. I am glad that Megyn Kelly and others are not letting this issue go
    It is a terrific scoop, it exposes an injustice which goes to the heart of our system, it has shades of Watergate, it builds market share and it leaves her competitors in Big Media shackled to a false narrative, bound and gagged and twisting in the wind. Every reason to hang on. No reason in the world to let go.

  113. Jack Wheeler’s latest article talks about the October Surprise. I’ve been seeing a lot at other blogs about similar scenarios. And just like no one would listen two years ago when admin and posters here tried to tell everyone what squat was up to, I doubt anyone will listen now, either.

    While I don’t yet have that queasy something-is-batah!t-crazy surreal feeling about the midterm elections that I had when I knew HRC had been sabotaged, deliberately, cruelly, maliciously, I’m getting there. Squat hates this country. Of that I am convinced. And so do the radical racist thugs he identifies with.

    Here’s a Wheeler snippet.

    For the Dems in DC, however – Reid, Pelosi, Frank, Rahm Emanuel, Zero, their minions and handlers like Soros – it is different. They do want this. They do want massive unemployment and economic collapse, an outright Second Great Depression worse than the First.

    The evidence is that their every action without a single exception has made our economy worse, not better. If their actions were caused by random incompetence and cluelessness, then the odds would be high that some actions would have done some good.

    And the obverse: they have done nothing, not one single thing, designed to improve employment (real jobs, not government moocher jobs) and prosperity. This is no accident, comrades. They haven’t done anything to genuinely improve the economy because they don’t want to improve the economy. They want poverty because for them poverty=power, power for them.

  114. Why does Shabazz become emphatic when saying words that contain a t?
    Simple Henry. The word truth begins with a T. So whenever he gets near it he experiences an electric shock between his ears. Barack has learned to suppress that physiological reaction so that when he tells one of his serial lies it is scarcely noticeable. Perhaps Shabazz should seek help from a hypnotist.

  115. Tv stations all across the country are facing a nightmare with oprah dropping out.
    Millions have been spent on focus groups to gert the right woman to host a show that’ll lead into 5 pm local newscasts. Megyn Kelly is the person for the job.Smart funny pretty.

  116. The Town Hall Revolt, One Year Later
    Democrats didn’t get the message. Will Republicans do better?

    Much has happened in the dense and shifting political landscape of the past 18 months—the quick breakdown along partisan lines in Congress; continuing arguments over spending, the economy and immigration; the big Republican wins in Virginia, New Jersey and Massachusetts; the Gulf oil spill; falling poll numbers for the president and his party.

    But the biggest political moment, the one that carried the deepest implications, came exactly one year ago, in July and August of 2009, in the town hall rebellion. Looking back, that was a turning point in both parties’ fortunes. That is when the first resistance to Washington’s plans on health care became manifest, and it’s when a more generalized resistance rose and spread.

    President Obama and his party in Congress had, during their first months in power, done the one thing they could not afford to do politically, and that was arouse and unite their opposition. The conservative movement and Republican Party had been left fractured and broken by the end of the Bush years. Now, suddenly, they had something to fight against together. Social conservatives hated the social provisions, liberty-minded conservatives the state control, economic conservatives the spending. Health care brought them together. The center, which had gone for Mr. Obama in 2008, joined them.

    Neither the Republicans nor the Democrats saw it coming. But it was a seminal moment, and whatever is coming in November, it started there.

    It was a largely self-generated uprising, and it was marked, wherever it happened, in San Diego or St. Louis, by certain common elements. The visiting senator or representative, gone home to visit the voters, always seemed shocked at the size of the audience and the depth of his constituents’ anger. There was usually a voter making a videotape in the back of the hall. There were almost always spirited speeches from voters. There was never, or not once that I saw, a strong and informed response from the congressman. In one way it was like the Iranian revolution: Most people got the earliest and fullest reports of what was happening on the Internet, through YouTube. Voters would take shaky videos on their cellphones and post them when they got home. Suddenly, over a matter of weeks, you could type in “town hall” and you’d get hundreds, and finally thousands, of choices.

    The politicians, every one of them, seemed taken aback—shaken and unprepared. They tried various strategies—mollify the crowd, or try to explain to them how complex governing is. Sen. Arlen Specter tried that in early August 2009, in an appearance with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. Faced with fierce criticism of the health-care bill as it then stood, Mr. Specter explained that see here, it’s a thousand-page bill and sometimes Congress must make judgements “very fast.” The crowd exploded in jeers.

    When Rep. Russ Carnahan held a town hall meeting at a community college in Missouri on July 20, he tried patiently to explain that ObamaCare not only would be deficit-neutral, it would save money. They didn’t shout him down, they laughed. When Sen. Claire McCaskill appeared before a town hall meeting in Jefferson County, Mo., on Aug. 11, she responded to the crowd with words that sum up the moment: “I don’t get it. . . . I honestly don’t get it. . . . You don’t trust me?” “No!” the crowd roared.

    When Rep. Brian Baird went before his constituents in Clark County, Wash., on Aug. 18, he was met by this speech from a young man in the audience: “I heard you say that you are going to let us keep our health insurance. Well thank you! It’s not your right to decide whether I keep my current plan or not, that’s my decision.” The constituent got cheers.

    It was a real pushback, and it was fueled by indignation. The attitude was: “We have terrible worries—unemployment, the cost of government, its demands, our ability to compete and win in the world. You are focused on your thing, but we are focused on these things.”

    The videos, still on YouTube, can be pretty stirring. There’s a real “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” feel about them. It was not only Democrats but Republicans too who felt the heat, and were surprised by it.

    Democrats’ Peril GOP’s Challenge
    The president, of course, got his victory on health care. But a funny thing is, normally the press and the public judge a president’s effectiveness in large part by legislative victories—whether he has “the ability to get his program through Congress.” Winning brings winning, which increases popularity. Mr. Obama won on more than health care; he won on the stimulus package and the Detroit bailout. And yet his poll numbers continue to float downward. He is not more loved with victory. To an unusual and maybe unprecedented degree his victories seem like victories for him, and for his party, and for his agenda, but they haven’t settled in as broad triumphs that illustrate power and competence.

    In the past an LBJ showed his mastery by taming and controlling Congress. Mr. Obama’s ability to work closely with the Democrats does not seem like evidence of mastery. The biggest single phrase you hear about him now, and it isn’t coming from pundits and being repeated, it is bubbling up from normal people and being seized by pundits, is the idea that he is in over his head, and out of his depth. And this while he keeps winning.

    Nor is the left happy with him. In The Nation this week, Eric Alterman writes that most progressives agree “the Obama presidency has been a big disappointment.” No public option on health care, and labor unions, “among his most fervent and dedicated foot soldiers,” see card check as “deader than Jimmy Hoffa.” Is it possible the president “fooled gullible progressives during the election into believing he was a left-liberal partisan when in fact he is much closer to a conservative corporate shill”? Progressives, including two Mr. Alterman knows “who sport Nobel Prizes on their shelves” now feel this way.

    Meanwhile some Republicans are feeling triumphalist, but it may be premature. At the moment they are beating up Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele for his comments on Afghanistan. What was wrong with what Mr. Steele said was obvious: Afghanistan was not Mr. Obama’s war of choice but a nine-year-old war the president has so far continued. But Afghanistan, like Iraq, is the meal he was served, not the meal he chose.

    Far worse than Mr. Steele’s muddling of the facts is that he spoke in a way that suggested the war could be used as a political tool against the administration. He was approaching a grave matter—war—in a merely partisan and political manner. How cheap and hackish.

    The Republicans still need to show that they are worthy of the electoral bounty that is likely to come their way. Are they ready to govern, or only to win? Part of being worthy is showing yourself capable of having serious and truly open debate. What, in the post-9/11 world, should be our overarching foreign policy? What is it we’re trying to accomplish? How should we try to get it done? What is the way out of our economic disaster? What must we do, how must we do it?

    It’s hard for those who do politics as a profession not to get lost in the day-to-day, but if they don’t start thinking big and encouraging debate, they’re going to blow it, too. And they’ll find out at a town hall meeting in 2013. Or earlier.

  117. What I want to know is why whites are so stupidly sacrificing themselves and their futures and their kids futures to this radical rascist anti-white crew.

    Don’t get me wrong. I check off “white” on questinaires but I was never a big fan of the ‘white’ race in my younger years and tried to get as far away as possible from all that I detested about the lifestyle including – yes – intolerance and racism.

    Over the decades I’ve learned to repect what I once ran from, understand that which I once detested and now, in comparison to the alternative worldview Squat and crew presents i’m proud to be ‘white.”

    I don’t mean that too sound as ridiculous as it no doubt does but my point is those who really live a ‘white’ life style are just sitting on their butts allowing themselves to be led to the slaughter. WTF is going on? Where’s the sense of self-preservation, of survival, of pride? It is all so friggin bizarre.

  118. Did a youtube search of megyan kelly
    Even those who hate her exhibit respect in what i resd in comments

  119. Bedford is a very wealthy, exclusive village in Westchester….a suburb of NYC.

    I think the [ $11 million ] estate is about 22 acres…2 guest houses…stables, pool and a 7000 sq foot house. [ The Clintons ] apparently has been looking and are very hot for this house.


    How does this compare with Gore’s house? How much has Soros donated to various Clinton causes? [ dum da dum dum … ]

  120. have you seen Sarah Palin’s latest ad? I thought it was a wonderful postive ad, my wife, a pro-choice voter, loved the ad and showed it to me. I thought it was a marveloous ad.
    I wonder if the undemocratic party has any any how many independent minded pro-choice women love Gov. Palin and feel protective of her, and the more she is attacked, the stronger she gets.


    I’m one of them! Pro-choice, leftist most issues — love Palin!

    Haven’t seen the ad: do you have a link or a search term?

    or worse the Repubs will goad Obama (or hold him hostage) to enact their policies in which case they don’t have to win the presidency.


    He’s enacting their policies already. Starting with taking contraceptives out of the Stimulus bill, etc etc.

  122. “Haven’t seen the ad: do you have a link or a search term?”

    Hello turndown,

    here you go, the link for the youtube is below. My wife loves loves Sarah Palin, so does my sister in law, I don’t understand why the un-DNC can’t understand why pro-choice women, like my wife and SIL who WERE lifelong loyal dems until May 31th, 2008, so support Gov. Palin and feel protective of her, frankly I think most moderates are left of center when it comes to social issues, but conservative when it comes to fiscal, and defense issues; don’t legislate social issue, just live them, but protect America’s purse and its people and defend the Constitution.

    Everytime they, LSM, go after Sarah, my wife goes… “there they go, attacking Sarah just like they did Hillary”, and the LSM don’t realise, that its not just because Sarah is a woman, her record in AK is once of anti-corruption against her own freaking party, and one of a reformer.

    The un-DNC has no clue, none.

    Don’t ya just love the way the LSM called Hillary “controversial”, and now call Sarah “polarizing”. Damn ignorant elist LSM!

    here is the link:

  123. Barack has learned to suppress that physiological reaction so that when he tells one of his serial lies it is scarcely noticeable.
    A positive for a sociopathic politician; he doesn’t have to suppress something that he never had. Bush lied all of the time but it was pretty obvious, his eyes would blink faster and he would get that smirky sh*t eating grin on his face. With Obama, no conscience, no “tell”.

  124. Wbboei, O’Riley is failed reported who was fortunate enough to latch on with Fox at it’s geneisis when there was no other conservative leaning TV newtworks. In my opinion, he has no core values other than promoting his agenda which is mainly making tens of millions of dollars selling books that most adults with any education would realize are utter garbage. He is a hypocrite of the first degree and as we saw during the primary where he was much harder on Hillary than Obama in both commentary and interview. He hedged knowing Obama might pull it off, and continues to do so in order to give the illusion that he is “fair and balanced”, which we all is unmitigated crap.
    I have seen Kelly a few times and the difference , as you can tell, is she is a trained lawyer well versed at the art of cross examination. In that 10 minute clip above, using basic trial cross examination techniques such as leading questions/impeachment (i.e. isn’t it true, using priot statements to impeach his credibility,etc) you can plainly see the difference in an effective interview versus O’Riley’s dog and pony shows. I have seen O’Riley have Kelly and another woman attorney on (I beleive the lady formely married to the mayoy or San Fran) and you can tell they have to defer to him and his sexists remarks, all the while they most be thinking what a complete prick he is…Unfortunately, O’Riley and Hannity(perhaps even a larger tool) bring in the ratings, so all others must be subservient to them.

  125. I have no words of disgust I feel towards these freaking pigs.

    “The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences have nominated the “Family Guy” song mocking Sarah Palin’s down’s syndrome child for an Emmy. ”

    May these disgusting people rot in Hell for making fun and taking pleasure in mocking a defenseless baby.

  126. Sick! I hope the Family Guy nomination by the Academy of Television Arts & Science gets all the negative media attention it deserves–hypocritical liberal Hollywood at it’s worst. They have telethons for the victims of diasters or poverty, but think it’s just fine to make fun of a child with a disability because his mother has different political views. This is not satire, it’s cruelty….

    Beyond disgusting….

  127. Jbsonesfan: I agree with everything you said. I thought the tone O’Reilly took with Bartle Bull was highly inappropriate. And you could see by the look on his witness’s face that he was a little shocked but handled himself admirably. O’Reilly was dismissive, condescending and failed to establish the great significance of the testimony to the audience. This witness is an honest democrat saying courageous things to save the country and O’Reilly acted like he was bored and eager to get done with it. It was bad theater, bad examination of a witness, and of little probative value, compared to Megan’s work. A friend told me yesterday that O’Reilly is a seasoned journalist. I think he is just a seasoned asshole.

  128. “O’Reilly is a seasoned journalist. I think he is just a seasoned asshole.”

    LOL. I am so using that line in the future.

    Obama Likely to Run and be Nominated in 2012 according to DNC (Democratic National Committee)

    July 10, 11:10 AM

    The Democratic National Committee’s Rules and Bylaws panel met Friday and made proposals for the 2012 political calendar. First and foremost, they discussed the likelihood of President Barack Obama running for President of the United States again and being nominated again.

    Additionally, they discussed moving the beginning of the political calendar year to February as opposed to January as it was in 2008. The panel proposed having the Iowa caucuses on February 6, 2012, the New Hampshire primary on February 14, 2012, the Nevada caucuses on February 18, 2012, and the South Carolina primary on February 28, 2012. Other states would not have their primaries or caucuses until March 6, 2012 or later.

    By the bylaws, the Democratic National Committee’s calendar for 2012 must be approved by the end of the summer 2010.

    The controversial Super-Delegates used in selecting the Democratic delegates in 2008 were also a hot topic at the panel’s two-day meeting. As one may recall, Super-Delegates are the members of Congress and Governors who endorse candidates regardless how their states vote. This measure angered many persons of states’ electorates by indicating that their votes ultimately didn’t count if their political superiors didn’t agree with how the majority voted in a given state. The Democratic Rules Committee, at this time, has suggested limiting the number of Super-Delegates allowed to 15% from the current 20%. As many Hillary Rodham Clinton supporters remember, the great influence allowed by the Super-Delegates assisted Barack Obama tremendously in 2008 in that the Super-Delegates with their 20%-power sided with Obama for the most part.

    In 2008, Florida and Michigan were penalized for changing their primaries to early dates. The panel said that any states altering the calendar in 2012 will lose half their delegates. They are serious about having every state adhere to the calendar or being severely penalized again.

    They will reconvene later this summer in St. Louis, Missouri where the 2012 Democratic National Convention may be held.


  130. Michelle Obama To Star In Another BP Oil Spill Photo Op

    Thursday, 08 July 2010

    It took twelve days after the oil spill in the Gulf for President Obama to make his first trip to the region. Since then, he has made a few brief trips, but he has not traveled here in the last few weeks. The most recent high profile visit was from Vice President Biden last week. Yesterday, it was announced that First Lady Michelle Obama will be visiting the area next week.
    Yet, this is nothing to get excited about for all of these trips have been a colossal waste of time and money. It takes plenty of resources to stage a high profile trip to this area. This money would be better spent on the oil spill clean-up effort.

    Mrs. Obama will distract personnel from their vital mission on our coast.. She will pose for some pictures and give a few comments to the media, but it will not accomplish anything. It will not speed up the clean up effort, in fact, it will slow it down. There are already accusations that clean up personnel are not putting in a full day of work. Yesterday, Travers Mackel of WDSU-TV reported on the lackadaisical work schedule that is being followed by many of these so called “workers.” They are being paid for a full day of work, yet are spending most of their time on breaks.

    So, we continue to see a half-hearted response to a major crisis. Politicians have claimed that we are on a “war” footing in this battle, but the evidence proves otherwise.

    If there is a “war” it is not against the oil spill, it is against the State of Louisiana. On multiple occasions, the federal government has put roadblocks in front of local officials trying to take action. Federal government officials have stopped barges from removing the oil on the waterways and halted the construction of vital sand berms and rock dikes.

    The Governor claims that there is no “urgency” in the federal government’s response. We do not have the luxury of time to wait for environmental studies to be conducted. It is imperative that action be taken now to halt the flow of oil into our delicate wetlands. Otherwise, our seafood industry will be destroyed for generations.

    The Interior Department is making the situation much worse by issuing a ludicrous moratorium on deep water drilling. While that is being debated in court, oil and gas industry insiders report that everything has come to a halt in the Gulf. Even shallow water projects are not proceeding.

    In the meantime, high paying jobs are being lost and rigs are leaving, never to return. Some speculate that this is a deliberate attempt by the Obama administration to harm Louisiana and destroy our oil and gas industry, while promoting their cherished program known as cap and trade.

    Whatever the motivation, the results are clear that this administration has done nothing but make this disaster worse for the people of Louisiana. No brief visit from the First Lady is going to change the reality that we face in our state. The only relief that the administration can provide now is a change in policy so we can fight this battle on our own and retain an industry that is crucial to our statewide economy.

    The State of Louisiana has been providing for the energy needs of this nation for decades. We have sacrificed our coast for this country. We deserve much better treatment from the federal government. A few high profile visits will not undo the damage of neglect, red tape and economic penalties being delivered by the Obama White House. Unless Mrs. Obama is offering a real solution to our woes, it would be better for her to stay away.


  131. Why wouldn’t Barry want to run for President again…after all, what he loves best is doing his okeydoke campaigning and his sports stuff.
    Maybe Soros can come up with a job for him before 2012 and get him off our back.

  132. Thank you admin for removing my post per my request. Everything that I wrote was how I felt except for the last sentence. In today’s politically charged climate, my comment as written could have gotten me in trouble, and it would have been over something that in retrospect, I truly don’t believe. Now impreachment with a forced resignation by the democratic party leadership would be an ideal scenario to avert total collapse of this country that I love.

    It wasn’t that many months ago that I remember a Russian gentleman (can’t remember his name or position in Russian government or society) who suggested that the US would break up into possibly 6 different nations. I scoffed at his suggestion, but now I am starting to ponder the possibility. I hope that it never happens, but if it were to occur, I would like to live int the most libertarian of the possible mini-nations.

  133. Hey basil, I just want to say that I always like to read your posts. I would also like to say that I am not ashamed of my whiteness, although I’m definitely not lily white. The strong Florida sun make the areas of exposed skin very dark. It’s the 1/4 Italian part of my background.

  137. Question: how will Mr. Obama be remembered as the curtain slowly rings down on his presidency and our collective nightmare?

    Answer: he will be remembered as the messiah who received the Nobel Prize for doing nothing, and made the American People forget all the failed presidents prior to him. When it comes to failure he is King Obama. Failure on steroids.

    Question: How did he manage to achieve this high honor?

    Answer: he took the worst aspects of each of these failed presidents and amalgamated them into a single brand. For example, Obama exhibits the domestic policy acumen of Herbert Hoover, the foreign policy strength of Jimmy Carter, the integrity of Richard Nixon, the work ethic of US Grant, the coattails of George W Bush, and now the racial equanimity of Andrew Jackson.

    Because by then he will be widely perceived as a failed president and our country will be in dire straits. If Hillary does not run, the democratic party will be widely distrusted and detested by a majority of the American People.

  140. Obamacrats Rearrange Deck Chairs on the Titanic

    In Denial About the Reason for their Failure
    Posted by Brian Faughnan (Profile)
    Saturday, July 10th at 1:59PM EDT

    Flashback to March, 2009: the White House unveils an unprecedented effort. Rather than allowing President Obama’s campaign organization to hibernate for four years, the DNC turns Obama for America into Organizing for America – a permanent campaign that will push aggressively for enactment of the Obama agenda.

    The Obama administration and the Democratic National Committee opened a new chapter Saturday in their ambitious project to convert the energy from last year’s campaign into a force for legislative reform on health care, climate change, education and taxes.

    More than 1,200 groups from Maine to Hawaii spent the day gathering signatures in support of Obama’s economic plan, the first step in building what the White House hopes will be a standing political army ready to do battle.

    Seeking to create a grass-roots force on a scale never seen before, Obama called the volunteers into action in a video message reminiscent of the 2008 contest. In defense of his budget, under attack from many quarters, he asked his supporters to go “block by block and door by door.”

    In his Saturday radio address, Obama called his budget “an economic blueprint for our future.” He said, “I didn’t come here to pass on our problems to the next president or the next generation. I came here to solve them.”

    The idea of deploying a grass-roots army for legislative purposes is untested. Unlike a political campaign, where ballots are simple, if blunt, instruments that produce winners and losers on a fixed date, a policy campaign is amorphous.

    “If successful, it would have revolutionary implications for American politics,” said Ross K. Baker, a Rutgers University political science professor who counts himself among skeptics. “You can generate an enormous amount of support for an individual personality. It’s much harder to do that for a piece of legislation…”

    One hope is that local media will expand the message’s reach by reporting on the canvassing drives. To spread the word, former campaign manager David Plouffe and OFA Director Mitch Stewart e-mailed 13 million people on the 2008 campaign list and asked for help.

    So in March, 2009, the ‘army’ assembled by President Obama to push for big government liberalism counted 13 million people in its ranks. And President Obama’s campaign team was sett to mobilize them to push the president’s agenda. The verdict on this effort was rendered by hundreds of townhalls and millions of angry phone calls. Opponents of big government were far better organized and far more motivated than were its supporters. So in a matter of months, we saw a new effort to organize the supporters or more taxes and spending:

    Furious at the tempest over the Tea Party — the scattershot citizen uprising against big government and wild spending — Annabel Park did what any American does when she feels her voice has been drowned out: She squeezed her anger into a Facebook status update.

    let’s start a coffee party . . . smoothie party. red bull party. anything but tea. geez. ooh how about cappuccino party? that would really piss ‘em off bec it sounds elitist . . . let’s get together and drink cappuccino and have real political dialogue with substance and compassion.

    Friends replied, and more friends replied. So last month, in her Silver Spring apartment, Park started a fan page called “Join the Coffee Party Movement.” Within weeks, her inbox and page wall were swamped by thousands of comments from strangers in diverse locales, such as the oil fields of west Texas and the suburbs of Chicago.

    I have been searching for a place of refuge like this for a long while. . . . It is not Us against the Govt. It is democracy vs corporatocracy . . . I just can’t believe that the Tea Party speaks for all patriotic Americans. . . . Just sent suggestions to 50 friends . . . I think it’s time we start a chapter right here in Tucson . . .

    The snowballing response made her the de facto coordinator of Coffee Party USA, with goals far loftier than its oopsy-daisy origin: promote civility and inclusiveness in political discourse, engage the government not as an enemy but as the collective will of the people, push leaders to enact the progressive change for which 52.9 percent of the country voted in 2008.

    The New York Times, Huffington Post, CBS News, the Washington Post, liberals blogs – all told us that the Coffee Party would be the counterbalance to the Tea Party. They said that this movement in support of progressive change would be the next big thing. But despite fawning treatment from the media, the Coffee Party seems to have fizzled.

    So now it’s time for something new — ‘One Nation:’

    If imitation is the highest form of flattery, the “tea party” movement must be honored.

    In an effort to replicate the tea party’s success, 170 liberal and civil rights groups are forming a coalition that they hope will match the movement’s political energy and influence. They promise to “counter the tea party narrative” and help the progressive movement find its voice again after 18 months of floundering.

    The large-scale attempt at liberal unity, dubbed “One Nation,” will try to revive themes that energized the progressive grassroots two years ago. In a repurposing of Barack Obama’s old campaign slogan, organizers are demanding “all the change” they voted for — a poke at the White House.

    What are the odds this proves more successful than the previous efforts?

    The advocates of big government are desperately trying to convince themselves that what they need is better organization. They look at declining poll numbers, job losses, a growing deficit, looming tax increases, a dispirited base, angry independents, and energized opposition, and conclude that they needed better committee structures. They won’t admit to themselves that their extreme agenda destroyed their ‘army.’ The energized progressives and pro-Obama independents are pretty much gone now – destroyed by the failures of a White House that sees every problem as an excuse to push for more government.

    Here’s a hint to ‘One Nation:’ you can’t squeeze blood from a stone. If you want to win supporters, first try to convince liberals in Washington to make an effort to appear competent. And while you’re at it, try to convince them that not every initiative demands more taxpayer money. Until you distance yourself from an agenda that’s radioactive, your efforts will fall short.

  141. If Hillary does not run, the democratic party will be widely distrusted and detested by a majority of the American People.

    God help us if Hillary doesn’t run again. I will burn my Dem. card and go Independent with real sorrow in my heart.

  142. Very interesting to see the head of the New Black Panthers put in such a submissive position. That was a totally demur Uncle Tom act before a white audience on FOX News, all the more humiliating when contrasted to the radical video footage of this guy. Did Holder put the vice on this guy — ‘go kiss the white woman’s ass on national TV or I’ll be forced to prosecute the NBP?’ That’s Obama’s black power revolution — the head of the New Black Panthers forced by Obama to grovel on FOX.

    And he likes Bin Laden? Bin Laden would chop this guy’s head off, grind it up with some curry powder and feed it to his dogs.

  143. Came here at 6:30 am to see what was up with FoxBusiness. Saw the time change and other things that indicate patience is a virtue in this instance. Especially since I have extremely limited cable service which does not include FoxNews/Business. In the meantime I am amazed to find this:
    BANGOR, Maine — The first family will spend next weekend vacationing on Mount Desert Island, according to U.S. Rep. Chellie Pingree.
    President Barack Obama and his family are scheduled to arrive Friday, July 16, and stay through Sunday, July 18.
    Information about where the family would stay and the sights they might take in while visiting Maine was not available Friday night.

    I was hoping to watch him eat more seafood on the Gulf.
    Maybe his Maine destination is the Bush compound, Kennebunkport….

    Also, some thoughts on recent news coverage what is now admitted to be the Gulf Disaster:
    TV network coverage on Friday evening July 9th was generous and seemingly open. We the viewers got to see the DeepWater rig since, I presume, all the props are now in place. We saw the ‘eternal flame’, many skimmer boats, and watched video of a Navy blimp which – eureka – was going to be the perfect vehicle to track the likely path of the ‘spill’. We were told that efforts had recently been hampered by bad weather, but they were back on course. [Has the weather been that bad all these 80-some days?]

    I must have blinked though because I’m caught between the story that the relief well pipe is very close to the ‘rogue’ well [shame on that darned well] and another story that they’ve removed the cap placed on last month. The newer better cap requires that that very ill-behaved well must be allowed to gush freely for 48 hours, before the new cap seals the well.
    [Judge Judy: When something doesn’t make sense it’s probably a lie.]

  144. I thought about Peggy Noonan’s article in the Wall Street Journal. She credits Obama with passing various pieces of legislation, calls him successful in that respect and then concludes that legislative success does not equate to presidential to success. She gives examples as LBJ who passed the 1964 Civil Rights Act, but fell on his sword over Viet Nam, etc. In my view, Peggy’s analysis is shallow and misleading. It begs the question of how do you measure success and my answer would be this:

    1. First, you must examine the zeitgeist of era, identify the major problems confronting the country, and ask yourself has this president solved those problems or has he exacerbated them? In our time, we face a long list of problems, but the ones that matter most to the American People are the economy, and job creation. All agendas personal and political hang on that narrow thread. So how has he fared on those interelated issues? Has he succeeded or failed? Today, most people will say that Mr. Obama has failed, and in fact he has made those problems worse. To counter this perception his minions are floating the idea that Obama saved the nation from a depression. The problem with that suggestion is it assumes facts not in evidence. Most people believe that economic conditions are not getting better, and if anything they are deteriorating. The actor John Hoseman famously asked How Do You Measure Success? Der Spiegel gave the best answer. In politics everyone measures success through the lens of their own life. That in turn tees up the obvious question which Republicans will be asking voters this time around: are you and your family better off than you were four years ago? The answer will be no.

    2. Second, you must ask yourself do the American People believe this president is on their side. From the very beginning of his candidacy that question has loomed large. Time and again he has been caught lying. Time and again he has shown contempt for the American People and an obvious preference for the elite class. Time and again he has been seen as cheating the system, abusing his power and disenfranchising the American People. And now by his exoneration of the Black Panther crimes and his race baiting tactics, i.e. if you disagree with me then you must be a racist, he is seen as pushing this nation toward a racial Götterdämmerung. The consensus of foreign leaders about him is really no better. These people are connoisseurs of power and big media cannot bamboozle them. From Israel, to France, to Britain, to Germany to Japan our allies see him as incompetent and not on their side. Meanwhile, our enemies see him as a joke, and from dinnerjacket, to Hugo, to the Head of North Korea they see him as a pushover.

    What does this mean to the elites who installed him as President? Lord only knows. But this much is clear: if they want things to fall apart then by all means let this fool continue. If not, it is time to start looking for the Vaudeville Hook. As the old song says, It’s Later Than You Think.
