Leftist Catastrophe Update: Zero People Attend Obamacare Enrollment Event In Illinois (Video)

Zero People Attend Obamacare Enrollment Event In Illinois – Washington Free Beacon

.

.
With the March 31 deadline to enroll in Obamacare looming, health department officials across the nation are making a huge, last minute push to sign Americans up – especially those between the ages of 18-34, but are finding it increasingly difficult.

Over three million Americans are enrolled in Obamacare, but only a quarter of enrollees are the heavily targeted youth.

To make matters worse, an Obamacare enrollment event at the Boone County Health Department failed to produce any attendees.

“I don’t think that young people are signing up for Obamacare at all because they can either be covered under their parents for essentially free or there’s other cheaper options or they just feel like they don’t need it at all,” Jenna Liphart, a Rockford, Illinois resident, shared told WTVO.

Illinois Leftists Raise Taxes By $26B As An Excuse To Pay Down $4.5B Debt… End Up Doubling Debt Instead

#ILGov: $26 Billion In Tax-Hikes Later, The Deadbeat State Is Deadbeatier Than Ever – Conservative Intelligence Briefing

.

.
In January 2011, the clock was running out on a lame-duck Illinois state legislature that wanted to raise taxes. Democrats had lost seats in the recent election, and with some of their own members opposed to the increase, they were about to lose the numbers they needed to make it happen.

The 66 percent income tax hike passed by just one vote in the state Senate and three votes in the state House.

The point of the tax hike, Gov. Pat Quinn told reporters, was to retire the $4.5 billion in IOUs the state had accumulated – late payments to state vendors, contractors, doctors seeing Medicaid patients, and anyone else foolish enough to do business with the Deadbeat State.

Nearly three years and $26 billion in additional taxes later, guess what’s happened? That’s right, Illinois is now $9 billion behind on its payments, the Illinois Policy Institute notes:

[I]llinois’ unpaid bills are slated to reach $9 billion during the Christmas season this year… By the end of the current fiscal year, lawmakers will have collected a total of $25.7 billion in new revenue from the 2011 tax hike. Despite this massive inflow of new cash, Illinois’ unpaid bills are higher today than they were when lawmakers passed the 2011 tax hike.

Yes, it’s easy to laugh at Illinois – and Illinois deserves the mockery – and its low bond rating, and anything else you can throw at it. But if you wonder why conservatives generally oppose tax increases as a way of balancing budgets, here’s the easy answer: If you give these guys extra money, you know exactly what they’re going to do with it.

Another thug gets what he deserved, and his father calls it “murder”

I am always sorry for a father who loses a son, but honestly what kind of fool defends his son charging police with knives?

42-year-old Michael Habay slipped on motocross armor and allegedly armed himself with a pair of knives (pictured above) when Boulder Police came to check on the welfare of his live-in girlfriend after neighbors saw him with the knives, and heard him making threats. When a police entry team breached the door, Habay allegedly charged, and was deflected by the police point man carrying a ballistic shield. Habay then charged a second officer, who shot and killed him.

Habay’s father has taken issue with the shooting.

Noting their officers took “reasonable measures” to protect lives, Boulder police officials on Monday defended the actions of the 14-year veteran who shot and killed a man over the weekend, saying the officer had reason to believe the knife-wielding suspect was about to stab him.

But the suspect’s father placed the blame on police, saying the officer-involved shooting that claimed his son’s life was a “murder.”

The Boulder County Coroner’s Office on Monday officially identified the shooting victim as 42-year-old Michael Habay.
His father, William Habay, of Illinois, told the Daily Camera on Sunday that his son was renting the unit at Wimbledon Condominiums, 3009 Madison St., from him.

When reached again by phone Monday, William Habay called the shooting a “murder.”

“He had knives, they had rifles,” he said. “That’s murder.”

Because no one has ever used a knife to kill right? What does daddy expect a cop to do? Get stabbed THEN defend himself? Or maybe police should have to engage in a knife fight if their attacker is “only” charging them with knives? The fact is his son should have heeded some sage advice. Never bring a knife to a gunfight.

 

Illinois Unemployment Website Offers Star Trek “Klingon” Language Option (Video)

Illinois Unemployment Website Offers Star Trek “Klingon” Language Option – Gateway Pundit

The unemployed in Illinois may experience frustration when applying for unemployment benefits if they do not speak fluent “Klingon” – the language of “Star Trek” creatures. The Illinois Department of Employment Security website makes it difficult to get answers in English, but Klingon is no problem. Unfortunately, this is no joke, or is it?

The Illinois bureaucrats claim they added the language to promote the new Star Trek movie. Independent Journal Review is at a loss for why the Illinois site would do this, and speculates maybe they got some money for it.

Here’s another theory to consider: Maybe no direct money but rather a quid pro quo exchange to promote the movie as a reward for Hollywood’s ATM-like support for the Democratic regime. Just a thought

.

.
WQAD reports the following:

Cory Dilts feels like a character out of “Star Trek” these days.

He’s trying to boldly go where no man has gone before. Really, he just wants to log on to the Illinois Department of Employment Security website.

“You don’t get to talk to a human,” he said. “You don’t get tech support.”

When the Kewanee, Illinois, man lost his job in August, he turned to the IDES website. But instead of help, he found Klingon as a language option.

“To see this, it becomes a slap in the face,” he said.

Yes, Klingon, the language of fictional villains from “Star Trek.”

IDES says it got a positive response and boosted website traffic from a free Microsoft service.

But Dilts isn’t laughing. After battling faulty passwords and phone numbers, he faces losing his home.

“How does this make them look?” he asked. “They do not look professional.”

Dilts just want to make ends meet, let alone to live long and prosper. To him, this Klingon communication is no joke.

“They make it sound like just because you’re unemployed, this is going to make you laugh,” he continued. “It does not.”

IDES is already under fire for policy changes at its Rock Island office. The agency is driving clients to a website that frequently locks up while offering bad practical jokes.

“When they’re running into those kind of roadblocks on the internet or on the phones, it’s just that more hard to do,” said Moline Township Supervisor Don Johnston.

There was more bad news in Thursday’s mail for Dilts.

“You have been rejected for benefits,” he read.

His unemployment application was turned down. It will force him to appeal and fight the system again.

Chicago Police Superintendent: Cops Will Shoot Gun Carrying Citizens Because of His Training

garry-mcarthy

What an asshole

Chicago police superintendent Garry McCarthy is not happy about the new concealed carry laws in Illinois.  And now he is predicting that police will shoot citizens who are lawfully carrying firearms. During an interview with WVON radio McCarthy made some very bold statements that show his disdain for the 2nd amendment. “You put more guns on the street expect more shootings,” McCarthy said. “I don’t care if they’re licensed legal firearms, people who are not highly trained… putting guns in their hands is a recipe for disaster. So I’ll train our officers that there is a concealed carry law, but when somebody turns with a firearm in their hand the officer does not have an obligation to wait to get shot to return fire and we’re going to have tragedies as a result of that. I’m telling you right up front.”

Good Freaking Grief, how have cops in almost every state managed to coexist with CC laws? Is this buffoon serious? If he thinks those with permits are going to approach cops with weapons drawn he knows absolutely NOTHING! Too bad he does not have that attitude towards gang members huh? Some people have no business being involved in police work, this ass hat is one of them!

Illinois Rewarded For Misspending Only $52 Million On Food Stamps

Illinois Rewarded For Misspending Only $52 Million On Food Stamps – Illinois Watchdog

Since Illinois has seen an explosion in the number of people receiving food stamps, even a slight error costs taxpayers millions.

In this instance, a mistake rate of less than 2 percent means $50 million is misspent.

.

That’s the hard truth behind the press release lauding Illinois for having a 98.3 percent accuracy rate for its Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program.

Illinois’ error rate, from either overspending on food stamps or not spending enough, is 1.74 percent, according to Januari Smith, a spokeswoman for the state’s Department of Human Services.

Just more than 2 million people in the state, or 16 percent of the population, are enrolled in the federally managed SNAP. Washington D.C,. sent Illinois $3 billion for SNAP last year.

The numbers: 1.74 percent of $3 billion is $52 million. That’s a lot of taxpayer waste.

“The more people you add and the bigger the program gets, the more cumbersome it gets. The more difficult it gets to manage. And you have money being given away that shouldn’t be given away,” said Ted Dabrowski, vice President of policy for the Illinois Policy Institute.

Dabrowksi said Illinois saw its food stamp population jump 11.5 percent last year.

Smith said the increase in the number of families receiving food stamps can be blamed on the economy, and admits the program is becoming difficult for the state’s bureaucracy to manage.

DHS had 1,870 case workers handling 1.75 million cases last December, compared to 2,000 workers handling about 1 million cases in 2006, Smith said.

The food stamp rolls have also seen a significant national rise. Since 2011, nearly 2 million more people have signed up for food stamps each year.

Figures from the U.S. Department of Agriculture show that 47.6 million people Americans receive some type of food stamp assistance. The average payout per person is about $133 dollars a month. The average payout per family is about $275 dollars a month.

Dabrowksi said Illinois is the “middle of the pack” nationally in total recipients, but noted the state was second in the nation in food stamp growth last year.

“We had a growth of 11.5 percent of the number of people on food stamps,” Dabrowksi said. “Only Wyoming was worse.”

Dabrowksi said Illinois needs to add more jobs to get more people off food stamps.

By growing the economy, more people can get away from government programs and allow the state to help those who truly need help, he said.

Illinois is being awarded $4 million by the USDA as recognition of it 98 percent accuracy rate. Smith said she doesn’t know how Illinois will spend that money.

Illinois Legislature Blocks Veto Of Vile, Leftist Governor, Passes Concealed Carry Bill

IL Senate Blocks Quinn’s Veto, State Becomes Last To Pass Concealed Carry – Big Government

The Illinois House, without debate, has struck down the amendatory veto Governor Pat Quinn issued to House Bill 183 by a 77-31 vote, allowing residents to carry concealed firearms. The Illinois Senate has now followed suit and also voted against Quinn’s veto by a margin of 41-17.

.
……….

With the passage of the bill, Illinois becomes the last state in the union to allow its residents to carry concealed firearms.

The Illinois State Police must now be ready to process an anticipated 300,000 first year applications within six months. Residents must pay $150 and non-residents will be required to pay $300, in addition to 16 hours of required training, to apply for the five-year permit.

Why can’t Democrats just compete?

Ed Morrissey points to whining from Democratic governors about the best damned governor in America luring companies to Texas

I assume this means that Governor Rick Perry’s poaching has been successful:

Gov. Rick Perry’s high-profile efforts to lure jobs to Texas from other states may be good business and smart politics back home, but they’re infuriating to prominent Democrats around the country.

And now at least one Republican business leader says Perry’s taking the Lone Star swagger a little too far.

Perry’s forceful recruitment campaigns, featuring radio and magazine ads as well as personal appearances, promise low-tax, pro-growth policies in Texas —and they also trash the business climate in places like California (“…I hear building a business in California is next to impossible”) and Illinois (“…an environment that, intentionally or not, is designed for you to fail.”)

Those attacks hit where it hurts and have touched off an angry political backlash against Perry outside the Texas borders, with Democrats mocking his attempts to steal jobs as clownish – and warning the Republican governor to keep his hands off. In a memorable put-down, Gov. Jerry Brown said Perry’s incursions into California were about as effective as breaking wind.

But other observers say Perry knows exactly what he’s doing.

“At the end of the day, no matter how any of the [states] respond, people are left with two distinct messages: That guy down in Texas has got big brass balls and he’s creating a lot of jobs,” Mark McKinnon, a political strategist with deep Texas ties, told POLITICO. “It’s brilliant marketing and very smart politics.”

My first thought is this. Why can’t these whiners learn from being beaten? Why can’t they look in the mirror and say I, and my state legislature have to do better. Why can’t they grasp that if their states were less hostile to businesses, those businesses would stay? Maybe whining is just ingrained in the DNA of Democrats.

Senator Durbin ought to read the Constitution sometime

Big Fur Hat lays into Senator Durbin

Lil Dick Durbin can go F himself, sideways 

Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin has in the past had a very subjective and abstract view of the Constitution, and on Fox News Sunday he once again wondered which people might be “entitled” to constitutional protections and which people might not:

“You’ve raised an important point and I heard Sen. Graham call for special counsel,” Durbin said. “I’m not ready to do this at this moment. I would like to know if Holder has any conflict in here beyond what we heard when it comes to the Fox case.”

“But here is the bottom line — the media shield law, which I am prepared to support, and I know Sen. Graham supports, still leaves an unanswered question, which I have raised many times: What is a journalist today in 2013? We know it’s someone that works for Fox or AP, but does it include a blogger? Does it include someone who is tweeting? Are these people journalists and entitled to constitutional protection? We need to ask 21st century questions about a provision that was written over 200 years ago.”

Eighteen human heads walk into a bar………….

Via The Other McCain

Somewhere in Illinois, a “research facility” is being operated by zombies, cannibals or, perhaps, a mad scientist from Transylvania:

The 18 human head specimens that arrived at O’Hare International Airport from Rome just before Christmas were on their way to a research facility in the Chicago suburbs — a facility that is “under investigation,” a source told the Chicago Sun-Times Tuesday morning.
Officials initially said a paperwork problem prevented the shipment from being delivered to its final destination, but the Sun-Times has learned that the hold-up is connected to an ongoing investigation at the suburban facility in question. The investigation is “absolutely not” connected to the shipment of the heads, the source said.
The heads were shipped from Rome as cargo on a Lufthansa Airlines flight, arriving at O’Hare about one week before Christmas.
“They were properly preserved and tagged as human specimens,” said Tony Brucci, chief investigator for the medical examiner’s office.
Brucci said U.S. Customs officials at O’Hare initially held up the shipment, when they found the paperwork to be “a little confusing.”
Brian Bell, a spokesman with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, said earlier Tuesday that the specimens appear to be legitimate medical samples.

 

Illinois Anti-Gun Legislator Arrested For… Wait For It… Trying To Bring A Gun Onto A Plane

Chicago Anti-Gun Pol’s Arrest Shows True Gun Control Hypocrisy – CCRKBA

Today’s arrest of Illinois State Sen. Donne Trotter by authorities at O’Hare International Airport for having a gun in his carry-on bag is a revealing look at the hypocrisy of anti-gunners, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Trotter was arrested at a security checkpoint early this morning. A candidate for the 2nd Congressional District seat vacated recently by Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr., Trotter had a .25-caliber Beretta semiautomatic pistol in his bag. The Chicago Tribune said Trotter told police he worked late last night as a security guard and didn’t realize the pistol was in his bag.

“Trotter is a South Side Democrat and he was a leader in the move to ban so-called ‘assault weapons’ during his first term as a state representative,” noted CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “A man who favored banning firearms for thousands of his fellow Illinois residents shouldn’t even have a gun, much less be packing one illegally into an airport.”

Trotter has reportedly been charged with one count of attempting to board an airplane with a weapon, which is a Class 4 felony.

“Senator Trotter, by his own action, has demonstrated the monumental hypocrisy of gun control advocates who try to disarm average citizens while reserving the right to bear arms for themselves alone,” Gottlieb observed. “He should not even be serving in the state legislature, much less be running for a seat in Congress, which already has its share of gun prohibition hypocrites.

“Today’s incident underscores just how pathetic the anti-gun philosophy has gotten,” he concluded. “Perhaps now he will realize how other citizens feel when they run afoul of some anti-gun law or regulation. He should apologize to every gun owner in Illinois.”

Parasitic Leftists In Illinois Push To Give Illegal Aliens Drivers Licenses

Illinois Moves To Grant Licenses To Illegal Immigrants – Washington Times

Top Illinois state officials said Tuesday they’ll push to issue driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants – a move backed also by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who for years stood as Democrats’ key impediment to pushing immigration in Congress.

State Senate President John Cullerton said he’ll try to pass a bill in the legislature’s veto session next week to remove restrictions on illegal immigrants getting licenses there, and Gov. Pat Quinn said he’ll sign it, if it reaches his desk. Both men are Democrats.

The move represents pushback after a decade in which states went the other direction, putting tighter restrictions on driver’s licenses after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The commission that investigated those attacks recommended stricter driver’s license requirements.

Illinois would become the third state to allow illegal immigrants to get licenses, joining Washington and New Mexico.

“I strongly support state legislation that will allow every Chicagoan, regardless of legal status, to enjoy the rights and responsibilities that come with a driver’s license,” Mr. Emanuel, President Obama’s first White House chief of staff, said in a statement.

Flashback: Obama Sole Senator Not To Vote In Favor Of Protecting Rape Victims In ’99 Illinois State Senate Vote

Flashback: Obama Broke With Colleagues, Voted Present On Protecting Rape Victims In ’99 State Senate Vote – Daily Caller

In a 1999 legislative vote, then-Illinois State Senator Barack Obama was the sole state senator to not vote for a bill that would protect sexual assault victims from having the details of their cases revealed publicly.

On May 11 of that year, Obama voted “present” on a bill, ultimately made law, that allows victims of sex crimes to request that their cases be sealed from public view following a criminal conviction. Illinois Senate voting records show that Obama was the only senator who did not vote in favor of the bill.

Obama’s unique objection to voting for a bill meant to protect victims of sex crimes is a substantial departure from the picture he has attempted to paint for women voters.

The future president, it was reported then, questioned the bill’s constitutionality.

The legislation’s intent was to prevent public consumption of the explicit details of sex crimes without “good cause.”

“Under the bill, the trials involving sex crimes would remain open, but upon a conviction, a victim of a sex crime could ask a state’s attorney to petition a judge to seal the records of the case,” reporter Joe Mahr wrote for The State Journal-Register. “If the judge agreed, the public could not open those records unless someone petitioned the court and showed good cause.”

The Illinois Coalition Against Sexual Assault led the charge for the law, Mahr reported, adding that the group “pushed the bill after a victim’s co-worker researched the details of her assault in court files. The victim later realized, to her horror, that anyone could look up court files on criminal cases, including sex crimes.”

A contingent of schoolchildren from Obama’s Chicago district were in attendance as Obama voted “present.”

Mere minutes before, Obama had announced their presence to the Illinois State Senate chamber.

“I am pleased to say that we have today some schoolchildren from my district, for the Ancona School in Hyde Park/Kenwood area,” Obama said, according to Senate transcripts. “These are seventh and eighth graders who worked on a history project all year and are down here to observe the workings of the Senate in the State Capitol,” he said.

Obama would later vote “present” on the bill a second time when it returned to the state Senate Judiciary Committee, following passage by the state House. In that committee vote, two other state senators joined Obama in voting “present.”

As he runs for re-election, Obama has made women’s rights – and a supposed Republican “war on women” – a focal point of his campaign. Rape-related gaffes from Republican Senate candidates like Richard Mourdock in Indiana and Rep. Todd Akin in Missouri have become springboards for Obama’s attempts to drive a political wedge between Republicans and women voters.

In a Wednesday interview with comedian Jay Leno, for instance, Obama bashed Mourdock, who implied this week that abortion should not be a viable choice for women who are raped because procreation in such cases is still an act of God’s will.

“Let me make a very simple proposition: Rape is rape,” Obama said. “It is a crime. And so these various distinctions about rape don’t make too much sense to me – don’t make any sense to me. This is exactly why you don’t want a bunch of politicians, mostly male, making decisions about women’s health care decisions.”

Obama has also tried to depict his GOP opponent Mitt Romney, with relative success, as anti-woman.

He started the election polling 16 points ahead of Romney with women. But an Associated Press poll published Thursday shows that Romney has erased that advantage and is running even among likely voters who are female.

The Obama campaign and Democrats were left scrambling Thursday to turn that tide back in their favor.

The president’s re-election campaign released a new ad Thursday morning attacking the former Massachusetts governor’s position on abortion.

California Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer hammered the Republican party on Twitter Thursday afternoon, claiming the “GOP doesn’t stand with women even when they are raped.”

And The New York Times reported that Obama bashed the GOP on the stump in Tampa over women’s health issues.

“As we saw again this week, I don’t think any politician in Washington, most of whom are male, should be making health care decisions for women,” Obama repeated.

Spokespersons for the Obama campaign did not respond to TheDC’s request for comment.

Jesse Jackson Jr. hospitalized again

I guess the Corrupted Assholitis came back

Stacy McCain has more, plus an important question about Democrat voters

Unfortunately, liberalism isn’t listed in the DSM-IV:

U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. is heading back to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. — and was reportedly en route Friday evening.
A source said the decision was made to have the the South Shore Democrat return to the famed clinic, where he spent four weeks this summer for bipolar depression. He had been staying at his home in Washington, D.C. since leaving Mayo.
A source who visited Jackson this week said, “Jesse wanted you to know he is finding it difficult to continue his treatment because the press is staking out his home and making access to his doctor, who is within a short walking distance from his home, incredibly hard.”
The source added that Jackson is trying “to stay focused and calm to enhance his treatment and is just following doctor’s orders.”

Jackson is a corrupt race pimp just like his father, but, I guess the brainwashed voters of the “D” party will vote for anything with that “D” by it!

Who’s crazier: The congressman suffering from bipolar depression, or the Illinois voters who don’t mind re-electing a genuine nutjob, so long as he’s got a “D” beside his name?

Yes, I know, I am being mean, and insensitive right? Wrong! I am tired of stupid voters who cannot bother to see what type of clowns politicians like Je$$e Jr really are.

Well, there is some sanity in Illinois after all

 

Via Shall Not Be Questioned comes this nugget from a statement by the Illinois Attorney General

Our message is this: we will no longer use the power and authority of our office to criminalize and punish decent, otherwise law-abiding citizens who choose to exercise the rights granted to them by the Second Amendment of the United States’ Constitution to keep and bear arms in defense of themselves and their families.

Wow, I love the sound of that. Of course, the Left is flipping out and mashing the panic button to beat the band I ESPECIALLY love this tweet

.@SebastianSNBQ We oppose anyone & everyone who flouts our Constitution & takes the law into their own hands. And we always will.

Aha, so NOW the gun grabbers give a rat’s ass about the Constitution? The same Constitution they actively seek to destroy where the 2nd amendment is concerned? I like this quote from the link, it really sums up the real priorities of the gun control zealots

This is what they are freaking out about. It’s not criminals possessing guns, it’s not drug dealers possessing guns — they are freaking out because a prosecutor has declared he’s not going to try to put otherwise law-abiding, honest people in prison.

BINGO! In the demented minds of these folks, armed Americans who defend themselves with a gun are a bigger threat than actual criminals.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water….

Along comes a testicle-eating fish!

When biologists say the pacu fish eats nuts, they may be correct in more ways than one.

The pacu, a toothy fish that can weigh up to 55 pounds, has been spotted in Lake Lou Yaeger in Illinois, KSDK reports.

according to British fisherman Jeremy Wade, the pacu is known as the “ball cutter.” In 2011, Wade said locals informed him that two fisherman had died from blood loss after something in the water had bitten off their testicles, according to the Metro.

“The locals told me that this thing was like a human in the water, biting at the testicles of fishermen,” Wade said.

Nope, I have not forgotten about Neal Rauhauser or Brett Kimberlin

Neither has Bob Belvedere, who has been all over this story since it broke. Today he posted some eye-opening info that you ought to read

One aspect of Brett Kimberlin’s life story that’s easy to forget is the incidents that led him to commit those acts of domestic terrorism that won him the title of The Speedway Bomber.  They involve the possible rape of a young girl, possibly starting at the age of ten, and the brutal murder of that girl’s Grandmother.

Yesterday, Stacy McCain provided us with some of the sordid details of this aspect of the story of Brett Kimberlin.  A highlight:

FROM AN UNDISCLOSED LOCATION

We do not actually know the name of the girl who was reportedly “groomed” by Brett Kimberlin. Mark Singer used the pseudonym “Jessica” for Sandi Barton’s youngest daughter, whereas a 1981 news article by Joe Gelarten of the Indianapolis Star used the name ”Debbie.”

Jessica/Debbie was 10 years old when Kimberlin, 20 at the time, entered her life in 1974, and she was 14 when her grandmother, 65-year-old Julia Scyphers, was murdered – a crime that remains officially unsolved to this day.

Bob also links to some possibly bad news for Rauhauser, the noose may be getting a tad tight

Retired Chicago Police Officer Peter Bella knows exactly what the Kimberlin/Rauhauser Cell are up to, as you will see by reading his latest column here [tip of the fedora to Aaron Walker]: This item from that post is very interesting [and some damn good investigative reporting]:

A self-described “black” operator, who demands to remain anonymous, knows Neal Rauhauser. He claims Rauhauser is an “extremely dangerous individual”. He said Rauhauser is not only a dangerous political and digital operative; he is “personally dangerous”.

Neal Rauhauser owes close to thirty five thousand dollars in back child support, which is a state and federal crime. His children are reportedly on state Medicare. Yet, he shows up in public places, like courtrooms without fear of arrest*. He travels the country in his quest for clients, public exposure, and big money. He allegedly invests heavily in computers and technology.

Rauhauser claims to work or worked for Infraguard, a public and private security partnership run under the auspices of the F.B.I. According to their website all members must pass a rigorous background check. That kind of check would have prohibited Rauhauser from being a member and possibly led to his arrest.

___
*Warrants are supposedly being reissued for Mr. Rauhauser’s arrest for being a ‘dead beat dad.’ There is also an allegation Rauhauser has an outstanding unspecified criminal warrant in Illinois.

Congressman: Holder’s Race-Card Play ‘Orchestrated’ By Obama

Congressman: Holder’s Race-Card Play ‘Orchestrated’ By Obama – Daily Caller

Illinois Republican Rep. Joe Walsh, one of the first members of Congress to demand Attorney General Eric Holder resign over the ill-fated Operation Fast and Furious gun-walking program, told The Daily Caller that Holder’s recent use of racial politics to attack his critics appears to be something President Barack Obama “orchestrated.”

Walsh agrees with Florida Republican Rep. Allen West’s assessment of Holder’s behavior, saying Holder’s race card is the “last card in the deck.”

“This is sort of the last refuge that people on the left will go to when they’re in trouble,” Walsh said in a phone interview. “They’ll accuse their opponents of racism. My God, we’ve got tons of problems in this country and … this president, is through Eric Holder, saying, ‘Nope, you can’t criticize me. If you criticize me, we’re going to accuse you of racism.’ Shame on them, that’s terrible.”

Walsh said Obama’s continued silence in the face of Holder’s inflammatory rhetoric demonstrates that the president shares in the blame for the attorney general’s choice of words.

“His [Obama’s] silence, to me, tells me the president is complicit in this,” Walsh said. “And, even if he does come out and say something, I can’t believe Eric Holder can even make a statement like that. In his statement he refers to himself and the president. I can’t believe that Eric Holder made that statement without either understanding that the president agreed with it, or [that] he had the president’s permission to say this.”

In a front page story, Holder told The Sunday New York Times that he thinks his critics are motivated by race. Holder said some unspecified faction — which he referred to as the “more extreme segment” — is driven to criticize both him and President Barack Obama because of the color of their skin.

“This is a way to get at the president because of the way I can be identified with him,” Holder said, according to the Times. “Both due to the nature of our relationship and, you know, the fact that we’re both African-American.”

Walsh said Holder’s use of racial politics can also be explained by pressure the attorney general is feeling from a groundswell of House members demanding his resignation. To date 60 congressmen, two senators, every major Republican presidential candidate and two sitting governors have asked Holder to step down over the Operation Fast and Furious scandal.

Additionally, 75 House members have signed on to a House resolution calling for a vote of “no confidence” in Holder as attorney general. Between the two lists, there are 86 in the House who disapprove of Holder continuing to lead the DOJ.

Walsh said Holder’s comments appear to be a small-scale preview of the 2012 election season when Obama “will do anything to get re-elected.”

“This is so despicable, because what they’re doing is they’re trying real early now to lay down the ground rules for his re-election,” Walsh said. “This time around, the American people are not going to put up with it. We can criticize this president based on the job he’s done — I don’t care what his skin color is.”

“He is going to say, because he did this during the last election, and the media is going to enable him to get away with it, that any time we criticize him, it’s because of his race,” Walsh added. “For Eric Holder to take that same line right now is absolutely ridiculous and to me, it’s just more fodder proving that he needs to resign.”

White House spokesman Eric Schultz confirmed that he received The Daily Caller’s questions about whether President Obama agrees with Holder’s characterization of his critics as racists. Schultz promised to answer the question on Monday, but he had not responded at press time.

Earlier this year, the state of Illinois moved to force religious-based children’s services to break their religious principles and give children in their charge to homosexual couples. Organizations such as Catholic Charities have been told by the state that they either break their religious principles or face being shut down by the state. So, pursuant to that agenda, the state has determined that all children currently in the hands of religious adoption agencies need to be removed immediately.

So, the State will uproot kids, and treat them as pawns in a game of PC?

So what was so bad that the State of Illinois felt it necessary to take all children away from religious-based organizations? Have there been cases of abuse? Perhaps children’s services from religious-based groups have been rated lowly? Have adopting parents complained?

None of the above. In fact, there is no substantive reason at all for this attack on religious-based children’s services in the Land of Lincoln. Well, no reason except for a left-wing, pro-homosexual political agenda, that is.

You see, the state received precisely one complaint about Catholic Charities. It was from an activist homosexual who complained that the religious-based adoption agencies in the state would not willingly give children up to homosexual couples.

Personally, I would prefer that a child be adopted by a Gay couple, if that couple were deemed suitable, than for the child to remain without a family. Of course, I think the optimal solution is for a married Hetrasexual couple to be given priority. But regardless of my own feelings, there is no reason for the Sate to act in this manner, none at all.

Once more Liberal ideology has, in the name of doing something “for the children” have completely disregarded the children. Why can’t Liberals just be honest, for once, and say, “it is for political correctness”?
