Here’s Something That Little Commie Bitch Bob Costas Won’t Tell You

Chicago Shootings Spike 49% In November Despite Country’s Strictest Gun Laws – Weasel Zippers

Bob Costas unavailable for comment.

Via CNS News:

There were 192 shootings in Chicago throughout the month of November – a 49 percent increase from a year earlier – according to police records obtained by the Chicago Tribune.

In November of 2011, Chicago recorded 129 shootings compared to the 192 shootings this November. Police records also reveal that shootings increased more than 11 percent in the first 11 months of 2012 compared with a year earlier.

Total homicides in Chicago rose to 480 for the first eleven months of 2012; a 21 percent increase from last year. On November 30, 2012, there were four fatal shootings within the city. These murders brought the homicide total to 38 for the month, just above the 37 recorded in November of last year.

Despite having some of the strictest gun laws in the country, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel plans on restricting gun ownership further by banning individuals with a violent misdemeanor conviction from getting a gun permit for five years. The mayor also hopes to ban convicted felons from ever owning a gun.

Do you believe in polls, or people?

Stacy McCain, who is up to no good in Ohio, poses that question, and with darned good reason. Personally, I think all those polls are cooked, to depress GOP voter turnout, and, truth be told, Obama is headed for a fairly bad loss in November. Stacy offers up a good report from Toledo

OK, if you believe the polls, Mitt Romney’s 10 points behind in Ohio. But then there are those people — THOUSANDS of people — who stood in line in the rain to get in to see Mitt this afternoon in downtown Toledo:

Well those folks likely never got polled, which, again, begs the question

Do you believe in the polls, or do you believe in thepeople?

PEOPLE! People fed up with the worst president in America’s history. People fed up with Obama’s war on the economy, and his bumbling foreign policy, and runaway spending, and so on. And yes, people fed up with biased reporting

Jim Acosta of CNN got an exclusive one-on-one interview with Mitt Romney yesterday in order that he could ask Mitt this ridiculous question:

“African-Americans have a tremendous sense of pride that there is the first African-American president in the White House. If you were to somehow beat the first African-American president, what would you say to the black community to assure them that you would be their president also?”

Noel Sheppard of Newsbusters says Acosta “should be ashamed of himself,” but what shocks me is that, instead of punching Acosta in the face, Romney politely answered the question:

“I want to be the president of all the people of America. I want to help all the people of America. You don’t get into a race like this with myself and my family and do the kind of work and commitment that we’ve put forward without the passion to help all of America. And the people who really need the help right now are the people in the middle class, people who have fallen into poverty. I know how to get them help. The president doesn’t.”

That was a good answer, but watching Mitt punch Acosta in the face would have been fun too, and talk about blogging gold? WOW! Stacy agrees

Show of hands: How many of our readers would like to see Mitt Romney punch out a network reporter on live TV? 

Yeah — it’s unanimous. Do it, Mitt.

There ya go, Pugilists for Mitt!

The unbearable price of ignorance

 

The Left has advanced its agenda in America for many reasons. Their campaign of division, splitting Americans into groups based on race, gender, sexual orientation, and class has been extremely successful. So have their willingness to lie, and to smear political opponents. Those two tactics are not the only ones the Left uses however. Their is ignorance, specifically voter ignorance too.

John at Conservative Hideout has a great post about the damage uninformed voters cause

The greatest threat to our liberties is not the average politician.  The greatest threat to our liberties is the ignorant voter; the voter who doesn’t take the time to do their homework in regards to the issues.  These are voters who vote by name recognition or by party affiliation.  These are voters who check the party box on the ballot.  These are voters who have a myopic view of America and continuously spew the talking points of the politician they support even if it’s factually wrong.  They are the Kool-Aid drinkers and part of the rainbows and unicorns crowd.  They believe the lie before the truth and claim the truth is a lie.  They feel and vote based on emotions rather than facts.  They put as much thought into the politician they support as the last minute Christmas shopper puts into the gift they’re buying before the stores close; they settle for what’s left on the shelves.  Each of us has had our own experience with people like this.  They think they know more than they actually do.  And this is the kind of voter the left needs to advance their agenda.

George Washington believed that intelligent voters was a key in retaining our republic. He was absolutely right. I have come to believe that one of the biggest reasons the Left pushes so hard for a “right” to a college education is to have more time to indoctrinate, or dumb down our youth. This is also the same reason they push for mandatory pre-school, and sell the “it takes a village” line of thought. The fact is the Left realizes that voters who are indoctrinated from ages four, or less, until their early twenties are more easily led to vote for the emotionalistic rhetoric of the Left. Just as those who believe that their entire identity revolves around gender, skin color, or sexual orientation are more likely to vote for Leftist candidates. John at Conservative Hideout illustrates this truth

The ignorant voter will buy into the misleading campaign ads the left is throwing out there.  They won’t take the time to do the research because they get ensnared in the emotional narrative the left lays out for them.  And the left is counting on these voters this November.  Without them and their ignorance they cannot win.  With them, they have plenty of fuel to propel them to victory.  The only way the left has a chance this November is to divert our attention away from the issues that matter.  They have been attempting to do this with class warfare, the war on women, and Romney’s tax returns.  As misguided as the left is they are passionate creatures who believe in their cause.  They believe the ends justify the means and will sink to extraordinary lows to attack an opponent or change the national discussion from the issues that really matter.  The latest anti-Romney ad that claims Romney’s actions while he was at Bain Capital indirectly led to the death of a woman who lost her health insurance when her husband was laid–off is absolutely heart-wrenching.  The problem is it’s extremely misleading; but this doesn’t matter to the Kool-Aid drinkers; they are emotional and are moved by the misleading story.  The misleading story strikes a chord with them.  This kind of campaign ad is designed to target ignorant voters because the left knows the ignorant voter will not do the research or will ignore the facts when they are presented to them.  It’s designed to plant the seeds of doubt about Romney and depict him as an uncaring rich guy who doesn’t give a crap about the average American.  So what can we do counter this?

Excellent piece, go read it all. John lays out some good ideas for countering the Left.

 

Obama: Hard work has nothing to do with success

Anyone who votes for Obama in November is simply a moron

Official White House transcript:

“There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me — because they want to give something back. They know they didn’t — look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something — there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there.

If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.

The closest this buffoon come stop anything close to a rational statement is this sentence here “Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive.”

Yes. Yes, Yes! We have an incredible system that allows for small government, which in turn allows people the opportunity to achieve success. It is that very system that Obama has been trying to cripple for going on years now. The system he mentions is one he despises. The rest of the statement above is nothing more than class warfare. The same old BS.

Four years ago, Obama ran a campaign of lies and deceit. He pretended to be something he clearly is not. Now, he has to run on what he is, and the result is his mask is lifted a bit more with every speech. And the fact is that Americans are not liking the face of Leftism they see.

OK, who did not see THIS coming? UPDATED! 38% of union voters went with Walker! UPDATE!! Ed Schultz lectures union voters who voted for Walker

Gov. Walker easily wins the Wisconsin recall vote. What will Al Sharpton do?

A-Accept defeat graciously

B- Go work on his hair

C Scream VOTER SUPPRESSION!

If you voted C, well, you are right!

MSNBC “PoliticsNation” host Al Sharpon was the latest of MSNBC’s on-air talent to express displeasure, or put a positive spin, on Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s win in Wisconsin Tuesday night, blaming “voter-suppression schemes” for the Democrats’ loss.

“This Wisconsin recall election, I think I did my commentary from the Washington, D.C. office this morning,” Sharpton said. “It really is a wake-up call, because despite that fact that clearly money was one of the main factors, it’s not going anywhere by November. If anything, I think that it has emboldened the right wing, it has emboldened these billionaires. There was all kinds of voter-suppression schemes from ID [cards required to vote], to not letting students vote and registration.”

Sharpton told his audience that this is a sign of things to come for this fall’s general election and encouraged his listeners to “double-down and get ready to fight.”

“It almost was a test run on what they’re going to do in November,” he continued. “The question is what are we going to do about it? We can either act like it means nothing and it’s like in a fight — you got your head hit and you’re groggy and you’re going to be in denial — or you’re going to admit that somebody hit you hard, clear your head and let’s double-down and get ready to fight.”

Good Freaking Grief, these parasites are so predictable.

UPDATE! Sharpton might want to blame those damned union guys

(CNSNews.com) — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says “there’s no doubt” that union members were among those who voted to keep him in office in Tuesday’s recall election.

The network exit poll for the special election showed that Walker won the votes of 38 percent of voters who said they were a union member or lived in a household with a union member.

“I’m talking to workers here this morning, talked to a lot of manufacturers across the state over the last year and a half, but particularly the last months in this campaign, and I find that at plant after plant, there are construction workers and others in manufacturing who appreciate the fact that we turned our state around. And I think they wanted more of that in the future,” Walker told Fox & Friends Wednesday morning. “They wanted us to go forward.”

The exit poll showing that Walker got 38 percent of the vote from people living in union households was conducted by Edison Research for ABC News, CBS News, NBC News, CNN, Fox News and the Associated Press.

Walker said he’s heard voters complain for years that when politicians get into office, they’re not willing to take on the tough challenges.

UPDATE!! Of course, union butt boy Ed Schultz is furious at union members who voted for Walker! 

On Wednesday’s The Ed Show, MSNBC host Ed Schultz took a lecturing and even mocking tone toward labor union members who voted for Governor Scott Walker in Tuesday’s recall election in Wisconsin as he recounted NBC News exit poll numbers showing that a significant chunk of union voters supported the Wisconsin Republican.

The MSNBC host ended up invoking President Obama’s assertion from the 2008 campaign that people in rural areas vote for Republicans because of a tendency to “cling” to guns and religion, and suggested that Obama was correct in his diagnosis of what he viewed as a problem that some union members in rural areas vote for Republicans instead of sticking with the union line.

Hey Ed, pull your head out of the union bosses asses and hear this. This was not a union election Ed! People actually had a right to vote their conscience!
