Illegal Aliens Arrive On Bus To Shop At North Carolina Walmart With Taxpayer-Funded Debit Cards (Video)

Obama’s Illegal Alien ‘Youth’ Arrive In Bus And Shop At Walmart With Federal Debit Cards… Money Taken Out Of Your Paycheck – Pat Dollard

Excerpted from Mad World News: If we were to listen only to the mainstream media and the talking points from the White House, they would have us believe that not only is the government doing everything possible in order to stop the invasion of our Southern border, but those who are crossing are refugee children who can’t be turned away. However, a video that was recorded on Sunday by a North Carolina woman places serious doubts on whether or not either of those things are true, as it allegedly shows busloads of adult illegal immigrants getting dropped off at a local Walmart to shop for supplies for their shelter.

Sylvia Locklear was on her lunch break Sunday afternoon around 1:30 p.m. when she noticed something strange happening in the parking lot of Walmart in Concord, NC – there was busloads of what appeared to be adult illegal immigrants being dropped off to shop for everything from food to pillows and blankets.

We all know that this has been happening, however, the sheriff of her town had said that they weren’t allowing any illegals to be shipped in, so it would appear as if the Obama regime is once again placing undue burdens on the states and not even letting them know what’s going on. What’s worse is that in the comments under the video she posted to Facebook, Sylvia said that when she was in line behind them that they were using government-issued EBT cards to pay for their purchases.

Taxpayer-Funded Planned Parenthood Produces Video Promoting Teen Bondage And Sadomasochism

Planned Parenthood Produces Video Promoting Bondage And Sadomasochism To Teens – CNS

Planned Parenthood of Northern New England (PPNNE) – which received more than $2.75 million in government funding in 2012 – has produced and posted online a video specifically aimed at teenagers that promotes bondage and sadomasochism (BDSM) and proposes “rules” to follow when engaging in these activities.

“People sometimes think that those who practice BDSM are emotionally scarred or were once abused – not true, it’s a total myth,” the host of the video, Laci Green, informs its intended audience of teens.

“BDSM relies upon and creates trust,” she says.

In a message published at the beginning of PPNNE’s 2012 annual report, PPNNE President Meagan Gallagher described the genesis of the project that produced the video on bondage and sadomasochism.

.

.
“We continued to grow our online presence, and launched an innovative social education project called ‘A Naked Notion’ (anakednotion.org),” wrote Gallagher. “The numbers show that young people took notice – PPNNE’s ‘A Naked Notion’ YouTube channel has been viewed more than a million times!”

The homepage of PPNNE’s website includes a menu of tabs that lead to internal pages. One of these is entitled “For Teens.”

“We are dedicated to protecting the sexual health of teens by providing accurate information, opportunities to explore and establish beliefs and attitudes, and the skills to communicate their needs,” says PPNNE’s “For Teens” page.

“For teens who are sexually involved, Planned Parenthood is committed to providing resources for safeguarding their emotional and physical health,” it says.

.

.
The “For Teens” page also includes a tab leading directly to the PPNNE website’s “A Naked Notion With Laci Green” page and also a tab leading to PPNNE’s “Teen Resource Center,” which features a link to the YouTube page for “A Naked Notion With Lace Green.”

In its 2012 annual report, PPNNE said “A Naked Notion” reached “young adults” through Facebook and YouTube. “Launched ‘A Naked Notion; (anakednotion.org), a social media education project, reaching more than 2,300 young adults through Facebook and more than 11,382 on YouTube, where it has garnered more than 1,005,655 views,” said the report.

“A Naked Notion is a brand new project dedicated to frank, open conversations about sexuality,” says the PPNNE webpage for the program. “It stars sex educator Laci Green and is brought to you by Planned Parenthood of Northern New England.

Green is described by PPNNE’s website as a “22 year old San-Franciscan” and a “Sex educator, video blogger, blog blogger, crisis counselor, social scientist, asparagus lover & artichoke dipper.”

One of PPNNE’s Naked Notion videos – “Getting Kinky (BDSM 101)” – features Green telling teenagers that October is “national kink month” and a good time to talk about bondage and sadomasochism.

“According to some random websites, October has been officially declared national kink month,” says Green on the video. “And when you think about it – October and kink–they are kind of a fitting pair. Halloween and kink are both about adventure and fun and exploring rolls and dynamics that are maybe a little bit different from everyday life. So many of the common kinks out there fall under the umbrella of BDSM. You may have heard of BDSM what with all of the 50-Shades-of-Gray craze and sort of getting a lot of attention right now.

“Today,” says Green, “I want to talk about what BDSM is, what it isn’t, and some of the rules that come with it.”

“People sometimes think that those who practice BDSM are emotionally scarred or were once abused—not true, it’s a total myth,” Green says later in the video. “People across the spectrum with various backgrounds participate in BDSM. The pain-is-exhilaration concept is not only old as dirt, it’s pretty common outside the bedroom.”

Before laying out a set of actual rules to follow when engaging in BDSM, Green seeks to reassure her audience that BDSM is not “abuse” and “has rules, limits and boundaries that are respected by all parties.”

“The idea of using power and control and pain in a set scene understandably sets off alarms in some people’s heads,” says Green.

“They hear that BDSM involves spanking and pain and torture – oh, my God, it’s scary stuff,” says Green. “With no further knowledge, it’s easy to conflate BDSM with abuse. But BDSM and abuse are actually very different. BDSM is about a consensual power exchange. Abuse is not. BDSM is negotiated and agreed upon before anything happens. Abuse is not. BDSM has rules, limits and boundaries that are respected by all parties. Abuse does not. BDSM relies upon and creates trust.”

According to PPNNE’s 2012 annual report, it received $2,755,235 million in federal, state, and local funding, which accounted for 15 percent of its $18.9 million annual operating budget. PPNNE also received $255,000 in federal Health Information Technology (HIT) funding.

CNSNews.com called PPNNE president and CEO Meagan Gallagher and Dr. Donna Burkett, the group’s medical director, numerous times over the course of three days to ask why the group thought it was appropriate for a tax-funded organization to promote bondage and sadomasochism to teenagers. A staff member later confirmed that Gallagher received the messages.

A woman answering the phone at the group’s Burlington, Vermont headquarters on Tuesday told CNSNews: “We are currently not commenting or talking to you. At this point, I am going to disconnect” before hanging up the phone.

On Wednesday, CNSNews.com called PPNNE’s office in Burlington again and asked the person who answered the phone to relay this question to Gallagher: “Why is it appropriate for a federally funded organization to produce a video that promotes bondage, sadism and masochism to teens?” The person said that the organization would not be commenting and then hung up the phone.

CNSNews.com also contacted all the members of the New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont congressional delegations and asked them whether they thought it was appropriate for a federally funded organization to produce a video promoting bondage and sadomasochism to teens.

Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) was the only member of Congress to reply. According to spokesman Jeff Grappone, “Senator Ayotte thinks this video, which is clearly targeted at a younger audience, is inappropriate and troubling. She believes taxpayers shouldn’t be directly or indirectly funding activity like this.”

However, despite repeated requests for comment, Rep. Peter Welch (D-VT), Rep. Chellie Pingree (D-ME), Rep. Michael Michaud (D-ME), Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (D-NH), and Rep. Ann Kuster (D-NH) did not respond.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT), Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), Sen. Angus King (I-ME), and Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) also dodged CNSNews.com’s questions.

Don’t Worry, I’m Sure Obama Will Help These Folks… Once He Returns From His Taxpayer-Funded Vacation

Obama’s Broken Promises To Sandy Victims – Washington Free Beacon

Six weeks after Sandy hit the New Jersey and New York coast, residents are still struggling and in desperate need of shelter. Many hard-hit victims are not getting help despite President Barack Obama’s pledge of the full support of the federal government, and they are dealing with red tape the president said would not be tolerated.

In the Red Hook community of Brooklyn, N.Y., many residents are still living in their unheated, powerless homes in freezing temperatures. Help from the government for residents has not come.

One victim from the Midland Beach section of Staten Island is living out of his car, going from one house to another each day in search of a warm bed. Dozens of residents are living in their sewer-flooded homes without heat or power in Gerritsen Beach.

Thousands living in hotels courtesy of FEMA are about to lose their rooms. Hotel stays for victims are set to expire on Dec. 13. That would force tens of thousands into the cold, which could prove a public relations disaster for the Obama administration and FEMA.

“Some people are camping in their homes,” said Kirby Desmarais, volunteer coordinator for Red Hook Volunteers, a group affiliated with the Red Hook Coalition. Desmarais did not have an exact number of those in Red Hook who are living in homes without power or heat in freezing temperatures. But she said it is “a lot.”

Red Hook, located a few blocks from New York Harbor and the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, was hit hard. The harbor flooded homes and damaged residents’ furnaces and basement electrical boxes. Many residences remain in the dark.

When asked how well the government is responding to the crisis, Desmarais said that it is a “hard question to answer… We had no help for 12 days. The Red Cross and the National Guard, they came too late to help.”

According to Desmarais, other residents have stayed because they want their children to attend school and maintain some form of normalcy instead of being bussed away and having to stay in a shelter. Others remain because they are afraid their homes will be looted if they leave.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg said in a recent radio address that his office is doing his part to help those victims of Sandy.

“We’ve continued going door-to-door in areas hit by Sandy, giving electric blankets to residents who have power but no heat, warning them about hypothermia and the serious health hazards of using gas ovens and ranges for heat and letting them know that the staff at the Restoration Centers can help them find warm places to stay,” Bloomberg said.

The Washington Free Beacon called Bloomberg’s office for comment and was told to submit questions via email. Six days later, questions about the number of displaced residents, if temporary housing units (THUs) by FEMA are being considered, and the length of the city’s Rapid Repairs program’s waiting list have been unanswered.

Staten Island resident Billy Stout said he is living out of his car and jumping from one house to another.

“It’s tough,” he said.

Stout went to FEMA for assistance and was told he should apply for a SBA loan. He asked why he would apply for a loan as he is disabled and on Social Security disability. He said FEMA told him that once he’s denied for the loan they could give him assistance. That assistance came after three weeks in the amount of $2,400. He cannot find a rental unless he travels two hours away.

“I don’t think the government has done enough. They could be doing more,” said Stout, suggesting FEMA “could put up trailers at the closed Arthur Kill Correctional Facility or at Miller’s Field. There is so much space there. Then people would have a warm place to stay. I don’t know why they don’t do that.”

He said many people are in his position without a set place to stay and having difficulty finding a rental.

Victoria Hagman, whose first floor was flooded in Red Hook, said she is unable to find a rental and is staying with friends. A realtor by trade, she said, “There’s a shortage of rentals.”

She also said that the rental allowance given by FEMA is far too little for the rental prices in the area.

The WFB reported last week that about 92 FEMA trailers were sitting idle in Pennsylvania while nearby residents in New York were told FEMA did not have appropriate trailers for their needs. The day after the story appeared, Sen. Bob Casey (D., Pa.) released a letter he sent to Craig Fugate, the administrator of FEMA, urging him to consider the unused trailers in Northeastern Pennsylvania to aid New York and New Jersey Sandy victims.

“It has come to my attention that there are FEMA Temporary Housing Units that are vacant and available in northeastern Pennsylvania,” Casey wrote to Fugate. “I understand that a formal request for Temporary Housing Units must be made by the state wishing to use them. Due to the proximity of the vacant Temporary Housing Units in northeastern Pennsylvania to locations affected by Hurricane Sandy, I respectfully request that FEMA work with the affected states to evaluate whether these units could be used by storm victims in need of housing.”

Pennsylvania is not the only state with unused FEMA trailers at their disposal. According to a story last week in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, around 520 trailers in Joplin, Mo., are unoccupied.

Lynn Onstot, Joplin’s public information officer, declined to comment on the unoccupied trailers.

“I am going to have to refer you onto FEMA Region VII office out of Kansas City. The temporary housing units are provided and managed by FEMA and they would be the contact for this question,” she wrote in an email.

Gerritsen Beach Cares Sandy Relief has started a petition urging Bloomberg and Gov. Andrew Cuomo to bring the idle trailers and any other unused trailers to Gerritsen Beach.

“The situation is getting worse for Gerritsen Beach residents that do not have the funds to repair the severe damage caused by this natural disaster. They need more help and support than they have already received in order to survive,” the petition states. The plea for help had over 1,600 signatures.

FEMA’s response regarding trailers in New York has been that its resources in the state for rental assistance and the Rapids Repairs program would help the most people possible. NY1 News asked FEMA this week about the idle trailers sitting in Pennsylvania, and the agency said its THUs are much bigger than RVs and campers and would not fit in people’s driveways or front yards.

However, the Free Beacon found that FEMA’s housing units may not be limited to these trailers. Three types of manufactured housing – mobile homes, park models, and travel trailers—have been used and owned by FEMA. The travel trailers are similar to motor homes and come on wheels. They can be parked on someone’s yard or driveway.

FEMA did not respond to an email request for information regarding how many travel trailers are in its inventory. However, a review of records shows that FEMA reported it had about 130,000 THUs in its inventory, including travel trailers, in 2009. Its plan was to retain 7,200 units and dispose of 121,000 units in an auction. Those auctions took place in 2010.

Desmarais said motor homes, similar to the FEMA travel trailers, also would be a great solution for those in Red Hook.

“That would be awesome,” she said, when asked if motor homes could accommodate residents’ who are freezing.

Employees At Taxpayer-Funded Chevy Volt Battery Factory Spend Days Playing Cards, Watching Movies

Employees At Taxpayer-Funded Chevy Volt Battery Factory Spend Days Playing Cards, Watching Movies – Weasel Zippers

The Voltron boondoggle continues.

HOLLAND, Mich. (WOOD) – Workers at LG Chem, a $300 million lithium-ion battery plant heavily funded by taxpayers, tell Target 8 that they have so little work to do that they spend hours playing cards and board games, reading magazines or watching movies.

They say it’s been going on for months.

“There would be up to 40 of us that would just sit in there during the day,” said former LG Chem employee Nicole Merryman, who said she quit in May.

“We were given assignments to go outside and clean; if we weren’t cleaning outside, we were cleaning inside. If there was nothing for us to do, we would study in the cafeteria, or we would sit and play cards, sit and read magazines,” said Merryman. “It’s really sad that all these people are sitting there and doing nothing, and it’s basically on taxpayer money.”

Two current employees told Target 8 that the game-playing continues because, as much as they want to work, they still have nothing to do.

“There’s a whole bunch of people, a whole bunch,” filling their time with card games and board games,” one of those current employees said.

That employee says some workers are doing odd jobs around the building, including cleaning and maintenance, while others hang out in the cafeteria playing video games, Texas hold-’em and Monopoly or doing Sudoku or crossword puzzles – all on company time. The employee said some watch movies.

“There’s no work, no work at all. Zero work,” another current employee said. “It is what it is. What do you do when there’s no work?”

Taxpayer-Funded Fisker Issues Second Recall Of Electric Car

Fisker Issues Second Recall Of Electric Car – ABC News

After the second of two mysterious fires in a Karma sedan, the government-backed electric car-maker Fisker has initiated a voluntary recall of its luxury vehicles.

In a statement, Fisker spokesman Roger Ormisher said that Fisker engineers and an independent fire expert had “identified the root cause” of a fire that swept through a Karma parked outside a Woodside, California grocery store on August 10.

“The investigation located the ignition source to the left front of the Karma, forward of the wheel, where the low-temperature cooling fan is located,” said the statement. “The final conclusion was that this sealed component had an internal fault that caused it to fail, overheat and start a slow burning fire.”

Fisker announced a voluntary recall “with respect to this cooling fan unit” and said it had already contacted its retailers.

As first reported by Jalopnik.com, the owner found the vehicle burning in the parking lot when he returned from shopping. At the time, the Woodside Fire Department said the immediate cause of the blaze appeared to be “heat from powered equipment,” and firefighters cut the car’s battery cable after putting out the fire. Woodside Fire Chief Dan Ghiorso told ABC News that the origin of the fire appeared to be inside the engine compartment, though Fisker said in a statement that it was determined to be outside the compartment in an area “forward of the driver’s side front tire.”

Ghiorso said Monday that he did not dispute Fisker’s new findings about the origin of the blaze. The fire did not cause any injuries but did cause damage to an adjacent vehicle, according to the Woodside Fire Department.

The fire is the second mysterious blaze in a Fisker Karma in 2012. Earlier this year, a Fisker Karma parked in the garage of a Sugar Land, Texas home caught fire, destroying a portion of the residence. Fire officials blamed the electric vehicle for the fire, according to media reports, but Fisker contended that neither the car nor its battery had anything to do with the fire, since the car was unplugged at the time of the fire and the battery pack was intact and still working after the blaze.

In March, another Karma broke down in the middle of a Consumer Reports road test, a failure that Fisker later said was due to a faulty battery.

More than 250 Fisker Karmas, out of the more than 1,000 that the company says are on the road, have been subject to a recall over the last year due to problems with the cars’ lithium ion batteries that could have led to fires in the $102,000 cars.

In its new statement on the cause of the Woodside fire, Fisker noted that its independent experts had determined the fire “was not caused by the lithium-ion battery pack.”

In 2010, the Department of Energy awarded Fisker a $529 million green-energy loan, in part to help purchase a shuttered General Motors plant in Delaware, where it predicted it would one day employ 2,000 auto workers to assemble a clean-burning gas-electric family car, known as the Atlantic.

Fisker collected nearly $200 million until February this year, when the government froze the loan because the company was failing to meet the government’s milestones. Most of those federal funds went into bringing the Karma, which Fisker assembles in Finland, to the U.S. market.

Company executives began hinting in February that Fisker would reconsider its plan and look for a cheaper place to build the Atlantic, despite the federal funding it received to build in the U.S.

“If Fisker no longer gets government monies, then obviously we are in a place where other options are open to us and have to be considered from a business perspective,” Roger Ormisher told ABC News in May. “However, given the work that we have done at the plant in Delaware and the fact that we own it, it is still our primary option to consider.”

Ormisher reiterated to ABC News earlier this month that Delaware “is still very much our first choice. We own it. We’ve cleared it out. We’ve actually made it production-ready.”

Ormisher also said that negotiations with the DOE were ongoing. “We’re hoping for a conclusion fairly soon,” he said.

Thanks Barack… Taxpayer-Funded Green Energy Company Handed To Chinese

Taxpayer-Funded A 123 Green Energy Company Handed To Chinese – Big Government

A 123 Systems, the “green,” federal stimulus-funded lithium ion battery manufacturer, announced atrocious quarterly results today. Most expected that A 123‘s results would be dark red. What was a surprise was the simultaneous announcement that the company had entered into a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with a Chinese industrial group, Wanxiang, that will give the Chinese control of the company.

Remember that A 123 is the battery supplier to electric car-maker Fisker, and is also an investor in Fisker. It’s also the third US lithium ion battery manufacturer to go under. The other two advanced “green” battery failures were ENER1 and Valence. But the other two simply expired; there was no resuscitation attempt by a large Chinese industrial group.

Senator Charles Grassley of Iowa has been conducting an investigation into A 123 and Fisker – and the Department of Energy money that has been spent on these two companies to support Secretary of Energy Steven Chu’s pipe dream for automotive transportation. I personally told the Senate in outside witness testimony 30 months ago that the A 123 and Fisker story would end in failure.

Not that the Senate at that time paid any attention. It is a sad testament to the state of affairs in our country that a chemical engineer sitting in his back bedroom has more vision of the future than the National Academy of Sciences and the entire DOE. Of course, the chemical engineer had no economic or political motive, and looked at the thermodynamic problem while all others were on the gravy train. I have written a book for laypeople that explains energy and sustainability in simple terms. Now that billions have been wasted by our elected officials, perhaps I should invite members of Congress to read the book and gain some insight into the “green” stimulus failure.

Wanxiang is a Chinese auto parts maker, and of course it can bring some financial stability to A 123 – if it pours in money. Its problem will be that even if it uses sweatshop labor, the costs of the batteries will simply not come down by much, as there is not much of a labor component in the batteries. That is partly why I wrote my thesis to the US Senate. The CEO of A 123, Mr. David Vieau, still has the hope that this new investment after all the other investments will bring A 123 to the promised land. Good luck.

The A 123 story may make the Solyndra scandal look clean by comparison. The Solyndra structure was via loan guarantees, and when Solyndra went out of business the DOE had some control over the disposition of the assets and know-how of the company. The Chinese were prevented from buying Solyndra for a song and gaining the knowledge that tax payers and investors had spent a lot of money to gain. By contrast, the A 123 structure is a complete failure in protecting taxpayers. The money was given to A 123 by the DOE as a grant with essentially no strings attached as to how the assets and know-how of the company could be transferred.

Note how Senators John Kerry (D-MA), Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), Carl Levin (D-MI), Jeff Bingaman (D-NM), and Representatives Ed Markey (D-MA) and John Dingell (D-MI) all stated the wonders of A 123 back on August 5, 2009.

These quotes are from an A 123 press release on that day:

Senator Kerry

“For those of us in Massachusetts who have been pushing for years to secure investments to make America the world’s leader in the domestic advanced battery field, this announcement is terrific news,” said Sen. John Kerry. “A123Systems is doing the kind of cutting edge work we need to get our manufacturing industry back on track and create jobs here at home. Not only will these batteries help us decrease our dependence on foreign oil, they will help us compete and win on a global playing field. These grants are a wise investment that will pay many dividends.”

Senator Stabenow

“This grant will help promote a 21st century manufacturing strategy that creates a more energy independent country while putting the Americans back to work. The investment will support an infrastructure that will allow Michigan and the rest of the nation to lead the world in innovation in automotive and clean energy technologies,” said Senator Debbie Stabenow.

Senator Levin

“We are at a critical juncture both in terms of the commercialization of advanced battery technology and the economic recovery. By providing financial incentives for battery development and production, this grant is a major step by the government towards reducing our dependence on foreign oil, creating jobs and enabling the U.S. to compete globally to produce green vehicles,” said Senator Carl Levin.

Congressman Markey

“We shouldn’t have to trade a reliance on Middle Eastern oil for East Asian batteries. Through these grants, A123 and other American clean tech companies will re-energize our economy, re-establish America as a technology leader, and renew our commitment to a better environment. I congratulate A123 for receiving this prestigious grant,” said Congressman Ed Markey.

Congressman Dingell

“I want to congratulate A123Systems, one of Michigan’s own, for the grant it received today. This federal investment is the ultimate vote of confidence in the company and the advanced batteries it has produced and will continue to produce. In view of other countries’ efforts to assist their domestic manufacturers, I feel it imperative that we do the same in the United States. A123 will play a key role in Michigan’s transformation into a high-tech economic powerhouse, and I would hope that today’s grant announcement is the first of many for this great company,” said Congressman John Dingell.

Senator Bingaman

“The investment that President Obama announced today is a hopeful sign that the U.S. is reversing the recent trend of seeing ideas invented in this country commercialized overseas. It’s one of many steps that our nation must take in the next few years to once again be a world leader in clean energy technologies,” said Senator Jeff Bingaman.

It will be interesting to see what these politicians say now. Of course, Sen. Grassley and other elected officials can call for inquiries, and set up measures to block this transaction. I would like Sen. Grassley to investigate the proposed transaction rapidly and to prevent it if possible. We the taxpayers should not be forced to put another cent into this company, which had no reason to be given our money in the first place – and giving away the company to the Chinese is the ultimate insult.
