Kevin Sorbo is one actor not fooled by Obama

WOW! Sorbo lets it be known how he feels on his Facebook page

America has had some great presidents, many mediocre ones and a few bad ones. But we’ve never had one like Barack Obama. He’s the first who thinks the job is beneath him. He’s the first who turns political give-and-take into a crisis by refusing to negotiate with Congress. He’s the first who thinks the way to more power is to inflict pain on ordinary people. The move to barricade the World War II memorial reveals the mentality of a tin-pot dictator. The limited government shutdown did not need to affect the memorial because it is open 24 hours, without gates and often without guards. But to turn public opinion in his favor, Obama’s goons trucked in barricades to keep out World War II vets and other visitors. By one estimate, the barricades and workers cost $100,000. The same punish-the-people attitude led to shutdowns of other parks and historic sites that get no federal funding. “We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting,” a Park Service ranger told The Washington Times. The ranger cited the order to close the parking lot at George Washington’s home in Mount Vernon so visitors couldn’t use it. The cheap trick captured the contrast between a revered president and the current one. I’ve been saying for a while that there is no bottom to Obama. He’s not just ruthless. He’s without scruples and honor. Now the shutdown has ended, it will bring only a temporary respite from the crisis atmosphere in Washington. When it comes to his countrymen, Obama always chooses conflict over cooperation. Meanwhile, Jimmy Carter can rest easy. We have a new worst president.

Police seize investigative reporters files during home raid

Reading over this report at The Daily Caller, something does not smell right 

A veteran Washington D.C. investigative journalist says the Department of Homeland Security confiscated a stack of her confidential files during a raid of her home in August — leading her to fear that a number of her sources inside the federal government have now been exposed.

In an interview with The Daily Caller, journalist Audrey Hudson revealed that the Department of Homeland Security and Maryland State Police were involved in a predawn raid of her Shady Side, Md. home on Aug. 6. Hudson is a former Washington Times reporter and current freelance reporter.

A search warrant obtained by The DC indicates that the August raid allowed law enforcement to search for firearms inside her home.

A search warrant for guns would not seem to cover confidential files, maybe someone with more experience or knowledge can correct me here, but, again, something seems to stink

The document notes that her husband, Paul Flanagan, was found guilty in 1986 to resisting arrest in Prince George’s County. The warrant called for police to search the residence they share and seize all weapons and ammunition because he is prohibited under the law from possessing firearms.

But without Hudson’s knowledge, the agents also confiscated a batch of documents that contained information about sources inside the Department of Homeland Security and the Transportation Security Administration, she said.

Outraged over the seizure, Hudson is now speaking out. She said no subpoena for the notes was presented during the raid and argues the confiscation was outside of the search warrant’s parameter.

“They took my notes without my knowledge and without legal authority to do so,” Hudson said this week. “The search warrant they presented said nothing about walking out of here with a single sheet of paper.”

To me, the warrant seems like an excuse to enter the home and look for something else? Maybe Hudson was stepping on the wring toes?

At about 4:30 a.m. on Aug. 6, Hudson said officers dressed in full body armor presented a search warrant to enter the home she shares on the bay with her husband. She estimates that at least seven officers took part in the raid.

After the search began, Hudson said she was asked by an investigator with the Coast Guard Investigative Service if she was the same Audrey Hudson who had written a series of critical stories about air marshals for The Washington Times over the last decade. The Coast Guard operates under the Department of Homeland Security.

There is more here to the story, and it will hopefully come out. RS McCain knows Hudson and adds some background

As soon as I saw the headline, I called Audrey, whom I worked with for years at The Washington Times. Audrey said she was “terrified” when she learned that police who raided her home in August — believe it or not, they had a search warrant for a potato launcher her husband had bought online — had taken notes containing information about sources for some of her reporting on TSA scandals.

McCain also provides some links to others covering this

 Now a Memeorandum thread, with more commentary byBryan Preston at PJ Tatler and Rick Moran at the American Thinker

Like I said, there is more to this story, we shall see what develops

 

Senate Amnesty Bill is Unconstitutional?

William Teach asks the question that should be asked of every bill, does it meet constitutional guidelines? Texas Congressman Steve Stockman says it does not

(Washington Times) Rep. Steve Stockman, a Texas Republican, said Friday that the Senate immigration bill is a revenue measure, which makes it unconstitutional because all revenue bills must start in the House.

“Not only is the Senate amnesty bill an abuse of taxpayers and immigrants, it’s utterly unconstitutional,” Mr. Stockman said. “The Senate cannot invent its own amnesty taxes.”

He called on House Speaker John A. Boehner to officially reject the Senate bill as unconstitutional using what’s known in Congress as the “blue slip” process, which is when the House informs the Senate that one of its bills contains taxes or spending and therefore must come from the House.

Blue slip procedures are considered privileged motions and can be brought quickly to the chamber floor for debate and a final vote.

I’d mention that Article 1, Section 7, Clause 1, but Democrats and some Republicans have amnesty on their minds and won’t be dissuaded by the ultimate legal document of our Republic.

Sadly, the Constitution matters little to our “leaders”. People ask what is wrong with America? We ignore our Constitution, that is what is wrong with our nation.

 

Emily Miller refutes the Left’s “high-capacity magazine” propaganda

Emily Miller, columnist, shooter, and a fine spokeswoman for the right of self-defense

Deception is the key component in the latest push for more gun control laws. During her soap opera press conference Wednesday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein used a liberal clergyman to give her the moral high ground in her campaign to infringe on the Second Amendment.

The Very Rev. Gary Hall, dean of the Washington National Cathedral, donned his clerical collar for the all-Democrat event to say he can “no longer justify a society” that “permits the sale of high-capacity magazines designed for the purpose of simply killing as many people as quickly as possible.”

The anti-gun crowd labels any firearm magazine capable of holding more than 10-rounds “high-capacity.” It’s a scare tactic.

The Left has to lie and use the fear campaign, hoping enough Americans are ignorant enough about guns to fall for it, Emily Miller is not going to let that happen

Many firearms come from the factory with devices that feed between 15 to 30 rounds — some hold more, some less depending on their configuration and purpose. Ten is a number chosen out of thin air for reasons of political theater. The gun grabbers use it to imply the higher-capacity magazines enable murderers to kill more people, but it doesn’t actually work out that way.

In a 2004 study for the Department of Justice linked on Mrs. Feinstein’s own website, Christopher S. Koper, a professor of criminology, reported that “assailants fire less than four shots on average, a number well within the 10-round magazine limit” of the “assault weapons” ban.

“Studies prove that the arbitrary magazine capacity restriction that was in place for a decade did not reduce crime,” Lawrence Keane, the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s senior vice president and general counsel, told The Washington Times. “In searching for effective means to reduce violence, we should not repeat failed policies, especially when they infringe on the constitutional rights of the law-abiding.”

Violent crime has decreased 17 percent since the assault weapons ban expired.

That last number might be the most important of all. the Left, and the media are pretending that violent crime is running high, and increasing. that is not true. Violent crime has been falling, and so have “gun crimes” for 20 years now. Great piece by Miller, who is writing a four-part series at the Washington Times dispelling gun myths, You can read part one, and I strongly suggest you do, here And pass these around, especially to friends who might not be so familiar with guns.

Why are we arming our enemies?

Stories like this make my head want to explode

For Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood-dominated government, more battle tanks and jet fighters are on their way from the United States.

Cairo’s military link to Washington has remained intact, meaning the U.S. will continue to modernize the biggest military in Africa — even as President Mohammed Morsi has decreed near-absolute power for himself and his supporters and opponents battle outside his palace.

Analysts say Egypt’s military buildup presents risks for Washington — and Israel — with the growing influence of the Brotherhood, whose overriding goal is to establish Shariah, or Islamic, law worldwide.

A Pentagon statement to The Washington Times on Thursday said: “We are always reviewing our foreign assistance to make sure foreign assistance advances U.S. objectives and is being used for the right purposes.”

Good grief! Morsi is grabbing dictatorial power for himself, Sharia Law is looming in Egypt, and the threat Egypt poses to Israel is growing. Yet, we are arming those that would seek Israel’s destruction, and ultimately ours too? Frank Gaffney shares my concern

“My principal concern with the Obama administration’s approach to Egypt is they seem oblivious to the fact it is now in the hands of a regime that is deeply hostile to the United States and certainly poses an immediate threat, I believe, to our friends in Israel,” said Mr. Gaffney, who runs the Center for Security Policy. “Under those circumstances, it is alarming that they are continuing to arm Egypt in a way that can only exacerbate the threat.”

Mr. Morsia Brotherhood leader before his election, relies on the global fraternity as a power base.

“There are two things that are troubling,” Mr. Gaffney said. “One is the sheer quantity of the weapons that these enemies of the United States have inherited, let alone those they will be getting if we continue to make arms sales with them. The second is the quality of these weapons.”

Gaffney is right. This will lead to no good, stupidity on this scale always does.

House Democrats refuse to stand their ground, postpone war on self-defense rights

Yesterday I wrote about an effort by House Democrats to overturn “stand your ground” laws that allow people to defend themselves. Today, the Democrats have decided not to pursue this vile end, for now anyway

(Washington Times) — Democrats backed off of their effort Tuesday to offer a “Trayvon amendment” to pressure states to drop their stand-your-ground laws after learning it was likely to be ruled out of order under the evening’s rules for debate on the House floor.

Rep. Keith Ellison, Minnesota Democrat, said he will still try to force a debate at a more “appropriate” time in the future, saying action is demanded by the case of Trayvon Martin, the Florida teenager who police said was shot dead in a street encounter with a neighborhood watch volunteer.

The Ellison amendment would have docked federal criminal justice grants to states that have stand-your-ground laws, which allow residents to use deadly force to respond to an attack without first having to retreat.

As I said, they will keep trying, they despise Individualism, and self-defense is a hallmark of individual liberty.

Is this still America?

Milton Wolf, one of the true thinkers in our nation, writes at the Washington Times about our slowly vanishing liberty!

Public schools in San Antonio have installed video cameras, not to monitor for foul play or intruders, but to spy on kids’ eating habits. Federal food police in North Carolina have begun confiscating preschoolers’ homemade lunches because they didn’t meet U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines. Aghast parents have noted that one 4-year-old’s confiscated lunch of a turkey and cheese sandwich, banana, potato chips and apple juice sounds more nutritious than the state-provided chicken nuggets. But that entirely misses the point. In America, parents are free to give their kids pizza and pudding with Twinkies and Twizzlers, and the government has no right to intrude.

Under the sweeping powers of Obamacare, the state has forced Catholic institutions to choose between their God and their government by demanding that they violate their own beliefs and provide birth control to their employees. Their insulting rationalization? Most Catholic women are bad Catholics and don’t follow the teachings of the church anyway. What’s more, the government has deified itself to determine which organizations are Catholic enough to be exempt. What’s next, mandated pork-chop night at the synagogues? Bacon should be a right.

Brace yourself; I’m just getting warmed up.

Armed federal agents of the Department of Education conducted a pre-dawn SWAT-style raid on the home of a Stockton, Calif., man. Read that again: The Department of Education has taken up arms against the citizenry. Meanwhile, federal Transportation Security Administration officials routinely grope our 6-year-olds and conveniently arrange that attractive women are subjected to their full-body porn cameras. Not even George Orwell’s 1984 dystopian police state went that far.

So the same federal government that waved the white flag in southern Arizona by posting signs warning American citizens to avoid American soil – effectively surrendering an 80-mile swath of our border to Mexican drug cartels – at least has the wherewithal to secure your child’s private parts.

But the heavy-handed authoritarians aren’t finished harassing your kids yet. Police officers in Midway, Ga., closed down three girls’ front-yard lemonade stand. Why? “We were not aware of how the lemonade was made, who made the lemonade, of what the lemonade was made with, so we acted accordingly by city ordinance.” Well, at least the enterprise-crushing control freaks can’t be accused of age discrimination.

Fortunately, the feds are concentrating on the most ominous threats against Americans: fresh dairy milk and the ruthless Amish farmers who push their addictive contraband. “I can’t believe in 2012 the federal government is raiding Amish farmers at gunpoint, all over a basic human right to eat natural food,” said one milk addict. Believe it.

This is a GREAT piece, please go read it all, and then get mad about it. Then VOTE for candidates that will turn this madness around!

Diversity? Not under Eric Holder

The Lonely Conservative lays bare just how committed to “diversity” Team Obama really is. As I have noted many times, the Left talks about diversity, but loathes any diversity of thought.And the media? It is all hush hush with them

Well, now that Obama’s Department of Justice, under Eric Holder, is hiring nobody but radical leftists, where is the media outrage over a lack of conservatives being hired to career positions?

Quin Hillyer has the details:

Despite deliberately weeding out hard leftists for some positions, the Bush Civil Rights Division hired as many as two dozen known liberals for career positions. No such reciprocity has come from the Obama DoJ. When I was at The Washington Times, we broke the story (in this editorial) that a whole slate of 16 new hires or promotions consisted of nothing but liberal activists. Again, if these are “career” slots in which political considerations are not supposed to prevail, it stands to reason that at least a reasonable percentage of the hires would lean right. But not here.

That Washington Times report was the tip of the iceberg. Now Pajamas Media has analyzed the hiring in five – count them, five – different sections of DoJ. So far, those five sections in the Civil Rights Division have hired 70 lawyers. According to Pajamas, every single one – every single one, every single one,every single one – has boasted a resume full of ideologically leftist connections.

These people were members of groups like “Queer Resistance Front,” “Intersex Society of North America,” and of course People for the American Way.  Their published essays focused on issues such as “Genital Normalizing Surgery on Intersexed Infants” and on arguing that providing material support for terrorism isn’t a war crime.  They, or those promoted, have histories of extracurricular activities that include getting arrested at a World Bank protest, going on a hunger strike while chaining oneself to an oak tree and doing advocacy work for “the rights of incarcerated native Hawaiians to dance the hula and perform Hawaiian chants and rituals in privately owned prisons in Arizona.” A large number of them have donated significant campaign funds to Barack Obama, and some to other liberal candidates. 

Shocking? No, what else would you expect from Mr. Fundamentally Change America? What else would you expect from a radical like Eric Holder? This is who these people are! They do not believe America is exceptional, they do not respect the foundations of this nation. The sad fact is that you cannot find anything but radicals surrounding this president. Again, what else could you expect? Holder is doing what Obama desires, putting as many radical Leftists in place as possible.

Weiner Jumps the Shark: Can’t Say “With Certitude” if Photo is Him | Verum Serum

Yep, pretty clear now that he did it. What a perv John lays out the damning evidence

Michelle notes that Weiner is not shy about making jokes to female reporters abo0ut this

Washington Times reporter Emily Miller was part of a group of journalists who tried to question Weiner on Capitol Hill.

She writes on Twitter:

I asked Anthony Weiner if there are photos of him half-dressed out there. He said “if you’ll forgive me, I was a little stiff yesterday…”

Anthony Weiner made about six penis jokes while talking to reporters, standing outside the House floor. He has NO RESPECT for the office.

He said “is there a Weiner joke that hasn’t been made in this case?” I said to him, “YOU are making them all!” I need a shower.”

Say what??

Maybe I am too tired or something. I swear I saw this headline at Doug Powers blog, but I know it cannot possibly true. No way the Navy would honor a cretin who called marines Cold-blooded killers without a shred of evidence!

Navy to Name Warship After John Murtha

If you live long enough, you get to see everything:

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Navy says it is forging ahead with its decision to name a warship for the late Rep. John Murtha, despite protests the decorated Vietnam War veteran was disloyal in his 2006 accusation that Marines had murdered Iraqi civilians.

Three Facebook sites opposing the Navy’s April 2010 decision bristle with thousands of angry postings. The Navy website with the announcement drew critical comments. The Washington Times voiced its outrage in an editorial entitled “Sink the Murtha.”

But the Navy says it is standing firm.

First there was ABSCAM and the dubious “King of Pork” distinction, but the man lost what was left of his credibility with this 2006 exchange with Tingles (in his pre-Tingle days) about the Haditha Marines who were on trial at the time:

CHRIS MATTHEWS, HOST: Let me ask you Mr. Murtha to give us some details about that. Draw us a picture of what happened at Haditha.

REP. JOHN “JACK” MURTHA: Well, I’ll tell you exactly what happened. One Marine was killed and the Marines just said we’re going to take care – we don’t know who the enemy is, the pressure was too much on them, so they went into houses and they actually killed civilians. And, and –

MATTHEWS:—was this My Lai? Was this a case of – when you say cold blood Congressman, a lot of people think you’re basically saying you got some civilians sitting in a room around a field and they’re executed.

MURTHA: That’s exactly it.

The Haditha Marines were exonerated and Murtha never apologized. Sure, let’s name a ship after him.

I am sick to my stomach, absolutely disgusted by this. A Navy ship will be named for a damned traitor, a back-stabbing pile of trash!
