Report: Hillary Clinton Lied Under Oath To Congress

Posted by Brian

The Washington Examiner is reporting that Hillary Clinton did not tell the truth (i.e. she LIED) to Congress in her testimony about the Benghazi terrorist attack that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, two Navy SEAL's and a fourth embassy employee.
Asked whether she was aware that those at the embassy had requested extra security, Clinton told Congress, “I didn’t see those requests, they didn’t come to me, I didn’t approve them, I didn’t deny them.”
Now it is learned that not only did Hillary Clinton see those requests, but a Congressional report says that her signature was present on State Department cables to reduce security at Benghazi. So not only did she know of them, but she personally denied the requests.
White House spokes-propagandist Jay Carney, when questioned about Clinton's signature appearing on the document, said that it was "protocol" for "signatures" to appear on government documents the official did not sign.  In other words: "Never mind! Nothing to see here.  Move along", or to quote Hillary Clinton herself in her Benghazi testimony to Congress. "What difference at this point does it make?!"
Well. I guess we shall see Mrs. Clinton. We shall see.

Obama Goes Wobbly On Syrian Chemical Weapons "Red Line"

Posted by Brian


President Obama has said that if Syria were to use chemical weapons, it would be a "game changer", and is a "red line" that "will have consequences".
Britain, France and Israel have all said that they have confirmed through soil samples that Bashar Assad has used chemical weapons of mass destruction in both Aleppo and Damascus.
Jonathan Karl asked White House Minister of disinformation Jay Carney if the White House is taking any action now that Syria has crossed that "red line". Carneys's answer? Not really.
Saying that the White House needs to "assess the reports of chemical weapons use" from three allies, they need to continue to "monitor, investigate and verify any credible allegations", Carney then re-stated that Syria's use of chemical weapons is "unacceptable".
This is just more of the circular fan dancing we repeatedly get from the Obama Administration on virtually everything.
"Oh! They crossed the red line?  Well, move it back a little more.  Now, THIS is the real red line that you can't cross, and I REALLY mean it this time!"
Is it any wonder that N. Korea, Iran, and nearly every other regime hostile to the United States, has little regard or respect for what this President says? He's a clown! Obama thinks that the Hugo Chavez' of the world are laughing with him, while they are laughing AT him. Everyone but Obama himself, the Obama zombies who voted for him, and his liberal sycophant followers here in the media see him as a joke.
Mr. President, the first rule of drawing a line in the sand to your enemies:  You better be prepared to follow through on your tough talk!  They might just call your bluff.

DC Lawmakers Seek to Exempt Themselves From ObamaCare, Siting High Cost

Posted by Brian


Lawmakers in both the House and the Senate, seeing the impending disaster that is Obamacare, are scrambling to exempt themselves and their staffers from the exorbitant cost increase which is scheduled to hit next year.
Politico reports, "Congressional leaders in both parties are engaged in high-level, confidential talks" to exempt themselves and their staffers from the increased costs.  "Confidential"? You mean, meeting behind closed doors to hide what they're doing from the American people?   Say it isn't so!
God forbid that, realizing this monstrosity of a "health care" bill does exactly the opposite of what they advertised, which was to hold down costs and premiums, they actually do the right thing and defund the entire damn thing for everyone, but instead seek to provide a work-around for themselves and the politically well-connected.
Your elected leaders and representatives working "for the people"? Riiiiiiiiight!

Worst Run State in the U.S.? CA Dem Proposes Bill That Will Shutdown Small Restaurants

Posted by Brian

Is this the new face of "authentic" Mexican food restaurants for Californians?
With California tied for the worst unemployment rate in the country (9.6, not counting those who have dropped out of the labor force), Democrat Mark DeSauliner (Concord) has proposed a bill (SB-747) that would require every restaurant to pay for, and conduct "risk assessment" testing on every item on their menu, and provide a "Public Health Impact Report", along with a mitigation plan for any impacts.  The rationale for the bill is to determine if their food "contributes significantly to a significant public health epidemic".
Am I missing something here?  Where are we seeing an "epidemic"of people getting sick and dying from eating out at restaurants? I thought the whole purpose of the our health and safety codes, along with inspections currently in place do that. The "fat epidemic", maybe? We consumers are already deluged with information about calories, fat, trans-fats, salt, and everything else on menus, it is practically overwhelming. The facts to make sensible choices are already there.
There aren't any epidemics! This is another "crisis" created by a politician to steal more money from the people of California.  It has nothing to do with safety, and everything to do with extortion.  Extortion that will literally put every small restaurant in the state out of business, leaving only the cookie-cutter chain restaurants to survive.
In a state with the largest Hispanic population in the country (14.1 Million), how ironic (and sad) will it be to have Taco Bell be representative of "authentic" Mexican food?

CALIFORNIA BILL COULD SHUT DOWN SMALL RESTAURANTS
by WARNER TODD HUSTON  10 Apr 2013

The State of California has one of the worst proposals of any legislature in the country this year with a new bill that would force every restaurant and food service business in the state to commission an expensive "risk assessment" test for every menu item.

Such a test could cost thousands of dollars for every food item sold. This outrageous and cost prohibitive testing would certainly cause all but the biggest chain restaurants to go out of business almost instantly.

New York town removes, confiscates Gadsden Flag from Veteran's group

Posted by Brian

Due to "unidentified complaints", the New Rochelle, NY city council ordered that a local veteran's group Gadsden Flag be removed and confiscated, because the flag is actually a "Tea Party symbol".  Though there have been people at Tea Party rallies that have worn or flown the Gadsden flag, it is not the Tea Party symbol.  But, SO WHAT! What if it was!

Aside from these miscreant complainants being historically wrong, where in the Constitution does it say that we are immune from being offended? The Gadsden symbol dates back to at least 1775, predating the rise of the Tea Party by almost 235 years, showing up on drums, in newspapers, uniform buttons, and banners.

A man calling himself "An American Guesser", whom most historians now agree was Benjamin Franklin wrote that he observed the symbol on a drum belonging to the Marines, wondering why the symbol was chosen.  He said it occurred to him that "the Rattle-Snake is found in no other quarter of the world besides America." Franklin also observed, "She never begins an attack, nor, when once engaged, ever surrenders: She is therefore an emblem of magnanimity and true courage. ... she never wounds 'till she has generously given notice, even to her enemy, and cautioned him against the danger of treading on her. I confess I was wholly at a loss what to make of the rattles, 'till I went back and counted them and found them just thirteen, exactly the number of the Colonies united in America; and I recollected too that this was the only part of the Snake which increased in numbers. ... 'Tis curious and amazing to observe how distinct and independent of each other the rattles of this animal are, and yet how firmly they are united together, so as never to be separated but by breaking them to pieces. One of those rattles singly, is incapable of producing sound, but the ringing of thirteen together, is sufficient to alarm the boldest man living."

The left constantly preaches that we need to "celebrate diversity", which is a total crock! What they really mean is that we need to celebrate "deviancy".

It's not just about "accepting" individuals for who they are.  It's one thing to accept that a person is gay, and to treat them with the same respect and equality as any other human being.  Let bygones be bygones.  I do not agree with your lifestyle, but I won't infringe on your right to live it, or to pursue happiness.  But, under the rules of political correctness and diversity, I need to "celebrate"it.  I need to "accept" whatever behavior someone wants to engage in. I'm homophobic if I find the outlandish behavior at a gay pride parade offensive, or inappropriate in a public setting.  Various degrees of nudity and simulated sexual acts in a public parade are not my view of "fun for the whole family" entertainment.  Yet, in this Sodom and Gomorrah culture we are declining into, I am the one who has a problem!

I accept immigrants, of any nationality or color, who come into the country legally. But, I am a racist if I oppose those who enter illegally.  I am racist for wanting strong borders.  Yes, some who come in are looking legitimately looking for a better life.  I understand that.  But, if the first thing that you do in beginning your new journey is to break the law of the country you are coming to, you start out as a criminal.  In addition, many of those who enter looking for a better life, are NOT the type of people we want in the country.  I am not talking skin color.  I am talking of drug smugglers, gang members, rapists, Islamist jihadists, and others who exploit our lax security for all manner of illegality, and pose a legitimate threat to the security of our nation. Again, I am the intolerant one!

Which kind of intolerant bastard are you?
Anti-abortion?  You misogynist! Why do you want a war on women?  
No illegal immigration? You Racist!
You don't want sharia law?  You're a islamophobe AND a racist! You're probably the most disgusting kind of person there is: one of those evangelical Christians, which everybody knows is the root of all evil that has ever existed in the world!
Don't believe in man-made global warming? You hate children, women, minorities, and are a heretic.  Why, you don't even deserve to live!

If it seems I am overreacting to this one thing happening in a town three thousand miles across the country, I say hogwash. This is but one of a plethora of attacks on the things that tear at the fabric of what made this country the "shining light on the hill", but which the leftists in our midst hope to remove from our history, our culture, and our memories.  The hypocrisy, and intolerance of these scumbags needs to be exposed for all to see.

There is a war being waged for the hearts and souls of the American people which far too many are either disengaged, or have chosen to be silent, hoping it will all just "work itself out". It will work itself out, but for those who refuse to "suit up and show up", how it "works out" may not be what you desired.


New York town confiscates original Marine Corps flag, claiming 'Tea Party' ties 
APRIL 8, 2013 BY: TIMOTHY WHITEMAN

"A wonderful way to show our gratitude for the sacrifices that members of our Armed Forces make to keep us free..."

The City Council of New Rochelle, NY has ordered the Revolutionary War's Gadsden Flag to be removed from its flagpole and confiscated from a patriotic veteran's group, as reported by the Sacramento Bee on April 8, 2013.

The conservative-leaning Thomas More Law Center has been retained by New Rochelle resident and former U.S. Marine Peter Parente, who is also the president of the United Veterans Memorial & Patriotic Association of New Rochelle, New York (UVMPA-NR).

Trickle-Down Subjugation: Maryland Residents Drenched with Tax on Rainfall

Posted by Brian

EPA Mandates Cow Spineless State Reps Into Taxing Rainfall
  
If you drive a car, I'll tax the street 
If you try to sit, I'll tax your seat 
If you get too cold I'll tax the heat 
If you take a walk, I'll tax your feet  

Now my advice for those who die 
Declare the pennies on your eyes 
'Cause I'm the taxman 
Yeah, I'm the taxman  
And you're working for no one but me   
George Harrison - Taxman 

Just when you thought that the government couldn't get any more intrusive into the everyday lives of Americans, comes the news that the Governor of Maryland has signed a bill imposing a tax on the amount of rain that falls on your home.  You read that right.  Maryland's residents are now responsible for the amount of water that nature drops on their property. 

The new tax is the reaction of the state to a mandate by the Environmental Protection Agency's arbitrary 2017 deadline to cleanup the Cheseapeake Bay estuary or face a stiff $14.8B fine.  This is exactly the kind of legislation you see when you have a federal agency, staffed with enviro-Marxists, which has been unconstitutionally delegated dictatorial power to write laws and impose fines on virtually everyone, from state governments, to businesses, to private citizens.  EPA regulations cost 5% of the U.S. gross domestic product, or more than defense and Homeland security combined.

God forbid there is another hurricane along the Eastern seaboard.  With taxes expected to average about $100/yr for normal annual rainfall, what is going to be the tax impact on Maryland's citizens when the state is hit by the inevitable Nor'easter or some other so-called "superstorm".  Maryland citizens could be whacked on all sides - home repairs/rebuilding, cleanup of debris, and oh yeah, a huge tax bill for the extra multiple feet of water which destroyed their property in the first place.

Even George Harrison didn't see rainfall as one of the lengths the government is willing to go to, to confiscate wealth and subjugate its people.

Thomas Jefferson said "All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent."  The people of Maryland should be screaming at the top of their lungs at this outrage!

Psychotropic Drugs: An Anti-gun Statists Wet Dream!

Anti-gun hysteria has reached a fever pitch among lawmakers across the country, at both the state and federal level.  Legislation, which our so-called representatives are writing and passing, with nary any debate, is being proposed and voted on.  As posted on April 9th, the unintended consequences (or are they intended?) of the New York state anti-gun bill, misleadingly called the NYSAFE Act, is resulting in the confiscation of firearms from citizens who have done nothing wrong, save that they are on "anti-anxiety" medication.  An Attorney, Jim Tresmond, confirmed in a New York radio interview that this is indeed happening in New York. (Click here for the link to the interview)

(Connecticut's new gun legislation is expected to be even more prohibitive than New York's)

Now, before you say, "Yeah, we need to get the guns out of the hands of the mentally ill and those with mental issues!" Stick with me.  We're not talking about people who have severe mental instability, schizophrenia, or have shown documented evidence to be a threat to themselves or others. We are talking of people who have merely been prescribed psychotropic drugs used to treat any number of things, including mental disorders.  Sounds like a good thing, right?  Well, under that sweeping definition,  millions of Americans can be labeled as mentally unstable by a tyrannical government.  Under "psychotropic" are the following drugs: Ambien (a sleep aid), Antabuse (to treat alcoholism), Cymbalta (anti-depressant),Elavil (anti-depressant), Prozac, Lunesta (sleep aid), Ritalin (to treat ADHD), Valium (anti-anxiety), Xanax(anti-anxiety), and Welbutrin (smoking cessation aid), just to name a few. (For a more comprehensive list, click here)

The opportunity for the statists in the government to run roughshod over the 2nd Amendment with this is staggering.  I would venture that well over 50% of the population would qualify as mentally unstable by these standards.  Add to those, with both federal and state governments calling for universal gun registration to identify every legally owned gun in the country, the prospect that they would confiscate firearms from you even because a family member in you house currently is prescribed, or had ever been prescribed, drugs for anxiety or depression (mild or otherwise).  It would give a tyrannical government the authority to confiscate 99% of the legal firearms from the people.  Of course, the criminals would still be armed to the teeth, as I don't expect they will be rushing down to their local sheriff's office to register their weapons.

The left is on the march, and our 2nd Amendment rights have never been in more danger of being taken away.  Anyone who has the smallest interest in protecting their 2nd Amendment Rights need to speak up NOW, and get involved at ALL levels of government, as well as anyone within their circle of influence.  You have not been silenced yet, unless you refuse to speak up!

MO Turns Over Confidential Lists Of Concealed Carry Holders To Feds

Posted by Brian

In violation of Missouri state law, the Missouri Highway Patrol turned over the entire list of concealed weapons holders in the state to the federal government.

There are at least two issues here.  One is that someone at the highway patrol believed it was permissible to violate state law (Class A misdemeanor), and turn over the confidential information of individual Missouri citizens.  The second issue, and one which is equally or more concerning, is who in the federal government is interested in learning the identities of all individuals who have concealed carry permits?

We're not talking of people who are suspected of engaging in illegal activity.  We're talking of the government collecting data on an entire group of people for the sole reason that they have applied for and received a legal permit for their own protection.  Does the government now see gun owners as suspected law breakers at some unannounced point in the near future?

Keep in mind that thousands of people in New York were legal gun owners up until a few weeks ago, but are now having their weapons confiscated due to sweeping legislation on the definition of who is a mentally disqualified citizen.

What other information is the federal government collecting on the American people?


Highway patrol gave feds Missouri weapon permits data 
By RUDI KELLER Wednesday, April 10, 2013 at 4:19 pm

JEFFERSON CITY – The Missouri State Highway Patrol has twice turned over the entire list of Missouri concealed weapon permit holders to federal authorities, most recently in January, Sen. Kurt Schaefer said Wednesday.

Questioning in the Senate Appropriations Committee revealed that on two occasions, in November 2011 and again in January, the patrol asked for and received the full list from the state Division of Motor Vehicle and Driver Licensing. Schaefer later met in his office with Col. Ron Replogle, superintendent of the patrol.

No Surprise. MSNBC's Race-Baiter Toure' Founded Anti-White Newspaper at Emory University

Posted by Brian

Seeing the world through a race colored lens, Toure' has used that perspective to become on of his network's top anchors.  Of course, that may not mean much on the ratings-deprived propaganda mill known as MSNBC.
When your entire world-view is distorted by, in Toure's case, white bogeymen around every corner, your credibility is shot.  Toure' is no more relevant in his analysis of any event or topic than the KKK's David Duke would be, if he were to have a media forum to spout his racist rhetoric.
Like fellow race-baiter Al "Notso" Sharpton, if there is any racial component to a story, Toure' is ready to exploit it for a political agenda, even if the story is a hoax. Like Al Sharpton and the Tawana Brawley hoax, Toure' too defended a so-called racist act, even after the facts came out, and the so-called "victim" admitted that she made up and staged the whole event.
In 1992, Emory University freshman Sabrina Collins alleged that vandals had attacked her dorm and written racist words on the walls.  Like Sharpton came to Tawana Brawley's defense, Toure' stepped up for Miss Collins, protesting the attack.  However, six months later Collins, like Brawley, admitted that the whole thing was a hoax. And like Al Sharpton, for Toure' the facts didn't, and don't matter. To this day, Toure still defends Collins' hoax.  He wrote in his paper, The Fire This Time, that “THE POSSIBILITY THAT COLLINS HERSELF PERPETRATED THE CRIME HAS SEEMED TO MINIMIZE THE INCIDENT’S IMPORTANCE. IN ANALYZING THE EVENT’S IMPORTANCE TO EMORY, IT IS NOT AT ALL IMPORTANT IF COLLINS DID IT.”
Based on what I've seen of Toure's so-called analysis and rants on MSNBC, I'd say that little has changed in his worldview over the last 20+ years.

MSNBC’s Touré founded militant anti-white student paper
9:29 PM 04/09/2013
Charles C. Johnson and Ryan Girdusky

MSNBC host Touré founded a student newspaper dedicated to black liberation theology while he was a college student attending Emory University from 1989 to 1992.  ]

Touré’s flagship publication, The Fire This Time, lavished praise on famous anti-Semites, black supremacists, and conspiracy theorists whom Touré helped bring to campus. Before he became an intense-but-sardonic TV personality, Touré also decried “the suffocating white community” and defended a nationally famous fake hate crime.

In an interview with The Daily Caller, Touré described the newspaper as “an important black voice on campus” and “a form of community building.”

The Fire This Time only solicited funds from blacks. “Kujichagulia means self-determination,” he wrote. “Economic kujichagulia is an essential part of any realistic program of African-American liberation. This is why we insist on being completely funded by African-Americans.”

The newspaper’s content – a mix of identity politics and post-modern flapdoodle – mark it as an item of its time. In one article entitled “My School, My School Is On Fire… Why EU [Emory University] Doesn’t Need Any Water,” Touré chronicled racial divisions at Emory University and repeatedly asked, “Why’d you go to a white school?” The author turned that rhetorical question into a rallying cry for black liberation: “At a White School like Emory there is a greater potential for higher consciousness and more activism within the black community than at a college,” Touré declared.

The youthful Touré did not consider whether attending a “white school” might provide educational opportunities, networking advantages, or job placement leads, though these are the reasons most people choose a college.
