Breaking: Armed Man Detained Near President Bush’s Home

January 24, 2012 at 9:02 pm (Detained, George Bush, George W. Bush, Home, President Bush, Safety, Secret Service)

The man apparently believes he was contacted by the former President ‘spiritually’.

From KDFW-Fox4:

The Secret Service agents reportedly stopped a man who tried to get past the security gate leading into Bush’s neighborhood. He tried to follow a car that had opened the gate, sources told FOX 4 News.

The sources said the man claimed he was there to pick up a package that Bush told him to come and get. That message was conveyed spiritually, according to the man.

Dallas police are holding the man and apparently still trying to decide what to do with him.

He was carrying a gun in a locked box in his car, but he does have a concealed handgun license.

Officals are concerned about his mental state, the sources said.

WFAA-Dallas adds:

At this time, the Dallas Police Department says it has no reason to hold the man, however the Secret Service is continuing to question the man for more information. They do not believe the man was a threat to the former President.

Must See Video: How Do You Make a Marine Scream Like a Baby?

January 24, 2012 at 7:16 pm (Comedy, Countdown, Funny, Hilarious, Jarhead, Marine, Screaming, Screaming Marine)

You put him on a slingshot ride in Orlando, Florida.

Before the ride starts, he actually says, ‘I’d rather be in Afghanistan’.

His reaction, the scream of sheer terror as he yells ‘That was not a countdown!’, is absolutely hilarious.  (h/t All-American Blogger)

God bless both these guys. They’re awesome. Good to see them back home having a good time. Well, one of them, at least.

Bless them indeed…  But watching the one guy being tortured is just too funny!

VIDEO: Opening Statement Heard in Upstate New York Voter Fraud Case

January 24, 2012 at 5:05 pm (Ballot Fraud, Bob Mirch, Brian Premo, Clement Campana, Democrats, Ed McDonough, Elections, James Gordon, John Brown, Michael LoPorto, New York, Trey Smith, Troy, Voter Fraud)

Opening statements were made by both the prosecution and the defense in a massive upstate New York voter fraud case.  Special prosecutor, Trey Smith, promises to expose the seedy underbelly of Democratic politics in the city of Troy, something other Democrats already charged in the case have referred to as ‘normal political tactics.’

The trial involves Democrat Board of Elections Commissioner Ed McDonough, and former Councilman Michael LoPorto, who combined, face over 100 total charges that include second-degree forgery, second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, and second-degree criminal possession.

Smith has claimed that Democrats ‘went for a power grab to ensure that several of its candidates, namely former Councilman John Brown, LoPorto, and former Council President Clement Campana, won the 2009 Working Families Party primary, which would help them win the general election a month later.’

For his part, defense attorney Brian Premo, isn’t necessarily denying the accusations but rather, trying to place “the blame on Democratic politicians and operatives”.  He even admitted a scheme in which Brown and Campana, both aspiring mayoral candidates, concocted a story to blame the fraud on then Department of Public Works Commissioner Bob Mirch, a Republican.

When the act of fraud was made public, Premo said Brown then held a meeting with members of the Working Families Party and workers from the Board of Elections at LoPorto’s Restaurant on fourth Street. There, he suggested the WFP members blame the fraud on then-Department of Public Works Commissioner Bob Mirch.

In our report last week, James Gordon, Chairman of the Troy Republican Committee said, “This was greed, ignorance, lack of ethics, and laziness.  Bad people doing bad things.”

Candid Admission – Proving Your Identity Only Hurts Democrat Voters

January 24, 2012 at 12:40 pm (Ballot Fraud, CBC, Charlie Rangel, Congressional Black Caucus, Democrats, ID, Identification, President Obama, Sheila Jackson Lee, Voter, Voter Fraud)

It takes tunnel vision for a person to believe that voter ID laws are racist or an act of minority suppression.

It takes a candid admission – albeit, inadvertently – to believe that proving your identity can only harm supporters of President Obama.

In short form – doing things legally is a detriment to the left.

Via The Hill:

The Congressional Black Caucus on Monday night took to the House floor to charge that voter ID laws popping up around the country are aimed at dissuading minority voters from voting, and making it harder for President Obama to win re-election.

Replace the word ‘minority’ with ‘illegal’ and the statement becomes more factual.  But isn’t it astounding, that they are essentially admitting that the elimination of illegal votes would make ‘it harder for President Obama to win re-election’?

It continues…

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) added that supporters of these laws have made the “misrepresentation” that there was fraud in the 2008 election, “maybe because we elected the first African American president.”

Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) also drew a connection to these laws and Obama’s election, and said he’s not sure if the laws are being advanced due to “the color of the President” or because Obama “received record-breaking participation by the very same people that they’re making it difficult to vote.”

Rangel however, being from New York, should have immediately countered Jackson Lee’s comments; for there is no “misrepresentation” of voter fraud rather, it is an accepted political tactic in Rangel’s home state.
Coincidentally, opening arguments have begun in an upstate New York ballot fraud case – a case that should demonstrate the urgent need for voter ID laws.  In that case, Democrats openly admitted that “voter fraud is an accepted way of winning elections, and faking absentee ballots was commonplace” and “what appears as a huge conspiracy to nonpolitical persons is really a normal political tactic.”

That normal political tactic, possible only because of a lack of voter ID laws, has resulted in over 100 total charges for two Democrats, which include second-degree forgery, second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, and second-degree criminal possession.

Voter fraud – a normal political tactic that explicitly benefits the re-election of President Obama and the left.

Your modern day Democrat party.

It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s a Ron Paul Action Figure!

January 24, 2012 at 10:48 am (Action Figure, Barack Obama, PAC, Ron Paul, Super PAC, Superhero)

A Ron Paul super PAC is now selling action figures of the candidate.

The super hero will reportedly cut off aide to his allies in the midst of battle, publish villainous newsletters and deny he knew about them, and will come equipped with a special tin-coated head shield. 

Okay, I made that part up…

The State Column:

Revolution PAC, a pro-Ron Paul super PAC, deserves creativity points for its latest fundraising idea. Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul’s loyal followers will have one more way to support their favorite politician. Revolution PAC announced Monday that it is selling collectible Paul action figures. “This is the only way that Ron Paul can be bought,” Revolution PAC chair Gary Franchi said in a press release.

Revolution PAC will offer both a “Commander-in-Chief” Paul and a “Super Hero” Paul for sale. “Barack Obama certainly doesn’t have a corner on the action figure market,” Mr. Franchi said. “Ron Paul proved he could go head to head with Obama in the Jones Soda bottle ballots during the 2008 campaign. I’m quite confident that he’ll be competitive in the collectible toy demographic as well,” Mr. Franchi added.

Happy Anniversary! 1,000 Days Since the U.S. Senate Passed a Budget

January 24, 2012 at 8:50 am (000 Days, 1%, Anniversary, Budget, Congress, Democrats, GOP, Government, House of Representatives, President Obama, Sandy Adams)

Celebrate responsibly…

How very fitting that this is the day Obama has chosen to present his State of the Union address.  An anniversary symbolizing the incompetence of government.

The Heritage Foundation has provided some fantastic information regarding the happenings during the 1,000 days in which the Senate has failed to pass a budget:

As the 1,000th day nears, here are some facts about America’s budget and why the Senate must take action to be stewards of the people’s money as the Constitution requires:

  • The last time the Senate passed a budget was on April 29, 2009.
  • Since that date, the federal government has spent $9.4 trillion, adding $4.1 trillion in debt.
  • As of January 20, the outstanding public debt stands at $15,240,174,635,409.
  • Interest payments on the debt are now more than $200 billion per year.
  • President Obama proposed a FY2012 budget last year, and the Senate voted it down 97–0. (And that budget was no prize—according to the Congressional Budget Office, that proposal never had an annual deficit of less than $748 billion, would double the national debt in 10 years and would see annual interest payments approach $1 trillion per year.)
  • The Senate rejected House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan’s (R–WI) budget by 57–40 in May 2011, with no Democrats voting for it.
  • In FY2011, Washington spent $3.6 trillion. Compare that to the last time the budget was balanced in 2001, when Washington spent $1.8 trillion ($2.1 trillion when you adjust for inflation).
  • Entitlement spending will more than double by 2050. That includes spending on Medicare, Medicaid and the Obamacare subsidy program, and Social Security. Total spending on federal health care programs will triple.
  • By 2050, the national debt is set to hit 344 percent of Gross Domestic Product.
  • Taxes paid per household have risen dramatically, hitting $18,400 in 2010 (compared with $11,295 in 1965). If the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts expire and more middle-class Americans are required to pay the alternative minimum tax (AMT), taxes will reach unprecedented levels.
  • Federal spending per household is skyrocketing. Since 1965, spending per household has grown by nearly 162 percent, from $11,431 in 1965 to $29,401 in 2010. From 2010 to 2021, it is projected to rise to $35,773, a 22 percent increase.

In an op-ed in the Orlando Sentinel, U.S. Rep. Sandy Adams explains that the lack of a budget was inexcusable during the Democrats control of both houses.  He writes:

Could you imagine not doing a family budget for 1,000 days, or businesses going that long without one?

The previous Democrat-led Congress had ample time to do so. With President Obama in the White House, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and former Speaker Nancy Pelosi had the power to implement any budget they chose. Unfortunately, they punted on their responsibilities, choosing to pass legislation creating a national energy tax and an unpopular health-care law instead.

And  here is a GOP ad highlighting the momentous achievement.  The trailer highlights the fact that January 24, 2012 marks 1,000 days since Senate Democrats passed a budget, and that President Obama’s policies have hurt job growth and made our economy worse.
