Fundraisers Obama Style
You can take cheap politicians out of Chicago -
but you can't make them smart or classy!
In case Moocher-elle and Barry (I really got no class) need a few new
ideas for shaking down their groupies with some stupid fundraiser
tricks -- here are some they might be able to try :
White House Garage Sale They could get rid of all the
historical documents, pictures, and statues. Everything could go -
they could then re-decorate in gothic chicago chic broke style like
they are used to.
White House Bake Sale They could get Sarah Jessica
to bake some more chicken and spicy mustard, spread it on cotton-
wood leaves and have Clooney sell it as an afro-diasiac.
White House Shoe Shine They could set up some
George Washington era chairs on the White House lawn, and have
the zzars shine shoes, if we still have shoes by then.
White House Share-a-thon They could get a local
television to put on a beg-a-thon, get pledges from the groupies
dumb enough to watch and call in, then just use those cards until
they reached the limits, then have another beg-a-thon on another
White House UFC They could have a grudge match
between Axelrod and Holder, a Texas death match, Moocher-elle
and Jarrett could be ring girls, the boy child Carney could be
the referree. Are you ready.....
Thats just a few ideas, I'm sure that the two cheeiest jerks in the
world will come up with some new ones on their own next week --
I can hardly w--a--a--a--i--i--t.

Sandusky was found guilty of 45 of the 48 charges that were levied against him. The jurors deliberated for two days, starting yesterday.
|Sandusky Leaving Court this Morning|
Sandusky faces up to 400 years in prison.
The NY Times confirms:
Jerry Sandusky is a former Assistant Coach for Penn State The high-profile began last year when almost a dozen people came out, revealing that Sandusky has molested them, which then resulted in the firing of Penn State Head Coach Joe Paterno.
Sandusky faces 48 counts against him and up to 400 years in prison. Most legal analysts have predicted that he will be found guilty on most, if not all, charges.
|Sandusky Leaving His House|
Several hours before the verdict was reached, the jury asked for clarification on testimony that a janitor gave. The janitor stated that he heard that a fellow employee had witnessed Sandusky had raped a child. This, however, is hearsay because he did not witness it himself. The jury was certain how to apply this to their deliberation.
Fox 29 confirms:
A NATION AT WAR WITH ITSELF
We have been involved in numerous wars during our long history. The Civil War literally pitted brother against brother. Later, and with varying degrees of fanfare, Lyndon Johnson declared us to be in a "War on Poverty," a "war" that continues to this day; Richard Nixon declared us to be in a "War on Crime," also an ongoing war that later became known as the "War on Drugs;" George W. Bush declared us to be in a "War on Terror;" Barack Obama recently declared us to be in a "War on Women," even as he bumbles on in a seemingly endless shooting war in Afghanistan.
But the war that will ultimately prove most destructive is the war that gets the least recognition. We have brought this one on ourselves by allowing the burgeoning, metastasizing growth of the administrative, regulatory state. In this way we have turned ourselves into A Nation At War With Itself, a war that, by design, will have no end.
Take the War on Poverty. In some mysterious fashion, despite having poured Trillions of dollars into this War over some forty-eight years, we are told that the number of people now living in poverty is at an all-time record. How can this be? For the government, easy:
At its inception, we took great liberties with the definition of "poverty," declaring it to mean a condition wherein one's "income," not material wealth, is below a certain percentage of everyone else's income. Further, income means a paycheck (if one gets a paycheck). It does not include numerous government assistance checks, allowances, debit cards, etc. So today, when billions of people in Kenya and other "developing" nations live in shacks with dirt floors and burn animal dung for cooking, the third world definition of "poverty" is still much what it was in 1964, while our definition includes people with air conditioned single family homes, flat-panel TV's, cell phones, and one or more cars.
Yet the war on poverty grinds on, with all of the "essential" agencies, bureaus, commissions, and departments, state and federal, and the enormous number of well-salaried and pensioned employee cubicle-fillers, with the furniture, computers, telephones, and more than a few fleets of motor vehicles "required" to process the taxpayers' dollars, filtering them down to a fraction of their initial worth before passing them on to our "poverty" population in their debit cards.
One clue to the intended permanency of these wars is that in 1964 President Johnson requested Congress to make the Food Stamp Program permanent, and an obliging congress did so. The Department of Agriculture, with the typical accuracy of a government agency, "estimated that participation in a national FSP would eventually reach 4 million, at a cost of $360 million annually." Today "participation" has reached 47 million, and now costs us about $82 Billion a year.
Whether or not there was a serious hunger problem in 1964 to necessitate such a program, we are now told that "the nation’s most serious nutritional problem” is obesity, which is "especially rampant in low-income neighborhoods." Could there be a connection here? And now, believe it or not, we the taxpayers are paying for professional advertising to induce more people into the Food Stamp Program.
N.Y. Mayor Bloomberg, as annoying as he normally is, requested permission from U.S.D.A. to bar food stamps for purchase of "soda and other sugary drinks." U.S.D.A. said . . . anyone? No! Not surprising, since they had previously denied Minnesota permission to prevent food stamp recipients from buying junk food. U.S.D.A. is persuaded by the argument that fighting obesity requires us to "increase the purchasing power of low-income residents so that they can buy food that is more nutritious." In other words, they would be able to afford the hugely expensive good things like fruits and vegetables instead of having to subsist on the dirt-cheap potato chips and junk food.
So, instead of agreeing to a few sensible restrictions on the fattening-up program, stay tuned for the official establishment and enormous staffing of a federal anti-obesity bureau.
The same scenario applies with the other "wars" mentioned above, although the wars on drugs and terror have the additional effect of very directly diminishing our liberties. We must now carefully weigh every word we put in our emails, lest the authorities are eavesdropping; and no knock SWAT team raids replace ringing someone's doorbell to inquire about a past-due education loan.
According to a June 6, 2012 FEMA report, "Since 2001, federal, state and local governments have built a network of specialized teams capable of interdicting and disrupting a variety of imminent threats. . ." including, inter alia, 5,400 SWAT teams. Since the war on crime was launched more than 25 years before, with billions of taxpayer dollars pouring from federal to state and local coffers for crime fighting, it is fair to assume that there were already quite a few SWAT teams before the building of the next 5,400 began in 2001.
Obama now says the essential next step for economic recovery is for state and local governments to hire lots more "first responders." And the FAA has approved the plan whereby the defense department will give state and local law enforcement tens of thousands of aerial drones, to silently patrol the skies over all 50 states.
While the wars discussed above were meant to be metaphorical "wars," we seem to be arming our administrative and civilian agencies to the teeth in order to perform their various ministrations. Would it occur to anyone that the Department of Education would need a SWAT Team? Would it make any sensible person feel better to be told that the SWAT Team was officially fielded by the Department of Education's Office of Inspector General?
Our "Justice Department" does not have the resources to find out who has been leaking highly classified security information to the New York Times, putting U.S. defense assets at serious risk, but they have all the resources they need to spend years pursuing Roger Clemens for allegedly obstructing Congress on details of his stellar baseball career. And despite the money and manpower poured into the Clemens case, the elite prosecution team did not get an all-star result: the first time they actually managed to get their case to a jury, ordinary citizens quickly acquitted Clemens on all six counts.
Finally, in another wartime skirmish, the Forest Service battles the Border Patrol: In 2011 in Olympia National Forest, a Forest Service officer came upon a Hispanic couple who appeared to be illegally harvesting plants. He soon discovered that they didn't speak English, and since he didn't speak Spanish, he did a terrible thing: he called the Border Patrol for backup and translating.
Strangely enough, the Department of Agriculture, the parent entity of the Forest Service, went after its own employee. After a protracted "hearing" produced a wide-ranging 40-page "ruling," it was determined that the Forest Service officer had violated the Hispanic couple's civil rights. Despite a formal agreement between Forest Service and Border Patrol to back each other up, and the obvious fact that Spanish language skills are much easier to come by in the Border Patrol, this sort of atrocity will no longer be tolerated.
The Border Patrol has not yet decided what to do about the absurd "ruling." But we would seem to be left with only three choices: 1) Throw up our hands and declare open borders; 2) require every employee of every federal agency to become fluent in Spanish; or 3) stay tuned for the official establishment and enormous staffing of a federal language-translation bureau.
Unfortunately one can only touch the surface of this topic. No wonder our congresspersons do not even pretend to read the multi-thousand page bills they churn out.
Make what you will of that.
Update: Fox News is reporting that the jury is seeking clarification on testimony that a janitor gave. The janitor stated that he heard that a fellow employee had witnessed Sandusky had raped a child. This, however, is hearsay because he did not witness it himself.
Got a birthday, anniversary, or wedding coming up?
Let your friends know how important this election is to you-
register with Obama 2012, and ask for a donation in lieu of
a gift. It's a great way to support the President, on your big
day. Plus, it's a gift we can all appreciate, and goes a lot
further than a gravy bowl.
Setting up and sharing your registry page is easy-so get
I guess my first question about this latest barry/michelle
intreaty to let them stay in the white house for four more
incredibly expensive years, is -- do it come with a barf bag?
Alfred E. Neuman was never this tacky. Joan Rives ought
to have a field day with this one. Rickles is probably buying
mops by the gross.
Who could be that totally stupid, tactless, classless, brainless,
senseless, and just downright dumb?
Didn't Putin pound any sense into barry's thick skull?
This sounds like something Michelle and the girls evolved
into over a $200 Dali lama pizza.
Let's see, the classless, brainless, truthless nitwit acting
like a two year old in the White House wants America to
not give gifts to each other on special, life altering occasions.
He thinks instead that it would be nice if the entire country
gave all the gifts to him. Hahahahaha
If anyone ever had a twinkling of an opinion that this
sane, the least bit concerned about our country, our freedom
and our Constitution, this sort of puts a frost in your shorts.
"Give me gifts. I am Obama the Magnificent. I am the
greatest. Give me all your gifts. Stop giving gifts to
each other. I am Obama. I am your king. Bow down to
me. Give me your stuff. Give me all your stuff. Now,
or I'll invoke executive privilege and send my goons
to take them."
What a worthless excuse for a human being, let alone the
leader of the free world. With this sort of campaigning, he
makes Dumb and Dumber look smart and smarter.
I'll retire to bedlam.
By the way barry, please send some goons out in the
boonies where we live on election day. Send them to
rural areas where we cling to our guns and our religion.
In the boldest act of escalation to this point, Syrian defense forces shot down a Turkish warplane that flew into Syrian airspace this morning, prompting Turkish authorities to call an "emergency security meeting," as both pilots of the F-4 Phantom were rescued successfully.
There are conflicting reports over what exactly occurred, but there seems to be one common story line: at some point this morning the Turkish F-4 Phantom was shot down near Syrian airspace; Syria apologized; both countries worked together to retrieve the pilots and Turkish authorities are meeting over the event.
With the crisis in Syria reaching critical mass, and now the nation's defense forces intentionally targeting foreign warplanes (we know this as fact, as Syria has grounded most of their air force after yesterday's defection), the time and place for a serious discussion over military intervention has been reached.
Specifically Article 5 of the Washington Treaty, which states that an "armed attack against one or more of them in Europe, or North America shall be considered an attack against them all." If Turkey feels that it was deliberate and constitutes an act of war, they can invoke Article 5 and NATO would be at war.
Stay tuned to the Middle East... Things could get interesting very quickly.

Don't get me wrong, the Heat are an excellent team. However, the only game they actually won was tonight's when they blew out the Thunder, who were likely incredulous over the rigged nature of the last few games.
I'm sure the NBA wanted a nice story. But all they've gotten is a black eye and thousands of fans realizing that, on the biggest stage, their favorite sport is fixed:
While there is no shortage of interesting races taking place in New York's federal primaries on Tuesday, one in particular has ignited fierce emotions within the Democrat Party in the 8th congressional district, where we have NY City Councilman Charles Barron, a radical black panther and anti-Semite running against Hakeem Jeffries, a decent and respected young New York Assemblyman.
Democratic divisions have quickly grown between the two camps, and their supporters, as Barron masks his campaign in the civil rights movement and Jeffries has been supported overwhelmingly by the local Democrat Jewish community, which has caused even greater tensions as Barron has dismissed this support by saying he talks to local voters about bread and butter issues; not Israel.
And then today's endorsements... Wow, just wow.
Barron was endorsed by KKK leader David Duke for his anti-Israel policy stances and his opposition to the global zionist machine, or something, while Jeffries received the backing of Congressman John Lewis, one of the most respected leaders of the civil rights movement, saying he would be both a strong leader and effective member of Congress.
The contrast between the two candidates couldn't be more apparent, and sadly in this ultra-one party district, there is no chance of a Republican candidate seriously challenging either one in November. So, if you live by, in, or close to the 8th district - please tell your Democrat friends to back Mr. Jeffries in the primary Tuesday. We cannot just sit idly by and watch an extremist bigot get elected to the House of Representatives.
What say you?
The garbage propagated by the Obama Administration is not going unnoticed by some liberals. Some are indeed calling him out.
Over at the Daily Kos, an article slammed him for his incompetency and lack of transparency:
At Reddit, many users have had enough with the President's broken promises. Here are just a few examples (click on images for better quality).
"A wolf in sheep's clothing:"
Even at Democratic Underground some (though certainly not most) actually thought about what the President was doing:
Simply amazing. Who knows, next the Left might start using facts in their arguments!
Over the past eighteen months we have seen numerous cases of defections from embattled governments to rebels all across the Arab world, but the most interesting to date might have just occurred just this morning.
Colonel Hassan Mirei al-Hamadeh, piloting a Russian MiG-21 fighter jet, defected to the Free Syrian Army in the middle of a training mission this morning and flew to neighboring Jordan to seek political asylum, which he was obviously granted. Syrian state media reported that his plane had gone missing during the exercise.
I remember several fighter pilots defecting from Qaddafi's air force in Libya to join the rebels there, but not one of them flew their plan into another country in the middle of a training exercise to seek asylum. That guy has stones... He could have been shot down in mid-air if even one of his fellow co-pilots knew what he was about to to.
This comes as more intense fighting has taken place on the ground in Syria, which has claimed another 18 lives at the least, and humanitarian aid workers were blocked from entering Homs, one of the worst areas targeted by the Assad regime, due to ongoing fighting, even though both sides agreed to a short cease fire.
At least the rebels now have one fighter jet to aid their cause...
What say you?
Maybe, just maybe, perhaps, just perhaps, we will get a
miracle this year.
My favorite miracle would be that Barry Soetoro would
resign, along with Eric Himpton Holder, and the rest of
the Chicago thugs Barry brought with him from the hood.
All the zzars would have to go, za crooks, za con men and
za bitter women that they are.
Presidents have resigned for less, you know, as the obama-ME-
dia are reminding us.
This country has put up with more nonsense, more crimes, more
lies, more Kobe presidential steak, more debt, more pettifogging,
more stealing, more aliases, more Social Security numbers, more
hidden records, more criminals in office, more stonewalling,
more forced ecomonic misery than all the previous real
If Barry Soetoro Davis Obama Barak Hussein was the CEO of a
company, he would have been fired and jailed by now. Err,
well maybe they don't let you off that easy in Kenya.
Barry -- why don't you do us all a favor and resign? That's right -
leave the lightbulbs and toilet paper, don't wreck the place, it is
time for you to go.
Look at it this way, if you leave now, the felonies that you and
Holder are facing might not catch up with you. And, the disgrace
of losing to a successful American capitalist won't be on your
resume, such as it is.
What say -- you and the fam take one last vacation on us? Go
somewhere you haven't been before. Eat high on the hog,
take plenty of Secret Service Agents, take three or four huge
airplanes, spend another ten or twenty million taxpayer dollars
and go have yourself a good time.
Get a lot of pictures, mug for the cameras, act like you are
really enjoying botching up things. Spend as much as you
want, go for the gusto, who cares? Its not your money.
Just leave, leave us alone, leave the office of president just like
you found it:
much bigger than you are,
much deeper than you think,
and much greater than you are able to imagine.
Just leave, please.

The Left loves to roll them out all the time, as I am certain you are aware. Today, however, with President Obama declaring executive privileges on damning documents concerning Fast and Furious, liberals have relied very heavily on one specific fallacy: tu quoque.
Tu quoque, or "you too," is very simple to understand as well. It's pretty much being a hypocrite; it is when someone does something wrong, then says that no one can correct them because they did it too. So, for example, if a former smoker tells someone to quit smoking because it is unhealthy, the other person will say, "You used to smoke, therefore you have no authority and smoking is healthy."
When it comes to Fast and Furious and executive privileges, the Left attempts to defend the indefensible by arguing tu quoque as much as humanly possible. One extremely common fallacy is displayed below, taken from the Huffington Post:
And guess what: liberals sticking by the President for the sole reason that "Bush did it" are the lowest kinds of mental midgets. Kind of like this man:
Television cameras will surround the Supreme Court on Thursday morning, as they did Monday, anticipating something that may, again, not happen.Please bookmark!
The momentous healthcare decision could be announced Thursday. Or not. All we really know is that it is extremely likely to be handed down by the following Thursday, June 28, when the court is expected to end its current term.
The court works in secrecy as it prepares its opinions, and outsiders might be surprised to learn that some of its work is done at the last minute. The justices would have voted almost immediately after three days of oral arguments last March on whether President Obama’s healthcare overhaul is constitutional. Although that vote would normally have determined the outcome of the case, there is a lot of back and forth before the majority opinion and the dissents, if any, are finished.
Last Friday was the deadline for justices to hand in dissents. Then whoever is writing the majority opinion – the betting is on Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. – has the option of responding to any criticism of the ruling in his own opinion.
and when to folder 'em --
Having been involved directly in politics for sixteen years,
here is my take on what went down for Barry Hussein in
the past few years while watching the nitwit he put in charge
of the Justice (and I use the term sarcastically) Department.
First of all, a liar has to have a liar to protect him, so Barry
chose a lying thug like himself, planning all along for the
reasonable contingency that his lies would eventually would
land him in water above 212 farenheit.
Knowing that, he chose a known political fixer, liar extra-
ordinary, but I repeat myself, for just a time as this, when
his lies about his personal involvement in such evil schemes
as Fast and Furious would come to light.
An honest man, by the way, would never, never last in the
So this liar/fixer/attorney/lover and cover for violent terrorist
and shysters like Marc Rich, alas, I repeat myself again; by
name of Eric Himpton Holder is now about to be brought
up on contempt charges, for protecting Barry Barak Hussein
obama-davis-soetoro -- so what does Barry do?
Barry acts like just last night he decided to invoke "executive
privelege," which by definition means -- "When I don't want
anyone to know my part in this crime, I will invoke E.P."
(E.P. is to barry soetoro what E.D. is to Bob Dole.)
But he didn't just make the decision last night. Experience
tells me that barry and eric have smoked many a doobie over
this one, and this has been hanging fire for years now.
They both know this day was coming, so barry said to erric,
"Look, stonewall as long as you can. Keep it going till after
the election. Make sure I am not implicated. Got time for
So like a good d-u-u-u-d-e, Eric Himpton stonewalled, lied,
cheated, pleaded ignorance, which for him is not that difficult,
and held off the Congress of the United States for the last
three years now.
Yesterday, at oh, about 4:20, Eric says to barry, he-e-e-y
d-u-u-u-d-e, you know your name is on a lot of these
documents Issa is after, and your signature. What do y-o-o-u
want me to do-o-o-o, bro?
So now we have "executive privilege," and two of the biggest
scoudrels, liars, muggers and thieves in the universe think they
are about to walk scottishly free.
But wait, there is no honor among thieves, and ergo prompter
hoc --- guess who is about to be sacrificed, crucified, thrown
under the bus -- and by Barry -- the self proclaimed most
transparent president in the history of the world?
Yep --- none other than Eric Himpton Holder ---
sorry-butt excuse for an Attorney General.
Eric Himpton Holder -- go get a real job for an attorney --
but wait -- maybe you'll be dis-barred. Call Don Rickles --
he has a broken mop to fix, you're the fixer they call -- right???
But what is it? Simply this: if the President does not want to listen to a subpoena (which everyone is supported to follow by law), he can declare "executive privileges" and not release them. However, most of the time it makes a President look extremely suspicious, as people normally say: if you have nothing to hide, then why not release them?
The same is happening now. For months Holder has refused to release the documents and now it is climbing up the Administrative ladder, pitting President Obama against transparency and Congress.
Whine: to utter a peevish, high pitched, nasal sound;
to complain or beg in a childish or undignified way;
a complaint uttered in a whining tone.
The tendency to whining and complaining may be taken as
the surest symptom of little souls and inferior intellects.
--Lord Jeffrey Amherst
So the truth finally comes out, it had to, and seems now that
Barry Barack Soetoro Obama Davis is really not the smartest
guy in the room.
But, we always knew he was not the smartest guy in the room,
and certainly not the coolest cat in the room. His incessant
whining reveals him to be the littlest soul in the room, if he
has a soul, and he is really the dumbest guy in the room, when
it comes to intellect.
One of the first things parents have to discipline their children
for is whining. "He hit me. She touched me. Her piece is
bigger than mine. She is in my way. He called me a name.
Why can't I? Everyone is picking on me."
And the whines just keep on coming. Whining is the sure sign
of a child, or an "adult" who is used to getting their own way.
When they don't get their own way, they cry, pout, whine,
blame and complain.
As long as they blame others, they never have to take responsibilty
for their own actions, and they never have to change. Hey -- its
not their fault!
Barry's whining is beginning to sound like the 5th grade bully
who finally got smacked in the nose by a fed up 3rd grader:
It's George Bush's fault. (x 1000)
It's Europe's fault.
Its the soo-na-ME.
Rush doesn't like me.
Fox isn't fair.
Romney is heckling me.
My homework ate the dog. (I wanted a second helping.)
Whites are racist because I am black.
Blacks are racist because I am white.
Romney makes more money than I do.
People like Michelle better than me.
The Supreme Court doesn't like me. (Racists in robes)
Sarah Jessica Parker can't cook chicken for crap.
Putin hates me.
All these guys are riting books about me being a big fat liar.
Me composite books not believed anymore.
Now me goon squad wants to be paid to goon.
(think me will change hope and change to nope and blame)
Whining is not cool. Whining is not smart.
Whining reveals a spoiled brat with a small -
Whining is not becoming for a president.

Thunder players are getting smacked, pushed, and knocked over. And in return a foul is either called on them or their is no call at all. The "fouls" being called against the Heat are almost all trivial; non-shot fouls when the Heat are below the limit. They don't amount to anything.
In the meantime, Kevin Durant accumulates fouls as if he's a magnet next to metal. Half of them do not exist. Jeff Van Gundy's inane comments and laughing while saying, "Nope! No foul!" when Durant gets called for nothing just makes it all the more frustrating.
Of course, this garbage did not start in this series. In the Boston-Miami series, there was no call when Rajon Rondo got forearmed in the face in right in front of an official. There were exclamations by Van Gundy during the Pacers-Heat series that fouls against the Pacers should not even be called at the JV level.
But they are and they continue to be. It is almost impossible for the Thunder to beat 8 players at once.
Hop over to twitter and there are literally thousands of tweets proclaiming the Heat or the refs as cheaters. But who can blame them after the travesty that is being showcased every other night?
|A Common Example- 8 Tweets in 1 Second All Saying the Same Thing: The Game is Fixed|
I would like to point out that this is not, in any way, a swipe against the Heat. They are an excellent basketball team and LeBron James is the best player on the planet. However, a Championship is much less sweet when it's tainted, either by out-and-out fixing or blind referees.
It could very well be true that he is alive and on the cusp of death. Or possibly even nowhere near death and this is another rumor that pops up every so often.
Over one thousand guns are missing. People are dead. Attorney General Eric Holder knew about it, lied, then decided not to cooperate with the investigation. And what are people on the Left saying? Exactly what you would expect: the fast and furious investigation is racist.
Never, ever let facts get in the way of a good talking point. That's the motto of the people below. Of course these are just a few examples of the hundreds if not thousands of comments online.
"Racist Republican witch-hunters:"
Racist as hell:"
The GOP is racist:"
makes Racists feel Superior:"
The meeting between Attorney General Eric Holder and Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa has ended after 20 minutes of discussion. Holder came with an offer of a briefing on Fast and Furious documents, but did not physically turn over any documents. This is unsatisfactory to Issa who has said repeatedly that in order for Holder to avoid a contempt vote Wednesday at 10 AM, he must hand over 1300 Fast and Furious documents to the Committee.Please bookmark!
"The documents they may choose to give in the future, we need before tomorrow," Issa said to reporters. "“Ultimately the documents needed for postponement seem to be in their possession.”
Holder's failure to produce documents at the 5 PM meeting come after he failed to present them by this morning as requested, after he failed to respond to an October 2011 subpoena as requested and after more than a year of requests for transparency surrounding his role in Operation Fast and Furious.
Issa said there is a chance Holder would submit the requested documents tonight but that a contempt vote is still scheduled for Wednesday and has released an official statement.
From Eric Dondero:
The French media, and various news sources from Spain, and the Netherlands are reporting that two female police officers have been shot dead by a Muslim man from North Africa. The suspect is a recently released convict from a French prison.
French media are blaming the deaths on a drunken and drug-induced craze by the murderer, and are only mentioning his Islamic ties in passing.

1. When and why did you decide to write The Whistleblower: How the Clinton White House Stayed in Power to Reemerge in the Obama White House and on the World Stage?
It’s a long story but here is the short version. Over eleven years ago I had spent seven months undercover (off and on) writing Linda’s Tripp’s story, and the events that led to President Bill Clinton’s impeachment only to discover that both sides of the aisle were wrong—the truth lay in the middle. President Bill Clinton was in the White House at the time and Hillary Clinton was running for U.S. Senator in New York. After Linda Tripp’s criminal lawyer Joseph Murtha erroneously accused me of sabotaging her book in the Washington Post in 2000 I first tried to set the record straight on the Clinton era by pitching articles because I believe Americans deserve to know what happens in their White House. Contrary to public opinion at that time, Linda was not a gossipy, evil whistleblower bent on destroying the Clintons—rather she had protected them by towing-the-line and being a ‘team player’ in the earlier investigations. This is critical in understanding how corrupt politicians stay in power and also explains why Linda tape recorded Monica Lewinsky for insurance to protect herself from them. Linda was not vilified and smeared over BJ’s in the Oval office. That’s ridiculous, and I thought Americans deserved to know the truth about Hillary’s role in the White House and during the Clinton-gate investigations. Then the Bush-Gore recount sucked the oxygen out of the news cycle. Hillary won her Senate bid and nobody would touch this story.
Then I wrote The Whistleblower book proposal and for years the ‘establishment’ and the ‘experts’ told me to move on because the Clintons were old news. But as we now know they were wrong. The Clintons are back in power in the Obama White House and on the world stage.
During the 2008 Democratic presidential contest when Hillary was running for president, one publisher sat on the proposal and passed on it days after Hillary conceded. Had she won the nomination, I imagine The Whistleblower would have been published then. I don’t think people realize how politicized the publishing industry has become. There were editors who wouldn’t read the proposal because of the subject matter. It’s chilling. When reporters stop chasing facts, stop speaking truth to power and start writing spin and publicity stunts disguised as news, they cease being reporters. The same goes for civil servants, like Linda was—if they stop serving America’s interests, and decline to expose corruption if they encounter it, they cease being civil servants. It’s a big reason why America is in trouble today and one of the reasons why I wrote The Whistleblowers. Aside from rare exceptions, everything is upside down.
I decided to try again to have The Whistleblower published as I watched history repeat itself in the Obama White House with the same players from the Clinton era, who share the same ideology, and use the same tactics and strategies to stay in power. Thank God I succeeded. History is repeating itself, most notably in Chairman Darrell Issa’s Fast and Furious investigation. If we don’t learn from the history of the Clinton era, expect more corruption and chaos. Expect the Obama White House investigations to end up in the re-written dust bin of history with the Clinton investigations.
2. What is the most surprising way the Clintons have clung to power?
Nothing they do to stay in power surprises me anymore. Once you understand Saul Alinsky and his man-made progressive social justice ideology where the ‘ends justify the means,’ I think you will agree. What is most troubling however, is how the Clintons and Obama have no regard for anyone but themselves. To be able to destroy innocent Americans ---attempt to criminalize them to stay to power requires callousness and a lack of conscience I cannot fathom. They are bullies. In Linda’ case the intimidation began early with the threat of losing her job and escalated to death threats into a safe house to a bogus criminal indictment. As I document in The Whistleblower, once you turn off the cameras you see how even the Clintons “friends” (like Obama’s friends) are disposable when they are no longer useful. Anyone who thinks they are immune are deluding themselves. I hope The Whistleblower provides a warning and a wake-up call for those in government and the media. Now is the time to draw a line in the sand. Tell the truth or become just as corrupt. You cannot serve under corrupt leadership and not become corrupt yourself. For too long people have looked the other way, rarely is anyone held accountable, and the corruption in Washington has metastasized like a cancer.
3. How has the Obama Administration taken the politics of personal destruction to the next level?
Instead of targeting individual Americans the Obama administration is targeting entire segments of Americans. The Clinton’s successfully used the ‘nuts, sluts, opportunists, and vast right-wing conspiracy’ enemy label to agitate and divide and conquer. It’s far more dangerous now. The politics of personal destruction started immediately under President Obama when Janet Napolitano’s Department of Homeland Security demonized over twenty-three million military personnel after a DHS report declared that veterans could be potential domestic terrorists. Next Tea Party patriots were accused of racism when no proof existed. Capitalists and conservatives remain under intense fire. Linda once said to me, “If you believe nothing else, believe this: If the Clintons can do this to me, they can do it to you.” She was right.
Look at the Trayvon Martin shooting, and the media and the Obama administration’s response. Hillary and Obama’s mentor Saul Alinsky advocates playing the race card as a tactic to advance their agenda. As Alinsky wrote in his book Rules for Radicals: “The pressure that gave us our positive power was the negative of racism in a white society. We exploited it for our own purposes.” Americans need to learn the tactics and strategies these politicos use to stay in power to understand what is happening in their country and what they can do about it.
4. Any plans for a sequel?
Possibly. In the meantime, I have released audio accompaniments for The Whistleblower. You can listen to them at my website.
Linda was concerned that the Clintons might try and plant someone near her to keep tabs and keep her silent. She was also concerned the Clintons would try and sabotage anything she did. Initially that sounded a little paranoid and off-the-wall to me – but not so much after spending extensive covert time with her and seeing behind the smoke and mirrors of the Clinton White House spin. I’d love readers’ feedback on whether or not Linda was right to worry about a Clinton plant. I have a poll on my website: marinkapeschmann.com they can participate in.
5. You write that the Obama Administration is largely staffed by Clinton-era veterans. Wouldn't this be necessary due to their experience? How is this different than in past administrations?
It’s not necessarily different but what is different is during the Clinton era a special justice system was created for them that doesn’t apply to the rest of Americans. If the Clintons and former Clinton staffers were held to the same legal standards that all Americans must adhere to and they didn’t use the strategies and tactics I document in The Whistleblower to thwart investigators, it is unlikely that people like Hillary Clinton and Eric Holder (remember Pardongate?) would be permitted to serve in government again. If you or I withheld documents under subpoena, for example, or were “factually incorrect” with federal investigators, we’d be held in contempt or possibly thrown in jail--not serving in high level government positions like the secretary of state or as the attorney general. The question for today is will congress learn from history or let them get away with it again.

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg of New York has remained coy about whether he plans to endorse a presidential candidate this year, even as Mitt Romney and President Obama aggressively court the billionaire media mogul.Please bookmark!
The most that the mayor and his aides have said is that Mr. Bloomberg, who did not endorse in 2008, is carefully weighing his options this time around.
But during casual conversations at charity event a few days ago, Mr. Bloomberg was far chattier — and candid — about the subject, according to three people who overheard him.
Mr. Bloomberg said that he believed Mr. Romney would probably be better at running the country than Mr. Obama, according to two guests.

Here's the clip they ran on MSNBC:
Now here's the whole footage. God, they are desperate:
Verdict to be announced momentarily. From the Washington Post:
The jury in the perjury case of legendary pitcher Roger Clemens completed its deliberations Monday afternoon. The verdict is expected to be delivered shortly in a packed courtroom in the District’s federal court.Please bookmark!
Over seven weeks of testimony in the case against Clemens, jurors heard from more than 40 witnesses, including former major league ballplayers, a housekeeper, the general manager of the New York Yankees and the wife of the star pitcher. The trial, initially anticipated to last four to six weeks, was at times slow going, with two jurors dismissed for sleeping on the job.
Deliberations began Tuesday, but jurors were off on Thursday and Friday.
The baseball legend was on trial for a second time, charged with six counts of perjury, making false statements and obstructing Congress for denying in 2008 that he had ever taken steroids or human growth hormone. A House panel was following up on a 2007 report by former senator George Mitchell that connected dozens of ballplayers, including Clemens, to performance-enhancing drugs.
First off, we seached "Obama blames" into Google. We made certain to actually put it into quotation marks, so that the results had to have the words "Obama blames" in order. In other words, "Obama Blames Polar Bears for Global Warming" might show up, but "Obama: The Blame For Global Warming is Angry Chickens" would not.
The result? 573,000 matches. That's a lot of blame to go around. In comparison, "Bush Blames" receives only 207,000 results, and he was in office twice as long as Mr. Obama. If you search "Obama Blames" without quotation marks, you will find an astounding 10,700,000 results.
For a deeper look at the number, "Obama Blames Republicans" nets 50,000 results. "Obama Blames Bush" gets over twice that, at 106,000 results.
Now for other searches. "Obama whines" produces 14,300 results while "Obama lies" garners 586,000 results. "Obama Cries" nets 51,300 hits and "Obama is a Marxist" gets 768,000 results.
