Pat Caddell EVISCERATES the Modern Press as Democrat operatives

with one comment

Drop what you’re doing. You MUST watch this video RIGHT NOW, before you watch any news today, and you must remember it as you are watching any news in the future…

I haven’t posted in so long because I was beginning to feel like it was a useless effort. Oh, I’ve reblogged a few things, but for the most part I haven’t bothered to write anything because in my mind it was a waste of time.

This video will NOT be a waste of your time. I promise. It was posted on You Tube back in September, 2012 just before the election. I so wish more people had taken heed of his alarm, because it’s only gotten worse since then. Everything he says is even more relevant now in 2015, and it will continue to be relevant until the American people put their (collective) foot down and say NO MORE.

BREAKING: President Obama Invokes Executive Privilege to withhold Fast and Furious Documents From Congress. Seriously.

BREAKING: President Obama Invokes Executive Privilege to withhold Fast and Furious Documents From Congress.

Seriously.

HUNDREDS of Mexican citizens and at least one U.S. Border agent dead, and Eric Holder knows the details, and everyone (the public, or at least the ones who have been TOLD about it from their trusty reporters) wants to know why, but the current administration is hiding the documents from the public. Right before an election.

Question: WIll the liberal main stream media FINALLY get the clue and start asking the tough questions instead of fawning all over him like he’s a rock star?

Nixon also invoked Executive Privilege to withhold the audio tapes from evidence during the Watergate investigation, as did Clinton, at least 14 times during his terms in office. Not to be excluded, the Bush administration also invoked this privilege only 6 times, though the treatment of these incidents were numbered out individually in detail for several long paragraphs by the Wikipedia, while the Clinton administration’s use of the privilege was relegated to a mere four or five sentences.

I trust the update today in this wiki section (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Executive_privilege#Obama_administration) about the Obama administration’s invocation will be expanded to include the details of the Fast and Furious operation and the hundreds of lives that were sacrificed because of it.

Can You REALLY Get Paid to Protest on Wall Street? Yes, You Can!

The term astroturf when referring to the recent rise of the Tea Party was coined by (at the time) Senate Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi. It was meant to demean the movement of patriotic, Constitution-loving citizens who were demanding that Congress rein in spending and vote against what amounted to the massive government take-over of the U.S. private health care system.

Of course, Pelosi’s definition didn’t hold water as all across the nation small groups of dads, moms, grandparents, and young adults of all different ethnic backgrounds, religious persuasions, and political sympathies gathered together in unity to put legislators feet to the fire with the Constitution and love for their country and freedom backing them up.

For this, Tea Party supporters were castigated by the liberal media outlets – called all sorts of  names, including names which referred to perverted sexual practices.

But what is fueling the current Occupy Wall Street protests? Those same media outlets might have you believe this is a spontaneous movement, gushing something like “Now THIS is democracy at work!”…

Is it really? Then why do many of these protestors get paid to do it?

Yes, you too can get paid to protest those greedy, mean, rich people who work to make a living… as advertised on Craigslist.

Below is a screen grab of the ad placed by the Working Families Party, a far left political party which is well-known to be heavily funded by big labor union organizations.  Again we have unions trying to use their considerable political muscle – and now they are paying willing young people to help them. For a price.

It’s also basically ACORN 2.0, run by many of ACORN’s former employees.

 

Van Jones leading chant at Occupy Wall Street Protest

with 5 comments

Former Obama Administration Green Czar Van Jones was video taped recently leading a group of “Occupy Wall Street” protestors in a little chant. Not surprising considering other noted communist idols such as Frances Fox-Piven have also shown up to egg the protestors on in their efforts to annoy New Yorkers and damage the environment in the immediate vicinity.

I cannot imagine that the administration of the President of the United States would not have done a background check on anyone being considered for a job at the White House. Van Jones’ open communism has never really been a secret except with the Obama worshiping mainstream media.

They know Obama’s time is short in the White House. That is why they are doing this now. Looking at the timing of the vote to enact a surtax on the rich it’s not hard to put two and two together to know that the White House is in lockstep with the protestors and their leader’s plans to push the government further into socialism.

So, all that said… here he is. Van Jones in all his glory.

Barack Obama, A One Term President – In His Own Words

with one comment

‎”I will be held accountable. I’ve got four years and a year from now, I think people are going to see that we’re starting to make some progress, but there’s still going to be some pain out there … If I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s going to be a one-term proposition.” President Barack Obama, 2009

WELL, THANK YOU, MR. OBVIOUS.

Press Release: Black Leader Again Requests Obama Call for Black Panther Special Prosecutor

leave a comment »

For release July 13, 2010

Washington, D.C. — After seven months of silence, and with controversy growing by the day, the chairman of the Project 21 black leadership network sent President Barack Obama a second certified letter asking for the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate the Justice Department’s questionable handling of its voter intimidation case against members of the New Black Panther Party.

Project 21 Chairman Mychal Massie wrote a letter to President Obama on December 4, 2009 asking for a special prosecutor that continues to remain unanswered. In his second certified letter to President Obama, dated July 8, 2010, Massie wrote: “During the time that I have not been dignified with a reply, the problem has festered to a point where perceptions of racial bias within your Justice Department cannot be ignored.”

“Seeing that President Obama has ignored reasonable requests by me and others for a thoughtful investigation of the alleged flagrant abuses at the Justice Department, one can only deduce that the actions there may have his silent support,” said Massie.

On Election Day 2008, three members of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense were alleged to have intimidated voters outside of a Philadelphia polling place. Career attorneys at the U.S. Department of Justice pursued a case against the men and were on the verge of a verdict against them when Obama Administration political appointees at the Department were said to have “ordered them to reverse course” on the case.

Charges against two of the men were the dropped completely, and the man wielded a nightstick at the polling place on Election Day 2008 was ordered to refrain from do so again until November 15, 2012.

In his original certified letter to President Obama, which was received by the White House on December 14, 2009, Project 21’s Massie pointed out the seriousness of the allegations and the concern Obama and his key allies — including Attorney General Eric Holder — expressed in the past for allegations of unethical behavior and avoidance of civil right prosecutions at the Justice Department.

In his request, which was repeated in the second letter, Massie wrote: “Because of your past concern about maintaining the Justice Department’s impartiality, actions taken in response to past allegations and new revelations of a separate but no less serious incident taking place under the Justice Department’s new leadership, I ask for your assistance in seeking the appointment of a special prosecutor.”

Since then, one of the career attorneys who prosecuted the case — J. Christian Adams — has resigned in protest about the handling of the case. Adams testified to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights that the Obama Justice Department “abetted wrongdoing and abandoned law-abiding citizens” with regard to the New Black Panther Party case.

Adams has further testified that “[t]here is an open hostility to race-neutral enforcement of voting rights laws” within the Obama Justice Department and that career staff are being ordered not to comply with Civil Rights Commission subpoenas for more information about the case.

“It’s very disconcerting that the Obama Justice Department seems to have a double-standard regarding racism,” noted Project 21 fellow Deneen Borelli. “While they are fighting the Arizona immigration law in part because it is claimed that it might erode civil rights, they are reportedly unwilling to do anything about voting rights complaints that don’t fit a politically-correct framework. Justice is supposed to be color-blind, but it sees to have become racially politicized under the first black president and first black attorney general. This erodes the Obama Administration’s credibility.”

Massie added: “The President’s inaction with regard to the New Black Panther Party case allows the perception of racial bias at the Justice Department to fester. It is yet another curious and questionable action regarding race by this White House that will likely impact how history perceives Obama. One thing he could do to help himself if answer Project 21’s certified letter.”

Massie has sent a copy of this second letter to Congressman Frank Wolf, ranking member of the House Commerce-Justice-Science Appropriations Subcommittee; Congressman Lamar Smith, ranking member of the House Committee on the Judiciary; Congressman Darrell Issa, ranking member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and Senator Jeff Sessions, ranking member of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary.
