Obama: Literally stuck on stupid

March 27, 2012

Danish Broadcasting Corp. host Thomas Buch-Andersen does the job America’s left-leaning media refuse to do. This embarrassing video indictment clearly exposes Obama’s flamboyant superficiality and hypocritical insincerity. Words are only words to him. He’s obviously a fool but the US voters who elected him are the biggest fools of all.

Watch as he habitually uses the boxing metaphor “punches above their weight” to consecutively describe the leaders of Denmark, Norway, the Netherlands, Ireland and the Philippines.

Then he repeatedly uses the exact terminology, as he declares that America has “no stronger ally” than The Netherlands, Australia, Poland, Great Britain, Germany, Korea, Israel, France, Italy and Japan.  Denmark?  Not so much.

You’ve got to see this to believe it.

Inconvenient truths about Obama’s “son”

March 27, 2012

The death of any teenager is a tragedy. A life cut short causes us all anguish. The shooting death of unarmed, black Florida teen Trayvon Martin fits that description to a tee. The fact that this incident has become riddled with racial and political overtones, even causing the President of the United States to jump into the fray and declare, “If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon.” raises the profile to even higher proportions. 

Protest marches from coast to coast — including here in Phoenix — feature professional athletes, celebrities and the now-standard self-appointed black “leaders” Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. Activists from the ACLU and Urban League are capitalizing on the momentum.

An interjection of sanity comes as former NAACP leader Rev. C.L. Bryant accuses Jackson and Sharpton of “exploiting” the Trayvon Martin tragedy to “racially divide this country.” Bryant, quoted in the Daily Caller, says, “His family should be outraged at the fact that they’re using this child as the bait to inflame racial passions.”  The pastor called Jackson and Sharpton “race hustlers” and said they are “acting as though they are buzzards circling the carcass of this young boy.”

But it turns out even the family is cashing in on the bounty, with Trayvon’s mother Sybrina Fulton filing documents to trademark her son’s name. In case you find that difficult to believe, The Smoking Gun website has six pages of applications.

George Zimmerman, 28, a neighborhood watch captain, shot Martin, a 17-year-old youth last month. Zimmerman, also a minority with a mother who is Hispanic, was bruised and bleeding from head and face wounds following an altercation with Martin. He says he shot Martin in self-defense. Though he has not been charged with a crime, Zimmerman has gone into hiding, as the New Black Panther Party vigilantes have offered a $10,000 reward for his “capture.”

The Obama Justice Department and the FBI have opened an investigation into the death and a state grand jury is set to convene April 10.  And in the most glaring example of the racial overtones undergirding the situation, the Sanford Police Department has replaced the white chief, who they say has “temporarily stepped down” with a black appointee.

The Martin case captures the essence of Tom Wolfe’s 1987 classic The Bonfire of the Vanities.  In the novel, a hot-bed of racial tensions erupt as a young black victim sets a city seething. The youth is given sainthood status and the unintentional perpetrator becomes the hunted prey. It’s probably still in the library and chances are you haven’t ventured into one lately. Take this opportunity and pick up the book.  It’s all there — 25 years ago mirrors today.

In that accounting,  the youth became an honor student in death. In the Martin case, the inadvertent victim has had his third, and still current, school suspension for drug possession mysteriously erased and a president with two daughters wax eloquent about his “son.”

Public schools, unionist teachers, victimize students

March 26, 2012

The Louisiana News Star reports that a teacher was present in the classroom while two third graders engaged in oral sex. Try wrapping your thoughts around that. The teacher has been dismissed because the principal felt that she was “not monitoring the classroom adequately.”

Another teacher in the district is under investigation for drug usage while on the job.

The Superintendent is on record desiring to “change the culture” of the district. “We are working on creating a culture where children can feel safe, loved and protected, and that’s quite a challenge,” she said.

Monitored and loved? How about instructed? Isn’t it the responsibility of educators to impart knowledge to students in preparation to be productive citizens who are able to compete in the workforce? Babysitters monitor and parents provide love.

Although they have an average student-to-teacher ratio of 16.6, and are spending $10,000 a year per child, academic scores are pathetic, ranked with a grade of “D” by the local school directory. By any standard this school is failing the children who attend.

The directory states that “the overall school rating shows that Tallulah Elementary School performed on average worse than many other schools across the state on iLEAP and LEAP state exams in the following subjects: English Language Arts, Math, Science and  Social Studies.”

An interesting accompanying statistic would be the percentage of teachers who are members of the NEA — National Education Association or the left-wing union known as the Louisiana Federation of Teachers.

Santorum defends cursing: normal for “real Republican”

March 26, 2012

Earlier today during an appearance on Fox News, Rick Santorum defended cursing at a New York Times reporter as normal for a “real Republican.”

“If you haven’t cursed out a New York Times reporter during the course of a campaign, you’re not really a real Republican, is the way I look at it,” he boasted on “Fox & Friends.”

The reporter asked Santorum about comments he made yesterday in Wisconsin when he said GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney was the “worst Republican in the country to put up against Barack Obama.”

“You said Mitt Romney is the worst Republican in the country,” the reporter said.  “Is that true?”

“Stop lying,” Santorum said while angrily pointing his finger at him, claiming that he was only talking about Romney’s health care positions. “Quit distorting my words … if I see it, it’s bullsh*t.”

Then around 1:00 am this morning, Santorum’s campaign used the confrontation in an email fundraising solicitation to win votes among Republican primary voters scornful of the liberal newspaper. The email led with: “I’m Ready to Take On the New York Times.” He asked for $30 contributions — approximately the same price of a subscription to the newspaper.

This was Santorum’s own Etch-A-Sketchy view of Mitt Romney in the 2008 election cycle, as he compared him to Ronald Reagan.

Louisiana primary totals: Do or die for Newt? UPDATE

March 24, 2012

UPDATE:  Santorum sweeps with 49%. Romney 27%, Gingrich 16%, Paul 6%

With 46 delegates up for grabs in Louisiana — 20 of which will be awarded proportionally based on the results of today’s primary, this result will likely impact Newt Gingrich more than the three other competitors for the Republican nomination. The state’s GOP party rules require that a candidates capture at least 25 percent of the popular vote to qualify for at-large delegates. The remaining delegates will be allotted by means of a caucus and state convention next month.

Newt Gingrich has spent a week in the state, well aware that his political fortunes hang in the balance. Talk has grown stronger for him to drop out of the presidential race as his delegate numbers continue to flag.

Louisiana has a significant Catholic population, which doesn’t bode well for LDS Romney. Gingrich is a Catholic convert, but chances are that the momentum will be with Santorum, especially since he advocated voting for Obama if he doesn’t get the GOP nomination.

Interest among Louisiana voters is said to be high.

Obama on ObamaCare: Remember when?

March 24, 2012

 If things were that easy, I could mandate everybody to buy a house and that would solve the problem of homelessness.”

That was presidential candidate Barack Obama, criticizing then-opponent Hillary Clinton’s health insurance mandates — dismissing the unconstitutional concept before he ultimately imposed it on the American people.

Later in 2010, Congressional Democrats led by Nancy Pelosi, who famously urged passage of the nearly 2000 page bill with these words: “But we have to pass the [health care] bill so that you can find out what is in it,” pushed the economically unsustainable, socialist monstrosity on America’s citizens

Dems go-to guy faces RICO charges

March 24, 2012

Petition signature fraud alive and well

The Sonoran News covers the forged signatures — copied verbatim as they appear in the telephone directory — and other abnormalities and inconsistencies in petition signatures collected by convicted felons on behalf of Andrew Chavez, owner and CEO of AZ Petition Partners, LLC and Black Top Strategies, LLC.

Chavez is the Democrat’s go-to guy for petition signature gathering. Hired by Citizens for a Better Arizona, he was engaged in the collection of signatures in the recall of former AZ Senate President Russell Pearce.

As criticism is hurled and censure is fine-tuned at the Arizona Republic, targeting any Republican who dares to breathe, these egregious activities go virtually unmentioned.

In Kentucky, Kenton County Attorney Garry Edmondson has filed a civil RICO (Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organization) action against Chavez and his company in federal court. He says there is also an ongoing criminal investigation aimed at prosecuting those who may have committed second-degree forgery or were complicit in forging petition signatures, Class D felonies in Kentucky, which, upon conviction, can carry a prison term of up to five years.

Yet silence is the order of the day at the bastion of  journalistic integrity — Arizona’s largest disseminator of agenda-driven news.

Another fine report by Linda Bentley.

LAPD: No license, no problema

March 23, 2012

More pandering to illegals, as inmates run the asylum

Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck has issued an edict to his officers instructing them to ignore the California state law requiring police to impound the vehicles of unlicensed drivers for 30 days. The majority of unlicensed motorists in Los Angeles are illegal aliens with low-income jobs. Beck says the state’s impound law is unfair because it limits their ability to get to their jobs and imposes a steep fine to get their car back. So as long as drivers can produce some form of I.D., proof of insurance and vehicle registration, they’ll be allowed to keep their car.

According to Beck, “It’s about fairness. It’s about equal application of the law.”

Opponents of Beck’s decision are irate, pointing to studies showing unlicensed drivers are among the most dangerous on the road. This 2011 AAA study titled “Unlicensed to Kill,” finds they are five times more likely to be involved in fatal crashes, DUI’s, and more likely to flee the scene of a vehicular crime.

Beck’s decision has angered Don Rosenberg, a resident of Los Angeles County, who lost his 25-year-old law student son, Drew, in a 2010 accident caused by an unlicensed driver in San Francisco — another California city with lax impound policies. The driver, who tried fleeing the scene, after repeatedly running over the victim, had previously been pulled over but was allowed to retrieve his car after a short time, months before killing Drew.

“It doesn’t matter to me who killed my son — what their nationality was. It was the fact that if  the law were followed, he’d be alive today,” the bereaved father said. “It’s more important that people who are in the country illegally get to drive than it is that people who are here get to live.”

Los Angeles District Attorney Steve Cooley wrote Chief Beck, saying his policy would be “invalid” in light of state law, which states a vehicle “shall be impounded.”

The liberal hierarchy of the Catholic Church has gotten involved in this issue. Cardinal Roger Mahony, former Archbishop of Los Angeles says, “A low-income person doesn’t have the ability to pay the fees after 30 days to get their car back.” Mahoney, a longtime pro-illegal activist said, “Basically, we’re just creating more punitive problems for them.” Here he ignorantly compares what he calls “Arizona’s dreadful immigrant law” to the systematic death camps of German Nazis and the forced labor gulags of Russian Communists.

Both Chief Beck and Cardinal Mahony should be ashamed.  No doubt they’re not.
