    Please enjoy the following rants and obeservations from Facebook:If you care more about getting free nine-buck-a-month birth control than you do about fewer jobs, more unemployed, and double-priced gas over four years ago, you might be an Obama voter (and bad at math.)Russian reset worked! Muslim outreach worked! The One healed the world! Peace everywhere! Just look at our booming economy! Oceans, ice caps, enemies, humanity, they all swoon to his Hope! September 11 brought us tightly together because the moment of crisis commands human empathy and response. Liberals and conservatives know how to carry a wounded sister. The years...

    Apparently she's a bit like Gollum from The Lord of the Rings, and she must have the precious. Kim Rothstein, the wife of convicted Ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein, has been charged by federal prosecutors in Fort Lauderdale, FL with "conspiring to hide more than $1 million in jewelry from federal authorities," and "among the items was a 12.08-carat fancy intense yellow diamond ring" as reported by Jon Burstein for the Sun Sentinel. Scott Rothstein ran a $1.2 billion Ponzi scheme involving his law firm as a front to sell phony legal settlements to investors, and he alleged pervasive public corruption...

    PHOENIX, AZ --( The lamestream media told you: NBC News is reporting that American politics has reached a milestone. Spending on the 2012 presidential campaign for broadcast radio and TV has surpassed a half billion dollars, and that was before Labor Day, according to Brian Williams. That is greater than the entire cost of the campaign in 2008. The implication is that money is ruling politics and that is not a good thing. The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that: Missing from NBC’s report is who GETS the money. NBC does, along with their other media colleagues. The broadcast media and...

    President Obama is calling on lawmakers to extend the middle-class tax cuts that are set to expire in 2012 so that 98 percent of Americans and 97 percent of small businesses don’t pay higher taxes next year. Nearly everyone in Washington agrees that this is the right thing to do, and the Senate has already passed the extension. Republicans in Congress, however, are holding middle-class tax cuts hostage, refusing to extend them unless tax cuts to the wealthiest 2 percent of Americans are also extended.

    During the past 4 years Obama has done nothing but enhance his own position, and that of his crony's. As a president he's a train wreck. His main activity is buying votes with our money. Even those on the dole must realize that if the economy goes bust those checks will stop. His lies and broken promises could fill a telephone book. I can't list even a fraction of the underhanded crap he fostered. Only after he's deposed will the whole truth be known,resulting hopefully in his deportation to Kenya or any of his beloved Islamic countries. Vote him OUT!!!

    September 12, 2012|6:13 pmThe U.S. Department of Justice filed two petitions Tuesday as part of their challenge to the Defense of Marriage Act, asking the Supreme Court to review cases that could ultimately lead to the court overturning the law that defines marriage as between and man and a woman. The specific part of the law that attorneys for the Justice Department want the court to focus on is Section 3, which they say violate the rights of legally married same-sex couples, arguing that it treats them differently than married heterosexual couples.In 2007, New York resident Edie Windsor married her...

    Why did an Obama advisor’s company release the unknown homemade anti Muslim movie to the world? The 6 month old homemade film went unnoticed until it was given worldwide release on Google.

Obama has even considered him for Commerce Secretary.[29] Schmidt was an informal advisor to the Obama presidential campaign...

    How little does Obama care about religious liberty? This little: A few minutes ago, in Oklahoma, The Becket Fund filed a lawsuit on behalf of a multi-billion dollar private business, Hobby Lobby. As you may know, Hobby Lobby is a privately owned company with 500 stores in 42 states, 22,000 employees, and $1.3 + billion in sales. If this private family owned business refuses to comply with the HHS mandate, the government will fine them $1.3 million per day. [The Becket Fund] It may be only a little to him.

You might recall that after Obama released his long form in a Pdf for the public to download on April 27, 2011, NBC's Savannah Guthrie boasted she was allowed to look at and feel the seal on Obama's Birth Certificate and reported that it said Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii.

    By improperly causing a hearing to be removed from the court calendar, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives prevented a Federal Firearms Licensee from seeking discovery crucial to its case for a scheduled revocation hearing, a motion filed on behalf of Brink’s, Incorporated, in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas at Dallas asserted Monday. Requesting either “to reinstate [the court] hearing date or, in the alternative, to reschedule [the] FFL revocation hearing,” the motion points out it “serves as Brink’s only opportunity to obtain discovery for the purposes of defending its license.” This...

    Independent federal legal officials have concluded that Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius violated federal law by conducting political activity at an official (and hence taxpayer funded) event, according to a statement released on Wednesday. “Sebelius violated the Hatch Act when she made extemporaneous partisan remarks in a speech delivered in her official capacity on February 25, 2012,” the news release from the U.S. Office of Special Council states. "The Hatch Act prohibits federal employees from using their official authority or influence to affect the outcome of an election. A federal employee is permitted to make partisan remarks when speaking in their...

    The last time the Wonder Kid who personally got Bin Laden attended an intelligence briefing was on September 5th. Since then it’s been all campaign events and softball questions from media lapdogs Obama found time to do multiple radio interviews, discuss Nicky Minaj, Hip Hop music and the Buccaneers. On September 11, this is what Obama was doing instead of attending a national intelligence briefing. Fact: When “Pimp with the Limp” DJ Laz talks NFL with the President of the United States, we’re listening. Obama barely had managed to drop jarring references to Pitbull and Flo-Rida before DJ Laz told...

Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) says House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) is conducting his probe of federal green energy project loans with bullying tactics and November’s elections in mind. Cummings, the panel’s top Democrat, sent Issa a letter Monday slamming a dozen subpoenas issued last week to current and former Energy Department employees and contractors, which included use of armed U.S. Marshals to serve subpoenas at the Energy Department (DOE). The Maryland Democrat called it “intimidation,” and said...

    ATLANTA—Former President Jimmy Carter issued a blistering indictment of the U.S. electoral process Tuesday, saying it is shot through with "financial corruption" that threatens American democracy. Speaking at the international human rights center that bears his name, Carter said "we have one of the worst election processes in the world right in the United States of America, and it's almost entirely because of the excessive influx of money." The 39th president lamented a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision that allows unlimited contributions to third-party groups that don't have to disclose their donors. The dynamic is fed, Carter said, by an...
