    Gateway Pundit ^ | January 24, 2015 | Kristinn Taylor
    The hypocrisy and anti-female gutter politics of liberals are well known, but that does not mean there are not knew depths yet to plumb.Take for example the President of the United States, Barack Obama. His authorized official Twitter account follows an account called “Sarah Palin’s Vagina @palinsvagina”.The avatar for the account is a photo of a taco.‘Taco’ is used as a crude euphemism for women’s private parts.Sarah Palin is the former governor of Alaska and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee. Since her nomination in the summer of 2008 liberals have engaged in a relentless crude sexist attack on Palin that would not...
  • Obama's grassroots group Organizing for Action won't shut down even after he leaves office

    **SNIP** OFA is offspring of Obama's presidential campaign apparatus, reconfigured in January of 2013 as he began his second and final term in the Oval Office. Previously it went by the nation Organizing for America and its sole goal was to get Obama elected to higher office. After Obama's time as a candidate came to an end it took on the unofficial role as the grassroots arm of his administration. It now has more than 250 chapters around the country. Billed as a non-partisan organization that doesn't directly support any candidates or political party, it's allegiance to the Democratic Party...

    Florida non-profits are committed to receiving and helping to relocate some of the undocumented children who have crossed the U.S. border from Central America.An organization named We Count! is becoming overwhelmed with the increased number of children. At present, they are running extremely low on funding, having to let go of half of their staff and only paying the remaining workers half a day’s wages.Another non-profit organization is American Friend’s Service Committee, which has attorneys volunteering their time to assist the children and their families with legal issues. Florida residents are becoming concerned with the influx of undocumented children in their...
  • Bad news: “Pajama Boy” not exactly a hit with target audience

    Okay, I admit that Morning Joe is probably not exactly the target audience for the White House’s latest attempt to hijack a holiday for its flailing ObamaCare system, but MSNBC is certainly the target network. Clearly, this strategy isn’t selling even with the more sympathetic members of the Morning Joe panel. Giggles abound as Mika Brzezinski described the onesie-wearing figure in the ad a “hipster-ish model,” while the rest of the panel seemed amusingly appalled (via Jammie Wearing Fool): Described as a “hipster-ish model” by co-host Mika Brzezinski, the appearance of the bespectacled, sideways-glancing, cocoa-drinking, onesie-wearing manchild drew guffaws from...

    We’re all having much merriment over the absurd juvenility of Organizing (organizing what?) for Action’s (what kind of action?) “Pajama Boy” ad for Obamacare. And it’s true that the image of a smug, supercilious little creep does give one the willies, as Jonah points out. But something Jay just said also ties in here: “Becoming a conservative and growing up are to a degree the same thing.” Among the many appalling traits of the modern Left — and they are legion — their fatuous air of unearned moral superiority has got to be among the most annoying. Sheltered, protected, coddled...

    ajama Boy’s place in Internet infamy was secured as soon as the insufferable man-child was tweeted out by Organizing for America. He is the face of a web ad that is the latest effort by the Obama team to leverage the holidays for conversation about Obamacare. “Wear pajamas,” the ad reads. “Drink hot chocolate. Talk about getting health insurance. #GetTalking.” And, sure enough, Pajama Boy is wearing pajamas—a zip-up onesie in classic Lamar Alexander plaid—and drinking hot chocolate. He is in his twenties, sporting hipster glasses he could have bought at Warby Parker and an expression of self-satisfied ironic amusement....

    Have you heard about “Pajama Boy”? He’s in an ad tweeted yesterday by a political nonprofit associated with President Obama, wearing what appears to be a plaid onesie while cradling a hot beverage and looking to one side through arched eyebrows.The point of the ad is to promote Obamacare among young adults. “Wear pajamas. Drink hot chocolate. Talk about getting health insurance,” says the ad copy.The tweet adds its own kicker: “How do you plan to spend the cold days of December?” It includes a link to a website from the group, Organizing for Action, that includes information on how...

    President Obama’s grassroots army, Organizing for America, played a significant supporting role in efforts to amp turnout for Kathy Hochul in yesterday’s big special election win, according to Democratic sources. OFA’s New York chapter – joining other national groups like the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee – manned phone banks and dropped campaign lit, and some even went door-to-door in the heavily Republican upstate district. OFA has helped other candidates and causes (including a controversial effort to ferry protesters to the Wisconsin State House this year), but this was no charity mission.

But the poll also says that a stronger majority of respondents think that Democratic state senators, who fled the Capitol on Thursday to avoid taking a vote on the Walker’s legislation, should return to Madison.

Gibbs said the crowd's response, at times cheering and shouting, was understandable.

    Since the Obama organization known as “Organizing for America” urged its supporters to attend the rally, this should prompt questions to the White House. But it’s doubtful the media will utter a peep. Here are the facts: the CPUSA was an official “endorsing organization” and was given space to set up a literature table by the rally organizers. Indeed, a two-page official list of “One Nation March” organizations shows that it was given a highly coveted “reserved space.” These officially-sanctioned groups also included the AFL-CIO and several left-wing labor unions; United for Peace and Justice, founded by veteran Marxist activist...

    Voter dissatisfaction with Republicans and Democrats is at historic levels, and the tea-party movement is hoping to play kingmaker in the November elections. The country’s current breed of discontent is ideal for the tea parties, because economic concerns are foremost, allowing the movement to sidestep the divisions between its libertarian and conservative wings. As the elections near, however, voters will want to know where the party stands not just on the economy but on social issues. A perfect illustration is drug policy, where conservatives advocate continued prohibition but libertarians argue for legalization. Which way should the tea party lean when...

For those who don’t know much about Texas politics, Austin is as liberal as the rest of the state is conservative. However, in an embarrassing display of just how marginalized the Austin liberals have become, the local newspaper has run 20 letters from readers regarding the council’s boycott — all of them opposed to it. While the Austin city council has likely not read the bill — and neither has the White House — Barack Obama’s political organizing group has decided...

    You can very easily discuss U.S. politics over a cup of tea or now, coffee. The much popular Sarah Palin 'hand reading' capabilities triggered Americans to find an alternative to the Tea Party. The alternative is the Coffee Party. I can't comment much on the goals or agenda's behind the two new political 'movements' on the US political scene, however, there is some indirect connection between the Coffee Party and Free Software (Muktware) or Open Source. The Coffee Party uses Drupal as their CMS, the same CMS which The White House Uses. For those who don't know what Drupal is,...

    President Obama's budget has added more than $100 billion in federal taxpayers' money to what is called "education," so that means it will be spent by alumni of the Saul Alinsky school of radical community organizing and/or the Chicago Democratic machine. We're indebted to Pamela Geller of AtlasShrugs.com for exposing the shocking use of some of these funds. Obama is using the public schools to recruit a private army of high-schoolers to "build on the movement that elected President Obama by empowering students across the country to help us bring about our agenda." We now know Obama's "agenda" is to...

    Dem Astroturfing Campaign Targets Conservative Talk Radio By Lachlan Markay Created 02/26/2010 - 13:16 Conservative dominance of the talk radio airwaves continues, but liberals are making concerted efforts to get their voices heard through large top-down campaigns. Organizing for America--the campaign arm of the Obama administration--is rolling out the astroturf in an effort to get liberal voices heard on the nation's most popular (i.e. conservative) talk radio shows. The campaign is called "On the Air." Visitors at radio.barackobama.com [1] (talk about grassroots!) are provided with a phone number of a conservative talk radio show, and a list of health care...

    The Democratic National Committee's Organizing for America has quietly launched an initiative aimed at making Obama supporters' voices heard on the largely conservative airwaves. "The fate of health reform has been a focus of debate in living rooms and offices, on TV and online -- and on talk radio. And since millions of folks turn to talk radio as a trusted source of news and opinions, we need to make sure OFA supporters are calling in with a pro-reform message," says the introduction to the online tool. The online tool presents users with a radio show discussing political topics, to...

    The investigators of the blogosphere are hot on the trail of the elusive (or omnipresent; take your pick) Ellie Light. And now research has started into finding information about and where some of her friends are, including Mark Spivey, Janet Leigh, Gloria Elle, Jan Chen, Jen Park, Lars Deeman, John F. Scott, Earnest Gardner, and probably many more by the end of the night. Just in from Patterico is the news that Sabrina Eaton, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reporter who broke this story, has received some new correspondence from Ms. Light: In a Sunday morning e-mail to The Plain Dealer,...

    http://my.barackobama.com/page/speakout has various calls for writing letters on several topics. Many letters on this site appear verbatim in various publications. Examples: http://my.barackobama.com/page/speakout/YouthLTE?js=false&zip=12345 http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=%22In+most+states%2C+companies+are+permitted+to+charge+a+22-year-old+woman+1.5+times+the+premium+of+a+22-year-old+man.%22&filter=0 The google result gives several links with sentences in them that are identical to the astroturf website of Teleprompter Jesus. e.g.: "In most states, companies are permitted to charge a 22-year-old woman 1.5 times the premium of a 22-year-old man."
