More Fast and Furious Weapons Show Up at Violent Crime Scenes in Mexico
 
Posted: 8/15/2013 7:45:00 AM EST Katie Pavlich  
                     
              
A month ago, Republican Senator Chuck Grassley sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder asking why the Department of Justice was covering up deaths and weapons linked to Operation Fast and Furious. The inquiry came shortly after a Mexican police chief and his body guard were killed by cartel members using Fast and Furious guns.

Now, CBS News' Sharyl Attkisson has learned of more Fast and Furious guns surfacing at crime scenes in Mexico. 
Three more weapons from Fast and Furious have turned up at crime scenes in Mexico, CBS News has learned, as the toll from the controversial federal operation grows.
 At least 1400 of those weapons are still missing. The only way ATF can recover these weapons is when they are left at crime scenes. 
 Attorney General Eric Holder is still in criminal and civil contempt of Congress. The House Oversight Committee is currently in a court battle with the Department of Justice over documents surrounding the operation and President Obama's assertion of executive privilege over documents in June 2012         read full story

Russell Simmons, Rape Video Clown
Michelle Malkin | Aug 16, 2013     
Oh, what a tangled web libs weave when first they practice to aggrieve!
Let's review: Democrats and civil rights leaders are busy conducting a ridiculous witch hunt against a harmless Missouri rodeo clown who dared to wear an Obama mask. Oprah played the race card on a Swiss shop owner, whom she dubiously accused of denying her a look at a $35,000 handbag because she is black. P.C. mau-mau-ers steamrolled Paula Deen over three-decade-old comments. And feminists continue smearing Republicans as "War on Women" misogynists, while enabling Democratic perv predators Bob Filner and Anthony Weiner for years.
Now, along comes left-wing rap mogul Russell Simmons this week promoting a racially shocking, rape-mocking YouTube video depicting a Harriet Tubman "sex tape" with her white slave master. Tweeted Simmons late Wednesday night: "Funniest thing I've ever seen." The Obama pal and outspoken liberal linked to the vulgar video on his "All Def Digital" YouTube channel.

 Instead of calling for public boycotts, protests and Justice Department investigations, the NAACP grievance-mongers helped Simmons out by privately advising him to take down the video. The tolerance mob's crusaders against rodeo clowns couldn't let a rape video clown knock them off message!        View Full Article
 

Of course not, that would be pointing the finger of blame

    
The headline at CNN Money was, "Why America's Youth Aren't Finding Jobs." 
If you expected an analysis of how and why President Barack Obama's policies hurt the job market for the young, think again. Believe it or not, CNN wrote a piece, supposedly explaining the tight job market, without using the following words: Obama, Obama administration, taxes, regulations, "stimulus" program or, of course, ObamaCare.

Missing Iowa border collie found stuck in a tree

This Aug. 11, 2013, photo provided by Ron Stevenson shows Laddy, a border collie, who was found Sunday stuck up in a tree two blocks from his Davenport home, Iowa. Cynthia Weeks, his owner, said she believes Laddy escaped Friday from an invisible electronic fencing system thanks to a non-working battery in his collar. She said his love for squirrels and chasing things probably led him up the tree. Despite a few abrasions on the pads of his feet, he's otherwise fine. (AP Photo/Ron Stevenson) Full Story

Wouldn't be surprised since they flew the dog in on its own "Osprey" airplane

Political Cartoons by Glenn McCoy

President Obama seems genuinely passionate about sports -- and likewise uses that interest as a way to portray himself as a "regular guy."  But there's a pattern here: Lots of big talk, but then plenty of disappointment when it's time for him to match his words with action. For example, remember this?
He went 2 for 22 -- which will perhaps make it a little harder for him to trash talk Kobe Bryant

Then there's the golf game he enjoyed earlier this week on Martha's Vineyard.


And here's what happened, according to the reporter who was there:
His first putt was a miss, which Obama reacted to by leaning back and kicking his knee up, as if trying to coax the ball into breaking right. He let out a little, "Ooooh," as it happened. Next one missed, too. Last one he just dragged in the hole.
With all the time he's devoted to playing golf, you'd think the results would be a little better.  But then again, given all the time he's spent proclaiming his intention to "pivot" to the economy, you'd think that would be a little better, too.
Remember that Organizing For America event, aimed at promoting the President’s signature piece of Legislation? Remember how only one person showed up? Well, one of the constants in life is that things can always get worse. President Barack Obama’s shadowy campaign apparatus, Organizing For America (OFA) held a recent event to raise awareness about climate change. . . Well, they tried to hold an event. It turns out no-one showed up.
Originally the event was scheduled to be held at the Georgetown Waterfront. Just to show that they were serious, the group called the rally the “Climate Change Day of Action” on their event page. “Action” quickly turned to inaction as the gathering ended up as a non-meeting of clearly uncommitted leftists.
In all fairness, there was some rain at the time of the event. You would think environmentalists would be willing to brave the elements of nature to nurture their cause. . . But I guess you’d be wrong. Between the one person that attended the Obamacare event, and the zero people that poured out for climate change, it looks like the group is hitting a nice average of 0.5 people per rally. Surprisingly decent for this President’s radical interests. View Full Article

 
 

Is Fort Knox  Empty (Is the Gold Missing)...


Whispers are swirling around Capitol Hill that Fort Knox is empty….
That all the gold is gone…
That the U.S. government has been shipping gold to nations like China (as collateral for a weak dollar).

Scary isn’t it?

Without any gold in Fort Knox, the United States has nothing backing the dollar but faith.
Here’s what Wall Street Daily analysts have confirmed…

The U.S. government has NOT done a public audit of the 
gold in Fort Knox since 1974.  
                                                                           
Policymakers have ignored all requests for a new audit, too.

Worse yet, $982 million worth of gold has left                                                     
JFK International Airport in New York since the year began.
The destination? Somewhere in South Africa.

The gold shipment was confirmed by the
U.S. Census Bureau’s foreign trade division.

That begs the following question…

Do you think Fort Knox is empty?

NAACP calls on Justice Dept., Secret Service to investigate rodeo clown flap
 
The NAACP says the clown was guilty of inciting violence against the president.
                                                                      
In a statement reported by Breitbart, the NAACP’s state president, Mary Ratliff, wrote: “The activities at the Missouri State Fair targeting and inciting violence against our president are serious and warrant a full review by both the Secret Service and the Justice Department. Incidents involving individuals acting out with extreme violent behavior in movie theaters, schools, churches, political appearances, and outdoor events in general speaks volume to the irresponsible behavior of all the parties involved with the incendiary events at the Missouri State Fair.”
The rodeo incident has grabbed national headlines. And the fallout so far has included the resignation of the head of Missouri’s rodeo-clown organization, and the announcement of Missouri State Fair officials that all rodeo clowns will now have to take sensitivity training as a condition of their employment.
Meanwhile, the clown who actually performed the skit — donned a mask of the president and mocked as an announcer asked the crowd if they wanted to see a bull run him down — has been banned for life from state rodeo performances.
Now the call is for the federal government to get involved.
Ms. Ratliff also said, in her statement, that the state is to blame for providing funding for the fair, an annual popular event.
“Our legislature has failed to support Medicare Expansion in Missouri, has consistently attempted to dismantle our Human Rights Commission, fail to adequately fund urban schools — [which] are predominantly African American — yet they are subsidizing the Missouri State Fair to the tune of $400,000. We are calling for the subsidy to stop.”
She went on, Breitbart reported, to say that Governor Nixon’s “planned Pancake Breakfast for Thursday should be his ‘Last Supper’ at the Missouri State Fair in response to the racially intolerant attacks on his Commander in Chief.”

I've seen a few posts on this, but the first one on "sensitivity training"



Rodeo clowns asked to take ‘sensitivity training’ (The Country Has Lost It's Mind)

In the wake of a rodeo clown’s anti-Obama skit this weekend, the Missouri State Fair is forcing all clowns to undergo sensitivity training.
The state fair commission voted Monday to ratify the decision to ban the clown in question who wore an Obama mask as the rodeo announcer asked if the crowd wanted to see him get run down by a bull. The crowd enthusiastically approved, according to local media
reports.
But the state commission went further, saying it will require that before the Rodeo Cowboy Association can take part in any future state fair, “they must provide evidence to the director of the Missouri State Fair that they have proof that all officials and subcontractors of the MRCA have successfully participated in sensitivity training.”

Why is it, that it seems like,one way or another, any disagreement with the president is always blamed on racism or the color of obamas skin

Here is a contemporary political truth: Every time you think that the left and its political party have hit moral bottom, they will eventually prove you wrong.The most recent example occurred last week in Louisiana. The head of the Louisiana Democratic Party, State Senator Karen Carter Peterson, D-New Orleans, stood before her colleagues in the state Senate and announced the reason people oppose Obamacare.
"You ready?" she asked three times.
It is President Obama's color.

America is in real trouble if Peterson represents a large majority of black Americans. And we have every reason to believe that she does. She represents a 48-percent black district. And virtually every black leader routinely charges whites with racism.

It wouldn’t be summer really if America didn’t get to witness another lavish Martha’s Vineyard vacation by Barack Obama and his posse.
Maybe we should just be thankful that he didn’t first ruin American credit like he did in 2011 before departing for the island off of the Massachusetts’ Horn of Plenty.
Hotel rates in the summertime on the island range from $250 to $2100 per night. That’s more even than good seats at an NFL football game cost.
Don’t get me wrong; I’m not against a president going on vacation. But when Americans face one of the worst job prospects in the history of our country, I can think of a few low-key things that a president can do instead of jet setting with the over-privileged, rich white folks at the beach.
For example, he could go vacation at home in Chicago and help the city get a grip on the violence that plagues his hometown.
In Obama’s own neighborhood of Hyde Park for example, from the period of June 27th to July 27th, the Chicago Tribune says that 0.6 violent crimes were reported per 1,000 residents. That comes out to about 720 violent crimes per 100,000 resident per year.  That’s about twice the national average according to statistics provided by the FBI.
In 2011, the FBI reported that there were 386 violent crimes reported per 100,000 for the nation as a whole.
But the Hyde Park violence is nothing compared to the crimes that the most violent Chicago neighborhoods produce.
The Chicago Tribune keeps an online database of crimes, including murders, and according to that record, the two most violent Chicago neighborhoods are the Englewood and Washington Park neighborhoods near to Obama’s Hyde Park address. Each produced 3.7 violent crimes per 1,000 residents for the June 27th to July 27th period.
That would work out to an astonishing 4,440 violent crimes per year per 100,000 residents, or nearly 12 times that national average.
Fortunately some of that mayhem can just be put down to the dog days of summer. The Englewood neighborhood for example has only had about 926 violent crimes in the last 365 days or just 2.4 times the national average.
And it’s not just robbery and assault that’s common.
A ring of neighborhoods surrounding Obama’s famous southside digs provides some of the highest murder rates in the country.

Political Cartoons by Robert Ariail
By Robert Ariail - August 12,

    
    I was out in the desert this weekend at our second home, where, borrowing the words from an old song "nothing is heard of a discouraging word" except if someone is discussing their round of golf.  While waking my dogs for their morning ride in my golf cart I got to 'thinking of what's going on in this country and all I could think of was What Happened? And when did it happen?

1.  In the mid to late 50's I saw President Truman at a Rams game in Los Angeles walking up the aisle as everyone was yelling "Give them hell, Harry".
2.  In 1967 I believe, I got off the plane from Los Angeles to New York and went to the baggage claim and there was former Vice President & Governor Richard Nixon waiting with some people for his luggage.  He had flown first class and I obviously didn't.
3.  In the early 1990's my son and I were going to an office in Century City and as we turned the corner in the lobby my son walked into Ronald Reagan. The security guys with him laughed as my son said he was sorry.
4.   In the mid 2000's I went to a luncheon in Century City which was attended by Jimmy Carter.  When I parked in the building I had to open my trunk for an inspection.  I met him and had a picture taken with him as my company had built a house for Habitat for Humanity.
5.   In the middle 2000's Bill Clinton was the honored guest at a house in my gate guarded community and as I drove by the house he was going in so, I honked and waived and he waived back. I bring this up because none of it was a big deal.  Today, however, when the President travels, streets are closed, Freeways in Los Angeles are closed, sections of downtowns are closed.  WHY?

If the mainstream media were a college class, Republicans would be taking advanced calculus taught by a short tempered professor from South Korea with bad English, while Democrats would be taking remedial reading pass/fail. In other words, as long as liberals don't do anything to embarrass the Democrat Party, they get treated with kid gloves while all Republicans should assume reporters would just as soon punch them in the throat as ask them a question. What this means is that Obama seldom has to deal with tough questions a Republican in his shoes would have to hear asked on an almost daily basis. That was the case in 2008, it was the case in 2012 and it's still the case today. Whether you're talking about press conferences, cable news shows, or the editorial pages, Barack Obama should be hit with questions like these on a regular basis until he comes up with some real answers instead of stonewalling or ignoring them until they're heard no more.
1) Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan "described himself as mujahedeen" and yelled “Allahu Akbar” as he murdered 13 of his fellow soldiers. As Commander-In-Chief, do you agree with the Department of Defense report that labeled that killing as "workplace violence" or was that an act of terrorism?
2) Do you regret aggravating racial tensions in America by inserting yourself into the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case by saying, "If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon?"
3) Americans died in Benghazi and it’s a "phony scandal" -- Would you tell a mother who lost a son there that it was a "phony scandal?"
4) If it's legal for you to unilaterally delay the implementation of the Affordable Care Act's Employer Mandate without Congress having a say, couldn't a Republican President legally choose to unilaterally delay or stop the entire bill?

AFP - Revellers at a South African outdoor rock festival no longer need to queue to slake their thirst -- a flying robot will drop them beer by parachute.
After clients place an order using a smartphone app, a drone zooms 15 metres (50 feet) above the heads of the festival-goers to make the delivery.
Carel Hoffmann, director of the Oppikoppi festival held on a dusty farm in the country's northern Limpopo province, said the app registers the position of users using the GPS satellite chips on their phones.
"The delivery guys have a calibrated delivery drone. They send it to the GPS position and drops it with a parachute," he explained.
The drone was built in South Africa and nicknamed "Manna" after the Old Testament-story of bread that fell from the sky to feed the Israelites travelling through the desert following their exodus from Egypt.
"It's an almost Biblical thing that beer is dropping from the sky," said Hoffmann.
The beer, free at this stage, is dropped in plastic cups and the drone is performing well.
"Every time it drops a parachute a crowd of 5,000 cheers," he said

Disabled Veteran Kicked Off Boardwalk Because of Service Dog

Veteran Kicked Off Boardwalk Because of Service Dog
 


A disabled U.S. Army veteran, who served our country for 19 years, says he was kicked off the North Wildwood, New Jersey, boardwalk Thursday night, simply for having his service dog by his side.
Jared Goering served 1 tour in Iraq, 2 in Afghanistan, and spent 19 years as an active member of the Army. Jared said, "I served from 1993 to 2012." He then told NBC40 he couldn't sleep Thursday night because he felt so disrespected by a North Wildwood police officer.
Goering said, "Just like any veteran with disabilities with a service dog, to come back and be harassed and shown no respect, it upset me - it really bothered me. I was up most of the night thinking about it."

A North Wildwood police officer issued Jared and his wife a summons because he had a dog on the boardwalk.
“I expected to get more respect from him because of the jobs that we both have to do,” Goering said.
"He mockingly asked if all veterans get service dogs," said Jared’s wife, Sally Goering, “his dog is medically necessary and he is a service dog."
In 2009, Jared was serving in Afghanistan when his vehicle was blown up by IEDs, twice, within 36 hours. Now, Jared uses his 3-year-old service dog, Gator, short for Navigator, to help him walk, and to get up and down stairs.
Jared explained, "I also suffer from PTSD, severe anxiety, depression - and my dog plays a big part in my life. His main purpose is mobility but he also helps me with all my emotional problems from combat."
Jared and his wife Sally say the incident occurred on the 26th street North Wildwood boardwalk. The Goering family said, even after showing the officer the dog's service identification card, he still issued them a summons and kicked them off the boardwalk.
Sally said, "We want the public to be aware that there are different types of disabilities and
Northwood Wildwood Police say Goering notified a shift Sergeant shortly after he received the summons from the officer. The shift Sergeant then took the summons and filed for a dismissal. The incident is being investigated by the Internal Affairs supervisor, according to police.
"The City of North Wildwood and the North Wildwood Police Department have always proudly supported military veterans and continue to support all branches of the military. The Police Department is comprised of some military veterans and parents of active military who are presently serving in the armed forces. This police department looks forward to and participates in all the military special events throughout the year. The North Wildwood Police Department has always respected and appreciated the sacrifices of all those who serve our great nation," according to a statement released Saturday.
The mayor of North Wildwood says they will issue a formal apology, if appropriate, pending the outcome of the investigation.
