Just a few quick facts as we embark on another four years of President Obama (and if you think things will be getting better any time soon, you probably think the slaughter of four Americans in Benghazi was about a YouTube video...ah, but what difference at this point does it make???).
1st Inauguration (1/20/09) 2nd Inauguration (1/20/13)
Isn't it ironic that:
1) Super Bowl Champion Baltimore Raven's Ray Lewis - suspect in a murder trial in 2000 - and father of six children with four different women - declares himself to be a "Christian? thanks the Lord for the opportunity to play in the Super Bowl victory.? Yet, was Lewis ever put under the scrutiny that Tim Tebow - also a Christian, (lacking the notorious background of Lewis) suffered at the hands of the media and the usual anti-religious crowd? Was Lewis made fun of the way Tebow was? No. Why not? Could there be a racist element at play here?
2) Obama and his Administration, famous for going after "waterboarding" as some sort of horrific torture device which needed to be done away with to protect the "rights" of terrorists, now want to institute a plan in which Americans who may or may not be terrorists can be killed by drones. OK. I get it. It's NOT OK to use "enhanced interrogation techniques" against known terrorists, but it IS OK just to kill people - including Americans - who may or may not be terrorists?
3) No one can criticize First Queen Michelle Obama's large derrière, but it is OK for Ms. Obama to dictate to school cafeterias across the country what they can and cannot serve to students in order for the students to "be healthy."
4) So Beyonce (BFF of Obama) has to lip-synch the national anthem at her buddies recent coronation, yet she can belt out her own tunes at the Super Bowl halftime show??? What's up with that? Oh, I do suppose that like Obama, she probably could have cared less about The Star-Spangled Banner and what it means, when her own hits are much more important to the uninformed masses...
5) The Obama administration that is so busy right now clamping down on the 2nd Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens had no problem giving guns to members of Mexican drug cartels with reckless abandon. The guns passed along to criminals during Obama's "Fast and Furious" operation have been used to kill innocent people who got in the way of the Mexican drug wars AND an American ATF agent. Strange how little is reported anymore about the "Fast and Furious" operation, yet we heard on a daily basis how the rights of the law-abiding American citizens must be curtailed when it comes to guns...
6) The Democrats are famous for trying to legislate and create laws pertaining to every little aspect of people's daily lives, yet when it comes to enforcing such laws and punishing criminals in the process, what happens? Well, Dems are pretty soft on crime to begin with, and do tend to side with the criminals in many cases rather than the victims. So what good are all the laws on this and that anyhow if they are not enforced?
And last but not least - isn't it ironic:
Christopher Dorner, former LAPD policeman, who went on a killing spree that resulted in the deaths of three people, has reportedly been killed after exchanging gunfire with police in a mountain cabin.
Dorner's murderous rampage and subsequent manhunt began when he shot Monica Quan and her fiancé Keith Lawrence in Irvine, California on February 3rd. On February 7th, Dorner killed a police officer and wounded two others during a stand-off near Big Bear Lake, California. Dorner appears to have lost his life when the cabin he was trapped in burned to the ground.
During this week-long episode, the mainstream media provided a lot of information about Christopher Dorner.
We learned that Dorner was a former LAPD cop. We learned that Dorner was a former Navy reservist. We learned that Dorner graduated in 2001 from Southern Utah University where he majored in political science. We learned that Dorner earned awards for rifle and pistol marksmanship while in the Navy Reserves. We learned that Dorner had been fired from the LAPD in 2009 for allegedly making false statements about a fellow officer. We learned that Dorner had written a lengthy, hate-filled manifesto prior to going on his killing spree.
What we did not learn was that Christopher Dorner was a liberal.
Here's what the mainstream media has tended to "overlook" in its "reporting:"
Dorner supported gun control. Dorner was a fan of CNN and MSNBC. Dorner "embraced" the LGBT community. Dorner was a big fan of Piers Morgan (in his manifesto he wrote: "Give Piers Morgan an indefinite resident alien and Visa card"). Dorner praised President Obama and criticized those who disagreed with him. Dorner ranted against the NRA. Dorner mentioned Chris Matthews, Joe Scarborough, Pat Harvey, Brian Williams, Soledad O'Brien, Wolf Blitzer, Meredith Viera, Tavis Smiley, and Anderson Cooper and encouraged them to "keep up the great work and follow Cronkite's lead." To the head of the NRA, Dorner wrote: "Wayne LaPierre, President of the NRA, you're a vile and inhumane piece of sh*t. You are a failure of a human being. May all of your immediate and distant family die horrific deaths in front of you."
Examples of Dorner's liberal leanings can be found throughout his manifesto. Sadly, many news outlets refused to report on ALL the pages of the manifesto (specifically those that shed light on Dorner's liberal ideology).
Why wasn't Dorner's political persuasion big news? After all, whenever there is a mass shooting and/or murderous spree around the country, the media immediately shifts into overdrive attempting to tie in the shooter(s) with the Republican or Tea Party, or conservative ideology. Even when there is NO link, the media will manufacture one until the facts come out to prove otherwise.
Remember Jared Loughner - the Arizona shooter? Immediately the media tried to tie in Loughner to the right. Paul Krugman of the New York Times implied that the shooting took place because Democrat Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (who was wounded during the shooting and has now become Obama's emotional pawn promoting anti-gun legislation) seat was not won by a Republican. Other "journalists" tried to blame Sarah Palin - saying Palin's remark "Don't retreat - reload" or Palin's map on her website, using targets on key states that Republicans should focus on for upcoming elections, were to blame. Eventually, all the speculation and misleading reports were exposed for what they were - falsehoods. (Never mind that Loughner had many leftie anti-American books in his reading collection...)
And what about the Aurora theater shooting? Shortly after the massacre, ABC's Brian Ross stated that the Colorado shooter - Jamie Holmes - was a Tea Party member. Ross was wrong. Holmes was not a Tea Party member, nor affiliated with the Tea Party in any way. ABC later had to apologize to viewers for their outright lie. Holmes was later found to be mentally unstable.
Closer to home, the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek was devastated when shooter Wade Michael Page opened fire, killing six people and wounding four others. Immediately, the media tried to link Page to the "extreme right." Later it was learned that Page considered himself to be a "neo-Nazi." (Lest anyone need reminding, Nazism is closer to socialism and liberalism.) Attempts to paint Page as an "extreme right-winger" later fizzled - as they should have.
More recently the Sandy Hook school shootings captured the attention of the nation. The media flocked to the scene like vultures, reporting non-stop for weeks on the mass murders and subsequent investigation in the town. Of course, in their efforts to get the story out, they obsessed over Adam Lanza's mother's gun collection. In a shameless attempt to create a link between Lanza's mom and the right, journalists reported that Nancy Lanza was a "doomsday prepper" and had a real fondness for guns as exhibited by her vast collection of firearms. It eventually came out that Lanza was NOT a "doomsday prepper" and that she considered her guns a "hobby" and loved target-shooting. Adam Lanza, the actual shooter, appears to have had mental issues and no political affiliation whatsoever.
Back to Christopher Dorner -
Here IS a shooter and killer who actually stated support of liberals and liberal causes in his own manifesto.
WHY ISN'T SUCH INFORMATION CONSIDERED NEWSWORTHY by the mainstream media?
Bias and hypocrisy at its finest.
Dr. Benjamin Carson's speech at the recent National Prayer Breakfast runs almost half an hour, but it is well worth the effort to watch:
Dr. Benjamin Carson lives and breaths conservative values. With this prayer breakfast speech, Dr. Carson has succeeded in stirring up the wrath of liberals/socialists everywhere. Just watch Obama - with his arrogant smirk gone, looking down - appearing uncomfortable because Dr. Carson is clearly speaking out against the destructive intentions that Obama has for the country..
Using facts, examples, observations, personal insight, and his own history of growing up in poverty and achieving success, Dr. Carson manages to convey common sense solutions to many of the problems America faces. And he does so in an eloquent and straightforward manner - speaking about the importance of a good education (learning enables one to truly be free), personal responsibility (those two words the lefties hate), love of country (many on the left cannot relate, and we currently have a president who doesn't like the very country he was elected to represent), and a real solution to health care issues (a direct slap at Obamacare).
The conservative movement needs people like Dr. Carson. Just as we need more Paul Ryans and Marco Rubios. With the words and inspiration of such individuals, we will wake up many in the United States who have been lulled into a stupor - a stupor which has allowed a socialist like Barack Hussein Obama to continue in his quest to destroy the very foundation of our great nation.

There was a chemistry professor in a large college that had some exchange students in the class.
One day while the class was in the lab, the professor noticed one young man, an exchange student, who kept rubbing his back and stretching as if his back hurt.
The professor asked the young man what was the matter.
The student told him he had a bullet lodged in his back.
He had been shot while fighting communists in his native country who were trying to overthrow his country's government and install a new communist regime.
In the midst of his story, he looked at the professor and asked a strange question.
He asked: "Do you know how to catch wild pigs?"
The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punch line.
The young man said that it was no joke.
"You catch wild pigs by finding a suitable place in the woods and putting corn on the ground.
The pigs find it and begin to come every day to eat the free corn. When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down one side of the place where they are used to coming. When they get used to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you put up another side of the fence.
They get used to that and start to eat again. You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in the last side. The pigs, which are used to the free corn, start to come
through the gate to eat that free corn again. You then slam the gate on them and catch the whole herd.
Suddenly the wild pigs have lost their freedom.
They run around and around inside the fence, but they are caught.
Soon they go back to eating the free corn. They are so used to it that they have forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity."
The young man then told the professor that is exactly what he sees happening in America .
The government keeps pushing us toward Communism/Socialism and keeps spreading the
free corn out in the form of programs such as supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, tax exemptions, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP), welfare, medicine, drugs, etc., while we continually lose our freedoms, just a little at a time.
One should always remember two truths:
There is no such thing as a free lunch, and you can never hire someone to provide a service for you cheaper than you can do it yourself.
If you see that all of this wonderful government "help" is a problem confronting the future of democracy in America, you might want to send this story on to your friends.
If you think the free ride is essential to your way of life, then you will probably not want to share this story with others.
BUT, God help us all when the gate slams shut!

Last week I purchased a burger at a fast food restaurant for $1.58. The counter girl
took my $ 2 and I was digging for my change when I pulled 8 cents from my
pocket and gave it to her. She stood there, holding the nickel and 3
pennies, while looking at the screen on her register.
I sensed her discomfort and tried to tell her to just give me two quarters,
but she hailed the manager for help. While he tried to explain the
transaction to her, she stood there and cried.
Why do I tell you this? Because of the evolution in teaching math since the
1. Teaching Math In 1950s
A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is 4/5
of the price. What is his profit?
2. Teaching Math In 1960s
A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is 4/5
of the price, or $80. What is his profit?
3. Teaching Math In1970s
A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is
$80. Did he make a profit?
4. Teaching Math In 1980s
A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is $80
and his profit is $20. Your assignment: Underline the number 20.
5. Teaching Math In 1990s
A logger cuts down a beautiful forest because he is selfish and
inconsiderate and cares nothing for the habitat of animals or the
preservation of our woodlands. He does this so he can make a profit of $20.
What do you think of this way of making a living?
Topic for class participation after answering the question: How did the
birds and squirrels feel as the logger cut down their homes? (There are no
wrong answers, and if you feel like crying, it's ok. )

Who cares, just steal the lumber from your rich neighbor's property. He
won't have a gun to stop you, and it's OK anyway cuz it's redistributing
Funny... my husband and I were discussing the Academy Awards a few days before the event ever took place. Of course we were not going to watch an awards ceremony made up of Hollywood lefties patting themselves on the backs and awarding awards to themselves - content to bask in the adoration of the "little people" who made them stars in the first place. We actually joked about how the Obama's - who love to insert themselves into every media or sporting event - wouldn't be making an appearance - that even they wouldn't be able to pull off an Oscar visit...
Guess we were wrong.
Never before has a First Lady or president - been involved with the Oscars - especially to present an award. Yet, here we had Michelle Obama - surrounded by props of military personnel - presenting The Best Picture award. Being "streamlined" from the White House. Did anyone "feel proud for their country" at this moment? No, I would venture to say. Many felt shame and disgust.
Rush Limbaugh pegged this one for what it was worth. The wife of President Barack Hussein Obama - the very same same Obama - who allowed four Americans (including a U.S. Ambassador) to die at an Embassy during his watch, and then proceeded to cover up any investigation into the debacle - ends up presenting the best picture award to "Argo" - a movie about saving Americans stuck at an Embassy! The irony is priceless.
And Michelle Obama - during her bloviating speech - did not even bother to pay tribute to the military or the military personnel being used as props behind her. Instead, she talked about "gay marriage" and being all the best we can be no matter who we are - yet neglected to mention anything about the United States military.
New outlets even have asked the question: "why WAS Michelle Obama at the Oscars?"
The Obama's have no shame. They love the limelight. They are no better - or any smarter - than the Kardashians...or Honey Boo Boo...or American Idol. No wonder Obama is often called "President Kardashian." (At least the stories of the little man-child golfing with Tiger Woods are finally tapering off....)
Sadly, many of the low-information voters eat this stuff up.
We deserve the people we elect. Guess we as a country really did something wrong - and are being punished with the Obamas for another four years. Cool, hip, trendy. Yet - totally unpresidential. Dittos for his little missus.
Three good comments from viewers on Michelle's Oscar gig:
"They should make a movie on Benghazi and then let her announce it."
"We are now in the age were government and hollywood are now one in the same. Smoke and mirrors on the state run media, and propaganda shows and movies on the TV. Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, your country is now dead. Please plan your lives accordingly and resist at all cost. The next generation depends on your resistance and your sacrifice. You are the generation that will decide the fate of the world."
"just solidifies hollywood as a political propaganda machine to perpetuate social decay."
Sad but true. Can First Ladies stoop any lower? Can a president continue to portray "cool" at the expense of the country?
Just wait for the next four dismal, destructive, dangerous years.
But wait! The March Madness picks are coming up! Americans everywhere will wait with anticipation over who The One - Barry Obama - will pick for the NCAA college basketball tourney!!! Quick - get a camera crew to the White House!!! Heck, get several!!! This kind of stuff IS really newsworthy!!!
,,,while the country goes to hell.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words - or perhaps "trillions:"
Just look at the National Debt. Scary times are here, and things are getting even worse.
In "anticipation" of the sequester (which is little more than slowing down spending for less than 30 days - and doesn't consist of any "cuts" at all), we have a reckless president putting the country in danger - only to help achieve his political goals of spend, spend, spend.
"The Department of Homeland Security has started releasing hundreds of illegal immigrants held in local jails in anticipation of automatic budget cuts, in a move one Arizona sheriff called politically motivated — and dangerous.
Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu said Tuesday that Immigration and Customs Enforcement released more than 500 detainees in his county alone over the weekend. A spokesman for Babeu told FoxNews.com that ICE officials have said they plan to release a total of nearly 10,000 illegal immigrants.
Babeu described the move as a “mass budget pardon” and suggested the administration was going to unnecessary lengths to demonstrate the impact of the so-called sequester.
“President Obama would never release 500 criminal illegals to the streets of his hometown, yet he has no problem with releasing them in Arizona. The safety of the public is threatened and the rule of law discarded as a political tactic in this sequester battle,” he said. – Fox News
IN "ANTICIPATION" OF BUDGET CUTS???
Give me a break. This is Obama - following the Chicago playbook for creating chaos and panic. Stirring up the masses because most Americans don't appear too concerned about the "sequester" and aren't listening to Obama's doom-and-gloom campaign message about such.
We've heard it all before.
Obama cries wolf - the media plays it up - people panic - and in the end, Obama gets what he wants. This time his M.O. regarding a tiny slow-down in spending doesn't appear to be working, so he had to do something drastic - and dangerous.
People, this is NOT the type of action of a president. What Obama is doing is NOT in the best interest of the United States - it is the polar opposite. Releasing dangerous - and illegal - prisoners into the country to make a point about how "dangerous" the sequestration will be has gone way too far - even for The One. This president is putting people's lives at risk for nothing more than political gain. (And the ironic part of all of this is that in 2011, Obama vowed to enforce "sequestration!" See: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=kj1y3q92sog)
Already the White House is spinning this reckless and deadly prisoner release with the "we didn't know" reaction they used with Benghazi. "We didn't know it was a terrorist attack" (except we really did - right away - and we lied to the American people for weeks for political gain.) The same is happening right now.
Think the media will give this major story - which could and should lead to impeachment proceedings against Obama - the time of day? Don't hold your breath. I can only imagine the "freakouts" now occuring in newsrooms across the country on how to help the president survive this one....and sadly, Obama probably will.
