White Guy Imitates Obama Perfectly, Part I

November 29, 2010

Steve Bridges imitated George Bush on the Jay Leno Show during the entire eight years he was president.

He was made up to look and act almost exactly like Bush.

He has now started imitating Obama and REALLY does it right.

Woman who was ‘exhausted’ defending Barack Obama’s policies loses her job; still defends Obama…

November 25, 2010

The woman who put President Barack Obama on the spot by telling him she was “exhausted” by defending his economic policies has lost her job.


Velma Hart, an Obama supporter, became a celebrity after she expressed her frustration with Mr Obama at a televised “town hall” meeting in September.


The chief financial officer of AmVets, a military veterans’ group, seemed to sum up the growing disillusionment with Mr Obama.


Mrs Hart, from Upper Marlboro, Maryland, said she was summoned last week.


“They called me in on a Friday afternoon and said they had made a decision … we should make that cut,” she told CNBC.


She said she was “afraid” but remained hopeful and believed the president’s economic policies would work.


“I’m a data-driven person. The data says the economy’s getting better. … I want to focus on the positive and be optimistic. And assume that somehow things will work out, that there’s an opportunity out there with Velma’s name on it that’s right around the corner.”


Mrs Hart made attracted attention in September when she challenged Mr Obama.


“I’m one of your middle-class Americans,” she said at the meeting. “And, quite frankly, I’m exhausted. I’m exhausted of defending you, defending your administration, defending the mantle of change that I voted for and deeply disappointed with where we are right now.


“I have been told that I voted for a man who said he was going to change things in a meaningful way for the middle class. I’m one of those people. And I’m waiting, sir. I’m waiting.”





What Does Obama’s Homeland Security Department Have in Store For You Next?

November 25, 2010

Do you want evidence that Homeland Security is planning TSA-like “security checkpoints” for public events and venues like expo halls, concerts, sports arenas, etc.?


What if I told you that the things they have planned for you are even worse than the TSA checkpoints you’ve seen at the airports?  What if I told you they had mobile interrogation checkpoints and “behavior scanners” planned?


Read the article at this link, and check out the Homeland Security video demonstrating their new FAST program (“Future Attribute Screening Technology”), by which you’ll be electronically “pre-screened” for “hostile intent” before being allowed to enter your chosen public venue. 


According to the video by Herr Fuehrer…er…ah…I mean Homeland Security…the so-called “noninvasive” sensors used at these special security checkpoints are designed to “measure behavioral and physiological indications of mal-intent, or the intent and desire to cause harm.”  


Yes…I’m quoting them directly.  They now have electronic equipment designed to measure your state of mind, and determine whether or not you might have “mal-intent…or intent and desire to cause harm” before you enter a public venue.


So God help you if you were mad at the kids 20 minutes earlier, or had a fallout with your boss, or endured some other stressful event that left you feeling angry and a bit aggressive.  Whatever you do, don’t try to go to a public venue to relax a bit.  They’ll nail your angry ass to a wall.


Shades of the futuristic sci-fi movie Minority Report, starring Tom Cruise, in which criminals are caught, arrested and tried before the crimes they commit are even committed


But it’s true. Just check out the Homeland Security video in the article at this link and see for yourself.


And don’t worry about missing your event just because you had to go through this FAST screening.  Homeland Security promises to have “multiple screening lanes for higher subject throughput.”  Meaning they can run a lot of you through the gamut at once.  (Not me.  I’ll just keep my angry ass home.)


In short, as the article with the video points out, Americans will be mandated to prove to the government that they are well-behaved slaves before they are allowed to enter any public venue, or do anything in public.


If you don’t have time to watch the entire video (though I urge you to do so) be sure to watch the section starting around 3:30 (three minutes, thirty seconds) demonstrating the interrogation techniques to be used, including wired and wireless “lie detector” technology demonstrating whether or not you are giving truthful answers to such questions as “Are you attempting to smuggle an explosive device into the expo today?” and “Are you attempting to smuggle a recording device into the expo today?” and “Are you from the local area?” and “Do you plan to detonate an explosive at the expo today?” etc. 


Welcome to the New World Order.  And oh yeah, U.S. Constitution?  What U.S. Constitution?

Obama Voter Approval Rating Sinks to Lowest Level Ever; “Perilous Position”

November 24, 2010

President Obama has passed the Big 4-0 — going the wrong way.


Turns out voters were not simply satisfied to spank the Democrat and his party in the Nov. 2 midterm elections with historic losses in the House of Representatives.


Obama’s job approval rating as calculated by the Zogby Poll has now sunk to 39%, a new low for his 22-month presidency that began with so much hope and excitement and poll numbers up around 70. As recently as Sept. 20, his job approval was 49%.


A whopping 60% now disapprove of his job, up from 51% disapproval Sept. 20.


Obama now trails in hypothetical 2012 matchups against Republicans Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and the next Bush, Jeb.


And, oh, my! Lookee here! Obama has even fallen into a statistical tie with none other than Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor.


How embarrassing that is because other polls have shown a majority of Americans believe she is unqualified for the presidency. So it appears many have now decided, on second thought after a nearly two-year test drive, Obama looks that way too.


Obama began losing the support of independents in the summer of 2009, as he responded to polls showing voter concerns focused on the economy by staging 59 town hall meetings on healthcare. Independents were a crucial part of his coalition win in 2008 but have now dwindled to 39%.


Only 6% of Republicans, not surprisingly, approve of Obama’s job performance. But younger voters, also crucial in the ex-state senator’s convincing defeat of John McCain, now approve by only 42%.


Nearly 7 in 10 likely voters say the country is on the wrong track, rarely a good sign for incumbents.


But, Zogby notes, perhaps most ominous for the president is that he’s now losing support among his own party people. His approval plopped nearly 10% in just one week, from 78% down to 72% in Zogby’s latest read.


Obama, John Zogby writes, “is failing to please more than one-fourth of his own party’s voters. This is a perilous position for the President.

Obama Policies Force Another 700,000 Seniors to Switch Health Providers

November 21, 2010

Last year we heard it over and over, I’m talking of course about President Obama’s promise that if you like your plan you can keep it.


Well forget it. Today it was discovered that another 700,000 Seniors will have to change plans, because health insurers are shutting down certain types of plans because of  legislative changes and looming cuts to federal funding.


That’s on top of the announcement in August that three million seniors would have to get new providers.


Cigna Corp., Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, several Blue Cross Blue Shield plans and others aren’t renewing hundreds of Medicare Advantage plans, which are Medicare policies administered by private insurers. The moves will displace some 700,000 beneficiaries who must find new policies, according to Humana Inc., a large seller of Advantage plans.


For 2011, the Kaiser Family Foundation said there will be a 13% decline in the number of Medicare Advantage plans. 


The pullback is largely due to a 2008 law that required the plans to have networks of preferred doctors, with the idea that managed care could be less costly and aggressive marketing could be curbed.


Some providers of traditional fee-for-service policies decided to close the plans rather than invest in networks. But some insurers say the federal health-care overhaul, which includes $140 billion in cuts to reimbursements for Advantage plans over 10 years, is a factor as well.


Insurers are also saying as the market tightens up more plans will close and prices will go up.


“It is hard to imagine these cuts to Medicare Advantage and nothing is going to change,” said Michael McCallister, chief executive of Humana.


The firm closed or merged 31 fee-for-service plans for next year, but sees growth in its remaining business as it picks up seniors displaced when competing plans close.


Medicare Advantage is expected to bring in more than $51 billion in revenue for major health plans this year, according to a Goldman Sachs estimate. That revenue could drop to as low as $37 billion in the next few years as the cuts kick in, Goldman estimates, but insurers likely will find new ways to bring in business, and sales are expected to climb back to $51 billion by 2018.


Back in August we learned that a plan by Medicare to try to make it simpler for consumers to pick drug coverage could force 3 million seniors to switch plans next year whether they like it or not.


These seniors see their will see their prescription plan eliminated as part of a new effort by Medicare to eliminate duplicate plans that offer the similar coverage. These seniors would not lose coverage, but they probably will see changes in their premiums and copayments.

Now Even Newsweek is Proclaiming Obama “God” — Only It’s Shiva, the Hindu Goddess of Destruction

November 19, 2010

Yes, this is real. 

Newsweek is portraying Obama, on its cover, as the Hindu Goddess Shiva….

…replete with a bold headline saying “God of All Things.”

Now that’s a real humdinger.

Is it lost on them that Shiva is the Hindu Goddess of the Destruction of the Universe?

Or, considering the fact that Obama is holding a globe in one of his six arms in the cover photo, are they trying to tell us something?

Obama, Your Refusal to Protect Our Borders Has Led Us to This; Actors Steven Seagal, Lou Ferrigno Join Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Armed Immigration Posse…

November 18, 2010

“America’s toughest sheriff,” Phoenix’s Joe Arpaio, is creating an armed “Immigration Posse” to combat illegal immigration, and Hollywood actors Steven Seagal and Lou Ferrigno have signed up.


Fighting Justice Department accusations that his office discriminated against illegal immigrants during arrests, Sheriff Arpaio said the civilian posse of more than 50 members gives citizens a chance to fight the problem inundating their border state.


“Law enforcement budgets are being cut and agencies are losing personnel and yet the battle to stop illegal immigration must continue,” said the sheriff, who heads the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.


“Arizona is the busiest port of entry for people being smuggled in from Mexico, Latin and South America. So asking for the public’s help in this endeavor makes sense, especially given the success the posses have experienced over the years.”


Fifty-six new Immigration Posse members from various professions were sworn in by the sheriff Wednesday as “illegal immigration fighters.”


Mr. Seagal, who starred in such action movies as “Under Siege” and “Above the Law,” is a sworn deputy in New Orleans.


Mr. Ferrigno, who played the title role in the 1970s TV series “The Incredible Hulk,” works as a reserve deputy with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office.


Another new civilian volunteer is Peter Lupus, who starred in “Mission Impossible.”


“These guys are busy with their acting careers, so I don’t expect them to be here on duty very often,” Sheriff Arpaio said. “But they can be instrumental in heightening public awareness of the immigration issue and encouraging others to join the posse’s effort to help reduce the flow of illegal immigrants into our communities.”


The Justice Department lawsuit, filed in September in U.S. District Court in Phoenix, was the latest chapter in a bitter feud between Justice and Sheriff Arpaio, who is accused of failing to turn over documents sought since March 2009 that federal prosecutors say comply with its probe of purported discrimination, unconstitutional searches and seizures, and English-only policies in his jails that discriminate against those with limited English skills.


The sheriff has described the lawsuit as “harassment,” saying thousands of pages of documents have already been turned over by his office to federal prosecutors.


He said the lawsuit made it “abundantly clear that Arizona, including this sheriff, is Washington’s new whipping boy.”


Since the time Sheriff Arpaio took office in 1993, he has built up the volunteer posse to nearly 3,000 members, with 59 posses operating throughout Maricopa County.


He said the volunteer posses work thousands of hours and donate vehicles, planes and helicopters to the sheriff’s office as well as a variety of professional services, saving tax payers millions of dollars each year.


“People from all walks of life have contacted my office saying they want to help me in this fight in some way. This is how they can do that – by being members of a volunteer posse with the specific aim of fighting illegal immigration and lending their particular expertise to the fight,” the sheriff said.


Of the 56 Immigration Posse members, 33 are already qualified to carry weapons. They will work with deputies in searching for vehicles carrying illegal immigrants and the “safe houses,” where the people are housed before they are sent out of state. They also will help maintain crowd control during demonstrations against the sheriff’s immigration policies.

What Are You Going to Do About This, Obama? TSA Now Putting Hands Down Fliers’ Pants…

November 16, 2010

Now you know what Democrats mean by  the terms “liberal” and “progressive”…

But really, we all grew up watching movies about those evil Nazis from WWII Germany shouting “Ver are your papers!” at people trying to get through checkpoints.  We were told repeatedly that such behavior was wrong, invasive, oppressive, and anathema to the very concept of freedom. 

But did you ever think you’d live to see the day when your own government would be reaching down your pants to grope your private parts at airport checkpoints, telling you essentially that you signed away your Constitutional rights against unlawful search and seizure (and gave those uniformed troglodytes permission to molest you) when you purchased an airline ticket?

TSA Now Putting Hands Down Fliers’ Pants…

The TSA’s invasive new screening measures include officers literally putting their hands down people’s pants if they are wearing baggy clothing in a shocking new elevation of groping procedures that have stoked a nationwide revolt against privacy-busting airport security measures.

Forget John Tyner’s “don’t touch my junk” experience at the hands of TSA goons in San Diego recently, another victim of Big Sis was told by TSA officials that it was now policy to go even further when dealing with people wearing loose pants or shorts. Going through airport security this past weekend, radio host Owen JJ Stone, known as “OhDoctah,” related how he was told that the rules had been changed and was offered a private screening.

When he asked what the procedure entailed, the TSA agent responded, “I have to go in your waistband, I have to put my hand down your pants,” after which he did precisely that.

Stone chose to conduct the search in public in the fear that the TSA worker would be even more aggressive in a private room. “If you’re wearing sweat pants or baggy clothing, I was wearing sweat pants they’re not baggy, they’re sweat pants,” said Stone, adding that the agent pulled out his waistband before patting his backside and his crotch.

Even the TSA agent who put his hands down the man’s pants was embarrassed at what he had been told to do by his superiors, apologizing profusely to the victim. 

A 54-year-old Missouri City man experienced similar treatment when he was going through security at Fort Lauderdale Airport. Thomas Mollman was subject to a groping by a TSA officer that was tantamount to sexual molestation. “I was wearing shorts at the time – between the underwear, right on the skin, all the way around the back, all the way around my front, 360 degrees, touched inappropriately,” he said.

“This was an assault. This was no different than a sexual assault,” said KTRK Legal Analyst Joel Androphy.

The level of abuse appears to be getting worse on an almost daily basis. First TSA agents use the back of their hands, then they outright grope you with the front, and now they are being trained to put their hands down traveler’s pants. What’s next? Mandatory bodily probes?

Even as the resistance to airport oppression grows, Big Sis and the TSA are responding by making the pat down procedures more invasive. Napolitano has figuratively said to the American people ‘let them eat cake’ as she slaps them in the face.

Given the fact that the TSA’s own woeful background checks for their own employees allows rapists and pedophiles to get jobs as pat down agents, will you allow TSA workers to put their hands down the pants of your daughter or wife?

UPDATE: Owen JJ Stone appeared on The Alex Jones Show today to discuss the incident and how the TSA goon ‘touched his junk’ by specifically patting his backside and testicles while his hand was inside Stone’s pants – video of the interview coming soon.

Obama Set to Leave on ANOTHER Overseas Jaunt After Failure of Asian Trip

November 16, 2010

(Reuters) – If President Barack Obama is not yet convinced that his international star power has faded, his next round of transatlantic summitry should clear up any lingering doubts.


Coming off a marathon Asia trip where Obama often found himself rebuffed by fellow world leaders, he will head to Europe this week where the agenda will be clouded by a growing divide over economic strategy and a sense of neglect among traditional U.S. allies.


His challenge is to reassure European partners that, despite political weakness at home and embarrassing setbacks abroad, he remains committed to better cooperation on issues ranging from the war in Afghanistan to the fight against trade protectionism.


But it will not be easy for Obama, whose Democratic Party suffered heavy losses in this month’s congressional elections, to dispel the impression that his stature has been diminished on the world stage. He will attend back-to-back NATO and European Union summits in Lisbon on Friday and Saturday.


“The tricky thing for Obama is to show the Europeans not only that he’s still important to them but that they’re still important to the U.S.,” said Sally McNamara, a European affairs expert at the conservative Heritage Foundation in Washington.


Accustomed to being at the center of U.S. foreign policy, Europe may be feeling jilted.


Despite the European love affair with Obama when he was elected two years ago, he has let transatlantic ties slip down his priorities list while focusing on rising Asian powers like China and India and domestic concerns such as high unemployment and an anemic economy.


It will not be lost on his European hosts that Obama, who visited Europe six times in his first year, is dashing to Lisbon for little more than 24 hours on the ground after conducting a 10-day four-country tour of Asia.


The White House insists that Obama’s engagement with economically dynamic Asia will not come at the expense of America’s “enduring partnership” with less-vibrant Europe.
