Antics Means Millions For Obama!
A great example of a sitting president who has no scruples, no moral compass, and absolutely no regard for the dignity of the office of the presidency, is Barack Hussein Obama.
He exemplifies the anti-American, the greedy pandering politician, the viciousness of the political game, the mean-spirited nature of this administration, the ethics of a liar and con artist.
In the last few months, Obama said that he "was not born with a Silver Spoon in his mouth" - a clear attack on Mitt Romney.
Yet, what he did not say anything about attending one of the most expensive private schools in the state of Hawaii, having a Nanny, traveling, and later going on to attend three of the top Universities in the nation without ever holding a job - or working his way through school in anyway. That, my friends, is a Silver Spoon!
All Hail Obama The Warrior!
Lately he has trumpeted his decision to get Osama bin Laden, then has had the nerve to question if Mitt Romney would do so - as if there really is a question about that - knowing full well that there is no question that Romney would just as any president would do given the same opportunity.
In my days in the Marine Corps, we were taught Team Work - and a belief that "when you're that good, you don't have to brag about it."
Obama brags about getting bin Laden to the point that he completely omits the Navy SEALs, the pilots, those in the military involved in the operation, the CIA, those gathering the Intel that it took to find him and then take him out.
Dear God, there are times when I truly feel sorry for the bastard! It's as if he'll do anything, anything, for power and acclaim.
After listening to him take all of the credit for killing bin Laden, I realize that Obama will stoop as low as he needs to - to exploit any and all opportunities for fame, acclaim, and worship. Yes, I really believe that the size of his ego is only matched by the size of his arrogance. He wants to be hailed as a conqueror and hero.
Too bad, because he does not deserve such accolades.
"Rambama" The SEAL!
To further exploit the one-year anniversary of Bin Laden's death, Obama gave an interview to NBC in the Situation Room from the exact spot where he and others observed the raid.
Of course, current and former US Navy SEALs have joined together to voice their dissatisfaction in President Barack Obama for attempting to take credit for killing Osama bin Laden and using them and Special Forces members as "ammunition" for his re-election campaign.
"This whole process to get (bin Laden) started when George W. was standing on a pile of rubble at Ground Zero saying to the American people, 'the people who knocked these buildings down are going to hear from us.
"Fortunately, Obama was in a position to finish what George W. started," added Webb.
And Chris Kyle, the former SEAL credited with a record 160 confirmed killings, called the Obama ad "a cheap shot."
"He's trying to say that Romney wouldn't have made the same call? Anyone who is patriotic to this country would have made that exact call, Democrat or Republican,” Kyle told the Mail’s Toby Harnden. "Obama is taking more credit than he is due."
Montana State Rep. Ryan Zinke, a former Navy commander who spent 23 years as a SEAL and led a SEAL Team 6 assault unit, called Obama’s decision "a no-brainer".
"I applaud him for making it but I would not overly pat myself on the back for making the right call," said Zinke, a Republican from Whitefish. "Every president would have done the same.
Zinke slammed Obama for exploiting bin Laden’s death. "The president and his administration are positioning him as a war president using the SEALs as ammunition. It was predictable."
"But bin Laden was just a figurehead. The war on terror continues. Taking him out didn’t really change anything as far as the war on terror is concerned, and using it as a political attack is a cheap shot."
The Wall Street Journal claimed that by turning the targeted killing into an election issue, Obama risked becoming the most polarizing president since Richard Nixon.
"Voters aren't likely to believe that any Presidential candidate would fail to pursue the man who killed 3,000 Americans on 9/11," the Journal pointed out.
"The question all of this raises is—why? Why would an incumbent President feel the need to campaign like this?"
Fox News’ Chris Stirewalt said the decision to turn the anniversary of the terrorist’s killing into an election issue "mucked up what should have been one of the president’s best days of the campaign."
"The only thing required to benefit from association with the killing of the most hated man in the nation is to be magnanimous about the whole affair – smile broadly, downplay your own role with a wink and congratulate the brave men who did the job," said Stirewalt.
"Obama almost managed to do that, but his campaign couldn’t resist going negative."
The Obama White House marked the anniversary of bin Laden's death with a series of briefings and interviews designed to highlight Obama's decision that day.
Most likely they will have their media lackeys there to worship at Obama's feet the whole time. And yes, it's very unlikely for Obama to give anyone other than himself any sort of small mention regarding the operation to kill Bin Laden.
A pity really!
Yes, his antics like trying to steal the show regarding the killing of bin Laden are just more foolish moves these days. All to reap praise and adoration!
The Clooney fundraiser in Los Angeles' Studio City area was in the heart of celebrity gay marriage activism.
Let The Dollars Come!
The time for the pandering President is upon us, and he declared his support for same-sex marriage on cue - just in time to rake in Millions of Dollars from wealthy gay Democrats!
In Seattle, where the gay population is huge, he was attending two fundraisers. There Obama witnessed the support first hand as his motorcade passed a woman holding an infant and a sign that said: "Thank you! Mr. President for standing up for my Mommy's!"
I'm sure a tear came to his eye when he thought of two lesbians tying the knot. I can't help but wonder if he will teach his children that it was Adam and Eve - and not Adam and Steve in the Bible?
Maybe, just maybe, one day Obama will grow wise enough to understand that the majority of Americans out there - who are not wealthy Liberal donors - find gay marriage akin to someone wanting to marry their goat - it's just something not right!
Big Cheers Mean Big Money For Obama
He drew big cheers from supporters at Seattle's historic Paramount Theater when he said his vision for a better America applies to everyone, "no matter what you look like, no matter what your last name, no matter who you love."
Without referring directly to marriage, Obama expanded on the theme of same-sex equality.
"We are moving forward to a country where every American is treated with dignity and with respect and here in Washington you'll have the chance to make your voice heard on the issue of making sure that everybody, regardless of sexual orientation, is treated fairly," Obama said. "You'll have a chance to weigh in on this. We are a nation that treats people fairly."
After hearing what Obama had to say to the gay folks in Seattle, I can't help but wonder if he'd take that reasoning and apply it to Polygamist or say gays wanting to "marry" young boys?
And yes, it's true that there is a Gay movement trying to exploit children and are working to get the age of sexual consent lowered to 8 years old. Yes, 8 years old!
I'm sure if the donation is big enough, Obama would be for it.
Washington state has passed a law approving same-sex marriage, but opponents are gathering signatures for a ballot initiative to overturn the law and declare marriage as union of man and woman.
California itself illustrates the crosscurrents of gay marriage. Californians have twice voted to ban gay marriage, most recently in 2008. The most recent ban, known as Proposition 8, is being fought in the courts.
Then There's North Carolina!
Once a bright spot for President Barack Obama, North Carolina is now more like a political migraine less than four months before Democrats open their Party's National Convention in Charlotte.
Labor unions, a core Democratic constituency, are up in arms. Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue isn't running for re-election; Democrats say she was likely to lose. The state Democratic Party is in disarray over an explosive sexual harassment scandal. Unemployment in the state remains persistently high.
And yes, now North Carolina voters recently approved amending the state constitution to define marriage as being a union between a man and a women. Because of the wording, North Carolina voters won't face challenges to what is esentially a ban on gay marriage.
But wait, Obama and the Democrats have a solution to North Carolina's troubles - and public decision to make a statement on gay marriage.
They want to punish North Carolina by taking their Party's National Convention out of Charlotte and relocate it to a place that will bow to Obama's Social Agenda.
I spent a lot of time working in North Carolina doing work for the Navy, and I can tell folks first hand that they are a wonderfully independent people.
Most likely, though they need the business in Charlotte, they will probably tell Obama and the Democrats to "Go to Hell or Hollywood" where the place is full of homosexuals.
In Hollywood, homosexuals are very wealthy, very very wealthy, and they love Obama.
Scruples or not, his pandering to gays is bringing him in Millions of dollars!
Vice President Joe Biden Still Blaming Bush
Taking a cue from Obama's knack of blaming everything on George W. Bush, recently vice president Joe Biden blamed all of the Obama Administration’s rocky negotiations with Iran on Bush.
He went on to say that it was only after President Obama took office and made "good faith" efforts toward dealing with Iran that the world realized the Iran is the problem.
"By going the extra diplomatic mile, presenting Iran with a clear choice, we demonstrated to the region and the world that Iran is the problem, not the United States," Biden said at the Rabbinical Assembly's annual convention in Atlanta.
"When we took office, let me remind you, there was virtually no international pressure on Iran," Biden continued.
And talk about blaming Bush, he went on to blame America saying, "We were the problem, we were diplomatically isolated in the world, in the region, in Europe. We were neither fully respected by our friends nor feared by our opponents. Today it is starkly, starkly different.”
Biden said Obama’s efforts also have created world-wide support for the U.S.'s recent get-tough policies in the face of what appears to be Iran's expanding nuclear program, including Obama's executive orders punishing those who make financial deals with that country.
“That's why China, that's why Russia, that's why Europe, that's why the rest of the world have joined us in these sanctions, and the president deserves the credit,” the vice president said, painting with a broad brush what actually has been a rather contentious dialogue between the U.S. and those other countries.
Such Obama administration criticism of the president's predecessor is not new, and the Obama re-election campaign has begun to look for ways to tout the president’s foreign policy.
Biden's comment on the U.S. being diplomatically isolated during the Bush years was in reference to the 2003 invasion of Iraq. President G. W. Bush made the decision without United Nations’ approval but with the backing of Britain and, initially, the support of a majority of Americans, according to polls at the time.
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's campaign called Biden's comments "reckless" and criticized the Obama administration for “all too often” trying to first blame America, apparently suggesting that Biden's criticisms of Bush were really aimed at the country as a whole.
"Biden’s reckless statement today blaming America for – of all things – the progress of Iran’s nuclear weapons program, has reached a new low," said Romney policy director Lanhee Chen. “The problem is not America. It is the ayatollahs who oppress their people.”
Matt Brooks, executive director of the Republican Jewish Coalition, said Biden comments were "outrageous."
"Iran was the problem then and it is the problem now," he said. "It's foolishly misguided for the vice president to blame anyone or any country other than Iran."
Biden also said Iran is not monolithic and bet that President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad would be out of power within two years.
Biden's mouth gets him in more trouble than just about any other politician in Washington. It's no wonder that he's usually apologizing for saying something stupid. He is.
Crazy Terrorist Attorney Wants Women At 9/11 Hearing To All Wear Muslim Clothing
The defense attorney who wore a traditional Islamic outfit called a "hijab" during the arraignment of the Sept. 11 Terrorists is defending her courtroom appeal - and wants other women in the court room to wear what she calls "appropriate" clothing to the proceedings - out of respect for her client's Muslim beliefs.
She's must be nuts!
Cheryl Bormann, counsel for defendant Walid bin Attash, attended the arraignment Saturday dressed in a hijab, apparently because her client insisted on it.
She further requested that the court order all of other women in court to follow her example so that the defendants do not "have to avert their eyes for fear of committing a sin under their faith."
These sons-of-bitches killed thousands of innocent people. Someone should clue them in - the sins that they have committed go far beyond that sort of bullshit of having to avert their eyes. These are mass murderers on a scale that only the Muslim faith can justify as being OK.
At a press conference at Guantanamo Bay, Bormann said she dresses in a hijab at "all times" when she meets with her client "out of respect" for his beliefs.
Asked why she requested other women do the same, Bormann said, "When you're on trial for your life, you need to be focused."
They didn't give a damn about how Americans dressed when they slaughtered them. They were plenty focused on killing the innocent that day almost 11 years ago.
Bormann, who says she is not Muslim, claimed the issue came up several years ago, when a paralegal wore a "very short skirts" and it became a distraction for the defendants. She said, "somebody" was also dressed "in a way that was not in keeping with my client's religious beliefs."
"If because of someone's religious beliefs, they can't focus when somebody in the courtroom is dressed in a particular way, I feel it is incumbent upon myself as a counsel to point that out and ask for some consideration from the prosecution," she said. "Suffice to say it was distracting to members of the accused."
Cheryl Bormann is the perfect example of way people have no respect for lawyers. She and her terrorists clients are in an American Military court - they can go to hell!
Arrest Warrant issued for suspect in 1998 prison guard slaying
In April, it was reported that an ongoing cold-case investigation into the 1998 shooting death of a female prison guard near the 91 Freeway in Anaheim led to an arrest warrant for a fourth suspect.
Charges were filed in February against three other men, including the woman's husband. He was accused of orchestrating the murder of Elizabeth Wheat Begaren so that he could collect on a $1 Million Life Insurance Policy.
The Orange County District Attorney's Office in February filed special-circumstances murder charges against Nuzzio Begaren, 51, and reputed gang members Jose Louis Sandoval, 36, and Rafael Garcia Miranda, 45.
Yes, this sounds a lot like something on TV's Cold Case - but it is the real deal.
Frankly, with all of the budget cuts that most departments are experiencing these days, I'm very happy that the Cold Case unit in Anaheim is tracking down those who need hanging.
And in this case, since Elizabeth Wheat Begaren's husband put together the plot to murder Elizabeth for insurance money - the death penalty would be too good for the bastard.
Am I holding too much in?
|Former LAPD Detective Lazarus|
It was reported that a former Los Angeles police detective was sentenced to 27 years to life in prison for murdering the wife of her former lover 26 years ago.
Stephanie Lazarus, 52, was found guilty in March of killing Sherri Rasmussen, a nurse who was bludgeoned and shot to death in the condo she shared with her husband of three months, John Ruetten.
Superior Court Judge Robert Perry gave Lazarus a term of 25 years to life for first-degree murder and an additional two years for personal use of a firearm. He said Lazarus would be credited with 1,608 days, or nearly 4½ years, for good behavior and time already served.
Her defense attorney said an appeal has been filed.
Outside court, Lazarus' brother and mother said their hearts go out to Rasmussen's family, but they still support Lazarus and believe she did not get a fair trial.
"There was never a presumption of innocence," said Steve Lazarus. "The media got to listen to DNA and guilt for 2 1/2 years before Stephanie had her trial."
During the trial, prosecutors focused on the romantic relationship between Lazarus and Ruetten after they graduated from college. They claim Lazarus was consumed with jealousy when Ruetten decided to marry Rasmussen.
The case hinged on DNA from a bite mark prosecutors say was left by Lazarus on Rasmussen's arm.
Defense attorneys argued the DNA evidence was corrupted over the years and could not be considered reliable.
Lazarus was not a suspect in 1986 because detectives then believed two robbers who had attacked another woman in the area were to blame for Rasmussen's death. The case file, however, did mention Lazarus because of her relationship with Ruetten.
No suspects were found and the case went cold until May 2009, when undercover officers followed Lazarus and obtained a sample of her saliva to compare with DNA left at the original crime scene, police Chief Charlie Beck said at the time.
Prosecutors suggested Lazarus knew to avoid leaving other evidence such as fingerprints. The idea that saliva from a bite mark could be her undoing was inconceivable in 1986 when DNA wasn't used as a forensic tool.
Prosecutors asked the judge for the maximum sentence.
"Her efforts to mislead the initial homicide investigators permitted her to avoid justice for this crime for more than 20 years," prosecutors wrote in court documents. "It is bleakly ironic that the defendant's long-running deception now benefits her with respect to sentencing."
Defense attorney Mark Overland had pointed out, however, that his client's personnel file is replete with commendations throughout her 26-year career and did not contain a single allegation of improper conduct or excessive force.
Overland added there was no evidence presented at trial that showed Lazarus knew where Ruetten and Rasmussen lived or that she knew their phone number.
"How Ms. Lazarus could have known that Ms. Rasmussen decided on the morning of the killing not to go to work and stay home has never been explained," Overland wrote in court documents. "Additionally, after the killing, Ms. Lazarus never initiated any contact with Ruetten."
Lazarus rose in the ranks of the Los Angeles Police Department, becoming a detective in charge of art forgeries and thefts. Her husband attended most of the trial, along with other family members.
Not surprisingly, even though it was the LAPD's hard work that found the evidence to convict Lazarus, the Rasmussen family has filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against the LAPD and the City of Los Angeles.
I guess suing the City and the LAPD, and getting money from them, will make everything better for the family? I don't get that at all!
To me, they should be thanking the Detectives who stayed on it. Maybe even take them to dinner as way of thanking them. Certainly not sue them!
Developer plans 200-foot-tall Cross in Missouri
As everyone can read in the news, public symbols of Christianity are under attack around the nation.
But that's not the case in Branson, Missouri, where county officials have approved a 200-foot Cross that will rival American icons like the Statue of Liberty and the Golden Gate Bridge, according to its developer.
Kerry Brown said the "God-given vision" of the Branson Cross came to his father Dean two decades ago after he bought land atop Bear Mountain near the intersections of U.S. highways 160 and 65 in Branson - famous for its country music.
"It started as a vision with a 7-foot-tall cross just so people would have a place to go and meditate with the Lord," Brown told FoxNews.com. "As time went on, additional portions of the vision came to him and ultimately it was to build the largest cross that anyone has ever seen."
Brown hopes to have the $5 million project completed by the end of 2013. The cross will feature a 100-foot crossbeam and twin elevators to the 17-story-tall horizontal bar. The project is being funded by donations, and though Brown declined to say how much he's taken in, a website associated with the effort said some $410,000 has been raised so far. Much of the expense will go to preparing the mountaintop site.
"It’s going to be a family-friendly, free admission venue where people can have an encounter with Jesus Christ." - Kerry Brown, developer
"My goal is to have much of the land prepared this year," he said. "Getting construction materials up the hill is going to need a 45 degree road to get to the top."
After receiving zoning approval from the Taney County Planning and Zoning Commission four years ago, Brown said fundraising for the project began in earnest in December.
"We’ve been working up to this for a while," he said. "But at this point, we still have quite a ways to go. Our dollar amount doesn’t come near what we need at this point."
Brown, a former attorney now living in Branson, is hoping the estimated eight million people who travel in and out of Branson each year will propel the cross into an international tourist destination.
"I know St. Louis has the Gateway Arch and San Francisco has the Golden Gate Bridge, and those are all fantastic monuments, but they’re all secular monuments," he said.
"This will be the first monument to the spirit of man and there’s a reason why it’s being built in the heartland of the nation. It’s absolutely in the right place at the right time and it’s going to have ten times the spirituality as any one of those monuments."
Unlike other places, like say California, very little opposition to the project has been received by Brown - who said he hopes to make the Branson Cross free to all visitors.
"It’s going to be a family-friendly, free admission venue where people can have an encounter with Jesus Christ,” he said. “But we’re getting ready to move forward on this pretty quickly here and I’m sure at some point somebody will come and try to step in the way."
Elsewhere in the nation, like in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, public displays of Christianity are under heavy fire.
A national Atheist organization is demanding that that city remove a cross from a 91-year-old memorial honoring hometown soldiers who paid the ultimate sacrifice for their county.
Although the memorial has stood in the parking lot of the Woonsocket fire station for decades with no complaints, the Wisconsin-based Freedom from Religion Foundation began last month calling for it to be stripped of the cross that sits atop it, claiming it violates the First Amendment's freedom of religion clause.
The Atheist group also wants the Woonsocket Fire Department to remove "The Firefighter's Prayer" and a picture of an angel from its website.
Mojave Cross still under fire!
Also last month, a federal judge approved a land swap that may end an 11-year legal battle over the right to display a cross honoring Veteran of Foreign Wars veterans in a remote part of the Mojave Desert in Barstow, California.
U.S. District Judge Robert Timlin in California on April 23 signed an order allowing the so-called Mojave Cross to return to Sunrise Rock.
The National Park Service, under terms of the settlement, will transfer the title for the one-acre parcel in exchange for five acres of donated land.
The cross was erected in 1934 as a tribute to World War I veterans.
In 2001, the American Civil Liberties Union sued, alleging religious symbols shouldn’t be displayed on public land.
The First Amendment Is Not Being Read For What It Says!
Obviously this is all just my opinion, but I really believe that there are people out there that are using other works to decide Constitutional Law.
People ought to read the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States and see if they can find this so-called phrase "separation of church and state."
Where does it say "Separation of church and state"? Maybe they can point out where it states that a cross cannot be put on land that belongs to the public? The First Amendment does not say that!
The First Amendment reads: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
How more clear can it be "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof"
It says that the Government cannot establish a national religion of some sort like say the Church of England where all of the English were forced to belong to that religion.
That in effect would be a religion that would be forced on people. They were afraid of that, but America has proven herself to be a free place for all to worship as they please.
We do not force anyone to belong to a religion, but at the same time we should not force people to accept atheism either. It is the exact same thing as say the Communism Doctrine that says religion is the problem and forces its people to be Atheist by forbidding them from worshiping any religion.
I wanted to take a shot to see if you're reading this. I hope you are, and I hope you're having a great time in Homer, Alaska.
By the way, if you bump into Sarah - tell her there's many out here that love her!
