An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
It isn’t bad enough this poser in chief is riddled with scandals, does he have to insult our Marines, as well?
Apparently, yes….yes, he does. The guy has NO respect for our military, no matter the branch. Oh, he can say he honors them, and that hootchie dressin’ mama he’s married to can lay claims as well, but time and time again, they have both proven they have NONE, whatsoever!
Dude…hold your own freakin’ umbrella, or get one of your lackeys to do it, but for the love of pete, do not DEMAND a Marine to break protocol, and hold it for you! Oh…that’s right…you don’t know how they work, do you!
MCO P1020.34F of the Marine Corps Uniform Regulations chapter 3
3035. UMBRELLAS (Female Marines). Female Marines may carry an all-black, plain standard or collapsible umbrella at their option during inclement weather with the service and dress uniforms. It will be carried in the left hand so that the hand salute can be properly rendered. Umbrellas may not be used/carried in formation nor will they be carried with the utility uniform. (emphasis mine)
Note there is NO provision for a male Marine to carry an umbrella under ANY circumstances!
Incompetent. Clueless. And very, VERY, dangerous!
I am trying to continue to respect the office, but I can NOT respect him!
Well, ain’t that a pip! Pussified males are more likely to be left wing, Obama voters. Tell me something I didn’t know. Heh.
It looks like Italy has a problem with criminal immigrants, and one group wants to put a stop to it. I can understand their angst. Whether they are illegal invaders, or not, those entering that country want to change it to the country they left. Rather like what is happening here. Of course, here, if you are an illegal, you can get away with all sorts of violent crimes, and be set free to roam the streets to offend again.
Wow. It’s hard to believe, sitting in my comfy recliner, in my centrally heated and a/c’d home, that there are still cultures in this world that believe the killing of children will remove ‘bad luck’.
O…..M…..G!! Seriously?? They burned Barbie on a cross?
So, it’s NOT the Freemasons, it’s the Skull & Bones. Got it!
Now, THAT is just plain WRONG! The whole damn place should be bulldozed!
The three informants, Deborah Edge, Gigi Aguliar, and Krystal Rodriguez, have come forward to tell of their horrific experiences working for abortionist Douglas Karpen, at one of three of his Texas abortion clinics, the Aaron Women’s Clinic in Houston. A fourth informant has co-operated with Operation Rescue, filing an affidavit about her experiences, but at this time remains anonymous.
As shocking as their stories are, these women did more than just talk; they brought forward evidence of illegal late-term abortions in the form of photos taken on their cell phones at the Karpen’s clinic on Schumacher Lane in Houston.
Yes, there are pictures. If you are so called ‘pro-choice’, which is nothing more than a polite way of saying you believe it’s ok to kill babies, take a good look at those pictures, and tell me that’s the CHOICE you have made! No, that’s NOT your body, so it’s not your CHOICE to make! That little body belongs to a separate human being. YOU, on the other hand, are not human at all, if this is what you ‘choose’!! You are evil! Spawn of Satan!
FYI, just because Bush appointed someone, does NOT make them right leaning.
We’ve Seen the Effect of “Amnesty” Before
Ed Meese – The Foundry
Experts can’t always predict exactly how public policy will affect the nation, despite our best efforts. But when it comes to immigration policy, we have tried many of the types of reforms advocated by today’s Gang of Eight—so we should consider the effects these reforms had in the past.
In the mid-’80s, many Members of Congress advocated amnesty for long-settled illegal immigrants. President Reagan considered it reasonable to adjust the status of what was then a relatively small population, and as his attorney general, I supported his decision.
The path to citizenship was not automatic. Immigrants had to pay application fees, learn to speak English, understand American civics, pass a medical exam, and register for military selective service. Those with convictions for a felony or three misdemeanors were ineligible.
This should sound familiar, as it’s quite close to the path and provisions set forth by the Gang of Eight.
Today they call it a “roadmap to citizenship.” Ronald Reagan called it “amnesty.” And he was right.
The 1986 reform did not solve our immigration problem—in fact, the population of illegal immigrants has nearly quadrupled since that “comprehensive” bill.
Why didn’t it work? Well, one reason is that everything else the 1986 bill promised—from border security to law enforcement—was to come later. It never did. Only amnesty prevailed, and that encouraged more illegal immigration.
Today, we have many of the same needs we did then. We need to work on better securing our border. We need to modernize our legal immigration system, including effective temporary worker programs. And we need strong enforcement of the laws we already have, including those that enforce immigration policies in the workplace.
The Gang of Eight is making promises now. “Border security” is a big promise. But their proposal spends money and grants amnesty without the guarantee that this promise will be kept.
We are having much the same debate and being offered much the same deal in exchange for promises largely dependent on the will of future Congresses and Presidents.
Instead, we should learn from our mistakes.
America welcomes more immigrants than any other country. As Ronald Reagan said:
In this free land a person can realize his dreams—going as far as talent and drive can carry him. In return America asks each of us to do our best, to work hard, to respect the law, to cherish human rights, and to strive for the common good. The immigrants who have so enriched America include people from every race, creed, and ethnic background. Yet all have been drawn here by shared values and a deep love of freedom. Most brought with them few material goods. But with their hearts and minds and toil they have contributed mightily to the building of this great Nation and endowed us with the riches of their achievements. Their spirit continues to nourish our own love of freedom and opportunity.
But in keeping open that door of opportunity, we also must uphold the rule of law and enhance a fair immigration process, as Reagan said, to “humanely regain control of our borders and thereby preserve the value of one of the most sacred possessions of our people: American citizenship.”

President Obama announced Wednesday that acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller would resign in the wake of the agency scandal in which conservative groups were targeted — though Miller was apparently set to step down anyway.
An official close to Miller told Fox News, shortly after Obama’s brief announcement, that the IRS chief was “set to resign the position of acting commission as of early June.” He was planning to leave the IRS entirely a “couple of months later, regardless of the current controversy,” the source said.
These details were not mentioned by the president as he announced Wednesday evening Miller was resigning. Obama spoke following a meeting with Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew and other top department officials in which they reviewed a highly critical inspector general’s report on the practice. The report concluded poor management allowed agents to improperly target Tea Party and other groups for more than 18 months, starting in 2010.
If you watched that so called press conference, and didn’t laugh your hinder off, you just might be a “progressive”! The phony outrage was hilarious! Not only did he fail to mention the guy had already planned on leaving, he also didn’t mention the fact that the majority of these events occurred under his predecessor’s watch! And you can’t tell me Obama didn’t know about this! The dude has to be the most ill informed POTUS ever to step foot in the White House.
Oh, and it’s WAY past time to repeal the 16th Amendment!!!
I’m gonna say…. BOTH!
The White House on Wednesday released 94 pages of emails between top administration and intelligence officials who helped shape the talking points about the attacks in Benghazi, Libya, that the CIA would provide to policymakers in both the legislative and executive branches.
The documents, first reported by THE WEEKLY STANDARD in articles here and here, directly contradict claims by White House press secretary Jay Carney and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that the revisions of those talking points were driven by the intelligence community and show heavy input from top Obama administration officials, particularly those at the State Department.
The emails provide further detail about the rewriting of the talking points during a 24-hour period from midday September 14 to midday September 15. As THE WEEKLY STANDARD previously reported, a briefing from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence shows that the big changes came in three waves – internally at the CIA, after email feedback from top administration officials, and during or after a meeting of high-ranking intelligence and national security officials the following morning.
Read the rest here.
Anyone with half a brain knew that the ‘talking points’ coming out of the White House and the State Department was pure male bovine excrement.
…Uncovers the Ugly Side of Income Taxes
It’s well known how I feel about Obamacare, so I really can’t add anything to what Mr DeMint has said, except this whole fiasco caused by Obama and his minions is nothing but one HUGE lie!
Obamacare Is About Power
Jim DeMint – The Foundry
Members of the House of Representatives are scheduled to vote Thursday to repeal all of Obamacare. Given that the House voted to repeal the law last year, some commentators and observers have questioned the need for another repeal vote.
However, the scandals coming to light over the last week perfectly make the case for why Congress must eradicate the law from the statute books.
On Friday, the Internal Revenue Service finally disclosed that it had spent years targeting tea party and other conservative groups, delaying their applications for non-profit status and giving those applications additional scrutiny — solely because of those groups’ political beliefs.
Also on Friday, The Washington Post revealed that Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius personally asked health industry groups to contribute to Enroll America, a pro-Obamacare front group working to “educate” the public about the law’s supposed benefits.
Why did it take so long for this information to go viral?
