An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
It occurred to me, if you aren’t on Facebook, you might not have seen this Glenn Beck video. It has been ‘shared’ quite a number of times, but without being a GBTV subscriber, or a FB zombie, you may have missed exactly who it is that the fool in chief wants to arm, with OUR weapons and money. Remember when we helped out Osama bin Laden against the Russians in Afghanistan? Yeah…that worked out real well. THIS stupidity will end the same way…there is NO doubt in my mind at all.
Thanks to Wayne, aka NewsNinja2012, for poking me in the eye.

The Administration: Scarier Than You Could Imagine
by Lloyd Marcus
If a tree falls in the woods and no one hears it, does it make a sound? If the Obama administration breaks the law at will, lies to the American people, uses every government agency at its disposal to punish its conservative/Republican enemies and no one does anything about it, does the administration make a sound? Yes it does — resulting in devastating consequences for the American people.
Despite a trifecta of scandals, Obama and company continue to stonewall, lie, or refuse to answer questions — in essence, giving Congress and the American people the finger. Pundits are shocked and taken aback by the unprecedented arrogance of the Obama administration.
Such pundits are a bit late coming to the dance, as we in the Tea Party have been well aware for years of the lawlessness and arrogance of this bunch of thugs from Chicago. Have these surprised pundits forgotten Obama’s unprecedented overreaches into the private sector — nationalizing General Motors, bullying banks, ignoring the ruling of federal judges, trashing the Constitution, and more?
Trust ‘em? I can barely stomach them! This administration has done nothing but lie to the American people. I don’t care how much new paint you slap on that rotting house, it’s still rotting, and will eventually fall down around your ears!
But I want to point out something very important, that many, no matter the media source, or leanings, fail to remember. The issues with this administration NOT start with Benghazi. No, the problem with this administration started in its very first year! And it went downhill from there. Americans have been murdered on OUR soil too, and I lay the blame solely on Obama and his minions of evil.
No, this immigration fiasco will NOT distract us. I have covered this topic many times, so I don’t think there is any doubt where I stand. Know this MR Obama…. we will remember every single incident! And we remember ALL your lies!
Do You Trust This Administration?

The Obama Administration has a few problems. From Benghazi to the IRS to the phone records of journalists and everyday Americans, it’s not difficult to call up a scandal with investigations pending in Washington.
So immigration reform makes for a nice distraction.
I can tell ya, mine isn’t, for a number of reason, so believe me when I tell ya…this is the LAST thing I wanted to see this morning!
Ok, now I can understand the importance of keeping track of foreigners, especially those from Muslim countries, even those who have become citizens, on student visas, and in some cases, those Muslims who where born here. Let’s add those who were born here and converted to the ideology of the murder cult.
Sadly, once again, the Brits have scooped a story that SHOULD have been broken by U.S. media. But alas, the lame stream refuses to investigate the goings on of this administration. You can read the eighteen page order here. (Yes, I read it. Far reaching is an understatement!) Honestly, I believe the clown in chief could strangle a baby, in full view of the press, and they’d make excuses for him! A bit extreme? Well, four Americans were murdered, and they blew it off. Move along folks…nothing to see here!
If you missed the honorable representative from the state of Oklahoma, Jim Bridenstine’s short speech on the House floor, go watch it here!! The man sums it all up on just one minute and 12 seconds!
This has not been a good week for this POTUS, to put it mildly. Shoot, when ya get right down to it, 2013 has pretty much sucked for the dude. People are calling for his impeachment, but as usual, it’s all racist. Pfft! No one gives a flip about the color of his skin. Folks have got to remember, he’s half and half. People don’t like the other half of him either! If he was full white, there wouldn’t be a problem. I honestly believe that people are afraid of his skin tone. Why? Haven’t we gotten past that? Apparently not. Obama has made the problem worse. Oh, they haven’t brought back the Democrat’s Jim Crow laws….yet. But when they do, it will be the lighter skinned folks who are targeted. He has set back race relations 50 years, pretty much spitting in the eye of Dr Martin Luther King, Jr.
Time for a reality check! He is NOT who he claims to be!!
The National Security Agency’s monitoring of Americans includes customer records from the three major phone networks as well as emails and Web searches, and the agency also has cataloged credit-card transactions, said people familiar with the agency’s activities.
Read the rest here. Kind of long, but quite informative
A piece of advice….use cash for all your important self preservation items!
….unless you’ve been under a rock! Which, naturally, includes low/no information voters. And NO, this is NOT Bush’s fault!
By the way, if you don’t have Verizon, you shouldn’t get too excited, or smug. Verizon just happens to be the only one mentioned. There’s NO doubt in my mind that EVERY cell carrier is involved is this blatant 4th Amendment violation!
This a copy and past from PolitiChicks. I hope the ladies over there don’t mind. I felt it necessary to reiterate just how bad this administration truly is for our nation.
- She hates Israel, passionately. (For sources and links, simply Google or Bing-search her name…)
- She is soon to be our next U.N. Ambassador
- She is the wife of Cass Sunstein, Obama’s favorite regulatory czar
- She used to work George Soros’ ‘think tank’ ICG (International Crisis Group)
- She was re-hired in 2009 as Obama’s Special Assistant to President Barack Obama and Senior Director of Multilateral Affairs on the Staff of the National Security Council.
- She is the “mind” behind President Obama’s current policy of Responsibility to Protect, which drove him to the “kinetic military action” [war] in Libya
- She said the following statement, regarding the ‘interrogation’ she was given by Obama, who was trying to convince her to work for him: “He really pushed me. Barack is incredibly empirical and non-ideological. He’s very aware of the tectonic plate shifts in the global order – the rise of China, the resurgence of Russia, the loss of influence by the US — and how those affect your ability to get what you want, on anything from global warming to getting out of Iraq to stopping genocide. I thought, if you’re interested in helping change the world in your small way, grandiose as that sounds, even if I was just answering his phones, I would have more impact than writing these big books that I put out ever half decade or so.”
- She gave the following response to a 2002 interview with Harry Kreisler, Dir. of the Institute for International Studies at Berkeley: “Without addressing the Palestine – Israel problem, let’s say you were an advisor to the President of the United States, how would you respond to current events there? Would you advise him to put a structure in place to monitor that situation, at least if one party or another [starts] looking like they might be moving toward genocide? Alienate the American Jewish community, and indeed all Americans, such as evangelical Christians, who support the state of Israel, because Israeli leaders are destroying the lives of their own people.”
- And in the same interview she said the United States should “pour billions of dollars of the taxpayers money into the new state of Palestine.”
- And despite calling the U.S. involvement in Iraq ‘the height of arrogance and foolishness,’ she considers staging an American ground invasion of Israel and the Palestinian territories not only viable but necessary. “I actually think in the Palestine/Israel situation, there’s an abundance of information. What we don’t need is some kind of early warning mechanism there, what we need is a willingness to put something on the line in helping the situation. Putting something on the line might mean alienating a domestic constituency of tremendous political and financial import..more..sacrificing—or investing, I think, more than sacrificing—billions of dollars, not in serving Israel’s military, but actually investing in the new state of Palestine, in investing the billions of dollars it would probably take, also, to support what will have to be a mammoth protection force, not of the old Rwanda kind, but a meaningful military presence. Because it seems to me at this stage..you have to go in as if you’re serious, you have to put something on the line.”
And yes…it is still morning here in Podunk! I over slept? Reckon I was tired…had a bad day yesterday, I’m allowed!
So, I look at Drudge…and BAM…. the Schutzstaffel is alive and well in the 21st century, with 21st technology!
Obama administration collecting phone records of millions daily...

WHAT THE HELL???? So, it’s not just the media they are attacking, it’s every single person in the country? Not foreigners, mind you, but citizens. ALL citizens. Like me! I have Verizon. I know many people who do. It works quite well in areas where others don’t.
Does the WH believe we’re all against them? Well, if we are, there’s a good reason, but that doesn’t mean EVERYONE is plotting against them….except through the ballot box! I’ve no doubt if the Obama administration wasn’t so corrupt, and has so many to do their bidding, there would not be an CURRENT Obama administration invading our lives right now!
Wanna snoop my laptop? Go right ahead….but ASK ME FIRST! It’s called the 4th Amendment! And I hope you get whatever has been plaguing me since I bought the damn thing! But don’t get too excited….there’s no porn, so phone sex, and I have very little in my checking account!
You gonna come in my home and bug my dishwasher? I hope you freakin’ drown! What are you going to do if a person doesn’t have a dishwasher? Or microwave? Or even a stove? There are some people who don’t you know. I’m thinking they just might have it right!
If you didn’t read 1984 on your own, or in school, do it now! And I mean NOW! (Kindle version, paperback, hardcover) I suppose you could watch the movie, but I’ve always preferred theater of the mind. Movies have to cut so much out so it fits within a certain time period. Best to read the book….always…then see the movie version.
I don’t like the country I’ve been waking up to every morning for the past few years. Oh, I love my country…just not what it has become under this administration. It’s ugly. The people who are doing this are tools of evil, and must be fought at every turn!
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects,
against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated,
and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause,
supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched,
and the persons or things to be seized.
Glenn takes a look at just a few of the many lies that have come from this administration:
“The Poison Dwarf”
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
Does anyone else find this highly amusing, in a demented cackling sort of way? Holder wants to have a little chat with the media, who, by the way, has been lapping up this administration’s caca de toro, of which Holder is a member, since BEFORE day one. They couldn’t be bothered to cover REAL news for the last 4 1/2 years, until it affected them, personally? Oh sure, I understand the ‘off the record’ nonsense. Shoot, as best I can tell, the lame stream hasn’t even been on the same page as the rest of the country, much less worrying about being on, or off, the record.
I dunno…maybe this will be their wake up call? Perhaps they will finally notice Obama and Co. are NOT their friends? Naw. They’ll continue to play suck up while the country is sent even farther down into the cesspool. They don’t seem to be bright enough to be REAL journalists! If they were, then they might have noticed that Brian Terry, the murdered Border agent, and a number of other human beings are still dead thanks to “Fast & Furious”, OR, those four Americans murdered in Benghazi have not made a come back, and their messiah has done nothing but lie, OR, that the IRS, under their messiah’s reign have been targeting particular groups and individual citizens, but not OTHER particular groups or individual citizens, OR….. *fill in the blank*
Nope! The media has failed miserably. So, yes, I find it highly amusing, in my sick, sarcastic mind. Is it any wonder that the “Messiah Suckup National Broadcasting System” is in the tank? People are fed up. Well, those who actually bother to pay attention are fed up, at any rate!
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!!!
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.
Apparently, if you love this country, and want her to succeed, you are an enemy of the “state”. If you believe that people are capable of supporting their families, instead of relying on the “state”, you are their enemy. If you believe that the U.S. Constitution should be upheld at every level, you are their enemy. If you speak out against the out of control spending, you are the enemy. Basically, if you say anything against this administration’s policies, you are definitely the enemy, and a racist as well.
WE knew this in depth scrutiny was happening. THEY called us paranoid, and conspiracy theorists. Well, I think we’ve been vindicated by the IRS’s admission to this practice. Obama said ‘IF’ this happened? Apparently, someone keeps him completely out of the loop and fails to keep him informed of current, and quite serious, events. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such an ill informed, or misinformed, bunch in my life.
I happened to hear part of Sean Hannity’s show yesterday on my way back the doctor in Jackson. There was a caller who described almost the same sort of scrutiny at the airport, coming home from Jamaica, as I had received. Luckily, I wasn’t taken into the little room with the two female security agents, but the rest? Yep, excessive groping. She found out that the reason for the extra scrutiny, from the agents themselves, our government had put her on a list for such actions. It got me to wondering… Was that why I had so many security agents groping me? Not just in Jamaica, but when we arrived back in Memphis, I had to be groped again, just to get out of the airport. Even the Mr is wondering, because I too have spoken out against this administration, was I targeted? I have no group, but the lady caller did… A ministry for the troops with the word “patriot” in the name.
So, it’s not just the IRS that is targeting patriotic citizens. We are all under serious scrutiny in various ways. Yes, we must redouble our efforts if we want to, not save the Republic, but return our country to a Republic!
The IRS Wants to Know If You’re a “Patriot”
Matthew Spalding, Ph.D. – The Foundry
Across this great land, patriotic Americans are behaving subversively.
Uncle Sam is not amused.
As leaders of tea party groups have been painfully aware for years, the Internal Revenue Service has given “special” attention to conservative groups.
The Benghazi Talking Points
And how they were changed to obscure the truth
Even as the White House strove last week to move beyond questions about the Benghazi attacks of Tuesday, September 11, 2012, fresh evidence emerged that senior Obama administration officials knowingly misled the country about what had happened in the days following the assaults. The Weekly Standard has obtained a timeline briefed by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence detailing the heavy substantive revisions made to the CIA’s talking points, just six weeks before the 2012 presidential election, and additional information about why the changes were made and by whom.
As intelligence officials pieced together the puzzle of events unfolding in Libya, they concluded even before the assaults had ended that al Qaeda-linked terrorists were involved. Senior administration officials, however, sought to obscure the emerging picture and downplay the significance of attacks that killed a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans. The frantic process that produced the changes to the talking points took place over a 24-hour period just one day before Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, made her now-famous appearances on the Sunday television talk shows. The discussions involved senior officials from the State Department, the National Security Council, the CIA, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and the White House.
The exchange of emails is laid out in a 43-page report from the chairmen of five committees in the House of Representatives. Although the investigation was conducted by Republicans, leading some reporters and commentators to dismiss it, the report quotes directly from emails between top administration and intelligence officials, and it includes footnotes indicating the times the messages were sent. In some cases, the report did not provide the names of the senders, but The Weekly Standard has confirmed the identities of the authors of two critical emails—one indicating the main reason for the changes and the other announcing that the talking points would receive their final substantive rewrite at a meeting of top administration officials on Saturday, September 15.
