The Debt Crisis - Treason of the First Degree or Incredible Bull!

I really wanted to focus on the horrendous story that is still developing as to Project Gunrunner and the ensuing cover-up being orchestrated by the lying sons-of-bitches in the DOJ, ATF and it appears the White House itself as there is now proof of emails, etc. sent to key White house personal. As such, I still have the feeling we have not only criminal activity but in fact a cover-up by Obama on down which in my view should already have led to impeachment proceedings! Unfortunately, the so called debt crisis is giving our friends in the MSM propaganda industry a good excuse to ignore it! I will come back to this in a later post. Let it suffice for the time being that the administration in this case as most others is full of bull!!

Now onto the debt crisis. Be warned, I'm beyond mad and am writing as such! First and foremost, let's state some fact! Democrats have not even introduced a budget in over 850 days! Moron Alert! They had an unstoppable majority but they actually announced they didn't feel they should do budget stuff going into the last election so as not to hurt themselves! The Democratic majority refused to do their jobs! They did however in the first two years of this Commie administration pass completely insane programs such as the failed stimulus bill, Obamacare ans so on, not even bothering in some cases to read the bill and certainly not giving a rat's ass about the consequences of their actions or where the funds would be coming from! As such, this administration alone is adding over 1.2 trillion dollars a year to our debt!

As evidenced over the last few days, there are also some assholes known as Republicans who also will and have vote for anything that might lead the electorate to believe the incredible lies and false promises put forward by these folks who are in my mind 100 times worse than street prostitutes!

Having given a super brief outlook of where I'm coming from, let's look at the last week or so. Obama: "I have a plan". Bullshit (thanks to watching Airplane the other night, I will be a bit crass. I only eish I could have found a gliph of the seat belt signs from the movie) ! Where is oh mighty leader? Watching the news conference yesterday, "Lick Your Shoes Carney" wouldn't even answer a question about it! Why, because you have no plan!

The House has passed two bills, both flawed as they not only allow the raising of the debt ceiling, but do not cut spending. Of course, we have Comrade Reid who refuses to even allow debate on those bills, much less a vote! Nope, instead we get more incredible bullshit! "This is the worse piece of legislation in history" OR how about "I will allow a vote om my plan" You know, the plan he just made up out of the blue to at least make it look like the Senate, sorry bunch of bastards that they are (after listening to Mcain, Brown and of course Snow and Lisa I don't feel bad lumping them in with the rest of the bullshit artists)just so he can feed us even more crap of the Republicans are blocking everything" variety.

Moron Alert! The stench from the Senate, bad as it is pales compared to the White House! These aren't mere lies coming from the Senate leaders. This is on the verge of treason as the majority of Senators are more than willing to bankrupt the country rather than face up to not only their responsibilities but in fact the truth! The truth is they are spineless gutless wimps whose sole aim in life is to continue their lies and deceit all in the name of power! Disgust from my end? No sirree Bob! I'm beyond that. Hate comes to mind! Hate for the fact that our elected officials of both parties and the morons who keep voting them in are so willing to sacrifice this great country for their own power lust! That is My belief. If it doesn't stop, we are through as the country we once knew to be the greatest ever!

So let's look at a few more things here. As I noted, the house passed two bills, neither of which were going anywhere as it was felt by the leftist scum that it would tie their hands as they continue raping the citizenry until they control every last thought and cent. Moron Alert! Neither bill cut spending! Why is it these bastards keep telling us they are cutting spending? Along with the debt ceiling bullshit (bullshit in that why do we even call it a ceiling when over the years both parties ignore it and raise it)there is the fact that not one bill, rather passed or not as well as any of the so call "plans" (that's bullshit for what is actually more of the same) in fact increase the debt! And not by a small sum!

Every thing I've seen indicates the debt going up another 750 billion a year! That's another 7.5 trillion in debt over 10 years! Where is the cut in spending? Our friends in Washington will tell us they cut 300 billion a year! Really, then why are we going deeper in debt? Moron alert! If you spend more than you take in, you go deeper into debt! As has been in the past, instead of responsible actions taken by our elected leaders. we in fact get more incredible bullshit thrown at us!

Now of course let's not forget about the President! I've watched every thing in the last few weeks I could. What exactly did the President and his propaganda ministers actually do or say? One could say in fact NOTHING worth listening too! We've had at least three instances of the President openly lying to the American people. We've had the usual scare the seniors and class warfare as to Social Security checks, etc. We've seen the Treasury Secretary and his "the world is coming to an end" bullshit. And let's not forget not only the race bait garbage but also the fact that Tea Partiers or conservatives in general are in fact "terrorists" if the oppose the Soviet Style confiscation of and misspending our money.

That would be bad enough if it wasn't so pathetic. The MSM said Obama is the only adult in the house. Yet we saw Obama waste an entire news conference blaming Bush as usual, and in fact pointing out what he opposes! Not once did I hear him say what he stands for! Not once! He asked for compromise then turned around and told the opposition to kiss his royal ass! We saw his "call my bluff" line which when in fact it was called, he once again ran away and hid! He reached out to the people! Normally Presidents do this to inform the people. In this case, he wanted the people to cover his sorry ass! As usual, he lied!

I would love to be able to talk about this with a modicum of respect for our elected officials and the offices they hold. I wish there were more than just a few out there who would stand on their principles and do what's right! Compromise? I wish there were more brave people out there who would say enough is enough! As Gene Krantz once said, Failure IS Not An Option!" Yet we have the majority of elected officials who are in fact willing to accept just that. Abject Failure! And why? Because the do not have the intestinal fortitude to bite the bullet and swallow the medicine as needs, something we all need to do and now!

I know I might be kind of meandering on this, but I hope one get's my point! I'm not including news clips, etc. today. I am in fact ranting and raving as loudly as I can.
The lies have to stop. The inaction by our elected officials have to stop! The spending of more than we take in has to stop!Someone has to lead! As it has been proven beyond a doubt that the President is nothing but a follower and of failed principles at that, some brave soul in D.C has to lead! Some brave media outlet has got to throw away their leftist elitist agenda and report the truth!

President Obama is nothing but a bullshit artist as are most politicians. That is fact! Real leaders are rare! We sure as hell are not seeing anything even remotely resmbling leadership. All we see is "Incredible Bullshit"! When will it stop?

This country is already bankrupt monetarily as far as the government. We the People, as it has been pointed by the President and his moronic sidekicks, are too stupid to understand what is going on with the budget and the debt. That was in his own and others words! We don't get it? Those of us who have to who have gone bankrupt, those of us who work 3 jobs just to keep our heads above water, those of us who would end up in jail if we did what this President and legislative bunch is doing, those of us who just want our children and grandchildren to have a chance of possibly making it, we don't understand! Bullshit! Bullshit! Bullshit!

I'll tell you miserable bastards in D.C. what I don't understand! I don't understand why you look down on us as the scum of the earth! I don't understand why you refuse to adhere to the very principles that made this country great! Most of all, I don't understand why you cannot stand up, show some spine and do the job we elected you to do. I don't understand why lies and bullshit mean more to you than your constituents! I don't understand why you are willing to destroy this country! And I sure don't understand why so many of you claim to be Patriots when in fact in your inaction towards something as basic as the debt and the budget you are in fact committing treason of the worst kind! You are allowing our country to be destroyed. And that my friends is the most INCREDIBLE BULLSHIT OF ALL!

The Charade Known As The Budget Talks or "Where Were You When Country Went Belly Up?"

We are in the process of witnessing what could well be the sorriest moment ever seen as to our government! From the little boy who stalked out when in effect “his bluff was in fact called”, to the scumbag Reid who deemed a plan that was in writing as the worse piece of legislation ever seen in D.C., to scumbags on both sides who are willing to kick the can down the road once again to ensure their own phony baloney positions, the smell emanating from the halls of power are overwhelmingly sour!

Before I get into the clips and other comments, one really has to wonder about a President whose only worry seems to be a deal that “that will take us through the next election! Even the President has been quoted as “wanting this to extend beyond the election”!

From the Detroit Free Press:

“Obama is insisting that the debt ceiling extension be large enough to ensure that the issue does not arise again until after the 2012 elections...”

Well Hell’s Bells! At least we now know what’s important! Certainly not the fact that in anything these clowns are even remotely discussing, there isn’t one iota of thought as to actually cutting spending to the point of incoming revenues! No Sir1 Everything from not only the leftist scum, but also way to many on the right indicates a desire to continue spending at a frenetic pace far and beyond revenue stream. In other words, we still would have to borrow!

A few posts ago, I cited the clown’s statement that he was ready to roll up his sleeves and focus on the economy. Well, that was I though one of the top comic moments of his administration! God knows what he was concentrating on before that! But of course, President Bozo still had some more humor in his arsenal! Now, he is a leader! Now he is the “only adult in the room! Now as the media wants us to believe, he is the only person with a plan! The examples below from various sources of course belie that inane notion to be sure! Leadership from this moron!? Yeah right. The only thing he’s leading is this country’s march to the garbage heap of history!
So let’s start with our so called President’s statements as he whines about the nasty Republicans who refuse to pay him lip service!

“I've been left at the altar now a couple of times,” the steely-eyed president said. “And I think that, you know, one of the questions that the Republican Party's going to have to ask itself is, can they say 'yes' to anything?” (Oh My! His little feelings are hurt because the patsies didn’t roll over?)

Obama said that he had put forward a package that would significantly cut deficits and debt in a way that does not raise individual tax rates. It is compatible, an exasperated Obama said, with the no-tax pledge that “a whole bunch of these folks signed on to, because we were mindful that they had boxed themselves in.” (What package? What plan? Except for the phony budget that not one Democrat could vote for, the man and his party have not offered jack shit in over 800 days! MORON ALERT! It has been stated more than once that the Democratic party has no intention of passing any budget. They cry about their opposition blocking it! Yet they when they had an untouchable majority refused to enact a budget. If one looks back they then proudly stated their open intention to demonize the right for their failure to act as they are now!)

The challenge, he said, “has to do with the seeming inability, particularly in the House of Representatives, to arrive at any kind of position that compromises any of their ideological preferences – none.” (Compromise my ass! The definition for the word in our benevolent dictator’s world is “Republicans, go F… yourselves! It’s my way only! Don’t you dare question me! This from a man who apparently doesn’t understand the first thing about the definition of the word budget!)

The Democrats had done their part and agreed to compromises that were difficult to swallow, he said. Now it’s the Republicans’ turn. (see above)

“If you want to be a leader, then you got to lead,” he concluded, then turned and walked briskly from the room. ( Choking with laughter at this one, albeit it a laugh of scorn! If this man is a leader, I’d hate to see or for that matter want to know any of his followers!)

I apologize because I forgot to note the site I lifted the next thing from. It is a cool statement though!

“Now the President is outraged because the GOP House leadership called his bluff and ended discussions with him because they deemed him an obstruction to any real solution to the debt crisis.
He has been deemed a lame duck president. And he is angry now because he is being treated as such.
His foreign policy strategy has been described as “leading from behind.” Well, that’s his domestic policy strategy as well. Why should he be surprised that he’s been left behind in the negotiations when he’s been leading from behind on this debt crisis?”

We now turn to our friend John Boehner who at least seems to have grown a bit of spine!

“Boehner sent a letter to his Republican colleagues explaining his decision to pull out of talks for a “grand bargain.”

Folks – The White House is misleading reporters tonight by claiming that new revenue in the framework that was discussed would have been generated by letting the current tax rates expire. That is simply false. Under the framework, a CEILING was offered by the White House that would generate $800 billion in new revenue over ten years. This would be done through comprehensive tax reform that would clear out deductions, credits, and loopholes in the system – and spur economic growth.

After the gang of six plan came out, the White House moved the goal posts and insisted on $400 billion more in higher taxes – a 50% increase in revenue – and wanted that to be the FLOOR instead of the ceiling. The President acknowledged this in his remarks tonight. “Letting tax cuts expire” was never part of the tax reform agreed to.

Summary of the White House ‘walk backs’ during discussions of the ‘framework.’
• The White House agreed to a revenue total that would set a ceiling of about $800 billion in new revenue over ten years that could be generated through economic growth and efficiencies in our tax system (not tax hikes).

• After the ‘Gang of Six’ plan was released, and in the wake the reaction from Hill Democrats, they moved the goal posts and insisted on $400 billion more in higher taxes – a 50% increase – and wanted that to the floor instead of the ceiling.
• At the same time, they struck principles of tax reform that were already agreed to, including
No a protection against tax hikes on small businesses
No and a guarantee that there were would be only 3 tax rates and highest one would be below 35%

• There was an agreement to change the way government calculates inflation that would significantly extend Social Security’s solvency
• The White House moved off of a previously agreed to solvency target, suggesting a weaker level with 25% less in savings”

Now I’m not going to pretend to know exactly what was said or not between the Speaker and the President! Anyone who knows me will realize I don’t trust any of the entrenched scum in D.C. and certainly not the MSM reporting on this from the President’s pocket. Having said that, if one looks closely at Mr. Boehner’s stuff above, we as usual see the usual “it’s my way” B.S. from Comrade Obama! No surprise here!

Senator Rubio of Florida put into words exactly what I feel as to the President’s so called “I’ll compromise stance (that’s the President’s “ I’ll feed these clowns whatever bullshit I have to to make it look like they’re the culprits in this” stance). Please note: There cannot be anything called a plan if the CBO cannot score it. There is nothing on paper, there is no plan! Just lies and distortions from the President and his lackeys Reid and Pelosi!

Rubio responded by speaking truth to power:

"I have watched the President give press conferences, I have watched the President give speeches, but I have yet to see a plan from the President. And with all due respect to my colleagues in the other party here in the Senate, I haven't seen a plan from them either. They are the majority party. They control this chamber. They control the Senate. And I haven't seen a plan from them.

"A moment ago we heard this talk about -- well we have to compromise. Well it's really hard to compromise when the other side doesn't have a plan. What do you compromise on? Where is your plan? You can't compromise if only one person is offering plans. There is only one plan that has been voted on by any House to deal with this issue, and it's the one we're on right now, Cut, Cap and Balance. I would submit that if you don't like Cut, Cap and Balance, if you don't think we need to cut spending, cap spending and balance our budget, then show us your alternative.

"Or maybe you do believe we need to cut, cap and balance, but you don't like the way this bill cuts spending, caps spending and balances spending. Fine. Offer your version of Cut, Cap and Balance. Let's proceed to this bill. Let's get on this bill that the House has passed and if you don't like it, change it. You've got the votes here to do it. If you've got a better, bring this bill up and amend it. Put your ideas on it.

"But how could you ask for compromise? How could you ask the House-- how could you scold Republicans in the House for refusing to compromise if you don't have a plan of your own? How can you compromise if you don't have any ideas of your own? It's not a fair thing to say. And so I would urge the leadership of this chamber and the President of the United States to offer their ideas on paper. Put your ideas on paper and offer them so we can begin to work on this concept of compromise that you've offered. Because you can't compromise and you can't negotiate with people that will not offer a plan.

"Let's get -- why don't you vote to proceed to cut, cap and balance? Proceed to this bill so we could have a debate on this bill and so you could offer your ideas on this bill. This is the perfect opportunity to do it. Let's stop negotiating in the media and through press conferences and start doing it here on this floor, which is what people sent us here to do."

From Newsbusters, I’ve seen this great stuff from Mark Steyn:

“As I said, these are structural problems. In theory, they can be fixed. But, when you look at the nature of them, you’ve got to wonder whether they ever will be this side of societal collapse. Blockbuster went bankrupt because it was wedded to a 1980s technology and distribution system. In government, being merely a quarter-century obsolete would be a major achievement. The ruling party in Washington is wedded to the principle that an 80-year-old social program is inviolable: That’s like Blockbuster insisting in 2011 that there’s no problem with its business model for rentals of silent movies with live orchestral accompaniment. To be sure, there are some problems parking the musicians’ bus in residential streets, but nothing that can’t be worked out.”

“Obama ... claimed to have a $4 trillion deficit-reduction plan. The court eunuchs of the press corps were impressed, and went off to file pieces hailing the president as "the grown-up in the room." There is, in fact, no plan. No plan at all. No plan whatsoever, either for a deficit reduction of $4 trillion or $4.73. As is the way in Washington, merely announcing that he had a plan absolved him of the need to have one. So the president's staff got out the extra-wide teleprompter and wrote a really large number on it, and simply by reading out the really large number the president was deemed to have produced a serious blueprint for trillions of dollars in savings. For his next trick, he'll walk out on to the stage of Carnegie Hall, announce that he's going to play Haydn's Cello Concerto No 2, and, even though there's no cello in sight, and Obama immediately climbs back in his golf cart to head for the links, music critics will hail it as one of the most moving performances they've ever heard.”

“The only "plan" Barack Obama has put on paper is his February budget. Were there trillions and trillions of savings in that? Er, no. It increased spending and doubled the federal debt.”

“How about Harry Reid, the Senate Majority Leader? Has he got a plan? No.”

“... It seems reasonable to conclude from the planlessness and budgetlessness of the Obama/Reid Democrats that their only plan is to carry on spending without limit. Otherwise, someone somewhere would surely have written something down on a piece of paper by now. But no, apparently the Department of Writing Down Plans is the only federal expense the president is willing to cut. ... the ruling party of the Brokest Nation in History has no spending plan other than to plan to spend even more. ...

... The domestic media coverage of this story has been almost laughably fraudulent: To the court eunuchs, a failure to raise the debt ceiling by a couple of trillion would signal to the world that American government was embarrassingly dysfunctional. In reality, raising the debt ceiling by a couple of trillion without any spending cuts would confirm to the world that American government is terminally dysfunctional.”

This folks is sheer brilliance! Straight and to the point it is the perfect illustration of what is wrong not only with our Commie leftist leaders, but D.C. and government in general! As I’ve said many times, the blame is there for all to share. It goes back 5 or 6 decades! The balloon is at the bursting point and the renegades in D.C. don’t seem to care. Insatiable lust for spending our money is all that matters!

Finally, let me really bust the Left’s balls (although I’m not sure of that as to our President) with some wonderful thoughts from one of their worst nightmares, the great Sarah Palin! (I couldn’t resist throwing in the boogey man here)

“After listening to the President’s press conference today, let’s keep in mind the following:

This is the same president who proposed an absurdly irresponsible budget that would increase our debt by trillions of dollars, and whose party failed to even put forward a budget in over 800 days! This is the same president who is pushing our country to the brink because of his reckless spending on things like the nearly trillion dollar “stimulus” boondoggle. This is the same president who ignored his own debt commission’s recommendations and demonized the voices of fiscal sanity who proposed responsible plans to reform our entitlement programs and rein in our dangerous debt trajectory. This is the same president who wanted to push through an increase in the debt ceiling that didn’t include any cuts in government spending! This is the same president who wants to slam Americans with tax hikes to cover his reckless spending, but has threatened to veto a bill proposing a balanced budget amendment. This is the same president who hasn’t put forward a responsible plan himself, but has rejected reasonable proposals that would tackle our debt. This is the same president who still refuses to understand that the American electorate rejected his big government agenda last November. As I said in Madison, Wisconsin, at the Tax Day Tea Party rally, “We don’t want it. We can’t afford it. And we are unwilling to pay for it.”

Finally, let me once again express my disdain for the atrocity that is President Obama!

The man is the epitome of evil in any sense when it comes to not only his hatred of his country and its ideals, but also his complete lust for power. As stated in the Detroit Free Press, ‘Obama is insisting that the debt ceiling extension be large enough to ensure that the issue does not arise again until after the 2012 elections…” one definitely gets the impression that his only concern is keeping his position long enough to finish delivering us to his Leftist Soviet Style handlers! And make no mistake about this! The man is a hard left Socialist and a wanna be dictator!

Every action he takes, every word he, his wife and his cohorts utter, every obstruction he and his lackeys put out there be it the economy, his “I’m, above the law” attitude (let’s not forget the impeachable offense now being orchestrated by Bozo and his A.G. as to Project Gun Runner), every openly blatant lie to the electorate and every cave in to the Radical Islamic fundamentalists in supporting his open hatred for Israel and in my eyes the Jewish race in general combined with his complete disregard for our basic principles just reinforces the perception of his Socialist, dictatorship style way of governing. Mix that with an ineptness that makes Jimmy Carter look like a saint and you have the recipe for the disaster that is now facing us.

Let’s also not forget so many of the brain dead electorate who not only refused to do their homework on this idiot, but in fact still support him! Hell, the majority of Jews here in the states will would supposedly vote for him again, someone who is open in his hostility towards them! And let’s not forget the likes of Hanoi Jane, Comrades Harry and Nancy and the rest of the entrenched political scum of both parties who are more than willing to bury this great country for their own power lust! And even as I write this, millions of dollars are being funneled to his campaign from “big business and lefty millionaires! I really wonder if when God was handing out brains if these people weren’t of in the north forty or something!

There is a lot of blame to spread here! This man’s purpose in life is to destroy this country as we know it. He expressed this in his books, his associations with radicals of any ilk and most of all in almost every action he has taken in his so called leadership roles points to this one sad conclusion. It is there for all to see. As such, he is in the greatest sense destroying our economy purposely so as to achieve the Soviet Style Socialist status he feels is the way to go! Again, his words actions ad associations provide more than enough proof of my statement! Why we even pay lip service to this abomination of a so called leader is beyond my comprehension!

Project Gunrunner: Coverup and Lies

As upset as I am about the deficit garbage, I’m even more pissed off as to the Project Gunrunner case that is unfolding now. For starters, we have what appears to be a completely moronic operation that went extremely bad! We then add to the mix the fact that the ATF which ran the operation had to have had the sanction of at least the DOJ and really also the President.

Of course, Attorney General Eric “The law doesn’t pertain to me” Holder denied any knowledge of the alleged gun running program as did President “how dare you insinuate I should be responsible for anything” Obama! No surprise here. But, something strange happened. A U.S. border agent was killed by one of the guns sold to Mexican Drug Cartel scum! And an even bigger surprise! CBS News actually investigated it, I’m sure much to the chagrin of the I’m above the law” President and AG. The results of the investigation by CBS have led to a Congressional investigation. And what have our wonderful officials done? Stonewall. Lie! Everything but own up to the fact that they have the blood of a decent man on their hands!

This from the same people who refused to go after the Black Panther thugs in Philly, in effect another cover up! They denied any knowledge and yet Holder apparently knew about it in 2009!

1,000’s of people have been killed, many by the guns these idiots let go over the border right after our lying leader ranted about the fact that most weapons were being purchased here and shipped to Mexico, another fabrication from Mr. Bignose.

Below are various items I’ve found all over the net and news:

From Skookum at flopping Aces:

“Attorney General Eric Holder admitted and boasted about operation “Gun Runner” on April 2, 2009 to Mexican officials in Cuernavaca, Mexico.

Last week, our administration launched a major new effort to break the backs of the cartels. My department is committing 100 new ATF personnel to the Southwest border in the next 100 days to supplement our ongoing Project Gunrunner, DEA is adding 16 new positions on the border, as well as mobile enforcement teams, and the FBI is creating a new intelligence group focusing on kidnapping and extortion. “

From Curt at Flopping Aces:

“In a blockbuster development in the Operation Fast & Furious gun-running scandal, Acting ATF Director Kenneth Melson secretly testified before House and Senate investigators on July 4 with his own personal lawyer present, former United States Attorney Richard Cullen, without the knowledge of the ATF or the Department of Justice.

This morning, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa and Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Charles Grassley released a copy of a letter they sent to Attorney General Eric Holder on July 5 about Melson’s testimony. Melson’s revelations raise even more serious issues not only about the operation itself, but about apparent attempts by the Justice Department to mislead Congress on the details of the operation.

The transcript of this interview has not been released of course but the letter from Issa and Grassley is pretty startling itself.

…His interview had originally been scheduled through the Justice Department to occur on July 13 in the presence of DOJ and ATF counsel. As you know, however, under our agreement Department witnesses who choose to attend a voluntary interview with their own lawyer are free to exercise that right rather than participate with counsel representing the Department’s interests.

After being made aware of that provision of our agreement, Acting Director Melson chose to exercise that right and appeared with his own lawyer. We are disappointed that no one had previously informed him of that provision of the agreement. Instead, Justice Department officials sought to limit and control his communications with Congress.

No evidence of cover up….yet.

But there are two twists to this story that should ring some alarm bells.
The first one, DOJ officials failed to tell Melson he could testify with his own lawyer instead of department lawyers. That is curious.

The second twist?

He was about to be ousted from his position when he tried to tell the DOJ that the ATF operation was in fact FUBAR’d

Contrary to the Justice Department’s denials, according to Melson, ATF agents specifically witnessed transfers of weapons from straw purchasers to third parties without taking any further action. Melson claimed that it was not until the public disclosure of the operation that he personally reviewed the “hundreds of documents” related to the case. He said he became “sick to his stomach” when he learned the full story. Even more shocking is that some of the “gun trafficking ‘higher-ups’ that the ATF sought to identify were already known to other agencies and may even have been paid as informants” by agencies such as the FBI and the DEA.

Melson provided detailed information and documents to the Office of the Deputy Attorney General at the Justice Department. But that information was not given to Congress by then-Acting Deputy Attorney General James Cole. In fact, “Melson was not allowed to communicate to Congress” and “Justice Department officials directed [ATF’s senior leadership] not to respond and took full control of replying to briefing and document requests from Congress.” According to the letter Issa and Grassley sent to Holder, it was “two days after [Melson] told [Cole] about serious issues involving lack of information sharing” that the Wall Street Journal suddenly reported that Melson was about to be ousted by the Obama administration.”

“Guns were found at the scene of a high profile kidnapping and murder in Mexico involved in what has been described as a government operation gone terribly wrong. This is the latest revelation in the investigation of Operation Fast and Furious. The murder of Border Agent Brian Terry, allegedly committed with these guns, has brought scrutiny to the operation.

William La Jeunesse confirms that two of the guns sold to the Mexican cartels under the secret U.S. government program were used in the kidnapping and murder of Mario Gonzales Rodriguez, a lawyer and brother to a prominent Mexican official.”

“For an additional amount for ‘State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance’, $40,000,000, for competitive grants to provide assistance and equipment to local law enforcement along the Southern border and in High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas to combat criminal narcotics activity stemming from the Southern border, of which $10,000,000 shall be transferred to ‘Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Salaries and Expenses’ for the ATF Project Gunrunner.

Notice that’s $40,000,000 for Southern border enforcement, $10,000,000 of which specifically for Project Gunrunner. What does $10 million pay for here?”

From Standing With Arizona on You Tube:

“The scope of Eric Holder's disastrous 'Fast and Furious" ATF operation just keeps expanding. Now a single traffic stop in Phoenix has revealed 43 automatic weapons with serial numbers traceable to the the ATF scandal - taken from 4 illegal aliens arrested in the stop. How many AK-47s has this Administration put in the hands of gangs throughout the U.S. How many children will die in drive-bys using weapons Holder GAVE to criminals? And with the ATF Director now saying the DoJ obstructing the investigation, the House GOP must not stop until all responsible are rotting in jail. And what did Obama know and when did he know it?”

“Meanwhile Thursday, Mexican police released a videotaped interview of Jesus Enrique Rejon Aguilar, in which the recently captured No. 3 leader of the Los Zetas drug cartel said “all the weapons” the Zetas use were “bought in the United States” and that “even the American government itself was selling the weapons.”

“Hume: This is a real scandal. And once again we have the classic question “what did the Attorney General, for example, know and when did he know it.” This Obama Justice Department reminds me of nothing so much as the Nixon Justice Department. You have the scent of high level knowledge, of serious wrongdoing, and you have the smell of cover-up and I think the stench of cover-up on this gunrunning operation is very strong indeed.”

“Virginia O’Brien, Special Agent in Charge at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Tampa Field Division, ran a gun-running investigation that was walking guns to Honduras using the techniques and tactics identical to Fast and Furious, it was reported to these correspondents this evening via private correspondence from a proven credible source.”

“Are high-profile suspects in Mexican drug cartels also paid informants for U.S. federal investigators? If so, could a brewing scandal in Washington implicate more U.S. agencies in the ongoing drug-related violence in Mexico?

“Kenneth Melson, the embattled chief of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), made the earth-shaking revelation in testimony early last week, The Times reports. Melson reportedly told congressional leaders that Mexican cartel suspects tracked by his agents in a controversial gun-tracing program were also operating as paid informants for the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and the FBI.”

Folks, this is a major breakdown! Not only do we have a badly run operation which resulted in murder of the most heinous kind, but even worse we have a cover up that appears to go straight to the Attorney General and the President! The stonewalling and cover up we are now seeing combined with the lies are in my mind criminal acts by Mr. Holder and the President. The great Alan West put it best below!

“Appearing on Nashville radio host Steve Gill’s show last week, West said Obama would be “complicit” with what he sees as Justice Department attempts to slow down and avoid a congressional investigation into Operation Fast and Furious and Project Gunrunner if he didn’t push his attorney general to resign. “The president needs to realize that Eric Holder needs to be removed from the Department of Justice,” West said after detailing why he thinks Holder should appear before an investigative committee to testify about how the DOJ has handled its response to the Operation Fast and Furious investigation. “Or else I believe president Obama is complicit and he is in approval of the actions of his Attorney General.”

Mr. West is correct but it has to go further than that! What is going on as to this is as I said criminal! In my mind, the actions of the AG along with the lawless jerk in the White House in fact constitutes an impeachable offense! People died because of this operation and in turn people are lying! Testimony has been given that ATF and others were told to stonewall and dodge!

I have ranted more than once about President Scumball, but this is the absolute bottom of the barrel! Of course, the deficit B.S. is putting a blanket over this story, but it must be made public. The electorate needs to know this President is a law breaking piece of crap! And thanks to him and his out of touch administration and DOJ, innocent people have been killed. This President as well as his selected officials disgust me! They have taken this country to the bottom of the barrel both respect wise and honor wise. Does anybody care?

The Budget/Deficit Charade or As I Like To Call It "What LEadership?

There are two issues, both of which are beyond disgusting as to this President to say the least. One is Project Gunrunner , the idiotic plan by the ATF that was sanctioned by the DOJ and thus also the President which resulted in the death of a U.S. Border agent as well as God knows how many Mexicans! This as all now know is being covered up by this lawless administration and I will discuss it in a later post today.

Number two and easily one of the most insidious things that has happened to our country in its history is the current budget/debt debacle! Here we have a President who thinks the only way is his way, truly believes he must keep spending more than there is to spend and clearly does not have the good of the country as his first concern. The lies and hypocrisy from this Commie clown are bad enough, but the fact that there are scum politicians on both sides of the aisle that actually want go along with this disaster in the making is far and beyond my comprehension to be sure. Of course, maybe it’s the fact that according Comrade Obama , I and for that matter all of the electorate are too Damn Stupid to understand the idea of budgets and deficit spending! After all, he made that very clear in his own asinine words!
“So… the the American people are misinformed if not incapable of absorbing matters beyond the narrow, personal sphere. It’s the ‘What’s the Matter with Kansas?’ answer. You don’t know what is good for you. If you knew, you’d agree with me.”

“Let me distinguish between professional politicians and the public at large. You know, the public is not paying close attention to the ins and outs of how a Treasury auction goes. They shouldn’t. They’re worrying about their family, they’re worrying about their jobs. They’re worrying about their neighborhood. They have got a lot of other things on their plate. We’re paid to worry about it.”

I’ve ranted in the past as to the sheer disdain this moron has for the electorate in general. He went on to say that this is a job for “professional politicians” and the public should let them do their work and in effect keep their opinions to themselves. There’s a calming thought for us all! Let the idiots who have destroyed almost everything we hold dear continue on their merry way. “We the People” are too busy or dumb to know any better. As much as I hate to say it, there is a bit of truth in that. The electorate as I have said in the past keeps putting its collective heads up their asses and votes for the lying scum that now infests the great halls in D.C.

One wishes they could find something good in what’s going on now, but instead we get more incredible B.S. as below!

“Mr. Obama pledged that he was "ready to roll up his sleeves" and get to work on the economy that he's presided over for 2.5 years.”

MORON ALERT! What the hell has he been doing for the last two years? Now that his policies have basically bankrupt the nation, he wants to get serious? What exactly is serious to this idiot? “Spend more non-existent money?” Phony cuts that don’t even take effect for years? Same old crap as before because that is exactly what he is pushing in these phony budget talks that are being held so as to give him ammo to rake the opposition over the coals along with his pawns, the MSM! Speaking of the charade known as the budget talks, we have this:

“He became very agitated, said ‘Ronald Reagan wouldn’t sit here. You either have to compromise on the dollar figure or the grand bargain,’” Cantor said. “He said, ‘Don’t call my bluff. I’m going to the American people on this.’”
"I've reached my limit. This may bring my presidency down, but I will not yield on this," Obama said, according to a Republican aide.”

Or this:

The Washington Posts’ Jennifer Rubin posted this on their blog:

Today’s White House meeting suggests there is no deal remotely in sight on the debt ceiling. A GOP aide familiar with the talks told me, “Today was the most tense meeting of the week. In fact, the president ended the meeting by abruptly leaving the room. During the meeting, the speaker challenged the president to offer real spending cuts. He said the gimmicks and accounting tricks that Washington has used for decades are not applicable here.” House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has had enough. “When White House officials attempted to justify budgetary gimmicks, the speaker said pointedly ‘We’re not doing that anymore.’

And of course, how could we not get an asinine remark from Chairman Harry as to the situation!

WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says House Majority Leader Eric Cantor should not be part of the debt limit negotiations. He’s calling the Virginia Republican congressman “childish.”

Reid says Cantor’s conduct during the sensitive White House talks have shown, in Reid’s words, “he shouldn’t even be at the table.” Reid says other congressional leaders are negotiating in good faith as an Aug. 2 deadline approaches for raising the debt limit.

This from a certified out of touch idiot who just yesterday called Tea Party followers “Garbage”! One should not be surprised at this. After all, Comrade Harry certainly is in lockstep with Herr Obama as to his feelings about the dumb American electorate! Maybe if they’d stop talking down to their employer, (that’s the American Taxpaying Citizens for those of you out there who are to ignorant to realize that) and do the good of the country, we might in fact respect their opinions! But to have these lying scumbags lecture us about our so called ignorance when in fact they are destroying our economic base is pure tripe!

Of course they couldn’t leave it at that! No Sir! A few people have floated the idea of a balanced budget amendment, something of course that was met with the usual histrionics from the left. I didn’t think they could get anymore moronic than what we’ve already seen, but sure enough another statement straight from the rear end!
“The fact is that the balanced budget amendment would be, is basically an admission by Congress that they can’t do anything, right?” Carney said. “And that’s not true, as [evidenced by] these discussions that we’re engaged in right now. And it should not be true. And it’s a shame if people actually believe that. So no, we don’t support it.”

The bottom line is that Congress needs to come up with a solution to budget deficits and long-term debt, he said, not punt the issue to the Constitution.

Such an amendment “is not good for the economy; it doesn’t answer the problem, and we need to act because we are capable to doing the work that the American people sent us here to do,” Carney said.

MORON ALERT 2! Congress as a whole has steadfastly refused to do their job as to the budgeting process. Every elected official of either party for the last twenty years or more is guilty of complete dereliction of duty when it comes to the deficit if they voted to overspend. Doesn’t matter what party and as we’re seeing now, spineless Republicans only worried about their power are every bit responsible as the loonies on the left! As one can assume Carney is speaking for the President, one must also assume the President is completely oblivious to the fact that Congress and both he and past Presidents refuse to do their job! Mr. Carney, not only hasn’t Congress done anything right as you state, but neither has the bonehead that you work for!

The Democratic (or should I say Soviet Socialist Party of the U.S.?) Party has not even bothered to act on a budget in over two years! And in that time they had an unbeatable majority in both houses! Yet, they insisted the Republicans, spineless wimps that they are in effect stopped any budget process. Or as I would say they lied as the sacks of crap they really are! And for what? Rush as shown below is correct! The President as leader of the Democratic party and more so as the supposed leader of our country should have at least forced his party to do their Constitutional duty! But that would be against his plan to destroy this nation as we know it!

From Rush:

They have no specifics. They have no budget. Nor does Obama, other than this monstrosity from last February with a $3.7 trillion budget that not even one Democrat voted for. Other than that, they don't have one -- on purpose -- so that the only numbers out there are Republican numbers that they can demagogue. That's the strategy. So if Senate Democrats don't have to project spending and revenues -- if they can just choose not to in violation of the law -- then why should I have to pay quarterly taxes?

"Its 806 days, ladies and gentlemen, since Senate Democrats -- and they run the place -- have passed a budget. There are 365 days in a year. So it's well over two years since the Democrats, who run the place, have passed a budget. The law requires them to pass a budget every year. Eight hundred six days and counting –"

Gotta give him credit though! He can come out and do his usual class warfare let’s scare the Seniors thing as to non-payment of Social Security if we default. And yesterday, both him and Boener said the money for that in the end comes from the general fund. You know! The program that supposedly has its own trust fund? Oops! Forgot, that money was stolen for other asinine purposes years ago! However, the lies continue as Social Security can be paid!

From John Hawkins at Right Wing News:
Social Security benefits are entirely self-financing. They are paid for with payroll taxes collected from workers and their employers throughout their careers. These taxes are placed in a trust fund dedicated to paying benefits owed to current and future beneficiaries.

Most editorials are accompanied by an opposing view — a unique USA TODAY feature that allows readers to reach conclusions based on both sides of an argument rather than just the Editorial Board’s point of view.

When more taxes are collected than are needed to pay benefits, funds are converted to Treasury bonds — backed with the full faith and credit of the U.S. government — and are held in reserve for when revenue collected is not enough to pay the benefits due. We have just as much obligation to pay back those bonds with interest as we do to any other bondholders. The trust fund is the backbone of an important compact: that a lifetime of work will ensure dignity in retirement.

According to the most recent report of the independent Social Security Trustees, the trust fund is currently in surplus and growing. Even though Social Security began collecting less in taxes than it paid in benefits in 2010, the trust fund will continue to accrue interest and grow until 2025, and will have adequate resources to pay full benefits for the next 26 years.

Funny thing about that; Barack Obama is claiming (falsely, but still) that if the debt ceiling isn’t raised, we may not have the money to send out Social Security checks NEXT MONTH.

Here’s how President Barack Obama answered CBS’s Scott Pelley’s question about whether he could guarantee that Social Security checks would go out on August 3, the day after the government is supposed to reach its debt limit: “I cannot guarantee that those checks [he included veterans and the disabled, in addition to Social Security] go out on August 3rd if we haven’t resolved this issue. Because there may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it.”

And Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner echoed the president on CBS’s Face the Nation Sunday implying that if a budget deal isn’t reached by August 2, seniors might not get their Social Security checks.

As shown below, the President is full of it!

“The BPC study found that the United States is likely to hit the debt limit sometime between August 2 and August 9. “It’s a 44 percent overnight cut in federal spending” if Congress hits the debt limit, [Jay Powell of the Bipartisan Policy Center]said. The BPC study projects there will be $172 billion in federal revenues in August and $307 billion in authorized expenditures. That means there's enough money to pay for, say, interest on the debt ($29 billion), Social Security ($49.2 billion), Medicare and Medicaid ($50 billion), active duty troop pay ($2.9 billion), veterans affairs programs ($2.9 billion).
That leaves about $39 billion to fund other things.”

When is this going to stop! The electorate has got to get their heads out of the sand and react to the sheer disrespect these clowns have for us? Wake up America! You are being fed propaganda of the worst kind! While President Bozo first fiddles than pretends to take action, the country is dying!

Monday, July 4, 2011


There are many great documents that have been generated through the course of history. The works of Plato, Socrates, etc. come to mind. The Magna Carta of course was another great document. But there has never been in the history of mankind any greater document than the one cited below combined with the Federalist Papers and our Constitution!

These are not just mere pieces of paper with scribbled words or thoughts. These documents are the basis of the greatest country this world has ever known! The men who wrote these words were not perfect! They were men! That’s all. Yet they had the common sense to realize what Freedom should be and set up the framework for our liberty and self expression.

Men and women put their life on the line to afford us our Freedoms! Our forefathers risked all! My father and step-fathers fought for our country and our freedoms. Even now, we have our people in harm’s way defending this precious thing called Freedom!
Because of this, we have a country that in theory allows all points of view to be aired! At least that’s the way it is supposed to be! Yet not only do we now have government entities and in effect a wanna be dictator telling us what we can think and do, we have an open hatred for our country’s basic principles being expressed from the President on down!

Br it jealousy, lust for power, religious fanaticism, Hard Left Socialism or whatever, there is a concerted effort to destroy our country both from outside and within!

Yet through all of this, millions of people from around the world want to come here! (Neil Diamond’s great song, AMERICA! Says it all, doesn’t it?) They want the Freedoms and Liberties that what appears to be the vast majority of citizens here have come to taken for granted, so much so that the electorate has chosen to accept lies and control over every facet of their lives. I’ve cited before my friend from the old USSR who asks how we refuse to learn from history! How can we not understand the very basics which make our country great! How can we be turning to the very systems that millions of people including him are trying to escape from!

Love of country isn't a joke! Love of country is a real, live emotion! On this Independence Day weekend, all of us need to remember that! Somehow, some way we need to go back to our roots! The words below as well as our other great documents are the guide lines that made us great when we in fact followed them! And yes, Revolution is part of this! We can revolt through the ballot box as I have said countless times before!

On this Independence Day 2011, let me give my prayers and thanks to our forefathers for handing us this great country. My prayers and thanks to our fighting men and women for giving their lives to keep me and my countrymen free! May God Bless America!

I now beseech all too once again read, I mean really read the stirring words of our Declaration of Independence! The path to Liberty was and is a brutal fight in many ways, but the rewards are just! We as a country must get our hearts back! There is no better way to start than to reacquaint ourselves with our basic principles. Our future as a country depends on this!


IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to affect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept amo
ng us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
