OH JEEZZ, ANOTHER 'RUBBER BROTHER.' The NAACP's Julian Bond's 'Hate Speech.' Will Obama Condemn Him For Acting 'Stupidly?'
CLICK HERE TO SEE THE VIDEO
Julian Bond looks white, acts white and he even married white and grew up in a white culture, going to prestigious prep schools like the George School in Newtown Pennsylvania. He taught at Harvard where his failure-of-a-President and friend Barack Obama went. He loves to play the race card, often blaming Republicans for things they had absolutely nothing to do with to promote his own organization. He's a big supporter of gay marriage and sides with the elitist guilt-ridden white liberals, yet this MORON is the Chairman of the NAACP?!? How does that happen? This guy is a poster child for a 'rubber brother.'
In a speech Wednesday, NAACP Chairman Julian Bond called on defenders of civil rights to support the country's first black president as he faces what is expected to be tough second year in office.
Bond's remarks at Radford University's fourth annual celebration of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday came a day after the Democratic Party lost the late Ted Kennedy's Massachusetts Senate seat to Republican Scott Brown, and with it, the party's filibuster-proof majority.
The election puts Obama's health care overhaul in jeopardy and has caused speculation that public opinion may be turning against the president.
While "black faces in high places" give reason for hope, Bond, the 70-year-old founder of the storied Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, argued that "racism is alive and well for every nonwhite American, including the president."
Obama's historic election has ironically caused complacency among some civil rights supporters, who see it is a sign that racism in America is dead.
But that same election has energized "the Taliban wing" of the Republican Party, Bond said, from anti-government groups such as the "birthers," who challenge Obama's citizenship, to "tea party" members who call for the dismantling of much of the federal government. READ MORE...
NOTE- According to Julian Bond, the fact that Barack Hussein Obama is a pathological liar and a total failure, in addition to being the most corrupt and economically incompetent President in US History, it's white peoples fault. It's the Republicans fault. It's the Tea Party movements fault. What?!?
We hope that Julian (Julian? lol) keeps talking trash because the more 'white people' he offends, the millions of white people who voted for a (half) black President, the better chance they have of waking up and seeing the NAACP for what it really is. The NAACP is a racist organization and it's always been controversial; just listen to this speech by Julian Bond. Will someone please find us a hate speech by a Republican so we can post it! We can't find one, yet we have MANY hate speeches made by members on the left. Why is that?
Affirmative Action is the perfect example of the hypocrisy of the NAACP. It's pretty much saying, 'to advance colored people, we must discriminate against white people.' How effin dumb is that?
The advancement of 'colored' people they say? What scholar came up with that name? Colored is a pretty offensive term. No one colored blacks with a crayon or spray paint. They might want to look into changing that. As for 'advancement,' the only thing the NAACP advances, are the pockets of race baiting leeches like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Julian Bond. (Julian? 'Come on man, are you serious?' lol)
The NAACP actually creates more racism and divides MANY people while supporting a political party and liberal policies that do nothing but DESTROY the black communities in America. Just look at every single major city on the map and see what party has controlled it from the bottom up for decades! How is that working out for the advancement of colored people?
We hope Julian Bond keeps running his mouth and making more speeches and MAYBE, just maybe some of these cowardly white people with no spine or self-worth who support his organization will wake up and get a backbone someday.
Julian Bond must NOT have been paying attention in class when Martin Luther King was speaking. We SHOULD judge people by the content of their character and NOT the color of their skin. President Barack Obama's character is AWFUL, from his ties with Bill Ayers, Jerimiah Wright, Tony Rezko, Van Jones, Andy Stern, David Axelrod, Rahm Emanuel, Cass Sunstein, Kevin Jennings, Carol Browner and Mark Lloyd to his backroom deals, bribes, kickbacks and paybacks with the SEIU, AMA, Wall Street and the AARP to name just a few. His arrogance, deception, Saul Alinsky tactics, broken promises, his anti-American attitude and his sorry excuses for failure like always blaming George Bush for everything he fails at are getting old and tired. He's a con artist and a charming one; nothing more.

You would think President Obama's jobs speech would be about the American people and reviving the economy. Think again...
This President has been a total embarrassment and his election victory will go down as the biggest con job in U.S history...
In mid-2004, then-House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi learned something from a CIA briefing that made her blood boil. Pelosi reportedly "came unglued" at the revelation and had "strong words" with national security adviser Condoleezza Rice, demanding that the CIA abandon its plans. As a result, a top-secret finding that President George W. Bush signed to authorize the CIA's activities was revised. Pelosi succeeded in stopping the agency from moving forward with the controversial operation.
What drove Pelosi to action? Not the CIA's waterboarding of suspected al-Qaeda terrorists. In a 2009 interview, a former senior Bush administration official directed me to a little-noticed item from Time magazine. According to this 2004 report, Pelosi objected to a CIA plan to provide money to moderate political parties in Iraq ahead of scheduled elections, in an effort to counter Iran, which was funneling millions to extremist elements. "House minority leader Nancy Pelosi 'came unglued' when she learned about what a source described as a plan for 'the CIA to put an operation in place to affect the outcome of the elections,' " Time reported. "Pelosi had strong words with National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice in a phone call about the issue. . . . A senior U.S. official hinted that, under pressure from the Hill, the Administration scaled back its original plans." (Her role was also reported on this page by David Ignatius in 2007.READ MORE...
(Uhum uhuh bullsh*t!) Post- state of the union address poll shows disbelief among most voters on Obama claims...
Did Barack Obama sell Americans on his claims of progress in Wednesday night’s State of the Union speech? According to a Rasmussen poll released today, Obama didn’t get a “good, solid B-plus” for honesty. Only a fifth of respondents believed that Obama cut taxes for 95% of Americans, and even Democrats couldn’t believe the “two million jobs saved or created” fantasy:
The president in the speech declared that his administration has cut taxes for 95% of Americans. He even chided Republicans for not applauding on that point. However, just 21% of voters nationwide believe that taxes have been cut for 95% of Americans. Most (53%) say it has not happened, and 26% are not sure. Other polling shows that nearly half the nation’s voters expect their own taxes to go up during the Obama years.
The president also asserted that “after two years of recession, the economy is growing again.” Just 35% of voters believe that statement is true, while 50% say it is false.
Obama claimed that steps taken by his team are responsible for putting two million people to work “who would otherwise be unemployed.” Just 27% of voters say that statement is true. Fifty-one percent (51%) say it’s false. …
As for the claim about two million jobs, 46% of Democrats say it’s true, while 77% of Republicans say it’s not. As for those not affiliated with either major party, 24% say it’s true, and 59% say it’s false. READ MORE...
HOTAIR- Normally, most conservatives would groan at hearing that the Republican response to Barack Obama’s weekly presidential address would be coming from Senator Susan Collins (R-ME). In this case, though, it’s a smart move. If Jim DeMint or Mike Pence had delivered the speech you’ll watch below, it still would have been a fine speech — but we already know where conservatives stand on counterterrorism. However, when a moderate like Collins calls the handling of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab “irresponsible,” “dangerous,” and “inconceivable,” that has a broader political impact. When Collins says that “Foreign terrorists are enemy combatants and they must be treated as such,” and calls the current Obama policies a “charade,” that will make it more difficult for people to write it off as knee-jerk, right-wing contempt for Obama instead of his policies:
THE 'RUBBER BROTHER' IS BACK! Disgraced former Obama czar reemerges. Communist-group founder to address world's leading corporations..
Van Jones, President Obama's controversial former "green jobs" czar, is slated to address a major environmental forum next week alongside speakers from such major corporations as Microsoft, IBM, Yahoo, Intel, Best Buy and the Pacific Gas and Electric Company.
Jones resigned in September after it was exposed he founded a communist revolutionary organization and signed a statement that accused the Bush administration of possible involvement in the 9/11 attacks. Jones also called for "resistance" against the U.S. government.
Jones is one of 22 speakers at next Thursday's State of Green Business Forum in San Francisco. The day-long event, sponsored by the environmental activist website GreenBiz.com, focuses on corporate environmental trends, carbon management and "green" business initiatives.
Other scheduled speakers at the forum include Rob Bernard, chief environmental strategist for Microsoft; Rich Lechner, vice president of energy and environment for IBM; Christina Page, director of climate and energy strategy for Yahoo; Rick Rommel, senior vice president of emerging business for Best Buy Co., Lorie Wigle, general manager of the eco-technology program office for Intel Corporation. Also two speakers will be on hand from the Pacific Gas and Electric Company. READ MORE...
RUBBER BROTHER- A black guy who never was really 'black' and can't identify with blacks because he grew up in a white environment; usually upper middle class-liberal. To make up for his loss of 'blackness' he seeks non-existent 'social injustices,' false racism claims, and becomes a 'wanna-be' activist.
Some choose to study 'African American' studies because they never really lived it. Most are black professors, politicians and activists who have attended prep schools and Ivy League Universities and believe in liberal policies that are actually destructive to the black community.
They like to use Dr Martin Luther King's name, yet work against everything MLK stood for. They side with Socialist-Marxist-Communist policies, the gay and transgendered lifestyles, wealth redistribution, hate crimes, affirmative action, aborting millions of black babies, high taxes, big government and immoral irresponsible behavior being rewarded by placing fault on whites, usually using the weak excuse of 'oppression.'
They hate capitalism because they believe capitalism is dominated by the evil white man. They believe in everyone being dragged down instead of the individual working hard to raise themselves up to prosperity. They're are hypocrites, often making their own money off of capitalism, yet they demonize it.
Some great examples of 'Rubber Brothers' are Barack Obama, Van Jones, Marc Lamont Hill, Michael Eric Dyson, Ludacris, Cornel West, Mark Lloyd, Eric Holder, Al Sharpton, Henry Louis Gates, Eugene Robinson.
OBAMA'S PRIORITIES ARE BACKWARDS: Justice Dept.: Obama administration may take action on BCS. Oh no....
"Forget the economy and jobs, forget prosecuting the black panthers for intimidating white voters at a Philadelphia polling station even though it's caught on video, forget all of that ACORN voter fraud, forget treating terrorists like terrorists; Instead, here's a bright idea, lets go after the BCS and college football!"
College football isn't perfect, and a playoff would be nice, but congress and the justice department needs to STAY OUT OF IT! This administration is so corrupt, dishonest, incompetent, economically retarded and financially reckless. These are the type of idiots who if they all put their heads together and ran a Burger King, they would bankrupt it in less than a year. We don't need these MORONS concentrating on the BCS.
We don't need a bunch of RINO's, stuffy elitist liberals, Bobby 'Punch Drunk' Rush and the rest of the Congressional Black Caucus of 'Dummies' and Obama sitting around in hearings drinking spring water wasting millions of taxpayers dollars by interfering with the most exciting and most watched sport in the country. The government ruins just about everything they get involved with. See- Fannie Mae-Freddie Mac, Post Office, Social Security, Medicaid, Amtrak, Cash for Clunkers etc..
The Obama administration is considering several steps that would review the legality of the controversial Bowl Championship Series, the Justice Department said in a letter Friday to a senator who had asked for an antitrust review.
In the letter to Sen. Orrin Hatch, obtained by The Associated Press, Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich wrote that the Justice Department is reviewing Hatch's request and other materials to determine whether to open an investigation into whether the BCS violates antitrust laws.
"Importantly, and in addition, the administration also is exploring other options that might be available to address concerns with the college football postseason," Weich wrote, including asking the Federal Trade Commission to review the legality of the BCS under consumer protection laws.
Several lawmakers and many critics want the BCS to switch to a playoff system, rather than the ratings system it uses to determine the teams that play in the championship game.
"The administration shares your belief that the current lack of a college football national championship playoff with respect to the highest division of college football ... raises important questions affecting millions of fans, colleges and universities, players and other interested parties," Weich wrote.

Joy Behar: Tim Tebow Just As Easily Could Have Been 'Rapist Pedophile' Another Dumb Statement By The Angry Liberal Cow.
What the hell is Joy Behar talking about? Yes, Tim Tebow is an amazing kid and we need more people like him and less people like Joy Behar. We are glad Joy's mother didn't abort her because she provides us with even more evidence of just how stupid liberals are...
President Barack Obama was wrong and Justice Samuel Alito was right.
During his first State of the Union speech on Wednesday, President Barack Obama incorrectly stated that foreign nationals and foreign entities can now contribute unlimited amounts of money to U.S. political campaigns because of a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling lifting certain campaign finance restrictions.
This prompted an immediate reaction from Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, who, sitting directly in front of the president, shook his head and apparently mouthed the words “not true” when Obama made his remark.
The high court’s 5-4 ruling in a First Amendment case, Citizens United vs. Federal Elections Commission (FEC), lifted restrictions for companies, unions, and other organizations to make independent expenditures in political campaigns.
The court decision, however does not allow corporations to contribute directly to a campaign or coordinate expenditures with a campaign. Nor did the ruling lift existing law that blocks foreign contributions to political campaigns READ MORE...
The most embarrassing thing Janet Napolitano did on Wednesday turns out not to be napping during her boss’ State of the Union speech. Instead, as CNS News reports, the Secretary of Homeland Security apparently ditched a meeting with Congress over the handling of the EunuchBomber. Even Democrats want an answer to the question, “Where the hell is Secretary Napolitano?”
Top Democrats on the House Homeland Security Committee publicly scolded Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano for failing to show up at a Wednesday hearing where the committee examined the attempted Christmas Day suicide bombing of Northwest Flight 253. One Democrat on the committee said he wanted to know “where the hell” Napolitano was. READ MORE...

ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE: Pelosi Says She’ll 'Poll Vault' Obamacare Through Congress Even Though 66% of Americans Don't Want It..
That's right, 66% of Americans do NOT want 'Obamacare.' Liberals will try and spin that number, because they think Americans are too stupid to know the difference between the people WANTING common sense health care reform, and NOT wanting the liberal version of 'Obamacare.' It isn't the American people's fault that a large group of incompetent democrats came up with a disastrous 2000 page 'pile of shit' health care bill that will cost trillions while NOT improving health care.
Speaker Pelosi on vaulting Obamacare through Congress:
“We’ll go through the gate. If the gate’s closed, we’ll go over a fence. If the fence is too high, we’ll pole vault in. If that doesn’t work, we’ll parachute in but we’re going to get health care reform passed for the American people.”
This evil disgusting women and most despised political figure in U.S history just loves thumbing her nose at the American people. Nancy Pelosi is a mentally disturbed, out of touch imbecile. (Imbecile- usually offensive : a person affected with moderate mental retardation)
Only 30% of Americans say they want Congress to pass Obamacare.
But, this won’t stop Pelosi from parachuting it in. Then it's party time on her private jet....
Taxpayers pay $101,000 for Pelosi's in-flight 'food, booze' Speaker's trips 'are more about partying than anything else
Scientists broke the law by hiding climate change data: But legal loophole means they won't be prosecuted
Scientist at the heart of the 'Climategate' email scandal broke the law when they refused to give raw data to the public, the privacy watchdog has ruled.
The Information Commissioner's office said University of East Anglia researchers breached the Freedom of Information Act when handling requests from climate change sceptics.
But the scientists will escape prosecution because the offences took place more than six months ago.
The revelation comes after a string of embarrassing blunders and gaffes for climate scientists and will fuel concerns that key researchers are too secretive and too arrogant.
It will pile pressure on the director of the university's climate change unit, Professor Phil Jones, who has stood aside while an investigation is carried out, and make it harder for him to return.
The ruling followed a complaint from retired engineer David Holland-66, whose Freedom of Information-requests were ignored.
Last night Mr Holland welcomed the watchdog's decision but said it was disappointing the researchers would not be prosecuted.
'All we are trying to do is make the scientists follow their own professional rules by being open, transparent and honest,' he said. 'We are not trying to show that human beings don't affect the climate, but to show that the science is not settled.'
ELITIST PIG: Taxpayers pay $101,000 for Pelosi's in-flight 'food, booze' Speaker's trips 'are more about partying than anything else
It reads like a dream order for some wild frat party: Maker's Mark whiskey, Courvoisier cognac, Johnny Walker Red scotch, Grey Goose vodka, E&J brandy, Bailey's Irish Crème, Bacardi Light rum, Jim Beam whiskey, Beefeater gin, Dewars scotch, Bombay Sapphire gin, Jack Daniels whiskey … and Corona beer.
But that single receipt makes up just part of the more than $101,000 taxpayers paid for "in-flight services" – including food and liquor, for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's trips on Air Force jets over the last two years. That's almost $1,000 per week.
Documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act by Judicial Watch, which investigates and prosecutes government corruption, show that the Pelosi incurred expenses of some $2.1 million for her use of Air Force jets for travel over that time.
"Speaker Pelosi has a history of wasting taxpayer funds with her boorish demands for military travel," Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said today. "And these documents suggest the Speaker's congressional delegations are more about partying than anything else."
Pelosi, D-Calif., who joined President Obama on a list of Top 10 corrupt politicians, was added to that list for her "sense of entitlement," Judicial Watch said when the "honors" were announced not long ago.
"Politicians believe laws and rules (even the U.S. Constitution) apply to the rest of us but not to them. Case in point: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her excessive and boorish demands for military travel. Judicial Watch obtained documents from the Pentagon in 2008 that suggest Pelosi has been treating the Air Force like her own personal airline," the evaluation said. READ MORE...

The White House ordered the Justice Department to consider other places to try the 9/11 terror suspects after a wave of opposition to holding the trial in lower Manhattan.
The White House took the action hours after Mayor Bloomberg called Attorney General Eric Holder to say he would "prefer that they did it elsewhere."
"It would be an inconvenience at the least, and probably that's too mild a word for people that live in the neighborhood and businesses in the neighborhood," Bloomberg told reporters.
"There are places that would be less expensive for the taxpayers and less disruptive for New York City."
State leaders have railed against a plan to try Khalid Shaikh Mohammed in Manhattan federal court since Holder proposed it last month.
The order to consider new venues does not change the White House's position that Mohammed should be tried in civilian court.
"President Obama is still committed to trying Mohammed and four other terrorist detainees in federal court," spokesman Bill Burton said Thursday.
"He agrees with the attorney general's opinion that ... he and others can be litigated successfully and securely in the United States of America, just like others have," Burton said. READ MORE...
Remember Amber Lee Ettinger, the "Obamagirl" who had 15 minutes of fame during the 2008 presidential campaign with her video paen to Barack Obama?
The New York Post reports this morning that Obamagirl wishes her man had spent the past year doing something about the economy instead of obsessing about health care reform.
"I know he's getting a lot of flak for things that he's not doing. In my opinion, I feel like he should be focusing a lot more on jobs and the economy," Ettinger told the Post.
"He did create some jobs but most of them were government jobs and that doesn't really help the middle class. But it helps a bit," she said.
You got that right, girl.
NOTE- We applaud her for finally coming around and realizing Obama is a fraud. What took her so long though? If she had just spent 45 minutes on google last year, she could have found out about Obama's past, his associations, his voting record, his lies, scandals and agenda.
Her taste in men might be horrible, but that's okay. If she's in to dishonest guys with purple gums, big ears, a scrawny body and an annoying voice, then go for it.
We're taking her off the 'idiot' list after seeing her on Hannity tonight. She's not a typical liberal 'drone' and she's not a mentally disturbed progressive who is living in total denial. She's just a young naive girl when it comes to economics, politics and national defense.
At least she's smoking hot and pretty talented, so she already has more going for her than your average liberal does..
The Obama administration stunned New York's delegation Thursday, dropping the bombshell news that it does not support funding the 9/11 health bill.
The state's two senators and 14 House members met with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius just hours before President Obama implored in his speech to the nation for Congress to come together and deliver a government that delivers on its promises to the American people.
So the legislators were floored to learn the Democratic administration does not want to deliver for the tens of thousands of people who sacrificed after 9/11, and the untold numbers now getting sick.
"I was stunned — and very disappointed," said Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who like most of the other legislators had expected more of a discussion on how to more forward.
"To say the least, I was flabbergasted," said Staten Island Rep. Mike McMahon. READ MORE...
BREITBART SLAMS SCHUSTER: 'MSNBC DIDN'T CONVICT MAJOR HASAN AND THE PANTY BOMBER, BUT CONVICTED O'KEEFE. HEATED EXCHANGE..MUST SEE VIDEO
In which Breitbart gets grilled about journalistic ethics by a guy who was reprimanded by his own network this very morning for “inappropriately” jumping to conclusions about O’Keefe and whose career highlights include telling the Olby faithful that he was “convinced” an indictment of Karl Rove in Plamegate was on the way. A question from AmSpec’s Philip Klein: If, as Shuster suggests, it’s not appropriate to accuse someone of criminal behavior until formal charges have been filed, how come the left feels so chill about calling Bush and Rumsfeld war criminals? Food for thought as you watch. In Shuster’s semi-defense, he does grudgingly retract his own hasty judgment about O’Keefe — which, as of this writing, is more than can be said for CBS and the LA Times.
Needless to say, this is the stuff cable news dreams are made of. Oh, almost forgot: Right after Breitbart was cut off and this segment ended, Shuster brought in Eric Boehlert of Media Matters to play a few minutes of softball about what a shady guy Breitbart is. If you follow AB’s Twitter feed, you know that he regularly taunts Media Matters — and Boehlert particularly — for propagandizing for the left. I’m sure having him on here and giving Breitbart no chance to respond to him was pure coincidence. READ MORE...
Obama talking about his favorite person; himself...
Any speech from President Obama is guaranteed to include numerous references to himself, blaming George Bush, and creating straw men. Wednesday night's State of the Union was no different.
By my count from watching the speech, here is a numbers breakdown of Obama's first State of the Union:
114 - The staggering number of times Obama referred to himself. He said "I" 96 times, and used "my" or "me" 18 times. For example: "When I ran for president, I promised I wouldn't just do what was popular, I would do what was necessary." Barack Obama's favorite person is still Barack Obama.
86 - Times Obama was interrupted by applause, almost always by his fellow Democrats.
70 - The number of minutes the speech took.
13 - Stories of people that may or may not exist, in an attempt to personalize his speech. Examples: "The window manufacturer in Philadelphia", "the struggling small business owner who wrote to me", and "the eight year old boy in Louisiana."
10 - Times Obama blamed his own failures on George W. Bush. Instead of owning up to his own failures, Obama must constantly try to remind people that the problems were there before he got into office. Example: "That's what we did for eight years."
4 - Attacks on Wall Street or bankers. There is always a bogeyman that the Democrats must blame for the country's woes. Along with George Bush, the current evil entity is Wall Street.
4 - Arguments with straw men. Obama loves to debate with people who do not have a forum. He is able to get his point across and we are not allowed to hear from the other side. Examples: "Those that disagree" and "some on the right."
1 - Moderation from his ultra-liberal agenda. He actually showed a willingness toward more opening America's vast, untapped oil resources. "It means making tough decisions about opening new offshore areas for oil and gas development." Unfortunately, this was the only example of Obama "moving to the center". Despite the Brown-out in Massachusetts, Obama has not learned the lesson that America rejects his leftist policies.
0 - New ideas. It was the same old agenda from Obama. He wants health care reform, another stimulus, cap and trade. He remains tone deaf to the U.S. electorate.
0 - Changes in ObamaCare. He repeatedly praised the plan and said it must be passed. The main fault he found in it was that he "didn't explain it more clearly." Obama said he would listen to new ideas, but the ideas of tort reform and allowing insurance purchases across state lines are not new. He refused to listen to them before.
0 - Lessons learned from the failure of Porkulus. Yesterday, we found out the $787 billion dollar plan actually cost $862 billion. It failed miserably on its promise to keep unemployment below 8 percent. Now, Obama wants a new "jobs plan".
0 - Focus on national security. There was no discussion of Guantanamo Bay, terrorist detainees being tried on U.S. soil, or the Flight 253 terror attempt.
Where were these people in 2007 and 2008? Oh, right — contributing to Barack Obama’s campaign (via Instapundit):
When Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner and White House adviser Valerie Jarrett hosted a private dinner with the leaders of six banks to discuss financial regulation on Jan. 20, the bankers soon changed the subject. The president needed to stop demonizing Wall Street, they told Jarrett, according to three people familiar with the meeting.
What the executives, including Brian Moynihan, the chief executive officer of Bank of America Corp., and Robert Kelly, the chief executive of Bank of New York Mellon Corp., didn’t know was that President Barack Obama, who had proposed a new tax on the biggest banks six days earlier, was about to strike again.
After leaving the meeting around 9 p.m., the executives learned that Obama would ask Congress the next day to ban commercial banks from running proprietary trading operations, owning hedge funds, and rapidly increasing market share. In his remarks, Obama indicated his willingness to go to the mat with the industry: “So if these folks want a fight, it’s a fight I’m ready to have.”
Industry officials said they were stunned. “We did not know it was coming, that’s for sure,” said Scott Talbott, a lobbyist for the Financial Services Roundtable, which represents large banks and insurance companies and whose chairman, Richard Davis, the CEO of U.S. Bancorp, also attended the dinner.

SAY IT AINT SO JOE! BIDEN SAYS 'UNEMPLOYMENT WILL GROW IN THE SPRING' THE 'OLD HORNY' LADY FROM 'WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE' HAS TO CORRECT HIM...
Well, we can't call the 'old horny woman' from 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire' a journalist. That would be like calling Chris Matthews, Diane Sawyer, Katie Couric, David Schuster and Keith Olbermann journalists. (And oh, that other dude, Maddow)
As for Joe Biden, they say when you're drunk, 'the truth comes out.' Maybe those bottles of Scotch Obama sent down the street to Joe's crib to keep him out of the spotlight backfired. Or was it just another gaffe..Maybe Biden should have teleprompters everywhere he goes like Barry does so he doesn't slip up when he tells one of his many lies..
We say whether 'scrappy' Joe knew it or not, lucky guess or not, unemployment WILL go up..good job Joe Biden from Scranton Delaware...
“Not true”: Alito mouths words as Obama hammers Supreme Court. Has any President in history ever demagogued the Supreme Court with such disrespect?
He’s on the far left of your screen, seated to the right of Sotomayor. Politico’s calling it his Joe Wilson moment.
When you hear the president of the United States demagoging the First Amendment, you sit there and you take it, son.
Professor, Georgetown University Law Center :
In the history of the State of the Union has any President ever called out the Supreme Court by name, and egged on the Congress to jeer a Supreme Court decision, while the Justices were seated politely before him surrounded by hundreds Congressmen? To call upon the Congress to countermand (somehow) by statute a constitutional decision, indeed a decision applying the First Amendment? What can this possibly accomplish besides alienating Justice Kennedy who wrote the opinion being attacked. Contrary to what we heard during the last administration, the Court may certainly be the object of presidential criticism without posing any threat to its independence. But this was a truly shocking lack of decorum and disrespect towards the Supreme Court for which an apology is in order. A new tone indeed.
NOTE- The hypocrisy and arrogance of Barack Obama. He is hands down the most corrupt, deceptive and incompetent President in history and he's all about the same 'Wall Street' and 'special interest' he fibs about. Obama DOES know that there are still millions of IDIOTS out there who just love him to death no matter how many lies he tells.
Those people are spineless and weak-minded...
President Barack Obama and liberal members of Congress are furious about a Supreme Court ruling that makes it easier for individuals, companies, organizations and labor unions to support political candidates. Immediately after the court issued its decision, the White House and liberal lawmakers huddled to discuss proposals to undercut it.
Among their ideas, according to The Associated Press, are laws toughening campaign spending disclosure requirements for companies, a ban on campaign spending by firms that have received federal "bailout" money, and a demand that political ads by publicly traded companies be approved by shareholders. Obama has said something needs to be done to stop "special interests."
But we have heard of no similar proposals involving labor unions - some members of which disagree with their political agendas.
Unions have been staunch supporters of Obama and most liberal lawmakers, of course.
Clearly, the only special interest worrying the liberals is their own plans for re-election.
There's a story of an ex hausted tenor at La Scala who, facing repeated cries of "Encore," responded that he couldn't go on. A man rose in the audience to say, "You'll keep singing until you get it right."
That seems to be the defining principle of the Obama administration -- whose response to every problem, every setback, every hiccup and challenge has been, simply, "more Obama."
Indeed, for people who aren't sticklers for political jargon, it will be a shock that last night was Obama's first State of the Union Address, since it was his third formal address to a joint session of Congress. Yet for all of the political déjà vu, what was most surprising last night was the degree to which Obama delivered even more of the same.
Washington graybeards and pundits have been insisting that Obama needs to "start over," "reboot" and "tack to the middle" after Scott Brown's win in Massachusetts. But Obama's response last night was to recommit himself to the agenda that has gotten him in so much trouble.
In fairness, the president took a French-bath of Clintonism before he took to his beloved TelePrompTer. He doused himself with the scent of the deficit-fighter and trade-promoter. He unveiled a slew of small, easy, applause-gathering proposals and populist appeals that he knows will go nowhere. READ MORE...
President Obama said Wednesday night he will work with Congress and the military to repeal the "don't ask, don't tell" policy that bars gays and lesbians from openly serving in the armed forces.
Obama made the remark in his first State of the Union speech during a short litany of civil rights issues, which included his successful hate crimes bill, a move to "crack down on equal-pay laws" and improvement of the immigration system.
"We find unity in our incredible diversity, drawing on the promise enshrined in our Constitution: the notion that we are all created equal, that no matter who you are or what you look like, if you abide by the law you should be protected by it," he said.
"We must continually renew this promise. My administration has a Civil Rights Division that is once again prosecuting civil rights violations and employment discrimination. We finally strengthened our laws to protect against crimes driven by hate," he said. READ MORE...
NOTE- Give them an inch, they will take a mile. If 'don't ask, don't tell' is working just fine, why toy with it? If gays 'openly' serve, look for assaults to increase. Look for gay military parades on the base and 'domestic partnership' base housing, ridicule, lower troop morale, separate living quarters-barracks and showers, lawsuits for discrimination, some frivolous, along with many other disasters that this will create in addition to the cost by the taxpayer.
Why do liberals always try to force the gay lifestyle onto everyone. People have the right to disagree with that lifestyle. It doesn't mean you're 'homophobic.' If you're gay and in the military, do your job, shut your mouth (when working) and do whatever you want in your bedroom after work.
Liberals are the LAST people who should have influence in decision making when it comes to the military. MOST are anti-American, anti-military and most have never served, in addition to the fact that liberals are friggin idiots. They're doing this for one reason and one reason only; the gay vote.
THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO SHOULD MAKE THIS DECISION ARE THE MEN AND WOMEN IN THE MILITARY AND VETERANS. LET THEM VOTE ON IT. NOT NANCY PELOSI, NOT BARNEY FRANK, NOT A COMMUNITY ORGANIZER, NOT CHUCK SCHUMER, NOT MAXINE WATERS. FAIR?
COMMANDER IN CHIEF BARRACK HUSSEIN OBAMA. WHAT A JOKE. UM UM UM...
FATAL ATTRACTION: Oh Boy...Chris Matthews Forgot Obama Was 'Black' For An Hour (We forgot he was 'half white' for the past year..) UPDATE
President Obama might want to upgrade that restraining order he has on Chris Matthews, it looks like the 'thrill' is back. If only the camera could have panned down to see the wet spot from Chris's 'leak' on his pant leg. How disgraceful MSNBC has become..
Chris Matthews better stop fantasizing about Obama or his wife is going to drop divorce papers on his table one morning. Chris and his 'obsession' with Obama is not much different from a woman who leaves her husband because he's obsessed with porn. It's so hard to watch Hardball anymore, which explains why his ratings have hit rock bottom. He's not even on the radar and even the angry 'cow' Joy Baher and that tall guy Racheal Maddow are crushing him in the ratings. That's pretty bad...

Chris Matthews is far from objective and it's really showing now. When speaking of progressive liberals, he says things like 'we' and 'us.' It's a dead give away. If he disagrees with someone, he goes into a hissy-fit and talks over them while they're trying to answer his question. That's a major TURN OFF...
Matthews also FORGOT to realize that Barack Obama is not 'BLACK' he's 'bi-racial.' He is half white. Barack Obama acts exactly like a 'typical white' liberal. Believe it or not, most blacks disagree with most of what Obama believes in, yet MOST blacks still vote democrat. We see that changing soon. Obama's a flaming liberal and their policies are terrible for black people with both negro and non-negro dialect. In fact, Obama's policies are bad for everyone; the rich, the poor and especially the middle class. There's no disputing that..
American has been post-racial long before the scrawny 'community organizer' conned millions of naive idiots into voting for him. If anything, he is really starting to divide people and even blacks are realizing he's no different from a 'rubber brother.'
As for all of those white people in the audience applauding, who cares what color they are? Is Chrissy saying that there weren't any blacks in that audience last night? The Congressional Black Caucus of 'Dummies' had to be there! Obama needed them and the guilty white liberal elities to clap for him.
Why do liberals always use race to make some ridiculous meaningless point? It's because liberals are idiots. That's a fact and we prove it all over this site.
'Clean the semen off your depends and pay attention Chris.'
FINALLY- When Chris says the Republicans are the party of NO, people who aren't naive and stupid don't like to hear that dishonesty and will turn the channel. The TRUTH is that the democrats are the party of, 'We won, we're the majority, get out of this room, we don't want to hear any of your plans. Now lock the door Harry.'
Chris Matthews is still in denial about Massachusetts, New Jersey and Virginia. Remember, not only do white liberals think blacks are stupid, they think everyone is beneath them and also stupid. They might be right that we DO have millions on 'politically dumb' people in America who could tell you who won American Idol three years ago, but couldn't tell you who the Vice President is, but we also have many Americans who are waking up and becoming more informed. Part of that reason is that they're turning off CNN, NBC, ABC, MSNBC and CBS and they're switching to FOX. See- Ratings!
'Don't worry Chris, with all of the idiotic things that come out of your mouth, at least your YouTube ratings will increase.'
UPDATE- Matthews: Uh, I meant that everyone else forgot Obama was black
Jon Stewart slams Matthews
It's quite impressive how this radical nerd can throw on a suit and con millions of idiots into supporting him, even though he lies every time he opens his trap..
By CALVIN WOODWARD
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama told Americans the bipartisan deficit commission he will appoint won't just be "one of those Washington gimmicks." Left unspoken in that assurance was the fact that the commission won't have any teeth.
Obama confronted some tough realities in his State of the Union speech Wednesday night, chief among them that Americans are continuing to lose their health insurance as Congress struggles to pass an overhaul.
Yet some of his ideas for moving ahead skirted the complex political circumstances standing in his way.
A look at some of Obama's claims and how they compare with the facts:
OBAMA: "Starting in 2011, we are prepared to freeze government spending for three years. Spending related to our national security, Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security will not be affected. But all other discretionary government programs will. Like any cash-strapped family, we will work within a budget to invest in what we need and sacrifice what we don't."
THE FACTS: The anticipated savings from this proposal would amount to less than 1 percent of the deficit - and that's if the president can persuade Congress to go along.
Obama is a convert to the cause of broad spending freezes. In the presidential campaign, he criticized Republican opponent John McCain for suggesting one. "The problem with a spending freeze is you're using a hatchet where you need a scalpel," he said a month before the election. Now, Obama wants domestic spending held steady in most areas where the government can control year-to-year costs. The proposal is similar to McCain's.
OBAMA: "I've called for a bipartisan fiscal commission, modeled on a proposal by Republican Judd Gregg and Democrat Kent Conrad. This can't be one of those Washington gimmicks that lets us pretend we solved a problem. The commission will have to provide a specific set of solutions by a certain deadline. Yesterday, the Senate blocked a bill that would have created this commission. So I will issue an executive order that will allow us to go forward, because I refuse to pass this problem on to another generation of Americans."
THE FACTS: Any commission that Obama creates would be a weak substitute for what he really wanted - a commission created by Congress that could force lawmakers to consider unpopular remedies to reduce the debt, including curbing politically sensitive entitlements like Social Security and Medicare. That idea crashed in the Senate this week, defeated by equal numbers of Democrats and Republicans. Any commission set up by Obama alone would lack authority to force its recommendations before Congress, and would stand almost no chance of success.
OBAMA: Discussing his health care initiative, he said, "Our approach would preserve the right of Americans who have insurance to keep their doctor and their plan."
THE FACTS: The Democratic legislation now hanging in limbo on Capitol Hill aims to keep people with employer-sponsored coverage - the majority of Americans under age 65 - in the plans they already have. But Obama can't guarantee people won't see higher rates or fewer benefits in their existing plans. Because of elements such as new taxes on insurance companies, insurers could change what they offer or how much it costs. Moreover, Democrats have proposed a series of changes to the Medicare program for people 65 and older that would certainly pinch benefits enjoyed by some seniors. The Congressional Budget Office has predicted cuts for those enrolled in private Medicare Advantage plans.
OBAMA: The president issued a populist broadside against lobbyists, saying they have "outsized influence" over the government. He said his administration has "excluded lobbyists from policymaking jobs." He also said it's time to "require lobbyists to disclose each contact they make on behalf of a client with my administration or Congress" and "to put strict limits on the contributions that lobbyists give to candidates for federal office."
THE FACTS: Obama has limited the hiring of lobbyists for administration jobs, but the ban isn't absolute; seven waivers from the ban have been granted to White House officials alone. Getting lobbyists to report every contact they make with the federal government would be difficult at best; Congress would have to change the law, and that's unlikely to happen. And lobbyists already are subject to strict limits on political giving. Just like every other American, they're limited to giving $2,400 per election to federal candidates, with an overall ceiling of $115,500 every two years.
OBAMA: "Because of the steps we took, there are about 2 million Americans working right now who would otherwise be unemployed. ... And we are on track to add another one and a half million jobs to this total by the end of the year."
THE FACTS: The success of the Obama-pushed economic stimulus that Congress approved early last year has been an ongoing point of contention. In December, the administration reported that recipients of direct assistance from the government created or saved about 650,000 jobs. The number was based on self-reporting by recipients and some of the calculations were shown to be in error.
The Congressional Budget Office has been much more guarded than Obama in characterizing the success of the stimulus plan. In November, it reported that the stimulus increased the number of people employed by between 600,000 and 1.6 million "compared with what those values would have been otherwise." It said the ranges "reflect the uncertainty of such estimates." And it added, "It is impossible to determine how many of the reported jobs would have existed in the absence of the stimulus package."
OBAMA: He called for action by the White House and Congress "to do our work openly, and to give our people the government they deserve."
THE FACTS: Obama skipped past a broken promise from his campaign - to have the negotiations for health care legislation broadcast on C-SPAN "so that people can see who is making arguments on behalf of their constituents, and who are making arguments on behalf of the drug companies or the insurance companies." Instead, Democrats in the White House and Congress have conducted the usual private negotiations, making multibillion-dollar deals with hospitals, pharmaceutical companies and other stakeholders behind closed doors. Nor has Obama lived up consistently to his pledge to ensure that legislation is posted online for five days before it's acted upon.
OBAMA: "The United States and Russia are completing negotiations on the farthest-reaching arms control treaty in nearly two decades."
THE FACTS: Despite insisting early last year that they would complete the negotiations in time to avoid expiration of the 1991 Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty in early December, the U.S. and Russia failed to do so. And while officials say they think a deal on a new treaty is within reach, there has been no breakthrough. A new round of talks is set to start Monday. One important sticking point: disagreement over including missile defense issues in a new accord. If completed, the new deal may arguably be the farthest-reaching arms control treaty since the original 1991 agreement. An interim deal reached in 2002 did not include its own rules on verifying nuclear reductions.
OBAMA: Drawing on classified information, he claimed more success than his predecessor at killing terrorists: "And in the last year, hundreds of al-Qaida's fighters and affiliates, including many senior leaders, have been captured or killed - far more than in 2008."
THE FACTS: It is an impossible claim to verify. Neither the Bush nor the Obama administration has published enemy body counts, particularly those targeted by armed drones in the Pakistan-Afghanistan border region. The pace of drone attacks has increased dramatically in the last 18 months, according to congressional officials briefed on the secret program.
Democratic anger goes public in prime time. Republicans hold back from another 'You Lie' moment in an Obama speech filled with so many lies...
Associated Press Writer= WASHINGTON (AP) — The Democrat-vs.-Democrat anger roiling the ranks of Congress is being wrapped in smiles and standing ovations Wednesday as President Barack Obama outlines the nation's top priorities in his first State of the Union speech.
But for most of the Democrats cramming the House chamber, there is no issue more pressing than getting re-elected in November. And it's not clear that pursuing Obama's priorities will help them achieve theirs.
In personal and profane terms, House and Senate Democrats have huddled behind closed doors to list the debacles: The stunner in Massachusetts that cost the Democrats a Senate seat. The slow-motion collapse of health care talks. A government bailout of Wall Street while unemployment sits in double-digits.
"It just stinks to the high heaven what happened here," Rep. Stephen Lynch, D-Mass., railed earlier in the day at Obama's treasury secretary, Timothy Geithner.
He was talking about the bailout, but the statement could well describe the Democrats' attitude about Obama's performance and the toll it's taken on their political standing. And Wednesday night, they were expected to put on a smile and applaud a president and an agenda many have questioned.
Republicans were making a studied effort to stay out of the way and avoid a "You lie" moment that stole the show during Obama's last address to Congress. The House's three top Republican leaders — Reps. John Boehner of Ohio, Eric Cantor of Virginia and Mike Pence of Indiana — all lectured their troops before the address that the president should be treated with respect.
Democrats for days were questioning whether to stand with the president, congressional leaders or neither.
Rep. Dina Titus, D-Nev., did more than ask. In a private meeting the day after Republican Scott Brown won Sen. Edward Kennedy's Senate seat, Titus used a profanity to describe to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and freshman lawmakers the Democratic Party's prospects in the midterm elections if it ignores the lessons of Massachusetts.
Some House Democrats have privately blamed Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who faces a tough re-election fight in Nevada, for the party's woes and the health care bill's poor prospects.
"We have to wait for the House of Lords to do their contemplating," said Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y. "We're also not getting much guidance from the mother ship about what the White House really wants and what they're prepared to push for."
The administration has not stayed above the blamefest.
Rep. Marion Berry, D-Ark., who is retiring at the end of the year, said of Obama what some Americans have said all year, "'You're trying to do too much too quickly.'"
"Maybe we should listen to them," Berry said. "If we don't listen to them, then they will make you listen to them in November."

OBAMA'S STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS, LIES, LIES AND MORE LIES. IT WAS ENOUGH TO MAKE YOU WANT TO PUKE...ESPECIALLY PELOSI...WE HAVE THE LIES...
What in the world is this disgraceful Speaker of the House doing? Well, she's doing it again. She looks like she's trying to dodge something....
CON ARTIST 101- Oh God where do you start? Is it Nancy Pelosi, the mentally retarded Speaker of the House and most despised political figure in America standing up and clapping every 5 seconds, or is it Obama's compulsive lies flying out of his grill every time it's opened about the great sucess of his failed Presidencey. Maybe it's the elites wearing suits in the audience who stand up and applaud with Pelosi knowing Obama's a lying sack of shit and a con artist.
Obama State of the union - Lies and Lies and Lies
Obama has some nerve. Does he think the american people are idiots, ok they are some idiots out there.
Lets do some fact checking here.
1) Banks caused the economic crisis. FALSE!!! The congress a few years ago passed a mortgage reform bill that forced banks to loan money to people even if they did not qualify. Yes I said forced. The banks were required to provide these loans or face prosecution. Now when a whole bunch of of idiots buy into a mortgage that they can only afford for a few years and then give it up for foreclosure, the banks lose money.
Most of these mortgages were insured by the "EVIL" AIG. AIG had to pay out money to the banks to cover these failed mortgages, except that AIG invested money into real estate too, so when it all started to collapse they lost on both ends. Then they went bankrupt, leaving a ton of private mortgage insurance claims unpaid. Which meant the banks took the hit.
Currently there are no PMI programs available so to get a mortgage you need at least 20% down, and in some areas 40% down payments are required or even higher. New mortgage rules went into effect, thanks to the government, that make it even harder to get a mortgage now. In fact about 50% of the mortgage brokers lost their license on Jan 1, 2010 because they could no longer qualify to be mortgage brokers. So forget the home buyers credit, it is irrelevant because this government has made it impossible to get a loan. Add to that new rules for appraisers that almost guarantee that any property will appraise for less than it did even 3 months ago, and you have the recipe for a housing disaster. The worst is yet to come.
Did I mention George W. Bush at all in there???? He did sign the bill into law that required the banks to make these bad loans but he would have been "stopping progress" if he hadn't. Damned if you do damned if you don't. He has some share of the blame to, he was a weak leader. When Obama lays it all at Bush's feet or the banks feet he is ignoring his own involvement and lying to people.
2) Republicans prevented Health Care reform from passing. FALSE!!!! Democrats had a supermajority in both houses of congress and still could not get a healthcare reform bill passed.
3) Government needs to be Open. True I agree. However, Obama has done little to open it. In fact the health care bill is so long and complicated that nobody really understands it. Further Obama and the democrats wanted to pass it before the public was allowed to read it. What are they hiding? They negotiated behind closed doors. They chastised anyone who opposed them and called them radical extremists and even racists. Is this how an open and free society debates public policy??? At least noone has been put in prison for opposing the views of King Obama, yet.
4) Obama is ending the Iraq war. FALSE. Bush had set up the conditions for withdrawal long before Obama was elected. Obama, if anything, has extended our stay there. During the campaign he promised to withdraw within the first 100 days. One year later he is calling for complete withdrawal by the end of his term.
5) Millions will lose health insurance. Hopefully this is False. Most Americans have employer provided insurance. If they lose their job they lose the insurance provided by that employer or have to pay outrageous cobra costs. If Obama keeps screwing with the economy and the banks, millions more may lose their jobs so this could be a self fulfilling prophecy. I hope not.
6) He will go through the budget line by line. Maybe. But in the end I bet he will select lines based on political expediency and not base it on what is right for the country. In the end it is congress's authority to appropriate money. The Line item veto has not been challenged in the supreme court yet because it has not been used. If challenged I suspect that the court will decide it is unconstitutional.
7) The bipartisan fiscal commission. LIES. The president does not have the constitutional authority to force congress to create the commission. Even if he could set it up how would the deadline be enforced? What would happen if the commission failed to recommend a course of action? Would Obama declare that congress is no longer effective and dismiss them as happens in other countries? Would King Obama and his Czars then be free to rule this country without any checks or balances?
8) Overwhelming scientific evidence of global warming. The evidence was tampered with and evidence that did not support global warming was destroyed. Another study showed that some glacier ( name escapes me now) would be melted by 2037 . It was a typo it should have said 2370. OOPS. I am all for find ways to reduce the consumption of our natural resources but lets not panic. We as a planet need to find new energy sources or make current clean energy cost effective. When we rush into a decision we often make the wrong decision. So lets all take a deep breath and relax. It is OK, there is still oxygen in the air despite what the scientific evidence says....READ MORE...

This entire Obama administration is a total fraud. It is amazing to anyone with a functioning brain how this President has more than a 5% approval rating after all of the damage he has done in just one year, in addition to his 100% proven lies and deception. These current Obama supporters are really sad and pathetic. Living in denial might be a sign they need a psychiatrist...
NOW (National Organization of Ugly Liberal Women With Mental Disorders) Attack Football Star Tim Tebow! Sarah Palin Responds and Clobbers NOW
David Schuster is such a 'progressive putz' and sniveling sissy. He is far from objective and hasn't even seen the commercial, yet he's yelling and talking down the pro-life guest. Erin Matson is just a 'creepy' deranged liberal...
Women's Groups Blast 'Divisive' Pro-Life Super Bowl Ad -- Without Even Seeing It
College football phenom Tim Tebow is about to become one of the biggest stars of Super Bowl XLIV — and he's not even playing in the game.
Tebow, the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback for the University of Florida, and his mother Pam will appear in a pro-life commercial that tells the story of his risky birth 22 years ago -- an ad that critics suggest could lead to anti-abortion violence, even though none of them have seen it.
The 30-second spot, paid for by the conservative Christian group Focus on the Family, is expected to recount the story of Pam Tebow's turbulent pregnancy in 1987:
When Tebow suffered from a dangerous infection during a mission trip to the Philippines, doctors recommended that she terminate her pregnancy, fearing she might die in childbirth. But she carried Tim to term, and he went on to win the 2007 Heisman Trophy and guide the Florida Gators to two BCS championships.
It's a happy story with an inspirational ending, but pro-choice critics say Focus on the Family should not be allowed to air the commercial because it advocates on behalf of a divisive issue and threatens to "throw women under the bus." READ MORE...
If we could only line up 11 liberals on defense and let Tim Tebow drop his shoulder and put every single one of them on their back...it would be awesome...
Women's Rights Groups: Your Double Standard is Showing By Sarah Palin
Women’s Rights groups, like NOW, commendably call out advertisers and networks for airing sexist and demeaning portrayals of women that lead to young women’s diminished self-esteem and acceptance of roles as mere sexed-up objects.
What a ridiculous situation they’re getting themselves into now with their protest of CBS airing a pro-life ad during the upcoming Super Bowl game. The ad will feature Heisman trophy winner Tim Tebow and his mom, and they’ll speak to the sanctity of life and the beautiful potential within every innocent child as Mrs. Tebow acknowledges her choice to give Tim life, despite less than ideal circumstances. Messages like this empower women! This speaks to the strength and commitment and nurturing spirit within women. The message says everything positive and nothing negative about the power of women – and life. Evidently, some women’s rights groups like NOW do not like that message.
NOW is looking at the pro-life issue backwards. Women should be reminded that they are strong enough and smart enough to make decisions that allow for career and educational opportunities while still giving their babies a chance at life. In my own home, my daughter Bristol has also been challenged by pro-abortion “women’s rights” groups who don’t agree with her decision to have her baby, nor do they like the abstinence message which she articulated as her personal commitment. NOW could gain ground and credibility with everyday Americans, thus allowing their pro-women message to be heard by more than just their ardent supporters, if they made wiser decisions regarding which battles to pick. They should call attention to and embrace the Tebow’s message, instead of covertly and overtly disrespecting what Mrs. Tebow, Bristol, and millions of other women have chosen to do (in less than ideal circumstances).
My message to these groups who are inexplicably offended by a pro-woman, pro-child, pro-life message airing during the Super Bowl: please concentrate on empowering women, help with efforts to prevent unexpected pregnancies, stay consistent with your message that for too long women have been made to feel like sex objects in our “modern” culture and that we can expect better in 2010. But don’t let your double standard glare so vividly as to undo some of the good to which you could contribute. Read more here.

The 'Hideous' Anita Dunn Lies On CBS: GOP ‘Walked Away’ From Obama’s Outreach On Healthcare. Is That What Her 'Mentor' Mao Tse Tung Would Say?
Is this radical communist serious? The GOP has been shut out since day one! Most of the country knows this already.

Evidently Obama has forgotten to use his scalpel. As he says repeatedly in this video he would use a scalpel to cut spending instead of the hatchet of a spending freeze. Well Obama has cut nothing out of any budget. Instead he has spent and spent and spent. His reckless spending has caused people to become concerned about the growing debt and huge deficits.

FAIR & BALANCED! Fox News Has Most Viewers On All Of Cable TV In Prime Time Last Week. Poll: FOX News Most Trusted. 'Hey Libbs, Nah Nah Nah Nah Nah'
Back in July, Fox News SVP Bill Shine told Mediaite the network had a new goal – not just be the best cable news network, but be the top cable network overall. “We have news events that pop up and you never know when that will happen,” said Shine. “It’s difficult but we’ll see if we can do it.”
For the first time since the 2008 Election, Fox News was #1 on all of cable last week.
FNC topped USA Network (the usual #1) in prime time, with FNC averaging 3,213,000 viewers last week and USA averaging 3,194,000. No other network came close. In cable news competition, CNN ranked 22nd (980,000) and MSNBC was 25th (761,000).
In total today, FNC finished 3rd. CNN was 19th and MSNBC 31st.
There were some major news events that contributed to FNC’s big win, with the Massachusetts election Tuesday night and Haiti coverage throughout the week. But the victory was notable – FNC hasn’t been #1 since the week of November 3, 2008, and it shows just how competitive the network can be when going head-to-head with non-news cable entities.
They won’t be able to sustain the #1 spot on a regular basis yet, but this puts them in the discussion. And that’s as impressive as it is surprising.
FOX NEWS 'MOST TRUSTED'
Americans do not trust the major tv news operations in the country- except for Fox News.
Our newest survey looking at perceptions of ABC News, CBS News, CNN, Fox News, and NBC News finds Fox as the only one that more people say they trust than distrust. 49% say they trust it to 37% who do not.
CNN does next best at a 39/41 spread, followed by NBC at 35/44, CBS at 32/46, and ABC at 31/46.
Predictably there is a lot of political polarization in which outlets people trust. 74% of Republicans trust Fox News, but no more than 23% trust any of the other four sources. We already knew that conservatives don't trust the mainstream media but this data is a good prism into just how deep that distrust runs.
For Democrats the numbers are a complete opposite- a majority trust all of ABC, CBS, CNN, and NBC while only 30% have faith in Fox News. Continuing the trend in our polling over the last few months that independents hate everything, a plurality of them distrust all five outlets we looked at.
NBC is the most popular choice among Democrats at a 62/17 spread. Although 'NBC News' was the entity named in the question it's possible respondents could have been lumping MSNBC in with it given the good numbers on the left. At a 17/69 spread CBS was the least popular with Republicans, perhaps indicating residual unhappiness from the Dan Rather days. CNN finished second among Democrats, Republicans, and independents suggesting that it may be the least polarizing of the major tv news operations.
These numbers suggest quite a shift in what Americans want from their news. A generation ago Walter Cronkite was the most trusted man in the country because of his neutrality. Now people trust Fox the most precisely because of its lack of neutrality. It says a lot about where journalism is headed.
Mentally disturbed liberals like Janeane Garafolo appearing as a regular guest on 'Countdown' is one reason no one trusts MSNBC.
Ignoring important stories until after FOX already reports them along with Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton appearing on CNN to comment on 'manufactured' racism is a good reason CNN isn't to trustworthy. Some other reasons these networks can't be trusted is because they employ people like Chris Matthews, David Schuster, Susan Roegan, Contessa Brewer, Rachael Maddow, Ed Schultz, Keith Olbermann, Katie Couric, Brian Williams, Diane Sawyer and Joy Baher.
Liberals in the mainstream media have tainted and destroyed the title 'journalist' which is why no one trusts these clowns. On FOX news, even the liberals and moderate democrats are fair and tolerable. You won't find that on CNN, NBC, MSNBC, CBS or ABC.

In the VIDEO below, Obama lies again saying they created or saved (lol) 2 million jobs! The truth is that since Obama became President, we have lost about 3 million jobs while spending trillions to create them. WTF?!?
Not only is Obama a con artist, he's a terrible one. People who support Obama need to get a life. It's really pathetic to watch....
OBAMA: I Didn't Make Backroom Deals, Congress Did (You Lie!) Interview With Diane Sawyer, Obama Calls Not Living Up To Transparency Promise 'Mistake'
No bias here right? Totally objective journalism! Diane Sawyer is pathetic and the stink of liberal 'white guilt' must have Obama holding his breath...
In Diane Sawyer's interview with President Obama today, she asked him if going forward all the conversations should be on C-SPAN.
"I think your question points out to a legitimate mistake that I made during the course of the year," the president said, "and that is that we had to make so many decisions quickly in a very difficult set of circumstances that after awhile, we started worrying more about getting the policy right than getting the process right.
"But I had campaigned on process," the president continued. "Part of what I had campaigned on was changing how Washington works, opening up transparency and I think it is -- I think the health care debate as it unfolded legitimately raised concerns not just among my opponents, but also amongst supporters that we just don't know what's going on. And it's an ugly process and it looks like there are a bunch of back room deals.
Mr. Obama said, "I think it's my responsibility -- and I'll be speaking to this at the State of the Union -- to own up to the fact that the process didn't run the way I ideally would like it to and that we have to move forward in a way that recaptures that sense of opening things up more."

NOTE- Obama has made MANY backroom deals with the SEIU, AARP, Wall Street, Big Pharma, the AMA, GE-NBC, and MANY others. Give us a break.
