Another Expensive White House Party

April 9, 2013

Another expensive WH party
Posted by Staff

The Weekly Standard reports:
As the White House has previously announced, Justin Timberlake (who will be making his White House debut), Al Green, Ben Harper, Queen Latifah, Cyndi Lauper, Joshua Ledet, Sam Moore, Charlie Musselwhite, Mavis Staples, and others will be performing at the exclusive event.
But while the performers are known, the guest list for the private event has not yet been released.
One imagines it’s a tough ticket to come by. To attend any event at the White House, one must be invited. (The White House is now closed for public access by members of the general public.) And especially this one, with Hollywood and musical stars–and with remarks by the president of the United States.

CNN Poll–Most disapprove of Obama on guns

CNN Poll: Most Disapprove of Obama on Guns
Posted by Staff

ABC News reports:
Most Americans disapprove of how President Obama has handled gun-policy issues, a new poll from CNN finds.
The president has been pushing new limits on gun ownership since the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut last year captured the nation’s attention and spurred calls for new laws from Democratic members of Congress. The president will travel today to Connecticut to renew that push, as agreement between Republicans and Democrats in both chambers of Congress has been scarce.
CNN and Opinion Research Corp. found that 45 percent approve of Obama’s handling of “gun policy,” while 52 percent disapprove.
It’s unclear why, exactly: CNN didn’t ask respondents whether they’re disappointed with the president because they oppose the gun-control measures he has advocated, or because he hasn’t yet succeeded in enacting new laws.
A mix of the two reasons is the likeliest explanation.

Obama Spend-o-rama!

Spend-o-rama! Obama to unveil $3.77 T spending plan
Posted by Staff

The Washington Post reports:
President Obama plans Wednesday to unveil a $3.77 trillion spending plan that proposes modest new investments in infrastructure and education, major new taxes for the wealthy and significant reforms aimed at reducing the cost of Social Security and Medicare.
As Washington barrels toward another potential showdown over the federal debt limit later this summer, administration officials said the blueprint lays down the president’s bottom-line offer for getting federal borrowing under control.
“We don’t view this budget as a starting point in the negotiations. This is an offer where the president came more than halfway toward the Republicans,” a senior administration official told reporters Tuesday, speaking on condition of anonymity to detail the forthcoming document.

MSNBC–yet another reason to hate it

MSNBC’s Touré founded militant anti-white student paper
Posted by Staff

The Daily Caller reports:
MSNBC host Touré founded a student newspaper dedicated to black liberation theology while he was a college student attending Emory University from 1989 to 1992.
Touré’s flagship publication, The Fire This Time, lavished praise on famous anti-Semites, black supremacists, and conspiracy theorists whom Touré helped bring to campus. Before he became an intense-but-sardonic TV personality, Touré also decried “the suffocating white community” and defended a nationally famous fake hate crime.
In an interview with The Daily Caller, Touré described the newspaper as “an important black voice on campus” and “a form of community building.”

Catholics & Evangelicals labeled "religious extremists" by US Army

The U.S. Army listed Evangelical Christianity and Catholicism as examples of religious extremism along with Al Qaeda and Hamas during a briefing with an Army Reserve unit based in Pennsylvania, Fox News has learned.
“We find this offensive to have Evangelical Christians and the Catholic Church to be listed among known terrorist groups,” said Ron Crews, executive director of the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty. “It is dishonorable for any U.S. military entity to allow this type of wrongheaded characterization.”
The incident occurred during an Army Reserve Equal Opportunity training brief on extremism. Topping the list is Evangelical Christianity. Other organizations listed included Catholicism, Al Qaeda, Hamas, the Ku Klux Klan, Sunni Muslims, and Nation of Islam.
The military also listed “Islamophobia” as a form of religious extremism.

Student: Teachers Bully Me Because I’m Conservative

    A Wisconsin school district has launched an investigation into accusations that teachers have bullied and harassed a politically active student.

    Benji Backer, a 15-year-old student at Appleton North High School in Appleton, told me that he’s been subjected to name-calling, foul-language and classroom lectures that bashed Gov. Scott Walker and labeled Republicans as racist:

    “They are harassing and bullying me as well as indoctrinating other students,” Backer said. The 15-year-old wrote about his allegations in great detail in an essay first published by FreedomWorks.

    “My teachers have always talked about bullying, including bullying homosexuals and how wrong it is,” Backer wrote. “I agree 100 percent. They shouldn’t be bullied, nor should anyone else.”

    Backer wrote that if homosexuals can get equal treatment, why can’t conservative students?

    “If teachers expect bullying to end with homosexuals, they should want it to end with every type of bullying possible, including political views,” he wrote.

    Ben Vogel, an assistant superintendent for the Appleton school district, tells me they have launched an investigation into Backer’s allegations and they are taking it seriously.

    “I’m always going to be concerned when a student comes and shares that they feel they are being treated unfairly in a classroom,” Vogel said. “We want all students to feel like they are safe at their school and in the individual classes.”

    Backer’s allegations came during a period of time of great political unrest in Wisconsin. Gov. Scott Walker was battling the teachers union and afterwards an unsuccessful recall petition.

    Nevertheless, Vogel said that’s no excuse for teachers trying to indoctrinate students.

    “We have school board policy regarding political activity in the classroom – when it’s appropriate and when it’s not appropriate,” he said. “We will follow up and make sure our teachers are doing what they need to be doing and if they’re not – then we will follow up accordingly.”

    One of the more egregious episodes allegedly occurred in Backer’s English class. He said his teacher would use classroom lectures to rail against Walker – and soon – the teacher turned on the 15-year-old.

    “He was swearing and saying how wrong it was for anyone to support Scott Walker,” Backer wrote. “Students were telling him to stop, and he wouldn’t.”

    Backer was the Wisconsin co-chair for Young Americans for Mitt Romney. He was also featured in a USA Today story about the November election.

    Obama KILLS Americans

    Posted by Judson Phillips on April 5, 2013 at 7:12am in Tea Party Nation Forum

     

    Barack Obama is killing Americans.

    That is a serious charge to make.   But it is true.  Obama and his regime are killing Americans today.

    How is this happening?

    It is the Sequester.

    Specificially the Obama Regime has stopped paying Oncologists for certain expensive chemotherapy and cancer fighting drugs. 

    On April 1, Medicare reduced its funding to pay for these drugs, citing the Sequester as the reason.  As a result, cancer patients are being turned away from doctors and hospitals. 

    It is hard to fault the Doctors for this.  It is a matter of simple economics.  If the drugs cost more than they are reimbursed by the government, they will quickly go out of business.

    This is the fault of the Obama Regime. 

    The budget sequester they are screaming about is only cutting $85 billion from the budget.  This does not even eliminate the increase in spending from the previous year. 

    The Federal Budget is $3.5 trillion and this is only $85 billion.

    Since Barack Obama does not want to cut any spending, he is trying to make the spending cuts as painful as possible

    While the Sequester has been looming, the Obama family has been taking vacations.  Just this past week, the Obama daughters went on a spring break tour that included the Bahamas and the ski slopes of Idaho.  

    That trip cost the taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars at a minimum and perhaps it ran into the millions.  This was at least the fourth family vacation for the Obama’s this year alone.  Meanwhile Joe Biden went on a spring break vacation too.

    Here’s a question the Obama Propaganda media will not ask.  How many people could have received their cancer treatments if the Obamas had simply stayed in Washington?

    How many cancer treatments could have been paid for if Joe Biden has skipped his vacation?

    The government is riddled with massive amounts of waste and fraud.  Fraud from hurricane relief from Katrina has run over two billion.  The government spent almost half a million dollars to teach people correct condom use.

    Yet the Regime and the Congress do nothing to cut this wasteful spending.

    Despite the sequester, while American cancer patients are now being denied treatment and some of them will die, the Obama Regime is giving $250 million to Egypt.   While that is going on, the Regime is giving $500 million to the Palestinians.  They aren’t even a nation.

    The government recently spent $27 million on Moroccan Pottery classes!

    Meanwhile thousands of cancer patients are facing the loss of their ability to be treated while Obama acts more like a king than a President.  With three vacations for him, plus a spring break vacation for his daughters and three vacations for Joe Biden, the Regime acts as if nothing is wrong.  Air Force One costs $181,000 an hour to operate.   While Americans die from cancer that is not being treated, Obama flies off to places like San Francisco so he can raise funds for the Party of Treason.

    During the campaign, the Obama team accused Mitt Romney of being responsible for a woman’s death from cancer.  That story was disproved.  This is a real instanc

    e of where people are going to die from cancer and this is the fault of the Obama Regime.

    The media will not call Obama out on this.

    The question is, will the Republicans?
