What the hell? We are buying MILITARY equipment from the Chinese? This is wrong on so many levels!
A fictitious company set up by U.S. government investigators bought 16 electronic parts for weapons from China online and every single item was counterfeit, according to a Government Accountability Office investigation as reported by Reuters.
The congressional Government Accountability Office (GAO) published the report at the behest of the Department of Defense (DOD) because “counterfeit parts—generally the misrepresentation of parts’ identity or pedigree—can seriously disrupt the DOD supply chain, harm weapon systems integrity, and endanger troops’ lives.”
The problem is that “almost anything is at risk of being counterfeited, from fasteners used on aircraft to electronics used on missile guidance systems. There can be many sources of counterfeit parts as DOD draws from a large network of global suppliers,” according to the report.
Just what would President Barack Obama do in a second term if had maximum “flexibility”? Consider his first term: Even though Obama was elected along with huge Democratic majorities in the House and Senate, he didn’t really get everything he wanted in 2009 and 2010. If he had, the stimulus would’ve been twice as big, healthcare reform would’ve included a public option, and a cap-and-trade scheme would right now be killing America’s natural gas revolution in the cradle.
So what about a second term? Well, a new budget proposal from liberal House Democrats suggests what Obama’s “dream agenda” might be. And if Rep. Paul Ryan’s budget plan is the “Path to Prosperity,” the Congressional Progressive Caucus has offered the “Road to Ruin.”
Officially, the CPC calls the plan “The Budget for All” — and it’s all wrong. Sure, the proposal would theoretically cut the deficit from $1.1 trillion (7.0% of GDP) in 2012 to $180 billion (or 0.7% of GDP) in 2022. But the CPC would accomplish this feat entirely through massive and economy-crippling tax increases.
Very early on in Obama’s term, March 18, 2009,I wrote a post entitled, Outrage After Outrage After Outrage in an attempt to convey my shock and awe at the dizzying rate in which Obama was enacting his destructive agenda.
How can I take a break from politics, and write about light hearted and interesting stories in the news, if virtuallyeverything the man does is an embarrassment and/or God-awful violation of everything patriotic Americans hold dear?
Well it’s been outrage after outrage after outrage for the past three years, as Obama’s Chicago machine hs usurped congressional and constitutional authority and ineffectual Republicans have done little to stop it.
Via Radio Patriot, here’s a hard hitting essay from former Navy Seal, Benjamin Smith, now, a writer, speaker, political strategist and ardent Constitutionalist. Benjamin is a regular contributor to several news outlets including Breitbart and Fox News.
It is his opinion that everything is coming to a head.
On the heels of NDAA, ObamaCare, Stimulus, Son of Stimulus, Patriot Act, takeover of auto, energy, media and movie industries, and the relentless implementation of Agenda 21… the Obama regime running our country into the ground has issued an updated Executive Order which suggests the probability of impending MARTIAL LAW.
We are left to scratch our heads and ask……… Why now?
America is in fact, right now, in the vicious throes of a Cold Civil War.
Cold as in non-violent and Civil as in nationwide; an attempt to force a new government-controlled ideology upon an unwilling public.
And the forces implementing this agenda are relentless.
The National Defense Resources Preparedness Executive Order is nothing more than a blatant attempt to stir trouble of the highest intensity. The regime is looking to see who jumps and to see the movement that happens amongst the most vocal defenders of our rights, (you and me). They are poking us to see if we will go over the edge and do something so stupid that there will be a crisis… it will be our fault… and if any of our number are provoked enough to rise to the proverbial bait — they will finally lower the hammer… all in the name of “national security and public safety.”
These are classic Soviet style tactics designed and implemented in an effort to make us react, get us to either flinch and shut up, or overreact and get suppressed. It is also an exercise so they can gather intel on who is who and who has pull.
Many of us are trained. We know this game.
J. Christian Adams says that it is a felony in the state of Florida to solicit kidnapping but the New Black Panthers don’t care because they believe they are above the law. Why? He says Eric Holder is to blame for not prosecuting them in the past.
He also said that it was completely inappropriate for Obama to weigh in on a criminal matter using racial code.

### They haven’t even come to a decision and already MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow is suggesting that the John Robert’s Supreme Court may politicize its decision and rule against Obamacare just to hurt the president (via Mediaite): See the greatest jornalist (appointed by the worst comedian Letterman) is starting up the old race card! You see, if the Supreme Court drops Obamacare? You will see the left call those who voted to eliminate obamacare racists! ### Damn,. soon kids won’t be able to speak at all in school! Taking political correctness to new extremes, the New York City Department of Education has banned the following words from tests (this is a non-exhaustive list):
birthday – could be offensive to Jehovah’s Witnesses Halloween – references Paganism dinosaur – reference to evolution dancing – offensive to students whose religion bans dancing (references to ballet dance won’t be affected) home computers – reference to economic disparity amongst students
50 words have been removed in total, according to ABC. The Department of Education says that this is necessary to avoid ‘appearing biased’. According to a Department of Education spokeswoman, banning these words is a way for “students to complete practice exams without distraction”. ### Another show on television I liked. ### Ah, the old leftist spin being used now! (Free Beacon) — The Obama administration is now referring to Obamacare as a “bi-partisan bill” and calling the unpopular individual mandate “a Republican idea,” following three days of tough questioning by the Supreme Court. “The Affordable Care Act is a bipartisan plan and one that we think is constitutional,” Deputy White House press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters on Wednesday afternoon. No Republican voted for the Affordable Care Act on final passage. He also referred to the individual mandate as the “individual responsibility” clause of the bill, in an attempt to distance the administration from the term individual mandate. “The administration remains confident that the Affordable Care Act is constitutional; one of the reasons for that is that the original personal responsibility clause . . . was a conservative idea,” he said. Conservatives have blasted the administration for the individual mandate and only one Republican voted for Obamacare in both houses of the legislature. ### This is why no one read the damn thing before the vote! Should be a law, no voting on any bill that everyone has not read completely. Scalia: Reading entire health care law would be cruel and unusual punishment ### ### Video footage obtained by The Daily Caller appears to show a group of women dressed in purple Service Employees International Union-branded clothing, discussing how much they were paid to attend a March 27 protest outside the Supreme Court. The video first appeared online Wednesday.
