Took my lovely wife and her sister (I call both of the the kindle women, because they are always using their kindles) to a nice champagne lunch. Great prime rib as usual! And yes, had 3 thick slabs of nice rare prime rib! Bypass all the other meats and meat dishes. Except for the breaded shrimp as they made a good side to the prime rib. Now the women do not drink, so I got all the mimosas to myself as usual. Now this weird as we go to the casino to eat and they instituted a new rule for the restaurant last month (same rule they have always had down in the casino itself) where one can only have one mimosa, or other alcoholic drink, every 20 minutes. This is so people won’t get drunk. So I broke their rule! Had the 3 mimosas and then asked for more! Waitress checked and said, okay your 20 minutes are up! Thus 6 in about 40 minutes or so for me! After eating, we headed into the bowels of the casino and after about 3 hours, lost our gambling money and came home.
For over a year now, the Department of Justice has been stone-walling the House committees investigating Operation Fast And Furious, wherein thousands of semi-automatic rifles (âassault riflesâ in the liberal lexicon) were deliberately allowed to âwalkâ into Mexico, straight into the hands of drug cartel killers. One of those weapons was used to murder Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry a dozen miles inside of U.S. territory.
The actual killer is believed to be an FBI âinformant.â In other words, a cartel assassin in his own right, but also a valuable âassetâ in the FBIâs consideration. The FBI and DOJ have been shielding this killer, while obstructing the delivery of justice to the Brian Terry family. On the other side of the border, ICE Agent Jaime Zapata was also murdered with a âgun-walkedâ weapon, along with over three-hundred innocent Mexican citizens as of this date.
And where is the elite Mainstream Media in its coverage of this festering scandal of such epic proportions? Over the past year they have dedicated scant minutes to the scandal, and then, usually to parrot the Obama administrationâs lies and obfuscations. Just during one recent week, the elite media spent countless hours covering the death and funeral of a beloved celebrity drug addict, compared to the few minutes they have spent covering Operation Fast And Furious during all of the last year.
Under Operation Fast And Furious, and related DOJ-ATF gun-walking schemes in at least five states, there was no plan or means to track the weapons after their sale. Licensed gun dealers were coerced by the BATFE into making repeated bulk sales, even when they expressed grave concern about the persons buying the weapons, including known felons. Federal cash was provided to the straw purchasers when they did not have their own money.
As conceived and carried out, the intended purpose of Operation Fast and Furious was to rack up a bloody body count in Mexico, in order to discredit the Right to Keep and Bear Arms as spelled out in the Second Amendment of the Constitution. The murdered Mexicans were intended to buttress the false claim that ninety percent of the weapons recovered in Mexico after gangland shootings came from American gun dealers.
In short, the Obama administration conducted a program of mass murder for political purposes. Or, as President Obama put it to Sarah Brady, he was still pursuing a gun control agenda, but âunder the radar.â It is hard to conceive of a federal âlaw enforcement operationâ [sic] more evil from top to bottom than Operation Fast And Furious.
President Barack Obama on Sunday condemned the apparent killing of 16 Afghan civilians by an American soldier as “tragic and shocking” and vowed that the United States will “hold accountable anyone responsible,” as the bloody incident piled fuel on the fire of a crisis in sharply deteriorating relations.
More apologizing and groveling here
I don’t condone killing just for killing. But damn, a bit of perspective here. How many of our soldiers have been lost because of so called afghan civilians? Maybe that soldier had a buddy killed by an afghan civilian? There has to be more to this story than just the sensational part of a soldier killing civilians. And of course, our islamic buddy who happens to be president is apologizing and groveling yet again!
Kate Upton in slow motion Just watch, waste your time, and then watch again!
SlutsUnite.orgÂ What a joke!
You probably didnât hear this important headline because the liberal media is working hard to hide the facts about Obama miserable presidency. No mention at all about the largest monthly deficit that Obama added to the national debt this past February. Instead the media is talking about free birth control being a ârightâ and Rush Limbaugh calling a liberal activist a âslut.â Itâs the âdeflect attention from Obamaâ scheme and most are falling face-first for it.
Donât pay attention to the unemployment rate which is still above 8% for the 38 straight month. Donât pay attention to this being the 3rd year since Obama signed his stimulus and his economic team predicted a 6% unemployment rate. Donât pay attention to the 13 million jobs deficit. Donât pay attention toÂ the record amount Obama is adding to the national debt while producing higher unemployment, a worse housing situation, higher poverty, higher food stamp usage and higher gas prices. Donât pay attention to Obamaâs promise to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term or the fact that he has added more to the national debt than his 43 predecessors.
The media is dictating this presidential election again and most are allowing them to do it.
This is news to ME!!!
Here is another example of the Mainstream Media at work!
H.Con.Res 107 is the bill you need to google to read the exact wording.
Arizona sheriff finds Obama presidential qualifications forgedÂ Read it. And know that our media refuses to talk about this story!
And another sheriff, breaking the law, for the democrats of couse!
It was done by democrats. And a sheriff, to boot.
As the sheriff of Lincoln County, W.Va., Jerry Bowman is sworn to uphold the law. But the 58-year-old law enforcement veteran stood in a federal courtroom in Charleston on Wednesday and pleaded guilty in a shocking voter fraud case that has stripped him of his job and could send him to prison for a decade.
Prosecutors say Bowman and former Lincoln County Clerk Donald Whitten, 62, were part of a scheme to steal the May 2010 Democratic primary by stuffing ballot boxes with illegal absentee ballots.
Bowman admitted to falsifying more than 100 of the absentee ballot applications and even voting with some of the ballots himself, while Whitten, who also pleaded guilty Wednesday, acknowledged lying to investigators about the plan to try to throw the election.
âIt makes you mad,â said Charles Brumfield, who ran against Bowman for Lincoln County circuit clerk, about having the election stolen from him. âIt was hurtful. You just didnât think that would happen in todayâs society.â
Brumfield told Fox News that on election night, he was ahead by about 235 votes. That is, until additional batches of absentee ballots started mysteriously appearing, repeatedly, throughout the evening.
âWe knew something was wrong, because the post office closes at 4:30 âŠ you donât go to the post office at 9 oâclock at night and find ballots.â
But for several hours on election night, âThey kept coming out and saying âwe found some more ballotsâ âŠ and they did this about three times from 7 to 11 p.m., and when the final tally was taken, we lost,â Brumfield said.
Brumfield was suspicious leading up to election night because he says he heard that more then 800 absentee ballot applications had been requested for the race, nearly six times more than normal number. He took the case to court, and after a judge threw out more than 300 ballots, he was declared the winner and was sworn in as the Lincoln County circuit clerk.
âAn absentee ballot is a good thing, if itâs used correctly, the way itâs supposed to. And it wasnât used that way,â Brumfield said.

How many remember the early days of Houston Astros baseball?
Sometimes you can fight City Hall, or in this case,Â MajorÂ League Baseball.
Back in February, we told you about how the league had asked the Houston Astros to alter the look of one of the throwback jerseys the team was planning to wear this season to celebrate the teamâs 50th anniversary. The problem: the jersey of the Houston Colt .45s â the original name of the Astros â featured a smoking pistol.
But now, thanks to fans and gun enthusiasts who expressed their displeasure with MLBâs naked attempt to airbrush baseball history,Â the suits in New York have changed their minds. So when the Astros take the field at home in Houston on April 10 against theÂ Braves and again on April 20 against the Dodgers, theyâll do so in uniforms that look exactly like the ones the team wore in its inaugural season in 1962 â complete with a depiction of the Colt .45 Peacemaker, which is also known as âthe gun that helped win the West.â
More funny stuff HERE
Again, a previous post of mine brought this up and as of today, nothing newsworthy of these rocket attacks from our liberal press.
Why people canât draw correct conclusions about Obamaâs love of Islam and hatred for Israel is beyond me.
And this example where 100 missiles were fired into Israel by PLO members drew NO response from Obama. No demands it stop. No threats of cutting off aid.
But Israel merely mentions protecting itself from Iran and Obama is holding news conferences and meetings demanding they stop.
And the media, of course, silent about attacks on Israel by these vermin. But be on the lookout for the cries of self-righteous indignation if Israel retaliates.
Palestinians from northern Gaza fired rockets at Beersheba, Ashdod and Gan Yavne early Saturday morning as the Color Red alert was sounded across Israelâs southern cities.
The IDF estimates that some 100 rockets have been fired at Israel since Friday. Meanwhile, a new Israeli air strike in Gaza killed two Palestinians riding on a motorcyle, Hamas officials and medics said on Saturday.
The attack followed the firing of rockets at Israel at the weekend, raises the death toll in escalating violence since Friday to 15.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke over the phone with Ashkelon Mayor Benny Vaknin following the escalation in the south. Netanyahu expressed support and interest in the well-being of Ashkelon residents suffering from the ongoing rocket attacks on the city.
IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz held a special situation assessment on Saturday given the recent rocket attacks in the south. Officials decided that the IDF will respond with determination to any attack on Israel. The officials also praised the Iron Dome system which successfully managed to intercept rockets fired at southern communities.
Deputy IDF chief, Southern Command head, an Air Force official, Home Front Command head, Operational Branch head, IDF spokesman all took part in the meeting.
The Iron Dome has successfully intercepted 27 out of 30 rockets fired at Beersheba, Ashdod and Ashkelon. The other two rockets exploded in open fields.

Continuing to survive primarily on federal handouts and subsidies, the wind energy movement has recently come under fire.
While it is typically seen as a âcleanâ and âeco-friendlyâ alternative to fossil fuels, as the bird carcasses accumulate, the movement is starting to see closer scrutiny. According to Robert Bryce of the Wall Street Journal:
Over the past two decades, the federal government has prosecuted hundreds of cases against oil and gas producers and electricity producers for violating some of Americaâs oldest wildlife-protection laws: the Migratory Bird Treaty Act and Eagle Protection Act.
But the Obama administrationâlike the Bush administration before itâhas never prosecuted the wind industry despite myriad examples of widespread, unpermitted bird kills by turbines. A violation of either law can result in a fine of up to $250,000 and imprisonment for two yearsâŠ
Last June, the Los Angeles Times reported that about 70 golden eagles are being killed per year by the wind turbines at Altamont Pass, about 20 miles east of Oakland, Calif. A 2008 study funded by the Alameda County Community Development Agency estimated that about 2,400 raptors, including burrowing owls, American kestrels, and red-tailed hawksâas well as about 7,500 other birds, nearly all of which are protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Actâare being killed every year by the turbines at Altamont.
âŠBats are getting whacked, too. The Pennsylvania Game Commission estimates that wind turbines killed more than 10,000 bats in the state in 2010.ExxonMobil pleaded guilty in federal courtâŠto the deaths of 85 birds [not eagles] at its operations in several states, according to the Department of Justice. The birds were protected by the Migratory
Bird Treaty Act, and Exxon agreed to pay $600,000 in fines and fees. In July, the PacifiCorp utility of Oregon had to pay $10.5 million in fines, restitution and improvements to their equipment after 232 eagles were killed by running into power lines in Wyoming, according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
That is far fewer than the estimated 10,000 birds (nearly all protected by the migratory bird law) that are being killed every year at AltamontâŠDespite the deleterious effect that the windmills are having on wildlife, the wind industry is pushing to keep both its carte blanche and generous subsidies.
The “I want you all to feel good” of the day from the nut in charge of our country.
WASHINGTON (AP) â President Barack Obama is hitting back at Republican criticism of his energy policies and his role in controlling gasoline prices.
âIâm going to keep doing everything I can to help you save money on gas, both right now and in the future,â Obama said. âI hope politicians from both sides of the aisle join me.â
He accused Republicans of a âbumper stickerâ approach to solving the nationâs energy problems.
Itâs a familiar theme â Obama stuck many of the same chords during two out-of-town trips this week and during a White House news conference on Wednesday.
