Post in Which Jawa Report Supports President Obama's Freedom

To smoke em if he's got em.

President Obama, who claimed when he first entered the White House to have mostly kicked his nicotine habit, might have been caught on camera holding a pack of cigarettes.

The commander in chief is seen clutching a white object in a snapshot with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi posted Sunday on Instagram by Renzi's spokesman.

Although its likely that Shackleford will hassle him about that and any other habit that Rusty doesn't have. Any time the President wants to burn one just stop in the Sandcrawler we never listen to Rusty anyway.

Seriously, we are gonna need a bigger popcorn tub …
Those hoping to draw Joe Biden into launching the 2016 presidential race are looking to rev up support by getting others to imagine the 72-year-old former senator driving a Corvette.

Organizers behind the Draft Biden 2016 super-PAC have launched an online store around a “I’m ridin’ with Biden” logo depicting the vice president sporting aviator sunglasses while behind the wheel.

Yeah it seems crazy at first, until you realize.....

Former Illinois State Representative Keith Farnham(D) To Die in Prison

He wanted mercy.

Tribune:

Convicted child pornographer and former State Rep. Keith Farnham is at death’s door and should be allowed to die “with dignity” outside prison, his lawyer says.

The terminally-ill, 67-year-old Elgin Democrat was due to be sentenced on March 19 to a minimum of five years behind bars for sharing child porn online with other pedophiles.

But his attorney, Terry Ekl, says Farnham has terminal pulmonary fibrosis, bladder cancer and hepatitis C and is expected to die within four months. He filed court papers Friday asking U.S. District Judge Edmond Chang to postpone Farnham’s sentencing for six months — and to let Farnham stay at his home, under electronic monitoring, until he dies.

A doctor hired by Farnham, Karla Hudson, says Farnham won’t get the hospice care he needs in prison. Prison hospice beds are limited, and even if Farnham gets one, he will likely be denied the amount of painkillers he needs and will be kept from his family, Hudson wrote in a letter to the judge.

Farnham pleaded guilty in December, admitting he kept more than 2,700 illegal photos and videos on his work and home computers.

But the judge sent him to prison anyway.
As Farnham was wheeled to a waiting car, a bystander mocked, "Thanks for hurting Elgin. Thanks for letting us down."

Farnham declined to comment.

"It's a truly sad case all the way around," Ekl said.

Part of his sentence also requires Farnham to pay a $30,000 fine. He remains on home confinement until he reports for prison May 19.

Canadian: Red States' Success in Equality, Higher Wages, Economic Growth and Housing Affordability Raping American Dream

You didn't make that!

Blue states, like California, New York and Illinois, whose economies turn on finance, trade and knowledge, are generally richer than red states. But red states, like Texas, Georgia and Utah, have done a better job over all of offering a higher standard of living relative to housing costs. That basic economic fact not only helps explain why the nation’s electoral map got so much redder in the November midterm elections, but also why America’s prosperity is in jeopardy.
America's prosperity? Don't you mean that since we now have an anywhere economy Red States can compete against the crumbling depressing urban centers of decay?

I mean look at the list of problems.

Blue state knowledge economies are also extremely expensive to operate. Their innovative edge turns on a high-cost infrastructure of research universities and knowledge institutions — a portion of which demand public subsidy. Their size and density require expensive subway and transit systems to move people around. Blue state cities like New York and San Francisco are booming, but they are hampered by potholes and crumbling infrastructure, troubled public school systems, growing inequality and housing unaffordability, and entrenched poor populations, all of which mean higher public costs and higher tax burdens.
Business doesn't have to put up with that anymore, people don't have to live like that anymore, flyover country can and does compete.
here are many red states like Utah, Arizona and Texas that are growing their tech and knowledge economies,
So what you really have here is an article lamenting, How dare those illiterate uneducated Mississippi rednecks live better than we educated egalitarian overlords, We know what's best for you.

But if the liberal elites in the coasts know so well that Red State Success is a blight, its quite interesting because I've never heard of people running headstrong into a blight before.

If that’s the best argument you can come up with in opposition to living in Red States, we should all be packing our bags this morning to move to North Dakota.

Where's the Kaboom? Where's The Earth Shattering Kaboom?

Liberals thoughts betray them.

The U.S. beefed up security at embassies ahead of the CIA interrogation report's release in anticipation of a violent reaction. But around the globe, the response was relatively muted
I've heard tell that some think the release of the CIA report was timed to block out the Gruber testimony.

I don't really know about that. What I do know is that at a time when they are pushing domestic civil unrest that has not occurred in decades, the left also sought to throw gasoline on the fire and up the ante to world chaos.

And then they are disappointed when said world chaos and hatred of America protests didn't occur and our facilities were not attacked.

Is it just me or does intent not seem to be to add fuel to the domestic unrest as well as spread that movement overseas.

WTF Who's side are they on anyway?

What Obama Really Thinks of You

Fire Andrea Mitchell

Megyn Kelly on the Kelly File revealed a second video of ObamaCARE architect Jonathan Gruber calling the American voters stupid. This video is from October of last year and could have also been used in the mid-term elections this, but for whatever reason wasn’t. Here is the second video of Jonathan Gruber calling the American voter stupid. If you want to skip ahead in this video of Megyn Kelly’s earlier discussion, right the Gruber’s remarks, go to 2 minutes and 22 seconds.

I saw Mr. Gruber's MSNBC interview and all I can say is, Filed under Assmaggots.

Update: Johnathan Gruber thinks that "exploiting the lack of economic understanding of the American voter" is very clever politics.

At least this time we aren't stupid American voters. After a first video of Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber, talking about the bill being vague to fool stupid American Voters. And a second video outed last night by Megyn Kelly, below is video #3. This one from a speech at the University of Rhode Island in November 2012. This time he talks about then Senator, now Secretary of State John Kerry helping him take advantage of the economically unsophisticated American voter.

Which is why a Jury of American voters would probably send him to the gallows if they ever knew the truth. That the SUPPORTERS of Obamacare were intentionally misled, sold a bill of goods. That would neither help them nor anyone else.

Because the truth is that even though Mr. Gruber claims that if you get hit by a car you can go bankrupt, well no you can sue the driver. But even after Obamacare, even after you pay more, even after your subsidy, even after yout Obamacare plan pays you can still be bankrupt.

And the "evil insurance companies" still get theirs while you get the shaft.

So very clever.

As if filing bankruptcy and letting the provider claim the loss was a "worse" system.

Yes it was worse, because the healthcare system that sucked uop 18 percent of the economy will get just what they demanded from Obama to drop their opposition to Obamacare. Now they will get even more than 18% of the GDP and will get to keep more of that 18%. Obama sold you out to the healthcare industry and lied to YOU, telling you you would benefit when the only benefit was to the industry his wife Michelle worked in.

Sandcrawler PSA: Save the Trees

After all, a printed ballot that is not fraudulently filled out is a tree that died in vain.

Many liberals are adamant there is no threat of voter fraud that justifies efforts to improve the integrity of elections. “There is no real concrete evidence of voter fraud,” tweeted Donna Brazile, former acting chair of the Democratic National Committee, this week. “It’s a big ass lie.”

James O’Keefe, the guerilla filmmaker who brought down the ACORN voter-registration fraudsters in 2010 and forced the resignation of NPR executives, politely disagrees. Today, he is releasing some new undercover footage that raises disturbing questions about ballot integrity in Colorado, the site of fiercely contested races for the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House, and the governorship. When he raised the issue of filling out some of the unused ballots that are mailed to every household in the state this month, he was told by Meredith Hicks, the director of Work for Progress, a liberal group funded by Democratic Super PACS.: “That is not even like lying or something, if someone throws out a ballot, like if you want to fill it out you should do it.” She then brazenly offered O’Keefe, disguised as a middle-aged college instructor, a job with her group.

Oh No We Didn't Underestimate The threat

Or why James Clapper should be fired!Institute for the Studya of War:

ISW has predicted the rise of the Islamic State since 2012. Read our forecasts here.(pdf)
The Institute for the Study of War (ISW) provides accurate geostrategic forecasts and advanced warning of growing threats. ISW analysts have accurately forecasted the political fragmentation of Iraq and the return of al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI), now the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), since 2011. ISW analysts have correctly predicted the origins, pathways, methods, and aims of ISIS’s return.

ISW conducts strategic forecasting as a core intellectual contribution to foreign policy. ISW’s leaders believe that strategic surprise can be averted by monitoring the trajectories of complex problems over time, even from unclassified information. Over the last 18 months, ISW has published a number of forecasts that anticipated the resurgence of AQI, the devolution of the Iraqi Security Forces, and the emergence of the ISIS campaign to control territory inside Iraq and Syria. This document is a compilation of forecasts made by ISW’s analysts that have come true. Strategic forecasting does not presume that complex situations will always unfold as predicted. ISW strives to apply concrete knowledge of the present in order to deliver insight about the future. ISW hopes that this policy makers can use these insights in order to take a proactive rather than a reactive posture to emerging crisis situations and prevent their escalation.

Except that the guy doing the firing was also the one who directed him to say a lot of stupid stuff. I mean canning Clapper without Canning his boss is just, you know, pissing into the wind.

Democrats Now Have to Win War They Wanted American Right to Lose

Analytic Conservative:

It is important to remember that this all could have been avoided with a status of forces agreement. There is no evidence currently available that would lead us to believe that ISIS would have been able to make such advances if a strong American presence in Iraq had been realized, hence, solidifying our wartime success.

In my view, the failure of securing victory of hard fought wars is entirely politically motivated. In both Vietnam and Iraq, we have largely unpopular wars that were won by republican leadership while the anti-war and anti-American left did whatever they could to undermine efforts leading us towards mission completion. The anti-war left is a large portion of the Democratic Party’s voting base, and appeasing these zealots is high priority for democrats seeking political office. The last thing the democrats can allow to happen is for republicans to win wars that they opposed. This would mean that Nixon was able to do what LBJ could not, and it would mean that George W. Bush lead our country to victory against an enemy the left said we could not defeat.

To put it clearly, democrats lose wars that have been won in order to appease their voting base. These actions will have dire consequences in the future, and may lead to even larger and costlier conflicts in that region.

Its took the immanent extermination of an entire people for Democrats to finally do the right thing. But it remains to be seen if Obama will follow through to ISIS defeat or just screw around long enough to appear to have tried no to lose the war he's been trying so hard to lose.

As a Professor of Political Science, I Give Sen. Walsh an Automatic "F" for the Course

If you are one of my students and you plagiarize, I give you an automatic F. That's not an F for the paper, it's an automatic F for the entire course.

Since the reason you plagiarized was that you didn't do the work, then you would have gotten an F for the paper in the first place. Therefore, the punishment for stealing someone else's intellectual property and passing it off as your own has to be more severe than the consequences of not writing the paper in the first place. So, an automatic F.

And the fact that this was when Democratic Senator John Walsh of Montana was in a Master's degree program? That's worse. Much, much worse. You expect more from a graduate student. Not from a Democrat in Congress, no, but from a graduate student, yes.

The War College ought to rescind his degree.

Student in Organizing For America Voter Drive Behind Racist Anti-Semitic Incidents

I'm not really sure what a atheist/pacifist/environmentalist/libertarian socialist/consequentialist is but its pretty f*cked up:

One of the two students removed from Oberlin College earlier this year for allegedly circulating virulently racist, anti-Jewish and anti-gay messages around campus is an ardent leftist and committed supporter of President Obama, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.

Dylan Bleier, one of the two students, hosted a voter registration drive in a Walmart parking lot sponsored by Organizing for Action, the community organizing project that advances the agenda of President Obama.

The Oberlin Police Department identified Bleier and his partner in the spree, Matt Alden, as two of the principal architects of a month-long spate of racist, anti-Jewish and anti-gay messages at the small, private campus.

On his now-defunct LinkedIn page, Bleier noted that he was the founder and president of the Ithaca High School for Obama club. He also identified himself as a member of the Oberlin College Democrats.

If they’re not, then yeah, an off-the-record session in which the powers that be privately assure a guild that they’re on their side will do just fine. Happens all the time in the Obama White House.
The news of a meeting between Holder and the bureau chiefs comes amid widespread criticism from journalists and civil liberties advocates over the DOJ’s seizure of Associated Press phone records and an accusation that Fox News reporter James Rosen could be part of a criminal conspiracy for his reporting.[More...]

Harry is as pure as the driven snow and had no idea this happened

RENO, Nev. - A former Nevada powerbroker was convicted on Wednesday of making illegal campaign contributions to U.S. Sen. Harry Reid.

A federal jury reached the verdict in the case against real estate developer and once powerful lobbyist Harvey Whittemore.

The jury returned unanimous guilty verdicts on charges of making excessive campaign contributions, making contributions in the name of another, and causing a false statement to be made to the Federal Election Commission.

Whittemore faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine on each count.[...]

Reid has not been accused of any wrongdoing and did not testify during the trial. He has said he was unaware of any potential problems with the money he received..

IRS Official's Lawyer: Lois Lerner Will Plead The Fifth Before The House Oversight Committee Hearing

irshearing_lerner.jpg

She didn't target TEA Party groups, nor did anyone tell her too... honest!

[ZIP]WASHINGTON – A top IRS official in the division that reviews nonprofit groups will invoke the Fifth Amendment and refuse to answer questions before a House committee investigating the agency’s improper screening of conservative nonprofit groups.

Lois Lerner, the head of the exempt organizations division of the IRS, won’t answer questions about what she knew about the improper screening – or why she didn’t reveal it to Congress, according to a letter from her defense lawyer, William W. Taylor 3rd.

Lerner was scheduled to appear before the House Oversight committee Wednesday

[Continue reading]

Her lawyer wants her excused from the hearing so as not to embarrass and burden her
[LA Times]Taylor, a criminal defense attorney from the Washington firm of Zuckerman Spaeder, said that the Department of Justice has launched a criminal investigation, and that the House committee has asked Lerner to explain why she provided “false or misleading information” to the committee four times last year.

Since Lerner won’t answer questions, Taylor asked that she be excused from appearing, saying that would “have no purpose other than to embarrass or burden her.” There was no immediate word whether the committee will grant her request.

Boo frickin hoo, make her plead the Fifth for all to see.

Watch the dems try to turn this into a 'war on women' thingy like they did with Susan Rice's Benghazi clusterfruck on the Sunday talk shows.

As far as the DOJ conducting an investigation, yeah just like how well they did with the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case and Fast and Furious gun running.

Anonymous U.S. Officials: FBI ID's Benghazi Suspects But No Arrests & Stuff

This is not the flag you are looking for: A video is what you seek

Thanks Bronco!

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. officials say they have identified five men they believe might be behind the attack on the diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, last year. The officials say they have enough evidence to justify seizing them by military force as suspected terroristsbut not enough proof to try them in a U.S. civilian court as the Obama administration prefers.

So the officials say the men remain at large while the FBI gathers more evidence

AP better be careful as this appears to be another 'intel leak'. The underlined bold above isn't gonna go over too well with the Bronco administration.

We can't seize them as 'suspected terrorists'? Huh?

Michael Clemente, Fox News' Executive VP Of News:
"We are outraged to learn today that James Rosen was named a criminal co-conspirator for simply doing his job as a reporter"...

James Rosen deserved it, per liberal assmaggots, just like they have said about the IRS targeting conservative groups.

Via FNC:

The Justice Department obtained a portfolio of information about a Fox News correspondent's conversations and visits as part of an investigation into a possible leak, The Washington Post reported Monday -- in the latest example of the government seizing records of journalists.

This follows the charge that the department secretly obtained two months of phone records from Associated Press journalists as part of a separate leak probe. The department in this case, though, went a step further, as an FBI agent reportedly claimed there's evidence the journalist in question -- Fox News' James Rosen -- broke the law "at the very least, either as an aider, abettor and/or co-conspirator."

That detail would potentially send the case into unprecedented territory. No reporter has been prosecuted for seeking information. Such cases often target the suspected leaker, but not the journalist who published sensitive or classified information.

Michael Clemente, Fox News' executive vice president of news, defended Rosen in a statement issued Monday afternoon.

"We are outraged to learn today that James Rosen was named a criminal co-conspirator for simply doing his job as a reporter,"

"Make the sequester hurt" hit's a hurdle after terrorism in Boston

Ya think?

The only U.S. military team assigned to New York City to support first responders in case of a disaster will remain on duty. It was just saved on the brink of elimination.

fthamilton.jpgA day after the bombings at the Boston Marathon, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel rescinded his decision to disband the rapid-response unit based at Fort Hamilton in Brooklyn.

His abrupt change of mind was a relief to New Yorkers amid the sudden new concerns about terrorism. During testimony on Capitol Hill, Mr. Hagel announced that the Pentagon won't deactivate the 24th National Guard Weapons of Mass Destruction-Civil Support Team (WMD-CST)[...]

WMD-CSTs are trained to provide rapid military support to civil authorities in the event of a chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear threat.

Mr. Hagel acknowledged that his reversal on funding the pair of units in New York and Florida means they will not become the victims of federal cost-cutting[...]

"The 24th National Guard WMD-CST team has done exceptional job, not just in New York, but also in Boston, where they were on the ground responding to the horrific attack on the marathon," Mr. Grimm said. "This week's events have reminded us that we must remain vigilant, and this elite team assists that effort." [More..]

Democrats Eating Their Own Over Cronyism

Newark:

A behind-the-scenes political maneuver by Newark Mayor Cory Booker to fill a vacant council seat with his choice led to a near-riot in city hall tonight, with dozens of residents rushing the council stage and police responding with pepper-spray.

After weeks of jockeying for Rep. Donald Payne’s successor, Booker made an unprecedented personal appearance to cast the deciding vote with his council allies for Shanique Davis Speight, a longtime ally of power broker Stephen Adubato, over the angry objections of residents.

This is where the real fun begins.
After the vote, residents stood chanting "Cory’s gotta go!" as officials shouted over the confusion.

But when Speight was escorted by police to be sworn in, a group of residents, led by SEIU Local 617 President Rahaman Muhammad, stormed the dais and appeared to lunge toward Speight and her grade-school-age son.

Police restrained the group as they toppled a podium and residents were caught in the rush. When Muhammad would not give way, an officer doused him with pepper spray, along with residents, reporters and at least one other officer.

AUDIO: David Axelrod in 1995: Cut Funding to Big Bird; NRA Responsible for OKC

PJ Media Exclusive:

Just this morning, PJ Media received the audio from a 1995 David Axelrod appearance on Beyond the Beltway, a Chicago-based talk show hosted by Bruce DuMont.

Axelrod's appearances are listed here in the show's archives. I requested all of the tapes, and received them a short time ago. Here are the relevant clips:

From 5/21/1995, regarding the 1995 Oklahoma City terrorist bombing which murdered 168 people — the worst act of terror on American soil prior to September 11, 2001. Axelrod blames "rhetoric" from the NRA for contributing to the bombing and the barricading of Pennsylvania Avenue. Also from the 5/21/1995 appearance — Axelrod blames Republican presidents for running up the deficit, claiming that the president is primarily responsible for overspending. Also, he claims that the Democratic Congress — Democrats were in control of the House for 40 years prior to 1995 — tried to stop the Republican overspending. Also from the 5/21/1995 appearance — Axelrod thinks it is a good idea to cut federal funding of PBS. Last month, Axelrod led a campaign against Mitt Romney's assertion that this funding should be cut

Too bad this didn't come out a lot sooner.

Another Reason To Vote For Romney: Pelosi Headlined DCCC Fundraiser With Muslim Brotherhood Front Groups

Via IPT:

The Investigative Project on Terrorism has learned that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi headlined a Democratic Party fundraiser with leaders of Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood front groups in May of this year.

The invitation-only fundraiser was sponsored by Reps. Keith Ellison, D-Minn.; Andre Carson, D-Ind.; and Steve Israel, D-N.Y., chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and took place on the evening of May 16, 2012, at the W Hotel in Washington D.C.

In attendance were about 20 members of a Syrian dissident group and 10 officials representing Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas front groups. Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) Executive Director Nihad Awad was perhaps the most prominent attendee and played a key role in organizing the event.

CAIR, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2007-2008 Holy Land Foundation Hamas money-laundering trials, was described in FBI testimony as having been created by Hamas. In a 2007 federal court filing, prosecutors described CAIR as conspiring with other branches of the Muslim Brotherhood to support terrorists.

The FBI officially severed relations with CAIR in 2008 because of its ties to Hamas.

Awad has openly championed Hamas and defended suicide bombings as "legitimate resistance."

The Democrats would sell their souls to the devil to stay in power, and they appeared to have done just that.

File this under stealth jihad.

Democratic Congressman's Son Encourages Voter Fraud
Update: Rep Moran's 'Field Director' Son Resigns

I was just saying earlier this morning that I witnessed what I think was attempted voter fraud. I also noted that the attempt failed because early voters in my state have to show some sort of photo ID. But also that the attempt might have worked on election day because photo ID is not required.

This is worse. It shows the son of Democratic Congressman Jim Moran, Pat, not only encouraging voter fraud but promising DNC resources to help perpetuate it.

They say that they are against voter ID laws are there to protect voting rights. They're lying. They're against voter ID laws because it makes it harder for them to commit fraud.

Watch at least the first 8 or so minutes. The rest of it is the raw unedited footage. A preemptive strike against the Left's accusations of taking the words out of context.

Update by SH: Pat Moran is no longer working for his father's get out the vote as field director. He resigned
