Obama, Boston, Benghazi And The Media


The facts about the Radical Muslim Terrorist attack on our Embassy in Benghazi Libya continue to leak out as if it were a nail hole in a tire that is going flat in spite of administration denials and attacks upon those who ultimately want the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth to be presented to the American people and the families of those who were killed and wounded in their service to our country.
-
The latest revelations involves FBI and CIA personnel who want to give testimony to Congressional committees but who are being blocked by Obama’s henchmen from doing so.  The major media is totally quiet on this abuse of power.  Very different story if these allegations were made during Bush’s watch!
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/04/29/obama-administration-officials-have-threatened-whistle-blowers-on-benghazi/
-
-
The major media, especially CNN, have now switched over to glamorizing the Boston Bomber Brothers!  Lots of “beef stake” photos of the dead brother and lots of “pretty youthful” pictures of the surviving brother and lots of comments that “we” didn’t make them feel welcome in America and didn’t do enough for them.
-
Boston bombing suspect’s family reportedly received $100G from taxpayers
http://www.foxnews.com/us/2013/04/30/boston-bombing-suspects-family-reportedly-received-100g-from-taxpayers/
-
The US liberal, progressive and anti-American major media is a disgusting disgrace.
-
THIS IS THE PHOTO that should be shown with every news piece covering this dastardly Radical Muslim Terrorist attack upon our people in our Homeland:

Cub Scouts Not Respectful Or Kind?

-
Roanoke Times, 4-25-2013, Pg 13, Opinion: Nothing respectful or kind in anti-gay Cub Scout policy.
Extensive article with unpleasant Scout anti-homosexual-policy cartoon
http://www.roanoke.com/opinion/commentary/1876224-12/nothing-respectful-or-kind-in-anti-gay-policy.html
-
The author lambastes the current Cub Scout policy that attempts to exclude openly pro-homosexual persons from being Cub Scout Leaders.
Lots of effort to equate the Black Civil Rights situation to Boy Scout anti-homosexual policies.
-
Perhaps one might reflect on the fact that Cub Scouts are between the ages of 7 and 11.
Exactly how much pro-homosexual exposure and indoctrination do boys of that age require?
How about two male leaders holding hands and kissing to start the meeting?
That certainly would make the Editors of the Roanoke Times all happy and warm.
-
The Catholic Church has had lots of experience with homosexual male priests having dominion over young boys.  Perhaps that hasn’t worked out very well!
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2005/12/catholic-church-and-homosexual-priests.html
-
In spite of the Scouts efforts to protect their boys, there sadly have been examples of under-cover homosexuals recruiting and exploiting the most vulnerable and weak.
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2012/10/boy-scouts-open-files-on-sex-abuse.html
-
The primary responsibility of the Scout organization is to protect young boys while providing a safe and healthy environment while they are engaging in scout activities.
If the author wishes to wrap a homosexual blanket around her 7 year old son the editors of the Roanoke Times will be there to cheer her on.  How sad!
-
For most people there is a BIG difference between being respectful to others as opposed to accepting and promoting behavior we find to be NOT OK!
There is nothing “gay” about two men participating in homosexual behaviors!
There is nothing respectful about exposing 7 year olds to these situations!

Obama And Hillary Aided By Election Fraud

-
New News: Democrat Election Fraud in Florida
Top staffer for Florida Democratic Rep. Garcia resigns amid voting fraud probe!
Note the look of "I can't believe you let yourself get caught" by DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz:
 http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/06/02/top-staffer-for-florida-democratic-rep-resigns-amid-voting-fraud-probe/#ixzz2VqldGU1d
-
The Editors of the Roanoke Times and their associates in the liberal progressive community have consistently ridiculed and marginalized the issue of election fraud.
Their stated view is that anything done to address election fraud (like voter ID) is a right-wing conspiracy against minorities and the poor.
 http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2013/03/roanoke-times-race-baiting.html
-
So, it’s not surprising that one can’t find any coverage in the liberal media of the latest obscene revelations that both Obama and Hillary would have been disqualified to run for office if not aided and abetted by election fraud by their Democrat supporters.
Move along folks, nothing to see here!

-
A jury in South Bend, Indiana has found that fraud put President Obama and Hillary Clinton on the presidential primary ballot in Indiana in the 2008 election. Two Democrat political operatives were convicted Thursday night in the illegal scheme after only three hours of deliberations. They were found guilty on all counts.

A Tale Of Two Cities: Sandy And Katrina

-
What a difference between the major media follow-up stories between hurricanes Sandy and Katrina!
After Katrina there was a major media weekly walk-through for many months of how dysfunctional government was in handling the hurricane and its aftermath and the agony of thousands of people.
-
Fast forward to hurricane Sandy; What’s the major media doing about similar follow-up tales of woe and distress and dysfunction?
Move along folks, nothing to see here!
-
Apparently the major media doesn’t know or care that Six (6) months after Sandy, and Congress’ approval of $60 BILLION in aid, thousands are still homeless in NY & NJ:
http://news.yahoo.com/6-months-sandy-thousands-homeless-ny-nj-154507020.html
-
Why would there be such a news black-out?  Why no tirade against FEMA now?
Could it be the difference between the major medias' war against Bush vs. their love affair with Obama?  That wouldn’t be fair and balanced, would it?
-
Yet another vivid and sad example of how dysfunctional our major media has become!  How disappointing and sad!

The Strange Killing Blame Game

-
Isn't it strange that after a bombing,
everyone blames the bomber,
but after a shooting,
the problem is the gun!
-
-
-
 
We are told not to judge Muslims
based on the actions of a few.
I suggest we give millions of responsible
American gun owners that same courtesy

Bush And Obama Approval Ratings Tied At 47%

-
Roanoke Times, 4-26-2013, Pg 1, Sentiment, celebration usher in Bush Library.
-
A nicely presented AP review of the opening ceremony for the G.W. Bush Presidential Library attended by G.W. Bush, Obama, Clinton, G.H.W. Bush and Carter.
Even Obama managed to focus on the positive and avoid the Bush-bashing that has been the hallmark of most of his alibis for his failures.
-
Perhaps he might have be influenced by:
-
* Executive executions by drones that stand in stark contrast to his criticisms of GITMO and water-boarding.

* Expanding the Patriot Act provisions he once lambasted as impeachable.

* Multiple Radical Muslim Terrorist attacks on our homeland during his watch.

* Inability to fix our economy in spite of running up a $16 Trillion debt.

* The massive Muslim Brotherhood takeover of most of the middle-east.

* Among numerous other things!
-
Perhaps Obama was somewhat subdued because he had read the latest Presidential Approval Polls that show Bush is tied with Obama at 47% approval rating.  How could that have happened?  Didn’t read this in the Roanoke Times did we!
-
-
However, the RT Editors couldn’t let the positive tone, tenor and content of the opening ceremony stand.
No!  Let’s run a real nasty so called anti-bush cartoon back on the editorial page!
Let’s rename the library, the Lie-Bury!
-
Don’t remember the RT Editors doing anything nasty for the opening of the Clinton library.  Perhaps they could demonstrate they’re fair and balanced by belatedly doing so!
Suggest they Google:  Images, Clinton, Monica, Cartoons for a trove of opportunity.
Monica withholding evidence or I wore your favorite dress might be appropriate.
-
Ever wonder what journalism school turns out such unpleasant editors and what selection process brings them to Roanoke?

Hey Obama; When The KGB Calls – Answer The Phone

-
Roanoke Times, 4-23-2013, Pg 1, 14: No ties are found to terrorist groups.
-
What a profound headline!
Looks just like a repeat of the Libya Benghazi cover story!
Move along folks, nothing to see here!
-
New News: Tsarnaev Mom on Terror List 18 Months before Boston bombing!
Apparently Radical Muslim Terrorist nuts don't fall far from the tree!
http://www.foxnews.com/us/2013/04/26/father-boston-bombing-suspects-delays-trip-to-us-over-health-problems-ex-wife/
-
The Tsarnaev Brothers are clearly Radical Muslim Terrorists who have ties to violent anti-American elements.  These ties include websites, personal contacts and a six-month visit by the older brother to Russia.
-
The Russian KGB called both the FBI and the CIA informing them that Tsarnaev was consorting with Radical Muslims and was a threat.
It’s now clear that the Dept of so-called Homeland Security, the FBI and the CIA did not coordinate their information on the Tsarnaevs’ nor did they follow-up on the radicalization process that followed his Russian trip.
-
To add insult to death and injury the Obama team is now saying “The Sequester” will interfere with the prosecution of this terrorist attack!
Talk about insulting the intelligence of every person in this country – and especially insulting those killed and maimed and wounded by these ruthless killers.
-
What has become of our government: of the people, by the people and for the people?
-
What is profoundly wrong with a president who cannot and will not say:
“Radical Muslim Terrorism”?
Obama declared the Fort Hood massacre was “workplace violence”.
Apparently this was just “street-place violence” up there in Boston!

Federalizing Common Crimes

-
Roanoke Times, 4-17-2013, Pg17, Opinion: We need the law to protect women.
-
An attack ad against GOP members of Congress for their objections to the Federal Violence Against Women Act.
-
Is there a state in the union that does not define violence against anyone a crime?
Why does the federal government need a law against violent crime?
Are there people in a state who are getting hurt or killed in which the perpetrator is going free because the violent act is not declared a crime with associated prosecution and criminal penalties?
Are federal courts and prosecutors the appropriate venue for common crimes?
-
This is clearly another example of progressives and liberals expanding and extending the reach of the federal government into every aspect of life, much of which was designated as states’ responsibility within the US Constitution.
-
For real protection of women's rights why not address:
The HIV+AIDS pandemic?

FAA More ObamaNation Sequestration

-
Obama and his team are hell-bent to make the American people suffer as much as they can to demonstrate that the federal government cannot reduce next years spending by 2%!
-
This in the face of a 25% growth in federal spending since 2008:
2008: $2.98 trillion = $2980 Billion
2009: $3.27 trillion = $3270 Billion
2010: $3.46 trillion = $3460 Billion
2011: $3.60 trillion = $3600 Billion
2012: $3.65 trillion = $3650 Billion
2013: $3.72 trillion = $3720 Billion
-
Talk about insulting the intelligence of every American!
This in addition to threatening a veto of any legislation that would help to focus these minimal reductions on waste, fraud and abuse of which there is clearly far more than 2%.
-
Obama’s Today ObamaNation is to reduce FAA flight controllers thereby impacting flight schedules with associated delays for the traveling public.
The Obama team is almost gleeful in their descriptions of just how large these delays might become.
-
This from the so called leader who promised Hope and Change we can believe in!

Senate Rejects More NonEffective Gun Control

-
Yet More New News: 4/24/2013
To Obama's dismay, America not outraged by gun control fail, poll suggests
On the surface, the poll released by The Washington Post and Pew Research Center made no sense. Only 47 percent of respondents said they were "disappointed" or "angry" that the Senate last week failed to advance a bill to expand background checks to gun shows and online sales.
http://news.yahoo.com/obamas-dismay-america-not-outraged-gun-control-fail-200050065.html
-
New News Item: The Seattle Times, 4-21-2013, Pg 1:
"There certainly is an erosion of trust and confidence in the competence of government.  People often don't trust government to protect them, and there's a very distressing lack of any confidence government will keep its word."
Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine.
-
The  Senate rejected the Obama teams bill to increase restrictions on gun ownership.
Immediately Obama and associates blasted the NRA for the rejection.
Perhaps the Senators understood that the proposed additional restrictions would not have avoided recent horrific mass attacks and were well aware of the significant reduction in gun deaths over the past decade during a time of significant increases in personal gun ownership and the significance of the 2nd Amendment.
-
There is a major movement underway for individuals to purchase guns and ammunition. So much so that retail outlets have sold-out of many popular brands of guns and ammo.
One might speculate that Americans are now just as wary of their own government as they are from common felons. This has happened before in 1776.

 http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2013/03/original-assault-rifle-ban-and.html
-
Perhaps there’s something about the Obama team including Eric Holder, Janet Napolitano, the ATF and some of the other agencies that have created an atmosphere of significant distrust.
Perhaps a President’s statements about Americans clinging to their guns and bibles has had an undo influence.
-
Whatever the root cause, the reality cannot be denied and Americans are now very focused on the 2nd Amendment and their Constitutional Rights.
Perhaps this will prove to be a good thing!

Anti-Fracking Filmmakers Exposed And Debunked

-
The anti-energy activists and Alarmists have jumped on the Fracking process for extracting oil from shale with outrageous claims including that it causes breast cancer and turns your faucets into flaming torches.
-
Phelim McAleer, director of controversial "pro-fracking" documentary FrackNation, will attend the premiere of rival filmmaker Josh Fox's Gasland 2 in New York, NY at the Tribeca Film Festival.
Setting up the Battle of the Fracking Filmmakers at Tribeca Film Festival
http://us1.campaign-archive2.com/?u=65361a4a899c736f66ed8fb13&id=a14aeaba58&e=179569db2e
-
Variety said that FrackNation "makes a good case against Fox's (anti-fracking) movie" and that it "debunks the famous Gasland scene of a fracking 'victim' setting his tap water on fire."
-
It’s interesting that the Hollywood and Major Media people continue to highlight and support the discredited hypothesis and schemes and claims of the Alarmist and anti-energy crowd.

A Very Disturbing Anti-Jewish Rant

-
Roanoke Times, 4-13-2013, Pg 13: Opinion: An anti-Jewish diatribe by one R.F. Boyd: “There is no peace process.”

New Additional News: A case of anti-Semitism by
Kathy Cohen | Cohen is the rabbi at Temple Emanuel and lives in Roanoke.
Monday, April 22, 2013
-
-
Boyd’s very disturbing article articulates the following:
There is no peace process because the Israelis don’t want peace.
Israelis want the Palestinians in refugee camps or only as second-class citizens.
US politicians are too busy kissing American Jew butts to focus on peace.
Jews are rich and prosperous and influential in business and politics.
Lots of class warfare data like 46% US Jews make over $100,000, etc, etc
And the anti-Jew rhetoric goes on
-
By the end of this very disturbing “Opinion” Article one was expecting to see the date Boyd and associates were setting for the next Kristallnacht.
http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/323626/Kristallnacht
-
Perhaps Boyd, who claims to be a former professor, has like minded associates in the NYC school system where the New York school district apologizes for 'Jews are evil' assignment:
http://www.foxnews.com/us/2013/04/12/new-york-school-district-apologizes-for-jews-are-evil-assignment/#ixzz2QZGw49Eo
-
It turns out that the Roanoke Times Editors must like Boyd’s brand of anti-Jew Rants because they published his similar diatribe last year:
Roanoke Times, 12-2-2012, Pg 3: Israel: the ungrateful ally by Prof. R.F. Boyd
Israel needs security because it has become a war-mongering bully unwilling to get along with its neighbors”.
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2012/12/israel-war-mongering-bully.html
-
As one who grew up in the Borscht Alps
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borscht_Belt
I am very familiar with Jewish people and much of their family culture and work ethic and keen focus on education and achievement.
Boyd’s class-warfare attacks upon Jews are consistent with the current left-wing socialist chant echoing through politics and the major media.
This is not a new phenomena, history is ripe with class warfare attacks upon successful people and the outcomes are always tragic.
-
Boyd and the Editors of the Roanoke Times need to give some real thought to how their nasty and vindictive messages can result in bad outcomes.
Kristallnacht was just the beginning act by the Brown Shirts.

President Thomas Jefferson’s Birthday April 13th

-
Roanoke Times,  4-13-2013, Pg 1 Extra Headline:  Don’t quote me on that.
-
"The God who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time." - Thomas Jefferson.
April 13th marks the 270th birthday of the author of the Declaration of Independence and third President of the United States. It was his words that declared us a country of free people. That declared we are endowed by our Creator with inalienable rights of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
"And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor."
-
No!  That’s NOT the Roanoke Times coverage of Thomas Jefferson’s birthday!
The Roanoke Times printed a nice big picture of Jefferson and then went on to devote the entire page to “all those things that Jefferson didn’t say”.
Perhaps the RT Editors couldn’t find some real valid quotes, some of which are at:
http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/t/thomas_jefferson.html
-
At least the RT did better than Google who abstained from honoring Pres. Jefferson on their homepage that typically has a “doodle” for the most abstract and unimportant items.
-
How sad that our major media is shunning and marginalizing the very people and institutions that has made this the greatest country in the world.
Move along folks – nothing to see here!

ObamaCare Reducing HealthCare Coverage

-
Roanoke Times, 4-11-2013, Pg 8: Fewer Virginians covered by employers.
Just 65% had insurance through work in 2011, compared to 75% back in 2000.
Higher costs naturally translate into fewer employers offering insurance coverage, and fewer employees accepting it, even when it is offered; Dr. R.L. Lavizzo-Mourey
-
Every day there’s new negative news about ObamaCare.  Apparently passing it so we could read it is shining an ever brighter light on the adverse consequences of socialized and nationalized health care.  Who could have seen that coming?
-
Apparently Obama still thinks that as soon as the 16,000 enforcement IRS agents are on board everything will be OK.  No word yet on adding doctors or nurses or technicians.
- 
THE REALLY BIG SINK HOLE

 -
When will the Major Media start demanding that Obama publish the names of every one of the hundreds of organizations that have been given Exemptions from compliance with ObamaCare.  It's interesting how selective the media is with FOIA!

AGW Global Warming News And Education

-
Roanoke Times, 4-12-2013, Pg 3:  A new federal report (by dozens of scientists from five different federal agencies) says last year’s drought was a freak of nature and can’t be blamed on man-made AGW global warming.
-
Kudu’s to them.  It’s refreshing to see a spark of reality shining out of our “dozens of scientists from five government agencies”; wonder what all that cost us?

Climate change skeptics seize on reports showing temperatures leveling
 http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/04/09/climate-change-skeptics-seize-on-reports-showing-temperatures-leveling/?test=latestnews#ixzz2QGcC8Xz0
-
In recent weeks, Der Spiegel, the Telegraph and the Economist have reported the unexpected stabilizing of global surface temperatures. Even former NASA scientist and outspoken climate change activist James Hansen has acknowledged the 10-year lull. 
Morano said: "In the peer-reviewed literature we're finding hundreds of factors influence global temperature, everything from ocean cycles to the tilt of the earth's axis to water vapor, methane, cloud feedback, volcanic dust, all of these factors are coming together. They're now realizing it wasn't the simple story we've been told of your SUV is creating a dangerously warm planet."

“Obama’s”  New K-12 education standards to mandate climate change instruction
http://dailycaller.com/2013/03/29/new-k-12-education-standards-to-mandate-climate-change-discourage-skeptics/#ixzz2QGd6AmPz
-
“Pending nationwide science standards will recommend that K-12 students at public schools learn about climate change to help fill a knowledge gap concerning the subject, while skepticism will be discouraged.”

-
What to tell the kids while marginalizing those darn Skeptics?
-
  1. We have a hypothesis that burning fossil fuels creates CO2 and that is causing catastrophic global warming and climate change.
    BUT: we can’t demonstrate that cause and effect relationship nor can we measure more than a one degree increase in temperature over the past 150 years.-
  2. We have observed that glaciers, especially those in the northern hemisphere, have undergone major melting and retreat.
    BUT: most of these glaciers started major retreat in 1750 at the end of the little ice age and we don’t know why.-
  3. We have observed that the arctic ice has been diminished during recent years.
    BUT: that ice covering has been even more diminished during the 1920’s and we don’t know why.-
  4. There has been very harsh weather during recent years.
    BUT: studies have shown that these weather patterns are well within historical limits and the natural variability of earth’s climate patterns.-
  5. We think there is more CO2 in the atmosphere now than at any time in history.
    BUT: historic ice core samples have demonstrated that temperature changes lead changes in CO2 by many years thereby negating the premise that CO2 caused temperature change.-
  6. There are many sophisticated computer models that predict major increases in temperature will occur due to increases in CO2.
    BUT:  the Gore-Mann hockey-stick temperature graph that represented these models has been shown to be vastly inaccurate and grossly over-stated.

North Korean Nuclear Weapons and Missiles A Reality

-
Roanoke Times, 4-12-2013, Pg 1, 3: Pentagon report says North Korea "may" have nuclear-capable missile.  (Where did this "may" come from?)
-
-
Pentagon report shows N. Korea capable of arming missile with nuke, officials downplay finding
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/04/12/north-korea-capable-arming-missile-with-nuclear-warhead-according-to-pentagon/
-
It’s a disgrace and major national security issue that the Obama team has denied and now is down-playing this nuclear weapons threat.
The Obama cover-up of North Korea’s nuclear threat is now clear for all to see, and like the Benghazi disaster – Obama and his minions continue with their lies and deceit and cover-up.
-
Do you feel safer now than you did four years ago?
-
Bill Richardson, the big D-Democrat gave North Korea money, fuel, food and a nuclear power plant as a bribe to keep them from developing nuclear weapons and missiles!
What could possibly go wrong with that plan?

Jane Fonda Still A Nasty Unrepentant Traitor

-
Jane Fonda tells veterans boycotting her movie 'The Butler' to 'get a life'
-
-
It is difficult to articulate what a despicable and nasty person Jane Fonda truly is.
She did get a life.  A vastly rich and famous life.  And without ever looking back at the harm and suffering she caused not only for those at the Hanoi-Hilton but to all those who served valiantly and came back to a nasty Fonda-homecoming.

Sadly, Over 50,000 of our boys didn’t have the opportunity to “GET A LIFE”

The Real Leaders Are Passing Away

-
The Western World is in disarray as it drifts away from the economic, social, political and moral base that was so well personified by Margret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan.
The World has lost two great leaders of substance and courage and achievement.
-


-
We are now blindly following the Pied Pipers of socialism who promise much and deliver little. The insolvency and crushing debt within the EU and the US are like anchors, nailing our ship of state to the bottom where socialism and stagnation
hold us securely to mediocrity
-
America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership.
Americans deserve better."
Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006
“Our $16 Trillion debt is not a problem!”
Pres. Barack H. Obama, 2013
Talk about gross hypocrisy!

The Liberals War On AGW Skeptics

-
The War on AGW-Skeptics, by AGW-Alarmists and their Liberal associates, has now been taken to a whole new level!  For years AGW-Skeptics have been vilified, labeled with nasty names, discriminated against in grant opportunities, and marginalized by those who subscribe to the Gore-Mann hypothesis that man-made CO2 is causing catastrophic global warming and climate change.
-
By Alexandra Jaffe - 04/03/13 05:00 AM ET
Alexandra Jaffe reports for the Around the Hill section of Roll Call.
A California billionaire is pledging to spend as much of his fortune ($1.4 Billion) as necessary to make climate change “the defining issue of our generation.”
Tom Steyer, who made his riches as a hedge fund manager, told The Hill on Tuesday that he wants to make climate change a campaign issue for years to come.
“The goal here is not to win. The goal here is to destroy these people.
We want a smashing victory,” Steyer said of candidates he judges to be on the wrong side of the climate change debate.
http://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/291559-greens-get-billionaire-ally-money
-
Lacking the scientific basis to support their AGW hypothesis, after spending hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars within the government and at selected universities, the AGW-Alarmists are now cranking up their personal war upon AGW-Skeptics.
Sounds like shades of Kim Jong up in North Korea and Nikita Khrushchev with his "we will bury you" declaration at the UN!
The left-wing people have always been big on waging wars of personal destruction and this is yet another example.
With the total support of the Liberal-Pravda Media they may well achieve the triumph of politics over science.  How sad is that!

It’s interesting that the Liberal-Progressive community who claim to be so civilized and intellectual and tolerant have so many wars going against those who do not subscribe to their views:
War against Right to Life
War against Gun Owners
War against Christians and Christian Symbols
War against opponents of Homosexual marriage
And the list goes on ---- they’re so tolerant to others views!

Why Couldn’t They Predict Today’s Six Inches Of Snow Last Night?

-
Our learned friends at the Weather Channel and our well paid civil servant’s at NOAA talk with great certainty about AGW man-made global warming, but they are unable to tell us on Wednesday night that we’ll have significant snow on Thursday!
And all this with massive taxpayer investments in tools, software, computers, scientific instruments and well paid highly educated experts.
-
It is difficult to comprehend how these people can collect hundreds of millions of taxpayer money to “study” AGW global warming when they can’t perform even the most basic functions of their profession.
And to add insult to injury, they have the audacity to bad-mouth those who question their hypothesis, methods and motives.
-
To paraphrase Upton Sinclair:
It's hard to get people (like AGW Global Warming Alarmists) to understand something when their salary depends on not understanding it: 
-
Included in this group of political-scientists is NASA’s James Hansen, director of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies and a controversial and highly vocal voice of alarm about the planet’s changing climate, who will retire as the director of the space institute, NASA announced Tuesday -- and plans to immediately sue his former employer.

-
Here’s how the Astronauts at NASA view Jim Hansen and his totally biased and misdirected handling of his job and performance:

-
It’s way past time for the Global Warming AGW Alarmists to stop the Political Gore-Mann jihad and open the doors to real scientific processes and the “scientific method”.

Obama rated 5th Best U.S. President

-
Of the total of 44 US Presidents:  Obama rated 5th Best president ever.

 I was just reading a Democrat publicity release that said,
 "... after a little more than 4 years, Obama has been rated the 5th best president ever!!"

The details the DNC neglected ...

1. Reagan, Lincoln, and 8 others 'tied' for 1st.

2. 15 presidents 'tied' for 2nd.

3. 17 other presidents 'tied' for 3rd.

4. Jimmy Carter came in 4th.

5. Obama 5th.

Obama’s Dysfunctional Easter Eggs

-
The 2013 Easter Season has been very interesting.  It started with Obama’s Pravda-media ignoring Palm Sunday and Good Friday.
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2013/03/is-it-not-good-friday-in-roanoke-valley.html
-
Then Google features “Cesar Chavez” celebrating his 86th birthday as if Easter Sunday didn’t exist.
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2013/03/the-ignore-christ-easter-morning-award.html
-
All this fits nicely together when one discovers that Obama released a statement on Friday, March 29, proclaiming March 31st "Cesar Chavez Day, 2013".
http://cdn.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/03/31/On-Easter-Obama-Names-Day-After-Alinsky-Protege-Cesar-Chavez
-
Easter Morning was the icing on the Obama Easter Eggs.  Obama didn’t go back to his life-long religious counselor, The Reverend Wright of the God Damn American Church.
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2008/03/obamas-rev-wright-very-wrong.html
-
Instead the Obama’s attended the Episcopal Church with Pastor Rev. Luis León.
Rev. León chose to deliver a dysfunctional Easter Morning message attacking Conservative Christians as if he were Joe Biden himself with his “they’ll put 'you-all' back in chains” Danville-rhetoric.
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2012/08/biden-in-danville-va-nasty-vicious.html
-
Rev. León launched into a political diatribe saying Conservative Christians want:
Blacks to be back in the back of the bus
Homosexuals to be back in the closet
Women to be back in the kitchen
Immigrants to be back on their side of the border
http://foxnewsinsider.com/2013/04/01/megyn-kelly-debate-pastor-luis-leon-bashes-religious-right-in-easter-sermon-attended-by-obamas/
-
What a joyous and uplifting Easter Sunday morning message.
Apparently Liberals are unable to be pleasant and cordial, even on Easter Morning.
Sure sounded like the on-going, never-ending Obama-Biden Campaign songs.
The only thing left out was the “You didn’t build that” homily.
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2012/08/presidents-speech-taken-at-face-value.html
-
All this from “The Self-proclaimed Uniter” and friends with their Hope and Change Message!  Obama and his associates certainly know how to bring the morally uplifting message of Easter to the country and the world!

Marketing Abstract ObamaCare

-
Roanoke Times, 4-1-2013, Pg 5: It’s hard to shape the pitch to sell ObamaCare while it is still in the abstract: Dem Rep Jan Schakowsky
-
ObamaCare still in the abstract!  What a great article for April Fool’s Day!
We voted for it 3 years ago, so that we could read it!  Apparently Nancy Pelosi and the Obama Administration are incredibly slow readers and writers.
-
Actually, it’s no wonder why no one can read and understand it:
"This is over 20,000 pages and measures over seven feet high (7' 2.5"):
http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/03/11/The-Seven-Foot-Tall-Stack-of-New-Regulations-That-is-Obamacare
Thousands of DC Bureaucrats are writing lots more every day.  Your tax dollars at work!
-
What’s not abstract are many of the negative and adverse consequences of ObamaCare including: no one understands how it will work, costs are escalating with every news release, there are no additional medical resources identified, there are 16,000 additional IRS enforcement agents to be hired, companies are limiting part-time workers to 29 hours to avoid costs, many people will NOT be able to keep their current providers and increased costs will hurt job retention and growth.  What a joy! 
What could possible go wrong when this kicks-in in January?
