MSNBC Attacks Romney for Not Drinking

Even at the laughing academy known as MSNBC, this quote from the absurd Martin Bashir ought to raise a few eyebrows:

“Mitt Romney does not consume alcohol, which begs the question: will total abstention put his candidacy, perhaps even this great nation, in jeopardy?”

If that’s the biggest rock Obama’s amen corner has to throw at Romney, the Hopey Change nightmare is almost over.

Bashir gets an eyeful.

We Have Plenty of Oil

Our liberal rulers want to use an artificially imposed shortage of oil to inflict on us a lower standard of living in the name of their antihuman green ideology, as well as to promote government dependency by hamstringing the economy. As Barack Hussein Obama brazenly lies,

“[Y]ou and I both know that with only 2% of the world’s oil reserves, we can’t just drill our way to lower gas prices — not when we consume 20 percent of the world’s oil.”

Meanwhile, back in reality, The American Dream presents us with 10 facts:

#1 Back in 1995, the U.S. Geological Survey told the American people that the Bakken Shale formation in western North Dakota and eastern Montana only held 151 million barrels of oil. Today, government officials are admitting that it holds 4.3 billion barrels of recoverable oil, and some analysts believe that the actual number could be closer to 20 billion barrels of oil.

#2 It is estimated that there are up to 19 billion barrels of recoverable oil deposits in the tar sands of Utah.

#3 It is estimated that there are at least 86 billion barrels of recoverable oil deposits in the Outer Continental Shelf.

#4 It is believed that there are 800 billion barrels of recoverable oil deposits in the Green River formation in Wyoming.

#5 Overall, the United States is sitting on approximately 1.442 trillion barrels of recoverable oil deposits.

#6 According to the Institute of Energy Research, the United States has a 120 year supply of natural gas.

#7 According to the Institute of Energy Research, the United States has a 200 year supply of oil.

#8 According to the Institute of Energy Research, the United States has a 464 year supply of coal.

#9 According to Pastor Lindsey Williams, absolutely gigantic oil fields have been discovered up in Alaska that the American public is not being told about.

#10 Goldman Sachs is predicting that the United States will be the number one oil producing country in the world by the year 2017.

But with the right people in charge, we can have an energy shortage with accompanying crippling prices no matter how vast the resources we are sitting on. The Ukraine — where Obama’s fellow oligarchical collectivist Joseph Stalin engineered a famine that killed millions — is known as the Breadbasket of Europe. As the great countermoonbat Milton Friedman observed, if the federal government took charge of the Sahara Desert, there would soon be a shortage of sand.

The Trayvon Stork

Where do little Trayvons come from? From parenting like that provided by Jacqueline Morris of Fort Worth. After her 17-year-old son Ernest was fatally shot while breaking into a home, she describes his habits of “messing up” and “having fights at school” as “the normal thing child do”:

Good thing the shooter was black. There was no need for Al Sharpton and the national media to get involved.

Occucommie Calls for Bloodshed

Just like the Tea Party, our liberal rulers tell us. But there’s no need to issue obscenity alerts before posting videos of Tea Party rallies. On Tuesday the language was no prettier than the sentiments expressed when a thug at an Occupy event in DC exhorted the crowd with the inspiring words, “I want you to start killing m*****f*****s!”

Obviously these animals have a part to play in the designs of the Establishment Left, or they would not be praised by prominent Democrats and whitewashed by the “mainstream” media.

Illegal Aliens Rake in $Billions Through Tax Fraud

Why stop at voter fraud? Undocumented Democrats do tax fraud too — with the help of their benefactors, our rulers:

The Internal Revenue Service says everyone who is employed in the United States — even those who are working here illegally — must report income and pay taxes. Of course, undocumented workers are not supposed to have a social security number. So for them to pay taxes, the IRS created what’s called an ITIN, an individual taxpayer identification number. A 9-digit ITIN number issued by the IRS provides both resident and nonresident aliens with a unique identification number that allows them to file tax returns.

Instead of being thrown out on their ears, those who are in the country unlawfully are officially acknowledged as semi-citizens. What could go wrong? Here’s what:

Each spring, at tax preparation offices all across the nation, many illegal immigrants are now eagerly filing tax returns to take advantage of a tax loophole, using their ITIN numbers to get huge refunds from the IRS.

The loophole is called the Additional Child Tax Credit. It’s a fully-refundable credit of up to $1000 per child, and it’s meant to help working families who have children living at home.

But 13 Investigates has found many undocumented workers are claiming the tax credit for kids who live in Mexico – lots of kids in Mexico.

“We’ve seen sometimes 10 or 12 dependents, most times nieces and nephews, on these tax forms,” the whistleblower told Eyewitness News. “The more you put on there, the more you get back.”

Big Government knows all about the ongoing looting spree.

Last year, the inspector general released a new report showing the problem now costs American tax payers more than $4.2 billion.

However, since the main purpose of our Hopey Changey federal government is to inflict “social justice” by stealing wealth from those who create it to give to those who have no right to it, the IRS is making no discernible effort to stop this insanity. The money will continue to gush as if from a shattered water main until the impending Cloward-Piven collapse brings the sick farce liberals are making of America to an end.

If this doesn’t enrage you, you’re either a liberal or dead.

A Fantasy Soon to Come True

Pity Michelle Antoinette; her existence is as wretched as Cinderella’s. She weeps:

“It is hard to sneak around and do what you want. I have done it a couple of times. But you know one fantasy I have, and the Secret Service they keep looking at me because they think I might actually do it, is to walk right out the front door and just keep walking.”

In the meantime, at least she has one consolation — blowing mountains of our money on one extravagant vacation after another.

It cost taxpayers nearly a half-million dollars for first lady Michelle Obama to travel to Spain in 2010, according to an analysis by Judicial Watch.

But that barely mitigates the misery of having to represent a country that is “just downright mean.”

Hold on, Moose. January 2013 is right around the corner. You can walk out and keep walking, with the American public’s shoeprint firmly engraved on the wide load you drag around behind you.

Illegal Alien Granted Free Pass for Vehicular Homicide

Our moonbat rulers aren’t totally unwilling to deport illegal aliens. By committing third-degree murder, an undocumented Democrat can be thrown out of the country — if only to spare her from jail time:

A woman who was in the U.S. illegally when she allegedly ran over and killed a disabled man in Massachusetts last year could be deported to her native Guatemala without standing trial here.

Scott Coxall, 39, was killed after he was hit by a car driven by Bianca Contreras while crossing the street in downtown Waltham around 6 p.m. Nov. 23, 2011, according to police. Contreras, who police say fled the scene, was slated to stand trial when a federal immigration judge sitting in Boston ruled Tuesday that she should be deported. Federal officials now intend to release Contreras from custody without trying her for motor vehicle homicide, which the victim’s father called outrageous. …

Authorities claim that Contreras was traveling double the speed limit when she struck Coxall. …

If the approval for deportation is not reversed, Contreras will be free as soon as the plane hits the ground in Guatemala.

In a country run by liberals, privileged groups like illegal aliens can literally get away with murder. I wonder if she’ll still be calling herself Bianca Contreras when she sneaks back into the country a few months from now and runs down someone else.

Springtime for Necrophiliac Muslims

Despite the reputation earned by Mohammad, Islamic sexuality isn’t all about raping children. There’s also the fun the faithful can have with their dead wives:

Egyptian husbands will soon be legally allowed to have sex with their dead wives for up to six hours after their death, local media is claiming.

The controversial new law is claimed to be part of a raft of measures being introduced by the Islamist-dominated parliament.

It will also see the minimum age of marriage lowered to 14 and the ridding of women’s rights of getting education and employment.

It used to be Egypt was governed by our ally, the relatively civilized Hosni Mubarak. But then the Obama Regime pulled the rug out from under him à la Jimmy Carter and the Shah of Iran, helping to usher in what the liberal media calls the “Arab Spring.”

But don’t expect them to let Alice Cooper tour.

Obama Drags Federal Government’s Favorability to Lowest Level Since Clinton Era

Finally, a silver lining to the Obama Regime: it has instilled a healthy distrust and dislike of federal authority:

Today, just one in three has a favorable view of the federal government — the lowest level in 15 years, according to a Pew survey. The majority of Americans remain satisfied with their local and state governments — 61 percent and 52 percent, respectively — but only 33 percent feel likewise about the federal government.

In 2002, nearly double that figure, 64 percent viewed the federal government favorably, and Americans held their local and state governments in similar esteem, at 67 percent and 62 percent, respectively. …

The poll also reveals that more Americans trust their state governments to be honest, efficient and less partisan than the federal government.

Obama’s legacy is already secure.

Moonbat Dies After Attempting to Live on Sunlight Alone

Once again we see that moonbattery can be hazardous to your health:

Swiss newspaper Tages-Anzeiger reports that a woman starved to death after embarking on a spiritual diet that required her to stop eating or drinking and live off sunlight alone.

The Zurich newspaper reported Wednesday that the unnamed Swiss woman in her fifties decided to follow the radical fast in 2010 after viewing an Austrian documentary about an Indian guru who claims to have lived this way for 70 years.

Sure, and Obama claims to mean America well. The problem is that moonbats can trick themselves into believing even the most preposterous lies.

Dem Senator: Offshore Wind Farms Can Save Floundering Post Office

Other than exert force, there is nothing government can do as well as the private sector. This includes delivering the mail, as the never-ending troubles of the USPS confirm. But wait — Demorrhoids have found a green solution. Senator Tom Carper (D-DE) explains that we can save the Post Office by storing electricity from offshore wind farms in the batteries of its aging delivery trucks. I’m not making this up:

At least the Dem-controlled Senate makes itself useful by providing employment to people who would otherwise be lying on their backs in straitjackets, scribbling on rubber walls with crayons held between their toes.

General Electric’s 57,000-Page Tax Return

If you’re still recovering from the check you wrote on April 15 and want to make a case against our absurdly byzantine crony capitalist tax code, rest it with this story from last fall:

General Electric, one of the largest corporations in America, filed a whopping 57,000-page federal tax return earlier this year but didn’t pay taxes on $14 billion in profits. The return, which was filed electronically, would have been 19 feet high if printed out and stacked.

The sole purpose of corporate taxation is that it allows for Big Government “picking winners and losers,” as Paul Ryan puts it. Not even corporations that lack GE’s cozy relationship with the Obama Regime pay the taxes themselves; all costs are passed along to customers. In any case, the government’s main source of income is Ben Bernanke’s metaphorical printing press. The tax that actually produces the most revenue is inflation, a means of taxing every penny in your pocket.

The point of our tax code is to allow bureaucrats to “reward our friends and punish our enemies,” to use Obama’s phrase. Otherwise, corporations would devote their resources to hiring, cutting costs, and producing better products rather than to bribing the leeches in Washington.

A fitting logo for Government Electric.

Disgraced NBC Propagandist Jess Burnside Wins Award

Good news and bad news for NBC’s Jeff Burnside. First the bad:

WTVJ reporter Jeff Burnside was fired Friday after being involved in editing a tape of George Zimmerman’s 911 call before he shot Trayvon Martin.

Burnside had been at the Miami NBC affiliate for 13 years. His doctored tape was similar but not the same as the one run on NBC’s Today show. The tape was edited to make it appear that George Zimmerman had racial motives for defending himself against Trayvon Martin.

Now the good news — despite his scapegoating, Burnside’s intrepid service on behalf of the Establishment Left narrative has earned him the Special Putrid Pea Brain Award from Hugh:

Terror Threats Over $14 Power Bill

The largely useless federal government consumes ever more of the wealth we produce, already approaching an astounding 50% of GDP. People barely grumble in complaint, and some taxpayers even vote for Democrats, who run on a platform of raising taxes and government spending exponentially forever. Yet ask the entitled to pay a $14 electric bill, and watch the reaction. When Deidra Reed of Oklahoma City didn’t like her electric bill, she called up the power company and proclaimed:

“I am going to blow OG&E up cause ya’ll are charging me for electric I haven’t used.”

Deirdra is facing felony charges for making a terrorist threat. She offers this in her defense:

“I don’t have a criminal record,” Reed said. “I’m struggling to pay $40 a month for rent. How the hell am I to buy some bomb equipment. I don’t even know how to make a bomb.”

Reed says she wishes she would have done things differently. As for that electric bill, she is still not convinced she should have to pay. Reed is protesting a bill in the amount of $14.

Those who have gotten ahead by working put their heads down and go on working. Those who have gotten ahead by whining open their mouths and whine.

Deidra Reed lives in a nice enough neighborhood for $40/month.
