    Blackhawks Circle Low Through Chicago Skies as Obama works to perfect contingency plans for November 13 after he loses. Hey give me a second, there are some helicopters flying over pretty low, I think they’re orbiting… be right back.

    ‘Even Obama doing worse under President Obama’.

    Yet another poll the trolls won’t talk about – and it’s only going to get better for us/worse for them from here! I believe there actually was one poll that showed it a dead heat. On what planet that poll was taken I wasn’t able to determine.

    In any case, here’s the “official” reaction to the bad news:

    Obamunist attacks pollster for telling the truth. Yeah Axelrod, you go on believing that. Right through November, you keep it up! Axelrod didn’t even come up with that nonsense – some loser named Ronald Brownstein did. He blathered on about how Obama’s only hope was to hope he could deepen and widen racial divisions in this country. With any luck that strategy will backfire AND blacks will wake up and realize that, among those who’ve lost the most under Obama, they’re good candidates for top honors AND IT IS ALL HIS FAULT! They still want to vote for him, fine, GO AHEAD. Put that fully loaded revolver to your temples and pull the trigger. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

    So why hasn’t this racist lunatic been arrested yet? You know if some white guy was going around talking about how blacks had better change or it would be the end of them or whatnot… well…

    I’ll tell you why – blacks get a free pass under this administration, which is actively working with racist blacks lie looney Louie to ferment a race war in time for the election.

    So how are sales of those electric cars going? That bad? Ford Focus – ZERO SALES in Feb and Mar. And this isn’t even the car that has been burning people’s houses down when they plug it in to recharge it. I feel bad for Ford, actually.

    It’s not right to force someone to eat. I say LET THEM STARVE IF THAT IS WHAT THEY WANT!
    Seriously, forcing someone to eat is cruel and unusual punishment as far as I’m concerned. And if they’re willing to actually eat just enough while claiming to be on a “hunger strike” I say let them keep it real – tell them if they’re on a “hunger strike” then they don’t get anything but water.

    The Wisconsin edition of the Democrats’ ongoing war on women. You would think after making mistake upon mistake attacking women while claiming that’s what the GOP is doing they would wise up and rethink, but no, like a certain troll THEY NEVER LEARN!

    I remember a certain troll posted an image of a man who prefers to believe he’s a woman as if that would persuade us to approve of such nonsense. Here’s a real woman – we don’t accept imposters.

    A paper Richard Linden apparently prepared to present to the U.K. House of Commons, among others. Had a nice e-mail correspondence with him a while back. Now you have to remember, Dr. Lindzen, though viciously attacked by the left and the greeniacs, actually agrees with one or two points critical to their nonsense that others feel are not necessarily true. I won’t speak for him – he makes his positions clear enough and he is firmly in the camp that we have nothing to fear, nothing to be alarmed about and anyone who uses tactics involving fear can only be doing so because they know facts, truth and logic don’t support their position.

    Heck, I just repeated a whole string of posts (condensed into one) because, when I first made them, I thought I wasn’t going to have time/opportunity to make them on the next open thread (here) for a day or two, but then my plans changed. If he’s in a blocking mood I expect he will hit me first, but he even lets the trolls in so I suspect we’re safe, for the moment.


    The Buffett Rule went down to defeat in the Senate yesterday, 51-45 (60 votes were needed for passage). No surprise there; the vote was understood by everyone to be nothing but political theater.


    The Democratic Senate has not adopted a budget in three years. This is not only flagrantly irresponsible, it is a violation of federal law. Outgoing Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad, who is retiring at the end of the year, apparently felt pangs of conscience, because he decided it was finally time for his committee to mark up a budget. He announced that the committee would do so, starting tomorrow. Then, earlier this afternoon, Conrad gave a press conference in which he made the stunning announcement that there will be no budget markup after all. Instead, he will present a budget to the Budget Committee tomorrow. There will be no amendments and there will be no votes; not, at least, until after the election. Apparently Conrad had been proceeding on his own initiative, and at the 11th hour Harry Reid–supported by members of his caucus who do not want to have to go on record in favor of any budget–shut down the process.

    And you may also read (at POWERLINE or elsewhere) about Obama referring to the Falkland Islands as the Maldives.

    Of course, if he had bothered to take basic geography he would know that the Falkland Islands are in the south Atlantic off Argentina and the Maldives are in the Indian Ocean off India.

    And how did the left wing Telegraph report it?

    Barack Obama made an uncharacteristic error, more akin to those of his predecessor George W Bush, by referring to the Falkland Islands as the Maldives.

    Oh where to begin. First, I guess it’s fair to use the word “uncharacteristic” as long as you’re not in one of the 53 (?) states of the U.S. and you’re only talking about when he’s on the teleprompter and actually paying attention to it. But trying to blame this on Bush?

    Please excuse my ignorance, but how do you blokes (and ladies) feel about having a mormon as a presidential candidate?

    In our country. mormonism is considered a cult, as they don’t worship the real Jesus. I imagine it would make some feel uncomfortable?

    Mind you, we have an atheist for a Prime Minister…..

  14. FrankW says:

    Actually most are fine with the Mormon aspect. They are not that much weirder than Catholic, Jew, and certainly more mainstream than Muslim here.
    It is a matter of perspective, remember anything but Catholic in Italy, Mexico, Spain and anything other than Muslim in the Middle East (Israel excluded) is considered cultist. I get the reluctance down there to accept Mormanism.

  15. JNN says:

    To Aussie-John :

    My answer to Aussie-John’s question is that Romney’s Mormonism is not a problem for me. I look at his faith, his honesty, his demeanor, his family, the way he treats others, etc., and I see a good man. Of course, when I look at Obama, I see nothing but evil.

    As the Bible says, we “shall know them by their fruits”:

    15Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

    16Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

    17Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

    These moonbats are part of an anti capitalism group called “Cartel”: Brazil’s Sweeney Todd: Negromonte Family Cannibals Cooked Babysitters in Pies

    Three persons are under arrest a Brazilian in the state of Pernambuco for murder, having killed three women and eaten parts of their bodies, while the remainders were made into meat pies for sale to the public. Based on police reports, the Folha daily in Brazil noted that Jorge Beltrao Negromonte da Silveira (51), his wife Isabel Cristina Torreao Pires da Silveira (51), and his girlfriend Bruna Cristina Oliveira da Silva (25), committed the stunning crimes in Geranhuns and Olinda, some 200 miles from the city of Recife on Brazil’s coast. The three accused criminals lived under the same roof.

    Living with the macabre adults was a 5-year-old girl, who is believed to be the daughter of Jessica, a 17-year-old girl from Olinda who disappeared in 2008.

    Police Commissioner Demócrito de Oliveira of Garanhuns said in a press conference that “there may have been men among the victims,” but refused to provide further details so “not to cause panic.” The commissioner said that the trio is being held on charges of homicide, abduction, improper handling of human bodies, and fraud, as well as violations of the city health code. According to commissioner Oliveira, Isabel da Silveira had sold meatpies, known as empanadas, stuffed with human flesh.

    According to local police, the three murderers belong to an esoteric Brazilian sect that considers that human beings overpopulate the world, and thus practice cannibalism and bizarre rituals to supposedly cleanse the world of human beings. They said that they had heard ‘voices’ that gave orders to murder certain women who they believed to be evil. They were arrested on April 12.

    “Without contraception and abortion, imagine how many Democrats there would be today.”

    Actually you bring up an important point. For a second, let’s leave contraception alone, and just concentrate on abortion and what friends the democrats are to the minority community.

    Every day in America, an average of 3,315 human beings lose their lives to abortion12. Based on the percentages above, between 666-829 of those babies are Hispanic, between 1,193-1,197 are white, and between 995-1,207 are black. Not only are black children being killed at a far greater percentage than white children, it’s possible they’re being killed in greater numbers, period.

    That’s right, minorities. The democrats are cheering you on as your unborn babies are sacrificed to the god of “Woman’s Rights.” Soon, blacks will cease to be the largest minority, with half a million black babies sacrificed every year.

    Democrats want to keep abortion legal, available, and wish to keep government money flowing to abortion clinics so that poor (minority) women have access to abortion. So keep voting democrat, and help fulfill Margaret Sanger’s dreams.

    Please excuse my ignorance, but how do you blokes (and ladies) feel about having a mormon as a presidential candidate?

    In our country. mormonism is considered a cult, as they don’t worship the real Jesus. I imagine it would make some feel uncomfortable?

    Your confession of ignorance is noted and appreciated. Mormons have been considered a cult since the church was founded in 1830. Leftists are entirely in favor of building divisions between “Christians” since part of their strategy is based upon “divide and conquer.” We saw that earlier this year when the government attacked Roman Catholics through their belief in not using contraceptives.

    At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if I agree with the Catholic view on contraceptives or not; I believe in, and support their right to practice their religion as they see fit, and if that includes avoiding contraceptives or painting their toenails blue, then I support that, even if I don’t personally subscribe to blue toenails.

    Catholics I have known who practice their faith are good, charitable people that I appreciate as friends and neighbors (catholics like Nancy Pelosi…not so much).

    Protestants broke away from the Catholic Church over differences in beliefs (some large, some not so large). At the time they were called cults and worse. Today, protestants of every stripe who practice their faith are good charitable people, that, again, I count as friends and neighbors. (Jesse Jackson and Rev. Wright…..well..again).

    Mormons, aka members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints believe in that Jesus Christ who was born to Mary, lived a perfect life, preached the gospel of peace, and died to overcome death and to make it possible for us to be cleansed from our sins. They also believe that he rose from the grave on the third day and lives today. He is the only begotten son of God the Father, and the only name whereby we may be saved. Maybe you believe in a different Jesus, but that is the one that I worship and attempt to follow.

    As Jodie and others have posted here, Mormons who follow their faith tend to be good, charitable people, who I count as friends and neighbors. I think Mitt falls into that group. (Harry Reid…….well the Catholics have Nancy Pelosi, etc….)

    Personally I wouldn’t vote for Mitt because he is a Mormon, nor would I vote against him because he is a Mormon.

    At the end of the day, religion is used by a wedge issue and is destructive to the democratic process.

    Even if she is sentenced to death for this heinous crime, some bleeding heart moonbat lawyer will argue that she must be mentally ill for wanting to have been a mother.

    I’m not jesting, either. The radical moonbat lawyer types who devote their energies to socially just pursuits, like sparing convicted murderers, do look down on parenthood as being crazy. In their demented minds, they can’t envision how a sane person would want to raise children instead of file lawsuits and attend cocktail parties and fundraisers for left wing causes currently in vogue.

    “We just talked about his hair,” said a hairdresser named Leah, who recognized Edwards from a photo.

    An Abbreviated Round-Up of Gross Incivility in Obamaland

    We all want to be civil, right?

    Just last year, with the deepest sincerity, our president implored Americans to engage in more civil discourse, to be more tolerant of disparate opinions and less confrontational, to “sharpen our instincts for empathy,” and to search our souls for answers to America’s disunity following the shooting of Rep. Gabby Giffords.

    Either many of Barack Hussein Obama’s rabid supporters didn’t get that civility memo or they interpreted it as a veiled call to arms since they immediately ratcheted up their uncivil, vile, mean-spirited invective after the president’s Tucson speech in total disregard of his heart-felt appeal.

    Almost three years later, with a national election looming, Obama’s armies have taken to even more reprehensible rhetoric and, to supplement their words, have launched an unprecedented wave of deadly violence.

    Cynics like Robin Leach foolishly think the president of the United States craves that gross incivility and mindless violence serve as tools to create civil unrest and a possible race war to help pave his way to a second term. He may be right.

    A few selected instances reflecting the ratcheting but precious little soul-searching:

    . A tourist in Baltimore was assaulted by a black man and, adding severe insult to his injuries, he was beaten, robbed, and stripped naked on a public street by a crowd of blacks who later boasted about the crime they had committed.

    . Former world heavyweight boxing champion and disgraced, convicted felon Mike Tyson weighed in on the Trayvon Martin affair by opining that “It’s a disgrace that man [George Zimmerman] hasn’t been shot yet. Forget about him being arrested–the fact that he hasn’t been shot yet is a disgrace.”

    . Obama buddy, black Harvard Professor Charles Ogletree, suggested on Al Sharpton’s National Network Convention that whites would be given preference had a black killed a white man instead of the half-hispanic Zimmerman killing Trayvon Martin. . .

    I’m less concerned about Romney’s Mormonism than I am with some of his past actions.

    I’d rather have a Mormon than the moslem we have in office now.

    Although some would call him a member of the twisted cult headed by “Rev” Wright.

    Mormonism actually has a lot in common with Islam. Both were started by charismatic charlatans who borrowed heavily from Christianity to start their cults.

    The difference is this: I’ve never met a Mormon I didn’t like and many I’ve met I’ve thought were some of the better people I’ve met despite my own personal doubts about their beliefs.

    I think Carter was a Baptist and we got through his 4 years just fine. Clinton was some sort of other cult offshoot under the Christian umbrella. We made it through 8 years of him. In 4 years Obama has done serious damage to America and the world in general so let’s be content to see how the first Mormon President does and if he doesn’t do well we can send him packing after 4 years too.
