    Ever notice how when Elizabeth Warren cries she looks just like the crying Indian in the Keep America Beautiful ads?

    Funny thing, really, she’s just as “Native” as Iron Eyes Cody was.

    Bad Barry
    Before the trolls show up to blame rich Republican investors mad that their high risk bets went bad…….
    Tofteland had $253,000 in an account with the brokerage firm, money he planned to use to cover his farm’s operating loan. As MF Global went bankrupt last fall, customers’ segregated accounts were raided in clear violation of exchange rules. When the dust settled, more than 38,000 MF Global customers — including thousands of farmers, ranchers and grain operators who used the firm to hold money for transactions on the futures market — were out more than $1.2 billion.

    Most of MF Global’s customers have received 72% of their money back. Executives at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and Chicago Board of Trade like to tout that fact as a great feat. But they’d better duck if they ever step foot on a farm — they might just get punched in the jaw.

    Tofteland is still out $70,000.

    “Pocket change for these guys, right,” he says with disgust. “This money wasn’t an investment. This was money that they just took.

    Obama gave intel to filmmaker that threatens U.S. security: Sworn documents

    “The Obama administration now confirms to a federal court that it released sensitive information to help with a film that was set to portray Barack Obama as ‘gutsy.’ If this is true, then the Obama administration was lying to the American people when it said the leaks were no big deal,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

  12. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    Where it gets interesting is that the former Democratic governor, and senator, not to mention primary bundler for president Obama, is, in the eyes of the members of the committee, innocent: All the democrats on the Investigations Subcommittee refused to sign off on the findings, meaning that to them, Corzine is completely innocent. That this is purely a political move is glaringly obvious. It is also abhorrent, because as long as political ideology gets in the way of pursuing and imposing justice, the Banana States of America will remain just that.

    Congressional report ties Middle East terrorists to Mexican drug cartels

    The report, released Thursday, is titled “A Line in the Sand: Countering Crime, Violence and Terror at the Southwest Border.” It found that the “Southwest border has now become the greatest threat of terrorist infiltration into the United States.” It specifically cites a “growing influence” from Iranian and Hezbollah terror forces in Latin America.

    Dennis did not disclose the financial terms. But in 2010, she said that gas drillers had offered more than $800,000 for the right to drill. The landowner also receives royalty payments from any gas produced from the property.

  15. Bob Roberts says:

    It’s on.

    Two major Israeli newspapers are reporting that rockets fired from Egypt have hit Israel.

    “Terrorists in the Sinai Peninsula launched rockets into Israel Friday night,” reports the Jerusalem Post. “The rockets fell near an Israeli village on the southern border, causing some damage, but no injuries.”

    Egypt is baiting Israel and when Israel responds Egypt will claim that, in response to Israeli aggression, they are going to attack Israel.

  16. Bob Roberts says:

    Meanwhile, here in San Diego County:


    The shoppers lined up at an El Cajon Best Buy more than a week early in anticipation for the stores’ Black Friday sale have been asked to leave the property.

    On Wednesday, Rhiannon Buckingham told 10News she lined up because she wanted to make sure she got the best deal.

    “Last year, I came on Tuesday and I was 17th in line,” she said. “They only had 15 TVs.”

    Good GOD. Spend a week camping out in front of a store to save a few bucks on a TV?

    Must be moonbats who voted for Obama and are on SSI/Food stamps.

    I have no idea… I never, ever “keep up with the Kardashians”, so I really don’t know.

    Is Kim a moonbat? From what I’ve heard about her, read about her, she pretty much would have to be. Plus the way she wound up handling this:

    Praying for everyone in Israel

    Now that was pretty cool.

    However, the lunatic liberal moonbats immediately showed more of that wonderful “civility” they’re so famous for and always known to demand from others:

    Kill yourself.

    Die in hell.

    I pray you will die Kim.

    U’re so stupid!! U should die at there! Bitch.

    Israel is not fking country!

    You are a disgrace to your people and your ancestors, educate yourself.

    israel is literally killing and burning families in palestine.

    People like you are the reason I want to die

    Further enhancing your reputation as a dumb porn star

    Even after she 1) Added “praying for Palestine” and 2) Deleted the tweets and posted a moonbat apology/explanation, the hate tweets continued:

    Kiss my ass and go to hell with Israel.

    i hope kanye west is gonnna rape ur fuckenn mouth till u dieeee—

    Ill pray you will die kim

    please just kill yourself now as everyone clearly hates you after this tweet.—

    Go die in a hole full of shit “@m7mdwaleed94: I got 5 fingers & middle one is for you 🙂


    And as far as the whole Benghazi thing goes, the administration fixed the intelligence because it had to hide the fact that al Qaeda, in its death throes due to President Obama as we all know, killed Americans on Sept. 11.

    It is ironic that Obama is using the very tactics he continually condemned while Bush was President to prevent an attack here, which surely would have cost him the election despite obamaphones, forever unemployment checks and food stamps.

  20. Bob Roberts says:

    Obama loses either way:

    Either he picked an incompetent Holder who failed to inform him of the whole Petraeus mess early enough OR Holder is lying and Obama knew all along and kept it until it was needed to distract at a key point during the electioneering.

    Either Obama hired an incompetent Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who can’t seem to explain how even though he knew from the start that al Queda was behind the 9/11 attack in Benghazi, that critical fact got “erased” and ignored, well, by everyone in the Obama administration anyway, for two whole weeks… OR Obama ordered that fact to be scrubbed because he’s been saying all along he personally killed al Queda and it wouldn’t look good that no, in fact he didn’t, in fact al Queda is still pretty much killing Americans at will due to Obama’s incompetence.

    Either Obama hired an incompetent Acting CIA Director Mike Morell… well just re-read the last paragraph starting at the first instance of the word “who”

    And as for Susan Rice, either she blatantly lied or Obama ordered she be given deliberately falsified data.

    In these and many other cases, no matter which way you slice it, it looks pretty bad for Obama.

    My money is on, in each case, the worst possible scenario.

    We are dealing with the worst possible President, after all. Each of these things has his incompetent paw prints all over!

    The dark clouds of a world war are gathering.

    Mark my words.

    What was it Einstein said?

    I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.

  22. Bob Roberts says:

    Hey, and they’re going to keep up the streak:


    WW I: Woodrow Wilson DEMOCRAT (Also controlled Congress)

    WW II: Franklin D. Roosevelt DEMOCRAT (Also controlled Congress)

    WW III: Barack HUSSEIN Obama DEMOCRAT (As of now, control Senate – if war occurs after 2014 have a chance to control House too.)

  23. Bob Roberts says:

    Moonbat insider burglarizes moonbat Seattle HQ, tries and fails to make it look random.

    I don’t see what their complaint is – the burglar just followed the Obama/Democrat model and “redistributed” their stuff.

    Have burglary tools, will travel!

    Maybe THEY broke into Dem HQ?

    Hmmm were any LEGOs reported missing from DEM HQ?

    Note to self – disassemble all LEGO firearms TODAY!

    A loser of a lawsuit, though maybe not with an activist, moonbat judge.

    The specified storage, as everyone knows, is the total size of the installed drive. Everyone also knows that some of that space is taken up by the OS and any other pre-installed software when you purchase the machine.

    In a fair court this lawsuit will go nowhere.

    Microsoft correctly advertised the size of the drive in the device. The specified size is understood to be the total size and it is understood you have to deduct the size of preinstalled software to determine the actual available storage space.

    Except when you voted for Obama twice. That takes math and, of course, that’s something Obama voters never learned.

    Maybe there’s an app for that on the obamaphone?

    “””Firestorm Erupts Over Virginia’s Education Goals

    As part of Virginia’s waiver to opt out of mandates set out in the No Child Left Behind law, the state has created a controversial new set of education goals that are higher for white and Asian kids than for blacks, Latinos and students with disabilities…

    Here’s what the Virginia state board of education actually did. It looked at students’ test scores in reading and math and then proposed new passing rates. In math it set an acceptable passing rate at 82 percent for Asian students, 68 percent for whites, 52 percent for Latinos, 45 percent for blacks and 33 percent for kids with disabilities….””

  26. Logic_Mine says:

    BENGAHZI – Obama defends Rice by saying “Come After Me.”

    If that isn’t the biggest display of empty courage I’ve seen. He acts all tough then ignores request from Senators to answer for Bengahzi.

    He is an EMPTY shell of a real man.

    ISRAEL – Egypt supporting the Palestinians (as expected) and
    OBAMA – Pressing ISRAEL for restraint..(ie also supporting Palestine!)

    No big surprise there. By the time Obama’s REIGN is over, the United states will have no ALLIES LEFT!

    Get ready folks. You think getting Obama out of office is our sole problem? No, Even if we do weed out the cockroach, his administration is busy at work turning our friends into our enemies.

    The name Richard Windsor may sound innocuous, but it is allegedly one of the secret “alias” email accounts used by Obama EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson.

    “That is the name — sorry, one of the alias names — used by Obama’s radical EPA chief to keep her email from those who ask for it,” Chris Horner, senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute and author of the new book “The Liberal War on on Transparency.”

    In his book, Horner revealed the existence of “alias” email accounts used by EPA administrators. The first such transparency dodge, he writes, came from Carol Browner, former director of the Obama White House Office of Energy and Climate Change Policy and Bill Clinton’s EPA administrator.

    CONGRESS demands they reveal secret e-mail addresses – don’t bet they will do it!

    No wonder the economy is in such a mess!

    Scientologist spent $30 mil to cover up death of Lisa McPherson

    Well, at least he won’t be raping any women any more…

    On the other hand you can bet he WILL be a danger to society:

    A California appeals court has granted the release of a quadriplegic rapist who was considered an excessive cost to the state.
    Steven Martinez was convicted of several counts of violent rape in 1998 after he drove his car over a woman, assaulted her, kidnapped her and then raped her.
    While serving his sentence in 2001, Martinez was attacked by two other inmates and was stabbed in the neck. The wound paralyzed him instantly. As an inmate, his caretakers say he remains an “angry, repulsive person.” Martinez applied last year to become the first inmate freed under a medical parole law that aims to reduce prison costs. He was turned down as a public safety risk. An appeals court in San Diego rejected that decision last month and ordered his release, according to the Associated Press.
    His parents have agreed to take care of him in their San Diego home.

    There goes the neighborhood!

    “We have consistently opposed parole in this case because the inmate has made significant threats to his caretakers and nurses,” a statement from the District Attorney’s office read. “One court of appeal and the parole board agreed and have previously found that despite his condition, this inmate is still able to carry out his threats using other people, thus creating a public safety issue.”

    I have seen the future of outdoor Christmas decorations in Supreme Leader O’s America and it’s pretty dim.
    Was at my local Menards picking up a few things for my outdoor display and noticed a good portion of the outdoor lighting has been given over to battery powered Christmas lights, I’m not talking about the tiny strings powered by a couple of AA or AAA batteries but full sized LED strings powered by 4 D cells with a timer to save battery life.
    I suppose this will be the only way to have Christmas lights after the electric rates skyrocket per Dear Leader’s plan.
    I wonder if we’ll get special exemptions if we have the light up plastic Barack Oclaus on our front lawn.

  33. Bob Roberts says:

    Oh… and they forgot to mention HE IS A DEMOCRAT but you can easily discern that from the context. Particularly the part where he blatantly lied about something he must have known was going to be revealed soon anyway.

    He apologized for his actions and said he used “bad judgment” by acting in porn and by lying about it.

    “A few weeks ago, when asked, I denied this to members of the press,” Suben said. “I regret that and I apologize for it. I was shocked and embarrassed to be confronted with this so many years later. I was embarrassed for my family and friends who have stood by me. I also denied my actions to my family, my friends and my staff.”

    He wouldn’t take questions, including whether he should resign. On his way out of the news conference, several people said “You lied to me, Mark.”

    Suben’s spokeswoman, Aimee Milks, said Suben will not resign.

    Moonbats who voted for Obama and other moonbats not liking the inevitable consequence.

    Plagued by filth, health concerns are mounting on Long Island’s South Shore.

    Streets in one local community are still buried in more than two weeks of trash build-up and another is pumping out rivers of raw sewage.

    A large trash pile the locals in Lido Beach have dubbed “Mount Sandy” sits near the ocean front.

    The next wave of destruction of prosperity and productivity, thanks to Obama and the Democrats, is looming.

    Cold comfort that it will affect moonbats/Democrats too.

    From my last link:

    “There is no way financially my kids can pay what the IRS is going to demand from them nine months after death and keep this ranch intact for their generation and future generations,” said Kester, of the Bear Valley Ranch in Central California.
    Two decades ago, Kester paid the IRS $2 million when he inherited a 22,000-acre cattle ranch from his grandfather. Come January, the tax burden on his children will be more than $13 million.

  36. Bob Roberts says:

    Well, at least he didn’t blend into the crowd all that easily.

    Yeah, typical moonbat. Head out to steal purses wearing a unique, easy to spot spiderman costume. Brilliant.

    Moonbats attempt to redistribute sacred statue.

    A sacred statue, worth nearly $10,000 and weighing roughly 1,000 pounds, was somehow stolen.

    The congregation of the Gandhi Center & Hindu Temple in Wayne is angry and saddened that its beloved statue of Lord Shiva is gone after it was taken in the middle of the night on the holiest day in Hinduism — the New Year.

    No doubt metal thieves – will they get away with it?

  37. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    Who really benefits from the death tax ?
    The estate tax is costly for the IRS to administer and it has harmful social and economic effects. It hurts small business owners, farmers, and successful entrepreneurs who want to transfer family assets to their heirs. The estate tax forces them to spend time and money on elaborate exercises in the legalities of estate-tax counseling, planning and accounting. Alicia Munnell, a member of President Clinton’s Council on Economic Advisors, found that the estate tax imposes compliance costs (tax planning, collection, etc) in excess of $26 billion. This compliance cost exceeds the estate tax’s revenue yield.

    The tax is unfair and economically destructive – it ought to be buried permanently.

    Insurance accounts for one-third of Berkshire Hathaway’s operating profits. If the estate tax were repealed, it’s likely the demand for life insurance policies would drop, and Buffett’s float would sink.

    Petraeus asked socialite to avert anti-Islam stunt

    In March, a Florida radio talk show host named Todd Alan Clem but known as Bubba the Love Sponge said he was going to “deep fat fry” a copy of the Koran as a stunt, the reports said.

    Gen. John Allen, commander of US and NATO troops in Afghanistan, and CIA director David Petraeus, both asked Kelley, who lives in Tampa, to try to intervene and stop the radio host by contacting the city’s mayor, Bob Buckhorn.

    “I have Petraeus and Allen both emailing me about getting this dealt with,” Kelley wrote to the mayor, according to NBC New
