…..all because he supported “traditional marriage”. How SICK is that! How would you like to show up for work tomorrow and a “pink slip” was in your in-box saying you were fired because you were married and you supported “traditional marriage”?…….Papa Mike
Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich resigned today after taking heat for supporting traditional marriage. Reuters reported:
Mozilla Chief Executive Brendan Eich has stepped down, the company said on Thursday, after an online dating service urged a boycott of the company’s web browser because of a donation Eich made to opponents of gay marriage.
The software company came under fire for appointing Eich as CEO last month. In 2008, he gave money to oppose the legalization of gay marriage in California, a hot-button issue especially at a company that boasts about its policy of inclusiveness and diversity.
“We didn’t act like you’d expect Mozilla to act,” wrote Mozilla Executive Chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a blog post. “We didn’t move fast enough to engage with people once the controversy started. We’re sorry.”
The next step for Mozilla’s leadership “is still being discussed,” she added, with more information to come next week.
And, how did gay groups know Eich donated money to the Proposition 8 Campaign? Because the Obama IRS leaked this information to a gay-advocacy group in 2012. First Things reported, via The Tatler:
Amazingly enough, it is entirely due to the fact that Eich made a $1,000 donation to the campaign urging a ‘yes’ vote on California’s Proposition 8. When this fact first came to light in 2012, after the Internal Revenue Service leaked a copy of the National Organization for Marriage’s 2008 tax return to a gay-advocacy group, Eich, who was then CTO of Mozilla, published a post on his personal blog stating that his donation was not motivated by any sort of animosity towards gays or lesbians, and challenging those who did not believe this to cite any “incident where I displayed hatred, or ever treated someone less than respectfully because of group affinity or individual identity.”
Are you kidding me, DIMocrats after yet another shooting at Fort Hood have the nerve to talk about GUN CONTROL? What we all should be talking about is why the hell is Obama disarming our brave SOLDIERS & MARINES here at home where they work and live. They are armed and protecting us abroad while they are at war, but here, after the many times they have been murdered and wounded they are unarmed? How SICK is that?……Papa Mike
Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America released the following statements in response to the shooting at Ft. Hood today in which four people were killed (including the shooter by his own hand) and 16 were injured. A fact sheet on the 2009 mass shooting at Ft. Hood is availablehere.
“Our thoughts are with all those at Ft. Hood tonight as another tragedy unfolds among the heroes who have given their utmost for our country,” said Mark Glaze, executive director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns. “We don’t know all the details, but days like this remind us that killers with illegal guns murder 33 more people every day across America. This March marked the first month in 11 years with no military fatalities in Iraq or Afghanistan. And yet we start the spring with military fatalities on our own home front.”
“Moms’ hearts sunk again today as we learned the news of another shooting at Fort Hood. The victims and their families are in our thoughts and prayers right now,” said Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. “We send our soldiers into the line of fire, but we don’t expect that battleground to be here at home, as it was again today. While we don’t know all of the facts, we do know that preventable gun deaths are a public health epidemic, and mothers across the country are more committed than ever to doing what we can to end it, once and for all.”
On October 23, 2013, Asnuntuck Community College (ACC) student Nicholas Saucier had a videotaped conversation about recent gun legislation with Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy, who was visiting campus as part of an ongoing conference.
A Connecticut community college suspended a student veteran for his aggressive questioning of Democratic Gov. Dannel Malloy during a public forum, prompting a First Amendment advocacy group to condemn the college for its flagrant disrespect for free speech and due process.
The student, Nicholas Saucier, tried to get Malloy to answer questions about his support for gun control legislation, which has put Saucier’s ammunition manufacturing business in jeopardy. Saucier followed Malloy to his car after the governor finished speaking at a public forum at Asnuntuck Community College. The exchange took place in October of last year, and was captured on video.
Shortly thereafter, Saucier received notice from the administration that he was suspended on grounds that his “continued presence on campus would present a danger to the persons, property and/or academic process of the College.”
Many of the email’s that I have sent or forwarded that had any anti Obama in it were negated by Snopes. I thought that was odd. Check this out.
Shades of Krystalnacht, Snopes, Soros and the Supreme Court’s Kagan. We-l-l-l-l now, I guess the time has come to check out Snopes! Ya’ don’t suppose it might not be a good time to take a second look at some of the stuff that got kicked in the ditch by Snopes, do ya’?
We’ve known that it was owned by a lefty couple but hadn’t known it to be financed by Soros!
Snopes is heavily financed by George Soros, a big time supporter of Obama and many other left wing organizations! In our Search for the truth department, we find what I have suspected on many occasions.
I went to Snopes to check something about the dockets of the new Supreme Court Justice. Elena Kagan, who Obama appointed, and Snopes said the email was false and there were no such dockets.
So I Googled the Supreme Court, typed in Obama-Kagan, and guess what?
Yep, you got it; Snopes Lied! Everyone of those dockets are there.
So Here is what I wrote to Snopes:
Referencing the article about Elana Kagan and Barak Obama dockets:
The information you have posted stating that there were no such cases as claimed and the examples you gave are blatantly false.
I went directly to the Supreme Courts website, typed in Obama Kagan and immediately came up with all of the dockets that the article made reference to.
I have long suspected that you really slant things but this was really shocking.
As Jeff Sessions said today… Our Immigration system is in total collapse…
The government reported today… in 2013 the government released over 70,000 legal and illegal immigrants back into OUR society… These men and women have all committed crimes… lots of crimes… This release is all due to the administration’s prosecutorial discrimination policies… When the Pres says we are deporting more illegals now than ever… this just isn’t true…. The way it has always been done is if they catch an illegal sneaking into the country… he is immediately sent back to Mexico… and not reported in the deportation numbers… but now, under this administration, they include these “send backs” in the deportation numbers… Fuzzy math.
Our whole system is in collapse… and getting worse every day…
One ICE agent said just recently they caught an illegal sneaking into the country with over 200 pounds of marijuana… this is his 14th deportation… sickening isn’t it?
Okay, Obama and his crew have used the IRS to harass conservative political groups, delay their granting of tax deductible status while letting “progressive” groups sail thru, including Obama’s half-brother’s sham organization, and generally broken many laws and all decency by these vile tactics. They have turned the IRS loose on personal critics like Sarah Palin’s father and Dr. Ben Carson. Carson, you know, that black guy who is a fave rave of the raaaacccciiiisssst tea party. Yeh, that guy. Had the uppityness to point out the wrong headedness of leftist policies while Obama was on the podium.
Leftists simply shrug and yawn and dismiss the facts as lies (ala Harry Reid) or choose to not care. They know that a Republican administration is far less likely to scoff at the law, so when the Dems get the boot, they figure they have little to worry about. Probably right.
Next up, the IRS has been looking over conservative website and other social media to track comments and “likes” to select targets. It’s coming down the pike and may break sooner rather than later. Sorce is a U.S. Congress critter who is in a position to know. Just call this a Monday tidbit of further corruption in the current regime.

President Obama’s first meeting with Pope Francis produced a little schism of its own.
The Vatican and White House gave starkly different versions Thursday of Mr. Obama’s meeting with Francis.
PHOTOS: Awesome rifles: The best and the baddest
The president’s account downplayed the Catholic Church’s concerns about religious freedom in the United States and Obamacare’s mandate to pay for contraception.
The pontiff and the president were cordial in the televised portions of their meeting, but a subtle competition to set the agenda played out after the meeting, which went well beyond its scheduled half-hour.
“We actually didn’t talk a whole lot about social schisms in my conversations with His Holiness,” Mr. Obama said at a press conference in Rome. “In fact, that really was not a topic of conversation.”
Mr. Obama deflected a reporter’s question about the extent of his discussion with the pope on the contraceptive mandate by saying that Francis “actually did not touch in detail” on the subject. The administration has been locked in a lengthy legal and political battle with the U.S. Catholic Church hierarchy over Obamacare and issues such as abortion and same-sex marriage.
The Vatican, however, issued a statement after the meeting saying the president’s discussions with Francis and two other top Vatican officials focused “on questions of particular relevance for the [Catholic] Church in [the United States], such as the exercise of the rights to religious freedom, life and conscientious objection” — issues that have fueled divisions between Mr. Obama and the church.
THE NAVY HAS A LONG STANDING TRADITION TO HONOR FORMER PRESIDENTS BY NAMING A SHIP FOR THEIR SERVICE TO THE NATION. ONE OF THE LARGEST AND MOST FORMIDABLE SHIPS AFLOAT TODAY IS THE MIGHTY USS RONALD REAGAN. A MASSIVE NUCLEAR CARRIER WHICH IS A REAL TRIBUTE TO A GREAT PRESIDENT AND BELOVED LEADER. RUMORS ARE NOW BEING CIRCULATED THAT SOME NAVAL LEADERS HAVE SECRETLY AUTHORIZED THE BUILDING OF THE USS BARACK OBAMA AND THAT THE CONTRACT HAS BEEN AWARDED TO THE “ACME” BOAT COMPANY LOCATED IN WATERLOO, IOWA. REPORTEDLY SOME $1,000 HAS BEEN SET ASIDE FROM THE PENTAGONS PETTY CASH RESERVE TO PAY FOR THIS IMPORTANT PROJECT. ONE ADMIRAL, WHO SPOKE OFF-THE-RECORD, IS SAYING THAT THIS VESSEL WOULD REFLECT OBAMA’S REAL SERVICE TO AMERICA, WHILE YET ANOTHER UN-NAMED SOURCE AT THE NAVAL DEPARTMENT, SAID THIS WAS FAR TO GREAT AN HONOR TO BESTOW ON THE MEMORY OF BARACK OBAMA
OBAMA’S VIEW ON INTERNATIONAL BORDERS IS JUST LIKE ONE MAY IMAGINE—ALL OVER THE F**KING MAP. WE ALL KNOW IF HE COULD HE WOULD ERASE THE BORDERS OF ISRAEL AND ALLOW THAT STATE TO BE INCORPORATED INTO THE GREATER ARAB MIDDLE EAST AND THAT AS FAR AS AMERICAN BORDERS ARE CONCERNED HE WOULD CREATE OPEN BORDERS WITH VIRTUALLY NO CONTROLS. AFTER ALL HE FEELS THAT MOST COMING ACROSS THE BORDER FROM THE SOUTH WOULD EAGERLY VOTE FOR DEMOCRATS WHO ARE DANGLING ALL THAT FREE STUFF IN FRONT OF THEM. AND AS FOR THE RECENT RUSSIAN INCURSION INTO CRIMEA IN THE UKRAINE, IF THE TRUTH BE KNOW, HE COULD CARE LESS. THE ONLY CONCERN THAT HE HAS ON THE FATE OF UKRAINE IS THAT PUTIN IS MAKING HIM LOOK LIKE A BUNGLING IDIOT—IN THAT RESPECT PUTIN IS ABSOLUTELY RIGHT, FOR OUR PRESIDENT IS JUST THAT.
My husband has a long record of money problems. He runs up huge credit card bills and at the end of the month, if I try to pay them off, he shouts at me, saying I am stealing his money. He says pay the minimum and let our kids worry about the rest, but already we can hardly keep up with the interest.
Also he has been so arrogant and abusive toward our neighbors that most of them no longer speak to us. The few that do are an odd bunch to whom he has been giving a lot of expensive gifts, running up our bills even more. Also, he has gotten religious. One week he hangs out with Catholics and the next with people who say the Pope is the Anti-Christ, and the next he’s on his knees 7 times a day with Muslims.
Finally, the last straw. He’s demanding that before anyone can be in the same room with him, they must sign a loyalty oath. It’s just so horribly creepy!
Can you help?
Suck it up and stop whining, Michelle. You’re getting to live in the White House for free, travel the world, and have others pay for everything for you. You can divorce the jerk any time you want. The rest of us are stuck with the idiot for 3 more years.
It just keeps getting better and
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A California Democrat state senator is being held on $500,000 bail after appearing handcuffed in shackled in federal court.
DIMocrat Sen. Leland Yee is charged with six counts of depriving the public of honest services and one count of conspiracy to traffic in guns without a license. He and 25 other men are named in the criminal complaint filed Tuesday.
Court documents say Yee or one of his campaign staffers accepted at least $42,800 in cash or campaign contributions from undercover FBI agents in exchange for carrying out agents’ requests. He is also accused of trying to help an undercover agent obtain weapons from a Muslim rebel group.
Yee looked downcast as he appeared in court Wednesday. He told the judge he understands the charges against him.
And now we have one of the biggest anti-gun DIMocrat in California and he gets busted for illegally trafficking in guns and dealing with a muslim rebel group to boot.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says his granddaughter Ryan Elisabeth Reid has received “harassing phone calls” and “negative attention on the internet” since word surfaced that Reid’s campaign paid thousands of dollars last year for items from a jewelry store she owns that were given to supporters as gifts.
“As a grandparent, I say enough is enough,” Reid said in a statement.
The unusual emotional plea came just as the amount of money Reid will repay his campaign doubled to more than $31,000 after additional payments to the jewelry company were found in Federal Election Commission filings from 2012.
“My granddaughter has been the target of harassing phone calls, strangers tracking her down and knocking on her door and negative, unwanted attention on the internet. This has gone too far and it needs to stop now. I deeply regret any role I had in creating this situation but now, as a grandparent, I say enough is enough,” Reid said in a statement released late Wednesday.
“I am reimbursing my campaign for the amount spent on thank-you gifts produced by my granddaughter, a professional and talented artist who produced gifts for my staff and supporters that had a personal connection to my family and my hometown of Searchlight, Nevada,” Reid said.
“I believe my granddaughter is a very talented individual and I admire her work tremendously, but I’ve decided that it would be best to pay for her work out of my own pocket. My office is reviewing our records to ensure that we reimburse my campaign for the full amount.”
On Tuesday, Reid announced he would repay his campaign nearly $17,000 for purchases from Ryan Elisabeth Reid’s company.
Think we were always told how humble and down to earth he was… this certainly paints a different picture of our humble Veep… wonder what in the world our pres and VP are costing us for their fun and games…
As Nancy Pelosi… there just aren’t any ways to cut the budget except the military!
HOW DO WE CUT THE BUDGET? ? ? ? ? ?
Way to go, Joe!!!!!!
Every Friday, the vice president takes a helicopter designated as Marine Two from the vice president’s residence in northwest Washington to Joint Base Andrews in Maryland.
He then hops on Air Force Two to fly back to his home in Delaware . At the end of the weekend, he returns on Air Force Two, usually a Boeing C-32.
On Saturdays in warm weather, Biden regularly returns to Andrews on the airplane to play golf at the base with President Obama. After the game, he flies back to Delaware . On Sunday evening, he returns on the plane to Washington — all at taxpayer expense.
The Boeing C-32 is a specially configured Boeing 757-200 commercial jet. The cost of flying the plane is $22,000 an hour, so each half-hour trip to or from Delaware costs about $10,000. Each golf game costs taxpayers $20,000. At that rate, the annual cost to taxpayers of Biden’s weekend trips is well over $1 million. That does not include so-called deadhead flights when the plane often flies back to Washington empty and then returns empty to pick up Biden. Continue reading →
Anti-gun Democrat Senator Leland Lee was indicted today on arms trafficking and public corruption.
Senator Yee had made repeated attempts to outlaw popular semi-automatic rifles, and his most recent effort, SB 374, was vetoed by Governor Jerry Brown last year. Yee had vowed to reintroduce the legislation again in 2014, but will likely be more concerned about finding a good defense lawyer instead.
Federal prosecutors unsealed an indictment against state Sen. Leland Yee in court Wednesday, accusing him of conspiring to commit wire fraud and traffic firearms.
In all, 26 people, including former school board president Keith Jackson, were indicted on charges related to an extensive crime ring headed by well-known Chinatown figureRaymond Chow, who was also arrested and charged Wednesday.
The indictment alleges Yee and Jackson defrauded “citizens of honest services” and were involved in a scheme to traffic firearms in exchange for thousands in campaign donations to the senator.
