There is not a shred of evidence of what he’s saying, and it’s just another SICK LIE from this “mentally insane” SICK politician!…….Papa Mike
Secondly: Are you dismissing his comment as sour grapes after having his reputation again dinged because of his involvement in the matter? You shouldn’t.
When the majority leader of the United States Senate calls you a Domestic Terrorist, and he has helped his colleagues pass many, many laws that deal very harshly with ‘Domestic Terrorists’, and the legitimacy of his powerbase is challenged and backs down in the desert, you had better take him seriously. He has just been very honest with us all. He has told us what he thinks of us, and he has already told the world how we should be treated. And he has hundreds of political allies currently sitting in elected offices across the country. And his team has a million guns and badges at their disposal, waiting for orders.
When a man tells you who he is, believe him.
Harry Reid is not the first to use the label on those of us who have a respect for our Founding Documents and our Founding Ideals since the events in the desert. You will remember we linked a piece at Politicususa in which Keith Brekhus pointedly called us all Domestic Terrorists. Reuters has an article that is surprisingly objective. They don’t call us Domestic Terrorists, but they do reinforce the idea that the Bundy Affair has ‘emboldened’ Militia groups and their supporters. And we all know how that translates within American Communist circles.
A 65-year-old man faces an array of charges after he allegedly shot a squirrel in his yard Monday morning.

Senator Harry Reid has escalated the war of words over the Cliven Bundy dispute, sensationally labeling the Nevada cattle rancher’s supporters “domestic terrorists” during an event in Las Vegas today.
During a ‘Hashtags & Headlines’ event at the Paris Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Reid referred to Bundy supporters as “Nothing more than domestic terrorists,” adding, “I repeat: what happened there was domestic terrorism.”
Guess again, Barack.
During his interview with President Barack Obama that aired Thursday, CBS News White House correspondent Major Garrett asked if Russian President Vladimir Putin was mocking him and the U.S. military by having a Russian fighter jet buzz a U.S. warship.
Obama responded, “They are not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians. We don’t need a war”

The Review Journal reported:
U.S. Sen. Harry Reid on Thursday called supporters of Bunkerville rancher Cliven Bundy “domestic terrorists” because they defended him against a Bureau of Land Management cattle roundup with guns and put their children in harm’s way.
“They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists,” Reid said during an appearance at a Las Vegas Review-Journal “Hashtags & Headlines” event at the Paris. “I repeat: what happened there was domestic terrorism.”
The BLM shut down its weeklong roundup of Bundy’s cattle Saturday after an armed confrontation with dozens of militia members who had traveled to Southern Nevada from across the country and from neighboring states.

Oversight Committee Responds to New Documents Revealing Lois Lerner and DOJ’s Plan to Persecute Conservative GroupsApril 16, 2014
The Oversight and Government Reform Committee released the following statement on thenew documents discussing potential prosecution of tax exempt groups by the Holder DOJ.
House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and Subcommittee on Economic Growth, Job Creation and Regulatory AffairsChairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) today released the following statements in response to the release of Internal Revenue Service (IRS) documents showing former IRS official Lois Lerner in contact with the Justice Department about potential prosecution of tax-exempt groups:
“The release of new documents underscores the political nature of IRS Tea Party targeting and the extent to which supposed apolitical officials took direction from elected Democrats,” said Chairman Issa. “These e-mails are part of an overwhelming body of evidence that political pressure from prominent Democrats led to the targeting of Americans for their political beliefs.”
“Now I see why the IRS is scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails,”said Chairman Jordan. “Not only do these e-mails further prove the coordination among the IRS, the Federal Election Commission (FEC), the Justice Department and committee Democrats to target conservatives, they also show that had our committee not requested the Inspector General’s investigation when we did, Eric Holder’s politicized Justice Department would likely have been leveling trumped up criminal charges against Tea Party groups to intimidate them from exercising their Constitutional rights.”
For the record - The IRS Conservative Targeting Scandal involved:
- Hundreds of conservative groups were targeted
- At least 5 pro-Israel groups
- Constitutional groups
- Groups that criticized Obama administration
- At least two pro-life groups
- An 83 year-old Nazi concentration camp survivor
- A 180 year-old Baptist paper
- A Texas voting-rights group
- A Hollywood conservative group was targeted and harassed
- Conservative activists and businesses
- At least one conservative Hispanic group
- IRS continued to target groups even after the scandal was exposed
- And… 100% of the 501(c)(4) Groups Audited by IRS Were Conservative
And, now we know they were plotting to prosecute conservative groups.
Utility companies across the country are have been steadily launching initiatives to install smart meters at customers homes, but many have protested, saying that it infringes on their privacy rights and may even cause health issues.TOBY TALBOT/AP
Utility companies across the U.S. are installing smart meters in customers’ homes, touting the technology’s energy-saving ways, but opponents argue that the meters are opening a Pandora’s box of privacy concerns.
The smart energy meters read electric or gas usage, and enable a power company to collect detailed usage data on a particular home or building. But the readings also gather personal information that some critics argue is too intrusive.
What hath Obungler brought to this country? Higher taxes and more poverty.
The median income of American households dropped by $2,627 during President Barack Obama’s first term — and the number of people in poverty rose by about 6,667,000, according to a new report from the Census Bureau.
This reminds me of the joke going around that if the world was ending the New York Slimes (Motto: All the news that fits our views) headline would read: World Ending Tomorrow – Poor And Elderly Hardest Hit
Some 46,496,000 Americans are now in poverty, the highest number ever and a 16.73 percent increase from 2008 when Obama took office.
Overall, 15 percent of Americans are considered to be living in poverty, up from 13.2 percent in 2008.
This is Hope and Change in action. And these people voted overwhelmingly for Oblunder. Jesus H. Christ! They deserve to be poor and this is why they’re poor. They’re freakin’ stupid! It’s like I always say, “The rich get richer because they continue do the things that made them rich. The majority of the poor get poorer because they continue to do the things that made them poor in the first place. Let me count the ways.
1. They drop out of school
2. They have children they cannot afford and in the case of 73% of black children, they are born to single mothers. This is an express ticket to poverty right there.
3. They do not develop a work ethic.
4. They vote For Dimocrats who have policies that keep them poor like union teachers and saying no to charter schools. Meanwhile, these same Dimocrat politicians and many union teachers, send their children to private schools.
Dems would never in a million years call the Koran “offensive.”
Louisiana legislators advanced a bill Thursday that would make the Holy Bible the official Louisiana state book, despite concerns the move could prompt litigation.
“You cannot separate Christianity from the Bible,” said state Rep. Wesley Bishop, D-New Orleans, a lawyer and the son of a preacher. “If you adopt the Bible as the official state book, you also adopt Christianity as the state religion … We are going to open ourselves up to a lawsuit.”
The House Municipal, Parochial and Cultural Affairs Committee voted 8-5 to recommend the legislation to the full House.
State Rep. Thomas Carmody, R-Shreveport, countered that naming an official state book doesn’t equate to establishing a state religion, which isspecifically prohibited in the U.S. Constitution.
“The Holy Bible would be appropriate for the state of Louisiana,” he said, particularly given the state’s strong religious ties. [...]
Other legislators said Carmody’s bill was not inclusive of all types of religions practiced by Louisiana residents.
“As an elected official on this committee and in this building, some of my constituents from the city of New Orleans and around the state will find this type of legislation offensive,” said state Rep. Jared Brossett, D-New Orleans.
“You don’t think it’s offensive to some citizens of this state to select the Bible as the official state book?” asked Rep. Ebony Woodruff, D-Harvey. Woodruff suggested Carmody add “all books of faith like the Quran, the Torah.”
Carmody said he thought the Bible was “the appropriate symbol.” He said the state can have more than one state book, just as it has more than one official jelly.

Just another “Black on White” hate crime you will NEVER see on Obama’s State-Run Network TV…….Papa Mike
BALTIMORE (WJZ) — An evening bike ride for a cyclist turned violent after he was attacked by a group of teenagers–and it’s caught on camera.
Rochelle Ritchie has more.
The man was wearing a helmet with one additional feature his attackers did not know about–a camera positioned on top. Now that video is in the hands of Baltimore City Police, who are combing through the images.
It was a dark Saturday evening when Mike Bowman, 32, peddled his way down Guilford Avenue toward Hampden, where he was meeting friends.
“There’s a bunch of kids that hang there at Lanvale. Before I knew it, there’s a guy chasing me. A bottle goes past my head,” Bowman said.
In this VIDEO you can see a teenager in a white T-shirt chasing Bowman, as he turned and looked behind him. As he crossed the intersection, he was intercepted by several teens on bikes, who knocked him to the ground.
The camera caught the teenagers’ violent actions.
If it takes forever, we stand with you, Pat Smith…
SAN DIEGO, CA — Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke via satellite to attendees of San Diego’s Western Healthcare Leadership Academy on Apr. 11, just days after canceling plans to attend in person. Two protest groups gathered outside the San Diego Convention Center for the conference, but for two different reasons.
One group of 10-15 demonstrators, promoting a single-payer healthcare system, stood across from the Convention Center. While playing a recording of the folk tune “Medicare for All,” the group spoke to passing pedestrians for approximately two hours.
The other protest, directly in front of the Convention Center, included over 40 protestors expressing their opposition to Hillary’s handling of the events surrounding the September 11, 2012 attack on the American diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya.
Organized by the recently-formed group The Difference Matters, those walking the protest line included Benghazi victim Sean Smith’s mother, Pat Smith, and a friend of Ty Woods, another Benghazi victim.

The North Carolina Board of Elections discovered THOUSANDS of residents who voted in both North Carolina and another state in the 2012 elections.
The investigation also found 81 deceased voters that had voter activity since they died.
But you wouldn’t know this from Barack Obama’s speech on Friday.
Obama decried “bogus” accusations of voter fraud in his speech Friday to the Al Sharpton’s National Action Network.
The Hill reported:
President Obama labeled complaints about voter fraud “bogus” and accused Republicans of cynically trying to prevent Americans from accessing the polls in a fiery speech Friday at a civil rights forum hosted by Al Sharpton.
Obama argued that attempts in some states to impose new voter identification restrictions were actually efforts by Republicans to make “it harder, not easier to vote.” And the president said that while voter fraud should be prevented, it rarely occurred.
“So let’s be clear, the real voter fraud is the people who try to deny our rights by making bogus arguments about voter fraud,” Obama said.
Obama sad that the efforts betrayed a weakness within the Republican Party, saying his opposition needed to restrict poll access to remain competitive.
“If your strategy depends on fewer people showing up to vote, that’s not a sign of strength, it’s a sign of weakness,” Obama said.
“What kind of political platform is that?” he added. “Why would you make that part of your agenda, preventing people from voting?”

Zeituni Onyango, President Obama’s illegal alien aunt, died this week of cancer and other complications. I hope she rests in peace. America, however, should be up in arms.
Auntie Zeituni is an enduring symbol of all that is wrong with this country’s immigration “policy” — or rather, its complete lack of a coherent, enforceable system of laws and rules that puts the national interest first. She was a beneficiary of the welfare state run amok, enabled by bipartisan fecklessness. To the bitter end, she bit the hand that fed her with predictable ingratitude and metastatic entitlement.
Zeituni’s 14-year illegal overstay is a reminder that our temporary visa program is an abysmal joke. Like millions of foreign students, business people and tourists to this country, Auntie Zeituni obtained a short-term visitor visa in 2000. It had an expiration date. She was supposed to go back to Kenya in two years after traveling here with her son, who had been accepted at a college in Boston.
But like millions of other “temporary” visa overstayers, Auntie Zeituni never went home. And despite billions spent on homeland security and immigration enforcement, no one ever went looking for her to kick her out of the country after her time was up.
“Liberalism has a kind of Tourette Syndrome these days. It’s constantly saying the words racism and racist. There’s an old saying , if you have the law on your side, argue the law. If you have the facts on your side, argue the facts. If you have neither, pound the table. This is pounding the table. There’s a kind of intellectual poverty now. Liberalism hasn’t had a new idea since the 1960s, except Obamacare, and the country doesn’t like it.
“Foreign policy is a shambles from Russia to Iran to Syria to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. And, the recovery is unprecedentedly bad. So, what do you do? You say anyone who criticizes us is a racist. It’s become a joke among young people.You go to a campus where this kind of political correctness reigns and some young person says, ‘It looks like it’s going to rain.’ And, the person next to him looks and says, ‘You’re a racist.’ It’s so inappropriate. The constant invocation of this that it is becoming a national mirth.
