Veterans Day – 2014



On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, was declared between the Allied nations and Germany in the First World War, then known as “the Great War.” Commemorated as Armistice Day beginning the following year, November 11th became a legal federal holiday in the United States in 1938. In the aftermath of World War II and the Korean War, Armistice Day became Veterans Day, a holiday dedicated to American veterans of all wars.

Feds Buying 100,000 Pairs of Underwear & Sports Bras For Illegal Aliens

by Jim Hoft with The Gateway Pundit on Tuesday, November 11, 2014


The Obama Department of Homeland Security is purchasing 100,000 pairs of underwear and sports bras for illegal aliens.
Infowars reported:

The Department of Homeland Security, which has bee

n stripping Border Patrol agents of their rifles without replacement, is buying nearly 100,000 pairs of underwear, including sport bras, for illegals.

Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, a division of DHS, announced today it is seeking a company that can provide a wide variety of cotton briefs, panties, and sports bras in various sizes for boys, girls, and women.

“If your company can provide the product/services listed on the solicitation and comply with all of the solicitation instructions, please respond to this notice,” the announcement reads.

The sizes requested range from extra tiny to super large and the overall order is massive enough to accommodate nearly the entire population of Boulder, Colorado.

The request for boys’ underwear in particular alludes to the sudden surge of border crossings by gang members, which the Border Patrol said has increased by 100%.

ICE made a similar purchase only five months ago when the agency purchased 42,000 pairs of men’s underwear, including 6X-Large briefs for men weighing over 450 pounds.

“We have to accommodate all varieties of sizes since we encounter a global population,” ICE spokesman Carl Rusnok told the New York Post.

Report: Border Patrol Stripping Agents Of Their M4 Rifles, Will Now Have To Share Their Guns…

You just can’t make this BS up! We supply every military , fully automatic weapon and ammo to just about every ally country to the U.S., AND several terrorist countries, BUT we can’t properly arm our border agents? Are you FREAKING KIDDING ME? On the other hand Obama wouldn’t want our BORDER GUARDS shooting the DEMOCRATIC VOTING BASE now would they…..Papa Mike


(KVOA) – The News 4 Tucson Investigators have uncovered that some U.S. Border Patrol agents have lost a key part of their arsenal. And that has agents who patrol along the border here, extremely worried.

We learned that U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Offices of Border Patrol and Training and Development are inspecting the quality of agents’ M4 carbines throughout Border Patrol sectors nationwide. But agents tell us, some of those M4s have not been replaced. And, we’ve learned, agents are required to share rifles amongst each other.

“There’s a lot of agents that are pretty upset over it,” said Art del Cueto, president of the Border Patrol’s Tucson Sector union. “We know it’s a dangerous job. We know what we signed on for but we want to have as much of the equipment as we need to perform the job.”

The M4 carbine is used by the U.S. military and by Border Patrol agents. It’s even used by the Border Patrol’s tactical unit, BORTAC. Agent Brian Terry was carrying the M4 when he was shot and killed in December 2010.

Del Cueto tells us that because some of those M4s have not been replaced, agents are pooling their weapons, which makes it difficult to personalize the settings on a rifle, such as the sights.

“The problem is they are now pool guns so what happens is instead of having their individual ones they have sighted in they’re having to use a pool weapon that you don’t know who used it before you,” del Cueto said.

Miller Time Election Edition 2014….VIDEO

Dennis Miller celebrates the big setback for Hopey Change, and has a few laughs at token idiot Juan Williams, who recently proved himself to be too much of a moonbat to admit that Tuesday’s election was a Republican wave, or even to speak the name of the Washington Redskins, which has become a thought crime among liberals willing to wallow in self-parody:

NY Times Bashes GOP for Pushing Common Sense Keystone Pipeline

by Jim Hoft wit The Gateway Pundit on Sunday, November 9, 2014

The Keystone Pipeline project was expected to create tens of thousands of high paying jobs in the oil industry. The project itself would create 20,000 construction jobs. And the pipeline would bring oil from Canada and North Dakota to refineries in the United States.


The proposed project would have extended from Alberta, Canada to Illinois, transporting approximately 400,000 barrels of crude oil per day. Estimated cost is $1.7 billion.

But Obama rejected the plan in 2011 and 2014.

Democrats are beholden to the radical green movement – the poor and middle class be damned.

But now that Republicans won control of the US House and Senate – the Democrat-Media Complex is already attacking Republicans for promising to push the project forward.

Far left activist Gail Collins at The New York Times reproted:

The Keystone XL oil pipeline is so popular! Ever since the Republicans won control of the Senate, it’s become the Taylor Swift of political issues.

“We can act on the Keystone pipeline,” said the House speaker, John Boehner, as he launched into his description of the next Congress. The House, which believes strongly in the power of repetition, has already passed a bill authorizing construction of the final phase of the pipeline eight times.

Obama, Biden May Disagree On Immigration: Obama ‘Angrily Cut Biden Off’


How dare Biden even suggest talking with those evil Republicans?

Via Weekly Standard:

President Obama and Vice President Biden might not see eye-to-eye on immigration strategy. A hint of an apparent disagreement was on display during Obama’s lunch with congressional leaders on Friday at the White House.

“The meeting was tense at times, according to a senior House Republican aide. The aide was not authorized to describe the back-and-forth publicly by name and spoke only on condition of anonymity,” the Associated Press reports.

“Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid, about to lose his grip on the upper chamber, barely said a word. The aide said at one point as House Speaker John Boehner was making an argument on immigration, Obama responded that his patience was running out and Vice President Joe Biden interrupted to ask how long Republicans needed. Obama angrily cut Biden off, the aide said.”

The Wall Street Journal reported similarly on the same exchange:

Mr. Obama told the lawmakers that he had already been patient waiting for the GOP-controlled House to act since the Senate passed a sweeping bipartisan immigration bill in June 2013.

At that point, Vice President Joe Biden asked how long Republicans might need to bring up an immigration bill, according to multiple people familiar with the meeting, asking if they might be ready by mid-February or another time this spring. Mr. Obama gave him a look that ended that line of discussion, the people said.

Democratic congressional aides said the president wasn’t cutting off Mr. Biden, who was making a rhetorical point that Republicans refused to commit to bringing an immigration bill to the floor by a specific time.

Mormon Bishop Under Fire For Criticism Of Harry Reid

Someone actually calls Harry out for his hypocrisy


SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Mormon bishop in Los Angeles is under fire for his assertion that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is unworthy to enter the faith’s temples because of his support for Democratic Party positions.

Mark Peredes’ blog, titled “Good Riddance to Harry Reid, the Mormon Senate Leader,” has drawn criticism from the church and Mormon Democrats.

Peredes called Reid an “embarrassment” and expressed his belief that Democrats’ support of same-sex marriage, abortion rights and gambling runs contrary to church positions.

“Of all of yesterday’s election results, the one that made me dance a jig was the ousting of Harry Reid as Senate Majority Leader,” he wrote. “The Senate’s most powerful perch will no longer be occupied by a man who does not take his religion seriously.

Chinese Media Slams Obama Before Visit: “Obama’s Best Performance Is Empty Rhetoric”

by Jim Hoft with The Gateway Pundit on Saturday, November 8, 2014

yes we can


Life is tough. Even the commies are bashing him.
The Chinese Global Times, which has close ties to the Communist Party, ripped Obama before his scheduled trip to Asia.
The Global Times said:

“Obama always utters “Yes, we can,” which led to the high expectations people had for him. But he has done an insipid job, offering nearly nothing to his supporters. US society has grown tired of his banality…

…Obama’s best performance is empty rhetoric, while he achieved nothing on issues such as lowering the income gap. The American people have not benefited from the economic recovery.

In foreign policy, Obama must also take his share of the blame. He has managed to take US troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan, but left no peace. Osama Bin Laden was killed during his tenure, but the IS has emerged from the Middle East.

Moreover, the Ukrainian crisis has almost brought Europe back to the Cold War era, and his pivot to Asia strategy only increased mistrust between China and the US and among East Asian countries.

The Australian has more:

China’s state-run media has decried Barack Obama as a banal leader who has done an “insipid job”, days ahead of a visit by the US president.

The editorial in the Global Times, which has close ties to China’s ruling Communist Party, came as the Republicans took control of the US Senate from Obama’s Democrats.

“Obama always utters ‘Yes, we can’, which led to the high expectations people had for him,” the Global Times wrote on Wednesday, referring to Obama’s 2008 campaign-trail mantra.

“But he has done an insipid job, offering nearly nothing to his supporters.”

“US society has grown tired of his banality,” it added.

Although the US economy has improved gradually since the 2008 recession, the national mood is far from buoyant, with a CNN exit poll on Tuesday showing 54 per cent of voters disapproved of how Obama was handling his job.

The US president will be in China from November 10 to 12 for a two-day Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit, followed by a state visit.

Obama Works Out Deal With GOP…Just Kidding, Fights With Them, Goes Golfing



I wonder how much the ‘travel director’ gets paid for playing golf? Oh, and it’s Round #202…

Via Washington Examiner:

After this week’s latest Democratic shellacking at the polls, President Obama joked that he might consider “letting John Boehner beat me again at golf.”

Obama and the Ohio Republican are known for their love of the game.

But after a testy bipartisan White House luncheon Friday that quickly became a face-off over immigration, the immediate post-election opportunity for Obama to hit the links with Speaker Boehner came and went.

So It Was About Obama After All

Let the 2014 elections and everything prior to it, be your legacy and may that legacy rot and burn…….


Dear President Obama,

It’s not us; it’s you. It’s all you.

In the election in which you sought and gained ballot access while repeatedly disregarding pleas of the actual Democrat candidates- candidates who wanted nothing to do with you– and just wanted you to sit down and shut up, you got beat.

And now Democrats know how Chicago feels.

Just like you did with your “hometown,” you used the Democrats to build a legacy for yourself. And then left them to burn and rot.

How’s this for a legacy? In addition to losing Libya, Egypt (only for a time), Iraq, Afghanistan and parts of Ukraine, you now have some other failed states to put in the loss column.

You lost Illinois.

You lost Maryland.

You lost Massachusetts.

You lost Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, Montana, North Carolina, South Dakota, and West Virginia.

Those are only the statewide races you lost.

It was all the more fitting that it happened on the day on which I got the news that my insurance premiums are going up by $3,000 per year.

I know you are math challenged, so let me add it up for you.

That money that I’m paying for increased premiums will cost the average worker who needs to save for retirement $475,770.12 over a 35 year working career.

That’s a house. That’s an Ivy League education. That’s the difference between being able to afford a standard of living that includes things like food and medicine or being stuck on another crappy government program that you designed, pushed and walked away from so it could rot and burn.

I’m not the only one this happened to either.

According to the Washington Examiner 2014 saw healthcare premium increases across the board, regardless of age.

“Average premium increases ranged from a low of 22.7 percent among 63-year-old men to a high of 78.2 percent among 23-year-old men,” writes the Examiner. “Among women, the range was 35.1 percent for 30-year-olds to 44.9 percent among 23-year-olds.”

So yes, of course the election was about you.

You’re Barack H. Obama, for crying out loud. It’s ALWAYS about you.

It was about you when you raised taxes on every single working American in January of 2013 as you readied yourself for your second coronation and raised the payroll tax.

It’s been about you as you let languish on your desk the approval of the Keystone pipeline, a measure that could help Americans save $180 million dollars a day in transportation costs and help create 10 million jobs here at home.

It was about you when decided not to fix immigration while you had a Democrat majority and instead held illegal immigrants hostage, strangers in a strange land, with neither hope, nor change, permanent victims to a gutless government that’s ambivalent to them even as it exploits them.

As much as any election I can remember, including those I have studied throughout history, this election was about a man.

Dr. Ben Carson Just Made a Big Announcement About the 2016 Elections

YouTube Preview Image

You can put the speculation to rest. Dr. Ben Carson is setting foot in the 2016 presidential race.

This weekend, voters in 22 states will see a nearly 40-minute ad, entitled “A Breath of Fresh Air: A New Prescription for America,” that will serve as an introduction to the famed neurosurgeon who became a conservative rock star in the summer of 2013 after delivering the keynote speech at the National Day of Prayer.

Dr. Carson, who has never held political office, will have to make his ad compelling, seeing that he will probably be running against the likes of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, former Florida governor Jeb Bush, Sen. Rand Paul and others.

To serve as a precursor to his forthcoming ad, Dr. Carson recently switched his political affiliation from Independent to Republican.

VA Hospital Hides Jesus Behind Curtain



This is truly a wake up call for America to get back to God!!!!

This is unbelievable!!! From the Iron Mountain, MI Daily News.

I went to the VA Hospital in Iron Mountain today on business. While there I stopped at the Chapel and found pinky-purple curtains with mesh at the top, covering the altar. (You know the type. They use them between sick patients in the hospital).
I stopped in my tracks, shocked at what I saw. I peeked behind the curtain, and found what used to be the welcoming part of the chapel, the Cross, a picture of Jesus, and other Christian icons familiar to the majority of Americans.

I found Chaplain Bob Mueller, to ask what the meaning was of this change. This is what he told me.
“A couple of months ago, an order came down from Washington DC to cover all things associated with Christianity in the VA. Their solution is to cover everything in all the VA Chapels across the country.”

Chaplain Bob went on to say, “A few weeks ago an official from the Madison, WI VA came down here to tell me to ‘stop talking about Jesus, and to stop reading Scripture out loud.'”
Chaplain Bob also said that the rest of the Obama plan is to send more curtains to cover the rest of the stained glass windows, because there are Christian symbols on the stained glass.

photos reveal future plans by the White House.
To use the same phrase President Oboama so ‘eloquently’ used concerning other matters at the VA, ‘I’m mad as hell…”

As Americans, we need to pray earnestly together to stop this insanity.

WOW! Holder’s DOJ to Meet With Criminal Cop-Hater & Hamas Supporter on #Ferguson Police Reform

A vocal Ferguson protester was arrested for assaulting a police officer after he was caught on tape abusing the officer.

Click link to see VIDEO of protestors harassing Ferguson police HERE


Bassem Masri is a regular at the Ferguson protests.

Bassem Masri posted video where he verbally assaulted police in Ferguson, Missouri.
Now he’s charged with assaulting a police officer.

Local FOX 2 ran an exposé on Bassem Nasri last week.

People appear to feed off of his energy. Masri told an officer, ‘What happens when we take your gun?’ That officer then protects his gun. Another officer protecting his gun was answered with screams, ‘He has his hand on his gun!’

Then citizens surrounded him and chanted, ‘Shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot.’

At one point you can hear Masri tell officers, while pointing at each one, ‘I`m praying for your death and you death and your death and your death.’

Bassem Masri sat down with us to answer to his tactics. He said, ‘We need to be talking about how we gonna fix the police, not how do we fix Bassem.’

Reporter Hayes asked, ‘It appears at times you`re trying to get an officer to strike you.’

Masri: ‘Maybe, nah. I don`t want to get hurt. I don`t want to go to jail. Hell no and you know what it is? Like I just stated earlier, I`m a citizen who`s mad.’

On Wednesday Bassem Masri tweeted out that he was contacted by Holder’s DOJ and will meet with them to discuss police reform.

The Polls Were Wrong!

Yep! The polls were all wrong.

How wrong were they?

I’m glad you asked polling place breath. Here in Georgia they kept saying that Michelle Nunn Martin was close to David Perdue. Some polls even had her ahead by two points and that the Georgia Senate race was heading towards a runoff. It wasn’t even close. Perdue killed her, even with all of those ads about him outsourcing jobs overseas. Even having her dad and Zell Miller in her ads didn’t help. Georgia voters have wised up to Dimocrats running as conservatives because they know there are no longer any conservative Dimocrats. They’re all liberals progressives rat bastard commies and Michelle Martin wouldn’t have been any different.

The Georgia governor’s race was the same. Jason Carter was relying on his name. He had nothing to show for his time in the state senate. He was using his grandfather’s name and money contacts. Deal killed him.

For more on the polls, an actual journalist, Don Surber, put up a post about it. An excerpt.

In Alaska, Republican Dan Sullivan was up by 2.4 points. He won by 3.7.
In Arkansas, Republican Tom Cotton was up by 7 points. He won by 17.
In Colorado, Republican Cory Gardner was up by 2.5 points. He won by 4.2.
In Georgia, Republican David Perdue was up by 3. He won by 7.9.
In Iowa, Republican Joni Ernst was up by 2.3 points. She won by 8.5.
In Kansas, Republican Pat Roberts was down by 0.8 points. He WON by 10.7.

You think they may have oversampled Dimocrats? They usually do and this time they obviously did. Liberal bias? Naw. Whatever gave you that idea?

Obama Sums Up His Feelings in One Word About The Beat-Down His Party Was Just Handed By The GOP

YouTube Preview Image

Regardless of how they try to spin it, Democrats were handed a beat-down of historical proportions by the Republicans on Tuesday — based, in large part, on dissatisfaction with the policies of Barack Obama.

From the economy and jobs, to immigration, to the failure to foresee the rise of ISIS, voters spoke out loud and clear. And Democrat after Democrat fell. So what was Obama’s initial response? According to the Associated Press, he was:


One would expect the President to be upset, since voters across the country just showed that they think America is headed in the wrong direction and thoroughly rejected Obama’s policies and his party.

One word, however, that shouldn’t describe the President is “surprised.” Since he was first elected, his approval rating has plummeted:

Holder’s DOJ to Hold Training Sessions Friday on “Fair & Impartial Policing” For St. Louis Police

Holder and Obama belong in prison. There is enough evidence for Obama to be IMPEACHED and Holder be run off ASAP . Holder has proved to be a RACIST and everything he does proves he HATES WHITE PEOPLE!…..Papa Mike

The Ferguson mob has been harassing and abusing local police officers for weeks.
One proud protester recorded himself cussing out police and spitting in a “bitch” officer’s face.
You can hear the police car being attacked before it takes off.

You can hear the “protester” scream, “Suck my d*ck, you cowards!” before he spit on the officer’s face.

The mob was screaming, “F*ck you!” in the background.

The “protester” then posted the abuse online.
The title of the video:
Captured from a UStream video:

Now this…
Holder’s DOJ will hold special training sessions Thursday and Friday for area police officers on “fair and impartial policing.”
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported:
The Department of Justice announced today that it will be in the St. Louis area today and Friday to host a training session about fair and impartial policing to commanders of local departments, including Ferguson.

The effort is part of the Justice Department’s Collaborative Reform Initiative within the St. Louis County police that started after Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson shot Michael Brown in August.

President Barack Obama then asked Attorney General Eric Holder to send the agency’s Community Oriented Policing Services director, Ron Davis, to work with police officials in Ferguson.

While Obama Sends Love Letters To Khamenei, Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Send Lethal Aid To Taliban To Kill U.S. Troops…

Obama already knows this and it hasn’t stopped him from snuggling up next to Ayatollah Khamenei.

Via Free Beacon:

Iran continues to provide “calibrated lethal aide to the Taliban” in Afghanistan to help the group conduct attacks on U.S. and Western security forces operating in the country, according to a new report published by the Pentagon.

Iran’s elite military force, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), has been supplying various arms to the Taliban as part of Tehran’s mission of eradicating Western forces and preventing the United States from safely establishing permanent bases in Afghanistan, according to the Pentagon’s 2014 “Progress Toward Security and Stability in Afghanistan” report, which was published in October.

The arms are being provided by Iran as a supplement to a $1 billion aid program aimed at keeping the Afghan government firmly in Tehran’s corner, according to the report.

Details of Iran’s clandestine support for the Taliban come as the Obama administration quietly continues its efforts to enlist Iran in the fight against the Islamic State (IS).

President Barack Obama secretly wrote to the Iranian Supreme Leader in mid-October to express his willingness to partner with Tehran in the fight against IS (also known as ISIS or ISIL), the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday.

Charlie Rangel: Southern Republicans Still Believe In Slavery, Dems Lost Senate Because Of Racism…


Speaking of racists…This bastard should be run out of Washington ASAP. What gives him the right to call ANY person RACISTS…He’s no different than Sharpton or Jessie Jackson and the three of them should be held accountable for their racial slurs……..Papa Mike


Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) is doubling down on his belief that southern Republicans still believe in slavery and think the Confederates won the Civil War, implying that the Democrats’ major senatorial losses came as a result of racism.

Rangel made the initial comments last week at a rally for incumbent New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Wednesday afternoon on CNN, Wolf Blitzer asked the congressman if he would like to clarify his statement:

“I meant that they used to call themselves ‘slave-holding states.’ They’ve been frustrated with the Emancipation Proclamation. They became Republicans, then tea party people. These are the people that are trying to frustrate people from voting, changing the voting rights that we fought so hard for. And all I’m saying is, if you want to challenge the statistics, find out where the slave-holding states are, find out where the tea party is.”

Megyn Kelly: ‘This Isn’t a Pro-GOP Election, It’s an Anti-Obama Election’

Fox News host Megyn Kelly, in her first appearance on Fox News Sunday, gave a concise analysis on Tuesday’s midterm elections:

“This Isn’t A Pro-GOP Election, It’s An Anti-Obama Election.”
The host of The Kelly File ticked off several examples of why she believes voters will cast their ballots more against Obama than for Republicans:

The “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan” broken promise.
Obama’s underestimation of the growing threat of ISIS.
Blaming the Iraqis for the total withdrawal of U.S. troops vs. accepting any responsibility.
Kelly’s bottom line: “They [voters] don’t believe him anymore.”

Poll after poll has found that a majority of Americans no longer trust Obama, including one earlier this year saying more than 6 out of 10 Americans believe he lies about important issues.

If Ms. Megyn is correct, it’s going to be a very good day for Republicans.

Spotify, you’re wonderful, but I have to quit!!

Qutting-Spotify-hAbout one year ago, I decided to commit to Spotify. I silently chose to leave behind my decade’s worth of MP3s and go all in on streaming. Lugging around my 90GB of music and manually copying MP3s from one device to another had grown tiresome. It’s been a year now, and not a terrible year either. In many ways, it was a fantastic year (the world didn’t even end). But after 400 odd days of streaming an unlimited number of full albums without buying them, creating countless playlists, sending dozens of songs, and playing that music on any device I pleased (for the $10 a month premium fee), I’ve decided I need to quit.

I know what you’re thinking: You’re probably shaking your computer monitor (or iPad) violently asking why I’d possibly want to give up a service that lets you stream as much Lady Gaga, Nickelback, and Smash Mouth as you want?! I mean how can you turn down the ability to listen to Bananarama’s full catalog? These are good questions. Especially considering that I’m listening to The Mowgli’s on Spotify as I type this! But I never said I wasn’t a hypocrite. It won’t be easy and I don’t know where to go – all I know is that I need to get out.

It’s an illusion, Michael
Though its convenience is unmatched, Spotify is designed around an illusion. It’s a lie. Not a public lie, but a lie that we’re all buying into nonetheless. Spotify gives you the illusion that you have a music collection. It lets you import all of your local songs on your computer (in my case, 10,000 or so) as well as all of your iTunes and Windows playlists. Once you’ve let it suck in all of your data, it lets you create your own playlists, which are basically just lists of song names, or data. It gives you authorship over those playlists, control over those playlists, and provides you free access to nearly all of the music you might desire. Not to download, like an MP3 file, but to stream whenever and wherever you want. It sounds great, right?

Obama Calls Republicans ‘Un-American’ In Late Election Appeal to Black Voters

by Kristinn Taylor with The Gateway Pundit  on Monday, November 3, 2014

Obama calls Republicans “Un-American” in last interview before election.

Barack Obama went on the Frank Ski Show Monday a

President Barack Obama attacked Republicans as ‘un-American’ in an interview on Monday.

Obama made the incendiary remarks while speaking to Frank Ski on WHUR-FM, the radio station of Howard University in Washington, D.C.

Howard University bills itself as the “nation’s premier Historically Black College and University.”

Obama called Republicans “un-American” for efforts to ‘restrict the franchise’ of voting by calling for voter ID laws and moving to curtail early and weekend voting.

In April of this year, Obama agreed with a supporter at a Democratic Party fundraiser in Texas who yelled out the Republicans were ‘un-American’ for trying to tighten voting laws. Obama did not say the words himself, though.

“In an equally forceful rebuke to Republicans, Obama accused the GOP of seeking to restrict access to voting in Texas and elsewhere. When one donor shouted out that the GOP effort was “un-American,” the president concurred.

““How is it that we’re putting up with that?” Obama asked incredulously.”

In Monday’s interview, Obama uttered the “un-American” charge unprompted by the interviewer Frank Ski.
Obama conducted the interview to fire up the Black vote in an effort to prop up the gubernatorial candidacy of Maryland Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown who is in an unexpectedly tight race with his Republican opponent Larry Hogan. Hogan is white. Brown, like Obama, is African-American.

I Am Coming For You And You Have Nowhere To HIDE!

Sent to me by Jim, my good friend & Texas Conservative

I don’t know who put this together, but I sure would like to shake his hand, pat him on the back, and wish him, “Thank You and Good Hunting!”

Dear Terrorists,

I am a Navy Aviator. I was born and raised in a small town in New England. I come from a family of five. I was raised in a middle class home and taught my values by my mother and father.

My dad worked a series of jobs in finance and my mom took care of us kids. We were not an overly religious family but attended church most Sundays. It was a nice small Episcopal Church. I have a brother and
sister and I am the youngest in my family. I was the first in many generations to attend college.

I have flown Naval aircraft for 16 years. For me the flying was never a lifelong dream or a “calling,” it just happened. I needed a job and I liked the challenge. I continue to do it today because I feel it is important to give back to a nation which has given so much to me. I do it because, although I will never be rich, my family will be comfortable.

I do it because many of my friends have left for the airlines and someone has to do it.

My government has spent millions to train me to fly these
multi-million dollar aircraft. I make about 70,000 dollars a year and after 20 years will be offered a pension.

I like baseball but think the players make too much money. I am in awe of firemen and policemen and what they do each day for my community, and like teachers, they just don’t get paid enough.

I respect my elders and always use sir or ma’am when addressing a stranger. I’m not sure about kids these days but I think that’s normal for every generation.

I tell you all this because when I come for you, I want you to know me. I won’t be hiding behind a woman or a child. I won’t be disguised or pretending to be something I am not. I will be in a U.S. issue flight suit. I will be wearing standard US issue flight gear, and I will be flying a navy aircraft clearly marked as a US warplane. I wish we could
meet up close in a small room where I could wrap my hands around your throat and slowly squeeze the life out of you, but unfortunately, you’re hiding in a hole in the ground, so we will have to do this a different way.

I want you to know also that I am very good at what I do. I can put a 2,000 lb weapon through a window from 10,000 feet up. I generally only fly at night, so you may want to start sleeping during the day. I am not eager to die for my country but I am willing to sacrifice my life to protect it from animals like you.

I will do everything in my power to ensure no civilians are hurt as I take aim at you.

My countrymen are a forgiving bunch. Many are already forgetting what you did on Sept 11th. But I will not forget!!

I am coming. I hope you know me a little bit better, see you soon…sleep tight.
