What happened to them? Here’s a blast from the past (2011) via video.
Below the graphic is a chart listing the green companies that have gone or going belly up. Why are no venture capitalists (like the evil Romney or Koch Brothers) rescuing them? Why isn’t Soros, or Gore, or any other gazillionaires on the left? Why is Congress so complacent allowing these boondoggles to go on ? What is that black helicopter doing flying over my house ?
Thank you Walter from Twitter.
A range war was brewing in Nevada, Ted Cruz was fighting terrorists, a child fighting for his life is requesting donations to help pay for medical expenses, the DC Cherry Blossom Festival is going on without a President or First Lady …. but there is
Then there is golf too. Sigh.
….so I’m reaching for my big stick too, Judge Jeanine Pirro. Yes, she’s legal and a lot smarter than you Dear Leader.
This is must watch amazing. Judge Jeanine sucked me in with her first couple of sentences then watched the rest of the 11 minutes without blinking and I don’t think I took a breath either.
Weren’t you blown away too? I think she’s been reading all our blogs and tweets and facebook pages. I sent this video to my old anti-war pals and asked why they weren’t rallying to help prevent Obama’s Folly (or as one friend put it, Operation Petulant Pussy).
Though I’m sad innocents are dying at the hands of evil (still not convinced Obama’s Snakeoil Sales Department pitching propaganda videos are proof of who’s doing the actual gassing, the floors are too clean, the skin is too pink), it’s all just too stagey and squirrelly to me. Great discussion on just that over at TCH and WHD.
Still not convinced Mr President, then here lies (pun intended) the rest of my problem, over at Forbes’ Merrill Matthews summary of why we just don’t trust you anymore.
Or a random twitter post that summed you up also “the children, the children, the children, but God Bless Planned Parenthood”.
And, can we really afford to lob billions of dollars worth of missiles into the desert and can’t even afford to re-open the White House tours to the people?
My friend Keith Koffler’s blog rounded up the Top Two Dozen Obama Phony Scandals and they are dirtier than the bottom of the Sarah Palin dumpster corporate media has been diving in since 2008. When I read Keith’s list, I retired the tinfoil, sold all my stock in Alcoa and decided to spend the rest of my political activist days just being crabby. To wit:
1. IRS targets Obama’s enemies: The IRS targeted conservative and pro-Israel groups prior to the 2012 election. Questions are being raised about why this occurred, who ordered it, whether there was any White House involvement and whether there was an initial effort to hide who knew about the targeting and when.
2. Benghazi: This is actually three scandals in one:
◾The failure of administration to protect the Benghazi mission.
◾The changes made to the talking points in order to suggest the attack was motivated by an anti-Muslim video
◾The refusal of the White House to say what President Obama did the night of the attack
3. Watching the AP: The Justice Department performed a massive cull of Associated Press reporters’ phone records as part of a leak investigation.
4. Rosengate: The Justice Department suggested that Fox News reporter James Rosen is a criminal for reporting about classified information and subsequently monitored his phones and emails.
5. Potential Holder perjury I: Attorney General Eric Holder told Congress he had never been associated with “potential prosecution” of a journalist for perjury when in fact he signed the affidavit that termed Rosen a potential criminal.
6. The ATF “Fast and Furious” scheme: Allowed weapons from the U.S. to “walk” across the border into the hands of Mexican drug dealers. The ATF lost track of hundreds of firearms, many of which were used in crimes, including the December 2010 killing of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.
7. Potential Holder Perjury II: Holder told Congress in May 2011 that he had just recently heard about the Fast and Furious gun walking scheme when there is evidence he may have known much earlier.
8. Sebelius demands payment: HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius solicited donations from companies HHS might regulate. The money would be used to help her sign up uninsured Americans for ObamaCare.
9. The Pigford scandal: An Agriculture Department effort that started as an attempt to compensate black farmers who had been discriminated against by the agency but evolved into a gravy train delivering several billion dollars in cash to thousands of additional minority and female farmers who probably didn’t face discrimination.
10. GSA gone wild: The General Services Administration in 2010 held an $823,000 training conference in Las Vegas, featuring a clown and a mind readers. Resulted in the resignation of the GSA administrator.
11. Veterans Affairs in Disney World: The agency wasted more than $6 million on two conferences in Orlando. An assistant secretary was fired.
12. Sebelius violates the Hatch Act: A U.S. special counsel determined that Sebelius violated the Hatch Act when she made “extemporaneous partisan remarks” during a speech in her official capacity last year. During the remarks, Sebelius called for the election of the Democratic candidate for governor of North Carolina.
13. Solyndra: Republicans charged the Obama administration funded and promoted its poster boy for green energy despite warning signs the company was headed for bankruptcy. The administration also allegedly pressed Solyndra to delay layoff announcements until after the 2010 midterm elections.
14. AKA Lisa Jackson: Former EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson used the name “Richard Windsor” when corresponding by email with other government officials, drawing charges she was trying to evade scrutiny.
15. The New Black Panthers: The Justice Department was accused of using a racial double standard in failing to pursue a voter intimidation case against Black Panthers who appeared to be menacing voters at a polling place in 2008 in Philadelphia.
16. Waging war all by myself: Obama may have violated the Constitution and both the letter and the spirit of the War Powers Resolution by attacking Libya without Congressional approval.
17. Biden bullies the press: Vice President Biden’s office has repeatedly interfered with coverage, including forcing a reporter to wait in a closet, making a reporter delete photos, and editing pool reports.
18. AKPD not A-OK: The administration paid millions to the former firm of then-White House adviser David Axelrod, AKPD Message and Media, to promote passage of Obamacare. Some questioned whether the firm was hired to help pay Axelrod $2 million AKPD owed him.
19. Sestak, we’ll take care of you: Former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel used Bill Clinton as an intermediary to probe whether former Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) would accept a prominent, unpaid White House advisory position in exchange for dropping out of the 2010 primary against former Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.).
20. I’ll pass my own laws: Obama has repeatedly been accused of making end runs around Congress by deciding which laws to enforce, including the decision not to deport illegal immigrants who may have been allowed to stay in the United States had Congress passed the “Dream Act.”
21. The hacking of Sharyl Attkisson’s computer: It’s not clear who hacked the CBS reporter’s computer as she investigated the Benghazi scandal, but the Obama administration and its allies had both the motive and the means to do it.
22. An American Political Prisoner: The sudden decision to arrest Nakoula Basseley Nakoula on unrelated charges after protests in the Arab world over his anti-Muslim video is an extraordinarily suspicious coincidence. “We’re going to go out and we’re going to prosecute the person that made that video,” Hillary Clinton allegedly told the father of one of the ex-SEALs killed in Banghazi.
23. Get rid of inconvenient IGs: Corporation for National and Community Service Inspector General Gerald Walpin was fired in 2009 as he fought wasteful spending and investigated a friend of Obama’s, Sacramento Mayor and former NBA player Kevin Johnson. The White House says Walpin was incompetent.
24. Influence peddling: An investigation is underway of Alejandro Mayorkas, director of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, who has been nominated by Obama for the number two post at the Department of Homeland Security. Mayorkas may have used his position to unfairly obtain U.S. visas for foreign investors in company run by Hillary Clinton’s brother, Anthony Rodman.
So, maybe wearing a crab hat isn’t as raaaaacist as wearing tinfoil ? I may be onto something, something good, I don’t know……
This is what a 43+ year marriage looks like during election season. Bad enough he’s Red Sox, I’m Yankees. He’s Patriots, I’m Jets. He’s a Marine combat veteran, I’m a peacenik.
But since 2008, and the hell that was the Democratic Party, I joined Team Husband on Team Politics. Obama must be defeated.
Maybe it was the death of Ambassador Stevens that I finally understood Obama was a dirtbag scuzzball. My husband was in charge of security for the Beirut Embassy after the Marine Barracks bombing. It was the Reagan era, maybe not the best of times, my husband was ordered to not let the troops put rounds in their chambers. He defied that order to protect his troops, Ambassador protested, Reagan pulled the troops out, the Embassy was attacked shortly thereafter. Crikesy, why my husband didn’t make General of the Worrrrld.
I love my husband, he loved me unconditionally during our political differences over the years, but I worry when he tells me Obama will win again. It’s the all about the Caliphate, the haters, the people sucking at our government titties, the lucky immigrants to latch on to those goverment titties, the lucky Democrats to latch on to my titties.
Carry on 🙂
Some of my best memories are sitting on my dad’s lap, cheering on Olga and Nadia, Carl Lewis, and others for their brilliance and perfection.
As the first comment at the video notes, Michelle was 20 when Carl Lewis first participated in the Olympics, so that dad’s lap business is easily detected bullshit.
Like so many young people, I was inspired. I found myself dreaming that maybe, just maybe, if I worked hard enough, I, too, could achieve something great.
But I never dreamed that the Olympic flame might one day light up lives in my neighborhood.
yada, yada, yada………go read the full monty at Ann’s blog
On CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday show, Jessica Yellin said she interviewed Obama for a forthcoming documentary and asked him why he did not do more outreach to Republicans in the beginning of his term to bridge the divides Obama often rails against.
Yellin said Obama told her one of the reasons he did not was because he wanted to spend more time at home with his kids and family.
“He was trying to spend some time at home with his family in the evenings and on the weekends,” Yellin said.
Yellin noted Obama suggested things may be different in the second term when his kids are older.
“If this was such a priority, why didn’t he do it?,” Yellin asked. “You can carve out one night a week to go out and socialize and reach across the aisle.”
It’s. Never. His. Fault.
