Dirty, sexy money

For the second day in a row, reporter Claire Shipman touted the story of an RNC staffer who submitted expense accounts after taking a donor to a strip club in Hollywood. Shipman’s piece featured a clip of CNN anchor John Roberts gloating, “It’s a story of dirty, sexy money” and of fellow cable host Rick Sanchez imploring, “Someone need to tell me how to spend $2000 at a topless club.”

Other journalist snippets included Chris Matthews chiding, “The latest embarrassment for the RNC during the reign of Michael Steele.” On Monday, after Shipman detailed expenses Steele reported including limo usage and private jet travel, she opined, “It’s the sort of spending controversy that sounds so, well, pre-recession.”



You have got to be kidding me.  “Dirty, sexy money.”  Isn’t it comforting to know that these “journalists” are so cncerned about republican money.  I do believe the money is from private donations, right?  Then what business is it of theirs?  They hate republicans.  You would think they would be happy to see republican money wasted.  But let me say this:  who would have thought the republican party would be associated with dirty sexy money?

And somehow they always mention Michael Steele’s name, when he was nowhere near the scene of this so-called bondage club.  I think it could be a racist attack on Mr. Steele.  It has to be because otherwise why would these “journalists” want to malign him in this way.

You would think they want you to believe it was Michael Steele who was at the club.  So this is a vicious racist attack on him.

And besides that, surely they don’t object to republicans using their own money to try to put a little life in this party of  no.   All they want to do is have a little fun.  🙂  🙂  Why, Meghan McCain may have even recommended it.  Loosen up, like, people.

But as far as I know, and as far as I believe, Mr. Steele is pretty much an upright guy, and I think these newscasters know he is.

Oh, wait, he did say drill, baby, drill.    🙂

I was a little upset with how much money Nancy Pelosi spent of TAXPAYER money for all her travels, food, and liquor while the country is in recession.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco) has spent or authorized spending at least $3.2 million on trips, hotels, food, high-priced liquor, and military jet rides in the past two years.

You think maybe CNN and MSNBC could focus on all the tax money being wasted daily?  Well, no, they can’t, they won’t – until the republicans take the place over soon.  Then they’ll be all over it.

“It’s not Armageddon” – Yet

In Iowa City on Thursday Obama:

Mocked opponents of the bill who said that its passage would be an “Armageddon”:

So after I signed the bill, I looked around to see if there any — (laughter) — asteroids falling or — (applause) — some cracks opening up in the Earth. (Laughter.) It turned out it was a nice day. (Laughter.) Birds were chirping. Folks were strolling down the Mall. People still have their doctors.

[…..]

What this reform does is build on the system of private health insurance that we already have. So does that mean that it’s going to solve every health care problem that we have? No. But it finally tells — oops, it looks like somebody may have fainted. That happens sometimes in the crowd. Just give him some space. If the medics can make sure to check on them, in the meantime just make sure that they’ve got some air. And if anybody has some water down there, that’d be great. They’ll be all right.

And, oops, 123 people will die today.  According to their own figures, over 179,000 people will die “from lack of insurance” in the four years before this law takes effect.  If you were able to follow the proceedings, you heard these figures cited on the House floor.

But I can almost picture him saying something like that to someone who needs medical care and who has not supported him.  “Just give him some air and a drink of water.  He’ll be all right.”

And what is going on with the swoonings?  The same thing happened in his visit to Pennsylvania on March 8th.

Someone made this comment:

“It was a heckler.
He was swarmed and hauled out yelling “Don’t You Dare,” while the clowns on the stage joked and laughed about it with each other and “The One.””

Flash back to the campaign trail.

It really does remind you of a Jim Jones type rally.  The staging and the lies have built a house of cards that will soon be coming down, just as soon as reality puffs on it a little bit.

Tea Party rally in Searchlight Nevada, hometown of Harry Reid

“State owned” Associated Press declares:  “Tea Party rally to draw angry crowds, scrutiny”

Oh, woe is me. Of course, there are no angry crowds.   Reports are at least 10,000 people showed up and the only angry crowds were the Harry Reid supporters who had gathered for donut holes somewhere nearby, and threw eggs at the Tea Party Express bus.

Harry Reid Supporters Egg Tea Party Express Buses in Route

Supporters of Senator Harry Reid have just thrown eggs at the Tea Party Express bus caravan – striking at least one of the three buses (the red Tea Party Express bus) with multiple eggs.

Harry Reid himself issued a statement and warmly “welcomed” everyone to his hometown.  Sweet Harry.

“I’m happy so many people came to see my hometown of Searchlight and spend their out-of-state money, especially in these tough economic times,” Reid said Saturday in a statement released through his Senate campaign. “This election will be decided by Nevadans, not people from other states who parachuted in for one day to have a tea party.”

He really knows how to win ’em over, doesn’t he?

Police officer said, “It’s nice and peaceful.”


Sarah Palin, keynote speaker, told the tea partiers “Now when we talk about “fighting” for our country. Let’s clear the air right now on what it is we’re talking about. We’re not inciting violence. Don’t get sucked into the lamestream media’s lies about conservative America’s standing up for freedom as inciting violence.”

The King said to them, “But if you do not worship, you shall be cast immediately into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. And who is the god who will deliver you from my hands?” And they replied, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. 18 But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up.”

HR 3590 – otherwise known as the Senate bill – now signed into law.

http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h3590/text

I’m trying to find the text of the reconciliation/amendment bill, which has also been signed into law.  Haven’t found it yet.

I believe this is the reconciliation bill:

Average Americans have been slandered and reviled

Last weekend a large group of citizens assembled in Washington, D. C. to protest the passage of a bill they did not want passed.  Last chance plea.  Well, guess what?  It passed anyway.  By the use of many tricks, underhanded deals, and other manipulations of the system, it passed.  Not surprisingly, some people are mad about it.  Maybe I should say many people are mad about it.  I am mad about it.  Frustrated and mad because we have been poked in the eye and slandered and maligned falsely.

But the last straw is this most recent trumped up media storm to discredit and, yes, slander, the tea party movement.  The democrats/media can’t seem to stop themselves, calling them racist, homophobic, and let’s see, what else – mobs, teabaggers, violent, thugs, brownshirts, blah, blah, blah, and this has been broadcasted over the public airways continuously since last summer.  Relentlessly, over and over.  And not just the media, but it has come from our esteemed elected “representatives” and even the highest officials, as the Speaker of the House (astroturf) and of the Leader of the Senate (evil-mongers).

Even the president came close with his mocking statement about “waving tea bags around.”  Notice:  These are American citizens exercising their right to peacefully assemble – not some invading foreign power.  American citizens, speaking truth to power.


It’s pretty darn funny that now suddenly those doing the mocking want to jump up and call for “civility.”  Give me a bleeping break.  It has moved clearly into the realm of the ridiculous when you hear supposedly serious questions referring to words like “battleground state,” “reload,” “targeted seats” as ramping up violence.  Do they not realize how stupid this sounds?

Now a full seven days after the vote, it continues, broadcasters speaking as if some wrongdoing was done, but nothing has been proved against anyone in this group.

A new video has emerged showing clearly the alleged spitting incident.  It shows the congressman actually as the aggressor, moving towards a man who is yelling with his hands on each side of his mouth, the congressman getting in his face and pointing at him.  And there’s a policewoman standing there observing the whole thing.  Did she arrest anyone?  No.  Did anyone shout anything other than “kill the bill?”  Remember how very carefully the president referred to the panty bomber as the “alleged” bomber.  These people are not given the benefit of “alleged.”  http://www.breitbart.tv/spit-take-video-captures-congressmans-saliva-encounter/

I wish somebody would sue.

Defamation—also called calumny, vilification, slander (for transitory statements), and libel (for written, broadcast, or otherwise published words)—is the communication of a statement that makes a claim, expressly stated or implied to be factual, that may give an individual, business, product, group, government, or nation a negative image.

Libel or slander must be:

  1. Communicated to someone else.  [as in broadcasting on national tv day and night]
  2. Harmful to the reputation of the person (or group) the statement refers to [yes, harmful and hurtful, too]
  3. Malicious [and it goes without saying that it is malicious]

“”the falsity of the accusation is to be implied till the contrary is shown.”” 2 East, R. 436

“”Malice is in general to be presumed until the contrary be proved.””

A pall over America

Remember Joe the Plumber and a time when redistribution of wealth was a foreign and shocking concept for the U.S.A.?  What an uproar it caused?  Well, not any more.   The passing of the health care bill has emboldened the undercover socialists and they no longer are trying to hide their agenda.  I never thought I would see this.  Never.  And I have to say it chills me to the bone.

And Max Baucus:

Sen. Max Baucus (D): “Too often, much of late, the last couple three years the mal-distribution of income in America is gone up way too much, the wealthy are getting way, way too wealthy, and the middle income class is left behind. Wages have not kept up with increased income of the highest income in America. This legislation will have the effect of addressing that mal-distribution of income in America.”


I wonder if he would be the first to give up his wealth.

*****

Here’e Ed Schultz, MSNBC, advocating the fairness doctrine in the most radical of terms.  Notice how he easily affirms how, if he could, he would cut off access of the airways to those he disagrees with.

*****

America is not the same country it was a little over a year ago.  And they wonder what we mean when we say we are going to take our country back?  I never thought I would feel so disenfranchised and alienated. Redistribution of wealth, cutting off freedom of speech, ridiculing anyone who objects to the agenda and policies, take over and condemnation of private industries, intimidation from the highest level of government, and on top of this, we have the government, i.e. the president humiliating Israel…..chilling.  http://gatewaypundit.firstthings.com/2010/03/obama-refuses-to-dine-with-jewish-leader/

There seems to be a smear campaign going on!! (Update) New Video

 
UPDATE2:  I just remembered something I wanted to add to this subject.  Congressman Stupak has published some very ugly messages he received After he changed his vote to yes. but when he was on tv every day saying he would vote No, he stated that his life had been a living hell.  So who do you suppose was contacting him then, harrassing him and his wife? 
 
I, for one, called his office to praise him and to thank him for standing firm with his no vote.  Maybe he could play that call on tv.  I feel stupid now for calling him, but at the time I believed him.  As I say, I was stupid.  After he changed his vote, I wouldn’t waste my money to call him.
 
Now I have lost absolutely all respect for him.  He not only betrayed his own position, but then stood up on the floor of the House and said it has ALWAYS been the democrats who have been on the side of life.  And then he comes out with these messages, completely ignoring what happened to him before he changed his vote. 
 
But anyway, I wish they would dredge up my phone call to him and play it.  Maybe it would be more representative of those of us who identify with the tea party movement.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer is warning that some of his Democratic colleagues are being threatened with violence when they go back to their districts — and he wants Republicans to stand up and condemn the threats.

So the little cowards are worried about going back home, huh?  No kidding! After they have insulted and smeared their constituents, they should be afraid to meet them face to face and try to explain what they did and how they did it.
 
When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.
~Thomas Jefferson
 

And they now want the Republicans to stand up and condemn the threats?  After they blocked them out, conspired behind closed doors, and used every gimmick known to man to pass this bill.  They should say nothing.  That is just an Alinsky tactic, “hold them to their own values” while they go about using any means necessary to achieve their goals.

Isn’t it just amazing how that works?  The democrats get everybody riled up by their sleezy ways, and they want to pass responsibility to the republicans, cast the spotlight anywhere but on themselves where it belongs.

Well, it passed.  It is now law.  The goal has been met.
I thought they were giddy about it.  But I don’t think they feel too good about how it was done.

Something is not right about this frenzy now going on.  Everything was peaceful, no problems, no nothing, until suddenly out of the blue, Saturday it was reported somebody in a crowd used the N word and the F word and all in the space of a few minutes.

 
I am not at all sure it ever happened.  First of all the people who have made these accusations are not credible.  They have engaged in the most underhanded, dishonest practices and until they are willing to go under oath or make a sworn statement, it is wrong to even report these things as truth.  Nobody saw it.  There is no video.  There is no audio.  Nothing.  Kind of like a he said he said situation. I like to have proof.

Of course, when they have to bleep the Vice President of the United States, it’s just all tee hee funny.  Gee, just ole Joe again.

All these men have made it to the highest level of government, powerful men, and so I don’t believe they have been discriminated against in any way.  They have a pretty good life and they chose to walk right down through the crowd, almost as if to taunt the people.

Don’t you think the tea partiers deserve, as United States citizens, their presumption of innocence?  Give us some proof or shut up about it.

And if they are afraid to go home to their districts, after consistently smearing their constituents, then so be it.  It does not surprise me. Pretty funny, actually. What goes around comes around.

American citizens have a right to peacefully assemble in the nation’s capitol while so-called laws are being passed inside that they don’t want.  They can wave all the flags they want to, and they can hold up their handmade signs all day long every day if they want to.

They/we have rights – but the only time you hear anything about constitutional rights out of the mouths of this administration and this congress is when it pertains to terrorists.  But when it comes to the American people, I have not heard anything about rights.

 

But I am sure there are the best of the best in police power taking care of these little you know whats (I restrain myself) and if by chance somebody has left a message on their answering machine that they are a POS, then I am sure these folks can be rounded up, dragged out of their homes, put in handcuffs and arrested, read their Miranda Rights, assigned a lawyer, and then go about proving they broke the law since they will be cloaked in the presumption of innocence, with the right to face their accuser(s).

I heard somebody mention Moses and Aaron the other day referring to someone in the democrat ranks.  Well, since Moses was mentioned, it might be good to look at that 9th commandment.  Think about that for a minute.  And tell me there is not a concerted effort being waged to lie against innocent people, lies being promoted and spread by the media.  These people are being slandered, their character being defamed, only because they are exercising their rights and expressing an opinion in opposition to the opinion of the powers that be.

Take a look at this video showing David Shuster of MSNBC going after an African American man trying to tell him he had been to hundreds of tea parties and never saw any violence or anything racist.  Outrageous.  Dishonest.  And he did not want to hear the truth.  So who is the hater?  They have managed to keep this going, all day every day, now for five days, and they just threw some more coals on the fire today.

http://www.breitbart.tv/the-big-black-lie-author-debates-msnbcs-shuster-on-tea-party-violence/

The guy is Kevin  Jackson, conservative author.  The Big Black Lie.

P. S.:  I just hope Glenn Beck and/or Sarah Palin are able to post up some of their phone messages!!!
