Obama Critic Gives MoveOn the Finger — Doesn’t Get It Back

Well, William Rice didn’t actually give MoveOn the finger — his pinky was forcibly removed by an Obamacare supporter’s teeth. Rice, a 65-year-old real-estate appraiser from Newbury Park, Calif., expected some heated arguments when he went to a health care protest in Thousand Oaks. He did not expect to leave without his finger. Rice was part of a small group of counter-protesters who showed up to a MoveOn-sponsored “We Can’t Afford to Wait” vigil. The two groups were on opposite sides of the street. At one point, a man from the MoveOn side of the street crossed over to confront Obama critics. Rice got in an altercation with the man, who bit off his pinky finger in the scuffle, down to the second knuckle, Rice said. [The Democrat politicians and the left wing media sure have done a great job dividing this country’s citizens haven’t they. I guess it’s easier to take over America when you have half the people ready to kill the other half at any given moment…ed]

School Districts in Six States to Refrain from Showing Presidential Address Next Week

White House officials seemed to be caught flat-footed by the response to what they say was a simple back to school address by President Obama to students across the nation — and has turned into a firestorm. The White House now admits that one of the lessons plans surrounding the speech was written clumsily, subjecting it to misinterpretation, and had to be re-written. Some parents are talking about keeping their kids from school on Tuesday to avoid the president’s remarks.

Why Parents Don’t Trust the Educator-in-Chief and His Comrades

They think we’re crazy. “They” are the sneering defenders of Barack Obama who can’t fathom the backlash against the president’s nationwide speech to schoolchildren next Tuesday. “We” are parents with eyes wide open to the potential for politicized abuse in America’s classrooms. Ask moms and dads in Farmington, Utah, who discovered this week that their children sat through a Hollywood propaganda video promoting the cult of Obama. In the clip, a parade of entertainers vow to flush their toilets less, buy hybrid vehicles, end poverty and world hunger, and commit to “service” for “change.” Actress Demi Moore leads the glitterati in a collective promise “to be a servant to our president.” Musician Anthony Kiedis pledges “to be of service to Barack Obama.” [Here’s that idiotic video…ed]

U.S. unemployment rate jumps to 26-year high of 9.7%

U.S. payrolls have dropped by 6.9 million to a total of 131.2 million since the recession began in December 2007, the government data showed. Unemployment has increased by 7.4 million during the recession to stand at 14.9 million. The 216,000 decline in payrolls was close to market expectations of a 233,000 drop, but the unemployment rate rose higher than the 9.5% level expected. The unemployment rate was 9.4% in July. See Economic Calendar. It was the smallest decline in payrolls since August 2008. [The smallest decline in payrolls since 8/08? Well no freakin’ DUH! We’re just about OUT of jobs to eliminate thanks to this gang of anti American hairballs who have infested our federal government and our White House…ed]

‘Green Jobs’ Adviser’s Past Could Stir Trouble for White House at Critical Time

President Obama’s “green jobs” adviser could become a mounting liability for the Obama administration, as the latest revelation about Van Jones shows his apparent belief that the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks may have been an inside job. Jones joined the “9/11 truther” movement by signing a statement in 2004 calling for then-New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer and others to launch an investigation into evidence that suggests “people within the current administration may indeed have deliberately allowed 9/11 to happen, perhaps as a pretext for war.” [Racist, communist asshats like this Van Jones jerk are precisely why these three dozen czars Obama has brought into his administration without Congressional vetting are so troubling. Then again nobody vetted Obama either now did they…ed]

Leaked e-mail shows how GE puts the government to work for GE

“The intersection between GE’s interests and government action is clearer than ever,” General Electric Vice Chairman John G. Rice wrote in an Aug. 19 e-mail to colleagues. Rice was calling on his co-workers to join the General Electric Political Action Committee. “GEPAC is an important tool that enables GE employees to collectively help support candidates who share the values and goals of GE.” The full letter suggests that “share the values and goals of GE” really means “support policies that profit the company.” [Obama’s Enron coming right up!…ed]

John Murtha’s Airport for No One

If you hate the hubbub of crowded airports, you might want to consider flying out of Johnstown, Pa. The airport sees an average of fewer than 30 people per day, there is never a wait for security, you can park for free right outside the gate, and you are almost guaranteed a row to yourself on any flight. You might wonder how the region ever had the air traffic demand to justify such a facility. It didn’t. But it is located in the district of one of Congress’s most unapologetic earmarkers: Democrat John Murtha. (SNIP) The airport has an $8.5 million, taxpayer-funded radar system that has never been used.

No Compromise, No Retreat, No Surrender

The key to stopping Obama’s far-left agenda is to understand where his heart is. If politicians let their guard down and compromise, the Obama steamroller will regain its momentum and forge ahead to gobble up our individual liberties. Obama’s heart is and always has been on the farthest reaches of the left wing of politics. His driving ambition is to force fundamental change on America. That should go without saying, but it must be repeated — and repeated — lest people’s forgiving spirits and short memories generate just enough complacency to allow Obama to get back on track.

FACT CHECK: Biden ignores problems with stimulus

Vice President Joe Biden proclaimed success beyond expectations Thursday for the $787 billion economic stimulus, but his glowing assessment overlooks many of the program’s problems, including delays in releasing money, questionable spending priorities and project picks that are under investigation. In a speech aimed squarely at Republican criticism and public skepticism over the costly program’s effectiveness, Biden said accomplishments over the past 100 days provide proof of promises kept when he and President Barack Obama began rolling out the plan earlier this year. “The Recovery Act is doing more, faster and more efficiently and more effectively than most people expected,” he said. [I can only surmise that Biden is trotted out once in awhile to try and make Obama look like some kind of genius. Then again Biden could make Pelosi look somewhat intelligent by comparison..ed]

Patient safety at risk after number of medication errors doubles in two years

Patient safety is being put at risk because of medication errors which have more than doubled in two years, a report has shown. More than 86,000 mistakes including drugs being given to the wrong person or the wrong dose being administered were recorded in a year. But the safety watchdog said it believed fewer than 10 per cent of errors were being reported by the NHS, meaning the true figure was probably close to one million.

The Party’s Over for German Carmakers

It served as a model for economic stimulus and was replicated elsewhere in Europe and even in the US. On Wednesday, the funds ran out as Germany suspended its “cash for clunkers” program that had successfully buffered carmakers from the economic crisis. Experts are warning of coming bankruptcies and mass job cuts. For months, the automobile industry celebrated the subsidy, but now Germany’s cash for clunkers bonanza is over: The government fund to pay so-called “scrapping bonuses” for old cars for consumers who wanted to purchase new, environmentally friendlier vehicles has run out. On Wednesday, the last of billions in funding had finally been spent. [Anyone with half a brain could have figured out what would happen when these stupid clunker programs ended.

Muslim arrested for ‘making up BNP kidnap story’

A Muslim community leader who claimed he had been kidnapped at knifepoint after a BNP hate campaign has been arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice. Noor Ramjanally, 36, of Valley Hill, alleged in August that he was abducted by two men, bundled into a car boot, driven to Epping Forest in Essex and told to stop his religious work. The BNP had been accused of whipping up racial tensions in the area after it issued an inflammatory leaflet about Mr Ramjanally’s Islamic community group, the first in Loughton.

Barack Obama support a bit shaky in Illinois, Tribune poll finds

Though Illinoisans displayed a measure of pride when Barack Obama was elected to the presidency almost a year ago, rising unemployment and his push for a controversial health-care reform package have left fewer than six in 10 voters in his home state approving of the job he has done in the White House, a new Tribune/WGN poll found. The survey of 700 registered voters in Illinois showed 59 percent approved of the job the Democratic president has done in his nearly eight months in the Oval Office, while one-third disapproved. Eight percent had no opinion in the poll, which has an error margin of 4 percentage points. On its face, a near-60 percent job approval rating would be welcomed by just about any politician — but the poll indicated several troubling signs for Obama.

Football star tackles girl with gun on school bus

A Mississippi high school football player is being hailed as a hero for saving a school bus full of elementary and high school students from a gun-wielding girl. Surveillance camera footage on the Yazoo County school bus on Tuesday captured 18-year-old Kaleb Eulls tackling the 14-year-old girl while the children evacuated the bus. Eulls managed to wrestle the .380-caliber semi-automatic handgun from her, Yazoo County Sheriff Thomas Vaughan told CNN.

Black Caucus warns Obama on speech

The Congressional Black Caucus — alarmed by reports that President Obama may plan to ditch the public option and reduce the scale of health care reform — is pre-emptively warning the president to express his “unwavering support” for the progressive provisions in his speech next week. In a letter to Obama, CBC Chairwoman Rep. Barbara Lee writes:

“[W]e are deeply concerned about the current discussions surrounding health care reform and the possibility that current components of the bill – such as a robust public option and myriad health disparity elimination provisions – may be stricken in order to lower its cost to about $500 billion.” [Meanwhile the Congressional White Caucus is warning Obama’s Caucasian side he better not even think about any kind of government run healthcare plan or else…ed]

Men lose their minds speaking to pretty women

Obama Regulation Czar Advocated Removing People’s Organs Without Explicit Consent

Cass Sunstein, President Barack Obama’s nominee to head the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), has advocated a policy under which the government would “presume” someone has consented to having his or her organs removed for transplantation into someone else when they die unless that person has explicitly indicated that his or her organs should not be taken. Under such a policy, hospitals would harvest organs from people who never gave permission for this to be done.

Quote of the day.

Today there’s a growing consensus: The Recovery Act is, in fact, working.
