House votes to defund ACORN

The House voted Thursday to deny all federal funds for ACORN in a GOP-led strike against the scandal-tainted community organizing group that comes just three days after the Senate took similar action. “ACORN has violated serious federal laws, and today the House voted to ensure that taxpayer dollars would no longer be used to fund this corrupt organization,” said second-ranking House Republican Eric Cantor of Virginia. The vote, on a provision attached to a student aid bill, was 345-75, with Democrats supplying all the “no” votes. [This just had to KILL Nancy Pelosi and the rest of her cronies in the House to yank funding for the group most responsible for voter registration fraud over the last several decades which exclusively benefited the Democrat party. Look for this funding to go to some of the 200+ entities under the ACORN umbrella here real soon…ed]

Obama: Legalize illegals to get them health care

President Obama said this week that his health care plan won’t cover illegal immigrants, but argued that’s all the more reason to legalize them and ensure they eventually do get coverage. He also staked out a position that anyone in the country legally should be covered – a major break with the 1996 welfare reform bill, which limited most federal public assistance programs only to citizens and longtime immigrants.

Poles, Czechs: US missile defense shift a betrayal

Poles and Czechs voiced deep concern Friday at President Barack Obama’s decision to scrap a Bush-era missile defense shield planned for their countries. “Betrayal! The U.S. sold us to Russia and stabbed us in the back,” the Polish tabloid Fakt declared on its front page. Polish President Lech Kaczynski said he was concerned that Obama’s new strategy leaves Poland in a dangerous “gray zone” between Western Europe and the old Soviet sphere. [Correction: The U.S. didn’t sell the Poles and Czechs down the river, the marxist one world government “president” of the U.S. did…ed]

A Tackle Box Full of Race Bait

Of all the poisonous, ugly and intellectually vapid controversies ginned up in my lifetime, the current breakout of St. Vitus’ Dance over the “racist” opposition to Barack Obama may be the most egregious. Al Sharpton tells CNN’s Larry King that decent and racially sensitive Americans shouldn’t let a small minority make health care into a “racial issue.” Someone in the control room surely yelled, “Cue the laugh track!” In case you don’t get the joke, this entire “debate” over whether opposition to Obama’s health care reform is racist is totally, completely and in every way conceivable an invention of the left. [When you can’t stand on your own two feet and cogently argue your side of the argument you have to turn to name calling and the favorite in the left wingers weak ass tool box is “racism”…ed]

Arpaio subpoenas ACORN, says funds misused

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio alleged Thursday that a national community activist organization is using federal and state funds to fight his efforts to enforce immigration law. Arpaio sent subpoenas to the local chapter and national headquarters of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN, asking for a wide array of records he says will connect the organization to a racial profiling lawsuit he is challenging in federal court. [How incredibly cool is this?! These ACORN goons have been trying to give Arpiao grief for years and the man has just now spun the table around and is going after them in a big way. Outstanding news indeed…ed]

Murderer Phillip A. Paul on loose in Eastern Washington state

A man who committed murder is on the loose in Eastern Washington state after he escaped from facility staff during a trip to the Spokane County Interstate Fair. Phillip A. Paul had been under the care of an Eastern Washington hospital at the time of his escape, and it apparently took the staff two hours before they called authorities about the murderer on the loose. It happened at about 1:00 P.M. on Thursday afternoon, when Phillip Paul apparently just walked away from hospital staff. A group of hospital patients were attending the fair on an annual field trip when he escaped, raising far too many questions about why criminals such as this one were allowed to go to the fair while under hospital care.

House backs bill to overhaul student loan program

The House voted Thursday in favor of the biggest overhaul of college aid programs since their creation in the 1960s — a bill to oust private lenders from the student loan business and put the government in charge. The vote was 253-171 in favor of a bill that fulfills nearly all of President Obama’s campaign promises for higher education: The measure ends subsidies for private lenders, boosts Pell Grants for needy students and creates a grant program to improve community colleges, among other things. “These are reforms that have been talked about for years, but they’re always blocked by special interests and their lobbyists,” Obama said Thursday during a rally at the University of Maryland. [Obama seizes control of the student loan business which means the government will control who goes to the overwhelmingly left wing indoctrination camps, I mean college and who doesn’t.

Taxpayer Funded Serve.gov Filtering Activists to ACORN

The Obama Administration has placed a large premium on what it calls “national service.” It has launched a website, www.Serve.gov, that is reported to act as a clearing house for Americans eager to “give back” to their communities. Unfortunately, Americans looking for an opportunity to volunteer may get something they weren’t expecting. By typing “ACORN” into the search field entitled “What interests you” at Serve.gov, you’re transported to allforgood.org where you can choose from a list of volunteer opportunities, including “healthcare activist.” This particular “volunteer” opportunity is with the Tuscon ACORN office: [Real simple math, Obama=ACORN–ACORN=Obama. I wonder how long before the White House scrubs their site of this info?..ed]

Conservatives use liberal playbook

Conservatives are coming for the Democrats on their blind side — the left. The evidence is everywhere. At tea parties and town halls, conservative demonstrators oppose health care reform with signs bearing the abortion-rights slogan “Keep your laws off my body” or the line “Obama lies, Grandma dies” — an echo of the “Bush lied, they died” T-shirts worn to protest the Iraq war. Conservative activists are yelling “Nazi!” and “Big Brother!” where they used to shout “Nanny state!” and “Big Government!” [Payback is a bitch eh?…ed]

Jerky Jimmy’s junk: Carter’s cries of racism are both wrong and destructive

Failed President and presumptuous fool that he is, Jimmy Carter has looked into the heart of America and discovered racism among those who most strenuously oppose the nation’s first black occupant of the White House. Carter’s diagnosis of prejudice in the anti-Obama fevers was both an insult to the public and a damaging blow to rational debate over the hugely contentious agenda that the President is seeking to advance. Only a man with Carter’s talent for confusing self-righteousness with wisdom would say the following: “I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man, that he’s African-American.” [Carter just can’t get over the fact this country didn’t want his sorry ass back for a second term.

Global warming propaganda infiltrates schools

Scientists see no temperature increase (on average) in the oceans or on the surface of the Earth over the last decade. That hasn’t stopped an activist group from infiltrating high schools with the panicky message that we are on the verge of a “planetary emergency” due to global warming. These alarmists are the recently formed Alliance for Climate Education, an Oakland, Calif., nonprofit created by wealthy wind energy entrepreneur Michael Haas. The organization has targeted five metropolitan areas and now is opening a Washington office. Haas, who donated $24,600 to President Obama’s campaign and victory funds last year, stands to reap millions of dollars in government subsidies that climate change-driven energy policies would bring. [Can’t have any religion in school but it’s OK with the liberals running our schools if this climate change crap is shoved down the throats of our kids. Parents BEWARE! Pay attention and make your voices heard in YOUR school districts!…ed]

Obama the Great Divider

In one of life’s delicious ironies, the President, who campaigned as the Great Uniter, is worsening the split between the right and left and losing support in the process. Ordinary Americans, typically apolitical, are choosing sides — and more are choosing the side of freedom every day. Lovers of liberty should rejoice. Division gets a bum rap. Imagine for a minute if Mr. Obama were able to unite Americans behind his radical agenda. We wouldn’t just have bank bailouts and auto industry takeovers and a pork-laden stimulus, but, in short order, we’d have Cap and Trade and healthcare reform, Obama-style. We’d have Card Check and a new Fairness Doctrine. [A little over three years before we can dump this Obama clown but in the meantime we have to continue to forcefully pushback against the left wing agenda and turn out to vote in 2010…ed]

ACORN’s Illegal Alien Home Loan Racket

There’s one thing more shocking than the illegal alien smuggling advice that an ACORN official in San Diego gave undercover journalists James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles. It’s the illegal alien home loan racket that ACORN has already been operating with the full knowledge of the U.S. government. (SNIP) GOP California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger now wants an investigation. But neither the Terminator nor any other California public official raised a peep when the very same San Diego ACORN office publicly announced a partnership with Citibank to secure home loans for illegal aliens. [Now that ACORN has been unequivocally exposed for the criminal organization that it is maybe these banks won’t be so afraid of the thug gang anymore and will start doing business they way they should…ed]

Haley Barbour: It’s about policy, not race

Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour said in an interview that rising opposition to President Obama’s free-spending policies has nothing to do with race, and dismissed rosy federal predictions that the recession is over as nothing more than “political happy talk.” “All through my political career, when the Democrats are losing the argument, they try to make the issue race. The issue’s left and right, it’s not black and white,” the Republican governor said in an interview with editors and reporters Thursday at The Washington Times. “This administration and this Congress have attempted the biggest lurch to the left of any administration in American history.” [Barbour nails it but then again these left wing asshats really do know the truth but the worn out and tired race card is all these mentally vacuous morons have left…ed]

Lost: 600,000 Jobs

As if Big Labor hasn’t been repaid enough for its help in electing Democrats, a new report shows that protectionism — the unions’ signature issue — costs 585,000 of the rest of us our jobs. It’s not enough that unions got the cream of the $80 billion in auto industry bailouts or the center cut of the $787 billion stimulus package or a smorgasbord of regulations — from union transparency laws to court-ordered supervision — rescinded by grateful Democrats in Congress and the White House. But the biggest payoff has been in the form of protectionist measures being applied across the U.S. economy. They include “Buy American” provisos, a Mexican truck shutout, tariffs on Chinese tires and, worst of all, the halting of free trade treaties with Colombia, Korea and Panama. Up next: tariffs on steel pipe. [3,000,000,000+ jobs in the nine months since Obama was handed the keys to our White House…ed]

New Government Policy Imposes Strict Standards on Garage Sales Nationwide

Americans who slap $1 pricetags on their used possessions at garage sales or bazaar events risk being slapped with fines of up to $15 million, thanks to a new government campaign. The “Resale Round-up,” launched by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, enforces new limits on lead in children’s products and makes it illegal to sell any items that don’t meet those limits or have been recalled for any other reason. The strict standards were set in the 2008 Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act after a series of high-profile recalls of Chinese-made toys. The standards were originally interpreted to apply only to new products, but now the CPSC says they apply to used items as well.

Sunstein: Obama, not courts, should interpret law

The interpretation of federal law should be made not by judges but by the beliefs and commitments of the U.S. president and those around him, according to President Obama’s newly confirmed regulatory czar, Cass Sunstein. “There is no reason to believe that in the face of statutory ambiguity, the meaning of federal law should be settled by the inclinations and predispositions of federal judges. The outcome should instead depend on the commitments and beliefs of the President and those who operate under him,” argued Sunstein. This statement was the central thesis of Sunstein’s 2006 Yale Law School paper, “Beyond Marbury: The Executive’s Power to Say What the Law Is.” The paper, in which he argues the president and his advisers should be the ones to interpret federal laws, was obtained and reviewed by WND.

Teen at center of rights suit

A popular national chain of clothing stores is being sued by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission for allegedly not hiring a Muslim Tulsa teenager because she wears a hijab, a religiously mandated head scarf. The EEOC filed the lawsuit Wednesday against Abercrombie & Fitch in U.S. District Court in Tulsa, citing the Civil Rights Act of 1964, modified in 1991, as the basis for the action. The suit says that Samantha Elauf, 17, applied in June 2008 for a sales job at the Abercrombie Kids store in Woodland Hills Mall. A district manager allegedly told her that the hijab, which Elauf wears in observance of her religious beliefs, did not fit the store’s image. “Defendant refused to hire Ms. Elauf because she wears a hijab, claiming that the wearing of headgear was prohibited by its Look Policy, and, further, failed to accommodate her religious beliefs by making an exception to the Look Policy,” the lawsuit states.

Sebelius: Federal Government Won’t Make Decisions on Vaccination, School Closures

The Health and Human Services Department will bypass states and send doses of H1N1 vaccine directly to traditional and “non-traditional” vaccination sites, perhaps including schools, but decisions on vaccinations and school closures are still up to parents and local officials. HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius testified before the House Energy and Commerce Committee Tuesday that school closure is “always a local decision.” She told CNSNews.com that parents would have “every opportunity” to opt out of vaccination.

Quote of the day.

I expect that after this correct and brave decision, others will follow, including the complete removal of all restrictions on the transfer of high technology to Russia and activity to widen the membership of the World Trade Organisation to (include) Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus.
