ACORN plot found, Oklahoma GOP says

A Republican state legislator released documents Tuesday which he says show the community-organizing group ACORN focused on helping Democrats in three legislative races in the November 2008 election and had developed a game plan to “take power” in Oklahoma within five years. The documents, which include legislative district maps and various forms, were recovered from computers abandoned by ACORN workers in Oklahoma City, said Rep. Mike Reynolds, R-Oklahoma City. Also found was a script apparently used in Houston to go door-to-door to encourage voters to vote for Barack Obama in November 2008. “They say they’re not political, but one of the subdirectories was called political action plans,” Reynolds said. “It was their political plans to take over key targeted races in Oklahoma City to show how powerful they are.” [It’s time for the GOP to go after these ACORN bastards with a vengeance.

Sympathy for the Devil

How concerned should we be about Obama? Is he a potential dictator with a weird cult following who could destroy this country? To put it more bluntly, does Obama have the potential for inflicting evil on us? Or, if he’s a puppet, are the ones holding the strings malevolent? These may be the most crucial and urgent questions of our times. Is Obamaphobia a legitimate reaction to an angry president with a vendetta, surrounded by psycho czars? Or is the imagination running amok? [Gotta read this one all the way through. Robin from Berkeley has a very interesting take on “The Won”…ed]

APF & Hardin Constitution Violations

A Livingston state representative is questioning whether Hardin officials and American Police Force have violated the Montana constitution. Representative Robert Ebinger says he became aware of the situation after Cascade and Park County law enforcement officials came to him asking questions about APF. Well right now I’m confused,” said Ebinger and that confusion led the representative to ask for action Tuesday when the Law and Justice Committee met in Helena. [There is something mighty strange going on in Hardin Montana these days what with this private “American Police Force” outfit sneaking into town shrouded in all kinds of secrecy…ed]

APF’s Newest Employee

The California-based security company planning to take over the Hardin jail promises to hire dozens of local employees. Last week they made their first local hire when they signed former Billings Gazette reporter Becky Shay as their director of public relations. Shay still needs a map to get around the 114,000 square foot facility. With 20 years of reporting under her belt, Shay said she’s more comfortable with a pen in her hand and topping her to-do list is purchasing new reporter’s notebooks. [More APF and Hardin Montana…ed]

Calif. jail entrepreneur has checkered past

Michael Hilton showed up in Hardin, Mont., last week, presenting himself as an economic savior, the man who would take over the town’s $27 million jail — empty since it was built as a development project in 2007 — and provide 200 new jobs in the process. He wore a military style uniform, and as a gesture to local law enforcement offered up the use of three Mercedes SUVs. But the man who styles himself as a military veteran turned private sector entrepreneur and a California defense contractor with extensive government contracts also has another image, and that one is provided by public documents and interviews with associates and legal adversaries.

Video shows terror suspect Najibullah Zazi trying to rent U-Haul trucks

Video footage shows terror suspect Najibullah Zazi and several cohorts trying to rent trucks in Colorado the week before the 9/11 anniversary, it was reported Wednesday. The men were captured on security videotapes asking about the trucks in a Colorado U-Haul International office, according to KUSA-TV Denver. U-Haul International spokeswoman Joanne Fried told the local station that FBI agents seized security videotapes of Zazi who was with two or three other men inside the rental location in suburban Aurora.

Palin co-author: Evangelical, partisan

Sarah Palin’s most consequential choice since leaving the Alaska governor’s mansion may be her co-author – a staunch conservative, devoted evangelical Christian, and intensely partisan Republican from far, far outside the Beltway. Lynn Vincent spent the summer working with Palin on a closely-guarded 400 page memoir, “Going Rogue: An American Life.” The book is due out from HarperCollins Nov. 17 – but it shot to the top of the Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble bestseller lists Wednesday as word of its publication spread.

Roman Polanski: backlash as Whoopi Goldberg says director didn’t commit ‘rape-rape’

Goldberg, star of The Color Purple and Sister Act, said: “I know it wasn’t rape-rape. I think it was something else, but I don’t believe it was rape-rape. “He pled guilty to having sex with a minor and he went to jail, and when they let him out he said ‘You know what, this guy’s going to give me 100 years in jail. I’m not staying’. And that’s why he left.” Polanski was arrested in Zurich, Switzerland on Sunday and faces extradition to the United States. He fled the US in 1978 before being sentenced for the crime and has been pursued around the globe by prosecutors ever since. His victim, Samantha Gailey, told a grand jury that the director had plied her with champagne and drugs and taken nude pictures of her in a hot tub during a fashion shoot. Polanski then had sexual intercourse with her despite her resistance and requests to be taken home, she said.

Good night, Dan

Five appellate judges unanimously tossed former CBS News anchor Dan Rather’s $70 million lawsuit against his former network. We’re not surprised. It all dates back to that infamous 2004 smear of George W. Bush — timed to hurt the 43rd president’s re-election bid — that was almost immediately undone by bloggers, who discovered that it relied on clearly forged documents. The story, built on years of research by Rather’s producer, charged that Bush had weaseled out of his Vietnam-era Texas Air National Guard service and then lied about it.

Senators turn back ID requirement for immigrant healthcare

Senate Finance Committee Democrats rejected a proposed a requirement that immigrants prove their identity with photo identification when signing up for federal healthcare programs. Finance Committee ranking member Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said that current law and the healthcare bill under consideration are too lax and leave the door open to illegal immigrants defrauding the government using false or stolen identities to obtain benefits. Grassley’s amendment was beaten back 10-13 on a party-line vote. [I’m pretty sure Congressman Joe Wilson should get an apology call from the liar-in-chief out on this healthcare for illegal aliens garbage because clearly the Democrats are doing everything they can to ensure those in our country illegally do in fact have access to our healthcare system just like we all knew they would…ed]

Panther injustice continues

The U.S. Civil Rights Commission is not backing off its showdown with the Justice Department about mishandling the voter-intimidation case involving agents of the New Black Panther Party. Nor should it. (SNIP) The Black Panthers in question were videotaped standing in front of a polling place, nightstick in hand, in paramilitary garb, and were quoted multiple times using racial epithets and threatening language. The Panthers are deadly serious. At electionjournal.org, there is a National Geographic video clip of these same Black Panthers saying, “You want freedom, you’re gonna have to kill some crackers. You’re gonna have to kill some of they [sic] babies.” [I keep waiting to hear Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton or Barack Obama come out and denounce the actions of these black panther thugs but alas nary a word has been heard.

Jobless rates rise in all U.S. cities in August

Unemployment rates rose in all cities across the United States in August from a year earlier, with 16 recording jobless rates of 15 percent or higher, according to the Labor Department. At the same time, only 11 metropolitan areas said they had gained jobs in August, while 356 had lost positions. For the eighth consecutive month, all 372 cities that the department surveys had year-on-year increases in jobless rates. The largest rise was in Detroit, where the rate rose by 7.9 percentage points, followed by its Michigan neighbor Muskegon, where it increased 7 percentage points. Detroit also has the highest unemployment rate in the country at 17 percent. [Nothing to see here folks.

TSA to expand use of body scanners

The Transportation Security Administration plans to install 150 security machines at airport checkpoints that enable screeners to see under passengers’ clothes. The installation will vastly expand the use of the controversial body scanners, which can reveal hidden bombs and knives. But the devices have been labeled as intrusive by some lawmakers. The House of Representatives in June overwhelmingly passed a measure that would restrict their use by the TSA to passengers flagged by other types of screening, such as metal detectors. The measure is pending in the Senate.

Obama’s ‘Safe Schools’ Czar Admits He Poorly Handled Underage Sex Case

President Obama’s “safe schools czar,” under fire from critics who say he’s unfit for his job, acknowledged Wednesday that he “should have handled [the] situation differently” years ago when he was a schoolteacher and didn’t report that a 15-year-old boy told him that he was having sex with an older man. Kevin Jennings, the founder of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network, was teaching high school in Concord, Mass., in 1988 when the boy, a sophomore, confessed an involvement with a man he had met in a bus station bathroom in Boston. Jennings has written that he told the boy, “I hope you knew to use a condom.” [310 million people in this country and Øbama scraped the sludge off the very bottom of the barrel to surround himself with the sleaziest hairballs amongst us.

Obama’s deputy national security adviser resigns

President Barack Obama’s deputy national security adviser has called it quits. The White House says Mark Lippert is leaving the administration to return to active duty in the U.S. Navy. Obama said in a statement Thursday that he was not surprised when Lippert broke the news because he is “passionate about the Navy.” [Looks like this guy is bailing out before anybody can dig up any of the inevitable crap in his background…ed]

Michelle Obama: It’s a ‘sacrifice’ to travel to Europe to pitch for the Olympics. But I’m doing it for the kids.

In her speech in Copenhagen today, First Lady Michelle Obama said her trip to Denmark, along with the travel of her “dear friend” and “chit-chat buddy” Oprah Winfrey, as well as tomorrow’s visit by President Obama, is a “sacrifice” on behalf of the children of Chicago and the United States. “As much of a sacrifice as people say this is for me or Oprah or the president to come for these few days,” the first lady told a crowd of people involved in the Chicago project, “so many of you in this room have been working for years to bring this bid home.” [Is this a piece from the onion.com or what?

President Obama Signs Executive Order Banning Federal Employees from Texting While Driving

ABC News has learned that President Obama signed an executive order last night banning federal employees from text-messaging while on government business, driving government vehicles or using government equipment. The executive order also directs executive departments and agencies to encourage contractors and contractor employees to adopt and enforce policies to ban texting while driving on official government business.

Jimmy Carter walks back racism charge

Former President Jimmy Carter insisted Thursday that he did not say protests against President Barack Obama were driven by racism. Carter touched off a firestorm three weeks ago when he said Rep. Joe Wilson’s (R-S.C.) “You Lie!” outburst was “based on racism” and that there “is an inherent feeling among many in this country that an African-American should not be president.” When asked about the comments Thursday during an interview on CNN however, Carter backed off the characterizations of his earlier remarks.

Smokers, Overweight People to Face Fine Under Health Bill

The Senate Finance Committee approved an amendment to the healthcare bill Wednesday that would allow employers to charge workers with unhealthy lifestyles more for their insurance coverage. The amendment would permits employers to adjust premiums as much as 50 percent according to the level of workers’ health habits, up from 20 percent now. “Weight gain and unhealthy lifestyles that focus on smoking and lack of exercise have skyrocketed our healthcare costs,” Sen. John Ensign, R-Nev., said in a statement cited by Politico news service. [Time to go hit the gym all you lard asses out there. You’re costing the rest of us a bundle!!…ed]

Quote of the day.

Well, capitalism did nothing for me, starting with my first film. You know, I had to pretty much beg, borrow and steal. The system is not set up to help somebody from the working class make a movie like this and get the truth out there.

-Michael Moore. Here’s a guy who has made millions off his slanted biased full of falsehoods “documentaries,” and amassed quite the waistline while doing so, yet he says our soon to be extinct quasi capitalistic system has done nothing for him. What a tool.
