Trick or Treat at the Oval Office

Enjoy Your Evening.....

Ten Buck Friday - Last Call

The Ten Buck Friday bloggers, have over the last 9 weeks,  appealed to our readers to strongly consider contributing $10 to one or all of the campaigns of the Republican Senate candidates and help defeat Democrats in Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, Louisiana, New Hampshire and North Carolina.

Republicans need just six seats to oust the corrupt, senile moonbat, Harry Reid as Majority Leader.  We want Harry out of the Senate Leader's office for good, and into the
Betty Ford Clinic for treatment of his terrible mind ravaging Koch Addiction.

The recent polls look very encouraging, but it's no time to become  complacent. This election may be our first step (and possibly our last chance) on the road to taking back our government, with eyes of 2016.  
You can do more than just vote. 
"In this, our final posting before Election Day next Tuesday, our message is to ask you to volunteer by making phone calls, talking with friends, family, co-workers and neighbors encouraging them to exercise their right of franchise by casting their ballot. Low turnout leads to bad government. Make sure your vote counts to prevent a theft-proof election. Let’s make this midterm a haunting experience for Harry Reid and his messiah." - Curmudgeon - Political Clown Parade

MSNBC Talking Head: OK With Racial Fear Tactics If That's What It Takes to Win

 Loonies of MSNBC Never Fail to Deliver World Class Stupidity

Could this be the most cynical statement of the campaign season? The woman whose recent wedding President Obama attended is okay with stoking the racial fears of black Americans—if that's what it takes to drive them to the polls and secure Dem victories. Alex Wagner devoted a segment of her MSNBC show today to the naked appeals to the racial fears of black Americans that Democrats are making in campaign ads.
Wagner discussed Dem ads that seek to stoke black fear toward Republicans by invoking Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown. You might think Wagner would have condemned these ugly tactics, explicitly aimed at driving Americans apart based on their race. Think again. To the contrary, Wagner concluded the segment by saying that it shouldn't have to be the kind of threats contained in these ads that get people to vote, "but if it does, so much stronger the party is for it." - See the Video Here

Ponder This Little Bit of Information.....

Can Republicans Achieve an Historic Majority?

"WASHINGTON (AP) -- Democrats' high hopes of mitigating House losses in a rough election year have been dashed by reality.
"The question now is not whether Republicans hold the House - that's a given. Rather, it's how many seats could the GOP add to its majority on Election Day? And how close could it get to its post-World War II high of 246 in Harry S. Truman's administration?" — Donna Cassata, Associated Press

Weed Shopping With MSNBC

A Girls Guide to Scoring Reefer with Ricky Maddow 

Our favorite gender confused MSNBC personality, Rachel Maddow, traveled to Denver for a live broadcast Tuesday night. It was just a little weird to watch MSNBC's version of news with an audience applauding and cheering in the background.   The highlight (ha!) of the episode was Maddow’s visit to a dispensary of “recreational meds,” aka “weed,”  “Mary Jane,” “reefer,” or “why Phish had a career.”

She’s introduced to the world of boutique dispensary operation, from the goofy — as she goes down the steps into the store, she notes that it “smells like college” — to the mundane practical challenges of running a business that’s legal under Colorado state  law, but not under national law, which means dispensaries can’t keep their money in banks. It’s funny and informative, and Rachel closes by confirming that, in the state of Colorado, she now knows that she’s “a certified dork.”

Ricky, you've just admitted what we've always believed. You are indeed a real Dick Dork.

If you care to watch, Here is the video.

Ready for Eric Holder 2.0?

Look for one of the first duties, hopefully after the president gets through licking his wounds from mid-term election results, is to send his nomination to the hill for replacement of the corrupt out going Attorney General, Eric Holder.  Speculation is it will be Thomas Perez, the present Secretary of Labor.  Yeah, the same Labor Dept. that gave us phony job numbers before the 2012 election, and almost unbelievable fairytale numbers just in time for the 2014 mid-terms. Imagine that!

He's a perfect tool for Obama's upcoming assault on America's Immigration Laws and enforcement on the states.  Look for a swift attempt at confirmation while Democrats still hold chairmanship of committees in the Senate. 

Below is my post from March 2013 when Mr. Perez was up for conformation for the Labor Dept.  It says all that needs to be said: it need not be re-written. 

More Rot From the Inside

Keeping with his theme of rotting America from the inside, Obama plans to move another dose of leftist disease into a more powerful administration position:

Meet Thomas Perez.

Dear Leader has tapped this radical leftist lawyer Perez to be the next Secretary Of Labor.  This douche is now an assistant attorney general at the U.S. Department of Justice. Yeah, Eric Holder's D.O.J. Here's a little background on Mr. Perez:

from The American Thinker
"Perez led the Obama administration's assault on voter ID laws last year. As John Fund and Hans von Spakovsky report in Who's Counting, as a member of the Montgomery County, Md., Council in 2003 he also tried to force governments to accept fraud-prone matricula consular ID cards issued by Mexican consular offices. He was a board member of Casa de Maryland, an advocacy group for illegal aliens funded by George Soros and the recently deceased Hugo Chavez.
Under Perez, the DOJ Civil Rights Division has refused to prosecute hate crimes committed against white Americans. He was reportedly instrumental in the Justice Department's dismissal of a case involving two Philadelphia-based members of the New Black Panther Party who intimidated white voters on Election Day 2008....." 
More about the Panther case and an interesting recently released report on other race based justice cases can be read at PJ Media:
"Perez is apparently in favor of Saudi-style anti-blasphemy laws. In Saudi Arabia and other Islamic countries offenders can be condemned to death merely for insulting Islam. Amazingly, at a congressional hearing last year, Perez pointedly declined to rule out bringing such laws to the United States. At the July 27, 2012, meeting of the House Judiciary Committee's subcommittee on the Constitution, Perez refused to say whether he would uphold the religious speech protections in the First Amendment in the future. 
Perez, like so many Obama administration officials, believes that America is a seething hotbed of "Islamophobia," filled with ignorant racist rubes who irrationally fear the Muslim religion. He has worked with hardcore Islamist groups such as the terrorist-linked Islamic Society of North America and applauded Islamists for lobbying against airline security measures...." Read More  
Islamic radical friendly, advocate for illegals, doesn't believe in equal protection under the law for all races, educated in the nest of leftist worms called Harvard Law.......yeah, he should fit right in and be in a more powerful cabinet position in which to influence the rotting away from within agenda for America that is well underway.

They See Abbott Rollin’, They Be Hatin’

This is a Campaign for the Ages
The Spectacle
By the weekend, I fully expect some idiot in the Wendy Davis campaign (or at least affiliated with the campaign) will announce that Greg Abbott is not actually paralyzed, but has just been using the wheelchair as a prop since the mid-1980s to garner sympathy for his oppressive Republican positions, not merely just as a way of hypocritically punishing the disabled of Texas by supporting tort reform (even though Abbott himself didn't take any of the punitive damages he sought to limit).
After all, they have pretty much nowhere else to go. 
On Friday, at a Wendy Davis rally in Pflugerville, Texas, a charming state representative named Dawnna Dukes attached Greg Abbott for his dastardly habit of having to "roll around " everywhere.
To wit:
“And then we have this guy who kind of just rolls around thinking that he can get tort reform for himself but take it away from everybody else in the state of Texas."
It's not clear whether Wendy Davis agrees with, or even heard, Rep. Dukes's remarks, but she did make sure to thank Dukes, among her other presenters, on Twitter later that evening. After all, they're making a stellar contribution to her campaign, which she still seems to think will be successful (along with one other person Hot Air found). Even though she's running at a double-digit deficit, even among the women for whom Davis was, just a short time ago, the anointed savior.
Interestingly enough, that's a chasm that's opened only recently. Back in early October, the pink-shod proponent of partial-birth abortion was running only one point behind her male counterpart. Now, she's basically sunk. So what happened between October 1st and now to make women turn on ol' Wendy? 
It could be her last ditch effort to use Greg Abbott's disability against him, in commercials, on the campaign trail and in one extremely awkward public appearance where one of her henchman literally dragged a disabled man across the stage to get him out of the way of the next speaker.
And who says the Internet is useless?

And Now a Word From Barbara Bush

The Bush family is, apparently, anxiously awaiting the announcement so that they can get out onto the playing field and redeem the Bush legacy. Only Jeb’s mom, Barbara, is the lone voice of reason, who notes that it might be time the Bush family give up on creating a political legacy and retire to more productive pursuits, like painting, sailing or jumping out of airplanes, anything that will keep them away from America's hallowed halls of power.

Democrats' Campaign Finance Reform Irony

"If Republicans win control of both the House and Senate, 'the interests of billionaires will come before the needs of the middle class,' President Barack Obama said at a $32,500-a-plate fundraiser at the $16 million Greenwich, Connecticut, estate of a billionaire named (I'm not making this up) Rich Richman.
You can't top that remark for hypocrisy or the setting for irony. It isn't the middle class who write $32,500 checks. Those who do expect something in return. They've been getting it. ...
The top group of fundraisers for Mr. Obama raised $457,834 for his 2008 campaign -- and were approved for federal grants and loans of $11.4 billion, according to the Government Accountability Institute. Selling access to the federal treasury has been a great way for Democrats to raise campaign funds. Since 1989, according to an analysis by Gateway Pundit, big donors have provided $416 million more in direct contributions to Democrats than Republicans." - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette 

More of Your Tax Money at Work

Ohio State University used a $387,000 National Institutes of Health grant to study the benefits of Swedish massages on rabbits.
No, this is not a joke.
This absurdly stupid waste of taxpayer dollars was brought to light by Republican Sen. Tom Coburn’s most recent “Wastebook” edition, where he and his staff every year chronicle the unethical and asinine ways in which our government blows taxpayers’ hard-earned cash.
No. 2 on the list is titled “Swedish Massages for Rascally Rabbits.”
“In this I will not compromise,” notes Chicago Tribune columnist John Kass. “There is nothing more stupid in the history of wasteful federal spending than giving my money — and yours — so rabbits can get a Swedish foot massage.”
Coburn, in an interview with Kass, agrees.
“Look, I understand what the science is behind that,” Coburn said. “We all know that if you massage a muscle, you get rid of the lactic acid out of it. It’s stuff we already know.”

Man Drops Cigarette, Runs Over Own Head

AURORA, Colo. — An unidentified Colorado man suffered life-threatening injuries Sunday morning when he jumped out of his vehicle to avoid being burnt by a lit cigarette he had dropped down the front of his jacket — and was run over by his own car.  The incident occurred in Aurora at 6:37 a.m. while the man backed his vehicle out of a driveway.

As the driver jumped out after the cigarette fell, his van kept rolling backwards and he was knocked to the ground. The front driver's side tire rolled over his head.  He was transported to a local hospital and is in critical condition, though police say he will likely survive.

A relative was in the front passenger seat during the crash and he was not hurt. Alcohol is not a suspected factor in the crash, and police do not anticipate filing any charges. They remind drivers of the dangers of distractions and encourage them to limit distractions whenever possible.

Just Because Your Dead Doesn't Mean Your Vote Won't Count

Encyclopedia of All 34 of Obama’s Czars, From A to Zients

Interesting to see them all listed out like this. I also find it interesting the author thinks taking nearly a week to get on the job as “Ebola Czar” is perfectly reasonable. You know, so what’s 5 days in an emergency which threatens to grow exponentially? There’s the whole political hack process at the White House HR department. Got to get the right approvals and make sure that paperwork is filled out.

And I ask, is there no better word than “Czar.”  Seems odd in a republic. The author notes the term was first used in the Woodrow Wilson administration. That should give everyone a bit of pause.

But Thank God, the “Asian Carp Czar”is still on the job.

By the Numbers: It's Voter Fraud on a Massive Scale

Patterico's Pontifications 

"What you are about to read should be front-page news in every newspaper in the country tomorrow. You know it won't be — but I want you to treat it as that important... because it is. Jesse Richman and David Earnest write in the Washington Post:

"Could control of the Senate in 2014 be decided by illegal votes cast by non-citizens? Some argue that incidents of voting by non-citizens are so rare as to be inconsequential, with efforts to block fraud a screen for an agenda to prevent poor and minority voters from exercising the franchise, while others define such incidents as a threat to democracy itself. Both sides depend more heavily on anecdotes than data.
Our data comes from The Cooperative Congressional Election Study (CCES). Its large number of observations (32,800 in 2008 and 55,400 in 2010) provide sufficient samples of the non-immigrant sub-population, with 339 non-citizen respondents in 2008 and 489 in 2010. For the 2008 CCES, we also attempted to match respondents to voter files so that we could verify whether they actually voted.
How many non-citizens participate in U.S. elections? More than 14 percent of non-citizens in both the 2008 and 2010 samples indicated that they were registered to vote. Furthermore, some of these non-citizens voted. Our best guess, based upon extrapolations from the portion of the sample with a verified vote, is that 6.4 percent of non-citizens voted in 2008 and 2.2 percent of non-citizens voted in 2010."
This is astonishing — but Richman and Earnest fail to convey just how astonishing it is . . . because they don’t explain just how many people they are talking about.

Allow me to remedy that......"

Hillary Wades Deeper Into the Left Wing Pool of Delusion.

In June of this year, I posted about reported rumors that Obama had authorized his chief political adviser, Valerie Jarrett, to conduct a full-court press to convince Fauxcahontas Warren to throw her hat into the ring for 2016: 
Some say Barrack Obama is quietly encouraging Mass. Senator Elizabeth Warren to enter the 2016 election and challenge perennial front runner, Hillary Clinton should she run. This would have two important results. Keep women's interest focused on the democrats, and a useful idiot's defense of his leftest policy gains and legacy, thus shore up the base of low info voters that were key to defeating Clinton in the 2008 primaries.
It seems Hillary Clinton may be taking these rumors seriously, possibly explaining the friction between her and the President as of late. And recent comments bare out, at least on the surface, that she may have started her jerk to the left and warm up to the democrat base and Lo-Fo voters before her announcement to run. 

Rob Janicki has this take on her recent comments:
Hillary Clinton, echoing the radical loons of the far left, has managed to move toward that craziest of liberal loons, Elizabeth Warren, rumored to be a challenger to Hillary in the 2016 Democratic presidential campaign.  Clinton must be in fear of Warren's mounting appeal to the far left base of the Democrat Party and has decided to act now to stake out or, at least, contend for that insane far left territory of the 'delusional ones'.  
On Friday, while delivering a stump speech in Boston for Martha Coakley, the Democrat candidate for governor of Massachusetts, Hillary echoed Warren's and Obama's comments that businesses don't create jobs.  It was moronic when Obama said it and when Warren mimicked him.  Now, Hillary seems to be reinventing that crazy notion as her own.
 “Don’t let anybody tell you it’s corporations and businesses create jobs......You know that old theory, ‘trickle-down economics......That has been tried, that has failed. It has failed rather spectacularly.”
“You know, one of the things my husband says when people say ‘Well, what did you bring to Washington,’ he said, ‘Well, I brought arithmetic....." 
Well, if Bill Clinton brought arithmetic with him to the White House, it must have been the forerunner of the Common Core math curriculum, because nobody else, other than a socialist can understand Hillary's math skills as they pertain to business.
Hillary is simply mimicking Marxist propaganda in an appeal to the "working class".  Let's not forget that the "working class" does not put up any of their own money at risk when they work for wages.  They perform the work they are paid to do and then they draw their pay.  In the process, the working class plays their role in the process of creating wealth, which, in part, pays their wages, but that's not all they might receive.
Many businesses provide employee stock participation programs with matching contributory funds.  The idea being that if employees have a financial stake in the success of the business, they will be motivated to perform at a high level of productivity.  If the business becomes more profitable, then employees, become stock holders (part owners) of the business and become enriched beyond their earned wages and enjoy the profits as stakeholders in the business venture. 
Watch for more of Hillary's swing to the far left to pre-empt and dull Elizabeth Warren's march to Marxism.

The Democrat Halloween House of Horrors

Thank You IOTWR for the Linkage The Drudge Report For Ebola Sells For $200,000

Investors with close ties to a company run by a former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson, that promotes legalized marijuana have, acquired the URL for more than $200,000 the International Business Times has learned. The group plans to launch a site dedicated to news and information about the dreaded virus in about two weeks. Johnson was the Republican governor of New Mexico from 1995 to 2003.  

“It’s going to be like a Drudge Report for Ebola,” Eric Miller, CEO of Weed Growth Fund Inc. , an investment broker and former vice president of Millionaire Magazine. “It will bring all the information about Ebola together in once place.” currently features some bare-bones information about the virus.

Asked if the investment would still be worth it if the outbreak is eventually contained, Miller said, “That’s the best thing that could happen.”

Help Turn A Blue State Red

Okay, there will be only one more TB Friday after today to remind you to give a contribution to worthy fiscal conservative Senate candidates before the critical mid-term election.

Republicans need just six seats to oust the corrupt, senile moonbat, Dingy Harry Reid as Majority Leader and put the fool back in his place. Let's help move Harry out of the Senate Leader's office for good!

This week we look to the Senate seat in New Hampshire. Can you contribute just $10 to Senate candidate Scott Brown ? Real Clear Politics has Brown down by 1.6 (up 3 points from a week ago) but rates the race as a toss up. You can contribute to Scott Brown here.  

The Ten Buck Friday bloggers are also appealing to our readers to strongly consider contributing $10 to one or all of the campaign of the candidates listed below. Some races are still listed as toss-ups, but recent polls are very very encouraging, and need help to keep the ball rolling for last minute ad blitzes. You can do more than just vote. 

Their Opponents Represent The Obama Agenda

It's no time to get complacent. This is your chance to help start taking back our government, with eyes of 2016.

BOO-HOO: He's Really Sad He Wasn't Able To Disarm You Before Fleeing Office

Eric Holder, the first sitting U.S. Attorney General ever found in criminal contempt of Congress, regrets that he was unable to strip Americans of the firearms that the citizens would find most useful in defending themselves from tyrannical government officials such as himself:
If there’s one thing that Eric Holder regrets during his time as attorney general for the United States, it’s his failure to press through a Second Amendment crackdown on the heels of Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting that left 20 children and six adults dead, he said.
“I think the inability to pass reasonable gun safety laws after the Newtown massacre is something that weighs heavily on my mind,” Mr. Holder said during an interview with CNN.
He was speaking of the White House push to pass a federal background check mandate for all commercial gun sales, as well as an outright ban on so-called assault weapons and large-capacity ammunition magazines, in the wake of the December 2012 school tragedy.
Curiously, Mr. Holder had very little to say about Operation Fast and Furious, Operation Gangwalker, or any of the other alleged ATF gun-walking plots that sent tens of thousands of weapons to foreign narco-terrorists and domestic gang members in an apparent scheme to manufacture violent crime statistics to justify the gun control laws he so desperately championed.

Holder announced his plans to retire as Attorney General after watchdog organization Judicial Watch sued and won access to a list of documents related to Operation Fast &Furious (the best know of an estimated ten gun-walking operations) between the Obama White House and Department of Justice. The Administration attempted to block access to the list using Executive Privilege, but failed.

Rosie O'Donnell Ejected from World Series Game

Barred From MLB Parks

Kansas City- MFNS - Coming close on the heels of her much ballyhooed controversial return to the television talk show 'The View'  Rosie O'Donnell was ejected from the second game of the World Series last night.

Seven people were treated for minor injuries and nineteen others treated for severe nausea after Ms. O'Donnell stood up during the 7th inning stretch, turned, opened for coat and  flashed the crowd seated behind her box seat. A loud gasp, then screams came from behind the third base dugout as people enjoyed the break in action.

Bob Globben, a KC season ticket holder for the past 21 years said " in all my days I have never seen anything that hideous displayed at a ball park since Rosanne Barr grabbed her nuts after screeching the National Anthem. Shit man, there were people yelling and running in all directions....people were puking everywhere." 

Tammie Trimmer of near by Overland Park said "it was the grossest thing you can imagine. I broke out in a cold sweat and thought I was going to pass out. My little boy was screaming "is it over mommy.. make it go away!" He's traumatized and may have to seek professional help when he grows up."

Most fans were still too sick to speak to us , but Henry Tumanela of Springfleild Mo. told us "I spent two tours in Nam and saw some pretty scary stuff..but never like today when she opened up her coat. I'm still shaking and my vision has been blurred every since I looked in her direction."

A Major League spokesman said it unfortunate we have to bar Ms. O'Donnell from MLB parks, but people who come to the ballpark to enjoy America's Great Past Time don't expect to be visually assaulted and puke up their $160.00 of refreshments from our many full service concession stands conveniently located around the park for the fans convenience.

Visiting pitcher, Juan Greenberg of the San Fran Giants told us  "Hell, I was about to climb up in the stands and throw the bitch out myself for thumping peanuts at me in the Bull Pen and screaming that Madonna can throw harder then I can! That's when I heard screams from the crowd."

Homeland Security Panty Raid

With the security of America in shambles, it's good to know Homeland Security is keeping us safe from illegal underwear.

via 100% Fed Up
A lingerie shop owner in Kansas City says her store was raided by Homeland Security agents Monday morning over a few dozen pair of panties she made in honor of her hometown baseball team. Peregrine Honig, owner of Honig’s Birdies Panties shop in Crossroads, said she designed the Lucky Royals boy-shorts that were set to go on sale Tuesday.
That is until federal agents showed up at her door and demanded she surrender the illegal undergarments.
“They came in and there were two guys” Ms. Honig told the Kansas City Star. “I asked one of them what size he needed and he showed me a badge and took me outside. They told me they were from Homeland Security and we were violating copyright laws.”
The panties, printed in Kansas City by Lindquist Press, read, “Take the Crown,” with “KC” across the bottom, the newspaper reported.

WH Steps Up Presidential Security With Outside Contractor

Déjà vu All Over Again

After four years of failed policy and the disaster that was the  Obama Administration, many people were shocked when Barack Obama won re-election in 2012. There were rumors of voter fraud in precincts where more people voted than actually existed.

Then there’s this:
"Admitting his confidence in Cook County ballot integrity is shaken, State Representative Candidate Jim Moynihan (R-56), was shocked when he tried to cast a vote for himself and the voting machine cast it for his opponent instead.
“While early voting at the Schaumburg Public Library today, I tried to cast a vote for myself and instead it cast the vote for my opponent,” said Moynihan. “You could imagine my surprise as the same thing happened with a number of races when I tried to vote for a Republican and the machine registered a vote for a Democrat.”
While using a touch screen voting machine in Schaumburg, Moynihan voted for several races on the ballot, only to find that whenever he voted for a Republican candidate, the machine registered the vote for a Democrat in the same race."

The Weirdest Media Spin Yet for Obama

Don Surber
The day after a largely black audience walked out on him in Maryland, President Obama went on Al Sharpton’s MSNBC show in an effort to get black people to like him again.
 Yes folks, Obama has fallen that low.
 Sharpton asked him why he is supporting all these white folks who are running from him.
 From the president: “The bottom line is, though, these are all folks who vote with me; they have supported my agenda in Congress. So this isn’t about my feelings being hurt. These are folks who are strong allies and supporters of me. I tell them -- I said, you do what you need to do to win. I will be responsible for making sure that our voters turn out.”
 Obama’s handmaidens in the press immediately cringed, with the Washington Post headlining its report: “Obama giftwraps another sound bite for Republicans.
Aaron Blake wrote:
"While Obama’s previous comment suggested the election was indeed something of a referendum on him, these comments suggest not only that, but that Democratic candidates are actually on-board with him -- something most of them have made pains to argue is not the case.
 Obama’s comments are the kind of thing Democrats might privately say to assure donors and the party base, but wouldn’t really say in public.
 At the same time, he’s really only saying something that most political observers already believe to be true -- that however much distance these Democrats are seeking from the president, they will generally be on-board with his agenda. Almost all Democrats in Congress, after all, vote with their party the vast majority of the time."
 You see, the problem is not his incompetence or the dishonesty of Democrats who say one thing but will do another -- such hypocrisy is accepted by the Washington Post when a Democrat shows two faces. No the problem is Republicans will sound bite the president.
 Oh noes!
Readers must admit this is the weirdest spin yet in 10 years of spinning for this empty suit, beginning with his over-rated speech at the 2004 DNC convention.

Panic Mode

Democrats Shuffle Their Deck of Race Cards
"Faced with a deeply unpopular President and a potential GOP wave, Democrats are digging deep to motivate their lackadaisical base. As always, the most prominent play is the race card.
In North Carolina, fans of incumbent Senator Kay Hagan are passing out disturbing fliers in African-American neighborhoods. “Kay Hagan Doesn’t WIN! Obama’s IMPEACHMENT Will Begin! Vote in 2014” says the text, which is printed over a photo of a white crowd lynching a black man."
"The local chapter of the NAACP doesn’t see a problem with the flier. President of the Fayetteville chapter, James Buxton, told the Observer, “That’s what the community feels. That if the Senate is taken over by the Republicans, and it remains the Republicans (in the majority) in the House of Representatives, they’re going to impeach him.”
County Republican Party Chairwoman Linda Devore saw things a little differently, saying, “I think it’s unfortunate to use this kind of emotion as a means to getting people out to vote. It’s bad information.”
The Fayetteville police are looking into the matter as “hate materials,” and expect federal authorities to be involved as they view the flier as an implied threat against the president.
If conservatives want to set the record straight, the GOP should reprint the lynching photo with the headline, “Remember When North Carolina Was Run by White Democrats? Vote Republican!” 

But that's not all, this from Judicial Watch:

NAACP: Create Confusion By Deliberately Misleading Voters
"According to a letter from a lawyer for the State of North Carolina to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), a speaker at a recent NAACP conference in North Carolina urged audience members to mislead the NAACP’s own members into believing they do not need to register to vote in advance, or that they do not need to vote at their assigned polling place. Why? The letter alleges: To create confusion and animosity during the upcoming mid-term elections in North Carolina, and to use the evidence of that confusion in the ongoing litigation between Eric Holder’s Justice Department and North Carolina and to show that North Carolina’s election integrity laws are discriminatory."

This is getting more and more interesting by the day......

President Pinball: Inept and Incompetent

by Robert Janicki

Pinball is a completely reactionary endeavor. The player, in order to win at some level, must rapidly react to constantly changing events on each and every pinball played, until it no longer is in play.  Unfortunately, our Pinball President doesn't have the necessary skill set to react in a timely fashion to the many changing real world circumstances, which seemingly appear everyday, whether they are on the domestic scene or across the globe in our foreign relations policy challenges.  Unfortunately for America and the world, President Pinball has not been up to meet these wide ranging challenges.

What's worse is that President Pinball's dithering reduces the options available to him.  In a rapidly changing environment, time is of the essence.  Dithering and delaying in hopes of a situation resolving itself, is simply a recipe for disaster.  It's like the hope in "Hope and Change".  Hope is not and never has been a strategy for success in anything.  America's enemies do not wait for a response from President Pinball.  They have a strategic action vision and plan before them with various operational tactical plans to immediately initiate depending upon the circumstances that present themselves.

As has been alluded to in the past, President Pinball is playing checkers while our enemies are playing chess.  It's a mismatch that can never catch up, let alone win the game of freedom vs. tyranny on the world stage.  President Pinball is playing a game that will only draw out the hostilities we see daily in Syria and Iraq, rather than resolving them while protecting millions of innocent civilians.  Essentially, President Pinball has told the world that Syria and Iraq are not the problem of the U.S., but rather the problem of the local parties on the ground in these affect areas.

This is so typical of President Pinball.  When he can't handle the heat in the kitchen, he simply declares that the kitchen is not his problem.  In a globally connected world community, this is just another marker that illuminates to the world that President Pinball is ineffective as the leader of the free world and not to be trusted as an ally.

President Pinball came into office promising to bring the world together.  The reality is that the world is now far more unstable and divided than when the president took office.  The decline in world stability and security is not just some mere happenstance.  President Pinball's feckless leadership has created a vacuum in foreign relations and our enemies have taken this opportunity to advance the dark forces under their command, including the savage barbarians of Islam, as they occupy significant portions of Syria and Iraq.

President Pinball has told our enemies what he will not do, rather than going about the business of attacking our enemies on all fronts with all means possible.  It was Teddy Roosevelt that said, "Speak softly, but carry a big stick".  President Pinball refuses to carry a big stick and sends hollow threats to our enemies.  As the U.S. and it allies conduct air strikes against ISIS, it should be noted that ISIS has constantly been evolving in its tactical response to these air strikes.  Meanwhile President Pinball has pinned his hopes on continuing to exercise a limited military air option, essentially by remote control, without benefit of having the tactical eyes in the field to provide precise guidance for military air strikes.

As a military strategist and tactician, President Pinball has all the skills of a community activist to bring to bear, which is to say, none at all.
