PARMA, Ohio – With less than an hour before President Obama’s scheduled speech, 75 seats remained empty in the recreation center at Cuyahoga Community College’s Western Campus.
So organizers went around campus and recruited more students to fill the seats. -http://www.cleveland.com/open/index.ssf/2010/09/tri-c_students_recruited_to_fi.html
Pathological Liar Obama Now Claims Father (Who Was 9) Fought In WWII. Expect MSM To Jump On This… Not.
I hope FoNews asks Gibbs about it at the new WH Presser. It would be fun to watch him try to explain this one.
It just amazes me that this fool gets away with this sort of crap. We can’t even expect the MSM to call him out on the most pathetic and transparent lies.
When the Manchurian Moonbat’s mouth is in gear, the preposterous lies just don’t stop. Here he is claiming that his father served in World War II:
The Kenyan communist Barack Obama Senior, born in 1936, was 9 years old when WWII ended.Obama lies about father serving in WWII
Maybe Barry meant his adoptive father, Lolo Soetoro. But the Indonesian Soetoro was 10 years old when WWII ended.
Some say that the reason Obama has spent a fortune to keep his birth certificate from the public is that his actual father was his childhood mentor, the communist, rapist, and potential enemy agent Frank Marshall Davis. Born in 1905, Davis was plenty old enough for WWII. But he never in a million years would have fought for this country, any more than Obama would.
We can only conclude that Comrade Obama was actually referring to his uncle, who supposedly helped liberate Auschwitz and therefore must have fought in the Soviet Red Army.
Incredibly, there are still people foolish enough to believe anything that comes out of this clown’s mouth.
“Never Let The Truth Ruin A Liberal Ideal”: NYT Blames Fox News For Sherrod Firing… Except That Fox Reported On Her AFTER She Was Fired.
Don’t worry Times. No one expects you to be truthful or accurate anymore. Just look at your sales numbers and you can see that. Don’t let the facts get in the way of your story.
The only thing that they like more than making up a story is outing a top secret program to harm our security and put our people in danger.
Final question: How did the main story here get lost? (Yeah, I know, the MSM buried it) Does anyone notice the nodding in agreement from the NAACP audience as she explains how she treated a white man with vapid racism? Are their cries of disgust or boos? No. Its general agreement. The NAACP had the audacity to accuse the Tea Party of racism when they are the obvious racists.
The New York Times on Thursday picked through the sordid saga of Shirley Sherrod, fired from her post at the U.S. Department of Agriculture after a clip of a speech to a gathering of a rural chapter of the Georgia NAACP appeared to show her hostility toward a white farmer seeking assistance.
A full version of the speech shows that was a set-up to Sherrod’s tale of racial reconciliation, though there are questions of how far her racial reconciliation really goes. That same speech reveals Sherrod accusing Republicans of being racist by opposing Obama and Obama-care, and Sherrod has gone on to accuse Fox News of using her as a "pawn" for its own reactionary, racist purposes.
Fox News didn’t run a report on the controversy until after Sherrod had resigned under White House pressure and after the NAACP had issued a press release condemning Sherrod. Yet in "For Fired Agriculture Official, Flurry of Apologies and Job Offer," reported by Sheryl Gay Stolberg, Shaila Dewan, and Brian Stelter, and written by Stolberg, the Times chose to blame a cabal of "right-wing Web sites" and Fox News for fostering the Sherrod scandal which led to her dismissal. As if Fox forced Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack to do its right-wing bidding without every actually running a single story on Sherrod until after her firing, when the point became moot.
Everyone Knows That The Gaza Strip Is Hell, Because Of Israel. So Bad That They Just Opened A Luxury Shopping Mall.
Those damn Jews! It’s so bad that they needed to add this mall to buy the crap they want. Of course, this sort of conflicts a bit with the BS that the MSM feeds everyone, doesn’t it?
While Hamas continues to complain that Gaza lacks building materials, a luxury mall in Gaza City held its grand opening over the weekend. Among the goods on sale are Israeli men’s clothing, and items from Turkey, France, and the United States.
Photojournalist Tom Gross, who publicized photos from Saturday’s event on his website, noted that the opening coincided with a visit to Gaza from European Union foreign policy director Catherine Ashton. "The BBC and other media have featured extensive reports all day long on what they term the dire economic situation in Gaza; why are they not mentioning the new shopping mall that opened there yesterday?” Gross asked.
Pictures of the new mall were featured on the Palestinian Authority Safa website and by the Associated Press.
A variety of stores sell cosmetics, clothing, office supplies, toys, shoes, appliances and more. The mall boasts air conditioning and a delivery service.
If the science of “global warming” is so completely settled, then why are these people utterly terrified of being asked any questions about it?
United Nations security officials have once again prevented a journalist from asking attendees at the climate change conference in Copenhagen questions about the growing ClimateGate scandal.
This time, the person on the receiving end of the apparently forbidden queries was Nobel Laureate Al Gore.
Much as when Ireland’s Phelim McAleer tried to ask Stanford professor Stephen Schneider questions Thursday about the controversial e-mail messages obtained from the British Climatic Research Unit last month, McAleer was similarly rebuffed by Gore and his entourage Monday.
Not only did the former Vice President completely refuse to answer questions about his blatant misrepresentations of the age of the most recent e-mail message obtained from Britain’s CRU, but a U.N. security official also disconnected McAleer’s microphone to make sure any answers would be unrecorded
Let me just say: HAHAHAHA
The London Time reports:
…In his speech, Mr Gore told the conference: “These figures are fresh. Some of the models suggest to Dr [Wieslav] Maslowski that there is a 75 per cent chance that the entire north polar ice cap, during the summer months, could be completely ice-free within five to seven years.”…
Dr. Maslowski responded:
“It’s unclear to me how this figure was arrived at,”
Obama Administration is Stalling on Giving Congress Intelligence About Fort Hood Shooter, Says Hoekstra. No, really? What a shock.
Once again, Obama covers for Islamic terrorists. I wonder if Holder will order this one to be tried in criminal courts.
(CNSNews.com) – Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-Mich.), ranking member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, says the Obama administration is stalling in providing information to the leaders of the House and Senate and the congressional intelligence committees on the multiple murders allegedly committed by a radical Muslim Army officer at Fort Hood more than a month ago.
So far, the committee chairman and congressional leaders have received no detailed, substantive briefing on the event and what is known about its perpetrator.
“You know, they’re playing out the string,” Hoekstra said Thursday. “We’re going home next week, (and) they will have effectively made it through three months with giving no substantive briefings on Fort Hood.”
Cost of Pelosi Plan: $1.8 trillion, adds over $650 billion to deficit. So much for deficit neutral. As Joe said… YOU LIE
- Covers illegal immigrants? Check
- Covers abortion? Check
- Adds hundreds of billions of dollars to the deficit? Check
- Has rationing/death panels? Check
- Makes people with pre-existing conditions wait 6 months for coverage? Check
- Costs double what Pelosi said it would? Check
As Joe Wilson said… YOU LIE!
Nancy Pelosi tried selling the notion that her version of ObamaCare would only cost $900 billion in the first ten years, later bumped to over $1 trillion when looking at gross costs. Harry Reid’s Senate version promises to come in at around the same level. However, both versions rely on three years of delay in implementing their spending plans, which allows for accrual of revenues from new taxes as well as a false sense of the real ten-year costs in the bills. The New York Post reads the CBO report and discovers that the actual ten-year cost is twice what Pelosi claimed:
Don’t buy the claim that the Sen ate health-care bill is substantially more moderate than the House measure. While Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s legislation is even more onerous than the package created by Sen. Max Baucus and now championed by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, the larger story is how similar the two Democratic bills are.
First, we need to get past the misleading accounting games. Each bill is routinely “scored” for its 10-year costs from 2010-19. Yet this includes several years when the spending wouldn’t yet have kicked in. According to the Congressional Budget Office, fully 99.9 percent of the Pelosi bill’s costs would hit from 2013 onward. Similarly, 98.3 percent of Reid’s spending would come after 2014.
If you start the tally when the bills’ spending would actually start (in 2013 for the House bill and 2014 for the Senate bill), then the bills’ real 10-year costs become clear — and are remarkably similar.
The CBO reports that, in their true first 10 years, the House bill would cost $1.8 trillion, and the Senate bill would cost $1.7 trillion. Pelosi would raise Americans’ taxes by $1.1 trillion over that period, while Reid would hike them by $1 trillion.
And the House bill would siphon about $800 billion from Medicare to spend it elsewhere, while the Senate bill would suck out about $900 billion.
What does that do to the deficit? According to the CBO, the first ten years of the Pelosi plan would add $650 billion to the deficit, while the Reid plan in the Senate would hike it by $740 billion.
Hugo Chavez bans news organization that attempts to ask questions about his policies. Sorry, I meant Obama.
Hugo Chavez would be proud–
The White House banned FOX News today from interviewing the Pay Czar along with the other four major state-run media outlets. FOX News has been a member of the five network rotation since 1997. Surprisingly, the Washington bureau chiefs of the five TV news networks stepped in an agreed to skip the interview if FOX was not included.
The administration relented… this time and allowed FOX to attend.
But remember… Barack Obama is a moderate.
HotAir added this on the disgraceful move by the White House:
Decide for yourself what the most disgraceful aspect of this is. Was it the fact that Gibbs told Jake Tapper explicitly on Monday that the White House wouldn’t try to dictate to the press pool who should and shouldn’t be included — before doing precisely that? Was it Anita Dunn going out of her way to say she respects Major Garrett as a fair reporter — before the administration decided he didn’t deserve a crack here at Feinberg? Or was it the repeated insistence by Dunn and Axelrod that of course the administration will make its officials available to Fox — before pulling the plug today?
People have been discussing this like she could really say no. Yes, Oprah used her show as a platform to elect Obama and dissed Palin in the middle of the election. Yes, this will not be a friendly venue, but that’s not the point. There are several reasons that she has to go.
- If she said no, she would be accused of being afraid to face questions
- Obama has shown is fear of Fox News. She can’t use the same excuse to avoid Oprah.
- Sarah needs to prove that she is a better person by showing up
- She needs the public exposure
- She needs to show she can answer questions in public from a hostile source.
This is a pivotal moment for her. She can really screw herself over here if she makes mistakes, but at the same time, she can come out of this with a HUGE jump in popularity and image.
I know Sarah has the ability and the morals to be a great conservative president, but she needs to convince the rest of the US. She needs to get out there and let people see who she is and how she handles herself instead of letting the liberals in the press tell everyone how horrible she is.
She has to go on Oprah and she has to do well. Good luck, Sarah.
