Folk Heroes vs. Terrorists: A Progressives’ Guide


Many people may be confused about how to tell a “legitimate” protestor from a trouble maker or even a terrorist.  This handy guide to free speech for Progressives should help!  For example, the Gyrocopter pilot who violated numerous laws and endangered lives -  NOT A TERRORIST!  The million tea party “people” who marched on Congress under a permit in a lawfully organized demonstration – Terrorist!  Here’s how to tell.  The Gyrocopter pilot worked for the post office, so is a government worker – NOT a terrorists!  The tea party people want Congress to read bills before they pass them – Terrorists! The gyrocopter pilot wanted to STOP companies from spending money on political campaigns – Folk Hero!  the Tea party “protestors” want government to cut spending – TERRORISTs!  See how it works?

Stephanopoulos Floored as Gingrich, Bloomberg Editors Detail Seriousness of ‘Clinton Cash’

Me thinks there’s a there there!

The former public face of Bill Clinton’s White House—and current host of ABC News’ This Week—George Stephanopoulos was floored as two prominent journalists and the Republican Speaker of the House from his Clinton days, Newt Gingrich, laid out for him just how bad the “Clinton Cash” book is for his old bosses.

During the show’s roundtable panel after Clinton Cash author Peter Schweizer appeared on the show for a lengthy interview, Stephanopoulos teamed with Democratic strategist Donna Brazile in an attempt to discredit Schweizer. But it started with Stephanopoulos making a shocking admission: Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign wouldn’t send out any official surrogates or spokespeople to defend her on this scandal.  Read more at breitbart.com.

Judge Jeanine: Hillary is a Global-Scale Influence Peddler

From Judge Jeanine’s OpeningStatement on April 25th, 2015:

“I’m gonna shock you.  Hillary Clinton without a doubt, hands down, the absolute best CEO of a public company: ruthless, profit driven and all about the money.  But if you’re looking for a different kind of CEO one to run the greatest nation on earth and bring back America, now teetering on the brink of socialism to be president of the United States, Hillary Clinton is the worst possible choice.  She in fact is the person to walk away from.  And what makes you think she cares about you? This woman only cares about herself, money and her next step up the political ladder.  And if a president will only care about her legacy and if you don’t see that from events at this past week then you are exactly the kind tuned out voter that Hillary is hoping to turn out in droves in 2016.  So what am I talking about?  I’m talking about. influence-peddling on a global scale and the setting American foreign policy to coincide with the flow of hundreds of millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation and millions directly to Bill Clinton and ultimately Hillary in speaking fees…”

The Judge then went on to elaborate.

RINOs Confirm Loretta Lynch – Slap Constitution in the Face

On his Thursday evening radio program, following the confirmation of Loretta Lynch as Attorney General of the United States, Mark Levin names the ten Republican RINO senators who voted for her confirmation. Since she was confirmed by a 56 to 43 vote margin with only a simple majority required, the Republicans had more than enough potential votes to stop this Eric Holder clone from taking office and assisting in Obama’s fundamental transformation of the United States of America. When will the GOP Establishment stop throwing We the People under the bus?

Here  are the Republican YEA voters:
Ayotte (R-NH)
Cochran (R-MS)
Collins (R-ME)
Flake (R-AZ)
Graham (R-SC)
Hatch (R-UT)
Johnson (R-WI)
Kirk (R-IL)
McConnell (R-KY)
Portman (R-OH)

Gov. Walker Supporters Claim Police Raided Their Homes Over Politics

Megyn Kelly shared new information tonight about a series of terrifying raids which were reportedly a form of political retribution against supporters of Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI).

She explained that a few of the people who were raided came forward and spoke to the National Review about what they experienced.

Kelly reported that Cindy Archer had a raid conducted on her home when she was sound asleep one night.

Archer claims that more than a dozen police officers were yelling and pounding on her door.

She said that police would not tell her why they were there as they ransacked her home, Kelly reported.

Police officers reportedly seized Archer’s computers and phones and told her that she couldn’t tell anyone what happened.

Eric O’Keefe, a member of the Wisconsin Club for Growth, told Kelly tonight that people were “targeted based on a theory which is completely unsupportable under Wisconsin law.”

He explained that they were attacked because “the left was tired of losing election after election after election.”

If Only Terrorists Attacked Golf Course…

Speaking at the New Hampshire Republican Leadership Summit on April 18, 2015, Senator Ted Cruz blasts President Obama for repeatedly refusing to identify Islamic terrorism by name and going to any extreme to call it something else: “If only the terrorists attacked a golf course, that might get the White House’s attention!”

Madam Clinton of the People, We Do Not Deserve Her!

by Charles Hur21 Apr 2015

Madam Candidate of the People was in her magical mystery conversion van, flying over the cornfields of Iowa taking enemy fire. This required evasive maneuvers that launched her coterie of handmaidens, purse-holders, and security guards all around the plush leather cabin of the magical, age-reversing van.

Heroically, Madam Candidate of the People finally landed in war-torn Iowa and dodged down the runway, pocked with mortar-blown craters. The master sorceress of disappearing emails and reappearing Rose Law Firm records then switched her magical mystery conversion van from flying mode to driving mode.

Without regard for her own safety or self-respect, Madam Candidate of the People then embarked on a tour of the malnourished and impoverished urchins of the squalid state of Iowa.

Before arriving in Iowa, she and her handmaiden Huma, donning dark sunglasses, had gone undercover in an Ohio Chipotle, understanding that this was supposed to be very popular with The People. She ordered something called a burrito bowl, also popular among The People, especially the Mexican-oriented ones that are most highly valuable to anyone in Madam Candidate of the People’s present line of work.

Allegations Surface That Hillary Clinton Accepted Bribes

Even with all the buzz about the soon to be released book Clinton Cash, by investigative journalist Peter Schwiezer, Hillary Clinton continues to sidestep any tough questions. The book which has been touted by the New York Times and the Washington Post, purportedly alleges Hillary Clinton accepted bribes in a ‘pay to play’ scheme while she was Secretary of State. I wonder how long it will be before the Teflon wears off? Can anyone say John Gotti? Or maybe it’s all just another vast right wing conspiracy?

Worthy of Impeachment?

Last week, in an effort to rein in an out of control executive branch, Congressman Yoho introduced a resolution to define impeachable offenses. The resolution defines High Crimes and Misdemeanors and sets the benchmark for Congress to act against ANY president who ignores the constitution.

House Resolution 198  has been referred to the House Judiciary Committee for review. Let’s hope that the majority of those committee members vote positively and move it forward.

Following are two articles about the resolution and Congressman Yoho. Please click and read and again, THANK YOU Congressman Yoho.

From The New American-

House Resolution 198, provides a list of 11 specific crimes “which will cause the House to vote an article or articles of impeachment to send to the Senate for trial.” Those include “initiating war without express congressional authorization; killing American citizens in the United States or abroad who are not then engaged in active hostilities against the United States without due process (unless the killing was necessary to prevent imminent serious physical danger to third parties); failing to superintend subordinates guilty of chronic constitutional abuses; spending appropriated funds in violation of conditions imposed for expenditure; intentionally lying to Congress to obtain an authorization for war; failing to take care that the laws be faithfully executed through signing statements or systematic policies of non-enforcement; substituting executive agreements for treaties; intentionally lying under oath to a Federal judge or grand jury; misusing Federal agencies to advance a partisan political agenda; refusing to comply with a congressional subpoena for documents or testimony issued for a legitimate legislative purpose; and issuing executive orders or presidential memoranda that infringe upon or circumvent the Constitutional powers of Congress.”

From The Hill Blog-

In what is described as the single most significant action towards impeachment to date, Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla) is preparing a resolution to define “high crimes and misdemeanors”—thus establishing a standard against which Obama’s specific presidential authority abuses can then be measured.

The resolution notes as impeachable offenses “failing to take care that the laws be faithfully executed through signing statements or systematic policies of non-enforcement.” And, targeting Obama’s intention to implement an Iranian nuclear deal with or without Senate approval, it includes “substituting executive agreements for treaties.” (If for no other reason, the thought of Obama implementing a deal which, by his own admission, ultimately gives the Iranians a nuclear weapon based on the future “hope” Tehran will change by then, cries out for Senate review.)

“Clinton Cash” Most Anticipated and Feared Book

by Alexander Marlow  19 Apr 2015

The New York Times reported Sunday evening that a forthcoming investigative bombshell book on Hillary and Bill Clinton will soon be the focus of major feature stories and is regarded as “the most anticipated and feared book of a presidential cycle.”

For weeks, news outlets from the Washington Post to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer have alluded that the highly-anticipated May 5 release of Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich by three-time New York Times bestselling investigative journalist Peter Schweizer could be a presidential game-changer. Schweizer is President of the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI) and a Senior Editor-at-Large at Breitbart News.

The New York Times revealed that Clinton Cash describes how the Clintons’ income from 2001 to 2012 was at least $136.5 million, how Mr. Clinton would routinely fetch half-a-million dollar honorariums for speeches while Mrs. Clinton was Secretary of State, and much more.

Despite the Clinton campaign’s ability to dismiss “critical books as conservative propaganda,” the Times says “Clinton Cash is potentially more unsettling, both because of its focused reporting and because major news organizations are expected to pursue the story lines found in the book.”  Continue reading at breitbart.com.

 

 

Judge Jeanine Pirro: Hillary Clinton Is On The Run

Why is the most transparent woman in history on the run? What is she running from? Judge Jeanine Pirro suggests a few possible reasons. Basically listing a series of lies. “Maybe she’s traumatized from all that sniper fire in Bosnia?” “…This was the same woman folks, who said she was dead broke when she left the White House. For your information folks, the year after she left the White House, her’s [sic] and Bill’s income was sixteen million dollars,” The judge then went on to play a clip of Hillary Clinton talking about her accomplishments where Clinton said: “The most important thing I did was help restore America’s leadership around the world and I think that was a very important accomplishment.” REALLY? And as the song goes: on and on.

Jeb Bush Engages in an “Act of Love” with Harry Reid

Jeb Bush Pushes Republicans to Cave to Obama Executive Amnesty, Approve Loretta Lynch.  Why waste your time and energy, Jeb, McConnell will cave on his own anyway.

What a week! First the Senate caves and approves the infamous Doc-Fix. Great, they won’t have to worry about the SGR every two years. But some little known provisions in the bill actually gut Medicare over time, and will effectively turn Medicare into Obamacare.  I don’t know why these provisions are so “little known.” I actually read the bill and found out what was in it.  Next, the Senate caved on the Iran deal treaty and gave Obama the power to do what he damn pleases. Now good ol’ Jeb does this:

From Breitbart.com

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has joined Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid in calling for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to abandon his pre-election promise to fight President Obama’s executive amnesty by holding a vote to confirm U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch as Attorney General.

“I think that presidents have the right to pick their team,” Bush said in New Hampshire at an event with about 95 voters and “a horde of media,” according to Time Magazine’s Zeke Miller.

“The longer it takes to confirm her, the longer Eric Holder stays as Attorney General,” Bush said, echoing a talking point that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has used to justify his planned vote for Lynch–even though a vote for her is a vote for Obama’s executive amnesty.  Read more at breitbart.com.

 

 

Governor Susana Martinez- My Kind of Republican

April 17, 2015 by  
Filed under Hot Topics, National Info

May all other Governors follow her example-  Gov Martinez of New Mexico just signed a new law that severely curtails the illegal seizure of an individuals property under the Civil Forfeiture Laws. There is a bill this legislative session in Tallahassee, maybe our elected officials can do the same.

From The Daily Signal-      Civil asset forfeiture is a law enforcement tool enabling authorities to seize property permanently if the property is allegedly related to a crime. However, at the state and federal level numerous examples of abuse have come to light in recent years, and various states (and the District of Columbia) have ramped up due process protections for property owners.

Hannity Takes on Dem Rep Who Said ‘Feels Like Open Season on Black Men’

Sean Hannity took on Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA), who said on the House floor this week that “it feels like open season on black men in America.”

Right off the bat, Hannity’s statistics on the number of black Americans killed by police directly conflicted with those presented by Johnson, and the Fox host pressed Johnson on whether “black-on-black crime” is the real problem at hand. Read more at mediaite.com.

You might remember that this is the same congressman Hank Johnson (D, GA) who during a House Armed Services Committee hearing in January 2011, expressed his fears while questioning Admiral Robert Willard, head of the U.S. Pacific fleet, about a proposed increase of forces on the island, that Guam might capsize if we sent more troops, families and logistics there. Johnson, an attorney, is also a former county judge.
