TRYING TO FIT IN : Michelle Obama Likens Her Upbringing to Senegalese Children’s

young michelle obama TRYING TO FIT IN : Michelle Obama Likens Her Upbringing to Senegalese Childrens

Its really comical hearing Michelle Obama constantly try to claim she was poor growing up, despite the fact we know she was easily middle class, nice home, nice neighborhood, good school. But as usual, she needs to try and fit in and act like she’s like what ever crowd she’s around. It always baffles me when people say she’s such a great person, she’s a liar. Period.

VIA Weekly Standard :

In Dakar, Senegal, speaking at the Martin Luther King Middle School, First Lady Michelle Obama likened her upbringing to the upbringing of the Senegalese children at the school. Obama told the children of her “experience,” and how it was similar to theirs.

“I know that what you all are doing here isn’t always easy,” the first lady said to applause. “I know that some of you may be the first in your families to attend a school like Martin Luther King, so there might be people at home who don’t quite understand what you’re going through as you work to succeed here. And I know that for some of you, just sitting in these classrooms each day requires great sacrifices by your families.”

“I know a little bit about this from my own experience. See, like many of you, I didn’t grow up in a family with a lot of money. My parents had to work hard every day to support us, so they never had the chance to get the kind of education they wanted for themselves. But they had big dreams for me. And more than anything in the world, they wanted me to graduate from secondary school and attend a university. So they, too, made tremendous sacrifices to make that dream come true,” the first lady continued.

HYPOCRISY ALERT! Obama touts the Kenyan National ID cards for Voter Registration, same idea he call’s it Racist in USA

obama hypocrite HYPOCRISY ALERT! Obama touts the Kenyan National ID cards for Voter Registration, same idea he calls it Racist in USA

This is EXACTLY what conservatives and republicans are trying to do here in the USA, where him and his cronies call racist. Apparently that isn’t the same in Kenya. Once again we see that the only reason he hates it here is because it would stifle all of those millions of fraudulent votes he received in the last two elections.

VIA Weekly Standard :

As President Obama and his family continue their tour of Africa, the White House put out a Fact Sheet entitled “U.S. Support for Strengthening Democratic Institutions, Rule of Law, and Human Rights in Sub-Saharan Africa.” One of the first items highlighted by the White House is a $53 million program in Kenya that helps young people ”obtain National identification cards, a prerequisite to voter registration.”

Civil society and independent media play a critical role in any vibrant democracy.  Across sub-Saharan Africa, the United States supports efforts to ensure civil society organizations and independent media can organize, advocate, and raise awareness with governments and the private sector to improve political processes, transparency, and government performance.  Examples include:

• In Kenya, the $53 million Yes Youth Can program empowers nearly one million Kenyan youth to use their voices for advocacy in national and local policy-making, while also creating economic opportunities.  In advance of Kenya’s March 2013 general elections, Yes Youth Can’s “My ID My Life” campaign helped 500,000 youth obtain National identification cards, a prerequisite to voter registration, and carried out a successful nationwide campaign with Kenyan civic organizations to elicit peace pledges from all presidential aspirants. [emphasis added]

At an August 2012 press briefing, Jay Carney had the following to say about a Texas voter ID law:

And on the voter ID case, I can tell you that, as you know, this administration believes it should be easier for eligible citizens to vote — to register and vote. We should not be imposing unnecessary obstacles or barriers to voter participation.

 

BRAINWASHED : 26% of Obama Supporters View Tea Party as Nation’s Top Terror Threat

Liberal Media Bias Corrupts my Country 240x300 BRAINWASHED : 26% of Obama Supporters View Tea Party as Nation’s Top Terror Threat

This is what happens when you have the liberal media who will lie and say anything to demonize Obama’s opponents on air 24/7. Than again, these people still support Obama so their intelligence level is either insanely low, or they’re just blind followers who really don’t know much about anything anyway.

VIA Rasmussen :

Half of all voters consider radical Muslims the bigger terrorist threat facing the nation, but supporters of President Obama consider the Tea Party to be as big a danger.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters consider radical Muslims to be the bigger threat to the United States today. Thirteen percent (13%) view the Tea Party that way, and another 13% consider other political and religious extremists to be the larger danger. Six percent (6%) point to local militia groups. Two percent (2%) see the Occupy Wall Street movement as the bigger terrorist threat. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

However, among those who approve of the president’s job performance, just 29% see radical Muslims as the bigger threat. Twenty-six percent (26%) say it’s the Tea Party that concerns them most. Among those who Strongly Approve of the president, more fear the Tea Party than radical Muslims.

As for those who disapprove of Obama’s performance, 75% consider radical Muslims to be the bigger terrorist threat. Just one percent (1%) name the Tea Party.

obamacare bad 1a 550x412 IRONY : Mass. Dems seek a waiver from ObamaCare, despite the state being the foundation of it...

Some times you read things like this and you really have to wonder if there are a lot of schizophrenic’s in the Democratic party.

VIA Forbes :

A very interesting ACA development is taking place in Massachusetts today as the state that “inspired” Obamacare tries to reconcile its current law with the new federal law. Push back in the compliance effort is coming from an unexpected source, the senior Democratic budget writer in the State Senate, Senator Stephen Brewer, presumably with support from the Senate President as well. The amendment that was filed would force President Obama’s good friend Governor Deval Patrick (D), and his Administration, to seek a waiver from certain elements of Obamacare. The move could come to a head if the provision lands on the Governor’s desk, resulting in an embarrassing political moment for the Obama Administration since the ACA is forcing significant changes to a state law they claim acted as a model in Washington.

Turns out, the conventional wisdom comparing Romneycare and Obamacare has proven to be overly simplistic, as this is the third ACA-related bill being debated in the Commonwealth. The latest sizable 100-section bill controversially writes into law an abdication of insurance regulation to the federal government and is the basis for the amendment. While state officials have known for some time that the ACA-required changes to rating factors would result in “extreme premium increases” and spike premiums for 60% of small companies(some as high as 50+%) in the state, the best the Patrick Administration could do was spread the increases out over 3 years under an agreement from CMS.

Treasury finds that the IRS targeted 292 Tea Party groups, only 6 liberal groups… Exposing the liberal lie it was all groups.

barack obama richard nixon 550x289 Treasury finds that the IRS targeted 292 Tea Party groups, only 6 liberal groups... Exposing the liberal lie it was all groups.

Well anyone who believed liberal politicians and commentators that “Tea Party” was really just a codeword for ALL groups is clearly an idiot. This just proves the IRS was told to target people who disagreed with Obama so he could win the election. We already know people in the White House knew about it as well. Now the question is, did Obama order it or at least know about it? Chances are, yes! If he didn’t, he is incompetent and unfit to lead this country. Not that we needed this to expose that though.

VIA Washington Examiner :

Refuting Democratic suggestions that progressive groups were also swept up in the IRS probe of the tax status of Tea Party organizations, the Treasury Department’s inspector general has revealed that just six progressive groups were targeted compared to 292 conservative groups.

In a letter to congressional Democrats, the inspector general also said that 100 percent of Tea Party groups seeking special tax status were put under IRS review, while only 30 percent of the progressive groups felt the same pressure.

The Wednesday letter to the top Democrat on the House Ways and Means Committee punched a huge hole in Democratic claims that progressive groups were targeted as much as the Tea Party groups from May 2010-May 2012, the height of the Tea Party movement.

The letter from the Treasury Department Inspector General for Tax Administration revealed that there just weren’t many progressive groups who even sought special tax exempt status. A total of 20 sought it, and six were probed. All 292 Tea Party groups, meanwhile, were part of the IRS witchhunt.

Governments Star Witness in the Trayvon Martin/Zimmerman Case Scrubs her Twitter account of incrimidating posts

This entire case is nothing more than an example of how liberals are using cases that would normally be thrown out due to lack of evidence to distract people from other things happening. Sadly millions are falling for this.

VIA The Smoking Gun :

In a late-night scrubbing spree, dozens of embarrassing and incriminating posts were deleted Tuesday evening from the Twitter account of a Florida woman who has been described as a star government witness in the George Zimmerman murder case, The Smoking Gun has learned.

The sanitizing of Rachel Jeantel’s Twitter account came as the 19-year-old Miami resident prepared to take the stand and testify about a phone call she had with Trayvon Martin immediately before the unarmed 17-year-old was shot to death by Zimmerman in February 2012.

 

As TSG reported yesterday, Jeantel, pictured above, maintains a Twitter account (@MsRachel_94) to which she has made more than 200 posts over the past five months. Many of the teenager’s tweets referred to drinking, smoking, and getting high. She also made references to Martin’s death, referred to acquaintances as “bitch” and “nigga,” and wrote about having “jackass lawyers on my ass.”

Yesterday afternoon, after TSG sought to contact several of Jeantel’s Twitter followers and Facebook friends, 14 tweets–and 13 linked Twitpic photos–were deleted from her Twitter account (which carries the personal motto “My Character And Action Describe Who I Am”). The removed tweets included references to drinking and a link to a sexually suggestive set of photos. Another killed tweet, from June 23, read “Court nails” and linked to a photo of fingernails (presumably Jeantel’s) with fresh orange polish. Additionally, several Twitpic images of assorted liquor bottles were deleted.

The scrubbing of Jeantel’s Twitter account, however, did not end there.

After 10 PM (Eastern) last night, 43 other tweets were deleted. The postings disappeared about two hours after TSG published a story about Jeantel’s social media musings. A TSG comparison of Jeantel’s sanitized Twitter account with the version from early Tuesday afternoon showed that the number of published tweets plummeted from 202 to 146.

harry reid finger Harry Reid blocks a Bi Partisan student loan bill that keeps loan rates low...

They already got their votes in the last election. They’ll clearly wait until its closer to the next election before Reid will allow it, as he attempts to take full responsibility for it as he has done with several other bills in the past.

VIA Washington Post :

Efforts to keep interest rates on new student loans from doubling appeared to be falling apart Wednesday as the Democratic leader of the Senate declared a bipartisan proposal unacceptable.

With just days to spare before a July 1 deadline sends subsidized Stafford loan rates up from 3.4 percent to 6.8 percent, a group of senators from both parties announced a plan that would link interest rates on new federally backed loans to the financial markets. The deal would avert a costly rate hike for now but could spell higher rates in coming years.

The proposal seemed to stall even before it had a chance to be considered.

The chamber’s top Democrat, Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada, said it could never pass. The Democratic chairman of the education panel said he couldn’t back a plan that doesn’t include stronger protections for students and parents.

Undeterred, Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., said Wednesday he would introduce the legislation on Thursday, along with Republican collaborators Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee and Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina. Sen. Angus King of Maine, an independent, also signed on to the plan.

Aides to Manchin said he expected to have Democrats on board, as well.

“This deal shows the American people that bipartisanship and common sense are alive in Washington,” Manchin said.

Muslims Riot against Chinese Han in West China, at least 27 Dead

The Arab spring isn’t over.  Now Muslims in China are still trying to take over West China and form their own country. Independent from China.

VIA Sky News :

At least 27 people have been killed and three others injured after knife-wielding gangs went on the rampage through a town in far western China, according to state media.

The Xinhua news agency said mobs attacked police stations, a local government building and a construction site in the Turpan Oasis in the Turkic-speaking Xinjiang region.

Nine police officers and security guards, as well as eight civilians, were killed before police shot dead 10 of the attackers.

The death toll from the unrest was the worst in the restive region since July 2009, when nearly 200 people were killed in riots in the regional capital Urumqi, involving local predominantly Muslim Uighurs and ethnic Han Chinese.

Xinhua said Wednesday’s unrest erupted at about 6am in the remote township of Lukqun, about 120 miles southeast of Urumqi.

Gangs attacked officials and civilians, stabbing people and setting fire to police vehicles, Xinhua reported.

Residents told Sky News there was a heavy police presence in the township. Search results for the words Xinjiang and Lukqun, in both English and Chinese, were unavailable on Chinese search engines.

Ol’ Bill’s memory is failing – Clinton hails Supreme Courts Decision to overturn DOMA Bill he Signed into law

bill clinton hillary clinton1 Ol Bills memory is failing   Clinton hails Supreme Courts Decision to overturn DOMA Bill he Signed into law

Ol’ Bill has so many lies to remember he has a problem remembering things he actually did.

VIA Weekly Standard :

President Bill Clinton released a statement, together with his wife Hillary Clinton, hailing the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act, a bill he signed into law in 1996.

“By overturning the Defense of Marriage Act, the Court recognized that discrimination towards any group holds us all back in our efforts to form a more perfect union. We are also encouraged that marriage equality may soon return to California. We applaud the hard work of the advocates who have fought so relentlessly for this day, and congratulate Edie Windsor on her historic victory,” the Clintons’ statement reads.

The statement makes no mention of their previous support for the law.

DNC already crying racism and flat out lying as they beg for money over Supreme Court Voting Rights Act decision

race card v1 DNC already crying racism and flat out lying as they beg for money over Supreme Court Voting Rights Act decision

Here we go again, more fake cries of racism from the left followed with immediate calls for people to send them money. It seems that they’ve resorted to doing two things, screaming racism and begging for money in recent years. Typical debate with a liberal… “Obama eats Raisin Bran? Eh, I prefer Total K it tastes better” – Conservative. “That is seriously racist, you radical conservative :: starts fundraiser to support Obama and beg’s Raisin Bran to endorse it ::” – Liberal.

VIA Washington Examiner :

The Democratic National Committee was swift to slam the Supreme Court’s decision to gut the Voting Rights Act as “an injustice.” And they’ve already started to raise money off the decision, with plans to target Republicans they claim are fighting voters’ rights.

“We faced a setback with the Supreme Court’s decision today, that’s for sure. I can’t sugarcoat that. But I hope you won’t give up, because let me tell you — I am most certainly not giving up. Stand with Democrats who are fighting Republican attacks on voting rights,” urged DNC member Donna Brazile Tuesday in her note posted below.

Friend —

The Voting Rights Act, first signed into law in 1965, was a keystone victory of the civil rights movement. American citizens withstood beatings, fire hoses and dogs to see the law passed. Some even gave their lives.

And for decades since, the law has protected the right to vote for millions of America’s citizens— regardless of faith, color or creed.

Today’s ruling by the Supreme Court striking down parts of this important law is more than a disappointment — it’s an injustice. But we can’t let it discourage us or force us out of this fight.

There is so much more work we can do to ensure everyone has the right — and the ability — to vote. That’s the work Democrats are doing every day.

Say you’re with me and Democrats who are fighting to protect the right to vote for all Americans— add your name today.
