Fitton on DoJ…

leave a comment »

Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton has  pointed out  that the same Department of Justice Public Integrity Unit which sought ways to prosecute Tea Party groups told the FBI to stop investigating the Clinton Foundation.   If you think the Obama Administration isn’t corrupt,  you are wearing concrete blinders.

Obama’s lowest rating…

leave a comment »

Are we Americans finally beginning to pay attention?   Perhaps,  but how clueless are the  42% who  still approve of the job His Oneness is doing?

Six months ago,  would you have believed that 42% of those polled  would identify  with Obama politically,  and 42% with the Tea Party?

Michelle’s failing garden…

leave a comment »

The Tea Party  was blamed  for the destruction of the showcase garden of Our Lady of Perpetual Dissatisfaction.   The destruction of  the garden is all the fault of the shutdown,  and therefore the Republicans.   What this actually tells you is that none of the Obamas set foot in the garden unless the cameras are rolling,  and are much too lazy to actually go out and gather their own food.   Honest work holds no allure for the elite or the entitled…

Why did…

…the IRS go after conservative nonprofits?   It’s not like anyone at the White House has ever  called Republicans enemies,  or terrorists,  or any Democrat in and  out of  Congress has called the  Tea Party terrorists  and  anarchists,  and conservatives  fanatics  and other  unpleasant appellations.   It isn’t as if prominent Democrats and progressive groups chose to  contact the IRS  to demand that it investigate Tea Party and other conservative groups.

Lois Lerner,  who has  chosen to retire  with a very generous taxpayer -funded pension rather than answer inconvenient questions,  was placed at the IRS to continue her  governmental abuse  of taxpayers on behalf of progressives.   She did not have to receive a memo telling her what actions to take because Democrats were making it perfectly clear in their statements and actions that those in disagreement with progressive policies and plans were to be considered dangerous.

I hope everyone just pays the penalty the first year,  which will make an already broken scheme literally broke.  In the alternative,  if you live near a state with really cheap rates, go there and sign up.   The government has already said it can’t do the required checks to see if you’re eligible for subsidies,  so how could it check whether or not you really mean to move to that state?   Anything you can do to throw sand in the works would be good,  even if it’s no more than tying up the computer sign-up systems.

By the way,  Ms. Lerner was right to consider the Tea Party dangerous —  one in five  Americans is a Tea Party patriot.

Tea Party vs police…

leave a comment »

The Capitol Hill police  got caught  trying to block Tea Party people  from the  immigration rally,  not merely a bad idea,  but one without legal justification.   Who told the Capitol Hill cops to do that?

Meanwhile,  Judi McLeod makes  some keen  observations.

Justice corrupted…

leave a comment »

The Department of Justice is no longer making any pretense of  following the law.   If it feels justified in persecuting people who are lawfully and peacefully protesting outside abortion clinics,  what makes you think DoJ won’t go after the Tea Party when they’re protesting His Oneness?

Downgrade blame…

leave a comment »

I didn’t listen to His Oneness on Monday,  but I’m unsurprised that Brian Bolduc did and  found him,  as ever,  blaming others for his own heavy hand of failure,  while simultaneously claiming it on an S&P  math error.   Not even the Washington Post’s Dana Milbank,  a reliable cheerleader for Obama,  found the  speech wanting.

The Democrats’ talking point this weekend was to call this a  Tea Party downgrade.    Considering that recent  Gallup polls  show that the  percentage of Americans who expressly state that they are supporters of the Tea Party movement is currently about as large at 22% of the population as the 21% who say they are liberal,  Ed Morrissey is likely correct that there  will be blowback  on the Dems.   Michael Walsh  views the attack  on the Tea Party as testing for Obama’s re-election campaign,  so it’s significant,  even if John Hinderaker says  they can’t  sell it.    Rick Santelli defends the Tea  Party here.

By the way,  after His Oneness gave his I’m-not-responsible-speech, the stock market went from 400 to  600 points down.  Perhaps it knew  more downgrades  were coming?

Was George  Soros the man  who bet that downgrades were coming?
