Are official accounting firms about to roll back some of the foolish reporting published last week, benefiting the Obama Administration just a week before the national election?

Thursday morning,  8:30 am eastern time,  first time claim numbers will be released, and,  Friday,  the Feds will publish the unemployment numbers for the month of September.

Remember last week?  We jumped from the creation of around 120,000 new jobs for the month,  to a whopping 873,000 jobs.   We called this for what it was,  "an impossible lie!!,"   just in time for the election.  

Well,  how times have changed in just seven days. 

ADP,  the firm that prepares the unemployment numbers for the Feds,  each month,  is joining itself to a partnership with Moody's Analytics,  beginning now. The accuracy of this new accounting partnership will be on display,  beginning tomorrow.  I believe the Department of Labor so disqualified itself as a reporting institution, that this change was a necessity.  It only surprises me as to the quickness of the adjustment.  

Thursday and Friday should be full of a whole new world of economic trick or treat.  Should be a hoot.

NY Times goes off the deep end as it attempts to criiticize Romney for injecting commonsence into a discussion on federal emergency aid.

In a ridiculous article,  an editorial, if you will,  found in the NYT's Monday edition,  entitled "Big Storm Requires Big Government,"  the big spenders at the Times chastised the GOP and Mitt Romney for their opposition to an increased role on the part of FEMA and the Federal Government.   

Disaster coordination is one of the most vital functions of “big government,” which is why Mitt Romney wants to eliminate it. [and this editor says, Huh???]  At a Republican primary debate last year, Mr. Romney was asked whether emergency management was a function that should be returned to the states. He not only agreed, he went further.

“Absolutely,” he said. “Every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that’s the right direction. And if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that’s even better.” Mr. Romney not only believes that states acting independently can handle the response to a vast East Coast storm better than Washington, but that profit-making companies can do an even better job. He said it was “immoral” for the federal government to do all these things if it means increasing the debt. 

It’s an absurd notion, but it’s fully in line with decades of Republican resistance to federal emergency planning. FEMA, created by President Jimmy Carter, was elevated to cabinet rank in the Bill Clinton administration, but was then demoted by President George W. Bush, who neglected it, subsumed it into the Department of Homeland Security, and placed it in the control of political hacks. The disaster of Hurricane Katrina was just waiting to happen.   

Understand that none of the above review presents that which is problematic,  in and of itself. FEMA did not exist before Jimmy Carter,  and we all got along just fine.  Katrina was not a problem resulting from slow response times centered at the federal level,  but was the fault of a wholly dysfunctional Louisiana State system and an idiot's form of governance at the local (City of New Orleans) level, period.  

As it turns out,  "coordination" and [borrowed] monies" are all the feds have to offer in such cases.  Not only are the several states different in their demands for reconstruction and prevention,  in most cases these very differences are, first,  neighborhood and community differences,  then state issues.  

Understand that emergency aid is never an issue of the budget.  Such expenditures are never counted against the typical view of the national debt.  That way,  a particular Administration is not charged with such.  While this arrangement is fair to the particular Administration,  it leaves us with a confused and inaccurate view of our debt.  

At any rate,  you should know that a Mitt Romney Administration will be as concerned about the cost of true emergencies as the next Administration. 

In case of a hurricane, we will leave no American behind. When it comes to our soldiers, who gives a rip?

<<<<  Obama meeting at 5 in the morning,  concerned over the damage being done because of Sandy.  No such meeting ever took place with regard to Ambassador Stevens and the murders at our Libyan consulate.

Participating via teleconference, clockwise from top left, are: Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano; FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate; Rick Knabb, Director of the National Hurricane Center; Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood; and Secretary of Energy Steven Chu.

In a word, filth as preferred political speak, is the language of Michael Moore, and - by implication - Barack Hussein Obama. This would never happen in the GOP. Indeed, this election is about choices.

Today's publishing hours will be much abbreviated due to the after effects of Sandy. Both campaigns are shut down for the day as are many of the sites we use to gather information for the day's commentary. Udpate: Gallup and Rasmussen are down, today, as well (no article)

According to newly released polling from Rasmussen Reports, by a margin of 15 percentage points (54 to 39 percent), likely voters now support the repeal of President Obama’s centerpiece legislation (no article)

Foreign donations are illegal except at Obama for President. Here are two donations to Obama from Osama. Geeeeesh

WASHINGTON – Using a Pakistani Internet Protocol, or IP address, a disposable credit card and a fake address, “Osama bin Laden” has successfully donated twice to Barack Obama’s presidential re-election campaign.

The “Bin Laden” donations, actually made by WND staff, included a listed occupation of “deceased terror chief” and a stated employer of “al-Qaida.”
“Bin Laden” is currently set up on the official campaign website to contribute more to Obama’s campaign. The name is also registered as a volunteer.

Since the “foreign” contribution was sent, “Bin Laden’s” email address has received several solicitations from Obama’s campaign asking for more donations. . . . . . . . Read the full article at WND

Friday is "redemption day" when it comes to false reporting and the continue issue of record unemployment. Will the Feds use the East Coast storm as an excuse to stall its report until after this election?

UPDATE: Labor Department ‘Working Hard’ to Ensure Jobs Report Released on Time.


Remarkable.  The Department of Labor may have come up with the perfect excuse for delaying the economic bad news for September. 


Understand that Obama changed the narrative  as regards unemployment and re-election. In late 2009,  Conservatives were reminding folks that no sitting president has been re-elected to a second term  with unemployment at 7.2% or higher,  since the days of FDR.  While that is true,  the Obama folks,  masters of the rhetorical shell game,  changed the narrative to read,  “No sitting president has been re-elected with an unemployment rate of 8% or higher,  since the days of FDR,”  and the lazy media allowed this to become the accepted talking point. 


Two months ago,  the unemployment rate stood at 8.3%.  In July,  suddenly that rate fell to 8.1% when all indicators for the month told us the rate would be 8.4 or 8.5 percent,  on the strength of the fact that 44 of the 50 states recorded increased unemployment numbers. 


August was even worse for purposes of rhetorical fraud.  On the first Friday of September,  Labor announced the addition of 873,000,  the largest such report in 30 years.  600,000 of these jobs were part time and 200, 000 were temporary jobs.  In other words,  that report was a sham.   It brought the unemployment rate down from 8.1  to the magic number of 7.8 percent.  No one believed these numbers were credible.   But the Administration immediately began using the report in its campaign propaganda.    


After two months of phony reporting,  it is time for a correction.   Problem:   today,  we learn that the Department may put this off until after the election.  

Has the "perfect storm"  given the Administration the "perfect excuse?"  We will know come this Friday.  

Since the 11 - 17 October post debate (first debate) Romney has led Obama every day - today, 51 to 46

Mitt Romney gained a point over President Obama, according to a Gallup daily tracking poll released Monday, and now holds a healthy 5-percentage-point national lead.
Romney took 51 percent support in the poll of likely voters, compared to 46 percent for Obama.
The GOP nominee also pulled even with Obama among registered voters, 48 percent to 48, after trailing by a point on Sunday.
The survey is a rolling seven-day average through Oct. 28, so it has almost fully digested voter sentiment since last Monday’s third and final presidential debate. . . . read more at The Hill


And to think,  a national budget is "the law."  Just something else this bunch of lawless misfits refused to obey.

A very significant poll is out, this morning, and it is very good news for the American patriot -- Romney 52, Obama 47.

The bipartisan Battleground Poll, in its “vote election model,” is projecting that Mitt Romney will defeat President Obama 52 percent to 47 percent.  The poll also found that Romney has an even greater advantage among middle class voters, 52 percent to 45 percent.

While Obama can close the gap with a strong voter turnout effort, “reports from the field would indicate that not to be the case, and Mitt Romney may well be heading to a decisive victory,” says pollster Ed Goeas.

Should Romney win by 5 percentage points, it would increase Republican chances of gaining control of the Senate.  His coattails would help elect GOP Senate candidates in Virginia, Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida.  “Republicans are now certain to hold the House,” Goeas said, “regardless of how the presidential race turns out" . . . . . . . . .   The Weekly Standard

Eight Days and counting: Is Obama running out of time? Are we looking at an electorate making its final decision as to the future of this country?

On our first chart,  make note of a very important change,  potentially,  in the expressed dynamics of  the two trend lines.  For starters,  the "mirrored" result of the two lines  seem to indicate an existential relationship between the ratings of the two men.  If that is the case, how Romney finishes out his campaign is more important than what Obama does.  

Secondly,  understanding that "trend lines" are never consistently linear,  the "bounce" in the two lines is noticeably more consistent (smaller),  less volatile in the vertical movement (up and down), indicating an electorate that is settling in who it believes is the more preferable candidate. 

October 28 - Sunday
As you may know,  the "Strongly Approve" is a much more important marker to this editor than [even] "Total Approve,"  because it represents those who believe in Obama's methodology and person without question.  It is nice to know that this number equals less than a third of our nation's population.  

Understand that this percentage ("Strongly Approve") also represents the most enthusiastic demographic within the Obama/Progressive community.  If we compare this number to the 46% on the day before the 2008 election,  we can see just how far behind the "eight ball" the Obama Administration finds itself.

The Des Moines Register endorsement: Mitt Romney offers a fresh economic vision

Paper endorses first Republican (Romney) in 40 years.  This is one of those endorsements that might make a difference.  Understand that the editor’s  spend 30 minutes on the phone,  last week,  talking to Obama about their endorsement and decided to go with Romney, anyway.  Read their statement, here:

Sad facts about Obama's green job agenda -- little more than a ponzi game for special interests
<<<<  5  million new  green jobs promised; 60,000 delivered; only 30,000 are new jobs.

From the Labor Department’s inspector general:

Only 38 percent of those who have completed training got jobs based on that training

Only 16 percent kept jobs for at least six months — the key measure of success for the program.

“Outcomes for participants were far less than originally proposed.” 

The government earmarked more than $400 million for green jobs training programs, and $328.5 million has been spent so far.

About half were already working in the energy sector and wanted retraining.

Half were potential new energy workers.

Of those workers who already had energy-sector jobs, the auditors said they were retrained, even though they didn't need it.

“We found no evidence that the incumbent workers in our sample required services or training to keep their job or obtain a new one,” the investigators said in their report.

The audit was released by House oversight committee Chairman Darrell E. Issa, who requested the update.

Mr. Issa said in addition to poor performance records, the green jobs money “served as a slush fund” for the Obama administration to dole out payments to allies “like the National Council of La Raza, the Blue Green alliance and the U.S. Steelworkers Union.”

Mitt Romney’s Gallup daily tracking poll numbers are now better than any presidential challenger dating back to 1936.

Mitt Romney’s Gallup daily tracking poll numbers are now better than any presidential challenger dating back to 1936.

The Gallup daily tracking poll of likely voters released on October 26 shows Mr. Romney leading Barack Obama 51% to 46%. Mr. Romney holds the lead in the nine elections since 1936 in which either an incumbent president was defeated or there was no incumbent. Tied for second are Mr. Obama (2008) and George H.W. Bush (1992) with 50% at this point in the race, followed by John F. Kennedy (1960), Jimmy Carter (1980) and George W. Bush (2000) with 49%, Dwight D. Eisenhower with 48% (1952), Richard M. Nixon with 44% (1968), Bill Clinton with 40% (1992) and finally Ronald Reagan who actually trailed Jimmy Carter in 1980 with 39% to Carter’s 45%.

Mr. Romney is even competitive with some victorious incumbents.  Mr. Romney is tied with Presidents Eisenhower (1956) and George W. Bush (2004) in their reelection bids, he is ahead of where FDR was in 1940 and 1944, and far ahead of Bill Clinton’s 40% at this point in 1996. Mr. Romney also leads Harry Truman, who at 41% trailed challenger Thomas Dewey by four points. But he is being well outpaced by victors in the blowout elections of 1936, 1964, 1972 and 1984. Presidents Roosevelt, Johnson, Nixon and Reagan won handily -- their challengers won a combined total of 10 states.

Petraeus Throws Obama Under The Bus: "We Weren't The Ones Who Denied Military Support To Americans Under Attack In Benghazi…"

Breaking news on Benghazi: the CIA spokesman, presumably at the direction of CIA director David Petraeus, has put out this statement: “No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate.”
So who in the government did tell “anybody” not to help those in need? Someone decided not to send in military assets to help those Agency operators. Would the secretary of defense make such a decision on his own? No.
It would have been a presidential decision. There was presumably a rationale for such a decision. What was it? When and why—and based on whose counsel obtained in what meetings or conversations—did President Obama decide against sending in military assets to help the Americans in need? . . . . . . . . . . . .  read more in the Weekly Standard

 The Weekly Standard reports that Petraeus's denial effectively implicates President Barack Obama, since a refusal to assist "would have been a presidential decision."

According to today’s Gallup tracking poll, Romney’s lead over Barack Obama has increased to a five point margin -- 51% to 46%. Yesterday, 10/25, the tracking poll had Romney up by only three points, 50% to 47%. (no article)

Ex-soldiers are buying TV ads attacking Barack Obama. Here's why.

A group of ex-soldiers are buying TV ads attacking President Barack Obama that will run during the first showing of a pro-Obama movie created by his Hollywood backers.
The made-for-TV movie, “Seal Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden,” is slated to run Nov. 4 on the National Geographic Channel. It was produced by Obama supporter and mega-donor Harvey Weinstein.
Weinstein reportedly ordered that the film be re-edited to give Obama a central role in directing the daring raid that successfully killed Osama bin Laden. Weinstein’s movie is so pro-Obama that National Geographic refused to run until Weinstein removed a scene portraying Gov. Mitt Romney as an opponent of the strike.
The group, dubbed OPSEC, is buying the anti-Obama ads on local cable systems in swing-state cities like Tampa, Orlando, Miami, Denver, Las Vegas, Charlotte, Raleigh, Cincinnati and Richmond. . . . .  Daily Caller

Gallup releases bombshell survey of likely voters for this November.

This morning, Gallup released a bombshell survey of likely voters this November. It wasn’t a horse race poll, i.e. which candidate is ahead, but rather a look at the underlying demographics that will make up the electorate this November. They slap the survey with a very misleading headline, “2012 U.S. Electorate Looks Like 2008.” While this is true in many respects, it obscures one very big difference. For the first time in a presidential election, more Republicans will vote than Democrats.

In 2008, 54% of likely voters identified as Democrat or lean Democrat. 42% of likely voters identified as GOP or lean GOP. In other words, the electorate, including independents who lean towards a particular party, was D+12. This year, however, the Democrat advantage has disappeared. 49% of likely voters today identify as GOP or lean GOP. Just 46% of likely voters are or lean towards the Democrats. This is a 15-point swing towards the GOP from 2008 to an outright +3 advantage for the GOP. By comparison, in 2004, when Bush won reelection, the electorate was evenly split, with each party getting support from 48% of likely voters.

Since the debate, Romney holds lead over Obama



An increasing welfare state with no rescue plan in sight except to change out Administrations.

( – The number of American workers collecting federal disability insurance benefits hit yet another record high in October, according to the Social Security Administration.

This month 8,803,335 disabled workers are collecting benefits, up from the previous record of 8,786,049 set in September.

In February 2009, the first full month after President Barack Obama took office, there were 7,469,240 workers collecting federal disability insurance. Thus, so far in Obama’s term, the number of workers collecting disability has increased by 1,334,095. That works out to a net increase of about 29,646 per month (1,334,095 divided by 45 months), or an average increase of about 975 per day (1,334,095 divided by 1,369 days).

Editor's notes:
Add 46.7 million folks on food stamps,  and we have a sad a situation.     Understand that Obama counts these numbers into building the middle class  "from the middle out, from the bottom up."  It is nothing short of "trickle down economics,"  but without any sense of personal responsibility.  

Of the 780,000 jobs added to the economy, last month,  a full 630,000 are temporary and very lowing paying jobs.  Obama has no plan for adding to middle class wealth via jobs and hard work; never has he had such a plan.  

And, if Romney can do no better in four years,  we can and should kick his Administration back onto the streets  as well.  

Detroit News Editorial: On balance, we recommend Mitt Romney as President of the United States.

In this editorial,  the Detroit News sets forth its recommendations of Romney and puts into context those issues with which it disagrees with the Governor.  On balance,  they see Mitt Romney as the man of the hour.  I believe the editors'  have done a fine job of  "covering the bases,"  when it comes to presenting a comprehensive polemic favoring the Governor  --  this blog's editor.   (red highlights are mine)

Editorial comment from the Detroit News:

Americans will be making two choices when they cast their presidential ballots on Nov. 6. They will be selecting the individual who will lead the nation over the next four years, a period that promises to be every bit as challenging as the past four. They also will be charting a long-term course for America.
It's a big deal decision between two honorable men with starkly different roadmaps.

President Barack Obama came into office in 2009 riding a wave of hope and change. Unfortunately, he has not delivered on the nation's yearning for change nor on the specific promises he made to fix what is broken. The president is asking the country to be patient, but his plan isn't producing results that would merit more patience, and the president hasn't spelled out what he would do differently in a second term.

Hope and change are still what Americans are seeking. This time, Republican challenger and Michigan native Mitt Romney offers the best hope of changing the nation's fate.

Romney brings credible plan

We anticipate that Romney will govern in the same manner as Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, a practical leader who shares his background as a business executive.

Snyder has rapidly set Michigan on the path to revival by applying sound business practices and accountability to government operations. We expect that Romney will also employ a results-oriented approach and be ever mindful of his customer, the taxpayer.
Also like Snyder, we find Romney to be less partisan than the typical politician, and not bound by rigid ideology. The nation will be best served if the entrenched disagreements of the past four years give way to cooperation and achievement.

We are confident that Romney will be focused on the bottom line, and will divert the United States from "the road to Greece," as he's said on the campaign trail.
Hard choices to reduce the debt and deficit cannot be postponed. Spending has increased by nearly 25 percent in four years, $5 trillion was added to the national debt and the annual deficit doubled, with no return to fiscal discipline in sight.

The Keynesian approach has not worked. Despite an $830 billion stimulus and increased annual spending, the economic recovery is the weakest in post-World War II history. Investors remain on the sidelines, afraid to put their money into job creating projects because of the uncertainty about future tax and regulatory policy.

Romney's five-point plan for economic revival centers on energy independence, a goal that is finally achievable thanks to the natural gas boom and development of the Canadian oil sands; a better trained work force; trade that increases the demand for American goods and services; debt and deficit reduction and promoting the growth of small businesses. If implemented in urgent fashion, we believe the plan will work.

Romney would simplify the tax code and create a regulatory environment that works to protect consumers and assure a fair marketplace, but doesn't place the regulators in control of every private sector decision.

A solid resume

As a venture capitalist, the ability to make a deal was the key to Romney's success. He understands that most deals begin with the parties in adversarial positions but must end with them both satisfied that they've got as much as they've given.
What's missing in Washington is that willingness to move toward a middle ground. This all-or-nothing attitude has resulted in the inexcusable failure for three years of the president and Congress to pass a budget, a gridlock that has thwarted bipartisan solutions to the debt and deficit, and has now placed the country on the edge of a frightening fiscal cliff.
That's not leadership.

Romney has been an effective leader his entire career, both in business and politics. As governor of Massachusetts, he worked with a Democratic legislature to produce difficult health care and education reforms. We are optimistic he can restore the art of compromise to Washington.
He lifted the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics out of a desperate financial hole and turned the games into a successful enterprise.

As a businessman, he established a reputation as a turnaround expert, rescuing failed companies and returning them to profitability, allowing them to create jobs and economic opportunity for their communities. The federal bureaucracy is nothing if not a turnaround project.

Aside from his sterling resume, we also see in Romney a strength of character. He's his own man. We doubt he will be led off course by those who place party ahead of the good of the country. In Monday night's final presidential debate, Romney passed the commander-in-chief test, demonstrating a level-headed view of foreign affairs.

Thank Obama for auto rescue

Don't assume that it was a no-brainer for a conservative newspaper to endorse a conservative presidential candidate. We recognize and are grateful for the extraordinary contribution President Obama made to Michigan in leading the rescue of General Motors and Chrysler. Had either of those companies been allowed to go under, Michigan's economic maladies would have become fatal.
The president stepped up with the support the two automakers needed to keep themselves and their suppliers in business. We have said in past editorials that while Romney rightly advocated for structured bankruptcies in his infamous "Let Detroit Go Bankrupt" New York Times op-ed, he was wrong in suggesting the automakers could have found operating capital in the private markets. In that article, Romney suggested government-backed loans to keep the companies afloat post bankruptcy. But what GM and Chrysler needed were bridge loans to get them through the process, and the private credit markets were unwilling to provide them. Obama put a rescue team to work and they were true to the task.

We have criticized Obama in past editorials for rewriting bankruptcy law on the fly to hold harmless his supporters in the United Auto Workers union. Still, Michigan is better off today because of Obama's leadership on this issue.
Had Obama done as well with the rest of the economy, it would be hard to deny him a second term.
But Obama said himself in a midterm television interview that if by the end of his first term the economy was still broken, he should not be re-elected. 

Well, the economy is still broken, and we have lost confidence in the president's ability to make the necessary repairs.

Despite his wrong-headedness on the auto bailout, we believe Romney when he proclaims himself a "car guy." And he is indeed a son of Detroit, having grown up in the automobile industry. His father, George Romney, was the head of American Motors before becoming governor of Michigan.
Romney understands the industry, and will shield it from regulators who never tire of churning out new layers of mandates. It is important to remember that the automobile industry is never truly "saved;" there are always new challenges. Romney will be an advocate for Detroit, and if he can make the overall economy stronger, Michigan and the automakers will benefit greatly.

The course of a nation

As we said, this is more than a choice between two individuals. America is locked in a struggle over what it will be as a mature nation.
A country built on rugged individualism finds itself increasingly under the thumb of a federal government that is ever expanding its reach into the lives of its citizens.

Obama has proved himself a disciple of the doctrine that for every problem there's a government solution.
Romney, by contrast, embraces individual initiative and entrepreneurship. He would turn back the encroachment of the bureaucracy into the private sector.

Romney would replace the heavy hand of government with the invisible hand of a rational marketplace working to produce broad prosperity.
While both poverty and dependency have increased on Obama's watch, Romney promises to replace government checks with private sector jobs and reverse the decline in middle class incomes. It is heavy lifting, but we favor the candidate who is committed to it.
Romney's goal is to help all Americans live independent and productive lives, free to rise to the extent of their personal capabilities. He would not shield them from risk or the consequences of their decisions, but neither would he deny them their earned rewards.
Our hope is that Mitt Romney would restore faith in the core principles of free men and women, free minds and free markets that made America great, and will keep it so.

From The Detroit News:

Yesterday, Obama spoke in Denver to a crowd of 16,000. Last election cycle, same location - 100,000 . Here is the bad news straight from Brian Williams (hear the audio).

FYI : Nine suspects have been arrested in connection with the shooting of 14-year-old child activist Malala Yousufzai

Nine suspects have been arrested in connection with the shooting of 14-year-old child activist Malala Yousufzai, CNN quoted police officials as saying on Wednesday. The officials added that the main suspects, however, remained at large.
Malala, who spoke against the Taliban, was shot in the head on October 9, 2012.
The police identified Atta Ullah Khan, a 23-year-old man from the Swat district, as the primary suspect.
The police said they were tracing down Khan, who was a student of a master’s degree in chemistry. He had studied for his Bachelor of Science degree in physics at Jahanzeb College in Swat.
The school’s principal, Alam Zeb, said that Khan had given school officials three or four dates of birth. While condemning the attack, Zeb said that he was surprised to hear that a former student of the college may have been involved.
In addition to arresting six men — all of them from Swat – the police also arrested Khan’s mother, brother and fiancĂ©e, CNN reported.
A senior official told CNN that the suspect’s relatives were not accused of involvement.
The official did clarify Khan’s role in the shooting.
Malala had come under attack when she was on her way home from school. The Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) spokesperson Eshanullah Ehsan had claimed that the militant group was behind the attack.


Biden decides to crack funny with the father of murdered Navy Seal member, Tyrone Woods. Dad is insulted. No apologies from Biden or Obama.

The father of one of the former Navy SEALs killed in the terrorist attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya says President Barack Obama wouldn't even look him in the eye and Vice President Joe Biden was disrespectful during the ceremony when his son’s body returned to America. He also says the White House’s story on the attack doesn't pass the smell test.
Charles Woods, father of Tyrone Woods, called into “The Glenn Beck Program” on TheBlazeTV Thursday and recounted his interactions with the president, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Biden at the ceremony for the Libya victims at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland. He told host Glenn Beck that what they told him, coupled with new reports that indicate the Obama administration knew very good and well, almost immediately, that a terrorist attack was occurring in Benghazi, make him certain that the American people are not getting the whole truth.
Vice President Biden, as he has become known to do, reportedly made a wildly inappropriate comment to the father who had just lost his hero son.
Woods said Biden came over to his family and asked in a “loud and boisterous” voice, “Did your son always have balls the size of cue balls ?”

“Are these the words of someone who is sorry?” said Woods.

Colin Powell surprises no one except those in the real military and endorses B Obama. Understand that Obama's rules of engagement have allowed for the deaths of 19 Navy Seal Team members and hundreds of soldiers in Afghanistan. Powell proves that he couldn't care less.

Planned Parenthood loses. Its not about free speech so much as it is about our tax dollars.

(Reuters) – A federal appeals court declined on Thursday to reconsider a ruling that would allow Texas to withhold funding for women’s healthcare from Planned Parenthood’s clinics because the organization also performs abortions.

Texas Governor Rick Perry said after the order by the Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in New Orleans that the state would immediately stop paying program participants that are affiliates of abortion providers.

“Today’s ruling affirms yet again that in Texas the Women’s Health Program has no obligation to fund Planned Parenthood and other organizations that perform or promote abortion,” the Republican governor said in a statement. “In Texas we choose life, and we will immediately begin defunding all abortion affiliates to honor and uphold that choice.”

A three-judge panel of the appeals court ruled in August that Texas may exclude groups affiliated with abortion providers from the Women’s Health Program, which provides cancer screenings, birth control and other health services to more than 100,000 low-income Texas women.

In a filing with the court in September, Planned Parenthood asked the full court to rehear the matter, saying the rule violates its First Amendment rights to speech and association.

Planned Parenthood said on Thursday that further consideration by the full court was needed to protect women’s access to preventive health care like breast and cervical cancer screenings and birth control.

The UN is attempting to help control the outcome of the coming election.

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott,  on Tuesday,  has sent a letter to the OSCE (an United Nations organization in charge of voter fraud, world wide) warning the organization that its representatives “are not authorized by Texas law to enter a polling place” and that it “may be a criminal offense for OSCE’s representatives to maintain a presence within 100 feet of a polling place’s entrance.”  

What most people do not know is that Obama invited these clowns into the fray.   A second term will see much more of his one world agenda.  

The world believes that religion is a curse (oh,  yes it does  --  show me one nation other than the US that honors people of faith in a democratic setting).  The world believes that wealth belongs to all of its citizens,  equally,  whether they work for it or not and,  taxation,  whether it be due to legislation or regulation,  is the avenue used for the redistribution of wealth.  

Everything that has been a troubling part of the American politic over the course of the past four years has to do with  the two above stated considerations. 

Be afraid.  Be very afraid.
