Every day, you hear “black lives matter” from all media: TV, Twitter, Facebook, etc. Whites and blacks alike are wearing “black lives matter” tee shirts. To me, all lives matter!
What’s not being reported is that there are much more black-on-white crimes being committed in this country, but the only story that was broadcasted 24/7 was the one horrific white-on-black crime against a mostly black community in Charleston, SC where a white, 21-year old racist / terrorist, Dylann Roof, opened fire and killed nine innocent black parishioners during a prayer meeting in Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church on June 17, 2015. I cried when I heard about this senseless, vicious crime because they did nothing to incite this vicious hate crime that Roof committed. Of course, what happened in South Carolina was an atrocity, and the whole country came together and mourned the senseless loss of beautiful lives lost at the hands of that despicable racist / terrorist pig. There wasn’t even one white person who celebrated that horrific tragedy.
However, just this past weekend, in Cincinnati, a white guy was viciously attacked and beaten unconscious by black thugs after a “hip hop” concert, and the attack was celebrated by some in a mostly black crowd. There was absolutely no public outcry from the black community on this senseless vicious act of violence from blacks on an innocent white guy who did nothing to incite this vicious hate crime. Apparently, “hate crimes” and “racism” are one-way streets in America.
One of the saddest part of all is that in infrequent white-on-black crimes, you always know the name of the black “victim”. In this story, I couldn’t find his name anywhere online, but when I do, I will post it here…
A video posted Sunday shows the bloodied victim of a racial attack in Cincinnati during a race riot in Fountain Square on Saturday night.
The white man was beaten unconscious following a hip hop and electronica Fourth of July concert.
The video shows a mostly black crowd gathered around the white male victim laid out on the sidewalk. A few are trying to help the unconscious man while others squeal in awe at the blood covering his head.
Many onlookers are laughing. One voice can be heard asking for someone to call 911. (Warning on Language-Violence)
A report by a police officer posted online stated that police had to rescue the white male from an attacking mob consisting of about 40 black out-of-control thugs…

Fireworks, rocks, bottles and punches were thrown at Cincinnati police by a mob of people gathered for a Fourth of July hip hop and electronica concert late Saturday night. Several officers were wounded including one who needed stitches after a thrown glass bottle struck him in the face. Another officer was punched and received a split lip.
According to one report, police had to rescue a white man being attacked by about forty Black people.
The Cincinnati Enquirer detailed two of the arrests:
“Jy Quynn Britten, 21, punched a peace officer in the face while officers tried to arrest another person, according to court documents.
“Britten then ran from officers through Fountain Square before being Tased and arrested.
“As arrests were made, an officer told a bystander operating a camera, “Hey, when you’re shooting that video make sure you get the officer with the busted lip.”
“Britten is accused of assault, resisting arrest, and obstructing official business.”
…”Gary Sheffield, 29, was arrested in the 500 block of Walnut Street near Fountain Square for misconduct at an emergency, according to court documents.
“Police said Sheffield refused to obey orders and screamed at officers.”

WCPO-TV reported seven people were arrested including three juveniles.
WKRC-TV reported one man attacked by the mob was found motionless on a sidewalk.
The alleged details of the beating of the victim were told by a police officer in an anonymous online statement reported by the website Cincinnati Vs. Everyone:
“So after my 4th of July night from hell I thought I would post the truth as to what went on last night in Downtown Cincinnati. Many news outlets although they were there will fail to report…The Truth. The truth is I’m sitting in the district catching up on reports when an officer needs assistance comes out over the radio on Fountain Square. My partner and I scream down there to help out. I get down there to see glass bottles flying everywhere from a mob of out of control misguided youths. Okay that was a nice way of saying a bunch of thug idiots.
They thought it would be appropriate to throw these bottles at police officers. While dodging these bottles I found one officer that was actually punched in the face by one of these assholes. Luckily he was apprehended. This was just getting started.
We were trying to keep everyone under control and push everyone into one area to get them off of Fountain Square. So then is when the crowd got even further crazy, they began throwing large fireworks at us. While trying to figure out if fireworks or gunshots, usually you could tell, but we weren’t taking any chances. I look down 5th st to see a few of my brothers and sisters trying to apprehend an individual and begin chasing him. I immediately give chase and even though I’m getting a little older still catch the guy and he gets the 5 second taser ride. This seems easy enough right…well now we’ve got the whole crowd bearing down on us all with their phones out video taping…or throwing stuff at us. (Later found out that this guy also punched a police officer in the face)
We get this guy in custody, and it’s the second year in a row I have a tasing in this area on July 4th…guess it’s just not my day. So then we form into riot formation with helmets on and begin passing out the shields. Honestly this was the first time I got to partake in this. So we see ahead a scuffle begin and think it’s just a fight. Well not so much, it was like 40 v. 1. I saw 40 v. 1, it was 40 black youths stomping the crap out of one unlucky male white. He didn’t do anything to deserve this beating except be white. I’m going to skip all the rhetoric and just say don’t we all matter??? This just pissed us all off. Time to rescue or at least try to get these thugs off of him. So we were sent in with shields and arrest team to do a victim rescue. Feel bad for the guy since he nor anyone deserved a beat down like that for no reason. The next hour or so was just getting these assholes out of the area and back to where they came from. I hope every one of the people who threw a bottle, fired a handgun, threw fireworks at us, and most importantly beat that poor guy within inches of his life get what they deserve…in this life or the next.
To make matters worse it was like a perfect storm with the Reds game getting let out at the same time we were for a lack of a better phrase, being attacked. I saw little kids holding their parents hands and parents looking at us like what the hell is going on? They had no clue what was going down nor should they have to expect seeing what they saw.”
The officer ended his statement with a plea for unity:
“I felt like I had to tell the truth and get the word out there from one of the men on the front line. We as an American Society and Cincinnatians need to get our (act) together because these types of interactions are going to increase. I say it again, this stuff is increasing not only here at home but across the country. We need to come together and fight back.”

Black city councilman breaks the silence on black on white crime
Read Full Post
Black on white violence in Cleveland is no secret. But everyone pretends it is.
Black city councilman Zack Reed has broken the silence:
“[Public Square] is ground zero on St. Patrick’s Day for blacks to go beat up whites,” Reed said to the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “I believe this is a hate crime because it is black folks purposefully going downtown to beat up white folks.”
Reed is talking about a recent episode of black mob violence on white people at a bus stop on St. Patrick’s Day in the part of downtown known as Public Square. A local television station broke the story of the violence, and broadcast the video.
On it, large groups of black people are seen attacking white people at a bus stop. When the police arrived, the predators scattered. When police left, predators returned within 90 seconds to resume their assault on the downtown tourists, students and office workers.
At least six people were attacked for what the local reporter said happened for “no apparent reason.”
But three weeks after the black on white beatings, the Plain-Dealer revealed — acknowledged is probably a better word — that “years of unchecked beatings on and around Public Square following the city’s St. Patrick’s Day parades” is a regular event.
And the black on white part? The part where going downtown to beat up white people is a sport event for some black people in Cleveland?
That was buried in the final four paragraphs of the story.
Now city officials are promising next St. Patrick’s Day will be different. Downtown will be safe from roving bands of black people looking for soft, white and Asian targets.
But some locals are wondering what the city is going to do about the other 364 days in the year, when black mob violence and black on white crime is just as frequent.
A few days after St. Patrick’s Day in the Cleveland suburb of Garfield Heights, The Plain Dealer reported a “man was walking down the street when the group of teenagers approached him from behind. Two of the teenagers pushed him to the ground, causing him to hit his face on the pavement, according to a police report. The entire group then began punching and kicking him. “
The “teenagers” were black. The victim, white. But several readers in the comments section of the news story rushed to assure the locals that race had nothing to do with that attack. Or many others just like it.
On January 2 at the Valley View Cinemark in a suburb of Cleveland, a massive disturbance from black people forced managers to stop the showing of ‘The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death’300’ and ask everyone to leave. Soon after, “some of the juveniles were climbing over the food service counters in the theater lobby; theater security and management threw them out and locked the doors,” said the local Fox affiliate.
But the party was just beginning: “Once the juveniles were outside, police said numerous fights broke out in the parking lot and near two restaurants — Oak Barrel and Quaker Steak & Lube — right near the theater. According to Chief March, the “fights were very widespread (with) a lot of pushing, shoving, screaming and shouting.”
Police told restaurants to lock their doors to keep the horde of hundreds of black people out. For the neighboring Oak Barrel restaurant, it was already too late. “They came into the restaurant itself and a lot of customers were kind of scared,” one restaurant employee told Fox 8 news in Cleveland. “They were threatening employees, they were threatening me and some customers.”
In February 2014, also near the Public Square, a black mob attacked a disabled army veteran. They first saw him on a bus, then followed him when he left it. They kicked him, punched him, and knocked him down — all the while saying ‘Knock that boy out! White boy. Cracker. Knock that white boy out.’
One TV reporter at Channel 19 said thugs and “teen mobs” do that a lot in Cleveland near Public Square, but curiously, a search of his station’s web site failed to turn up even one report on it.
Black mob violence has also marred for several years the Fourth of July celebrations in the Cleveland suburb of Bedford. Almost none of which made its way to the local media. But the city council heard an earful from local residents following 2012’s holiday violence.
They reported that 50 to 80 black people were hitting people in the face and disrupting the festival and surrounding areas. “Police officers used pepper ball pellets and a taser,” said city council minutes from a Special Meeting in August 2012. “Even the Wal-Mart and Get-Go store had to be closed for three hours.”
Closing the Wal-Mart is DefCon 5.
“The Mayor was shocked by what he had witnessed,” said the minutes. The mayor assured the audience that Bedford was “not the only city that had these types of problems.” People were “traveling from city to city just causing problems.”
It was no problem for the local press: They just ignored it.
Lots of those cities and holiday riots are documented in that scintillating best-seller Don’t Make the Black Kids Angry.
Because Bedford no longer has a daily newspaper, the city sent out a “Code Red” message warning residents of the violence and lawlessness that was “out of control” at their event. Three surrounding police agencies were called in to quell the violence.
The fire chief said his people were not armed or trained for this kind of activity.
Some of the residents complained of “political correctness” that prevented them from talking about what really happened. City manager Henry Angelo did not deny that black mobs were responsible for the violence. But he did say it was contemptuous that anyone would notice.
Such as your humble correspondent. I get that a lot. I do not care.
Another Cleveland suburb, Shaker Heights, also cancelled the Fourth of July fireworks: “There have been problems in maintaining order and dealing with huge numbers of young people who have shown up through social media at the fireworks and who have been disruptive,” said Mayor Earl Leiken to the Shaker Heights Patch.
This is a long list: Black mob violence in Cleveland schools? Plenty of it.
Black mob violence against gay people in Cleveland? Plenty of that too, though the gay press is loath to say so.
Councilman Reed is not the first black city councilman in Cleveland to call for greater action against black mob violence. That honor goes to former Councilman Eugene Miller when, in June, 2013, the councilman dialed 911 because 100 to 200 “sorry ass” black people were rioting in front of his house. “I’m sick of this,” he told the emergency dispatcher in a series of increasingly irate phone calls. “I need the police over here immediately,” he said. “People are going to have to go to jail tonight. I got about 100 sorry ass black kids out here acting the fool. In front of my damn house and I’m sick of this.”
“Nobody should have to live through this shit.”
Colin Flaherty is author of Don’t Make the Black Kids Angry, which documents how Cleveland, as bad as it is, is just about average for black on white crime.

“Those who won our independence believed that the final end of the state was to make men free to develop their faculties; and that in its government the deliberative forces should prevail over the arbitrary. They valued liberty both as an end and as a means. They believed liberty to be the secret of happiness and courage to be the secret of liberty. They believed that freedom to think as you will and to speak as you think are means indispensable to the discovery and spread of political truth; that without free speech and assembly discussion would be futile; that with them, discussion affords ordinarily adequate protection against the dissemination of noxious doctrine; that the greatest menace to freedom is an inert people; that public discussion is a political duty; and that this should be a fundamental principle of the American government.”
― Louis D. Brandeis
Mr. Brandeis is correct—unmotivated or lazy people, both American-born and immigrants coming to this country, truly are the greatest menace to our liberties and freedoms. Legal immigrants who want to assimilate are an asset to America, while those coming here illegally are breaking our laws from the start, and most have been proven to continue breaking our laws the longer they’re here. Liberals and Progressives have demonstrated time and time again that they don’t want to have a discussion with people who oppose their views. They want to “coexist”, but only on their terms. Diversity and tolerance is, apparently, a one-way street.
Ann Coulter, who’s no stranger to controversy, was invited to interview with Jorge Ramos to promote her new book entitled, “¡Adios, America! The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hellhole”.
Discussing illegal immigration is a touchy subject, but I agree 100% with Coulter. America is losing its identity because many are so focused on preserving other cultures, we’re losing our own. Are Americans fleeing to other countries? No! Why not? Because we love this country and everything it stands for. Why are millions of illegal aliens coming to America? Some come here to seek a better life for their families while most are here for a free ride. I’m not against legal immigration; I’m against illegal aliens coming into this country seeking to change it into their country. If they can’t assimilate into the American culture by learning to speak our language—English—and find a means to support themselves instead of relying on the American taxpayers to support them and all the kids they create, they should leave this country and return to the country they came from. Every time I drive into a parking garage and see the signs in Spanish, and in English underneath, I find it extremely distressing. It’s getting so that Americans have no say in our own country. Coulter is the only person with the balls to stand up for what’s right, not what’s Left.
In the video below, Ramos and Coulter exchanged pleasantries then Coulter quickly gives him a big dose of conservative reality that wasn’t too well-received.
I’ll be picking up a copy of Coulter’s new book when it debuts on Monday, especially after reading some of the excerpts (from Coulter’s site). Here’s a few of the disturbing facts she reveals from her book—most of which aren’t too well-known, I’m sure…
—Teddy Kennedy’s 1965 Immigration Act was expressly designed to change the demographics of our country to be poorer and more inclined to vote Democratic.
—It worked! Post-1970 immigrants vote 8-2 for the Democrats.
—Citing this dramatic shift in the Democratic Party’s fortunes, Democratic consultant Patrick Reddy called the 1965 Immigration Act “the Kennedy family’s greatest gift to the Democratic Party.”
—Immigrants admitted before 1970 made more money, bought more houses and were more educated than Americans. The post-Kennedy immigrants are astronomically less-educated, poorer and more likely to be on welfare than the native population.
—With no welfare state to support them, about a third of pre-1965 Act immigrants returned to the places they came from. British and Jewish immigrants were the least likely to go home—less than 10 percent did.
—Although America is admitting more immigrants, they are coming from fewer countries than they did before 1970. On liberals’ own terms, the country is becoming less “diverse,” but a lot poorer and a lot more Latin.
—America has already taken in one-fourth of Mexico’s entire population.
—In 1970, there were almost no Nigerian immigrants in the United States. Our country is now home to more Nigerians than any country in the world except Nigeria.
—America takes more immigrants from Nigeria than from England.
—The government refuses to tell us how many prisoners in the United States are immigrants. That information is not available anywhere. But the ancillary facts suggest that the number is astronomical.
—There are more foreign inmates in New York state prisons from Mexico than from the entire continent of Europe.
—Hispanics are less likely to be in the military than either whites or blacks, and a majority of Hispanic troops are women. On the other hand, Hispanics are overrepresented in U.S. Prisons.
—In Denmark, actual Danes come in tenth in criminals’ nationality, after Moroccans, Lebanese, Yugoslavians, Somalis, Iranians, Pakistanis, Turks, Iraqis and Vietnamese.
—At least 15 percent of all births in Peru and Argentina are to girls between the ages of 10 and 15. In the U.S., only 2 percent of births are to girls that young, and those are mostly Hispanics, who are seven times more likely to give birth at that age than white girls are.
—Sex with girls as young as 12 years old is legal in 31 of the 32 states of Mexico.
—In all of Western Europe, the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Israel combined, there have been eight reported births to girls aged 10 or younger. Seven of the eight were impregnated by immigrants.
—In some areas of America, law enforcement authorities have given up on prosecuting statutory rape cases against Mexican men in their 30s who impregnate 12- and 13-year-old girls, after repeatedly encountering parents who view their little girls’ pregnancies as a “blessing.”
—The same North Carolina newspapers that gave flood-the-zone coverage to a rape that never happened at a Duke lacrosse party completely ignore real rapes happening right under their noses, being committed against children by immigrants providing cheap labor to the state’s farming and meat-packing industries.
—Since 2004, Mexicans have beheaded at least a half-dozen people in the United States.
—Mexican drug cartels—not ISIS—pioneered the practice of posting videotaped beheadings online.
—An alleged “ISIS” beheading video making the rounds in 2014 was actually a Mexican beheading video from 2010.
—Post-1970 immigrants have re-introduced slavery to America. Indian immigrant Lakireddy Bali Reddy, for example, used the H1-B visa program, allegedly for “high-tech workers,” to bring in 12-year-old girls he had bought from their parents for sex.
—The above story was missed by the San Francisco Chronicle. It was broken by a high school journalism class.
—The ACLU took Reddy’s side.
—We’re still letting in Hmong immigrants as a reward for their help with the ill-fated Vietnam War, which ended 40 years ago.
—Between 2000 and 2005, nearly 100 Hmong men were charged with rape or forced prostitution of girls in Minneapolis-St Paul, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. The vast majority of the victims were 15 years old or younger. A quarter of the victims were not Hmong.
—Proponents of the 1965 immigration bill swore up and down that it would not alter this country’s demographic mix. In fact, Kennedy’s immigration policy has brought about the greatest demographic shift of any nation in world history.
—In 1980, Reagan won the biggest electoral landslide in history against an incumbent president, Jimmy Carter. Without the last 40 years of immigration, in 2012, Mitt Romney would have won a bigger landslide than Reagan did. He got more of the “Reagan coalition” than Reagan did.
—If Romney had won 71 percent of the Hispanic vote, he still would have lost. If he’d gotten just 4 percent more of the white vote, he would have won.
Adios, America! In bookstores next Monday, June 1.

“Voting is the best revenge.”
Yes, it is, and with everything the American people know about Obama and his equally disgusting corrupt crew, you can bet we’ll be revenge-voting against him and his evil establishment in 2014, hopefully starting with Obama’s impeachment proceedings.
Valerie Jarrett really is pure evil, and she is Obama’s confidante. What does that tell you about Obama? I guess birds of a feather really do flock together. I have been stating from Day 1 that Obama and his corrupt crew are evil, along with others who saw right through him, yet all those low information voters elected him anyway…twice! All those idiots who stayed home instead of voting for the more-than-capable Mitt Romney are equally to blame for the downfall that is happening in this country.
American Pulitzer Prize-winning syndicated columnist and political commentator Dr. Charles Krauthammer, whom I highly respect, stated very intuitively on a recent episode of The O’Reilly Factor…
“The ‘biggest scandal of all’ regarding that Benghazi slaughter has yet to emerge. I think there is a bigger story here that will, in time, come out.”
—Dr. Charles Krauthammer
He was right; the time is now; it has finally come out…
Jarrett called off three attacks on Osama bin Laden, which she did purely for political gain—for Obama. You see, she didn’t want anything standing in the way of Obama being reelected if the attacks didn’t go as planned. But Obama, being the tyrannical peacock who can’t stop strutting his plumes around the country, insisted “he got Osama”. He didn’t get Osama—Seal Team 6 got Osama. Not only is Obama a flamboyant liar, he’s also a coward hiding behind colorful feathers and a mask that is starting to disappear. He hides behind his administration, he hides behind George W. Bush, and he hides behind the Republicans, all the while blaming them for his failures. Because of him, the respect that America rightfully earned throughout the years is slowly dwindling because of his tyrannical rule, his reckless actions, and also his many inactions. If he remains in office, we will lose the fight against evil, and we will lose our freedoms.
“Those who are capable of tyranny are capable of perjury to sustain it.”
― Lysander Spooner
Obama claims “Osama is dead and al Qaeda is on the run”. What I see is al Qaeda thriving, and he wants America on the run. This is not the America I have known all my life nor is this a message that I’ve gotten from any other president who has held office that I know of. The America I know and love never gives up, no matter what. True grit is what made America the “Shining City Upon The Hill”, but Obama is doing whatever it takes to snuff out that light—God’s Light. What is it going to take to get rid of the evil infestation that is trying to get a stronghold on America and our freedoms? Not only do we have to deal with terrorists who want to extinguish America; now we also have to deal with a tyrannical administration that wants to take it down as well—brick by brick so as not to be conspicuous.
I’m not calling the Obama administration terrorists, but it appears that they are so focused on destroying our economy and our way of life that it makes one wonder if they’re doing it intentionally or if they’re just a bunch of clueless idiots. Every day, it’s another scandal, yet he wrongly dismisses them all, and most people believe him! I just don’t get it. He claims they’re all “fake scandals”, but even an idiot can see these scandals are real. The only “fake” I see is the guy who stole the White House with the help of voter fraud. Everything about him is fake, except his agenda to destroy America and anyone who gets in the way of accomplishing his devious goals. As far as I can see, he only told the truth once…when he claimed that “We’re five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”
Will you low information voters please stop focusing on the faux smiling object that has invaded the White House and please start focusing on what’s really going on in this country. People have no excuse to be so uninformed or misinformed with the truth right at their fingertips. Stop listening to the Alphabet News of treason and start listening to the voices of reason! All you have to do is look at the bottom of my site, QueenBeeWorld, where I put links to various sites where you can arm yourself with facts instead of fiction about what’s really going on in this country. There are countless other sites that try and bring us the truth if you’re willing to look for them.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve had it with him, Jarrett and the rest of this useless do-nothing administration. We need to let Jarrett know that Americans don’t forget either, and that now it is her time to go.
People who voted for Obama believed his lying words about bringing America together. Instead, in five years, he has divided this great nation to such an extent that it’s disgustingly tragic. It’s now up to us whether or not we let him accomplish his goals further. It’s time for America to unite with one another instead of fight with one another, which is what Obama is betting on. Do we really want a tyrannical government invading every aspect of our lives or do we want to keep our freedoms as Americans that so many have fought for, and many have lost their lives for? In their honor and in their memory, we should also fight for the greatest country on the face of this earth—America! After all, we’re still the United States Of America, aren’t we? Remember: United We Stand; Divided We Fall. We’d be wise to always remember that…
Valerie Jarrett Gave Benghazi Stand-Down Order

Scandal: The omnipresent power behind the throne some have called the president’s Rasputin had the power to call off three strikes against Osama bin Laden. She may have used that power again the night four Americans died in Benghazi.
The Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack on our diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, came while America failed to mount a rescue mission despite sufficient time and assets. Included in that disaster were the unaccounted whereabouts of President Obama during eight critical hours, the lack of Situation Room photos, the failure by the president to follow up with subordinates before his trip to Las Vegas and the fabricated story that the whole thing was prompted by an Internet video.
Columnist Charles Krauthammer said recently on “The O’Reilly Factor” that the “biggest scandal of all” regarding that Benghazi slaughter has yet to emerge.
“I think there is a bigger story here … that will in time come out,” Krauthammer said. “The biggest scandal of all, the biggest question is: What was the president doing in those eight hours?”
The columnist noted: “He had a routine meeting at 5 o’clock. He never after, during the eight hours when our guys have their lives in danger, he never called the secretary of defense, he never calls the chairman of the Joint Chiefs, he never calls the CIA director.”
One of the people Obama always talks to is Valerie Jarrett. She emerged from the same Chicago cauldron of radicalism where Obama got his ideological baptism.
The Iranian-born Jarrett (her parents were American-born expatriates) is the only staff member who regularly follows the president home from the West Wing to the residence and one of the few people allowed to call the president by his first name.
Her influence is shown by an account in Richard Miniter’s book “Leading From Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors Who Decide for Him.”
It relates that at the urging of Jarrett, Obama canceled the operation to kill Osama bin Laden three times before approving the Navy SEAL mission in Pakistan on May 2, 2011. Seems she was concerned about political harm to Obama if the mission failed.
Miniter writes that the president canceled the kill mission in January 2011, again in February and a third time in March, in each instance at the urging of Jarrett. Miniter cites a source within the Joint Special Operations Command who had direct knowledge of the operation and its planning.

My husband and I watched Sunday’s episode of “The Bible” and were shocked that Obama is the spawning image of the devil in “The Bible”, played by Moroccan actor, Mehdi Ouzaani. Talk about art imitating life. People are saying this is just a coincidence. I don’t believe in coincidences…
Why does the devil in ‘The Bible’ look exactly like President Obama?
From Does the Bible say What the Devil, Satan, or Demons look like?…
In Hebrew, the name Satan means “the accuser”. And the Bible describes him as the accuser of the brethren or the saints of God in Revelation 12:10, “For the accuser of our brothers and sisters, who accuses them before our God day and night.” The Devil is sometimes, shockingly, behind a pulpit and spewing forth false gospels as he appears as an angel of light, yet he is the father of lies (2 Cor. 11:14).

I’ve been watching “The Bible” and am in awe of its magnificence. It’s very well done, but what I didn’t know is that strange things happened on the set during the filming of “The Bible”. Here is the true account from the producer of the Series, Mark Burnett, of the goings on while filming.
At the end of this article, it states…
“Whether or not you believe these were on-set miracles or just mere coincidences…”
As you may know, I don’t believe in coincidences…

From Inside TV…
Mark Burnett says ‘weird things happened’ on ‘The Bible’ set
by Grady Smith
Image Credit: Lightworkers Media/Hearst Productions
Last Sunday, the first installment of History’s five-part miniseries The Bible beat everything on television with a massive 13.1 million viewers, making it cable’s most-watched entertainment telecast this year.
For producer Mark Burnett, who worked on the ten-hour special with wife Roma Downey, the success of The Bible isn’t all that surprising. “It will be, over the next 40 or 50 years, the most watched thing that Roma and I have ever made,” he told EW, quite confidently, back in January.
At the time, Burnett gushed about shooting the series. “I really believe what I’m going to tell you right now,” he said. “The hand of God was on this…. the edit came together perfectly, the actors came together perfectly, it just comes to life.” But Burnett wasn’t just speaking about how well the practicalities of production had gone. “Weird things happened during filming,” he said. “Everybody would look at each other like, “Whoa.”
Here are a few of the “weird things” he was talking about:
A mighty desert wind “There’s a scene with Jesus and Nicodemus, when Nicodemus comes to Jesus in the night. It’s a very still night, not a breath of wind, and we’re on the edge of the Sahara desert in a palm grove in an oasis… Jesus says, ‘The Holy Spirit is like the wind.’ At that moment, a wind, like as if a 747 was taking off, blew his hair, almost blew the set over and sustained for 20 seconds across the desert, and the actors didn’t break — they kept going. And everything stopped. Everyone just looked at everyone like, ‘What just happened?’”
The missing frock “We had hundreds of craftsmen working [on making costumes], and the most important costume was Jesus’ costume. Every time, at the end of the day, the costume’s got to be taken away to be maintained. So when we were doing the baptism scenes, it’s completely immersed in water. During it, a portion of the costume came away. We shot this in a giant reservoir on the edge of the Sahara desert, so we’re never going to find this again. It’s really bad. Every time you lose something, you’ve got five months ahead, and you can’t replicate these costumes. Four days later, a kid showed up from many, many, many miles away, who had been seeking us through the desert to return this to us. He didn’t know what it was why he should seek us, but he felt he had to return it.”
Cobras at the cross “We had a snake wrangler every day on the set. I mean, we’ve got a couple hundred people shooting, and we can’t afford to have people getting bitten by snakes. Every day, this guy would find a snake or maybe two snakes, and remove them. On the day of the crucifixion, a lot of people prayed. The cross was a huge thing. They prayed [for safety], ‘Imagine if this cross fell. The actor playing Jesus could be killed or badly injured.’ The snake man came to work that day — he’d gotten there early on the mountain playing Golgotha, and the bag of snakes [he was carrying] was the biggest bag I’d ever seen. He came to my wife and said, ‘Miss Roma, there were 48 snakes.’ He found 48 cobras and vipers hidden within the rocks around the cross.”
Whether or not you believe these were on-set miracles or just mere coincidences, one thing is certain — The Bible’s ratings are , in fact, pretty divine.

Moses receives the Ten Commandments.
The History Channel has outdone itself with “The Bible”, a new 10-part docudrama mini-series that tells some stories from The Holy Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. Sunday’s premier episode shows powerful re-enactments and engaging cinematography that depicts God’s wrath on sin by flooding Earth, Abraham proving his faith in God, and Moses leading the Israelites on their escape from Egypt and delivering the Ten Commandments. “The Bible” Series Intro and Trailer Videos are at the end of this post.
The series was created by Mark Burnett, and co-produced by and co-stars Roma Downey, one of the very few actresses I admire, and who co-starred on the TV show “Touched By An Angel”, an old show from the 90s that I’ve been hooked on since I first watched last year.
The premier 2-hour episode, “In The Beginning / Exodus” starts this Sunday, March 3, 2013 at 8-10 PM EST, and continues airing through until Easter Sunday. Here is the scheduled airings for the premier 2-hour episode…

Paul the Apostle Full Movie Bible Movie
This religious subject matter is so revered by most of America that Hollywood wants to cash in on it so they’re in the process of working on “Noah” and a movie centering on Pontius Pilate. They’re desperate because the trash they’ve been putting out and calling “movies” isn’t bringing in the money they require so their high-paid pampered pests will show up. Little do they know their brand of subject matter doesn’t hold a candle to the thirst America has for God Almighty and all the goodness He has brought to this great country of ours. Our job as Americans is to make sure that it stays that way…

Tonight’s premier of “Killing Lincoln” on the National Geographic Channel (based on Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly’s best-selling book, co-authored by Martin Dugard) is a riveting account of President Abraham Lincoln’s last days (Happy Belated Birthday, President Lincoln). I am such a big fan of President Abraham Lincoln that I’ll be watching / recording all three President Lincoln-themed movies tonight. In the New York Times’ story, they also mention the other two movies airing tonight as a “Lincoln Trifecta”…
“…for anyone who can’t get enough of the 16th president, on Sunday it will be possible to arrange a Lincoln trifecta, seeing “Lincoln,” Salvador Litvak’s new film; “Saving Lincoln” (about the president’s bodyguard); and “Killing Lincoln” in a single day…”

I just came across a site that has everything about Obama, from his birth in 1961 right up until November 2, 2012, all researched, all true. This site can be accessed via www.theobamatimeline.com or www.colony14.net. This information (1961 through Obama’s first 100 days) is also in a book entitled, “The Obama Timeline” by Don Fredrick.
Please pass this on to as many people as you can. People need to open their eyes and see Obama as he really is before they cast their vote on November 6th. We have to vote this narcissist out of office before he does any more damage. This site also has a wealth of relevant topics listed on the left side. Here is a sampling of the true important info you’ll find there…
The Obama Timeline: Part I (08-04-61 through his first 100 days)
Day 101 Through 11-02-12…
The Obama Timeline II – April 2009 to Present
Here’s the entry from November 2012 (from Day 101 Through 11-02-12). Links to all the other months are listed below under November 2012. Educate yourself for this very important election…
At the end of my post here, I added an Obamericks from this site: “There once was a man named Obama…” that’s a funny must-read, even though Obama is far from being a man. To me, he’s just some idiot guy in the White House…
The Obama Timeline – Part II
The Doomed Presidency
On November 1 DailyCaller.com reports, “Two women from the Dominican Republic told The Daily Caller that Democratic New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez paid them for sex earlier this year. In interviews, the two women said they met Menendez around Easter at Casa de Campo, an expensive 7,000 acre resort in the Dominican Republic. They claimed Menendez agreed to pay them $500 for sex acts, but in the end they each received only $100. …It is known that Sen. Menendez has been a regular visitor to the Dominican Republic. On at least one occasion, according to a news account, Menendez has been a guest at the Casa de Campo home of a friend and campaign donor named Salomon Melgen, an ophthalmologist and owner of an eye clinic in Florida.” (Whether the last-minute revelation could cost Menendez the election on November 6 is unknown; he has a double-digit lead over his Republican challenger, Joe Kyrillos.) [39548, 39549, 39550, 39556, 39558, 39592]
According to Gawker.com, a former neighbor who used to live in the Washington, D.C. apartment under Menendez’s, “…he would bring home a different young, attractive lady almost every night, put on a little jazz, and f**k loudly until 3 a.m. ‘We lived below him. …It was outrageous. When it started, we thought it was a one-time thing. But it went on for months—ours and hours of headbanging sex.’ When the Senate was in session, the former neighbor said, Menendez would usually stay at the DC apartment on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings—on weekends, Mondays, and Fridays, he would go back to his New Jersey home. Of those three weeknights, the neighbor said, Menendez usually spent at least two with a constantly rotating gallery of attractive, young, and loud women. …Without fail, the neighbor said, these women would leave Menendez’s apartment at 3 a.m. and get in a cab. ‘My wife would be up because of the noise, and she’d watch them out the window,’ the neighbor said. ‘They were always in like four-inch heels, and it was definitely a different one every time. Different women on back-to-back nights. These were very young, very attractive women.’” 
An NBC/WSJ/Marist poll shows Obama leading Mitt Romney in Iowa 50–44. The poll’s D/R/I is 34/31/34. (Turnout in the 2010 mid-term elections in Iowa was 31/35/34.) In Wisconsin, the poll shows Obama leading Romney 49–46. The D/R/I is 34/29/35. (In the recall election for Governor Scott Walker, the turnout was 34/35/31.) Obama leads in New Hampshire, 49–47, with a 27/26/47 D/R/I. In a University of Iowa poll of likely voters, Romney leads Obama 45–44. (In all the polls Obama’s support among independent voters is way off his 2008 numbers.) [39553, 39554, 39555]
Obama leads Romney 49–46 in a Public Policy Polling survey in Virginia—but the D/R/I is an absurd 43/36/22. (The 2008 turnout in Virginia was 39/33/27.) HotAir.com’s Ed Morrissey writes, “If an incumbent Obama can’t get to 50% in a poll where 43% of the respondents are Democrats in a state where the federal government provides as much of the economy as it does in Virginia, I’d say Obama won’t win the state on Tuesday.) 
At TheBlaze.com Charles C. Johnson speculates that Obama was admitted into Occidental College in Los Angeles as the result of its affirmative action program because he reportedly has less than stellar grades at Punahou School in Honolulu. At the time Obama entered Occidental, the school was setting aside about 33 percent of its financial aid for “Black and Chicano students, who comprise[d] 10.2% of the student body.” According to Johnson, “Associate Dean of Students Yolanda Garcia suggested that the college had been race-norming, or adjusting scores on standardized test to have separate curves for different racial groups.” 
MoneyNews.com reports, “The number of planned layoffs by U.S. firms jumped 41.1 percent in October to the highest level in five months, although the number includes more than 10,000 jobs in U.S.-owned auto plants in Europe, a report said on Thursday. Employers announced 47,724 planned job cuts last month, up from September’s 33,816, according to the report from consultants Challenger, Gray & Christmas. It was the highest level since May.” 
The Ulsterman Report receives a message from the Wall Street insider: “Thought you would be very interested to hear of this. It appears this [Obama aide Valerie] Jarrett creature is quite confident of a victory, and has every intention of making those who opposed her, and her boy, of paying dearly for their seeming crimes against them. As Election Day is nearly upon us, more and more are willing to speak outside the inner circle. Such is the case with this message received by me this morning from a source who has been working for us via Chicago for several months now. Their campaign appears increasingly confident, I assume, due to the now adoring media coverage of their boy’s little march with the commoners following this week’s storm. It has been a revolting display by some in our media has it not? Here then is the most recent report I received our Chicago source. I first passed it along to our mutual friend with no response, so now I pass it along to you in the hopes you deem it worthy to publish as its sharing will serve a related purpose with another I hope to secure a favor from in the very near future. And if you have any concerns regarding the source—don’t. They are being thoroughly protected despite their understandable trepidation. As you have been. And while our friend was clearly upset yesterday with how the storm altered our immediate strategies that were to have concluded this final week of the campaign, I prefer to believe all is in God’s hands, and if that was to be, then so be it. My efforts remain undiminished, if not my strength. I hope you share my belief and determination in that regard. That said, there has been movement favoring Obama over the last few days. Such is the reality that we must now deal with and plan accordingly. [Neither] Crying nor profanity will assist in successfully navigating that reality.” 
“A rep from Jarrett office was in today. She gave us a finish line pep talk and then afterwards, heard her saying how Jarrett is very excited about a 2nd term agenda and a big part of that agenda is to punish everyone who opposed them during the first term and the campaign. Strange that everything was ‘Ms. Jarrett wants this, and Ms. Jarrett is looking forward to that.’ You hardly heard Obama’s name mentioned by her which I guess reinforces what people are saying. Valerie Jarrett really is the power in the White House. I know that when her representative showed up it was like royalty was visiting. All the big dogs were lined up to meet her and acting real friendly and they gave us a heads up an hour before and told us we better ‘put on a good show’ while she was here. The part that really stuck out to me was when I overheard the rep say that Jarrett told them, ‘After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.’ She was talking directly to about three of them. Sr. staff. And she wasn’t trying to be quiet about it at all. And they were all listening and shaking their heads and smiling while she said it. Pretty creepy.” 
“Why are they so confident about winning next week? We aren’t getting any numbers in the office that has any of us knowing Obama will win. It will be close. Jarrett and her people seem so confident. Why is that? Do you have any information on why she is so confident? I’m worried. Benghazi was supposed to play big this weekend. That is what everybody here was bracing for last week. You could really tell the staffers were freaking out. Now nobody is talking about it. Like it was never a concern. Like it never even happened. Don’t you have people to help with that? What happened? You said it was going to be a game changer. I told some others it would be and now I’m kind of hanging out there. Not the only one around here who got a real bad vibe after the Alex thing. Help! Need some good news after today!” (By “the Alex thing” the insider may be referring to the July 2012 death of 29-year-old campaign worker, Alex Okrent. Okrent collapsed in the Chicago campaign office and was later pronounced dead at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. According to the Chicago Tribune, Okrent “had traveled around the country and to the political heights with Obama since volunteering for his U.S. Senate primary race in 2004, but was eyeing this fall’s presidential election as the end.” Okrent’s mother, Lynn Pollak, is a leader of the anti-Israel organization, Jewish Voice for Peace. She is also linked to the Chicago Movement for Palestinian Rights, an affiliate of the terrorist-supporting CAIR. Both Alex Okrent and his sister Abigail Okrent appear on the “Jewish Self-Hating and/or Israel Threatening” (SHIT) List. Abigail Okrent is a member of Jewish Voice for Peace. The results of Okrent’s autopsy were reportedly “inconclusive”—which prompted Internet rumors that he “may have known something.”) [34396, 34397, 34398, 34399, 39570]
In New York City’s Staten Island, borough president James Molinaro tells reporters, “You know, I went to a shelter Monday night after the storm. People were coming in with no socks, with no shoes. They were in desperate need. Their housing was destroyed. They were crying. Where was the Red Cross? Isn’t that their function? They collect millions of dollars. Whenever there’s a drive in Staten Island, we give openly and honestly. Where are they? Where are they? I was at the South Shore yesterday, people were buried in their homes. There the dogs are trying to find bodies. The people there, the neighbors who had no electricity, were making soup. Making soup. It’s very emotional because the lack of a response. The lack of a response. They’re supposed to be here. …They should be on the front lines fighting, and helping the people.” State Senator Andy Lanza says, “It is as the borough president, Jim Molinaro, said, it’s disgusting, it really is. …We’re talking about getting water of the tunnel [in time for the New York City Marathon]. Let’s get the water out of the tunnel tomorrow, let’s get the people out of the water today. There’ve been thousands of people who have been displaced. There are people who are cold, who are hungry, who are without a place to go, and looking for warmth. There are people still trapped. Yet we’re talking about marathons and tunnels. I walked on the rooftop of a house yesterday, I stepped on it because the debris that surrounded it was level with the rooftop. That’s what happened here on Staten Island.” Congressman Michael Grimm adds, “I think this is an example of what infuriates people here on Staten Island. Like Senator Lanza just said, we have people, people still in water. Families displaced, families wondering where their grandparents are. Are they at a shelter? Are they at a hospital? Or are they gone? That’s what we should be focusing on. I think it would be very misguided to have this marathon. I think that the people of Staten Island will see this, unfortunately… as another shot against them, that the City Hall is more worried about getting everything running again for Manhattan and making everything look like it’s back to normal. We’re not back to normal and we’re not going to be back to normal for a long time.” 
New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg citing global warming concerns in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. 
Newsmax.com reports, “With the presidential election expected to hinge on Ohio, the state’s former secretary of state, GOP stalwart Kenneth Blackwell, is warning that a little-known change in the Buckeye State’s absentee-ballot process could lead to a ‘nightmare scenario.’ And that scenario could force the entire country to wait 10 days after the election to find out who will be the next president of the United States. …For the first time in the key swing state’s history, Blackwell says, virtually all Ohio voters this year were mailed an application for an absentee ballot. In previous elections, most Ohio voters had to request an application for an absentee ballot to receive one. The concern is that thousands of Ohio voters may complete the absentee-ballot application and receive an absentee ballot, but not bother to complete and mail in the ballot. Anyone who is sent an absentee ballot—including those who do not complete it and mail it in—and later shows up at the polls on Election Day to cast their ballot in person will be instructed to instead complete a provisional ballot. And under Ohio election law, provisional ballots cannot be opened until 10 days after an election.…As of Oct. 26, Ohio election officials had mailed out 1.3 [million] absentee ballots. Of those absentee ballots, 950,000 had been completed and mailed back in. That leaves some 350,000 absentee ballots that had been requested and sent to voters, but had not yet been received. Ohio voters who requested an absentee ballot, but did not complete it and mail it back in, will not be allowed to vote normally. Explains Blackwell: ‘So they go to the polls and say, ‘I want my ballot.’ And [poll workers] say, ‘Oh, we see you applied for an absentee ballot.’ The voter says, ‘Oh, I changed my mind.’ And they say, ‘That’s well and good, but we have to guarantee that you don’t vote twice. You have to fill out a provisional ballot.’” 
The CBS affiliate in New York City reports, “Con Edison said Thursday that it expects to ‘restore the vast majority of customers who lost power by the weekend of Nov. 10 and 11. The remaining customer restorations could take an additional week more.’” Long lines for gas form in New York and New Jersey at the stations that have electrical power and can pump the fuel. [39575, 39585, 39586]
Obama campaigns at Austin Straubel International Airport in Ashwaubenon, Wisconsin. He says, “Here’s the thing, Wisconsin, after four years… you know me by now. You may not agree with every decision I have made. You may be frustrated at the pace of change. But you know what I believe. You know where I stand.” Obama also says, “Al-Qaeda is on the run”—which would be news to the friends and families of the four Americans killed in Benghazi on September 11. [39577, 39579]
Romney campaigns in Roanoke, Virginia. He states, “I know [Obama’s] been trying to figure out some way to suggest he’s got some new ideas because with all these people out of work, with three million more women in poverty today than when he took office, with 15 more million people on food stamps than when he took office, he’s got to find something to suggest it’s gonna be better over the next four years. And so he came up with an idea last week, which is he’s gonna create the Department of Business. I don’t think adding a new chair in his cabinet will help add millions of jobs on Main Street. We don’t need a secretary of business to understand business. We need a president who understands business, and I do. …This isn’t a time for small measures. This is a time for greatness. This is a time for big change, for real change. And that’s why, just as your next senator [George Allen] said, this is a time where from day one he’s gonna make changes. I’m gonna make real changes. I’m going to get this economy going. From day one, we’re making changes.” [39577, 39581, 39582, 39583]
Michelle Obama campaigns in Daytona, Florida. According to WOFL Local reporter Mike Synan, the crowd chants, “Hail Obama!” [39584, 39590]
CBSNews.com reports that “…during the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Mission in Benghazi, the Obama Administration did not convene its top interagency counterterrorism resource: the Counterterrorism Security Group, (CSG). ‘The CSG is the one group that’s supposed to know what resources every agency has. They know of multiple options and have the ability to coordinate counterterrorism assets across all the agencies,’ a high-ranking government official told CBS News. ‘They were not allowed to do their job. They were not called upon.’” The source states, “The response process was isolated at the most senior level. My fellow counterterrorism professionals and I (were) not consulted.” 
Mitt Romney leads Obama 50–47 in a TCJ Research Wisconsin poll of likely voters. The survey’s D/R/I is 34/34/32. Romney leads among independents 55–41. 
Spectator.org reports, “Former Sen. Fred Thompson today said he was ‘totally disgusted’ by the Obama administration’s handling of the Libya terrorist attack, saying that U.S. officials failed to act ‘while our people were being systematically slaughtered’ at the Benghazi consulate. Speaking at an event sponsored by the free-market group Americans for Prosperity, the former Republican senator from Tennessee invoked his experience nearly 40 years ago as a Watergate investigator, saying that Congress must ‘get to the bottom of’ the administration’s failures in the Sept. 11 incident that left Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans dead in Libya. ‘This is probably the biggest cover-up in American history—and you’re talking to an expert in cover-ups,’ Thompson said.” 
The Ulsterman Report interviews the White House insider, and asks, “Did you read the latest update from [the Wall Street insider]?” The White House insider replies, “What he said was—it doesn’t really concern me. Don’t care what they think in Chicago now. Don’t care what that b-tch [Valerie] Jarrett is thinking. She don’t know about this stuff either. She has been wrong way more than right. She’s just… if she said that stuff… hell to pay, whatever it was. Hell, that could have been a leak-down test. See who was talking. Where the air’s comin’ out. That dumb f-ck might have just compromised our source by telling you to publish. And you should have asked me about it before you did. Not blaming you here… you’re just following his lead. But it wasn’t smart.” Ulsterman asks, “How about the numbers? We going to lose this thing next week?” Insider: “The vote? Maybe. Not likely. But maybe. There’s always maybe. These sneaky f-cks know how to pad the numbers. We been running the absentee scam for a long time now. Sure they got that ready to go. …Oh, hell… just… you get enough people to go out and get an absentee ballot, then have them show up at the polls too. Simple. I’ve got a feeling all this early voting push… it’s tied into that. On a bigger scale than I’ve seen. Back in ’92… we took at least four counties that way [for Bill Clinton]. Big counties. Most of it gets flagged… but you still get about 10 or sometimes 20% of those through.” 
“Sh-t son… we all did [cheated]. Both sides. Here and there, yeah. It’s part of it. But these Obama boys… they took it to a whole other level. Votes, donations, deals—it’s a lot more [Vladimir] Putin than it is Clinton. Pay to play… Big Labor… this country never seen it at this level. And it shouldn’t have to, but they got the Senate. Had it locked up. Another firewall for all of them. Everything…every investigation, everything… it died in the Senate. Obama didn’t even have to get involved. …I will say this though… Romney… the Romney campaign. They are about as clean as I’ve seen. And I ain’t sayin’ that just because… you know. It’s the truth. Which is a good thing in a way, but in another way it worries me. Got an ulcer the size of my fist, swear to God… I’d feel better if they played a little more dirty on that end of things. Just for some peace of mind. It’s usually not the candidate who is the campaign crook. It’s… it’s the rest of us. We do the down and dirty, right? But Romney… he’s made it clear the campaign isn’t to go there. …But that don’t mean… a politician don’t win with respect. That’s what the Old Man [Wall Street insider] don’t understand. He should know… he was a mean son-of-a-bitch… you don’t know that part of him, 20 odd years ago… sh*t, he walked it, man. Now… he’s so damn polite! Trying to buy his way in [to Heaven] I suppose… can’t blame him for that. But he knows better—this political stuff… that update he sent you… he don’t know nothin’ about how this all works. A campaign. The internals. The messaging. Buying up the good air time before they do. The leaks. The promises. You got to give to get in this work… and let me tell you, it IS work.” 
The insider notes “…the Benghazi thing… it’s the real deal. I’m talking criminal here. At least administratively. It’s a cover-up. And they know it. Obama, some of them on the Hill… they know it. They have to. All the signs… it’s being buried right now… under that f-cking storm. But that’s not what’s got me so pissed there now… it’s bastards who promise something and then don’t deliver. That sh-t drives me f-cking nuts. I just don’t… how people go and do that… not when the stakes are this high. We’re all bastards… but we love our country, right? That’s where we draw the f-cking line, right? …But apparently not.” Ulsterman asks, “Who broke their promise? I assume they were going to do something on Benghazi.” The insider responds, “Hell yes they were… four of them. Three Rs… one D… well… a sorta D. [That is, three Republicans and possibly independent Joe Lieberman of Connecticut.] They would be doing a press conference right about now. They promised. Told House leadership they were gonna do it. …The main one. Mr. TV… they were Senate. All four. Senators. And f-cking liars. But…” [The White House insider wonders if the Wall Street insider pulled back somewhat and not everything that he could have done.] “He’s done us a hell of a lot of good… I ain’t sayin’ he hasn’t done that… but this Benghazi thing… somethin’ ain’t right here. How those Senators… they just shut it down. Used the storm as an excuse. Not a whole lot of people knew about the press conference [that was never held]. But the Old Man did…” 
Ulsterman and the insider return to the subject of the election. Ulsterman: “You said before… you said Obama only had 7 states locked up. That was it.” Insider: “Yes I did… I’d put that number about 8 now. He’s gained a little ground. Just a bit.” Ulsterman: “You also said Romney landslide.” Insider: “Sure… and I’ll keep on that… if they don’t steal it. Remember, I also told you the only way they win this thing is if they steal it… and that does have me very concerned.” Ulsterman: “What happens right after the election? If Obama loses?” Insider: “Riots.” Ulsterman: “And if Obama wins?” insider: “Riots. …[But] one will be temporary… the other… if Obama wins… it all becomes permanent. The country is done—at least as anything we will recognize. And I ain’t gonna see that happen without a fight. And frankly… I say we win this thing next week. And you should be a part of that. Don’t… I told you to walk away. I don’t mean that… you need to see this thing through. We all do. …Look, we are all feeling the pressure now. But thing is… as pissed as I was yesterday… I still say the voters are gonna do right by all of us next week. And I ain’t never been wrong on that. Never. And then… and then you go write that book and put my ugly mug on the cover. …You hold tight now. Take care. The governor… he’s got this. I may be a cheater… but I ain’t a liar. The governor… Governor Romney, is gonna win this thing. Next week… just hang on.”

Day 101 – April 30, 2009
Also on the site by Don Fredrick…
There once was a man named Obama
Elected with media drama
But try as he might
He lost the next fight
Despite having dispatched Osama.
There once was a woman Michelle
Who wore a face angry as Hell
But her husband was lacking
So they soon were sent packing
And all she could do then was yell.
There once was a man known as Mitt
Who was more than electably fit
To take over from Barry,
Moe, Curly, and Larry
And extinguish the fires they had lit.
There once was a fellow Joe Biden
Who thought he was good at presidin’
But his smile was as fake
As the hair on his pate
He was not a man one could confide in.
There once was a man known as Paul
Who worked in a giant-domed hall
So much smarter than Joe
Who he beat toe-to-toe
He’s now ready to answer our call.
There once was a Beckel named Bob
As rude as he was a fat slob
He offered opinions
Like all leftist minions
But mostly he seemed a big snob.
There once was a tall gal named Ann
With Coulter the name of her clan
She wrote many zingers
To chastise left-wingers
Which gave her quite many a fan.
There once was a genius named Rush
Whose enemies oft tried to crush
But their battles all ended
With them poorly defended
’Cause their minds were just liberal mush.
There once was man known as Hannity
Whose job was to stop the insanity
He offered sound reason
Against commie treason
While opponents just hurled profanity.
There once was the job of reporter
At newspapers of brick and mortar
But they now just transcribe
What Jay Carney decides
And are nothing but White House supporters.
There once was a beauty named Palin
Who leftists continued assailin’
But with charm and with wit
Made them all throw a fit
And it ended with Sarah prevailin’
There once was a man called Mark Steyn
Whose prose was refined as good wine
Though others would mimic
Or use a stale gimmick
Their words would all die on the vine.
There once was a man named Jay Carney
Whose job was dispensing much blarney
But it’s sad now to see
That his task came to be
Defending a Big Bird and Barney.
There once was a thug Eric Holder
Whose actions grew bolder and bolder
He sent guns ’cross the border
To disrupt peace and order
But it’s jail where he’ll be growing older.
There once was a wife of a president
Whose goal was to be White House resident
So she stood by Bill once
Then for Barry the dunce
But the voters have now become hesitant.
There once was a zealot named Chris
Who four years ago found his bliss
Now the thrill up his leg
Is a face full of egg
As his pal’s led us to the abyss.
There once was a fellow name Gore
Who tried to scare folks to the core
With tales of bad weather
Staying with us forever
But now he’s no more than a bore.
There once was a man name of Kerry
Whose route to much wealth was to marry
He once served in the war
Shot himself to miss more
Of his judgment we all should be wary.
There once was a Comrade Pelosi
As scary as Bela Lugosi
Pass her bill and you’ll learn
How it takes what you earn
Vote her out and you’ll find you will go free.
There once was a man known as Harry
Who looked like a meek actuary
But the budgets he skipped
While Mitt Romney he ripped
Proved allegiance to overlord Barry.
There once was a slumlord named Valerie
Who now gets a tax-funded salary
She controls Barry’s strings
As she rules the West Wing
Where she’s now oft referred to as Valkyrie.
There once was a show called The View
With one lovely gal and four shrews
To the lefties they pandered
While the righties they slandered
It was almost like watching the news.
There once was a man Michael Moore
Who certainly was far from poor
Yet he chastised the makers
As mean-spirited takers
Just a typical Hollywood whore.
There once was an actress named Eva
Whose actions were those of a diva
But her tweets angered some
Her responses were dumb
Her career now is not much to speak of.
There once was a hero named Geller
Whose fight for what’s right was quite stellar
Pam sought out the truth
A determined, tough sleuth
And that’s why her books are best sellers.
There once was a hurricane Sandy
As dangerous as a storm can be
But Obama was there
To repeat, “I do care!”
The most-used of his modus operandi.
Contributed by readers:
There once was a writer called Don
Who wanted poor Obi all gone
He recorded his actions
For all the “right” factions
Until the election was won!

Networks do not want to cover this important documentary, much less air it, but I will…
First up: Dinesh D’Souza answers questions about his documentary, “2016: Obama’s America”, which the Obama-Biden campaign finds “offending to Obama” and say it’s riddled with “falsehoods”. I encourage you to read this Q & A before watching “2016: Obama’s America”, which is at the end of this post.
“2016: Obama’s America” answers the question, “If Obama is re-elected, where will America be in 2016?” In 2008, people were looking for a leader who would unite us and lift up America from global chaos and our economic downturn. He did not unite us; he divided us. Most of the masses voted for Obama, but what they didn’t know is that Obama has a tumultuous past and a radical side, and love him or hate him, you don’t [really] know him.
Grab the popcorn, gather your friends, open your mind and, most importantly, judge for yourself…
“He who dares not offend cannot be honest.”
EXCLUSIVE: ’2016 Obama’s America’ Filmmaker Reacts To President’s Slam; Looking For Network To Air Before Election; Says Mainstream Media Refusing Coverage
By DOMINIC PATTEN
Tuesday, September 11, 2012 @ 4:39pm PDT
’2016: Obama’s America’ Docu Slammed By President’s Campaign As “Lies”
Dinesh D’Souza is the conservative author of the best-seller The Roots Of Obama’s Rage which was the basis for the #2 political documentary of all time 2016 Obama’s America. He is also its co-director. He answers today’s slam on the film by the Obama-Biden campaign, which comes just as the movie is hot in battleground states and its producers are looking for a network to air it before the November election. D’Souza attacks the mainstream media for “refusing” coverage:
DEADLINE: What is your reaction to today’s Obama-Biden campaign slam of 2016 Obama’s America??
DINESH D’SOUZA: “I welcome Obama’s critique of the film. He has probably figured out that he cannot ignore it any longer. Obama’s response is a characteristic mix of name calling and false allegations. Some of the claims he makes refer to things that are not even in the film. Elsewhere Obama just gets it wrong. For example, he disputes that he funded $2 billion in Brazilian oil exploration. In reality, Obama has given billions of dollars not only to Brazil but also to Colombia and Mexico to drill for oil. On March 19, 2011, Obama gave a speech in Brazil in which he deplored the legacy of colonialism, promised technology and support for Brazilian energy development, and concluded “when you are ready to start selling we want to be one of your best customers”. The facts in the film stand up very well to the closest scrutiny. I think people should see 2016 and make up their own minds.
DEADLINE: What do you think of the criticism the film has received?
D’SOUZA: The criticism of the film actually bothers me less than the neglect of the film. If I were Michael Moore and I were to make a film that was the No. 2 political documentary of all time, I would be on every network. I would be on Meet The Press, and I would be profiled in The New York Times, and I would be all over MSNBC. Instead large sectors of the press are refusing to cover the film. They are just pretending it doesn’t exist.
DEADLINE: What is your response to charges that you are simply an anti-Obama propagandist?
D’SOUZA: I tried very hard with this film to make an intelligent film with credible sources and new information. I’m a college president [D’Souza in 2010 was named the president of The King’s College, a Christian college located in New York City], I’ve been a fellow at the Hoover Institution and at the American Enterprise Institute, so what is kind of funny is in a guy like Michael Moore we have a true propagandist and a true conspiracy theorist. A guy who is fast and loose with the facts. My film was to some degree inspired by Fahrenheit 9/11. In the sense that I remember that Michael Moore dropped that film in the middle of the 2004 campaign and it had a big impact. But nevertheless, I set out to make very different type of film than Michael Moore. One that is, first of all, not just preaching to the converted. And second, one that doesn’t insult the intelligence of the audience. And I really think that is actually a large part also of the film’s appeal. That even though the left says it’s propaganda, it’s a risky attack on the film because when people go to see it, they actually see whether they agree or disagree that it is not propaganda. Whatever your politics, you are going to come away from this film saying at least, “Hey, I do know a whole bunch of things about Obama I didn’t know 90 minutes ago.”
DEADLINE: How do you respond to claims that the film is racist?
D’SOUZA: There have been some factual attempts to puncture the film but those I think have not worked. So now we have the sleezeball attack. Basically an attempt to blacken my name and imply the film is some sort of a birther type film, which it most emphatically is not, or to suggest that there is some racial element in the film. Whereas in reality I go out of my way to diffuse the race issue to say this is not about race. What Obama is about, in my opinion, is he is a Global redistributionist. He’s pursuing reparations but it’s not racial reparations. It’s global reparations for the sins and conquest of colonialism. So the film is manifestly not racial. Now it does explain that part of Obama’s appeal is that he, you know, offers White America the certificate of racial absolution, if you will. That he makes people feel good about voting for him, as if by doing that they are somehow transcending America’s racial past. …But that hardly makes the film a racial film. That’s simply part of the film’s intelligent analysis of what’s going on out there.
DEADLINE: You have been accused of saying that the President doesn’t have America’s best interests at heart.
D’SOUZA: Look, what I say is it’s not that Obama hates America. It’s not that he’s a traitor, that he’s a secret Muslim, that he’s a Manchurian Candidate. He simply subscribes to an ideology that thinks it would be good for America to have a diminished economy and a diminished role in the world. In other words, Obama is all about what he perceives as global justice. And global justice to him means a redistribution of wealth and power away from America and towards the rest of the world. That’s his ideology. He thinks it would be good for America to have a humbler role in the world. He thinks it would be good for America not to be No. 1 but to be No. 18 or No. 34 in the world. It’s part of his vision of global justice. Nowhere do I question his motives or say that he is a bad guy. Rather what I’m saying is these are his beliefs, this is his ideology.
DEADLINE: Why do you think the film has been successful at the box office?
D’SOUZA: I’ve been pleasantly surprised and thrilled by its success which I attribute to the deep hunger on the part of people for factual information about Obama, combined with a sense that the full story about Obama is not out there, combined with an intuitive sense that the mainstream media has not been doing its job in fully vetting Obama. So when people watch the film there is a powerful sense of “Wow, I didn’t know all this stuff” and “Why didn’t I know all this stuff because this information is really valuable in helping me think about Obama and the future of this country?” I also attribute it to the riveting Obama story. Obama has a fascinating story. I think there’s almost an element of Greek drama here of a boy who is left, abandoned by his father and goes on an odyssey to find his father and to find himself. I think it’s the storytelling element of the film that is part of makes it so effective. I wanted to make a film that didn’t look like a TV documentary but looked more like Out Of Africa. A beautiful shot film that would take you from Hawaii to Chicago to Indonesia to Kenya to tell the Obama story. So I feel very good about the quality of the film.
DEADLINE: Are you planning a sequel?
D’SOUZA: No, not a sequel about Obama. I’m excited about the idea of doing another film. But the topic that I’m thinking about has more to do with the search for God and the role of Christianity in the world rather than another film about Obama. It’s just an idea right now. I’ve written three books about this topic. It’s a topic that’s interested me for several years.

UPDATED: Thursday, September 27, 2011 07:27 PM (My original post follows my update)…
Ann Coulter went head-to-head today with the women of The View to promote her new book, “Mugged: Racial Demagoguery From The Seventies To Obama”. When you view this 2-part interview, it looks like Whoopi Goldberg was about to mug Ann Coulter…
The View: Ann Coulter on Her Book, Mugged – Part 1

After reading Michelle Malkin’s book, “Culture of Corruption”, this one is sure to feed my soul in equal measure…
If you don’t know who Ann Coulter is or what she stands for, click on “Ann Coulter” in my BlogRoll at the bottom of my QueenBeeWorld… site where I host a lot of others with similar views to my own.
Here’s a sneak peek into Ann Coulter’s new book, “Mugged: Racial Demagoguery From The Seventies To Obama”. I like her no-nonsense political views, and here she elaborates on racial issues and how the Left view blacks. As I repeatedly blogged about this same issue, I find it ironic how blacks support Democrats when history reveals that it was the Democrats who wanted to keep blacks in slavery, and it was the Republicans who fought and gave their lives to abolish it. Some people never learn…
“Ah, yes, truth. Funny how everyone is always asking for it, but when they get it, they don’t believe it because it’s not the truth they want to hear.”
Ann Coulter’s new book on racial issues
By: Patrick Gavin

|Ann Coulter’s latest book — “Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama” — comes out on Sept. 25, just weeks ahead of Election Day, but it’s not the kind of tome you’d expect from the conservative firebrand.Mitt Romney, for instance, isn’t mentioned at all. And, although much of the 336-page book discusses President Barack Obama (and Democrats, generally), it also takes a trip down memory lane, exploring events in our nation’s racial history as far back as the Civil War.Dedicated to “the freest black man in America,” Coulter’s “Mugged,” published by Sentinel/Penguin Group USA, is an exploration of the idea that, as she puts it, “the entire history of civil rights consists of Republicans battling Democrats to guarantee the constitutional rights of black people.”(Of slavery, Coulter calls it “a policy defended to the death of Democrats,” for instance).On the issue of current events, much of Coulter’s criticism of the president centers on his willingness to allow “others to make despicable racial smears on his behalf.”“As the New York Times described Obama’s typical campaign strategy back in 2008: ‘This has been [campaign manager David] Axelrod’s career, an eternal return to Chicago and to the politics of race.’”“Obama has repeatedly returned to the well of racial divisiveness to serve his political ends,” Coulter writes. “His 2008 presidential campaign managed to revive the white guilt that had long since dissipated, and then hinted that the one path to racial reconciliation was to make him president. Only then could we stop talking about race — a conversation he had initiated in the first place.”
“He was a dream come true for liberal elites: They could indulge in self-righteousness on race and get a hardcare leftie into the White House at the same time!”
Coulter even takes on Obama’s biography: “Obama’s childhood consisted of a Beverly Hills, 90210 existence at the prestigious Punahou School in Honolulu (2006 winner of ‘greenest’ school in America!). And yet he still managed to develop a racial hair trigger. Reading about Obama’s race fixation in the middle of suburban banality is akin to reading Hitler’s obsessive musing on his Germanic identity.”
Obama’s one-time pastor and friend, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, also figures prominently in Coulter’s discussion of race and the Democratic Party.
“If a white pastor had said what Obama’s preacher had said — not about black people, but literally, the exact same words — people might have noticed he’s crazier than the love child of David Duke and Ward Churchill (America-hating fake Indian). Both Churchill and the Reverend Wright, incidentally, referred to the attacks of 9/11 as the chickens coming ‘home to roost.’”
“Imagine a pastor calling Condoleezza Rice, ‘Condoskeeza Rice.’ Imagine a white pastor saying, ‘Racism is the American way. Racism is how this country was founded … We believe in white supremacy and black inferiority. And believe it more than we believe in God.’”
“The Democrats’ slogan during the Bush years was: ‘Dissent is patriotic.’ Under Obama, it’s ‘Dissent is racist.’” Later, Coulter writes, “Any fact that makes Americans less likely to vote for a Democrat is now called a racist smear.”
She also takes particular joy in poking fun of former broadcaster Keith Olbermann, referring to him as a “pasty white fruitcake,” an “Agriculture state school graduate” and “a gigantic fruit” (She also revels in the fact that Olbermann is unemployed). “Not everyone who wasn’t popular in high school has to spend the rest of his life seeking revenge,” Coutler writes of Olbermann.
Coulter’s dive into America’s racial history is likely to provide plenty of reason for rage for those on the other side of the ideological spectrum. She calls the video of Rodney King’s Los Angeles beating, “the most destructive edit in history” (“[W]hat the public saw was the officers’ final efforts to subdue a deranged suspect after all other methods had proved futile”), the 1988 Willie Horton ad “the greatest, fairest, most legitimate ad ever used in politics”) and the Confederate flag a representation of “a pride in values that exist independently of the institution of slavery”).
If “Mugged” seems like a slight diversion from Coulter’s usual serving of conservative punditry on current events, Coulter admits as much in the book’s acknowledgements, saying “the idea for this book struck me like a thunderbolt in April,” and it was a rush for her to complete it and get it on bookshelves just five months later.

Contrary to what some believe, not all blacks will be voting for Obama this time around. Burgess Owens, a retired safety who played ten seasons in the National Football League for the New York Jets and the Oakland Raiders, is urging blacks not to vote for Obama. As Mr. Owens tells it, “It’s not going to be white Americans who are going to do it. It’s going to be black Americans who have turned within themselves, and they go out and build great businesses, and they build communities.”
He has published an eBook entitled, “It’s All About Team: Exposing The Black Talented Tenth”. It’s a story about how blacks have fared since the start of the 20th century. I’m sure Mr. Owens will be labeled as a traitor by some blacks, but the label I’d put on him would be “smart and articulate”, and he makes a lot of sense here. He’ll probably be criticized from the Left and by blacks because he’s a Mormon as well, but from what I’ve seen, Mormons are very giving and loving people.
Here’s the story from WND…
NFL STAR URGES BLACKS NOT TO VOTE FOR OBAMA
‘I went out there, I worked for it, I built it’
Retired National Football League star Burgess Owens, a Super Bowl champion with the Oakland Raiders, has urged African-Americans not to vote for Barack Obama simply on the basis of race.
In his newly published e-book, “It’s All About Team: Exposing the Black Talented Tenth,” Owens recounts how he grew up as a liberal Democrat and supported Jimmy Carter.
A bankruptcy in the 1980s forced him to move his wife and four young children, the oldest 10, into the basement of his mother-in-law’s Brooklyn home.
At one point during that time, Owens worked as a chimney sweep during the day, built a networking business at night and then began a midnight shift as a security guard.
Still, through the economic difficulties, he retained confidence that he would be able to provide for his family and that his future would be brighter.
“I believe that my worth is not measured by what I do, by the honors that are bestowed upon me or by material wealth that I might obtain,” he writes. “Instead I am measured by the courage I show while standing for my beliefs, by the dedication I exhibit to ensure my word is good and the resolve I undertake to establish my actions and deeds as honorable.”
Owens told WND in an exclusive interview last week in Tampa, during the Republican National Convention, that his faith in God has inspired his life.
“We are going to have to have black ministers stand up once again,” he said. “Unfortunately, I have been a little disappointed that we have issues out there like traditional marriage, abortion, school education, and we have so much silence from the black community, from black preachers, because they understand first hand the impact of all that. We can no longer support those who are against the faith.”
Owens said social welfare programs promoted by the Democratic Party have created a government dependency within black communities to the detriment of the family and economic progress.
The progressive policies of the Democratic Party, he said, have created a culture of “defeat, breakdown, failure and collapse” in the African-American community, where abortion has taken the lives of 13 million black babies since 1973, an average of 325,000 deaths each year.
Owens has rejected “War on Poverty” government dependency in favor of the principles of our Founding Fathers.
“It is no accident that this country has been blessed with its abundance and its history as the freest and most productive in the world,” he writes in his book. “As its citizens humbly recommit to an acceptance of guidance from the God of our fathers, our nation will once again see the miraculous resurrection of the proud, responsible, visionary black father. And with him, his family and community will be lifted.”
Owens identifies with the themes of private enterprise and individual initiative.
“It’s heartwarming to hear from just normal Americans the same thing over and over again, ‘I went out there and I worked it, and I built it,’” he told WND. “That ‘I built it’ is the American way, and it comes back down to how are we’re going to change the black community.”
For Owens, that formula begins with belief in God, the restoration of the black family and the encouragement of black children to get an education to prepare them to compete economically.
“It’s not going to be white Americans who are going to do it,” Owens said. “It’s going to be black Americans who have turned within themselves, and they go out and build great businesses, and they build communities.”
Owens sees Obama building a central government structure typical of socialist governments that espouses advancement for minorities, while in reality enslaving them.
“There is still a desire, by most within the black community, to recapture for their children the ideals of a traditional family where moms and dads commit to each other and to their children through the lifelong bonds of marriage,” Owens concludes. “We can be the kind of example as the black middle class was for decades to give encouragement to others who follow.”

“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by
the way its animals are treated.”
I figured we could all use a diversion away from the doom and gloom, and this is definitely the ticket…
We’ve all loved and lost our pets, and it’s just as painful as losing a dear friend. We grieve because they were much more than pets, they were a member of our family. The unconditional love shared with a pet is just as powerful and deep as any close human relationship.
We all grieve for our pets in our own way, but when I came across The Rainbow Bridge poem and video a long time ago, it helped to heal my wounds. Since then, I have passed them on to others who have lost their pets. It is especially good for children to watch this video (and read a good book on the subject) as it gives them a good feeling, knowing their pets will be taken care of in the “pet afterlife”. I’m Posting the Legend of The Rainbow Bridge here and also the Rainbow Bridge Song, which is equally moving.
I am also including a true story of a little girl named Meredith who experienced the loss of her family’s 14-year-old dog, Abbey Lain. Meredith cried because she missed Abbey so much. She asked her mother if she could write a letter to God and enclose a picture so when Abbey got into heaven, God would recognize their pet. I have to say kudos to the person (or persons) at the post office in their town who had the compassion to reach out to this little girl and ease her pain in such a thoughtful way. Maybe the book that’s referenced in this true story (“When A Pet Dies” By Fred Rogers) would be a great book to read with your children if they lose their beloved pet. Another great book is “When Your Pet Dies” By Diane Pomerance.
In memory of all the beloved pets who have warmed our hearts and touched our souls. May they all rest in peace…
The Legend Of The Rainbow Bridge
Now for the letter…
Our 14 year old dog, Abbey, died last month. The day after she died, my 4-year-old daughter, Meredith, was crying and talking about how much she missed Abbey. She asked if we could write a letter to God so that when Abbey got to heaven, God would recognize her. I told her that I thought we could so she dictated these words: Dear God, Will you please take care of my dog? She died yesterday and is with you in heaven. I miss her very much. I am happy that you let me have her as my dog even though she got sick.
I hope you will play with her. She likes to play with balls and to swim. I am sending a picture of her so when you see her, You will know that she is my dog. I really miss her.
We put the letter in an envelope with a picture of Abbey and Meredith, and addressed it to God / Heaven. We put our return address on it. Then Meredith pasted several stamps on the front of the envelope because she said it would take lots of stamps to get the letter all the way to Heaven. That afternoon she dropped it into the letter box at the post office. A few days later, she asked if God had gotten the letter yet. I told her that I thought He had. Yesterday, there was a package wrapped in gold paper on our front porch addressed, ‘To Meredith’ in an unfamiliar hand. Meredith opened it. Inside was a book by Mr. Rogers called, ‘When a Pet Dies’. Taped to the inside front cover was the letter we had written to God in its opened envelope. On the opposite page was the picture of Abbey and Meredith, and this note:
Abbey arrived safely in heaven. Having the picture was a big help. I recognized Abbey right away. Abbey isn’t sick anymore. Her spirit is here with me just like it stays in your heart. Abbey loved being your dog. Since we don’t need our bodies in heaven, I don’t have any pockets to keep your picture in, so I am sending it back to you in this little book for you to keep and have something to remember Abbey by. Thank you for the beautiful letter and thank your mother for helping you write it and sending it to me. What a wonderful mother you have. I picked her especially for you. I send my blessings every day and remember that I love you very much. By the way, I’m easy to find, I am wherever there is love.
