By The Numbers…
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.

“No one will remember that President Obama supported the Arab Spring if it eventually fails and the region collapses back into the political Dark Ages. If we actively engage these movements with advice, with money, and, when necessary, with military force, then we get a vote in how it all turns out.”
Here’s a brief excerpt from The Jerusalem Post…
“Arab youth support for the Arab Spring is declining in the region, along with the hope for democracy that it entailed, a new survey finds.
The 7th Annual ASDA’A Burson-Marsteller Arab Youth Survey 2015 was conducted by international polling firm Penn Schoen Berland and explored the attitudes of Arab youth in 16 Middle East and North African countries. The survey took place in Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, the Palestinian territories, Tunisia, and Yemen.
Only 15 percent of Arab youth in 2015 believe the biggest obstacle facing the Middle East is a “lack of democracy,” compared to 41% in 2012, according to results posted on the survey website, arabyouthsurvey.com. Following the Arab Spring, which broke out in Tunisia in December 2010, many hoped or presumed that the uprisings would lead to a change toward democracy in the region. And now, just 38% agree that the Arab world is better off following the Arab Spring compared to 72% in 2012.
The survey found that 39% agree with the statement “democracy will never work in the region,” with another 36% saying it would work, and 25% undecided. An equal number of Arab men and women from the ages of 18-24 were interviewed in 3,500 face-to-face interviews from January 20 to February 12, 2015.
Asked how concerned they are about the rise of Islamic State, an overwhelming number (73%) said they are worried, but only 47% are confident in their own government’s ability to deal with it.”
So there you have it, even Arab youths are smarter than Obama, especially when asked about the biggest obstacle facing the Middle East. Seventy-three percent stated ISIS was their biggest concern. The way Obama sees it, the biggest threat facing the United States is not ISIS, but [non-existent] global warming.
I posted something on this very subject in April of 2011, approximately four months after the beginning of the ill-fated “Arab Spring”…
EGYPTIANS ARE SAYING THEY ARE WORSE OFF WITHOUT HOSNI MOBARAK…
My senses are telling me that the biggest threat facing the United States is Obama…

“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.

“We come, not to mourn our dead soldiers, but to praise them.”
—Francis A. Walker
Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday set aside to honor our fallen heroes who passed while serving in America’s Armed Forces. As we honor our fallen heroes on Memorial Day, we should honor them every day of our lives because they gave theirs for our freedom and liberties. It’s because of their valor and deep love of country that we enjoy those precious gifts.
This is my first post in a long time, which happens to be on this revered day—Memorial Day. I always try to focus on the blessings we enjoy in this country, but sometimes we need to be reminded why we have that freedom and at what cost.
I often walk in cemeteries because I find it so peaceful. As I pass the graves where veterans are buried, I offer to them a prayer of thanks for their heroism and sacrifices. Whether they passed in battle or after their tours were completed, they all deserve the utmost honor and respect. Around Memorial Day and Veterans Day (the day we honor all veterans who have served in the Armed Forces), when I see all the flags on graves throughout the cemetery, I’m reminded of their faithful service to our country. Sadly, there seems to be more as the years pass by.
We also need to be reminded that our fallen heroes aren’t just buried here in the United States; they’re buried overseas where they fought courageously against evil tyranny. Thanks to our military and its allies, so many countries have been freed of oppression. It’s unfortunate that evil still persists in this world, but with our strong and fearless military, we can be sure that wherever there is evil trying to rob us of our freedom, there will be fearless warriors who will fight to the death in order to preserve it.
Pictures are worth 1,000 words which is why I’ve posted images of the twenty European eternal resting places of our 104,366 fallen heroes (below). Following these images are some military quotes which I’ve found to be memorable and worth repeating.
The sheer magnitude of the number of American soldiers who paid the ultimate price in order to free the oppressed around the world should be reason enough to honor them for the sacrifices they made by emulating their courage, strength and love of country.
Their raw courage at being able to stare evil in the face while suppressing their fears in fierce combat confirms the fact that their abilities were given and guided by Almighty God Himself. Our soldiers know that the evil in front of them isn’t as strong as God, who’s always behind them. We are immensely grateful for the courage they’ve shown in combat, and thank them for their brave service to our country and to the European and Middle Eastern countries they rescued from tyranny. They all have our continuing love, gratitude, support and prayers. Rest In Peace, Brave Warriors…
Wishing you a peaceful and blessed Memorial Day…

People stand and look at the moon one day ahead of the Supermoon phenomenon from a bridge over 42nd St. in the Manhattan borough of New York July 11, 2014. Occurring when a full moon or new moon coincides with the closest approach the moon makes to the Earth, the Supermoon results in a larger-than-usual appearance of the lunar disk. Reuters
“And there shall be signs in the sun and in the moon and in the stars and in the earth, suffering of nations and clasping of hands, from the alarm of the sound of the sea.”
—Aramaic Bible in Plain English
ScienceCasts: A Summer of Super Moons
You’ll understand why I put “clasping of hands” in red as you continue to read…
I don’t believe in coincidences so this may be in alignment with the Holy Bible’s prophesy of what is to come; maybe not. It’s certainly open to interpretation…
I have a fascination with the Holy Bible, Its prophesies, Blood Moons and SuperMoons, and blogged about the Blood Moon prophesy that started last year on April 15, 2014—ironically on “Tax Day”, when our government bleeds us dry annually with ever-escalating taxes. There is a lot of information here. I trust that you will read it through to the end…
We will be experiencing three SuperMoons between tonight and September 9, 2014. According to the first article, the average distance between Earth and the Moon is 238,900 miles. When there is a Full Moon that is also closer to Earth, it is considered to be a SuperMoon, and that normally occurs once a year. The last time of a SuperMoon was June of last year (2013), when the Moon appeared to be 14% bigger and 30% brighter. This year, we have three SuperMoons in a row. The first is tonight, July 12, 2014, brightest and largest around 7:00 PM ET; the second on Sunday, August 10, 2014; and the third on Tuesday, September 9, 2014. Keep in mind that tonight’s SuperMoon will be just 222,611 miles away from Earth, which is known as a perigee. When in perigee, the Moon is around 31,068.6 (50,000 km) closer than when it’s furthest away (what is known as apogee).
According to International Business Times, NASA has slightly different numbers. I encourage you to read this article as well. Here is an excerpt…
“July’s full moon is also known as the Full Buck Moon, notes the Farmers’ Almanac, as the antlers begin to show on buck deer. The Full Thunder Moon is another name for the full moon due to common summer thunderstorms.
While people like to attach theories or conspiracies surrounding astronomical events, the supermoon is harmless. There was a belief that a supermoon would increase the chance of a major earthquake, but that has been debunked several times. Earlier in the year, the quartet of total lunar eclipses, beginning on April 15, received widespread attention as it was linked to a “blood moon conspiracy” involving a major historical event. The next total lunar eclipse in the tetrad, a series of four total lunar eclipses occurring in six-month intervals, takes place on Oct. 8.”
If you don’t catch a glimpse of tonight’s SuperMoon, you can catch an even better showing during the next SuperMoon on Sunday, August 10, 2014, when the Moon will be 863 miles closer than tonight’s SuperMoon, creating what is known as an “Extra SuperMoon”.
What is a SuperMoon? Answer taken from Wiki…
“A SuperMoon is the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth. The technical name is the perigee-syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system.”
When it comes to SuperMoons, is “three the charm”? Although I like to think of myself as an optimist, with everything Obama is doing to try and take down America and all the turmoil around the world, I believe we will have our hands full with not only with what is happening now, but also what is to come. Speaking of hands, I fear we will all be clenching our hands in distress. I bolded the relevant phrase…
Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible
And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon. They shall be darkened, and suffer very strange and surprising eclipses: and in the stars; they shall fall from heaven, as in Matthew 24:29 and so the Ethiopic version reads here: all which, as it may be understood in a literal sense, so it may likewise in figurative and mystical one, and be interpreted of the changes there should be in the Jewish state; See Gill on Matthew 24:29. So the Jewish writers (h) interpret the sun, the light, the moon, and stars, in Ecclesiastes 12:2. By the “sun” they understand the kingdom of the house of David; by “the light”, the law; by “the moon”, the sanhedrim; and by the stars, the Rabbins; and the same seem to be designed by the stars here: and upon the earth distress of nations; upon the land of Israel; in the several nations and countries belonging to it; as Galilee of the nations, Judea, and the region beyond Jordan, shall be in great distress: with perplexity; of mind, not knowing what to do, which way to go, or step to take; the Syriac version, instead of it, reads “clapping, or pressing of the hands”; which is done by persons, when in an agony and great distress: the sea and the waves roaring; which design some unusual and extraordinary storms and tempests, and inundations in the sea of Galilee, or Tiberias, which would be so very terrible, as to cause great uneasiness, distress, and perplexity; and so some versions render it, “because of the sea”, &c. (h) In Prefat. Echa Rabbati, fol. 38. 4. Jarchi in Ecclesiastes 12.2.
I have faith that as with all things, we will prevail over any adversities that come our way. Now for the articles from WND and Daily Mail on this phenomenon…
1st the blood moon, now the Supermoon
Is there spiritual significance in tonight’s lunar phenomenon?
Published: 20 hours ago
WASHINGTON – If it’s not too cloudy tonight and tomorrow night, you may be startled by the size of the moon.
It’s the first of three so-called Supermoons this summer.
And the discoverer of the blood moons phenomenon, Pastor Mark Biltz, author of “Blood Moons” and the inspiration for a documentary movie of the same name, sees a connection to the “signs in the sun, moon and stars” promised in the Bible.
This weekend’s sky show will be strongest at 7 p.m. Eastern Saturday when the moon will be large and strangely luminous. It will also be just 222,611 miles away from Earth and in what is known as its perigee. Full moons vary in size because of the oval shape of its orbit and its elliptical path around Earth. When in perigee, the moon is around 50,000 km closer than when it is furthest away, or in apogee.
But an even better show is coming later this summer on Aug. 10 when the moon will be 863 miles closer than on Saturday, and will become full on the same hour as perigree and will appear at its brightest in 2014.
Unlike solar eclipses and other celestial treats, Supermoons occur every 13 months and 18 days. The last time a supermoon made headlines was in June last year, when it appeared to be 14 percent bigger and 30 per cent brighter.
The distance of the moon from Earth varies in its orbit because the orbit is elliptical. The average distance from Earth to the Moon is 238,900 miles. When you have a combination of a full moon that is also closer it is considered a Supermoon. Typically, it is said, this occurs about once a year. But this summer there will be three in a row – July 12, Aug. 10 and Sept. 9.
But, to appreciate what these astronomical signs mean from a biblical standpoint, Biltz says you must check the biblical calendar – sometimes referred to as the “Jewish calendar.”
“Amazingly, according to the biblical calendar months these fall in the month of Tammuz when Israel worshiped the golden calf, the month of Av, when the 10 spies brought the evil report and when the Temple was destroyed twice on the same day, and the month of Elul, which is the month of repentance,” says Biltz, who discovered the blood moon tetrad occurring in 2014 and 2015 coincides with Passover and the Feast of Tabernacles in those successive years. “There is also added significance as it precedes a Shemitah year, or the seventh year of the seven-year cycle beginning this Rosh Hashanah. Next year, it happens again!”
Biltz, of El Shaddai Ministries in Tacoma, Washington, points out that in Genesis, God said He created the sun and the moon for signals about coming events.
“Are we watching?” he asks.

“Blood Moons: Decoding the Imminent Heavenly Signs” by Mark Biltz
Get ready for the summer of supermoons! Lunar surface will appear bigger and brighter tonight – and there will be THREE chances to see it
- July 12th, August 10th, and Sept. 9th will all be supermoons
- Full Moons that occur on the perigee side of the Moon’s orbit seem extra big and bright
It is set to be one of the best summers in history for sun watchers.
Tonight will see the first of three ‘supermoons’, where the sun appears far bigger and brighter than normal.
July 12th, August 10th, and Sept. 9th will all be supermoons, Nasa said, with August’s being ‘extra super’.
Scroll down for video
A supermoon rises over the temple of Poseidon, the ancient Greek god of the seas, in Cape Sounion some 60 km (37 miles) east of Athens June 23, 2013. On Saturday a perigee moon coincides with a full moon creating a super moon when it will pass by the earth at its closest point
WHAT IS A SUPERMOON
The supermoon is not the technical term for the full Moon.
Astronomers call this phenomenon a ‘perigee moon,’ which describes the full moon that occurs when the moon is at its closest point to Earth each year.
Perigee marks the closest point of a body as it orbits around Earth, while apogee marks the farthest point from Earth.
Full Moons vary in size because of the oval shape of the Moon’s orbit.
The Moon follows an elliptical path around Earth with one side (‘perigee’) about 50,000 km closer than the other (‘apogee’).
This coincidence happens three times in 2014.
On July 12th and Sept 9th the Moon becomes full on the same day as perigee.
On August 10th it becomes full during the same hour as perigee – arguably making it an extra-super Moon.
However, Geoff Chester of the US Naval Observatory say the phenomenon is not actually that rare – it’s just that we normally miss it.
‘Generally speaking, full Moons occur near perigee every 13 months and 18 days, so it’s not all that unusual,’ he says.
‘In fact, just last year there were three perigee Moons in a row, but only one was widely reported.’
He believes the ‘hanging moon’ is likely to be the thing most people remember.
Supermoon over New York: For reasons not fully understood by astronomers or psychologists, low-hanging Moons look unnaturally large when they beam through trees, buildings and other foreground objects.
‘The ‘Moon Illusion’ is probably what will make people remember this coming set of Full Moons, more than the actual view of the Moon itself,’ he said.
The illusion occurs when the Moon is near the horizon.
For reasons not fully understood by astronomers or psychologists, low-hanging Moons look unnaturally large when they beam through trees, buildings and other foreground objects.
When the Moon illusion amplifies a perigee Moon, the swollen orb rising in the east at sunset can seem super indeed.
‘I guarantee that some folks will think it’s the biggest Moon they’ve ever seen if they catch it rising over a distant horizon, because the media will have told them to pay attention to this particular one,’ says Chester.
‘There’s a part of me that wishes that this ‘super-Moon’ moniker would just dry up and blow away, like the ‘Blood-Moon’ that accompanied the most recent lunar eclipse, because it tends to promulgate a lot of mis-information,’ admits Chester.
‘However, if it gets people out and looking at the night sky and maybe hooks them into astronomy, then it’s a good thing.

According to Belinda Bee, the “2 Million Bikers to D.C.” organizer, over 800,000 patriotic bikers, despite numerous roadblocks (literally and figuratively), including being denied a no-stop permit, rode on to Washington, D.C. to honor those innocent victims who lost their lives at the hands of radical Islamist cowards on September 11, 2001, and to also honor our brave Armed Forces. Their ride started at the Harley Davidson store in Fort Washington, MD, then on to Washington, D.C.…
The bikers issued an apology to the D.C. area beforehand for all the noise that their bikes will make, but if you ask me, that noise is sweet music to my ears. Here’s the letter, in part…
“We did the right thing and went through the proper channels to secure a no-stop permit to ride through your great city,” the apology read. “We wanted to ride an established route, which would have taken us past the Viet Nam Memorial to the Lincoln Memorial, across the bridge into Virginia, and that’s it! We would have been completely out of Washington DC, and your city would have been back to normal.”
There was also a Million Muslim March that ended up rallying no more than about 25 people. Ironically, they were allowed the no-stop permit, if you can believe that atrocity. That count may include the small group of Christians who were protesting against their “Million Muslim March”, but it was more like “a short walk by a few”…
Million Muslim March organizer M.D. Rabbi Alam addresses an empty field and 25 people where a million Muslims were supposed to be.
We now know which side America is on. Now we just have to figure out which side Obama’s on…
Here’s the latest from TheBlaze—includes pictures and videos, and is constantly being updated… http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/09/11/video-motorcycles-rumble-through-on-the-way-to-d-c-for-911-rally/
Dear Almighty God, thank you so much for turning this very solemn day into a day that speaks volumes as to this country’s patriotism and strength. Against all odds, we will persevere, and all those who lost their lives on this day twelve years ago will be smiling knowing that America will honor them forevermore. I’ll close with a great quote…
“If Clinton had only attacked terrorism as much as he attacked George Bush, we wouldn’t be in this problem.”
AMEN! God, I love this great country…

The more I find out about Barack Hussein Obama and our government, the more sick to my stomach I become. Who the heck can we trust today?
When Bush was in office, we were all able to live productive lives knowing America was safe under his administration, letting us focus on our families, and making better lives for ourselves. Since Obama got into office, it’s been one catastrophe after another. We can’t even go one day without him and his henchman pulling another fast one over on us. We can’t breathe without being inundated with consistent Obama drama.
America is no longer a shining light upon a hill, it is fast becoming wonderful memories disappearing into a big black hole. How did Obama get into office when nobody knew anything about him? That’s how! He got into office because nobody really knew anything about him. We’re all finding out the hard way, bit by bit, as he rears his ugly head, just what he’s made of, and it isn’t pretty. I knew all along, as did others, about this snake-in-the-grass, but the masses bought into his worthless words of “hope” and “change”. We’re all seeing now what version of “hope” and “change” he meant.
We’ve been hearing lie after lie from this administration, but I think Obama’s days in the sun are starting to turn to gray skies when all is said and done. He has always shown such contempt for this country, and ironically, this country and countries all over the world are showing discontentment for him now.
I remember watching a video where he was shown boarding Marine One to a saluting Marine, gave a half-assed salute to someone onboard while going through the doorway, then someone inside apparently told him to get his butt back out there and try to appear presidential to the Marine, he went back out there and instead of a salute, Obama gave him a handshake. I thank God I wasn’t stupid enough to vote for that idiot—either time!
Then we hear John Kerry touting quite dramatically, “We saw rows of dead lined up in burial shrouds, the white linen unstained by a single drop of blood”, referring to this picture…
…claiming that those were the bodies of Syria’s chemical weapons massacre. We later learn that the photo he talked about was not from Syria. Heck, it wasn’t even from this decade. What he won’t tell us is that the photo he referred to was taken by Mr. di Lauro from Getty Images picture agency in 2003 during the Iraqi war under another Hussein dictator—Saddam.
Ironically, Kerry uses that image from the Iraqi war to call upon our sympathies, but there was no sympathy for Bush when he wanted to dethrone Saddam, where that picture originated from. Bush was met with opposition, yet now, we’re all asked to join together with Obama. Bull! He doesn’t even know who performed these heinous acts, or does he?
Mr. di Lauro describes his reaction here…
“I went home at 3am and I opened the BBC page which had a front page story about what happened in Syria and I almost felt off from my chair.
“One of my pictures from Iraq was used by the BBC web site as a front page illustration claiming that those were the bodies of yesterday’s massacre in Syria and that the picture was sent by an activist.
“Instead the picture was taken by me and it’s on my web site, on the feature section regarding a story I did In Iraq during the war called Iraq, the aftermath of Saddam.
He added he was less concerned about an apology or the use of image without consent, adding: “What is amazing it’s that a news organization has a picture proving a massacre that happened yesterday in Syria and instead it’s a picture that was taken in 2003 of a totally different massacre.
“Someone is using someone else’s picture for propaganda on purpose.”
When someone wildly exaggerates a story, it is only to benefit themselves and hide the truth for some dark reason. Obama and Kerry are grossly undermining our intelligence, and it will come back to haunt them. I’ve got to hand it to Obama, though, he needed a mother of a diversion to get our attention (and the media’s) away from all his other scandals that are mounting as high as America’s debt, especially about Benghazi, but unbeknownst to the both of these evil twins, we will never forget about Benghazi, and the rest of the truth will come out, in spite of Obama’s diversions surrounding us.
I never thought in a million years that I would be buzzing by a Russian news site, but here I am, doing it today—I like to keep my options open. Pravda, a Russian, Communist-leaning news site, has called out Obama, and I agree with just about everything this author has to say about Obama in both of the articles I’ve posted below: The first article is “Obama Versus The World” and the other, “Barack Obama: The Worst President In The History Of The USA”, both articles written by Timothy Bancroft-Hinchey.
For starters, they call out some statistics from The Drudge Report, where 729,336 votes were cast to the question, “Give Obama authority to conduct military operations in Syria? An astounding 667,929 votes were placed against, which is 92% of the votes, with just 8% in favor. Even Jon Stewart, who loves Obama, called him out on the IRS scandal.
There was a recent take-over of the village of Maaloula by Syrian Islamist rebels, where they attacked the Christian center and told Christians, “You either convert to Islam or you will be beheaded”. This is the MO of savage beasts, and most likely the orchestrators of the chemical attacks in Syria. This begs the question, who’s side is Obama on? Why isn’t Obama condemning radical Islamists who are beheading Christians. After all, he’s tried hard to convince us all that he’s a Christian, hasn’t he? Why is there no anger about these attacks on innocent Christians?
CNN showed snippets from the videos Obama showed Congress to help persuade them. Weird how Obama once blamed a YouTube video for the Benghazi terrorist attacks, yet he’s now using YouTube to further his agenda on an attack in Syria. The ironies are surrounding Obama lately.
Obama is preparing to talk with us tomorrow night. From him, there will be a lot of boiler plate material from past speeches, many Bush references, a lot of arrogant stances with his nose tilting up in the air in that arrogant Obama manner, many pregnant pauses and a lot of Uh’s. From us, there will be a lot of Zzzs…
Obama versus the world
Barack Obama, Nobel Peace Prize-winner, states that what is at stake is universal values because “I didn’t set a red line. The world did” in his words. Let us then examine the opinion polls and draw a conclusion as to whether Barack Obama is in syntony with the world, or whether he stands pitifully alone, advocating a criminal act once again tarnishing the image of his country.
We may start with the reports on the influential Drudge Report opinion poll, in which 729,336 votes were cast on the question: Give Obama authority to conduct military operations in Syria? The result was 667,929 votes against, or 92 per cent, and just eight per cent in favour, reflecting a general trend in the United States of America with eight to nine per cent in favour of what President Obama proposes. The ABC-Washington Post poll shows around 60% against missile strikes; the most favourable poll to Obama inside the USA is the Pew Report, which claims that the No vote is close to 50% and the Yes, some 29%. So much for his own country, now let us go abroad.
At an official level, China is against the attack, India is against the attack, Russia is against the attack, Iran is against the attack, Germany is against the attack, most of Latin America is against the attack, South Africa is against the attack, like most of the African continent … the list goes on and on and on and on and on, representing an official position against the attack representing the vast majority of humankind.
On the United Nations Security Council, Russia is against the attack, China is against the attack and the United Kingdom, while the Government is in favour, its Parliament is against. In fact, even in countries whose official position is in favour of military intervention, for example the UK, the people are against, in this case just 8% favour intervention.
66% of Britons said they did not care if the UK’s decision against military intervention damaged relations with the United States (BBC poll); in France, whose President Hollande has made declarations insinuating he would support a US attack (against the Rome Statute which France has signed), a BVA poll reported by Le Parisien-Aujourd’hui en France, shows 64% of those polled against military action.
So rather than having a red line drawn by the international community in favour of military intervention, we see clearly a lying John Kerry who used photographic evidence to back up his claim that military intervention was justified which was taken in 2003 in Iraq, who denies al-Qaeda are in action in Syria among the “rebel” forces the west supported from the beginning and we see a delusional Nobel Peace Prize-winner, Obama, whose sanity one must now place in question.
We see a red line drawn by the international community against military intervention and we see a red line drawn around the feet of President Obama as he stands alone, arrogantly and defiantly supporting military action which nobody wants and which is illegal under international law, whatever Congress decides.
It is President Obama against the world and Barack Obama is about to draw the outlines of his own political epitaph and the standing of his country in the international community.
Here’s another eye-opener from Pravda written by Timothy Bancroft-Hinchey just two days later. The author is correct in saying that in the history of the United States Of America, Obama is the worst person to set foot in the White House, and he did it via voter fraud…
Barack Obama: The worst President in the history of the USA
Make no mistake: Barack Hussein Obama is preparing to give a speech to the citizens of the United States of America next Tuesday in which he is planning to justify military action against Syria, with or without a nod from Congress. If he does so, he will write his name in the darkest annals of history.
George W. Bush was the human epitome of the saying, and pardon me, “sh*t stinks” because with him, you knew what you were getting, it was raw, it was in your face, it was unsophisticated, brash, rash, harsh, arrogance, belligerence, chauvinism, it was kick-a*s diplomacy at its very worst, it was riding roughshod over the international community, it was insulting to every norm or precept of common decency… but it was undisguised. It was honest.
With Barack Obama, there is a mist of perfume which disguises the filth that lies below his policies, a cloak, a mantle of decency, a promise of “change”, mere words used, abused and manipulated by a cynical coward devoid of any emotional intelligence at all, who does not have the guts to stand up to the lobbies pulling his strings, the corporate neo-con elitists who created his Presidency. Barack Obama’s entire persona is dishonest, he is a fraud of the worst kind, a siren’s song; his policy is double-faced, double-tongued, double-dealing and plain, downright deceitful.
Barack Obama promises one thing, he delivers another. He promises change, he receives a Nobel Peace Prize not for what he has done but for the breath of fresh air he represents and what does he do?
He supports terrorists in Libya, playing along with an Anglo-French imperialistic dream to steal Libya’s sovereign fund and pillage its resources, destroying a State which provided for its people. Then at the same time, he supports terrorists in Syria, arming and financing terrorist groups using his Middle Eastern bed-pals, Saudi Arabia and Qatar and regional monster Turkey.
It is a pea-brained, nonsensical, short-sighted and criminally reckless foreign policy, it is as illogical as it is dangerous and it is bound to rebound and blow up in Obama’s face. Detailed scientific evidence gathered by Russia backs up Moscow’s claim that it was the Syrian terrorists supported by the West which have carried out gas attacks, not Government forces.
The United States of America has not produced any evidence incriminating the Government of Bashar al-Assad in the recent chemical weapons attack in Ghouta while the finger of suspicion once again points at the terrorist forces backed by the Obama regime trying to frame the Syrian Arab Army.
However with a policy which uses deceit comes the need for intelligence and logic. What Government force is going to use chemical weapons in an area where its own troops are fighting (Obama focuses on images of children – one such image used by Kerry was taken in 2003 in Iraq – but there are other images of Syrian soldiers in hospital which he has chosen to ignore), what Government force is going to deploy chemical weaponry in an area where it is winning, what Government force is going to deploy such weaponry on the eve of a visit from UN experts?
Every time the UN has gone to Syria, the terrorists Obama backs have deployed chemical weapons.
Let us then conclude that Barack Obama is the worst President in the history of the United States of America because he has insulted not only the Nobel Institution to its core but also the international community and his own people by disregarding basic and common human values, supporting Islamist terrorists, including al-Qaeda pandering to the whims of the lobbies pulling his strings.
Any vote from Congress is meaningless in an international context because the forum of international law governing this case is the United Nations Security Council. If the United States of America does not like that, tough, then why did it sign the agreement? We now wait to see whether Congress listens to its Constituencies or whether it blows a raspberry in the faces of the American people sick and tired of their manipulation of fear and facts in their lying murderous schemes.
And this is the guy who stood for “change”? Change of what?

Fox News Calls Kentucky, Indiana for Romney, Vermont for Obama
By Dunstan Prial
Published November 06, 2012
Breaking: In a sign of things widely expected to come, the key swing states of Virginia, Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania are too close to call in the presidential election between President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney.
It’s almost certainly going to be a long night.
A small percentage of undecided voters in these swing states are viewed as the keys to turning the tight presidential election in favor of one candidate or the other.
Polls have shown the race has been neck and neck for weeks and exit polls on Tuesday have given no clear indication of voters’ preference.
In states where decisive election results are ready, Fox News projects that Romney has won the presidential race in Kentucky, Indiana and West Virginia, while President Obama has won Vermont.
In addition to the others where no clear winner can be determined, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina are also too close to call.
One thing is abundantly clear: the economy is the key issue on voters’ minds as they headed by the millions to the polls. And turnout appears to be strong across the country.
Obama and Romney have made their sharply differing governing philosophies clear following months of campaign barnstorming, in acceptance speeches at their respective conventions and during three recent televised debates.
By almost every measure analysts have viewed the two candidates as practically polar opposites with respect to their views on business.
If there is one broad criticism of Obama held by the business community it’s that the president failed to recognize the uncertainty that would arise from his biggest regulation proposals, whether those proposals affected Wall Street or the nation’s vast health care system.
“Businesses know they’re going to be regulated. What they can’t deal with is uncertainty,” said Bill O’Grady, chief market strategist at Confluence Investment Management in St. Louis.
Stock markets rallied Tuesday on optimism that the election might produce a clear victory for one candidate or the other, ending months of uncertainty that have weighed on financial markets and hindered economic growth as businesses have put expansion plans on hold until after the election.
Another theory making the rounds on Election Day was that a win by Obama would mean four more years of loose fiscal policy, a boon for stock markets. Romney has said he would not appoint Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke to another term. Bernanke is the architect of the loose monetary policies that have dominated the U.S. economy since the 2008 fiscal crisis.
The Dow Jones industrial average closed up 133.24 points, or 1.02%, at 13,245.68. The S&P 500 Index closed up 11.13 points, or 0.79%, at 1,428.39. The Nasdaq Composite Index rose 12.27 points, or 0.41%, at 3,011.93.
In other significant races, Fox News has projected that House Majority Leader Eric Cantor will defeat Democratic challenger Wayne Powell to serve a 7th term in Virginia’s 7th District.

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 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.’”

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.”

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!

I’m sure you’ve heard Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan talking about the $716 Billion that Obama has taken out of Medicare to fund ObamaCare. What you’re probably not aware of is the breakdown of these costs, and what programs are affected. Also not out in the media is the fact that senior citizens will have a very hard time looking for doctors who will take Medicare patients because of ObamaCare. The Democrats have brass balls to state that it’s Paul Ryan who’s “throwing granny off the cliff”. If seniors vote for Obama, that’s exactly what will happen to them. It’s so unfortunate that most people listen to and watch ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and MSNBC to get their news information. If they watched Fox News, they’d be better informed and protected. Do yourself a favor and watch the unbiased news streaming from Fox News and Fox Business. I’ve had it with the other Left-wing channels. They’re all angry, one-sided views about how much they hate what’s Right, focusing only on what’s wrong or Left. At least with Fox News, you get a balance of both sides, and the truth between the two.
Obama says he’s not cutting $716 from Medicare to fund ObamaCare, but experience has taught me to believe as truth the exact opposite of whatever he says. Even Slick Willy Clinton is stating that “there were no cuts to benefits—none!” He tried to pull another Lewinsky lie, but the facts speak for themselves. They have to lie to senior citizens; they’re trying to get their votes, after all. Here are the stats from National Review Online…
The one and only.

|Obama’s Robbery of Medicare to Fund Obamacare, in One ChartBy Deroy Murdock
September 21, 2012 11:44 A.M.
“Both Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan attacked the president for allegedly robbing Medicare of $716 billion,” former president William Jefferson Clinton told the Democratic National Convention on September 5. “Here’s what really happened. There were no cuts to benefits. None . . . President Obama and the Democrats didn’t weaken Medicare. They strengthened it.”
If Clinton were under oath in Charlotte, this would be called perjury.
Fortunately for him, this was not sworn testimony. President Obama won’t place his hand on the Bible, either, before he addresses an AARP convention in New Orleans today at 11:45 a.m. Eastern, as will GOP vice-presidential nominee Paul Ryan 45 minutes later. Obama and Ryan are likely to discuss the controversial question of what, exactly, the Democrats did with Medicare’s finances when they crammed Obamacare down America’s collective throat.
Democrats claim they did not touch it. They then spring to add that, if they did touch it, they didn’t cut benefits. All they did was reduce “overpayments” to avaricious hospitals, doctors, and drug companies.
I would love to pay my local movie theater $10.00 for film tickets, rather than $14.00. That would save me the $4.00 overpayment that they demand. So far, there is no motion-picture benefit in Obamacare. Someday, maybe, Chief Justice John Roberts will find a way to interpret one out of thin air.
Meanwhile, Republicans simply accuse Democrats of stealing $716 billion and pouring in it into Obamacare.
Democrats will find it difficult to refute the below chart by Heritage Foundation research assistant Alyene Senger. It very clearly shows the $716 billion that Democrats swiped and delineates exactly from where in Medicare they stole it. This is as close to a police report of a home burglary as one will find in public policy, a graph is based on irrefutable data from the Congressional Budget Office. Democrats can run but cannot hide from these numbers:
Between 2013 and 2022, ObamaCare swiped:
• $17 billion from hospice service
• $33 billion from all other services
• $39 billion from skilled nursing services
• $66 billion from home health services
• $145 billion from Disproportionate Share Hospital payments to medical centers that treat many low-income patients, plus other Medicare provisions
• $156 billion in payment rates in Medicare Advantage
• $260 billion in hospital services
. . . for a total of $716 billion.
Medicare is a massive, throbbing entitlement. Cutting it in certain places surely makes sense, and modernizing it in many ways is wise and vital. However, President Obama and his co-conspirators in this fraud should have used their meat cleaver to restructure Medicare, rather than use its parts to create a brand-new health-care Frankenstein. Having failed at that, they at least should be honest about these cuts, rather than lie constantly to seniors about “strengthening” Medicare . . .by making it even more wobbly.
It is difficult to provide a precise analogy of what Democrats did to Medicare, but this may come close:
Imagine that someone yanks from your bank account an amount of your savings to equal, say, three months’ worth of home mortgage payments. He then uses that money to cover the rent on some other people’s apartments down the street. He then reassures you that he has strengthened your bank account, since the rent money for those other people would have covered “overpayments” to your greedy landlord who doesn’t deserve all of that money anyway, the rat bastard!
Anyone who pulled such a stunt would be laughed out of town, if not arrested.
Barack Obama should not be arrested for his robbery of $716 billion from Medicare. It will be suffice for him to fly home to Chicago on January 20 amid national peals of laughter.

Rasmussen, by far, has the most accurate, up-to-date polling statistics (thank you, Scott! We love you!) Obama’s approval isn’t looking too good so be prepared to hear more hate, fear and lies coming from him and his campaign in the coming weeks. That’s the only thing he’s got because he can’t run on his “accomplishments”.
Following is the latest presidential tracking poll as of today, Sunday, October 7, 2012, according to Rasmussen. Please keep in mind that these numbers are based upon interviews conducted after the first presidential debate that was held last week, October 3, 2012. First, take a look at the Electoral College Map…
2012 Electoral College Scoreboard
Daily Presidential Tracking Poll
Sunday, October 07, 2012
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday shows Mitt Romney attracting support from 49% of voters nationwide, while President Obama earns the vote from 47%. Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate, and two percent (2%) are undecided.
These results are based upon nightly interviews and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. As a result, today’s update is the first based entirely upon interviews conducted after the first presidential debate last Wednesday night.
The numbers reflect a modest debate bounce for Romney. See daily tracking history. As with all bounces, it remains to be seen whether it is a temporary blip or signals a lasting change in the race.
Scott Rasmussen’s weekly newspaper column notes that “incumbent presidents often struggle in the first debate and do better in the second. Ronald Reagan may be the greatest example of this.” Rasmussen wonders, “Does Obama have a comeback like that in him? We’ll find out on October 16.”
Forty-five percent (45%) of voters are “certain” they will vote for Romney and not change their mind before voting. Forty-three percent (43%) are certain they will vote for Obama. Platinum Members can still see the more detailed numbers along with demographic breakdowns, and additional information from the tracking poll on a daily basis.
Matchup results are updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern (sign up for free daily e-mail update).
Neil Barofsky, the Special Inspector General for the TARP bailouts, joins Scott Rasmussen on this weekend’s edition of What America Thinks. His experience as an outsider in Washington suggests that things in the nation’s capital are even worse than most people think. The nationally syndicated television show can be seen on more than 60 stations nationwide. In New York, it can be found on WLNY in New York at 10:30 on Sunday morning. In Phoenix, it’s on CBS5 this afternoon at 5 right before the local news. This weekend’s show also features a post-debate discussion of where things stand in Election 2012.
Post-debate state polls show Romney up one in Virginia, the president up one in Ohio and Romney up two in Florida. All three remain Toss-Ups in the Rasmussen Reports Electoral College Projections. Check out our review of last week’s key polls to see “What They Told Us.”
Rasmussen Reports is a media company whose work is followed by millions on a wide variety of platforms. In addition to the new TV show, we regularly release our work at RasmussenReports.com, through a daily email newsletter, a nationally syndicated radio news service, an online video service and a weekly newspaper column distributed by Creators Syndicate.

(Presidential Job Approval Data Below)
A president’s job approval rating is one of the best indicators for assessing his chances of reelection. Typically, the president’s job approval rating on Election Day will be close to the share of the vote he receives. Currently, 50% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president’s job performance. Forty-nine percent (49%) at least somewhat disapprove (see trends).
Democrat Tim Kaine has grabbed the lead in the Virginia Senate race. Democrats are likely to stay in charge of the Senate in November according to the Rasmussen Reports Balance of Power projections.
To get a sense of longer-term Job Approval trends for the president, Rasmussen Reports compiles our tracking data on a full month-by-month basis.
(Approval Index data below)
Intensity of support or opposition can have an impact on campaigns. Currently, 29% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way Obama is performing as president. Forty-two percent (42%) Strongly Disapprove, giving him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -13 (see trends).
During midterm elections, intensity of support can have a tremendous impact on turnout. That was demonstrated in 2010 when Republicans and unaffiliated voters turned out in large numbers to express opposition to the Obama administration’s policies. However, in presidential election years, there is a smaller impact on turnout.
Rasmussen Reports has been a pioneer in the use of automated telephone polling techniques, but many other firms still utilize their own operator-assisted technology (see methodology). Pollsters for Presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton have cited our “unchallenged record for both integrity and accuracy.” During Election 2008, Rasmussen Reports projected that Barack Obama would defeat John McCain by a 52% to 46% margin. Obama was 53% to 46%. In 2004, Rasmussen Reports was the only firm to project the vote totals for both candidates within half a percentage point. Learn more about the Rasmussen Reports track record over the years.
Daily tracking results are collected via telephone surveys of 500 likely voters per night and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. To reach those who have abandoned traditional landline telephones, Rasmussen Reports uses an online survey tool to interview randomly selected participants from a demographically diverse panel. The margin of sampling error for the full sample of 1,500 Likely Voters is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Results are also compiled on a full-week basis and crosstabs for full-week results are available for Platinum Members.

Did Romney edge past Obama in the latest polls after last night’s debate? In the Rasmussen story below, you’ll find poll numbers and also an eye-opening Univision video about Obama and the Fast and Furious scandal (click on “Univision” below) and also the racist rants coming from Obama in 2007 (click on “Full Video” below)…
When all the facts about the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya are known, Obama’s numbers will go down so low, you’d have to get down on the ground to look at them. In last night’s debate, Romney hit it out of the park, and I’m hoping that substance over self-obsessed style will win out next month…
Rasmussen Polls Show that Presidential Debate Last Night May Put Romney in the Lead<!–
Read Full Post
On Wednesday night, the first presidential debate between President Obama and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney took place in Colorado at the University of Denver. Numerous talking heads on the left and right had been saying that if Mitt Romney did not knock it out of the park last night, he was done. However, Romney was not the only one with a lot on his plate on Wednesday, as Obama and Romney are locked in a battle over several key swing states. Now that the debate is over, both candidates must re-focus on closing the gap.
Despite the fact that President Obama is outspending Mitt Romney on TV ads, the momentum does not appear to be moving his way in certain states. Florida and Virginia both appear to be reversing course. According to a Suffolk poll, a month ago President Obama has a comfortable five point lead in both states, which now has gone down to only two points, well within the margin of error.
The same poll shows Obama’s once commanding lead on foreign policy slipping down, a lead that Romney could eat into further as more facts about the attack on the Libyan Consulate become known. House GOP leaders have begun to investigate the matter, especially after learning that requests by the Libyan consulate for improved security were denied multiple times.
According to Rasmussen, Mitt Romney is now ahead of Obama in North Carolina, 51% to 47%. North Carolina, like Virginia and Florida, is a must-win for Romney. And a recent poll conducted by National Journal showed Mitt Romney once again in the lead with independent voters, 49%to 41% The two are tired overall across the country at 47% each.
That amazing Obamacare everyone is supposed to love? Well, apparently 55% of doctors didn’t get the memo. While the sample for this particular poll is not perfect, it’s a much more accurate representation of the electorate than some more recent atrocities that the mainstream media has tried to feed people.
Buried within each poll is a series of mixed messages that makes it very difficult to see how this election will play out. While President Obama leads with women, Mitt Romney leads with men. Romney continues to hold commanding leads with independents, while Obama continues to receive strong support from the African American and Hispanic communities.
And there are other developments that will no doubt have an impact, even if it is only a small one. Recently, a special broadcast on Univision excoriated President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder for the “Fast and Furious” scandal, most notably for the deaths of dozens of individuals in Mexico. On top of that, a video of then-candidate Obama from 2007 has emerged which may change some voters’ minds. While the video was previously released five years ago, the ad-libbed parts of the speech were not. Many people may come to find these remarks about white people and those living in the suburbs to be rather offensive or inflammatory. (Full video appears on the third page of the article.)
Those inside the Obama camp that are hoping that the videos from the past will stop shouldn’t hold their breath. The Daily Caller dropped a second video on Wednesday, this time showing Obama in 2002 attacking wealthier Americans. Obama now has to compete with the same kind of bad press that Romney has been dealing with for months.
The presidential debate last night, combined with this polling data, should have President Obama worried. Romney has worked his way back up to striking distance in just four weeks. Last night’s debate, which has been called for Romney, could tip the balance permanently.

Tuesday, July 7, 2015 — 8:15 PM (My original post follows my update)
I’m updating this post in light of the recent and escalating horrific crimes committed by illegal aliens upon innocent Americans. Many are repeat offenders, repeat deportees, and career criminals, but they’re still here, many of whom are bucking our system and collecting welfare, food stamps, EBT cards, have multiple social security cards, procreating and we’re paying for their illegal children as well, just to name a few. They must be stopped and deported NOW! Amnesty for illegal aliens isn’t working! Our prisons are overcrowded with these illegals and we pay for their incarcerations and meals, and many are roaming free also at our expense with free housing, free healthcare, free Obama phones, free food—freedoms that they aren’t entitled to. They aren’t assimilating into our country like legal immigrants, they are assaulting our country! Anyone with half a brain can understand the consequences of illegal amnesty when many of them are criminals. Now our government is doing something, but will it be enough? Not unless they close the borders indefinitely so we can sort out the problem from within first…
Liberals and Progressives will continue to call anyone who opposes illegal amnesty bigots and racists, but we are not opposed to legal immigration. This country is full of wonderful immigrants who have made America great throughout the years. We’re against illegal aliens who are breaking the very laws that Americans have to abide by, starting with illegally crossing our border. There are law-abiding immigrants who patiently wait and abide by America’s laws, and I feel sorry for them. I’m wondering how they feel that they wait, yet illegal aliens are crossing the border illegally, and instead of being arrested, they’re getting the red carpet treatment from Obama.
Kathryn “Kate” Steinle, 32, a medical device sales rep was murdered by 45-year old Mexican career felon illegal alien, Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez on July 1 2015 down on Pier 14 in San Francisco, CA. He claimed it was an “accident”…
On Wednesday, July 1, 2015, Kathryn “Kate” Steinle was walking with her father and a friend down at Pier 14 in San Francisco on a beautiful sunny afternoon. Suddenly, for no apparent reason, a five-time deportee / seven-time convicted felon illegal alien who was recently freed from custody, Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, shot her, and she later passed (may God rest her soul). When interviewed, Sanchez stated that he came to San Francisco because he knew it was a sanctuary city, and he’d be protected from being turned over to immigration officials in San Francisco. How ironic that his first name is Francisco.
According to Breitbart…
“An ICE official told Breitbart News that ICE Enforcement and Removal had begun processing the suspect for reinstatement of removal from the U.S. in March. But instead Lopez-Sanchez was transferred on March 26 from the Bureau of Prisons in another city to the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department (SFSD) because of a drug warrant. ICE then filed the detainer request to be notified prior to Lopez-Sanchez’s release from custody.
A San Francisco court dismissed Lopez-Sanchez’s drug charges on March 27.
San Francisco and SFSD policy is to deny ICE detainer requests, barring special circumstances, such as a warrant for a suspected violent offender. The ICE detainer request was denied, and on April 15, 2015 Lopez-Sanchez was released. Two and a half months later Kate Steinle was killed.”
Here’s a video of Bill O’Reilly’s Talking Points Memo on the vilifying of Donald Trump and O’Reilly elaborates on this needless, horrific act by an out-of-control, repeat-criminal illegal alien who was deported five times, arrested seven times yet was allowed to continue walking the streets of San Francisco.
“Where is a law that says if you are deported one time and come back, you serve five years in prison? Congress should pass it. If President Obama doesn’t sign it, everything will then be on the table. It’ll be ‘on him’. That legislation should be called the ‘Kate Steinle Law’, much like “Jessica’s Law’. So who will sponsor the new law? We are looking for some legislators of courage. Are you out there? Talking Points is disgusted with the cowardice of our elected officials, from the crazy Left San Francisco people, to the president, to Congress…”
The second video is a video on the “Amnesty Madness” by Bill Blaso (as his “Thomas Paine” persona) which was posted in 2009, but still rings true today (links to relevant stories follow in this update…
First is O’Reilly Factor video…

Here’s my Original Post…
A sanctuary city is a term given to a city in the United States that follows certain practices that protect illegal aliens…
No wonder there’s a huge influx of illegal aliens coming into this country, draining all our resources. Our government officials are harboring them throughout the United States. Arizona is trying to make stricter laws against illegal immigration, but the Obama administration have been turning their backs on this invasion. Must be all about the votes, because with the votes, they can remain in power. I hope taxpayers will remember this in November because it is us who are footing the bill for these illegal invaders, not the politicians.
You Liberals out there will probably call me a racist for my opinion of illegal aliens, but you and I know that the facts speak for themselves. I would not have a problem if they came into this country legally, but there’s a good reason why they don’t—they have something to hide. People aren’t against immigration; they’re against illegal aliens invading our country and getting something for nothing, all at our expense, with many who seem to be above the law.
Here’s a great site that lists all sanctuary cities in the United States along with pertinent information on various cities and states…
Sanctuary Cities and States
Here is a vast array of photos and videos of illegal aliens crossing the border into the United States. Do you really think they’re all coming here to make an honest living? Judging from the high crime rate from illegal aliens in this country, that would be a big fat NO…

UPDATED: Friday, April 1, 2011, 8:26 AM (My original post follows my update)
I originally posted this to my blog on March 8, 2010. If some are still confused as to how to convert time zones to anywhere in the world, here’s a handy and easy Time Zone Converter to use that I recently found. Works great when Daylight Savings Time is in effect as well…
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –
Here is my Original Post…
UTC does not change with the change of seasons, but local time or civil time may change if a time zone jurisdiction observes daylight saving time or summer time, which is what occurs where I live. For example, the UTC is 5 hours ahead of local time here on the east coast of the United States during the winter, but 4 hours ahead during the summer.
This can be very confusing, especially with Daylight Saving approaching on Sunday, March 14th at 2:00 AM (where we “spring ahead” one hour) so I thought this would make a great post…
How do I translate Universal Time into my time?
Read Full Post
The world is divided up into about 24 time zones. We say “about” because some states, regions or countries shift their times by half an hour from the strict 24 hour divisions. Standard time within most time zones is an integral number of hours offset from a time scale called Universal Time Coordinated (abbreviated UTC), maintained by a large number of very precise “atomic clocks” at laboratories around the world, including the U.S. Naval Observatory.
To translate UTC into your local time, use the following table:
|Atlantic Daylight Time
||subtract 3 hours from UTC
|Atlantic Standard Time
||subtract 4 hours from UTC
|Eastern Daylight Time
||subtract 4 hours from UTC
|Eastern Standard Time
||subtract 5 hours from UTC
|Central Daylight Time
||subtract 5 hours from UTC
|Central Standard Time
||subtract 6 hours from UTC
|Mountain Daylight Time
||subtract 6 hours from UTC
|Mountain Standard Time
||subtract 7 hours from UTC
|Pacific Daylight Time
||subtract 7 hours from UTC
|Pacific Standard Time
||subtract 8 hours from UTC
|Alaska Daylight Time
||subtract 8 hours from UTC
|Alaska Standard Time
||subtract 9 hours from UTC
|Hawaii-Aleutian Daylight Time
||subtract 9 hours from UTC
|Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time
||subtract 10 hours from UTC
|Samoa Standard Time
||subtract 11 hours from UTC
|Greenwich Mean Time
||same as UTC
|British Summer Time
||add 1 hour to UTC
|Central European Time
||add 1 hour to UTC
|Central European Summer Time
||add 2 hours to UTC
|Eastern European Time
||add 2 hour to UTC
|Eastern European Summer Time
||add 3 hours to UTC
|Charlie Time (Mid East)
||add 3 hour to UTC
|Delta Time (Mid East)
||add 4 hour to UTC
|Western Standard Time
||add 8 hours to UTC
|Western Summer Time
||add 9 hours to UTC
|Central Standard Time
||add 9:30 hours to UTC
|Central Summer Time
||add 10:30 hours to UTC
||add 10 hours to UTC
|Eastern Summer Time
||add 11 hours to UTC
Let’s say you live in Houston, Texas, which is in Central Standard Time (U.S.). To convert 18:00 UTC into your local time, subtract 6 hours, to get 12:00 CST. During daylight saving (summer) time, you would only subtract 5 hours, so 18:00 UTC would convert to 13:00 CDT. Or, let’s say you’re in Paris, France, which is in Central European Time. To convert 18:00 UTC into your local time, add 1 hour, to get 19:00 CET or in summer, add 2 hours to get 20:00 CEST.
When converting zone time to or from UTC, dates must be properly taken into account. For example, 10 March at 02:00 UTC is the same as 9 March at 21:00 EST (U.S.). The table can also be used to determine the difference between the time observed in any two zones. For example, the table shows that Eastern Standard Time is three hours “ahead” of Pacific Standard Time (U.S.).

This comment by my cousin made me laugh, but I became solemn over these staggering statistics. She said, and I quote: “Of course you know, Christmas Eve, our present from our ELECTED OFFICIALS will be a ROYAL SCREWING. Been bent over so long now I doubt I will ever be able to stand straight again.”
I agree with her. To make matters worse, our government is kissing us off after they screw us. Now for the staggering statistics…
A recent “Investor’s Business Daily” article provided very interesting statistics from a survey by the United Nations International Health Organization.
Percentage of men and women who survived a cancer five years after diagnosis:
Percentage of patients diagnosed with diabetes who received treatment within six months:
Percentage of seniors needing hip replacement who received it within six months:
Percentage referred to a medical specialist who see one within one month:
Number of MRI scanners (a prime diagnostic tool) per million people: U.S. 71
Percentage of seniors (65+), with low income, who say they are in “excellent health”:
I don’t know about you, but I don’t want “Universal Healthcare” comparable to England or Canada.
Moreover, it was Sen. Harry Reid who said, “Elderly Americans must learn to accept the inconveniences of old age..”
SHIP HIS A** TO CANADA OR ENGLAND!
