ALOHA, ALL!! Something odd is happening. Did you ever think Oprah’s BFF, Gayle King, would say amazing, complimentary things about Mitt Romney? On TV? And it wasn’t just her, Charlie Rose did too! What the heck is going on? They were interviewing author Jeff Benedict who wrote the book, “The Mormon Way,” and is a friend of Mitt Romney’s. Check this out (shaka to Susie for the link): Doing Business The Mormon Way Coming on the heels of the Newsweek cover screaming “Hit the Road, Barack,” it makes one wonder if journalists and TV commentators have grown spines. Are they finally searching for truth? Nah – they’re just covering their okoles because they know Obama is toast. Then there’s Chris Matthews (see below.)
Do you think this story will get out? Romney Charitable Giving Has Outpaced Obama Key point: ”[D]uring a comparable period before Obama and Romney were running for president, Romney’s giving probably was at least ten times Obama’s as a percentage of their incomes, and possibly much more.”
How about this one? Romney Closes Bain To Look For Daughter of Missing Colleague ”And so I said,” Romney recalled when asked about the incident during a town hall meeting in March 2012, “‘Let’s close the firm, let’s close the company. Let’s all of us fly down to New York and try to find her….Gay, Romney, and team literally fanned out on the streets of Manhattan in suits and ties, distributing 300,000 fliers and asking passersby point-blank if they had seen the missing girl.” Hopefully, we’ll be seeing this ad a lot more from now until November 6:
RIP Neil Armstrong. Of course, Obama managed to use the death of an American hero to promote himself: To Honor Neil Armstrong, Obama Posts Photo of Himself Yes, he did. ”Obama’s greatest achievement, though, is creating his own personal narrative. He is his own personal touchstone. Even when honoring a great American hero, Obama can’t help but thrust himself into the event.” Frankly, I don’t think Armstrong was an Obamabot: Armstrong ”In one of his last public appearances, Armstrong testified before a congressional committee against the Obama administration’s plan to redirect NASA’s efforts away from human exploration of space and toward more basic long-term science research, a plan he called “devastating.” We’ve lost another great one.
Not much to say here: Obama Rejects Pro-Life Catholic Cardinal’s Benediction At DNC Of course, Muslims get a full day of activities. And Dems say the GOP is extreme?????
LOL!!!!! Still love Newt. Chris Matthews should know better that mess with someone with a superior intellect, which means just about anyone. Doofus. Gingrich is in another league!
And…..new ad to be unveiled at the GOP convention Tuesday! ‘Bow To Nobody’ is from the Special Operations For America Super PAC. Yep – the SEALs. You know….the guys that Barry said he wasn’t taking “too seriously.” Take this, Barry!
BTW, did you see 2016 yet???? Apparently the press is perplexed about why it’s so popular: Why Is The Press Ignoring The Success of ’2016′?

ALOHA, ALL!! Let’s take a trip to all those great places where unicorns sprinkle fancy fairy dust and make us all happy! After all, that’s where Barry/Barack went yesterday.
Hey Barack 0bama – you’ve just ruined the United States! Where are you going next? Obama Says No to Keystone XL, Heads to Disney World ”Yesterday in Walt Disney World, the land “where dreams come true,” President Barack Obama appeared before Cinderella’s Castle to announce his latest plan to boost jobs in America–an effort to increase tourism to the United States.” No, this is not a joke.

ALOHA, ALL!! In the last HDR, you read how the left used MLK day to spew racism against whites. But it looks like they used the day in other ways, namely to break voter registration laws and to blatantly promote the leftist political agenda in church. Valerie Jarrett spoke at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta and basically gave a campaign speech for Barry/Barack: This administration thinks rules don’t apply to them! They also held a voter registration drive immediately following Jarrett’s speech in direct violation of this:
Voter education or registration activities with evidence of bias that (a) would favor one candidate over another; (b) oppose a candidate in some manner; or (c) have the effect of favoring a candidate or group of candidates, will constitute prohibited participation or intervention.
So do you think the IRS will revoke Ebenezer Baptist Church’s tax-exempt status? Don’t hold your breath. (Shaka to Smart Girl Politics for the story and Don for the photo.)

ALOHA, ALL!! Joy. The 0bamas are headed back to Kailua for their Christmas holiday. 17 days of frolicking in the sun, with non-stop media fawning, er, coverage every time they go eat shave ice. Each time Barry’s entourage heads out, the roads are a mess. And the taxpayers foot the bill for all the security, travel and so much more (in their infinite goodness, the 0bama’s pay to rent the $3500/night house.) But why should they care? Why should the press point out the arrogance of Barry’s many vacations? In reality, I’m sure many members of the Fourth Estate are thrilled to have this junket to Hawaii in December. They continue to worship the ground he walks on and sing his praises. They continue to push all lefty causes and ridicule the right. So let’s listen to another side of the story:
It’s good to be Barry. Weasel Zippers » Blog Archive » It’s Good To Be King: Obama Heads Back To Hawaii For 17-Day Vacation “Maybe we should cut him some slack. I mean he hasn’t been to Hawaii since mid-November.”
But wait….you, too, could rent Barry’s Hawaii beachfront house! Anyone can rent President Obama’s vacation home – USATODAY.com Gotts LOVE this part: “That’s rich for most folks’ blood, but if you had a big family sharing the cost, it could be doable.” Really? At $3500 a night?
The kids are alright. Obama: My kids will succeed, even if USA doesn’t – Common American Journal “President Obama believes that Republican leadership of the country would ruin the United States as a land of opportunity, but he’s (justifiably) confident that his daughters will have plenty of opportunities, no matter what.”
Why Newt continues to rise: » Newt “goes there” on Obama/Alinsky – Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion “Obama believes in a Saul Alinsky radicalism which the press corps was never willing to look at,” Gingrich told a standing room-only crowd at Tommy’s Country Ham House here. “When he said he was a community organizer, it wasn’t Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. It was radicalism taught on the south side of Chicago by Saul Alinsky.”
And how’s this for more accurate coverage of 0bamacare (with a Christmas twist)?
Don’t call us…especially if you don’t agree with us. The band Madison Rising(who did “Where Was the Media Then?”) is unapologetically patriotic. Madison Rising: Home So what happened when they tried to get a permit to perform at Zuccotti Park? Check this out:
ANTI-OCCUPY BAND BANNED FROM PLAYING IN ZUCCOTTI PARK
Madison Rising’s “Take Back Wall Street” concert permit denied.
New York, NY – Dec. 4… Madison Rising will not skirt the law. The pro-America rock band wanted to procure a legal permit for a live anti-Occupy Wall Street performance. A full week was spent on a wild goose chase around New York City where various government agencies were visited in an effort to pull a legal permit for Madison Rising’s “Take Back Wall Street” concert in Zuccotti Park on Tuesday, December 6, 2011. Madison Rising endeavored to celebrate capitalism with a concert and to thank the hard working women and men of the NYPD, FDNY, and on Wall Street. After finally ending up at Brookfield Office Properties (owner of Zuccotti Park), Madison Rising was ultimately denied a permit on the day Third Eye Blind performed to Occupy in Zuccotti Park without a permit. Madison Rising, a rock band that released its debut album last month, is fueled by an eternal gratitude and love of our country. “Right now, ignorance and apathy are running wild amongst our citizens. Right now, we need to get people thinking about issues that really matter. We hope Madison Rising will inspire that,” said Dave Bray, Lead Vocalist, Military Veteran. You think this will get any media coverage? I wonder what would happen if this was Lady GaGa…..
Final Thought: “Our kids are going to be fine,” Obama told supporters at a campaign event last night. “And I always tell Malia and Sasha, look, you guys, I don’t worry about you . . . they’re on a path that is going to be successful, even if the country as a whole is not successful.” Can you imagine if Sarah Palin had said that???????
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON – REMEMBER IN 2012!!
ALOHA, ALL! So here’s something that grew during 0bama’s tenure: THE FOOD STAMP PROGRAM. Under Barry, the number of food stamp recipients has risen 39%. The number is about 61% higher than it was four years ago. And about 67% of the USDA’s budget is spent on the food stamp program. Ah, but those nasty Republicans want to do this: The Republicans’ 2012 budget plan proposes changing SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) from an entitlement to a block-grant program that would be tailored for each individual state, much like their proposal for Medicaid. States would no longer receive open-ended subsidies and the aid would be contingent on work or job training. It would also limit funding for the program. Wanna bet that the Dems use this as another weapon in their class warfare approach? So along with ads showing granny thrown over a cliff, we’ll see ads with a Paul Ryan look-alike taking food out of a kid’s mouth. They are shameless, after all. Congress Mulls Cuts to Food Stamps Program Amid Record Number of Recipients – The Note Oh yeah – you might recall that Newt Gingrich was accused of being racist when he referred to Barry as “The Food Stamp President” recently. Well….looks like Newt was right about this one.
Earth to Wasserman-Schultz: Attn: Wasserman Schultz – Is an Illegal Alien’s Murder of a Houston Cop a crime? – Updated | All American Blogger ”So I have to ask Debbie, if an illegal immigrant kills a Houston police officer, are they guilty of that crime? Or do they get a pass on it also? The reason I ask is because one just did. It was the sixth straight officer killed in Houston to be killed by an “undocumented American.”
Another lefty named by Barry. Obama Commerce pick sets up showdown on trade with Senate GOP – The Hill’s Blog Briefing Room “With gas prices at nearly $4 a gallon, it’s certainly eye-catching that President Obama has nominated a founder of an organization that opposes efforts to increase domestic oil production to serve as the nation’s key advocate for our economic interests,” Darrell Issa said in a statement. “The nomination of John Bryson to lead the Department of Commerce seems deeply out of touch with our current energy challenge.” Oh yeah – Bryson wants Cap and Trade legislation because it’s a good way to “hide” a carbon tax from the public. Obama’s Commerce Nominee: Cap and Trade Good for ‘Hiding’ Carbon Taxes – Common American Journal That’s all I needed to hear!

LOVE this guy! GOP Lawmaker Turns Down White House Meeting: “I Won’t Be Lectured to” By Failed President | The Gateway Pundit “I have respectfully declined the president’s invitation to the White House today,” Rep. Jeff Landry (La.) said in a statement. “I don’t intend to spend my morning being lectured to by a president whose failed policies have put our children and grandchildren in a huge burden of debt.” WOO HOO!! Paul Ryan also told Barry on Wednesday that “Leadership comes from the top” and that he didn’t appreciate all the Democrat “Mediscare” tactics. Ryan got a standing ovation from all the Republicans (I have a feeling Barry stayed seated.) One freshman lawmaker is a quick learner “I could tell the president was nervous, because when he’s nervous, he talks on and on. Everybody else he gave about a three- or four-minute answer to. To Paul Ryan it was about 20 minutes,” freshman Rep. James Lankford (R-Okla.) said. LOL!! Ryan to Obama: ‘Leadership should come from the top’ – TheHill.com
“I WILL NOT YIELD MY TIME” Why is Paul Ryan the only one going after the Dems’ lies? Great video of him from the House floor Wednesday:

Doofus of the Week Award goes to Martin Bashir: MSNBC Anchor: Palin‘s Use of American Flag Could be ’Breach of Federal Law’ | The Blaze Bashir said: ”In fact, the whole thing could be in breach of a federal law because the United States Flag Code establishes important rules for the use and display of the stars and stripes, the flag of the United States. Under standards of respect and etiquette, it’s made clear that the flag of the United States should never be used for any advertising purpose whatsoever.” But it’s OK for your comrade Bill Ayers to stand on it? Just shut yer pie hole!

ALOHA, ALL! As many of you know, my father-in-law was a World War II fighter pilot. At age 95, Dad is a member of that “Greatest Generation” who fought so bravely to preserve our freedom during a difficult time. (Reality check: can you imagine what our lives would be like today if they hadn’t put their lives on the line?) They didn’t ask questions, whine, or shirk from duty – they just did it. I know all HDR readers admire and respect these veterans for their service and their sacrifices, and here’s one way to give back: Honor Flight: The Greatest Generation’s Last Wish | The Foundry ”The Honor Flight Network exists to grant them one last wish and final honor before they go. The program transports World War II veterans to Washington, D.C., free of charge to see the National World War II Memorial for the first—and likely—last time.” I know I usually report all the bad things happening in our country, but this is something to feel good about. It’s one effort we can support and be proud of. God bless all our military men and women!
And it turns out there will be a documentary released later this year about Honor Flight and these living heroes. Be sure to watch this trailer about it – they want to get 5 million viewers by Memorial Day: Show Your Thanks to World War II Vets by Watching This 2-min Video SHARE THIS WITH EVERYONE YOU KNOW! (Thanks to Ruth for the link. She sent this to me not knowing I was going to write about Honor Flight…aren’t some things meant to be?)

Nonsense to the South. Desert Pupfish Forces Border Agents to Patrol on Foot – HUMAN EVENTS ”Federal agents must abandon their vehicles and chase drug smugglers and illegal aliens on foot through 40 acres near the Mexican border because of a pond that is home to the endangered desert pupfish.” HUH???? SO I GUESS 0BAMA WAS BEING LITERAL WHEN HE SAID WE HAVE BOOTS ON THE GROUND PROTECTING THE BORDER. RIDICULOUS!
But what about the North? Canadian Border Bigger Terror Threat Than Mexican Border, Says Border Patrol Chief | CNSnews.com ”(Alan) Bersin (from the US Customs and Border Protection agency) attributed the situation, in part, to the fact that the U.S. and Canada do not share information about people placed on their respective “no-fly” lists. As a result, individuals deemed a threat who fly into one country may then cross the land border into the other.” ARE YOU KIDDING ME??????? Hey Janet Napolitano – what the heck are you doing?
0bama throws Israel under the bus – again.

WAKE UP!! Here’s Krauthammer’s analysis of 0bama’s speech: The news in Obama’s speech – The Washington Post But my favorite response of all is from Rep Allen West: Congressman Allen West Response to President Barack Obama’s Call for a Two State Solution in Israel ”Today’s endorsement by President Barack Obama of the creation of a Hamas-led Palestinian state based on the pre-1967 borders, signals the most egregious foreign policy decision his administration has made to date, and could be the beginning of the end as we know it for the Jewish state.” GO WEST!!!!!

ANOTHER ONE WHO’S DONE? Election 2012: Generic Presidential Ballot – Rasmussen Reports™ ”The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that a Generic Republican currently earns support from 45% of Likely Voters across the nation, while the president attracts 43% of the vote.” Hey Barry/Barack, can you see 2012 from your house yet?
How dare they criticize Barry/Barack?!?! White House freezes out Boston Herald over editorial? « Hot Air ”The White House shouldn’t decide on media access based on which outlets will paint him in the best possible light — and those media outlets that do get selected on that basis should really be the first to object, as it reflects very badly on their objectivity. But it’s perhaps even worse that the Obama administration feels that they can publicly manipulate their media coverage in such a ham-handed manner and think that they could get away with it.” Do I hear a “yes we can” coming from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue?
This one is really disturbing. USS Cesar Chavez? Why Not the USS Saul Alinsky? | NewsReal Blog ”The decision to name a Navy ship after this radical is remarkable not only because President Obama’s teleprompter has the phrase “Yes, we can!” burnt into it from the phrase’s overuse, but because the far-left leader was a disciple of communist sympathizer Saul Alinsky.” How about a USS Mao next?
Why you should be concerned about Goodwin Liu: Cloture vote scheduled for Goodwin ‘Reparations’ Liu’s nomination – Common American Journal He wants reparations for slavery…believes in a “living” Constitution…supports racial quotas…he’s about as far left as you can get.

Final Thought: “Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction.
