ALOHA, ALL!! Surprise, surprise – James Holmes, the creep who shot up a Colorado movie theater, may have been a member of Occupy Wall Street? Let’s turn the tables on the lamestream media, shall we? They claimed Holmes was a member of the Tea Party (in reality, they had the wrong James Holmes.) But there’s more circumstantial “evidence” that Holmes belonged to the most violent wing of the OWS movement, the Black Bloc (did you know they had such divisions in their organization? But no worries, Pelosi and Obama think they’re just great!) These are the thugs who wear the dark clothing, ski masks, bullet -proof gear and more while destroying property and beating people. Holmes dressed like this when he shot up the movie theater. They conceal their identities. Gee, why aren’t they proud of themselves? And Black Bloc members have an intense hatred for cops (hmm…didn’t Holmes booby trap his apartment to kill cops?) More info: Aurora Shooter Militant Black Bloc Member? and Colorado Shooter Active With Occupy Wall Street UPDATE: Any reference to James Homes has been removed from the Occupy Wall Street and Adbusters websites. Here’s a video of what the Black Bloc is all about:
This begs two questions: Do you think ABC News will report Holmes’ OWS similarities as “being of interest” ? After all, he sure looked and acted like the Black Bloc OWS criminals. Oh yeah, do you think Brian Ross will be fired for associating an innocent man with a murder rampage?
We all know the answers to both those questions

Great editorial from Thomas Sowell: Facts Are Futile Against The Advocates of Gun Control ”The real problem, both in discussions of mass shootings and in discussions of gun control, is that too many people are too committed to a vision to allow mere facts to interfere with their beliefs, and the sense of superiority that those beliefs give them.”

ALOHA, ALL!! If you’ve never heard of Alfonzo Rachel (“Zo”) he’s a true American treasure. Zo is a Black conservative who does videos for Pajamas Media. In this one, he talks about how it’s OK to spew hatred against a president if you’re a left-winger, but if you’re on the right and say anything that could be construed as violent, you get a visit from the Secret Service. Case in point: Ted Nugent. Uncle Ted said something recently that was controversial. And it did push the envelope. And the Secret Service were on him like white on rice. But as Zo points out, what about all the horrible, violent things that were said about Bush? *cricket sounds* Check it out:
BREAKING NEWS! Axelrod to be fired for inciting violence. Well, maybe not: GOP Controlled by Far Right “Reign of Terror”
Jon Corzine, crook and FOB (Friend of Barry.) Amid Scandal, Corzine Is Among Obama’s Top Bundlers ”Corzine, the former New Jersey senator and governor, and former head of Goldman Sachs, is among 127 individuals (dubbed “volunteer fundraisers” in the parlance used by Obama’s Chicago campaign) credited with raising more than $500,000 through the first quarter of 2012.”
Looking forward to this one! Occupy Unmasked “It’s young, it’s spontaneous. It’s going to be effective” Nancy Pelosi. ”I’m so impressed by what I’m seeing here.” Michael Moore. Far out, idiots.
This guy would have approved of the OWS crowd, too. Ira Einhorn, Earth Day’s Dirty Secret ”You won’t find Ira Einhorn’s name listed in any of the Earth Day promotional literature, as the organizers have taken great pains to distance themselves from this man, at least since he became better known for composting his girlfriend in a trunk in his closet for a couple of years in the late 1970s.”
And what has environmental extremism given us? Here’s a great video (Shaka to Scott) Free Market America is responsible for this video. They have an excellent site dedicated to defending the principles of economic freedom against the threat of environmental extremism. Go HERE. Now!
This site has been criticized for being “racist.” Obama Isn’t Working It was claimed the title presented a stereotype of Black men (i.e. “not working.”) Seems like everything is “racist” these days. Whatever. There’s tons of good information and resources on there. Then again, I’m a racist according to that dopey blogger in Maryland so it figures I’d like it.
And did you know it’s racist to suspend a black kid from school? Just ask Jesse Jackson: School Suspension is Racial Profiling, Caused Trayvon’s Death Time for Jackson, Sharpton and their race-baiting ilk to get real jobs.

ALOHA, ALL!!! Yes, it seems we’ve been here before. A hostage crisis, a feckless president, a powder-keg situation. How will it end? While that remains to be seen, we know that the current situation is dangerous. We know that the United Sates, under this president, has lost respect around the world. We know that Americans in many foreign countries aren’t safe. Heck, some are being held hostage and Barry is doing nothing….nada….zero zilch. How will it end? That’s up to us in November.

And there’s an “Anti-Dimwit” on the horizon, too!!! CPAC interview: Hey, who wants to fire Debbie Downer? « Hot Air ”Yesterday at CPAC, we had a number of technical issues on Blogger Row, which almost kept me from interviewing the impressive Republican challenger to Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Karen Harrington.”
The Tipping Point is here. Dependence on Government Highest in History ”The Heritage Foundation’s 2012 Index of Dependence on Government shows an alarming trend under the Obama Administration of a level of dependence on our government that has never been seen before. Today, a full 70 percent of the federal government’s budget goes to pay for housing, food, income, student aid, or other assistance, with recipients ranging from college students to retirees to welfare beneficiaries.”
No surprise here. Occupy Wall Street Now Promoting the Weather Underground – Common American Journal ”Occupy Albany has announced an event in March called, The Weather Underground Meets Occupy Wall Street….to celebrate U.S. political prisoner David Gilbert’s new memoir, “Love and Struggle.” Gilbert is currently serving time in the Auburn Correctional Facility and is described as “an American radical leftist organizer and activist.”
Look out Dennis the Menace – here comes Joe the Plumber! http://www.joeforcongress2012.com/ ”I am running for Congress in the 9th District of Ohio. And I’m asking you to stand with me. Enough is enough. No matter which side of the political fence you stand on, stealing is wrong.” Good luck, Joe! Hubby’s cousin ran against Kucinich last time and almost pulled it off.
UPDATE: In the last HDR I wrote about the changes in combat pay. An alert reader and military member sent me this explanation: ”On “combat pay”: The change simply says that an individual gets paid only for the days they are in the hostile-fire zone. In Kosovo, we had people get sent down from USAREUR (U.S. ARmy in EURope) in Germany for, oh, a single day per month, and then collect hostile-fire pay for the whole month. It was not exactly a morale-builder that people could do that. All in all, it’s not a bad change.” So if the military is OK with this, then I am too. At least for now. But why do I not trust a single thing this administration does?
Don’t mess around with those nuns! (I know from experience) TV Network Started by Cloistered Nun Sues Sebelius | CNSnews.com ” Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN)–founded in 1981 by Mother M.

Hey Mother A – why not Nancy Nitwit, too?!? Or at least a few smacks with a ruler
BREAKING NEWS – OBAMA ANNOUNCES “ACCOMODATION.” Obama to Announce Contraception Rule ‘Accommodation’ for Religious Organizations – ABC News ”The move, based on state models, will almost certainly not satisfy bishops and other religious leaders since it will preserve the goal of women employees having their birth control fully covered by health insurance.” Notice how they can’t even say the word “compromise”???? Yeah….the Great Uniter.

ALOHA, ALL!! Remember how Barry claimed in his SOTU speech that he was on target to reach his goal of doubling exports? (I know….who was paying attention?) Anyhow, when I heard it I thought to myself, “export what?” He never explained what those exports were, hoping we’d all think it was cars or clothing or widgets. But guess what’s propelling Barry’s export success? Oil. Our own oil that we could be using for ourselves is going to other countries at a record pace. Check this out: Export growth on track to meet Obama goal – Economy – NewsObserver.com ”Sales of petroleum products also hit a record of about $90 billion in 2011, making fuel the country’s single-biggest export, and the United States a net exporter of fuel for the first time in six decades.” Are you kidding me????? Just one more example of how 0bama wants energy prices to “necessarily skyrocket.” (Shaka to Rose Marie for the link.)
To wit: Harper Builds Oil Link With China After Obama Keystone ‘Slap’ – Common American Journal “The Keystone decision was a slap in the face to Canada and it’s making Canadians rethink the relationship,” said Jack Mintz, head of the School of Public Policy at the University of Calgary. “Harper probably wants to put out a sign that we’re open for business for Asia.”
And have you heard how we’re “helping” Brazil? Obama’s $2 billion to Brazil ends up helping send oil to China « Hot Air ”We apparently can subsidize government controlled oil companies in foreign countries, but not here.”
CBO report not rosy. CBO: Taxes Will ‘Shoot Up by More Than 30 Percent’ Over Next 2 Years | CNSnews.com ”The U.S. economy, CBO projects, will perform “below its potential” for another six years and unemployment will remain above 7 percent for another three.”
But it’s rosy if you work for the government. CBO: Federal workers better compensated than in private sector – The Hill’s On The Money ”The Congressional Budget Office found Monday that federal workers are compensated 16 percent more than comparable private-sector workers on average.” More from The Heritage Foundation: Federal Workers Overpaid, and CBO Agrees ” Salaries and benefits–for identical jobs–are 30 percent to 40 percent higher in the federal government than in the private sector.”
BTW…headed to a Heritage Foundation dinner tonight with Dinesh D’Souza speaking!
That’s it….the CBO must be racist! Racist Congressional Budget Office Declares Obamanomics a Flop | All American Blogger ”I know I’m at risk of being called a racist, but since I am a white man and therefore racist, I don’t really hesitate in saying that the fault lies at the feet of the president and his far left economic philosophy.” LOVE the sarcasm in this piece!!!
Did I say….it’s getting interesting? How Obama’s Eligibility Fiasco Poses Trouble For Dems | Western Journalism.com ”If Georgia’s Secretary of State says Obama is off the ballot, it will set in motion a scary domino effect that will devastate down ballot Democrats.” Then there’s this: Obama eligibility challenges spread to 6 states ”Whatever the outcome in Georgia, the issue is gaining traction in other states, too, including Alabama, Tennessee, Arizona, New Hampshire, and even Illinois, Obama’s home political base.
Romney wins Florida, Newt & Santorum vow to fight on. Let’s hope they listen to Dick Morris.
TMI! TMI! FLOTUS $50k shopping spree shuts down Madison Avenue. Update: WH says nonsense – Common American Journal ”First Lady Michelle Obama has apparently given British lingerie label Agent Provocateur a boost after a lavish spending spree last year.” YIKES! This story may or may not be true…but I don’t like the visual.
Some good news. House GOP closer to vote on making English the official language – TheHill.com ”Republicans believe a vote on the bipartisan measure would put the Obama administration on the defensive. President Obama voted against the effort when he served in the Senate.”

HDR NEWS ALERT – FINALLY A CANDIDATE WHO GETS IT!
Vermin Supreme promises free ponies for everyone and has a zombie energy program. Even though these stances were compelling, I was unsure because of his affiliation with the Democrat Party and his support of the OWS crowd. Then, I learned he was for mandatory toothbrushing!!! Woo Hoo – you had me at “gingivitis” Mr. Supreme!
ALOHA, ALL! So here we are in 2012….FINALLY! I only made one resolution for this year, and that is to do all I can to get Barack 0bama out of the White House. He left Hawaii Monday and isn’t’ wasting any time getting back to work – campaigning: Obama Returns to Campaign Trail After Hawaii Vacation: Next Stop, Ohio We don’t need a perpetual campaigner - we need a leader in the White House.
He vants to be alone. I’m sure the NYT thought this piece would be another of their complimentary diatribes about Barry, but it’s had the opposite effect. Do we really want a President who “keeps Congress and official Washington at arm’s length”? NYT: Obama’s kind of a White House recluse « Hot Air He’d rather campaign with TOTUS as his BFF, speaking in front of all his adoring fans than do his real job. Hubby wrote the following letter to the Star Advertiser about the story, but (surprise!) they didn’t publish it. Probably didn’t want to upset Barry while he was on vacation here. After all, he needed to golf, work out and eat shave ice:
With regard to your front page report (12/29) of President Obama’s isolation in office: A business for which I consult once hired a highly-touted “relationship manager” to lead its sales team. We soon learned that he didn’t like the salesmen and product managers and was overtly avoiding them. Such similar attitudes and hermit-like behavior may help explain President Obama’s inability to lead Congress. In our case, sales foundered until the bosses replaced this individual with someone who was a better fit for the job.

The call themselves the Patriotic Millionaires for Fiscal Strength. The idea is that they believe they’re under taxed, and want the government to take more from them to fund the government.
So the folks at the Daily Caller talked to some of the “activists” and asked them if they’d be willing to make a donation to the US Treasury on the spot. And, showing what utter hypocrites they are, they refused. Because it’s not about them paying more. It’s about the government forcing other people to pay more.”Say Anything » Patriotic Millionaires For Higher Taxes Turn Out Not To Be So Patriotic After All » Say Anything

ALOHA, ALL!! Surprise! The so-called “Super” Committee failed to come to an agreement over how to solve the debt crisis. Did anyone doubt that it was set up to fail from the beginning? (If you did then I have some beautiful ocean-front property to sell you in Hawaii for $100.) So now what? It’s obvious that the plan to include the automatic defense cuts was no fluke – Barry and his comrades want to gut our military. (If you doubt that, I have some beautiful ocean-front property to sell you in Hawaii for $1000. Yes, the price is going up.) In the days to come, we’ll learn more about what went on at those ”Super” meetings, but here’s a guess: Dems wanted to raise taxes and not touch entitlements. In fact, were entitlements even on the table with either party? Here’s the best article I’ve seen so far on this “Super” failure (thanks to Lee for the link): Defenseless: America in the 21st Century And lest you forget:

The move was taken in deference to environmentalists, on the pretext of studying the effects of hydraulic fracturing.”
Once again, it pays to be a FOB (Friend of Barry). Buffett may benefit from Keystone XL pipeline delay – Common American Journal ”Killing the Keystone XL pipeline may help one of the world’s richest men get richer. North Dakota’s booming oil fields will now grow more dependent on a railroad the president’s economic guru just bought.”
This Russian news reporter speaks for a lot of us!
Turkey Talk. I got this from a friend who is not a goof-ball. So be aware when buying that Thanksgiving bird: Please be aware that Butterball turkeys are halal certified. We received a turkey from Bob’s employer that is a Butterball & Bob saw something about Butterball being halal certified. He went to the Butterball website & it is true. We returned the turkey for a generic. Publix refused to take the turkey back for an exchange so her went to Winn Dixie & they willingly exchanged it for us.
Halal certified means that when the turkey is killed the butcher must be Islam sane & utter worship words to Allah that I do not know how to spell. Then a muslim prayer must be said over the carcasses as well. Not sure how to spell- a bismuh? The throat is cut- carotids, jugulars & trachea all @ once. Not to gross anyone out, but I am finding more & more halal certified meat @ the store & I refuse to buy it. I refuse to give retailers any money that participate in this if I can help it.
Check out this article from Pamela Geller: Articles: Happy Halal Thanksgiving. Indeed. I found this site: IFANCA: Halal Food Certification ”Welcome to IFANCA, the leading Halal-food certification organization in North America. Halal certification gives companies access to Muslim consumers. IFANCA’s Halal Symbol (the Crescent ‘M’) helps Muslims in choosing their goods, assured that what they are buying is Halal without doubt.” And ”Halal Certification is the process of having a qualified independent third party supervise the production of consumables, attesting that they were produced in conformity with the preparation and ingredient standards of the halal lifestyle.” Seriously? What is the “halal lifestyle”? From now on, I am boycotting ANY products that have this certification. Look for this:

ALOHA ALL!! Like you, I’ve heard the expression about “jumping the shark” numerous times in the past. Interesting that it originates from the entertainment industry and initially was meant to describe a TV show that had lost its luster: Jumping the shark – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Well, it looks like the absurd reality show that is Occupy Wall Street has indeed jumped the shark. OWS has not only jumped the shark, but has been eaten alive and self-lysed. Bit the dust. They tried to shut down Wall Street yesterday, but 200 of them were arrested instead. What a bunch of idiotic, useless lefties. In reality, I was hoping the (bowel) movement known as Occupy Wall Street would go on a bit longer, disrupting everyday life to an even greater degree. Then Americans would realize that they were either with this group of anarchists or completely against them. No namby-pamby “I’m not sure” as an option. Here’s something much more productive than OWS – how about a video of Fonzie really jumping the shark? Will he make it? Does Joanie love Chachi? Does Zuccotti Park smell worse than a New York City subway station?
More dust biting. Beacon Power follows Solyndra into bankruptcy « Hot Air ”At the end of last month, I wrote about Beacon Power, a green-tech company that received over a hundred million dollars in taxpayer-backed credit but who teetered on the edge of bankruptcy. Yesterday, Beacon tipped over, filing for protection from its creditors — and potentially taking $43 million in taxpayer dollars with it.”
Meanwhile, back on the newly discovered planet “Buffoonery.” Maxine Waters on Occupy Wall Street | Video | TheBlaze.com ”For Congresswoman Maxine Waters, the string of deaths and crimes that have occurred across the Occupy movement nationwide is nothing more than “life” and “it happens.” She also said the incidents are merely a “distraction” from the Occupiers’ ultimate goal.”

Sure wish it was Cut, Cap & Balance. GOP House Will Vote on Balanced Budget Amendment That Permits Unlimited Federal Spending ”House Republicans are set to vote later this week on a balanced budget amendment (BBA) that would not cap federal spending as a percentage of GDP or require a supermajority to raise taxes.” The Blue Dog Democrats are on board: Blue Dogs break with Dems on balanced-budget amendment – TheHill.com And it looks like The Heritage Foundation agrees with me – where are the spending cuts?
