ALOHA, ALL!! I haven’t blogged lately because I’ve been on the road again. Seems like life gets in the way of blogging sometimes. One of my trips involved a visit to New York City – a great place to be during Thanksgiving and the lead-in to Christmas. I enjoyed my share of shopping, (mostly window shopping) eating and sightseeing. A great escape. But it was in the car ride to Newark airport, returning home, when I was brought back to reality. The driver was originally from Belarus. Since hubby was a Russian history major, he enjoyed chatting with Gregory. Gregory has been in the US for over 20 years. His perspectives on the recent election were interesting and insightful. Gregory mentioned several times that the Republican party was run by “incompetent nincompoops” for letting the Democrats frame who they are. He thought Obama’s re-election was a “given” judging by how the GOP handled their messaging to the electorate. Interesting indeed, coming from an individual who has experienced one-sided messaging in an oppressive society. While hubby and I didn’t agree with Gregory on everything, we found a lot of common ground. Mainly, that the GOP needs to wake up and start creating their own narrative. We’ll see how things spin out with the “fiscal cliff” situation. Who will do a better job of messaging to the masses?
Another Interesting Russian Perspective: Obama’s Soviet Mistake “Putin in 2009 outlined his strategy for economic success. Alas, poor Obama did the opposite but nevertheless was re-elected. Bye, bye Miss American Pie. The Communists have won in America with Obama but failed miserably in Russia with Zyuganov who only received 17% of the vote. Vladimir Putin was re-elected as President keeping the NWO order out of Russia while America continues to repeat the Soviet mistake.”
Obama’s Still Campaigning: Obama Hits The Road To Rally Support For His Tax Plan “I’ve been keeping my own naughty and nice list for Washington,” he told workers and others gathered at a plant that makes K’NEX toys. If Republicans hold middle-class tax cuts hostage to preserve them for the rich, he said, then everyone could end up paying more next year. “That’s sort of like the lump of coal you get for Christmas. That’s a Scrooge Christmas.” I repeat: who will do a better job of messaging to the masses?
Obama’s Still Golfing: As Fiscal Cliff Looms, Obama Returns To Golf Course with Bill Clinton “Obama and Clinton last golfed together in September 2011 before the election. As Ryan Lizza reported earlier this year, the golf game symbolized the beginning of Obama’s special relationship with the former president.”
Why Can’t They Just Do This? Six Fixes To America’s Fiscal Crisis “Elected officials in Washington keep enacting short-term patches to keep the government running, which is not a real solution. We need to reform the programs that are causing the runaway spending and deficits today and in the years to come—the large, lumbering entitlement programs of Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.”
LOL – check out liar *OOPS* I mean candidate Obama in 2008
BREAKING NEWS UPDATE: House GOP Makes $2.2 Trillion Debt Counteroffer To Obama “House Republican leaders have made a counteroffer to President Obama in the fiscal cliff negotiations, proposing to cut $2.2 trillion with a combination of spending cuts, entitlement reforms and $800 billion in new tax revenue.”
Alanis Morrisette To Play Israeli Concert Despite Protests “Singer Alanis Morissette will grace an Israeli concert stage tonight, a simple act which artists like Stevie Wonder have turned down in recent weeks for political reasons.”
Obama Slaps States That Don’t Comply with Obamacare “Residents of states that refuse to set up health insurance exchanges under Obamacare are set to be hit with higher premiums under new rules announced by the Health and Human Services Department.”
Gitmo North Returns: Obama’s Shady Prison Deal “If you thought President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder had given up on closing Guantanamo Bay and bringing jihadists to American soil, think again. Two troubling developments on the Gitmo front should have every American on edge.”
Residents Alerted To Obama’s Hawaiian Holiday Plans “While many residents welcome the First Family, others are disheartened by the restrictions put on air, water and road travel while the President and family are in town, especially because it is the holiday season and many families on vacation want to use their boats or surf and paddle in the welcoming ocean waves fronting the Kailua homes. In addition, the President’s caravan of at least 22 vehicles including an ambulance can easily overwhelm the community that typically has single lane streets. Adding to the controversy surrounding the President’s visit is the cost of the trip.” Oh. Joy.
And because we all could use a laugh…“PJTV – your antidote to the obsolete media”
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON!!
(To my faithful readers – thanks for your support! I won’t be blogging as often during the Holiday season. I still need to finish that book!! But rest assured I’ll be back in full force in 2013. And yes…the snow is back! So those white dots you see on your screen are supposed to be there.)
ALOHA, ALL!! It’s official: Obama and his minions have lost it. They are getting so desperate to win this election that they will say anything, no matter how outrageous. On Thursday, Obama’s deputy campaign manager, Stephanie Cutter, accused Mit Romney of committing a felony. It all has to do with paperwork that allegedly states Romney was with Bain Capital longer than he claims. Cutter said that Romney may have committed a felony if he misrepresented his role at Bain on SEC documents: Presidential Rivals Trade Charges of Lying, Romney Demands Apology Over ‘Felony’ Remark In reality, Romney left Bain rather hastily to take over the Salt Lake City Olympics. it took awhile for the paperwork to reflect the changes in his involvement. Even the lib Washington Post gave this charge Three Pinnochios. Hot Air adds this: ”In other words, the accusation that Romney is an uncharged felon is pure demagogic tripe — which Team Obama seems anxious to deploy in large quantities these days…Don’t hold your breath, but do take heart — if this is all they have left in July, Team Obama is completely out of gas.” Team Obama has reached a new low. And they keep shooting blanks. Since Barry hasn’t denounced any of this nonsense, then he must approve of it. As Michelle Malkin says: Not Such A ‘Nice Guy’ Anymore, Huh?
Meanwhile - Obama’s Imperial Presidency Guts Welfare Reform ”Not content to stop at rewriting immigration policy, education policy and energy policy, yesterday, President Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released an official policy directive rewriting the welfare reform law of 1996. The new policy guts the federal work requirements that were the foundation of the Clinton-era reform.” WHY ARE WE LETTING THEM GET AWAY WITH THIS????????
The Heritage Foundation has a great overview and fact sheet of welfare reform and its impacts: Welfare Reform – The Next Steps
Here’s Your LOL For The Day: JAY CARNEY SAYS THEY ARE SO TRANSPARENT!
OBAMA CONTINUES HIS CLASS WARFARE MEME. After all, taxing the rich will solve all our problems, right? Click on this link: Soak The Rich You’ll be able to tax any rich industry you want! You can even increase the tax burden on all of them! You can be Preezy!!!! It analyzes how having them pay “their fair share” makes a difference in the reducing the deficit. You may be surprised……BTW, how much of their “fair share” do the rich pay in taxes? Check this out: CBO – The Wealthy Pay 70% Of Taxes
Class warfare rhetoric – an analysis from Howie (Shaka to you!): Do the “rich” really take advantage of the “poor” or are the “poor” enabling others to determine their existence? The message from many politicians is that the “rich” take advantage of the “poor.” It takes a wise person to see otherwise.
The “powerful” use the “poor” to gain and maintain their power over the “poor.” As long as the gap between the “rich” and “poor” continues to increase, and the number of “poor” continue to increase; the “powerful” (not necessarily the rich) will continue to promote the message of “class warfare.”
The reason behind the message: If the “powerful” can eliminate the “rich” then what do we have left? That’s right. Only the “poor” or people that are dependent upon the “powerful” for survival and existence.
We as Americans need to see the forest through the trees. Use common sense and fully understand who or what controls our lives. Are we going to be self-determining or are we going to let others determine who we are?
Quick…What’s This Picture?

It’s fitting to honor George Washington, the Father of Our Country, today. He was an extraordinary individual (and my favorite President.) To realize the sacrifices and incredible leader he was, one needs to put into perspective the times in which he lived. Washington could have lived his life very comfortably under British rule. He was a wealthy man (gee….a 1 percenter??) with a beautiful home and lots of land. But his country needed him and he stepped forward. This video from Dick Morris explains how Washington was a true hero and leader, not just in ways we commonly know:
And this article from The Heritage Foundation explains why it’s ridiculous that we no longer celebrate Washington’s Birthday as a singular holiday: George Washington and the Real Meaning of Presidents Day ”George Washington, the “indispensable man” of the Revolution who was rightly extolled for being “first in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen,” has now been lumped together with the likes of James Buchanan, Jimmy Carter, Franklin Pierce and John Tyler.”
God bless you, President Washington! Your beloved country is going through a rough spot right now. We’ll do our best to set it right again.
Washington would not approve. Democrat Blocks Rand Paul’s Attempt to Cut Aid to Egypt Because of Its ‘Insolence and Disregard’ | CNSNews.com ”A senior Democratic senator Thursday shot down an attempt by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) to call up an amendment cutting off all U.S. aid to Egypt unless the authorities allow Americans being detained there to leave the country.” (Hint: the “senior Democratic senator” is from CA and has the initials “B.B.” she should be added to the picture above.)
ICYMI: House votes to expand drilling, approve Keystone XL – Common American Journal ”House lawmakers on Thursday approved a plan to authorize the Keystone XL pipeline and expand drilling offshore and in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. The 237-187 victory for Republican leaders…”
Connecticut?? Taxpayers Paying For Illegal Immigrants in Connecticut ”Generally when you think of illegal immigrants you tend to think of the southern states from Florida across to California. One of the last states you may think of as having a problem with illegal immigrants is Connecticut, but guess again.”
Well, well, well!! Obama Contradicted: HHS Banned Determining Whether Mandate Was ‘Cost Effective’ | CNSNews.com ”There would be no consideration of cost effectiveness. That was the explicit condition that the Department of Health and Human Services imposed on the panel of health-care experts it commissioned to develop the “preventive services” mandate that will require virtually all health-insurance plans in the United States to cover sterilizations and contraceptives—including those that cause abortions.”
Then there’s this: As Obama pushes new regulations, UK eyes privatizing its health care – Common American Journal ”Filmmaker Michael Moore glorified the United Kingdom’s National Health Service in his 2007 documentary ”Sicko,” making a cult film argument that socialized medicine works. But Prime Minister David Cameron, the Tory MP who heads a coalition government in England, is apparently not a Moore fan: He is working to partially privatize the NHS, beginning a massive outsourcing of medical services to private health care providers throughout the U.K.”
Looking forward to this one! Check out the comments from the OWS…yeah, these miscreants represent 99% of the country.

Remember…WWWD? (What Would Washington Do?)
ALOHA, ALL!! It’s been an interesting couple of days. I attended a Heritage Foundation event last night with the incredible Dinesh D’Souza as the speaker. I participated in a blogger conference call yesterday morning with members of the House Financial Services Committee. And I attended a luncheon yesterday where Senatorial candidate Linda Lingle gave the keynote address. (More on all these below.) But the one story that keeps rising to the top (or more appropriately, falling into the sewer of political filth) is Eric Holder’s “Fast and Furious” fiasco. Holder has no shame….he has lied and stonewalled about this botched operation for a full year and now it looks like it’s all finally catching up with him. He may very well be held in contempt of Congress: House Considers Contempt Charge Against Holder in Fast and Furious Case Why should Holder be held in contempt? Check out this graphic (click on it to enlarge it):
So out of 80,000 documents related to Fast & Furious, Holder has released only 6,000. Investigators have been denied access to 48 of 70 officials involved in the operation – denied access??? And Holder has ignored – ignored? – 66% of subpoenas. Why are we even talking about this? Holder needs to be kicked out of office immediately! This will blow you away:
And you know this is coming – again: “This is a way to get at the president because of the way I can be identified with him, both due to the nature of our relationship and, you know, the fact that we’re both African-American.” —-Attorney General Eric Holder, explaining what he believes to be the motives of “extreme factions” in their efforts to hold him accountable for the Justice Department’s “Fast and Furious” debacle in an interview with the New York Times. Yep, good ole Eric will play the race card once he gets the book thrown at him. Unethical Quote of the Month: Attorney General Eric Holder
The hardest working committees in government. I mentioned I had a blogger call with some of the folks on the House Financial Services Committee. They and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee (the one investigating Fast & Furious) have their hands full with all the monkey business going on with this administration and its cronies. The topic today was MF Global – turns out they had a “break the glass” plan to pull the wool over people’s eyes: MF Hearings Focus on Public Face, Internal Worry – WSJ.com
There was a surprise question in yesterday’s conference call. Cathy McMorris Rodgers | Vice Presidential Surprise | The Daily Caller ”The daughter of produce farmers who operated a fruit stand, she was the first member of her family to attend college. She earned her MBA from the University of Washington in 2002. By the age of 24, she was a member of the state House of Representatives. Married to a retired U.S. Navy commander, McMorris Rodgers is also one of only eight women to have ever given birth while serving in Congress, and the only woman who has done it twice.” Can you say accomplished? How about multi-tasker? I could tell by her reaction she was surprised by the question, but it sure sounds like a good one to me!
Hawaii might elect a Female Republican Senator! Yes, this is big news, folks. There is a good chance Hawaii could have a Republican Senator for the first time in 35 years. Yes, you read that correctly. And its first female Senator. Hawaii’s last Republican Senator was Hiram Fong, who was voted out of office in 1977. Linda Lingle, former Hawaii Governor, is running to fill the seat of retiring Senator Dan Akaka (he’s been there since 1976 and is 86 years old.) Keep your fingers crossed, folks. You may think this place is paradise, but believe me, it’s far from perfect.
Dinesh D’Souza! If you ever get a chance to hear him speak, go. His book, “The Roots of Obama’s Rage” was a long-time best seller (which irritated the White House no end.) Dinesh is brilliant and he has 0bama’s motivations pegged perfectly. I told him after his talk that I think it takes someone who has experienced living in another country to truly recognize what 0bama is all about. Those of us who grew up in the United States have no radar for dictatorial leaders. We’ve been sheltered. We assume our politicians are pro-American. Big mistake. (Shaka to the Heritage Foundation for hosting this outstanding event.)
Final Thought: ”Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards.” Eric Holder (Cowards? I guess you might say it takes one to know one.)
Over & out for me….I’m going to celebrate my birthday today. It’s the Year of the Dragon and we Dragons need to roar!
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON – REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER!!
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.”

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.”

It’s hilarious to see how they respond to his calling them racist because they are protesting the policies of a Black President.

ALOHA, ALL!! As we get ready to celebrate Labor Day weekend, how about some news on labor & jobs? Actually, it’s not news, it’s the same old bad stuff, trending downward. ZERO jobs were created in August. This is the first time since 1945 that we’ve had a month of zero jobs growth. Yep….nada, none, zilch. Today, The Heritage Foundation had a great overview of the current job situation: Unemployment Rate Stuck, Zero New Jobs in America Barry sees the writing on the wall – if these numbers continue, he’s toast. Actually, if there isn’t a big improvement in the unemployment and job growth numbers, he should be toast (but remember….he’ll have a billion dollars, the bully pulpit and million $$ busses to tour America for his re-election effort. Well, he’ll fly to the busses and then get on them for a couple of miles to look like one of “the people.”) So today, in a completely political move, he decided to pull back on planned EPA regulations.
