  1. Joe Curl’s “one percent” article is a good read, not only about the lifestyle of the rich and famous Obamas, but a peek into the “type” of people they are.

  2. The WashPost piece that tries to explain how the WhiteHouse Easter egg roll gets “paid for” managed to raise questions of who gets “paid” from the secret donations and sales of souveniers, and what exactly costs so much that certain individuals donate $25,000 to the event.

    The last paragraph;
    “And the reason the Easter Egg Roll can be held but White House tours are still canceled? The Secret Service cannot accept outside financing. As a result of the mandatory budget cuts known as sequestration, it does not have the funds to perform background checks.” is another example of the MSM following the WhiteHouse spin on budgeting adjustments that were proposed by and signed by the President.
    By stating that the SecretService does not have the funds to perform background checks is ridiculous; we can assume that background checks are cursory at best, done by computer searches or information provided by the Congressman’s office that provided the tickets for the visitors.

    • The White House sent out an email right after the sequester that told all the government departments, including Treasury which is where the SS is, to make the sequester hurt the American people as much as possible. I think that has more to do with the cancellation of White House tours and the Easter Egg Hunt than anything else. He wants us to feel his pain. Nice, huh?

  3. Here’s the real story on “immigrants” from Mexico:

    If you click on the link, check out the first photo that shows two men carrying rectangular packages on their backs. The photo plainly shows illegal aliens carrying illegal drugs (marijuana) into the US. The other photos show single men, not families as the MSM leads us to believe, illegally crossing our border with nothing more than a small backpack to begin their “new” lives in America.
    An intelligent person could wonder, how does one immigrate to a new country with nothing more than a change of underwear and a toothbrush and expect to survive. The answer; they don’t. Everything they need is waiting for them here, probably in your state (most definitely not Arizona) where you, the taxpayer, will supply them with housing, food, and medical care. Welcome to America, Mexico.

    • Just as predicted, illegal border crossings have increased because of all the talk of amnesty. The Mexican drug cartels use the illegals as mules for their drug trade, the Democrats see them as fodder to maintain their corrupt democrat dynasty, and the Republicans see them as cheap manual labor to keep their business costs down. Until we have people of principle in charge of our government, people who put country above politics, we have no chance of recovering from this invasion of America.

  4. “Biden lobbying all-out on guns . . . The Hill”

    “I’m gonna show him what a little girl’s made of
    Gunpowder and lead

    His fist is big but my gun’s bigger
    He’ll find out when I pull the trigger

    I’m goin’ home, gonna load my shotgun
    Wait by the door and light a cigarette
    He wants a fight, well now he’s got one
    And he ain’t seen me crazy yet”
    Lyrics from eLyrics.net

    -Jill Biden, when Joe comes home unexpectedly and she takes his advice on the door aiming thing.

    There never was any “There” there. It was never about the envionment, it was always about controlling people and economic redistribution.

    ‘Nobody has ever offered a more succinct indictment of the global warming hoax than H. L. Mencken, who said: “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”‘

    Here’s some actual science on it. It was deemed to “sciency” by the International Weekly Journal of Science as one of the sources of this nonsense, but it apparently didn’t fit their agenda-driven publication’s chosen paradigm – facts be d@mned.

    “Along comes Steve McIntyre, a Canadian analyst, who spends two years of his own personal time reverse-engineering Dr. Mann’s PCA program. McIntyre subjects Mann’s PCA program to a “Monte Carlo” analysis – which inserts random data sets into the function – and discovered that no matter what data he fed it, the result was always the same. The arm of the “hockey stick” ( paleo-record ) always came out straight. In Dr. Mann’s case, the rising temperature of the Medieval Warm Period and the expected trough of the Little Ice Age had been completely erased. The hockey stick was broken. Fini. Kaput. We may never know whether Mann’s work was deliberately contrived to fit some personal environmental agenda, or just a colossal mathematical blunder.

    McIntyre submitted his work to Nature Magazine – since they were responsible for publishing Mann’s flawed research without peer review in the first place, but they reportedly rejected it, saying it was “too long”. He then shortened it to 500 words, and re-submitted it, but again it was rejected, this time saying it was “too mathematical” or words to that effect. Heaven forbid any publication calling itself an “International Weekly Journal of Science” from actually publishing any science that hinged on mathematics. Let’s all push a yard stick into the snow, measure the snow depth, call ourselves “climate scientists”, and get published in Nature. In the end, McIntyre turned to the internet and its true freedom of the press, and today he is known to every serious climate scientist on the planet as the man who broke the hockey stick.

    The National Academy of Sciences has found Mann’s graph to have “a validation skill not significantly different from zero” – i.e., the graph was useless. Note the corrected version, below, in which neither today’s temperatures nor the rate of warming are particularly unusual compared to the historical record. Thus, even the “global warming” of the 20th century was not even remotely a cause for the slightest alarm. It was all “much to do about nothing”.”

    But, it DID give Al Gore a billion-dollar business, gave Obama a venue for transferring public commonweal to his “freinds”, AND gave the Government a WONDERFUL tool for reward and punishment of the entire populaiton via the EPA – an unelected, unaccountable Federal agency! THAT’S worth a few flawed studies, innit?

    Let me sum all the pro-“Global Warming” science up with one phrase;

    “Is it warm in here, or is it just me?”

    Yup. Let’s ruin the American economy and take American liberties based on liberal “hot flashes”. Good plan!

    And it may yet work…

  6. Secondhand smoke might cause various dangerous health conditions, and diseases like cancer.
    You get addicted to it and even if you attempt
    to get rid with the nasty habit, you cannot. Nicotine can be a highly addictive drug and the
    physical cravings might be very tough to overcome.
