Marco Rubio Meets with Gutierrez, Other Hispanic Racists on “Dream” Nonsense!


By John W. Lillpop

As students who just happen to be American citizens grapple with skyrocketing education costs, including the terms of student loans, Marco Rubio, so-called Republican conservative, has joined forces with Hispanic racists on the left who want everything for Hispanics, even those whom are here illegally.

As reported in the media:


Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) told Univision that he had a fruitful conversation with Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) yesterday afternoon about introducing a watered-down version of the DREAM Act.



Rubio and Gutierrez also huddled with Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) and Rep. Charles Gonzalez (D-Texas).

“It was a great meeting. Look, I am going to meet with anyone independent of their political party or what perceived or real political benefit my association [provides] as long as it does one thing: stop the deportations,” Gutierrez told Univision News in an interview Wednesday evening.

“He said it and we agreed with him; today was not a day for us to come together because there is no proposal to agree on,” Gutierrez said of Rubio. “It was simply a conversation opening dialogue.”

Under Rubio’s version, certain undocumented minors would receive legal status, but not a special pathway to citizenship. Gutierrez has derided that alternative as the “Stolen Dream Act,” but said he’s now willing to give Rubio a chance to see how the proposal comes together.

“He asked me to give him a chance, and I’m going to wait,” Gutierrez said. “…I asked him when did he think we could hear more, he said in a few weeks. Sounds great to me.”
Get that patriots? Gutierrez thinks the Rubio charade sounds “great.

What more proof is required to certify that Marco Rubio is a flaming liberal trying to sell himself as a compassionate conservative?

In truth, Rubio is numero uno Rino!

John Lillpop Interviews Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi





















 

Satire by John Lillpop
This is a republication of an article originally issued on January 2, 2007:


Just hours before her coronation as Speaker-elect, Nancy Pelosi sat down with John Lillpop of the LillSatire news conglomerate to discuss her historic rise to power. The transcript of that interview follows:

John:

Welcome, Madam Speaker-elect, and congratulations on your history-making achievement.

Nancy:

Thank you, John. It’s a pleasure to be here.


John:

If I can, Ms. Pelosi, I would like to get your analysis of the single-most pressing issue facing America as you prepare to take control of the U.S. House.


Nancy:

That is an excellent question. In my view, the greatest problem facing our nation is this: All the wrong people have the money these days.

John:

Ms. Pelosi? Can you elaborate and tell our readers how you plan to address this issue?

Nancy:

Well, it’s really quite simple if you think about it. The rich and powerful have all the money—and they are simply the wrong people to be entrusted with so much wealth.

We Democrats plan to change that wealth dynamic through a series of bills designed to redistribute wealth to the poor and downtrodden, the less fortunate.

John:

Does that mean higher taxes?

Nancy:

Only for the filthy rich. Any GOP family that makes more than $20,000 a year is living a pampered lifestyle, and needs to sacrifice more for the common good. We intend to balance the playing field by taxing the rich and funneling their money to the poor.

John:

What about spending? Are Democrats committed to frugality?

Nancy:

Absolutely! We are already working on landmark legislation to essentially disembowel the FBI, CIA, Pentagon, Homeland Security, and other “non-essential” services.

Eliminating these departments will free up hundreds of billions for vital services needed by America’s poor and needy.

John:

What programs will be funded for the poor and needy after you make those cuts?

Nancy:

John, this nation has 47 million uninsured people to worry about. We have 20 million illegal aliens from Mexico who are very needy and poor. We have countless homeless who need cars, homes, education, access to inexpensive drugs, and the list goes on and on.

John:

But what about the war on terror? The cuts you propose all seem to come at the expense of America’s defense and security.

Nancy:

Actually, the war on terror is a myth fabricated and disseminated by the Bush administration to send hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars to Halliburton and other GOP fat cat corporations. There is no terrorist threat to America.

John:

But what about 9/11, Ms. Speaker-elect?

Nancy:

We have secured “Top Secret” documents from informants on the 9/11 Commission which indicate that 9/11 was a management conspiracy in the controller’s towers in Boston, New York City, and Washington, D.C. 9/11 was nothing more than an attempt at union busting by anti-labor airline management.

John:

Incredible. Can that information be made public so that the American people can see your proof?

Nancy:

As I said, the documents are “Top Secret.” So America will just have to trust John Kerry and me to tell the truth.

John:

Another sizzling issue seems to be gay marriage. America is very divided on this—what are your beliefs?

Nancy:

I have a personal commitment to see that gay people have the same rights as all other Americans. We are a great people who did the right thing with respect to racial and gender discrimination. Now we need to emancipate gay people from the yoke of discrimination.

John:

What about adoptions by gay couples?

Nancy:

Actually, I have a very personal answer to that question. You see, my parents are gay—my father is a gay man, and mum is a lesbian. Both mum and dad had high-visibility jobs where their sexual orientation could not be made public. Thus, they married for convenience—a cover for both of them.

John:

So you were conceived as the result of a gay union?

Nancy:

It’s a tad bit more complicated than that. Mum and dad decided to forego the traditional “consummation” of their marriage for obvious reasons. But they wanted desperately to have a child.

So I was adopted and raised by a gay couple--and look how I turned out!

John: (Choking).

Excuse me, Ms. Pelosi. I see our time has elapsed. Thank you for coming here today.

Nancy:

Thank you, John.

Illegal Aliens, Felons, and The Dead: All Democrats Now!



By John W. Lillpop



With the presidential election a little more than six months away, Democrat strategists are reportedly set to unleash a massive “get out the vote” campaign in order to tip the scales to the extreme left.
Whackos at the Democratic National Committee (DNC) are supposedly convinced that Barack Obama can be reelected and both the House and the Senate won  by simply focusing on three important voting blocs known to be treasure coves for liberals.

The three voting groups that Democrats are counting to carry the day:
* Illegal aliens

* Convicted felons, and

* The Dead
It is technically unlawful for votes to be cast by, or on behalf of, any person in any of these categories. However, Democrat lawyers claim that laws that prohibit voting by illegal aliens, felons, and the dead are discriminatory and unconstitutional.

Those same Democrats point to the precedent established in 1960 when Democrat John F. Kennedy defeated Republican Richard Nixon for the U.S. presidency because of the unusually high turnout among dead voters in Cook Co, Illinois.

In another example of blatant voter fraud, in 1996 Democrat Loretta Sanchez defeated long-term Republican incumbent Republican Bob Dornan in a bid for the House seat in California’s 46th congressional district. Dornan’s loss was the result of votes cast by Latino illegal aliens for Sanchez.

With respect to felons, Democrats have long been in favor of making such individuals eligible to vote.

Then there is the case of William Jefferson Clinton. This corrupt Democrat was impeached in 1998, subsequently disbarred by the Arkansas bar, and banned from arguing before the United States Supreme Court because of perjury and obstruction of justice.

Despite his troubling “rap sheet,” Clinton apparently voted for Democrats in 2000, 2002, 2004, 2006, and 2008.

Democrats simply cannot win without voter fraud!

Michelle’s “Play in Spain" Results in Taxpayer Pain!





By John W. Lillpop

Although President Obama proudly boasts that neither he nor wife Michelle were born with a “Silver Spoon” in their mouths, there has been no shortfall of gaudy overindulgence and extravagant living by this First Couple over the past four years.

Indeed, while average Americans struggle with record unemployment, bankruptcies, and mortgage foreclosures during the worst economy since the great depression, the Obamas have enjoyed opulence at every turn, most of it funded by financially- strapped taxpayers.

As reported at the reference:

“It cost taxpayers nearly a half-million dollars for first lady Michelle Obama to travel to Spain in 2010, according to an analysis by Judicial Watch.
The right-leaning watchdog group estimated that the trip cost $467,585. It based its analysis on documents obtained from the U.S. Secret Service and the U.S. Air Force.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said it took his group “two years and a lawsuit to get these documents out of the Obama administration.”

“It is hypocritical for President Obama to fire GSA officials for wasteful conference spending, while his family went on a luxury vacation in the Costa del Sol Spain that cost taxpayers nearly half a million dollars,” Fitton said.

Among the various travel costs, the group estimated — using the Defense Department’s 2010 published hourly rates — that it cost the government $199,323 to fly to Spain and back to the United States.

The New York Times reported that those on the trip included the first lady, one of her daughters and “two friends and four of their daughters, as well as a couple of aides and a couple of advance staff members.”

Fitton’s group has previously disclosed the cost of sending the first family on overseas trips. Its analysis indicated that it cost $424,142 to fly the first family to South Africa and Botswana in 2011.”

Even without the despised “Silver Spoons” in their mushes, Barack and Michelle Obama are clearly among the “1” percent elitists that has Occupy nut balls so outraged.

The big question: Where are the “Occupy Michelle” protestors?

Chief Justice Roberts: "Seems ..the federal government just doesn’t want to know who’s here illegally"

By John W. Lillpop

On the heels of President Obama’s very trying day before the U.S. Supreme Court with respect to ObamaCare, the court gave indications that it may be ready to add to Obama’s woes by upholding SB 1070, Arizona’s immigration enforcement law.

As reported at the reference:
 


Supreme Court justices took a dim view of the Obama administration’s claim that it can stop Arizona from enforcing immigration laws, telling government lawyers during oral argument Wednesday that the state appears to want to push federal officials, not conflict with them.




The court was hearing arguments on Arizona’s immigration crackdown law, which requires police to check the immigration status of those they suspect are in the country illegally, and would also write new state penalties for illegal immigrants who try to apply for jobs.




The Obama administration has sued, arguing that those provisions conflict with the federal government’s role in setting immigration policy, but justices on both sides of the aisle struggled to understand that argument.




“It seems to me the federal government just doesn’t want to know who’s here illegally,” Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. said at one point."

Should the court find against ObamaCare and in favor of SB 1070, America will finally be on the road to recovery.

Defeating Obama and Congressional Democrats in November would let the world know in no uncertain terms that common sense and rule of law are making a come-back in America!

Illegal Aliens Come to America for Freedom & Our Values?

















By John W. Lillpop


Former President George W. Bush, illegal alien advocate and a RINO in many other respects, often tried to defend north-bound invaders with the nonsensical argument that Mexicans came to America primarily in search of freedom and because they shared American values.

W. actually believed, or professed to believe, that the reason so many millions of Mexican peasants risked their very lives crossing the hot, deadly desert was to take advantage of America’s Democracy and Constitution-based government.

He  vociferously railed against those who argued that illegals were drawn to America by free health care, free education, food stamps, welfare, subsidized housing and other financial incentives to which they were not legally entitled.

So, why are freedom and American values no longer attracting millions to our great nation? And why are so many Mexican illegals headed south in order to escape the Obama depression?

The answer can be found, in part, at the reference and has nothing to do with freedom and values:



Well, that’s one way to stem the tide of illegal aliens streaming across the border from Mexico.


Jack up unemployment rates to near double digits, dunk America into a double-dip recession and put us so deeply into hock with the Chinese communists that it will take generations for us to recover.


After long enough, living and working and trying to eke out bare survival in America becomes even worse than trying to get by in Mexico.


A new study from the highly esteemed Pew Hispanic Center says the millions of Mexicans who risked their lives crossing the desert to get here to the promised land for a better life have given up on the U.S.


This is no small feat. Have you ever been to Mexico? Not the ritzy beach towns with the gated resorts, but Nuevo Laredo? The dusty streets are filled with bony children selling gum and candy for just a few spare pennies.


Desperate as that little trade may have once seemed to us, at least it has the vibe of the floor of the New York Stock Exchange during the ‘90s. Nothing like that is going on anywhere on this side of the border.


Remember the axiom of big government bureaucrats: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. When, finally, under the crushing weight of taxes and regulation, it stops moving, subsidize it.


So the Mexicans have quit coming to the hopeless part of North America. Canada is just too far to walk.


Or, at least, the few final stragglers who have not kept up with America’s woes and are still sneaking into the U.S. are balanced out by all the illegal Mexicans already here who are now risking their lives to cross the desert to escape the American “dream.”


Now we know why all the politicians in Washington have finally agreed to beef up security and build a fence along the southern border. They’re desperate to keep all the Mexicans from leaving.


That’s right, who would raise their children and mow their lawns and do all of America’s dirty work if all the Mexicans left?


Authors of the Pew report call the stunning shift in migration patterns historic. Not since the Great Depression, they say, has a shift of this magnitude occurred along the U.S.-Mexico border. Not since the Great Depression?”
In a word, then, the answer is Dinero. Illegal aliens come to America to steal jobs and benefits from American citizens.me to America to steal jobs and benefits from American citizens.me to America to steal jobs and benefits from American citizens.

Period!
Most could hardly care less about high-minded notions like liberty, human rights, and equality. Which is why returning to Mexico will be so seamless for them!

Sorry, W., but illegals came here to rip American citizens off—and political hacks like you enabled the rip offs!

Unmasking the Marco Rubio “Conservative” Foolishness!


By John W. Lillpop



From the “you- can- fool -all –of- the- people -some -of -the time” archive comes this: For a brief while, Florida Senator Marco Rubio seemed sufficiently conservative and American to be on the national ticket as  Vice President nominee along side Mitt Romney, presumptive nominee for the numero uno slot for the Republicans.

Rubio was, and is, very articulate, photogenic, says most of the right things most of the time, and did not appear to be a fanatic about illegal immigration, a trap that many Hispanics fall into.

Above all else, Rubio is Hispanic, a demographic constituency with whom Republicans struggle mightily, mostly due to the right-wing position which holds that the rule of law should be applied uniformly to all, without regard to ethnicity or race.

It was naively assumed that Rubio shared conservative ideals when it comes to immigration.

Unfortunately, that assumption was pounded into oblivion like a helpless pinata when Rubio proposed that “Racial Profiling” be made a part of the GOP platform through adoption of the Rubio version of the DREAM ACT.

As reported at the reference, in part:
Rubio's still-evolving bill would allow young undocumented immigrants who graduated from high school and have no criminal record to obtain a nonimmigrant visa. They could stay in the United States, obtain a drivers' license and work or continued their studies but would have no special path to citizenship. Rubio has said his goal is to craft a Republican compromise on the so-called DREAM Act in time for the upcoming Fall semester that Romney could support”
Fact of the matter, the young Hispanics that Rubio is so obsessed about are “Illegal aliens” as defined in the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986. They are here illegally and should be rounded up and deported back to Mexico, or other nation of origin immediately.

Calling invading criminals “Undocumented” is disrespectful, dishonest, and demeaning to the millions of Americans whom have gone through the rigors of legal immigration and made America their home in accordance with the law.

Mr. Rubio and like minded folks like the Bushes and all Democrats seem to think that simply being Hispanic entitles one to ignore the rule of law with impunity! After all, they seem to argue, Hispanics are special and should not be forced to abide by the law as everyone else must.

Has there ever been a more un-American definition of “racial profiling”?

The fact is, Mr. Rubio, there are anywhere from 12-30 million illegal aliens in America right now!  This after the 1986 amnesty that was granted to 3-4 million invaders with the promise that that amnesty would end the unlawful invasions, once and for all.

A whopping $110 billion dollars is spent by American taxpayers every year to feed, house, and educate illegal aliens, most of whom are Hispanic!

Bottom line: America owes illegal aliens, even those brought here as children, nada, not one thin dime.

Illegal invasions are a huge problem for homeland security, educational resources, the economy, and American culture, including language.

Preservation of American sovereignty, language, and culture should be the greatest priority for all politicians, regardless of political party, race, or ethnicity.

THAT is so fundamental that it should not even have to be mentioned.

DREAM ACT, Senator?

Why not a dream act for the American people for a change?

Let’s enforce our borders and deport all illegal aliens! NOW!


Comprehende?

Alabama Immigration Law Puts American Citizens Back to Work. What Say Ye, Mr. President?


By John W. Lillpop

Barack Obama claims that he is committed to ending the hideous rate of unemployment that has plagued the American people and only gotten worse, during his term.  However, the president’s sincerity is highly debatable, especially when one ponders the state of Alabama and that state’s progress in putting more Americans to work since implementing a tough new immigration.

As reported at the reference, in part:

Two states — Michigan and Alabama — are jointly leading the nation in the difficult race to force down unemployment rates. Both states have reduced their unemployment rates by 2 points since last March, putting them well ahead of most other states, such as California (down 0.7 points), Florida (down 1.7 points) or Nevada (down 1.6 points).

But President Barack Obama has ignored Alabama’s recovery while repeatedly boosting Michigan, whose unemployment rate of 8.5 percent is well above the 7.3 percent rate in Alabama.

In fact, Obama has boosted Michigan with his massive multi-billion dollar auto bailout, and hampered Alabama with lawsuits.

Obama directed his lawyers in the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division to halt a major element of Alabama’s unemployment reduction program — the popular and bipartisan immigration reform law that requires residents to show work eligibility, which has opened up many jobs to Alabama residents since June 2011.

Just as importantly, White House officials are portraying Alabama’s popular immigration reform as a threat and an insult to Hispanic voters in other swing states, such as Florida, North Carolina, Colorado and Virginia. Obama’s campaign officials hope to spur a record turnout by Latino supporters in November.

Since last fall, when Alabama state officials began to enforce the law stage-by-stage, almost 47,000 of Alabama’s citizens and legal residents have gotten jobs.

There is no reliable data showing how many illegal immigrants have left Alabama, but the increase in formal employment has spurred tax receipts in the state’s counties, as well as many businesses. It has also helped raise salaries in some business that lost workers after the immigration reform.

In March, employment increased by 12,200, and the average time that people received unemployment benefits fell to 17 weeks, according to an April 20 statement by Gov. Robert Bentley.

However, these accomplishments for Alabama’s working class and middle class have been ignored by Obama’s lawyers, especially Tom Perez, who heads the Justice Department’s civil rights division.

In October, Perez visited the state, used a press conference to repeat rumors about ill-treatment of immigrants and to claim that the state’s education scores would decline if the children of illegal immigrants depart.

“We’re hearing a number of reports about increases in bullying in schools… we’re beginning to hear information regarding [potentially improper] arrests…. we are hearing some concerns about vigilante enforcement of the law…. [and] there are disturbing reports of people saying ‘You don’t belong here. Go back to where you came from,’” claimed Perez, who prefaced his claims by describing himself as “the son of immigrants.”

Otherwise, Alabama gets few mentions in the White House.

A Jan. 11 event in the White House showcased investment in Alabama by German steelmaker ThyssenKrupp, but that investment was attributed by the White House to the “insourcing” of jobs prompted by government policy.

Actually, ThyssenKrupp is buiding the huge $3.7 billion facility in Alabama partly because it is close to cheap coal supplies. The steel mill — and its expected workforce of 2,700 — will add to the state’s high-tech sector, which includes several auto-manufacturing plans and the Pentagon’s missile-research center in Huntsville.

Those companies are also attracting other companies, despite loud protests by lobbies that oppose the immigration reform.

For example, Newman Technology recently began construction of an auto-parts plant intended to employ roughly 70 people in Albertville. The project stands “as proof that businesses will locate in our state, and even Albertville – the epicenter for the immigration battle in Alabama,” county council member Chuck Ellis told The Daily Caller.

In contrast to the disfavor shown by Obama to Alabama, Obama has lavished praise on Michigan, visited the state several times, and cites it as a model for the nation.

On April 18, for example, Obama told a rapt audience in Dearborn, Mich., that “I placed my bets on American workers… [and now] the American auto industry is back. And that happened because of you. That happened because of you.”

On January 27, Obama told a meeting of House Democrats in Cambridge, Md., that “I just came from Michigan… [where] you can feel this sense of renewed purpose and renewed hope… you get a sense of movement, a restoration of hope and possibility.”

Michigan, however, is making slightly slower economic progress than Alabama, despite the massive infusion of federal cash from the auto bailout.

For example. Michigan’s unemployment dropped by 12,000 this March, compared to Alabama’s drop of 12,200.

Michigan’s unemployment rolls are down 96,000 compared to one year ago, compared to Alabama’s drop of 47,000. However, Michigan’s workforce of 4.46 million is more than twice as large as Alabama’s workforce of 2.14 million.

Alabama’s unemployment rate has shrunk back to March 2008 levels, with 157,378 people unemployed in March 2012, said Bentley’s statement.

But Michigan’s rate is 8.5 percent, well above Michigan’s 7.1 percent in March 2008. However, Michigan’s unemployment rate is well down from the disastrous rate 14.1 percent in October 2009.

Both states have Republican governors, Gov. Bentley in Alabama, and Gov. Rick Snyder in Michigan. Neither governor has been complimented, or even mentioned, in Obama’s speeches since the fall.”

Once again, Obama’s enthusiasm for new jobs is sky high—unless environmental extremism is involved as in the Keystone Pipeline project, or when pandering to the Hispanic vote as in Alabama..

America needs to elect a president who is 100 percent committed to putting Americans back to work.

And that may involve actions such as enforcing the law by ending federal support for illegal aliens. Our president must be willing to act in a manner that will benefit the greastest number of Americans!

Public Employee Unions Drive Los Angeles to Brink of BK!


By John W. Lillpop



How huge will it be if Los Angeles, America’s 2nd largest city,
succumbs to financial suicide and is forced into bankruptcy?

That dreary prospect is a growing probability in this city ravaged by greedy labor unions, illegal aliens, and Democrat politicians.

As reported at the reference, LA faces a $238 million shortfall in the current fiscal year and BILLIONS more over the long haul:
The nation’s second largest city teeters on the verge of bankruptcy, local elected officials – and especially taxpayers elsewhere – ought to take it as a wake-up call and ponder the evident public policy blunders that laid the groundwork for such an unnecessary scenario.

Los Angeles’ potential bankruptcy and $238 million budget shortfall were predictable and preventable. So predictable in fact that former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan warned of the looming crisis in a Wall Street Journal editorial in 2010. Now he says bankruptcy may be just a year away.

What underscores this municipal catastrophe is the undue influence of public employee unions on city expenditures, irresponsible decisions by elected leaders and unsustainable benefit structures practically germane to the government sector.

When reporting the projected budget gap for the 2012-13 fiscal year, L.A.’s chief administrative officer, Miguel Santana, noted that the budget shortfall is likely to be much greater – $427 million – by 2014-15, if drastic action is not taken.

Ominous as the projections are, they understate the forthcoming structural challenges in L.A.

A study released earlier this month by the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research estimated that each of the city’s three independent pension funds are unfunded by billions of dollars: the City of Los Angeles Fire and Police Pension System is $9.25 billion unfunded; the Los Angeles City Employees’ Retirement System is $11.32 billion unfunded; and the City of Los Angeles Water and Power Employees’ Retirement System is $6.59 billion unfunded. To put the numbers in context, L.A.’s 2011-12 operating budget is $6.87 billion, according to the city.

Stanford’s study also found that “pension costs increased from 8.5 percent of total city expenditures in 1999 to 13.7 percent in 2011.” For fiscal year 2011-12, estimated pension costs look to be “15.4 percent of city expenditures.” That means public employee retirement costs continue to crowd out other city budgetary priorities and perhaps serve as a precursor to insolvency.

Considering these trends, the city of Los Angeles could be facing the start of bankruptcy “as early as next year,” Riordan argues. “What will likely trigger bankruptcy is when Wall Street stops buying bonds from [the city of] LA,” he said. “Someone will wake up and say, ‘They aren’t going to have enough money to pay off my bonds,’ and that will be that.”

“If you predict ahead three or four years,” Riordan argues, the city will have to “close parks, libraries and cut police and fire services,” similar to what has happened in the cities of Stockton and Vallejo.

What helped to cause many of these problems is the political might of public employee unions and the willingness of elected officials to kowtow to their whims. Riordan made the point more bluntly when he said the unions basically control the L.A. City Council.

For example, “A compensation package negotiated in 2007 irresponsibly guaranteed many city workers more than 25 percent in pay hikes over five years,” according to a Los Angeles Times editorial.

Even now, as the city faces crisis, “most employees represented by the Coalition of Los Angeles City Unions are scheduled for 11 percent increases in compensation over the coming two years,” the Times reported. Given that in February the unemployment rate in the City of Angels was 13.3 percent, according to the U.S. Department of Labor Statistics, it should be unthinkable to even consider raises for public workers.

City officials have suggested offsetting budget shortfalls partially by asking workers to forgo these raises but the union bosses are crying foul. Councilwoman Jan Perry, via phone, said the raise issue will come down to a simple question for the unions: “Do you want to save jobs for more people or raises for fewer people?” If the union is unwilling to give up the raises, layoffs appear eminent, diminishing the city’s workforce.

“Whether people have the political will or not,” Perry said, “the numbers are the numbers, right there in front of them.”

Of course, layoffs will not be enough. City workers will have to assume more costs for their own health care and, at the very least, a new, less-generous pension plan has to be created for new employees.

“A new pension tier for people not even hired is completely reasonable to pursue,” Perry argued.

The unions will have to be part of, if not the catalysts for, serious reform or they will be the biggest losers. Either unions make major concessions or the city will have to raise taxes to astronomical levels, Riordan argued.

“Can you imagine L.A. quadrupling their taxes? Everyone would flee the city and the state. Somewhere along the line the unions have to take action because their people are the one’s who will be hurt.”

Cities and municipalities throughout California and elsewhere ought to take note of L.A.’s follies before shortfalls overwhelm their coffers, too. Riordan contends: “LA is better off than a lot of cities but it is not well enough off to prevent bankruptcy.”
If that is the case, California has a bumpier road ahead.”

That is the case and look out for the bumps!  Liberalism at work.

To Concerned Agencies of the Federal Government: What About Louis Farrakhan?



















By John W. Lillpop


While Attorney General Eric Holder wastes his time opposing voter ID laws in order to assure enough voter fraud to help Barack Obama in tight swing states, and the Secret Service harasses Ted Bundy for speaking out about the disaster that would surely ensue should Barack Obama steal yet another election, a real, honest to goodness menace to the common good is polluting the air waves with racist hate speech and wicked threats against white people.

That would be the leader of the Nation of Islam, the vile, outspoken maniac, AKA Louis Farrakhan.
Farrakhan is a regular contributor to America’s racism bubble along with like-minded folks Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.

As reported at the reference, Farrakhan made headlines with another inflammatory spiel of racist hate speech delivered to a mostly black crowd at University of Arkansas:


“They know you, but you don’t know them or yourself, so you’re always at a disadvantage when you sit down with white people to negotiate,” he told his predominately black audience.
“We don’t ever come in their presence like we are some little weak things.”
He continued, going on to address Caucasians directly.

“I know myself. I know you. And some of you white people – I know you better than you know yourself because God has revealed you fully,” he explained, going on to seemingly claim that he has a special, God-ordained ability to see what others cannot."

This, of course, was followed up with a cryptic warning to white Americans about their need to “change.”

“It ain’t about hating you. We ain’t got no time for that. But we know who we’re dealing with. We know what we’re dealing with,” he said. “We know your origin in the world and we know how long you were set to live and unless you change, your end has come.”

Whites must change or our end has come?

Where in the hell are the President of the US and his Attorney General when these sorts of evil threats are made against white people?

Too busy working on reelection strategy, forsaking even a pretense of commitment to responsible governance?

Too occupied with formulating a strategy for vetoing the latest Keystone Pipeline proposal and blaming Republicans for $5 a gallon gas?

Too overwhelmed with circumventing religious freedom and free speech in order to force abortions and contraception down the throats of unwilling Catholic institutions whose religious faith is being offered as a sacrificial lamb in an important election year?

Too obsessed with raising one billion dollars in order to defeat evil conservatives who represent the rich and powerful?

Judging from the past three and one half years, many of the offensive, immoral things about America have little or nothing to do with white folks!

By John W. Lillpop



High drama dominated news from Florida this Friday as new developments became public in the Trayvon Martin case.

To begin with, George Zimmerman, accused of 2nd degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, may have been at least partially vindicated by a photograph which shows the back of Zimmerman’s head badly injured and bleeding.

As reported by ABC News, in part:
"A new photograph released by ABC News shows a bloodied George Zimmerman with injuries on the back of his head.


The photo, which was reportedly taken three minutes after Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin, could serve as possible evidence supporting the neighborhood watch volunteer's claim of his violent confrontation with the teen.


The image shows blood trickling down Zimmerman's head from two cuts, and a possible contusion on the crown of his head.”
That was followed by a ruling from Judge Kenneth R. Lester Jr., presiding over the Trayvon Martin case, which held that George Zimmerman could be released upon meeting a bond of $150,000.

According to media reports, “Authorities and attorneys need to work out arrangements to allow Zimmerman to live outside Florida as he awaits trial on a second-degree murder charge because of threats made against him and his family.”

Finally, based on the latest developments, Professor Alan Dershowitz added to his criticism of the prosecution by calling them, “Not only immoral, but stupid.”

As reported in Reference 1:

         With ABC News’ release of the George Zimmerman photo showing blood flowing freely  from his head, the question becomes whether Angela Corey, the prosecutor in the case, had access to the photo before charging Zimmerman with second-degree murder.
The arrest affidavit did not mention the photograph, or the bleeding, gashes, and bruises on Zimmermans’ head.


Professor Alan Dershowitz of Harvard Law School stated upon release of the arrest affidavit that it was “so thin that it won’t make it past a judge on a second degree murder charge … everything in the affidavit is completely consistent with a defense of self-defense.”


After the release of the photo, however, Dershowitz went much further, telling Breitbart News that if the prosecutors did have the photo and didn’t mention it in the affidavit, that would constitute a “grave ethical violation,” since affidavits are supposed to contain “all relevant information.”


Dershowitz continued, “An affidavit that willfully misstates undisputed evidence known to the prosecution is not only unethical but borders on perjury because an affidavit swears to tell not only the truth, but the whole truth, and suppressing an important part of the whole truth is a lie."


When asked if it made a difference whether the prosecution had the bloody photograph at the time they charged Zimmerman, Dershowitz responded, “We do know that there were earlier photographs before the affidavit was done that strongly suggested blood on the back of the head, and we know the police had first access to him, so if there was blood they [the prosecution] would know about it …


"I've had cases in Florida against prosecutors,” Dershowitz said, “and this is not the first time they have willfully omitted exculpatory evidence. It's a continuing problem. Here, it’s not only immoral, but stupid. The whole country is watching. What do they benefit from having half-truths in an affidavit?"


Dershowitz added, "I'm not taking sides, but I'm insisting that both sides play by the rules, and so far the prosecution is not playing by the rules."


Hmmm.

Sounds as though the presiding judge was reasonable in considering bail for Zimmerman, but was remiss in not ordering the immediate arrest and detention of Angela Corey!

The Harry Reid “Solution” to Budget Deficits

By John W. Lillpop


Wrestling with the complexities and aggravation that ensues when a responsible member of Congress tries to balance a budget during the Barack Obama Era of fiscal insanity has driven many a good public servant to drink, drugs, or both.

A notable exception to this dilemma is found in the weak-voiced, wimpy-looking fellow from Nevada, also known as the majority leader of the U.S. Senate. That would be Democrat Harry Reid whom has revolutionized the whole concept of leadership and budget technology by making denial and procrastination the new standard for slothful, inept public service.

Reid’s new age solution is so simple that it is a wonder that it has not been tried before.

The logic behind Reid’s solution: Budget deficits exist only because of budgets. That is, if there were no budgets with their arbitrary, mostly racist goals around, there would be no deficits!

This solution is akin to the progressive solution to illegal immigration. Instead of demeaning future Democrats by labeling them as illegal aliens, simply call them “undocumented” and poof!, just like that there are no illegal aliens to fret about.

Similarly, if there are no budgets around to make life miserable, then there will be no deficits to deal with.

This tactic has worked like a charm for Harry Reid who has refused to allow work to proceed on a Senate budget for a third consecutive year!

Democrats acknowledge that this solution could someday haunt the grand children and great grand children of current taxpayers.

However, progressives are counting on savings from ObamaCare to save the day in the “out” years.

Besides, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are both in their 70s and are unlikely to be held accountable for future deficits.

And although Obama is just 50 years old, and likely to face some heat 20 years from now, he intends to fight off enemies with two words and one letter: George W. Bush!

With His Silver Spoon Spiel, Obama Unwittingly Made the Case FOR Private Enterprise!


















By John W. Lillpop

President Obama fired the latest round from his class warfare arsenal on Wednesday as the intensity of the 2012 presidential campaign escalated. Regrettably, there was no commiserate enhancement in substance, as the president plied more of the same old rhetoric meant to distract voters from considering his performance in office.

As reported at the reference, in part, Obama said,


"I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth. Michelle wasn’t. But somebody gave us a chance, just like these folks up here are looking for a chance,” he said, drawing polite applause from the swing state crowd."


Clearly, The One was trying to contrast the privileged lifestyle of Mitt Romney, the rich, Caucasian Republican, to that of Barack and Michelle Obama, humble African-Americans of modest means.

But in declaring the Obamas free from the plague of “silver spoon” help, Obama unwittingly made the case FOR free markets and private enterprise!

To wit, where else in the world could a man of such meager roots rise to become the “most powerful man” on the planet, and his wife the First Lady of the most prosperous nation in human history.
Indeed, the Obama experience proves that America’s system works wonderfully and that one does not need to be born with a “silver spoon” in order to prosper here!

It also makes an excellent case for shrinking government, rather than wasting additional trillions of taxpayer dollars on programs that simply do not work!

Obama needs to understand that the essence of American-style capitalism is that government must be kept at bay and prevented from implementing measures that kill jobs and stunt economic growth.
Get it, Barack? The secret is to keep government off the backs of private enterprise so as to unleash the forces of opportunity and innovation.

By doing so, the need for a “silver spoon” is supplanted by individual initiative and the magic of economic liberty!

Is Barack Obama’s Anti-white, Anti-American Bias Inherited from His Dad?

By John W. Lillpop

In order to understand Barack Obama’s motivation when it comes to national defense, jobs, deficits, taxes the economy, and American culture in general, one must accept the following fact:

Barack Obama holds a deep, personal resentment against those Americans who have  the audacity to succeed and prosper.


It would be wrong to blatantly accuse the president of using an anti-white bias when making economic decisions. It is mere coincidence, you see, that he always targets the so-called rich whom also just happen to be mostly Caucasian.
 
However, it is important to recognize that Obama’s father was well-known as anti-white, and anti-American as reported at the reference in part:


In his three years as U.S. president, Barack Obama has been dogged by claims he is not patriotic enough.

Last year he even had to publish his birth certificate to silence doubters who suggested he was not born an American.

Now it emerges that similar fears were expressed about his father, who was categorized with others as ‘anti-American and anti-white’ when he moved to the United States in 1959.

Mr. Obama Senior had grown up in Kenya under British rule and aroused the fears of both colonial officers and American officials when he won a chance to study in Hawaii. The officials felt Kenyan students were ‘academically inferior’ with a ‘bad reputation’ for turning anti-American.

A memo from a British diplomat in Washington to Whitehall – released today by the National Archives in West London – sets out their concerns about the young Kenyans.

Dated September 1, 1959, it says: ‘I have discussed with the State Department. They are as disturbed about these developments as we are. They point out that Kenya students have a bad reputation over here for falling into the wrong hands and for becoming both anti-American and anti-white.’

In one of the Foreign Office files, the future president’s father appears on a list of Kenyan students as ‘OBAMA, Barack H’ – they shared the same name.

At the age of 23, he enrolled at the University of Hawaii in Honolulu to study economics with classmates including Ann Dunham, a 17-year-old white American from Kansas. The couple had a short marriage that led to the birth in 1961 of the future president, Barack Obama II.

Obama Senior was among 100 or so Kenyan students brought to America by the African American Students Foundation.

U.S. and British officials were deeply suspicious of this outfit, observing that the AASF – though backed by singer Harry Belafonte and actor Sidney Poitier – had links to a Kenyan nationalist leader. ‘The motives behind this enterprise, therefore, seem more political than educational,’ warned a letter from the British Embassy in Washington.

It added: ‘The arrival here of these students, many of them of indifferent academic caliber and ill-prepared for the venture, is likely to give rise to difficult problems.’

Difficult problems, indeed!

According to those who think like President Obama, prosperous people not of color have achieved their successes, both now and in the past, on the backs of people of color.

Thus, in Obama’s mind Caucasians have not earned their success and must be whittled down to size by the federal government, including the Department of Justice, where Eric Holder stands ready to advocate on behalf of "his" people.

Slavery, though long ago eradicated in America, is, in and of itself, reason enough to punish the rich with higher taxes and other government sanctions.

Those guilty of Prospering While White, or PWW, must pay the price for the sins of generations long since dead and buried.

Tragically, Obama’s hatred for Caucasians exceeds his love for people of color. That means that the president will act against the interests of white folk even when such action is detrimental to people of color.

Obama’s emotional conflict explains why he pursues meaningless pap like the Buffet rule, an feeble attempt to use the IRS as a political force against the most successful among us.

The Buffet rule, thankfully laid to rest (AGAIN) by the US Senate on Monday, offered nothing in the way of jobs creation or deficit reduction. If fact, it would probably cost Americans even more jobs!

Still, the Buffet rule would temporarily satisfy the liberal lust for pummeling the rich, even if people of color ultimately suffered.

The solution?

On November 6, Barack Obama must be sent back to the streets of Chicago in order to make room for a president whom will serve all Americans!

Obama’s Spiteful Hang-up: Hates Successful White People More than He Loves Poor People of Color!

Happy Tax Day? How Much Big Government Waste & Fraud Did You Fund in 2011?



By John W. Lillpop

To out-of-touch leftists like President Obama, VP Biden, and congressional menaces Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, Tax Day is the most sacred day of the year, transcending even Christmas and Easter.

For it is on April 15 (or 16th or 17th) that big government is licensed to steal from we the governed, like it or not. Most do not, excepting Democrats who use money collected from you and I to buy votes from illegal aliens, corrupt labor unions, abortionists and assistants thereto, Planned Parent hood thugs, and all other manner of despicable ruffians who will vote as ordered, provided the price is right.

Unfortunately for all concerned, turning money over to the government is a hideously reckless practice which almost always results in rampant waste and or fraud.

Those who doubt this assertion should reflect on how taxpayer money is being misused by the "most transparent, forthright, and honest government in history"—that of Barack Obama.

For instance, Obama’s Department of Justice (DOJ) is run by Erick Holder, an Attorney General whom is so obsessed with circumventing the 2nd Amendment that, under his watch, the DOJ was directly involved in a gun-running scheme which placed deadly automatic weapons in the hands of drug cartels/terrorists in Mexico, and which cost an American border patrol agent and several Mexican citizens their lives.

How many of YOUR tax dollars were used to fund Holder’s "Fast and Furious" crimes and cover-up?

Next, consider the juicy scandal and corruption now surrounding Obama’s General Services Administration (GSA). Ironically, GSA is supposed to be the watch dog agency with responsibility to keep an eye on how other bureaucrats handle YOUR money.

Turns out that because no one was watching the watch dog, GSA spent nearly a million dollars of YOUR money on a gaudy spending orgy in Las Vegas, said event devoted to celebrating the GSA successes in NOT protecting the interests of American taxpayers and brazenly getting away with it—until now.

YOUR "Fair Share" of the tab for funding GSA larceny and chicanery is…how much?

Lest American taxpayers get the impression that a tawdry lack of professional demeanor and decorum is all about domestic politics and politicians, consider the fact that Hillary Clinton, current Secretary of State and former first lady, made embarrassing headlines all across the globe with a spectacle of dancing, drinking, and debauchery that one would expect from a teenaged college girl in heat whilst at a beach party on Spring break, rather than from a seasoned and sophisticated 60-something world leader expert in the subtleties of global diplomacy.

How many of YOUR tax dollars were used to keep Hillary’s cocktail glass full all night?

And finally we have the story involving the highly-respected team of Secret Service agents assigned to protect the president in Columbia, but whom were evacuated in a hasty shroud of secrecy because of indiscretions involving ladies of the night, said madams apparently not amenable to rendering services without just compensation.

 

How many of YOUR tax dollars ended up funding a sexual roll in the hay (or more) for a needy Secret Service agent?

In sum, under the progressive lunacy of Barack Obama, YOUR precious tax dollars have been used to fund a cesspool of corruption wherein gun running, spending orgies, reckless partying by an over the hill diplomat, and whore mongering are the new norm.

To paraphrase a former Speaker of the House: Maybe it is time for a "Latter Say Daint" (Mormon) to drain the swamp and dispose of the sludge?

Happy Returns on Tax Day!

A Friendly Note to Barack: Ann Romney Can Show Michelle How to Pack!


By John W. Lillpop

In an interview with ABC-News, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney waxed confident about his prospects for unseating Barack Obama from the Oval Office in November.

As reported at the reference, in part:

Acting very much like the GOP nominee, Mitt Romney sent a curt message to President Obama today: "Start packing."

The message, delivered with a chuckle, came in an exclusive interview with "World News" anchor Diane Sawyer who asked the presumptive GOP nominee if he had something to say to the president.

Romney said Obama’s "policies have not helped the American people. They have not helped get jobs, they have not helped raise incomes and they’ve added trillions of dollars of debt."

He was backed by his wife of 43 years, Ann Romney, who told Sawyer she also had a message for Obama. "I believe it’s… Mitt’s time… It’s our turn now," she said."

In all probability, Michelle Obama will turn the packing chores over to her White House staff, a work force of 30 or more, all being paid by US taxpayers.

After all, intellectual elitists like Michelle do not sully their hands in work intended for hired servants, ever if the elitist is a do-nothing sponge living on the public dole.

Indeed, Michelle has led a life of such extraordinary advantage and privilege that she has been denied exposure to some of the mundane situations that are confronted day in and day out by "stay-at-home" Moms.

Therefore, in a gesture of good will intended to put a lid on the "class war" gripping the nation, Mitt Romney should offer to have his gracious wife and future First Lady show Michelle Obama how to pack the Obama belongings for the family departure scheduled for January 20, 2013!

Prostitutes & Secret Service in Columbia: Another Foreign Policy "Success" for The One?





Satire by John W. Lillpop

 

In what appears to be a blatantly political move, Barack Obama has reportedly sought to hide a sordid sex scandal involving agents from the Secret Service and prostitutes in Columbia, where The One was ostensibly attending a Meeting of the Americas.

As reported at Yahoo News, in part:


An undisclosed number of Secret Service agents with President Barack Obama at an international summit in Colombia have been relieved of their assignments and face an investigation over alleged misconduct, a spokesman for the Secret Service said late Friday.

The Associated Press, citing an anonymous tip, reported that
the allegations involved prostitutes in Cartagena, the city hosting the gathering. The AP also said 12 agents were involved. The Washington Post cited the president of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, Jon Adler, as saying that the allegations were tied to at least one agent being involved with prostitutes in Cartagena.

Secret Service spokesman Edwin Donovan declined to confirm that the conduct involved prostitutes.

"There have been allegations of misconduct made against Secret Service personnel in Cartagena, Colombia prior to the President's trip.

Because of this, those personnel are being relieved of their assignments, returned to their place of duty, and are being replaced by other Secret Service personnel. The Secret Service takes all allegations of misconduct seriously. This entire matter has been turned over to our Office of Professional Responsibility, which serves as the agency's internal affairs component," Donovan said in a statement sent to Yahoo News by email."

Although press accounts failed to include this vital fact, underground sources allege that the disgraced agents are being replaced by Secret Service staff currently assigned to Republican Mitt Romney.

"There is no need for ‘conspiracy’ theorists to become alarmed," said the unnamed source, adding "These reassignments have been planned for quite a while—all the way back to the release of those silly polls that show Romney beating Obama in November."

Asked to comment on the manner by which the women prostitutes were treated, the source responded, "The president is a firm believer in equal pay for women and he is outraged that Secret Service agents reneged on the pay due these hard-working moms who, in the president’s mind, would really be better off working as ‘Stay at Home’ moms!"

Chalk up another spectacular foreign policy "success" on behalf of The One!

Deport Ozzie Guillen!



By John W. Lillpop

There is a perfectly good reason why Ozzie Guillen has never been invited to a Mensa meeting: The man is a brain dead Latino who is basically no brighter than baby poop!

He continues to say and do really dumb things, including his latest in which he revealed his man-love for Fidel Castro.

Typical for Guillen, who overlooks the fact that Castro routinely executes men who fall in love with his withered, stinky old commie self.

Still, Guillen does deserve due process, such as it is.

I say let’s try this pickled tamale and THEN ship his flaky butt to Cuba.

Let’s see how loving of Castro Guillen is after a few days in a cell reserved for ex-ball players who swish rather than swagger in good old Cuber!

ObamaCare: An Unconstitutional Mandate Pushed by an Illegal Alien Marxist Who Hates America!



By John W. Lillpop

Just how far has America fallen since turning the keys to the Oval Office over to Barack Hussein Obama?

Consider, please:

ObamaCare, the so-called "signature legislation" of Obama is an Unconstitutional mandate that seems sure to be scuttled by the Supreme Court in June.

Obama sold this scam to unthinking dolts by claiming that he would add 30-40 million people to the ranks of the insured, while reducing overall health care costs! Anyone who believes that desperately needs health care—especially coverage that includes serious mental disorders.

According to idiots like Nancy Pelosi, ObamaCare would reduce the federal deficit. Anyone who believes that deserves to spend a weekend in solitary confinement with a crazed witch like Pelosi.

In his snake oil campaign to sell Marxist medicine, Obama understated the cost of ObamaCare by nearly a trillion dollars. Anyone, who believes that was just an error in calculating, deserves another four years of Obama the not so great!

The urgent question: How in the hell did this incompetent, lying Marxist manage to deceive an entire nation?

Answer: Blame the Democrats AND the leftist media.

Congress MUST Investigate VP Biden Money Ties with Secret Service!



Satire by John W. Lillpop

The confluence of two new major breaking news stories involving the Secret Service is raising eyebrows in Washington as inquiring minds seek to get to the bottom of Joe Biden’s shadowy relationship with the Secret Service.

As reported, in part, at Reference 1:

 

Vice President Joe Biden last year earned $20,900 in rental income from the Secret Service, which is paying him to host agents on his property so they can protect him.

Biden’s Tax records list rental income of $20,900 from a "cottage" on his property, which is reportedly being leased by the Secret Service and paid for at a rate that could earn him even more money next year.

Biden took deductions for mortgage interest and taxes that allowed him to report only $12,653 of the amount on his federal tax return."

This disclosure comes just as a major scandal involving Secret Service agents and prostitutes is sending shock waves throughout the land.

As reported at Reference 2:

A source in the Secret Service told CBS News that one or more of the officers was involved with prostitutes and that there was a dispute over payment. One prostitute went to the police, who notified the State Department.

According to sources two of the Secret Service personnel sent home were supervisors; the rest were part of a detail assigned to logistics."

Obvious questions that must be answered in a public inquiry by Congress include:

( ) What did President Obama know and when did he know it?

( ) Just exactly was the Secret Service paying VP Biden for?

( ) Were "stimulus" funds involved? Sure as heck sounds as though there were plenty of stimuli handed out!

Until an investigation is completed and the results reported, Joe Biden should be required to return the $21,000 of tainted money to the Secret Service.

 
That is the American way!

George Zimmerman: Racist-Driven Killer, or Victim of Judicial Malpractice?


By John W. Lillpop

While Al Sharpton and his cronies celebrate the arrest of George Zimmerman for the murder of Trayvon Martin, one of the most brilliant legal minds in America believes that the case presented by Special Prosecutor Angela Corey is unethical and otherwise flawed and, therefore, is unlikely to result in a conviction.

Specifically, Alan Dershowitz, world famous legal scholar has stated, "The charging instrument filed against George Zimmerman is "unethical" and will never make it past a judge."

Strong words, indeed, from a man not known for right-wing outbursts.

As reported at reference 1, Dershowitz had plenty more to say about Angela Corey, the Special Prosecutor who seemed more interested in praising her staff than in assuring justice for all parties:

As Dershowitz points out, Second-degree murder under Florida law is defined as:


The unlawful killing of a human being, when perpetrated by any act imminently dangerous to another and evincing a depraved mind regardless of human life, although without any premeditated design to effect the death of any particular individual

Dershowitz’s point: There’s nothing in the charging instrument that suggests probable cause to believe Zimmerman had a "depraved mind regardless of human life" when he shot Martin. On the contrary, he notes, the facts as stated are consistent with self-defense. (Tellingly, there’s also no reference to Zimmerman’s injuries.) The prosecution can amend the affidavit to strengthen its case if the judge throws it out, but then you’re left wondering why they didn’t submit a more detailed affidavit in the first place."

As it is, if Dershowitz is right, Corey’s own affidavit’s about to be tossed by a judge and then she’ll have to answer for why she couldn’t even get to first base on a conviction.

Maybe her plan is to use the judge here as a get-out-of-tough-cases card? She probably knows she can’t get Zimmerman on murder two, but she also doesn’t want to be the one to have to break that to the public. She also doesn’t want to have to try to prosecute him on murder two if the evidence isn’t there, which would be a risk if the grand jury did indict him. So instead she’s taking the middle path: Go directly to the judge with a weak charging instrument and rely on him/her to throw it out. Then come back with a new affidavit listing a lesser charge — manslaughter or murder three — and say that she has no choice but to prosecute Zimmerman under that because the court stymied her on murder two. I’ll be curious to see what the fact pattern in those affidavits looks like because, frankly, if it’s as thin as the excerpt posted up top, I’m not sure she’ll get the court to sign off on those charges either."


Regardless of how this develops, it appears as though justice is a priority for Trayvon Martin, but not so important for George Zimmerman.

By the way Ms. Corey, why do you suppose George Zimmerman, allegedly a racist on the prowl for black blood to spill, phoned 9-1-1 during his pursuit of Trayvon Martin?

North Korea Launch: Another Foreign Policy "Success" for Obama?



By John W. Lillpop

Other than to loyal Friends of Barack (FOB) in the liberal media, the president’s much-ballyhooed program of "engagement" with Communist thugs in North Korea is correctly seen as a complete failure, nearly as dismal as the launch itself.

But whereas the wonky Korean missile disintegrated just moments after blast-off and disappeared into the sea forever, the crash and burn of Obama’s na├»ve and dangerous policy of appeasement remains as a permanent testimony to this blistering truth: Barack Obama has neither the talent nor character to be president.

Of course, administration sources, in concert with leftist media, will twist and turn the facts in order to spin the launch as another huge foreign policy "success" for the beleaguered Obama.

After all, they will argue, the launch was a "failure," right?

The fact that the rocket should not have even been fired will escape the truth sensors of Obamamites desperate for talking points.

Like the failed "stimulus," unacceptable rate of unemployment, deficit-ravaged economy, and anti-energy policies designed to bankrupt industry and citizens alike, Obama will be credited for non-existent accomplishments and will be held blameless for failures directly related to his wrong-minded policies and actions.

Given the fact that the liberal media are actively working to reelect Obama regardless of his record, it falls to conservatives to educate the American public on the urgent need to end Obama’s prolonged assault on our blessed nation and values.

 

 

 

Kim Jong Un: You’re NO Kim Yong-Il!

By John W. Lillpop

In a devastating blow to punks and me generation brats everywhere, North Korean President Kim Jong Un has embarrassed his nation and his generation with a humiliating display of incompetence rarely seen on the world stage.

Specifically, the rocket-launch that was supposed to establish North Korea as a major player in the world’s military power structure turned into an embarrassing fiasco which leaves the North Korean communists proving once again that communism is a failed ideology which stunts emotional and intellectual development.

As reported at the reference, in part:

North Korea's much hyped long-range rocket launch on Friday ended in apparent failure, South Korean officials said, dealing a blow to the prestige of the reclusive and impoverished state that defied international pressure to push ahead with the plan.
North Korea said it wanted the Unha-3 rocket to put a weather satellite into orbit, although critics believed it was designed to enhance the capacity of North Korea to design a ballistic missile deliver a nuclear warhead capable of hitting the continental United States.

A spokesman for the Defense Ministry in Seoul told journalists that the rocket had broken up and crashed into the sea a few minutes after launch.

Officials from  Japan confirmed the mission had failed, while ABC News cited U.S. officials saying it had failed, although there was no immediate indication of where it fell.
The rocket's flight was set to take it over a sea separating the Korean peninsula, with an eventual launch of a third stage of the rocket in seas near the Philippines that would have put the satellite into orbit.

This was North Korea's second consecutive failure to get a satellite into orbit, although it claimed success with a 2009 launch and there was no comment on the launch from North Korea's official media.

The Unha-3 rocket took off from a new launch site on the west coast of North Korea, near the Chinese border.

The launch had been timed to coincide with the 100th birthday celebrations of the isolated and impoverished state's founder, Kim Il-sung, and came after a food aid deal with the United States had hinted at an easing of tensions on the world's most militarized border."

So much for the 100th birthday of the nut ball who started this idiocy which has led to starvation and ruin of good people in North Korea.

By the way, a special shout-out is owed North Korea’s chubby boy-president: Un, You’re NO Kim Yong-Il!

And that's a GOOD thing.

Hilary Rosen Declares War on Families in Obama's Name!



By John W. Lillpop

Hillary Rosen earned her 15 minutes of fame (notoriety) by slamming tens of millions of American women who raise children and run households. Rosen, an out-of-touch left-winger who actually functions as a consultant to President Obama, attempted to ridicule and trivialize the role of American women who stay at home to raise children and run households.

Rosen even went so far as to accuse Ann Romney, mother of five boys, of "Not working a day in her life," an attack that expanded Obama’s "War on Women" to a full-throated "War on Family, Motherhood, traditional values, femininity" and other things good and precious in American culture.

Rosen’s faux pas is still reverberating throughout the nation with approximately 90 percent of all people—men and women—in sharp disagreement with the Obama hired hand and her extremist views.

Ms. Rosen’s insensitive, anti-woman assault should inspire a debate between Michele Obama and Ann Romney, wife of the presumptive GOP nominee, to address the issue in detail.

This is so because modern American political life has seen the wives of American presidents assume an ever- increasing role in the formulation and execution of U.S. policy. Indeed, strong women are now the norm, rather than the exception, when it comes to the First Lady.

Roslyn Carter, Nancy Reagan, Hillary Clinton, Barbara and Laura Bush, and Michelle Obama have significantly influenced the thinking and actions of their powerful husbands, sometimes wielding even more clout than the elected vice president and appointed cabinet officials.

Although the wife of the president is always un-elected and officially powerless, the American people have a vested interest in knowing the qualifications and credentials of those women who would be "First Lady."

Furthermore, the intelligence, knowledge, and articulation skills of the would-be First Lady will provide valuable insight into the judgment and wisdom of the presidential candidates. Informed voters should be able to examine the individual merits of the woman likely to exert the greatest influence on the "most powerful man in the world."

Which is why the prospective first ladies should debate the issues in detail and in view of the entire nation.

An Ann Romney versus Michele Obama debate would be exciting, informative and would shed light on the "War on Women" rhetoric used by Obama and the Democrats.

It might even decide the eventual winner of the 2012 election!

Revival 111 of Newt Gingrich Campaign off to Ominious Start

By John W. Lillpop

Republican Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich made headline news on Easter Sunday with what sounded very much like a concession speech to foe Mitt Romney.

As reported at the reference:


Newt Gingrich said the attacks that have passed between him and Mitt Romney are just “part of the business” of running for president. “I hit him as hard as I could; he hit me as hard as he could,” Gingrich said. “Turns out he had more things to hit with than I did. That’s part of the business.”

He added that the two share a common goal. “We are absolutely committed to defeating Barack Obama,” he said. “This is the most important election, in some ways, since 1860. Barack Obama’s a genuine radical.”


Those words were widely interpreted to mean that Gingrich was in no mood to pursue his third revival of the campaign. A most appropriate message, indeed, for Easter.

No one can be certain, but Gingrich’s move may have been a premeditated dirty trick to lure Rick Santorum into the loser’s circle, thereby improving Newt’s damn near impossible odds, even if ever so slightly.

Newt’s dirty trick worked like a charm as Santorum took the bait and suspended his campaign on Monday.

Before the tears had time to dry following the Santorum surrender, Newt was before the cameras and microphones to issue a grand appeal for Santorum delegates and MONEY, mostly the latter, with these words from reference 2:

I humbly ask Senator Santorum’s supporters to visit Newt.org to review my conservative record and join us as we bring these values to Tampa,” Mr. Gingrich’s statement continued. The former House speaker’s web site, like most candidates’, puts its funding pitch front and center.
On a Sunday talk show this weekend, Mr. Gingrich was speaking in the past tense about his campaign. But in today’s statement, he said: “I am committed to staying in this race all the way to Tampa so that the conservative movement has a real choice. We know well that only a conservative can protect life, defend the Constitution, restore jobs and growth and return to a balanced budget.”
So, for the third time in just a few months, Gingrich rose from the dead (politically) and, this time, taunted Santorum by echoing the battle cry, “GAME ON”.

Of course, the first few words of Newt’s spiel were a dead give away as to the evil in Gingrich’s heart.

To wit, when has Newt Gingrich ever “Humbly” asked for anything?

Now we have even more ominous news to report.

As reported at Reference 3, in part, the man who would promise to return the US to a balanced budget apparently has troubles balancing his own campaign check book:

Utah Elections Director Mark Thomas said a designated agent for the Gingrich campaign brought the filing papers and a check for $500 in March, but the state was notified by the bank that the check had bounced. He said the office has tried to contact the Gingrich campaign through the telephone number and email provided on the application, but has not received a response.

Recently, the state sent a certified letter to the campaign, stating that if the fee isn’t paid by April 20, Gingrich will be disqualified and will not be on the ballot.”

Thus continues the Gingrich saga where these words seem appropriate: THREE STRIKES AND YOU'RE OUT!
