Pelosi: ‘Republicans want immortality’ – nasty rich people

Pelosi has lots to say about the nasty rich. Yes, a reminder of what is heading up the Dems in the House. You will not be disappointed with this rare footage that appeared on Bill O’Reilly last evening. Recall the evil rich? “The rich won’t pay taxes because they want to be immortal”. So she says! Let me set the stage for the clip:

House Speaker’s Military Travel Cost the United States Air Force $2,100,744.59 over a Two-Year Period, Including $101,429 for In-Flight Expenses.

Purchases for the CODEL included: Johnny Walker Red scotch, Grey Goose vodka, E&J brandy, Bailey’s Irish Crème, Maker’s Mark whiskey, Courvoisier cognac, Bacardi Light rum, Jim Beam whiskey, Beefeater gin, Dewars scotch, Bombay Sapphire gin, Jack Daniels whiskey, Corona beer and several bottles of wine.

“Speaker Pelosi has a history of wasting taxpayer funds with her boorish demands for military travel. And these documents suggest the Speaker’s congressional delegations are more about partying than anything else,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

Judicial Watch previously obtained internal DOD email correspondence detailing attempts by DOD staff to accommodate Pelosi’s numerous requests for military escorts and military aircraft as well as the speaker’s last minute cancellations and changes.More at Judicial Watch

Labor Dept. Signs ‘Partnerships’ with Foreign Gov’s to Protect Illegal Workers in U.S UPDATE

Barrister D responded in the comment section to my call for a Lawyer- check it out.

Any Lawyers out there? What in the world is a signing statement with other countries? The Secretary of Labor enters into agreements? What part of the Constitution did I miss on this one? Talk about open borders. Come on down, or over, or whatever way you can get here and it is all yours. Welcome to the USA. Wow, they are really turning up the heat on getting illegals over here.

U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis today signed “partnership” agreements with ambassadors from a group of Latin American nations aiming to protect what she described as the labor rights of both legal and illegal migrants working in the United States.

America’s Watchtower breaks the action down . Check out the rest of his post:

But there is another problem, and it is even more troubling than the first because Article II, Section 2 of the constitution also states that the Senate must approve the treaty by a 2/3 majority. This was done to ensure that the president did not become to powerful in foreign affairs. But this new “agreement” was never voted on by the Senate, so while Hilda Solis speaking on behalf of the president, and while she secured this agreement in Barack Obama’s name this agreement should have been sent to the Senate for an up or down vote.

In her address at the signing ceremony, Solis asserted that all migrant workers have a “right to a legal wage”–even though the Labor Department itself states that under U.S. law, the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), “employers may hire only persons who may legally work in the United States (i.e., citizens and nationals of the U.S.) and aliens authorized to work in the U.S.”

“We understand that many migrant workers in America are afraid to report mistreatment because it can lead to more abuse, the loss of job, a job, or deportation,” she said. “With these partnerships we seek to remove those fears.

Texas Perry and his Globalist Policies – Agenda 21?

Gulag Bound posted this story on Perry back on August the 18th. I have been waiting for someone, anyone but me to pick it up and move it along. I didn’t want to break a bubble, or give the Dems ammo, or be accused of being one of the tin foil hat crowd. Ok… no one is game, so I will. I have gone to the orginal sources, so here we go, so it looks like Gulag has this one down. You decide, is it just some conspiracy story? Meanwhile, the Dems are painting Perry as dumb. Ed over at Hot Air – Gee aren’t Republicans dumb meme, may be onto somthing, though, Perry, is dumb as a fox.

Texas “Open for Business”
While Perry is staking his campaign on Texas being the top net jobs creator, Perry’s version of Texas being “Open for Business” isn’t about low taxes and less regulation as much as it is about doing business with foreign companies, including selling off Texas’ sovereign land and public assets to foreign creditors, an issue which Perry’s first television ad uses to take aim at President Obama.

Aside from the P3s,- (Public-Private Partnerships) Texas has 20 active deals going with the Chinese and has 32 foreign trade zones (FTZs), a vehicle to ease the flow of foreign goods into the United States that are chalk full of tax breaks for importers. RH Group:

China Investment Monitor

An interactive view of Chinese investment in the United States by industry, year and more. Try it out

Perry’s office promoted these FTZs in a document entitled Foreign Trade Zones: Texas Wide Open for Business  Texas leads the Nation with 31 FTZ’s more than any other State– be sure and look at the above link for detail.

A recent Washington Post article  titled” “Perry welcomed Chinese firm despite security concerns”-  documents Perry’s work to get Chinese government-owned telecommunications company Huawei, to base its U.S. operations in Texas, a company that the U.S. government has deemed a threat to national security noting that “three times since 2008, a U.S. government security panel has blocked Huawei from acquiring or partnering with U.S. companies because of concerns that secrets could be leaked to China’s government or military.”

After a months-long courtship that included a trip to China, where he dined with the company’s chief executive, Perry announced that telecommunications firm Huawei Technologies would base its U.S. operations in Plano. In a video of that October 2010 event — now playing on YouTube, courtesy of the governor’s office — Perry praised the company’s “really strong worldwide reputation” and its chairman, Ren Zhengfei, whose straight talk he said reminded him fondly of West Texans.

Three times since 2008, a U.S. government security panel has blocked Huawei from acquiring or partnering with U.S. companies because of concerns that secrets could be leaked to China’s government or military.

Please take the time to watch this video for the investment China has made in Texas, including  600,000 acres in the Texas oil fields.

Perry’s coziness with the Chinese and foreign investors exposes a huge weakness in his right flank — illegal immigration and open borders. The Trans Texas Corridor has been linked to the global plan to economically integrate North America, with the eventual goal of a common security perimeter modeled after the European Union. Perry ushered in in-state tuition for illegals and has long been an obstacle to immigration reform or any Arizona-style immigration law. As  Gulag Bound adds:

Perry’s record paints a much different picture than what candidate Perry would have us believe — that he’s a states rights, Constitutionally limited government conservative that’s responsible for the “Texas miracle.” In reality, he’s more like an Agenda 21 globalist willing to sell America to the highest bidder.

For more, look at earlier posts Rick Perry watch for the dishhonest tell  for more on his Trans-Texas Corridor and  Rick Perry supports Bi-National Health Insurance with Mexico and Romney? Think again.— 

If you think things are going to be better with Romney, think again: From Washington Post article 

Front-runner Mitt Romney has vowed to “get tough” on trade with China and called the superpower one of the “worst offenders” of global trade rules, suggesting in an interview that the United States must clamp down on China’s use of pirated technologies.

Romney’s former investment company, Bain Capital, worked on behalf of at least two Chinese companies trying to acquire U.S. technology firms. One case involved Huawei, which Bain joined in its failed bid to buy the software firm 3Com. Romney left Bain Capital in 1999, and aides say he had no role in those deals.

Tampa Mayor takes SUV from man not guilty of a crime

The power is back on in Bunkerville! Back to the surreal world of the Blogosphere where reality meets with those nasty illusions. Hope all my homies are fine and dandy.

I have always been troubled with the seizing of the druggies property by the government.  Having gone to a couple of auctions which were supposedly drug dealers property, a nagging question was there. I knew that no guilt was proven always, but hey, bigger things to worry about then some nasty folks doing wrong, and then having their stuff taken.  Now that we have entered the Obama world view, that all stuff is to be distributed as he sees fit, maybe its time to pay more attention to this process going down. Question: Did they really need this guy’s SUV to prove his crime?  Here tis:  

 H/T: The Agitator

  • Tampa mayor drives around town in an SUV seized from a man who has yet to be convicted of any crime.

Civil asset forfeiture the practice wherein law enforcement and the government at large take possession of property seized during illegal activities (or allegedly legal activities; remember that whole “innocent until proven guilty” thing?).If you get arrested, you may get your day in court and found not guilty, but don’t count on using your stuff. That’s for the important guys like Tampa mayor Bob Buckhorn, Tampa police give mayor city issued car:

Mayor Bob Buckhorn’s city vehicle, a jet black GMC Yukon Denali with tinted windows, was seized from a man charged last month with sex trafficking, sexual battery and forcing someone to become a prostitute.

Tampa police seized the SUV on Sept. 28 during their investigation. In addition to transporting prostitutes and the proceeds of prostitution, the SUV was purchased from proceeds of prostitution, police maintain in court documents. In a letter, Fox denied that, saying a cousin’s husband bought the SUV at a Clearwater car auction.

Buckhorn pulled the gas guzzler from the department’s forfeiture fleet in April, the same month he took office. It has about 105,000 miles on its odometer and averages about 14 miles per gallon.

Fox sounds like a creep, but here in America we have a right to trial. Legally speaking, the mayor is driving a vehicle taken from an innocent man. But rest assured that Buckhorn had good reasons for picking this treat out of TPD’s stable:

“The reason I drive it – number one is because I have a family. I have young kids who travel with me a lot and I need a car that’s safe,” Buckhorn said. “Secondarily, as you can see we often travel with staff and we get a lot of work done while we’re traveling. It’s easy to do work in a larger car. Thirdly, in the event of a hurricane I need a vehicle that can get though high water, get through debris, get me to a zone where we can take care of business.”

Obama Justice Department Shuts Down Gibson Guitar For Breaking Indian Law

The Dictator ship begins.  No U.S. Law Broken. No Charges filed. Want to bet the International Court next? This will be the test case. This was Eric at his best. Do  not count on our supreme court.

“The Federal Department of Justice in Washington, D.C. has suggested that the use of wood from India that is not finished by Indian workers is illegal, not because of U.S. law, but because it is the Justice Department’s interpretation of a law in India. (If the same wood from the same tree was finished by Indian workers, the material would be legal.) This action was taken without the support and consent of the government in India.”

It’s an Obama world…
The Holder Justice Department raided Gibson Guitar facilities in Nashville and Memphis this week because the company is using unfinished wood from India and this violates Indian law… Not American law.
Unreal. Video Here: Gateway Pundit

The Gibson Guitar CEO responded to the unjust raids today:

Henry Juszkiewicz, Chairman and CEO of Gibson Guitar Corp., has responded to the August 24 raid of Gibson facilities in Nashville and Memphis by the Federal Government. In a press release, Juszkiewicz said: “Gibson is innocent and will fight to protect its rights. Gibson has complied with foreign laws and believes it is innocent of ANY wrong doing. We will fight aggressively to prove our innocence.”

The raids forced Gibson to cease manufacturing operations and send workers home for the day while armed agents executed the search warrants. “Agents seized wood that was Forest Stewardship Council controlled,” Juszkiewicz said. “Gibson has a long history of supporting sustainable and responsible sources of wood and has worked diligently with entities such as the Rainforest Alliance and Greenpeace to secure FSC-certified supplies. The wood seized on August 24 satisfied FSC standards.”

Juszkiewicz believes that the Justice Department is bullying Gibson without filing charges. Full story here at Gateway Pundit

DHS Giving $2.1B in ‘Preparedness Grants’ to Cities, Indian Tribes, Non-Profits

Don’t you just love these grants? Yet funds are being slashed for the Coast Guard to patrol our Borders. Better yet, have them tasked with working on “Global Warming”. I went through a couple of posts last year to point out the deft skill Janet has displayed in making security decisions. Better to give out money. Actually, it is the only skill set this Administration really has.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano on Wednesday announced that her department has allocated more than $2.1 billion to 12 “federal preparedness” grant programs for Fiscal Year 2011.

From 2002 through 2011, more than $32.1 billion has been awarded in preparedness grants to help strengthen and protect the homeland. CNS News

Big Sis- Cutting the Coast Guards elite team that patrols our ports.

At a recent hearing, Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), ranking member on the committee, said she was shocked that the Obama administration’s budget for the Department of Homeland Security for fiscal year 2011 cuts funding for the U.S. Coast Guard while asking for $200 million for security for the Sheikh Mohammed trial.

 When asked by ranking minority leader Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) why the DHS budget spends money on securing the trials of terrorists in the U.S. while cutting funding for U.S. Coast Guard, Napolitano defended the Obama administration’s stance on the matter.

Collins said “Decommissioning part of the Coast Guard’s 13th elite maritime security safety teams that protect waterfront cities makes absolutely no sense given the threats to our ports,” Check Out: Coast Guard wants to slash homland Security

In the memo, Papp said he wants to eliminate teams that are trained to respond to and prevent terror attacks. These teams also train other Coast Guard forces on counterterrorism operations.

“In view of the fiscal horizon, we must make bold and systematic strategic decisions,” Papp wrote in the memo, dated Nov. 10, 2009. Obama.

The memo, marked “sensitive — for internal Coast Guard use only,” was obtained by The Associated Press.

He also calls for cuts to the Coast Guard’s largest homeland security operation, which patrols critical infrastructure and other sensitive security structures on or near waterways. And he would decrease the number of specialized units stationed in key coastal areas where an attack could be devastating.

Obama has already proposed closing five of the 12 specialized units in 2011.

Papp’s outline is significant because it could mean major changes for the more than 200-year-old agency that took on substantial homeland security duties after Sept. 11, 2001. Obama’s 2011 proposed budget cuts for the Coast Guard have already caused outrage from some lawmakers. News Max

DHS strips Coast Guard of Border Security, but will now do Global Warming

“She is creating a new department under Homeland Security called the Climate Change and Adaptation Task Force, which will be tasked with “identifying and assessing the impact that climate change could have on the missions and operations of the Department of Homeland Security.”

Janet Napalitano: “Many USCG [Coast Guard] and Customs and Border Protection facilities, by their mission, are located in the coastal zone which will be adversely impacted by sea level rise.  Costs will increase for protecting existing facilities from the impacts of sea level rise and some facilities might have to be abandoned in the longer term.” What assistance can the Coast Guard bring to bear to assist remote villages in, for example, Alaska which already have been negatively affected by changes up in the Arctic?” CNS News

Tea Party Terrorists in Waco, Texas

Waco, Texas, now that sure rings a bell.  That is not the place to put attention upon. It was a location, a town, and a reminder, of all that could go wrong with the Government, and the ATF in particular. Ruby Ridge, Gun Runner, Walker, or whatever you want to call  it. All brought to us by a Government out of control.

H/T:Big Government

From Accuracy in Media’s Ben Johnson:

Have you ever been taken hostage by an 86 year old white haired lady in pink glasses?  I have.  I am lucky to be alive today and writing this after my near death experience with the terrorists of the Tea Party in Waco, TX.  AIM present’s to you, the face of evil in America.

The Tea Party movement is not a militia, it is 55% women, most with children. They are educated and caring Americans that simply want the Constitution returned. They all understand that violence is not acceptable, against others, or against the government. It is also unnecessary. The ballot box will do just fine.

Those on the left, like Clinton, seem to be longing for the violence to come. Perhaps because they realize they are going to lose power without spilling a single drop of blood, and there is nothing they can do about it. At least if they were to incite violence, the government would have a reason to step in and shut down the protests. VA Right

Obama and his Vineyard Friends – Ogletree, Comcast

Yes, just checking up on how the vacation is moving along. Good old Valerie Jarrett is out there tooling around with Obama and some of Obama’s best buds. Recall what we just learned about Valerie?  Valerie Jarrett’s Father-in-Law head of Communist Youth?

President Barack Obama put in a brief appearance Saturday at the home of his friend and one-time teacher, Harvard Law School professor Charles Ogletree, as he continued his Martha’s Vineyard vacation.

Glenn Beck Comments:

The president with Charles Ogletree. Who is he? Well, he was a prominent lawyer, he still is; professor of Harvard University. He’s a respected guy.

But let’s look at his past. He grew up in California. He went to college in the early 1970s. He attended Stanford University.

It was when he was at Stanford University that he started hating the elitism of the university, and became involved in the Black Power movement — Black Power. It emphasized the radical pride and promoted black collective interest.

Now, I recognize some of that language, because of the Black Panther — the original, not the new guys, the original. A lot of it is the same language. But they don’t mix, OK?

He edited the Black Panther newspaper. Here’s a copy of it, The Real News. OK? He was an editor.

Ogletree also attended every single day of the trial of this woman. This woman is Angela Davis, OK? She was a Black Power activist.

She was also a communist. You might remember her name. She was fired from UCLA in 1969 after she admitted she was a communist. More of the Glenn Beck story over at Fox News  

 Charles Ogletree not only was a black panther. He is also the lawyer of Henry Louis Gates, who’s racism caused the beer summit. Ogletree’s daughter Rashida was recently hired into Holder’s Justice Department as a lawyer. Ogletree is still a militant leftist and is still called on by the Obamas for advice. H/T: Pat Dollard

Then we motor over to see Mr. Roberts of Comcast. Recall this chapter in the life of Obama?

Slowly, we are learning more about the merger of Comcast and NBC. Not that NBC could carry George Soros’s water any more than they do, but it is stunning that there is no shame. Of course the next step will be to throttle Fox News. In my opinion, they already have made good strides in that direction. Here tis:

Under the terms of the FCC order approving Comcast’s takeover of NBCU, at least half of NBC’s 10 O&Os have to find a nonprofit news center with which to work within the next year. The order cites the alliance as the model for what it would like to see in other NBC markets.

Proponents of the growing nonprofit news movement are hoping that NBC’s FCC-mandated efforts will bear fruit and encourage other commercial TV stations to seek out nonprofit partners. From FCC orders Newsrooms to partner with Soros funded non-profits

Now on to the road trip:

The presidential motorcade on Martha’s Vineyard peeled out of Blue Heron Farms at 5:15 p.m. with the president and Valerie Jarrett in tow.

After 10 minutes, we made an abrupt left turn on John Cottle Road — an unpaved, deeply rutted eight-foot-wide private path hemmed in by ivy, scrub oak and big, scary boulders.

After bottoming out four times — we’re talking two-foot holes in a sand-and-gravel road, along with one hairpin turn — Obama and Jarrett arrived at the West Tisbury home of their friends Brian and Aileen Roberts, spokesman Josh Earnest informs us. It was 5:30 p.m.

Roberts is chairman and CEO of Comcast. H/T: Politico:

Libyan Gaddafi and his Amazon Body Guards – Where are they?

Update: China Smack is reporting that some of the guards have been murdered. Warning graphic pictures. Looks like the site is getting too many hits, or is doing a lot of blocking– google it and you may have better luck if you cannot link in.

According to information organized by a Middle Eastern website, the first fled with her boyfriend but was caught by the opposition and shot dead, the two of them dying together. The second was identified despite her makeup/disguise and was beaten to death. The third was kidnapped by the opposition’s soldiers, viciously tortured and gang-raped for days before being strangled to death with the words “the fate for Gaddafi’s whores” beside her, her body rotting when discovered. At this moment Gaddafi was still on the run!

Previous report:

So where in the world are Gaddafi’s lovelies? We worry. Did they escape with him? On the run? Holed up?  I have scoured the wires, nothing. Not to worry, I am on the job. UPDATE: I said I would not let you down: Planet Washington:

Navy Seals To Face Gaddafi Body Guard (humor)

US Navy Seals anticipate facing Colonel Gaddafi’s infamous all-female body guard, dubbed The Amazonian Guard, as they fight the final battle for Tripoli.  A video of the contest, ‘Guards Gone Wild,’ is available for pre-order on The Learning Channel ($19.95).

The back story  now:

Choosing the members of the Amazonian guard is a little more involved than simply placing a mildly coherent Craigslist ad. For one, every member must, allegedly, be a virgin hand picked by Gaddafi, and must then undergo extensive martial arts and firearms training at a special academy before becoming official members of the force.

The bodyguards dress in military-inspired guard, wearing either khaki jumpsuits or fatigues with red berets… as well as make-up, polished nails and jewelry, even when on the job. H/T and more: Mediaite  For more on the Amazonians Here

Obama’s Friday’s Orders -Just one day, Diversity, EPA

The usual Friday dump of our Leader’s new edicts and orders. While our heads were turned for our weekend break, the behemoth moves on. Looks like August will be a match for July when Obama unleashed 608 regulations in July, costs 9.5 Billion.

Maggie’s Notebook has done a great deal of work breaking down the Diversity bit– slide on over.

Considering who pays taxes or should (those who work, or should), in 2004, 83% of all income taxes paid-in came from White taxpayers; Blacks 13%, Hispanics 10%, Asians 3.6%. That means 40% of taxpayers, even if they are zero-tax-filers, are other than White. If you think it isn’t relevant that Whites pay 83% of all taxes, even though we are only 63.7% of the population, including children who pay no taxes, (meaning White taxpayers number less than 63.7% considerably), then you likely approve of Social Justice


President Obama did just that on Thursday with an order designed to coordinate a “government-wide initiative to promote diversity and inclusion in the federal workforce.” Executive order 13583 creates a council of deputy agency chiefs and federal workers charged with developing a government-wide plan to improve diversity in recruitment, training, and promotion of federal workers, all due within 90 days. After that, each federal agency will have 120 days to develop guidelines of their own.

It’s about time, too.  According to the Federal Office of Personnel Management, minorities represent only 38.8 percent of the federal workforce and a mere 43.9 percent of the federal workforce is female.

It’s a national disgrace, but hopefully, this bold act of leadership will start to right the wrongs.  After all, if the EEOC has the courage to fight for the rights of dwarfs who can’t see over the counter at Starbucks, surely the Federal Government can ensure that there are more people of color answering the phones at the IRS.  Business Insider 


In January, he signed an executive order directing agencies to use the “least burdensome tools” that take “into account benefits and cost” and “[promote] economic growth … and job creation.”

Either the Environmental Protection Agency didn’t get the memo or it was lost under the growing stack of regulations the agency is advancing at record speed.

Last week, the EPA said it would soon release updated ozone regulations that are going to kill jobs and impose substantial costs on the U.S. economy – at least $90 billion, by its own estimates, and $1 trillion annually between 2020 and 2030 according to industry estimates. Washington Tmes

Need another one? Syria
Executive order 13582 should do it.  It freezes the assets of the Syrian government in the U.S., imposes sanctions on the import of Syrian oil and forbids American investment there.

Of course, Syria is only ranked 31st in Oil production worldwide, right behind Ecuador, and 90% of that oil goes elsewhere, but it sounds good and no one will know.  Better issue a tough statement too, condemning “the disgraceful attacks on Syrian civilians”.  Do it in writing though, so you don’t have to answer any questions.  Send Hillary out there:  she loves those microphones.

Immigration: And of course. Let’s blow off Congress with:

Sure, you’ve on record as saying that you don’t have the authority to halt deportations and that you’re required to follow the laws as Congress passed them, but that kind of thinking is such 20th century stuff. Janet can blow that away.

Have her write a letter to Congress saying that she has the discretion to focus on “priorities”, and that she and the Justice Department will review all the ongoing cases to see who meets the new criteria. Just tell her to say something like “This case-by-case approach will enhance public safety”.
