Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

You know, there is a distinct possibility that Obama really doesn't know what's going on around him. The 'puppet' theory might be closer to the truth than previously thought. Instead of the media being in his back pocket, the reverse may be the case - but I doubt it.
The "puppet" theory comes as no surprise to me and a lot of other people. I, myself, have been saying since November 2008 he just a front man and carefully selected by the powers that be. Others have called him an "empty suit" for the same amount of time.

He said he heard about the IRS targeting his opposition in the news at the same time along with the rest of us.

Seriously? Doesn't he have daily briefings by all departments in his administration? And he was never given a heads up by the Treasury Department that the IRS debacle was about to be exposed?

I find that incredulous and very distrubing at the same time.

The IRS & he right whiner groups.
After Citizen's United SC decision, thousands of groups were looking for tax exempt status as a way of funding political campaigns.
Under the code for that type of tax exempt organization, the IRS defines it as:
"the promotion of social welfare does not include direct or indirect participation or intervention in political campaigns on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for public office." That said, "a section 501(c)(4) social welfare organization may engage in some political activities, so long as that is not its primary activity."
So, how do you determine if these political agendas were not the primary activity?
All churches and pacs should lose tax exempt status.

They are still doing it today! All Saints Pasadena Rector Condemns “Evangelical Zionism,” Israel

December 13, 2012

On December 15, All Saints Episcopal Church of Pasadena hosted the annual convention of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, a group with Muslim Brotherhood origins and a controversial past. The question of why All Saints would collaborate with this specific group persisted. The answer came during the event when Reverend Ed Bacon listed “acts of evil” committed by Christians and included “evangelical Zionism.”

The first hint of a political objective behind this interfaith gathering came during a December 6 press conference. Salam al-Marayati, the president of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), said that his organization seeks to help the U.S. act as an “honest broker” for peace in the Middle East. This is a soft way of saying that the U.S. must take a tough stand towards Israel, as evidenced by MPAC’s record of anti-Israel activism. The All Saints Episcopal Church leadership was standing with him. You can watch the useful idiot libs for yourself.

They're so appalled about the IRS story!! As if this has never been done before! Wiretaps? They never heard of such a thing? Was this a national wake up to these neanderthals the moment a black man got into the White House?
They're all excited, planning a double lynching of President Obama and Eric Holder.
Sickening beyond words.
It's hard to tell who's MORE appalled - Democrats or Republicans.

Are you paying attention to what Democrats are saying? Even die hard Democrats? Their outrage is quite astonishing.

Actually, the only other time this has been done before - deliberately targeting the opposition using the IRS - was under the Nixon administration.

You know how that story ended.

So,why aten't you running down the street screaming " OMG OMG cover up! Cover up" whrn Bush must have lied to invade Afghanistan???
Well???
God your a moran! The invasion was prior. We were bombing Torra Borra remember. It's just my opinion but I believe he crossed into Pakistan and was captured leaving Bush to deal with the Taliban and other people supporting terrorist. Like the IRA and Saddam. Remember the bombs going off all the time in Great Britain? Well that stopped. Right then. Right there. Saddam was paying the families of Palestinian suicide bombers $25,000 For blowing themselves up in Israel. Those come to a complete stop and they turned to rockets. You libtard morans cherry your history.

Bush said "Our enemy is a radical network of terrorist, and every government who supports them. Our war on terror begins with Al Qaeda, but does not end there. It will not end until every terrorist group of global reach has been found, stopped, and defeated."

Obama Killing Golden Eagles for Politics
CONVERSE COUNTY, Wyo.– The Obama administration has never fined or prosecuted a wind farm for killing eagles and other protected bird species, shielding the industry from liability and helping keep the scope of the deaths secret, an Associated Press investigation has found.
More than 573,000 birds are killed by the country's wind farms each year, including 83,000 hunting birds such as hawks, falcons and eagles, according to an estimate published in March in the peer-reviewed Wildlife Society Bulletin.
Each death is federal crime, a charge that the Obama administration has used to prosecute oil companies when birds drown in their waste pits, and power companies when birds are electrocuted by their power lines. No wind energy company has been prosecuted, even those that repeatedly flout the law.
Wind power, a pollution-free energy intended to ease global warming, is a cornerstone of President Barack Obama's energy plan. His administration has championed a $1 billion-a-year tax break to the industry that has nearly doubled the amount of wind power in his first term.
The large death toll at wind farms shows how the renewable energy rush comes with its own environmental consequences, trade-offs the Obama administration is willing to make in the name of cleaner energy.
"It is the rationale that we have to get off of carbon, we have to get off of fossil fuels, that allows them to justify this," said Tom Dougherty, a long-time environmentalist who worked for nearly 20 years for the National Wildlife Federation in the West, until his retirement in 2008. "But at what cost? In this case, the cost is too high."
Documents and emails obtained by The Associated Press offer glimpses of the problem: 14 deaths at seven facilities in California, five each in New Mexico and Oregon, one in Washington state and another in Nevada, where an eagle was found with a hole in its neck, exposing the bone.
One of the deadliest places in the country for golden eagles is Wyoming, where federal officials said wind farms had killed more than four dozen golden eagles since 2009, predominantly in the southeastern part of the state. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to disclose the figures. Getting precise figures is impossible because many companies aren't required to disclose how many birds they kill. And when they do, experts say, the data can be unreliable.
Obama's first Wyoming wind farm opened in 1999 and several others came on line beginning in 2001. wyomingenergynews.com has some interesting articles if you're up for it.

After over four hours of debate, the Minnesota Senate voted 37-30 on Monday to pass marriage equality legislation, cementing Minnesota as the 12th state to recognize the marriages of same-sex couples. The vote was largely along party lines, with only three Democrats voting no and only one Republican, Sen. Branden Petersen, voted yes. The House passed the bill on Thursday with a 75-59 vote, and Gov. Mark Dayton (DFL) has promised to sign it as early as Tuesday. It will take effect August 1st.
