First announced stop on Obama's Midwest bus tour: Iowa [Freep Alert.....]

First announced stop on Obama's Midwest bus tour: Iowa [Freep Alert.....]:

"First announced stop on Obama's Midwest bus tour: Iowa By Jamie Klatell - 08/05/11 06:37 PM ET

The first announced stop on President Obama's upcoming bus tour of the Midwest will be in Peosta, Iowa, the White House announced Friday.

'[T]he President and members of his Cabinet will host the White House Rural Economic Forum at Northeast Iowa Community College,' a White House statement read. 'The Forum will bring together small business owners, private sector leaders, rural organizations and government officials to discuss ideas and initiatives to promote economic growth, accelerate hiring, and spur innovation in rural communities and small towns across the nation.'

Obama will embark on a three-day tour from Aug. 15 - 17. The administration said Wednesday that the trip had long been planned, but did not outline an itinerary beyond saying the stops would be in the Midwest.

The president will be in Iowa only days after the Ames Straw Poll, which is the generally seen as the first big test for the field of Republican hopefuls looking to challenge Obama in 2012.

The White House is billing the bus trip as an administration event, and it will run the operation, not Obama’s reelection campaign."

Working families across the country are angry at the partisan attacks pursued by politicians in Washington and in state capitals instead of action to tackle the tough issues most important to working people: creating jobs and restoring balance in our economy.

Tea Party: Liberals Want to "Break the Back of Conservatives" in Wisconsin:

"The tea party arrives in Wisconsin today, kicking off a four-day tour to rouse conservative voters and help protect the six imperiled Republican state senators facing recall elections on August 9. Spearheaded by the Tea Party Express, the 'Restoring Common Sense' tour brings together four different conservative groups—TPX, Tea Party Nation, FreedomWorks, and the Patriot Action Network—and plans to hit nine cities in what the groups see as a crucial battle to keep the GOP senators in office, and thus prevent Democrats from jamming up Republican Governor Scott Walker's agenda."

Free cell phones are now a civil right

Free cell phones are now a civil right:

"Pennsylvanians on public assistance now have a new ‘civil right’ — free cell phones. Meanwhile, the rest of us get to pay higher cell bills as a result.

Recently, a federal government program called the Universal Service Fund came to the Keystone State and some residents are thrilled because it means they can enjoy 250 minutes a month and a handset for free, just because they don’t have the money to pay for it. Through Assurance Wireless and SafeLink from Tracfone Wireless these folks get to reach out and touch someone while the cost of their service is paid for by everyone else. You see, the telecommunications companies are funding the Universal Service Fund to the tune of $4 billion a year because the feds said they have to and in order to recoup their money, the companies turn around and hike their fees to paying customers.

But those of use paying for the free service for the poor, should be happy about this infuriating situation, says Gary Carter, manager of national partnerships for Assurance, because “the program is about peace of mind.”

Free cell service means “one less bill that someone has to pay, so they can pay their rent or for day care…it is a right to have peace of mind,” Cater explained."

'Hundreds of young black people beating white people'

'Hundreds of young black people beating white people':

"WEST ALLIS - Witnesses tell Newsradio 620 WTMJ and TODAY'S TMJ4 of a mob of young people attacking innocent fair-goers at the end of the opening night of State Fair, with some callers claiming a racially-charged scene.

Milwaukee Police confirmed there were assaults outside the fair.

Witnesses' accounts claim everything from dozens to hundreds of young black people beating white people as they left State Fair Thursday night.

Authorities have not given official estimates of the number of people involved in the attacks. 'It looked like they were just going after white guys, white people,' said Norb Roffers of Wind Lake in an interview with Newsradio 620 WTMJ. He left the State Fair Entrance near the corner of South 84th Street and West Schlinger Avenue in West Allis.

Allen West's Birthday Message to Obama

Allen West's Birthday Message to Obama:

"Congressman Allen West (FL-22) released this statement today:

“Happy 50th Birthday Mr. President! While surprises are for birthdays, it is no surprise to the American people that your failed economic policies –- from TARP to your health care bill–- have resulted in disaster for our economy.

Since taking office, unemployment has remained at or near 9 percent for 28 months, America has added $3.4 trillion in debt in 29 months -- the equivalent of about $4 billion per day -- we have an anemic housing market with record foreclosures, and an average price of nearly $4 for a gallon of gas. Even your budget did not receive one single vote in the United States Senate -- and the icing on the cake –- a stock market slide of nearly 800 points in the last 5 days.

While it may be hard to hear the American people’s frustration over the pop of the champagne corks and R&B bands at your $30,000/person birthday party, the citizens of this nation are suffering under your failed leadership.

The best present you can give the American people will be for you and your failed economic policies to be defeated in November of 2012.”

The Masses Rise Up

The Masses Rise Up:

"Mudslinging: Al Gore says we need an 'American Spring' to match the dubious Arab Spring. If his liberal friends stopped calling the Tea Partyers terrorists, they might realize that our uprising is a Tea Party Summer.

Former Vice President Al 'massive carbon footprint' Gore has peddled an awful lot of nonsense, much of it dressed up in slick Hollywood packaging. The dishonest animation of man-made global warming sinking Florida into the Atlantic Ocean in his film 'An Inconvenient Truth' comes to mind.

Now Gore tells a once-prominent left-wing TV host that 'we need to have an American Spring ... nonviolent change, where people from the grass roots get involved again.'

According to Gore, 'our democracy has been withering on the vine' and 'the only thing that can get our country back on the right track' is if 'the people who care about the values that this country was based on will rise up and get much more involved in the democratic process.'

Leave aside the fact that the 'Arab Spring' that President Obama's foreign policy has produced could end up transforming U.S. friends such as Egypt into Islamofascist terror states. Fact is, what Gore is calling for — nonviolent, grassroots activism by people devoted to the values of the Founding Fathers — describes the Tea Party, well, to a T.

August 5, 2011 Gunny G

In the early 1800′s Congress was considering a bill to give tax dollars to the widow of a well-loved military officer. Davy Crockett rose to address Congress after many speeches advocating the allocation. He said: “Mr. Speaker…. I will not go into an argument to prove that Congress has no power to appropriate this money as an act of charity. Every member upon this floor knows it.

We have the right, as individuals to give away as much of our own money as we please in charity, but as members of Congress we have no right to so appropriate a dollar of the public money. We have no…. authority to appropriate it as a charity. I cannot vote for this bill, but I will give one week’s pay, and if every member of Congress will do the same, it will amount to more than the bill asks.”

Gentlemen,

Col. Peter J Ortriz

I was speaking with my father (who is now in his 80th year) when he told me that he had been asked to give a short talk to a group of young schoolchildren about his experiences in the 1939-1945 war.

Whenever he talks about the war the name of Peter Ortiz is always mentioned with some awe and respect.

In order to find out a little more about him we searched the web and came across your excellent sites.

No arrests 3 months after killing by SWAT

No arrests 3 months after killing by SWAT:

"No arrests have been made in the three months since Jose Guerena was killed by a SWAT team during a raid of his home that officials said was part of a complex drug-trafficking investigation involving numerous people.

Stolen cars, drugs, cash and weapons were found in another one of the four houses raided that May 5 morning, but Sheriff Clarence Dupnik said no one has been arrested because an ongoing homicide investigation tied to this case is 'much bigger.'

'We could go out and make some arrests today, and we could've made some arrests some time ago, but we have two different investigations going on and the homicide is a priority,' Dupnik said. 'And we don't want to turn off the flow of certain information.'

Does the U.S. Constitution Allow for a “Super Congress?”| The Post & Email:

"SHOULD WE?

by Sharon Rondeau

How many Benedict Arnolds are there in Washington, DC? Is it time to call them out?

(Aug. 5, 2011) — The national media is reporting on the planned creation of a new “Super Congress” or “super committee” but is not questioning its constitutionality. The idea of a “new legislative body” emerged from debate on raising the debt ceiling so that the federal government could avoid a default on its debt to other nations.

Most Americans oppose the new “agreement,” and The New York Times is reporting that congressional disapproval is now at a “record 82%.”

The U.S. Congress has allowed the nation’s debt to climb to more than 100% of its gross domestic product, which has not occurred since World War II. In its report, Fox News made a reference to the Super Congress only as “a joint committee.”

Sen. Mitch McConnell has called the Super Congress a “powerful, joint committee.” An editorial posted on Yahoo! News stated that the proposed group would be “making decisions behind closed doors.”

Where in the U.S. Constitution is a Super Congress permitted?

Obama’s ineligibility: Prepare to defend America – As the scam unravels



"Obama’s contempt for us knows no bounds. His plan to suppress us is no longer constrained by the Constitution and the rule of law. Or so he hopes.

Although Obama is trying to empty Guant�namo Bay of real terrorists, it is still too small for Obama to house the millions of Americans who now realize that he is an illegal President and has committed felonies both before and after occupying the White House.

To facilitate the suppression of free speech and other Constitutional rights, the Obama White House has unveiled a new domestic terror strategy, which will be useful against Tea Party malcontents and supporters of Sarah Palin or Michele Bachmann.".....................

A Response To The Transparent Assault Against Ken O’Keefe | Veterans Today:

"Ken is going to survive this bit of nonsense precisely because the people who truly know him will stick with him and those who have or had ulterior motives will drift away.


I am not going to claim full knowledge of all the events behind this issue. As a veteran of many political endeavors, movements and radical groups both above and below ground, however, I will comment on the realities of such smear campaigns.

First, and most important in my mind, is that Ken has certainly proven himself as the “genuine” article through all the work he has thus far accomplished with regard to Palestine and for the beautiful Palestinian people. Anyone who questions this does so with intentionally closed eyes and ears."

"Police from three jurisdictions – West Allis, Milwaukee and Wisconsin State Fair police – spent Friday morning piecing together a series of incidents late Thursday night at the Wisconsin State Fair in which large groups of youths rampaged through the Midway and outside the grounds after closing.

Officials could not say what started what witnesses said was a series of racially charged incidents that apparently began as early as 7 p.m. in the Midway. The Midway is located just east of the Pettit National Ice Center and adjacent to the Hank Aaron Bike Trail.

Milwaukee police confirmed there were assaults outside the fair as the fair was closing down. The fair closes at 11 p.m.

Witnesses told WTMJ-AM (Radio 620) that dozens to hundreds of young blacks were beating white people as they left the fair late Thursday night. Patrice Harris, a Fair spokeswoman, said a police alert she was given indicated four people were hurt.

"Lee Bollinger is an attorney turned academic. Past president of the University of Michigan, Bollinger now holds that position at Columbia University, home of the famed Columbia School of Journalism.

Bollinger believes that coming J school graduates will provide a more valuable service if the American media becomes the de facto property of the federal government.

“…I propose…an American World Service…”, writes Bollinger. “A media institution with sufficient funding to bring the highest quality American journalism to the global forum.” And that “sufficient funding” will be provided by the federal government. From taxpayers.

Why is government funding necessary? Because “…the proliferation of communications outlets has fractured the base of advertising and readers.” And as a result, “newsrooms have shrunk and foreign bureaus have been decimated,” says Bollinger.".................................

Prison Planet.com � The Mysterious Death of Osama bin Laden: Creating Evidence Where There Is None:

"The New Yorker has published a story planted on Nicholas Schmidle by unidentified sources who claim to be familiar with the alleged operation that murdered Osama bin Laden.

There is no useful information in the story. Its purpose seems simply to explain away or cover up holes in the original story, principally why did the Seals murder an unarmed, unresisting Osama bin Laden whose capture would have resulted in a goldmine of terrorist information and whose show trial would have rescued the government’s crumbling 9/11 story?

The gullible Schmidle tells us: “‘There was never any question of detaining or capturing him–it wasn’t a split-second decision. No one wanted detainees,’ the special-operations officer told me.” In other words, the SEALs murdered bin Laden, because the US government did not want detainees, not because trigger-happy stupid SEALs destroyed a font of terrorist information."

Obama’s contempt for us knows no bounds. His plan to suppress us is no longer constrained by the Constitution and the rule of law. Or so he hopes.

*snip*

To facilitate the suppression of free speech and other Constitutional rights, the Obama White House has unveiled a new domestic terror strategy, which will be useful against Tea Party malcontents and supporters of Sarah Palin or Michele Bachmann.

According to the plan, local communities around the country are best suited to take on the challenge of combating the kind of violent extremism that inspires people to kill or oppose Obama’s policies. The strategy calls on federal agencies to help police, schools and community groups prevent violent extremism or the exercise of former Constitutional rights through the use of gulags and re-education camps.

Confessions of a Car Salesman

Confessions of a Car Salesman:

"What does the car salesman do when he leaves you sitting in a sales office and goes to talk with his boss?

What are the tricks salespeople use to increase their profit and how can consumers protect themselves from overpaying?

These were the questions we, the editors at Edmunds.com, wanted to answer for our readers. But how could they really know that our information was accurate and up-to-date? Finally, we came up with the idea of hiring an investigative reporter to work in the industry and experience, firsthand, the life of a car salesman.

We hired Chandler Phillips, a veteran journalist, to go undercover by working at two new car dealerships in the Los Angeles area. First, he would work at a high-volume, high-pressure dealership selling Japanese cars. Then, he'd change over to a smaller car lot that sold domestic cars at 'no haggle' prices.

We invite you to read the following account of Phillips' day-to-day experience on the car lots. Doing so will broaden your understanding of the dealership sales process. It will also cast a new light on the role of the car salesman. And, finally, it will help you get a better deal — and avoid hidden charges — the next time you go to buy or lease a new car.

Read, learn and enjoy.

Starbucks pulling plug on laptop users?

Starbucks pulling plug on laptop users?:

"Starbucks Gossip provides the following jolt:

If you are one of those people who uses Starbucks as their office, sits in a store for 8 hours a day, putting all your files on a table, using a separate chair for your laptop case/ suitcase enjoying unlimited free refills with your Starbucks card, asking for cups of water and refuse to to move until you are good and ready all for the $1.85 you pay as “rent,” then perhaps your actions will answer your questions [about covering the outlets].

An AJC reporter who shall remain nameless tells me she recently lost her connection after 30 minutes at another local coffee shop, so it looks likes Starbucks is not alone in trying to prevent prolonged PC parking.

Starbucks seems to go out of their way to be friendly, so this is a perilous PR path, if true. After all, we can get coffee and electricity at work, if it comes to that.".............
