It’s National Empty Chair Day…. #EmptyChairDay #ClintEastwood #Eastwooding #Obama


I’m sure you have all seen or heard about Clint Eastwood’s speech at the Republican National Convention (RNC) last week.

(Source: NY Daily News)

His schtick of talking to an empty chair (Obama) has sparked a new fad called “Eastwooding”.   Eastwooding is photographing an empty chair.

And impromptu movement then decided that today — September 3, 2012 — would be National Empty Chair Day.  They have asked everyone to put an empty chair on their lawn and add signs/props/etc.  that fit the image of Obama as an empty chair.

I put my chair out today:

Beer Summit for the “Most Invisible Man in the World

And many, many other Americans did the same.  Some great ones:

Let’s get rid of the empty chair on November 6!  Romney/Ryan 2012!

Barack Obama supports this….. #OWS


The Occupy Wall Street (OWS) protests are everything (and worse) that the Tea Party gatherings were ACCUSED of being.

While a unified and coherent message is yet to be found among these lazy Leftists, there are a variety of complaints made by the “Flea Party” against their country, their fellow citizens, and their lives, in general.

And, worst of all, our President, Barack Obama, among others, supports the filthy display of these anti-Capitalist Leftists — from plain ‘ol lazy ones to radical ones — and their 1960’s-like communal camp-outs.

It’s the kind of display that hard-working, proud Americans do not engage in.  They don’t have “weeks” to sit in filth with their topless brethren and bitch about something….anything….especially things they know nothing about.

Barack Obama supports this bunch of anti-capitalist useful idiots along with Marxist Van Jones, Al Gore, Joe Biden, Nancy PelosiJohn Larson, Louise Slaughter, Muslim Keith Ellison, Jeff Merkley, Russ Feingold, and more.

And let’s not even talk about who is financing and organizing this astroturfed conglomeration of idiots.  I’ll list SOME of them because the astroturf financiers and “organizers” are another story unto themselves:

Here is your Democrat-supported (from the President on down) “protest” in action— and just imagine if the Tea Party protesters had ACTUALLY engaged in only 1% of this behavior (which they never did):

USCG warns staff after Occupy Boston protesters spit on Coast Guard officer

Disgusting behavior exhibited by the “Occupy Wall Street” protesters are on full display in New York as trash and debris pile-up on public streets. The disgusting conditions coupled with the group’s anti-authority attitude resulted in one unidentified protester defecating on an NYPD patrol car.

Hackers threaten Wall Street

– According to this speaker in LA, violence and bloodshed will be necessary:

“So, ultimately, the bourgeoisie won’t go without violent means. Revolution! Yes, revolution that is led by the working class.  Long live revolution! Long live socialism!”

– Creepy, funky chants like “I can have sex with animals or whatever“…. (Frankly, I’m ashamed these robots in this video call themselves Americans!)

Millions and millions of tax-payer dollars are being spent to clean up after these animals.

Protestors claim the “Jews” control Wall Street in anti-semetic rant

Protesters march on Wall St. after park cleanup postponed, get into scuffle with  cops

Police Clash With “Occupy Denver” Protesters, Dozens Arrested

 – More creepy Left Wing chanting led by community organizer who travels the globe to provoke violence for destabilizing governments

There is so much more going on daily with these Leftists…..but that last bullet point should unnerve the majority America-loving citizens of this country.

Ed Morrissey at HotAir.com summed up the hypocritical media and politicians on the issue of the Flea Party vs. the Tea Party:

Had even one Tea Party rally resulted in 140 arrests, defecation on police cars, speakers calling for a violent French Revolution-style change in society, or members of the military getting attacked with spit and epithets, would the national media have offered such a balanced report — or would the media have used any of these incidents to warn America about the latent hate and violence in the movement?

Grow up, Precious Snowflakes #OWS


Bill Whittle takes us down the road of asymptotes, growing up and the roots of the lazy, useful idiots on Wall Street who know not why they “protest”.

GROW UP!

Van Jones threatening Americans with his version of “Arab Spring” in America


From RealClearPolitics, quotes from Van Jones on MSNBC, the media voice of the Obama regime (see video at RCP link):

Van Jones: “We are going to build a progressive counterbalance to the tea party. Eighty percent of Americans agree with everything that you say on this show, but we have no voice. We know that jobs are more important, and this phony, made-up deficit stuff they talk about. We know that people who have done well in America should do well by America and start paying America back in the form of more fair taxes.

“People who benefited from the bailouts and from the tax breaks should start paying America back. They’re doing great.

“Everybody else is suffering. That is 80 percent of the majority. And we’re going to now have a voice. 

Van Jones, as you may recall, stepped down as Obama’s “green” czar when it was found that Jones had advocated that Bush caused 9/11 and that he used derogatory terms for Republicans.

The media would have you believe that Jones just made a couple of mistakes there…..but Van Jones is a self-avowed Marxist whose has Obama as his mentor and partner in “crime”.

Michelle Malkin has much information on Van Jones and his efforts for bringing about redistribution for his buddy Obama.  A list of articles on Jones here. From Malkin:

The Contract for the American Dream is a contract for continued wealth redistribution from taxpayers to Democratic special interests from a failed prophet of green jobs boondogglery. Sound familiar?

Van Jones may have left Washington, but his spirit, alas, is alive and well in his mentor’s nightmare policies.

More importantly, with regards to Van Jones’ latest threat, I want to now quote the last item that was included in Van Jones’ comments on MSNBC:

And you’re going to see an American fall, an American autumn, just like we saw the Arab spring. You can see it right now with these young people on Wall Street. Hold onto your hats. We’re going to have an October offensive to take back the American dream and to rescue America’s middle class.”

This is where he is threatening potential violence and taking to the streets against the American people and business.  One thing that jumped out to me was the phrase “take back the American Dream.”

Recently, I ran across a page on Facebook titled “Restoring the True American Dream“.  It is not the kind of page I thought it was (smaller government, constitutional America, etc).  It is a page for radicals like Van Jones.   It wasn’t until I saw Van Jones comments today that I made the connection between Jones’ phrase and the name of the Facebook page.

The page sounds harmless on the surface and some posts are clearly made by the more moderate among us, who, like me, were probably drawn in by the title of the page.  However if you read through the comments on most posts and scroll down through many of the posts, you will find a plethora of hatred, Marxism, threats of “taking my country back” from the whites, how America is a racist country, it’s time we get our fair share, etc.

I believe that this is not the sentiment of the vast majority of Americans, but there is a flame of hatred in certain communities that are completely aligned with the views of Van Jones’ “American Autumn”.   And those views make it all too real to us when you see them on that FB page.

There is irrational hatred for whites, rich people, the Founding Fathers, George W. Bush, Congress, our country, our history….and some effort by Van Jones and/or Obama to stir up chaos and incite riots may be just the fuel to spark that flame.

Here are a few examples of comments (names omitted) from that FB page. Real people in America that are spouting off beliefs such as these (I didn’t correct language or punctation except for some unacceptable words) :

  • ” is time like Obama said stop complaining , he can’t do it alone with individuals who are bent on his Destruction we must stand together and take it to the Streets , get their attention and let our voice’s be heard and our Presents Felt!!!!”
  • In response to one commenter who denounced socialism:  “I see more & more people getting raped by the system & I am afraid. When the riots come I hope the mobs find you & your house & not mine.”
  • “the truth is Wall Street and Big Business is screwing us with no vaseline and we complain about our rights as we give them authority to take em away. “
  • obama exterminate white people to restore america 🙂 they have always been the problem.”
  • “BUT THATS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THOSE THAT ARE USE TO BEING CONSIDERED 1ST CLASS (MOSTLY WHITE AMERICANS) FEEL THAT THEIR SOCIAL POSITIONING IS IN DANGER OF CHANGING WHEN LOWER CLASS (MINORITY BLACK, LATIN, NATIVE, OR LOW CREDIT SCORE) BEGIN TO STAND UP INSTEAD OF LAYING DOWN UNDER THE MASSA’S WHIP…THEN WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND…THE PRESIDENT IS WELL WITHIN HIS RIGHTS AS THE COMMANDER & CHIEF TO MAKE CHANGES….BUSH DID IT…AND SO DID OTHER HEADS OF THE STATE…THE FOCUS IS SO OBVIOUSLY ON HIS SKIN...FEAR HE MIGHT LIBERATE THE AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY….GUESS WHAT…THE LAW GIVES HIM THAT AUTHORITY…SORRY FOR YA KLANSMEN…TEA PARTY…IT IS HAPPENING…LIKE IT OR NOT
  • On Herman Cain: “This brother has SOLD OUT ! YOU CAN’T BE BRAINWASHED UNLESS YOU ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE ! He don’t even look right……”
  • Again, about Hermain Cain: “Him and Clarence Thomas are both sellouts which is something you’d understand if you were black but you’re white so your opinion is weightless in this discussion. Cain is just another GOP Sambo tap dancing for dollars.”
  • If they would stop trying to make the rich richer the GOVERNMENT wouldn’t have to step in.”
  • TEA PARTY = Hates colored people! It’s very simple to understand. Their policy is stupid. They have agenda pushed by the corporate agenda. The Tea party is a CANCER to this government.”
  • “All I will say to those haters of the Chocolate-skinned, YOU need to grow up. You are not better or more educated than I am (me the black.) You white devils created the racial hatred as part of your household upbringing cultureand if still you can’t give it up, you will face the resentment of nature on you one very day of your messed-up lifeenough is enough with the lynching and imprisonment of my people.”
  • Rise up against the biggest threats which is not terrorism it is the corporation in which are all butt buddies to the republicans. Rise up I tell ya! Rise up!
  • Its amazing how we still have this mentality. Break the black woman by killing the black man in front of her so she believes the black man is weak. After seeing this, any offspring she raises will be broken and a well trained labor machine. This process continues today, the black family unit is broken. Until we fix this problem, things will never change.”
  • “….what seems to be “in your head” is a pile of [poop]. OR should I wipe my a– with your “Holy Bible“?”
  • All of you closeted, teabagging trolls are really just a bunch of ignorant, racist f–king crackers!”

And if you really want to sum up, in a crude dialect, what Obama and Van think of this country, it would be this FB “American Dream” commenter:

  • YOU PEOPLE, are neo-fascist thugs and bigots who apparently have the exclusive use of some type of clairvoyance to conjure up a cadre of dead, hemp-smoking, slave masters whom you so proudly refer to as the “Founding Fathers.” Well, let me hip you to something: My skin is brown and my lineage is long and illustrious. The way that I see it, my “Founding Fathers” have names like Taharqa, Mansa Musa and Sundiata Keita. The reason that America is in the mess that it is in now is because it is filled with ignorant cretins who know nothing and care less about the rest of the world. Earth is a community Lady – The U.S. doesn’t have any special preeminence. “

I encourage to peek at the Facebook page “Restoring the True American Dream”  if only to catch a glimpse of the people who irrationally and blindly support Obama….some who even hint at being proponents of “rising up” and “taking it to the streets”.  You don’t have to “like” the wall on that page in order to read everything.

It is eye-opening.  Makes me wonder if Van Jones started it!

Did Hollywood “genius” Morgan Freeman see the Florida straw poll?

Just wondering…did Morgan Freeman, the Hollywood Whiz Kid*, happen to take a look at the Florida Straw Poll on Saturday?

Herman Cain, a black man, won that straw poll largely from the support of the Tea Party.

Morgan Freeman said on CNN last week that members of the Tea Party are racists willing to do  whatever they can to “get this black man” (Obama) out of the White House.

The only racist I see is Morgan Freeman…..

Herman Cain responds:

“Most of the people that are criticizing the Tea Partiers about having a racist  element, they have never been to a Tea Party………Name calling is something that is going to continue in this because they don’t  know how to stop this movement and this movement is making a big difference in  politics.”

Amen!  Freeman is right about one thing….the Tea Party wants the President out of the White House.

Not because of his race, but rather based on:

So, Mr. Freeman, race is not the issue as proven in Florida….but for some reason it is an issue with you and many like you.

Why don’t you attend a Tea Party (as Herman Cain suggests) before spreading your nastiness?…and then….well….

Get. Over. It.

Elizabeth Warren crystallizes class warfare while trying to refute it


While Obama swims about in class warfare on a daily basis — “tax the rich”, “pay your fair share” — most of us are tired of hearing the same old worn out lines.  Obama is a redistributionist with big government policies.  Obama believes that your income is the government’s money first and you get what they say you can keep.  They also use “the rich” in order to stoke jealousy and class warfare.  If you can soak the rich further on taxes while increasing the numbers of those who don’t pay taxes, a politician is able to increase his votes from those who get handouts from the government.

It’s a carousel ride of political aims, not benevolent ones.

Elizabeth Warren, running for the Massachusetts Senate seat against Scott Brown (R), crystallizes the politicized and communal view of the Left.   She actually engages in class warfare while trying to prove “taxing the rich” meme isn’t class warfare.   Video here.

“I hear all this, you know, ‘Well, this is class warfare, this is whatever. No. There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own — nobody.

“You built a factory out there? Good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police-forces and fire-forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn’t have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory — and hire someone to protect against this — because of the work the rest of us did.

“Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea. God bless — keep a big hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is, you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.”

The words of this woman are breath-taking in their ignorance and anti-capitalist meaning.

  • “You built a factory out there? Good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for.

Aside from the fact that Warren seems to think the roads came first and we are all existing on the backs of some mythical societal infrastructure….The job creators and owners of the factory paid vastly more for those roads than “the rest of us”.  Job creators did not create anything on the backs of others.   As has been proven over and over, “the rich” pay the vast majority of taxes in this country.  Those who built that factory paid more than “the rest”  in order to build those roads.

Roughly 50% of earners pay no income taxes at all.  So who is using the roads that someone else paid for?  I suppose, using Warren’s base example, the truth is that at least half of “the rest of us” are using roads we didn’t pay for.

As another blogger, MarkAmerica, wrote, “Do you understand her claim?  She is saying that society enables people to become rich.  This is a lie.  If society enables people to become rich, why aren’t we all rich?  Why?

Warren’s statement is typical class warfare and grossly ignorant in its content.

  • You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police-forces and fire-forces that the rest of us paid for.

Same issue applies as above.  Half paid nothing.  “The rich” paid heads above the others.  She lies.

Again with Warren’s example….Those workers (and, similarly, first responders), of whom only 50% pay income taxes, are able to pay those taxes only because of the those who built the factory, who now hire those educated by taxes paid by “the rich” and the 50% of “the rest of us”

  • “Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea. God bless — keep a big hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is, you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.”

So business now has a “social contract” that says work hard, pay more than your share of taxes, and then pass along a HUGE hunk of your earnings and success to the GOVERNMENT….for the next kid who comes along?

Why on God’s green earth would I expect that the fruits of my labor, in the hands of this government, would be responsibly passed onto the “next kid”?…..Particularly when that same government has proven $14 Trillion times over that they have no track record of being responsible with my money and have actually put Americans in debt to the tune of $15,000 for EACH family or $90,000 for each worker?

Gee, wouldn’t it work better to have a “individual contract” that says if I work hard, hire competent workers, pay them fairly, pay my share of taxes, and generally succeed in my business….well, then I’ve already contributed to society and have great experience to “pay forward” as advice to the next generation…so they may also succeed.

I guarantee you the values and experience of a free market businessman will not put the next generation in debt, as the government has done, but rather richer!

Perhaps more important in refuting her silly statements is that those who built those businesses have risked their own capital in order to produce those jobs.   What did “the rest of us” do?   We sought the jobs  at those businesses where the entrepreneurs risked their own money.  Oh, and if the business does not succeed, will Warren bail out that business? No.   (ie Obama might if it means campaign cash, but I digress.)

The Elizabeth Warren’s of the liberal world have forgotten that they serve Americans, not the other way around.

They’ve also forgotten that our system wasn’t built so that the government can micromanage the economy and determine winners/losers and what is “fair”.  We are not a commune.  Our strength lies in God-given rights, individual freedom, and the efforts of those individuals.

While Scott Brown has fallen out of some favor with me, I hope Warren and her ignorant anti-capitalist views are defeated in the Massachusetts Senate election.

Nations crumble from within when the citizenry asks of government those things which the citizenry might better provide for itself.

Is “hope and change” / left-wing agenda caving in on its own weight?


(Photo: politifake.org)

As I read through news stories the past several weeks, even just days, it seems there is a common theme to a lot of news and political stories:  the left-wing agenda seems to be crashing down around itself.

Don’t get me wrong….the America apologists, statists, socialists, and global warming maniacs among us will not be raising the white flag any time soon.  But the more they double-down on their agenda, it seems, the more reality is telling a very different story than theirs.

A key indicator that voters are fed up with the antics of the last 2 1/2 years?  How about the GOP defeat in New York City District 9 in Tuesday’s  special election.  The HUGE win by the GOP marks the first time a Republican has held that seat since 1923.

In the largely Jewish district in New York, it is believed that the election was referendum on Obama’s policies on Israel, the building of a mosque at Ground Zero, and local political issues like the handling of the 9-11 anniversary.  Some also believe it was a partial referendum on New York’s same-sex “marriage” law.

When it comes to things like the building of a certain mosque, the 10-year anniversary of the attacks on 9-11 and Israel, “for every action” there has come “an equal yet opposite reaction” and the first responders have again risen from lower Manhattan…….

(on the mosque)…An August CNN/Opinion Research Poll showed 68 percent of all Americans opposed the idea. It is hallowed ground, a sacred wound……As Larry Hart of Examiner.com put it; “There are 3,000 families backed up by millions of New Yorkers backed up by hundreds of millions of Americans that are saying ‘no, you can’t build it here.'”…..Still, in spite of overwhelming public outrage for what is considered a blatantly intentional insult, David Weprin – as did Barack Obama – sided with the imam.

(on 9/11)….Weprin suffered the reflexive voter slap for Democrat Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s salting snub in not inviting New York’s first responders to the official ten-year anniversary ceremony. Still, while it was ultimately the mayor’s decision to exclude the men and women who are still seen by most of us as heroes, the president did not object. Just as American’s will “never forget” the horror of 9-11 they will remember Obama’s silence on this sensitive matter – as well as his support of the mosque – in November 2012.

(on Israel)…Who can forget the day when Barack Obama stood before cameras and the world and advised Israel to reconfigure its border to their 1967 lines in compliance with Palestinian demands?  …Ed Koch feels quite differently. In fact – according to the New York Post – the Jewish former Democrat Mayor and Holocaust survivor endorsed Bob Turner with the express purpose of sending a message to Obama that would clarify the severity of the destruction. …..   Obviously, the majority of those who showed up at the polls on Tuesday got the memo.

More crash and burn?  Take the news today that a Nobel Laureate physicist is resigning his physics society post due to global warming.  No, he doesn’t believe the earth will burn up in two weeks and he just wants to spend those two weeks enjoying himself….but quite the opposite:

Dr. Ivar Giaever, a former professor with Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and  the 1973 winner of the Nobel Prize in physics, abruptly  announced his resignation Tuesday, Sept. 13, from the premier physics society in  disgust over its officially stated policy that “global warming is occurring.”

Giaever was cooled to the statement on warming  theory by a line claiming that “the evidence is incontrovertible.”

“In the APS it is ok to discuss whether the mass of  the proton changes over time and how a multi-universe behaves, but the evidence  of global warming is incontrovertible?” he wrote in an email to Kate Kirby, executive officer of the physics  society.

“The claim … is that the temperature has changed  from ~288.0 to ~288.8 degree Kelvin in about 150 years, which (if true) means to  me is that the temperature has been amazingly stable, and both human health and  happiness have definitely improved in this ‘warming’ period,” his email message said.

Even more to the point and proof that Al Gore’s maniacal rages and Obama’s “green jobs” are not moving the public to their “incontrovertible” positions:

Public perception of climate change has steadily fallen since late 2009. A Rasmussen  Reports public opinion poll from August noted that 57 percent of adults  believe there is significant disagreement within the scientific community on  global warming, up five points from late 2009.

The same study showed that 69 percent of those  polled believe it’s at least somewhat likely that some scientists have falsified  research data in order to support their own theories and beliefs. Just 6 percent  felt confident enough to report that such falsification was “not at all  likely.”

And speaking of “green jobs”….it seems Obama’s BIG effort for green jobs creation has been nothing but an Obama campaign-crony-socialist-stimulus crock of potentially illegal and shady activity!

In February, the administration renegotiated with Solyndra’s billionaire investor- remember the one who was also a big contributor to the Obama campaign?- as the company was failing. That deal allowed billionaire George Kaiser’s foundation to jump ahead of the American taxpayers for all but $150 million of the government’s $527 million loan in any company bankruptcy.

Oh, and it’s a transaction that also happens to be illegal. Although Democrats are floating the idea that the government has the authority to make the taxpayers take a back seat to Kaiser in a bankruptcy, sources close to the investigating committee say that a plain reading of the statute never allows taxpayers to go to the back of the line under any circumstances.

In other words, under the law, the government always has the obligation to protect taxpayer money in any case, including a bankruptcy. It’s a novel concept for this administration, but it happens to be the law.

…….(from Bloomberg) When the Solyndra loan was restructured in February, OMB found in a preliminary analysis that liquidating, rather than renegotiating, would give the U.S. “greater recovery” of its investment, the committee said in the report. The company sought bankruptcy protection six months later.

Why then would the administration allow a billionaire to jump ahead of taxpayers as the company spun into bankruptcy?

Is the leftist agenda caving even further?

Yes. Speaking of bankruptcy and overall poor economic and employment performance….just soak in these headlines/articles for further proof that “Obamanomics” is a HUGE failure.  He needs to go in 2012.

By the Numbers … Obama’s Historic Record of Failure (ie Fannie/Freddie, GM, Cash for Clunkers, US Debt Downgrade, historic debt, historic spending….)

Obama’s current policies seem to resemble an avalanche….a large, ever-increasing wave of corruption, failure, and arrogance rolling us all downhill…..all thanks to ‘ol Mr. Greek Columns and his “hope and change”.

Obama’s loss of support and accompanying critics?…well…it couldn’t happen to a nicer god guy.

Speaking of critics….. do you know what Obama’s response is to his criticsAttackWatch.com.

The Obama campaign is launching a new website to handle misinformation against President Obama,” reports the Hill. “In an email, Obama’s reelection campaign manager, Jim Messina, announced the formation of AttackWatch.com“:

“Forming the first line of defense against a barrage of misinformation won’t be easy,” Messina wrote in a fundraising email to campaign supporters. “Our success will depend on a team of researchers and writers to stay on the lookout for false claims about the President and his record, bring you the facts, and hold our opposition accountable.”

The site features ominous red-white-and-black graphics and a form calledReport an attack.”

What an arrogant and creepy little idea:

The whole thing is both creepily paranoid and bumblingly buffoonish….produced by a chimera of Richard M. Nixon and Wile E. Coyote.

So true….It is serious that we have such a paranoid as President and the failures of his policies is critical. But laughing in the face of trouble is not a bad thing….Check out the thousands of funny Attackwatch jabs and quips on Twitter!  (#AttackWatch)
