Dump Obama Say Democrats

A new poll by CNN and ORC International finds that 27% of Democrats would like to see their party nominate a candidate other than Barack Obama for president in 2012.

The new poll is another indication of Dem Party unhappiness, but it does not mean Obama will face a challenge in his party's primaries.

Whether Democrats take action to unseat Obama is really of no consequence, Obama will not beat the still unknown GOP challenger.

No president since Truman beat Dewey in 1948 has won reelection with a jobless rate exceeding 6%, or an approval rating below 50%.  Obama lags far behind these critical indicators.

Gallup shows Obama falling broadly among the general voting public: Approval 38%, Disapproval 55%. Obama's 78% approval among Muslims seems to show where he has succeeded, however.

Feds Raid Gibson Guitar Co. For Rare Woods Violations

Agents from U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service raided workshops at the Gibson Guitar factory in Memphis and Nashville.

Pallets of exotic wood, guitars, and files rounded up.

Gibson's chairman and CEO, Henry Juszkiewicz, says Holder's DOJ is bullying the company. "The wood the government seized Wednesday is from a Forest Stewardship Council certified supplier," he said.

Musicians who play vintage guitars and other instruments made of environmentally protected materials are worried the authorities may be coming for them next...

"Surprisingly (not), musicians, who represent some of the most savvy, ecologically minded people around, are resistant to anything about changing the tone of their guitars," Dick Boak, director of artist relations for C.F. Martin & Co. noted.

Hypocrisy—artsy Global Warming Cultists only too eager to tell others what kind of light bulbs they have to buy won't make sacrifices when it comes to their own passions.  Arrest them all, especially Bono.

Warning: Libya "dirty bomb" Materials Loose

The gorilla in the room is what Gaddafi has in WMD.  And Gaddafi himself has less and less to lose should he decide to go out with a 'bang'. 

Libya's Gaddafi agreed in 2003 to abandon efforts to acquire nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, he lied. 

Libya's Tajoura research center continues to stock large quantities of radioisotopes, radioactive waste and low-enriched uranium fuel can be either sold to, or stolen and used to make 'dirty bombs'.

Gadhafi has extensive stockpiles of mustard gas, high explosives, Russian missiles, and yellow cake at his disposal.

The looting of Tripoli is underway today, the rebels have already drafted a rough constitution in which they made a point to say "sharia law" will be central.

GM Pays Record Bonuses Despite Owing Taxpayers Billions

General Motors Co. will pay more than $189 million to 48,000 U.S. hourly workers and millions more in performance bonuses to salaried employees despite the debt owed taxpayers.

GM still owes the US Taxpayers $27 Billion, this money can only be paid back upon sale of shares in the company, post IPO.  As of August 19 market close, GM shares are far below the IPO price now at $22.16.  The sale of taxpayer shares in GM is occurring at a loss.

Chrysler also owed $12 Billion - now forgiven entirely by the Fed and never paid back.

"Since the taxpayers helped these companies out of bankruptcy, the taxpayers should be repaid before bonuses go out," Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, said in a statement. "It sends a message that those in charge take shareholders, in this case the taxpayers, for a sucker."

Outrage?  The GM fiasco stands as a monument among monuments to the waste, fraud, abuse, and hand-feeding of Obama's crony unions.

Side note:  The money given to both auto companies is interest free.

GM says bankruptcy excuses it from repairs...

Union Thug Shoots Company Owner

King Electrical Services owner John King was shot by a suspect from one of the unions who have targeted his workers.

King has put up with union-related violence for a long time, now its attempted murder. The gunman etched the word “SCAB” into the side of King’s SUV.

“Since he’s been in business, in addition to the legal battles and verbal abuse, King’s company has been vandalized...numerous occasions,” notes local authorities.

The Wisconsin union fiasco has ended with unions losing their quest to unseat the GOP majority, and to stop the rational cutback in their extortion practices.  Obama has also propped up the unions, the entire GM taxpayer losses are directly tied to graft by the UAW.  Unions are a large part of the problem, and until they are  either controlled, cut-back, or eliminated, the US will not be competitive, and businesses owners like John King will be harassed, run out of business, or even murdered.

Obama To Perry: "...Careful About What You Say"

Wolf Blitzer says: "Rick Perry, the governor of Texas, Republican presidential candidate now, says, the men and women of the United States military want someone who's worn the uniform. He says he served in the Air Force."

Obama says: "You know, Mr. Perry just got into the presidential race. I think that everybody who runs for president ... got to be a little more careful about what you say.  But I'll cut him some slack. He's only been at it for a few days now."

Rick Perry is right, the military would want someone who has served in the Air Force as a veteran pilot to command them, over say, a community activist, and instigator of the illegal war in Libya.

What is Obama's problem?  Oh yea, he will be defeated by Perry in 2012.

Obama's Pet Green Company Goes Bankrupt

Obama wanted to make "green tech" one of his pillars...that palace is crumbling.  The foundation of Obama's tenure is falling apart, Obamacare declared unconstitution by the 11th Circuit - appears headed toward a Supreme Court showdown before the election, and now Evergreen Solar.

Evergreen Solar Inc., the Marlboro, MA solar company that received millions in state subsidies and more millions in Obama stimulus to build an ill-fated Bay State factory, has filed for bankruptcy.  The company once promised 800 jobs, and a stream of products.  Obama visited the factory several times, using them as a back drop.  Like Obama's entire presidency, bankruptcy seems poetically appropriate.

Obama ill-fated taxpayer sink-hole the GM Volt is another failed effort.  GM sold just 114 Volts in July.  GM still owes taxpayers $30 billion.  Gallup polling Obama at 39% approval is not an anomaly.

Extreme Heat Wave To Hit East Coast in Late August

The company, EarthRisk Technologies, has been working in conjunction with the Scripps Institute of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego to develop the most advanced weather prediction software yet.

The model calls for a extreme heat and steamy end to August for US East Coast residents.

“Our ability to extend the forecast beyond two weeks is an ability meteorologists and energy analysts alike have long been waiting for,” said a spokesman for EarthRisk.

Powered with this data, the platform accurately forecast more than 80 percent of the severe cold fronts -- at least 15 to 20 days in advance -- that formed in the Midwest and Eastern U.S. between November 1, 2010 and March 31, 2011, according to Reuters.

If they are correct. the region will end the summer in record temperatures - pushing energy costs thru the roof.

Obamacare Ruled Unconstitutional At US 11th Circuit

The U.S. Appeals Court for the 11th Circuit, based in Atlanta, ruled 2 to 1 that Congress exceeded its authority by requiring Americans to buy coverage as mandated by Obamacare.

The legality of the individual mandate, a cornerstone of the Obama administrations healthcare law, is widely expected to be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court. Opponents have argued that without the mandate, which goes into effect in 2014, the entire law falls.

The US Supreme Court is expected to take it up during its term that begins in October with a ruling possible just months before the November 2012 presidential election.

The irony of these decisions, and no doubt the US Supreme Court will find 5-4 to derail the law, is how the Obama/Holder DOJ is using the courts to block border states from protecting themselves from the US government's failure to deal with criminals and illegals pouring over the Mexico/US border.

Illinois Too Broke To Bury Dead Poor

Illinois has reached a new level of broke - no cash to bury its indigent dead.

In the past, the state has reserved about $13 million to help pay for an estimated 12,000 funerals for individuals who relied on public aid.ral directors have been told no state money so look elsewhere, charity, or local government.

Lesson?  Do not die in Illinois with no money in your pocket.

"Now the only viable option --- I don't mean to make light of it -- is to leave the body at the medical examiner office and after 60 to 90 days they'll take the body to what's called a potter's field and bury it in a numbered grave." one funeral director commented.

Obama's home state has a junk bond rating, as does the other large blue state - California.  Run by Demorats, these states are poster children for how badly things are getting under Demorat rule.

Medicaide Breast Cancer Male Denied Treatment

A 26-year-old South Carolina tile-layer has breast cancer - tough: He is a man. While breast cancer affects 2,000 American males annually, Medicaid does not cover treatment of the disease in men.

The government provides free healthcare to indigents, and the poor?  Wait, why are we doing Obamacare then?  And why is there gender discrimination built-in?

Though getting breast-cancer is clearly life-threatening, especially if not treated quickly, being denied treatment due to gender is ludicrous of course.

Did you know that the IRS denies gays joined by civil unions joint status filing?  Wait, isn't the Obama administration the grand champion of throwing protective blankets over the "rights" of the downtrodden, the gays, and other fringe elements of US society?  What gives?

Turns out, its about power, not equality.  The Obama regime goes after masses of voters, they are not correcting societal ills, they are protecting their jobs.

The latest outrage is Obama passing National Security secrets to a Hollywood filmmaker cooking up a fiction on the Usama Bin Laden head shot.  The film would be released 30 days before the election in 2012 for maximum effect.  Like Clinton's Wag The Dog, now we are faced with Obama's Wag The Usama.

Rasumussen: Mood In USA Is “Pre-Revolutionary”

A new Rasmussen poll from first week in August shows that just 17% of Americans believe that the U.S. government has the consent of the governed, an all time low.  More colonialists were satisfied with King George than people today are with the US government.

Americans’ lack of confidence in their leadership is so crippled that they are now “pre-revolutionary,” says pollster Pat Caddell.  Caddell’s prediction that Americans are near rising up cannot be easily dismissed as partisan rhetoric.  Caddell worked for Democratic presidential candidates, including Jimmy Carter and Joe Biden.

U.S. troops returning from Iraq are being re-allocated to occupy America, under the auspices of a Northcom program that will deploy 20,000 active duty troops inside the US; a plan of Janet Napolitano's.

Lets hope and pray the election comes in time, and retains the confidence of the majority of the population - before the polarization Obama has sown blossoms into a much more dangerous unrest.

Obama Scapegoat Tactic: 'Tea Party Downgrade'

The Democrat spin is to shift Obama's downgrade and cast it onto the Tea Party?  Obama has turned from blame to scapegoating - like Hitler and the Jews.

Obama’s storm troopers David Axelrod and Sen. John Kerry both used the phrase on Sunday talk shows.

Also enlisted are the left-wing media SS like Moveon.org who have ramped up an over-nite campaign to repeat the lie.

The S&P Report, inconveniently, doesn't mention the Tea Party...but it does describe the mismanaged economy, out of control spending, insincere negotiations, and piled up debt that has Obama's fingerprints all over it.

S&P managing director, John Chambers, tells ABC's "This Week" there is a 1 in 3 chance that the U.S. credit rating could be downgraded another notch.

Well, how will the hobbits spin the next downgrade? Lets guess - the 'Tea Party Double Downgrade'?

People pay attention - Obama is scapegoating the issue and not changing course.  Obama is proving he will spend the US into utter oblivion - not even a historic downgrade will dissuade him.

Obama's Record 46 Million People On Food Stamps

Obama has achieved a record number of grim firsts. Debt Downgrade, Poverty, Vet Jobless, Wage Losses, Foreclosures, Bank Failures, Single Day Military Loss, Misery Index, and Soup Lines.

With a record 25% of all kids in the USA in poverty, and a record level of misery among these kids, starvation is one of the gorillas in the room.

Food inflation is now starting to take center stage, while this affects those who are able to buy food, consider the 46 plus million and growing on real government cheese...

U.S. Fish & Wildlife Threatens Child Samaritan

Eleven-year-old Skylar Capo rescued a baby woodpecker in her Dad's backyard that was about to be eaten by the family cat.

Driving home with her mom later in the day, they stopped at a nearby Lowe's - protecting the bird from the heat of the car, they brought the tiny bird inside the store.

Once inside, the pair encountered another shopper from U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.  "She was really nervous. She was shaking. Then she pulled out a badge," said Capo. The woman began to lecture the pair on the Migratory Bird Laws.

Shaken a bit, after returning home, the little girl released the bird, and hoped for the best.  Two weeks later, the women from U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service showed up at Capo's front door. She was accompanied by a Virginia state trooper.

Outraged, Capo refused to accept a citation, but was later mailed a notice to appear in U.S. District Court for unlawfully taking a migratory bird.  Capo was slapped with a $535 fine.

After making the incident public, the Feds backed off, and issued a public retraction of the citation and jail threat.

One more citizen threatened under Il Regime Di Obama.  No one is safe, no good deed goes unpunished.

Black Student Sues High School Over 'Wigger Day'

A black student is suing her former Minnesota high school for celebrating "Wednesday Wigger Day," where white students pretended to be black during homecoming week.

The slang word "wigger" is commonly used to refer to a white person who copies the mannerisms, language and fashions commonly associated with American black culture.

"It's offensive to black folks and, frankly, it's offensive to anyone," said Joshua Williams, Pruitt's lawyer.  Pruitt claims Wigger Day, also known as "Wangsta Day," was held between 2007 and 2009 and is claiming $75,000 in damages.

Was held?  Wait a minute, she is out of high school, the school no longer has the holiday, suddenly now she feels the pain, suffers the depression?  Lets get real...this is why tort reform is necessary, if she wants to sue over this issue, she should have to pay if she loses, and she will lose.  

Remember the black farmer payouts? Somehow, black farmers from a century ago were harmed, so the USDA is paying millions to make it up to them?  90% of those that applied for the 'reparation' were not farmers, their ancestors were not farmers, they were no where near a farm...yet they are getting paid?

Kitten 'Kitler' Born With Hitler Mustache Abandoned

Kitler, a six-week old kitten in England, remains unwanted at the Wood Green Animal Shelter for having a black fur patch under her nose that resembles Adolf Hitler’s gravy-catching mustache.

Staffers at the shelter claim Kitler’s eerie appearance has turned off potential owners from adopting.

“Kitler is an adorable little girl who will make a wonderful addition to the right family,” spokeswoman Tara Dundon told The Telegraph. “She is really playful and a typical sweet kitty-cat."

Kitler was discovered near death on the side of a road near Kempston, Bedfordshire, late last month.

Maybe dropping the nickname Kitler - the cat may have better luck?  How about some catrolysis?  Or maybe offer the cat with a dog that looks like Eva Braun?

U.S. Manufacturing Plunges To Two Year Low

Institute for Supply Management (ISM) index of manufacturing fell to 50.9% in July from 55.3% in June. The reading is the lowest since July 2009.  And a fraction above contraction level of 50%.

This report points to continued dismal economic growth extending into the July-September quarter, and blunts the idea that the economy would improve this year.

"The ISM manufacturing report for July is a shocker and strongly suggests that the disappointing performance of the economy in the first half of the year was not just temporary," said Paul Dales, senior U.S. economist.

The economy expanded at a dismal 1.3% annual rate in the April-June period after an even worse 0.4% increase in the first three months of the year.  The jobless rate rose to 9.2% again.

The Debt Deal is a standoff.  It just beats the default deadline, the House passing it by a wide margin today, but the effect is a neutral debt ceiling hike - $2.1 Trillion in new debt and offset spending cuts. 

The upcoming 2012 election is a clear demarcation for the economy, and the ultimate survival of the nation.  Obama and the Democrats have proven they are willing to spend to the last man standing with current year deficit a record $1.7 Trillion. The GOP is unable to fully implement country saving spending cuts, and balance budgets with only one-third of the government under their control.
