The Obama Administration, The Democrat Political Party, And The UN Will Cancel The 2nd Amendment – UPDATED
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg may prefer “No Labels” but in his case, many feel “gun grabber” is a pretty fitting one. As part of his misguided crusade to tighten up gun laws nationally, The New York Times reports that Hizzoner sent undercover cops to gun shows in Arizona and found they were violating the law. Image Credit: weaselzippers.us By: Edmund Jenks - West Coast Editor Do the words LAME Duck mean anything to you? What does international treaty and its application to the laws of a sovereign country mean to the people of said sovereign country? Well, the answers to these two questions and the effect on our freedoms here in the United States may have real and serious consequences to our way of life as the Obama Administration, the Democrat political party, [...]
President Barack Obama has attacked Gov. Mitt Romney's record in the private equity industry as CEO of Bain Capital. But ten years ago, as he struggled to raise funds for his long-shot U.S. Senate campaign, then-State Senator Obama decided to embrace the private equity industry and its wealthy Chicago political donors. At one point, Obama even sponsored a resolution in the Illinois Senate calling calling private equity firms like Bain "the best opportunity for long-term economic vitality" and for "the creation of jobs." Obama's campaign ads dismissively compare Romney's work at Bain to that of a "vampire" draining jobs and money from vulnerable companies and workers. After pushback from a handful of pro-free market Democrats in late May, the President himself publicly defended his [...]
Democratic Party Backed Unions Publish Wisconsin Residents Voting records and personal information to their neighbors
A Wisconsin political advocacy group with ties to the Democratic Party and Big Labor is circulating pamphlets to state residents revealing their neighbors’ names, addresses, and voting histories. The campaign is an apparent attempt to pressure residents in the Madison area, which is overwhelmingly Democratic, to vote in Tuesday’s gubernatorial recall election. The group is called the Greater Wisconsin Political Fund, a sister organization of the Greater Wisconsin Committee. The GWC does not reveal its donors, but a report from the Center for Public Integrity notes that it received a $900,000 contribution from the Democratic Governors Association in May. It also received $500,000 from the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) union. Disclosure [...]
Democratic e-mail “If this hits the media, the Democratic Party, our candidates, and our credibility are doomed in this election,”
A former North Carolina Democratic Party staffer was sexually harassed by a party official, made a financial settlement with the party and signed a non-disclosure agreement to keep the incident quiet, according to emails obtained by The Daily Caller. “If this hits the media, the Democratic Party, our candidates, and our credibility are doomed in this election,” reads one email exchange between state Democratic leaders. (UPDATE: Dem official named in same-sex harassment claim by male staffer) An email chain between those Democratic leaders, obtained by The Daily Caller, indicates the executive director of the North Carolina Democratic Party, Jay Parmley, and the alleged sexual harassment victim both signed non-disclosure agreements. The email chain does not make clear who [...]
Daily Mail reports a major donor to President Barack Obama has been accused of defrauding a businessman and impersonating a bank official, creating new headaches for Obama's re-election campaign as it deals with the questionable history of another top supporter. The New York donor, Abake Assongba, has contributed more than $50,000 to Obama's re-election effort this year, federal records show. But Mrs Assongba is also fending off a civil court case in Florida, where she's accused of thieving more than $650,000 to help build a multimillion-dollar home in the state - a charge her husband denies.

The Lake County Democratic Party in Florida put up a version of Old Glory featuring President Obama’s face in place of the stars this week. Veterans quickly protested the flag, which they called “disrespectful” and “ridiculous.” As FoxNews.com reports: Bradford, an organizer with the Veterans Memorial at Fountain Park in Leesburg, Fla., snapped photos of the flag and distributed them to fellow veterans and friends. By late afternoon, he and several other veterans delivered a copy of the federal flag code to Nancy Hurlbert, chairwoman of the Lake County Democratic Party. "We read that to her, but she would not accept that," Bradford said. "The discussion finally got a little bit heated." The flag, which had been flying for several months without complaint and is [...]
One of the biggest incumbent-vs.-incumbent congressional fights of the year was unfolding in Ohio on Tuesday night, with two veteran Democrats, Reps. Marcy Kaptur and Dennis J. Kucinich, battling in the newly redrawn 9th District. The Kaptur-Kucinich battle for the new district along the state’s northern border was the first and one of the most intriguing of some 13 House contests pitting incumbents against incumbents, thanks to redistricting after the 2010 census. In seven districts, two sitting Democrats will be running against one another, while four primaries will pit Republican incumbents. Two general-election races in Ohio and Iowa will feature a sitting Republican and sitting Democrat running in the same redrawn district. As polls closed at 7:30 p.m., Mr. Kucinichs [...]
Media Matters chief David Brock paid a former domestic partner $850,000 after being threatened with damaging information involving the organization’s donors and the IRS – a deal that Brock later characterized as a blackmail payment, according to legal documents obtained by FoxNews.com. In an acrimonious lawsuit settled at the end of last year, Brock accused William Grey of making repeated threats to expose him to the "scorn or ridicule of his employees, donors and the press in demanding money and property." Brock claimed in legal papers that he sold a Rehoboth Beach, Del., home he once shared with Grey in order to meet Grey’s demands, which he called "blackmail" in the lawsuit. Brock, 49, heads the non-profit Media Matters for America, which bills itself as a watchdog of the [...]
Whoa! I guess there was something to the Walter Dalton speculation after all! North Carolina Gov. Bev Perdue (D) is set to announce today that she will not seek reelection in 2012, according to multiple sources familiar with her plans. Perdue, who turned 65 earlier this month, was set for a rematch of her 2008 race with former Charlotte mayor Pat McCrory (R), but she has been plagued by low approval ratings and faced some tough odds this year. The Washington Post I’m not surprised by this. I just said the other day that she has consistently trailed McCrory in a rematch since about six months after taking office. via Perdue Calls it Quits | Carolina Politics Online.
It’s high time that African Americans break free of the pervasive liberal propaganda that brainwashed them into thinking the party of Abraham Lincoln is anti-black, say several prominent black conservatives. “I was always a conservative because those are the values that I was taught, but I thought I was a Democrat because I was black and I had to be,” said Andre Harper, author of Political Emancipation: Observations of a Black Man Who Rejected Liberal Indoctrination. “I said I would never be a Republican because I bought into the notion that Republicans hated blacks and were the party of slavery.” The black community is inherently conservative, Harper believes. “Hip-hop clearly is the most capitalistic entertainment genre. Nothing about the left says ‘I am going to put [...]
