Governor Palin Appears on Freedom Watch with Judge Napolitano (Video)

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin appeared earlier tonight with Judge Napolitano on the FOX Business Channel on Freedom Watch.

Now Romney is Pimping Himself Out - Win a Day Campaigning with Mitt

It will cost you only $5.00 $3.00 to win a dinner with President Obama via his campaign website...or you can enter for free HERE.

Now, GOP presidential candidate Willard "Mitt" Romney is having a similar "contest." If you donate $5.00 to Mitt's campaign, you can win a chance to spend a day campaigning with him.

Somebody please, help me contain my excitement.

Is Governor Rick Perry Wearing a Mexican Flag?

There's no doubt that Texas Governor and Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry has been attempting to rehab his image this week following his lackluster performance in the most recent FOX News/Google debate and subsequent drop in the polls.  Governor Perry bombed (in the eyes of many Conservatives) when he said the following:

"Every day I have Texans on that border that are doing their job (of securing the border) but, if you say that we should not educate children who have come into our state for no other reason than they've been brought there, by no fault of their own, I don't think you have a heart."

If you want to watch video of that debate question for yourself, go HERE.

Yesterday, Governor Perry uploaded a video to his YouTube channel that was probably intended to assist in said rehab as was this apology. However, Perry may have just created more trouble for himself.

According to his new YouTube video (below picture) Governor Perry doesn't golf, does shoot guns, jogs and plays with his dogs in his downtime.  Just one problem...what's on the back of your shirt, Governor?

Screen Left: Mexican flag -- Screen Right: Screen shot of Governor Rick Perry in what appears to be a Mexican flag t-shirt.

Here's the video from which I took the above screen shot of Governor Perry in his Mexican flag t-shirt. The t-shirt appears at about the 1:22 mark in the video below.

(H/T to HispanicPatriot on YouTube for noticing the Mexican flag that Perry is wearing in the video.)

Downgraded USA Guarantees SBA Loans for Downgraded Banks

The saying "something's rotten in Denmark" comes to mind...

Earlier today a video was uploaded to the YouTube White House channel that shows Vice President Joe Biden announcing $20 billion in additional small business lending.

Here is that video (note the list of financial institutions that Biden begins to list at about 1:15 into this video):

Now, from Reuter's:

"Moody's downgrades big banks on changed policy"

Wells Fargo's holding company senior debt was lowered only one notch to "A2" from "A1." Citigroup's short-term rating for the holding company was changed to "Prime-2," which Moody's noted is typical for companies with the same long-term rating as Citigroup.

The holding company's short-term rating had been exceptionally high because those creditors benefited the most from government support during the financial crisis, Moody's said.

Moody's changed only the short-term rating of the Citigroup holding company and left in place its ratings on the holding company's long-term debt, as well its short- and long-term ratings on the main Citibank subsidiary.

Moody's said the long-term outlook on the three banks' ratings remains negative.

Wells Fargo responded with a statement noting Moody's actions on some of its obligations reflected a change in the agency's view of government support, as opposed to a new opinion of the bank itself.

Bank of America said through a spokesman that the downgrade was due to forces beyond its control and asserted it has a healthy liquidity cushion of $400 billion. All of its planned borrowing needs have been prefunded for the rest of 2011, the spokesman said.

Citigroup said in a statement that Moody's downgrade affects less than 1 percent of its funding. The decision will not affect its funding needs, it said.

You can read the remainder of the above article from Reuter's HERE.

Citigroup and Wells Fargo were both mentioned by Biden. Is it just me or does it not seem like a good idea to back what could be be "bad money" with what could be more "bad money?" The U.S. has been downgraded and now they're (we're) backing up the loans made by 2 banks that have been downgraded and the only entity in this 3-way mixture (bank=debtee - govt=backer - small business=debtor) that hasn't been downgraded is the small business/person that is seeking a loan. Doesn't make sense to me, but, I'm far from a financial guru. Feel free to correct me in the comments below.

Governor Sarah Palin: "Mark my word, it is going to be an unconventional type of election process."

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin appeared with Sean Hannity on FOX News last night.

"I do think, Sean, this is going to be such an unconventional election cycle. Because this has been such an unconventional administration that we are fighting so hard and so committed to replacing. It's not just the administration but it's the Senate, those who have followed like sheep behind President Obama and allowed him to do what he has done in terms of harm to our economy. We are committed to increasing the number of fiscal conservatives in the House of Representatives also. It is a big agenda out there for those of us who are so extremely concerned about the future of our country and whether we are candidates or whether we are supportive of the right candidacies, we're going to be working so hard in these next 14 months. But, a lot is going to happen in these next 14 months. Mark my word, it is going to be an unconventional type of election process."

Feds Offer $10,000 Reward for Info in Michigan Car Bombing

Federal investigators are offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to a conviction in a car bombing in Monroe, Michigan Tuesday evening that injured 3 people. A Monroe attorney and his two sons, 11 & 13-years-old, were driving down a Monroe city street in their SUV when the car bomb exploded.

"This was not an intent to injure; this was an intent to kill," said a family friend who declined to be identified. "Everybody's going to make it, but there's a lot of heartache ahead. I'm still in shock."

Mr. Chappell was released from the hospital before 11 a.m.
The ATF agency is offering a reward up to $10,000 for information relating to the arrest and conviction of the offender(s) responsible for this incident.
Individuals that have information are being asked to notify the ATF via the following telephone numbers:
1-800-ATFBOMB or 1-313-202-3400
Several attorneys and members of the legal community who know Mr. Chappell said this morning they were told by federal agents to not discuss the case with media.
The explosive device detonated as the three were driving, apparently on their way to football practice, around 5:40 p.m. on E. Elm near I-75. Monroe police would acknowledge only that the three occupants were in serious condition. Mr. Chappell is a football coach in the area's Catholic Youth Organization.
The Detroit Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms is investigating the case and released no information this morning.
Sources, however, said Mr. Chappell had been receiving threats. He is a divorce attorney also involved with several high-profile Monroe County cases, including hot dog stand owners who sued the city in 2009 after they were banned from operating their carts.
It has not been determined if a suspect in the bombing has been developed, but police sources said there are so-called persons of interest.
It is believed the device was placed underneath the passenger side of the Chappell car. One of the boys was sitting in the passenger seat and suffered serious lower extremity injuries, especially to his legs.
The bomb may have contained shrapnel, because all three victims suffered wounds from flying debris, officials said.
There were no witnesses in the vicinity where the bomb exploded. It was believed that Mr. Chappell was able to drag his sons from the car, which quickly became engulfed in flames. The shell of the car is being stored at a secure area.
Monroe Police Chief Tom Moore said the case is in its early stages and ATF officials are the lead investigators.

Authorities zero in on Monroe car bomb suspect
The investigation appears to be focusing on the type of device used and why Mr. Chappell was targeted. He has an office in Sylvania, Ohio, and shares another office in Monroe, and has a wide range of clientele.
Because the bomb was so destructive, piecing it together to see if it was detonated by a timer or perhaps a cell phone has been difficult, investigators said. The bomb was filled with shrapnel.
Mr. Chappell, 42, suffered the least severe injuries and was able to pull his sons from the burning wreckage. He is believed to have placed a 911 call asking dispatchers to hurry because his boys were bleeding.

Here is that 911 call (with an unfeeling, out-of-touch dispatcher that may not have his job for much longer).

Glenn Beck Supports Sarah Palin (Re: Brian Sack)

This past Monday, September 12, 2011, Glenn Beck launched his new "internet network" called GBTV. Glenn is joined on his new, 5-day-a-week, 2-hour "TV show" (on the internet) by several personalities. One of those personalities is Brian Sack. Brian is currently doing a comedy bit at the end of every new "Glenn Beck Show" on GBTV. I KNEW that Sack would eventually say something that would make some conservatives react in the EXACT way in which some now are. And, he has. Already. 5 days in.

If you're not familiar with Brian Sack, he's been doing comedy bits on Glenn Beck's Insider Extreme (now known as GBTV) for about 2 years or so. He also used to occasionally join Glenn on his TV show on CNN Headline News.

The remarks that Sack makes about Governor Sarah Palin in the video below are the subject of this "controversy." (I'll post the entire Brian Sack comedy segment at the end of this post.) Glenn's intent, by including comedy as a part of his new venture on GBTV, is to steal-away some of the Stewart/Colbert crowd from Comedy Central, in which, Brian Sack will play an integral role. (I also think that Steven Crowder may join Beck...but, I have zero proof of this. It's just a hunch.) :)

Watch the video:

The best line from the last Republican debate was from Herman Cain. Each candidate was asked what they would bring to the White House. Herman said: "A sense of humor, because America is too uptight." Amen, Mr. Cain.

Here's a few comments under the above video as it was posted by Breitbart HERE. These two comments actually focus on Andrew Breitbart, not Glenn.
I'm pretty disappointed in Breitbart, ever since the falling out with Beck they've been "subtly" sniping at him..Can't you guys forgive and move on, you're both on the same side and this is NOT good for our team to have you sniping at each other. Glenn has never disparaged Breitbart, at least not publicly and AB should not do so either. I love you both and I do NOT want to choose which one of you that I will stick with so get your problems behind you and quit being petty for gosh sakes, we NEED you to work towards the same goals. Please have it out once and for all or just freakin' apologize and put the testosterone behind you...sheesh, MEN.

Comment posted on Breitbart by: "Mrs. Tank"

(For my RWKT Facebook friends, for the record, "Mrs. Tank" is NOT me.)

Well this is just pathetic now. I'm talking about Breitbart. Breitbart has an agenda. He should instead report whatever is true. But ever since Breitbart's little spat with Beck, he has not reported on any of Glenn's successes: especially 8/24. And now this? Are ppl not allowed to say anything about Palin? God forbid. This is sad Breitbart. Breitbart is just jealous of Beck's success. You guys can stay on the petty side of Breitbart... I'll stick with Beck for news.

Comment posted on Breitbart by: "robstermonster"

I became aware of this "scandal" via a post made by "Mark America" in a Sarah Palin Facebook group. Mark had written about the comedy segment in his blog:
I am deeply disappointed in this, and while the credit card subscription is still freshly minted, I am now demanding a refund. The lesson is simple to those who wish to succeed in new media: You can’t simply dump on the people who have supported you and expect there to be no blow-back.

Beck will likely offer that he didn’t know what Brian Sack would say, but during the un-funny comic’s routine, he employed a graphic depicting the Palin family with a whole new member in answer to McGinniss’ smear-filled book. It wasn’t funny, and many in the audience weren’t amused either. If you must, you can watch a clip from the show on the GodandCountryFirst blog, but I won’t be re-posting it here.

This is your ground-breaking network, Mr. Beck? I’ve tuned in either live, or in replayed on demand, and this was shocking to me. It’s not that I don’t expect your show to be fun, but Brian Sack channeling SNL’s weekend update while heaping smears on the Palin family isn’t exactly that for which I subscribed. I am certain there are others who feel the same, and I think you can reasonably expect them to say something about it. This was crass, inaccurate, vulgar, and worst of all, a move in collaboration with the popular culture you said you’re trying to defeat or transform with your new network.

Go HERE to read the rest of the above post by "Mark America."

Here are a few of the comments underneath Mark's posts on Facebook (I will not identify these commenters by name, as these comments are posted under their real names):
Wasn't it Brietbart in the "Undefeated" that called men on our side eunichs for not defending Sarah. I'm not one. I'm angrier about this clip by Brian than I've been about anything in a while. Mark, you aren't one either...
Beck has never really been a friend to Sarah. Don't watch him. Make it hurt where he lives. Goddamn phony crybaby.
I learned a lot from Glenn Beck. He helped change my focus and perceptions. I will always respect him for that. When he left FoxNews I seldom listened to his radio program and I was contemplating a subscription to GBTV. Not any more. I am very saddened by this. Very.
Beck is supporting Rick Perry, even did an intervew with the dirt-bags at Red State Quit giving him the benefit of the doubt. He knew EXACTLY what he was doing.

If this is the type of "support" that Sarah Palin is going to have to expect out of her so-called "supporters," she's not going to be President. People that get THIS put-off by a 1-minute comedy segment on a new internet show aren't poised to provide the type of intelligent and coherent support that Governor Palin is going to need once she enters the race. I believe those that are this thin-skinned simply don't have it in themselves to be of any help to the Governor. I don't see how they possibly could be helpful while whining about such trivialities. That being said, I KNOW that "Mark America" IS a very PRO-Palin blogger and he's a contributor at Conservatives4Palin. I'm actually quite taken aback by his stance on something that is this inconsequential in the grand scheme of things. I must say that I'm also a little discouraged by the comments of the other Palin supporters that found it necessary to complain right along with him about something so trivial. Perhaps Michele Bachmann's "titanium spine" will be available for loan in the not-too-distant future? Buck-up, little campers. It's going to be a long road.

I understand that comedy can be cruel. I understand that I'm not going to like every single thing that every single comedian says. In fact, there are very FEW comedians that I can stomach any longer because of their disgusting liberal politics. I also understand that ultra-sensitive people can't handle some things that are said by matter what their political slant. The conservatives that are freaking out and "going off on" Beck over these few lines by Brian Sack is, I think, quite childish. I also think it is hardly fitting behavior for, what should be by now, hardened Palin supporters. I mean, how are you folks going to handle the campaign once Sarah gets in the race?

The bit was one of the MILDEST I've seen where Sarah and her family are concerned. Good grief people, lighten up. How will you ever survive once Sarah is IN the White House? Do you think the attacks on her will DECREASE? Ha! - if you do.

Granted, the media and everyone else who has an agenda, and those on the left who fear Governor Palin, have attacked her in every way possible. It doesn't seem like there's much left for them to do to her. But, they will not stop. Their attacks will be just as vitriolic, if not more so, as they have been over the past few years. Sarah Palin resides in their heads "rent free" (h/t Rush Limbaugh) and she isn't moving out anytime soon.

My skin has toughened over the years that Sarah has been in the national news. Hell, it was Glenn Beck that introduced me to Sarah Palin long before John McCain had ever heard her name. I've been a supporter of Sarah's ever since THEN because I liked what I heard. A ballsy, anti-corruption, no-nonsense, not-a-friend-of-the-good-ol'-boys, can't-be-bought, female Governor? Hell, yes! I LOVE her!

I've only watched 2 of the new Glenn Beck Shows so far (been busy this week) and have yet to see the entire episode in which this comedy segment aired (but I will). I've only seen the clip-in-question that I posted above (and the full comedy segment I've posted at the end of this post). However, I've already wondered if there will come a time in the not too distant future where I may NOT be watching the last few minutes of the show because Brian Sack is sometimes NOT funny. Sometimes he is. Sometimes I'm in the mood for Brian Sack. Sometimes I'm not. Sometimes I'll have the time. Sometimes I won't. I kinda figure it'll take Brian some time to meld with his audience, too.

Even IF I do stop watching the comedy segments because I may eventually find Brian Sack unappealing, I wouldn't dream of cancelling GBTV. I've been a subscriber (to Insider Extreme) for about 3 yrs (or more). What I get out of GBTV (Insider Extreme) is worth MORE to me than a few bad/dumb/stupid/below-the-belt/unfunny jokes by Brian Sack and whoever else may happen to join the comedy team.

I've been a listener of Glenn's since his radio show went national shortly after 9/11/01. In that time, I may have missed a total of 10-15 shows (in 10 years). When I listen, I actually hear what he says. Over the years I've come across MANY people who call themselves "listeners" of Beck's but, I swear to God, they don't listen...they merely tune-in to the show.

Some of the comments underneath different news stories, blogs and facebook posts about this "controversy" where commenters have stated that Glenn Beck is NOT a supporter of Palin's. I'm here to tell those of you that believe that: your claims are ludicrous.

Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin are most definitely "friendly." Glenn has spoken a few times about different instances where the two of them have emailed each other back and forth about differing subjects. Sarah Palin also stood with Glenn at Restoring Honor on 8/28 (2010) at the National Mall. A few days after that event, Sarah Palin was a guest of Glenn's onstage at one of his shows in Anchorage, AK 9/11 (2010). In fact, this coming October 7th both Sarah and Glenn are scheduled to appear at an event in St. Louis.

Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck are coming to town for a once in a lifetime event and you don't want to miss it. FM NewsTalk 97.1 and Hansen's Tree Service proudly present Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck, Friday October 7th, at the Family Arena. Tickets are on sale now through Metrotix.

(Perhaps the above statement provides us a little insight as to when Sarah Palin will announce her candidacy? Not until after October 7th?)

Glenn has been pretty lukewarm about any of the presidential candidates. He's been "interested" mostly (so far) in Bachmann, Perry, and Santorum. However, *I think* that is only because Sarah is not yet in the race. I KNOW that Glenn will be a supporter of Sarah's once she announces her candidacy. (He doesn't "endorse" candidates. He may eventually say who he'll vote for, but, he doesn't "endorse.")

I know that Glenn will support Sarah because he has ALWAYS BEEN a supporter of Sarah's. He's stood up for her time and time again and on numerous occasions he has taken on those that have bashed her. In fact, Glenn has been a supporter of Sarah Palin's since June of 2008. Name ANY other national media figure that can say that.

Anyone that says Glenn Beck is not a supporter of Sarah Palin is simply ignorant and couldn't be more wrong. I'll post links below to back-up everything I've said about Glenn's long-time and continuing support for Governor Palin.

As for you conservatives that call Glenn Beck a "phony" because he cries sometimes...grow up. Or better yet, man sound like liberal-Beck-bashers when you talk like that. If you truly believe that Beck's crying is "phony," you may just BE a dishonest and incapable-of-making-an-honest-assessment-based-on-the-evidence-that-is-right-in-front-of-your-face liberal.

Al Gore's Last Ditch Effort to Rescue His Climate Lie

Last I heard, Al Gore had, so far, profited somewhere in the area of $100 million dollars from his self-invented, 30-year-old lie about global warming. There has even been speculation that Gore could become the world's first "carbon billionaire." I guess once this guy gets an idea in his head its difficult to change his mind.

No matter how many politically-motivated, lying, liberal "climate scientists" he has on his "side" I'll never buy into his lies. I'm a little hard-headed, too, Al. Oh, and I was blessed by God with common sense. Sorry you weren't, Al.

Gore is now embarking on a last ditch effort to attempt to resurrect and re-new his faltering life's mission.

(Reuters) - Former Vice President Al Gore will renew his 30-year campaign to convince skeptics of the link between climate change and extreme weather events this week in a 24-hour global multi-media event.

"24 Hours of Reality" will broadcast a presentation by Al Gore every hour for 24 hours across 24 different time zones from Wednesday to Thursday, with the aim of convincing climate change deniers and driving action against global warming among households, schools and businesses.

The campaign also asks people to hand over control of their social networking accounts on Facebook and Twitter to it for 24 hours to deliver Gore's message.

"There will be 200 new slides arguing the connection between more extreme weather and climate change," Trewin Restorick, chief executive of the event's UK partner Global Action Plan, told Reuters on Monday.

"There will be a full-on assault on climate skeptics, exploring where they get their funding from."

Gore tried to raise awareness about global warming in the 2006 documentary film "An Inconvenient Truth," which earned $49 million at the box office worldwide. The film was criticized by some climate change skeptics for being one-sided.

Concern about climate change in the United States, the world's second biggest emitter, has fallen steadily to 48 percent in 2011, from 62 percent in 2007, an opinion poll showed in August.

Gore's presentation will be available at:

The article above is from Reuters.

I can only imagine that as every tornado season rearranges lives and cities (as has been the case since the beginning of time), and as new hurricanes form (as has been the case since the beginning of time), or when record rainfall is received (as has been the case since the beginning of time) that Algore is sitting in his carbon-emitting lair rubbing his evil hands together thinking how great each catastrophe is for him and the preponderance of his money-making lie. For it is only extreme weather events like those I listed with which Algore seems to be concerned. Never mind the many weather records that have stood since weather record-keeping began.

One of Algore's biggest hypocrisies is to deny (deny, deny, deny) the correlation between fair weather and "climate change." If there is a mild winter, for example, this can not be used as evidence that "climate change" does NOT exist. Only record snowfall and extreme temperatures, for example, may be used to PROVE his case. The opposite can never be used to DISPROVE his fraudulent claims. I suppose it is his aforementioned lack of common sense that permits this, as well as the astounding level of hypocrisy that encapsulates this squalid movement and those at the forefront of it.

The climate has always changed and will always matter what humans do...or what they don't do. Prior to the invention of the combustion engine, the number one "carbon emitter," tornadoes, hurricanes, massive snowfall, record high and low temperatures, tropical storms and depressions, floods, severe drought, and severe storms and weather of all types existed.

Take a look at this "top-ten list" of deadliest natural disasters:

10. Aleppo Earthquake – 1138, Syria [Deaths: 230,000]
9. Indian Ocean Earthquake – 2004, Indian Ocean [Deaths: 230,000]
8. Banqiao Dam Failure – 1975, China [Deaths: 231,000]
7. Tangshan Earthquake – 1976, China [Deaths: 242,000]
6. Kaifeng Flood – 1642, China [Deaths: 300,000]
5. India Cyclone – 1839, India [Deaths: 300,000+]
4. Shaanxi Earthquake – 1556, China [Deaths: 830,000]
3. Bhola Cyclone – 1970, Bangladesh [Deaths: 500,000 - 1,000,000]
2. Yellow River Flood – 1887, China [Deaths: 900,000 - 2,000,000]
1. Yellow River Flood – 1931, China [Deaths: 1,000,000 - 4,000,000]

If you remove the four earthquakes and the dam failure in 1975 from the above list, what is left to prove that "global warming" or "climate change" has affected our weather? Nothing. (For the record, there are members of the global warming cult that DO believe that "climate change" affects earthquakes and volcanoes.)

Actually, if Algore was really concerned about the future of mankind, he'd be welcoming of warmer temperatures because EXTREME COLD is the number one killer in the United States. Shame on you, Al.

Due to his lies about the negative effect of carbon dioxide on our environment, I must also suppose that Algore knows nothing of photosynthesis. Something we all learned about in the 7th grade. The video below shows the effects of carbon dioxide (CO2) on plant life.

Seems to me, when it comes to carbon dioxide, more is better. But, why let a little PROVEN and ACCEPTED science get in the way of an agenda and massive profit, right Al?

Algore's climate lie has the potential to change the way you live. Politicians that buy into his bullcrap are in a position to change the American way of life by placing restrictions on carbon emissions by "carbon producers" all over the country. (As soon as they figure out a way to tax cow farts, I'm certain they will.) Once energy producers in this country are forced to pay for their "excessive carbon emissions" (deemed as such by the EPA) the price of EVERY SINGLE THING we buy via the "cap and trade" scheme will increase. It won't be the energy producers' pockets that these new "taxes" come out of, it will be ours.

I suggest, that this week, while Algore is asking us to "hand over control of (our) social networking accounts on Facebook and Twitter to it for 24 hours to deliver Gore's message" that we, instead, dedicate that 24-hour period to ELIMINATING Algore's LIE by sharing the videos I've included in this post. Of course, you could just repeatedly re-post this article and kill all birds with one stone. For you liberals, that is what is known as a metaphor. No actual birds will be harmed...unlike their fate when flying around your "green" wind turbines as evidenced in the next video.

In the meantime, while Algore's lie is languishing before us...we have this: The full-length movie "The Great Global Warming Swindle." I highly recommend watching AND sharing it with your friends...especially on Wednesday and Thursday of this week. Let's help Algore "spread the word." Isn't "social networking" fun? :)

Rather than provide a complete explanation of the following videos, I'm just going to post them and their titles as important videos that if you haven't seen already, and you are on the fence about the whole "man-made global warming" subject, you should see. If you have relatives, friends or neighbors that aren't quite sure whether or not "global warming" or "climate change" is man-made or man-caused, forward this post to them for them to see. This is the side of the debate that doesn't get any coverage from the mainstream media. It is up to us to spread the other side and let people make up their own minds. This is one reason I don't want to provide any commentary about the following videos; I've made my position clear on where I stand on the whole debate.

"Updated with Slides - Lord Christopher Monckton Speaking in St. Paul" (This original video had none of the "slides" from Lord Monckton's speech. The original video only showed him speaking from the lectern and never cut to the "slides" to which he refers to quite often in the video.)

"Lord Monckton Totally Destroys Global Warming & Greenpeace!"
(Lord Monckton discusses the theory of global warming with a Greenpeace activist on the street outside of a Greenpeace function.)

"Lord Monckton: Global Warming big scientific fad"

"Glenn Beck-Lord Monckton Debate Global Warming"
In this video, Lord Monckton challenges Algore AGAIN to a debate. The video was posted to YouTube on October 30, 2009. Algore still has not taken Lord Monckton up on his challenge. Nor will he.  Ever.

Yes, I'm a big fan of Lord Monckton. But, he's not the only naysayer of the global warming/climate change scam. There's this guy, Patrick Moore, co-founder of the environmental organization Greenpeace. Yes, Greenpeace.

You can buy Patrick Moore's e-book "Confessions of a Greenpeace Dropout: The Making of a Sensible Environmentalist" here from Amazon for $9.99. The real, physical, hardbound book costs around of $34.00.

You can also find a little more information about Patrick Moore from this post on where the two videos above from FOX News are embedded.

Or, I'm sure you can use Google the same as I. When searching either Lord Christopher Monckton or Patrick Moore please keep in mind the overwhelming liberal agenda of the "believers" of the global warming movement. These two good men have been smeared by the left in almost every possible way. Listen to and read their OWN words IN CONTEXT and decide for yourself how you choose to interpret the information they offer. For example, searching for "debunking Lord Monckton" will result in 80 videos. Listen to the evidence and decide for yourself.

I'm also going to include links to several other videos and articles below. All of them are worth a look for anyone who remains a skeptic.

Obama Lies Again - Boots on the Ground in Libya

Once again, President Barack Obama has told another lie. Is it because he just has no clue what he's doing? Is it because his speechwriters don't have a clue what is going on? If they don't, why does Obama read their words? Exactly.

Earlier this year, when President Obama announced United States involvement in the NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) operation in Libya he promised that there will be "no boots on the ground in Libya." Now, today, we find out that there most certainly are Americans on the ground in Libya. What gives, Mr. President?

From FOX News:

Despite repeated assurances from President Obama and military leaders that the U.S. would not send uniformed military personnel into Libya, four U.S. service members arrived on the ground in Tripoli over the weekend.

According to Pentagon spokesman Capt. John Kirby, the four unidentified troops are there working under the State Department's chief of mission to assist in rebuilding the U.S. Embassy.

Kirby noted the embassy in Tripoli was badly damaged during the conflict between Muammar Qaddafi's forces and the rebels.

Two of the military personnel are explosive-ordnance experts who will be used to disable any explosives traps left in the embassy. The other two are "general security," according to Kirby.

Kirby also made clear these troops are in no way part of a military operation on the ground. They are armed, however, if for some reason they need to protect themselves.

The troops are only expected to be there for a short while. After the assessment of the embassy is complete, they are expected to leave.

Details, details.

Read more from FOX News HERE.

The video below is from March 18, 2011...let me be clear.
6:32 "I also want to be clear about what we will NOT be doing. The U.S. is not going to deploy ground troops into Libya and we are not going to use force to go beyond a well-defined goal. Specifically, the protection of civilians in Libya."

March 19, 2011
2:02 "As a part of this effort the United States will contribute our unique capabilities at the front end of the mission to protect Libyan civilians and enable the enforcement of a no-fly zone that will be lead by our international partners. And as I said yesterday, we will NOT, I repeat, we will NOT deploy any U.S. troops on the ground."

This next video is the President's weekly address which was uploaded to YouTube on March 25, 2011.
1:54 "As I pledged at the outset, the role of American forces has been limited. We're not putting ANY ground forces into Libya."

Labor Union Tries to Block Grain Exports

The face of the ILWU.
Nebraskans, corn growers, grain farmers, you may want to pay attention to a labor union battle that is taking place on the west coast. There is a union, the ILWU (International Longshore and Warehouse Union), that has been attempting to block the transfer of your grain on its way to being exported. Why? Because this union has been "in negotiations" with EGT, LLC, a grain exporter, for the past several months over 35 jobs. Yes, thirty-five jobs.

EGT, the operator of the first new grain elevator in nearly two decades in the United States in Longview, WA decided to hire their workers from a different union than the ILWU. The ILWU workers are, in typical union fashion, only concerned with THEIR jobs. Not yours. Not the other UNION workers that were hired. Only their OWN union members and they have attempted to block the trains that transfer your grain to port.

This fight has been going on since early this year. As the years go by and unions have become less and less relevant to the American way of life, and as union membership is at its lowest point since the 1930's, unions are feeling squeezed. And they're fighting back...literally.

A "peaceful" ILWU member
threatening a TV reporter.
These are NOT the "peaceful" or "non-violent" protests that some in the media are saying they are. I've included several videos below that prove this fact. These are videos that I have downloaded and will replace on YouTube if they become "unavailable" or are removed from YouTube. Some of these videos were apparently recorded BY union members present at these rallies and protests and were uploaded to YouTube to show what is going on. This is exactly what these videos show. The truth of what is happening at these union bitchfests.

Some of the videos were recorded and uploaded by the people who continue to work inside the plant that is being protested. These people are called "scabs" by the union. It is in these videos that you also get a glimpse into a different side of the fight. The view from the people who ARE working. Who are NOT towing the union-line. I say, these are the brave and non-violent people in this situation. Not the mass numbers of union cowards who only fight in groups, intimidate in groups and vandalize in groups.

Now, the videos...

These first two videos show some of the arrests that took place last Wednesday after the ILWU stood on the railroad tracks and blocked a train headed to the port. The union workers eventually let the train pass, but not before dumping some of the grain from the train cars and cutting brake lines on the train. Yes, they are a classy bunch.

In this video, which is really just an audio recording from a local radio show, an ILWU spokesman admits that his union members trespassed and destroyed property. Also, notice the "stick" that the sign is attached to in the picture below.

This video shows you an interview with the president of the local 21 ILWU in Longview, WA which was conducted by the "Freedom Socialist" newspaper. No, you can not make this stuff up.

And, another interview by the "Freedom Socialist" newspaper in which an ILWU longshoreman claims that their union "should have jurisdiction over this port" (Port of Longview). "We should have this entire facility. This should be our work." Maybe if they'd begin their own business, it could be "their work."

Here, in this video from August 12, 2011, you can see and hear how the ILWU workers behave on the picket line. A few arrests are made.

This next video shows what I like to call "the face of the ILWU." This guy wouldn't know how to behave properly if he was provided a life-long class on the subject by his favorite union.

Here's more "union class" on display. This video was shot by a "scab" as he was crossing a picket line in his vehicle.

These next two videos show members of the ILWU addressing the Operating Engineers Local 701, which is the union that has been hired by EGT. Intimidation is the theme of both of the videos.

Now, something that I have discovered, which I have not read about anywhere else, is the fact that this union has been accused of discrimination in its hiring practices and the fact that they are an anti-Israel union. Both of these allegations I'm making are substantiated by the following video evidence.

This video was posted on YouTube on February 15, 2011. It addresses the hiring practices of the ILWU in Seattle, WA.

These next two videos show the ILWU participating in anti-Israeli protests in 2009 and 2010, respectively.

The ILWU has a long history of political activism which you can read more about HERE.

As I stated earlier, I downloaded several of these videos from YouTube. One such video that I downloaded was, in fact, removed from YouTube by the person that uploaded it. An edited version of this video remains on YouTube. In the edited video that remains, you can see "Disturbing video shows car plowing into ILWU workers at Port of Longview's EGT facility;" that is the title of the video below.

Now, here is the video that I uploaded to YouTube which shows the complete and original video of the SUV "plowing into" the ILWU picket line. It shows a more complete picture of what really occurred on the picket line. It's understandable that the union goon that uploaded it would have wanted it removed. I wonder if any of the union goons will be charged with vandalism?

Something that is always talked about when discussing "working men" (which is liberal language for "union members") is how hard they work to just "survive" and "put food on the table" and how hard it is to "make ends meet" while laboring at their menial jobs. If you care to see how "rough" these "poor, working-class men" have it, watch this next video. This was uploaded by Scott Barton, an ILWU longshoreman. He takes you on a tour of his "poor man's" backyard. Almost all of Scott's other videos on YouTube are of him operating a crane at the Port of Longview.

And, the ILWU is Panama. This video is from September 10, 2011.

So, grain farmers, pay attention. Pay attention to what further actions this union takes to interfere with the shipment of your grain. I believe the evidence I've provided should more than convince you that they are not about to stop. The only question that really remains is: How far are they willing to go?

President Bush Speaks At Flight 93 Memorial on 10th Anniversary of 9/11 (Video & Transcript)

Former President George W. Bush spoke at the Flight 93 Memorial service today in Shanksville, PA. You can watch the speech below or read the full transcript here or below the video.

"Today, our fellow citizens, our way of life, our very freedom came under attack in a series of deliberate and deadly terrorist acts. The victims were in airplanes, or in their offices; secretaries, businessmen and women, military and federal workers; moms and dads, friends and neighbors. Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts of terror.

"The pictures of airplanes flying into buildings, fires burning, huge structures collapsing, have filled us with disbelief, terrible sadness, and a quiet, unyielding anger. These acts of mass murder were intended to frighten our nation into chaos and retreat. But they have failed; our country is strong.

"A great people has been moved to defend a great nation. Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shattered steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve.

"America was targeted for attack because we're the brightest beacon for freedom and opportunity in the world. And no one will keep that light from shining.

"Today, our nation saw evil, the very worst of human nature. And we responded with the best of America — with the daring of our rescue workers, with the caring for strangers and neighbors who came to give blood and help in any way they could.

"Immediately following the first attack, I implemented our government's emergency response plans. Our military is powerful, and it's prepared. Our emergency teams are working in New York City and Washington, D.C. to help with local rescue efforts.

"Our first priority is to get help to those who have been injured, and to take every precaution to protect our citizens at home and around the world from further attacks.

"The functions of our government continue without interruption. Federal agencies in Washington which had to be evacuated today are reopening for essential personnel tonight, and will be open for business tomorrow. Our financial institutions remain strong, and the American economy will be open for business, as well.

"The search is underway for those who are behind these evil acts. I've directed the full resources of our intelligence and law enforcement communities to find those responsible and to bring them to justice. We will make no distinction between the terrorists who committed these acts and those who harbor them.

"I appreciate so very much the members of Congress who have joined me in strongly condemning these attacks. And on behalf of the American people, I thank the many world leaders who have called to offer their condolences and assistance.

"America and our friends and allies join with all those who want peace and security in the world, and we stand together to win the war against terrorism. Tonight, I ask for your prayers for all those who grieve, for the children whose worlds have been shattered, for all whose sense of safety and security has been threatened. And I pray they will be comforted by a power greater than any of us, spoken through the ages in Psalm 23: 'Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me.'

"This is a day when all Americans from every walk of life unite in our resolve for justice and peace. America has stood down enemies before, and we will do so this time. None of us will ever forget this day. Yet, we go forward to defend freedom and all that is good and just in our world.

"Thank you. Good night, and God bless America."

Thank you, sir. God bless you.

Video Game Allows Users to Kill "Tea Party Zombies" (Video)

Video posted on xxxxxxxpimptaddyone's YouTube Channel

xxxxxxxpimptaddyone actually played a little of the video game and posted the following underneath his video.

The party of civility is at it again.

Refusing to have a legitimate discussion on the merits of each side's economic ideology, the Left has just gone ahead and decided that Tea Partiers are zombies. And those zombies must die!

Thus is the premise of the online video game "Tea Party Zombies Must Die!"

Among those that the Left wants murdered are Brit Hume, Bill O'Reilly, and Sean Hannity:
Along with Glenn Beck:
And, yes, I actually tried to play the game. It was decidedly laggy and decidedly racist (there's a swastika visible within moments of starting your game). I know I shouldn't expect anything better from liberals, but when you're going to make something this offensive,you could at least try to pretend you're making a point.

Don't forget: civility!

Mini-tour of Ground Zero With "Hard-hat Andy" Sullivan

Take a mini-tour of Ground Zero with "Hard Hat Andy." In the first two videos below Andy Sullivan from Blue Collar Corner and The 9/11 Hard Hat Pledge goes on a walk around the Freedom Tower construction site and discusses some of the progress that's taking place. In the third video, Andy walks you up to the front steps of the Ground Zero mosque.

You can find all of these videos and many more on Andy's YouTube channel. Be sure to subscribe and click to be notified by email of his new uploads.

Here's Andy's description beneath the 1st video:
I was down at Ground Zero for a interview with the BBC and decided to show some of the Hard Hats who are out of state what has been taking place and what stage we are at. Of course this is for all Americans to view and I feel honored to bring them to you now.

Here's Andy's description beneath the 2nd video:
We take a walk down the Ground Zero area to view what stages we are at and to get a first hand look at some of the latest in building design. I cannot believe we are at the 10 year mark knowing full well we could have had these built up years ago. It still makes me feel better just seeing the buildings rising from the earth.

Here's Andy's description beneath the 3rd video:
We take a stroll down at the location of the Ground Zero Mosque which is under 24 hour watch. It seems they are content on keeping the building intact. They are not getting the donations Gamal was hoping for and he is being dragged into court by 2 Big Banks for 2 seperate big loans.We are not writing them off they have actually tried applying for federal tax dollars from the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation. This cannot be allowed -we will keep you up to date.

CNN's John King Alleges Racism by Unions - Jimmy Hoffa Doesn't Deny

Following AFL-CIO Union boss Jimmy Hoffa's firebrand remarks aimed at the Tea Party at a Labor Day rally in Detroit on Monday, Hoffa appeared on CNN with John King. During the interview John King asserts reluctance by the unions to vote for Senator Obama in the 2008 Presidential election because of his race. Hoffa doesn't acknowledge or respond to King's assertion. You can see this exchange in the video below:

I'll presume that Hoffa agrees with King's assertion.

Here is the entire video from CNN:

Obama's Ratings At All-time Low - The Thrill is Gone

From the Washington Post:

Public pessimism about the direction of the country has jumped to its highest level in nearly three years, erasing the sense of hope that followed President Obama’s inauguration and pushing his approval ratings to a record low, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

More than 60 percent of those surveyed say they disapprove of the way the president is handling the economy and, what has become issue No. 1, the stagnant jobs situation. Just 43 percent now approve of the job he is doing overall, a new career low; 53 percent disapprove, a new high.

At the time of this post the Gallup Daily Obama Job Approval rating is at: Disapprove=50% Approve=42%

I guess the thrill is gone.

Sarah Palin vs. Lady Gaga - Rap Battle (Video)

This is a silly video I came across on YouTube. It is a "rap battle" between "Sarah Palin" and "Lady Gaga." Palin supporters, remember, this is a BATTLE - so, they BOTH insult each other. Usually it's only Palin being insulted. In this video, "Sarah" gets to do a little insulting of her own.

I'll take a moment here to warn you about the language and visuals in this video. It's not for children or for those who are easily offended.

It lasts about a minute and a half.

I think it's pretty funny. What do you think?

Militant Anti-abortion Crowd is a Detriment to Conservative Agenda

Notice the title of this article states: "MILITANT Anti-abortion crowd..."

The militant anti-abortion crowd on the right is just as capable of discrediting their movement as are the militant fools on the left. I think I'm a fairly reasonable person (others may not). I most certainly have my moments when my "radical side" will show itself, however, it's not the person I am 24/7. While discussing a related-subject with a Facebook friend, I came across the video that inspired this post, which is included below the fold. Something, or someone, is telling me to not let it go. I guess this must be my "radical side" showing itself now. (Please notice that I, unlike the people in the video below, am not protesting outside the homes of those with which I disagree.)

I have strong convictions about the actions that those of us on the right choose to take...and choose not to take. There are times when people on the right do things that are just as damaging to our cause as the actions that some/many choose not to take. That being said, I feel a STRONG need to disagree with the actions of this anti-abortion group known as "The Forerunner" from Framingham, Massachusetts (they state their location on their YouTube Channel).

Protesting outside someone's residence is just WRONG. The actions of this group harken to those of the radical...and, I mean RADICAL left (anarchists, communists, socialists, unions).

I felt the need to leave the following comment underneath their video (which I've posted below). Mind you, YouTube's comments are limited to only 500 characters. Therefore, my comment was nowhere NEAR as inclusive as I wished it to be (which was another reason I started this blog).

I understand & AGREE WITH your REASON for picketing. But picketing SOMEONE'S HOME is unforgivable, leftist, uneducated, and un-called for.

Radical, leftist, progressives do this kind of thing. Peace-loving people on the right DO NOT. As a Tea Partier, I denounce your actions!!!

Get OUT of people's neighborhoods. It's just WRONG. Ppl should have safety in their homes. What u did was wrong & I have zero respect for it. Same as I have zero respect 4 those that protest at the homes of bankers.

I understand that their belief is strong. I understand that I won't have a bit of influence on their agenda (nor is that what I seek). I understand that some won't understand my post here and will get mad at me for stating my beliefs. Join the crowd, haters.

- I DO NOT support abortion.
- I would never encourage someone to have an abortion.
- I would attempt to STOP someone I knew from having an abortion by talking with them if they were open to such a discussion.
- I believe abortion is WRONG.
- I believe abortion is murder.
- I believe the effect on the women who have abortions is hidden by the national media. Many women who have had abortions have a very tough time living with that fact. It affects many of these women for their entire life.
- I do NOT think that, in our Constitutional Republic which was founded on the word of God, it is the responsibility of the GOVERNMENT to prevent American citizens from choosing to have an abortion.
- I do not believe that any government funding should be applied in any capacity which supports abortion.
- I believe that parents who use their children at protests such as these are just as misguided as other parents that use their children as props in any other type of protest.
- I believe that the vast majority of these protesters are not violent nor would they become so, if provoked.

- I think that the people in the video below are wrong for choosing to protest outside the home of an abortion doctor.

"Pro-life picket of Planned Parenthood CEO Susan Idtensohn's residence - 7/19/2011"

The above video is not an isolated incident. These folks also saw fit to protest outside the homes of other abortion doctors HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE. These protests took place from March through August of this year.

This group has also protested outside the offices of abortion doctors or Planned Parenthood clinics, which, for the record, I wholly support. HERE and HERE. Other such videos may be found on their YouTube channel found HERE. Also, HERE is their website.

Again, I do NOT support abortion and I DO support the picketing of abortion-related businesses. I can not and do NOT support the picketing of anyone's residence. It doesn't matter what the reason.

I understand the evil of Planned Parenthood and so does this organization as evidenced in the video below. I wish more people understood the evil ingrained in the foundation of Planned Parenthood.

For the record, you can find video of an SEIU-organized (Service Employee International Union) protest outside the home of a Bank of America executive HERE posted at

More information about this Bank of America protest is HERE in this YouTube video which is an interview of Nina Easton (her neighbor's home is the one which was protested) conducted by Megyn Kelly on FOX News. HERE is a piece about this same protest written by Nina Easton which was published at

While the protests by the anti-abortion group reached nowhere near the volume (sound level) of the SEIU protest outside the home of the Bank of America executive, I find both protests to be in bad taste. As a Conservative, such tactics are unacceptable to me. If I disagree with the protest outside the home of a Bank of America executive, I must also disagree with the protest outside the home of an abortion doctor. Please, find another way.

Tea Party Patriots - Speak the Truth YouTube Campaign: "I am a Tea Party Patriot"

Today, I and thousands of other Americans, received an email from Tea Party Patriots stating that they are beginning a video campaign to combat the lies that are being told about Tea Party members. Go HERE to read their email and gain a better understanding of their mission and how you can participate.

One thing they left out of their email was to tell people that if you are going to upload a video to YouTube (recommended) or Facebook (not recommended) that ALL VIDEOS SHOULD HAVE THE SAME TITLE.

As of right now, there are 7 videos on YouTube and none of them are showing up as being "related" to each other because most of them have different titles, tags, and information in the description beneath each of the videos.

I will make this offer: If you are unable to record your own video I can do it for you.

Step One: I would suggest that you send me a friend request on my political Facebook account: RightWing KookTank

Step Two: Once we are connected via Facebook, I would give you instructions regarding how and when you can reach me and how you can send a picture of yourself (to be used in the video) --- I can't make that NOT sound creepy. LOL Sorry. :)

Step Three: You call me with your prepared remarks that you'd like to have in your short video (about 30 seconds) and I'd put you on speaker phone and record your remarks.

Step Four: I'd make the video and upload it to YouTube.

Step Five: I'd email you the link for YOUR video and YOU would submit it to Tea Party Patriots via THEIR FORM.

(Also, if you're unsure how to send a picture via email, I could get a picture from your Facebook page after you friend me there, provided you have one uploaded to Facebook.)

That's it.

Below, I have posted all 7 vids that are currently on YouTube. I will update this post over the next few days as more videos are added.

Oh! I should also state that I am MUCH more comfortable BEHIND the, I most likely will not be making a video of myself to upload. ;)

***If you make your own video, do NOT state your full name and the city in which you live.***


Not everyone is titling their video the same. This makes these videos extremely difficult to find on YouTube. If all of the videos had the same title they would show up on YouTube as "suggested videos" on the right-hand side while you're watching one of these videos on YouTube. But, because some people aren't even giving their video a title, they're just leaving the original file name as the title, their video just gets "lost" on YouTube. You really have to search to find these videos...which totally defeats the purpose of this whole campaign. I'm not sure if the leadership at Tea Party Patriots understand this or not...I'm guessing they don't.

More videos are being added...

Illinois Man Faces 75 Years in Prison for Recording Police (Video)

Bridgeport, IL resident Michael Allison faces 75 years in prison for recording police without their consent. Allison has been charged under an old Illinois eavesdropping statute which allows police to record citizens without their consent but doesn't allow citizens to record police without their consent. This is the first "crime" with which the 42-year-old Michael Allison has ever been charged...and, he could wind up in prison for seventy-five years.

I've searched and searched and I can't find a case where someone has actually been convicted of a crime like this. Remember, Mr. Allison has ONLY been charged. He has not been convicted and it is highly doubtful that he will be.

There HAVE been numerous other cases where U.S. citizens have been charged, yet none of them resulted in a conviction. The biggest problem with a case like this is that ticked-off and/or ignorant police officers are unnecessarily messing with the lives of the citizens they are sworn to protect. Not to mention the fact that they open their departments up to civil litigation when the citizen they've detained for a non-crime decides to seek "damages" for the trouble they've been put through while fighting these illegitimate charges.

UPDATE: Federal appeals courts are ruling these actions by police to be unconstitutional.
First Circuit Upholds Right To Videotape Arresting Officers

Nebraska Progressive Republican Governor Dave Heineman Caves to Environmentalist Wackos (Video)

Nebraska's Progressive Republican Governor Dave Heineman sent a letter to President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton today asking that the permit for construction of the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline be denied. The pipeline (like the pipeline constructed across Nebraska in 2009) is proposed to run atop the Ogallala Aquifer (like the pipeline constructed across Nebraska in 2009). Click HERE to learn about the Ogallala Aquifer.

I'll be writing a more in-depth post about the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline in the near future. I hope to have it completed next week. I will lay out the obvious connections to progressive "green groups" all over the country that have their hands in halting the construction of this pipeline that could lessen the USA's reliance on Middle Eastern sources of oil.  We STILL wouldn't be drilling for our OWN oil, we'd just be getting more from Canada as opposed to getting it from countries that despise the United States.

This pipeline is proposed to run from Alberta, Canada to the Gulf of Mexico.  The environmentalist wackos have taken hold of too large a number of usually rationally-thinking Nebraskans and turned them into "useful idiots" who are proving to be more than willing to beat the drum for the enviro-cause-of-the-month.

Now, our Progressive Republican Governor Dave Heineman has pulled a "Ben Nelson" on the citizens of Nebraska and SOLD OUT the entire United States by asking Obama to deny this pipeline permit.  What a surprise.  (I wish.)

No, the Governor of Nebraska does not always wear a "Husker" shirt.

Oh!  If you'd like to see a video about the other Keystone Pipeline that was built across the Ogallala Aquifer in the video below.  I remember all of the "Welcome Pipeliners" signs ALL OVER town (Norfolk, NE), too...a couple of them were even customers of mine while they were around town.  ;)

Thanks, Gov.

Hopefully, this headline has it right: "Alberta-Texas pipeline looking like a sure thing."

I can't imagine President Obama doing anything that's actually GOOD for our country, however. One would think that Governor Heineman would know that. I guess he hasn't been paying attention...

...or perhaps he was smitten by actress Daryl Hannah who was arrested in D.C. yesterday protesting the Keystone XL Pipeline. :)
