President Barack Obama has revealed the US has seen evidence of chemical weapons being used in Syria.
His announcement comes as Russia sends in advanced missiles to Syria in a move that highlights the depth of its support for President Bashar al-Assad.
Remember when Bill Clinton bombed an asprin factory in Sudan to distract us all from Monica news?
Wow. So much has broken in the past few days, it feels like we are being purposefully swamped with one thing after another to keep us yelling, “Squirrel!” Honestly, my head is spinning trying to keep up with all the different scandals, and boy howdy are there plenty of scandals. They keep rolling in all Fast And Furious like. Heh, see what I did there? Fast and Furious is still UNRESOLVED, and the families of Brian Terry, Jamie Zapata, and countless Mexicans deserve answers from AG Eric Holder & the Obama Administration. Answers they very likely will never get.
The EPA apparently charged conservative groups for FOIA requests, but “forgave” the fee for any liberal groups that asked for information. They’ve also been looking the other way A LOT when it comes to wind farms killing endangered birds.
There’s Umbrella-gate, where the President had a couple of United States Marines break their uniform code to hold umbrellas over his head & the head of the Turkish Prime Minister. In a stunning display of disrespect for the Marines. he actually said he wanted them because, “They’ll look good next to us.” (Video is at the link.)
Kathleen Sebulius over at Health and Human Services has been exposed for leaning on companies the HHS does business with and “encouraging” them to donate to non-profit organizations that have been helping to implement Obamacare.
The DOJ seized phone records of reporters at the AP (Associated Press), both work and personal phones. The official story is that they were trying to track down the source of a dangerous leak that compromised national security. The truth – the AP sat on the story for 5 days before getting the all clear from the CIA. The Obama Admin was upset that AP stole their thunder by publishing when they did. The scariest part of this story though, is not the AP records seizure. It’s that the records could be seized without notifying anyone because the phone company was considered a “third party”. Think about what this means for all that information being stored in the cloud, and how more and more we are being pushed into storing our information in the cloud by companies like Microsoft & Google, both of which are well known for working with the government whenever they get asked.
Then there is the IRS targeting of conservative groups, like our very own Hampton Roads Tea Party. But as we quickly found out, it wasn’t just conservative groups, but religious groups, Jewish groups, and even some reporters who had dared to ask a tough question before the election. In the case of Larry Connors of MO, not only was he likely targeted, he was forced to read a retraction on air, he has been thrown under the bus and kicked off the air by the parent company of his station, because it’s run by Obama sympathizers. Despite the administration’s pathetic attempt at a narrative claiming this was some rouge operatives in the lower levels of the IRS’s Cincinnati office, top officials within the IRS knew about this since at least 2011. And if that’s not enough, the word is out now that the woman in charge of the Non-Profit Approval division has not only NOT been fired, but she was promoted! She’s now in charge of the Obamacare division of the IRS. Seriously folks, you can’t make this stuff up.
But all of those are just the A-1 Steak Sauce of this meal. The Benghazi scandal is the real meat and potatoes. Four dead Americans, and a HUGE coverup. Enough of the emails have been released to thoroughly disprove the administration’s narrative. They claimed that only 1 small edit was made to the talking points by the executive branch (which includes the State Dept), but evidence now shows that the White House was involved in edits so drastic, the then-chief of the CIA said, “Frankly, I’d just as soon not use this[.]” We’ve also discovered that the brother of a White House Official tied to the Benghazi scandal is non other than the President of CBS News.
It’s no wonder my head is reeling. But realize this, Benghazi was covered up to protect the President just months before the 2012 elections. The IRS targeted groups ahead of the election, making it hard for them to do business. The AP was likely investigated because they blew Obama’s planned victory dance, just months before the election. And the IRS, EPA, HHS, & AP scandals were all released, back-to-back, to provide distraction from testimony of the survivors of the terror attack at the Benghazi Consulate. To top it all off, a Drudge Report editor claims his source at the CIA says there will be more.
FYI: CIA source says still one more shoe to drop. Yes, four shoes. Dead ambassador, tapped phones, IRS probes. Will it be worse? Can it be?!

Jim Carrey doubled down on the sexism in his tweet:
Owning a handgun or a shotgun is 1 thing bt if u need more fire power than that, it means you’re shootin’ blanks in the bedroom.
I guess he thinks only men own guns.
JIM CARREY (AS EARL): It takes a cold dead hand to decide to pull the trigger.
takes a cold dead heart, and as near as I can figure
with your cold dead aim you’re trying to prove your dick is bigger,
but we know: your chariot may not be swingin’ low.
Cold dead hand, cold dead hand
Cold dead hand, cold dead hand
You’re a big dick man with a little bitty gland
so you need something bigger just to fill your cold dead hand
I refuse to link to this idiot’s video & give him more views. The quote from his “song” above is proof that the man is incredibly sexist. He seems to ignore the plethora of female gun owners & link guns to the size of male copulatory organs.
When he’s not displaying is misogynistic tendencies, he’s making fun of a dead man. Instead of going after Wayne LaPierre, Ted Nugent, or anyone else who has come out in support of the Second Amendment, he chose to ridicule Charlton Heston – a man who served his country in WW2, who marched with Martin Luther King Jr for Civil Rights, and had worked to defend America’s Second Amendment rights. Oooo…. Big brave man to make fun of a dead man who is not around to defend himself. So not only is Jim Carrey a sexist moron, he’s a coward to boot.
And! He’s Canadian (who became a Naturalized American in 2004). What is it with people from other countries trying to tell Americans how to live? I’m looking at you Piers Morgan.
I leave you with this clip of the great Charlton Heston discussing Civil Rights:
I swear this woman has an eating disorder & is forcing her psychosis on the the rest of us.
“But in the end, we also know that it’s not enough to simply change the way our children eat — we have to change our own habits and behaviors as well. And this is final point I want to make today. We as parents are our children’s first and best role models and this is particularly true when it comes to their health. Research shows that kids who have at least one obese parent or more are then twice as likely to be obese as adults. So, as much as we might plead with our kids to “do as I say and not as I do,” we know that we can’t lie around on the couch eating French fries and candy bars and expect our kids to eat carrots and run around the block. But too often that’s exactly what we’re doing.” FLOTUS Goes After Obese Parents.
What about those of us who have medical issues that cause us to gain weight? I’ve got a thyroid problem that went undiagnosed for several years, and has resulted in weight gain.
Or the fact that childbirth widens your hips and changes your bone structure? I was a skinny size 12 when I got married. I had my first baby, and my hips got so wide I can’t wear anything under a 20 just because of my hips.
I dare this woman to come talk to me.
One year ago today I woke up to learn that Andrew Breitbart had died. I didn’t want to believe it. I hoped and prayed it was a hoax, a publicity stunt for the movie Hating Breitbart that was about to be released at the time. As the day wore on, I watched and listened to the grief pour from those who knew him best, people like Dana Loesch, Larry O’Connor, Joel Pollack, and many others. I joined the throngs of conservatives online in openly mourning his passing. I chatted at various virtual wakes held in chatrooms associated with the radio and internet shows of those who were in his inner circle. The death of Andrew was my generation’s Elvis. He had touched so many lives. Yet through the tears, a rallying cry began to form:
As conservatives all around me began to pick up the pieces of our shattered hearts, we all determined to carry on Andrew’s fight. In his CPAC 2012 speech, Andrew told us all he had bought us a Dog Whistle Factory – as “dog whistle” was the liberal media’s term dujour to ascribe racism to things that were not inherently racist whenever a conservative spoke – and that he was handing them out to each of us. After his death, I said, “Andrew said he bought us all a Dog Whistle Factory. But when he left us, we found it full of swords.”
The main lesson I learned from Andrew Breitbart was: Don’t let the media & the left control the narrative!
Yet that is what I’ve been seeing in recent days. The Bob Woodward story is an example. Woodward wrote a column in the Washington Post detailing Obama’s lies about the sequestration, and proving that despite what the President has been saying, his White House is responsible for this plan. Yet when Woodward released the information that he had been vaguely threatened by a White House Aide, the whole story became all about Woodward. People on our side fell into the media trap of talking about Woodward, and not his story about Obama’s blatant lies!
I see another example of this when we start using the President’s and the media’s terms regarding budget battles: “revenues” & “closing loopholes”. We are losing the narrative on the vocabulary! “Revenues” equals TAX INCREASES! Why aren’t we pounding this message home! “Closing loopholes” really means taking away deductions, like the Mortgage Interest deduction, that middle class families use to reduce their tax bill. We should be screaming this information from every rooftop! We should never let a media story that uses these terms to go unchallenged!
It drives me batty to see this happening. I leave you with Andrew’s 2012 CPAC speech -
Karl Rove, the GOP Operative who has joined together with several rich GOP donors & declared war on the Tea Party, is busted lying about his involvement in Reagan’s campaign. He was actually actively working against Ronald Reagan in 1980.
This comes on the heels of his gaffe – repeatedly calling Sarah Steelman “Deb Steelman”, and his spouting off about the MO Senate race with little inside knowledge of said race. Read Dana Loesch’s blog for some inside insight to the MO race – essentially, the party in MO had crowned it’s favorite, and when the people did NOT agree, the GOP took it’s money and went home, refusing to help Akin at all, despite the fact that he was heavily favored to win prior to opening his mouth and inserting his foot all the way to his kneecap – something that could have been avoided if the GOP had helped him prep for some of the stupidity headed his way.
Personally, I think Rove is a pathetic little man who is upset that he can’t control the Tea Party. He’s mad that his man lost, again, and instead of looking to see what he did wrong, he’s going to pin the blame on the media’s favorite goat, the Tea Party.
