Obamas Whitewater: Political Vendetta, Persecuting John Edwards


John Edwards
From Denny:  Yeah, like this salacious trial is truly in the public interest.  More like it's in Team Obama's interest of eliminating possible political contenders as well as settling old political scores.

Axelrod, now Obama's "senior adviser" and handler,  is still smarting from when Edwards fired him from his 2004 presidential campaign and has been chasing revenge ever since.  It was foolish of Obama to give Axelrod his wish because now there will be blow back upon Obama, both political and criminal.

Oh, and did I mention how the lobbyists despise John Edwards for his campaign stand to eliminate them?  So, they decided to eliminate Edwards by making sure he is the object of such enduring public scorn and excessive humiliation to ensure he will not rise again as a national politician to thwart them.  Remember, Edwards is starting up a public interest law firm to fight lobbyists that have a stranglehold on our government and is no darling of the lobbyist community.

Good News: New Jobs Now Tout TVs Made In America

From Denny:  With 31 million new jobs required to get this economy back on track it's good news to finally see an electronics manufacturer come back to America.  It's easily been at least a couple of decades since American TV manufacturers closed shop and either moved overseas for cheaper labor or, worse, went out of business.

Someone new is willing to take the gamble and hire American workers once again.  These larger TVs are assembled by American workers in hard hit Detroit, Michigan.  They just started up production in March and are competitive with China.

Women: Pentagon Rapists Decide If Rapes Prosecuted

Women on Top: How Real Life Has Changed Women'...


From Denny:  This week two new lawsuits against the military were brought concerning sexual assaults in the military academies.  It was necessary because the women were unable to get investigations into the crimes.  They were also wrongfully discharged as retaliation for reporting their rapes.

This past year sexual assault reports in the military have increased by 60 percent.  Sec. of Defense Leon Panetta reads that as women are more comfortable and trusting to make those reports.  Well, that's one optimistic way to view it.

One one court martial for all those reports

Of the 65 reports, only one resulted in a court martial.  It makes you wonder if only one out of the 65 was truly investigated so the Pentagon threw out this bone to the women's groups to look like they were achieving something significant.  And did I mention the White House declared April as Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month?

Rapists rise in command structure and remain

What is most annoying is how these rapists are allowed to remain in the academies, graduate and then rise in the chain of command all the way up to the Pentagon while the women's careers are destroyed as much as their lives.

How about the hard reality of what this increased percentage of reporting really means?  What is really going on here is that finally there is a sizable crack in the military command.  Some of them, a few good men, have developed a conscience and chose to allow the reports up the chain of command to be seen instead of buried and long forgotten or, worse, ripped up reports and immediately dismissed as unimportant.

Good News: Rush Limbaugh Kicked Off Philadelphia Station

From Denny:  It appears some conservatives have awakened to getting rid of Rush Limbaugh.  OK, actually it's really about boycotts and their profits they don't want to lose. Those darn liberals were just too effective at putting pressure on the advertisers. :)

One of the largest radio markets in the country is Philadelphia, the "city of brotherly love."  The dominant conservative talk radio station there, WPHT, an AM station, has jettisoned "The Rush Limbaugh Show" in favor of a native son, "The Michael Smerconish Show."  Normally, Smerconish's show is time-delayed but with the removal of Limbaugh, Smerconish can now broadcast live in his home market.

You might recognize Smerconish from his guest hosting of Chris Matthews' Hardball show.  I like the guy immensely as he is of agile mind and a balanced moderate opinion, you know, most of America.  Matthews could retire and Smerconish would make a great sequel.

Secret Service Scandal: How Deep Rooted Is The Lax Security Culture?

Cover of "In the President's Secret Servi...
Cover via Amazon
From Denny:  The Secret Service has everyone talking and millions of people angry at their latest sloppy performance on an advance trip to secure President Obama's trip to Colombia.  Did taxpayers pay for the "business and accommodations" expenses of hiring prostitutes for these agents?

To date, as more facts come out, there were now at least 21 high priced prostitutes taken to the taxpayer paid hotel rooms.  Eleven of the agents were suspended during investigation and their security clearances yanked.

There are between 10 - 20 additional military involved in this stupidity.  That's, of course, if more information does not appear as this story seems to be growing in scope.  Who knows just how many of these mostly married men were involved?  Can you imagine being one of the wives who had to hear this news?

From Obama, Tax Returns: Check Out How Your Personal Tax Dollars Spent On National Budget

From Denny:  Today Prez Obama and VP Biden (and spouses) released their IRS tax returns.  Obama's was 48 pages long with an adjusted gross income of about $790,000.  Hey, those book sales add up over three years.  The Obamas also gave $172,000 to charities, about 22 percent of their income, much of it from a children's book.

Can you imagine paying $162,000 in taxes?  The President did.  The GE Corporation - and far too many other Wall Street folks - didn't even pay that much.  What's wrong with that picture?  Check out the links to their names above to go directly to the pdf files online for the Obamas and the Bidens if you want to see the actual returns and read the details.

Jon Stewart Mocks Outrageous Arizona School Board Fearing Mexican-American Studies

Jon Stewart

From Denny:  The Daily Show may be a comedy show but Jon Stewart utilizes what is happening right here in America as material.  You can't make up this stuff.  It's unbelievable.  How do these incredibly insensitive - and more importantly, really stupid - people rise to such high positions of authority where they affect the lives of millions of people?  It's scary in its implications.

It's difficult to believe this superintendent actually has a doctorate in education.  Are you sure this guy didn't lie on his resume or buy his degree from some online scam site?  It's like listening to my Republican Louisiana Senator David Vitter who claims to be a Rhodes scholar and a lawyer who graduated Ivy League schools.  He can barely put a sentence together and lacks rational thinking just like this fool.

Watch as comic Al Madrigal baits this guy about Mexican-American studies now banned in Arizona's Tucson school district.  The reasons this superintendent gives are incredible, all based only upon hearsay. Hearsay - can you believe it? This guy who heads their school board never even bothered to talk to the teachers of the program or read any of the textbooks.  And he calls himself an educator?  Unbelievable.

Jon Stewart Interviews Losing Lawyer On Supreme Court Strip Search Case

From Denny:  Check out Jon Stewart in this unusual interview of the lawyer who lost the most important case for the world.  If you get arrested for a speeding ticket, jaywalking, a bell too quiet on your bicycle and other minor offences, then you all get arrested and strip searched by the police as a matter of regular procedure. Yes, America has entered the world of the outrageous.

America, as you know it, no longer exists as we are now officially a police state.  Americans have lost the majority of our rights - like civil rights, privacy rights, and just about everything else they could take.  All our rights have slowly eroded since 9/11 out of the fear of terrorism.

Police now possess sweeping, authoritarian, unlimited, absolute powers to do whatever they like to you, your spouse, your family, your children, your friends because it is all at the discretion of the police.  If a cop is having a bad day then expect yours to get a lot worse too because there is nothing to stop him.

Obama and Supreme Court Order Strip Searches For Minor Offences Too, Impeach Them All

From Denny:  The Supreme Court, in its demented wisdom, decided to put all of America on notice.  We all can be strip searched for no good reason.  America is now under lock down and an official police state.  Worried about safety in the jail system, the "Justices" have now effectively jailed all of America.

Over 700,000 people get arrested for minor offences in America every year.  For what did they get strip searched?  Get this:  riding a bike with an inaudible bell, walking a dog off a leash or driving with a noisy muffler.

A nun was strip searched for trespassing during an anti-war demonstration, if you drive without a license, failing to use a turn signal are all incidents where this strip search procedure has been employed.  Talk about outrageous.

Poems From A Spiritual Heart: The Long Road, An Easter Poem

Road to nowhere Poems From A Spiritual Heart: The Long Road, An Easter Poem: From Denny:  An Easter poem about how sacrifice can deliver unexpected pleasant surprises.  With global protests against oppressive governments, like the Arab Spring in the Middle East, and against greedy Big Business like the Occupy Protests in the West, it is evident there is great need in the world.

When economic times and society get hard pressed what is the one thing you can do about all the wrong going on around you?  You can be a friend.  You can slow down, even come to a full stop on your own life, and look around to see what is happening in your vicinity.

To address the needs, think of offering some real friendship and mentor those around you.  You will be surprised how many people will tell you how glad they are you took time for them as they thought no one would ever notice how much they were struggling.  It could be at work, at church, your neighborhood, the local grocery store, anywhere.  Offering the fact that you care is often the most appreciated.

Rush Limbaugh: Liar, Liar, Pants On Fire About Advertisers Status

Rush Limbaugh Cartoon by Ian D. Marsden of mar...
Rush Limbaugh Cartoon by Ian D. Marsden of marsdencartoons.com (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
From Denny:  I'm with Jon Stewart.  Rush Limbaugh just keeps on giving the comedy material, serving it up on a silver platter. His latest gambit is to now challenge the logic about his advertisers' performance since they left his show or if they stayed.

Normal people call it irrational logic, you know, an oxymoron attempt by Rush.  Sometimes, this guy is just too much fun to lampoon.  It's as silly as the research scientists who decided after lengthy study that, "People die six months before or six months after their birthdays."  That stupid study must have been underwritten by Limbaugh.

What he is arguing now is that the advertisers who stayed with his show are increasing their sales but those advertisers who spurned him because of the Slutgate Controversy are failing miserably.  What an insufferable self-centered ego.  He's full of bluster, that's for sure.

Does America's favorite BS Artist know how stupid that sounds?  Better yet, does he offer any proof of his claims?  Of course not.  And that is always the point about Rush Limbaugh.  He never possesses any real hard data or facts to back up his baseless claims for whatever he is "discussing" via monologue.

Dennys Global Politics: Syria: How Long Can Assad Last? What Are World Leaders Doing To End Killings?

Assad Democracy!

Dennys Global Politics: Syria: How Long Can Assad Last? What Are World Leaders Doing To End Killings?: From Denny:  Will world leaders be successful in ending the carnage in Syria as the dictator continues to massacre his own people?  Will the Arab nations get serious and quit sitting on the sidelines, always expecting America to fix it with our blood and money?  How much patience do the American people have for yet another war in the Middle East?

International envoy and former United Nations chief, Kofi Annan, announced today that Assad has agreed to end hostilities by April 10th by pulling out troops and tanks from the big cities.  Of course, few in the international world believe Assad will live up to his agreement as he is known for breaking previous promises.  World leaders now believe that the Annan six-point peace plan has been violated and are working to develop additional plans to curb Assad beside diplomatic courses and economic sanctions.
