‘New York Times’ Spiked Obama Donor Story

From an article in Philadelphia’s The Bulletin, testimony of the Obama Campaign coordinating with ACORN and editors at the New York Times having knowledge of it, but killing last October it would have been a “a game changer.”

Quotes from the article,

“A lawyer involved with legal action against Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) told a House Judiciary subcommittee on March 19 The New York Times had killed a story in October that would have shown a close link between ACORN, Project Vote and the Obama campaign because it would have been a “a game changer.””

“During her testimony, Ms. Heidelbaugh said Ms. Moncrief had told her The New York Times articles stopped when she revealed that the Obama presidential campaign had sent its maxed-out donor list to ACORN’s Washington, D.C. office.

Ms. Moncrief told Ms. Heidelbaugh the campaign had asked her and her boss to “reach out to the maxed-out donors and solicit donations from them for Get Out the Vote efforts to be run by ACORN.””

“ACORN has issued statements claiming that Ms. Moncrief is merely a disgruntled former worker.” (naturally)

U.S. Rep. James Sensenbrenner, R-Wisc. said,

“If true, The New York Times is showing once again that it is a not an impartial observer of the political scene. If they want to be a mouthpiece for the Democratic Party, they should put Barack Obama approves of this in their newspaper.”

Seems to me, one of the earliest actions taken by both the Bolsheviks and Nazis was to control the media, have them sympathetic to their “cause.”

Bill Maher Cheapshots American Troops

How despicable that he says of our Troops,

“Forget about bringing the troops home from Iraq. Can we bring them home from World War II? Can you believe that in 2009, we still have 50,000 troops in Germany, and 30,000 troops in Japan? At some point, their people are going to have to learn to rape themselves!”

Maher is a braindead liberal, but this is cheap and low, even for him.

Please join me and contact HBO’s Realtime with Bill Maher demanding he be fired for this outrageous disparagement of our Brave men and women in the Military.

The White House Auto Repair Shop is Now Open! 1-202-456-1111

I’ve gone over the Obama Administration’s plan to take over GM & Chrysler, and, based on his own words today, these are the things he’s said/promised/done:

  • Sacked Rick Waggoner and several board members at GM (no sackings at unions)
  • Government has given GM another 60 days to become what the government wants it to be
  • Given Chrysler 30 days to merge with Fiat in order to get $6 billion carrot
  • Promised GM and Chrysler they’ll go into reorg bankruptcy for ‘fresh start’
  • Blames ‘lack of leadership’ in Detroit and Washington but doesn’t blame regulation
  • Claims the government has a better business plan for Detroit–a business plan which includes making cars government wants them to make
  • Claims the government will move faster than companies to get GM & Chrysler viable
  • Government will back your car warranty and repair needs for companies’ cars
  • Government will ‘accelerate’ its car buying program
  • Government will give sales and excise tax rebates to those who bought cars from Feb 16 till end of year
  • Government will buy your older car and give you money to buy a new one


Government has swallowed GM and Chrysler whole and using ‘saving the auto industry’ to facilitate its plan to force the industry into exclusively making cars only the government wants us to have. They’ll kill the industry. There’s never a there there with Obama; it’s always a where there.
Oh, and where’s the exit strategy for government to get out of the car business? There isn’t one.

Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans

Rees Lloyd on why it’s important to remember this day.















By Act of Congress two years ago, March 30 has been designated”Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day.”

This is belated recognition by Congress, and hopefully by the nation, that veterans of the Vietnam War should be recognized and thanked for their service and sacrifice in a war that John Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, and Richard Nixon — and Congress– in each administration, sent them to fight.

It was a war started in earnest by the so-called “best and brightest” of John F. Kennedy’s administration, ironically idealized as “Camelot,” the Bay of Pigs debacle in Cuba and the Vietnam War lies later exposed by the Pentagon Papers notwithstanding; escalated by Lyndon Johnson’s utterly false claim of attack in the Tonkin Gulf (“Lyndon lied, children died”?); and ended by Richard Nixon, who first ended the giant anti-war demonstrations allegedly based upon the protestors’ moral outrage at the war, by ending the draft.

Vietnam Veterans were the first veterans to return home to be shunned and reviled rather than welcomed and thanked for service in a war the nation told them it was necessary to fight. Americans turned against the war — as Ho Chi Minh and the North Vietnamese Communist generals predicted.

But in turning against the War, many Americans also turned on the American men and women who served honorably in defense of their country in performance of a duty each took an oath to fulfill.

The Vietnam Veteran was the first veteran to be instructed not to war his or her uniform when returning home. A disgrace.

Almost all who served did so honorably. Any disgrace of the Vietnam War did not result from them, but from those who sent them to war, and those of their fellow Americans who not only turned their backs on them, but reviled them as “war criminals,” “baby killers.”

An example of such disgraceful vilification of the the Vietnam Veteran is the despicable John Kerry. Kerry served on a “swift boat” in Vietnam on active duty as a member of the U.S. Navy Reserves after four deferments and after being denied a fifth deferment. A politician even in Vietnam, he called himself “the second JFK from Massachusetts” and predicted he, too, would be president of the U.S. He carried his own video camera and had himself photographed in staged derring-do, to be used in his later political career.

Kerry first gained national attention by offering what has been proved to be false testimony before Congress of alleged “war crimes” by those with whom he served in Vietnam. When challenged by swift vote veterans to provide proof, Kerry could offer no cognizable proof of his charges. Nonetheless, the anti-Vietnam War media loved him, and he was so successful in his false propaganda that his picture was later prominently featured along with that of Jane Fonda in the “Hall of Heroes Museum” of the North Vietnamese communists in Hanoi honoring those who helped them achieve what they call their “victory” over the United States in the Vietnam War. Kerry is the only nominee for President of the U.S. to be so honored.

Probably at any other time in American history, John Kerry would have been shunned, reviled, and disgraced forever by his false, unproved and improvable accusations of war crimes he claimed to have witnessed fellow veterans committing.

But, in the culture of the Sick 60’s that carried on to infect the 70’s, Kerry’s self-serving degradation of American veterans of Vietnam led not to disgrace but, rather, made him a leading figure of the Democrat Party, which made him Democrat Senator from Massachusetts and later Democrat Nominee for President of the United States.

Instead of Kerr y being disgraced, it was the ordinary soldier, sailor, Marine, Air Force or Coast Guard member, who served in Vietnam who was shunned, reviled, disgraced, for doing honorably what the nation set him or her to do in defense of the nation. It was as if the nation wanted to expiate its own sense of shame, even sense of “sin,” by vilifying those whom the nation sent to a war in Vietnam.

Now, decades later, the Congress repents, and calls the nation to repent for its shameful shaming of the Vietnam veteran by establishing the Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day to be annually observed on March 30.

There will be observances in many areas over the weekend and through Monday, March 28-30, mostly by veterans. Please join in the belated “Welcome Home.” Give to the Vietnam Veterans the honor they are do, for they served with honor. Call your local American Legion 20 Post, VFW Post, or other veteran’s organization to find out how you can help honor those who deserve to be honored

As for me, I am a Vietnam-era veteran but, like two-thirds in service in those years, I was never deployed and served where they sent me; in my case, stateside.

And, in recognition of “Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day,” allow me to salute and thank all of my comrade veterans of the Vietnam-era, particularly those who served in Vietnam, but all who responded to duty, whatever our personal views on the Vietnam War, when our country called us to serve in its defense. At the risk of getting sued by the ACLU, may I say, God bless you all.

McCain: Public Financing of Campaigns is D E A D

Now if he could have just drawn that obvious conclusion BEFORE the election we might not be going down this socialistic path that we’re on now. Oh, sure, he would have done some stupid things, like publicly funded campaigns at the expense of our first amendment rights, but maybe he wouldn’t have tried to destroy capitalism. I’m just thinkin….
The Washington Times has the story here.

Community Organizer Takes Over Auto Industry

Open Thread Monday.
What do you think about the government taking over the boardroom of the auto execs but not the boardrooms of the auto unions?
My guess is that only Ford will survive—because it hasn’t been taken over by the government.
This ought to be an object lesson to anyone who wants welfare from the government: If you take the money the government OWNS you. (check out this video–must be having a one teleprompter day)
