Intelligence Funding; TARP Audit; Gov't Racism Against Whites; Push for Energy Bill; Felons For Al Franken Coming to Michigan

Fox News reports: The Obama administration is bracing for the first in a series of Washington Post articles said to focus in unprecedented detail on the government's spending on intelligence contractors. The intelligence community is warning that the article could blow the cover of contract companies doing top-secret work for the government. At the same time, a senior administration official acknowledged that the kind of wasteful spending expected to be spotlighted in the series is "troubling" and something the administration is trying to address. [A Washington Post article reports that Some 854,000 people - or nearly 1 1/2 times the number of people who live in Washington - have top-secret security clearance.
[An audit of TARP funding reveals the following, from the New York Times:]  President Obama’s auto task force pressed General Motors and Chrysler to close scores of dealerships without adequately considering the jobs that would be lost or having a firm idea of the cost savings that would be achieved, an audit of the process has concluded.  [Can people finally begin to understand what the term "empty suit" means?]
Two weeks ago, the White House informed the state of Oklahoma that it could expect no federal aid to help deal with the damage caused by recent flooding. There was no explanation, no expression of sympathy, no offer of alternatives.
Consider these actions. If anyone during the 2008 had implied, or even speculated, that Obama was capable of anything of the sort, he'd have been dismissed as a demagogue, a hater, even a lunatic. But today, after his abandonment of the state of Tennessee (also wracked by flooding), his betrayal of the Georgians, his pulling the rug out from under the Poles and Czechs, his dragging and cold response to the Gulf blowout, his insults to the UK, the GOP, the Supreme Court, Benjamin Netanyahu, and the Dalai Lama, it scarcely raises a shrug. That's Obama. That's how he acts -- with arrogance, superciliousness, and indifference. We can search the entire roster of American presidents, and we will not find a match. This is not the behavior of an elected chief executive; it's the conduct of a divine right monarch, and a pretty inadequate one as well.

Conduct of this sort inevitably produces a reaction -- contempt from equals, and hatred from victims. Obama has created a lot of victims in eighteen months of power, and that reaction has been growing.
Andrew Brietbart of Big Government: released a video of Shirley Sherrod, the USDA Georgia director of Rural Development, speaking at the NAACP Freedom Fund dinner in Georgia.
In her meandering speech to what appears to be an all-black audience, this federally appointed executive bureaucrat lays out in stark detail, that her federal duties are managed through the prism of race and class distinctions.
[...]Sherrod describes how she racially discriminates against a white farmer. She describes how she is torn over how much she will choose to help him. And, she admits that she doesn’t do everything she can for him, because he is white. Eventually, her basic humanity informs that this white man is poor and needs help. But she decides that he should get help from “one of his own kind”. She refers him to a white lawyer.

Due to the NEW media (that is Fox, ect, and we the people), the truth got out and here is the upshot, from Fox News : The Agriculture Department announced Monday, shortly after published its initial report on the video, that Sherrod had resigned.
"There is zero tolerance for discrimination at USDA, and I strongly condemn any act of discrimination against any person," Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said in a written statement.
[Next up, before Democrats go home to "meet" their constituency, and more importantly, before they lose their seats in the November elections, comes news that an Energy bill is to be pushed thru the House.] The Hill reports: time is of the essence, as Reid has pledged to begin the energy debate the week of July 26. That would give Democrats two weeks to pass energy reform and confirm Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan by the August recess, scheduled to begin Aug. 6.

The recess is scheduled to last five weeks, giving lawmakers facing tough reelections — including Reid — plenty of time to campaign. The House is scheduled to begin its recess on July 30.

Reid has warned that he may cut a week off the Senate recess if the legislative pace slows.
Google reports:  Earlier this week, Fox News reported that convicted felons voting illegally may have swung the pivotal 2008 Minnesota Senate race in favor of Al Franken.  It appears Democratic Secretary of State Mark Ritchie did little to combat this fraudulent activity.  
Mr. Ritchie took office in 2006 thanks in part to the significant financial backing of The Secretary of State Project, a liberal advocacy group funded largely by billionaire George Soros.  Mr. Soros' aim is to capture Secretary of State seats in swing states, establishing an electoral advantage for future elections.  Unfortunately, his plan worked to perfection in Minnesota, as Mr. Ritchie helped deliver the Democrat's 60th vote in the U.S. Senate.

Now, Mr. Soros has turned his attention to Michigan.  His group has made electing Michigan Democrat Jocelyn Benson one of its top priorities.

  1. Thanks, and we need to defeat Benson with her support from Soros...corruption abounds around him...
