The Genesis Code; All women at trial should wear higabs?; AFL-CIO and Obama; Jimmy Hoffa's army; Chicagoans told to dress down during NATO meeting; Obesity regulations by government; Bartering with Netanyahu; Labor donates $1.4 billion to Obama reelection; Overturning stand-your-ground; Prison inmate to get one delegate at convention, getting 40% of vote against Obama in W. Virginia

"Apparently, I’m supposed to be more outraged by what Mitt Romney does with his money than by what Barack Obama does with mine."   [I don't know who said this, but it is a good one.  Thanks, Bill!]

It's not typical that movie producers share negative reviews.  But I thought I would pass this recent review of The Genesis Code along:
"This kind of trash just makes you want to slap your forehead, and ask yourself why people are so stupid. I wish we could just ship all the crazy religious people into space so they cannot pollute the world with their nonsense."
I'm guessing this guy is pulling his hair out when he sees that The Genesis Code recently hit #1 on Faith and Spirituality, #1 in Kids and Family, and in the Top Ten of all movie DVDs on Liberals and atheists hate The Genesis Code. I suppose that is no surprise. Close-minded lefties hate our pro faith, family, and intellectual freedom message.
[At the Gitmo Terrorist Trial] Cheryl Bormann, counsel for 9-11 defendant Walid bin Attash, attended the arraignment Saturday dressed in a hijab, apparently because her client insisted on it. Bormann requested that the court order other women to follow her example so that the defendants do not have to avert their eyes “for fear of committing a sin under their faith.”
It looks like Barack Obama has had discussions with every radical on earth, including the Russians, about his second term. It’s just too bad he can’t be honest about it with the American people. AFL-CIO chief Richard Trumka said Sunday on C-SPAN he’s had “conversations” with President Obama on the agenda that would drive his second term.
President Obama himself has declined to address controversial remarks from supporters in the past. In September 2011, Teamsters president Jimmy Hoffa introduced the president at a union rally, saying: “This is your army…Let’s take these son of a bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong [sic]” –referring to Republicans. Obama took the stage shortly after Hoffa’s remarks, but did not address the provocative rhetoric.
Following the controversial event, senior White House advisor David Plouffe said in a radio interview that politicians should not be responsible for everything said at their events, or act as “speech police.”
The Obama campaign’s response to the Romney supporter’s remarks came hours after senior campaign spokesman David Axelrod likened former Bush adviser Karl Rove and libertarian philanthropists Charles and David Koch, and their respective Super PACs, to “contract killers.”
Workers at some Chicago office towers are being encouraged to dress down to avoid being targeted by protesters during the meeting of world leaders May 20 and 21. Safety procedures in some high-rises include the recommendation that employees set aside suits, ties and anything with corporate logos.
Tenants in the office building at 1 E. Wacker Drive received a memo encouraging them to stay away from wearing suits, urging workers to "look like a protester." A spokeswoman for Los Angeles-based CBRE Inc., which manages the building, declined to comment on any NATO security measures.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- America's obesity epidemic is so deeply rooted that it will take dramatic and systemic measures - from overhauling farm policies and zoning laws to, possibly, introducing a soda tax - to fix it, the influential Institute of Medicine said on Tuesday.
In an ambitious 478-page report, the IOM refutes the idea that obesity is largely the result of a lack of willpower on the part of individuals. Instead, it embraces policy proposals that have met with stiff resistance from the food industry and lawmakers, arguing that multiple strategies will be needed to make the U.S. environment less "obesogenic."
In early March,the Israeli newspaper Maariv reported that Barack Obama had offered Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government the latest in “bunker busting bombs” along with advanced refueling planes in exchange for the PM’s promise to delay any attack against Iranian nuclear facilities until 2013. It was a clear attempt by Obama to bribe the nation of Israel into refraining from war until AFTER the November election.-

Labor Union Officials Poured $1.4 Billion into 2010 Election Cycle  

[Keep this in mind when someone tells you that the evil Koch Brothers donated $100 million to Republican coffers.]


House Democrats said Tuesday they will offer an amendment to push to overturn stand-your-ground self-defense laws in states like Florida.
The amendment, which would withhold some grants from states that have such laws, will come as part of the House's debate on the Commerce Department spending bill.
Barack Obama was not the only Democrat on the ballot on Tuesday in West Virginia’s Democratic Presidential Primary. Keith Judd — also known as Inmate No. 11593-051 at the Federal Correctional Institution in Texarkana, Texas — was running against him.
Judd, who is serving out a 17.5 year sentence for extortion, currently has received 40 percent of the vote, with 83 percent of precincts reporting, according to The Associated Press. Obama currently has received 60 percent of the vote.
Obama’s lack of popularity in West Virginia has been well-documented. The state’s governor Earl Ray Tomblin and it’s junior senator Joe Manchin, both Democrats, have kept their distance from the president.
A further potential embarrassment for the Democrats, as The Charleston Gazette reports, Judd only needs 15 percent of the vote — which, indeed, it looks like he has accomplished — in order to be entitled to have at least one delegate represent him at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. this summer.
