Van Jones calls for an American Fall

From RealClear Politics:

Van Jones: “We are going to build a progressive counterbalance to the tea party. Eighty percent of Americans agree with everything that you say on this show, but we have no voice. We know that jobs are more important, and this phony, made-up deficit stuff they talk about. We know that people who have done well in America should do well by America and start paying America back in the form of more fair taxes.

“People who benefited from the bailouts and from the tax breaks should start paying America back. They’re doing great.

“Everybody else is suffering. That is 80 percent of the majority. And we’re going to now have a voice.

“And you’re going to see an American fall, an American autumn, just like we saw the Arab spring. You can see it right now with these young people on Wall Street. Hold onto your hats. We’re going to have an October offensive to take back the American dream and to rescue America’s middle class.”

I’ll tell you something – this guy thinks that he can call for rioting and looting and Americans will support his cause? This is the fastest way to move Americans away.  This might be acceptable in England or Greece, but we don’t tolerate this kind of behavior in America.

For one thing, Americans have guns.

Class Warfare by Victor Davis Hanson

The battleground of class warfare has moved from the streets of yesteryear to the TV studio green room, the golf links or the seaside hotel retreat. And when we really do see street violence — looting in Britain or flash-mobbing in America — angry youths usually target high-end electronics stores and fashion outlets, not food markets or bookstores. They organize on social networks from their laptops and cell phones, not from soup kitchens, bread lines or dank basements. Victor Davis Hanson

Your tax dollars at work – and not in Fast and Furious

H/t to my best friend in GA:

You are now complicit in the murder of a US border agent

How do you feel about that? Our tax dollars paid for these guns to walk over the border and then used in murders, most specifically the murder of border agent Brian Terry.

There will be a special prosecutor and Holder will be gone – either by his own resignation (to protect TheOne) or TheOne will throw him under the bus. But Holder is the worst AG in my memory and he has to be held accountable. This is his department and they are his underlings.

The whole plan here was to discredit 2nd Amendment supporters. Does anyone remember Mrs. Brady’s comment after meeting with TheOne? To paraphrase Mrs. Brady (whose husband James Brady was severely wounded in the Reagan assassination attempt) Obama told her that “we’re going to change these laws but it’s slow going and we’re working UNDER THE RADAR.”

The only  thing they’ve accomplished is shaming and disgracing our nation.

The future of non-human spying and warfare

One afternoon last fall at Fort Benning, Ga., two model-size planes took off, climbed to 800 and 1,000 feet, and began criss-crossing the military base in search of an orange, green and blue tarp.

The automated, unpiloted planes worked on their own, with no human guidance, no hand on any control.

After 20 minutes, one of the aircraft, carrying a computer that processed images from an onboard camera, zeroed in on the tarp and contacted the second plane, which flew nearby and used its own sensors to examine the colorful object. Then one of the aircraft signaled to an unmanned car on the ground so it could take a final, close-up look.

Target confirmed.

This article raises all kinds of questions about the future of warfare and the security and privacy of Americans or any citizens whose government develops these robotic drones.

We use them on our Mexican border to monitor illegal drug trade and no one minds that. In fact, it’s a good idea in areas of man-power and safety, for instance.  We’re using them in Pakistan and other middle eastern nations, with bombs on board.

But the idea that these robotic drones can work in packs and communicate to each other regarding targets to monitor, for instance American citizens, is frightening.  It’s bad enough that we have closed circuit television on us at an increasingly high rate but this is even beyond that invasion.  The scientific community is developing spy drones that are the size of insects.  Gee that’s great – if we’re spying on Americas enemies but what if they are used to spy on citizens?

Or just as bad – what if a hostile foreign government uses them inside our borders, to spy on us?

Outrageous that this was broadcast

What have we become when mocking people like this  passes as entertainment? I’ll grant that this didn’t happen in America but there’s nothing to prevent it from happening here.  Why this was ever allowed to  be aired, it beyond me.

I feel dirty even posting this youtube vid, but I think there’s a larger message.

Obviously this poor lady has issues that need to be addressed and airing this on national television does not help her.  The producers used extremely poor judgement.

Love this ad!

I’ve always driven Fords or Mercs, but after this ObamaAutoBailout, it was a given that I’d never drive anything but Ford. I feel the same way this guys does:

The joke that is AttackWatch!

Revenge of the parody!

You knew it was gonna happen and this one is just the beginning, I bet.



ObamaCare Glitch Could Unravel Law | Michael F. Cannon | Daily Podcast | Cato Institute

This is really interesting and if you’re like me, you’ll have to listen to it a couple times to get it.Especially the part about the IRS. But this may be our way out of ObamaCare.
