(Video) Infamous Don’t Tase Me Bro Video – Why John Kerry Didn’t Get Elected

(Video) Why John Kerry Didn’t Get Elected – Don’t Tase Me Bro

It never ceases to amaze me how old white guys can be so clueless. Dumbfounded and speechless, John Kerry stands by in awkward silence and disbelief as he allows some University of Florida student to get tased just because he doesn’t want to answer his question. We originally did a story on the tasing that you can read, but every time I see this I am more and more amazed at how out of touch politicians are.

Suffice it to say, it’s probably a good thing you didn’t get elected John.

See How Obama Slaps Syria Around

Obama Gives Syria A Smackdown – See How

With the expiration date of the national emergency with Syria coming up, President Obama is forced to continue to block exports to Syria based on their actions in the international community. Although the Whitehouse seems to concede that Syria has done some work in trying to stem the flow of terrorists into Iraq, more needs to be done. See the President’s executive order below which describes the details.

Notice Continuing the National Emergency with Respect to Syria.

NOTICE

– – – – – – –

CONTINUATION OF THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY WITH RESPECT

TO THE ACTIONS OF THE GOVERNMENT OF SYRIA

On May 11, 2004, pursuant to his authority under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, 50 U.S.C.

1701-1706, and the Syria Accountability and Lebanese Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2003, Public Law 108-175, the President issued Executive Order 13338, in which he declared a national emergency with respect to the actions of the Government of Syria. To deal with this national emergency, Executive Order 13338 authorized the blocking of property of certain persons and prohibited the exportation or re-exportation of certain goods to Syria. On April 25, 2006, and February 13, 2008, the President issued Executive Order 13399 and Executive Order 13460, respectively, to take additional steps with respect to this national emergency.

The President took these actions to deal with the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States constituted by the actions of the Government of Syria in supporting

terrorism, maintaining its then existing occupation of Lebanon, pursuing weapons of mass destruction and missile programs, and undermining U.S. and international efforts with respect to the stabilization and reconstruction of Iraq.

While the Syrian government has made some progress in suppressing networks of foreign fighters bound for Iraq, its actions and policies, including continuing support for terrorist organizations and pursuit of weapons of mass destruction and missile programs, continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States. As a result, the national emergency declared on May 11, 2004, and the measures adopted on that date, on April 25, 2006, in Executive Order 13399, and on February 13, 2008, in Executive Order 13460, to deal with that emergency must continue in effect beyond May 11, 2010. Therefore, in

accordance with section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. 1622(d), I am continuing for 1 year the national emergency declared with respect to certain actions of the Government of Syria. The United States will consider changes in the policies and actions of the Government of Syria in determining whether to continue or terminate this national emergency in the future and would welcome progress by the Government of Syria on these matters.

This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and transmitted to the Congress.

BARACK OBAMA

THE WHITE HOUSE,

May 3, 2010.

Does Obama Really Follow Justin Bieber on Twitter?

Hmm, I Wonder Who Obama Follows On Twitter-Justin Bieber Maybe?

Yesterday we ran a story about how you could follow the Whitehouse and Obama on Twitter. Today we’re going to take that one step further. Did you ever wonder who Obama follows on Twitter? You would think that would be a good list to get on. Well, as you’d expect, he follows groups like the IRS, the U.S. Embassy, the Secretary of the Navy, the Army, Veteran Affairs. But there are also a few individuals he follows. Like who?

Well, as you would expect, he Obama follows his right hand man Press Secretary Bobby Gibbs. I still don’t get why people call him Robert Gibbs because he definitely strikes me as a Bobby. He also follows a guy by the name of BillBurton44 who is some sort of deputy secretary that likes to get on John McCain for not being more fluent with computers. Reading Burton’s tweets was kind of like watching paint dry so I wouldn’t recommend following him. However, something on his Twitter account said it was an official Whitehouse Twitter page and as such, the tweets could be officially archived. So that might be kind of cool if you could get one of your tweets officially archived. Wait, doesn’t Google archive all your information anyway? Oh well…

And if that isn’t weird enough, he also follows KateatState i.e. Kate Jacobs Stanton. Exactly, that’s what I was thinking–who is she? Well, get this–she used to work for Google as a moderator, whatever that is–yes you read that correctly. Obama appointed her to a newly created position–one of those 4 million jobs created–of Director of Citizen Participation. What, are your serious? Are you kidding me? I’m betting she makes over 6 figures a year and I’m not sure that’s the best use of taxpayer money. Actually, don’t worry about your tax dollars being wasted here. Katie is busy tweeting about important political stuff like Maddow attending bar at the Washing correspondent get together after party termed “nedrprom”. Do I detect a secret crush here? I know aman crush is a bromance–what’s a woman crush–a worance? That kinda sounds like Scooby Doo–but I digress. Katie Stanton was so busy doing her new government job tweeting all day long she forgot to attend her son’s play at school–imagine that. Twitter followers were asked if she should buy him ice cream or Bakugan (video game). Yah, that’s a no brainer. She further mused that missing the play was OK if she could get Justin Bieber’s autograph at the nerdprom–I’m seriously not kidding here–these are your hard-earned tax dollars at work.

So while originally I planned on just writing about Whitehouse followers, this whole nerdprom thing has me a little upset. Among the invitees to nerprom were Jon Bon Jovi and Jay Leno as well as the aforementioned teen throb Justin Bieber. At this point now, I don’t think anything would surprise me. You have to give Obama credit though, he is definitely catering to pop stars and Hollywood. He knows that by getting their support, you get the support of the masses that follow them.

I just hope the next time we come under terrorist attack that the counsel of such wise strategists like Leno and Bieber will prove to have been productive.

A few days ago America’s News Now ran a story on how Wall Street reform is really just a political concept to appease voters. In this video, Ron Paul questions Ben Bernanke on some of the Fed’s decisions and raises some odd allegations. Nonetheless, this underscores the cozy relation ship between those in power in Washington and Wall Street.

Why is the Senate Putting the Breaks On Wall Street Reform? The Answer May Surprise You

Why Is The Senate Putting The Brakes On Wall Street Reform?

Statement by the President on Financial Reform

“I am deeply disappointed that Senate Republicans voted in a block against allowing a public debate on Wall Street reform to begin. Some of these Senators may believe that this obstruction is a good political strategy, and others may see delay as an opportunity to take this debate behind closed doors, where financial industry lobbyists can water down reform or kill it altogether. But the American people can’t afford that. A lack of consumer protections and a lack of accountability on Wall Street nearly brought our economy to its knees, and helped cause the pain that has left millions of Americans without jobs and without homes. The reform that both parties have been working on for a year would prevent a crisis like this from happening again, and I urge the Senate to get back to work and put the interests of the country ahead of party.”

So what do you think the solution is to Wall Street reform? Put your comments below…

(Video) Senator Lindsey Graham Gets Outed By Alipac William Gheen

(Video) Is Senator Lindsey Graham Gay?

The Republican Operative reports on Lindsey Graham

Anti Illegals group wants Graham to come out of the closet:

The national border security organization known as Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) is officially calling for US Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) to make his homosexual lifestyle public knowledge in the interest of political integrity and national security.

ALIPAC’s President, William Gheen, addressed Graham’s homosexuality in a speech before thousands of Tea Party supporters on Saturday, April 17, 2010, in Greenville South Carolina where Lindsey Graham has offices. A brief clip of Gheen’s speech, which is out of proper context, has already gone viral on YouTube and been reported by Keith Olberman on MSNBC, Metro Weekly, The Guardian, and Metro Weeklywithout proper permissions or attributions.

‘US Senator Lindsey Graham is gay and while many people in South Carolina and Washington DC know that, the general public and Graham’s constituents do not,’ said William Gheen President of ALIPAC. ‘I personally do not care about Graham’s private life, but in this situation his desire to keep this a secret may explain why he is doing a lot of political dirty work for others who have the power to reveal his secrets. Senator Graham needs to come out of the closet inside that log cabin so the public can rest assured he is not being manipulated with his secret.’

Senator Lindsey Graham is the lone Republican in the US Senate trying to lobby other Republicans to sponsor a Comprehensive Immigration Reform Amnesty bill, which would legalize millions of illegal immigrants and turn them into competitive workers and voters, when the United States has over 25 million under or unemployed workers. ALIPAC considers Graham’s support for Comprehensive Amnesty legislation to be against the wishes of 80% of his constituents and against the best interests of the American people.

Senator Graham served in the US Military, which adopted a policy of ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’ regarding homosexuality during the Clinton administration. Prior to the policy change, homosexuality was considered a vulnerability to our national security because those with access to classified information and strategic resources were often blackmailed by foreign powers.

‘Barney Frank has more integrity and bravery than Senator Lindsey Graham right now,’ said William Gheen of ALIPAC. ‘When you are a US Senator, the public deserves to know what might influence your decisions. Obama and Napolitano know about Senator Graham, now it is time for the rest of the country to know.’

ALIPAC, one of America’s largest groups fighting against illegal immigration and amnesty, is releasing this full version of William Gheen’s speech containing the request for Senator Graham to confess his homosexuality to the public at this link….
