Steven Crowder Tries to ‘Redistribute’ Children’s Candy in Hilarious ‘Obama-Style’ Halloween Prank

This is wonderful. What a great way to demonstrate Socialism…

“Hey, dude that’s not cool,” one kid says. “It’s not fun to take people’s candy…That’s my candy, I worked hard for it.”

“But you had more than him,” Crowder replies.

‘That’s OK.”

US Army Prepares for Full-Rate AH-64E Production

We shall see how many of these get added to the Apache Helicopter due to Barry’s attacks on our defense industry… but, this is interesting…

Recently, the Army deployed the ground-fire acquisition system (GFAS) with one battalion. The system allows for pilots to see where hostile fire is originating and slews the sight system to that point of origin. This allows for the crew to view the hostiles and engage if needed. The system includes two infrared sensors mounted on the wingtips of the Apache; they are optimized to detect a specific wavelength of energy emitted when a bullet exists a muzzle, optimizing it against small-arms fire, though it also will detect missile firings.

Quarter-billion-dollar stimulus grant creates just 400 jobs – Washington Times

I talked about this company in my article “Talking Bain Capital with a Union Democrat.” So, here are some interesting facts about what happens when a president tries to centrally manage an economy. Obama, the socialist way… here it is:

Battery maker A123 Systems vowed thousands of new jobs when it received a nearly quarter-billion-dollar stimulus grant in late 2009, but federal job-tracking figures show only a few hundred positions were created before the company joined a growing list of federally backed energy businesses that ended in bankruptcy.

The latest quarterly report on file with a federal stimulus tracking database shows just seven positions created through the grant from April to June this year. Previous quarters’ job reports contained anywhere from a handful of positions created to more than 100 new jobs.

But even when the quarterly reports are combined, a total of 408 new positions were reported under the stimulus program since 2009, amounting to more than $300,000 spent for each new job reported.

China is stealing our technology with the help of our universities.

This is worth looking at. Even if Romney wins, this must be addressed. And quickly!

American Universities and Multi-national Corporations have forgotten that they are Americans. They are bleeding America of its technologic advantage over China for short term profits. The University of Michigan has more than 2,500 Chinese students and scholars mostly studying in technologic fields such as engineering, science and mathematics. Most of these students will eventually return to China with American technology. These Chinese students are taking opportunities away from American students who would like an opportunity for a University of Michigan education. The University of Michigan is making joint research agreements with China that allow Chinese scientist access to our newest technologies. American Multi-national Corporations are making deals to sell goods in China that require “offsets” requirements to set up partnerships with Chinese companies that teach Chinese businesses how to copy our technology and steal our jobs.

Boeing’s Missile Can Take Out Electronic Targets

Good news for us. Wonder how Barry allowed this program to progress…

The missile, known as CHAMP (Counter-electronics High-powered Advanced Missile Project), fired a burst of High Powered Microwaves at the building, successfully knocking out the electronic systems and computers, and even taking out the television cameras recording the test.

Guilford Co. voters say ballot cast for Romney came up Obama on machine | MyFOX8.com – Greensboro, High-Point, Winston-Salem News & weather from WGHP Television FOX8

This does not surprise me. The left will lie, cheat, and steal to win this election. And you won’t see a bit of this covered by the leftist media.

One of the voters, Sher Coromalis, says she cast her ballot for Governor Mitt Romney, but every time she entered her vote the machine defaulted to President Obama.

“I was so upset that this could happen,” said Coromalis.

This is a pretty mighty attack on my article at American Thinker about the Obamacare decision. Lester Jackson refers to me 14 times…

Here’s a pull quote:

Instead of responding to this, attorney Cameron Reddy, an apologist for apologist Franck, further illustrates lawyerly sophistry. In the words of early judicial review critic John Gibson, he “take[s] for grantedthe very thing to be proved,” baldly denying the contradiction is what it is.

First, Reddy changes the subject. Instead of answering the 2012 joint dissent, he turns to what Justice Story wrote — in 1833 — to justify Roberts’ assertion that those who don’t like ObamaCare should rely on elections. In essence, Reddy appeals to the authority of a long-dead justice to justify the impropriety of a very much alive chief justice.

Query how the analysis of the preeminent constitutional scholar of the 19th century (Joseph Story) is inapposite to the analysis of current constitutional adjudication.

This will be fun.

The consequences of Obama’s love of Islam

This is an excellent explanation for Obama’s actions. It’s all about his faith and hatred of colonial powers… And Karl Marx.

That brings us to the current debacle in Libya, which can only be understood if we understand Obama’s worldview on the “the Muslim World.” Like the so-called “moderate” Muslims, Obama insists Islam has nothing to do with terrorism and blames previous American foreign policy and Israel for Islamic anger. Obama narrowed down the problem of Islamism to al-Qaida while embracing other Islamic groups as moderate, such as the Muslim Brotherhood. By doing that Obama dismissed the long history of terror of the Muslim Brotherhood, which gave birth to al-Qaida and hundreds of other terror groups. Nothing in Obama’s world is the fault of Islam, and that is why he ordered the Fort Hood massacre to be classified as workplace violence and not Islamic terrorism.

Obama believes that he uniquely understands the Muslim world and will bring a new era of peace with Islam, at least during his administration. There are also strong rumors in Egypt that when Obama met with the Egyptian foreign minister, he confided in him that he was a Muslim and that he would help the Islamic cause in America after he passed his health-care bill.

But as president of the United States, Obama was in a quagmire between protecting American lives and being loyal to Islam and appeasing his Islamic friends. Placing American Marines in U.S. consulates in dangerous terror-infested Islamic countries was going to jeopardize a bloody confrontation between American security and Islamists. That was also going to discredit Obama’s theory of Islam having nothing to do with terrorism. Also, if Obama were to confront militarily Muslim jihadists in Islamic countries, his whole theory that he has brought a new page in American/Islamic relations would fall apart and he would be no different from his predecessors, Bush or Reagan.

That explains why the demands for American security instead of Libyan security by U.S. Ambassador Stevens went unanswered. Obama did not want to deal with the possibility that American Marines would shoot at Muslim attackers to save American lives.

Pentagon will not label Fort Hood shootings as terrorist attack

Obama’s the Commander In Chief. The Pentagon does what he tells it to do.

Already facing intense scrutiny for its shifting narrative about the assault on the U.S. Consulate in Libya, the Pentagon now says it will not reclassify the Fort Hood shootings as a terrorist attack over concern about biasing the case against the gunman

Obama Supporters Continue Threats To Riot, Assassinate Romney

Neither will you see this coverage on Huff Po…

The left gets away with this because we have allowed them to infiltrate and dominate our media and education systems.

Despite the issue garnering a significant amount of media interest as well as the attention of the Secret Service, Obama supporters continued their threats to riot and assassinate Mitt Romney if Obama loses in the aftermath of last night’s presidential debate.

As we reported last week, Twitter has been flooded recently with violent comments from Obama supporters. The increase in volume of the comments seemed to coincide with Romney’s poll numbers edging higher against Obama.

Not only have Obama voters been making open threats that they will riot and cause mayhem, they have also been caught making direct threats to assassinate Mitt Romney, prompting the Secret Service to announce that it was “aware” of the threats and would “conduct appropriate follow up if necessary.”

Despite the fact that the media reported extensively on threats made against Obama prior to the 2008 election, their silence on the threats made against Romney has been deafening. Indeed, the act of a few old guys hanging up empty chairs in reference to Clint Eastwood’s RNC speech garnered substantially more coverage and concern from the press compared to hundreds if not thousands of tweets threatening violence against Mitt Romney.

Americans who simply display political signs expressing opposition to Obama’s policies have been treated as potential violent threats by authorities in the past, and yet not a single Twitter user has faced retribution for making direct and sometimes graphic death threats against Romney.

Leftists routinely cry foul and attempt to demonize conservatives as violent extremists whenever online rhetoric gets heated, and yet when their own engage in even worse conduct, their behavior is absolved and the media is disinterested.

Before the Secret Service announced they were investigating the threats, Obama front group Think Progressattempted to imply that the whole story was somehow a racist contrivance dreamed up by the Drudge Report and Infowars.

Here are just a selection of tweets from Obama supporters threatening riots and violence during and after last night’s foreign policy debate. There are too many to reprint in full.

If the Secret Service does plan on following this up, they are going to be very busy indeed.

Chavez, Castro, Putin: Four more years!

In the law we call this res ipsa loquitur (the thing speaks for itself). Really, what more needs be said? Pure enemies want Barry re-elected.

Truly, the world is upside down.

The latest [dictator] to publicly announce his support for the commander-in-chief’s reelection bid was Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez, who this week assured he’d vote for Obama if he were from the United States. The America-bashing strongman made the announcement on state-owned television, saying “Obama is a good guy” and that if Obama was from Caracas, he’d surely return the favor by voting for Chavez.

Romney Has Best Gallup Tracking Poll Numbers Since 1968 – Washington Times

I don’t even want to think about this…

Mitt Romney continues to out-poll every winning presidential challenger since 1968.

The latest Gallup daily tracking poll of likely voters has Mr. Romney leading Barack Obama by seven points, 52% to 45%. Mr. Romney’s total is greater than Richard Nixon’s 44% at this point in the race in 1968, Jimmy Carter’s 49% in 1976, Ronald Reagan’s hard to believe 39% in 1980 (Carter was ahead with 45%), George H. W. Bush’s 50% in 1988, and Bill Clinton’s 40% in 1992. In 2000 and 2008 George W. Bush and Barack Obama both tracked at a within-error 51%.

The Gallup numbers have come under criticism from Obama supporters for their supposed inaccuracy, but the oldest established polling organization has done well in predicting the last three elections. In 2000, the final Gallup likely voter poll showed a neck and neck race, 47/45, which turned out to be a 50/50 outcome. In 2004 Gallup had the Bush/Kerry race at 49/47 and the result was 50/48. And in 2008 Gallup’s final likely voter poll had Mr. Obama at 53% which was right on the money. Whether Mr. Romney’s tracking numbers will hold over the next few weeks remains to be seen but right now he is on a better trajectory than any presidential challenger in the last 40+ years.

Maybe the Justice Department will want to investigate.

Fluke takes stage in Reno to just ten Obamabots

There are some encouraging signs… But, I’m not allowing myself to feel optimistic. Not yet. This is still a gangster administration that has one goal: Bring the USA down to size.

And voting fraud will be rampant.

Sandra Fluke, the woman at the center of a media firestorm earlier this year after Rush Limbaugh called her a “slut,” spoke Saturday in front of about 10 people at the Sak ‘N Save in north Reno.

Talking Bain Capital with a Union Democrat

My latest article appears at Clashdaily.com. Here is a teaser…

“John,” I said, “have you worked in the venture capital industry?”

He just looked at me. And blinked.

“John, have you ever been invested into by a venture capital company?”

I think he shook his head — but I wasn’t sure.

“John, have you ever been an executive at a venture capital company and therefore charged with the duty to maximize the wealth of your fund by maximizing the value of your investees?”

His mouth opened, but nothing audible came out.

“Look,” I said, with a softened tone, “I’ve been in all three positions.” (This was only a slight lie, as I wasn’t invested into, but I represented two companies that were.) I continued, “No venture capital company on earth would ever succeed — would ever be sought out by hundreds of companies — by doing what you claim Romney did with Bain. It just doesn’t work that way.”
