Top 140 All Time Top Political Donors

Posted by iusbvision on March 14, 2011

And look at what party gets most of the fat cat money? Looking out for the little guy my rear.

So do these groups contribute massive funds so that the politicians will faithfully follow the Constitution? No, most of them want favors, and most favors have questionable ethics and constitutionality.

The only answer is to strip politicians of some power to do these favors.

Dana Perino: Interesting How Obama Says Things That Are So Quickly Proven False

Posted by iusbvision on March 14, 2011

Obama takes credit for global oil production going up, but this is in spite of him not because of him. domestic Oil production is down 13% since he was elected, he has instituted an illegal offshore drilling ban which he is in contempt of court for. Thousands have lost their jobs. But look at what Obama says below.

Obama knows he can tell the fattest whoppers imaginable and the elite media will cover for him. Luckily we have blogs, talk radio and a Fox News that is willing to tell both sides.

Via Gateway Pundit:

President Obama told the American public on Friday:

So any notion that my administration has shut down oil production might make for a good political sound bite, but it doesn’t match up with reality. We are encouraging offshore exploration and production.

It was a horrible lie.
The American Petroleum Institute responded to the president:

The Obama administration continues to delay or defer action on developing our domestic resources of oil and natural gas at every turn.

“The trend is alarming. The administration has postponed lease sales in offshore areas. It has cancelled lease sales in onshore federal lands. It has extended permitting timelines for current leases and added unnecessary regulatory burdens. It has chosen inaction on essential energy projects that would create jobs, drive economic growth, and boost federal revenues.

“The administration is well on its way toward creating higher gasoline prices for Americans.

“To get more oil and gas, we need more access. Placing more government lands and waters off-limits and forcing companies to focus on areas that may show little promise even if already under lease will not solve our energy challenges.

Dana Perino is right.
It is frightening that the Obama Administration is so willing to openly lie to the American public.

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s Response to the Savage Murder of the Fogel Family

Posted by iusbvision on March 14, 2011

 

Israel demands CNN apology over attack coverage

Via Ynet News.

American network reporters present tendentious coverage of Saturday’s gruesome murder in Itamar, question fact it was a terrorist attack. Israel’s Government Press Office ‘dumbfounded, astonished’

Israel is demanding an apology from CNN over its coverage of Saturday’s terrorist attack in Itamar claiming it was “tendentious and deceptive.” Government Press Office director Oren Helman sent a letter to CNN’s Bureau Chief Kevin Flower saying he was astonished at the network’s coverage of the ruthless attack.

A CNN website report avoided describing the event as a terror attack, noting that the Israel Defense Forces consider it an act of terrorism. “Only you decided to use the term terrorist attack in quotation marks, as if this were not necessarily the case,” Helman wrote. “There is a limit to the extent of objectivity regarding such a horrific deed.”

The CNN report stated: “Five members of an Israeli family were killed in the West Bank early Saturday morning in what the Israeli military is calling a ‘terror attack.'”

The report went on to say: “According to a military spokeswoman, an intruder entered the Israeli settlement of Itamar near the northern West Bank city of Nablus around 1 am, made his way into a family home and killed two parents and their three children.”

The IDF’s official statement noted that forces were searching for a “terrorist” and not an “intruder” as the CNN report noted. The terrorist was also referred to as an “assailant” later in the report. There was no mention of the possibility this was the act of a Palestinian terrorist.

The BBC also referred to the terrorist as an intruder in its report. “The family – including three children – were stabbed to death by an intruder who broke into their home, Israeli media reported,” the BBC reported Saturday. Readers might deduce the family members died in a failed burglary attempt.

The BBC went further and evinced its stance on Israel’s policy in the territories. “Nearly half a million Jews live in more than 100 settlements built since Israel’s 1967 occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem,” the report stated. “They are held to be illegal under international law, although Israel disputes this.”

Human Events Interviews Donald Trump

Posted by iusbvision on March 14, 2011

A few observations on Donald if I may. Are conservatives are open to a Trump candidacy, respectfully I believe it is the wrong time for that question. What we need to be open to right now is ideas and anyone talking about a run had better have some good ones.

If Trump runs win or lose he will at least bring some good ideas to the table.

He talks about how many others have ripped us off, there is truth to this, but we, also as well as he, needs to take a long look at ourselves. We have to be honest with ourselves and realize that we have made some poor choices in our leaders; such as how our government helped to orchestrate this latest mortgage/banking crisis. Pointing fingers at others may be warranted, but it is also easy to do.

I am eager to see more.
