Dale over at OutOfOrderBlog (Daletoons) has done it again with his newest creation about Nancy Pelosi and the swamp known as Washington, D.C.
Sean Hannity interviewed Marco Rubio today about Charlie Crist’s shift to indie, his lack of integrity in regards to the lies he told two weeks ago on FoxNews Sunday when Chris Wallace asked him point blank if he would run as an indie or as a republican.
There is no time for surfing when the sharks have entered the water. Sen. Inouye is dumping money into the DCCC in order to defeat Charles Djou’s bid for Neil Abercrombie’s congressional seat. Keep in mind that Inouye is 85 years old, he started his House congressional career in 1958, and moved up to a continuous Senate career starting in 1962. (I personally think that 52 years without a real job is OBSCENE!)
Mr. Inouye has $3.2 million in cash in his war chest and he really wants Hawaii’s entitlement state to continue with his backing of Colleen Hanabusa. Sen. Inouye is an old war horse that is not beneath getting bailout money for the bank he started and keeps his wealth in. All of that being said, remember that every single seat is a “National Referendum”, and as such, you should donate to candidates that are trying to break the elitist monopoly. If you can contribute to Mr. Djou’s campaign, go here. We will take our country back one seat at a time.
Sen. Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii) has transferred $100,000 to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, money that will be used to bash the GOP candidate in next month’s House special election in the Aloha State.
Inouye’s action complicates the behind-the-scenes struggle between Inouye and House Democratic leaders, including Speaker Nancy Pelosi, over which Democratic candidate will get DCCC support in the May 22 election.
Inouye and Sen. Daniel Akaka (D-Hawaii) are backing Hawaii Senate President Colleen Hanabusa, but the DCCC is flirting with throwing its public backing to former Rep. Ed Case, who alienated the Hawaii Democratic establishment by waging an unsuccessful primary challenge to Akaka in 2006.
Case and Hanabusa are vying for the vacant seat of former Democratic Rep. Neil Abercrombie, who stepped down Feb. 28 to run for governor.
With the prospect of two prominent Democrats splitting the party vote — a scenario that would potentially enable Republican Honolulu City Councilman Charles Djou to capture the heavily Democratic seat — party sources say national Democrats have offered quiet organizational support to Case. That effort has coincided with the circulation of opposition research within Washington targeting Hanabusa.
But Inouye’s contribution to the DCCC is part of a broader push from the powerful senior Hawaii senator and Appropriations Committee chairman to sway the party from backing Case, whom he has sharply criticized in the past.
The contribution marked Inouye’s first donation to the DCCC since at least 1998, according to an analysis conducted by the Center for Responsive Politics.
A spokesman for Inouye’s 2010 reelection campaign confirmed the $150,000 donation to the DCCC, but he did not comment on the use of the money for an anti-Djou ad blitz.
“The senator’s campaign has made a contribution to the DCCC for its use to support its programs,” said Dale Snape, Inouye’s finance director. “With respect to the upcoming election in Hawaii, while Republicans in Hawaii and Washington are very good at saying no, they have offered no innovative solutions and shown no ability to lead Hawaii forward during these difficult economic times. Sen. Inouye supports state Senate President Colleen Hanabusa as the best person for the job.”
Inouye’s campaign had more than $3.2 million in cash on hand as of Dec. 31, according to his latest disclosure report with the Federal Election Commission.
Akaka said that, like Inouye, he is planning to make a contribution to the DCCC, although he has only $86,000 in cash in his campaign account, according to his FEC report.
“It’s on the record that Sen. Inouye and I are supporting Hanabusa,” Akaka told POLITICO. “She has a great background.”
Jennifer Crider, a DCCC spokeswoman, said the committee “appreciates Sen. Inouye’s support, as well as everything he is doing in Hawaii to defeat Charles Djou.”
An interesting tidbit about Colleen Hanabusa:
In November 1998, Colleen Hanabusa was elected as the State Senator from the 21st District. The 21st District includes Wai’anae, where her family has resided for four generations, as well as Ko ‘Olina, Kahe Point, Nanakuli, Ma’ili, Makaha, Makua and Ka’ena Point.
One of Hanabusa’s first acts upon being elected was to organize Senators to vote against second term confirmation of Hawaii Attorney General Margery Bronster. Bronster was investigating extensive corruption organized by Kamehameha Schools trustees. Hanabusa did this in concert with reputed Hawaii mafia boss Larry Mehau and with two of the five “Broken Trust” trustees. In his memoir, Hawaii’s then-Governor Ben Cayetano explians (p432-433:
“…Hanabusa had other reasons to oppose Bronster’s confirmation. (KSBE Trustee) Henry Peters and his influential mother, Hoaliku Drake, who had organized public demonstrations in opposition to Bronster’s confirmation, were both supporters who lived in her district. Politically, that alone would have been reason enough for her to vote against (Bronster). but, as the Honolulu Advertiser would later disclose, Hanabusa had a close relationship with developer Jeff Stone, whose sister was married to Bishop Estate trustee Dickie Wong and who, along with Peters and Wong had been indicted by a grand jury convened by Bronster. As the attorney general’s investigation would later reveal, prior to the confirmation hearing, Hanabusa had met privately with Larry Mehau and Wong. When confronted by a reporter, Hanabusa confirmed that the meeting had taken place, but, in a remarkable lapse of memory, she could not remember if Bronster’s confirmation had been discussed.” “Cayetano: Hanabusa’s Broken Trust connections lead to Ko Olina”, Hawaii Free Press, 2009, http://www.hawaiifreepress.com/main/ArticlesMain/tabid/56/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/978/Cayetano-Hanabusas-Broken-Trust-connections-lead-to-Ko-Olina.aspx </ref>
Remember what I wrote about every race now being a “National Referendum”? Charles has an uphill battle very similar to other races we have seen lately. He needs all the contributions he can gather.
Charles Djou’s MoneyWave is taking pledges for the Tsunami on April 21st.
ABC affiliate, Denver Channel 7News has used, what can only be described as, inflammatory footage of a Restore America Plan supporter and linked it to the Guardians of the Free Republics.
YouTuber, Jonah70757 is shown with an AR15 in footage from Channel 7 News here, (hurry before they yank the video), with a title graphic “Guardians of the free republics supporter”. Is it possible that the inference is that somehow Jonah is a crazy extremist willing to use violence to make the plan happen as put forward by the feds through the FBI (see NY Times story below)? Listen to Jonah’s response on the video and decide for yourselves.
Many have been wondering if the Restore America Plan is real. To be honest, I still have doubts, but I am beginning to think that this government-labeled, ‘extremist group’ may just have a leg to stand on when I watch the feds, through their media lackeys, try to control the story and then attempt to put the genie back in the bottle through a visual smear campaign linking regular Americans who own guns with the Guardians. Does being an American who owns guns and supports the plan make one a violent extremist? Apparently so, as does reading the Constitution, breathing, and tying your shoes according to Janet and the other Janet.
From the NY Times (4.2.2010).
Federal officials said that at least 30 governors received the threatening letters this week. State officials in Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Nevada, New York, Utah and Virginia said they were examining the letters. Officials in several states said security for governors had been increased.
On its Web site, gotfr.com, the Guardians of the Free Republics sets forth a plan to “restore America.” It describes the plan as “a bold achievable strategy for behind-the-scenes peaceful reconstruction of the de jure institutions of government without controversy, violence or civil war.” (emphasis mine)
The federal government told state police officials that the group could provoke violence by others because its members “advocate for their views through the use, support or facilitation of violence or illegal conduct.” (emphasis mine)
Oh really? I have yet to speak with a member or a supporter that believes we should march into DC with guns, and the fed’s statement is directly contradicted by the Guardians statement “…without controversy, violence, or civil war.”
I would really like to know when the FBI is going to start doing their jobs and follow the money trail of the $9 Trillion that the Federal Reserve “lost”, and the revenue stream Obamacare has created with no product to show for it.
Once again, anyone that supports the Constitution and the de jure government that it created is labeled an extremist by the corporate government now in place. The left and the right should be together on this issue.
I have contacted Jonah70757, and am waiting a response.
Below is the ‘threatening’ letter that the governors are receiving, and an update from one of the Guardians, Sam Kennedy.
Restore America Plan – Sam Kennedy 3/3/10 Status (Should actually be 4/3/10)
To the blessed listeners of TAKE NO PRISONERS worldwide,
Well, I guess we got their attention this time.
As you probably know, The Restore America Plan has made the mainstream media including the lead story on the Fox News Network’s 6 o clock news (Special Report with Bret Baier), CNN MSN, NBC and ABC. Reporters around the country are angling for information, and the worst they can say is: The FBI and Department of Homeland Security are not aware of any immediate or credible threats of violence as part of this group’s plan. Big story there. The FBI has been in the field most courteously around the country and we have opened many new channels of communication. I made a surprise drop-in visit yesterday to a local FBI interview of a grand juror and had the pleasure of sharing information from the horse’s mouth, so to speak, and furthering our lines of communication. All in a day’s work for those of us who are committed to freeing our children before the world degrades into economic and political Armageddon.
I have a big surprise for our listeners tomorrow night (Sunday, April 3) on TAKE NO PRISONERS (8 PM ET, Republic Broadcasting Network). It’s not something I can just summarize here, but I can promise an immensely enjoyable and satisfying experience especially for members of the Guardians of the Free Republics, our enormous global audience, and the many new listeners we expect to be tuning in across the country. I invite everyone to join me.
I will also have the pleasure of sharing some of the more substantive elements of my interview of the FBI agent and State officer yesterday. I consider every opportunity to commune with an attorney, judge, prosecutor, law enforcement or bureaucrat a blessing from the Lord.
And finally, I will share some of the truth of the world around us of which new listeners may not be aware. For instance, I will have the pleasure of showing you the actual source of the 700B “bailout” funds.
TAKE NO PRISONERS can be heard on FM and shortwave stations around the world, and on the internet via Shoutcast or directly through the network website at:
every Sunday night on the unique voice of freedom, the Republic Broadcasting Network at 8 PM ET, 7 PM CT, 6 PM MT and 5 PM PT. Hope to see you then.
Thank you for reading and would you kindly consider CIRCULATING THIS EMAIL FAR AND WIDE?
Peace and Grace to all,

Rep. Darrell Issa, the top Republican on the House Oversight committee, told CBS News Wednesday that he will call for a special prosecutor to investigate the White House if it does not address Rep. Joe Sestak’s claim that he was offered a federal job in exchange for dropping out of the Pennsylvania Senate primary.
“If the public doesn’t receive a satisfactory answer, the next step would be to call for a special prosecutor, which is well within the statute,” Issa (pictured) told Hotsheet.
The California Republican has been pushing for the White House to provide details of conversations between Sestak and administration officials in the wake of Sestak’s comment during a radio interview last month that he was offered a high-ranking administration job in exchange for dropping his primary challenge against Sen. Arlen Specter.
Asked if that job was secretary of the Navy, Sestak declined to comment. His press secretary told CBS News that the lawmaker stands by his original statement that he was offered the job in exchange for an administration post. Sestak did not drop out of the race.
On March 10th, Issa sent a letter to White House lawyer Robert Bauer asking for details about communications between Sestak and the White House. In the letter, he pointed to statutes he said could have been violated if Sestak was offered a quid pro quo arrangement in which he would be given an administration job in exchange for leaving the race.

Desperate times call for drastic measures. Case in point; rushing the largest un-Constitutional expansion of government in the history of the United States on a rare Saturday vote. Are any of us surprised? Nope.
Nancy Pelosi does not have the votes in the house yet to pass her gargantuan 2,000 page monstrosity that very few people have actually been able to read in it’s entirety…so…it is time to pull out all the stops and descend even farther into the pit of backroom arm-twisting, media spin, Chicago style thuggery, and whatever else passes for statesmanship these days in Washington, D.C.
Does one single democrat realize how much their party is degrading the reputations of the Presidency, the House, the Senate, and America in general? Does one single democrat realize how much their tantrums, name-calling, and sneaky backroom maneuvering is traumatizing the entire nation, and more than likely, giving our allies in the world a moment of pause? Does it make it morally right for the democrats to plunge into the depths and follow the lead of squishy republicans with no moral compass just because Bush and the republicans did so earlier?
All of this speaks to the corruption and greed that has taken over OUR government when Nancy can call a special vote with the implications that ‘it’s legal’, even if it is not the ‘morally right’ thing to do. I know many thoughtful Americans that take longer than the congress has taken with this healthcare manifesto to make decisions on choices that are much less life altering.
Aren’t you glad that Nancy, lacking grace, statesmanship, intelligence, and the maturity of thought and character to do what is right, is third in line for what is left of the presidency right after Joe Biden who believes that we have to spend trillions of dollars to keep from going bankrupt? If anybody really looks at the people in charge, one would have to say America is definitely in decline with the amount of spoiled brats running around D.C. doing whatever they please without even a “by your leave” to the American People. See Alan Grayson’s juvenile antics if you need a refresher.
Fortunately, for us, there is a “Healthcare Intervention” about to happen today on the Capitol Steps at Noon with Rep. Michele Bachmann, Jon Voight, Mark Levin, various Republicans and, (hopefully thousands), highly upset Americans to stop THE DEFINING MOMENT when our country is catapulted from capitalism to socialism. That is, if Nancy does not pull some special brand of ‘Speaker Of The House’ thuggery and change the security protocols outside the Capitol and BLOCK AMERICANS from their OWN HOUSE. One can hope that Nancy does not do something THAT lacking in little gray cells.
But I digress….
House leaders put in motion the machinery to hold a rare Saturday vote on the most far-reaching expansion of the health-care system in more than 40 years.
Even so, they were still locking down support Wednesday among a handful of holdouts, with the biggest bloc dissatisfied with the measure’s handling of abortion.
Many Democrats said passing the measure has become even more crucial politically after Republicans won governor’s races in Virginia and New Jersey this week. So Democratic whips worked their rank and file, while House leaders tried to secure a momentum-building endorsement from the AARP, the nation’s largest association of people over 50. President Obama, meanwhile, laid plans to visit Capitol Hill on Thursday or Friday to address House Democrats in a final push for his signature domestic initiative.
House Republicans are united in opposition to the majority’s health bill, so to pass the measure, Democrats will need at least 218 votes from their 258-member caucus. That group grew by two in Tuesday’s elections: While some Democrats bemoaned the loss of the governor’s mansions, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) cheerfully prepared to swear in newly elected Democrats from New York and California, both of whom have pledged to support the health bill.
“From our standpoint, we picked up votes,” Pelosi said.
House leaders said that they were confident of reaching their goal in time for a Saturday debate on the most significant changes to the nation’s health-care system since the creation of Medicare in 1965. They released 42 pages of amendments to the 1,990-page health package unveiled last week, a move that started the clock ticking on their pledge to make the legislation publicly available for 72 hours before lawmakers are asked to pass judgment.
“We are now in the final stage of moving this critical bill through the House,” Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (D-Md.) said in a statement. “Our members have worked very hard on this legislation, and I believe that as a result, we have a strong product that will lower costs and provide greater health care stability for all Americans.”
Unless, of course, you live in Hawaii.
This morning I watched Rep. Steve King (R-IA) blast ACORN in the House, asking for a full investigation of ACORN and all of their affiliates. Rep. King also had some questions for the pResident, and his connections to ACORN. I am currently trying to find vid of his speech. The following article is just one facet of what is being uncovered for the rest of America that does not know what we know about ACORN.
Documents released by a Senate Republican on Thursday show that leaders of the ACORN community organizing network transferred several million dollars in charitable and government money meant for the poor to arms of the group that have political and sometimes profit-making missions.
ACORN’s tax-exempt groups and allied organizations, long a target of conservative ire, used more than half their charitable and public money in 2006 to pay other ACORN affiliates, according to an analysis by the tax staff of Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa).
On Thursday, Grassley called the transactions a “big shell game” and said ACORN donors may be surprised by how the liberal group known for helping the poor obtain housing and health care was spending their money. He urged the Internal Revenue Service to take a closer look.
According to the Grassley report, charities “are being used to raise monies which are then funneled to other charities or to other organizations for purposes other than what the donor may have intended. . . . Dollars raised for charitable [purposes] appear to be used for impermissible lobbing and political activity.”
Make sure to go over and read the whole article.
We have seen the MSM respond to the information that Rahm Emanuel was the transition person who was speaking with Governor Blagojevich by suppressing the information and yanking the vids from YouTube. My suggestion to all you folks is to get two programs if you do not already have them.
1. Gadwin Printscreen 4.3 This program will allow you to take screenshots of any page that you are viewing and I suggest you obtain this program for all those newspaper articles and website that will eventually get scrubbed by The One’s transition team.
2. Real Player This program will allow you to download any video that you are viewing to your harddrive. I suggest you do this to every video that negatively reflects on The One and his team.
Go NOW and download these programs before you view the video below. You will want to be able to put this video on your harddrive before the powers that be try to shut it down here.
