Ann Coulter At CPAC, 2011 (Full Video)

OMG! Ann Coulter hammers the left and Janet Napolitano, among other topics, in her unbelievably snarky way that will sure to make readers laugh out loud. Enjoy!

Q & A Session:

Patriot Act Extension Voted Down; Entrenched Republicans Plan To Bring It Back To The Floor

Patriot Act Extension Voted Down; Entrenched Republicans Plan To Bring It Back To The Floor

It’s good to bitchslap Janet Napolitano and the Obama administration from time to time.  Now it’s time to call Boehner, Cantor and McCarthy!

The march against the ever-growing federal government continues as democrats and eight House republican freshmen (of a total of 26 republicans) voted against extending the Patriot Act.  Halle-freakin-lujah!!!!

To keep the issue in perspective, Obama wants to extend this bill through 2013, and entrenched House republicans only want to extend it through this year.

Want to find common ground with your fellow Americans?  Here is an issue that both left and right can agree on; the government being able to warrantlessly tap phones, secretly rifle through bank accounts and safety deposit boxes, hold people indefinitely without charging them, etc., etc., etc., is NOT the American way.  Does anybody actually think that Janet Napolitano, the DHS and TSA really have our best interests at heart?

The tide is turning.

From Politico:

Rank-and-file reject Patriot Act

House Republicans Tuesday night got a harsh introduction to the majority, as more than two dozen rank-and-file GOP lawmakers voted against reauthorizing the Patriot Act.

(snip)

There was no sign that the leadership saw the setbacks coming. The Patriot Act was moved to the floor under suspension of the rules — a provision that requires two-thirds majority (290 votes) to pass and is often used for noncontroversial legislation. After holding the vote open well past the 15-minute window, it failed 277 to 148 with five Republicans and four Democrats not voting.

Republican leaders will bring the bill back to the floor under a rule, where it will almost certainly secure the 218-vote threshold.

Speaker John Boehner’s (R-Ohio) office had no comment on the trade bill or Patriot Act failure. He did not vote, which is somewhat of a tradition for the speaker. Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and McCarthy voted for the Patriot Act extension.

The Patriot Act has long been a contentious issue on Capitol Hill. It was passed shortly after Sept. 11 to give the government expanded surveillance powers, while breaking down barriers between the CIA, FBI and other intelligence agencies.

But many — ranging from liberals like Rep. Dennis Kucinich (Ohio), to libertarians like Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) — have long expressed concerns over the sweeping breadth of the legislation. Kucinich called Tuesday’s vote a “significant defeat,” adding that it will “fuel opposition” to the measure nationwide.

Indeed, many members were concerned about Patriot Act provisions that would allow the government to access medical and business records, GOP sources said.

And a handful of the no-votes were freshmen who felt completely uninformed by their leadership. Rep. Todd Rokita (R-Ind.), who voted for the bill, said he “didn’t know anything about (the vote) until today.”

(snip)

Twenty-six Republicans voted against the Patriot Act extension, but only eight were freshmen — Reps. Justin Amash (Mich.), Mike Fitzpatrick (Pa.), Chris Gibson (N.Y.), Randy Hultgren (Ill.), Raul Labrador (Idaho), Bobby Schilling (Ill.), Dave Schweikert (Ariz.) and Rob Woodall (Ga.).

Rep. Connie Mack (R-Fla.) voted against the extension, while his wife, Rep. Mary Bono Mack (R-Calif.), voted for it.

Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), Reps. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), Steve Israel (N.Y.) and Henry Cuellar (Texas) all voted for the bill. Committee leaders including Reps. Norm Dicks (D-Wash.), Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.) and Adam Smith (D-Wash.) also voted for the bill. Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Judiciary Committee Ranking Democrat John Conyers (Mich.) voted against extending the bill.

Altogether, 122 Democrats voted no, and 67 voted yes. Republican votes to back the bill numbered 210.

It’s Time To Boycott Wal-Mart And Wipe That Grin Off The Smiley Face

It’s Time To Boycott Wal-Mart And Wipe That Grin Off The Smiley Face

Here she is, our favorite SS wanna-be, Big Sis, brainwashing the moos into doing the government’s bidding while hurting the poorest among us and building China’s fiscal reserves.

Janet Napolitano and the Wal-Mart ‘Public Service’ Announcement

It’s that time folks; the time when we, as Americans, finally tell Wal-Mart to go **** themselves, to take DHS with them, and to stop building other countries’ economies by speaking to their bottom line.  Television screens blasting DHS’s Orwellian propaganda at the checkouts has GOT TO BE the final straw added to the rest of Wal-mart’s sins.

Boycott Wal-Mart If You Want to Help Save America From Big Brother

America, unfortunately, is still defined by its consumerism . . . and the average American is still defined by their lack of discernment in what they purchase.  Nothing represents the American consumer so well as the mega-corporation Wal-Mart.  It is here, then, that the average American can display their power.  If you don’t care about slave labor in far-off lands working ’till they drop so that you can buy clothes and electronics at pennies on the real value; if you don’t care about Wal-Mart’s discrimination against women; if you don’t care about slave wages and healthcare waivers, then at least care about the foundation of freedom itself.

I know many people have read ‘Janet Napolitano Enlists Wal-Mart To Watch You‘ with the entire DHS press release asking us to ‘report indicators of terrorism, crime and other threats to law enforcement authorities.”  It is Brazil, 1984, and 1939 Nazi Germany all rolled into one blase package for unsuspecting moos.  The establishment has had ten years to condition the public into believing that an attack on American soil is a daily threat so that the moos will just go along with anything including tattle-tail propaganda messages in the biggest retailer in the country.

After the porno-scanners and sexual assaults by TSA, this new invasion into our lives is completely unwarranted and yet, we still have a choice to BOYCOTT Wal-Mart; letting them know that if they play ball with DHS, we won’t spend what little money we have left in their box stores.  I know that during this economic depression, (DO NOT let them brainwash you into believing otherwise), Wal-Mart’s low prices achieved through slave labor are very appealing.  In the small town in which I live, Wal-Mart is one of only three stores where one can purchase basic items, and they have the lowest prices by a longshot.  I always felt like I needed to take a shower after every outing to the big box store, but now after their false advertising during Black Friday weekend, their senior citizen ‘gestapo’ at the door checking every bag like we are all criminals, and Americans as a whole making China filthy rich, I finally had to say “we’ll suffer through” and go without basic necessities until I can afford to purchase them elsewhere.

It’s time to start the boycotts of any and all retailers that are not acting in the best interest of this country, starting with Wal-Mart and the big banks.  If you still have bank accounts or credit cards with the big boys, why not make the change now to a local community bank or credit union?

WHAT EXACTLY ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither safety nor liberty. – Ben Franklin

When the Secretary of DHS furthers the development of the tattle-tail program, (with our money, of course), in order to “report indicators of terrorism, crime and other threats to law enforcement authorities.””, one knows that the continued existence of ‘the state‘ is of the utmost importance and you frakkin’ moos can just go somewhere and die (preferably quickly and cheaply).

Welcome to 1939 Nazi Germany 2.0, with the added twist of America always going the extra mile with style on any project (though Janet has none personally).

BIG SIS INVADES WAL-MART: ‘IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING’

WASHINGTON — Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano today announced the expansion of the Department’s national “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign to hundreds of Walmart stores across the country—launching a new partnership between DHS and Walmart to help the American public play an active role in ensuring the safety and security of our nation.

“Homeland security starts with hometown security, and each of us plays a critical role in keeping our country and communities safe,” said Secretary Napolitano. “I applaud Walmart for joining the ‘If You See Something, Say Something’ campaign. This partnership will help millions of shoppers across the nation identify and report indicators of terrorism, crime and other threats to law enforcement authorities.”

The “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign—originally implemented by New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority and funded, in part, by $13 million from DHS’ Transit Security Grant Program—is a simple and effective program to engage the public and key frontline employees to identify and report indicators of terrorism, crime and other threats to the proper transportation and law enforcement authorities.

More than 230 Walmart stores nationwide launched the “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign today, with a total of 588 Walmart stores in 27 states joining in the coming weeks. A short video message, available here, will play at select checkout locations to remind shoppers to contact local law enforcement to report suspicious activity.

Over the past five months, DHS has worked with its federal, state, local and private sector partners, as well as the Department of Justice, to expand the “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign and Nationwide SAR Initiative to communities throughout the country—including the recent state-wide expansions of the “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign across Minnesota and New Jersey. Partners include the Mall of America, the American Hotel & Lodging Association, Amtrak, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, sports and general aviation industries, and state and local fusion centers across the country.

In the coming months, the Department will continue to expand the “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign nationally with public education materials and outreach tools designed to help America’s businesses, communities and citizens remain vigilant and play an active role in keeping the county safe.

My family started boycotting Wal-Mart two weeks ago (that’s another story), but this is definitely the last straw. Americans needs to send a message to companies that rollover for the fascists in our federal government and peacefully withdraw monetary compensation.  This includes the big banks, big IT like Google and Facebook, and corporate monsters like Wal-Mart.  Americans acting in unison can force companies and even the federal government to ‘straighten up and fly right’.  Starving the beasts is the only way to turn this ship of state away from the icebergs.

Let Inept Homeland Security Handle Foreign Visas?

Let Inept Homeland Security Handle Foreign Visas?

Deer In The Headlights?

AYFKM?  Senator Lieberman thinks it would be a good idea to have Homeland Security, who thinks WE are domestic terrorists, handle the issuance of foreign visas instead of the State Dept?  I personally think that someone like Pam Geller over at Atlas Shrugs should be the one to give the A-OK on all foreign visas instead of Janet “the system worked” Napolitano.  Don’t you?

Give Homeland Security role in U.S. visas: Senator

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Homeland Security Department rather than the State Department should handle U.S. visas overseas to meet security threats, the chairman of the Senate homeland security committee said on Sunday.

Connecticut independent Joe Lieberman raised the idea during a discussion on ABCs “This Week” of the attempted bombing of a Detroit-bound plane on Dec 25.

“I believe, incidentally, that we ought to take a look at taking the visa application and admission responsibility from the State Department. It doesn’t really fit with foreign policy anymore,” he said.

“And in an age of terrorism, I think the Department of Homeland Security ought to be handling visas abroad.”

The 23-year-old Nigerian accused of the attempted bombing, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, held a multiple-entry U.S. visa issued in London, according to a statement by his family.

Leaders of the Senate committee say they will convene a hearing this month to examine airline security.

The committee’s top Republican, Susan Collins of Maine, said on “This Week” the State Department should have revoked Abdulmutallab’s visa after his family told U.S. officials they were worried about his activities.

The Homeland Security Department was to take control this month of a visa program for flight school students.
