Pajamas Media » BREAKING: Sen. Leahy (D-VT) Denies Senate Judiciary Request to Investigate New Black Panther Case

There is nothing more precious to Americans as our right to vote and the belief that our voting rights are sacred and protected. The dismissal of charges against people who commit voter intimidation -- BLATANTLY and with video evidence of it -- simply because they are black ("minority") is about as UNAmerican as it gets. Martin Luther King, Jr. himself must be rolling in his grave.

Despite the DOJ’s failure to present any credible justification for withholding relevant documents and subpoenaed witnesses, the Commission offered Holder a compromise on July 28. Without waiving its demand for information about the NBPP dismissal, the Commission offered to limit its initial questioning of Christopher Coates if Justice would produce him as a witness. The Commission offered to temporarily forgo questions about the NBBP case deliberations and instead ask about the DOJ policies that J. Christian Adams testified about: the directive from Julie Fernandes, the deputy assistant attorney general for civil rights, that no cases would be filed against black or other minority defendants and no cases would be filed to enforce Section 8 of the National Voter Registration Act.


Pajamas Media » BREAKING: Sen. Leahy (D-VT) Denies Senate Judiciary Request to Investigate New Black Panther Case

Senator Leahy (D-VT) and all of the power-hungry apparatchiks in DC (regardless of party affiliation) who turn their heads to such a blatant disregard for protecting the vote in this county by allow this case to be dismissed are nothing short of criminals. All this is going on while Congress refuses to protect the right of our Armed Forces to have their votes counted. I have never been more embarrassed by this Congress than I am over something as simple as protecting the hard-won right of every American to cast his vote.

Jack Conway Reveals Support For "Job Killer"

You mean he finally made an appearance and I missed it?! ;-) If you're like me and missed the momentous event, click the audio link at the end of this post from The Coalition to Protect Kentucky Jobs.

Color me unsurprised by Conway's support for this. Really. How could he NOT support that job-killer -- he'd have an empty campaign war chest if he didn't.

 

Jack Conway Reveals Support For "Job  Killer"

Conway "On Record" In Support Of Employee 'Forced' Choice Act

 

Louisville, KY (July 28, 2010)Candidate for U.S. Senate Jack Conway revealed in a radio interview this morning that he supports the Employee 'Forced' Choice Act (EFCA), supports removing the secret ballot from union-organizing elections and wants to make it "as easy as possible" for Kentucky's small businesses to be forcibly unionized by means of EFCA.  He reiterated his support for the legislation even as the interviewer pointed out that the legislation was a "job killer."

 

During the live interview on The Mandy Connell Show on WHAS-AM radio this morning, Conway said that he wants to make it "as easy as we can" for Big Labor bosses to force unionization on Kentucky workers and small businesses.  Conway admitted that Kentucky has lost "100,000 manufacturing jobs in this state in the last decade," but continued to say he supports a law that both economists and job creators have told us would cost Kentucky even more jobs.

 

"Jack Conway is now clearly and unambiguously 'on record' supporting legislation he understands will destroy jobs in Kentucky, even while tens of thousands of those he aspires to represent in Congress can't find work," said Scott Jennings, state director of the Coalition to Protect Kentucky Jobs (CPKJ).  "For the last two months, we have repeatedly asked Mr. Conway to clarify his position on this issue, to reconsider his stance and to side with Kentucky workers and small businesses.  Regrettably, instead, Conway has chosen to stand with the Big Labor bosses in support of a 'job killer.'"

Cry Racism! and Let Slip the Dogs of Politics

Cry Racism! and Let Slip the Dogs of Politics

...these dogs need an obedience lesson via a long stay at the pound.

Our Divisive President

Barack Obama promised a new era of post-partisanship. In office, he's played racial politics and further split the country along class and party lines.


[...] Even the former head of the Civil Rights Commission, Mary Frances Berry, acknowledged that the Obama administration has taken to polarizing America around the issue of race as a means of diverting attention away from other issues, saying: "the charge of racism is proving to be an effective strategy for Democrats. . . . Having one's opponent rebut charges of racism is far better than discussing joblessness." [...]

As GOP power seems closer, should it discard some Bush economic policies? | Washington Examiner

It is my sincere hope that the GOP, if it spanks the Democrats as hard as expected in the midterm elections, pays VERY close attention to correcting past mistakes. I can't speak for all Tea Partiers but I can tell you that a large contingent of us are expecting an adjustment in the "ruling class" attitudes and a revamped, sharp, efficient, and streamlined fiscal policy.

My worst fear is that we get better GOP numbers in Congress this midterm only to end up with more of the same poor fiscal Policy "management."

If this isn't just the most blatant example of why we need a Flat or Fair Tax to end the games in DC, I don't know what is. As long as politicians are allowed to manipulate tax code to favor some and penalize others, we will continue to have Rangelitis on Capitol Hill.

URGENT ACTION ALERT!!!

Having trouble viewing this email? Click here

Harry Reid and the Democrats' New McCarthyism -
Voting on the DISCLOSE Act in ONE HOUR!
The Democrats are running scared, fearful of the impact grassroots activists will have in November. With the DISCLOSE Act, which will go into effect almost immediately, in time for the November elections, they will be able to effectively and legally shut us down. The effort to silence us before the elections is tantamount to a witch hunt. Read this email carefully for more information about this bill and then please make some phone calls NOW and tell them to VOTE NO!!
 
  
From our friends at Freedom Action about this speech violating bill:

 
Even if somehow the speech restrictions in this bill were constitutional, their uneven application would be a violation of the Fourteenth Amendment's equal protection under the law. Even the left-leaning Sierra Club has labeled the DISCLOSE Act a two-tiered system that is "unfair and undemocratic" and that smaller grass-roots organizations would be disadvantaged because they lack the resources to cope with "the additional disclosure burdens." The unions and the big non-profit groups get to keep their free speech given to them in the January Supreme Court decision, but the corporations and small non-profits lose theirs under DISCLOSE.
 
Also, President Obama and some Democrats are dishonestly stating that the Court's decision would "open the floodgates for special interest, including foreign corporations, to spend without limit in our elections." However, current federal law and Federal Election Commission regulations already ban foreign corporations from participating directly or indirectly in American elections. (see 2 U.S.C. § 441e and 2 U.S.C. 437g).
  
 HOW THIS AFFECTS YOU

Exampleville, Ohio has two people running for U.S. Congress-Mr. A and Mr. B-in what promises to be a close race. Exampleville's local Tea Party believes in Mr. B. The Tea Party wants to run ads highlighting Mr. B's stance on cap and trade, federal spending, increased taxation, etc, but they don't have enough money to fulfill the new highly complex reporting requirements from DISCLOSE. And DISCLOSE would force them to list their top donors, even if they are not necessarily the specific donors to the ads, in their ads. Besides, the disclaimers required could take up to 14 of a 30 second ad. The Tea Party gives up trying to run ads to support Mr. Republican.
 
In contrast, Mr. A has some well-funded unions who want to see Exampleville's factories unionized, so the unions run ads against Mr. B and ads for Mr. A. Also, the Sierra Club and the ACLU (groups actually opposed to DISCLOSE) want Mr. A to support their issues, so they also run ads for Mr. A. None of these ads are subject to DISCLOSE's requirements.
 
Guess who wins?
 
(For those interested, here's a good link with information on the actual language and problems with the DISCLOSE bill, click here.)
 
The DISCLOSE Act exempts unions and very large special interest groups!! And the little guy is left without a voice.

The more things change...

..the more they stay the same. From today's edition of "Daily Events:"

July 23, 1764

"Taxation Without Representation" coined

On this day in 1764, Massachusetts lawyer James Otis, Jr. published his thoughts on taxation, coining the phrase "taxation without representation."

I know liberals will find this confusing. How can that ConservaChick person claim to be taxed without being represented?! I guess it's an inside joke among us Conservatives, huh? Unfortunately, the joke will be on our kids and generations more to come courtesy of our current Political Ruling Class.

Local Voices at WLKY.com's u Local

Just a quick note this morning to make you all aware that yours truly will be blogging as one of the "Local Voices" in the u local section of WLKY's website. My first post went up in the wee hours of this morning! I suppose ConservaChick will be introducing a whole new readership to what the "extreme" politics of Conservatism is all about locally. I'm excited and hope you'll stop in on occasion.

Thanks for the opportunity to be a part of an exciting new project like this, Rick!

We're hiring a former ACORN employee as our new spokesperson!

Liberty First PAC, Tax Day Tea Party and the Patriot Caucus have scored a major win by having Anita Moncrief join our ranks as an advisor. Like Tammy Bruce, David Horowitz, and many others who left the oppressive ranks of Borgish Liberalism to join the cause of Liberty, Anita is a patriot and a hero. It's an exciting time to be a Tea Partier!

Here's the message from Eric Odom:

Sweet Irony!

Fellow Patriots,

Liberty First PAC, TaxDayTeaParty.com and the Patriot Caucus is very excited to announce that Anita MonCrief, a former ACORN employee and whistle blower of the organization, will be joining our team as national spokesperson!

Anita, a former self-described liberal, has spent the past year working hard to advance the ideas and principles of liberty. She's served on our advisory committee for most of 2010, and she's been a vital part of what we do.

For those who do not know the back story on Anita MonCrief, you can watch one of her appearances on Fox News that was taped while she was testifying against ACORN.

Anita is a great patriot, a true fighter for freedom, and we're honored to have her stand with us in our efforts.

Read more about Anita on her official website here. Anita will begin with us on August 1st, 2010.

Dog Gets Own Plane on Vacation Trip

While I'm offended at the amount of entourage and excess with which this president travels, whether it's vacation or business, I tend to agree with a number of others who wish everyone on Capitol Hill would vacation more and legislate less.

Noblesse Oblige: Obama's Dog Gets Own Plane on Vacation Trip
July 17, 2010 - by Warner Todd Huston

The Morning Sentinel, a small paper from the state of Maine, has a travelogue story of the Obama's vacation in and about Maine today. It has a very interesting little tidbit in it that should enrage every American. It is something that really shows Barack Obama's arrogance and his obviously assumed air of noblesse oblige.

Among the exciting details of the Obama's visit to Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor is this tidbit:

Arriving in a small jet before the Obamas was the first dog, Bo, a Portuguese water dog given as a present by the late U.S. Sen Ted Kennedy, D-Mass.…

As the rest of us toil on the unemployment line, as millions of Americans find their retirement accounts dwindling, their hours at work cut, and their pay scale trimmed, King Barack and Queen Michelle are flying their little doggie, Bo, on his own special jet airplane for his own little vacation adventure.

Well, it must be nice to be able to afford to fly your doggie about the country whenever you feel like it. It must be nice to hire people to act as your dog's escort. It must be comforting to know that you have the power to arrange such luxury for a dog.

As America lurches toward depression our leader is wasting millions on constant vacationing — 16 vehicles were used to drive the Obama's around North Carolina — and affording his dog …his dog… his owns special jet airplane.

Air traffic at the small Hancock County-Bar Harbor Airport in Trenton was shut down for the presidential arrival. A U.S. Coast Guard helicopter patrolled the air in anticipation of the first family's touchdown, and a pair of local fire and rescue trucks stood ready on an otherwise empty tarmac at the private air hangar. The Obamas then traveled onto Mount Desert Island in a motorcade of at least 16 vehicles. It was led by two Maine State Police cruisers and included five black Chevrolet Suburbans.

And all this on OUR dime, folks. We are paying for our monarch to fly his pets around the country on their own special jets, folks. Perhaps Barack Obama isn't like a king. Perhaps he's more like an emperor? An emperor like the fiddling Nero.

Obama Administration Moves to Implement Sunlight Before Signing

Obama Administration Moves to Implement Sunlight Before Signing

Now, it's YOUR turn, Congress!

HUMAN EVENTS Article: Bill Kristol Must Resign

Ann Coulter is my favorite sharp wit! ..."Naomi Campbell is rougher with her assistants than our troops are allowed to be with Taliban fighters." ... You go, Girl!

Bill Kristol Must Resign
by Ann Coulter

Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele was absolutely right. Afghanistan is Obama's war and, judging by other recent Democratic ventures in military affairs, isn't likely to turn out well.

It has been idiotically claimed that Steele's statement about Afghanistan being Obama's war is "inaccurate" -- as if Steele is unaware Bush invaded Afghanistan soon after 9/11. (No one can forget that -- even liberals pretended to support that war for three whole weeks.)

Yes, Bush invaded Afghanistan soon after 9/11. Within the first few months we had
toppled the Taliban, killed or captured hundreds of al-Qaida fighters and
arranged for democratic elections, resulting in an American-friendly government.

Then Bush declared success and turned his attention to Iraq, leaving minimal troops behind in Afghanistan to prevent Osama bin Laden from regrouping, swat down al-Qaida fighters and gather intelligence.

Having some vague concept of America's national interest -- unlike liberals -- the Bush administration could see that a country of illiterate peasants living in caves
ruled by "warlords" was not a primo target for "nation-building."

By contrast, Iraq had a young, educated, pro-Western populace that was ideal for
regime change.

If Saddam Hussein had been a peach, it would still be a major victory in the war on terrorism to have a Muslim Israel in that part of the globe, and it sure wasn't going to be Afghanistan (literacy rate, 19 percent; life expectancy, 44 years; working toilets, 7).

But Iraq also was a state sponsor of terrorism; was attempting to build nuclear weapons (according to endless bipartisan investigations in this country and in Britain
-- thanks, liberals!); nurtured and gave refuge to Islamic terrorists -- including the 1993 World Trade Center bombers; was led by a mass murderer who had used weapons of mass destruction; paid bonuses t o the families of suicide bombers; had vast oil reserves; and is situated at the heart of a critical region.

Having absolutely no interest in America's national security, the entire Democratic Party (save Joe Lieberman) wailed about the war in Iraq for five years, pretending they really wanted to go great-guns in Afghanistan. What the heck: They had already voted for the war in Afghanistan in the wake of 9/11 when they would have been hanged as traitors had they objected.

The obsession with Afghanistan was pure rhetoric. Democrats have no interest in
fighting any war that would serve America's interests. (They're too jammed with
their wars against Evangelicals, Wal-Mart, the Pledge of Allegiance, SUVs and
the middle class.) Absent Iraq, they'd have been bad-mouthing Afghanistan, too.

So for the entire course of the magnificently successful war in Iraq, all we heard from these useless Democrats was that Iraq was a "war of choice," while Afghanistan -- the good war! -- was a "war of necessity." "Bush took his eye off the ball in Afghanistan!" "He got distracted by war in Iraq!" "WHERE'S OSAMA?" and -- my favorite -- "Iraq didn't attack us on 9/11!"

Of course, neither did Afghanistan. But Democrats were in a lather and couldn't be
bothered with the facts.

The above complaints about Iraq come -- nearly verbatim -- from speeches and press conferences by Obama, Joe Biden, and Obama's national security advisers Susan Rice and Richard Clarke. Also, the entire gutless Democratic Party. Some liberals began including them in their wedding vows.

(By the way, Democrats: WHERE'S OSAMA?)

Obama hasn't ramped up the war in Afghanistan based on a careful calculation of America's strategic objectives. He did it because he was trapped by his own rhetorical game of bashing the Iraq war while pretending to be a hawk on Afghanistan.

At this point, Afghanistan is every bit as much Obama's war as Vietnam was Lyndon Johnson's war. True, President Kennedy was the first to send troops to Vietnam. We had 16,000 troops in Vietnam when JFK was assassinated. Within four years, LBJ had sent 400,000 troops there.

In the entire seven-year course of the Afghanistan war under Bush, from October
2001 to January 2009, 625 American soldiers were killed. In 18 short months,
Obama has nearly doubled that number to 1,124 Americans killed.

Republicans used to think seriously about deploying the military. President Eisenhower sent aid to South Vietnam, but said he could not "conceive
of a greater tragedy" for America than getting heavily involved there.

As Michael Steele correctly noted, every great power that's tried to stage an all-out war in Afghanistan has gotten its ass handed to it. Everyone knows it's not worth the trouble and resources to take a nation of rocks and brigands.

Based on Obama's rules of engagement for our troops in Afghanistan, we're apparently not even fighting a war. The greatest fighting force in the world is building vocational schools and distributing cheese crackers to children.

There's even talk of giving soldiers medals for NOT shooting people, which I gather will be awarded posthumously. Naomi Campbell is rougher with her assistants than our troops are allowed to be with Taliban fighters.

But now I hear it is the official policy of the Republican Party to be for all wars, irrespective of our national interest.

What if Obama decides to invade England because he's still ticked off about that
Churchill bust? Can Michael Steele and I object to that? Or would that demoralize the troops?

Our troops are the most magnificent in the world, but they're not the ones setting military policy. The president is -- and he's basing his war strategy on the chants of Moveon.org cretins.

Nonetheless, Bill Kristol and Liz Cheney have demanded that Steele resign as head of the RNC for saying Afghanistan is now Obama's war -- and a badly thought-out one at that. (Didn't liberals warn us that neoconservatives want permanent war?)

I thought the irreducible requirements of Republicanism were being for life, small government and a strong national defense, but I guess permanent war is on the platter now, too.

Of course, if Kristol is writing the rules for being a Republican, we're all going to have to get on board for amnesty and a "National Greatness Project," too – other Kristol ideas for the Republican Party. Also, John McCain. Kristol was an early backer of McCain for president -- and look how great that turned out!

Inasmuch as demanding resignations is another new Republican position, here's mine: Bill Kristol and Liz Cheney must resign immediately.

The Impact of Government Spending on Economic Growth

Published in 2005, this report should enlighten those of you still in the dark as to why Tea Parties are reaching critical mass now. It's a core Conservative belief that bigger Federal government is bad for liberty; this report from the Heritage Foundation puts numbers to why it's also bad for our economy.

Time for meaningful change is slipping rapidly past... actually, maybe we crossed the Rubicon aboard the ship of "compassionate conservatism?"

The Talking Feds

Great new music video from RightChange.com!

OTP

I may be severely lagging in getting this out but I just saw it today. I'm not much of a rap music fan... well, actually, I hate it unless it's more techno than rap. This song has a great mix that makes it enjoyable even to an old fuddy-duddy like me.

For the record, Molotov Mitchell who wrote and produced this music video is an Independent who felt he couldn't support John McCain and did not vote for Obama. Is he biased? Hard to say since he didn't like McCain or Obama. I'd say he's represents where a whole lot of Conservatives were in 2008.

Oh and who wants to be the first Lib to point out that all the DJs are white? Any racists in the house, yo?

I am remiss in getting this information posted -- sorry for the delay, folks!

For those of you who want to help support our troops and show your appreciation for their sacrifices, Move America Forward's Troopathon is a great way to do it. Please tune in and do what you can. It's a rough economy but, no matter how rough it may be for you, it's much harder on every member of our Armed Forces standing for us right now in harm's way. Remember them as we celebrate a long holiday weekend to celebrate our Independence.

AMERICA'S GREATEST RADIO TALK SHOW HOSTS COME TOGETHER FOR OUR TROOPS

WATCH THEM SUPPORT OUR TROOPS

TROOPATHON 2010

THURSDAY, JULY 1, 2010

4:00pm to Midnight EST
1:00pm to 9:00pm PST



America's greatest conservative radio talk show hosts are coming together to support our troops.  We have to stand with them at the 3rd Annual Troopathon to show our troops that we care.

Appearing on the 8 hour telethon being broadcast on the internet will be your favorite radio talk show hosts as well as plenty of Hollywood stars and Washington DC conservatives.  In the first hour, the show will start off with Rush Limbaugh.  Rush does so much for the troops, yet he does it privately.  But on Thursday, you will see him proudly "Standing for Our Soldiers".

The reason Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Mark Levin, Dr. Laura, Dennis Miller and so many others give their valuable time to our troops is because they know the American people have to stand up when the politicians in Washington are conspicuously absent.

The best thing you can do now is to send a care package to the troops to show them that the American people are 100% behind them:
 


Your donation will send a care package full of edible goodies and other helpful items to anywhere from one or 50 troops serving overseas in Iraq of Afghanistan.  Not only do these packages have goodies like cookies, coffee, beef jerky, Gatorade, jelly bellies, but they have some real necessities like lip balm, moist wipes, deodorant. 

The most important thing in the package is the words you write to them to let them know you are behind him.  Some of our Troopathon team members were in Iraq just two weeks ago.  The men and women of the military are so appreciative of support from Americans.  They shed a tear as they told us how good it feels is to receive packages from every-day Americans.

Please help by watching the Troopathon on Thursday on your computer, tell your friends about it, and support our troops with a care package.

OUR TALK SHOW HOSTS ARE COUNTING ON YOU
DON'T LET THEM AND OUR TROOPS DOWN

These great men and women support our military and never stopped advocating for the Troops. The Troopathon is only 1 day away! Please make your contributions now to assure that we have success on the July 1st broadcast!

PLEASE MAKE A DONATION TODAY TO SUPPORT THE TROOPATHON AND SUPPORT OUR TROOPS!

Rise Up

My husband and I marched with hundreds of thousands on 9/12/2009 as a part of the Taxpayers March on DC. This song and the music video completely capture the spirit of that day. It was inspiring and eye-opening. So many voices, so many feet on the street, as we marched peacefully to express our desire to return this country to its roots, its greatness, its liberty.




Thank you for this, Jeremy! That day will live forever in this video and this song. You are a great asset to the movement.
