“Any discussion about the future of Ukraine must include the legitimate government of Ukraine. In 2014, we are well beyond the days when borders can be redrawn over the heads of democratic leaders.” – Barack HUSSEIN Obama
Bloviations…bloviations and NOTHING more for words are cheap when NOT backed up by action…military action…period.
And while Obama bloviates on and on it appears, at least on the surface, that Crimea does want to become part of Russia, with Russia saying it would welcome Crimea with open arms, especially since 60% of Crimea’s population are ethnic Russians. But Ukraine and the U.S. are poo-pooing the fact that on March 16th, Crimea will hold a referendum on whether to join Russia or remain part of Ukraine, with a ballot in Russian, Ukrainian, and Crimean Tatar that reads in part, “Are you for the reaffirmation of the constitution of the Crimean Republic of 1992 and for Crimea’s status as part of Ukraine?”
The last thing 23-year-old Kyle Rogers remembers before losing consciousness last Sunday was leaving a bar in SoHo and walking north on the Bowery. It was around 2:30 in the morning as he set out. The next thing he knew, he was in an ambulance, in pain and on his way to Bellevue Hospital.
What had happened in the intervening period was revealed by surveillance video that showed a young black man running up behind Rogers and sucker-punching him. It was the latest instance of the “knockout game.”
“Ladies and gentlemen, seeking the truth is the obligation of this committee. I can see no point in going further.” – Darrel Issa after Lois Lerner refused to answer his questions for the second time.
House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa should NOT have adjourned Wednesday’s hearing after former IRS official Lois Lerner repeatedly refused to answer questions about the IRS targeting conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status…that is NOT before he called for her immediate arrest for obstruction of justice after she, for the second time, pleaded ‘the Fifth’ to questions about her role in the scandal.
“On the advice of my counsel, I respectfully exercise my Fifth Amendment right and decline to answer that question,” Lois Lerner regurgitated over and over as she pleading ‘the Fifth’ to every one of Issa’s questions. Pleaded ‘the Fifth’…I thought this administration..of which Lerner is part…was supposed to be the most transparent administration in history…transparency my eye as this group of miscreants knows NOTHING but LIES and covered-ups all while Obama continues to bloviate about transparency Continue reading →
Illinois activist Valinda Rowe says gun-free zones are “killing zones.”
By Dave Workman
After tragedies at Columbine, Virginia Tech, Aurora and Sandy Hook, and so many other attacks that have claimed defenseless lives, it would seem that anybody with good sense would acknowledge that so-called “gun-free zones” have not worked.
In the Illinois capitol of Springfield, where on Wednesday an estimated 3,000 gun rights activists gathered for their annual IGOLD march and lobbying day, veteran gun rights activist Valinda Rowe with Illinois Carry put it rather bluntly: gun free zones are “killing zones.”
Bay State voyeurs, rejoice! The Supreme Judicial Court (SJC) of Massachusetts said on Wednesday that you have their blessings to take “upskirt” photos of unsuspecting — or for that matter suspecting — women as long as they are riding on public transportation.
CBS Boston reports that the state’s high court ruled that Michael Robertson of Andover was within his rights in August 2010 when he used his cellphone to take photos and video up the skirts of two female subway rider. Robertson was arrested by Transit Police. Yesterday, charges against him were dismissed.
If you have one of these, Moms don’t want you talking about selling it on Facebook, or carrying it into a library or a business.
By Dave Workman
Moms Against Illegal Guns is gloating today over a decision by Facebook and its Instagram subsidiary to “take significant steps to block potentially illegal firearm sales through their platforms,” but to the firearms rights community, it seems like another exercise of social bigotry.
According to an MDA press release, the Facebook decision came after a “month-long campaign” by the organization that included a meeting between Facebook officials and Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the group started by billionaire former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and ex-Boston Mayor Tom Menino.
“Military action would be completely legitimate because it was at the request of the President Yanukovych.” – Vladimir Putin
“I am Russian. I don’t need protection.” – Russian protester living in the Ukraine opposed to Putin’s efforts to retake the Ukraine
And so as Russian forces encircle Ukraine with Russian fighter jets having entering Ukrainian air space…and with Russian troops having seized control of Crimea including surrounding Ukrainian military installations all while regaining a much wanted warm-water port…Barack HUSSEIN Obama still does NOTHING to stand strong while Putin sends warships into the Black Sea.
Bottom line..Putin has won this round of the chess game against America’s cowardly wimp that is our president. And while Obama and his shills continue to bloviate meaningless words a new…or should I say a ‘reborn’ old super power has emerged…damn you Obama…damn you as this is indeed all of your doing.

“On Wednesday, Lois Lerner, the director of the IRS division that targeted conservative groups, invoked the Fifth Amendment when appearing before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, telling the committee she broke no laws and did nothing wrong, Fox News reported.”
The words are from an article by LU’s Joe Newby written last May. Today is Wednesday again. Lerner again appeared before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and again declined to testify, invoking her Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination.
The results of a new Rasmussen poll released yesterday reveal that 33% of U.S. voters now say their health insurance coverage has changed as a result of Obamacare, and the same pecentage say the change has been for the worse.
Need evidence to support the argument that tenure for schoolteachers should be abolished? Then try this: A Michigan teacher who bullied an autistic child stuck in a chair while his classmates looked on and laughed is on paid administrative leave while the school board grapples with the fact that her tenure makes firing her difficult.
Nicole McVey, the teacher at Oaktree Elementary School, in Goodrich, inexplicably recorded plight of an unnamed 10-year-old boy who suffers from Asperger’s syndrome. The recording, which is now evidence in the case to unseat her, also shows her boss, Principal Michael Ellis, teasing the child.
