Aaaaaa, It’s the Weekend – UPDATED





Woo Hoo!  Good morning everyone and happy weekend!!

 

OK, I’ll just cut to the chase and share my absolute favorite thing right now…   I just can’t watch this enough without laughing… and laughing… and rolling on the floor laughing… ooohhh my sides hurt LOL!!

 

The countdown begins.  I have a feeling this is going to be the most interesting 10-11 days we’ve possibly ever had in an election cycle.  I think we are going to see some more significant leaks come out on Libya. I hear Obama is going to announce some major things possibly like he closed Gitmo and a tax cut for the middle class.  We might hopefully hear more about the foreign donors donating to Obama’s campaign.  Obama may choose to bomb Libya, the UN thinks they are coming to town to watch our elections but Texas says hell no, Hurricane Sandy seems to be coming to the east coast, voter fraud is raring it’s ugly head in the form of rigged voting machines, then you have these huge crowds showing up at Romney/Ryan rallies and large early voter turnouts for the GOP in many states so this is all proving to be very interesting.

I must say I am not a fan of early voting.  I think there is too much room for ballots to be lost, computers to lose data and votes and way too much opportunity for fraud.  It basically gives Obama a chance to know going in to election day just how much ground he needs to invent in order to win.  I don’t like that.  If the GOP wasn’t the party of stupid then maybe I wouldn’t worry so much but they are and I don’t have much faith that they will be prepared to stop or combat any of this.

Headlines:

Gov. Palin speaks tonight in New Orleans.  I would love to be there when she and Rick Santelli meet. Two great people that are pretty much the founder and driving force behind the Tea Party.  Dinesh D’Souza will also be there along with Charles Krauthammer.  Maybe someone will have a live feed tonight.

Look is who is joining Fox News… definitely not a rino, more like a Penn Jillette libertarian…

Hey, we’ve got a new porch to hang out on… this should be loads of fun!!

I cannot disagree with this article… it is well researched and sober in analysis and expectation…

Hmmmmmm

Heartbreaking and wrong… wrong, wrong, wrong…

Prayers for Dan Riehl

And so it begins

2 against 200 and 60 are left dead…

Sorry Barry, I’m not for sale

This is HUGE

Petraeus throws Obama under the bus…

Yeah… where is it?  Cough it up…

Poor Gloria Allred… she’s all red

But they said that they never said it was about the movie…

Keep it up dufus… we aren’t stupid here and Gore’s comments are part of the reason CO has shifted.  People have little tolerance here for such stupidity… now we have more reason to shift right…

Um… I didn’t think they required an ID to vote in Chicago…

Wow…

Ouch!!  That’s gotta hurt…

Grab the kleenex… Bristol tweeted this amazing video:

 

 

Kyle Clark is popular here but he was only able to get away with these questions because this is the political climate of Colorado.  He knew that there would be very little backlash to his aggressive, direct questions. In fact, he knew he would likely receive praise.  That alone should worry Team Obama…

Obama refuses to answer tough questions:

 

UPDATED:

Benghazi just keeps getting worse for Obama… Lt. Col. Shaffer says Obama was in the room watching the attack…

What the White House doesn’t want American’s to see regarding Benghazi…

Witness coming forward with testimony about Benghazi attack… 150 men

Pat Caddell... God bless him…

More power

Mittens picks up an endorsement

Prayers for Marco Rubio’s daughter

It was missed because it isn’t true…

 

Have a great weekend everyone!!!  Enjoy your freedom!!

    My Dear Friends in Sarah,

    Happy Saturday to you all!!

    Below are some reflections on the Gethsemane, the Agony, that our finest and best, our American military, have had to face at the hands of the–yes, I shall say it–diabolical obama “administration.”

    The agony has been physical, of course; but I think that it may be, beyond the corporal realm, psychological and spiritual too.

    God bless you all always!!

    Our Sarah always!!

    Brianus

    THE AGONY OF AMERICA’S MILITARY AND THE HEALING POWER OF SARAH

    Physical torment:

    So many of our troops have been injured, maimed, or killed in recent years as a result of politically-correct rules of engagement put in place by the current usurpers in Washington. Our friend, stlouisix, has demonstrated this.

    Interior torment:

    But, beyond the terrible corporeal ordeals of the military, loom psychological, mental, and spiritual torments, especially in being “led” by a “commander-in-chief” who is, on the evidence of his own words and actions, a domestic enemy of the United States of America.

    Now, let us consider the situation if the usurping obama “administration,” in a desperate and eleventh-hour attempt to retain POWER (which is their “god”–the power cruelly to dictate to and rule over others)–let us reflect on the possibility that obama will decide to bomb Libya, in supposed retaliation for Benghazi, but really in a vicious and mendacious attempt to appear “strong,” and to steal the election from Romney.

    Consider, my friends, the AGONY, the inner agony, of conservative members of our military, airmen and others, who would have to carry out such orders, knowing full well that the effect of such commands might be to reinstate the BESTIAL obama “administration” for four more years–I almost think that the torments of Hell itself could not be worse for patriot hearts!!

    This abuse of the power to command our military is one of the chief reasons why the “messiah” and his allies must be crushed by the American People on 6 November.

    It is my opinion that these traitors, these merciless enemies of our nation and of our armed forces, from obama on down, must be tried for treason once they are defeated on 6 November, and should be convicted and then punished to the full extent of the laws of the United States of America.

    Indeed, and I hope that what I am about to say does not seem intemperate or exaggerated, but I think these people deserve to go to HELL for all eternity in just retribution for the HELL that they have put all patriotic Americans through since 2009, but especially our noblest and finest and best. Of course, this is the Lord’s “call”; He is merciful IF people repent of their crimes …

    But, I expect that voluminous and damning REVELATIONS are going to come out once obama is ousted from power, and once members of the military can speak freely. I suspect that thousands and thousands of tales of horror will come out from lips and from pens that have been heretofore shackled in chains and bonds and bands of SILENCE!! Only then may we learn the full and foul extent of the HELL ON EARTH that these wretched community organizers, these social-experimentation freaks, these demons of political correctness, these America-hating madmen, these vile commie thugs have put our troops through!!

    But at the least, whatever the eventual temporal and eternal fate of these creatures is, let us pray that they, at the minimum, will be thrust and cast down from their seats of power on Tuesday, 6 November–even if they never have to pay, in THIS life, for their crimes against America and their crimes against humanity.

    ABOVE ALL, let us pray, brothers and sisters, that none of our finest has to face, in the next few days, the agony of soul and of conscience that would result from being commanded to carry out orders designed and intended, not to uphold the national interests of the United States of America, but to keep the obamunist junta in power.

    As someone said on C4P a few days ago, we have had bad Presidents in the past, but barack hussein obama seems to be the first purely evil person ever to occupy the office. He and his Chicago gang would do anything to retain the offices that they have seized and usurped, but they can only do what the All-Highest permits them to do.

    And because we must keep our spirits bright and burnished and bonny for the battles that lie ahead, and because contrasts and foils are so useful to paint and illustrate the truth of things, let us consider, in the joy and exultation of anticipation and imagination, what a total opposite to the hell and nightmare of the years of obama will be the YEARS OF OUR DEAR SARAH, for all of the nation, but especially for our military.

    To go from a hound of hell like obama, for whom our soldiers and sailors and airmen and Marines are merely disposable pawns to be moved on a chessboard of political correctness and raw power, to a GREATHEARTED LADY WARRIOR who understands, who sympathizes with, who admires, who LOVES our military, and each and every man and woman in that military, will be like passing from the “valley of the shadow of death” to the bright and beautiful Elysian Fields!!

    God Save America; God Save Our Military; God Save Our Sarah!!!

    • BrianusBerkleianus

      Good morning again, Everyone!

      In connection with, and as an addendum and complement to, the above post on the agony of our military, where I underlined and emphasized the agony of having to carry out unjust orders, I may add the following words, which are a tribute to an American hero who confronted the opposite situation last month during the Benghazi attack: Not UNJUST ORDERS TO ACT, but UNJUST ORDERS NOT TO ACT

      BRIEF TRIBUTE TO THE WOODS FAMILY, AMERICAN HEROES

      The Woods family, father and son, Charles and Tyrone, are HEROES OF AMERICA:

      First, Charles:

      In an interview with Sean Hannity, he bravely calls obama the COWARD that he is (“the cowards in the White House”) and he censures a “generation of liars,” “who have no moral background.”

      He hopes that his son’s majestic sacrifice may help lead to a “new generation of true American heroes,” who have moral courage and are not liars.

      He boldly describes obama’s “dead fish” handshake, when the “president” greeted him upon the return of his son’s body to the US. He notes that obama could not look him in the eye. He calls out obama for saying “I’m sorry” in a “whiny little voice.”

      May the sorrow and suffering of this father at the loss of a priceless and noble son, and may the splendid courage of this dad in describing obama for what he is before all of America–may these acts of a great man help topple the criminal Washington regime on 6 November.

      AND ONE DAY PERHAPS PRESIDENT PALIN MAY FIND A PLACE IN HER ADMINISTRATION FOR CHARLES WOODS, RETIRED ATTORNEY, PATRIOT, AND THE FATHER OF AN AMERICAN HERO.

      Second, Tyrone:

      In Benghazi he bravely rushed in to save fellow Americans at the cost and price of his own life–in the finest and noblest traditions of our great nation–and of the NAVY SEALS!!

      He disregarded an immoral and unjust order not to act, when there was a clear and obvious moral imperative to take action.

      The Name of TYRONE WOODS will be writ large in letters of GOLD in the Honor Roll of American Heroes when the name barack hussein obama has been confined to the dust bin as the worst “president” in our history.

      I do not know the technicalities, since Tyrone was no longer on active service, but, nevertheless,

      MAYBE PRESIDENT PALIN AND CONGRESS CAN AWARD HIM POSTHUMOUSLY ONE DAY THE CONGRESSIONAL MEDAL OF HONOR for what he did on that fearful day in Benghazi!!

      MAY THE SACRIFICE OF TYRONE, WHO GAVE HIS LIFE AND HIS BLOOD FOR HIS FELLOW AMERICANS, FOR HIS FRIENDS, DRAW DOWN THE MERCY OF HEAVEN ON AMERICA, AND RID US OF THAT SCOURGE OF HELL, barack hussein obama, and his fellow criminals in Washington!!

      MY GOD BLESS THE WOODS FAMILY;

      MAY GOD DESTROY THE USURPING THUGOCRACY OF barack hussein obama!!!

      God Save SarahAmerica!!!

      Brianus

      • Gelston

        I had the same thought at about  3 this morning.
        These two brave men deserve the Congressional Medal of Honor.
        They fought against overwhelming numbers of atackers. (is the story true that they killed 60 attackers?) They died defending American soil.
        I say, award them the C-M-o-H. 

        • BrianusBerkleianus

          Amen, friend Gelston!!!

  • BrianusBerkleianus

    And good morning, Firelight, and thanks for the great post!!

    God bless.

    My apologies if this has already been mentioned, but I just found out some very sad news — our good friend Bestbud passed away a few weeks ago. Here is his obit:

    Obituary for Donald Jay Shipman

    Memorial services for Donald Jay Shipman, 70, of Lubbock will be at 2:00 p.m., Thursday, September 20, 2012 at the Fellowship Church of Lubbock, 6104-45th Street with Reverend John Valentine officiating. At his request, Don’s remains were donated to the Texas Tech Health Science Program. Our beloved “Pops” went to be with our Heavenly Father on September 17, 2012 at home with his family.

    Donald was born March 23, 1942 in Raton, NM to Melvin and Mary Ellen Shipman. He was raised in Albuquerque and later moved to Amarillo where he graduated Amarillo High School in 1960. Donald graduated from Texas Tech University in 1969 with his Bachelor’s Degree in Civil Engineering. He married Regina Boyd on August 26, 1966 in Amarillo.

    Donald was employed by TxDOT from 1964 until 1998. After retiring he made his home in Lubbock, TX. Don was an active member of Fellowship Church of Lubbock. Loved ones include his wife; daughter, Christi Salyer and husband, Shane; sons, Kevin and Jonathan Shipman; grandchildren, Maddie, Jake and Carley Salyer; Hagan and Dyson Shipman; brother, Ronnie Shipman; and sister, Elaine Smith.

    Memorials are suggested to the American Cancer Society of Lubbock or to Accolade Hospice. Don’s greatest pleasure was spending time with his family. He loved to attend his grandchildren’s activities and would rarely miss one of their sporting events.

      • BrianusBerkleianus

        Amen, Whitney!!

    • BrianusBerkleianus

      Thank you so much, Bean Counter, for letting us know.

      Don was a greathearted, beautiful soul, and a WARRIOR for Sarah and for his country.

      I feel blessed and privileged to have met him twice, at the San Diego and Chicago C4P meet-ups in 2010.

      RIP, dear friend of Sarah!!

      May the Angels of the Lord carry you into Paradise, and may you help us here below as we fight on for Sarah and for country!!

      God bless, Bean Counter!!

      • senator20526

         Our prayers are with the family…I, too, met him in San Diego….a kinder man you will never meet…..God Bless

          Amen!!

    • c4pfan

      Oh, no!:(  Thank you for letting us know. 

    • Firelight

      my heart is sad.   I FB messaged him and didn’t get response so I wondered and worried.  My heart is sad indeed.

      RIP Bestbud.

    • Bean Counter

      It had been awhile since I communicated with him, last time we spoke, he wasn’t doing well, I could hear it in his voice, but he always put up a brave and optimistic front. I didn’t want to bother him further if he wasn’t feeling up to it, but of course, now I regret it.

      Such a cheerful, sweet and generous soul, and a true patriot. I’m so blessed that I had the pleasure of spending time with him at the gatherings in San Diego and Chicago. We planned the Phoenix gathering around his chemo schedule, hoping he’d be well enough to come. When I got to Phoenix, I had a voicemail message from him, saying he just wasn’t feeling up to traveling.

      There’s just nothing more to be said than this…Happy Trails and Sarah Palin smiles.

      PS I hate cancer.

      • Gelston

        I lost 4 patients in the last two weeks, ages 95, 93, 87 and 87.
        Ms Counter, I am always impressed by how generously ladies reach out. You (pleural) put men to shame. It is a vulnerable time of life.
        His comments were always worth reading.
        A good man who deserves his rest.

    Speaking of early voting, here’s an interesting tidbit:
    http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1012/82948.html

    “220,000 fewer Democrats have voted early in Ohio compared with 2008. And 30,000 more Republicans have cast their ballots compared with four years ago. That is a 250,000-vote net increase for a state Obama won by 260,000 votes in 2008.”

    I hope it doesn’t come down to CO, because I don’t like those chances.

    • Firelight

      I love Crowder.  He has me in stitches with this one. 

      I agree that while I definitely think CO is legit in leaning toward Mitt, it is just too close. The margin isn’t big enough and just like how Perlmutter always wins, the Dems will pull this out because they have a well oiled fraud machine.  I’m not convinced Gessler can out-maneuver them.

    Firelight, Along with the dems voter fraud,i also think it is important to remind people people about the involvement of ‘Whiteboard’ and the rest of the Bushies in trying to give Obama another term. No one can tell me that Virgill Goode and Gary Johnson aren’t GOPe/Bush  establishment ‘Stalking Horses’ for Jebbie. Also and perhaps just as bad, i  believe the GOPe/Bush are involved in trying to make sure the dems keep control of the Senate. Neocon Bushie Rob Sobhani,the American born,iranian raised businessman,dropped his republican party id,to run as an independent,against incumbent senator democrat Ben Cardin and the Sarah Palin endorsed republican candidate,former Secret Service agent,Dan Bongino. Geez,wouldn’t Sobhani mainly hurt Bongino? sarc.The Bushies want to make sure all of Obama’s lefty agenda ( Which the GOPe/Bush are also for ) gets cemented in and the Tea Party doesn’t make any inroads. The establishment of both parties loves the arrangement they have now and doesn’t want to see any changes.

    • c4pfan

      Not sure about that.  Seems that Rove was at some CO today that is pro Romney.

      • mark1955

        That means absolutely nothing. All that is is a “Smokescreen”. Rove and the Bushies have to make atleast a token public show of support for MITTEN’S.If Rove and the Bush’s overtly tried to destroy MITTEN’S,they would be finished. Rove’s appearance at a MITTEN’S event is nothing but a Charade. Rove’s entire reason for existence in his mind,is to serve the wishes of the Bush crime family.To him it is his whole reason for taking up space on this earth and the Bush’s want anyone one or thing that gets in Jebbies for 2016 swept aside.The whole reason for the Bush’s and GOPe setting the stage for a MITTEN’S nomination,was so he would lose to Obama, thereby protecting Jebbies place in line. They didn’t plan on MITTEN’S actually catching fire like he has.Rove and the Bush family,are putting up a public show of support for MITTEN’S,but behind the scenes are working feverishly to destroy anyone who will get in Jebbies way. They are Insane!

      That tells me alot more about Obama’s REAL lack of popularity, than any of these phony push polls,including Rassmussen ( A subsidiary of the Bush crime family ), which are showing the election close If Obama pulls this out,it is due strictly to massive voter fraud. This past April during the celebration of the 100 anniversary of the Boston Red Sox’s Fenway Park, Obama gave a pre-recorded tribute on the the scoreboard. He was also roundly booed. That’s here in Boston,Massachusetts the capital of liberal land. As i said before,if Obama wins,it’s because he cheated.

      I saw some tweets of his speech, but hadn’t seen it. Thanks for sharing the link. I’ll  have to watch it. I certainly hope he decides to run for governor again in 2014. Although we need someone good to go up against Durbin in the Senate, I think Andrezjewski would be better as a governor. I really appreciate that, even though he didn’t win in 2010, he’s still made it his goal to make government more transparent and to show the corruption in both parties.

    huh…??? wonder what Sullivan’s definition of a conservative is???
    IMHO…he has the wrong guy about ripped-off mask —————

    ‘ “The big elephant in the room is that the Mitt Romney that showed up on October 3rd was like an alien that ripped off his mask and said, ‘I’m brand new now,’” said Sullivan, editor of “The Dish” at The Daily Beast. “He has evolutionary ideology, like he still has evolving doctrines.”

    Sullivan, a self-identified conservative who supports President Obama and has criticized Romney regularly, called Romney a candidate who “has no core at all and has changed it a dozen times to appeal to whatever market share he’s appealing to.” ‘

    US Muslims could be a critical voting bloc
    By Jim Lobe

    “WASHINGTON – With Barack Obama and Mitt Romney virtually tied with Election Day less than two weeks away, Muslim voters could play an unexpected critical role in deciding the outcome November 6.

    A poll of 500 registered Muslim voters released here Wednesday found that more than two-thirds (68%) currently plan to vote for Obama and only 7% for Romney. But a surprisingly large 25% said they were still undecided between the two main party candidates.

    And tens of thousands of those undecided voters are disproportionately concentrated in three “swing” states -Ohio, Virginia and Florida ….” ……

    “The Muslim vote could be decisive in several battleground states,” said Naeem Baig, chairman of the American Muslim Taskforce on Civil Rights and Elections (AMT)…..”

    …. “Historically, Muslim Americans have been split in their voting behavior, but in the 2000 election 72% voted for George W Bush primarily because his campaign met at length with Muslim organizations…”

    ….. “Like the general public, he noted, Muslims have also been disappointed by the president’s performance on the economy and reducing unemployment. ”

    …. ” Qatar’s ascent to the world stage in recent years represents one of the most important trends in Middle East affairs. On the surface, the tiny emirate’s rise to international prominence occurred as a result of its energy prowess and strategic alliance with the United States and other critical US allies in the Middle East. This assessment is incomplete. Indeed, Qatar is a member of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries. Qatar is also a member of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), the association of pro-US Arab monarchies that includes Saudi Arabia, and the Arab League.

    Like its GCC partners, Qatar plays a critical role toward advancing US strategic military objectives in the Middle East. Qatar is host to the forward headquarters for US Central Command (USCENTCOM), including key military installations such as Camp al-Sayliyah and al-Udeid Air Base. Qatari soil serves as the largest prepositioning base for US forces outside of the United States.

    Qatar’s role as a base for US military forces has proved indispensible toward executing and sustaining the US-led wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and other military operations in the region. Qatar would be instrumental in any potential US attack against China’s ally Iran. ” ….. “Qatar is a leading proponent of the militant Salafist and Wahhabi ideologies that have helped guide al-Qaeda-style radical Islamists. A onetime vocal proponent of the Palestinian cause, Qatar also hosted an Israeli trade office before shutting it down in response to Israel’s invasion of Gaza in 2008. It also was widely criticized for its alleged exploitation of al-Jazeera to advance its foreign policy goals. ”

    Hamas aims Grad at Dimona reactor – payback for Khartoum raid

    “Palestinian rocket teams early Sunday, Oct. 28, fired Grad missiles as target finders against Israel’s nuclear reactor in Dimona. This is reported exclusively by debkafile. They exploded on open ground in the Ramat Negev district southwest of the town of Dimona.

    The nuclear plant is only 42.5 kilometers as the crow flies from the southern Gaza Strip. Saturday night, the Israeli Air Force struck a Palestinian rocket team in the southern Gaza town of Khan Younes, killing one Hamas operative and injuring a second critically.

    The Palestinian Hamas has evidently launched a new and expanded targeting-policy marking two developments of grave import:

    One: Its rulers have submitted the Gaza Strip to Tehran for use as its southern operational arm against Israel, complementing Hizballah’s pivotal role to the north of Israel; and

    two, having acquired improved surface missiles, Hamas is setting its sights firmly on the most sensitive locations within their reach, e.g., Israel’s nuclear reactor and air force bases and the American X-band radar station in the Negev.

    The Islamist rulers of Gaza are expected to keep on trying to perfect their aim. Israel’s defense ministry and high IDF command sounded at sea Sunday over this dangerous new departure. ……”

    Firelight…..just returned from a friend who has drunk the BHO kool-aid…
    in sharing with her my perspective, she asked for a few articles of the “real” BHO…she’s very sincere and wants to know the truth (husband conservative, but who listens to his/her spouse..)

    She believes BHO is for the middle class & for jobs. I don’t get why so asking for assistance.
    She’s not a reader per se, so one maybe two brief (emphasis) articles and maybe one youtube video may be helpful. I stressed if the top ballot bothers her consider conservative selections down ballot. To boot her husband is ex-mormon.

    Unfortunately, my resources may not be simple enough to get to bottomline in a short amount of time. Any suggestions would be helpful.

    Thanks!
