Define “Everyone”

obama scratching head

President Obama was quoted as saying, “If you want to be president, you have to work for everyone.” I was wondering, does “everyone” include:

The “bitter clingers” of the midwest?

The non-union plant workers of Delphi?

The voters who don’t vote for the right guy?

The shops who don’t support the right right candidate?

The donors who don’t write the correct name on the pay line?

The states that know how to manage their finances?

The followers of any religion or just the ones that get violent?

    When I heard BHO spouting this crap trying to make hay of Romney’s clumsy comments I literally nearly become physically ill. NO President in history has been more rigid and divisive.

    Obama DESPISES the successful. He HATES fiscal conservatives. Frankly, he probably hates whites. You know-“typical, white persons.”

    He is an unusually good liar, I’ll give him that.

          I do agree with him. He is right on the money. However, it’s how he said it that the left is picking at.

          Romney is correct. Everyone knows it.

    Home­land Secu­rity:
    A New Royal Guard?

    Some, including this writer, are increas­ingly con­cerned that the Depart­ment of Home­land Secu­rity (DHS) is mor­phing into a kind of royal guard that would be loyal only to the Admin­is­tra­tion. Orig­i­nally tasked with fighting exter­nally orig­i­nated ter­rorism, DHS has slowly remade itself into an internal secu­rity force. It has infil­trated vir­tu­ally all forms of travel within the U.S.:
    Air, rail, bus and even freeway check­points. It is asserting its authority over major sporting events and other large venues.

    It is esti­mated that there are in excess of 270 mil­lion privately-owned firearms in the United States. The rate of sat­u­ra­tion is approx­i­mately 88.8 firearms per 100 people. In con­trast, total weapons among the nation’s police force number upwards of 897,000.

    If every policeman fired his weapon 1,000 times per year (99.99 per­cent for pro­fi­ciency training), then entire force would require 897 mil­lion rounds of ammu­ni­tion. Let’s round it up to an even 1 bil­lion rounds of ammu­ni­tion – for all the police forces across America.

    Why do non-military fed­eral agen­cies (who answer directly to the Pres­i­dent) feel that they also need to acquire well over 1 bil­lion rounds of ammu­ni­tion by then end of 2012? Why does the Social Secu­rity Admin­is­tra­tion heed 174,000 rounds? Or the National Oceanic and Atmos­pheric Admin­is­tra­tion, 46,000 rounds? About one bil­lion rounds will go to DHS.

    The majority of the Administration’s pur­chases, including for DHS, are for copper-jacketed hollow point bul­lets. According to Major Gen­eral Jerry Curry (USA (Ret.), “Hollow point bul­lets are so lethal that the Geneva Con­ven­tion does not allow their use on the battle field in time of war. Hollow point bul­lets don’t just stop or hurt people, they pen­e­trate the body, spread out, frag­ment and cause max­imum damage to the body’s organs. Death often fol­lows.” (emphasis added)

    So, the Admin­is­tra­tion is stocking up on lethal ammu­ni­tion to use in the U.S., that even the mil­i­tary doesn’t use in Afghanistan or Iraq? This type of ammu­ni­tion is never used for training pur­poses, by the way, because training ammo is much cheaper.

    Gen­eral Curry fur­ther writes,

    “We have enough mil­i­tary forces to main­tain law and order in the U.S. even during times of civil unrest.

    “We have local police, backed up by each state’s National Guard, backed up by the Depart­ment of Defense. So in addi­tion to all these forces why does DHS need its own pri­vate army? Why do the SSA, NOAA and other gov­ern­ment agen­cies need to create their own civilian secu­rity forces armed with hollow nose bullets?

    “Were I the JCS, and if I wasn’t already fully briefed on this matter, I’d stop the pur­chase of hollow point bul­lets, ask the sec­re­tary of Defense why all this ammu­ni­tion is being pur­chased and spread around the country? If I got answers like the ones Con­gress got during the inves­ti­ga­tion of Oper­a­tion Fast and Furious – I’d start tracking all ammu­ni­tion deliv­eries nation­wide to find out what orga­ni­za­tions and units are using them, for what pur­pose and, if it is not con­sti­tu­tional, pre­pare to coun­teract what­ever it is that they are doing”. (emphasis added)

    Is the DHS indeed building its own pri­vate army? If so, for what pur­pose? We already have more than ade­quate defense between mil­i­tary and national guard units in every state. Does DHS have a dif­ferent loy­alty than the mil­i­tary or local police forces?

    Is this the answer to Obama’s 2008 cam­paign state­ment that “We cannot con­tinue to rely on our mil­i­tary in order to achieve the national secu­rity objec­tives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national secu­rity force that’s just as pow­erful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

    I fully agree that Con­gress should imme­di­ately inves­ti­gate Fed­eral stock­piling of lethal ammu­ni­tion, and when the stonewalling begins, don’t let it turn into another black hole, like it has with Oper­a­tion Fast and Furious.

    $35 million Hawaii estate regarded as possible Obama retirement home

    Are Obama insiders secretly making retirement plans for the Obamas with the expectation the president will lose his bid for re-election in November?

    Very quietly,

    Obama’s chief financier, Penny Pritzker, has entered the Hawaii housing market to buy a retirement home for the president and his family that will be available not in 2016, but in January 2013, according to a confidential source within Pritzker’s Chicago organization.

    Pritzker, a wealthy Chicago business executive and heiress to the Hyatt Hotels fortune, served as national finance chairman for Obama’s 2008 campaign and is the co-chairman of his 2012 effort.

    The source told WND that highly confidential internal polls conducted by the Obama campaign indicate Obama cannot win re-election, despite public surveys that show him in the lead.

    “The public polls are mostly political,” the source argued. “Obama radicals want Romney supporters to feel discouraged and give up. Truth is that Romney’s winning.”

    After nearly four years of this foolish, amateurish, regime, a proper name for this most incompetent of all administrations has come to the fore. Alas, it was there all the time, but for one reason or another, being called racist being most prominent, was not applied when it has been quite appropriate. Let us record this era, in the life of our country, sadly, from this time forward, as the time of “The Black Plague”.

    By James Eng,
    NBC News

    At least two recent incidents in which empty chairs were hung from trees by rope have critics decrying what they say are racially offensive displays meant to symbolize the “lynching” of President Barack Obama.

    In Austin, Texas, a homeowner hung an empty folding chair from a tree branch in front of his house and later attached an American flag to it. He reportedly told a Democratic political blogger who inquired about it: “You can take [your concerns] and go straight to hell and take Obama with you.”

    In Centreville, Va., an empty chair with a sign reading “Nobama” was strung from a tree in or near a park. “In short, this appears to be a crude metaphor for the lynching of President Obama,” wrote the blogger who posted the photo.

    The image of an empty chair has been associated with Obama ever since Clint
    Eastwood’s headline-grabbing, non-conformist speech at the Republican National Convention three weeks ago in Tampa, Fla. The 82-year-old actor-director talked to an empty chair as if the Democratic president were sitting in it, criticizing and mocking the “invisible Obama” for 12 minutes.

    “When somebody doesn’t do the job, you’ve got to let them go,”
    Eastwood said before making a throat-slashing gesture.
