America, You Asked For It!

Political News and Commentary from the Right

Just who are the President’s pals?

Do you remember when the President couldn’t say enough good things about ACORN? Of course, that’s where he got his start. He worked for these people, he trained these people, he is one of these people.

He invited this crooked, corrupt organization into the White House, saw to it they will get millions from the “stimulus”, and even contracted with them to help with next year’s census.

Who are they? Watch this.

It took this video coming out to get the Census Bureau to sever ties with these criminals, but remember, Obama always has been and always will be one of them.

Union Thugs Beat Black Conservative at MO Town Hall

UPDATE–Carnahan staffer arrested at St Louis town hall
UPDATE–St. Louis Tea Party plans to protest union violence


Union thugs wearing SEIU t-shirts beat black conservative activist at St. Louis town hall meeting

From #TCOT Report

Eyewitness account of union thugs beating black conservative activist

August 6, 2009
St. Louis, Missouri

I am a friend of Kenneth Gladney, who was attacked this evening at the Russ Carnahan town hall meeting. I was at the town hall meeting as well. I witnessed the entire melee. Kenneth was approached by a SEIU representative as Kenneth was handing out “Don’t Tread on Me” flags to other conservatives. The SEIU representative demanded to know why a black man was handing out the “Don’t Tread on Me” flags. The SEIU member then used a racial slur against Kenneth, then punched him in the face. Kenneth fell to the ground. Another yelled racial epithets at Kenneth as he kicked him. Kenneth was also brutally attacked by two other men who are SEIU members and an unidentified woman. The three men were clearly SEIU members, as they were wearing t-shirts with the SEIU logo.

They punched Kenneth in the face and kicked him in the back and his head numerous times. Mr. Gladney was beaten badly. One assailant fled on foot. Three others were arrested. Kenneth is currently at St. John’s Mercy Hospital being treated for his many injuries. Mr. Gladney was merely expressing his freedom of speech by handing out flags. He in no way provoked anything, as evidenced by the fact that three people were arrested. We hope that Ken recovers from these injuries, however he is in great pain at this time. I am Mr. Gladney’s friend and attorney. We will be pursuing legal action at our disposal. This was a truly senseless hate crime carried out by racist union thugs.

Mr. Gladney is a tea party supporter and conservative activist, although he subscribes to no particular political party. We are calling on the SEIU, Representative Carnhan, and President Obama to condemn the racist actions of these thugs. In the days to come, we will be investigating who these thugs actually work for and how strong their alliances to other various left-wing organizations may be.

We hope the St. Louis Tea Party and Tea Party organizations around the country will protest the SEIU offices in every major city across America to expose the These strongarm actions must stop.

Regards,
David B. Brown

Remember, these thugs represent the organization that virtually resides in the White House and advise President Obama on nearly every form of policy. Free speech under attack, freedom of assembly met with brutal attacks by left-wing thugs, the President calling on his left-wing allies to turn in those with whom he disagrees. Is this the change America voted for?

Democratic Rep. “Cold Cash” Jefferson Convicted!

Yesterday, former Louisiana Representative William “Cold Cash” Jefferson “was convicted of 11 of 16 counts, including bribery, racketeering and money laundering.”  The charges stemmed from an investigation that culminated in FBI agents finding $90,000 in cash stored in Jefferson’s freezer.

Sentencing is scheduled for October 30, but Jefferson’s attorney has stated they will appeal the verdict.

Dodd and Obama: Corrupt Birds of a Feather

by Michelle Malkin at Townhall.com

Everything you need to know about false Hope and Change can be found in one picture: the image of President Obama embracing embattled Sen. Chris Dodd.

The troubled Democrat is in deep over his sweetheart Countrywide home-loan deals, corporate bailout cash and crony associations. New revelations by Countrywide whistleblower Robert Feinberg confirm what more and more of Dodd’s constituents in Connecticut are coming to realize: He’s a lying weasel.

Dodd denied knowledge of the special treatment the subprime mortgage company had given him and Senate Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad on home loans. (Dodd’s were worth more than $800,000.) Feinberg flatly contradicted him in secret testimony on the Hill this week.

Does Marion Berry (AR-01) Accept Federal Farm Subsidies?

So which is it, Congressman? View the following video and referenced articles to find the truth! Marion Berry has long denied that he owns any farms that accept subsidies, yet his response to a question on the topic yesterday seems to contradict this. And the data shows “slick” Berry is may seem more dim witted with age but he has been more than smart enough to fleece the public for years.

  • Blue Dog Berry – Not so Blue With Farm SubsidyKen Cook at Mulch reports: Blue Dogs Are Big Winners In Subsidy-Laden Farm Bill . . .
  • Arkansas Rep. Marion Berry (D) Cashing In on Federal Service . . . receives farm subsidies . . . – Consider if you will, between 1996 and 2000, farm and land-holding companies that Berry owns with relatives in eastern Arkansas have received $750,449 in federal crop subsidies, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture records. . .
  • The Other King of Pork — AR Representative Marion Berry – Congressman Marion Berry (D-AR) promises more pork barrel spending now that the Democrats are in charge of Congress. This is no surprise. Last year, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette wrote, “Arkansas’ Rep. Marion Berry would like to be known as the king of pork. “Nothing would please me more,” he says. . . .

    Obama Protects Cronies at Taxpayers’ Expense

    by David Limbaugh on Townhall.com

    The more we learn about the White House’s summary firing of AmeriCorps’ inspector general, Gerald Walpin, the more it smells of lawlessness, cronyism and a flagrant disregard for transparency and government accountability.

    Remember President Barack Obama’s commitment to oversee the expenditure of taxpayer funds to avoid waste and inefficiency — to the point that he deputized Vice President “Mean” Joe Biden as the executive enforcer?

    That was then. This is now. As has proved customary with this administration, the walk has not matched the talk. Biden’s casual admissions that the administration “guessed wrong” and that money has been wasted don’t begin to describe the fiscal recklessness and corruption that define this White House.

    Dem’s to investigate Sosa, not ACORN

    You gotta love this.

    Democrats in the US House, whose leader is the lying Nancy Pelosi, plan to investigate Sammy Sosa for lying to them about steroid use.  They won’t investigate ACORN for using taxpayer dollars to fund their fraudulent registration of voters, because the activities of the ACORN criminals help get Democrats elected.

    Not that I’m endorsing steroid use, or lying under oath, but come on.  Which should have priority–a lying baseball player, or the habitual criminal misuse of taxpayer funds?

    Sign the petition to stop taxpayer funding of ACORN here.

    Sign the petition demand a federal investigation into ACORN here.

    Petition: Stop taxpayer funding of ACORN!

    Representative Michele Bachmann (R-MN) is collecting signatures on her petition to stop the Democrats’ political payoff in subsidizing the criminal organization ACORN.  Under investigation for voter fraud in 14 states, the  Democratic leadership in Congress refuses to investigate its criminal activities that were funded by taxpayer dollars, because ACORN has illegally been instrumental in getting Democrats elected to office.

    Please sign her petition now!

    A company owned by a nephew of Rep. John Murtha reportedly received $4 million in no-bid contracts from the Defense Department last year for “logistical support.”

    Murtha, D-Pa., is chairman of the House Appropriations defense subcommittee.

    Murtech Inc., based on Glen Burnie, Md., is owned by the congressman’s nephew Robert C. Murtha Jr., who told the Post the company provides “necessary logistical support” to Pentagon testing programs, “and that’s about as far as I feel comfortable going.”

    Former Democratic Fundraiser to Plead Guilty in New York City

    From FoxNews

    The 58-year-old Norman Hsu was indicted in 2007 on charges of cheating investors of at least $20 million in what prosecutors say was a huge Ponzi scheme

    Former top Democratic fundraiser Norman Hsu has told a federal judge in Manhattan he will plead guilty to 10 counts of wire and mail fraud.

    The 58-year-old Hsu (CHOO’) was indicted in 2007 on charges of cheating investors of at least $20 million in what prosecutors say was a huge Ponzi scheme. He had been scheduled to go on trial Monday.

    The government also says he made illegal donations to politicians including Hillary Clinton. Her Senate campaign later returned money linked to him.

    Prosecutors say he pressured his victims to contribute to political candidates as a way to raise his public profile so he could attract more investors.

    Hsu has been jailed since he was arrested in 2007.
