AP Confuses Criticism of Obama With ‘Racial Slurs’

Proving that the left cannot tell the difference between “racism” and “criticism,” the AP posted a lengthy March 30 storyconfusing and conflating the two as it pertains to attacks on President Obama. As far as the AP is concerned it seems the whole country is running around with burning crosses and wearing pointy hoods aiming to cast racial epithets at Obama at every turn. It may as well still be the year 1860 around here.

New York Times Killed Stories of Obama’s Links to Vote Fraud/ACORN During Campaign

According to election fraud lawyer Heather Heidelbaugh, The New York Times decided suddenly to drop all efforts last October to publish stories about the Association for Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) because it came to light that ACORN was a big donor to then presidential candidate Barack Obama’s campaign. The Times is said to have told ACORN insider Anita Moncrief that they were dropping the story because it was a “game changer” for the election and might hurt Obama’s campaign.

Al Gore Still Not Current On His Reporters

Maybe this global warming thing has him stretched thin. Maybe he figures his mission to save millions of lives outweigh the lives of two of his own. Maybe he knows his intervention might just make matters worse. Maybe the North Koreans could give a damn about Al Gore.

Obama’s “Change” is Spelled P-O-V-E-R-T-Y

Among those whom I detest the most in this world are people who insist that they know better than I what I should eat, drink and smoke. Whenever they get in a position of power, they cannot wait to impose higher taxes on everything I enjoy and, by extension, things that millions of other Americans enjoy as well.

National socialism works pretty well for some

imageForced national socialism worked pretty well for Hermann Goering, next in line to Adolf Hitler, during the life of the Third Reich.  (Left: Shots of his palatial home - ‘Carinhall’ - in its heyday as Goering’s retreat from his taxing duties in Berlin and abroad.)

Interestingly, Amb. Jos. P. Kennedy and many in Chamberlain’s cabinet felt they could do business with such a moderate Nazi as Goering, who both demonstrated and pursued such liberal tastes and mores as participating in the 1923 Munich putsch with Hitler, where he was severely wounded; serving as the Minister President of Prussia; directing the Prussian State Police; assisting in the formation of the Gestapo; aiding in the assembly of documents asserting the guilt of the SA and participating in gathering names for the hit lists for the Night of the Long Knives; ordering Himmler and Heydrich to undertake the Final Solution; picking up a considerable addiction for morphine and percodan due to the number of and the intensity of his duties; designing his own and wide array of uniforms, from pure white and sky blue, to deep blue, with the brilliant trappings and its many medals of his own construction, as head of the Luftwaffe; as an avid deer hunter;  and dressing up as a Roman emperor in white and deep purple togas, sporting laurel wreaths, while wearing rouge and a strong cologne of his own mixture while entertaining visiting heads of state, ambassadors, and roving dignitaries while serving as host during many lavish parties at his home.
