Recent scandals tying Barack Obama to government bullying for political gain will not be big news to Gibson Guitar or Boeing Company.
On Aug. 24, 2011, the Obama DOJ sent ARMED agents into the Gibson Guitar factory in Memphis. The CEO of Gibson is a conservative.
Because fighting the case would have cost millions and taken a long time, he and his company agreed to pay a $300,000 penalty, forfeit claims to about $262,000 worth of wood seized by federal agents and contribute $50,000 to theNational Fish and Wildlife Foundation to promote the conservation of protected tree species.
The CEO asked the same question others would like answered. If Gibson was violating some EPA regulation or other, wouldn’t some human contact or maybe a letter or something have been appropriate BEFORE armed agents swarmed in and … oh, I dunno … put PEOPLE out of WORK?
A few weeks later, the Obama administration squared off against Boeing for … get this … creating thousands of jobs building the world’s most fuel-efficient commercial jet.
Obama’s National Labor Relations Board said Boeing had no right to move to a “right-to-work” state, just because the union had made it impossible for them to continue doing business in the Seattle area.
An Obama appointee actually demanded that a judge ORDER Boeing to move back to Washington! The NLRB complaint was eventually dropped, but not before the union got itself a pretty compensation package out of the deal. And you KNOW who the unions support.
This is a really GOOD video about why LIBERALS should start paying attention to CONSERVATIVES. It’s not hostile AT ALL. Just really good, really loving and really true.

Excerpts from http://www.americanthinker.com/2013/05/the_end_of_the_obama_illusion.html
The Associated Press, whose newsroom and reporters’ personal phone line records were secretly subpoenaed, is collectively owned by members of the mainstream media. As the largest newsgathering organization in the country, it stands for media freedom itself in their minds.
An attack on it is an attack on them.
The love they offered Obama all those years has not been reciprocated. The illusion of Obama the godlike light-bringer, the man who could bring us together, has dissolved into an uncomfortable, soon to be angry, memory.
And therein lies serious peril for President Obama.
The problem is that not only is Obama a liar; he is a phony. And bit by bit, the evidence is becoming clearer to more and more of the people who were taken in.
Once upon a time, Barack Obama rode as high as a politician can get, at least as the big media portrayed him. It’s a long way down.
NOBODY DIED BECAUSE OF WATERGATE.
FOUR AMERICANS DIED IN BENGHAZI.
U.S. military forces were ordered repeatedly to “stand down” during the hours-long September 2012 terrorist attack against the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi. Military personnel were ready willing and able to go. The Pentagon has consistently denied that it issued any “stand down” orders. Two of them violated direct orders and went anyway, saving many lives and losing their own in the fire fight.
According to former Ambassador Ann Wagner, THE ONLY PERSON WHO HAD THE AUTHORITY TO ORDER A STAND DOWN WAS BARACK OBAMA.
- Q. Who gives such an order, to stand down?
- A. The President of the United States.

P.S. I think Jay Clownie is not only a brilliant political cartoon, but a fantastic photoshop. Yesterday, WH Press Secretary Jay Carney was forced to play the part of rodeo clown, trying to distract the press bulls from the matador. Carney-Clownie’s makeup photoshop is flawless, even behind his glasses! And the combo of Barack “Never Forget I’m BLAAAAACK” Obama whispering in the ear of a white guy in white face is just pure genius.

Am I an overachiever,or what?
Withholder is testifying right now.He’s denying knowing anything about anything,as expected.He and his boss will deny everything and pretty much get away with it.Neither could ever be impeached because they’re black.It will be interesting to see how many dems run as far away as they can before 2014.
YO,GOSNELL…BEFORE YOU HEAD OFF TO THE SLAM,THERE’S A MINOR SURGICAL PROCEDURE WE NEED TO PERFORM.IT WON’T HURT (US) A BIT!

There was so much in yesterday’s melee,I thought I’d do a separate post with a video of the entire meeting(it is delicious) and small bits from some people who NEVER say anything bad about Barky.It got so bad yesterday I decided to rename the spokesweenie from Cornhole to Jay Carnage.It just seemed to fit.
The Obama White House is claiming they knew nuthink! IOW, it’s a kind of bad news/good news thing.
- Bad news: The Obama White House is not only incompetent, but it’s also corrupt.
- Good news: The Obama White House is totally incompetent at corruption.
WH spokesman Jay Carney shamefully diminished the lives lost in Benghazi by calling it a “political circus,” then blamed Fox News for the AP scandal (huh?) and finally spun into yet another bout of channeling the famous “I know nutthink!” Hans Schultz from Hogan’s Heroes.
Tweeters listed things Jay Carney might actually know:
- How many ways there are to rearrange and repeat the same words in a sentence full of lies.
- How to look both contemplative & constipated.
- That Robert Gibbs totally snookered him when he told him this job was “fun” and “easy.”
- That if he plays ball, he can count on Democrats to reward him with a cushy job somewhere else.
Methinks this tweeter nailed it on the head about what Jay Carney knows:
The IRS has admitted it really did harass groups with the words “Tea Party” or “Patriot” in their names.
One victim says, “They wanted a synopsis of all the books we read! I thought, I don’t have time to write a book report. You can read them for yourselves.”
Then, she mailed them copies of The Constitution and The Five Thousand Year Leap.
That part is kinda funny. This next part is way not funny at all.
Among information the IRS demanded were lists of names and addresses of members, donors and volunteers, as well as member access to website pages.
This info was then turned over BY the Internal Revenue Service TO a left-wing political organization funded by self-proclaimed hater of all things Republican George Soros.
ELECTION FRAUD: Two Democrats have been convicted of forging multiple pages of election petitions in order to got Barack Obama on the state’s presidential ballot in 2008. Under Indiana law, Obama needed 500 signatures from each of the state’s nine congressional districts.
His petition from the 2nd Congressional district had 534 signatures; 90 names were fake. In other words, Obama’s name had no right to appear on the ballot.
DOJ: The Obama Justice Department secretly subpoenad two months worth of AP phone records for 100 journalists and editors who work on stories about the government, thereby exposing confidential sources and whistleblowers.
Justice Department rules require that subpoenas of records of news organizations must be personally approved by the attorney general, Eric Holder, who is an Obama appointee. The Justice Department has offered no explanation for the seizure.
Although Barack Obama made promises about protecting whistleblowers, his administration has PROSECUTED more whistleblowers than ALL PREVIOUS PRESIDENTS COMBINED.
SO … anybody still think I’m a Tin-Foil Hat Whack Job because I believe with all my heart that Barack Obama FORGED his birth certificates?

H/t Pistol Pete’s Grudge Report
Kermit Gosnell has been convicted of three counts of first-degree murder for the killing of three babies born alive at his grimy abortion clinic. Prosecutors agreed to two life sentences without parole in exchange for Gosnell surrendering his right to appeal.
The media did their best to ignore the trial and its grisly testimony on behalf of their man Barack, who has long been an advocate of murdering live-born abortion survivors.
FOUR TIMES, Barack Obama has voted against providing care to live-born babies [1:00]
But formerly pro-choice advocates who heard the Gosnell testimony and saw the images report they changed their minds after getting a good look at what abortion really is … the cold-bloody murder of innocent children. The Left would love it if we’d buy their lie that Gosnell was unique. He’s not.
