Senate Democrats Warmly Welcome Illegal Aliens

Senator Durbin wants to give legal status to law breakers
Washington DC, Jun 30, 2011. The U.S. Senate is currently holding hearings on Sen. Dick Durbin's, D-IL, "Dream Act" that would provide legal status for many people who violated our immigration laws.

Despite these people being criminals, who clearly violated the laws that Congress wrote, the are now using them to openly testify at these hearings.

These illegal aliens are participating in these hearings without any threat of arrest from the nation’s chief immigration law enforcement official who was sitting in the front row: Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, D-AZ.

Many of the illegal immigrants were recognized by name by Sen. Dick Durbin who led the panel, and commended by Obama administration officials who want to give them legal status under sweeping legislation under his DREAM Act.

The DREAM Act would give permanent legal status to illegal immigrants, up to age 35, who arrived in the United States before age 16, provided they complete two years of college or serve two years in the military.

“The young people who would be eligible for the DREAM Act call themselves dreamers,” Durbin said. “Over the years, I have met hundreds of these dreamers, and hundreds of them are here today,” Durbin continued.

Durbin watches, as Obama signs "Fair Sentencing Bill"
Durbin introduced about a half dozen of the illegal immigrants by name and asked them to stand, as he told their story of how they were brought into the country illegally by their parents.

Although they had attended U.S. schools, Durbin said they could either not get jobs or faced problems pursing higher education because of their illegal status.

“Let me ask everyone here today who is a DREAM Act student to stand and be recognized,” Durbin said.

Nearly everyone in the audience stood. “Thank you so much for being here,” Durbin said.

Since the Democrats so warmly regard these law breakers, it begs the question as to why they voted for our current immigration law when they had huge majorities in both houses? If they felt these laws are unfair, then why did they pass them? If they didn't like the laws they wrote, then why didn't they repeal them when they had those super majorities?

Illegal Aliens don't feel they have done anything wrong
One can only assume they passed tough laws to help win elections, because they knew it was exactly what their constituents wanted.

Then they ignore their own laws, and actively work to undermine them in an effort to expand their voter base by making these people who violated our law into legal residents.

It's not a big leap to guess their next step will be to give them voting rights.
Is this the change you were expecting?

Barack Obama Loses Badly in new Spin Cycle Straw Poll; Charles Manson Wins big, carrying "Lesser Evil" Vote!

A clear landslide for Charles Manson, Serial Killer
NYC, Jun 28, 2011. President Barack Hussein Obama, D-Kenya, lost in a landslide when paired against convicted serial killer Charles Manson in the latest Spin Cycle Straw Poll.

Roughly 90% of those voting selected Charles Manson as their choice when faced with a head to head race between Obama and Manson.

This does not bode well for President Obama's reelection hopes. If he cannot beat a serial killer, then even Sarah Palin would have an easy time defeating him at the polls.

Manson beat the President by a stunning  9 to 1 margin, proving that the Democrats do not have a lock on the "prison vote" as they had previously assumed. Normally, the felon vote goes heavily Democratic in elections.

Our election experts tell us that while most criminals prefer Democrat candidates, due to their strong support for criminals rights, they also object to Obama's policy of making our nation weaker and devaluing our currency.

One convicted armed robber told us "I work hard in the prison laundry for fourteen cents an hour. Thanks to this Kenyan dope, my fourteen cents an hour is only worth nine cents now. In the real world of prison life, this means fewer cigarettes for the same hours worked.

Manson 89.3%     Obama 10.7%
In a previous straw poll, where the President was paired against 9 potential Republican nominees, Obama only got 3% of the vote.

This indicates that Obama does much better when running against a serial killer than when running against a Republican. But in either case, he loses badly.

The Spin Cycle will continue to offer these straw polls as a public service until the election next November.

Former Illinois Democrat Governor.... GUILTY as charged!

Chicago, Jun 27, 2011.  Former Governor Rod Blagojevich, D-IL, was convicted today of a wide range of corruption charges, including the allegation that he tried to sell or trade President Barack Obama’s Senate seat.

The verdict was a huge defeat for Blagojevich, who had spent over two years professing his innocence on reality TV shows and later on the witness stand.

He now faces up to 300 years in prison, although federal sentencing guidelines are sure to reduce his time behind bars.

The verdict capped a spectacle in which Blagojevich became famous for blurting on a recorded phone call that appointing Obama’s successor to the Senate was "f---ing golden" and that he wouldn’t let it go "for f---ing nothing."

Blagojevich, who has been free on bond since shortly after his arrest, becomes the second straight Illinois governor convicted of corruption. His predecessor, George Ryan, is now serving 6½ years in federal prison.

The case exploded into scandal when Blagojevich was awakened by federal agents on Dec. 9, 2008, at his Chicago home and was led away in handcuffs. Federal prosecutors had been investigating his administration for years, and some of his closest cronies had already been convicted.

"The conduct would make Lincoln roll over in his grave," U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald said before a bank of television cameras after the arrest.

The Blagojevitch haircut was inspired by Lego Man
Blagojevich, who was also accused of shaking down businessmen for campaign contributions, was swiftly impeached and removed from office.

The verdict provided affirmation to Fitzgerald, one of the nation’s most prominent prosecutors, who had condemned Blagojevich’s dealings as a "political crime spree."

Fitzgerald pledged to retry the governor after the first jury deadlocked on all but the least serious of 24 charges against him.

This time, the 12 jurors voted to convict the 54-year-old Blagojevich on 17 of 20 counts after deliberating nine days. He also faces up to five additional years in prison for his previous conviction of lying to the FBI.

Blagojevich was acquitted of soliciting bribes in the alleged shakedown of a road-building executive. The jury deadlocked on two charges of attempted extortion related to that executive and funding for a school.

Blagojevitch and Obama are both from the corrupt Chicago machine
Judge James Zagel has barred Blagojevich from traveling outside the area without permission. A hearing for sentencing was set for Aug. 1.

Federal guidelines and previous sentences meted out to other corrupt Illinois politicians suggest Blagojevich could get around 10 years in prison. 

But judges have enormous discretion and can factor in a host of variables, including whether a defendant took the stand and lied. Prosecutors have said that Blagojevich did just that.

After his arrest, Blagojevich called federal prosecutors "cowards and liars" and challenged Fitzgerald to face him in court if he was "man enough."

The jury was unable to reach a verdict on another charge... whether he wears a toupee. 

The jury foreman told us "It was a tough call. Sure, it looks like a cheap toupee, but a good toupee would probably look a lot better than that. And considering the amount of money he made from all those bribes... why would he buy a cheap toupee? So its my guess that its probably his own hair."

Dying woman told to remove adult diaper for TSA search

Lena Reppert and her daughter Jean Weber
Jun 26, 2011. Jean Weber, of Destin FL, has filed a complaint with federal authorities over how her elderly mother was treated at Northwest Florida Regional Airport last weekend.

Lena Reppert, 95, was to say her final goodbyes to her daughter before she made what would most likely be her last flight to her native Michigan. After eight years of battling leukemia, doctors say she doesn’t have much time to live.

“She said she wanted to be closer to her grave,” Jean Weber, her daughter said.  “I knew it would probably be the last time I ever see her.” 

The TSA asked Mrs. Reppert, who was in a wheelchair, to remove an adult diaper in order to complete a pat-down search. “It’s something I couldn’t imagine happening on American soil,” Weber said Friday. “Here is my mother, 95 years old, 105 pounds, barely able to stand, and then this.” 

The TSA thoroughly inspects everyone but Moslems
Weber’s mother entered the airport’s security checkpoint in a wheelchair because she was not stable enough to walk through, Weber said.

Wheelchairs trigger certain protocols, including pat-downs and possible swabbing for explosives.

She said her mother was first pulled aside into a glass-partitioned area and patted down.

Then she was taken to another room for a more extensive and invasive search. Weber said she sat outside the room while the TSA was thoroughly inspecting her mother.

She said security personnel then came out and told her they would need for her mother to remove her Depends diaper because it was soiled and was impeding their search. Weber wheeled her mother into a bathroom, removed her diaper and returned. Her mother did not have another clean diaper with her, Weber said.

Reppert eventually made her flight with just two minutes to spare, her daughter said, but the departure was bitter sweet. “It was tough to say goodbye after all of that,” Weber said. “But she’s at peace, and she’s a good Christian woman. They’ll be waiting for her up there in Heaven.”

"I can't make exceptions. Rules are rules"
Weber said she wished there were less invasive search methods for an elderly person who is unable to walk through security gates.

“I don’t understand why they have to put them through that kind of procedure,” she said. The TSA says that the procedures are the same for everyone to ensure national security.

“TSA cannot exempt any group from screening because we know from intelligence that there are terrorists out there that would then exploit that vulnerability,” she said.

Weber filed a complaint through Northwest Florida Regional’s website and she said she plans to file additional complaints next week.

“I’m not one to make waves, but dadgummit, this is wrong. People need to know. Next time it could be you.”

Congressman Alcee Hastings faces ethics charges again

Washington DC. Jun 26, 2011. Alcee Hastins, D-FL, has been charged with sexually harassing a member of his staff.

This is the same Alcee Hastings who was previously a Federal Judge, and who was impeached and removed from the bench for bribe taking, After that, he ran for Congress an won in a heavily black district.

In 1979 Hastings was selected by President Jimmy Carter to fill a vacant seat on the  U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida.

In 1981, Hastings was charged with accepting a $150,000 bribe in exchange for a lenient sentence and a return of seized assets for 21 counts of racketeering by Frank and Thomas Romano, and of perjury in his testimony about the case.

He was acquitted by a jury due to lack of evidence, when his co-conspirator, William Borders, refused to testify in court. Borders received a prison sentence for refusing to testify.

Jimmy Carter appointed Hastings. Bill Clinton pardoned him.
In 1988, the Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives took up the case, and Hastings was impeached for bribery and perjury by a vote of 413-3.

He was then convicted in 1989 by the United States Senate, becoming the sixth federal judge in the history of the United States to be removed from office by the Senate.

Democrat Hastings wanted to get back in to the bribe game, so he ran for Congress in 1992 for a seat representing the heavily black Florida 23rd Congressional District. He was easily elected, and has been reelected four more times by his constituents.

Later, on his last day in office President Bill Clinton, D-AR, issued a full pardon for the convicted corrupt former Federal judge.

Hastings latest ethics problems involve a charge of sexual harassment  by Winsome Packer,one of his staff members, and is currently being investigated by the House Ethics Committee.

Winsome Packer
Ms.Packer alleges that Hastings made repeated unwanted sexual advances and threatened her job when she refused him.

This latest ethics charge  just adds to the long list of ethical problems members of the Congressional Black Caucus have had. There are currently 41 members of congress in the Caucus and they are all Democrats.

Most Black Republicans have refused to join the Black Congressional Caucus, based on the highly partisan nature of the group, despite it's bylaws requiring the group to be "non-partisan." The Black Caucus effectively operates as the activist race baiting squad squad of the Democrat Party.

Of the current members, many have had ethics problems themselves.

Sanford Bishop, D-GA, gave scholarships from the Congressional Black Caucus to ineligible persons, including his stepdaughter, and his niece. Eventually Bishop agreed to repay the scholarship fund for any awards he made in violation of the rules.

Corrine Brown, D-FL, received a questionable $10,000 check from National Baptist Convention leader, and long-time associate, Henry Lyons. Brown confirmed receiving the money but denied she had used the money improperly.

Yvette Clarke, D-NY, was caught lying about her educational background.  Clarke eventually revealed that her prior claims to have graduated from Oberlin College were false. Her campaign website for the  made the statement that she was an alumna and that was repeated in her campaign biography.

William Lacy Clay Jr, D-MO, made improper campaign payments to lobbyists, including his sister Michelle Clay. In 2006 she received $51,800 in consulting fees from her brother's campaign funds, along with an additional $9,963 for reimbursements. In the 2004, Michelle Clay's firm received $52,514 for consulting, and in 2002 Michelle Clay herself was paid $32,00 for campaign management and legal fees.

Jesse Jackson Jr, D-IL. Jackson was one of the people who tried to buy President Obama's vacated Senate seat from Governor Blagojevich.  In 2009, Jackson was listed as one of the 15 most corrupt members of Congress by the liberal Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington for his role in the scandal. 

Are they all crooks? Or just most of them?
John Conyers, D-MI,  used his staff workers as personal servants. Two former aides of  alleged that Conyers used his staff to work on several local and state campaigns, and forced them to baby-sit and chauffeur his children. In late December 2006, Conyers "accepted responsibility" for violating House rules.

In June 1969 Conyers' wife, Monica pled guilty to conspiring to commit bribery. In March 2010 she was sentenced to 37 months imprisonment, followed by two years supervised probation.

Keith Ellison, D-MN, the first Moslem elected to Congress, has had many ethical problems. He has been  reprimanded for unreported contributions, discrepancies in cash balances, and misclassified disbursements.  Ellison also failed to pay all or part of his income taxes in five separate years between 1992 and 2000, forcing the state and IRS to put liens on his home.  

Eddie Bernice Johnson, D-TX. Johnson violated Congressional Black Caucus anti-nepotism rules and awarded scholarship money to four of her relatives and two children of one of her top aide's.

Gregory Meeks, D-NY. Greg Meeks has been investigated by a House ethics committee on loans with New York State Temporary President Malcolm Smith and the local Jamaica Rev. Floyd Flake. Meeks has also been investigated about his mortgage loans to a Guyanese immigrated real estate tycoon.

Gwen Moore, D-WI. Moore's son was arrested in connection with the November 2, 2004, (election day), tire-slashing of Republican party vehicles in Milwaukee; he was charged with a felony in connection with the event on January 24, 2005, but agreed, on January 20, 2006, to plead no contest in exchange for a sentencing recommendation of restitution and probation.

Charlles Rangel, D-NY. Rangel was censured by the House for multiple ethics infractions, including accepting illegal payments and non payment of taxes. He is one of the most corrupt politicians in the history of our Congress.

Bobby Rush, D-IL. A former Black Panther, and militant activist, Rush was arrested, convicted, and served prison time for possession of illegal drugs and weapons prior to being elected to the House. 

Edolphus Towns, D-NY. In 1992, Towns was named in the House banking scandal, having written 408 checks on an overdrawn bank account. 

Maxine Waters, D-CA. Waters' relatives made more than $1 million during by doing business with companies, candidates and causes that Waters had helped. Her husband helped a company get government bond business, and her daughter Karen Waters and son Edward Waters have profited from her connections. Waters replied that "They do their business and I do mine."

President Apologizes for Teleprompter Glitch

Sgt. 1st Class Jared Monti
Washington DC, Jun 25, 2011. Whenever President Barack Hussein Obama, D-Kenya, tries to speak off the cuff, he ends up saying something terribly wrong and ends up having to make an apology.

Or, sometimes his teleprompter just gets it wrong.

That is exacly what  happend last Thursday at Fort Drum, when the president told troops from the 10th Mountain Division that he personally  had given the Medal of Honor to one of their own.

The President said:
"I had the great honor of seeing some of you because a comrade of yours, Jared Monti, was the first person who I was able to award the Medal of Honor to who actually came back and wasn’t receiving it posthumously.” 
The only problem was that his statement was 100% wrong.

Sgt. 1st Class Jared Monti was actually killed in Afghanistan on June 21, 2006, over two years before President Obama was sworn in.  However, in September 2009, President Obama did award Monti the Medal of Honor posthumously.

As part of the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, Sgt. Monti's 16-scout patrol came under fire from as many as 50 insurgents while on a reconnaissance patrol. One soldier was injured in a field, and Sgt. Monti rescued him and called in artillery, but not without being fatally wounded. The soldiers ultimately held their ground.

President Obama today apologized to the family of a Medal of Honor recipient whom he erroneously said was still alive.
"The teleprompter must have gotten it wrong"
An inside source in his administration told the Spin Cycle "This sort of thing always happens whenever the President tries to speak without his teleprompter. Which is why we always tell him to just read the script."

"The President should never ad lib anything. Whenever he does this he ends up saying something stupid."

"Like that time he said we have 57 states, or the time he called Marines 'Corpsemen.' It's just embarrassing for us."

Sgt. Monti's father Paul graciously accepted the President's apology.

On his Facebook page this evening, Monti's father, posted: "FYI- President Barack Obama telephoned me personally this afternoon to apologize for his error in his speech to the 10th mountain division re: Jared's medal ceremony. Apology accepted."

Delta to offer "Jew Free" Flights to Meet Saudi Regulations

Delta will ban Jews from flights to Saudi Arabia
Saudi Arabia, Jun 24, 2011. A partnership between Delta Air Lines and Saudi Arabian Airlines will lead to what critics are calling “Jew-free flights,” with Delta barring passengers who openly identify themselves as Jews or have passports stamped with an Israeli entrance or exit visa.

The two carriers became partners in January, when the government-owned Saudi airline joined SkyTeam, the global alliance that includes Delta and more than a dozen other companies.

But the story broke this week on a blog and has spread to other, more mainstream publications, igniting a controversy and putting Delta officials on the defensive.

Although Jews have traveled to Saudi Arabia for business, anecdotal evidence suggests that the kingdom has withheld visas from travelers with Jewish-sounding names. The country also bans anyone with an Israeli stamp in their passport and, in accordance with strict Islamic law, requires women entering the kingdom to be dressed modestly. In addition, say critics of the partnerships, religious articles unrelated to Islam are banned from Saudi Arabia.

President Obama and close friend King Abdullah
For Delta’s part, a spokesman for the airline said the carrier doesn’t discriminate, nor does it condone discrimination against anyone on the basis of race, nationality, religion or gender.

At the same time, international airlines “are required to comply with all applicable laws governing entry into every country” they serve, according to the spokesman, Trebor Banstetter.

He also noted that those requirements are dictated by the country’s government, not by the airlines, saying, in effect, that such matters are beyond Delta’s control.

President Barack Hussein Obama, D-Kenya, had no comment when asked about the policy of banning Jewish flyers.

UPDATE: Congressman Weiner Back in NYC

Congressman Weiner searching for a rare parking spot in Manhattan
NYC, Jun 23, 2011. Embattled Congressional "member" Anthony Weiner, D-NY, who resigned from the House of Representatives a week ago, has packed up all his things, loaded up his car, left Washington DC, and returned to his home in New York City.

The former Congressman has no definite plans for the future. He did say he wants to still serve his constituents in some way, and he still hasn't ruled out his previously stated plans to run for NYC mayor.

Anthony Weiner ponders his future
He did decline a very generous offer from Fruit of the Loom to be their spokesperson for a new national ad campaign. The deal was rumored to be worth several million dollars.

His wife Huma Abedin has hinted that Anthony "might consider appearing on Dancing With the Stars."

Close friend Elliot Spitzer, disgraced former Governor of NY, has suggested that he might be a perfect talk host for MSNBC.

Metrosexuals Form Anti-Defamation League

"Does my hair look OK?"
San Francisco Jun 22, 2011. Former Senator John Edwards, who heads the National Metrosexual Association, has announced the formation of the Metrosexual Anti-Defamation League (MADL) to combat rampant bias against Metrosexuals.

The MADL will be led by Edwards close friend and fellow metrosexual John Kerry.

You may recall that starting around 1994 there was a massive movement of liberal males from the "straight" column to the "metrosexual" column, which was pretty much a halfway house on the sexual spectrum.

The movement was believed to have started in Europe.

John Edwards, John Kerry, Al Gore, and Howard Dean all proudly declared themselves to be "metrosexuals." To his credit, former President Bill Clinton never did jump on the metrosexual bandwagon. This can probably be attributed to his redneck upbringing, because in that culture sexual ambiguity is not tolerated. For the same reason there are very few African-American metrosexuals, although some do exist.

There is no record of any Republicans or Conservatives exhibiting metrosexual behavior, although many have speculated about Lindsay Graham's status.

But they weren't just politicians, there were quite a few in the entertainment industry (Brad Pitt, Ashton Kucher, Ryan Seacrest, Justin Timberlake) and even some famous athletes (David Beckham, as an example).

Metrosexual males were characterized by their adoption of many female traits, like carrying purses, wearing clam digger pants, wearing open toed sandals, and the extensive (even obsessive) use of hand lotions and cosmetics. They are compulsive about their appearance and they prefer unisex brand frangrances like Calvin Klein.

Most Metrosexuals usually own a complete boxed set of Will and Grace DVDs.

John and John share a tender moment
While the fad peaked by 2007, and actually began receding since then, there are still several million metrosexual males walking around, and they are getting fed up with normal people poking fun at them.

And in response to this the National Metrosexual Association has decided to launch the Metrosexual Anti-Defamation League to combat these prejudices.

The head of the new civil rights group, John Kerry, says that the MADL will vigorously oppose all forms of bias against Metrosexuals.

John Kerry says he is planning a "Metrosexual Pride Parade" in order to publicize their plight.

Obama Administration Blocks New Jobs in South Carolina

This new plant in North Charleston could be shut down
Charleston, Jun 20, 2011. In a puzzling move well beyond their legal mandate, the National Labor Relations Board is suing the Boeing Corporation for trying to build a second production line for their new Dreamliner passenger jets in South Carolina rather than in Washington state.

The Obama administration says Boeing’s decision to put its new assembly plant in a right-to-work state constitutes unlawful “retaliation” against unions in Washington.

It wants to block the opening of the recently completed South Carolina plant and force Boeing to build the aircraft in Washington State, rather than in South Carolina.

It’s important to note that Boeing’s decision to build a plant in South Carolina does not mean it will cease operations in Washington… simply that it will build a new assembly plant in South Carolina, which has a very supportive business environment. The Washington facility will continue to operate.

Boeing filed a motion to dismiss the case this week.
A hearing on the suit is expected to last for several weeks.

Unfortunately, if the Obama administration has its way, Boeing would be forced to scrap its plans for a South Carolina plant, taking jobs away from more than a thousand South Carolinians.

If President Obama's NLRB is successful preventing this plant expansion in South Carolina, then Boeing has only two choices left. They can either expand a plant in Washington State, or they can simply build these jets offshore. And the odds are that these new jobs will end up in some foreign nation. 

This will cost South Carolina around 10,000 new jobs. They might not be union jobs, but they will be high paying jobs for workers who will get off the unemployment rolls and start paying taxes again.

But Boeing is planning to fight the NLRB decision to sue them.

South Carolina is a right to work state whose voters this past November overwhelmingly amended their state’s constitution to ensure that a worker has the right to vote on whether they want to be represented by a labor union. The workers at the Boeing plant in South Carolina have also taken the bold step of de-certifying the union that represented them, effectively ending the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers stranglehold on Boeing production.

Boeing 787 Dreamliner
Now, Obama’s NLRB is attacking Boeing’s job creation in South Carolina as “union retaliation” directly related to a 2008 labor strike which crippled Boeing’s production in Washington state.

The ultimate irony of the NLRB decision is that this government agency is attempting to tell a company where they can locate a plant in the United States.

If successful, other U.S. companies will take note, and not make the mistake of building plants in right to work states.

Instead they might opt for more desirable overseas locations that are beyond the reach of Obama’s union zealots.

Kenya Sends Formal Complaint to Spin Cycle

Kenyan Banking Official
Jun 19, 2011. The Spin Cycle has received formal notification from the government of Kenya to "immediately cease" identifying President Barack Hussein Obama as a citizen of Kenya.

This demand came to us today in an email received from a Dr. Koso Bongo, who represents himself as a high ranking official in the Kenyan government and a prominent banker.

It seems that the Kenyan Government didn't mind President Obama being called "a Kenyan" when his poll numbers were much higher, but now that he has demonstrated his total incompetence they are disavowing him completely.

We have referred the matter to our attorneys.

However, there is some good news in all of this. Dr. Bongo has asked us to join him in a business partnership in which we will get a 40% share of $15.5 million in unclaimed bank assets. Our Board of Directors is giving this proposition some serious consideration.

Here is a reproduction of the email we received today:

President Obama: "Pipe Dreams about My Father"

A rare photo of Barack Sr. and Barack Jr.
Washington DC, Jun 19, 2011. In his weekly radio address, President Barack Hussein Obama, D-Kenya, reflected on Father's Day, calling fatherhood “my hardest, but always my most rewarding job.”

The president detailed how the absence of his own father has inspired him to be a better parent.

“I grew up without my father around," he said. "He left when I was two years old, and even though my sister and I were lucky enough to have a wonderful mother and caring grandparents to raise us, I felt his absence. And I wonder what my life would have been like had he been a greater presence. That’s why I’ve tried so hard to be a good dad for my own children.”

However, being abandoned by his father did not prevent Barack Obama Jr. from glorifying and praising his father in both of his autobiographies.

In Dreams from My Father, Barack Obama paints a heroic picture of his father as a simple goat herder who emerged from a poor Kenyan village to become a Harvard-educated economist and then returned to Africa to fulfill his destiny. Unfortunately, the reality is much bleaker than the tall tale Obama spins in his book.

The President's maternal Grandmother, Sarah Omar
After being educated at Harvard, Obama Sr. returned to Africa,   abandoning Barack and his mother, to live the life of a chronic alcoholic.

He ultimately killed himself in a drink-induced car accident, tragically driving drunk on the streets of Nairobi.

Obama begins his Dreams from My Father with a scene from 1982, where Obama, having just turned 21 a few months earlier, is shaken, in his New York apartment, by a phone call from Africa telling him his father has been killed in a car accident.

His narrative omits the fact that that Obama Sr. killed himself while driving drunk.

A few pages later, Obama traces his father's history in Kenya back to the time his father herded goats while attending the local "British colonial school."

Obama claims his father showed such "great promise" that he won a scholarship to study in Nairobi and then, "on the eve of Kenyan independence, he had been selected by Kenyan leaders and American sponsors to attend a university in the United States."

Kezia Obama, abandoned when pregnant
Obama carefully omits the underside of the story, that when his father headed off at age twenty-three to a university education in Hawaii, he was abandoning an African girl named Kezia, whom he had married at age eighteen. Nor does Obama mention that Kezia was then pregnant with his father's first child.

Obama magnifies his father's time in Hawaii, claiming he arrived at the University of Hawaii as the institution's first African student. Obama then boasts that his father "studied econometrics, worked with unsurpassed concentration, and graduated in three years at the top of his class."

The President omitted any mention of his father's continued success with women, his chronic alcoholism or the drunk driving incident that eventually claimed his life.

Sheila Jackson Lee Wants Christians Investigated

Washington DC, Jun 18, 2011.  At a congressional hearing on Muslim radicalization in U.S. prisons, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-TX, said that investigators needed to analyze Christian militants in America because they too might try to “bring down the country.”

In an exchange with witness Patrick Dunleavy, the former deputy inspector of the criminal intelligence unit, New York Department of Correctional Services, Rep. Jackson Lee mentioned the case of a man who blew up an abortion clinic and proposed that this perhaps was an attempt to undermine U.S. law that allows a woman to procure an abortion.

Rep. Lee then said, “As we look to be informational, we should include an analysis of how Christian militants or others might bring down the country. We have to look broadly, do we not?”

Dunleavy answered: “I don’t know that Christian militants have foreign country backing or foreign country financing.”

Lee then said, “I don’t think that’s the issue. The issue is whether or not their intent is to undermine the laws of this nation. And I think it is clear that that is the case. So it’s not -- your distinction is not answering the question.”...

Ms. Jackson Lee was determined to distract the focus of the hearing from "Islamic Radicals" and shift it to "Christian Militants."

Misery Index at 28 Year High; So... Obama Plays Golf

Washington DC, Jun 18, 2011.  Unemployment is at record highs, our budget deficit keeps growing,  inflation is severely hurting all but the wealthiest Americans, and now four wars are raging in the Middle East.

So rather than dealing with any of the problems he either inherited or created, President Barack Hussein Obama,D-Kenya, is doing what he enjoys doing most... playing golf.

The President suggested this golf outing so that he and House Speaker John Boehner, R-OH, could iron out their differences over budget deficits and the new war in Libya.

Essentially, the President wants to keep spending money we don't have, and the Speaker wants to cut spending back drastically.

Additionally, the President's "kinetic military action" in Libya was supposed to be a temporary measure.. one that didn't require Congressional approval... but it is now in it's fourth month and shows no signs of abating,  Congress is talking about cutting off the funding for it.

The President's economic problems are even worse. The "Misery Index," a term coined during the disastrous Carter Administration to measure the pain inflicted by soaring unemployment coupled with growing inflation, has reached it's highest level in 28 years.

The index, first compiled during the soaring inflation days of the 1970s by economist Arthur Okun, is registering a nausea-inducing 12.7. This is 9.1 percent for unemployment and 3.6 percent for annualized inflation, a number not seen since 1983.

The index has been above 10 since November 2009 and had been under double-digits from June 1993 through May 2008. At this rate, President Obama will probably top the Misery Index records set by former President Jimmy Carter in the late 1970s.

The golf outing comes against the backdrop of negotiations between the White House and Congress over a long-term deficit reduction plan that will set the stage for increasing the amount of money the government can borrow.

Republicans have insisted on significant cuts of about $2 trillion over 10 years or 12 years before agreeing to increase the current $14.3 debt ceiling, which the government says it will surpass Aug. 2.

Biden is leading a group of bipartisan lawmakers in deficit talks, and he was Obama's golf partner. 

Boehner picked a fellow Ohio Republican, budget-cutting Gov. John Kasich, to join him for the round. Kasich was House Budget Committee chairman in the 1990s when Republicans were negotiating budgets with Democratic President Bill Clinton.

While both sides say they're optimistic about the progress being made in the deficit talks, Boehner has suggested he and the president may need to get more closely involved in order to reach a deal.

The White House has played down any expectations about that happening on the golf course.

"I can say with great confidence that they will not wrap up the 18th hole and come out and say that we have a deal," presidential spokesman Jay Carney said.

Policy tensions between Obama and Boehner also  have extended to the U.S. military campaign in Libya.

Boehner led the House in passing a resolution that chastised Obama for failing to provide a "compelling rationale" for U.S. involvement, and has said Obama is in violation of the War Powers Act. In return, the White House has sought to discredit Boehner's position on the act, sending reporters old statements Boehner made questioning the constitutionality of the measure.

Boehner had a clear advantage over Obama on the scorecard. 

The speaker reportedly shoots in the low-80s, good enough for the magazine Golf Digest to recently rank him 43rd among 150 prominent Washington golfers. The president, on the other hand, was ranked 108th.

"Boehner's a much better golfer than I am, so I'm expecting him to give me some strokes," Obama said in a recent television interview.

The president is likely to get a boost from Biden _ Golf Digest's 29th best golfer in Washington.

White House officials are playing coy about whether they will release the score. The group played the par-72 East Course, one of three 18-hole courses at Andrews.

Weiner finally calls it quits. Stepping down today!

NYC Jun 16, 2011. Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-NY, has scheduled a press conference for 2:00 PM today in which will resign from his seat in Congress.

Weiner is finally heeding calls from President Barack Hussein Obama, D-Kenya, House Speaker John Boehner R-OH, and many others to finally give up his seat.

This should end  the three weeks of  political controversy that began when the New York congressman sent a lewd picture of himself to a female friend.

At first he claimed this was a result of a hack, and later finally admitted he had sent himself.

Weiner's decision comes after days of mounting pressure from congressional Democrats following his embarrassing admission of risque online chats and photo swaps with multiple women after first lying about it.

More photos have since become public, including one of his naked genitals and others of him posing in the House gym. Another photo has emerged of him cross-dressing while younger.

For a week, he claimed he had been “hacked,” but at a tear-filled press conference last week he but at a tear-filled press conference last week he admitted that he had intended to send the photo to a Seattle college student and that he had sent that and other racy photos to at least six women over the last three years.

Weiner, a protege of Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-NY, was a major presence on cable news in recent years and a growing force in liberal politics back home in NYC.

According to two sources, Weiner made up his mind to resign Wednesday night, and shortly after began making calls to inform them of his decision. Weiner called DCCC chair Steve Israel on Wednesday night at the White House picnic to inform him and Pelosi that he had decided to resign on Thursday.

House Democrats were set to strip Weiner of his committee assignments on Thursday morning, though they were not officially informed before a meeting in the Capitol Thursday morning with a White House liaison.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-FL, who chairs the Democratic National Committee, said she had no comment about the resignation and only knew what she read on her BlackBerry.

Weiner’s resignation comes after his wife Huma Abedin, an aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, returned from a week-long trip to Africa with her boss. Weiner had said he would wait until Abedin returned.

The resignation caps an almost three-week frenzy that began when a photo of a man’s crotch was posted publicly on his Twitter account.

President Obama Keeps Another Campaign Promise!

Washington DC, Jun 15, 2011. President Barack Hussein Obama, D-Kenya,  has kept another campaign promise!

This will mark the third time since taking office that the President has actually accomplished something he said he would do.

On January 17, 2008, then candidate Barack Obama  told the San Francisco Chronicle during an interview that he was willing to see the coal industry go bankrupt.

"So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can. It's just that it will bankrupt them."
A little over 3 years later President Obama has kept that campaign promise, as more coal plants are shutting down due to their inability to meet the stringent emissions standards set by the Obama's Democrat Congress in his first two years in office.

American Electric Power announced it plans to shut down several coal-fired power plants, convert or retrofit others, and cut as many as 600 jobs in the next few years to comply with regulations proposed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

When Barack Hussein Obama was campaigning three years ago he made literally hundreds of promises. Among those, he promised us:

"3 out of 300 isn't that bad!"
Create millions of shovel ready jobs
A tax cut for 95% of you
Open and transparent government
No jobs for lobbyists
Repeal the Patriot Act
An end to earmarks
Close Guantanamo Bay
End Warrantless Wiretaps
Bring the troops home in 16 months

And while he ignored most of his campaign promises, he actually has delivered on three of them:

Socialized Medicine
Gays in the Military
Bankrupt the Coal Industry

The latest campaign promise kept is significant because it means that consumers might see their electricity bills jump an estimated 40 to 60 percent in the next few years.

Pending environmental regulations will make coal-fired generating plants, which produce about half the nation's electricity, more expensive to operate. Many are expected to be shuttered

The increases are expected to begin to appear in 2014, and policymakers already are scrambling to find cheap and reliable alternative power sources. If they are unsuccessful, consumers can expect further increases as more expensive forms of generation take on a greater share of the electricity load.

American Electric Power, one of the country's largest coal-burning electricity generators, said Thursday it will retire nearly a quarter of its coal-fueled generating capacity and that it will spend up to $8 billion to retrofit remaining units to meet regulations that start taking effect in 2014. Those moves will have an impact.

"The sudden increase in electricity rates and impacts on state economies will be significant at a time when people and states are still struggling,'' AEP Chairman and CEO Michael G. Morris said.

Coal-fired plants historically have been one of the cheapest ways to generate electricity.

However, operating costs are expected to increase significantly because of upgrades needed on older plants to meet new environmental regulations.

The Illinois Power Agency estimates that by 2017 the energy portion of bills could jump 65 percent from today's rates.

Today is Flag Day; Fly your Flag with pride

The Spin Cycle has joined a group of conservative bloggers who have formed The Right Blogfest. On some special occasions we will all write a post on the same topic, with each one of us providing our own unique viewpoint. 

We are proud to join Two Sisters From The Right, Raised On Hoecakes , Steve and Patriot's Corner in this project. 

We invite you to visit the other blogs for their own perspective on the topic at hand.  

Today, June 14, 2011 is Flag Day.

It commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened on that date by resolution of the Second Continental Congress in 1777.

The United States flag is an important and powerful symbol.

It is literally the symbol of our freedom and many sacrifices that brave young men and women had to make in order to guarantee it.

This was the same flag that we planted atop Mount Suribachi on Iwo Jima in 1945, and the flag that astronaut Neil Armstrong put on the moon in 1969.

This was the flag that symbolized the United States when the US Third Army 808th Tank Destroyer Battalion liberated the concentration camp at Gotha Germany in 1945.

The guards and the officials of the concentration camp, desperate not to be caught, fled at our approaching attack and did not have time to kill the rest of the emancipated prisoners. These prisoners, at our approach, rushed out of the gates waving their arms ecstatically at us as our vehicles entered the open gates of the camp.

This was the very same flag that Michael Jordan, of the 1992 U.S. Olympic "Dream Team"  draped around himself as he accepted the gold medal.

This is the flag that drapes the coffins of our brave fallen warriors. The ones who sacraficed all, so that others could live free and enjoy the liberty that God gave them as a natural right.

In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day. Later, in August 1949, National Flag Day was established by an Act of Congress.

The U.S. flag is also known as the Stars and Stripes, Old Glory and The Star-Spangled Banner. It stands for the United States of America as a government, a nation, a people, and even as the American values of freedom and liberty.

But the flag itself is just a symbol. A symbol that features thirteen horizontal stripes that alternate between dark red and white. These represent the 13 original colonies.

In the top left corner are fifty white stars against a navy blue background. These stars represent the fifty states that currently make up the USA.

According to Charles Thompson, Secretary of the Continental Congress, the chosen colors have specific meaning as well. "White signifies purity and innocence," he said. "Red, hardiness and valor, and blue, the color of the chief, signifies vigilance, perseverance and justice."

Americans often fly the flag as an expression of patriotism, and it is featured in official government ceremonies such as military funerals and political inaugurations. The flag holds tremendous weight around the world as a recognizable symbol of the United States of America.

However, while the flag hasn't changed much in over 220 years (just more stars added, as more states joined the union), the attitude towards the flag has changed a lot for some people.

Unfortunately, in some places, our flag is no longer prominently displayed in our public schools, and the daily ritual of saying The Pledge of Allegience has been abolished. In one recent case, a California school teacher decided that the flag was offensive, and told students they couldn't draw flags for their art class.

Those freedoms symbolized by the flag are so comprehensive, that they even give you the right to burn an American flag as an expression of protest This is...  provided you own it, and don't violate any laws against setting fires in public places.

But for most citizens, the flag is still something respected and revered.

Today is flag day, so show your respect and appreciation for our nation by flying our flag!

President Announces New GM Fuel Efficiency Champ

Riding in style in the new GM Scamp!
Washington DC, Jun 12, 2011. President Barack Hussein Obama, D-Kenya, today announced the latest fuel miser in the Government Motors lineup.

The Chevrolet Scamp will be the perfect urban solution for drivers concerned about the high price of gasoline.

This exciting new vehicle is a snap to park in tight spaces.  You can even get it into an elevator and bring it up to your apartment or condo.

The Scamp is so small, that you can actually carry one inside the trunk of a 2011 Chevy Impala, making it an ideal emergency vehicle or back up car.

This revolutionary three wheeled minicar from General Motors gets an incredible 189 mpg on a standard blend of unleaded gas plus ethanol.  Even when using E85 (85% ethanol) it still will yield an impressive 121 mpg.  This makes the Chevy Volt, the previous high mileage champ, look like a gas guzzler by comparison.

The President's Auto Czar Ron Bloom is predicting that GM will sell over 4 million Scamps in 2012, and estimates that within ten years the Scamp will cut our dependence on imported oil by a whopping 6%!  The Auto Czar added, "There are some additional side benefits to this car. The highway fatality rate will be so high that we will save billions in Social Security and Medicare costs."
It is your patriotic duty to buy a GM Scamp!

The sporty one seat convertible (pictured above without the optional $14,000 canvas top) weighs just under 300 pounds, and comes with a very reliable 6 horsepower Briggs and Stratton engine.

This new gas miser will be available for sale in January 2012 at all Chevrolet dealerships, and will have a MSRP of $68,000.

But fortunately, the Scamp will be offered with a $15,000 taxpayer funded rebate for new buyers. This will bring the cost down to a very modest $53,000.

At today's gas prices, this car will virtually pay for itself over the first 35 years of ownership!

Opinion: The Day America Died

No, it really wasn't the day we allowed Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid to take control of our congress back in January 2007.

It wasn't that day in November 2008, when we elected a man in an empty suit to be our president.

And it wasn't even that time period after 1968 when we allowed the radical left to capture our culture by controlling the schools, the media, the arts and the entertainment industry.

It happened long before these damaging events.You have to go back much further than that to find the time when we began our national decline.

Our nation entered it's fiscal and cultural death spiral the day politicians in both parties discovered to their delight that they could use the Federal Treasury to buy votes for themselves.

Plutarch, the ancient Greek historian warned that,
"The real destroyer of the liberties of the people is he who spreads among them bounties, donations and benefits." 
Sen. Robert Byrd
In all of history, democracies have ended in bankruptcy or hyperinflation whenever the public learns to vote itself benefits. This is exactly what has happened in the United States. We are now bankrupt, because we elected people who promised to spend money we don't have.

Once the professional politicians discovered this fact, the entire game changed. No one could ever win an election by promising voters "less"... they had to promise more.

Almost every public building, highway and bridge in West Virgina is named for now deceased Senator Robert S. Byrd. As if he paid for them out of his own pocket. But the truth is, our children will have to pay for them someday.

So, now we have a deeply entrenched two party system, where one party will promise you the moon, and the other will promise you "something slightly less than the moon" and no matter who wins the taxpayers will lose by being saddled with more and more public debt.

And the "promise you the moon party" (henceforth referred to by their real name... the Democrats) will call the other free spending party ("The Republicans") heartless, greedy bastards for simply promising to spend a little bit less than they will.

But the truth is, both parties will spend money we don't have, and will place this burden of debt on our future generations. Because they don't look farther ahead then their own personal retirement benefits which are guaranteed the day they get elected to office.

Essentially, a Congressman who serves one two year term is entitled to lifetime benefits, including a generous pension. That's it. Two years and they are set for life. Don't you wish you could get a deal like this?

And both parties have colluded to streamline the process and make it easier for them to enrich themselves at the expense of America's future. In fact, they even changed the way they give themselves raises. In the past, they couldn't risk giving themselves generous raises during an election year. And this happens "every other year."

So, in 1989 they invented a system for "automatic raises." They don't have to go on record asking for more money. It now happens automatically. They only need to vote if they want to prevent their salary hikes, and logic tells you that that will never happen.

And these are the same people who froze Social Security cost of living increases for the past two years. While collecting two big fat raises for themselves.

Every spending bill is demagogued. Those who want to spend more are portrayed as people who "care about the little guy." Anyone who who wants to spend one cent less is said to "want little children and old people to die." These are the heartless bastards I referred to earlier.

And it works like a charm.

The voters eat it up, and vote for whoever promises them the most. No doubt, this is only possible because the schools have been dumbed down, and the media is working hard to keep the crooks in office. But the root cause of the problem is that we allow politicians to buy votes with our money.

Any politician who wants to restore fiscal sanity is promptly marginalized and demonized by the press. It doesn't matter if they are on the right or the left. If a politician wants a shot at winning an election, then he or she must promise to spend more money than their opponent is promising to spend.

But the joke is on the voters, because your elected officials are only promising to give you some of your own money back. Or worse yet, they are promising to borrow money to give you new benefits... and this is money your grandchildren will somehow have to pay back.

The real solution for this isn't in electing a different president, or a new congress. Because they all buy into this culture of perpetually spending money we don't have. The real solution is to fundamentally reform and overhaul our system, to prevent this sort of abuse.

We need to reinvent our system from the ground up. A few minor reforms won't do the trick. It is too badly broken now.

We probably need a Second American Revolution, and a New Constitutional Convention to drive all the corruption out of the system.

This might mean real campaign finance reform, real term limits, and perhaps even limiting voting rights to taxpayers or at least people who can prove who they are, and prove they can read and write.

We may also need to reform our financial system, and eliminate the FED, and their currency manipulations. We do not benefit by the constant devaluation of the dollar.

I know this sounds radical... but what are the real alternatives?
More of the same just won't work.

The irony of all this is that President Barack Hussein Obama, D-Kenya, was actually right. We do need "Real Change."

But he never delivered on that promise. We just changed which party was mismanaging our nation.
