Joe Soptic: Anti-Romney steelworker admits Bain Capital offered him a buyout

Comments Off on Joe Soptic: Anti-Romney steelworker admits Bain Capital offered him a buyout

Liar, liar, pants on fire, Mr. Soptic! You should be ashamed of yourself, exploiting your wife’s death!

Well, well, well… the truth comes out! Mr. Soptic got caught in a big ole stinky lie! Not only does he finally admit that Bain Capital offered him a buyout when he lost his job, but Mr. Soptic’s wife actually died five years after the plant closed down. This was in 2006. Then there’s the issue that Mitt Romney left Bain Capital in 1999- SEVEN YEARS before Mr. Stopic’s wife died!

According to Business Insider, Mr. Soptic’s wife was not insured by Bain Capital, but was instead insured by Savers Thrift Store, her employer. Mrs. Soptic was laid off from her job in 2002 or 2003, and at that time lost her health insurance.

So Mr. Soptic’s sad, pitiful story about him losing his job had absolutely nothing to do with his wife losing her job, which in turn meant she lost her insurance. Therefore, Mitt Romney has absolutely no connection with the death of Mrs. Soptic.

Democrat PAC Now On Rep. Allen West

Comments Off on Democrat PAC Now On Rep. Allen West

PAC ads are despicable.  Mitt Romney’s attack ads were bad enough about bending the truth in the primary. Obama’s ads are worse, and can you believe this one about Allen West. Puh-leese, enough already. If this is the way PAC ads are run, (and the candidates have no input..yeah, right) then they should be banned, or at least accountable for the trash they put in them. The Video link is at the bottom of the page if you want to look at that trash….from the Blaze:

UPDATE: PAC DISABLES COMMENTING & RATING ON ALLEN WEST ATTACK AD DEPICTING HIM BEATING WOMEN

By Bennie Johnson

  • It is hard to think of an attack ad lower than the one essentially blaming Mitt Romney for woman’s death, but we may have just found one.

It’s from Florida, and it depicts Allen West (R-FL) in a boxing ring with red gloves on.  The cartoon-like video then shows West punching an old woman, a young lady and seemingly a family with children.  He also steals cash from the hands of the family and pockets it, all while laughing like a gremlin.

And the audio matches the video. The female announcer says in condescending tone as sound effects play in the background:

“West has socked it to seniors”

“He’s whacked women with his votes”

“He’s mauled middle class families”

 

The ad is starting to garner attention from critics, including one who thinks there are some racial undertones.  Javier Manjarres, who is following the race closely, notes:

 ”The ad slyly uses a caricature of West and portrays him as a bully who hits women- more specifically, a white women- while he grabs money away from a “middle class” family that just happens to be a black family.”

West called the ad “reprehensible,“ saying it ”shows a lack of regard for the issues plaguing our nation.”

The American Sunrise PAC is responsible for the video.  The group was incidentally founded by the father of Congressman West’s general election opponent, Democrat Patrick Murphy, who has funneled $250,000 into the PAC.

UPDATE: The group responsible for the West advertisement has disabled all comments and ratings on their video page.  The immense distaste for the ad may have pressured this move.  As Blaze reporter Jason Howerton noted: The video on YouTube currently has more than 12,000 views, with 252 “dislikes” and just 16 “likes.”  The move is ironic since the group responsible for the ad claims to work for “thoughtful”, “more open”, “brighter future” in politics.

Hawaii federal judge strikes down bid to redefine marriage in court

Comments Off on Hawaii federal judge strikes down bid to redefine marriage in court

(LifeSiteNews.com) — A federal court Wednesday upheld Hawaii’s definition of marriage as one man and one woman, rejecting a lawsuit to tear down both the definition as well as Hawaii’s constitutional amendment giving the legislature the power to maintain it.

Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys defended the law and the amendment on behalf of Hawaii Family Forum, which the court allowed to intervene in the case in April.

“This ruling affirms that protecting and strengthening marriage as the union of one man and one woman is legitimate, reasonable, and good for society,” said Legal Counsel Dale Schowengerdt. “The people of Hawaii adopted a constitutional amendment to uphold marriage, and the court rightly concluded that the democratic process shouldn’t be short-circuited by judicial decree.”

The three individuals who filed the suit asked the court to declare the state’s constitutional amendment on marriage and the state’s law defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman unconstitutional. The lawsuit also assailed Hawaii’s “civil unions” law, which became effective Jan 1, saying that equal rights would only be fulfilled by redefining marriage itself.

But in its order, the U.S. District Court for the District of Hawaii concluded, “Throughout history and societies, marriage has been connected with procreation and childrearing…. It follows that it is not beyond rational speculation to conclude that fundamentally altering the definition of marriage to include same-sex unions might result in undermining the societal understanding of the link between marriage, procreation, and family structure.”

“In this situation,” the court continued, “to suddenly constitutionalize the issue of same-sex marriage ‘would short-circuit’ the legislative actions that have been taking place in Hawaii…. Accordingly, because Hawaii’s marriage laws are rationally related to legitimate government interests, they do not violate the federal Constitution.”

Gov. Neil Abercrombie stated both publicly and in the lawsuit that he would not defend the state’s marriage law. His attacks on the law’s constitutionality prompted Hawaii Family Forum to ask the court to allow it to intervene in defense of marriage in the state.

Tennessee mosque could open by Friday, board member says

Comments Off on Tennessee mosque could open by Friday, board member says

The Muslims have the same 1st amendment rights in the US as any other church to practice their religion, the problem is when they get their foot in your community door, they try to take over little at a time. Just look at Dearborn Michigan and the State of Michigan with the first Muslim representative sworn in on the Koran. Then look at the UK and what’s happening there.

Leaders of a Murfreesboro, Tennessee, mosque whose construction has been beset by controversy hope to hold their first prayer services in the new center on Friday, a board member said Tuesday.

The Islamic Center of Murfreesboro passed its final building inspection on Friday, board member Saleh Sbenaty said.

Sbenaty said paperwork still must be filed with Rutherford County officials to receive a temporary occupancy permit. He expected that to happen Tuesday afternoon.

The approval would allow the mosque to open before the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which ends August 18.

Opponents of the mosque filed a lawsuit in 2010 after planning commissioners approved a proposal to expand the facility. They argued the county had failed to follow public notice requirements leading up to the approval.

The mosque opponents argued the facility posed a “risk of terrorism generated by proselytizing for Islam and inciting the practices of Sharia law” and that planning commissioners violated their due process rights.

In May, a county judge overturned approvals for the plan, saying the county had violated state law by not providing proper notice.

In July, the U.S. Justice Department and the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro filed separate lawsuits, arguing that Rutherford County officials violated federal laws when they denied requests for a final inspection and certificate of occupancy for the mosque.

The center’s lawsuit argued that it was ordered to meet “a heightened standard of notice in the zoning process” because of objections by some Murfreesboro residents, a standard no other religious institution has been asked to meet.

U.S. District Judge Todd J. Campbell issued a temporary restraining order last month ordering county officials to provide the final building inspection.

In addition to the legal fight, the construction site has been vandalized several times, including by an arson attack in 2010, and federal authorities have charged a Texas man with calling in a bomb threat to the center before last year’s anniversary of the September 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington.

“Not welcome” was spray-painted by vandals on a sign announcing the construction of the project.

Rep. Steve King considering bill to repeal everything Obama has signed

Comments Off on Rep. Steve King considering bill to repeal everything Obama has signed

Too bad this won’t go anywhere……..it sounds like a great idea. Or maybe it will work…..what do you think?

If Rep. Steve King (R-IA) has his way, everything President Obama has signed into law would be repealed, and he is considering a bill to do just that, The Hill reported Wednesday.

“King put forward this suggestion to an Iowa audience on Tuesday, when he also reiterated his threat to sue the Obama administration for its June decision not to deport younger illegal immigrants,” Pete Kasperowicz wrote.

He also told a group of about 60 people in Humboldt County that he intends to sue the administration over an executive order stopping the deportation of certain illegal immigrants.

”I am bringing him to court and we’re going to defend the Constitution of the United States and the separation of powers,” he said.

According to the Messenger, King’s lawsuit may be filed before Labor Day.

“He said Tuesday that he decided to sue the president the day the executive order was announced,” the Messenger reported.

King said that President Obama violated the Constitution by usurping Congress’ role in the lawmaking process.

”He has prosecutorial discretion, but he does not have the ability to grant blanket amnesty to entire classes of people,” he added.

Man Jailed For Collecting Rainwater Begins Sentence

Comments Off on Man Jailed For Collecting Rainwater Begins Sentence

This is another unbelieveable thing:According to Harrington, he built ponds on his property more than 40years ago. When Harrington went to trial, the jury was denied hearing his side of the case. He says the judge ruled that the 1925 ruling prevents any water being stored by anyone on the creek. His argument is that this is not diverted water, but merely rain water and therefore not subject to the 1925 ruling. His appeal will also include the fact that the jury was not allowed to hear any of his arguments nor were they apprised of the facts of the case.

An Oregon man sent to prison for collecting rainwater on his own property began the first day of his jail sentence with a warning that the American people need to stand up to a government that is operating completely outside the boundaries of common sense unless they wish to see liberty vanish.

After an 11-year battle with the state of Oregon, landowner Gary Harrington was found guilty under a 1925 law and sentenced to spend 30 days in jail for collecting rainwater in three “illegal reservoirs” despite the fact that they are on his property.

After refusing to follow an order to empty the “reservoirs” (which in reality are little more than large ponds), Harrington decided to follow through with the jail sentence as an example to other Americans as to how far the country has slipped from its constitutional values.

Harrington’s case has become a cause célèbre for Americans sick to the back teeth of big government interfering in property rights.

Flanked by protesters gathered outside of the Jackson County (Ore.) Jail, Harrington said he loved his country and was willing to go to jail “to get the truth out and restore freedom and common sense in America.”

Harrington pointed out that the state had broken their own law by issuing permits to individuals allowing them to divert water from public supplies, whereas Harrington was merely collecting rainwater that fell on his own property and was not taken from municipal supplies.

“Common sense is the basis for common law, without common sense, the law is insane and we did not agree to be governed by insanity or illegality,” said Harrington, adding that throughout American history, citizens have laid their lives down to preserve cherished rights.

Federal Court Upholds Free Speech Zone Roundup

Comments Off on Federal Court Upholds Free Speech Zone Roundup

There was once a group of men who established a fundamental law of the land that allowed the people of their new found country to peaceably assemble and petition their government for a redress of grievances.

These founding fathers of that Great nation even went so far as to declare that the government itself could never make a law that would threaten to supplant these protections, which were reserved exclusively for the people. This concept of freedom of assembly and protest was so critical to protecting and preserving the liberty of the people that it was the very first law — the very first Amendment — proposed by the newly elected representatives of These United States of America and came into effect on December 15, 1791.
