Spontaneous outbreak of "astro-turf"

Hundreds of cheering "tourists" have gathered outside the White House to celebrate Usama bin Laden's death at the hands of the US military, but there's something suspicious here... these crowds had started forming >hours< before President Obama's announcement that bin Laden had been killed.

How did these hundreds of young, cheering, flag-waving patriots know to be outside the White House if the content of Obama's announcement hadn't even been released to the news media until 10:30? One mainstream (read liberal) media outlet describes these crowds as "tourists." Really? Tourists are assembling outside the White House with American flags for a presidential address, whose content even the press isn't aware of?

No, this smells an awful lot like "astro turfing", something meant to look natural but actually fake and plastic.

In this case, it appears that this spontaneous outpouring of flag-waving Americans into the streets were actually party faithful, tipped off and assembled by their party leaders to cheer in front of the television cameras while President Obama made his announcement of bin Laden's death.

And its pretty blatant. You just can't believe that all of these (really young) "tourists" suddenly obtained (really big) American flags and appeared (really quickly) outside the White House because of an announcement they heard on television only five minutes before.

Glenn Beck: "Dangerous" .... or "Accurate?"

Glenn Beck wonders when the American public be compensated for Anthony Weiner's blatantly political "investigation" of Beck's supposed gold scam. Since when is it a scam to simply reveal the facts and to prepare for the worst?

I wonder if District Representative Weiner will be investigated for making investment advice and depriving the public of the protection and value store that gold affords them.

Asia & Pacific U.S. Will Consider Controversial Drone Policy

"Just when things could not appear to get any worse, in March a drone attack in Pakistan’s militant-infested northwest killed a gathering of 31 tribal elders and others, in an apparent confusion over the intended target. The death toll added to an already high civilian body count.

An estimated 600 civilian lives have been claimed by drone attacks in the past 24 months compared to more than 1,000 militants’ killed in four years..."

Ok so WHY isn't being Barack Obama hauled into the World Court for his "war crimes"... you know, the same war crimes that former President George Bush committed?

UPDATE: GE Doubles CEO Immelt's Compensation, Shrinks Board

Wait a minute, doesn't Barack Obama have a "Pay Czar" who is supposed to regulate the compensation of these greedy CEO fat cats? Oh wait, I forgot ... Jeffrey Immelt heads up the President's "Council on Jobs and Competitiveness" so I guess it's ok for favored cronies to collect big fat payrolls. Their efforts are "necessary" to the economy...

Meanwhile villainous banks like Bank of America are denied a raise in their dividend payout. The White House and the Federal Reserve are calling the shots now, not the Constitution, and they're just making it up as they go.

This is sad folks, you can kiss your country goodbye...

Fact Checking Obama's Libya Claims

The man is a liar. A deceitful, inconsistant, liar, interested only in getting what he wants and NOT fulfilling the duties of his office...

Fact Checking Obama

Presidents typically pick their fights according to the crisis and circumstances at hand, not any consistent doctrine about when to use force in one place and not another. They have been criticized for doing so — by Obama himself.

In his pre-presidential book "The Audacity of Hope," Obama said the U.S. will lack international legitimacy if it intervenes militarily "without a well-articulated strategy that the public supports and the world understands." He questioned: "Why invade Iraq and not North Korea or Burma? Why intervene in Bosnia and not Darfur?"

Now, such questions are coming at him.

What's good for the goose...

Joe Biden warned us in 2007 that he'd support impeachment of then President George Bush for waging war in Iraq and Afghanistan where there was no imminent threat to the United States. Well by this time, President Bush *had* obtained congressional approval ... TWICE... and Congress had transferred to Bush the power to go to war.

Today, Our Dear Leader, Barack Obamaa, has just created a third "necessary" war in Libya where there was no imminent or even conceivable threat to the United States and has thus far failed to obtain Congressional approval for this "Kinetic Military Action" in Libya. By Joe Biden's standards, the House of Representatives should immediately begin impeachment proceedings against current president, Barack Obama, and Biden should support this effort...

Well, Mister Vice President... are you going to support the impeachment of Barack Obama for the *exact* same offense as George Bush?

And this man has had access to the White House and Obama's inner circle... probably to beg for money like NPR... I'll bet he also handed out complimentary copies of The Communist Manifesto and Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals" too...
