White House working to avoid clash with NFL’s opening game: Again, watch the NFL skip Obama!

Boehner, R-Ohio, balked at the president’s original request to appear before Congress to discuss the nation’s chronic unemployment problem on Wednesday, Sept. 7. That’s the same day as a Republican presidential debate in Simi Valley, Calif.

Obama agreed to move his speech to Thursday, Sept. 8, which happens to coincide with the opening game of the NFL regular season, a prime time contest between the New Orleans Saints and the defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers from Lambeau Field.

The game will be televised by NBC at 8:30 p.m. ET.

“We’re aware of the situation and are communicating with the NFL,” an NBC spokesman told ProFootballTalk.com.

The Associated Press reported that White House officials were working on the precise timing of the speech in hopes of avoiding a conflict.

It is time to ignore the idiot in the White House. I advise everyone to watch the NFL and make sure to tune out President Obama. let the ratings show how pathetic he really is…………

On September 8th, watch Football and skip Obama

President Obama will have an address one week from today. We all know he will not have anything new to say. So lets all send a message and create a watch football, not Obama night. God Bless the USA and damn the socialist idiots running our once great country.

Who will start the first facebook page?

Texas County Courthouse Becomes First in State to Add ‘In God We Trust’

“In God We Trust.” On Tuesday, those four simple words were added to the walls of the Smith County Courthouse in northeast Texas.

There is a curious fact about this story, though: apparently the Smith County Court House is the first county courthouse in the history of the state of Texas to have the motto that appears on all American money, printed or minted, put on its walls. The effort was assisted by “In God We trust America,” a group calling for elected officials in cities, towns and counties all across the country to post America’s officially adopted national motto on the walls of their buildings.

In the case of Smith County, the addition of “In God We Trust” was voted on and approved by city commissioners last month and Tuesday was the first day that the motto appeared on the walls of the courtroom.

KLTV in Lindale, TX covered the story and spoke with Judge Joel Baker about the installation:

“We had to go through some legal channels to make sure it covered every base. We know that there may be some challengers, we‘ve already heard some criticism but it’s something that, as I said, this nation was founded on, we believe in it and supported it and we‘re glad it’s here,” says Baker.

There are over 250 counties in Texas and Smith County can claim the honor of being the first in the Lone Star State to proudly display “In God We Trust” on the walls of its courtroom.

As Judge Baker speculated above, there may be challenges to the motto coming down the pike. We will follow the story and update as needed.

NLRB is Un-American

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley announced Thursday that she supports calling for the National Labor Relations Board’s only Republican member to resign. If Brian Hayes steps down immediately, she said, the Board wouldn’t be able to assemble the quorum required to take any actions, including its case targeting The Boeing Company.

During a conference call Thursday morning, Haley called the NLRB an “absolutely un-American … rogue agency” with a “bully mentality.”

“I would support anything that would disband the NLRB,” Haley said in response to a question from The Daily Caller asking if she would back calls for Hayes to resign. “The only use that it has is trying to allow the unions to be relevant and they just aren’t. It’s a desperate attempt for them to get attention and they’re doing it the wrong way.”

“I’d be the biggest cheerleader for [getting rid of the NLRB],” Haley added.

Maxine Waters: ‘Gangster’ Banks Must Modify Loans Or ‘We’re Gonna Tax Them Out of Existence’

Rep. Carson hits bottom; keeps digging

“In for a penny, in for a millions bucks” I always say. For Representative Andre Carson (D-IN), that adage has special meaning.

Carson, one of the ranking members of the Congressional Black Caucus, sounded the alarm about the tea party at an event in Florida on August 22. From CNN:

Some of these folks in Congress would love to see us as second-class citizens. Some of them in Congress right now of this tea party movement would love to see you and me … hanging on a tree,” Carson said, according to the audio.

Obviously, no one has to “hang” Carson after he hoisted himself on his own petard.

Be that as it may, instead of apologizing for his rank hate speech, Carson doubled down:

On Wednesday, Carson told CNN he stood by those remarks.

“Well, I wasn’t talking about the entire tea party. I think the tea party is absolutely right when they call for increased transparency in government, when they call for a cutback on excessive government spending. I am deeply concerned about some elements of the tea party who are extremist and who have reflected a mentality going back to the John Birch society, going back to George Wallace’s Dixiecrats,” Carson said.

Tea party officials have previously renounced characterizations that their movement is racist. Carson said he believes the vitriolic political environment has encouraged increased attacks on minority groups.

And earlier Wednesday, Jason Tomsci, a Carson aide, said the congressman’s sentiments were valid. “Members of the tea party are holding up a lot of things that the president wants to do and want to gut critical services and programs that they know are important to African Americans as well as Latinos and other minorities,” Tomsci said.

“There have been elements who have expressed, that have expressed deep hostilities toward African Americans, Latinos, immigrants as well, so I am concerned about those elements that are taking us off-track as a country,” Carson said.

Let me get this straight. The tea party is sort of good, except when it’s very bad, and then there really isn’t anything good about it because it’s so bad.

As soon as we untangle Carson’s feet from being stuck in a couple of places thought impossible, we’ll let you know what he really thinks.

Of course, no Democratic politician has called Carson out for those incredibly exaggerated and false statements. Criticism of a favored minority just isn’t done in party circles lest the Black Caucus start calling members of their own party “racists.” That won’t happen which is why Carson feels no need to apologize or revise his remarks.

FEMA’S use of term ‘federal family’ for government expands under Obama

Don’t think of it as the federal government but as your “federal family.”

In a Category 4 torrent of official communications during the approach and aftermath of Hurricane Irene, the Federal Emergency Management Agency has repeatedly used the phrase “federal family” when describing the Obama administration’s response to the storm.

The Obama administration didn’t invent the phrase but has taken it to new heights.

“Under the direction of President Obama and Secretary Janet Napolitano, the entire federal family is leaning forward to support our state, tribal and territorial partners along the East Coast,” a FEMA news release declared Friday as Irene churned toward landfall.

The G-word — “government” — has been nearly banished, with FEMA instead referring to federal, state and local “partners” as well as “offices” and “personnel.”

“’Government’ is such a dirty word right now,” says Florida State University communication professor Davis Houck. “Part of what the federal government does and any elected official does is change the terms of the language game into terms that are favorable to them.”

“Family” can evoke favorable thoughts of motherhood and security. But it can also conjure images of Big Brother and organized crime.
