Michigan Governer to Announce Emergency Takeover of Detroit

According to news reports quoting the mayor of Detroit, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder will announce an emergency take over of that state’s largest city:

DETROIT (WXYZ) – Detroit Mayor Dave Bing says Michigan Governor Rick Snyder will announce a state takeover of the city of Detroit on Friday.

Bing says the governor told him his decision during a phone conversation this morning. Bing was talking with reporters following a speech before the Detroit Regional Chamber at the MotorCity Casino.

The city will have 10 days to appeal the decision to the governor.

Governor Snyder said a week ago he would take a week or so to make his final decision on what he would do with the city of Detroit. At that time he said he would either appoint an emergency financial manager or enter into a new consent agreement with the city.

Those remarks came after a financial review team found that a financial emergency existed in the city of Detroit. The review team also recommended to Snyder that he appoint an emergency financial manager to run the city.

The finance review team just figured this out? Good job eggheads.

What tipped them off? Maybe the decades of ruin and collapse?

Or maybe it was this headline from a week ago:

47 Percent of Detroit Property Owners Pay No Taxes

After the streak of California cities declaring bankruptcy, I’m betting the state takeover of ailing cities’ finances will be recurring news.

White House Official Accused of Threatening Bob Woodward Yelled at CNN’s Jessica Yellin Over Budget Negotiations


Bob Woodward told CNN that Barack Obama’s admin staff threatened him in an email after yelling at him for half an hour, and saying he would regret his budget cut challenge.

Now the entire liberal maggot media complex is running to mock Woodward for daring to go against their savior.

Buzzfeed has identified the official as Gene Sperling, the White House Economic Fiction Advocate.

I’d like to enter the following video into evidence for the defense:

My, he doesn’t even like a reporter daring to give the GOP point of view – “balance”?!?! Who do you think you are, Jessica Yellin!?!

This is in addition to the earlier video I posted where he racially attacks Maria Bartilomo.

White House Official Accused of Threatening Bob Woodward Berated Maria Bartiromo on Obama Budget


Bob Woodward told CNN that Barack Obama’s admin staff threatened him in an email after yelling at him for half an hour, and saying he would regret his budget cut challenge.

Now the entire liberal maggot media complex is running to mock Woodward for daring to go against their savior.

Buzzfeed has identified the official as Gene Sperling, the White House Economic Fiction Advocate.

I’d like to enter the following video into evidence for the defense:

He gets pretty testy with Maria, doesn’t he? I could imagine him angrily yelling at Bob Woodward and offering veiled threats…

Also, remember when Newt Gingrich was supposedly racist for calling Juan Williams that well-known racial epithet, “Juan”? Why isn’t Gene racist for pointedly berating Maria with her own name, “Maria”?

And ANOTHER Video of Gene Sperling Berating a Journalist for Disagreeing With the White House!!

GOP Texas Welcomes Democrats Looking to Turn State Blue in Humorous Letter

The Democrats have announced their intent to turn Texas into a blue state by 2016, and the GOP has responded [emphasis added]:

Welcome to Texas!

Statement from the Republican Party of Texas Chairman Steve Munisteri regarding launch of Battleground Texas, an Obama campaign effort to turn Texas blue by the next Presidential election.

“Texas recently has welcomed hundreds of thousands of political and economic refugees from far off lands, seeking a new home and better opportunity in the oasis of liberty known as Texas. Recently, a team of liberal Obama campaign insiders joined this migration. We thought we’d be hospitable to these friendly competitors by offering some tips and facts they may find useful for assimilating into what, for them, must seem like a strange and foreign land.”

  • If politics doesn’t work out, you might want to visit Dallas, Houston, Austin, Fort Worth or San Antonio – 5 of the nation’s 10 best cities for good jobs.
  • Get Texas residency quickly to avoid paying state income tax. Even though we don’t agree with your politics, we do believe that you are the best judge of how to spend your own money.
  • When offered a tamale, you need to remove the corn husk before eating the delicious meat wrapped inside.
  • Be sure to visit with some of the world’s smartest engineers at NASA. Their space exploration efforts have resulted in fantastic scientific discoveries and many useful inventions, including healthier baby food, advancements in breast cancer diagnoses and farther flying golf balls. Maybe when you’re done, you can call Ohio and recommend they send their retired space shuttle to Texas, where it belongs.
  • Don’t sit cross legged while wearing spurs.
  • Texas Republicans have elected more minorities to statewide office in the past 19 years than Democrats did after controlling the state for over 100 years. The list includes Al Gonzales, David Medina, Eva Guzman, Wallace Jefferson and Dale Wainwright to the Texas Supreme Court, Elsa Alcala to the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals, Victor Carillo and Michael Williams to the Texas Railroad Commission. And, Texas’ first U.S. Senator of Hispanic descent, Ted Cruz.

Texas is doing just fine with our low taxes, limited government and personal freedoms. We think it’s just a matter of time before you realize we’re doing things well here and when you do, invite you to join the dozens of Democrat elected officials who switched to the Republican Party in the last year. In fact, just this last week, we welcomed 3 more former Democrats to the GOP.

I would have rather heard about Democrats eating their tamales with the corn husk attached, but otherwise, how nice of the GOP!!

 

DHS Official Resigns After White House Blasted for Illegal Aliens Freed Supposedly Over Budget Cuts

Today the White House was questioned over illegal aliens being released supposedly because of sequester budget cuts – they denied any involvement.

However, hours after this press conference, ICE official Gary Mead announced he would resign – he’s the head of the illegal alien detainment program:

From the AP:

WASHINGTON—The Associated Press has learned that the Homeland Security Department official in charge of the agency’s immigration enforcement and removal operations has resigned after hundreds of illegal immigrants were released from jails because of government spending cuts.

In an email obtained Wednesday by the AP, Gary Mead told coworkers that he was leaving U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement at the end of April. Mead is the head of enforcement and removal operations at ICE.

Mead had told co-workers of his resignation in the email sent Tuesday, hours after U.S. officials had confirmed that a few hundred illegal immigrants facing deportation had been released from immigration jails due to budget cuts.

President Barack Obama’s spokesman said Wednesday the White House was never consulted but described the immigrants as “low-risk, non-criminal detainees.”

Here’s some more info about him from his bio at DHS:

Gary Mead is the Executive Associate Director for Enforcement and Removal Operations, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Washington D.C. Mr. Mead oversees a $2.5 billion budget and 8,395 employees. ERO promotes public safety and national security by removing national security threats, high-risk criminal aliens, illegal alien fugitives, and absconders; and ensuring safe and effective custody management for more than 30,000 illegal aliens in custody each day.

As I reported yesterday, the 8% cuts in the ICE budget are wildly out of proportion with the 24% of illegals set to be allowed to go free. So what’s the story here? Did Obama fire the guy to save face, or did the White House not really know this was happening?

I doubt the lapdog media will help get to the bottom of this…

UPDATE:

Glenn Beck’s Blaze site is reporting that ICE denies his resignation had anything to do with the illegal alien releases – hours after the White House got nailed on it? Really?

Why is Obama Releasing 24% of Criminal Illegal Aliens Because of 8% Sequester Cut to ICE?!

One of the more maddening headlines in this fake sequester crisis is how ICE is releasing thousands of illegal alien criminals who are slated for deportation. This is an obviously unnecessary ploy in order to force the GOP to concede to Obama’s ridiculous tax increases.

What’s more infuriating is that the maggot lapdog media goes along with the plan, trying to scare Americans, when these cuts are completely gratuitous – in all the reporting, there isn’t any mention of the actual cut in the budget for ICE – I had to find a reference to the cut from 4 months ago:

The sequestration cut to ICE would be $454 million , which is only 8% of the 2012 budget of $5.65 billion.

So why are they threatening to let free thousands of criminal illegal aliens at a rate greater than that?

From ICE’s official website:

In Fiscal Year 2011, ICE received approval for a total funded average daily population of approximately 33,400 detention beds. The average daily population increased by nearly 20 percent from an average of 27,990 in Fiscal Year 2007 to an average of 33,330 in Fiscal Year 2011.

For that budget cut of 8%, they’re threatening the public with 24% of detainees being let free:

ICE reportedly plans to reduce their available beds to 25,700 from their current 34,000.

And yet, when Janet Napolitano presented her budget for DHS just a few weeks ago, ICE had a 2% budget cut, with this result:

Decreased funding for detention from 34,000 beds daily to 32,800 and increase use of Alternatives to Detention.

So a 2% decrease in budget for ICE results in 1,200 reduction of detention beds, but an 8% results in nearly 10,000 a reduction?

As I’ve noted before, math is hard, but hope is easy for democrats:

Why does president chicken little get away with screech that the illegal alien criminal sky is falling? Because none of the major press outlets ever report these numbers to give these claims any context – they only report how many illegal criminals would be set free:

Even Fox News doesn’t report them:

It’s being reported that most of these detainees are being released in California, New Jersey, Texas, and Florida, though Sheriff Babeu in Arizona has also indicated that many have been released there already.

UPDATE:

In Arizona, 300 illegals have been released. In the report above, one who was released was told to just tell them where he was going to stay.

Fallout From My #LiberalTips2AvoidRape Hashtag; How The Daily Beast Screwed Me Over

It’s been quite a few days for your friendly neighborhood Sooper Conservative Mexy-friend.

After my hashtag #LiberalTips2AvoidRape trended on twitter for 2 days, liberals went absolutely insane and on the attack. Their attacking has taught me firsthand some of what I’ve heard about how the media skews and manipulates stories to fit their agenda.

One of the better interactions I’ve had are from conservatives, such as Kira Davis at her online radio show, and Kevin Jackson of the Blacksphere on his radio show. Even among conservatives, I got some push back. Here’s a segment where I appeared on the Dom Giordano Show in Philadelphia:

Dom-Giordano-Show-SooperMex.mp3

Also Michelle Malkin’s Twitchy site excellently showed some of the hypocrisy of the liberal reaction.

But of course, the really insane, foam-at-the-mouth, spit-spurting, hysterical response was from liberals, who I truly believe mostly invented their feelings of offense in order to further smear conservatives.

 

THE YOUNG TURKS

 

I’ve never thought much of the dimwits at “the Young Turks,” and they confirmed my estimation of them when they criticized me for my hashtag, all the while excusing Salazar’s comments demeaning women. Wonder if that had to do with me being conservative and Salazar being a democrat? I don’t.

The only sub-intelligent criticism they could muster is to question my ethnicity! I tell you, these people are geniuses. Continue reading

The Morons At “The Young Turks” Defend Salazar’s Comments Demeaning Women

This is just too wonderful….

I have a special place in my liver for the idiots like Cenk Uygur at “the Young Turks.” He has all the charisma of rotting roadkill, with the additional benefit of being a dim-witted liberal!

But like with most Leftists, they will utterly excuse offenses to the principles they pretend to have if they come from Democrats.

That’s why they’re agreeing with Colorado State Senator Salazar’s ridiculous comments that women are just too frail and stupid not to shoot at any male who comes within 10 feet of them:

The best part has to be Cenk doing his best to make a joke about my ethnicity – I just can’t be Latino, because there are no minorities who are conservative! LOL!

Genius commentary, pendejo.

With those powers of intellect and humor, I don’t have any hope that they might actually understand that taking away a woman’s ability to defend herself from an evil crime is not really pro-women.

Where was their screeching at all the rapes at the Occupy Wall St. camps?

Did they say anything when liberal maggots Keith Olbermann and Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas actually EXCUSED all the rapes?

Click on the image to see examples of all the rapes at OWS events completely ignored by leftists like the Daily Turks.

A Lapdog Media Tactic: Pushing An Agenda With Misleading Headlines

We’ve all done it – we see a juicy headline and we’re outraged! But instead of clicking the link for more information, we file away the info to be used later against our political opponents. These days, if you’re a news junkie and twitter addict the way I am, it’s much too easy to do.

And that’s why media lapdogs take advantage of it with a very simple tactic that’s used every day – the misleading headline.

What they do is put just enough info in the headline to get a reaction – it doesn’t even need to be a lie, just not the entire truth. Some will click on the twitter link and read more – many won’t. This is a perfect example:

Notice how he isn’t identified as a liberal until you read past the headline – so the headline just registers in liberals’ lizard-sized brains as some conservative Fox News host, and feeds their belief that the Republican Party is waging a “war on women.”

Every tweet with the headline gets read, but not all gets clicked on, so that they can see his identification as a liberal.

UPDATE:

The good and decent folks at Twitchy went after the writer of the post for this, and he tries to sidestep the issue. Read about it here.

Now one step removed from this – Huffington Post:

This one’s even more brilliant – the headline doesn’t mention Fox News, but the article does. What the article neglects to mention anywhere is that Beckel is a liberal!

So it leads to brilliant comments like this one from their mouth-foaming dim-witted readers: Continue reading
