If you’re a radical left-wing ideologue seeking to “fundamentally transform” the country into something that more resembles the former Soviet Union than the republic founded by Washington, Jefferson, et. al., this cannot be good news.
Bill Ayers, the unrepentant domestic terrorist in whose house Barack Obama began his political career, now says that Obama should be tried for war crimes, according to an interview he did with Real Clear Politics.
Appearing on Fox and Friends Monday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin let the zingers fly. One of her targets was CBS reporter Elizabeth Palmer, who compared the Tea Party to hard-liners in Iran.
“Okay, Elizabeth, you just put the BS in CBS,” she said. “It’s things like that that people hear and see and realize how out of touch the lamestream, the mainstream media is. To compare, really, the Iranian revolutionaries with those who are patriots in America and just want government to live within its Constitution?”
Sarah Palin spoke Saturday at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s 2013 Road to Majority Conference, blasting Obama voters, the NSA, and Washington culture in general.
“It seems so Orwellian around here,” she said. “Before 1984, terms like ‘leading from behind’ meant following. The other day the White House testified before Congress, bragging that they used the ‘least untruthful statement.’ Where I come from that’s called a lie.”
On Thursday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi falsely characterized a bill that would prohibit abortions during the final four months and could not tell the difference between what abortionist Kermit Gosnell did to babies born alive and abortions that take place moments before the baby is born.
“As a practicing and respectful Catholic, this is sacred ground to me when we talk about this,” she said. “I don’t think it should have anything to do with politics.”
On Tuesday, UK Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald told reporters there are “dozens” of stories yet to be released on the NSA surveillance scandal.
Greenwald is one of the columnists who reported that 29-year-old Edward Snowden, a former technical assistant for the CIA and current employee of the defense contractor Booz Allen Hamilton, is the source of the leaks.
Early Tuesday morning, Scott Rohter, the owner of WePluribUS.net, issued what can only be construed as a public threat of intimidation and harassment against myself and other conservative bloggers who have taken exception to the way he treats people.
“I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT I AM NOT DONE JOE. I WILL NOT REST UNTIL PEOPLE KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT YOU… WHAT AN UNETHICIAL MAN YOU ARE, AND TOM HARRISON, AND TIM SELATY, AND DEAN CHAMBERS TOO. WHAT LIARS YOU ALL ARE INCLUDING DIANE SORRI. I will be watching you from now on Joe Newby,” he commented on my latest Examiner article about his site.
If you’re not familiar with the saga of Scott Rohter, you can get up to speed here. In a nutshell, he’s mad at me because I did not post on his site but did post on Facebook while balancing work, writing and family issues in the middle of a move. He hit me up for money and I told him this wasn’t a good time for that but I would consider it in a couple weeks after things had settled down a bit. He was okay at first but last Friday — out of the blue — he blasts me on Facebook, calling me a liar.
Since posting that article, I’ve heard from a lot of people who say they have suffered Rohter’s anger, and I’ve been given a piece of audio that, I think, pretty much speaks for itself.
It takes a lot of effort and a lot of money to run a successful social media website. Sometimes, you have to do a bit of fundraising to make things work the way you want and sometimes, you need to do some old-fashioned advertising.
But Scott Rohter, the appliance repairman who started WePluribUS.net, has a unique approach — and it’s not winning him many friends. His plan, it seems, is to berate users and call them names. If you don’t fold and give him cash, he bans you from the site, and from what I can see, it doesn’t seem to be working too well.
