While my favorite of the night came through, I hated to see Danielle Stallings eliminated. Glad to see Tom, Turf and Tim Hockenberry go through. Hmmm the Three T’s…

The entertainment was good as always.

Background: { ~JP In-Depth } Schools Should Be Modeled After Madrassas

Fox News host Sean Hannity interviews Brigitte Gabriel of ACT for America and Michael Ghouse on US Congressman Andre Carson’s statement that American schools should be modeled after Madrassas with their foundation as the Koran and on the second topic of the White House invitation to the Muslim Brotherhood.

A madrassa is an Islamic religious school. Many of the Taliban were educated in Saudi-financed madrassas in Pakistan that teach Wahhabism, a particularly austere and rigid form of Islam which is rooted in Saudi Arabia. Around the world, Saudi wealth and charities contributed to an explosive growth of madrassas during the Afghan jihad against the Soviets. During that war (1979-1989), a new kind of madrassa emerged in the Pakistan-Afghanistan region — not so much concerned about scholarship as making war on infidels. The enemy then was the Soviet Union, today it’s America. Here are analyses of the madrassas from interviews with Vali Nasr, an authority on Islamic fundamentalism, and Richard Holbrooke, former U.S. ambassador to the U.N. (For more on the role of madrassas in producing militant Islamists, see the story of Haroun Fazul.)

In another attempt to censor the Internet SOPA is reborn by Congress this time as the Intellectual Property Attache Act

In the past several months, Congress has attempted to police and control the Internet with bills such as PIPA, SOPA and CISPA. But due to blackout campaigns by websites such as Wikipedia, Google and Reddit and protest from citizens, the legislation has been shot down repeatedly. Now the hydra has reared a new head this time known as the Intellectual Property Attache Act. Aaron Swartz, founder and executive director for Demand Progress, joins us to examine how similar SOPA and IPAA really are.

About 2016: Obama’s America

2016 Obama’s America takes audiences on a gripping visual journey into the heart of the world’s most powerful office to reveal the struggle of whether one man’s past will redefine America over the next four years. The film examines the question, “If Obama wins a second term, where will we be in 2016?”

Across the globe and in America, people in 2008 hungered for a leader who would unite and lift us from economic turmoil and war. True to America’s ideals, they invested their hope in a new kind of president, Barack Obama. What they didn’t know is that Obama is a man with a past, and in powerful ways that past defines him–who he is, how he thinks, and where he intends to take America and the world.

Immersed in exotic locales across four continents, best selling author Dinesh D’Souza races against time to find answers to Obama’s past and reveal where America will be in 2016. During this journey he discovers how Hope and Change became radically misunderstood, and identifies new flashpoints for hot wars in mankind’s greatest struggle. The journey moves quickly over the arc of the old colonial empires, into America’s empire of liberty, and we see the unfolding realignment of nations and the shape of the global future.

Emotionally engaging, 2016 Obama’s America will make you confounded and cheer as you discover the mysteries and answers to your greatest aspirations and worst fears.

Love him or hate him, you don’t know him.

The Blaze has secured a second clip from the film. Rather than focusing upon Obama’s relationship with his brother, this exclusive footage delves into the president’s kinship with avowed communist Frank Marshall Davis.

If you’re unfamiliar with this controversial figure, consider Dr. Paul G. Kengor, author of the upcoming Mercury Ink book about Davis called “The Communist,” and his recent Blaze contributor piece in which he further explains who he is. Kengor writes:

I know this area intimately well, given that my next book is on Obama’s mentor during those precise years: Frank Marshall Davis. I will not here lay out the litany of Davis’s astonishing career, but, in essence, he was a literal card-carrying member of Communist Party USA. For decades, he wrote the most harsh, outlandish pro-Soviet material you can imagine, with his worst demons being Democrats like Harry Truman and the men in Truman’s administration—George Marshall among them—who opposed Stalin and the Kremlin during the darkest days of the Cold War.

As I lay out in the book, Davis’s work was so bad that he was called to testify on his “Soviet activities” by the Senate Judiciary Committee (run by Democrats), was carefully investigated by the FBI (Davis’s FBI file is 600 pages long), and, most remarkably, was placed on the federal government’s Security Index—meaning that in the event of war breaking out between the United States and USSR, Davis could be immediately arrested.

And yet, this was the man that Obama’s grandfather, Stanley Dunham, connected to a young Obama for the purpose of mentoring—precisely during these high school years.

Frank Marshall Davis is another of those radical associations in Obama’s past. There are so many, and so unusually bad, that Obama, if he were a typical citizen, probably wouldn’t get a security clearance for an entry-level government job.

In the clip, D’Souza takes viewers through the intriguing — some would argue disturbing — relationship between Obama and Davis. In the footage, D’Souza speaks, in detail, with Kengor about this connection and attempts to break it down for viewers:

State begins cross-checking records, finds 420 suspicious cases

To receive state unemployment benefits, one must be looking for a job and available to work.

Both those requirements are hard to fulfill in a prison cell.

So in hopes of reducing fraud, the Illinois Department of Employment Security has begun making a weekly comparison of its beneficiaries against the records of 70,000 inmates in state penitentiaries and county jails.

The project, which started two weeks ago at the urging of state legislators, already has identified 420 people who were receiving unemployment benefits while incarcerated, according to department spokesman Greg Rivara.

It’s too early to know how much money might be saved from the program, Rivara said. But the average beneficiary receives about $320 each week. Multiply that by the 420 inmates uncovered so far, and there could be $134,000 in potential weekly savings — or nearly $7 million a year.

It’s worth noting that someone can be both an inmate and a legitimate unemployment recipient. The department is not yet sure how many of the 420 recipients might fit into that category.

The Department of Employment Security is asking the 420 inmates receiving benefits to appear at a department office to verify their eligibility. If someone is not able to appear, Rivara said, that could be a strong indication that he or she is in jail and thus ineligible for payments.

Those found to be defrauding the unemployment system could be prosecuted.

~ Yah, good luck with that!

Harry Reid

A sexual position where you climb on top and then do absolutely nothing. Named for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV). Under his lack of leadership, the Senate failed to pass a budget in 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012. He also blocked votes on numerous jobs bills passed by the House of Representatives.
I spent so long trying to talk her into bed that when I finally got on, I pulled a ‘Harry Reid’ and fell asleep.

He talked a big game, but it turns out he was completely clueless. It was like sleeping with ‘Harry Reid’.

My attraction to Urban Dictionary, which you all know I’ve used often, has been elevated :)

Love this made news at FOX Nation, but the Nation (Our Nation not the dims), is one of only two worthwhile entities over at FOX now. These are the moments I wish I knew how to create a video because SO much is running thru me little head right now. (LOL)

Kinda, sorta like “That’s a clown question, bro”

This ad points out the fact that Obama’s claim has been debunked by the Washington Post and Factcheck.org–( see below) and reminds voters that “Candidate Obama lied about Hillary Clinton” in 2008. The message is: if you can’t trust President Obama to tell the truth, how can you trust him to lead?

Just like he did against Hillary Clinton, President Obama now continues to spread dishonest attacks about Mitt Romney to distract from his failed record. Even though fact check after fact check have found his claims to be false, he continues to not tell the truth to the American people. It is no wonder why our country has lost confidence in his leadership.

The Romney campaign is taking some significant risks with this commercial. (JUST as he did with his NAACP Speech) One is that it repeats the false charge Obama has made against Romney, reminding viewers that Obama claimed Romney “shipped jobs overseas.” Another risk is that it is deliberately sharp in its language about Obama, telling viewers that he “lied” and is running a “dishonest campaign.” The Romney campaign is showing an increased willingness to encounter these risks, however, in order to take the fight to Obama–and to show its own supporters that it is not afraid to do so, much as Romney showed yesterday in his address to a somewhat hostile NAACP crowd.

The payoff for Romney is earned media, since the ad will be debated by journalists today and for the rest of the week, as well as renewed confidence from conservatives that he intends to take the risks necessary to win.

NOTE: ‘Washington Post’ Backs Off Claim Romney Outsourced Jobs (caught for the third time in as many months)

Obama’s Stimulus Used to Create Jobs Overseas

Because it was the corrupt Washington Post that in coordination with the Obama campaign launched the false attack about Romney being an outsourcer, I’m going with that headline. It is accurate, after all. Certainly more accurate than the Post changing the definition of outsourcing to, “Something Romney didn’t do but we’re going to accuse him of doing anyway.”

The Post’s fact checker, Glenn Kessler, finds fault with much of the GOP’s data accusing Obama of outsourcing jobs and money with the taxpayer-funded stimulus — but in the end, wayyyyy at the bottom of his article, Kessler is forced to admit to this before awarding the GOP three pinocchios:

On a broad-brush basis, the RNC’s central claim has a bit of truth in it — some jobs were likely created overseas and some money went overseas[.]

In other words, there is some truth to the GOP’s charges that the stimulus funded jobs overseas. On the other hand, there is ZERO truth in what Obama and the Washington Post said about Romney and outsourcing.

What’s most fascinating, though, is the White House itself has yet (as far as I know) to fight back against the RNC’s claims.

Silly me. Why would they, when they have the lapdog Washington Post to do it for them?
