It warms my heart to see the mainstream media doing its job (well somewhat and only with Benghazi, IRS and the AP). Now its time for them to prove their meddle. Since they are awake, alert and paying attention, perhaps they could investigate the twenty scandals ignored since Obama became President in January 2009.
According to the information about the Justice Dept. investigation of the Associated Press, Holder’s troops got the phone information of 100 reporters Hey AP this is a great way to get back at the administration assign each of the stories below to a reporter, you still would have 80 others to cover other news.
What about the other news organizations–I am not asking they investigate all twenty, perhaps they could split them up one or two per liberal media organization.
Here’s my twenty–I am sure there are others but with these twenty plus the three new ones the mainstream media has enough–they have five years to catch up on:
Going to war in Libya without first seeking congressional approval.
The administration’s screwing of the primary GM investors so he could give the company to his buddies in the UAW.
Offering Joe Sestak a White House job to drop out of the Senate race against Arlen Specter
Offering Andrew Romanoff a White House job to drop out of the Senate Race against Michael Bennett.
Dropping an already won case against the New Black Panthers.
Refusing to prosecute African Americans for Civil Rights violations.
Ignoring a court order to ease up on restrictions against deep water drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, instead issuing tougher restrictions.
Circumventing the Senate by setting up a “shadow cabinet” of Czars.
Obama’s Justice Department’s refusal to defend the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).
Ignoring his constitutional responsibility to defend laws passed by Congress.
Firing (and slandering) AmeriCorps inspector general Gerald Walpin after because he was investigating Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson a friend of the Obamas.
Practicing crony capitalism and wasting taxpayer money with Green energy loans to Solyndra and other failing companies.
No bid contract given to a company owned by major Obama donor for a small pox vaccine that doesn’t work.
Fast and Furious: Giving guns to Mexican drug cartels in an attempt to take away guns from law abiding Americans.
Making recess appointments when congress was not in recess.
Trampling on the Catholic Church’s first amendment rights by forcing them to pay for procedures and drugs that their faith bans.
The GSA and Secret Service scandals neither of which should be blamed on Obama directly, both of which show his poor management of the federal government.
Receiving foreign donations for his 2012 campaign.
Slashing the pensions of Delphi’s non-union employees leaving the UAW employees’ pensions alone.
The Administration purchasing bullets to drive up costs/ empty supply.
Prosecuting Thomas Drake, NSA whistle-blower who leaked unclassified information about government waste and fraud.
and ran to the bog.
There, mired to his waist in black muck, was a terrified boy, screaming and struggling to free himself. Farmer Fleming saved the lad from what could have been a slow and terrifying death.
The next day, a fancy carriage pulled up to the Scotsman’s sparse surroundings. An elegantly dressed nobleman stepped out and introduced himself as the father of the boy Farmer Fleming had saved.
‘I want to repay you,’ said the nobleman. ‘You saved my son’s life.’
‘No, I can’t accept payment for what I did,’ the Scottish farmer replied waving off the offer. At that moment, the farmer’s own son came to the door of the family hovel.
‘Is that your son?’ the nobleman asked.
‘Yes,’ the farmer replied proudly.
‘I’ll make you a deal. Let me provide him with the level of education my own son will enjoy If the lad is anything like his father, he’ll no doubt grow to be a man we both will be proud of.’ And that he did.
Farmer Fleming’s son attended the very best schools and in time, graduated from St. Mary’s Hospital Medical School in London, and went on to become known throughout the world as the noted Sir Alexander Fleming, the discoverer of Penicillin.
Years afterward, the same nobleman’s son who was saved from the bog was stricken with pneumonia.
What saved his life this time? Penicillin.
The name of the nobleman? Lord Randolph Churchill . His son’s name?
Sir Winston Churchill.
Someone once said: What goes around comes around.
Work like you don’t need the money.
Love like you’ve never been hurt.
Dance like nobody’s watching.
Sing like nobody’s listening.
Live like it’s Heaven on Earth.

‘REX IS MY PARTNER, I LOVE HIM’: RETIRED MARINE FIGHTS TO ADOPT MILITARY DOG BEFORE IT’S PUT TO SLEEP
Marine Cpl. Megan Leavey served with her four-legged partner Sgt. Rex through two tours in Iraq, completing hundreds of missions searching for roadside bombs until an insurgent explosion took them both out of service.
More than five years later, Leavey, 28, is fighting to adopt the dog she handled since her earliest days as a Marine before the German shepherd is put to sleep.
“Rex is my partner, I love him,” Leavey, who lives with her father in Rockport, N.Y. and works as a dog handler, told MSNBC. “We have been through so much together…I’ve spent day and night with this dog. It’s a very strong bond.”
Leavey was discharged in Dec. 2007, but Rex — considered a valuable work dog — was put back in service after he recovered from his injuries. That was until a month ago, when he was diagnosed with a kind of nerve paralysis that left him unable to serve, the Westchester Journal News reported.
It’s now a race against the clock as Leavey struggles to cut through military red tape and adopt Rex before he is put down.
“As a safety precaution, they don’t give all dogs away,” she told the Journal News. She said Rex, a strong “alpha dog,” never hurt anyone he wasn’t supposed to.
“The dilemma with me is the minute they say he can’t be adopted, because he‘s sick and because he can’t work, they’d have to put him to sleep,” she said. “Not because he’s too sick to live a good life, but because they can‘t utilize him so it wouldn’t make sense for them to keep a dog they’re not going to work at the kennels. I don’t want to let that happen.”
But time is ticking, she said.
“This is not [the Marines'] first priority,” Leavey told New York Fox affiliate WNYW-TV. “A lot of times it gets lost in the shuffle.”
To help speed the process up, she reached out to veteran’s organizations and to Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), who sent a letter to Air Force Secretary Michael Donley, who oversees military service dog training. In the letter, Schumer detailed the relationship Leavey and Rex had and credited them with saving countless lives, according to the Journal News.
If Leavey’s request is granted, Rex will enjoy a sizable home with a fenced-in yard. Until she hears more, all she can do is wait.
“It’s a partnership,” Leavey told the newspaper. “I feel like I know Rex so well. I’m so looking forward to seeing him again.”
“WE HAVE TO START SOMEWHERE”
(Oct. 20, 2011) — On October 5, 2011, the following national call was released to the public –
“An undisclosed number of American Veterans and former service members have come together to prepare and present this Call-to-Action on behalf of the U.S. Constitution, the Republic, the Rule of Law and equal justice for all freedom loving citizens of the United States of America. Acting together as one, via The Veteran Defenders of America, co-sponsored by civilian patriot group The Unites States Patriots Union, LLC – we issue the following CALL for peaceful disobedience.
We CALL upon every member of federal, state and local government, legislative, judicial, law enforcement and military, who have taken an oath to protect and defend the Constitutional Republic from all enemies, foreign and domestic, to act upon those oaths for the stated purpose of restoring the Constitutional Republic.
We CALL upon ALL veterans and veteran organizations in America, who still believe in their oath to protect and defend, to unite with us at once – in this Declaration to Restore the Constitutional Republic.
We CALL for ALL citizens who still desire freedom and liberty, to stand with us in peaceful protest, and carry our demands to right the wrongs against our nation in the preservation of freedom, liberty, justice and the rule of law.”
(The full Call-to-Action is available here.)
This National Call-to-Action for Veterans Day, November 11, 2011 in Washington D.C. is scheduled for 0600 EST at the Washington Monument.
The call is led by MG Paul Vallely, Col. James Harding and Col. Harry Riley of Veteran Defenders of America (VDA), a service member division of The United States Patriots Union. Both are member-only organizations formed and funded by an undisclosed number of members.
The Veterans organization focuses on matters of national security and defense of the US Constitution, freedom and liberty. Patriots Union is an advanced patriot group focused on tangible strategies for reclaiming the republic, ending corruption and tyranny in government and returning the power to the American people.
Together, they prepared and launched a nation-wide Call-to-Action to ALL freedom loving Americans willing to fight for their right to live free from government tyranny. But they also issued a Code of Conduct for their event in D.C. scheduled on 11.11.11…
The Call-to-Action has gone viral on the internet, thanks to vital coverage by conservative news outlets like World Net Daily, Canada Free Press and Post & Email. Veterans, patriots and groups have been joining the Call-to-Action since and it’s beginning to look like patriots across the country are finally ready to join forces for real solutions.
In any movement, there are two types of participants, active and passive. Over the last hundred years, as our constitution and nation was being systematically destroyed, only a relative few were active participants in the destruction.
But most Americans were indeed passive participants in that destruction, sitting silent as the destruction took place, thereby passively participating by default, via their inaction.
Today, a Call-to-Action has been issued that requires active participation from people who are passive by nature. The average American may be angry about what is happening in their country, but how many are truly ready to do whatever it might take to end the madness?
When asked who is supporting this Call-to-Action, VDA’s Col. Harding responded as follows – “Every red blooded American we reach is on board, except those who will never be on board.”
Harding went on to explain – “it is much easier to list who is not on board at this point.” – “leftists who have a very anti-American vision for America, people who have not yet accepted that there is no political solution now and those who have a seat at the table of corruption, are not on board.” – “Everyone else we reach is on board…”
The Code of Conduct clearly indicates that the group’s call is for peaceful resistance on 11.11.11. The likelihood that Obama & Co. will resign on request is zero. The odds that members of congress will do the right thing and impeach are also slim. So, what is the real goal of the 11.11.11 event?
Co-Founder of Patriots Union Timothy Harrington explains – “We have to start somewhere. We are hoping to show D.C. insiders that the people have had enough. That the time for talking has passed and the time for serious action to save this nation has arrived.”
“Every member of every branch of government has taken an oath to uphold and protect the constitution and the people of the United States and it’s high time we see which of them is ready to live up to that oath.” – said Harrington.
The event calls upon all freedom loving citizens fed up with the corruption and tyranny in D.C. to take a stand with their veterans at the Washington Monument on November 11, 2011. Additional information is being released at the organizations web sites as available.
