* Bumped Up *

Half-Time Report, September 13, 2012 (Andy Levy’s commentary on the show at the half-way mark, usually humorous, but this one also has a GREAT summary of the violence in the Middle East) + Bernard McGuirk (Don Imus show) is on. Bernard knows news and remembers everything from past episodes of violence in the Middle East. JOHN BOLTON (!) is also on the panel and is funny but also RIGHT ON in his warnings about the Middle East and Obama’s stupidity (already described in Larry Johnson‘s latest posts — see right column for a list of ALL of Larry’s posts dating back to July).

(This half-time report includes the PB&J insanity from the principal at an elementary school in Portland, Oregon (WHERE ELSE? Portland, Oregon makes Santa Cruz look like Pat Roberts’ favorite hangout — except when he’s in West Hollywood. [That IS a joke.])

Oh good. This next one is not only Gutfeld’s monologue but The Five gang also get in on the conversation. Even Bob Beckel has a few lucid seconds (but only about 5%). Eric Bolling and Dana Perino hit that damn nail on its sore head yet again. (Dana’s even wilder than that biker chick Biden was hittin’ on the other day.)

What’s really being built under the White House?

    why backtrack should resign



    this article bothered me. backtrack did not attend intel meetings. per carney he read them on an I pad,
    Reading something and getting live input are two different things. I used to get the morning report ready and deliver it to bosses then they would sit down an discuss what was going on. each department got and idea of what the other dept needed and the general manager had a good oversight of the the whole division.
    since backtrack is a part time president, did jarrett attend the meetings? Did anyone in charge attend the meetings?

    • shelldoll2

      Exactly. When I had to brief my Commander I had to personally attend. My Commander was there as were all of the heads of their sections.

      We didn’t phone it in.

      This idiot doesn’t understand how you tell the bull from truth by reading body language.

      Guess he ain’t the smartest Prez evah after all.

  • HObama HObamanana

    Dear Mr. President,

    My daughter arrived home with a homework assignment that is due by Monday and has asked me to help her with it. Normally this isn’t a problem because I am always there for my children when they need me. Even though I cancelled all my other plans for the weekend, I’m having a real difficult time helping her. The assignment is about the Office of the President and his responsibilities to our Constitution. I really thought I understood all of this since I was in grade school. But since you are a constitutional law professor and went to a much better college than anything I could afford I figure you would know the answers much better than I. After all, you are the President so you should know what you are talking about.

    From what I remember, your responsibilities to our Constitution begin with an oath. And best as I can recall, that oath is this: I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

    Do I at least have that part right? I don’t want to teach my daughter something that isn’t true. As a father of two daughters I’m sure you understand. Since I don’t have time to wait for your response, I’ll just assume the history books are correct, for right now. But if you do get a chance to reply to me in between all those fundraisers and interviews with pimps that don’t walk right and Z fellers that don’t have no bitch problems, please do. Because I want my daughter to learn things right so she can be successful in life. Just do me one favor even if you are too busy to write right back right away. Tell that Letterman guy I think he is really funny.

    I don’t know why people have been giving you such a hard time about snubbing that Israeli Prime Minister. If I had to choose between being on Letterman and discussing international nuclear things (that ain’t nobody’s business except the good ole USA) with some guy named Bibi, I’d take Letterman every time. Besides, Bibi is a funny name for a man. It would make a good name for a pet though. Maybe you and Letterman can joke about that. He’s such a funny guy. I bet you are too, Mr. President.

    Anyway, I’ve been trying to understand this Oath of Office that you took before you officially became President. I say officially because, like I told the wife, when you beat up on Hillary Clinton so bad, calling her all those names and flipping her off on national television, I knew right then that you would be President. I hoped for it right on the spot. And I told my wife to iron my clothes. She didn’t mind none. She’s a good wife. Sorry, I keep forgetting what I meant to ask. It happens like that a lot Mr. President. I start thinking about questions to ask you and the next thing I know I am all over myself with praise for you. I know how all them media types feel. Yessiree I do. So anyway Mr. President, before I start embarrassing you I better ask my questions.

    According to the oath, you can swear to it or affirm it. Which did you do? I’d look on YouTube or search the internet and all that but since I lost my job I ain’t been able to afford that stuff. And none of my neighbors have either. But I don’t blame you for it. That George Bush really messed this country up probably for a hundred years or so. There I go again praising you and standing up for you. It’s hard not to Mr. President, but I’ll try.

    Well the reason I’m asking whether you swore or affirmed is because I’d always been taught that when you swear to something it’s like you are making a bond with it. And when you affirm something it’s like you are just agreeing with it. Like when the wife asks me if I’ve been drinking. If I don’t want her knowing, I’ll make up a story and when she confronts me about it I’ll just affirm that the story is true. I’d never swear to it, mind you, because I ain’t making no absolute bond with no one but God. So that’s why I was asking Mr. President. I just want to know whether you agreed with the oath or whether you sweared to God.

    My second question about that oath is: What does it mean that you will execute the Office of President of the United States? Does that mean you will kill it, like with a firing squad?

    Well look, I know I’m taking up a lot of your valuable time because I heard it was a nice sunny day in Washington D.C., just perfect for golf. So I’ll try to make these last few questions brief. Wouldn’t want to handicap you Mr. President. That’s a golf joke. Didn’t mean to imply nothing else just cause you talk to pimps having problems walking.

    So my next question about your oath is this: What does it mean by the best of my ability? Does that mean that if you aren’t very good it’s still ok? Or does that depend on whether you affirmed it or sweared to it?

    The reason I’m asking is I got this cousin that acts like he knows how to fix all kinds of things. People all the time assume he knows how to fix things cause he’s been telling folks for so long about his great fixin skills that he’s become like a fixin legend around here. The local paper did a story about him. Once one of them real purty television gals came by with cameras and interviewed him. It’s all people talked about for months. So when folks ask him if he can fix this or that he just sorta shakes his head like he is saying yes and they hire him on the spot. He won’t swear to it, mind you. Because he takes his bond with God seriously. But if someone thinks he knows how to fix things he’ll just shake his head like he is affirming it and off they go to get it fixed. And when he gets there, he makes up all kinds of things that are wrong so folks think he is real smart. Then he gets their money and says he is running out for parts. But in reality he is down at the bar having a few drinks, even buying drinks for friends.

    Once when he was affirming he could fix things for this elderly couple, he got their money and took off for a whole month. He went on vacation using their money. But since they was elderly and had that Alzheimers disease they didn’t even know. As a matter of fact, he kept coming back every day telling them the same thing was wrong, getting their money and drinking and buying drinks for everyone. Worked out real well for him and the couple didn’t notice none. And he was set for life until they up and died. He cried for two weeks solid. And so did his friends down at the bar.

    Well, I got one more question about your oath and then I’ll ask one more question that sort of depends on your answers to all these oath questions. What does it mean when it says that you will preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States? I mean, I know what all them words mean, but since it’s in an oath I’m figuring that all of them together mean something too. I know that if I wanted to make all those things happen I would probably hide the Constitution somewhere really safe where only I knew where it was so that no one else could find it. Is that what you have done Mr. President? Because I don’t remember any other President doing that before. But none of them were as smart as you, so maybe they never figured that part of the oath out before.

    Ok, Mr. President, that’s all the oath questions I have. My daughter thought she already knew the answers but I wanted to make sure she had right answers and figured you’d be the right person to ask. You being the President and all. But my last question to you has me stumped. My daughter has been worrying about the answer and me and the wife ain’t been no help. All the people in town we asked are confused and I even called my 9th grade history teacher and she wasn’t sure either. So I have to ask you and I hope you don’t mind. It’s ok if I hope isn’t it? That hasn’t changed has it?

    When I read the First Amendment to the Constitution that I got, it says this: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. Now I don’t know if you have the same Constitution or if it got changed and no one knows because you did like I would and hid it away somewhere where only you know where it is, so none of us would know if it got changed or not. But anyway, what I was telling my daughter is that that First Amendment is supposed to represent the first “Rights” of the people that the Declaration of Independence says Nature’s God gave us to begin with. Rights the government can not take away from us by writing laws.

    Now I think I understand most of this, but the part that has me confused is about the freedom of speech. The way I was always taught, it meant that even if you and I disagree, I could say something to you or you could say something to me that neither or both of us agreed on and that would be ok. I mean, even if it hurt my feelings that you disagreed with me that would be ok because the Constitution says so.

    But we don’t disagree on anything Mr. President. I worship the very ground you walk on. I just don’t understand everything and normally I wouldn’t care, but my daughter asked me for help and I know you love your daughters, so I know you understand. The wife said I should put that in there because of drones and you being able to kill American citizens whenever you like without no courts because you’re the President. And I don’t want you thinking that we disagree with anything you do or say.

    Unless I have the wrong Constitution, Mr. President. In which case please don’t kill me or my daughter. Don’t care about the wife because I know you are friends with them Muslims and they don’t care much for women.

    So do I have that part about free speech right Mr. President? Or is there some exception when we are speaking with Muslims and that’s in that Constitution that you’ve got hidden away so no one else will know where it’s hiding, because you take your Oath of Office so seriously?

    Anyway, thank you in advance for all the answers I know you are going to send. And don’t worry, I understand that you probably don’t have time to answer them directly. I won’t be offended if some machine sends them to me or I hear it from Jay Carney or the Nightly News. I know they all work for you and represent your will.

    Believe me, folks out here got it tough but not nearly as tough as you do, having to fly around the country all the time, going to parties with celebrities, posing for all those photos, giving speeches and asking for money all the time. Honestly, I don’t know how you do it. But I’m sure glad you are willing to work so hard and stand up for our (oops, I meant your) country by running for reelection.

      Thanks for the link Harp! Just another article to make my blood boil! My God – our economy is terrible, people are out of work here, half of our country is on some form of welfare, and our debt is sky-rocketing and we’re sending taxpayers (the ones who still pay taxes) money overseas to refurbish mosques. Even if these people were our friends, this is a horrendous waste of money. But to send it overseas to our enemies to help them destroy our property and murder Americans is beyond wasteful – it’s criminal!

  • HARP2

    The media manage to avoid showing these images of the real reason they are upset.

  • HObama HObamanana

    What’s wrong with this picture?

    Reporters at the briefing pointed out that the officials on that conference call noted that they were giving out preliminary information that might have been wrong and if the State Department doesn’t talk about the night’s events ever again, that wrong information would remain uncorrected in the public sphere.

    “The U.S. government is going to be happy to let incorrect information stand?” one reporter asked.

    “I will make a personal pledge to you that if I become aware that information we gave that first night is radically wrong in a way that you deserve to know, I will do my best to get that information to you,” Nuland said. “But I have to respect the fact that this is now a crime scene.”

    Emphasis my own

    • HARP2

      If Obama fell on his ass, at least 5 or 6 media types would end up with broken noses.

    • CathyInKs

      So our government is telling us the information they gave out was wrong but they don’t have to correct it unless they deem it necessary to do so. I’m beginning to think what separates us from non-democratic governments is just a matter of “degree”!

      • HObama HObamanana

        That is exactly the same way I understood the comments. I’m beginning to think that there is no separation, just better smoke and mirrors.

  • Roninstia

    Contrasts! I call your attention to the photo at the top of this interview. Note Mitt sitting up straight and confident and at a respectful distance is George slouched over. Now think about the Sarah Palin interview by Charlie Gibson where their knees were almost touching and he loomed over her to the point of simple phsyical domination.

  • HObama HObamanana

    Mitt Romney was right. And he is still right. Despite claims from the Obama Administration that the apology for offending the poor widdle feelings of Muslims over some stupid film wasn’t “cleared” with the WH or State Department and didn’t represent their position, remarks by SOS Clinton since, over and over again, merely repeat the same apology without using the words “I’m sorry” in front of them.

    We are a nation of rights, enshrined in and informed by our Constitution. We don’t apologize to anyone for that. If anyone’s poor widdle feelings are hurt by that then so be it. We are Americans and frankly we don’t give a damn. I’ll take one red, white and blue over 1.5 billion black banners any day of the week, any week in a year and any year of any lifetime.

    • Hokma

      And they are still apologizing by blaming all of this on a on-line film.

      You watch the news or pick up a daily newspaper (particularly ones that use AP wire service) and it all directly reflects the propaganda emanating from the WH.

      We use to joke about Pravda as just a propaganda tool of the Soviet Union leaders and how our news media was never tied to the government and was the People’s tool to tell us the truth.

      Now look at what we have.AP, CBS, NBC, ABS, PBS, CNN, MSLSD, NY Times, Washington Post/Politico, and pretty much every daily newspaper are Pravda – the mouthpiece of Barack Obama and not a credible news service.

      Obama’s strategy has been to use this corrupt media to indoctrinate the people into a false knowledge of Obama through the news and through corrupt polling practices.

      • HELENK2

    I thought I’d share this email I received from a young woman I met 5 or 6 years ago. She was working at a city non profit where I was sponsoring a short-term program. I only saw her a couple of times. We exchanged email addresses. Via email, some time later, she informed that she was leaving her job and starting a student tutoring service. I give you this background because it highlights what attitude is influencing many children today and that, in fact, there are black people who are racist.
    This first part is from an email she received from Axelrod.
    Adelson, the conservative billionaire Las Vegas casino owner, has pledged to
    give up to $100 million — whatever it takes — to defeat Barack Obama.

    We know it’s not out of love for Mitt Romney, so why part with so much money?
    As President Clinton reminded us last week, sometimes the answer is as simple
    as arithmetic.

    So let’s do the math: According to a new report from the Center for American
    Progress Action Fund, Adelson could see up to $2 billion in savings under Mitt
    Romney’s tax plan versus the President’s plan. That’s how much Romney’s
    policies would favor millionaires and billionaires.

    If Mitt Romney wins — $2 billion more for Adelson. If Barack Obama wins,
    millionaires and billionaires pay their fair share.

    It’s a highly cynical but straightforward calculation.
    The email continues, of course and begs for a small donation as usual.
    Now, below is what this “teacher” added to the email and forwards to those on her list serv.

    Ok , I gotta call it
    like I see it. These white people will stop at nothing to get OUR
    PRESIDENT out of office. It has zero to do w/Obama’s
    policies/decisions. People let’s “CALL A THANG, A THANG.”
    INTELLIGENT ONE. And, yes I chip in my donations and suggest that all of
    you do the same if you can. Romney will have us back at
    “SWEETHOME,” if we allow him to get into office. We betta

    • shelldoll2

      Ah the old “It’s the White man’s fault” argument.

      There’s only one problem with that. That same excuse has been used for black on black violence.

      When an elderly black couple gets killed by black intruders? It’s the white man’s fault!

      When a black woman gets raped by a black man?
      It’s the white man’s fault!

      What revolution will be televised? The one where black folks rip one another off in the name of “justice”?

      What slays me is these so-called black “revolutionaries” refuse to acknowledge the fact that economically and socially black folks are worse off under Obama. They are blinded by their ideology.

      Keep thinking Barack will save you. You mean like he saved those black folks in the inner city of Chicago in his own district?

      Oh wait. He did nothing for them and let his slumlord buddy continue on his way as long as he contributed to his campaign.

      Stop with the fake he’s for us cuz he’s a black man meme. Otherwise black unemployment wouldn’t be double what it was under GWB.

      But these black Obama worshippers don’t care about that.

      They never learned the lesson of MLK Jr., who literally died for what he believed in.

      It’s not the color of your skin but the content of your character.

      Or to put it bluntly:

      Actions talk and bullsh*t walks. Take a walk Obama.

      Yeah … and I can’t make a joke about Muslims breeding like rabbits as part of their worldwide “mommy jihad” to grow themselves some more suicide bombers without it being suggested that it;s insensitive. (Worse yet: I suggested that unmarried young girls may have been impregnated by their fathers, brothers, uncles, cousins, imams because not only is there no birth control, there’s no abortion in case of incest. All that we can be sure that will happen is that, IF the poor young girl can nurse the baby, they’ll wait until they stone her to death.)

      But, the person who suggested my remarks were insensitive IS correct. It’s just that I am so pissed off, I honestly don’t give a damn.

      Just ask anyone in Europe or, hell, Tennessee about the growing numbers of Muslims, soon to outrank French, German, Spanish, Norwegian, Swedish, and Italian birth rates. Worse yet, all the European Muslims live off the government dime. … like the extremist Jews in Israel who believe that work is for other people because THEY are special.

      Should anyone see this comment (doubtful), they’ll spread word that No Quarter tolerates racists (just like in 2008 when we dared to prefer Hillary to Barack).
