@Spam reporting on Twitter works – and as with anything that works, leave it to a lib to abuse and break it
I’ve seen this happen repeatedly on Twitter: a conservative will fight back against an attack by a lib, and the lib will call in his/her friends who will in turn block and report the conservative for Spam. Or, yeah I’ve seen a conservative pick the fight too, and with the same result. That result being the conservative gets his/her account suspended. Seldom, if ever, the lib.
It happened again tonight (Sunday):
— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) April 30, 2012
Just as with @FreeMarket_US last week, Twitter has suspended the account of conservative Chis Loesch. Chis is the husband of talk radio host and CNN contributor Dana Loesch and is very active on Twitter. Once again, Twitter’s reasons for suspending Chris’s account are not clear.
However, as @RBPundit and @lheal point out, it is likely due to liberals abusing Twitter’s system for reporting spam.

So if you follow the whole post, Chris got suspended, reinstated, then re-suspended, and for what? Defending his wife.
Chris’ wife is Dana Loesch, just a girl on Twitter who during the early days of TCOT ended up being such a well-spoken and fired-up person that people naturally followed her forward. In other words, the antithesis of what many in the Tea Party movement turned out to be – posers.
So, she met Andrew Breitbart on her way upward, and naturally has a big scarlet letter (or bulls eye) on her back, stuck there by the always caring liberal herd. She works for Breitbart’s “Big” site, as well as making appearances on CNN. BIG target.
The lib locusts even talk about Dana being raped:
Earlier this evening my husband, Chris Loesch, had his Twitter account suspended. There have been stories going around of conservatives getting suspended from Twitter over innocuous things while accounts like @KillZimmerman (an account which threatened to kill George Zimmerman) and other such accounts were left active for weeks. After a user remarked about me being raped and murdered, Chris and others defended me.
I’m used to it, it’s part of the territory of doing what I do, enduring hate like this daily. Unfortunately, some progressives disliked that Chris pushed back against it as well. His account was suspended, yet this individual’s account, and the account of those who say far worse to me and others, are left alone.
The side espousing ”tolerance” and “understanding”, and “can’t we all just get along?” sinks to these depths today.
They can’t get to her, it seems, without going after those she loves, in this case, her husband. Going after the family. Isn’t that just what Liberalism is all about, today? Thuggery, mob mentality, non-think or group-think. Even have to repeat everything they’re told, in the form of a chant, to make sure it’s properly drilled into their heads.
Yeah, this is your Democrat Party.

From the US Marines Facebook page:
Last year, more than 30,000 young Americans became U.S. Marines. They did it through the efforts of their drill instructors. Watch what it takes to make a Marine.
Like their Facebook page. Don’t want these guys mad at ya.
Oh, and check out these teachers and counselors from Wisconsin who flew to California to experience Marine boot camp first hand:
CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. — When high school counselors tour colleges, they step into the shoes of a student. However, college isn’t the only option for graduates. Many are called to join the military. FOX6 News traveled with a group of educators as they stepped into the boots of Marines-in-training to get a glimpse of what boot camp is like.
While it takes years to become a teacher, it takes just 13 weeks to become a U.S. Marine. For three days, educators were able to experience first hand the extreme difference between the two sets of training.
Two teachers from Wilmot, one from Waterford, counselors from Racine and Cudahy, plus one Menomonee Falls principal went on the trip of a lifetime. They traveled into the field of Marine Corps boot camp. The mission was to experience first hand what it takes to earn the title ofU.S. Marine.
“The process essentially hasn’t changed in over 200 years, but there’s a lot of fallacies and misconceptions out there on how Marines are made, and what we do here on the dept. We need to educate the educators. They need to see what we’re really like. We’re not the stereotypical Marines that you might see in the movies,” Marine Sgt. Major Peter Siaw said.
Marines may be the country’s first line of defense, but teachers are on the front lines, helping the nation’s youth decide their future. “I’ve talked to every single student about what they’re looking for, and military is always an option,” Horlick High School counselor Kate Kulinski said. “It’s kind of hard to talk to them when you really don’t know exactly what it is they’re going to be doing,” Cudahy High School counselor Amy Oost said.

I guess Meghan McCain missed the memo: Sandra Fluke is a leftist plant?

Come to think of it, maybe she’s fully aware. I think Meghan is a plant, too. The green leafy kind.
Saw this not long ago after an exchange between author David Limbaugh and some anonymous leftist;
Lib: “U are racist bc you wrote a book critical of Obama.” Me: I’d vote for Thomas Sowell or Alan West etc 4 pres.” Lib: “They’re not black”
— David Limbaugh (@DavidLimbaugh) April 28, 2012
Isn’t it funny that after years of arbitrarily sorting people by the color of their skin suddenly now they reject some of those same folk despite their skin color? If you don’t believe certain things are true, whether they are true or not, you’re kicked out of the “tribe”. Isn’t that what it really is? Tribal bullcrap? In the melting pot that is America?
Those same leftists can call out perceived “racism” simply based on the same ideological differences. Disagree with Obama, you are a racist. You don’t get to decide by the color of his skin or your own.
Lets take the subjects to the leftist’s obvious (to me) racism:
Allen West, a Republican retired Army Colonel, is a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, a group of dark-toned (generally, and of African heritage) members of the US House of Representatives. They seem content that Allen West is “black enough” that he’s included. Are they “racist” also?
Thomas Sowell is an 81-year-old economist, former professor at UCLA, the Urban Institute, Brandeis University, and Cornell University. You want to talk about racism? He’s seen it. He grew up under the separatist policies of the 1930s through the 1960s. Colored bathrooms and drinking fountains. He’s seen more racism than most of the people calling him “Uncle Tom” have ever had nightmares of.
He knows racism when he sees it. He sees it on the left side of the aisle. The Democrat side. Sowell writes;
Black civil rights attorneys and activists who denounce whites for objecting to the bussing of kids from the ghetto into their neighborhood schools have not hesitated to send their own children to private schools, instead of subjecting them to this kind of “diversity” in the public schools.
As for whites, author Harry Stein says that many white liberals “give blacks a pass on behaviors and attitudes they would regard as unacceptable and even abhorrent in their own kind.” This, of course, is no favor to those particular blacks — especially those among young ghetto blacks whose counterproductive behavior puts them on a path that leads nowhere but to welfare, at best, and behind bars or death in gangland street warfare at worst.
Are we not all Americans here? Can we stop polluting discourse by constantly injecting skin color into everything?
The reason for the leftist’s attack against David Limbaugh is the book he recently wrote titled “Crimes Against Liberty: An Indictment of President Barack Obama.” -
As Americans, liberty is an inalienable right that is granted to us by God, protected by the Constitution, and upheld by our government. Yet, Barack Obama doesn’t seem to share that view. To him, liberty is a threat to the government’s power and something to be squashed by any means possible, as bestselling author David Limbaugh shows to devastating effect in his new book, Crimes Against Liberty. In Crimes Against Liberty, Limbaugh issues a damning indictment of President Barack Obama for encroaching upon and stripping us of our individual and sovereign rights. Laying out his case like he would a criminal complaint, Limbaugh presents the evidence—count-by-count—against Obama. From exploiting the financial crisis for political gain, to restricting our personal freedoms through invasive healthcare and “green” policies, to endangering America with his feckless diplomacy and reckless dismantlement of our national security systems, Limbaugh proves—beyond a reasonable doubt—that Obama is guilty of crimes against liberty.
The book has nothing to do with the color of anyone’s skin, it simply lays out the case that B. Hussein Obama is the wrong man to be President of the US, that’s it. That’s all.

What a sick and twisted mindset
Seriously, “crucifying” them;
Via Heritage a statement from Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK):
His comments are indicative of the “EPA’s war on fossil fuels,” claimed Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) in a news release on Wednesday.
Yes, via a speech on the House floor Inhofe stated “this video gives us a rare glimpse into Obama’s true agenda” and he has launched investigations.
Not like we didn’t already know this was their way of thinking, but it now appears the leftists at the EPA feel so smug and secure in their tactics that they now speak about them openly.
Time for this administration to go. Past time.

If you’ve never heard of this movie, I’m not going to tell you what it’s about, just that it’s 30 minutes long, and deals with a great evil – and also a tremendous good.
I’ve had this video saved for a week or more, meaning to watch it. Tonight, I did, and I wish more could:

Confused liberal, obviously.
From a group called “Free Market America“,
The environmental agenda has been infected by extremism—it’s become an economic suicide pact. And we’re here to challenge it. On Earth Day, visit www.freemarketamerica.org.
We’re Free Market America.
Our mission is to defend economic freedom against environmental extremism. Since the 1960s, environmental regulation has skyrocketed by over 7,000 percent! It’s a no-brainer that everyone wants clean water and clean air. But when it comes to environmental regulation, we’ve catapulted past commonsense.
The Small Business Administration estimates that environmental regulation costs America’s economy over $281 billion – every year. For a small business owner, the cost of regulation averages over $4,000 per worker. Those costs get passed onto our nation’s consumers in the form of higher product costs and, inevitably, fewer jobs for working Americans.
How did we get here?
Free Market America began as Free Market Florida. In 2011, we began campaigning against the U.S. EPA’s so-called “Water Tax” – a Florida-focused measure that would’ve required the water in roadside drainage canals to meet the same standards as Florida’s pristine rivers and streams. Economists estimated the “Water Tax” would’ve cost Florida’s farmers, taxpayers, businesses and consumers billions each year.
A year earlier, in 2010, we led a coalition of more than 330 business, civic and labor groups against a Sierra Club-backed ballot initiative that aimed to shut down economic growth in the Sunshine State. We won that battle; but we realized that fringe environmental groups are well-financed litigation engines determined to steamroll commonsense whenever it’s convenient for them. We founded Free Market Florida to fight back.
Now, we’re taking the same approach to environmental issues of national concern. That’s why we want to hear from you. Where is environmental extremism threatening the free market? Drop us a line.
Environmental extremists are destroying our economy, and our country. The gears are grinding to a halt thanks to Obama and his EPA. They went from learning to stop blatant industrial polluters and teaching Americans to pick up after themselves to stopping everything, and demonizing humanity itself.
Somebody with the guts to turn this nation back to reality needs to replace Obama in November.

Seriously? And this stuff in the swag bag wasn’t even made in the USA!
Just a year ago, GSA deputy commissioner Daniel Voll pleaded guilty of embezzling some $61,000 from the government. Little warning signs that were ignored?
A little over a year later, we get what happens below.
The Obama regime would rather we pay attention to more important things, like Silver Spoons, or an imaginary GOP “War on Women” than the real issue – zero leadership at the top.
