As President Obama’s campaign has been caught lying about its knowledge concerning a vicious smear run by his Super PAC, Cincinnati small business owner Debra Krause-McDonnell appeared on Cavuto to discuss the Obama campaign ad featuring her deli against her will. This is just another example of how President Obama’s campaign continues to use negative smear campaigns in a thinly veiled attempt to mislead Ohio voters…or as Debra Krause-McDonnell said on air, how the Obama campaign placed her “little store in a nasty political arena that we never asked to be in.”
Yes, we have lived through #AttackWatch, “get college credit for being an OFA intern, “host a summer organizer at your home (fat chance)” and now “Truth Teams” from Obama.
But a new low has happened this day. I am so accustomed to dumping emails from the Obama campaign, this one escaped me until I happened across it at The Blaze:
Yes, in lieu of “gifts” for that special occasion, just register your “event” with Obama so your guests can donate to his campaign.
What’s next: “in lieu of flowers at your funeral, have your mourners donate to me.” ” Husbands, prostitute your wives and send the $$ to me.” FYI my Ipad crashed as I was reading all the comments at the Obama campaign site, 95% thumbs down. Must be a sign from His Majesty.
This one literally “takes the cake” as one of my twit followers says. Photo courtesy of The Blaze.

From Bankrupting America comes a new infographic which shows the parallels between the economic implosion of Greece and signs the U.S. is heading in the same direction:
Mouse over to magnify.
Who says the Tea Party is dead? Not Indiana. In an astounding victory for Conservatives the Tea Party candidate Richard Mourdock trounced Sen. Dick Lugar who has been in office for 36 years. According to the Indiana Secretary of State’s office Mourdock has over 45,000 votes to Lugar’s measly 25,000 so the race was called very early on for Mourdock. Mourdock is presently Indiana’s state treasurer.
Courtesy of @DanaBashCNN below is a picture of Lugar’s campaign HQ: empty. Apparently he has yet to concede.
We told you so, Dick. It was way past time for you to go and it was the “undead” Tea Party who had had enough of your “out of touch” policies and helped Mourdock to victory. Lugar has been labeled as “Obama’s favorite Republican” because of his record of voting with the Democrats. Lugar also didn’t help himself when it came to light he no longer had a residence in Indiana.
Mourdock now faces Rep. Joe Donnelly (D-IN) in the general election. Republicans need 4 senate seats to acquire a majority, let’s hope Mourdock is one of them.

In another man v. fish fight a federal judge, James Redden of Portland Oregon, rejected the federal government’s plans for the 3rd time for the continued operation of hydroelectric dams without jeopardizing salmon. He is citing the Endangered Species Act as the reason, and of course environmentalists are again giddy. Redden wants the dams taken down, and claims “it’s a whole lot easier to take a dam down, than to build one.”
The 83-year old judge showed his bias in an interview with Idaho Public Television:
Even though the judge has taken himself off the case, the interview is to be aired in July for a documentary. U.S. district Judge Michael Simon is now overseeing the case and hopefully he will rule that the dams, which provide electricity for the area, should stay now that salmon populations have increased greatly. This controversy has been spread over the presidencies of Clinton, GW Bush and now Obama, and Judge Redden has rejected plans from all three.
In 2006 Redden ordered water should be diverted from turbines to spill over dams to help young salmon migrate to the ocean. Sound familiar? Eerily like the delta smelt fiasco.
House Natural Resources Chair Rep. Doc Hastings (R-WA) whose district entails part of the Columbia River basin which holds a multitude of dams, reacted this way, excerpted:
“This interview candidly reveals the activist bias of Judge Redden that I and many in the Pacific Northwest have suspected for years. Due to his personal views, this one judge unilaterally dragged and drove costly litigation on for nearly a decade.
He issued unprecedented, questionable and expensive rulings resulting in his literally seizing control of the river system’s operation. He ignored clear and sound science that salmon species are returning in numbers greater than before these dams were built, and forced taxpayers to pay for millions of dollars in higher energy bills and lawyers’ fees. He ordered the waste of tens of millions of dollars by forcing the spilling of water past dams that science reveals has benefited few, if any, fish, and may have actually harmed them. He’s ignored federal science that shows more fish benefit from safe barge transportation, and he’s clouded any semblance of the best science and the law regarding federal salmon protection measures supported by three states, many tribes and other stakeholders.”
So Judge, you cause all this commotion, cause the spending of millions of dollars, make this documentary and then take yourself off the case. Nice.
