I’m pretty sure I’m not surprised by anything the hypocrites in Hollywood do anymore. I’m sure this is only the tip of the iceberg. I may have to buy the book to find out more. What I’ve heard Jason Mattera say during different interviews, I guess there’s way more where this came from. Why do the people in Hollywood think they can tell us what’s right anyway? They sure don’t practice what they preach.
Author, Hollywood Hypocrites
When I set out to spend a year investigating the hypocrisies of the Hollywood left, I never imagined I would end up having my camera smashed and being challenged to a fistfight for asking Chris Rock why he calls the tea party racist. But the hatefulness and rage of Rock pales in comparison to what my research uncovered about many of his and Obama’s pals.
We can start with probably the number one race-baiting Obama worshiper, none other than Spike Lee.
After all, it was at Lee’s party at the Sundance Film Festival that Chris Rock became unhinged with me. As I explain in “Hollywood Hypocrites: The Devastating Truth About Obama’s Biggest Backers,” Lee campaigned hard for Obama in 2008 on the grounds that the community organizer would bring racial unity and spark a sense of togetherness heretofore unseen in American history. Proving that the man never met a slavery metaphor he didn’t like, Lee saw Obama’s triumph in the Democrat primary as a chance to move beyond “Massuh Clinton.”

Here we go again.
House oversight committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa said he thinks there are “similarities” between the Operation Fast and Furious gunwalking tactics and the way those who murdered Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent Jaime Zapata obtained the weapons used to kill him.
During Fast and Furious, which was organized by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and overseen by the Department of Justice, the Obama administration sent thousands of weapons to Mexican drug cartels via “straw purchasers” who bought guns in the United States with the intention of illegally trafficking them somewhere else. This tactic is known as “gunwalking.”
Fast and Furious weapons were used to kill Border Patrol agent Brian Terry and at least 300 Mexican civilians.
Zapata was killed with guns that were purchased in Texas by two different traffickers. According to CBS News reports, both of those traffickers were under ATF surveillance without being arrested for a period of time while they were trafficking guns. Both were arrested at a later date.
Texas Republican Sen. John Cornyn has pressed hard for answers on the details of the tactics the ATF apparently used in his state, as has Issa.

Wake up! The Obama Administration and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services have launched a massive effort to mandate that all Americans pay for contraception, sterilization and abortion-causing drugs. Why? What dreaded disease in women’s health does this mandate protect us from? The Pill, the day after pill, the abortion pill and sterilization don’t protect women from AIDS or other sexually transmitted diseases. So what dreaded disease are the Obama Administration and the HHS trying to save us from? Oh yeah! It must be the dreaded disease of pregnancy. But wait, why is this mandate such a big deal? Well, I’ll tell you. It doesn’t matter how many good Catholic women or women of other religions use contraception, the Catholic Church is pro-life in their teachings and principles and shouldn’t have to provide or pay for it. Not for any of their employees working at any Catholic run institution or employees of any religious organization. We shouldn’t have to pay for any of theses services with our tax dollars either. I paid for my own and would never have asked someone else to cover the cost for my choices, and generally speaking, using any of these services are choices, not necessities.
Wake up! This is NOT about women’s health or some obscure war on women. This is about the Federal Government telling protected organizations what they can and can’t do.
Wake up! If they can do this to Catholics and other organizations of conscience today, then who will they boss around tomorrow? This is another in the series of slippery slopes toward the loss of our rights as Americans.
Once again I say, wake up! There was a mandate released last month that will violate our civil liberties and free exercise of religion by forcing every American and every U.S. employer, regardless of religion or conscience, to pay for abortion-causing drugs, like Ella, in health insurance plans.
“The Con” – a video presented by AUL:
Can you believe that two weeks ago, Secretary for the Health and Human Services Department, Kathleen Sebelius, admitted during a Congressional hearing that this Mandate is needed because, “reducing pregnancies will cut health care costs”? Are you kidding me? That’s insane. Contraceptives are available now on the cheap and some free and pregnancies have not gone down at all. Personally, I think these progressives are the racists because they think poor black and Hispanic women can’t get birth control unless it’s free.
Wake up! This mandate, due to take effect this summer, will violate the very principles our nation was founded on – your freedom of religion and conscience! Maybe you don’t think so. Let me give you an example of the administration picking and choosing which freedoms different religions can have.
The Northern Arapaho Tribe in Wyoming filed a federal lawsuit last year contending the refusal to issue permits for killing bald eagles violates tribal members’ religious freedom. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has taken the unusual step of issuing a permit allowing an American Indian tribe to kill two bald eagles for religious purposes. Federal law prohibits the killing of bald eagles, the national bird, in almost all cases. The government keeps eagle feathers and body parts in a federal repository and tribal members can apply for them for use in religious ceremonies. The lawyer for the tribe revealed in a legal filing this week that the federal agency had issued the permit on Friday. The report states that the federal permit will allow the Northern Arapaho to kill up to two bald eagles off the reservation.
Now, I don’t have any problem with Native Americans killing bald eagles for their religious ceremonies. What I do have a problem with is the government picking and choosing which religion is deserving of exceptions to federal laws. It’s okay for the Arapaho Tribe to have an exemption from the law, but not the Catholics or other Christian religions.
Wake up! If the president has the authority to violate our constitutional rights in this way, what else can he do? This time President Obama is targeting Catholics and pro-lifers, but next time he could target a group that you or I belong to.
If this mandate stands, then what limit will be put on the government as far as controlling our lives?
2012 WTF #20 – Hmmm – Is it just me or does this seem suspicious to anyone else? The Justice Department’s civil rights division on Monday declared its opposition to new photo ID requirement for voters in Texas because many Hispanic voters lack state-issued identification (just like they did with S. Carolina’s similar law last year.)
In a letter to Texas officials the Justice Department said Hispanic voters in Texas are more than twice as likely than non-Hispanic voters to lack a driver’s license or personal state-issued photo ID. The department said that even the lowest estimates showed about half of Hispanic registered voters lack such identification.
Uhm, excuse me, OK, so then how do they buy a beer? Maybe they don’t drink! OK, so how do they cash their paychecks then? But Kurt, maybe they use direct deposit! How do they open a banking account then? But Kurt, maybe they don’t have jobs so they don’t need a bank account! OK then how do they get money? Well Kurt, maybe they get state assistance while they’re trying to find a job!
OK, but then that is where this gets really interesting. To apply for Federal Welfare, all applicants are given a list of REQUIRED documents to bring to sign up including: “proof of income, ID, and utility bills or other proof of residency” (see “How to Apply for a Welfare Program” section, http://www.welfareinfo.org/)
SO… you shouldn’t need an ID to prove you are who you say you are when voting in elections, but you damn well better have ID proving you are who you say you are to get government assistance? Where is the outrage! These people need help! They shouldn’t have to prove that they are who they say they are or even that they need help! Just give them the money already! SHEESH!
Our government is sooo ridiculous sometimes it’s almost funny. ALMOST!
Oh and in case you didn’t hear, James O’Keefe, who “screwed” over ACORN, just released a video from Vermont and New Hampshire showing one of his employees going into multiple voting areas, giving a different name each time and being handed the REPUBLICAN primary ballot without ever being asked for ID (note: he went for the Republican to show this problem is NOT a partisan issue, but can be exploited by anyone with the desire to.)

2012 WTF #19 – These people make me sick! A couple in Portland, OR, was awarded almost $3 million in a “wrongful birth” lawsuit after their daughter was born with Down syndrome although a prenatal test didn’t show Down syndrome as a possibility. I know we’ve become such a litigious society, but come on! No test is perfect and to say you would have aborted it if you’d only known is sickening.
And the lawyer, in the same interview, saying don’t misunderstand they love this child, but they would have aborted her if they’d known and they are only suing because it’s too expensive to raise a special needs child and it’s the hospitals fault after all they are in this mess.
Did the hospital make a mistake? Yep, it looks that way. Do they deserve financial help raising the kid (beyond the normal help the government offers for children with special needs)? Probably. But is that an excuse for saying publicly that although they “love” this child they would have preferred to abort it? No, not in my eyes.
I feel sooooo bad for this child. There are sooooo many good homes in this world looking for children that would have happily taken and raised this little girl, but no, the parent decided to keep her and now feel it is too expensive to have her. The saddest part to me is that at 4 this little girl doesn’t get it, but she’s got siblings and they all get to grow up now knowing that their parents would have gladly killed her had they only known!!! Despicable!!!
2012 WTF #18 – Pacific NW Electric Producers Paid NOT to Produce Electricity – Consumers to Pay More to Make Up the Difference
Wind farms in the Pacific Northwest – built with government subsidies and maintained with tax credits for every megawatt produced – are now getting paid to shut down as the federal agency charged with managing the region’s electricity grid says there’s an oversupply of renewable power at certain times of the year. Bonneville Power Administration, a federal agency based in Portland, Ore., shut down the wind farms for nearly 200 hours over 38 days and is offering to compensate wind companies for HALF their lost revenue (appx $50 million a year.)
SO… how will the electricity producers make up the other half of the lost revenue? You guessed it, they will be looking for rate payers to make up the difference – but heck, they require taxpayers to subsidize the production of renewable energy – even though they have to pay for it as a rate payer to get the electricity; now they want rate payers to pay renewable energy companies when they lose money as well.
Looks like they have them coming and going, with the only people “winning” being the electric company who is guaranteed to not lose money and the govt who gets to hand off the requirement to pay half the money owed to the people while still making them pay the full taxes needed to subsidize the entire thing.
Yea, that seems right to me.
2012 WTF #17 – An 11-year old sixth-grader at Shaw Heights Middle School, in Adams County, CO, was handcuffed and taken to a holding facility for disobeying the orders of an assistant principal during lunch and being “argumentative and extremely rude.”
An Adams County Sheriff’s Office incident report says the assistant principal found Yajira walking in the hallway during lunch because the girl claimed she was cold and needed to get a sweater from her locker. The report says the assistant principal was in mid-sentence when Yajira, “turned and walked away saying, ‘I don’t have time for this.'” When intervention efforts with a counselor failed, Yajira was handcuffed and put in the school resource officer’s patrol car and taken to a juvenile holding facility called “The Link.”
The Adams County Sheriff’s Office told 9Wants to Know that handcuffing kids during transport is standard procedure, but refused to discuss this incident because a juvenile was involved and NO CHARGES WERE FILED!
So remember kids if you back-talk a teacher in Adams County CO (which you shouldn’t do, so please don’t no matter where you live) you don’t have to worry about detention or suspension, just the embarrassment that comes with being handcuffed in front of your friends, put in a patrol car and taken to juvenile detention so your parents can come get you – but don’t worry they probably won’t file charges because it doesn’t appear that you actually broke any laws that would allow them to arrest you.
