Van Jones: Romney a
‘D*****’ in Last Debate

Washington Free Beacon, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 10/16/2012 5:38:03 PM

Former White House green jobs czar Van Jones said Mitt Romney acted “kind of like a d*****” during the first presidential debate, in a CNN panel Tuesday. VAN JONES: I think if you’re in a situation — this is kind of basic. You had two guys up there: One was acting kind of like a d*****, and one was acting kind of like a wimp. And between a wimp and a d*****– GLORIA BORGER: Those are strong words, Van. JONES: Those are strong words, but — if that’s the divide, I think people are going to want

Van Jones is a wimp and a sissy. He would never say that to Romney in person. Van Jones is not a good man, and in fact, is more like the stuff I wipe off my shoes after running through dog parks. Oh yes, and I'll say that to his face.

Got it. How many letters are left in our alphabet that are not ''hmm'' words? ''D'' stood for divorce for a while, but now it has devolved into something worse. I'm getting familiar with many of these ''hmm'' words. I think that ''O'' now stands for something in a class by itself, never again to be associated with sexual passion.

Talk about civility! That absurd little boy hasn't the first clue as to how to really insult people. All he does is spout nasty old gutter language that proved he is nothing at all and never will be. The only thing he has going for him is that his momma didn't abort him when she was "that way.' And that proves that he was loved at one time. But he wasted all her efforts to refine him and instill some dignity and integrity into him. No... he be too cool and he show 'em. What a waste of a good mind. Even more basic, what a waste of Oxygen and space on our planet. It will end well, however. When he passes his carcass will at least return to the soil and make it better. The only plus in his whole life.
AND HE EXPECTS US TO VOTE FOR HIS KIND????

Democratic party members can stay in the party when there are so many vile people there with them. Talk about a Tea Party splitting off - the good folks in the Democratic party should split as soon as they can so as not to be associated with the trash they associate with there.

Facts to remember about Van Jones:
* Avowed Communist
* Outed primarily by Glenn Beck
* Favorite of Valerie Jarret
* The impetus for "Cash for Clunkers" ("Hondas for Hoopties" in his book)
* Never really out of influence on the WH
* Someone we'll be happily rid of, maybe even jail, when President Romney cleans house in t=the DOJ.

In Venezuela, As Elsewhere,
Socialism Comes With Shortages
Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: PageTurner- 3/22/2014 11:10:57 AM     Post Reply
Hemisphere: Venezuela´s price and currency controls have wrought what they always wreak: monster shortages. And it stinks, literally, with toilet paper, diapers, soap and deodorant joining drugs on the list. That shutoff from global standards is what prevents willing buyers from acquiring goods from abroad, the source of 80% of Venezuela´s consumer staples. No foreign currency, no purchases. Further down the line, price controls have driven more shortages as costs to produce in an economy with a 56% inflation rate have made it impossible to turn a profit.

The mother of a 3-year-old boy who was saved just as he tumbled out a third-story window in Burbank said she will "never be able to repay" the couple who cushioned his fall with a box spring mattress. Konrad Lightner and his wife, Jennifer, were carrying their box spring mattress out Sunday when they saw the toddler throw his leg over the window sill, his toys tossed to the ground below. "Once we saw that his leg was going over the window, Jenny called police," Konrad Lightner said in an interview with KTLA-TV. After the boy got out, he clung to a telephone wire outside the window, spurring a split-second decision by the

Geopolitics: So are Vladimir Putin´s actions in Ukraine just self-defense, as he claims, or a sign of a new sort of war with the West? Conclusions of a 19th century contemporary of Alexis de Tocqueville suggest the latter. Back in 1839, around the time political thinker de Tocqueville made his long visit to the U.S. and found an exceptional nation, writing about it in his classic "Democracy in America," another curious Frenchman, the Marquis de Custine, made a similar pilgrimage to Russia. Fully prepared to fall in love with autocratic czarism, de Custine was instead repelled by a harsh tyranny combined with

TIJUANA, Mexico – Mexican activist Elvira Arellano turned herself in on Tuesday to U.S. immigration authorities, whom she will ask – for humanitarian reasons – to be allowed to return to the country from which she was deported in 2007. Accompanied by her two children, the human rights defender crossed the border into the United States along with the fourth group of immigrants from the “Bring Them Home” movement. Arellano, TIME magazine’s Person of the Year in 2006, said she was aware that she could go to federal prison, but she said that is a risk that must be taken to send

Staple shortages in Venezuela are exacerbating, as mirrored by restricted sales in many stores across the country. The supply of personal care products fails to meet demand. Only one or two brands of a single item can be found on shelves. Similarly, drugs stocks are running low. In a bid to meet demand, pharmacies have also been limiting the sale of certain drugs to only two items per person. Since April 2012, the Central Bank of Venezuela has been reporting shortage of personal care and home cleaning products, which sales are restricted as well. Shortage stems from the price regulations enforced for more than

CARACAS - Venezuela´s foreign minister lambasted U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday as a "murderer" fomenting unrest that has killed 28 people in the South American OPEC member nation. Since street demonstrations began against President Nicolas Maduro´s socialist government in early February, Venezuelan officials have been accusing Washington of stirring the country´s worst political troubles in a decade. U.S. officials say Venezuela is using them as a scapegoat, inventing accusations to distract from internal economic and political problems. In the sternest words during the crisis from Washington, Kerry said on Thursday the Venezuela government was using a "terror campaign" to

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.” Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said.

Washington - A leading Democratic pollster predicted a "sobering" turnout disadvantage for her party in this year´s midterm elections and called on Democrats to articulate "a bigger economic agenda" this fall. "There is a huge turnout disadvantage and challenge," Democratic pollster Celinda Lake said Tuesday at a breakfast with reporters.

Nearly six in 10 people disapprove of President Obama´s job performance in a new poll by the Associated Press, the highest rating recorded by the newswire. According to the AP-GFK survey released Wednesday, 59 percent disapprove of Obama´s job performance while 41 percent approve. A similar poll released by the news outlet in January found 45 percent approved of him while 53 percent disapproved. Other recent polling has found Obama´s disapproval rating slightly lower, remaining in the low 50s. A CBS News poll Tuesday showed 50 percent disapproval, while Gallup has his disapproval at 52 percent. In the AP poll,

As the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the constitutionality of a contraception coverage mandate Tuesday morning, a federal appeals court heard a separate legal challenge that could have much more sweeping implications for the future of President Obama´s health care law. And if the oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit are any indication, it’s time for the White House to start sweating over a lawsuit that up until now has flown relatively below the radar. At issue in the case are the subsidies that the federal government provides for individuals purchasing insurance through Obamacare. Though the text

On Wednesday, Obama administration officials announced a two week extension in the deadline to enroll in the Affordable Care Act or face a penalty defined as a tax. Asked about this “delay” in the implementation of the ACA on Wednesday, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said that there has been no delay.
