President Obama’s spokesman cited the ambiguity of the statement, “there will be blood,” as he avoided condemning the remark made by a Michigan Democrat who opposes the imminent state’s right-to-work legislation. “The president believes in debate that’s civil,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said today. “I haven’t seen those comments and I’m not sure that they mean what some would interpret them to mean. I just haven’t seen them.” Speaking on the state House floor today, Democratic state Rep. Douglas Geiss said “There will be blood” as a result of the bill’s passage.
There is no ambiguity in that statement. If you said it to an individual it would without a doubt put you in jail in some jurisdictions for "terrorist threatening" especially if it was from a white to black situation then you could add "racist" to the formula. It´s pure and simple a statement intended to incite violence.
FTA:“They had knives,” AFP’s Annie Patnaude told The Washington Examiner. “They cut all of the ties (holding the tent up) and then they started slashing the tent itself… I remember them saying, ‘We’re going to destroy these people. Ambiguity? Can someone tell me what is abiguous with the above quote from a person who was there and heard the threat. When someone says "we´re going to destroy these people" along with the statement on the states house floor of "there will be blood". The ambiguity disappears and bone fide threats are spoken. Carney can´t pass this over as a syntacical sort of analogy or ya know like ya know don´t ya. No harm meant there just a jibe...More baloney from the WH.
This is the 4,789 time The Paid Liar has said "I haven´t seen the comments..."
Nobody could be this blind without willfully lying. It must mean that he doesn´t watch the news or read a paper. My dog is better informed. But the real truth is that the media just goes along with the scam and both think that we are stupid.
Both the media and The Paid Liar are disgraceful, low IQ, America haters and are leading us down the trail to our destruction.
And if someone were to state that, "If the Prezdint doesn´t rescind the ACA, there will be blood!", then that would be an OKAY threat according to Carney and the administration and the Secret Service? It THAT the thought that they are trying to convey?

There will be blood on the union´s hands. They´re thugs, just like the president and every Democrat I know. Carney? He´s an emotionless and shameless liar. Just like the president and every Democrat I know. Redundant but true.
There´s a two word phrase to remember if you plan to live or work in the southern third of Michigan´s lower peninsula: Concealed Carry. These union apes are not going away quietly and they will make sure that no new industry opens up ´ shop´ in that area. The dues are going to go up substantially for those that remain in the union because the thugs in the hierarchy will NOT give up their lavish lifestyle.Only then will the dwindling ranks of worker bees revolt. Yes, we´ll evolve into a right to work state but it aint´ gonna be pretty ´downstate´ for a while.
People who support legalizing the 11.5 million illegal immigrants should focus their energies on lobbying Congress and on the 2014 election, President Barack Obama declared in a San Francisco speech Monday. “If in fact I could solve all these problems without passing laws in Congress, then I would do so,” he told a heckler who urged him to stop deporting illegals. Obama said he agreed with the goal of amnesty, but added that “we’re also a nation of laws. … What I’m proposing is the harder path, is using our democratic process to achieve the same goals.” “It won’t be easy as shouting
Since the passage of Obamacare, all fifty state Medicaid agencies have been forced to create a new standalone database that contains nothing besides the contact information of Medicaid applicants who used Healthcare.gov. Some of these new databases mail out voter registration forms automatically. You cannot refuse them. No worthwhile verification occurs before the forms are mailed. Apply for Medicaid and the form will be mailed to you, be you a verifiable citizen or Ayman al-Zawahiri on a computer in Pakistan. Further, these new databases are accessible by groups like Organizing for Action, the reconstituted ACORN, and malevolent figures like Chris Tarango. And no reasonable
A new CNN poll confirms what America´s collective gut has been saying for weeks: Obamacare is sinking its namesake. The numbers are ugly: Just one in four respondents say President Obama is a competent manager of the federal government. For all the hand-wringing about comparing the HealthCare.gov site rollout to Hurricane Katrina, the bottom line is that this president, like his predecessor, has now suffered a signature event that has convinced a majority of Americans that he is unfit for the job. Piling on, the president also scored his lowest marks on honesty and trustworthiness, with 53 percent of those surveyed responding
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is moving to clamp down on the growing political activity of "social welfare" tax-exempt groups, six months after controversy erupted over the IRS scrutiny of conservative groups. The Treasury Department´s proposed rules, released Tuesday, would restrict the ability of those groups to conduct a wide range of activities, from running ads to distributing mailers that target specific candidates to get-out-the-vote drives. Social welfare organizations funded by anonymous donors have become a big force in federal elections, reporting $256.3 million in political spending in 2012, according to a tally by the non-partisan Center for Responsive Politics,
WASHINGTON -- When President Barack Obama summoned congressional leaders for an urgent meeting last month, at the height of a fiscal crisis, Joe Biden wasn´t initially mentioned as a participant. The vice president´s staff quickly followed up with reporters, in case any had been wondering: Biden would be there, too. On another occasion, Biden was at a sandwich shop boasting that Delaware´s subs are superior to those in Chicago and Philadelphia. He let the crowd know he couldn´t linger. "The president is waiting," he announced to the room. "I´m having lunch with him today." The two moments are emblematic of a vice
WASHINGTON -- While the Obama administration is making diplomatic progress on some of the Mideast´s thorniest security issues, problems are piling up in Asia, a region that President Barack Obama had wanted to play a bigger part in American foreign policy. Despite efforts to forge deeper ties with China to make East Asia more stable, Beijing´s declaration of a maritime air defense zone has escalated its territorial dispute with U.S. ally Japan. The U.S. responded by flying B-52 bombers through the zone on a training mission Tuesday without informing Beijing. Analysts say the risk of a military clash between the Asian powers
In one month, Obamacare’s “fumbled” rollout has undone the Democrats’ fiscal fight gains. For the White House, things have been even worse. These sudden reversals of fortune are unlike anything seen arising from US policy in some time, and they may be a long time away, from being reversed. Polling numbers show the shockingly swift change that has overtaken Washington’s political landscape. Using Rasmussen polling data, and looking at three dates from this fall — October 1, the start of the government shutdown; October 17, the reopening of the federal government; and November 17, a month after the government’s reopening —
Detroit’s July bankruptcy filing, prompted in part by its huge worker-retirement debts, has led to calls for a federal bailout of the beleaguered city—and also, by extension, of retirement debt in other fiscally squeezed municipalities. From the New York Times to blogs and union-issued position papers, bailout supporters argue that the citizens and workers of Detroit and other troubled places aren’t to blame for their retirement debts. Even if they were, the arguments go, the damage that insolvency will do to government services for average citizens and to the retirements of government workers demands federal intervention. “The 700,000 remaining residents
USA Today on Monday joined a growing list of news agencies boycotting the use of official White House photography over what it says is an unprecedented lack of access to the president. USA Today Deputy Director of Multimedia Andrew Scott said in a memo to staff the publication will not use “handout photos originating from the White House Press Office, except in very extraordinary circumstances.” USA Today is now one of more than 35 news agencies refusing to use White House photography. Last Thursday, a coalition of major news organizations including the Associated Press, New York Times, Washington Post, ABC, and CNN protested
KABUL — Efforts by the United States and Afghanistan to finalize a long-term security arrangement appeared on the brink of collapse Monday as Afghan President Hamid Karzai made a new set of demands, and the Obama administration said it would be forced to begin planning for a complete withdrawal of U.S. forces at the end of 2014. In a two-hour meeting here, Susan E. Rice, President Obama’s top national security adviser, told Karzai that if he failed to sign the bilateral security agreement by the end of this year, the United States would have “no choice” but to prepare for withdrawal,
WASHINGTON — BY all outward indications, the U.S. Navy Veterans Association was a leader in the charitable community. Founded in 2002 to provide support to Navy veterans in need, the charity recorded astonishing financial success. In its first eight years, it raised around $100 million in charitable contributions, almost all of it through a direct marketing campaign. The organization, headed by Jack L. Nimitz, boasted of 41 state chapters and some 66,000 members. This would be a great story of charitable success, except for the fact that virtually everything about the association turned out to be false: no state chapters,
ATLANTA -- The Rev. Frank Colladay Jr. stood at the end of the gate waiting. On the arriving plane was a passenger whose husband had just died of a heart attack on another flight. Her name was Linda Gilbert. The two had never met before. Colladay´s parish happens to be the world´s busiest airport. His flock consists of people passing through who might need comfort, spiritual advice, or someone to pray with. On this day, a traumatized Gilbert needed even more. Colladay guided her through Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, drove her in his silver Ford Fusion to the medical examiner to see her
Those who wrote the PPACA legislation were much more brilliant than most conservatives have given them credit for. They have hidden a landmine in the way it all works that will ensure an eventual takeover of the entire health care industry by the government. Let me first clarify my professional interest. I have been a vendor of software and services to both insurance companies and providers, and therefore have a deep understanding of the health care industry and what the ACA will do to it. I do not work for any insurance companies or medical providers, nor do I own stock
Cher told her fans on Wednesday that she does not celebrate Thanksgiving. In fact, she appears to deplore the American holiday, calling in the “beginning of a great crime.” Cher said that the American settlers were guilty of taking land from native Americans who had no concept of property ownership and also intentionally infected them with smallpox. “You don’t celebrate the holiday I thought?” a fan asked Cher. “I DON’T,” Cher replied emphatically. She said that, to her, Thanksgiving is a day to see family, eat food together and watch a movie. “Not 2 celebrate the beginning of a GREAT Crime.” When asked
President Obama's weekly remarks: Hi, everybody. On behalf of all the Obamas — Michelle, Malia, Sasha, Bo, and the newest member of our family, Sunny — I want to wish you a happy and healthy Thanksgiving. We’ll be spending today just like many of you — sitting down with family and friends to eat some good food, tell stories, watch a little football and. most importantly, count our blessings. And as Americans, we have so much to be thankful for.
LEE COUNTY - The Lee County Sheriff´s Office has arrested a juvenile in connection with two random attacks reported in Lee County. Traveshia Blanks, of Fort Myers, is charged with two counts of battery on a person 65 years of age or older. On Tuesday around 3:50 p.m., deputies responded to a report of a group of people who randomly attacked an unsuspecting victim (Snip)We talked to students from nearby Cypress Lake High School who didn´t seem to think the teens did anything wrong.

Economics: It seems the official position of Pope Francis is that the free market is a wicked enemy that must be restrained. With all due respect, he´s mistaken. The free market has been a heavenly blessing. Two days before our American Thanksgiving, the Argentinian pontiff, in his first apostolic exhortation, called the free market a "new tyranny." "Some people continue to defend trickle-down theories which assume that economic growth, encouraged by a free market, will inevitably succeed in bringing about greater justice and inclusiveness in the world," he wrote in the Vatican report. Claims of free-market success, he said, have "never been confirmed
President Obama is concerned these days with the "young invincibles," the 20-somethings he needs now to buy into his program, but who probably won´t because they feel (you guessed it) invincible and think they will stay so for quite a long time. But it takes one to know one, as the irony is Obama himself is, or once was, an ultra-invincible, unstoppable and doing what people said couldn´t be done. Could he become world famous on the strength of one speech? Yes, he could. Could he beat Hillary Clinton, a president´s wife and a feminist icon? Yes, he could. Could he
President Barack Obama told a Democratic fundraiser in Beverly Hills Tuesday that he has accomplished "as much, if not more" than any other president."Over the last five years, thanks to the leadership of Nancy (Pelosi) and Harry (Reid) and legislators who are here, we have accomplished as much, if not more, than any time in our history -- saving an economy from a Great Depression; revitalizing an auto industry that is producing better cars and has come roaring back like nobody believed; doubling our exports; drastically reducing our dependence on foreign oil; doubling fuel efficiency standards; doubling our production of
In the wake of the Obamacare fiasco, President Obama’s poll numbers are collapsing in two industrial Midwestern states — the quintessential swing state of Ohio and his home state of Illinois. In Illinois, the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling found Obama’s approval rating falling to just 50–46 positive in a state he carried by 17 points just a year ago. His biggest drops in support came among women voters (only 50 percent positive) and Hispanics (only 51 percent positive). Without his overwhelming support among African-Americans (92 percent), his approval rating would easily be in the low 40s. The liberal website
One day after a new poll showed that only a minority of Americans trust President Barack Obama, the president told an audience that his policies are based on kindness. “Kindness covers all of my political beliefs,” Obama told his audience of wealthy investors, high-tech donors, journalists and fellow Democrats Tuesday, only two months after he slashed at GOP legislators, calling them arsonists, nuclear blackmailers, economic wreckers, hostage-takers, obsessives and irresponsible extremists. “When I think about what I’m fighting for, what gets me up every single day, [kindness] captures it just about as much as anything,” he told his audience at the DreamWorks
Reports of bias incidents at Vassar College that involved hateful messages left on students’ doors were actually elaborate hoaxes — and the perpetrator is none other than the student member of the Bias Incident Response Team, The Daily Caller has learned. This fall semester at the liberal arts college in New York saw a curiously high number of bias incident reports. [snip] The task force had one student member: Genesis Hernandez, who is transgendered and was also a vice president of the Vassar Student Association (VSA), the student government.
Bias: After spending three years promoting ObamaCare lies, the media elite now scramble to get out of the way of a train wreck they helped cause. Their backpedaling would be funny if so many lives weren´t at risk. As the redistributive mechanics of ObamaCare rear their ugly head, the president´s propaganda puppets are suddenly sounding like conservative critics. Take the New York Times. In a fit of candor, it now agrees with what we´ve said all along — "redistribution of wealth lies at the heart of" the Affordable Care Act. The paper reported that "economic justice" was Obama´s real goal in taking over
The day before Thanksgiving 2013 shall hereby be known as “Richard Simmons Makes Hilarious Media Appearances Day.” The fitness guru dropped by the HuffPost Live studios to talk about his efforts in fighting childhood obesity. The conversation became critical of the Obama family when Simmons revealed that he was rejected in his attempt to join the First Lady in her “Let’s Move!” campaign. “I’m just not their set of sheets,” he told host Ricky Camilleri while wearing a set of anatomical muscle leggings and a “SWEAT” tank top. Simmons bristled at Camilleri’s suggestion that perhaps the White House doesn’t want to be
