Man held on threats against prez
Boston Herald, by Andrew Blom

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/2/2014 8:26:10 PM

A Lawrence man accused of threatening President Obama on Twitter was held without bail yesterday on nine gun charges, authorities said. Stephen M. Perrotti, 28, pleaded not guilty at his arraignment in Lawrence District Court to five counts of possession of large capacity firearm, improper storage of a large capacity firearm, possession of a firearm with an FID card, possession of ammunition without an FID card and possession of an assault weapon after a Secret Service investigation of Perrotti’s alleged threats against Obama, the Essex District Attorney’s Office said. “We came to know about this as it was a threat

Prez is just not worth getting yourself in trouble for!

If you want to threaten someone ... find someone worth going to jail over!

Gun owners must be very careful with their speech. And Obama´s skin is the thinnest of any President ever. Most of us don´t worry about never being invited to DC parties, but no one wants to be held without bail.

#6, All Those Weapons??? He had one rifle and 3 scopes along with 3 mags and some ammo. About right for a deer hunt. And the guy has to rot in jail until his Aug 8th arraignment. No Bail. These are gestapo police state tactics akin to thought police. Why the hell does any free thinker still live in this liberal hell hole?

Good grief. The very last thing we need is a threat, or worse, action against the President or any other political figure for that matter. Not only is it a crime [murder] but a crime against the state and a horrific expansion on already troubled times.

History teaches us that this has always been a mistake. Just imagine, for instance, LBJ never becoming President. Biden would make LBJ look competent.

Please just let Obama serve out his term in peace and go on to his sinecure at the UN and eventual home in Beijing.

With one month until Election Day, Republicans´ chances for retaking the Senate and picking up seats in the House are improving. The GOP has been buoyed by positive public polling, while red-state Democrats are still struggling to find distance from President Obama. There are bright spots and even some unexpected new targets on the map for both parties, but the overall national environment seems to have ticked a bit toward Republicans.The GOP needs to win a net of six seats to retake control of the Senate, and Republicans seem better-positioned to do so now than they did through much of

Obama Unwittingly Makes Best
Case Against Political Speech Laws
American Thinker, by Mark J. Fitzgibbons    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 10/4/2014 6:56:52 AM     Post Reply
President Obama famously derided the Supreme Court over the Citizens United decision in a State of the Union address. Obama’s bashing of that First Amendment decision is also central in the scandal involving Internal Revenue Service targeting of Tea Party applicants for tax-exempt status. Lois Lerner followed Obama’s lead to suppress speech. Thursday, in an address at Northwestern University, however, Obama unwittingly undermined a whole regime of regulation of election-related speech. As reported at The Daily Caller: President Barack Obama gave GOP campaigns and right-wing super PAC’s across the nation fodder to

Obama Is Unlikely to Get Credit
for a Falling Unemployment Rate
New York Times, by Megan Thee-Brenan    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 10/4/2014 6:49:13 AM     Post Reply
One would think that Friday’s announcement that the unemployment rate had fallen to its lowest point since Barack Obama took office would be good news for the president. Yet as the unemployment rate has declined, President Obama’s job approval rating has worsened. So it’s not clear how much of an effect modest changes in the economy’s condition will have on his approval ratings. (Snip) The latest unemployment numbers will be the last ones released before the midterm elections, and Mr. Obama is trying to leverage them to his party’s advantage. On Thursday, he spoke at Northwestern University and talked up

The surprising Ebola connection to chocolate

Just when you thought you knew all the consequences of the Ebola pandemic, here’s another one: it could affect the supply of chocolate. Of course that doesn’t rise to the seriousness of illness and death, but it does show how much Ebola affects trade and production. An estimated 70% of the world’s cocoa beans come from the West African countries of Ivory Coast, Ghana, Nigeria and Cameroon. Ivory Coast is the world’s largest producer, exporting 37.8% of the world’s cocoa, according to the Wall Street Journal. (In fact, Ivory Coast just posted a record harvest and the government increased its

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama celebrated 22 years of marriage Friday and the husband-in-chief offered marriage advice to a new bride while at a stop in Princeton, Indiana. "He´ll screw up a bunch," Mr. Obama said. "Eventually we learn, but it takes us a little longer, because we´re not as smart." For her part, the first lady, who Obama said "has been very patient with me," tweeted a photo from their wedding, which took place Oct. 3, 1992, wishing her spouse a happy anniversary. (Tweet)

While small towns and cities throughout the country are gearing up for Halloween, one city in Ohio has a different kind of municipal decor — Planned Parenthood banners. One reader sent The Daily Caller these photos of Planned Parenthood banners attached to lampposts throughout the town of Wooster in northeastern Ohio. “As I drove through the small town,” he told us, “I noticed approximately one dozen Planned Parenthood banners posted prominently along the city streets.” (Photo) TheDC called Wooster’s mayor’s office, who told us that it isn’t responsible for the banners, and directed us to a group called

This Sunday, Chuck Todd will debut his new set for Meet The Press, which NBC claims “incorporates Chuck’s personality” into the decor. Judging from the recent photos released of the set, like the round table used for one-on-one interviews, we’re thinking Todd’s personality can best be described as “POÄNG.” (Photo) This is Todd’s panel desk, which was made by attaching a LACK table to a GLASHOLM: (Photo) This is Todd’s America Shelf, probably inspired by Pinterest’s Ikea Hacks: (Photo) And there is reportedly an “informal interview” credenza, which could look like any of these:

A record 92,584,000 Americans 16 and older did not participate in the labor force in September, as the labor force participation rate dropped to 62.7 percent, a level it has not seen in 36 years, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Friday. Six times in the last twelve months, the participation rate has been as low as 62.8 percent; but September´s 62.7 percent is the lowest since February of 1978. The participation rate is the percentage of the civilian noninstitutional population who participated in the labor force by either having a job or actively seeking one. Those not in the

The Obama administration found itself on defense Friday after former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta criticized the White House for its policies on Iraq, with the State Department and others publicly disputing his claims. Panetta chided the president´s team in his forthcoming memoir, excerpts of which have been published in the media. He alleges the White House didn´t try hard enough to strike a deal with Iraq in 2011 to leave a residual force of U.S. troops behind, in turn opening the door for the region to become a haven for the Islamic State. In newly published excerpts, he also criticized

IRVING — Former President George W. Bush spoke before wounded veterans taking part in his Warrior Open on Thursday, saying the tournament could be characterized in different ways: “One, you can call it the ‘Courageous Open,’ or you can call it ‘There’s No Self-Pity Here Open.”’ “Any way you call it, we thank you for coming to support the men and women who have worn our uniform and the courage they’ve shown,” Bush said before the golfers headed out for the second day of the tournament, held at Las Colinas Country Club in the Dallas suburb of Irving.

The dictionary defines nepotism as, “the practice among those with power or influence of favoring relatives or friends, especially by giving them jobs.” It perhaps should come to no surprise to anyone even remotely aware of the ethical scandals permeating Democrats in the State Senate that a new scandal should emerge surrounding untoward hiring practices in the State Senate, and a cover-up by Senate Leadership. (More on that cover-up in a moment.) First I think it is important to recap that the Senate, as an institution, is clearly at an ethical low point. Former Democratic State Senate Rod Wright finally resigned

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up.

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t. Probably because the scare-mongering itself makes people take it seriously enough to prevent it spreading. But there is something very sinister and frightening about this Ebola outbreak, which has so far infected 7,100 and killed 3,300.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in
