Dear Readers: I have a ton of news tidbits to share with you today. However, I would like to start off with the one that caught my eye (or more precisely – ear, as I first heard it via Tammy Bruce). It seems Google has been inundated with requests to censor internet search results from government agencies, upset with the information we Tea Party rubes have been spreading.
In the last half of 2011, U.S. agencies asked Google to remove 6,192 individual pieces of content from its search results, blog posts or archives of online videos, according to the report. That’s up 718% compared with the 757 such items that U.S. agencies asked Google to remove in the six months prior.
Meanwhile, Obama’s media minions at MSNBC had to fake-up a video mix in an attempt to make an increasingly confident and presidential-looking Mitt Romney look out-of-touch. Clearly, a sign of panic-filled desperation. Gee, I guess “news reporters” will begin calling Obama’s detractors racists soon.
If you want to see a politician that is the opposite of panic, catch SCOTT WALKER’S GOP RESPONSE TO THE PRESIDENT’S WEEKLY ADDRESS, JUNE 16 2012 (hat-tip, Marathon Pundit). Walker has truly grown in office, and his talk is inspiring and coherent. After Obama’s 54-minute bacchanal of incoherence of last week, it is a real treat.

It seems Obama’s use of Greek columns was prescient, given that he has taken this country on a deficit drunk, reminiscent of what has happened to Greece. Word Warrior has an excellent write-up today: GREECE A CASE OF SPOILED-ROTTEN LIBERALISM. Money quote: Germans, who retire at the age of 67, are understandably resentful of subsidizing a nation where hairdressers can retire at the age of 50; apparently due to the hazardous of that profession! Like spoiled-rotten children, they refuse to grow-up and take responsibility for themselves; instead demanding that mom and dad keep paying their bills far into their adulthood. In America, we see the same syndrome developing. One has only to watch the antics of and support on the left for the Occupy Movement to see this up-close here at home.
My blog-mom-friend, Sitting at the Edge of the Sandbox, deconstructs an Occu-wannabe, who posted quite the nasty gram in her comment section. Well worth a visit, for the awesomeness of her dissection.
Furthermore, it seems Supreme Court Justice Scalia is hinting at a Commerce Clause Nuclear Detonation of Obamacare. I now refer you to the movie: PANIC IN YEAR ZERO.
One last thought: Obama’s “Dream Act” Immigration stunt was an omen of doom, for reasons nicely summarized by Hillary is 44. The money quote is priceless: Everything Obama touches turns to sh*t. Count on it. Whatever very short term publicity benefits, whatever upticks in polls Obama gets from his illegal immigration ploy, it’s going to turn to sh*t. Count on it. When the unemployment rate goes up, Obama’s illegal immigrants will be taking the blame.
Lonely Conservative offers this tune to Team Obama for their campaign: Blame Someone Else. Myself? I am going to suggest: PANIC ATTACK!!!
