Hah! “Barrycade” Enters Urban Dictionary

 

Barrycades

 

 

 

” Tuesday night Mandy wrote a post, WWII Vets storm Barry-cades, regarding the absurdity of the Obama administration erecting barricades in open spaces for no reason other than to hassle Veterans at the World War II Memorial.

The term Barry-cade, and its acceptable variant Barrycade, became hits on Twitter (here and here).

The term was picked up and spread by Twitchy, and also at Drudge.”

BREITBART NEWS TO LAUNCH ‘THE CONVERSATION’

 

 

 

” On Wednesday of this week, Breitbart News will be launching a new feature/vertical on our website called “The Conversation.” Look for it in the navigation bar.

The Conversation will be a place where our readers can watch an ongoing dialogue amongst a select group of thought leaders that includes Ace of Spades, Iowahawk, David Webb, Javier Manjarres of Shark Tank, DocZero, Nice Deb, Jerome Hudson, Lisa De Pasquale, William A. Jacobson of Legal Insurrection, and Adam Baldwin, along with John Nolte, Ben Shapiro, Larry O’Connor, Sonnie Johnson, Liberty Chick, Jon David Kahn, as well as other writers and contributors from Breitbart News.”

“No Other Involvement With Mrs. Gregory Than That One Event”

Mrs David Gregory & DC AG Irvan Nathan *

Mr & Mrs David Gregory

” Late last Friday afternoon, D.C. Attorney General Irvin Nathan released a letter determining not to prosecute David Gregory “despite the clarity of the violation of this important law.”

After the letter was released, Legal Insurrection discovered that Attorney General Nathan had participated in a mock trial event at the Shakespeare Theatre in Washington, D.C. in April 2011 with Beth Wilkinson, the wife of David Gregory (who also was in attendance).

That raised the question as to whether there was any more extensive professional or social relationship, and whether the Attorney General should have recused himself from Gregory’s criminal investigation.

Former federal prosecutor William G. Otis wrote that that one event was enough to make recusal the better path given the nature of the case and the potential defendant, a position with which Paul Mirengoff agrees. “

Union Protesters Called Hot Dog Vendor “Uncle Tom” And “N*gger” But You Won’t Hear About It In The Mainstream Media

 

 

Union Racism

 

 ” The mainstream media is silent about the union violence in general because it does not fit their narrative, and the racist conduct of the union members is off limits.  “Progressives” are spreading conspiracy theories that this all was staged.

We ask this question time and again — What if the Tea Party had done this?

[FYI, the Stranahan post at Breitbart refers to someone in a Guy Fawkes / Occupy style mask.  I captured that image from a video in my earlier post.  The images also are here and here.] “

One of Professor Jacobson’s readers sent him this poignant sentiment , so subtly conveyed .

 

 

 

This , from northwestern Ohio … Marcy Kaptur’s district .

Assessment — Not sure how to rate this. I wonder how Biden’s constant laughing, smirks, and bombastic language (“bunch of malarky”) played with the viewers.

 

 

Biden also talked over Ryan constantly, and the moderator often cut short Ryan’s answers. Ryan also didn’t get a chance to respond to many of Biden’s over the top comments.”

 

 

 

 

Starting off with Libya. I hope Joe tells her nobody cares about it except Romney and Ryan.

 

If biden laughs one more time i’m going to jump thru the tv and slap him.

We Concur

 

From Professor Jacobson :

 

Here are the tweets I selected during the debate.

I score the first debate as a clear win for Romney. Obama was bumbling, Romney was on target with facts. Even Obama supporters — the semi-honest ones — were tweeting in despair.”

 

Here’s a sample , read them all …

Romney: “trickle down government won’t work.”

Killing the Military Vote

SURVEY: Is Team Obama Trying to Disenfranchise Our Military Heroes Overseas, While Giving INNER-CITY DEADBEATS Mobile Phones For Votes? Is This An IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE?”

 

 

And if that’s not enough for you read this post by Professor Jacobson :

 

Obama may win by diminished military vote in key states

 

 “I highlighted yesterday the precipitous drop in military absentee ballot requests in key battleground state Virginia.

It’s happening in battleground Wisconsin too, as reported by The McIver Institute:

At least 30 Wisconsin municipalities failed to send absentee ballots to military voters before the 45 day deadline, according to former U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs, Anthony Principi, and he’s demanding the Government Accountability Board address the problem immediately.”

“Let Every Vote Count”

Now where have we heard that before ? 

But not if you are willing to put your life on the line in the defense of freedom .

 

Military absentee ballot requests down 92% in key battleground state Virginia

 

  “The government has become quite efficient under Obama at fast walking guns to Mexico and free cell phones to Cleveland, but has ignored its obligation to secure and promote absentee ballot requests from the military.

Via Virginia Watchdog:

A 92 percent drop in absentee-ballot requests by military personnel in Virginia is raising concerns that the Pentagonis failing to carry out a federal voting law.

With only 1,746 military voters in Virginia requesting absentee ballots so far this year — out of 126,251 service members in the state —the Military Voter Protection Project says the system has broken down.

And it’s not just in the Old Dominion. MVPP Executive Director Eric Eversole reports significant declines in absentee-ballot requests by service members across the nation.

Compiling data from Virginia, Florida, North Carolina, Illinois, Ohio, Alaska, Colorado and Nevada, Eversole’s organization found that military families have requested 55,510 absentee ballots so far this year. That’s a sharp decline from the 166,252 sought in those states in 2008.”

  Are our military personnel being systematically deprived of one of the most fundamental rights which they are risking their lives to defend ? 

  Honest citizens would like to know .

Being booed by AARP is a badge of
honor

” I haven’t written much lately about the insurance sales organization doing business as a senior citizens advocacy group using the name AARP.

  You have AARP, among other corporate sell-outs, to thank for Obamacare, as I posted in 2009-2010:

When Will AARP, Consumers Union
and AMA Be Held To Account for
Obamacare? AARP Rides To Obamacare’s Rescue, Again Alphabet Soup of Health Care
Delusions AARP and Consumers Union Should Put Their Money Where Their Pro-Tax Mouths Are
AARP Prepares To Sell Out Seniors
AARP Shills for Kennedy

  So Paul Ryan being booed by an
organization which has caused so much damage to our economy and our health care system should be viewed as a badge of honor.”

Warren-Brown Post-Debate Analysis

  “I will add to this, and embed videos when available, but here’s my quick take.  (Full video here)

Very strong opening for Brown on fake Cherokee issue.  He didn’t handle it the way I would have, but he picked an issue — the release of her employment records — and stuck to it.  (added) In hindsight, focusing on releasing records was brilliant, because Warren has a major problem, she likely made or participated in causing Harvard to make false federal filings as to her Native American status using standard Harvard and EEOC definitions.”

 (Update – Corn responds, 1-2 minutes missing)

“Turns out tape cuts out part of controversial Romney answer

David Corn of Mother Jones released the “complete” audio and video of the secretly recorded Mitt Romney speech at a private fundraiser.

Yet the complete audio and video is not complete.  There is a gap in the recording immediately after Romney’s now famous discussion of the 47% of voters who don’t pay taxes.  The cut in the audio and video comes while Romney is in mid-sentence, so we actually do not have the full audio of what Romney said on the subject”

“Obama’s Great Islamist Delusion has come home to roost”

  ” Well, that didn’t work out so well.
We cast aside Hosni Mubarak on a moment’s notice without taking steps to give non-Islamist parties a timetable to organize an effective
transition; we overthrew Muammar Gaddafi,teaching tyrants the lesson that giving up nuclear ambitions is a deadly mistake, and then promptly departed leaving chaos; and we have isolated Israel among a sea of Islamist radicals as it seeks to stop the Iranian’s march towards
nuclear weapon capability.

  And all the while, our own government places blame on some previously unknown guy for making some previously unknown film which might be real or not, which people who hated us
before the film take as an insult to Islam.

  We’ve even sent out federal law enforcement to locate and report on someone who committed
no crime. “

Obama built it.”
