TONIGHT on The Andrea Shea King Show:

Founder of HillBuzz, Kevin DuJan, will again be joining Andrea for what always turns out to be an interesting, informative and entertaining interview. Kevin was brought into the national spotlight this week when Rush Limbaugh used one of HillBuzz' posts on the EIB Network. It was a very provocative and thought provoking post.

Kevin has a lot to say on a variety of topics, so join Andrea tonight at 9 PM ET for Kevin DuJan of HillBuzz. You'll be glad you did. See you in the chat room!

Posted by Ann Barnhardt August 18, AD 2011:

Those would be two discrete topics.

1. The Obama regime is now in full-blown political vendetta mode and is "probing" Standard & Poor's in retaliation for their downgrade. Two things:

A.) None of these people in the ratings houses are angels - don't get me wrong - but the financial regulatory bureaucracies in this country are manned by gross incompetents and function as de facto extra-legal enforcement mobs. The Brown Shirts are already here and have been here for quite some time. They are in these financial regulatory bureaucracies. They "punish" whoever the regime says needs to be punished and they steer and force blacklisted firms into financial non-viability and then facilitate the acquisition of whatever remains by the regime-friendly firms for pennies on the dollar. At the same time, massive ponzi schemes, blatant frauds and obvious criminal activities are overlooked so long as political donations go to the "right people". I have stories. Dear God, do I have stories . . . .

B.) Moody's and Fitch need to back S&P's play - and should have done so right from the beginning - and downgrade the U.S. too. Goodness knows a downgrade is more than warranted. These ratings outfits need to stick together. But, I have no idea if someone high-up in Moody's or Fitch is in bed with the Obama regime. It is all so corrupt and incestuous that it would be naive to assume that they are honest. BUT, they need to wise up and realize that Marxists have no sense of loyalty and will turn on them in a heartbeat when it suits their cause. With Marxists, it is kill or be killed. Just ask the 61 million Soviets or the 85 million Chinese that were murdered by their Marxist governments.

C.) Finally, one more time because I get the very strong sense that most people in this country simply aren't comprehending the financial situation: NO FINANCIAL INSTRUMENT that is based on "paper", "contracts", "notes" or "promises" is safe. Zeros and ones on computer servers are NON-EXISTENT ENTITIES that, up until this point, have been deemed by society to have value and meaning based upon the full faith and credit of the United States government and the financial system as a whole. We now know that the United States Government is completely DEVOID of faith OR credit, is totally insolvent, and is populated by the scum of the known universe. The same pretty much goes for the financial system. Moving your stock holdings from one portfolio profile to another, or from stocks to bonds, or even from stocks to cash is not really accomplishing the objective, which is to become as far removed from promise-based instruments as possible. If and when the big poop hits the big fan, the only things that will have any value whatsoever are things that you can physically stand in from of with a long gun and defend. And I'm dead serious. You can't physically defend zeroes and ones on a computer server. You can't even defend those pieces of paper that say "Federal Reserve Note" across the top, because the government can render those worthless without having to physically confiscate them simply by printing trillions more of them . . . which they are getting ready to do any day now. Long guns (Not handguns, people. You don't fight wars with pistols.), ammunition, freeze-dried food or MREs, water, water, water, fuel, medications, more guns, more ammo, more water, barter currencies (silver coinage), wealth-storing currencies (gold), more guns and more ammo - these things you can physically defend. Therefore, they are REAL ASSETS.


2.) I tweeted an article earlier this week on the American Psychiatric Association moving to normalize pedophilia in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). Guys, this isn't some fringe outfit. The APA and the DSM is THE benchmark psychiatric text used in legal proceedings and the drafting and contesting of legislation. The APA normalized homosexuality in 1973, and instantaneously our societal and civilizational collapse commenced. But, I think everyone is missing a key point and motivation in all of this pedophilia stuff. Sure, pedophiles like Obama's "Safe-Schools Czar" Kevin Jennings want to be able to rape boys with legal protection.

(Google these terms: "Kevin Jennings Fistgate" and read up on how this guy organized pedophilia seminars for elementary school students teaching them how to cruise public restrooms and engage in the horrific evil of "fisting". exposed all of this in 2009 and NOTHING was ever said anywhere in the media, including Fox News. That was all the proof I needed that Fox News was in the tank just as much as all of the other outfits. Obama literally appointed a known pedophile to be "Safe-Schools Czar" and no one said a damn word.)

What this pedophilia legalization really has to do with is SHARIA LAW. In islam, men are allowed to have sex with children and infants. It is fully legally sanctioned not only by imams issuing doctrinal fatwas, but also by the hadiths and the koran itself. Pedophilia is intrinsic to islam. There are multiple citations in the koran ratifying and glorifying sex with children of both sexes. I covered those in my koran-burning YouTube video. The reason the APA is moving to "normalize" pedophilia, or as they call it, "attraction to minors", is so that the deck will be cleared for muslims and Sharia, and there will be no way to prosecute muslims for child rape.

Hillary Clinton is pushing the U.N. law that would make "defamation of religion" a crime. Of course by "religion" they are referring to islam and islam alone - even though islam is NOT a religion. But that mis-categorization is all part of the plan. Arresting and trying muslims for child rape would be in conflict with this U.N. muslim-supremacy act, thus pedophilia must be legalized and sanctioned in the U.S. statutes and in stare decisis (legal precedent). The fact of the matter is this: if my government legally sanctions pedophilia, then that government is not only dead to me, but it is my enemy. That is the ONLY moral response to such an act of evil. Get your heads around this, people. There is no way a moral human being can rationalize or justify allegiance to a government that sanctions the rape of children and infants. Lock and load.

Yes, and these are our "friends." We do business with these people. We protect them.

So this Indonesian lady travels to Saudi Arabia to work as a domestic. Her employer abuses her and won't let her return to her homeland. She kills her employer. Sounds reasonable. But to the Saudis, not so much. They put this grandmother on the public square, then they take a nice, shiny sword and chop her head off. Our "friends." Oh, authorities in Jakarta weren't notified of this action until after it was carried out, so the Saudi regime did apologize for that.

Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit has the story and gruesome video (Warning).

Now back to the taxpayer funded Magical Marxist Bus Tour...

This morning I tuned to MSNBC to see their debate coverage. I wasn't surprised at their coverage, it was typical MSNBC. However, I was surprised at how Morning Joe decided to close out this morning's program. Wow. Just Wow. I don't think Glenn Beck will be following Morning Joe's example.

Big labor, the democrat party and the entire main stream media apparatus was boots on the ground in the Wisconsin recall effort. On our side we had... well... hang on... oh, we had the Tea Party, and more specifically, The Tea Party Express and all the people who contributed to making the wheels go 'round. That's about it. And who came out the winner last night? The people of Wisconsin, that's who.

The progressive movement left no stone unturned in trying to unseat at least three republicans in yesterday's special election. They had throngs of "useful idiots" running about with their not-so-homemade-signs for background shots on MSNBC's The ED Show. Poor Ed, he tried his progressive best to keep the audience in a positive and hopeful mood, but in the end they had to be given the bad news: that the people of Wisconsin had spoken, the recall effort had failed. So sorry, Ed, Rachael, et al. So sorry.

And a special, heartfelt "I'm so sorry" goes out to MSNBC'S Al Sharpton who yesterday played a clip of Andrea Shea King speaking at a TPX tour stop, announcing to the crowd that the S & P downgrade was being dubbed "The Tea Party downgrade." You know you've arrived when Al Sharpton plays a clip of you on his ridiculous show.

Hey, Al, Andrea's doin' The Happy Dance!!

BOCKSCAR, LITTLE BOY, AND NAGASAKI + 66 YEARS (reposted from last year)

NAGASAKI--before and after.

If not for a couple last minute changes, I would be writing about a B-29 Superfortress named The Great Artiste and the city of Kokura, Japan. Instead, it's the B-29 Bockscar and the city of Nagasaki that we remember as the site of the second wartime nuclear detonation, effectively ending WWII.

Few remember or think about Bockscar and its crew. After all, it's just the one mission that ended WWII. You will see scant postings about it on the internet. MSM and cable outlets, virtually zero mention. Of course any coverage in the MSM will depend on whether the White House issues a statement of apology.

This is a proud day in the history of the United States of America. Read about the events of this day. Post about it. But never apologize. (link has news report of ceremony held Monday in Nagasaki. No U.S. reps attended due to "schedule conflicts.")

DAY FOUR of TPX Wisconsin is the final day of touring, taking the crew to two rallies. First stop is Rhinelander at noon, then off to De Pere for a 5:30 rally. And next thing you know, it'll be Tuesday morning and time for Wisconsin to decide who'll be running their state in the future--elected reps or the unions.

Yesterday's touring left the TPX crew exhausted--3 rally stops--but they got some good home cookin' in them last night, a good night's sleep and as tour embed Andrea Shea King reports, this morning they're pumped up. Darla Dewald of Patriot Action Network penned a little something that got the crew's attention.

And Chicago's John Ruberry of Marathon Pundit reports on visits to yesterday's rallies by Rep Ribble and WI state Sen Olson. Thanks for the coverage, John. And of course all kinds of coverage and cross-posting can be found at Terresa Monroe-Hamilton's NoisyRoom. Be sure to see this vid at NoisyRoom where you can meet the TPX crew while it's traveling the Wisconson highways.

Ok, here we go--for continuous updates of the rallies, just hit this link. Or follow down below.

Tour embed Andrea Shea King is captured on video at a Sunday rally:

*RHINELANDER rally: Andrea reports the crew is on board the bus and cruising for Rhinelander. Should be there any minute for the noon rally. Rhinelander rally underway...

Rally at Rhinelander has concluded. Andrea reports that the crowd was very responsive and engaged. Kay Rivoli was overcome with emotion while singing Freedom's Not Free, according to Andrea... "she just told me that everytime she gets to the part about the planes being shot down, she thinks of that helo with our SEALS on board."

Rhinelander had 200 in attendance and now the TPX crew is on the road for a two-and-a-half hour drive to the next and final rally at De Pere. Below, The Rivoli Revue performing Freedom's Not Free:

The Rivoli Revue in Rhinelander:

**DE PERE rally: Andrea reporting in that the bus has arrived, crews setting up. Before the rally begins, check out some of Andrea's thoughts about the Rhinelander rally... Now a CNN crew is there and wanting to do some interviewing. MSNBC just announced on the Sharpton Show that The Ed Show will be broadcast live from Wisconsin tonight and tomorrow night at 10pm et, so I expect they'll be giving the TPX a little coverage, albeit negative.

The De Pere rally has ended, and as usual The Rivoli Revue brought tears to the audience's eyes. As the crew tears down, Wm Owens is doing interviews nearby the bus. Soon the TPX crew will be on the road, headed to an undisclosed location for the evening, then off to the airport in the morning for the trip back home. I'll have more details either here or link you over to Andrea's site--The Radio Patriot. It was the final day, the final rally here in Wisconsin... now it's up to the voters to decide on Tuesday.

Andrea Shea King has a couple posts for you here and here.

DAY THREE brings the TPX Wisconsin tour to three rally locations: 11am in Fond du Lac; 2:30 in New London; and closing out the day at 6pm in Merrill.

Yesterday the union put pressure on a business located at the rally in Kenosha, but that didn't stop TPX's rally from being a success. Marathon Pundit reports on it. The left feels the pressure building in this election battle and they're prepared to do whatever it takes to win. Disruptive actions by the unions only validates the goals of the Tea Party Express. We're on the side of right and they know it.. and they're afraid.

Tour embed Andrea Shea King will continue reporting in as events unfold today. After yesterday's rallies concluded and everyone had some dinner, Andrea got to thinking about something that was missing from these rallies. Something that was so obvious, we didn't notice at first. She put her thoughts to paper at her site--The Radio Patriot.

THANKS A MILLION TO: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton at NoisyRoom Blog; Trevor Loudon at New Zeal; Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit; I Own The World's BigFurHat; Michelle Malkin. And, John Ruberry at Marathon Pundit. Arlen Williams, If I left your site off this list, I am sorry. There's so many of you and we thank each and every one of you for your help.

UPDATES for today's rallies will fall in below:

*FOND DU LAC rally--Andrea reports that despite threatening weather, it held and the crowd showed up. The rally is ongoing and there's nothing of note happening (union protests, etc). The numerous speakers are hitting the stage--The Rivoli Revue is doing their part to entertain the crowds. More later... 1125AM PT--Andrea just called in--rally has ended, all went very well. They met one WWII vet who served with Patton somewhere around Palermo. The crowds were fantastic, went off without a hitch. Now the crews are back aboard the bus, traveling to the next stop in New London. Pictured below--Fond du Lac rally:

**NEW LONDON rally: Andrea reports TPX has arrived early. So they're taking a little lunch break--Pizza time!! Ok, word on the street is the New London rally has ended--Rivoli Revue ended with a tribute to our troops. On twitter, I noted this interesting tweet: Tabitha Hale

***MERRILL rally: About 100 are gathered under a pavilion at the Merrill rally. Amy Kremer is speaking now and The Rivoli Revue is preparing to take the stage for the closing song--Freedom Isn't Free. The whole crew is exhausted--it's been a very long day, 3 rallies and I'm thinking their beds are calling to them about now... but first, how about some dinner? Andrea's now giving me the real story on just how tired everyone is. Seems someone fell off the stage... something to do with a poor choice of shoes and being tired--no injuries.

Ok, been a long day and the Merrill rally is wrapping up, crew headed back to bus--bus driver--Terry Bear (Real name--swear) says he's not tired and will be just fine.

Night all.

TEA PARTY EXPRESS WISCONSIN: "KENOSHA, MILWAUKEE" EDITION--continuing rally updates to follow as they happen--UPDATE!!!!

**BREAKING: KENOSHA RALLY LOCATION CHANGE--Lincoln Park, 6900 18th Ave. Kenosha, WI--2:30 pm

This is day two of this short four day TPX touring event. Crew members had an 8 am call, organized the day's events then boarded the motor coaches, which are now headed to Kenosha for 2:30 pm rally, then it's on to Milwaukee for a 5:30 pm rally. They are well rested and ready to return to the battlefields of Wisconsin.

READER NOTE: I will post these early morning updates with some info from last night's activities as a base info platform, then as tour embed Andrea Shea King reports in from the rally sites, I will update that info at the bottom. So check back as the day progresses.

Andrea has some thoughts on yesterday at her site--The Radio Patriot. Included is a slideshow. Reports coming into this site from yesterday can be found there as well.

WISCONSIN VOTERS--consider the following:

*Gov. Scott Walker faced a $3 Billion shortfall--after making budget decisions, together the republicans and Gov were able to arrive at a balanced budget. Before Gov Walker took office, Wisconsin had lost 150, 000 jobs, placing Wisconsin as one of the worst in the nation.

*For the short time Gov Walker has been in office, he's created 40, 000 jobs (private sector), putting Wisconsin up as one of the best in job creation. And Walker's plan is still working as Wisconsin is creating new jobs each day--9,000 in June alone!

*Take note of this: Push back by union organizers has nothing at all to do with budgetary decisions on the part of the Gov and republicans. If it did, logic would dictate that the unions would be foursquare behind Gov Walker's decisions as his policies are working and so too are the citizens of Wisconsin. Wisconsin voters can safely conclude that all union action against Gov Walker and the republicans has more to do with union power and influence and not the future employment prospects of the people of Wisconsin. Think about this before going to the polls Tuesday.

The TPX Wisconsin Tour is going according to schedule but it's proven to be a tough slog at times, with some incidents occurring that will be reported on at a later date. For now the focus is on meeting the voters at the rally stops and bringing home a win on Tuesday for Wisconsin.

THANK YOU to those bloggers who answered yesterday's call for much needed coverage: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton at NoisyRoom Blog; Trevor Loudon at New Zeal; Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit; I Own The World's BigFurHat; Michelle Malkin. And, John Ruberry at Marathon Pundit. We could use your help again today.

Kenosha and Milwaukee rallies will be updated below--stay tuned:

*UPDATE Kenosha:

**The Radio Patriot has posted an update about union troubles on the way to Kenosha.

***Tour Embed Andrea Shea King reports that the Kenosha rally has concluded. And even though the venue had to be changed at the last minute due to union pressure--link above--Andrea reports the crowd was much larger than expected, upwards of 400. A very welcoming crowd, patriotism on full display. About a half dozen protesters were in attendance but didn't cause any trouble. Our TPX crew is on the road for this evening's 5:30 rally in Milwaukee. Stay tuned...


*UPDATE Milwaukee via Joe Wierzbicki:

Hello everyone we've just finished up the Tea Party rallies in Kenosha, Wisconsin and the suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisconsin and I've included photographs of the event below.

I also am pleased to pass along reports on these events from some of our Coalition Partners in this effort.

Day one of TPX Wisconsin begins with a noon rally in Hudson and then on to La Crosse at 5:30 PM.  Tour embed Andrea Shea King will report in as events unfold.  I will update this post with her reports, or you can check her site at The Radio Patriot. Terresa Monroe-Hamilton's NoisyRoom Blog will provide cross-posting of the TPX tour as well.

Yesterday was travel day for the TPX crew--hectic, of course--but after everyone was safely situated on the ground in Wisconsin, a nice dinner was had by all.  Reports from the dinner table indicate Italian faire, served home style with lots of conversation revolving around national politics as well as the immediate situation in Wisconsin.  I can tell you this: there's lots of work to be done by TPX in Wisconsin.  The left's union organizers are well funded and organized, working door to door to get the vote out for the recall next Tuesday.

When Amy Kremer arrived to dinner, talk of her interview with Greta began.  It was a good segment for Amy and TPX, even though Greta attempted to throw Amy off her game with a final surprise question.  Amy handled it just fine and stood solid with her answer.

 By all accounts it was a great dinner, but it wasn't all play.  Preparation for the upcoming rallies had to be discussed, speech themes had to be nailed down and organized as well.  Andrea knows the message she wants to communicate to Wisconsin voters and as in past TPX tours, she will deliver with flying colors. She's not afraid of public speaking--in fact, the bigger the crowd, the better.  All the TPX tour members have in common the ability to go before large crowds and get their points across in a very limited amount of time.  It's a rare and valuable talent.

Ok, that's about it for now.  When things begin to happen in Hudson and La Crosse, I will update this post, so check back throughout the day.  Below, Andrea Shea King:

UPDATE from Hudson's rally:
TPX just arrived and the rally has just gotten underway.  Protesters are there with signs with the goal of disrupting the rally.  Looking for good TV coverage.  Below are a couple pics just sent by tour embed Andrea Shea King.

More from the Hudson rally via TPX press release:

Large crowd of conservatives rally to defend Sen. Harsdorf in Hudson

HUDSON, WI - The Tea Party Express kicked off their Wisconsin tour today with a large crowd of enthusiastic supporters who were treated to conservative singers, speakers, and entertainers who defended Sen. Harsdorf and advocated for fiscal responsibility.

Although a sizable group of protesters chanted insults and attempted to disrupt the event, they were quickly drowned out by the music of the Rivoli Revue, who kicked off the energetic rally with the Star Spangled Banner.

The "Restoring Common Sense" pre-election tour continues across the state to visit a total of nine cities. A large coalition has come together to support this effort, with national groups including Tea Party Nation, FreedomWorks, 60 Plus, Patriot Action Network, Grassfire Nation, American Grassroots Coalition, and the Campaign to Defeat Barack Obama contributing to the effort.The full tour schedule is posted at

For more information or to schedule an interview, please contact Levi Russell at 509-979-6615 or

Tour embed Andrea Shea King reports that the rally was well attended, with just a handful of protesters.  The rally went off without a hitch.  All speakers and entertainers were well received.  Now it's on to Kenosha for a 2:30 PM rally Saturday.

Hi everyone - I have a very important update for you on the RECALL fight in Wisconsin.  New polling is coming out in Wisconsin and the poll numbers we've obtained show that out of the 6 RECALL elections that take place next Tuesday, Republicans are ahead in 3 races, but also trailing in 3 races.

The problem is that if Republicans lose just 3 of these RECALL elections then Democrats take control of the State Senate and will then be able to completely block Gov. Scott Walker's agenda and all of his legislation.So we need to pull ahead in at least 1 more of these campaigns.

We are placing another round of TV and online ads for this campaign effort and we need your help.  We need to raise as much as we can by Friday, August 5th at 6:30 PM so we can know how much we can spend on this ad blitz.  In short, we need everyone's help ASAP!

You can contribute any amount from as little as $5 to the maximum allowed contribution of $5,000.   TV ads are running at the rate of about $125 - $500 per spot depending on the time of day in the Green Bay and Milwaukee markets (two of the most important in the state).  The TV ad rates can run as high as $5,000 for ads to run during certain shows in Prime Time, but we have not yet bought any of these most expensive ads. 

In other parts of  the states ads average anywhere from $50 per spot to $200 per spot. 
So if you can afford to make a contribution of $100 you can have the pleasure of knowing your contribution will help pay for 1-2 TV ads in various parts of Wisconsin ahead of Tuesday's critical election.

To help us make a major impact with this ad blitz we will not only need the support of thousands of patriots from across America, but we'll also need some of our most generous supporters to make a more sizable contribution of $500 or more.  I hope you can be one of those people who can afford to make such a contribution.
If you prefer you can also mail in a contribution to our headquarters:

Kevin Jackson of The Black Sphere has penned a little piece over at the American Thinker. In it, Kevin highlights some of Obama's accomplishments since being placed as POTUS.  Kevin's a fair guy, no one would argue with that, and his piece points out just how fair he can be.  Below is a snip where Kevin gives kudos to Obama for going above and beyond in bolstering some of our most important industries.  Oh, and by the way, Kevin gives us the skinny on the really big news of the day: It's Obama's 50th birthday.  Just reportin' what I read.

"Be thee of light heart and rejoice in the spirit of "hope and change," for the gun and ammunition industry is booming, as are any industries related to "survival," e.g. water purification, bio-diesel generators, dehydrated foods, and so on.  Kudos to Obama for giving Americans so much hope, that many of us are planning our survival for when the dollar collapses and anarchy is the order of the day."

"Be sure to tune into On The Record with Great Van Susteren tonight on Fox News Channel.  Our Tea Party Express Chairman, Amy Kremer, will be a guest and talk about the upcoming RECALL campaigns in Wisconsin and the tea party movement's effort to fight back."  10 pm et FNC.

For the crew of the Tea Party Express Wisconsin Pre-Election Tour, it's travel day.  TPX crew members are flying in from all corners of the nation to join in solidarity with the voters of Wisconsin. By this evening, the entire crew should be assembled and ready to organize for the first rally on Friday.  

Veteran TPX embed, Andrea Shea King, packed her bags this morning and headed to Orlando International airport.  Andrea will be meeting up with other tour members as their flights begin to descend into Wisconsin. 

At her blog--The Radio Patriot--Andrea fills in the blanks on what's happening in Wisconsin, who the players are and why we're needed on the ground to help support the embattled Wisconsin legislators.  It's a battle that will have far reaching effects on all states, and the outcome will depend on all of us offering a helping hand. 

There are many ways you can help in this effort.  Money, of course, is always needed in a fight like this one.  Your contributions are the life's blood of any political effort of this magnitude, and the Tea Party Express is not exempt from this economic reality.  So please consider a contribution today.  It'll be one of the best investments you could ever make--the U.S.A.  Remember the Nov '10 elections?  Well, imagine what we can do in Wisconsin and in the 2012 elections.  With your help, anything is possible.  Stay in the fight!

You know it's a bad day when the ChiComs and Russians share the same conclusions pertaining to the failed attempts by congress to at least slow the economic destruction of America.  I'm not so naive to think the ChiComs and Russians aren't playing against us and using this debt crisis as an opportunity to slam us in the world-wide press, but the truth of the matter is, they are correct.  Congress failed in all respects, never coming close to addressing the problems forced upon the American taxpayers. 

The failure in congress wasn't because they didn't know how to approach the problem, they simply didn't want hometown politics to take a bite out of their collective asses come election time (business as usual.)  The will of the American people has again been ignored--few, if any, will get a pass this time around.  
The debt vote has been analyzed seven ways to Sunday, ranging from a "good start" to "absolute failure of leadership" to "disaster."  I agree with the latter two.  This was no time to take half a loaf, especially knowing we held all the cards at the table.  It simply took a spine and a simple understanding of the sheer magnitude of the economic catastrophe facing us.

Below is a quote from a Bloomberg article: 

"China, the largest foreign investor in U.S. government securities, joined Russia in criticizing American policy makers for failing to ensure borrowing is reined in after a stopgap deal to raise the nation’s debt limit.

"People’s Bank of China Governor Zhou Xiaochuan said China’s central bank will monitor U.S. efforts to tackle its debt, and state-run Xinhua News Agency blasted what it called the “madcap” brinksmanship of American lawmakers. Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said two days ago that the U.S. is in a way “leeching on the world economy.”

"You Call This Winning?"--Ann Barnhardt

As Ann Barnhardt is known to do, she says what's on her mind. The war over Washington spending, the Tea Party reps in congress and Obama are on her mind today. Here's a snip from her American Thinker column, We The Stupid:

"I stand here in abject stupefaction. The so-called "right" or "Tea Party" in this republic is being so thoroughly rolled and defeated that I am struggling to come up with an adequate violent submission metaphor that does not involve prison rape . . . and they honesty think that they're "winning." Really? You call this winning?"
