“The Marine Corp Manual, which is the bible for all soldiers serving, specifically states that a soldier’s uniform dress code does not allow the carrying of an umbrella and ‘no officer or official shall issue instructions which conflict with, alter, or amend any provision without the approval of the Commandant of the Marine Corps.'”

“Indeed, male Marines are informed never to carry an umbrella from the earliest phases of training.”

On a side note: Sarah Palin praises the President for “finally calling in the Marines” even if it was just to keep him dry!

“glad you finally called in the Marines… shame it was just to hold your umbrella.”


Well, maybe not death panels, exactly, but unless we start allocating health
care resources more prudently — rationing, by its proper name — the exploding
cost of Medicare will swamp the federal budget”

from Sarah Palin’s Facebook:

Apparently President Obama can’t see Egypt and Libya from his house. On the anniversary of the worst terrorist attacks ever perpetrated on America, our embassy in Cairo and our consulate in Benghazi were attacked by violent Islamic mobs. In Cairo, they scaled the walls of our embassy, destroyed our flag, and replaced it with a black Islamic banner. In Benghazi, the armed gunmen set fire to our consulate and killed an American staff member. The Islamic radicals claim that these attacks are in protest to some film criticizing Islam. In response to this, the U.S. embassy in Cairo issued a statement that was so outrageous many of us thought it must be a satire. The embassy actually apologized to the violent mob attacking us, and it even went so far as to chastise those who use free speech to “hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.” (Funny, the current administration has no problem hurting the “religious feelings” of Catholics.)

But where is the president’s statement about this? These countries represent his much touted “Arab Spring.” How’s that Arab Spring working out for us now? Have we received an apology yet from our “friends” in the Muslim Brotherhood for the assault on our embassy?

It’s about time our president stood up for America and condemned these Islamic extremists. I realize there must be a lot on his mind these days – what with our economy’s abysmal jobless numbers and Moody’s new warning about yet another downgrade to our nation’s credit rating due to the current administration’s failure to come up with a credible deficit reduction plan. And, of course, he has a busy schedule – with all those rounds of golf, softball interviews with the “Pimp with the Limp,” and fundraising dinners with his corporate cronies. But our nation’s security should be of utmost importance to our Commander-in-chief. America can’t afford any more “leading from behind” in such a dangerous world. We already know that President Obama likes to “speak softly” to our enemies. If he doesn’t have a “big stick” to carry, maybe it’s time for him to grow one.

Former state solicitor general Ted Cruz appears favored to win the Republican Senate runoff in Texas on Tuesday, which would hand the tea party a significant underdog victory in a massive state.

Tea party support stretching from high-profile figures like Sarah Palin, Rick Santorum and Jim DeMint down to grassroot volunteers helped catapult Cruz to the top slot in Tuesday’s primary race. And he held his lead, despite beginning the election with less name recognition and less money than his wealthy and well-connected opponent Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst.

Matt Mackowiak, a Republican consultant who divides his time between Washington, D.C. and Austin, T.X. is a Cruz supporter and gives “enormous” credit to the tea party for Cruz’s come-from-behind success.

“Look, this is a low turnout primary runoff late in the summer– it’s hot, we’ve never had a primary this late– it’s the most committed folks that are voting,” Mackowiak told Yahoo News, “and in many ways it’s the tea party activists who are not only voting but who are really acting as multipliers.”

Bristol Palin, on her blog, posted an open letter to the President. The letter speaks for itself:

Ever since you called Sandra Fluke after Rush Limbaugh called  her a slut, I figured I might be next. You explained to reporters you called her  because you were thinking of your two daughters, Malia and Sasha. After all, you  didn’t want them to think it was okay for men to treat them that way:

“One of the things I want them to do as they get older is engage  in issues they care about, even ones I may not agree with them on,” you said. “I  want them to be able to speak their mind in a civil and thoughtful way. And I  don’t want them attacked or called horrible names because they’re being good  citizens.”

And I totally agree your kids should be able to speak their  minds and engage the culture. I look forward to seeing what good things Malia  and Sasha end up doing with their lives.

But here’s why I’m a little surprised my phone hasn’t rung. Your  $1,000,000 donor Bill Maher has said reprehensible things about my family. He’s  made fun of my brother because of his Down’s [sic] Syndrome. He’s said  I was “f**-d so hard a baby fell out.” (In a classy move, he did this while his  producers put up the cover of my book, which tells about the forgiveness and  redemption I’ve found in God after my past—very public—mistakes.)

If Maher talked about Malia and Sasha that way, you’d return his  dirty money and the Secret Service would probably have to restrain you. After  all, I’ve always felt you understood my plight more than most because your mom  was a teenager. That’s why you stood up for me when you were campaigning against  Sen. McCain and my mom—you said vicious attacks on me should be off limits.

Yet I wonder if the Presidency has changed you. Now that you’re  in office, it seems you’re only willing to  defend certain women. You’re only willing to take a  moral stand when you know your liberal supporters will stand behind you.


What if you did something radical and wildly unpopular with your  base and took a stand against the denigration of all women … even if they’re just single moms? Even if they’re Republicans?

I’m not expecting your SuperPAC to return the money. You’re  going to need every dime to hang on to your presidency. I’m not even really  expecting a call. But would it be too much to expect a little consistency? After  all, you’re President of all Americans, not just the liberals.

The ball is now squarely in the court of a president who has  demonstrated an abiding fondness for reading heart-felt letters written to him  by his constituents. Will he respond to this letter, or will it somehow  conveniently escape his ken?

from BigGovernment:

At the outset it’s important to note that while the Nevada DMV tried to justify their rejection of a “GOPALIN” plate on the grounds that it was supposedly “vulgar or obscene or expressing superiority of political affiliation,” they had no problem okaying the following plates: ““GOGREEN,” “DMOCRAT,” “AL GORE,” “KERRY,” “EDWARDS,” “DEAN,” “HILLARY” and “RONPAUL”.  (Moreover, Linlor claims that when he applied for a “GOOBAMA” plate, the DMV approved it.)

The head and ultimate decision maker for the Nevada DMV is Bruce Breslow, a Democrat who holds his job at the appointment of Nevada’s Republican Governor, Brian Sandoval. And for reasons unknown (and inexplicable), Gov. Sandoval is apparently siding with Breslow on this issue, if only by the simple act of keeping Breslow as DMV Director when such duplicitous, politically-motivated approvals and denials of personalized plate requests are taking place.

Again, just think about it: “GOPALIN” could not be approved because it was too “political” but “DMOCRAT,” HILLARY,” and “GOOBAMA” were all acceptable.

While some are asking whether Gov. Sandoval is standing by Breslow as a way to “curry favor with the unions representing the DMV and State employees,” the bottom line is that he’s making the wrong stand regardless of his reasons for doing so. And when questioned on the matter, the only answer the governor’s spokesman will give is “no comment.”

Sadly, this case has now moved up to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Which means Gov. Sandoval is determined to continue spending Nevada tax-payer dollars for attorney’s fees and other costs tied to defending the Nevada DMV’s decision. It just seems a bit ridiculous when you think about the fact that this is all the result of trying to prevent a Nevada citizen from putting a “GOPALIN” license plate on his vehicle.


Alright, so its “cheesy”!! But afterall, Greta is from Wisconsin!

It was the biggest non-story story in Washington since Al Gore’s global warming tirades. I’m talking about the release of thousands of emails of former Gov. Sarah Palin last Friday in Juneau, Alaska. The release of emails (printed on paper) had reporters forming lines the lengths of which made the O.J. Simpson trial look like a queue at the local Dairy Queen.

News outlets such as The Washington Post publicly heralded their “read ’em here first” status. Never mind that no reporter had actually spent any time and bothered to read them. The editors just wanted to get the “full coverage” mantra out in order to light up the Google tote board.

That was Friday. By Saturday, a shocking revelation ripped through the nation’s headlines: Palin had a third email account! Oh, the political tremors that were felt then! No lie, folks. That was the headline, if you weren’t following. Surely, there would be something more salacious to uncover, no? I have three email accounts. Does The Washington Post want to put a dozen reporters on the case?

In a related story: Gov. Deval Patrick (D-MA), if asked for his emails, will not supply them. Why? Because in a law that goes back at least to Gov. Mitt Romney, they are not subject to FOIA request. Neither are those of the Massachusetts’ Legislature. Or the Massachusetts Courts. But it’s not like anyone in the media was actively seeking to know what was going on under the gold dome of the Massachusetts State House.
