What The National Pamphleteers Don't Report:
Hostile Press Attacks Arpaio
July 19, 2012
A very hostile press corps attacked Sheriff Joe Arpaio and especially his lead investigator Mike Zullo over and over again in an unbelievable display of the media’s obstinate refusal to look into questions surrounding Barack Obama’s long form birth certificate. Both men had their credibility attacked and their credentials scrutinized while questions about Obama documents were simply ignored! It is painful and irritating to watch the media’s lack of interest in vetting the man who holds the power of the nuclear football.
America’s 2012 election cycle is a repeat of the 2008 campaign. “That document (LFBC) isn’t real;(a) forged document is being used by Obama;somebody else did it,” the earnest detective told the July 17 press conference. “That’s a falsehood;that’s a forgery,” he repeated. “We want the person who did this brought to justice!” Sheriff Joe then stepped forward and called on the U.S. Congress to appoint a special prosecutor and hold Congressional hearings on this urgent matter. “It’s time for someone else to look into this,” the Sheriff said,signaling his frustration.
When an especially objectionable reporter asked Zullo about two checks-a total of$1,330-he received for publication of the online March 1 press conference,the venom in the media person’s voice seemed [....]
Another Obama Bundler Boondoggle Goes Broke
by John Ransom,
July 20, 2012
Another green company backed by an Obama bundler just bit the dust. After announcing earlier this year that the company would lay off 200 of its 300 employees, solar manufacturer Amonix Inc. closed its operation in North Las Vegas leaving taxpayers in the red by $20 million.
“Just seven months after California-based solar power company Amonix Inc. opened its largest manufacturing plant, in North Las Vegas,” reports the Las Vegas Sun, a liberal paper, last January, “the company’s contractor has laid off nearly two-thirds of its workforce. Flextronics Industrial, the Singapore solar panel manufacturer that partnered with Amonix to staff the new $18 million, 214,000-square-foot plant, laid off about 200 of its 300-plus employees Tuesday.”
Now only 14 months after [....]
Reagan Praised Entrepreneurs into Recovery
by Larry Kudlow,
July 19, 2012
Does anybody remember, back in the depths of the recession of 1981-82, how President Ronald Reagan kept his chin up and exhorted American businesses to work hard and produce an economic recovery? Reagan had a program of tax cuts, limited domestic spending, deregulation, and a strong defense aimed at overturning Soviet Communism. He argued in speech after speech that his domestic plan would produce higher economic growth and lower unemployment, and that prosperity would generate the resources to fund a strong national security. Cynics proliferated. But Reagan stayed with it, praising free enterprise and entrepreneurs. And eventually, sunny skies replaced gloomy clouds. “Morning in America” appeared in 1983-84.
But here’s the key point: When Reagan praised our capitalist system and the businesses inside it, he provided a psychological lift to accompany his fiscal program. That was leadership. Now contrast President Reagan’s performance with President Obama’s recent attack on business. Instead of exhorting entrepreneurship, Obama [....]
Bachmann Hits Back at Critics Regarding Her Letter About Muslim Brotherhood and Its U.S. Tentacles
by Jonathon M. Seidl,
July 19, 2012
Michele Bachmann refuses to back down from her criticism of the Muslim Brotherhood and its tentacles within the United States. The congresswoman from Minnesota joined Glenn Beck on radio Thursday morning and continued to herald the warning about the Brotherhood. She also hit back at her critics, who have panned her for a letter she sent last Friday to the Inspectors General of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.
“After the Fort Hood tragedy, a report was issued that said the real problem in our government is that we are not teaching FBI agents or our military to recognize radical Islam. So that’s what we need to do,” Bachmann told Beck. “We need to teach about it.”
But recent developments — such as [....]
Let’s Be Honest About Outsourcing
by Amy Payne,
July 19, 2012
Both candidates in the presidential race have been accusing the other of “outsourcing.” It’s one of those words that is loaded with negative meaning, implying that the perpetrator is un-American. But does America have an outsourcing problem? What is popularly referred to as “outsourcing” is the practice of offshoring business functions, including building facilities and employing workers in other countries. Liberals often argue that “sending jobs overseas” is harming America’s economy. They are missing two important truths: The reality of jobs in America, and the ways to bring even more jobs to the home front.
Jobs in America
The U.S. actually leads the world in manufacturing. Yes, you read that correctly. We produce 21 percent of global manufactured products, while China comes after at 15 percent. According ot the National Association of Manufacturers, “manufacturing supports an estimated 17 million jobs in the U.S.—about one in six private sector jobs.”
Big manufacturers are building new plants here. BMW is adding 300 new jobs to its South Carolina plant this year, and Airbus recently announced it will employ 1,000 at a new plant in Alabama. (Both South Carolina and Alabama are right-to-work states, meaning that workers aren’t forced to join unions.)
Multinational corporations still employ more Americans. U.S.-based multinational corporations employ 22.9 million Americans—more than twice as many people as [....]
Obama Didn’t Build That
by Ben Crystal,
Personal Liberty Digest
July 19, 2012
President Obama believes the government is behind business success. Pity the poor small businessman.
Up and at ‘em in the predawn hours, seven days a week, desperately balancing family with work, he pilots his fragile dream through the storm-tossed waters of President Barack Obama’s economy. Competitors try to undercut him. The large competitors often succeed. But he perseveres, making up for the higher prices necessitated by his lower purchasing power with outstanding customer service, personal relationships with his clients, specific items which can’t be found at big-box warehouses or some combination of them all.
Between feeding and clothing his family and fostering inventory and cash flow, his debt load is staggering. But he works hard, harder than so many who have foundered on the rocky shoals of ill-advised concepts, poor performance or plain old shoddy offerings. He has help from family—who often work for free—trusted friends, advisers and a couple of valued employees, whom he treats—and thinks of—as family. He does his level best by his customers. He does the same [....]
Obama Eligibility Lawsuit Reaches Supreme Court
July 18, 2012
Of the dozens of lawsuits questioning the constitutional eligibility of Barack Hussein Obama to be President of the United States,one has finally reached the docket of the Supreme Court. Should the Court accept the case for review,it will be the first upon which the justices will issue a substantive ruling—one based on the merits.
On February 3rd,Georgia Administrative Court Judge Michael Malihi ruled that Barack Obama is eligible to appear on the Georgia ballot. It was a case during which Malihi received not one scrap of evidence from Obama or his attorney. Subpoenas from plaintiffs were ignored;Obama’s clear burden of proof was NOT imposed. Plaintiff’s motions for contempt were neither acted upon nor forwarded to higher courts;and U.S. Supreme Court precedent took a back seat to the rambling,non-substantive pronouncement of dicta from an Indiana justice. Yet in his 10 page ruling,Malihi had the monumental gall to claim [....]
Obama’s Fake Fairness Fairy
by John Ransom,
July 18, 2012The Fake Fairness Fairy is on the loose again.
And that smell? That’s not pixie dust.
Obama wants you to know that your next promotion, the car you own, your house, your kids, you don’t deserve any of it. Someone else is mostly responsible for it.
“There is nobody in this country who got rich on their own,” Senate candidate and fake Indian, Elizabeth Warren explained to us months ago. “You built a factory out there - good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory.”
Warren- and Obama- explain that in return for not worrying about “marauding bands” taking everything we have, we should just allow a marauding government to take what they will, while we lay still and Think-of-England. Apparently Warren isn’t familiar with the 2nd Amendment, which has always been a most effective way of preventing marauders, public, private, quasi-governmental and federally governmental, from plundering our private property. Her own state, Massachusetts, provided a great example in 1775 at [....]

Barack Obama's great rhetorical gifts include the ability to make the absurd sound not only plausible, but inspiring and profound. His latest verbal triumph was to say on July 13th, "if you've been successful, you didn't get there on your own." As an example, "Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you've got a business -- you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen." Let's stop and think, even though the whole purpose of much political rhetoric is to keep us from thinking, and stir our emotions instead.
Even if we were to assume, just for the sake of argument, that 90 percent of what a successful person has achieved was due to the government, what follows from that? That politicians will make better decisions than individual citizens, that politicians will spend the wealth of the country better than those who created it? That doesn't follow logically -- and certainly not empirically. Does anyone doubt that most people owe a lot to the parents who raised them? But what follows from that? That they should never become adults who make their own decisions?
The whole point of the collectivist mindset is to [....]
47% Say It's Too Easy To Get Food Stamps
July 19, 2012
Nearly half of Americans now think it's too easy to get food stamps, but a majority agrees that tough economic times are driving the demand for them. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 47% of American Adults believe it is too easy to get food stamps in this country. That number has been trending up from 40% in surveys since December 2010. Eighteen percent (18%) think it is too hard to get food stamps, in line with previous surveys. One-in-four (24%) think the level of eligibility is about right, but another 11% are undecided.
Daily Presidential Tracking Poll
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows President Obama and Mitt Romney each attracting 46% of the vote. Four percent (4%) prefer some other candidate, and four percent (4%) more are undecided.
What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls
Central to the race between President Obama and Mitt Romney is the question of how big a role the government should play in the economy. Voters strongly believe that it’s important for the government to create an environment that encourages economic growth and ensures economic fairness, but growth is seen as the higher priority. Most believe Romney champions growth, while Obama is more focused on fairness.

Sequestration: House tells Obama to show where he’ll cut
The legislation sailed through the House 414-2 on Wednesday.
by Seung Min Kim,
July 18, 2012
The House voted Wednesday to force the Obama administration to detail exactly how it would carry out $1.2 trillion in mandated budget cuts looming next year, the latest shot in a battle over military and domestic spending. The legislation, which sailed through the House 414-2 on Wednesday, is similar to a measure passed in the Senate that calls on the administration to detail the fiscal pain to government agencies.
“All this is is saying, Mr. President, show us your hand, show us your plan,” said Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas). “Let the American people know what the true impact is going to be on our national defense, on our economy, on a number of vital services, because you have the discretion.”
The cuts, called “sequestration” in Washington-speak, are set to hit defense and domestic spending next year because a so-called bipartisan supercommittee could not find at least $1.2 trillion in deficit-cutting measures last November. Lawmakers want [....]
Violence Returns to Pakistan's Major Cities
by Ben West,
July 19, 2012
At dawn July 12, militants raided a prison guard residence in Lahore, Pakistan, leaving nine staff members dead and three more wounded. The Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan quickly claimed responsibility for the attack, saying the guards had mistreated prisoners who were members of the Pakistani militant group. The raid came just three days after militants ambushed an army camp in the district of Gujrat, killing seven soldiers and one police officer who were searching for a missing helicopter pilot. The Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan also claimed that attack.
Over the last two years, Pakistan has had something of a respite from dramatic attacks such as those that plagued the country from 2007 to 2010. During those years, a series of high-profile and highly disruptive attacks against police, army and intelligence targets challenged [....]
Tea Party Targeted by “All the Bolsheviks’ Children” (ABC)
by Selwyn Duke,
July 22, 2012
It wasn’t just that ABC’s Brian Ross was wrong in suggesting that the “Jim Holmes” he found on a Tea Party website was the same man who committed the heinous crime in Aurora, Colorado. It’s that his comment was indicative of stupidity and corruption. If Ross had thought for a moment and possessed a grasp of reality, he would’ve realized that “Jim Holmes” is a common name belonging to many hundreds of men throughout the nation. If he had some integrity and a desire to be even-handed, he would have vetted the information more before airing it—just as he would have if at issue had been an alleged left-wing association.
Just imagine if someone appeared on TV shortly after the Aurora tragedy and stated, not just to provide biographical info but with an ominous implication, “We now know that Holmes attended UC Riverside….” Now, I’ll be the first to say that modern academia does teach insanity; nonetheless, since this school isn’t known to orchestrate terrorist acts, it wouldn’t leap to mind to implicate it in Holmes’s atrocity. The fact is that any given person will have had a number of associations in his life, and few, if any, will bear relevance to a crime he may commit.
So there can be only two reasons why ABC would mention a possible Holmes/Tea Party (TP) association: either its people want to demonize conservatives every chance they get, or they think traditionalist thought constitutes a pathology. It turns out that Effluent Stream Media leftists are deeply involved in doing the former and generally believe the latter. Now, you see, [....]
