File this one under having the correct priorities in life.
There was a news story out on Friday that Republican Presidential primary hopeful Rick Santorum had left Florida and gone home to Pennsylvania. Many speculated that maybe Santorum was getting out of the race. However, the story is much more important than any political election. It is now being reported that Rick Santorum’s youngest daughter Bella was hospitalized. Santorum had canceled all of his political events to be with his family and his daughter.
Rick Santorum’s 3-year old daughter has been hospitalized in Philadelphia, his campaign said Saturday.
“Rick and his wife Karen are admitting their daughter Bella to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia this evening,” Santorum spokesman Hogan Gidley said in a statement.
Isabella Santorum, one of the presidential candidate’s seven children, has a genetic disorder known as Trisomy 18 that causes people to be born with an extra copy of the 18th chromosome. The disorder causes developmental abnormalities, and half of infants born with the condition do not survive for more than a week after birth, according to the National Institutes of Health.
It was not initially stated why she was hospitalized; however, as reported at ABC News, Bella was admitted to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, PA with pneumonia.
The reason Bella Santorum was admitted to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Saturday night is because she has pneumonia in both of her lungs, a campaign aide told ABC News.
The 3-year-old, who has the serious genetic disorder Trisomy 18, is not on a ventilator, though, which is a very good sign.
Please all say a prayer for the Santorum’s and their precious three year old daughter Bella.
Please say a prayer for the Santorum family and little Bella. Let me also say, KUDOS to Rick Santorum for having the proper priorities. No political office is more important than the health of a child. None. Get well soon Bella!!!
BTW Newt, forget Santorum dropping out, maybe you should! Stop worrying about others and worry about yourself. You are getting trounced in Florida and it has nothing to do but anyone but yourself.
Here is one for Barack Obama’s class warfare campaign ads …
If nominated and then elected President, Mitt Romney would be among one of the richest Presidents ever. I can see it now, Obama referring to Romney as the 1% President and playing the class warfare game. What else does Obama have, he certainly cannot run on his record.
GW beats me by this much
However, guess who is the richest President ever elected, adjusted for inflation … that would be the Father of our country, George Washington of course.
Just how rich is Mitt Romney? Add up the wealth of the last eight presidents, from Richard Nixon to Barack Obama. Then double that number. Now you’re in Romney territory.
He would be among the richest presidents in American history if elected — probably in the top four.
Of course Obama and other Leftists might have a bit of an issue using this type of class warfare seeing that former Democrat President JFK was worth more than Romney. I wonder if George Washington had to provide his tax returns back in 1788? Before the Leftists wingbats go nuts with comments, obviously there were no tax returns.
Ask yourself what is worse … having one of the richest Presidents ever elected during a terrible economy or one that just promotes class warfare and has had 3.5 years to accomplish something and have done little to none.
300 Barack Obama Endorsed Occupy Oakland Protesters Arrested after Violent Clash with Police … Protesters Assault Police Officers
Take a good look America at what President Barack Obama is endorsing.
In yesterdays confrontation with police, nearly 300 Occupy Oakland protesters. These protesting thugs stated their intention was to provoke officers and engage in illegal activity. That is exactly what took place. Most of the arrests were made when protesters ignored orders to leave and assaulted police officers.
Pics of protest in Oakland can be seen at the LA Times.
Dozens of police maintained a late-night guard around City Hall following daylong protests that resulted in 300 arrests. Occupy Oakland demonstrators broke into the historic building and burned a U.S. flag, as officers earlier fired tear gas to disperse people throwing rocks and tearing down fencing at a convention center.
Saturday’s protests — the most turbulent since Oakland police forcefully dismantled an Occupy encampment in November — came just days after the group said it planned to use a vacant building as a social center and political hub and threatened to try to shut down the port, occupy the airport and take over City Hall.
Comments from Mayor Jean Quan as Occupy Oakland protesters threw rocks, bottles and other objects at officers.
An exasperated Mayor Jean Quan, who faced heavy criticism for the police action last fall, called on the Occupy movement to “stop using Oakland as its playground.”
“People in the community and people in the Occupy movement have to stop making excuses for this behavior,” Quan said.
Protesters clashed with police throughout the day, at times throwing rocks, bottles and other objects at officers. Police responded by deploying smoke, tear gas and bean bag rounds, City Administrator Deanna Santanta said.
Oh yeah Barack Obama, these folks really represent the 99%, they represent anarchy and law breaking. Is that what Obama is endorsing? Some one might want to bring this up during the 2012 Presidential election.
UPDATE I: Arrests have now gone over 400 in Oakland. The Occupy protesters have so much to be proud of.
More than 400 anti-Wall Street protesters were arrested in Oakland during a night of skirmishes in which police fired tear gas and bean bag projectiles, the city said on Sunday, marking one of the biggest mass arrests since nationwide economic protests began last year.
It appears that the Republican Florida primary may be called when the polls close …
The Florida primary is a two man race and according to most all polls, Mitt Romney has a lead over Newt Gingrich. Check out the numerous polls HERE that have Romney well ahead in the Sunshine state. At RCP average polling, Romney is up by double digits over Gingrich by 11.3%. Looks like it may be over thin FLA.
Mitt Romney up big in latest Marist/NBC poll. With just days to go before the all important Florida primary that may determine who shall win the GOP Presidential nomination, Romney up by 15% over Gingrich.
PPP has Romney up as well and the trend is strong movement away from Newt Gingrich and toward Mitt Romney.
According to a Miami Herald/El Nuevo Herald/Tampa Bay Times poll released late Saturday night, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney leads former GOP Speaker Newt Gingrich by 11 points. However, even more noticeable is that the poll shows that Romney is also leads President Barack Obama in a hypothetical match up 48% to 44%.
Gingrich is badly trailing Romney by 11 percentage points, garnering just 31 percent of likely Republican voters heading into Tuesday’s presidential primary, according to a Miami Herald/El Nuevo Herald/Tampa Bay Times poll released late Saturday night.
President Barack Obama should be wary as well. Romney beats Obama by a 48-44 percent spread — a lead inside the error-margin, however — in a theoretical general-election matchup, the poll shows.
In the Republican primary, Romney’s lead looks insurmountable. It cuts across geographic, ethnic and gender lines. And the poll indicates Romney’s attack on Gingrich as a Freddie Mac insider is a hit with GOP voters.
As stated by Hugh Hewitt, Gingrich got some help from Sarah Palin and Herman Cain, but it has come too late because Newt built his candidacy on a promise built on a premise, both of which have been shattered this past week. Gingrich is supposed to be able to hammer Obama in a debate; however, Newt hardly accomplished that this past week against Romney. That is one thing that Newt will not be afforded if he ever did win the GOP nomination. There is no way a stumbling Obama with no teleprompter would ever agree to more than 2 or 3 debates.
The promise was that he could thrash President Obama in the debates and the premise is that there would be many debates just like the one in which he successfully jammed John King.
Of course Newt’s two bad debates this week (with Thursday’s being especially lousy) blew up the foundation for Newt’s campaign, and while the Speaker and his die-hard supporters want to blame various factors –the crowd, Romney’s claims etc– the average Florida voter got two previews of coming attractions and are judging the Speaker according to what they saw not by what he says they should have seen.
All the complaining in the world regarding the MSM because when running against President Obama, the One will have the liberal state run media in his back pocket looking to put their guy in office for 4 more years.
From Phil Valentine, ‘An Inconsistent Truth’ … Its the Movie Al Gore and the Green Meanies Don’t Want You to See
A MUST SEE DOCUMENTARY …
It is finally here, opening this Friday, a film by Shayne Edwards and Conservative radio talk shows host Phil Valentine provide us with a documentary regarding the global warming myth that Al Gore does not want you to see … AN INCONSISTENT TRUTH.
Global warming, with no due respect to Al Gore, its hardly settled science. Find out really what is behind the global warming alarmists and those that would want to push through “Cap & Trade”. As we always say … follow the money. Why am I thinking that Robert Redford will not be playing this at the Sun Dance Film Festival or there will be no Oscar nominations for best documentary. Just a hunch.
From director Shayne Edwards and award-winning radio host Phil Valentine, An Inconsistent Truth takes you along for the ride on one man’s quest for the truth. Many people believe in man-made global warming but they don’t know why. This is one of the most important issues of our day yet the average American knows so very little about what’s really going on. Is that by design? Who stands to make billions off cap-and-trade legislation? Why do those who raise their voices the loudest lead the most wasteful lifestyles? Is carbon dioxide really a pollutant or is it a harmless gas that’s essential to life here on Earth?
This movie is an entertaining, fact-filled odyssey that will have you thinking, cheering and laughing. Phil Valentine goes straight to the experts and so-called experts and demands to know the truth. And the truth just may change your life.
Music from the documentary, An Inconsistent Truth … ‘Tip of the Spear’
Actually, I noticed while viewing this VIDEO, that I made the editing cuts
Phil Valentine has been a voice of Conservatism for quite some time. I have had the opportunity to meet him on a couple of occasions. Check out Uncle Phil below at an event from a Tea Party rally in 2009 … its a classic!
Law Enforcement Sources Say that Blood was Found Inside the Home of Missing 20 Month Old Ayla Reynolds in Maine
This can’t be good, blood found inside the home of missing missing 20 month old Ayla Reynolds.
20 month old Ayla Reynolds has been missing since December 17, 2011 when she was reported missing by her father Justin DiPietro. Tha father told police he believed his daughter was snatched from her bedroom in his Waterville, Maine home.
Days later following the search for missing Ayla Reynolds, law enforcement stated that the case had evolved from the search for a missing child to a “criminal investigation.” As reported at WCVB-TV in Boston, they know know why the case turned to a criminal investigation, as blood was reported to be found at the in the home. It is now being determined whose blood it is and how long it has been there.
Multiple law enforcement sources have told McPhee that blood was found inside the home.
Maine State Police have now confirmed blood was found in the basement of the home at 29 Violette Ave.
Authorities said the crime lab is still working to determine whose blood it is, and how long it had been in the basement.
Multiple law enforcement sources also told Team 5 Investigates that Reynolds’ father left the police station when he was shown crime scene photos of luminol-enhanced blood stains taken at the home.
Two maternal relatives of missing toddler Ayla Reynolds have taken polygraph exams. Previously, Ayla’s mother, Trista Reynolds, took a polygraph exam January 18; however, was not able to complete it due to a medical condition. Also, Ayla’s father, Justin DiPietro, took a polygraph test as well DiPietro says police did not provide him with the results. The police say that is not the case and they did.
Ayla’s uncle passed the exam, while Ayla’s grandmother was unable to complete it, according to aylareynolds.com.
In an interview with the Morning Sentinel, Becca Hanson, Ayla’s grandmother, declined to discuss the exam’s specific questions, but said she told the polygraph examiner she had nothing to do with 21-month-old toddler’s disappearance.
The exam was administered Friday by Maine State Police at Cumberland County Jail in Portland, she said, but the polygraph administrator couldn’t conclude the exam because Hanson’s daily medications interfered with the results. Hanson takes “muscle relaxers, pain-killers, depression medication and an antibiotic,” she said.

Tennessee College Republicans from the Obama Generation to “The Debt Generation” … Welcome to Obama’s Generational Theft
Obama’s reelection bid is no longer and promises of “hope & change,” its about running on his record …
Barack Obama has pretty much disillusions ed every one that voted for him in 2008, no voting block more than the college age youth. They have gone from the Obama generation in 2008 to the “DEBT GENERATION”. Watch the video below from the Tennessee College Republicans, aptly titled, ” The Debt Generation”. Check out the Debt Clock.
The Debt Generation
Hat Tip: Gateway Pundit
In 2008 more than 2/3 of America’s youth voted for Barack Obama; however, little did the naive college kids know that Barack Obama would hang them out to dry and create an out of control debt of political gifts that they would be responsible for. Many of them now regret that they ever voted for Obama. The One handed out gifts like Santa Claus; however, Santa does not charge you for the gifts he gives, Obama does. Fewer young voters see themselves as Democrats and unlike 2008, the Obama magic is gone. The bloom is off the rose and Obama is not perceived as “Hope & Change” but instead the same old, same old of an establishment politician.
Welcome to the “generational” theft of Barack Obama. The result, Obama has lost the luvin’ feeling of America’s youth.
UPDATE I: A blast from the past from Vanderbilt from 2009 … And the Obama gang thought we would just forget.
“Caylee’s Law” Passes State Assembly in California with Overwhelming Bipartisan Support, Headed To the State Senate … Kentucky Proposing Law as Well … Delaware Too
Caylee Anthony’s legacy … There may not have been “Justice for Caylee” … however, other children may receive it.
“Caylee’s law” has passed the State Assembly in California with near unanimous support. The bi-partisan supported bill is now headed to the State Senate. The law inspired by the death of 2 year old Caylee Anthony and the outrage of the “not guilty” verdict of Casey Anthony, the child’s mother who was accused and tried for murder. “Caylee’s Law” would make it a crime for a parent to not report a child’s death or disappearance within 24 hours. However, a misdemeanor and only 1 year in jail seems like a rather lame sentence.
CAYLEE’S LAW … JUSTICE FOR CAYLEE
“Caylee’s Law” would make it a crime for a parent to not report a child’s death or disappearance within 24 hours, according to the Sacramento Bee. Offenders would be charged with a misdemeanor and could face up to a year in jail and a $2,000 fine. The law is inspired by Casey Anthony, who failed to report her daughter’s death for a month, but who ended up notoriously being acquitted of murder. Los Angeles Democrat Holly Mitchell sponsored the bill.
The California version of Caylee’s Law passed the assembly 66-3 and it will will off to the state Senate for a vote. What should be common sense to report your child missing, was not the case during the Casey Anthony murder trial who eventually stated that the child was never missing, but drown. However, that did not prevent a missing persons case to ensue where eventually Caylee’s remains was found in a swamp.
It is hard to believe that a state would need to make it a crime for a parent to not report their child missing, but if states do not want future Zanny the nannies being blamed for kidnappings and children even being reported missing rather than parents going clubbing instead, a law need to be passed. That is what Florida prosecutor Jeff Ashton faced during the Casey Anthony murder trial. Listen to interview to Jeff Ashton HERE. Its kind of hard to not act in a bipartisan manner when it comes to the protection of children. What kind of person would throw their child into the woods, when thousands of strangers who never knew Caylee came to the memorial site to honor and stand with the little girl.
Mark Oxner Campaign Ad for Florida District 27 … “Turn This Ship Around” … ““let’s not enslave our children with debt”
And now for a campaign ad that is completely different … from Mark Oxner for Congress. Oxner appears to be running against liberal flame thrower and former Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson, who was booted out of his District 8 office in 2010. The New Times actually calls it a “slave ship,” as depicted in the ad. Really? Have the libs at the NY Times not noticed the mountain of debt that Obama has strapped future generations to come with? Sorry if this ad does not meet the NY Times politically correct standards.
From The Blaze:
File this one under wackiest political advertisement ever made — or, at the least, one of the oddest to date. You may think that I’m being dramatic here, but take a moment to watch the 39-second clip called, “Turn This Ship Around,” that was recently created and released by the Mark Oxner campaign.
Oxner, a Republican, is hoping to win the District 27 congressional seat in Florida come November. His new video, which departs wildly from more issue-based campaign pleas, is turning heads for more reasons than one.
The bizarre ad takes place on a vessel that looks like pirate ship — but with some amenities. The New Times actually calls calls it a “slave ship.” While there’s no definitive way to determine that this is, indeed, intended to invoke images and themes related to slavery, footage of children rowing the massive boat with a voiceover that says “let’s not enslave our children with debt,” only add fuel to the fire.
Just curious, when Obama and Democrats only want to increase taxes and spending on the backs of the American people and continually increase the debt on the Chinese credit card, have record numbers on food stamps, high unemployment and actually stopping a work projects like the Keystone XL Pipeline that chooses Saudi and Venezuelan oil over Canada … what else would one call it?
The proposed District 27 is supposed to encompass most of Oceola County, plus bits of Orange and Polk counties, if the map survives probable challenges in court.
Vice President Joe Biden predicted that Democrats would take back the House of Representatives in 2012. Of course what else is he supposed to say? While addressing House Democrats gathered for their annual retreat on on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. However, the idea of putting the gavel back in the hands of Nancy Pelosi should be enough for most everyone to never have Democrats control the House again. Of course this is the same Biden that said prior to the 2010 elections that saw the GOP win big, “the death of the Democrat party has been greatly exaggerated”. Hey Joe, how did that work out for you and the Democrat party?
House Democrats will win the House in November, swinging the gavel back into the hands of Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Vice President Biden predicted Friday.
“Nancy, I think, is not going to be remembered just for being the first woman Speaker,” Biden said, “she’s going to remembered for being the second woman Speaker.”
Addressing House Democrats gathered on the Eastern Shore for their annual retreat, Biden said the combination of GOP obstructionism and a strengthening economy will propel the Democrats back into control of the lower chamber after just two years in the minority.
For Democrats to take back the House they will need to have a net 25 wins more than the GOP. Sorry, but such a win would need the effort of a “wave” election. That is hardly going to happen when partisan Barack Obama is up for reelection and and the GOP is poised to take back the US Senate in 2012. Barack Obama is still under 50% in job approval, the economy still mired in a pathetic recovery, unemployment high, record number of people on food stamps and the President’s signature piece of legislation Obamacare hated … its hard to believe there will be any coattails. Also, the GOP still holds an edge in the Generic Congressional ballot.
As stated by Larry Sabato of the Crystal Ball, in order for Democrats to win back the House, President Obama will need to win next year, and that probably won’t be enough. What Democrats really need is a poisonous, damaged Republican nominee who not only loses to Obama but causes harm down the ticket. With so much on the line, a Presidential race and the Democrats having so many Senate races to defend, its hard to imagine the Donkeys will win back the House.
There is no truth to the rumor that Biden made the prediction with an Indian accent.
