Kim Rhodes Shoots Her Way Into the Olympic Record Books … Win 5 Medals in an Individual Event in 5 Consecutive Olympic Games

Shooting for near perfection …

No American athlete in an individual sport has ever gone to 5 consecutive Olympics and meddled 5 consecutive times. That was until today when  Kim Rhodes of the United States won gold in woman’s skeet.  Rhodes set an Olympic record and tied the world record by hitting 99 of 100 targets on the way to winning the gold medal. She also became the first woman to win three gold medals in Olympic shooting.

She earned a gold medal in women’s skeet, setting an Olympic record and tying the world record by hitting 99 of 100 targets. She also became the first woman to win three gold medals in Olympic shooting.

“I don’t think it’s really sunk in yet, from the time I shot to present, it’s just been a whirlwind of emotions,” Rhode said. “It’s incredible. I’m just waiting for someone to pinch me.”

After Rhode’s final shot, the audience rose to its feet for an ovation, which was followed by Rhode’s tearful acceptance of her medal.

“I don’t think it ever becomes old hat,” she said of the Olympics, adding, “It’s really about the journey.”

Kim Rhodes said during her interview that she would be back for a 6th Olympics to defend her gold medal. Hey why not, she began her Olympic career at the age of 17 in the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, GA and she expects to compete in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

Isn’t this interesting, I bet that Democrats like Chucky Schumer, Diane Feinstein, Frank Lautenburg and Barack Obama would block and question Kim Rhodes as to why she uses so many rounds of ammunition. She averages 500 to 1,000 rounds a day, seven days a week. Sen. Frank Lautenberg (NJ) and Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (NY) will announce new legislation on Monday to regulate the online and mail-order sale of ammunition. Because no one could ever have a legal reason and purpose to use large amounts of ammunition.

Wouldn’t it be ironic if Kim Rhodes was invited to the White House for her amazing Olympic accomplishment? What are the odds that Obama would praise an athlete who’s sport was involved with guns? The heck with that silly 2nd Amendment thing and Rhodes’ record breaking accomplishment.

Liberal MSM Double Standard: CNN attacks Governor Palin with Pink’s “Stupid Girls” Bumper Music … And They Wonder Why They Have No Ratings

CNN used to be known as the most trusted name in news, now they have no ratings and are considered a joke. I wonder why?

Oops, they did it again. The liberal MSM and their double standards are at it again. This time it’s CNN and their genius of playing Pink’s “Stupid Girls’ as bumper music before a CNN Sunday morning piece about former Alaska governor Sarah Palin visiting a Chick-fil-A.  This is the non-bias and hateful treatment one receives from liberals who are so open minded and respectful of others opinions, especially when its in support of traditional marriage. Wow, how original.  How advent guard. Imagine just imagine if something like this was done prior to an interview of a female Democrat? What would happen if DNC Chair and Rep. Debbie Wasserman’s Schultz’ bumper music was ‘Liar, Liar’ or CNN preempted an interview with Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi with ‘The Bitch is Back’? Hmm?

Transcript from NewsBusters:

[Music and lyrics]: Aha, aha. Stupid girl, stupid girls, stupid girls. Maybe if I act like that…

RANDI KAYE, ANCHOR: Sarah Palin is apparently hungry for chicken and controversy. She posted this on Twitter and Facebook: “Stopped by Chick-fil-A in the Woodlands to support a great business.” That is her and her husband Todd. Chick-fil-A has come under fire after, we were just telling you, after its president Dan Cathy came out in opposition to same-sex marriage. Several communities now trying to block Chick-fil-A from coming into their cities. Fellow Republican Mike Huckabee has organized that Chick-fil-A appreciation day scheduled for Wednesday.

Will CNN be asked to apologize?

Hot Air reminds us of when the house band on Jimmy Fallon’s show played a derogatory song clip as then presidential candidate Michele Bachmann was coming on stage. Fallon later apologized. Just curious, what producer of a news network actually thinks that such things like this is actually appropriate and professional? Then again, it’s CNN we are referring to.

Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) in Deep trouble for Reelection, Trails All Three Republican Challengers Brunner, Steelman & Akin

Big MO not on the side of Senator Claire McCaskill in reelection bid in Missouri.

Incumbent Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) trails all three GOP opponents in the latest poll. The full poll results can be seen HERE. John Brunner (R) holds an 11 point margin over McCaskill, leading by a 52%  to 41%. Former state Treasurer Sarah Steelman (R) leads by an 8 point advantage 49% to 41%. Rep. Todd Akin (R) leads by 5 points with a 49%  to 44%  margin. In all three cases, McCaskill is polling well under 50%, in two instances she is in the low 40′s. Can you say vulnerable? Just like Barack Obama is Missouri, McCaskill is polling poorly with Independents.

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) trails all three of her potential Republican rivals, according to a new survey conducted for two Missouri news outlets, cementing her status as this cycle’s most vulnerable incumbent.

Businessman John Brunner (R) holds the largest advantage over McCaskill, leading by a 52 perent to 41 percent margin. Former state Treasurer Sarah Steelman (R) leads by a 49 percent to 41 percent margin. And Rep. Todd Akin (R) leads by a 49 percent to 44 percent margin.

McCaskill’s big problems come among independent voters. She scores just 40 percent among independents against Akin, and she’s mired in the mid-30s when she’s matched up with Brunner and Steelman. And while McCaskill has said she would like President Obama to campaign with her, Obama wouldn’t be much of an advantage — the poll shows Obama trails Mitt Romney by a 51 percent to 42 percent margin.

Missouri is a key US Senate targeted pickup state for the GOP in 2012 in order for the Republicans to regain control of the Senate. McCaskill may be the most vulnerable Democrat Senator; however, there are many retiring Democrats that are allowing for open seats that will most certainly by GOP gains like in Nebraska, Virginia and North Dakota.

McCaskill said that she was going to skip the Democrat National convention and stay home and campaign. From the looks of it, McCaskill has shown the “Show Me” state enough. The real question that needs to be answered is how did a battleground toss up state like Missouri become solid red in such a short period of time? As The Other McCain ponders, if a mid-west state like Missouri has changed so much, how do Democrats and Obama expect to win in others like Iowa, Ohio, Indiana and Wisconsin? Good question.

Joran Van der Sloot to Marry? In Prison for Murder of Stephany Flores in Peru and Prime Suspect in Death & Disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba

Hey Joran, instead of saying “I do,” just admit “You did it”!!!

Is Joran Van der Sloot going to marry while behind bars in Peru and serving a 28 year sentence for the murder of Stephany Flores? Are nuptials in the air for the convicted murderer and the prime suspect in the death and disappearance of Natalee Holloway? Or is this just a PR stunt by his attorney? As Joran Van der Sloot and his attorney attempt to appeal his murder conviction is the “little Dutch Boy” also picking out China patterns? Where would he register?

Do bullet proof vests come in black with matching cumber buns?

The 24-year-old is reportedly planning to marry while serving a 28-year sentence in a Lima prison for the murder of Stephany Flores, according to Peruvian tabloid Peru 21.

Van der Sloot’s defense attorney was named by the paper as a source – but he denied the report.

“As far as I know, he’s not going to get married,” Maximo Altez told the Daily Beast. “They cited me as the source, but I’m just in charge of his legal issues, and I don’t participate in his private life.”

More from the Daily Beast.

And as Van der Sloot tries to squirm his way out of a 28-year sentence, there’s another hot piece of gossip: the possibility of his upcoming nuptials while behind bars. The news broke late last week as local tabloids asserted that he plans to marry and unidentified woman. It’s not the first time Van der Sloot has been branded as a lady’s man—just last year, while he was awaiting trial, a story broke in the local media that a pregnant young woman was carrying his child. She denied it on Peruvian television.

These stories were published through the week, with the information attributed to Altez, who denied he was the source. “I deny all of that,” the lawyer said. “As far as I know, he’s not going to get married. They cited me as the source, but I’m just in charge of his legal issues, and I don’t participate in his private life.”

It is rather sad and quite pathetic that such a news story would be spread by Team Joran Van der Sloot, especially when his victims Natalee Holloway and Stephany Flores will never have the chance to have their wedding day.

When in Doubt, Play the Race Card … “You Didn’t Build That” Resonates Because Obama Spoke in “Black Dialect”

When it comes to defending Barack Obama, when all else fails … it has got to be racism.

Once again we are presented with the Left’s ultimate shameful truth, that if it is bad for President Barack Obama, it is racist. When will the Leftist, bias in the tank for Barack Obama ever learn? It is not about the color of Obama’s skin or his “black dialect,” it is about his far Left, socialist policies and redistribution of wealth. Not just to the “lazy blacks” as the author of this piece shamefully wrote,  but to all persons who would rather leach than produce.  What a joke. Do libs realize just how insanely foolish they look when they continually cry racism to make excuses for this president when none exists? If the Left really thinks that Obama’s comment, “you didn’t build that” did not go over well was because of racism, Democrats will get crushed in the 2012 elections.

The key thing is that Obama is angry, and he’s talking not in his normal voice but in a “black dialect.” This strikes at the core of Obama’s entire political identity: a soft-spoken, reasonable African-American with a Kansas accent. From the moment he stepped onto the national stage, Obama’s deepest political fear was being seen as a “traditional” black politician, one who was demanding redistribution from white America on behalf of his fellow African-Americans.

How sad that this is how the MSM analyzes events.

The key thing is that Obama is angry, and he’s talking not in his normal voice but in a “black dialect.” This strikes at the core of Obama’s entire political identity: a soft-spoken, reasonable African-American with a Kansas accent. From the moment he stepped onto the national stage, Obama’s deepest political fear was being seen as a “traditional” black politician, one who was demanding redistribution from white America on behalf of his fellow African-Americans.

As Jammie Wearing Fool stated, “It can’t be that he’s a failed president. It must be because of his skin color. So glad we’ve moved beyond race, aren’t we? A note to Barack Obama and the bias liberal MSM complex, “You Didn’t Build That” was bad for Obama not because he said it with a black dialect, it was because he actually said it and believes it.

Who is tired of continually being called a racist,l simply because you do not agree with Obama’s policies and agenda? I would dare say many individuals who voted for Obama in 2008 fall into this category. Obama will feel “We the People” political wrath in November because frankly, Americans are tired of being tired and exhausted with this trivial, name calling, ever blaming president.

Rasmussen: Mitt Romney 49% – Barack Obama 44%, The Obamamessiah Cannot Get over 50%

Mitt Romney up by 5 over Barack Obama 49% to 44% in the latest Rasmussen poll.  The incumbent President Obama cannot seem to get over 50%. Obama has a real problem, especially when by a 2 to 1 margin Romney is preferred over Obama to handle the economy, the number 1 issue of the 2012 election. Those undecided voters also agree overwhelmingly that Romney is better equipped to deal with the economy than Obama. Look for undecided voters to break  60-30 for Romney.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows Mitt Romney attracting 49% of the vote, while President Obama earns support from 44%. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and four percent (4%) are undecided.

The numbers are similar to the 49% to 43% advantage Romney enjoys on the question of who is trusted more to handle the economy.
