HAPPY EARTH DAY From Barack Obama as He Uses 9,000 Gallons Of Jet Fuel for Air Force One’s Trip To Everglades for Speech No One Shows Up At
What is wrong with this picture, actually both pictures.
HYPOCRISY ALERT … Yesterday, Barack Obama traveled to the Florida Everglades to provide a speech on global warming and the supposed impact on the environment on Earth Day. However, there was a slight problem that added a bit of irony and a interesting bit of hypocrisy … Obama’s trip on Air Force One to the Florida Everglades to promote environmentalism used 9000 gallons of jet fuel. Nice carbon footprint Barack. As reported at the Washington Free Beacon, Barack Obama’s Earth Day trip to Southern Florida will emit roughly five times as much carbon dioxide as the average American does in a full year. But of course, conservation and doing without is only for the common folk, not Barack Obama. How typical of the LEFT to tell others what they should be doing and then doing just the opposite themselves.
WH spox Josh Earnest spins his way out of a question on Obama’s global warming hypocrisy … Answer, because he is Obama and your not
Transcript via Rabble Writer:
MR. KNOLLER: On the Everglades trip, does the President risk undermining his message when he flies to the Everglades on a 747 hundreds of miles to make a statement about climate change? (Laughter.)
PEANUT GALLERY: He could drive. (Laughter.)
MR. EARNEST: It’s a provocative question.
UNIDENTIFIED: Take a van.
MR. EARNEST: But, no, he doesn’t. The President believes that there are important changes that we can make to reduce carbon pollution in this country, and we can do it in a way that will be good for our economy. That is precisely the case that the President will be making at the Everglades. And he’s looking forward to the trip.
MR. KNOLLER: Does he try to minimize the carbon footprint that he leaves whenever he goes anywhere?
MR. EARNEST: Well, obviously, the Department of Defense and the Presidential Airlift Group at the United States Air Force is responsible for the President’s transportation. So you can talk to them about any steps that they may have taken. I can say as a general matter that the Department of Defense has acknowledged that climate change does pose a national security threat to the United States. And there are a lot of practices that the Department of Defense has taken to try to reduce their carbon footprint. I don’t know how that intersects with the use of Air Force One, but you could check with the Air Force on that.
With swampy wetlands and alligators as his backdrop, President Barack Obama will use a visit to Florida’s Everglades to warn of the damage that climate change is already inflicting on the nation’s environmental treasures — and to hammer political opponents he says are doing far too little about it.
Obama’s trip to the Everglades on Wednesday, timed to coincide with Earth Day, marks an attempt to connect the dots between theoretical arguments about carbon emissions and real-life implications. With his climate change agenda under attack in Washington and courthouses across the U.S., Obama has sought this week to force Americans to envision a world in which cherished natural wonders fall victim to pollution.
According to CBS News White House Correspondent Mark Knoller, Obama’s Earth Day trip to the Everglades will cover 1,836 miles roundtrip and consume 9,180 gallons of fuel on Air Force One.
If one actually believes this dribble of global emissions of carbon dioxide cause global warming, how does one explain their actions of causing more harm than good?
According to data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration, burning that much jet fuel will produce more than 88,000 kilograms of carbon dioxide. That is about five times as much as the 17,600 kg that the average American emits annually, according to United Nations data.
Jet fuel “produces, in addition to carbon dioxide, NOx, sulphates, and particulate matter, all of which amplify the impact of aviation on global warming,” according to the Flying Clean Alliance, a group that advocates restrictions on aviation-related greenhouse gas emissions.
Now let’s figure out the amount of jet fuel used, the amount of carbon emissions spewed into the atmosphere and the number of people that actually attended Obama’s Earth Day speech. WHERE ARE ALL THE PEOPLE? Seriously, where are any of the people? How does anyone justify this trip to speak in front of 25 people? There may have been more alligators in attendance.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest Not Categorically Denying Clinton Foundation Donors Received Special Treatment From Sec. of State Hillary Clinton
HMM … OBAMA WHITE HOUSE NOT CATEGORICALLY DENYING CLINTON FOUNDATION DONOR AND FORMER SEC. OF STATE HILLARY CLINTON QUID PRO DOUGH SPECIAL TREATMENT …
Why would it be difficult for Barack Obama’s White House press secretary Josh Earnest to say categorically that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did not provide special treatment for those who were donors of the Clinton Foundation? One would think that would be a straight forward response of, absolutely not. However, not with the most transparent presidency in history. The Obama White House does not seem to have an answer to the accusations made from the recent book by Peter Schweizer, Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich” otherwise known as Quid Pro Dough.
The new book, “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich” by Peter Schweizer, lays out the case that contributions to the foundation influenced State Department policy from 2009 to 2013, during Clinton’s tenure.
ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl asked Earnest Monday, “Can you say categorically that no donors to the Clinton Foundation – nobody paying any honoraria to former President Clinton – received any favorable treatment from this administration or from the State Department?”
Earnest talked at length about the memorandum of understanding Clinton signed when she joined the Obama administration, saying that it went above and beyond ethical guidelines, given her unique circumstances.
“I know there have been a lot of accusations made about this but not a lot of evidence,” Earnest said. “So, the president continues to be extraordinarily proud of the work Secretary Clinton did as secretary of state. For the details of some of those accusations, I’d refer you to Secretary Clinton’s campaign.”
Karl pressed, “Can you assure us absolutely no favorable treatment given to donors of the Clinton Foundation?”
Earnest repeated, “There are lots of accusations. There is no one who is marshaling the evidence for this. I don’t want to be in a position.”
HOW SAD AND PATHETIC IS BARACK OBAMA WHEN YOU FIND YOURSELF AGREEING WITH IRAN’S AYATOLLAH KHAMENEI.
Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, broke his silence on the so-called “framework” the Obama administration has been trumpeting as the basis for a nuclear accord with the Republic of Iran. Khamenei’s speech not only pulled the rug out from underneath the Obama administration, but also went after Obama and called him a liar. Khamenei accused the Obama administration of “lying” about the proposed terms, being “deceptive,” and having “devilish” intentions.
I guess Khamenei knows Obama well and has seen him operate as president. Lying, deceptive and having devilish intentions, that sounds pretty much spot on when it comes to Barack Hussein Obama. It would appear that Ayatollah Khamenei knows that Barack Obama is the Lying King as well.
Depending on proximity to the podium at which Barack Obama delivered his victory speech about an alleged “historic” nuclear deal with Iran, at the end of the April 2 speech some of the more formidable bushes in the Rose Garden had not wilted and died from the withering effects of 18 minutes of self-aggrandizement and legacy weaving by The One.
Surviving Rose bushes notwithstanding, Obama’s vaunted deal all but vanished into thin air as Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, pummeled Obama with words so harsh that one must reluctantly concede that the Ayatollah, although a congenital liar and despicable tyrant himself, has unwittingly unearthed the truth about America’s number one problem: The presidency of Barack Hussein Obama.
“Earlier today, Khamenei broke his silence on the supposed “framework” the Obama administration has been trumpeting as the basis for a nuclear accord. Khamenei’s speech pulled the rug out from underneath the administration.
Khamenei accused the Obama administration of “lying” about the proposed terms, being “deceptive,” and having “devilish” intentions, according to multiple published accounts of his speech, as well as posts on his official Twitter feed.”
Bloomberg Poll: Democrats & Independents Don’t Want a Hillary Clinton Coronation, Nor Do They Trust Her Email Story
A recent Bloomberg Political poll shows that both Independents and Democrats do not want a Hillary Clinton coronation, instead they want a challenging primary that will vet the Democrat candidate. According to Democrats and independents, 72% of both groups say her party would be best served by a robust primary where she faces a serious challenger for the nomination. This comes just days away from Hillary Clinton formally announcing that she is throwing her crown into the ring for a 2016 presidential run.
What, me lie?
If Hillary Clinton is to become her party’s 2016 presidential nominee, independents and even Democrats overwhelmingly want to see her earn the title, according to a Bloomberg Politics national poll that also shows increasing headwinds for her candidacy.
As Clinton prepared to formally announce her candidacy on Sunday, nearly three-quarters of Democrats and independents in the survey said it would be a good thing for the Democratic Party if she were to face a “serious” challenger for the nomination. Democrats and independents hold the same view, with 72 percent of both groups saying her party would be best served by a robust primary.
What be more damning and problematic for Hillary Clinton is that 53% of respondents stated that she purposely withheld and deleted emails when she was Secretary of State and conducted government business with a person email account and stored them on her own person server. Hillary Clinton would seem to have a trust issue, but sadly, many Democrats don’t seem to care. Even though 53% say she purposely withheld and deleted relevant emails, the same respondents in this poll gave Clinton a 48% net favorable, 44% net unfavorable rating. That can be described as nothing but pathetic and speaks more to the ethically challenged Democrats who would support someone even if they cant be trusted.
But as Hillary Clinton would say, What difference does it make that she is untrustworthy. Neither are her supports.

Barack Hussein Obama Takes Jab at Christians in Easter Prayer Breakfast as Obama Casts a Stone and Condemns ‘Less-than-loving Christians’
EVEN ON THE HOLY DAY OF EASTER, THIS CLOWN HAS TO MAKE A MOCKERY OF IT AND TAKE A SHOT AT CHRISTIANS …
Barack Hussein Obama can’t find it in himself to call out radical Islam as they slaughter, behead and burn to death innocent Christians … but he has no problem at bashing Christians. But what else should we expect from a Muslim raised individual who developed his religious teaching in Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s Black Liberation theology church?
“On Easter, I do reflect on the fact that as a Christian, I am supposed to love,” Mr. Obama said toward the end of his speech. “And I have to say that sometimes when I listen to less-than-loving expressions by Christians, I get concerned.”
“But that’s a topic for another day,” the president said, receiving laughter and applause.
What a sick, pathetic, little man. This is what a community agitator does and frankly America, you are to blame for being so clueless, so apathetic and so uninformed to elect this sorry excuse of a man.
Bill O’Reilly Says on The O’Reilly Factor … “I Think I Trust Iranian Regime More Than American Press”
Last night on the O’Reilly Factor, Bill O’ Reilly during his Talking Points memo stated that many Americans and Congress do not trust Obama to do anything. At issue now is the so-called Obama-Iranian nuclear framework deal that is questionable at best. O’Reilly went on to say that he did not trust the American Press to interpret the discussion with their Obama bias. O’Reilly then went on to say that he trusts Iran more than the America press. Sadly, that is the state of affairs with the liberal MSM today.
“Here’s what I don’t want. I don’t want the press, cause I don’t trust the press, I think I trust Iran more than I trust the American press. I don’t want the American press interpreting this for me.”
Robert De Niro Says Hillary Clinton Should Be the Next President Because She is a Woman and Has Paid Her Dues
Who knew the qualification to be president were to be a woman and pay your dues … If it were a lying sack of garbage with no idea what transparency was, Hillary would be #1.
Robert De Niro thinks Hillary Clinton should be the next President of the United States because she is a woman and she has paid her dues. HUH? De Niro says that Hillary has “earned the right to be president and the head of the country at this point”. DOUBLE HUH? Please elaborate Mr. De Niro, exactly what has she done to earn the right to be president, other than being a woman? Maybe Hillary earned the right to be president because of Benghazigate and the death of 4 Americans, including US Ambassador Chris Stevens while she was the Secretary of State? Maybe it was that Russian reset that went so well while she was Secretary of State. How about the Clinton Foundation taking foreign money while she was Secretary of the United States? Does that qualify her? Maybe her lack of transparency and her use of a private email accounts to conduct government business that were stored on her own private server in her home is the qualification that should make her president? That same private server that she claims to have wiped clean. Should some one who conducts them self life Richard Nixon during Watergate really be the next President of the United States?
But as all Hilary Clinton sycophants say, what difference does it make what she does, she has paid her dues. Hey Bob, please stick to acting.
Watch Hillary Clinton Lie About Benghazi-Gate During Capitol Hill Press Conference as Trey Gowdy Owns Her
5:50 minute mark of Video: I Believe in transparency, I believe in taking responsibility. Can one get more than 4 Pinocchio’s for lying?
Our talk eventually veered to his prophetic 2006 Hardball appearance, and whether or not he’ll be endorsing Hillary Clinton for president in 2016.
“Hopefully it will be her, yes,” said De Niro. “I think that she’s paid her dues. There are going to be no surprises, and she has earned the right to be president and the head of the country at this point. It’s that simple. And she’s a woman, which is very important because her take on things may be what we need right now.”
“She’s smart, has run things before, and knows how government works and how to get things done,” added Rosenthal. “She’s watched it from the sidelines, and the frontlines.”
But no one can name any accomplishment that qualifies her to be president, except the fact that she would be the first female president. Wow, we all know how the first black president worked out, don’t we?
Carly Fiorina at CPAC: ‘Mrs. Clinton, please name an accomplishment’.
Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, who is actively pondering a run for the GOP’s 2016 presidential nomination, took aim Thursday at Democrats’ likely nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton, saying she didn’t amass any victories while racking up ethics violations during her time as secretary of state.
“Mrs. Clinton, name an accomplishment. And in the meantime, please explain why we should accept that the millions and millions of dollars that have flowed into the Clinton Global Initiative from foreign governments doesn’t represent a conflict of interest,” Mrs. Fiorina said at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
Tammy Bruce Who is Gay Says on FOX & FRIENDS, Gay Liberals Have Turned into a Mob of Fascists and Bullies
WOW, TAMMY BRUCE SAYS GAY LIBERALS HAVE TURNED INTO A MOB OF FASCISTS AND BULLIES … PROBABLY THE MOST INTELLIGENT COMMENTS ON THE ISSUES AS I HAVE SEEN
Radio host and Fox News contributor Tammy Bruce, an openly gay women, spoke the truth on Fox & Friends when she said that LGBT people against turning into fascists. Her remarks were in repsonse to how the LGBT activists viciously and savagely went after Memories Pizza and its owners for their religious beliefs. Tammy Bruce said what everyone wanted to say, but coming from a gay person was much more powerful. Bruce blasted the LGBT community and said, “For you to turn into what we have been fighting against for generations … so that we can condemn people who are different and with whom we disagree, it is the antitheses of what every civil rights movement was about.”
She is 100% correct. Tammy Bruce also stated that Democrats are trying to use this frenzied, wolf-pack attack by gays for their own political advantage. She went on to say, “If there is any one in the world who should understand the vulnerability of being a minority, of being somebody that may be others don’t understand or relate to, the vulnerabilities of work and jobs and be able to live your lives as you see fit, IT’S THE GAY COMMUNITY.” Or so you would think. Will the LGBT take any heed to Tammy’s comments? Probably not.
The gay liberals have turned into bullies, when our work is to stop that kind of behavior
Fox News contributor and openly-gay woman Tammy Bruce warned LGBT people against turning into fascists while opposing the controversial Indiana law.
Bruce said LGBT people opposing people who support the Indiana law, like the pizzeria who won’t serve same-sex marriages, goes against everything the gay rights and civil rights movement stand for: respecting other people’s views and lifestyles.
“For you to turn into what we have been fighting against for generations…” Bruce began, adding “so that we can condemn people who are different and with whom we disagree, it is the antitheses of what every civil rights movement was about.”
Bruce then evoked fascism to caution LGBT people on the Indiana law issue: “We saw this with Chick-fil-A, everybody came to Chick-Fil-A’s defense when they were under attack by fascists, by bullies–the gay liberals have turned into bullies.”
Just like with Chick-Fil-A, the LGBT community better be careful here and not overplay their hand. With the initial mob attack on Chick-Fil-A back in 2012 and the massive support shown to the them, it would appear that the silent majority is also coming to the aid of little Memories Pizza.
Owners of Memories Pizza Express Their Freedom of Religion and the LGBT Activists & Cronies Have Become the Bullies that they Have Complained About for Years
THE HATEFUL GAY MOB: WHEN YOU BECOME THEY VERY EVIL THAT YOU HAVE PROTESTED AGAINST, YOU HAVE LOST YOUR WAY AND DON’T DESERVE ANYONE SUPPORT.
The story of Memories Pizza in Walkerton, Indiana is just the most recent example of just how intolerant, vicious and hateful the LGBT community has become lately. The state of Indiana passed a law protection religious rights with the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, a law that was very similar to the federal one and the law passed by 19 other states. However, the LGBT activists, their cronies and and all-too willing leftist MSM attacked and misrepresented the law as being anti-Gay. Caught in the middle of the controversy and in the eye of the storm was little known and unheard of Memories Pizza located in Walkerton, IN.
Crystal O’Conner was asked a so-called hypothetical question by a news reporter, which was probably more of a set up hit piece than a question, if they would not cater a gay wedding? Her answer was, if they came into their restaurant they would most certainly serve them food; however, because of their religious beliefs, they would not cater a gay wedding. The LGBT brown shirts and liberal MSM lost their collective minds.
A small town, family-owned pizzeria has become the latest target of an angry mob of modern-day fascists — hell-bent on silencing anyone who opposes gay marriage.
Kevin O’Connor and his daughter Crystal own Memories Pizza in Walkerton, Ind. — just a hop, skip and a jump southwest of South Bend.
Mr. O’Connor and his family have been forced into hiding and had to temporarily shut down their store after they told a local television reporter that they would not cater a gay wedding.
“If a gay couple came in and wanted us to provide pizzas for their wedding, we would have to say no,” Crystal told ABC 57 on Tuesday.
The backlash against Memories Pizza and its owners, Kevin O’Connor and his daughter Crystal, was immediate, swift and as vile as it gets. The anonymous cowards on social media made death threats and called Kevin and Crystal every name in the book. One not-so swift nut job actually threatened to burn their business down. Did we mention the individual who made this hateful comment, Jessica Dooley, is the softball and girls’ golf coach at Concord High School in Elkhart, Indiana. We should say was the coach was she has since been suspended. Personally, anyone who is this ignorant to have a criminal threat like this belongs no where around students. The police department conducted an investigation and forwarded the case to the St. Joseph County Prosecutor’s Office for possible charges.
“Who’s going to Walkerton, IN to burn down #memoriespizza with me?” Jessica Dooley asked in the tweet, which has since been deleted. “Agree with #FreedomOfReligionBill? ‘That’s a lifestyle they CHOOSE’ Ignorant.”
But the fix was in and the vile attacks against Memories Pizza was in. They became Public Enemy #1 of the LGBT Hit squad. Not ISIS or countries like Saudi Arabia who kill gays just for being gay, but Memories Pizza. Why, because a bully always picks on the little guy. The O’Conner’s were forced to close down their business because of the mob. Really, the owners of a business were forced to close their business for fear of their own safety. NICE JOB LGBT. Is this what is has come to? Where is the tolerance from the gay community? You mean everyone is supposed to not only tolerate but accept the LGBT? Maybe the LGBT might want to take some tolerances classes of their own.
The family business came under fierce assault by LGBT activists and their cronies — accusing them of being anti-gay bigots. Their Facebook pages were smeared with gay pornography. Their phones were overwhelmed by vulgar and profane threats.
What is sad is that the MOB mentality was allowed to act in this manner and the media fanned the flames. It was not too long ago when the gay community cried foul when the heterosexual mobs used to do the same to them. But of course its different now because the LGBT community is doing it. Sorry, there is a way to do something and a way not to. The idea that people are forced to accept what they do not believe is insane. Most people have a if that’s what you want to do and that’s your right, than so be it … but do not think that you get to infringe on my right with yours.
