Man Gets 7 Years for Stealing
Obama´s Teleprompter

NBC 5 (Chicago IL), by Larry O´Dell

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/13/2013 4:49:42 PM

A career criminal who stole a truck containing President Obama´s audio equipment was sentenced Thursday to seven years in federal prison. Sentencing guidelines called for a term of about three years, but Eric Brown of Richmond, Va., agreed to the longer sentence to avoid prosecution for 14 similar truck thefts in three localities. However, he could still face charges in Stafford County, which did not join Chesterfield, Hanover and Henrico counties in the agreement. Brown pleaded guilty in January to theft of government property. "The theft of government property is a serious offense,"

Although this sentence is not so amusing to the career criminal who earned his trip to the Ironbar Motel by stealing the truck carrying that crucial TOTUS, I am grinning like a cracked pumpkin, watching the Masters, and thinking about F. Scott Fitzgerald´s pathetic character Klipspringer.

Nick Carraway, tying up Gatsby´s affairs after his murder, gets a call from Gatsby hanger-on, a thoroughly useless fellow named Klipspringer, who says, "What I called up about was a pair of shoes I left there. I wonder if it´d be too much trouble to have the butler send them on. You see, they´re tennis shoes, and I´m sort of helpless without them. My address is care of B.F.--" and Nick hangs up the phone in disgust.

Klipspringer would be helpless even with his tennis shoes, just as Obama is helpless standing on his hind feet unless he´s got somebody else to compose what he says. Obama-Klipspringer: useless hangers on.

The man stole a truck. He did not know what was in it. As usual, the headlines are all hype and little fact. The article makes it clear that he is being convicted of multiple thefts. He did NOT get 7 years for stealing Obama´s Teleprompter. For that, he should get an award.

US to temporarily shut down
embassies around the world
Sunday amid security concerns
Fox News, by Staff    Original Article

The United States will temporarily shut down its embassies and consulates around the world Sunday, including those in Iraq, Afghanistan and Egypt, as a precautionary measure, the State Department said Thursday. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf did not say how long the international installations would stay closed -- only that the decision was taken “out of an abundance of caution and care for our employees and others who may be visiting.” Sunday is a normal workday in many Arab and Middle Eastern countries. Embassies in Europe and Latin America would be shuttered that day anyway.

Congress´s top inquisitor subpoenaed the State Department on Thursday for documents detailing the inner workings of the independent board that probed the September attack in Benghazi, Libya. Republicans on the House Oversight panel have accused the Accountability Review Board (ARB) of seeking to protect former Secretary of State and possible 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in its investigation, notably by declining to interview her. Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said he subpoenaed the department because he was being stonewalled. “After ignoring requests for months, the State Department has left no alternative but to issue subpoenas for documents relevant to our investigation,”

Just before the Senate failed to advance a transportation and housing bill Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid tried to give Sen. Tammy Baldwin, who was presiding over the chamber at the time, a little help. Ms. Baldwin, Wisconsin Democrat, attempted to get order of a bustling chamber so senators could speak. “The Senate is not in order,” she said. “The Senate will be in order.” “Madame President, Madame President,” Mr. Reid, Nevada Democrat, cut in. “Have senators sit down and shut up, OK?

A Syrian religious group have banned croissants because they symbolise western oppression. A Sharia committee issued a fatwa, or religious ruling, declaring croissants ‘haram’, which means they are forbidden in Islamic law. The group, which operates in a rebel-held area of Aleppo, said that they have ‘colonial’ significance. They claim that the pastry’s crescent shape celebrates European victory over Muslims, reported Al Arabiya. Islamis sharia committees have declared several strict fatwas in rebel-controlled areas of Syria.

WASHINGTON — Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel warned on Wednesday that if across-the-board budget cuts were not lifted, the United States would have to reduce its global security objectives by trading away the size of its armed forces or its edge in technology as the Pentagon seeks to remain solvent. In a dire assessment of the financial challenges facing the military, Mr. Hagel said the political stalemate between the White House and Congress over a comprehensive deal for taxes and spending has required the Defense Department to plan for a range of cuts, since a deal to lift

The New Jersey governor said if he finds himself in Washington, "I´ll certainly look him up." But he added: "I don´t suspect I´ll be there anytime soon. I´ve got work to do here."

A progressive group will coordinate with liberal activists to disrupt Republican town halls during the August recess, when lawmakers will face questions about Obamacare and comprehensive immigration reform. Americans United for Change, run by a former Democratic National Committee communications head, plans to send activists to Republican town halls in swing states and even red states to target lawmakers like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). "This is a new approach. The theory in the past has been to be stealth about the effort to confront members at town halls--but sometimes it´s been too stealth, and we haven’t generated enough activity,"

WASHINGTON — Former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. has filed his final House financial disclosure report more than six months late, a filing that sheds little light on how he will pay a $750,000 forfeiture for looting his campaign treasury. Jackson, 48, is awaiting sentencing on Aug. 14. Federal prosecutors want him behind bars for four years. His wife, Sandi Jackson, 49, a former Chicago alderman, will be sentenced the same day for a federal tax violation. The government has urged that she spend 18 months in prison. In his plea deal, Jackson agreed to pay the $750,000 forfeiture and

President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that

Serial sexter Anthony Weiner’s wife partly blamed herself last year when her horndog husband confessed to her that he was at it again. Friends and family told People magazine that Huma Abedin was kicking herself at the time for bailing out of couples counseling and focusing more on their newborn baby boy. But, thanks to a new round of joint therapy that continues even now, the couple was able to put the relapse behind them. “They really became a unit, and she feels much closer to Anthony now,” a relative told the magazine.

The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,

As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.

If we learned anything about Barack Obama in his first term it is that when he starts repeating the same idea over and over, what´s on his mind is something else. The first term´s over-and-over subject was "the wealthiest 1%." Past some point, people wondered why he kept beating these half-dead horses. After the election, we knew. It was to propagandize the targeted voting base that would provide his 4% popular-vote margin of victory—very young voters and minorities. They believed. He won. The second-term over-and-over, elevated in his summer speech tour, is the shafting of the middle class. But
