Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad paid a visit to Brazil over the weekend to discuss a number of trade and diplomatic issues with Brazilian President Luiz Anacio Lula de Silva.

This is a continuation of Iran’s drive to build stronger ties in Latin American.  Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez is already an ally of Iran, and Iran has also opened embassies in Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Nicaragua and Uruguay.  Brazil appears to be next on that list.

Venezuela is receiving help in locating uranium deposits which Chavez says will be used for domestic power production (does that sound familiar?).  With Brazil, Iran is shopping for nuclear technology among other things.

This is also evidence that Brazil is stepping away from close cooperation with the US following its criticism of Barack Obama’s effort to restore the ousted President Zelaya of Honduras in violation of the Honduran constitution.

We can look forward to continued disorder in South American affairs as the bungling foreign policy of our president dismays our allies and encourages those who would spread their socialist mantra across the region.

One wonders what diplomatic leverage (and it appears shrinkingly small) was purchased by Obama’s decision to lend $2 Billion to the Brazilian Oil Company, Petrobas, to develop offshore oil fields in the Atlantic.  Or was that just a payoff to George Soros?

Quite a few Brazilians protested Ahmadinejad:

Here’s some analysis by the Council of the Americas:

ACORN-WFP Logos

From Big Government.com:

The Working Families Party and local Democratic Party Officials are at the center of a massive voter fraud scandal in Troy, NY.

According to the Times Union:

Dozens of forged and fraudulent absentee ballots from people registered to vote on the Working Families Party line were filed in the Sept. 15 primary elections in Troy.

Documents at the county Board of Elections show the fraudulent ballots were handled by or prepared on behalf of various elected officials and leaders and operatives for the Democratic and Working Families parties.

There may be as many as 50 absentee ballots that were forged, according to people close to the case. Countywide, there were 126 absentee ballots applied for on the Working Families Party line.

What isn’t mentioned is that WFP is nothing more than a front group for ACORN.  Or as Roger Stone put it:

The Working Families Party is not about working people or families and it isn’t really a party. The WFP is a wholly owned subsidiary of ACORN. Bertha Lewis co-chair of the Working Families Party is the Executive Director of New York ACORN. New York ACORN leader, Steven Kest was the moving force in forming the party and WFP headquarters are located at the same address as ACORN’s national and New York office at 88 Third Avenue in Brooklyn, New York.

WFP is essentially a money funnel which pays for an aggressive door to door canvas. Largely funded by unions, the WFP is ACORN’s “political arm” in New York State. Candidates supported by the Working Families Party and issues supported by ACORN are both advocated on the door steps of target voter homes as they share one major voter canvas.

March On Washington 9-12-09

Only three things marred the day.

  1. One of our ladies was arrested Friday night (no she was not filming yet another ACORN expose) and we spent all of Saturday in court trying to get her released.  It was 7pm before that happened and the march was over.  Luckily the court was only two blocks from Pennsylvania Avenue so we were able to take walks down during the delays to take pictures and video.  This incident will be the subject of a future posting.
  2. Someone in DC government issued a permit for a marathon to be run in streets adjoining Freedom Square.  I guess they never thought that the number of Americans who could possibly object to our government’s ‘March To Socialism’ would ever exceed the square’s capacity!  Epic Fail!  When irate marathon organizers tried to get folks arrested for crossing the street they stepped beyond the limits of decorum.  Blame Government, Not Conservatives!
  3. The mainstream media followed the lead of the Associated Press and reported thousands and thirty thousand as the number of marchers.  The above photo is from AP itself and puts the lie to their own crowd estimate.  I understand the DC Metropolitan Police estimated the size at 2.2 million.  They reportedly shut the Metro and closed interstate exits into the city due to the congestion.  Associated Press Lies!

I got a call from my brother who reached Freedom Plaza about 9am.  The Plaza was full to overflowing and people were backing up on all the side streets around.  I began to see that as we passed on our way to court.  The Plaza, Pennsylvania Ave and E Street were jammed full of people.

The crowd was alread spilling into 14th Street and the situation on 13th was much worse!

Some boob in whatever department issues permits in Washington had issued a permit for a marathon on E Street and 13th Street for the exact same time as the Tea Party rally and march!

The marathon organizers were livid that mere common American citizens were spilling over into their sacrosanct venue.  They were busy trying to get police to arrest anyone that stepped foot into the street!  Unfortunately that was the only way many people coming to the rally could go!  If the Metropolitan Police had tried to enforce even a little of what the marathon organizers wanted they would have had to arrest thousands and the epic riot that would have ensued would have been one for the history books!

My brother called me about 9:30 to say that the police were no longer able to handle the size of the crowd and that the march was beginning an hour and a half early to help clear the square!

Jim sent this photo from the Marriot Hotel looking down on Freedom Plaza about this time:

We happened to be standing in front of this building, the Newseum, whose inscription of the first amendment fired up the crowd as they marched past:

Here is a taste of what the march was like!

The March lasted for over two and a half hours from curb to curb along Pennsylvania Avenue!

I’ll give them a break and guess that they may have had 200 moonbats present.  They speed up the video of the group walking around the cricular fountain in a futile attempt to make it seem more impressive!  The same people appear three or four times!  Epic Fail!

Obama will speak on healthcare tonight.

In the interest of providing some facts that will likely be glossed over or ignored entirely by the socialist in chief, here are some videos:

Second, Fewer Choices for Special Needs:

Finally, The Heritage Foundation proposes a common sense approach to reform:

Now you are armed with  many of the facts to provide an informed counterpoint to the President’s propaganda speech.

As more Americans become aware of the facts, support for Obamacare is plummeting.

Hundreds turned out for a Tea Party on the historic Morristown Green!

A small pathetic group of counter protesters march around the periphery of the green with ancient election posters.

Our buddy Tom was there to capture the scenes on video and photos!

Morristown Green was the site of Lafayette telling George Washington and Alexander Hamilton that France was going to assist the colonies in their rebellion against England.

Congressman Weiner knows how to avoid his constituents. The advertisement for his Town Hall meeting in Brooklyn had the wrong date!  So if you weren’t already aware of the correct time and place you would have arrived a day late!

Weiner did his dog and pony show, which basically consisted of seeing one slide and having to listen to him drone on for about an hour before he would read any preselected questions.

P1030920

His narcissistic prancing about in front of the audience while retaining almost total control of the microphone grew weary for some attendees and they left before the audience demanded that he answer some spontaneous questions.

Weiner read the definition of ‘socialism’ to debunk claims that the actions of this administration were socialist, but got upset when asked (and was unable) to give the definition of fascism.  Here’s a little help, Congressman:

A system of government marked by centralization of authority under a dictator, stringent socioeconomic controls, suppression of the opposition through terror and censorship, and typically a policy of belligerent nationalism and racism.

Excepting the nationalism, which this administration instead exhibits as belligerent anti-nationalism, this definition fits to a T.

This nurse asked a great question about healthcare workers being forced to take vacines for the H1N1 (swine flu) virus.  He didn’t really answer her.

P1030922

Those who left early missed the moment when Weiner went full blown moonbat!

He pranced about the auditorium, like a petulant child, shouting that Bush was the worst president ever!

And that we should shut up because they WON the election!

Barack Obama is all in favor of offshore drilling for oil.  Just not here in America. To prove the point, his administration is ready to lend $2 Billion dollars to Petrobas, the huge Brazilian Oil Company, to drill in their newly discovered oil fields off their Atlantic coast.

Brazil-Petrobras

Why is this president so intent on giving our money away in bucketfuls to left wing criminal enterprises in the U.S. and left wing governments in other countries?  Or, could it be that almost 25% of George Soros’ portfolio is invested in Petrobas?

The world wonders.

You wouldn’t suppose that any of this money might be making its way to certain numbered bank accounts overseas do you?  Naah!  Chicago style politicans are just too honest for that…

Sarah Palin writes about Your Tax Dollars Hard at Work… On Foreign Oil.

So why is it that during these tough times, when we have great needs at home, the Obama White House is prepared to send more than two billion of your hard-earned tax dollars to Brazil so that the nation’s state-owned oil company, Petrobras, can drill off shore and create jobs developing its own resources? That’s all Americans want; but such rational energy development has been continually thwarted by rabid environmentalists, faceless bureaucrats and a seemingly endless parade of lawsuits aimed at shutting down new energy projects.

So, Mister Obama, How is this move ending our addiction to foreign oil??  Or has that campaign promise joined the others under the bus?
