Video: Boehner confronted about Fast and Furious, avoids the question

The Daily Caller's Nicholas Ballasy asked House Speaker John Boehner if he supported the 100 congressmen who've either called for Attorney General Eric Holder's resignation or for a resolution of "no confidence." While Boehner said he supports Issa's investigation, he didn't answer the question. In particular, he would not respond to the part about whether he would bring the "no confidence" resolution to the floor.

If you just watch Boehner's answer, you might feel pretty good but when you include the question and how blatantly he avoided it, the warm and fuzzy feeling kinda goes away.

This is the only part of the exchange that Boehner's office has posted to his website (notice the question is missing):

New Jersey Sheriff hires Anti-Islam man to train Deputies

Expect this to get national attention fairly quickly. The federal government has proven to be either completely inept or complicit when it comes to the threat of the Muslim Brotherhood to our homeland. The state governments seem to be only mildly better and only seem to run into the federal government buzz saw when they address the problems (anti-Sharia law in Oklahoma for example).

Enter Rutherford Country Sheriff Robert Arnold in New Jersey. He has hired, retired FBI agent John Guandolo, one of the most outspoken critics of Islam, Sharia Law, and the Muslim Brotherhood to train his deputies.

Via the Tennessean:
A former FBI agent who claims Nashville’s mosques have no legal right to exist is training the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office about Islam and the threats of terrorism.

John Guandolo, vice president of the Arlington, Va.-based Strategic Engagement Group, is leading training being held at World Outreach Church in Murfreesboro. He spoke at an anti-Shariah law event at Cornerstone Church in Madison on Nov. 11, calling local mosques front organizations for the Muslim Brotherhood with no right to exist.

“They do not have a First Amendment right to do anything,” Guandolo said then.

Rutherford Sheriff Robert Arnold said his department simply wants to learn about Muslim culture.

“There are not many classes out there for anything when it comes to Muslims … but this training isn’t just about that, it has many other components to it,” he said. “My stance is and my office’s stance is, we are not here to pick sides. I am here to protect the people of this county, and I am never going to waiver from that.”
When it comes to county sheriffs standing up to do the job neither the federal nor state governments are doing, Arnold is not alone.

Check out the County Sheriff Project. Though it doesn't focus on Islam, the CSP consists of sheriffs that appear to be drawing a line in the sand when it comes to its constituents.

Here is video of Guandolo you dont' want to miss:

Video: Santorum shows difference between "Rombo," and "Rahmbo"

A little late posting this but worth a look if you haven't seen it yet. The strategy of the Romney campaign has been the politics of personal destruction ever since it proved effective in Iowa when it was used to derail Gingrich's momentum. After Santorum's performance in Iowa, Romney's PAC went after him. When Gingrich won in South Carolina, team Romney turned its sights back on to Gingrich in Florida.

In short, Romney's money has his opponents out-gunned at every turn, which makes this ad from Santorum's campaign one of the more effective because it's both humorous and a very accurate allegory for what Romney is doing.

Former Obama Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel became known as Rahmbo. The Santorum campaign now has introduced Rombo:

Video: Obama OMB Director makes Big Gaffe

It's been a rough week for Barack Obama's OMB Acting Director Jeffrey Zeints. It began when Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) made him look foolish after Zeints wouldn't answer a very basic question.

A day later, Zeints was in front of the House Budget Committee and actually torpedoed a central component in the argument of Obama's Justice Department in defense of Obamacare's individual mandate. First, the argument is that portion of the law that allows the government to fine anyone who doesn't purchase health insurance is rooted in the government's taxing authority.

Via National Law Review, h/t Hot Air:
The minimum coverage provision is independently authorized by Congress’ taxing power. The DOJ argues that the provision operates as a tax law, and the validity of an assessment under Congress’ taxing power does not depend on whether it is denominated a tax.
Yet, while being questioned by Rep. Scott Garrett (R-NJ), Zeints responded to a question about whether the fine was a tax by saying it wasn't.

Busted. Not that it matters, though. This administration has absolutely no problem with doing whatever it wants while lying all along the way.
