DCCC hits Rush Limbaugh on his rape comments

September 16, 2014

Rush-Limbaugh-79418828_480x360 As you may or may not know, I am not a fan of Rush Limbaugh. It seems to me that he does more harm than good to the conservative cause in the interest of self-promotion.

  We saw this in 2012 when the Democrats were laying the foundation for the war on women angle which they eventually used to help them in presidential election. When Sandra Fluke burst on the scene Rush Limbaugh, in his infinite wisdom, called her a slut and said she should provide a sex tape so that he could get something out of it.

  After days of laughing about the reaction of the mainstream media to his comments he was finally forced to apologize when he realized it was hurting his bottom line. But the damage was done as he played right into the Democrats trap and helped them to escalate the war on women angle. There is no doubt in my mind that Rush Limbaugh’s comment, and his continual commentary on his original comment, helped the Democrats to win in 2012. How much of a role it played I do not know, but I do believe it did play a role.

Benghazi: Former State Department official claims the department “separated” documents to protect Hillary Clinton

September 15, 2014

 HRChissyThe Benghazi select committee is going to begin hearings later this week and if this story is true they might just have a new line of inquiry to pursue in this scandal. A former State Department official, Raymond Maxwell, is alleging he walked in on a secret basement meeting after he had heard he was not invited (even though people who work under him were) and he found that they were separating documents ahead of the original Benghazi probe.

Jay Carney says it will not be a good year for Democrats in the election

September 14, 2014

 Jay Carney appeared on CNN’s ‘State of the Union’ this morning and he reiterated what seems to be the prevailing logic of political prognosticators at this time–the 2014 midterm elections are not going to go well for the Democrats.

  Here is part of what he had to say:

It’s not going to be a good year for Democrats by definition,” Carney said. “The sixth year is always particularly bad for a president’s party. You couple that with the fact so many seats are defended by Democrats in red states where Mitt Romney did very well against the president, double-digits in most cases, and there’s no outcome in November that anybody could say would be great for Democrats except for barely holding onto the Senate

  Historically he is correct and this should be a bad year for Democratic incumbents, and normally I would agree with his assessment, however he fails to take into consideration the ineptitude of the Republicans in the Congress, or the fact they are bereft of any real leadership.

Weekend open thread: Thank You

September 13, 2014

 Here is the open thread for September 13th and 14th. You might be wondering why I have posted the open thread a day early and why it encompasses two days and I will get to that after the formalities of the open thread.

  Please feel free to post links to interesting articles and to discuss whatever issues arise during the course of the day. Nothing is off-topic here.

  Last week was yet a very slow week by the standards of America’s Watchtower; we only discussed eight topics and three of my posts were Bill Whittle videos.

  I understand that all of you are busy and cannot always find the time to check the blog for updates so why not subscribe to America’s Watchtower and receive email updates whenever I write a new post? That is the easiest way to follow the blog to ensure you never miss another post.

  In addition to subscribing you can also follow America’s Watchtower on Facebook and Twitter by clicking the links on the right. But you will get more than that for I often post links to articles I probably will not be writing about so it is a great way to keep up with what is happening.

  The Twitter widget in the sidebar is fully interactive. This widget updates my tweets in real time and allows you to respond to or retweet my tweets right from the blog. It also allows you to tweet me right from America’s Watchtower. How cool is that! If you do not have a Twitter account what better reason do you need to sign up for one!?

  This was a very special week for me personally; on September 9th my wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. I met Lauri when I was a young lad of 17 and she was only 14 and we have been together ever since. We knew fairly early on that we were meant for each other and on September 9th of 1989 we married and have never looked back.

  Lauri is my wife, my love, my lover, my soul-mate, and more importantly, my best friend and I cannot imagine my life without her. I would be nothing without her. I love Lauri more than anything else in this world and I thank God for putting the two of us together. Just looking at her smile makes me glow for she is the most beautiful person, both inside and out, that I have ever seen in this world. Together we have raised two of the best boys a parent could hope for and I know in my heart that it is because of her that Andy and Tim have turned into the men they are.

  This weekend Lauri and I will be headed to Portsmouth, New Hampshire, to celebrate our love for each other. Thank you my dearest friend!

If the sun refused to shine, I would still be loving you.
When mountains crumble to the sea, there will still be you and me.

Kind woman, I give you my all, Kind woman, nothing more.

Little drops of rain whisper of the pain, tears of loves lost in the days gone by.
My love is strong, with you there is no wrong,
together we shall go until we die. My, my, my.
An inspiration is what you are to me, inspiration, look… see.

And so today, my world it smiles, your hand in mine, we walk the miles,
Thanks to you it will be done, for you to me are the only one.
Happiness, no more be sad, happiness….I’m glad.
If the sun refused to shine, I would still be loving you.
When mountains crumble to the sea, there will still be you and me.

Supreme Court Justice Sotomayor says Americans should be alarmed by the spread of drone use

September 12, 2014

sotomayer I have not written anything about the spread of drone use in the United States in quite some time but longtime readers of America’s Watchtower know that I am very concerned with this issue.

  Yesterday, on the anniversary of September 11th, Supreme Court Justice Sotomayor, an appointee of Barack Obama, addressed Oklahoma City University’s law school and she warned that Americans should be alarmed by the spread of drone use in this country.

  Here is part of what she said:

Firewall with Bill Whittle: Tie-Dyed Tyranny

September 12, 2014

 Here is the latest Firewall video by Bill Whittle entitled ‘Tie-Dyed Tyranny.’ In this latest video Mr. Whittle talks about the environmentalists and how they are now gaining control over what a person can do on what was once his or her private property. “The bludgeon of control and extortion under the fig leaf of ecology.” 

The US government threatened Yahoo! with a $250,000 a day fine for not complying with PRISM

September 11, 2014

NSA Most of the controversy surrounding the NSA spying scandal has to do with the gathering of metadata from virtually every call made by Americans, but the NSA is not content with just that data.

  The NSA has also been using a program called Xkeyscore to gather online information–from emails to Facebook–on whomever it deems to be a threat. (And judging by the groups which the IRS has been targeting we can make a safe assumption who the Federal Government feels is a threat.)

  But that is still not all the NSA has been up to: the agency has also been using PRISM to gather information from tech companies on American citizens and their online habits as well. Without a search warrant to boot!
