Newsbusted: Secret Service Changes Obama's Code-Name To Ebola (Based On His Lack Of Popularity)

It is not a secret that the people charged with protecting the president use code-names  to describe the commander-in-chief and each of his family members. Their latest name for President Obama is very unique.  According to Newsbusted Anchor Jodie Miller (see video below) upon seeing how Democrats running in 2014 are avoiding the President like the plague, they have renamed Obama, "Ebola."

Other news items covered in the latest installment of Newsbusted the twice- weekly faux news feature from Newsbusters.org (embedded below) include; The CDC's failures in controlling Ebola, MSNBC's record low ratings; Crossfire get's cancelled again;and much, much more.

Please make sure you watch the video below because something bad always happens to the people who don't. Last week Texas Democrat Wendy Davis forgot to press play and now her campaign for governor has fallen apart. So if you don't want your campaign to fall apart you better press play.

Wendy Davis' Campaign Hits Rock Bottom-->Issues Press Release Claiming Greg Abbott is Anti-Dildo

When Democratic candidate for Governor of Texas Wendy Davis suggested her opponent Greg Abbot was against interracial marriages I was sure she had hit bottom..


I was wrong! A few hours later her campaign sent out this press release:


Yes Texas, Wendy Davis believes if Greg Abbot is elected governor he will take away all of your B.O.B.s (battery operated boyfriends). 

The article Ms Davis points to supports her charge about Abbot and interracial marriage and charges he would ban the sale of sex toys.

Apparently Davis got the idea for her interracial marriage attack when the San Antonio Express-News editorial board asked Abbott if he would have opposed interracial marriage 50 years ago if he had been the Texas attorney general at that time. She couldn't have gotten it from the fact that Abbott is married to a granddaughter of Mexican immigrants which in itself is a strong indication of how Abbott feels about mixed-ethnic and mixed-racial marriages.

When asked the ridiculous question of how he would have handled interracial marriages50 years ago, Abbott responded:
Right now, if there was a ban on interracial marriage, that’s already been ruled unconstitutional,” Abbott told the San Antonio Express-News editorial board.  “And all I can do is deal with the issues that are before me … The job of an attorney general is to represent and defend in court the laws of their client, which is the state Legislature, unless and until a court strikes it down.”
When Express-News’ Peggy Fikac told Abbott his answer was unclear, Abbott replied:
“Actually, the reason why you’re uncertain about it is because I didn’t answer the question. And I can’t go back and answer some hypothetical question like that.”
The only thing to learn from this line of questioning is that unlike Eric Holder who has opposed in court legislation passed by Congress and signed by the President, Abbott believes in the more traditional obligations of an Attorney General which is to defend every bill passed by the legislature and signed by the executive. Which gets us to the B.O.B. part of Ms Davis' latest charge.

She found that charge in an article in the Texas Observer which said in part:
In 2008, Abbott chose to defend the state’s ban on the sale of sex toys, a case that emerged from the fallout of Lawrence v. Texas. Over the years, Abbott has deployed novel legal arguments against gay marriage. But this wasn’t a case about gay marriage, a subject that still animates sincere moral disagreements. This was a case about every American’s god-given right to buy dildos.

At the time, anti-sex toy laws were widely understood to be unconstitutional, but Abbott suited up for battle. The state, his lieutenants argued with straight faces before the 5th Circuit, had an interest in “discouraging prurient interests in autonomous sex and the pursuit of sexual gratification unrelated to procreation.” The state of Texas has a pressing interest, Abbott said, in discouraging you from masturbating or blowing your boyfriend [Those are the author's words not Abbott's] That was just six years ago.
The Attorney General's role is as lawyer for the state, as so he has to support in court the legislation passed by the legislature and signed by the governor. If he had not represented the state of Texas in the law suit he would have been just as wrong as Eric Holder when he refused to represent the U.S. Government in the suit against the Defense of Marriage Act.

For Davis to bring Abbot's opinion of dildos into a campaign is just a reflection of the desperation  (from an election point of view) she feels.

Hypocrite Alison Lundergan Grimes' Family Eatery Pays Low Wages Offers Dishes Named After Mom's Breasts



Hugh Jass Burgers say that fast and you will understand the them of the eatery run by Alison Lundergan Grimes' family. While the Democratic Party Candidate talks about raising the minimum wage and decries the "sexism" of the Republicans, her family's restaurant pays its waiter/waitress staff $2.13/hour and serves dishes named after Grimes' mom's breasts and her sister's ass.

CNN's Chris Frates reported about Grimes' family business during "The Lead" on Monday" 

Frates: In her race to defeat Mitch McConnell, Alison Lundergan Grimes has barnstormed Kentucky, talking up her support for raising the minimum wage.

Grimes: I'm fighting for all Kentuckians, all working Americans across this nation. I don't believe $7.25 an hour raises a family of four above the poverty level.

Frates: So you might be surprised that grimes' family business pays some tipped employees only minimum wage. Here in Kentucky, servers at Hugh Jass Burgers (yep you heard that right) making just $2.13 an hour. That's the minimum wage for tipped employees and it hasn't budged since the '90s. The minimum wage for workers who aren't making tips is $7.25 an hour, a figure that last increased five years ago. So what gives? We went to Kentucky to find out.

Grimes: For me, it's about making sure that hardworking Kentuckians have a fright future and that future includes having not just a minimum wage but a living wage.

Frates: And the restaurant owned by Grimes' family, a living wage includes one that depends on tips.

Grimes: My family isn't in this race. I'm on the ballot.

Frates: What Grimes doesn’t mention is that while she doesn't own the restaurant, she did do some of its legal work, signing the business incorporation documents and representing the restaurant in a lawsuit. The minimum wage isn't the only issue where the restaurant doesn't practice what grimes preaches. On the campaign trail, she's been an advocate for women's issues. Her camp even accused Republicans of sexism

Grimes: I am the Kentucky woman who my Republican colleagues refer to as an empty dress.

Frates: But check out what's on the menu at Hugh Jass Burgers. “Charlotte’s Rack” sure to be named biggest rack, ribs named after her mom. “Abby's huge ass,” a burger named after her sister. And they sell souvenir items such as this “check out my buns apron.” When we tried to ask Grimes about her family's use of the phrases, she walked away, leaving us holding the greasy burger bag. With two weeks to go, the race remains tight. But national Democrats have started putting their

Israel Repeats Mistake-Allows Citizens To Purchase Homes Wherever They Wish (Obama To Rebuke Freedom)

According to the President of the United States there are places in the world where anybody should be able to buy a home....except for the Jews. Last month his administration criticized Israel for allowing Jews to purchase homes (with real money) in East Jerusalem. Today Israel repeated the horrible mistake of allowing anybody in the country the freedom to buy a home wherever they want (even the Jews).

Ateret Cohanim, an organization that settles Jews in Arab areas of East Jerusalem, said it facilitated the purchase of two buildings from their Arab owners in the neighborhood of Silwan. Spokesman for the group Daniel Lurie said the buildings contain nine apartment units and that Jewish families and religious studies students would soon move into the properties. They moved in Sunday evening bringing the total number of Jewish families in the area to 17.

The Palestinian Maan news agency reported that the buildings were sold by their Palestinian owners to another Palestinian man, who then sold the buildings to the Jewish group. The buildings have stood empty for the last four months, according to Maan.

Ynet reported that the houses were purchased for the Yemeni Community Committee. The area in Silwan where the buildings are located was founded by Yemenites in the 1880s, who left the area in 1938 due to Arab violence.

In 2010 Elder of Zion related the history of the Yemenite Jews of Silwan :

In 1882, Jews emigrated from Yemen to Jerusalem. As they failed to find room in the city within the walls, they resided in caves on the Mount of Olives slopes. The city's Jewish dignitaries rushed to help the Yemenite families, and Yisrael Dov Frumkin, owner of the Havatzelet newspaper, established the "Ezrat Nidachim" association which raised funds for the families.
South of the village of Silwan were non-constructed areas owned by Boaz the Babylonian, who donated them in order to build houses for the Yemenite Jews (marked with yellow arrows). The houses were named Kfar Hashiloach. Additional Jewish families gathered in the area, which housed up to 200 families.
In the 1921, Arabs attacked the neighborhood's residents, killed some of them and torched houses. They "completed" their work in the 1929 riots. The British Mandate authorities, which did not want any conflicts, ordered the residents of Kfar Hashiloach to evacuate themselves from the area.
Last month when Jews purchased homes in the same neighborhood of Silwan , it drew sharp condemnation from the U.S. so expect the administration to deliver another rebuke to Israel for allowing its citizens to purchase homes in private deals wherever they wish.

President Obama has not mentioned any other places around the world where he believes anyone in the world can purchase homes---except for the Jews.

New Scandal: Nashville Police Chief Says Secret Service Lied About Search Warrant, Abused Power

The Chief of Police of Nashville Tennessee is accusing the Secret Service of abusing its power and then trying to cover it up by asking his officers to fake a warrant. Music City's Police Chief Steve Anderson said when he complained to top Secret Service officials in Washington about the incident they took no action.

According to a letter the Chief sent member of the House Oversight committee (embedded below), the incident occurred in  January 2013 when a Secret Service agent made a frantic call for backup to Nashville police after he and another agent went to the home of a Nashville man, investigating threatening comments posted on Facebook about the President. The man who posted them had refused to let the agents into his house.
"He shoved the door in our face and went around the corner. Looks like, we're not sure if he ... possibly he had a gun in his hands," the agent told a 911 operator.

In a letter that he first sent to Secret Service headquarters, the Nashville police chief recounted what happened.

"The resident refused to come outside and shouted back, 'Show me your warrant,'" Anderson wrote. So "one of the agents then asked a [police] sergeant to 'wave a piece of paper' in an apparent effort to dupe the resident into thinking that they indeed had a warrant
Apparently the agent simply waved a piece of paper around but he did not have a warrant

As soon as Nashville cops showed up they realized that the Secret Service agents did not have a warrant or any other legal basis to enter the man's house, and the man, who had a legal permit to carry a gun, had never actually threatened anyone.
That's when officers decided to pull out.

"I think you can see that had the MNPD officers complied with the directive from the Secret Service agents, there was likelihood for this event to have escalated into a serious and/or embarrassing situation for both of our agencies," Anderson wrote to then-Director Pierson and Assistant Director A.T. Smith.

But, in the more recent letter to the congressional committee, Anderson said that Pierson "did not acknowledge my letter."

Assistant Director Smith did call, but "his tone, at best, was condescending and dismissive," the chief added. "I realized that I was being told, in a polite manner, to mind my own affairs."
Chief Anderson demanded a meeting with bosses inside the Secret Service's Nashville office.
He recalled asking, "Do you think it is appropriate to wave a piece of paper in the air and tell him you have a warrant when you do not have a warrant?"

"Answer: 'I don't know. I'm not a lawyer.'"
Anderson told the committee:
Because of this, and other events occurring here in Nashville, have found it necessary to issue a standing directive requiring that any interaction or request for assistance from members of the Secret Service must be cleared by a captain or above from this agency. Frankly, this is not a good way to do business. i completely recognize the need for our two agencies to work together, but at the same time find it necessary to protect the personnel I am responsible for from being compelled to engage in questionable activities.
This scandal is much different than the other secret service scandals which involved inappropriate behavior and failure to protect the President. In some ways this is much worse, a failure to recognize American's 4th Amendment rights against search and seizure. Something that has been happening way too often during the Obama Administration.
