My Weasel of the Week nominee is PETA!! .

Sarah Palin posted a photo of her 6-year-old special needs son, Trig, trying to help with the dishes. Nobody immediately reacted when he said he needed help to reach the sink, so Trig took it upon himself to solve the problem. He stood on the family dog, Jill, a black lab especially trained to be a companion for kids like Trig who suffers from down syndrome.

When Palin posted the photo, PETA went nuts. Now I’m a dog, an animal lover, but really???

Hmmm… funny thing?!? When Ellen DeGeneres, who doesn’t suffer from Downs or the like, posted virtually the same photo of herself standing on the family dog as a child, there were crickets from PETA and then they nominated her women of the year.

And when President Obama admitted that he ate dog meat as a child in Indonesia there wasn’t a peep either from PETA.

Or how about when New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio dropped the groundhog, who eventually died, at the yearly celebration? I don’t remember a peep from PETA then either.

But like with anything else in today’s climate, if you are a Democrat or a Progressive from either party, you are untouchable and always excused, but if you are a Republican or worse yet, a tea party Republican, you are fair game with a target on your back for anyone or any group to inflict their fake outrage. Just ask former Governor and GOP Presidential Candidate Romney .

But Sarah Palin responded to PETA like only Sarah can!

2013 Official Christmas Card Only Features the Four-Legged Obamas

White House Christmas cardiLoveDogs: You won’t see a picture of Barack, Michelle, Malia and Sasha smiling beside a tree on the official 2013 White House Christmas card.

No… just as last year and in 2011, the only Obama family members on this year’s card are those with four legs – and this time, it’s Bo and his new friend, Sunny; a bit odd!

The pop-up card, designed by Michigan artist Chris Hankinson of PopUpCards.com, features the two Portuguese Water Dogs walking in front of a 3D White House.

“As we gather around this season, may the warmth and joy of the holidays fill your home,” the card says. All six Obamas have signed the card – Bo and Sunny’s signatures include their (faux) paw prints.

Speaking of “gather around,” that happens to be the holiday theme this year at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

“It celebrates the stories and traditions that bring us together this special time of year,” says the White House website. “As members of one American family, we are united in a story built over the course of two centuries.”

During a holiday decorating party at the White House earlier this month, Sunny made headlines when she bumped noses with 2-year-old Ashtyn Gardner, causing the little girl to fall to the ground.

Although the news media painted Sunny as a bit of a monster (“Sunny Obama: Terror of Toddlers” was the U.S. News and World Report headline), a video showed that the incident was simply an accident… and no big deal.

“If Ashtyn remembers anything from the event, it’s getting that big hug from the first lady and playing with the dogs,” her dad told CBS News.

Replicas of a more subdued Sunny alongside Bo are also featured on the 2013 gingerbread White House. You can watch it being created in this official video:

Flushing Dogs

In the midst of the all the media hysteria and political establishment temper tantrums over Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee’s attempt to defund ObamaCare, Sarah Palin just wrote: Cruz and Lee acted as the grassroots’ flushing dogs or critters says Palin for Breitbart.com and of course posted on her Facebook a tool that she has become an expert at using.

palin-hunting-flushing-dog

Hunters know what flushing dogs do. Cruz and Lee were acting as the grassroots’ flushing dogs. Their actions showed us who was willing to stand up for hard working Americans and who wasn’t. We thank Senators Vitter, Paul, Crapo, Enzi, Fischer, Roberts, Scott, Heller, Grassley, Toomey, Moran, Rubio, Shelby, Risch, Inhofe, Portman, and Sessions for standing with Cruz and Lee, wrote Sarah Palin.  Read full article HERE.

But although hunters know what flushing dogs do, most Americans do not.

Wikipedia: Essentially, a Flushing Dog is a gundog trained to flush game, especially birds, by first finding the game then driving it from its hiding place for a hunter to shoot or capture. Flushing dogs are different from other gundog types such as pointers and setters, dogs which remain still after locating the game, or retrievers, dogs that fetch the game after it has been shot. Some types of dogs have been specially bred for flushing ability, such as cockers and other spaniels. Other breeds of gundog are also often trained as flushing dogs, especially retrievers. Most flushing dogs are very people-friendly and make excellent companions and pets.[1]

Hunters will tell you, nothing beats a well-trained flushing dog for exciting upland action on birds and small game, and much of their success lies in the training.

But, great flushing dogs are born, not made, and the best trainer in the world would be sorely pressed to compensate for a canine’s faulty genes. Unfortunately, picking a pup is more art than science, no matter how much kennel browsing you’ve done.

When I’m in the market for a puppy, I start shopping by looking through the classified ads in local papers and networking with fellow dog owners. The tip that resulted in finding my current field companion was passed along with the mashed potatoes at a Pheasants Forever fund-raising dinner. I bit right away because the tipster shared my love for flushing breeds and knew exactly what I was looking for. Even better, the litter of puppies he had in mind were the offspring of another avid hunter’s prize bitch. That dog was the nemesis of neighborhood birds, and I rightly suspected her pups would be chips off the old block.

So, before you check out a puppy, ask yourself just what you want in a dog. Then meet your prospects’ sire and dam too, if they are available for inspection. Only then will you be ready to start comparing littermates.

Sarah Palin would probably tell you that great servants of the people like Cruz and Lee are also born, not made. Although if you ever heard Ted Cruz’s dad, Raphael Cruz, speak… you might question that.

Yet Another Taxpayer Paid Luxury Vacation For The Obamas, Including a Private Jet For The First Dog… Again

JoshuaPundit:  You can’t make this stuff up.

Our president and the First lady are enjoying the president’s fourth luxury vacation this year, at the ultra-pricey Martha’s Vineyard.

Like many of us, the Obamas will unfortunately be downsizing their vacation this time. Their normal rental, the 28-acre Blue Heron Farm has been sold, so they will be reduced to making do at a $7.6 million, 5,000-square foot retreat on nine acres located in Chilmark on the western tip of the island that includes its own basketball court. They’ll be there eight days, so the American taxpayer will probably be picking up the tab for a full two weeks. Martha’s Vineyard in season is extremely pricey.

Now, no details of what that’s costing us, but we do know that over 70 rooms have been booked for the Secret Service and the rest of the entourage not deemed worthy to spend the night on call at the estate. Each room costs $345 per night. mere hovels by Martha’s Vineyard standards. The Secret Service normally gets there a few days before the First Family, so let’s figure ten days. That works out to well over $240,000, just for lodging for the help. With food and incidentals, we’re probably talking around $300,000 plus on the conservative side, not counting transportation and fuel.

And speaking of transportation, President Obama decided to commandeer two MV-22 Ospreys, military aircraft that carry 24 passengers each and cost $11,000 per hour to fly. One of them held the first family, its luggage and some of their more favored servants. The other one was – wait for it – a dog taxi used to fly in the First Dog, Bo.  So what is up with that?  Why can’t Bo travel with the family?  Any guesses??

Round trip cost for two MV-22 Ospreys, about $88,000, not including maintenance.

This also doesn’t include the cost of transporting the president and his wife’s entourage who didn’t manage to hitch a ride in the ospreys. Or any additional Cadillac Escalades or other vehicles they required.

Another little item we have to account for is construction costs for each one of the president’s little idylls. Whenever the president travels, extensive renovations have to be performed for the length of his stay to deal with things like security, advanced communication networks and the like. And then these renovations have to be removed and the house returned to its original condition when he leaves. This can cost anywhere up to several hundred thousand dollars.

I’ve never had much good to say about President George W. Bush, but because he made a point of vacationing at his ranch in Crawford, the American taxpayer only had to do this once. We’ve already had to do it four times this year alone for President Obama.

Our final tab for President Obama and his family’s little taste of the sweet life? Probably around a million dollars, give or take a few greens fees or the odd less than four star meal. That comes out to about $125,000 per day…a lot more than the majority of families in America live on for a full year.

President Obama ‘gets’ the middle class, all right. Good and hard, and without any lubrication…

You be the judge…

Dead Dogs Voting for Obama

(WND)Voter fraud is the big issue that may decide the outcome of this upcoming election.

Obama_dog-275x275[1]In Seattle, Wash., last month, Brenda Charlston received a voter registration form in the mail from the Voter Participation Center with all the blanks filled in for “Rosie Charlston,” her black Labrador who died in 1998.

The Obama supporting center says it has mailed some 5 million forms using commercially available databases to target Democratic-leaning groups such as unmarried women. What did they use in the Brenda/Rosie mailing? The dead dog mailing list?

In June, in Buford County, Va., Tim Morris received a filled-out voter registration form for “Mozart Morris” addressed to “Mo,” his dog that passed away two years before. Again, the form came in the mail from the Voter Participation Center.

In Bernalillo County, N.M., an anonymous Republican registered his dog as a voter at a voter registration booth at the University of New Mexico to show how easy it would be to defraud the system. Election officials claim they followed the law and referred the case to state prosecutors for criminal investigation of the dog owner!

Election officials throughout the country report a surge of voter registrations from animals, dead people and noncitizens.

Republicans believe Obama is depending on these registrations to win the election and want laws requiring voter ID at the polls. Democrats charge that Republicans are trying to suppress the vote to increase the odds of a Romney win.

This Democrat charge formed the basis of a lawsuit by Obama’s Department of Justice to block a Texas law that requires voter photo ID to vote. Texas is one of 26 states with such laws.

The DOJ claimed the requirement would bar eligible voters from voting and that the cost of getting the proper ID amounted to a “poll tax.” The Texas law provides for a free state ID to anyone lacking a driver’s license or other photo ID.

A study by a DOJ expert produced a long list of Texans who lacked government-issued photo ID and, it was alleged, were thereby disenfranchised. The list and the study were a fraud.

The list turned out to contain the names of 50,000 dead people, 330,377 seniors who can vote by mail without ID, 261,887 voters who included a driver’s license number on their voter registration form, 800,000 Texans who were, in fact, registered to vote and who did have a government issued photo ID.

The list also contained the names of Texans with U.S. military ID (acceptable for photo ID to vote), former Texas residents who had moved to other states, disabled voters who were exempt from the Texas photo ID law and noncitizens.

Strangely, the list of those who “lacked government issued ID” included former President George W. Bush, two state legislators and the wife of another, former U.S. Sen. Phil Gramm, current U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison and even the Texas director of elections, Keith Ingram – who was listed not once but twice!

However, even the Texas attorney general has yet to find the names of any dogs, living or dead, on the list.

Obama’s DOJ also went after Florida for passing a similar law. It seems that Obama voters who were dead, felons or noncitizens would not get to vote.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott ordered county election officials to examine the integrity of the voting rolls. In the first review, the names of 83,000 dead people were discovered still registered to vote.

The dead deserve representation given the estate-tax debate, but the law does not yet allow them to vote.

DOJ also objected to Florida’s insistence that felons be barred from voting.

Noncitizens were also found on the voter rolls, and Gov. Scott fought to get access to the federal Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements, or SAVE, database. SAVE will allow Florida to purge the voter roll of noncitizens.

In a strange, parallel world, the Obama Agriculture Department requires ID on every cow, and now on every chicken, on every American farm.  Guess they will be voting now also via proxy?!?

Obama wants to trace the movement of farm animals but not illegal aliens; he wants to ID every farm animal to protect the public health but does not want to ID voters to protect the integrity of elections.

With the memory still fresh that the 2000 presidential election was decided by a handful of voters in Florida, the determination of who gets to vote in 2012 could decide who will be the next president.

I wonder how many Fifis, Busters, Princesses, Samsons, Angels, Apachis, Bouzers, Angelinas, Killers, Preciouses, Merlins, Annabelles, Buddys, Cocos, Beaus, Tinkerbells and Spikes, etc. are voting?  But not to worry… we don’t need voter ID and there is no voter fraud going on…  So just move along and close your eyes, there is nothing to see here…
