Colorado gunman planned on killing stars of Dark Knight Rises at NYC premiere

The Colorado gunman planned on traveling to New York City for the premiere of “The Dark Knight Rises”, so he could shoot dead the stars of the movie and any innocent bystanders who stood in his way, it was claimed today. James Holmes had more grandiose plans than gunning down moviegoers at his local theater according to police sources, and only changed his mind at the last minute due to paranoia that police would catch him with a car-load of weaponry.

The National Enquirer reported that actors Christian Bale, Morgan Freeman, Anne Hathaway and Gary Oldman were Holmes original targets, with their deaths being in the very city the movie was filmed in, according to an initial police investigation.

SF-LGBT Activists Shutting Down Government & Business: Keep Closed Gay Bar, Gay

SAN FRANCISCO – This last Monday, LGBT (Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender) activists prevented the San Francisco Supervisors Committee from continuing business.  That business was to approve a permit for another business to replace a business that shut down 3 months ago.

The problem, the new business is not gay.

The old business, the Eagle Tavern.  The Eagle Tavern has been a hub of sorts for the Folsom Street Fair and its openly displayed sensuality.  Many politicians hoping to win the gay vote have also made the Eagle Tavern an obligatory stop.

Openly homosexual Supervisors Scott Wiener and David Campos added their agreement.

Chick-fil-A vs gay marriage: how a chicken restaurant became a culture war battleground – Telegraph Blogs

Chick-fil-A vs gay marriage: how a chicken restaurant became a culture war battleground – Telegraph Blogs.

The Country of Texas

Subject: July 2013 – The Country of Texas

[If this were to become a reality, Texans would have to cope with an influx of former fellow Americans flooding into their country in the multi-millions. These, in turn, would insist that all south of the border illegals be deported immediately to make room for the newly arrived refugees from B. Hussein’s USSA dictatorship. Texas would become an economic GIANT and a terrific threat to the Hussein dictatorship Bto the north…………… ‘something to think about’ indeed.]

Please note that Texas is the only state with a legal right to secede from the Union. (Reference the Texas-American Annexation Treaty of 1848.)

We Texans love y’all, but we’ll probably have to take action if Barack Obama wins the election. We’ll miss you too.

Here is what can happen:

1: Barack Hussein Obama is President of the United States, and Texas secedes from the Union in summer of 2013.

2: George W. Bush will become the President of the Republic of Texas . You might not think that he talks too pretty, but we haven’t had another terrorist attack, and the economy was fine until the effects of the Democrats lowering the qualifications for home loans came to roost.

So what does Texas have to do to survive as a Republic?

1. NASA is just south of Houston, Texas. We will control the space industry.

2. We refine over 85% of the gasoline in the United States .

3. Defense Industry – we have over 65% of it. The term “Don’t mess with Texas,” will take on a whole new meaning.

4. Oil – we can supply all the oil that the Republic of Texas will need for the next 300 years. What will the other states do? Gee, we don’t know. Why not ask Obama?

5. Natural Gas – again we have all we need, and it’s too bad about those Northern States. John Kerry and Al Gore will have to figure out a way to keep them warm….

6. Computer Industry – we lead the nation in producing computer chips and communications equipment – small companies like Texas Instruments, Dell Computer, EDS, Raytheon, National Semiconductor, Motorola, Intel, AMD, Atmel, Applied Materials, Ball Microconductor, Dallas Semiconductor, Nortel, Alcatel, etc, etc. The list goes on and on.

7. Medical Care – We have the research centers for cancer research, the best burn centers and the top trauma units in the world, as well as other large health centers. The Houston Medical Center alone employs over 65,000 people.

8. We have enough colleges to keep us getting smarter: University of Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Texas Christian, Rice, SMU, University of Dallas, University of Houston, Baylor, UNT (University of North Texas), Texas Women’s University, etc. Ivy grows better in the South anyway.

9. We have an intelligent and energetic work force, and it isn’t restricted by a bunch of unions. Here in Texas, it’s a “Right to Work” State and therefore, it’s every man and women for themselves. We just go out and get the job done. And if we don’t like the way one company operates, we get a job somewhere else.

10. We have essential control of the paper, plastics, and insurance industries, etc.

11. In case of a foreign invasion, we have the Texas National Guard, the Texas Air National Guard, and several military bases. We don’t have an Army, but since everybody down here has at least six rifles and a pile of ammo, we can raise an Army in 24 hours if we need one. If the situation really gets bad, we can always call the Department of Public Safety and ask them to send over the Texas Rangers.

12. We are totally self-sufficient in beef, poultry, hogs, and several types of grain, fruit and vegetables, and let’s not forget seafood from the Gulf. Also, everybody down here knows how to cook them so that they taste good. Don’t need any food.

13. Three of the ten largest cities in the United States, and twenty-three of the 100 largest cities in the United States are located in Texas. And Texas also has more land than California, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Maryland, Rhode Island and Vermont combined.

14. Trade: Three of the ten largest ports in the United States are located in Texas.

15. We also manufacture cars down here, but we don’t need to. You see, nothing rusts, so our vehicles stay beautiful and run well for decades.

This just names a few of the items that will keep the Republic of Texas in good shape. There isn’t a thing out there that we need and don’t have.

Now to the rest of the United States under President Obama: Since you won’t have the refineries to get gas for your cars, only President Obama will be able to drive around in his big 5 mpg SUV. The rest of the United States will have to walk or ride bikes.

You won’t have any TV as the Space Center in Houston will cut off satellite communications. You won’t have any natural gas to heat your homes, but since Mr. Obama has predicted global warming, you will not need the gas as long as you survive the 2000 years it will take to get enough heat from Global Warming.

The People of Texas

P.S. This is not a threatening letter – just a note to give you something to think about!

Dark Knight Rises, Colorado shooter first target Manhattan NY

Inside Edition recently aired a clip claiming that the Colorado mass murder’s first target was the Batman Priemere in the upper Westside of Manhattan NY.

His goal was to kill Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, Anne Hathaway, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and the entire cast of Batman Dark Knight Rises, but for some reason believed the New York police were on to him.

This is Ken Cole reporting the news as I see it.

A DC airport ticket agency offers some examples of ‘why’ our country is in trouble!

1. I had a New Hampshire Congresswoman (Carol Shea-Porter) ask for an aisle seat so that her hair wouldn’t get messed up by being near the window. (On an airplane!)

2. I got a call from a Kansas Congressman’s (Moore) staffer (Howard Bauleke), who wanted to go to Capetown. I started to explain the length of the flight and the passport information, and then he interrupted me with, ”I’m not trying to make you look stupid, but Capetown is in Massachusetts .”

Without trying to make him look stupid, I calmly explained, ”Cape Cod
is in Massachusetts, Capetown is in Africa ”

His response — click.

3. A senior Vermont Congressman (Bernie Sanders) called, furious about a Florida package we did. I asked what was wrong with the vacation in Orlando. He said he was expecting an ocean-view room. I tried to explain that’s not possible, since Orlando is in the middle of the

He replied, ‘don’t lie to me, I looked on the map and Florida is a very thin state!” (OMG)

4. I got a call from a lawmaker’s wife (Landra Reid) who asked, ”Is it possible to see England from Canada?”

I said, ”No.”

She said, ”But they look so close on the map.” (OMG, again!)

5. An aide for a cabinet member(Janet Napolitano) once called and asked if he could rent a car in Dallas. I pulled up the reservation and noticed he had only a 1-hour layover in Dallas. When I asked him why he wanted to rent a car, he said, ”I heard  Dallas was a big airport, and we will need a car to drive between gates to save time.”

6. An Illinois Congresswoman (Jan Schakowsky) called last week. She needed to know how it was possible that her flight from  Detroit left at 8:30 a.m., and got to Chicago at 8:33 a.m.

I explained that Michigan was an hour ahead of Illinois, but she couldn’t understand the concept of time zones. Finally, I told her the plane went fast, and she bought that.

7. A New York lawmaker, (Jerrold Nadler) called and asked, ”Do airlines put your physical description on your bag so they know whose luggage belongs to whom?”

I said, ‘No, why do you ask?’

He replied, ”Well, when I checked in with the airline, they put a tag on my luggage that said (FAT), and I’m overweight. I think that’s very rude!”

After putting him on hold for a minute, while I looked into it, (I was dying laughing), I came back and explained the city code for  Fresno, CA. is (FAT – Fresno Air Terminal), and the airline was just putting a destination tag on his luggage.

8. A Senator John Kerry aide (Lindsay Ross) called to inquire about a trip package to Hawaii. After going over all the cost info, she asked, ”Would it be cheaper to fly to California and then take the train to Hawaii ?”

9. I just got off the phone with a freshman Congressman, Bobby Bright (D) from Alabama who asked, ”How do I know which plane to get on?”

I asked him what exactly he meant, to which he replied, ”I was told my flight number is 823, but none of these planes have numbers on them.”

10. Senator Dianne Feinstein called and said, ”I need to fly to Pepsi-Cola, Florida. Do I have to get on one of those little computer planes?”

I asked if she meant fly to Pensacola, FL on a commuter plane.

She said, ”Yeah, whatever, smarty!”

11. Mary Landrieu LA. Senator called and had a question about the documents she needed in order to fly to China. After a lengthy discussion about passports, I reminded her that she needed a visa.
‘Oh, no I don’t. I’ve been to China many times and never had to have one of those.”

I double checked and sure enough, her stay required a visa. When I told her this she said, ”Look, I’ve been to China four times and every time they have accepted my American Express!”

12. A New Jersey Congressman (John Adler) called to make reservations, ”I want to go from Chicago to Rhino, New York.”

I was at a loss for words. Finally, I said, ”Are you sure that’s the name of the town?”

‘Yes, what flights do you have?” replied the man.

After some searching, I came back with, ”I’m sorry, sir, I’ve looked up every airport code in the country and can’t find a rhino anywhere.”

”The man retorted, ”Oh, don’t be silly! Everyone knows where it is. Check your map!”

So I scoured a map of the state of  New York and finally offered, ”You don’t mean Buffalo, do you?”

The reply? ”Whatever! I knew it was a big animal.”

Now you know why the Government is in the shape that it’s in!

Could anyone be this DUMB?



San Francisco Archbishop Niederauer retires; Bishop Cordileone to succeed him

On Friday, Salvatore Cordileone became the new archbishop in San Francisco.

Pope Benedict over-rode the usual process of appointment and hand picked Cordileone to the post for the San Francisco, San Mateo and Marin region.  Cordileone had been stationed across the bay from San Francisco in Oakland, California.

Cordileone has been known as a leader in creating the campaign to pass Proposition 8 on a recent California ballot.  He made no qualms about his views Friday… “”We need to do whatever we can to strengthen marriage, understanding that it is a benefit for everyone in society.”

The current Archbishop, George Niederauer has been experiencing cardiac related issues and has undergone a double bypass heart operation recently.  He therefore will be stepping down in retirement.

Romney would back Israeli strike against Iran

Mitt Romney would support Israel’s decision to launch a military strike against Iran to keep that country from achieving nuclear capabilities, but hopes diplomatic and military measures will dissuade Tehran from pursuing its path toward nuclear acquisition, a top foreign policy adviser for the GOP presidential candidate said Sunday.“Gov. Romney believes we should employ any and all measures to dissuade the Iranian regime from its nuclear course, and it is his fervent hope that diplomatic and economic measures will do so,” said adviser Dan Senor, previewing a speech Romney is scheduled to make Sunday afternoon. ”In the final analysis, of course, no option should be excluded. Gov. Romney recognizes Israels right to defend itself, and that it is right for America to stand with it.” Romney is on a seven-day overseas trip that started Friday in England, will continue this weekend in Israel and conclude in Poland.  Senor said Romney thinks preventing nuclear “capability” – not just a nuclear weapon – is critical.

Spanish bail-out impossible’, experts warn – Telegraph

Spanish bail-out impossible’, experts warn – Telegraph.

As the economic situation in Spain worsens by the day, many think it is only a matter of time before Spain will need a full bail-out.

However, economists looking at Spain’s borrowing needs, their crippled banking sector, and their ailing economy now believe the required bail-out would be more than the eurozone could manage.

Head of economic research at Open Europe, believe Spain will require around €650bn.

The situation may force Germany into finally deciding whether to work towards the break up of the eurozone, or the pooling of all the eurozone sovereign debt. The pooling of the debt would lead to a full economic union, and inevitably to much stronger political ties.  With Greece likely to require yet another bailout before the end of the year, and the fall out from the current situation nudging Italy ever closer to the economic death spiral, it is only a matter of time before Germany will have to make some very difficult choices. The question is will the people of Europe accept the outcome, whatever that may be?

Chick-fil-A Execs Death Caused by Bullying?

Donald Perry, Chick-fil-A’s vice president of corporate public relations, died last Friday.  He passed away from a heart attack.

Some are asking, did he die because of bullying from the gay lobby or liberal politicians looking to get in on the publicity.

Including the calls for boycotts and bans in this culture war, there has also been death threats.
