The Illegal Alien Solution is DEPORTATION

A Barack Obama Presidency

The Agenda/Mandate for Change/Dealing with Illegal Aliens

With the Ashley Todd racist hoax all but guaranteeing an Obama win in Pennsylvania, this Presidential Race is over, Barack Obama destined to be the next President of the United States of America. He has run an election centered around a message of change, has promised to make America once again a place where the average Main Street American gets a fair shake. There are promises on the table to Save Social Security, to lower taxes for 95 percent of Americans, and provide Health Care for all. As an American, as a Main Street American, I have been giving the subject of change much thought, and feel it imperative that Barack Obama the candidate bring change to America as our President that is CHANGE WE WANT, is change in the best interest of Main Street America, rather than in the best interest of ILLEGAL ALIENS.

Perhaps I am wrong, but much of the change we need must center on the subject of Illegal Aliens, those who provide them aid and comfort, those who hire them. The candidate Obama has made overtures to the Illegal Alien community through such racist and bigoted organizations as La Raza, and as America’s president, he must realize that Amnesty, that a pathway to citizenship for 15-25 Million Illegal Aliens IS UNACCEPTABLE. America’s lower and middle class have been wronged by Wall Street, by the National Chamber of Commerce, by our elected officials, and the time has come to restore justice, to return America to a nation of laws that protects its own citizens, rather than coddling to ILLEGAL ALIENS in the name of cheap wages for Corporate America.

Health Care and the uninsured…fact is, that half of those people in America who are uninsured are Illegal Aliens and their Anchor Babies. Repatriate these illegal alien criminals and their families back to their homelands, and we have reduced the number of uninsured in America by 50 percent without spending ONE THIN DIME. Further, because companies would have no choice but to compete for qualified LEGAL workers, wages and benefits for lower and middleclass Americans would go up across the board, thus seeing millions of those now uninsured getting medical coverage, or being able to afford it. The time of punishing America’s lower and middleclass in the name of a corporate agenda must come to an end, our politicians either representing the will of the majority, or being FORCED OUT OF OFFICE by any means necessary.

The candidate Obama has spoken about stagnant wages for America’s lower and middleclass workers on Main Street. The biggest contributor to stagnant wages is first and foremost illegal aliens followed in a close second by the H1 Visa program that must be mothballed for a period of at least ten years while America takes care of its own hurting and abused work force. Illegal Aliens reduce wages for the lower and middleclass by some $230 Billion dollars a year; have depressed the average American Family’s wages by over 7 percent. That figure raises to over 9 percent for the African American family, and the wages of young black men between 16 and 25 have seen their wages depressed by over 13 percent because of illegal aliens in the workforce. Couple this with companies like Microsoft using the H1 Visa program to lower wages by bringing in foreigners, rather than hiring American College Graduates, and we have an untenable situation wherein the root cause is a uncontrolled, unsecured Southern Border with Mexico, unchecked illegal immigration into America, coupled with a far too generous legal immigration program.

Though some might disagree, a huge contributing factor to the meltdown of the mortgage industry came about as a result of lending to those in America illegally. For those of us unfortunate enough to have tenements in our neighborhood where 20-40 illegal aliens, ignoring zoning rules and regulations, are all living under one roof, we are paying a tremendous price for our Federal Government’s refusal to ENFORCE OUR LAWS. Illegal aliens in our communities are bringing increased crime, deteriorating communities, and ever decreasing home values as a result of illegal aliens who disrespect our culture, our laws, who are infiltrating our communities, and trying to force their cultures on us against our will. Sorry, but we do not drive without licenses, we do not routinely park in the middle of the street, we do not play Latino music loud enough to be heard two blocks away, we do not routinely urinate out in public, against building walls, or onto the tires of whatever car happens to be conveniently parked. This is America, and we do not want to, nor should we have to drive down our streets and see Mexican flags flying from front porches where American Flags should wave. This is not racism, this is about demanding that OUR CULTURE be respected, that our rules be obeyed. If I want to experience the Mexican culture, I’ll attend a Mexican Festival here in America, or I’ll travel to Mexico. I do not feel it fair, or just for them to force their culture onto neighborhoods by force, through ill mannered ignorance and ignoring of our laws.

Oddly, or perhaps not, these complaints and angers are not expressed to or against those who have immigrated here LEGALLY. Those citizens (future citizens) want to embrace our American culture, they want too abide by and respect our laws. They as a whole strive to become a part of a community, rather than attempt to change it, and turn it into a mirror reflection of their home countries. Unfortunately, most of those here illegally have NO INTEREST in being Americans, have no interest in adopting to our culture, embracing our American way of life, learning to read, write and speak OUR ENGLISH LANGUAGE…all they are here for, is to work, even if their working means stealing jobs from Americans, lowering our wage bases, bringing down the quality of life that makes America the great land of opportunity that it is. How many illegal aliens are only here to earn enough money to go back to their home country with their spoils? Read former Mexican President Fox’s and current President Calderon’s desires for their citizens in America. They want their citizens to have the right to legal migrate north of the border as it suits them, have all rights of American Citizenship while here, then have the right to take their spoils, and go back to MOTHER MEXICO. Simply stated, illegal aliens ARE TAKERS, and it is time they be held fully and completely liable for their crimes.

We need America’s Legal Citizens and Legal Immigrants of every color, creed, nationality chanting in the streets of every major city, “DEPORTATION, DEPORTATION, DEPORTATION”, we need those who are here in America legally to demand enforcement of our immigration laws AS WRITTEN, rather than allowing special interest groups and the National Chamber of Commerce to cloud the issue, and push for AMNESTY under the guise of a Pathway to Citizenship. Illegal Aliens are CRIMINALS, they are not undocumented workers, not undocumented immigrants, they are by FEDERAL LAW and DEFINATION both Illegal Alien, and CRIMINAL. There is no debate, we do not need comprehensive Immigration Reform, but instead WE NEED OUR LAWS ENFORCED.

You may not like this Mr. Obama, but simply stated, we do not need these illegal aliens, nor do WE WANT THEM. They are not filling jobs Americans will not do, but instead are lowering the wage scales in certain industries to a point where we law abiding citizens cannot afford to do those jobs unless we want to live like illegal aliens do here in America and in their third world countries, where 20-40 family members all live under one roof in deplorable conditions…very much the way illegal aliens are living here in America, so that they can SAVE MONEY to send back home in the way of remittances. As our next President Mr. Obama, your job is to PROTECT AMERICAN CITIZENS, not kowtow to the likes of President Calderon of Mexico who has continued encouraging his nation’s citizens to violate our borders, encouraged his citizens to ROB AMERICA OF OUR RICHES and send them back to the Mexican Motherland. All illegal aliens are criminals, it just so happens that Latino nations, and specifically Mexico and their citizens are the biggest violators of our national sovereign borders. You cannot greatly reduce illegal immigration to America without targeting Mexico, without targeting the Latino Population of Mexico and other Latino nations who are ignoring our laws, who are encouraging their nation’s poor and illiterate to migrate to America.

It is time to STOP LYING to America’s lower and middleclass citizens. Illegal Aliens by LAW are illegal aliens. They are not undocumented workers; they are not undocumented immigrants…THEY ARE CRIMINALS. Those who aid and abet illegal aliens in staying in America (Catholic Church) are criminals. Those who hire illegal aliens are criminals. There is no discussion, there is no denying a very basic FACT…illegal aliens, those who aid and abet their being here, and those who hire them are CRIMINALS.

Is America about Fairness and Justice for all?

Either DEPORT all those here illegally, punish all those who are BREAKING OUR LAWS, or let us individually and collectively spiral down into Anarchy where it is every man, woman and child for themselves, where Americans have the right to pick up arms and strike back at those trying to steal our American Dream. We have no reason to respect law enforcement officers who ignore laws, who refuse to arrest criminals because BIG BUSINESS wants them to look the other way when they come into contact with those living and working in America illegally. If illegal aliens, if Corporate America, if the church can ignore the rule of law, can conduct and condone criminal behavior, then why can’t we? To hold us to one standard, to demand that we abide by the laws of our nation, while allowing 15-25 million illegal aliens to ignore our laws, steal our jobs, depress our wages, and destroy our neighborhoods can no longer be tolerated, and our government is either with us, or against us, Barack Obama is either with us as the next President of the United States, or he is against us…there can be no middle ground on this, there can be no negotiation, no Amnesty, no pathway to citizenship. The time to take sides is upon us, we either defend America and its citizens, or we side with those that believe in a lawless society where any thing you do to survive and get ahead is justified. The choice is our individually, and collectively, and it is this writes belief that the only intelligent choice, the only fair choice is to ENFORCE OUR LAWS as written. The time to end illegal immigration is upon us, and the quickest way to bring that into reality, is to send a clear message that those who hire illegal aliens, those who aid and abet them, and the illegal aliens themselves will be dealt with harshly, that the proverbial book WILL BE THROWN AT THEM when they are caught. Only through making examples of the lawless can we see our laws respected. Imprison illegal aliens for a few years before deporting them, jail a few Catholic Priests, seize the assets of a couple of companies, and watch how fast times change, watch how fast millions of illegal aliens will self deport themselves.

  • 51% of all Mexican illegal alien/immigrant households use at least one major welfare program and 28% use more than one program.

    40% use food assistance, 35% use Medicaid, 6% use cash assistance. Our Taxes being used to support ILLEGAL ALIENS, OUR TAXES USED TO SUBSIDIZE ILLEGAL ALIENS STEALING OUR JOBS!

  • 45% of all Latin American illegal alien/immigrant households use at least one welfare program and 24% use more than one program.

    – 32% use food assistance, 31% use Medicaid, 6% use cash assistance. Our taxes used to provide food and medical care to ILLEGAL ALIENS!

  • 20% of native households use at least one welfare program and 11% multiple programs.
    – 11% use food assistance, 15% use Medicaid, 5% use cash assistance.

  • Among Mexican and Latin American households, welfare use is somewhat higher for households headed by legal, as opposed to illegal, immigrants. Thus legalization will likely increase welfare costs still further.

  • 90% of Mexican and Latin American households have at least one worker. Their heavy welfare use reflects their low education levels and resulting low incomes – and not an unwillingness work.
    – 61% of all Mexican immigrants have not graduated high school.
    – 48% of all Latin American immigrants have not graduated high school.
    Simply stated, we have foreign lands sending us their most UNFIT and IGNORANT citizens...may sound harsh, but it is true.

  • There is a common but mistaken belief that welfare programs are only for those who don’t work. Actually, the welfare system is designed to provide low-wage workers, or more often their children, things like food assistance and health care. Which means we are being FORCED to support over FOUR MILLION ANCHOR BABIES, and to some degree their ILLEGAL ALIEN PARENTS!

  • It is the presence of their U.S.-born children coupled with their low education levels that explains why so many Latino illegal alien/immigrant households use the welfare system. Deporting all those here ILLEGALLY would eliminate most of these societal costs being dumped unfairly on the shoulders of Main Street Americans.

  • Most recently arrived immigrants are barred from using welfare programs and this would likely apply to those legalized by the Senate bill – however this is not true in every state, nor does not apply to all programs. Most important, the bar does not apply to the U.S.-born children of immigrants, who are immediately eligible. Which perhaps explains the HIGH BIRTH rate amoung the illegal alien population.

  • There are an estimated 1.4 million households headed by illegal aliens using at least one major welfare program. If even half these families returned to their home countries, the savings for taxpayers could be substantial. Deportation of ILLEGAL ALIENS is, simply stated, good for America and our lower and middle class citizens.

  • If we do not wish to make a large share of illegals return to their home countries, then the United States has to accept the welfare costs. There is no other option. READ THIS VERY CAREFULLY AMERICA!

  • Programs examined in the analysis are food stamps, WIC, school lunch, Medicaid, TANF, SSI, and public/rent-subsidized housing. IMAGINE THAT, we are evening helping PAY THEIR RENT!

    As We Reported, Ashley Todd LIED (RACIST BIGOT)

    As you can see by this newest picture, the B is gone, and we know that Ashley Todd is a bigoted, lying, racist bitch. Of course, we had reached that decision last night based on the evidence...which brings up some questions:

    1. Where is the NATIONAL APOLOGY from the McCain Campaign...this was/is one of his volunteers who deliberately tried to interfere with the Presidential Election in a toss up state.

    2. So far, Ashley Todd has been charged with filing a FALSE POLICE REPORT...hello, what she did went FAR BEYOND THAT, and I want to know what other charges can and should be brought against her.

    Not sure if others agree with me, but this repugnant, racist, bigoted Republican bitch spewed forth hate speech, wrongfully tried to incite racial hatreds to alter and/or change votes in a federal election, and the best we are seeing is a charge of filing a false police report?

    Where is FOX News with an apology? They had elevated this story to their front page, even though several of us in the blogging community labeled it from STEP ONE as a HOAX.

    I am DISGUSTED! Want my opinion...this woman should be PERMANENTLY TATTOOed with that B!

    More Reasons Why I Think Todd Ashley is Racist Lying Bitch

    If through some miraculous stroke of fate Todd Ashley was actually attacked in the manner that she claims, then I am sure all of us in the blogosphere who have doubted her story would send her our sympathies, but this racist attack/host on the Obama campaign in a must win state for John McCain is not adding up. Here are some more reasons to DOUBLE DOUBT the story, more reasons to call Todd Ashley a lying racist bitch.

    1. Wasn't she supposed to have been reinterviewed by the police yesterday afternoon? What happened with that interview, and for that matter, where is the BANK VIDEO? Has anyone even verified that she actually WITHDREW FUNDS?

    2. The whole chain of events is FAR TOO STAGGED...if you look at her blog and twitter, follow her normally pathetic Twitter and Blog writing style, or lack thereof, then look at how she is suddenly, and perfectly setting the stage for us. DAMN THE TRAFFIC...where was all this traffic a few minutes later when she GOT ROBBED AT KNIFE POINT? I'm looking for X Bank so I don't have to pay a service fee, but then she goes to a DIFFERENT BANK.

    3. Once word got out among her friends, don't you think everyone within the Republican Party would have been swamping her twitter with words of concern and sympathy? You don't see this, in fact you hardly see any sympathy, and you do not see Republicans coming out and PASSIONATELY defending her honor either.

    4. As is witnessed by her Twitter activity (thanks to those fast enough to take screen shots) we have her less than 24 hours later BACK AT THE PHONE BANKS at the local John McCain headquarters...WOW, WHAT A TROOPER! There she is, the sweet, innocent good little Christian, right leaning, conservative John McCain Supporting Republican volunteer who was attacked BY A BIG, BLACK, DRESSED IN BLACK, VISCIOUS, OBAMA SUPPORTING NEGRO MAN back at her DUTY STATION! Give us a BREAK! Read her twitter, she barely says anything other than I am OK, lets ALL FORGET THIS, and GET BACK TO WORK so we can win this one for John if to say, I did my part, lets hope it won us a few extra votes, maybe helps to turn this BLUE STATE RED.

    How stupid does this racist bitch think we are? Less than 24 hours ago she had been visciously ATTACKED. Robbed at knifepoint, then THROWN to the ground, KICKED AND PUNCHED repeatedly, then cruely BRANDED for months, if not LIFE, but she is BACK AT THE PHONES, on Twitter bucking up the troops! If the police actually reinterviewed her, she was back at work almost immediately after the police interview, showing almost NO EMOTION, not even TALKING on Twitter to her friends about the ordeal she had been through.

    First, I repeat a question I raised last night...this was an attack on a Presidential Candidates staff...where is the Sercret Service in this investigation, where is the FBI? Secondly, I'd like to hear from a criminal attorney...if, as we presume, Todd Ashley fabricated this whole racist story in an attempt to effect and upset in the toss up state of Pennsylvania, what local, state and federal laws has she broken....further, if as I suspect she has made all this up, does anyone out there think she ACTED COMPLETELY ALONE? Lastly...IF THIS STORY WAS/IS TRUE, how come it has not tsunamied onto the National/International News?

    Ashley Todd-Who Took The Picture?

    My second article on this subject, complete with some more stuff from various other bloggers on top of this story...I still say it is HOAX, and HOAX of a CRIMINAL NATURE. Who took the picture? I found one site that credits said picture to the Sarah's Army Blog...there goes that credibility? Has she SOUGHT Medical Attention, and if so, is the viscious knife created BRAND still there, is this woman horribly DISFIGURED as she CLAIMS? NOW FOLKS, ask yourself a very SERIOUS QUESTION...this was a Presidential Campaign Volunteer STAFFER...does not that one fact make this a Secret Service/FBI Case? Has the Secret Service interviewed this woman, documented her INJURIES?

    More Hope, Change and Mutilation...

    The McCain volunteer Ashley Todd, 20, of College Station, Texas, was robbed at an ATM then had the letter “B” carved on her face by her Obama-supporting robber.

    McCain has called the Ashley's family-- The attacker said the mugger was screaming about McCain when he beat her.

    WTAE Pittsburgh reported:

    A 20-year-old woman who was robbed at an ATM in Bloomfield was also maimed by her attacker, police said.

    Pittsburgh police spokeswoman Diane Richard tells Channel 4 Action News that the victim was robbed at knifepoint on Wednesday night outside of a Citizens Bank near Liberty Avenue and Pearl Street just before 9 p.m.

    Richard said the robber took $60 from the woman, then became angry when he saw a McCain bumper sticker on the victim's car. The attacker then punched and kicked the victim, before using the knife to scratch the letter "B" into her face, Richard said.

    Richard said the woman refused medical treatment after the assault, which happened outside the view of the bank's surveillance cameras.

    The robber is described as a dark-skinned black man, 6 feet 4 inches tall, 200 pounds with a medium build, short black hair and brown eyes. The man was wearing dark colored jeans, a black undershirt and black shoes.
    This is horrible news!
    Just horrible!

    MORE--- Pittsburgh KDKA is also reporting on the mutilation:

    Police are investigating after a local woman working at a campaign call center says she was attacked by a suspect who became enraged after seeing a McCain bumper sticker on her car, reports CBS station KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh.

    According to police, the 20-year-old woman said she was mugged at an ATM in the Bloomfield area around 9pm last night after leaving a Republican phone bank.
    The Pittsburgh-Tribune Review has more on the victim:

    Ashley Todd, 20, of College Station, Texas, was using an ATM at Liberty Avenue and Pearl Street in Bloomfield just before 9 p.m. Wednesday when a man approached her, put a knife to her throat and demanded $60, police said.

    Todd handed the man $60 she had in her pocket and stepped away from him, investigators said. The man then noticed the bumper sticker on the woman's car, which was parked in front of the ATM. The man became very angry, made comments to Todd about McCain and punched her in the back of the head, knocking her to the ground, police said.

    It IS Washington Scandal's Belief That Ashley Todd Is Lying

    A story that seems to be getting a small bit of play on the internet tonight involves one Ashley Todd, a phone bank volunteer for the McCain Campaign. She claims that a tall black Obama supporter attacked her, carved a B into her face, thus branding her! It is the belief of this blog after studying much of the STUFF out there, some of which we are sharing here, that Ashley Todd is lying. Further, if we are correct, she should be charged not only with the filing of a false police report, but also with deliberately interfering with the outcome of a Federal Election, and a hate crime.

    First, when you look at the photograph of her taken (supposedly) after the attack, it does not all add up when compared with her allegations. The B was supposedly CARVED OUT (emphasis added)...if you look at the picture, the B is first an foremost backwards...not something an attacker in a fit of RAGE is likely to do! Additionally, the B does not look carved fact, it almost appears to have been done with make up. We also magnified the upside down backward B, and could not find anything that looked like the B was carved out, etched or scratched in.

    Next, look at her BLACKEYE...again, it looks like it was done with make up. Notice two things of primary importance. Look at the eye itself...there is nothing wrong with it, no busted blood vessel, no red from bleeding in the eye itself, which is something you would expect to see if, as claimed she recieved the black eye because of repeated punches and kicks. Additionally, notice there is NO PUFFINESS, no SWELLING around this supposed BLACK EYE.

    Supposedly, the 6'4" assailant put a knife to her neck and took her money...OK, here is where it starts getting really weird. If as she claims this man's intent was to rob her, he would have robbed her by knife point and then left the scene very quickly. Ashley Todd instead claims HE SAW HER CAR, and the McCain Bumper Sticker on it. The man just robbed her in front of the ATM Machine, put a knife to her throat and grabbed her did he then see her Bumper Sticker, how did he know it was HER CAR? This whole part of the story makes no sense, and more importantly, the whole knife welding assailant does not matched the B on her face...a knife cuts, a knife deeply scratches, a knife causes bleeding which LEAVES a scab.

    Still, lets assume that this supposed assailant actually DID ATTACK Ashley CARVE that upside down and backward B, he would have had to have GRABBED her face/jaw and held it in place while he carved in his B...that in turn would have left BRUISES...if you look at the picture, there are no bruises.

    Further, the alleged attacker who conveniently is labeled as Black, as an Obama supporter, is located in a state that McCain HAS TO WIN by getting out a strong RED NECK VOTE, kicked and punched her BRUTALLY, yet she REFUSED ANY MEDICAL TREATMENT!

    Sorry, this whole thing STINKS to high heaven, and somethings do not add up...where is the bank surveillance video...oh, she was out of range of the convenient. The police FAILED to take pictures of her CONVENIENT. She refuses medical treatment after a VISCIOUS ASSAULT, and the police were FINE WITH THAT! Come on, who are we kidding here. If there was a police report, anyone want to bet that the officer WAS IN on this, just happens to be a good Red Blooded Republican John McCain stalwart?

    We then find out that she is not available to talk to the press, but might be available on Friday. Anyone care to place a wager on this story?

    McCain volunteer (Ashley Todd) attacked and mutilated in Pittsburgh

    A 20-year-old McCain/Palin supporter Ashley Todd was allegedly attacked by a 6 feet 4 inches dark-skinned black man in Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh last night. According to police reports, Todd was robbed at an ATM in suburban Pittsburgh.

    Todd was robbed at knifepoint and knocked down by a man who then carved a “B” on the right side of her face on Wednesday night outside of a Citizens Bank near Liberty Avenue and Pearl Street.

    What “B” was meant to symbolize with? Big, Bad, or Bar…?

    by Mike Baron

    Ashley Todd has been identified as the 20-year-old McCain/Palin supporter who was allegedly attacked in Pennsylvania last night.

    Todd was robbed at an ATM in Bloomfield and was also maimed by her attacker, apparently because of her political views, according to police.

    According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (By way of Pittsburgh Channel), Ashley Todd, of College Station, Texas, was at the cash machine just before 9 p.m. on Wednesday when a man approached her and put a knife to her throat.

    The Tribune reported that Todd, who is not familiar with the area, drove to a friend's house and called police.

    According to friends, she is in Pittsburgh volunteering for the McCain-Palin campaign.

    Pittsburgh police spokeswoman Diane Richard told Channel 4 Action News that the robber took $60 from the woman, then became upset when he saw a McCain bumper sticker on the victim's car.

    The McCain camp told CBS station KDKA-TV that the victim is a Republican from Texas.

    According to a campaign spokesperson, after seeing her bumper sticker supporting McCain, the suspect said, 'Oh you're with McCain, you're with the McCain campaign? I'm going to teach you a lesson.'"

    The attacker then proceeded to punch and kick the victim, before utilizing the knife to carve the letter "B" into her face, presumably for "Barack" Obama.

    The attack occurred outside the view of the bank's surveillance cameras and the unidentified victim refused medical treatment after the assault.

    In an official statement the McCain campaign says: "We're shaken up by this. It's sick and disgusting."

    Governor Sarah Palin reportedly spoke with the victim by phone.

    The Obama-Biden campaign released a statement, commenting on the attack. The statement said "Our thoughts and prayers are with the young woman for her to make a speedy recovery, and we hope that the person who perpetrated this crime is swiftly apprehended and brought to justice."

    The assailant is still at large. Police tell that all they have is a description.

    The assailant is described as a dark-skinned black man, 6 feet 4 inches tall, 200 pounds with a medium build, short black hair and brown eyes. He was wearing dark colored jeans, a black undershirt and black shoes.

    TMZ has a larger version of the photo above. They also have a report detailing on how the authenticity of the story has come into question. Video is also available below.

    "Politically Motivated" Mutilation - Real or Hoax?

    Ashley ToddPittsburgh law enforcement sources tell TMZ they have serious questions about the authenticity of the alleged victim who says she had her face cut by a politically-motivated attacker.

    We're told there are several things about the alleged attack that don't add up. A Pittsburgh PD official says they are conducting a "thorough investigation" and have not determined if the alleged attack is real or a hoax. But we're told there is definitely a level of skepticism.

    As we reported, the alleged victim claims she went to an ATM and when she turned around, a large dark-skinned man took the money she withdrew. She says when he noticed she had a McCain/Palin bumper sticker on her car, he became enraged, knocked her down and cut a "B" in her face.

    We're told the woman refused medical assistance at the scene and said she would go to the hospital the next day.

    McCain Worker: Attacker Angered By GOP Sticker

    Update: Click here for the latest on this story.

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) ― Pittsburgh police are investigating after a volunteer for the Republican campaign says she was attacked by a mugger who became enraged after seeing a John McCain bumper sticker on her car last night.

    According to police, Ashley Todd, 20, said she was robbed at an ATM at the corner of Liberty Avenue and Pearl Street in the Bloomfield area around 9 p.m. Wednesday after leaving a Republican phone bank.

    Todd told police that the suspect, described only as a dark-skinned African-American man about 6'4", stole $60 from her and became enraged after seeing a bumper sticker supporting Republican Presidential Candidate John McCain on her car.

    Todd, who is from Texas, said the suspect put a knife to her neck and demanded money.

    Todd told police that the man became very angry after noticing the McCain sticker on her car and began punching and kicking her.

    After repeatedly hitting, kicking and threatening her, Todd told police that the man carved a "B" in her cheek.

    According to the police report, the officer confirmed that he "observed the wound on the right side of [her] face.

    Todd declined immediate medical attention last night but said she would go to the hospital today.

    The suspect ran off after the attack; but police are hoping that footage from bank surveillance camera may help lead them to the suspect.

    In an official statement the McCain campaign says: "We're shaken up by this. It's sick and disgusting."

    Governor Sarah Palin reportedly spoke with the victim by phone.

    Meanwhile, late this afternoon, the Obama-Biden campaign released a statement, saying: "This is a horrendous act of violence. Our thoughts and prayers are with the young woman for her to make a speedy recovery, and we hope that the person who perpetrated this crime is swiftly apprehended and brought to justice."

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) ― She calls it a political attack -- a McCain campaign volunteer says she was attacked in Bloomfield.

    Ashley Todd, 20, claims it all happened because she supports Sen. John McCain in the presidential race.

    Todd claims she was robbed at knife point then roughed up.

    Patrick Graham, the president of College Republicans in Pittsburgh, told KDKA that Todd works for the National College Republican Committee.

    She's been in Pittsburgh about a week.

    Graham said Todd was on her way to meeting, when she reported robbery and assault took place.

    "It's a disgusting act of violence," said Graham, "almost like a hate crime, because she was basically attacked because solely because of her political belief, and no other reason."

    Todd is a 20-year old Texas woman, a volunteer for the McCain-Palin campaign, who told police she was robbed and attacked by a man in Bloomfield.

    A police report states that Todd said the incident occurred around 9 p.m. Wednesday night near an ATM.

    Todd said she made her ATM withdrawal and was approached from behind by a man who put a knife to her neck and demanded money.

    She said she gave him $60 and managed to step away from the robber.

    But, then Todd claimed the mugger spotted a McCain sticker on her car, and became angry.

    She said she was punched in the back of the head, knocked to the ground and the man etched the letter "b" on the right side of her face.

    Among other things, police are checking security cameras in the neighborhood to see what, if anything, they may have recorded.

    A photo obtained by the Drudge Report website showed Todd after the alleged assault.

    However, we could not verify the authenticity of the photo.

    Pittsburgh Police did not take a photo of the woman.

    The McCain-Palin campaign released a statement that said, in part, they were shaken up by the incident – calling it sick and disgusting.

    A spokesman confirmed both McCain and Palin called Todd to express their concern.

    An Obama-Biden campaign statement said: "Our thoughts and prayers are with the young woman, for her to make a speedy recover... and we hope that the person who perpetrated this crime is swiftly apprehended, and brought to justice."

    Todd said she wasn't ready yet to talk publicly about what happened but she may have something to say on Friday.

    Thursday, October 23, 2008 at 03:26PM CDT


    I lay this at the feet of the mainstream media. For weeks they have cooked up tales about Republican verbal violence. They let Barack Obama get away with claiming someone called for killing him at a Sarah Palin rally -- an outright lie that the media let get by.

    This morning, Jim Galloway, a friend in Georgia and reporter at the AJC, put up a post at the AJC Political Insider blog about a campaign staffer to a local Republican state senator. The staffer was worried about violence on election night. Left wing bloggers blew this up into a big deal because the kid used his campaign account. Naturally, this must be a Republican Senator whipping up hostility. Never mind that the Republican Senator in question is out of the country.

    But Jim, in his report, went on to write, "Speaking of reining in some out-of-bounds behavior, take a look at the YouTube clip below, showing a Oct. 21 confrontation with Barack Obama supporters at a Sarah Palin rally in Nevada.

    "In the video, Palin supporters shout, “Vote McCain not Barack Hussein, Vote McCain not Barack Hussein.”

    Now there is nothing per se wrong about Jim writing that. It is perfectly acceptable and a fact that this happened. But the media narrative has become one that highlights the hostile words of Republicans and downplays the hostile acts of Obama supporters. And note that these were Obama supporters disrupting a Palin rally. What gets flagged is the Palin supporters' response.

    Words versus actions. How many news outlets have covered the Obama supporters trying to block Sarah Palin's motorcade? How many news outlets covered the vandalism of Senator Norm Coleman's property? Compare that to how many covered the words spoken at a Palin rally that allegedly foment hostility toward Barack Obama.

    Today there is a new, more violent twist. A McCain supporter, a 20 year old college Republican volunteer, was savagely attacked by a Barack Obama supporter in Pennsylvania. She was at an ATM getting money. He saw the McCain sticker on her car, robbed her, and carved a "B" into the side of her face.

    He carved her face like it was a pumpkin
    Picture here

    But someone yelled "kill him" at a Sarah Palin rally in reference to Bill Ayers.

    UPDATED: Josh points out in RedHot that Obama did tell his supporters to get in people's faces. Hey! The dude was just doing what The One asked him to. Full pardon on January 21st [Ed. -- This means we cannot just blame the media. We must blame Obama too. "This is not the thug I knew. I've known some, but not this one. The thugs I know kill police and blow up government buildings."]

    UPDATE 2: Note how Memeorandum covers this story. Nothing political here. No political implications. Just a random act of violence.

    Stop The John McCain Robo Calls...or At Least Have Some Revenge

    OK, I finally got tired of the Robo Calls, and decided to take matters into my own hand and have some fun at John McCain's expense! You might enjoy turning the table yourselves. When you get a Robo Call from John McCain, pick up the phone and call several of his local Campaign Headquarter Offices. When the person answers, tell them you are calling as a concerned citizen, are worried about their emotional well being. Ask them if they need to speak to someone about the emotional turmoil of having to work for John McCain when he has already lost the election! The reactions are PRICELESS!

    Sarah Palin's Wardrobe...John McCain Just Does Not Get It

    John McCain lost his temper with reporters today, got angry that everyone wanted to ask questions about Sarah Palin's wardrobe...he fumed that the Press was treated her differently, wanted to know about her wardrobe because she is a, we are interested in and upset about her wardrobe because the National Republican Committee spent over $150,000 on her wardrobe. It's about the fact that the National Republican Committee spent another $6,000 buying Todd Palin top shelf suits. We are interested, because this kind of a Palin's Gone Wild shopping spree runs completely contrary to the Joe The Plumber gimmick you have been trying to run with now for a week.

    On other news...the Presidential Race is over! The fat lady has sung, and every poll that counts had John McCain down for the count in a TKO. Want proof...quietly McCain has pulled commercials, reduced spending in New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Colorado! The major networks know this, but are trying to keep us interested and on edge through Election Night...forget it....the only thing to watch come Election Night is the Democratic run at 60 Senate seats.

    Is Sarah Palin Hiding Herpes? Make your Health Records Public

    Yesterday Sarah Palin FUDGED on the issue of releasing her Health Records, speaking like she would, then suddenly dashing hopes by saying, "...IF THEY ARE RELEASED". This got me to wondering what could be so devastating to Sarah Palin that she would risk scorn and contempt rather than make records public that everyone else in this Presidential Campaign has.

    We all know she is a bit WHACKED in the head, could easily play the part of a dumb blond, so surely she would care less if some special needs mental/emotional counseling were in her past. With five kids, there is a good chance she has had a tummy tuck, and maybe some serious liposuction, but again that would not keep her health records private. However, what if the mother of a child carrying a bastard child, the woman who holds herself up as the pillar of upright, conservative Pentacostal Christian values has a SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASE, is hiding her INNER SLUT? Further, what if SHE HAS HERPES, but Todd does not...where did she get said HERPES, could it be that rumored affair we have heard about with Todd's business partner? So many questions, and all could be put to rest if she were to RELEASE HER RECORDS.

    The only other thing she could be hiding that could be far worse, would be bruises and injuries that suggest Todd beats or has beaten her in the past. So come on Sarah you can see, our imaginations are probably far worse than anything that might be lurking in those records.

    Before and After $150,000 Shopping Spree

    Here is a mock up of the Before and After Caribou Barbie! From fat ass ed Alaskan Hockey Mom (check out that Pink Number) to HOTTIE Vice Presidential Candidate...and to think, they do these make overs on TV for FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS! $150,000 sure can buy a LOT of pretty...reminds me of Oprah's shows where she loses 60 pounds with the help of a personal trainer, a personal chef, a personal masseur, and a personal wardrobe assistant. Did Sarah Palin pray to God for those new digs?

    Scooping So Called Newscasters Like Rick Sanchez

    One of my primary gripes in life, is stations claiming they are 24 hour a day news sources, when in reality they do nothing more than put up reruns for 22 hours a has gotten so bad, that the Anderson Cooper's of the world pretend they are doing an exclusive interview with someone that delivered the same CANNED answers to another CNN reporter a few hours earlier.

    One reporter that GRATES my ass is Rick about someone that does not deserve their own show. I find his whole in your face support of Illegal Aliens repugnant, and do not appreciate him trying to make at least one hour of CNN News bilingual hour. This is America...if you cannot learn to read, write and speak English, you do not belong here, and we do not need the likes of Rick Sanchez trying to force feed us Spanish for an hour a day, do not need his breaking into Spanish Stations to bring us breaking news that he interprets for us.

    Further, not overly fond of this man's FAKE he did this breaking news story about gunmen at Western Kentucky University, showa us (supposedly) the CNN chopper in the air RACING TOWARDS the University. High DRAMA, Rick Sanchez ahead of the curve on a FAST BREAKING STORY...not exactly. I picked up the phone, made a couple calls onto Campus and got the skinny on the story that Rich Sanchey was blowing up far bigger than it was! I sent him a Twitter with the link to my site that gave him the answers he was wanting...funny how the story SUDDENLY DIED, his CHOPPER in the air vanishing into the mists. His supposed LIVE VIEWER COMMENTS...give us a break, you can see his crew up on Twitter hours ahead BEGGING us to get our streams into him...what is FRESH about that?

    So my we as bloggers have a duty to SCOOP news reporters to keep them at least a little honest? Should we race to get ahead of the curve so we can break the story, show America it's not as BIG as certain news reporters would have us believe? By the way, too bring closure to the Western Kentucky University Story, here is their latest Press Release:

    Western Kentucky University...Gunman On Loose?

    Seems to be a security problem at Western Kentucky University...initial reports on CNN suggest a gunman could be on the loose.

    ***** LATEST UPDATE 3:49 Eastern*****
    According to our sources, the LOCK DOWN has been lifted! Classes have been cancelled for the day.

    Campus is in LOCK DOWN!

    BREAKING NEWS UPDATE....From Bob Tripper who is on Campus:

    Unconfirmed report of shots fired, a press release expected soon. He has been advised to remain inside until the coast is clear signal is given...which would tend to support Rick Sanchez's reports on CNN, though Bob refused to confirm or deny that a Police Tactical Unit was on campus, or that they were looking for multi armed men.

    On protection of students...I did speak to one student on campus randomly...they were NOT AWARE of any of this.


    Bob Adams with Student Publications did verify the lockdown.

    Janice Diehm verified that:

    1. The lockdown has just been lifted.

    2. That classes have been cancelled for the day.

    Not verified, but passed along:

    1. Campus waffling on gun usage, but local Police verified guns were involved.

    2. Armed men were reported on the South Campus...home of their two year college.

    Text Message went out on system wide Campus computer at 12:30.

    Email Warning Message went out at 12:47.

    There is a situation on the south campus involving guns. Police are on
    the scene. Everyone should stay clear of the area until further notice.

    Widening Journey BOYCOTT to Include ALL Genesco BRANDS!

    Just got off the phone with one Claire S. McGill who is Genesco Corporation's Media Contact. First, she promised to mail out their company Press Release to me immediately, and it is extremely light on content and substance considering teh severity of the situation. More importantly, she FLAT OUT REFUSED to answer a straight forward question that I put to her:

    "Are your cash registers used at stores such as Journey PRE-PROGRAMMED before being shipped to the stores?" I asked this question three times, and three times she said she would not answer, had NO COMMENT. Seems a fairly straight forward question that goes to the HEART of the reciept that was printed out with a RACIAL SLUR! You see, it has been alleged that the Racial Slur was one of several choices pre-programmed into the machine. If that statement is true, simply terminating an employee stupid enough to select the racial slur to identify the customer is not really the issue.

    IN BREAKING NEWS UPDATE...This story is being picked up Nationally by ABC!
    Journeys store gave receipt to a Missouri man that read "dumb N-word."

    It is therefore suggested that the Boycott of JOURNEYS be expanded to include ALL Genesco Brands:

    Journey's Inadequate Corporate Statement:

    "While we are continuing to investigate this incident, it now appears that an employee in one of our stores entered highly inappropriate statements in a form used to process a merchandise return. Needless to say, such an act was not authorized by Journeys, and will not be tolerated. This employee has been terminated.

    At Journeys, we pride ourselves on valuing and respecting every customer. We are shocked and sickened that a former associate could be responsible for an act so out of keeping with our culture and our values. We profoundly regret this incident."
