Border War Turns Violent – Great report!

Hat Tip: Brian B.

From: LiveLeak

This report illustrates what bald faced liars fellow CFR hacks Janet Napolitano and Barack Hussein Obama are when it comes to border security. Crime and violence is flowing over the Mexican border into Texas (as well as Arizona, New Mexico, and California) and the traitorous NWO puppets in Washington continue to do absolutely nothing….. except to try cramming another nation-wrecking amnesty down More.. the throats of angry Americans who have had just about enough of Obama and his band of destructive Saul Alinsky fans in DC.

Angle Campaign Releases First Web Ad of General Election

Blasts Reid for throwing mud instead of offering solutions

Reno, NV – U.S. Senatorial candidate Sharron Angle released her first web ad of the general election today. The ad introduces Angle to the voters of Nevada, and takes Harry Reid to task for his disastrous tenure as Majority Leader and his campaign’s vicious attacks.

“At a time when America is dealing with pressing problems — sky-rocketing unemployment, ballooning national debt, a catastrophic oil spill, and potential nuclear threats abroad — Harry Reid is spending his time launching dishonest personal attacks against Sharron Angle to save his job rather than offer real solutions. It is obvious that Harry Reid has already run out of reasons for voters to support him and therefore has chosen a course of trying to destroy his opponent,” said Angle Senior Adviser John Yob. “Nevada families are tired of the same old politics that has led them to the highest unemployment rate in the nation. Sharron Angle is ready to go to the Senate and fight for Nevadans against the special interests of Harry Reid and Washington D.C.”

Voiceover transcript:

Unemployment has skyrocketed. Billions in bailouts to Wall Street millionaires with little to show for it. The national debt reaching critical mass. Iran close to going nuclear. The Gulf Coast submerged in oil. And the Majority Leader of the Senate moves quickly into action — not with solutions, but by attacking his opponent.

Within hours of Sharron Angle becoming the nominee to face Reid in November, Reid launched a brutal advertising assault that is a slap in the face to all Americans. Not only is Reid not offering solutions to our problems, he’s using special interest money to throw mud and try to tear down his opponent. America deserves better.

If you care more about sound ideas than negative sound bites, if you think it’s time to end the bailouts, end the power of the special interests, and, above all, take back the America we love, then please visit SharronAngle.com and contribute today — and do it before Harry Reid attacks again.

Nevada’s Unemployment Rate Jumped To 14 Percent In May 2010, Surpassing Michigan As The Highest State Unemployment Rate In The Nation. “Nevada’s unemployment rate hit yet another record in May, jumping to 14 percent. That’s up from 13.7 percent in April. Nevada’s jobless rate is now tops in the nation, as former No. 1 Michigan saw its unemployment slip to 13.6 percent in May, down from 14 percent in April. Nevada’s increase comes even as the recession is moderating nationally. The country’s unemployment rate ticked down from April to May, dropping from 9.9 percent to 9.7 percent.” (Jennifer Robison, “Nevada’s Unemployment Rate Tops In Nation,” Las Vegas Review Journal, 6/18/10)

Reid Voted For The TARP Package That Would Use Up To $700 Billion In Installments To Bailout Toxic Assets From Troubled Banks. (H.R. 1424, CQ Vote #213; Adopted 74 – 25; R 34-15; D 39-9; I 1-1, 10/1/08, Reid Voted Yay)

In January 2010, The Watchdog In Charge Of Monitoring TARP Said The Program Has Failed To Boost Bank Lending As Well As Halt The Spread Of Foreclosures. “The watchdog charged with monitoring the government’s $700 billion bailout unleashed one of his harshest criticisms of the program to date, questioning its overall effectiveness. In his latest quarterly report to Congress, special inspector general Neil Barofsky said that the Troubled Asset Relief Program, or TARP, has failed to boost bank lending as well as halt the spread of foreclosures — two key aims of the sprawling program.” (David Ellis, “Bailout Cop: TARP’s Not Working,” CNN Money, 1/31/10)

In March, The CIA Announced That Iran Was Poised To Begin Producing Nuclear Weapons. “Iran is poised to begin producing nuclear weapons after its uranium program expansion in 2009, even though it has had problems with thousands of its centrifuges, according to a newly released CIA report. ‘Iran continues to develop a range of capabilities that could be applied to producing nuclear weapons, if a decision is made to do so,’ the annual report to Congress states. A U.S. official involved in countering weapons proliferation said the Iranians are ‘keeping the door open to the possibility of building a nuclear weapon.’” (Bill Gertz, “CIA: Iran Capable Of Producing Nukes,” Washington Times, 3/30/10)

Reid Launched An Attack Ad On Angle Shortly After Her Primary Victory. “Well, the positive ads from the majority leader didn’t last long. Here’s the first negative ad of the general election.” (Jon Ralston, “Reid Goes Negative On Angle, With Some Of Her Greatest Hits,” Las Vegas Sun’s Ralston’s Flash, 6/11/10)
