Michele Bachmann files presidential race paperwork

Thumbnail image for bachmannwashington.jpg
Bachmann is running for president.
Rep. Michele Bachmann used the Republican debate on CNN tonight to announce that she's filed official paperwork to run for White House in 2012.

That's the last official step any presidential candidate must take before officially jumping into the ring. But in the Bachmann told the TV audience she still expected to make an official declaration later this month.

Her announcement was part of a carefully orchestrated PR campaign. Besides announcing the news on CNN, she posted a video on YouTube, teased it through Facebook, launched a re-branded michelebachmann.com website now says "Bachmann for President," and kicked out an e-mail to supporters under the subject line, "I'm in."

All of this makes her promised announcement in Waterloo, Iowa, later this month an anticlimax. And it leaves the future of her congressional seat in the sixth district up in the air.

Here's the video announcement.

One more source of info on Bush's "vacations" and "trips"During 2 terms as President, Bush spent all or of part of 487 days at Camp David, on retreats and made 77 trips to his Crawford Ranch, in Texas, where he spent all or part of 490 days, on his Ranch. The total number of days of vacation or retreat President Bush took, while in office over a period of 8 years was 977 days, or 32% of his total time in office, was spent on vacations or retreatsRead more: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_... away from the White House.

and now the head of the ATF is going to resign. The Obama administration needs to come clean because the Obama administration broke the law which lead to the death of a US Border agent. Who in the administration and justice department OK the operation to sell guns to narco terrorists in Mexico to have a reason to restrict our 2nd admendment. Obama needs to either come clean or resign because he is a murderer!

I can't wait until Michele exposes this story next week

One coincidence? Two coincidences?

NO COINCIDENCE

 

ALL THE NEWS AND ALL THE HEADLINES ARE BEING CREATED BY THEFEDS TO COVER UP THIS STORY

 

THE NEW WORLD ORDER PLAYBOOK EXPOSED

 

Scam artists (Al-Qaeda) have cornered the market onaffiliate marketing education. Their sites use aliases, bogus whois info, andregistrations in different states and countries. What are they hiding?

 

Many get rich quick scams serve as product placement for newcutting edge internet technologies, and logos, some sold through Clickbank. Thepeople appearing in testimonials are part of the expansion of this organizationand are often pitching other high priced products and services. They all linkto one another through their marketing strategies and ability to optimize insearch rankings.

 

Between the aliases the use, and the way in which they speakabout things, everything they do has double meaning. Their faces in Googleimage search is similar to the picture book of symbols mentioned in The DaVinci Code movie. Here is a code of look a likes pitching all sorts of stuffwho are interconnected;

 

Selling a program on making millions online is ProfessorJames Bradley who looks like the Pentagon bomber Bill Ayers.

 

Jay Conrad Levinson is behind a number of “guerilla”marketing and advertising books. He looks like George Soros, who’s last name isa (palin)drome. Soros has been credited for collapsing a number of nation’scurrencies. George Soros has been quoted several times regarding his views on aNew World Order.

 

The Super Affiliate Handbook is sold by someone who lookslike Jill Biden, her name is Rosalind Gardner. Some appear to represent people,more in how they pose, rather then a direct look alike. Stephen Pierce appearsto represent radical Van Jones, Brett McFall-Austan Goolsbee, JohnChilders-Andy Stern, and Jay Abraham as Ayman al-Zawahri, just to name a few.

 

Problem with your Google Adwords PPC ads and can’t get astraight answer? You could try Yanik Silver who looks a lot like Sergei Brin,but he probably won’t know. He sells 33 Days to Online Profits (prophets.) Whynot try Perry Marshall, who looks like Obama’s priest Reverend Pfleger? Hesells The Definitive Guide To Google Adwords, infringing upon Google’strademark.

 

Many more can be found at Lorrie Morgan Ferrero’sRed-Hot-Copy blog such as; 72 Virgin Records Richard Branson, & White HouseParty Crashers the Salahi’s with Valerie Jarrett’s daughter.

 

The Rich Jerk sent out emails promoting Stompernet in Atlanta Georgia.The staff included Brad Fallon, an airline pilot, and Eben Pagan selling aseminar "Get Altitude". 3 days after reporting this code to the FBI,Delta in Atlantacanceled a large number of flights due to “safety reasons.” In the Youtubevideos related to the Rich Jerk, it appears that Mark Cuban is the Rich Jerk.He’s the billionaire who owns the Dallas Maverick’s basketball team. ThinkO'bomber or Barrac-uda Palin would play for him? Another guy seen on Youtubeclaiming to be Robert Johnson Rich Jerk, is Tony Rezko.

 

Obama announced his run for office on Oprah Winfrey’s show.Have you ever noticed that Oprah’s friend Gayle King looks like WhitneyHouston? Her name could be a code, Whit_ney White-Hous_ton House?

 

It appears the internet marketing experts controlled thecomments, the headlines, and the finance of the last election online with thehighest ranking site in Google search, Youtube.

 

In my strongest opinion this is the last piece of thepuzzle, Osama Bin Laden is also a spokesperson, and a look-a-like. Osamarepresents Obama/Biden (Bi)n La(den.)

 

Here are wanted terrorists and their online aliases. Theyare working with Al-Qaeda to overthrow the nation and collapse our economy.Some are wanted for U.S.embassy bombings in Kenya& Indonesia.Do these two places ring any bells?

Dear Michele Bachmann, One thing to know, Fox News released a News Story about a small Town in Alabama, the County or City Government Officials filed Bankruptcy in order not to pay that retirement pension due to them and at the same time spent over $90,000 dollars to spruce up their Web site and office.As President Of The United States of America, what are you going to do for them People of Alabama? Its a tough one I know, but not one of any members of Government stepped in to help, this will, and I will do my best to bring you the eyes of 30,Million voters, that this Government System has forgotten. You tell the American People you are with them while on TV, but do you understand what it means to be As One with The People ? A concept that has been lost in God and Country.sin., Henry Massingale

MN Voter First of all, you started this.  You piped in on a comment I made about Kirk The Conservative Jerk ( who remains a total douche).  Do you remember that?  You made assumptions and insinuations in your comment.  Do you remember that? You called me a useless prick or weiner.  Do you remember that?  You said I blame rich people for my problems, insinuating that I am poor and have problems.  Do you remember that?  You claim I am on the "public dole".  Remember that?  So who is attacking whom here? I don't need you to endorse my charitable activities.I could care less that you were once a Democrat.  Party allegience (whichever you choose) is for suckers. (By the way, this belief makes it impossible for me to be an idealogue...one of your accusations)I too have native ancestors...I only hope mine are not related to yours.You touch AIDS patients?  Really?  What a blessing.  Was this before or after you healed the ten lepers?Yes, I would like you to name each of your minority friends.  First and Last names.I am not impressed by your familial ties to Skip Humphrey...for many reasons. I do know what a Mufti is.Salwa al Mutairi was a candidate for Kuwaiti Parliament.  Does this mean that the President supports her? This is a loose association at best.  Nice try.

Jonathan "The Impaler" Sharkey was a candidate for Governor of MN.  You live in Minnesota...you must be a vampire.  Loose associations presented as fact are a joke.  What's your fucking point? If you were paying attention, I answered your question about the shovel ready jobs.  I simply don't know what tickles the Presiden'ts sense of humor or the context in which he was laughing.  I don't know the man.  In fact, there is really no way to really know whether or not the President thinks unemployment is funny.  He might...I doubt it...but he might.  I also suspect he doesn't like slavery.  Good question, though. I think one of the real questions we should all be asking when it comes to jobs (shovel-ready or not) is whether or not we should expect the goverment to create those jobs.  Do they really have that ability?  And how does that fit into the "small government" mantra of all of the conservative, evangelical and Tea Party pukes?  At best the government might be able to contribute to an environment that is hospitable for job creation, but the only way a job is created is when there is a demand for labor...which I don't think government can do without expanding government. You completely misunderstood my Chinese example..try again and see if you can figure it out. I was educated right here in Minnesota too...at public schools, no less.  What are the graduation rates of the groups you describe?  Since you're such a great ambassador to the minority communities (with all of  your multicultural friends and all) maybe you could assist with this. Check out the bureau of labor statistics and discover for yourself whether or not there is a correlation between education and unemployment rates.   And you're right...I should cease with the name-calling.  You are clearly above that and you deserve better.  Useless, dim-whitted (sic), pig-headed, idealogue pricks (or weiners) like me sometimes have a tendency to lower the bar when it comes to anonymous conversations via the internet. 

And, by the way, I didn't attack you for your questions.  I responded to you budding into my conversation and attacking me to begin with. Do you remember that?  And I actually answered your question.  Maybe you should spend less time giving me sermons on morality and more time helping your children tidy up their resumes and setting a good example. 

Does this about cover it?  Or do you need to go out to your usual blogs to pick up some more talking points?

JWW: .Your personal attacks are comical and frightening. Your smug arrogance is scary!  You talk about feeding the poor in your neighborhood like I have attacked that. In my lifetime, I’ve volunteered over 20,000 hours, am listed at Mary’s Place, the Union Gospel food shelve and many other charities as a regular contributor for many years.  Your insinuations are stupid.  I’m glad you have a good job, donate your time and resources to the poor. I fully endorse that. As for Dayton, he wants to take my resources and then tell me it is for charity. Give me a break! It will be painful for you to learn that I was a democrat. My Uncle went to Washington DC with Humphrey. I supported Skip in his efforts to gain office. My brother was the Sheriff of a large county - elected as a democrat. The party has left me! You insinuate that I’m afraid of gay people or black people: You fool, I have native blood running through my veins and I can name many minority people who are actual friends. Can you? I work in the medical field and touch many Aid’s patients. I'v feed thousands of hungry people in my lifetime. I do not need to defend my support of all people to the likes of you.I asked a simple question: why does Obama make a joke about not having “Shovel Ready Jobs” when he passed the stimulus. Is he now admitting he lied when he told the American people he had jobs? Does Obama think it is funny that 14,000,000 Americans do NOT have Jobs? Do you?  I’ve been to China multiple times. Sure they are trying to catch us, but the vast majority of Chinese are still peasants. The Chinese government moved millions out of their homes to create hydro-dams that are destroying the environment. Dozens of villages were put under the water. They allow pesticides into the food supply.  There is no freedom of the press or people. Is that what you want?Right now, young American adults aged 18-29 with only a high school degree – 40% don’t have a job. 43% of the Hispanic-American young adults don’t have a job. 50% of Black Americans of this group don’t have a job. You can attack me, about my 3 kids but they were educated right here in Minnesota. One graduated from the University of Minnesota. Your flippant ignorance is shameful. Your lack of understanding shows that you are a pigheaded ideologue. Go ahead: attack and despise me for my questions but understand it is your ignorance that is on display. Right now the Obama administration is supporting people in the Middle East who want to round up gays and stone them. The people Obama is backing want to re-institute slavery. Check out google “Salwa al Mutairi, former parliamentary candidate who said “sex slaves should be legal and prisoners from war-torn countries would make suitable concubines.”  Is Obama for slavery? This is reported to be the position of the muftis.  Do you even know what a muftis is? I suppose you thought calling the raid to kill Bin Laden “Geronimo” was perfectly acceptable? I hear and see things the Obama administration does and if concerns me. For that you attack me?

Where do you get these "facts"  It appears as if Obama is never in Washington.  (Except when throwing parties)  Bush rarlly went on any foreign vacations, golfing, baseball games, etc after engaging in foreign wars.How many basketball games has obama been to?how many baseball games?how many parties?

Obama has went on 73 golf outings and counting.The disaster in japan and the mid east is on fire and obama goes golfing and campaigning. Where is the outrage?  Parts of the country destroyed by natural disasters, he goes campaigning in Poerto Rico and to his personal fundraiser?  People suffering everywhere in America.  Self centered dick Obama, raises money for himself.   Oh the leadership!

Oh I get!You took the totals of 3 Republican presidents in comparison to 2 democrat presidents.And with Obama, you listed 3 Republican presidents in comparison to just Obama'[s vacations.How many of you fell for that trick?

Here peopleGo to politico and search: Bush - golfSee the outrage?compare the numbers  (obama 73)

Um Bush was the one who put forth the plan to bailout the auto industry.Liberals even put together a youtube video saying Bush ask congress to give auto industry 17.4 billion, as a campaign smear towards Republicans in 2008."bad bush, giving money to greedy corporations"  Do you guys remember yesterday?Love it. Damn you guys are brainwashed!

Bush conquered Iraq's Sadamm who had the 4th largest standing army in the world. This laid the ground work for the seals getting Bin Laden, not too hard to say go get em! This also laid the ground work for the cry of freedom in the middle east. Obama has raised the ante in Afghanistan where more americans have died since he was President than under Bush. Now Obama has us in Libya and Yemen. Where are the peace activists, where are the DFL lawyers crying about our rights and a war mongering President. I will be glad to join them in protest.

Obama saved the union jobs at GM and Chrysler was sold to the French! Ford was just fine without any action by Obama. The auto industry in the US would have survived and thrived with GM filing bankruptcy.

A doctor I know delivered over 1,000 babies, another did as many heart surgery's. Another doctor has helped perform over 1,000,000 AID tests from Africa. All of this done with Obama's health care as these Doctors are now getting out of the business of medicine. mmm! Obama is a FAILURE!

Actually, universal health care was not passed.  Obama wouldn't even let the topic come up and even denigrated it.

He also has failed to dismantle the Bush power-grabs as he promised—worse, he's embraced and expanded them and made the *least* transparent government ever.

Obama is a Republican; the current crop of Republicans are simply xenophobic fascists.  In other words, it's back to voting  "lesser of two evils" for me.  Or just not showing up.

Kirk:

Your message was

"All she need to say is:"Hope and change"  and the brainless faint!Oh wait, that was obama"

My response to your message was "You should change your name to 'Kirk the Dim-Witted Douche"'"

Your comments (like all of your comments) make you sound like a dim-witted douche. 

MN Voter:

Most of your comment is indecipherable.  But I do think it is hilarious how desperate both you and Kirk are to pigeon-hole people like me.  It must be so painful for you to learn that I am not a Democrat.  I'm also not afraid of gay people or black people....which has to bother you.  And blaming you "rich" people for my problems?  Who says I have a problem?  I have a good job, little debt, a good education, a home, a family, lots of experience and plenty of money. In fact, if Obama and Dayton have their way I'll actually have to pay more taxes!  And you know what?  It doesn't bother me.  If the 3 twenty-somethings you describe have suffered under your tutelage then it is no wonder that they can't find a job.  I don't know why Obama laughs at shovel-ready jobs...ask him.  I don't have to apologize for anybody's comments that you don't find palatable.  But I also don't understand why we spend so much of our time worrying about jobs that were important 40 years ago and are not preparing ourselves for the jobs that will be important now and in the future.  That's what the Chinese are doing, by the way...but they're just a bunch of commies so what do they know?  And, as far as being on the public dole: nope, wrong again.  But I do donate plenty of my time and money to things that are of public interest..so I guess I voluntarily contribute to the public dole.  That must make me a socialist, right...redistributing my wealth to people who didn't earn it?  Giving my money and time to places like the foodshelf so people in my neighborhood don't go hungry. 

In closing, people like you and Kirk are the kind of bored, pathetic pieces of shit who I despise.  As messengers, you are ill-informed, crude, smug, semi-literates who only memorize buzz-words and platitudes and then come on here and pass them off as your own.  Your message is shit and deep down you know it.  The anonymity of the internet is the only place you are allowed to exist.

Hey Kirk, where do you get YOUR information? Actually I'm not "complaining" about Bush's time away from the White House, as I don't feel it's my place to judge how much time away ANY President spends. I personally feel they deserve their short vacations and support they time they spend with their families. Just setting the record straight on your erroneous complaints about our CURRENT President.  Ex-President Bush logged more than 200 flights in his eight years in office. At a cost of $56,518 per hour. But Air Force One never flies alone. Traveling with Air Force One are three C5 giant cargo planes that ferry the presidential limo, five helicopters, and numerous support vehicles. The C5 Galaxy is the largest cargo plane in the Air Force inventory. Ex-President Bush spent more time away from the White House than any other president. His total vacation time for his presidency totals over two years of his eight year term.The average annual cost of all trips = $185,000.000.Source(s):http://newsbusters.org/blogs/k...

Once again you are just lying kirk.  That's all Republicans do is lie.   Even if Bush started it, he did it as a lame duck president.   Little different than Obama who did it early in this Presidency.   Obama was responsible for the bulk of the money going to the auto industry.   It's his risk hence his reward.     At the time Obama did the bailout idiot Republicans including you blasted him for it.  Don't pretend you and the rest of the pea brain Republicans didn't call him a Socialist for doing the auto bailout. John McCain ran against the bailout, Obama was for it.    Mitt Romney is the front runner for the Republican nomination and he has opposed the bailout.   kirk is an idiot and a liar.   Responses like that are why you suck.  Your only consistent position is a hatred of Obama.  It's pathetic kirk the liar.   Like you in any way supported the bailouts.   Now you are too stupid to admit you were wrong and Obama was right.

You would have to be the biggest idiot in the world to consider the war in Iraq a success.   Where are the WMDs?    Bush murdered American soldiers with his lies.   It's only the most well established fact of the past 10 years.   Only an America hating scumbag  would lie about Bush and Bin Laden too.  He had 7 years to get Bin Laden, Obama did it 3.    If Bush wanted to get Bin Laden he could have gotten him in Tora Bora instead Bush let him go.    These are facts.    See, that's how I know I'm right.  I have facts and logic backing me up, not the nonsensical ramblings of former drug addicts like Glen Beck and Rush Limbaugh.
