Are you part of the "Pool Spray?" If not....

then you don't to attend the meeting. VP Joe Biden, is not wanting to give us any 'Hope and Change' in the way he conducts his daily duties. Those that thought Cheney was bad in his closed dealings can only look at a few meetings on Biden's docket to see that his desire to be transparent is aligned with Odrama and the rest of the Dems in Washington right now.

Thanks to the Drudge Report 2010 and the Los Angeles Times, here is a sampling of their article:

Here is the vice president's official schedule for today. Boldface was added in the interests of emphasis. Note especially that the vice president's meeting with the chairman of the Recovery Act Transparency and Accountability Board is closed, meaning non-transparent.

The "pool spray" mentioned has nothing to do with aquatics. It's a coded message to media that a few select members will be allowed in to take pictures briefly -- possibly for only a few seconds -- as Biden and his guest pretend to continue their previously private conversation as if the meeting was open.

In the morning, the President and the Vice President will receive the Presidential Daily Briefing and the Economic Daily Briefing in the Oval Office. These briefings are closed press.

At 11:30 AM, the Vice President will meet with Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood to discuss the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. This meeting is closed press.

Afterwards, the President and the Vice President will have lunch in the Private Dining Room. This lunch is closed press.

At 1:00 PM, the Vice President will meet with Iraqi Vice President Adil Abd al-Mahdi in the Roosevelt Room. There will be a pool spray at the bottom of this meeting; gather time is 1:45 PM in the Brady Briefing Room.

(UPDATE 2:20 p.m.: The White House issued its own report on this closed meeting. Both paragraphs are added below at the end of the VP's schedule.)

Then, at 2:15 PM, the Vice President will meet with Earl Devaney, chairman of the Recovery Act Transparency and Accountability Board. This meeting is closed press. ###

White House report on one of Biden's closed meetings:

Today, Vice President Biden met with Iraqi Vice President Adil Abd al-Mahdi at the White House. President Obama joined part of the discussion. The leaders discussed preparations for the March parliamentary elections and ongoing efforts to resolve outstanding national unity issues.

Today’s meeting was the latest in an ongoing series of high-level engagements between U.S. and Iraqi officials. The U.S. government remains committed to a long-term partnership with the Iraqi government and people.

When are they going to learn? Hopefully at the next 2 BIG elections. God Help us.

Gibbs and his transparency about transparency

Abortion funding is far from over

Dr. Charmaine Yoest, Marjorie Dannenfelser, Kristan Hawkins and David Bereit
Desperate times call for desperate measures, so they say. The abortion industry is right in the middle of these desperate times after their leader, President Obama, abandoned them in the midst of the health care debate. By not stepping in to ensure that the Stupak-Pitts amendment, which prevents the government from funding abortion, would not be in the health care bill, he seems to have left them out in the cold.

Maybe not. After the amendment overwhelmingly passed the House did the president step in to say it went too far and that he would work to strip it from health care? The betrayal of Sen. Ben Nelson, Nebraska Demcrat, certainly took a step in the right direction for the president when he caved on a phony abortion compromise that pushed the health care bill through the Senate on Christmas Eve.

But the abortion industry has certainly had its share of heartbreaks as well. Perhaps one of the worst betrayals came from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, an ardent pro-choicer herself, when she left the abortion lobby to fend for itself after letting Stupak-Pitts get to the floor for a vote.
So it's no wonder that Planned Parenthood, NARAL and their allies are using desperate measures to make sure that the government funds abortion through health care. They have supposedly sent coat hangers to the Democrats who voted in favor of the Stupak amendment and have attacked the Catholic Church for standing up for its deeply held conviction and teaching that all life is sacred and that the government shouldn't be funding abortion.

And they are outright trying to deceive the American public on the merits of the Stupak amendment.

Earlier this month, New York Democratic Rep. Nita Lowey claimed that the Stupak-Pitts Amendment "puts new restrictions on women's access to abortion coverage in the private health insurance market even when they would pay premiums with their own money." Just days later, issued an analysis and said her comments were "false."

Planned Parenthood's cover has been blown. Before the vote on Stupak-Pitts, there were no uproars from the abortion lobby about government funding of abortion in the health care bill. There were no send-your-legislator-a-hanger campaigns. Why? Because they were hoping this issue would slip under the radar and that the bill would pass without any specific exclusion of abortion, which would ensure that abortion would certainly be funded by the government.
But pro-life groups like ours were making noise and demanding abortion funding be taken out of health care legislation. And we will continue to do so as the House and Senate bills have to be reconciled.

And if it weren't for the Michigan Democratic Rep. Bart Stupak's perseverance and courage - and the courage of those who voted with him - the abortion industry could have very well pulled the wool over the eyes of the majority of Americans who do not want their tax dollars funding abortions.

But it's not over yet, far from it. The Senate bill provides for government-funded abortions and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops calls it "the worst we've seen yet."

These are certainly desperate times. Our nation has come to a well-defined fork in the road. President Obama and Congress can either choose to protect the status quo or fund abortion and ram an unpopular and immensely immoral bill through the legislature. It is our hope that the nation does not choose to fund abortion with government money.

Dr. Charmaine Yoest is president and CEO of Americans United for Life. Marjorie Dannenfelser is president of the Susan B. Anthony List. Kristan Hawkins is executive director of Students for Life. David Bereit is national director of 40 Days for Life.

Watch for biased editing with liberal newspapers

Here is what I sent in to the paper, notice that the actual date of the event is included, the bottom version of the announcement is the version that went into the newspaper, some minor editing along with having the date of the event removed. It is obvious that we have liberal newspapers everywhere including this local one called, The Daily Reflector. This is not the first time our announcements have been 'fixed' and I am no longer going to sit down and take it.

For IMMEDIATE RELEASE:Republican Women of Pitt County will meet Thursday, January 21st at Brook Valley Country Club at noon for their monthly luncheon and business meeting. The program will feature Noel (Chris) Cayton of the Beaufort County Committee for Constitutional Studies, a non profit organization that sponsors annual study courses on the Constitution in the tradition of the founding fathers. We will also be conducting a drive for Give2theTroops for sandwich and larger storage bags to help the organization in packing necessary items for our military troops deployed around the world. Last month our club collected money for Give2theTroops for needed supplies. Please RSVP by calling (removed for this blog publication)

Daily Reflector's version of our announcement is below:

A Pro-life Democrat that is Catholic? Really?

How can a Catholic be a Democrat with these statement in it's platform?


The Democratic Party strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a
woman's right to choose a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay,
and we oppose any and all efforts to weaken or undermine that right.

The Democratic Party also strongly supports access to comprehensive affordable
family planning services and age-appropriate sex education which empower people
to make informed choices and live healthy lives. We also recognize that such
health care and education help reduce the number of unintended pregnancies and
thereby also reduce the need for abortions.

The Democratic Party also strongly supports a woman's decision to have a child
by ensuring access to and availability of programs for pre- and post-natal
health care, parenting skills, income support, and caring adoption programs. and
on a more 'perfect' union, it states:

A More Perfect Union We believe in the essential American ideal that we are not
constrained by the circumstances of birth but can make of our lives what we
will. Unfortunately, for too many, that ideal is not a reality. We have more
work to do. Democrats will fight to end discrimination based on race, sex,
ethnicity, national origin, language, religion, sexual orientation, gender
identity, age, and disability in every corner of our country, because that's the
America we believe in. and....

It is not enough to look back in wonder at how far we have come; those who
came before us did not strike a blow against injustice only so that we would
allow injustice to fester in our time. That means removing the barriers of
prejudice and misunderstanding that still exist in America. We support the
full inclusion of all families, including same-sex couples, in the life of
our nation, and support equal responsibility, benefits, and protections. We
will enact a comprehensive bipartisan employment non-discrimination act. We
oppose the Defense of Marriage Act and all attempts to use this issue to
divide us.
