I cannot believe that injustices like this are still occurring under the new administration.

I have to give props to my Senators Corker & Alexander. They voted the right way on HHS Nominee and infanticide enthusiast Kathleen Sebelius. And of course, like nearly every other Obamabot, she’s got tax problems. Her support and encouragement of partial-birth abortion demonstrates even deeper psychoses, however. As Tom Coburn notes:
Coburn, himself an OB-GYN, called Sebelius’ position on late-term abortion “a drastic and fatal character flaw,” and added, “I believe that’s a disqualifier.”
He finished by saying he will mark her confirmation by the Senate as “another signpost on our way toward oblivion as a nation.”
ALSO: If you don’t want this soulless monster in charge of your healthcare, you need to contact your Senators today. Word on the street is that they’re going to try to push socialized medicine through the Senate this week, to celebrate Dear Leader’s 100 days of disaster with a crowning final nail in our coffin.

Well, he may continue to win as a Democrat. In fact, I’m counting on it. Constituents of both parties truly love the man who can bring home the bacon. This is doubly true in the Murthaland that is Pennsylvania.
Well, at least it’s out in the open and this clears the way for Pat Toomey to actually present a conservative option in the Keystone state. Pessimistically speaking, we lost Rick Santorum and I don’t think the country has forgiven the Republicans yet. So, Specter the Donk with compete the conversion to blue state in the short term.
In watching the video from the President’s power play in NYC yesterday, I was struck by the motivation for the display of power. Nothing this administration does is an honest mistake. This is why President Hussein is not allowed to speak without Soros running his teleprompter.
As Cuffy described it, he was torturing 9/11 victims. My first thought was that this bastard decided to remind the sheep who elected him who really sits in the seat of power and that they better fall in line and get with the program, or else. And, as Cranky so aptly put it, this panicking NYC population has voted for the very people who are making them far less safe, so it’s difficult to feel any sympathy for their plight.
It’s not enough for President Narcissist to run the country like his own third-world banana republic (which he learned from his heroes, Castro, Chavez, Odinga, Marx, Mussolini, et al), he has to remind the sheep and shysters in the NY financial sector that he’s the boss and that little Tax Cheat Timmy is flying a 747 around their precious infrastructure.
For the record, NYC sheep, the proper response when Air Force One flies by is to get out your Hope and Change Prayer Rug™ (you’ll find one in your government-issued briefcase), get on your knees and bow to the only “god” Obama knows – himself. Don’t make him spend more of your money on another photo op to remind you of his greatness.
In the 9th trimester? Besides the fact that the uterus’s Klingon-like cloaking device does not extend that far.
Today, countless liberals warming to the thought of a September 10th world, were gently reminded that we live in dangerous times.
Workers from several office buildings poured out onto the streets before they learned that the flights were harmless.
John Leitner, a floor trader at the New York Mercantile Exchange Building, said about 1,000 people “went into a total panic” and ran out of the building around 10 a.m. after seeing the planes whiz by their building, near the World Trade Center site.
I’m sorry they had to go through that trau- waitaminute, I’m not sorry at all. After terrorists scored a direct hit in their home town, they did everything in their power to facilitate a repeat.
Dear Leader and his D.C. crime family are ready to team up with their third-world heroes at the U.N. to take away even more of your parental rights – including the right to homeschool, discipline and make even the most pedestrian decisions about your child’s education and healthcare. And, surprise, surprise, the UN treaty was originally signed by Government Gargoyle Madeliene Halfbright way back in 1995, but never ratified. They’ve got the deck stacked now, though.
Michael Farris of Purcellville, Va., is president of ParentalRights.org, chairman of the Home School Legal Defense Association and chancellor of Patrick Henry College. He told WND that under the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child, or CRC, every decision a parent makes can be reviewed by the government to determine whether it is in the child’s best interest.
“It’s definitely on our doorstep,” he said. “The left wants to make the Obama-Clinton era permanent. Treaties are a way to make it as permanent as stuff gets. It is very difficult to extract yourself from a treaty once you begin it. If they can put all of their left-wing socialist policies into treaty form, we’re stuck with it even if they lose the next election.”
Their plan has always been to get control of your kids as early as possible so that they can be indoctrinated and warped to usurp the structure of the traditional family. It’s gone well, hasn’t it, teachers’ unions? A few gems:
A murderer aged 17 years, 11 months and 29 days at the time of his crime could no longer be sentenced to life in prison.
Children would have the ability to choose their own religion while parents would only have the authority to give their children advice about religion.
The best interest of the child principle would give the government the ability to override every decision made by every parent if a government worker disagreed with the parentâ€™s decision.
A childâ€™s â€œright to be heardâ€ would allow him (or her) to seek governmental review of every parental decision with which the child disagreed.
According to existing interpretation, it would be illegal for a nation to spend more on national defense than it does on childrenâ€™s welfare.
Children would acquire a legally enforceable right to leisure.
Christian schools that refuse to teach “alternative worldviews” and teach that Christianity is the only true religion “fly in the face of article 29″ of the treaty.
Allowing parents to opt their children out of sex education has been held to be out of compliance with the CRC.
Children would have the right to reproductive health information and services, including abortions, without parental knowledge or consent.
It’s a brave new world. Contact your Senators now before this even gets close. They need to be aware that we know this shit is coming down the pike.
Dear President Oprompta,
Please find it in your soft, liberal head to extend the same adulation towards the people who kept this country safe through a sophisticated system of yoga and excessive hydration as you would to your new buddies in the reconstituted Soviet Union:
THE hunt for a nest of female suicide bombers in Chechnya led an elite group of Russian special forces commandos to a small village deep in the countryside.
The soldiers were responding to a tip-off that the eldest of the three, who was in her forties, had been indoctrinating women to sacrifice themselves in Chechnyaâ€™s ferocious war between Islamic militants and the Russians. The others captured with her were her latest recruits. One was barely 15.
â€œAt first the older one denied everything,â€ said a senior special forces officer last week. â€œThen we roughed her up and gave her electric shocks. She provided us with good information. Once we were done with her we shot her in the head.
â€œWe disposed of her body in a field. We placed an artillery shell between her legs and one over her chest, added several 200-gram TNT blocks and blew her to smithereens. The trick is to make sure absolutely nothing is left. No body, no proof, no problem.â€ The technique was known as pulverisation.
The young recruits were taken away by another unit for further interrogation before they, too, were executed.
Where’s the Soviet Abu Ghraib again? That’s right.Â Everyone’s identity is sealed.Â Everyone is protected.Â No photos are ever released.Â There is no mass self-immolation on the world stage whose only benefit is to enrage and recruit more terrorists.Â But wait, there’s more:
The men, decorated veterans of more than 40 tours of duty in Chechnya, said not only suspected rebels but also people close to them were systematically tracked, abducted, tortured and killed. Intelligence was often extracted by breaking their limbs with a hammer, administering electric shocks and forcing men to perform sexual acts on each other. The bodies were either buried in unmarked pits or pulverised.
Far from being the work of a few ruthless mavericks, such methods were widely used among special forces, the men said. They were backed by their superiors …
Such is the benefit of one party rule.Â From what I’ve gathered, this is the plan to deal with America’s right-wing extremists prior to the next election with Mistress Napilatino, Head Heifer of Homeland Security, wielding the cattle prod.Â Er, um, I mean “safety prod”.Â Either that or hogtied with the Lasso of Truth that dangles so imposingly on the hip of her mooseknuckled Wonder Woman underoos.
It was in this highly charged climate that the death squads were operating. Andrei recalled that his men had detained a suspect who had several videos of militants torturing Russian hostages. One showed him laughing as his comrades raped a 12-year-old girl and then shot off three of her fingers.
â€œWe all went berserk after watching this,â€ said Andrei, who had begun to beat the suspect. â€œHe fell to the ground. I ordered him to get up but he couldnâ€™t because of his handcuffs. I ordered the cuffs off but something was wrong with the lock. I became angrier and ordered one of my sergeants to get them off no matter what.
â€œSo he took an axe and chopped his arms off. The prisoner screamed in agony. Clearly it would have been impossible to interrogate him further so I shot him in the head.â€ (ed. – Clearly)
Andrei said he thought of his opponents not as human beings but as cockroaches to be squashed. He was unapologetic about acts of cruelty but said he did not condone excessive boasting among his men.
â€œI had a problem with one of my guys, who liked to collect ears which had been chopped off prisoners. Heâ€™d made a necklace and was very serious about taking this home. I did not like that kind of behaviour.â€
Well, you’ve got to draw the line somewhere I guess.Â Unfortunately for America’s soldiers, our media is allowed to manufacture stories about such atrocities and Obama has a problem with American interrogators who agonize at great length as to which neck brace is appropriate when pushing someone against the wall or how deftly they can pull off Rick James’ “what did the five fingers say the face” joke.
However, Oprompta has no problems draping himself over Moscow’s Bolshevik Butchers like a cheap coat.Â Does it warrant a comment?Â A condemnation?Â Cries for prosecutions and recriminations from the UN?

Our prisoners aren’t dying in custody.Â Our methods have them alive years after fruitful information was extracted and now the masochist Mengeles of the Democratic Party want to hook the jumper cables deemed too harsh for terrorists to the balls of the previous administration for the crime of keeping this country safe enough for you to destroy it from the inside 8 years later.
Just do us a favor you traitors, treat Bush officials with the same respect you treat your Soviet icons.
Update: Another US Marine spills his guts on a tale of his fellow soldiers torturing their captives.Â It’s almost like they developed Stockholm Syndrome after a while.Â Frightening stuff.
UPDATE: Hurricane Petunia is on her way:
Amid confirmation that 20 Americans have been diagnosed with the swine flu, officials at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) said they fear death in the United States as they expect more cases of the virus to emerge.
Earlier today, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said the government declared a public health emergency, which will allow it to free up resources to tackle the issue.
Thank goodness Homeland Heifer is going to chew up all the pestilence on the prairie.Â At least she hasn’t called for a quarantine of all our service men and women to make sure they don’t infect the True Blue U.S.S.A. with their virulent right-wing extremism yet in response.
Quote Homeland Heifer, “On behalf of the USSA gubmint, I’d like to apologize to swine everywhere for comparing it to our troops.”
So I was two years premature with my prediction that we would face a potential pandemic as a result of our de facto open borders policy.Â At the time, the issue was rising tuberculosis rates in states bordering Mexico and a little compare/contrast when Chuckie Schumer was worried that we didn’t have enough border guards to monitor Canada and that “one person with a disease getting into America was one too many”.
I received the usual slings and arrows from the disease carrying Left at the time but such is the price of being right.
And yea, we aren’t facing the black plague yet but imagine if we were.
The World Health Organization is set to declare the deadly swine flu virus outbreak in Mexico and the U.S. a global concern, potentially prompting travel restrictions, said a person familiar with the matter.
An emergency committee of the WHO in Geneva will declare the outbreak â€œa public health event of international concernâ€ in a 4 p.m. teleconference today, said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the meeting is confidential. In response, WHO Director-General Margaret Chan may raise the level of pandemic alert, which could lead to travel restrictions aimed at curbing the diseaseâ€™s spread.
â€œThese levels of pandemic alert are all signals for action,â€ said Malik Peiris, a professor of microbiology at the University of Hong Kong, who has studied influenza viruses for more than a decade. â€œRaising the level of alertness to influenza, especially in returning travelers, would be a relevant thing to do.â€
Maybe we don’t have to imagine so hard after all.Â Maybe when our nation’s Spring Breaking tanned, rested, and wretching frat boys and hoebags keel over after the Cabo or Cancun keggers then people will take this stuff seriously.
The only response the Left has to trying to prevent widespread diseases like this is to cry “racism” to a public safety issue.
When I travel abroad, I always have to make sure to check the travel section of the State Department or the CDC so that I am up to date on my inoculations as some diseases are common in other countries that I would have no immunity.Â It’s a silly thing I do called “Being A Responsible Citizen”.Â Likewise, with people carrying a 16th Century disease walking into a downtown restaurant and applying for a cook’s job aren’t thinking twice about that festering sore on their hands or that productive cough as they pass your plate on to the waiter who has been linguistically and racially profiled as being acceptable to send to your table.
It is not safe to allow unfettered immigration.Â You are holding a syringe filled with swine flu to our necks and demanding our social services for ransom.
When Americans are dying from swine flu be sure to look at your landscaping and that subpar roof you had installed on your house and remember that it was worth it.Â Â In a perfect world, the illegal that gave you the swine flu will also be able to dig your grave for a reasonable rate if that helps make it easier for your family.
We know the Leftists in charge of subverting our country were very concerned about Dear Val.Â So how do you reconcile Porter Goss’s comments in today’s Washington Post?
Let me be clear. It is my recollection that:
— The chairs and the ranking minority members of the House and Senate intelligence committees, known as the Gang of Four, were briefed that the CIA was holding and interrogating high-value terrorists.
— We understood what the CIA was doing.
— We gave the CIA our bipartisan support.
— We gave the CIA funding to carry out its activities.
— On a bipartisan basis, we asked if the CIA needed more support from Congress to carry out its mission against al-Qaeda.
I do not recall a single objection from my colleagues.
Unfortunately, much of the damage to our capabilities has already been done. It is certainly not trust that is fostered when intelligence officers are told one day “I have your back” only to learn a day later that a knife is being held to it. After the events of this week, morale at the CIA has been shaken to its foundation.
Read the entire brutal indictment of Obama trading our security in order to politicize the intelligence.
Our enemies do not subscribe to the rules of the Marquis of Queensbury. “Name, rank and serial number” does not apply to non-state actors but is, regrettably, the only question this administration wants us to ask. Instead of taking risks, our intelligence officers will soon resort to wordsmithing cables to headquarters while opportunities to neutralize brutal radicals are lost.
Apparently, the only people worth protecting at the CIA are the career bureaucrats and Democrat moles charged with passing the buck when the next attack happens. You know like last time they gutted the intelligence community and let 9/11 happen and then had the nerve to blame the sitting President for the agency He Inherited ™.
Let’s just go ahead change the name from the CIA to the CYA.
Death to the Current TV – 2!Â It’s the least we can expect as it’s all Bush’s fault.Â What?Â Six months after he’s gone and these Current Commie dopes take off to provide aid and comfort to Kim Jong.
Lo and behold, he be the Ill-est.Â Almost as bad as Bush!Â So sez the Huffinglues:
Before getting back to the formula, here are a few of the issues weâ€™re all afraid to talk about too much because there are no clear solutions to them and they involve far larger geopolitical gamesmanship and the like that not may help Ms. Saberi, Lee, and Lingâ€™s respective plights. Iran and North Korea are both former members of the infamous â€œaxis of evil,â€ a brand that has not exactly left a pleasant legacy for either of them as they attempt to force the new Obama administration to deal with them in his newly declared era of reconciliation. […] Then there are the human rights issues of which both Iran and North Korea have very blemished track records (not that our own is so hot right now).
Because Iran and North Korea were perfect little angels prior to January 2000, right?Â The US human rights record is in league with North Korea’s and Iran’s because enemy combatants were treated to the CIA’s Extreme Yoga class and evidenced by our black site prisons where we’ve been abducting foreign journalists for years.Â That mean old Bush forced them to take the Al Gore Current’s useful idiots hostage because they are children trying to get mommy’s attention:
To answer the immediate critics, yes it does involve the US extending itself beyond just finding middle ground. It does mean making concessions and inevitably planting karmic seeds that run the risk of producing even more problems down the line. But thatâ€™s the role and risk a parent sometimes has to play with a child that acts out in an effort to get attention. Itâ€™s not stooping to their level. Itâ€™s just bending down to look them in the eye and let them know youâ€™re taking them seriously.
Who is taking who seriously, exactly?Â Last month, despite all the braying and false bravado, North Korea fired off a missile towards Hawaii to underscore who they don’t take seriously.Â That being one Barack Hussein Obama.
They have to stoop to his level because he’s the child with ADHD and their “karmic seeds” are being planted in his ass with both boot heels.
In short, the Huffinglue writer who claims to be one of the formative minds behind Current TV makes no mention of how the plight of two of their “journalists” is being erased from the Current TV website.Â And why wouldn’t they?Â This bit of international nastiness is a great distraction from our Dear Leader’s Glorious Revolution.Â Â We haven’t even the time to enact our Righteous Retribution on Bush’ s War Criminals for daring to offer legal opinions on interrogating Khalid Sheik Mohammed over his hedgehog jihad.
We must look beyond the 2 Google Current morons held prisoner in Pyongyang.Â Many times America has been arrogant and blind.Â If they need to kill Current’s propagandists (or sentence them to a decade in prison) to help tilt the Karmic Scales to the U.S. and North Korea being equal then so be it.Â We are all equally worthless in Barack’s new paradigm.
I know I spin for all of Current TV and the Huffinglue Post when I say that we will build monuments to their deaths for righting the scales of U.S. historical injustice against North Korea.Â When will we learn?
From BMac in the comments, where, unfortunately too many of his gems are hidden in semi-obscurity:
“Donâ€™t look back at California though or youâ€™ll turn to a pillar of salt.”
… your wife refers to this as “The Laundry Song”.
Obinga’s top financial advisor Larry Summers took a little nap while the chosen one ran his stupid trap this afternoon.
For that or some other reason, as President Obama spoke to reporters inside the White House Thursday following a meeting with credit card company executives, Summers was photographed clearly asleep at the end of a table in the Roosevelt Room.
This isn’t the first time this has happened. Summers reportedly fell asleep during an economic summit at the White House in February, but there were no cameras at that event.
Aw, look at the cute little advisor…
Do you think it was the “uuuuuuh” or the “aaaaah” that did it?
Does he side with our enemies because he’s a mooozlem? Doubtful, because, as BMac has so astutely noted, the only “god” the Obamessiah knows is his own image. Does he side with our enemies because that’s what our behind-the-scenes-president George Soros tells him to do? This is a more likely scenario.
No matter, he and his bitches are obsessed with destroying the CIA by releasing as many classified documents as possible – edited and selected specifically to paint the previous administration as barbarians. This is what we in the real world refer to as “dirty pool”.
â€œI like to think I would not have approved those methods in the past,â€ he wrote, â€œbut I do not fault those who made the decisions at that time, and I will absolutely defend those who carried out the interrogations within the orders they were given.â€
Obingo’s own National Intelligence Director (more or less) supported the tactics and agrees that the techniques resulted in valuable, life-saving information. Even Darth Cheney is requesting that the rest of the memos be released.
And like the dutiful traitors that they are, the NYT promotes the Obingo agenda while burying the actual positive outcomes from the interrogations. I will guffaw heartily when the NYT files for bankruptcy.
But when a story comes along that would add “nuance” to a cherished dogma of the left — here, a memo from Obama’s own DNI — explaining that waterboarding in fact saved lives, the Times doesn’t seem moved to inject that nuance into the debate. The left it is quite willing to let live with its silly fantasies, devoid of nuance.
Because the Times buried the story, and thereby signaled to the follow-the-leader sheep media that the story was unimportant, it will not get much play from anyone but that nasty conservative media the Times thinks you shouldn’t be reading anyway.
Now we have scumbags like Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton and Rahm Emanuel making a move to bring the Bush Administration up on charges because they’re the REAL enemy? It’s a brave new world indeed.
It’s blatantly obvious that this administration has no interest in protecting Americans from future terror attacks. Since inauguration day, there is no terrorism, except from those home-grown terrorists who are part of the pro-life, pro-second-amendment, pro-Constitution crowd. You can add to this evidence the fact that he put an anti-American, Janet-Renoesque, blithering idiot in charge of DHS. (as an aside, there is now a Fire Napolitano website…)
Just remember, when the next attack happens, you can thank the Obamessiah’s jolly band of nitwits for their diligence in making sure islamic terrorists are comfortable, have halal food and clean prayer rugs. Or as this patriot put it….
By the way, this is torture.
Here is a read-the-whole-thing article from The Wall Street Journal.
The exclamation point of the article:
None of this display during Mr. Obama’s recent travels could have come as a surprise to legions of his supporters, nor would many of them be daunted by their new president’s preoccupation with our moral failures. Five decades of teaching in colleges and universities across the land, portraying the U.S. as a power mainly responsible for injustice and evil, whose military might was ever a danger to the world — a nation built on the fruits of greed, rapacity and racism — have had their effect. The products of this education find nothing strange in a president quick to focus on the theme of American moral failure. He may not share many of their views, but there is, nonetheless, much that they find familiar about him.
Obama is simultaneously pushing American likability over any interests the nation may have and self-aggrandizing by apologizing for others.
“I’m sorry the guy before me was such a bad person and that my nation is so arrogant. But look, I’m not!”
Our narcissist-in-chief wants you to know that “he ain’t did nuthin!” Proof gives us Visions of American Greatness.
“We are indeed, and we are today, the last best hope of man on earth.”
-Ronald Wilson Reagan
“Hey! Don’t look at me! I was only three months old*!”
The self absorption of the current resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue apparently knows no bounds. Past presidents have been mindful of the dignity of the office, of the continuity of history that is incumbent on the Office of the Presidency of the United States. President Obama could not think of anything to say in defense of his country, other than: “It’s not my fault!”
Nor was this the first time that Obama has used that particular cop out. Remember during the campaign when someone tried to call Obama to account for his association with known domestic terrorist Bill Ayers? Rather than take a principled stand against violence, Mr. Obama could only dissimulate: “I was only eight at the time of the bombings”. In other words, “It’s not my fault!”
Nothing but class from President Jackass – he reeks of accountability. No, wait, he just reeks.
No wonder the Obamessiah is so tight with Chavez.
Just got a note from an angry Mrs. Holmes in reference to this article about how the bank bailout may enable even more corruption. I know, which bailout?
The first: Treasury officials (defending the private-public partnership) “argue that private investors and taxpayers would share profits equally and that investors would be the first to lose if the asset purchase ends up losing money.”
How exactly will I the taxpayer â€œshareâ€ in these profits? Seems to me that the GOVERNMENT will share in these profits, but I doubt Iâ€™ll see a f$%$ing dime.
Secondly: “In light of the fact that the American taxpayer has been asked to fund this extraordinary effort to stabilize the financial system, it is not unreasonable that the public be told how those funds have been used by TARP recipients,” the report states.
Can you tell me when exactly the Obama Administration called the house to ASK us to pay for this crap? I missed that call.
Good questions, honey. But keep in mind, the Obama Administration does not have to call our house to ask us questions because they’ve already tapped our phones. Due to our crazy beliefs (low taxes, smaller government, the U.S. Constitution, etc), we are threats to the country, so I wouldn’t be surprised if they’ve planted bugs as well. I wouldn’t be surprised if Rahm himself were listening in during his free time – you know when, he isn’t busy plotting the destruction of Israel.
Boy howdy, did I just get off track.
Back to your original point, we have been warned to prepare for the release of this “troubling” report, but even with this information, will anything be done about the fraud and corruption flowing through the system already? Not with the corrupt federal government and corrupt financial sector holding hands and jumping off the Hernando-Desoto Bridge together.
I haven’t had confidence in Lamar Alexander in years. I thought he might grow a pair and stand up to the new gaggle of Marxists in power, but instead he’s gone against the wishes of his constituents and gotten in bed with the Obamabots.
Thanks to the Conservative Womens’ Action Network, you can now send Lamar an “official” vote of NO CONFIDENCE. Simply print the graphic below, then fax or mail it to the Senator’s office. Tennesseans, please include your name and address and include a copy of your voter registration card if you have it handy. They need to know that actual voting Tennesseans are paying attention and that we know the difference between empty conservative campaign rhetoric and actual votes to take away our liberty. These RINO elitists need to learn a lesson and they need to learn it by 2010, because they’re too stupid to realize why they got their asses kicked in 2006 and 2008.
