I can’t remember who said this, someone on Facebook, but this is how Sarah Palin might sound if she really understood the issues. We truly are being railroaded by cheap, Chicago thugs.
Hey Pookie Toon fans! As of today, the comics page has a permanent link on our sidebar. According the MapQuest, go left approximately 250 pixels and head south. You can’t miss it.
Everyone should have a real daddy, a fake daddy and a Commie daddy. In my case, I have a Commie uncle, but we’ll leave him out of the equation.
Jack Cashill at the American Thinker has been slogging away at proving, as much as is possible, that Billy Ayers was the true author of the Obamessiah’s race-obsessed screed, Dreams From My Father.
Anyone who has watched President Douchebag without TOTUS knows that the dude may be able to shoot a free throw, but he can’t put a complete sentence together.
Ayers and Obama, however, go beyond citing Sandburg. Each quotes the opening line of his poem “Chicago.” From Dreams:
I thought a moment. “Hog butcher to the world,” I said finally.
This I would call a B-level match. What raises it up a notch to an A-level match is the fact that both misquote “Chicago,” and they do so in exactly the same way. The poem actually opens, “Hog butcher for the world.”
Last week, the first email I received from Mr. West had in the message box “759 striking similarities between Dreams and Ayers’ works.” This claim seemed so outsized I did not take it seriously. When I was unable to open the documents, I emailed Mr. West back, asked him to reformat, and then forgot about the email. He resent his documents a few days later.
That’s just a sample of the litany of detective work that is quite compelling. Read the whole thing and see if you think there’s a match.
It’s just another lie in a long list of lies from a lying liar President. The most historic thing about this Presidency may be that President Hussein is able to get away with more lies in his first five months than President Clifford did in eight years.
Forgive me if I am late to this conversation, but see…I’ve been traveling abroad. I understand that the world has lost one of it’s icons…here where I am the news is just beginning to reach me.
When I read about it, I was crushed. I spent many hours watching his videos, enthralled by the way the man moved, captured by his voice.
And now he is gone. The king is dead. Long live the king…
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Billy Mays, the burly, bearded television pitchman whose boisterous hawking of products such as Orange Glo and OxiClean made him a pop-culture icon, has died. He was 50.
Tampa police said Mays’ wife found him unresponsive Sunday morning. A fire rescue crew pronounced him dead at 7:45 a.m. It was not immediately clear how he died. He said he was hit on the head when an airplane he was on made a rough landing Saturday, and his wife, Deborah Mays, told investigators he didn’t feel well before he went to bed about 10 p.m. that night.
Andrew Breitbart has a must read on The Only Story That Matters.
Michael Jacksonâ€™s shtick was simply a more sophisticated, well financed variation on the molester with an ice cream truck. When after paying millions to his young accuser, Jordy Chandler, Jackson was later found to have gay porn producer Marc Schaffel, an un-indicted co-conspirator in Jacksonâ€™s 2005 child molestation trial, as his PERSONAL VIDEOGRAPHER and close pal on the very private grounds of Neverland Ranch.
Well, a year later, Schaffel was back at Neverland and again acting as Jacksonâ€™s personal videographer who chronicled the taping of the famous Martin Bashir BBC documentary that later appeared on ABC in the U.S., which centered around two young brothers hanging with Jackson and Schaffel as their â€˜chaperonesâ€™ at the creepy amusement park cum bachelor pad.
Why did Michael Jackson bring back the gay porno producer to use a video camera to oversee kid trips to Neverland AFTER it was admitted by Jacksonâ€™s own people the Jackson/Schaffel alliance was blatantly improper?
Needless to say, it doesn’t end with “a world in mourning falls on it’s knees to curse God for denying us another 40 years of bizarre, criminal behavior”.
But boy, could he spin on his toes and grab his crotch (as well as the crotches of others) with the best of them!
I’ll grab mine, now you grab yours!
It was a nice reprieve while it lasted though.Â We could turn on the television or the internet without hearing about North Korea threatening nuclear war, Iran shooting young women in the face, an economy being dragged behind the pick-up truck of the Obama administration,Â passing the largest energy use tax in history, sending terrorists on a taxpayer funded island getaway, or the government taking over the healthcare industry.
But anyway – how’s Bo doing?Â Is Christ On Earth still stealing a Newport when he gets a chance? Admittedly, a hazard of the trade when you’re passing out all those cigarettes to homeless people in exchange for votes for so many years.Â That just means he’s human!Â I was getting worried there for a second.
Which means it’s time to attack your Senators (with phone calls, faxes, emails and visits, NOT weapons, silly) and let them know that you oppose this attack on American industry and on the American family.
44 Democrats were brave enough to buck their leader and vote with common sense. On the down side, there were 8 turncoat GOP house members that helped this attack on the American economy pass 219-212. Without these spineless bastards, the bill would have failed. I wonder what new goodies line their filthy pockets tonight.
These gutless wonders need to hear from you:

Michelle Malkin reminds us that it’s not about science, it’s about politics and the eco-Commies’ greedy agenda.
MELT THE SENATE’S PHONE LINES ALL THIS WEEK, PEOPLE.

Leave it to Memeorandum to give us a snapshot of the most important story of the day.
We needed someone to take the heat of President Pyrite before those geological sleuths in the old media assayed his ass for snubbing them in favor of the Huffington Post while Rahm Emanuel winked and laughed in their pasty, white faces.
All those dead people in Iran gunned down for listening to closely to the codewords in the Muslim Moses’ speech thinking that he was going to save them, or at least stand up for them and the biggest story is a nobody governor.
But this is important.Â It’s just sex, people.Â Isn’t that what we always hear?Â Sex between consenting adults.
We know he has to be a Republican because all these Democrats would have banned themselves from posting on their own websites if he was one of them.
You can’t report on Edwards’ affair until he’s cornered in a hotel lobby.Â Not even then. Â Can’t investigate Obama’s girlfriend at all.Â Â Â These are guys that were running for President.Â You think someone can hide smoking and have no one report on it for 8 months hasn’t bought silence on worse issues than that?
Hell, Clinton ran for President and no one ever asked her how she handled her husband cheating on her and staying married to him.
Sanford’s a nobody.Â Rumored to be thinking about doing something 3 years from now.
It’s all about power and people on the Right need to quit playing games and destroy these people when you get the chance because they are sure as hell going to do it to you.
Like a polar bear floating around on its last little ice cube (awwww.. ain’t that cuuuuute), Tennessee Senator Bob Corker just can’t commit to a vote on cap-and-trade, the scam that the greenies are using to destroy the capitalist system once and for all.
Now that Nasty Pelosi and her minions have cobbled together a cohesive energy-based attack on our economy, it’s time to get serious about encouraging our Senators to grow some balls.
Opponents and supporters of landmark climate legislation are ramping up their public-relations campaigns ahead of the planned vote. The Obama administration is pushing the measure as a job-creator, while critics, including many Republicans, are portraying the bill as an energy tax that could slow the economy.
A job creator? How is all that other job creation going?
The bill aims to cap greenhouse-gas emissions at 17% of 2005 levels by 2020 and at roughly 80% by 2050, creating a market for companies to buy and sell the right to emit carbon dioxide and other gases. It also mandates a new renewable electricity standard and establishes new national building codes.
It would mark the first time that either of the two chambers of Congress have voted to impose mandatory reductions in greenhouse-gas emissions — a goal President Barack Obama wants to achieve before a round of international climate talks in December in Copenhagen.
Mr. Obama on Tuesday said the House climate bill is “extraordinarily important for our country,” urging House members “to come together and pass it.” The president said it would create millions of new “green” jobs that can’t be shipped overseas.
Green jobs? This is the biggest scam to come down the pike in a generation. If you want to know just how much of a scam, pick up Milloy’s book, Green Hell.
When I called Corker’s office earlier, I got the usual non-committal double-speak, which is not surprising given his history with the McShame gang-of-ten and their eco-nitwittery. At least Alexander and Representative Duncan would give me a firm “no” vote against any cap-and-trade bills. Oh well, that won’t stop me from calling.
Let your Senators know that they need to grow a pair and preserve what’s left of our economy.
Meteorologists are reluctant to call a month “nice.” They have their data and their science and typically do not describe the weather in such subjective terms.
Except now, because the data prove it.
“It’s probably the best June since I’ve been here, and I’ve been here most of my life,” said the National Weather Service’s Valerie Meyers, who is in her late 40s. “It’s been really nice.”
Thursday, however, was the 14th consecutive day to stay below 100 degrees. That’s the longest stretch of its kind in any June since 1913.
The lower temperatures have allowed people to sleep with windows open and drive with their arms out vehicle windows. Evenings, too, have been spent chatting with neighbors while children or grandchildren play.
Sleeping with windows open? Chatting with neighbors? OH NO!
Finally, someone says (better than I can) what I’ve been thinking lately. From Greg Gutfeld:
Am I an old fart or am I right to be pissed that some jackass is skateboarding down the halls of the White House while all this Iranian shit is going down?
Right now, people are risking their lives for the glimmer of freedom, and Tony Hawk is in the White House tweeting about Frosted Flakes.
Someone please dig up Reagan. I’d take a dead leader with balls over a living camp counselor who wants all the cool kids to like him.
Hey, we’ve finally found a President who can turn Washington D.C. into his own private amusement park for his friends and his family. Hell, North Korea is about to fire a rocket towards Hawaii, Iran is in total chaos, and the smuggling of $134 Billion in (maybe) counterfeit Treasury Bonds almost crashed our dollar.
Slublog (via Ace) has the classic p-shop that sums it all up:
As I was pondering Obama’s executive leadership skills, I was suddenly reminded of this guy.
Update… Courtesy of Jim Treacher:
It isn’t about the ice cream. People need to start realizing that Obama isn’t the President of the United States; the United States is the throne upon which Obama sits. “Let them eat soft-serve.”
P.S. In honor of Obamaâ€™s commanding leadership, Ben & Jerryâ€™s has announced 6 delicious new flavors: Truncheon Crunch, Ayatollhouse Cookie Dough, Lemon Loin-Gird, Ineffectual Fudge, Let Them Eat Cake Batter, and Toffeetalitarianism.
Following in the footsteps of hurricane Katrina victims, some residents of North Dakota are getting in line for a government hand-out.
Good God people! I am sorry that you lost your home and I am sure it must be an absolutely horrible thing to go through. But why on Earth do you feel that the Federal Government should buy you out? Why on Earth would you WANT the Federal Government bail you out?
Can we divide the country up into idiots and non-idiots? That way, those of us who do not wish to associate with idiots can live in peace.
I’m speechless. I simply want to scream.
Dan Collins has left Protein Wisdom to set up his own shop, Piece of Work In Progress.
Now it can be said, Protein Wisdom is one of the most intelligent blogs I’ve read. However, something interesting happened over the years; Jeff’s armadillos, “meta” humor and Billy Jack pieces started to get old and I found myself more interested in Collins’ work.
Glad to see Dan out on his own makin’ a name for himself. Read it, bookmark it, live it.
All the best to Jeff too.
Sometimes a name can be a self-fulfilling prophecy.
You had to see that coming.
Though he didn’t campaign for President sending his cancer-riddled wife out to flack for him, nor was he the sitting governor of New Jersey involved in some bizarre menage a trois, or the sitting governor of New York with a penchant for call girls, or….still.Â He preached “standards” and we can’t have that.
When you see a smoker who tells you that smoking is bad – don’t believe ‘em, kids.
Lynch mobs are all the rage.Â But don’t take my word for it.Â This week featured some hanging judges that would have made Roy Bean look like Jim J. Bullock in a short-sleeved button up with a pink sweater tied around his waist.
It seems a staff secretary for a local politician did what most every bored secretary does at some point during the day – she forwarded an e-mail.Â An admittedly tasteless one, but one that nevertheless is missing the intent to make this the national story it became.
She did not create the e-mail.Â She did not create the picture in question.Â It was not coordinated by a political campaign.Â But, she worked for the state and worse (A Republican…ssssh!)Â now the liberals have taken the noose that their Democrat grandaddies kept in the closet for their special nighttime barbecues and want to string them up an old lady in hopes of smearing her boss.
That’s politics in this day and age.Â These bloggy little Johnny Ringos are playing for blood but if the standard is now sending out offensive e-mails we can hit 40% unemployment next week.
Your lack of sensitivity offends me, lunger.
Wanna play for blood?
Whaddja say, young man?
If the standard is sending out offensive or politically charged e-mails from state computers then we can solve our budget crisis this month with all the layoffs and it will be the Democrats who infest our government jobs that will bear the brunt of The People’s Budget Windfall.Â Better yet, let’s expand this to state employees who are forced to work for the re-election campaigns of their bosses or face reprisal – On My Dime ™.
But let’s focus on the rorschach of these images for a second and who gets outraged by what.Â Going back two years ago.
a.Â Crazy Islamists start burning down embassies in Denmark over this cartoon being published in a newspaper.
b.Â a local blogger published a crude stick figure of what can only be recognized as “Mohammed” because it has “Mohammed” written on it and holding a bomb.Â A local alt-douche outlet plays up the story and confronts his employer to get him fired.
At the time they wrote this:
Hobbsâ€™ stated pointâ€”that the media shouldnâ€™t be intimidated into self-censorship by angry mobs of Muslimsâ€”is fairly non-controversial….but by deliberately desecrating Islamâ€™s central figureâ€”â€œthe â€˜Prophet Mohammedâ€™ â€ as Hobbs sneered, using quote marks for sardonic emphasisâ€”he attacked an entire religion, not a group of fanatics who pervert the religionâ€™s teachings. Then he drew him as a bearded stick figure holding a bomb and said he â€œblows.â€ It seems bearded Muslim terrorists are the new big-nosed, money-grubbing Jews. …Yep. But thatâ€™s Hobbsâ€™ sophomoric, misguided brand of political humor.
c.Â Speaking of “sophmoric, misguided political humor”, flash forward two years and this is today’s cover of that same alt-douche weekly.
15% more edgy + 75% less content = Pete Kotz Publishing Gold
(I won’t mention the joint smoking Jesus cover)
So much for inflammatory images attacking an entire religion.
Example 2: (more…)
Yes, I know I’ve been AWOL, but I’ve still been tuned in. The goings on in Iran should have everyone’s full attention – well, that attention that you’re not using to try and fight The Obamessiah’s USSA socialist Utopia. Our president can’t be bothered to “meddle” in Iran (this is because he’s likely on the side of the little Hitler and shares his love for general election fraud), but Howie has some suggestions on how to help the Iranian protestors. The original site that carried this guide is down for the count, but more is at Mere Rhetoric.
1. Do NOT publicise proxy IP’s over twitter, and especially not using the #iranelection hashtag. Security forces are monitoring this hashtag, and the moment they identify a proxy IP they will block it in Iran. If you are creating new proxies for the Iranian bloggers, DM them to @stopAhmadi or @iran09 and they will distributed them discretely to bloggers in Iran.
2. Hashtags, the only two legitimate hashtags being used by bloggers in Iran are #iranelection and #gr88, other hashtag ideas run the risk of diluting the conversation.
3. Keep you bull$hit filter up! Security forces are now setting up twitter accounts to spread disinformation by posing as Iranian protesters. Please don’t retweet impetuosly, try to confirm information with reliable sources before retweeting. The legitimate sources are not hard to find and follow.
4. Help cover the bloggers: change your twitter settings so that your location is TEHRAN and your time zone is GMT +3.30. Security forces are hunting for bloggers using location and timezone searches. If we all become ‘Iranians’ it becomes much harder to find them.
5. Don’t blow their cover! If you discover a genuine source, please don’t publicise their name or location on a website. These bloggers are in REAL danger. Spread the word discretely through your own networks but don’t signpost them to the security forces. People are dying there, for real, please keep that in mind…
As most of you already know, I’m a very lame Twitter user, but I’ve changed my timezone to Tehran and encourage others to at least do that. It may not have a big impact but muddying the waters for the little Hitler’s henchmen can’t hurt.
Buffet favorite Cara Ellison is all over the Iranian situation, as are many of the blogs on our blogroll, so tune in.
While I realize that Mousavi is not exactly a best friend to the U.S., he does represent a far more moderate islamic wing and has the support of the vast numbers of Iranian young people who are more open to Western ideas and freedom. Our Dear Leader may be on the side of the Mullahs, but we should use the power of information and whatever tools are available to help these protesters, who are literally being slaughtered for standing up against oppression. It’s a far cry from our tea party movement – though I’m sure Buurrrack, Rahm and Janet are taking copious notes.
The GOP wants to seat a moderate in Florida’s Senate seat being vacated by Mel Martinez. To that end, they endorsed Charlie Crist at the expense of Marco Rubio. DeMint isn’t toeing the company line, to his great credit.
“He is exactly the kind of Senator Florida needs, and exactly the kind of leader our party is looking for: a conservative’s conservative with a record of success in a swing state, a self-made first generation American, a dynamic Republican spokesman in two languages, a young husband and father himself dealing with the same problems middle class families like his face every day,” DeMint writes in today’s FOX News Forum.
DeMint’s statement is here.
The RNC is expected to pull the same thing against Pat Toomey in the race for Specter’s Senate seat. Apparently, the RNC has no faith in conservatism whatsoever.
Strong Weak words from a strong weak man:
“It is up to Iranians to make decisions about who Iranâ€™s leaders will be,” President Obama said this afternoon, underlining “that we respect Iranian sovereignty.”
The president added, however, that he is “deeply troubled by the violence I have been seeing on television. I think that the, the democratic process, free speech, the ability for people to peacefully dissent, all those are universal values and need to be respected.”
And what if he doesn’t?Â You’re going to do what exactly?
â€œI have always felt that, as odious as I feel some of President Ahmadinejad â€˜s statements (are), as deep as the differences that exist between the United States and Iran on coreÂ issues,Â the use of tough hard headed diplomacy, diplomacy without illusions, is critical when it comes to pursuing a core set of national security interests,” the president said. â€œWe will continue to pursue a tough direct dialogue between our two countries.â€
Shorter:Â Even if you steal your election in broad daylight you will face no sanction.Â Admittedly, doing the same thing over and over again with no positive result is pretty hard headed.Â We need some illusions though.Â Â We need a big, honking Criss Angel-sized Mindfreak illusion to make it look like Obama’s diplomacy works.
Forget Iran sending weapons and operatives into Iraq to kill our troops and innocent Iraqi civilians.Â Forget executing gays.Â Holocaust denial is small potatoes by comparison.Â The things he’s saying are not as bad as the things he’s doing.
But yea.Â He’s said some “odious” things.
This is the exact situation I pointed out to one of our loyal opposition in the comments this weekend.
You can encourage those Democracy loving Iranians to protest and cause a ruckus but when the government starts gunning them down in the streets you are going to sit by and let them die.Â You will not fund them.Â You will not help them covertly or overtly.Â And after the real instigators are rounded up there will be no more democratic revolutions for a generation.
He added that the United States had no observers watching the election so he could not comment on allegations of fraud. He noted that the Iranian government promised an investigation, and said he hoped it would be done fairly and without any further violence.
Battles aren’t won with Twitter accounts.Â His response is that he hopes Ahmadinejad, who just stole the election, will run a government investigation done fairly and if found to be incorrect will just throw himself out of office.
I’d say he’s smoking crack mixed in with his Hope-ium if his love of powdered cocaine wasn’t so well documented.
But what are you going to do about it?Â Approximately?Â Dick.
Like encouraging the Kurds to rise up against Saddam Hussein, or the democracy activists at Tiananmen SquareÂ in China or monks mowed down in Burma, if you encourage the weak to rise against the strong without assistance they will die.
Obama may say that no country is better than any other country and that we can’t have anyone being superior over another.Â That we live in a Post-America world and that the End of American Exceptionalism is The Now but then again – he says a lot of odious things too.
… and Toad Blogging is back!
Just get a look at these little buggers coming out of the woodwork!
This guy lives near the front porch and dines nightly at the walkway light.
Though technically not a toad, froggie has made his summer home at my pond.
These toads appear every Thursday at the Philadelphia Suburban Station. Though kindly, I approached with caution and asked if they thought Obama was going to change it. To this fella’s credit, the cause for nonviolence applies to the new administration.
Not so much with this specimen who still believes Bush is in office.
10. In protest of CBS, stopped trying to be funny in 1997, no one noticed.
9. After quintuple bypass surgery, discovered that he had no heart!
8. Misplaced humor bit “Big Ass Ham” found in his pants!
7. Still has violent stomach reaction to Doritos.
6. Used to play to college students, now prefers to play WITH them.
5. Got big laughs dropping watermelons from towers, now tries dropping bombs in his monologue.
4. Obama, Uma. Uma Obama! Ha ha ha ha, yeagh.
3. Primetime? Forget it CSI Topeka is on.
2. Lowest rated CBS show? Two words, Katie Couric!
1. Used to mentor Conan O’Brian, now gets schooled by him.
Because honestly, he could not endear himself any more to the so-called Palestinian people:
Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter was honored by the Palestinian government Saturday and pledged to support the Palestinians’ campaign for independence to the end of his days.
In his acceptance speech, Carter urged the Palestinians to end their internal divisions and stop persecuting their rivals.
He was referring to the growing rift between the Islamic militant (read: terrorist)Â Hamas group, which controls Gaza, and Western-backed Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, in charge of the West Bank.
“Uh-say, h’yere Brothers and (subhuman) sisters, stop all the fightin’!Â Cain’t we-y’all get togeth-uh en hate on them Joooos in peace?”, implored Carter after his West Bank mid-day cooking show finished a week long segment on how Israelis cook the blood of Palestinian children into their Purim breads.Â “Cooking with Carter” is the first HD program available in the region though there it is called being broadcast in “Arafativision”.
“I have been in love with the Palestinian people for many years,” he said Saturday, adding that this is a feeling shared by members of his family.
“I have two great-grandsons that are rapidly learning about the people here and the anguish and suffering and deprivation of human rights that you have experienced ever since 1948,” he said.
Aside from Carter’s deeply sexual feelings for our displaced Jordanian protagonists,Â what happened in 1948?
Jimmeh’s two-state solution is using a little fuzzy math and coming up short.
Not content with the failure of his post-presidential legacy to end the Zionist hell on Earth, Carter aged 85, open fired later that day on a Jerusalem Holocaust museum before loading up on explosives and bicycling around in search of an Israeli checkpoint.
Quote one Israeli source who refused to remain nameless, “He kept getting his Sansabelt slacks caught in the chain of the bike and when he fell over he cupped his hands over his ears and made his “I’m about to go boom” faceÂ – it was a dead give away.Â Well, that and the Obama sticker on his crash helmet.”
The LATino Times publishes a most confusing story today.Â Amid, double digit unemployment for US citizens, the ostensibly US-based news outlet is concerned about the least among us – the ones who stole your Social Security number and have been taking out credit cards in your name for two decades:
No immigration agents descended on Overhill Farms, a major food-processing plant in Vernon. No one was arrested or deported. There were no frantic scenes of desperate workers fleeing la migra through the gritty streets of the industrial suburb southeast of downtown Los Angeles.
For more than 200 Overhill workers, however, the effect was devastating: All lost steady jobs last month and now find themselves in a precarious employment market, without severance pay or medical insurance. It wasn’t a hot tip or an undercover informant that helped seal their fates, but a computer check of Social Security numbers.
Welcome to America, now you’re as equally worthless as the rest of us.Â Ain’t equality a bitch?
Alternate title, “U.S. Economy In Worse Shape Since Depression; Illegal Aliens Hardest Hit”
Because when you have an ICE raid, people are terrified of our abusive, nazi, xenophobic policies but when you do it all nice and clean it’s just as bad!
“My Social Security number was good all these years, why is it suddenly no good now?” asked Eva Macias, a 19-year veteran of Overhill Farms. “We left our youth in that plant.”
Suddenly no good?Â Â It was always no good.Â It was suddenly discovered.
You left your youth in that plant???Â You can’t just leave that kind of thing lying around.Â Keep it in a locker.Â Leave it in your car before you go in.
It probably would have been a lot better off in a sweat shop in Oaxaca.
One after another, the ex-workers lamented losing a steady job, even if it paid only $10 an hour, the average salary. All spoke of bleak prospects for finding alternative work in a shrinking economy.
