I know it’s a day old story but I did read Malcolm X in college:
Holder told POLITICO that between now and his departure, probably in early March when the Senate is expected to confirm Loretta Lynch as his successor, he will call for a lower standard of proof for civil rights crimes. Such a change would make it easier for the federal government to bring charges in the case of a future Ferguson or Trayvon Martin.
“I think some serious consideration needs to be given to the standard of proof that has to be met before federal involvement is appropriate, and that’s something that I am going to be talking about before I leave office,” Holder, 64, said.
Says the guy who once launched an armed takeover of an ROTC building while in college.
Holder was then among the leaders of the Student Afro-American Society (SAAS), which demanded that the former ROTC office be renamed the “Malcolm X Lounge.” The change, the group insisted, was to be made “in honor of a man who recognized the importance of territory as a basis for nationhood.”
Making sense yet? When Eric X stormed the ROTC building, he renamed it the Malcolm X Lounge. Just harmless fun for Eric X, right? Not representative of the racist attitude that brought tears to Fuhrer Obama’s eyes at the thought of his retirement. A little more to it than that:
The ROTC headquarters was ultimately renamed the Malcolm X lounge as the SAAS organization demanded. It later became a hang-out spot for another future U.S. leader, Barack Obama, according to David Maraniss’ best-selling ”Barack Obama: The Story.”
So, you see the connection now. Eric X, while in the commission of a gun crime, storms an ROTC building on the Columbia campus and renames it the Malcolm X Lounge. Eventually, the leftwing school likes the sound of it and decides to name it that. Eventually, it becomes a “hang out spot” for Obama while he was at Columbia.
This “make it easier” standard for federal civil rights charges that he’s talking about is called “evidence”. You see, in Trayvon Martin and the Gentle Giant’s cases, there wasn’t any. Eric X wants to eliminate the need for any evidence to charge someone with a hate crime.
He has Eric X-Ray vision that can see racism in your heart and the prosecutorial power to arrest you for it.
“I would hope that I say this not to every African-American of his age but for every American, that you read The Autobiography of Malcolm X to see the transition that that man went through, from petty criminal to a person who was severely and negatively afflicted by race, to somebody who ultimately saw the humanity in all of us, and that would be a book I would recommend to everybody,” said Holder.
I’m loathe to point this out but Malcolm X’s “awakening” and how he “ultimately saw humanity in all of us” came about when he went on a hajj to Mecca and saw white people praying to Allah.
I’m also loathe to point out that Malcolm X’s assassination was ordered by Louis Farrakhan after he left the National of Islam and that Farrakhan is Barack Obama’s Hyde Park neighbor in Chicago. And like Bill Ayers, remains guilty as hell but free as a bird.
That link is from the old CBS interview where Farrakhan all but admitted his role in the assassination of Malcolm X to his widow Betty Shabazz.
By the way, there is no statute of limitation on murder and the deprivation of Malcolm X’s civil rights if you want to pursue it there Eric X. You lying, deceitful, divisive bigot.
Earlier today, Obama leaked his prebuttal to Benjamin Netanyahu’s upcoming speech to Congress into the absorbent pages of the New York Times:
Just four days before Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to a joint meeting of Congress, the Obama administration sought on Friday to refute the Israeli leader’s expected critique, arguing that he has failed to present a feasible alternative to American proposals for constraining Iran’s nuclear program.
A well placed military strike on Iran’s centrifuges is not a “feasible alternative”? This isn’t trying to clear the air, it’s a half-assed attempt to pollute it with his Obama’s intentionally unverifiable lies. How can you criticize what we won’t let you in on even though you most certainly are a stakeholder in this process?
This is the regime’s and the state run media’s same line of argument regarding Obamacare – you must accept the premise that something must be done about this right now and that a bad deal is better than doing nothing. It also tries to corral the opposition into “being part of the solution” to a problem that they didn’t create and want no part of to begin.
You hear it every time a moron Republican like Marco Rubio or Jeb Bush say that they want to “repeal and Replace” Obamacare. You lose me at anything after “repeal”.
As such, this line of argument should be dismissed out of hand and those that fall for it are immediately disqualified from seeking higher office.
In a briefing for reporters, senior administration officials contended that even an imperfect agreement that kept Iran’s nuclear efforts frozen for an extended period was preferable to a breakdown in talks that could allow the leadership in Tehran unfettered ability to produce enriched uranium and plutonium.
Which all presupposes that: a) Iran is going to agree to this agreement – which they haven’t and probably will not; b) that they are then going to follow the terms of an agreement – which they won’t because they are going at a breakneck pace to get a bomb as we speak; c) tie the hands of the US and our allies from placing any sanction against the Iranians while they continue to break every condition.
Just this week, it was released that the Iranian “negotiator” continues to take big dumps in John Kerry’s mouth in between holding mock military exercises where they bomb our ships. You know – our partners in this potemkin peace process.
To wit, the paid OFA trolls in the Washington Post, New York Times, Pollutico, and The Hill will attack anyone criticizing this idiocy as being in favor of an imminent invasion of Iran instead of just saying that we don’t have to give away the house to an enemy that negotiates in bad faith.
Remember when Obama wouldn’t meet with Netanyahu because it is so close to the Israeli elections? Yea, that was a lie. Remember, he doesn’t want to interfere in their election? Yea, that was a lie. Remember when he said he wasn’t notified that Netanyahu was coming beforehand? Yea, that was a lie.
I think I’m seeing a pattern here. Everything about this Iranian nuclear negotiation is lie because everything this administration does in secret is built on lies. Everything that is conducted in secret is done so because there would be public outrage if people saw the sausage of this non-existent agreement being made.
Writing Obamacare in secret. The State Department more time to review the Keystone Pipeline in secret. Writing FCC rules on Net Neutrality in secret. Investigating the IRS over targeting Tea Party groups and claiming all records were destroyed. Who is visiting the White House. Obama’s college transcripts kept sealed seven years into his term. Everything has always been a lie.
Per another unnamed lying liar in the administration filled with professional liars:
“We have made a substantial amount of progress,” the senior administration official acknowledged. “Ultimately, Iran has to make a very significant political decision to allow the flexibility to close this deal.”
I hate assumptions. A reporter might ask “What progress has been made?” But we know there is none. In Obamaworld, the fact that we are talking, and by “talking” I mean you screaming at me, is considered a success.
So let’s piss off Saudi Arabia and leave Israel threatened with destruction while we are screaming at them to not interfere with our freeing up billions to Iran to help them building a nuclear arsenal.
I guarantee you, Obama would give Iran some of our nuclear weapons if they would agree to this fantasy land accord. Because that is what Bill Richardson did with North Korea in the 90s. He gave them two nuclear reactors and then acted surprised when they let off a bomb. It’s “fair” to give Iran nuclear weapons because Israel has nukes and that’s not fair.
Plus, this is supposed to be a feather in John Kerry’s hat, a hat that he has to this day, as a success story for him to run for President again. This is his last chance and it’s Hitlery’s last chance.
Luckily, having both of the last two Secretariats of State on the same ticket while we see the fruits of their success burning brightly in the Middle East, smoldering after the Boston Marathon, the U.S. giving Hamas $400M to build terrorist tunnels into Gaza, having terrorist training camps in Libya post-Hilary’s War, the evacuation of the U.S. embassy in Yemen following Iran’s takeover of that country, Russia pressing the reset button several times into the backs of its opposition on the steps of the Kremlin while invading every neighbor they can afford to, etc., etc., etc., may convince Retarded America that Horseface McKetchup and Monica Lewinsky’s Ex-boyfriend’s Wife might not be the best this formerly great country has to offer.
It might. I don’t know. I have zero faith in the people in this country. When the schools were lost, the voters followed.

Well, it’s not really a throwback if you’re asshole-deep in it today! Let’s take a look, shall we?
First, COOTUS is using yet another Executive Order to backdoor gun control by banning ammunition.
“The Obama administration was unable to ban America’s most popular sporting rifle through the legislative process, so now it’s trying to ban commonly owned and used ammunition through regulation,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA-ILA, the group’s policy and lobby shop. “The NRA and our tens of millions of supporters across the country will fight to stop President Obama’s latest attack on our Second Amendment freedoms.”
Whatever it takes for the children, right boss?
Next, COOTUS’ puppets at the FCC have pushed through the innocuously named “net-neutrality rules” so that the layabouts at the Fed now have something to do – namely destroy the free flow of digital content, pile on more and more taxes and regulations and determine what content is given priority. I’ll let you guess how all that will work out.
Republican Commissioner Ajit Pai, who delivered some of the most scathing criticism of the plan Thursday, warned the policy represents a “monumental shift” to “government control of the Internet.”
Further, he accused the FCC of bending to the will of Obama, who last fall came out in favor of such a sweeping regulatory plan.
Pai said the FCC was reversing course from past positions for one reason: “President Obama told us to do so.”
He warned of a litany of negative consequences, intended or not, from the net neutrality plan. He said it allows rate regulation — and, ultimately, rates will go up and broadband service will slow.
Pai said that while the plan defers a decision on applying a service fee to Internet bills — much like is applied to phone bills — that surely will change.
Federal prosecutors in New York’s Brooklyn-based Eastern District pursued cases against secret, unnamed “John Doe” defendants 58 times since Loretta Lynch became head prosecutor in May 2010. Two of the 58 are terrorism cases.
Eastern District prosecutors have also sought permission to close the courtroom to the public for 11 different Doe cases during the same period, and judges have granted permission in at least 10 of the cases, as recently as February 12.
Critics are concerned the practice may infringe the Constitution’s guarantee of a public trial.
“While pseudonyms may be appropriate in exceptional cases, the courts should always opt for more transparent methods of protecting sensitive information when available,” said Lee Rowland, staff attorney of the ACLU Speech, Privacy & Technology Project. “The disproportionate number of John Doe cases in the Eastern District is certainly a cause for concern; complete secrecy about the parties in a case should never be a default option.”
Speaking of transparency, I remember when 3 billion was a lot of money. But it’s none of our damn business what the Feds do with our tax dollars.
The U.S. Treasury Department has rebuffed a request by House Ways and Means Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan, R- Wis., to explain $3 billion in payments that were made to health insurers even though Congress never authorized the spending through annual appropriations.
At issue are payments to insurers known as cost-sharing subsidies. These payments come about because President Obama’s healthcare law forces insurers to limit out-of-pocket costs for certain low income individuals by capping consumer expenses, such as deductibles and co-payments, in insurance policies. In exchange for capping these charges, insurers are supposed to receive compensation.
What’s tricky is that Congress never authorized any money to make such payments to insurers in its annual appropriations, but the Department of Health and Human Services, with the cooperation of the U.S. Treasury, made them anyway.
Last but certainly not least, COOTUS is threatening retribution against any ICE agents who dare to enforce our nation’s immigration laws.
“Not only are we going to have to win this legal fight.. but ultimately we’re still going to pass a law through Congress. The bottom line is I’m using all the legal power invested in me in order to solve this problem.”
“If somebody’s working for ICE … and they don’t follow the policy, there’s going to be consequences to it.”
This narcissistic bastard pledged six years ago that he was going to remake Amerikkka with our without the other allegedly co-equal branches of government and he’s making good on his promise. With cowards like McConnell, Boehner, Corker, Alexander, Graham and the rest of the GOP bending over and grabbing their ankles every time COOTUS says so, there’s not much hope for liberty going forward. This country does not even remotely resemble the one in which I was raised. I wish I could put my hat on backwards, watch the Oscars and suddenly become interested in the moronic celebrity worship that rules this culture, but, for some reason I still care. I need a drink.
Look, guys. I understand that no Democrats in the Senate are going to vote to impeach this traitor in the White House. But he’s daring the Republicans to. He is threatening federal workers to violate federal law or else they are going to be fired from their jobs or worse:
“Until we pass a law through Congress, the executive actions we’ve taken are not going to be permanent; they are temporary. There are going to be some jurisdictions and there may be individual ICE official or Border Control agent not paying attention to our new directives. But they’re going to be answerable to the head of Homeland Security because he’s been very clear about what our priorities will be,” Obama said, according to a partial transcript provided by the pool reporter.
“Not only are we going to have to win this legal fight.. but ultimately we’re still going to pass a law through Congress. The bottom line is I’m using all the legal power invested in me in order to solve this problem.”
“If somebody’s working for ICE … and they don’t follow the policy, there’s going to be consequences to it.”
He joked about using the IRS to audit his enemies too and we saw that he followed through on that threat. We are already so far beyond High Crimes and Misdemeanors at this point. Republicans laid their cards down before the flop and said they would never lift a finger against Obama.
Well, assholes – he heard you loud and clear and ran with it.
This would be a question to any hardened Leftist:
Imagine the CEO of a big corporation, in some big, gray corporation building, sitting behind his burlap sacks with dollar bill signs on them and chomping on his cigar sends out an e-mail ordering his Accounting, Tax, and Legal Departments to do whatever they can to evade paying their taxes or they are going to be fired.
He tells them, “Don’t worry. We’re lobbying to have the law changed. It’s not changed yet but our legislators have heard us and we’re not going to suffer because they haven’t done their job yet!”
You’d want him to be frogmarched out of that building wouldn’t you? Arrested. Prosecuted. And any underlings who were complicit more than likely.
Well, this is no different at all. He is violating his oath of office to faithfully execute the laws.
Implicit in his statement is that there is no law in place to justify what he is doing. He is making verbal commands. He is abolishing two co-equal branches of government by bypassing Congress to write a law, as if he would sign one a Republican Congress sent him anyway, and ignoring the Judiciary out of hand. A more strident judge and a different situation would be arresting him for contempt of court.
His minion at DHS is complicit in this criminal conspiracy. As is his minion at the inappropriately named Justice Department. Same thing with the FCC and so-called Net Neutrality.
This is the definition of a tyranny. It is unconstitutional. It is an impeachable offense. We are no longer a republic but a monarchy who has laws abolished with the wave of a hand.
I’d ask the Leftists what they think of this but this is what they have always wanted. A “benevolent” dictatorship as long as they get to be the dictator. And that’s why you all are fucking totalitarians and I am glad that I’ve treated every single one of you accordingly over the years. I never had any illusions about what deceitful pieces of shit you were and are.
For ICE, I know this economy sucks because the guy who is ordering you to violate the laws you swore to uphold is also the one responsible for that too. But a message has to be sent and there should be resignations in protest from the top on down and the governors of the border states should call out the National Guard. It should not be ICE’s position to be forced between violating a federal court’s ruling or fear of retribution from an out of control dictator making up rules as he goes along. You are not obliged to follow an order asking you to break the law. This is the same law you’d enforce to the letter for a German, French, Swedish, or Chinese immigrant. This is a request from a President to violate equal protection laws in favor of one race of people.
How about No Speeding Tickets for Whites Day? Extra Ice Cream Toppings for Gays Day. No Immigration Laws for Hispanics Day…wait, we’ve already got that one.
This is more than just Obama pandering to what he hopes will be an illegal immigrant voting base that will turn this country into a third world shithole with a new permanent underclass he can buy off with food stamps. He has officially sparked a constitutional crisis on purpose and dared Republicans do anything about it.
When the history books write about the sparks that led to the Second Civil War, this is one of those moments. And history will be especially unkind to the Mitch McConnells and John Boehner who sat on their hands as these tyrannies went unanswered. The Courts cannot save you when their rulings will not be followed.
…Shoving all those Pinocchios where the sun doesn’t shine.
Does former Mayor Giuliani not listen to Obama’s speeches? The president has consistently expressed love of country and extolled the virtues of the United States in many speeches, while also at times acknowledging what he considered flaws and mistakes made in the past (what critics have labeled “an apology tour”).
Here are a few examples from Obama:
This is the WaPo’s “fact checker” getting all animated at Rudy Giuliani’s observation that Obama is just not that into the whole American Experience thing.
I’ll save the perfunctory recitations of “love of country” Kessler maintains as evidence that Obama is, in fact, so in love with America that we need to take out a restraining order against him. Usually in the context of “only in a country like this could a great guy like me become President” or the usual county fair, we can do anything if we work as A Collective.
Giuliani must have muted the sound whenever Obama spoke. He certainly has every right to his opinion about the tenor of the president’s remarks. But he has no business claiming something that is so factually incorrect – or easily disproved. He earns four Pinocchios.
Giuliani’s catching hell because he is directly over the target.
The issue isn’t whether Obama has ever said he loves this country. He clearly has. He never would get elected saying that he despises his country. The issue is that he’s bald-faced liar because every action he takes is through the prism of American being the force for ill in the world, conceived in slavery, that everything we have achieved was stolen from someone else, and that we need to be taken down a notch or ten. We need to get off our high horse. A horse that we probably stole from an Indian after we gave him blankets filled with smallpox.
When your impassioned defense of your, not mine, your President’s patriotism comes two or three days after he names a fucking Japanese Internment Camp as a national monument, there is a tremendous disconnect in attacking the guy whose eyes are working and being obtuse and pretending to not see his point.
Did you ever think you’d see the day that the atheistic Communists who constitute the majority of the Democrat Party would demand that you recognize the inherent decency of having a patriotic Christian President?
It’s only because he’s not one but still – telling.
Perhaps a meeting on “violent extremists” where only Moslems are invited to be stroked and fed dates by the Mooch in her finest shower curtains will rebut the dog whistles you hear when Christians are beheaded en masse and/or insufficiently Islamic Muslims are burnt alive for daring to defend themselves against Those That Shall Not Be Named.
Political correctness demands that we not just tolerate but embrace every cross-dressing, grievance mongering, nutbar idea that comes down the pike. Except for the truth. If that ever got it then it might derail the whole thing. And that’s what has made this weekend so peculiar. This new Evangelical McCarthyism of the Left. Have you now, or have you ever questioned that Barack Hussein Obama might not be more Christian than Christ crucified?
Sure he was raised as a Muslim in Indonesia, blames Christians for the Crusades, hasn’t gone to church in seven years and when he did before it was to the service of a racist bigot who hates this country in order to get votes in Chicago- but to say that he’s not a Christian? It’s so far beyond the pale.
I say judge a man by his actions. How much does he give to charity? Tut-tut – your tax dollars to special interests don’t count. Does he bear false witness about his enemies? Is it possible for him to love his neighbor as much as he loves himself? Is he a man of peace or a divisive bigot who lives to sow animosity between those neighbors and a coveting of their belongings? Whicn 10 Commandment has Obama not broken?
Is he standing between the torches and pitchforks or is he the guy who organized the mob and threw gas on the fires? It’s pretty clear which camp Ayatollah Obama – Arbiter or What Is and What Ain’t officially Islam is.
Before one more goddamn question get’s asked of Scott Walker about Obama’s Christian faith, I want just a couple of questions asked of Obama:
Is Jesus Christ your one and only Lord and Saviour? That all others are false and that there is no way to heaven except through him? That he died and was resurrected from the dead?
If you can’t answer those questions then you are not a Christian. And Obama cannot answer those questions in the affirmative because he is not one.
Required Reading: Kevin Williamson’s piece at NRO and, of course, Mark Steyn’s take on what Obama is doing to the Middle East on purpose.
Ace even has a good post up about the manufactured outrage of the Jonathan Chaits of the world and their phony appeals to a leftwing patriotism that doesn’t, didn’t, and never will exist.
All these people calling shit like it is. I’m kind of glad I got up this morning.
The NY Post has an outstanding piece by Kyle Smith pissing on the media parade for Jon Stewart’s not-a-moment-too-soon exit from the Daily Show:
Stewart is a journalist: an irresponsible and unprofessional one.
He is especially beloved by others in the journo game. (For every 100 viewers, he generated about 10 fawning profiles in the slicks, all of them saying the same thing: The jester tells the truth!).
Any standard liberal publication was as likely to contain an unflattering thought about Stewart as L’Osservatore Romano is to run a hit piece on the pope.
The hacks have a special love for Stewart because he’s their id. They don’t just think he’s funny, they thrill to his every sarcastic quip. They wish they could get away with being so one-sided, snarky and dismissive.
And that couldn’t be more true. Though, in fairness, CNN and MSNBC have ritually hoisted the pole and populate the three ring Old Media circus with lesser bozos like Don Lemon, Ashleigh Banfield, Piers Morgan, Ronan Farrow to unintended comedic effect.
Back to Stewart, there is no greater dissembling of his clown shoes and red rubber nose than this Bill Whittle take down of his assertion that the atom bomb did not need to be dropped on Japan to end World War II. If you watch anything today let it be that. Whittle should have done the humanitarian thing and dropped leaflets over Comedy Central before laying waste to Stewart’s sanctimonious misinformation in an attempt to cast a U.S. victory in WWII as being based on a war crime. It should be mandatory viewing in any journalism class, US history class, and tattooed on Stewart’s tombstone when he chokes to death on his lack of success in a post-Daily Show world.
Brian Williams has become a joke for telling lies, but Jon Stewart is a liar for the way he told jokes.
The ATF is going to have to investigate Kyle Smith for dropping all that Kaboom without a federal license.
Lost in the shuffle of today’s non-stop nontroversy over vaccinating kids was the barbaric snuff video of ISIS’s AG Eric Holder setting a ratings agency on fire as example to others.
That is how much Eric Holder fined Standard & Poor’s for making his boss look bad when they downgraded the country’s credit rating in 2011.
S&P on Tuesday agreed to pay $1.5 billion to resolve litigation alleging it knowingly issued rosy grades of risky mortgage bonds before the crisis. As part of the deal, the government backed off demands that S&P admit to violating laws, reducing the firm’s exposure to future lawsuits.
Now, if we could only figure out who legislated that banks be forced make risky mortgages in the first place because 0% down payments are necessary for unqualified applicants to own homes they can’t afford or else racism.
Not content to extort fourteen hundred million dollars out of a mere rating agency, Holder also demanded as part of the settlement that S&P retract claims that his suit was filed in retaliation for the country’s credit downgrade:
Much of the fighting related to S&P’s allegation that the Justice Department sued in retaliation for the agency’s downgrade of U.S. government debt in 2011. S&P agreed to retract that charge as part of the deal. Attorney General Eric Holder said the retraction was important to him and the Justice Department.
Move over Al and Je$$e, there’s a new shakedown artist in town.
So that settlement condition was also a retaliation. Like the $16,000,000,000.00 extortion of Bank of America, these funds will eventually be distributed to newly reconstituted ACORN groups, La Raza, and a host of other Obama special interests.
One day we’re going to cut that horn off and grind it down into dick pills for little Chinese ballers and use the money to build a deportation center with your name on it.
If this is not enough to make your blood boil. A while back, WWII veterans who are part of Honor Flight, requested permission to visit the Washington memorial in their honor. They were summarily rejected by the White House themselves.
In a moment of civil disobedience that eclipses the Occupy Wall Street goons, these veterans kicked down the hastily erected barricades that Barack Hussein Obama’s self-directed goons put in their way less than several hours after the start of the government shutdown.
After all, how can an open air memorial not operate without park rangers making sure that veterans aren’t shitting all over their own memorial?
The White House and the Department of the Interior rejected a request from Rep. Steven Palazzo’s office to have World War II veterans visit the World War II memorial in Washington, the Mississippi Congressman told The Daily Caller Tuesday.
Palazzo helped the veterans commit an act of civil disobedience against the Park Service Tuesday, when the heroes stormed through barricades around the closed memorial.
The veterans were visiting the memorial as part of Honor Flight, a non-profit that provides veterans free transport to the nation’s capital to visit the memorials to the wars they fought in.
This is not merely petty. It is a vindictive and spiteful premeditated attack on veterans. Had this been the Gay and Transgendered Protesters of Foreign Wars Memorial, Obama would have ordered a Congressional Medal of Honor recipient to stand guard over it in drag.
We got the heads up that they will be barricaded and specifically asked for an exception for these heroes, Palazzo told TheDC. We were denied and told, ˜It’s a shutdown, what do you expect?” when we contacted the liaison for the White House.
This event and ones that are most certainly in the pipeline by him and his anti-American minions are going facilitate a Concord moment if it continues which is almost guaranteed. A revolution against this premeditated assault and unwarranted disrespect for the people who Obama sees as the enemy. This alien President gets his rocks off sticking his boney, fucking middle finger in the faces of the people who made this country great.
Who orders barricades put around war memorials mere hours after a continuing resolution isn’t passed? Who? I’ll tell you who. The same motherfucker who shut off White House visits for school kids – that’s who.
One day, possibly even soon, someone is going to show him the error of his ways. They can start by sending one of his goons to the hospital. Better yet, start sending loyal members of his stenography pool to the hospital. In the spirit of “think globally, act locally”, just find one of his supporters with a bumper sticker on their car and send them to the hospital. Would you tolerate someone driving around with a Nazi symbol on their car? They didn’t care for our WWII veterans that much either.
I am not a military strategist but, if you will indulge me, how wise is it to compact so many naval assets into suchÂ a tight, hostile area to our interests on all sides?
The U.S. Navy doubled its presence in the eastern Mediterranean over the past week, effectively adding two destroyers to the three that generally patrol the region. The five destroyers are carrying a combined load of about 200 Tomahawk missiles, officials say.
Shouldn’t you, oh I don’t know, be sure that you are going to get authorization before putting all of your eggs in this basket?Â To begin, you’re telegraphing your every move which may be the point if you are a little bird who wants to puff up your little bird chest.Â However, if the vote comes down on “no” and you attack anyway then you are creating a Constitutional crisis by choice.Â If the vote comes down on “no” and you leave the area then you hand Syria a major victory over the paper tiger that is the U.S. under Barack Obama with all those destroyers making a u-turn and sailing off into the sunset of the Post-American world.
Mr Obama said any strike would be to “send a shot across the bow” and give a “pretty strong signal that [Syria] better not do it again”.
None of this makes any sense. “Send a pretty strong signal”???Â Who writes this shit?Â A leather belt sends a strong message.Â Tomahawks send death from above.
You want Assad gone but you’re not going to remove him.Â You want to spank him on the ass with Tomahawk missiles and then turn around and leave anyway?Â He’s not a dog who pissed the rug “and you better not do it again”.Â Our military is not called upon for “norm enforcement” and to be global disciplinarians.Â They are trained to kill and if needed to try and keep the peace afterwards.
Hang the albatross of Syria around Russia’s neck.Â They are the ones providing them with all of the logistical support and weapons they need to attack us and put down their bloody rebellion.Â They are the enemy.Â The operative phrase is “selling Assad weapons to attack us”.Â Putin has declared war on us by his Syrian proxy through these actions.
Not in the eyes of Barack Obama though.Â Syria is a mess to try and pin on Republicans somehow.Â You know.Â The real enemy in all of this.
If you are Russia or China, the time to attack us is now.Â They could wipe out our naval might in a day and we’d be playing catch-up for years.Â That might be the point of Obama’s consolidation of our naval fish in the Mediterranean barrel.Â If he was fine with getting Seal Team 6 killed as tribute to his Taliban “peace partners” and letting Benghazi burn so the Brotherhood could get the weapons Congress wouldn’t send to them then setting our destroyers out to be attacked sounds like it is right up his alley.
If he would invite a Muslim cleric to damn Seal Team 6 to hell at their own funeral, there is absolutely nothing beneath this traitor.
My conversational acquaintances, familiar with my knack for heresy, often comment about how if these leftards would just read Fahrenheit 451, 1984 or Brave New World that they wouldn’t be taking us down this road towards a technophilial autocratopia.
“Hell, no!”, I say.
Libertarians and conservatives generally consider those works cautionary tales.Â Liberals and Progsheviks consider them instruction manuals.Â And they don’t need any more ideas:
Sales of George Orwellâ€™s “1984” are up 69 percent on Amazon, according to a list on the website.
The book marked its 60th anniversary on June 6 amid a flurry of real-world news stories on secret government surveillance.
Amazon lists the paperback version of the sci-fi classic as the 19th biggest book on its Movers and Shakers list. The current sales rank is 110.
It’s at this point that you realize that Obama’s eternally devoted, lifelong ward of the state “Julia” is actually modeled after the 1984 character.
President Dronekiller McGitmo gets the Peace Prize.Â Pretending that the Ministry of Ethics datamining your cellphone records, rooting through tax applications and medical records is a sign of our Strength and Owning a Home, a Car and Responsibility for your own life and that of your family really is a kind of Slavery.
Â There will be no curiosity, no enjoyment of the process of life. All competing pleasures will be destroyed. But always â€” do not forget this, Winston â€” always there will be the intoxication of power, constantly increasing and constantly growing subtler. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face â€” forever.
In fact, we have long welcomed this debate on a host of subjects that we’re relentlessly prosecuting the people who mentioned them to you.
Perhaps Current TV can sponsor a new 24-hour tv show called Room 101 where we can be re-educated to stop worrying about those clanging chains called mortgages, jobs, student loans and marriages and simply focus on the one thing that binds us – Learning to Love Skinny Brother!
“He gazed up at thearrogant face. Forty years it had taken him to learn what kind of smile was hidden behind that disgusting mole next to his held-high nose. O cruel, needless misunderstanding! O stubborn, self-willed exile from the loving breast! O bama! Two gin-scented tears trickled down the sides of his nose. But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Skinny Brother.”
In fact, if you’re intent on not loving that irresistible Skinny Brother – We’re Gonna Have a Problem ™.
No kidding.Â Now you’re telling me?
“Never again will you be capable of ordinary human feeling. Everything will be dead inside you. Never again will you be capable of love, or friendship, or joy of living, or laughter, or curiosity, or courage, or integrity. You will be hollow. We shall squeeze you empty and then we shall fill you with ourselves.”
Any time and place is the right time to be lectured by Barack Obama about whatever pet issue that he’s pushing that day.
Oh.Â Did you think your graduation was about you and your hard work over the last several years?Â No, no, and one more enthusiastic no young man, lady or as yet undetermined he/she/it.
Graduation ceremonies are about the invited speaker opining to you about what really grinds their gears.Â The fact that your existence is one of them is just more guilt-laden icing on their gluten free cake:
President Obama on Friday used the issue of sexual assault in the military to illustrate to Naval Academy graduates the importance of trust and honor at a time when the public has grown weary of missteps by public servants.
â€œIt only takes the misconduct of a few to further erode peopleâ€™s trust in their government,â€ Obama told the graduates at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.
Everybody has a big screen tv in their home these days but when I was growing up you had to go sit in a movie theater to see projection that large.
Ensign No Class Barry “Choom Choom” Soetero reporting for duty 30 years too late, sir!
Now I get it!Â The public has grown weary and mistrustful of public servants because of rampant sex abuse in the Navy.Â Not unconstitutionally wiretapping the AP, James Rosen and his parents, drone strikes on US civilians, leaving Navy SEALs and ambassadors to die when you could have helped, voter suppression of Tea Party activists by the IRS or that same IRS being in charge of grabbing every citizen by the back of the head and forcing their mouths down on Obamacare’s thorny cock.
No…it was sex abuse in the military.Â Ok.Â I’ll play along.
Continuing with Obama’s theme of military personnel as unrepentant rapists, his handpicked and defense-hating Secretary of Defense blew his own rape whistle at West Point graduates this morning:
Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel told graduates of the United States Military Academy at West Point on Saturday that sexual assaults would be a â€œa profound betrayalâ€ of their oaths to the Army.
Hagel challenged the 2013 West Point graduates to â€œbe the generation of leaders who stopâ€ internal issues like sexual assaults, alcoholism and suicide, which he said were â€œdebilitating, incendiary and destructiveâ€ to the Armyâ€™s strength.
â€œSexual harassment and assault are a profound betrayal of sacred oaths and sacred trust,â€ Hagel said during his speech. â€œThis scourge must be stamped out. Weâ€™re all accountable for ensuring that this happens. We can’t fail the Army or America. We can’t fail each other.â€
*clap, clap, cla……….*Â Â Â Â Â Â *clap*
Shorter Hagel:Â You’ve completed your training.Â I’m sure it was a picnic. He’s your gun.Â Now don’t get drunk and start raping people.
I’m trying to envision this line of Graduation speeches if it was similarly applied at Morehouse.
It’s been a long six years full of countless malt liquors to achieve that Bachelors in Sociology that you’ve accumulated $40k in debt towards.Â Please do not use your educations for manufacturing crack cocaine on your way to impregnating some dumb slut who will be pushing the baby that you’re not around to raise across seven lanes of traffic from her one bedroom apartment in a dangerous neighborhood to the bus stop for her daily commute to the welfare office.
Oh, and congratulations on your hard work!Â The lifelong dream of both you and your ancestors to give me a fistbump will be administered shortly.
The difference is Obama admonishes Morehouse grads to be giving back to the community while he’s imploring military personnel to not become felonious sex offenders.
For someone whose primary work experience consisted of a Baskin-Robbins, light general office work and an occasional adjunct lecturer on his way to becoming the world’s leading amateur golfer / street ball power forward, he certainly knows how to recognize the laziness in others.
For someone who is the epitome of an affirmative action charity case, who to this day refuses to unseal his own college transcripts, he is adept at hijacking a day that so many struggled and sacrified to achieve in order to coopt it and rob it of any joy in the service of his instinctive need to hector you with his prejudices of you.
Don’t ever invite this guy to speak at your wedding.Â He’ll let you know he’s the best man and that despite all of your numerous flaws that it’s important that you not abandon each other when times get rough in the economy he created.
Again, thank you America for the gift of this self-righteous fuckwad.
Remember when low-level functionaries operating outside the law were the direct responsibility of The President and the type of lawless culture he promoted?Â I mean, it’s not applicable now since 94% of the IRS employees union donates money to Obama and the post-Modern media is incapable of making the logical conclusion that there is a correlation between that number and the shared beliefs of the two.
And even less so, since buck passing has risen in popularity over the last several years:
The Roots of Abu Ghraib
In response to the outrages at Abu Ghraib, the Bush administration has repeatedly assured Americans that the president and his top officials did not say or do anything that could possibly be seen as approving the abuse or outright torture of prisoners.
Since the Abu Ghraib scandal broke into public view, the administration has contended that a few sadistic guards acted on their own to commit the crimes we’ve all seen in pictures and videos. At times, the White House has denied that any senior official was aware of the situation, as it did with Red Cross reports documenting a pattern of prisoner abuse in Iraq. In response to a rising pile of documents proving otherwise, the administration has mounted a ”Wizard of Oz” defense, urging Americans not to pay attention to inconvenient evidence.
Today, those purveyors of Ozian prevarications are called Jay Carney, Dan Pfeiffer and David Plouffe.Â By the current definition, Abu Ghraib would have only been possible if you were able to produce timestamped e-mails from George Bush to Lynndie England advising her on her patriotic duty to point at terrorists’ junk and building gay pyramids with them.Â Anything else is just “political hay” and “distractions”.
Lying Prick:Â Lying like the prickishly, pig-snouted sociopath he is.Â Prick.
After all, Bush should have refrained from “Wizard of Oz” defenses and gone straight for the “Duh, I found out when you guys did when I read the paper this morning” defense.Â Who wouldn’t be encouraged by the current President’s seemingly drunk driving while blindfolded, hands-off-the-wheel, pedal to the metal approach to governing?Â That stupid Bush didn’t read papers but he was the personal Torquemada of systemic torture at a makeshift prison on the other side of the world when not clearing out brush on his ranch of hate.
But we know that Obama is not a hands off person.Â He’s a control freak.Â And the only time that he of a million “I, I, I, I” speeches is nowhere near the Captain’s Quarters is when there is some blame needing be placed.
We do not know how high up in the chain of command the specific sanction for abusing prisoners was given, and we may never know, because the Army is investigating itself and the Pentagon is stonewalling the Senate Armed Services Committee. It may yet be necessary for Congress to form an investigative panel with subpoena powers to find the answers.
What we have seen, topped by that legalistic treatise on torture, shows clearly that Mr. Bush set the tone for this dreadful situation by pasting a false ”war on terrorism” label on the invasion of Iraq.
Ah, yes.Â “Tone setting”.
Surely, the New York Times is positing a similar thought this weekend in the wake of widespread, years long IRS persecution of ideologically and religiously litmus-tested groups in order to quell their patriotic dissent before an election.Â Surely, their flame of outrage would burn brightly out of consistency alone!Â To do so otherwise would be bare assed hypocrisy.
NEWS that employees at the Internal Revenue Service targeted groups with â€œTea Partyâ€ or â€œpatriotâ€ in their name for special scrutiny has raised pious alarms among some lawmakers and editorial writers.
Yes, the I.R.S. may have been worse than clumsy in considering an (ed. – non-existent) avalanche of applications for nonprofit status under the tax code, and that deserves scrutiny whether or not the agencyâ€™s employees were spurred by partisan motives. After all, some of these â€œtea partyâ€ groups are most likely not innocent nonprofit organizations devoted to the cultural significance of hot beverages â€” or to other, more civic, virtues. Rather, they and others are groups that may be illegally spending a majority of their resources on political activity while manipulating the tax code to hide their donors and evade taxes (the unwritten rule being that no more than 49 percent of a groupâ€™s resources can be used for political purposes).
For the people who demand that you provide videotaped confessions, time stamped e-mails and caught-red-handed evidence that Obama had absolutely nothing to do with he political targeting of his enemies and of which he was the direct beneficiary of that persecution, they certainly have no problem proclaiming allegations of tax evasion of nefarious motives to the victims in this instance while excusing the IRS perpetrators as merely “clumsy” with zero evidence whatsoever.
Where was this caveat as to the inherent guilt of those Abu Ghraib prisoners?Â Were those prison guards not laboring under conditions worse than the cubicle dwelling paper miners at the IRS?
Congress has already announced hearings and investigations, and the serviceâ€™s leadership will be grilled, as it should be. But it would be a travesty if the misdeeds here undermined the important work that must now be done to foster greater transparency, and to bolster confidence that the I.R.S. is in fact scrutinizing politically active groups across the board, regardless of their ideological bent.
Citizens need to rest assured that the integrity of our political system is intact.
As opposed to publishing inflammatory pictures and making unsubstantiated allegations in bad faith that sexual abuse of enemy combantants was demanded from on high in order to enflame Islamic fundamentalists to attack our service people because you wanted to lay blame for low-level military personnel’s behavior at the feet of the Commander-In-Chief with the non-preferred party letter after their name.Â In order to “assure the integrity of our political system”.
If it wasn’t for double standards, the New York Times would have no standards at all.
UPDATE:Â Even a stodgey old hack like Bob Schieffer finally had enough of the aforementioned Capital “P” Prick Dan Pfeiffer’s bald-faced obfuscations this morning.Â When the Wilford Brimley of the Obama’s old media water carriers starts telling you to you to your stupid oinking face that you are sounding like Nixon during Watergate, it might be time to reverse course on demanding that Republicans apologize for impugning the reputation of Susan Rice for lying to the American People on five morning talk shows in a row.
You know, Dan.Â Can I call you Dan?Â Gunga Dan.Â Your boss, Mr. Post-Racial, was at the race-based Morehouse College explaining to their graduating future welfare recipients that they are going to have to work “twice as hard” as white people just “to get by”.Â That means that they would have to lie twice as hard as you to be in your position.Â Hard to even imagine how that’s possible.
Exit question.Â Why can’t anyone call a lie a “lie” anymore?Â It’s dolled up in euphemisms like “you’re not telling the truth” or providing some golden bridge excuse for a lack of honesty.Â When you’re a liar, you’re a liar.Â Capital “L”, little “i”, little “a”, little “r”.Â Liar.Â Dan The Lying Prickface Pfeiffer.Â End of story.
But I do understand how in this economy of your boss’s making that a House Cracka gotta eat and if it means going on tv and mouthing a few of Master’s lies to let you back on the porch that Obama’s House Crackas gotta do what a cracka gotta do.Â You’re a better man than I, Gunga Dan.
Where you are I do not know exactly.Â Please watch your head.
So much for the optimistic tone of my last post!
Something happened today and I have not fully processed it yet.Â Cold Fury keeps this quote running in the sidebar and I think that a chronological milestone may have just been passed with this IRS scandal:
“America is at that awkward stage. It’s too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.” â€“ Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do ‘Til the Revolution
I’ll let you guess which one.
We seem to have a comprehension problem with the media.Â Benghazi is not about people who messed up the note cards on the way to the tv station and this IRS scandal is not about a couple of “rogue” newbies asking a couple of Tea Party yahoos where they bought their tri-cornered hats.
The IRS is in the opening stages of being exposed for the most massive effort of state-sponsored Voter Suppression since the Jim Crow South instituted poll taxes.Â As they were suing states for attempting to maintain the integrity of their elections by simply asking voters to show ID, there was wholesale harassment, intimidation and suppression by a cast of hundreds to thousands of government employees at several agencies within the federal government authorized and, of course, condoned at the highest levels to discriminatorily deny the rights of peaceable citizens to express their political speech by demanding personal information that was incredibly invasive and Stalin-esque in execution.Â The practictioners of which have since been rewarded with bonuses and promotions.Â If there is ever an opening for Concentration Camp Czar it’s going to be a real contest to find out which is the most amoral sociopath at the IRS chomping at the bit to try out their Commandant Amon Goeth fantasy against conservatives.
What is the content of your prayers?Â I will approve your application if you sign this form saying you will never protest against Planned Parenthood.Â We need access to login to your website and review all chats, logs and IP addresses.
If you do not see a problem with that – you are not a liberal.Â You are, in fact, a fucking Nazi sympathizer if not a full-fledged party member.
Confidential tax information was then being solicited or received – gratefully unsolicited – and used by Obama in his campaign and affiliated minions.Â If you come into my home and you find a bunch of Picassos and Rembrandts on the wall and you know I don’t make that kind of bread – just how do you think I came to acquire them?Â The same way the Obama campaign came to get tax information against Romney and any candidate – illegally.Â Receiving stolen merchandise is illegal and just as this tax information that was unscrupulously gained is the fruit of that forbidden tree.
While I am always good for a rant, I don’t think I am being hyperbolic in saying that the news of today has
just invalidated definitely calls into question the results of the 2012 election.Â Several government agencies, under the aegis of the Executive Branch, with malice aforethought targeted US citizens seeking to engage in political speech on a national levelÂ and at seemingly inconceivable numbers.Â If people knew what was going on, and there were plenty of people in the Obama administration who verifiably did and lied under oath to Congress about it, then November 2012 would not have turned out the way it did.Â Just like if they knew that when that 3 am phone call from Benghazi came with the Ambassador screaming for help that Obama hung up the phone and sent everything after to voicemail.
The integrity ofÂ the 2012 election was raped and because we are finding out about it after the fact – they will claim that we cannot abort the rape baby of Obama’s second term.Â It’s a choice not a child, ya’ll.
A cult of corruption passed the Kool-Aid around the IRS, the Treasury Department and the Department of Justice, along with White House counsel and the American public has just now set their eyes upon the Jonestown where these loyal bureaucratic partisans have committed the largest act of state-assisted suicide.Â Both of their careers, their credibility and the faith that any citizen can have that their government is not an active enemy to their very existence.Â If you’ve ever listened to the final audio tapes from Jonestown you can almost hear the wails and religious fervor now – “We have to do this…if the Tea Party wins like they did in 2010, they are going to overturn Obamacare! We can’t let that happen.Â We’ve come too far!”
And you trust them with your healthcare?Â You voted against gay marriage Mr. Smith, I guess you’re not going to be getting that heart transplant since it’s clear by your voting record that you don’t have one to begin with.
People are being audited after the government encouraged their neighbors to turn their names in to Fight The Smears website.Â All of their computers should be seized and an audit should be performed of every name submitted to that organization who was subsequently harassed by the IRS.
I do not know where this goes from here.Â When people know that laws are used to shield the perpetrators and that justice will forever be denied then what redress do they have?Â You have seen the Obama reaction this week.Â They pretended to make one person fall on their sword when they were going to retire in a few weeks anyway.Â It’s not even a scandal at all really.Â It’s an opportunity!Â And we need to get the IRS more money so they can fix it.
This is an outright civil rights assault on half of the country that is continuing to this day.Â This is not some past event.Â It is going on right now with everyone being held hostage by the IRS.
They thought they would have your guns by now.
Without a swift acknowledgment of the depth of this scandal, with enough firings at all of those agencies to make the unemployment number go up, I am concerned that something very bad is going to happen.Â The indifferent arrogance of the Executive Branch, painfully feigning outrage at this premeditated attack on the First Amendment and the cover-up that followed is going to provoke a reaction that does not bear a resemblance to a march and sign-holding.
Genuine concern.Â This is a bureaucratic version of Waco.Â I don’t want to live in whatever this place is that we are living in right now though I had my suspicions that this is what it would look like.Â Almost as much as I don’t want to live in this place if someone more offended than me starts doing incredibly rash things that naturally gives these brownshirts the cover for grabbing even more power.Â Or, if one succeeded in registering their umbrage in a way that results in every elementary, middle and high school being named after Barack Hussein Obama from here until the end of the country.Â However short that is about to be.
For someone who runs their mouth a lot, I am at a loss for words at the moment about what happens next.Â Obviously, a skilled special prosecutor should be called in immediately and a class-action lawsuit should be filed by every one of these groups and individuals that have been audited.Â Â There also needs to be an immediate seizure of control over the IRS as it is a crime scene and oversight should be administered by someone who can be trusted.Â I have no idea who that would be and Obama is incapable of naming that person because it is clear that he does not know anyone who isn’t a crook, a communist or a crony.Â Or a combination of all three.
Awww, leftovers again?
For those who only watch US based news, it is a true testament to the absolute immoral authority of the American media that the crimes of Philadelphia “doctor” Kermit Gosnell have gone without mention in any major newspapers or television networks.Â And for all of the shame heaped on Dr. Ben Carson for his comments on gay marriage, somehow he is in the news and this so-called doctor doesn’t even warrant a mention in passing:
Gosnell, 72, is charged with murdering seven babies at Philadelphia Women’s Medical Society and with the death of the woman, who suffered cardiac arrest after she was given too much anesthesia.
Chances of Obama inviting the victims of Dr. Gosnell on Air Force One to promote greater regulation of the abortion industry?Â Less than zero.Â If he’d eat a dog then a tasty baby would be right up the alley he cheerfully sends these kids to be slaughtered in.
None dare call it The War On Women.Â If they did the pro-abortion crowd could at least label the death of Karnamaya Mongar as friendly fire.Â Can’t make an abortion omelet without accidentally euthanizing the occasional egg factory with too much anesthesia.Â You see a woman’s body is like a termite infested house and once in a while you have to drop a tent over it to gas out the pests.
On the bright side, those nasty conservatives kept their laws of her body.Â On the dark side, those sainted liberals allow Gosnell’s hands all over it.
A Grand Jury report said the clinic was crawling with cats and reeking of animal urine and feces. Furniture and blankets were stained with blood and instruments were not properly sterilized.
Disturbingly, the report alleged that fetal remains were stuffed into: ‘cabinets, in the basement, in a freezer, in jars and bags and plastic jugs’.
‘It would rain fetuses. Fetuses and blood all over the place. It is literally a beheading. It is separating the brain from the body,’ one former employee Stephen Massof toldÂ NBC.
But he said he believed the intentions of his boss were honest and that the doctor believed he was helping the women, often extremely poor, who came to him.
If you read that last paragraph and understand the diseased mind of liberals then you know immediately that their first thoughts would run to concern over the cats and animal cruelty.
And not a one would think that Gosnell is anything more than an aberration.Â What doctor taking a Hippocratic Oath gets up in the morning, chest swelling with righteous purpose, at the thought of cutting off the head of a baby with a pair of scissors knowing that it could survive if born prematurely?Â Only a monster.Â And this world is filled with them.
I mean who doesn’t have all the cabinets and drawers of their office stuffed full of dead babies if not a monster?Â The recycling bins cover everything don’t they?Â Recycling, composting and waste.Â These dismembered children qualify at least as waste don’t they?Â Crazy Kermit’s House of Discount Abortion skimps on disposal fees and passes their savings on to you!
Like the others, the high school student was given absurd responsibilities: performing ultrasounds, giving patients drugs, and helping with the surgeries. While Tina Baldwin and Lewis had attended the Thompson Institute and received rudimentary medical training, only Baldwn received a certificate of completion â€” in 2009, near the end of her tenure. Williams, in helping with procedures, would allegedly deliver babies, born fully alive, and then sever their spinal cords â€” as she had learned from the doctor. Sherry West, a former patient of Gosnellâ€™s, was diagnosed Hepatitis C and never used gloves or other sanitary precautions when touching patients, administering IVs and drawing blood.
Savings galore!Â Assuming you don’t catch Hep C on your first visit and aren’t accidentally murdered by the 15 year old teenager administering your sedatives.Â Unsurprisingly, administering drugs is the only reason why Gosnell was discovered and the sole reason why his office was raided before they unwittingly uncovered this horror show.
The trial is in its fourth week and is expected to last another month. If Gosnell is found guilty he could be given the death penalty.
Eight clinic employees have pleaded guilty to various charges, while a ninth is on trial with Gosnell.
The death penalty??? For an abortion doctor?Â What kind of sweet, poetic justice is this?Â The only thing that could make it better is if every registered Democrat got the same sentence.Â They are all just as guilty as Gosnell.Â They all endorse his line of work if not his hygiene.Â If Kathy Boudin can get a plum teaching assignment then Eric Rudolph should be able to form his own political action committee.
Where are the pictures?Â As I understand liberalism, we can’t have an honest discussion about Sandy Hook until we can see some pictures of dead kids.Â How about some pictures of these little angels who had their wings clipped by scissors to the brain and exterminated as if they were subhuman vermin.
The absence of this story as front page news in any major US newspaper or television station is because it is an indictment of liberalism itself.Â We have to get updates from the British press because the American media is so biased that the penumbra imaginarily emanating from the Constitution to sanction taxpayer funded killing of your child must be protected at all costs while the explicitly established right to protect yourself is subject to an up-or-down vote after the requisite grandstanding from the Emotional Bully-In-Chief.
By God, you’re proud of your “choice”.Â I can tell.Â So proud that it must never see the light of day.
A lot of people seem to be putting their already half-cracked and dripping eggs into the Ben Carson Basket.Â This fount of inspiration.Â A probable religious liberal whose one-time dressing down of Obama over his healthcare law has earned him The Free Pass from the fair denizens of Hannitry.Â But the measure of someone is how much they are willing to stand for their convinctions.Â And when it comes to Carson telling people what they need to hear when they need to hear it – this isn’t particularly encouraging:
A pediatric neurosurgeon who has become the darling of conservatives since speaking against nationalized healthcare is now under fire for comments he made about same-sex marriage.
Dr. Benjamin Carson told MSNBCâ€™s â€œAndrea Mitchell Reportsâ€ on Friday that he would be willing to step down as commencement speaker at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine after faculty and students signed petitions asking that he not speak.
â€œI would say this is their day, and the last thing I would want to do is rain on their parade,â€ Carson told Mitchell.
Carson said in the interview that he has not notified the university he wonâ€™t be speaking. â€œI am waiting for appropriate channels,â€ he said. â€œI donâ€™t think television is the appropriate channel.â€
I don’t get it.Â You just told everybody you’re not doing it but you’re waiting for the right moment to tell them that you don’t want to face a potentially hostile audience for a commencement address?
One of the petitions, quoted by The Hill newspaper, reads: â€œWe retain the highest respect for Dr. Carsonâ€™s achievements and value his right to publicly voice political views. Nevertheless, we feel that these expressed values are incongruous with the values of Johns Hopkins and deeply offensive to a large proportion of our student body.â€
So a speaker should only reflect the views of the majority?Â That’s a good lesson.
How is this any different than any conservative college graduate who has to sit through the insufferable pap of the Oprah Winfreys, Nancy Pelosis or other leftarded savants who litter the April/May blogfeeds when they hijack every college commencement speech and slam it into the twin towers of Respect For The Opinions of Others and Respect For The Work of the Graduates.
Was Carson’s commencement address supposed to be about gay marriage?Â I thought it should be something more along the lines of how “despite all your hardwork you have to learn how to deal with disappointment and not getting your way all the time”.Â Or maybe, “in the course of the rest of your life you will come into contact with many people who don’t agree with you on every issue”.
Now would be the perfect time for that lesson since it’s painfully obvious they haven’t learned it in 5-10 years of college.
Regardless, Carson’s decision to quit should give anyone pause.Â If he’s not willing to fight (if by fight you mean give a speech) for his right to his own beliefs how would he parlay that into steadfastness in fighting for yours.
There are very few neurosurgeons in the world.Â Â He just might know something other than gay marriage to talk to these overextended, undereducated, intolerant future unemployables about.Â But we’ll never know because he’s a quitter who is trying to pass off cowardice for respect of the opinions of people who have no respect for his.
Respect is a two-way street and Carson is content to let the thugs hog the road.Â Don’t want to interrupt your good time with something you need to hear.Â These are critical oppotunities that leaders never let pass.
Would you trust one of these thugs to operate on you if they knew your beliefs differed from there’s?Â We only operate on those whoseÂ political views reflect that of the majority of our distinct geographic proximity.
They need to be told the truth to their stupid faces at least once to say they got their money’s worth.Â He may be able to heal damaged corpus callosum of a kid but when it comes to winning the minds of of the adult children Carson has conceded that he is not the man for the job.
How you been? Good.
Last night we got to witness THE perfect contrast between the (admittedly tiny) freedom-loving wing of the GOP and the old guard of gutless country-club grifters.
On one hand, you had Paul, Lee and Cruz questioning whether or not it was wise to give the executive branch the freedom to assassinate its own citizens with drones. A simple question really. When your leaders are soulless idealogues, perhaps this type of power should be carefully considered before being handed out like popsicles at a 6-year-old’s pool party.
On the other, you had McShame, Lispy and our own beloved Corker breaking bread with the very same commie who has repeatedly pretended to play nice while turning around and stabbing them all in the back as soon as the cameras show up. If I were dumber, I would say that these Senators are simply naiive, but these jackals are in it for themselves as they’ve always been. I hope they kissed his ring as they entered.
The meeting is part of Obamaâ€™s sudden new outreach to Republicans. He invited the senators to the dinner, and he has also asked House Budget Committee Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) to have lunch with him at the White House today. The committeeâ€™s ranking member, Democratic Rep. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, will also join them.
Emerging from the gathering, Sen. John McCain of Arizona gave reporters the thumbs up, as did Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, who was close to Obama when the two served together in the Senate. No word on whether they were referencing the food or the meeting.
Our one-party political crime syndicate continues apace. Thank God for the few who are still willing to buck the system in the midst of a massive lost cause.
Just in case you’re not clear on the situation or have been living under a rock for 8 years, McShame and Lispy (as well as Lamar! and the rest of the crew) need to go. Yesterday. They are the cancer. Paul/Cruz/Lee are the chemo.
I wonder why Obama has refrained from chiming in on Bob Menendez’s sex / corruption scandal?Â When Travyon got shot, you had to file a restraining order to keep him away from the cameras so he could comment on his imaginary son.Â You know, Obama’s Imaginary Son!Â The one who looks just like Travyon so he knows that he was killed in cold-blood because he’s black.Â Or the Imaginary Son who he would let Moochelle perform radical gynoplasty on to prevent him from playing football so he won’t get concussed.
Meanwhile, Obama does happen to have two underage daughters which left me wondering.Â If Obama’s daughters were underaged Dominican prostitutes, would he let Bob Menendez have sex with them?
Just asking.Â Maybe that’s why he sends so much security with them when they go on Spring Break.Â Got to keep shoo-ing Menendez away like the flies on their vajajays.Â If they lick ice cream cones like their father we could set them on a street corner and work off the national debt.
The War On Women is evidently on shore leave. Â Maybe Lilly Ledbetter would like to watch.
Of course, Menendez will not be forced to retire because using the State Department to strongarm a foreign government into unjustly rewarding your biggest campaign contributor / underage teen hooker’s pimp is never enough for the average scumsucking, no soul having Democrap.Â As they openly suggest:
In a state with a colorful history, it takes a lot for a New Jersey politician to cross the line into political toxicity.
Democratic Sen. Robert Menendez has found himself at the center of a growing controversy, with accusations swirling of a questionable friendship with a Florida eye surgeon being investigated for Medicare fraud, improper flights to the Dominican Republic and alleged patronizing of prostitutes â€” including underage girls â€” while in the Caribbean nation.
â€œSix years is a long time,â€ said Democratic former Sen. Robert Torricelli , who left the Senate a decade ago under his own ethics cloud. â€œI think Bob Menendez is a very tenacious person, and he has the advantage of six long years and a fairly forgiving political environment in New Jersey.
â€œI wouldnâ€™t be wasting time on a Bob Menendez political obituary,â€ he added.
The prostitution allegations surrounding Menendez partially came to light before last Novemberâ€™s election, when he won with 58 percent of the vote. Menendez has fervently denied the allegations, and the Justice Department wasnâ€™t publicly investigating the case at that time.
Say it with me – “What difference does it make?!?”Â We seem to be alternating between “What difference does it make?” and “If it saves just one child.”Â It seems to matter which day of the week you try to pin down where a liberal’s self-righteous indignation and “Have you no decency, sir?” bullshit lies.
Be honest with us Bob.Â When you were coming on those underaged Dominican girls’ faces – were you thinking of Obama’s daughters?
