Belated Weekend Must Reads

Daniel Greenfield takes a blow torch to Obama’s trolling treason and doublethink version of Patriotism. Greenfield has quickly become one of my top three favorite reads because of columns just like that one.

Ross Douthat’s “Caesarism Without Apology” begs to be fired from the New York Times for telling the truth to the stupid faces of their commenters about the imperial nature of their favorite cocksucking (I mean benevolent) dickhead (I mean dictator). Just kidding. I mean cocksucking dickhead.

Maureen Dowd finally hits publish on this surprisingly vicious and catty blog screed against Hillary Clinton that she’s been saving ever since Bill came in her hair back in 2002.

Finally, I have to say that I’m enjoying what seems to be a transformation of Instapundit into a pissed off, right-leaning, libertarian and this particular take on the OU/SAE Fraternity racist video flap.

May everyone enjoy their enemies who give them opportunity to mount their wildest horses to hurl their spears.

I Hope Glenn Kessler Gets Splinters

…Shoving all those Pinocchios where the sun doesn’t shine.

That’s two in your stink and two in your pink:

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.

Thank God Almighty We Have A Patriotic Christian Running This Country

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.

Jester, Jester Truth Molester

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.

An IRS Full of Lynndie Englands

Lynndie England

Remember when low-level functionaries operating outside the law were the direct responsibility of The President and the type of lawless culture he promoted?  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

Published: June 09, 2004

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.  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.  Anything else is just “political hay” and “distractions”.

Lying Prick

Lying Prick:  Lying like the prickishly, pig-snouted sociopath he is.  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.  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?  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.  He’s a control freak.  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.  “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.  Surely, their flame of outrage would burn brightly out of consistency alone!  To do so otherwise would be bare assed hypocrisy.

NEWS that employees at the Internal Revenue Service targeted groups with “Tea Party” or “patriot” 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 agency’s employees were spurred by partisan motives. After all, some of these “tea party” groups are most likely not innocent nonprofit organizations devoted to the cultural significance of hot beverages — 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 group’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?  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 service’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.  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:  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.  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.  Can I call you Dan?  Gunga Dan.  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”.  That means that they would have to lie twice as hard as you to be in your position.  Hard to even imagine how that’s possible.

Exit question.  Why can’t anyone call a lie a “lie” anymore?  It’s dolled up in euphemisms like “you’re not telling the truth” or providing some golden bridge excuse for a lack of honesty.  When you’re a liar, you’re a liar.  Capital “L”, little “i”, little “a”, little “r”.  Liar.  Dan The Lying Prickface Pfeiffer.  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.  You’re a better man than I, Gunga Dan.

Extreme Image Makeover: NYT Boston Bomber Edition

It’s been a week so let’s do this.  We can’t hold our tongues any longer.

The fifth column fourth estate has been pulling their hair out this week to invent some way to explain away the tag team terrorist Tsarnaev family’s violent lashing out for reasons heretofore unknown.

Was it brain injuries from boxing?  Umm, no.  Given how many people box at the amateur and professional level it seems like more would have built pressure cooker bombs before that connection could be made.

Did McDonald’s get their order wrong?  Do they hate Boston Baked Beans?  Perhaps they were Jets fans and just wanted to strike out on Patriot’s Day.  Terrorists do tend to love jets.

This piece of revisionist filth regurgitated by the New York Times onto the graves of the people murdered takes the cake though.  I am warning authorities in advance not to allow any New York Times fanfictioneers to have access to the surviving jihadi because that cake will most certainly have a file in it:

 BOSTON — It was a blow the immigrant boxer could not withstand: after capturing his second consecutive title as the Golden Gloves heavyweight champion of New England in 2010, Tamerlan Anzorovich Tsarnaev, 23, was barred from the national Tournament of Champions because he was not a United States citizen.

That’s the opening line.  The Narrative is congealing at room temperature much like the Times Reporters IQs.  This meek, innocent little lamb in our strange and confusing country (that didn’t ask him to come by the way) was terribly wronged by our immigration policy.

You know what’s a blow some people can’t stand?  I mean besides not being able to participate in a sport.  Losing your leg.  Or  a child.  Or his sister.  Or a parent because some deranged lunatics decided to detonate bombs at a public event of patriotic significance to hurt as many random people as possible.

Your mileage may vary but typically someone dying rates higher than some alleged sporting event snub.  Not in the morally equivalent universe of the New York Times though.  Having said that, I never made the school basketball team.  Would it be acceptable if I murdered the first 100 commenters in any given New York Times thread?

The cocksure fighter, a flamboyant dresser partial to white fur and snakeskin, had been looking forward to redeeming the loss he suffered the previous year in the first round, when the judges awarded his opponent the decision, drawing boos from spectators who considered Mr. Tsarnaev dominant.

His aspirations frustrated, he dropped out of boxing competition entirely, and his life veered in a completely different direction.

So much for overcoming adversity.  The only thing “cock” that I am sure about is that the New York Times wants to suck his.

His girlfriend at the time had called 911, “hysterically crying,” to say he had beaten her up, according to the Cambridge police report. Mr. Tsarnaev told the officers that he had slapped her face because she had been yelling at him about “another girl.”

Eventually, charges against him would be dismissed, the records show, so the episode would not have endangered his eventual citizenship application.

*Pfew*  Lucky us.  The article blithely notes how this fabled *heavyweight* Golden Glove boxer used his petite wife as a punching bag.  The wife who gave him a child and who, outside of gubmint welfare, was financially supporting his lazy ass while he was cheating on her.  Unimportant details.  I know.  There is apparently a Tomb of the Unknown Victim in the War on Women as written by the NYT.

Mr. Tsarnaev portrayed his quitting as a reflection of the sport’s incompatibility with his growing devotion to Islam. But as dozens of interviews with friends, acquaintances and relatives from Cambridge to Dagestan showed, that devotion, and the suspected radicalization that accompanied it, was a path he followed most avidly only after his more secular dreams were dashed in 2010 and he was left adrift.

So Islamic Terrorism can be solved by Midnight Basketball.  Is that the gist of this?

His wife primarily supported the family through her job as a home health aide, scraping together about $1,200 a month to pay the rent. While she worked, Mr. Tsarnaev looked after their daughter, Zahira, who was learning to ride the tricycle still parked beside the house, neighbors said.

One blows them up and the other visits their home twice a week to change their bedpans.  They’ve got all the bases covered.

As Salaam A-Sweetback.  So where did the BMWs and Mercedes come from?  How does one “survive” on $1200 a month for a family of three and he’s driving a luxury sedan?  Or not work.  You’re fit to box but not to lift one?

The NYT’s piece drones on for three more full length pages of hagiogaphy of this premeditated murderer of innocent men, women and children in an effort to redeem his terrorist attack into a cudgel to use against Republicans for not wanting to bless 30 million illegal aliens with citizenship, welfare checks and Obamaphones.

The connection couldn’t be any clearer as to the cause of the Boston Tea Party Massacre.  It was a cry for help on Immigration Reform!  As for his radicalization, we’ll have to blame the pedantry of the government that is preparing to run our healthcare for that one I guess:

After his return (from Russia and Dagestan), Mr. Tsarnaev applied for American citizenship, a year after he was eligible to do so. But the F.B.I. investigation, though closed, had caused his application to be stalled. Underscoring how detached he had become, he no longer had any valid passport, or international travel document, and Cambridge, to which he had a hard time readapting, was now his de facto home more than ever.

You didn’t complete your form in time Mr. Jihadi.  I hope observing our passport rules does not cause you to become “detached” or have trouble “re-adapting” to our incredibly flawed country that has let you down in so many other ways yet still allowed you back for some reason.

He grew a five-inch beard, which he shaved off before the bombings, and interrupted prayers at his mosque on two occasions with outbursts denouncing the idea that Muslims should observe American secular holidays. He engaged neighbors in affable conversations about skiing one week and heated ones about American imperialism the next.

In other words, your average New York Times reader.

At a neighborhood pizzeria, wearing a head covering that matched his jacket, he explained to Albrecht Ammon, 18, that “the Koran is great and flawless, and the Bible is ripped off from the Koran, and the U.S. used the Bible as an excuse to invade different countries.”

If only there had been some clue.  If only there is some way we could determine what made him go off?  What did *we* do wrong to him?  This is clearly our fault.  Our battered women’s shelter of a country.  We can change him.  We know we can!

“I asked him about radical Muslims that blow themselves up and say, ‘It’s for Allah,’ ” Mr. Ammon said. “And he said he wasn’t one of those Muslims.”

Clearly someone asked the right questions and clearly someone lied.

Like how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Pop, the world may never know the countless ways America failed the Tsarnaev family.  Luckily, the New York Times is there to explain  it to us.  It was not radical Islam that blew up those Boston Marathoners, it was Washington gridlock on immigration and the country that callously gave him political asylum, a life, a child and enough free handouts to allow him to afford white furs, snakeskins, designer clothes and luxury cars but not allow him to professionally punch people other than his wife.

From this point forward, we should cut all that shit out and manage the immigrating scum of the Earth’s expectations accordingly so that they are not let down if their dreams are dashed upon the rocks of reality.

The streets are paved with blood and bone.  Abandon hope all who enter.  We are a nation of immigrants but it was the last batch that made it that way.

Post Script:  But Rick Perry is solely responsible for that plant explosion in Waco.  Terrorists aren’t responsible.  Politicians are!

Except for the Boston terrorists.  They’re still not responsible and certainly not Obama/Schumer/McCain/Rubio come-one-come-all even if you’re on a terrorist watchlist approach.

The Shortest Straw Has Been Drawn For You

And you’re welcome.

I always love Yahoo’s trashy “list” pieces.  Which cars get better mileage than a Prius.  Five vodka cocktails that aren’t lame.  How many dildoes can Kim Kardashian stuff in her Coach bag.

Oddly enough, this one caught my eye:

The Next 4 Years:  Show us what you want changed in Obama’s Second Term

Sadly, no dramatic re-enactments from Ford Theater made the list or Obama defecting to Venezuela to take Hugo Chavez’s place.

What are your hopes for the next four years? President Barack Obama begins his second term in office on Jan. 20, with a hefty number of important issues facing the nation, including:

* Immigration reform
* Gun control
* Federal spending
* Environmental protection
* Gay marriage
* A changing military
* Education reform
* Health care
* Afghanistan
* Washington gridlock

What do these issues mean to you?

Yahoo News is asking you to help us tell this story. Here’s how you can participate:

Gee.  What is missing from that list?  As usual with the insulated Obamatards, JOBS are somehow no longer a problem.

I mean the unemployment rate has been jerryrigged to under 8% so everything’s coming up Milhouse.

everything is coming up milhouse

But it does read like the Donald Kaul column demanding that we do something about a million things that don’t matter while assassinating the few people who are trying to protect the most important check in the  Constitution. Littered with Obamanian false premises leading to the narrowly defined false choice “answers” that will scupper your simple minds in to acknowledging.  We’ve got to do something about guns because a crazy person got one and did something bad.  And if you don’t then you want kids to die.

How many get into a car everyday?  Why are cars made to drive faster than the speed limit?  Why are beers served in sizes and alcohol contents so great as to get you over the legal limit with one?  Why, why, why does personal freedom stand in the way saving Just One Life ™.  Because if we could limit all of those things and save one life It Would Be Worth It.

The only difference is that Obama typically asserts that everyone, even his detractors somehow, a majority of them agree with him but – darnit – just can’t bring themselves to applaud how right he is out of petty politics.

It’s like a rapist demanding you admit that he’s got staying power and stamina for days.  You’re welcome.

One thing I’d like on the list is for Obama to get off the furking golf course and get Harry Reid to pass a budget for the first time in five years.  Also, not on the list.   Quit nominating traitors to key positions.  Quit looting the Treasury to fatten his union thugs.  Quit negotiating with terrorists behind our backs.  Quit instructing troops to give more sensitivity to the Taliban than Obama gives to half the country.  Or maybe, just someone in the media telling him or the first Wookie that there are actually numerous areas of our personal lives that don’t demand the invasive penis of government being thrust into reluctant anus of a public that would like to be left alone.

I know I speak for Obama when I say that everyone wants government up their asses.  Particularly his government, whose penis/executive orders they love, but just can’t bring themselves to admit it.

As long as we’re making up stuff that’s never going to happen…what do you wish would change in Obama’s second term?

 

Time Magazine Names Adam Lanza Person Of The Year

Sure he’s late to the party and kept to himself.  Mostly.

But there’s no denying that Lanza is Time’s gender neutral “Person” of the Year.

The competition was already murder.  Between Mohammed Morsi, Kim Jong-Un, Sandra Fluke, The Undocumented American – it wasn’t the quantity of people killed but the quality.

What this lanky, saucer eyed mass murderer has done is greater than any Arab Spring.  He’s ushered in the American Fall and the movement to repeal the 2nd Amendment to the United States Constitution.   Many great progressives died on that battlefield of non-gunshot related injuries but it took one brave, differently abled young man to succeed where so many others failed.  With each round he pumped into those elementary school children, our hearts skipped a beat and swelled with pride.  His gun may have been in those cherubic faces but his name was on everyone’s tongue.

What’s he doing??? What’s he wearing??? Ya know?  What makes him tick?  Was his mother a drunk redneck who got what she deserved?

Like watching a young child learn to ride a bicycle, the smile on our faces grew as we watched our own country maturing before our eyes in realization that gun ownership is just plain wrong.  Even hardcore rightwing Republicans like Joe Scarborough and Michael Bloomberg or avid Democrat hunters like Joe Manchin could not deny the tidal wave of change – statistics be damned.

The usual rapid fire NRA put it’s guns in the ground and observed a weeklong silence in agreement that they were totally responsible for what happened.

The sacrifice those kids made for the good of the nation is greater than any fingerpaint or prom they were going to attend.  With each little coffin being delivered to the funeral home we clinked our champagne glasses and toasted Adam Lanza. After all, you can’t make a firearm outlawing omelet without gunning down a few 29th trimester fetuses.  To be certain, we washed the champagne down with bittersweet tears.

No other candidate could even come close to having such a positive impact on our world while making us completely re-evaluate our longheld position on homeschooling.

On behalf of the entire Mainstream Media Complex, we’d like to extend our highest honor to Adam Lanza.  Time Magazine’s Person of the Year.

Cheers,

The Time Magazine Editorial Board

Who Isn’t Responsible For The Sandy Hook Slaughter?

If experience has taught me anything it is that the actual shooter cannot be held responsible for what happened.  Obviously.  Jared Loughner was not responsible.  Sarah Palin was.  Timothy McVeigh wasn’t responsible.  Rush Limbaugh was.   Lee Harvey Oswald wasn’t responsible.  Lyndon Johnson was – but I digress on that point.  We can’t pass the Adam Lanza Registration Act or wargame the Cuckoobird Matrix to see which fine, upstanding Liberal Arts major is going to come down with a case of the shooties or stabbies.

What poor, disaffected youth was not hugged enough – or maybe hugged too much!  Like Goldlilocks, we can’t find that “just right” balance.

So who is to blame? Because, by God, We Have To Do Something…Anything ™.  Preferably before this crisis has gone to waste.  We can discern how the media will react since it’s a rerun.

Like all good fascists, Michael Moore tried to disarm all Americans in Bowling for Columbine after another couple of pampered blue-state rejects decided to shoot up their high school.  A shooting that would later be glamorized in the television series An American Horror Story that sought to humanize the school shooter.  Expect the cavalcade of hypocritical Hollywood A listers to flaunt their high school diplomas too as they make a living in tv and movies where they blow through more ammo on the big screen than they do cocaine in their personal lives.

Violent TV Shows and Music Officially Not Responsible For Anything you blameshifting gun nutters.

Over the years everything from goth culture, violent video games, movies, music, prozac, adderall, gangster rap and somehow rightwing radio seems to catch the blame for the thousand failures they weren’t.  None of which are going to be blamed this time.  With the exception of Rush Limbaugh who is responsible for everything bad that happens in the world.

Don’t Do What Darth Did.

Not this time though.  The fix was in before the killer was wrongly identified.  It was automatic assault rifles that were banned but are now flooding the schoolyards (OMG!!! The Children!) even though no one outside of a gun dealer can own an automatic weapon.  And in the meantime, every amateur Pat Robertson will hammer the square peg of their pet cause into the bullethole of reality.

On the right and the left.  Unashamed exhibitionists flogging themselves senseless in full view of The Children!!!(tm) everywhere to this XXX-rated grief porn until the waterworks squirt like the cathartic money shot.

None will ever ask why is it the “gun free” zones seem to be attacked so frequently or that the people who demand that you be defenseless in order to frequent their business or forced to attend their school bear no responsiblity for protecting you when you do so.

We’re just having a dialogue don’t you know?  A dialogue that always supports infringing on the Bill of Rights in order to protect the powerful instead of meaningful reforms to bad laws that can ultimately protect future victims.  Now that would be a revolutionary act in the age of the stupid and opportunistic.

Absolute Moral Authority: I’ll See Your Sheehan And Raise You A SEAL

For instructional purposes, let’s assume every Leftist calling themselves a “Democrat” is suffering from Stage 4 Obamnesia and are having a hard time understanding why the Benghazi debacle is such a big deal.  Most US Ambassadors to other nations aren’t signing up for a suicide mission.  Chris Stevens certainly wasn’t and neither were the few protectors he was given.  Much fewer protectors than Valerie Jarrett I might add even though he was in a war zone of Commander Leave-No-Drone-Behind’s making.

The father of a former Navy SEAL killed in the Libya terror attack last month said Friday that U.S. officials who denied a request for help while the diplomatic compound in Benghazi was under attack “are murderers of my son.”

Charles Woods was reacting to accounts by Fox News sources that a request from the CIA annex for backup was denied by U.S. officials. His son, Tyrone Woods, was killed in the Sept. 11 assault.

“They refused to pull the trigger,” Woods said. “Those people who made the decision and who knew about the decision and lied about it are murderers of my son.” 

Woods said he forgives whoever denied the apparent request, but he urged them to “stand up.” 

Intelligence building for weeks and pointing to an attack on the anniversary of 9/11 went unheeded.  Oh, but there is so much intelligence out there they’ve said.  Unlike say, one Richard Clarke memo saying somewhere, some time, some place Osama bin Laden is going to try to attack the United States – again.  Mainly, because he’s still around since Clarke failed in his job for eight years to stop him.

“Send help!” the Ambassador cries to a stonefaced Hillary Clinton.  Why do you need help??? We liberated Libya.  “You’re welcome!”, she replied.

A distress call goes out.  The barbarians are literally banging on the gates and there is nothing but voicemail answering in Washington, D.C.  It’s the dinner hour, dontchaknow?  That’s the best case scenario.  The worst case is that the Not Ready For Primetime Players were paralyzed by wanting to get permission to fly into Libyan sovereign air space.  The space we provided them while they refused to protect our embassy.

What do we honestly expect Obama or Clinton to do in this situation?  To behave Presidentially?  Now who hasn’t been paying attention for the last four years?

With troops an hour away, Hillary Clinton, Barack Hussein Obama and Leon Panetta made a conscious decision to leave their representatives’ fates to an al Qaeda mob.  No back-up.  No fly-by.  After all, you can’t just send the most sophisticated and heavily armed military into a conflict that hasn’t already been wargamed for months.

The U.S. military did not get involved during the attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, last month because officials did not have enough information about what was going on before the attack was over, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta said Thursday.

At a Pentagon news briefing, Panetta said there was no “real-time information” to be able to act on, even though the U.S. military was prepared to do so.

“You don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on,” Panetta said. “(We) felt we could not put forces at risk in that situation.”

Apparently al Qaeda in Libya was slyly not updating their Twitter feed to provide their exact GPS coordinates.  When the Chinese or the Russians attack, I hope they will be respectful of our need to prepare first.  Regardless, what’s done is done.  Leon Panetta would not send our troops in to save our Ambassador and his team because they would not be prepared for every eventuality.  Unlike an unarmed diplomatic team purposefully made defenseless and whose concerns were ignored for months who should have known better.

Are any of our other Ambassadors in hotspots listening to this?

Which brings us to Cindy Sheehan.  I know we have a longstanding rule about not bringing Mama Moonbat’s name back up on this blog but this is relevant.  For years, Sheehan and “Camp Casey” were covered and promoted by the Leftwing Media while Bush was in office. For years, Sheehan defiled her son’s memory and sacrifice to be a useful media tool against George Bush.  But where is this same media for Charles Woods?  Is the loss of his son somehow less worthy since there’s a “D” in the White House for the next few days? Maybe Woods should travel abroad and call Obama the terrorist that he is to the delight of the NY Times editorial board.

Mother Sheehan allegedly had Absolute Moral Authority ™ because her son died on a mission he volunteered for twice. Is he supposed to camp out on the streets of Hyde Park, Martha’s Vineyard, or San Francisco and Las Vegas star-studded fundraisers to hold up posterboard signs,  dance with Al Sharpton or hug on Hugo Chavez when his Navy SEAL son was made to die because it was inconvenient for Obama to leave the campaign trail and focus on his job for a few hours?  The one job he actually has to do.  He had one job!  That was it.

As ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, Google Current, the New York Times, the LA Times and the rest jockey to change the subject in the waning days of this election, the one thing that can’t change is what bald-faced propagandists they’ve been throughout this scandal from Candy Crowley on down.   Charles Woods raised a certified hero and they have kidnapped his son’s story and are holding it in the concrete basement of an undisclosed location so that it never sees the light of day.  Al Qaeda in Libya killed the people in our embassy.  The Mainstream Media buried the truth with them and blamed it on a Youtube video.  If they think that the Islamonazis riot over low-rent Youtube videos, just what do they think is going to happen when Harvey Heavy Weinstein spikes the Osama football right before the election?

We should probably go ahead and arrest him now.  Pre-emtively placate the savages by beheading in advance of its release.  The future does not belong to those who slander one of Allah’s most loyal followers.

Woods is being forced to give his interviews to Glenn Beck and Lars Larson for Christ’s sake.  Is Scott Pelley too busy gobbling down Obama’s protein throatshake to dust he knees off and cover a bona fide scandal not involving a BBC television host?  People died in this one.

Woods, in interviews earlier this week, also described a series of conversations he had with administration officials at the memorial service held Sept. 14. He said that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — despite signs early on that militants were behind the attack — pledged to him at that event that she would pursue the maker of an anti-Islam film that had been linked to other protests. 

“Her countenance was not good and she made this statement to me … she said we will make sure that the person who made that film is arrested and prosecuted,” he said on radio host Glenn Beck’s online show, adding that she also apologized.

Woods said he “could tell that she was not telling me the truth.” 

Clinton made good on that promise though.  That filmmaker is still in jail WITHOUT BOND and hasn’t been heard from or seen by anyone. No media demanding an interview.  No ACLU filing suit.  No Hollywood First Amendment Firsters withholding their million dollar contributions to Herr-sein Obama’s brownshirts.  In fact, the latest articles in a Google News search show no updates since September 28th.

The message to our nation’s enemies can’t be clearer.  Attack us with impunity and we will not protect our own.  The message to our warriors is unmistakeable.  Your President hates you as much as what you stand for and will leave you to die while on the mission he assigned you.  And the press will not even try to get to the bottom of it.

Let’s talk about poll numbers.  Or Big Bird or Binders or Bullshit.

Or you can add Insult Ignominy to Injury:

“Did your son always have balls the size of cue balls?” — Vice President Joe Biden to Charles Woods, grieving father of slain Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, during a memorial service at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland.

I believe the saying is that you have balls the size of church bells.  And they make a clangedy-clang sound when I walk down the street. \

Either way, inappropriate for a goddamned Memorial Service, Plugs.  It’s bad enough you killed his son, do you have to let everyone know that you’ve got his balls on your mind at the funeral?  Save that for the bathhouse with Barry.  Impeachable offense IMO.

 

Well-Behaved Reporters Rarely Make History

And well-behaved reporters rarely get to make potty without an escort either apparently:

Still trying to figure out why press can’t even go to bathroom here at Biden event in IA without an Obama campaign volunteer as an escort.

Audience free to move around, go to bathroom w/out campaign escort at Biden event in Council Bluffs, just the press need one. Still a puzzle

 

Let me help solve the “puzzle” for you, hon.  You’re a hack and a lackey of the campaign.  Your job is to be a stenographer for the White House press release and not to report on what was actually said.

Now sit in your piss pants and like it you bootlicking sycophant.

It never occurred to Polly Pisspants that well-behaved women rarely make history.  Barring an armed guard grabbing her by the elbow and throwing her out on the street that she could always just NOT follow Herr Biden’s diktats.  But what Daddy says goes I guess.

Because you know what really looks good after a President’s disastrous national debate?  Abusing the press corps and waging a war on women reporters who struggle to make 70% of what a man reporter makes anyway.   Maybe under Obamacare you can have some balls implanted since your ovaries have left you professionally handicapped.

#CNNFail – Like Watching The Roadrunner On Meth Vs. Wile E. Coyote On Downers

Prime Minister Netanyahu needs to be wearing his white lab coat and pocket protector as he makes his rounds to drop mad science on the D minus students who are  America’s dumbest talking heads:

CNN’s Candy Crowley: What we know is, of course, Iran is allowed under agreements, international agreements, to go ahead and do what it’s doing because there are legitimate peaceful purposes for enriching this uranium

Benjamin Netanyahu: You think so? You think so, Candy? That’s like — let me. It’s not legitimate. This is a country that talks about, denies the Holocaust, promises to wipe out Israel, is engaged in terror throughout the world. It’s like Timothy McVeigh walking into a shop in Oklahoma City and saying, ‘I would like to tend my garden. I’d like to buy some fertilizer.’ ‘How much do you you want?’ ‘I don’t know, 20,000 pounds.’

*Meep* *Meep*.  It’s like watching the Roadrunner on methamphetamine vs Wile E. Coyote on painkillers.  Luckily for Wile E. Crowley, the piano of logic that was dropped from the top floor of CNN’s headquarters to her waiting noggin below won’t be able to penetrate either her or her viewers’ blast door thick craniums.  Like all good cartoons, she’ll just crawl through the mangled ebonies, ivories, wires and splinters to dust herself off none the wiser.

Just for the record, that’s CNN giving the benefit of the doubt to Iran’s intentions on enriching uranium.  The same CNN announcer who will be stacking the deck moderating for a Presidential debate in the next month.

Thank God for New Media

Remember when this stuff was said unchallenged? I do.

If it weren’t for the rise of the Internet and New Media, we would think that Trayvon Martin was a kid murdered by a convicted felon and that Romney was amazed by a touch-screen.

At least we’re dealing with an enemy that is so predictable. Here’s to hoping there are people smarter than us who can leverage this Dinosaur Media’s shopworn tactics against them.

Mexican Standoffish

Testy tyrant President Oblameless got to give a dress rehearsal of his The American President speech this afternoon in the Rose Garden.  It’s not the first time we’ve seen it.  After wiping his ass on the Constitution in front of the White House Stenography Pool, one brave reporter had the temerity to ask him a question in a stunning breach of lickspittle subservience etiquette that was adopted and strictly enforced immediately following the Peeved Prez’s Immaculation.

Apparently asking a question is now considered “heckling”.  It’s also very unpatriotic to yell out a question to the President before he can make his patented Coward’s Exit after announcing the abdication of his responsibility to protect this country in order to make a desperate election year pander to Hispanics or something.

Spitting in the faces of millions of unemployed Americans?  Ok.

Spitting in the faces of those all of the world taking the legal path to citizenship?  Ok.

Laying out the welcome mat for every Mexican felon to get a fresh start in the U.S. if they can get here in the next four months?  Ok.

But asking a question while Oblah,blah filibusters his own press conference before dashing away from the cameras is what’s unpatriotic.

The alleged “standards” for Obamnesty are as follows:

•
came to the United States under the age of sixteen;
•
has continuously resided in the United States for a least five years preceding the date of this memorandum and is present in the United States on the date ofthis memorandum;
•
is currently in school, has graduated from high school, has obtained a general education development certificate, or is an honorably discharged veteran of the Coast Guard or Armed Forces ofthe United States;
•
has not been convicted of a felony offense, a significant misdemeanor offense, multiple misdemeanor offenses, or otherwise poses a threat to national security or public safety; and
•
is not above the age of thirty.

Umm, how do you know the age of someone when they are – by definition – undocumented?

We’re going to profile  and discriminate against them by age.  Is that correct?

How do you know someone came before the age of 16 when there is no record?  You don’t.

What’s a successful student?  One who attends.

What stops any 30 year old in Mexico from running across the border tonight and claiming they’ve been here for the last five years or since they were a child?  Nothing at all.

The fact that they may not have been convicted in the U.S. doesn’t erase their criminal history in their native country.  The rapist, the murderer, the cartel member. If I ran a Mexican prison I would load every felon and insane crazy person on a bus and drop them off on the border tonight like a modern day Mariel Boatlift.

Granting Amnesty is “fair and right” but the discretionary enforcement by ICE and Homeland Security will be used to prosecute older illegals because of their age?  I’m sorry but I just don’t buy that particular line of bullshit.

This is Amnesty for everyone in this country regardless of whether they are from Mexico, Yemen or China.  Plain and simple.  Get here, shit out a kid and sign up for your free Obamacare Medical Card and map to the welfare office.  Followed shortly by your union card and directions to the voting booth.

You’re an American college student paying an exorbitant out-of-state tuition?  Tough shit, home slice.  That illegal alien is now going to get a cheaper college education than you.

You’ve been on unemployment for two years because you can’t find a job?  Congratulations.  I’d like to introduce you to  800,000 several million of your new competitors.

This is the death of Democracy.  When the will of the people is thwarted by a President who knows he is going to lose so he pours gas on whatever fire is in front of him.

Thank you Daily Caller for doing what every other news organization in this country is failing to do.  Thank you for coming down on Obama harder than Romney is going to do along with his VP Marco “Jose Biden” Rubio.

Our only hope at this point is for Congress to request a special review by the Supreme Court and for the southern Governors bordering Mexico to shoot or arrest everyone entering their state by illegal means for the next 5 months.

Your traitor President has stabbed every American in the back and invited a crime wave that will be felt for years if it is not challenged vigorously and immediately.

Unfortunately for us all, too many Republicans just breathed a sigh of relief that Obama did in an afternoon what they’ve been afraid to do for years.

EXIT QUESTION:  Isn’t it just another great coincidence, not unlike the Washington Post running their “Romney bullies homos from 50 years ago at the same time Obama evolves on gay marriage”, that Time Magazine’s cover story yesterday is about a bunch of illegal aliens standing up and saying that they are not afraid of being deported.

No collusion at all from The White House and the media.  Just another coincidence I’m sure!

Gay-Hating, Magic Underwear Wearing Pack of Wild Dogs Attacks Flock of Seagulls. Or Not.

How desperate is the “All-In” media to polish the turd of Obama’s re-election campaign?  Desperate enough to give top of the fold coverage to half a century old allegations of high school pranks.

Prepare yourself for the nastiest campaign in American history.  And look at that turd shine:

…this morning the Washington Post dropped what had to be an intentionally-timed bomb on presumptive nominee Mitt Romney. Within hours of Obama suddenly deciding to stop lying about his position on same-sex marriage, the Washington Post read Mitt Romney’s teenage mind,  found it anti-gay, and in a huge, attention-getting feature worked hand-in-hand with the Obama campaign to paint their likely challenger as a snooty, wealthy, homophobic, prep school bully.

This is the best they’ve got.

We’re to believe that Mitt The Mormon was running around like a “pack of wild dogs” at the same time that Obama was eating packs of wild dogs.  Guess which one is a five page Washington Post cover story?

Hey, now…didn’t Journolist’s founder work for the Washington Post?  Come to think of it, he still works for the Washington Post!

This screenshot from Memeorandum is the textbook definition of “I got the memo”:

Message received loud and clear.

After Obama’s Epic Fail on same-sex marriage, we have to change the subject to a half century old nontroversy that the bankrupt Washington Post has been keeping its powder dry on for who knows how long.

What’s a bigger story?  An alleged prank from 1965 or Obama’s cocaine use in the last twenty years?  A dog put in a kennel on top of a car or the President eating it?

Why can’t we know what classes Obama took in college?  Why can’t we know his GPA?  How is teenage Mitt Romney somehow fodder for major news outlets but Obama starting his career in the home of a domestic terrorist and spending 20 years in a racist crackpot’s church off-limits?

Old Media, just go out of business already.  The Emperor isn’t wearing any clothes and his only modesty is you covering up his pride with your mouth.

Stay Classy, Progs

So, in today’s leftist media culture, you’re not allowed to call a slut a slut, but you’re free to mock tornado victims as “greasy spots” on the highway getting smashed by their “God”. Thank goodness there’s no double-standard in the media or these loving leftists might get really nasty one day.

It’s hard not to wish ill upon a sick, diseased soul such as this, but I shall try to refrain. (or at least I’ll refrain from typing it)

UPDATE: Apparently this guy gets off on trying to make a name for himself via making “shocking” statements. Here he is celebrating Andrew Breitbart’s death. I guess this is how the talentless try to get attention.
