A black Conservatives view of Obama

Posted on February 29, 2008 | Filed Under In My Opinion...

You either know - or know of - Armstrong Williams, or you don’t. To the uneducated out there (that would include most Liberals), Mr. Williams is one of the most well-known Conservative thinkers in the country, and also one of the most hated by liberals and race-baiting blacks. May I suggest that after reading this brief introduction, you take the link to the complete article Mr. Armstrong wrote, since if you stop before doing so you might get the wrong idea about the remainder.

The Real Barack

Armstrong Williams

by Armstrong Williams
Posted: 02/29/2008

Who is the real Barack Obama?

No, this is not an analysis of the leading man’s patriotism, plagiarism, race, or religion, because the reality on those blogosphere topics is simple. He is as patriotic — if not more so — than you and me. He is not a plagiarizer; that was merely the weakling Hillary Clinton trying to find a dent in his armor. He is a different race than past Presidents, but who really cares in this day in age besides a few crazies out there? And he is Christian — not Muslim, nor supportive of terrorists — despite what a group of bloggers and wack jobs out there want you to think.

Now that those issues are eliminated from the discussion, let’s take a real look at the Senator from Illinois. By examining his voting record, analyzing his experiences, and evaluating his prior work, we can begin to determine if this is the man we want leading our country back to greatness.

Economics 101

Posted on February 29, 2008 | Filed Under In My Opinion...

This is something I got in an email from a friend - it is supposed to be both a joke, and a lesson, of sorts. I think it’s probably the best analysis and explanation of the Democrats class warfare tactics there is, and the best example of how the “Bush Tax Cuts” - far from penalizing the “poor” - rather reward them and penalize the “rich”.

Bar Stool Economics

Suppose that every day, ten men go out for beer and the bill for all ten comes to $100. If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something like this:

The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing.
The fifth would pay $1.
The sixth would pay $3.
The seventh would pay $7.
The eighth would pay $12.
The ninth would pay $18.
The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59.

So, that’s what they decided to do. The ten men drank in the bar every day and seemed quite happy with the arrangement, until one day, the owner threw them a curve. “Since you are all such good customers,” he said, “I’m going to reduce the cost of your daily beer by $20.” Drinks for the ten now cost just $80.

The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes so the first four men were unaffected. They would still drink for free. But what about the other six men - the paying customers? How could they divide the $20 windfall so that everyone would get his ‘fair share?’ They realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33. But if they subtracted that from everybody’s share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would each end up being paid to drink his beer. So, the bar owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man’s bill by roughly the same amount, and he proceeded to work out the amounts each should pay.

And so:
The fifth man, like the first four, now paid nothing (100% savings).
The sixth now paid $2 instead of $3 (33%savings).
The seventh now pay $5 instead of $7 (28%savings).
The eighth now paid $9 instead of $12 (25% savings).
The ninth now paid $14 instead of $18 (22% savings).
The tenth now paid $49 instead of $59 (16% savings).

Each of the six was better off than before. And the first four continued to drink for free. But once outside the restaurant, the men began to compare their savings.

“I only got a dollar out of the $20,”declared the sixth man. He pointed to the tenth man,” but he got $10!” “Yeah, that’s right,” exclaimed the fifth man. “I only saved a dollar, too. It’s unfair that he got ten times more than I!” “That’s true!!” shouted the seventh man. “Why should he get $10 back when I got only two? The wealthy get all the breaks!” “Wait a minute,” yelled the first four men in unison. “We didn’t get anything at all. The system exploits the poor!”

The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up.

The next night the tenth man didn’t show up for drinks, so the nine sat down and had beers without him. But when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered something important. They didn’t have enough money between all of them for even half of the bill!

And that, ladies and gentlemen, journalists and college professors, is how our tax system works. The people who pay the highest taxes get the most benefit from a tax reduction. Tax them too much, attack them for being wealthy, and they just may not show up anymore. In fact, they might start drinking overseas where the atmosphere is somewhat friendlier.

“American Taliban” traitor is dead, and good riddance

Posted on February 28, 2008 | Filed Under In My Opinion...

From the Jawa Report (linked) comes this report that Adam Gadahn, aka the “American Taliban” has fulfilled his destiny and gone to his reward as a martyr for Islam - that reward being 72 virgins. One wonders if these virgins Islamofascists are always talking about wear burkhas. Probably why they’re virgins.

No matter. He’s dead, and that’s enough. I suppose we will soon be treated to talking heads from the MSM giving handwringing interviews to his parents - who will no doubt blame George Bush for their dear sons death. Well … they may have something there, since an American drone blew the shit out of this traitorous piece of garbage as well as a few of his buddies. Excuse me while I shed a few tears. Not. Oh, the humanity!

American Traitor Adam Gadahn is Dead Update


A source tells The Jawa Report that Adam Gadahn is dead

Is American al Qaeda member and indicted traitor Adam Gadahn dead? Shortly after a U.S. Predator drone attack killed Abu Laith al-Libi last month rumors began to circulate on Islamic message board that Gadahn had been one of those killed in the raid. Later, a Pakistani newspaper quoted “sources” saying Gadahn was killed. NBC News also claimed that it had a source in Pakistan who was friends with Adam Gadahn and that Gadahn had disappeared after the Predator strike. Gadahn’s friends, said the story, were worried about him.

This week a trusted source revealed to me that he was hearing from Pakistan that Gadahn was most likely dead. I asked him if his sources weren’t the same as NBC? No, he replied, he had a different source of information.

Then why hasn’t the U.S. confirmed Gadahn’s demise? Too many body parts, he said. Very little left of any one on the ground. Could take some time, or we may never have confirmation.

How much do I trust the person who told me this? On a scale of 1-10, he’s an 11. It’s more a question of his sources than anything else. His sources seem to believe Gadahn has gone to meet his 72 virgins.

So, is Adam Gadahn dead? I know we’ve been down this road before, and I know a lot of this is wishful thinking, but Magic Eight Ball says outlook good.

UPDATE: Just to make this clear, there is a major caveat here. That caveat is that my friend’s source is in Pakistan. You know, the land where rumor & fact are sometimes indistinguishable to most. So, there was a reason I picked “Outlook good” and not “It is decidedly so” or “You may rely on it” from among the 20 Magic 8 Ball choices.

Having said that, we have at least three separate sources all claiming that Gadahn is either dead or missing. How sure is the “source”? Very sure.

Let us hope so …

McCain, Obama, what’s the difference?

Posted on February 28, 2008 | Filed Under In My Opinion...

Not much, character-wise.

I’ve not hedged at all my disgust for John McCain and his character - or lack thereof - issues. Plain and simple, I don’t like him and never did. I think he’s a RINO of the worst kind, bad for the party, a horror for Conservatives, and will be a disaster as President if he should be elected. Just so there’s no misunderstanding where I’m coming from.

As bad as he is - Obama is worse. MUCH worse. The “change” he keeps talking about is nothing more than a rehash of the politics of the 60’s. Government largesse financed by taxing those who produce to give to those who don’t, or won’t. Similar to the Hollywood nitwits who flaunt various colored ribbons that signify handwringing positions on a multitude of insignificant subject. “Symbolism without substance” What - exactly - does this guy stand for? What changes is he talking about? Other than raising taxes to finance another round of welfare, tossing good money after bad for the teachers unions, welcoming the enemies of civilization to the United States - including those who would kill us if given the chance.

The last Democrat “debate” brought out a few issues that the MSM has basically ignored about their new darling of the left. I guess I and other bloggers will have to lay it out for you - since they apparently have no intention of doing so.

The father of modern Conservatism passes

In Memory of William F. Buckley

I would guess about 35 years ago, my late sister bought me a subscription to the National Review magazine. It marked the beginning of my intellectual roots, so to speak, and this was solely due to the amazing creator of the magazine - William F. Buckley.

While over the years I came to discard some of my early dedication to hard line Conservative principles - mainly those of a social nature - I never lost my appreciation for Mr. Buckley. His wit, his rapier tongue, his utter disdain for the intellectually dishonest left.

Like others too numerous to mention from both sides of the political spectrum, I mourn his loss. I mourn OUR loss, our societies loss, our countries loss. There will never be another like him. There will be the pretenders, to be sure, but none will take his place among the greats this country has produced in it’s relatively short history. Here is one of the best….

William F. Buckley, RIP
By R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr.
Published 2/28/2008 12:08:30 AM
WASHINGTON — William F. Buckley, Jr. who died Wednesday, appropriately enough in his study, was one of the most stupendous educated Americans of the 20th century. He was among the founders of the American conservative movement that crept out of the New Deal years advocating market economics, traditional social values, and aggressive resistance to communism. Such ideas were viewed disdainfully by the reigning orthodoxy, liberalism, but by the 1980s Buckley’s positions had pretty much defeated liberalism wherever democratic elections could be held. Without him this change would have been either impossible or much delayed.

…and from Ann Coulter

Rest in peace, Mr. Buckley.

Refocus!

With the apparent anointing of Barack Hussein Obama (sorry, but that’s his real name), my crusade against the “most evil woman in America” - that being one Hillary Rodham Clinton - appears to be drawing to a close. Is there anything good to come of this, other than seeing the Clinton’s hopefully banished forever to the rocks they crawled out from under? Not really, as painful as that is. The reason why is we now are reliving the 60’s - that of rose colored glasses, aged hippies, and assorted miscreants and n’er do wells in the persons of Obama supporters, though the term “supporter” might be somewhat misleading. These clowns, who I thought we were rid of when Eugene McCarthy embarrassed himself and his party, have returned with their signs, dirty clothes, chants, and odorific marches. Aren’t we lucky? I can’t see how the country survived without these people. I use the term people loosely, and guardedly. Leeches on the backs of society might be a better term. Not that I’m alone in my thoughts …

Political Hay

Obama’s Society of Beggars

By Jeffrey Lord
Published 2/26/2008 12:08:24 AM

“Oh pleeeeze, sir!”

In three words, this is the driving force behind Barack Obama’s vision for America. A vision epitomized by the famous words written by Charles Dickens for the young Oliver Twist of 19th century England. “Please, sir, I want some more.”

As America is beginning to learn, the young prince of Chicago began his career as what is euphemistically called a “community organizer.” One has to have grown up in the 1960s, I suppose, to know what this is. For those who missed out, a community organizer is someone who spends their time begging from the government. The motives, at least in theory, are always pure. Mrs. Jones needs heat, Joe Smith needs a job, Sally Bell needs milk for her baby.

The problem, of course, is that after decades of practical experience it is now obvious to most Americans that the guiding light behind community organizing is some variant of socialism — which is to say a philosophy that effectively guarantees a lifetime of poverty and dependence, always at the mercy of a government that by the very nature of big bureaucracies can be arrogantly uncaring if not deceitful, slow as molasses, frequently incompetent and, in the end, completely lacking in an ability to help people escape the grinding poverty in which they find themselves.

Barack Obama made his first mark in Chicago by choosing to be a community organizer, inspired by left-wing theoretician Saul Alinsky, the so-called “father” of community organizing.

“Racism” anyone?

Posted on February 27, 2008 | Filed Under In My Opinion...

How long do you think it will be before we hear charges of “racism” tossed around by race-baiters like Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson? We’ve already heard inklings of it from that paragon of religious virtue Louis Farrahkan, so I don’t expect it will be long in coming from the two primary race-baiters in America.

The IRS on Obama’s Trail

Wednesday, February 27, 2008
11:09:43 AM

As reported here in TAS last September, a complaint was filed with the IRS over an appearance by Senator Barack Obama at the United Church of Christ’s bi-annual General Synod last June. Today comes the news from the UCC that the denomination has been formally notified by the IRS this week that it is now under investigation for allowing Obama-as-candidate to speak. The investigation poses a direct threat to the denomination’s tax-free status. This is a separate issue entirely from the cloud of controversy surrounding Obama’s individual church, Trinity UCC in Chicago, and Trinity’s minister the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. This issue involves a decision by the denomination leadership under the Rev. John Thomas to go ahead with the invitation to Obama, a UCC member, which was extended before he announced his candidacy. This even after Obama was very much a declared candidate.

Obama worked with terrorist

Senator helped fund organization that rejects ‘racist’ Israel’s existence

Sen.

JERUSALEM – The board of a nonprofit organization on which Sen. Barack Obama served as a paid director alongside a confessed domestic terrorist granted funding to a controversial Arab group that mourns the establishment of Israel as a “catastrophe” and supports intense , including providing drivers licenses and education to illegal aliens.

The co-founder of the Arab group in question, Columbia University professor Rashid Khalidi, also has held a fundraiser for Obama. Khalidi is a harsh critic of Israel, has made statements supportive of Palestinian terror and reportedly has worked on behalf of the Palestine Liberation Organization while it was involved in anti-Western terrorism and was labeled by the State Department as a terror group.

In 2001, the Woods Fund, a Chicago-based nonprofit that describes itself as a group helping the disadvantaged, provided a $40,000 grant to the Arab American Action Network, or AAAN, for which Khalidi’s wife, Mona, serves as president. The Fund provided a second grant to the AAAN for $35,000 in 2002.

Obama was a director of the Woods Fund board from 1999 to Dec. 11, 2002, according to the Fund’s website. According to tax filings, Obama received compensation of $6,000 per year for his service in 1999 and 2000.

Obama served on the Wood’s Fund board alongside William C. Ayers, a member of the Weathermen terrorist group which sought to overthrow of the U.S. government and took responsibility for bombing the U.S. Capitol in 1971.

Two videos you MUST watch

Posted on February 21, 2008 | Filed Under In My Opinion...

Wake Up, America!

Continuing with the Jihadists attempts to take over the west in general and the US in particular - and place them under Sharia Law, this first video is an eye opener. I cannot understand why people - usually Democrats - want to appease these goatfuckers, when they in essence want to either kill or convert us to their perverted form of Islam. When the video portion is complete, click the “Enter Site” button under the video frame and learn more about the plans the Jihadists have to take over America.

Behold the future in a Democratic administration!

The second video is another wakeup call for America, but of a different type. This one relates to the proposed Democrat plan for socialized medicine. Well - they don’t call it that - they prefer terms like “universal Health care”, or “HillaryCare”, but any way you look at it, it’s socialized medicine.

This video recounts the experience of a man from Ontario, Canada, and his fight to get the examinations and surgery he needs to stay alive - and the response of the Canadian health system to his and his doctors entreaties. Please note that the Canadian system has been presented by the libtards as a model for a US system of free health care. As with anything government proposes … “Free” comes with a few caveats attached.

The Obama’s. Black Clinton’s?

Posted on February 20, 2008 | Filed Under In My Opinion...

Looks like it, doesn’t it? Two for one, like the Clinton’s. Big mouth wife, like the Clinton’s. Socialists, like the Clinton’s. And Mrs. Obama sure put her foot in her mouth the other day, didn’t she? Certainly better than an intern putting the Presidents pecker in her mouth, but hey - I’m just sayin’. Much being made of her comments, though. For example …

Michelle, My Belle…

By Philip Klein
Published 2/20/2008 12:09:34 AM

Michelle Obama’s startling revelation that she wasn’t proud of America until her husband decided to run for president has provoked justifiable criticism, but the incident’s potential damage to Barack Obama’s political aspirations goes deeper than commentators have thus far realized.

“What we have learned over this year is that hope is making a comeback,” Michelle . “It is making a comeback. And let me tell you something — for the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country.”

As John Podhoretz noted,

“Michelle Obama is 44 years old. She has been an adult since 1982. Can it really be there has not been a moment during that time when she felt proud of her country?”

Her comments reflected a growing narcissism among the Obamas as they enjoy a media-nurtured ascendance to demigod status, and also displayed ingratitude to a nation that gave her the opportunity to rise from a working-class background to attend Princeton and Harvard Law School and pursue a successful legal career.

What is most striking about her remarks is that they stand in stark contrast to the tone that has characterized Obama’s rhetoric ever since he burst onto the national scene in his 2004 Democratic National Convention speech.

Democrat Party = Choice?

Posted on February 20, 2008 | Filed Under In My Opinion...

ehhhh… not so much.

Consider the options - Hillary Clinton or B. Hussein Obama. The name “Clinton” pretty much says it all.

  1. Filegate
  2. Bill III.
  3. Travel Office
  4. Whitewater
  5. Cattle futures
  6. “Hillarycare” (and more on that later)

Do we really need another 4 years, at least, of Bill Clinton in the White House? To paraphrase Ann Coulter, “the only good thing about the Clinton’s back in the White House would be we’d get back the silverware and furniture they stole.”

Yes - but then we have B. Hussein Obama - the “Black (Muslim?) Prince” He of the “vision for America”. Sort of Martin Luther King-like … “I have a dream!” Could be, but exactly who the hell is this guy, really? He’s in his first 3 years as a Senator, and other than as a state legislator has had ZERO experience. Yet some think he’s fit to assume the Presidency of the United States. I guess saying you want “CHANGE” cancels out things like experience as far as libtards are concerned. The big question is … “what sort of change are you talking about?”

So far, the only thing I’ve heard is more of the same old liberal left slogans of class envy and tax “reform”, which to libtards means “tax people who work and give the benefits to those who don’t - or won’t.” He says “wealth is not distributed evenly in this country.”

Well … that’s correct. See - the way it works is that people who work and contribute make money that they can spend or save as they choose. Some work hard enough that they make a lot of money. Of course they probably spent a lot of money educating themselves so they could get jobs that pay a lot - but that’s besides the point to liberals. On the other hand, there are people who have spent their entire life feeding at the public trough, have never had a job, have no education (by choice), contribute nothing, and therefore have little or no money.

Now liberals are of the opinion that wealth should be distributed more evenly - so those who do nothing can buy the toys those who DO something can afford to buy. They still don’t want to work for it, so the government says we (the workers) should pay more taxes so they (the government) can give the lazy bastards more of OUR money.

So all we really have from the Democrat Party is NO choice, when you get down to it. Both candidates are of the mindset that central government should take care of every citizens needs, tax people who produce/work, give money to people who DON’T work.

Choice? Not. So. Much

Now back to that “Hillarycare” business. Take a read …

Unfree to Choose

By Jeff Emanuel
Published 2/20/2008 12:07:42 AM

Senator and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton (D-NY) has made “health care for all Americans” a major plank in her policy platform since the beginning of her run for President last year — though, as those who are familiar with the junior Senator from New York and former First Lady’s history will recall, radical changes to America’s health-care system have been a cause dear to Mrs. Clinton’s heart for the better part of the last two decades at least.

The program Mrs. Clinton is currently touting as her solution to the problems in America’s health-care system — particularly its high number of uninsured citizens — is officially called the “American Health Choices Plan,” though it is less-than-affectionately referred to by some as “HillaryCare II” in reference to her failed attempt to push a government health-care system on the nation during the first years of her husband’s presidency.

Under this program, the government alone, with no input from the free market, is responsible for the regulation and management of health care. Oxymoronically, the plan whose formal title includes the term “choice” is built around what is known as an “individual mandate” — a government requirement that all Americans, regardless of income or choice, possess at least a (government-established) minimal level of health insurance.

Intelligent Design vs Darwinism?

Posted on February 19, 2008 | Filed Under In My Opinion...

There has been a major brouhaha about those who follow the theory of “Intelligent Design” and those who support the Darwinian “Theory of Evolution.” I suppose where you put yourself in the argument depends to a degree on your religious faith as much as your knowledge of science. The fact is - as a “science”, Darwin’s theory has been largely debunked - this despite the screeching by the leftists, atheists, and assorted other non-believers.

One can establish a similar link to those who expound on Professor Algore’s theory of “Global Warming”, “Climate Change”, or whatever the hot word of the moment is. There too - the scientific evidence simply does not support the conclusions of the “Believers” , and no amount of true scientific evidence to the contrary will be tolerated. That too is a parallel with the Intelligent Design vs. Darwin argument. And similarly, there has been an overt attempt by the proponents of this phony science to systematically eradicate opposing argument - and for that matter those who disagree based on scientific principles.

In both examples, it can be noted that the primary difference between the proponents is their primary field of study. Not surprisingly, in both cases, those “scientists” cited as favoring the theories do NOT come from the field whose studies concentrate on the topic!

Look at the list frequently cited as the “True Believers” and “Authorities” in Professor Algore’s corner. Notice anything … say … peculiar about the field of study of these “scientists”? Well I’ll tell you - in 99% of the cases, the so-called authority is NOT a student of environmental or astrophysical science. That might be a clue to some people that you should be wary of anything these clowns put forward as “fact”, because the real facts do not support their conclusions. Don’t believe me … look it up for yourselves - but preferably not on Professor Gore’s site - you won’t find it there to be sure.

In the case of Intelligent Design vs. Darwin, the exact same things apply. The “scientists” who support Darwin’s largely debunked theory are rarely if ever from the fields of science that study creation, astrophysics, etc. Look it up! Not only is Darwin’s theory not supported by basic science - it is not even supported by the fossil records of development of species. There are huge blanks in the fossil records of the development of species that are simply not able to be explained. There has never been a link established between lower primates and mankind, despite numerous skeletal remains uncovered. Isn’t is strange that with all these skeletons, not a single BONE - let alone a skeleton - has been discovered that could connect lower primates to man? And there are numerous other examples of blanks of millions of years missing from fossil records even before lower primates inhabited the planet.

The entire theory appears to be based on the fact that the DNA or humans and apes is “similar” in one area of comparison. One. So from that piece of information, it is extrapolated that man is descended from apes.

And similarly to the “Gore Theory of Global Science”, alternate opinions offered by scientists from the fields of study pertinent to the argument have been suppressed.

Ben Stein, writing in the American Spectator, produced a story detailing just this fact recently.

No Intelligence Allowed!

By Tom Bethell

2/19/2008 12:07:57 AM

It’s not often that I attend private screenings, so when I was invited to see the director’s cut of Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed, starring our own Ben Stein, I jumped at the chance. It was shown in downtown Washington, D.C. at the Goethe Institute. I didn’t even know that such a place existed, but then downtown Washington has been rebuilt in recent years, with whole neighborhoods reconstructed. It’s actually beginning to resemble a real city.

The film, a documentary, is about scientists and researchers who acknowledge the scientific evidence for the intelligent design of life and who have been ostracized or denied tenure as a result. In a word, they have been “expelled” from the academy.

Dressed in his squarest business suit, Ben Stein has heard about this controversy and so he sets forth to investigate — his clumpy sneakers striking a defiant note. As always he makes us laugh, less by his words than by the way he so plainly emphasizes them. Can it be, when openness and diversity and freedom of speech are so admired, that a defensible point of view has been suppressed? In America? Ben can hardly believe it. We know it’s true, of course, so we relish the prospect as he girds himself for shocking discoveries and starts knocking on doors in search of the truth.

Literary thoughts…

“The Bad Boy of Baltimore”

a biography of H.L. Mencken, by Marion Elizabeth Rodgers

From which comes this little piece of wisdom that is even more true today than it was back in the day …

Page 409 of that book says the following”

“By the mid-1930’s, thanks to the New Deal, all that self-reliance had changed, prompting Mencken to declare: ‘There is no genuine justice in any scheme of feeding and coddling the loafer whose only ponderable energies are devoted wholly to reproduction. Nine-tenths of the rights he bellows for are really privileges and he does nothing to deserve them.’ Despite the billions spent on an individual, ‘he can be lifted transiently but always slips back again.’ Thus, the New Deal had been ‘the most stupendous digenetic enterprise ever undertaken by man…. We not only acquired a vast population of morons, we have inculcated all morons, old or young, with the doctrine that the decent and industrious people of the country are bound to support them for all time. The effects of that doctrine are bound to be disastrous soon or late.’

When someone asked, “And what, Mr. Mencken, would you do about the unemployed?” He looked up with a bland expression. “We could start by taking away their vote,” he said, deadpan. Mencken was not surprised when the majority disagreed. “There can be nothing even remotely approaching a rational solution of the fundamental national problems until we face them in a realistic spirit,” he later reflected, and that was impossible so long as educated Americans remained responsive “to the Roosevelt buncombe.”

The word “Buncombe” is another word for “nonsense.”

Mencken was a pretty sharp guy, huh?

Some thoughts for today…

Posted on February 18, 2008 | Filed Under In My Opinion...

Obama = Messiah? You’d think so!

I don’t feel much like writing today, so here are a few thoughts from the Patriot Post (linked) to start things off …

“Senator Barack Obama rejects the ‘politics of the past’ while borrowing from its phoniest chapters. His promised caravan toward a new Camelot, with Teddy Kennedy bringing up the rear, may generate feelings in Chris Matthews’ leg and cause women to swoon, but over time it is likely to pall and bore. Obama’s speeches are like cotton candy, sweet but substanceless and dangerous to one’s health if turned into a steady diet. Is he saying nothing? Unfortunately not. Glimpsed through the haze of his sophistical rhetoric is something, and it is tiresomely false, namely, the dogmatic assertion that ‘hope’ and liberalism are synonymous. His reliance on sentiment and rhetoric rather than reasoning to advance that assertion will not inspire a new politics of bipartisan unity but revive old and bitter resentments. Liberalism, after all, has no monopoly on hope, and the chapters of history to which Obama makes implicit reference—the New Frontier and Great Society—concluded in despair. While the Democrats won’t stop squealing over him for some time, the larger culture has already begun to mock Obama as a platitudinous lightweight.”
George Neumayr

“Up to now, the force of Sen. Obama’s physical presentation has so dazzled audiences that it has been hard to focus on precisely what he is saying. ‘Yes, we can! Yes, we can!’ Can what? Listen closely to that… speech. Unhinge yourself from the mesmerizing voice. What one hears is a message that is largely negative, illustrated with anecdotes of unremitting bleakness. Heavy with class warfare, it is a speech that could have been delivered by a Democrat in 1968, or even 1928… It is a depressing message to ride all the way to the White House… In late December, Gallup released a poll in which 84% of respondents said they were satisfied with their own lives. At some point in the next 10 months, people will have to square Sen. Obama’s Grapes of Wrath message with the reality of their lives. Unease about the economy is real, but Sen. Obama is selling more than that. He is selling deep grievance over the structure of American society. That’s the same message as John Edwards, or Dennis Kucinich for that matter.”
—Daniel Henninger

“A few more primary wins and B. Hussein Obama will be able to light up a cigarette during a televised speech and still get the nomination. It looks like the only thing that can stop him now is an endorsement from Al Gore. Gore is always lunging into a movement just as it has passed its prime—the Internet, Howard Dean, global warming, trying to talk black when he campaigns at a black church. He probably bought a big house a few months ago. Gore is such a supremely unlikable human being, he even subverted the mainstream media’s affection for liberalism during the 2000 election. And my brave little Hillary needs a bold move after the Potomac primaries this week. If she can’t trick Gore into endorsing Obama, she may have to divorce Bill.”

In election 2008, don’t forget Angry White Man

From the Aspen Times comes an insightful article on what could be a major - and so far largely discounted - factor in this election and others to come. It might be wise to take heed!

Gary Hubbell
February 9, 2008

There is a great amount of interest in this year’s presidential elections, as everybody seems to recognize that our next president has to be a lot better than George Bush. The Democrats are riding high with two groundbreaking candidates — a woman and an African-American — while the conservative Republicans are in a quandary about their party’s nod to a quasi-liberal maverick, John McCain.

Each candidate is carefully pandering to a smorgasbord of special-interest groups, ranging from gay, lesbian and transgender people to children of illegal immigrants to working mothers to evangelical Christians.

There is one group no one has recognized, and it is the group that will decide the election: the Angry White Man. The Angry White Man comes from all economic backgrounds, from dirt-poor to filthy rich. He represents all geographic areas in America, from urban sophisticate to rural redneck, deep South to mountain West, left Coast to Eastern Seaboard.

His common traits are that he isn’t looking for anything from anyone — just the promise to be able to make his own way on a level playing field. In many cases, he is an independent businessman and employs several people. He pays more than his share of taxes and works hard.

The victimhood syndrome buzzwords — “disenfranchised,” “marginalized” and “voiceless” — don’t resonate with him. “Press ‘one’ for English” is a curse-word to him. He’s used to picking up the tab, whether it’s the company Christmas party, three sets of braces, three college educations or a beautiful wedding.

He believes the Constitution is to be interpreted literally, not as a “living document” open to the whims and vagaries of a panel of judges who have never worked an honest day in their lives.

The Angry White Man owns firearms, and he’s willing to pick up a gun to defend his home and his country. He is willing to lay down his life to defend the freedom and safety of others, and the thought of killing someone who needs killing really doesn’t bother him.

The Angry White Man is not a metrosexual, a homosexual or a victim. Nobody like him drowned in Hurricane Katrina — he got his people together and got the hell out, then went back in to rescue those too helpless and stupid to help themselves, often as a police officer, a National Guard soldier or a volunteer firefighter.

His last name and religion don’t matter. His background might be Italian, English, Polish, German, Slavic, Irish, or Russian, and he might have Cherokee, Mexican, or Puerto Rican mixed in, but he considers himself a white American.

He’s a man’s man, the kind of guy who likes to play poker, watch football, hunt white-tailed deer, call turkeys, play golf, spend a few bucks at a strip club once in a blue moon, change his own oil and build things. He coaches baseball, soccer and football teams and doesn’t ask for a penny. He’s the kind of guy who can put an addition on his house with a couple of friends, drill an oil well, weld a new bumper for his truck, design a factory and publish books. He can fill a train with 100,000 tons of coal and get it to the power plant on time so that you keep the lights on and never know what it took to flip that light switch.

Women either love him or hate him, but they know he’s a man, not a dishrag. If they’re looking for someone to walk all over, they’ve got the wrong guy. He stands up straight, opens doors for women and says “Yes, sir” and “No, ma’am.”

He might be a Republican and he might be a Democrat; he might be a Libertarian or a Green. He knows that his wife is more emotional than rational, and he guides the family in a rational manner.

He’s not a racist, but he is annoyed and disappointed when people of certain backgrounds exhibit behavior that typifies the worst stereotypes of their race. He’s willing to give everybody a fair chance if they work hard, play by the rules and learn English.

Most important, the Angry White Man is pissed off. When his job site becomes flooded with illegal workers who don’t pay taxes and his wages drop like a stone, he gets righteously angry. When his job gets shipped overseas, and he has to speak to some incomprehensible idiot in India for tech support, he simmers. When Al Sharpton comes on TV, leading some rally for reparations for slavery or some such nonsense, he bites his tongue and he remembers. When a child gets charged with carrying a concealed weapon for mistakenly bringing a penknife to school, he takes note of who the local idiots are in education and law enforcement.

He also votes, and the Angry White Man loathes Hillary Clinton. Her voice reminds him of a shovel scraping a rock. He recoils at the mere sight of her on television. Her very image disgusts him, and he cannot fathom why anyone would want her as their leader. It’s not that she is a woman. It’s that she is who she is. It’s the liberal victim groups she panders to, the “poor me” attitude that she represents, her inability to give a straight answer to an honest question, his tax dollars that she wants to give to people who refuse to do anything for themselves.

There are many millions of Angry White Men. Four million Angry White Men are members of the National Rifle Association, and all of them will vote against Hillary Clinton, just as the great majority of them voted for George Bush.

He hopes that she will be the Democratic nominee for president in 2008, and he will make sure that she gets beaten like a drum.

Jihadist scumbags

Posted on February 15, 2008 | Filed Under In My Opinion...

Someone please tell me when the nitwits of the world are going to wake up to the fact that these Islamofascist scumbags will not rest until the entire world is muslim and under Sharia law. Please, do. Every day we here another rampage, another riot over the most inane thing … anything that casts Islam in a bad light - even when true.

From the riots in Europe (of their own doing, btw) over the cartoons characterizing Mohammed as a pervert (he was), a pedophile (he was), of Islam as a bastard non-religion (it is), and so on. These uncivilized goat fuckers are subverting the laws of every place they inhabit and fester like scum. And we let them. No - we encourage them by default, by not telling them “if you don’t like our customs here - get the FUCK out!”

No - that would not be politically correct. Well fuck PC. It’s time our elected representatives recognized these scumbags for what they are - a blight on civilized society. Do civilized people behead a person for no other reason that to make a (warped) point? Do civilized people allow - no encourage - the killing of wives and or daughters to dare to as much as sit with a man not of their family? Do civilized people stone women to death, or use mental defectives as homicide (not suicide) bombers? No they don’t.

Islam is not a religion of peace - it’s not even a religion. It’s a cult based on the thinking of a pedophile, rapist, and pervert. It’s an abomination, and it needs to be addressed forcefully.

Jihad Watch (linked) has a story about only one of the latest outrages perpetuated by this scum.

UK: Shop-owners sold chocolate cake sprinkled with human feces

“It was not our fault but I don’t want to talk about it,” said Hasmi.

Whose fault was it?

“Shop-owners sold chocolate cake sprinkled with human feces,” from the Daily Mail (thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist):

Two shop-owners were today fined for selling chocolate cake - which had been sprinkled with human feces.

A horrified customer ate the foul-smelling gateaux but noticed that it didn’t taste or smell “quite right” and handed the cake to public health scientists.

The analysts soon established that the sweet treat was covered in feces and legal proceedings against the shop owners were started.

Shop owners Saeed Hasmi, 25, and Jan Yadgari, 23, were fined £1,500 for selling food unfit for human consumption.

The pair - who ran the Italiano Pizzeria in Roath, Cardiff - admitted the charge but did not say how the chocolate cake was contaminated.

The takeaway is a favourite with late-night revellers and students living around the takeaway close to Cardiff University.

Hasmi and Yadgari at first denied the charge but pleaded guilty at Cardiff magistrates court before the trial.
Hasmi, of Roath, Cardiff, and Yadgari, of Adamsdown, Cardiff, were each fined £1,500 and ordered to pay £200 costs.

After the case Hasmi said:

“It was not our fault but I don’t want to talk about it. I’m not working in the food industry anymore. I want to do something else. We are sorry for the people who ate it,” he said.

Sure you are, you scumbag. You’re “sorry”. You didn’t put human shit in food to sell to non-Muslims, but it somehow just GOT there. I wasn’t aware “miracles” were part of Islamic teachings! One could suppose that the “other things” you now want to do includes homicide bombings?

There are lessons to be learned from this disgusting and despicable incident - not an isolated one, either - and that is simply this:

  • Do NOT patronize any business … ANY business … operated by Muslims.
  • Do NOT allow a Muslim to administer any type of medical care to you.
  • Do NOT allow yourself to be intimidated by these goatfuckers for ANY reason.

I would also include the Chinese in these caveats. Don’t buy ANYTHING that is made in China. Nothing. Fuck them and the shit they sell to anyone who is not asian. Their “products” - the result of slave labor - are full of lead and other toxins. People have died as a direct result of (intentionally?) defective products from China, as have animals who have ingested tainted foods imported from China - falsely labels goods at that.

WAKE UP!

Religion of Peace? You gest.

Posted on February 14, 2008 | Filed Under In My Opinion...

They (Muslims) can deny it all they want, but even a casual reading of the Q’uran will demonstrate even to boobs like Democrats that Islam is a religion of violence - not peace. Author/blogger Robert Spenser, of Jihad Watch (linked) has a really good video out on the subject that everyone should see, and send to friends. I don’t know how many times it has to be said - by me and many others - that these goatfuckers are out to kill anyone who does not submit to Sharia law, as the Q’uran clearly states and exhorts its followers to do.

Watch the video, and drop in on Roberts blog while you’re at it.

B. Hussein Obama & Che Guevara?

Posted on February 14, 2008 | Filed Under In My Opinion...

Apparently so, if a picture on the wall of one of his election offices is an indication.

The story is making the rounds of the web and causing just a bit of a problem for Obama - who refuses to wear a US Flag pin in his lapel - yet allows a picture of a communist murderer of innocent people to be displayed in one of his election campaign offices.

Fox News’ image of Texas volunteers with Che Guevara flag

The Fox TV affiliate in Houston has captured images of a volunteer in a campaign office for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama working in front of a flag featuring the image of Che Guevara, the South American revolutionary who became Fidel Castro’s executioner after the communist takeover in Cuba.

And while the Obama campaign has issued a statement placing a modest distance between the campaign and its “volunteers,” the issue of such an image on display in an office operating on behalf of a man hoping to be commander in chief of the world’s last remaining superpower is raising alarms.
Story continues

Update on this story –

Lonestar Times has done some sleuthing and came up with an apparent suspect in this entire thing. I’ll just give youa snippet and then a link to the article itself …

highlighting a Cuban flag with the super-imposed face of psychotic Marxist Che Guevara hanging in Barack Obama’s Houston HQ’s has caused quite a kerfuffle, which we are happy to inflame further with today’s update.

LoneStarTimes.com investigation has determined that the dumbass who hung a flag of psychotic Marxist Che Guevara in Barack Obama’s Houston headquarters is almost certainly a Ms. Maria Isabel.

How do we know this? First a bit of video triangulation. See it

Left me speechless …

A huge hat tip to RightWingSparkle (linked) for this link to the TV show “Extreme Makeover - House Edition.” The show in question was about a young Marine who lost not only his leg in Iraq - but returned home to find his wife of 9 years had up and left him and their 4 young children. What kind of unspeakable bimbo would do something like this I cannot fathom, but this Marine forged ahead in the Marine Corps spirit, providing for his family the best he could, all while providing support to other injured Marines and their families.

A true American hero in every sense of the word.

I have no embarrassment admitting that I was in tears through the majority of this fantastic story. If you’re human - you will be too.

Take the link to the ABC website and select the “Gilyeat Family” episode. You might need to install ABC’s media viewer to get the full video, but it’s worth it - you can always uninstall it afterwards if you want.

If you’ve never seen Mr. Steyn - a Canadian who, in his words, “now lives in the US to escape political persecution” - speak .. you are missing something.

Townhall has provided us with an opportunity to see Mr. Steyn in action during a speech at the recent CPAC event and it is not to be missed. Via Townhall …

Mark is probably one of my favorite speakers to listen to. Nobody talks about health care or immigration like Steyn. Nobody articulates the threat we face from radical Islam quite like Steyn. Nobody makes the case for freedom like Steyn. And absolutely nobody makes you think as much and laugh as much as Mark Steyn. Townhall.com captured his speech today. If you’ve never heard him speak, I strongly recommend you take a moment and watch, enjoy and learn.

Unlike England, no Muslim PC in Pentagon?

Posted on February 11, 2008 | Filed Under In My Opinion...

Referring of course to the recent statements of the Archbishop of Canterbury - the Church of England’s leader - who said it was a foregone conclusion that the UK would eventually be under Sharia Law.

Not so the US, and specifically the Pentagon - where a brouhaha has been boiling over charges a Muslim working for the Asst SecDef has caused a highly rated military expert on Islam to be demoted and transferred. Now, it looks like the pendulum is swinging the other way.

Embattled Muslim aide to leave Pentagon job

Hesham Islam’s ‘resume didn’t add up,’ official says
Posted: February 11, 2008
11:07 am Eastern

In a stunning turn of events, a high-level Muslim military aide blamed for costing an intelligence contractor his job will step down from his own Pentagon post, WND has learned.

Meanwhile, his rival, Maj. Stephen Coughlin, a leading authority on Islamic war doctrine, may stay in the Pentagon, moving from the office of the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to the office of the secretary of defense. However, sources say a former U.S. ambassador to Turkey is trying to block his new contract.

The top Pentagon aide, Egyptian-born Hesham H. Islam, came under a cloud of suspicion after reports raised doubt about his resume and contacts he had made with radical Muslims. He is expected to leave the government next month, officials say.

Islam and Coughlin recently quarreled over intelligence briefings Coughlin presented showing a close connection between the religion of Islam and terrorism. Coughlin’s contract with the Joint Chiefs, which ends in March, was not renewed. Rest of story

Back to Jolly Old England … comes this latest outrage over the influence of Muslims in that country.

Britain’s bigamy break chafes many

By Al Webb
February 11, 2008

LONDON — The British government has cleared the way for husbands with multiple wives to claim welfare benefits for all their partners, fueling growing controversy over the role of Islamic Shariah law in the nation’s cultural and legal framework.

Bigamy is outlawed in Britain, but authorities have never prosecuted Muslim men who had legally married more than woman abroad and continued to live with them after immigrating. Shariah permits men to have up to four wives at one time.Now, after a review that began in November 2006, a panel of four government departments has decided that all the wives of a Muslim man can collect state benefits, provided that the marriages took place in a country where multiple spouses are legal.

Neither the review nor the decision was announced publicly, and their discovery by newspapers late last month triggered uproar in this largely Christian nation a fury exacerbated by Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams’ remark last week that some aspects of Islamic law are “unavoidable” in Britain’s legal system.The archbishop is spiritual head of the world’s 77 million Anglicans, and his comment added to unease about Islam following the September 2001 terror attacks in the United States and the suicide bombings by Muslims on London’s bus and rail system that killed 52 commuters three years ago.

The proposed use of taxpayer money to support multiple wives of Muslim men a figure that one estimate puts at up to $20 million a year has provoked widespread anger, particularly since bigamy is a crime in Britain, punishable by up to seven years in prison. The rest of this story
