Short Attention Span Theater

Having followed the daily news and history making events for the past thirty five odd years of my life, I often find interesting what seems to pique the interests of Americans at large as so called news reporting.

I have come to think of Americans at large, as suffering from 'short attention span theater' disorder. A form of mass hypnosis or mass hallucination if you will. Short attention span theater is actually a take off on a syndicated Comedy Central program of the early 90's. The plot of the program was basic, the hosts and various guest celebrities would appear weekly, to critique what was represented as supposed news stories of the day. a tongue in cheek repartee that poked more fun than reality at the news.

As some would say, this genre of spoof 'newsing' was a real 'pastiche' of presentation, where both the word pastiche and the reality it represents seem far more applicable to what I am seeing in the world of represented journalism today. Today's offerings of media reporting have long since left their credos of journalistic integrity and impartiality by the way side. Opting more frequently for the glib and the shock and the staged presentation, or the knowing finger to nose nod of the liberal elite far more often than simply and honestly reporting the news. Even president Obama remarked of it recently when he addressed the media directly and told them that he was not on a 24 hour news cycle like they are.

Gone are the days of Edward R. Murrow and the smoke filled rooms where journalists hammered away on typewriters attempting to beat out copy of the latest breaking reports from around the world. Today everything is canned or pre-staged or choreographed and packaged for the perceived audience that the advertisers are trying to reach. And one look at the day's line up of supposed new stories each day only reinforces that reality IMO.

Presently? There are a number of issues that should find the average America exceedingly worried. But unless and until one of these happenings affect them immediately and directly? They'd rather tune into Entertainment Tonight or David Letterman to get their daily fix on media reality. And when they are not following the main stream offerings of the likes of ABC, NBC and CBS (which according to ratings is less and less), they are buried nose deep into cable and the Comedy Central representations like the Daily Show and the Colbert Report. I can only imagine how many dumbed down and illiterate brains tune into these programs regularly and actually believe that hip comedy masquerading as informative chic, actually represents news honest and forthright news reporting.

There is certainly more to news reporting than snappy graphics, CGI animations and the glib remarks made by those who majored more in partying while obtaining their formal educations, than they did focusing on American and global history, politics or journalism.

We are in dire straights my friends. As Glen Beck said on his morning radio program today, all we have heard since last Thursday is non stop wall to wall and 24/7 coverage of the death of Michael Jackson. And mean while? We have a crisis in Iran with the continued threat of a nuclear Iran. The Pakistanis are losing control by the day and Al Qaida is openly pursuing getting their hands on the Pakistani nuclear arsenal. Kim Jong is threatening to aim a rocket at Hawaii and launch it on America's independence day, while openly threatening the world and flaunting the UN and America's weak attempts to control his lunacy.

Meanwhile, the Russians and the Chinese are combining forces to create a new currency cabal to force out and collapse America in the world markets and democracies are being subjugated and replaced by Marxist socialist regimes at a scary rate in central and south America.

And back at home? President Obama continues to fiddle while Rome burns, while Pelosi and congress attempt to sell us all down the river with their recently passed cap and trade bill.

Yes friends and neighbors? Dire straights it is and it seems not only that the American media is asleep at the switch and already gone over to the dark side of the force, but it also appears that the American people by and large could give a damn less.

I am sorry to say, I never thought that I would see the day when rank and file Americans would simply roll over and die rather than stand up for their rights and freedoms and for the protection of their families and their futures. But that is precisely what I am presently seeing. I call it the Rhett Butler philosophy of looking past the reality and simply uttering, 'frankly my dear? I don't give a damn."

Well IMO? It won't be long before they begin to give a damn now. The realities are rushing forward now with the speed of light. Never before has the demise of this nation been so assuredly cast as a certainly, if we continue to pursue the present foolish course of socialist lunacy and appeasement and continue to refuse to reign in a runaway government in Washington.

Neverland never dies

'I'm better off dead. I'm done'

It's been a little over 72 hours now, since the king of pop passed from our midst. I have purposely refrained from commenting on his death, in lieu of contenting myself to simply watch the lecherous aftermath of what surely is proving to be a media feeding frenzy and media circus. Quite predictable I might add and leaving little for someone like myself to add of either worth or relevance.

I was like many of the Jackson era, I passed the last forty odd years on the sidelines watching the rise of the child into the mega star and then the decent into the decadence of a childhood deprived and prolonged by mind boggling wealth and a media circus that both prolonged and propelled it into its final oblivion.

I was never a great fan of the man or his music, although I must admit that his Thriller video has always stood out to me as the zenith of his career and the best offering of talent that he ever produced IMO. I like many others, simply watched the circus that was Michael's life and never considered the conflicts and pain that he endured until probably the last five or six years of his life.

The man child was a hapless soul IMO. A pitiful mass of humanity that had long ago been trapped into the life of a performing circus animal and never allowed to experience even the most simple joys in life. How else to explain the infatuation with Peter Pan and Neverland and the boy who never grew up. How else to explain the known comfort of the company of children. How else to explain the wide eyed wonder of extravagance, all the while never considering the consequences, or the fact that at some point the money runs out.

Michael Jackson was the classic caricature of arrested development IMO. The child trapped in the grown up body that could never be a man and yet could never remain as a child. There were never any options for this trick pony from Gary Indiana. He was born into a family of performing acts and he wound up being the prize pony of an abusive father that never allowed him to simply enjoy being a child.

I could probably say a lot about my observations of Michael Jackson over the last thirty odd years, but there would be little point. Most everyone knows and has seen for themselves the spiral of the once mega star into the oblivion that resulted in his death this week. In the article linked above, the author clears up more than a few loose ends and answers more than a few painful questions IMO. The article and comments obviously excerpted from his book and from a seeming wealth of direct experience dealing with and observing Michael over years. The author is the first person to bring it all into perspective since Michael's death IMO and his book was already written before Michael's death.

My first thoughts after hearing of Michael's death this week were.....'let the circus begin.' But in reality, the circus has always been there, it never ended. It goes on and all that has changed is that the real freak show is about to begin. And that will become the legacy. Everyone from the creditors to all the other scavengers are only out to make a buck. Sadly so, even his family will be right in the midst of carving up the legacy. They will all be tearing at the carcass of memory that was once the king of pop music and they will each want their pound of flesh and royalties for their efforts.

Thankfully, Michael is gone and removed from this final act of debauchery. He won't have to endure the penetrating lights and the sneering laughter anymore, or the family betrayal that has already begun IMO. He has endured one of the most sumptuous and painful lives that any human being could possibly imagine, but all that has ended now. And whether he is at peace now is something that remains between him and his creator.

I for one find no pleasure in watching the circus. I am content to remember the performer that was Michael at his best. Before the corruption of life and people had taken their toll and destroyed the last living resident of Neverland.

I can close my eyes and almost hear Michael's voice saying......."Forget them, Wendy. Forget them all. Come with me where you'll never, never have to worry about grown up things again."

RIP Michael.

Cap & Trade "There's a Sign Post Up Ahead"

House narrowly passes major energy-climate bill

By a margin of seven votes late yesterday afternoon, the US House of (non) representatives, signed the death warrant for the American economy and any hope of survival for the American people, to ever pull out of this recession without a depression IMO.

Yes, it is now only a matter of time before the great depression that has long been feared actually arrives in America and is recreated in our time with a vengeance. The plug has been pulled on our economy by those that we elected to represent our better interests in Washington and they had their hands on the lever every inch of the way. They have given themselves over to the loyalty of Marxist idealism as opposed to the people who elected them and now, we will all must suffer the consequences of failing in our diligence to insure that they looked out for our better interests.

America was already on life support, with a staggering economy and monthly job losses literally crushing the breath out of every gasp and attempt made by the economy to catch its breath.

But never mind all that, this isn't about saving the nation's economy for the Washington liberal socialist elite. This is about wrecking it, plain and simple. And that has been their plan ever since Barrack Hussein Obama and his handlers first positioned him to run for the presidency of the United States. The best laid plans of mice and men? Not hardly. These were and are the best laid plans of Marxist socialists and those who have spent their lives constructing the means and deploying the methodologies of destroying individual freedom and capitalism in America. And they are finally succeeding. And yesterday they achieved a mortal blow IMO.

The messianic one promised during the campaign that he would kill the coal industry in America. Barrack Hussein Obama was on record. Obama to kill coal? Swing states erupt

"If somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can," Obama said in an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle. "It's just that it will bankrupt them because they're going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that's being emitted."

And what did the American people say to that campaign promise from the man who promised change? How did they react in the coal states to his promise of putting them out of work and out of business and in the poor house of destitution?

Well let's see.......

This is the map of coal producing states in America.

And this is a map of the states that voted for Obama....

Yes, half of the coal producing states in America voted for Barack Hussein Obama.

And yesterday the United States Congress cemented the inevitability of collapse of the American coal industry with their passage of this supposed "energy bill." The prophesy is proven. Barack Obama does intend to bankrupt the American coal industry.

“We passed transformational legislation which takes us into the future,” Pelosi said at a press conference following the vote, after she and other leaders took congratulatory phone calls from Obama, former Vice President Al Gore and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

You most certainly did Madam Speaker and the American people will rue the day that they ever saw this socialist interloper and his rogues gallery of socialist progressives such as yourself handed the reins of legislative power in this country.

At the very moment in time when America is struggling and laboring to breath under the weight of the most crushing recession and job losses in our history? You have lead the way to the slaughter of American survivability on the alter of egalitarian socialism and it's bastard sibling Marxist relativism.

These supposed mother earth environmentalists who have created this lunacy and their minions in Washington, are after nothing less than murdering the great beast that once was the American economy. Don't be confused and don't be blinded by what is actually going on here folks. While the America coal industry is being dealt its death blows by this Barack Obama inspired and Nancy Pelosi crafted energy bill, China and the rest are proceeding full ahead to develop their coal industries unrestrained. They don't even have 1940's regulatory oversight on their coal production or coal fired plants.

Mean while, Europeans are developing their nuclear powered plants, while we here in America have been lulled into the lies of socialist guilt and the belief that we don't deserve to enjoy what we have provided for ourselves and the majority of the world for the past 100 years. We have no right to either coal or nuclear power. Leave that for the Chinese, the Indians, the N Koreans and the Iranians. And get rid of those damned SUV's while you are at it people. Prepare to buy bicycles for your daily commute, because that is where we are headed as a nation.

As the costs of energy for Americans begins to rise in the weeks and months ahead, I only hope that Americans will look back and remember who and what did this to them. As their power bills increase and their cost of gas at the pump and their costs of food in the grocery becomes astronomical.

Oh yes....the cost of living in America is about to go dramatically up friends. But take heart! You have done something to strike a blow for the planet! Mother earth rejoices in your misery and snickers at your illiterate ignorance of realities and the ability of harlequin jesters to convince you to bleed yourselves to death.

And yes, your representatives (the ones that you elected) will dress this pig and paint on any color that helps sooth your raw nerves as the months progress. So do prepare yourselves to return the favor come November of 2010 and again in November 2012. As those are the next stops on this run away train into oblivion.

Rod Serling said it best IMO.

You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension - a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You've just crossed over into the Twilight Zone!"

The emails now revealed

Paper reveals SC gov's romantic e-mail exchange

Much has been made of South Carolina's governor Mark Sanford's disappearance act last week and the subsequent revelations of an affair with an Argentine woman this week, but one of the big missing links now revealed are the emails.

Not that there are any great revelations or unique perspectives revealed in any private communication concerning a sordid affair, but the South Carolina newspaper that has supposedly had these emails for the last six months and sat on the? Well that leaves a bit more than a simple question mark at the end of the examination IMO.

Someone with access to the governor's private email account obviously skimmed these emails months ago and sent them to the newspaper. And now that the proverbial cat is out of the bag? The newspapers releases the emails and claims that they had no way of knowing that they were true before the governor's confession?

"We didn't know that they were true, basically, until this week, and events that happened this week, things the governor said today, finding him at an airport in Atlanta coming back from Buenos Aires, authenticated the e-mails," O'Connor said.

I am sorry, but that is a bit of a stretch for me. They obviously knew these emails involved the governor and that they involved a potential political bombshell. What were they waiting for? IMO, the answer is relatively simple. They intended to sit on these emails for how ever long it took, to determine the political viability of a presidential run by Sanford in 2012.

The Obamagasm Infomercial

ABC ObamaCare Special Turns Into Presidential Filibuster

The first reviews of the arrival of the Great Pumpkin's Obamagasm infomercial? And aside from ABC (the network that aired it) the reviews look a little dicey in the pale morning light. We all know that Charlie Gibson and those at ABC are still basking in the after glow of the great pumpkin's Obamagasm, but for the rest of us there weren't many tingly feelings running up and down the legs last night or this morning.

Of course I haven't checked in on the Chris Matthews critique just yet, but I am fairly sure that the Obama infomercial didn't have the desired effect that the Obama White house had hoped for. Not even much indulgence by media on the morning news reports this morning covering the story.

Call this a teachable moment, but even with ABC’s best-laid plans to kickstart the debate about health care reform and not allow the “Prescription for America” special to become an “infomercial,” as many have complained – the president spent more than twice as much time as his questioners vaguely answering or not answering the questions asked of him. But the network consistently presented the event as part of the need to fix a "broken system." When asked, every one of the 164 hand-picked audience members said they felt that health care needed to be changed.

Well of course they did. What was to be expected? After all, this was a hand picked audience by the All Barack Channel and probably aided by and the Huff Pro and God knows who else in the democratic party.

And then there was this....

In fact, at one point, the president went on for four minutes and 33 seconds to answer a question about government interference, the “Big Brother fear” as the questioner put it and how it would be paid for. In the next segment Gibson pleaded with the president to keep his response to the next question shorter.

I am sorry, but the word whore comes to mind when I read something like this. As if some pleading harlot is begging for the trick to go easy on her. Almost as if Gibson was saying......'After all, everyone knows what is going on here Barack, please don't make it so obvious.'

So there you have it, the president lays out his plan for socialized medicine to a hand picked canned audience and the All Barack Channel refuses to allow any rebuttal or opposing viewpoints or opinions.

So.....are we now headed toward a disastrous cliff with Obama's socialized health care program?

Was a major American news network in the tank and remains so for this president?

Was this infomercial and the policy that it was hustling just another example of Obama's intended complete control of this country beginning with the media?

“The answers are yes to all of that, and if the American people get behind us, this is going to happen,” Obama said, getting the last word from ABC.

What was in the letter?

U.S. Contacted Iran Supreme Leader Before Election

In the aftermath of the obviously rigged Iranian elections, it is now revealed that president Obama sent a letter to the real power in Iran prior to the elections. Not president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, but rather Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khameneiin. A letter in advance of the sham elections that president Obama had to know was about to occur. Khameneiin has even subsequently acknowledged receipt of the president's letter.

I for one am wondering what was in that letter. Will it ever be known? I seriously doubt it. Supposed national security and such will naturally preclude release of the letter until long after Obama is out of office and probably only after he is long since dead. Provided that this country even exist at that point in time.

But it would be interesting to see what this president was passing in back channels to this totalitarian theocracy of Islamic militancy. Am I alone in that thinking and curiosity? Am I alone in wondering what could have been of such importance, as to use back channel diplomacy to send a private communique to a totalitarian regime? Even Neville Chamberlain was more above board in his cowardly appeasing approach to Hitler. Is this the style of diplomacy that is to be revisited and revived by this president? And what other plans does he have in the making.

The first question that should be asked of this president IMO is why? Why send letters to Islamic tyrants through back channel diplomatic pouches? And why do it in advance of an election that any reasonable person (other than Jimmy Carter) would have to realize is going to be a sham. And have there been other letters sent to other extremist radical leaders? Is this why there has been no response from Obama on the intended missile launch by N Korea? Has a gentleman's agreement already been reached between him and Kim?

Letters to Kim Jong? Letters to Hugo Chavez? Where does the trail end and at what level of complicity is our president involved in facilitating socialism, communism, fascism and tyranny globally.

I for one in light of what I am seeing believe these are fair questions. The problem is? We as citizens of this country have few if any individuals in media, willing to speak truth to power. And fewer than that who will ask those probing questions in our behalf.

I watch the news reports and read the internet daily and I know the answers that I keep coming up with to some of these questions that I am raising. Especially in light of the president's performance on the Iranian election and the crisis that has followed since the rigged elections. IMO, legitimate and probing questions need to be asked by those claiming to be journalists and claiming to represent the best interests of "we the people." We gave them the constitutional right to ask the questions for us and they are abdicating their responsibility to the king.

If you ask my opinion? Obama's letter was an acknowledgment of his advanced intent to do absolutely nothing in the face of what he already knew would be the result of these elections. He already knew how the Iranians intended to handle this sham election and that they intended to put down any resistance to the outcome.

Obama IMO, was telling them in advance, that regardless of the published outcome in the American media or the reality of fact as would be leaked out eventually via the internet, that he would sit on his hands and do absolutely nothing. What other interpretation can be made in lieu of his actions (lack of action) as it concerns the fledgling revolution currently struggling for life in Iran.

I believe I know what other presidents of my lifetime would have done in this instance save one. Jimmy Carter would have been every bit as weak as Obama if not more, but I don't even think that Bill Clinton would have reacted so poorly and transiently and visibly weak on the international stage to the Iranians and terrorists as this president has. And I know what Reagan or either of the Bush's or the rest would have done I am fairly certain.

And yesterday, after over ten days of abject refusal to address the crisis in any substantive fashion, Obama was finally cornered. During yesterday's press conference from the White House, Major Garret of Fox news finally baited the dragon in his lair and took on the president head on. Garret asked the president pointedly and directly as it concerned his weak leadership concerning the events in Iran, "what took you so long?" (as in what took you so long to show any spine on the issue) What took you so long to denounce these repressive acts by the Iranians?

And the other networks present at the news conference suddenly seemed to find some collective balls after Garret of Fox news had finally cornered Obama on his weakness on the Iranian crisis.

Here are some of the other questions that were finally unleashed by a previously cowed media.

And once again the "I am the president of the United States and they are not" was about all that Obama had as a response or retort to justifiably probing questions of his administration and its failure to address the present day realities of threats to this country.

Meanwhile, Charles Gibson of ABC news is getting fitted and sized for his Lincoln bedroom slippers and bathrobe tonight, as he anchors a two hour ABC news extravaganza "Live from the White House." (The Barack Obama Socialist health care program submitted to America by the All Barack Channel.)

In any other era or at any other time where reason and common sense prevailed? Americans would be outraged and calling this production precisely what it is. They would be calling it propaganda and acknowledging the reality that we are on the cusp of Obama creating a "Ministry of Propaganda" and doing so with existing media resources.

But I guess we should first allow the man to have his say through his corrupted media mouthpieces before we call the reality before us what it is.

The Cloward and Piven Strategy As Currently Applied

An eye opening read, particularly in light of the present manufactured crisis's that are afoot on numerous fronts in America. And once again, the mentors of the socialist dilemma are front and center and their fingerprints are all over the canvas.

"Make the enemy live up to their (sic) own book of rules," Alinsky wrote in his 1989 book Rules for Radicals. When pressed to honor every word of every law and statute, every Judeo-Christian moral tenet, and every implicit promise of the liberal social contract, human agencies inevitably fall short. The system's failure to "live up" to its rule book can then be used to discredit it altogether, and to replace the capitalist "rule book" with a socialist one. (Courtesy Discover the

Newsmax rounds out the picture:

Their strategy to create political, financial, and social chaos that would result in revolution blended Alinsky concepts with their more aggressive efforts at bringing about a change in U.S. government. To achieve their revolutionary change, Cloward and Piven sought to use a cadre of aggressive organizers assisted by friendly news media to force a re-distribution of the nation's wealth.

It's all in this article. Well written and citing references that are indisputable.

Bearing Witness

To the "Arch of the moral universe."

While Rome burns (at home) and Tehran is in flames, our illustrious leader is directing us to "bear witness to the arch of the moral universe."

And on the issue of N Korea, he is intent on sending signals of unity and assuring the American people that the I's are dotted and the T's are crossed and everything is under control concerning N Korea and Iran for that matter.

Watch this space for updates on how all that is going.

Hot Town, Summer in The City

Back of his neck feeling dirt and gritty.........

Those are the headlines on the Drudge page this morning. And the Daily Presidential Tracking Poll is finally beginning to register with the people.

There are now three crisis's looming on the Obama daily security briefing and here in the heartland we were told by VP Joe Biden that the president would only face one real crisis within his first six months in office. (a test he called it back then.) Little did Joe or anyone else realize then, that by the time the messiah had reached his six month in office mark, that he would be staring down three separate crisis with more looming and brewing by the day. (not including the economic crisis).

Everyone with access to any media has to be familiar with the churning and growing revolution in Iran. Everyone except our president it would seem. At a time when we need an American president to step forward and demonstrate leadership and support for those seeking to overthrow the Mullahs in Iran? We find our president cowed and in the corner watching push polls, for fear of being accused by theocratic tyrants in Iran, of interfering in Iranian internal affairs. (I wonder what Obama thinks of Jimmy Carter's meddling in Iranian internal affairs thirty years ago.)

Meanwhile? Gordon Brown (Gordy the jellyfish Brown to his admirers)is stealing all of the Messiah's thunder in the press. The president of the United States should be the leader of the free world.

But in the past week, we have discovered he is not. That mantle has been firmly grasped by Gordon Brown, the prime minister of Britain.

Mean while, the president is once again ignoring the rambling mad man on the Korean peninsula. As the N Korean lunatic prepares to fire a rocket that he is admittedly aiming at America! And he intends to fire it at Hawaii on America's independence day holiday in less than two weeks! Obama does what? (the sounds of chirping crickets comes to mind).

And if that were not enough, we now read where Al Qaida says would use Pakistani nuclear weapons given the opportunity to use them against America. So how long before the subliminal messages that Obama has intentionally been sending to the Muslim world reaches fruition? Does anyone else notice the increased tempo of global events since Obama's Cairo speech two weeks ago? Surely they have. The Muslims and Islamic fanatics surely have. They saw a weak president and a weakened America and they fully intend to take advantage of what they are seeing.

How long before Al Qaida becomes fully emboldened and capable of seizing nuclear weapons in Pakistan? How long before they gain access to the Pakistani nuclear weapons inventory and begin staging them for use against America? And what then of our illustrious leader? How much touchy feely currency will our "first black president" have with these Islamic fanatics then. No more than he had from the beginning IMO. And that is none.

I am sorry, but I have never seen things as dire as it concerns the global tinderbox of world flash points. Certainly never to the extent that it is now. Not even when I was a kid and we were staring down the Russians during the Cuban missile crisis. At least back then, we had a president with some balls and the wherewithal to know how to play high stakes poker with tyrants.

But not now. Now we have a socialist interloper play acting as president and when he isn't stumbling through trying to look presidential with the aid of his teleprompter conscience, he is getting the nation's serious business of apologizing for slavery out of the way.

These are dire times that this nation is facing, both economically and internationally. Terrorist Islamic fanatics are emboldened daily by the laissez-faire economic liberal socialism and abject sophomoric policies of our junior novice president. And America cannot afford what is about to happen once again to this country on two fronts.

America is literally staring down an economic collapse of biblical proportions and the president of the United States continues to smile and drive the bus toward the cliff at a faster rate. All the while seizing more power and control over all aspects of the capitalist system that built this nation into the greatest on earth.

Meanwhile, the clouds of international Islamic fanaticism are growing and they are planning massive new attacks against this country. And the best that our president can muster to the threats, is to close Guantanamo and to assert that a new day is dawning and that America must first apologize for its mistakes. And our apologist in chief has been busily apologizing for the entire first six months of his presidency.

Someone once said: "There are those would watch things happen, there are those who make things happen and there are those who wonder what happened. I firmly believe that our president has a firm grip on two of those realities as we speak. And it is only a matter of time before the latter reality becomes his epitaph.

Boxer is no lady

Overheard at a Senate hearing yesterday:

"Could you say 'senator' instead of 'ma'am?' It's just a thing. I worked so hard to get that title. I'd appreciate it."

--Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) to Brigadier General Michael Walsh during Senate hearing Tuesday, when he the general repeatedly said, "Yes, ma'am," and "No, ma'am," when answering Boxer's questions at hearing she chaired on New Orleans' levee system.

What an arrogant (rhymes with witch).

She worked so hard for that title? Give me a break you arrogant leftist ignoramus. You got that right sugar, it is a "thing" of yours ain't it. An unmitigated arrogance and disrespect for the military period thing.

Cartoons say it all

Borrowed from the Brutally Honest blog.

This cartoon points directly and vividly IMO, to the similarities between what is actually occurring as it concerns Iran and the stylized Van Gogh surrelist vision of Obama's administration.

While this cartoon is just pointedly obvious and direct in its approach.

Star Light, Star Bright, First Star I've .....Holy Crap!

Teen Scarred After Artist Inks 56 Tattoos on Face

OK, I have a couple of tattoos? And they ain't nothing that you can sleep through I can attest to that. You can't even be drunk and oblivious to whats going on. So unless this little girl was slap stoned out of her mind or passed out due to drugs or alcohol, or a combination of both? There is absolutely no way in hell that she simply fell asleep and woke up to some big surprise that she never bargained for.

Secondly, in my experience, tattoo artist work on a fee basis by the hour required for the art requested. That is all known and discussed before the fact and a price arrived at before the first needle touches skin.

Talk about coloring outside the lines? There is absolutely no way anyone in the business would just leave all bounds of common sense and tattoo anyone with anything that they had not already both bargained for and paid for. This ain't the Bounty on leave in Tahiti and Mr. Christian gone mad.

This girl is lying through her teeth.

Absolutely Unbelievable (Updated)

Should ABC now become the acronym for America's Barack Concessions? This is absolutely unbelievable in my opinion. Never in the history of this nation, has media on any level or in any form, so thoroughly subjugated and prostituted itself so thoroughly and completely as ABC has now agreed to do with the Obama administration.

My God what is this nation coming to? An abject and utter in your face dictatorship? Tell me where I am wrong on this.

Tue Jun 16 2009 08:45:10 ET

On the night of June 24, the media and government become one, when ABC turns its programming over to President Obama and White House officials to push government run health care -- a move that has ignited an ethical firestorm!

Highlights on the agenda:

ABCNEWS anchor Charlie Gibson will deliver WORLD NEWS from the Blue Room of the White House.

The network plans a primetime special -- 'Prescription for America' -- originating from the East Room, exclude opposing voices on the debate.


Late Monday night, Republican National Committee Chief of Staff Ken McKay fired off a complaint to the head of ABCNEWS:

Dear Mr. Westin:

As the national debate on health care reform intensifies, I am deeply concerned and disappointed with ABC's astonishing decision to exclude opposing voices on this critical issue on June 24, 2009. Next Wednesday, ABC News will air a primetime health care reform “town hall” at the White House with President Barack Obama. In addition, according to an ABC News report, GOOD MORNING AMERICA, WORLD NEWS, NIGHTLINE and ABC’s web news “will all feature special programming on the president’s health care agenda.” This does not include the promotion, over the next 9 days, the president’s health care agenda will receive on ABC News programming.

Today, the Republican National Committee requested an opportunity to add our Party's views to those of the President's to ensure that all sides of the health care reform debate are presented. Our request was rejected. I believe that the President should have the ability to speak directly to the America people. However, I find it outrageous that ABC would prohibit our Party's opposing thoughts and ideas from this national debate, which affects millions of ABC viewers.

In the absence of opposition, I am concerned this event will become a glorified infomercial to promote the Democrat agenda. If that is the case, this primetime infomercial should be paid for out of the DNC coffers. President Obama does not hold a monopoly on health care reform ideas or on free airtime. The President has stated time and time again that he wants a bipartisan debate. Therefore, the Republican Party should be included in this primetime event, or the DNC should pay for your airtime.

Ken McKay
Republican National Committee
Chief of Staff


ABCNEWS Senior Vice President Kerry Smith on Tuesday responded to the RNC complaint, saying it contained 'false premises':

"ABCNEWS prides itself on covering all sides of important issues and asking direct questions of all newsmakers -- of all political persuasions -- even when others have taken a more partisan approach and even in the face of criticism from extremes on both ends of the political spectrum. ABCNEWS is looking for the most thoughtful and diverse voices on this issue.

"ABCNEWS alone will select those who will be in the audience asking questions of the president. Like any programs we broadcast, ABC News will have complete editorial control. To suggest otherwise is quite unfair to both our journalists and our audience."

ABC is refusing to air paid ads during its White House health care presentation, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned, including a paid-for alternative viewpoint!

The development comes a day after the network denied a request by the Republican National Committee to feature a representative of the party's views during the Obama special.

Conservatives for Patients Rights requested the rates to buy a 60-second spot immediately preceding 'Prescription for America'.

Statement from Rick Scott, chairman of Conservatives for Patients Rights:

"It is unfortunate - and unusual - that ABC is refusing to accept paid advertising that would present an alternative viewpoint for the White House health care event. Health care is an issue that touches every American and all potential pieces of legislation have carried a pricetag in excess of $1 trillion of taxpayers' money. The American people deserve a healthy, robust debate on this issue and ABC's decision - as of now - to exclude even paid advertisements that present an alternative view does a disservice to the public. Our organization is more than willing to purchase ad time on ABC to present an alternative viewpoint and our hope is that ABC will reconsider having such viewpoints be part of this crucial debate for the American people. We were surprised to hear that paid advertisements would not be accepted when we inquired and we would certainly be open to purchasing time if ABC would reconsider."


So now.....that means that they are completely wired into the Obama propaganda machine. When all media is in the midst of belt tightening and lay offs and work force reductions? ABC seems to be weathering it all rather well. Obviously no need for advertising revenues that are not of the correct sort or are possibly in conflict with their newly found love and partnership with the White House.

Letterman Apologizes

Letterman re-addresses Palin: 'I had no idea [Willow] was there'

I am going to paste his entire commentary and apology, as I believe that it is relevant to what has happened in review of context.

“All right, here – I’ve been thinking about this situation with Governor Palin and her family now for about a week – it was a week ago tonight, and maybe you know about it, maybe you don’t know about it. But there was a joke that I told, and I thought I was telling it about the older daughter being at Yankee Stadium. And it was kind of a coarse joke. There’s no getting around it, but I never thought it was anybody other than the older daughter, and before the show, I checked to make sure in fact that she is of legal age, 18. Yeah. But the joke really, in and of itself, can’t be defended. The next day, people are outraged. They’re angry at me because they said, ‘How could you make a lousy joke like that about the 14-year-old girl who was at the ball game?’ And I had, honestly, no idea that the 14-year-old girl, I had no idea that anybody was at the ball game except the governor and I was told at the time she was there with Rudy Giuliani … and I really should have made the joke about Rudy …” (audience applauds) “But I didn’t, and now people are getting angry and they’re saying, ‘Well, how can you say something like that about a 14-year-old girl, and does that make you feel good to make those horrible jokes about a kid who’s completely innocent, minding her own business,’ and, turns out, she was at the ball game. I had no idea she was there. So she’s now at the ball game, and people think that I made the joke about her. And, but still, I’m wondering, ‘Well, what can I do to help people understand that I would never make a joke like this?’ I’ve never made jokes like this as long as we’ve been on the air, 30 long years, and you can’t really be doing jokes like that. And I understand, of course, why people are upset. I would be upset myself.

“And then I was watching the Jim Lehrer ‘Newshour’ – this commentator, the columnist Mark Shields, was talking about how I had made this indefensible joke about the 14-year-old girl, and I thought, ‘Oh, boy, now I’m beginning to understand what the problem is here. It’s the perception rather than the intent.’ It doesn’t make any difference what my intent was, it’s the perception. And, as they say about jokes, if you have to explain the joke, it’s not a very good joke. And I’m certainly – ” (audience applause) “– thank you. Well, my responsibility – I take full blame for that. I told a bad joke. I told a joke that was beyond flawed, and my intent is completely meaningless compared to the perception. And since it was a joke I told, I feel that I need to do the right thing here and apologize for having told that joke. It’s not your fault that it was misunderstood, it’s my fault. That it was misunderstood.” (audience applauds) “Thank you. So I would like to apologize, especially to the two daughters involved, Bristol and Willow, and also to the governor and her family and everybody else who was outraged by the joke. I’m sorry about it and I’ll try to do better in the future. Thank you very much.” (audience applause)

The bottom line....I believe that David Letterman would have never apologized if he and CBS hadn't felt the heat on this for the past week. They have lost audience share and advertisers over this blunder. And the sad reality is? He is probably being honest in his most recent remarks as opposed to that BS apology he was floating the day after his remarks.

I suppose that on the night in question, that he just felt that he was being his usual comic smart ass and had no idea that Sarah Palin's 14 year old daughter Willow was at that ball game with her.

Personally, I believe that this apology would have had far more benefit and effect had it been tendered immediately. But it wasn't. Instead, Letterman felt that he would pursue a contrived path and continue to make jokes about the incident and play stupid. Obviously that didn't work.

What a difference a week makes. Never fear though, this won't have any lasting impression on Letterman's success. He will continue to have his regular audience of loyal leftist loons who will continue to swoon over his top ten lists and stupid pet tricks. But you can bet that from here on out, that he will vet anything that he plans to say about Sarah Palin and her family.

Netanyahu's Two State Solution (not)

Netanyahu accepts limited Palestinian state

The headlines would tend to reflect some significant change or shift in the Israeli position concerning the Palestinians and the supposed two state solution. But a cursory examination of Prime Minister Netanyahu's speech today doesn't quite support that reality IMO. Not on any level.

Netanyahu and the Israelis are certainly being pressured to accept the supposed two state solution, but Netanyahus words today fall way short of that ever becoming a reality while he is prime minister.

The plan outlined by Netanyahu requires a disarmed Palestinian state.

"In any peace agreement, the territory under Palestinian control must be disarmed, with solid security guarantees for Israel," he said.

But not so fast skippy, the Palestinians will never agree to an arrangement like that. No more than Israel would agree to a disarmament.

He then followed up with this:

"I call on you, our Palestinian neighbors, and to the leadership of the Palestinian Authority: Let us begin peace negotiations immediately, without preconditions," he said. "Israel is committed to international agreements and expects all the other parties to fulfill their obligations as well."

Excuse me, but Netanyahu just placed the biggest precondition in existence on the table, then turns around and tells the Palestinians that they must abandon any preconditions that they may be considering.

Like I said, this is not a path to peace. this was Netanyahu going through the motions and positioning himself to argue that Israel had made an offer. Never mind that it is an offer that they know the Palestinians will never accept.

The Srinking of America

US cities may have to be bulldozed in order to survive

I knew once I saw the banner headline on Drudge yesterday afternoon, that there must be some unique and revealing Obama perspective to be observed concerning how to muddle through this recession and save America. And sure enough? There is was. It was all laid out and explained by this genius from Flint Michigan. All that would be required? Would be for America to bulldoze our blues away.

The government looking at expanding a pioneering scheme in Flint, one of the poorest US cities, which involves razing entire districts and returning the land to nature.

Local politicians believe the city must contract by as much as 40 per cent, concentrating the dwindling population and local services into a more viable area.

The radical experiment is the brainchild of Dan Kildee, treasurer of Genesee County, which includes Flint.

Now, from reading this article, one might assume that this individual from Flint had stumbled across some unique and wonderful method for managing and saving cities. But what it the truth of the matter?

The truth as I see it, is that about all that is accomplished, is the temporary employment of a few demolition specialists. And these would probably be paid for with Obama's stimulus package that he has mortgaged America to finance.

Bulldozing properties at public expense accomplishes what? Aside from the expenditure of public money. It certainly doesn't turn these properties into tax or revenue producing properties. But the greenies press on and now that they have a sympathetic ear in the White House? Look to see this program expanded and coming to a community near you soon.

What utter idiocy! We are not talking about development or even re-development here. We are talking about spending our already dwindling capital, to effect a warm and fuzzy feeling for the back to nature folks.

I am sorry, but it is plans and schemes like these that really get me steamed. Who do these people think will pay for such flights of experimental fantasy? Sure they know that it has to be paid for, but as usual they look to OPM to get the job done for them

For those unaware, OPM is other people's money. The only financial reality that has ever existed in socialist Nirvana. In the absence of OPM? Socialism immediately collapses. And it collapses faster than a bulldozed building ever could.

Hate Speech & Hate Preach

What is hate speech? Obviously it is what 'they' say it is. Who is they? The loyal socialist left no less.

I Am a Product of Affirmative Action

And this is the same woman that later espoused that her rich experiences as a Latina woman gives her a better ability to judge, than the experiences of any white male. And this is the woman currently being considered as a justice on the US Supreme Court.

Real Men Don't Apologize To Slutty Stewardesses

Did David Letterman go too far with Willow Palin joke?

Letterman owes women an apology

For the past week, the battle of words by David Letterman has been waged against Sarah Palin and her children. Once again I should say, as there always seems to be room enough for the crass and obnoxious, just as long as it is aimed at the right people.

Or should I say, just as long as it is aimed at the people on the right. David Letterman is a pathetic excuse for a comic and has been for the last two decades IMO. He wasn't that funny when those like Johnny Carson gave him his first big breaks in the business. And not a lot has changed in the past thirty years. The man's humor is more pathetic than funny and his renewed attacks against Sarah Palin just reinforce the reality of the sick minded angst that passes for humor on the left today.

Even yesterday's pathetic mea culpa wasn't really an apology by Letterman. More of a primer on why those like Sarah had somehow missed the grandiose points of humor so immediately graspable by the knowing elite. What a load of bull chips. The only good news of late as it concerns David Letterman, is that he is passing his shelf life and his network will soon be looking for something other than this stank anachronism of angst humor to pay the bills. Sarah Palin doesn't need defense against this lout, she handled him in the fashion that he should have been handled, as the filth minded diddler in insipid humor that he is. As a pervert of mind and politics and one more comfortable in the outhouse of humor than in the mainstream.

'Them Jews' Won't Let Obama Talk to Jeremiah

'Them Jews' Won't Let Obama Talk to Him

"Them Jews aren't going to let him talk to me. I told my baby daughter, that he'll talk to me in five years when he's a lame duck, or in eight years when he's out of office," Wright said, according to Virginia's Daily Press. "They will not let him ... talk to somebody who calls a spade what it is."

Now that should be some hilarious stuff, but the reality of this man's racism and it's influence on a sitting American president is palpable. Sadly, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright is at least in part absolutely correct. It's not the Jews what are preventing Obama from talking to him, but it is the political insiders inside the national democratic party and those attached to Obama at the hip in the White House.

Miranda Rights for Terrorists

Miranda Rights for Terrorists

When 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammad was captured on March 1, 2003, he was not cooperative. “I’ll talk to you guys after I get to New York and see my lawyer,” he said, according to former CIA Director George Tenet.

Of course, KSM did not get a lawyer until months later, after his interrogation was completed, and Tenet says that the information the CIA obtained from him disrupted plots and saved lives. “I believe none of these successes would have happened if we had had to treat KSM like a white-collar criminal – read him his Miranda rights and get him a lawyer who surely would have insisted that his client simply shut up,” Tenet wrote in his memoirs.

If Tenet is right, it’s a good thing KSM was captured before Barack Obama became president. For, the Obama Justice Department has quietly ordered FBI agents to read Miranda rights to high value detainees captured and held at U.S. detention facilities in Afghanistan, according a senior Republican on the House Intelligence Committee. “The administration has decided to change the focus to law enforcement. Here’s the problem. You have foreign fighters who are targeting US troops today – foreign fighters who go to another country to kill Americans. We capture them…and they’re reading them their rights – Mirandizing these foreign fighters,” says Representative Mike Rogers, who recently met with military, intelligence and law enforcement officials on a fact-finding trip to Afghanistan.

Isn't this lovely. Known terrorists will now be transported to the US and given their Miranda warnings and access to ACLU styled cilvil liberties attorneys paid for by the US taxpayer.

And as George Tenet rightly points out, had KSM been treated like they treated terrorist during the Clinton years, we would have already suffered another attack to rival what happened to us on 9/11.

Someone once said, 'the time has long since passed for these temporary occupants of the White House, to continue to be allowed determine the destiny of this country.' That man was General Douglas MacArthur

If there was ever a time when those sentiments were more true, I am not aware of it. The president is literally setting the stage for this nation to be victimized once again, by radical Islam and its agents already in this country.

Air France Terrorist Connection?

Terror Names Linked To Doomed Flight AF 447

Say it isn't so! No, not after almost two weeks of speculation. Not after blaming everything from the pilots to the gauge manufacturers. Not after hustling weather and lightning theories and completely ignoring the obvious.

The bottom line remains, an Airbus 300 with 258 passengers was literally obliterated from the skies over the mid Atlantic, while in route from Brazil to Paris almost two weeks ago.

And it has taken this long for the first whispers of terrorism to be raised in the public conversation by the media?

Please...... Allah be praised.

London's Metropolitan Police All Water Logged

London's Metropolitan Police accused of waterboarding suspects

The torture claims are part of an investigation which also includes accusations that evidence was fabricated and suspects’ property was stolen. It has already led to the abandonment of a drugs trial and the suspension from duty of several officers.

Isn't this an interesting allegation. No proof mind you, just allegations and accusations. But in light of all the scoff and guff coming out of the UK as aimed at the US over waterboarding? This could prove to be a bit of a 'sticky wicket' for those in the UK of the pious stripe. (and there are many).

It will be interesting to see how this all plays out over the next several days and weeks. It might even take the spotlight away from the recently revised allegations involving Abu Graib. Stand by for incoming Picadilly!

Stones and glass houses is always such a fun game when the bag of rocks gets passed around.

The British Cat in The Hat

I really like this fellow Daniel Hannan, he says it like it is and without equivocation or request of pardon for his positions. This was part of his victory speech on the 4th, having been reelected as an MEP to the EU parliament.

And he is calling it as it should be, it is time for Brown to go. Or else they will come after him soon with torches and ropes.

As Teddy Roosevelt would have said? Bully!


And this from MSNBC, arguably the most rabidly defensive of the messianic one. And even they are forced to take note of his exclusive use of the teleprompter

Now, a look see at TOTUS

Barack Obama's Teleprompter

I like this guy. I put him on my blog roll.

Night On The Town Part Deux

People watch and take photos from upstairs windows as President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama arrive for dinner at a restaurant in Paris, Saturday, June 6, 2009. (AP Photo/Gerald Herbert)

For the Obamas, date night in Paris

It's been what? A week now? Since the pres took the first wife on an all taxpayer expense paid trip for dinner and a show in New York city? And here he was last night in the city of lights, back at it again.

Now in all fairness, he didn't fire up Air Force One and all that goes with it just to entertain Michelle in Paris, but he did forgo the customary diplomatic courtesies while on his European visit, so that he could once again do as he pleased and satisfy his own personal interests once his immediate obligations were completed.

There had already been rumblings in the news on Friday, that the president had decided to pass up a dinner with French President Sarkozsy and his wife. And apparently that was a significant rub to the Frenchman, as he and the wife had apparently made plans for the private dinner and expended more than some amount of effort and expense in the preparation. But president Obama put a quick kabash to any of that, citing his pressing schedule and his need to get back to America and presumably back to work for the American people. (you gotta love a guy like that).

Obama hits back at Euro snub rumors

"I have a very tough schedule and I would love nothing more than to have a leisurely week in Paris, stroll down the Seine, take my wife out to a nice meal, have a picnic in Luxembourg Gardens," Obama said, pointing out that he was caught up in dealing with the pressing financial crisis at home.

"Those days are over for the moment," Obama said, but promised to spend more time in France when he is an ex-president.

I believe that is the example of the liberal favored tactic of...."admit nothing, deny everything and launch counter allegations" that I have witnessed of late. And the part about him being an ex-president? Well that is certainly an appealing thought.

Mean while, no one was inviting the president and wife for a week on the Riviera, sitting on the beach and sipping pina coladas. It was relatively simple and basic international diplomacy, the president of France and wife, were simply attempting to be good hosts and invite the president of the United States and wife to a private dinner.

But President Obama was having none of that, as he apparently didn't have time with his busy schedule to fit in a dinner date with the president of France. But he certainly found time to take Michelle to a Paris bistro for dinner, before leaving to fly home on the largest and most expensive luxury jet on the planet.

It certainly must be nice being president of the United States and it must be even better knowing how to flaunt it and laugh in the face of all who take any exception. But give it time, all that will change and change quickly IMO. The honeymoon hangover is about to become apparent for all to see.

A Major Gaff For An Embattled Brown.

While watching the ceremonies earlier today, I was shocked by this gaffe. Obviously a slip of tongue, but one that is oh so tragic on a hallowed day such as this.

D Day Remembered

Today is the 65th anniversary Please take a few moments to listen to President Ronald Reagan's stirring speech of twenty five years ago, in remembrance of the terrors and the heroes that passed through the portals of history on that day.

Then listen to and watch the other speech that he gave that day.

Death of a Legend

Death of a Legend? Well not exactly. David Carradine Was Desperate For Money is the latest report

And before that, the initial reports Wednesday were that the star had been found dead in his Thailand hotel room. Dead at 72 was the initial report, no further details. And I thought to! Here was a guy that was always one who was reportedly into his health. And dead at 72?

Then by late Wednesday the reports were leaking out that he had been found hung in his hotel room closet and immediately rumors of suicide began to circulate. With some reports even recounting supposed past media interviews where he had discussed suicide and mentioned thinking of it often.

Then by late Wednesday night, the reports of 'accidental hanging' began to surface. That immediately sounded funny to me. How can you accidentally hang yourself? Then it struck me, I have seen this all before. But certainly not David Carradine? Egads! The man was 72 years old for heaven's sake!

But yes, by late Thursday the truth and reality was escaping the media blackout and the truth of his death was being revealed. David Carradine had been found dead, hung by a cord around his throat and attached to his penis, while naked inside a closet in a Thai hotel room.

Talk about being in the closet? This is a real life instance of the metaphor mimicking the stereotype in real life. In either event David Carradine's death is a shame IMO. I always liked him as Caine in Kung Fu and recently having seen his guest appearances on the Discovery channel.

But yes, it looks as if he died by his own hand, albeit unintentionally.

Obama's Mid East Headlines Today

The front page of the Drudge Report is full of articles of the messianic one's speech this morning in Cairo. Speaking to the Muslim world, Obama mixed metaphors between the Koran and the Bible and then sought to assure his middle eastern audience, that he would never seek a world where one nation was elevated above another nation in his view of a new world order.

The president called for a new beginning between America and the Muslim world and his offerings and metaphors were replete with concessions and implied subjugation of America, seemingly tendered as a peace offering to the supposed religion of peace.

While the messianic one waxed poetic in his recitals of Koranic and biblical verse, he also peppered his speech with subtle nods and concessions that were neither lost on his audience in the middle east or lost on the folks back home.

Inviting HAMAS to become part of the middle east peace talks is literally akin to the shepherd inviting the wolf to dine with the sheep, but he wasn't finished yet. He followed that up with the validation that Iran is entitled to nuclear power for peaceful purposes (of course). Yet when it comes to our own energy needs back home in America? We are told by the messianic one that we need to seek alternative energy sources. We must not be good enough.

That's right. The president of the United States, (our president) told Muslims all across the middle east today, that it is perfectly acceptable for them to pursue nuclear power, but we here in America are told that we need to find another way.

And to top it off, the president of the United States has now invited a known Islamic radical terrorist organization to come and take part in what he calls middle eastern peace talks, yet in doing so, he discounts if not outright denies their long and bloody terrorist history.

Now....for those interested? For those not completely blinded and made stone deaf by the crooning voice of our modern day messianic savior, (AKA The Man of La Mancha)? Yes friends and neighbors, those are the lyrics to the 'Impossible Dream' that he is humming. And for those interested? Here is a bit of first hand experience and information concerning our newly found brothers in the middle east. Particularly those in Lebanon and calling themselves HAMAS and no being invited to come sup at Israel's table in peace.

There are certainly those who are every bit as naive, ignorant and stupid as Barack Obama when it comes to the middle east and any illusions of peace. But the Israelis and their newly elected prime minister Netanyahu are part of that delusion IMO.

A Partisan Hack & The Whole Package

So which is it Harry? Do we have the whole package here as you said here? Or are you just demonstrating that affable ability possessed by elder statesmen of the party like yourself? That ability to do as you are told by the party and its socialist ideology and to hell with reading the particulars or the fine print when it comes to demonstrating any judgment or leadership.

This is arguably laughable, if it weren't so deadly serious. Talk about blatant partisanship and the closed minded debate of liberals. Their passing pork filled bills that never get read pales in comparison to the egregiousness of this.

This woman stands to be the next Supreme Court Justice of the United States? and Senate majority leader Reid is on the one hand all smiles with the adoring media and talking about the whole package of Sonia Sotomayor. And later on? His true political colors and absent interest in the entire subject matter are revealed for all to see.

Harry Reid is a hack and he needs to be sent packing and defeated in the 2010 midterms. America deserves better than this partisan hack.

Yep, He Really Is The Manchurian Candidate

The Emergence of President Obama's Muslim Roots

Suffice it to say, that I could write and elaborate on a lot of what is in this report. But in all fairness to the reporter, he seems to have covered it well on his on. And an ABC News report no less.

So let's just highlight a bit of it.

During a conference call in preparation for President Obama's trip to
Cairo, Egypt, where he will address the Muslim world, deputy National
Security Adviser for Strategic Communications Denis McDonough said
"the President himself experienced Islam on three continents before he
was able to -- or before he's been able to visit, really, the heart of
the Islamic world -- you know, growing up in Indonesia, having a
Muslim father -- obviously Muslim Americans (are) a key part of
Illinois and Chicago."

Just another example of a junior White House appointment speaking and acting out of turn? Or is this the first sign of ease and comfort on the part of the Obama administration, as it reveals its president for who he really was all the time.

With insane rumors suggesting he was some sort of Muslim Manchurian
candidate, then-Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., and his campaign did
everything they could to emphasize his Christianity and de-emphasize
the fact that his father, Barack Obama Sr., was born Muslim.

Yes, I remember it well.

Back then, the campaign's "Fight the Smears" website addressed the
candidate's faith without mentioning his father's religion:

"Barack Obama is a committed Christian. He was sworn into the Senate
on his family Bible. He has regularly attended church with his wife
and daughters for years. But shameful, shadowy attackers have been
lying about Barack’s religion, claiming he is a Muslim instead of a
committed Christian. When people fabricate stories about someone’s
faith to denigrate them politically, that’s an attack on people of all
faiths. Make sure everyone you know is aware of this deception."

Any further questions?

Go read the entire article for yourself. Absolutely amazing.

One Man's Terrorist

Someone once commented as it concerned the American founding fathers...."one man's patriot, is another man's terrorist." And that had the American revolution of failed, George Washington and the signers of the Declaration of Independence would have been hung as traitors to the crown of England.

What of the modern day extrapolation of the same philosophy of concept?

Last Sunday, an individual entered the Church of George Tiller in Wichita Kansas and shot the renowned abortionist to death. His killer was soon captured and every day since, he has been represented by those who support abortion in America as a terrorist. He is an alleged militia member.

Yesterday, an individual drove up in front of an Army recruiting station in Little Rock Arkansas and shot and killed an innocent soldier and critically wounded another. The murderer was soon apprehended by police. And now it has been reported that he is a recent convert to Islam and that he had just returned from Yemen. A country where he obviously honed his hatred of America and acquired at the least a desire to become a Muslim inspired terrorist in his own country.

"You can't get corporate jets. You can't go take a trip to Las Vegas, or go down to the Super Bowl on the taxpayers' dime."

Well.........not exactly.

It seems that this president can comfortably scold others, while blatantly flaunting his own egregious waste of the taxpayer's money.

The cost of a NYC weekend

Looks like the cost of the presidential date was $250,000 but he did cut the rest of us a bit of slack. He didn't take the big "corporate jet" the 747. He simply dialed up a smaller one from his fleet and then he and the wife jaunted on up to New York.

After all.....he did promise her the treat during last years presidential campaign.

The Enemy Among Us.

Yesterday before noon, a lunatic approached two soldiers standing outside of an Arkansas Army Recruiting office and opened fire with an AK-47. Killing one young man and critically wounding the other.

Man upset at military shoots 2

Both of these young men had only recently completed their basic training, now one is dead and the other will probably be permanently disabled for life if he lives. Why? That is the question that should be first on the lips of any American who has heard of this tragedy. I have to admit that it was my first emotional thought upon hearing of this tragedy yesterday. My next thoughts were a welling anger as I waited to hear why and who had been involved and based on what motive.

Those two questions have now been answered. The who is an American and the why is, he is a "recently converted member of Islam," combined with his hatred of his country, its military and his fellow citizens.

I am so enraged by the thought that someone could do something so hate filled and egregious to these two innocent young men. And yet to think, here once again is yet another example of what the true meaning of the supposed religion of peace really means, when examined.

When it comes to Islam there is no peace and their is no love for these radicals, only hatred and anger and the senseless murder of any who oppose them and their version of God. This is the religion that people are afraid of offending in this country. This is the religion that no one is allowed to speak of in light of the actions of its members. This is the religion that we as Americans are told to observe as peaceful and abide by the fact that not all Muslims are representative of the few. Yet this is the same religion that its other members never speak up against or out against, when its members commit atrocities. Regardless of how murderous the actions of their brothers in the faith, rank and file Muslims never react with any sense of outrage against senseless murder.

And as a result once again, we have death and mayhem on our doorstep and at least one innocent young man is dead at the hands of a religious ideologue and American Muslim jihadist.

As an almost side note in the news reports this morning, this individual had recently traveled to Yemen to receive his Muslim radical indoctrination and was supposedly under investigation by the FBI.

I wonder how all that is coming along.
