Hypocrisy, Thy Name Is Liberal

"Breathes there the man with soul so dead
Who never to himself hath said,
This is my own, my native land!
Whose heart hath ne’er within him burned,
As home his footsteps he hath turned
From wandering on a foreign strand!
If such there breathe, go, mark him well;
For him no minstrel raptures swell;
High though his titles, proud his name,
Boundless his wealth as wish can claim
Despite those titles, power, and pelf,
The wretch, concentred all in self,
Living, shall forfeit fair renown,
And, doubly dying, shall go down
To the vile dust from whence he sprung,
Unwept, unhonored , and unsung."
~ Sir Walter Scott

The preceding poem describes a man who has forsaken his country, who has demonstrated his hatred for freedom and liberty, a man who has embraced our enemies, and rejected our allies.

A man named Barack Hussein Obama.

In a comment on my last post some anonymous commenter who is too cowardly and/or too stupid to even create a name, posted this comment in response to American patriot and veteran Trader Rick's comment:


I've just forwarded this to the Secret Service. Good luck!"

Granted, Rick's comment was a little over the top, but it was a comment born of frustration and a general feeling of hopelessness created by the Marxist policies of Barack Hussein Obama. He sees, as I do, the systematic destruction of the very principles which made the United States of America the greatest, strongest, and freest country on Earth.

A destruction fomented by Barack Hussein Obama.

This is my response to "anonymous":

Sir or Madam, before you attack Conservatives over a few sporadic overzealous comments and placards that Liberally biased media type people claim is prevalent at various rallies across the United States, perhaps you should watch the following video:

h/t Joe-Joe Politico

I'm thinking if the Secret Service did nothing about the Liberal's vitreous attacks labeling George W. Bush as Hitler and their outright unconcealed death threats directed at him, I don't think Rick has anything to fear from your classless and cowardly threats against him.

You, on the other hand, should seriously consider professional counseling.

The New Leader Of The Free World

"All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing" ~ Edmund Burke

Friday, Barack Hussein Obama stood before the United Nations assembly and, as he is wont to do, apologized for America, and then proceeded to announce he intends to make the United States virtually defenseless against attacks from hostile nations by promising the world he is going to get rid of our nuclear arsenal.

He did not get the same assurances from the other nations.

Well, he may have, but there is no evidence they would tell him the truth. There is a strong possibility, however, that Obama would naively believe them if they did.

After all, we have heard these promises before, haven't we? Think North Korea, The Soviet Union, Iraq, Iran, etc.

Libya's Moamar Quaddafi also spoke at the United Nations, at first praising Obama and then, attacking the United Nations.

What's wrong with this picture?

The same thing that's wrong with Obama bowing to a Saudi king, embracing Hugo Chavez, and supporting an ousted Honduran Marxist dictator, of course.

Obama praises any and all Marxist dictators around the world, and, at the same time, accuses Israel of maintaining "illegitimate settlements" in the Gaza strip.

This, coming from a man who claims he is a Christian.

As any Christian with even a rudimentary knowledge of the history of Israel knows, the Israelis are God's chosen people, and the Gaza strip is included in the land God gave Israel.

There can be no more legitimate claim to any land than this.

No one may usurp God's authority, nor can anyone take from anyone else what God has given them.

Obama, if indeed he is a Christian and a God fearing man, as he says, should know this.

Why then, does he reject Israel?

Additionally, the Islamo-Nazi Presidential figurehead of Iran, Mahmoud Achmadinajhad, addressed the assembly and continued his oft repeated claims that the holocaust never happened and reminded the world that his mission is to wipe Israel off the map.

Obama, by his conspicuous silence, gave his assent to this madman.

Then, the leader of the free world stepped to the podium to speak, and he pulled no punches:

"To those who gave this Holocaust denier a hearing, I say on behalf of my people. ... Have you no shame? Have you no decency?"
Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel, said.

He also scolded the United Nations for giving the Iranian president "legitimacy" just six decades after the Holocaust.

"What a disgrace," Netanyahu said. "What a mockery of the charter of the United Nations."

Recently, the United Nations so-called "Human Rights Council", which includes among it's membership most of the worlds most notorious human rights abusing nations, issued a report that condemned Israel for its defense of their God-given legitimate settlements in the Gaza Strip last January.

"What a travesty," Netanyahu said. "Israel justly defended itself against terror."

He said the latest report presents a test to the international community: "Will you stand with Israel or will you stand with the terrorists?"

Benjamin Netanyahu stood up to the world. He did not back down. He stood brave and defiant in the face of an overwhelming disapproving body.

He spoke the truth.

This is a trait exhibited only by true leaders. A leader who does not cower before Fascist dictators and corrupt nations.

A man with courage and integrity.

In short, Netanyahu is the polar opposite of Barack Hussein Obama.

While Netanytahu stands for liberty and freedom, Obama panders to the Marxist, oppressive dictators and Islamo-Nazis, and insults America's strongest allies.

Liberals, Marxists, Socialists, Communists (but I repeat myself) like to call Barack Hussein Obama the leader of the free world. And, indeed, there is no doubt Obama wants to be the leader of the entire world.

But he is neither the leader of the free world or the entire world. He is an embarrassment to the United States.

A narcissistic, incompetent, naive buffoon.

Mark Levin says Netanyahu is the leader of the free world.

I agree.

I Love That Big Band Sound!

Saturday, I was flipping channels on the Television, and came across PBS, which was airing one of their incessant pledge drives, and featuring big band music from the forties.

I like this music and I really enjoyed the program, except when they interrupted it to ask for money. Not that I would mind giving money to them for this kind of programming, but in truth, the only time they air such great programs is when they have pledge drives. Then, they lie to you and say this is the kind of programs we will get if we donate money to them.

It's just not true. When they aren't having pledge drives, the majority of their programming is boring. And insufferably Liberal, like Bill Moyers.

Anyway, I enjoyed the music and I went to youtube to find one of the songs featured on the program to share with both of my readers.

Here it is:

Oh Yeah? Well, My Dad Can Beat Up Your Dad!

"When a true genius appears, you can know him by this sign: that all the dunces are in a confederacy against him." ~ Jonathan Swift

Recently I noticed an article by the AP entitled, "Breaking: Glenn Beck guilty of rape and murder?".

Disclaimer: The article I linked to above is not the article I first noticed. But the AP article got their info from this article.

The photographer who took this picture for Time Magazine, Jill Greenberg, specializes in making conservatives look bad. h/t Jim O'Sullivan

You always know when a Conservative is getting under the Liberals skin when they start circulating vicious baseless rumors about him, such as the above silly allegation.

Every Liberal who ever comments here or at other Conservative blogs on my blogroll has taken their shots at Beck, as well.

Personally, although I enjoy listening to Beck's radio show, I find it rather painful to watch his television program. His goofy antics while in the midst of conducting serious interviews with guest experts, even those experts sympathetic to his point of view, I find particularly annoying. It makes me tend to question his sincerity.

Regardless of how I perceive him, I stop short of accusing him of inciting dissent for dissent's sake.

I believe Obama invites dissent himself by his policies and associations.

Beck merely asks questions.

Obama's defenders give credence to Becks insinuations by their rush to defend and deny them.

If the opening quotation by Jonathon Swift is true, Liberal dunces must indeed take Beck very seriously as they appear to be wetting their pants in fear of him and his investigations of Obama's questionable associations.

Actually, if they weren't so serious about bringing Beck down, this whole ridiculous attempt to attack the messenger would be laughable.

They remind me of schoolchildren on the playground taunting each other while being afraid and/or unable to back up their taunts with action.

"Your mother wears combat boots! Nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah!"

Additionally, the most recent personal attacks involve baseless and indefensible charges of racism.

Of these recent charges, Lone Ranger points out that the NAACP was founded by Republicans, the KKK by Democrats. And as he says, 'Nuff said!"

If these shameless, reprobate, Liberal apologists had anything concrete on Beck, or Limbaugh, or Hannity, or any other Conservative who is routinely kicking the butts of all the commentators at MSNBC, they would surely have found a sympathetic ear in any one of dozens of politically ambitious Democrat prosecutors such as Mike Nifong, etc. by now.

But they can't, because there is nothing to be found.

So, after failing to find any adhesive dirt on these Conservatives, they resort to the next best thing:

Baseless, fictional, personal attacks.

Obama Tells The Truth For Once

Kanye West is a jackass" ~ Barack Hussein Obama

Finally! Obama gets something right and the State run media rushes to cover it up for him.

That's right. ABC made sure his record stays at 100% wrong on everything.

This morning, when I logged on, and the AIM home page lit up my monitor screen, there in front of my face was this story.

Now, I don't watch fluffy awards shows, especially since there are so danged many of them and I see no point in watching entertainers pat each other on the back.

Besides, they are really only popularity contests anyway. Who cares? I have better things to do with my time.

But, on the VMA (I think that stands for Video Music Academy) awards show the other day, infamous racist and so-called "hip hop artist" (as if it takes talent to recite bad poetry with bad syncopation and horrific rhymes to a drum beat), Kanye West interrupted fledgling country music star Taylor Swift's VMA acceptance speech to proclaim (in his educated opinion) Beyonce Knowles' video was better than Swifts.

This is the same Kanye West, who went off script during a live broadcast of a variety show that was put together for the purpose of raising money for the victims of hurricane Katrina. Remember that? He grabbed the mic, and angrily proclaimed, "George Bush doesn't care about black people."

Now, during an interview with an unnamed CNBC reporter, Obama casually mentioned, "Kanye West is a jackass", which naturally horrified the Obama worshiping suck-ups in the State run media.

We can't have a President saying negative things about a black man, can we?

Especially if it's the truth!

ABC's Terry Moran apparently didn't think Obama's remark would do much damage to Obama's sterling reputation, because he quickly dashed off a twitter note telling his twitterees all about the gaffe.


Obama told the truth! West IS a jackass!

An hour later, as Moran sat basking in the glow of his presumptive scoop, someone must have revealed to him that his twitter post revealed Obama had had a moment of clarity in discussing the meaningless awards show.

So, ABC subsequently released this statement, in effect, apologizing for telling the truth about Dear Leader:

"This was done before our editorial process had been completed. That was wrong. We apologize to the White House and CNBC".

More evidence that journalism has died in America.

A New Declaration Of Independence

"Every citizen should be a soldier. This was the case with the Greeks and Romans, and must be that of every free state." ~ Thomas Jefferson

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these United States; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present President of the United States of America is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He (Obama) has rejected the will of the people.

He is attempting the overthrow of our Constitutional Republic by attempting to form a Socialist Union with himself as Dictator.

He has offered aid and comfort to our enemies.

He has usurped the powers of our Constitutionally formed Congress, by installing policy makers (or "czars") who are unaccountable to the people and the duly elected Congress.

He has combined with others (Principally, certain equally despotic Democrat legislators) to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent.

For altering fundamentally the form of our Governments.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A President, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

We, therefore, the people of the United States of America, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these United States, solemnly publish and declare, That these United States are, and of right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to Barack Hussein Obama, and that all political connection between them and Barack Hussein Obama, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

We must do whatever we can to protect our freedom and liberty. We must first ask Obama, politely, to resign. If that doesn't work, we must initiate impeachment proceedings against him to have him removed.

If that doesn't work, we must be prepared to shed blood in defense of our Republic and our liberty.

Yesterday, Lone Ranger posted one of his famous "What's in my Head" entries, a video featuring the original Spike Jones and his rather unusual orchestra. That got me thinking of another song recorded by Homer and Jethro long ago, when the earth was cooling, also featuring Spike Jones. So, I went to Youtube and found it. It is a spoof of Ruggero Leoncavallo's famous opus, Pagliacci. Here it is, for your enjoyment:

Back to more serious subjects anon. And on and on and on.

Don't Cry, Mommy. I'm Only Bleeding

"America is the greatest, freest and most decent society in existence. It is an oasis of goodness in a desert of cynicism and barbarism. This country, once an experiment unique in the world, is now the last best hope for the world." ~ Dinesh D'Souza

September 11, 2009

I was going to post a very moving and touching tribute to the memories of those Americans whose lives were taken prematurely on September eleventh, two thousand and one, at the Pentagon in Washington, the World Trade Center in New York City, and that nondescript field in Pennsylvania.

I was going to write a blog entry about the significance of the terrorist attacks on America on that fateful day.

I was going to remind both of my readers how that attack 8 years ago today had changed America. How it intensified our resolve to fight tyranny and hatred all over the world. How we responded to the attacks with renewed patriotism, and how we Americans, as one people, with one voice, rose up in unity to protect our rights as free people to defend our country and her people against fanatical Islamic terrorists.

I was going to write an inspirational post reminding my two readers that America is still the greatest country in the world. Self-governing and free.

Yes, I was going to create a blog post about all those things, and it would have been both moving and encouraging.

But, like most Americans (or so it appears), I have forgotten that anything happened on that day.

"Uh...What Did He Say?"

"A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five." ~ Groucho Marx

Tomorrow is the big day, when Barack Hussein Obama beams his big speech into the schools across America.

I have heard that he intends to make this an Obama worship indoctrination opportunity, and I have also heard that the original speech will not be presented as originally planned due to various concerns and objections from the parents and sometimes, even the teachers and school administrators themselves.

I have not the time nor the inclination to do research on whether either is true.

And, frankly, it doesn't matter in either case.

I'm really not worried that Obama will profoundly influence the children of America into doing (or not doing) any kind of nefarious or righteous deed in the name of Obama.

If Obama thinks he's going to recruit these children into his Socialist church, he doesn't know kids very well.

After all, we're talking about schoolchildren here.

I have five kids. They are all grown now. But I still remember how difficult it was to get them to listen to anything that anyone of authority had to say. My kids are still making stupid decisions that they wouldn't have made if they had simply listened to me when they were "impressionable".

Children of school age, until they are into their twenties, have an attention span of about a minute and a half, if that long.

It would take the faith of Abraham to believe children with that short of an attention span will sit in rapt attention to a speaker who will "uh", "um", "ah", stutter, and stumble his way through a boring monotone speech talking about subjects in which they aren't the least bit interested.

So, while Obama's smiling image is being beamed across the country in High Definition living color to millions of children from Kindergarten to twelth grade, the children he's talking to will be fidgeting, fighting, talking, laughing, crying, flirting, etc.

Anything but listening.

So, No Indoctrination In Schools, Eh?

"Here was a man who spoke of “hope” and “change,” whose strong words lifted up the downhearted people and made them believe that the world was not beyond repair." ~ Jonah Winter

For the first time, and hopefully the last, I am simply going to link to an article instead of expressing my personal opinion on the subject:

Here are two of the books your child will be expected to read.

I don't know if these books are required reading in all government schools, or if they are merely suggested reading.

I know what I think. What's your opinion?

What's Sauce For The Goose

"History is a voice forever sounding across the centuries the laws of right and wrong. Opinions alter, manners change, creeds rise and fall, but the moral law is written on the tablets of eternity." ~ James A. Forude

I found this article by David Corn on my AOL home page this morning entitled, "Does Bob McDonnell want to outlaw non-marital sex?"

Well, the short answer is no.

But the thing that is really stupid about this whole issue is that the Democratic candidate for Governor in the Commonwealth of Virginia is actually trying to use this misleading topic to stir up controversy against his erstwhile opponent.

Read the story, and you'll find Creigh Deed's entire campaign strategy. He is, believe it or not, attempting to base his entire campaign on a 20 year old College thesis.

It seems odd to me that he thinks he would get any mileage with this strategy at all, given that referencing 20 year old books and papers didn't work for Obama's opponents in the last Presidential campaign.

I had been hearing snippets of information about this so-called controversy on the radio and television news over the last few days, but I didn't really know what was contained in the thesis that Deeds found so objectionable.

Now, I know.

According to the article, he once suggested (20 years ago) that non-marital sex should be outlawed.

Oh, horrors! What an incredibly radical and un-American concept! That non-marital sex could in any way be a bad thing!

I couldn't resist adding my comment:

"Mr. Corn, If that's the worst you Libs have found to sully your opponents reputation, you're in for a long campaign.

You and your cohorts had better think this one out a little more thoroughly. A whole lot of problems could be avoided by simply abstaining from sex until marriage. While making extra marital sex against the law may be taking it a little too far(although the Creator of the Universe might disagree), it isn't anywhere near as radical as hanging around with domestic terrorists, communists, and America-hating racist preachers.

In fact, one could say that extra-marital sex isn't a radical concept at all. It was, after all, the type of morality advocated by our founding fathers, and continued to be in line with the moral standards of Americans right up into the middle of the 20th century.

I would say the opposite of Mr. Mc'Donnell's thesis is the radical concept."

Then, if you're so inclined, try reading the comments left by the opponents of morality in support of Corn's article.

One said "Idiots should not be allowed to run for public office" To which I again couldn't resist replying:

If idiots couldn't run for public office, the Democrats would have to look outside their party to come up with a candidate.

That is, if David Corn and Creigh Deeds are examples of the best they have to offer.

Hey! Lay Off Harry! He's Telling The Truth!

"Since a politician never believes what he says, he is quite surprised to be taken at his word." ~ Charles De Gaulle

Conservative radio talk show hosts are outraged over what Nevada Senator Harry Reid said to a Las Vegas Newspaper employee. For my two readers who may have been wandering in some wilderness the last few days, with no access to Conservative media (for we know the alphabet networks would never carry this news), let me elaborate:

According to the American Security Matters web site, at a meet-and-greet photo op with the Las Vegas Chamber of Congress, Senate majority leader Reid told Bob Brown, the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s advertising director,

"I hope you go out of business".

Harry Reid: Truth Teller

I think the outrage is not so much that he "hopes" the paper goes out of business so much as the fact that, if anyone does, Harry Reid has the political clout to turn his hope into reality. All it would take is some discreet political maneuvering, threats, and bribery.

All the things at which Democrat politicians are most adept.

As usual, I have a slightly different perspective on this incident:

We've all been lamenting the lack of transparency and the prevalence of dishonesty in the current majority party in Washington.

Now, we finally have a Democrat Senator who tells the truth and we blast him for that?

For shame, for shame.

I think Harry Reid deserves praise for finally having the intestinal fortitude and intellectual honesty to voice what is the prevailing attitude among the Democratic party's representatives.

That attitude is: Among the American people there can be: No dissension. No disagreement. No free speech rights. No Freedom of the Press.

I say we should applaud Harry Reid for his honesty.

I say it's time we encourage more transparency and truthfulness from the rest of the Democratic party's leaders. I believe they should all lay their cards on the table and tell it like it is.

Chris Dodd should go ahead and tell us what we already know to be true: That he and Bawney Fwank are the ones really responsible for the housing market crash and the resulting economic recession.

Nancy Pelosi should own up to the fact that she believes she is far superior to the teeming unwashed masses over whom she reigns.

Barack Hussein Obama should admit he is an Islamic terrorist loving Marxist, power crazed dictator-in-the-making, narcissist, who hates America and is in the process of destroying America from the inside.

What difference would it make?

We Conservatives already know the truth, but the media and the uninformed, blind sheeple will continue to defend and follow these miscreants right into their own grave without so much as a whimper of protest.

So, go ahead and tell America the truth, Harry.

No one's listening anyway.
