The Psychopathology of Bush Hatred

The Psychopathology of Bush Hatred
By James Lewis

The Bush hatred we are seeing in the media today belongs in the long catalogue of human psychopathology -- not rational behavior. The latest version is the shoe-throwing incident in Iraq. Iraq happens to be a hot war zone, in which tens of thousands of innocent people have been killed by hidden bombs. Bush's protective detail had no way of knowing whether an assassinaton attempt was under way, in just the way Saddam tried to assassinate George H.W. Bush, Sr. At the end of his two terms of office, the President flew to Iraq, into harm's way, knowing the dangers, to hold an open press conference.

But our media harbor such bitter hatred for him that they turned a potential bomb-throwing incident --- by one of their own --- into a joke, just another reason to sneer at the President. If anybody threw a cream pie at Obama, screaming headlines would be launched for days afterward. Nothing but sneers followed the potential attack on George W. Bush, which he fended off with his usual grace and humor. I have never known a US president to be treated as disgracefully as this one. The political case against him is based almost entirely on media falsehoods, slanders, and greed for power. Not much rationality there.


I agree with some of this, but I think this has many different roots, and it began long before Obama appeared on the scene. The spoiled selfishness and immaturity of the Left being a huge cause. They've always wanted to hate 'The Man' and GWB was/is their embodiment of it, this time.

Hate, hate, hate is the emotion that fuels the Left--common sense or kindness or tolerance, balance, fairness or anything humane--simply cannot do it for them; they can't make those emotions work for them. (Read about the role of a Community Organizer and you'll have a perfect blueprint of the entire Left and their crass, 'look at me!', 'only we count!' methods.)

Thus, they always need someone or something to hate--and they always will. Just as a 3 year-old always has something about which to tantrum, the Left will always have a hatred waiting--and a shoe to be thrown--as the spittle of their viciousness flies out their mouths.

It's becoming such a trademark of theirs, the target hardly matters.

"I'm Not Even 'Present'..."

Obama takes no position on Hamas rockets.
"I'm not even 'present'...
(And just where IS Hamastan?")

Cynthia McKinney: Humanitarian Superhero Sails for Gaza!

Cynthia McKinney: Humanitarian Superhero Sails for Gaza!
By Steve Schippert

Cue the Underdog theme music for Cynthia McKinney. "Speed of lightning, roar of thunder. Fighting all who rob or plunder. Underdog — Ahh-Ahh-AHHH! — Underdog!"

Today, our hero finds herself pitted against the Evil Israeli War Machine® as she and her noble canine crew launch a mission from Cyprus in a one-yacht armada to "defy an Israeli naval blockade" of Hamastan.


Well, if they really intended to defy and penetrate the Israeli naval blockade while hot operations are going on (a decidedly different endeavor from what they've been doing since August), they would not be advertising the itinerary through PR releases. It's more about getting media attention than actual relief, which is why Cynthia McKinney is aboard in the first place.

The Israeli conflict at hand has two essential fronts: One of target selection and liquidation of Hamas assets and infrastructure within Gaza, and one of information warfare. The bad guys (Hamas terrorists) have more allies in the media than Israel, and as such, Hamas's often dim-witted allies have proven much more effective on the information-warfare front than the Evil Israeli War Machine®. (You could add a third, political front, but I mesh that in with the InfoWar, because they parallel so precisely.)

Count Cynthia McKinney among the dim bulbs who protest in support of Hamas (ostensibly by claiming to support the Palestinian people, of course), such as these geniuses who protested over the weekend in Toronto, Canada. Look at the pictures taken outside the Israeli embassy there by Winston, a Canadian citizen who is Iranian by birth. Note the protesters' inability to resist bringing Che Guevara flags and, not ironically, the Iranian regime's flag.

Those are Cynthia McKinney's fellow travelers. Seeking truth and justice, dontcha know, and bringing relief to Hamas, which over the weekend aired a public-service announcement on Gaza television that cried out about the Evil Israeli Target-Rich Civilian Environment® "Send them to Hell! Tear them to pieces!" and "Send them to Hell, Qassam missile!" Truly, a humanitarian cause we can all believe in.

Thank you, Cynthia. You're my hero. I dont know if you're Underdog or Mighty Mouse, but I sing it for you just the same, "Mr. Trouble never hangs around, when he hear this mighty sound: 'Here I come to save the day!' That means that Mighty Mouse is on the way."

Sail your one-yacht armada into the evil Israeli naval beast! I hear Afghanistan is next for you. You go, girl!

Green Bible Creates Controversy

Green Bible Creates Controversy
By Ginger D. Richardson

In this day and age, you can buy a
Bible aimed at almost any demographic imaginable. There are Bibles for everyone from toddlers to teenage girls to recovering addicts. There are even Bibles on disc, narrated by James Earl Jones and Johnny Cash.

But it's the recently published Green Bible that is causing a stir in the religious community.

Supporters of the book, which highlights verses related to what believers call "God's creation" and his desire for humans to protect it, say they hope it will encourage more Christians, particularly evangelicals, to embrace environmentalism.

"In every book of the Bible, there are references to the world and how we should take care of it," said Rusty Pritchard, editor of Creation Care Magazine, an eco-friendly publication for evangelicals. "When you look at it through that lens, it really jumps out at you . . . that God is calling us to care for the world around us."

But others fear the new Bible, which has been endorsed by secular groups such as the
Sierra Club and the Humane Society, will mislead Christians.

"I am concerned that many who call themselves Christians, or intend to speak for Christianity, don't interpret the Bible literally," said James Taylor, a founding elder and Sunday-school teacher at Living Water Christian Fellowship in Palmetto, Fla. "These groups don't have a religious focus; they have a desire to spread their environmental message."

MUST READ: Astounding Information On LBJ


Astounding Information On LBJ
By Lenny Ben-David--Jerusalem Post

Someone tell Bammie this is the definition of truly noble deeds--better than any 'change'--and a certain people's only hope. 'We are the change we have been waiting for' is a profoundly selfish meme.

A few weeks ago, the Associated Press reported that newly released tapes from US president Lyndon Johnson's White House office showed LBJ's "personal and often emotional connection to Israel." The news agency pointed out that during the Johnson presidency (1963-1969), "the United States became Israel's chief diplomatic ally and primary arms supplier."

But the news report does little to reveal the full historical extent of Johnson's actions on behalf of the Jewish people and the State of Israel. Most students of the Arab-Israeli conflict can identify Johnson as the president during the 1967 war. But few know about LBJ's actions to rescue hundreds of endangered Jews during the Holocaust - actions that could have thrown him out of Congress and into jail. Indeed, the title of "Righteous Gentile" is certainly appropriate in the case of the Texan, whose centennial year is being commemorated this year.

Appropriately enough, the annual Jerusalem Conference announced this week that it will honor Johnson in February 2009. Historians have revealed that Johnson, while serving as a young congressman in 1938 and 1939, arranged for visas to be supplied to Jews in Warsaw, and oversaw the apparently illegal immigration of hundreds of Jews through the port of Galveston, Texas.

A key resource for uncovering LBJ's pro-Jewish activity is the unpublished 1989 doctoral thesis by University of Texas student Louis Gomolak, "Prologue: LBJ's Foreign Affairs Background, 1908-1948." Johnson's activities were confirmed by other historians in interviews with his wife, family members and political associates.

Research into Johnson's personal history indicates that he inherited his concern for the Jewish people from his family. His aunt Jessie Johnson Hatcher, a major influence on LBJ, was a member of the Zionist Organization of America. According to Gomolak, Aunt Jessie had nurtured LBJ's commitment to befriending Jews for 50 years.

As a young boy, Lyndon watched his politically active grandfather "Big Sam" and father "Little Sam" seek clemency for Leo Frank, the Jewish victim of a blood libel in Atlanta. Frank was lynched by a mob in 1915, and the Ku Klux Klan in Texas threatened to kill the Johnsons. The Johnsons later told friends that Lyndon's family hid in their cellar while his father and uncles stood guard with shotguns on their porch in case of KKK attacks. Johnson's speechwriter later stated, "Johnson often cited Leo Frank's lyn ching as the source of his opposition to both anti-Semitism and isolationism."

Already in 1934 - four years before Chamberlain's Munich sellout to Hitler - Johnson was keenly alert to the dangers of Nazism and presented a book of essays, Nazism: An Assault on Civilization, to the 21-year-old woman he was courting, Claudia Taylor - later known as "Lady Bird" Johnson. It was an incredible engagement present.

FIVE DAYS after taking office in 1937, LBJ broke with the "Dixiecrats" and supported an immigration bill that would naturalize illegal aliens, mostly Jews from Lithuania and Poland. In 1938, Johnson was told of a young Austrian Jewish musician who was about to be deported from the United States. With an element of subterfuge, LBJ sent him to the US Consulate in Havana to obtain a residency permit. Erich Leinsdorf, the world famous musician and conductor, credited LBJ for saving his live.

That same year, LBJ warned a Jewish friend, Jim Novy, that European Jews faced annihilation. "Get as many Jewish people as possible out [of Germany and Poland]," were Johnson's instructions. Somehow, Johnson provided him with a pile of signed immigration papers that were used to get 42 Jews out of Warsaw.

But that wasn't enough. According to historian James M. Smallwood, Congressman Johnson used legal and sometimes illegal methods to smuggle "hundreds of Jews into Texas, using Galveston as the entry port. Enough money could buy false passports and fake visas in Cuba, Mexico and other Latin American countries.... Johnson smuggled boatloads and planeloads of Jews into Texas. He hid them in the Texas National Youth Administration... Johnson saved at least four or five hundred Jews, possibly more."

During World War II Johnson joined Novy at a small Austin gathering to sell $65,000 in war bonds. According to Gomolak, Novy and Johnson then raised a very "substantial sum for arms for Jewish underground fighters in Palestine." One source cited by the historian reports that "Novy and Johnson had been secretly shipping heavy crates labeled 'Texas Grapefruit' - but containing arms - to Jewish underground 'freedom fighters' in Palestine."

ON JUNE 4, 1945, Johnson visited Dachau. According to Smallwood, Lady Bird later recalled that when her husband returned home, "he was still shaken, stunned, terrorized and bursting with an overpowering revulsion and incredulous horror at what he had seen."

A decade later while serving in the Senate, Johnson blocked the Eisenhower administration's attempts to apply sanctions against Israel following the 1956 Sinai Campaign. "The indefatigable Johnson had never ceased pressure on the administration," wrote I.L. "Si" Kenen, the head of AIPAC at the time.

As Senate majority leader, Johnson consistently blocked the anti-Israel initiatives of his fellow Democrat, William Fulbright, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Among Johnson's closest advisers during this period were several strong pro-Israel advocates, including Benjamin Cohen (who 30 years earlier was the liaison between Supreme Court justice Louis Brandeis and Chaim Weizmann) and Abe Fortas, the legendary Washington "insider."

Johnson's concern for the Jewish people continued through his presidency. Soon after taking office in the aftermath of John F. Kennedy's assassination in 1963, Johnson told an Israeli diplomat, "You have lost a very great friend, but you have found a better one."

Just one month after succeeding Kennedy, LBJ attended the December 1963 dedication of the Agudas Achim Synagogue in Austin. Novy opened the ceremony by saying to Johnson, "We can't thank him enough for all those Jews he got out of Germany during the days of Hitler."

Lady Bird would later describe the day, according to Gomolak: "Person after person plucked at my sleeve and said, 'I wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for him. He helped me get out.'" Lady Bird elaborated, "Jews had been woven into the warp and woof of all [Lyndon's] years."

THE PRELUDE to the 1967 war was a terrifying period for Israel, with the US State Department led by the historically unfriendly Dean Rusk urging an evenhanded policy despite Arab threats and acts of aggression. Johnson held no such illusions. After the war he placed the blame firmly on Egypt: "If a single act of folly was more responsible for this explosion than any other, it was the arbitrary and dangerous announced decision [by Egypt] that the Strait of Tiran would be closed [to Israeli ships and Israeli-bound cargo]."

Kennedy was the first president to approve the sale of defensive US weapons to Israel, specifically Hawk anti-aircraft missiles. But Johnson approved tanks and fighter jets, all vital after the 1967 war when France imposed a freeze on sales to Israel. Yehuda Avner recently described on these pages prime minister Levi Eshkol's successful appeal for these weapons on a visit to the LBJ ranch.

Israel won the 1967 war, and Johnson worked to make sure it also won the peace. "I sure as hell want to be careful and not run out on little Israel," Johnson said in a March 1968 conversation with his ambassador to the United Nations, Arthur Goldberg, according to White House tapes recently released.

Soon after the 1967 war, Soviet premier Aleksei Kosygin asked Johnson at the Glassboro Summit why the US supported Israel when there were 80 million Arabs and only three million Israelis. "Because it is right," responded the straight-shooting Texan.

The crafting of UN Resolution 242 in November 1967 was done under Johnson's scrutiny. The call for "secure and recognized boundaries" was critical. The American and British drafters of the resolution opposed Israel returning all the territories captured in the war. In September 1968, Johnson explained, "We are not the ones to say where other nations should draw lines between them that will assure each the greatest security. It is clear, however, that a return to the situation of 4 June 1967 will not bring peace. There must be secure and there must be recognized borders. Some such lines must be agreed to by the neighbors involved."

Goldberg later noted, "Resolution 242 in no way refers to Jerusalem, and this omission was deliberate." This historic diplomacy was conducted under Johnson's stewardship, as Goldberg related in oral history to the Johnson Library. "I must say for Johnson," Goldberg stated. "He gave me great personal support."

Robert David Johnson, a professor of history at Brooklyn College, recently wrote in The New York Sun, "Johnson's policies stemmed more from personal concerns - his friendship with leading Zionists, his belief that America had a moral obligation to bolster Israeli security and his conception of Israel as a frontier land much like his home state of Texas. His personal concerns led him to intervene when he felt that the State or Defense departments had insufficiently appreciated Israel's diplomatic or military needs."

President Johnson firmly pointed American policy in a pro-Israel direction. In a historical context, the American emergency airlift to Israel in 1973, the constant diplomatic support, the economic and military assistance and the strategic bonds between the two countries can all be credited to the seeds planted by LBJ.

Now, Feds Probe Gov. Richardson of Obama Cabinet for 'Pay-to-Play'

Now, Feds Probe Gov. Richardson of Obama Cabinet for 'Pay-to-Play'
By Andrew Malcolm--LAT

This must be that 'most ethical administration' ol' Nanny P. was talking about. What an execrable group of people...

It seems that Illinois' legally challenged Gov. Rod Blagojevich is not the only close Barack Obama associate and Democratic governor being investigated by the feds for possibly selling government business in return for campaign contributions.

New Mexico's Gov. Bill Richardson, who is the newly named Secretary of Commerce in Obama's about-to-be Cabinet, is also being investigated by a federal grand jury in his home state for possibly steering state bond business from the New Mexico Financial Authority toward David Rubin, a significant campaign contributor, according to an NBC News report, among others.

NBC's Lisa Myers reports that two former state officials say they've recently been questioned by a federal grand jury specifically about allegations that Richardson or aides pushed state business worth nearly $1.5 million in fees toward CDR Financial Products in 2004. The company is headquartered in Beverly Hills.

This was about the same time as CDR's founder, Rubin, donated $100,000 to two of Richardson's political action committees; mainly it appears to cover expenses of the governor and his staff at the Democratic Party's National Convention in Boston that summer. Rubin also donated another $29,000 to Richardson's unsuccessful presidential campaign this year and last.

The probe is part of a broad national federal exploration of "pay-to-play," in which government officials reap financial or other benefits in return for state business.

Richardson has ignored reporters' questions on the federal investigation...


Warning: What Liberal Change Looks Like After One Year

Warning: What Liberal Change Looks Like After One Year
By Ben-Peter Terpstra

"Candidate Jimmy Carter said he stood for change." - Associated Press, 11/3/1976

Goodness. What a difference a year makes. In fact, a year after Carter's inauguration night, even some Democrats were rolling their eyes. Come, now: Let's revisit history, shall we?
Before President Jimmy Carter's January1977 inauguration:

November 3, 1976: "What Will Carter Presidency Look Like?" An AP news analysis, by Louise Cook reminds literates that "Jimmy Carter said he stood for change. He left a long list of promises" like Whatshisname.

Consider. "A streamlined bureaucracy"? Yes. "A new tax system"? Yes. "A pared-down defense budget"? Yes. "Comprehensive national health and welfare reform"? Yes. Change, change, change. But -- okay, whatever -- here's the most interesting point: "In the campaign, Carter did not spell out specifics on most of his major programs, talking instead about general goals."

Operation Provide Comfort

Operation Provide Comfort
By James Taranto

Here's something I bet you didn't know...

"For much of the past seven years, President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney have waged a clandestine operation inside the White House. It has involved thousands of military personnel, private presidential letters and meetings that were kept off their public calendars or sometimes left the news media in the dark," reports the Washington Times:

Their mission: to comfort the families of soldiers who died fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and to lift the spirits of those wounded in the service of their country. . .

But the size and scope of Mr. Bush's and Mr. Cheney's private endeavors to meet with wounded soliders and families of the fallen far exceed anything that has been witnessed publicly, according to interviews with more than a dozen officials familiar with the effort. . .

Mr. Bush, for instance, has sent personal letters to the families of every one of the more than 4,000 troops who have died in the two wars, an enormous personal effort that consumed hours of his time and escaped public notice. The task, along with meeting family members of troops killed in action, has been so wrenching - balancing the anger, grief and pride of families coping with the loss symbolized by a flag-draped coffin - that the president often leaned on his wife, Laura, for emotional support. . .

Mr. Cheney similarly has hosted numerous events, even sneaked away from the White House or his Naval Observatory home to meet troops at hospitals or elsewhere without a hint to the news media.

For instance, Mr. Cheney flew to North Carolina late last month and met with 500 special-operations soldiers for three hours on a Saturday night at a golf resort. The event was so secretive that the local newspaper didn't even learn about it until three days after it happened.
Mr. Cheney and his wife, Lynne, also have hosted more than a half-dozen barbecues at their Naval Observatory home for wounded troops recovering at Bethesda Naval Hospital and Walter Reed and their spouses and children.

Here's hoping that the Obama administration lives up to the Bush example.

A Monument for Obama


A Monument for Obama
By Brett Stephens-WSJ

The contemplated monument shall be like him in whose honor it is to be constructed, unparalleled in the world. . . .

[It] should blend stupendousness with elegance, and be of such magnitude and beauty as to be an object of pride to the American people, and of all who see it. -- Design objectives for the Washington Monument, 1832.

Why wait? As its first order of business in the coming year, the 111th Congress must establish the Barack H. Obama Presidential Monument Commission, to approve the design and fund the construction (with a target completion date of Jan. 21, 2017) of a suitable tribute to the best 44th president this country will ever have.


This man did nothing in high school, he did nothing in college No. 1, he did nothing in college No. 2, he did nothing in college No. 3, he did nothing in the Law Review, he did nothing as senator of Illinois, he did nothing on any of the numerous boards he was on (many with William Ayers) except line his pockets, and he has done nothing for America whatsoever--but he feels he deserves a monument.

He doesn't have to worry about his middle name being spelled like Saddam's last name--it can easily be shortened to simply E-G-O.

Woah! US Troops in Iraq Give Bush a Tremendous Sendoff!


God love one of the greatest, bravest, presidents we have ever known. Despite the shoe-throwing babies of the Left, they are only free because of the man standing before them. Perhaps they'd want their sisters to go into Saddam's rape rooms; we, in our goodness, have removed that evilness from their choices. It will take another Leftist to put it back (and we will deal with that, too.)

Bammie's 'Mandate' BWAHAHAHAHA!

Chief: Gov. Palin's Home Church Damaged by Arson

Chief: Gov. Palin's Home Church Damaged by Arson
By Rachel D'Oro

Gov. Sarah Palin's home church was badly damaged by arson, leading the governor to apologize if the fire was connected to "undeserved negative attention" from her failed campaign as the Republican vice presidential nominee.

Damage to the Wasilla Bible Church was estimated at $1 million, authorities said Saturday. No one was injured in the fire, which was set Friday night while a handful of people, including two children, were inside, according to Central Mat-Su Fire Chief James Steele.

He said the blaze was being investigated as an arson...


He would not comment on the means used to set the fire.The 1,000-member evangelical church was the subject of intense scrutiny after Palin was named John McCain's running mate. Early in Palin's campaign, the church was criticized for promoting in a Sunday bulletin a Focus on the Family "Love Won Out Conference" in Anchorage. The conference promised to "help men and women dissatisfied with living homosexually understand that same-sex attractions can be overcome."

The fire was set at the entrance of the church and moved inward as a small group of women were working on crafts, Steele said. The group was alerted to the blaze by a fire alarm. Outside temperatures were minus 20 as firefighters battled the blaze.


Ah, the always-gracious Left. I guess the acts of Blagy weren't enough with which to commemorate this week, no, they had to do more of their filthy vadalism amid childish tantrum. Oh, Bammikins, keep telling me how honorable your people are, and how much they love America, and how tolerant they are...

The Liberator 's Last Visit to the People He Set Free

Bush Makes Farewell Visit to Iraq

US President George Bush has arrived in Iraq on a surprise, farewell visit to the country that has defined his presidency since the invasion in 2003. The White House said Mr Bush would meet Iraqi leaders, celebrate the new security agreement between the nations and thank US troops serving there.

The visit comes a day after US Defence Secretary Robert Gates told US troops the Iraq mission was in its "endgame". Mr Gates has been picked to stay on as defence secretary by Barack Obama.

Mr Bush's first stop was the Iraqi presidential palace where he held talks with President Jalal Talabani. He was then to meet Prime Minister Nouri Maliki.

Parties of Corruption

Parties of Corruption
By Randall Hoven

The NTU's list is of "Members of Congress Who Were Convicted of or Pled Guilty to Major Offenses, 1992-1999." NTU staffers had to compile the list from Washington Post archives and Congressional Quarterly Yearly Almanacs. (It takes real work to compile an apples-to-apples, fair list.) Here is that list:

Nick Mavroules (D-MA). Tax evasion, accepting illegal gratuity, 1992.
Albert Bustamante (D-TX). Racketeering, 1993.
Carroll Hubbard (D-KY). Fraud and corruption, 1994.
Carl Perkins (D-KY). Fraud, 1994.
Charlie Rose (D-NC). Agreed to pay fine for financial disclosure irregularities, 1994.
Larry Smith (D-FL). Tax evasion, 1994.
Dave Durenberger (R-MN). Financial disclosure misdemeanor, 1995.
Walter Fauntroy (D-DC Delegate). Financial disclosure misdemeanor, 1995.
Gerald Kleczka (D-WI). Convicted of DWI, 1987. Arrested for DWI, 1990 and 1995.
Mel Reynolds (D-IL). Sexual misconduct, 1995.
Walter Tucker (D-CA). Extortion, 1995.
Charles Wilson (D-TX). Agreed to pay fine to Federal Election Commission, 1995.
Joe Kolter (D-PA). Fraud and conspiracy, 1996.
Dan Rostenkowski (D-IL). Mail fraud, 1996.
Wes Cooley (R-OR). Lying about war record in official voter pamphlet, 1997.
Jay Kim (R-CA). Campaign finance violations, 1998.
Mary Rose Oakar (D-OH). Financial disclosure irregularities, 1998.
Austin J. Murphy (D-PA). Voter fraud, 1999.

By my count: 15 Democrats, 3 Republicans. Since then, we can add James Traficant (D-OH) and Randall Cunningham (R-CA). Call the score 16 to 4, Democrats leading.
That would make Democrats 4 times (or 300%) more corrupt than Republicans.

An Obama Rejection...

An Obama Rejection...
By Michael Sneed

President-elect Barack Obama just got nixed!

Sneed hears the White House has rejected a recent request by Obama to occupy Blair House, the president-elect's Washington residence, at an earlier date.

* To wit: Sneed hears Obama wanted to move his family and his transition team to Blair House, which is across from the White House, nearly two weeks before the president-elect historically moves there on Jan. 15 -- five days before the inaugural.

*The backshot: A source tells Sneed: "There were reportedly two reasons for the request: Obama's children start school in early January -- and the move could be interpreted as a New Year's symbolic gesture showing the president-elect in a presidential capacity across from the White House on Jan. 2, the day after New Year's Day."

*The buckshot: Blair House, the president's guest house for visiting dignitaries, nixed the request. "It was a polite rejection," the source added. "But I'm told Blair House was appalled."

* Responses: An Obama spokesman tells Sneed they were told Blair House had guests until Jan. 15.

...Sally McDonough, a spokesman for first lady Laura Bush, tells Sneed: "Respectfully, we are keeping transition conversations quiet. But Jan. 15 is historically the time when incoming presidents occupy Blair House, which is the president's guest house.",CST-NWS-SNEED.article

Boy, Bammie is trying to sharp-elbow his way into the top dog spot just as quickly--and as gracelessly--as he can. He's after any power, any appearance of power--or anything that'll draw the eye his way. Wow--I've never seen an ego that big in my life!

Jon Voight on Israel; A Right-Thinking Man

The Democrat Culture of Corruption

The Democrat Culture of Corruption
By Michelle Malkin

Howard Dean and Nancy Pelosi can stop clucking now. For the last three years, Democratic leaders cheered GOP ethics woes. Dean accused Republicans of making “their culture of corruption the norm.” Pelosi touted cleanliness as a liberal virtue. But with the eye-popping pay-for-play and bribery case against Democratic Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich topping a year of nationwide Democratic scandals, the corruption chickens are coming home to roost.

U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald called the breadth and depth of charges against Blagojevich and his Democratic Chief of Staff John Harris “staggering.” That’s an understatement. Anything that breathed was a potential shakedown target. It’s the Chicago way. Democrat Blago’s so dirty he’d hit up a children’s hospital for money. Oh, wait. He’s accused of doing that, too.

Democrat Blago allegedly conspired to use his power to appoint President-elect Barack Obama’s vacant Senate seat as a bargaining chip for financial payment. He explored trading on that authority for an appointment as Health and Human Services secretary or as an ambassador or for installment in a cushy union position. (He discussed his trading scheme with an unnamed “SEIU (Service Employees International Union) official” and unnamed “various consultants” in Washington.)


Bammiekins has not yet set foot in the White House and the Demmie-Leftist corruption wells forth. He's so dirty--with his Chicago political machine just a-churning--that the scandals have welled up, tainting his inauguration in advance.
You watch... if The Zero doesn't pardon him, this'll just be one more occasion for a Demmie slide-by. Merry Fitzmas, indeed; the last laugh is on you jackanapes. Come on, Lefties, just keep telling us how 'clean' y'all are! ROFLMAO!

The Exquisite Difficulty of Preemption


The Exquisite Difficulty of Preemption
By Douglas Stone

Ever hear of an obscure German Chancellor by the name of Hitler? Probably not. He ruled for three years in the 1930s until he took an aggressive step too far, marching troops into the Rhineland against treaty commitments. The Wehrmacht was promptly ejected by the French Army, and an appalled and fearful German General Staff liquidated Hitler and called for new elections.

Of course, it didn't work that way.

Herr Hitler was not removed, because the pacific French and British democracies -- knowing only that any action would result in serious bloodshed, but not the then-future of the German Chancellor -- shrank from the challenge and hoped for the best. Disaster struck, and instead of disappearing, the name Hitler is a byword for horror.

It's the perennial problem with democracies -- which naturally abhor violence and dislocation -- and just what we face in the Middle East today with Iran: If we make war to remove any but the most imminent and specific threat, opponents of the policy can argue without possible refutation that there never really was a threat and that bloodshed was therefore unnecessary.
Anticipating this response, democratic politicians especially are loath to take preemptive action. That's especially true given today's oppositional, 60s-inspired culture; 24 hour news cycle; and, Iraq's disappearing WMD.


They need to talk about what happens if we fail. Let's say the Left wins and we do no more preemptives. Which Houston, L.A., Chicago, Norfolk, San Francisco, Palm Beach, Valdez, Tel Aviv, Haifa etc. are you willing to sacrifice?

All you Leftist cowards write in and tell me what Paris, London, Rio de Janerio, English Channel etc. are you willing to see go because of YOUR cowadice? Because you're too afraid to make a mistake and be well with it? Because you have no confidence? Because you have no brass?

Obama and the Natural Born Citizen Clause

Obama and the Natural Born Citizen Clause
By Randall Hoven

On Monday, the Supreme Court decided not to hear the Donofrio case concerning whether Barack Obama is a natural born citizen and therefore qualified to be President. Also, David Horowitz diagnosed those who claim Obama is not natural born as being afflicted with "Obama Derangement Syndrome." Horowitz told people to "shut up about the birth certificate."

A bad day for those of us in tin-foil hats. Even Michelle Malkin is against us .

Mr. Horowitz whizzes right by the issue of whether or not Obama is Constitutionally qualified. He simply says it doesn't matter. He asked,

"What difference does it make to the future of this country whether Obama was born on U.S. soil?"

When the US Constitution is clear on a matter, we are not supposed to re-think "what difference does it make to the future of this country." If we do this re-thinking at every step, we would not need a Constitution; we would merely cogitate on how proposal X will affect our future. In short, no need for a Constitution.

In this case, the Constitution is very clear. Article II, Section 1 states, "no person except a natural born citizen ... shall be eligible to the Office of President." No fuzz there. No need to look into penumbras and emanations. If a guy ain't natural born, he can't be President.

Obama's End Run around Congress

Obama's End Run around Congress
By Ned Barnett

Candidate Barack Obama promised "change we can believe in," but he never hinted that this change would all but circumvent Congress to impose on America the most dramatic liberal social transformation since the New Deal. While promising to lead, he did not suggest that he would create a kind of "imperial presidency" that would horrify the Founding Fathers.

Based on their own direct experience with a sovereign, they were rightly concerned with any one man having too much power. This is the kind of power that Obama is now reaching for, following the same kind of "stealth strategy" that helped get him elected.

During the Presidential campaign, then-Senator Obama executed a series of extraordinarily successful "stealth strategies," enabling him to secure the support of key core groups without alienating the larger public. (snip)

However, none of these stealth strategies holds a candle to President-Elect Obama's most brilliant stealth strategy for implementing "change." This involves not just a change in laws, but a change in the way laws are made and passed. This "change" is as simple as it is revolutionary: capitalizing on the economic crisis, Obama has challenged Congress to enact his near-trillion-dollar package of social changes -- disguised as a comprehensive stimulus/jobs bill -- and to have that legislation waiting to be signed immediately after his January 20th inaugural.

In the name of stopping the economy's free-fall, through a traditionally-liberal massive infusion of jobs, President-Elect Obama is also adroitly side-stepping Congress's time-honored system of passing legislation. By the simple ruse of imposing a tight schedule for Congress, Obama will -- in effect -- put virtually all of the government's power into his own hands. This is an end-run around Congress's deliberative process -- one that makes FDR's vaunted and unprecedented "100 days" strategy look like a leisurely process. This is also an end-run around the American people, ensuring that citizen-opponents have no voice, and no role, in shaping this legislation.


The Democrats will come to rue the day they put this man in charge of the world... he is becoming exactly what we said he was--and what HE said he was. The silly Democrats thought he would only take away the GOP's rights! They looked to him to be their ultimate revenge machine; they forgot that laws and legislations do not discriminate--not like they want to.

The Day Of Heroes

God Bless the heroes in America that have fought and died for this country--and always will. For all those in the world that speak badly of our country, get out a piece of paper a write down what your life would be like if America did not exist. For those in Europe, Germany, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Britain esp., Asia, and the Pacific Islands--get out two pieces.

We have no need to get out paper if YOU did not exist and, if we did, it would be to put countless men who died on your behalf, back in our lives.

Overlook the silly fad of Obama--he will pass and America will stand firm--and be proud of the larger messages for which America has ALWAYS upheld and, God willing, always will. Say a prayer for OUR men, chances are, one of them died for you and yours.
