Hugo To Fidel: “Careful Or We’ll Be On Obama’s Right!”

3 06 2009

(POST UPDATED BELOW) Many a truth is said in jest via Al-Reuters:

Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez said on Tuesday that he and Cuban ally Fidel Castro risk being more conservative than U.S. President Barack Obama as Washington prepares to take control of General Motors Corp.

“Comrade Obama! Fidel, careful or we are going to end up to his right,” Chavez joked on a live television broadcast.

Holy $#*^ he called him “comrade.”  If Rush Limbaugh did that, MSNBC would start talking about oxycontons within the hour.

UPDATE: From the incredibly liberal Pravda, a scary view from the outside, that we should all take into account because we need to pay attention to the rest of the world:

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.

Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.

First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their “right” to choke down a McDonalds burger or a BurgerKing burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our “democracy”.  Pride blind the foolish.

Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different “branches and denominations” were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the “winning” side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the “winning” side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America.

The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America’s short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.

These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, loses and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more then ordinary street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes.  Should we congratulate them?

I’m wondering if the American left will ever allow conservatives to call them “socialists” without smearing their character and marginalizing their reputations in some sort of reverso-witch-hunt maneuver, which ends up typecasting the accuser.

All these international lefties made me realize; ripping liberals for being Marxists is kind of like me talking about your mom.  I really can’t get away with it unless we go legit she’s my mom.

The Rigors Of A Day In The Life Of A Liberal

27 05 2009

This yesterday morning, America woke up to an inspiring press conference with Obama, his teleprompter, and the likely next Supreme Court Justice, Sonia Sotomayor.

Most liberals were thrilled when they saw her name.  Not because they necessarily knew her, but because they were totally pumped when they deduced that she must be a female and an ethnic one. They were even more psyched when they found out she wasn’t some Uncle Tom when the blogs reported that she had said:

“I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experience would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.”

That type of prejudice and stereotyping is right in the deranged liberal wheelhouse, but unfortunately it’s unconstitutional and it reeks of judicial activism.  Of course this fits directly into Obama’s own radical viewpoint and was easily predicted if only you paid attention to what he’s said:

We need somebody who’s got the heart, the empathy, to recognize what it’s like to be a young teenage mom…The empathy to understand what it’s like to be poor, or African-American, or gay, or disabled, or old.  And that’s the criteria by which I’m going to be selecting my judges.”

You’d think a brilliant Constitutional lawyer lecturer would know better, wouldn’t you?

Me too, but maintaining congruent arguments is always a challenge for liberals and by lunch time on this awesome day, they had to completely flip their script when Prop 8 was upheld in California and same-sex marriage remained banned, in part because of differences between genders.

Instantly, they had to switch from admitting (if not boasting) that the genders are not the same, to insisting that they indeed are, and that anyone who disagrees is a hater and a homophobe.

Such is the difficulty of day to day life when suffering from a mental disorder.

MORE: with a video of Sotomayor relishing her judicial activism. with some of her rulings and an interesting factoid that the GOP moved to block her in 1998.

Newsbusters has Chris Matthews making a fool of himself.

Newsbusters explores how the big, corporate media portrayed conservative and liberal judges and nominees. HERE and HERE.

Malkin’s coverage.

Thomas Sowell on judicial “empathy:

People who are speculating about whether the next nominee will be a woman, a Hispanic or whatever, are missing the point.  That we are discussing the next Supreme Court justice in terms of group “representation” is a sign of how far we have already strayed from the purpose of law and the weighty responsibility of appointing someone to sit for life on the highest court in the land.

Would you want to go into court to appear before a judge with “empathy” for groups A, B and C, if you were a member of groups X, Y or Z? Nothing could be further from the rule of law. That would be bad news, even in a traffic court, much less in a court that has the last word on your rights under the Constitution of the United States.

Appoint enough Supreme Court justices with “empathy” for particular groups and you would have, for all practical purposes, repealed the 14th Amendment, which guarantees “equal protection of the laws” for all America.

We would have entered a strange new world, where everybody is equal but some are more equal than others. The very idea of the rule of law would become meaningless when it is replaced by the empathies of judges

Barack Obama solves this contradiction, as he solves so many other problems, with rhetoric. If you believe in the rule of law, he will say the words “rule of law.” And if you are willing to buy it, he will keep on selling it.

Those people who just accept soothing words from politicians they like are gambling with the future of a nation. If you were German, would you be in favor of a law “to relieve the distress of the German people and nation”? That was the law that gave Hitler dictatorial power.

UPDATE: Was Justice Benjamin Cardozo, the first “hispanic” on the SCOTUS?

Obama: “The Fundamentals Of The Economy Are Sound, Not Strong.”

17 03 2009

Yesterday an old-style reporter asked Robert Gibbs about John McCain’s the White House’s new stance that, “the fundamentals of the economy are strong sound.”

Gibbs tried out his Obama-impression, but fell flat in the semantics game, when he insisted “strong” and “sound” are fundamentally different.

Someday, a wise-ass reporter might ask if Obama inherited a sound economy.

Recall, McCain was ahead of Obama at the time of the Lehman Brothers collapse and his untimely comments were used by smear merchants in the corporate media to show him as, “out of touch.”

How many houses does that guy have anyways?

This, along with his hasty support for the bailout (TARP), when Obama was merely, “there if we need him” proved to be the most pivotal moment of the campaign.

By the way, Obama is now fear-mongering on behalf of bailouts, and McCain’s pathetic ass is against them.

And shocker…BO’s numbers are stinking up the joint.


“Did somebody say joint?”

Flashback vids are here to bring you there.

Chris Matthews lampooned McCain for saying “the fundamentals of the economy are strong” 22 times.

The epitome of a politician, Barack Obama, ridiculed McCain for the statement and made this campaign ad during his adorable class warfare faze.

Flip to 57 seconds of MSNBC’s McCain bash to see Obama on 9/15/08 say, “we just woke up to financial disaster and this morning he (McCain) said, ‘the fundamentals of the economy are strong.’  Senator McCain, what economy are you talking about?”  Then, liar-in-chief says, “you all remember Phil Gramm, he’s the guy who said, ‘we’re just going through a mental recession’ and called the United States of America, a ‘nation of whiners.’ You can’t make this stuff up. It’s like a Saturday Night Live routine”

I always get a kick out of the crowd whining when Obama tells them they’ve been called whiners but hey, at least Gramm didn’t call us a “nation of cowards.”

Here’s Glenn Beck with a round-up.

Tigerhawk compliments Instapundit.

Glenn Reynolds makes a nifty, if somewhat lawyerly, point: If the economy is still fundamentally strong, what are the actual problems inherited by the Obama administration? That said, I much prefer the president talking it up than talking it down, and if it takes a little hypocrisy to make that happen I’m all for giving him a pass. The outrage, of course, is that so many in the media credulously parroted the Obama campaign’s talking points last fall. But even that is only the “usual” outrage.

Thanks Tigerhawk, back to Adam at OutOfTheBlu,

“Hawaiian born or not, this guy is a freaking fraud and the people who haven’t figured that out, are even worse.”

Liberals Change DC’s Mall Into Nuclear Winterland

22 01 2009

Seriously?  A liberal would say that I’m a Republican trying to expedite the rapture, and I know that conservatives may be a bit depressed, but doesn’t that kinda look like the apocalypse?

I watched millions 800,000 inauguration revelers celebrate and say a classy good-bye to Bush.  I listened to MSNBC’s “journalists” say that “everyone who wanted a flag for the first and last time in their lives got one.”

Then, with the conviction that Leonardo DiCaprio has for our great planet and all the equal nations on it, I wondered where these flags would end up.

Would the Republicans end up recycling them, like they did after 80,000 flags were wasted at the DNC?

Would the flags be properly disposed of?

Would the liberals take their flags to the next antiwar rally to be burned?

Or would fake patriot, fake eco-warrior liberals, simply leave them for someone else to clean up as long as it was the government or a corporation?

Either way, an evil rich person is funding the clean-up, and that’s the least they could do after 8 years of ease and favor.

How’s that new era of hope and responsibility going?

Palin Just Got Her Passport But Obama Just Got His Birth Certificate

24 11 2008

I’ve been joking with friends for months that, “I want a black President just as much as they do, I just don’t want an African American.”  Because many of my friends are also political junkies, they understand that I’m poking fun at the off chance that Obama is not a natural born citizen and is in fact from Kenya, as his paternal grandmother says.

In all seriousness, I don’t know what to make of this birth certificate thing.  Many say our next President couldn’t pass a routine background check for the FBI, but people that I respect have taken strongholds on both sides of the argument (also, many have taken no side like the MSM).

I believe he was born in Hawaii as he says, but I keep coming back to the fact that he could release it and embarrass all of the frothing right-wingers, then counter sue for defamation of character.  I can’t get that part out of my mind and the link above is quite professional as it reaches the same conclusion.  So, what’s on the birth certificate that Obama doesn’t want us to see (not to mention the rest of his records)?

Also, I find it awfully curious that NO ONE in the “big” media has even brought it up to disparage the conspiratorial conservatives either, or even to simply report that over a half dozen lawsuits were charged against Obama and all he had to do to win decisively, was show his birth certificate.  The fact that they haven’t even reported the existence of real lawsuits against a Presidential candidate, is a red flag and It seems to be a case of, “the lady doth not protest enough,” if you ask me.  What is the media afraid of uncovering by merely reporting the existence of said cases?

Obviously this is a poisoned pill.  Whoever brings it up becomes a lunatic and whoever brings it up loudly might just become a martyr.  That’s my only explanation as to why the Clinton campaign and the GOP refused as well.

As I understand it, the constitution does not allocate a government agency the responsibility of investigating whether a presidential candidate is a natural born citizen.  Rational people who understand our democracy, know this jurisdiction is supposed to be covered by the media.  Because of their complicit failure, citizen journalists have been forced to risk their reputations.  The most well known lawsuit against Obama by Phillip J. Berg was thrown out of court because the black robe ruled that citizens didn’t have the standing to make this inquiry.  It’s reminiscent of the FEC saying they won’t investigate the $650Million Obama campaign, which has at least $150Million in illegal donations because, “it would be embarrassing.”  Rest easy, they are going to check out McCain’s numbers soon.

So the framers left the backdoor open and the corrupt corporate media have abandoned their post in the watchtower.  It’s also likely the founders of the nation couldn’t envision someone with the audacity to attempt such a stunt.

This must come to a head.  It’s been boiling up for almost a year.  And now, because of an intelligently designed lawsuit and great persistence, it will at least be discussed at the Supreme Court. The difference this time which bolstered some credibility to the suit?  The prosecutor has sued both candidates to see if they are legally able to hold the High Office.  Many readers will instantly remember the story that was ran by every wire service and most news services last spring, that John McCain was ineligible to become President because he was born in Panama on a naval base.  Interesting that the MSM gave those charges the time of day.

Out Damn’d Spot, Out Obama Says!

17 11 2008

Liberals have hatefully fear mongered maintained for years that the Bush Administration would mimic a police state by; manipulating the media, censoring negative information, bringing back the draft, persecuting dissenting voices, breaking campaign promises, infringing on the constitution, hiding relevant evidence any time it was convenient, and cherry picking irrelevant evidence to bolster its arguments.

Curious ironies are already being revealed by ‘Office of the President Elect,” who may easily surpass Bush for totalitarian maneuverings.  During the campaign, Obama routinely scrubbed his website without update, after and frequently exposed his anti-American connections and initiatives.

Today, National Review alerted us that they are on to his, “down the memory hole” ways and promised a full report soon.  Conversely, the “big, corporate” media promised a story about Dubya’s doomed legacy and Obama’s undershirt preferences.  And for their favor, received $139 Billion.

Like The Child Who Covers His Own Eyes And Thinks You Can’t See Him

12 11 2008

I know some folks who consistently poopthebed about FOX.  Since none of them can name a daytime anchor or reporter, it’s obvious that O’Reilly and Hannity are really the targets of their rage.  Almost all of these folks also watch Olbermann’s Noggin every night.  It occured to me a while back that I’ve never seen Olbermann call himself a “lefty” or a “liberal” or openly admit who he was going to vote for.  To me, this is inexcusable for a media figure who partakes in such virulent and biased propaganda.  I understand now how difficult it must be for reporters to remain unbiased, but that makes their open announcements of their partisan leanings all the more necessary.  I’d always rather have them deliver the news they see fit, as long as they are clear about their point of view.  That way I can take it with a grain of salt.  For the record, Hannity clearly admits his party loyalty and O’Reilly never seems to…and he seems to be pretty conservative.

Olbermann was on the view and admitted to never voting…He thinks this makes his bias acceptable or unknowable, or something even though he bashfully submitted every time slightly less liberal, Babawa Wowtoes, called him an obsessing, mentally diseased liberal.  Him not voting is like Colonel Sanders abstaining from poultry.  And I think it makes him an even bigger idiot than I previously thought.  One for not voting while being a political animal, and two for his deranged, immature logic.
