I Beg Your Pardon, Mr. President.

4 06 2009

How did that sound guys? I was kinda gunning for an Olbermann effect.

Here’s the reason for the indignation:

Back on December 5th, OOTB linked to a NYT story that Obama would deliver a major speech from an Islamic capital. Knowing that Obama would never mention honor killings and gay stonings, or remind Muslims that American blood and treasure had been recently and frequently spent in their favor, I wasn’t planning on saying anything about it.

I was prepared for placating platitudes about our aggressions and their humiliations, our selfishness and their pain.  I was willing to go along for the ride in the attempt to, win hearts and minds by exaggerating the population of Muslims in America and down-playing our very obvious differences.

I didn’t even care if he credited Islam with the Renaissance (which he did).

In fact, I was totally willing to give Obama a shot at serving up some of his refined taqiyya to the throngs of non-drinkers.

But then he had to go and say this:

America’s strong bonds with Israel are well known. This bond is unbreakable. It is based upon cultural and historical ties, and the recognition that the aspiration for a Jewish homeland is rooted in a tragic history that cannot be denied.

No.  A$$hole.

The aspiration for a Jewish homeland is rooted in history, PERIOD.

It’s discussed in the Bible and fortified by archeological evidence.

Attributing the existence of a Jewish state to the infamous tragedies of the Jews, no matter how eloquently put, plays into the hands of the anti-Zionists who can henceforth relate the Holocaust to Palestinian suffering.

It is weak-minded and lazy moral relativism and I loathe it like nothing else.

  • It begs the question of, why Arabs pay the price for European/Russian crimes.
  • It validates the presumption that the Palestinians are native to the land, while perpetuating the notion of Jews as pathetic nomads.
  • It cheapens the word, “holocaust” to the degree that Muslims believe the Jews deserve a real holocaust for imposing one and faking another.  And ultimately, it does not address the issue that Islam is by nature, anti-Semitic.
  • It reinforces conspiracy theorizing eugenicists like Nazis and Nation of Islamers/Black Liberation Theos, that modern Jews are fake Jews who stole Judaism.

So thanks for nothing Mr. Prez.

Atlas, who informs us that the despicable “Muslim Brotherhood” invited Obama to Egypt, has a pretty extensive post about the speech and it’s worth a look. She also has interesting news about how Obama’s keeping us safe in her highly readable stories about Eric Holder giving special protection to Muslims in America, and Obama ordering law enforcement agencies to back off counterterror investigations of Muslim-American converts.

American Thinker has an interesting ditty about one of the Quran verses that Obama quoted and the convenient omission of the subsequent verse.

Ed Morrissey at Hotair.com was pleasantly surprised and has solid links!

They told me that if I voted for McCain, we’d get a President whose speeches on Islam were praised at Hot Air and criticized at the HuffPo. And they were right!

Obama: USA Not A Christian Nation But Could Be Seen As A Muslim Country.

3 06 2009

The NYT has the scoop on the latter, where BHO told Le Monde that the US could be considered, “one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.

It’s total nonsense of course, like most of what he says.

The USA is ranked 38th in Muslim populations.

A few months ago when BHO was in Turkey, he said:

“One of the great strengths of the United States, is … we have a very large Christian population — we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation. We consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values.”

Great. “A nation of citizens.”

“Brilliant!”





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.

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?





Two Beauty Queens: Worlds Apart Yet United By Traditional Values.

8 05 2009

Could it be another sign that the so-called, “clash of civilizations has been greatly exaggerated?”

Prepare yourself for some warm-fuzzies as Blog of Hilarity introduces us to Sukaina al-Zayer, an unlikely beauty queen hopeful in Saudi Arabia’s only beauty pageant.

Saudi Miss Beautiful Morals

Here’s the scoop:

At Saudi Arabia’s only beauty pageant, the judges don’t care about a perfect figure or face. What they’re looking for in the quest for “Miss Beautiful Morals” is the contestant who shows the most devotion and respect for her parents.

*aka, “least likely to be honor killed.”

“The idea of the pageant is to measure the contestants’ commitment to Islamic morals… It’s an alternative to the calls for decadence in the other beauty contests that only take into account a woman’s body and looks,” said pageant founder Khadra al-Mubarak.

“The winner won’t necessarily be pretty,” she added. “We care about the beauty of the soul and the morals.”

There are few beauty pageants in the largely conservative Arab world. The most dazzling is in Lebanon, the region’s most liberal country, where contestants appear on TV in one-piece swimsuits and glamorous evening gowns and answer questions that test their confidence and general knowledge.

See! Conservatism is like totally obsolete!

There are no such displays in ultra-strict Saudi Arabia, where until Miss Beautiful Morals was inaugurated last year, the only pageants were for goats, sheep, camels and other animals, aimed at encouraging livestock breeding.

Of course regular readers know all about that.

Back here in America, Sukaina al-Zayer’s conservative Christian counterpart is being slandered for opposing same-sex marriage and not having the courage of her convictions to at least wear a burqa/Darth Vader mask.  The hypocrite even got breast implants!

I mean the nerve of that “stupid bitch/c*n^”

This must be a “before” picture.

Here’s some links about this crucial issue facing America and Prejean’s awful homophobic hypocrisy which has been dug up by the radical liberal homosexual lobby with the intent to destroy Ms. Prejean:

Carrie Prejean’s parent’s divorce was messy and included allegations of homosexuality.

Carrie Prejean’s racy photos released.

Prejean’s family used homosexuality as an insult.

Related: Iowahawk, “Gay marriage opponent’s topless photos leaked.”  Hint; It’s Obama, who shares his views on same-sex marriage with Bush and Prejean.

UPDATE: More artistic pics of Prejean have arrived thanks to radical smear-merchants!  And, I do mean, THANKS!

UPDATE: MSNBC is still defaming her.





Will Anyone Catch It?

28 04 2009

The Open Borders crowd is awfully quiet huh?

Just wait until white people start calling it the Mexican Flu.

Truthfully, they’re just afraid hospitals might become more loaded with illegal aliens and college spring breakers, and Americans might start to question some other costs of our third-world southern neighbors who were on the brink of collapse before this potential mess even started.

I wouldn’t worry if I were them.

Recently, a liberal friend warned me about the dangers of global population and resource depletion.  He was nearly apocalyptic about oil, water, land, food…everything.  He insisted that Mother Nature was already rebelling and that the economic crisis was just another symptom.  He was really good at playing a Buddhist-type vibe that stressed the, “big picture” and the Butterfly Effect.

Just don’t ask him if American: schools, highways, hospitals, insurance claims, prisons or elections are affected whatsoever by illegal aliens.

But enough about liberalism as a mental disorder.  Let’s talk about how this conservative thinks we should follow Europe’s lead on this one!

From E. Eduardo Castillo, Associated Press Writer:

At Germany’s bustling Frankfurt Airport, people suspected of having the disease were examined before getting off planes, said the health minister for Hesse state, Juergen Banzer. The policy was in effect since Saturday at continental Europe’s second-busiest airport, after Charles de Gaulle in Paris.

Governments in Asia — with potent memories of SARS and avian flu outbreaks — heeded the warning amid global fears of a pandemic.

Singapore, Thailand, Japan, Indonesia, and the Philippines dusted off thermal scanners used in the 2003 SARS crisis and were checking for signs of fever among passengers from North America. South Korea and Indonesia introduced similar screening.

In Malaysia, health workers in face masks took the temperatures of passengers as they arrived on a flight from Los Angeles.

Russia, Hong Kong and Taiwan said visitors returning from flu-affected areas with fevers would be quarantined.

Australian Health Minister Nicola Roxon said pilots on international flights would be required to file a report noting any flu-like symptoms among passengers before being allowed to land in Australia.

China said anyone experiencing flu-like symptoms within two weeks of arrival had to report to authorities.

India will start screening people arriving from Mexico, the United States, Canada, New Zealand, Spain, Britain and France for flu-like symptoms, said Vineet Chawdhry, a top Health Ministry official. It also will contact people who have arrived from Mexico and other affected countries in the past 10 days to check for the symptoms, he said.

Meanwhile, America has done nothing to protect its citizens but at least we’re insulated from Mexico by Obamair.  And Obama is happy because he hasn’t had to offend the millions of illegal aliens who helped elect him and other Democrats.





“Sometimes I Feel Like, Somebody’s Watching Me”

20 04 2009

And listening to my calls, and tracking my URL visits, and storing my GPS movements, etc…

This paranoia is something I share with liberals, who elected Obama in large part because he pledged to restore our Constitutional rights of privacy and ditch the power-grabbing Police State model while declassifying Bush’s previously stonewalled perversions so that we could heal.

However, it seems Obama is turning out to be potentially far more invasive than Bush, and even a few liberals (outside the corporate msm) are noticing.

I expected this from Obama, a man who has now appointed more, “czars” than the Romanovs, as The Volokh Conspiracy highlights:

Over some 300 years, Russia was ruled by a total of 18 czars of the Romanov dynasty. However, as David Rothkopf of Foreign Policy points out, the Obama administration has now appointed more czars than that in just three months.

But back to Obama the Constitution Shredder, from Reason:

Barack Obama, who at one point was looking at least a little better than his predecessor on the issue of warrantless domestic surveillance, may turn out to be just as bad. During his campaign he criticized the Bush administration for flouting the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) by monitoring communications involving people in the U.S. without a court order. But then he went along with amendments to FISA that legalized such surveillance, even giving in on the issue of retroactive immunity for the telecommunications companies that facilitated it. Now The New York Times reports that the National Security Agency has been abusing its new statutory powers, collecting purely domestic communications along with the international phone calls and email messages covered by the FISA amendments:

Several intelligence officials, as well as lawyers briefed about the matter, said the N.S.A. had been engaged in “overcollection” of domestic communications of Americans. They described the practice as significant and systemic, although one official said it was believed to have been unintentional.

Meanwhile, the Obama administration is trying to quash an Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) lawsuit aimed at holding Bush administration officials responsible for warrantless surveillance conducted prior to the FISA amendments, surveillance that Obama himself has said was illegal. It argues that allowing the lawsuit to proceed would harm national security—a claim frequently made by the Bush administration, which Obama has criticized as excessively secretive. Obama’s Justice Department has gone even further than the Bush administration, arguing that the PATRIOT Act immunizes government officials who participate in illegal surveillance, except when “the Government obtains information about a person through intelligence-gathering, and Government agents unlawfully disclose that information.”

The Atlantic’s, Marc Ambinder has something on Bush’s favorite loophole, the state secrets privilege:

The Obama administration suffered a bit of a legal setback this afternoon: a federal judge in California rejected the administration’s assertion of the state secrets privilege in the civil suit brought by an Islamic charity that was allegedly subjected to illegal NSA surveillance.





Michelle’s Full-Time Makeup Artist: “She Has Angry Eyebrows.”

18 04 2009

You don’t say!

Maybe because Michelle’s an angry person?

michllll

The NYPost says:

“No other First Lady has had a full-time makeup artist.”

OOTB says:

“No other First Lady has been this image-conscious, and no other First Lady has needed to be completely reinvented.”

PS. Sorry dear readers for that traumatizing picture.

I’ll make it up to you.
