Maobama Does The Border Shuffle.

And no, it’s not the old soft-shoe either… though our race-baiting, Balkanizing, anti-American President looks more and more like some Vaudeville clown with every passing day.

Before I explore that farther, I’d like to take this opportunity to address a few comments we got yesterday that I feel need to be addressed. These comments were along the lines of, “If the leadership votes to increase the debt ceiling, I will have had it with the (Republican) party”.

Hey, I feel you, I really do… but listen. No splinter group, no third party, will ever be successful in this political climate. At best, what will occur is that the Conservative vote will be split, handing the DeMarxists another victory. I don’t think we’ll be fooled by another Ross Perot, but if you look at the way the Lame Stream Media is pushing Mitch Daniels as one of the few people the White House is afraid of… give me break please… sic ad nauseum. Mitch Daniels is another in the mold of centrist deal-makers that the GOP keeps pushing forward. Anybody that the inside-the-beltway pundits want to bring forward can’t be good for Conservatism or America.

What we need to do, folks, is to make the RINOs pay at the ballot box. We have the numbers for it. Don’t believe the LSM when they try to convince you that the Tea Party is finished… that we’ve shot our bolt. Man, are they in for some culture shock! We’re here… and we’re getting more angry every day that the clowns on both sides of the political spectrum delay the inevitable reckoning with the obscene 14 trillion debt which is crushing this country… and any hint of a real recovery.

Meanwhile, down in Texas, the Anointed One has launched into full illegal alien amnesty mode and the Demarxists have re-launched the Dream Act, which should be put back to bed for a long sleep… like permanently. There was not one single word of truth in anything that Obama said in his demagogic rant. Apparently, I’m not the only one who thought so. There were audible cries of ‘racist’.

It’s a far cry from the adulation of the empty-headed masses. Gee, Obama, maybe you should have made it a kegger. Now, if the Repubic leadership can just figure out who the enemy is….

Obamanomics: You Can’t Have It ‘Cause I Want It. It’s Too Good For You.

No matter how you slice it, just about all of us have had all of Barack Hussein Obama’s non-existent recovery… or his delusional monetary policies… forget Geithner and Bernanke. This economy is Obama and Obama alone… if, and that’s a big ‘if’, with the questionable leadership of the Republicans who ‘came in like a lion’ and are currently slinking around in the background, trying to figure out how to get out of all that bold talk about how they were going to be the forefront of the Conservative Revolution.

This isn’t what we sent them to Congress for, folks… not by a long shot. The Repubics (thanks, Mark, it just sounds so much like what they are) have been distancing themselves from Paul Ryan’s proposed cuts.

What’s really sticking in my craw, and probably a lot of yours too, is that His Imperial Wannabe and his entire rotten regime are so imminently beatable. Him and his Senate have absolutely nothing to run on… nothing! And yet we are witnessing a Republican Party, and most especially a leadership, which is working hard to lose it all for us.

They pretty obviously have forgotten who put them in office. Some weak Repubics are just going along to be part of the herd. Sorry… not good enough. To those establishment Repubics who think they have hijacked, or somehow or another suborned, the Tea Party Patriot movements… you’ve shown us just what and who you are. The debt ceiling issue may very well turn out to be the leadership’s swan song as far as the Conservatives/Tea Party/Patriots are concerned.

There are very few families, or singles for that matter, who have not been affected by this recession/depression. We’re all pretty sore about it. People do know who’s responsible. I’m predicting a large scale RINO hunt.

No Body, No Pictures – “Trust Us”.

When one of your kids tells you a plausible tale, and then proceeds to change the story… several times, you can safely assume that you’re being taken for a walk down the primrose path. Hopefully, it’s just youthful high-jinks and not a symptom of other underlying issues.

Likewise, when our government makes a spectacular claim of achievement and then changes its story several times, virtually within hours… and then several more times daily for almost a week… well, something just isn’t right.

Couple that to this regime’s record for veracity. Is it any wonder that most of the country’s mood about this whole thing is uniformly skeptical, now that the first flush of exuberance over the execution of the # 1 most visible terrorist in the world, and the admitted mastermind of the murder of three thousand Americans, is over?

This Marxist cabal, masquerading as a legitimate government, has for two and a half weary years lied through their eye-teeth and every other orifice they possess. The definition of insanity being repeating the same action with negative results over and over again.

Nothing can take away from the magnificent performance of our special forces people around the globe. These heroes’ deeds go largely unsung in their unending war with Islamic terror. The unvarnished truth is that these dedicated “best of the best” understand, as do I, that we are in a world war right now. A war without borders or rules other than kill or be killed, and the measure of how good you really are is how long you live.

This war, which the pantywaists in our government refuse to call a war, would have already washed over us had it not been for the sacrifice of our military. The surest indication of that is the treatment of, or the supposed treatment of, the corpse of Bin Laden. Instead of rolling that filth up in a pigskin with a mouth full of pig testicles and dumping him in the main square in Islamabad, we gave him a deep six burial… with a forty minute diatribe disguised as a prayer service in Arabic, no less. Wanna bet it was at the direct orders of Hussein Obama?

What about Daniel Pearl, Obama? Remember him? Your scumbag friends couldn’t wait to show the Jewish boy screaming his life away as they cut his throat. We want to see the pictures… we want to see the evidence.

Our Intelligence And Special Ops Triumph Over The Worst Obama’s Marxists Can Do.

From all reports, it was a nearly flawless operation with the exception of the loss of one helicopter. We’ll probably never know all of the details, nor should we. Special operations / black ops are just that… highly clandestine, and therefore almost always top secret.

It’s also a singular truth that the left, starting with Jimma Boy Carter, has been steadily eroding our intelligence community’s ability to defend our country’s interests throughout the world. Even Carter’s bumbling incompetence couldn’t match the decimation of the ‘first most ethical administration in US history’… that of Billy Jeff Clinton. He, Hillary, and the rest of the Marxists in his government, did their best to decimate not only the intelligence community and cripple their ability to do their jobs, but leaked classified information at every opportunity.

Our ‘assets’ (agents and informers) were compromised all over the world, and many lost their lives to this shameful treason… the Clintons, along with Senator Dianne Feinstein, whose husband Richard Blum has been in bed with the Chicoms for over 25 years. Deeply embedded, I should say. He and his leftist wife have made multiple millions of dollars, literally on the backs and bodies of our gallant and magnificent military. This is the pedigree that our increasingly onerous Hussein Obama brings to the table. Another snake in a long line of snakes.

In my article the day before yesterday I alluded that this operation was not any great act of courage by the Enlightened One, but rather the culmination of ten years of hard and concentrated work set in motion by George Bush. Obama never would have made such a move on his own.

What happened was that he was forced into giving his ok for the operation. Obama, the great lover of all things Muslim, would never have given up his icon except under huge political duress. He was faced with the political certainty that if he buried this intel, someone would release it during the hottest part of the 2012 election cycle and that, on top of the rest of his dismal performance, would put finis to his second term aspirations.

The surest indication of the truth of this is that Obama didn’t get the ratings ‘bounce’ of which the left was so palpitatingly expectant. It didn’t happen. Nothing Obama can say or do is going to sway the American people, no matter what the legions of his Lame Stream Media have to say about it.

Special Forces Take Out Osama Bin Laden.

This is great news, for a number of very good reasons. The Blighted One will probably try and take credit for the manhunt that was initiated by Obama’s much-maligned predecessor, George Bush. The truth is, and don’t let any of the BS we’re about to hear blasted across the airwaves fool you, that this is the culmination of a manhunt that began on September 11, 2001. It is very much like Obama to take credit for other people’s work… and ideas. No matter, it’s still a great boost to American morale.


The early hours of May 2, 2011... the crowd at Ground Zero remembers.

We found out how very close we came to bagging him during the combined ops assault on the mountain fortress of Tora Bora in December 2001. Since then, the noose has been slowly tightened by hundreds of special forces operatives and intelligence agents. I’m listening to the Dismal Failure in the White House as I’m writing this and, true to form, it’s ‘I’, ‘Me’ and ‘My’ all over the place. This may turn out to be the one highlight in Obama’s one term (from my keyboard to God’s ears) presidency.

More importantly, it tells every two-bit bad guy out there that if he becomes a big enough pain in the butt we’ll come after you and we’ll kill you. We can expect the Islamists to go ape doo doo over this. Well and good. We may as well let them know that we understand that we are in a war to the death with their seventh century cult of death.

The message is this… we may have our internal issues but our country has a way of cleansing itself of people like Barack Hussein Obama and his Marxist cabal. People in countries around the world also know that China and their puppet surrogate North Korea, Russia, Iran, Syria, and that idiot in Venezuela notwithstanding… this is, and shall remain, the greatest country in the world… and they know it.

San Francisco Bay Area And Northern California Patriot Alert.

May… the first of the month, international communism’s banner day, when the enlightened prance around maypoles singing ‘The International’… or else! They already had April 22 set aside as Earth Day, under the guise of international greenery and enough vacuum-brained kumbaya to gag a skunk ape.

In another coincidental, totally random accident of history, Vladimir Ilyich Lenin was born to well-off, upper middle class parents on April 22, 1870. Just goes to show you that privileged ingrates weren’t invented in the sixties. Then we have Karl Marx, who entered into this veil of tears on May 5, 1818… also of privileged background. That’s how it started back then. Those of privilege and wealth telling poor, uneducated masses that paradise lay around the corner… just trust us.

Not much has changed in the intervening years. It didn’t work then… it hasn’t worked anywhere since… it’s not working now, though the mouth that roared is doing his best to see it brought to fruition. Then the left ran into the Patriot Movement. It’s the left’s immovable object. It’s the American people and the American spirit in all its amazing resilience and determination.

Today, May 1st, in illegal alien enclaves all over the nation, illegal felons will parade demanding their rights in our sovereign nation. This column strongly urges any Patriots within any of these cities to find out where your local Tea Party groups are gathering to protest this blight upon our sovereign soil and the laws of our country, and join them.

Here, in the San Francisco Bay Area, the Bay Area Patriots are meeting at San Francisco City Hall at 12 noon today.

The Los Angeles Lame Stream press is already throwing out hysteria leads like ‘Tea Parties could mean trouble’ ad vomitum. If you recall last year, the only trouble came from the felonious felons themselves. Still, as they say, there is safety in numbers… especially in the world’s greatest outdoor toilet. If there are enough of us, the cretins will think twice about starting anything.

Oh, My!

They were the words uttered by the new Princess as she surveyed the throngs of well-wishers that were assembled outside the palace gates. The networks had their lip-readers, but even those without that talent, like myself, could easily add the text to the image.

It was a crowd as large, and as well-behaved, as any of the Tea Party rallies. The similarities do not end there. This was pure, unabashed patriotism. Even those who are indifferent, or opposed, to the concept of a monarchy could not deny that there was a feel-good factor about the whole affair.

While a sentimental outpouring is largely expected from the inhabitants of ‘middle England’, the folk from the traditionally less enthusiastic regions of Britain joined in the festivities. The flags of Scotland, Wales and Cornwall mingled with the thousands of Union Flags… not to mention the representatives of former colonies that, over the centuries, have not always enjoyed an affaire de coeur with royalty. Remember George III?

While the day was hailed as an indication of the ‘modernization’ of the monarchy, becoming more ‘in-touch’ with the people, thankfully it was totally devoid of the fake political correctness that infests so many state occasions. It was perfectly acceptable to fly national flags, sing patriotic songs and marvel at the fly-past of the ‘Battle of Britain Memorial Flight’ (a Lancaster, Hurricane and Spitfire for you aviation freaks), a reminder of ‘Britain’s finest hour’. It was closely followed by four jet fighters in formation which, I wondered, were perhaps the last four after swathes of defense cuts!

No mention of the EU, of globalization, or multi-denominationalism. The joy of the cartwheeling vicar (sure to become a YouTube hit) could be taken as a celebration that the Anglican Church is still the official state religion of England, despite the attempts of a certain ethnic group to create their own religious courts within the realm. It was ironic that the Abbey proceedings were conducted by an Archbishop who showed some approval for that idea.

The day had some detractors, claiming that the extra public holiday created a loss in production that far exceeded the gains in revenue through tourism and associated paraphernalia. In challenging economic times, that’s fair comment. But you can’t fix a price tag on patriotism, tradition, pride and morale. If the billions of dollars (or pounds) spent can restore these feelings to a disillusioned nation, it’s money well used.

So what can America learn from this? Well, although there is no monarchy, we have our own ‘royalty’. The Founders and The Constitution are the basis of this country, along with the Judeo-Christian principles that inspired them. Don’t let the progressives stifle that message with their treasonous slander. Be proud of your heritage and the traditions that exist in this still relatively young country. Keep your faith in God and protect the Constitution at all costs.

If we follow these simple rules, the United States that we know and love will last as long as, or longer than, the British monarchy.

Don’t Get Mad….

… Get even, or so the saying goes. That’s a bit of an exaggeration, actually. I don’t get mad as such… it’s more of a frustration that I feel boiling up inside. You might think that the current administration, or the looniest of the left, is the cause of this combustible condition.

Well… no. They are what they are. Crazy, misguided, dangerously blinded by their ideology… whatever. But, we know what to expect from them, as does the average Joe when he takes time to look away from reality TV long enough to realize that he too is being hit hard by their Marxist machinations. What I’m talking about is the liberal media, in its many guises… and disguises.

In yesterday’s article, I covered the Letterman-Maher conversation (CBS, Monday night). I use the word ‘conversation’ in its loosest form… it was no more than an exercise in GOP/Conservative/Tea Party bashing. Performances like this are all too common on the major networks. The host gives the liberal guest carte blanche for scathing personal attacks. In sharp contrast, when a conservative guest (a relatively rare occasion) is on the couch, they are put in a defensive posture from the get go.

Political satire has been with us as long as democracy itself. Indeed, it is an important part of that freedom. From the 19th century pencil cartoons, which gave us the elephant and donkey, to stand-up television monologues and edited YouTube videos, it is often amusing regardless of the viewer’s political leanings.

The danger arises when media outlets which pertain to be impartial become vehicles for a specific agenda, either of their own volition or that of those holding the purse strings. Before I go any further, I hear the stray liberal that wandered on to this site screaming “What about Fox News?” Well, FNC is split into news and opinion programming… it is also a cable channel, subscription only, so you don’t have to watch it.

Of course, that goes for any station or newspaper… you don’t have to watch or read it. I once teased Skip about him reading a certain well-known Bay Area newspaper. He replied, “I wouldn’t use it to line the bird cage”.

Why, then, does the left seem to have the upper hand in popular media? The answer is leverage. I can think of one or two legal terms to describe their activities, but I don’t want to push my First Amendment rights too far, which is something they do all too often with their unfounded allegations against the Tea Party.

Popular media, like the main television broadcast networks, has a large proportion of definite or possible Democrat voters. If they put out a message that conflicts with the leftist ideology, they put the screws on the advertisers… “Pull your ads or we boycott your products”. This escalates to the point where the networks, in the interest of their revenue and a quiet life with their employee unions, take the easy option.

The result is that only one point of view is heard. Unfortunately, there are millions of people who believe that everything they are told on television is solid fact. Global warming is a classic example. How many companies advertise on the networks, boasting of their contribution to carbon reduction? What would happen if an energy company aired an ad that said “Forget the carbon emission fallacy, we’re producing American gasoline to keep the country running”? There would be mass protests from the left, accompanied by the usual thug tactics courtesy of the union goons.

Naturally, it would never get that far. The station would never air the commercial to start with. It’s far easier, and safer, to take the PC approach, the one that’s been hammered into every home and school in the country… the lies that masquerade as fact. We’ll be back after these important messages…..

The Same Old Jokes (And That’s Just The Presenters).

A regular reader of Skip’s articles, Bill Hallbert, commented that the use of the term ‘Lame Stream Media’ is too polite… that ‘Pravda West’ would be more appropriate. A good point, Bill… one that, along with some events the last couple of days, has inspired me to write this article while sitting in for Skip.

It was my misfortune to catch Bill Maher in conversation with Letterman last night. Naturally, it descended to the depths of old, worn-out attacks on anything right-of-center in a feeble attempt at humor. Donald Trump’s hair, Sarah Palin’s mind, George W. Bush’s presidency and the Tea Party were all precursors to the stage-prompted bouts of applause and laughter.

Letterman was in his element… he could let his guest gush with spiel that reflected his own views and not even have to think about asking any questions… probably a good thing, given the question put to Cote de Pablo (Ziva David) later in the show… “Is there a real NCIS?” Yes, Dave, there’s a real FBI too. And a real US government… or what’s left of it!

After mocking The Donald and Sarah Palin’s brief tenure in a state where “no one lives” (I’m sure that endeared them to the folks in Alaska!), blaming Bush (what’s new?) for the debt crisis (while conveniently omitting the fact that Obama is racking up more debt than all of his 43 predecessors combined), they turned their attention to the Tea Party.

It may have been my imagination, but I got the feeling that a large portion of the audience were not so keen to commit to the prompts for applause and laughter… to the point where discernible groans and grunts of disapproval could be heard. Maher said that he would refrain from using the word ‘Teabagger’ if the Tea Party stopped calling it ‘Obamacare’. Why, Bill? Wasn’t it Obama that pushed so hard to get it passed, to the detriment of all else? You wouldn’t be distancing yourself from it, knowing that it, along with the federal debt, will finish both Obama and the Democrats in 2012? If you were really smart, you’d put the blame for the health care disaster at the feet of Bush, just as you did with federal debt… call it ‘Bushcare’!

One thing that Maher said resonated with me, amongst all the stereotypical trash that he regurgitated. It was something about the Tea Party actually doing something, and the fact that we spend our time on internet forums complaining about deficit levels. Could that partly be because the alphabet networks are vehicles for the likes of Maher and Letterman? “Corporate America’s useful idiots”? I think I’d rather be a useful idiot than a useless know-it-all.

Tomorrow, I’ll be looking at some other aspects of the left’s control of the media.

When The Snake Bites The Fox.

A fox swims across a swollen torrent, giving a stranded snake a ride across on his back after the snake promises not to bite him. When they reached the opposite bank the snake bit the fox. The fox exclaimed “You promised! Why did you bite me?” The snake replied, “I’m a snake. That’s what snakes do.”

It seems that that’s just what the American electorate is at this particular moment in time… Snakebit. We seem genuinely surprised when a snake behaves like a snake. We’ve known for some time what and who Barack Obama is. We also know that he promised to destroy our energy sector. Instead, he would flood the country with solar panels manufactured in and exported back to this country from China.

The scythe-bladed monster wind turbines… you know, the ones nobody wants in their back yard? These wind turbines are another cornerstone of Obama’s leftist energy dream world. Remember when he promised to make it impossible for coal operators to continue to function? Yes, he did. You may not have heard about it since the Lame Stream Media has been devotedly covering for him going ‘way back’.

It didn’t help that not a single Republican stood up to Obama and fought him toe-to-toe. Paralyzed by fear at being called racist, they allowed themselves to sideline and silence themselves as well. We have repeatedly paid for their timidity.

Maybe it’s just not my nature to be swayed by someone like our Mr Hussein. Or, most probably, having been in the Marine Corps for as long as I was gave me an eye for leadership qualities. Obama has none. I wrote some time back, actually a couple of times, that Obama’s attacks on the energy sector were not making the DeMarxists any friends and it was going to cost him, come 2012. That was before the current middle-east blowup, which is no more spontaneous than one of Obama’s speeches.

He has turned virtually all the energy producing states throughout the coal belt against him. The Gulf Coasters saw him for the empty phony he was, and there’s no way he’s going to sell those people on the story that it’s the evil speculators again… Horseradish. What he has done, in his heartless arrogance, is a blatant sell-out to the radical environmental elements of his hard left. His actions and inactions have caused tens of thousands of Gulf Coasters to lose their jobs, and took an area that once had a thriving economy and crippled it.

These people aren’t going to forget. Neither are the truckers who are now paying over a thousand dollars just to fill their trucks. Rising food costs? You bet. We know who’s responsible… the American people know… and we’ll remember. No matter how you change your tune Obama, we’ll remember.
