George Bush Hates White People
June 30th, 2008 9:41 pm

Where are all of the Hollywood celebrities holding telethons asking for help in restoring Iowa and helping the folks affected by the floods?

Where are the Senate investigations?

Where is all the media asking the tough questions about why the federal government hasn’t solved the problem? Asking where the FEMA trucks (and trailers) are?

Why isn’t the Federal Government relocating Iowa people to free hotels in Chicago?

When will Spike Lee say that the Federal Government blew up the levees that failed in Des Moines ?

Where are Sean Penn and the rest of the useless Hollywood idiots?

Where are all the looters stealing high-end tennis shoes and big screen television sets?

When will we hear Governor Chet Culver say that he wants to rebuild a ‘vanilla‘ Iowa , because that’s the way God wants it?

Where is the hysterical 24/7 media coverage complete with reports of cannibalism?

Where are the people declaring that George Bush hates white, rural farmers?

How come in 2 weeks, you will never hear about the Iowa flooding ever again?

It’s nice to see justice served.

A Harris County grand jury decided today that Joe Horn should not be charged with a crime for shooting two burglary suspects he confronted outside his neighbor’s home in Pasadena last fall.

Horn called authorities after hearing breaking glass and seeing two men climb through a window into his next-door neighbor’s home in the 7400 block of Timberline.

The 911 operator urged Horn to remain inside, but he went outside with his 12-gauge shotgun and came face-to-face with Diego Ortiz, 30, and Hernando Riascos Torres, 38.

According to a transcript of Horn’s 911 call, which he made about 2 p.m., the operator repeatedly urged Horn to stay in his house, but Horn said he did not believe it would be right to let the burglars get away.

We need more neighbors like Joe Horn.

The two dead criminals were illegal immigrants from Colombia. One had been sent to prison for dealing cocaine and was deported in 1999. Maybe we should’ve just offered him a path to citizenship.

Things to Ponder…
June 28th, 2008 8:58 am

1. While all the mouth-breathing Democrats and their cohorts in the media keep claiming we’re in a recession, the economy continues to grow.

2. As if there weren’t enough reasons to not vote for Obama, how about the rumor that he’ll appoint Hillary Clinton to the Supreme Court?

3. And it’s another week and another Obama flip-flop. The moron apparently hasn’t learned about the YouTube effect. Democrats can no longer hide behind their inconsistent statements and outright lies knowing the MSM will cover for them.

The Hope For More (Loose) Change
June 19th, 2008 10:40 am

Barack Obama is wasting no time touting his experience as a politician. He’s been the presumptive Democrat nominee for barely 2 weeks and already he’s showing expert skill at breaking campaign promises.

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama said Thursday he’ll bypass the federal public financing system in the general election, abandoning an earlier commitment to take the money if his Republican rival did as well.

Obama, who set records raising money in the primary election, will forgo more than $84 million that would have been available to him in the general election. He would be the first candidate to do so since Congress passed 1970s post-Watergate campaign finance laws.

Obama is proving his political expertise by telling voters whatever is convenient at the moment to gain support. But this is the same guy who not only agreed not to opt out of the public financing system, but also promised to “aggressively pursue an agreement with the Republican nominee to preserve a publicly financed general election.”

Question I-B:
If you are nominated for President in 2008 and your major opponents agree to forgo private funding in the general election campaign, will you participate in the presidential public financing system?


Comments (please limit to 250 words or less):
I have been a long-time advocate for public financing of campaigns combined with free television and radio time as a way to reduce the influence of moneyed special interests. I introduced public financing legislation in the Illinois State Senate, and am the only 2008 candidate to have sponsored Senator Russ Feingold’s (D-WI) bill to reform the presidential public financing system. In February 2007, I proposed a novel way to preserve the strength of the public financing system in the 2008 election. My plan requires both major party candidates to agree on a fundraising truce, return excess money from donors, and stay within the public financing system for the general election. My proposal followed announcements by some presidential candidates that they would forgo public financing so they could raise unlimited funds in the general election. The Federal Election Commission ruled the proposal legal, and Senator John McCain (R-AZ) has already pledged to accept this fundraising pledge. If I am the Democratic nominee, I will aggressively pursue an agreement with the Republican nominee to preserve a publicly financed general election.

So Obama was for it, before he was against it… that campaign message sounds familiar.

But wait… there’s more. In order to position himself as the messiah of hope and change, the candidate who just opted out of the public financing system in order to raise hundreds of millions in private campaign contributions previously said:

“I am a cosponsor of the Fair Elections Now Act because I believe it is imperative that we get big money out of the political process.”

And what does he consider “big money”? Those evil 527 groups, of course.

“And we’ve already seen that he’s not going to stop the smears and attacks from his allies running so-called 527 groups, who will spend millions and millions of dollars in unlimited donations,” Obama said.

Someone might want to remind the messiah that liberals receive the support from those 527 groups by more than a 2-to-1 margin over conservatives.

Obama National Security Strategy
June 19th, 2008 6:22 am

This ought to make every American sleep comfortable at night… while terrorists are sneaking around the globe looking for new and exciting ways to decapitate every freedom-loving man and woman on the planet, Obama’s likely National Security Adviser told a major foreign policy conference in Washington that the future of US strategy in the war on terrorism should follow a lesson from the pages of Winnie the Pooh.

Richard Danzig, who served as Navy Secretary under President Clinton and is tipped to become National Security Adviser in an Obama White House… told the Centre for New American Security: “Winnie the Pooh seems to me to be a fundamental text on national security.”

Al-Qaida better think twice before attacking the Hundred Acre Woods…

I know I feel safer already.

Go Green Like Gore…
June 17th, 2008 10:06 pm

…and increase your energy consumption. That’s right, increase. Apparently since embarking on his globetrotting tour in jumbo jets and private SUVs to tell everyone else how they should live and advising everyone else to cut down on energy consumption, the Goracle has been offsetting everyone else’s energy conservation:

In the year since Al Gore took steps to make his home more energy-efficient, the former Vice President’s home energy use surged more than 10%, according to the Tennessee Center for Policy Research.

“A man’s commitment to his beliefs is best measured by what he does behind the closed doors of his own home,” said Drew Johnson, President of the Tennessee Center for Policy Research. “Al Gore is a hypocrite and a fraud when it comes to his commitment to the environment, judging by his home energy consumption.”

In the past year, Gore’s home burned through 213,210 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity, enough to power 232 average American households for a month.

Since taking steps to make his home more environmentally-friendly last June, Gore devours an average of 17,768 kWh per month –1,638 kWh more energy per month than before the renovations – at a cost of $16,533. By comparison, the average American household consumes 11,040 kWh in an entire year, according to the Energy Information Administration.

Sure, the Goracle thinks climate change is a serious problem… because if everyone else doesn’t buy into his climate change fraud, it will cease being a money-making venture for him. And that’s a serious problem… for him.

A few weeks ago, Democrat Congressman Paul Kanjorski accidentally told the truth. He admitted that Democrats were just exploiting the Iraq war for political purposes and had been dishonest to voters simply to “win back the Congress.”

So when confronted with his own truth about the lies, he lies about the truth… like any good Democrat would do. (Notice the great video overlay of Kanjorski’s very speech last month on top of video of Kanjorski denying he ever said the words)

It’s no wonder politics these days seems more hostile than it used to. Now access to Democrat lies and political tricks is available to anyone, anytime, anywhere… and they’re not liking it one bit.

The Audacity of Fraud
June 11th, 2008 12:47 pm

New election cycle, same old story… the party that doesn’t believe life begins at conception apparently doesn’t believe life ends at death, either… at least when it comes to the civic duty of voting.

It’s stories like this that show exactly why Democrats keep fighting voter identification laws around the country.

Secretary of State Jay Dardenne said Tuesday he will meet today with a Democrat-affiliated group responsible for a voter registration effort that is inundating East Baton Rouge and other parish registrars with bogus and incomplete applications.

Dardenne said his investigators are trying to determine if any state election laws have been violated as thousands of voter registration cards have been dumped on registrars offices through the efforts of VIP.

“We have some very real concerns about the data we are getting from them,” Dardenne said.

VIP is a Washington, D.C., group hired by national Democrats to register some 70,000 new voters in advance of the presidential and other federal elections this fall.

Two cards received in Caddo Parish had George W. Bush as the voter applicant with a 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. address in Shreveport, Dardenne said. Other cards have been filed for prisoners who cannot vote and dead people.

It has nothing to do with race, wealth or age and everything to do with fraud, fraud, fraud.

Iraq War Lies
June 9th, 2008 9:01 am

So the Democrats distributed a perfectly timed, campaign-season indictment of the Bush adminstration’s action in Iraq on the heels of an anti-war candidate clinching the party’s nomination. And their cohorts in the media picked up with the “Bush lied” meme and ran with it, full force.


Bush ‘falsely led US to Iraq war’, says report


Report: Bush Misled U.S. On Iraq Intel


“President Bush and his top officials deliberately misrepresented secret intelligence to make the case to invade Iraq, according to the Senate Intelligence Committee.”


Senate report slams Bush over prewar intelligence

And many, many more

Sounds mighty damning… if only any of it were true. Unfortunately for Democrats in Washington and in the media, the whole story is readily available to the average person. And the report that they all claim bashes the Bush administration for “lying”, “misleading”, “duping” and “misrepresenting” intelligence information for the purposes of launching an unnecessary war doesn’t come close to accusing the Bush administration of malfeasance… in fact, it bolsters the administration’s case.

On Iraq’s nuclear weapons program? The president’s statements “were generally substantiated by intelligence community estimates.”

On biological weapons, production capability and those infamous mobile laboratories? The president’s statements “were substantiated by intelligence information.”

On chemical weapons, then? “Substantiated by intelligence information.”

On weapons of mass destruction overall (a separate section of the intelligence committee report)? “Generally substantiated by intelligence information.”

Delivery vehicles such as ballistic missiles? “Generally substantiated by available intelligence.”

Unmanned aerial vehicles that could be used to deliver WMDs? “Generally substantiated by intelligence information.”

[S]tatements regarding Iraq’s support for terrorist groups other than al-Qaeda “were substantiated by intelligence information.”

Statements that Iraq provided safe haven for Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and other terrorists with ties to al-Qaeda “were substantiated by the intelligence assessments,” and statements regarding Iraq’s contacts with al-Qaeda “were substantiated by intelligence information.”

Here’s the report, read it for yourself. (Of course, if you’ve been paying attention, you know that even the Clinton administration tied Saddam & Iraq to bin Laden and al-Qaida on multiple occasions in the 1990s and often even warned us of the threat Iraq posed)

Sure, lying and deceit has been a big part of the Iraq war… but it’s been on the part of disingenous and politically-motivated Democrats and their liberal friends in the media… It’s their specialty, so it’s not surprising they’re so good at it.

But Don’t Take My Word For It…
June 5th, 2008 10:30 pm

So is the new Democrat Presidential nominee qualified to become the President of the United States?

Just ask the Democrats…

Clinton spokesman, Howard Wolfson

“Senator Obama is a fabulous orator, but we need more than words. We don’t need someone who says one thing and does another, somebody who talks a good game but doesn’t have the courage of their convictions. And on issue after issue, Senator Obama says one thing and does another.”

Hillary Clinton

“[McCain]’s never been the president, but he will put forth his lifetime of experience. I will put forth my lifetime of experience. Senator Obama will put forth a speech he made in 2002.”

and again…

“When the cameras are gone and the lights are off, what do you do next? He does not have a record of producing positive change.”

Bill Clinton

Give me a break. This whole thing is the biggest fairy tale I’ve ever seen.”

Joseph Wilson

“Obama’s gyrations on Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran are not the actions of one imbued with superior intuitive judgment, but rather the machinations of a political opportunist looking to avoid having his fingerprints on any issue that might be controversial, and require real judgment, while preserving his freedom to bludgeon his adversary for actually taking positions as elected office demands. It is hard to discern whether Senator Obama is a man of principle, but it is clear that he is not a man of substance. And that judgment, based on his hollow record, is inescapable.”

Geraldine Ferraro

“If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman (of any color) he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept.”

Democratic Rep. Dan Boren of Oklahoma

Democratic Rep. Dan Boren of Oklahoma said Tuesday Barack Obama is “the most liberal senator” in Congress and he has no intention of endorsing him for the White House.

Boren, the lone Democrat in Oklahoma’s congressional delegate, said that while Obama has talked about working with Republicans, “unfortunately, his record does not reflect working in a bipartisan fashion.”

Our nominee is not my first choice.”

Anthony Weiner (D-NY)

“Sen. Obama says he’s going to fight for his positions. In order to do that you have to have a position.”

Stephanie Tubbs-Jones (D-OH)

Obama “avoided taking stands on tough issues” like gun control, abortion rights and taxes.

Bottom line, here is how they sum up Obama:

The Clinton campaign sent out an email on Monday calling Obama Karl Rove’s preferred Democratic and blasting Obama for supposedly not understanding his own health care proposal, for lying when he has said he has not harbored presidential ambitions for years, and for allegedly running a slush fund (meaning a leadership political action committee, which he manages in the same manner Clinton runs her own leadership PAC). In other words, the fellow who has inspired thousands–if not millions–is a sleazy, hypocritical, incompetent sham.

But don’t worry, he still has support from his friends… like his convicted fundraiser buddy, Tony Rezko, close friend and family preacher Jeremiah “God Damn America” Wright, his Pentagon-bombing colleague and supporter William “Kill all the rich people” Ayers, friend and PLO fundraiser, Rashid Khalidi, and Marxist supporters in all 58 states.
