When Obama Says Travel Is Safe Just Remember He's the Guy Who Promised A Publicaly Funded Campaign, Open Negotiations on Health Care, No Lobbyists etc


If the Goal Is to Bring Terrorists, Guns, Bombs Army Bases and Air Liners Together Then, Yes, the System Is working Fine

Below are two quotes from Ann Coulter's most recent column.

The "warning signs" exhibited by this particular passenger included the following:

His name was Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab.

He's Nigerian.

He's a Muslim.

His name was Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab.

He boarded a plane in Lagos, Nigeria.

He paid nearly $3,000 in cash for his ticket.

He had no luggage.

His name was Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab.

Two months ago, his father warned the U.S. that he was a radical Muslim and possibly dangerous.

If our security procedures can't stop this guy, can't we just dispense with those procedures altogether? What's the point exactly?

. . . . . . . . . . . .

he government is like the drunk looking for his keys under a lamppost. Someone stops to help, and asks, "Is this where you lost them?" No, the drunk answers, but the light's better here.
The government refuses to perform the only possibly effective security check -- search Muslims -- so instead it harasses infinitely compliant Americans. Will that help avert a terrorist attack? No, but the Americans don't complain.

Another Senate Demo CD

This guy is almost over qualified for the Senate.
A scout from the Democratic caucus says that with the right training this man could become the greatest Senator ever. "Except for his race he is perfect,' concluded the Dem scout, "we'd kill for a Muslim south paw."

The Virus of the Federal Bureauarcy

"In effect, some significant portion of the stimulus package can be regarded as taxpayer funding of the Democratic Party. Needless to say, no Republicans need apply."
"At some point -- and this already has occurred in much of Western Europe -- public sector spending tends to choke off private-sector growth. America's current high unemployment levels have been commonplace in much of Western Europe for the last 25 years.
"The question now is whether they will become commonplace in the United States in the decade ahead. The decision by the Obama administration and the Democratic Congress to hold public-sector employees in place while the private sector is gravely weakened has the potential to place us on that trajectory.
The unemployment data show that this recession has had a much greater effect on private-sector workers than on public employees, on men than on women, on blue-collar workers than on white-collar employees.
"This seems not to have gone unnoticed. Democrats have been surprised that so many downscale voters oppose their big spending programs. Maybe many of those voters have noticed how much of that spending has gone to public-sector union members, leaving the rest of America with a less than happy new year."

--- Michael Barone

And this problen is not caused by just Democrats.

A Golden Oldie: Ziegler v, Brewer


Al Qaeda Claims Responsibility for Nuclear Destruction of Duluth: Napolitano States, “I Plan to Hold Palin and Fox News as Persons of Interest.”

I know that Napolitano is incompetent. Millions of other Americans know it. I wonder if Obama will ever figure it out. Of course Obama is a large part of the problem. He has had her on a witch hunt against nonexistent dangerous right wing extremists instead of working on making America safer. She has been putting too much attention and energy into self-serving sniveling about Obama’s political enemies. But that seems to be one of the main themes of the collection of losers clustered in the White House. When faced with criticism they invariably blame George Bush or Fox News. This doesn’t exactly inspire confidence or respect.
The Fort Hood shooter had been having regular conversations with a noted jihad recruiter. The FBI and the army knew about this for a long time. They also knew about his opinions that were bizarre for an army officer. I think that it is Napolitano’s responsibility as head of homeland security to make sure that cases like this do not just drift from year to year. But instead of doing her job she was caught up in a crusade against these nonexistent right wing terrorists, not one of which has ever been identified or brought to justice. If she was a doctor or a nurse she could creditably be accused of malpractice.
Now we have to look at the Christmas underwear bomber. He could not even travel to England because he is on their terror watch list. His own father told our state department how dangerous he might be. But somehow his presence on the Brit’s list and his father’s warning were not enough for Napolitano and her fellow clowns to pay attention to the kid. And his recent presence in Yemen is apparent of no more note to the incompetents at DHS than a trip to Disney World. It is enough to make you wonder if Napolitano and her senior staff do not get a bonus for every dead American. She famously said that the system worked. And the system got this beeping, flashing red light onto an airplane with ease. Does her system also help terrorists transport nuclear weapons?
It is no fun to think about but this much failure has to make one wonder how deep and entrenched it is. It is time for Napolitano to go. When we have all those who died at Fort Hood and all those who nearly died on Christmas Day and a head of DHS who blandly tells us there is no problem but spends her time in right wing extremist fantasy land, it is time for a major change. Somehow I think this headline is not too great a leap: Al Qaeda Claims Responsibility for Nuclear Destruction of Duluth: Napolitano States, “I Plan to Hold Palin and Fox News as Persons of Interest.”

Financial Reporter Marries Obama Finance Chief

I Have A 12 Point Plan for the Drunken Senator

To the tables down at Mory's
To the place where Louie dwells
To the dear old Temple bar we love so well

We're poor little lambs who have lost our way
Baa, baa, baa
We're little black sheep who have gone astray
Baa, baa, baa
Gentleman rankers off on a spree
Doomed from here to eternity
Lord have mercy on such as we
Baa, baa, baa

When I saw Max Baucus’ drunken rant from the Senate chamber I was reminded of what a fool my friend Mory made of himself when he gave a drunken toast at his third daughter’s wedding. Mory was as incoherent, slurring and repetitive as Baucus was. But at least he didn’t call every Republican in the room a coward. But Mory wasn’t brought up in a barn.
Mory has changed greatly in the past few years. His wife and daughter now speak to him. So I got in touch with him to see if there is anything that can be done to help Max Baucus. “Well I have a 12 point plan for the Senator,” Mory told me. “We are at a real disadvantage trying to help him because he is convinced everything is wonderful. He has an endless budget with which to hire scores of people to tell him how great he is and how lucky the country is to have him serving in the Senate. All while Senator Genius’ liver is turning into a useless cirrhotic rock. Though I wouldn’t be surprised if there isn’t someone in that crowd reminding him that he will be automatically put at the front of the transplant list while the surgeon general goes on Face the Nation and swears that no special favor was granted.” Mory laughed and said, “Even here in Dubuque we’re figuring out the Obama Way.”
“What are the 12 points of the plan?” I asked.
Mory laughed, “That’s AA’s 12 steps. And that’s the rub. We can’t help him until he realizes he needs help. And that day might never come. I bet right this minute Baucus has himself convinced that the whole thing is George Bush’s fault. It’s the Obama Way. And maybe he’s even trying to figure out some way to get CSPAN tossed from the Senate. And if Harry Reid puts a few hundred million dollars in just the right places they might get enough votes to pull that off. I bet Barack ‘Transparency’ Obama has just been looking for chance like this to cover more up.”
“Mory,” I said, “you seem pretty knowledgeable about what’s going on in Washington. Seems to me in the old days you weren’t interested in politics.”
“I never was interested,” replied Mory. “But then my sainted grandma became convinced that ACORN was going to be given the power to kill her whenever they want. I knew she had things mixed up. I started reading and watching so I’d know enough to help quiet her fears. Turns out she wasn’t that far off. I figure ACORN won’t step in until the second wave of the elder genocide.”
I had to laugh. “Mory, I’m very conservative and very cynical but I don’t see that there is any reason to suspect that ACORN will be killing seniors.”
“Well my grandfather, Mory Liebowitz said the same thing about Brown Shirts and Jews. Poor guy ended up with a tattoo on his arm before they turned him to ashes. I say you always go with the smart money. And a quick look at the past year will tell you that the winning money has never been on Obama being competent or honest or acting from principle. It might not be fun to look at but if you won’t look you’re in as much denial as that drunken Senator.”
“It’s too bad the Senator might not get any help,” I said.
“People can help him come to realize he needs help,” Mory said. “If all the people of Montana would vote against him he might realize that his sycophants and Obama have been lying to him. He might even realize he needs to make drastic changes. And, also, then my grandma and I won’t have to worry as much about ACORN.”


Senator Baucus has informed the world that he was not drunk. Hell, someone somewhere might even believe him.
If he ever gets a handle on his problem, and someone asks Max how he first realized he had a problem he might say, "When Rick Sanchez assures the world you were sober at a certain time and place and everyone at MSNBC and HuffPo does not get on the bandwagon you can be sure something untoward is going on."

Drunken Idiot Speaking from the Senate Floor


How can anyone respect a body whose leaders act like this with impunity. Is it any surprise that this kind of behavior is coming from the party that so revered Ted Kennedy? As one commenter noted this is how you act when you control billions of dollars of other peoples' money and you think it's OK to spend it on your bar bill. Hopefully whoever runs against this guy will keep this video on TV around the clock for the last two weeks before the election.
This happened at 7 in the morning. The time of day when only the alcoholics are this drunk.
Could it be that Obama broke his promise to allow CSPAN into the meetings about the health care bill because most of the congressmen were drunk most of the time?

Pindar, poet of the victories, fitted names
And legends into verses for the chorus to sing:
Names recalled now only in the poems of Pindar:

O nearly unpronounceable immortals,
In the dash, Oionos was champion:
Oionos, Likmynios's son, who came from Midea.
In wrestling, Echemos won—the name
Of his home city, Tegea, proclaimed to the crowds.
Doryklos of Tiryns won the prize in boxing,
And the record for a four-horse team was set
By Samos from Mantinea, Halirothios's son.

And Pindar, poet of the Olympian and Isthmian
And Pythian games, wrote also of the boundless
And forgetful savannas of time. What is someone?
The chorus sing in a victory ode—What is a nobody?

Creatures of a day, they chant in answer, Creatures
Of a day. So where is the godgiven glory Pindar says
Settles on mortals?—Bright as gold among the substances,
Say the chorus, paramount as water among the elements.

Not in the victory itself, petty or great,
Of rich young Greeks contending in games.
Not in the poetry itself, with its forgotten dances
And Pindar spinning among tiresome or stirring
Myths and genealogies, the chanted names
Of cities and invoked gods and dignitaries—

Striving, O nearly unpronounceable athletes,
To animate the air with dancing feet raising
A golden pollen of dust: a pervasive blur
Of seedlets in the sunlight, whirling—beyond mere
Victory or applause or performance,
As victory is beyond defeat.

The one who threw the javelin furthest
Sang the chorus, chanting Pindar's incantation
Against envy and oblivion, was Phrastor.
And when Nikeus grunting whirled the stone
Into the air and it flew past the marks
Of all the competitors, Nikeus's countrymen
Shouted his name after it, Nikeus,
Nikeus, and the syllables so say the lines Pindar
Composed for the sweating chorus to chant—radiated
For a spell like the silvery mirror of the moon.

This is not new. I like to repost it every couple of months just so we can all remember that Obama has no interest in openness. The list contains many items that used to be routinely made public by candidates that Obama will not open to the public. There are other items that he has kept hidden for no obvious reason.
This list is also reminder of the massive failure of the MSM to behave professionally. It is an indication of why most Americans have little or no problem with Rush calling these clowns the state run media.

Babs Is Too Incompetent To Be Reelected To The Senate

Barbara Boxer should not be reelected because she has just cost California billions of dollars. Her doctrinaire liberal stance has always bothered me as one of her constituents. When her office even answers mail I send her their answer can be invariably be summed up as, “You’re full of it. We have the right answer. So why don’t you just shut up and let the professionals take care of things.” Basically she has never represented the interests of all the citizens of California but just the far out fringe left.
And she went along robotically with Obama’s health care bill no matter how many strange and weird incarnations it migrated through. Because of her blind obedience my Medicare is going to be gutted. If Babs had only feigned outrage at some aspect of the bill like some of the smarter senators she might have been able leverage her faux principles into some benefit for Californians. But she is too true blue a liberal and too stupid to be successful as a senator. I know that statement is pretty insulting. If Roland Burris, Al Franken and Chris Dodd can do it would seem that almost anybody could do that job. But it had to be said. One because I’m angry at how much money Boxer’s amateurishness is going to cost me. And, two, because her incompetence is going to cost millions of Californians thousands of dollars. I’m not demanding that a U.S. senator should have principles. I’ve been around long enough to know that that ship has sailed. But this dingbat owes it to the people who voted for her to know when it is in their best interests for her to act like a principled person.

Let's Pretend We're CBS Reporters and GIVE OBAMA A PASS ON EVERYTHING


Chris Matthews Thinks He Can Marginalize Someone By Calling Them 'White' or 'Angry'


In truth anger is a naturally occurring human emotion that arises in response to injustice or a perceived threat to one's existence or threat to one's most basic needs. It is a useful part of self-defense and helps provide more energy for reacting to threats.
I am always facinated by all of the lefties' accusations that the Tea Party Movement is motivated by anger at the election of a black man. For one thing I bet there are many at the Tea Parties who voted for Obama and I imagine many of them are angry about being lied to. I have seen video clips of many speakers at Tea Parties and never once heard a one of them speak about race. So, for Matthews and the other lying liberals to be correct, there must be a lot of secret meetings going on somewhere where the true agenda is discussed. But I have no reason to believe that there are secret meetings. And I see no reason to hope that Matthews and his lying friends will ever speak the truth.
Remember it was a Republican who first spoke about judging people by the content of their character rather than by the color of their skin. The 'progressives' seem dead set against that movement forward in our civic life.

Obama's History of Bipartisanship

Obama has NO history of bipartisanship. He had no history of any bipartisanship when he promised to govern in a bipartisan manner. And he has done nothing to keep that promise. He thought saying that would help him get elected so he said it without the least intention of keeping the promise. He has been given a complete pass on this by the MSM. The same 'free' press that had not a word of criticism of his bald faced lie that he would run a publicly funded campaign. All of this and much else cause me to have no problem with Rush Limbaugh calling them the state sponsored media. This short video clip is from a show broadcast not long before the end of the primary season of 2008. The man doing most of the talking is a congressman from Georgia.

I know that perverts must rest easier now that Jennings has some power. But I have to wonder if he has done anything to make schools safer Since he is free of outside over sight or any accountability we might never know any more than that he cashes his paycheck.

"Messiah" Every Valley Shall Be Exalted


Alan Grayson Flunked Democracy 101


Alan Grayson flunked Democracy 101. The man is offensive to the American spirit. There is a scene in this YouTube video in which he physically attacks a man for filming him while he walks down a public street. This sums him up: he has no respect for the law and he has no respect for other people. He feels he can do as he pleases and to Hell with the rights of others. And he is loved by the base of the Democrat party: go figure.
I saw this rube as a minor irritant at the far edge of my world until he demanded that the Department of Justice jail a citizen who criticized him on the internet. That was too much for me. I recognize that he thrives on negative attention. But his special kind of sliminess is best combated with massive amounts of sunlight.
He was one of the congressman who balked at listening to input from his constituents at a town hall meeting. He packed the hall so that very few critical voices were allowed in. The same YouTube video documents this anti-democratic stunt by this congressman who apparently is really nuts.
Grayson has no respect for others, feels no obligation to listen to the legitimate concerns of the people he claims to represent, is very willing to physically bully a critic, is not even embarrassed to publically attack freedom of expression. He has flunked Democracy 101 and is not fit to serve in congress.
There is a growth in this anti-democratic spirit in Washington, D. C. Obama has made working around congressional oversight into an art form by taking the rarely used czar position and creating a near endless number of them living and working outside the normal chains of responsibility and oversight that are the life blood of representative government. He has also flunked Democracy 101. As if his flourishing under the Chicago Way were not proof enough.
The Congress has descended into a strange authoritarian underworld by moving the creation of legislation behind closed doors. For years they have been allowing lobbyists and special interests to do the actual writing of the legislation. But to go the extra step of not allowing all members to see the legislation long enough before a vote to make informed choices is proof of their anti-democratic leanings. And hiding the process from the public is unforgiveable. We will be better off if none of this crew of back stabbers ever returns to Washington.
The buying and selling of votes in the Senate cannot be very new but the present lot have lost all shame and do it right out in public. It is as if they they have a deep commitment to causing nausea and widespread distrust in government. Do they think that Americans will find the whole thing so repellant that they will just return to ignoring the government and leave it to the slimebags? I think they might be surprised at what all of this will lead to. The whole Senate has been unwilling to follow its constitutionally mandated duty to properly police itself. They might get a few points for chutzpah but the whole Senate gets a failing grade in Democracy 101. Maybe the whole bunch of them could work for Hugo Chavez or the Iranian secret service since they have the requisite mind set. They sure do not have the attitudes and habits required for democratic government.

Russian IEA claims CRU tampered with Climate Data – Cherrypicked Warmest Stations

A piece at Watts Up With That? contends that weather station data from Russia has been cherrypicked and manipulated by the CRU at East Anglia. Things are not improving for the warmists' case. Below are a few relevant quotes from the piece

Russian papers are reporting that the Russian surface station data was sorted by CRU to use the highest warming stations only.


Controversy arose after various allegations were made including that climate scientists colluded to withhold scientific evidence and manipulated data to make the case for global warming appear stronger than it is.

Climategate has already affected Russia. On Tuesday, the Moscow-based Institute of Economic Analysis (IEA) issued a report claiming that the Hadley Center for Climate Change based at the headquarters of the British Meteorological Office in Exeter (Devon, England) had probably tampered with Russian-climate data.

The IEA believes that Russian meteorological-station data did not substantiate the anthropogenic global-warming theory.

Analysts say Russian meteorological stations cover most of the country’s territory, and that the Hadley Center had used data submitted by only 25% of such stations in its reports.

Over 40% of Russian territory was not included in global-temperature calculations for some other reasons, rather than the lack of meteorological stations and observations.

The data of stations located in areas not listed in the Hadley Climate Research Unit Temperature UK (HadCRUT) survey often does not show any substantial warming in the late 20th century and the early 21st century.

The HadCRUT database includes specific stations providing incomplete data and highlighting the global-warming process, rather than stations facilitating uninterrupted observations.

On the whole, climatologists use the incomplete findings of meteorological stations far more often than those providing complete observations.

IEA analysts say climatologists use the data of stations located in large populated centers that are influenced by the urban-warming effect more frequently than the correct data of remote stations.

The scale of global warming was exaggerated due to temperature distortions for Russia accounting for 12.5% of the world’s land mass. The IEA said it was necessary to recalculate all global-temperature data in order to assess the scale of such exaggeration.

Global-temperature data will have to be modified if similar climate-date procedures have been used from other national data because the calculations used by COP15 analysts, including financial calculations, are based on HadCRUT research.


This is a very powerful accusation, which if true could change much about the climate science debate. Many papers are based on this dataset which has the highest trend of the major ground datasets.

A recent breakthrough in the social sciences was the discovery of the Doppler-douche Effect. It has been attacked by reporters, news commentators and other Democrats as excessively inexact and subjective. But its authors feel that Democrats lack the perspective to properly understand and test this basic natural law.

It can be best summarized thus:

As he approaches a conservative, Obama appears even more douche-like than a normal person. But as he recedes there is a palpable sense of relief coupled with a rejuvenation of the belief that life has meaning and that it might not remain too costly and legally burdensome to hire American citizens.

A related prediction from the social sciences states there is a 75% probably that Algore will have almost no hair on the top of his head within 5 to 15 years.

Lord Monckton Talks to Some Irrational and Poorly Informed Youths Gathering in Copenhagen

I love this guy. His somewhat bulgy eyes remind me of William F. Buckley, Jr.

A more and more common argument in favor of man made global warming: 'Shut up or I'll set the thugs on you." We now have green brown shirts. Not exactly the response of people that feel they can prevail in a free and honest discussion.

Good News / Bad News

The bad news is that your congressman does not represent you. Not many denizens of the right blogosphere will see this as a news flash. But I thought I’d flesh it out with some facts. reports that in 2008 14,808 lobbyists gave 3.3 billion dollars to members of congress. Thus far in 2009 13,426 lobbyists have given 2.5 billion to members of congress. Victorian Brits used to say, “You must do the queen’s bidding if you take the queen’s pence.”
Earlier this week the New York Times ran a story about lobbyists paying for congressional travel and junkets, Here are a few relevant paragraphs:

“While lobbyists are not supposed to pay for a lawmaker’s travel, for example, Mr. Sensenbrenner’s $14,708 trip to Liechtenstein and Germany in 2009 was organized by a nonprofit group whose president is a lobbyist. It was underwritten by European companies that, in many cases, lobby in the United States.

“The rules are filled with odd contradictions. Lobbyists themselves are not allowed to pay for trips, but their corporate clients can. And lobbyists are permitted to give huge sums to nonprofit groups that can sponsor travel. They can also travel to destinations and meet the lawmakers once they get there, though they cannot go on the same plane.

“The companies finance much of this travel indirectly, getting around the spirit of the rules by giving money to nonprofits, some of which seem to exist largely to sponsor trips. In fact, the rules may have had the unexpected effect of obscuring who is actually paying for a lawmaker’s junket.

“Many of the trips are sponsored by organizations with ideological and policy agendas, rather than commercial interests. Most of those rely, at least in part, on corporate financing to underwrite trips for lawmakers.

“Don Bonker, is a Washington lobbyist, whose firm, APCO Worldwide, has served as a registered agent for the German government.

“. . . and that the trips had been approved beforehand by the House ethics staff.”

I hope my readers caught the funny part where the Times writer referred to the spirit of the law being gotten around. He’s smart enough to write for the NYT but can’t see the obvious spirit of the law that is smack in front of his face. The spirit of the law is to allow members of congress to take large value gifts from lobbyists while having a weak fig leaf of a law to try to hide behind. Basically the spirit of the law is the opposite of what the Times writer implies. But the owners and advertisers of the NYT are the pimps and prostitutes that the writer is attempting to cover for.
The good news is that, even though your congressman could not care less about your interests when legislating, if you have enough money you can own a member of congress, They are up for sale. Just come up with their price and you can own one or more. This is America and if you get lucky and somehow become a multimultimillionaire you too can participate in the miracle of cash enhanced representative government. And you can fly your very own congressman to Liechtenstein and proudly display him for your family and friends.

Tina Brown: Destroyer of American Culture


The subject of this clip is Sarah Palin. But I'm going to get some feelings about Tina Brown off my chest
Before Brown took over the New Yorker it was a weekly treasure. It was full of long, well written articles about a wondrous variety of subjects. And they always had short fiction by good writers from all over the world. I would rather it had died than it suffer what she and her heirs subjected it to. Tina Brown took the great American institution and nearly turned it into People Magazine. Those who followed her have made it a mouthpiece for the DNC that on occasion has good writing inside.
The woman has little to offer as a talking head. She's mealy mouthed. It appears she has never thought about the subject under discussion, so, if someone else makes the least bit of sense she can't keep herself from agreeing and has no come back. But she is probably just no good at thinking on her feet.

A Science Reporter Who Doesn't Know From Science

As usual, if you seek science ignorance go to MSNBC.

The 'science' reporter who looks like a high school girl says about the East Anglia tricksters that they have been, "trying for decades to get some traction on the global warming science and they really can't afford to have much detracting science get out." In other words they have an agenda. The ONLY true agenda of science is to ascertain the facts and find the intellectual framework that best explains the facts. If there are facts that a partisan of one theory can't afford to have made public it just means that the theory needs to be changed. If she can't understand that basic truth about the scientific method and if she feels compelled to find rationalizations for anti-scientific behavior she should change to covering a field she understands.
