Sanger = Jefferson

In a recent appearance at the Planned Parenthood Convention, Hillary Clinton received the Margaret Sanger Award for umm, supporting abortion? In her remarks and in subsequent defense of those remarks, she compared Sanger to Thomas Jefferson . Now for those of you that don't know, Sanger was the founder of Planned Parenthood and aggressively pushed "eugenics," the same policy that the Nazis used to "cull the herd" in Europe. Sanger was particularly worried about birth rates among the African American population and ensured that the clinics she championed were set up in predominately black neighborhoods. Let's see, Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence and founded the University of Virginia...yes he had slaves, like all landed people of his era, but I am having a hard time seeing the parallel. Here's a nice photo of Sanger at a community organizer event...oops, I meant the KKK - note well my northern friends, this took place in New Jersey!

I particularly like the little Nazi salutes. Ever see images of Jefferson with all the folks around him raising their right arms stiffly at 45 degree angles? While I know you folks on the left are having a grand time dancing on our Constitution, must you continue to trash great men as well?

Why I am Worried...

What do you call someone who campaigns on the notion that the sitting President is irresponsible in piling up budget deficits "as far as the eye can see," who then produces a budget that makes a graph look like one of those Soviet era posters?
You know the kind - tank factories making more and more tanks and larger ones too!

Well, the word that comes to mind for me is "liar." There is no rhyme or reason for this in rational economics. It only makes sense if there is an ideology being fulfilled. We have studied the soup of communism and anti-Americanism that BHO was raised in. Perhaps he is just fulfilling his mission?

Whew, it took me awhile to realize this was fake! The UN...almost as useful as old mayonnaise.

A Chilling Effect on U.S. Counterterrorism

You need to read this analysis on this link: STRATFOR

Now, if you think that this is bad, just wait till BHO and his merry band of America haters start releasing photos of U.S. Military personnel...that we were PROSECUTING!

We are methodically destroying the capacity of our nation to wage war against an enemy that doesn't give a flying c&%p about Obama's popularity ratings. They want us dead people...converting to their sick "religion" would mean we get a cut on the virgins. Dead, much better.

Feel the Love!

Ya' gotta love a man who smiles when he talks about killing people with anthrax! No doubt BHO could woo this man over to the Rodney "let's all just get along" King side of the fence.

Do you really think we can talk to these savages?

Muslim Demographics

This is similar to the message of "America Alone" by Mark Steyn...scary stuff.

Actually, to call these people Huns is to do disservice to the Huns. These people are savages. And yet, the anointed one and his allies believe that by telling them we will play nice and no one will get hurt that they are going to miraculously put down their swords and pistoles and stop trying to enforce a brutal pre-medieval legal system? C'mon libs, grow a pair! This isn't to say we need to stoop to their level, but walking into the valley of death completely unarmed, with these cavemen at the ready is suicide.

Any questions?

Somebody's Not Paying the 'Prompter...

POTUS got ahead of TOTUS...or was TOTUS playing with POTUS in an effort to negotiate still a better deal having scored the Mac's as traveling companions? Hard to say:

Aside from the humor though, I am getting a little sick of the "culture of science." The implication is that we lived in some kind of dark ages with no progress of any kind until the enlightened one came to walk among us. Case in point, the current threat of a pandemic of Swine Flu is muted because of...err, dare I speak his name? George W. Bush. The Bush folks had a comprehensive plan put in place. All BHO has to do is pull it off the shelf and then blame Bush for being such a backward Bible thumping hillbilly that it took the Anointed One to find it on the shelf! Read the facts here.

Lou Dobbs: Amnesty Bill Provisions

A lot of my "anonymous" posters like to say that all I watch is Fox---well, here's CNN, a good, wholesome channel.

Canada's Turn in the Tank

The Canadians haven't gotten the memo - in the world according to O, we "keep our friends close and our enemies closer." So we've insulted the Brits, the Israelis, the it's Canada's turn. This from the Canadian press:

Can someone please tell us how U. S. Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano got her job? She appears to be about as knowledgeable about border issues as a late-night radio call-in yahoo.
Well, she basically accused the Canadians of letting the 9/11 hijackers in...eegad! You can read the rest of the article here.

Memo to Janet - how about sending those crazy ex-military terrorists up to the Canadian border to chase the Canooks?

More incompetency on parade!

Just Wild: The American Form of Government

I posted this on Red State Rumblings some time ago - given some of the comments I have received lately on other posts over here, I thought it would be good to help educate our friends on the left. The bottom line is the directions of left or right, GOP or DEM are frankly meaningless. The central philosophical difference is are you in favor of the state controlling your life or do you favor freedom? Once you answer that question for yourself, your world view will shape itself around it. For me, I go with the freedom, limited government package...for some of my anonymous commenters they apparently wish to surrender all to the cult of Obama and be led forward like sheep. That's OK, just recognize it for what it is.

Articles 53 and 57

Shame that Barry's charm and Flip Wilson bump skills couldn't convince the Venezuelan coca-chewing dictator to sign on to the little bitty statement (66 pages) that is being called the "Declaration of the Summit of the Americas." What could possibly be bothering Hugo? Well, he and his pal, Danny Ortega, who spent the better part of an hour spewing venom on the United States don't like the following two articles in the declaration:

53. We reaffirm our commitment to the defense, protection and promotion of human rights and to the independence and strengthening of the Inter-American System of Human Rights.

57. We recognise the important role of the OAS in the peaceful resolution of our differences and in support of the objectives of the Inter-American Democratic Charter. We commit to improve the capacity of the OAS in its efforts to assist in enhancing peace and the democratic, social and economic stability of our region.

Hmm, "promotion of human rights," and "peaceful resolution" must be phrases that are anethma to these thugs. That Barry wants to sweeten up to them is only further evidence that he is either a) frightfully naive or b) that he agrees with their philosophy. I opt for c) he is both.

This was a shameful display by our President. Never once speaking out to defend the principles of freedom and democracy that are the real keys to success. Last week he had Jefferson spinning in his grave...this week, Monroe and Madison take a spin.

Obama Orders Budget Cuts

The Great One has assembled his troops and ordered "budget cuts" of $100 million. Outstanding! This ranks right up there with his stunning Naval victory over the combined forces of three's a great graphic from Heritage's John Fleming to put it in perspective:

Happy Anniversary Harry!

One of those great, patriotic moments when someone spoke out against the President...shame that's not allowed anymore!

And I thought only the Right had Religious Nuts...

Apparently there is an Episcopal woman priest who says abortion is a blessing. Whoa - that's a show stopper - a blessing? Here's more of what the Reverend Katherine Ragsdale had to say:

When a woman finds that the fetus she is carrying has anomalies incompatible with life, that it will not live and that she requires an abortion – often a late-term abortion – to protect her life, her health, or her fertility, it is the shattering of her hopes and dreams for that pregnancy that is the tragedy; the abortion is a blessing.

When a woman wants a child but can’t afford one because she hasn’t the education necessary for a sustainable job, or access to health care, or day care, or adequate food, it is the abysmal priorities of our nation, the lack of social supports, the absence of justice that are the tragedies; the abortion is a blessing.

And when a woman becomes pregnant within a loving, supportive, respectful relationship; has every option open to her; decides she does not wish to bear a child; and has access to a safe, affordable abortion – there is not a tragedy in sight -- only blessing. The ability to enjoy God’s good gift of sexuality without compromising one’s education, life’s work, or ability to put to use God’s gifts and call is simply blessing.

These are the two things I want you, please, to remember – abortion is a blessing and our work is not done. Let me hear you say it: abortion is a blessing and our work is not done. Abortion is a blessing and our work is not done. Abortion is a blessing and our work is not done.

If you have the stomach for it, here's the rest of the article over at a NARAL website.

36 Hours

Although I praised President Obama in an earlier post for allowing deadly force in the engagement with the Somali pirates...the "Great Naval Victory," according to the Tennessean, I was a little suspicious about the chain of events. Word is now leaking out about what really happened. Bottom line is Obama withheld the use of deadly force under strict rules of engagement that prevented the SEALs from deploying and from executing their deadly mission.

What was bothering me was the couple of attempts that Captain Phillips made to jump overboard...I kept wondering if he was trying to give someone a clear shot. Looks like I might have been right. Either way, here's the inside scoop over at World Net Daily.

This is the same kind of hesitation and micro-management we saw under the Carter administration. It leads to events like this:

A Pediment

So a pediment becomes an impediment to Barry O and his gang of non-Christian nationers. The image above is the pediment in Gaston Hall at Georgetown University, down the street from ye old White House. Normally, that little feller reads "IHS" - an ancient monogram for Jesus Christ. But I guess the good Jesuits of Georgetown are trying to wrest the "most politically correct Catholic institution" mantle from Notre Dame. Apparently, the "White House" asked that all images of Christ, Crucifixes, names etc. be expunged from the podium or any place where they might intrude on a Barry O camera angle:

Georgetown University says it covered over the monogram “IHS”–symbolizing the name of Jesus Christ—because it was inscribed on a pediment on the stage where President Obama spoke at the university on Tuesday and the White House had asked Georgetown to cover up all signs and symbols there.

As of Wednesday afternoon, the “IHS” monogram that had previously adorned the stage at Georgetown’s Gaston Hall was still covered up–when the pediment where it had appeared was photographed by

“In coordinating the logistical arrangements for yesterday’s event, Georgetown honored the White House staff’s request to cover all of the Georgetown University signage and symbols behind Gaston Hall stage,” Julie Green Bataille, associate vice president for communications at Georgetown, told

Come on Georgetown - "Hoya Saxa!" You too, Notre Dame, are you so dazzled by the light of "the one" that you are willing to stuff your principles in a box and sit on them?

As goofy as the Georgetown folks acted in this matter, what's the flippin' deal? Why is Barry so afraid to use the word "Jesus" in a speech? Why is he terrified of any symbology associated with the Christian faith? This is not to go down the "that's kuz he rally is a Muzzlim" route...but clearly he is so concerned with being "aChristian" (umm, think asexual) that you can only conclude it is for the benefit of the Muslim press. So there's a good formula - trample the history and institutions of your own country in the hopes of making symbolic gains among people that are sworn to hate us. Smart, Barry, really smart.

Sweden - an Islamist State?

Missile Defense

Obama wants to talk to the bad guys and slash our defense this and think real hard about the choices.

Ahhh, Taxes

Great video to watch as you prepare your taxes...also fits well with the 10th Amendment argument being made in a number of states.

God Bless Texas!

I am a Texan by birth, and I am DAMNED proud of this stand. The Tenth Amendment is painfully clear:

"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are preserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

Good Call, Mr. President

The Navy S.E.A.L.s rescued the captain of the Maersk Alabama today in an operation that was exactly what they are trained to do. President Obama made the right call by acknowledging that this was a military matter and not a law-enforcement problem. Kudos to Obama for doing the right thing. He owes a debt of gratitude to Mr. Bush for leaving him a military that is extraordinarily capable...let us pray that Mr. Obama does the same for his successor.

There are two large issues at stake here. First, piracy in international waters IS a military matter. It must be met with overwhelming force and destroyed. Mackubin Thomas Owens had an excellent piece in yesterday's Wall Street Journal on this subject. It goes back to Roman times and the distinction between "bellum" and "guerra" - the former is war between legitimate states, the latter war on brigands, outlaws, pirtates - can we say "terrorists?" These people do not deserve the courtesy of legal proceedings - they deserve the hangman's noose.

The second point that most reports are missing is the proper definition of who these people are - they are Muslim Extremists! These aren't modern day versions of Blackbeard, they are Islamic terrorists - they are doing on the high seas what their brethren are doing on the land in Iraq, the Middle East, Afghanistan, Indonesia etc. etc. For this reason, Obama is wrong to say we are not at war with Islam...we are at war with Islamic extremism and the pressure and blame needs to be put squarely on the heads of those who support these "latrunculi," the Saudis, the Iranians and all Islamic clergy and people who do not openly condemn these acts and work to change their religion from within.

Is there no shame?

Why not appoint a Palestinian to be the Ambassador to Israel while you are at it? Really, sending someone that is pro-abortion to be the Ambassador to the Vatican is insulting. Thank goodness the Holy Father has the cojones to tell Barry O to stick it.

The Liberal's Burden

(Obama and the World)

*With humble thanks to Rudyard Kipling's masterpiece "Take up the White Man's Burden."

Take up the liberal's burden-
Send forth the leftist screed
Go bind your sons to taxes
To serve your programs' need;
To wait in heavy harness
On Kos-crazed folk and wild-
Your new constituent voters
Half-devil but full child.

Take up the liberal's burden-
Ignore the other side,
Go hide the threat of terror
And burn American pride;
In 'prompted speech and town hall
A thousand times made plain,
To seek your re-election
And smother capitalism's gain.

Take up the liberal's burden-
The savage wars of change
Fill full the unions' coffers
The Founders' goal rearrange;
And when the end is nearest
The Marxism you have sought,
Watch fact and harsh reality
Bring all your "hope" to nought.

Take up the liberal's burden-
Ignore the rule of law
And pass your bloated budgets
While claiming to stop the thaw.
The rules ye shall have broken
The Constitution you shall tread
Go blow up the sickly deficits
And put the blame on Bush's head.

Take up the liberal's burden-
And reap your old reward:
The money dumped on ACORN
While frightening the bid'ness Boards.
The cry of aborted children
Who face the certain night,
And generations now in bondage
Because to tax, you have the right.

Take up the liberal's burden-
Ye dare not stoop to less-
But bow low to Saudi tyrants
And apologize to the rest.
But by every vote and order
By all ye leave or do
The silent American people
Shall weigh the truth against you.

Take up the liberal's burden-
Get on with changing names
No "terror" nor "enemy combatant"
Shall grace the newsprint's page;
Come now no need of manhood
Or all those warring years
Why everyone will love us now!
While Patriots will shed tears.

Reuben James is Still Alive!

News this morning was that some 350+ miles out to sea, Somali pirates had seized a U. S. Flag ship - 20 U.S. Citizens aboard. As of this writing, the ship, the Maersk Alabama, similar to the one pictured here, is back under control of the crew. The pirates have a hostage and we have a pirate is the current situation.

Thank God there is still some testosterone left in our metrosexual nation, that is being represented on his apology tour by the highest elected metro in the land. The spirit of Reuben James, the young boatswain's mate who stepped in front of a Barbary Pirate's scimitar to protect his Captain, Commodore Stephen Decatur!Now, the question is will Barry O behave like Mr. Jefferson and send the U.S. Navy to rid the seas of this scourge? We know, and I'll bet that crew knew, that if they had been taken hostage, Barry would have behaved like Jimmuh Carter and begged forgiveness for the arrogance of having motorized cargo ships plying the waters off their coasts.

Let's pray for the safe return of the remaining hostage and hoist a GIANT "Bravo Zulu" - job well done - to the crew of the Maersk Alabama!

The Obamagical Mystery Tour

Excellent summary of the Obamagical Mystery Tour through Europe over at the WSJ this morning. Of course, the New York Times Clone Press is saying that it was a smashing success. But the reality is, despite having 12 teleprompters in tow, Big O fell with a thud in Europe. George Friedman's Stratfor group has a good summary as well - far from the fawning press, rational minds observe that:

1. The 5,000 European troop commitment to Afghanistan only lasts till August - the 21,000 we are committing will be there indefinitely.
2. The tie our wrists together and commit financial hari kiri didn't happen either - I never thought I would say this, but thank God for the Germans.
3. On a protocol and politeness track, Barry O was a bomb - he insulted the British (United Kingdon not England, no bowing to Saudis, the United States is not a Christian nation, yada,yada,yada) - if George W. had done half of this, he would have been excoriated in the press.
4. Dragging the United States through the mud on an apology tour is what point in time will members of the left take pride in this nation? As one wag put it the other day, we liberated the western half of Europe in 1945 and the eastern half in 1989. To whom do we owe an apology??!!

All in all, it is a sad day for the United States. A proud nation laid low by the likes of this amatuer...shame, shame.

Beware of Real Estate Agents

Great column from Dan Henninger in the Wall Street Journal this morning. It is a testament to the power of hype:

Beware of real-estate salesmen.

The housing bubble that floated into view in 2007 is turning into the blob that ate the world. Real-estate mortgages and their derivative securities are a significant problem. That discrete problem, however, has been pumped up to an historic "crisis of capitalism."

Capitalism didn't tank the U.S. economy. Overbuilt housing did. Overbuilt housing tanked the economies of the U.K. and Ireland and Spain. If little else, we've learned that artificially cheap housing sets loose limitless moral hazard.

He's ABSOLUTELY right - "capitalism did not tank the U.S. economy." Shout that from the rooftops folks because that is the rap that Obama and the socialist thugs are using to take away your freedom. I would add my two cents to Dan's column to say that real estate agents and folks like Barnie Frank and Chris Dodd who insisted that cheap mortgages be made available were the root cause. Either way, it's a good here and do it now!
