THIS MACHINE KILLS LEFTISTS
Yesterday, Bob Schieffer asked partisan hack/United States Senator Pat Leahy whether he would seek to subpoena Cheney et al to testify before these truth and reconciliation committees that the brownshirts are demanding —and Leahy said no. Huh? Right there at the very end of his remarks in the most matter of fact way. It was rewindable.
Isn’t the whole point of a show trial to make the defeated party or enemy of the (present) state squirm for the cameras and the bloodlust of the New Totalitarians? I guess Leahy figures he can achieve much of what he wants in political and propaganda terms whether the former Vice President is there in the flesh to defend himself or not.
But if demanding accountability —the biggest whore among words ever, it turns out— is so terribly important, then how can Leahy and these other politicizers of national security now pull their punches thrown at Cheney? How could they fail —after making it their stock in trade for years— to demand Donald Rumsfeld’s head in the most public forum possible? If there were crimes committed, it would be a moral failure of the Democratic Party —would it not?— if they did not use the power they now have to deliver justice to their enemies.
You know, the enemies that succeeded in keeping our country safe from a further terrorist attack for more than seven years.
Always remember: when a Democrat speaks out against the so-called torture perpetrated at the behest of the Bush Administration, he is demanding that mass murderers themselves be protected against the fear of death. In the context of historical fact, that is exactly what Democrats are doing. They are upset because Khalid Sheik Mohammed was caused to fear for his life! We made the man who plotted to murder thousands of Americans believe he was being drowned! That is the state of the post-American mind: we must defend our enemies against ourselves in the interest of the world’s “good will.”
Why are all these people in Big Media and the commentariat going on and on about Nancy Pelosi’s knowledge of enhanced interrogations when it was reported years ago that she knew about it?! This is news?
And as her awareness of these practices is an historical fact that cannot be disputed through ad hominemism or stereotyping or obfuscation or distraction, it must be that she had a reaction to this knowledge. That would be the next thing in this sequence. What did Pelosi do about it? Nothing: she must have thought the interrogation techniques were acceptable because they did not move her morally to protest them or otherwise raise a fuss. That matters, right? She gets to be included in the list of people to be raked over the coals about it —if rake we must, I say.
Anyway, if these Leftist truth and reconciliation committees are going to put on their little show trials to keep the nerds and political junkies from noticing the incipient Socialism, then let us ignore the spectacle. Let us real Americans make sure that everybody knows the facts. Getting the facts out there is going to be coming ever harder to accomplish in such a propagandized atmosphere. But if these lame accusations and all the moral hypocrisy are now the order of the day, then let’s make sure that all the characters get assassinated.
Obama dismisses the idea that his friendly exchanges with Hugo Chavez are endangering anything. But that’s because he’s a narcissistic moron who doesn’t understand that he does not own the Presidency of the United States, but is its caretaker. Obama thinks it’s all about him, but it’s not. He is a fool to lend the prestige of the American Presidency to absurd photo-ops with idiot socialists.
Of course, at this rate, Obama could take such a photo-op by himself and the result would be identical.
I was fascinated by Larry Summers’ remarks on Meet the Press this morning. Well, more accurately, I was fascinated by how he managed to not only keep his ass in the air for that long, but also by how he kept a coat and tie around it without any discernible slippage. David Gregory, quoting Dick Armey on the issue of the Tea Parties thrown this past week, had the following exchange with Summers:
“Armey said the real target of the protestors’ ire is not the current tax rate but the much higher one that will be needed to pay for trillions of dollars in financial-sector bailouts; the stimulus package…and Obama’s ambitious health-care and education initiatives, which are projected to raise the debt by trillions of dollars more. `There’s no way he can do the spending he does and cut taxes for most people.’” Does he have that wrong?
DR. SUMMERS: I think he does. I think he does, David, and, you know, I think the record speaks for itself. What the president’s proposed is a tax cut for 95 percent of all Americans. You know, I don’t know that much about politics, but I’ve been surprised by these TEA parties a bit. The president is the one who’s proposing cutting taxes on virtually all Americans, so I’m not sure who these TEA parties see as being King George.
Summers, like any of the other hacks who are working with Obama to institute socialism in America, is simply being obtuse. It doesn’t matter what the marginal tax rate is today or what our payroll taxes are today or what the tax burdens on a gallon of gasoline are today. Rather, it matters what they will be in a year or two years’ time when all of this madhouse spending that the Democrats are doing today will require major tax hikes. What these fucking criminals are doing is promising so much stuff now that there will be no choice but to increase taxes later —with them hiding behind more and more bullshit about what must be done to deliver us from the Great Recession, even if it’s their own policies and programs that are prolonging or worsening the economic problems.
These elitist hacks are not in any doubt about what the Tea Party movement means, but they’d rather pretend otherwise.
Let them pretend to the last.
I’ve just returned home from a few hours in the company of thousands of like-minded citizens and strangers, walking with them from the south steps of the Texas State Capitol down to Auditorium Shores on Lady Bird Lake and back again. I’m no good with guessing crowd sizes, but it cannot have been fewer (”Fewer”? They still use “fewer”?) than 3,000. If someone said 4,500, I’d believe that, too. Hundreds of amazing signs, protest babes, and other memorable sights. We owned the western (southbound) half of Congress Avenue from the Capitol snaking down to the South First Street Bridge and thence to the lake.
Most enjoyable. It is reinvigorating to see so many people want to express themselves —especially in denunciation of sacks of dung like Nancy Pelosi and Janet Napolitano.
Long Live Texas! Long Live the Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution! (And I wish here to pay my compliments to our state’s governor, who knows how to read them tea leaves prettier than most.)
What the hell was Hillary Rodham Clinton laughing about the other day when responding to the all-important “scourge of piracy” question? Was she startled by deja vu, tripping over some memory of herself presenting a book report on the Barbary pirates to her 7th grade history class? Because channelling that shit is what’s required of a Secretary of State when she has absolutely nothing to say about pirates.
I mean —pirates?! WTF?! I hear that even the none-too-swiftboater John Kerry is now calling for Congressional hearings on piracy. Is that a joke? No, it’s not.
I don’t know how the pirate problem came to be, but it seems to be a fast favorite with the ridiculous shithooks who choose what stories Americans will be seeing on their TVs. It’s like a baby crisis with training wheels that Obama can get into and show what a suave goddamned guy he is. He’ll grab them Somali
terrorists pirates up and give them a stern talking to, I’m sure. Don’t they know that he’s their President, too, and that we’re very sorry about them hating us and how about a bailout, fellas? Is this way easier than the other ways to redistribute the wealth? Maybe, uh, we can work out some deal, y’know…Maybe steer some of that action ACORN’s way?
Community organizing on the high seas, me hearties! The pirates —they’re in love!
Any one gaffe or mistake Obama makes isn’t evidence in itself of much at all. But as he makes so many of them and to such egregious degrees, it is left to us to choose: either he is doing these things deliberately to provoke his enemies and thereby divide and distract them (there go two of Obama’s favorite accusations from the campaign) or he is genuinely ignorant of what constitutes an actual American.
Oh, hell! Those things aren’t mutually exclusive. It’s both!
The multiple snubs of the British. The spinelessness before the King of Saudi Arabia. The near-simultaneity of his anti-nuke gibberish with the launch of a long-range North Korean missile. And then the overtures to Iran met with news of many more new centrifuges. Is all of this some deliberate show of incompetence intended to sucker us and the world into underestimating him?
Well, the huge strides towards a Socialist system that he and his cronies have made are meant to impoverish this country and to reduce it to something unexceptional and bound over to a permanent posture of weakness before the other nations of the Earth.
That’s a loss to the progress of mankind. And this fucking bastard knows it, too. It’s why Obama lives: to wield the power to destroy the last, best hope of Earth for his own egotistical desires.
America has been embarrassed in the most literal sense. We have been exposed as a culture that demography and ideology ha[ve] strangled. Barack Hussein Obama is an instrument of that embarrassment. He is the avatar of post-Americanism. He is the reminder to this civilization that we, too, are mortal.
Any improvements in the economic numbers of the past two weeks are exclusively a function of the political resistance to Obama’s outrageous budget plans. The market now detects that these idiots are coming to their senses, so the startling news of some nerve at last is rewarding the investors with the required confidence to start advancing credit.
This means that the any attempt to spin these improvements as a function of the stimulus money is crap and deserves to be knocked down.
The White House is denying this afternoon that Barack Obama bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia last week. Jesus! How stupid can they be? They are now inviting the public to question their sanity. They will not like the verdict.
As I explained to certain of you degenerate post-American losers last year, Obama has less of a claim on Christianity than Islam. By far. (His time in Jeremiah Wright’s church was a political act of no spiritual quality whatsoever.) He was, in fact, born to a Muslim father and raised as a Muslim by another Muslim man for most of his formative years. And that was okay with everybody on the way to his installment because it was a package deal that self-loathing post-Americans were ordering: voting for the Immaculate Step-Brother would absolve us of all our racist and imperial and Blonde Jesus-loving sins. No one could ever quite say how the mechanics of that would work, but they meant it. By the millions. And I do get that. But I still hate it. And I won’t be satisfied until certain of you who voted for Barack Hussein Obama are made to squeal in regret. Because there are so many lies he’s told and so many lies he’s told that you’ve ignored that it becomes a deathwatch on your integrity to reckon up all the excuses and rationalizations you’ve made to protect your pathetic little emotional investments in this man. It’s wall-to-wall partisan whoredom. It’s post-American treachery.
Well, what finally can be believed of this ultimate confidence man? Will you allow him now to tell you even what you have seen with your own eyes? Go to the video. That wasn’t him stooping to conquer, see. That was him in abject obeisance to the Great Custodian of the Shrines. It was done as a signal to the rest of the Mohammedans that the change they had hoped for was here at last. It made me sick to see it and it makes me sicker still to see him deny it. Let him pay a heavy political price for this latest and most outrageous lie.
