Remember all of those anti-war and anti-Bush Democrats from just two years ago? Remember all of their treasonous accusatons of war crimes and mortal deceit? Well, where are they now while their own beloved President, conceived in messianism and cultural redemption, routinely wages war on Pakistan with drones and CIA operations of every kind —just like that terrible braggart from Texas? These hippie users are mostly silent. And because they are they are shown for what they were under the previous Administration, which was a bunch of liars denouncing the War for Iraq and the War against Islamofascism, in general, for purely partisan reasons and not because they were genuinely opposed. What else would explain their silence now if not their common partisanship with this President?
And go get a sense of where the Chosen One has been on the issue of the “good war” in Afghanistan. He has no heart for it and everyone knows that now, thanks to his own authorization of Bob Woodward to do his latest leaky treatment of the Presidency.
Aren’t the nationalist elements in Pakistan eventually going to tire of this un-secret war Obama is prosecuting on their land and do something to retaliate? Don’t the Democrats know that their great savior is expanding the war? Where are all of those warnings and useless pop-psychologizing that the hippies used to issue that every word to come out of Bushitler’s mouth was just giving the jihadis more reason to come at us? Are those uselss old anti-war bromides no longer valid?
Watch Pakistan carefully. Obama has had his eye on that country for a long time now. He’d best make sure he knows what to do next if he takes the tiger by the tail.
I just watched a very strange interview between Rachel Maddow and Dick Holbrooke on MSNBC. One imagines that Holbrooke was sent there to reassure the few godforsaken hippie hypocrites who still watch that wretched network that Obama isn’t actually prosecuting the intense drone war against the Islamofascists in Pakistan that he very obviously is and that, even if he is, these are really bad people and it’s not a problem for loyal Democrats to [worry about now] as it certainly was on the relatively few occasions that Bushitler himself sent drones to attack Pakistanis on Pakistani soil.
But Maddow’s conscience is sometimes in evidence and, so, she pressed Holbrooke on the question of whether Pakistan is a third theater of operations for us. Is it a third war? No, says Holbrooke, who then blames Bushitler for having treated Afghanistan and Pakistan as separate and presumably sovereign nations. But why was that a mistake? Because Obama doesn’t want to have to be bothered with drawing those distinctions anymore. He doesn’t want the legal complications that the putatively lawless Bushitler burdened himself with. And you know what? If his allies in Big Media aren’t going to question his prerogative to wage war against Afghanistan’s neighbor to the east as they did just a few years ago, then Obama’s really only doing what he can get away with, being so “historic” and godlike, of course.
Oh, and remember all the flooding that devastated probably a fifth of Pakistan this past summer? Well, that’s one of those crises that we haven’t let go to waste: it turns out, according to my take on Holbrooke’s spin, that Obama is paying hush money to the Pakistanis while he steps up the air raids on their soil. Only we’re calling it aid to rebuild after the flooding.
Whatever it is, Obama is indeed waging war on a sovereign nation —one with nukes and nuts aplenty. Are you okay with that, Obamatons?
I hear the Great Orator Whose Election Healed the Planet held a formal press conference this afternoon at the White House. Remember when the long stretches between these events was remarked upon in snide terms by professional opinion-givers as evidence of Bushitler’s cowardice and/or secrecy? Oh, come now. Sure you do. I haven’t seen the replay yet, but I assume that Obamjesus’ fake-assed Stokely Carmichael routine was probably more constrained by the venue, but it remains for me to be seen.
Anyway, the President’s proposal of sustaining the “Bush tax cuts” —but only for those making $250,000 a year or less— is evidence of a couple of things:
First, it indicates that Barack Hussein Obama cannot stop attacking Small Business. This is because small businesses are the economic engine of this country. Marxist warlords don’t like or understand such entities because they (i.e., small business and this country) don’t depend directly on such warlords’ favor to succeed. Small businesses are too numerous for Leviathan to control. And so are the patriots of this country. Thus, this woefully unprepared liar who doesn’t understand the capitalist model or its inextricable links to the very nature of this country is busily destroying our economy by forcing the square peg of his theoretician’s nonsense into the round hole of the actual free market. It’s been a total disaster because the guy doesn’t know what principles this country is built on.
This proposal also shows that Obama is desperate. He believes he can keep the good opinion of the so-called middle class by soaking the rich. But it’s “the rich” who do the hiring and the investing and the spending in America. Obamajesus thinks he’s gonna end their capital strike by depressing those activities with higher taxes? Who, besides his asshole cronies and fluffers, are gonna tell him that’s a good idea?
When this President goes off-script and starts winging it, he embarrasses himself. And, really, that’s good. Because when powerful men don’t have the character to admit that they were wrong, they persist in their errors out of pride and commit horrible deeds that hurt millions. And for this sin, they are drummed out of office and made into pariahs.
We are witnesses to the evolution of a byword for the post-American wretch from here on in:
Word on the street is that the White House gave NBC/MSNBC extra access and privileges to play up the withdrawal last week of what was nominally the last American combat brigade from Iraq. Why would they do this? Because most people don’t stop to consider that Obamajesus is a creation of Big Media and that it behooves them all to keep up the fluffery for his profoundly incompetent regime. Thus, we have a President who once denounced the War for Iraq and who derided those whose policies made success possible there now not only taking the credit for it, but relying even more heavily on his predecessor’s top guys. What a miserable hypocrite Barack Hussein Obama is.
Incidentally, there are still more than 50,000 American servicemen and women in Iraq. Do they not have means of self-defense and weapons of offense? Are they still not in great danger? The war isn’t over for them. So what occasioned such heavy coverage from NBC? What was that all about, anyhow?
I just saw a nightmare for Democrats on Chris Wallace’s Sunday morning program on FOX: a generous and accommodating interview between Wallace and Ted Olson, an unquestioned Republican hero, on the latter’s recent vindication in a Federal judicial ruling against California’s Proposition 8.
If interviews like this become more common, Democrats will no longer be able to credibly accuse all Republicans of homophobic bigotry. As their strawman loses its heft with every sympathetic word from such conservatives as Limbaugh and Cheney and Olson, the truth reveals the Democrats as laughable bigots themselves, prepared to cast apsersions against all facts and fairness.
As I see it, libertarianism is much more naturally at home with the GOP than with the party of Slavery, Secession, Segregation, and Socialism. If Republicans do more to appeal to individual rights and the libertarians who insist on them, they will earn together the demographic balance they need to stay in the long-term fight against the Totalitarian Left.
The excremental Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has apparently decided to put his country ahead of party, according to this poorly-edited AP report:
President Barack Obama’s allies in the Senate will not provide funds to close the Guantanamo Bay prison until the administration comes up with a satisfactory plan for transferring the detainees held there, top Democrats said Tuesday.
And in a further break with Obama, the Senate’s top Democrat said he opposes transferring any Guantanamo prisoners to the United States for their trials or to serve their sentences. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates has said 50 to 100 Guantanamo detainees may be transferred to U.S. facilities.
“I can’t make it any more clear,” Reid said. “We will never allow terrorists to be released in the United States.”
I think it was Mitch McConnell who said Sunday last that no city in this country would welcome being the venue for the trials of these Mohammedan savages (my term, not his) because it would make those cities targets for al-Qaedists and other representatives of the Religion of Peace. I think that’s a great point. Giving them any sort of domestic profile also gives the filthy hippies who apologize for them a chance to do some of their performance art for the cameras. And I don’t care to see these jihadists exalted by the post-American neo-socialists, so nuts to that, fella.
I wonder what got into Reid, though. It’s not like him to consider the American point of view in the War against Islamofascism, so there must be an interesting backstory.
Or a sudden premonition of his own domestic dhimmitude.
The basic problem facing the Democratic Party elites with regard to torture is that they don’t know what to do with it now that it’s served its purpose in fundraising and in vilifying the former Administration. To go as far as they have with hyperbole and self-righteousness against Bush the Younger is to leave them deeply vulnerable. After all, these people have hitched their wagon to a narcissistic liar who makes Bill Clinton seem a model of partisan fidelity and personal loyalty. If they’re stupid enough to do that, then they’re stupid enough to persist with their moral preening and untenable hypocrisy.
I don’t care what happens to Pelosi or what these truth and reconciliation committees do about anything. I don’t care about so-called “torture” because I don’t believe that waterboarding or sleep deprivation or any humiliation inflicted on criminals defines American Civilization as these filthy rodents in the Democratic Party would like you to believe it does. To them, History exists to be abused and to serve self-abuse. Let’s talk about scalping Indians and lynching negroes. Let’s talk about pandemics and genocide, deliberately caused or not. Let’s live in a perpetual fog of self-loathing nonsense and never take stock of what this civilization has done to improve the lot of all mankind.
Incidentally, it’s important to remember that when Democrats talk about how evil and un-American waterboarding is, they’re actually defending mass murderers from the fear of death by drowning. They’d like to leave it as a more abstract accusation, but we’re talking about actual Islamofascist murderers, including Abu Zubaydah and Khalid Mohammed. Yes, we did make those men fear for their lives. And what of it? The moral perversity of Americans apologizing for these murderers at the expense of our national security and the dignity of those who have chosen to defend us is disgusting.
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.
I just watched the President’s latest prime time news conference and couldn’t help noticing that he enjoys blaming his political opponents for everything. If his Socialist solutions to our economic problems are crazy or if he can’t even demonstrate the most basic level of competence in doing his job, it must be because Bushitler spiked the trees. What a crybaby! “I inherited this mess! Waaahhhhh!”
Nobody —except partisan assholes like Pelosi, Reid, and Frank— wants to pass this outrageous budget of his because they recognize how tremendous the debt will become. I mean world-ending debt. It will break us over and do lasting damage to our economy and stability. Who the hell does he think he’s kidding with this shit?!
He may still have his little Marxist fantasies of guaranteeing everybody’s economic equality, but Barack Obama’s about to walk into the Great Buzzsaw of Reality. America can’t afford his delusions. Let’s see if there’re still any Democrats left who have the stones to tell him no.
