The Billary campaign

I'd say this encapsulates The Billary campaign.

HT Plunderbund

The cult of Che, I mean, Obama

I received this comment from a reader.

"This is a volunteer office that is not in any way controlled by the Obama campaign. We were disappointed to see this picture because it is both offensive to many Cuban-Americans -- and Americans of all backgrounds -- and because it does not reflect Senator Obama’s views. Barack Obama has been very clear in putting forward a Cuba policy that is based on one principle: freedom for the Cuban people." -- Obama campaign.

The fact that the Obama people have distanced themselves from this office is really beside the point.

The point is, these are the types of people who are supporting Obama, communists and communist sympathizers.

What does that say about Obama himself? The cult of personality that threw Castro, Chavez, et al. into power resembles Obama.

It's no coincidence that Obama received another powerful endorsement the other day from none other than Daniel Ortega, Nicaraguan President and leader of the communist backed sandinistas.
"It's not to say that there is already a revolution under way in the U.S. ... but yes, they are laying the foundations for a revolutionary change," the Sandinista leader said Wednesday night as he accepted an honorary doctorate from an engineering university."

As I say repeatedly about the issues and candidates, I look to see who's backing what/who and that tells me more than any speech will and I see communists supporting Obama. Plain and simple.

Oh, by the way, if you need a refresher course on what a nice guy Che Gueverra was try this.

"The U.S. is the great enemy of mankind!" raved Ernesto "Che" Guevara in 1961. "Against those hyenas there is no option but extermination. We will bring the war to the imperialist enemies' very home, to his places of work and recreation. The imperialist enemy must feel like a hunted animal wherever he moves. Thus we'll destroy him! We must keep our hatred against them (the U.S.) alive and fan it to paroxysms!"


Question of the day

In the democratic primary, who has the most votes from a popular vote stand point?

For all the crying about Al Gore on 2000, you'd think the democratic party would be sensitive to selecting a candidate with the most popular votes in the primary season. I'm just curious as to who that person is.

But then again, I guess it's OK to disenfranchise a million Florida voters as long as you're a democrat.

That didn't take long

Apparently, "your right to know supersedes your right to exist" to steal a punch line.

All the news outlets are giving us all the background to this shooting douchebag in Illinois.

Nice touch assholes.


Memo to all media

The shooter punk at Northern Illinois will want to live in infamy by having you advertise his name all over the place.

Don't give him the satisfaction.

Don't be a tool for the next deranged psychopath to do the same thing so that he can live in infamy.

Charles Krauthammer on the cult of Obama

Interestingly, Obama has been able to win these electoral victories and dazzle crowds in one new jurisdiction after another, even as his mesmeric power has begun to arouse skepticism and misgivings among the mainstream media.

ABC's Jake Tapper notes the "Helter-Skelter cult-ish qualities" of "Obama worshipers," what Joel Stein of the Los Angeles Times calls "the Cult of Obama." Obama's Super Tuesday victory speech was a classic of the genre. Its effect was electric, eliciting a rhythmic fervor in the audience -- to such rhetorical nonsense as "We are the ones we've been waiting for. (Cheers, applause.) We are the change that we seek."

That was too much for Time's Joe Klein. "There was something just a wee bit creepy about the mass messianism," he wrote. "The message is becoming dangerously self-referential. The Obama campaign all too often is about how wonderful the Obama campaign is."

I have to admit, originally I was more than happy to watch The Billary take a beat down from Obamamania. But I think it's going to be more fun watch Obamamania get bitch slapped in November. These people will be suicidal.

Newt on a "democratic" race

Newt Gingrinch on the democratic primaries.

Democrats are headed for a trainwreck in campaign '08 that threatens to produce a tainted Democratic presidential nominee and, worse, a divisive and delegitimized presidential contest.

Recall that when Michigan and Florida moved up their primaries in defiance of Democratic Party rules earlier this year, the party bosses decided to punish them by unseating their delegates. The Florida and Michigan primaries were turned into beauty contests.

At the time, it seemed like a good move since everyone assumed that the Michigan and Florida delegates wouldn't really matter in the nomination battle. The conventional wisdom was that one Democratic candidate would emerge early in the contest, and arrive at the convention with a comfortable margin of delegates for the nomination.

But the one constant in campaign '08 so far is that the conventional wisdom is wrong. Instead of a sprint, the Democratic race has turned into a slog. And it's now looking more and more likely that the Democratic presidential fight will not produce a clear and decisive winner.

Hey Newt, let me clue you in on something; everything democrats touch is a train wreck. Have you ever looked at our inner cities?

What about the New Mexico vote which took all of nine days to tabulate. Wait until the Ohio mess gets going and who's running that election? If you guess democrat, you get a gold star.

The fact is, the democrats in general can't run businesses or governments so what makes you think they can run an effective primary process.?

Same question on Barbara

For equal time...

Barbara... Yes or no?

Simple Question on Chelsea

For the guys

Chelsea.... Yes or No?

Sowell on Fascism

Thomas Sowell on the history of fascists and the American sympathizers.

Because the word “fascist” is often thrown around loosely these days, as a general term of abuse, it is good that Liberal Fascism begins by discussing the real Fascism, introduced into Italy after the First World War by Benito Mussolini.

The Fascists were completely against individualism in general and especially against individualism in a free-market economy. Their agenda included minimum-wage laws, government restrictions on profit-making, progressive taxation of capital, and “rigidly secular” schools.

Unlike the Communists, the Fascists did not seek government ownership of the means of production. They just wanted the government to call the shots as to how businesses would be run.

They were for “industrial policy,” long before liberals coined that phrase in the United States.


The Billary's in town

Now that Ohio looks like it might be a player in the presidential library, The Billary will be coming around. Last night Chelsea was in town.

Just as a reminder to Ohioans, make sure hide your valuables and tell your wives and daughters to be careful because there will be a sexual predator in our vicinity for the next few weeks.

We just need a new door

So your business is struggling and you're wondering what you can do to increase you business.

If you're the Underground Railroad Museum you simply go to the state and ask for 1.4 million.


"It's questionable whether The Banks will get done," said Freedom Center CEO Don Murphy. He said the center needs the second "front door" to maximize attendance. The north side of the building includes a lightly used "tour group" entrance. The Freedom Center wants to turn that into the second main entrance.

I know I've talked to hundreds of people who have told me that they would go down to that white elephant if they knew how to get into the place.

Man, that site would make for a nice casino.

The Beagle takes it

Congratulations to Uno, the beagle.

Apparently he's a conservative so we're looking to add him to the line up.

MSNBC endorsement

Well, as a network, they really haven't come out with an endorsement unless you count this as one.

Excerpt from Chris Matthews
I have to tell you, you know, it's part of reporting this case, this election, the feeling most people get when they hear Barack Obama's speech. My, I felt this thrill going up my leg. I mean, I don't have that too often. No, seriously. It's a dramatic event. He speaks about America in a way that has nothing to do with politics. It has to do with the feeling we have about our country. And that is an objective assessment.

You have to wonder when women (or commentators) are going to start throwing panties at this guy.


Congratulations Detroit

Once again, new statistics have come out to prove my theory that the more "blue" your city is, the bigger the pile of crap it is.

The Detroit area, hit hard by the double-whammy of unemployment and a slumping housing market, had the highest foreclosure rate in the nation last year, with several cities in California ranked close behind, an analysis of foreclosure activity in the country's largest 100 metropolitan areas shows.

Some 4.9 percent of the households in the Detroit metro area were in some stage of foreclosure in 2007 -- 4.8 times the national average, according to the study being released Wednesday by mortgage research company RealtyTrac Inc.

What they need in Detroit? Some more of those really snappy Jeff Bridges commercials where he talks about how wonderful Michigan is.

Well except for the crime, the foreclosures, the 10% unemployment, the horrible schools, etc.

Che, Obama... Obama, Che

If you haven't seen the video of the Obama office with the Che Guevara flag on the wall you should.

I'm starting to wonder is there really any difference between a democrat and a communist anymore?

Blue State exodus

Excerpt from an opinion piece from the WSJ
An old adage says high taxes don't redistribute income, they redistribute people. For new evidence look no further than migration patterns within the United States, as documented in a new survey by the moving company United Van Lines.

A record eight million Americans -- some 20,000 people every day -- relocated to another state last year. So where are these families headed and why? The general picture is this: Americans are continuing to flee the Northeast and Midwest, while the leading destinations continue to be Southern and Western states.

The United Van Lines study finds that the biggest population loser last year was Michigan, where two families moved out of the state for every new family that moved in. Americans are also fleeing New York, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Illinois. Without interviewing the departed, it's impossible to know the reasons for this outward migration. No doubt overall economic prospects, climate, quality of life and housing prices play a role.

If you are a "progressive", to what do you attribute the flight from the states that you control and govern?

Does it ever dawn on you that your poor governance results in high taxes & regulation which, in turn, results in high unemployment, high crime, crappy schools & more poverty?

Don't believe me... just look at every inner city in the US. All inhabited and governed by "progressives".

I know there are some liberals out there who read this blog; they're always quick to comment when I have a misspelling or a grammar error on a post but they're always quiet when I challenge them on the pure fact that all the communities they govern...... are shit holes.

Why is that?

Note that I'm just not challenging democrats here, I'm also challenging liberal republicans like our Bob Taft's of the world.

What the hell do these guys say to themselves when they look at a state like Michigan? "Wow, Michigan is turning into a third world country, maybe we should do what they're doing".

DUI plates

Washington state is attempting to force drivers with DUI convictions to sport a yellow plate much like Ohio requires.

Out of curiosity, I wonder, can you get those personalized?

If I ever get a DUI, I think I'm going down to the DMW and get one of those plates with BUDLITE or JACK D or LUVSHOTS or BEER4ME on it.

Global Warming challenge update

The update on my global warming challenge.

Warm - 64 Cold -41

So far the number of below average days have just about equaled the number of above average days. The difference in the scores is four record setting warm days.

After getting a $400 utility bill last month, I could use some more of those.

The White Death is here

"Don't go out unless you have to".

We have an inch of snow coated with a little rain but you would think the apocalypse was upon us.

I'm all snuggled up here in my office as I am each and every day. If I can make through the impending end of the world, you can to. Now get your ass to work.

By the way, Ladies if you go to a singles bar and a guy tells you he's a weather man. Just know that he can't measure anything.

Where's Reagan when we need him.

Cal Thomas with a piece on conservatives and the GOP


John McCain, some say, is not a true conservative. Was Reagan? Reagan campaigned as a tax cutter. He cut taxes, but he also raised them. He promised conservative judges and spoke of his opposition to abortion, yet named two justices to the Supreme Court (Sandra Day O'Connor and Anthony Kennedy) who voted to uphold Roe v. Wade. Against the advice of some, Reagan deployed Marines to Lebanon and saw them murdered by a homicide bomber. Reagan engaged in an arms-for-hostages deal with Iran. As president, Reagan seldom went to church, unlike his evangelical base. If conservatives knew in advance these things about Reagan, would they have voted for him in such numbers?

Contemporary conservatism has mostly been about saying "no" to the liberal agenda. Suppose conservatives instead begin to circumvent liberals by applying better ideas to achieve ends liberals and conservatives claim to seek?

He make some good points. I know most of the SOB alliance hates McCain but in reality, since Reagan have we really had a conservative presidential candidate.

We've had George H.W. "voodoo economics" Bush
Bob "Mr. Farm subsidy" Dole
and George W. Bush who is everything a liberal should love outside of the war.

The fact is the Republican party is loaded with a bunch of country club types and they are the ones who dominate the party. McCain is the rule more than the exception.

Just not enough Steyn

Excerpt from a Mark Steyn piece in Imprimus

As we know from 9/11, the Wahabbis in Saudi Arabia use their oil wealth to spread their destructive ideology to every corner of the world. And so do the Canadians. Consider that in the last 40 years, fundamental American ideas have made no headway whatsoever in Canada, whereas fundamental Canadian ideas have made huge advances in America and the rest of the Western world. To take two big examples, multiculturalism and socialized health care—both pioneered in Canada—have made huge strides down here in the U.S., whereas American concepts—such as non-confiscatory taxation—remain as foreign as ever

For a Canandian, Steyn exhibits more passion for the American economic freedom than any of our elected officials

No wonder The Billary is low on funds.

Headline on Drudge

Several arrested in Chinese spy sweep


I guess these guys won't be kicking in to the next Billary fundraiser.

Snow at CPAC

Tony Snow with a great speech to CPAC.

How is it that we can have so much intellectual horsepower on issues and really have not one solid politician (House, Senate, Governorship, President and Presidential candidates) to promote those ideas?

Public Schools

How do you know when you public schools are a shambles?

When you wait in line all weekend in sub freezing temperatures just to get you kid into a magnet school.

Instead of waiting in line all weekend, you could do what millions of other citizens have done for the past four decades.... move to the suburbs

The Billary Golden Oldies

The American Thinker with a great piece on the Billary Golden Oldies... Who could forget these classics....

Here is a list of the most popular Golden Oldies:
  • Whitewater,
  • Madison Guaranty Savings and Loan,
  • Rose Law Firm,
  • 1000% profit Cattle Futures,
  • Castle Grande,
  • The McDougals,
  • Web Hubbell,
  • Tyson Foods,
  • Lippo Group,
  • Vince Foster,
  • Travel Office firings,
  • David Hale,
  • Paula Jones,
  • Jim Guy Tucker,
  • Chinagate,
  • James Riady,
  • Mike Espy,
  • Billy Dale,
  • Monica Lewinsky,
  • John Huang,
  • Ron Brown,
  • Gore Buddhist fund-raising,
  • "No controlling legal authority",
  • FBI filegate,
  • Hillary's missing subpoenaed Rose Law firm files reappear in White House,
  • Janet Reno,
  • Charlie Trie,
  • Bruce Babbitt,
  • Maria Hsia,
  • Kathleen Willey,
  • Sidney Blumenthal,
  • Vernon Jordan,
  • Juanita Broderick,
  • Pardongate,
  • Marc Rich.

Each scandal attached to each of the above names and events is both serious and abounding with investigative possibilities. And so many remain unresolved. Surely a rich harvest awaits the intrepid journalist investigator, but major news media will never take on the Clinton record. The treatment of Sandy Berger's theft of classified pre-9/11 documents is only the most recent and egregious example of a media scandal written in water.

You can have all these back with a simple vote for The Billary in a primary coming to you.

By the way, how could he forget about the "vast right wing conspiracy".

Here's a speech to CPAC by Mark Steyn.

This rivals Ronald Reagan's 1964 convention speech.

A must listen.

Hat Tip Paindealer

They're not RINO's

Dear Gordon

I think it is time for you and your conservative bloggersphere to get off of this "John McCain is as liberal as a democrat".

I have served with senator McCain and I can tell you that he is every bit as conservative as any of my honorable senatorial colleagues.

Now is the time to quit these attacks on a true American hero and get behind the conservative agenda me and my fellow colleagues are trying to push forward.

If you refuse to back Senator McCain, I will have no choice but to get the podium next to the nearest TV camera and cry incessantly about the injustice.


Your conservative public servant

Senator George Voinovich

Warning - massive spring flooding near

If The Billary loses another primary, the tears could flood the Ohio River Valley by the time our primary hits in March.

Progress City

There are plenty of good takes on the debacle called the city of Toledo. Maggie Thurber has the latest/greatest on the issue.

I'm just going to offer this to the "progressive" types who run the city of Toledo.

I think you should be more worried about having a 10 story empty office building in your city than the Marines coming in. But then, you are about "progress" now aren't you.

Wait! I hear it again. What's that sound? It's the sound of another moving van loaded with a productive taxpayer heading out to the suburbs, run by those horrible republicans.

Myths of neo cons

Just yesterday, I posted on the question, What is the distinction between a neo con and your garden variety conservative.

The Washington Post on Neo con myths

As the Bush administration winds down, neoconservatism has become the most feared and reviled intellectual movement in American history. The neoconservatives have become the subject of numerous myths, mostly spread by their numerous detractors. They're seen as dangerous heretics by livid liberals as well as by traditional conservatives such as William F. Buckley Jr. and Patrick Buchanan.

So "neocon" has become a handy term of condemnation, routinely deployed to try to silence liberal hawks such as Sen. Joseph Lieberman of Connecticut or right-wing interventionists such as former deputy secretary of defense Paul D. Wolfowitz and the former Pentagon official Richard N. Perle, who's been nicknamed the "Prince of Darkness." That moniker aside, the neocons insist that there's nothing sinister about them; they simply believed that after 9/11, the United States should use its power to spread democracy throughout the Arab world, just as it had done in Eastern Europe and Central America during the Cold War. Their critics aren't so sure -- and the misconceptions grow.
