Why we need secure borders, reason #462

The van driver who witnesses say plowed into a school bus, killing four children, appeared in court Friday to face vehicular homicide charges. But authorities still aren't sure who she is, saying she's in the country illegally and using a phony name.

Sitting in a wheelchair with a broken leg Friday in Lyon County District Court, the woman said her name was Alianiss Nunez Morales. She said she'd been working in a Cottonwood, Minn., cabinet shop and living with her boyfriend in a trailer in nearby Minneota until they broke up Tuesday, the day of the crash.

But federal immigration investigator Claude Arnold said Morales is not the woman's name, and she is not revealing her identity. He said that she is here illegally, probably from Mexico.

Well, at least if she would have lived in NY, Gov. Spitzer would have seen that she had a driver's license. That would have solved everything.


1980 USA Hockey Team

I went to an Animal House style party the night this game was played. It was so crazy, me & my crew went down to the basement to watch TV while this game was on.

By the end of the night, the entire house full of people were in the basement watching the entire spectacle.

The next morning, I told my Dad about the game and we watched the US beat the Fins on Sunday.

The hair on the back of my neck stands up when I hear the call.


An exec on global warming

Finally, an executive who stands up to this global warming nonsense.

General Motors Corp (GM.N: Quote, Profile, Research) Vice Chairman Bob Lutz has defended remarks he made dismissing global warming as a "total crock of shit," saying his views had no bearing on GM's commitment to build environmentally friendly vehicles.

Lutz, GM's outspoken product development chief, has been under fire from Internet bloggers since last month when he was quoted as making the remark to reporters in Texas.


Buyer's remorse for the libs?

A liberal with buyer's remorse

Besides, who are we go get all exercised about sex? We were able to convince half of America that Bill Clinton got impeached for a Monica Lewinsky special, when in fact he got rung up for perjury in front of a federal judge in the Paula Jones case. And the miracle of the 2004 election was that we were able to turn a hapless congressman no one had ever heard of named Mark Foley into the poster boy for sexual predators, when all he did was send a few risqué e-mails to youngish male pages. As opposed to the real-life adventures of Barney Frank and Gerry Studds and, well, you get the idea.

If it feels good, we do it, and defend our right to do so. You don’t — but we know you want to, so we nail you for hypocrisy. Is there a double standard? You bet your booty there is — we’re the good guys!

The other thing that’s bothering me is this Barry Hussein Jr., guy. How long is the Punahou Kid going to be able to skate on The Audacity of Hope and The Hope of Audacity? When you actually look at his voting record — and we sure hope you never do — you notice that basically he’s more or less of a commie, not that there’s anything wrong with that. Some of my best friends are commies, er, “progressives.”

But the whole cool thing about being a far-Left liberal is that we’re like undercover secret agents, who have to shield our real goals and motives from you, the suckers. How far would we get if we actually came out and said that we want to nationalize health care, raise taxes to confiscatory levels on the filthy rich who make more than $75,000 a year, preemptively surrender in Iraq, and flood the country with illegal aliens and then turn them into citizens in a transparent attempt to get votes and keep the Ponzi Scheme solvent?


The weekend Steyn

Excerpt from this article.
On the day that Margaret Thatcher was toppled by her own party, I ran into an old friend, a hard-core leftist playwright, Marxist to the core, who wasn't as happy as he should have been. He jabbed me in the chest. "You bastards on the right!" he fumed. "You wouldn't even let us be the ones to drive the stake through her heart."

I'm sure in America's Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy there are similar mixed feelings. The Clintons have met their Waterloo but it's not some doughty conservative warrior who gets to play Duke of Wellington, only some freshman pap peddler of liberal boilerplate whom no one had heard of the day before yesterday.

My sentiments exactly.

If you have to say it.....

Hats off to the NY Times for reaffirming my belief of "if you have to say it........ it's probably not true."

Appearing on NPR's "All Things Considered" [Thursday], Bill Keller, executive editor of The New York Times said its John McCain/lobbyist bombshell was "not a gotcha story about some kind of quid pro quo. . . . We don't know if there was a quid or a quo in this case. What we do know is that people very close to him, who watched him day after day, were worried enough by his behavior that they felt that he was endangering his career."

Keller says it wasn't a "gotcha" piece.

The fact that he has to defend it says what?

It probably was.

Tonight's DUI checkpoint

Tonight we have another ineffective police action near the intersection of West North Bend Road and Hamilton Ave.

So drive over tonight and give our law enforcement officers a donut. But only if you've been wearing a seatbelt.

The Billary myth

In the year and a half that I've been doing this blog, I've attempted to dis spell the notion of The Billary popularity myth.

For some reason, democrats have always had this love affair with a political actor who never received 50% of the popular vote in either of the presidential elections he was in and have always had this script for The Billary as some kind of gothic republican killer

Here is a piece addressing the illusions of grandeur of The Billary supporters (HT Bizzyblog)

There always has been something delusional about the Clintons' project to make Hillary this country's next commander in chief. Start with the balderdash so frequently exuded through the media that she is, along with her husband, a "rock star." Well, they left the White House like rock stars. They trashed the place.

Yet Hillary, a physically unprepossessing lady on the far side of middle age, is not a rock star. Agreed, when she and her bodyguards enter a room, she turns a lot of heads, but so does a roadside automobile accident or the clumsy waitress who just spilled a warm plate of fettuccine alfredo on a customer. Why have members of the press insisted on claiming that Hillary is a rock star and, more preposterous still, that she possesses "charisma," notwithstanding that she is a pedestrian campaigner with a tin ear for politics?

For that matter, why have members of the press insisted on claiming that the former Boy President is a political genius? The Democratic Party went into decline almost everywhere throughout the republic while he was bemanuring the White House. Truth be known, when Boy Clinton began campaigning for her, her prospects darkened. The stubborn minority of journalists who have remained undeluded by the Clinton legends and aware of the Clinton record recognized the impending danger. All through the spring and summer, I was asked on talk radio and television whether I thought Bill would be active in Hillary's campaign and, if so, whether he would be an asset. Usually, I expressed doubt on both counts. As I point out in my book about his retirement and his attendant designs to return to the White House, "The Clinton Crack-Up," Hillary's staff always has been uneasy about the presence of her big loveable lug on the campaign trail. Anyone who might bother to contemplate his record as a campaigner would recognize that he is poison when he campaigns for others. In 2004, of the 14 fated Democrats he campaigned for, 12 lost.

I believe we're seeing this same incarnation with Obamamania. People see Obamamania as some kind of invincible tidal wave of liberalism sweeping across the nation.

Why? Because he took out The Billary, the former invincible tidal wave of liberalism.

Let's remind our "progressive" friends out there that they have not received 51% of the popular vote in a presidential election since LBJ in 1964. Jimma Carter got all of 50.8% of the popular vote against a perceived corrupt republican administration.

Progressives would probably offer that their lack of success is more due to the messenger than the message. But their message is why their messengers are continually rejected. After all, look at the GOP candidates over the years (Nixon, Ford, Dole, Bush) not exactly a Whitman sampler of charismatic candidates.

The Billary received all of 49.2% of the vote against a corpse and a lunatic in 1996.

It's still early in the process, but I think it's going to be hilarious to watch all these Kool Aid drinking Obamamania types become totally unhinged when their candidate gets bitch slapped in the general election.

And the NY Times accomplished nothing this morning except piss off a bunch of republicans who probably would have stayed home in November rather than vote for McCain.

The cult of Che, I mean, Obama II

I’m an Obama girl and my man throttled Hillary Clinton, again, Tuesday night.

Suddenly, the impossible is real.

Suddenly, I’m nervous. Very nervous, actually.

I’m nervous because an otherwise normal grownup told me yesterday she’s watched the (Black Eyed Peas) “Yes We Can” Obama video about 100 times and gets “weepy” every time.

I’m nervous because a longtime political type, normally quite cynical, now waxes rhapsodic about Obama’s “cool.”

“He’s elegant, controlled, the best-dressed candidate ever,” he says. Never a red tie, yellow or bright blue. No, Obama does a subdued lean charcoal gray suit with a gray or silvery tie. Everything muted, measured, fluid. “He floats onto the stage, a bit of the Fred Astaire thing going.”

Fred Astaire?

This same man, 100 percent anti-illegal aliens, fears Obama could pull a Reagan or a JFK on the Mexican border, head down there, chanting, “Tear down this wall!” or even do an “Ich bin ein Tijuana!!!”

He’s with Obama anyway.

I’m nervous because Harvard political genius Elaine Kamarck told me Hillary understands the various messes we’re in far better than Obama.

Suppose Kamarck’s right?

I’m nervous about the “O’Bambi” factor. Will the terrorists move in next door when Obama’s in the White House?

I’m nervous because Michelle Obama, about whom I just wrote a fawning puff piece, now says that until her husband’s stunning ascendancy, she’s never before been proud of America. Huh?

Barack now claims she didn’t mean it. Oh, yes she did. We all know the insufferable, holier-than-thou, Blame-America-First types who lecture the unwashed from the rarefied air of Cambridge and Brookline.

If I wanted lecturing, I’d be with Hillary.


McCain v NY Times

I don't have time to go through everything that's wrong with the Times piece. Especially when the other bloggers have great takes on it. ( NixGuy, Paindealer, Riehl World, Darke GOP)

Regardless, I do have some points on the piece

1) This qualifies as "journalism"? I've seen better, in depth, pieces on My Space.

2) Wow, I'm shocked that lobbyists hang around senators offices. This is just a hunch, but you probably won't find a tobacco lobbyist hanging around a anti smoking zealot's office. Lobbyists hang around to pols sympathetic to their cause. That's no surprise to anyone but apparently the NY Times.

3) The article mentions that aides were advised to keep her at a distance from McCain but it doesn't mentioned who issued that order. Could it have been McCain himself?

4) The article goes from this relationship to the Keating Five and back to some favors McCain did for this lobbyist. None of these things have to do with the other and the article doesn't link any of them together. It's totally a "throw some shit on the wall and let's see what sticks" piece.

5) Look I've gone back and forth on McCain and I won't support a scumbag which he would be if he was nailing this ho. But ultimately, this piece says much more about the NY Times than it does McCain.

Global Warming challenge update

The update score through 2/20/08... Warm-68 Low-52

All I know is my car thermometer showed -0- degrees this morning. It's almost March for cryin' out loud.

I've noted before that the democratic party is a lose conglomeration of victim groups that often have disputes/grievances against other victim groups within the party ie black v hispanics, union workers v environmentalist, etc.

But it's more than interesting when people within the same group fight amongst themselves.

Excerpt from this story

In an environmental dispute seemingly scripted for eco-friendly California, a man asked prosecutors to file charges against his neighbors because their towering redwoods blocked sunlight to his backyard solar panels.

But the couple next door insisted they should not have to chop down the trees to accommodate Mark Vargas' energy demands because they planted the redwoods before he installed the solar panels in 2001.

Experts say such clashes could become more common as California promotes renewable energy and solar systems become more popular.

Be nice to Fidel

A memo sent to CNN staffers regarding Fidel. From babalublog

From: Flexner, Allison
Sent: Tuesday, February 19, 2008 7:46 AM
To: *CNN Superdesk (TBS)
Cc: Neill, Morgan; Darlington, Shasta
Subject: Castro guidance

Some points on Castro – for adding to our anchor reads/reporting:

* Please say in our reporting that Castro stepped down in a letter he wrote to Granma (the communist party daily), as opposed to in a letter attributed to Fidel Castro. We have no reason to doubt he wrote his resignation letter, he has penned numerous articles over the past year and a half.

* Please note Fidel did bring social reforms to Cuba – namely free education and universal health care, and racial integration. in addition to being criticized for oppressing human rights and freedom of speech.

* Also the Cuban government blames a lot of Cuba’s economic problems on the US embargo, and while that has caused some difficulties, (far less so than the collapse of the Soviet Union) the bulk of Cuba’s economic problems are due to Cuba’s failed economic polices. Some analysts would say the US embargo was a benefit to Castro politically – something to blame problems on, by what the Cubans call “the imperialist,” meddling in their affairs.

* While despised by some, he is seen as a revolutionary hero, especially with leftist in Latin America, for standing up to the United States.

Any questions, please call the international desk.

Why "progressive" cities go broke

City government should be about three things and three things only; fire, police and roads.

You can change the order all you want but it's still three things; unless, of course, you live in "Progress" City.

See "progressives" can't have a city government without the important job of "Director of Climate Protection Initiatives". Of course, that position pays the paltry salary of $160,000/year plus bennies.

I guess it's a "progressive" idea to watch your city go broke.

Obamamania legislative accomplishments

This is good.

Hat Tip to BOTW

Sex offenders go home

Thousands of Ohio sex offenders can return to their homes after the state Supreme Court ruled Wednesday in favor of a Green Township man who fought a July 2003 law retroactively requiring him to move because of an earlier conviction.

Justices agreed in a 6-1 decision that the state legislature was unclear about the law’s retroactive intent when it banned sex offenders from living within 1,000 feet of schools.

Gerry Porter Jr., 45, plans to move back home with his family in Bridgetown after Hamilton County Common Pleas Court Judge Robert Ruehlman ordered him to move in October 2005 because he lived about 300 yards from St. Jude’s School.

It's always been odd to me that a sex offender can stand outside of a school yard and watch kids but can't live within a 1000 feet of a school regardless of their offense.

I know of a guy who is required to be inside of his home by 10:00 every night. You know... because the streets are lined up with kids after 10:00.

Hopefully, the courts will bring some sanity to these stupid restrictions on these offenders.

As I always say, if our elected officials truly believe these guys are a danger to our kids, why are they on the streets to begin with?


Another PKB for The Billary

It's amazing how many Pot Kettle Black awards The Billary has racked up on this site.

The Billary is whipping out the "name one accomplishment" card on Obamamania.

I'm actually still awaiting for The Billary to name one accomplishment it's ever had.

It must be that famous Clinton-Voinovich Liberal Education act of 2006. Or that Hagel- Clinton Socialized Medicine Act of 2004, or the Clinton-Snowe Petroleum Price reduction Act of 2001.

The accomplishments are so numerous, we just can't seem to name any.

Seriously, If either of these empty suits are so committed to health care for all and have such tremendous leadership skills, how is it no one can name one bill they ever shepherded through the senate.

Say what you will about McCain, when he's passionate about an issue, he'll at least get a photo op out of the deal.

Has Obamamania killed The Billary?

It's been 9 primary victories in a row.

That would end the political life of a mere mortal. But we're talking about The Billary, the Freddy Kreuger of politics.

Those victories amount to no more than a few gun shot wounds, a stabbing in the eye, torching and throwing The Billary off a 10 story building. That would kill every other politician but The Billary is still flinching.

One has to wonder, if Che Obama is the only pol able to finally kill off The Billary, does that make him super human? It might.

It might also give poor Michelle the second thing she can be proud of in her adult life.

Mismanagement Blues

The city of Vallejo CA looks as though it's going to file bankruptcy soon.


Which party do you think has dominated Vallejo politics for the past decade and is responsible for this gross mismanagement.

If you answered democrats, you get a gold star.

Expect similar management from a "progressive" city near you.

I'm still waiting for a "progressive" to tell me how their management of our cities is sooooooo good.

Geldof on Bush

Dear Bob Geldof,

I'm reading this piece on Bush's aid to Africa and was especially stuck by this excerpt.
Mr. Geldof praised Mr. Bush for his work in delivering billions to fight disease and poverty in Africa, and blasted the U.S. press for ignoring the achievement.

Mr. Bush, said Mr. Geldof, "has done more than any other president so far."

"This is the triumph of American policy really," he said. "It was probably unexpected of the man. It was expected of the nation, but not of the man, but both rose to the occasion."

"What's in it for [Mr. Bush]? Absolutely nothing," Mr. Geldof said.

Mr. Geldof said that the president has failed "to articulate this to Americans" but said he is also "pissed off" at the press for their failure to report on this good news story.

"You guys didn't pay attention," Geldof said to a group of reporters from all the major newspapers.

Look here you little twerp. You don't know the George Bush that we know. The George Bush who's wiretapping the phones of his enemies, arresting them and throwing them in a prisoner of war camp in Gitmo; the Bush who's intent on starving children and puppies to death; the Bush who wants to turn the world into a global warming inferno.

We've been paying attention all right, but we've been watching the important things; like watching Karl Rove eat lunch with a Hitler youth group.

So you have no idea who you're talking about. It's because of our keen knowledge and intellect that allows us to see the real George Bush and his neo con attempts to rule the world.

You're an idiot.


The American News Media

More on Che Obama's communist ties

I guess it's more than just a few fans of Obamamania throwing up some Che flags in a "volunteer" campaign office.

In his books, Obama admits attending "socialist conferences" and coming into contact with Marxist literature. But he ridicules the charge of being a "hard-core academic Marxist," which was made by his colorful and outspoken 2004 U.S. Senate opponent, Republican Alan Keyes.

However, through Frank Marshall Davis, Obama had an admitted relationship with someone who was publicly identified as a member of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA). The record shows that Obama was in Hawaii from 1971-1979, where, at some point in time, he developed a close relationship, almost like a son, with Davis, listening to his "poetry" and getting advice on his career path. But Obama, in his book, Dreams From My Father, refers to him repeatedly as just "Frank."

The reason is apparent: Davis was a known communist who belonged to a party subservient to the Soviet Union. In fact, the 1951 report of the Commission on Subversive Activities to the Legislature of the Territory of Hawaii identified him as a CPUSA member. What's more, anti-communist congressional committees, including the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC), accused Davis of involvement in several communist-front organizations.

Is it possible to want The Billary back?

So the democratic primary has turned into a corrupt v communist campaign.


Fidel retires

So Fidel is retiring.

His reign has outlived the Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush I, Clinton, Bush II. Yet it was probably easier to get rid of him than The Billary.

Don't tell the Che Obama freaks down there in Houston. They'll want to ship Obama down there to take over Cuba. Oh sorry, I forgot, they want to turn the US into Cuba.

Jeni Lee busted.

Boy I know the community should feel safer now.

Jeni Lee Dinkel, convicted of having sex with a teenager, was busted for a probation violation.

Her alleged violation? Grabbing a kid and hauling him into a car? Flashing a youngin' in a Walmart? Foundling a little girl at a day care center?

She was at a funeral for a Cov Cath student where other students were congregating.

Wow, I know she was probably going at it with a student in the casket.

"....I'm really proud of my country"

To quote Mrs. Obamamania from this speech.

This is what I was talking about, just yesterday, in a post about democrats.

I'll clue you in Mrs. Obamamania, you live in the greatest country in the history of mankind, and you're just getting to a place where you can be proud of that country.

You make me sick.

It's clear that the number one reason liberals like this country is the freedom to bitch about what's wrong with it. They'll never get that the freedom that allows that dissent is what makes it great to begin with.

Here's the deal for all you progressives out there. You don't need to transform the US into a Che/Fidel utopia, you're free to move their right now. That's part of what makes America great.

The Billary is losing it's touch

Dear Billary

I just read a piece where you are accusing Obama of plagiarizing a speech in Milwaukee yesterday.

Are you kidding me?

C'mon you are the Clintons, remember?

You are the guys that pulled all those FBI files on your enemies and all you can come up with on this Obama guy is some lame plagiarism. Oh, I'm sorry. I forgot about that kindergarten essay you whipped out on the guy last year.

I guess eight years have passed since you had those FBI files so you probably didn't even have Che on your sights yet. But c'mon; you are the Clintons. You guys don't just throw sleaze, you bathe in it.

What's the deal with you guys. You got so fat and happy making millions off of speaking engagements, you didn't want to invest in a few PI's to keep the gravy train flowing.

I'm disappointed, I was really looking for a good cow pattie toss this primary season. Instead, there's no need to watch this Clinton reality show anymore.... it has really jumped the shark.

Your Old Friends

The Democratic Party

Feeding the beast

A Bush Bash, but the writer makes some salient points.

As a result, going into 2008, the United States finds itself in the anomalous position of being unable to pay for its own elevated living standards or its wasteful, overly large military establishment. Its government no longer even attempts to reduce the ruinous expenses of maintaining huge standing armies, replacing the equipment that seven years of wars have destroyed or worn out, or preparing for a war in outer space against unknown adversaries. Instead, the Bush administration puts off these costs for future generations to pay or repudiate. This fiscal irresponsibility has been disguised through many manipulative financial schemes (causing poorer countries to lend us unprecedented sums of money), but the time of reckoning is fast approaching.


More on Che Obama

A little more history on Che. you may know him as the people some of Obama's backer seem to adore.

During recent interviews of Obama campaign workers on Houston's Fox TV station, the offices of two Texas Obama campaign volunteers ( including a precinct captain and head of the "Houston Obama Leadership Team") were found prominently decorated with Che Guevara images, against the backdrop of Cuban flags. The MSM kept mum, but the conservative blogoshere spread the story. Intrepid blogger Henry Gomez (Babalu Blog), uncovered 15 different pages of Che Guevara well-wishers on the official Obama campaign site.

Two days after the Fox TV airing the Obama campaign finally went on record and in a terse statement described the Houston office posters as "inappropriate."
Inappropriate? Yes, and in the same league as cross-burning or swastika-painting are “inappropriate.” This is not trivial.

Ernesto "Che" Guevara was second in command, chief executioner, and chief KGB liaison for a regime that outlawed elections and private property. This regime's KGB-supervised police -- employing the midnight knock and the dawn raid among other devices -- rounded up and jailed more political prisoners as a percentage of population than Stalin's and executed more people (out of a population of 6.4 million) in its first three years in power than Hitler's executed (out of a population of 70 million) in it's first six.

Sounds like democrats to me.

The sport's fan food pyramid

From the guys at Deadspin

Che, Berkeley and Toledo

Nothing probably influenced my transformation from a liberal to a conservative than the number of anti American democrats in this country.

This is the greatest country in the world. Yet there is a large population of liberals that hate this country and want to turn the US into some kind of Pro Castro utopia.

If you ever wanted to know what our country would look like with liberals running everything just look at our cities where you can't find a republican with a search warrant. Liberals control it all.

Some Utopia.


More on the Obama weak kneed, panty throwing media

After watching the speech by Sen. Obama following his primary victories in Virginia, Maryland and D.C. on Tuesday, Matthews told his co-host Keith Olbermann, “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.”

No, seriously. He really thinks that is an “objective assessment.”

But of course Matthews is right about one thing. Obama does speak about America in a way that has nothing to do with politics. Politics is about policies, about ideas, about programs — but Obama’s speech is all about platitudes and puffery and pretense. Just read the speech that gave Matthews “restless leg syndrome,” and you’ll see what I mean.


Obama, Che... Che, Obama

Jeff Jacoby on the Che/Obama dust up.

Obama has been widely compared to JFK, most notably by the late president's brother and daughter. President Kennedy, a stalwart anticommunist, despised Castro and his gang of totalitarian thugs. But when word broke last week that Obama's supporters in Houston work under a banner glorifying Che, the campaign's reaction was to brush it off as an issue involving volunteers, not the official campaign. After two days of controversy, the campaign issued a statement calling the flag "inappropriate" and saying its display "does not reflect Senator Obama's views." Would JFK have reacted so mildly?

In December 1962, Kennedy offered a blunt summary of the Castro/Che record. "The Cuban people were promised by the revolution political liberty, social justice, intellectual freedom, land for the campesinos, and an end to economic exploitation," he said. "They have received a police state, the elimination of the dignity of land ownership, the destruction of free speech and a free press, and the complete subjugation of individual human welfare." Eleven months later, in a speech intended for delivery on the day he was assassinated, Kennedy regretted that Castro's "Communist foothold" in Latin America had "not yet been eliminated."

Were he alive today, it's hard to imagine JFK feeling anything but contempt for those who extol a dictatorship that has been crushing freedom and human beings for nearly 50 years. And it would surely pain him that so many of the cheerleaders are members of his own party.
