Now Tom Dasshole Is The Next Obama Pick With Tax Trouble

What is it with the ethicly-challenged people being appointed for the Obama Administration.

First, it was Tim Geithner, who was nonetheless approved for Treasury Secretary (with a little help from Republican eunuchs in the Senate). Now it's Tom Dashcle, or, as I've called him "Tom Dasshole. (Washington Post).
Thomas A. Daschle, nominated to be secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, did not pay more than $128,000 in taxes over three years, a revelation that poses a potential obstacle to his Senate confirmation.

The back taxes, along with $12,000 in interest and penalties, involved unreported consulting fees, questionable charitable contributions, and a car and driver provided by a private equity firm run by entrepreneur and longtime Democratic Party donor Leo J. Hindery Jr., according to a confidential draft report prepared by Senate Finance Committee staff.

...Because of an apparent clerical error by the equity firm, Daschle did not report more than $83,000 in consulting fees in 2007 and has not provided sufficient documentation relating to $15,000 in charitable contributions over three years, according to the panel's report. He and his wife, Linda, gave $276,000 in charitable contributions during the three-year period being studied by the panel, according to a Daschle aide.

Clerical error my ass! I find it funny how liberals tell the rest of us about "sacrifice" and how we need to "pay our fair share."

Using Joe "Plugs" Biden's definition, can I call Dasshole "unpatriotic?"

So when is Sandy Burglar going to receive a cabinet nomination?

Congratulations To Michael Steele, New RNC Chair (Plus) The Liberal Racism Begins

****Welcome Bookworm Room readers****

A hearty congratulations and best wishes to Michael Steele, former Maryland Lt. Governor, who was elected last night to be the chair of the Republican National Committee.

Per the UK Telegraph:

Mr Steele, a regular on cable television will be the high profile face of the party until the Republicans begin selecting a presidential candidate in 2011.

He wasted no time in making clear that he has the new president personally in his sights, saying he would torpedo the public perception that the Republicans are "a party unconcerned about minorities, a party that's unconcerned about the lives and dreams of average Americans." Mr Obama was politely dismissive of Mr Steele when he ran unsuccessfully for the senate in 2006. Asked what he would say to Mr Obama now, Mr Steele said: "I would say to the new president, congratulations. It is going to be an honour to spar with him. And I would follow that up with: How do you like me now?"

Mr Steele also tried to reclaim the legacy of Abraham Lincoln, which Mr Obama has been appropriating of late. He called his win "just one more bold step the party of Lincoln has taken since its founding."

...Shawn Steel, a California representative on the Republican National Committee described Mr Steele's victory as "the most thoroughgoing change since Ronald Reagan took over the Party" in 1980.

I was really impressed with a lot of what I heard from Steele, especially when it came to outreach and being more inclusive to those of us in the online community, especially after how the Democrats have used left-wing websites and blogs.

My hope and advice for Mr. Steele. We need to stand on the principles of conservatism. Don't be ashamed to promote and don't try to water it down. Educate the American people as to why conservatism is best for all Americans.

And, unfortunately, Steele's election has brought out the racism among the same liberals who tossed Oreo Cookies at him and defaced him as a "Sambo." Look at Daily Kos.

....and Democrat Underground.

State of Virgina Pays $500,000 For Buses To Expensive Obama Inaugural

While the State of Virginia is predicting a $3 billion budget deficit, the state's part-time Governor (and new DNC chair) Tim Kaine spent $500,000 of Virginia taxpayer money to transport Virginians to the inauguration of the anointed Messiah, Barack the Obama.

Daily, via BVBL has more.
RICHMOND, Va. - Gov. Tim Kaine says his close relationship with President Barack Obama had nothing to do with the state's $500,000 expenditure to bus Virginians to the inauguration.

In his monthly radio show Thursday on WRVA and the Virginia News Network, Kaine said the state would have done the same for any president-elect expecting a huge inauguration crowd. Kaine also said the transportation help for Virginians was appropriate because some routes into Washington were closed for security reasons.

About 75,000 people rode buses at state expense. Kaine said Virginia is seeking reimbursement from the federal government.

Kaine's excuse that "well, we would have done this for any inauguration" is a lame and pathetic one. Show us when this was done previously, Tim.

I find it funny that these liberals can lecture businesses about buying airplanes, bonuses, yet they are addicted to taxpayer money and will spend it on partisan political boondoggles like Tim Kaines' DNC Bus Trip to the Inauguration.

If this had been a Republican governor doing this for George W. Bush's swearing-in, these same liberals would be calling for a crucifixion.

Instead of the federal government paying the state back, Tim, why don't you use DNC money to reimburse the state?

Great Analysis From Across The Ocean: Deny "That One" His One Party State

Gerald Warner in the UK Telegraph has a great analysis of the fight against the Socialist "SINO" Bill, and the unanimous Republican dissent in the House against it.

It was also crucially important to say "No" to Obama - so few people do these days. The royal visit with which the Man of Destiny honoured his congressional opponents, in an effort to coax them into complicity without making concessions, showed how badly he wanted this big present to himself wrapped in a bi-partisan ribbon. It is a useful rule of thumb for Republicans that anything Obama wants that they have the power to deny, should be denied.

To see the greatest pluralist democracy on earth being herded by its media into a cultish adoration of a man who is determinedly converting it into the successor state of the Soviet Union is thoroughly alarming. As America goes, so goes the world. In that sense, the battered Republican Party is fighting for all of us across the globe who reject socialism. Obama wanted Republican support because totalitarians cannot brook opposition: it offends them morally and even aesthetically.

It is the GOP's responsibility to deny him the one-party state he seeks in the name of consensus. A properly ordered congress would display the unanimity of the Supreme Soviet. Freeborn American citizens, thanks to their media, are as wary of voicing public dissent from the Obama cult as people were of being the first to stop applauding Stalin during one of his 10-minute ovations.

The Senate Republicans may be more of a pushover, but one must hope not, unless in return for some huge concession. This stimulus package is full of thinly concealed bribes, most notoriously the $4.19 billion handout for "neighborhood stabilization activities" that will benefit groups such as the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), accused of widespread electoral misconduct and already the beneficiary of more than $70 million from taxpayers. At least we know Barack Obama is a man who repays his debts.
The Senate needs to hear from more of us. Unfortunately, the "Gang of 14" is beginning to rear their ugly heads again, in an effort to screw America in the name of bipartisanship.
That is unacceptable. This bill is not in the best interests of the American people. Only a small fraction of the funds will go towards "infrastructure" projects, meaning "so much" for stimulating the economy. And what about all that money going to ACORN and other liberal groups?
RedState and others are starting a project to help Republican Senator Mitch McConnell (who barely won re-election) "find his balls."

There's a lot of GOP members in the Senate who "don't have a pair." They need to be reminded they work for us, not for "That One."

Obama Calls Wall Street Bonuses "Shameful," Yet Lavishly Parties Over Passage Of Socialist "SINO" Bill

File this in the "Do As I Say, Not As I Do" department.

President Barack Obama had one reaction to the story today about bonuses for banking executives benefiting from the $700-billion federal bailout already in progress.

"Outrageous'' - that's the word from White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs.

"Shameful'' -- that's the word from Obama himself.

..."When I saw an article today indicating that Wall Street bankers had given themselves $20 billion worth of bonuses -- the same amount of bonuses as they gave themselves in 2004 -- at a time when most of these institutions were teetering on collapse and they are asking for taxpayers to help sustain them, and when taxpayers find themselves in the difficult position that if they don't provide help that the entire system could come down on top of our heads -- that is the height of irresponsibility,'' Obama said, with Geithner by his side. "It is shameful.

"Part of what we're going to need is for folks on Wall Street who are asking for help to show some restraint and show some discipline and show some sense of responsibility,'' the president said. "The American people understand that we've got a big hole that we've got to dig ourselves out of -- but they don't like the idea that people are digging a bigger hole even as they're being asked to fill it up."

Now, as a taxpayer who is watching more of our money going to bailout these firms, part of me would agree to a certain extent. The problem I have is with how Obama and his spokesmouths said it, as well as the double standards shown by Mr. Obama last night.

When his party, the Democrat Socialists, voted to mortgage the future of our grandchildren by passing the Socialist "SINO" (Stimulous In Name Only) Bill, Mr. "Show Some Restraint & Sense of Responsibility" Obama partied heartily on our dime, according to Michelle Malkin.

Can the Obama administration be anymore tone deaf? After pushing his $1.1 trillion Generational Theft Act of 2009 through the House last night, the White House apparently decided to throw itself a swank cocktail party. According to ABC’s Jake Tapper, the menu included alcoholic beverages (vodka martinis are an Obama favorite, reportedly) and wagyu steak.
Yeah, “wagyu steak.” $100 per serving delicacy. I had to look it up, too.
$100 per wagyu steak (don't ask me, I've never heard of it) and all the liquor for "That One" to celebrate putting America on the fast track to socialism on our dime.

MM also reminds us this is on the heels of the most expensive Inauguration ceremony, which the liberals didn't complain about, especially since it isn't George W. Bush's Inaurgual. You know, those 600 corporate jets parked not far away at Dulles Airport.

I thought liberals had a problem with corporate jets? Not when it comes to the Obama's. Expensive is their taste. Remember Michelle O's snack tab at the Waldorf Hysteria?

$447 for a snack? Give me a $5 bucket of Breyer's Ice Cream and I'm happy.

Or Barack's penchant for arugula?

While the rest of us are supposed to "eat cake."

TREASON: Report Claims Obama Began Talks With Al Queda Before Election

According to a story in World Tribune, President Barack Hussein Sotero Obama began backdoor talks with the group who attacked America on September 11, 2001 before being elected President.
WASHINGTON — Barack Obama was working with Arab intermediaries to establish an unofficial dialogue with Al Qaida long before his election as the 44th U.S. president, according to a report in the upcoming weekly edition of

Al Qaida has offered what has been described as a truce in exchange for a U.S. military ithdrawal from Afghanistan, according to the report.

Obama has deemed the U.S. reconciliation with the Muslim world, including Iran, as his main foreign policy goal, sources quoted in the report said. The president has been aided by several Persian Gulf Arab Muslims with ties to Al Qaida's leadership in Pakistan, they said.

...Subsequently, in his first television interview as president, with the Saudi-owned Al Arabiya satellite channel on Jan. 26, Obama spoke about his own ties to the Muslim world:

"Now, my job is to communicate the fact that the United States has a stake in the well-being of the Muslim world, that the language we use has to be a language of respect," Obama said . "I have Muslim members of my family. I have lived in Muslim countries."

"My job to the Muslim world is to communicate that the Americans are not your enemy — we sometimes make mistakes — we have not been perfect," Obama said.

In other words, Obama is apologizing for the nation he leads for acting as The Ugly Americans. Great, we went from a Commander in Chief in George W. Bush to a Panderer in Chief in Obama.

It is any wonder that he has changed his mind about his campaign pledge to kill bin Laden? Don't forget, either, what Mr. Obama wrote in his book The Audacity of Hope.

“In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans … have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging....I will stand with them (Muslims) should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”
And not on the side of Americans, Mr. Sotero-Obama?

If these reports prove to be true, Mr. Obama is a criminal who has broken the following law in the US Code, 18 U.S.C. Section 953, Private correspondence with foreign governments.
Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both. This section shall not abridge the right of a citizen to apply, himself or his agent, to any foreign government or the agents thereof for redress of any injury which he may have sustained from such government or any of its agents or subjects.
This is an act of treason against this nation! If this report is true, Obama has abandoned his oath of office, the security of the American people and his role as Commander in Chief of our armed forces for a blind faith of goodwill towards the Islamofascist scum who murdered 3,000 people on 9/11.

I want Mr. Obama to explain this to a family member of a 9/11 victim. God forbid another attack on America should happen, Mr. Obama will have a hard time explaining to the families of the victims why he chose to coddle our enemies and refused to protect our citizens.

As DC Area Shuts Down Due To Ice Storm, Algore Comes To Tell Congress "The Sky Is Falling"

Gateway Pundit writes about "Chicken Little" Algore making an appearance in Congress today to spread more fearmongering about Glo-BULL Warming.

Personally, I'd have loved to have had this jerkoff come talk to me this morning about Glo-BULL Warming as I spent 30 minutes picking through a thick sheet of ice on my car windows (with the defrost on), while doing my best not to slip on the iced-over parking lot.

Democrats Pass Socialist Stimulus Bill, Entire House GOP Gets A Pair & Opposes It

Showing how insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting a different result, the Democrat-led House passed an $825 billion Socialist "Stimulus In Name Only" Bill mean to revive the nation's economy.

But when the economy continues to falter even more and our deficit grows higher, you can blame the Democrat Party entirely for it. Because, the House GOP heard our voices, showed some leadership (for a change) and voted against this waste of taxpayer money.
President Barack Obama scored his first major legislative victory on Wednesday with passage of an $825 billion economic stimulus package by a sharply divided House of Representatives.

Obama, who took office eight days ago, was denied, at least for now, his goal of bipartisanship. Favoring instead more tax cuts and less spending, every Republican voted against the landmark bill to combat the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, while all but a handful of Obama's fellow Democrats supported it.

With Obama's fellow Democrats rallying behind him, the House approved one of the most expensive bills ever, 244-188. Senate debate is expected to begin within days.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat, said Obama sought bold and swift action and "that is exactly what action we are taking today."

What is that, Nancy Nine-Percent? The mortgaging of my grandchildren's future? (Note, I'm no where near having grandchildren).

As far as this being "the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression," it is not. We are nowhere near Great Depression levels. That is liberal fear-mongering.

Michelle Malkin sums it up best.
Own it. Embrace it. Swallow it. The House version of the $1.1 trillion Generational Theft Act of 2009 is all the Democrats’ doing now.

Not one Republican voted for it. (1 Republican had to leave early).

177 Republicans and 11 Democrats opposed.

No bending over today.

Finally. A party of opposition worth its name.

A View From The Great White North Of The Obamessiah

A column being quoted as having appeared in the London Daily Mail but actually appeared in the Toronto Sun is making the rounds around the Internet (hat tip, Leza).

A young student friend e-mailed me on Tuesday night.

"Have locked myself in my room because the place is full of little idiots -- who cannot spell Barack Obama's name and could not name one of his foreign or domestic policies -- running around screaming obscenities about George Bush, conservatives and how Sarah Palin is a bitch. I love democracy!"

Even so, the people spoke. A victory for the hysterical Oprah Winfrey, the mad racist preacher Jeremiah Wright, the mainstream media who abandoned any sense of objectivity long ago, Europeans who despise America largely because they depend on her, comics who claim to be dangerous and fearless but would not dare attack genuinely powerful special interest groups. A victory for Obama-worshippers everywhere.

A victory for the cult of the cult. A man who has done little with his life but has written about his achievements as if he had found the cure for cancer in between winning a marathon and building a nuclear reactor with his teeth. Victory for style over substance, hyperbole over history, rabble-raising over reality.

A victory for Hollywood, the most dysfunctional community in the world. Victory for Streisand, Spielberg, Soros and Sarandon.

Victory for those who prefer welfare to will and interference to independence. For those who settle for group think and herd mentality rather than those who fight for individual initiative and the right to be out of step with meagre political fashion.

Victory for a man who is no friend of freedom. He and his people have already stated that media has to be controlled so as to be balanced, without realizing the extraordinary irony within that statement. Like most liberal zealots, the Obama worshippers constantly speak of Fox and Limbaugh, when the vast bulk of television stations and newspapers are drastically liberal and anti-conservative.

Senior Democrat Chuck Schumer said that just as pornography should be censored, so should talk radio. In other words, one of the few free and open means of popular expression may well be cornered and beaten by bullies who even in triumph cannot tolerate any criticism and opposition.


A victory for those who believe the state is better qualified to raise children than the family, for those who prefer teachers' unions to teaching and for those who are naively convinced that if the West is sufficiently weak towards its enemies, war and terror will dissolve as quickly as the tears on the face of a leftist celebrity.

A victory for social democracy even after most of Europe has come to the painful conclusion that social democracy leads to mediocrity, failure, unemployment, inflation, higher taxes and economic stagnation. A victory for intrusive lawyers, banal sentimentalists, social extremists and urban snobs.

Also a defeat for one of the weakest presidential candidates in living

...Most of all it was a terrible defeat for democracy and the United States. A politician of nothing defeated a nothing politician and a credulous electorate screamed in adoration. I fear we will all suffer very much indeed.

As the bumper sticker said, "Our Long National Nightmare Has Begun." God help us!

Democrats Once Again Attack Opinions Of Private Citizen (Rush Limbaugh) To Pimp For Campaign Cash

Instead of promoting ideas of their own, the Democrat Party is once again attacking the free speech rights of Rush Limbaugh, a private citizen, for the sole purpose of raising campaign cash.

From CNSNews:
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has launched an online petition for readers to express their outrage at conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh for saying last week that he wanted President Barack Obama to fail.

The petition includes a 19-second sound byte of Limbaugh, saying, “If I wanted Obama to succeed, I’d be happy the Republicans have laid down. I don’t want this to work. So I’m thinking of replying to this guy, say ‘okay, I’ll send you a response, but I don’t need 400 words, I need four: I hope he fails.’”

Meanwhile, Obama advised Republicans last Friday to stop listening to Limbaugh if they wanted to get along with Democrats and the administration.

At least one Eunuch Republican, Phil Gingrey of Georgia, is ready to roll over and fetch for Mr. Obama (Politico).
"I think that our leadership, Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, are taking the right approach,” Gingrey said. “I mean, it’s easy if you’re Sean Hannity or Rush Limbaugh or even sometimes Newt Gingrich to stand back and throw bricks. You don’t have to try to do what’s best for your people and your party. You know you’re just on these talk shows and you’re living well and plus you stir up a bit of controversy and gin the base and that sort of that thing. But when it comes to true leadership, not that these people couldn’t be or wouldn’t be good leaders, they’re not in that position of John Boehner or Mitch McConnell."

If that's the route you plan to take, Mr. Gingrey, then get used to minority party status. The "Democrat-Lite" version of the GOP has lost seats in both houses, despite the antics of Nine-Percent Nancy Pelosi and Dingy Harry Reid. John McLame, the liberal's favorite Republican, didn't win over many crossover votes with his RINO credentials. If it wasn't for Sarah Palin, a real conservative, McLame would have been handed a landslide defeat from Obama.

As for the Democrats, I find it funny they are threatened by the opinion of a private citizen. It's a prelude to a more frightening scenario, the Fairness Doctrine and censorship of dissenting opinions on the Internet.

There's the hypocrisy factor as well. After all, it was the entire Democrat Party and grassroots who did everything they could to hinder George W. Bush's Presidency so that they could capitalize politically.

I agree with Rush. If socialism and appeasement are Mr. Obama's policies, then yes, I want him to fail as well (and fail he will).

So put that in your pipe and smoke it, Dems!

Protest Scheduled For Unrepentant Domestic Terrorist Bill Ayers Appearance At California College

If you are anywhere near St. Mary's College in Moraga, CA this Wednesday night between 6 and 8:30 p.m., please go down there to protest the appearance of unrepentant domestic terrorist (and friend of President Barack Hussein Obama) Bill Ayers.

Yes, it is a disgrace of all disgraces. A Catholic University will have Ayers, a piece of 1960's scum who set off bombs across the country to protest the Vietnam War who stated he has "no regrets" and "didn't do enough," as a paid speaker.

More information is available at or at The Simple Justice, Not Social Justice Coalition.

Melanie Morgan writes:
A parent of two students at St. Mary's has contacted me with this email:

"...I spoke this morning with Michael Bessea (sic?), a Vice President at St. Mary’s. The upshot of the conversation was his acknowledgment that the college has unnecessarily created a controversy with a poor choice in speakers. He told me that Ayers was invited by a faculty committee without input from the rest of the faculty. He has received numerous protests from students, parents and faculty apparently. Bessea admitted that Ayers is being paid, but declined to state the amount."

St. Mary's is being flooded with emails, so keep the pressure up!

Here is an arrogant response from St. Mary's President, Bro. Ronald Gallagher, as posted in the FR thread.
Some have called on me or the College to rescind or overrule the January Term leadership’s invitation to Professor Ayers. To do so would be to undermine the educational principles and values upon which our College is based. Institutions of higher education serve society and their local communities by providing a place for opinions and ideas of all types to be examined, questioned and discussed. It is in these “academic cities” that the arts of reason and of inquiry, the fruits of the liberal arts, are brought to bear on the controversial issues of today and of all time. For students, faculty members and the public, colleges provide a special opportunity to step away from the often overheated and polarized rhetoric of contemporary culture and examine difficult and controversial issues in the somewhat cooler light of reason.

As a College with a Great Books tradition, we have a responsibility to defend the rights of those with controversial viewpoints to speak. To live up to our great tradition, we must remain an academic community where the free and open discussion of ideas, even those with which we strongly disagree, is possible.

Let me be clear, I strongly disagree with many of Professor Ayers past actions, statements and viewpoints; nevertheless, I support the January Term Committee’s right to invite him to the College, and will insist that he is treated with the respect and courtesy all of our invited academic speakers deserve. Professor Ayers has indicated that he will take questions after his address. I am certain that our students, faculty and staff members will raise probing, difficult and thoughtful questions.

Utter arrogance from Left-wing college administrators! Hey Bro. Gallagher, it is one thing to have a controversial speaker and defend their right to speak. It is another thing entirely to have an unrepentant domestic terrorist defending his anti-Americanism as well as his contempt for this nation, our government and military while masquerading as an "academic." Setting off bombs is not the same as being a controversial speaker.

May I remind you also, Bro. Gallagher, that one of the bombs made by Ayers' group, the Weather Underground, was intended to be set off at a non-commissioned officers dance at Ft. Dix, New Jersey.

Domestic terrorists like Ayers do not deserve "courtesy" or "respect," nor the money given by alumni and parents of your college. Instead, they deserve ridicule, our contempt as well as a dingy prison cell at the very least.

If you can't make it to the protest or aren't anywhere in the area, here's the contact information.

Obama Approval Rating Drops 15 Points In One Week

Where's A(O)P, CNN, ABC, NBC, See BS, USA Today, The Washington ComPost, New York Slimes and the other members of the Obama MSM to report this story?

From the UK Daily Mail: After less than a week in office, Barack Obama's approval rating plunges 15 points

Barack Obama might have been in office for less than a week, but the euphoria is beginning to wane.

The new President's approval ratings have fallen from a stratospheric 83 per cent to a more modest - although still impressive - 68 per cent.

Washington analysts said the scale of the drop in the Gallup poll underlines the immense challenges Mr Obama faces in trying to turn round the U.S.'s battered fortunes.

It appears some in the overseas media are willing to look at what our domestic MSM does not want to see. There's a whole lot of us who aren't enamored of Mr. Obama and many more who are beginning to have buyers remorse.

Associated (with Obama) Press Decrees Obama Not Divisive Figure Like Bush...Oh Really?

The slobbering Associated (with Obama) Press passed off the following, wet-kiss of an opinion piece as a news story on President Barack Hussein Obama's first week in office.

WASHINGTON – Barack Obama opened his presidency by breaking sharply from George W. Bush's unpopular administration, but he mostly avoided divisive partisan and ideological stands. He focused instead on fixing the economy, repairing a battered world image and cleaning up government.
Oh really, A(O)P? What about the closing of Guantanamo Bay and putting the protection of Al-Queda terrorists over the safety of Americans? With the exception of a FOX News story published here earlier, several stories (here, here and here) at 9/11 Families for a Safe & Secure America and Melanie Morgan's great piece at WND, the adoring Obama MSM couldn't be bothered to see how Obama's coddling of terrorists is very upsetting to many Americans who were affected on 9/11 and many more of us who are concerned about the safety of our families and the nation.

Far from "avoiding divisiveness" Obama rubbed his victory in the face of the House GOP the other day, even going as far as telling them they should "stop listening to Rush Limbaugh." (Here's El Rushbo's response at NRO).

A new member of That One's cabinet, Hillary Rotten Clinton, echoed the "no divisiveness" them, even told her new employees at the State Department, "This is a team, and you are the members of that team," she said. "We are not any longer going to tolerate the kind of divisiveness that has paralyzed and undermined our ability to get things done for America."

Rewind back to April 2003, when Hillary Rotten did her best Joan Crawford "No Wire Coathangers" impersonation, saying.
"I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow you're not patriotic. We should stand up and say, we are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration."

Do you see the theme? During the Bush years, dissent was "patriotic" and the cornerstone of a good democracy, we were told. No one denied this. In fact, many of us (including this blog) questioned and were extremely critical of many Bush Administration proposals (Dubai Ports, amnesty for illegal immigrants). What we had a problem with was people who claimed the President "lied" without offering specific proof or were opposed (for partisan purposes) to the War on Terror and Iraq War, after being on the side of it when it was done under the Clinton Administration.

Now, since a Democrat is president, the media (including the local liberal rag The Fairfax Times) have written about the new "national unity" and "end of divisiveness." Who said the country was so united and behind Mr. Obama? The liberal media said so, simply because one of their own was elected (with their help). It wasn't George W. Bush who was "divisive," it was the media, liberal activists and Democrat politicians who went on a scorched earth campaign against him for eight years (not that Bush didn't help matters by angering conservatives many times). Now that they're in charge, their media lapdogs are telling us all to shut up, get in line and goosestep to the drumbeat of the Democrats.

Fat chance! We as Americans must be critical and loudly oppose Obama's big government, liberal New New Deal and emergence as one who pals around with terrorists to coddling them. Furthermore, the adoring Obama media should be exposed, held up to ridicule and looked at with even more suspicion as they are the new PR agency for this left-wing government twenty minutes down the road.

NIMBY Pelosi Says No To Gitmo Detainees At Alcatraz

Why is this bit of liberal hypocrisy not suprising (FOX News)?
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday shrugged off Republican suggestions that the federal government reopen Alcatraz prison in her San Francisco district to house detainees from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

President Obama this week signed an executive order calling for the closure of the prison at Guantanamo within the year. Republican Rep. Bill Young then suggested to White House counsel Greg Craig that the prisoners who could not be released back to their home countries or sent to a third country be put up in "the Rock," the famous military installation and prison that closed down in 1963 and is now part of the National Park Service.

Asked whether that was a serious proposal, Pelosi said, "It is -- no."

"Perhaps he's not visited Alcatraz," Pelosi said of Young while displaying little sense of humor. "Alcatraz is a tourist attraction. It's a prison that is now sort of like a -- it's a national park."

That explanation didn't stop House Minority Leader John Boehner from repeating the suggestion on Sunday, making that point that closing down Guantanamo by year's end may not be the best plan considering the recidivism rate of terrorist detainees is about 12 percent.

"If liberals believe they ought to go, maybe we ought to open Alcatraz," Boehner, R-Ohio, told NBC "Meet the Press." Being reminded that Alcatraz is a national park, Boehner responded, "It's very secure."

That's actually a pretty good idea. Since the liberals (especially in the Bay Area) love and support these Islmaofascist terrorists so much, why not put them in their backyard? Why should Pelosi and the Bay Area Left not welcome these people they've championed.

"Not in my backyard" is the typical response from a Bay Area lib like Pelosi.

Jihad Gerry Connolly's Supress the Vote Campaign For Electing His Replacement: Democrats Vote Feb. 3; Republicans Vote Feb. 10

Jihad Gerry Connolly was caught on camera in a "supress the GOP vote" campaign in the special election to elect his successor as Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Chairman (from Not Larry Sabato, via Black Velvet Bruce Li).

Can you imagine the howls of protest if this was a Republican elected official saying this about the election of his replacement? I guess Connolly wants to make sure the Democrats can continue his work of keeping Fairfax County a sanctuary county, keeping the extremist Saudi Islamic Academy open (and calling its critics "bigots"), as well as keeping the county financially mismanaged.

BVBL also has the following contact info for Connolly to complain about his tactics.

If for nothing else he will need to take the voices of the voters seriously. The telephone number at Connolly’s district office is 703-256-3071 and at his DC office it is 202-225-1492. Or contact Connolly via e-mail at
You can also foil the Democrats attempt to keep the seat by going to the polls February 3rd (the right day to go to the polls) and vote for Pat Herrity.

Obama Media Silent On "That One" Blowing Off "Salute to Heroes" Ball

Barack Hussein Sotero Obama and his wife Michelle found time to make several Inauarugal Balls Tuesday night.

Fourteen balls, except for the "Salute to Heroes" Ball, as reported by This Ain't Hell. It was also the first time in 56 years that the POTUS did not attend this ball, which salutes living recipients of the Congressional Medal of Honor.

In a follow-up post, Jonn at TAH writes that:
Immediately, the first wave of believers applauded, the second wave was the unbelievers. They fanned out across the internet and attacked the story wherever it popped up. Some leftist bloggers accused us of deleting comments (not realizing that I don’t sit here 24 hours every day monitoring the spam and spam-like comments) then the doubters did their superficial Google searches and determined 1) the ball was canceled so we were lying, or 2) the ball was merged with another one so we were lying, or 3) Obama did come to the ball so we were lying, or 4) so what?

But there was a ball, and the information is true, and is it no surprise that the Adoring Obama MSM has ignored the story?

Obama's actions this week in surrendering the War on Terror, and snubbing living Medal of Honor winners speaks chapers of his lack of character and how the media will defend him.

Obama Completely Surrenders War on Terror

The War on Terror is officially over, according to this story from the Washington Compost (via LGF).
Key components of the secret structure developed under Bush are being swept away: The military’s Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, facility, where the rights of habeas corpus and due process had been denied detainees, will close, and the CIA is now prohibited from maintaining its own overseas prisons. And in a broad swipe at the Bush administration’s lawyers, Obama nullified every legal order and opinion on interrogations issued by any lawyer in the executive branch after Sept. 11, 2001.

Another story from LGF illustrates the status of one former Gitmo detainee, who is now the second in command in the Yemen branch of al-Queda.

CAIRO, Egypt – A Saudi man released from Guantanamo after spending nearly six years inside the U.S. prison camp is now the No. 2 of Yemen’s al-Qaida branch, according to a purported Internet statement from the terror network.

The announcement, made this week on a Web site commonly used by militants, came as President Barack Obama ordered the detention facility closed within a year. Many of the remaining detainees are from Yemen, which has long posed a vexing terrorism problem for the U.S.

The terror group’s Yemen branch — known as “al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula” — said the man, identified as Said Ali al-Shihri, returned to his home in Saudi Arabia after his release from Guantanamo about a year ago and from there went to Yemen, which is Osama bin Laden’s ancestral home.

Way to go, Mr. Hussein Sotero Obama! So the next time al-Queda strikes the United States, you liberals will not be able to blame Bush for it. Obama will own any future attack on this nation and the blood of Americans who are killed from it.

McCain & Lapdog Lindsey Grahamnesty Support Amnesty for Al-Queda Terrorists

A joint statement, found at
“We support President Obama’s decision to close the prison at Guantanamo, reaffirm America’s adherence to the Geneva Conventions, and begin a process that will, we hope, lead to the resolution of all cases of Guantanamo detainees,” said Senator Lindsey Graham and Senator John McCain. “The executive orders issued today constitute an important step in the right direction but leave several major issues unaddressed.”

Where is the leadership in the Republican Party? Until one appears, don't count on me for fundraising or to support eunuch candidates, GOP!

If we do nothing else in 2010, we should make sure and do two things. First make sure Harry Reid in defeated in Nevada and finally, run a (real) conservative in Arizona against McCain and defeat him in the primaries.

It's time for John McLame to be sent backing to live off Cindy's beer money.

Obamabots Litter National Mall On Inauguration Day

Interesting video taken on the National Mall on Tuesday, Inauguration Day.

Keep in mind this litter is from a crowd who believes as Mr. Obama does about the hoax known as Glo-BULL Warming and want to tell us what kind of car to drive. Yet they are the ones who cannot be called upon to clean up after themselves.

IMPEACH OBAMA: Obama Will Sign Order To Close Gitmo, Go Easy On Al-Queda Interrogations, Halts Trial of 9/11 Mastermind

Putting terrorist security ahead of American security. From Yahoo News: Obama to limit CIA, order Guantanamo Closed

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama is ready to issue orders on Thursday to close Guantanamo prison and overhaul the treatment of terrorism suspects, in a swift move to restore a U.S. image hurt by charges of torture.

A draft executive order obtained by Reuters on Wednesday sets a one-year deadline to close the controversial U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, where foreign terrorism suspects have been detained for years without trial.

Obama, who was sworn in as president on Tuesday, is expected to issue the order on Guantanamo on Thursday. He will also ban abusive interrogations and order a review of detention policies for captured militants, said congressional aides and a White House official.
Today, Obama also halted all trials at Gitmo, including that of 9/11 mastermind and the scumbag who beheaded Daniel Pearl (UK Times Online).

Hours after being sworn in as US President, Barack Obama has called for a halt to Guantanamo war crimes tribunals, a move which will begin the long awaited process of dismantling the prison itself.

His request for a 120-day suspension of all 21 pending tribunals will bring to a halt the case against Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the self-proclaimed 9/11 mastermind and four co-defendants who faced the death penalty if convicted.
Per FOX News, 9/11 Families are outraged at "That One" for taking the side of the people who murdered their family members.

I'm officially making the call this evening: Read it below liberals!

Mr. Obama is putting the feelings of ACLU pussies, the trial lawyers (heavy contributors to the Democrat Party of Treason), the limp-wristed Euro-weenies, the liberal Left worldwide and the Muslim street ahead of the security and lives of you and I, the American people. He is showing weakness to these Islamofascist terrorists, in the delusion that it will win "hearts and minds."

It will not.

In the process of closing Gitmo, Obama is showing contempt for the service of our finest who wear the uniform of our military, by giving credence to the propaganda by the terrorists and their apologists. Make no mistake. Obama's contempt for this nation's security and our military only invites another terrorist attack on this nation.

How many more Americans have to be killed before you liberals wake up and realize that George W. Bush did not start this war? That Islamofascists have been at war with this nation for the better part of 30 years.

This is TREASON!

This is not about Democrat vs. Republican. This is not about sour grapes over his winning the election (like it was for you liberals in 2000). This is about him turning his back on his constitutional duty to protect this nation. He is protecting the people who want to kill more Americans or wipe out an American city, so the whole world will think nice of him.

Barack HUSSEIN Sotero Obama should be impeached.

Green Bay, WI Liberal Teachers Whine About Limbaugh's Exercise of Free Speech

I just listened to Rush Limbaugh during my lunch, talk about some liberal government school teachers in Green Bay, WI whine to radio station WTAQ about Rush Limbaugh's exercise of free speech in critiquing the Inaugural Address of President Barack Hussein Obama.

Apparently, in the minds of a liberal, free speech is verboten when it comes to The Messiah. However, it is OK to heckle President Bush like spoiled children as he leaves Washington. It is OK when a so-called "minister" uses the invocation as a time for race-baiting, as That One (Mr. Obama) smiled in agreement. Let me remind you that Mr. Obama campaigned on the image of being a "uniter" who would bridge the divide in this nation.

To the school teachers in question, spare me your hypocritical outrage! May I remind you that for eight years we have had nothing but mean-spirited, vicious, personal attacks on former President Bush, his family as well as his dogs. He has had movies, books and "artwork" made about his assassination. Not only that, our military has been mocked, attacked and (in many cases) assaulted by these same liberals. This was during a time of war, after our nation had been attacked.

And we were told all during those eight years that these kind of vicious, personal attacks were "dissent" and the highest form a patriotism.

Now, after eight years of your lack of class and civility, you liberals want to get your panties in a knot over a person's right to criticize the incoming President's speech?

Excuse me while I don't feel the least bit sorry for you. You've reaped what you've sown, or, in the words of Mr. Obama's minister, your "chickens have come home to roost!"

UPDATE: More from FOX-11 WLUK:
GRREN BAY - As President Barack Obama made history, students at Edison Middle School in Green Bay, heard commentary from conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh.

"There it is folks. There it is. History in the making, with a botched oath," Limbaugh said during his coverage of the inauguration.

Limbaugh's show airs in Green Bay on WTAQ-AM. That's the radio station Edison Middle School hooked up to the PA system so students could listen to the inauguration.

"We were looking at each other open-mouthed like who is doing this? Nobody should be doing this. And the principal came on and said it was inappropriate," said Edison 6th grader Anna Ziemendorf who had never heard of Rush Limbaugh before.

After realizing the WTAQ broadcast was Rush Limbaugh's show, the school did switch to a different radio station for the majority of the inauguration.

Anna's mother could not believe Limbaugh made his comments during the inauguration. "Rush has got his show. He can make those comments anytime regarding it if he chooses to," said Mary Ziemendorf.

Anna's teacher, Amanda Griggs, was also upset with what happened. Griggs declined our request for an interview but in a voicemail she left with WTAQ said, "I'm very very disappointed you allowed this to happen. I'm disappointed in his choice to take a wonderful moment of history and to taint it the way he did."

"Twelve people (all liberals probably, M.I.M) called and were upset with what happened. Thousands of people listen to Rush Limbaugh," said WTAQ program director Jerry Bader, who actually agrees with Griggs that Limbaugh's comments were disrespectful.

However, Bader said he did not believe the comments were bigoted or hateful.

Excuse me, Amanda Griggs, as well as your liberal principal, but did free speech suddenly end on January 20, 2009? It never ended on other such days.

Here is Rush's monologue on the subject. Brian Maloney at Radio Equalizer reports on radio stations "self-censoring" Rush's comments.

Billy Boyle, who commented below, points to Jerry Bader's blog at WTAQ for his reaction.

More government school censoring of Obama criticism. In Dayton, Ohio, the superintendent of schools sent an e-mail stating that inappropriate comments "would not be tolerated." Question for liberal Superintendent Kevin Bright, how do you define "inappropriate comments" and did you make a similar announcement during President Bush's two inaugurations?

Classless Obama Liberals Jeer Bush, Bigoted Rev. Lowery Uses Inaugural Prayer For Racebaiting, Code Pinko Given Front Row Seats & Dow Jones Tanks

Change you can believe in?

Dow Jones drops 309 points. The WORST Inauguration Day showing since records have been kept.

Could it be that Obama's speech fell short of the goal line? Alex Spillius at the UK Telegraph thinks so.
QUITE a day, but not much of speech unfortunately. Obama got where he is by speechifying, but this effort would not have won him many votes. It was his worst on a grand stage, though still better than most politicians could muster.

The delivery, as ever, was first class, but the message was wasn't clear enough and the language not insufficiently inspiring.

As soon as the applause had died down, an African American standing man near me on the Mall said to his friend: "I thought the speech was shit." Another woman said, correctly, that "we had heard it all before at other events".
Calling the inaugural address "disappointing," The National Catholic Weekly said:
President Barack Obama’s inaugural address was surprisingly leaden. It did not soar like his "Yes, We Can" speech after losing the New Hampshire primary, nor did it chart his plans for governance as did his convention speech in Denver. Most strangely, it did not seem to capture the history of the moment the way his election night speech did.

...Sitting here not three hours since the speech was given, it is sad to think that I can’t recall a single line from memory. I suppose almost any collection of words was likely to be dwarfed by the historical enormity of the moment. And such a moment it was.
Even David Gergen was not moved:

CNN senior political analyst David Gergen sounded a bit let down by President Barack Obama's inaugural speech.
"It was not as lofty as I would have anticipated," said Gergen, noting that Obama had visited sites such as the Lincoln Memorial for inspiration. He said that while previous presidents had given inaugural speeches "speaking to the ages," Obama's speech "was speaking to this generation. It was very rooted in the here and now."
The Obama liberals showed their lack of class by heckling President Bush as he left for Texas. The same could be said of another Bush-basher, the Rev. Joseph Lowery (who used the occasion of Coretta Scott King's funeral to attack Bush, who was in attendance) sounded like the second coming of Jeremiah Wright in his invocation, when he said:

“We ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around, when yellow will be mellow, when the red man can get ahead, man; and when white will embrace what is right.
A racist "prayer" in which Mr. Obama smiled in agreement.

I thought "That One" was supposed to bring "unity" and "change." Appears to be more of the same divisive and classless rhetoric, all from liberals.

Speaking of divisive, two of the Code Pinko hags were sitting near the front of the stage. I guess it pays to have a co-founder as a $50,000 bundler.

It's going to be a long four years.

Ridicule The Obasmic Celebrities? Count Me In

Andrew Breitbart writes a great column about mocking the celebrity idiots. Yes, the same ones who spent the last eight years frothing at the mouth with Bush Derangement Syndrome who are now pleasuring themselves over the arrival of "That One."

Many of the celebrities that were central to demonizing and making life impossible for President Bush for eight loathsome years NOW want to help with the heavy lifting of bringing America back together under President Barack Obama.

Witness Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher’s cavalcade of shiny, happy situational patriots appearing in a derivative public servitude announcement: A “Presidential Pledge” to President Barack Obama.

Forgive and forget? Right.

President Bush was not holding back Moore from “free[ing] one million people from slavery in the next five years.” Nor was he holding back the Obama-biquitous Will.I.Am from “chang[ing] how [he] live[s].” Ditto: Aaron Ekhart (”To be a better person,”) Marisa Tomei (”To integrate into my heart what I already know in my head which is that we are all in this together,”) Kutcher (”To the abolition to 21st century slavery,”) Anthony Kiedis (”To be of service to Barack Obama,”) P. Diddy (”pledge to turn the lights off, cause I used to leave the lights on but we want to conserve energy so I’ma turn the lights off, you turn the lights off,) and all-in-unison (”Because together we can, together we are, and together we will be the change that we seek.”)

Missing are pledges not to kiss the ring of Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez and other pledged enemies of America. Nor are there pledges not to make movies that glorify these tyrants. Nor are there pledges to take seriously that we are at war, will continue to be at war under President Obama and that our precious and under-appreciated military is fighting an avowed and evil enemy — so that, among other things, Hollywood can continue to make decadent crap that actually motivates our enemy to fight us harder!

Unfortunately, what happens in Hollywood does not stay in Hollywood.

For more mind-numbing background read Kutcher’s companion piece at the… you got it… the Huffington Post .

The conservatives, Republicans and sundry non-lefties I know in show business have had nothing to say but positive and helpful things about the coming Obama presidency.

“We wish him well.” “He is our president now and he needs our help.”

These are the types of things I keep hearing.

And this is exactly the right attitude and exactly the right message.

God bless, President Obama. Even though I didn’t vote for him, and disagree with much of his agenda, he has my best wishes and all of my best efforts.

But that doesn’t mean I will forgive and forget an era of narcissism, petty complaining and conspiracy theory peddling from the majority celebrity class that began well before Iraq. [See "Hollywood, Interrupted " -- my book co-written with Mark Ebner -- which was written before and during the build-up to the Iraq war and before the WMDs weren't found. The public behavior from Hollywood even then was almost uniformly deplorable.]

Conspiracy theories of America’s complicity in 9/11 dominated cocktail party discussions for eight tedious years. They couldn’t simply disagree with Bush. They had to ascribe evil to his motivations and make sure the whole world agreed on that flawed premise.

Yet, hating the president doesn’t mean one can’t still help out the country in a great time of need. But many went to foreign countries and demeaned it instead. Called those that disagreed with them rubes and hicks. The elitism of the celebrities against flyover country America could not have been more pronounced. They made a boat-load of movies that affirmed this narrow and patronizing world view.

And now they want us back.

We’re all Americans — NOW.

It’s a convenient lie the celebrity left peddles that they were with us during the initial Afghanistan phase of the war, and even after 9/11.

No syrupy revisionism will change this fact.

[As I was writing this piece, I received the following unsolicited email from a Big Hollywood reader: "Reminder to liberal celebrities: It's time to set your Fluctuating Patriotism Clock from "Hate America" to "Love America" on Jan. 20th. Remember, it's "Springsteen Ahead - Falwell Behind." Funny.]

Featured in Moore’s goofy, derivative and pretty-in-a-grotesque-way video is none other than Cameron Diaz who had this to say before the 2004 election:

We have a voice now, and we’re not using it, and women have so much to lose. I mean, we could lose the right to our bodies…if you think that rape should be legal , then don’t vote. But if you think that you have a right to your body, and you have a right to say what happens to you and fight off that danger of losing that, then you should vote…

Such mental insanity posing as erudition usually earns ostracism. But Diaz and her self-serious cohorts have no moral compass, no sense of proportion, no decency and, certainly, no shame.

This video illustrates that the current celebrity class are not citizens but serfs. They need a leader to put their minds in the right place to do the right thing. They are not heroic individualists seeking to extend America’s promise but conformists who chose to sit out and complain during the tough years in order to ensure their guy got in the next go-around.

The celebrity decadence during the “oppressive” Bush years was world class. The clubs raged. The boutique hotels rocked. The private jet industry at Van Nuys airport flourished. The party never stopped. And only a precious few (Thank you, dearly!!!) stepped up to support the American troops who have been valiantly fighting for Hollywood’s right to do lines off of each others’ buttocks at $10 million Hollywood Hills mansions.

They never spoke up against the movies that demonized our military.

They never made movies to counter the libel.

They took the easy route. And blamed Bush for everything.

Moore’s nauseating video — which, like Steven Soderbergh’s “Oceans” franchise, grants a pristine look into the modern celebrity’s sense of self-importance — is not a sign of desire to serve the country under Obama. Watch, by March this pledge like New Year’s resolutions will fall by the wayside. It is a sign that the Democrat is in the White House now. It is a sign that they get to sleep again in the Lincoln Bedroom.

Twenty years ago AIDS was the number one cause for the Hollywood left. Remember the trendy red ribbons at all the self-aggrandizing awards shows? Hollywood has moved on (dot org) to better blame-your-fellow-American causes. But President Bush didn’t. And aside from Bob Geldof and Bono , they ignore this president’s demonstrable goodness .

Amazing that Geldof and Bono could valiantly fight their battles and serve humanity without being paralyzed by the Leader of the Free World 2000-2008’s all-encompassing awfulness.

Remember this video: It is a instructive relic of the era of celebrity decadence and boutique anti-Republican activism under President Bush. It is a sickening display that they want fast and easy absolution for having comported themselves like ill-behaved children for eight difficult and war-torn years.

Good luck, President Obama. The rest of you can go to hell.

....and these celebrity libs can all kiss my backside!

1.20.09 - America Held Hostage, Day One

The day is here, so I wanted to add the following. This goes out to you BDS suffering libs with your anti-Bush bumper stickers.

and here's a message I posted for the incoming President at that stupid website by Pepsi Cola which Gateway Pundit wrote about.

Jail Terms For Border Agents Ramos & Compean Commuted!

Per Breitbart, via Gateway Pundit.
In his final acts of clemency, President George W. Bush on Monday commuted the prison sentences of two former U.S. Border Patrol agents whose convictions for shooting a Mexican drug dealer ignited fierce debate about illegal immigration.

Bush's decision to commute the sentences of Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean, who tried to cover up the shooting, was welcomed by both Republican and Democratic members of Congress. They had long argued that the agents were merely doing their jobs, defending the American border against criminals. They also maintained that the more than 10-year prison sentences the pair was given were too harsh.

Rancor over their convictions, sentencing and firings has simmered ever since the shooting occurred in 2005.

It's about time these men were released from jail.

Goodbye, President Bush, and Thank You For Keeping Us Safe

In less than 23 hours, President George W. Bush will have finished his two terms in office as President of the United States.

As he leaves, the media pundits who hated him even when he announced his candidacy for President (and those whom I remember in Texas who mocked him when he first ran for Governor against Ann "Ma" Richards) will take every opportunity to kick him on the way out the door, citing the "low approval ratings" Bush holds in the MSM polls. Democrat & far-Left activists, who've spent the last eight years in a perpetual temper-tantrum over the 2000 Election, will continue their Bush Derangement Syndrome into the Obama Administration by calling for Soviet style show trials and indictments against him and his administration.

Despite the vitriol and hate of the liberals and liberal press, who tout Bush as the "worst President ever," history will be far kinder to him and look back on Bush as a good and decisive President who took the right actions in defending America after the attacks of September 11, 2001.

There is plenty of room for legitimate criticism of Bush in many areas. The stealth amnesty proposals masqueraded as "comprehensive immigration reform." The massive federal spending at the domestic level. The so-called "new tone" which did not end the partisan discourse. In fact, it ignited it, as Democrats took advantage of Bush's good will and divided this nation over national security and national disasters for the sole purpose of their own political gain.

Despite the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center, Khobar Towers in 1996, the embassy bombings in 1998 and the USS Cole attack in 2000, no one imagined the horrors of September 11, 2001. We were not prepared, because those previous attacks were viewed as a criminal matter. Bush saw 9/11 exactly for what it act of war on this nation, not a criminal matter. His actions in invading Iraq, rooting out the Taliban and pursuing al-Queda terrorists world wide was the right action to follow.

Likewise (and you liberals, ACLU members, celebrity idiots of conscience who really don't have a conscience--read this and be offended), the program of tracking transfers of money from terrorists, as well as the terrorist surveillance program (warrantless wiretapping of calls from suspected terrorists to people within America), military tribunals, the detention of al-Queda members without rights at Gitmo and use of harsh interrogation methods (like waterboarding) were all the RIGHT actions to be taken. Personally, I think we should have done more of them. People forget (since history is no longer taught in schools) that much worse has happened in previous wars. Abraham Lincoln, for instance, suspended habeaus corpus during the Civil War and had pro-Confederacy Democrats (Copperheads) arrested.

Just as all these methods were used to fight al-Queda terrorists and prevent future attacks, we were right to invade Iraq and liberate that nation from Saddam Hussein, who had given aid to terrorists and harbored the desire to build weapons of mass destruction.

"But Bush lied," you libs will tell me. "There were no WMDs." First of all, President Bush didn't lie. He acted on the intelligence given to him at the time. It is interesting to note that these same partisan critics of Bush will not admit how Bill Clinton made the same arguments in 1998, and how the Iraq Liberation Act passed with wide bipartisan support that same year.

The results speak for themselves. We have not been attacked on our own soil since 9/11.

After the dot-con bust of 2000, the 9/11 attacks and corporate scandals drove down Wall Street and the American economy, President Bush and the Republican Congress revived it miraculously with across the board tax cuts. The 52 weeks of economic growth showed (as Ronald Reagan and John F. Kennedy did previously) that cutting taxes led to economic recovery. Jobs were created, adding more taxpayers which increased tax revenues. It's interesting to note that the downturn in today's economy began during 2007, after the Worst Congress Ever under Nine Percent Nancy Pelosi had come into power.

No one said the hard decisions would meet with popularity or that all the nations would come together and sing "We Are The World" in approval. Sometimes in life, doing what is right isn't always popular. Nevertheless, that is no reason not to do what is in the best interest of the nation.

So let the liberals deride Bush on the way out while they have their Obasms. Somehow, I have a feeling that it won't be long before the nation wishes George W. Bush was still President of the United States.

Thank you, President Bush, for keeping America safe and for doing what is right!

Count Me As One More Who Won't Get On My Knees for "That One" & This Nationwide Obasm

I can't wait for Tuesday to be over.

I can't wait for all these "Oh Come Let Us Adore Him" displays to finally go away. Like this one I saw at my local store in Fairfax County, VA, after returning from covering the pro-Hamas rally in DC last Saturday. Nearby was a display for the commemorative O issue from the (in the tank) USAToday.

On the Metro ride from DC to Vienna, I noticed all the one day passes with the picture of "the Messiah" on them. I even had to deal with the racist comments of a street solicitor I passed by in DC during the holidays, who figured I voted for McCain on the basis of my skin color.

I'm not alone in my dissent from the Nationwide Obasm either, as Michelle Malkin blogged today.
I respect the historic tradition of inauguration day, not the cult of personality driving the schlock festivities now taking place.

Pomp and circumstance have been replaced with pimp and self-aggrandizement — all topped with a heapful of double standards.

MM links to a Politico article of other dissenters.

There are even anti-Bush liberals like Larry Johnson who can see through the haze. have got to love the Democratic chutzpah. Four years ago Reps. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y. (no, not that Weiner - M.I.M.), and Jim McDermott, D-Wash, called on George Bush to forego festivities. No dancing and drinking while soldiers are fighting. Hell no. Bush should have just had a subdued reception and limited folks to some pound cake and punch. Why party when the nation is at war?

Well, we are still at war and the economy is floundering like a goose with a sucking chest wound. But if we’re going down the tubes why not party? I am convinced that Obama is just providing a preview of the economic miracle he will work once in office. To hell with fiscal restraint. Spend baby spend. Offer the wealthy and the connected some special Washington insider access and they’ll help finance the recovery on their own. Maybe he could rent out the Lincoln bedroom? Lead the way with some creative fund raising. Boy, is he great or what?

...Seriously folks. The media “love fest” for Barack has jumped the shark. If the treacly media coverage continues at this pace we are likely to experience a surge in diabetes. This amount of sugar and sweet would push Lance Armstrong into a diabetic coma. We are going to inaugurate the most brilliant man ever except we know nothing about his academic record. But who cares. We have a miracle worker now.

Yes, the hypocrisy by the "anti-inauguration" crowd of sore losers four years ago is stunning. But it's also the 52 to 48 hooey. Eight years of a liberal temper tantrum worse than any two year old and now were supposed to hug, kiss, get down on our knees and worship Obama to the tune of Bush-haters like Springsteen and all the Hollywood libs? I don't think so.

Unlike the "eunuchs at an orgy" called RINO's, I will not be giving Mr. Obama (and that's what I will call him, after you libs repeatedly called President Bush "Mr. Bush") a honeymoon. I will not give him a pass on Eric Holder or any of this other ethically-challenged nominees. I will not be silent as he coddles detained al-Queda terrorists over the safety of American citizens. I will not be silent as he co-dependently puts the "world opinion" above what is best for America.

I will not "drink the Obama Kool Aid." I will not be silent, and (this is addressed to "Organizing (Brownshirts) for Obama"), I WILL NOT BE SILENCED!

The Obama Brownshirts Are Coming

Chris Cillizza writes this disturbing news in his Washington ComPost blog.

President-elect Barack Obama announced the formation of a new group known as "Organizing (Brownshirts) for America" that aims to continue the grassroots advocacy that the former Illinois Senator began in his presidential campaign.

"As President, I will need the help of all Americans to meet the challenges that lie ahead," Obama said in a video message e-mailed to supporters (and reporters) this morning. "That's why I'm asking people like you who fought for change during the campaign to continue fighting for change in your communities."

...The new group will work within the Democratic National Committee -- led by Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine (my part time governor - M.I.M.) -- to advance the Obama agenda. "President-elect Obama has laid the foundation to meet the great challenges facing our nation, but we can succeed only if we build grassroots support for the administration's agenda," said Kaine in a release announcing the formation
of Organizing (Brownshirts) for America.

The imagery reminds me of "Waiting for the Worms," from the movie version of The Wall by Pink Floyd.

This is dangerous. A sitting President using his party and a loyal governor to form a goon squad of goose steppers. Make no mistake, "fighting for change in your communities" means silencing those who criticize Obama or his socialist, appeasement policies. We saw it last year as bloggers were targeted by Obamabots to be silenced and how That One himself kicked correspondents of newspapers who did not endorse him. Because he cannot take criticism, a sign of deep insecurity.

And all you libs who called Bush a "Nazi" and accused him of silencing critics are strangely silent.

Obama Flip Flops On Killing Bin Laden, Says It Is No Longer Important

That's what he told Katie Couric on See BS News the other day (also via UK Times online).
Barack Obama suggested last night that removing Osama bin Laden from the battlefield was no longer essential and that America's security goals could be achieved merely by keeping al-Qaeda "on the run".

"My preference obviously would be to capture or kill him," he said. "But if we have so tightened the noose that he's in a cave somewhere and can't even communicate with his operatives then we will meet our goal of protecting America."

His comments, in a CBS interview, represent a significant watering down of the "dead or alive" policy pursued by President Bush since the terror attacks of September 11, 2001. They also appear to contradict Mr Obama's own statements made in the election campaign.
The statement the Times is referring to happened during the second Presidential Debate on October 7, when Mr. Obama said (see at 2:04 in the video below).

"We will kill bin Laden. We will crush al Qaeda. That has to be our biggest national security priority," Obama said during the presidential debate on October 7."

Joe "Plugs" Biden also said the following in the video below:

"Ladies and Gentlemen, John McCain said he would follow Osama bin Laden to the gates of Hell. (scattered laughter) Well let me tell you something. President Barack Obama will follow him to where he lives and then send him to Hell."
Obama's advisor Susan Rice, who was involved in the bungled attempt by the Clinton Administration to get bin Laden, said on CNN that Obama would try to kill bin Laden.

Change you can believe in?

"Globalize The Intifada"--Zombie Illustrates Recent Extremism At Protests Against Israel Worldwide

Zombie, Bay Area photojournalist extraordinaire, has kindly linked to this blog and This Ain't Hell for examples of last Saturday's "Globalize the Intifada" rallies held worldwide by International ANSWER and other groups supporting the Hamas terrorists.

Here's what Zombie saw last weekend in San Francisco. Of course, none of these images of extremism will make it to NBC, ABC, SeeBS, CNN, the Washington ComPost or San Francisco Comicle.

Despite Obama, Our Enemies Still Hate Us

Despite the delusional wishes of co-dependent, navel gazers who voted for Barack Hussein Obama so he could "repair America's image" to the world, our enemies still hate us.

Footage from Iran, from The Big Feed.

"That One" has his picture set on fire, run over by cars and shoes thrown at him. Gee, I thought that was reserved for George W. Bush, right? Apparently not.

And all the good will you're showing to the Islamofascists, Mr. Obama, in promising to close Gitmo and not give the detained terrorists a shampoo, what has that earned you? Our enemies still hate you and America.

As much as I do not like the web of deception around Mr. Obama, the secrecy, his socialist policies and his appeasement of our enemies, I will not act like the treasonous liberal crybabies and side with the shoe throwers. I will criticize Mr. Obama in the hopes that he will do the right thing, defend this nation and support those whose job it is to carry out that mission.

President Bush stated a universal truth in his farewell address Thursday night, there IS good and evil. Those who think they can negotiate or appease evil are delusional. Look up Neville Chamberlain and Munich and see what the end result was. If Mr. Obama thinks he can earn the good will of our enemies by showing weakness, he is sorely mistaken, as the above video shows.

Obama Ready To Coddle Terrorists, End "Harsh" Interrogations

Barack Hussein Obama is signaling once again how his administration will be on the side of the terrorists and against the American people.

Associated (with Obama) Press is reporting Obama is ready to do away with so-called "harsh" interrogations of Islamofascist murderers who want to kill you and me.

President-elect Barack Obama is preparing to prohibit the use of waterboarding and harsh interrogation techniques by ordering the CIA to follow military rules for questioning prisoners, according to two U.S. officials familiar with drafts of the plans.

The proposal Obama is considering would require all CIA interrogators to follow conduct outlined in the U.S. Army Field Manual, the officials said. The plans would also have the effect of shutting down secret "black site" prisons around the world where the CIA has questioned terror suspects — with all future interrogations taking place inside American military facilities.
Excuse me, Mr. Obama and you libs. Waterboarding is NOT torture.
This is torture below, having your head cut off by Islamofascist murderers. When this happened Nick Berg I didn't hear a single peep out of your phony liberal mouths. You jerks were angrier about Abu Garhib than the murder of this young American.

I repeat what I say a few days ago, do not be fooled into thinking this touchy-feely, limp-writsted method of fighting terror will win hearts and minds. It won't. It will only show weakness and complacency, as well as invite the terrorists to strike this nation again.

And God forbid if that day comes, the blood of dead Americans will be on the hands of Barack Hussein Obama and the terrorist appeasing Democrat party.

Media Bias Even A Blind Man Could See: USAToday Trashes Bush Over 9/11, Washington ComPost Has Obasms When "That One" Visits

Journalism for all practical purposes died in 2008. It has been replaced by a Pravda style media which shapes public opinion in favor of far-Left Democrat politicians while finding the right people to trash their ideological opponents.

This bias can be viewed now as President George W. Bush prepares to leave office, after eight years of a non-stop invective from a media who abused their public trust to undermine his administration, even going so far as to forge memos indicating he skipped out on his duties in the Air National Guard in 2004. Compare that to the near masturbatory adulation towards Barack Hussein Obama by the media.

First, let's look at USAToday, who ran a story the other day which used the 9/11 attacks as a battering ram to hammer Bush on the way out of office (For relatives of 9/11 victims, activism and altered views). The formula is simple. Find enough 9/11 relatives who attack Bush over his handling of the Pearl Harbor of our time and Bingo(!), USAToday will try to make America think that Bush really failed after 9/11. Ask yourself, why won't USAToday give equal time to 9/11 relatives like Sgt. Tim Sumner or Debra Burlingame and others? Because the paper has a far-Left agenda.

No wonder USAToday is in the financial crapper, as they've had to furlough employees for a week. The paper is also selling a five dollar commemorative Obama Edition of their rag at newsstands, so there's no surprise who they are in the tank for.

Speaking of "in the tank," we now look at the Washington ComPost. Yesterday, Mr. Obama visited the DNC house organ and the reaction was not surprising, according to Michael Calderone's blog at The Politico.
Obama arrived at the Washington Post headquarters today, as covered in priceless pool report by the New York Times Helene Cooper.

After three and a half hours at his transition office, PEOTUS obama took another 6 minute ride through washington, arriving at 157 pm at the nondescript soviet-style building at 15th and L street that houses the washington post.

Around 100 people--Post reporters perhaps?--awaited PEOTUS's arrival, cheering and bobbing their coffee cups.

...Post covers it, too. "Staff writers, photographers, editors and employees from other departments lined the hallway after word spread that the President-elect would be walking through the newsroom." Now Kurtz: "There hasn't been this much excitement in The Washington Post newsroom since Brad Pitt dropped by." And Cillizza with actual news from the meeting.

So much for being an "Independent Newspaper" and for the empty farewell hopes of Ombudsman Deborah Howell. Count on the Washington ComPost become the Obama Kool Aid dispenser to America, and lose more than just 900 subscribers in the process.

So for all the denials of the MSM, media bias is alive, well and the norm at the majority of newspapers and television networks. But don't be mistaken, while they keep bleeding readers and revenues, they won't change their spots. All they have to do today is scream for a bailout, because their friends are running the show in DC.

Senate GOP = Eunuchs At An Orgy

With the big-spending, socialist economic plans, as well as the appeasement foreign policy of the Obama-led Democrat government, I find myself wondering...

Where is the leadership in Congress to stop it?

The answer is, sadly, there's not much of it.

Michelle Malkin notes that, today, with questions of ethics problems surrounding the nomination of Hillary Rotten Clinton as Secretary of State, the GOP Senators sat on their hands.

Even worse news is that the gun-grabbing, defender of FALN terrorist pardons Eric Holder has the support of....

Ted Kennedy's designated driver, Orrin Hatch (MM again).
The former Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee will support Eric Holder’s nomination for attorney general, giving him a major boost toward confirmation.

Sen. Orrin Hatch (Utah), who chaired the panel for a decade beginning in 1995, told The Hill that he will support Holder.

“I intend to,” said Hatch.

...Hatch said that Republicans should try to strike a cooperative tone with President-elect Obama during the first days of his administration.

“I start with the premise that the president deserves the benefit of the doubt. I don’t think politics should be played with the attorney general,” he said.

“I like Barack Obama and want to help him if I can.”

I think I wanna throw up. has a list of 12 examples of how Mitch McConnell (who barely won a re-election fight in November) has "Lost His Testicles and Now Infects the Senate GOP With A Cancer."

It appears almost the Senate GOP has become eunuchs at an orgy, unwilling to stand up for the principles of limited government, free enterprise, and the principles this nation was founded on. Compare that with the relentless, frothing, divisive, mean-spirited attacks toward any nomination made by President Bush in the past eight years by Democrats.

You'd think two losing election cycles would have taught them a lesson. No, they're back to rewriting the textbook on how to lose an election cycle.

Just when the country needs leadership most.
