Re: Leading From Behind

Dear Mr. President,

To most of us, that means “following”.


Slouching Toward Sharia

July 27, 2011

No, not here in America. Not yet.

But lawyer and radical preacher Anjem Choudary is determined to bring Muslim extremism to young people in London, as reported in June at Creeping Sharia. And this month he’s going even further in his efforts to “radicalise the youth” and imprison Londoners in an iron cage of Islamic rule.

Mr. Choudary is attempting to set up sharia law zones in London in which smoking, drinking, music, and concerts are banned.

The Daily Mail reports:

‘You are entering a Sharia-controlled zone – Islamic rules enforced.

“The bright yellow messages daubed on bus stops and street lamps have already been seen across certain boroughs in London and order that in the ‘zone’ there should be ‘no gambling’, ‘no music or concerts’, ‘no porn or prostitution’, ‘no drugs or smoking’ and ‘no alcohol’.

“Hate preacher Anjem Choudary has claimed responsibility for the scheme, saying he plans to flood specific Muslim and non-Muslim communities around the UK and ‘put the seeds down for an Islamic Emirate in the long term’…

“The campaign comes just months after stickers proclaiming a ‘gay-free zone’ and appearing to reference the religious Islamic text of the Koran appeared in Tower Hamlets.

“Women in parts of East London including Tower Hamlets have been threatened with violence and even death by Islamic extremists if they did not wear headscarves.”

Gay-free zones? Women threatened with death for not wearing headscarves? The entire western world is slowly being diminished because of its wholehearted worship of the golden calf of multiculturalism.

How long will it be before this type of behavior reaches our shores?

Or is it already here?


Fear Monger-In-Chief

July 27, 2011

For some time now, our President has been trying to frighten the public by saying things like this:

“I cannot guarantee that those [social Security] checks go out on August 3rd, if we haven’t resolved this issue. Because there may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it.” (7/12/11)
My response? Mr. President, you lie. And we all know you’re lying. Yesterday, Bernie Goldberg wrote an article discussing this mendacity. In it, Mr. Goldberg quoted Dick Morris, and then added a zinger of his own:

Later that night, a perceptive Dick Morris told Sean Hannity the following:

“When he says that we’re facing a disaster if there is a default, I hate to disrespect the president, but he’s lying. He now doesn’t claim that we’re going to default on our debt. He says we’ll default on our obligations. Well folks, there’s enough money to pay the debt, the social security, Medicare, military pay and a hundred other things. The obligations he’s talking about are the bureaucrats in the labor department and the commerce department and the agriculture dept and the state dept.  And those obligations are not the obligations we really care about.  The president [is using] total fear tactics and it’s a lie.  A big lie.”


So now we’re defining “default” as the failure to pay bureaucrats on time?  Try that definition on the Wall Street crowd and they’ll laugh in your face.

I’d like to see all Republican members of Congress stand up and declare that until the Cut Cap and Balance bill is passed, they will not take another paycheck and that those salaries should be returned to the general budget to be used to pay down the debt.
Yes, it would be a  futile gesture, but it might show the country–and the President–that the Republicans are serious about this crisis.
Or at least more serious than our Fear Monger-in-Chief.

Wait, When Did We Solve the Debt Crisis?

July 21, 2011

Well smack my face and call me Rip Van Winkle, because I must have been sleeping. Otherwise I wouldn’t have missed the fact that we’ve solved the debt crisis.

We have solved the debt crisis, haven’t we? The Gang of Six actually made a meaningful proposal that was accepted by everyone? Obama didn’t veto the “Cut, Cap, and Balance” bill? All those seniors are going to get their Social Security checks come August 3, right?

I mean, if that’s not the case, how could our President in good conscience pour millions of our tax dollars into new and unnecessary departments like the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau? And new arts initiatives like “Champions of Change“?

And he surely wouldn’t be taking yet another vacation, this one at the swanky Blue Heron Farm on Martha’s Vinyard if this crisis had not yet passed, right?

No, no, this crisis must be over. Otherwise every Republican in Congress would be locked in solidarity against such ridiculous and extraneous expenditures; and they’d be offering plans to solve the problem, as well as demanding to hear ideas from their Democrat counterparts, as well as the President. Wouldn’t they?

Wouldn’t they?


MSNBC Fail: Contessa Brewer Does It Again

July 20, 2011

Amazingly enough, there are times when I feel sorry MSNBC. And yes, now that Keith Olbermann’s gone, it’s mostly when Contessa Brewer says something stupid.

Like this:

In case you didn’t know either, Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama has three degrees: economics, political science, and law.

Okay, I don’t really pity MSNBC. I actually pity Rep. Brooks for having to suffer fools like Ms. Brewer.

Seven New Lies From The Obama Administration

July 15, 2011

Yeah, me neither.

In fact, I believe each household’s personal obligation towards the national debt is somewhat more than $500,000. But don’t worry, folks. It’s not going to stay that high… it’s getting higher by the second.  And according to Lord Obama, we’re in recovery.

It astounds me, then, that so many of the people voted for Obama are still willing to defend their support even after witnessing his abysmal failure (or “success” if his goal is to bankrupt the country before leaving office).

And they attempt to validate his performance, not by being able to point to any actual positive accomplishment, but rather reminding us how bad George W. Bush was. Or how bad off we would be if Sarah Palin were to become President.  It’s like having a drunken pilot taxi one $100 million jumbo jet into another, only to have the passengers defend the drunken pilot by saying, “Think how much worse it would have been the pilot had been Foster Brooks!”

But now, in the midst of his manufactured financial crisis, once again, Barack Hussein Obama resorts to lies, deception, and sleight of hand to misdirect the attention of as many of his blind faith followers as possible… apparently still unaware that the vast majority of Americans have caught on to his tactics.

So it’s “Damn the torpedoes, Constitution and Democracy, full speed ahead!” by introducing seven new (or tried and true) lies in his arrogant hope to pin the blame for his broken campaign promise about “halving the debt” on the Republicans if possible, or all of Congress if it comes to that. The one person blameless for our situation? Why that would be Barack Obama, of course (just ask him).

Here are the new lies and deceptions, according to John Lott of Fox News (and why YOU should be aware of them):

Thank God for these men. They knew exactly what they were doing.

May you have a very happy Independence Day. And may God bless America.
