Ruling with an Iron Fist

Dustin Hawkins has called for the death of Julian Assange. He has called for the CIA to kill the Wikileaks releaser of confidential information.
Killing Julian Assange would send a message: Julian Assange is not an American citizen and he has no constitutional rights. So, there's no reason that the CIA can't kill him. . . . Legally, we may not be able to do a lot to Assange since he's not an American, but killing him would do more to protect our classified data than any new security system.
I wonder if there would be any consequences to our Government murdering an Australian Citizen. And let's be clear this can't be "an unexpected heart attack" for Hawkin's strategy to work. It has to be clear (if deniable) that we did this.

Also I am continually depressed at how conservatives fail to understand the founding documents. The Declaration of Independence is for all people, not just for Americans. We might not have the power to enforce it throughout the world, but the idas that Americans have rights and foreigners just don't strikes me as mean and unamerican.

Conservative love to reveal their plans for America, and then, faced with blowback, pretend they were only joking or being satirical.
When the black alumna called she said she had read my recent column “If I Were President.” She wanted to know whether I was really going to abolish the African American Center. At that point, I already knew we were in for an educational conversation. These days, college graduates are not well-versed in satire. As an art form, it is swiftly becoming extinct.

Things went downhill in our conversation when this college graduate told me that she became upset with my remarks about getting rid of the African American Center after she “saw that I was white”. My seventh Great Grandfather fought in the American Revolution in order to preserve our basic God-given rights. But this college graduate seemed to suggest that the expression of basic human rights is contingent upon race. The African American Center she frequented as an undergraduate did not seem to give her the ability to reflect and remedy her own possible racism.

After hearing her tell me that she “got all amped up” in response to my satire I made a big mistake. I explained that I would get rid of all the centers if I really were running for chancellor.
Interesting. Apparently this foolish student was upset that Adams would get rid of African American centers if he was President. How silly. She doesn't understand satire. Of course Adams really would shut down the African American centers if he were Chancellor. You obviously see the satirical difference.

But then again maybe the studant was more concerned over shutting down the African American center than what title Adams felt he needed to accomplish this goal.

Obama visits a place Ahmadinejad once visited

Stop the presses. President Barack Obama, during his visit to Indonesia, a predominently Muslim nation, will visit a Mosque and a University where President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad previously visited. Not only that, but the somewhat crazy president of Iran said some somewhat crazy things (including bog standard attacks on Israel). And Obama is going to the same places that Ahmadinejad once walked.

I'm not sure what this proves, but it is the theme of Terrence Jeffrey's latest article. He also doesn't exactly explain what the significance of this is, leaving it to his readers to fill in the blanks. Which they are more than capable of doing.
He's (Obama is) in his element, surrounded by Muslims that are interested in the destruction of America, Israel, capitalism, freedom and anything not Muslim. The best thing ever would be to leave him there and not allow his retun.

If Nothing Happens We Win!

Lot's of articles today on what will happen with the new Republican House and how Obama will deal with them. David Limbaugh's article is a pretty good example; essentially President Obama, being a super liberal egotist won't change his positions to be more moderate because he's not smart enough to to realize he should and not politically skilled enough to make the move.

Let me just comment again at how different the right looks at Obama; they see a guy who is stubbornly unwilling to abandon Far Left positions. And I see a guy who barely tried to uphold liberal positions before caving to industry and conservatives again and again. Did we get a public option in health care? No.

But let's consider what Limbaugh's article implies for Conservatives.
As long as Republicans stand strong for conservative principles -- and that's a very big if -- Obama's toast in 2012.
Well, this may be accurate. If they shut down the government, more or less, with gridlock, than the economy may still be in the toilet. In which case the voters might well take it out on President Obama. Unless of course Obama can make it clear that the gridlock over the last few years ('11 and '12) was the fault of Republicans in Congress, in which case who knows (particularly if they put up Sarah Palin or Newt Gingrich).

Of course regardless of who wins in 2012, the cynical strategy of gridlock for the next two years kind of ensures that the losers are the American people.

I'm Tired of People Pretending to be Idiots

From Doug Gile's latest article; about how liberals are afraid of Sarah Palin.
According to the Progressives, women cannot be “real women” if they don’t fit the Progressives’ script. Yep, if a woman doesn’t march to the Left’s horse dung definition regarding what “they” (whoever the heck “they” are) have determined constitutes a real woman, she is illegitimate.
First of all who has said that Sarah Palin isn't a real woman? You have a citation on that?

Secondly, what people have certainly said is that Sarah Palin doesn't represent the interests of women. I might well say that. I don't think Sarah Palin will represent the interests of most Americans. She's a conservative, so in my opinion the things she wants to do for this country are bad for this country and bad for the people who live in it. What is wrong with saying that? Nothing. Certainly our Conservative buddies have no problem slamming Obama for not really loving this country because he works for programs they disagree with.

Giles also slams liberals women for not looking like Portia de Rossi. Instead they all apparently look like a stereotypical butch lesbian. Giles is kind of despicable.

Your Weekly Rush - Explaining without an Explanation

Limbaugh is obviously overjoyed at the electoral tsunami that hit America on Tuesday. That said he seems at a loss as to explain how O'Donnel and Angle lost. His narrative is that Conservative Candidates win; moderate candidates lose. Americans want Conservatism. So how to explain the losses of O'Donnel and Angle? It's the moderate influences in the party.
Christine O'Donnell could have won were it not for all the backbiting after her primary victory. Had the party gotten behind her, had Steele had some on-the-ground money for Nevada, who knows how that mighta turned out. We didn't have any money on the ground in Nevada. There was no way we're gonna combat the unions getting behind and the gaming industry getting behind Dingy Harry and who knows what the hell happened to ballot boxes in places, but there was no ground game money in Nevada and very little in Delaware, what the hell was gonna happen?
He strongly insinuates that Reid fixed the run in Nevada, but in both cases the answer is the same; rather than admit that these were weak candidates, he blames the party and party centrists (like Karl Rove?!?) for failing to support these strong Conservative woman.

Of course he goes on to point out how many awful liberals there are that get elected year after year, taking a shot at the late Ted Kennedy in the process. Real class.

New Quote

I was going to do this quote, also from Monty Python.
We would like to apologize for the way in which politicians are represented in this programme. It was never our intention to imply that politicians are weak-kneed, political time-servers who are more concerned with their personal vendettas and private power struggles than the problems of government. Nor to suggest at any point that they sacrifice their credibility by denying free debate on vital matters in the mistaken impression that party unity comes before the well-being of the people they supposedly represent. Nor to imply at any stage that they are squabbling little toadies without an ounce of concern for the vital social problems of today. Nor indeed do we intend that viewers should consider them as crabby, ulcerous, little self-seeking vermin with furry legs and an excessive addiction to alcohol and certain explicit sexual practices which some people might find offensive. We are sorry if this impression has come across.
Too long, but it does more accurately display my attitude.

This will be a Productive Two Years

From Michelle Malkin's latest article.
No more compromising deals behind closed doors. No more compromising bailouts in times of manufactured crisis. No more compromising conservative principles for D.C. party elites. No more compromising the American economy for left-wing special interests. No more compromising transparency and ethics for bureaucratic self-preservation.

Let us be clear, in case it hasn't fully sunk into the minds of Obama and the trash-talking Democrats yet: You can take your faux olive branch and shove it. Thank you.
Republicans like to explain that they are the grown ups, but this doesn't sound very grown up does it? But it does follow on from conservative philosophy. There's no real need for conservatives to work liberals to make government work, because conservatives don't believe government can work. If Government can't work anyway, why bother getting up in arms to make it work?

No New Tale to Tell

Sorry - I was on the road then I was sick, then I didn't care for a few days. But now I'm ready to pounce on the latest Doug Giles article.
Yes, the masturbatory Progressives who deny the existence of God are the self-appointed gods of the post America milieu, and their Church of the New Groove is a DC on ‘roids.
I think his point is that Liberals and Leftists are their own religion (not, as it turns out, an original idea), and that we deny the existence of God and like to masterbate?

Giles' main theme is that we liberals are tyranically silencing conservatives, but since they have God on their side, they don't have to be quiet. It's always nice to assert that people who aren't taking any risk by speaking up are in fact taking huge risks. Makes their lives seem more dramatic. Kind of like when you are a kid running around playing "cops and robbers." Of course you pretend you are in great danger from the finger and/or plastic guns you have. Makes the game more exciting ("Cops and robbers" is way more popular than "run around and point at each other"). Giles is just updating that little thrill of pretend danger for the modern age.
