HELP! HELP! I'm being repressed!

For those getting the feed on Facebook, you will need to click on the link below to see the video - its worth it.

Since it is forbidden to criticize our dear leader without being called a racist, we must resort to other means to express our disappointment with the direction of our country. One of these is ridicule. So I give you Dennis and his explanation of government oppression from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

ARTHUR: Be quiet! I order you to be quiet!
WOMAN: Order, eh -- who does he think he is?
ARTHUR: I am your king!
WOMAN: Well, I didn't vote for you.
ARTHUR: You don't vote for kings.
WOMAN: Well, 'ow did you become king then?
ARTHUR: The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water signifying by Divine Providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. That is why I am your king!
DENNIS: Listen -- strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

Priceless! Watch the entire scene below:

Speaking of films, I just watched Der Untergang (2004) this weekend. Its a German film about the last days of Hitler. One of the better films I have seen on the topic for those that do not mind subtitles.

As the end approaches, even the most loyal supporters start to see the madness of Hitler and National Socialism. And while a few "patriots" follow Hitler to the grave - some quite literally, most Germans realize Hitler was a power hungry psychotic. Unfortunately, for the 50 million who lost their lives, that was discovered far too late.

The lesson we learn is to not follow a cult of personality. They will simply use you and quickly discard you when they are done. Develop principles and values and stick to them. Support candidates that support those values. Avoid supporting people because of their charisma or charm. Charm is just a con game. BTW - one of the meanings of charm is bewitch. Something to think about each election season.

Good film if you get a chance to see it, and its available online.

Get Out Of Jail Free...

Yet again, Obama releases more GITMO folks back into the wild. We've got people planning to blow up buildings here in the US (see last post) and the POTUS has put us back in pre-9/11 mode - fighting terrorism with lawyers.

The Department of Justice Saturday evening announced that two detainees had been transferred from Guantanamo Bay to Ireland, and one had been transferred to Yemen.
Obama Administration Frees Three More Gitmo Detainees

Maybe just maybe this is part of a tag and release operation where we are tracking these guys. I know I'm dreaming when it comes to this administration actually desiring to prevent terrorism.

Gosh, I hope they didn't have to fly coach.

I Thought The World Loved Us Now...

DALLAS - James T. Jacks, the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Texas, and Robert E. Casey, Jr., Special Agent in Charge for the Dallas Office of the FBI, announced today that Hosam Maher Husein Smadi, 19, has been arrested and charged in a federal criminal complaint with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction. Smadi, who was under continuous surveillance by the FBI, was arrested today near Fountain Place, a 60-story glass office tower located at 1445 Ross Avenue in downtown Dallas, after he placed an inert/inactive car bomb at the location. Smadi, a Jordanian citizen in the U.S. illegally, lived and worked in Italy, Texas, (approximately 45 miles south of Dallas).

He has repeatedly espoused his desire to commit violent Jihad and has been the focus of an undercover FBI investigation.

Thank God we have good people on the job trying to protect us from these fanatics.

A Man Among Children...

At the UN global warming hug fest, we heard from the granola children - flakes, fruits and nuts. It was now time to hear from a statesman and an adult, Vaclav Klaus, President of the Czech Republic. I quote from his remarks.

When looking for an appropriate reaction to the problems connected with the current crisis, we should build on the idea that the crisis was basically a failure of governments, not markets.

--- snip ---

Let us not delude ourselves that the economic cycle and its consequences can be prevented by the more extensive government regulation or by aiming at global governance of the world economy.

--- snip ---

I do, however, want to emphasize that the measures proposed to combat climate change represent another heavy burden, for both the developed countries which are falling into deep fiscal deficits now and for developing countries and this is in a situation when the rich countries, often pushing this agenda at international forums, are losing their ability to compensate the poorer countries for the impact of these additional costs.

He then added this parting shot to a reporter.

"It was sad and it was frustrating. It's a propagandistic exercise where 13-year-old girls from some far-away country perform a pre-rehearsed poem," he said. "It's simply not dignified."

He is my favorite foreign leader. Having grown up under Communism he understands what freedoms are at stake if the world buys into this hoax.

Since Americans don't seem to care about the Constitutional requirement for a natural born citizen anymore, I say Vaclav Klaus for President 2012! Or at least someone with the cojones to speak the truth about the global warming hoax.

"Global warming is a false myth and every serious person and scientist says so. It is not fair to refer to the U.N. panel. The IPCC is not a scientific institution: it's a political body, a sort of non-government organization of green flavor. It's neither a forum of neutral scientists nor a balanced group of scientists. These people are politicized scientists who arrive there with a one-sided opinion and a one-sided assignment." -- Vaclav Klaus

Granola Day At The UN...

Nothing but fruits, nuts and flakes at the UN today including our dear leader. Here are some highlights!

Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, one of the many despots allowed to speak, had these words of wisdom:

"How can we be happy about the world security if the world is controlled by four or five powers?"

And then,

"It should not be called the Security Council, it should be called the Terror Council."

Pulling out his tin foil he added,

"Perhaps this swine virus may be one of those viruses that was created in the laboratory and it went out of control because it was meant in the beginning to be used as a military weapon."

Not to be outdone, Obama put it all on the line with some deep thoughts for the world.

"Responsibility and leadership in the 21st century demand more. In an era when our destiny is shared, power is no longer a zero-sum game. No one nation can or should try to dominate other nation. No world order that elevates one nation or group of people over another will succeed."

Yep, America is leader of the free world no more. We're just like every other worthless little dictatorship. He even threw Israel under the bus with this radical departure in American policy towards Israel (emphasis mine).

"We continue to call on Palestinians to end incitement against Israel. And we continue to emphasize that America does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements."

And of course you just knew he had to plug the global warming hoax.

"The danger posed by climate change cannot be denied. Our responsibility to meet it must not be deferred. If we continue down our current course, every member of this assembly will see irreversible changes within their borders."


Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, along with other leftist leaders in South America, demanded that Honduran law and the will of its people be ignored.

"The international community demands that Mr. Zelaya immediately return to the presidency of his country."

The closing act was Iranian President Imamadnutjob who offered these parting words.

"Our nation has gone through a glorious and fully democratic election, opening a new chapter for our country in the march toward national progress and enhanced international interactions entrusted me once more with a large majority."

I'll be here all week. Be sure and tip your waitresses and bartenders!"

The United Nations started as a noble dream of nations discussing and solving disputes in a civilized manner. Now its more like a big bowl of granola - flakes, fruit and nuts. Why is the "President" of Iran, Libya or any 3rd world dictatorship taken seriously. I mean really.

Maybe its time to cut off funds and send all these baby blue beret wearing leftists packing.

No Mas!

If you've read any of my writing on the global warming hoax, you know deep at the core of the movement are people determined to bring about the end of capitalism. They are green on the outside, but socialist red on the inside. You can see that by the "solutions" offered to combat global warming. They usually involve much higher taxes, more regulation, global wealth redistribution and a much larger government bureaucracy to "manage" the lives of us simpletons not on the government payroll.

During this week of exciting global warming meetings at the UN, I present for your amusement the President of Bolivia Evo Morales, heretofore referred to as BEVO, for the amount of bovine excrement coming from his keyboard on the global warming hoax. BEVO is the leader of the socialist party in Bolivia referred to as MAS, the Spanish word for "more" - keep that in mind as we proceed.

He wrote this lovely piece of Barbra Streisand in 2008:

Competition and the thirst for profit without limits of the capitalist system are destroying the planet. Under Capitalism we are not human beings but consumers. Under Capitalism Mother Earth does not exist, instead there are raw materials. Capitalism is the source of the asymmetries and imbalances in the world. It generates luxury, ostentation and waste for a few, while millions in the world die from hunger in the world. (My emphasis)

--- BEVO - Capitalism and the free market system has done more for humans in the last 200 years than ANY economic or political structure in the history of mankind. More wealth has been created and distributed than has existed in the entire history of the world! And the standard of living has advanced at a phenomenal rate in countries that have embraced free markets. Every major technological, scientific or medical advancement/achievement of note has originated in countries that are at least somewhat capitalistic in nature.

It is the free countries that have done the most to reduce pollution and clean the environment. America has one of the highest standards of living and leads the world in producing even more efficient cars and industry. Why? Because waste is not profitable. The profit motive is what produces innovation. It is the desire to build wealth that creates opportunity and raises the standard of living for all!

Heck, even the "poor" in America live like kings compared to the average citizen living in socialist countries. And if the "poor" are so inclined, they can get up off their butt here in the "evil" US and within a few short years, be a business tycoon creating jobs for another generation. It just takes a dream and some hard work. In a capitalist system, there is opportunity, not so much in the socialist countries.

It is only in the tin-pot dictatorships and 3rd world "managed" economies of countries like say, Bolivia, where people continue to live in squalor. And apparently with BEVO in charge, that is unlikely to change. Even if billions were stolen from "wealthy" nations to combat "global warming" and given to socialist nations, they would simply continue to stash it in their personal foreign bank accounts and pay off their cronies.

I find this Wikipedia entry fascinating as it reflects what's wrong with the left's mindset:

Despite its (Bolivia) abundance of natural resources, there are not enough jobs for the people and the Bolivian government is unable to provide enough. (My emphasis)

It is NOT the role of government to provide jobs. Government cannot create wealth. Government will fail every time if/when people depend on it for their livelihood. Bolivia is blessed with an abundance of natural resources, but somehow can't figure out how to prosper. If it weren't so sad, it would be funny.

One final BEVO thought:

We need a World Environment and Climate Change Organisation to which multilateral trade and financial organisations are subordinated, so as to promote a different model of development that environmentally friendly and resolves the profound problems of impoverishment. This organisation must have effective follow-up, verification and sanctioning mechanisms to ensure that the present and future agreements are complied with.

Umm...not no, but HELL no. I will never subordinate United States sovereignty to a bunch of blue-beret wearing socialists at the UN. The US has already plunged too far down the rat hole of socialism, its time to turn the ship around.

BTW - I'm sure Big Al Gore has been lobbying to be El Jefe of the newly created World Environment and Climate Change Organisation. That would be swell!

Lawyers, Tort Reform & Health Care...

You want to lower the price of health care? Take a look what Mississippi has done. In 2004, Mississippi and its Governor Haley Barbour took on the task of reigning in the malpractice abuse in their state. Malpractice liability insurance premiums dropped by 41% and claims dropped by more than 90%.

Why is that not even being considered by Democrats in Washington? Must not hurt the feelings of the trial lawyers, a key enabler of Democrat candidates I guess.

It takes Obama 6-8 months to decide if he will give his Generals in Afghanistan the troops requested. But he wants to dismantle the best health care in the world in less than 30 days without discussion!

Here is an excerpt from a great article on the subject:

"It's mysterious to me that the administration and the leadership of Congress talk about health care reform and the goal of reducing costs, and yet refuse to put tort reform into the legislation," he said. "I believe $200, $250 billion a year in health care costs is caused by litigation. It may be more than that. But this is the lowest hanging fruit, this ain't rocket science."
Here's your 'demonstration project,' Mr. President -- it's called Mississippi

White Flag Flies At The White House...

Obama has gone to great lengths to bankrupt the country through reckless spending, destroy the domestic auto industry, threatened a government takeover of health care and of course his worldwide apology tour. If that was not enough, he has cancelled plans to deploy a missile defense system in Eastern Europe and essentially, given the green light to Iran to proceed with building a nuclear weapon.

The Russians are of course giddy that they have forced the weak POTUS to renege on the promised deployment. The Poles and Czechs viewed the presence of American military as an added deterrent towards a newly aggressive Russia - see Georgia.

Now they see America as a country that cannot be trusted. Well, at least they see Obama as such.

For an interesting perspective from a Pole, click here for a letter on the subject.

I find it interesting that Obama has so quickly abandoned our allies in Eastern Europe to appease Russia, while at the same time Russia is actively engaging and arming countries in the Americas. Chief among these is the little dictatorship of Venezuela.

He has also steadfastly refused to acknowledge that what happened in Honduras is NOT a coup, but a lawful removal of a would-be socialist dictator. It really makes you wonder what makes Obama so eager to side with tyrants, aggressors and socialists throughout the world.

Who Are The Real Racists?

We are told that any opposition to President Obama is racist. And anyone that opposes wasteful government spending, ACORN corruption, tax cheats writing tax laws or a government takeover of health care is a racist. If you attend a tea party protest, obviously you are a racist. If you believe true freedom exists only when you free yourself from the government plantation, well, quite naturally, you are a racist.

This was one of my favorite signs at the 9-12 rally (If you can't see the picture click here or here):

When liberals cannot debate the facts, they rely on personal attacks. Truth is a stranger to them. Its like light to a vampire.

The reason so many people oppose the current administration has nothing to do with skin color and everything to do with their actions. Wasn't that what Martin Luther King argued quite passionately for in his speeches, that we judge a man by the quality of his character?

But that doesn't match up with the left's template. "Conservatives want to starve children. They want to force the elderly to eat dog food. They hate minorities!"

When in reality, its the liberal policies that are currently being pushed that are much more likely to cause the early demise of grandma. Or in the case of auto dealers or insurance salesmen, put you out of business. Or keep you stuck on the government plantation living in government housing and trying to live off of government handouts taken from fellow citizens. Who are the real racists here? People determined to keep you living in poverty as useful idiots to the liberal cause, or those trying to free you to a better life?

Government will never make you prosperous. Only hard work, education and a God-inspired willingness to change can do that. Taking money from one group to give it to another simply equalizes the misery. You will never succeed in life by stealing from someone else, even if it is the government doing the taking!

Lloyd Marcus is an entertainer and a Conservative. He has produced numerous YouTube videos in support of Conservative values. He was part of the Tea Party bus tour that crossed America, heading towards Washington. I want to quote from his piece and encourage you to click on the link to read his entire story.

As I said, I am a singer, songwriter, entertainer and columnist using my gifts to spread the message that conservatism is best for all Americans. Liberal’s response to my YouTube videos, columns and performances on the Tea Party Express have been extremely racist, vicious and hate filled. In their incredible arrogance, they vilify me for loving my country and not viewing myself as a victim of white America. In the sick minds of liberals, as a black man in America, I must support president Obama regardless of his policies. I must resent white America. I must feel entitled to the earnings of other Americans. My belief that my success or failure is totally in the hands of myself and my God is an anathema to them.

As to the claim that the tea party protesters are racist, they are not. Quite the opposite. At every rally with thousands in attendance, I was overwhelmingly showered with affection and thanks for standing up for America. At one rally, a sign read, “Lloyd Marcus for President”. These protesters are not racist. They are decent hard working ordinary Americans who love their country and disapprove of the radial changes planned by the Obama administration. Race is not an issue with them. They have deep concerns for their country.

When liberals are losing the debate, the only thing left to play is the race card. But that dog doesn't hunt anymore.

Age Of Stupid...

I was off on Monday and decided to take in a movie. I got my times mixed up and ended up watching Whiteout, since that was the only film starting within the next 45 minutes. With the exception of the first 10 minutes featuring Kate Beckinsale climbing in the shower, which had absolutely no bearing on the film I might add, the film was a complete waste of $7.25. Plus of course the $100 or so I spent for my fruit punch.

Before the film started, there was a preview for a new docudrama called the Age Of Stupid. I thought it a very appropriate title since it is yet another Al Gore inspired "global warming" propaganda film. There will be a big event around 9/21 in theaters throughout the world to promote and show this piece of garbage. All the pretty people are apart of this, who doesn't want to "save the planet" in real life, especially if they don't get to do it onscreen quite often.

I really thought this scam had been thoroughly debunked. I am shocked and dismayed that there are still Al Gore disciples trying to fool people into thinking that they are somehow "destroying the planet" when they drive their SUV to the store. So once again, let me try and persuade you that man is NOT responsible for changes in the earth's climate.

Here are some great source articles. Read them with an open mind and ask yourself this question, "who really benefits from this scam?"

From the Australian press, debunking 10 popular global warming myths: Global warming alarmists out in cold

Its the sun, stupid: Sunspot cycles may hold key to global warming, cooling - Which would also explain the warming in the past on the other planets where no SUVs are present.

Will the polar bears freeze instead of drown?: Arctic sea ice melt appears to have turned the corner for 2009 - Arctic ice minimum coverage 2009 (5.25 million km2) - minimum 2008 (4.71 million km2)

US 2009 Summer 34th COOLEST on record: NOAA: Summer Temperature Below Average for U.S.

By far, the greatest source of C02 is the ocean. When the waters warm, CO2 is released. This cycle has continued for centuries: THE ACQUITTAL OF CARBON DIOXIDE - Long but worthy of a read if you really seek the truth.

Global warming alarmists may have noble intentions. But they are useful idiots for those like Al Gore who hope to profit from the scare, and socialists who hope to expand government through vain attempts to stop "global warming." That is why the solutions offered always include draconian tax increases, massive expansion of government and more regulation.

President Vaclav Klaus of the Czech Republic, certainly no stranger to the dangers of socialism, made a speech in France recently. Here is an excerpt:

The advocates of global warming alarmism ask for an almost unprecedented expansion of government intrusion, of government intervention into our lives and of government control over us. We are pushed into accepting rules about how to live, what to do, how to behave, what to consume, what to eat, how to travel. It is unacceptable. Radical, human freedom and prosperity endangering measures and policies owing to global warming are not necessary.
Czech President: Neosocialism Threatens Europe

Just remember, the leaders of the global warming scam are green on the outside, but red as can be on the inside. Nobody on the right is suggesting that we pollute or destroy the planet. We are just rejecting the fear-based plunge towards more socialism based on really bad science. Trying to fight "global warming" or even worse change the climate, would truly make this the age of stupid.

They're Back....

I posted a couple of days ago videos from James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles visiting an ACORN office in Baltimore. Posing as a prostitute and boyfriend/aspiring politician, they were given detailed advice on how to avoid taxes and money laundering while operating a brother with underage girls from El Salvador. This undercover operation was repeated in Washington DC with the National ACORN leadership saying at first it was an isolated incident, and then that the filmmakers had edited it to make the nuts look bad. That was after all involved employees were supposedly fired.

Are fearless filmmakers have been threatened by a Democrat attorney general with prosecution. He obviously gets marching orders from Washington. We can't have our favorite army of nuts look bad to the general public. That might rile up the people and force politicians to stop funding this horribly corrupt organization.

Now they are back with a 3rd video from New York City. Now once might be isolated. Twice might be coincidence. But how do you explain three instances, in major ACORN offices, where they advise people how to break the law. Do you want YOUR tax dollars funding this kind of behavior?

BTW - Hannah Giles, the "prostitute" is a little too hot for her role IMHO.

10,000...Give Or Take A Couple Of Million...

You wouldn't know it by watching the state run media, but over a million patriots converged on Washington this weekend to protest the race to destroy our great nation. Growing out of the Tea Party tax protests, people have had enough of out of control spending, corruption, lies, government takeovers and high taxes.

At least the foreign press was paying attention.

Anna Hayes, 58, a nurse from Fairfax County, stood on the Mall in 1981 for Reagan's inauguration. "The same people were celebrating freedom," she said. "The president was fighting for the people then. I remember those years very well and fondly."

Saying she was worried about "Obamacare," Hayes explained: "This is the first rally I've been to that demonstrates against something, the first in my life. I just couldn't stay home anymore."
Up to two million march to US Capitol to protest against Obama's spending in 'tea-party' demonstration

I was concerned when America elected such a radical POTUS. But in hindsight it might be the best way to get citizens to wake up and take action before they forfeit all their freedom.

"If you are free, what are you gonna change to?"

Mason Weaver's speech on August 28th - "Do you want to know why they invited me to speak to you? They want you to see a black man speak for 15 minutes without a teleprompter." LOL

"If you are free, you don't need hope - you are free!"

"If you are free, what are you gonna change to?"

ACORN...Chock Full Of Nuts!

This is too much. ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) reps are caught ON CAMERA advising a prostitute and her associate (a future politician) on how to purchase a house, open a brothel with underage ILLEGAL girls from El Salvador, avoid Federal taxes by claiming deductions as a performing artist and funneling money to her politician friend.

ACORN has received over $31 MILLION in Federal funds since 1998 and are due millions more in stimulus funds. They are accused of massive voter fraud in multiple states in support of Democrat candidates and causes. Obama has a history of advising them on how best to "organize" for leftist causes and he wants them to "help" with the Census.

The two videos together are about 20 minutes long. If you still think this outfit needs Federal funds (your tax money) after watching these, you are too far gone.

If You Go To War, Go To Win...

There are many compelling reasons why you should never elect a radical leftist. Chief among these is their complete misunderstanding of how and why to fight a war. At the very least, I knew McCain as POTUS would stand up for our troops. Obama...not so much.

Apparently our rules of engagement (ROE) have been changing in Afghanistan. We can only guess who is making these important decisions in DC. I am sure it is someone with years of combat experience who clearly understands the global threat of radical islam and the strategic importance of our forces currently deployed in Afghanistan.

It seems our Marines and Afghan allies were ambushed in a well-planned attack. When our troops called in for artillery or air support they were denied. Here is the money quote from the story.

U.S. commanders, citing new rules to avoid civilian casualties, rejected repeated calls to unleash artillery rounds at attackers dug into the slopes and tree lines — despite being told repeatedly that they weren't near the village.
'We're pinned down:' 4 U.S. Marines die in Afghan ambush

Four Marines and several Afghan soldiers died needlessly because some bureaucrat thought he/she could fight a "friendlier and safer" war. War is messy. But it gets even bloodier when intellectuals, pinheads and politicians suddenly think they are the second coming Julius Caesar.

Read the entire sad article at the link.

God Bless Our Troops!
