It Starts When You’re Always Afraid

April 30, 2009 | Filed Under Ann "Babe" Huggett, Barack Obama, Congress, Conservatives, Democrats/Leftists, Elections, Liberals, Media Bias, Republicans, Society/Culture | 1 Comment

When did the comic advices of, “When in danger, when in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout.” go from a mere joke to today’s reality? Honestly. It’s like the American People are being purposely kept off balance in one big Obamagasm Psy Ops designed to distract them from all the achingly awful, unconstitutional legislation roaring through the Democrat majority Congress and the filibuster proof Senate now.

While news commentators are debating The Great Usurper’s first 100 Days and how the grotesquely self-entitled cretin Senator, Arlen Specter (RINO) ran back to his original Democratic Party roots in order to stay in power past the 2010 elections, Joe and Jane Average are cowering under their respective covers because the rapidly developing-into-a-pandemic swine flu is stalking the land thanks to the feckless Department of Homeland Security refusing to seal the borders. If you add to that Air Force, or should I say Air Farce, One being taken out for a joy ride photo op, which terrorized New York City, supposedly without President Obama’s permission, the FBI spying on the attendees of the Tax Day TEA Parties and everyone else being smeared as a racist every time one objects to Obama and his leftist agenda, it’s enough to induce mass agoraphobia.

The National Council for a New America Launches – Conference Call Report

This morning I listened in on Eric Cantor’s conference call concerning the launch of the National Council for a New America (NCNA) hosted by Congressman Cantor and Senator John McCain.

One of the main points that the two men stressed is that this is “not a contract with America,” but a “conversation” with her. The GOP leaders also stressed that this is an “inclusive” effort with which they want to hear from all manner of Americans adhering to a variety opinions on today’s most pressing Issues. The two also said that this is not an attempt to “re-brand” the GOP.

The first townhall style meeting is to be held on May second in Northern Virginia and along with Cantor and McCain it is expected that Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush will be in attendance.

Today Show Feature: ‘There’s No Such Thing as Virginity’

April 30, 2009 | Filed Under Children, Democrats/Leftists, Family, Feminism, Health, Liberals, Morals/Sex, Religion, Society/Culture, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Jessica Valenti, founder of the vaguely pornographic sounding, has decided that there is no such thing as virginity in America’s young girls and the Today Show is entirely pleased with itself to give her a national TV venue from which to say so. Never mind how silly it all sounds.

On April 22 Valenti and Today pushed the idea that sexually active girls should not be thought of as a problem, that an expectation of virginity is harmful, and that religion is a baneful influence on young women today. Valenti says that if young men can have their sexual exploits given a wink and a nod, then so should the sexual activity of young girls.

Naturally, being a good left-wing, feminist, Valenti draws all the wrong conclusions and advocates all the worst solutions to address the real problems in American society. Just as naturally, NBC gives a legitimate stage for her absurd proclamations and ill-thought-out prescriptions.

ACORN Excising Union Ties?

April 30, 2009 | Filed Under Communism, Congress, Crime, Democrats/Leftists, Free Trade, Liberals, Socialism, Society/Culture, Unions, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

OK, why did the corruption plagued Association for Community Activists for Reform Now (ACORN) suddenly and quietly delete from its website its ties with the corruption plagued Service Employees International Union (SEIU)?

The American Spectator’s Matthew Vadum found the strange deletion of a photo showing SEIU president Andy Stern standing in support of ACORN from February of 2002. The ACORN site was also scrubbed of any mention of two SEIU locals that used to have a prominent place on the ACORN site.

The two SEIU locals, Local 880 and Local 100, have been a part of ACORN’s site for years, but as of this month were scrubbed. Speculation is that the unions don’t want ties to ACORN too well advertised as the unions fight to get the Employee Free Choice Act passed through Congress.

NYTimes Sends American Tourists to One of England’s Most Dangerous Areas for ‘Hip’ Vacation

April 30, 2009 | Filed Under Business, Democrats/Leftists, Guns, Liberals, Media Bias, Security/Safety, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

One would think that The New York Times is purposefully putting American’s in harm’s way with its latest travel section vacation suggestion. If it isn’t doing it on purpose, it certainly is acting almost criminally negligent over its reader’s safety abroad. Back on March 22, the Times suggested that Americans vacation in Deptford, one of England’s most dangerous, crime infested areas. And why would the Times want to send Americans into such a seedy and dangerous place? Because it’s “hip,” man. What else?

The suggestion by the NYTimes for American tourists to visit Deptford brought all manners of jaw-dropping, guffaws from the British press this week. The disbelief is thick over there because Deptford has some of the highest crimes stats in the country — the tenth most violent according to Britain’s Home Office — and Britons simply cannot fathom why The New York Times would willingly send Americans unawares into the heart of such violence and crime.

Government-Imposed Uncertainty Deepens The Recession

-By Thomas E. Brewton

Repeated Federal interventions in the economy make businessmen fearful of what the government may do next. And that fear prolongs recessions.

In Publicly Berating Bankers and Businessmen Has Consequences, I wrote:

In addition to the problem that New Deal regulations prevented reducing costs enough to produce at a profit, businesses did not expand and rehire, because they were in perpetual uncertainty and fear about what FDR would do next. As a consequence, private investment was at historically low levels during the New Deal era.

A Jackboot at Home, an Olive Branch Abroad listed a few of the heavy-handed, arbitrary interventions by the Obama administration, interventions that create great uncertainty and deter business and bankers from revving up production and lending.

I was on Today

Well, I had an interesting afternoon. Got a call from CNN that they needed a second righty blogger for their 12:30 Blogger’s Call segment on their livestream show. (I know, enemy territory, right? Ha, ha)

So, they called me at about 10:45 and I had a little time to get my video and audio all set up before I went live with them. It was a segment with four bloggers (two rightys, two leftys) and we talked with anchors Reggie and Mam about Obama’s first 100 days.

We were all asked to grade Obama. Of course, I gave him a “D.” My chief complaint was how badly he’s bungled foreign policy by giving Chavez such a great propaganda moment at our expense and his cockup with the Brits. I also said his socialist policies are going to be bad for the long run. Etc., etc.

I don’t think there is video of it as it was all live, but I had a good time and look forward to being called back sometime in the future.

Today’s History Lesson: Lincoln’s Disagreement with Obamaism

Barack Obama’s new way socialism is really just as no way as it’s always been. But, regardless of the central American spirit that Obamaism attempts to defeat, it is proclaimed that he is only interested in fixing America. So, because he is only here to help, Obama is deemed a savior by his acolytes.

Another of Obama’s false fronts is his claim to be “just like” Abraham Lincoln, a facade he wears with relish. The claim is, after all, a perfect cover for his essentially anti-American agenda. What could be more American than the fulfillment of Lincoln’s efforts to free the slaves but a black man being elected to the presidency? The mere fact of his election seems to affirm the better angels of our nature.

But, here I’d like to report a quote that tends to show that Lincoln would not have approved of a president Barack Obama. Not because Obama is a black man, but because he is a socialist.

Shocker: Obama Staffers Attend Secret Dinners With Lefty Media

April 29, 2009 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Barack Obama, Democrats/Leftists, Liberals, Media Bias, President, Socialism, Society/Culture, Warner Todd Huston | 2 Comments

-By Warner Todd Huston

The Washington Post’s Howard Kurtz has let the cat out of the bag in the Post’s April 27 issue about a regularly scheduled secret media dinner attended by some of the top left-wing journalists in the country. But it isn’t just the lefty scribblers that have attended these secret, off-the-record dinners for these gatherings have each featured a guest. Rahm Emanuel, Sec. of the Treasury Tim Geithner, and Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke have all recently had their chance to schmooze the press and guide them with the spin desired by the White House.

So, not only does Obama’s Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel have secret daily phone calls with which to program the media’s coverage of the White House, now it is revealed that Emanuel and other Obama staffers have been attending secret dinners to help the press “understand” what the White House wants reported? As Kurtz says, it all sounds “rather cozy,” doesn’t it?

Pianist Cancels All U.S. Concerts Over Foreign Policy

I respect Polish concert pianist Krystian Zimmerman’s moxie. Oh, he hasn’t a clue what he is talking about, but he has the courage of his convictions at least, which is more than I can say for all those wild-eyed, half-informed, hypocrites in the American entertainment industry.

You see, a few days ago, pianist Zimmerman announced in the middle of a concert that he would no longer be playing concerts in the U.S. because he is against U.S. foreign policy. If you truly want to know this loon’s political complaints, there is a long, pointless and boring story about it in the L.A. Times on April 28.

Me, I couldn’t care less about this half-wit’s gripes. But I do applaud him for having the backbone to do something about it. He will forgo his money, cancel his concerts and leave this country. I say good for him. It’s about time one of these pampered “stars” in the entertainment industry finally has the stones to live up to the blather.

Looks like Washington Post Editorial Page Editor Fred Hiatt sort of put his foot in his mouth — or his pen as the case may be — in an April 27 editorial where he as much as called America’s older workers “lumbering” and less talented than “younger, nimbler” employees. In a nation that has one of its largest blocks of citizens in the “older” category, those over 40, it seems like Hiatt just insulted the largest number of Americans. Not the best way to sell newspapers, eh?

In his headlined “600,000 Bad Hires? Making Federal Jobs Cool Once Again,” Hiatt seems to be urging The One to come to the rescue of the jobs market. Well, not real jobs, but government jobs, anyway.

Here is how he jabs workers over 40.

Specter: An Opportunist Guilty of Political Treason

April 29, 2009 | Filed Under Communism, Congress, Conservatives, Democrats/Leftists, Elections, Frank Salvato, Liberals, Patriotism, Republicans, Security/Safety, Society/Culture | Comments Off

-By Frank Salvato

US Sen. Arlen Specter (R-PA) announced this week that he was switching political parties. Initially he said that he was doing so because he didn’t want to be “judged by the Pennsylvania Republican primary electorate,” the same electorate he courted in his last election. But later, after he realized his statement depicted him as an ungrateful political opportunist, he said his decision was based on the idea that the Republican Party – which has moved more to the center in recent years – has “moved too far to the Right.” The truth is that Specter is a political opportunist who has literally thrown his constituency under the bus just to save his political career. In the political sense, he is a traitor.

The element of surprise surrounding this announcement comes in that he chose a time when the Republican Party can least afford to lose even one from their ranks. With anti-American, neo-Marxist Al Franken likely to be seated as the junior senator from Minnesota and the two Independent senators, Joseph Lieberman (CT) and Bernie Sanders (VT), voting with Democrats on social issues, President Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have their “last man needed” to advance social programs that will redefine the authority of the American government and literally cripple the economy. Arlen Specter has handed Barack Obama the total of his agenda for at least the next two years and there isn’t a damn thing the Republicans can do about it.

Homeland Security’s Unsecure Secretary

-By John Armor

Today comes news that the Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, is replacing Roger Mackin with Phillip Mudd. Who? What? So?

Roger Mackin was the undersecretary for intelligence and analysis. He was responsible for the memo issued just before the 750+ Tea Parties attended by 1 million+ Americans. You know that memo, which said people who oppose abortion, attend church, and own legal guns are potential terrorists. And don’t forget that it also said veterans returning from Iraq or Afghanistan are risky, too.

Before talking about that appalling memo, let’s back up a minute. What is the purpose of the Homeland Security Department? It is to protect Americans in their homes, businesses, schools and shopping malls from being slaughtered by (mostly) Islamofascists who have announced their intentions to keep killing Americans, as they did on 9/11.

Chavez’ Penn, Or How Santa Monica High Should Hang Its Penn in Shame

-By Warner Todd Huston

Someone needs to sue Santa Monica High School for education malpractice on behalf of the ill-educated Sean Penn. I mean, the man is nearly illiterate and he certainly has no grasp on history, philosophy, or statecraft. But his wacko left-wing inanities aside, it is his illiteracy that seems the most lamentable. Oh, it isn’t Rosie O’Donnell illiterate, hers is a special class of insensibility all by itself, but Penn’s brand is proof of the lowest quality of education. I mean the man can barely put two words together sensibly much less exhibit a grasp of grammar and syntax. It really is a crime how badly he’s been educated.

Take for instance his latest Huffington Post blathering where he seems to be saying that all we need to win the day in international relations is to give a “smile.” Aside from being childishly simplistic in concept, it has some of the worst word usage and syntax I’ve seen for a long time in what is supposed to be a leader of opinion (again, Rosie aside).

Now, I don’t claim to be the king of grammar, myself. But, if I had millions of dollars as he does I’d at least be smart enough to hire an editor so that I don’t end up looking like a complete moron. Unfortunately, I am one of the po’folk, so I have to muddle through as best as I can.

His wind up is amusing for its utter lack of introspection.

An Intolerance for Southern Culture

April 28, 2009 | Filed Under Conservatives, Constitution, Crime, Democrats/Leftists, History, Liberals, Media Bias, Race, Society/Culture, Warner Todd Huston | 1 Comment

-By Warner Todd Huston

In July of 2008 a national hotel chain manager had a man arrested for displaying a Confederate flag in his hotel room window in Concord, North Carolina. It happened that Concord’s Wingate Inn had booked guests that had come to participate in the annual convention for an organization known as the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV), a group that celebrates family ties to that Confederate service of 145 years ago. To be sure the hotel manager knew full well that every guest would be displaying Confederate flags everywhere they went. On shirts, on book bags, on posters, on their cars these dozens of guests had Confederate flags on display. Little flags, medium sized flags, and big flags filled the hotel.

Yet hotel management called the cops on this one guy.

So, what happened? Why did this hotel manager imagine he had the right to force just this one guy, Basil D. Childress of Kentucky, to pull down his flag while ignoring all the others? Why were the police idiotic enough to actually arrest the non-violent and perfectly compliant hotel guest instead of telling the hotel manager that he was acting foolishly?

Harry Reid’s Arrogant Obama

-By Warner Todd Huston

Harry Reid made a mistake. I know that is over generalized so I’ll narrow it down to a specific mistake because there are far too many from which to choose. The mistake I am taking about is in the addendum to his book titled “The Good Fight,” ghost written by Mark Warren, that is about to come out in paperback.

Reid added a 15-page epilogue to the paperback version that confirms Obama’s arrogance. In it, Reid claims to have approached Obama after a speech on Bush’s war policies that Reid heard Obama give just after becoming the Junior Senator from Illinois. After congratulating Obama on the speech, Reid recounts that Obama replied, “I have a gift, Harry.”

Well, that wasn’t too self-congratulatory, too arrogant, what it now?

The Fiduciary Trust

Everyone who is responsible for financial transactions and decisions that effect the wellbeing of others understands the term, fiduciary. There is a code of ethics and duty which governs that relationship. I will quote the on line Business Dictionary to help you understand this idea of fiduciary so you may see how essential it is in the conduct of business affairs: (bold is mine)

Special relationship of trust and confidence which, in the words justice Benjamin Nathan Cardozo (1870-1938; US Supreme court judge from 1932 to 1938) is “something more than the ordinary honor of the marketplace … the very punctilio of honesty and forthrightness.” Fiduciary relationships exist between an agent and principal, testator and trustee, testator and executor, ward and guardian, customer and bank, client and attorney, patient and doctor, partner and partner, stockholders (shareholders) and directors, etc. In these relationships law demands a higher than ordinary degree of care and responsibility from the dominant or trusted party.

Each morning, as I drive my wife to the train, we listen to our local news talk radio station, WIND AM560 in Chicago. Their morning team, John and Cisco, offer a solid discussion on most issues presented, much more balanced and cerebral than the other talkers in Chicago. On this day, and, in fact, for most of the week, they have been addressing “Earth Week.” Today, as we made our way to the train, Cisco said something that struck a chord with both of us. To paraphrase, he said that he was a bit annoyed that Earth Day had morphed into Earth Week. To which my wife, Nancy, said, “You know, they have a week for the Erath but just one day for the Constitution.”

Nancy’s statement is true, not only for Earth Week but for a multitude of celebratory causes and events. We have Arthritis Week, Eating Disorders Week, Contraceptive Week, Celebrate Your Name Week and Let’s Talk About Sex Week. We even have entire months that are dedicated to causes and ideologies. There is National Prune Breakfast Month, Black History Month, Boost-Your-Self-Esteem Month, National Social Workers Month, National Salsa Month, Gay Pride Month, Lasagna Awareness Month, National Hispanic Heritage Month, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender History Month, Wear Brown Shoes Month and National Toilet Tank Repair Month.

But when it comes to the study and appreciation of the document that allows us all to celebrate and expand our awareness of these “important” issues we halfheartedly designate one day in September. US Constitution Day is September 17th.

Guest: Thousands Protest Lifetime TV’s New Father-Bashing Reality Show ‘Deadbeat Dads’

April 27, 2009 | Filed Under Business, Children, Crime, Democrats/Leftists, Entertainment, Family, Media Bias, Morals/Sex, Rights | 2 Comments

-By Glenn Sacks

Thousands of protesters have called and written Lifetime Television this week to protest Lifetime’s new father-bashing reality show Deadbeat Dads. Last year, similar protests drove the show—originally called Bad Dads–off of Fox.

According to Reuters, in Deadbeat Dads Jim Durham, director of the National Child Support Center, “functions as a sort of ‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’ for tracking deadbeats.” Durham targets dads by “making their lives miserable — foreclosing on their house, repossessing their car. He will squeeze them… It’s ambush reality TV.”

The program’s depiction of divorced dads is a horrendous distortion. Research clearly shows that most divorced dads pay their child support and strive to remain a part of their children’s lives, often under very difficult circumstances. The Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement’s own data shows that two-thirds of “deadbeat dads” earn poverty level wages—only 4% earn even $40,000 a year.

About Dick Cheney: How the Old Media Creates a False Attack

April 27, 2009 | Filed Under Conservatives, Democrats/Leftists, GOP, Media Bias, President, Republicans, Security/Safety, Society/Culture, Warner Todd Huston | 3 Comments

-By Warner Todd Huston

The newest false meme invented by the Old Media is this claim that ex-presidents and ex-vice presidents have some sort of “tradition of silence” where it concerns commenting on those that take residence in the White House after they leave. The reason the Old Media is pushing this false claim is because Dick Cheney has been commenting on Obama’s security mistakes and the Old Media wants to scold Cheney for his efforts to get the truth to the people.

Certainly it is true that some ex-chief executives have maintained silence after they left office. Still, it isn’t really true that there has been any long tradition of staying silent out of some sort of respect for the new president. But, no matter how many past presidents/vice presidents have remained quiet, the one glaring exception to that so-called tradition is the vp just before Cheney: Al Gore. And this man has been absent in the Media’s attack on Cheney.

Well, we can’t say no one saw this one coming, but Obama has turned back rules that had been put in place to force unions to be more transparent in their financial reporting. These rules were meant to stop union fraud, theft, and embezzlement but in an effort to pay back his supporters, Obama has turned these rules back so that unions can find it easier to hide illicit financial transactions.

Naturally, one of the chief opponents to union transparency that fought the Bush administration, Deborah Greenfield, is now in the Obama administration. It was Greenfield that fought the financial reporting rules when she was a lawyer for the AFL-CIO. She was against forcing unions to account for all their illicit cash and secret accounts then. Now that she is in charge of implementing such rules she has been a major part of eliminating them so that unions could more easily hide their financial dealings from union members and the government.

It could not be nearer to what you suspect. Under his new regime, President Barack Obama’s Department of Homeland Security sent an intimidating message to law enforcement agencies nationwide calculated to silence any American who does not agree with the president’s social notions and political agenda.

It is obvious that Rev. Jeremiah Wright is the driving force behind Obama’s paranoia. What the future president took away from Rev. Wright’s sermons contributes to Obama’s outlook and resultant policies, both at home and abroad. We have become a weakened country. Our enemies see a president who is ready to cozy up to any unscrupulous dictator who wants to inflict harm against our country, while Obama calls it a meaningful dialogue.

AP Barf Alert: Obama Has no ‘Rookie Jitters,’ is ‘Extraordinarily at Ease’ as President

I am not a doctor, but I play one on the Internet. So, take the following as a prescription for what ails you. Now, if for some unexplainable reason you have been feeling queasy since November of last year, if you have felt like you want to throw up but just can’t seem to get that bile to overflow, well I have a little something here that will surely cause that gag reflex to result in a healthy expulsion of bubbling acids. The Associated Press would call it a “news story,” but it serves a far better purpose as syrup of ipecac than anything else.

Anyway, if you need a ready emetic, try giving a read to our pal Liz Sidoti’s doting portrayal of President Obama as a “no jitters” expert that is “extraordinarily at ease” sitting in the big chair. He’s a fellow that has mastered the office even though he has “youth and inexperience,” and he’s Confident almost to a fault.” Obama is the greatest story ever told as far as Liz is concerned… and after only four short months in office to boot.

But, wait. There’s more puke inspiring sycophancies yet to come… read on if you dare.

I’ve been thinking a lot about the trillions of dollars that have been spent or allocated in Obama’s plan to, supposedly, get the economy back on track. There is a lot about this that has a bad smell to it, but one aspect really is putrid.

Let’s imagine a friend came to you and asked for a loan to enable him to keep his home and feed his family. You would love to be able to help him out, but you have no cash. Feeling like you must do something for your friend, you offer to give him your CreditPlus card that has an unlimited line of credit. He is very appreciative and you feel you have done a good thing.

About three months later, your CreditPlus statement comes in the mail and shows new purchases of $11, 600. You are shocked but decide to calmly ask your friend how he and the family are doing and see what he says. He is up front and tells you how much he’s spent on your card before you even ask. You let him know that you are glad to have been able to help. He then says he is very appreciative and he is sorry that he has created that amount of a burden for you to have to deal with in the future. He says he hopes you will be able to pay the debt without too much trouble. You are flabbergasted that he expects you to pay off the debt that he has borrowed from you.

Now, back to reality.

The Obama progeny are well into their studies at Sidwell Friends School. As their parents, Barack and Michelle have every right to enroll their daughters in the school they think best for their children. Ironically, this is one of the many prerogatives the President’s most enthusiastic supporters would frown upon should you, the average American, decide to exercise them.

For decades now, liberals and secularists have argued that those pursuing nonpublic education for their children ought to be held in suspicion for exhibiting insufficient devotion to the COMMUNITY. Some might try to obfuscate the matter by claiming that that they do not oppose private education as much as they support the public alternatives.
