With the passing of Margaret Thatcher, one of the greatest, most powerful women in recent political history, the American Old Media establishment is all abuzz about… Hillary Clinton. To their minds, talk of the powerful and brilliant Thatcher naturally brings to mind the wife of one of their favorite presidents and Hillary, as far as they are concerned, is somehow “just like” Margaret Thatcher.
I know, I know. Stop your laughing. Hillary really is just lIke Margaret Thatcher.
Or maybe not.
But, of course you should laugh. The idea that Hillary Clinton is anywhere near at the level of a Margaret Thatcher is laughable, indeed. The fact is, there is no comparison. Hillary is an influence peddling, lightweight compared to the great Margaret Thatcher, and I am not even talking about ideology.
The difference between Maggie Thatcher’s accomplishments and Hillary’s couldn’t be more stark–and not in Hillary’s favor, either.

MSNBC fabulist Chris Matthews has made a new pronouncement, this time that Hillary Clinton is in the most “commanding position” to be anointed president since the general of all the U.S. Armies in WWII, Dwight D. Eisenhower, ran for President in 1952. Matthews also gushed that she is the “most celebrated woman leader” in the entire world.
Matthews began his April 1 broadcast pushing hard on a Hillary for 2016 campaign and his latest comments were aimed at building Hillary up to the level of smartest-woman-in-the-world status. Matthews also likened Mrs. Clinton to WWII hero Dwight D. “Ike” Eisenhower.
Interestingly, Matthews also seemed to apologize for making such an effusive statement because he’s a man.
Matthews noted that woman have been forced to vote for “men of uneven quality, uneven character and uneven greatness” their whole lives and now the urge to vote a woman into the White House will be too much to resist.

The inordinate praise for now former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been thick throughout the media, but no other coverage was more obsequious than ABC’s. Cynthia McFadden topped off this praise by comparing Clinton to no less than Thomas Jefferson.
On the January 30 broadcast of Nightline, McFadden spoke to Clinton in what was billed as her “last television interview in office.” The interview was conducted in front of a statue of Thomas Jefferson and at one point in the interview McFadden effusively equated Clinton to Jefferson. Motioning toward the statue of the founder, McFadden said, “As Jefferson looks over our shoulder, who I would only point out, was Secretary of State who went on to become president.”

There has been much speculation about what retiring Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will do with her time after she leaves the State Dept. Some imagine she’ll run for president, but Hillary herself is now saying she’ll just retire to activism, writing, and speech making.
In a recent interview, Clinton claims that she has “absolutely no plans to run” for president in 2016 and promises that she is “out of politics right now.”
Clinton said she planned to focus on speaking, writing and working on issues to benefit women and girls. But when pressed about why President Obama hasn’t appointed more women to his cabinet, Clinton waved off criticism saying, “What we have to do is take a look at the broad picture.”

In the days following the attacks on our embassy in Benghazi, Libya last year the Obama administration insisted the whole thing was a result of Muslim ire at an anti-Islam film posted to Youtube. Today, after Hillary testified in front of the Senate over her role in the debacle, White House spokesman Jay Carney is blasting Republicans for their “obsession” about the film.
During her testimony, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton continued to blame the Benghazi attack on “militants” and got agitated over a question from Republican Senator Ron Johnson (WI) who asked about why the administration illegitimately focused on the video for so long.
As Sen. Johnson tried to pin Clinton down on the issue, the Secretary raised her voice saying, “The fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest? Or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they’d go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make?”

New evidence shows there were security threats in Libya in the months prior to the deadly September 11 attack that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans. Despite these threats, the State Department left its personnel there to fend for themselves.

Referring to events in Libya and Egypt today, Obama said there was “no justification” for Muslim mobs violating US sovereign territory and murdering our embassy people and ambassador.
Hilary also said there was “no justification.”
Presidential spokesman Jay Carney said there was “no justification.” That was the administration’s line for the day. It’s an abamination.
Whenever one says that there’s no justification for a particular action, that means there are situations when that action might be deemed justified.

So, not only was Bill Clinton officially the first black president, now he can add another great plaudit to his resume. According to Vogue magazine’s contributing editor Jonathan van Meter, Bill, along with wifey Hillary, might just be the “world’s greatest parents” because of how they raised daughter Chelsea. So they have that going for them, which is nice.
This slobbering sycophancy all came tumbling out during an interview with van Meter conducted by CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield aired on CNN on the morning of August 15.
As the subject turned to Clinton progeny Chelsea, van Meter really poured out the syrup.
I think one of the things the Clintons will go down in history for, it may very well being the world’s greatest parents. I mean, they did such an incredible job of protecting her from the likes of us, basically, and it’s an amazing thing that she’s decided to step out finally and do this.
Well, since he lost out for world’s greatest husband due to that whole serial adultery thing, I guess being the world’s greatest parent is a good runner up, isn’t it?

Another odious United Nations treaty may soon come before President Obama and he’s reportedly quite eager to sign onto this one because it may result in the end of our Constitutional Second Amendment rights. It may also turn over to the U.N. the control of the manufacture of all weapons and weapons related items, even hunting arms and related merchandise.
This treaty, the U. N. Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), could be finalized sometime this month and critics say it presents many dangers to American sovereignty, foreign policy, and safety, not to mention our Second Amendment rights.
The scope of this treaty is quite broad, covering items as small as rifle scopes all the way to such huge items as battleships and instruments of the major power’s war machines. It not only covers the final manufactured weapons and weapons-related merchandise, it also covers the technology and means for their production. This treaty seems intended to place in U.N. hands every last thing related to any kind of weapon, regardless of its use. This includes hunting weapons.
U.S. authorities have tried to assuage American’s fears by telling us, for instance, that the ATT will exclude hunting weapons. But this is quite unlikely as most of the countries involved in negotiations are against excluding such weapons.
Still Obama administration officials say fears are over blown. Acting Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security Rose Gottemoeller recently took to her Twitter account to try to make Americans feel better about the treaty by assuring us all that it “will not in any way handicap the legitimate right of self-defense.”

Hillary Clinton is no sex expert or Bible expert, in fact, I’m not sure she is an expert on anything. Moreover, does any sane, honest person think she would be Secretary of State if her name were Paula Jones?
Recently Clinton, talking like a sex expert and Bible expert, made some really stupid remarks in promoting perversion (or to be politically correct, the homosexual agenda). She is not satisfied that the homosexual crowd has taken control of the media, the entertainment industry, mainline church groups, and academia but now she and Obama would raise the stakes and go for a global acceptance of perverted practices! She declared that it is “one of the remaining human rights challenges of our time,” saying it was similar to the effort of ending racial, sexual, or religious discrimination. Hand me a barf bag. All Blacks should be indignant at her nonsensical babbling.
Hilary went for the religious jugular when she blasted Christians who object on Bible grounds to her hedonism. “These objections,” she said, are “not unlike the justification offered for violent practices towards women like honor killings, widow burning, or female genital mutilation.” She was trying to convince us that the crusade for approval of a man climbing into bed with another man and a woman with woman is equally honorable to the crusade to eliminate honor killings, widow burning, or female genital mutilation! Maybe Bill didn’t inhale those funny cigarettes but Hillary sure did.

Upon watching footage of Hillary Clinton mocking Herman Cain in Afghan president Hamid Karzai’s presence, one could wonder: would she really want to stack her accomplishments up against Cain’s?
I mean real accomplishment – not being the poster girl for nepotism and cultural affirmative action.
But before outlining the distinguished career of the esteemed erstwhile Mizz Rodham, let’s review what was said to Mr. Karzai (another individual, incidentally, who owes his position to an American president). Clinton was addressing Cain’s statement that he probably wouldn’t know the name of the leader of “Ubeki-beki-beki-beki-stan-stan” and that it wasn’t necessary for a president to know the names of “small insignificant states around the world.” Now, admittedly, Cain isn’t doing himself any good with his frequent reckless statements. Yet, unlike some folks, he does understand Economics 101 and authored his own success by actually creating something. And it is this history that Clinton referred to in a laughter-interspersed exchange with Karzai that went like this:

Now that President Obama has formally announced his candidacy for reelection, speculation has begun swirling about a possible primary challenge from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, despite her having told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer in no uncertain terms that she would not run.
It’s not surprising that people dismiss her statement on the matter, since denials of presidential ambition are among the most frequently broken political promises, and Mrs. Clinton was not exactly renowned for her candor during her years as first lady. What’s so curious is that people believe she’s capable of winning the nomination over the incumbent president, when in reality she’s the one politician in the weakest position from which to challenge him.
As her husband’s “co-president,” Hillary tried unsuccessfully to establish so-called “universal health care,” as Obama has since done. She cannot now appeal to big-government liberals by saying she agrees with Obama, but wasn’t competent to produce the same result. Nor could she gain much traction among the Obama plan’s critics on the basis of her failure to implement it. Thus, Obama’s greatest domestic policy liability would be nullified.

According to the framers of the Constitution one of the original intentions of ordaining that revered document was to insure domestic tranquility. The term was used in the preamble to the Constitution and has never been used to adjudicate any constitutional questions.
In this moment in time, where a sitting President has recently announced to the nation that our laws needn’t be enforced (DOMA – Defense of Marriage Act) it would hardly seem like the time to drag the preamble into the fray and look for some meaning or guidance. Yet, at the moment it may be all we have.
It may be agreed upon that the Constitution does not contemplate the secession of states from the Union but who would have guessed that we would elect a President who would secede from the Constitution. In this day of high perversion, can America deal with this complexity?

The New York Times is reporting that the mixed messages received from the White House on the Egyptian crisis were the fault of the State Department:
A president who himself is often torn between idealism and pragmatism was navigating the counsel of a traditional foreign policy establishment led by Mrs. Clinton, Mr. Biden and Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates, against that of a next-generation White House staff who worried that the American preoccupation with stability could put a historic president on the wrong side of history.
Translation: It’s all Hillary’s fault that Obama is now being criticized for his lack of leadership during the 18 days of protests in Egypt that finally resulted in the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak.

I am here in Cancun, Mexico investigating the U.N. Climate Change Conference to see what sort of wonderful solutions to save our very planet are being planned for all of us here in sunny Mexico. It’s always nice that we can come to save the planet… at a nice resort hotel complex… on a beach… in a moderate clime… isn’t it?
For those of you that are unaware of what this conference is about, this conference is being called COP16/CMP6. That stands for — prepare to doze off here — the 16th edition of Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP) and the 6th Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP). Just like the UN to puff itself up with grand sounding titles, isn’t it?
And it’s a good thing we are here in time to save the earth, too. I mean what with thousands of delegates having winged their way here on private jets and as they drive themselves about in fleets of armored SUVs, as well as the hundreds if not a thousand or more Agentes Policiacos Federales and military personnel driving about in trucks toting machine guns and armored vests to keep us all safe from drug cartels, why it’s about the nick of time that we are here to save the planet.

In a move that is oddly fitting for a President who failed to interrupt his Hawaiian vacation to respond to a terrorist attack, Barack Obama is heading to Massachusetts to assist his base of union and community organizers.
“Obama is headed to Massachusetts Sunday to campaign for Democrat Martha Coakley, whose race against Republican Scott Brown has narrowed to a toss-up as voters zero in on the cost of a massive health insurance bill in Congress.”
As the left struggles to maintain “Ted Kennedy’s Seat” the cracks are beginning to show in a radical agenda many believe was crafted by leaders at groups like the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. As Brown supporters eye the state warily, ACORN has largely gone underground in Massachusetts. Beginning in the 1970′s ACORN has operated silently in states across the country conducting “progressive experiments” in liberal states like Massachusetts through the use of organizing around ballot initiatives.

Just hearing her name causes me pain and normally I wouldn’t waste a minute’s time worrying about what this vacuous little child has to say on much of anything — as is evidence by the fact that this is the first time my keyboard has shuddered out her name. However, Meghan McCain’s latest blog post is a piece of conventional wisdom that, while not unique to little Meaggie’s fallow mind (which itself is de rigeuer for the girl, sadly), it is one that has been heard since the day women began to stride into the world of western politics. However, it is one that I think no longer applies. So, I’d like to address the empty reasoning on women in politics despite that it emanated from McCain’s somewhat barren pen.
Here is McCain’s prosaic premise: The attacks on Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton have made it harder for women and is proof that no woman will ever be “just right” for politics. To which anyone not looking to make excuses can only say a resounding “yeah, right.”
The simple matter of fact is that anyone that clamors for great power will stir great passions in those whom they wish to govern. And those that find wide support among the people will find that such support is ephemeral once decisions start having to be made. It doesn’t matter if the powerful is man or woman.

One of the things that brings me to the boiling point is when I hear elected officials tell me what “Americans want” or what “Americans think.” To believe that today’s federally elected politicians understand – or care – what their constituents want, never mind Americans on the whole, after they belittled town hall attendees and ignored the citizenry’s opposition to government-run healthcare is to exist in fantasyland. No, federally elected politicians (and in many cases local politicians, as well) only invoke the wants and thoughts of “Americans” when they want to bolster their political positions and those have more to do with special interest groups and ideology than what Americans really think and want.
How many times have you heard Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, President Obama or any number of their surrogates – and to be fair and honest, it does happen on both sides of the aisle – begin a sentence with, “What Americans really want…” or “The Average American thinks that…” It is an insult to the intelligence of the citizenry, no matter how dumbed-down the American populace has become.
Another facet to this intellectual arrogance is when an elected official or public figure uses a “broad brush” to address an entire group or demographic, regardless of whether it is favorably or unfavorably.

In a Meet the Press interview with Bill Clinton on September 27, NBC’s David Gregory seemed to assume as accepted fact that the only way to fix healthcare was for Americans to “pay higher taxes.” He also asked the former chief executive if the “vast right wing conspiracy” that his wife bemoaned in 1998 was now in high gear attacking President Obama.
During the interview, Gregory brought up the “big challenges” that Obama was facing, particularly with the healthcare issue. In his question, though, Gregory did not phrase his healthcare question by using qualifiers like “Obama says,” or “Democrats claim.” He seemed to simply take the president’s position as accepted fact without qualifiers.
On healthcare, Gregory asked Clinton if Obama was doing a good job. “And on health care, as this debate rolls through,” Gregory asked, ” do you think the President has leveled with the American people on this fact, that Americans are going to have to pay higher taxes if they want health care reform?”
Notice that Gregory asked Clinton if Obama had done a good job leveling with the American people on “this fact” and that we are “going to have to pay higher taxes” to get that reform? Gregory didn’t say, for instance, that Obama “feels” that the only way to reform healthcare is to pay higher taxes. In essence, Gregory asked his question assuming that Obama’s position is essentially true.

Sickeningly, an effluvium of nostalgia over the debacle concert near the town of Woodstock, New York in August of 1969 is everywhere. It’s the big 4-0. We should take this anniversary to remember that the catch phrase of the Woodstock generation eventually became “don’t trust anyone over 30.” In the case of the white wash of what really happened with the concert in Max Yasgur’s field, the warning is fitting because the truth seems to be forgotten for the fluffy propaganda of how wonderful the concert was. The concert is also emblematic of some of the vapid 60′s generation — by no means all of them, but the worst of them, to be sure.
In this single event we see some of the worst aspects of Bill Clinton’s generation of twits, thieves, anti-Americans, fools, and ignoramuses all wrapped up with the arrogance that we’ve come to associate with the extreme left in America today. Just think of how this messy event went down.
Originally Michael Lang, John Roberts, Joel Rosenman, and Artie Kornfeld imagined that they were creating a for-profit venture in the initial planning stages of the concert. Of course, we all know that the concert became “free” the moment too many people showed up and arrogantly crashed the poorly secured facilities the promoters created on the Yasgur’s farmland. Sadly, the freeloaders that came without tickets didn’t care that other people were losing money, they didn’t care that they were destroying someone’s property, and they paid no mind to what was right. They wanted something for free and arrogantly stole it outright. That attitude pretty much exemplifies the Clinton generation.
But that wasn’t the only ill-planned aspect of this concert. The mess started from day one.

Mark Twain’s cynical comment that, “No man’s life, liberty, or property is safe while the legislature is in session.” is even truer today than when he first uttered those words in 1866. So, America, let’s all let out a collective sigh of relief that our increasingly kleptocratic Congress is currently in recess! Time to hit the beach and frolic in the waves just like our President and Representatives!
Oh, wait, we can’t. We’re too busy clinging to our jobs to take time off for fun, working two jobs to pay for the ever-increasing cost of living or too broke from being unemployed to go any where for vacation this year. Bummer. Guess we’ll just have to live vicariously through watching our hardly-working, always-traveling, apologist-in-Chief, President Obama, and the DC Ruling Elites splash about for us in one of America’s most exclusive, swank and expensive vacation spots ever, Martha’s Vineyard.
Beloved by preppy snobs of either party, Martha’s Vineyard is a pricey haven away from the common herd. It’s been the vacation get-away for celebrities and politicians for decades and it’s not uncommon for the likes of Kate Jackson, Steve Tyler, Reese Witherspoon, Beyoncé Knowles and Meg Ryan to bump into Senator John Kerry, President Bill Clinton and Senator Ted Kennedy.

The Democrat/Socialist Party’s plan to nationalize healthcare exemplifies the essence of social justice: an invidious urge to destroy what exists and a faith that social harmony depends upon making everyone equally miserable.
Liberal-progressives estimate that 46 million people, 15% of the population, lack health insurance. In order to provide them insurance, liberal-progressives intend to force each of us to forgo any vestige of individuality and to accept a prison-like regimentation of our healthcare.
When Hillary Clinton was working in 1993 to impose socialized medicine upon us, the Washington Monthly, one of the purest strains of socialism within the liberal-progressive, mainstream media, editorialized forthrightly that a fundamental aim and benefit of Hillary Care would be forcing business leaders to sit for hours in crowded doctors’ waiting rooms to receive medical care. There is more than a bit of nastiness in this liberal-progressive urge to smash what others have built and to drag people down to their level.

On July 15, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton appeared before the Council on Foreign Relations, the much maligned organization often at the center of many global conspiracy theories.
We won’t talk about the merits of the CFR itself, here, but what made me curious is the treatment that MSNBC gave the Clinton speech. It appears that MSNBC edited out Clinton’s opening statement thanking the CFR for having her. When reading what she said at the outset of the speech one might become suspicious that MSNBC was trying to provide cover for the Secretary of State whose comments opened her up to the tongue wagging of conspiracy buffs.

The Washington Post had an interesting article on June 25 headlined, “A First Lady Who Demands Substance.” I think it was meant to highlight that fact that Michelle Obama is more than a mere first lady but is a strong, substantive person — which is, by the way, without question. Unfortunately, though, it ended up revealing a Michelle Obama that is an angry, arrogant, martinet that isn’t aware that “first lady” is an honorary title that has no proper, Constitutional role and is not an elected position with legal, legitimate powers of its own.
The story penned by Lois Romano comes on the heels of Michelle’s dismissal of her chief of staff, Jackie Norris, who was replaced by 61-year-old Susan Sher. Apparently, this switch is supposed to mark the arrival of the new Michelle Obama, the one that will have “impact” at the “fulcrum of power and policy.” To pursue this new “power” Michelle has hired a full-time speech writer and has told her staff to think “strategically.”
Impact? Power? Strategically? I have but one question: who elected you to this “power,” Michelle? I also have an answer: no one.

Some attention was paid to the fact that the newest social networking website, Twitter, had decided to push off its scheduled maintenance Tuesday morning as the situation in Iran became steadily more embroiled in conflict. As it happened, Twitter was a major source of information coming out of that repressed society as news was happening. Twitter had, though, scheduled a few hours down time just when Iran was at a peak of activity. So, in order to keep the flow of communication to the outside world flowing, Twitter announced it would not turn off its service until Iran calmed down.
This is pretty interesting news, that a mere social networking site was so deeply involved in momentous news of the day and that it became so relied upon by people hungry for news and interested in discussing a major democratic movement is definitely a new thing. It is especially interesting because the U.S. media so badly fell down on its job of reporting activities in Iran making Twitter a vital tool for communication. But what was even more interesting was that Obama’s State Department tried to claim credit for Twitter’s decision to stay in operation during the day.

Hillary Clinton invited a controversial Muslim from Virginia, Esam Omeish, to participate in a conference call of Muslim leaders last week following President Obama’s call to reach out to Muslims in Cairo, Egypt. Omeish made headlines after it was discovered that he told a crowd at a pro-Palestinian rally in 2000 that “the jihad way is the way to liberate your land.”
So how did this radical Muslim end up as a member of Hillary Clinton’s outreach effort to loyal American Muslims? Is this just another example of the poor vetting process that goes on in the Obama administration? Did Hillary even know this man’s background before she invited him to participate in this conference call? Did she know this man’s outrageous Jihadist tendencies before her office contacted him?Next Page »
