Euromoonbats Ban Dog Breeds

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:40 PM

The sanctimonious bureauweenies running the European Union have gotten so carried away with their intrusive regulations that they are now effectively banning breeds of dogs.

The European Convention on the Protection of Pet Animals act would set such severe limits on breeding that when it is ratified, it could mean the end of several popular breeds. The bulldog, once emblematic of British toughness, will be a symbol of Britain's decline when it ceases to exist at the behest of the limp-wristed moonbats in Brussels.

Bureaucrats now see fit to set precise limits on characteristics such as the length of the dog's back relative to its legs, etc. The requirements are insanely particular, yet vague enough that dog breeders won't know for sure exactly what is being banned until they find themselves arrested for breeding politically incorrect dogs.

Siamese and Persian cats could also find themselves banned. If only a means could be found to prevent the breeding of moonbat bureaucrats.

Hippy Photo Op Flops

Posted by Dave Blount at 1:34 PM

Yesterday moonbats descended on the Mall in DC with the idea of spelling out IMPEACH! with their malodorous bodies so that the media could take pictures from the top of the Washington Monument. Fortunately, their numbers were so small they had to downsize their plans. WaPo describes the participants:

There were mothers dressed in pink, Naderites, peaceniks in tie-dyed T-shirts, a guy in a George Bush mask wearing prison stripes, and one Robert Greenough, with two dandelions entwined in his long red beard.

Jaime Todaro of the treasonous Code Pink couldn't figure out the low attendance. Four peace medallions dangled from her ears as she whined that people imagined their own lives to be more important than loopy moonbat politics.

Take heart, moonbats. Congressman Abscam Jack Murtha (D-PA) agrees that the President should be impeached for not complying with Democrat policy regarding Iraq.

BBC Promotes San Francisco Christianity

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:49 AM

If all went as planned, BBC Radio 4 listeners were treated yesterday to a "gay Mass" broadcast from San Francisco.

The blasphemous "Mass" was to be held at the Most Holy Redeemer Catholic Church in the gay-friendly Castro district. This church has featured transvestite bingo nights, at which sex toys and pornography were handed out as prizes by the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, who dress as nuns. Other activities of this group have included parading naked through the city to advertise a "hunky Jesus" contest. Their motto sums up liberal perversions of Christianity: "Go and sin some more."

The "Mass" was to feature prayers and readings tailored to homosexuals, whose exceedingly unwholesome practices are explicitly forbidden by the Bible. But according to Jesuit priest Donal Godfrey, who was slated to preside, homosexuality is "simply another gift from God who created us as rainbow people."

The Beeb's objective in broadcasting this abomination could only be to stick a finger in the eye of any decent people who might accidentally happen upon their taxpayer-supported station.

Compact Fluorescent Bulbs: Not a Very Bright Idea

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:46 AM

Moonbattery sure isn't cheap. Those flickering, dim compact fluorescent light bulbs that moonbats want to force us to use because they will allegedly save a few pennies on the electric bill cost about $4.28 a bulb — so long as you don't break one. If you do, the cost will be in the neighborhood of $2,004.28.

Knowing that the bulbs contain highly toxic mercury, Brandy Bridges of Ellsworth, Maine got on the phone for advice after breaking one. She ended up dealing with the bureauweenies at the Maine Department of Environmental Protection, who sent a specialist to her house to test for contamination. Her daughter's bedroom had to be sealed off while she scraped up the $2,000 to pay for cleanup. Her insurance wouldn't pay because mercury is a pollutant.

There are about 5 billion light sockets in North American households. Each will be a potential toxic waste site if liberals are successful at imposing compact fluorescents.

By the way, compact fluorescent bulbs are manufactured in China and India, where there are virtually no environmental regulations. Waste presumably goes into the nearest river.

Soon we'll need to dispose of billions of these subpar bulbs. According to Maine safety standards, it takes 16,667 cubic meters of soil to contain the mercury in a single bulb. The entire country is going to turn into a Superfund site at the behest of environmentalists, whose Dem allies are pushing for a ban on incandescent bulbs in the name of the global warming hoax.

Jerry Brown Leading Charge to Loot Auto Industry

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:41 PM

If militant moonbats have their way, the orgy of government greed that was excused by the war on tobacco will be dwarfed by the massive looting to take place behind the global warming smokescreen. Hard times for American automakers will get harder still when their resources are expropriated by unscrupulous bureauweenies like Jerry Brown, formerly known as California's Governor Moonbeam.

Now Attorney General of the Land of Fruits and Nuts, Brown is leading a looting expedition based on the notion that cars cause global warming, so the makers of cars should be sued for subjecting California residents to apocalyptic doom. In response, manufacturers have sensibly characterized the suit as a nuisance action and asked that it be dismissed.

Given the prevalence of liberals in our judicial system, the willingness of liberals to behave as if the global warming hoax were a real crisis when it suits their purposes, and the vindictiveness liberals often display toward the business sector, it's only a matter of time until Brown's suit or a similar one meets with success. Other states will of course pile on, and the automotive industry in America will be looted out of existence. Hundreds of thousands will be thrown out of work, but that's okay, because state bureaucracies will have stolen enough money to put them all on welfare — for a while.

Episcopal Bishop V. Gene Robinson Wants to "Unite" With Homosexual Lover

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:21 PM

It's a good thing for the Reverend V. Gene Robinson that the Episcopal Church has switched religions from Christianity to Moonbattery. This way he gets to be a bishop, despite openly indulging in sexual perversions that are explicitly forbidden in the Bible.

Robinson and his homosexual lover plan to be among the first to "officially unite" under a new civil unions law in New Hampshire.

The merry reverend married a woman and had two daughters with her. But then he decided that his homosexual urges should take priority over his family, so he dumped it. However, Rev. Robinson did attend his daughters' after-school activities — with his gay lover in tow.

Robinson is an advocate of homosexual "marriage." He has participated in New York City's gay pride parade. Here's what this parade looks like:

Predicting that gays will have attained the privileged status they euphemistically refer to as "full equality" within 20 years, Robinson chirps triumphantly:

Fifteen to 20 years ago, most Americans would have told you and been reasonably honest that they did not know a gay or lesbian. Now, there's not a family left, or a co-worker, that doesn't know someone.

Did I mention that this militant pervert is a Bishop in the Episcopal Church?

Death Toll Caused by Illegal Aliens Keeps Rising

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:31 PM

Yet another law-abiding American has paid with his life for the unconscionable unwillingness of authorities to protect us from the Mexican invasion.

Dacus Lamont Sims died at age 32, after trying to cross a Charlotte street with Luciano Melendres on the loose. Melendres is an illegal alien from Mexico who was arrested last year for drunk driving; instead of being sent home or put in jail, he received 12 months probation. Now, having run over Sims, he's charged with DWI, hit-and-run, driving with a revoked license, driving without insurance, and a registration violation. Apparently murder is not among the charges, so it's likely he'll be behind the wheel again soon.

Melendres joins a long list of illegal aliens who have taken lives while driving drunk on our roads, which includes Alfredo Ramos, Carlos Prieto, Eduardo Raul Morales-Soriano, Guillermo Paniagua, Gustavo Reyes Garcia, Hector Velazquez-Nava, Isidro Pena Soto, Joel Perea, Jorge Humberto Hernandez-Soto, Jose Trejo Encino, Luis Oscar Garcia, Marcos Ramos Medina, Miguel Garduno Gonzalez, Pastor Rios Sanchez, Ramiro Gallegos, and Vitalina Bautista Vargas, who managed to kill a 91-year-old woman asleep in her bed by driving right through her house.

Most of them had been arrested repeatedly before they killed. Some had even been deported repeatedly — as if there were any point, with the border wide open. Hernandez-Soto, who killed a college student by driving the wrong way on an interstate at over 100 mph, had been deported 17 times.

These drunken maniacs' victims have included police officers, Marines, women, and small children, whose blood stains the hands of the irresponsible moonbats from Bush on down who refuse to defend our sovereign territory from invasion.

Dan Simpson's Disarmament Plan

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:19 AM

One nice thing about liberals who work for newspapers instead of the government is they can be more upfront about their contempt for our constitutional rights. For example, Dan Simpson, a member of the editorial boards of the Blade and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, explicitly lays out what should be done about those who assert our Second Amendment right to own firearms.

First, Simpson establishes his credentials as an open-minded guy, and not "a crazed liberal zealot":

I don't have any problem with hunting, although blowing away animals with high-powered weapons seems a pointless, no-contest affair to me.

Now, on to pacifying the American population:

First of all, federal or state laws would need to make it a crime punishable by a $1,000 fine and one year in prison per weapon to possess a firearm.

Thanks to Simpson's open-mindedness, hunting would still be allowed. But to prevent the nation of child slaves envisioned by liberals from using guns for self-defense against criminals or government tyranny, hunting weapons would be stored in armories. Hunters would only be allowed to use them upon submission of the proper forms, provided they passed "federal, state, and local checks" and held valid licenses — and even then only at the discretion of bureaucrats.

Simpson's brand of totalitarianism extends beyond hunting rifles. "Weapons of war" would be outright banned. As for collector's pieces:

All antique or interesting non-hunting weapons would be required to be delivered to a local or regional museum, also to be under strict 24-hour-a-day guard.

Few self-respecting American would voluntarily submit to being disarmed by the squishy invertebrate vermin who run our newspapers. That's why police state tactics would have to be used:

Special squads of police would be formed and trained to carry out the work. Then, on a random basis to permit no advance warning, city blocks and stretches of suburban and rural areas would be cordoned off and searches carried out in every business, dwelling, and empty building. All firearms would be seized. The owners of weapons found in the searches would be prosecuted: $1,000 and one year in prison for each firearm.

A martial law approach would be used to keep areas free of guns:

[F]airly quickly there would begin to be gun-swept, gun-free areas where there should be no firearms. If there were, those carrying them would be subject to quick confiscation and prosecution. On the streets it would be a question of stop-and-search of anyone, even grandma with her walker, with the same penalties for "carrying."

Presumably our liberal masters would then move on to confiscating all sharp objects and blunt instruments. After that, they might have our teeth pulled and our fingernails removed so we can't bite or scratch when they come to take our property away.

It would be a mistake to assume that because we defeated Hitler, Imperial Japan, and the Soviet Union, we can easily defeat sniveling liberal mollusks like Dan Simpson. The enemy within is by far the hardest to fight.

First Registration, Then Confiscation

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:14 AM

Chicago's intrusive firearms registration requirements are being applied toward their intended use: disarming citizens.

Illinois State Police troopers have been going door to door, confiscating legally registered guns because owners forgot to jump through deliberately onerous re-regulation hoops. A taskforce called the Chicago Anti Gun Enforcement (CAGE) unit has been working with other police agencies to disarm the Chicago populace. Its target is not criminal gunrunners, but law-abiding citizens who can be disarmed using loopholes and technicalities. Those who have allowed their Nazi-esque Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) cards to expire will be tracked down by bureaucrats and have their guns confiscated by the State.

Bad enough that Illinois has managed to inflict Hillary Clinton, Dick Durbin, and Barack Hussein Obama on the rest of the country. Let's hope it doesn't do the same with its apparent contempt for the Second Amendment.

Patrick Leahy Leads Charge to Free Gitmo Terrorists

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:25 AM

Democrat Senators are conducting their War on Behalf of Terror on two fronts, not only demanding that we surrender to terrorists in the conflict's main theater Iraq, but also providing legal assistance to those in American custody.

Patrick Leahy (D-VT), Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, whines that the "rights" of foreign terrorists captured overseas are being infringed despite the obsequious treatment they receive at Club Gitmo. He wants foreign terrorists to be able to challenge our government in our courts, as if they were common criminals and American citizens. The result would be extravagantly expensive bureaucratic paralysis, quickly leading to terrorists sworn to our destruction being set free to kill again.

Leahy complains that the terrorists could be held forever. In saner times, this problem would have been solved with a machine gun. But Dems prefer that al-Qaeda operatives be released so that they can continue their activities on American soil, after the battlefield has been moved by Harry Reid et al. from Iraq back to Manhattan.

EU Biofuel Targets Will Harm the Environment

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:43 AM

Green fuel foolishness is a threat to more than affordable beer. Forests, peatlands, and even orangutans could also be in trouble.

Totally carried away by global warming hysteria, European Union bureauweenies have decreed that biofuel should account for 10% of Europe's transport fuel by 2020. Producing enough palm oil to meet this target will result in the destruction of tropical rainforests and peatlands in Southeast Asia, which according to currently fashionable theories will actually increase global warming, in addition to depriving exotic animals like orangutans of their habitat.

But the important thing is that setting biofuel targets helps bureaucrats feel engaged in dealing with the imaginary menace of global warming, so that they don't have to think about very real problems such as conquest-level immigration, Islamic terrorism, and the incipient collapse of the welfare state, which they do not have the character even to attempt to address.

Washington State Defends Freedom of Speech From Campaign Finance Moonbattery

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:26 PM

Campaign finance moonbattery suffered a setback today, when the Washington State Supreme Court unanimously overturned a ruling by Superior Court Judge Chris Wickham that would have silenced Seattle talk-show hosts John Carlson and Kirby Wilbur by claiming that their endorsement of Initiative 912, which calls for the repeal of a gas tax, constituted an in-kind campaign contribution.

William Maurer of the Institute for Justice called the development "a direct and clear repudiation of the use of Washington’s campaign finance laws to intimidate and harass media voices with which the government disagrees."

Efforts to use campaign finance laws to gag the DJs were led by San Juan County Prosecutor Randall Gaylord.

Hopefully this is a step toward the repeal of the flagrantly unconstitutional abomination known as McCain-Feingold, which is already coming back under review by the Supremes.

Senate Passes Surrender Bill

Posted by Dave Blount at 2:57 PM

In the aftermath of 9/11, who would have guessed that in only a few short years, Democrats would dare this?

The Democrat-controlled Senate passed a bill today calling for the United States to unilaterally surrender to the Islamic terrorists from whom we have been defending the fledgling democracy in Iraq. Our troops are called on to begin retreating as early as July 1.

If this bill were to become law, the Bush strategy of combating Islamic terror by taking the battle to the enemy and spreading democracy in the Middle East will have been officially abandoned in favor of the Democrat strategy of distracting ourselves with imaginary problems like global warming until the terrorists hit us again on our homeland.

It's too bad for al-Qaeda that Islam proscribes alcohol. This would be a day for them to break out champagne.

But, as Barack Hussein Obama observes, we are still "one signature away" from official surrender. Bush will of course veto the bill, as everyone who voted in its favor knows.

The idea is for Senate Dems to absolve themselves of any responsibility for the crucial Iraq theater of the War on Terror, despite most of them having voted in favor of removing Saddam Hussein from power. Another benefit from the Democrat point of view is that the bill's inevitable failure will delay funding our troops in the field, helping to demoralize them and bring about their defeat. With their control of the establishment media and extremely low opinion of the American public, Dems believe they can spin this defeat and its catastrophic consequences to their own benefit in the 2008 elections.

The word "contemptible" barely does justice to today's Democrat Party.

The High Cost of Easily Accessible Beans

Posted by Dave Blount at 2:21 PM

It is common knowledge that beans cause the dreadful phenomenon known as flatulence, a major contributor to the global warming that will soon embroil us all in a sweaty apocalypse. Nonetheless, beans are readily available to anyone who wants to purchase them, despite the absence of explicit Constitutional protection as we have for firearms. So far as I know, beans are not even regulated.

Now we see the consequences:

The picture is of movie star Hugh Grant, assaulting a photographer with a tub of baked beans. Grant was subsequently arrested.

It's time for us to ask ourselves: would this incident have occurred if beans were subject to prudent federal regulation?



Bill to Establish Legal Caste System Moves Forward

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:38 AM

Reminding us just what we are doing to our country by allowing Dems to run Congress, the House Judiciary Committee has passed a federal "hate crimes" bill along strict party lines. Attempts by Republicans to so much as amend the abomination were defeated.

Contemptuously ignoring both the Tenth Amendment and the concept of equality before the law, the atrocious Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2007 (HR 1592) would officially establish a legal class system, placing homosexuals, Muslims, and non-Caucasians in a category that would make it a federal offense to attack them.

Observes the Family Research Council:

Despite what its advocates say, this is not about crime — it's about special treatment. HR 1592 would further carve out "tiers" of victims, putting more importance on crimes committed against a Rosie O'Donnell than against her next-door neighbor.

Rosie, being a lesbian, would have higher legal status than mere heterosexuals — just as dhimmis have lower legal status than Muslims under Islamic regimes.

At the bottom of the legal caste system with which liberals are replacing equality before the law will be Christians. Although progressives celebrate homosexual perversion and even promote it to small children in our schools, the Bible plainly and repeatedly states that it is wrong (Leviticus 18:22, Leviticus 20:13, Romans 1:27, etc.). Consequently, referring to the Bible in this context will probably be regarded as incitement against a protected class, as Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX) has warned.

If Democrats keep getting elected, it is only a matter of time until the Bible is designated as "hate speech" and banned for failing to support the homosexual agenda.

Assistant Terrorist Lynne Stewart Is Disbarred

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:34 AM

A little good news for a change: left-wing activist Lynne Stewart will no longer be practicing law.

As readers might recall, Stewart received a 28-month wrist slap for deliberately helping Islamic terror master Omar Abdel-Rahman conduct his operations from behind bars. Abdel-Rahman was behind the first attempt to bring down the World Trade Center. He also attempted to blow up the Lincoln and Holland tunnels.

No doubt Stewart's role in assisting this monster to conduct his terror operations by illegally relaying his orders helped win her the slobbering affection of the treasonous vermin running the New York Times and Washington Post.

The travesty of justice whereby Stewart was scarcely punished at all for crimes that clearly warranted execution took place only blocks from Ground Zero. She remains free pending federal appeal of her joke of a sentence. But at least now she's been disbarred.

Armed Moonbat Matthew Hunter Kramer Assaults Nevada Republican Headquarters

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:26 AM

A moonbat by the name of Matthew Hunter Kramer pulled up at the Nevada Republican Party offices in Las Vegas in a Mercedes with California plates. He noisily berated the workers within, calling them idiots, and proclaimed that the war in Iraq has nothing to do with anything but oil. After drawing Nevada Republican Party Executive Director Zachary Moyle outside, Kramer produced a rifle from the trunk of his car and with the barrel two inches from Moyle's nose growled:

Don't You know that America hates you? If your President vetoes this bill, I will be back. Do you understand me?

The reference was to a Democrat bill calling for American surrender in Iraq.

Kramer then went back into the office and helped himself to pictures of Bush and Cheney that were hanging on the wall, before returning to his Merc and driving away.

He was soon tracked down and arrested on a variety of charges. Authorities found a large cache of weapons in his car, including swords, knives, and a shotgun.

Everyone involved seems to agree that Kramer is insane. Nonetheless, he was released and is apparently wandering around loose at this very moment, very possibly planning to become the next Cho Seung-Hui.

Surprise! Carbon Offsets Are a Scam

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:21 PM

It's okay that conspicuously rich moonbats like Al Gore create massive carbon footprints while demanding that the rest of us relocate to the Stone Age, because they wash away their sins against Gaia by buying eco-indulgences — aka carbon offsets. But to the surprise of no one with a triple-digit IQ, it is becoming increasingly obvious that carbon offsets are a scam. Some findings of a Financial Times investigation:

• Widespread instances of people and organisations buying worthless credits that do not yield any reductions in carbon emissions.
• Industrial companies profiting from doing very little — or from gaining carbon credits on the basis of efficiency gains from which they have already benefited substantially.
• Brokers providing services of questionable or no value.
• A shortage of verification, making it difficult for buyers to assess the true value of carbon credits.
• Companies and individuals being charged over the odds for the private purchase of European Union carbon permits that have plummeted in value because they do not result in emissions cuts.

Francis Sullivan is the environment adviser at HSBC, Britain's biggest bank, which presumably for publicity reasons went "carbon-neutral" in 2005. He's been studying the carbon offsets market for months, and concludes:

The police, the fraud squad and trading standards need to be looking into this.

EEOC Moonbats Sink Their Fangs Into Salvation Army

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:29 PM

The Salvation Army is an evangelical Christian organization that for 140 years has devoted itself to helping the helpless. Our government's Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) — aka the Department of Political Correctness — wants to break its kneecaps.

EEOC moonbats are suing the Salvation Army because it fired two people (who may or may not have been illegal aliens) who refused to abide by a condition of employment, namely that they make some attempt to learn English, since according to most maps, this is still America.

Turning the country into a dysfunctional Tower of Babel rates almost as high as attacking all remnants of the Christian religion among the bureaucratic termites eating away at the foundations of our society. The EEOC was able to pursue both objectives by going to court with the claim that being asked to learn English caused the poor victims "emotional pain, humiliation and embarrassment."

Litigation isn't cheap. But that's no problem for EEOC bureauweenies, because they don't pay for it — you do. As for the Salvation Army, it will be forced to spend money on court costs that otherwise would have gone toward helping the poor.

Enviromorons Vandalize the Wrong Field

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:44 AM

In a sociopathic attempt to invalidate what they thought was a test of genetically modified potatoes, a mob of 200 enviromoonbats calling themselves mutatoes.org dug up a field in East Yorkshire, England, and planted it with regular potatoes.

Actually, nothing had been growing in the field but cattle feed crops.

Laughs Chris Buckton, whose family farms nearby:

We found it quite funny, you know, it seems really stupid that these guys are supposed to be into the environment, but don't know what a potato crop looks like.

But a lack of expertise rarely stops environmentalists from interfering in other people's business.

Moonbats oppose genetically engineered crops, possibly because the crops alleviate hunger in the Third World, thus depriving children in quaint multicultural villages of their picturesque potbellies.

Global Warming Hoax Driving Up Beer Prices in Germany

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:20 AM

If this doesn't wake Germans up to the folly of global warming hysteria, nothing will: enviromoonbattery is driving up beer prices.

German brewers have had no choice but to raise their prices, because farmland once used to raise barley has been diverted to growing crops for politically correct if economically inefficient biofuels.

Beer prices matter in Germany even more than elsewhere. Last year 111.6 liters of beer was guzzled per German.

Manfred Weizbauer, head of the German millers' federation, notes that "Biofuels are monopolizing the land." He pleads with the German government to "be reasonable" — not likely, where environmental hysteria is concerned.

Biofuel foolishness is also driving up the price of bread in Germany by 10%. In our own hemisphere, the diversion of corn into ethanol instead of people's stomachs where it belongs has resulted in food riots in Mexico.

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:23 AM

In another disturbing glimpse at where environmentalism is headed, Italy has adopted a draft bill anticipating a forthcoming European Union directive on environmental crimes. Those found guilty of sins against Gaia will be subject to 1–5 years in jail and fines of 20,000–60,000 euros — and still more if the crime actually endangers someone.

Punishments get even worse for committing "environmental catastrophes," which presumably go well beyond forgetting to throw your soda can in the recycling bin.

You Really Can Indict a Ham Sandwich

Posted by Dave Blount at 4:28 PM

You might have heard it said that district attorneys have so much influence over grand juries, they could get them to "indict a ham sandwich." As OpinionJournal suggests, this is no longer hyperbole, in light of the high school students who may be charged with a hate crime for confronting Muslims with a piece of ham.

A student at Lewiston Middle School in Maine placed a ham steak in a bag on a lunch table at which Somali students were eating. Somalis are Muslims, and ham is on the long list of things Islam forbids. Other students stand accused of laughing.

Whimpered one of the traumatized victims:

[F]or the rest of my life when I remember middle school, this will pop up right away.

Stephen Wessler of the Center for Prevention of Hate Violence gasped that this incident was "an awful thing" and "extraordinary hurtful and degrading."

Superintendent Leon Levesque promised that a letter would be sent home to students' parents explaining the incident and describing the school's official response.

Hugo Chavez and Joe Kennedy Offer a Taste of Socialism

Posted by Dave Blount at 3:34 PM

Joe Kennedy's willingness to participate in the propaganda stunt whereby Hugo Chavez tried to make the USA look bad by supplying free heating oil to the poor may have been despicable and borderline treasonous, but at least it gave some Americans an educational lesson in socialism.

Due to bureaucratic incompetence on the part of Kennedy's Citizens Energy Corp., actually getting the free oil delivered proved more difficult that it would have been to scrape up the money to buy the stuff like everyone else. Beneficiaries were led to believe that their dealers would automatically bring them the oil. However, not all dealers were actually taking part, and calls to a toll-free help line went unanswered.

Complains 63-year-old Harford County resident Bonnie Chandler, who was told she would get 100 free gallons:

If I waited on that Joe Kennedy for my heating oil, I'd still be here sitting in the cold. When I called, none of the fuel distributors do it around here. […] I tried calling the 1-800-JOE-4-OIL number that the letter tells you to call if your dealer hasn't been notified, but I couldn't get an answer. Thank goodness my son helps me. But what if I was dependent on this and needed this free fuel? I feel like it's a ploy.

But so long as Joe Kennedy got in a few photo ops, and Chavez was able to broadcast his message that America stinks and only socialist dictators care about the poor, the program met its objectives, regardless of how many homes were actually heated.

Osama Obama Wants to Buy Off Terrorists

Until now I regarded Barack Hussein Obama as an empty black skin who was picked to be a figurehead by liberal media elites because his name reminds them of Osama bin Laden. But it turns out that he actually has a plan for confronting the worldwide Islamic terror movement that did not begin or end with September 11.

The plan does not involve fighting terrorists. Osama Obama wants US troops to retreat from Iraq within a year, handing that strategically vital country over to our worst enemies, with a virtual guarantee that its oil revenues will be used to finance terror strikes against our homeland.

Instead, Obama's plan calls for paying the regimes that harbor terrorists to be nice. He has promised to double foreign aid to $50 billion by 2012 if Americans should be so viciously self-destructive as to elect him. Apparently he thinks that if you pour enough money into corrupt Arab regimes that want us wiped off the map, helping to finance their weapons programs and the dissemination of militant Islamic propaganda, they will be so grateful that they will wait until after they've destroyed Israel before they come after us.

There is some precedent to Obama's idea. In the 18th Century, we paid off Islamic rulers to keep Muslim pirates from looting our ships and enslaving our citizens. But Thomas Jefferson got tired of paying tribute to a bunch of thugs and sent in the Marines.

Since the war in Iraq began, prominent Democrats have said whatever they could think of to break our country's morale. But no treasonous statement from Harry Reid or Jack Murtha could be as heartbreaking in its effect as being forced to imagine Barack Obama in the office once held by Thomas Jefferson.

Even Some Libs Disgusted by Rosie O's Crassness

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:07 AM

The Matrix Awards honor the most accomplished women in media in New York. Regrettably, organizers chose the obnoxious moonbat Rosie O'Donnell to emcee the awards.

In the audience, 17 "sweet-faced high school girls" who had won scholarships to pursue careers in the media could only gasp in horror as Rosie indulged in a vulgar assault on her nemesis Donald Trump, during which the overweight lesbian sneered that it's too bad Trump considers her "disgusting," because "it was always my dream to give an old, bald billionaire a boner" before concluding the rant by grabbing her crotch and shouting "Eat me!"

Barbara Walter, who attempts without success to lend credibility to Rosie's soapbox "The View," covered her face in her hands as her colleague let loose with the F-bomb.

Said active Democrat Robert Zimmerman:

I was offended by how vulgar and common O'Donnell was. It was especially inappropriate with young people present.

But Brandon Holley, editor-in-chief of Jane magazine, is much more hip:

I wasn't personally offended, but I thought it was fun to watch other people be offended.

In other "Queen of Nice" news, Rosie publicly responded to Cheryl Crow's edict that we use only one sheet of toilet paper in honor of the global warming hoax by yelling, "One little thing?! Has she seen my ass?!?!" (Video here.)

Now where would Trump get the idea that Rosie is disgusting?

Global Warming Swindle to Cost NYC $32 Billion Under Bloomberg Plan

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:15 AM

New York's RINO Mayor Mike Bloomberg has unveiled a new master plan to exploit the global warming hoax. The greedy scheme entails charging drivers as much as $21 to enter Manhattan and tacking $30 a year onto electric bills.

Bloomberg's 127 proposals not only appropriate money, but spend it too. Public plazas are to be created in every community, and city buildings will be retrofitted at who knows what expense so as to save a few pennies on heating bills. Rumors that a ten-story sculpture of Bloomberg's head made entirely of biodegradable tofu will be erected in Central Park have not been confirmed.

The Mayor's aides put the total cost of the initiatives at $32 billion. That's billion, with a B.

Bill Moyers to Expose the Ideologically Impure

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:08 PM

The execrable Bill Moyers is back, once again using our tax dollars to propagandize against our country from atop his soapbox PBS. His next project is a Stalinesque show trial, during which he will expose media people who revealed their counterrevolutionary tendencies by siding with their own country during the removal of the genocidal terrorist dictator Saddam Hussein from power.

Moyers nails his victims with damning footage. Even Dan Rather is caught on television expressing support for the President. Publications as far left as WaPo, USA Today, and even the New York Times are found guilty of publishing stories that do not conform to the current MSM consensus that Saddam was never a threat and the entire war was fought on an irrational whim.

At least we can be thankful we live in a country where characters like Moyers aren't actually in control. If this were the Soviet Union, instead of being skewered in front of their fellow libs on PBS, journalists found to have expressed thoughts at variance with correct ideology would be taking one-way train rides to Siberia.

Imposing Silence

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:37 PM

Each year the "National Day of Silence" is used by the militant homosexual lobby to promote its agenda and lifestyle in our public schools. Duct tape is passed out so that students can wear it over their mouths to show solidarity with homosexuals, who allegedly face a dreadful silence imposed on them by normal people.

At Oakridge High in Muskegon, Michigan, David Gardner demonstrated who really is imposing silence by showing up for this year's event with the words "I'm straight" written on a piece of duct tape attached to his shirt. A teacher demanded that he remove the tape. When he refused, he was ejected from class.

Apparently silence isn't so awful, if the alternative is to hear an opposing point of view.

Reign of PC Terror Claims JV and Elvis

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:52 PM

The reign of PC terror continues. Jeff Vandergrift and Dan Lay, aka JV and Elvis of "The Dog House With JV and Elvis" on WFNY in New York, have been suspended by CBS Radio without pay until further notice for airing a harmless skit that a race grievance specialist decided to find offensive.

The skit involved calling up Chinese restaurants and teasing the employees. Since Chinese are not white heterosexual Christian males, having any fun at their expense is strictly verboten under the despotic regime of obsequious multicultural humorlessness to which we have subjected ourselves. The phrase "flied lice" was used. The horror.

Vicki Shu Smolin, president of the NYC chapter of the Organization of Chinese Americans, screamed:

If they don't fire the D.J.'s, it will be a double standard.

The reference of course is to the Imus firing, which opened the floodgates of race grievance tyranny. DJ after DJ will be dragged to the guillotine until radio programming is as politically correct, predictable, and vapid as network news — at which point authoritarian multiculturalists will look for some other aspect of our culture to erase.

Novel Allegations From Harry Reid

Posted by Dave Blount at 5:23 PM

Harry Reid, who recently announced that the USA had been defeated by al-Qaeda and other Islamic terror groups, is making some novel allegations in his campaign to destroy American morale, thus securing the catastrophic defeat in Iraq that appears to be the centerpiece of Democrat election strategy.

In the midst of a long list of reasons America should just give up and die, Reid accuses us of causing Iraqi children to stutter and wet their beds, thus helping to "paralyze an entire generation that we had been counting on to harvest the seeds of democracy."

No wonder libs' allies in the Muslim world call us the Great Satan. Who else would be so dastardly?

Reid wants all our combat forces to retreat from Iraq by next April, thereby waving a white flag to both al-Qaeda and Iran, and leaving Iraqis who participated in the fledgling democracy at the mercy of terrorists, including Baathists who have not hesitated to engage in genocide. Here's why he likes this plan:

It prevents the jihadists from being able to claim victory over America, and begins to restore America's prestige, power and influence in the region and the world.

If that makes sense to you, please seek psychiatric help immediately.

Shrillary Advocates Open Homosexuality in the Military

Maybe we should retreat from Iraq after all — before Hillary Clinton becomes the Commander in Chief. Shrillary may not know much about the military, but she does know that she wants it staffed in part by openly homosexual servicemen.

Shrillary is also letting it be known that she believes in the global warming hoax, and plans to respond to it by crippling the economy with emissions caps. Oh, and she wants to revive HillaryCare.

If the American people elect a Dem from the current crop, we will deserve the disastrous consequences — or at least, some of us will.

Cheryl Crow's Carbon Footprint Almost As Large As Her Liquor Bill

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:05 AM

Talk about a carbon footprint. Check out the transportation requirements of singer Cheryl Crow, who insists we curtail our toilet paper usage so as to save the planet from global warming:

  • Three tractor trailers.
  • Four buses.
  • Six cars.

Yet I'm sure Ms. Crow makes up for all the emissions by neglecting to clean herself properly after using the bathroom.

Even more impressive are her alcohol requirements for each show, which include 12 bottles of Grolsch, six bottles of local beer, a bottle of cabernet, a bottle of merlot, and depending on the day of the week, a bottle of either Makers Mark bourbon, Bombay gin, Courvoisier brandy, "Good quality Champagne," silver tequila, or Absolut vodka.

I wonder which of these inspired her concept of the removable "dining sleeve."

Sheryl Crow Campaigns Against Toilet Paper

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:04 AM

The list of things liberal elite moonbats want us to go without in the name of the global warming hoax keeps growing. Bubble-brained pop star Cheryl Crow is now crusading against toilet paper.

Proving that there is no aspect of our personal lives libs don't feel entitled to control, Crow says we should use

one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where two to three could be required.

If you see liberals feverishly scratching the seats of their pants, it could be an indication they're taking this directive seriously.

Crow just wrapped up a tour around the country on a biodiesel-powered bus with fellow moonbat Laurie David, with whom she has been preaching global warming gospel. Apparently intrinsic to this gospel is Crow's belief that forsaking toilet paper will improve the weather.

Being of the liberal persuasion, she naturally wants her bizarre dictates imposed by force:

I propose a limitation be put on how many squares of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting.

Crow also disapproves of napkins. She wants them to be replaced with clothes that feature a detachable "dining sleeve." I'm not making this up.

Even Cheryl Crow can be humble:

Although my ideas are in the earliest stages of development, they are, in my mind, worth investigating.

As with many a moonbat, it is actually her mind itself that is in the earliest stages of development.

Gavin Newsom Obstructs National Defense, Law Enforcement

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:17 PM

As America awaits the inevitable follow-up to 9/11, and the illegal immigration crisis spirals out of control, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom is rising to the occasion — by promising that no San Francisco employee will participate in immigration enforcement.

Secure in the knowledge that sedition and treason are not considered crimes when indulged in by Democrats, Newsom crowed:

I will not allow any of my department heads or anyone associated with this city to cooperate in any way shape or form with these raids. We are a sanctuary city, make no mistake about it.

"These raids" is a reference to the federal government's lackluster attempts to defend the country from foreign invasion. At best, the invasion will continue to result in an explosively growing alien underclass that already represents a crippling burden on public services and will inevitably lead to severe social strife. At worst, the invaders pouring into our country will include the next Mohammed Atta et al., possibly along with their nuclear weapons.

But that's not Gavin Newsom's problem. All he has to worry about is getting reelected by the same irresponsible moonbats who gave us Nancy Pelosi. He's on the right track.

European Parliament Versus Pro-Family Conference

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:19 PM

The politically correct bureauweenies who make up the European Parliament don't like it one bit that Assistant Secretary of State Ellen Sauerbrey plans to speak at the World Congress of Families in Warsaw next month.

Nineteen parliamentarians signed a letter to Sauerbrey, demanding she stay home on the grounds that the Congress is being organized by the Howard Center for Family, Religion, and Society, which is deemed to promote "extremist and intolerant views" — in other words, it advocates the preservation of civilization.

The high-ranking moonbats find it unconscionable that Sauerbrey would appear at the same event as Steven Mosher, whose Population Research Institute has acknowledged the ongoing "demographic destruction" of Europe by encroaching Muslim hordes. They quote PRI:

These immigrants, particularly Muslim ones in Europe, are too many and too culturally different from their new countries' populations to assimilate quickly, and they are contributing to the cultural suicide of these nations as they commit demographic suicide.

No reasonable person disputes this is true, but how gauche to say it out loud!

Also attending the Congress will be Cardinal Alfonso Lopez Trujillo of the Pontifical Council for the Family, who has suggested that abstinence is more effective at controlling the spread of AIDS than condoms — another undeniably true political faux pas.

Still more outrageous is the fact that the Congress will be held in Poland, whose President Lech Kaczynski once refused to meet with the organizers of a gay privileges parade, and even went so far as to observe that they were "perverts."

Homosexual "marriage" is also at issue. The Euroweenies are appalled that

Many speakers have themselves or represent organizations that have expressed outright hostility to recognizing any family unit that does not include a married couple and their offspring.

Of course they believe in freedom of speech — but…

We have no problem with people expressing beliefs and convictions that we do not share. In a free society, that is right and just. However, we do object when foreign government officials lend support to such views, especially when platforms are used to denigrate and attack those with whom they disagree.

You know, like the way they themselves denigrate and attack the people taking part in the World Congress of Families by attempting to characterize them as hate-filled extremists.

Sauerbrey is unlikely to help the EU shut out the Congress, since she knows what it's like to get the cold shoulder for attempting to uphold morality in an immoral world. She was appointed to her State Department position after coming within 6,000 votes of becoming Governor of Maryland. However, her recess appointment will expire at the end of the year. Congressional Dems object that she's not a fan of abortion.

Russian Journalists Ordered to Portray USA As the Enemy

Russian journalists have a ways to go to catch up to their Western colleagues. They still need to be told to portray the USA as the enemy, as employees of the Russian News Service recently were by their new managers, who are pals of strongman Vladimir Putin.

Journalists were also told that at least 50% of news about Russia must be positive. Lucky thing American journalists aren't asked to think of positive things to say about their country. At least it would make for shorter newscasts.

Parking Is Wrong

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:49 AM

By now we're all aware that driving our cars is a sin against Gaia. But now moonbats want us to feel guilty even about parking them. Steven Landsburg complains on Slate:

It's crazy to feel guilty about dirtying the atmosphere without feeling even guiltier about clogging city streets. […]
Even if you never drive into the city, you're (at least indirectly) still part of the problem. Suburban shopping malls almost everywhere are required to have vastly oversized parking lots that are never close to full. You might not realize this because you tend to search for spots in the close-in areas that are full. But the outlying areas sit idle, precluding the use of that land for anything of social value.

Landsburg offers a typical liberal solution to the evil known as parking: make it less available and force people to pay more for it. That way we peasants would be forced to ride buses, while liberal elite environmentalists fly overhead in their jets.

Big Brother's Eye in the Sky

Posted by Dave Blount at 1:34 PM

Hugo Chavez has finally come up with a solution to the rampant crime that helps make Venezuela nearly uninhabitable under his regime. The rotting capital Caracas will be patrolled with zeppelins, which will spy upon the citizens below.

Three blimps costing $465,000 apiece will beam images back to the authorities. Unfortunately they will not be much use at night, which is when street crime tends to occur. But at least they will remind everyone that Uncle Hugo is watching. A Venezuelan lawyer who was afraid to give his name commented:

It reminds me of 1984, of George Orwell. This is Big Brother. It is not going to solve crime.

A more constructive approach to solving Venezuela's crime crisis would be lightening up on gun control. Gun ownership is severely restricted. As a result of law-abiding citizens having been disarmed, Venezuela has the world's highest rate of death by firearms.

URI College Republicans Derecognized

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:26 PM

University of Rhode Island's College Republicans decided to shine a little light on the hypocrisy of academia's race-obsessed bean-counters by satirically offering a $100 grant to a white, heterosexual, American male student. Applicants were asked to respond to the following:

In 100 words or less, what does being a white heterosexual American male mean to you? As a white heterosexual American male, what adversities have you had to deal with and overcome?

The student senate was not amused. First it demanded that the College Republicans apologize for expressing their point of view. When the apology was not forthcoming, the group was officially derecognized.



EU Campaign Against Freedom of Speech Threatens Bloggers

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:22 AM

As noted earlier, the European Union has declared war on the concept of free speech with its outrageous Racism and Xenophobia Directive, which displays "Europe's common moral values" by making it a criminal offense punishable by up to three years in prison to question official versions of historical events, or to say or write anything that dhimmified moonbats choose to regard as xenophobic. This is expected to have a disastrous effect on the dissemination of information occurring outside of officially sanctified establishment channels — especially blogs.

Observes Chris Mounsey, who runs The Devil's Kitchen:

There is potential for this to have worldwide application. Free speech is at the centre of blogging. Part of the reason bloggers can tell the truth is because it is difficult to pin them down. This law tries to do it.

Most appalling is the sheer arrogance of EU bureauweenies who want to impose their leprous ideology even beyond Europe's borders. European bloggers would be subject to punishment even if their blogs are hosted in a free country like the USA.

Imposing Gay "Marriage" on Christians

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:58 AM

In Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, far from the militant moonbats so prevalent in Ontario, civil marriage commissioner Orville Nichols refused to perform a homosexual "marriage" on the grounds that it violated his Christian faith. Naturally there is going to be a price to be paid for putting principle above political correctness.

Although Nichols referred the gays to another commissioner who performed the service the day originally requested, Human Rights Commission lawyer Janice Gingell wants Nichols to be forced to pay the lovebirds $5,000, apparently just to show who's boss.

In addition, he will probably be hit with court costs. Deranged by moonbattery, the system stacks the deck in favor of complainants, who are not asked to pay any expenses even in the unlikely event that they lose, whereas the defendant is often forced to pay the costs for both sides.

The moonbats running Yale University have responded to the Virginia Tech massacre in a manner so asinine, only the intellectual elite could have thought of it. They are censoring the use of weapons in stage productions.

Students staging a production of "Red Noses" found out about the ban the same day their show was scheduled to open. At first Dean of Student Affairs Betty Trachtenberg wanted weapons banned completely, but she compromised by letting them use weapons that are obviously fake.

Brandon Berger, who must now use a silly-looking wooden sword, complains that his part has been changed from an "evil, errant knight to a petulant child."

Sherwood Ross: Virginia Tech Parents Have No Right to Grieve

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:39 AM

If anything could be more contemptible than a psychotic loser who murders 32 people on a maniacal rampage, it would be a comparably psychotic moonbat like Sherwood Ross, who proclaims that the slain students' parents have no right to grieve because they're American:

The American people, including the families of the murdered Virginia Tech innocents, have collective blood-guilt on their hands. […] How many of those parents in the audience hearing the President's words had elected to Congress men and women who voted for lax laws on gun ownership? How many of those parents in the audience had also voted for legislators who backed the president's illegal invasion of Iraq? Are we, as a nation, too obtuse to grasp the connection between our "gun culture" policy at home and our militarist policy abroad that murders and mutilates human beings at every turn? […]
Who is responsible for the killings in Iraq except the same now bereaved parents of the murdered students at Virginia Tech? […]
The same parents who weep for their children might consider that they and their neighbors are also spending a half trillion dollars a year so that the Pentagon, just over the horizon from Virginia Tech, can wage a war that is snuffing out the lives of children of other parents just like their own. […]
All across America, people who attend church and regard themselves as "good" people, such as the bereaved at Virginia Tech, are working in the plants that make atomic bombs and warplanes and napalm and cluster bombs and are creating new, demonical designs of germ warfare and space-based weapons so vile and horrible they defy description.
America as a nation has become an organized nightmare. Yesterday, the nation woke up to the pain of the kind of killing it has been inflicting widely around the world since its fleets of bombers roared out to destroy Dresden, since it leveled Hiroshima and Nagasaki, since it laid waste to Vietnam, since it overthrew Chile, and now since it has invaded two Middle Eastern nations in its thirst for oil.

Ross clearly has mental problems and lives in fabricated reality of grudges and delusions. But as with Cho Seung-Hui, that's no excuse.

Manny Lopez Reports on Venezuela

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:47 AM

Detroit News editorial columnist Manny Lopez knows Venezuela well, and recently returned to see what leftist goon Hugo Chavez has been doing to the country. An interview with him at A Second Hand Conjecture is highly educational. Below are a few of his observations.

On propaganda, crime, and confiscated revenue:

Chávez has spent millions plastering the country with propaganda. "Socialism, patriotism or death" banners hang throughout Caracas as well as a litany of "death to American imperialism" murals.
There also is an unquestionable concern about crime among locals and visitors (though there aren't nearly as many tourists as there once was). Chávez has created such an atmosphere of entitlement among the truly poor that some now think they have a mandate to take what they want and redistribute it to themselves and their families. And why not? Though there is a decent police presence, I'm told they apparently don't act on theft or assault charges that often.
Ironically, the socialists are so caught up in the so-called revolution and the attack on middle and upper class Venezuelans, that they don't stop and think about why Chávez hasn't significantly redistributed the tremendous amount of oil money he's raking in. Since he took office the number of truly poor is the same, but he's confiscated more oil money than the three previous governments combined.

On the media:

It is going to get increasingly difficult for the opposition to have a voice because Chávez is shutting down anyone (Radio Caracas Television, for example) who questions or opposes him. And he pulls the puppet strings of his media without fail. Watch some of his "interviews" with them and he rarely allows them to speak. No one challenges his answers or his asinine statements.
What's worse, he's got plenty of American media personalities and pseudo-celebrities hoodwinked. Witness the inane interview Barbara Walters did of him recently. She's a joke and her interview proved it. It was painfully embarrassing to watch and she never asked why the overall poverty is the same despite his "socialism" or why he wants to shut the free press, etc.

On stooges in our Democrat Party who have played along with Chavez's heating oil propaganda stunt:

Can you say "lapdogs"? That's what Joe Kennedy, U.S. Rep. William Delahunt, a Democrat from Massachusetts, and U.S. Rep. Jose Serrano, a New York Democrat, are when it comes to home heating oil and Chávez. I'm being kind with that description. All three ignore the outright threats and insults that Chávez has issued to the United States and its president and government. The shallowness of their character is astounding, especially since it's motivated by contempt for President George W. Bush and our own democratically elected government.

Shrillary's Anti-Caucasian Co-Chair

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:04 AM

Just when I thought nothing Dems could do would appall me anymore, Hillary Clinton has managed to achieve yet another new low by hiring Raul Yzaguirre, former president of the National Council of La Raza, to co-chair her campaign in an effort to pander for Hispanic votes.

Needless to say, this is a pretty good indication that Shrillary Rotten has no plans whatsoever to defend our country from the illegal immigrant invasion. La Raza is "one of the prime advocates for illegal immigrants" in the USA, according to Ira Mehlman of FAIR, who notes that the organization has done its best (or worst)

to make sure that laws against illegal immigration were not enforced and that illegal immigrants themselves paid no consequence for having violated the law, and [La Raza members] have been lobbyists for programs like amnesty [and] all sorts of other benefits for people who are in the country illegally.

But that Dems would put the interests of illegal foreign invaders ahead of those of American citizens will come as news to no one by now. We can expect no better even of many Republicans — President Bush most definitely included.

What's really disturbing here is that La Raza ("The Race") isn't just an advocacy group for illegal aliens — it is as explicitly racist as the Ku Klux Klan, and closely associated with the even more openly fanatical Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan (MEChA), whose platform calls for demographic conquest of the southwestern third of the USA, followed by an ethnic cleansing campaign to drive out anyone lacking the correct ancestry. Their motto:

For The Race everything. Outside The Race, nothing.

No one could be more hostile to America and Americans. Even al-Qaeda would let us keep our own country if we converted to Islam. Shrillary's friends hate us right down to our DNA.

Jim McGreevey to Teach Ethics

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:09 AM

At least the libs running academia have a sense of humor — even if the joke is on those paying tuition. James McGreevey, the corrupt former Governor of New Jersey who put his homosexual love interest — a foreign national — in charge of the state's security, who publicly betrayed his family, and who followed it all up by moving in with a rich gay sugar daddy and suing his poor wife for custody of their 5-year-old daughter and even child support, will be teaching ethics at a New Jersey public college.

Via Blogmeister USA, here's where ethics expert McGreedy has been shacking up with his latest gay lover:

mark-odonnell_mansion.jpg

Here's where his wife lives — at least until she has to sell the place to pay legal bills and child support due to McCreepy's appalling greed:

dina-matos_house.jpg

Kean University in Union, New Jersey has seen fit to hire McCreepy as an "executive in residence," which means he is both a teacher and a consultant. Since it's a public school, it also means he can keep putting in time that counts toward his state pension.

Observes State Republican Chairman Tom Wilson:

Jim McGreevey teaching law and ethics is a little bit like Doctor Kevorkian teaching health maintenance.

Along similar lines, V the K wonders:

What's Next, Don Imus hired as Diversity Coordinator? Mark Foley hired as Director of Youth Programs? Cynthia McKinney for Director of Campus Security? Rudy Giuliani as a Marriage Counselor?

But McCreepazoid's friend Raymond Lesniak, a Dem State Senator, comes to his defense with this spirited endorsement:

The guy wasn't a complete failure. I wouldn't mind going to the class myself if I were a student.

Why not attend anyway? It's never too late for New Jersey politicians to learn about ethics.

Moonbat Morality in the EU and the Entertainment Industry

Posted by Dave Blount at 5:54 PM

The European Union continues to lurch forward toward a bizarre, dystopian future in which it is a criminal offense to criticize your own society's enemies.

Any criticism of the ongoing Islamic conquest of Europe will be subject to a 1–3-year prison term if dhimmified bureauweenies choose to construe it as expressing hatred "against a group of persons or a member of such a group defined by reference to race, color, religion, descent or national or ethnic origin."

This outrage against the concept of freedom of expression reflects "Europe's common moral values," according to EU Justice Commissioner Franco Frattini.

In other moonbat morality news, Drudge reports on rap star Cam'ron's proud announcement that he would not tell the police if he discovered a serial killer living next door because that would violate his "code of ethics." The entertainment industry that produced Cam'ron systematically injects this code of ethics into the developing minds of our youth.

I believe … that this war is lost, and this surge is not accomplishing anything, as is shown by the extreme violence in Iraq this week.

The extreme violence he refers to would be so ineffective as never to happen in the first place if terrorists didn't know they could count on their allies in the Democrat Party and mainstream media to serve as amplifiers.

Having surrendered, the only thing that remains is to bring our allegedly defeated troops home, so they can fight al-Qaeda in Manhattan instead of Baghdad. Reid and other Dems hope to accomplish this by tying funding of soldiers in the field to establishing a timetable for their retreat. If President Bush won't play ball, our troops can walk home when they run out of bullets.

Needless to say the United States will not be winning any wars with characters like Reid in positions of authority.

Chavez Imposes "Socialist Formation" Classes

Posted by Dave Blount at 2:44 PM

Anyone still in denial that Venezuela's Hugo Chavez has been positioning himself as a totalitarian dictator might be interested to learn that his government will require workers to spend four hours per week in "socialist formation" classes.

Employers are required to form "Bolivarian Work Councils" to run courses on the job. The point of the classes is to speed the transition from economic freedom to slavery by teaching the official government version of Venezuelan history and "basic tools for analyzing reality, the environment, the role of the state and socialist scheme."

The classes will start with public sector jobs, then be imposed on the crippled remnants of private business, after Chavez issues a new law by decree that will establish reeducation guidelines.

Reeducation. Chavez's fellow socialist Pol Pot was so fond of the concept, he built reeducation centers all over Cambodia:

Ordinary people were forced to march to agricultural reeducation centers all around the country. Families with sick members had to carry their sick members or drag them in their hospital beds. Because the Khmer Rouge were strict Maoists, they wanted to destroy all social divisions down to even the family unit. The Khmer Rouge wanted to purify Khmer society and bring the people back to the old way, before they were invaded by the west. Every one was put to work in the rice patties. Thousands died from overwork and malnutrition. Countless more were killed by the Khmer Rouge effort to eliminate all western influences.

If Chavez has something similar in mind for Venezuela (and Pol Pot is hardly the only precedent), the USA had better be sure not to put a stop to it. I'm sure the UN — not to mention the Democrat Party — would highly disapprove of such unilateral imperialism.

Some Are Learning From Virginia Tech Massacre

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:04 AM

At least some people are sadder but also wiser in the wake of the Virginia Tech massacre. In Tennessee, a House panel voted to repeal a state law forbidding handguns on government-owned property.

As Republican State Rep. Frank Niceley explains:

I think the recent Virginia disaster — or catastrophe or nightmare or whatever you want to call it — has woken up a lot of people to the need for having guns available to law-abiding citizens.

Next time a misanthropic maniac goes on a rampage, it will probably be somewhere other than Tennessee. It's just not as fun when the victims aren't victims because they shoot back.

Environmentalism's Genocidal Agenda

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:47 PM

By now you're probably wondering just what we would have to do to satisfy environmentalists that we are not imposing on Mother Nature. The answer is: cease to exist.

Ric Oberlink of Californians for Population Stabilization cuts to the chase by proclaiming that the emission of gases alleged to cause global warming is a result of human activity in general, "like most environmental problems." Forcing people to use overpriced light bulbs will get us nowhere. What we need to do, according to Oberlink, is reduce the human population by half.

If we've got to get rid of billions of humans, who should go first? Since we are dealing with moonbats, the answer should be obvious: Americans. After all, we are "by far the most voracious consumers and the greatest producers of greenhouse gases per capita of any nation on earth."

At least they only want half the human population gone. Eric Pianka, a professor at University of Texas, is shooting for 90%.

Pianka is hoping disease can do the job. Others want us to stop reproducing. If these people had the power, it's likely they would resort to more direct methods. In the Third Reich, it was known as the Final Solution. Randy Alcorn, a senior writing fellow with Californians for Population Stabilization, calls it "prudent population reduction policies."

No ideology ever devised could be more profoundly antihuman — and therefore, more evil — than modern environmentalism.

Olbermann Manages to Blame Bush For Virginia Tech Massacre

Posted by Dave Blount at 1:44 PM

Guess who barking moonbat Keith Olbermann blames for the Virginia Tech massacre? Hint: the answer isn't Cho Seung-Hui:

At least one of the weapons used by the shooter is believed, as we said, to be a nine millimeter semi-automatic pistol […] with a clip designed to hold more than 10 shots. Clips like those were banned under the Assault Weapons Law of 1994, but Congress and President Bush allowed that law to expire more than two years ago.

By Olbie's alternative to logic, the massacre could never have claimed so many lives if George Bush in his bloodthirstiness, along with his henchmen in the Republican Congress we had two years ago, hadn't allowed the sale of high-capacity magazines, since it never would have occurred to Seung-Hui to remove an empty clip and replace it with a full one.

However, Confederate Yankee begs to differ that the 1994 had anything to do with high-capacity magazines:

High-capacity magazines have been around for more than half a century, and the sale of high-capacity magazines was not impacted whatsoever by the 1994 Crime Bill. These magazines were freely and commercially available, both in retail stores and online, without interruption, for the 10-year life of the ban, the decades preceding it, and afterward.

Apparently Olbie chooses to believe what he reads at ABC News. He should know better.

Here's video of Olbie once again making a fool of himself, via Olbermann Watch:

Japanese Mayor Shot Despite Rigid Gun Laws

Maybe liberal politicians have no qualms about forcibly disarming us because it's only the little people who will get killed by maniacs like Cho Seung-Hui. Politicians — and pro–gun control entertainment industry moonbats like Rosie O'Donnell — have armed bodyguards to keep them safe. However, this didn't help Iccho Ito, Mayor of Nagasaki, who was shot to death yesterday by organized crime chief Tetsuya Shiroo.

Handguns are strictly banned in Japan. Unsurprisingly, criminals don't seem to honor the ban. This is the second time a Mayor of Nagasaki has been shot.

No Room For Jesus at Virginia Tech Convocation

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:04 AM

What religion would most likely represent the beliefs of students and faculty in Blacksburg, Virginia? Judging by a convocation held at Virginia Tech yesterday, it wouldn't be Christianity. Allah and Buddha were called upon by name, but not Jesus Christ. Apparently the likely beliefs of the victims can't compete with the importance of toeing the line of political correctness.

A Muslim was the first cleric to deliver remarks, presumably due to the special place of honor Islam has had in our culture ever since September 11, 2001. This would be particularly ironic if it turns out the Virginia Tech murders, like so many senseless killings in the past, were motivated by Islam.

Cho Seung-Hui Motivated By Religion of Peace?

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:40 AM

No one is quite sure why Virginia Tech mass murderer Cho Seung-Hui had the words "Ismail Ax" written in red ink on one arm, but in the context of Islam, the words are related.

Ibrahim is considered the father of prophets. He famously used an ax to smash statues worshiped by idolaters. His son Ismail went on to become a prophet too. Each year Muslims slaughter sacrificial sheep in honor of Eid al-Adha, which commemorates Ibrahim's willingness to sacrifice Ismail to Allah.

Don't look for the MSM to play up this angle.

Barack Obama Compares Virginia Tech Massacre to Saying "Nappy-Headed"

Taking a lack of perspective to the point of psychosis, liberal flavor of the month Barack Hussein Obama is actually out there comparing the Virginia Tech massacre to the "verbal violence" of Don Imus having spoken the forbidden words "nappy-headed ho's."

Here's a link to audio via Ben Smith's Blog. Pour yourself a tall cup of coffee before you listen or B.O.'s soporific speaking style will soon have your face on your desk and drool dribbling from your open mouth as you snore.

B. Hussein also took the opportunity to compare the bloodthirsty murder of 32 innocent people to the outsourcing of jobs to other countries, and to the plight of "children whose voices are not heard" and who are surrounded by "lack of hope."

Virginia Tech Massacre Brings Out the Worst in Moonbats

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:39 PM

Bizarrely yet predictably, liberals are blaming the gun restrictions that allowed the Virginia Tech massacre to claim so many lives — for not being stringent enough. The insufferable snobbery that serves the European press in lieu of dignity has been on full display as it finds in the tragedy yet another opportunity to denounce Americans, mainly for stubbornly clinging to our right not to be disarmed. France's Le Monde is typical:

This new tragedy presents a new opportunity for American public opinion to interrogate itself about a society which […] is very much responsible for what has happened.

Also on full display have been the obtuseness and vileness of our own homegrown moonbats. Naturally the liberal weenies running our media agree that if unarmed citizens are slaughtered by a criminal, it must be because of the Second Amendment hasn't been repealed.

HuffPo kook Joseph Palermo blames Cho Seung-Hui's massacre on the war in Iraq:

I think it is also fair to place some of the blame on our political leaders who called for us to invade and occupy Iraq. The bloodbath and carnage daily reported out of Iraq, as well as our young people going in and out of that death trap, provide the background noise for the violence that pervades our society.

Surprisingly, he didn't manage to bring global warming into it.

The creepy-crawlies wriggling around under the rock called Democratic Underground are mad because Bush did his job by going to Blacksburg for a memorial service. Some sample remarks:

Security and traffic jams all because asshole wants a photo op
He is such a fucking narcissist, any opportunity to inject himself into the public eye - My God.
It's Bush's 2007 "stand on the rubble with a bullhorn" moment. Ugh.

Meanwhile, Queen of the Moonbats Rosie O'Donnell wants to know why Bush went to Blacksburg right away, whereas with Katrina he waited until after the hurricane stopped.

Virginia Tech Tragedy Might Have Been Avoided

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:00 PM

Compounding the tragedy at Virginia Tech is the fact that it might have been avoided if not for moonbattery.

A 2005 bill would have prevented Virginia state universities from enacting "rules or regulations limiting or abridging the ability of a student who possesses a valid concealed handgun permit … from lawfully carrying a concealed handgun."

On behalf of VT's educrats, spokesman Larry Hincker expressed delight when the bill failed:

I'm sure the university community is appreciative of the General Assembly's actions, because this will help parents, students, faculty and visitors feel safe on our campus.

But as experience keeps teaching us, law-abiding citizens are never safe when they have been disarmed by their government. Even a single maniac — who is not going to be worried about gun laws — can put them in the position of being systematically slaughtered until such a time as the government shows up to cart the bodies away.

As Erich Pratt of Virginia's Gun Owners of America observes:

The only schools and universities where these tragedies have been stopped abruptly were the places where law-abiding citizens had a gun that was accessible to them and they were able to stop the shooter. The schools and universities that had to wait for the police to arrive, those are the ones that find these high death tolls.

The massacre at Virginia Tech took as many lives as it did because there were no armed citizens in a position to put a stop to it.

Tommy Thompson Apologizes For Accusing Jews of Earning Money

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:28 PM

Shot-in-a-billion presidential candidate Tommy Thompson has taken ethnic hypersensitivity neurosis beyond parody by apologizing to Jews for suggesting they earn money.

The bar is so low now, this counts as a controversial remark:

I'm in the private sector and for the first time in my life I'm earning money. You know that's sort of part of the Jewish tradition and I do not find anything wrong with that.

If he doesn't find anything wrong with it, then why is he apologizing? Though Thompson's a Republican, he seems to have bought into the liberal belief that earning money — as opposed to having the government steal it for you — is somehow morally wrong. Here's Thompson spokesman Tony Jewell groveling on his boss' behalf:

Governor Thompson recognizes he misspoke in his remarks to the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, and is very apologetic, especially given his strong relationship with the Jewish community blah blah blah…

Maybe sniveling apologies have become a national reflex. Apology or no apology, it's a good thing Thompson doesn't host a talk show, or he would probably be out of work.

Botched Joke Joins the Eco-Hypocrite Brigade

Joining the list of sanctimonious left-wing hypocrites who preach the global warming gospel while creating gargantuan carbon footprints to heat and cool their luxurious abodes is the insufferable John "Botched Joke" Kerry, who runs up a $1,100 monthly electric bill at his Beacon Hill townhouse.

Botched Joke can take pride in having surpassed the High Priest of the global warming cult, Al Gore, who earns a $1,080/month bill at one of his homes. (Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) asked Gore to sign a pledge to reduce his grossly excessive power use. The Goracle declined.)

In contrast, global warming skeptic Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX) pays $79.47 total for two homes.

Kerry clambered aboard the global warming bandwagon with the recent release of the book This Moment on Earth: Today's New Environmentalists and Their Vision for the Future. Despite having promised to spare the country the humiliation of another run for President, Kerry is predictably flip-flopping once again, justifying his indecision by claiming that he needs to see that other candidates will take pandering to global warming hysteria far enough to suit him.

The Global Warming Money Trail

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:14 AM

To Newsweek's credit, a recent issue devoted to hyping the global warming hoax included a piece by MIT Professor of Meteorology Richard Lindzen, who refuses to drink the Kool-Aid. Lindzen observes that climate fluctuation is normal, and that warmer weather would be beneficial, not catastrophic. As Jeff Jacoby points out, Newsweek felt compelled to include a disclaimer that Lindzen "receives no funding from any energy companies," thoughtfully inoculating him from the standard claim that anyone who won't pretend to see clothes on the naked Emperor Albert is a shill for Big Oil.

Actually, the shills are on the other side. The global warming hoax may put the screws to the poor and middle class, but its perpetrators are making a mint. The reason unscrupulous scientists are willing to play along is that by hyping it into a crisis, they guarantee themselves fortunes in grant money.

NASA's wild-eyed James Hansen, for example, won a $250,000 Heinz Award in 2001, and last month was co-winner of the $1 million Dan David Prize. As Jacoby notes:

Other awards have gone to other prophets of doom. And the potential rewards don't stop there. For those who toe the politically correct line on global warming, there have been big book contracts, hefty speaking fees, worshipful magazine profiles, softball TV interviews. Should any of that call their objectivity into question?

Nah. They just don't want the poor polar bears to get sweaty.

Colony Collapse Disorder

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:02 PM

If you bought global warming, maybe you'd like some of this: The influential group known in the media as "some scientists" now claims that cell phones give off radiation that disorients bees, which will cause harvests to fail, in turn resulting in massive food shortages. This crisis even has a name: Colony Collapse Disorder or CCD.

I wonder if cell phones work on killer bees. Remember when we were supposed to be terrified they would engulf North America? With so many apocalyptic crises being fabricated by the media, it's hard to keep them straight, but I believe the killer bees fell somewhere between global cooling and Y2K.

In a phony crisis double whammy, some are claiming that CCD is caused not by cell phones, but by global warming. If global warming can cause snowstorms in the middle of April, anything's possible.

Michael Moore Exploits 9/11 Responders

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:59 PM

The liberal myth that healthcare in the hand-to-mouth hellhole communism has made of Cuba is superior to America's will be getting a boost in Michael Moore's next assault on America, a film aptly entitled Sicko.

While it is true that healthcare for foreigners with hard currency is much better than the third-world medical conditions faced by native Cubans, Castro himself has been relying on Spain for his medical care since he began camping out on death's door.

cuban_hospital.jpg

Ever striving to achieve new lows, Michael Moore sent sick 9/11 responders to Cuba for treatment, in a stunt meant to assure gullible Kool-Aid–guzzlers that you can get better medical care in Havana than you can in New York.

Responders were offered a two-week trip to Cuba to avail themselves of allegedly new techniques for treating the sort of respiratory problems they developed at Ground Zero — at the price of being used as pawns in Moore's anti-American propaganda film.

This price was too high for some. Says Jeff Endean, a former SWAT commander with lung problems who spent a month at Ground Zero:

He's using people that are in a bad situation and that's wrong, that's morally wrong.

Says ironworker Joe Picurro, who received an offer from Moore:

I would rather die in America than go to Cuba. I just laughed. I couldn't do it.

Disabled medic Michael McCormack ill-advisedly took Moore up on his offer, but after an on-camera interview, Moore took off to Cuba without him. As McCormack explains:

What he [Moore] wanted to do is shove it up George W's rear end that 9/11 heroes had to go to a communist country to get adequate health care.

In addition to disseminating this preposterous lie, Moore wants to do something else: deconsecrate Ground Zero, so that it can no longer serve as a rallying point for patriotic impulses. Those who took part in rescue efforts there performed a sacred task. Therefore, they must be portrayed as victims of America, for the same reason the media obsesses on Pat Tillman having been killed by friendly fire. The Left cannot allow us to have national heroes, or we might develop enough self-respect to scrape liberalism off of our culture.

Pravda's Take on Imus

Posted by Dave Blount at 5:54 PM

As Russia under Putin gets more and more like the Soviet Union, Pravda is up to its old tricks, striving mightily to outdo our own media in putting an anti-American spin on whatever happens in the world. Here's Pravda's take on Imus' lynching:

In a clear sign of its intent to reign in dissident American media personalities, and their growing influence in American culture, US War Leaders this past week launched an unprecedented attack upon one of their most politically "connected," and legendary, radio hosts named Don Imus after his threats to release information relating to the September 11, 2001 attacks upon that country. […]
Unable to attack such a powerful media figure as Don Imus, directly, the US War Leaders, and as we have seen many times before, resorted to a massive media attack against him using as the reason a racial slur against a US woman's basketball team, but which has been pointed out by other media outlets was not by any means a rare occurrence for the legendary radio icon to make.

Pravda compares Imus to Charlie Sheen, a drug-addled half-wit who thinks George Bush blew up the World Trade Center. Presumably "US War Leaders" will soon accuse Sheen of being politically incorrect and terminate his career too.

Of course if you tried to explain the truth, that Imus was axed in an act of obeisance to the lowlife racist thugs Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, the Russians would never believe it — and I don't blame them.

Post-Imus Reign of PC Terror Targets High School Baseball Coach

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:41 AM

Heads will roll in the aftermath of Don Imus' trip to the guillotine for calling some basketball players "nappy headed ho's." One example is Dave Austin, formerly the baseball coach for Putnam High School in Connecticut.

In an attempt to motivate his players after a particularly lame practice session, Austin singled out certain players, even comparing the play of one of them to that of girls and — brace yourself — using a homosexual slur.

As with Imus, he was first told he was suspended, then that he was fired, though Principal Bill Barry claims Austin actually "decided to resign."

His resignation is reminiscent of the suicides of party officials under Stalin — the kind where someone falls out of Uncle Joe's favor and gets so broken up about it as to empty a revolver into his own head. Austin puts it frankly:

I was forced to resign. I did not quit.

He's not the only one who isn't happy about it. Sue Gardner, a parent of one of the players, says of the team:

Their loyalty is and probably always will be to Dave. He has done nothing but good for these kids.

Says Chris Roberts, a senior and fan of the team:

The situation is pretty bad right now. A lot of us think it's pretty messed up that the school just threw (Austin) out and didn't give him another chance.

The situation is bad all right — and steadily getting worse. Freedom of speech isn't guaranteed by our Constitution so much as by our national character, which has been so severely eroded by moonbattery that we now have to live in terror of accidentally offending politically privileged groups like blacks and homosexuals.

As for Putnam High's baseball team, it has a new interim coach, who we can be confident will never offend any homosexuals — or win many ballgames. Barry himself has taken over the team.

Moonbats Plan Global Warming Rallies in Late April Snow

Providing further evidence that moonbats lost in their alternate reality of liberal propaganda are only dimly aware of the actual world around them, global warming cultists plan to proceed with rallies today, despite weeks of unusually cold weather.

As anyone who has lived in Michigan can tell you, it's way too cold up there even under normal circumstances. Yet environmental activist Bill McKibben screeches that if Congress doesn't do something about the nonexistent warming, water temperatures will rise. We may even face the nightmare scenario of people being able to swim without a wetsuit before the end of June. Oh, and there will be new "invasive species" — though it's hard to imagine a species more harmful to the Michigan economy than moonbats.



Christ Killa

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:09 AM

The latest example of cowardly children in the arts community pretending to be bold by attacking Christianity is an "artwork" consisting of a video game where you shoot Jesus. From the press release:

Described as the ultimate arbitration between politics and Christianity, “Christ Killa” is a video game linked to video projectors and television monitors. A first person shooter in which the player shoots hordes of homicidal Jesus Christs, the game landscape is filled with Googled images of Christian propaganda posters, religious shrines such as St. Peter’s in Rome, and clichéd representations of Christ who constantly mumbles messages of tolerance and compassion.

Michelle Malkin comments on the bold edginess exhibited by the "artist," Eric Medine:

You want edgy? Go ahead and create "Mohammed Killa." Replace the Homicidal Jesus Christs with Homicidal Mohammeds mumbling clichéd messages of peace from the Koran. Fill the "game landscape" with Googled images of Muslim propaganda and sacred mosques while the Homicidal Mohammeds blow themselves up in crowded schools, restaurants, buses, and markets.
Put that on exhibit. Go ahead. Be a maaaverick "artist." Show us how brave you are at offending all people of faith.
Double dare you, Mr. Medine.

Given the level of courage that typifies moonbats, it's unlikely that Medine or anyone else in the arts community will be responding to the challenge.

Imus Insanity Opens Path For Leftist Censorship Power Play

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:57 AM

It isn't only sophomoric kooks like Keith Olbermann who see in the absurd lynching of Don Imus a green light to rid the airwaves of anyone whose opinions don't concur with their own. More ominously, the insidious David Brock has this to say:

I applaud CBS for listening to reason and canceling Imus in the Morning. Viewers and listeners sent the clear message that they would no longer tolerate bigotry on America's airwaves. It is our hope that this incident will begin a broader conversation about the responsibility that news corporations, journalists, and media figures have to the American public. This is an opportunity for the media to truly raise the bar to a higher standard and return to the fundamentals of journalism.

This will sound high-minded only to those who have spent the last 30 years in a cave and don't understand that "bigotry" and "racism" now mean "anything the Left doesn't want you to hear." The "fundamentals of journalism" in Brock's lingo translates to "left-wing propaganda completely undiluted by opposing points of view."

Like Olbermann, Brock singles out Rush Limbaugh for destruction. Though there is no sane reason to call El Rushbo a "racist," that certainly won't stop totalitarian liberals from sending their nemesis to the same sort of politically correct auto de fe that claimed Imus at the first opportunity.

Brock, who incidentally would like you to know that he's gay, also wants Bill O'Reilly silenced. Why not? There is no way liberals could compete with either Rush or O'Reilly without resorting to coercion.

Slated for a witch burning by both Brock and Olbermann are talk show hosts Neal Boortz and Michael Savage. Glenn Beck, the token conservative at CNN's Headline News, will also be silenced if Brock gets his way, as will Ann Coulter and even MSNBC's Tucker Carlson.

What makes Brock more frightening than Olbermann is that he is not a clown, but a professional propagandist who receives funding as part of the Shadow Party by zillionaire leftists George Soros and Peter Lewis. Brock is President and CEO of Media Matters for America, a lefty outfit that evades campaign finance restrictions with its 501(c)(3) tax code status.

Other unsavory characters involved in Media Matters include Clintonista John Podesta, Shrillary Clinton, and the ever-frightening Al Gore. It also receives cash from the Tides Foundation, run by Teresa Heinz Kerry. As Sweetness & Light puts it:

In other words, Media Matters For America is just another front for the Democrat Party.

That this Democrat Party front would take money from political extremists and use it to advocate the silencing of opposing political views behind the smokescreen of "racism" reveals the threat it poses to the basic freedoms Americans hold dear.

Senile Senator Eulogizes Lapdog

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:02 AM

It looks like Baba Wawa may not be the only famous moonbat to fall in love with a dog. WaPo reports on the testimony before the Senate of Robert "Sheets" Byrd (D-WV), regarding his affection for one of those miniature dogs that yip and yap and need to be carried around because their legs are too short:

In a lengthy discourse, he informed the panel three times that he has a Shih Tzu, nine times that his late wife named the dog Trouble, and three times that he prefers to call it Baby.

Excerpts from the senile Senator's testimony:

She sleeps on my bed. She goes with me to the Senate, rides in the car with me. She stays in my office. When somebody comes into the office, she rises and comes over and greets them, goes on about her business and gets back on the couch. […]
There is a unique, special relationship between pets, like my little dog. She is a Shih Tzu. They were lap dogs. They were trained to be lap dogs in the palace in Tibet, China. […]
Dogs — I could talk a lot about dogs. I can tell you about great dogs in history. Truman, Harry Truman, former president, said, "If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog." Or buy a dog. But I have a dog. Her name, by my wife Erma, is Trouble. Now, I call her Baby.

At one point in his ramblings, Byrd referred to himself as "Popeye the Sailor Man." Finally becoming aware of muffled laughter, he explained why he was spending so much of everyone's time on a lapdog:

This is not for a show. I don't often do this. I'm interested in a little dog.

Byrd is one of the most powerful Democrats in Washington.

Halloween in April at Walter Reed

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:15 AM

Thanks to the conspicuous absence of the global warming liberals keep promising, Easter weekend in the capital felt like Christmas. But outside Walter Reed Hospital, it looked more like Halloween, as moonbats from Code Pink, Veterans for Peace, and other progressive sects continue to demonstrate in hopes of demoralizing our troops. Here's a sight that greeted families coming to visit wounded relatives:

Walter-Reed_moonbat.jpg

That's a Hula-Hoop around the moonbat's waist. Presumably the bunny ears are in honor of Easter. How would you like to think you lost you legs fighting to defend this piece of work?

Says Raoul Deming, whose son is an active U.S. Navy officer:

This display is typical, rather than any kind of extraordinary effort on the part of the anti-war left. Though the mainstream media wishes to portray the anti-war left as rational and representative of America, they are not. It made me sad that our wounded are being taunted by today's anti-war left the same way our troops were mistreated during Vietnam.

Sadder still is that as in Vietnam, the protesters' snappily dressed brethren in the news industry and Democrat Party are seeing to it that the troops' sacrifices will be in vain.



Media Elite Continue to Condemn Duke Lacrosse Players for Being Privileged and White

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:53 AM

Some might have thought there was a silver lining to the Duke lacrosse case, in that at least we would learn to stop letting liberals replace justice with their sick ideology to the extent of throwing people in jail for being white guys from nice families. But then, some thought lessons would be learned from the O.J. case. ABC News' Terry Moran, for one, still clings tight to his moonbattery.

Even Moran admits that the players "are truly innocent of the charges brought against them." But that doesn't mean they aren't racists! Sexists! Privileged! White! Et cetera! Ad nauseam!

Therefore, "the outpouring of sympathy for Reade Seligman, Collin Finnerty and David Evans is just a bit misplaced." You see, lots of people get railroaded by corrupt prosecutors. Ignoring the fact that the players were charged specifically because they were white and have nice families, he advances the view that they only escaped Nifong's clutches because family money could buy nice lawyers. In the end the case was no biggie because "these young men will get on with their privileged lives."

Wagging a righteous finger Moran reminds us that most victims of prosecutorial misconduct "are poor or minority Americans — or both." But the politically correct ideologues running the media only care about white people, according to the politically correct ideologue Moron, who seems disappointed the kids couldn't serve at least a few years just for being Caucasian, which is after all the crime for which they were arrested.

An Ecstatic Olbermann Wants More Blood

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:18 PM

Anyone familiar with the history of the Inquisition will be unsurprised to learn that the sacrifice of Don Imus on the altar of moonbattery over a harmless off-hand comment is hardly going to sate our modern-day Torquemadas. On the contrary, the blood in the water is driving liberal piranhas into a frenzy.

Barking moonbat Keith Olbermann's soapbox is provided by the same MSNBC that shoved Imus overboard in a futile attempt to appease race-baiting goons like Al Sharpton. He's been shouting from it at the top of his lungs, demanding a totalitarian crackdown on radio hosts who express opinions sane enough not to meet with his approval:

Why have none from the racist right been protested, boycotted or fired?

The phrase racist right, coming from someone on Olbermann's frequency, includes most anyone less liberal than Dennis Kucinich. Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage, and Neal Boortz were singled out by name as needing to be silenced.

When Sam Seder of the floundering lunatic-left Air America predicted that "the next time Limbaugh slips up, which I think is inevitable, I think you're going to see this sort of same type of reaction," Olbermann's response was ecstatic:

It's the best thing I've heard in a couple of days. From your lips to God's ears!

At the risk of stating the obvious, the lynching of Imus and the bloodbath creeps like Olbermann long for have nothing to do with "racism" — as if that word had any meaning anymore. The authoritarian Left has figured out that when people talk for a living, sooner or later they are going to say something that can be hyped and distorted into a blasphemy against our official state religion, Political Correctness. Imus' career was destroyed simply to prove that it could be. Now the Stalinist lynch mob will move on to bigger game.

Enviromoonbattery Threatens Food Supply

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:09 PM

Environmental kookiness is indulged in at a price all of us must pay. According to the USDA, the supply of beef, pork, and chicken will shrink by one billion pounds this year because of the high cost of feed, a result of corn being used as politically correct but inefficient fuel instead of food.

Political pressure to produce ethanol has jacked the price of maize up to $4 a bushel. No longer able to afford feeding them, farmers are rearing fewer animals and slaughtering them earlier.

Animals aren't the only ones who would eat corn if it were still affordable. Inflated prices are causing hunger in Mexico, where corn tortillas are a main dietary staple.

The point of ethanol is of course to alleviate anthropogenic global warming — a problem that exists only in the fevered minds of moonbats. In contrast, the problems presented by food shortages are quite real.



Moonbats Turn on Starbucks

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:00 AM

You would think Starbucks would get some gratitude for providing such a comfortable setting for moonbats with silly hair and earrings in their noses to discuss the violent overthrow of American white-bread capitalist hegemony over $5 grande triple mocha cinnamon dolce tutti-frutti frappuccinos. But no: Starbucks is under moonbat attack.

A young malcontent named Daniel Gross decided he didn't like working at Starbucks because it's too hard and the scheduling is unreliable. Rather than take advantage of low unemployment to find another job more to his liking, he decided to force Starbucks to conform to his requirements.

Now Starbucks finds itself menaced by the Starbucks Workers Union, which has reached "critical mass" by recruiting members at nine of the 9,401 Starbucks stores in the USA. Allegedly recruitment would be even more impressive, except that Starbucks has been fighting dirty by firing troublemaking bums like Gross.

But Gross is studying for a law degree. Once he has it, he plans to force the company to rehire him, bravely subjecting himself once again to the totalitarian horrors of employment at Starbucks, which he describes like this:

They've got rules for everything. The iced teas get 10 shakes. Not nine. Not eight. Before you hand it to the customer, 10 shakes. They're terrified a union will come in and say "Nine shakes is enough."

Litigation has already resulted in a consent decree in which Starbucks had to promise that it would not create the impression that "union activities are under surveillance."

Apparently Starbucks' attempt to maintain a moonbatty public image is not affording it enough protection. Maybe corporations will learn to focus on making money, and leave flaky liberal foolishness to the news media.

Blair Dares to Hold Black Culture Accountable

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:41 AM

The main reason black culture in the USA has degenerated to the point that vermin like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are accepted as its representatives is that moonbattery prevents blacks from ever being held accountable for their behavior, which in turn prevents the development of self-respect and personal responsibility. Crystal Gail Mangum is a case in point. She won't be arrested for trying to frame the Duke lacrosse players because according to the liberal creed, she is "disadvantaged" — i.e., too inferior to be held to human standards of behavior. Yet it is conservatives who are accused of racism.

In Britain, where social decay in the black community has produced a rising wave of violent crime, Tony Blair is making a brave effort to confront this phenomenon. As Blair put it, he was "lurching into total frankness" when he observed that the violence will not be stemmed "by pretending it is not young black kids doing it."

Naturally black leaders reacted by condemning Blair. The Reverend Nims Obunge, possibly Britain's answer to Reverend Al, denounced Blair's plans to clamp down on violent criminals as "more police powers to use against our black children." Keith Jarrett of the National Black Police Association blamed the high rate of violent crime on "social deprivation." The answer presumably is more of the free handouts that allowed this social degeneration to get out of control in the first place.

While Blair will pay lip service to "economic inequality," he's aware that the cause of the problem is that "youngsters are being brought up in a setting that has no rules, no discipline, no proper framework around them." He even noted that this is the result of many black boys being raised in fatherless households.

Good thing Blair doesn't rely on corporate advertising, or he would be in deep trouble for saying this:

We need to stop thinking of this as a society that has gone wrong — it has not — but of specific groups that for specific reasons have gone outside of the proper lines of respect and good conduct towards others and need by specific measures to be brought back into the fold.

Liberals love root causes, yet they avoid examining the root causes of antisocial behavior in the black community — choosing instead to throw up a smokescreen of meaningless terms like "racism," "disadvantaged," "historically oppressed," etc. The actual cause is social decay that creates a vicious cycle by producing fatherless households. This social decay is caused in turn by an absence of sexual morality and personal responsibility, and by a welfare state that makes the conventional family structure dispensable.

In short, it is caused by moonbattery — which threatens to have a similar effect on society as a whole.

Duke's White Lynching Party Finally Over

Posted by Dave Blount at 2:11 PM

Finally the last of the trumped-up charges against the three Duke lacrosse players falsely accused of raping stripper Crystal Gail Mangum have been dropped. As became clear long ago, the Caucasian players were deliberately railroaded by prosecutor Mike Nifong so as to help him sew up the black vote prior to an election.

The damage that has been done to the players, their families, and everyone involved in lacrosse at Duke is hard to quantitate, but it's less that what it would have been if Nifong had succeeded in sacrificing their young lives to his political ambitions.

There were no non-political reasons to believe the accuser's story, which was easily disproved, changed several times, and was unsupported by any evidence or witness corroboration. North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper has officially announced that the players are innocent.

No charges will be brought against Mangum. At least Nifong will stand trial for withholding evidence from defense attorneys and lying to the court and bar investigators.

Meanwhile, we're expected to be outraged because some jerk used the expression "nappy-headed ho's." That's what moonbattery can do to a society's sense of perspective.

Pelousy and Lantos May Be Planning Junket to Iran

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:18 AM

In the wake of Nancy Pelosi's recent disastrous trip to Syria and Iran's kidnapping of 15 British military personnel, our Speaker of the House seems to think the time is ripe to violate the Logan Act once again by taking her shadow presidency act to Iran.

Her sidekick will again be Rep. Tom Lantos (D-CA), who thanks to last fall's election debacle has taken over chairmanship of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Bubbles Lantos:

Speaking for myself, I'm ready to go — and knowing the speaker, I think that she might be.

Rather than shoot down this demented idea, Pelosi enthused over the "great experience, knowledge and judgment" Lantos displayed while the two were making fools of themselves at our country's expense in Syria.

Lantos is a survivor of the Holocaust, which Iran's Mad Mahmoud Ahmadinejad both denies happened and openly plans to reenact using nuclear weapons. Yet he is willing to play into the dictator's hands, if that's what it takes to stick a finger in our President's eye. The depravity of moonbattery knows no bounds.

The Message "Smile, God Loves You" Banned by Elementary School

The moonbat campaign to stamp out Christianity marches forward at the Wrightsville Elementary School in Pennsylvania, where fifth-grader Tawney Lehman was forced to remove a magnet from her desk because it read "Smile, God Loves You."

When her mother complained that Christianity is once again being singled out for suppression, Principal Donald Gillet responded in typical educrat fashion — by banning all magnets no matter what they say.

Shockingly, this would even include magnets reading "Cower, Allah Hates You." It's hard to believe that a principal could be so Islamophobic.

Moonbats Divert National Security Resources to Global Warming Hoax

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:28 PM

If Nancy Pelosi's recent violation of the Logan Act didn't make it obvious that moonbats can under no circumstances be trusted on issues of national security, this ought to do the job: legislation has been proposed that would force the CIA and Pentagon to set aside nuclear proliferation and Islamic terrorist concerns while they focus on the nonexistent national security implications of the phony global warming crisis.

The measure is sponsored by two of the Senate's most infamous moonbats, Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Chuck Hagel (RINO-NE), both of whom have done their best to prevent the government from addressing actual threats to our country's security.

Rep. Edward Markey (D-MA) plans to introduce similar legislation in the House. Last year Malarkey demonstrated his concern over real national security threats by pushing a bill making it illegal to return Club Gitmo vacationers to countries that might not offer them the same royal treatment. Apparently he wants to grant the terrorists asylum and set them loose in hopes they vote Democrat.

Barking Moonbat Keith Olbermann Admits to Getting Beaten Up by Little Girls

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:28 PM

A New York Magazine profile of MSNBC's Keith Olbermann offers a clue as to how this venom-spewing leftist got so angry:

It probably won't come as much of a surprise that when Keith Olbermann was a kid, he got the tar kicked out of him on a regular basis. And not by the football team. "I got beat up by girls all the time," says Olbermann. "They literally posted a sign-up sheet and would take turns. I think that's why I've always been such a fan of Mencken's line, 'Afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted.' I've been afflicted."

OpinionJournal's take:

It's been said that a conservative is a liberal who's been mugged by reality. Apparently a liberal is someone who's been mugged by little girls.

Moderate Muslim Denounces Dems For Consorting With CAIR

Posted by Dave Blount at 2:57 PM

The mythical moderate Muslim has been located, and he doesn't think much of Rep. Joe Sestak (D-PA) for pandering to the terrorist front group CAIR.

Sestak saw fit to address a CAIR function over the weekend. Disgustingly, he went beyond excusing himself with the typical blather about "establishing a dialogue" to actually praise CAIR for its terrorist support work, and echo propaganda meant to undermine our readiness for the next 9/11:

CAIR does such important and necessary work in a difficult environment to change such perceptions and wrongs — from racial profiling and civil rights to promoting justice and mutual understanding — at a time when it is challenging to be an American Muslim and pass, for example, through an airport checkpoint.

Pennsylvania's Dem Governor Ed Rendell also came to kiss rings at the CAIR event.

CAIR was established as a Hamas front group. It has specialized in using ACLU-type tactics to undermine our terror defenses. It won't even pretend to oppose the leading terror sects Hamas and Hezbollah.

Zuhdi Jasser of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy is appalled that unscrupulous politicians would pander to the likes of CAIR:

CAIR's focus on apologetics for terrorism, victimization and minority politics is simply a distraction from their responsibility to lead the battle within the Islamic community to defeat militancy and theocracy.
As an American Muslim, I have significant concerns with CAIR and their less-than-transparent agenda. At the core, they present themselves as a representative of a faith community, but a brief review of all their materials demonstrates a heavily political agenda long on foreign and domestic policy criticism and very short on spirituality.
These politicians legitimize their faith representation and their political representation of our faith community — which they certainly do not for many Muslims. Those reformers who understand that the root cause of terrorism is political Islam will have no chance whatsoever to win the ideological battle over the mosque if the Islamists are repeatedly endorsed and empowered by our government.

He dismisses CAIR's watery condemnations of terror as "empty" and "dangerously nonspecific." Since this also perfectly describes Democrat anti-terror policy, it's hardly surprising that folks like Sestak and Rendell find common ground with CAIR.

Sheryl Crow Launching Anti-Weather Bus Crusade With Laurie David

Posted by Dave Blount at 2:30 PM

By now the global warming hoax has been thoroughly discredited, but this news has yet to reach the entertainment community. Pop star Sheryl Crow has launched a tour in a biodiesel-powered bus, preaching at university campuses about the apocalyptic perils of climate fluctuation.

At her side, whispering terrifying lies in her ear, is the militant moonbat Laurie David, considered the premier Democrat organizer in Hollyweird. David produced the film version of the Goracle's hysterical screed A Convenient Lie. Along with fellow extremist Arianna Huffington, she cofounded Americans for Fuel-Efficient Cars, which ran TV ads blaming SUV-owners for Muslim terrorism. On the topic of SUVs, David opines:

These cars should just have "pig" spray-painted on them.

Crow's new sidekick admits to "yelling at people on the highway" for driving SUVs. Like other members of the global warming priesthood, she lives in a large mansion requiring massive amounts of energy to heat and cool. She doesn't always travel by biodiesel-powered bus; more often it's by private jet, because she dislikes traveling on commercial airlines with the hoi polloi. A rogue's gallery of Democrat political candidates have benefited from her largesse, including Shrillary Rotten, Osama Obama, John "Botched Joke" Kerry, and Howard "Dr. Demento" Dean.

Sheryl Crow has fallen in with bad company. Fortunately for her, making a fool of yourself will rarely be counted against you in the entertainment world.

Pennsylvania Moonbats Open Fire on Second Amendment

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:38 PM

Pennsylvania's House Bill 760 — brought forward by Dems from Philadelphia and Pittsburgh — threatens to shoot holes in citizens' constitutional right to bear arms.

According to this draconian bill, all non-antique guns must be registered with the State Police each and every year. Cost in terms of the direct fee is $10 per year per gun. Cost in terms of hassle is enough to disarm the law-abiding populace — or so state legislators seem to hope.

Fingerprinting is required. Background checks are required. A new photograph each year is required. Carrying the registration card with the gun wherever it goes is required. Name, age, gender, Social Security number, business address, home address, telephone number, date of birth, citizenship, and any other information that "the Pennsylvania State Police may deem necessary to process the application" are required. The gun's manufacturer, model, type, caliber or gauge, and serial number are required.

If the gun is lost or stolen and you fail to notify the State Police within 48 hours, you will be regarded as a criminal. Selling the gun requires giving 48 hours advance notice. As written, the law might even require you to inform the State Police when your age changes.

Fortunately for urban criminals, they will be unaffected by all this gratuitous bureaucracy, since their guns are usually acquired by unconventional means, have the serial numbers filed off, and are unlikely to get registered no matter what tedious hoops bureauweenies force law-abiding sportsmen and collectors to jump through.

Leading Atmospheric Scientist William Gray Denies Phony Global Warming Consensus

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:13 AM

Even the lock-step libs at AP admit that emeritus professor William Gray of the atmospheric science department at Colorado State University "has become known as America's most reliable hurricane forecaster" over the past 24 years, so it should come as a relief to anyone tempted to take Al Gore's frightening ravings seriously that Professor Gray regards the Goracle as "a gross alarmist."

Here's what Gray had to say about Prince Albert at the recent National Hurricane Conference in New Orleans:

He's one of these guys that preaches the end of the world type of things. I think he's doing a great disservice and he doesn't know what he's talking about.

Gray holds that strong hurricanes have nothing to do with global warming, that ocean temperatures will be dropping over the next 5–10 years, and that the idea that human activity causes global warming is nonsense. Fortunately the UN doesn't have jurisdiction yet to have him arrested for violating the "consensus."

Once-Great Britain Succumbs to Moonbattery

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:28 AM

Another disturbing indication of just how precipitously Britain has declined comes in a study entitled "The Cost of Exclusion," which finds that Britain is being dragged down by a generation of "Neets" — young people who are not working, learning, or going anywhere, and who will be spending their lives subsisting off government handouts.

"Youth exclusion," as bureauweenies call the phenomenon, is costing taxpayers £3.65 billion a year — or more. According to Martina Milburn of the Prince's Trust:

This problem is creating a huge economic cost to society. These figures are quite conservative and the true cost is probably even larger. There is also a major cost to young people in terms of their lives. If a young person gets on to benefits and stays there they are always going to be a drain on the economy.

Cost estimates include £1 billion a year for youth crime, £18 billion in lifetime lost earnings due to educational underachievement, and £20 million a week for Jobseekers' Allowance. The cost to the world of the decline of British culture is incalculable.

This decline is evident on British streets. As Theodore Dalrymple notes:

Britain is experiencing a spate of murders that suggests a population increasingly unable, or unwilling, to control itself. A recent survey suggested that the British are now more prone to knife-fights than any other people in Europe. Guns have also become fashionable, despite — or is it because of? — stringent laws against them.

Dennis Prager touches on two of the most appalling recent examples of Britain's rapid degeneration: its contemptible unwillingness to respond appropriately to Iran kidnapping its military personnel, and the removal of the Holocaust from history classes because Muslims prefer to pretend it never happened. Prager correctly identifies the disease killing Britain as moonbattery, and reminds us that we had better learn from the example if we don't want to follow it:

If Great Britain can cease to be great in so short a time span, any country can. All you need is an elite that no longer believes in their country, that manipulates history texts to make students feel good about themselves, that prefers multiculturalism to its own culture, and that has abandoned its religious underpinnings. Sound familiar, America?

A Debate Host Dems Might Find More to Their Liking Than Fox

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:40 AM

Since Dems won't participate in any debate hosted even in part by Fox News, on the grounds that Fox doesn't limit itself to advancing their ideology, they might consider one hosted by Kink.com, a media company that comes much closer to reflecting modern liberal values. The company recently purchased San Francisco's historic State Armory and Arsenal building — a great site for no-holds-barred altercations. A face-off between Shrillary and Condi Rice might look something like this:

Shrillary Rotten and Osama Obama Boycott Fox

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:15 AM

Following the lead of the risible Breck Girl, both Shrillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Osama Obama have refused to participate in a debate because it is sponsored by Fox News, which is deemed not to toe the liberal line.

Once again Dems exploit the advantage of not being expected to behave like grownups. Since Republicans try to be reasonable, they won't refuse to participate in a debate just because it's hosted by someone other than their own cheerleading squad. So if you want a debate with both sides, you can only get it from left-leaning news media.

The idea of course is to marginalize Fox News for daring to stray from the liberal herd. Only with a monopoly on the dissemination of information do libs stand a chance of getting the public to swallow their corrosive and nihilistic ideology.

But thanks to radio, cable, and the Internet, the Dems' days of media monopoly are over, at least until they can impose their totalitarian Unfairness Doctrine. If they had any faith in their own message, they would try reaching out to those who don't agree, instead of attempting to shut us out.

A Yardstick For Measuring Treason

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:57 AM

As Nathan Hale observes, the objective of military action is not to kill the enemy, but to break his will to fight. This fundamental principle is taught at all levels of military training. In times so warped by moonbattery that treason has become politically acceptable, it provides a useful yardstick to determine who is acting in our country's interests, and who is acting in the interests of our Islamofascist enemies.

Hale gives an obvious example: setting an arbitrary date for retreating from Iraq, as advocated by Democrats. Will this undermine our terrorist enemies' will to fight? Hardly:

It seems obvious that it gives them a goal to aim for. They merely have to hang on until this date and victory is theirs. Ask any athlete which is easier — to run a known distance or to simply start running until the coach tells you to stop?

A timeline for withdrawal will strengthen al-Qaeda's resolve, while signaling to our troops that they are fighting for a cause that has already been abandoned. Determine whose will to fight is being attacked, and it is crystal clear whose side the Democrat Party has taken in the struggle between America and Islamic terrorists.

Sea Otters Perish As "Global Warming" Freezes Lakes

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:34 AM

While UN bureauweenies attempt to stoke the hysteria with laughable claims that a 1°C rise in temperature would endanger 30% of the species on Earth, an actually threatened species, the western Alaska sea otter, is in deep trouble because of the cold.

The critters have been driven by desperation to waddle and wriggle across land in search of water that isn't frozen. Those that haven't starved have been easy prey for predators.

Climate invariably fluctuates, and this sometimes causes hardship for animals. As the sea otters could tell you, warm fluctuations are preferable to cold ones like we've been having, despite the oblivious media's yapping about the global warming we can only wish would come about.

But I'm forgetting, cold is weather, and weather is caused by CO2 emissions. Let's cripple the economy and save the poor otters.

Edwards Family Forced to Share Neighborhood With Normal American

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:54 AM

Elizabeth Edwards is appalled by the existence of Monty Johnson, a "rabid, rabid Republican" who lives just across the street. The Edwards' palatial 28,000-square-foot estate, with indoor basketball court, indoor handball court, and indoor pool, sprawls upon 102 wooded acres. But Johnson's "Go Rudy Giuliani 2008" sign is only 100 feet from the entrance to the driveway.

Johnson is even said to have brandished a gun at trespassers, horrifying Elizabeth, who has never met the guy but has already resolved that she "wouldn't be nice to him."

She sniffs that his property is "slummy," and accuses him of refusing it to keep it up just to spite her snooty family. However, as Johnson explains:

I have to budget. I have to live within my means. I don't have millions of dollars to fix the place.

Johnson observes of Silky Pony, who made zillions fleecing doctors in dubious lawsuits:

I thought he was supposed to be for the poor people. But does he ever socialize with any poor people? He doesn't speak to me.

Good news for the Edwards clan: Johnson, whose family purchased the property before the Great Depression, has put it up for sale, citing excessive property taxes.

Newsweek Acknowledges Cracks in Global Warming Hoax

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:13 AM

You know the global warming hoax is running out of gas when even knee-jerk liberal Newsweek admits that not everyone is on board with the hysterical "consensus." The April 16 issue includes a surprisingly sane editorial by MIT Professor of Meteorology Richard Lindzen. A few highlights:

There is no compelling evidence that the warming trend we've seen will amount to anything close to catastrophe. What most commentators — and many scientists — seem to miss is that the only thing we can say with certainly about climate is that it changes. […] Looking back on the earth's climate history, it's apparent that there's no such thing as an optimal temperature — a climate at which everything is just right.
A warmer climate could prove to be more beneficial than the one we have now. […] There is no evidence […] that extreme weather events are increasing in any systematic way[…]
Overall, the risk of sea-level rise from global warming is less at almost any given location than that from other causes, such as tectonic motions of the earth's surface.
Many of the most alarming studies rely on long-range predictions using inherently untrustworthy climate models, similar to those that cannot accurately forecast the weather a week from now. Interpretations of these studies rarely consider that the impact of carbon on temperature goes down — not up — the more carbon accumulates in the atmosphere. […]
Is there any point in pretending that CO2 increases will be catastrophic? Or could they be modest and on balance beneficial? India has warmed during the second half of the 20th century, and agricultural output has increased greatly. Infectious diseases like malaria are a matter not so much of temperature as poverty and public-health policies (like eliminating DDT). Exposure to cold is generally found to be both more dangerous and less comfortable.
Moreover, actions taken thus far to reduce emissions have already had negative consequences without improving our ability to adapt to climate change. An emphasis on ethanol, for instance, has led to angry protests against corn-price increases in Mexico, and forest clearing and habitat destruction in Southeast Asia. Carbon caps are likely to lead to increased prices, as well as corruption associated with permit trading. (Enron was a leading lobbyist for Kyoto because it had hoped to capitalize on emissions trading.) The alleged solutions have more potential for catastrophe than the putative problem. The conclusion of the late climate scientist Roger Revelle — Al Gore's supposed mentor — is worth pondering: the evidence for global warming thus far doesn't warrant any action unless it is justifiable on grounds that have nothing to do with climate.

True enough, the action being taken on global warming has nothing to do with climate. It is a grab for money by unscrupulous characters like Gore, and a grab for power by the radical Left. Fortunately the whole foolish phenomenon has jumped the shark. Let's hope politicians get wind of the fact before passing any disastrous legislation.

Cap-and-Trade Eco-Insanity Crippling European Economies

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:22 AM

As Europe disintegrates into moonbattery, it provides the rest of the world a valuable service by showing us all what not to do. For example, its willingness to take the global warming hoax seriously has led to cap-and-trade schemes, which liberals would like to impose here, and which have been pointlessly wreaking havoc on European economies.

Even WaPo describes cap-and-trade schemes as a means to "put a price on something that's always been free: the right of a factory to emit carbon gases," and admits that "the approach has been a bureaucratic morass with a host of unexpected and costly side effects and a much smaller effect on carbon emissions than planned."

Envirokooks have driven electricity costs so high that Dutch factories are having to shut down for part of the day to conserve power, which actually reduces energy efficiency. Meanwhile, competing communist Chinese factories hum merrily along, putting Europeans out of work. In France, industrial materials are being imported from Morocco, where the absence of enviromoonbattery confers a competitive advantage to the detriment of French workers. When angry Germans complain that the costs of environmental foolishness are being passed directly to consumers, power companies shrug that imposing higher prices is the whole point.

In a rare glimpse of hope that not all of the bureauweenies who hold our fate in their meddling hands are completely insane, Paul Bledsoe of the National Commission on Energy Policy admits that "it's important to recognize that legislation to mitigate climate change is going to have significant economic costs, as well."

Now if only we could get them to admit that climate change is driven by the sun, over which they have no jurisdiction, we could all get back to the business of making a living.

Econazis Target Tikes

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:26 PM

Apparently any adult gullible enough to swallow the Great Global Warming Swindle has already swallowed it, so hoaxers are now targeting small children.

The global warming cult's Bible — An Inconvenient Truth, as revealed by the Goracle — will be coming out this week in a special soft-cover edition for readers age 10 and up. In addition to Gore's usual charts and graphs, the book features pictures of garbage dumps, strip mines, native peoples menaced by rising tides, and even a mushroom cloud. One chapter denounces the "skeptics" who refuse to accept the wise Goracle's prophesies. A Bush Administration appointee is attacked by name in large red print.

For readers too young even for Al Gore, Why Are the Ice Caps Melting? goes after kids in grades 1–3. On the cover, cute penguins are threatened by cracking ice. Inside, the kiddies learn that it is all the fault of civilization.

There are more:

Arctic Thaw: The People of the Whale in a Changing Climate teaches children age 9 and up that the Inupiaq Eskimos are in deep trouble because we're making the ice melt. Isobelle Carmody writes "Little Fur" books, "eco-fantasies" about how rotten humans are for ruining the world. The Day the Stones Walked tells the kiddies we're as doomed as the natives of Easter Island due to the nonexistent problem of deforestation. Scholastic's autumn lineup will lead off with a children's version of The Down-to-Earth Guide to Global Warming, coauthored by barking moonbat Laurie David, who produced the movie version of Gore's A Convenient Lie.

If all goes as planned, these seeds of neurosis and self-hatred will one day be harvested as votes for Democrats. If only moonbats would stick to teaching children how to put condoms on cucumbers, less damage would be done to their developing minds.

UN's Global Warming Propaganda Goes Ballistic

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:44 PM

In an attempt to advance their leftist agenda by getting people to take the global warming hoax seriously, UN bureauweenies are shrieking louder than ever.

We now learn that a temperature rise of only 1°C will put "up to 30% of the species at risk of extinction." Unless we submit to environmental totalitarianism, we will be punished with melting glaciers, hurricanes, floods, wildfires, droughts, heat waves, hunger, thirst, and even diarrhea — though thankfully hemorrhoids were not mentioned.

Wails UN climate panel chairman Rajendra Pachauri:

The poorest of the poor are going to be the worst hit!

For once a UN moonbat is correct. The poor do stand to be hardest hit by global warming hysteria.

Financial Shenanigans at Cindy Sheehan's Crawford Peace House

Posted by Dave Blount at 4:09 PM

You wouldn't expect moral rectitude from someone who would exploit her own son's death to propagandize against the country he died defending, so no one should be surprised by calls for investigations into the shady finances at Cindy Sheehan's Crawford Peace House.

Former member Sara Oliver, who now has rights to this moonbat cult's name, is threatening to sue because the Ditch Witch and her accomplices continue to operate under it. She wants the state to find out why there is only $14,700 in its bank account, despite the fortunes in donations generated by the She Hag's shameless publicity stunts.

The Crawford Peace House has lost its corporate charter, meaning that board members including Mother Moonbat herself are liable for any debts it might owe. Cofounder John Wolf hopes to regain the charter by turning in a tax report this week — nearly a year late.

Meanwhile Sheehanistas continue to infest a ditch outside of President Bush's ranch — "to save other people's children," according to the She Hag.

Thanks to Global Warming, It's Too Cold For Baseball

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:54 AM

Any baseball fans who still have the March 12 Sports Illustrated on hand have been getting a good laugh lately. SI, being owned by the left-leaning MSM conglomerate Time Warner AOL, decided in that issue to set sports aside in favor of preaching the phony gospel of global warming. Check out the cover:

si.jpg

The Marlins play in Miami, which will soon be underwater according to the Goracle's apocalyptic prophesies. But the problem baseball has been having isn't flooded stadiums — it's extreme cold. Not only fans but even players on the field have been wrapping up like mummies in an attempt to avoid frostbite. Games have been canceled due to single-digit temperatures. In Cleveland, the snow and cold have now made it impossible for the Indians to play the Mariners for three straight days.

Of course Kool-Aid–guzzlers will tell you that the cold, like all weather, is caused by global warming. Anyone misguided enough to get their science reporting from Sports Illustrated might just believe it.

Anti-Sheehan Debbie Lee Stands Up For Danny Dietz Memorial

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:59 PM

Danny Dietz, whose memorial in Littleton, Colorado is opposed by moonbats on the grounds that it depicts him with a weapon, isn't the only Navy SEAL to die heroically while defending us from terrorists. The first SEAL to perish in the Iraq theater of the war was Petty Officer Second Class Marc Alan Lee of Hood River, Oregon, who was killed after helping to rescue a fellow SEAL during a two-hour firefight with terrorists, in the course of which he fired 100 rounds.

In glaring contrast to media darling Cindy Sheehan, Lee's mother Debbie Lee honors her son's memory appropriately. She also wants to see Danny Dietz' memory honored, as she explains in this letter to the Denver Post and the city of Littleton:

Good morning! I understand that you are doing an article on the memorial statue for Danny Dietz in Littleton.
I was just informed that there are a few people in the community who are objecting to the statue honoring Danny Dietz who heroically laid down his life defending this nation. I have 2 very deep connections to this issue. First I was born in Colorado, grew up in Littleton, and have lived half of my life in Colorado. This was my neighborhood. The preschool at 5301 Lowell Blvd was started by my Mother and we lived at Lowell and Latonka. I was in the first graduating class from Goddard Middle School which is near where the Statue will be placed. The second connection is my son Marc Alan Lee was the first Navy seal to be killed in Iraq on 8-2-06. He willingly laid down his life just like Danny and all of the brave Vets who stood up to the call of duty to protect the freedoms for the citizens of Littleton and this Country. Marc was defending our rights with an MK48 a large machine gun when he died. Both of these young men are heroes who didn't use their weapons recklessly but were sent by this country to defend the attacks from the Terrorists that killed innocent people. I am appalled, devastated, and outraged that anyone would group our heroes, who earned some of the highest medals a nation could give its fallen soldiers, to criminals that killed innocent people at Columbine High School. How insensitive and cruel is that?
Do we eliminate all types of discipline just because a few misuse it? Children get cavities from food, oh my, better eliminate that. Autos kill, hhm, better get rid of that too. Children in 5th grade have sex in a classroom better eliminate schools. People are killed by illegal use of drugs, does that mean we outlaw all drugs even when they are used by doctors who are trained how to use them to save lives?
Obviously not! It is a parent's responsibility to teach a child the proper ways and times to use a weapon, see a doctor for legal drugs that can defend our body against disease when we are sick and to teach our children to think rationally and logically. As Americans our Forefathers saw the importance of the Right to bear arms to protect and defend us and it is nothing to be ashamed of or to hide!
It's not the guns of war that are dangerous it's the lack of thinking and the reactions of the paranoid that threaten our society. I just completed a 10 day tour "These Colors Don't Run" with Move America Forward that went from San Francisco to Washington DC with rallies in 25 cities to let our troops, our President and his administration know that we support them and are proud of their service to our country. I am so tired of the vocal minority who don't support our efforts in Iraq and are unaware of the major difference we are making in Iraq. Because those who support what we are doing in Iraq have been quiet and aren't as aggressive as the liberal left, the media stories reflect their opinions not the majority of America that I heard from on the caravan across America. I for one can't be quiet any longer and must make my voice heard. Our soldiers are willing to risk everything even their lives as Danny and Marc did so that we can have the freedoms we enjoy in America! As an American I am honored that the City of Littleton has chosen to place this statue honoring one of America's bravest patriots. America needs to remember the fallen and their willingness to lay down their lives for a country they loved and believed in!
Thank you for taking time to portray the truth in the story of this Brave young man who made the ultimate sacrifice and for the sacrifice his family makes every day in his absence!
A Very Proud Mother of A Hero,
Debbie Lee

Somehow I doubt the media will spend months following Debbie Lee to photo ops while revering her absolute moral authority.

Easter Bunny Banned From Rhode Island School

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:12 PM

The latest assault on the Easter Bunny has taken place in Rhode Island, where Tiverton Middle School has replaced him with "Peter Rabbit" because "Easter Bunny" sounds too Christian.

According to the school district's Superintendent William Rearick, anything that reminds people of Christianity at Easter time must be suppressed as part of "an attempt to be conscious of other people's backgrounds and traditions."

Totalitarian moonbats have the advantage when it comes to banning the Easter Bunny because he isn't taken seriously. As Bernard Healy, the Catholic Diocese of Providence, puts it:

As a Christian symbol, I would say [the Easter Bunny] is not one of those that I would go to the barricades to defend.

Maybe Healy is waiting until moonbats start banning crosses from chapels before he puts up resistance.

Unsurprisingly, the ACLU is pleased to see the Easter Bunny prohibited. Barks Steve Brown of the ACLU's Rhode Island affiliate:

Public schools should not be promoting Easter celebrations, and to the extent that the school districts try to avoid that problem they are to be commended.

Rhode Island State Rep. Richard Singleton calls suppression of the Easter Bunny "political correctness gone wild." At last it has pushed the poor rabbit to the breaking point, as can be seen in this video (on a tip from Pam).

Michigan Moonbats' Economic Solution: Free iPods For the Kids

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:38 AM

In Michigan a classic vicious cycle has emerged. The more the economy stagnates, the more poor people there are, the more liberals get elected, the higher taxes are raised, the more businesses go under or escape to less liberal locales, the more the economy stagnates. The country on the whole is doing well, whereas Michigan wallows in its own recession, with a budget deficit over $1 billion. Fortunately, bureaucrats have a solution: provide a free MP3 player to every schoolchild in the state.

Naturally taxes will have to be hiked yet again to pay for this. But that's okay — there are still a few businesses that haven't shown the initiative to get off the sinking ship known as the Great Lake State. There will be fewer, however, if Dem House speaker Andy Dillon gets his way by increasing taxes on those that operate in Michigan without having facilities there. If Dillon doesn't understand that businesses will respond to this by no longer operating in Michigan, it could be because he represents metro Detroit, where the sort of Third-World socialism normally associated with failed states in Africa has managed to take root in North America.

Dillon also wants Michigan to cover half the cost of health insurance for everyone in the state. He hasn't mentioned where the money will come from, but unless he has plans to raid Fort Knox, businesses would be well advised to get out while they can.

Following the Money in the Global Warming Hoax

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:55 AM

Moonbat activists, bureaucrats, and Supreme Court Justices have a powerful ally in their crusade to cripple our economy in the name of the global warming hoax: unscrupulous businesses that will stoop to any low to gain a competitive advantage. A case in point is Entergy Corporation, which backed the case leading to the Supremes' recent outrageous ruling that CO2 — i.e., our very breath — is a pollutant that must be regulated.

Why would a energy company want energy companies to have their kneecaps shattered by EPA bureauweenies? To destroy competition. Entergy is our second-largest generator of nuclear power, a position that is secure because envirowacko regulations have prevented any new plants from opening for the last 30 years. Nuclear plants don't produce CO2; competing coal plants do.

A cap-and-trade scheme would not only batter competitors, it would force them to buy carbon credits. Entergy recently announced it had purchased 100,000 metric tons of these credits, which are worthless except as a public relations ploy — for now. Thanks to the Supremes' shockingly irresponsible ruling, they might soon be worth a fortune.

Entergy is also in the business of selling "green power" — significantly more expensive energy generated by inefficient but politically correct means like windmills and solar panels. With enough government regulation, consumers may be forced to pay for it.

No wonder Entergy's stock jumped to a record high when the Supremes' daffy decision was announced.

Moonbat Easter Egg Hunt

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:16 AM

Easter is no reason for moonbats to pause in their denunciations of America. They have their own take on the time-honored tradition of the Easter egg hunt.

As the annual White House Easter Egg Roll takes place on the South Lawn, moonbats and their offspring will be holding a "family-friendly Easter cluster-bomb hunt" in nearby Lafayette Square. Children made the toy cluster bombs by wrapping balloons around tennis balls at a "teach-in." The real thing can "blow up and kill you," a child dutifully recites.

The lead sponsor is the Vineeta Foundation, whose Brian Hennessey explains:

We're not trying to hit kids over the head with this; we want them to have fun. We also want to bring attention to the fact that our munitions cause a lot of death and destruction to civilians, especially children.

Subtle, aren't they?

Next might come the Moonbat Fourth of July, featuring fireworks that consist of setting off M-80s wired to hamsters, to show the kiddies the awful things that happen to innocent Muslim children when they are murdered by our fascist troops in the dark of the night. Then follows Moonbat Halloween, with children dressed in American military uniforms demanding "air strike or treat!" They might do a Moonbat Thanksgiving, by killing the turkey right there on the table to remind the young'uns that meat is murder. Ward Churchill would appreciate a Moonbat Christmas, where instead of toys kids receive blankets infected with smallpox, in honor of accusations that have been made regarding Indians. The possibilities are endless.

Moonbats Oppose Statue of Fallen Hero Danny Dietz

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:42 AM

Navy SEAL hero Danny Dietz laid down his life for us in the allegedly nonexistent Global War on Terror on June 28, 2005, during an attack by Taliban and al-Qaeda forces in Afghanistan. His citation for the Navy Cross he was awarded:

For extraordinary heroism in actions against the enemy while serving in a four-man Special Reconnaissance element with SEAL Delivery Vehicle Team ONE, Naval Special Warfare Task unit, Afghanistan from 27 to 28 June 2005. Petty Officer Dietz demonstrated extraordinary heroism in the face of grave danger in the vicinity of Asadabad, Konar Province, Afghanistan. Operating in the middle of an enemy-controlled area, in extremely rugged terrain, his Special Reconnaissance element was tasked with locating a high-level Anti-Coalition Militia leader, in support of a follow-on direct action mission to disrupt enemy activity. On 28 June 2005, the element was spotted by Anti-Coalition Militia sympathizers, who immediately revealed their position to the militia fighters. As a result, the element directly encountered the enemy. Demonstrating exceptional resolve and fully understanding the gravity of the situation and his responsibility to his teammates, Petty Officer Dietz fought valiantly against the numerically superior and positionally advantaged enemy force. Remaining behind in a hailstorm of enemy fire, Petty Officer Dietz was wounded by enemy fire. Despite his injuries, he bravely fought on, valiantly defending his teammates and himself in a harrowing gunfight, until he was mortally wounded. By his undaunted courage in the face of heavy enemy fire, and absolute devotion to his teammates, Petty Officer Dietz will long be remembered for the role he played in the Global War on Terrorism. Petty Officer Dietz' courageous and selfless heroism, exceptional professional skill, and utmost devotion to duty reflected great credit upon him and were in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service. He gallantly gave his life for the cause of freedom.

Understandably, those who appreciate Dietz' sacrifice want to honor him with a privately financed statue in his hometown, Littleton, Colorado. The planned statue is based on the last picture taken of Dietz before he died fighting terrorists:

danny_dietz_statue.jpg

It will stand in Berry Park, a few blocks away from the home in which he grew up and not far from the elementary schools Dietz attended, serving as an inspiration for children. Says Dan Dietz, Sr.:

I want them to believe in their country. I think there should be more of this for our heroes who have lost their life.

Moonbats, naturally, are appalled. They object on the grounds that showing a hero with a weapon glorifies violence. Squeals "peacenik" Ann Levy of Denver:

They should be putting up a peace dove instead. The question is do we stand for peace or do we stand for war?

A better question would be: Are we worthy of the sacrifices of people like Danny Dietz?

Apparently Littleton is. Plans to erect the statue are moving forward, moonbattery be damned. Scheduled unveiling is July 4.

Critical Mass Moonbats Menace Family

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:11 PM

Critical Mass is a mass bike ride held on a monthly basis, the apparent intent of which is to disrupt traffic and promote politically correct, pre-automotive modes of transportation. Traffic laws are pointedly ignored.

The first Critical Mass took place 15 years ago in San Francisco, which is where Susan Ferrando and her family recently suffered the misfortune of encountering this antisocial horde of moonbats on wheels.

She'd come to town from Redwood City with her husband, their two children, and three preteens to celebrate her daughter's 11th birthday. At about 9 PM their minivan was surrounded by hundreds of Critical Mass cyclists. Having boxed in the car, the moonbats pounded on the windows, terrifying the children inside.

But this wasn't enough: one of the maniacs actually threw his bike at the van, shattering the rear window, as Ferrando repeatedly screamed, "There are children in this car!"

Fortunately they had a cell phone and were rescued by the police soon after dialing 911. The moonbats claimed the minivan had bumped the tire of one of the bicycles, but the alleged victim, after admitting he wasn't hurt, refused to give his name or any other information and with a few curses rode away on his bike. Damage to the van was estimated at $5,300.

Sergeant Ed Callejas, lead cop on the scene, had encountered Critical Mass moonbats before, but had yet to see them so brazen in their sociopathic moonbattery:

I've seen the bikes swarm cars, and scratch them as they go by. I've seen guys get out of their cars and start fighting with the bikers, but if you had seen the faces on those little girls in tears. All I could do was apologize for what they had been through.

Callejas admits that the city barely even attempts to restrain the bikers' anarchistic behavior.

We sit there and they just go right through the red lights. What else can we do? Arrest one rider while 500 keep going?

Well, it would be a start, since I suppose opening up with a machine gun isn't a viable option. Instead the moonbats will be allowed to run riot until someone gets killed for looking like a normal person from suburbia or for raping Gaia by driving an automobile.

Illegal Immigration Moonbattery Kills Two Teenagers

Posted by Dave Blount at 5:35 PM

An illegal immigrant named Alfredo Ramos recently killed two teenage girls while driving drunk in Virginia Beach. This common occurrence is worth noting because Ramos had already been arrested for drunk driving and twice for public intoxication. Yet not only was he not sent back to his own country, he never even served jail time.

As WAVY observes:

There seems to be a crack in the system.

The system is cracked all right — although stark raving mad might be a more accurate diagnosis. Spokesman Jimmy Barnes of the Virginia Beach Police notes that it could be considered "a violation of their civil rights" even to ask criminals if they are illegal aliens.

Once again, an establishment rotten with moonbattery sides with the criminals against the law-abiding citizens. As a result, two girls are dead.

Mars Warming Several Times Faster Than Earth

Posted by Dave Blount at 5:13 PM

It's a lousy break that we're all doomed to perish in a global warming apocalypse because people won't follow Al Gore's wild-eyed sermons to their natural conclusion and create a world government empowered to legislate an end to human activity. But look at the bright side: at least we don't live on Mars, where the global warming that has been observed throughout the solar system is proceeding much faster than on Earth.

The reason the ice on the Martian south pole keeps retreating is that surface air temperatures have increased by 1.17°F from the 1970s through 1990s. On Earth, average temperature has increased by a paltry 1.33°F over the last century.

Jimmy the Dhimmi Approves Pelousy's Pratfall

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:03 PM

Nancy Pelosi's ill-conceived attempt to wrest control of foreign policy from the White House by traveling to Syria to cuddle with the terror-exporting dictator Baby Assad sure was a flop. Even the liberal WaPo is referring to it as Pelousy's "Pratfall in Damascus":

As any diplomat with knowledge of the region could have told Ms. Pelosi, Mr. Assad is a corrupt thug whose overriding priority at the moment is not peace with Israel but heading off U.N. charges that he orchestrated the murder of former Lebanese prime minister Rafiq al-Hariri. The really striking development here is the attempt by a Democratic congressional leader to substitute her own foreign policy for that of a sitting Republican president. Two weeks ago Ms. Pelosi rammed legislation through the House of Representatives that would strip Mr. Bush of his authority as commander in chief to manage troop movements in Iraq. Now she is attempting to introduce a new Middle East policy that directly conflicts with that of the president. We have found much to criticize in Mr. Bush's military strategy and regional diplomacy. But Ms. Pelosi's attempt to establish a shadow presidency is not only counterproductive, it is foolish.

To get an idea of just how far Damascus Nancy has strayed from behavior befitting a Speaker of the House, the very personification of treasonous moonbattery approves of her mission.

Bleats Jimmy "the Dhimmi" Carter:

I was glad that she went. When there is a crisis, the best way to help resolve the crisis is to deal with the people who are instrumental in the problem.

Carter whines that he wanted to go kiss Assad's ring too, but the White House ordered him not to. This must have been a hard blow to Carter's gargantuan ego. At least he can console himself that he hasn't been shot for treason, as he might have been in more sensible times.

In Carter's corner is Syrian cabinet minister Buthayna Sha'ban, who as an agent of a hostile regime unsurprisingly agrees that Pelousy's attempt to hamstring our foreign policy was a good idea.

Pelousy Had Better Not Give Up Her Day Job

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:45 AM

San Franfreakshow Representative and unelected Foreign Minister Nancy Pelosi's new career in international diplomacy is off to a rocky start.

Ignoring pleas from the people who were actually elected to conduct our foreign policy, Pelousy ventured to the Middle East on a propaganda junket meant to undermine the White House. Typically, she played into the hands of the terrorist regimes waging proxy war against us in Iraq and elsewhere.

Among the sweet nothings she whispered into the ear of hostile dictator Bashar al-Assad was news that Israel wants to reopen peace talks. Like most of what gushes at disconcerting speed from Pelosi's tireless mouth, this isn't quite true. What Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert actually said, according to an official statement, is that Syria's sincerity regarding making peace with Israel would be judged by its willingness to

cease its support of terror, cease its sponsoring of the Hamas and Islamic Jihad organizations, refrain from providing weapons to Hizb'allah and bringing about the destabilizing of Lebanon, cease its support of terror in Iraq, and relinquish the strategic ties it is building with the extremist regime in Iran.

Maybe Damascus Nancy should stick to finding new ways to legislate surrender and leave the diplomacy in Condi Rice's much abler hands.

Life in Prison: A Dream Come True

Dem Peter Welch: Impose Enviromoonbattery on the Military

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:00 AM

The Goracle's carbon offset swindle — whereby he sells eco-indulgences to energy hogs like himself — will become even more profitable if Rep. Peter Welch (D-VT) has his way. Welch has introduced legislation to force the military to purchase carbon offsets for the energy it uses.

From a liberal standpoint, it's an excellent idea. It will both cripple the military and shoot taxes through the stratosphere. Rivers of our money will flow into the pockets of shady global warming hoaxers like Gore who like trial lawyers are invariably aligned with the Left. The climate won't be affected, but the Weather Channel is sure to tell us otherwise.

Once again, the environmental agenda is clear: force us to pay them to paralyze society.

Dems Decree: The War That Must Not Be Won Must Not Be Named

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:01 PM

Not only will the cancerous abomination known as the Democrat Party not permit us to win the War on Terror, it won't even permit us to refer to it by name.

The phrase "global war on terror" has been banished from the 2008 defense budget by the treasonous clowns who now control Congress. Likewise, the military expression "the long war" is forbidden. Dems have had enough fighting back against terrorists and insist we now turn our clocks back to September 10, 2001.

"There was no political intent in doing this," lied a Democrat aide who lacked the courage to give his/her/its name. Republicans were not consulted about the change.

Like the media, Dems would like us to pretend that the terrorists we are fighting in Iraq have nothing to do with the global war against Western Civilization being waged by radical Islam. They are laying the groundwork for surrender to an enemy that is sworn to the obliteration of our civilization — an enemy that has already struck devastating blows against our capital and our largest city.

The war will continue, even if Democrats won't let us name it, win it, or effectively fight it. The question is whether the struggle takes place on the enemy's ground, or ours.



Bleeding Heart Diet Plan

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:20 PM

If you're on a diet, the video below might help — by twisting your stomach into knots so tight that putting food down there would be out of the question. It's a short clip from Court TV summarizing the story of Esteban Carpio, who was being questioned by police about murdering an old lady in Providence when he grabbed the gun of officer Jim Allen and shot him in the face at point-blank range.

As Allen died, Carpio jumped out a third-floor window and tried to escape. Police caught up with him within a few blocks.

When Carpio next appeared in court, he was wearing one of those Hannibal Lecter masks to keep him from spitting and biting — very prudent considering that he had just murdered a police officer. Unsurprisingly, his face had suffered some bruising during his escape and subsequent recapture. Carpio was sentenced to a lifetime of loafing and watching TV at the taxpayers' expense.

The horror comes from Court TV's point of view. Astoundingly, they adamantly take the side of this vicious murderer, and demand viewers do the same. An array of moonbats including the verminous Ron Kuby come forward to whimper that the poor misunderstood fellow was not treated with the reverence he deserves. You have to see it to believe it:

Hostage Crisis Reveals British Bureaucrats Still Capable of Outrage

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:04 AM

Their propaganda objectives having been accomplished, the Muslim fanatics running Iran appear ready to release the 15 military hostages Britain allowed them to kidnap. British bureauweenies are outraged by the incident. Chides Health Secretary Patricia Hewitt:

It was deplorable that the woman hostage should be shown smoking. This sends completely the wrong message to our young people.

Fortunately this horrible message is likely to be drowned out by the much louder one broadcast to the world by the latest intolerable example of Islamic aggression and Western passivity.

Military Billed For Moonbat Mayhem

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:08 AM

Last month some particularly despicable moonbats saw our troops off to battle at the Port of Tacoma by taunting the Stryker Brigade and police protecting conveys headed to Iraq. The mother of a soldier in Tacoma had this to say about the vermin:

My son was one of the Stryker soldiers who was moving the equipment to the port that night.
These people are protesting the shipment of Strykers. Strykers are what keep our infantrymen alive in Iraq. They are agile, strong, and the newest ones have very accurate firepower. Once again, the moonbats say they support our troops, but not the war. They show it by insulting the troops' intelligence, calling their NCOs names, and telling them that they will die for nothing. Nice. I personally like to tell my son that he will come home alive and we will be reunited. These protesters sounded more like spoiled, self-centered, obnoxious brats to me. Yet, at the end of the line, there stand our troops. They are carrying the weight of the free world on their shoulders and they get to hear this mindless drivel before they deploy.
The last big protest was at the Port of Olympia last year. The moonbats did damage to a fence around a yard that protects military equipment. The Strykers they were protesting that day were Strykers that were equipped with medical intervention equipment. The protesters were marching against medical supplies that our soldiers need desperately, and once again the very equipment that keeps our soldiers alive. It seems that there are two populations of people who hate Strykers: moonbats and insurgents.

Here's video of Tacoma moonbats demonstrating their support for the troops:

Policing 12 days of this lunacy cost Tacoma $500,000. But local taxpayers don't need to worry — because the bill is being passed along to the military.

At least the troops coming home from Vietnam didn't get fined for being spat on.

American University Campus Devolves Toward the Jungle

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:03 AM

Universities were once the epitome of civilization, places that allowed the development of thought and the free exchange of ideas. Now, thanks to moonbattery, they are degenerating into savagery.

When presidential adviser Karl Rove came to the campus of American University in Washington last night to talk to the College Republicans, his car was set upon by rock-throwing barbarians, one of whom laid down in front of Rove's car to prevent him from escaping. Here's video of the sort of education tens of thousands of dollars a year buys these days:

Bigoted Anti-Christian Moonbattery Perverts Terror Preparations

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:55 PM

If there were to be a terror attack on an American school, what would be the most likely scenario? Never mind Beslan: According to officials, the attackers would not be Muslim fanatics but a monstrous enemy that strikes much deeper fear into the hearts of liberal bureauweenies: conservative Christians.

Police, faculty and staff wisely drilled in preparation for a terror attack at the Burlington Township High School in New Jersey. Not so wisely, they ignored our actual enemies and perverted the whole affair into a propaganda stunt denigrating Christians. In the drill, the school is attacked by maniacal gunmen:

Two Burlington Township police detectives portrayed the gunmen. Investigators described them as members of a right-wing fundamentalist group called the "New Crusaders" who don't believe in separation of church and state. The mock gunmen went to the school seeking justice because the daughter of one had been expelled for praying before class.

As Superintendent Chris Manno explains:

We need to practice under conditions as real as possible in order to evaluate our procedures and plans so that they're as effective as possible.

After all, the wise Rosie O'Donnell did say that "radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam."

Even Trees Cause Global Warming

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:06 AM

By now you've probably noticed that everything humans and even animals do causes global warming. But it turns out that trees cause global warming too.

True, trees absorb the suddenly poisonous substance CO2. But their leaves also soak up sunlight, which is later released as heat. According to Stanford University atmospheric scientist Ken Caldeira:

Forests do store carbon, and as a result, the planet initially cools a little — maybe tenths of degrees. But over the long term, trees' heat absorption warms things up more.

Caldeira and colleagues created a computer simulation indicating that if most land areas in northern latitudes were covered with forests, the planet would be 6° warmer. This means that the token trees being planted as part of carbon offset swindles might later be cut down as part of future carbon offset swindles.

But then, computer models can be used to prove pretty much anything where climate is concerned. No doubt a capable scientist could prove it will snow in Egypt tomorrow if there were a government grant in it for him. The point once again is that scientists don't really know what causes climate fluctuation.

If you have trees in your yard, enjoy them while you can. The Supreme Court may issue a ruling against them at any moment.

Global Warming Dupes Target Barbecues

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:07 AM

There aren't many things we won't be asked to sacrifice in the name of the discredited yet persisting hoax known as global warming. In Belgium, bureauweenies are now taxing barbecues on the grounds that like everything else associated with the activities of humans and other animals, barbecues produce CO2. Firing up your Belgian barbie will cost a draconian €20.

Compliance will be monitored using helicopters with thermal sensors. Yes, I'm serious. Presumably they will be pixie-dust–powered helicopters that don't produce any CO2.

Supreme Court Rules Against Breathing

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:43 PM

In an ominous indication that our civilization is preparing to plunge into a self-induced decline, the Supreme Court is now legislating environmental fanaticism from the bench, with cavalier disregard for potentially devastating economic consequences.

In a 5-4 ruling, the Supremes decided that CO2 — you know, that stuff that comes out of you when you breathe — is an air pollutant subject to federal regulation under the Clean Air Act.

As if fancying themselves to be scientists, the court's majority repeated the familiar dubious theory about CO2 causing the climate to warm as justification for granting potentially totalitarian power over every aspect of our existence to moonbat bureaucrats for the sake of addressing a problem that exists mainly in the fevered imaginations of political fanatics.

According to the court, the EPA must now prove that greenhouse gases do not contribute to climate change, or else impose new regulations that would probably cripple the automotive industry. Since proving a negative in this sort of context is virtually impossible, this is not the time to buy stock in GM.

In his dissent, Chief Justice Roberts observed that even if the global warming hoax were real, it would be up to elected authorities and not an authoritarian court to determine how it should be addressed.

Relax: We've Passed the Tipping Point

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:13 PM

Great news: according to Achim Steiner, who screeches and bleats on behalf of the politically driven UN Environment Program, "We've passed the tipping point" on the imaginary crisis known as global warming. This must mean that it's too late to save the planet anyway, so moonbats can stop screaming about their apocalyptic fantasies.

Unfortunately, the screaming continues nonetheless. The UN finds itself with no reason to moderate its hysterical rhetoric, since no matter what they say, liberals will believe them and conservatives will not. Consequently, the hyperbole has gone into algoresque overdrive.

According to the breathless Steiner, the fact that humans and our activities generate CO2 will cause "a potentially catastrophic set of developments," — which might include the melting of the Himalayan glaciers by the 2030s, starving Africans, heat waves, damaged coral, rising sea levels, drought, locust swarms, seas turning to blood, poisonous toads raining down from the skies, the dead rising to feed on the flesh of the living, and finally Al Gore's head exploding, opening a wormhole into a nightmare dimension that will swallow reality and doom our souls to everlasting hell.

On the bright side, the UN comes close to admitting that warmer weather would actually benefit agriculture.

British Police Terrorize Child For Using the Word "Gay"

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:13 AM

The UK may not be up to doing anything about Iran kidnapping its military personnel, but when it comes to serious crimes, the British lion remembers how to roar. Two Cheshire police officers were sent to pound on George Rawlinson's door after the 11-year-old was found to have called a 10-year-old classmate "gay."

The word was used, as it often is among kids, as a generic term of disapproval that has nothing to do with homosexuality. But British authorities aren't about to let children fail to display reverence for all things homosexual. The incident has been formally recorded as a crime.

Observed George's dad, Alan Rawlinson:

We are law-abiding citizens who have paid taxes all our lives. I've constantly contacted police about break-ins at my business and never get a suitable response. George was really upset, he thought he was going to be locked up. This just seemed like a huge waste of resources for something so trivial.

But at least George wasn't actually thrown in jail, which is what happened to 14-year-old Codie Scott when she was arrested for racism after complaining that she couldn't get involved in a class discussion because so few of the students speak English.

Madeline Albright Is Still All Wrong

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:47 AM

Madeline Albright has taken the latest Iranian hostage crisis as an opportunity to reinforce the lesson taught so explicitly by Jimmy Carter: that liberals have no clue how to deal with Iran and cannot be trusted in positions of authority.

Appearing on CNN the other day, Allwrong blathered about the useless UN and blamed the entire situation predictably enough on America. She dismissed observations that Iran is just taking advantage of the weakness that we signal by indulging in obsequious appeasement as "hyperbole," and denounced "all the saber-rattling" of those who would actually do something about Iran's outrageous and unanswered acts of war. Echoing noted foreign policy analyst Rosie O'Donnell, Halfbright warned about letting this escalate into the sort of war where we actually fight back.

Although I appreciate CNN reminding everyone how disastrous it would be to let Dems back into the White House, Hot Air is right to wonder,

Goracle's Propaganda Guides Moonbat Judge

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:18 AM

Evidence accrues that global warming may be a threat to civilization after all, even if it is a hoax. In San Franfreakshow, U.S. District Judge Jeffrey White has given the green light to a lawsuit filed against the government by envirowackos to prevent American companies from developing energy resources even overseas, on the grounds that it might contribute to the imaginary menace.

Propaganda has blurred the lines between science and fiction to the extent that the judge actually referred to Al Gore's self-serving propaganda epic A Convenient Lie in his ruling. Targeted to have their kneecaps broken for offences against Gaia are the Overseas Private Investment Corp. and the Export-Import Bank of the United States, which insure billions of dollars of American investor's money in foreign energy projects. According to White, overseas projects must be approved by the same domestic bureauweenies who have strangled the nuclear power industry and prevented the building of new oil refineries.

The good news is the world will move forward even if America doesn't lead it. Authoritarian China can take the helm while moonbat judges rule us back into the Stone Age.

British Schools Drop Holocaust to Placate Muslims

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:02 PM

As political correctness and dhimmitude continue to gnaw away at the pitiable remnants of a once-great empire, the term Great Britain is becoming an oxymoron. Even as the Muslim fanatics running Iran kidnap British military personnel with impunity, British schools are dropping the Holocaust from history classes, for fear of annoying Muslims who prefer to pretend it never happened.

Also on the chopping block are the Crusades, because teachers dread saying anything that might counter the incendiary propaganda being preached at the terrorist incubation centers known as mosques.

Moonbat Bureaucrats Target Leaf Blowers

The global warming hoax has produced a few winners — such as Al Gore, who has exploited it to generate fame and fortune — and a lot of losers, including landscapers in New York's Westchester County, where moonbat bureaucrats are considering a measure to force people to use low-emission leaf blowers.

Landscapers would have to certify that their leaf blowers comply with new standards to get their licenses. This will tilt the playing field in favor of unlicensed landscapers. Buying new leaf blowers to appease the bureauweenies will cost $500 apiece.

Giant Gasbag to Take Part in Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:51 AM

In today's April 1 news, officials have announced that this year's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade will feature an Al Gore balloon.

Gore insists that the balloon be filled with CO2 instead of helium for political reasons. When informed that CO2 is heavier than air, he reacted sharply:

That's just nonsense from climate deniers and skeptics, everybody knows that CO2 floats around in our atmosphere, they measure it on the summit of the Mauna Loa observatory in Hawaii. I've been there, I've seen it. How do you think it got up there if it was heavier than air! There's consensus on this, the debate is OVER.

The giant gasbag will be shuttled along the parade route atop a fleet of 10 Hummers.
