How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi

First 100 Days: A Tale of Two Prisoners

With Resident Peron Jr. Jr.'s first 100 days down the shitter, along with yet another pathetic excuse for a press conference, it's time for OMV to issue its evaluation of the First TelePrompter's performance.

Grade: F

Shocked you must be.

There are of course the standard reasons: unprecedented wasteful spending disguising a brutal usurpation of power, failing to bring warrantless wire tapping to an end, his kowtowing to king Abdullah, taking Kennedy's dog when he promised to adopt a shelter dog (now his daughters have a more concrete lesson in the Obama family philosophy: Promises are made to be broken, but it doesn't matter as long as the dog is cute)...the list is too long and too pathetic to display in full.

All of the above we of course expected to happen. So what is at the heart of my F for the First Liar? Two prisoners: Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and Gilad Shalit.



Suu Kyi was to be released from twelve years of house arrest last year, but is still incarcerated against her will, and against international law. Gilad Shalit, kidnapped also in violation of international law by Hamas, is facing the end of his third year in captivity this June. There has been no statement from the Resident, or his Secretary of State on the fates of either of these prisoners.

As stated by a writer for the South Asia Analysis Group:

The bulging Chinese purse at a time when the rest of the world is facing a cash flow problem spoke repeatedly during Mrs. Clinton's visit. Good-bye to the Dalai Lama and Aung San Suu Kyi, Hail Hu Jintao----- that is the message from the Obama administration .

And while Secretary Clinton makes no apologies for backpeddling and easing the standards by which Hamas can join in a unity government with its anti-Israel ideologue counterparts, Fatah, there was never any statement that Shalit's unconditional release was part of the deal. To my knowledge there has not even been a response from Clinton to Representative Shelley Berkely's letter demanding, in part, that any aid to Gaza be tied to Shalit's release.

Both Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and Corporal (now Staff Sgt...) Gilad Shalit are, at least for now, non-factors to the Resident's administration, and his toadies, including Clinton (I have no doubt this status will continue). But, as we all know, the First Fascist wants Gitmo closed by January with prisoners being released on our streets. In doing so the man who is spanning the globe on a great apology tour is giving the finger to two people who committed no crime, but are the victims of illegal incarcerations, while staunchly defending prisoners who have yet to face trial, (and should before they are released if they are now protected by the Constitution as ruled by the Supreme Court last year), simply as a political stunt; all the while potentially jeopardizing the national security of the United States.

Resident, Grade: F.

Madame Secretary: D-

Let the calls for IMPEACHMENT begin.

Yom Ha Atzma'ut: Am Yisrael Chai!


Sixty-one years ago, Israel declared its independence with the following words:
The Land of Israel was the birthplace of the Jewish people. Here their spiritual, religious and political identity was shaped. Here they first attained to statehood, created cultural values of national and universal significance and gave to the world the eternal Book of Books.

After being forcibly exiled from their land, the people kept faith with it throughout their Dispersion and never ceased to pray and hope for their return to it and for the restoration in it of their political freedom.

Impelled by this historic and traditional attachment, Jews strove in every successive generation to re-establish themselves in their ancient homeland. In recent decades they returned in their masses. Pioneers, ma'pilim [(Hebrew) - immigrants coming to Eretz-Israel in defiance of restrictive legislation] and defenders, they made deserts bloom, revived the Hebrew language, built villages and towns, and created a thriving community controlling its own economy and culture, loving peace but knowing how to defend itself, bringing the blessings of progress to all the country's inhabitants, and aspiring towards independent nationhood.

In the year 5657 (1897), at the summons of the spiritual father of the Jewish State, Theodore Herzl, the First Zionist Congress convened and proclaimed the right of the Jewish people to national rebirth in its own country.

This right was recognized in the Balfour Declaration of the 2nd November, 1917, and re-affirmed in the Mandate of the League of Nations which, in particular, gave international sanction to the historic connection between the Jewish people and Eretz-Israel and to the right of the Jewish people to rebuild its National Home.

The catastrophe which recently befell the Jewish people - the massacre of millions of Jews in Europe - was another clear demonstration of the urgency of solving the problem of its homelessness by re-establishing in Eretz-Israel the Jewish State, which would open the gates of the homeland wide to every Jew and confer upon the Jewish people the status of a fully privileged member of the comity of nations.

Survivors of the Nazi holocaust in Europe, as well as Jews from other parts of the world, continued to migrate to Eretz-Israel, undaunted by difficulties, restrictions and dangers, and never ceased to assert their right to a life of dignity, freedom and honest toil in their national homeland.

In the Second World War, the Jewish community of this country contributed its full share to the struggle of the freedom- and peace-loving nations against the forces of Nazi wickedness and, by the blood of its soldiers and its war effort, gained the right to be reckoned among the peoples who founded the United Nations.

On the 29th November, 1947, the United Nations General Assembly passed a resolution calling for the establishment of a Jewish State in Eretz-Israel; the General Assembly required the inhabitants of Eretz-Israel to take such steps as were necessary on their part for the implementation of that resolution. This recognition by the United Nations of the right of the Jewish people to establish their State is irrevocable.

This right is the natural right of the Jewish people to be masters of their own fate, like all other nations, in their own sovereign State.

ACCORDINGLY WE, MEMBERS OF THE PEOPLE'S COUNCIL, REPRESENTATIVES OF THE JEWISH COMMUNITY OF ERETZ-ISRAEL AND OF THE ZIONIST MOVEMENT, ARE HERE ASSEMBLED ON THE DAY OF THE TERMINATION OF THE BRITISH MANDATE OVER ERETZ-ISRAEL AND, BY VIRTUE OF OUR NATURAL AND HISTORIC RIGHT AND ON THE STRENGTH OF THE RESOLUTION OF THE UNITED NATIONS GENERAL ASSEMBLY, HEREBY DECLARE THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A JEWISH STATE IN ERETZ-ISRAEL, TO BE KNOWN AS THE STATE OF ISRAEL.

WE DECLARE that, with effect from the moment of the termination of the Mandate being tonight, the eve of Sabbath, the 6th Iyar, 5708 (15th May, 1948), until the establishment of the elected, regular authorities of the State in accordance with the Constitution which shall be adopted by the Elected Constituent Assembly not later than the 1st October 1948, the People's Council shall act as a Provisional Council of State, and its executive organ, the People's Administration, shall be the Provisional Government of the Jewish State, to be called "Israel".

THE STATE OF ISRAEL will be open for Jewish immigration and for the Ingathering of the Exiles; it will foster the development of the country for the benefit of all its inhabitants; it will be based on freedom, justice and peace as envisaged by the prophets of Israel; it will ensure complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion, race or sex; it will guarantee freedom of religion, conscience, language, education and culture; it will safeguard the Holy Places of all religions; and it will be faithful to the principles of the Charter of the United Nations.

THE STATE OF ISRAEL is prepared to cooperate with the agencies and representatives of the United Nations in implementing the resolution of the General Assembly of the 29th November, 1947, and will take steps to bring about the economic union of the whole of Eretz-Israel.

WE APPEAL to the United Nations to assist the Jewish people in the building-up of its State and to receive the State of Israel into the comity of nations.

WE APPEAL - in the very midst of the onslaught launched against us now for months - to the Arab inhabitants of the State of Israel to preserve peace and participate in the upbuilding of the State on the basis of full and equal citizenship and due representation in all its provisional and permanent institutions.

WE EXTEND our hand to all neighbouring states and their peoples in an offer of peace and good neighbourliness, and appeal to them to establish bonds of cooperation and mutual help with the sovereign Jewish people settled in its own land. The State of Israel is prepared to do its share in a common effort for the advancement of the entire Middle East.

WE APPEAL to the Jewish people throughout the Diaspora to rally round the Jews of Eretz-Israel in the tasks of immigration and upbuilding and to stand by them in the great struggle for the realization of the age-old dream - the redemption of Israel.

PLACING OUR TRUST IN THE "ROCK OF ISRAEL", WE AFFIX OUR SIGNATURES TO THIS PROCLAMATION AT THIS SESSION OF THE PROVISIONAL COUNCIL OF STATE, ON THE SOIL OF THE HOMELAND, IN THE CITY OF TEL-AVIV, ON THIS SABBATH EVE, THE 5TH DAY OF IYAR, 5708 (14TH MAY,1948).

Today on Yom Ha-Atzma'ut we remind the world why Israel is here. For those who see no purpose in the existence of Israel, or see Israel as racist, Daniel Gordis reminds us why Israel is important, why Israel matters, and the nature of her purpose. In the minds of some non-Jews this may be completely self-serving. If so I really don't give a crap. No doubt there will be some who will say that once again I am using the Holocaust to emotionally blackmail readers. They know who they are, and they can go fuck themselves.

Read the Gordis essay and take from it what you will. Am Yisrael Chai!

More Pennsylvania Waffles

So Arlen "Magic Bullet" Specter is switching parties. Not a surprise really considering how much money George Soros has been pumping up his rear lately. I assume that Olympia Snowe will be next, just as an insurance policy since Al Frankin can't seem to get his seat at the table. The Democraps will be one seat away from a filibuster proof majority which means that any possible hope for a Congressional check against the Emperor will have been swept away.

And guess who's taking credit for it? Joe Gaffing Plugs Biden of course. It was the money asswipe.

I think the Repelican Party is just as worthless as the Democraps, but at least there could have been some kind of barrier. Now it's looking like that is fading away.

Does this really change anything? Not really. We were fucked yesterday. We are fucked today, and we will be fucked tomorrow.

Keep sending those emails and making phone calls to your representatives. It's really helping out a lot. And of course, keep sending out those press releases 'cause that's doing a lot of good.

Gosh, it sure would be nice if there was a group bringing the independents and centrists together...but folks would rather keep banging their heads against the wall. High five!

Yom Ha Zikaron


Today is Yom Ha Zikron, Israel's day to remember her war dead. There are many, from too many wars. The way things are shaping up, another is on its way, and Israel may not survive it.
In the wake of the destruction of the Second Temple and the sacking of Jerusalem by the Romans, Jewish rebels occupied the winter palace of King Herod atop a plateau alongside the Dead Sea called Masada. For three years this band hurled dung on the Roman camps below, and harassed the slaves who steadily built a ramp up the mountain's side.

When at last the Romans were able to lay siege to the fortress the Jews decided to take their lives rather than be enslaved. Contrary to many who believe this was a mass suicide, only one person actually killed themselves. Lots were drawn. Ten men were selected to take the lives of the people. The ten were killed until only one was left, who took his own life, thus sparing the majority from committing the sins of cold blooded murder and suicide.

Today's Israeli soldiers, upon completion of basic training, have their swearing-in ceremony atop Masada, taking the oath that, "Masada shall not fall again."

It is the hope of every generation that no longer will enemies rise up against us. But today Israel is being pressured into committing national suicide to the pleasure of the Resident. More is at stake in Israel's survival than most people realize. If Masada falls, I do not care to speculate what the future holds.

Turkey, With A Side of Lebanese Hash

DEBKAfile reports the following:
DEBKAfile quotes senior Israeli military circles as staggered by the discovery that US president Barack Obama had approved a large Turkish arms sale to the Lebanese army, including the services of Turkish military instructors. This was taken as further proof that the US president is deaf to Israel's immediate security concerns. Lebanese president Gen. Michel Suleiman has more than once threatened neighboring Israel.

When he signed the arms deal in Ankara Tuesday, April 21, he once again pledged publicly to place the Lebanese army at the disposal of the Shiite terrorist Hizballah in any confrontation with Israel.

If that happened, said one Israeli source, Israel could find itself under attack not just by Hizballah as in the past, but by a Lebanese army, well trained and armed by Turkey. He noted that more than 50 percent of Lebanon's fighting manpower are Shiites loyal to Hizballah.

The conviction is growing in Jerusalem that the US president endorsed the transaction as a means of breaking up the long-standing military pact between Israel and Turkey, because it interferes with his Middle East objectives.

Our sources note that neither Washington nor Ankara bothered to inform Israel of the transaction or its scope. After meeting Turkish president Abdullah Gul, Suleiman at the head of a large Lebanese military delegation signed the contracts for the sale and declared with deep satisfaction:

"We reviewed the new [US] policies towards the region in the light of President Obama's recent visit to Turkey."

This comes in conjunction with the announcement that Turkey will be conducting 3 day joint maneuvers with Syria beginning today. Isn't that special? This is the first time a NATO member has engaged in joint maneuvers with an Arab army, and it is quite clear that this is part of a U.S. sanctioned troika between Turkey (once a strategic partner with Israel), Lebanon, and Syria. Let's not leave Iran and Hizbollah out of the mix. And where was Madame Secretary during all this? Beirut. How nice?

The big question is, when is Netanyahu going to realize that Tushy Obama is fucking Israel in the rear? I can just hear that lying snake talking in his ear, "We'll make all this go away if you just give the terrorist thugs in the Palestinian Authority a state next to yours, and East Jerusalem. That way you can have a Turkish/Syrian/Lebanese alliance to the north, Fatah to the East, and Hamas in the west."

Fuck you Barry.

Mr. Prime Minister, there is no need to go to Washington and meet with that asshole calling himself the President. Your time would be better spent going to India and Russia. I can't believe I just wrote that...again.

Important Flu Info

According to a report that aired on NPR yesterday, the flu in Mexico is killing in a similar pattern as the 1918 flu. The majority of the people who succumbed were relatively young and healthy while the elderly and the very young often survived. You would think just the opposite would be true. Research has been showing that it was not the 1918 virus itself that killed, it was the body's nuclear response that killed. The filling of lungs with fluid and other immune responses did the dirty work. Ironically, people with healthier immune systems died.

Right now it is inconclusive as to whether this pattern is recurring or whether the elderly and young in Mexico received a modicum of protection from this year's flu shot.

Keep your ear to the ground and keep in mind that those who are telling you to strengthen your immune system may be giving you lethal advice.

One thing we know for sure is that Janet Napoleon isn't doing jack shit. The Mexican border is still open. Flights are still coming in from Mexico. And the Resident is playing golf. Seriously, the asshole played golf today. Fuck you Obama! Thanks Diamond Tiger for giving me another reason to tell the Resident to go fuck himself.

This is what a President would do. Shut down the border with Mexico. Shut down all flights. Anyone in this country who recently traveled from Mexico should be quarantined as should anyone who came in contact with them. American nationals in Mexico should be brought home and quarantined or quarantined in Mexico at the government's expense. That's how you respond to this crisis rather than letting it potentially spread...unless you want as many people infected as possible.

More Inconvenient Truth

So resident liar and misleader Joe Cannon quoted me out of context this past week (I expect nothing less from someone who runs fast and loose from facts to push his liberalized fascist agenda). Like all thoughtless dinkles he didn't think twice about linking to my blog where his readers were able to read my post in context and see that their hero is completely full of crap (that is if they are still in possession of the capacity to think critically after constant exposure to his bullshit...no doubt his little sycophantic spy pals from other blogs are running to tell him I wrote this right now so he can quote me out of context again and drive up my traffic...these are the same people who annoyed the crap out of their peers and teachers when they were kids with their incessant and annoying tattle tailing).

People like Joe Cannon push the bullshit line that Jews invaded Palestinian lands, has said that Jews could have a state in Canada, and other head up the ass comments that deny the aboriginal history of the Jewish people in the land west of the Jordan River. This is of course a means to delegitimize Israeli rights to self defense and self determination in a national homeland to which there has been a constant tie for thousands of years.

For those of you who came here from his blog of screed I am going to give you a jumping off point to begin your own research into the legitimate existence of a modern national home in Israel. It is an article written by Allen Hertz regarding the aboriginal history and rights of the Jewish people in the land west of the Jordan.

Here are the final three paragraphs of the Hertz article.

Thus, deep into the 20th century, Arab leaders themselves failed to recognize the right to self-determination of a distinct Palestinian Arab people. For example, as principal Arab leader at the 1919-1920 Paris Peace Conference, Prince Feisal specifically accepted the plan to create Palestine as "a national home for the Jewish people" and his father, the Hashemite king of the Hejaz (later part of Saudi Arabia) was party to the 1920 Sevres Treaty that explicitly stipulated that the newly-created Palestine would be "a national home for the Jewish people."

And, decades later, the governments of Jordan and Egypt showed how little regard they had for the self-determination of a distinct Palestinian Arab people; first, by rejecting the 1947 UN plan to partition Palestine into two new independent states, the one Jewish and the other Arab; and second, by themselves failing to create a new Palestinian Arab state, between 1949 and 1967, when Egypt held the Gaza Strip and Jordan administered east Jerusalem and the West Bank.

Such analysis does not deny the current existence of a distinct Palestinian Arab people; nor does it claim that such a Palestinian Arab people is without rights. Rather, the conclusion is that there are rights on all sides, and that there should be a peaceful process that respectfully reconciles the rights of the Palestinian Arab people with the prior rights of the Jewish people.

For those of you that came from Cannonfire, my suggestion is to start researching these facts, rather than accept Cannon's bullshit because it may be in line with your liberal prejudices and bias.

There has been a lot of talk lately about bloggers, their readers, and what obligations writers have to those readers. As a writer I have done my best to draw a clear line between what is my opinion and what is fact (and what is completely made up) in the hopes that my readers do not mistake the two (or three). Writers like Cannon, and others, make little or no attempt to do so because, like Tushy Obama, they know that the best way to get people to subscribe to their opinion is to call it "truth."

So, if you are interested in deciphering fact from dogma and prejudice, find the transcripts from the Paris Peace Conference. Look at the historical record regarding the Egyptian and Jordanian occupations of Gaza and the West Bank and their inaction in creating a national home for Palestinians. Start finding the facts for yourselves and stop taking the word of bloggers, including myself, as truth.

Political bloggers should be giving the keys to readers for finding facts (when they aren't bagging on the asshats running our planet off a fucking cliff). Readers should be responsible for doing their own digging and seeing beyond the surface. Reading a blog does not expand your knowledge if you don't look below the surface. It's not my job to make everyone happy, or get everyone to agree with me. I'm just a writer with a set of keys. Those keys open doors. It's up to the reader to take them, open the doors, and walk through them.

I have given you keys to examen the issue of the legal and historical legitimacy of the existence of a Jewish national home west of the Jordan River. Go to the primary documents and see the inconvenient truth for yourselves.

Finally! The Ponzi Scheme Reveal

In a stunning turn of events, New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo has revealed that Bank of America was pressured by Ben Bernanke and Hank Paulson into essentially engaging in securities fraud.

Read here and here.

What have I and others been saying? TARP is an extortionist Ponzi scheme and Tushy Obama is the front man.

Bernanke, Paulson, Geithner, and the Resident should all be behind bars.

Send In The Clowns

This past week was the Durban II conference on race. Where do we begin with this nonsense? Perhaps with the last international conference on race that took place in South Africa, where Israel was roundly condemned as a racist state.

Let's take a look at the declaration put forward by the NGO Forum at the 2001 conference.

Farticle 164 states:
...targeted victims of Israel's brand of apartheid and ethnic cleansing methods have been in particular children, women and refugees.

Farticle 425 calls for the implementation of:
a policy of complete and total isolation of Israel as an apartheid state...the imposition of mandatory and comprehensive sanctions and embargoes, the full cessation of all links (diplomatic, economic, social, aid, military cooperation and training) between all states and Israel.

Farticle 426, much like George W. Shrub's, You're either a terrorist or in league with the terrorists statement following 9/11, calls for:
condemnation of those states who are supporting, aiding and abetting the Israeli apartheid state and its perpetration of racist crimes against humanity including ethnic cleansing, acts of genocide.

Before going on it is important to note, once and for all, that the comparison of Israel to Apartheid South Africa is inherently false as all Arab citizens can vote and hold office, and have full civic equality under the law. Even Human Rights Watch has acknowledged that Arabs in Israel enjoy a far higher degree of civil liberties in a state with a Jewish majority than in virtually every Arab country. That's not to say that everything is sunshine, lollipops and rainbows between Arabs and Jews, but anyone who thinks it is remotely like South Africa was under Apartheid knows nothing about what living with Apartheid was about. For those people I suggest reading Cry the Beloved Country, or Donald Woods' books Biko, and South African Dispatches: Letters to My Countrymen as primers. The Struggle is my Life by Nelson Mandela is another. As far as the ethnic cleansing issue goes, Israel must just not be that good at it since, after all this time, those pesky Arabs are still around; even with all of the "help" Israel gets from the United States.

The tenor of the 2001 conference, in which Israel was singled out for special condemnation, cast a cloud over the 2009 conference which was set to reaffirm statements made in 2001. There were calls early on that the United States boycott the conference. The Resident withdrew the US delegation from the conference's planning sessions, but as late as the week before the conference he was leaning to attend (would he have bowed to President of Iran too?). He finally must have decided there was no way to attend the conference without blowing his FOI (Friend of Israel) cover. How brave. Though the final draft of this year's conference omitted any references to Israel, Zionism, or Middle East conflicts in general, the fact that a special guest was on the list of speakers cast another shadow on the conference.

Of all the nations participating in this years hypocrisyfest, only one head of state actually showed up; Iran's own megalomaniacal nebbish and schlemiel, Muhammed "I never miss an opportunity to have an opportunity to condemn Israel" Igogettajob. Apparently, Igogettajob's little tirade at the conference made quite a few people upset, causing them to walk out for the duration of the speech diatribe screed. Here are some of the little dictator's highlights:
"Governments must be encouraged and supported in their fights at eradicating this barbaric racism... Efforts must be made to put an end to Zionism."

Translation: no national self-determination for Jews. So while we're at it, let's also end national sovereignty for Persians. We are trying to end racism here after all. It's not as if Iran is committing acts of ethnic cleansing against its Arab population or anything...

Then there's this little gem where Igogettajob said Israel is a, "most cruel and oppressive, racist regime," which was created from the "pretext of Jewish suffering" during World War II.

Apart from his complete and total denial that there are gay Iranians, his hobbies include Holocaust denial and collecting Chia Pet Famous Dictators. If you believe that Israel was only created because of the Holocaust, the best way to delegitimate its existence is to deny that the Holocaust ever took place. Makes sense...if you're a psychopath.

As the rant got under way the entire French delegation walked out, along with 40 diplomats from more than twenty countries including Morocco.

Here's the list of nations whose delegations walked out:

Austria
Belgium
Britain
Bulgaria
Cyprus
Czech Republic (left the conference for good) ***
Denmark
Estonia
Finland
France
Greece
Hungary
Ireland
Latvia
Lithuania
Luxembourg
Malta
Portugal
Romania
Slovakia

St. Kitts and Nevis

Good on you.

***Thank you Czech Republic

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon was none too pleased stating,
"I deplore the use of this platform by the Iranian president to accuse, divide and even incite. This is the opposite of what this conference seeks to achieve. This makes it significantly more difficult to build constructive solutions to the very real problem of racism".

Unfortunately, for Secretary Ban, he heads an organization whose history of Israel bashing is notorious. This is the same UN that hosts Palestine Day (We're Sorry That We Created Israel Day) on the anniversary of the day the UN voted to partition the land between the Mediterranean and the Jordan River into a Jewish state, and an Arab state. Usually a map of the land is present depicting Palestine, with no Israel. Usually not mentioned is the fact that the creation of the Arab state (which would have occupied more territory than the pre-1967 ceasefire lines), was rejected by the Arabs, with Israel invaded by Arab armies the following Spring. This is also the same UN that resolved in the seventies that Zionism is racism (a resolution that was repealed in the early nineties). So pardon me if I take Secretary Ban's words with a grain of salt.

But the highlight of the conference were the Jewish protestors who spoke out against Igogettajob, and the UN. The European Union of Jewish Students staged a protest against the UN's continued inaction over the genocide in Darfur. Inside the conference, members of the group donned rainbow clown wigs as Igogettajob was introduced, and threw their rubber noses at him as he began to speak yelling, "Racist! Racist!" The clown regalia was declared to be a statement that the conference was a sham and a circus, especially when a racist like Igogettajob is allowed to address a conference that is allegedly supposed to be against racism. The fact that so many nations walked out on the real clown is certainly a positive step forward, as is the EU's sound rejection of singling out of Israel in this year's declaration.

Stop reading this and go read the blog post by one of the members of the EUJS, Zach Novetsky, on his account of the events that day. This is what happens when thoughtful people stand up to be counted. Be inspired.

It is my hope that world Jewry adopts the throwing of clown noses as an expression of protest and anger, much like Arabs throw shoes as they did at the Shrub. I believe that rubber clown nose throwing should be adopted by all recalcitrant citizens when they encounter their leaders.

Next time the man who would be king comes to your town to zap the populace with his dopeymange TelePrompter 5000 gather your friends. Hide your rainbow clown wigs in your pants and keep the rubber noses handy. When he takes the stage let the wigs go on and the rubber noses fly. Is it a crime to throw a clown nose at a sitting Resident? If it isn't yet it probably will be, as it will most likely be declared illegal to wear a rainbow wig within 100 miles of anywhere he might be, including Air Force One fly-overs, which seem to happen rather a lot...

"Michelle, I'm thirsty. I think I'm gonna jump in Air Force One and get a slirpy in Norfolk."

"Shut up Barry I'm watching "Little House."

And now for something completely different...Projectiles...Projectiles...Projectiles

And Now For The Spanking

Author's note: This will really be the last post I waste on the hot air at the Daily Konfluence Ship of Fools Show. I think the article linked on this post says enough about blogs like DK, and Cannonfire for that matter (Big Joe is so busy making love to his anti-Israel invective, quoting me out of context, etc, that he has confused my blog, which has been around for two years, with a new blog created by colleagues of mine after the nonsense at the Daily Konfluence, that you all know as The Widdershins. This is what happens when you live with your head up your ass I suppose). Riverdaughter, you just go on ahead and keep telling everyone how I can't discuss Israel without mentioning the Holocaust to emotionally manipulate everyone. Tell a lie often enough and people will believe it. Ironic that Hitler said that, isn't it? And for the record, I removed the blog roll link titled "The Confluence" that took you to rate my poo dot com out of respect for one of my readers who felt it to be just gross. That's what people do who respect their peers, instead of lying to their readers. Also, for the record, the opinions written here on the whole Konfluence fiasco are none but my own. My colleagues who were also involved in the situation are more than capable of speaking for themselves. There is no need to drag them into this. If they choose to comment here or anywhere else, that is their choice.

Well, it seems that I got the attention of the ship of fools who, as we speak, are stumbling over the most basic forms of social criticism while failing to grasp their own hypocrisy vis a vis Israel and their rapture over the Obama administration attempting to blackmail Israel into allowing the creation of a Palestinian Terror Kleptocracy State on their borders (but, as they are so quick to point out...they really do support Israel...really...they do).

And for the record I think it's hilarious that they are flooding my blog with traffic, quoting posters out of context, and are shocked that I would alter their link in my blog roll to take the traffic to rate my poo dot com where people submit pictures of their bowel movements and viewers vote on their quality of quantity (a far greater use of one's time than reading Riverdaughter's repetitive lies about me and others).

What is it with people and their selective memories? Did someone get a lobotomy or just forget saying over and over again that I am incapable of commenting on Israel without using the Holocaust to emotionally manipulate people? Oh wait, that was Riverdaughter the queen of liberal intellectuals. In fact, she created her own special set of rules on discussing Israel that demands that the Holocaust not be mentioned, which makes her "fyi" post that much more pathetic. We get it dear, your shit don't stink.

People can say whatever they like about my stance that bowel movements will always be a source of hilarity, or that I am an unrepentant supporter of the right of Israel to exist (though those that consider this a fault of mine never cease to fail to acknowledge that I am as unrepentant in my support for Palestinians to live free of mafioso terrorist kleptocrats, something that the Daily Konfluence neokons don't seem to care about). But when you lie about me I am going to call you a fucking liar, and I'm not going to apologize for that.

And now, Bret Stephens on why people, and certain Lefty bloggers, who feel so badly for the Palestinians are nothing but a bunch of fucking hypocrite babies. For those of you keeping score, he doesn't mention the Holocaust either. Don't bother reading the article neokon Konflationists. He writes for the Wall Street Journal so that makes him the spawn of satan. And just so you know I'm not blowing it out my ass, here's the results of the search on The Daily Konfluence for the word "Chechnya":

"Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn't here."

Hmmm...just like honesty and integrity. But there certainly were plenty of contributions in the "silence of our friends" category.

Here's a taste of Stephens' article

Of course, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict inflames the Muslim world in a way the Chechen one does not. But why is that, when so many more Muslims are being victimized by Russia?

Then too, why does the wider world participate in the Muslim world's moral priorities? Why, for instance, do high-profile Western writers like Portuguese Nobelist José Saramago make "solidarity" pilgrimages to Ramallah, but not to the Chechen capital of Grozny? Why do British academics organize boycotts of their Israeli counterparts, but not their Russian ones? Why is Palestinian statehood considered a global moral imperative, but statehood for Chechnya is not?

Why does every Israeli prime minister invariably become a global pariah, when not one person in a thousand knows the name of Chechen "President" Ramzan Kadyrov, a man who, by many accounts, keeps a dungeon near his house in order to personally torture his political opponents? And why does the fact that Mr. Kadyrov is Vladimir Putin's handpicked enforcer in Chechnya not cause a shudder of revulsion as the Obama administration reaches for the "reset" button with Russia?
You'll have to follow the link to read the punch line. If the shoe fits, wear it.

Now sail on Ship of Fools, sail on.

Hillary Clinton: Fraud or Sellout?

Warning lililam, you are not going to like this post, but I have no other question about Clinton now. She is officially part of the problem vis a vis Israel.

I would have called the title of this post "Hillary Clinton is a Fucking Moron" but I know she isn't. But once again she is demonstrating that her stance on Israel as Senator from New York, and candidate for President was for sale.

Tushy Obama's singular obsession with creating a legitimized terror kleptocracy state on Israel's borders has caused Clinton to utter a great steaming pile of turd, as reported by JPost

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned Israel on Thursday that it risks losing Arab support for combating threats from Iran if it rejects peace negotiations with the Palestinians.

Clinton said Arab nations had conditioned helping Israel counter Iran on Jerusalem's commitment to the peace process.

"For Israel to get the kind of strong support it is looking for vis-a-vis Iran, it can't stay on the sidelines with respect to the Palestinians and the peace efforts. They go hand in hand," Clinton told the House of Representatives Appropriations Committee.

"They (Arab countries) believe that Israel's willingness to re-enter into discussions with the Palestinian Authority strengthens them in being able to deal with Iran," she added.

So, as I predicted (what, two days ago?), the Pampers administration is pushing the narrative that Israel's reluctance to negotiate with the Palestinians is going to piss off the Arabs so much (the same Arabs that don't really give a fuck about the Palestinians other than as political leverage and perhaps cannon fodder) they are going to stand in the way of action (diplomatic, military, or otherwise) to prevent Iran from gaining nukes.

Hillary Hillary Hillary. We all know Iran now has enough enriched uranium to produce a bomb. We know the Arabs are shitting in their pants about this and are more than pissed that your boss isn't doing jack shit about it. Are we really supposed to believe that the Arabs are going to stand in Israel's way if they chose to act unilaterally? Please. Why the pathetic need to create a state for Palestinians when they do not have a legitimate governing body (read: a government not dedicated to destroying Israel)? There are only two reasons.
  1. Everyone in the Pampers administration has their head up their ass.
  2. Everyone in the Pampers administration is on board for the Israel beat down and nuking.
A U.S. government that was truly interested in what is best for Palestinians, Israel, and the region, would effectively dismantle Fatah and Hamas's terror regimes so that the people could build legitimate political institutions that would serve them rather than force them to live under what is essentially mafia control.

But then Clinton nearly pushed my hypocrisy meter over the edge. Again from JPost:
Concerning a funding request for the Palestinians, Clinton said the State Department would ensure that no US taxpayer money goes to Hamas.

"No aid will flow to Hamas or any entity controlled by Hamas," she said.

Clinton repeated that any new Palestinian Authority government that included Hamas must recognize Israel, renounce violence and abide by previous agreements.

However, she indicated that the US would not necessarily cut funding to the Palestinians even if Hamas joins the unity government and fails to meet the three above conditions, noting that the US continued to provide funds to Lebanon, whose government includes Hizbullah.

"We are doing that because we think, on balance, it is in the interest of the United States," she said. [Shtuey note: in the interest of the US...you mean like backing Pinochet, arming Osama bin Laden, backing the Shah...not a lot of great choices by our asshat government over the past 30 years, and the trend continues by backing radical Jihadists...fucking awesome Hillary...and by awesome I mean COMPLETELY FUCKING STUPID]

Huh? No aid will flow to Hamas or any entity controlled by Hamas, but the Palestinians will get funding even if Hamas is part of the unity government? First you said Hamas wouldn't be allowed to be part of the unity government if it did not meet the conditions you laid out. Now they can be and that government will get funding.

In February JPost reported that Clinton said:

"I believe that it's important, if there is some reconciliation and a move toward a unified authority, that it's very clear that Hamas knows the conditions that have been set forth by the Quartet, by the Arab summit."

"They must renounce violence, recognize Israel, and abide by previous commitments, she said of Hamas, "otherwise, I don't think it will result in the kind of positive step forward either for the Palestinian people or as a vehicle for a reinvigorated effort to obtain peace that leads to a Palestinian state."

But now it is clear that Hamas need not meet those conditions to join the unity government. So what is the requirement now Madame Secretary, Mashaal and Abbas just have to sing I'm a Little Teapot together while wearing leiderhosen?

So answer the question people: Is Clinton a liar or a sellout, or both? It's one of the three. There's no getting around it. There are only two proofs that Hillary is neither: Openly oppose her boss's stance or resign. Somehow I don't think either of those things are going to happen.

Bungling and Blackmail

I can’t think of a more emotionally manipulative day to write about the latest news in U.S./Israeli relations than Yom Hashoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day), can you? After all, everyone knows that the Holocaust legitimates everything Israel does from being the historically largest source of humanitarian aid to the Palestinian Authority to herding them into cattle cars and gassing them into extinction. Oh wait…that last bit was the Nazis…my bad.

Do you feel manipulated yet?

I suppose that I should take a moment to congratulate the consummate professionals at the Daily Konfluence for invoking me once again, attributing rabid falsehoods and mischaracterizations about myself and my compatriots, and for once again hosting the most historically inaccurate and obtuse conversation on Israel that can be found outside of rense.com. They’ve been making a variety of attempts to engage us in a blog war since there isn’t anything going on more pressing, like the end of our Constitutional Republic as we know it. If y’all would just use a little Boudreaux’s Butt Paste that rash would clear up and you might act less petty and pathetic. Personally I think Riverdaughter may have the cyberhots for me. Why else would she keep mentioning my name? Honey, please contain your pining to the fjords. Your overtures, while flattering, are not appreciated, and are just plain creepy.

About a year ago or so I came out and said that Tushy Obama’s Mideast policy was going to predicated on selling out Israeli security to her enemies in exchange for a Cumbaya love fest with the radical Islamists.

Let’s take a look at the recent timeline of events. First Botox Troll John Kerry traveled to Gaza so Hamas would not think that all its fundraising for the Tushy was in vain. No one really paid much attention as he’s really just a nobody puppet for Pampers now. Then he went to meet with the region's favorite doctor turned rogue nation leader Bashar Assad of Syria, which was followed by his brilliant post-trip talk at the Brookings Institute regarding how the U.S. was going to attempt to peel Syria away from Iran’s sphere of influence by pressuring Israel to return the Golan. Syria would get lots of carrots from the U.S., but only in exchange for consenting to negotiate with Israel over the Golan (which no Israeli government with any sense would ever give up). He then admitted that even if the U.S. was able to successfully hoodwink Israel into committing national suicide by giving up its source of fresh water, and allowing every city in northern and central Israel (read: virtually the entire country) to be in range of Syrian guns and rockets, Syria would probably still ally themselves with Iran. Caroline Glick's assessment goes like this:

If in the past, both American and Israeli policy-makers interested in engaging Damascus have made ending Syria's alliance with Iran a central goal of their proposed engagement, Kerry dismissed such an aim as unrealistic. In his words, "We should have no illusions that Syria will immediately end its ties with Iran."

All the more reason to continue to try and execute that plan, right Johnny? Awesome. We get nothing. Syria stays with Iran. Syria has not been above board regarding its nuclear program, but gets concessions from us, and Israel is expected to give up the Golan. Who let the chimp escape from his pen without his meds?

Then we have Gabi Ashkenazi’s visit to the United States during which no high ranking foreign policy official would meet with him unless he was willing to talk about establishing a Palestinian state. Sorry guys, the future of the Palestinian people, though important, does not present the kind of existential threat to Israel that Iran does. The doors were closed. Gabi went home early. Message to Israel: establishing a Palestinian state run by political parties sworn to destroy you is more important than the safety of your citizens, and the continuing survival of your country (not to mention the survival of Arab nations), whether Pampers had a seder in the White House or not (vomit).

We are now moving into a Factor Ten ignorance zone. Please make sure your environment suits are sealed securely and that your air is flowing properly. Remember to breathe normally, and keep your Davis Safety Lamp handy.

The United States, in its typical ignorance of the functionings of the Middle East, seems to think that it can blackmail Israel by sending the message that there will be no help on the Iran nukes front until Israel consents to a Palestinian state with a divided Jerusalem. [the folks at the Konfluence don’t seem to realize that utilizing this kind of blackmail to dictate the policy of a sovereign nation is the same neocon tactics used by George W. Shrub, but they don’t care as long as they get the results they want; a Palestinian State led by its current terror kleptocracy which means a fucked Israel. So let us now refer to the Daily Konfluence as a neokon blog as no self- respecting liberal would ever endorse neocon strategy…unless they were a bunch of fucking hypocrites. Well, you know what they say, if the shoe fits jam it.]

What Tushy Obama, and his anti-Israel cabal don’t understand is that Israel does not need the United States’ approval to bomb the mother loving crap out of Iran. Israel does not need access to Iraqi airspace to bomb the mother loving crap out of Iran. What the United States fails to understand is that some of the wealthiest and most powerful countries in the world have a vested interest in Iran never getting nukes and, as they did in the wake of the Osirak bombing, will be more than happy to grant Israel all the political cover it needs, where she needs it: behind closed doors. These countries are not happy that Tushy Obama is dragging his feet allowing Iran to get the bomb, a problem all the more urgent now that the UN has revealed that Iran has enough enriched uranium to build a bomb, nor are they going to buy his potential cover story that it is Israel’s recalcitrance that is preventing his administration from acting substantively (which would have to be the narrative he tries to sell them as the Arabs are never going to sing Cumbaya with the Persians, no matter how many Cokes Tushy Obama buys them).

So why is Rahm Emmanuel flapping his chicken wings, making pronouncements that Israel will accept a Palestinian State before the end of Tushy Obama’s first term?

"In the next four years there is going to be a permanent status arrangement between Israel and the Palestinians on the basis of two states for two peoples, and it doesn't matter to us at all who is prime minister."

Translation: my boss wants credit for peace between Israel and the Palestinians before he runs for his second term.

Here are two possible scenarios.
  1. He knows that Israel won’t submit to that, and he doesn’t want his President looking like the ass in the punch bowl when it doesn’t happen. He’d rather have Israel look like the ass in the punch bowl. Rahm may be an idiot, but he’s not stupid. He knows Israel is never going to concede to the pre-67 borders. He knows that Israel is not going to give up East Jerusalem in totum. He knows that Israel is not going to allow a state to be formed on its borders that is run by a terror kleptocracy. He knows that Israel is not going to be blackmailed into a two state solution. He knows Israel doesn’t need the U.S.’s $3 billion. He also knows that his boss doesn’t give a shite about any of those things. He just wants the Arabs and Islamists to love him; hence his bow of subservience in front of the Saudi king.

  2. Rahm is on board with his master's plan to curry Islamist favor by setting up Israel to be rocketed out of existence.

So what is going to happen when Prime Minister Netanyahu comes to America? Well, he's not. Tushy Obama decided to conveniently be out of town, so Netanyahu has decided not to waste his time. It was my hope that he would address AIPAC (you remember AIPAC right? They dictate America's foreign policy which is why the Department of State perennially sells out Israel's security interests to OPEC: Hillary's DoS so far appears to be no exception) and say Israel will no longer be accepting U.S. Government financial assistance as it is clear the two nations have diverging strategic interests. Tushy and the neokons sure won't see that coming. Nope, they see Israel as a leech sucking America’s ass for that $3 billion which, in reality, represents about 1-2% of Israel’s GNP, and comes with a number of strings that have held the Israeli military, intelligence gathering, and economy back for quite a long time. The time to finally tell the U.S. to keep the change has arrived. At her height Israel was a free agent with no allies. She is now in a position to create alliances with far greater strategic and economic benefit than the United States has ever provided. And the message to the United States will be, “You want a Palestinian state so bad you're willing to sit on your hands while Iran gets the bomb? Then move to clear out Hamas and Fatah as that state will continue to be a fantasy until that happens.

In the meantime, the Israelis will move forward to create an economic peace with the Palestinians that will hopefully make peace more profitable than terrorism; if Israel does it right, which I am not entirely convinced will happen. But at least the spineless weasels of Kadima are not in power as that would mean that for sure nothing would happen at all.

The Resident is in over his head. Iran has the enriched uranium to make a bomb. This puts the Saudis in a position where they will want nukes and the entire region becomes that much more unstable. If the red line is reached with Iran's nuclear capability the entire middle east will be privately cheering Israel if she makes the move.

Don't you wish we had a President right now?

Comment rules:

  1. Mention the Holocaust as many times as possible.
  2. Present as much historically inaccurate information as possible.
  3. Tell lots of lies about people you really don't know anything about.
  4. Please please please don't forget to be egomanical, self-absorbed, and condescending.
  5. If you are able to do all four at the same time you get a goody bag.


Yom Ha-Shoah

Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day. Though there is a privileged, white liberal elite that thinks the Jews talk about the Holocaust too much, and use it to legitimate everything done by the State of Israel (who may have the audacity to use the day to show how enlightened and educated they are about it), I say it is never out of style to remember that, with the world's complicity, six million Jews, and 5 million homosexuals, Roma, dissidents, handicapped...were murdered by the Nazi regime that came to power in the wake of the world's appeasement. And we are going to keep talking about it in the hope that such regimes stop rising, so that morons who claim that Israel is a Nazi state will never be short on evidence that this meme is a lie, and that those who utter it will be known as the leaders of the legions of the ignorant. Let it also be a badge of shame for the world which is guilty of inaction in Darfur, Rwanda, the Balkans, Cambodia, and all places where genocide has been allowed to take place since 1945.

Life In The Village

Reports are circulating that the FBI and DHS were conducting surveillance of the Tea Parties that took place last week, checking on the organizers, monitoring their websites, video taping and photographing the various events. While some may be surprised at this unAmerican Big Brother behavior, it comes to me as no great shock.

As someone who attended a great many Grateful Dead shows I am pretty certain that I was photographed a number of times by the FBI and DEA, who threw many of us in jail with life sentences for drug dealing (while scumbags like Scooter Libby and Dick Vader walk free). This sort of thing is not new, and will no doubt continue. My advice to you dear readers is not to give it another thought.

So the FBI and DHS have photos of you dressed like George Washington, who gives a crap? They probably also know what you had for breakfast that morning, in addition to the size, color, and consistency of the bowel movement it produced.

Fact is there are cameras all over the place. They are at ATMs, along freeways documenting traffic, pedestrian thoroughfares, shopping malls, department stores, banks, casinos, hotels, parking garages, airports, schools, convenience stores, intersections photographing cars that run red lights...so why should the Tea Parties be exempt?

Don't let the boogeymen scare you. Let them make you mad. This is just more of the bullshit we have come to accept, but shouldn't have to tolerate in a free society. Security is one thing, knowing whether or not you make purple poops is another (if you're making purple poops you might want to lay off the Fruit Loops).

Shouldn't DHS be a little more concerned with our borders, so-called "sleeper cells," and securing our ports than photographing protestors with a flair for colonial fashion? Just askin'.

COMMON SENSE

Because there are still many people who still don't understand what is happening on the American street, because they cannot seem to grasp the enormity of the events of April 15th and the door that is being kicked down City Tavern is going to be hosting an extended meditation on Thomas Paine's Common Sense.

The title infers that everything within should be obvious to anyone possessing the ability to engage in critical thinking. So let's have a little common sense ourselves and keep moving forward. Tea Partiers carrying signs condemning Republicans and Democrats alike is the moment those of us in the Lagoon of the Unaffiliated have been waiting for all these years. Common sense seems to finally be getting through.

As a long and violent abuse of power is generally the means of calling the right of it in question, (and in matters too which might never have been thought of, had not the sufferers been aggravated into the inquiry,) and as the king of England [read: The Resident] hath undertaken in his own right, to support the parliament [read: Congress] in what he calls theirs, and as the good people of this country are grievously oppressed by the combination, they have an undoubted privilege to inquire into the pretensions of both, and equally to reject the usurpations of either.


The cause of America is, in a great measure, the cause of all mankind. Many circumstances have, and will arise, which are not local, but universal, and through which the principles of all lovers of mankind are affected, and in the event of which, their affections are interested. The laying a country desolate with fire and sword, declaring war against the natural rights of all mankind, and extirpating the defenders thereof from the face of the earth, is the concern of every man [and woman] to whom nature hath given the power of feeling.


These are the stakes. We are not speaking simply of government reform. We are speaking of reforming government for the sake of preserving human freedom. The Congress through legislation like S.773/778 and Harry Reid's Green Energy bill, the stimulus, omnibus, and budget bills, are attempting to centralize government power in the hands of the Executive Branch. To my mind there is only one reason to do so: the supression and/or control of society. Americans aren't taking to the streets simply because of taxes and government spending. They are out in the streets because after 8 years of government subverting our rights to privacy and expression, the new administration is working harder deeper faster longer to accelerate that process. And the Republican Party, with its transparent attempts to look like they are leading the opposition, is as big a part of the problem as the Democrat controlled government. One need only look at the last eight years to see that. Seeing signs from the 15th that said things like, "Republicans suck too!" tells me we are on the right track.

It's time to stop standing by personal political agendas. There can only be one agenda for all Americans who love liberty: The protection and preservation of the constitutional republic. We can sort out the way forward once we stop the government's Constitution crushing freight train of bullshit. We ain't got time for that now. Now is the time to stand up against the corruption and smothering of freedom.

Are You Done Zizn Oif Dein Toches?

Author’s Note: This rant is not directed at all PUMAs, but as usual at OMV, if the shoe fits, wear it. And kudos to Madamab for trying once again to get PUMA on track. I'm still bandaging my head from banging my head on that wall. Some folks are not going to like what they read here, but I am not known for pulling my punches. Consider this constructive criticism, and a final appeal.

Up is down and down is up when PUMAs are quoting Pelosi talking points about the Tea Parties being Republican astroturf. I am fed up. Some, including myself, have been urging PUMAs to get off their asses. Some have, as they have in New York, but many have not. Am I missing something here or are we past having the luxury of time?

Naughty Nazi Nancy, and the MSM have nothing good to say about Tea Partiers. Now some PUMAs are poo pooing the Tea Party movement because as far as they are concerned, the Republican machine created it, and these PUMAs are so true to their ideals (which are apparently still not fully defined) that they will not participate in any movement where they might be perceived as being part of what they feel to be the dark side of the Force. Since when did PUMAs align themselves with Nancy Pelosi, Pampers, and the MSM? They’re the enemy of the moment. Worrying about Republican games is akin to dropping the ball in Afghanistan to go play Name That No-Bid Contract in Iraq. But now PUMAs cheerlead the discrediting of the Tea Party movement with the same language as the Daily Krap. What the hell is that about?

The first event this year, as far as I can tell, was in Seattle. A Republican, concerned about the Douchulus bill began gathering Republicans, Conservatives, Libertarians, and yes; even Democrats together to raise hell on President’s Day. Here’s newsflash number one: Newt Gingrich had nothing to do with it.

The concept had its origins with the Libertarians. Events for Tax Day were being planned in 2008, independent of the Republican Party. And Libertarians are pissed about Republican CO-OPTING. Similar actions were being planned by ordinary Americans across the country.

Why are PUMAs wasting time speculating and theorizing about Republican strategy? It was obvious from the beginning what Republicans were trying to do. But that didn't discourage people from turning out. These were not mindless dupes. They were given an opportunity to express their outrage. Does it really matter if Republicans run around saying it was a victory for their party? No it doesn't. Are the Republicans staging any kind of opposition to Tushy Obama in Congress? No, they aren't. It's pretty audacious to assume that non-PUMAs are not politically savvy. Even more so for PUMAs to assume that they are.

While millions of Americans from both parties and no parties are organizing Tea Parties and marches, networking and building coalitions from across the political spectrum, PUMAs are doing what they seem to do best when there isn't an email campaign on: complain, debate, and discuss, ad nauseam.

Let’s take a look at what’s really going on here.

  1. The nation is angry, not just at Tushy Obama and Democrats, but at Republicans as well.
  2. Seeing that this non-partisan sentiment is gaining ground, “Conservatives” and Republicans begin to insert themselves to co-opt the movement to present themselves as the opposition. Their talking heads publicized the movement and made it seem like their own. There was plenty of head scratching by Tea Party organizers as to who the Republicans thought they were fooling.
  3. Rather than recognize that the nation is embracing a PUMA anti-establishment agenda, PUMA didn’t do a thing to be involved in these events because they believed the astroturfing meme, or thought this was a movement that didn't address PUMA's currently unofficially defined values.
Bottom line? Whether this was astroturf or not, PUMAs should have been capitalizing on the anger and frustration Americans are feeling toward an uncaring government, using these events to spread the word about the movement, and find allies in unlikely places. This was a wasted opportunity of mass proportions, and one that will be hard to fix. The momentum is now with Libertarians and Conservatives; not PUMA. But none of that matters to circles of PUMAs because they see the entire thing is impure because Newt Gingrich addressed the Tea Party in New York.

PUMA has no plan. PUMA has no response. PUMA is not networking to tap into this national sentiment that is standing up against BOTH parties. PUMA has not raised money. PUMA has not built a coalition with non-PUMAs (that would contaminate their values I guess). And so PUMA is dead in the water while the nation struggles to combat the Piece of Shit Fraud in the White House and the Democrap controlled Congress. PUMA should have been leading this movement, but chose to ignore my advice, and the advice of many others.

Instead of simply complaining and attempting to get the word out about Tushy Obama on blogs, PUMAs should have been networking, raising money, and drawing powerful people to their side. That didn’t happen. PUMAs are now having more discussions about issues I raised months ago, but got attacked when I did so. If the national resistance becomes a Republican led movement PUMAs have no one but themselves to blame. They chose to be immobile. They chose to be insular. The movement has not grown. The movement has not formed a leadership. The movement has nothing to offer anyone that is feeling the pulse of the nation. Message received: If it’s not PUMA led it’s not worth our time. How’s that working out so far?

The Congress is moving to give Tushy Obama control of the internet, control of energy production, and the power to subvert our First, Second and Fourth Amendment rights. Someone explain to me how women’s rights get ahead when the White House suppresses free speech. It’s hard to speak with duct tape on your mouth isn’t it?

Here’s another news flash. PUMA has not made any moves to give Americans an alternative to either corrupt party. PUMA has made no attempt to build an independent voting block with non-PUMAs (my 50% solution). Whether the Republicans co-opt the Tea Parties or not, just whom do you think is going to assume control Congress in 2010, a miracle slate of populist Democratic women? This is America. When both your choices are evil Americans choose the evil that isn’t currently fucking them in the ass, even though they remember that they were for eight years.

Newsflash: PUMA IS NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO OFFER AMERICA AN ALTERNATIVE TO AMERICA'S PARTY ELITES BY ITSELF!

The only hope of changing that is a mass movement of all parties, which should include PUMAs, that sends Congress the message YOU ARE FIRED! But PUMAs must be pure. So while the rest of the nation is coming together under any and every banner possible, knowing that it is necessary, despite our differences, in order to topple the corrupt assholes fucking us seven ways to Sunday, PUMA will have its pure party on the side of the road to nowhere. What a fucking waste. But I saw this coming in Denver.

It’s April 2009 and nothing has changed. This is not a time for being on the sidelines. This is a time for ACTION. That is what the people were doing in the streets on April 15th. It’s happening without PUMA.

PUMA supposedly means People United Means Action. The operative word is "action." There is virtually none. There was a time when PUMA also meant Party Unity My Ass. PUMAs need that banner again. We got shit done. We made waves. We were the first to dump the tea into the harbor. Now PUMA is going nowhere. I’m done waiting. We’ve been lighting fires under you and they keep getting put out.

STOP TALKING!!! SOMETHING IS ACTUALLY HAPPENING!!!




I find the gender role reversal vis a vis the video and this post rather ironic.

STOP SITTING AROUND TALKING AND DO SOMETHING!!!

You're The Dream Operator

Today was the day of the Tax Day Tea Parties. Pretty tremendous knowing that Americans of all political persuasions decided to get up off their keesters and make their voices heard in the face of rampant political corruption.

Regardless of who people voted for, most of us wanted change. Not, "Change," but change. But many of us understood that we were not going to get it. We were going to get a third Shrub term regardless of who won. The only difference is who gets to play on the team, and who is getting the free deluxe box seats. With the Shrub it was Haliburton, Bank of America, AIG, and selling our economic soul the the Chinese. With Tushy Obama it's...the aforementioned, plus all his new little piggies come to suck at our taxpaying teat, and screw us. McCain at least was more like dancing with the devil you know, as opposed to the demon you don't. But still, that's just choosing evil isn't it? I've always said so, which is why I have cast the majority of my votes for President for animals, fictional characters, and dead relatives. At least then I didn't feel like a fucking tool.

We had a couple friends over to dine with us. One of them, whom I have known for nearly eight years, tried to convince me tonight that I should look at the glass as half full; that our choice in November was between watching Death of Salesman, and La Cage Aux Folles on Broadway. He would rather watch La Cage and feel entertained and happy, than bitter and depressed over the breaking of Willie Loman. "The glass is half full," and I should stop seeing the glass as half empty. What I have not been able to get him to understand is that I see the glass as neither.

The glass is broken and no longer holds water. I want a new fucking glass.

The zombie media can say what it likes about the Tea Parties being run by domestic terrorists, and that our Iraq and Afghanistan vets are coming back as domestic terrorists (the final insult in a long chain of abuses, from sending our men and women into harm's way to line the pockets of American corporations, to chipping away at their benefits until the current administration had the audacity of dope to suggest that disabled vets should pay for their own insurance, while the new First Lady came to North Carolina to tell soldiers and their families that she was going to make them a priority), but this is why Americans took to the street today:

We want a new fucking glass. A new fucking glass so we can drink cool clear water again. We're tired of oligarchs and autocrats who spend our money, don't heed our voice and, in the end, could care less about our wants, needs, dreams, or desires. Our government was designed to keep things together on a national scale so that we would be free to pursue our dreams, not be told what our dreams should be, and what we have to do to make them come true.

Today was a day for Americans to stand up and tell the government that they are not the Dream Operators, we are. Fucking deal with it.

So Long Harry


Arguably the greatest voice in sports, Harry Kalas, passed away at the age of 73. He was the voice of summer, the voice of my youth, doing play by play for the Phillies as long as I can remember, not to mention all those NFL films. We used to bring a radio to the games so we could hear him make the calls. He was a class act all the way around, a Philly institution.

I'm glad he was able to call one last Phillies World Series Championship before he moved on. No doubt it was as special to him as the first one in 1980.

Harry, thanks for all the work, your love of the team, and the game. No one will replace you.

Breaking: Captain Phillips Rescued

NBC news is reporting that Captain Phillips has been rescued by Navy Seals, and is safe aboard the USS Bainbridge. Word is he is unharmed. Hopefully these douchebag idiots are getting the message: Don't fuck with us, even if our Resident is a lying ass.

For the record: Seals rescue...my idea. :)

CNN is also reporting the story.

The OMV family sends well wishes to Capt. Phillips and his family, along with the members of the US military who helped effect this rescue.

Oh No Bo!

Shockingly, today was the debut of the Obama's new dog. It had been rumored that this announcement would have been made on Wednesday to coincide with the Tax Day Tea Parties so the media would have a built in excuse to avoid covering them. I wonder what the distraction story will be instead? Pirates? Michelle does pilates? Pizza? Peter Piper picks a peck of pickled peppers? No wait...Weighs and Means announces how much a woodchuck chucks if a woodchuck could chuck wood!

I'm sure by now you've heard all the details about the dog being a gift from Ted, the clandestine meetings, the analysis of his bowel movements until you want to vomit so I won't belabor the point. My dogs however have some words of advice for Bo (or is it Beau, after Beau Biden who helped effect the mugging of Larry Sinclair until after the DNC in Denver?)

Have these few precepts in thy memory
See thou character. Give thy thoughts no tongue,
Nor any unproportioned thought his act.
But do growl at Tim Geitner because he is an evil little weasel who is helping to fleece the American tax payer. Also growel at Bobby Gibbs because he is a sniveling little rat-faced git.

Be thou familiar, but by no means vulgar.
Do however feel free to urinate on the shoes of your master
When he doth not feed you promptly.

Those friends thou hast, and their adoption tried,
Grapple them to thy soul with hoops of steel;
Those you don't like, hump their legs as if the commencement
Of the 'morrow shalt not be.

Do not dull thy palm with entertainment;
That's your master's baiting job.
Trotted out before the cameras thou shalt be
When dark tidings arriveth for thine master (occur with great frequency this will,
To thine self acquire a stunt double; the flash of the cameras can be disorienting).

Beware of entrance to a quarrel, but being in,
Bear't that the opposed may beware of thee.
Bite them on the ankle if your
Petition for cookies goes unheeded.

Give every man thy ear, but few thy voice;
Or bite their ears and bark all the time.
You're a dog, just goeth for it.

Take each man's censure, but reserve thy judgment.
Advice on the objects available for mastication shall be
Multiplied as the stars in heaven.
Your master's shoes doth possess a buttery leather quality.
When you're a puppy you can get away with those things.

Costly thy habit as thy purse can buy,
But not express'd in fancy; rich, not gaudy (don't let them dress you up like an idiot);
For the apparel oft proclaims the man;
Just look at your master's wrinkled G20 suit.
He probably spent the night trying to hump
Carla Bruni's leg (you could definitely get away with that, so if she comes to the White House, go for it, but tell Larry Flynt you want a piece of the action when he publishes the photos).

Neither a borrower nor a lender be;
For loan oft loses both itself and friend,
And borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry.
If you let another dog borrow that roll of toilet paper or towels,
You are definitely not getting it back.

This above all: to thine ownself be true,
If you have to take a dump in the house, just do it.
You're the Resident's dog.
He's shitting all over us so shit all over the house.
You'll make a lot of Americans proud.

Here's an appropriate story for the times. Ya think Treasury will give them new money, or give it to the zombie banks instead? I'm betting on the banks.

Tushy Obama

I got an email from dear friend, who is also a loving mother of two; both boys. One of her sons, whom she refers to as Pumpkin, age 3 if I'm not mistaken, decided to he wanted to "read" her a story. Pumpkin opened a book and said, "Once there was a tushy named Tushy Obama." His mother's fits of hysterical laughter brought the story to a sudden ending, but wouldn't more story just be guilding the lily?

And so Pampers became Tushy Obama and a new era of saracastination was born. And the congregation rose in unison and said, "Yes we can."

"The Ten Commandments" is on tonight, as it is every Easter weekend. Still trying to figure that one out. Anyway, it's as good a time as any to bring back one of my favorite spoofs.




Let Them Eat...Pizza?

Yes dear friends, the economy is in the tank. The Resident is ramming the deconstruction of America through Congress in the guise of spending bills. The unemployment rate is growing at a faster than a major league baseball player on steroids, and people are still losing their homes to foreclosure. Is the Resident Juan Pampers Peron Jr. Jr. working tirelessly to bring relief to American workers, defend our republic, rescue captured Americans, and stop the encroachment of radical Islamists like the Moderate Taliban? Nope. He's ordering pizza...for 140.

That's right...pizza. According to the Mail Online:
Chris Sommers, 33, jetted into Washington from St Louis, Missouri, on Thursday with a suitcase of dough, cheese and pans to to prepare food for the Obamas and their staff.

He had apparently been handpicked after the President had tasted his pizzas on the campaign trail last autumn.

And you thought Pampers was just meandering across the 57 states mindlessly reciting his teleprompter laden stump speech over and over, when in fact he was selflessly searching for America's greatest pizza. How did that speech go again?

"Will the American people be able to enjoy the greatest pizza the world has ever known? Yes we can! For I have tasted this pizza, and it is good." And the congregation rose up as one and said, in the words of the ancient spiritual: "Yes we can."

I just want to know one thing; did Sommers have to put his pizza dough in a TSA approved Ziploc bag?
