I don’t really blog over here. I got the account so I could post to ConClub when Dave invited me to post there. I appreciate the follows, but my blog is located on my website, which also has links, downloads, news feeds, videos, and more. Check it out if you have a minute.

The latest attempt by the Obamanista regime to make Queen Michelle appear to be “just one of the regular folks” has failed miserably. At least to some degree.
Last Friday, Michelle Obama was “caught” while shopping “incognito” at an Alexandria, Virginia Target department store. According to the news sources, the First Lady likes to sneak out of the White House without telling anyone. The First Lady’s communications director, Kristina Schake says “it is not uncommon for the First Lady to slip out to run an errand, eat at a local restaurant or otherwise enjoy the city outside the White House gates.” (Source) To back up their story, the dominant liberal news outlets have devoted expensive air time during multiple news shows to gush over how down to earth the First Lady is and to splash photos of Queen Michelle out alone shopping at Target.
“Incognito”? Are you serious? She “sneaks out of the White House without telling anyone”? Really? Come on now. Nobody can possibly believe this can they? Well, yes, yes they do. One Target shopper stated on camera, “She’s down to earth. She’s like regular people,” and another, who, when told Queen Michelle was shopping at Target said, “Why wouldn’t she shop at Target? Where else is there to go to get shampoo and toilet paper and bras and cat food and bananas all in one place?” (let’s hope these two have simply had a momentary lapse of reason) (Source)
Have these people lost their minds? Did they leave their intelligence under their bed along with the dust bunnies and cob webs? Even if we purposely disregard the fact that the Associated Press was alerted to this “sneak out” well in advance so they would be able to provide a photographer to capture the “sneak out” on film. Even if we ignore the fact that her cadre of Praetorian Guards were right there with her. Even if we simply dismiss the fact that there are no more then 6-8 people anywhere near the registers (even though there are at least four registers open), people still believe that the Secret Service would allow the First Lady of the United States to go about unprotected in a city where the violent crime rate is projected to rise over 2009 figures. (Source)
It is clear to me that this entire event (and “event” it would have been just contending with the logistics alone) is nothing more than a publicity stunt designed to counter the “let them eat cake” image the Obama’s have projected since King Hussein I took office back in 2008. Personally, I am offended and insulted by the Obama’s in that they would actually treat American’s as being stupid enough to fall this kind of charade. Of course, this falls right into line with the King’s viewpoint that we are a nation of backwoods ignorant folk clinging to our Bibles and guns. And I am offended and insulted by the dominant liberal media’s to play along with this charade as well.
It is blatantly obvious what the First Lady is doing, and the dominant liberal media is not simply playing along, they are helping to perpetuate this false image by obfuscating the obvious. They are insisting that this is a real occurrence, a common occurrence, and they are defining this one-act play as the actions of a common everyday housewife, engaged in the common everyday activities that every common everyday housewife engages in. They want us to ignore what we know to be true, and believe what they tell us – just like any good public relations (or propaganda ministry) would. And that is just exactly what they dominant liberal media has become – the Ministry of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda for the Obamanista regime. Whether it’s NBC, ABC, CBS, HBO’s Little Billy Maher, or the cadre of clowns at MSNBC, these are the minister’s of propaganda, the doctor’s of disinformation, the obfuscators of the obvious, and no different in my book than Tokyo Rose, Axis Sally, Lord Haw Haw, or Pyongyang Sally. In the case of Queen Michelle’s misleading masquerade as one of the “common folk”, they have not only failed, but failed miserably.
King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia has announced that Saudi women will be granted the right to vote, and the White House is beaming with joy! Abdullah went on to say, “We refuse to marginalize the role of women in Saudi society and in every aspect, within the rules of Sharia.” (Notice the qualifier there.) He went on to say, “Balanced modernization, which falls within our Islamic values, is an important demand in an era where there is no place for defeatist or hesitant people.” (Again, notice the qualifiers, “balanced modernization” which “falls within our Islamic values.”) [Source]
The White House is beside itself with joy now that the king has taken this monumental step in recognizing women’s rights, but don’t you think their celebratory stance is a bit premature? To begin with, Saudi women will not be able to vote for another four years. A lot can happen in four years my friend. A lot. In addition, they will only be able to participate in local elections. Let us not forget that Saudi Arabia is not a democracy. It is a monarchy. The king is not elected. Any local “elections” that the Saudi women may be able to participate in (remember, this “right” doesn’t take effect for four years) are meaningless because the monarchy has the final say. And even if they still retain this new found “right” in four years, their husbands and fathers (or other male head of house) can still deny them right to leave their home to vote or run for local office, as women in Saudi Arabia are still considered to be the property of their husbands or fathers (this includes the child brides Saudi men are allowed to take)
The fact of the matter is, that Saudi Arabia is far from being a bastion of women’s rights. In fact, their view of “balanced modernization within [their] Islamic values” is right out of the stone ages. In Saudi Arabia women are still beaten, still maimed, still disfigured, still hung, still stoned, still shot, and still beheaded. That aspect of Saudi “balanced modernization” hasn’t changed one bit in the last 1400 years. So although everyone is clapping and slapping Saudi Arabia on the back for its “reformed thinking,” my BS meter is pegging in the red over this.
Saudi Arabia is still a wahabbi controlled country ruled by a monarchy and governed by shariah law, and as such is still an anti-women’s rights, anti-human rights, anti-freedom, anti-liberty, and anti-America country. This whole thing is nothing more than a public relations scam designed to make people forget the truth about them, and start thinking what a wonderful group of people they are. Sorry to burst your bubble folks, but you need to put the party favors away.
Good time Charlie Rangel was honored yesterday with words of adulation and praise for all the wonderful things he has done over the course of his illustrious career. (Source) (Source) The Rangel Celebration is to be highlighted by the unveiling of an official portrait of Rangel, a portrait completed at a cost of $64,000. Delightful.
Should anyone out there be unsure as to just who the recipient of this prestigious celebration actually is (and I doubt there are many), allow me to shed some light on the illustrious Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.). This is the same Charles Rangel who was brought up on ethics charges and found guilty of 11 counts of violating House ethics rules. (Source) These so-called “rules” included violating the solicitation and gift ban, violating postal service laws and franking commission regulations, violation of the letter head rule, leasing a “residential use only” rent stabilized apartment that he used as a campaign office (in order to avoid paying the higher rent associated with actual office spaces), and, among other rules, failing to report rental income on his $500,000 Dominican Republic villa.
Wait, wait, wait. Did I just read that right? Failing to report rental income? Isn’t that what people go to prison for? Isn’t tax fraud a felony? Well, um, yes, it is. (as an aside, one of Rangel’s aide recently said he was guilty of the same thing [Source]). Congress takes care of its own, however, and they did censure ol’ Charlie. You know what a censure is don’t you. It is an official reading of the charges against you on the house floor. And after that, it’s, um, back to business as usual. I would say it is the equivalent of a slap on the wrist, but an actual slap on the wrist does incur a modicum of brief barely noticeable pain. A censure does not. But I digress. We were talking about Charlie’s celebration.
Those in attendance include Speaker of the House John Boehner, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), Sen. Chuck Schumer, Rep. Emmanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.), and others. Not expected to attend is the widow of New York City Policeman Phil Cardillo, or his children. There’s that questioning look again. Who is Phil Cardillo? Allow me to elaborate. On April 14, 1972 a call was made to the New York City police department reporting an officer needing assistance. When Cardillo and his partner Vito Navarra arrived at the address given, it was a mosque. And not just any mosque, but Nation of Islam mosque #7 in Harlem. Knowing only that a fellow officer was possibly in danger, Cardillo and his partner entered the mosque where they were quickly met by a large group of black muslims shouting “allah akhbar,” and who immediately attacked the officers (can you say “set up”?)
Back up arrived and two more officers entered the mosque, only to be attacked and beaten as Cardillo and his partner had been. During the assault the officers were beaten and stomped by dozens upon dozens of black muslims. Other officers arrived, but were unable to enter the barricaded door. A shot was fired and officer Cardillo was mortally wounded with his own pistol. Police forced their way in and saw a large black muslim identified as Louis 17X Dupree running away with Cardillo’s weapon. Dupree and others sought refuge in the mosque’s basement where officers were able to detain them.
What has this to do with Charles Rangel? I’m getting to that. Officer Cardillo’s murder was never solved, and his killer has never been brought to justice. Even with officers witnessing Dupree with Cardillo’s gun, and even with 17 suspects being detained in the basement. The reason for this is because the police were ordered to let the suspects leave the mosque alone and not escorted by any police. The police were then told to leave the mosque as well under threat of bodily harm from a mob of black muslims numbering in the hundreds if not thousands. The result was the suspects were allowed to leave and disappear, the police left the mosque, and officer Cardillo’s killer has never been brought to justice. Oh, I almost forgot to mention. The orders to let the suspects go and for police to leave were given by Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan and Rep. Charles Rangel as they confronted the police in Farrakhan’s mosque. (Source)
I don’t know about you, but in my book Rangel’s actions on that day make him expressly complicit in the murder of police officer Phil Cadillo. Maybe they will include this in Rangel’s day of celebration and the subsequent unveiling of his $64,000 portrait, but I doubt it. Heh, and you thought Bill Clinton was slick!
At least that appears to be the Obama Administration’s line of reasoning. It was reported today that the Obama Administration is shutting down CLASS, the Community Living Assistance Services and Supports Act, a federal program that helps seniors and the disabled who cannot afford to buy long term care insurance. (Source) The CLASS Act is designed to help provide both home and community based services to seniors and the disabled that lack the ability to function in daily life. Things such as adaptive aids and medical supplies, minor home modifications, nursing services, occupational and physical therapy, respite care and other services will no longer be available through the program. The result will be thousands of Americans who desperately need these services in order to survive will be left to fend for themselves and find other means to provide for their often life sustaining needs.
What a charming way to eliminate those who many feel are nothing but a millstone around the neck of America. By comparison, the Nazi’s were much more humane. In Nazi Germany, the elderly and disabled were shipped off to camps where they were exterminated, as opposed to being left to eke out a miserable existence all on their own until they simply die from lack of medical care or assistance. Hitler would be proud, as would Stalin.
Dear GOP: This is what is known as infiltration. It is a process in which individuals (or small groups) penetrate an area (especially the military penetration of enemy positions without detection). This is something islam has been doing for centuries. It is a means of gaining control. No you do realize this don’t you? You really aren’t that stupid are you? (Source) OMG! You are! You really are that stupid!
Dear New York Times: Have you ever heard the term “Sleeping with the Enemy”? (Source)

Dear President Obama: Can you please explain why your administration wants our military to use a product that is known to interfere with their GPS systems? Wouldn’t using this product prevent them from effectively sending GPS guided missiles against our enemies? Just wondering. By the way, your kufi is showing again. (Source)
Dear President Obama: Is this a portent of things to come? Huh, Barry? Got something against Christians, do you? You good little muzzie you! (Source)

Dear Massachusetts: in case you need to be reminded: The Battle of Concord, the Battle of Lexington, the Boston Massacre, Paul Revere’s famous ride. The American Revolution started in your front yard. The flag we pledge allegiance too is a symbol of that revolution and our independence from Britain. Does any of this have any educational value, or have you turned so far away from your roots and your country? (Source)
Dear Rep. Schakowsky: Try it. That’s all I can say. Just try it. (Source)

Dear President Obama: Way to go! I’ll wager this took quite a bit of thought, putting a terrorist supporting country on a counter terrorism committee, while at the same time excluding a country rife with counter terrorism experts. Putz. (Source)
Dear Ford Motor Company: I love you! (Source)
Dear President Obama: In case you have yet to notice, the stimulus did not work. Solyndra ($535 million down the drain), Evergreen Solar ($5.3 million down the drain – it’s jobs are now going to China), SpectraWatt ($500,000 flushed away), Mountain Plaza ($424,000 gone with the wind), Olsen’s Mills ($10 million going, going, gone!). Great job of piddling away our money. Thanks Barry. (Source)
Dear Rahm Emmanuel: Good to see Chicago politics haven’t changed one iota over the years. It’s still business as usual. Strong arming, extortion, etc. I assume you have your baseball bat battalion standing at the ready? (Source)
Dear Denver: The answer would be “racial motivation.” It’s all the rage these days. Just so ya know. (Source)
Dear New York: I find it quite telling that the woman walking in front of your anti-Israel poster is a muslim. As they say, a picture is worth more than a thousand words. By the way, Mayor Bloomberg, your kufi is crooked. (Source)
