Dr Doom Deals A Losing Hand.

November 30, 2010

Imagine that Obama’s latest disaster wasn’t dead on arrival. Say the nation suddenly decided en masse to completely dismantle our nuclear deterrent as a shining example to the world. How safe would you feel?

Obama and Medvedev at the APEC summit in Yokohama, November 2010.

Realistically, we’d be stuck in a conventional defensive posture without the strength to curtail the spread of nuclear weapons. With smaller dictatorships lining up to be able to access tactical or larger bombs, sooner or later someone is going to pop a cap, to use the street parlance for it. Worst case would be that one of them would decide to toss one our way just make a point… or several if they thought they could get away with it.

Yeah, ok, it is a pretty far out scenario. But not so much different than the reality of the START treaty would be to our ability to preempt or deter nuclear attacks against us and our allies.

START would be a hard sell, even if Obama was not a badly damaged president whose every move has been motivated by hatred of America and its capitalist economic system which has been, and still is, the envy of the world he absolutely detests. From his liberal mother to his Indonesian mullahs, then Frank Marshal Davis and George Soros. America haters all. All this, not to even mention the wrong-Reverend Jeremiah Wright, or his close ties to The Muslim Brotherhood and The Nation of Islam.

I’m one of those people who is constantly following the lines and connecting the dots. Best of all, the money says it all. I don’t believe for a minute that Obama hasn’t carefully planned every move he’s made, and he’s only had one aim in mind. The destruction of this country. There’s just no other way to connect those dots.

The (former) White House is leaking like a sieve. His administration has leaked more material than all of the administrations since the Revolutionary War. He and his entire government are a real-life disaster area. This is a bunch of neophyte nincompoops, not a government.

Obama has sold off so much of himself that there’s not enough left of him to make a decent sandwich. I heard today that medical coverage for the children of some of his pet union workers was going to be dropped. Not the union bosses, you understand. Not the SEIU or the AFL-CIO, not Andy Stern. Certainly not Richard Trumka or any of his union bosses. The workers… they’re the ones losing the coverage for their children.

That’s Dr Doom’s next hand… and oh, by the way… how’s that hopey-changey stuff now?

Patriot Movement And Establishment Square Off.

November 29, 2010

It’s almost comical to see the flying posteriors and elbows of the establishment elitists as they madly scramble to attempt to co-opt the arriving freshmen representatives. Only they’re just not having any luck with this bunch… or very little. Maybe enticing away a moderate here or there, who would have most likely gone RINO on us anyhow. A target for the next cycle.

Boehner, Cantor and Pence.

This new crop has a bone in its teeth. These folks are on a mission and aren’t likely to forget why they were sent to Washington. They have, in addition, the historical perspective afforded them by the Heritage Foundation and the Conservative Republicans. For once, I think we may have some leadership with the plain intestinal fortitude that’s required if you’re going to fight these Marxists, wherever they are.

With guys like Eric Cantor, Darrell Issa, John Boehner, Kevin McCarthy, Pete Sessions, to say nothing of Mike Pence and Paul Ryan… strong Conservatives all. Tough and no-nonsense, these are the faces of the New Conservative leadership to whom our younger Conservative members will be looking for guidance and inspiration… and not the elitist, erstwhile movers and shakers who until just recently were still congratulating themselves on destroying the chances of some very fine Republican candidates, simply because they were not the choices of the party anointed elite. Yet they were clearly the choice of the American people.

So how should we reply to such blatant skulduggery within our own ‘party’? We watched, we know who you are. When your cycle is up… so are you. We’ve been catching it in the shorts from the entrenched so-called party elite for so long it’s a severe temptation to launch the entire strength of the Tea Party Patriots against them in open internecine warfare.

The result, I fear, would be a wrecked Republican Party and a Patriot Movement forced into governing… something it was never meant to do. No. We’ll have to defeat them at their own game, then throw out the stale rulebook and start again.

The Tea Party will always serve the country best by its dogged determination and its eternal vigilance in the cause of liberty.

Dr Doom And The Other Cult Of Death.

November 28, 2010

It didn’t start with this president, or even the one before him, though George Bush did make a serious mistake by characterizing Islam as “a religion of peace”. That entirely false premise has hampered this country’s ability to clearly identify and define a proven and sworn mortal enemy of America, and the entire western world for that matter.

In some strange Pavlovian fashion, no doubt fostered by the ‘governing elites’ of both parties, and promulgated by the ever submissive and slavish lame stream media, whenever the words Muslim, Islam, Islamist or CAIR show up, everybody just clams up and gives it all a great big pass.

Anything Islamist, good. Anything American or patriotic, bad. The denial of the simple facts, that a short course in recent history reveal a systematic series of obfuscation, diversions and outright lies about attacks against us, going back a good 20 or 30 years. 31 years to be precise… with the internationally perceived weak pacifist and apologist Jimmy Carter.

In the murky, factional, pseudo-political, tribal-based, religious, squabbling world of the Middle East he was not only not to be feared, he was to be despised for his weakness. So despised, as a matter of fact, that they (the Islamo-fascists) felt confident enough to invade our embassy, sovereign American soil. An out-and-out declaration of war.

When faced with the strength and determination of a Ronald Reagan, they immediately rolled over. They knew, just as every true coward and bully does in his heart of hearts, that this was a man not to be trifled with.

Islam is not, and never has been, a religion of peace. It is, in fact, a death cult. Its writings promote death, torture, conquest, persecution, rapine and oppression. It is the only ‘so-called’ religion on Earth that canonizes conquest and the slaughter of innocents.

Our Dr Doom has a magnanimous view of Islam, probably as a result of his early exposure to all things Muslim. Later, as we know, his anti-American hatred would be honed at the crucible of avowed communist ex-officio Frank Marshall Davis.

That’s what has bothered me most about Dr Doom. After the first few times I heard the guy speak I thought, ‘This guy doesn’t like America. I can hear it in his voice’. It was true. For all his high-flown rhetoric he doesn’t sound like an American. He sounds like someone observing America, but not a part of it… a stranger in our midst.

America and the entire western world had better wrap their minds around the fact that we are up to our necks in an inter-generational, world-wide war that may last for a century… with people who do not compromise, who only respect power, and absolute power at that, who will stop at nothing to achieve their stated goal of worldwide conquest.

Dr Doom And The Cult Of Death.

November 27, 2010

Barack Hussein and the Marxist Clown College, including the functionally impaired minions lurking in the (former) White House, dreaming their dreams of Marxian Utopia. Spawned, nurtured and polished by radical socialist academics, who haven’t the first clue as to how the country they are presuming to dictate to really works.

To a man, or for you PC hangups, to a person, they know nothing past their feverish dreams of Utopian perfection, blithely ignoring the perspective history has taught us about every single attempt at collective socialism… or if it floats your boat, Keynesian economics.

Ancient Rome, a massive behemoth which, when the trappings of empire were stripped away, never could self-sustain. Its people addicted to government grain handouts, farmers taxed by the output of their production leaving little incentive to grow more food, extravagant spectaculars to keep the ordinary Roman’s mind off his poverty, a government rife with corruption and intrigue.

Does any of this sound familiar? It should. This scenario of ancient Rome could be Washington. It certainly has all the trappings of a decadent empire.

We’re watching the fruits of the almost universally despised Obamacare begin to ripen as it’s shaping up to be a disaster on every level… and there’s crap buried throughout this monstrous tome which could well break the bank by itself, let alone what we can see at this point.

One of the most glaring of the many outrageous lies perpetrated by Barack Hussein is that our seniors would be able to keep their Medicare and their own doctors. Guess what? Half a trillion dollars has been stripped away from Medicare and the Obama administration is trying to force 30 million people into a one-size-fits-all medical system, doomed to failure from its inception.

Those ‘death panels’ that the liberal media had such fun with Sarah Palin over? Guess what? They’re real… just ask Paul Krugman. He finally came out and said the death panels will be working overtime to rid us of those pesky seniors and oh, by the way, we need a VAT tax to help fund the government.

So we see that Obama is stripping medical coverage and benefits from seniors across this country. More frightening still are the hundreds of doctors whose practices can no longer afford to take Medicare patients because their payment schedules have been decimated by the DeMarxists’ depredations.

Dr Doom… and the cult of death. Only one of several for our good Doctor. Tell our Conservative Senators and Representatives that we don’t want Obama care fixed.
We want it repealed, to remain forever on the manure pile of history.

What’s With The Brits?

November 26, 2010

It’s not your grandpa’s MI6. Britain behaves like a defeated nation. The government so fears the muslims in its own population that they would align themselves with those who would see them destroyed.

MI6 Headquarters, London

Stuxnet is raising Cain with not only Iran’s centrifuges but, as I predicted, their military targeting computers as well. It’s no coincidence that there are reports of penetration of Iranian air space during such periods.

I have no idea where Stuxnet was spawned. The implication was that it was done by hackers… I believe that it was a creation of Israel with the aid of the US.

I said that Iranian claims that they had cornered the critter and all was rosy were so much garbage. It turned out that I was right. Stuxnet is the gift that keeps giving… it works by being patient and opportunistic. Then, when it does strike, it spreads like crazy.

Is it possible that Britain can be that badly deceived? As reported, MI6 thinks the Stuxnet worm is national enemy #1. News reports on British television, by so-called ‘experts’, have completely omitted the fact that in every country where the worm has been detected it has been benign… except Iran.

American intelligence would like to see Stuxnet pay a visit to North Korea and her nuclear program. Whether it would be possible to plant the worm, in as tightly-controlled a country as N. Korea, remains to be seen.

Korea or not, I think that Britain should consider her position with regard to Stuxnet, and the real reason for pandering to muslims by the condemnation of the virus with regard to Iran.

Thanksgiving – Time To Reflect On Our God And Our Freedom.

November 25, 2010

I’ve been absolutely appalled listening to the insipidly ‘tame’ individuals willingly trading their freedom for the dubious safety afforded by the dysfunctional TSA and its entire apparatus. Fact: The TSA has neither detected nor prevented a single incidence of terrorism since its inception, despite the inconvenience and discomfiture of millions of traveling Americans.

This government has come closer than any number of enemies to subjugating the American people. Our forefathers of only a few generations ago would be appalled at the reach of Washington into our personal affairs and our daily lives. They would not have tolerated it. Washington or no Washington, they would have stopped the nonsense dead in its tracks.

Just to aid the liberally challenged out there… neither would they have recognized the so-called ‘separation of Church and State’. It simply didn’t exist. There is no such precept anywhere in the Constitution or in any of the Founding Documents. The only reason it has been permitted to exist at all is because of the weakness and timidity of self-described ‘men of the people’ who had not the courage of their supposed convictions.

Had the proponents of the secularist removal of God from the body politic been confronted with determination and purpose, their arguments would have dissolved in the face of the Constitution itself.

It is my firm belief that our so-called Republican leadership has been highly culpable in this regard. Much more willing to cave at the first onslaught of the secular left than to stand and fight on principle. That’s why the establishment of the GOP must undergo a reformation or be left behind.

By abrogating their responsibility in this regard, they have left this and many other battles for us, the American Patriots, to fight.

Today we join with family, relatives and friends to meet and give thanks to God almighty, the architect of our great nation. And when you do, say a prayer for the preservation of our country, our ideals, and the sacred covenant which freedom has forged between us and our Creator.

No other country, no other people, have been as blessed as we. We are the light and the hope of the civilized world.
Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Holder, Napolitano and their evil ideology will not stand in the face of the march of the American Patriot.

Don’t Let It Get To You, Sarah.

November 24, 2010

It reminds me of the well-meaning, well-spoken, genteel elderly lady that you see in so many movies. “Oh, what a lovely young man” she says, while sipping afternoon tea. It is usually a humorous moment in the production, with her description of an escaped criminal to an investigating police officer.

I’m not comparing any of Barbara Bush’s likable people to a convict, but her comments to Larry King were certainly filled with the same sort of naïvety, especially from a political perspective.

I like George and Barbara, as I do Mitt Romney. I can’t say that I dislike Bill Clinton, regardless of his political leanings. Maybe it’s the ‘naughty-boy’ charm that he exudes. I don’t think, for one minute, that Skip will be in agreement on that point!

Back in 2008, I was disappointed that Romney was not on the ticket. Out of a pretty weak field, he seemed to me to be the best hope. Other than the blemish on his record that was Massachusetts health care (no one’s perfect), his financial track record appeared to be what was needed as the country descended into recession.

A lot has changed in two years. The GOP is now a vibrant, re-invigorated party, thanks largely to the Tea Party. My personal favorite/s for the presidency no longer includes Mitt Romney. I still like the guy, but from a practical viewpoint he is not the best the Party has to offer.

It’s blatantly obvious that these changes are either not apparent to Mrs Bush, or she feels more comfortable with the previous incarnation of the Republican Party… “Let’s all get along nicely and not rock the boat”. We witnessed what that attitude did to the party and the country. It gave us Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.

It’s ironic, then, that the one person for whom she showed utter contempt is the one that, along with others, has redirected the party and brought it back from the abyss. This aspect of the Tea Party movement is “confusing” to George H.W. Bush. This re-found preference for values over establishment seems to baffle more than just the Bush family. Recent comments by Karl Rove and Newt Gingrich, both of whom have done much for the party in its former incarnation, don’t seem to ‘get it’ either.

It would be more appropriate for the old-school types to keep their disdainful (or perhaps jealous?) comments to their mutual appreciation society meetings. Sarah Palin should not worry about those that are stuck in a lackluster past. However, it is unfair and unwarranted for some self-opinionated people that did not cut the mustard to hinder the success of the new, determined breed of politician.

“Up in the North things are looking uglier than at any time since the armistice. If we get committed in Iran/Iraq, look for the North, probably at the instigation of the North’s masters in China, to try something, possibly causing us to have to reinforce the troops there in the South now. Pure speculation I agree, but don’t forget that on June 25,1950, the last thing our military command in the Far East was looking for was the North Koreans boiling across the border between the two Koreas, destroying everything in their path.”

That was an extract from Skip’s article from April 5, 2010 (‘South Korea… Shut Up And Smile’). Well, it appears that today’s attack was not at the behest of China (as far as we know), but they sure are flexing their muscles as anticipated. About a month after the installation of Kim Jong Un as military leader and heir-in-waiting to the failing Kim Jong Il, we witnessed a show of strength as a display to the impoverished North Korean people that the family dynasty has no intention of relinquishing its power.

As usual, the North played innocent… “We didn’t fire first!”… just as they denied knowledge of the destruction of the ‘Cheonan’ and murder of forty six naval personnel. This denial continued after an independent international investigative team proved beyond doubt that the ship was sunk by a North Korean torpedo.

I knew the comments that would come from world leaders before I even heard them. “We condemn this action” is always a politically correct response from Obama and the UN, along with various other leaders who are afraid to commit themselves to any action. A comment that I found somewhat insulting to South Korea came from Russia… “We urge restraint on both sides”. Huh?! They just had two Marines killed and many more people injured by an unwarranted attack. In March, they lost forty six personnel while on a routine patrol. I think S. Korea is showing remarkable restraint, given the circumstances.

John Bolton gave his views on the situation today and, as usual, he was pretty much on the money. I was a little surprised by his ‘ultimate solution’ of reunification. I’m not saying that it could not, or will not, happen some time in the future. It just seems like ‘pie-in-the-sky’ at the present time, with two of the most disparate political and economic neighbors imaginable.

There are more pressing problems to solve right now. How many attacks will South Korea endure before it retaliates? Will we, and other western countries, go to their aid? With around 30,000 US military personnel based in South Korea, the answer is fairly obvious.

The whole situation is further complicated by the recent revelations on how very close the North is to having full nuclear capability. Some very serious decisions need to be taken now… it’s time to stow away the cliché condemnations and do something!

Rights? What Rights?

November 22, 2010

Glenn Beck is under fire from the left again. Now they are insisting that he is an anti-semite. What prompted this latest accusation? A verbal attack on Israel, perhaps? Maybe he forgot to get a coffee for Rabbi Lapin after his Fox News program last week? Uh… no.

The liberals’ latest desperate attempt at discrediting a conservative celebrity is one of the most ludicrous to date. Glenn’s frequent reports on the history and activities of George Soros has the socialists scraping the smear barrel. While it is true that Soros was born into a Jewish family, by his own admission he is a committed atheist. Furthermore, he has said he has no time for Israel or religion (unless he can make personal use of it, I’d guess!).

There’s that liberal hypocrisy thing again. The very people that are constantly criticizing Israel, to the point where they regard the construction of a thousand homes as a greater crime than the constant rocket attacks by Hamas, are now pretending to be friends of Judaism.

The next time I hear these folks publicly denouncing Ahmadinejad for his opinion that Israel should cease to exist, I might say that they do have some genuine concern. Don’t hold your breath, though.

The liberals are, or should I say were, masters of the use of race to further their aims. That ploy was exposed a long time ago, and only the Homer Simpsons of this world would still fall for these tricks. As Cass Sunstein said, “We know people are human and have some Homer Simpson in them, then there’s a lot that can be done to manipulate them.”

It’s strange that these people, who are always the first to protest at the slightest hint of rights violations against terrorists, illegal immigrants and convicted felons, are strangely silent on the subject of TSA search procedures.

Image from the website

The only group that has really spoken out at all is CAIR… no surprise there, really. While every other race and religion undergoes the humiliation of being groped (sorry, there’s no other way to describe it), minors included, the followers of the religion of peace have special dispensation to perform their own ‘pat-downs’. Maybe the DEA will allow people to perform their own ‘drug-busts’ next? Now that is irony. Followers of the cult that has instigated this whole state of affairs are now checked less thoroughly than everyone else.

A lot of supermarkets that once had ‘self-scan’ checkouts disposed of them. Some dishonest customers were packing items that they hadn’t scanned. Think about it.

I have to give credit to Hillary Clinton for her comments in a television interview, when she said that she would not want to undergo the procedures, given the choice. It’s a distancing from the Obama cold comment that they are “necessary”. It probably is necessary, for him to feel that he has one up on the American people. Make the most of your power trip, it won’t last much longer.

Absolute Outrage!

November 21, 2010

I am so angry and disgusted with the TSA’s depredations against the citizens of this country, it’s going to be very difficult to articulate without going into expletives.

We’re finding the words revolt and rebellion in our lexicon far more frequently than I’ve ever heard them used before… excepting perhaps in San Francisco’s looney-tune Haight-Ashbury hay-days, and around ‘underground’ (albeit highly promoted) meetings of the SDS (Students for a Democratic Society, a soviet-sponsored communist front group) around my own and other college campuses during the 60s and 70s, from which sprang, amongst others, those sterling individuals Bernadine Dorn, Bill Ayers and the other murderers of the Weather Underground.

The difference between then and now is that the very same nuts who had little or no understanding of the forces driving them then are the same ones who are destroying our country and our livelihoods now. They can be seen in and around major colleges and universities to this day. The usual liberal (communist) pinched faces, they’re easy to spot, just look for the gray-haired, pony-tailed and Birkenstocked creeps who would dictate to you and I how we should live. Very few of these people has ever had the experience of running anything except their mouths… which seem to be early experimentation on perpetual motion.

I’ve said before and I’ll reiterate, the best and brightest did not enter our colleges and universities during the Vietnam era. The best we had went to fight in South East Asia, where close to 60,000 gave their last full measure of devotion. Our government is now overrun with the product of those leftist schools and professors.

We have just come through the most momentous election cycle in modern American history. It is a game changer for sure and the commie rats know it.

The TSA is but an extension of the totalitarian dreams the left has harbored and worked so diligently to bring to fruition. This isn’t about safety or security. It’s about control. They may be able to BS the illegals or the welfare-dependent constituency birthed from Lyndon Johnson’s ‘Great Society’, but it didn’t fly with the rest of us.

Judging by comments and articles from around the nation there is another layer being added to the already growing rebellion across this land. Watching and hearing the screams of that three year old girl being molested by some TSA goon was enough to send me directly into orbit.

My first thought was where is that child’s father? As it turned out he was more interested in a cheap by-line for his television station than protecting his child. Come to think of it… why was her mother standing passively by, holding the baby while that sub-moron toyed with her genitals?

I’ve got some real problems with the testicular fortitude of some of our supposed ‘men’. I have a daughter. I double damn guarantee you that neither her mother nor myself would have passively stood for any of this, regardless of the consequence.

The TSA hides behind ‘security’ and ‘safety’ while they molest nuns and little kids. But, oh no! Give them an obvious Middle Eastern type and they cower and wave them through. I’ve seen it happen as have thousands of other Americans.


Charles Krauthammer wrote a superb article on this subject last week. I didn’t get it until today as I’ve been tied up on a major emergency project at one of those self same universities I described earlier in the article.

The Conservative Republican revolution is a fact now. Not even the dumbest lefty… well almost the dumbest, after all there is Barbara Boxer to consider… realizes that they have been, not partially repudiated, but completely and totally rejected by the American people.

Revolt? You betcha there’s a revolt. The TSA and its goons are on the short list with other government goon squads, and let us not forget the government-sponsored unions while we’re at it. We’re coming for you, we will defeat you at the ballot box and in the halls of government where you hide. You will not break the American people. We cannot be conquered by you or anyone else.

It’s simple really… touch my child, molest my woman and I’ll take your head off.
