The Pinheads And The Patriots.

May 4, 2010

Firstly, apologies to Bill O’Reilly for borrowing one of his catch phrases, but it seems so appropriate for this article. Faisal Shahzad, a ‘naturalized’ American, has been arrested for the attempted terrorist attack in Times Square. It is not clear at this time to which organization he is linked, although he was recently a visitor to Pakistan where, according to reports, he has a wife.

This is the second time within five months that a devastating attack has failed, principally due to the ineptitude of the terrorist, a pinhead of the first degree. If the situation was not so serious it would be quite comical – a terrorist using the wrong kind of fertilizer. Jocularity aside, we must realize that, as at Christmas 2009,  we were again lucky. We should not underestimate the determination and resources of the enemy based on these amateurish attempts. They will try again, that much is certain.

The left, rather than praising those who helped to avert a possible disaster and condemn the guilty, seem to be more disappointed that it was not the plot of an extremist right-wing American. Huffington Post’s Louis Klarevas had this to say: “On Monday, while Americans were fixated on the hunt for and subsequent arrest of Faisal Shahzad for his alleged role in the Times Square bomb plot, an equally important terrorism-related story that was breaking in Detroit went relatively unnoticed”.

Of course, he was referring to the release of the Hutaree members. Equally important, Mr. Klarevas? While nut-jobs like them can possibly be a danger to the public, their actions had got no further than talk. Of course, the left would probably argue that thinking something and doing it amount to the same thing. After all, they invented the thought police. While there are car bomb attacks by those with questionable links and violence  by pro-illegal immigrant supporters, the left are espousing the dangers of the Tea Parties. They really should lay off whatever they are taking.

Duane Jackson, who was the first to spot trouble and raise the alarm in the Times Square incident, was interviewed by Shepard Smith yesterday. I don’t know about anyone else, but I got a feel-good factor from Mr. Jackson. His words radiated American spirit. On the one side, you have a ‘naturalized’ citizen who attempts to destroy and maim, on the other you have this wonderful guy who is obviously so proud of being American and the freedom it represents. His face lit up at the mention of his military service.

To those who quickly responded to a dangerous situation which resulted in the arrest of the perpetrator, including New York’s finest and all the other agencies involved, we thank you for your service. God bless you all.

Administration’s Delusional Obsession.

March 17, 2010

Bill O’Reilly: “President Obama, if you try to pass this bill through the backdoor, all hell will break loose in this country“. Obama is desperate. He is desperate as only a despot can be when his great and grandiose schemes begin to unwind… when his betrayals become so blatant and so numerous as to be impossible to hide… when his lies, to cover lies, to cover more lies, become obvious to even the most gullible… when the treachery becomes so unsavory that erstwhile colleagues head for the exits.

Just ask Israel. Obama, in spirit if not in fact, is responsible for the uprising on the West Bank by his unwarranted interference in internal Israeli affairs, taking sides with Hamas as rioting breaks out in and around Jerusalem. Former (deposed) Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haneya had called for a new intifada back on February 20, 2010. The Obama White House has been attacking Israel over the decision to go ahead with the construction of some 1600 townhouses at Ramat Shlomo. I don’t see Obama telling Syria, Lebanon or Iran what, how, or whether or not to build on their own sovereign land… unless of course you would wish to count his tacit support for Iran’s nuclear aspirations. Remember, this man has no scruples whatsoever!

Israeli police officers arrest a Palestinian rioter in Jerusalem.

Israel is in a very precarious position, with Hamas looking to ratchet up tensions on the West Bank, Hizballah in Lebanon with a reported arsenal of 45,000 missiles or rockets and special assault troops in training, and Syria threatening to target all Israeli cities supported by Iran, and an American President more than willing to betray an historic alliance, even threatening not to resupply Israel in the event that hostilities break out… the occurrence of which is becoming more likely than not.

This is the face of betrayal. This is the face of Barack Hussein Obama. This is the same betrayal which is being played out against the American people, the radical face of this government. This nascent tyranny cannot be hidden any longer.

This is an administration and Democrat Congress willing to forego the oaths they swore to the Constitution and the people of this country before God. We have shut down the White House and Capitol switchboards with our protests. The ever-delusional House Madam claims that these were all due to “pro” health care calls. One Representative said his office received over 400 phone calls… of this number, nine were “Pro” Obama care calls.
Obama, you’d best listen to O’Reilly.

More John McCain? Remember McCain-Feingold… Shamnesty.

January 27, 2010

Does anyone out there seriously think we need six more years of John McCain’s RINO deal-making with the very people who are trying to steal our freedoms? McCain, coming off of his failed Presidential bid, has garnered the support of some fellow RINOs in the party such as Florida Governor Charlie Crist, in payment of political favors received, and Sarah Palin, I imagine for much the same reason.

I wish she’d reconsider. I’m beginning to think that she may need to go back and re-tool her political science and history credentials, given her glaring inability to field Bill O’Reilly’s questions on their recent interview. Don’t get me wrong, I like Sarah Palin and see her as a potential superstar in the Conservative political movement. But if she can’t get past O’Reilly, who after all was simply reiterating criticisms and questions that had already been posited, she’d have one hell of a time on the national political stage and in particular a 2012 presidential bid.

John McCain - CBS 'Face The Nation' Jan24, 2010

Her support for McCain may prove a liability in the eyes of Conservatives, and not a few Independents, who view John McCain as being far too liberal on critical issues facing this country. There are far too many people like myself who remember one of McCain’s more enduring political liabilities, the 2002 McCain-Feingold Act, thankfully largely overturned by a recent Supreme Court decision.
All leftist media bleating and ‘soft money’ blather aside, this bill was nothing more than a direct assault on the FIRST AMENDMENT of our Constitution.

ANY act that bridles or abridges the right of free speech, whether for an individual, a group of individuals, a club, company, corporation or union, is a direct violation of the First Amendment of our Constitution. That McCain was willing to sell the Constitution he SWORE to defend down the river for short term political gain says worlds about him.

Another McCain super liability, one which arguably may have tipped the balance in costing him the support of Conservatives and Independents, was his support for the McCain-Kennedy Comprehensive Amnesty Bill. McCain was always at the forefront of those who stated that ‘WE HAD TO’ have illegal aliens in this country to do the work that AMERICANS wouldn’t do. Voters remembered an ill-conceived statement in front of a blue-collar audience that Americans couldn’t work in the lettuce fields. He foolishly challenged, “You can’t do it my friend”.

The entire illegal alien question is the silent ‘third rail’ of American politics. The left wants illegals for a super welfare-class of guaranteed Democrat voters. Conversely, business sees them as a continuing source of low cost labor. AMERICAN CITIZENS, including most HISPANICS, see them as a drag on the economy, on social services, on the criminal justice system, on education and on the sovereignty of the nation. That’s what McCain is remembered for.

Then there was the ‘GANG OF FOURTEEN’ in which McCain supported the Democrats in sustaining judicial filibusters. Thumbing his nose and then sticking it in the eye of Conservatives to boot. His oft-touted ‘maverick’ status which brought him the attention and plaudits of the liberal press did little to endear him to us.
With a record like this one wonders why the citizens of Arizona continued to return him to the Senate term after term?

There is the propensity of all voters to return incumbents to office however illogical that may seem. In John McCain’s case there is his status as a genuine VietNam war hero. His jet fighter was shot down over North VietNam, he was captured and was severely brutalized and tortured while a POW. No one, least of all me, a Marine Veteran, would dishonor that. His politics however are a different matter.

J.D. Hayworth

McCain may be challenged by a solid conservative, former Representative J.D. Hayworth, who has not actually declared at this time. McCain’s people are in a positive sweat at this and are pulling out all the stops to try and discredit Hayworth. This alone would have a tendency to make me want to support him. With a rock-solid Conservative philosophy on all of the issues that are dear to
Americans and Arizonians, Hayworth stands a good chance of defeating McCain.
As a Conservative, if Hayworth declares I’m going to throw my support behind him. I urge you all to investigate his record and background as I have and support him as well.
