He Was Bareheaded

(As a snifter clink to New Years, 2011, We are Re-Posting This As Requested By Some Young Kin Of Ours---With Great Joy And Huge Hope.. It First appeared in 2004)

He Was Bareheaded That Day....

They almost called off the Inauguration.

It was an ice and snow-burdened day.

No one was warm or comfortable.
And those of us who were truly THERE, who were truly ALIVE,
cried, prophetically---at the beginning, at the center, and at the perorative ending of the inaugural address.

The man who gave the address, tan and handsome to the point of being
transcendent, was bareheaded.
Listen to John Fitzgerald Kennedy on January 20, 1961:

Vice President Johnson, Mr. Speaker, Mr. Chief Justice, President Eisenhower, Vice President Nixon, President Truman, reverend clergy, fellow citizens, we observe today not a victory of party, but a celebration of freedom—symbolizing an end, as well as a beginning—signifying renewal, as well as change. For I have
sworn before you and Almighty God the same solemn oath our forebears prescribed nearly a century and three quarters ago.

The world is very different now. For man holds in his mortal hands the power to abolish all forms of human poverty and all forms of human life. And yet the same
revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe—the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God.

We dare not forget today that we are the heirs of that first revolution. Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans—born in this century, tempered
by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient
heritage—and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this Nation has always been committed, and to which we are committed today at home and around the world.

Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.

This much we pledge—and more.

To those old allies whose cultural and spiritual origins we share, we pledge the loyalty of faithful friends. United, there is little we cannot do in a host of cooperative ventures. Divided, there is little we can do—for we dare not meet a powerful challenge at odds and split asunder.

To those new States whom we welcome to the ranks of the free, we pledge our word that one form of colonial control shall not have passed away merely to be replaced by a far more iron tyranny. We shall not always expect to find them
supporting our view. But we shall always hope to find them strongly supporting their own freedom—and to remember that, in the past, those who foolishly sought
power by riding the back of the tiger ended up inside.
To those peoples in the huts and villages across the globe struggling to break the bonds of mass misery, we pledge our best efforts to help them help themselves, for whatever period is required—not because the Communists may be
doing it, not because we seek their votes, but because it is right. If a free
society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich.

To our sister republics south of our border, we offer a special pledge—to
convert our good words into good deeds—in a new alliance for progress—to assist free men and free governments in casting off the chains of poverty. But this peaceful revolution of hope cannot become the prey of hostile powers. Let all our neighbors know that we shall join with them to oppose aggression or subversion anywhere in the Americas. And let every other power know that this Hemisphere intends to remain the master of its own house.

To that world assembly of sovereign states, the United Nations, our last best hope in an age where the instruments of war have far outpaced the instruments of peace, we renew our pledge of support—to prevent it from becoming merely a forum
for invective—to strengthen its shield of the new and the weak—and to enlarge the area in which its writ may run.

Finally, to those nations who would make themselves our adversary, we offer not a pledge but a request: that both sides begin anew the quest for peace, before the dark powers of destruction unleashed by science engulf all humanity in planned or accidental self-destruction.

We dare not tempt them with weakness. For only when our arms are sufficient beyond doubt can we be certain beyond doubt that they will never be employed.

But neither can two great and powerful groups of nations take comfort from our
present course—both sides overburdened by the cost of modern weapons, both rightly alarmed by the steady spread of the deadly atom, yet both racing to alter that uncertain balance of terror that stays the hand of mankind's final

So let us begin anew—remembering on both sides that civility is not a sign of weakness, and sincerity is always subject to proof. Let us never negotiate out of fear. But let us never fear to negotiate.

Let both sides explore what problems unite us instead of belaboring those problems which divide us.

Let both sides, for the first time, formulate serious and precise proposals for the inspection and control of arms—and bring the absolute power to destroy other nations under the absolute control of all nations.

Let both sides seek to invoke the wonders of science instead of its terrors.
Together let us explore the stars, conquer the deserts, eradicate disease, tap the ocean depths, and encourage the arts and commerce.

Let both sides unite to heed in all corners of the earth the command of
Isaiah—to "undo the heavy burdens ... and to let the oppressed go free."
And if a beachhead of cooperation may push back the jungle of suspicion, let both sides join in creating a new endeavor, not a new balance of power, but a new world of law, where the strong are just and the weak secure and the peace

All this will not be finished in the first 100 days. Nor will it be finished in
the first 1,000 days, nor in the life of this Administration, nor even perhaps in our lifetime on this planet. But let us begin.

In your hands, my fellow citizens, more than in mine, will rest the final
success or failure of our course. Since this country was founded, each
generation of Americans has been summoned to give testimony to its national loyalty. The graves of young Americans who answered the call to service surround
the globe.

Now the trumpet summons us again—not as a call to bear arms, though arms we need; not as a call to battle, though embattled we are—but a call to bear the burden of a long twilight struggle, year in and year out, "rejoicing in hope,
patient in tribulation"—a struggle against the common enemies of man: tyranny, poverty, disease, and war itself.

In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. I do not shrink from this responsibility—I welcome it. I do not believe that any of us would exchange
places with any other people or any other generation. The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this endeavor will light our country and all who serve it—and the glow from that fire can truly light the world.

And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country.
My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.
Finally, whether you are citizens of America or citizens of the world, ask of us the same high standards of strength and sacrifice which we ask of you. With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God's work must truly be our own.

(Let us pray that someone with conscience and confidence rededicates us all to the Spirit of these words in 2011 and 2012 !)

This is not the day I choose to sound what Billy Shakespeare called "alarums".

We are on the cusp of an awakening of sorts in America. November was evidence.

Now, at MY age, when I awake in the morning, the first thing I do is express my heart's firmest Gratitude... Another chance to get IT right !

Therefore, between the time you read this and the birth of a new year, join in reflecting that the Advent we remember is a celebration of the introduction of Forgiveness and Possibilities into an Earthly history bestrewn with dark Vengeance, Fear and Pessimism.

Whatever our belief system holds, we should all have room for some shining light and some suspicion that we may see better days and firmer assurance. "It" CAN get better.

I remember one time it 1945 !!!

May we all welcome our new tasks and victories.

There is a Word For This...

There is a specific word Bill Buckley had for a person making a statement which contradicts the statement being made.

If anyone remembers it, please let me know.

Because the Providence Journal, in an apt editorial, The Man Obama Most Admires, dug up a revealing quote from a New Yorker interview with the president.

It just unsettled me to an extent that none of the blather in the two "intimate" memoir love letters to himself attributed to Barrack Obama never did.

Here’s the quote:

"I’ll tell you one thing: I am a much greater political director than my political director...."

Even considering the qualities of the pusillanimous Axelrod, those words PROVE he is NOT.

All records and efforts aside, would such an arrant, arrogant Wold Class Narcissist win a second term ?

Or would he ever even be trusted ?

In ALL Circumstances...

The younger one is, the more foreign the concept of "global gratitude" is.

Although I am certain that Roman Catholic communicants come in contact with the idea earlier in their worship, I can remember almost the exact DAY, a Methodist minister, Rev. Thrailkill, intoned the words:

"Give thanks in ALL circustances...." Reason I remember is because it comes from Paul's letter to the Thessalonians, and at age six, I was MUCH more interested in a Thessalonian than I was in "thanks".

Now, eighty years later, I am convinced that this admonition will stand us all in "good stead", so to say.

It is akin to the Saints' habit of "prayer without ceasing" that gives rise to my mantra: "Have Mercy on my soul, Have mercy on my Soul, Have Mercy...(For a hundred or a thousand times under my breath, to salve the momentous pain).

Therefore, today, when so many are dispossessed, forlorn of Faith, hopeless in material IS the time for Life-gratitude.

In the beginning, Moses' childern first, then the Desert Fathers prayed prayers of thanksgiving for the fact they could FEEL their hunger, their thirst and their fear. That they could still grasp life and a limitless hope was the kernel of Faith for them.

Therefore, in this season, whether the mystery of Gratitude "in all circumstances" attracts all of us or not, we can find more to be thankful for than a drumstick, a yam pie, or pudding dressing.

Let me isolate one thing that rose in stark contrast to most of what I see going on.

It is possible for the simple generosity of one person's words to change another's very Life. This happens to me with shocking frequency. It happened yesterday.

Of course, I was waiting for it, looking for it...maybe even petitioning for it.

That is a unique exrpression of Gratitude, also. And we should all be thankful for it.

Mea Culpa & Footnotes

More than anything, we want readers and followers of the Depot to have faith in what is offered here.

With that in mnd, Let us hasten to correct a badly timed report made here that Congressman John Dingell of Michigan was defeated on November 2.

He won, in fact. He is an icon of Democrat Party seniority, as was his father before him. The Duingells have always been productive, patriotic representatives of their Michiganders and the Dingell name is on some fine legislation.


To add another nail or two to the coffin of the Democrat coffin of hegemony, at least four more House seats appear to be going to the GOP, making the total of wind 65.

Not only will this further strengthen congressional punch, the accompanying landslide victories in 690 statehouse legislatures will blunt the encroachment of Obamacare ills into many states, it will "set in stone" the flavor of congressional dustricts for the next decade, because the 2010 sensus announced before January 2011, will dictate redistricting by state legislatures. Al allegedly nonpartisan "commission" will redistrict in California and Florida.

Finally, speaking of California, the Central Valley was still canvassing votes as this was writtenMonday, Nov. 8---six days after the el;ection.

Brazil recently counted and reported 100% of its nationwide voites in less than six hours. And Brazil is not a teeny-weeny shrunken country. It has 190 million citizens, 57 per square mile compared with the United States 300 million and 83 per square mile.

As they say in Yankee Stadium...."Go Figure !"

Where It Counts ! Part II

A few important additions to oue "elections have consequences" screed.

(1) The Republicans now control more than half the state legislatures (both houses) that will do the redistricting of congressional seats. They have governors in most of those states. Even in New York, Republicans take control of the state senate.

(2) Lamar Smith, a Tevas Congressman, will chair the House Judiciary Committee, and has already warned the Obama executive departments to cease and desist shredding any documents.

(3) Darrell Issa, the California bulldog congressman who has Attorney General Eric Holder in his crosshairs, will not now be so easily rebuffed, and he and Smith may be able to get their Special Prosecutor whether anyone else likes it or not.

But the 61 House seats and six senators "tsunami" pales in importance and impact on the future when measured against the tumult that wuill result from the takeover of statehouses by the G.O.P.

For a lengthy, detailed appraisal, we are indebted to The Fix at WaPo. Here is the web address to copy-and-paste:

No one can predict what will be the short term effect on our lives and our nation of the blowout revolution by awakened patriots all over the USA. But the grand design of the collectivist "progressives" riding a ghostlike Flim-Flam Huckster to a dilution of free speech, free assembly, free political expression and freedom of personal Spiritual values---has been halted in its tracks.

All of America---or almost all--- has joined the late William F.(Bill) Buckley in standing spraddle-legged athwart the face-path of "history" and announcing "STOP" in our time.

Where it Counts !

This corner will have two very brief comments on the political upheaval of Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2010:

(1) The changes, as all good ones are in a Free Republic, are People-Driven, local and not sleazily procured.

(2) While predicted here in this unpretentious corner of the Blogosphere, the tumult was greater and will be more far reaching than we can now see.

John F. Kennedy's maternal grandfather, "Honey Fitz" Fitzgerald famously (and ungramatically) said: "All politics is local !"

No election season ever placed a surer seal on that averral than this past one.

If you note, in many places where well entrenched Democrat machines and habitual shenannigans at the site of the ballot are legend, congressional districts went Republican, because the concentration of the "people's will" was stronger and more focused and undiluted as it tends to be in a statewide election.

Only in the election of John Kasich to the governor's chair in Ohio was the outpouring fierce enough to shake the three large Democrat cities' stranglehold.

And, yes, in Illinois, Obama;'s seat went to a repubicanl Paul Kirk. But that was due to the uprising of the midstate and downstate Illinois conservatives who made a massive turnout for this midterm election. They usually do not.

Four black Tea Party candidates took congressional seats as Republicans. John Dingell, the oldest; longest- serving congressmanlost his Michigan seat to a young Tea Party upstart.

Finally, translating the groundswell of frustration with the Democrat admnistration's contemptuous disregard for mail, telephone, fax, wire and email pleas, voters in at least two states took it out on everybody on the ballot.

There is a very treasured confidante I have in Maine who told me: "We do not have a shot at Olympia Snowe or Susan Collins this year, but we are sending Paul LePage to clean out the statehouse. You watch and see""

And, sure enough, little-heralded, Governor-elect LePage of Maine was the last race called. And, the whole atate went Replublican.

Finally, there is Wisconsin, that basiopn of Politial Correctness and frivolity spewing from the sewer of Madison's univerity trappings.

Russ Feingold was defeated as senator, and the governorship, the statehouse assemly and offices ALL were captured by Republicans.

Which probably flows from the healthy way the population of the state is scattered in a lot of amall cities the size of LaCrosse, Racine, Green Bay, Superior, Black River Falls and like that. Milwaukee (with amall town character) and uppity elitist Madison have no real political pretensions.

No...The bigtime manipulators who pull in union thugs to crash the voting machines, and "lose" ballots conveniently (as in Minneapolis & St. Paul Minnesota), and the intimidating gangs cannot rule Wisconsin's people.

Or many other places in America when people refuse to sit down and shut up like a weary blue-haird spinster.

Malice Strikes Again

The Ass Press filed a story Tuesday, October 19, erroneously (as usual) reporting that Delaware U.S. Senatorial Candidate Christine O' Donnel did not know that the U.S. Constitution "separated church and state".

This was a lie. She simply questioned whether it is firmly settled constitutional intention to prevent prayers and religious history in schools, and in state and federal legislatures.

This is an historical debate that has been going on since 1802.

As a matter of fact, most citizens do not know that when the Supreme Court forbade prayer in school, it based its decision NOT on constitutional grounds, but on a letter President Thomas Jefferson wrote to some Baptists.

Here is a link to the Jefferson "Wall of Separation" letter:

Many Supreme Court Justices, Law scholars and historians believe that the main thrust of the constitutional amendment guaranteed freedom OF religion...NOT freedom FROM religion.

Any careful survey of the battles between Patrick Henry and James Madison will bear this well as the measured approach by John Marshall as a legislator and as the Chief Justice "Sculptor of America".

That Jefferson had no hand in constructing our constitution, (he was in Paris) and that he repeatedly called for its replacement or complete revision every ten years at the least, are seminal facts that have been addressed in many biographies, most notably American Sphinx.

However this corner may be accused of impertinence for repeating these truths, it will be done every time the polluted, twisted, anti-American print and TV media misrepresent historical fact in vain attempt to hijack, stifle or twist-tangle the views of any patriotic conservative voice.

Who Makin' Who Baaaad?

The Obama call-to-arms aimed at his listless followers in a Philadelphia appearance where a naked man streaked at his lectern and someone threw a book at him was:

“Now, don’t you-all make me look bad...!!!”

T.S. Eliot was right...It all ends not with a bang but a whimper.

Now if you do not think the voters in America hear and attend this stuff, let me point out that the most reliable, unbiased tracking showed him losing from two to four points in the next 23 hours.

You could actually FEEL all the Dem congresspersons cringe.

I mean, can you place this in historical perspective?

For instance:

(1) Moses, burdened with the tablets from Sinai, finding his people worshiping a gold calf...

(2) The Prophet Mohammed, preparing his followers for the slaughters at Meggido or Mecca...

(3) Henry V to his Band of Brothers before Agincourt...

(4) General Washington, General Nathaniel Greene, Colonels John Marshall and Alexander Hamilton to the Continental army at the Battle of Yorktown...

(5) General Pickett , preparing his men for the Gettysburg charge...

(6) Napoleon, prior to the retreat from Moscow....

(7) General “Nuts” McAuliffe and General Patton at Bastogne....

(8) General Stormin’ Norman Schwarzkopf just before they began “Shock & Awe”...

I just cannot see or hear any of these Giants whining and begging that their troops “Don’t Make ME Look Bad....”

What he’s saying is that it is the “fault” of the PEOPLE if he “looks bad”...that is, if he fails.

Well, I am willing to bear my part of the “blame” . As a matter of fact, I have already voted absentee.

Let’s DO it !

H'ors du Combat

We see by both Chicago fish wrappers and the Ass Press that our annointed Jackass has predicted "Hand-to-Hand Combat" if conservatives replace Dhimmies in either House of Congress.

Just what he means by this, YOU probably have a clearer idea than he has.

With a job approval rating of 42%, according to historically Democratic party-biased Gallup in Princeton; and with a TRUE unemployment rate of more than 10% according to the same friendly source, Gallup, he is stirring up a fist fight.

Is this to pardon and support the kind of activity the New Black Panthers and Louis Farrakhan call for?

Hyperbole is ONE thing. We are accustomed to having all the ills besetting us blamed on an execitive administration that has been out of legislative power for four years in Washington.

We are used to the mainstream media covering up for the sleaze and fraud of the Barney Frank and Chris Dodd playhouse.
Indeed, those vulgar creeps are the ones who delivered Democrats into their tornadic decline, under the leadership of Harry Reid in the Senate and Nancy Pelosi in the House.

But threating the people of the United States and opposition candidates with
"Hand-to-hand-combat" on the floor of the National legislature????

That's kinda heavy handed---if not, indeed suicidal--- even for a Chicago Thug.

Three more weeks of this, and there will not be enough Dems in either house for a crooked poker game.

Or a shot at Three-Card-Monte.

Autumn Hero

We will probably have to wait until after November's election to see the tedious wheels of Justice do their fine work, but the process began today, Friday, September 24, 2010 when Chjstopher Coates testified before the U.S. Civil Rights Cimmission.

Though warned by his superiors at the Obama / Holder DoJ NOT to appear, Coates told the supposedly non-partisan body how Julie Fernandez, in her role as deputy assistant U.S. Attorney General ORDERED that no more DoJ action be taken against "minority" civil rights offenders such as the New Black Panthers who wresteled, assaulted and intumidated voters in the 2008 presidential election.

This was an Heroic appearance by Coates, who had reportedly received death threats from others as well as admonitions from DoJ personnel.

You may go to Pajamas Media site, or here:
to read Coates opening testimony.

So far, in my experience, Fox News Channel has been the only mainstream media to carry this story.

C-Span was scheduled to carry the USCRC hearing.

Just to give you and idea how frightened the left is of this worm-can opening, Jerry Rivers (aka Geraldo Rivera to you un-Hip ones) has pontificated "There is no credible evidence" of Black Panther intimidation of voters.

THAT will not help Holder...Or Fernandez...Or Obama, when the November Buzzards roost.

On Gruel and Glory

Can Gruel and Glory actually trump the self centered greedy ME-ME-ME-ME mob mentality ?

Whether it was original with this writer or not, we once cobbled the thought that "History is sometimes in tumult when Time makes way for gruel and Glory."

The smug assertion by the dupes of Big Government and its "Plantation" mentality were widely quoted two years ago as saying:

"Now my mortgage will be paid...Now I gonna have all my dreams come tue..." And so on.

There was mass dazzlement by the two-beat rhythm of tthe words: "Hope" and "Change". The ensuing dance around the embers of personal responsibility was (momentarily) hypnotic.

But now we look around America and see the very ones who just KNEW there would be Utopia and New Jerusalem from Bangor to La Jolla, now are turning up at Obama's cozy talk-ins to ask him "Wha' Hoppen???!!" and to scold him "I am exhausted with defending you !"

And millions of plain citizens---all live voters and yes, some old and many unemployed--gather in memorial tribute to the patriots in Boston who dumped British tea into the harbor rather than pay taxes on it. They also raise the old Gadsden flag with the coiled rattler announcing "Don't Tread on Me."

Wild left wing socialists on television and in doomed newspapers are frightened. Without checking, they assume these crowds are racists, bigots, violent.

Honest anger at false and incompetent governance by FOUR YEARS of Democrat senate and house members and two years of blind and deaf White House bluster, however, fuel the expanding rage of heretofore placid folk.

Too late, the Handmaidens of profligacy and empty promises are realizing that the Tea Party is multiracial, peopled and fed by an educated willingness to put everything on the line so to speak.

Simply, there is a movement that is largely non-partisan, of very human sufferers who know their history and their economics better than the elite overlords of established "Conventional Wisdom".

Like saints with beggar bowls, like David facing Goliath and like the Prodigal son who rose from the swine pen---they are willing to survive on gruel for the Glory of a free society and a balanced honorable governance.

For policymaking servants who listen and who see.

T-Party Not a "Social" Deal

Dr. Charles Krauthammer took some time to try and educate his Libtard home rag, the Washington Post on the true nature and fuel of the Tea Party movement.

WaPo and all the Pro-0 leftwing media yowls and yaps frothily about the "hayeful" and "racist" Tea Partiers (who began their pilgrimage in...CHICAGO !

"It is about governance, not social issues," Dr K said and went on to build an architecturally unassailable foundation for his thesis.

But they'll continue to choose to not hear and in not learning, they will end in the dustbin.

And, by "governance" you can plainly see that Democrat control of the national legiuslature for FOUR years has been as detrimental as Obama's two year occupancy of the executive.

Here is the sort of thing that unsettles and angers many who get their news from sources other than the Ass Press, the alphabet TV nets and the Ivory Tower elite dying print press:

Palestinian Authority members of the "Peace Talks" have told U.S. reresentatives of Obama ---particularly SoS Hillary Clinton--- that if they do not "get a Palestinian State this time" there will be war.

PA prime minister Abbas has also indicated to Clinton and Obama that there will be "armed resistance" to any recognotion of Israel as a Jewish State".

You have not heard this on your TV nerws yet ? You have not seen it in the local auto-and-jobs-wanted fish wrapper?

Links are too numerous to list, but try GOOGLING "Haaretz" or
"Jerusalem Post"...or maybe, even "UK Telegraph".

Suppression of threatening news and diplomatic failure are typical of what Dr. Krauthammer means when he spotlights governance as the Tea Party tipping point.

Will November 2 bee soon enough ?

A Kenyan and An Indonesian Went Into a Bar.....

One of the latest revelations of some very sharp Internet Blogger-Investigators is that much of the "stimulus" money supposed to create jobs, went into the toilet, so-to-speak.

There have been many horrible examples---none of which has made any of the "alphabet" news programs or more than two daily newspapers.

Thursday, it was revealed on the Internet (I Hate The that the Obama-Geithner-Pelosi-Reid administration gave $700,000 to one academic to create software that would "invent" jokes.

Well...NOTHING is as serious as hilarity. So I am putting in my bid for some of the "stimulus" Mutha Lode:

"Take my President......PLEASE !

Reaping the Harvest....

It cannot have been completely unnoticed by readers of this space that we are hostile to "recreational" mind altering substances.

Wednesday, September 8, 2010 had three stories availavble on the Internet that probably missed the ken of your favorite talking head or wilting daily rag.

First one was an item on Drudge Report that a senior aide to Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) was arrested on Capitol Hill, on carrying and concealing marijuana charges putting a dent in the supply of Happy Hemp for our sugust legislators and their staff huffers. Marcus Stanley is a high profile economics researcher for Boxer.

This came too late to curb the excesses of a deceased senator's leeches and their regularly scheduled "Daze Days", open secret "Weed Welcome" celebration for senators' helpers who needed their Ganja to dream up policy.

Then, from London there was the story of rather famous USB banker Neil McCormick, who ran away to Hong Kong last year for refuge. He was a "derivitive" expert.

At a "Weclome Home Neil" gala, he was seen to be wandering in circles, mumbling to himself:" y' can't DO this to me...You canm't..." And a short time later was found to have leaped, fallen or been pushed out a window, landing 60 feet below on a rubble heap.

Mr. McCormick, according to friends and journalists, had been an habitual snorter of cocaine since his days at Oxford.

Finally, there is "Moonbeam" Jerry Brown, candidate for California Governor, whose surreal past is a lengthy filigree of pipe dreams and chimeras.

He announced Wednesday that he has a foolproof plan to cure the Golden State's economic ills !

He told voters it just cannot MISS!, adding:

"I will tell you about it after the election......"

Take it from a former drug-treatment professional (for 20 years) these three stories DO have common ground. And "recreational" mind-altering chemicals are NOT "benign" and NOT without their malignant consequences.

Our society is sickened with them.

You Got Some Sex Tapes ?

The prism through which the loony left wing sees this country has never been more discretely and glaringly presented than on Monday morning after the Restore Honor weekend.

It was not surprizing to see the alphabet networks and the "cowardly news network" shrink the half million horde to "several thousand" and to see frothy mouthed crazies refer to "bigots" and "Jesus Freaks"...(Though His name was not dropped.)

So, the dope-burdened scofflaw liberals have come around to HEARING "Jesus" when anyone says "God". Well that's a START.

But...WAIT, the Huffinton Post, ultra-statist-left-liberal propaganda blog early Monday carried a solicitation that offered $100,000 to anyone who brings forth a sex tape or other material involving Glann Beck that will destroy him.

Free's "Kristin" exposed the post and within an hour it had been taken down by HuffPo !

But, not before the conspirator pimp was identified as reflecting the URL: http://www.huffington)-friedlander/100000-for-glenn-becks-se_b_698724.html.

Kristin reports the author of the threat is one Beau Friedlander, ex-Editor-in-Chief of Air America. Here is Friedlander's text as it was published om;ine:

"It is time to pop the tea baggers' favorite baloon and with THAT in mind, I hereby offer to negotiate a $100,000 payday for the person who will come forward with a sex tape or phone record or anything else that succeeds in removing Glenn Beck from the public foprever..."

Friedlander goes on and on, pleading poverty but guaranteeing he can "broker the deal" with the red money-cow.

Someone scared Ariana and her editors with the knowledge that this is equal to exrtortion, a signed death threat and obvious fodder for the FBI.

So they are crazed. This is an assoiciate of Minnestota Senator Al Franken, isn't it...Air America ?

But a salient point that all thoughtful culture warrors must face is this: In the World-With-A-World where these ciminally obsessed troglodytes mingle with one another like doomed locusts..DO THEY ALL HAVE THEIR VERY OWN SEX TAPES AND CASSETTES ???!!!

Do they expect sane, conservatives whom they paint as constipated and repressed to have them also ?

THIS is THEIR America, perfectly perverted !

Can't you feel those November polling sites a-pulling at you even now as September is born ?

And...oh, yes. The talking heads and potty-paper pinkos are making fun of the Hallowed Half-Million for leaving the Mall, Reflecting pool, and both monumen areas CLEANER than when the crowd came to make History !

Eye Opener For Couric & Co.

We'd wager the folks at the Corrupt Broadcasting System (CBS) thought they would pull a fast one and hammer away.

But, at about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday night they had to release the poll. The blogosphere had wind of it and the deteriorating network had to publish it. That time of night, you WILL admit is a weird time to release a nationwide poll.

The CBS NEWS nationwide poll of voters found that 72% believe it is not "APPROPRIATE" to build a Mohammedan / Muslim / Islamic mosque at Ground Zero where Islamic extremist terrorists killed 3,000 on September 11, 2001.

Eighteen per cent (18%) queried said it would be "appropriate".


That word "appropriate" alone damns the story, which begins by saying "a majority" in the lede instead of "Three quarters"....

Two questions that will NEVER be answered by CBS:

(1) Why did they not let Katie Couric "break" this SHOCKING news at 6:30 p.m.??!!

(2) Why did they feel they had to EXPLAIN that those who hated the idea probably had a "negative attitude" toward Muslims?? Why use two paragraphs to make such an obvious point?

Probably because they fear Americans know a Spiritual Pursuit (AKA "religion") when they see one.

Worshipping Pedophilia and Death do not compute, Spiritually.

Oh ! So THAT is Why.....

Folks who read this screed ocassionally know that we have beat the drums loudly and constantly about US AG Eric Holder's refusal to prosecute the New Black Panthers for intimidating voters at Missouri and Pennsylvania polls.

Now we know why he and the Department of Justice are dragging their feet. They do not speak the same alanguage. (Go to:

Problem is, Holder and the DoJ and DEA agents are ALL elite. They do not understand anything spoken by the "street" culture.

On Monday, Aug. 23, 2010, they advertised for "translators" well versed in "Ebonics" to aid in deciphering recordings and other material that is too complex for the Harvard / Yale / Princeton / Columbia / Duke / Berkeley legal eagles to unravel and act upon.

We been telling you these bozos are clueless elite, removed from the real world and even antipatetic to plain Americans.

Now they are admitting they are so hoity-toity they can't understand patois that anyone exposed to MTV or VH1 can grasp.

What a waste of money paying these Ivory Tower wusses.

Apocalyptic Tickles

You few but blessed readers of the Depot DO expect me to keep you updated on the temblors that presage "the end" do you not ?

Even though one of them ocurred on Fox Sunday, no one has realized its importance so far.

Beginning with THAT one: National Public Radio's Juan Williams (pale, freckled African-American of apparent Hottentot heritage, announced that the reason Missouri rejected Obamacare in a statewide referendum 71% to 29% was just a bunch oof old white pwople.

He got away with it, too.

What if Bill Kristol had replied, in equally idiotic illogic that the only reason Obama was elected in 2008 was "crazy young black people" ??? We would STILL be drowning in PeeCee ink, crocodile tears and whatever tingled Chrissy Mattjews' leg.

A wise lady once rpeated to me over the years: "Some people just don't know HOW to think !"

And we are at their mercy.

The other thing is surely the beginning of SOME kind of "end".

A celebrated "gay" blogger named John Aravosis, noted for "outing" homosexuals who preferred the "closet" on his Amercablog site, announced Tuesday that he and his friend "Joe" want the White House to return the $43,000 they raised for the Obama campaign in 2008. ( )

John and Joe also expressed some chagrin, if not outright regret, at havinf done a lot of "dirty work" for the campaign two years ago.

This is just an admission of Chicago Way tactics which we now know, after 20 months to be de rigeur for this administration / outfit / gang . Whatever....

Do you wonder, as I do, if the Teachers' Union is surreptitiously instructing America's K-12 younksters in SEIU or New Black Panther extortion, blackmail, thuggery and dare I say....O No! That wopuld be going to far.

Meanwhile, a note to John and Joe: Don't hold your...uh...breath.

The Mfisi Syndrome

The second book I read by Ernest Hemingway was a First Edition of The Green Hills of Africa, a lively account of a safari he and his wife, Pauline took in the 1920's.

It was a seminal experience for me because I re-read the book twice in between readings of, The Sun Also Rises, and For Whom the Bel Tolls (which was published when I was 15).

There were many things in the non-fiction account of DOD ("Dear Ol’ Dad") and POM ("Poor Ol’ Mom") on romantic Safari under the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro.

This book contained "Papa’s" first foray into literary criticism.

In talking to an Austrian hunter named Sandisky, Hemingway made a trenchant appraisal of "New York Writers" that I have used a hundred times to characterize "libruhls", socialists, whore columnists and incestuous Manhattan-Washington umbilical parasites.

"They are", he said, "like earthworms trapped in a sealed Mason Jar, trying to draw life, meaning and sustenance from one another...doomed to dessiccate and fade on the wind like ashes when released to the real world...."

But that did not end Hemingway’s store of vital bestiaries.

I remember his delight at the elegant Masai and their use of the wondrous poetry of Swahili. Doesn’t "Simba" just sculpt a lion ?

And he went into great detail describing how hyenas, the Mfisi, would chew and devour their own entrails when wounded by a swipe from a lioness or leopard or cheetah at a natural "kill".

Mfisi, like all Masai Swahili is spiritually onamotopoetic, It sounds as ugly and reprehensible as the animal. Swahili floods over one unrivaled in English but for only a few words (liquid...sheen...waning...victory).

Well, the mfisi, pulling out and chewing his own guts once wounded, is the image of the Democrat loyalists this Dog Day summer.

Obama is revealed to have secretly lobbied for compassionate release of the Lockerbie bomber with the Scots, while presenting the opposite attitude to you.

Biden has slid from hailing the summer of recovery to mumbling that "it could be worse."

And, because the people of the United States elected a "black" man president, those same people are all branded "racist" if they disagree with ANY of his administration’s policies. Or if they despise the Congress!

Everything, in finality, is Bush’s fault. Nineteen months is not long enough for ownership.

You can feel the froth and frenzy. A lawmaker in Glendale, California, holding a public meeting in a public library had city police officers remove the press from the builoding.

Attorney general Eric Holder refuses to prosecute New Black Panther thugs who intimidated voters with truncheons and profanity in Pennsylvania in 2008. When confronted, a civil rights commission member said :"There is no evidence" although a video of the thugs threatening and harassing voters has been seen by, probably 100 million citizens on television and the internet.

Now, the situation is so "frozen" every word the Democrat legions say is an attack on self.

The implosion will be complete when they find NY Congressman Charles Rangel, (House Ways and Means boos, who writes ALL the tax legislation) "innocent" of corruption charges leveled by the bipartisan ethics committee.

This COULD will be the final act of immolation by the Mfisi !!!

Trot Out The "I" Word ???

This wont take long.

Every time someonem in a national political administration misbheaves---as the president did Wednesday by appointuing a health care rationing Czar outside of Congressional approval---some idiot pundit screams impeachment threats.

But Wednesday, in a session of the supposedly Non-Political United States Civil Rights Commission, a smoking gun was produced.

J. Christian Adams, who resigned his Justice Department post under Eric Hoilder delivered the explosion.

The Bush Administration filed charges against three "New Black Panther Partry" members who asaulted and intimidated voters at a Pennsylvania polling place in November, 2008.

Eric Holder's first act as U.S. attorney general was to withdraw and "dust bin" the case.

Adams finally resigned over the AG's decision and branded it as "racist".

Now he has taken it to a higher, less combative arena, and has named names of all who suppressed and criticized .
Members of the USCRC are old travelers down the racist and bigot glutted trail.

I am calling on all my friends and readers of theseb screeds to join me (AND the USCRC) to see if we, as a nation, really place character above skin color as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. implored.

Members of the USCRC say they will invesigate briskly. If they DO,
someone will be punished....someday.

You Just Don't Understand

All you people making fun of Nancy Pelosi's latest Pearl of Wisdom, lissen UP !

You are out of date. Old Fashioned. Behind the curve....PASSE' , in fact.

"The quickest, surest way to create jobs is to provide more funding for unemployment compensation !!!"

That's what she said. So, What ?!

This is 2010. Look at the record. Things have changed.

Nowadays, the surest way to defeat a senate candidate is to make him secretary of the Navy...Or a national security board member.

In 2010, the surest way to give everybody health care is to pass legislation that makes it impossible fot anyone to have health insurance.

In 2010, the way to save the "housing market" and provide a home for everyone is to not require anyone to qualify for a real estate loan. This also helps vitalize banks.

In 2010, the way the Attorney General protects all citizens is to deep-six any punishment of racist things who assault and intimidate voters at polling places.

In 2010, the most certain way to protect America from Islamofascist killers is to read them their Miranda rights.

And, this year, the Department of Homeland Secutity is protecting our citizens by concentrating on uprooting "militias" and maligning Tea Party

And even over in Afghanistan, the U.S. military "Rules of Engagement" prohibit a soldier from firing his wepon unless he is attacked by a person with a plainly visible firearm.

Also, in 2010, they give special decorations in Afghanistan for "Courageous Restraint" under fire.

You knuckle-draggers are sooooo 20th Century !

Get WITH it, people ! Join the PeeCee Movement that hid an enemy monster nicely for a decade so the animal could slaughter and maim scores of helpless and unarmed GIs at Fort Hood, Texas.

Come on down on the ZERO side of the Rabbit Hole with Alice and Hunpty Dumpty and the Red Queen!

We May, Indeed, Be Doomed by Our Elected....

We had hoped by now to be able to "move forward" with the JobGate and Extortion scandals involving high White House officials and trading money cow positions for political favors.

Only reasion we cannot is that the U.S. Attorney General and the White House counsel are refusing Congressman Darrek Issa's requests for informatuion and communication records. The Office of Special Counsel is silent so far.

But that will likely change after November congressional elections.

Meanwhile,. let us take a look at the sad state of public representation we are in...everywhere.

Here ( is a startling mid-America wakeup call.

Ms. Peggy West is a Wisconsin Obama stalwart politician; a Democrat member of the Milwaukee, WI board of county supervisors, duly elected and sworn.

SHE does not even know where Ariziona IS, but she calls for all Americans to "boycott" the state of Arizona because its legiuslature enacted and Governor Brewer signed a new law empowering ALL Arizona police and peace officers to ask suspected illegal alien border-crossers for photo identification. The law encourages deportation of illegals thus identified.

Ms. West cannot understand why Arizona needs such a law. She says she could understand a state like Texas toyung with such a tactic "because Texas and Mexico share a border..."

Well, New Mexico and California (also border states) in addition to "boycotts" of Arizona are screraming for Obama to sue Arizona and kill the law.

More of the illegals identified and NOT yet identified are fleeing to Caliofoprnia and New Mexico than back to old Mexico.

Can Peggy West's Wisconsin and Milwaukee be far off their future track ?

Issa Goes For the Jug

Our little corner of the Blogosphere will waste no time in getting the word out that Congressman Darrell Issa has asked the United States Office of Special Counsel to open an investigation of two denizens of the murky White House: Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and his deputy Jim Messina.

You may check the story from The Hill here:

Emanuel, you remember, sent his former boss, ex-president Bill Clinton to get former rear admiral Bobby Sestak to quit his challenge of Senator Allen Specter in Pennsylvania. Messinna Emailed and begged Andy Roimanoff not to run for Mike Bennet;sseat in Colorado, mentioning THREE jobs.

Issa's call for counsel will not appear on your local fishwrapper front page.

Until now, the OSC has been regarded as a sort of SUPER Inspector General force, to protect Whistleblowers and abused bureaucrats.

But, an altogether appropriate OSC investigation will surprise craven sycophant media typoes as well as White House bullies and echoes.

Among the specific duties assigned to the OSC are to investigate:

* Attempts to coerce the political activity of any person.

* Attempts toInfluence anyone to withdraw from any competition...

* Offering of unauthorised prefrence or advantage to anyone.

You can check the OSC webpagere:
Darrel Issa was not playing in the manure pile when brains (and tenacity) were passed out. Having been turned down by the Justice department (Eric Holder) and handed a warm blivet by the WH counsel ...which Issa absolutely knew would be the case, he has produced some law that he has researched and THEY may NOT have.

Go back and note that phrase: "any person".

Pass the popcorn, Rolando. This Issa man reminds me of a turkle I knew a while back in the Satilla River swamp.

A Slippery "A"-Kick

Sure, promising those jobs to candidates NOT to run in Pennsylvania and Coloirado was illegal.

But when the adoring press turns on its darlings at 1600 Pennsy;vania Avenue inside the D.C. Beltway and shines the high beams on "LEGAL" slime, it gives me goosepimples.

Andrew Malcolm of the Los Angeles Times weaves all the Chicago Way strings and reins into a whip with which to punsh the BP-chummy Obama cadres amid the oil spill mess:

Obama's Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel lived rent-free in an apartment owned by Stanley Greenberg, of GCS, the firm that "re-branded" BP into the "Jolly-Green" giant of the petroleum industry. (The "C" is Jim Carville and the "S" is Bob Shrum, John Kerry's manager in 2004.

No rent, no taxes, right ? Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, who skated on a similar bump, can take care of it.

You are not supposed to be able to keep all this straight. It's the Chicago Way. All legal. Cleanest, most transparent White House operation in HISTORY . It sez rat cheer ! many millions of dollars did GCS guide into the 2008 Democrat campaign ? Some is on record.

Now, under these circumstances, who is going to kick WHOSE a$$ ??

E Mails Were From the White House

In answer to a couple of excited comments from readers, let me say loudly and clearly:

Do not expect U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to abort his protection of the New Black Panther Party felons who bungled their attack on a free election in 2008, to press a Special Prosecutor investigation of "JobGate".

Slobber Bobby Gibbs has successfully stonewalled inquiries so far by airily defining the apparent attempted briberies as low-key, discussions by White House staffers with two candidates the White House wanted OUT of competition for senate seats this year.

In one case, former rear admiral Bob Sestak, now a congressman running for the senate from Pennsylvania was offered a "non-job" by his former boss, ex-president Bill Clinton, whereby he could serve on a security advisory board to the White House.

Funny (read that as peculiar) things. (1) The job paid nothing, AND (2) Sestak would not have been eligible for it anyway, if he kept his day job as a congressman.

Now, we have another fact that moves all this job-trading-and-trafficking into a certain actionable area

Andrew Romanoff, running in the Democrat primary in Colorado against incumbent Senatoir Bennett (Obama's choice) says he had THREE jobs dangled before him by deputy White House Chief of Staff Jim Messina.

Until now, both Romanoff and press conduit Gibbs framed the talks as non-promising, non-guaranteeing casual phone calls.

But there was an E Mail, too! The sending address wasa redacted when it was revealed, allowing the ever-sycophatic left leaning media to assume it was sent from a political site.

It WAS, after all, political in nature, right ?

But now it is reported Romanoff admits the E Mail was from a White House account.

Let me just say here, that catapults thewhole JobGate inquiry into another legal sphere.

But, to drown in redundancy... further investigation and adjudication is in suspension and abeyance until, maybe, 2011.

"Counsel" is the Magic Word

Late Breaking Bulletin: Congressmen Darrel Issa and Lamar Smith have set a June 9 deadline for the White House to supply them with a slew of documents relating to COS Rahm Emanuel and former POTUS Bill Clinton offerring Rep. Joe Sestrak a job to quit his race for the senate. They implicate Sesrtak's brother, Richard, and accuse the White House of "tampering of evidence, witness tampering and evasion of the legal process” for dispatching Clinton to offer Sestak a spot on a presidential intelligence advisory board. " according to a pro-democrat blogger at:

Just get a load of Robert Gibbs (definitely NOT "glibs" ) , responding to
(I could NOT use the word "andwering" ) reporters' questions as to why it took the White House soooo long to explain the job offer to Joe Sestak if he would not run for the senate.

As one of my favorite web sites, says, when a White House mouthpiece says "counsel", one must just shudder and duck.

As you will note in this video clip,,
that word is always accompanied by cold flopsweat from the mouthpiece (in this case, Gibbs).

If the I.H.T.M. wesite had not registered SESTAKGATE as a trademark, I would use it feely here. It will doubtless go into the public domain when the "other party" has control of the national legislature next year.

Meanwile, remember ! The corruption trial of disgraced former Democratic Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich begins Thursday, June 4. One of his "defenses", according to court documents is that fellow ChicagoWay votaries Barrack Obama and Rahm Emanuel tried to "make" him name another special "ChicagoWay" person to Obama's senate seat.

Blago, the Chicago Sun Times quotes court papers saying, complained that they did not even offer him anything.

Get out the popcorn.

"Has This Law EVER Been Enforced ????"

Those are the words reportedly uttered defensively, squirmingly, by either a suckup media maven OR a White House denizen when "the statute" was produced.

On TV, David Gregory and others averred that the WH memo on Sestak's bribe offer "showed it was not criminal". The NYSlimes and WaPo both chimed in that whatever Rahm Emanuel, Bill Clinton and Joe Sestak "discussed", it did not "rise" to a felonious level.

But, browsing the internet, I found two Obama voters, Mike Lee and Dr. Linda Monk, who produced law:

18 U.S.C. § 600 — Promise of employment or other benefit for political activity
Whoever, directly or indirectly, promises any employment, position, compensation, contract, appointment, or other benefit, provided for or made possible in whole or in part by any Act of Congress, or any special consideration in obtaining any such benefit, to any person as consideration, favor, or reward for any political activity or for the support of or opposition to any candidate or any political party in connection with any general or special election to any political office, or in connection with any primary election or political convention or caucus held to select candidates for any political office, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.

That is the same law that Pennsylvania mugwump Sen. Alan Specter (the victim of all this) pointed out and quoted to Andrea Mitchell on ABC News back in MARCH.

And here we are in JUNE!!!

And the law does not require menetary bribes "of value". Slick Willie Clinton to the contrary notwithstanding, the law IS what it IS.

Hat tip to Linda Monk and Mike Lee, at

Remember, the cover-up is ALWAYS nastier than the original stench.

Tawdry Tattered Lies Tend to Fray And Unravel

We may not ever have this opportunity again to relay a scandalous meltdownin high places, so we exploit it.

We are aging swiftly, y'knw ?

Ed Lasky at the American Thinker (, my second favorite Blog, had an intersting scooop Saturday.

That job that ex-POTUS W.J. Clinton (aka Bubba,akaSlickWillie) offered Congressman Joe Sestak to retire from his senatorial bid against Arlen Specter, is a sort-of, kinda will-o-th'-wisp.

First, George Soros' ex-mouthpiece Bob Bauer, now deputy chief of staff in the White House and Counsel said it was an honorary job without remuneration.

Then the New York Times leaked that the job was a position on the President's Advisory Board on National Security and Intelligence.

Todays revelation, in Lasky's blog is that Rep. Sestak could not have been appointed to that board legally as long as he was a government employee: a Pennsylnavia congressman !

According to multiple surveyors of the federal statutes involved, that board is made up altogether of academics, trhink-tank members, authors, ex-diplomats and former spooks and NO government employees are eligible.

Our D.C. Beltway elite, upper echelon BRAINS just cannot get their stories straight.

But, they may be faced with that mission impossible before a Special Prosecutor.....Someday...Maybe after November ?

What is "Deniability" ???

Well, THAT'S differunt, Huh?

I mean, if it was William Jefferson Clinton who offered Joe Sestak a federal job and it ws a Non-Paying job in the Obama administration not to run against Senator Arlen Specter, that THAT makes everything Hunky-Dory. Right ?

What kind of "DENIABILITY" does that provide. These ex-Soros mouthpieces like Bob Bauer and ChicagoWay finaglers like Rahm Emanuel ?

They are just too subtle for me.

In the courtroom, or the Court of the Senate, the weight of archival legal deniability runs a helluva scale.

There is "technical" deniability. There is "relative" deniability. There is "personal" deniability. There is....

Well, how about TRANSPARENT deniability? That is what the president promised when he was orating with his teleprompters in the Campaign of '08.

Friday afternoon, all the discussions between the Sestak senatorial campaing in Pennsylvania and the White House were being sifted through; routed through, and filtered through Rep. Sestak's brother.

Would you wager that he does not even KNOW Slick Willie ?! (aka .Bubba).

We're talking a whole LOT of layers of deniability here folks.

Washington Post writers are rsuhing to whitewash it all.

And 35 years ago, Bob Wooward and Carl Bernstein stood against the whole of Creation to dig out the Slimy truth hbidden in the "deniability"of the many-faced and layered cover up of Watergate.

Where is the Hero of 2010 ?

Shudda Seen It Comin'....

It was bound to happen.

You got a dumbaxe like Robert Gibbs as mouthpiece . You got a veep who can NOT think when his voice is noising. You got a chief of staff that makes Dickens' Fagin look like Tinkerbelle and a deputy chief of staff from George Soros' payroll.

Then you duck the press, vacation, hide, feint the media, stroke the anchors and pundits with sweet nothings and do not hold a press conference for 339 days.

That is a recipe...NO, a PRESCRIPTION for the ABYSS!!!

Richard Nixon never saw the day.

Hey! We have THREE big name Democrat woohoos saying the White House tried to BRIBE them to fiddle an election or a choice for high legislative office. Two of them are candidates. First, Andy Romanoff of Colorado accused Obama's deputy chief of staff, Bob Bauer of offering a cabinet position to him if he would withdraw from his Senate race. Now you have Joe Seestak who ended Sen. Arlen "Janus" Specter's political career last week claiming (three times) that "the white House" offered him a lucrative post not to run.

And, Gee, you gotta throw Blago in there. Disgraced former Illinois governor Rod Blagogevich has said he was importuned by the White House to name their choice to succeed Obama.

That;s a helluva Hat Trick, y' know ?
Sure beats Valerie Plame and Bob Novak for sausage. The hilarious tipoff is Stonewall Gibbs, telling his White Houise media mice that he was beyond the Beltway somewhere when those talks went on.

I can remember when Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein would have stretched this story out for at least a month. Michelle Malkin has it all in one column on

You didn't think Jim Carville was raising all that noise about the oil spill because it was threatening the Louisina town that gave him his last name, did you?
Naw...he was just switching shells, flashing cards...drawing attention away from what MAY be..... COULD be... grist for a Senate Trial.

Bribing folks to jimmy elections is a High Crime and much more serious than a "misdemeanor".

We Are Playing "Let's Pretend"

Europe may be falling apart, melting slowly under the burden of its "Sperm-to-the Worm" entitlement socialism, but its wire service news is still exhaustive.

We had to dig into the Agence-France Presse budget to find the bitter, lethal call-to-death aimed at ALL Muslim soldiers in the United States Army from the foul mouth of Anwar al-Awlaqi.(

Awlaqi has issued his fatwah in his role as American AND Yemeni citizen. He was reportedly born in Las Cruces, New Mexico where his father studied agriculture. Awlaqi (the younger) attended colege in Colorado and at George Washington University. He never completed a doctorate or any advanced Islamic university scholarship, but he poses as an "Imam" for his al-Qaeda purposes. According to Wikipedia, mainstream Muslims consider him an "untutored nutcase".

However, where Eric Holder, the U.S. Attorney General, the AssPress and the American media ALL refer to Awlaqi's two agents of Death as "alleged", "accused" or "charged and presumed innocent", Awlaqi freely refers to the "Heroic accomplishments" of Col. (Dr.) Nisal at Fort Hood Texas and Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the botched "underwear Christmas bomber" in Detroit. Sure, they did it, he says.

Awlaqi bosts of the fear he has created in the United Strates through his training and inspiring these terrorists.

This worshipper of death and purveyor of terror paints his trainees / devotees with all the treappings of their exploits.

But we still refer to them as "alleged" miscreants. AG Holder is fastidious in "Mirandizing" them...protecting their rights.

I say they are assassins and spys nestled in our bosom. I say they should be treated the same way General George Washington treated Major John Andre' when he uncovered the Benedict Arnold-Andre' conspiracy and defection.

Washington summarily hanged the number one bon-vivant of espionage.

This tippytoe quest for "diversity", "non-aggressive response" and appeasement will destroy us all if it obtains much longer.

In Yemen, Afghanistan and the Kush, they laugh at us.

Lies and Bluebottle Flies

Never in my memory have so many prominent people been so desperate to mislead the citizens of the United States about so many things.

A very brainy friend of mine with an upscale MBA degree and an expansive background in business comments that "they are just preoccupied with being ‘cool’—to the point of deriding any lasting intellectual allegiance to absolutes like "good" and "evil".

Or....maybe...Truth and Lies ???

Here are a few recent examples.

(1) When the Hutaree nine were arrested on charges of Sedition and threatenng the U.S. government, they were painted as frothy-mouthed knuckle draggers, dangerous racaist killers. But the federal agent embedded with them, when on the witness stand could not repeat any terrorist or racist threat by them, or recount any plan they had, and so the judge released them on bond !

(2) Presidential press secretary Robert Gibbs, on May 24, told a crush of newsmen that the Obama administration could see no reason to change anything in view of the oil rig explosion and resultant oil spill that killed 11. Yet, the president, Big Sis Napolitano and the administration chorus, on Sunday, April 2, repeated the mantra at least 16 times on TV "we have been ahead of the curve on the spill since Day One !"

(3) Finally, administration toadies, and especially their sycophantic follower, NY Mayor Mike Bloomberg (on Katie Couric’s CBS show) reacting to the Times Square bomb car, blamed a disgruntled Tea Party white racist. Bloomberg said: The failed bomber ...probably... upset about his mortgage or against the Obamacare plan...

As this is written, at least two Pakistanis in Karachi (and maybe eight) have been arrested by U.S. security agents for complicity with the confessed terrorist, Faizal Shahzad, who attained U.S. citizenship within the last year. (So much for CAIR and No-Profiling !!)

Other than the pattern of plain intentional lying and misleading, is there another pattern here ?

My MBA says "they’re jyst trying to be ‘cool’ like Obama..."

I say it’s murkier than that: Do anything, say anything, twist and torture facts and even bend laws to make anyone who disagrees with the administration ZEITGEIST a "dangerous extremist". Big Sis Napolitano announced this from the onset of her tenancy at Homeland Security. She said Americ’s main threat is not from foreigners (she never uses the "T" word) but rather from "native extremist zealots".

No matter that going back as far as Bobby Kennedy;’s assassin, ALL the terrorism in this country (yes, inclusing the OKC bombing) has had the infusion of Islamic fascist terror.

But just as the national origin of a huge percentage of the murderers, rapists, assaulters and killers-by-clunker in Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and California MUST be overlooked in the name of "diversity" and "political correctness", also must out security be compromised by looking the other way, so as not to be be branded "biased" by cleaning up festering cankers.

Why was Faizal not on the watch list, if he trained and traveled with known terrorists ?

Look around. Upon what pile of what do we always find Lies and Lies and Blue Bottle Flies ?

Layers upon Layers

All we can try to do here is to widen the dissemination of information that your nightly news and daily rags fail to give you. A teeny bit at a time, there is soooooo much.

Here, though, is an interesting tidbit.

According to the American Spectator's "PROWLER" the bureaucratic skulduggery is an equal opportunity deal within the Beltway Labyrinth, even into Kat Sibelieus' Health and Human Services domain.

Just last weekend, HHS number crunchers came up with the startling "news" that private-policy health insured will pay many thousands more for their protection under Obamacare.

This was often "mentioned" by opponents of the legislation, and dismissed as "scare-mongering" by the President, Speaker Pelosi, Senator Reid and others.

Now, post-passage, the HHS and Sibelius joined the "Scare-Mongerers".

But wait....An undercover mole whistleblowing inside the sprawling entrails of HHS tells The Spectator that the accountants made this report three weeks before the legislation passed. (

Check it out. This and manymore revelations will be forthcoming after you boot these opaque bumblers from Congress.

Even with their lapdog media suckups, the Left minions hide facts and try to obfuscate when truth is revealed.

Small California idiot ideologe Henry Waxman is still wiping egg and manure from his face and hair after stomping his little footsies in a hissy-fit when U.S. corporations started filing expectations of up to $2 billion in losses due to Obamacare implementation.

Waxman, nor any other Democrat has pointed out that the company conptrollers were simply obeying the federal (SEC) Sarbanes-Moxley Law, which Waxman shrilly supported when it was enacted.

Alphabet metworks, the AssPress and daily newspapers (which lost another nine per cent of circulation in the last three months) will not supply this sort of information.

When the "Stars" Align...It's Fun !

Without even being "pressed", there are two things we will admit we are absolutely obsessed about:

(1) People who spout off about history when they do not know what they are talking about.

(2) The "Old" dinosaur media slickers who include a pinko, left wing bleeding heart poison pill in every "news" presentation and it morphs into gaffe.

When there occurs a nexus between these breathtaking events, there are all kinds of explosions. Eyes become virtual eggs (though ours are disabled); a huge burst of guffaws emerges from the belly, and the heart bursts with "Gotcha" Gratitude to the Deity of Justice.

On Tuesday, perusing one of our favorite Internet Blog sites, Publius Forum, ( we came across a story about the great old newspaper, The Boston Herald, pulling a boner that amounted to actually, soiling its own nest.

They were re-enacting the Battle of Lexington, where the militia, armed with guns largely held together with baling wire, defeated British "Red Coat" regulars, with "the shot heard 'round the world".

Except it wasn't.

That shot, was fired in the Battle of Concord, where Ralph Waldo Emerson later lived and wrote those words for a memorial re-enactment of THAT battle.

Only way it could have been more delicious is if it had been the NYSlimes-owned paper, the Globe, that fouled the neighborhood.

Even more terrible was the Uh-Oh by Cokie Roberts, well known left liberal interviwer, and daughter of two extremely powerful and savvy Democrat Congresscritters, Hale Bogga andhis widow, Lindy Boggs . Cokie is also the wife of a very bright news correpondent, Steve Roberts who was with her....

When she likened the internment of Japanese in California prison camps following the Pearl Harbor attack December 7, 1941 to the worst of immigrant treatment horrors.

But the TRUTH IS, y' see, all those internees were United States citizens...Nisei, as they called themselves. Many of them fought for the USA in Europe. We know this because we were 16 then and glued to the Philco.

One wishes to have been there at Concord, too. Or Breed's Hill. Or, yes !even better, Yorktown !

Ignorance is so sad in all our elitist "betterrs". It's a shame to giggle.

Bubba & the Brain-Dead

On the day Pew, the most respected, unbiased and traditionally accurate public opinion survey of the American people reports that 80 percent of us distrust our government completely,( ex-president Bill Clinton says dissent is "as threatening as the OKC bombing.

And a national newsmagazine with plummeting circulation and very few pages (TIME) calls Sara Palin and Tea Partiers "seditious".

The feeling here is that both Bubba and the rag are, at worst, dissembling and venal and at best, irrelevant.

The word "sedition" in the OED, is defined as more "separate" or "severed-from", and if 80% of Americans are disaffected from
"the Gubmint", then they just do not share in the Beltway Conventional Wisdom.

Since there has been a book published, "The Third Terrorist", by an NBC investigative reporter that documents the presence of one Hussein abd Hussaini, one of Saddam's Republican Guards embedded in America, in the Ryder truck with Timothy McVeigh, I cannot understand Clinton's eagerness to bring THAT up.

It may be that these clueless left-wing ideologues read nothing but the NY Times and WaPo and are so uninformed they do not understand that the Tea Party folks ARE AMERICA.

They have certainly forgotten that their demigod Thomas Jefferson campaigned on a platform that claimed "The Tree of Liberty must be frequently fertilized with the blood of free patriots..."

Irrelevance can become a self-indulgence...a soft futon, say.

But when lying malice morphs into blind idee-fixe accompanied by echolalia, aren't the men in white coats in order ?

Idiot Waxman Takes Cover...

This is just a "GOTCHA" update on doctrinaire collectivist California congressman Henry Waxman's "Petard".

He is hoist on it.

Remember when this blog brought news that he set up a "show trial" hearing For April 24 at which je was going to pummel and punish executives who predicted billions in dollar losses prompting maybe critical job loss from passage of Obamacare?

Well the DC Examiner reports that the cross-examination of the CEO collection is off the schedule ( !!

The Spirit of Cato and I have mixed feelings about this. First thought is "good enuff FOR the knee-jerk leftwinger caught with his mouth open..."

Second thought: We'd like to have heard the people at AT&T, Verizon, Catepillar, John Deere and many, many other EMPLOYERS OF HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS explain how the new Obamacare will cost theemployers of millions of workers a total of billions in new expenses and more threatened payroll shrinkage.

Why should the socialist dummies be spared some cold water reality until next November ???

It is really pathetic how the Left repeatedly cranks up mouth and voice while brain is dormant and disengaged.

Waxman is just the prime example by which none of the rest EVER learn.

White House Wants Accounting Fraud ?

Maybe I just do not understand the introduction of George Orwell's "Newspeak" to the politico-economic discourse in Obama's America.

Recently, this corner of the web pointed out that Rep. Henry Waxman was threatening and extorting several large U.S. companies because they were complying with Security and Exchange Commission rules by "warning"of accounting "writedowns": they were initiating in expectation of "hits" from Obamacare.

These anticipated liabilities for AT&T, Cattepillar, Deere, and others were in the $1.5 billion range. Since then others have announced similar action, among them, Verizon, with nearly a nother $1 billion projected debit.

Now, Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke has attacked the corporations.

For obeyinmg the securities law.

Now we are back where we began this whole economic slide. Remember Enron Corporation ? The sort of shabby "hide-the-pea-under-another- shell" accounting that Enron treateded as de rigieur is what Locke and the administration seems to be calling for.

Is this the rule for accounting practices now in government ? Woulkd the General Accountability Office or the Congressional Budget Office do this as a regular thing ?

Are we going to have a Waxman-and-Locke push for "hide the truth or else"???!!!

Just asking.....

Heads-Up...OR, BOHICA....Whatever....

It is hilarious that the new unemploymet figures will NOT be released on Aril 1 (April Fools Day) but on Friday, April 2.

This may have something to do with the fact that they predicted a "pickup" of 50,000 new jobs in March.

Preliminary reports Wednesday, March 31, indicated a LOSS of at least 23,000.

I cannot help but believe some of these layoffs accompanied the large-scale employers' finding it necessary to write down losses to be incurred under Obamacare, in fulfilling benefits promises to employees...past and present.

Boeing ($150 million) joined AT&T ($1 billion), Deere Inc.,($150 million) Cattepillar, and several other large employers in declaring large cororate exense expectations (writedowns) causded by compliance with Obamacare mandates.

All of these businesses would not be faithful to investors (mutuals and middle class 401Ks) unless they considered winnowing the work force expenditure, where possible.

Therefore, all Americans should attend the employment figures every month and ask the honest reporters at the Wall Streeet Journal, Forbes and Bloomberg:


Especially when "factory orders" are reported increasing, and trade attitudes relaxing.

Maybe Congressman Henry Waxman will find out at his punitive "hearings". But I would not bet the farm. I wager he will "blink". He does not WANT to know the truth.

Incidentally...Has anyone GOT a "farm" any more ???!!!

Pay Attention..It's Not Just Tea Party Howls !

Many of us tried to warn. Who listened?

Over Saturday and Sunday, several major employers in the United States announced that as a result of punishment and expense in the Obamacare legislatin, they would be forced to write down a total of one and a half billion dollars ($1,500,000,000.00) in order to comply with Security and Exchange Commission Rules.

And, immediately, that stellar left-coast congressman Henry Waxman (just a tad pinker than Castro) annouced punitive "show trials" for the offenders.

The companies faced with dire economic consequences that the CBO, (Congressional Budget Office) failed to address in its "analysis" are: AT&T, Catepillar, Deere, 3-M, Valero Energy, and AK Steel.

Verizon was reportedly preparinmg its "writedown" announcement and will join the other employers at the guillotine-cum-inquisition.

Waxman, who has probably never sweated at manual labor in his life, is just trying to threaten, throttle and blackmail wealth-producers who heretofore provided helth care and prescriptin drug aid for a million hard working, producing families.

You will not read about this unless you subscribe to the Journal, Bloomberg wire service or Forbes magazine. The AssPress will pass.

Until, that is, the socialist demagopgues begin trying to cast the business accountants as "racist" and "anti-immigrant" and "obstructionists".

Like the Tea Party coalition.

So, these producers of wealth who provide paychecks and security for as many families as the present socialist dominated economy will alow...They will be painted as villians by leftwing harangue because they are attempting to protect the investments---and JOBS---of middlel class Americans.

The CBO kinda "hid" from the entire economic cost to the nation.

So Congress will stand the messenger against the wall...and FIRE !

Bias of The Hive--The Left's Propellant

In answer to my missive containing H.L. Mencken's 1935 warning that legislators had at that jucture evolved into pawns of pressure groups and no longer listened to constituents, my best friend west of the Rockies said:

"It is just Human Nature..."

Waaaal... Yassss, Ol' Buddy---if you mean the nature of the bribed or otherwise subsumed reportorial and post-modern "journalists"...which include not one H.L. Mencken.

HE was that way as a cub reporter on the Baltimore Sun.

So was I, and Roy Howard and Merriman Smith. And David Brinkley. And Leo Soroka. And Inez Robb. And Howard Handleman...I could go on. But they ALL worked prior to the death of JFK..."When Camelot and innocence died..." according to the collectivist "Hive" who do not even admit that Castro had him killed...

I am not very temperate in this. I worked at a wirte service when David did and when Smith reigned. Also Joe Davis from Valdosta and Lee Fuhrman and Sam Cox in Atlanta.

There are no journalists any more.

The only people I can trust are disenchanted former democrat speech writers like Dr. Charles Krauthammer and Dr. George Will and two giants of academe , Dr. Walter Williams and Dr. Thomas Sowell.
They ALL are like Arthur Koestler, Nabokov and Solzhenitsyn....survivors of the crucible of Baal.

When Brit Hume quit, that was the last reporter not warped, twisted.. gone. Welcome to showboz as news

Only the bloggers like Andy Breitbart and Ed Morrissey, and a few others (Debbie Schussel and Kimberly Strassel come to mind) are believeable. James Taranto, maybe, does some digging and zots a few liars for the Wall Street Journal (which, incidentally now has passed ALL dailies in circulation---and probably ad lineage).

Politoco's marionettes are in the tank. Mort Kondrake has descended into biased mock reporting.

Susan Estritch and Camille Paglia (neither a "reporter") are distaff Demonsthenes compared to most of the drugged scarlet-lettered MSM types.

Now...Human Nature has NEVER been too great. There is always a lag...Like..two years later..."Oooops!" WhahdideyeDO???!

Take Simon Peter the Fisherman frinstance...: "Me? Hell No! I never saw that feller befo in mah LIFE !!!"

Lordy no. I lost my illusions about Human Nature when I read the greatest book ever written by ANY American (and maybe by anyone except Cervantes)...Huckleberry Finn....I was ten or eleven and I had humans pegged from then on. I was never very sure about myself or my kinfolks after reading Huckleberry Finn. Now at 85, after one rebirth in Spirit and another in Policy, and after reading it (Twain's masterpiece) three or four more times and Don Quixote twice (one last year) I am positively convinced.

We mortal humans swing like spirit-pendulums, between the Heavens and excremental Nadir.

And we do not spend a lot of time midway.No "status" or "stasis", see ?!

Check with the kid on the raft and the old geezer wearing a dungpot for a hat.

Ignorance and a Mural

Come with us into the heart and soul of a daily newspaper in 2010, as journalism slips into the randpm mire--the "city room" where 10% of the staff has just been cut.

Our investigator has a slick new print of Joe Rosenthal's famous photograph of seven U.S. Marines raising the Stars and Stripes on Suribachi, the volcanic ash mountain on Iwo Jima.

This was the act that signaled to the world that Japan's World War II effort was in vain.

No image from that war caught so much attention, and no image in that war is better known throughout the world. It is on a U.S. postage stamp.

It used to appear regularly in textbooks. Entire photojotnalism COURSES have been "built " on it.

Now the "journalists" are asked to identify what is happening and where it happened.

Andrew Breitbart carried the story and photographs on his news website Tuesday night:

One of the modern neshawks properly says: "It';s World War Two I think..."

"Oh, yes" another intones, "It;s D-Day in France somewhere..."

Follow the link to the story.

The whole discussion led our intrepid investigator to a student painted mural splashed on a wall adjacent to a high school that mimicked the Rosenthal photograph.

But instead of Old Glory, the vaguely uniformed central characters in the image are rasing a...what IS it ??? Oh, Now I see...

It is a brand spanking new WINDMILL !

Like the ones Teddy Kennedy would NOT allow them to "plant" at a "wind farm" near The Kennedy Compound at Cape Cod.

The kind of windmill that NOAA uses on the weather web site to indicate windy forecasts.

Al Gore's prescription to cure America's dependence on petroleum.

Welcome to the wussification of American Grandeur, the culmination of third rate education in nexus with lazy political correctness.

Honest tears are appropriate.

Schadenfreude ? Or Gotterdammerung ?

Whirling around in this ancient brain-pan is a huge question that readers of this corner might want to ponder also.

IF...Obamacare passees and gets signed into law and the Dow and NASDAQ tank back to 5,000 and 500 respectively, what will the reaction of the clueless megalomaniacs be ?

? Or, Gotterdammerung ?

Will the conspirers and liars dance jigs and do intricate gavottes over the prostrate Wall Street entrepreneurs and lowly 401K holders ?

Or will they shrug their collective arrogant shoulders with hollow chortles and sink ,or SLINK, (more slowly) into the Autumn ooze of Western civilization ".

I can hear Robinson Jeffers singing his litany to the Big Sur cypress survivors in the subtle hypocrisy of a Pacific Dawn:

"...Be in nothing so moderate as in thy love of "man", clever servant and insufferable Master.... THERE is the trap that catches noblest Spirits !That caught, and killled, they say, God when He walked the earth...."

Scary and Deplorable

If I may, with humility, allow me to just parse this for you. It took me 36 hours to cool off after the first shock.

The AssPress carried a story Saturday out of Teheran, Iran allegedly written by someone whose name translates into "Allah is Great" in English averring that the USA "official VERSION" of Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center is "a fabrication and a lie".


That, notwithstanding the fact that CNN showed the second plane hitting the second tower for millions (billions ?) of world TV watchers.

The authority for that statement, quoted by the AssPress, which emphasized the words "U.S. official version" was of course, Moomoo Imadinnerjacket, the lunatic Persian president.

Then on Sunday, another International News Media Giant, Al Jazeera, in reporting that Iraq citizens dismissed Baathist terrorist bombings that killed 38 to vote freely and innumerably are now "CONDEMNED to Democracy...."

(My capitals for emphasis added in both cases.)

Here we can isolate the situation that obtains on our little blue marble of a planet.

Two tyrannical news-gathering organizations are spewing toxic nonsense and spurning a responsible analytical report to kiss political arse.

And, no matter whether you live in Doha,Qatar or Denver / Kansas City, it's deplorable...and scary.

Hall Of Famer Agonistes

Any normal person with a bank account or a piggy bank would have shared my reaction.

Here was a contemporary of mine, a fellow I had admired since he was 23 and I was 30, and whom I still admire, being trashed by the left wing media as an obstructionist in the U.S. Senate.

All Jim Bumming was doing was what William F. Buckley Jr. used to exhort ALL of us to do: "Stand athwart History’s intended path and say "STOP".

Bunning, who starred in both major leagues as a right handed pitcher for the Tigers, Phillies and Dodgers, was blocking the body's consideration of a $50 billion spending bill.

Even though it was a dribble in the ocean of deficit debt this congress and administration is piling on our descendants, and even though it extended a portion of unemployment benefits, Bunning was more like Jimmy Stewart in Mister Smith Goes to Washington that he was like, say a Malaprop-clueless Barbara Boxer.

Yet many of his Republican senatorial colleagues and ALL the liberal mainstream media characterized him as a comic figure.

Shuddering at the approaching chimera of a half-Trillion dollar Obamacare frosting on the fallen cake of ne’er-do-well governance , it is difficult for this observer to criticize the strike-thrower from Kentucy.

Bunning is retiring. He will soon be 80. But even though he is the one senator to take the opportunity to say "WAKE UP ! ENOUGH IS TOO MUCH", and even though 30 Republicans approved the $50 billion "pittance" in deficit spending, I still find it bizarre that one editorial writer in southern California and this post are the only applause I have found for Senator Bunning.

The Hall of Famer fared better on the mound. I remember him winning 19 games three years in a row for the Phillies.

But he made some deficit deniers nervous. I wish him well; I wish, too, that he had managed a filibuster collapse (just mildly) like Jimmy Stewart.

Would that have shaken the doctrinaire left liberal media out of their profligate trance?

Maybe not...but as Carl Sandburg famously said: "The People, YES !!!"

Will His Addiction Affect History ?

This is not the first time that it has been posted here that The UK Telegraph is the best newspaper in the English language.

Late Sunday, the crack journalists there reported that U.S. Navy physicians who gave President Obama his first physical exam since his inauguration asked him to stop smoking and put the brakes on alcohol consumption.

You will NOT rtead this on your front page...OR see it on the alphabet TV news rants.

So here's a Link

May not be important,of course. Time, Newsweek and People will not carry it or will bury it. TMZ might get a word in.

We've had a lot of advice from the top two in the White House about our "intake". That pair should practice what they preach.

But, then, they have a heavy burden. They're in an unfamiliar environment where folks expect some modicum of similarity with what one says and what one does.

Charley Rangel, William Jefferson and all the bankers are watching.

Fiscal Integrity's Voice : Ryan

The well-informed media in the UK know him better than the people in the United States: Congressman Paul Ryan, a Wisconsin Prevublican from Janesville.

They judged him ninth (9th) in importance among United States conservative "Leaders". They do this better than any of the lefty American journalists, being removed and objective.

He is certainly a magnificent thinker and elucidator.

As a member of the Wayd and Means committee in the Housem from which ALL spending originates, and as the premier budget expert who can silence Barney Frank and seize the spotlight from President Obama, Ryan stole the "show" at Blair House Thursday and stunned the "room" as well as some very feet-in-cement pundits.

Here's a sample:

Ryan has repeatedly said he is not a 2012 candidate for president. At 30, he has six terma in the House under his belt and just relishes his preoccupation with the federal budget and its crushing effect on this and future generations. He is a serious deficit fighter with answers: To entielements, even, to security expenditures, to healthcare's balooning costs.

Not an Ivory Tower type nor an Ivy Leaguer, he was educated in Janesville and at Ohio's Miami Unversity. In the Heartland.

We will do well to draw him to further nationwide attention. He has no ulterior motives. He just loves the United States and its children. He has three young ones.

And, thank Eternity, he is obsessed with trimming those numbers the Congressional Budget Office keeps throwing around and AT us. He can catch even the CBO in a mistake.

Listen to him and make up your own mind.

And watch Obama's face.

Nothing's Broken....They're Just Senseless

Frothing his spittle as usual, Massachusetts Democrat congressman Barney Fwank petulantly whined to a pet reporter a few days ago that:

“Washington is “bwoken” !

It would be waspishly witty to fake misunderstanding and murmur “Yasss, We ARE BROKE !”

But it’s not a giggle. Here we have the maestro of the Muddle...the moneystrings of the Nation who legislated free home construction for millions of unqualified home loan applicants while he sashayed into the sunset with his employee-boytoy, whining because his dreams are crumbling or melting around him.

It’s the same, old, left wing, liberal-“progressive” whimper.

When the “Contract for America” wiped out his Democratic majority in 1994, Bill Clinton and his wife moaned that “the system is broken !”

Yet, master politician that he was, Clinton snatched victory from the furnace of defeat, negotiating “welfare reform”, his premiere legacy and the only signal retreat from entitlement spending in history.

There were, THEN, responsible lawmakers who believed in the process--the give-and-take "sausage factory"---the journey, if you will !

But these doctrinaire Marxist socialist types of 2010 are a different breed. They take their marching orders from the profane Rahm-it-Thru Emanuel, the president’s chief of staff, and, as epitomized by Widdle Fwankie, when they are stymied or stalled, they squat on the pity pot and cry foul-havoc.

Even the president fell prey to the litany.

And all of this gnashing of teeth and tantrum-teetering is caused by one special election that returned “The Kennedy” senatorial seat to the people of Massachusetts when Scott Brown was elected there.

You only hear the cry “Washington (The System) is Broken” when popular opinion overtakes and obliterates conniving and conspiracy and the “earmarks”, pet projects and swollen udders of taxpayers milk are threatened with shrinkage and the extraction of the teats.

So, when you hear some U.S. legislator, pundit, talking head or professor yawping about “Washington” or “the System” being broken...

You can be sure that YOU will soon not be as “broke” as you have been, that the tax cutters and budget shrinkers are taking power from the irresponsible and ignorant.

But it IS up to you to keep the shrill rising, to its final silence. At the ballot box-cum-polling place near you.
