    President Obama Pays Tribute to Pearl Harbor Victims – Using Picture of Himself – Again 

    Has this man ever paid tribute to anyone during his presidency without using a photo of himself?  I honestly don’t think so.  Neil Armstrong, photo of him looking at moon.  Rosa Parks, photo of him sitting on the same bus.  The man seems to be incapable of distinguishing between himself and major events in our countries history.  Oh yeah I guess that is why he updated the White House Website history section with stories of himself.  How did people vote for this narcissist twice?

    Seriously, what is wrong with you people?

    Election Play List 

    If you saw the recent repulsive ad that Lena Dunham. I’m calling it 50 shades of Primae Noctis for comparing voting to losing one’s virginity. It’s a cry for help that makes Ms. Fluke look classy.

    Recently, Mitt received a primo endorsement from Meatloaf. For conservatives and especially women, the reality of this election is a stark contrast. What we have, and what are our options? We know what we’ve had the past 4 years has been at best dysfunctional. It’s time to see other people. The courting of the GOP gave us Romney. We’re voting. We’re voting for Romney. We’re not in love, but we’re gonna do it.

    The result might be best summed up by one of his most famous tunes.
    Cue, “I want you…I want you..I need you..I need you…but there ain’t no way I’m ever gonna love you.. now don’t be sad. Don’t be sad……….’cause two out of three ain’t bad.

    Saving the President’s Vacation 

    The poor man, victim of bad luck and those meanie mean people who still insist on buying SUVs, trying to make money and eating something fried, just wants to take his family on a modest vacation by the shore and he has these whiny whiners whining about wanting to have jobs. 

    Why do they want jobs? 

    They’re on vacation right now! That’s where he wants to be! But, he’s promised to deliver a master plan, a plan to end all other plans, a plan so brilliant, it will make all those cry baby people who complained sorry they ever doubted anything he said.  Soon.  Right after his vacation….except not.  It’s a reasonable request to wait three to four more weeks.

    After all, these sorts of plans take time to craft and develop…and it’s unfair to encroach on quality time with the family when work is so very demanding and he’s done so much.   So I feel for the President.  I do. I know the burden of the crown …er sorry, Presidency, weighs heavy.  I know because he’s told me he works harder and is less appreciated than Martin Luther King, and more mocked and misunderstood than Abraham Lincoln. 

    Because I feel his pain and think he and his family deserve this time away from the maddening crowds so he can eat his waffles or ice cream or Tuscan kale or arugula in peace, I will give him a gift.  That’s right, I will personally craft for him his master plan on jobs as it will be presented post labor day.  I can even help free up that time for that speech by presenting it here.

    Here goes:

    Good afternoon, I come to you today after completing extensive research, reviewing all the options, consulting experts in the field because I’m open to all options and am serious about this.  Let me be clear, the problems our economy faces are systemic, long-term and the result of over reaching and overspending and irresponsibility by congress, and the results of reckless executive decisions made long before I took the oath of office.  

    The country has had a string of bad luck in world affairs coupled with congressional political grandstanding that refused compromise.  Combined, this mix has prolonged if not crippled all attempts I have made at recovery.   

    Let me be clear, the way I offer is hard, fair and reasonable.  It is the way to prosperity for the good of all, but it requires that those of us who have more, be more generous and understand that this is what we must do for our country. 

    I know you think like I do, that it is unjust that Wallstreet and Corporations have profits in the billions and millions, while millions are on food stamps. 

    I know you agree that it is unjust for politicians listen to the rich who can buy access, and we have to trim teachers and soldiers and policemen’s pensions, or threaten the elderly and disabled with less economic security to enrich the pockets of those who have more than they will ever need. 

    We must act.  We must change our ways and the time is now.  

    Therefore, I’m directing Congress to pass my budget, which will include a three for one tax, for every dollar spent by the federal government, we will tax three, so as to reduce the deficit through new income revenue to the treasury. 

    The bulk and blunt effect of these new taxes will be born by the wealthiest ten percent of our country, so the middle class and the poor will not be affected or injured.  

    Further, I’m asking for an excess profit cap tax, percentage based on all profit reported by any corporation.  It will be set for 20%, recaptured and used to help shore up existing assistance to the unemployed. 

    Lastly, I will ask all those in the legislator shouting about cutting the deficit and a balanced budget, to show they are serious by forfeiting their salaries and benefits.  

    Any who step forward and make such a sacrifice, will prove they mean what they say.  Anyone who doesn’t, proves they’re just in it for political points.  

    The republicans claim they care about ballancing the budget, so I will ask the leadership to restrain its members from inserting any pet projects or proposing any legislation or policies that result in pork to their own states, or create additional layers of bureaucracy or change existing law.  I will direct the Congress to only fund those projects that are critical, that save jobs.  But, we must do more.  I will demand more.

     We will create new incentives and Federal grants for companies that promote green energy and green jobs.

    There will be money allocated for college for students who want to enter into education to help in our public schools. An educated public is a working public.

    We will also improve America’s infrastructure with highways, high-speed rail and communications, like cell, satellite and high-speed internet to make sure everyone has access to the world-wide web.  Kids these days can’t get a job or get ahead without computer knowledge, and they can’t get computer knowledge without having access to computers, so we will invest in technology to give kids that leg up to the American Dream. 

    Finally, I know that a President gets credit or blame for the economy, but I want you to know that I am working as hard as I can, and that I will talk to anyone, anywhere. I am  open to any ideas that come from anywhere about how we can help grow our economy.  I’ve ridden across country and I’ve heard your frustration, I’m frustrated too.  I am.   I am!

    But change as we all know, takes time.  Phone your representatives and tell them, with their cooperation, We Can.  Yes we can.  This is the time when doubts could throw us off track.  Don’t let them make you doubt what you said we needed when you elected me to office.  Don’t let them return us to the same old same ole.  We all knew that change would be hard and tough, but now we all need to dig deep and hold on. They don’t want to have skin in the game, they want you to sit on the sidelines so they can continue to sit on their profits.  We need them to get in the game, we need them  to invest in what we’ve started.

    I invite every corporation, every investor, every American, to invest in our future as a country by being willing to give up just a little bit for their neighbor.  It is the just and right thing to do, and all of us will benefit. 

    Now, if you have any questions, I’ll just send you to our newest Job Czar. I have a tee time and I promised I wouldn’t be late. (Chuckles and leaves, no questions).

    Editor’s Note: Print, save and do a shot for each proposal that hits the mark, only promise not to operate heavy machinery for a good 10 hours afterwards.

    Video: Obama is asked about Planned Parenthood scandal 

    Jill Stanek:

    The 1st bit of news to glean from Obama’s response is he was fully aware of the scandal.

    Obama tried to minimize the sex trafficking sting as “manufactured” and only getting attention on the “blogosphere,” both claims of which are patently false. His own Dept. of Justice is now involved, after all, and the videos were repeatedly cited in GOP House testimony last week about an amendment to defund PP – which passed.

    But Obama did nothing to reassure PP beyond that. In fact, he only distanced himself from the sex trafficking sanctuary.

    Obama 1st noted that any “specific problem… should be addressed.” Slap.

    But his most intriguing statement was, “I think that Planned Parenthood in the past has done good work.”

    Past tense.

    Kathryn Jean Lopez:

    Asked about Planned Parenthood and Live Action in a Richmond, Va., news interview, Barack Obama inadvertently makes the case for defunding Planned Parenthood.

      “Well, eh, eh, you know, I will tell you, um, I think . . . that sometimes these issues get manufactured.”

      This is another way of dismissing people’s legitimate concerns as “astroturf.” If anyone knows about how to “manufacture” issues, it would be the President’s own party.

    Obama’s Tucson speech — comments? 

    Much better than I expected. What do you all think?

     
    • fuzislippers 10:39 AM on 01/13/2011 Permalink | Reply

      I agree, much better than expected. I was just watching Gibbs, though, and a couple of reporters were asking whether Obama’s comments were directed at (get this!) Sarah Palin. Gibbs deflected (in his usual mumbling bumbling way), saying that “he’d leave” those sorts of comments “to others.” So this reminded me that Obama has had a bunch of leftist bloggers and “reporters” into the WH a couple times for confabs (met with them longer than with McChrystal, if memory serves).

      Knowing what we know of Obama, I think he’s going to appear to take the high road for the next two years in the hopes that indies will forget what he’s actually like but let his minions in the media do his dirty work of tearing down the Tea Party, conservatives, and Sarah. Wouldn’t be at all surprised, actually, if it’s not all being orchestrated from the WH in “journolist” fashion.

      But then, I’m not a fan of Obama, nor of this admin, nor of the leftist hacks who’ve been spewing lies and stirring up hatred all week.

        No, it was orchestrated by the White House. They were “involved” in the planning, and that whole thing had Plough written all over it. No way was that a surprise. They had freaking T-shirts. The speech, itself, was excellent, but that doesn’t excuse the circus.

              I will give you that, he could have done something to calm it down. But, by the point he got on stage the damage was done. The person I think was the most respsonsible is the University President (or whatever his title is). He introduced Obama like it was a pep rally. Totally out of line and very strange.

      Even if the T-shirts were the college kids’ idea, the WH could have stopped it. It’s a visual that will come back to haunt him – he went to a memorial that turned out to be a pep rally. About him.

        Oh, I don’t think he was sincere either, and that will be born out in his words and actions in the coming weeks/months. He’s going to try to be “candidate Obama the uniter,” but he’s so full of himself and his role as president of the United States (notice how he never says simply “president”) that he’ll just not be able to contain his true petty, petulant, nasty self.

      I thought that the speech was tepid, but okay.

      I enjoyed the thing about feminine energy coming from the earth or something from that guy one or two in front of him. Great opening. Were the dog acts all booked up?

      The venue was totally wrong. I have no idea why Obama needed to go to Ariz. in the first place, and secondly I don’t see why they had to speak at a university. They couldn’t think of a more Obama-friendly place in the state?

      Gotta agree with Obi’s Sister. The whole thing degraded into a shallow, pro-Obama pep rally.

        lmao, that Native American “blessing” thing was just weird.

How many of us want some random religious person not of our religion/faith speaking at our memorial? That was about political correctness and “multiculturalism,” not about the victims.

    Try to imagine a pro-life Obama 

    From my Green Room post on the slaughter of unborn black babies in NYC:

    I have a dream. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if more respected black leaders and celebrities would join the fight against this suicidal/genocidal nightmare? Imagine the good that might be done by President Obama if he believed in the sanctity of life. Imagine a pro-life Michelle Obama, fighting for the survival of black babies and promoting the black family instead of haranguing us about childhood obesity. Imagine the all-powerful Oprah taking on this cause.

    Shorting Stay at Home Moms on Credit 

    The Credit Card Act was supposed to rein in eeeevil financial institutions. Now that the Federal Reserve is proposing rules based on the legislation mandating consideration of independent income rather than household income as has been the norm, stay at home moms may have to have their spouses co-sign their card applications. TWS on the WSJ article. They go on:

    This comes on the heels of another proposal by the Fed (subsequently tweaked), under which “retailers would have had to require customers to provide pay stubs and tax documents when applying for a credit card at the cash register.” Moreover, it’s par for the course. The Obama administration’s and Democratic congressional leaders’ preferred mode of legislating is to vest incredible amounts of quasi-legislative power in the hands of unelected officials (see Obamacare), who then proceed to issue legally binding “rules” that declare what Americans can or cannot do, nationwide.

    Pretty archaic and demeaning. This stuff is making me mad.

    Another unintended consequence of the Dems and Obama administration legislation–or was it intentional?

    We know NOW and their ilk consider at home moms second class citizens. Now their allies are trying to implement it.

    Rule-making without representation, another form of tyranny.

    P.S. First Lady O receives no salary, perhaps she can take up this issue–if she can tear herself away from her latest vacation. Will she have to travel with her spouse next time?

      “… mandating consideration of independent income rather than household income as has been the norm, stay at home moms may have to have their spouses co-sign their card applications.”

      This is EXACTLY one of the issues that started the feminist movement back in the 1960s. Back then a wife had to get her husband’s permission for financial activity – and we’re kinda heading back in that direction. It’s ironic since I’ve been reading columns trashing feminists lately. The current women who use that term are NOT the feminists of days gone by. The original feminists fought to expand women’s freedoms. I hope we can remember that even as we fight to retain those freedoms.

      This action by the government is reprehensible.

    If only our president had a tenth of the common sense or brains of Larry Kudlow. His exasperation with Obama’s cluelessness is palpable:

    Believe it or not, with jobs falling for four consecutive months and unemployment stubbornly high near 10 percent, President Obama is out on the campaign trail bashing businesses and promoting class warfare. Huh? Oh my gosh is he off message.

    He’s slamming the Chamber of Commerce for allegedly using foreign money in campaign ads, even though there’s not one shred of evidence of this. Huh (again)? Is the Chamber really a big election-year issue? Is it causing high unemployment?

    Thank You, President Obama 

    (Before you faint dead-away at the title of this post, bear with me.)

    Thank you, President Obama.

    Thank you for arrogance. Your dismissive tone. Your obsession with golf. Your aloofness. Your constantly mixed messages on which god/God you worship. Your elitism. Your inability to speak coherently off the cuff. Your history of corruption. Your confusion regarding American traditions. Your unpresidential behavior. Your lack of a work ethic. Your attacks against those who dare to disagree. Your purposeful weakening of this great nation. Your bowing and scraping to foreign dignitaries, including those who would kill every American if they had enough bullets.

    Thank you for proclaiming that you feel our pain, while you jet to NYC for date nights, eat fancy steaks from Japan, throw opulent parties, and vacation in places only the richest can even get a glimpse of.

    Thank you for giving us a First Lady so horrid, so ill-mannered and so terribly self-engrossed that an entire cottage industry has sprung up just to criticize her lack of fashion sense. Her antipathy to class and taste, combined with a glaring lack of gracious charm so required of any hostess (never mind heads of state), make her (and us) a laughing stock among world leaders.

    You created the firestorm over your beginnings simply by your reluctance to share your grades, dissertations, resume, vaccination record and even birth certificate. One simple gesture could have stopped it all, but you choose to seal those records, immediately heightening suspicion. Why seal them, if you (still) claim you have nothing to hide?

    You created the same current anti-government sentiment in this country that you campaigned on in 2008, but criticize now.

    You awoke the sleeping giant that is plain, ordinary America. The America that wants no part of your socialist agenda, your progressive degradation of this great nation, your lies.

    You did this. And for that, I thank you, Mr. President.

    Afghan Election Today: Women Vote 

    Early reports are mixed, some promising:

    In the Taliban stronghold of Kandahar in the south, voters ventured out in small groups despite rocket strikes and bomb blasts. One bomb targeted the convoy of Gov. Tooryalai Wesa as it drove between voting centers but no one was injured, police officer Abdul Manan said.

    Wesa still urged Kandaharis to come out and vote.

    “There’s nothing to be afraid of,” he said. “The enemy wants the election to fail, so if you want the insurgents out of your land, you’ll have to come out and vote.”

    Voters even lined up in the Zhari district, west of Kandahar city, where Taliban leader Mullah Omar’s radical Islamic movement was born 16 years ago. Hundreds of Afghan and international troops secured the area.

    And it appears some women are engaging in vote fraud:

    “The women coming here have so many cards that don’t have the stamp and are not real cards but still they are voting,” said Nazreen, a monitor for the Free and Fair Election Foundation of Afghanistan, which has dispatched observers throughout the country.

    Fake voter cards flooded into Afghanistan ahead of the balloting, but election officials had promised that poll workers were trained to spot them.

    NATO’S senior civilian representative said some fraud was expected, and that it would not necessarily undermine the vote.

    “The real issue is the scale of that and does it affect the result. And does it affect the credibility of the election, not in our eyes but in the eyes of the Afghan people,” Mark Sedwill said.

    Interesting.

    P.S. Nina Burleigh in Huffpo: A Holy War on Women:

    If anyone still doubted, or hadn’t noticed, that misogyny is the fundamental pillar on which radical Islam is based, the news that poison gas was pumped into girls’ schools in Afghanistan, likely by the Taliban, ought to confirm it.

    I’m with you, Nina.

      Nobody in the real world thinks we can turn a religion around that allows for the murder of women for almost any excuse. Only our “elite” leaders think such foolishness. As I commented over at P&P, there are no moderate Muslims, only quite ones. They all want to have their religion conquer all others, the “how” is open to most.

      If I had the power for a day, I’d wish that religion to cease to exist. In the end, it would be an overall victory for the world.

      I pretty much agree with you.

      If Islam is to be at all civilized it needs major, major reform. But these guys in charge are not reformers. They want to kill us and beat their women.

      So we have to fight them. Every day in nearly every way.

        Which guys in charge? All of Islam shouldn’t be judged by Iran and al Queda.

        There are reformers in Islam, although a better term would probably be progressives (not American political progressiveness), and these people need to be supported. The W. Bush admin. understood this and supported a number of them.

        Yes. The Bush admin. got it wrong sometimes, and were intentionally misled by others. However there was significant change in places like Bahrain, Qatar, Indonesia, Malaysia, and elsewhere. You may read about about anti-Christian attacks in places like Indonesia in the press and on websites, but the Muslim populations’ rallies for religious tolerance following these attacks and the demands for action to be taken against the attackers are not so eagerly reported.

        Obama stopped almost all of it, then ran around the world apologizing, saying we (meaning people other than himself, of course) aren’t in a position to judge or support or do pretty much anything then pity our past actions. That was absolutely devestating to both our allies (like Israel) and the Muslims that the US had been cultivating congenial relationships with.

        We have a very distorted view of Islam– a mostly de-centralized religion with more sects then Christianity. Do you judge all of Christianity by the Jehovah’s Witnesses?

        But hey, let’s just follow the course of archer52’s dreams and just wipe away the 1.5+ billion Muslims on the planet. I mean they are ALL extremists lying and infiltrating into our society. What a “victory” that would be…

      YN-

      I didn’t say I’d kill the people, only the religion. Also, just for giggles, name the Jehovah Witness group that murders children, women and babies in the name of their God to the tune of thousands and thousands. Again, do not confuse your own personal concepts of right and wrong with those of radical Muslims. It is a mistake all people make. We tend to imprint what we would do onto people who have no intention, history or desire to do what we would consider civilized.

      Accept those people for who they are and judge them by their acts. You’ll find little room for wiggle when it comes to defending their way of life. I’d wipe out that way of life. I have friends and relatives in Afghanistan as we speak. Their stories of just how retarded Islam makes the people there, in spirit, intelligence, learning, thought and actions, is stunning. Islam, in the form that we are fighting, thrives in an environment of ignorance and strives to keep the status quo. I’d stop that. It would give the people a chance to move out of the ninth century and have a chance to live free.

        archer 52: “Also, just for giggles, name the Jehovah Witness group that murders children, women and babies in the name of their God to the tune of thousands and thousands.”

        My point is not that Jehovah’s Witnesses murder children, women, and babies. Either you are intentionally misinterpreting my words, or did not read very carefully. My point then, and I’ll restate it for you, is that Islam is a very complicated religion made up various sects– much like Christianity has Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox Catholics, Baptists, Presbyterians, Lutherans, Mormons, Seventh Day Adventists, Jehovah’s Witnesses, etc.– yet you and others judge it according to very specific people in specific geographic areas espousing a very specific form of Islam and then apply to every single Muslim everywhere per your 1st comment. You go so far as to judge the religion you don’t understand as being a blight upon the planet.

        Gee, that doesn’t sound reactionary or extreme, or anything, does it?

        But since you bring up killing babies… Just for giggles why don’t you tell me how many babies are killed by Christian doctors and Christian parents in the form of abortions yearly? 1.2 million abortions in 2005 in the US– not in the world, but in the US. But I’m sure that at least 1 million of them were killed by mean Muslims, right? And hey, do you remember when Muslims killed 6 million Jewish people during WWII? Oh wait, nope– that was Christians. Or what about when the Muslims slaughtered all those Catholics during the Reformation? Oops wait. Christians again. How about that time when Muslims conquered South America and imposed their own religion on the pagan, blood sacrificing– uh… I mean native religion– of the time? Christians again. Would it be a victory for the world if Christianity would cease to exist?

        “Accept those people for who they are and judge them by their acts.” Who exactly are “those people”? All Muslims? Sounds that way. After all you said “there are no moderate Muslims, only quite [type-o "quiet" I assume] ones.”

        So I should judge all of 1.5+ billion Muslims by the acts of those few you’d like to highlight. Perhaps by those “retards,” as you put it, in Afghanistan. Why that’s sounds logical, reasonable and unbigoted. I’ll judge all Malaysians by the actions of the Pashtuns, all Indonesian ethnicities by the Tajiks, all Philippine Muslims by the Hazaras. Good idea! While I’m at it, I’ll judge all American Christians by the actions of the Copts too! It makes as much sense.

        But let’s look at Afghanistan for just a second. You wrote: “Their [friends and relatives in Afghanistan] stories of just how retarded Islam makes the people there, in spirit, intelligence, learning, thought and actions, is stunning.”

        “Retarted”? Hmmm. I’ll go ahead and give you the benefit of the doubt and take the word “retarded” as meaning backwards or unsophisticated rather than moronic or stupid. Since surely you’re not calling all 30 million people in Afghanistan stupid. Are you?

        And let’s just ignore the fact that all your information is second-hand heresay. Let’s assume that the people you hear this from are 100% correct in their observations, 100% correct in their assessments (according to some assumed universal standard of progress, I guess), and fully informed in both Afghanistan’s history and culture. I don’t believe any of that, of course, but let’s assume all of that…

        Afghanistan’s history is filled with violence. When they’re not fighting each other, they were fighting off foreign invaders. Lest we forget, the Soviets occupied the country for for 10 years (1979 – 1989), and in that time somewhere between 1 – 2 million people were killed. Following that foreign-backed militias fought over Afghanistan until the Taliban (likely backed by Pakistan) took over in 1996. The U.S. inavded in 2001. War zones are not known for developing universities and technologies. But hey, it’s not the constant warfare that’s the problem, nor is it the tribalism. It’s the religion that’s the problem! If only they were all Baptists, then everything would be better! Then maybe wou wouldn’t judge them as being “retarded” anymore. Sure, that makes sense…

        And you’re not going to give them “a chance to live free.” Be honest. You’re just going to give them a chance to live their lives in a way that you approve of. That’s all.

    In lieu of flowers… 

    The family respectfully requests:

    About 50 people attended the funeral for Don Unsworth, a northwest Georgia businessman, father, grandfather and husband.

    Described by family as lively, humorous and politically conservative, Mr. Unsworth’s newspaper obituary reflected all those qualities with the following request:

    “In lieu of flowers the family respectfully asks that donations be sent to the American Cancer Society, or to the campaign of anybody who is running against President Barack Obama in 2012.”

    “He was not really a big Obama fan,” said his daughter Donna Barnes.

    Barnes says the US Air Force veteran disliked the costly stimulus and worried about unemployment. The obituary, and the donations, were Unsworth’s family’s idea.

    “We just felt like it was the best tribute we could give to him,” said Barnes.

    “It was more like comic relief. It was his last shot,” said granddaughter MaKaylie Morris.

    Grassroots beyond the grave, somehow I think Mr. Unsworth would approve.

    Who has been talking about Obama “like a dog”? 

    The strain of failure is beginning to take its toll on our president. A strange quote from today’s speech in Milwaukee:

    “Some powerful interests who had been dominating the agenda in Washington for a very long time and they’re not always happy with me. They talk about me like a dog. That’s not in my prepared remarks, but it’s true,” he told a crowd largely consisting of union members.

    Watch the video. In front of a friendly crowd he becomes even more full of himself and starts improvising what he seems to think are witty remarks. His handlers should never let him go off-prompter. This one was just plain weird.

    And who exactly are these “powerful interests”? Not the unions, I suppose, since he’s speaking to a union crowd. Maybe he’s talking about Nancy Pelosi? Or George Soros? Maybe Michelle is mad at him? We need to get to the bottom of this.

    Hat tip: PoliPundit, who comments: “Whaaa?”

      I think it is probably the business community and Wall Street, who’ve placed their bets on a GOP takeover after 19 months of being Obama’s whipping post. Mort Zuckerman says this all the time the business community bashes Obama. Now that they’ve taken their money to the GOP Pelosi is probably having a screaming fit behind the scenes and we know that the Dems up for re-election have been hammering him to get a message on the economy. Like any narcissist Obama can’t handle the criticism and starts railing about the special interests who hate him after his massive legislative accomplishments or something.

      He evidently spent the rest of the time bashing the GOP, what a shocker that is. I don’t know if it ever dawned on the guy to do something – you know presidential – on a national holiday. He doesn’t have anything else to offer though; he is a one-trick pony.

    Stupidity And Oppression 

    In 2004, Imam Feisal Abdel Rauf published a book entitled “What Is Right With Islam Is What Is Right With America.” In that book he argued “The American political structure is Sharia compliant. For America to score even higher on the ‘Islamic’ or ‘Sharia compliance’ scale America would need to do two things. Invite the voices of all religions in shaping the nations’ practical life and allow religious communities more leeway to judge among themselves according to their own laws.”

    The truth is that the American Constitution and Sharia Law are opposite of each other. It is interesting however, how Rauf composed his statement. He did not say that Sharia is in compliance with the U.S. Constitution, but the other way around. By doing so, he wanted to establish the superiority of Sharia over the U.S. constitution. Superiority?  Are you kidding me?

    Nonie Darwish is an American woman born Muslim in Egypt who warns the West of the dangers of radical Islam and Sharia law.  She is the author of “Now They Call Me Infidel:  Why I Renounced Jihad for America, Israel, and the War on Terror” and “Cruel and Usual Punishment: The Terrifying Global Implications of Islamic Law”.

    In her post at BigPeace.com, Darwish examines a few Sharia laws in an effort to see whether Rauf is a fraud or is being truthful.  [You get three guesses and the first two don’t count.]

    The thirty-three examples she cites were decided, she says, by imams after years of interpretation of the Quran, Hadith and Mohammed’s life and asks the vital question:  what part is compliant with the U.S. Constitution?

    One law in particular, non-Muslims are not equal to Muslims and must comply to Sharia if they are to remain safe, is especially troubling.  Is this what Mayor Bloomberg and all the proponents of the Ground Zero mosque wish to convey to Americans?

    Consider this:  In Obama’s June 4, 2009 apology speech at Cairo University, he said, “I also know that Islam has always been a part of America’s story.”  Islam became part of America’s story on September 11, 2001.  Not before.

    At the conclusion of Fearless Reader’s Great Iftar Mosque speech he said, “And we can only achieve ‘liberty and justice for all’ if we live by that one rule at the heart of every religion, including Islam—that we do unto others as we would have them do unto us.”

    There is no religion that can be reduced to the Golden Rule, least of all Islam. Islam does not command its believers to do unto infidels as you would have infidels do unto you. Islam commands its followers to subdue infidels; to kill them; to reduce them to dhimmitude.

    America and its allies are engaged in a war against a terrorist movement that spans all corners of the globe. It is sparked by radical ideologues that breed hatred, oppression, and violence against all of their declared enemies.

    Sharia law must not supplant the Constitution of the United States.  This president is not a theologian and must, therefore, cease to preach to the citizens of America as though he were.

    The Messiah Finally Found A “Church Home” He Likes 

    Shortly after President Golfbags was inaugurated, NBC’s Matt Lauer asked, “why his family hasn’t found a church to attend yet in their new adopted home of Washington, D.C.”

    In his lengthy interview that aired on the Today show, as Lauer and Obama strolled down the main White House corridor, Obama blamed how he and Michelle would be “very disruptive to services,” but he’s taken advantage of how “there was a prayer circle of pastors from across the country who during the campaign would, would say a prayer for me or send a devotional.” So:

    “We’ve kept that habit up and, and it’s a wonderful group because it’s a mix of some very conservative pastors, some very liberal pastors, but all who, you know, pray for me and Michelle and, and the girls and, and I get a daily devotional on my BlackBerry which is a, is a wonderful thing.”

    To which, an impressed Lauer approved: “Its spirituality meets high-tech! That’s pretty good.”

    President Barack Hussein Obama on Friday, August 13, 2010 forcefully endorsed building a mosque near Ground Zero, saying the country’s founding principles demanded no less.

    Rep. Peter King is the first elected official to respond, with this statement:

    “President Obama is wrong. It is insensitive and uncaring for the Muslim community to build a mosque in the shadow of Ground Zero. While the Muslim community has the right to build the mosque they are abusing that right by needlessly offending so many people who have suffered so much. The right and moral thing for President Obama to have done was to urge Muslim leaders to respect the families of those who died and move their mosque away from Ground Zero. Unfortunately the President caved into political correctness.”

    Jennifer Rubin captures the sentiment of most of America with this comment:

    “Obama has shown his true sentiments now, after weeks of concealing them, on an issue of deep significance to not only the families and loved ones of 3,000 slaughtered Americans but of the vast majority of his fellow citizens. He has once again revealed himself to be divorced from the values and concerns of his countrymen. He is entirely—and to too many Americans, horridly—a creature of the left with little ability to make moral distinctions. He sympathies for the Muslim World take precedence over those, such as they are, for his fellow citizens. This is nothing short of an abomination.”

    On March 9, 2008, in an interview with New York Times’ Nicholas D. Kristof, Obama said, “…the Muslim call to prayer is “one of the prettiest sounds on earth at sunset”.

    If the Ground Zero mosque is ever built—it’s scheduled to open on the tenth anniversary of the day a hole was punched in the heart of New York City—then Fearless Reader can jaunt to the mosque on Air Force One and the Muslim World will have won its reign of terror on America.

      Fearless Reader will be there, undoubtedly, but Islam prefers that her Majestic Highness, GrandMama, and the Girls stay at home.

      I see another $350,000 European get-away in my crystal ball. The Côte d’Azur, perhaps? She’s probably already seen Cordoba.

    Obama rings Rangel’s bell 

    Turns on him. Because Barack’s so squeaky clean. Sure. So dignified. A new kind of Obama hope:

    He’s somebody who’s at the end of his career,” said Obama. “I’m sure that what he wants is to be able to end his career with dignity. And my hope is that it happens.”

    Bush ad guru and Obama admirer Mark McKinnon is less than impressed these days. It’s been two years and the blame Bush game is getting old. Now Charlie Rangel–how to explain that one.

    Is this not the Charlie Rangel our President Barack Obama thought he knew?

    The Tea Party bell is ringing. Ask not, Mr. President, for whom the bell tolls. It tolls for you.

    More. Ruby Slippers on the Rangel death panel. Nice Deb with nice graphic.

    Stanley Kurtz is back, with a book: Radical-in-Chief 

    I became a huge fan of Stanley Kurtz during the 2008 campaign. Dr. Kurtz, a painstaking, scholarly, responsible researcher, was, in my view, foremost among those happy few who dug deep into the question the liberal media struggled so very hard to ignore — Who is Barack Obama? Of course, Kurtz received the smear treatment for his efforts.

    I have wondered what he’s been up to since then. Now we know:

    I am pleased to announce that my political biography of President Obama, Radical-in-Chief: Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism, will be published on October 19 by the Threshold imprint of Simon & Schuster. Here is the Amazon page. Here is the cover:

    Given my various adventures during the last presidential campaign, it seemed best to remain discrete until now. The goal has been to minimize any possible interference with my research, which has proceeded non-stop since 2008. The book is under embargo, so I cannot detail its revelations. Today’s press release conveys the core argument, however. Here’s the text:

    Part biography, part history, part detective story, RADICAL-IN-CHIEF reveals the carefully hidden tale of Barack Obama’s political past. Stanley Kurtz, who’s research helped inject the Bill Ayers and ACORN issues into the 2008 presidential campaign, presents the results of more than two years of digging into President Obama’s radical political world. The book is filled with previously unknown information about the president’s past, tied together by a bold argument about what Obama’s deepest political convictions really are.

    RADICAL-IN-CHIEF marshals a wide array of never-before-seen evidence to establish that the president of the United States is indeed a socialist. Tracing an unbroken thread of socialist activities and political partnerships, from Obama’s youth through his community organizing days and beyond, the book confirms that the president’s harshest critics have been right about his socialism all along.

    RADICAL-IN-CHIEF also exposes the truth about community organizers–the socialist beliefs they hold and hide, and how they trained and groomed a president. Obama’s community organizer colleagues had a strategy for slowly and stealthily turning the United States into a socialist nation. The Obama administration is carrying out that strategy today.

    This book will forever change our national debate about who Barack Obama is.

    I’m excited to be able to offer this book to the public, and look forward to reentering our collective debate over the political character of the Obama administration.

    I’m sure Dr. Kurtz is fully aware of what will come his way when the book is released.

      This looks like a must-read book, thanks for calling attention to this. October 19th release date is certainly interesting.

      I am soooo happy Stanley Kurtz is back.

      He really advanced the narrative last time. Maybe this time America will pay more attention.

    • nicedeb 4:26 PM on 07/27/2010 Permalink | Reply

      I was wondering what happened to him. He’s been working on the book all this time? Hoo boy! Too bad the Journolisters are now defunct. Who’s going to coordinate the push-back?
