12-29-09 The Weekly Claw

The Crawfish hopes all of y’all had a very blessed Christmas, and wishes a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year to ya, even if the Democrats want to ruin all prosperity and health in our nation.

Every single news and sports network in America is doing their annual retrospectives this week, but many of them are doing retrospectives of the DECADE. This truly shows how atrocious the American education system is, since the decade does not end for another year. All decades are based on the Gregorian calendar, which has the A.D. years beginning with the birth of Jesus. The year of Jesus’ birth is 1 A.D., which means the first decade was years 1-10. Decades and millennia ALWAYS end with a year ending in 0. We had this argument 10 years ago, when all of the morons of the world celebrated the end of the 2nd Millennium with the arrival of Y2K instead of with the end of the 2000th year.

The Hopenhagen Conference is over, and how does Mother Nature send a message? She gives Dallas, TX,
its first white Christmas in over 80 years. Two-thirds of the country had snow on the ground for the holiday. So who still believes in the fraud known as Glo-Bull Warming?

ClimateGate isn’t the only instance of fraud in the pursuit of radical environmentalism. The Glo-Bull Warming scam artists now have the US Department of Agriculture as a co-conspirator. The computer models forecasting the results of climate change legislation supported by The Chosen One showed that the US would lose 59,000,000 acres of farmland as it would be more lucrative for farmers to plant forests than food crops. This isn’t good, so
Agriculture Secretary Vilsack has ordered his staff to change the computer model.

We almost had another episode of what The Chosen One’s Administration calls “man-caused disasters” on Christmas day, as a
Nigerian member of Al Qaeda tried to detonate an explosive on a flight from Amsterdam to Detroit. How will the Democrats try to explain this one away without mentioning Islamic terrorism? Well, the President called the terrorist an “isolated extremist” even though he has claimed to be part of Al Qaeda, and Al Qaeda confirms his claim.

The Affirmative Action Injustice Department moved quickly in this case to get
civilian court charges placed against the Islamic terrorist, so that all interrogations of him would be forcibly ended. Oh, and the charges have a maximum penalty of 40 years. Attempt to murder over 200 people and get off in 25 years with good behavior. He should have been considered an illegal enemy combatant and turned over to the military and the CIA. This was an act of war, not just a passenger misbehaving.

Homeland Security Ditz Nappy Napolitano initially said that the fact that the attack was prevented from being successful showed that “the system worked.” Oh, so letting someone on many terrorist watch lists and
whose father had gone to American officials and warned them about his son board an airliner with over 200 people on board and only having the plane land safely because he was unable to properly detonate his high quality explosives shows that the system worked? Nappy went on to say that there was no evidence that this was part of a larger plot, although the Islamic terrorist himself said more were being prepped in Yemen to do the jobs. Eventually, the ditz had to go back on the air to say that her comments were out of context and that the system had “failed miserably” despite what she had previously said.

Dan Calabrese of North Star National says that when it comes to airline security, it is time for Americans to get over their privacy issues. Besides, Senator Dodd believes we need LESS security at airports, and even took money away from airport security to give it to one of his constituencies.

Nappy, The Arrogant One (Press Secretary Gibbs), and other Administration officials went into their default campaign mode in the aftermath of the failed Islamic terrorist attack. They
blamed George W. Bush. So let me get this straight. This guy’s father called the US Embassy in Nigeria and warned them about his son, which means the Hillary! State Department had full knowledge of him. He was on multiple watch lists. He had no passport. He was in Yemen from August to mid-December. He had contacts with the same Islamic terrorist cleric that the Fort Hood Islamic terrorist had. He purchased a one-way ticket with cash and had no baggage other than his backpack. How many red flags does it take for the Obama Administration to see a threat over their “Blame Bush” glasses?

Don’t think that I’m NOT giving the Bush Administration any blame. They do get some, since two of the top leaders of Al Qaeda in Arabian Peninsula were guests of ours in Gitmo
until they were released into the custody of Saudi Arabia for “rehabilitation” in 2007. (Tip of The Crawfish’s hat goes to RJ of Paul Revere’s Riders)When will our government’s leaders realize that this is not just a war against “extremists” or terrorist organizations? The whole of Islam is fighting us and has been for over 1300 years. There is no such thing as a “rehabilitated” terrorist or a rehabilitated muslim. They can only be “rehabilitated” by God when they are dead. It’s our job to arrange the meeting.

Since it is now common knowledge that many terrorist training camps are in Yemen, and that this terrorist and those who attacked the USS Cole were trained, equipped, and had their operations planned in Yemen, one might understand the Republican objections to the pro-Islamic terrorism Obama Administration’s plans to transfer 80 terrorists from Gitmo to Yemen. It appears that some Democrats are
starting to figure that out as well.

The First Fashion Disaster is at it again. She’s been photographed, while on the family’s multi-million dollar Hawaiian vacation, wearing
shoes that are priced at $635.00. The Crawfish has seen much nicer shoes at Payless Shoes for under $50.00. The family is spending over $4,000.00 per night to stay in a mansion (their actual home is still in Chicago), and this whole adventure is excessively expensive (air travel for the family, staff, security people, and security equipment to Hawaii ain’t cheap), but there are no liberals complaining about the cost. Those same folks were screaming about the cost of W’s trips to his own ranch in his actual home state.

For the second time in his reign, His Majesty King Bu’raq al Obama has a chance to give support to
opposition forces in Iran, but instead will let I’minajihad handle the situation however he wishes.

How’s that “stimulus” workin’ out? Down in The Crawfish’s home state there’s a $163,000,000.00 program to winterize homes for po’folk. So far, $1,800,000.00 has been spent and they’ve managed to
caulk up a whopping SEVEN homes! For that price, you could have BOUGHT twenty four homes at $75,000.00 each, which will buy a three bedroom, two bath, two car garage home in my neighborhood.

Do any of y’all think the Affirmative Action Attorney General will do anything about
this request for an investigation into the activities of White House Muscleman Rahm “Ballerina” Emanuel? There are a lot of big liberal names, including Emanuel, Franklin Raines, and Jamie Gorelick, deeply involved with the fiscal shenanigans of Fannie and Freddie. They made tens of millions each driving those entities into ruin, while using accounting tricks and lies to Congress to keep the oversight committees in the dark until Freddie and Fannie helped cause the credit collapse of 2008. Notice that Emanuel even wrote a loophole into laws regarding F&F just before he left Congress. But it was all Bush’s fault, right?

Once again the Obama Administration is
getting angry at Israel because Israel has the temerity to build housing within their own national borders. The Israeli government has approved the construction of 700 apartments in eastern Jerusalem, and that upsets the Islamic world, which means it upsets the Obama Administration. I’ll say it again. This is like China getting upset at the US for building housing in San Diego, since it was once a part of Mexico.

In the wake of the Senate’s passage of the Cash For Cloture Obamacare Bill, Senator DeMint struck a blow for the vast majority of Americans who oppose the Obamacare monstrosity. He
objected to the appointment of conferees, which means that unless the House passes the Senate bill UNCHANGED, then whatever comes back to the Senate still needs 60 votes to pass. Good job, Senator!

There is another reason that the Democrats are scrambling to get the final passage of Obamacare as soon as possible. On January 19th, there will be a
special election in Taxachusetts for the Senate seat formerly occupied by Teddythedrunk (D-Chappaquiddick). State Senator Scott Brown is taking on Democrat Martha Coakley. Coakley is a supporter of all far left issues, and only reluctantly supports the Senate Obamacare bill. She opposes all abortion restrictions. Coakley also refuses to have a one-on-one televised debate against Brown, which proves that she’s running scared. If Brown can win against her, that will give the GOP 41 votes to block Obamacare in the Senate.

Gawd, I love the Great State of Texas. State Attorney General Greg Abbott is going to
fight Obamacare in federal court once it passes. South Carolina’s AG is also going to fight it. This fight ain’t anywhere near over!

The Affirmative Action Attorney General’s Injustice Department just
removed Christopher Coates from his post as head of the voting rights section and transferred him to South Carolina. Casual news watchers might not find this newsworthy, but anybody who has paid attention to the happenings in the Injustice Department would remember that it was Coates who pressed the charges against the New Black Panther Party for their obvious voter intimidation tactics in Filthadelphia on Election Day 2008. The Injustice Department later dropped the charges on orders from Holder and his buddy Bu’raq.

If y’all come across any weird/stoooopid/strange news stories that might be fodder for The Weekly Claw or The Weekend Claw, e-mail them to me at CrawfishsClaw@yahoo.com and I’ll consider ‘em. Yes, I will give you newshounds credit.

“If, from the more wretched parts of the old world, we look at those which are in an advanced stage of improvement, we still find the greedy hand of government thrusting itself into every corner and crevice of industry, and grasping the spoil of the multitude. Invention is continually exercised, to furnish new pretenses for revenues and taxation. It watches prosperity as its prey and permits none to escape without tribute.” – Thomas Paine

The Constitution of the United States


  1. Need to take a moment to actually look over the entrees you've served up this time, but I did note one thing I think you're mistaken on.

    Those 'Blame Bush' eyepieces aren't glasses, Craw. Think racehorses and you'll be on the right track.

    And yes, didn't you know? The at least semi-official position is that everything is supposed to be blamed on one of three Bushes. Either W, his father, or that burning one a few centuries back.

  2. This attempted terror attack on Christmas Day is the second terrorist attack in the US since Barry was inaugurated.
    One of my 20 yr old boys pointed that out.
    Wasn't it Bush/Cheney's fault that we had islamist jihadists mad at us?
    Although, Barry and co. won't admit the Ft. Hood shootings and the attempt to kill over 300 people in the air an on the ground were terrorist attacks. They've been calling them "incidents".
    I heard the justice dept. is only charging the guy with trying to destroy a jet. A property crime. Why not 300 counts of attempted murder?

    Mark Steyn filled in for Rush today. I love the name he calls Big Sis.....Incompetano.

    Hopefully, Coakly won't be elected in Mass. She put a man in prison and kept him there even though she knew he was innocent. Howie Carr talks about her.

  3. Ender,
    I was going to mention blinders, but since horseracing isn't as popular as it used to be, I thought some folks wouldn't understand it.

    How'd I forget about the blaming of the burning bush and all things related to Judaism or Christianity?

  4. B-mom,
    more info on that travesty of justice, please!

  5. Well, Crawfish, it's been one helluva year. I wish I could remember which of the court jesters made a comment about the effect of Obamanomics using an airplane analogy. I thought of my first Navy aircraft, the A-3D Skywarrior, after a dual flame-out. Unpowered, it had the glide ratio of a rock. From my perspective, so does our current economy. Obama and crew have managed to seize the engines of our economy by taking funds out of the hands of those who actually create wealth and jobs. God help us in the coming year.

  6. How did people so stupid rise so high? The system worked perfectly? They were bragging about their obvious screw-up. The scary thing is that they were genuinely proud of their achievement. That abandoned missile silo in Montana is looking pretty good right about now.

    Happy New Year Claw!

  7. This is priceless.

    Nappy is rightfully taking flack over the way Homeland Insecurity responded (or not) prior to the panty bomber's escapade, and her subsequent Bat-turn on the Sunday talk shows - everything worked perfectly - everything was FUBAR.

    With is a growing possibility (probability) she will soon be under bus like so many before her, there is already talk out here in the desert about an unemployed Nappy making a run for the Senate against Juan McAmnesty.

    I guess she figures getting sacked from a federal department post would look good on her resume.

  8. Craw,

    Looking forward to reading the Claw in 2010.

    Happy New Year! BTW, is "Happy New Year" still politically correct? I just can't keep up with parochial liberal protocol.

  9. Two issues to address:
    First, it isn't a War on Terror, no matter how badly the W wanted to declare war on an emotion.
    It does happen though to be a War on Jihad.
    Second: That $163 million program to weatherize homes in Texas... how did they get any homes done at all? That happens to be my day job and I am in fact getting stimulated also. The program has been a real trial to get a handle on since the DOE (Dept of Energy)has been sooooo slow in providing any clear guidance on how they want the process to be done.Which is then changed the next week. The joke of the week for the last few months has been "New Email from DOE, BOHICA."

  10. Here is a link with a copy of the criminal complaint against Umar the underwear bomber:


  11. Oh, and about the wasting of porkulous money?
    My husband is a cost estimator.
    One of the jobs he has been given to estimate is the renovation of the Margaret Chase Smith building in Augusta, ME. (I believe it's Augusta, may be Bangor).
    He told me the money that the state has gotten to renovate that building could build 3 new buildings. $48,000,000. That's $48 million.

  12. Saltwater,
    Seems the Skywarrior had the same glide ratio as the Phantom II. McDonnell proved one thing with that bird...with enough thrust, any kitchen appliance will fly!

    Obama has given us a Phantom at 30K ft for an economy, but it's missing the engines and generators.

  13. Skep,
    dunno about Montana, but I could definitely live "Deep in a hole in Texas"!
    (apologies to Bugs Bunny)

  14. Nappy vs McLame? All I can say is OY VE!

    uh....wishing someone a happy new year is damaging to the psyche of the old year.

  16. Gar,
    Actually, I believe it should simply be a War against Islam, since that's how THEY see it.

    They got a bunch of non-drybacks to do those 7 houses in the 5 hours between DOE updates. That's the difference between non-drybacks and union workers. Union guys have 45 rules for every action, including 5 ten-minute coffee breaks per hour, while the non-drybacks are just told "do this quickly and you'll get paid" and they do it. That's why highway projects in Texas actually get DONE!

  17. b-mom,
    the travesty of justice I was referring to was the one with Coakley putting an innocent person away.

  18. b-mom,
    $48M to renovate a single building?

    To quote Colonel Sherman T. Potter...HORSE HOCKEY!

  19. Oh, so much when it comes to libs, sorry about that.
    Here is one article by Ann Coulter.


  20. This administration continues to fail...

    and it's answer...?

    Bush's fault. People aren't buying that excuse any more.

  21. b-mom,
    Thanx for that column. This needs to be front page news in the papers leading up to January 19th.

  22. Eric,
    While I find fault in 75% of the actions of the Bush Administration, I can't blame them for the actions of the Obama Administration.

  23. Nice year's roundup craw!

    For most of the past two years we can line up a lot of blame in liberals for the spending and stupid stuff they authorized. We can always defund these parasites if we can get the House back.

    Two things are building up from the last 3-5 years and only one of those is sufficient to sink the Dems for a generation: [1] high unemployment and [2] inflation or hyperinflation.

    We may get a double off this one.

    Start the boycotts and girlcotts, reduce debt, buy gold and get set for some more terrorism and taxes on everything in sight. Civil Disobedience, or CD, is the watch word for the next 1-3 years.

    Just say no to liberals.


  24. A nice tidy group of reports from the Crawfish. Keep it coming Craw. Darvin Dowdy

  25. rycK,
    I just hope employment goes up rapidly in Ft Worth over the next couple of months.

  26. DD,
    will do, my Texas brother. Comin' home in a month!


I welcome your comments, but beware that I do review them before allowing them to be seen. While I allow opposing points of view, I discard stoooopidity and trollish comments.
