Welcome to another edition of The Weekend Claw. If you’re looking for any references to Tiger Woods….right there’s all of ‘em you’re gonna get. Anyway, wish a little luck for me Saturday morning, as I face my first civilian job interview.
In a move that’s all-too-typical, the left wing media is falling all over themselves trying to link the Austin suicide pilot to the Tea Party Movement, because he was angry with the IRS. They ignore the rest of his rantings, where he opposes the Catholic Church (they have rules for moral behavior), the Reagan and Bush tax cuts, and capitalists, while admitting his support for socialism. In other words, he was a supporter of Barack Obama. Meanwhile, those same media goons are completely mum on the subject of the Haaah-vahd professor who was an admitted fan of The Anointed One, even though she just committed a mass murder, murdered her brother a number of years ago, and committed an assault at a restaurant as well.
Thanks to Poll Katz e-mailer “Bill” for this news of scientific discovery. He was the first of at least 15 people who sent it to me. That thing went viral in a hurry!
How many millions of federal dollars did the University of Corruptionois waste on their newest study? The 33 page report says that Cook County, the home of Chicago, is a “Dark Pool of Political Corruption”. I could have performed that study and written a much longer, more detailed report for a mere $100,000.00.
The Crawfish is sure that y’all remember how the Democrats (and RINOs like McLame) in Congress and His Eminence Sultan Bu’raq al Obama cancelled the production of the F-22 Raptor last year, leaving the USAF with only 187 Raptors, when they were planning on having 750. Was the Raptor shelved because The Chosen One already knew what was about to happen in the Soviet Union (okay, technically it is still just Russia, but not if Vlad “The Impaler” Putin has his way)? Does he want our military to become second rate in comparison to our potential adversaries? Yes, sports fans, the Sukhoi Design Bureau has now test flown a 5th generation fighter of the stealthy variety that was designed to be the equal of the F-22. Don’t expect the Sovs to halt production until they have at least three times as many of these birds as we have Raptors. Thanks to Townhall blogger “INTHENOW” for finding the articles for me.
Oh, and by the way, the other American fighter under development, the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, has had its development pushed back by a year.
The Crawfish has figured out how the Obama Administration will take credit for the Iraq War being one of their great achievements. Secretary Gates announced that as of September 1st, Operation Iraqi Freedom will cease and Operation New Dawn will take its place. The Chosen One and Gaffes will take credit for New Dawn and try to forget that Iraqi Freedom was ever part of the equation.
Meanwhile SecState Hillary! is over in the Middle East speaking at an Islamic school that’s funded by a US government-designated TERRORIST! Her Fellow Traveller, Homeland Security Ditz Nappy Napolitano had a meeting last month with leaders of terrorist groups to brief them on what our government is planning as far as anti-radicalization efforts go. Isn’t that kinda like Admiral Nimitz giving Admiral Yamamoto our battle plans for Midway on June 1, 1942?
I doubt our government will ever learn, and our military will continue to pay the price, that being politically correct and not acknowledging that we are in a war of extermination with Islam just leads to more attacks by the muslims. This time, some more members of the Religion of Peace, who were somehow also members of the US Army, tried to poison the food supply of Fort Jackson, in South Carolina.
Regular Claw contributor “beachmom” sent me a story that made my blood boil. I’m sure y’all remember the case of the man who ran over his daughter and a friend of hers in Peoria because she wasn’t acting muslim enough and was getting “too westernized.” Well, the local Assistant DA got cowed by the public defender into not going for the death penalty. The public defender warned that there would be an “appearance that a Christian is seeking to execute a Muslim for racial, political, religious or cultural beliefs” because the top DA is a proclaimed Christian. In other words, a Follower of the Pedophilic False Prophet can murder for his so-called religion, but we can’t execute him for justice. Welcome to Barack Obama’s politically correct Amerika.
Once again, Texas leads the way in opposition to the rabid anti-capitalists of Dear Leader’s Administration. Rick Perry may have been cozy with lobbyists during his tenure, but at least he has the spine to stand up against DC.
Wasn’t it the leftist Democrats who were railing about how George W. Bush was breaking every privacy law in existence? Those leftists sure are quiet these days.
Don’t ever let someone say that we don’t give our fighting men and women some of the best equipment money can buy, and never doubt the bravery and camaraderie of all who carry the title United States Marine. OOOO-RAH and Semper Fi to my Jarhead brothers and sisters.
Just when you thought Obamacare was stopped by the election of Senator Brown from Taxachusetts, the White House is writing their own Obamacare bill to be included with the budget bills in order to be passed through “reconciliation” with only 51 votes. How well do you think this will fly with the American people.
With Evan Bayh pulling out of the 2010 race, Indiana Democrats are considering John Cougar, or is it John Cougar Mellencamp, or John Mellencamp…whatever….a has-been singer for the seat. Why not? They already have a failed comedian as a Democratic Senator.
Poll Katz e-mailer “Terri” sent this history lesson that we’ll end the week with:
In the 1700s, what is now Haiti was called the “Jewel of the Caribbean”, and produced about 40% of the world’s sugar.
In 1791 the government of France passed legislation to phase out slavery in its Caribbean colonies and grant the former Negro slaves citizenship. Rather than becoming citizens, Haiti’s Negro population mass murdered all whites and Mulattoes who could not flee the Island in time.
In 1804 only full blooded Negros remained and Haiti became the first Negro ruled nation. The Haitian revolution dominated America’s debate over slavery. While both the north and the south agreed that slavery should be ended, southerners and a large percentage of northerners universally opposed having a large population of freed slaves living in their midst.... The Haitian “Revolution” was fresh in every one’s mind.
Flash forward to 1915. The “Jewel of the Caribbean” is now a desolate cesspool that is exporting almost no sugar. The United States decides to “take up the white man’s burden” and send the US Marine Corps to rebuild Haiti’s infrastructure and feed its starving population. The United States gave huge amounts of money to Haiti and over-saw the building of 1,000 miles of road, telephone lines, modernized its port, and helped Haiti to start exporting sugar once again. The US also put an end to the thousands of bandits along Haiti’s border with the Dominican Republic.
The US left in 1934 at the request of the then stabilized and very ungrateful Haitian government. Haiti immediately sank straight back into total desolation strife.
In 1973 the United State once again began playing a huge role in Haiti, giving the Island huge sums of money in handouts each year.
In 1994 the Clinton administration once again sent the US military to Haiti to rebuild the Island’s infrastructure.
In 1995 the Peace Corps went to Haiti in large numbers to train the Haitians in job skills. The US government spent almost one Billion providing food and job training to the Haitians between 95 and 99.
So when Obama says that Haiti has our “full, unwavering, support,” they have already had our full support since 1915.
