3-16-2010 The Weekly Claw

Well, my vacation is over. I am officially EMPLOYED again, having started working at a defense contractor this week. The big drawback is that I now have to decide what to wear to work each day. I’m not wearing a uniform anymore.

Last week, the House was considering a rules change that would allow them to “deem” the Senate Obamacare bill passed when they voted on the corrections bill. Some of the readers of this column and a few other blogs that I frequent opined that this rules change was probably unConstitutional, but that they had no reference on it. Well, The Crawfish delivers. Here is Article I, Section VII, Paragraph II of the Constitution: “Every Bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a Law, be presented to the President of the United States; If he approve he shall sign it, but if not he shall return it, with his Objections to that House in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the Objections at large on their Journal, and proceed to reconsider it. If after such Reconsideration two thirds of that House shall agree to pass the Bill, it shall be sent, together with the Objections, to the other House, by which it shall likewise be reconsidered, and if approved by two thirds of that House, it shall become a Law. But in all such Cases the Votes of both Houses shall be determined by yeas and Nays, and the Names of the Persons voting for and against the Bill shall be entered on the Journal of each House respectively. If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten Days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the Same shall be a Law, in like Manner as if he had signed it, unless the Congress by their Adjournment prevent its Return, in which Case it shall not be a Law.” Notice that the votes MUST be cast and recorded. There is no “deeming” allowed by the Constitution, but when has a meaningless document ever gotten in the way of the far left, in this nation or any other?

When directly asked about the unconstitutionality of this procedure, Representative Slaughter deemed to present this response, “I think it’s ridiculous and people who are telling you its unconstitutional should know better and you should be very outraged that people who don’t know better will say things like that. This has been used since 1933. The Republicans used it about 34 times in the last term, and we’ve used it abundantly this last term. There’s nothing at all unconstitutional about this. It’s a perfectly legitimate way to do things.” Oh really? Show us those 34 times that this process was used and I will personally file a federal lawsuit to have those laws overturned because they were never passed according to the Constitution. Have you even read the Constitution, Representative Slaughter? My guess is that the answer to that question is a no.

When Queen of the House Red Nanny P-Lousy’s chief deputy was asked about it, he completely danced around the question while asserting that everything was Kosher. He can’t read the Constitution, either.

The Chosen One is saying that he won’t campaign for the House Dems who vote against the Obamacare bill, which, given his track record, increases their chances of getting re-elected.

Dingy Harry Reid is once again proven to be a complete and total moron. Take a look at this interview, where Dingy tries to say that paying taxes is voluntary, although if you don’t pay you will be fined or put in prison. Can you imagine what would happen if this video were to be played on national TV?

Poor Jessica Simpson. The epitome of blonde says that since her last boyfriend’s revelations about their sex life, men have been undressing her with their eyes. Here’s a hint, deary: that’s been going on ever since you became a celebrity.

Jess isn’t the only dumb blonde in the news this week, as Townhall blogger “Jim” pointed out to me this week. Hillary! is spending $5,400,000.00 to buy new champagne flutes and wine goblets for American embassies around the world. First of all, what the *@#^@% is wrong with the stemware already in those embassies? Secondly, doesn’t she know there’s a recession going on and the Obama Administration is already beyond broke? Thirdly, she contracted with a Swedish company because she couldn’t find an American manufacturer who makes lead-free crystal…well, sorta. She contracted with a Swedish company because she likes finery from foreign lands. That has to be the real reason, since the state that she supposedly calls home, at least in order to have become a Senator, has a company that makes lead-free crystal stemware. Imagine that, a Clinton who lies.

In response to the American people noticing that the Obamacare bill takes $500,000,000,000.00 out of Medicare, which is almost insolvent already, The Chose One actually said “this proposal adds almost a decade of solvency to Medicare.” Let me try to wrap my brain around this. The number of Americans on Medicare is going up, but taking 500 billion dollars out of the system puts it in better financial shape? Sorry, but two minus one is not four, no matter what kind of legislative tricks you try.

Anybody who still believes that there will be any “reconciliation” if the House passes the Senate Obamacare bill obviously still believes in the tooth fairy, the Easter bunny, and that Bill Clinton never had sexual relations with that woman…Miss Lewinsky. Shall we remind y’all that the Senate bill makes it illegal to make changes to certain sections of the Senate bill!

Bob Maistros of the North Star National brings us a look at the latest phone call involving Hillary! and Prime Minister Netanyahu.

The Obama Administration’s hatred of Israel and American military capabilities is on display yet again, as Claw contributor “Beachmom” found out. Philip Coyle has been nominated to for the position of associate director of national security and international affairs spot in the Office of Science and Technology Policy, yet he considers ballistic missile defense to be “theology, not a technology” despite having been proven over the past 20 years. He opposes missile defense, obviously preferring to see Iran and North Korea have the ability to hit Israel and Japan without interference.

The evidence trail against those who allowed the muslim terrorist to remain in the Army, get promoted, and murder 13 Americans at Fort Hood is getting deeper. Every supervisor this Islamic terrorist ever had in the Army should be charged with 13 counts of accessory to murder.

Just when you thought His Majesty’s judicial appointments couldn’t get any worse, he decides to promote a Clinton appointee who is clearly not qualified to be a judge from a US District Court bench to the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals. If you don’t believe me when I say he’s not qualified to be a judge, then explain how any qualified judge could claim that because a serial sexual sadist and murderer had desires to brutally sexually assault young women and girls and then kill them that he shouldn’t be given the death penalty. Yes, his sexual desires are a mitigating factor in his rape and murder of EIGHT women and girls. That is the kind of judge that Obama wants to put a step away from the Supreme Court and possibly replace Justice Stevens next year.

Another legend has passed. Peter Graves, most famous for his roles in “Mission: Impossible” and “Airplane”, died of a heart attack Monday at age 83.

We’ll end this edition of The Claw with a good one that I received in my inbox three times this week, but the first to send it was Poll Katz e-mailer “Bill”: I need some help QUICK! Does anybody know how to cancel a bid on e-Bay? I put in a bid for a “Mickey Mouse Outfit” and now I’m six minutes away from owning Obama and his Cabinet!

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.

"The instrument by which it [government] must act are either the AUTHORITY of the laws or FORCE. If the first be destroyed, the last must be substituted; and where this becomes the ordinary instrument of government there is an end to liberty!" - Alexander Hamilton (quote courtesy of fellow blogger “Saltwater

The Constitution of the United States


  1. Last item first - Peter Graves brought a great deal of joy to his audiences throughout his career. Heartfelt condolences to the entire Aurness family, especially to his older brother, James Arness.

    Chatigny seems to fit the Obama mold for qualifications established with Arne "Fisting" Duncan. Which leads to Coyle who advocates abandoning missile defense because it isn't 100% foolproof - he probably thinks condoms are wasted money because they also have a chance of failure. I say give him some spending cash and point him toward some working girls to test that theory.

  2. nah.....working BOYS fits the mold of this Administration!

  3. Always enjoyed Peter Graves.Merlin Olsen also,who just recently passed.

    Just read NewsMax is reporting a new record low approval of congress...17%.Ya think they have a clue or even care? Nah,I'd guess neither.What an interesting time to live in if one happens to be a political junkie.

  4. Friday nights when I was a kid was watching "Mission:Impossible" and "Tom Jones".
    Peter Graves was also really funny in "Airplane".

    You mean Hitlery didn't go to Target or Wal Mart to get new stemware? These people are like a bunch of little Marie Antoinettes. Partying and buying frivolous junk while the citizens are cutting back and losing jobs.

    The political correctness and the fear of appearances is disgusting and disturbing when you look at Maj. Hassan and him being pushed through the ranks. You are right Craw, Hasan's supervisors and the people on the board that approved his academic psychological presentation should be prosecuted. And slapped around a little by real men.

  5. Corning does make pretty-fair glassware.

  6. Crawdaddy,

    It is not only the Army that is promoting sub-par individuals. I believe the Navy should also go after the superiors of H. Graf (known by her crews as HAG).

    The PC in our military and civilian agencies is running rampant and we lose to many good people because of it. It is about time we clean house, not only with our Congress but also the Administration which promotes using the Peter principle.

    PS: My Air Force has the same issues, as does the Marines, CIA, et.al.

  7. 1. Hey! You're back in Texas. Redwing Boots, Jeans and a clean shirt works most places.

    2. "as if he had signed it, unless the Congress by their Adjournment prevent its Return, in which Case it shall not be a Law.” I think this is called a "Pocket Veto."

    3. Maybe Hillary is taking the old lead-free crystal stemware home. Bill and she forgot to get the crystal from the White House when they left....

    4. Hasan's superiors should be brought up on charges of Derelection of Duty. That would be more appropriate than accessory charges. By the way, What's the CNO doing in this mess???

    5. Appointee who is clearly not qualified to be a judge appointed to a court that is clearly not qualified to be a court. What's wrong with that??

    6. Justice Stevens is retiring? Isn't he the usual "swing" vote? By next year, if we are lucky, there will be enough backbone in the Senate to block another Sotomayer...

    7. "Mission Impossible." The guy who plays "Ducky" on NCIS was on MI. Anyone remember his name? It sounded Russian.

  8. I caught that shate with Slaughter. Had I been talking to him, I would rejoined: "so two wrongs make a right?" WHO cares about 1933 or the Republicans doing it, IT IS WRONG!

  9. Buck, David McCallum was Illya Kuryakin on "The Man From UNCLE".
    He now plays Ducky on "NCIS"

  10. USAEagle1,
    As long as the unions, homos, blacks, latinos, and non-drybacks support the Dems, they will go along with the party bosses.

  11. B-mom,
    if they keep this kinda crrap up, they will meet the same fate as Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. If they ram through Obamacare and Crrap and Tax, they will be risking violence.

  12. Dr Pete,
    I'm sure a lot of American companies could do it lead-free if there was a large order for it.

  13. Flame,
    as you know, I posted the stories about that beee-otch and her abuses of command

  14. Buck,
    1) I'm surprised, but safety boots aren't required on this helicopter rework line. Bought 2 pair of Dickies jeans and 3 Wranglers, along with some inexpensive shirts. I'm set.
    2) Yes, but they STILL have to vote for a bill to become law.
    3) Using it as gifts on her travels...
    4) CNO isn't involved. It's an Army issue.
    5) Well...he's not a part of the NINTH Circus Court.
    6) Stevens is the 3rd most liberal on the court, following Ginsburg and Sotomayor. Anthony Kennedy is the swing vote.
    7) See Beachmom's reply

  15. Gunny,
    they really are risking a violent uprising in my opinion. I hope not, but the possibility is growing.

  16. OK,here it comes...A) First,congrats on being a working stiff again. As for appropriate workwear,would a T-shirt that says,in the Ford script,F@CK NOBAMA ? Or one that has a likeness of him in crosshairs? B) Exactly. Should these imbeciles choose this path,I say begin recall,or impeachment proceedings IMM-FUKKIN-EIDATELY. On ALL of them. Or a stray meteor would be nice,too.
    C)I'd bet this moron has not read it. Along with the VAST majority of both chambers,along with their respective staff idiots.D)See C). Only double.E)Man,if I were a dhimmi running for re-election this year,(that is a DISGUSTING thought)I'd make DAMN sure I'd be voting NO just to keep the Obama kiss of death off my campaign. THAT would be the LAST thing the dhimmitards need,is the asshat himself showing up.F)That interview should be proof positive of Harry's insanity. MWAHAHAHAHAHAA What a cluck.Reid most likely will be the NEXT in a LONG line of dhimmi asshats,such as Rangel,Geithner,et al,who don't bother paying THEIR damn tax bill.G)Typical of a celebutard. Hey,Jessica,ya twit,HOW ABOUT WEARING A GODAM BURQUA IF YOU DON'T LIKE MEN LOOKING AT YOU?? You are DAMN lucky the mullahs haven't had YOU stoned to the death. Idiot.H)Here is MORE state property that'll end up in Westchester county.NEVER will this s#!t see an embassy.At the VERY least,look for it on Flea-Bay.I)THAT is almost as good as the crack he made about businesses will save 3,000% on insurance premiums if this fiasco becomes law,AND these employers can then give YOU a raise with the savings!!! Gee,this bastard thinks of EVERYTHING. Except reality.Is it me,or is this cluck becoming delirious over this? J) I'm sure there are SOME delusional souls who believe that s#!t.THAT would PROVE W.C. Fields' theory.K) I LOVE IT.My response would be more along Carlinian or Kinnison lines. Unfit for print.You know,the seven words you can't say on TV?? L)Ho-HUM.Another in a LLLOOOOONNNNGGG line of imbeciles this administration has beeen populated with.Can't have anyone with ANY competence,now can we?M)Just MORE proof(as if we need it)that PC kills. ANY one who had ANYTHING to do with moving this pos along should be lined up in front of a firing squad. Can I volunteer to "do the honors"?N)See M)Apply same to any "judge"who would let these cretins off.While I would NEVER wish that on anyone,it IS obvious who hasn't had a wife,daughter,or child raped,or mutilated by one of these scum.O)R I P Mr.Phelps.Also LOVED the "Airplane" movies.P) Yep. Gotta be careful on Flea-Bay!! So much for this exciting excursion into the Swamp. I've been trying to e-mail you some things,but they're coming back as undeliverable. If you still have my e-mail address,if you get time,send me a dead line,or something so I can make sure I typed the address in right. Thanks in advance.

  17. Crawfish--this is Pen Captain from TH--funny thing about the US constitution --it just keeps on getting in the way of despots and their plans. I wonder if the kool-aid peddlers in Washington even know they themselves are drowning in their own mess??

  18. Crawfish- this is Pen Captain from TH--the funny thing about the constitution is it seems to keep getting in the way of power mongers.

  19. Crawdaddy,

    I know you did, it was just a good example combined with other incidents to show the wide spread nature of the disease.

    Got an interesting article on a primarily liberal site in NM about healthcare. Pretty good breakdown of what is about to occur.

  20. This weekend will be something--Democrats are revealing their true colors--what is being "slaughtered" here is the US Constitution!! keep up the fire crawfish. I may start a blog here!!!

  21. Graves was a good man and a great American--he will be missed!(this is Shadow95)

  22. Did not the Dim-o-crats HOWL in 2005 when the GOP was gonna change a rule for filibusters? They howled about a "arrogance of power" Now, how do they explain this "slaughtering" of the US Constitution??

  23. Crawfish,

    Did you see where Fess Parker had died?

  24. Crawfish- this thing still can be defeated--if the parlentarian decides the language of this bill sfits he can send it back and then 60 votes will be required.

  25. Clyde,
    a) I'm trying to keep my political outlook to myself as long as I'm in my probationary period!
    b) Impeachment is a non-starter as long as the socialists control the House and the Senate. We may regain the House in 2010, but the Senate will still be out of reach until 2012.
    c+d) Yup...or at least they haven't read it since junior high school
    e) He truly has The Fecal Touch
    f) Voluntary is such a foreign concept to them
    g) She's the kind of gal who is great to be with for about 6 month. At that point, not even the sex with a beautiful hotbody can't overcome the sheer stoooooopidity
    h) It will be used as "gifts"
    i) Delirious is too nice of a term
    j) Don'tcha mean P.T. Barnum? "A sucker is born every minute!"
    k) My response to that wench would be completely bleeped.
    l) Competence is to be avoided when trying to cause a nation to crumble from within.
    m+n) Stand in line, brother.
    o) "Timmy, have you ever seen a grown man naked?"
    p) crawfishsclaw@yahoo.com still works!

  26. Pen Cap,
    The objective is to get rid of the Constitution, and they've tipped their hand with the Slaughter Rule.

  27. SK,
    I'll keep firing, but having a real job that doesn't allow me to websurf periodically is cramping my timetable!

  28. Shadow,
    I saw a TV ad with him as the spokesperson a couple of hours before his death.

  29. 8th,
    you ain't supposed to remember that kinda stuff!

  30. G-twin,
    sorry, but I never liked the TV shows "Danial Boone" and "Davey Crockett". They smelled of bovine excrement to me even as a child.

  31. C-bow,
    the Parliamentarian doesn't matter in the least, since the President of the Senate has the authority to overrule the Parliamentarian...and the President of the Senate is Biden.

  32. Thanks. I'll try it.


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.
