4-28-2010 The Weekly Claw

Well, Mrs. Crawfish is now home so my mental condition is a bit better. A trip to Scarborough Faire has also put me in a better mood. Now let’s see what the past week has given us.

The first of the three military trials for the Navy SEALs who gave a split lip to a terrorist who murdered 4 Blackwater Security personnel is over. Petty Officer First Class Julio Huertas was found not guilty on charges of dereliction of duty and attempting to influence the testimony of another Sailor. Of course, this should never have gone to trial and the tango should have been executed for his crimes on the spot. The next day, Petty Officer Jonathan Keefe was also found not guilty. ‘Tis a good week!

Arizona’s Governor signed the anti-illegal immigrant bill into law on Friday, making it possible for police officers in that state to check to see if people who act like non-drybacks are in fact non-drybacks. The reaction of His Eminence Sultan Bu’raq al Obama was very predictable. He called people who wish to enforce our immigration laws “misguided” and said laws such as the one in Arizona “undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans.” Uh…nooooooo….it shows that we cherish living fairly under the law. People who are here legally are welcome, but people who break into our house are not.

The Mexican government acted with outrage at the Arizona bill, with their Senate passing a resolution calling for the legislation’s repeal and their Foreign Ministry issuing a Travel Warning stating “there is a negative political environment for migrant communities and for all Mexican visitors.” So what exactly is the difference between the Arizona law and how Mexico treats foreign visitors and immigrants? Do they allow just anybody to work or live in their country? Of course not! Just ask anybody trying to cross their southern border illegally if they are freely allowed to do so.

“It is absolutely reminiscent of second class status of Jews in Germany prior to World War II when they had to have their papers with them at all times and were subject to routine inspections at the suspicion of being Jewish.” Such are the words of yet another brain-dead Democrat from Colorado. The moron doesn’t seem to understand that non-drybacks don’t even rate second-class citizen status. They are ILLEGALS and have exactly no rights whatsoever! Of course, he also seems to have the typical liberal hard time understanding that Nazis were leftist-statists and their actions mirror those of the Democrats much more than those of people who support the Constitution of the United States.

In response to the new law, non-dryback supporters rioted in Arizona. The Obama Administration immediately asked the rioters if they were, in fact, Tea Party terrorists, since we all know that leftists never riot and Tea Partiers are riot-prone.

Since she opposes the new law in Arizona, Homeland Security Ditz Napolitano was asked if the southern border was secure. She called the question “unfair”, which goes to show that she has no idea what her job is.

Claw contributor “Dennis” sends us this reminder of who the top 5 perps are in the great hoax known as Man –made Glo-Bull Warming. On a related note, Mrs. Crawfish pulled down an old bumper sticker from our garage wall when we painted the garage this past weekend. It said “AL GORE IS A RISKY SCHEME!”

So far this year, the City of Chicago has seen over 113 murders. That figure is so high that a couple of State Representatives are calling for the Governor to deploy the National Guard on the streets to quell the violence. Imagine what those guys would do if Chicago had the same murder rates as say…N’awlins, Detrut, or Filthadelphia.

One of The Chosen One’s favorite people, ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis spoke at a meeting of the Young Democrat Socialists, the American youth branch of Socialist International. Not only did the ignorant “community organizer” praise socialism, but she called the Tea Party Movement a “bowel movement” and continued the mantra of all Tea Party groups and all opposition to Obama and the socialists being based upon racism. Sorry, but we are in opposition to the leaches of society, out of control spending, and all things anti-Constitutional. The only reason that this puts us in opposition to most of black America is because most of black America supports being leaches and socialists.

His Majesty King Barack I has been breaking his promises from his campaign at a dizzying pace, but when asked about actually KEEPING some of his promises regarding taxes, he responds that the questioner is playing an “old Washington game.” No, ya jerk, they are wondering if the chief law enforcement officer and executive officer of our nation’s word is worth a warm bucket of spit or if he will lie repeatedly just to get himself and his allies elected.

Goverrnment Motors has pulled an Obama in their latest ad campaign. They are proclaiming their greatness in repaying their bailout money years early, when in reality they paid that “loan” off with other government bailout money. That’s kinda like bragging about paying off your MasterCard, when you used your Discover Card to do it. In other words…a lie.

At least the gummint is doing SOMETHING right this year. One of the stamps coming out this year will honor famed cartoonist and friend of the lowly GI, Bill Mauldin.

Former Corruptionois Guvna Blago’s defense team has asked for President Obama to be subpoenaed for his trial. The subpoena request was supposed to be heavily redacted, but some in the Chicago press found a way to read the redacted parts, and they are quite interesting! If the GOP wins the House this fall, this bit of news could lead to possible impeachment proceedings.

A candidate for the office of Governor in Alabama has it right. Tim James said “This is Alabama; we speak English. If you want to live here, learn it!” He vows to stop administering drivers license tests in languages other than English. That only makes sense, since all traffic signs are in English and the cops, for the most part, also only speak English. Liberals, of course, are beside themselves in anger over this blatant raaaaaaaacism. The Crawfish would go a step further. If I was elected Governor of Texas, all voting ballots would be in English only. Some say that this would be a violation of the Voting Rights Act or equal opportunity, but to vote one must be a citizen, and to become a citizen one must pass an English proficiency exam, and this means that all people who are legal to vote can speak English. Case closed.

Speaking of REAL racism, how come THIS story didn’t make national headlines? When REAL public racism is seen in public, you should note that the person displaying the racism is usually a liberal.

Obama’s Navy Secretary, Ray Mabus, really stepped in it this time. Until now, the amphibious assault ships of the SAN ANTONIO-class have been named after American cities. Mabus has announced that the next ship in that class will be named after now-dead Congresscritter John Murtha. Putting Marines aboard a ship named for Murtha is like putting an all-black crew aboard a ship named for a Grand Wizard of the KKK.

It really is amazing how Supreme Court Justices are too caught up in their lofty status to be able to understand simple phrases in the English language. The first 16 words of the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States read “CONGRESS SHALL MAKE NO LAW (emphasis mine) respecting an establishment of religion; or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”. This week, the Supremes decided that a cross in the Mojave Desert placed as a WW1 war memorial in 1934 is not unConstitutional. The troubling parts of the decision are that this came down to a 5-4 decision and that that none of the Justices seemed to take into account that placing a cross on public property is not the same thing as Congress making a law. Since this had nothing to do with Congress making a law, the First Amendment was never legally a question.

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 and I’ll consider ‘em. Yes, I will give you newshounds credit.

"Freedom- no word was ever spoken that has held out greater hope, demanded greater sacrifice, needed to be nurtured, blessed more the giver, damned more its destroyers, or come closer to being God’s will on earth, and I think that’s worth fighting for if necessary." – General of the Army Omar N. Bradley


  1. Note to Mexican President Felipe Calderon - STFU about Arizona

    Mexico acknowledges migrant abuse, pledges changes - Yahoo! News

  2. Saltwater,
    when he has control of his country and it becomes something other than a crraphole loaded with corruption, THEN he can start opening his yap.

  3. Craw- great ruling on the cross---you would think the trasfer of the land to privite hands would of settled the dispute. The ACLU--American Communist Legal Union (my opinion)should take a look at REAL history of our nations founding instead of making their crap up!!

  4. Isn't it ironic that the very ones who crowed so loudly to give illegals "papers" so they could vote are now screaming because "papers" are required?? Arazona should give all illegals a one way ticket to San Francisco! and let ole "nanny almighty" P--ousy see what it like!

  5. First I am glad that Mrs. Crawfish is now home. Most of us males do better when this is the case.

    Second, I find it interesting that many of the states (like Arizona) are starting to take the feds to task. This trend seems to be increasing.

    Third, presently Mexico is a shiite-hole. I doubt if President Calderon can do much more than bluster about Arizona. That is all the drug gangs will allow him to do.

    Fourth, be sure to take a look at the book review (at my site) on Holt Collier's biography. After killing a corrupt Union officer during reconstruction, he came to Texas and trailed cattle for a few years.

    Fifth, SCOTUS has 4 members who are nothing more than DNC representatives (and one who only knows what he is going to do when he wakes up in the morning).

    Sixth, I still haven't figured out how to get my "follower" symbol to show up. However, at least Patrick Cleburne's Divisional flag shows up at the top of your page.

  6. The great state of Arizona,now if only Florida would follow.

  7. Craw,

    Glad the wife is back.

    I've written to the SecNav on that but to no avail I am sure. Also sent notes to my Rep/Sen about it.

    Hopefully Murtha is enjoying Hell next to Ted DRUNKennedy.

  8. Pen Cap,
    I still don't understand why judges can't seem to read the simple words of the First Amendment. If it ain't CONGRESS making a LAW, then the First's "establishment clause" does not apply.

  9. Chariot,
    she'd have 'em working in her winery and mowing her lawn.

  10. Ghost,
    1) Yup. Let HER deal with the kids for a while, since they seem to be more scared of her than me.
    2) The 10th Amendment seems to becoming fashionable again.
    3) The government has control over Mexico City and a few tourist areas, but that's it.
    4) He was a good man.
    5) Those 5 are IMHO completely unqualified to be local judges, much less SCOTUS Justices.
    6) Don't look at me. I'm still a computer idjut.

  11. Donnie,
    Texas seems to be following Arizona's lead on this one.

  12. Gunny,
    As long as the SecNav is an Obastooge, we'll be stuck with this.

  13. Now Claw brought to you by: South of the Border Drybaack Sauce! You know what the media is so typically not saying is that a huge percentage of the illegals here are criminals plain and simple. Do they have a planking date for the USS David Duke yet?
    This was a most unusual claw, never had one in re-fried beans before.

  14. glad mrs crawfish is back! The ruling of the cross is great news. I do believe other states are following Arazonas brave example!As far as naming a ship after Murtha goes-I can think of a few barges in need of it.

  15. Re: 1st Amendment. We've been over this one before, Craw. In the eyes of a certain type of personality, if it happens at all, it's something to be laid at Congress's feet - as the all-knowing, all-powerful, all-benevolent I TAX must permit or deny all things before said things can come to pass. (Guess which of those 'omni's I had the hardest time typing out.)

    Re: Rioting - Of course all and only Tea Partiers riot, Craw. 'Riot' now means 'any gathering of more than one individual who we don't like, where some kind of noise is made'. Remember, this is coming from the same group who took a medical term meaning, roughly, 'delayed or minimized reaction to ingesting a toxic substance' and turned that into a social term, which they promptly proclaimed to be about themselves.

    Re: Tim James. I live in the Heart of Dixie, and I'm proud he's willing to take that step. However, I also live in what turns out to be the heart of BlueDot territory, so we're getting plenty of nattering about that in the local paper. I think my favorite was the one today who said something to the effect of 'I could drive in Europe only knowing International Driving Regulations and International Signs.' News flash 1 for this guy: STOP signs and YIELD signs may have a specific shape, but 'turn here for Outback Restauraunt' tends not to, and someone trying frantically to turn back into a parking lot he just passed is one of my top five driving nightmares. News flash 2: We've got a number of spaces on our freeways where electronic signboards broadcast emergency messages (Crash in Left Lane, slow ahead) - how exactly are non-English readers supposed to respond to this?

    Re: 'Leaches' - is that a misspelling or an intentional pun? I was assuming it was simply 'leech' (bloodsucker) misspelled until I looked 'leach' up - it's the name for various processes by which usable materials are removed from a source material. So the leeches could be said to be leaching the country.

  16. Jim,
    refried and wrapped in a flour tortilla

  17. Snow,
    only if the barges are full of fecal matter

  18. Ender,
    a) I prefer the original wording and intent of the words
    b) which term are referring to?
    c) What part of "Lane Ends Merge Left" is available in Mezzican?
    d) Did I misspell bloodsuckers?

  19. Crawfish-Arizona is standing whyle the govment running- all you hear from Obummer is talk--Arizona is walking the walk!

  20. Good stuff as usual.Have been sicker than hell the last few days,will do a better job on the Claw this week. Bank on it.

  21. To answer a Clawfish:

    a) Agreed - you'll note that I merely specified 'a certain type' hold to that bit of alogic.

    b) 'Tolerance'. The only definition I ever found that didn't self refer ("Tolerance: Acting in a tolerant manner. Tolerant: Showing tolerance.') was the medical definition. Think 'Alcohol tolerance' for a perhaps better example on that.

    c) Around here? None of it. However, given that my home county shamefully went blue last presidential election, you might want to check back in a few protests or so for an update.

    d) The act of drawing useful materials out of an ore is 'leaching'. The slimy bloodsucking things crawling around in swamps are 'leeches'. And the slimy bloodsucking things crawling around the beltway are 'liberals'.

  22. Good news on the SEALS-Americas BEST! Now the last one needs to be vindacated. Glad your wifes home! I cannot live without Mrs Crossbow(she says I make her laugh-must be my manners) I find it suspicious that Nappy says the rules helped catch the NY terror suspect and yet she is critical of the Arizona law????

  23. 8th Man,
    it is amazing how so many groups are up in arms about Arizona, when their law is just enforcement of CURRENT FEDERAL LAW! Major League Baseball's union and drybacks have gone bat guano on this issue!

  24. Clyde,
    looking forward to your book on Thursday.

  25. Ender,
    a) a-logic, as in anti-logic. Kewl.
    b) As a Retired Sailor, I fully understand that definition of tolerance.
    c) All signs in the schools 'round here are in English and mezzican. I don't understand that at all. This is the US, so everything in the schools, excepting foreign language (as a second language) instruction should be in ENGLISH!
    d) What about all the folks who leech off of society? (Welfare hos, etc)

  26. C-Bow,
    Nappy is beyond the definition of complete idiot.


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.
