Sorry for being a day late this week. Life at Casa Crustacean has been a bit hectic this week.
We’ll start this week’s edition with a bit of sad news. Legendary UCLA basketball coach and all-around class act John Wooden died Friday at age 99. We should all wear Bruin Blue tomorrow in his honor.
We also mourn the passing of another American Hero. Lemuel Bahe Lazzie was one of the Navajo Code Talkers in the US Marine Corps in WW2. One final salute to you, Sir.
I’ve heard of being politically correct, but this just goes to the point of being politically STOOOPID!
Does this pronouncement mean that Obama and the Dim-ocrats are finally going to stop blaming W for everything under the sun? The Crawfish doubts it.
I’ve said it before, and I know I’ll say it a bunch more times, but we really do need to secure our borders and get serious about combating illegal immigrants. One of the ways to do so is, of course, to heavily punish companies/company owners/hiring managers who give jobs to illegals. Another way is to end the “anchor baby” incentive. To do that we need a Constitutional Amendment that would rewrite the first sentence of Amendment XIV, Section 1 to read "All persons naturalized in the United States or born in the United States to parents who are within the United States legally, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside."
His Majesty thinks we are all morons. He’s crowing about a whopping 431,000 jobs created in May, which isn’t a bad number at all until you take a closer look at those jobs. 411,000 of them are TEMPORARY jobs with the Census. Those jobs have almost exactly ZERO positive impact on the economy, yet he’s bragging about them.
How much hatred do the liberals and the media (but I repeat myself) have for Jews and Israel? Take a look at what the Queen of the White House Press Corpse has to say. Earth to Helen Thomas: the Jewish homeland has been Israel since the Exodus.
On the other hand, how much love do the liberals and the media (again, sorry for the repeat) have for muslim terrorists? The Washington Post published a story that included a mention that our intel services were monitoring the communications of a top muslim terrorist leader. The terrorist read it and immediately stopped using that computer and that cell phone, which allowed him to avoid an airstrike. Thanx, WaPo!
“I do not think that Hamas is a terrorist organization.” That statement comes from (surprise, surprise) the Prime Minister of the muslim nation that sent the convoy loaded with activists and militants to break through the Israeli blockade of Gaza. It is beyond time to kick Turkey out of NATO and classify them as supporters of terrorism.
It is truly amazing to witness the lengths that the UN will go to in order to support Islamic terrorists. Now, the UN is trying to say that the American use of drone aircraft to kill our enemies is illegal. How much Afghani opium have those dolts been smoking?
There is one person in the news lately who is an enemy of the Armed Forces of the United States, and is an ally of the folks in Saudi Arabia who wish to impose Shariah Law throughout the world. This person would probably side with Shariah Law over our Constitution. This person is none other than Elena Kagan, The Chosen One’s SCOTUS nominee. That link come to y’all courtesy of Poll Katz e-mailer “Ron”.
The Religion of Peace was in the news again on Sunday, with two American citizens being arrested at JFK Airport while on their way to Somalia to help Al-Qaeda kill Americans there. One of them had been quoted as saying he’d return to America, which he called a “crap hole” to kill if the leaders told him to. If America is such a “crap hole”, then we need to send all of those Followers of the Pedophilic False Prophet back to their lovely sandboxes.
The Taliban has shown just how “merciful” they and Allah are. They executed a 7-year old boy supposedly for spying.
The World Cup starts Friday, but even though islamic nations are involved, the muslim leaders of Somalia have declared that spectator sports are unislamic, and those caught watching the World Cup on television face execution. It just doesn’t fit into their 7th century mindset and prevents young men from carrying out jihad.
Helen Thomas’ remarks about the Jews of Israel were FINALLY enough to get her fired (“immediate retirement” was the official terminology, but…), but there is another liberal media hound who is defending her and saying she was right. Yes, some people still allow Rosie O’Donnell on television and radio for some unknown reason.
Back to the liberal media for a moment. We now have another high-ranking member of the media finally admitting that he’s a creature of the extreme left, probably because he was having a hard time hiding it. The Deputy Political Director at ABC News is leaving the network to join the media and political arm of the SEIU. Can you see the shock on my face? Me neither.
The Crawfish believes that this father should not face any charges at all. The cops should have asked for a re-enactment as part of their investigation and then declared the actions completely justified. Thanx to Poll Katz e-mailer “Ginny” for that story.
Color me completely unsurprised, but it appears that the whole H1N1 flu scare was as much of a lie as The Prophet Algoracle’s Glo-Bull Warming. When municipalities were reporting that any death possibly related to flu-like symptoms were to be classified as H1N1-related, that was a giveaway. When the expected pandemic never occurred despite the scare mongering and numbers inflation, it became time to FOLLOW THE MONEY!
OhgoodLord! California’s Representative Linda Sanchez says that white supremacist groups were the driving force behind Arizona’s anti-illegal immigrant law. They will say ANYTHING to get the Hispanic vote!
Mexican teens attempting to illegally cross the border threw rocks at a Border Patrolman this week. The Border Patrolman, facing deadly force from multiple sources, fired on them and killed one. The Mexican government is angry. Dear Presidente Calderone, screw you! YOUR people were the aggressors and should have ALL been killed.
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.
"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
