Okay, Memorial Day weekend is over. The Crawfish is somewhat recovered. There’s lightning in the area, so I’ve gotta get this posted before we get a power hit. Let’s Roll!
The world is condemning Israel for their actions against the terrorist-supporting flotilla, but it was all a set-up by the terrorist groups, the nation that wants to lead the Islamic world like it did from 1453 to the end of WW1 (Turkey), and the leftists of Europe and the United States. The main group organizing the event, International Humanitarian Relief Foundation, is based in Turkey and is a part of the Muslim Brotherhood, one of the main Islamist organizations. Al-Jazeera had a film crew aboard the lead vessel, and they documented the preparations for battle a day before the Israeli actions. The whole exercise was designed to provoke a response from Israel, and that’s just what they got. If these were really “peace activists” like they claimed, then why were they wearing masks and wielding pipes, knives, and firearms when the Israelis attempted to board their vessel? Why did they attack the Israelis with deadly force before the Israelis so much as pointed a single weapon their way? This video shows clearly that the Israelis were NOT firing on the terrorists as they came down the ropes. They were being attacked from the first instant.
While the Obama Administration quickly expressed “regret” over the incident and fully supports the UN’s investigation, which will be run entirely by arabs and other anti-Israel nations, there were actually a few Democrats who saw the incident for what it was and support the Israeli actions.
Here we go again with one of The Crawfish’s pet peeves. Some dumb-bass judge in Connecticut has ruled that two high schools cannot hold their graduation ceremonies in a church because it is an unConstitutional endorsement of religion. Is the school district Congress and is the decision on where to hold the ceremonies a law? If the answer to either question is “NAY”, then the “establishment clause” of the First Amendment, which reads “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”, is not applicable, which means the judge has no clue what she is talking about and is not qualified to be a judge in federal court.
It ain’t just Connecticut this week. There’s a monument in Corruptionois that is eleven stories tall and in need of repair. An atheist is complaining that the repairs would be unConstitutional and is threatening a lawsuit. You see, the monument is a memorial cross, so this MUST be a separation of church and state issue, right? This just proves yet again that liberals not only refuse to read their own bills in Congress, but that none of them have ever really read the Constitution.
This week’s winner of the Golden DUH! Award is British Airways. Somebody’s definitely gonna be unemployed over this gaffe. Actually, probably more than one person, since somebody made the image and somebody else approved it.
A slightly different award, the Golden Bovine Turd Award, goes to Queen of the House Red Nanny P-Lousy, for having the unmitigated gall to say that as a Catholic, she must pursue public policies that are in keeping with the values of Jesus Christ. Just how in the world does support for abortion and opposition to a ban on partial-birth abortions come anywhere close to the values of Jesus Christ? She’s just reminding us that she is a hypocritical liar.
President Obama is going to send 1200 National Guard troops to the border. Well, that is a start in the right direction. Wait…what was that you say? The troops aren’t going there to secure the border against illegal aliens? They’re going there to stop the fictitious flow of guns into Mexico and drugs only into the US? They’re doing the job that Mexican President Calderone requested, and not the job that is required of the federal gummint??? Only in the Era of Obama.
It doesn’t pay to be a union stooge when you try to speak out against someone who knows what he’s talking about, especially if you are too stoooopid to know how much your paycheck is! Noo Joisey Guvna Chris Christie schooled this teacher!
Looks like Tipper Gore has finally had enough of her husband’s going off the edge and is kicking him out of the door to protect her sanity. Can ya blame her?
Everybody outside of Holland knew that Joran van der Sloot was involved with the death and disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba, but his father got him off. Now we know van der Sloot is a serial killer. He is the only suspect in the murder of a woman in Peru over the weekend, and he may get away scot-free yet again. He slipped over the border into Chile before the authorities could catch up with him.
The Crawfish is glad to see that there’s at least one politician who agrees with one of my main ideas regarding illegal immigration. Rand Paul says we shouldn’t be giving citizenship to babies of illegals. Back when I wrote my (only partially tongue in cheek) American Tradition Party Platform 2008, I said that a Constitutional amendment would be required to make this happen. The amendment could be written so simply as to fit right in with the rest of the early amendments, unlike any of today’s bills that are 2000+ pages long and are never read by the people voting upon it. Here’s what it would say, “This Amendment changes the first sentence of Section 1 of Amendment XIV to read ‘All persons naturalized in the United States or born within 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.’” I’d be willing to bet that 80% of the American populace would have no problem with that language.
Joe Sestak wasn’t the only Democratic politician offered a job by the Obama Administration in return for avoiding a primary battle that would use up Democratic Party campaign funds. Andrew Romanoff of Colorado also has some ‘fessin’ up to do. Bribery, just another trait of the most transparent administration in history.
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
