Quite a bit to discuss this week, so place your seatback in the up position, stow your tray tables, and tighten your 4-point harnesses. This is not gonna be a smooth ride!
On July 17, 1996, shortly after I asked for Mrs. Crawfish’s hand in marriage, 230 people were killed aboard Trans World Airways flight 800 when it exploded 12 minutes after takeoff over the ocean off Long Island. The official government report said that a spark of unknown origin set off the vapors in the center fuel tank, which was empty for that flight. A large number of people with experience in aviation mishap investigation and military weapon systems contest that conclusion. They say that the most likely reason for the jet to explode over the ocean was the impact of an anti-aircraft missile. There is puh-lenty of evidence of a government cover-up, especially since the government’s point person on the case was Deputy Assistant Attorney General Jamie Gorelick, who later put up the walls of separation between our intelligence agencies which made 9-11 much easier for the muslims to accomplish. Gorelick also went on to earn millions of dollars helping to run Fannie Mae, with policies that directly led to the collapse of the credit market and the economic downturn that gave us President B. Hussein Obama. She resigned from that post to take a seat on the 9-11 Commission, where she whitewashed her own role in that disaster and blamed the intelligence services for following the rules that she had put in place. Whatever the cause, remember the victims.
Do y’all remember the final wrangling for votes on Obamacare? It came down to a few Democrat Congresscritters, led by Bart Stupak (D-Michiganistan), who opposed any taxpayer funded abortions. King Barack I and Queen P-Lousy promised Stupak and the rest of us that there was language somewhere in the 2300+ pages (that we would have to enact before we could find out what was in it) that would prohibit taxpayer funded abortions. Well, y’all can all say it with me…BARACK AND NANCY ARE LIARS! The Health and Human Services Department is giving Pennsylvania $160,000,000.00 under Obamacare guidelines to set up one of those “high-risk insurance pools”, and this pool will pay for any abortion that is legal in the state. Hopefully, there are lawsuits already being filed in federal court against this.
Speaking of liars, Prince Dingy Harry was questioned about national figures that show approximately 17% of construction workers are illegal aliens. His response was “not here in Nevada.” Does he mean that the number is higher in Nevada or does he believe We the People are stooopid enough to believe anything he spews?
The horrid refereeing provided by FIFA for the World Cup continued on through the championship game, where the English referee showed blatant favoritism for the Spanish team, including denying the Dutch an obvious corner kick and an easy-to-call free kick both with about 8 minutes left in extra time, the last of which led directly to the Spanish goal in their 1-0 victory. The ref thought the game was primarily all about him, secondarily about Spain, and by the way the Dutch were playing as well. Spain was indeed the better team, but the Dutch were robbed.
When she was in her confirmation, Affirmative Action SCOTUS nominee Sotomayor promised that she would support the 2nd Amendment. In the cases that have come before the Court since then, she has proven herself to be a LIAR and anti-Constitutionalist. Elena Kagan is also pledging to support the whole Constitution, including the 2nd Amendment, but knowing her past do you believe a word of it? The Crawfish sure as @(*)@&%% doesn’t. The NRA doesn’t either, and they are trying to educate the public about Kagan and her opposition to our Constitutional rights.
His Majesty made a “recess appointment” this past week for the position of head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. He didn’t have to do it because the GOP has been blocking the confirmation of his nominee. Far from it. It is the Democrats who have been avoiding confirmation hearings, because they KNOW how controversial he is and that it would reopen the whole Obamacare debate. They really don’t want that debate within 120 days of the mid-term elections, especially with these comments on Donald Berwick’s record: “Any health care funding plan that is just equitable civilized and humane must, must redistribute wealth from the richer among us to the poorer and the less fortunate. Excellent health care is by definition redistributional” and “I am romantic about the NHS (Britain’s failed socialized health care system); I love it. All I need to do to rediscover the romance is to look at health care in my own country.”
Claw contributor “Peppermint2” sent along a terrific short piece by Andy McCarthy of the National Review Online. It seems kinda funny how the Affirmative Action Attorney General and his Injustice Department are going after Arizona, where the new anti-illegal immigration law is not yet in effect, instead of Rhode Island, where the same law has been in place for a while and the cops enforce it and support it. Could it be that Obama and Holder are just doing this for a political splash before the elections? Probably, since the law in Rhode Island has already been upheld by the First Circuit Court of Appeals in Estrada v. Rhode Island, in which the Court noted that the Supreme Court had said in Muehler v. Mena that police officers can ask for anybody’s immigration status verification whenever they want? By the way…Muehler v. Mena was a UNANIMOUS decision. Even Ginsburg agreed!
A female reporter asked Propaganda Minister Gibbs a question regarding immigration law that completely floored him. He looked like Obama without TOTUS. Of course, the question is on that needs to be shouted by the media, but they won’t. A tip of The Crawfish’s hat goes to my Gahdfaddah of blogging, GunnyG.
Iran’s pet terrorist group Hezbollah has been caught setting up a network in Tijuana, Mexico. Since The Chosen One wants muslim terrorists to defeat us anyway, this will probably have no effect on his border policies. Of course, if the Hezbullies had brains, they’d be setting up across from the Arizona border, since the California border actually does have fencing and active Border Patrol patrolling, while Arizona’s border is wide open by federal decree.
All I can say about Stan Cox is that he has to be one of the biggest unadulterated morons in the history of the Washington Post. Not going to work on hot days is an option? Is he on crack? Sorry, dumb-bass, but I’ve got bills to pay! This week, The Crawfish started working night shift. That means I drive 40-50 minutes to work in the hot part of the day. This week I am doing so without air conditioning, because my ventilation system on my 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe crapped out. I need my a/c so I can get to work and be something other than a stinky sweatball!
It looks like Red Nanny P-Lousy is safe within her own district now. Than Franthithco has banned the sale of pets other than fish within the city. Well, she IS very much a dog and is the pet of the lunatic left! The people of that city really do need to wake up and smell reality once in a while. If Osama bin Laden set off a nuke there, I’d feel sorry for the loss of a lot of landmarks, but that’s about it.
With less than 120 days before the mid-term elections, the Democrats are forming a circular firing squad. What did those governors really expect from a hard-left Administration coupled with an extreme left Congress?
Y’all know that concrete canyon in El Lay that has been the scene of many memorable chase scenes in movies? You know, the one that sometimes has a few puddles in it? In order to greatly expand their regulatory powers to include anything that might find its way into that canyon, which is in reality the storm sewer runoff for the city, B. Hussein Obama’s EPA has declared it to be “traditional navigable water” and therefore subject to all of the regulatory powers under the Clean Water Act. Next week, they plan on giving the same designation to Pamela Anderson’s nether regions.
Whodathunkit? One of the biggest groups supporting Comrade Zero in his campaign was the teachers’ unions. Now they are angry with him and calling for the resignation of his Secretary of Education, Alikskyite Arne Duncan. You know him…the friend of Barack who wrecked the Chicago schools but has the same socialist ideology as B. Hussein Obama so he got a big promotion.
Here’s a big difference between mostly liberal Colorado and Texas. In Texas, this guy would be free, with no charges pending, and would be hailed as a hero and patriotic American, while the other two would be in jail awaiting trial.
The Dems keep blaming W for all of our problems, but take a look at the unemployment numbers since 1995 and notice that as soon as the Democrats’ policies started taking effect the numbers jump! It is time to put the blame where it belongs, on the heads of P-Lousy and Dingy Harry!
Here’s a WONDERFUL idea from the Democrats! Representative Chaka Fattah (D-Filthadelphia) is introducing legislation that would tax you 1% on every ATM withdrawal. If you read the linked article within this article, you’ll see that the proposed legislation would actually put a 1% tax on EVERY debit card, credit card, or cash transaction with the exception of stock purchases. They even want to tax transfers from your savings account to your checking account. What’s next? Are they going to tax you for using the restroom? (Maybe I shouldn’t have written that…it might give ‘em ideas)
Then again, His Majesty’s Science Czar wants to take the taxes from Crrap-And-Tax and redistribute that money. He doesn’t want to redistribute it to our own people, but rather to the “global south”, such as South America, Africa, and southern Asia. Where does he find these socialist idiots?
How do you make a financial system overhaul bill unConstitutional? Well, I mean besides letting Chris Dodd have anything to do with it. How about putting racial and gender quotas into it? Yeah, that’s sure to help the economy.
Blacks in Oakland didn’t approve of a jury’s verdict regarding the death of a black man by a white cop. The result? Rioting, as per usual. Imagine if whites did that for every trial involving a white victim of a black perp when the result was not a death penalty conviction. Those rioters are gonna be free to commit all sorts of mayhem starting this week, since Oakland is laying off 10% of the police force because of budget shortfalls. Just like every liberal city does when their spending outstrips income, they are cutting cops and expect firefighters next instead of cutting spending on the leeches that inhabit Oakland. Take a look at the list of crimes that the cops will no longer respond to.
Every once in a while, Michelle (***sigh***) Malkin has a post that just simply needs to be passed along. This is one of those posts.
The NAACP has gone over the edge as well, as if y’all didn’t see that one a mile away. Now they are protesting in favor of the white SEIU thugs who beat up a black Tea Party member outside of a Representative Russ Carnahan town hall meeting. Yes, these white guys beat up a black man and called him the n-term multiple times, but the NAACP supports them. In other words, the NAACP is now simply a part of the SEIU and takes their orders from the union thug bosses.
The NAACP had its national convention, and invited micHELLe to be one of their main speakers. Okay, so she’s the First Lady, so that fits. The main action, however, was to vote on a resolution condemning the “racist elements” of the Tea Party movement. Sorry, but the Tea Party movement is open to all Americans who prefer the Constitution over our current government. Minorities are welcomed with open arms. The Crawfish hereby issues an open challenge to the NAACP to show us examples of racism within the Tea Party movement. If the NAACP wants to look for racism, they should look at themselves for if THEY weren’t racists their title would be National Association for the Advancement of American People.
Props to Megyn Kelly of Fox News for taking on the head of the New Black Panther Party, Malik Shabazz, regarding the Philly voter intimidation case. She got the idjut to actually say that the people who are upset about Holder’s actions are the real racists. Here’s part one of the interview, and here is part two. He even says that the perp’s calls for killing of “crackers” and white babies are words that have been “manipulated” by whites and Republicans. He even calls for reparations for all blacks, as if any living blacks were slaves. Megyn schooled his dumb-bass. Of course, she could have really nuked him if she had played this video of Shabazz praising Osama bin Laden, Al-Qaeda, and the Taliban back in March of 2002. Thanz again to blogger “GunnyG” for this one.
Another world-renowned racist decided that he hadn’t been in the headlines lately, so he had to make a stoooopid and outlandish statement. Jesse-be-the-Jackson weighed in on the departure of LeBron James from the Cleveland Cavaliers and said that the Cavs owner has a “slave master mentality” and was treating LeBron like a “runaway slave”. Really? Do slaves get paid over $15,000,000.00 per year to play games? Why’d The Great Shakedown Artist have to bring racism into question? The answer, of course, is that he needed another headline and someone to shake down for a few million.
The liberals’ war against religion continues. A University of Illinois professor of Catholicism has been fired because he agrees with the Catholic Church’s teachings that homosexuality is naturally and morally wrong. Political correctness calls that “hate speech”, but bashing religion is FAVORED speech. Poll Katz e-mailer “Ginny” gets the hat tip for that’un.
Hold on…they’re at war with all religions EXCEPT Islam. The Administration of Bu’raq al Obama is still pushing it’s point that Islam has nothing to do with any of the violence in the world, especially in Afghanistan. Really? Then why is it that one of the central themes of their supposedly holy book is that all non-muslims must be converted, enslaved, or put to the sword, and the whole world must be conquered for Allah?
Here’s an update on the four Christians who were peacefully handing out Christian literature outside of a muslim festival in Dearborn, MI. They’re getting charged with disturbing the peace. Their actual crime is standing up for Christianity in a muslim-dominated part of our nation.
The Obama Administration, while denying that they do anything to oppose Israel, has now been caught partially funding a Libyan attempt to break the Israeli blockade of Gaza. So when exactly is this story going to be mentioned on the network news or in the Noo Yawk Slimes? Regular Claw contributor “Beachmom” gets the credit for this one.
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.
