Another nutty week has passed, and we’ve got a lot to discuss. Ya know it was one of those weeks when The Crawfish isn’t even getting into the ludicrous decision by a judge saying that California’s constitution is unConstitutional because it now bans queer marriage. I could do a whole series of columns on that decision, but (grits teeth) I shall refrain.
Well, I’m glad to see that some of the Republicans have finally awakened and started doing some research on what the socialists are doing with OUR tax dollars. A report was released this week detailing some of the expenditures from the so-called “stimulus” bill. The report is over 70 pages long, but you can get a good idea from scanning the table of contents. Let’s see….$54,000,000.00 to the Mohegan Tribe (which is swimming in money from their mega-casino and resort) for a tribal government center that will also include a practice facility for the WNBA’s Connecticut Sun (which plays in the Mohegan Sun Arena, part of the Mohegan Sun Resort), $1,200,000.00 for research into marketing video games to seniors, $193,956.00 to “estimate the impact of stimulus funds on the perceptions of citizens and the choices of local community decision makers” (here’s a hint: if the people knew what you were spending it on, they’d be even MORE PISSED OFF!), $554,763.00 to replace the windows in a Forest Service Visitor Center near Mount St. Helens (the center was closed in 2007 and boarded up, with no plans to ever re-open). Do ya get the point? Outrage after outrage.
I found it to be quite telling when the front page photos in most major newspapers on Thursday showed people celebrating the fact that a judge had ruled in favor of unfettered illegal immigration. Yes, let’s CELEBRATE the breaking of our federal laws. Once upon a time, America’s newspapers were in favor of the United States. Too bad for them that the judge just ruled on her liberal beliefs and not the law. The basis of the Arizona law was already upheld by the Supreme Court with the 2005 Muehler v. Mena case, which happened to be a unanimous decision! Besides, if local and state enforcement of federal laws causes sooooo many problems for the feds, then let’s just tell all local and state cops to stop enforcing federal laws such as kidnapping, bank robbery, illegal drug possession/distribution/manufacturing/growing…ya see where I’m goin’?
The US newspapers don’t mention a word about it, but Canada Free PressBand of Bloggers gets credit for that one! points out that the judge in the case has no say in the matter. Only the Supreme Court can rule on it. The Constitution’s Article III, Sec. 2, clause 2 says: “In all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, and those in which a State shall be Party, the Supreme Court shall have original Jurisdiction.” Bobbie of the Band of Bloggers gets credit for this'un.
I guess even Lindsey Graham has an occasional good day. He must have read The Crawfish’s American Tradition Party Platform 2008 and decided that the ending of birthright citizenship for babies born to non-drybacks might be a good idea, although regular Claw reader and blogger BrianR has pointed out repeatedly that the 14th Amendment’s language does not give birthright citizenship to persons born here who are not subject to the jurisdiction of the United States (meaning citizens of other nations).
As we have expected, the Administration is exploring ways to stop enforcing our immigration laws and give amnesty, but they know the Democrats would lose their majority in Congress PERMANENTLY if they voted for amnesty. Well, there are some memos have surfaced detailing steps that the Administration can take to circumvent Congress and the American people. Yes, Obama and his minions will do whatever it takes to give blanket amnesty to non-drybacks and to open our borders for all. Do they really want blood running freely in the streets? Do they want the people to revolt? Well…..that WOULD allow them to throw away the 2nd Amendment and declare martial law.
WANTED FOR ACCESSORY TO MURDER: Barack Obama, Eric Holder, and Janet Napolitano. A Catholic nun was murdered over the weekend by an illegal alien with multiple DUI arrests. Federal authorities had released him into the population again, even though they claim he was eventually going to be deported.
The Mexican drug cartels have placed a bounty of $1,000,000.00 on the head of Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, AZ. This is a direct threat from foreign adversaries against American authorities. Will the Administration do anything about it? Yeah, right…figger the odds. They WANT Sheriff Joe gone!
Back during the 2008 Pennsylvania Primaries, The Crawfish downloaded the Obama campaign manifesto, “The Blueprint for Change”. I ran a 16-part series tearing it apart line by line as a warning to all who were buying into the hype of “HOPEANDCHANGE! (but don’t ask any real questions)”. Now that we’ve had 18 months of The Chosen One, are my warnings proving to be true?
HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Tax Cheat Timmy admitted on ABC that the “Recovery Summer” is nothing more than bovine excrement! He said that some jobs will soon be available, which will cause people who have quit searching for jobs (and are therefore not counted now in the unemployment numbers) to start searching for jobs again, and the unemployment percentage will go back up as a result. That is going to precipitate the numbers going back down if the jobs really do reappear, which he is guessing that they will eventually do. This does mean that the real numbers are probably much higher than the official 9+%.
The “No Shi’ite, Sherlock!” moment of the week comes from Israeli President Shimon Peres. In an interview, he noted that there are now millions of muslim voters (WHY???) in Britainistan, and the Brit Members of Parliament are pandering to them with pro-arab and pro-“Palestinian” bias that dates back to the partitioning of the middle east.
Over the years, and especially since the 2008 primaries, the liberals of America have repeatedly called conservatives “fascists”. Well, our good friend GunnyG has a new column up that examines fascism by its definition and compares it to everything the left in America has been doing. Guess who the fascists are!
Every once in a while, the courts in California do something that is completely shocking. Most of the time, it is not a good shock. This time, it is a very good shock!
The Dim-ocrats’ poster boy for the lack of good mental health care in our country is at it again. Representative Grayson of Florida has used over $73,000.00 of YOUR tax dollars to produce a DVD of his greatest accomplishments during his term in office and mail them to all of his constituents. Since this was not done by his campaign staff, it does not count as a campaign mailing, so all expenses are paid for by us. So what are his accomplishments? Making the rest of the Dim-ocrats look positively smart?
The people of Taxachusetts are seeing the fruits of unfettered rule of Democrats yet again. This time, the Dims in the legislature are trying to take away the citizens’ right to petition for ballot initiatives. In other words, they are going to completely shut the people out of the legislative process, with the sole exception of who they get to vote for. Since they have conditioned the majority of the people to vote for Dims no matter how screwed up they are, the legislators have no fear of the people. Do those people need a new Lexington and Concord?
Uh oh. The Dims are showing their racism and anti-Semitism again. For the millionth time The Crawfish must ask why Jews mostly vote for these people.
Ya know, I thought the Democrats were the ones going absolutely bat guano about companies that received bailout funds giving their executives huge bonuses that were essentially paid for by the taxpayers. As ESPN’s Lee Corso would say, “Not so fast, my friend!” His Eminence Sultan Bu’raq al Obama has appointed Jacob Lew to be the new head of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Mr. Lew was paid $1,100,000.00 by Citigroup, one of the big Wall Street firms that received billions in bailout money, in 2008 and received a bonus of $900,000.00 before leaving to join the Hillary! State Department. Hold on a moment. Aren’t those big bonuses supposedly made to keep the top notch people at their companies? Why did he leave Citi to join Hillary! if he had just gotten such a bonus?
Daniel Flynn has a very timely column that examines the NAACP and their history of racism, which nobody in our government or media will call them on. Thanx to RJ of “Paul Revere’s Riders” for the link.
Okay, here’s a hint for those who want to avoid dying earlier than necessary. If two families want to enjoy themselves on a summer day, but not a single member of either family knows how to swim, the families should NOT go play in a river. This tragedy was caused by sheer stoooopidity, which the families had been stuck on for at least 18 years, as evidenced by the names of the adolescents in the water: DeKendrix Warner (first one in trouble but was saved by someone who jumped in after him), Takeitha Warner, JaMarcus Warner, JaTavious Warner, Litrelle Stewart, LaDairus Stewart, and Latevin Stewart. I don’t know about you, but I didn’t see any of those names in the baby name books when we were starting our family 13 years ago.
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 United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence."
