A big Crawfish welcome to my new readers at RedWhiteBlueNews. Stand by for news, outrage, sarcasm, snarkiness, hilarity, political incorrectness, and skewering of the enemies of our nation and our Constitution. We try to deliver all of the above on a regular basis.
Over the weekend, we remembered the events of September 11, 2001. Dan Calabrese of North Star National has a solid suggestion for how we should have properly commemorated the day. And for those of you who haven’t been readers of mine for long, here’s what The Crawfish had to say three years ago about my memories of that day. Tina Trimble Belliston takes a look at what has happened in the succeeding 9 years, and she doesn’t like it very much. I like her style!
For the absolute knee-slapping funny quote of the week, we look to our esteemed Dear Leader who bleated ““I believe government should be lean; government should be efficient. I believe government should leave people free to make the choices they think are best for themselves and their families, so long as those choices don’t hurt others.” Does he actually expect us to believe that line of bovine excrement? Does he believe it himself? The story has another crazy point buried deep within. It seems that 15% of polled Americans believe that Obama wants a smaller government. How much crack and LSD have those 15% consumed in the past 19 months?
This really is getting ridiculous. We all thought that it was crazy to confirm a tax cheat as Treasury Secretary. Then Hilda Solis and her husband had to pay thousands in back taxes before she could get confirmed as Labor Secretary, and personnel from her department currently owe upwards of $7,400,000.00. Members of Homeland Security Ditz Napolitano’s department owe over $37,000,000.00 in back taxes. House and Senate staff members owe well over $9,000,000.00. Members of the Federal Reserve owe over a million. The Affirmative Action Attorney General’s Injustice Department folks owe $14,300,000.00+ in back taxes, but since they are the ones who enforce the laws, they don’t care what the laws actually say. The fish, though, does rot from the head, and 41 members of Barack Obama’s staff owe $831,055.00 in back taxes. You see, if we could reign in a bit of spending and manage to get Democrats to pay their damned taxes, we’d have a budget surplus!
“Now the U.N. remains the single most important global institution. We are constantly reminded of its value.” Those words came out of the mouth of Her Thighness this week. The Crawfish wonders what Hillary! sees as value in the Useless Nations. Could it be the propping up of dictators? Maybe it is the support of militant Islam. Possibly it is the constant America bashing. Then again, there is always the possibility that it is the anti-Israel stances of the UN, which mirror the desires of most of the Democratic Party. Meanwhile, over the Labor Day weekend, the UN Secretary General and 60 of his top minions met in Austria to go over their plans to take charge of the whole world’s agenda. The sooner we can get rid of that organization, the better.
The Crawfish wholeheartedly agrees with this family. Seventeen years is far too long for a murderer to sit on death row. At least they finally got closure. Maureen Faulkner’s police officer husband, Danny, was murdered by Black Panther Party activist Mumia Abu Jamal (real name: Wesley Cook) on December 9, 1981, and his case is STILL in the courts thanks to a federal judge who had no business interfering with the death sentence. If the crime was adjudicated in state courts, then why does the federal court system have any jurisdiction? They DON’T! For a state capital murder case, the penalty phase should start the day after the conviction phase. Once the sentence is pronounced, the state court of criminal appeals should have 180 days to hear and decide their phase of the case. If it goes to the state supremes, they should have 180 days to act. One year from the date that the sentence was pronounced, the sentence should be carried out.
Pennsylvania’s Governor, incidentally…the D.A. in the Mumia Abu Jamal case, is losing what’s left of his leftist mind. He says that “wackos” are taking over the Republican Party in Congress. So Ed Rendell’s definition of a “wacko” is someone who believes in the Constitutional limitations on the federal government. That’s nice.
Don’t you DARE criticize King Barack I or the Obamacare bill (have the Dems finally read that thing yet?), especially if you are an insurance company. And don’t even THINK about raising your rates to compensate for all of the extra costs incurred because of this bill. If you violate these commandments, HHS Secretary Sebelius will cut your company off from future customers and future programs under Obamacare! Where does this power freak get such authority? It sure as heck ain’t in the Constitution of the United States. The sooner we can get this and all of the other bills passed by Queen of the House Red Nanny P-Lousy and Prince Dingy Harry Reid revoked, the better.
Lemme see if I’ve got this right. The Administration of King Barack I opposes all efforts of energy companies to drill for oil in the US, and has tried to stop offshore drilling, but it gives over $1,000,000,000.00 to MEXICO for them to drill? Am I missing something here? Oh, maybe it is a “jobs program” for Americans who want to be illegal aliens in Mexico.
On a related issue, the Obama Administration is now BRAGGING that they have caught and released over 506,000 illegal aliens who are now fugitives within our borders. This is why you release them on the shores of El Salvador instead of within our country, ya morons. When are we going to put some adults in control of our government?
Now I get it! The Democrats in the House and Senate get their brilliant ideas after having dope smoking parties in their offices! “Munchie attacks cause 2,000 page bill in Congress. Film at eleven!”
The Congressional Racist Caucus is back in the news. It seems that Charlie Rangel and Eddie Bernice Johnson ain’t the only members to have serious ethics problems. Johnson was busted giving scholarship money, intended for blacks in her district, to her own family and the family of one of her staffers. Now Jawja congresscritter Sanford Bishop has been nailed doin’ the exact same thing. Of course, this is all to be blamed on Fox News, George W. Bush, and the eeeeevilll racist Republicans.
I’ve been sayin’ it for the past two years to anybody who would listen, but the only people who would agree with me were conservatives who actually pay attention to politics and economics. Now Thomas Sowell points out that the main cause of the economic downturn of 2008-2010 was the collapse of the credit market. The credit market was crunched by the problems of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, which were shielded in Congress by Chris “Countrywide” Dodd and Bawney Fwank, while notable liberals such as Jamie “I caused 9-11” Gorelick and Franklin Raines made millions (while falsifying the books to show Freddie and Fannie to be fiscally healthy, but that’s another story). The Community Reinvestment Act, another disastrous product of Jimmuh Cahtuh that was bolstered by Billy Jeff Clinton, helped immensely. Of course, all good liberals and the media, but I repeat myself, know that Jorge Boosh is to blame for all of it anyway.
The Incredibly Arrogant Imbecile is at it again. Our esteemed White House Press Secretary is doing his best to make ol’ Baghdad Bob look intelligent and truthful. I mean, does he really expect anybody who is actually paying attention to believe him when he says, “By virtually any measure, our economy is in a better place than it was two years ago”? That ranks right up there with “I did not have sexual relations with that woman…Miss Lewinsky.”
Do liberals really care about the American worker or American industry? Uh, no. In the name of “green”, they have cost hundreds of American jobs and forced dangerous, mercury-filled light bulbs into American homes. Did y’all know that if one of those bulbs breaks, it is recommended to bring a hazardous materials cleanup team in to clean up the mercury? If one of the bulbs dies, you can’t even toss it in the trash, since it is considered hazardous waste!
If the Obamites were so in favor of building the economy and small business, wouldn’t they have the support of the US Chamber of Commerce? Well, since the Chamber is vehemently opposing the socialists, The Crawfish is left to believe that the Unholy Troika of Obama-Reid-Pelosi might be bad for American businesses. Do y’all agree?
A Congressional race in South Carolina gives us a story worth pondering for a moment. Longtime Representative John Spratt has agreed to debate his Republican challenger, but he demanded that there be no cameras or audio recording devices in the auditorium. Might that be so that he can lie about whatever he says in the debate, like a typical liberal, and there will be no evidence?
The Affirmative Action Attorney General’s Injustice Department and the Feingold campaign in Wisconsin have teamed up to violate federal election law (nothing new for Holder’s bunch) and screw over American military personnel who are Wisconsin voters. Federal law requires military absentee ballots to be sent out 45 days ahead of an election in order to give the military personnel enough time to fill out their ballots and send them home in the military mail. The State of Wisconsin, knowing that military personnel are likely to support Russ Feingold’s opponent, reached a deal with Big Brother and the Holder Company to slash 2 weeks from that time, meaning many military voters will be “disenfranchised”.
The Followers of the Pedophilic False Prophet gave The Crawfish a good chuckle this week. Reacting to the possibility that a single copy of the Quran could be burned by a nutcase preacher looking for publicity, a major muslim group called for the Useless Nations “to issue an international law criminalizing all forms of offense against religions under any circumstances.” This coming from a religion that routinely burns or otherwise destroys Christian materials, imprisons or executes anyone who preached Christianity in muslim nations, and builds mosques upon the destroyed houses of worship of the locals whenever they score a major military victory. Heck, there were attacks on Christians trying to worship in Indonesia just this week! The muslims also have a tendency to violently riot whenever there is some outrage, real or just perceived, committed against Islam (like now or when a Danish newspaper published a CARTOON showing Muhammed with a bomb in his head diaper), and dance in the streets when innocent civilians are murdered by Islamic terrorists. For more on the Religion of Perpetual Outrage, check out this column by Michelle (***sigh***) Malkin. As per usual, it has lots of embedded links.
The Religion of Peace struck again in Filthadelphia on Friday. Wait…should it be the Religion of Pieces?
Somebody seems to have a rather highly inflated opinion of herself and her status among Americans. The Crawfish, along with probably 98% of the American public, didn’t even know they had split up…nor did I even care!
