Sorry for being a day late with the column. I had computer problems requiring tech support on Wednesday, but like a really bad old movie once proclaimed…I’m baaaaaaaack!
If the conservatives in the GOP really want to hammer the left with some campaign ads, I’d suggest that the theme be: “Democrats believe the Constitution to be an extreeeeeeme right wing document. We believe in supporting and defending the Constitution of the United States. Which side are you on?” There will be more on this later in the column.
One of the absolute best local talk radio guys, who happens to be one of the regular guest hosts for both Limbaugh and Hannity, is WBAP’s Mark Davis. He is also a very good op-ed columnist. His response to the GOP’s 45-page long “Pledge to America” is a simple 12-point statement that would show that the GOP really has learned a lesson or 12 in the past decade, and especially in the past 4 years. The Crawfish cannot find a single sentence in Mark’s 12 points that I disagree with.
The now-convicted Times Square Bomber stated at his sentencing hearing, “the war with Muslims has just begun.” Well, the American media and our political class want you to believe such nonsense. Of course, it is a big lie, as Islam has been at war with the rest of the world for over 1300 years.
Which side is our President and his party on in that war? Their policy of bringing illegal combatants captured on foreign battlefields into American civilian courts and giving them Constitutional rights that they do not deserve has borne fruit for the enemies of America, including the President and his party. They wanted these illegal combatants set free, and the judge in the first case is helping them by not allowing witness testimony because of possible harsh interrogation techniques. Illegal combatants do not get P.O.W. status or any other rights according to the Geneva Accords. They can be interrogated however the capturing military force deems necessary, and they can be summarily executed. Since they were not within our nation, they get no rights according to our Constitution.
The White House showed its utter contempt for our military and military families last Saturday. The family of a Medal of Honor recipient was invited to tour the White House the day after they laid Vernon Baker to rest at Arlington National Cemetery. When they got to the White House, they were turned away because Baker’s grandson, at all of 10 years old, was wearing shorts and a t-shirt with his grandfather’s photo on it. For the family of a Medal of Honor recipient, President Crawfish would have attended the funeral and lead the tour personally.
We called it! The socialists and other union schmucks who attended the “One Nation” rally in DC not only had pitiful numbers (they are still claiming almost as good attendance numbers as the Beck/Palin rally, despite photographic evidence to the contrary), but they also left the place a wreck. The last two conservative rallies on the National Mall (Beck/Palin and Gathering of Eagles III) saw the place being left with nary a piece of trash. The past two anti-Constitution rallies (“One Nation” and the Kenyan Coronation) have left trash everywhere. What do you expect from a bunch of people who want everybody ELSE to do the work while THEY get the benefits? Leeches have no respect for our nation or our national monuments.
So…Rahm “Ballerina” Emanuel has decided to leave his post as White House Chief of Staff in order to run for the position of Mayor in Chicago. First of all, it is obvious that he wants to desert the sinking ship before the lifeboats fill up. Secondly, how can he run for Mayor of Chicago if he doesn’t have a residence in that city? Oh, that’s right. He’s just going along with the Democrat tradition of getting elected in places that you don’t live. Let’s see, there’s one of the Kennedy family who held a House seat from Rhode Island when the family all lived in Taxachusetts. The junior Senator from Noo Yawk is originally from Corruptionois, but had residency in Arkansas for about 30 years before running for the Senate. Residency? We don’t need no stinkin’ residency! Lastly, Rahmbo was the intermediary between The Chosen One and Governor Blago during the Senate Seat Sweepstakes, and that retrial will be held just a month before the mayoral election.
While we’re in the Chicago area, we might as well check in on Representative Jan Schakowsky. Poor Jan is caught up in the liberal talking points, saying that believing in the principles of the Constitution are “some sort of revolutionary plan” and calling people who actually know what the Constitution says “EXTREEEEEME” and “Tenthers!” Yes, they have come up with a new derogatory term for folks who have read the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. The Tenth is the enemy of the liberals, because it says, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” In other words…if the Constitution doesn’t SPECIFICALLY give the feds power, then they can’t have it. That is in direct opposition to everything the Democrats have put forth since Woodrow Wilson.
Michelle (***sigh***) Malkin’s column this past Wednesday was a dagger to the heart of Big Labor if any of the union thugs could be bothered to read something other than “The Audacity of a Dope”. Notice how the SEIU has spent fortunes in political activity while the pension funds of the workers have been drying up. Notice as well that the pension funds of the union bosses are still completely funded and healthy. Just like at my current employer, unions do nothing but screw over the workers while making the organizers rich.
California has uncovered evidence that over $69,000,000.00 of state WELFARE money has been spent out of state over the past 3 years. Lots of that money has been spent in Las Vegas, Hawaii, Florida, and aboard cruise ships. Defenders of the state’s leeches say that it is less than 1% of the welfare money handed out over that time period. The Crawfish’s response is that you hand out waaaaayyyyy too much money to the lazy leeches. The defenders also say that the leeches have spent that money out of state while visiting sick relatives…on cruise ships? In Vegas casinos? On Hawaiian beaches? I’m sorry, but that is pure bovine excrement.
In the category of What Do You Really Expect From Liberal Congresscritters, we have Judiciary Chairman, Rep. John Conyers writing a check on an account that has no money to pay for his driver’s license renewal. That’s kinda like spending a trillion on Obamacare when there’s no money in the Treasury, ain’t it? This is the same John Conyers whose wife was recently sentenced to 3+ years in prison on bribery and corruption charges in Detroit.
I don’t care who you are, this is funny! Is the cereal as over-hyped as the man?
The House, showing their cowardice and contempt for the people who hired them, voted to adjourn this week instead of doing their job and passing a budget and voting on whether or not to raise taxes dramatically on all taxpayers, including some folks who currently pay ZERO income tax. The Senate couldn’t discuss those issues either, but they found the time for this bit of extremely important legislation. The Democrats know that if they raise taxes now, they will all lose in November, so they will do that in the lame duck session. Meanwhile, they will go home and campaign on…well, not on their record. That’s for sure!
HA HA HA HA!!!!!!!! The Democrats are dumber than we thought. It seems that a bunch of them are pushing for The Arrogant Imbecile to be named Chairman of the DNC. Gibbs is the biggest idiot to hold the White House Press Secretary position in decades, but they think he needs a promotion? PLEASE make that happen, Dims!
Please post your comments (the ones fit for a public website) on the RedWhiteBlueNews edition. It is a great website, and I need to justify my existence there.
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 precept of the Koran is perpetual war against all who deny that Mohamed is the prophet of God. The vanquished may purchase their lives, by the payment of tribute; the victorious may be appeased by a false and delusive promise of peace; and the faithful follower of the prophet may submit to the imperious necessities of defeat: but the command to propagate the Moslem creed by the sword is always obligatory, when it can be made effective. The commands of the prophet may be performed alike, by fraud, or by force." John Quincy Adams
