3-30-2011 The Weekly Claw

Okay folks, this is another big one, and there will definitely be a second edition this week. In fact, the draft is already half the size of my normal columns.

Have y’all seen the pics of Tiger’s new girlfriend? Yep, she’s a blonde. Is he gonna turn into another OJ? We thought he was a nice guy until…

So Barack gave a speech on Monday. Did it inspire confidence? Nope. Was it about what I expected? Yep. His reasoning for getting involved in Libya was not explained as well as he probably thinks it was. I agreed with some of it (the “right” and “American” thing to do according to our post WW2 norms), but not all of it (for humanitarian purposes only), and the same reasoning could be used to justify involvement in Iran, Syria, Yemen, Bahrain, etc. He never really defined our goals, saying that the ouster of Gaddhafi would be through political efforts, not military efforts, which doesn’t square with giving air support to the rebel forces that are on the move toward Tripoli. He used, okay overused, the personal pronoun “I” throughout, saying that HE took actions, etc. If this same speech had been given by George W. Bush, the media would be savaging it.

This week, we observed Medal of Honor Day. Okay, not many of y’all knew about it, but it is an official remembrance. A disproportionately high number of awardees of The Medal have been Navy Corpsmen and Army Medics, and most of them were awarded The Medal posthumously. Here is another example of one of our finest, whose bravery was a shining example, yet he refused to carry a weapon. Oh, and it is one of The Crawfish’s pet peeves to hear or see someone refer to it as the CONGRESSIONAL Medal of Honor. It is the Medal of Honor, and it is presented “on behalf of Congress”.

Upchuck Schumer was caught trying to coach other Dim-ocrats into blaming the Tea Party for the looming government shutdown, saying that the Tea Party’s position of wanting budget cuts that amount to less than 4% of the deficit (not 4% of the overall budget) is “extreme”, which he states is the language the “caucus instructed me to use.” With a deficit of $1.6 TRILLION, the left wingnuts are claiming that any cut of over $20 BILLION is “extreme”, and the many of the cuts that they would consider are false savings through accounting and wording tricks. The Dims are purposely working for a shutdown, which they will attempt to blame on the GOP, despite the fact that the people of America know who has jacked spending to these out-of-control levels. They really do think you are stupid enough to believe their outright lies.

What would happen if a member of the press was treating this way by a Republican Administration?

Those states are being forced to make huge budget cuts, and every one of them that is controlled by Republicans is catching hell from unions and other liberals, including the media, for it. Meanwhile, uber-liberal California and Governor Moonbeam are also making those severe cuts, but there is a distinct lack of national attention. You see, the unions and media aren’t standing for workers and middle-class families. They are standing for liberalism.

The protests against budget cuts that would take away freebies for the leeches of society and really good benefits for government workers are not happening only in states controlled by Republican Governors and legislatures. They’re happening overseas as well. The Gimme Generation is getting upset that their free ride is coming to an end. Neal Boortz has a good take on these protests, who is behind them, and where they are headed. The era of socialist entitlements is dying because, as Prime Minister Thatcher said. “Sooner or later you run out of other people’s money!”

The GOP, now that they have control of the House, is reverting back to their liberal, big-government ways. They have forgotten who gave them the control and the messages that were sent in November. The Tea Party is now sending a shot across John Boehner’s bow. Will he get the message?

Does Janet Incompetano actually believe any of the propaganda that she spews forth? Now she is saying that the cities and towns along the border with Mexico are safe and that border security is the best that it has ever been. She’s a worse propagandist than Goebbels, Lord Haw-Haw, and Tokyo Rose. They had SOME talent and had SOME people actually believing them.

On a related note, why do Democrats have such a hard time supporting actions to prevent voter fraud, such as the bill just passed by the Texas House? They claim that producing identification is raaaaaacist, but that’s about as truthful as BillyJeff Clinton saying that he did not have sexual relations with that woman. The ONLY reason that Democrats oppose actions to counter voter fraud is that Democrats ENGAGE in voter fraud in every single election!

The scandal at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, in conjunction with the Eric Holder Department of Injustice and the White House, won’t go away. The amazing thing is that it is not just Fox News doing the investigating. A team from CBS News has been doggedly after all leads, and has even aired two updates since first hitting the story. The team leader has even declared, “CBS will be with this scandal until Holder and Napolitano leave in disgrace and (Rahm) Emanuel is having heart-to-heart chats with a special prosecutor.” The Crawfish tips his hat to “Buck” for sending in this story. The Obama Mexican Gun Scandal as The Crawfish has dubbed it, has even started drawing attention from other news organizations. Now if the GOP has any stones, they will turn this into a major media story. In other words, it will probably go away.

The Administration’s commitment to criminal behavior is taking yet another curious turn. Last week, I mentioned Jamie Gorelick and her complicity in the collapse of the credit and housing markets, which netted her millions. Well, she also was a big factor in the attacks of 9-11, because it was she who put in place the wall of separation between the intelligence agencies. Now the Obama Administration and Eric Holder’s Injustice Department are considering Gorelick for the position of FBI Director. Folks, I can’t make this stuff up! The Crawfish’s good friend Gunny G has some more info on Gorelick’s past over at the Anti-Liberal Zone.

Meanwhile, another failed Fannie Mae executive is the one running the operation in Libya. No wonder it is all screwed up!

When questioned about the statements from both Hillary! and The Chosen One from when they were Senators saying that a President MUST get approval from Congress before going into military action anywhere, and that not doing so is impeachable, Her Thighness had this to say regarding the Libyan campaign: “Well, we would welcome congressional support, but I don't think that this kind of internationally authorized intervention where we are one of a number of countries participating to enforce a humanitarian mission is the kind of unilateral action that either I or President Obama was speaking of several years ago. I think that this had a limited timeframe, a very clearly defined mission which we are in the process of fulfilling.” In other words, if it is a Republican initiating action, the Congress (or at least the DNC) needs to control it, but if a Democrat initiates action or the action is at the bidding of the UN, it’s all good in the hood! In the same article, SecDef Gates gets all convoluted in trying to explain the rationale behind the operation, saying that it wasn’t in our interests, but was in our interests. This isn’t only the gang that can’t shoot straight, they’re the gang that can’t even get their stories straight…and it gets even better. Team Obama now claims that he didn’t go to Congress before attacking because the situation was too urgent. If it was so urgent, why did he wait over 2 weeks before making the call? Did it interfere with his tee times?

The Eric Holder Injustice Department has now attacked a school district near Chicago by filing a discrimination lawsuit against them, with absolutely no Constitutional justification. The school district did not grant vacation time to their only math lab teacher for three weeks during the school year because she was not allowed 19 days of vacation time according to the union contract. Since she was demanding the vacation for a muslim pilgrimage to Mecca, the Obama Administration had to get involved.

As if we didn’t expect this one. Eric Holder’s Injustice Department has cleared itself of any wrongdoing in the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case. The day after the GOP takes control of the whole Congress and the White House, the real investigation will be able to take place.

Hmmmmm. What does Gaffes Biden have to say now? He warned that he would lead a move to impeach W if he attacked Iran without getting Congressional approval first. Well, Obama attacked Libya without asking Congress for approval. We are waiting for your call to impeach, Mr. Vice President. (Yeah, I know…impeaching Obama would lead to Gaffes becoming President. All I can say is that he can’t be any worse.)

President Obama has now stated that he will keep his Nobel Peace Prize. Why shouldn’t he? He is still fulfilling every reason that it was given to him in the first place. He’s an anti-American socialist muslim who is not George W. Bush.

I appears that Congress is noticing how The Chosen One is in love with oil production, as long as it is not American.

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 and I’ll consider ‘em. Yes, I will give you newshounds credit.

“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel or envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.” –Winston Spencer Churchilll

The Constitution of the United States


  1. Buck's Book Vol I.

    1. Why is it, "The American" thing to be the world's moral police?

    2. In re #1, why do we get involved when our own security is not involved?

    3. In re #2, why do we go half way around the world to maintain peace when we can't maintain our own border???

    4. I stand corrected. I alwayscalled it, "The Congressional."

    5. If the USA got rid of all government grants not pertaning to national security, got rid of all foreign aid not going to a proven and staunch ally and got rid of all entitlements and put that money towards the debt about how far would that go?

    6. The MSM proves every day their total commitment to the left by their lack of reporting on locking the reporter in a closet or mention of California's severe budget cuts. But bet your ass they will report on the "Patriotic" SEIU strikes in Wisconson..

    7. Boehner still hasn't got it. Maybe he should be replaced in '12. Maybe that "shot across the bow" should be a tad to the left and a tad below the waterline. If he was fired that would surely be the 2x4 that gets the mules' (or elephants') attention.

    8. Ever notice when the Dems appoint a female to national security posts AMERICANS die? Does Janet Reno come to mind? And how many Americans have been killed on our border no lately? Don't forget Jamie Gorelik and her "firewall" which eased the way for 9/11...

    9. Next producing a picture i.d. driver's license when stopped is Racist also...

    10. I'm afraid the GOP doesn't have the stones to pursue the ATF gun scandal. The GOP heirarchy is not going to rock the DC boat. McCain proved that in '08.
    As long as the GOP refuses to point out the obvious they will remain in the also ran category.
    They have not yet realized the old adage, "The squeaking wheel gets the grease" applies to politics also.

  2. Buck's Book Vol. II

    11. More on Gorelick? She's like a case of herpes. Just won't go away. Think I'd prefer the herpes.

    12. Typical Hillary. That statement is kinda like when Little Johnny is caught in some form of mischief and his defense was, "Well everybody else was doing it."

    13. Hillary Clinton, SecDef Gates, Pelosi et al ad infinitum their statements to the public should be seen as not only an insult to our intelligence but also an indicator of their own lack thereof that they would believe Americans would not see through them. What utter arrrogant contempt!

    14. But would Holder & DOJ get involved if the math teacher was denied a vacation to attend a Christain Retreat?

    15. You must remember when the government is allowed to inspect its own asshole will report finding it a, "Pleasant shade of brown emitting an exhotic essence."

    16. Biden replacing Zero. That would be about like Willie Lumplump replacing Freddie the Freeloader (Red Skelton characters, for you younguns).

    17. Heck, even Jim Thorpe returned his Olympic medals even though his infractions w would be nonexistant by today's standards. Funny. So many voted for Zero because they felt having a black president was the right thing to do. Bkut Zero every day does something else to give the racists ammunition against any future REAL black candidate. Sad/ But true.

    18. Yep. Zero has GIVEN Brazil gadzillions for oil production. Bet we don't get a single drop below oil cartel prices. Just like we are fighting KaDaffy on behalf of all the muslim potentates because they fear the revolution will spill over into their baliwick. All on OUR dime. Yet, just as Kuwait and Iraq we still are paying inflated market prices...

  3. I think Joe Gaffes Biden should have his words about W and Iran shown on tv. The left would be silent while the rest of America would see what utter fools they are.


  4. I'm still waiting for Boehner and Company to defund Obamacare, as they promised during the elections.

    What is it about the last election they don't understand?

    If the GOP is going to revert to their old SOP, then I'll be reverting to mine and voting third-party again next year.

  5. My my that's a meaty claw! I don't think I'll ever forget the Desmond Doss story, it should be required reading for everyone. The Obama Admin. has indisputable proof that guns from American gun stores are being smuggled across the border, unfortunately it's ther own people doing the smuggling. Gorelick has a reputation to uphold, everything he touches, he destroys. The messiah doesn't need the apporval of Congress! besides, in 2 weeks it will be over and we'll be out of there. Gaffes Biden can't be any worse? You're ecomparing a spit drooling moron, truly the twit of the decade with the president? I guess you have a point there!
    Well that was an interesting meal, I'm stuffed, but still hungry.
    Thanks for the gub Mudbug!

  6. Craw, I get a lump in my throat when I read about men like Desmond Doss. He truly was one of America's finest.

    Mex-Gungate DOES NOT need to go away. This is a scandal that is worse in its implications than Watergate ever was. Perhaps this will put many of this administration in prison where they belong. I would never have believed that the federal government would force sales of weapons to known Mexican Drug cartels. I hope the family of the slain border agent is suing the feds for his wrongful death.

  7. Buck,
    1-3) Americans traditionally try to oppose evil (and Gaddhafi is no-shit evil) and protect those oppressed by evil. It is just the "right" thing to do. Is it always what we really SHOULD be doing? No. Do we always make the correct choices on who to support? No. We just want to do the right thing. These days, however, it ain't practical to do so everywhere. We need to pick and choose where we stick our noses...and our own border SHOULD be first.
    4) tsk, tsk
    5) Hellllooooooo surplus!
    6) and in Ohio, and in Corruptionois, and in...
    7) All RINOs need to be UNelected in the 2012 primaries.
    8) Any time a Democrat is appointed/elected to a national security position, Americans die as a result.
    9) BINGO!
    10) The RINO wheel gets UNEMPLOYED!

  8. Buck, Volume II
    11) Well...liberalism IS a progressive disease!
    12) "We will bow to the UN, but F those 'pubs in Congress!"
    13) Their own statements should be used against them in every campaign commercial.
    14) Of course not....especially if it was a white, male, heterosexual, conservative teacher.
    15) Kinda like Goebbels and Himler investigating Nazi atrocities?
    16) Thing 2 replacing Thing 1?
    17) There won't be a black Democrat elected President for another 60 years after this debacle.
    18) More on this in my weekend edition!

  9. Eric,
    if we made all GOP campaign commercials from Dim-ocrat quotes over the past 2 years, the GOP would landslide win in 2012.

  10. Brian,
    they are proving themselves to be stooooopid politicians again, not conservatives who may have heard the anger of 2010.
    So who will the Constitution Party put up for OUR vote?

  11. Jim,
    if you believe that we'll be out of there in 2 weeks, I've got some Obama campaign promises to sell ya.

  12. Ghost,
    it looks like part of the program started under W, but went crazy under O. I'm not sure when the gun smuggling part started. This is gonna get nasty over the next few weeks.

    Hey! Maybe THAT is why Obama hit Libya! BillyJeff hit Iraq every time he had a scandal to get off of the front page!

  13. Crawfish,
    Did you delete my comment? I wrote a book about 5AM this morning.

    Kudos on the wrap-up and comments.

  14. A really fine heap.Sorry all,no book this week. We are packing up the motorpalace to head back to Michiruit.Wife's already practicing bitching about being cold!!Leave out in the AM,will catch back up with y'all when we get home late next week. C ya.

  15. Hardnox,
    nope. It never showed up for moderation.

  16. Clyde,
    are ya sure ya wanna go back?

  17. Crap...must have been the censors ha,ha.

  18. Did you set off the FLASHING RED LIGHTS again? I thought they were disabled, since Buck and Clyde have no problems posting.

  19. Evidently that's what happened, but I think Buck and Clyde have may have overloaded the system. I'll be on the look out for your next post.

  20. Yeah, Craw, there it is.

    GOP = PSP (Perpetually Stupid Party).

    The Constitution Party wasn't on the ballot out here in Commiefornia last time, so I went with Barr. Hopefully they'll be on the ballot next year.

    Man... I'd sure love to see the GOP field a candidate I could actually get excited about. The last time that happened for me was Reagan's re-election.

  21. Brian nailed it. The GOP is developing their traditional "lackaballs syndrome."

    I am HOPING that LtCol West comes out swinging but I ain't holding my breath. There are a few good conservatives out there but the GOP elites will squelch them.

  22. Hardnox,
    feel free to comment over at
    Also feel free to nuke the troll!

  23. Brian,
    Reagan's re-election was my first vote. Since then, every Presidential vote was based on the GOP candidate being better, even if not by much, than the Dim....until the SCDS arose!

  24. Gunny,
    They don't really have any desire to win. They just want to be liked by the establishment media.

  25. EXCELLANT post as usal Craw--ever notice that when Obummer is speaking the press follow adoringly and when real common sense TEA party folk speak we are the shunned?


I welcome your comments, but beware that I do review them before allowing them to be seen. While I allow opposing points of view, I discard stoooopidity and trollish comments.
