Wow, what a week we’ve had. I ended up throwing out over 20 stories that I had lined up for this column. Once we get into June, and I have some more time, I’ll consider starting my weekend columns up again.
A) Despite the SCOTUS “Citizens United” case, the Constitution, and the actions of Congress, Barack Obama is set to force business executives to disclose their campaign contributions and such, so that he can guide all federal contracts away from those who support the GOP. These rules specifically do not include unions and other leftist groups. He knows that even if he ends up losing in court, it will take a few election cycles for that ruling to be finalized.
B) Many of you have heard Glenn Beck go off on how everything the Administration and the Democratic Party does is part of the Cloward-Piven strategy, but you don’t really understand what that strategy is. Here is a primer on Cloward-Piven.
C) The White House is whining that the GOP won’t raise the debt limit without some serious spending cuts being part of the package. But who was it who said “I place economy among the first and most important government virtues and public debt as the greatest of the dangers to be feared” back in 2006 when he was voting against raising the debt limit? Wasn’t that Harry Reid?
D) Since The Chosen One is trying to revive the DREAM (Amnesty) Act again, Lady Liberty decided that moving to and sponging off of Mexico might be the thing to do. She wrote a letter to King Barack to request some assistance. Turnabout’s fair play, right?
E) The Chosen One was on the campaign trail in Texas this week, and he mocked Republicans for being in favor of having secure borders. He was wrong on multiple counts, with some of them being outright lies. Obviously, TOTUS wasn’t properly fact-checked. He claimed that the big technology firms were all started by immigrants, which is not true, and even if it was those would have been LEGAL immigrants, which blows his whole amnesty argument out of the window. He claimed that the border fence project is almost complete, which is debunked by Senator DeMint and by the folks at CNSNews, since only about 40 miles of double fencing has been erected. He also said that Republicans wanted a moat, with alligators. Nope, we want double fences backed up by guard towers with Marine-trained sharpshooters and LOTS OF AMMO!
F) Here’s more fine leadership on immigration from Mr. “I Vote Present”.
G) What do you do with a racist rapper who praises cop killers, advocates more cop killing, called for George W. Bush to be burned, and who grew up attending Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity United Church of Black Liberation Theology? You invite him to read poetry at the White House, of course!
H) Princess Beatrice, daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, is auctioning off the hat she wore at the royal wedding. Proceeds go to some UN organizations that probably have 95% admin costs. My question is: who in their right mind would want to wear THAT? It looks like a latte-colored toilet seat with a bow of TP!
I) John McLame is an idiot. I know…not really a headline. Despite what the CIA admits, he is saying that harsh interrogations did not help in the hunt for OBL. He also says that waterboarding violates the Geneva Conventions. Sorry, but it does NOT violate the Geneva Conventions because the folks we are fighting against do NOT meet the requirements of being legal combatants and/or prisoners of war specified in Part 1, Article 4. As illegal combatants, they may be treated however we choose, including torture and/or summary execution.
J) Barack Obama and Eric Holder agree with McLame, which is not surprising since they hate our military and love our enemies. Some of those CIA personnel who got us the info on OBL are now being investigated and could be sent to prison by The Chosen One and the Affirmative Action AG. Now if any of them are black, they might avoid prosecution.
K) The sister of a 9/11 victim asked Obama to end the investigations of the CIA heroes, but he just turned his back and walked away like the stuck-up, anti-American, narcissistic jerk that he is.
L) Todd Beamer’s father called it right. Obama has turned the OBL execution into a story all about Obama. James Lewis takes it a step farther. He shows how the raid was possibly designed to help a number of people who don’t have America’s best interests at heart, with Barack Obama being at the top of the list.
M) A German judge has filed a criminal complaint against Chancellor Merkel. Her crime? She publicly approves of OBL’s execution. One of OBL’s sons says that he might sue the USA for killing good ol’ Dad. Gotta love judicial systems made up of academics and idiot liberals.
N) Here’s your liberal civility update for the week. Unfortunately, since the Secret Service is under the direction of Tax Cheat Timmy, nothing will come of this.
O) I didn’t know that Osama bin Laden was a Democrat. The strategies in his writings are straight from the DNC/Obama playbook. Maybe that is why Barack Obama is ramping up his muslim outreach program again.
P) What happens when a city is run for over 60 years by liberals, unions, and minorities? You get Detroit, where 47% of the population is illiterate. The teachers unions have some ‘splainin’ ta do, since most of the illiterate have HS diplomas or GEDs.
Q) To help make Mexico a better country, the Mexican government could take control of their own nation, end the rampant corruption, and use their own resources including a ready and willing workforce…or they could demand that the USA opens the borders and legalizes drugs. FIX YOUR OWN DAMNED COUNTRY!
R) How’s this for a retirement package for a state employee? Notice that he already has a $790,000.00 salary already, so he doesn’t need any big package. He should have invested on his own!
S) Here’s some more from the unions of Caul-ee-for-nee-uh. The teacher unions are spending millions of tax dollars (tax dollars pay the salaries, which pay the dues) to get the legislature to raise taxes in order to pay the teachers even more. Meanwhile, left wing moonbat Governor Jerry Browne wants the PEOPLE to decide on any tax increases. Of course, the teachers unions might consider THIS to be an epic victory. Then there’s the lifeguards who are making over $200,000.00 per year, and that is NOT earned by starring in a television series.
T) It ain’t just in Callie. The unions in Noo Yawk force antiquated rules to apply to all construction projects, which means there are a bunch of guys who do about 5 minutes of work per day, but make over $100,000.00 per year “working” at the Ground Zero construction site. Andrew Klavan shows what public sector unions are all about, in spite of what the left tries to say.
U) Another “establishment” Republican has joined the race for the White House. Just what we need, another imitation conservative with more baggage than a planeload of Hollyweird divas. Sorry, Eye of Newt, but when you sat on that couch with Nancy Pelosi and spoke of Glo-Bull Warming, you lost ALL of your conservative creds. The 2012 GOP primaries need to be a RINO-free zone.
V) Professors at state universities don’t have liberal agendas, do they?
W) Here’s a website to track the activities and people associated with leftist organizations that are killing our nation. Thanks to Poll Katz member REC48.
X) I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried.
Y) As bad as this story on Project Gunrunner is, pay attention to what the Obama-Holder ATF did to one of their own agents! He went undercover to investigate the Hells Angels, was promised protection, and then had the protection removed , which almost got him and his family killed. In January of 2013, Obama will have to issue pardons to most of the people in his Administration.
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 fact that we are here today to debate raising America ’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America ’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.” - Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL), March 20, 2006
