Things are really getting out of control. This column was late because my home internet (along with the phone and cable tv) was down for a couple of days. Plus, I’ve increased my frequency to twice per week, and I STILL threw out stories about:
1) Taxachusetts putting some state programs up for public investment and management so they will be run more efficiently.
2) George Soros funding groups in many states trying to get judges appointed by committees of trial lawyers instead of being elected, since the trial lawyers are a major part of the Democratic Party.
3) The California high speed rail project being rerouted through farmland so that some birds might not be disturbed.
4) His Majesty violating federal election laws by filming campaign fundraising ads in the Oval Office. (more federal lawbreaking is included)
5) The EPA using falsified science (noted in a previous column) to warn of dire consequences of sea levels rising because of Glo-Bull Warming.
6) Clinton sold the Lincoln Bedroom for campaign cash, but Obama is raffling off dinners with himself, with Gaffes Biden, and experiences with the WH chef. Can you imagine Reagan doing that?
7) The idiots in charge of Maryland making “environmental literacy” (aka Human Origin Global Warming And Similar Horrors…HOGWASH) a requirement for high school graduation.
8) Hillary! stating that the State Department was “instrumental in sealing the deal” for Lady Gaga to have a queer pride event in Rome.
A) We’ll start off with a story that illustrates something about global politics that drives The Crawfish nuts. Since 1949, the Republic of China (Taiwan) has been a distinct and separate entity from the People’s Republic of China, although neither side will officially admit to such. The PRC considers Taiwan to be a “rogue province”, while the government of Taiwan considers itself to be the legitimate government of all China. Any government that officially recognizes one must deny the existence of the other. The USA officially recognized the PRC under Richard Nixon, thereby throwing Taiwan under the bus. Since then, the USA has listed Taiwan’s status as “undetermined”, not acknowledging the PRC’s claim nor the ROC’s. The USA has kept strong commercial ties to Taiwan and has also supplied military equipment, but every military sale to Taiwan has resulted in deterioration of our relations with the PRC. The ROC wishes to buy 66 more F-16 fighter jets from Lockheed Martin Aeronautics, and has for a few years. The Bush Administration refused the sale so as to not provoke the PRC, and the Obama Administration has followed suit. Senator John Cornyn is pushing the issue, and will refuse to allow the confirmation of Obama’s Deputy SecState until the sale is allowed to go through. The times has come for the USA (and others) to step forward and officially recognize BOTH governments, publicly state the reality that the two are separate entities, and that their claims to the contrary are not based in any kind of reality and are actually quite childish.
B) The media is hounding Michelle Bachmann for confusing the birthplace of John Wayne with that of John Wayne Gacy, but they seem to be awfully silent about THIS monumental screw-up by The Chosen One. I know that if President Crawfish would ever have the distinct honor of presenting that award, I would remember whether I presented it to a living person or to their family...and I wouldn’t need a teleprompter to remind me!
C) The process of extracting natural gas from rock deposits known as “fracking” has come under fire from many groups that are opposed to American energy development, especially the over regulatory zealots who have taken over the EPA in the past two decades. In this article, the liberal myths of fracking are answered. The Crawfish’s hometown of Fort Worth has seen an abundance of fracking wells put into operation in the past few years. Our country is better off because of it.
D) This explains some of what my family goes through daily with two dachshund puppies.
E) CNN’s Candi Crowley interviewed Red Nanny P-Lousy, and allowed Nanny to spew out lie after lie about the deficit reduction talks. Nanny is DEMANDING a seat at the table (even though she shut the GOP out of all discussion of Obamacare) and DEMANDING that “balance” be part of the equation. “Balance” is the new Democrat talking point meaning tax increases, which must be implemented to prevent the deficit reduction being all “on the backs of the middle class.” The only people who would be negatively impacted by the GOP plans would be the leeches of society who live their lives sucking off the government teat and producing zero work (aka core Democrat voters) and government workers at agencies that have exceeded their Constitutional bounds. Nancy’s delusions also include her being “comfortable” that the Democrats will regain the House in 2012. Life’s grand when you live in a dream instead of reality.
F) Here’s Senator McConnell’s speech on the Senate floor just before going to meet with President Obama on the subject of the deficit reduction talks. He laid it out clear and concise. Now let’s see if the GOP can stick to their guns and stand with the American people, or if they will allow themselves to be rolled by the biggest flim-flam artist in history.
G) The Obama Administration is (surprise, surprise) violating federal whistleblower laws by firing the ATF agent who publicized the “Operation Gunrunner” and “Operation Fast & Furious” scandals, despite warnings from Representative Issa. This Administration makes the Clinton Administration look positively honest and law-abiding!
H) Does the UN have any legitimacy anymore? Well, when IRAN of all places hosts the “International Conference on the Global Fight Against Terrorism”, turns it into a United States and Israel bash-fest, champions the conspiracy theory that 9-11 was an inside job to support Zionism, includes Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, who is wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for alleged war crimes in Darfur, and the whole thing is attended by Ban Ki-Moon and sponsored by the UN, you can make the case that the UN is now officially supporting Islamic terrorism and the restoration of the ideal of the worldwide Caliphate. It is beyond time for the US to kick that sorry bunch out of Noo Yawk, stop paying dues, and declare that no resolutions from that body will be recognized as legitimate.
I) Oh just wonderful. The Obama Administration’s people have recently met and negotiated with a man who planned the Beirut Marine Barracks bombing of 1983 and the bombing of a Jewish community center in Argentina in 1994 and is on Interpol’s most wanted list. Why are we negotiating with Iran regarding Afghanistan’s security? Why are we doing anything other than killing that terrorist?
J) Then again, we have a Republican Governor, who many have mentioned as a possible candidate for President or Vice President, who has spoken at a mosque with “extremist” (meaning that they believe and preach what the 2nd half of the Koran commands) views and befriended their imam, who admitted to being a member of Hamas. This Governor has now nominated a muslim, who has defended that imam and many muslims involved in the 9/11 case and aftermath both as an attorney and as a private citizen, to the Noo Joisey Superior Court. Chris Christie, your chances of being elected on a national stage have just gone down the toilet.
K) Somehow, methinks Dan Calabrese of North Star National doesn’t really enjoy the endless campaign season.
L) Is Al Gore the new Jim Bakker or Jimmy Swaggart? It looks like much of the world has caught on to his bovine excrement.
M) Whoulda thunkit? A study from the Phoenix Center shows how eliminating some of the over-regulations in our government could spur tremendous economic growth. “On average, eliminating the job of a single regulator grows the American economy by $6.2 million and nearly 100 private sector jobs annually.” Of course, that is NOT what the statists of the Democratic Socialist Fascist Party wants you to hear.
N) Schadenfreud at its best is now being seen in Than Franthithco, People’s Republic of Kookifornia. The state is replacing the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, and they are saving over $400,000,000.00 by, get this, avoiding union construction costs and having the pieces of the bridge made in China and shipped over! There are serious concerns about the steel quality, as Chinese steel has a reputation of being inferior to American steel, but if they didn’t have to use union labor to build it, they could have saved the same amount and had American steel. Liberals screwing over their union buddies in the most left-wing city in America. Gotta love it!
O) Kookifornia gets another paragraph in my bi-weekly wrap-up, as a principal at a Sacramento-area high school delivered his graduation speech in English and Spanish. He said it was to make the Spanish-speaking relatives “feel comfortable.” He said, “To me we live in America and that’s the beauty of America: that we all bring our backgrounds our cultures our languages and that’s what makes us who we are.” Wrong answer, libtard. Read what Teddy Roosevelt had to say on the matter: “There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room but for one language here and that is the English language, for we intend to see that the crucible turns our people out as Americans, of American nationality; we have room for but one soul loyalty, and that is loyalty to the American people.” That also goes for the multitude that packed the Rose Bowl for the Gold Cup final and turned it into a home game for the Mexicans against the USA.
P) Didn’t I have a story kinda relating to this last week? Wait…they have a WHAT CHAMPIONSHIP?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
Q) So how’s that model for Obamacare doing these days? It seems that patient groups are mad at Britain’s National Health Service because the NHS is denying proper care to cancer patients because the treatments are expensive. So, Representative Grayson, the Obamacare answer to cancer patients is “Die sooner”????
R) The “Chicago Way” hasn’t been looking too good recently. The corruption that the Second City is so famous for has actually been taken seriously by some courts and the court of public opinion. This week, a jury finally convicted former Governor Blagojevich on 17 of 20 counts, including all 11 counts of trying to sell the Senate seat vacated by Barack Obama when he became the occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania, and 3 counts each of shaking down a children’s hospital and a racetrack executive, while deadlocking on 1 of 2 counts of shaking down a construction executive (other count was the single acquittal) and 1 count of shaking down Rahm “I lived in Chicago even though I rented my house out while living in DC” Emanuel. Who does he think he is…Jesse Jackson?
S) I can imagine Bill Clinton saying that meeting with sex workers is “people-to-people diplomacy at its best”, but the statement actually came from Hillary! as she praised the international efforts of the State Department in furthering the cause of queers, dykes, tri-sexuals (they’ll try ANYTHING), and surgical freaks in places like Uganda, Malawi, Turkey, China, and the Soviet Uni…er, Russia. Why does OUR government have to support the “rights” of those perverts around the world? We shouldn’t even be supporting those people here! They made their choices to go outside of acceptable societal norms and against the words of the holy books of all major religions. They deserve whatever treatment they get.
T) Bill Clinton’s former mouthpiece (wait…maybe that isn’t the proper term for a non-Lewinsky) tried to slam Michelle Bachmann for her supposedly-incorrect statements regarding the Founding Fathers. Since Georgie Steffi is a liberal, his knowledge of the Founding Fathers is as faulty as the rest of the Democrats’ knowledge of the Fathers and the Constitution. Game, set, match to Bachmann and Levin.
U) Here’s a new one…a union that opposes Barack Obama and is warning America about Obama’s actions. The union happens to be the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents union, and they are very peeved at the Obama Administrations surrender to illegals.
V) This goes along with the two-pronged offensive by the Democrats to give amnesty to all illegals. First, the Senate Dims are going to push the DREAM Amnesty Act yet again. Secondly, the leader of ICE has published a memo with 19 points titled “Exercising Prosecutorial Discretion Consistent with the Civil Immigration Enforcement Priorities of the Agency for the Apprehension, Detention, and Removal of Aliens.” In other words, there are 19 reasons to let illegals go free instead of putting them before immigration judges who might follow the law and deport their arses.
W) So how much did the First Grifter’s tour of Afreaka with her mother, kids, and brother’s kids cost the American taxpayers? Well, the flights to and from cost $430,000 alone. An embassy spokesperson even said that the trip was a “personal pilgrimage” for the First Grifter, and since she has exactly ZERO official duties (according to that old thing written by a bunch of whiteys, some of whom owned slaves), that means every single penny of expenses should be paid from her big, fat (no, not her backside) bank account.
X) We now know what side Politico.com is taking in the upcoming elections. They are running a story discussing how thin the resume is for Michelle Bachmann in her run for the White House. Her resume is quite thick compared to that of Barack “I voted ‘Present’ over 150 times because I can’t make simple decisions without a teleprompter” Obama in 2008.
Y) Some of y’all might remember the Reebok Terry Tate series of commercials. Well, Boost Mobile has apparently come up with something better. Check out the Boost Mobile BSDC. Since BS is part of the name, you can infer that there might be some bleeping going on.
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.
