By the time you read this, DC will have been hit by an earthquake, a hurricane, and the return of Dear Leader. Sometimes I feel sorry for that city.
A) The Obamas got blasted for taking two aircraft to their vacation, necessitating two motorcades and tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars to be used up. Well, the message evidently was not received. His Majesty decided to return to DC on Friday evening, presumably to start dealing with the hurricane, the earthquake aftermath, Libya, his “jobs plan”, and…oh forget that stuff. He’s planning the next campaign tour. Meanwhile, Michelle Antoinette and the junior freeloaders won’t return until Saturday afternoon, necessitating yet another flight and motorcade (hey, it’s only money from those eeevilll rich taxpayers). This extra trip will also put all involved into more danger as Hurricane Irene bears down on DC in the same time period.
B) If I’m ever heading to Indiana, will someone please remind me to stop by Goshen College and defecate at the main entrance. If you dislike our nation that much, get the Hell out!
C) If you don’t think that the government is completely out of control, just read this article. Yes, our government is raiding guitar factories because some of the woods used might come from Madagascar. WHO CARES?!?! The envirowackos and their Democrat allies are going hog-friggin-wild. It is beyond time for adults to return to DC and shred 75% of the laws and regulations currently in place. Update: Gibson Guitars has affidavits from officials in Madagascar and the US showing that they are fully in compliance with Madagascar laws, and therefore US laws, but the Obama Administration doesn’t care.
D) The Crawfish is sure that the liberal media in the US and Europe will blame Israel for their airstrikes against muslim terrorists in Gaza following yet another round of rocket attacks by said muslim terrorists. Israel needs to bulldoze the entirety of Gaza, ship all the muslims to Jordan, and rebuild that part of Israel for Israelis.
E) The Democrats have used billionaire Warren Buffett to push for higher taxes on the rich, with Buffett saying that the rich can afford it and would gladly give up some of their dough. In reality, Warren Buffett has most of his money in tax shelters and his company is in a long-running dispute with the IRS over their tax bills. Yes, the billionaire has failed to pay tens of millions of dollars in business taxes. Just another hypocritical Democrat!
F) It looks like the Obama Jobs Plan is going to include doubling down on what caused the 2008 housing crash. Yes, he wants to give mortgage loans to people who have poor credit and can’t afford a house. To do so won’t involve another propping up of Freddie and Fannie. Nooooooo. This time the leftists are just going to have the government take them over outright! Talk about stuck on stooooopid!
G) The Democrats keep saying that big government creates private sector jobs, but the GOP has real numbers and reality on their side. We just need to hammer the numbers home.
H) Once again, Texas is taking the lead. This time, my state is going to start deporting prison inmates who are citizens of other countries. Of course, this whole plan relies on the feds to uphold their pledge to actually deport the criminals instead of releasing them on parole within the state. We need to also bill the other nations for the court, incarceration, and transportation costs and payments to the victims or families of victims.
I) This story got sent to me by about five readers, but Garnet92 was first, so he gets the hat tip. Singer, writer, politician, and famous Jewish cowboy Kinky Friedman, who ran against Rick Perry for Governor, has come out in support of Perry. Here’s a quote that could ONLY come from Kinky: “These days, of course, I would support Charlie Sheen over Obama. Obama has done for the economy what pantyhose did for foreplay.” Gotta love it!
J) Gen Y TV covered this event, but there appeared to be a complete lack of coverage by the alphabet networks. I wonder why that may be. Could it be that this video proves conclusively that the Tea Party is anything but an all-white racist kook organization? (Hat tip to Claw reader “Saltwater”)
K) Noo Yawk’s Mayor has absolutely no problem with the muslims building a conquest mosque near the World Trade Center site, but he has helped prevent a Greek Orthodox church that was damaged in the 9-11 attacks. He is also banning clergy from the 10th anniversary commemoration. Why do liberal Jews hate Christianity and support Islam?
L) We have finally found out why Bill Clinton looks so sickly and anorexic.
M) I’m guessing that the Marine Corps is not allowing beans or potato salad to be served to the Marines serving in Afghanistan.
N) Grab a Kleenex before opening this link. If it doesn’t bring a tear to your eye, you must be an anti-American liberal. If only our politicians would have that much dedication to those who wear our uniforms.
O) While the Democrats are trying to slash defense spending, the Pentagon has released a new report showing that the Chinese are rapidly building up and modernizing their forces with the goal of preventing us from interfering with their eventual takeover of Taiwan and future dominance of the western Pacific. Their first stealthy strike fighter is in the test flight stage. They now have an aircraft carrier to form their naval aviation doctrine and training with as they build up their own carrier force. Their one-child policy of the past two decades has given them a very male-heavy population, and the only way to even that out is through a nice, big, bloody war.
P) The First Grifter really does love her taxpayer-paid vacations. While real Americans are struggling, she spends $10,000,000.00+ of OUR money to live it up wherever and whenever she wants.
Q) This story is not kid-friendly. In fact, it needs to be read in a plain computer wrapped in a brown paper bag.
R) This video clip from the 2008 campaign needs to be a part of every other ad run by the GOP candidate in 2012. He just called himself “irresponsible” and “unpatriotic”!
S) The Washington Post is trying to go after Rick Perry by pointing out that 234 executions have taken place in Texas during his Governorship. The Crawfish is also angry at that number. It should be MUCH higher!
T) Representative Elijah Cummings (Jassack-MD) says that most blacks “feel this President has been treated unfairly” and he does have a valid point. It has been completely unfair of the media to give Barack Obama a complete pass on his lack of experience, his associations with radical marxists and racists, his assaults on the Constitution, his associations with known and unrepentant terrorists, his actual religion, etc.
U) Victor Davis Hanson provides yet another lesson in vacuous liberal logic. Why do the same thing over and over when it has proven to never work? Because neither the malady nor the medicine have killed the patient yet.
V) Pakistani-born Canadian activist Tarek Fatah recently gave a speech for livecity in which he again pointed out the dangers of Islamism. Here is the video of that speech. It is a bit long, but you’ll be glad you stayed with it. If you’re wondering about him being in a wheelchair, no he wasn’t attacked by muslims for his activism. This year he was diagnosed with a massive tumor on his spine.
W) Remember what I said about Ron Paul after the Iowa debate? This story backs up my assertion. ‘Nuff said.
X) This is rich. Eric Holder’s Injustice Department has been refusing to turn over papers and evidence regarding their illegal Fast & Furious operation to Congressional committees doing investigations. Now the Affirmative Action Attorney General is demanding papers from Congress so that he can doctor them for an “independent” investigation by his Inspector General department. If the IG wants the info, he/she can request it directly so that Holder doesn’t get any chance to mess with it. Just like Watergate, the cover-up is getting worse than the original crimes, even though in this case the original crimes have lead directly to multiple deaths including that of an American law enforcement officer.
Y) Thank you Michelle (***sigh***) Malkin for honoring and remembering Joey Vento better than I ever could. I hope Joey’s legacy becomes an America where immigrants once again assimilate to OUR culture and OUR language instead of demanding that we assimilate to their cultures and languages.
Z) Borrowing a line from Larry the Cable Guy, I don’t care who you are. THIS is funny! I can’t believe she didn’t think of that possibility.
If y’all come across any weird/stoooopid/strange news stories that might be fodder for The Weekly Claw or The Weekend Claw, you can post them on my writer page on Facebook or e-mail them to the address listed on that page. Yes, I will give you newshounds credit if I use your input.
