9-7-2011 The Weekly Claw

North Texas has gone from record highs to approaching record lows in less than a week. The cooler temperatures are most welcome, but the winds and continuing dry conditions haven’t been.

Before we get started, I am working on a Special Edition of The Claw. I have been invited to interview (via e-mail) Senatorial candidate and former Mayor of Dallas Tom Leppert. I invite my readers to tell me what questions they’d like me to ask him.  Post them as comments or send them to me in an e-mail if you have one of my addresses.

A) This guy had one heckuva first experience riding in a plane.

B) Is government in America out of control? Do we really have the right to live as we wish? Check out this story and then answer those questions.

C) Jimmy Hoffa, who has never actually worked a day in his life, has some tough words for those who do not believe in Big Union. Hoffa has gotten all of his money and power by extorting dues from workers who have no choice but to join a union, something The Crawfish knows all about. So does he care about “workers”? Nope. He’s just in it for his own power. He’s out there declaring war on Republicans, and prepping his thugs for fighting, saying union thugs like a good fight and they need to “take these sons of bitches out!” This is, of course, the new “civility” from the Democratic Party. When asked about his remarks, Debbie the Ditz refused to answer and changed the subject to non-existent coarse language at Tea Party rallies. President Obama said he was proud of Hoffa, while his Propaganda Minister avoided the subject completely.

D) So why would Jimmy Hoffa be so far into the hip pocket of Barack Obama? Maybe because Obama has vowed to end the long-running federal oversight of the Teamsters and their rampant corruption. If the feds are removed from the Teamsters headquarters, the corruption levels will reach Jimmy Hoffa Senior standards within a month.

E) Michelle (***sigh***) Malkin gives us the Top Ten union thug moments of the past year, and Hoffa’s remarks made the list.

F) As long as we’re on the subject of union stupidity, the US Postal Service is on the verge of a complete shutdown because they can’t meet their costs. Labor costs eat up 80% of the USPS budget, compared to 53% at UPS (which hires TEAMSTER drivers only), and 32% at FedEx (NON-union). USPS employees have benefits packages among the absolute best in the federal government (not including Congress, POTUS, of VPOTUS). One of the possible solutions is to cut 20% of the bloated work force. The hitch in that plan is that the union has a clause in the latest labor contract forbidding ALL lay-offs, and they are opposing any breech in that contract. When the union bosses face a choice between 20% losing their jobs and 100% losing their jobs, they choose 100%, believing that Barack Obama and the Democrats will come to their rescue with yet more money from the great-grandchildren of our taxpayers.

G) Obama’s Labor Day speech was seen as a possible preview to his Thursday jobs speech. So how did the markets react to his speech. I wouldn’t exactly call that a success.

H) I saw this post somewhere on Facebook and had to steal it: Tea Party Protesters are R.A.C.I.S.T. - Real Americans Challenging Intrusive Socialistic Tactics.

I)It is almost funny and yet so sad to see how the Democrats live in some fantasy world devoid of reality. Debbie the Ditz is now saying that the so-called “stimulus” actually WORKED! It created 3.6 million jobs! It turned the economy around! Really? Somebody get that chick a drug test. Here’s a look at jobs lost in recessions over the past 40 years and jobs gained in the 24 months following them. Does that look like success, Debbie?

J) Her fellow space cadet, Maxine Waters, is calling for another trillion dollar jobs program. Heck, the last one worked so well that we might as well spend TEN trillion so we can make sure EVERYBODY has a job! That would work, right? So what if we’d never be able to pay for it even if we taxed every wage earner in America at 100%. Communism has NEVER worked and never will.

K) I saw this story on Neal Boortz’s site and knew it was right for my readers.

L) The Noo Yawk Slimes has officially endorsed Sharia Law in America, and even went so far as to say it is just like Jewish Law. When in the past 2000 years did Jewish Law include commandments that all non-believers must be converted, enslaved, or killed? What part of Jewish Law says that women are property and are to be treated as such? What part of Jewish Law commands that the world be conquered and entirely subjected to Islam?

M) We have now found out why Barack Obama defied Congress and continued the war in Libya despite the War Powers Act. It is all according to the master plan.

N) Another former camper at Club Gitmo has been found on the battlefields of Afghanistan. Why have we let any of these illegal combatants go free? They do not qualify for POW status according to the Geneva Conventions, and illegal combatants normally fall under the category of having no rights, including that of life. When we are done extracting information from them (by whatever means necessary), we should turn them into shark food.

O) Nearly 40% of Europeans suffer from mental illness. We in America call it socialistic liberalitis or societus moochus.

P) Can we get this law here in America? I know a bunch of folks who would like to see it the other way around.

Q) I don’t know how Eric Holder allowed this, but the FBI has arrested a prominent Democrat donor and campaign treasurer on mail fraud charges.

R) So how does a workers’ paradise function, with years of liberal control of the legislature and liberal governors? Well, California’s employment rate is now at record lows. I know…it must be the fault of the Republicans and George W. Bush.

S) One of the reporters who first broke the Gunrunner/Fast and Furious story says that the roadblocks being put up in front of the current Congressional investigations show the need for a second front. The House Foreign Affairs Committee has jurisdiction as well, and has members who would love to sink their teeth into this case. The cover-up on this scandal is making Watergate look tame.

T) Did you know that one person arrested in the Gunrunner program confessed to making IEDs from American military munitions and selling them to one of the Mexican cartels? Within hours of his arrest, the US Attorney’s Office in Arizona ordered him released within hours of his arrest. His whereabouts became unknown shortly thereafter.

U) Forty eight people were shot in Noo Yawk over the Labor Day holiday. Mayor Bloomberg blamed the Constitution for the violence. Typical left wing Democrat.

V) Why is it that Democrat Presidents like to give military-grade technology to China under the guise of non-military technology? Bill Clinton directed Loral Corporation, whose execs were big Clinton donors, to sell China satellite guidance technology. Before that happened, their ICBMs could not accurately target American cities and military installations. Now they have the ability to hit us precisely. Barack Obama has General Electric selling avionics technology to China. This will benefit Jeffrey Immelt, GE’s CEO, who happens to be not only a big Obama Donor, but Obama’s job creation advisor. Congress and the Pentagon are now investigating this mess.

  1. Craw,

    Met some Texans up here cutting trees after Irene. Real good guys, did a lot of charity work. Not a liberal among them. Certain moonbat commenters think the Federal Gummint is the only hope for clean up and rebuilding. Haven't seen a single FEMA rep. I guess we'll just have to count on Texas.

  2. C. Perhaps Jimmy Hoffa needs to disappear like his father? I know some men in Mississippi who would be glad to use him as catfish bait.

    F) The US Postal Service has reached the end of its usefulness to the Democrats. I expect that it will no longer exist (in its present form) within 5 years.

    L) So the NYT has endorsed Sharia Law. Good luck to them trying to implement this in the South. (I wonder what the NYT's staff is smoking these days?)

    U) I heard or read that this number was higher (67 or 68). But the numbers are not important. The real importance is that New York City is a combat zone. And Bloomberg is an idiot.

    Another good edition Crawfish.

  3. Well now, quite a collection of craziness you have here, Crawfish. Could the world be any more nuts? While I could not get the link to the NYTimes to work re: Sharia law, I do indeed agree with your commentary.

    Note also the Nixon quote. Interesting.

  4. Operation Fast and Furious is gonna bury this regime.

    Good post as usual.

  5. Link for Noo Yawk Slimes pro-Shariah Law post:

  6. TGP,
    My father was once an advertising exec with Texas Federal Savings & Loan. He ran a series of ads with the tag line "Texas people are like that."

  7. Ghost,
    C) My Creole wife always says that if I piss her off that much, I'd end up as gator poo. Nothing identifiable even by DNA.
    F) USPS...union, UPS...union (TEAMSTERS...Hoffa!), go with FedEx.
    L) Why do American Jews keep supporting the Slimes and the Dems?
    U) That pesky Constitution thingy....

  8. Mrs. AL,
    I am amazed at the quantity of material I find every day for this. Never ending weirdness.

  9. Gunny,
    we can only hope...and change

  10. What a steaming pile. Here is a question someone in the moron media needs to ask Hoffa: "Hey,Jimmy,how's that federal consent decree working for you"? Prick would keel over with apoplexy on the spot. Slow internet here,so this'll be short.

  11. (B) Those people should get out the shotgun. But nobody will. And no one will help them. The "law enforcement" that is used to intimidate these folks should refuse. But they won't because most of 'em LIKE what they're doing.

    (C) Debbie the Ditz just taking another paragraph out of the liberal/socialist/Marxist playbook: If it didn't happen just say it did and go on about your business....

    (D) I kinda already thought corruption was at Jimmy Sr's level now.

    (G) Anybody going to watch Zero Thursday night?

    (I) Refer back to (C)

    (J) Kinda like if the government gave everybody a million dollars we'd all be rich. Right? Right? Huh, right??

    (L) The Slimes is just kissing ass prepratory to the islamic uprising that will come in this country. They probably already pay dhimmi money in the form of "contributions" or favorable articles.

    (M) If we had a congress with gonads he'd be gone by now.

    (N) I believe according to the Geneva non uniformed combatants can be shot if captured. No trial. No b.s. shot.

    (S) Ain't it odd that the same newspapers who pursued Watergate so avidly are absolutely silent on this issue???

    (U) New Yorkers deserve the mayor they elect.

    (V) Not out there but I suspect Stealth technology was also in the package.

  12. Crawfish,
    Good post as always. It amazes me to the quantity of BS and sheer stupidity that comes from the left.

    Keep up the good work.

  13. Clyde,
    Obama promised to get the feds off of the Teamsters' backs when he was a they'd support him over Hitlery!

  14. Buck,
    B) If word of this behavior spread, the off-grid folks would gain 200,000,000 allies rather quickly
    C) Baghdad Deb
    D) Just not as open about it
    G) I will be working, and my feed (company provided) to Fox News will somehow not work during that time period
    J) Exactly. Where's that money supposed to come from and what happens to the work ethic when it disappears?
    L) Yet they will be among the first to die.
    M) They're scared of the media
    N) Or even tortured. They have no rights according to the rules of warfare...officially classified as spies/saboteurs I believe.
    S) Not surprised at all. BO is black and a Democrat. Untouchable.
    U) Why would anyone in their right mind live there?
    V) GE doesn't have that stuff. They just make engines and avionics.

  15. Hardnox,
    lately my trick has been in deciding what to leave OUT

  16. Here is what I did today about Hoffa which was on Face Book for anyone to copy, put their own info in and send to the FBI HQ in your state and copies to your reps.


    Jimmy Hoffa, in his address on September 4, 2011, Jimmy Hoffa instructed his union members to” take these son-of-a-bitches out" and declared war on the TEA Party.

    Refer to his statements as said in this video: (in Mr. Hoffa's own words), which I therefore submit as evidence to this complaint.

    Such statements constitute numerous acts of domestic terrorism under section 802 of the Patriot Act.

    Given that Mr. Hoffa holds a position of power and influence in the Teamsters Union, and that the Teamsters have previously been active in inflicting acts of violence, I am therefore concluding that Mr. Hoffa has instructed his union members to inflict further violent acts.

    I view Mr. Hoffa's statement to be one of CULPABLE harm.

    Section 802 of the Patriot Act: DOMESTIC TERRORISM
    5) the term `domestic terrorism' means activities that--
    `(A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State;
    `(B) appear to be intended--
    `(i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population;
    `(ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or
    `(iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and
    `(C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States.'

    I also interpret Mr. Hoffa’s statements to be intended to instruct his union members to inflict physical harm and mayhem upon those who oppose the Teamster's agenda, and specifically to be inflicted upon those of the TEA Party or those who support the TEA Party.

    Therefore, I am filing this criminal complaint upon Jimmy Hoffa. Furthermore, I also file this criminal complaint upon Joe Biden and also Barak Obama who have endorsed the statements of Jimmy Hoffa and request the FBI to file criminal charges upon those three individuals for violations of Section 802 of the Patriot Act.

    I will be seeking a Federal Protection Order in Your town,State, District
    Federal Court, Your Federal State Court naming Jimmy Hoffa, Joe Biden, and Barak Obama as well as the entire Teamsters Union, and also seek an order from the court to (1) order the teamsters to not infiltrate or seek to disrupt TEA Party events, and to order that the above three named persons, and any member of the Teamsters to refrain from any activities within one thousand feet of my primary residence and place of business.


  17. What can be truly frightening is that everyday "Joe the plumber" Americans would have to get "permission" from Big Brother to even make a living. The elections of 2012 cannnot come too soon--the very future of America as a Constitutional Republic is at stake. (also did not Joe Biden say that if the president acted without congressional approval he would move to imeach?) I'm NOT gonna hold my breath.

  18. Pepp,
    I found that a couple of days ago, sent it to Gunny at about midnight, and woke up to find it already posted in the Anti-Liberal Zone. That thing is going viral...and I LIKE IT!

  19. Pen Ranger,
    Whatever a Democrat says in public, they usually mean something else. Whatever they title their bills is usually 180 degrees from the actual content.

    I'd truly like to know where they keep finding authority for their actions.

  20. When I read such rants like Hoffas I am remined of onother who spewed such hate and vitrrol---it was in Germany in the 1930s. When will the rest of America wake up to see that the power mongers want to keep them under their thumb? well, they know where they can stick their thumb! As far as the NY-SLIME report I wonder if the family of Danial Pearl would agree with them--I doupt it.


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.
