2011 Post Thanksgiving Claw

Okay, Thanksgiving is over, the weather is turning cruddy, and I have a lot of work to do around Casa Crustacean. That can mean only one thing…time to dig around the attic and break out the Christmas lights.

A) This warning comes too late for your Thanksgiving meal, but take note before your Christmas meal shopping and for all future shopping. If you are a Christian or a Jew, do NOT buy Butterball brand turkey products. The company has admitted that all of their turkeys are slaughtered according to Islamic law including a blessing in the name of Allah. Now that this has become public knowledge, I will never buy any of their products again.

B) Moochelle Obama was at the final Sprint Cup race of the season. When she was introduced to give the command to start engines, NASCAR Nation booed her loudly, as all good patriotic Americans should. Later, she and Jill Biden appeared on the ESPN telecast of the race regarding their involvement in “Joining Forces”, which NASCAR is involved in. She said that the two of them were there to show their love and respect for the troops. Huh? They DESPISE our troops and our military, which is why they and their husbands are actively trying to destroy our forces! Lying beotch!

C) As planned all along by the Democrats, the “super committee” failed to reach a compromise, because the Democrats would not accept any deal that wasn’t made up completely by tax increases and defense cuts. Now come the draconian cuts in defense, along with some cuts in programs for America’s seniors. Notice that there are no cuts in programs for America’s leeches, since they are core Democrat voters. Sultan Bu’raq bin al Obama immediately said that he would veto any attempt to undo the massive cuts to our national defense, proving yet again what side he is on.

D) When I saw this play from the NFL on Sunday, I laughed my butt off. The only disappointment was that the idiot didn’t get a severe neck sprain that would sideline him for a few weeks. Why do those morons think they look good with 18 inches of nasty dreadlocks protruding from their helmets? GET A HAIRCUT!!!

E) The freeloaders have now started issuing demands again. They want FREE public universities, no-interest loans, and forgiveness of ALL student loans. They are pledging to never repay their own student loans. These “people” have absolutely no concept of the real world. The world owes them everything, and they should never have to work for a living.

F) The “occupy” movement can be summed up in two signs. Really, it can! The sad thing is that the holder of the second sign doesn’t realize how true it is. The actions of the extreme lefties are sparking a revolution by those who believe in the Constitution and fiscal sanity.

G) Here’s another update from the Department of Out of Control Federal Government.

H) Where does the Constitution allow the federal government to tell any private company how much it may charge consumers for its services? Oh, that’s right…Obama doesn’t believe in that “flawed” document, so he doesn’t let it get in his way.

I) Newt Gingrich gave yet another smack down to the “occupy” crowd. He told them, “Go get a job right after you take a bath!” Too bad he stepped in it so bad last week with his amnesty idea.

J) NBC once again shows what a completely classless it is. Then again, since it is owned by GE and Jeffrey Immelt, what do you expect?

K) Carlsberg Brewery deserves kudos for this social experiment. Stop the video halfway through and ask yourself what you would do.

L) When a DEMOCRAT Senator is calling for an investigation into the crony-capitalism deals of Barack Obama, you know there is some seriously shady business going on.

11-20-2011 The Weekend Claw

As we enter Thanksgiving week, what do we have to be thankful for? Our economy is purposely being destroyed and our national defense is being undermined by the Administration and their cohorts in Congress. Our heritage, traditions, religions, and our Constitution are constantly being attacked by the far left and their allies in the media and the ACLU. Our government is growing at an exponential rate, completely beyond all semblance of the limited government described by the Constitution. There is scandal after scandal emanating from the White House. The “occupy” protests are getting favorable press and treatment from authorities despite their messages of anti-Americanism, anti-Semitism, freeloading, and anarchy. On top of that, in an election cycle that should be a slam dunk against these socialists, communists, and anarchists; we have a severe lack of strong candidates running for the GOP nomination. Oh, and the jobs market still sucks, as yours truly can attest.

A) Back when Barry Almighty was campaigning, The Crawfish found his main campaign document on his Pennsylvania campaign website. “The Blueprint for Change” was written in 16 chapters, so I wrote a 16-part series dissecting it. That was almost four years ago. Did my criticisms prove correct?

B) On Sunday, Ron Paul reminded all of us that he is one of the biggest idiots in DC when it comes to foreign policy. First of all, he said that American policies were to blame for 9/11, instead of putting the blame where it belongs…on the Quran. Then he said that he would pull all American troops from overseas bases, saying that submarines and long-range missiles are enough of a deterrent. Sorry, moron, but submarines aren’t going to stop the Psychotic Midget with the Funky Hair and High Heels from crossing the DMZ. He finished it off by saying that we should have no sanctions or any other actions against Iran, since there is no proof that they have or are working toward a nuclear weapon.

C) I’m not going to say that the Obama Administration has suborned perjury, but I will point out that other people are now testifying to that point. I know…you’re shocked.

D) Dingy Harry Reid has shown his true anti-American colors…again. He is now on record as saying he will oppose any and all efforts to spare national defense from the draconian cuts that will be triggered by his purposely built-to-fail “super committee”. The Democrats WANT to gut the armed forces as much as possible, and if the “super committee” fails, they can blame it on the GOP no matter what the truth is.

E) One of the Democrats on the “super committee” even came out and said that a lack of a deal wouldn’t be a failure. Rep. Xavier Becerra said that the automatic cuts in defense would be “progress”.

F) There is a plan in writing before Congress to cut the federal budget deficit by $9.7 trillion over the next decade, and it does so without raising taxes. There was even a hearing on this plan, but the Democrats made sure that it would be closed to the public and all microphones were removed from the hearing room. As per usual, the Democrats will pooh-pooh any plan that reduces spending as “not serious” and continue to say that the Republicans are leading a “do-nothing” Congress.

G) European Union has now officially jumped the shark. When the EU bans bottled water companies from saying that their products can prevent dehydration, you know they’re nothing but idiots.

H) Where will the trail of crony capitalism end? As if the Solyndra scandal wasn’t enough, now we are finding out that another “green energy” company used political connections to get a huge taxpayer-funded bailout to the tune of $1.4 BILLION. Of course, the biggest investor in the company, BrightSource, is by no means a conservative. He is none other than Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

I) There’s another crony capitalism deal that has been discovered by the non-mainstream media (which refuses to acknowledge ANY scandal involving Barack Hussein Obama, MMM, MMM, MMM!). The Administration has made a no-bid, no-competition deal, the kind that they excoriated the W Administration for doing in war zones, worth over $433 million for a drug that medical experts say is completely unnecessary. The drug is to treat smallpox, which has been almost completely wiped out on this planet and for which danged-near every single person in the United States has been inoculated. Did I mention that the head of the company is big-time Democrat donor Ronald Perelman, and that he appointed former SEIU purple shirt thug President (and extremely close Friend of Barry) Andy Stern to the company’s Board of Directors to lobby for the contract (and amazingly got another $3 BILLION contract for the company almost immediately)? Oh, and one of the Administration’s top biodefense bureaucrats went after a Department of Health and Human Services person who dared to question the profit projections of the company? This stinks on ice almost as much as the Kennedy deal.

J) Oh, and by the way, the original crony capitalism deal of this bunch is getting worse by the day. Y’all remember when Barack Obama declared that federal bankruptcy laws don’t mean anything if they get in the way of his friendship with the unions? You know, when he gave the actual creditors of General Motors the shaft by giving the company to the UAW and bailing them out for over $85 BILLION? Remember how he promised that the taxpayers would end out profiting from this deal in the end? Well times they are a-changin’, ‘cause the Treasury just announced that the taxpayer LOSSES in that deal have gone up from $14.33 BILLION to $23.6 BILLION. The American taxpayers need to sue the UAW for that money, and need to put every single person involved in that deal in prison for at least 20 years.

K) Only in this Administration… Joe Biden attended a meeting of the Government Accountability and Transparency Board. The meeting was closed to the press and public. They prefer to be opaque.

L) Our good friend Gunny G found a photo from the “occupy” protests that is simply pure gold. Where do they find these idiots?

M) Barry’s illegal alien uncle, who is still holding a job at a liquor store that should be held by an AMERICAN citizen, is trying to get his DUI case thrown out. He’s claiming that his Constitutional rights were violated by the police when they had the audacity to pull him over for driving erratically and nearly crashing into a police car. Apparently Uncle Onyango believes that he has Constitutional rights in this country even though he was ordered to leave the country almost 20 years ago. Listen up, non-dryback, the only rights you have in the USA are the right to get your sorry butt on a plane back to Kenya and to take whatever possessions you have with you. Other than that, you have NO rights.

N) Here is an explanation of why Uncle Onyango is still in the US. The Obama Administration now has a formal policy that they will only deport illegals who are convicted criminals. If that isn’t an incentive for more illegal immigration, I don’t know what is. As long as you don’t commit crimes, other than being here illegally, you can stay as long as you want!

O) Here’s a refresher for those of you who haven’t read my rants about how all of Islam is our enemy. Their not-so-holy book commands that all non-muslims are the enemy of Allah and his faithful.

11-12-2011 The Weekend Claw

Well, it is official. The Crawfish is now just another unemployed blogger. I got laid off last night, on Veterans Day.

A) Here’s a quote from David Gregory, host of “Meet the Press” on NBC, dealing with Herman Cain and the false allegations against him: “Well there is no, you know, grand wizard in the party right now who can really force the issue.” Imagine what would happen if a non-liberal media person uttered those words regarding a black Democrat candidate for political office. What kind of outcry would there be, considering that the term “grand wizard” is ONLY germane to the Ku Klux Klan in America. Again, the Democrats and their allies in the mainstream media are projecting their own actions upon the GOP. What party did the KKK come from? It sprang from the post-Civil War Democratic Party, of course. What party had, until he died last year, a former “grand kleagle” of the KKK in their ranks as a “highly respected Senator”? That would once again be the Democrats. What party refuses to allow black Americans to think for themselves and be successful without government intervention? That would be the plantation owners of the Democratic Party.

B) When you have big wigs from China excoriating Europe for their labor laws and welfare systems, which greatly resemble what the Democrats have been foisting upon the US for decades, saying that they stifle incentive, induce sloth, and make Europe a very bad investment, shouldn’t that wake up folks in DC?

C) Although Obama nixed it on Wednesday, he had been on the verge of implementing a new tax on Christmas trees. Not only was this another of the left’s strikes against Christianity, but the whole purpose of the tax was covered with a smokescreen. Supposedly, it would be to set up a Christmas Tree Promotion Board at the Department of Agriculture, which would work to promote the use of fresh-cut trees to celebrate the holiday that the Democrats want to eliminate from American public life. The reality of the plan is that this board would be a place for the government to employ radical environmentalists, at high wages, to help get rid of the Christmas Tree industry all together. The tax was also an attempt by Sultan Bu’raq bin al Obama to impose a Jizyah tax, which is placed on non-muslims in dhimmitude by their muslim masters.

D) The union president for ICE agents has now given Congress e-mails to back up his previous testimony that Administration officials have ordered the agents to not arrest illegals, including those on their fugitive lists. He also testified that the leadership is increasingly refusing to put any orders in writing, so they can’t be given to Congress or shown to the American public. Wait, didn’t Sultan Bu’raq bin al Obama promise the most transparent Administration in history?

E) Then again, that story dovetails nicely with this one, involving the most anti-American Administration in history imprisoning a Border Patrol Agent because his restraint of a 15-year old illegal alien who was trafficking drugs was a bit harsh, and then threatening to jail his wife if she doesn’t pay the Agent’s court-imposed fine immediately. The illegal alien drug trafficker was set free, of course.

F) The goons of the “Occupy DC” bunch showed their class when they shoved a 78-year old woman down some steps because she had the sheer audacity to attend a dinner tribute to Ronald Reagan. Note from the video that the police are of no help to the non-“occupiers”, since they are union goons themselves. The same protesters used toddlers in wagons to block cars trying to leave the Reagan tribute. If these jerks want any sympathy from me, they should look in the dictionary between a slang word for fecal matter and the name of an STD.

G) Rush Limbaugh chimed in on reports of some health problems at the “occupy” protests. If you don’t laugh at this one, you don’t have a sense of humor!

H) How utterly filthy are these Woodstock wanna-be’s? Well, there’s tuberculosis in the Occupy Atlanta slum, “Zuccotti Lung” and other maladies at the Occupy Wall Street ghetto, and HAZWASTE teams picking up used condoms (I wonder if they are to be included in the stuff from the “occupy” camps being collected by the Smithsonian)and human waste at many of the “camps”. There have been reports of rampant drug use, lots of rape and sexual assault, public nudity, public urination and defecation, and even shootings. There’s all of this, and yet the media and the Democrat politicians still support the “occupiers” and say that they are better than the Tea Partiers.

I) Here is yet another example of how the “occupiers” are anti-American idiots. Wishing for innocent Americans to be murdered by the thousands is such a positive sentiment.

J) The punks of the El Lay “occupy” bunch took over a Burger King for some reason or another. How do you protest against the ultra rich and show solidarity with the “99%” by screwing with the jobs of minimum wage workers?

K) Folks, I don’t need to tell you that Ron Paul is a moron on foreign policy. He’s making the case all too clear all by himself. In his opinion, we need to offer friendship to the Mad Mullahs of Iran instead of sanctions, since our fears of a nuclear-armed Iran are “blown out of proportion.” Really? They have vowed to completely destroy Israel and the Great Satan (that’s good ol’ America, Ron) if they ever get nukes, but fear of their nuclear goals are “blown out of proportion”?????

L) Senator Diane Feinstein (D-Mexifornia) has just admitted what we all knew was behind the whole Fast and Furious scandal. She says that operation proves that we need more gun control laws here in the USA.

M) The Affirmative Action Attorney General was again grilled by the Senate regarding Operation Fast and Furious, and he admitted that he knew of that operation more than just a couple of weeks before it went public, as opposed to what he said before the House. Meanwhile, the truth is that he has known about it since mid-2009, as evidenced by a speech that is still on the Department of Injustice website. True, that speech doesn’t mention Fast and Furious, but it does mention Gunrunner, which is the parent operation that also included Operation Castaway.

N) Imagine that. Barack Obama has insulted yet another leader of a nationthat we mostly refer to as an ally. He then had a conversation with that foreign leader in which both of them trash talk about Bibi Netanyahu. Is there an American ally he won’t disrespect or an American enemy he won’t kiss the arse of?

O) While most of the EU financial crisis attention has been on Greece, the first government to fall as a result of the crisis is that of Prime Minister Berlusconi of Italy. He’s been in that position for seventeen years, which has been amazing by post-WW2 Italian standards. I remember when there had been more Italian governments since the war than there had been years since the war.

P) At least Newt is admitting that his couch scene with Nancy Pelosi in support of a Prophet Algoracle project was “probably the dumbest single thing I’ve done in years.” Heck, we could have told him that the instant it aired! Will that admission be enough for some folks to come around and support perhaps the best idea guy in the race? If he didn’t have the personal negatives that make him unelectable to many, he’d be a superior President.

Q) If you don’t believe in good luck, read this story and it will change your mind.

R) OhgoodLord. You know political correctness has run completely amok when graham cracker is considered offensive on a college campus where the athletic teams are sometimes referred to as the Horny Toads.

S) The lack of morality in the fashion business is well known, but this is taking things a bit far in my humble opinion…especially if the wearer is, shall we say, over a size 7 or lower than a 7 of 10.

T) Speaking of morality problems, an elementary school in Compton recently had a PORN STAR read to first graders at their school. The school denies it, but TMZ has photos of the event (warning, graphic language in the opening paragraph of the hyperlink).

11-5-2011 The Weekend Claw

This has been quite the busy week around Casa Crustacean, so y’all are just gonna have to deal with a short-than-usual column.

A) It is amazing how the leftists in America and their supposed “feminist” allies are attacking Herman Cain over false allegations of sexual harassment. These same people repeatedly defended Teddythedrunk (and completely covered up for his older brother), Bill Clinton, Silky Pony Edwards, Anthony Weiner, et al because the liberal positions of the offenders made them more important than their female victims. For liberals, sexual harassment is a resume enhancer!

B) Here is one situation in which I would welcome immediate US military involvement in Libya. Those munitions must be secured immediately and properly destroyed.

C) A protester at the Occupy Oakland protest was hospitalized with a head injury. As soon as it became known that he is a former Marine, lots of Marines rallied online to his support and against the Oakland PD, who they accuse of firing a projectile that hit him. Those Marines were sadly fooled. The protester is NOT one of their brothers. He is the founder of an anti-Marine website and an anti-Semite. He gets no sympathy from me.

D) Last week we brought y’all the news that ACORN was deeply involved in the “occupy” protests. Now the artists formerly known as ACORN have been shredding documents, firing staff, and telling folks to blame ex-employees in order to cover up their involvement. Sorry, but there ain’t enough litter in the box to cover up that cat turd now, and the shredding of documents might just be a bit illegal.

E) Michelle (***sigh***) Malkin brings us some more of the images from “occupy” protests that the Democrats and their buddies in the media don’t want you to see.

F) The union leaders are realizing that their only hope is to ally themselves with the radical protesters of the “occupy” groups, as the rest of America has pretty much had it with their idiocy. Check out this interview with the President of the United Steelworkers International union (why do American unions put the word “international” in their names when they are all about union power in America?) as he calls for “militancy” and other actions that will do absolutely nothing for the thugs except give them an outlet while they are out of work.

G) Speaking of union idiots and being out of work, the union The Crawfish is currently a member of (until my layoff next Friday) has their contract with Lockheed up for renewal this coming spring. They are already talking about the need to strike until they can get a much better deal than the contract they are under now. Since the F-35 program is under severe pressure from the government, this is the time to go big, and the company will have to cave in to the union, or so union logic says. The reality is that Lockheed is laying off lots of people because the government is demanding that the price of the plane be cut down, and since the government has already announced that they will be purchasing fewer jets over the next two years than originally planned there will be even more layoffs coming. Sounds like the perfect time to strike and make big demands, doesn’t it?

H) Nancy Pelosi believes that the federal government should shut down a manufacturing plant if the workers do not want to be unionized. Really? Where does the federal government get ANY say in the contractual dealings between employers and employees?

I) It is rather interesting that this story comes from an Israeli news source instead of an American one. The Obama Administration is pulling all law enforcement training manuals, including those dealing with terrorism, in order to purge them of all non-positive references to Islam, after the Injustice Department received pressure from Hamas operatives in the United States. The operatives mentioned in the story do not include the top Hamas operative in the country because the journalist didn’t want to offend Barack Hussein Obama.

J) I really don’t know how a football games ends up with the score in this story, especially a high school game in which the quarters are only 12 minutes long. Disclosure statement: The Crawfish played against Garland Christian in the early 80’s.

K) Our good friend Gunny G reminds us of the ten principles of conservatism, and what they mean as we gear up for the elections next year.

L) Another prominent, rich, white Democrat who has made a life out of using other people’s money finds himself in a potential heap of trouble. Former Goldman Sachs CEO, Democrat Senator from Noo Joisey, and Governor of Noo Joisey (who violated state seat belt laws every time he rode in a government vehicle and left the state with $8 billion in fresh debt) Jon Corzine runs an investment firm called MF Global. It has just been noticed that MF Global is MISSING hundreds of millions of investor dollars. Of course, the media is just noting that Corzine’s company might have some bookkeeping problems instead of pounding on MF Global like they did with Enron.

M) We know the GOP is on to something serious now, thanks to Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Corruptionois). She compared the GOP Representatives who voted to subpoena White House documents dealing with Solyndra to “birthers”. Whenever conservatives get too close to the truth, Democrats try to belittle them, since the Dems have no factual ammunition.

N) Now this story is funny on two levels. A woman who was 19-years old at the time is claiming to have had sex with Justin Bieber, who was 16 at the time, backstage after a concert and it resulted in her having a baby. She wants child support. First of all, she is admitting to statutory rape, since he was only 16. Secondly, how could he be the father if his balls STILL haven’t dropped?
