For the vast majority of the Mainstream Propaganda Ministry Media, business goes on as usual. You know, ignore thousands of people involved in hundreds of Tea Party protests against the “stimulus” bills in cities all across the nation so that you can do a heart-warming report on the 97-year-old man who finally got his GED. Fail to report a few dozen more corrupt wanna-be Obama administration flunkies bailing out due to all the illegal, immoral and crooked dealings in their past bubbling to the surface to make time for a three-part special called “Iran-Contra…the Bitter Legacy Lives On”. Throw a hissy fit about Sarah Palin’s “ethics violations” for wearing an Artic Cat jacket at a public event in Alaska but still never even admit to there being any questions about Obama’s birth place.

This age-old tradition of the Ministry of Truth would seem, at last, to be starting to crumble around the edges. Network TV ratings are sinking ever lower while, all across the nation, liberal rags masquerading as “news”papers are dropping like flies.

“We don’t understand it,” said a spokesperson for the Philadelphia Daily Betrayer. “Those ignorant gun-toting Bible-thumping hillbillies out there in Fly Over Country should be buying more of our papers than ever. How else are we ever going to enlighten those witless inbred savages to the glories of socialism, abortion, atheism, and gun control?”

Not to worry! Senator Benjamin Cardin, a Maryland Democrat, has proposed a bill to allow newspapers to operated as tax-exempt non-profit organizations. Like churches. So the sheeple can continue to worship at the alter of liberal propaganda, I guess.

According to Cardin, "As local papers are closing, we're losing a valuable tradition in America -- critically important to our communities, critically important to our democracy." From his pit in Hell, the ghost of Joe Stalin added, “Nationalize the media! Great idea, Comrade!” but Joseph Goebbels, in the pit next door, protested, “Nein! You are stealing from der Fuhrer's playbook!”

As all this transpires, a tiny handful of intrepid muckrakers are starting to figure out the Obama Regime just might not be all sweetness and light. At recent press conferences, we’re starting to see a pattern. The old-school “journalists” who might actually ask a serious question now and then are being ignored and snubbed so that the Big 0 can field staged softball questions…even softer than the ones the Mainstream tossed him during the campaign…from deep, incisive publications like People Magazine and Redbook. “Lord Barack, is it true that you love puppies and children?”

Thankfully, a few of the troops are thinking about breaking ranks as the small handful of media hacks whose brains still function actually become somewhat inquisitive about things. Of course, these are things you won’t hit the CBS Evening News with Commie Couric anytime soon, but they’re a start.

Not that the European Union is anything we’d want to emulate, but even they are finding fault with the Obama Regime and its antics, so much so that AP even reported it briefly. At a summit meeting in Strasbourg, France, Czech Prime Minister Mirek Topolanek said of Obama’s plan, "…all of these steps, these combinations and permanency is the road to hell."

The Canadians have a few words to say, too. Americans Largely Silent as Their Nation is Systematically Destroyed: "Incompetent Evil in Charge
The same people responsible for the many disasters now surrounding every American household, were elected in 2006 and 2008 to fix what they broke. Instead of reversing course and placing their faith in the principles of freedom, they are installing more of the same failed entitlement policies that created the problem and they are doing so at a fever pace."

No! Say it ain't so! CNN?!?!? "Even though he was almost a member of the new Obama administration, New Hampshire Republican Judd Gregg Sunday slammed President Obama’s approach to handling the country’s fiscal outlook. 'The practical implications of this is bankruptcy for the United States,” Gregg said of the Obama’s administration’s recently released budget blueprint. “There’s no other way around it.'"

Oh my God! Can it really be true? Friendly fire from the “Bush is Hitler Chimp” New York Times?!?!? Paul Krugman: “The zombie ideas have won. The Obama administration is now completely wedded to the idea that there’s nothing fundamentally wrong with the financial system — that what we’re facing is the equivalent of a run on an essentially sound bank.”

Even that overstuffed creature Maureen Dowd is starting to sound like Ronald Reagan: "It’s a time in America’s history where we need less smooth jazz and more martial brass.”

The NY Daily News is even starting to figure out that our entire Federal government is crooked as a dog’s hind leg. "Everybody makes mistakes, and I made a beaut the other day. I was wrong to call members of Congress blow-hards and buffoons and declare them worse than useless.I was too kind.I should have said our representatives are gangsters in pinstripes and pearls. They are petty tyrants and the more power they grab, the more at risk we are. Homeland Security should flash Code Red any time this Congress is in session."

Over at Newsmax, former Mafia Kingpin Michael Franzese agrees with the gangster analogy. He is comparing Obama and his Congressional minions' nationalization plan, quite accurately, to the operating methods of the Mob:

"Twenty years ago, I would have applauded the government’s move to control the AIG bigwigs. When I was doing business for the Colombo Crime Family, I would often "bail out" a failing company. When the boss had nowhere to go, when no legit lender would lend him a dime, or when his suppliers were threatening to throw him into bankruptcy, he came to me. Mob guys looked for business opportunities like this every day. Great way for us to own a business.

Once the owner took my money, or used my name, I owned him. He wasn’t about to get a pay hike when he owed me money. He wasn’t buying a new car or taking any paid vacations either. I didn’t care how hard he worked. And if he didn’t toe the line, I would throw him out and take the company over."

Sound familiar?

We still have a long way to go, but a few people are finally starting to shine the light around and the cockroaches are scattering in every direction. Without talk radio, the Internet, and other alternate news sources, though, I have no doubt we would all still be sitting quietly in the dark listening to the soothing voices telling us, "All is well. I am the Great & Powerful Oz. Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain."

Gun Nut Roundup March '09

"We Shall Overcome"-- Second Amendment March Is On!

Many "civil rights" movements have marched on Washington D.C., from the WWI vets, to Martin Luther King Jr., to the so-called Million Mom March. In 2010, it will be gun owners turn.

In April 2010 (this blogger hopes for April 19th) gun owners from all over the country will descend upon D.C. and gather in the National Mall. (No, that ain't a big-ass shopping mall, it's the grassy area where all the monuments are!) For those who can't go to D.C. (due to scheduling conflicts or active brain cells), smaller satellite marches will be held in state capitals in the rest of fly-over country. Who knows, the national media might even briefly mention the whole thing.

Check out the march's official website at:

Bloomberg Bites A Big One

The U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear the case known as City of New York v. Beretta and a similar case out of D.C. The cases sought to hold gun manufacturers responsible for the use of their products by criminals. NY v. Beretta was originally filed by "America's Mayor," the lisping RINO Rudolph Giuliani in 2000. Later the case was struck down by the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals under the 2005 "Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act."

The new "mayah," anti-gun extremist, Vladimir Putin wannabe, super-RINO Michael Bloomberg pressed ahead with the case anyway, pissing away countless taxpayer dollars on his anti-Second Amendment jihad. By refusing to hear the appeal, the Supreme Court has shut down Bloomberg's plans (this time) and allowed the "Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act" to stand.

In Liberal Academia, Free Speech Earns A Visit To Police Station

After delivering a class presentation, a Central Connecticut State University (CCSU) student found himself "standing tall in front of the man" at the local cop shop. Student John Wahlberg, a member of the group Students for Concealed Carry on Campus (SCCC) was summoned to the police station after communications professor Paula Anderson reported he and two other students to her superiors after they had completed their assigned task of discussing an issue relevant to the media.

When Wahlberg (who lives off campus) arrived at the station, the police asked him the location of the guns registered in his name. (Reason # Four-bajillion and seven to oppose gun registration.) When he explained that he kept them in a safe at home, the police sent him on his way.

It just shows how much the supposedly "open-minded" and "tolerant" higher education system really appreciates any point-of-view outside of liberal orthodoxy. As Katie Kasprzak, SCCC director of public relations puts it: "The thing that has got me kind of concerned is that the opponents of concealed carry on campus will say that the campus is a place for the exchange of ideas. (But) when students are asked to make a presentation on a controversial issue, they are turned in."

Not so very long ago, right here in River City, we had a tidbit on the state of MO (pronounced Missour-ee in Iowa and Missour-uh south of the state line) warning LEO's to watch out for the swarms of mean, evil, horrible, nasty militia types who, according to their bulletin, apparently consist largely of those who support Third Party candidates such as Ron Paul, Bob Barr, and Chuck Baldwin.

That reminded me that the neighboring State of Iowa, increasingly infested by big city bed-wetting liberal weenies who have way too much pull in the state legislature, passed some kind of anti-militia law awhile back. The slightest whiff of independent thought immediately sends said libs into a panicky pants-peeing-oh-my-gaia-big-government-save-us mode.
I found the 2001 law as:
29A.31 Unlawful organizations:.
It shall be unlawful for any body of persons, other than the National Guard and the troops of the United States, to associate themselves together as a military organization within the limits of this state without the written permission of the governor, which the governor may at any time revoke, but this provision shall not prevent civic, social, or benevolent organizations from wearing uniforms and swords not in conflict with the other provisions of this chapter.
On the other hand, the Iowa State Constitution says:
ARTICLE VI. MILITIA. Composition--training. SECTION 1. The militia of this state shall be composed of all able-bodied male citizens, between the ages of eighteen and forty-five years, except such as are or may hereafter be exempt by the laws of the United States, or of this state, and shall be armed, equipped, and trained, as the general assembly may provide by law.
Judging by the 2001 law, it would seem an amendment to the State Constitution might be in order. The last sentence should read, in part, "shall be unarmed, unequipped, and untrained, as the general assembly may deny by law."
Yeah, I know they can sneak that one past, since the new law does say the governor can give permission to someone to train together. Of course, it would be a cold day in hell before an Iowa governor would allow any such thing. The wussies in Des Moines are scared of the Boy Scouts.
Another favorite lib argument is that the National Guard is actually the militia these days. Au contrere. First off, the Guard is not composed of, "all able-bodied male citizens, between the ages of eighteen and forty-five years."
In addition, the Iowa State Constitution also specifies of the militia:
Section 3. All commissioned officers of the militia, (staff officers excepted,) shall be elected by the persons liable to perform military duty, and shall be commissioned by the governor.
The National Guard has its officers commissioned by, and in the same manner as, the Active Duty Army. I'm not so sure that this is actually an improvement over the Civil War-era election of officers, as mentioned in the Constitution. For instance, in our modern military system, a horny, vomiting-out-the-dorm-room-window 21-year-old frat boy with a degree in Impressionist Art is somehow qualified to be the next Robert E. Lee while a grizzled NCO with 15 years of leadership experience around the globe and a chestful of combat decorations is completely unqualified and, the way the system works, cannot be commissioned, even on the battlefield.
For a greater understanding of the United States Army's officer commissioning system and how it functions (dysfunctions?), please read Anton Meyer's Once an Eagle or Colonel David Hackworth's About Face. It will make everything perfectly clear.
But I digress. And, as is usually the case when I digress, I don't care. Anyway, back to the fear and loathing of the scary boogieman militia thing. Any government that is so fearful of a citizen militia must really have a helluva guilty conscience about something they're doing.

Airwolf Kicks Commie Butt!

I was out at my father-in-laws place the other night. He had just set up his new federally-mandated digital TV converter box (you read about that in the Constitution, right?), which meant that he now has about 20 channels compared to his usual five. We flipped around the channels and ended up on a rerun of the 1980’s series “Airwolf.” I thought this was unusual since I’d had a satellite dish for 5 years and have never seen “Airwolf” reruns on.

If you have never seen “Airwolf” (which means you’re probably flamingly gay), it is the heart-warming story about a man and his heavily-armed, futuristic attack helicopter. Jan-Michael Vincent plays the lead character of Stringfellow Hawke, a test pilot who steals the highly advanced prototype Airwolf attack chopper from the government. He says he will return it as soon as the government rescues his brother who is a still being held as a POW in Vietnam.

As long as he’s got the chopper anyway, he uses it for do-gooder weekly adventures with his friend and co-pilot Dominic Santini (portrayed by the venerable actor Ernest Borgnine). Trying to increase viewership, the network urged producers to add a female character, which they did in the second season. I don’t recall her name, but older brother Bawb referred to her disdainfully as “Sandy Duncan.”

The people didn’t really matter though, as the real star of the show was the Airwolf helicopter itself. It was built from the fuselage of a civilian Bell 222 helicopter. Airwolf possessed jet thrusters that could propel it to supersonic speeds and a bewildering array of electronic gadgets, which allowed the aircraft to do whatever the writers required of it that week.

It was armed to the teeth with every type of weapon system that the writers could find without the aid of the internet, including AIM-9 Sidewinder, AGM-114 Hellfire and AGM-45 Shrike missiles, even Paveway bombs and the M712 Copperhead guided munition which is normally fired from a 155mm howitzer. In its wing sponsons, Airwolf also had two 40mm cannons and two 25mm chain guns. (That is, it did until defense contractor McDonnell-Douglas reminded “Airwolf” producers that “chain gun” was a registered trademark. After that they were just 25mm cannons.)

Although the show seems delightfully cheesy now, when I was a ten to twelve-year-old boy it seemed wicked awesome. I even had an Airwolf poster on my wall, with Jan-Michael Vincent menacingly gripping a Micro-Uzi and the chopper parked in the background (which might mean I’m flamingly gay).

In the episode that I watched recently, the heroes (who also run a civilian charter service) flew a group of archaeological students and their professor into some Latin American commie-hellhole which had topography eerily reminiscent of southern California. After they dropped them off, sure enough, the students were captured by bad guys, necessitating Jan-Michael and Borgnine go and get Airwolf to kick a little commie butt. The army of the commie-hellhole carried an odd assortment of Kalishnikovs and dressed-up Mini-14s, as well as at least one bazooka.

During the valiant heliborne rescue, as Airwolf tried to pull a sling load of hostages out of the enemy compound, it took a bazooka round directly to the rotor hub. This led to mechanical difficulties so grave that Ernest Borgnine (who was flying Airwolf at that moment) had to grimace severely and say “C’mon baby!” several times as he throttled her skyward. Luckily a blacksmith in a nearby village was able to fashion a replacement rotor part for them. And he probably didn’t charge them 14 billion dollars for it. (So suck on that, McDonnell-Douglas!)

Not willing to let Airwolf, or the civilian transport plane that the hostages had been loaded onto, leave their airspace alive, the commie-hellhole quickly scrambled its MiGs to intercept them. (A MiG was a Soviet-designed fighter jet, for those of you who didn’t grow up during the cold war [also making you gay, by the way].) The MiGs fired on but were unable to destroy the civie transport plane, whereas Airwolf was able to tangle with and down all four MiGs.

No wonder we won the Cold War!

Thank goodness we did, too. We were able to defeat the forces of big government collectivism and retain our free republic where people don’t have to worry about government surveillance and torture… um… I mean… We held onto our nation of rugged individualism, where hard work and responsibility are rewarded while slothfulness and gluttony are allowed to… er… uh... We made a capitalist utopia where the “invisible hand” of free-market forces, such as consumer choice, naturally channel resources away from unproductive areas and toward the most efficient… um… Oh, crap!

Airwolf, you’re needed in Washington D.C. immediately! Bring your Copperheads. C’mon baby!

Some of us here can still remember something call the 70’s. In the late 70’s, early 80’s there was a “consensus” of “scientific experts” who foretold our doom in the form of a new Ice Age. It was on the cover of Time & Newsweak. School children, such as myself, were indoctrinated with this tripe. “The sky is falling! The sky is falling!”

As it turned out, the New Ice Age was highly over-rated. I didn’t see a single glacier or mammoth. All the hoopla, media hacks, and “experts” quietly slunk away.

But then came Albert Gore, Jr, aka the Goracle. Al wanted so badly to be important, to have power and influence, to be looked up to. Problem was, he was a big weenie. He had to have some kind of gimmick. He found it in Global Warming.

It was such an important issue, the Clinton Regime immediately set out to prove it, by silencing any dissent. During the Clinton-Gore years, any scientific research supported by government funding or grants that did not find “truth" in favor of Global Whining immediately had all its funds cut. Voila, a consensus!

When a worldwide study of scientists concluded we didn’t have the data or knowledge to prove any of this hooey, US politicians and media hacks re-wrote the bazillion page report into a page-long synopsis that basically said, “AAAAIIEEEE! WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE! UNLESS, OF COURSE, ALGORE SAVES US!”

Then we had to put up with Owl Gore’s Inconvenient BS and a Nobel “Fellow Liberals Stroking Each Other” Prize and all the media hype and a fanatical religion of lefties who found and fell in love with a false prophet to worship. At least until Obama came along. In Kalifornia, the Granola State (it’s full of fruits, flakes, and nuts), the Goracle’s silly alarmist book even replaced the Bible in hotel rooms.

The facade is at last beginning to slip. When the British education system, which is arguably even more pathetic than ours, tried to indoctrinate their young skulls full of mush with the Goracle’s mockumentary, a judge stepped in and made the “educators” also point out the nine most egregious “un-truths” of the movie.

More and more, everywhere from NASA on down, “scientists” have been caught manipulating, altering, and out-right falsifying data to make their case for global warming. “It’s such an important issue, we must fake stuff to draw attention to it!” This guy is just one of many caught with his hand in the Goracle cookie jar.

In Europe, even the politicians are waking up and calling a spade a spade. The Irish and the Czechs are speaking out. Polls in Great Britain now show the pendulum swinging past 50% for those who are becoming non-believers vs. those who still worship and blindly flagellate themselves and their neighbors at the Temple of Gore. Down Under, the Aussies are chiming in too.

Lastly, an ever-growing number of scientists are daring to speak out against the hoax. John Coleman, founder of the Weather Channel, is leading the charge of honest scientists (he claims 30,000) and, of course, getting almost zero press coverage from the Lamestream Press. They have almost as much vested interest in a good manufactured crisis as the politicians do.

Coleman and crew are not alone. Part of a U.S. Senate Minority Report found more heretics. Here's the whole story, of which this is an excerpt.

More Than 650 International Scientists Dissent Over Man-Made Global Warming Claims Over 650 dissenting scientists from around the globe challenged man-made global warming claims made by the United Nations Intergovernemntal Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and former Vice President Al Gore. This new 231-page U.S. Senate Minority Report report -- updated from 2007’s groundbreaking report of over 400 scientists who voiced skepticism about the so-called global warming “consensus” -- features the skeptical voices of over 650 prominent international scientists, including many current and former UN IPCC scientists, who have now turned against the UN IPCC.

Even the late great novelist Michael “Jurassic Park” Crichton, known for the meticulous research that went into his books, looked into the global whining debate and exposed the “evidence” for what is really is. Pick up a copy of State of Fear, it’s really worth the read. Especially when the idiot character who’s supposed to be Martin Sheen gets eaten by the jungle cannibals. HAHAHA!

We could link to such “overlooked” stories all day. Of course, it would make no difference to the addicts of liberal environmental wacko orthodoxy, many of whom probably still think Piltdown Man was real. "Eyes they have, but they do not see; They have ears, but they do not hear."

As Agent Mulder would say, however, “The truth is out there.” Some folks out on the street are even now getting to see it, thanks to “alternate media” breaking the Ministry of Truth’s monopoly of propaganda and indoctrination. Under scrutiny, the canons of the Cult of Gore don’t hold up, but none of the jihadists are willing to scrutinize their own dogma.

It almost makes me want to break out the parkas and go club some baby seals just to really annoy them!

It would seem that there might be other things that our beloved government could worry about in this day and age than the Amish, but appearances are deceiving. In Pennsylvania, where the hotbed of Amish milk traffickers was only recently crushed, the pacifist Christian sect is now in deep you-know-what…literally…with a judge over outhouses.

The Amish, as they do in Iowa where I grew up, have their own small country schools. This school had two quaint old structures out back known as outhouses, something everyone in this country used for the past three hundred years or so. My parents grew up using outhouses. The planet somehow survived. But now these Amish crappers are suddenly a threat to mankind.

Due to some goofy, overzealous, inappropriate-to-the-circumstances environmental wacko law, the state of Pennsylvania (named after William Penn, BTW, a Quaker who came to this continent because he and others of his faith just wanted to be LEFT THE HELL ALONE by the government in Europe) has gone after Andy Swartzentruber for failing to make the outdoor poopers comply with the mandates of the state.

When it comes right down to it, Andy is being punished for standing up to the government. They hate that. They want quiet, obedient little serfs who don’t dare to question their (often unconstitutional and arbitrary) authority. Andy committed the crime of just saying “No!” to petty bureaucratic tyranny. Now he will pay the price.

Andy’s cooling his heels in the local slammer while the Amish school…and its deadly privies…has been padlocked by authorities to keep the insurrectionists out. Next, the government will probably go after the Amish kids for not attending the school they are locked out of by the same government.

You know things are bad when the Amish have to home school!

WASHINGTON — The Obama Regime and Demoncrats in Congress have proudly announced, “We plan to inflict upon the American people the largest middle-class tax increase in history!”

Whoops. No, wait. That was what it was called during the presidential campaign when Juan McCain proposed the idea of taxing health care benefits. And that was with Juan at least offering we the people a $5000 tax credit to let us keep a wee bit of our own money.

Now that the Dems have been spending trillions like drunken sailors, pissing away money we don’t have, and sky-rocketing the already atrocious debt, they have finally started to think that maybe there might have to be some funds to pay for all their shenanigans. Suddenly, McCain’s greedy evil plot is now a wonderful, viable, needed pogrom, er, I mean program.

Much to my disgust and contempt, Montana’s senior senator Max Baucus is leading the charge to punish the few who are still employed and still have health care in order to pay for massive wasteful useless government spending programs dreamed up by Max and his congressional cronies. By a strange coincidence, all Congresscritters just happen to be exempt from paying Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and all other taxes while they “serve” us.

Max said, "Everybody's got to share together in the solution." Except, of course, for the assinine government officials who caused the mess.

Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) babbled, "I think it's extremely important from a credibility standpoint to show the American people that you're making savings in the enormous sums now being spent on health care before you go out and ask them for billions of dollars more."

I could spend all day on that statement. (A) You corrput sleazebags have no credibilty anymore. (B) "raising our taxes" is not "making savings". (C) You don't ask for billions of dollars, you just take it.

Let's say you don’t want to play along with the crooked scams of the new regime. Prepare to be attacked and demonized. Just ask South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford. He decided to have his state“just say no” to wasteful pointless “stimulus” money with all the little federal strings attached to it, and now he is on the poopoo list of the Obama Regime.

According to this politico story…Sanford communications director Joel Sawyer responds: "Governor Sanford continues to believe that problems created by too much debt will never be solved by more debt. It's time to put the partisan politics aside and for people who supported this stimulus legislation to start shooting straight with taxpayers on who is paying the bill for all of this spending. This so-called 'stimulus' represents a federal predatory loan, the cost of which will be borne by future generations who will never have a chance to vote from office the very people who are saddling them with unprecedented spending and guaranteed future tax increases."

The DNC responded with paid TV attack ads trying to demonize Sanford. They eloquently defended the strong merits, integrity, and importance of their “stimulus” packages thus: “Sanford sucks! He is a big poopoo head! He won’t play nice! We’re gonna dump sand down his pants out in the sandbox!”

In reality, the DNC ad ends a little more ominously, “If he wants to use the jobs and recovery plan to posture, we're going make him pay a price." Sanford has reportedly bought a waterproof pillow as he was also told he would enjoy “sleeping with the fishes.”

If all this isn’t enough, now any of us who dare to even think bad thoughts about Big Brother or presume to favor a third political party over the entrenched corrupt "Big Two" are at best militia men and at worst domestic terrorists. Below is part of a bulletin distributed to some law enforcement agencies in Missouri on “dangers” to look for. What should police officers keep a wary eye out for to identify Nazi kooks who are gonna leap out of their cars tossing potato mashers and firing Schmeissers?

From the bulletin: “Militia members most commonly associate with 3rd party political groups. It is not uncommon for militia members to display Constitutional party, Campaign for Liberty, or Libertarian material. These members are usually supporters of former Presidential Candidate: Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin, and Bob Barr.”

Attorney General Eric “Heinrich” Holder added, “Soon, we will require all parties who meet these criteria to wear armbands so that they may be readily identified. We’re not sure what to put on the armband yet; the six-sided star has already been used. But we’ll think of something. Maybe a little picture of the Constitution with that big red 'Ghostbusters' X through it.”

"The Messiah" To Heal The Sick; Make The Crippled Walk

For about the last eight years the liberal media has presented us with a morality play better than that of any found in mythology. In this rendition, an evil king, King George, has been personally holding handicapped people down in their wheelchairs by withholding federal funds from stem cell research. But now a handsome young prince has vanquished the evil king and promises to free the medically oppressed from the wicked king’s spell.

For the millions of Americans who bought into this narrative, it stands to reason that all it should take now is a mere scribble from the new god-king’s mighty pen and the paralyzed will leap from their wheelchairs and the comatose will pull out their feeding tubes and dance a jig.

Lest you think I exaggerate the expectation levels, consider the words of Roman Reed, a stem cell research advocate, himself confined to a wheelchair. At the ceremony where President Obama signed the executive order reversing Bush’s ban on federal funding of stem cell research, Reed stated, "Under President John F. Kennedy, we were the first to walk on the moon. Under President Obama we'll be the first to walk on Earth."

As someone who is watching a loved one slowly succumb to an incurable and fatal brain disease, I understand this hope for the miracle, for that magic bullet, that medical research may bring. But the Democrats have sold a story to people that the magic bullet ALREADY exists, that Bush has been callously hoarding it in his breast pocket like a deranged Barney Fife. They have raised many people’s hopes too high, all to pick up a few votes. Shame on them!

The whole sorted affair shows why there should be a separation of scientific research and state. By rights, there should already be such a separation, as the Constitution gives the federal government NO authority over medical research. Stem cell research should have been neither Bush’s nor Obama’s call.

As the government expands its control over health care, we can expect more and more medical issues to become objects of this tug-of-war and the ill to become pawns in the political game between the two parties as they seek wedges issues to gain votes.

Is stem cell research immoral? I’m pro-life, but yet I don’t know if it is or not. The whole issue is so shot through with partisan maneuvering that it’s hard to separate fact from crap, and I don‘t have the energy. But I do know that it is immoral to promise the ill that they could be well, if only the right party was in power, just to gain votes. I hope that the Democrats get burned when the people realize that the messiah that was sold to them is a false one.

Those of us who never have believed in "Him" must assume that the people will come to their senses eventually. They have to or all is lost. In the mean time, we can console ourselves with the words of Thomas Jefferson. In the dark days of 1798, after the passage of the tyrannical Alien and Sedition Acts, he wrote:

"A little patience, and we shall see the reign of witches pass over, their spells dissolve, and the people, recovering their true sight, restore their government to its true principles. It is true that in the meantime we are suffering deeply in spirit, and incurring the horrors of a war and long oppressions of enormous public debt. If the game runs sometimes against us at home we must have patience till luck turns, and then we shall have an opportunity of winning back the principles we have lost, for this is a game where principles are at stake.”



We’ll start out rather benignly, as things go. Teddy “Splash” Kennedy is going to be knighted by the Queen of England. I admit it’s irrelevant to this issue, but most folks have never heard the story of Daddy Kennedy. He had strong pro-Nazi leanings, was waiting for England’s doom during the early stages of WWII, and was suggesting that we learn to play nice with Adolph since he was obviously going to be the new top dog in Europe.

Back to Ted the Swimmer. People have long called the Kennedies America’s Royal Family. Now they’re making it official. British Prime Minister Gordon Brown announced before Congress during his recent visit that Teddy will be given an honorary knighthood (and a 55-gallon drum of Beefeater’s gin) by the Queen Mum herself.

One minor problem. Article 1 of the United States Constitution, which Flipper himself has sworn to support and defend, states: "No title of nobility shall be granted by the United States: and no person holding any office of profit or trust under them, shall, without the consent of the Congress, accept of any present, emolument, office, or title, of any kind whatever, from any king, prince, or foreign state."

Of course, Congress will "consent" to this, so it won't technically be a violation. Then again, they might just ignore the consent part altogether. In case you haven't noticed, they're not real sticklers for obeying the law of the land these days. At best, it's merely a nuisance and speed bump.

Speaking of just ignoring the Constitution outright, a North Carolina judge, Herr Ned Magnum, in the crossfire of a divorce dispute, has ordered a woman be forced to send her home-schooled children to public schools. Magnumb said he made the determination based on his “guiding principle” and “for the children.” We can’t have judges making decisions in court using the "Constitution" or that pesky old "Rule of Law", now can we?

Magnumb said his decision was, "What's in the best interest of the minor children," and conceded he was putting his judgment in place of the mother's.

Mangumb also stated his decision was "not ideologically or religiously motivated" but that ordering the children into publik skools would "challenge the ideas you've taught them." The judge added that publik skool would "prepare these kids for the real world and college" and allow them "socialization." (Or was it socialism?)

The judge finished, “These kids are missing out on so much not being indoctrinated by the State…Obama Youth meetings, the Young Communists, gay rights and abortion rallies, sex education, being exposed to atheism, drug use, and violence in the public name it. The mother vill obey the State or go to das re-education camp!”

OK, I made that last one up, but it's coming someday. Just give ‘em time.

In one final news item, the Department of Homeland (Motherland and Fatherland were already taken) Security triumphantly announced that their terrorist watch list has just passed the million mark. That’s right, one million of us are now suspected terrorists. A spokesperson for the agency said, “By 2012, we hope to have everyone who has been critical of the Obama Regime, every gun owner in America, and anyone who publicly mentions the U.S. Constitution placed on the list as well."

So, until next time, happy serfdom.

Oh boy, oh boy. Where to even begin this week with the "Lunatics are Running the Asylum" stories?

In Obama news....Congress once passed these laws about lobbyists. Lobbyists are not supposed to be appointed and able to work on issues that they once lobbied for.

Laws, of course, DO NOT APPLY to the Obama minions. Some animals are more equal than others. Other lobbyists have already been picked up by the Obama Regime and now we can add these two yahoos. General counsel Jocelyn Frye, formerly of the National Partnership for Women & Families, and Cecilia Munoz former vice president of the racist semi-militant Hispanic "I Hate America" group LA RAZA. The latter is also a favorite of John McCain, BTW. See photos below of what La Raza is all about.

But there are laws against hiring lobbyists, you say. How can this happen? Easy, Obama now grants his minions "Ethics Waivers". Already included elsewhere were the Tax Cheat Waivers. The Obama Regime is no doubt working on a whole new line of fashionable waivers for the above-the-law liberal weenies of the "in-crowd". These new waivers are to include Intelligence Waivers, Honesty Waivers, Infidelity Waivers, Drug Waivers, Fraud Waivers, Treason Waivers, and Murder Waivers, just to name a few.

Meanwhile, since the economy and employment is so good we can afford to lose thousands more jobs, so fern-feelin' flower-sniffin' bunny-huggin' eco-wackos, such as House Resources Committee Chairman Nick Rahall, have re-introduced Rahall's "mining reform" legislation. These odious oppressive over-regulations would, in effect, pretty much shut down the mining industry in the U.S. Ask the loggers; it can happen. I'll bet all those United Mine Workers Union members are really happy they obeyed their "leadership" and voted for these Demo-Marxist clowns.

In state-level government over-reach, oppression, and tyranny two left-wing liberal lawmakers from Connecticut, Mike Lawlor and Andrew McDonald, attempted to pass their "Henry the Eighth" bill that would have forced government control over the Catholic Church in Connecticut. They tried to sneak it through without any interference of "We the People" but word got out and they faced a firestorm of outrage from those they had hoped to rule.

After a barrage of phone calls, emails, letters and impromptu demonstrations, the spineless and brainless law-making tyrants have suddenly back-pedalled in fear and killed the least for this legislative session. Apparently, though, the two government weenies who engineered the fiasco still can't figure out what caused all the furor and why the people think they're wrong. Really. I'm not making that up.

The morons should remember that they took an oath to "support the Constitution of the United States." If they ever bothered to actually read the thing, they would notice right there in Amendment One of the Bill or Rights: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..."

In other news, more and more financial experts warn that the economy is getting worse, bail-outs are worthless, and the country is tottering on the brink of the next Great Depression.

President Obama responded by holding his hands over his ears and loudly shouting "BLABLABLABALAB I'M NOT LISTENING BLABLABLABLA!" and then issuing more Ethics Waivers to former Chicago hitmen he's adding to his staff.

Hey, what's that loud swirling, flushing noise?

Obama Too Busy For "Economy Stuff?"

Transcript excerpt from

OBAMA: By the time we got here, there already had been an enormous infusion of taxpayer money into the financial system, and the thing I constantly try to emphasize to people is that if coming in the market was doing fine, nobody would be happier than me to stay out of it.


OBAMA: You know, I have more than enough to do without having to worry about the financial system.
RUSH: Now, that's an inspiring thing to say. I have more than enough to do without having to worry about the financial system. This does not inspire confidence among people who listen to what this man says. This frightens them. This whole answer that he gave, "I constantly try to emphasize to people that if coming in the market was doing fine, nobody would be happier than me to stay out of it." The dirty little secret is, Mr. President, we had stimulated the banks. We stimulated Wall Street, and it didn't work. This is a question that I asked last Friday. Aren't we about out of time now? Don't we have enough evidence that these political solutions don't work? We bailed out General Motors. Their auditors are talking about bankruptcy. We bailed out Chrysler, ditto. We bailed out banks, they continue to go south, they continue to lose their share price. The New York Times has had to sell and buy back or done some maneuver with its own building today. Anything that we have touched, anything the US government's bailed out is not working: AIG, Citibank, Citigroup, whatever, any of these banks, the vast majority of them, not all, continue to have trouble.

The Obama Regime is winning friends and influencing people around the globe with startling alacrity these days. First, of course, was the messiah’s treatment of Gordon Brown, Prime Minister of what was formerly our staunchest international ally, Great Britain.

Let’s take an inside peek at how a "Community Organizer" projects United States diplomacy around the world.


BRITISH PRIME MINISTER GORDON BROWN: It is my honor to present the President with this pen holder made from the timbers of the anti-slave ship HMS Gannet, the original commission of the HMS Resolute, and this autographed 7-volume first edition set of Sir Martin Gilbert’s biography of Winston Churchill.

OBAMA: Hey, wow, that’s like, um, pretty cool man. (ASIDE TO AIDE): Shit. We were supposed to bring gifts? Here’s a fifty outta my wallet. Run down the street and get him something, would you?

BROWN: I am pleased that you…

OBAMA: Hey, Gordy, sorry to slow things down a notch, but, um, the little missus, um, you know, my wife, um, Michelle, she wants you to take this thing back over there to that other country you come from. SHOVES BUST OF WINSTON CHURCHILL INTO BROWN’S ARMS.

BROWN: Mr. President, what is the meaning of…

OBAMA: Michelle says, um, she don’t want no statues of no fat dead honkies around here. (ELBOWS BROWN) If mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy. Yeah, I hear you’re wife’s kinda bitchy, too, so I knew you’d, um, understand. You know what I mean, hunh?

BROWN: Really, Mr. President, I feel I must protest…

OBAMA: Say, who was this ‘Churchill’ fellow, anyway. I mean, um, I know he’s, ah, British obviously. Did he do something real famous over there, or what?

BROWN: Oh, I say! You can’t be serious…

OBAMA: (AIDE RUSHES UP, HANDS HIM A PLASTIC BAG) Ah, yes, president or king or minister, or whatever you are, um, here are some tokens of, um, esteem from the American people to, um, show our international friendship. (RUMMAGES IN BAG) Ah, yes, here’s a lovely 7-11 automobile air freshener shaped like a pine tree, and, um, let’s see, ah scratch-off lottery ticket and, oh, this Lincoln Memorial Pez dispenser and, um, of course, your used DVD of Point Break. Hey, how ‘bout that, am I a diplomat or what?

BROWN: You are a cretin and a barbarian.

OBAMA: Thank you, thank you very much.


HILLARY CLINTON: I present you with this cheesy plastic button so that we may “reset” the relationship between the United States and Russia. Since Bush dicked it all up.


CLINTON: Don’tcha get it? See the top. It has that Russian word that means “Do-Over”.

LAVROV: Well, that’s not exactly…

CLINTON: What? Did we get it right? It doesn’t say “Do-Over”?

LAVROV: No, it translates as “Lick my scrotum”.



PRESIDENT MAHMOUD AHMADINEJAD: Ha-Ha! What a buffoon! Full speed ahead on the nuclear missile programs!


PROPPED-UP CORPSE OF DEAR LEADER KIM JONG-IL: Hee-hee! What an idiot. Full speed ahead on the nuclear missile programs!


PREMIER WEN JIABAO: Bwahahahaha! We don’t even need missiles anymore! The Americans just signed for a 5 trillion dollar loan using “Everything west of the Mississippi” as collateral.


HAMMAS: Whooo-hooo! You know how many friggin' rockets we can buy with $900,000,000?!?!?


PRIME MINISTER BENJAMIN NETANYAHU: We would like to ask all Israelis to grab their gas masks, report to the bomb shelters, and bend over and grab their ankles. I hope to see you all again in four years. Thank you.

“Whenever I read Time or Newsweek or such magazines, I wash my hands afterward. But how to wash off the small but odious stain such reading leaves on the mind?”
Edward Abbey

I personally gave up on the liberal rags masquerading as America’s “news” magazines almost two decades ago, but during a recent visit to a book store I happened to glance over at the magazine rack and see the above lovely Newsweak cover. I thought it was a joke at first, but then had to check it out when I saw it really was legit.

With a churning stomach, I read through the article, another offensive, asinine, misbegotten, delusion liberal pipe dream, as one would expect from such a magazine. Radical Islamists exist, so we must just play nice with and make room for them. If we're nice to them, surely they will be nice to us. To me, this smacks of the clever policies Neville Chamberlain used in 1939 and the French used again in 1940 to crush the Nazi menace.

Sure, the author admits, occasionally some misguided Muslim fanatics may persecute, stone, mutilate, crucify, burn or blow up a few folks now and then. But hey, it's nothing personal, and no big deal. Unless you happen to be the one getting stoned, dismembered, blown up, etc.

According to the article, FIVE YEARS after the State Department and The Weekly Standard reported Muslim extremists running loose in the streets of Nigeria inflicting brutal Saria Law on their neighbors, the New York Times alertly sent a reporter to check it out. No doubt, this reporter stayed in a standard Nigerian hovel and spent her time wandering freely about the country talking to the man in the street without any government interference.

After this in-depth investigation, the NYT Bimbette proudly announced all was well, the Newsweak buffoon concluding the report as something along the lines of: “Like, sure, like maybe they are still stoning people to death in the streets or hacking off appendages or mutilating genitalia, but not all that often. Besides, in many cases Sharia Law punishments have been reduced to mere public floggings on appeal. No big deal."

The best way to buy the world a Coke and make it sing in three-part harmony, according to Newsweak, is to talk nice about the Islamic extremists who wish to kill us. We should: "use more 'nuanced, noncombative rhetoric' that avoids sweeping declarations like 'war on terror', 'global insurgency,' even 'the Muslim world.'"

Well, if we’re even going to surrender in the war of words, we might as well take a look at the words of the Muslim holy book, the Koran, the guiding light of the Religion of Peace, to see what our loving neighbors have in store for us infidels. This may come as a shock to many in sheepleland, but, as Rush likes to say, "Words Mean Things".

For instance, Qur'an 5:51 urges everyone to just get along when it says: "Believers, take not Jews or Christians for friends."

That's benign enough to start, but it goes above and beyond that. Qur'an 9:5: "Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, torture them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war."

Ishaq 3:15
"Driving before us infidels until we subdue them with a halter above their noses and a branding iron. We will drive them to the ends of the earth. We will pursue them on horse and on foot. We will never deviate from fighting in our cause. Any people that disobey Muhammad will pay for it. If you do not surrender to Islam, then you will live to regret it. You will be shamed in Hell, forced to wear a garment of molten pitch forever!"

Actually, we could go on like that for days. We can also find where the motivation to issue fatwas to kill writers like Salman Rushdie and Taslima Nasreen originated. The prophet Muhammed himself didn't like for word to get out about Islam or himself. And for good reason.

According to Prophet of Doom: "The five oldest and most trusted Islamic sources don't portray Muhammad as a great and godly man. They reveal that he was a thief, a liar, an assassin, a pedophile, a womanizer, a rapist, a mass murderer, a pirate, a warmonger, and a scheming and ruthless politician. It's hardly the character profile of a religious leader. Gandhi he was not."

Lacking any Danish cartoonists to kill back when the Koran was written, this is how the faithful followers of the Religion of Peace dealt with a Jewish poet who dared question the prophet during his time on earth: Ishaq: 368: "We carried his head back to Muhammad during the night, saluted the Prophet as he stood praying, and cast Ashraf's head before his feet. The Prophet praised Allah that the poet had been slain, and complimented us on the good work we had done in Allah's Cause. Our attack upon Allah's enemy cast terror among the Jews, and there was no Jew in Medina who did not fear for his life."

Since words do indeed mean things, I won't leave you with the ramblings of Newsweak liberal hacks or deceased mad prophets. Instead, let's share a few words of wisdom from a very cagey old boy by the name of Winston Churchill.
"There is no greater mistake than to suppose that platitudes, smooth words, and timid policies offer a path to safety."
"An appeaser is one who feeds the crocodile hoping it will eat him last."
I wonder what Newsweak will taste like with a little Heitz 57 a few years down the road?

Can the Big O pick 'em or what? We have yet another tax cheat, Ron Kirk, up for U.S. Trade Representative. This clown owes around $10,000 in back taxes. Now that he got caught with his fingers in the cookie jar, he gallantly says he is willing to pay the money back. Once again, where are the fines, interest and penalties you or I would pay for such "forgetfulness"? I guess the motto "Yes We Can!" becomes "No We Won't!" when it comes to paying taxes.

Perhaps Barry S really can reduce the deficit. If every one of his crooked associates in his "Hope and Change" den of thieves administration actually pays all the taxes they owe, it could be a windfall to the nation.

How far can you trust a guy as president when "He keeps company with evildoers; he associates with wicked men."? This is starting to make Bush's "scandalous" associates look like the Mayberry church choir.

Iowa Guard ends urban war exercise amid outcry

Excerpted from a article by WILLIAM PETROSKI:

"The Iowa Army National Guard has dropped plans for urban warfare training in the western Iowa town of Arcadia after being deluged by nearly 100 e-mails and phone calls from gun-rights advocates nationwide.

"The four-day event in April would have involved between 90 and 100 combat troops arriving in the Carroll County community in a convoy with a Blackhawk military helicopter flying overhead.

"Troops would have gone door to door, asking the town's 443 residents about a suspected arms dealer and conducting searches of homes if property owners volunteered in advance to cooperate.

"There was no opposition to the Guard's plans from city leaders. But gun-rights advocates were outraged, and news about the exercise became a hot topic nationally on radio talk shows and the Internet."

Ben says:

First, they had to know that having the Guardsmen search for an "arms dealer" was going to set off us gun nuts. The only thing else they could have done to rile folks up more is to practice loading kids into railcars.

Second, the Guard already spent God-knows-how-much building their own MOUT (urban warfare) training site at Camp Dodge (near Des Moines).

I doubt if there was any malicious intent on the part of the Guard and I've got no problem with our boys getting the best training we can give them, but this episode goes to show that the government has lost the trust of the people. That, in and of itself, makes me glad. The government doesn't deserve our trust.

Just a quick link to another renegade Iowegian ex pig farmer type, and my all-time favorite entertainment blog. Dave Burge is a genius (in that lovable mad scientist kind of way) who whips out the type of wicked, twisted, knife-like satire that makes me spew coffee all over my keyboard and occasionally wet myself. At the same time, his humor tends to wing completely unnoticed right over the heads of the liberal sheeple he's lampooning.

THIS has to be my all-time favorite Iowahawk rant. In fact, I think I actually had one of those profs in college!

He's even making "movies" these days. In a perfect world, he would be getting paid handsomely for this stuff. Enough for beer and chips both. At any rate, check him out regularly and enjoy him now while you can.

We'll miss him when we're sent to the camps under the "Fairness Doctrine". Oh, Dave will still be blogging away safe and sound when we're there. The likes of Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and about 69,456,897 other intellectually-impaired, morally-challenged, and labor-adverse Americans won't get the joke, or even realize there is one.

If I sound jealous, maybe it's because I am.
