If Silent Night offends you, then that is a YOU problem

I am so tired of these weasel Progressive’s, and equally tired of people who try to appease them

You can’t take Jesus out of “Silent Night,” you pathetic secular public school demons.

Regressive leftists at work.

Gateway Pundit has it, “Long Island School Removes Words From Silent Night – Too Offensive (Video).” (Via Memeorandum.)

Funny how the same folks screeching about tolerance possess not the first shred of it themselves.

 

Charles Johnson makes the full transition from somebody to degenerate asshole

I do not know Jim Hoft, of Gateway Pundit, but, I have always been a fan of his passion and his work, so now that he is having his health insurance cancelled, Thanks to Obamacare. I feel for him, especially since his recent health issues.

The Blaze reported:

Well-known conservative blogger Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit suffered terrifying health issues roughly three months ago.

“I became very sick with what I thought was a cold,” he wrote in a candid post earlier this week. “After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee.”

Hoft appeared on the Glenn Beck Program Friday with guest host Dana Loesch, explaining how he has now become one of the millions (so far) to lose their health insurance in the aftermath of the Affordable Care Act.

“I get this notification that I’m going to lose my insurance,” he said. “This insurance that I bought, that I purchased, and I was paying a good premium, (and) covered most everything.”

Hoft, who is still in a wheelchair, said he has a number of “major surgeries” in the near future and was “very pleased” with his insurance of choice.

“So to get this news on top of my recovery, on top of trying to make a living, has been obviously a very difficult thing to take on at this time,” he said, the emotion clear in his voice.

Hoft has written about Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius’ assertion that people who have lost their insurance are “thrilled” with the options they have available to them, and on Friday he repeated his message that she can “go to hell” because that is “absolutely not true.”

Ah the wonders of Socialism, taking from those that have insurance, and are happy with it, in the name of helping those that cannot afford insurance attain insurance. Does that make sense to anyone, on any level? Now Jim has to put up with hateful attacks like this one

Leftists don’t like it when you speak out against their heartless, failed socialism.

This came in the email from Dan Brown in Bluefield, WV
“Pundit dies slowly and in great pain- 200 million Americans celebrate”

Then there is Charles Johnson, who apparently takes joy in deriding a sick man who has lost had his health insurance taken away. RS McCain alerts us to the latest from miscreant Charles Johnson

Jim Hoft is one of millions who are losing their insurance because of ObamaCare’s centralized regulatory scheme. By substituting government mandates for the risk-based business decisions of insurers, ObamaCare effectively abolishes certain insurance plans and in other cases — including Jim Hoft’s — drives insurers out of certain markets.

These problems were entirely predictable and were, in fact, predicted by opponents of ObamaCare, but the media never questioned Obama’s repeated promise, “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan” — nowrecognized as The Lie of the Year.

For some reason I’ve never understood, Jim Hoft has always been hated by Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs, one of whose ignorant minions posted this despicable hatefulness:

LGF_Jim_Hoft

This is as dishonest as it is cruel — “thanks to ObamaCare,” my ass!

What these deluded fools would have you believe, basically, is that there was no such thing as “decent” health care in America until Obama and Democrats invented it. According to these idiots, cancellations caused by ObamaCare are actually good news, because hey, the government will force other companies to issue you a policy. But this isn’t the same as, “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan,” is it?

No, it’s not. As Jim says, he had “excellent” insurance that gave him access to the best treatment. Jim paid extra for that plan, because it was the plan he wanted, and the regulatory mandates of ObamaCare have nowtaken Jim Hoft’s plan away from him.

What a lousy excuse for a human being Charles Johnson is. Stomping on someone who is sick, and who is a victim of the stupidity of the central planners who are behind ObamaCare. Like I said, I do not know Jim, but if Charles Johnson had said that in front of me, well, it would have taken all my restraint not to deck the goofy weasel bastard!

UPDATE! Obviously I should note that Charles Johnson did not make that attack on Hoft. Yet I see that CJ allows this post to stand? So again, My apologies to Charles Johnson, HE did NOT make that comment, but he has allowed it to stay on his sight. Yes, I should have checked the post myself, so my mistake is no one’s fault but mine. But, had anyone posted such a nasty post on this blog, not only would that post be gone, but so would their posting privileges.

A Statists appetite for tyranny is never sated!

Case in point? Diane Feinstein, who would silence “just bloggers” by stripping away their right to free speech. How? By allowing the government to define “journalist” so as to restrict freedom of speech AND the press as that government sees fit. Gateway Pundit has the details

Dianne Feinstein wants to regulate who can and cannot be a reporter.  The Internet’s largest disseminator of news, Matt Drudge, called her a “Fascist”.

Yesterday, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted for a “Reporter Shield Bill” which would determine who is and who isn’t a journalist.

Senator Feinstein proposed language that she said,”effectively sets up a test for establishing bona fide credentials that make one a legitimate journalist.”  Legitimate journalists will be protected.  Non-legitimate journalists, like blogs, will not.

When the First Amendment was written, there were no credentials for journalists, no journalism schools, no “professional” journalists. The press was a bunch of guys with printing presses. Benjamin Franklin was one, and he used his to great effect in the cause of freedom. Was he a “legitimate journalist”? Not by Senator Feinstein’s definition. If anything, Benjamin Franklin was more like a blogger than like Feinstein’s “legitimate journalist.”

As usual, the Founders saw despots like Feinstein coming and placed constraints on them in the Bill of Rights

As Samuel Adams said in 1768, “There is nothing so fretting and vexatious, nothing so justly terrible to tyrants, and their tools and abettors, as a free press.”

Absolutely, and evil people like Feinstein, and yes, I see people who seek to destroy our liberties as evil, would love to be able to control the media. Control the media you control the message, blogs make that impossible, so they must be silenced so that tyrants like Feinstein, Schumer, and Durbin gain more power.

 

Great news, fellow blogger Jim Hoft improving

Ed and I are very happy to hear this update!

Great news!!  Jim has just graduated from the ICU to a regular hospital room.  He has made significant progress and is stable and feeling better.  And he’s fun to talk to on the phone again!

I will work on getting a new picture of Jim to share.  In the meantime, please continue offering your prayers.  They are working.  Thank you!

Outstanding! Keep getting better Jim!

 

Jihadist Swine AKA Ft. Hood shooter found guilty on all counts

Via Gateway Pundit. I have just one question. Can we put  a bullet in this bastards head now?

AP reports: Army Maj. Nidal Hasan was convicted Friday in the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood, a shocking assault against American troops at home by one of their own who said he opened fire on fellow soldiers to protect Muslim insurgents abroad.

The Army psychiatrist acknowledged carrying out the attack in a crowded waiting room where unarmed troops were making final preparations to deploy to Afghanistan and Iraq. Thirteen people were killed and more than 30 wounded.

Because Hasan never denied his actions, the court-martial was always less about a conviction than it was about ensuring he received the death penalty. From the beginning of the case, the federal government has sought to execute Hasan, believing that any sentence short of a lethal injection would deprive the military and the families of the dead of the justice they have sought for nearly four years.

A jury of 13 high-ranking military officers reached a unanimous guilty verdict in about seven hours. In the next phase of the trial, they must all agree to give Hasan the death penalty before he can be sent to the military’s death row, which has just five other prisoners. If they do not agree, the 42-year-old could spend the rest of his life in prison.

Four years? It took four years to convict this vile, despicable coward?

 

IRS scandal gets worser and worser

Gateway Pundit has a very damning bit of info on what Tea Party groups were asked by the IRS

The Obama IRS demanded that several Tea Party groups provide back-end access to their websites.

And, from reliable sources: This happened to several Tea Party groups!

The source has this in writing. It states they wanted access to everything the members had access to, which would be chats, email, contact information, etc. The group raised less than $600. She was targeted as early as October 2010.

Central Texas 912 President, Maria Acosta joined Kristina Ribali from FreedomWorks to discuss being singled out by the Feds.

The IRS asked for back-end access to the group’s website.
And this is a tax question?

North Korean Gulags exposed by Google Maps

Gateway Pundit has the story

Thanks to bloggers and the internet, the North Korean regime’s secret prison camps are being exposed.

The Telegraph reported:

Human rights activists are turning to Google Earth to identify the vast network of prison camps that dot the North Korean countryside and hold as many as 200,000 people deemed hostile to the regime.

Rights groups are pushing the United Nations high commissioner for human rights to open an international investigation into Pyongyang’s “deplorable” record on its citizens’ rights, including a system of political prisons that has operated for more than 50 years.

Pyongyang insists that the camps do not exist and are merely foreign propaganda, but the advent of high-resolution, free images from outer space has disproved that claim.

On January 18, the North Korean Economy Watch website announced that a new camp had been identified alongside an existing detention facility in Kaechon, South Pyongan Province.

Using newly provided Google Earth images, analyst Curtis Melvin was able to conclude that the new camp sits alongside Camp 14 and has a perimeter fence that stretches nearly 13 miles.

One Free Korea has more on the prison camps.

It has only taken the UN ten years to suspect “crimes against humanity” in North Korean prison camp.

Oh yes, the UN, or Useless Nations as I call that cesspool of ineptitude and corruption, they could not find their asses with both hands!
