Here we go folks. Every time a race-baiter on the Left has an opportunity to be consistent and call down a Liberal who utters racist remarks, they instead make excuses. The latest example? Earl Ofari Hutchinson. Hutchinson defends Rangel calling the Tea Party racists and White Crackers
Rangel has history on his side to back up his broadside. During the 1960s, GOP ultra conservatives, libertarian groups, and the far right from the John Birch Society to the Young Americans for Freedom waged a prolonged and bitter fight against liberal Democrats and moderate Republicans to block civil rights legislation. It was always the same argument. Those civil rights and voting rights bills encroached on state’s rights, usurped the Constitution, and were a gross impediment to personal and commercial freedom.
Of course, one doesn’t have to go back to the 1960s to make the case that Rangel inelegantly made that many of those who back the Tea Party today would have opposed civil rights back in the day. There are a few notable Supreme Court judges that used virtually the same arguments as civil rights foes of the past to gut the Voting Rights Act, and any other civil rights strengthening measure that has been on the court docket. There are legions of Tea Party affiliated GOP House representatives that cloak themselves in their read of the Constitution and libertarianism to relentlessly flail Obama and the Democrats for spending on domestic programs that aid minorities and the poor. Ron Paul and son Rand are the two top guns for the GOP’s right-libertarian wing, and they have filled up a small directory with putdowns of past and present civil rights initiatives.
Of course, most people who benefit from programs like food stamps are White. And, I could point out that Conservatives and Libertarians criticize the WASTE and CORRUPTION in those programs, and no necessarily the programs intentions. But Hutchinson doe snot want facts
Then there’s the Tea Party’s well-documented silence when it comes to denouncing the overt bigots within the ranks of its various factions. This bunch unleashed a proliferation of Obama “Joker” posters — showing him as Batman’s ultimate nemesis — crude, racist scrawls on signs and banners, Confederate flags and Texas Lone Star flags, and racist digs at the president and first lady Michelle Obama for a time.
OK here we go. The Tea Party has been silent on the racist acts and remarks of Tea Party members because those events have largely been invented by Leftists like Hutchinson. In other words that “overt” racism never happened, and that IS well-documented, but, again, do not confuse Hutchinson with facts.
As to the “Joker” posters, I would say so? How are they racist? In fact they are not, and Hutchinson, in a moment of honesty, if he ever has one would admit that. Hutchinson also mentions the “crude, racist scrawls on signs and banners” at Tea Party rallies. Again, there is no there there. Mr. Hutchinson can continue making the baseless allegation all he wants, but he will still be lying. As to the presence of “Confederate flags and Texas Lone Star flags, and racist digs at the president and first lady Michelle Obama for a time.” I will ask when the State Flag of Texas became racist? When was that exactly Mr. Hutchinson? The racist digs at the FLOTUS and the President? Care to cite specific genuine examples Mr. Hutchinson? If so bring them, if not please shut the Hell up.
Finally, the obligatory reference to the Confederate Flag that every Liberal makes as proof of racism. Mr. Hutchinson, you really ought to read a bit of history, your blatant ignorance is an embarrassment. My ancestors, and many other Southern men, of all colors, yes ALL colors and religions, defined the Confederate Battleflag on the battle fields from 1861 to 1865, and racism is not a part of that definition.
Lastly, you can go read the rest of the bilge Hutchinson spews if you wish. He can scream and rant about racism all he wants, but if he REALLY wants to look at racism, and hatefulness, and ignorance, I suggest he stop looking at the Tea Party and start looking in his closest mirror!
As schools continue to grapple with the school lunch menu overhaul pushed by First Lady Michelle Obama, some are realizing their headache isn’t just from a lack of food.
The program involves way too much green – and we’re not talking lettuce and brussel sprouts.
We mean the estimated $3.2 billion schools will have to find to implement the new federal regulations. Many schools are also losing money due the unpopular Obama menu.
“New school lunch regulations mean financial losses for Pittsfield Public Schools,” reported The Berkshire Eagle in Massachusetts.
The school district expects a program operating loss of more than $100,000 due to a required equipment upgrade, as well as fewer lunches and snacks being sold.
Congressman Todd Rokita, a member of the House Education and Workforce Committee, noted at a recent hearing, “Because the law requires students to take fruits and vegetables for lunch, even if they have no intention of eating them, schools are struggling with increased waste. After implementing the new standards a year early, one Florida school district estimated students threw out $75,000 worth of food.”
“At Dedham High School in Massachusetts, providing the required vegetables in 1500 meals each week costs the district about $111 a day – but administrators report many students just throw the fresh vegetables right into the trash,” his statement read.
A New York district experienced a 50 percent decline in the number of student purchasing hot lunch.
“This decline in participation made it more difficult for the school to afford to serve lunches and breakfasts that met the federal meal requirements. As a result, the district’s food operation went $59,000 in the red and local leaders ultimately decided to opt-out of the National School Lunch Program,” Rokita said.
The USDA estimates implementation of the new guidelines will cost $3.2 billion over five years. Given that it’s a government estimate – and if Obamacare is any guide – the cost for schools will likely be much higher.
But it makes Mooch feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
INDIANAPOLIS – The carnage shifted from the students’ lunch plates to school budgets after Michelle Obama’s lunch regulations were voluntarily implemented last year.
Officials in the Carmel Clay, Indiana school district told JConline.com they lost $300,000 last school year when many students rejected the menu changes and stopped purchasing school meals.
Amy Anderson, the food service director for the school district, told the newspaper, “I’m a registered dietitian. I used to feel that I was an educator and part of the education system. I currently feel like I’m a food cop.
“I don’t get credit for the 98 percent of our kids who are within normal weight range. I only get slammed for the 2 to 3 percent who aren’t.”
She said the changes may “drive her into retirement,” according to the paper.
Students in another central Indiana district were equally displeased.
“Kids eat with their eyes. When they saw that smaller portion, that freaked them out,” said Jennifer Rice, food service director of Lebanon Community School Corp., where the popular Salisbury steak shrunk, the paper reported.
First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” initiative is praising textbook publishers for “swapping out cupcakes for apples in math problems,” in a campaign to incorporate health information into the learning resources for kids.
“Today at the White House, we celebrated a group of educational publishers on their development of voluntary guidance to incorporate health information into textbooks and other learning materials,” Let’s Move! said in a blog post entitled, “Cookies 2 Carrots,” on Wednesday.
“Publishers are making simple changes, like swapping out cupcakes for apples in math problems,” the anti-obesity initiative noted. “They are also finding ways to include physical activity in lesson plans – discussing the history of little league baseball and using sports in word problems.”
Another step, towards eliminating certain words from public view. Statism rolls on, smashing one cupcake at a time
#AskFLOTUS Was Barack with you on 9/11/12 during #Benghazi…Asking for about 300 million or so people. Thanks.
Michelle Obama announced via her Twitter feed that she’d be taking questions this morning at 11:05 a.m. EST on her always-absurd “Let’s move” campaign.
Tomorrow at 11:05ET, I’ll answer some questions about @LetsMove & how we can improve the health of our kids. Join with #AskFLOTUS –mo
Ask, and ye shall receive. Since they are givers, happy warriors got the questions rolling early. Let’s move? Let’s move toward truth and accountability.
And so it began, kicking off with questions about Benghazi. Yes, once again Twitter users are doing the job that most in the media won’t do.
#AskFlotus what was it like giving an award 4 a movie potraying the rescue of 6 Americans knowing your husband wouldn’t save the #Benghazi 4
#askFLOTUS Is Barack ever jolted awake at night all sweaty thinking about the 4 Americans he left behind to die in Benghazi?
End of the Republic
#AskFLOTUS #benghazigate #Benghazi Did your husband sleep well on 9/11/12 knowing our men were fighting for their lives?
End of the Republic
#AskFLOTUS Quick!! Name anyone killed at #Benghazi considering today is the 6month anniversary. #benghazigate
Does she even remember that it is the six month anniversary? Maybe it slipped her mind; she’s far too busy using members of the military as props while canoodling with her Hollywood buddies.
#AskFLOTUS Would you say your husband “acted stupidly” while watching Americans die in Benghazi and not authorizing to send help?
#AskFLOTUS Do you care at all that your husband left 4 Americans to be murdered in #Benghazi while he went to sleep then flew to Vegas?
The questions continue, hitting on a myriad of topics.
#AskFLOTUS were you born with a sense of entitlement or did you receive it as a high school graduation gift?
#AskFLOTUS Tell us more about why you admire Jew hating, 9/11 loving, Samira Ibrahim
#AskFLOTUS Which of your 3 kids is the hardest to control? Sasha, Malia or Joe?
#AskFLOTUS are you and axlerod giving personal lessons on patient dumping to hospitals so they stay in business after 1/1/2014?
#AskFLOTUS will the cost of all your vacations this year be enough to pay for the WH tours to be restarted?
#AskFLOTUS Love the bangs..Hey why are you telling people what to feed their kids?
#AskFLOTUS what makes you think that you are qualified to dictate MY CHILDREN’S diet, or anything else concerning them, than I am?
The Young Cons
#AskFLOTUS If you want to keep kids healthy why does your hubby support a medicine system that has proven to be catastrophic for patients?
#AskFLOTUS Isn’t there a better way to fight obesity than making people too poor to afford food?
Zing! It’s funny, yet sad, because it’s true.
#AskFlotus Do you even know who #ChrisKyle is?
#askFLOTUS White people, amirite?
Heh. Keep the questions coming, Twitter. Maybe, for the first time, she’ll be proud of Twitter. We certainly are.
Update: Ready to answer, Mrs. Obama?
Note: here’s several more challenging questions tweeted to Michelle O today.
“#AskFLOTUS Why are you trying to FORCE kids to eat healthy, last time I checked this isn’t a socialist country“
“#AskFLOTUS Do u think a prez who takes military action w/o consent of congress then leaves assets unprotected on 9/11 shd resign?“
“#AskFLOTUS How much is your celebrity-packed birthday party going to cost taxpayers?“
“#AskFLOTUS How old were you when you became a Marxist?“

“#AskFLOTUS Why did obama admin Leak info regarding Cyberattack on Iran? #treason“
“#AskFLOTUS maybe you should have your birthday party in Benghazi! Since we all know : What happens in #Benghazi stays in Benghazi“
“#AskFLOTUS Do you reimburse taxpayers for your personal vacations and entertainment like prior first ladies?“
“#AskFLOTUS Why is WH tours closed, yet Adele and Beyonce lined up for your WH birthday bash?“
John Kerry, who threw his fellow servicemen under the Vietnam bus, and threw medals away, and Michelle Obama, who was never proud of her country until her hubby ran for president are going to honor a Jihadi wannabe.
On Friday March 8, Michelle Obama will join John Kerry at a special ceremony at the State Department to present ten women the Secretary of State’s International Women of Courage Award. The award, says the press release, is given to “women around the globe who have shown exceptional courage and leadership in advocating for women’s rights and empowerment, often at great personal risk.”
Five of these awards are being given to women from Muslim-majority countries, underscoring the unique plight of women in those countries. The only problem is that one of the women to be recognized is an anti-Semite and supports the 9/11 attacks on the United States.
Samira Ibrahim, as the State Department’s profile describes her, “was among seven women subjected by the Egyptian military to forced virginity tests in March 2011.” The press release further notes that Samira “was arrested while in high school for writing a paper that criticized Arab leaders’ insincere support to the Palestinian cause.” Apparently, the State Department is unaware of her other convictions.
On Twitter, Ibrahim is quite blunt regarding her views. On July 18 of last year, after five Israeli tourists and a Bulgarian bus driver were killed a suicide bombing attack, Ibrahim jubilantly tweeted: “An explosion on a bus carrying Israelis in Burgas airport in Bulgaria on the Black Sea. Today is a very sweet day with a lot of very sweet news.”
And I am not supposed to question their love of America?
Donald Douglas also links Daniel Greenfield, who writes about this deplorable act
Ibrahim frequently uses Twitter to air her anti-Semitic views. Last August 4, commenting on demonstrations in Saudi Arabia, she described the ruling Al Saud family as “dirtier than the Jews.” Seventeen days later she tweeted in reference to Adolf Hitler: “I have discovered with the passage of days, that no act contrary to morality, no crime against society, takes place, except with the Jews having a hand in it. Hitler.”
Well she quotes Hitler in support of genocide. Clearly this deserves a State Department award.
Ibrahim holds other repellent views as well. As a mob was attacking the United States embassy in Cairo on the eleventh anniversary of 9/11, pulling down the American flag and raising the flag of Al Qaeda, Ibrahim wrote on twitter: “Today is the anniversary of 9/11. May every year come with America burning.” Possibly fearing the consequences of her tweet, she deleted it a couple of hours later, but not before a screen shot was saved by an Egyptian activist.
In other news, Michelle Obama has never been prouder of her country than this moment.
So, once again, we are forced to ask. Is Team Obama this inept? Or, are they aware of this swine’s hatred for Jews and Christians? Neither answer gives anyone any confidence in the moral compass of Team Obama.
Yep, Michelle Malkin dared to make a video mocking Democrats, the media, and Michelle Obama. Of course, the Left now has the vapors!
Personally, I thought the Bob Menendez Dance was the best one. And Michelle Malkin is definitely a lot easier on the eyes, love that wig, than the FLOTUS!
The Bromance continues between the Governor of Joisey, and President Obama, and Chris Wysocki is not pleased with Christie sitting next to the National dietician
snagging the coveted seat next to Michelle Obama at this weekend’s Governor’s Ball.
Gov. Chris Christie and President Obama have been in “an extended hugfest” since their bipartisan showing during Hurricane Sandy, reports The Atlantic Wire.
Perhaps that’s the reason Christie scored a coveted seat to the right of Michelle Obama at the Governor’s Ball on Sunday night?
Gag me with a spoon.
Exit question, how much advice will Michelle Obama give Christie about eating his vegetables?
Good people can debate what to do about the 11 plus million illegals in this nation. But, as with most other issues, Liberals do not want to debate, they want their way, and they want to shove it in our faces. Five Democrats, including Michelle Obama, are bringing illegal aliens to the SOTU tonight. That shows how serious they are about enforcing any immigration law. Democrats see one thing when they look at illegal immigration. They see a voting block that they feel will cement their future electoral success. Who cares about laws, or sovereignty, or national security when there are voters to be brought in to keep Democrats in control?
A number of Democrats, including First Lady Michelle Obama, are bringing illegal immigrants as guests to the State of the Union on Tuesday.
But a spokeswoman with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency declined to comment to The Daily Caller on Tuesday about whether the agency approves of this occurring at the Capitol, where Obama is set to give his annual address on Tuesday night.
“I don’t have any comment for you on this,” Gillian Christensen, a spokeswoman with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said after TheDC inquired whether the agency was aware of this and whether it was possible the guests could be arrested.
At least five Democrats are bringing illegal immigrants to the State of the Union, according to reports.

Good grief he is a moron, absolutely no grasp of history, economics, or reality. I like the last quote from him. He says we do not need jobs, we need housing and food. Did it ever dawn on him that people with jobs can buy housing, and food? Or does he expect those things to come from government? Or from thin air?
Maybe he got such nonsense in his head from reading Noam Chomsky? Donald Douglas has a link to an interview with Benjamin Kerstein, who’s written a book on Chomsky who I give a lifetime Marxist Moron Award to
From Michael Totten, at World Policy Journal, “Noam Chomsky: The Last Totalitarian.”
It’s an interview with Benjamin Kerstein, who’s written a book on Chomsky. And this is gold:
Michael Totten: Can you boil down your case against him into a couple of sentences or paragraphs?
Benjamin Kerstein: There are a couple of main points that should be made. First, Chomsky is an absolutely shameless liar. A master of the argument in bad faith. He will say anything in order to get people to believe him. Even worse, he will say anything in order to shut people up who disagree with him. And I’m not necessarily talking about his public critics. If you’ve ever seen how he acts with ordinary students who question what he says, it’s quite horrifying. He simply abuses them in a manner I can only describe as sadistic. That is, he clearly enjoys doing it. I don’t think anyone ought to be allowed to get away with that kind of behavior.
Second, Chomsky is immensely important to the radical left. When it comes to American foreign policy he isn’t just influential, he’s basically all they have. Almost any argument made about foreign affairs by the radical left can be traced back to him. That wasn’t the case when he started out back in the late ’60s, but it is now.
Third, he is essentially the last totalitarian. Despite his claims otherwise, he’s more or less the last survivor of a group of intellectuals who thought systemic political violence and totalitarian control were essentially good things. He babbles about human rights all the time, but when you look at the regimes and groups he’s supported, it’s a very bloody list indeed.
Communism and fascism are obviously dead as the proverbial doornail, but I doubt the totalitarian temptation will ever go away. The desire for unity and a kind of beautiful tyranny seems to spring from somewhere deep in the human psyche.
Fourth—and this may be most important—he makes people stupid. In this sense, he’s more like a cult leader or a New Age guru than an intellectual. He allows people to be comfortable with their prejudices and their hatreds, and he undercuts their ability to think in a critical manner. To an extent, this has to do with his use of emotional and moral blackmail. Since he portrays everyone who disagrees with him as evil, if you do agree with him you must be on the side of good and right. This is essentially a kind of secular puritanism, and it’s very appealing to many people, for obvious reasons, I think. We all want to think well of ourselves, whether we deserve it or not…
Well, that last part surely sounds like the young man in the video doesn’t it? That dopey kid is entirely comfortable with hating the “rich” and in demonizing them as well. He also seems comfortable in supporting governments like Somalia has. And certainly it would seem the young man has totally failed any attempt at critical thinking. He sounds like someone who has been brain washed and indoctrinated by the far Left. And we all know by now that thinking is the last thing the Left wishes anyone to do.
One more note about Chomsky. As Kerstein notes, Chomsky is a shameless liar, and, we are all aware of how many lies the Left spews every day. It is all part of their all means are justified by the ends philosophy. Consider this “story” the Left is telling about raaaaacism at the RNC via Gateway Pundit
The lib media claims two Republican delegates threw nuts at an African-American CNN camerawoman and called her names. So far there is no video, audio, or pictures even though the victim was running a camera. And far left crank David Shuster is the one who first reported the incident.
I call BS.
Yahoo is spreading this tall tale.
Two people were ejected from the Republican National Convention when they threw nuts at a black CNN camera woman and said “this is how we feed animals,” the network said Wednesday.
“CNN can confirm there was an incident directed at an employee inside the Tampa Bay Times Forum” on Tuesday, the opening day of a gala at which former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney will accept his party’s nomination to challenge President Barack Obama in November’s election.
“CNN worked with convention officials to address this matter and will have no further comment.”
Several witnesses observed the exchange, CNN reported, and convention security personnel immediately removed the two people from the forum.
The convention confirmed the incident in a statement late Tuesday.
“Two attendees tonight exhibited deplorable behavior. Their conduct was inexcusable and unacceptable. This kind of behavior will not be tolerated,” organizers said.
The incident is surely not what Republicans wanted 10 weeks out from the election. Romney has struggled to attract African American voters as well as Hispanics, and he is also on the wrong side of the gender gap, with polls consistently showing women voters preferring Obama to Romney.
Current TV journalist and talk radio host David Shuster first tweeted about the incident Tuesday night.
I will bet this either never happened, or was greatly exaggerated, or more likely, if it did happen, it was perpetrated by plants. No, not actual plants, but by Leftists who wanted to create a racial incident at the RNC that they could use to paint the GOP as racist. The Left is very adept at that type of thing. Besides, if this had gone down as described, it would have been caught on tape and would be the subject of media coverage!
Even more of the Left’s outrageous lies, and smears ala Chomsky at Camp of the Saints
…Jack Hitt at Harpers rolls out a Republicans-are-Racist charge that involves ignoring all the relevant facts.
[A]s a Puerto Rican party functionary—Zoraida Fonalledas, the chairwoman of the Committee on Permanent Organization—took her turn at the main-stage lectern. As she began speaking in her accented English, some in the crowd started shouting “U.S.A.! U.S.A.!”
The chanting carried on for nearly a minute while most of the other delegates and the media stood by in stunned silence. The Puerto Rican correspondent turned to me and asked, “Is this happening?” I said I honestly didn’t know what was happening—it was astonishing to see all the brittle work of narrative construction that is a modern political convention suddenly crack before our eyes. None of us could quite believe what we were seeing: A sea of twentysomething bowties and cowboy hats morphing into frat bros apparently shrieking over (or at) a Latina.
Hitt should have left it at “I honestly didn’t know what was happening.” And his editor should have read that line and decided not to publish the baseless insinuations.
Here’s what happened, Jack:
RNC Chairman Reince Preibus had called for a voice vote to approve the Credential Committee’s report. Ron Paul delegates objected, because the committee had refused to seat half of the Paul delegates. When the voice vote came, the “Noes” clearly were louder than the “Ayes.” (Ron Paul backers are pretty good at shouting.) Preibus ruled that the Ayes had won, and then he ignored many yells of “Point of Order.”
The Paulites began chanting “Point of Order,” trying to stop the proceedings so they could have a roll-call vote or even a debate. They also chanted “Seat Maine Now,” in this period.
Some Romney backers from delegations near Maine responded – for better or worse – by chanting “U.S.A.! U.S.A.!” over the Paulites’ chants.
Preibus, meanwhile, was just trying to steamroll ahead, and so he brought on Puerto Rican Republican Zoraida Fonalledas, who tried to speak over the parliamentary objections of the Paulites – and thus over the “U.S.A.!” chants of the Romney backers.
From this brouhaha, Harpers’ Jack Hitt concludes it was probably a bunch of racist Republicans shouting U.S.A. at a woman with a Hispanic accent. Seven hours later Hitt added a footnote citing BuzzFeed’s Zeke Miller explaining what actually happened.
Miller’s reporting so thoroughly debunks what Hitt wrote that I would have expected Hitt to retract it. But when it comes to charging Republicans with racism, the standards are different, I guess.
You guess right.
From Twitchy, we learn [vile vulgarity warning]:
Tuesday night after rising GOP star Mia Love brought down the house with her inspiring convention speech, the stomach-turning Left labeled the black conservative a “token” and an “Aunt Tom.”
Meanwhile, revoltingly racist, woman-hating Wikipedia vandals were hard at work updating her entry with disgusting slurs like “House Nigger” and “dirty, worthless whore.” The page called her a “total sell-out to the Right Wing Hate machine and the greedy bigots who control the GOP.”
Remember one thing about the Left my friends. It is the MOST important thing TO understand about them. They are not governed by any normal moral compass, so they can justify any action to themselves. The only “morality” they see is the ultimate destruction of individual liberty, and the implementation on their Utopian Collectivist Society.
Stay classy, Michelle.
Michelle Obama is identified as a “Guest Editor” on all of the website’s pages, including several titled “Love & Sex.” Video clips of iVillage interviews with Mrs. Obama appear on some of those sexually-oriented pages, although the first lady herself does not discuss sex.
One of iVillage’s “Love & Sex” pages includes includes advice on sex positions, complete with illustrations and detailed explanations on “how to do it” and “why you’ll love it.” A separate quiz allows visitors to find out “What Kind of Lover Are You?”
A second “Love and Sex” tabincludes “Sex Tips From the Bunny Ranch Girls” (the Bunny Ranch is a legal brothel in Nevada) and a quiz where you can “Test Your Sex Terms Knowledge.”
The website includes articles on how an iPhone “can revolutionize your sex moves,” and there’s also a guide on “the top 10 secret places to hook up” at Disney World –“and how much time you’d have before you risk getting caught.”
We can all see Laura Bush doing this, right?
Not so much.
Chris Wysocki sympathizes kids, he feels your pain, and your YUCK!
Michelle Obama controls your child’s school lunch. Right down to the number of grapes in the mandatory ½ cup of fruit. In case you hadn’t heard, her federal school lunch standards take effect in September.
Beginning in September, the new lunch standards, introduced in January by First Lady Michelle Obama under the Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act, will be implemented. The standards were created to help fight childhood obesity throughout the nation.
This involves the inclusion of fruits, vegetables, whole grain-rich foods, low-calorie foods and foods with reduced amounts of saturated and trans-fats and sodium in students’ diets.
Specifically, 50 percent of grains served beginning July 1, 2012, must be whole grain-rich, with the percentage planned to increase to 100 percent within two years. A minimum of 1/2 cup of fruits and vegetables must be taken by students daily and over the next 10 years, total sodium should be reduced by 50 percent in school meals.
Freedom? Liberty? Choice? Not in Obamaville. Big Brother says, all your children are belong to us. Kids will eat what Michelle Obama tells them to eat, and they’ll like it.
And kids, more good news for your parents too! Mr. Obama, along with his eco-nutty friends, are making sure fuel, is sky-freaking high!
Gasoline prices hit a record high yesterday. Good thing that evil oil man Bush isn’t in the White House or the media would be screaming bloody murder.
Except if an oil man was in the White House we’d be increasing domestic energy production to compensate. Instead we have Obama and the econuts conspiring to keep our petrodollars flowing to OPEC and the Saudi kleptocrats. They’ll do anything to delay new drilling and pipeline projects.
Despite nearly four years of environmental study and two separate permit applications, TransCanada has been unable to lay a single foot of pipe for the Keystone XL project in the United States. The delay in this project has spanned the publication of a Draft Environmental Impact Statement, a Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement, a Final Environmental Impact Statement, no fewer than five national comment periods and the input of hundreds of thousands of Americans.
You’d think we’d be at the end of the process, right? Oh Hell No! Obama is starting the entire permitting process over from Square One.
Now, as the State Department closes the latest of these public comment periods — this one asking Americans what the scope of its newest environmental review of the project should be — we are about to start this entire process all over again. The delays and forced route changes that TransCanada has been forced to endure have added more than a billion dollars to the cost of the project, suspended tens of thousands of high paying jobs, delayed relief at the pump for millions of American drivers and prevented the project from pumping more than $20 billion into the U.S. economy.
Meanwhile up in Alaska the econuts are suing Royal Dutch Shell and the U.S. government to cancel new drilling permits issued for the Beaufort and Chukchi seas.
In a report released Monday, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) is urging the government to hold off on approving Royal Dutch Shell’s plans for Arctic drilling until more information can be gathered about the project’s environmental effects on the region.
And if your mom and dad are not down with a huge gas bill, tell them to wait until Obama’s war on coal drives their electricity bill through the roof!
We are sooo screwed if we do not un-elect this Neo-Marxist
Over at camp of the Saints, Bob Belvedere is just begging for accusations of SEXXXXXISM by mocking Amanda Marcotte and her apparent lack of a functioning brain.
Emerging from her bedroom dressed in her Hoodie-Footie pajamas, still clutching one of her several dozen stuffed animals and an empty quart of Ben & Jerry’s, bleary-eyed from watching all of Season III’s Sex And The City episodes in one sitting, Mzzz Marcotte apparently dragged herself to her Apple and fired off this Tweet:
It was desegregation that caused white America to believe that the government had stopped “protecting” them, and so they needed guns.
…okay…you can stop laughing now…come on, fellas….stop it…come on, I got some important stuff to tell you…stop it……….
Tip of the fedora to Smitty for braving the dank and dark corners of the Twitterverse and spotting that. He labels the statement ‘Breathtakingly Stupid’ and I cannot in any way disagree with his assessment.
It takes a lot to get the Admiral peeved, but, as you’ll see by reading his comments here, Manda managed to do it. A highlight:
Lord have mercy, Amanda: that is about the most jacked up, ahistorical, illogical pile of hooey I’ve heard since the last time #OccupyResoluteDesk opened his pie hole….
Two points. First, if Marcotte truly believes her own words she is beneath Janet Napolitano on the IQ scale, Napolitano placing slightly below a tree stump, and slightly higher than Jimmy Carter. Second, the image of Marcotte that Belvedere paints is freaking hilarious!
This also got me thinking about other stupid people, like Andrea Mitchell, or pretty much anyone else on MSNBS. The “news” network is current stuck on full-blown anti-Romney mode, and they are going through baseless, inane attacks like Michelle Obama through ugly clothes. Their current strategy seems to center on Romney’s use of the word “foreign”, which, it seems is a word that the gang at MSNBS does not know the definition of. Smitty, has the latest example featuring Mitchell, who seems to be suffering from a nerve condition that causes her to repeatedly place both her feet in her mouth
Clearly, Romney’s use of ‘foreign’ is going after ‘alien to traditional American thought’. And, yes, the Marxist underpinnings of Obama’s collectivist thinking are foreign, to put it as mildly as possible.
For safety reasons, I recommend Andrea Mitchell and Amanda Marcotte maintain a two-mile standoff, lest their combined intellectual suction trigger a singularity.
Stacy McCain also takes a shot at Marcotte, and why not, she is like a crash test dummy, with a lower IQ of course!
Popular conservative blogger Ace of Spades first enunciated The Marcotte Rule of Blogging:No public controversy is complete until Amanda Marcotte has made a complete fool of herself.
In case you don’t remember, Marcotte was one of two left-wing women whom John Edwards recruited in 2007 to boost his presidential campaign’s connection to the progressive blogosphere. Alas, this turned out to be a very short-term gig when it was discovered what manner of “political commentary” Marcotte and her comrade Mellissa McEwan had hitherto provided their readers, as eloquently summarized by Mary Katharine Ham: “Vote for Edwards, Godbag Christofascists!”
Marcotte and McEwan are both radical feminists of the most extreme variety, generally arguing that the Republican Party is a theocratic plot for the patriarchal oppression of womyn. McEwan remains rather obscure, but Marcotte is slightly more telegenic (which ain’t saying much) and therefore is considered acceptable to appear occasionally as a commentator on MSNBC, the network that promotes Ed Schultz and Al Sharpton as marquee TV talents. Marcotte is thus able to get freelance pieces published in such progressive venues as Salon and the Guardian, despite her repeated demonstrations that she is a blithering idiot prone to counterfactual assertions and astonishing crimes against logic.
To close this post, perhaps I should provide you with a glimpse of the DaleyGator Scale of Stupidity. this is in no way a complete list, just a small taste ranking those individuals mentioned in this post, and a few others
A Crash Test Dummy

Anyone who believes anything anyone on MSNBS says
Jimmy Carter. Note, there is no living, or dead thing that is as stupid as Carter
There are many, and one of them is this. Once the Nanny State starts banning or restricting certain foods or beverages, they NEVER STOP! Bob Mack knows this truth and discusses it here
You didn’t have to be a Nostradamus to predict this. Once New York City’s nutrition Nazis had assured themselves that no pitchfork wielding mob of angry, soda slurping malcontents was likely to materialize before City Hall demanding the sugar-free head of Chancellor Bloomberg for proposing the mandatory downsizing of their beverages, it was time to declare open season on the compulsive poppers of popcorn and the depraved drinkers of milk. After all, we’re talking National Security here. Michelle Obama said so.
The New York City Board of Health showed support for limiting sizes of sugary drinks at a Tuesday meeting in Queens. They agreed to start the process to formalize the large-drink ban by agreeing to start a six-week public comment period.
At the meeting, some of the members of board said they should be considering other limits on high-calorie foods.
One member, Bruce Vladeck, thinks limiting the sizes for movie theater popcornshould be considered…
Another board member thinks milk drinks should fall under the size limits.
“There are certainly milkshakes and milk-coffee beverages that have monstrous amounts of calories,” said board member Dr. Joel Forman.
When I first heard about the latest inanity from Mayor Nanny State up in New York, I was not shocked, or surprised. This is simply Bloomberg being Bloomberg. He is an ego maniac who wants to run everyone else’s life, so this type of thing is par for the course. The reactions from Conservatives did not surprise either. The Right, and Libertarians soundly criticized the ban on sugary drinks over 16 ounces in theaters, restaurants, and ballparks. We ripped into this ban for its absurdity, we ripped Bloomberg for his absurdity, again, no surprise.
The thing that I wanted to see was the reaction of Liberals to this ban. And, while some lampooned it, others went right into Liberal mode, meaning they were simply orgasmic that another agent of government was trying to be their mommy and daddy.
Take Gayle King, of the CBS Morning Show, called, oddly enough This Morning, boy those cats at CBS are creative, for example. King and her guests had some revealing reactions Via Newbusters
WAXMAN: You know what? I think – you know, I’d rather have people do it on their own, but if people need a road sign, why not? You know, I think — you know, I’m kind of happy that someone’s making a stand here, because I think that it’s empty calories. It’s not what we should be eating or drinking in our lives.
What? Who needs a road sign to know that over consumption of sugar laden drinks is NOT good for the waistline? EVERYONE knows this, they have for years. Yet here is a Liberal who thinks that we dumb Americans need a road sign! Waxman by the way is a chef in New York
KING: All right-
ROCCA: He’s making us healthier. I don’t love the nanny state, but I love ‘nanny’ Bloomberg. (Rocca and King laugh)
How is Bloomberg making anyone healthier? Seriously, how? The ban does not stop anyone from getting two, or more 16 oz drinks, Bloomberg himself said that! It does not ban sodas over 16 ounces in many other places, yet Rocca “feels” warm and fuzzy because now his “daddy”, the government is making him healthier.
WAXMAN: No, no. I one hundred percent agree. (laughs)
KING: Yes. Listen, I’m all for anything that’s going to make us healthy. Thank you, Jonathan.
AGAIN! This law will “make us healthier” somehow. I suppose King never thinks that anyone can control what they consume? Again, I work in the restaurant business, I have for a long time, most people today, without ANY law dictating what they can and cannot drink, chooses diet soda, or sweeten their tea/coffee with non-sugar sweeteners. Also a lot of folks opt for veggies or salad over fries. And again, no law requires this act. They actually do it for themselves! Imagine that!
Now, to another reaction, from a New York Times columnist, Frank Brunni who, despite admitting the absurdity of this law, is all for it!
WHILE Michelle Obama focused on carrots, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg brandished a stick. It’s what we deserve. Cry all you want about a nanny state, but as a city and a nation we’ve gorged and guzzled past the point where a gentle nudge toward roughage suffices. We need a weight watcher willing to mete out some stricter discipline.
Ah yes, we the people deserve to be punished by our betters in government, right Frank? No matter how ABSURD the law punishing us is apparently
It’s in many senses an absurd and random gesture. A merchant could still peddle a 20-ounce milkshake with more calories than a Coke. A customer could still buy two 16-ounce Pepsis, using tandem vessels and two straws to do the work of one supersize abomination. There are many vendors unaffected by the proposed ban, and there’s a wide world of caloric villains untouched. Man cannot balloon on Mountain Dew alone.
So, here Brunni admits that the law does not really do one damn thing to fight obesity. Yet, he is absolutely delighted over the law, why you ask? Simple, because it makes Liberals like Brunni feel good! Liberalism is largely a feelings driven ideology, and Brunni is a perfect example of this.
The proposed ban is also an act of government control and regulation that makes no small number of people squeamish. Should we not have the liberty to ingest what we elect to ingest, and to decide whether the pleasure is worth any ill effects? Are we not capable stewards of our own welfare? In general, yes, but the government has taxed cigarettes to high heaven, as a means (successful) of steering us away from them, and made it illegal to partake of many recreational drugs. Like those substances, heavily sugared soft drinks are wholly unnecessary and are implicated in health problems that wind up affecting all of us, not just the individual suffering from them. Food ceased to be a frontier too far when the fraction of American adults who qualify as obese climbed above one in three.
And, there he goes again. The Collectivist heart is revealed in those last two sentences. Liberals believe we must not allow individual liberties to stand in the way of the collective good!
President Obama on Thursday twisted the knife he’d stuck in his predecessor’s legacy, reminding former President George W. Bush that he left the economy a mess and al Qaeda mastermind Osama bin Laden alive when he left the White House three years ago.
“The months before I took the oath of office were a chaotic time,” Obama told a crowd of mostly former Bush administration officials and members of the Bush family, including Bush’s parents, former President George H.W. Bush and former first lady Barbara Bush.
“We knew our economy was in trouble, our fellow Americans were in pain, but we wouldn’t know until later just how breathtaking the financial crisis had been,” Obama continued, raising some eyebrows among the Bush crowd seated just a few feet away.
Awful, classless, and tactless. Obama acts like a petulant child far too often. Bush, to his credit showed class, and got in a couple of digs of his own.
A few minutes later, a grinning Bush took the podium and the friendly crowd erupted in loud applause, with some shouting and whistling for the former president.
“Behave yourselves,” Bush drawled playfully. Turning to first lady Michelle Obama, he said, “Madame First Lady, thank you so much for inviting our rowdy friends to my hanging.” The crowd again roared its approval.
Bush thanked the members of his administration who were in attendance and introduced his wife, former first lady Laura Bush.
“It is my privilege to introduce the greatest first lady ever,” he said, then paused to acknowledge his mother. “Sorry, Mom,” he quipped.
As for his portrait, Bush suggested to Obama that when he is “wandering” the White House halls wrestling with tough decisions, that he will “now be able to gaze at this portrait and ask, ‘What would George do?’ ” Obama laughed.
See the difference? Bush could have used the occasion to slam Obama for his horrid record on jobs, and the economy in general, or his record of insulting our allies, but, Bush has more class. Odd isn’t it? For all the Left’s disdain for Bush. For all their smearing him as a moron, and his “inartful” speech, it is their hero, President Obama, that displays no social or intellectual graces. What a great contrast. Two men, who have held the highest office in the world, one with class, and humility. The other with a petty, spiteful attitude more befitting an angry teenager who had their XBox taken away.
Although Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) earlier this month said he is “pleased” with President Obama’s decision to publicly support same-sex marriage, in a new interview the congressman revealed the president will not be on the guest list when Frank marries his longtime partner this summer.
“If he and Michelle wanted to come, I would be delighted and honored to have him, but he will bring the Secret Service,” Frank said in an interview that will air Sunday as part of C-SPAN’s “Newsmaker” series. “I would be flattered to have the president do that, [but] it would ruin the party to have the Secret Service. I’m not critical of them, but they can go take their layered protection of the president somewhere else. Not to my party.”
Just watch MSNBS. Seriously, consider the clip Hot Air has of Lawrence O’Donnell calling the Romney’s “out of touch” because her shirt costs $990.The funny part is that when Meghan McCain actually points out to Lawrence that Michelle Obama wears $600 tennis shoes, O’Donnell shoots back that the shoes really only cost $450. yeah, that is “in touch” Lawrence!
Of course, this type of class warfare garbage is all the Left has. They cannot talk about any substantive issue. AllahPundit gets it right
When you can’t talk about $5 trillion in new debt, talk about a $990 shirt that the candidate’s wife bought with her own money. When you can’t talk about unemployment dropping below eight percent, talk about car elevators. If this economy ends up in a double dip, we may well see an “all Seamus, all the time” format on MSNBC for the month of October. Can’t wait for Martin Bashir’s dramatic eulogy for Man’s Best Friend on Election Day eve.
