So, New Year’s Resolutions Come Three Weeks Behind Schedule

In the spirit of “Loyal Opposition My [redacted],” I would like to offer y’all some cheer for the upcoming inauguration. Yes, we thought that the gag-worthy Obamessiah Adoration would be over after the election, but it seems to have increased in frequency – much like a teenage boy, whom, having finally gotten laid, is not calm and satisfied, but wants more – and more – and more.

At any rate, there are some silver linings in all this. Thanks to Glenn Beck, there’s a theme song for Tuesday’s festivities.

The top New Year’s Resolution – to lose weight – has not been a paragon of success – until now. Who can deny that the idolatry of Obama is nauseating? Who hasn’t lost her appetite (yes, even for things made out of chocolate) while watching the media-love-fest, which puts baby-talking teenagers who sit on each other’s laps to shame? Who hasn’t thrown up, if even in their mouths, if even a little, in the past few months? Fear not, dear readers: weight loss just got easier. Move over, small portions and blue plates! Obama is the New South Beach Diet.

The New York Times is running out of money – fast. Apparently, people don’t want to buy the paper that sent Maureen Dowd on a fact-finding mission to Alaska that was reminiscent of Joe Wilson’s “fact-finding” mission to Nigeria.

The pundits are already pointing out that Obama cannot possibly deliver on all of his promises. (Granted, we wish they had said so in October, but ’tis the nature of the modern media.) This allows plenty of opportunity to say “I told you so” and the like.

Americans who are abroad and are ashamed of being from this country are feeling the love from foreigners. Silver lining: those unpatriotic, thankless pansywaists are more likely to stay abroad.

Sorry for the rant (sort of!) – but I figured that y’all have to be more than a little tired of the love-fest.

In Other News, Gravity Still Pulls People Downwards

The Electoral College has yet to convene to officially elect Barack Obama as the next president of the United States, and the myths surrounding his campaign are already falling.  Aside from a wonderful opportunity to say “I told you so” to the liberals in our lives, this will provide wonderful fodder for the next four years.   (“Hope and change:” the new “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.”) The latest: the Campaign Finance Institute analysed the donations to the Obama campaign and found that the unprecedented amount of cash was not given by small Americans who were inspired by Obama’s greatness.  (Hat tip: TigerHawk.) A separate study found that perpetual motion machines do not actually work as advertised.

The reality: 26% of Obama’s $640 million (roughly $150 million) came from donors who gave $200 or less.  (Approximately 25% of George Bush’s donations came from small donors.)  The remaining $450 million – more than George Bush, John Kerry, and John McCain raised – came from people who gave more than $200.   Another 27% of Obama’s donations came from people who gave between $200 and $1,000 (here); this still leaves about than $300 million from large, wealthy donors – which is roughly what McCain raised from all sources combined, including $84 million for public financing.

The Obama campaign was required to keep track of each and every donation, and report the name of any person whose total donations exceeded $200.  Given that the campaign disabled the security features on its web site, which enabled people to give under fictitious names and with personal information that did not correspond to the credit card which was used, we can’t even be sure that all of those people actually were under the $200 limit.

Perhaps the news that the Obama campaign was not funded by small donors who gave their hard-earned money (during one of the worst economies in decades), but rather by big money, will prompt the FEC to reconsider its decision to not investigate Obama.  (After all, some of the FEC’s rationale – aside from the admission that the audit would be embarrasing to a sitting President – was that the huge number of donors lessened any benefit of fraud.)

Obviously, Obama will enter office with a tremendous debt to pay off – not monetary, but political.  Ideally, the American public would have known about this before the election, when it was actually possible to not vote the #2 all-time recipient of funds from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, for example, into office, at a time when the fall of FM/FM created one of the worst financial disasters in history.  We will find out (the hard way) who paid for Obama’s presidency and what he owes them.  Unions and their PACs? Overseas moneyLobbyists?  (More lobbyists?)

Naturally, the Obama-pologists are out in full force.  Among the criticisms of CFI’s study: the figure for “small” donations was an arbitrary $200 (which ignores the fact that this is the threshold for reporting, and also a sensible one, in that many Americans have an extra $100 or so lying around, but not an extra thousand dollars); the Obama campaign was longer (as if that somehow changes what big donors believe they are owed); and, of course, the ceaseless comparisons on a percentage basis, which ignores the fact that Obama raised a frightening amount of money from big-time donors, who will come equipped with their own demands upon our new president.

(Thanks to the super-fabulous Queen of Swords for the title.)

President Barack Obama

God help us.

It is up to the Christians

I was reading an article over at Politico a few days ago which talked about obama’s appeal to church-going Christians. Or, should I say, his lack of appeal to church-going Christians.

In spite of all that has been written and talked about the obama outreach effort to evangelical voters, only 28% if this large demographic group is planning to vote for obama. In fact, that number is slightly less than John Kerry received 4 years ago. How significant is this? The evangelical vote is about one third of the electorate. This is good news for John McCain.

Should anyone be surprised? I really don’t think so.

The obama campaign is offensive to Christians on many levels. Certainly the Right to Life is a large part of that. Even more so, I think, is the messiah-like worship that obama’s supporters have given to him. 0bama himself has done nothing at all to discourage them, and actually seems to revel in it.

It is the type of behavior that leaves a large portion of the evangelical right wondering if we are seeing the rise of the antichrist.

I don’t use those words easily, and just seeing them on screen gives me pause.

He can still be defeated.

This year, more than ever, it is up to the Christians.

Obama’s Own Words:We Will Bankrupt New Coal Plants!

If the good folks in the coal producing states haven’t voted yet, they definitely need this information.
B-HO’s words, recorded in January, are just now being made known, and it’s truly a shame. This is the type of rhetoric that many of us were already certain of, that he will kill jobs in this country, stifle advances in technology, and make our cost of living soar, at a time when energy costs are a major factor in our current economy.
It truly baffles me, that someone who is running for POTUS, could be so determined to undermine the very foundations of our country, and have mindless automatons not only supporting him, but fainting and crying at the sound of his voice.
Did you know that the U.S. has the largest coal reserve in the world? In fact, the U.S. is known as the Saudi Arabia of coal.
By one estimate, if coal were converted by the GTL processes into liquid fuel, the U.S. would have eight hundred and eleven years of domestic fuel. Here is another view of the energy picture of the U.S.

That B-HO is already on record in his disdain for the limits placed on government by the Constitution, and “bitter and clinging” citizens, he is now on record for being opposed to creating jobs, heating and lighting our homes, while paying homage to the new religion of Gormonism. Making the cost of living, and doing business, a hostage to the silly notion that we mere mortals can alter the climate of this planet, is the epitome of arrogance. As if having to peer into his nostrils, from his constant posing, isn’t enough.
The Earth can take care of itself, it has done so for billions of years. While we should revere our beautiful planet, be thankful for the wonderful resources God has given us, we should also use all those resources God has given us.
ALL OF THEM!

One last thing, many scientists have predicted that the Earth has an expiration date, in approximately two hundred thirty-five million years from now. Staying warm and fed, until the party ends, isn’t an unreasonable approach.

Time to throw auntie under the bus

Yesterday, I wrote a short post about Obama’s aunt who was revealed to be living in a housing project in Boston…

if this were John McCain’s or Sarah Palin’s aunt, do you think we would be reading about it in a British newspaper, only days before the election?

Somehow, I get the feeling that MSNBC snd CNN would have run weeks worth of in depth interviews. But, since it really doesn’t reflect well on Obama, it just gets ignored.

I suppose being embarrassed by the British press was enough to get the AP moving….

Barack Obama’s aunt, a Kenyan woman who has been quietly living in public housing in Boston, is in the United States illegally after an immigration judge rejected her request for asylum four years ago, The Associated Press has learned.

Imagine that. Heh™ .

Time to throw auntie under Obama’s bus

(photoshop by mypetjawa)

The last line of the AP article was interesting“It was not immediately clear how Onyango might have qualified for public housing with a standing deportation order.”

Dang. I’m going to have to think hard about that one. BWAHAHAAAA

Friday Link Roundup

Here you go. I know you’ve been waiting for it.

You’ve gotta love Debbie Schlussel. She has positively owned the Khalidi-Obama story. You wonder why the LA Times continues to suppress the tape of the AAAN dinner? This would do it

…here’s what you haven’t yet heard: that a kids’ dance troupe that appeared at the event has a history of simulating beheadings and stomping on American, Israeli, and British flags….[snip]

But they didn’t just dance the debkah.

Suddenly the Sanabel AlQuds dancers pulled out fake swords and rifles and adorned three of their troupe respectively with an American, Isreaeli, and British flag. The others pretended to behead and/or shoot the boys wearing the flags. Then they put red scarves over the three boys heads, signifying blood and no head. Then, the flags were taken off, thrown to the ground, and trampled on by this young group of Milwaukee dancers.

Next up, the definition of “rich” keeps getting defined downward in Obamaworld. Bill Richardson lowers the bar to $120K.

Michelle Obama offers (in 5 seconds) a true critique of the obamessiah’s record … Link

Sarah’s “high-voltage appeal” plays well in the Keystone State.

The Heritage Foundation compares the tax plans of both candidates. Good read.

Horrors: Erica Jong Tells Italians Obama Loss ‘Will Spark the Second American Civil War. Blood Will Run in the Streets’.

So, if the obamessiah is up by double digits in Iowa, WTF is he doing campaining in Iowa right here at crunch time? Hmmm? Iowa Independent has the story.

Ah yes. Nothing demonstrates “Unity”, and “Post Partisanship” better than booting off reporters whose newspapers don’t endorse you. (Unless you consider the TV stations that have been “banned” for daring to ask the oba-biden campaign tough questions).

File this under “who’da thunkit?” … Ohio Secretary of State, the hyper-partisan Jennifer Brunner has some interesting links to that paragon of electoral justice — ACORN.

Warning!!! “Armies of Lawyers” have been deployed to Florida. Heh. Sorry swampie.

Friday Treats

This interview is an absolute treat.

Nigel Farndale, writing in the UK Telegraph speaks with Rush Limbaugh.

Superb.

You really must read it all. Here is an excerpt from “The man who’s always Right:”

Until 1988, when Limbaugh more or less invented the talk-radio format as a political tool, the liberal media in America had a monopoly, he reckons. ‘The reason my show was successful was that so many people with a conservative viewpoint did not think it was being reflected in the media. I validate what they already think.’ He reckons he is not always preaching to the choir, though. ‘We get Democrats. Calls from people who disagree with me all the time. Last week I had a call from a woman in Dallas who said I was causing her high blood pressure because she couldn’t stop herself listening to my show. The doctor told her to stop and she wouldn’t.’

His audience is now 12 times the circulation of The New York Times, he tells me. ‘And you can add up CNN, MSNBC and Fox, and my audience is 20 times that. They have no pretence of objectivity. They are activists now and they make no bones about it. CNN, MSNBC and Fox all opinionise. Like I do. They acknowledge this, and so it has become a battle between the two medias. The liberal media see this Obama candidacy as historic because race is a big deal to them. They think this country committed Original Sin. I actually believe that most of their support for Obama is that they are creaming in their jeans about the historical nature of the campaign. They want to be a part of it.They want to make it happen. They want a stake in it. They want to be able to say they did it if Obama wins.’

McCain gave money to Khalidi? The truth behind the meme

Yesterday, readers of our blog were witness to the birth of viral meme.

An 0bama troll dropped by our post on the LA Times video suppression, and informed us that the Obama-Khalidi association really wasn’t any big deal. Otherwise, why would John McCain have given over $400,000 to a Palestinian group that Khalidi worked with?

I googled his cut-and-paste comment and discovered that the exact same phrase had been already been posted to the internet over 500 times.

That same verbatim phrase now has been posted over 18,000 times!

Obviously the O-bots think it’s working.

The problem is, it is only a distraction, designed to produce an illusion.

Aaron Klein, writing at WND, shines the light of truth on the 0bama cover story.

It’s true that McCain distributed several grants, including one worth about half a million dollars, to the Center for Palestine Research and Studies, or CPRS, a West Bank organization associated with Khalidi.

What the 0-bots fail to mention is that CPRS is pro-Western and can be characterized as pro-Israel.

Its work has been condemned by the Palestinian leadership and by local terror groups as “Zionist propaganda.”

In contrast, the Khalidi organization Obama helped fund as a board member for a nonprofit, alongside domestic terrorist William Ayers, has taken a flagrantly anti-Israel line. Khalidi’s Arab American Action Network has hosted scores of Israel-bashing events, including at least one reportedly attended by Obama.

The Obama-Khalidi connection is one more straw. Is it the one that finally breaks the donkey’s back?

Free The Tape!!!

If this were John McCain’s aunt

Just wondering …  if this were John McCain’s or Sarah Palin’s aunt, do you think we would be reading about it in a British newspaper, only days before the election?

Somehow, I get the feeling that MSNBC snd CNN would have run weeks worth of in depth interviews.  But, since it really doesn’t reflect well on Obama, it just gets ignored.

Who’da thunk it? /s

Buffet sings for obama

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The mayor of Margaritaville is jumping into this year’s political fray. Jimmy Buffett plans a free concert Sunday in Tampa to urge people to vote for Democrat Barack Obama for president. The “Last Chance for Change” rally and concert is happening two days before the election at the outdoor Ford Amphitheatre. People can get two free tickets by visiting any of the early voting information tables the Obama campaign has set up in the Tampa Bay area. Show time is 3 p.m.

Sure hope ol’ Jimmy doesn’t forget to file the proper paperwork for an “in-kind” contribution to Zero’s campaign.

Let’s be sure to check those filings.

Also, I’ve got several Buffet albums free for the taking. Of course, you’re going to have to fish them out of the lagoon.

Obots continue LA Times distraction

Earlier this morning, we discussed the suppression of the Obama-Khalid tapes by the LA Times. The response from the O-Bot mafia was fast and furious. The strategy is to flood the internet with a particular talking point designed only to distract concerned voters from yet another questionable Obama association.

Any good sleight-of-hand requires a small distraction in order for the illusion to be successful. So it has become with the Rashid Khalidi story. Attempting to distract concerned voters from the attention given to Obama’s close friendship with the former PLO spokesman, 0-bot operatives have fanned out across the web to put forth the narrative that this is no big deal, because McCain was responsible for giving Khalidi’s group money through his chaimanship of the IRI.

The exact quote of the 0-bot narrative has now appeared on the internet some 534 times (and climbing). The distraction ignores the salient fact: McCain is a known quantity. Obama is not. The American People know John McCain: his military career, his legislative career, and his unquestioned love of country. The same is not known about the Democrat nominee. Obama’s past is opacity defined, and the people have a right to know much more about this man than has been gleaned from a media widely viewed as being “in the tank for Obama.”

The “cut and paste” talking point brigade has now posted the exact same talking point 780 times, verbatim. In fact, Alan Colmes just repeated it on television. Their best effort changes nothing. The public’s right to know is paramount.

Release the tape.

If A Speech Writer Switches Parties, Would The Media Report it?

Well? Would they?
My response comes with a qualifier.
Yes they would, BUT, only if it were a McCain speech writer, that switched to Obama, not the other way around.
Which is what has happened, with one Wendy Button, as she explains in this piece, SO LONG, DEMOCRATS!
In her words:

Since I started writing speeches more than ten years ago, I have always believed in the Democratic Party. Not anymore. Not after the election of 2008. This transformation has been swift and complete and since I’m a woman writing in the election of 2008, “very emotional.”

You really need to read the whole danged thing, but here are some teasers, that explain when and why the proverbial straw realized gravity is not only a good idea, it is the law.

The final straw came the other week when Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher (a.k.a Joe the Plumber) asked a question about higher taxes for small businesses. Instead of celebrating his aspirations, they were mocked. He wasn’t “a real plumber,” and “They’re fighting for Joe the Hedge-Fund manager,” and the patronizing, “I’ve got nothing but love for Joe the Plumber.”
——–
I can no longer justify what this party has done and can’t dismiss the treatment of women and working people as just part of the new kind of politics. It’s wrong and someone has to say that.

All I can add is, good luck, and best wishes, Ms. Button. I, like you, was abandoned by the donks, years ago. Now that you have begun your education, you will find the learning curve isn’t as steep as you once thought.
The left’s propaganda is effective in creating the myth that liberals are the most tolerant, and support the common man, and woman. You will soon discover, if you haven’t already, the opposite is the truth.
I didn’t make the transition overnight, from supporting the donks, to supporting the GOP, but it was the eventual and inevitable result. I think your transition may be similar.

A Glimpse Into The Future With Obama As President.

Usually the measure of a President’s success is, their accomplishments in the first one hundred days, not the first two.

Hopiness=Dopiness.

VOTE REPUBLICAN.

Coverup! LA Times suppresses incriminating obama video

Update: Any good sleight-of-hand requires a small distraction in order for the illusion to be successful. So it has become with the Rashid Khalidi story. Attempting to distract concerned voters from the attention given to Obama’s close friendship with the former PLO spokesman, 0-bot operatives have fanned out across the web to put forth the narrative that this is no big deal, because McCain was responsible for giving Khalidi’s group money through his chaimanship of the IRI. The exact quote of the 0-bot narrative has now appeared on the internet some 534 times (and climbing).

Obama’s past is opacity defined, and the people have a right to know much more about this man than has been gleaned from a media widely viewed as being “in the tank for Obama.” …………..

end of update

from LAT:

John McCain’s presidential campaign Tuesday accused the Los Angeles Times of “intentionally suppressing” a videotape it obtained of a 2003 banquet where then-state Sen. Barack Obama spoke of his friendship with Rashid Khalidi, a leading Palestinian scholar and activist.

The Times first reported on the videotape in an April 2008 story about Obama’s ties with Palestinians and Jews as he navigated the politics of Chicago. The report included a detailed description of the tape, but the newspaper did not make the video public.

The Times is now claiming that they promised a source not to release the 2003 video … funny how they have waited so long to make this piece of information public.

The entire matter smacks of a Watergate-style coverup of the highest order. The LA Times is on the wrong side of this issue because the public’s right to know the truth is the sole purpose of press freedom. This is crucial evidence in the court of public opinion, and to deny the American People the opportunity to view the actual smoking gun evidence is inexcusable.

Obama locks up key endorsements

On Sunday, Barack Obama scored the stunning endorsement of General Colin Powell, guaranteeing that he would receive over 90% of the black vote.

Tonight, another stunner….. former WH Press Secretary Scott McClellan has endorsed Obama, thus guaranteeing that Obama effectively locks up 90+% of the ass-wipe vote.
