Another of his excellent semi-rant observations.
…agreeing with a progressive is like shaking hands with a leper.
Not a big deal, really, just one of those stories with the sound of the second shoe dropping.
In a joint statement, CU President Bruce Benson and Boulder campus Chancellor Phil DiStefano said they were pleased with the decision and now consider the matter to be settled.
Any reasonable person knew he was done at CU and would never regain his tenured position at that institution again, not after about 20 other academics ratted him out as a total fraud.
Still, we had some good old times with “Chutch” over at the place that shall not be named, where many of us met as blog buddies.
So in celebration of the fraud Churchill’s just firing being upheld by the courts, I take us back, waaay back to 4 Feb 2005, when Iowahawk introduced us to Chutch.
SONG: “Colorado Kung-Fu Justice Man”
Words & Music by Tommy Terry and Danny Boycey
Performed by Jan-Peter Bronston
From the ABC-Polyglam LP, “Arapazowee Nation”
In the aspen covered Rockies there’s a legend often told
Of a tenured native shaman with a cougar, grey and gold
He had two fists of fury and a Master of Arts Degree
From accredited Sangamon State University
He was a Colorado kung fu justice man,
Fighting fascist critics across the campus land.
Office hours: Monday Wednesday Friday 9 to 10
Colo-RADO (kung fu)
Colo-RADO (kung fu)
With red hair in his hat and Arapazowee soul
Speaking truth to power was his only goal
Writing grants and lectures, a simple mountain life
A Bultaco for his horse and a cougar for his wife
Adios, Chief Fakeyourassoff, we hardly knew you…and we are truly thankful for that.
Rachel Corrie, the fun-loving idealist, the peace-making protector of innocent Arab children, the face of human shields everywhere, the rich, white, suburban girl who became the matron saint of wannabe Code-Pink martyrs, the Peace Activist™ whose actions still beg the question, “Is it bravery or stupidity to stand in-between a kill-dozer and its intended target?”, Rachel Corrie was flattened 10 years ago today.
So, Happy St. Pancake Day! Have a stack of Aunt Jemimahs and walk out on the tab.
Blame it on the Zionists.
Blame it on Bush.

The Occupation Crowd made it to Smith Park in Jackson, yesterday. Nuke’s contributor, Jseedubya was there to provide us with some idea of what happened.
I went to the Occupy Jackson Rally this morning. I wanted to see for myself what this “movement” was all about. I understand the basis of their complaints, corporate greed, and the fact that politicians favor Wall Street over Main Street. In fact, I can relate to their anger as I too am having a tough time in this degraded economy. I agree that there needs to be some significant changes to the status quo, and I was curious to hear their ideas, if any, that the 99 percenters were promoting.
Some of what I saw was just plain bizarre. They claim to have no “leader”, but one fellow wearing a “wifebeater” t-shirt, and oversize belt buckle with a pot leaf emblem on it, did seem to be the head honcho. He would make a statement, and the crowd would repeat his words, almost like the were chanting. Then they would throw their hands up in the air like an old-time tent revival, and wiggle their fingers in agreement with the chanting.

I got an early birthday present yesterday from my oncologist. Results from Monday’s CT Scan came in, and the report was very good. No sign of cancer anywhere! Ol’ Doc Hansen is a real joker.

God is good!.
Have a great weekend y’all.
ECO-TERRORISM? Gunman who took hostages at Discovery Channel inspired by Al Gore. “Lee appears to have posted environmental and population-control demands online, saying humans are ruining the planet and that Discovery should develop programs to sound the alarm. . . . Lee said he experienced an ‘awakening’ when he watched former Vice President Al Gore’s environmental documentary ‘An Inconvenient Truth.’”
Won’t Al Gore please stop it with his extremist, eliminationist rhetoric before he inspires still more violence?
…. Glenn Reynolds
I couldn’t help but be reminded of this interview with the former Vice-President …
Grist: There’s a lot of debate right now over the best way to communicate about global warming and get people motivated. Do you scare people or give them hope? What’s the right mix?
Gore: I think the answer to that depends on where your audience’s head is. In the United States of America, unfortunately we still live in a bubble of unreality. And the Category 5 denial is an enormous obstacle to any discussion of solutions. Nobody is interested in solutions if they don’t think there’s a problem. Given that starting point, I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of factual presentations on how dangerous it is, as a predicate for opening up the audience to listen to what the solutions are, and how hopeful it is that we are going to solve this crisis. (my emphasis)
Apparently, the late Mr. James Jay Lee missed this interview. “Qver-representation of factual presentations,” indeed.
You just knew this was going to happen …
“An estimated 87,000 people attended a rally organized by talk-radio host and Fox News commentator Glenn Beck Saturday in Washington, according to a crowd estimate commissioned by CBS News.” LINK
And more: The day after wrap-up from Doug Powers …(at MM)
City leaders report that business is brisk in the sex trade, and that evenings mean big bucks, as many global warmers, politicians and civil servants are reported to have availed themselves of the city’s prostitutes.
““We’ve been extremely busy. Politicians also need to relax after a long day,” says ‘Miss Dina’, herself a prostitute.”
Perhaps this is the kind of capitalism that the socialists approve of. Or, maybe after screwing over the public through the cap and trade tax plan, the Goremons need some time to unwind.

Harry Reid will call for a vote on Judge David Hamilton next week.
Who is Judge Hamilton?
Posted on March 31, 2009 by nuke | Edit
So what is my impression of obamessiah’s first appointment to the Appellate Court?
Here’s a hint.
Warning: This decision is breathtaking in its fatuity.
Judge David Hamilton found it Constitutionally offensive to pray a prayer opening the Indiana Legislative session “in Jesus’ name,” but, specifically found it OK to for an Imam pray invoking the name of “Allah.”
Obama must be exhausted, having to tote that huge brain around with him all the time.
Hamilton is a liberal idealogue, and should be rejected by the Senate.
Send this joker to the bottom of the deck.

I read that Dan Rather’s lawsuit against CBS had been dismissed by an NY appellate court. And Gunga Dan’s lawyers to the contrary, it looks pretty effing final to me. It looks like the end of the trail for old Dan.
So, interveneing events notwithstanding, there’s one blog I simply have to look at, like it or not. You guessed it – AtS. And yup, there it is, posted at 12:22 PM PDT – the story, complete with the throbbing memo and all.
But what’s this ? In 4 hours 17 minutes there have been only 167 comments on what should be a record-setting celebratory thread, including only one by the Amphibian Queen himself, and it has nothing to do with the thread topic. [ed: after 9 hours, 172 comments.]
And what should have been a victory thread was only the top thread for a little over an hour before it was time for a thread slamming Rick Santorum as a creationist right-winger. And all the while, the blog is topped by yet another swipe at Malkin.
Okay, so there’s hardly anybody left that was there during Rathergate – Chaz has picked off almost all of them. But the fact of the matter is that Chaz himself isn’t really interested anymore. His single greatest achievement, the one that got him his 15 minutes, TV and radio appearances and allowed him to be a founder (flounder ?) of PJM and to think that he had a clue, and not even he really gives a sh*t.
Still wondering what the problem is, Chaz ?

The Religion Of Peace, in keeping with its tradition of selecting the most deserving recipient for this dubious honor, didn’t have as difficult a time as in previous months.
They state, in their citation:
CAIR honchos no doubt cheered the seventh season finale, as Kiefer Sutherland’s character, uber-patriot Jack Bauer, was literally on his knees before Allah. Presumably dying of poison in the plot, the agent who once defended America from Islamic terrorism literally invites a local imam into his hospital room – of whom he can beg forgiveness and pray with in his “final moments.”
With Jack Bauer’s deathbed “Shahada,” the producers may have finally jumped the Muslim shark. Let’s hope so. The series can hardly get any worse. Janeane Garofalo was actually cast as an FBI intelligence agent, which is wrong on many levels. (credibility-wise, it isn’t terribly clear how she managed to beat out Barney Rubble for the role).
Well said and written!
I gave up on “24” several years ago, not because it had “jumped the shark,” but because it jumped on and off frequently, in the same episodes. Honestly, how many times can terrorist escape a completely surrounded building?
In any event, after they took last year off, and returned for the 2009 season, I thought I would at least see if the show would be an improvement of the ridiculous product they had been foisting on viewers since the first season. It started out interesting, and then it happened. It was in the last half hour of the show, when, during a commercial break, a ‘PSA’ featuring the actress playing POTUS, came on and proceeded to proselytize about global warming. I immediately switched channels, never to return for the remainder of the season, but was informed by friends some of the additional nonsense that ensued, culminating with Jack calling for an imam on his (supposed) death bed.
A friend of mine had recorded it, and I had to see it for myself.
While they panned back, and you couldn’t hear what was said, it left me wondering if Jack did mutter the “shahada.”
So, I fully extend my congratulations to the cast and writers of “24” for their well deserved honor. It isn’t every year when such a clear message of dhimmitude is expressed by a prime time drama series.

“I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experience would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.”
Sonia Sotomayor, during a 2001 speech at the UC Berkeley School of Law, published in the Berkeley La Raza Law Journal.
Judge Sonia Sotomayor is listed as a member of the National Council of La Raza, but does that make her a racist?
24Ahead.com takes a detailed look at the La Raza (The Race).
Here is an excerpt:
Far-left racial power organization that’s considered mainstream but which funds extremists (also here) and supports illegal immigration as a way of obtaining political power. Funded by, among others, the Ford Foundation, the U.S. government (also see this, this, and this), and major corporations such as HomeDepot and General Motors. Has been pandered to by many top politicians, including Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John McCain, and Karl Rove (see this). Per the Washington Post, they and a few other groups had “virtual veto power” over the provisions of the 2007 comprehensive immigration reform (i.e., amnesty) bill.
Headed by Janet Murguia for several years, before then by Raul Yzaguirre. Former senior VP Cecilia Munoz is now part of the Obama administration. Former chairwoman is Monica Lozano (now on the Bank of America board, more here); current is Andrea Bazan (more here). …
In 1994, they gave their “Chicano Hero Award” to the person who’d made this statement years earlier:
“We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him.”
In the last election, The Democrats successfully sold the idea that Obama’s previous associations with radicals and separatists like Jeremiah Wright, and unrepentant terrorists like William Ayers was nothing at all to be concerned about. “Guilt by association,” they said. Prior to throwing him under the campaign bus, Obama himself even claimed to have never heard any of the more inflammatory words of his pastor. This was the man who baptized his children, a man he once called his spiritual mentor. And, the American public, hungry for change and tired of the steady diet of negativity in the news cycle, elected a man with no experience and a history of dubious past associations.
The Sotomayor nomination appears to be more of the same song, just a different verse.
When a judge rules based upon personal values rather than the law, then the rule of law is replaced by the rule of judicial fiat.
I do hope Senator Sessions is loaded for bear.

from the Denver Post
Rick Strandlof, executive director of the Colorado Veterans Alliance and the man most colleagues knew as Rick Duncan, was front and center during the 2008 political campaigns in Colorado. He spoke at a Barack Obama veterans rally in front of the Capitol in July, co-hosted several events with then- congressional candidate Jared Polis and attacked Republican Senate candidate Bob Schaffer in a TV ad paid for by the national group Votevets.org.
And the mostly Democratic candidates he supported — looking for credibility on veterans issues and the war — lapped it up appreciatively.
Only one problem: Duncan was a complete phony. His real name is Rick Strandlof, and was exposed by two members of the CVA, who became suspicious of inconsistencies in his story… –>source
Strandlof, 31, who invented the name Duncan and claimed he was a former Marine captain and 1997 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, never served in the military and falsely claimed that he was in the Pentagon during the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the group said…He often spoke vividly of being in the Pentagon on Sept. 11 when a hijacked airliner was crashed into the building. “The duality of that day, the good and the bad that I saw that day, are forever etched in my mind and in my memory,” he told KOAA television …
“I was involved in an IED explosion that killed four Marines,” he said. “I have a plate roughly the size of a, like, cup and saucer on this portion of my skull.” … Strandlof also claims to have had a hip replacement and to have “had a finger blown off.” Strandlof often spoke of his mistreatment by Defense Department officials, saying they dragged their feet on giving him a disability retirement.
That sounds very much like another war “hero”, whose wartime memories were just seared — seared in his memory, doesn’t it?
Here is the video of Strandlof in a Jared Polis for Congress ad…
Strandlof is in the center, and identifies himself as Captain Rick Duncan, USMC (ret), served 3 tours in Iraq.

Nancy Pelosi’s nationally televised press conference/meltdown this morning raised more questions than it answered.
In our discussion that followed in the previous thread, Swampie asked an important question:
Is Nancy Pelosi lying about the CIA briefings on enhanced interrogation techniques, or is she so dim that she really didn’t understand what was being said in the briefings. I suppose there is a third alternative, that she could be telling the truth. Frankly, I can’t imagine that anyone who watched her performance would come to that conclusion.
So, let’s put it to our readers. What do y’all think?
CHICAGO — In a bid to get more Muslim Americans working in the Obama administration, a book with resumes of 45 of the nation’s most qualified — Ivy League grads, Fortune 500 executives and public servants, all carefully vetted — has been submitted to the White House.
The effort, driven by community leaders and others, including U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., was bumped up two weeks because White House officials heard about the venture, said J. Saleh Williams, program coordinator for the Congressional Muslim Staffers Association, who sifted through more than 300 names.
“It was mostly under the radar,” Williams said. “We thought it would put (the president) in a precarious position. We didn’t know how closely he wanted to appear to be working with the Muslim American community.” source
I wonder how closely Obama has worked with this organization.
A quick check of the CMSA website reveals prominent links to CAIR, and ISNA, both of whom were named as “unindicted co-conspirator” in a plot to fund the terrorist group Hamas in the Holy Land Foundation trial.
Now that the story is out, I’m sure that yet another dubious association of the president will be explained away by the lapdog media. But, before this story joins the rest in the memory rat-hole, just ask yourselves this question: What if George W. Bush had worked closely with Christian leaders to obtain a pre-vetted list of Evangelical Christians for the sole purpose of making political appointments? The charges of “theocracy” and “separation of Church and state” would make your ears hurt.

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.

Today’s column by Charles Krauthammer gets to the meat of why the Ayers association is relevant, and why it is sticking to Obama’s suddenly un-teflon facade. Here is a long excerpt
Obama’s political career was launched with Ayers giving him a fundraiser in his living room. If a Republican candidate had launched his political career at the home of an abortion-clinic bomber — even a repentant one — he would not have been able to run for dogcatcher in Podunk. And Ayers shows no remorse. His only regret is that he “didn’t do enough.”
Why are these associations important? Do I think Obama is as corrupt as Rezko? Or shares Wright’s angry racism or Ayers’s unreconstructed 1960s radicalism?
No. But that does not make these associations irrelevant. They tell us two important things about Obama.
