Catching up on a bunch of stuff that caught my eye on the Interwebs.
Poll data shows that liberals are less patriotic. No surprise here.
RESEARCHER REAFFIRMS: AT LEAST 760,000 DEFENSIVE GUN USES A YEAR. “Gun Control” fanatics are in denial of the settled science.
The Obama White House Says They Will Not Release IRS Documents On Tea Party Targeting… Y’all know that the whole “most transparent administration ever” thing was just another lie Obama told to get the useful idiots to vote for him. This is just another example of his flipping off the American people.
What is the difference between fascism and progressive ideology? If you don’t know the answer to this, you can probably blame a public school teacher who identifies as a progressive. Both “are very hostile to individualism, especially in the field of economics.”
Once again, I’m going with an Independence Day double header. Starting with the 1972 film version of the Broadway musical 1776. It tells the tale of getting the resolution on Independence passed through the Continental Congress in the summer of 1776. William Daniels is quite good as John Adams, but it is Howard Da Silva as Benjamin Franklin who steals the show. The second film was the 4th of July weekend pick for 2009. It is the story of Crocumentary filmmaker Michael Malone (name slightly changed so you will be sure which fat communist bastard it is supposed to be), who wants to ban the “4th of July” and is visited by the Ghost of John F. Kennedy, who tells that he will be visited by three spirits in order to cure him of his un-American ways. Very funny, with a great cast of actors who put their careers at risk by outing themselves as Conservatives in the far left extremist moonbat haven of Hollywood.
A classic Western from 1959 recommended by none other than the Middleman! Great cast which includes Randolph Scott, Pernell Roberts, Lee Van Cleef, and a very young James Coburn. Scott plays a bounty hunter with his own reasons for bringing in a killer. Roberts and Coburn’s characters want to bring him in for their own reasons, and the killer’s brother, played by Van Cleef, a viscous, cold blooded killer, doesn’t want to see his little brother hang. Throw in Indian attacks and a beautiful woman (played by the director’s wife) for flavor, and you have a classic Western with Noir elements. Well worth the popcorn and rental fee.

In case you missed extensive main stream media coverage of this story, here is a quick summary: “…the personal data of some four million federal employees who sought security clearances over the past 30 years had been compromised. Now the president of the American Federation of Government Employees, J. David Cox, has informed OPM in a letter that his organization believes “the Central Personnel Data File was the targeted database, and that the hackers are now in possession of all personnel data for every federal employee, every federal retiree, and up to one million former federal employees.””
In other words, the US got pwoned by hackers in the employ of the Communist Chinese government.
The United States is loosing the Cyberwar big time and our Dear Leader really doesn’t seem to care.
CIA releases memo showing agency blamed Bill Clinton for bankrupting war on terror ahead of 9/11. There is a reason ABC has been pressured to never release The Path to 9/11 after the original, one time, airing.
Flight Logs Confirm Clinton and Dershowitz Flew on Pedophile Billionaire’s Sex Jet. Of course there is a blackout of this on most of the so-called “main stream” media. On the other hand, this is Billy Jeff Clinton we’re talking about. It would have been surprising if he hadn’t been on a jet to an island where he could have sex with underaged girls.
Politico sat on allegations Lois Lerner had prior history of targeting conservatives. Given Politico’s well known left leaning tendencies, this is not a surprise.
I caught a bit of the NPR Sunday Quiz/Talk show today. One of the hosts was mocking one of the Republican presidential candidates’ comment about having a “rotating First Lady” if elected. The candidate in question is unmarried.
The so-called “Liberal”, probably a “Progressive”, democrat hosting the show immediately asked if the rotation would be like a rotisserie chicken or a slab of beef on a rotating pedestal, so “slices of First Lady” could be carved off as needed.
It is not surprising that the leftist first inclination was to equate a woman to a piece of meat. As I have pointed out before, if you want to know what the extremist left is doing, just look to what they are accusing their enemies of. Case in point, the alleged “War on Women” they accuse any body to the right of Chairman Mao of conducting.
In addition to this “progressive” democrat doing what fascists do, dehumanize their foes, you can add the following to the extreme far left’s “War on Women.”
- Conservative women who dare to speak at college campuses need to hire bodyguards to protect themselves from the “tolerant and open minded” leftists on campus.
- A CNN Talking Head by the name of Carol Costello, found an attack on Gov. Sarah Palin’ daughter humorous
- The coordinated attack, lead by Hillary Rodham Clinton, on every women who dared to speak up after being sexually assaulted (including rape), by her husband Bill Clinton.
- A South Carolina democrat referred to Gov. Haley a “whore.”
Feel free to add to the list. There are plenty more examples.
Let’s look at some economic news:
From Professor Reynolds, Three ways to actually do something positive about the economy.
Businesses quietly switch to dollar in socialist Venezuela. Add this to long list of socialism failures that socialists refuse to acknowledge.
A U.S. Customs and Border Protection helicopter operating near the Mexican border Texas was forced down after taking gunfire from people firing from Mexico. An article from Breitbart states that the helicopter was part of a team interdicting a narcotics load and working with the U.S. Border Patrol. The operation occurred near the headquarters of the Los Zetas drug cartel.
One has to wonder if the Los Zetas were one of the Mexican drug cartels that the Obama regime supplied weapons to.
I am prepared to be underwhelmed by our Dear Leader’s response to this armed attack from a foreign country on US federal agents. The Mexican drug cartels have declared war the US. Hopefully the response will be something stronger than supplying them more weapons payed for by the American taxpayer.
“Liberal racism is nothing new, of course — in fact, it’s perfectly normal. Drive around white Los Angeles all day and you will rarely, if ever, see a black face, and the only Mexicans you’ll encounter will be maids and gardeners. “Diversity,” it seems, is for other people”
Double shot QotD!
“‘Hate speech’ is a made-up term used to justify censorship. It’s an un-American idea, used by anti-American people. It’s a marker for fascism.” — Glenn Reynolds
“I think the notion that we should treat pole dancing like constitutionally protected free speech while we try to ban actual political speech is just one of the loopiest manifestations of our popular confusion over the First Amendment.” — Jonah Goldberg
Both of these statements refer to what I have often said. The progressive left really doesn’t like the concept of Free Speech. They want to make any speech they disagree with illegal. They use Orwell’s 1984 as a training manual, instead of the warning it was meant to be.
