Blackfaced Vultures

Posted in Politics on December 31st, 2008

Whenever anything is dying the vultures start to circle, looking to garner to free meal off the carcass of whatever animal or person that has died. Many times, if the victim is weak enough, the vultures don’t even wait for their victim to expire before feasting upon it.

Here’s a YouTube video showing these horrid but necessary scavengers in action: Feeding Vultures

As gruesome as that is in nature, it’s even worse in the American political sphere. The vultures there don’t just feed on the victim; they feed on the victim’s damaged position to gain a free political advantage – most often at the expense of decent American citizens across the nation.

Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich’s political career – and hopefully his life as a free man with full enfranchisement as a US citizen – is coming to a painful and bloody end. Blagojevich’s demise is self-inflicted; his rampant, open and unrepentant corruption and criminality has caught up with him.

Much like political “suicide bomber” though, Blago intends to take a bunch of people with him.

Call The Vultures To The Feast

The Democrat controlled US Senate has boldly, plainly, and surprisingly succinctly stated that they will not seat whoever Gov. Blagojevich appoints to replace Barack Obama as the junior Senator from Illinois. Originally Blago seemed to accept that, but the vultures – blackfaced vultures in this case – in all their reeking and foul glory were already circling the doomed Governor.

Blagojevich saw the nasty possibilities of these vultures and quickly reversed his decision to not attempt to appoint anyone to fill the IL Senate seat recently vacated by President-elect Obama.

So when Roland Burris expressed an ongoing interest in the Senate appointment, despite the taint that Blagojevich’s appointment would smear upon it, Blago saw his chance to attack the Democratic party that had wisely abandoned him.

Using Burris much as jihadi would use an Improvised Explosive Device (IED), the Governor appointed him to the Senate seat, putting the Senate in the position of having to surrender to political terrorism or deny Burris the appointment and thereby de facto exclude any Blacks from the current Senate.

Burris isn’t so much an agenda driven political operative as he is an opportunist. After a long political career that stalled out unexpectedly, he has realized that this is his last best shot at regaining political power.

Remember, this is the man who’s had a mausoleum built for himself in a south side cemetery with his accomplishments carved in stone under the words “Trail Blazer.”

The next vulture to come winging in to the feast was Rep. Bobby Rush – a particularly vile political scavenger. Rush, co-founder of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party, was quick to demand that Obama’s vacated Senate seat must be filled based on racial criteria. In his limited view a Black must be given the seat no matter what.

It took Rush no time at all to start squawking about race.

The aging radical immediately took center stage in the circus that Blagojevich created and began playing the race card for all it was worth. The former army deserter and convicted criminal, Rush started with the ever popular lynching reference:

I would ask you not to hang or lynch the appointee as you try to castigate the appointor. Separate, if you will, the appointee from the appointor. Roland Burris is worthy.

Nice. There’s nothing quite like having ranting Black politician trying to stir up race hate by using such charged terms as “hang” and “lynch.” But Rush is much like syphilis; he’s the unwanted gift that keeps on giving. He continued…

This is a matter of national importance. There are no African- Americans in the Senate, and I don’t think that anyone — any U.S. senator, who’s sitting in the Senate, right now, wants to go on record to deny one African-American for being seated in the U.S. Senate. I don’t think they want to go on record doing that. And so, I intend to take that argument to the Congressional Black Caucus.

So the “Deputy Minister of Defense“‘ for the Black Panthers, Bobby rush, made an explicit attempt to recast the situation in solely racialist terms. And then he added a threat, as is so typical of his sort.  He tries to say that any senator who opposed Burris’ seating as the junior senator from Illinois — for any reason whatsoever — desires an all-white body in the US Senate.  His mouthings claims that the Senate  are racists or, at the very least, uncaring of the supposed need for diversity ,and are no friends of minority Americans.

And yet this vulture still wasn’t done spewing his racist, Black Power filth across the media. This morning, Dec. 31st, 2008, on CBS, Boby Rush  compared the possibility of the U.S. Senate refusing to seat Burris to Orval Faubus, George Wallace and Bull Connor blocking the progress of integration and civil rights.

MAGGIE RODRIGUEZ: Yesterday we heard you say they shouldn’t hang and lynch the appointee to punish the appointor.  But do you believe this is the way the only African-American senator should be seated, tainted rightly or not by a scandal, and against the objections of most of his own party?

BOBBY RUSH: Well, let me just say this.  You know, the recent history of our nation has shown us that sometimes there can be individuals and there can be situations where schoolchildren, where you had officials standing in the doorway of schoolchildren.  I’m talking about Orville Faubus back in 1957 in Little Rock, Arkansas.  I’m talking about George Wallace.  Bull Connors [sic]. And I’m sure that the U.S. Senate don’t want to see themselves placed in the same position.

Oh yeah – the vultures are circling and looking to feed of of Blagojevich’s political corpse. Sadly, some of them are a particularly disease-ridden variety of scavenger who want to feed off of a lot more than just Illinois’ felonious soon-to-be ex-Governor.

Bruised Dignity

Posted in Politics on December 30th, 2008

It\'s the J.E.W.S

What do you call an anti-Semite, anti-American radical with a penchant for deranged behavior? These days you call her Cynthia McKinney, former Congresswoman, failed Green party presidential candidate and certifiable basket case.

The erstwhile McKinney is off her meds again. She was aboard the SS Dignity when it tried to run the Israeli blockade to deliver supplies to HAMAS.

McKinney was one of 16 people on board U.S.-based Free Gaza Movement’s SS Dignity which tried and failed to deliver 3.5 tons of what has been claimed to medical supplies to the terrorist organization HAMAS in the Gaza Strip.

Depending on which account you choose to believe – both sides have plenty of reason to lie – the Dignity either collided with an Israeli patrol boat in a misguided attempt to evade the blockade or was rammed by the Israeli patrol after failing to heed warning volleys fired near it in an attempt to turn the Dignity back.

The Dignity, bruised and battered, later made safe harbor in Tyre, Lebanon’s southern-most seaport. There were no reported injuries among her crew, though it’s expected that McKinney was raving incoherently about the Jews – that’s spelled J-E-W-S – by the end of the voyage.

Cynthia McKinney is grandstanding madwoman who is a danger to all those near her. Her particular form of wild-eyed behavior and racism fatally poisons every cause she touches.

Taking McKinney’s unfortunate involvement in important international affairs out of the equation, there are some serious questions about this incident that need to be answered.

Where exactly was the SS Dignity when it was actively engaged by the Israeli navy? Was it in international waters as the Free Gaza people claim, or had it actually reached the blockade line before any deterrence was attempted by the Israelis?

What organization within the Gaza strip were the intended recipients of the Dignity’s cargo? This makes a huge difference. HAMAS is an internationally condemned terrorist organization and an avowed enemy of the US. Lending them any form of “aid and comfort” is both a violation of the Hague Convention and of US law.

On the other hand, the Red Crescent, the Islamic variant of the Red Cross, is an internationally recognized relief agency that is explicitly protected under international law. If the supplies and personnel were on consignment to the Red Crescent, Israel is in direct violation of the Geneva Convention and other international agreements regarding medical aid in war zones.

It would be good to have these questions answered. Sadly, this grandstanding stunt is going to draw all the wrong sort attention to the matter – especially with a deranged radical like Cynthia McKinney involved in it.

Obama’s Tahadi Al-Burhan

Posted in Politics on December 30th, 2008

Tahadi Al-Burhan – Test of Proof

The Tahadi Al-Burhan, the test or challenge of proof, could be described as a challenge that cannot be avoided and that will carry serious rewards and/or consequences for the one challenged.

Is Israel’s attack on Gaza Obama’s Tahadi Al-Burhan? Is this the challenge of proof that Barack Obama as the incoming President of the US must meet and overcome? Will Obama’s reaction to Israel’s new open military aggression against HAMAS and the rest of the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip be the test that defines Obama’s leadership of America in the eyes of his current supporters and the world at large?

And were we all already warned of this?

Mark my words; it will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We’re about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America.

Watch. We’re going to have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.

He’s going to need help. He’s going to need you—not financially to help him—we’re going to need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him. Because it’s not going to be apparent initially, it’s not going to be apparent that we’re right.”

There are going to be a lot of you who want to go, “Whoa, wait a minute, yo, whoa, whoa, I don’t know about that decision.” Because if you think the decision is sound when they’re made, which I believe you will when they’re made, they’re not likely to be as popular as they are sound. Because if they’re popular, they’re probably not sound.

— Sen Joe Biden, now VP-elect

President-elect Obama rhetoric to-date and his various Cabinet and Adviser appointments seem to indicate that Obama sides with the outgoing Bush administration’s support of Israel’s actions.

If somebody was sending rockets into my house where my two daughters sleep at night, I’m going to do everything in my power to stop that. I would expect Israelis to do the same thing.

— Sen. Barack Obama
July, 2008, speaking in Sderot, IL

With so many of the Left who have so far supported Obama being staunchly anti-Israel it seems likely that they will not approve of any US support for Israel’s actions against HAMAS.

So is this the testing of Obama – the “generated crisis” – that Vice President-elect previously warned us all about? If so, will the Liberals put aside their not completely unfounded hatred of Israel or will they condemn Obama for his support of the Jewish state?

Obama’s Tahadi Al-Burhan has come quickly, as Biden may have forewarned. Now the world must wait and see how he handles this challenge as well as what price he will be be forced to pay by his own constituency for his choice.

Got Green?

Posted in Humor, The Environment on December 28th, 2008

It seems we in the Developed World can’t go a single day without being bombarded by various doomsaying rants about the Global Warming Crisis and ecological catastrophes in general. The various proponents of the disparate green agendas do their best to inundate us daily with admonishments to join their cause or else….

Since this is more off-putting than effective in gaining support for the Green movements – some of which , in IMHO, are valid enterprises for mankind – I thought I’d make a suggestion for a more effective technique for marketing the Green agenda to America and the West.

Got Green?

LOL – That’s a Green Movement I could get behind!

I mean really come on! The environmental activists don’t have a great track record for getting the general populous through browbeating them into submission. I think they and the Earth would be better served by trying to win the heart and…er…umm…minds(?) of the people.

The Magic Negro

Posted in Politics on December 27th, 2008

Republican National Committee (RNC) candidate Chip Saltsman’s Christmas greeting to RNC committee members included a 41-track CD along with a note to national committee members. The candidate the chairmanship of the Republican National Committee’s gift has garnered him the “focused attention” of the drive-by media and the anger of the Left.

The CD mocks the Liberals with songs such as: John Edwards’ Poverty Tour, Wright Place, Wrong Pastor, Love Client #9, Ivory and Ebony, and The Star Spanglish Banner, amongst other works of satire and parody.

Of course none of the tracks listed above are what has drawn the ire of the Left. The media has focused the Liberals’ attention and outrage on a single track on the CD, Barack The Magic Negro. A parody of Puff The Magic Dragon made somewhat famous – or infamous – by conservative radio host, Rush Limbaugh.

In their now usual manner the MSM has painted Mr. Saltsman and the Republican Party as racist due to this ditty. What they’ve – of course – failed to do is provide either the lyrics of the offending song or the context within which it was created. They felt that sensationalizing the title alone would suit their purposes better.
