Snail Mail From ‘Just Curious’

31 March, 2012

Dear Dr. Bulldog and Ronin,

If not the President, who has control of making sure “justice” is being served on those who are a “threat” to him?

Take these for example:

Tony Rezko and Governor Blagojevich incarcerated:  Was the opportunity for the truth of the President’s involvement made available to them?  Scapegoats?

Deaths of:  47-year-old Donald Young after revealing a homosexual relationship;   24-year-old Lt. Quarles Harris, Jr., found dead in his car with a bullet wound to his head, when investigating passport; now death of Andrew Breitbart after announcing he would reveal communist activity.

How many more I and others are not aware of?  Coincidence?  I don’t believe so.  Radical Islam?  We know how they operate, and they have received special favors and rights along with the decent Muslim people.  Is it a corrupt organization making sure truths are squelched?  I can’t conceive a deranged individual is on a crusade.  So, who is it?  And, why?

Why did the President sign bill HR-347 on a Friday, March 9th? Trying to avoid the news cycle, perhaps?  Now it threatens free speech in meetings and protects him from criticism, making a citizen liable for arrest and jailed as a felon.  Did citizens hear of this?

Are we now to feel we are the next victim if we speak out against our leaders who betray us?  Can I be the next victim for questioning what the rest of our country’s citizens should be asking?  Is the United States of America coming under the rule of a dictator?

Is the old saying, “Curiosity killed the cat,” a reality now?

Signed,

Just Curious

Biden Uses Trayvon vs. Zimmerman Incident to Push Gun Control

31 March, 2012

You just knew it was coming.  The Left never lets a manufactured crisis go to waste, and the Trayvon/Zimmerman incident is no exception.

If you ask me, though, the Trayvon/Zimmerman incident is a shining example of why citizens should be allowed to carry guns. 

After all, if some punk were smashing your brains into the sidewalk, wouldn’t you like to have the option of using a gun to make him stop? 

Also, something that I haven’t noticed anyone else picking up on is that Zimmerman showed extreme self-control in shooting Trayvon.  He could have unloaded his clip into Trayvon, yet he fired only once.  You know what that tells me?  That tells me there was no malice in Zimmerman’s actions and he was merely using the gun to stop Trayvon from beating him up and did not intend to kill him.  If it had been me, I would have unloaded my clip into the little puke:

Biden: Trayvon case could spur gun laws debate
By Chad Sinclair

(CBS News) Vice President Joe Biden said Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” gun laws will be a topic of debate in light of the controversy surrounding the shooting of Trayvon Martin.

“It’s important that people be put in a position where their Second Amendment rights are protected, but that they also don’t, as a consequence of the laws, unintendedly put themselves in harm’s way,” Biden told anchor Bob Schieffer in an interview to air on “Face the Nation” on Sunday.

Florida’s gun laws allow people to shoot in self-defense if they feel threatened. Mr. Biden, who was chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee for eight years, said that the Martin case underscores the need to ensure public safety in accordance with current gun laws.

“The idea that there’s this overwhelming additional security in the ownership and carrying concealed and deadly weapons… I think it’s the premise, not the constitutional right, but the premise that it makes people safer is one that I’m not so sure of,” Biden said.

What a moron!

“Zero Votes”

I don’t know why, but I kind of had one of those LOL moments while watching this new RNC ad:

Sub-Contractor Walks Off Job After Learning He Was Helping to Build a Baby Abattoir

30 March, 2012

I’ve got to say that I admire his convictions!  I wish more would follow his lead:

Sub-Contractor Walks Off Abortion Clinic Project
Friday, March 30, 2012 – CBNNews.com

Planned Parenthood administrators are incensed over a construction worker who walked off the job in Fort Worth, Texas, after learning he was helping to build an abortion clinic.

Consider the hypocrisy here:  Planned Barrenhood administrators are somehow “incensed” about  a sub-contractor refusing to build a baby killing factory, yet they not are even in the least bit “incensed” about their own culpability in the killing of more than a million babies each year.  The mind boggles…

The sub-contractor in question didn’t make the discovery until hours before he was scheduled to begin pouring concrete.

The president of the Planned Parenthood of North Texas insists it had legitimate reasons for keeping its name off the project.

“From the beginning, we intended to be public with this project,” Planned Parenthood President Ken Lambrecht told Dallas/Fort Worth television station WFAA.

“We wanted to choose the right time, so that our contractors wouldn’t have to endure the harassment and intimidation that Planned Parenthood staffers and patients must endure on a day-to-day basis,” he explained.

Other sub-contractors are now raising similar concerns. A nearby pastor, Al Meredith of Wedgwood Baptist Church, is offering them his support.

“However you stand on the issue, you got to be open about it, and don’t hoodwink others into violating their convictions,” Meredith said.

The contractor building the abortion clinic also built Wedgwood. The pastor has now asked the contracting company to remove the church’s image from its website.

Another Recipient of Obama’s Green Stinkulus Package Has Executives Living High on the Hog While Company Self-Destructs

30 March, 2012

Behold, King Obama; the man with the anti-Midas touch!  (Everything he touches turns to crap):

President Obama speaks about business hirings and expanding production because of the Recovery Act investments in the Rose Garden at the White House in Washington, April 30, 2010. President of Itron Malcom Unsworth (L.), from Washington state and David Vieau (R.), president of A123 Systems from Massachusetts were also in attendance.

A123 Systems' plunging stock as of March 30, 2012

Eco-Scams Are as Easy as ‘A123’
Yet another “green energy” boondoggle from Obama’s Energy Department.
By Michelle Malkin- NRO

While President Obama was busy lambasting Big Oil tax breaks on Thursday, yet another of his environmental-welfare recipients (the very kind he wants to redistribute oil subsidies to) was teetering on the edge of bankruptcy. Who needs to win the Mega Millions lottery? Start a pie-in-the-sky eco-boondoggle, and a half-billion-dollar jackpot ripe for squandering is all yours!

The Solyndra of the week is A123 Systems, an electric-vehicle battery company based in Massachusetts. The firm also has battery plants in Michigan, where former Democratic governor Jennifer Granholm once heralded A123 as a federal stimulus “success story.” Former House speaker Nancy Pelosi visited the company headquarters and hailed it as a “great example of how Recovery Act funding is helping American companies.” In addition to nearly $300 million in Obama Recovery Act funds, Granholm kicked in another $135 million in tax credits and subsidies to bribe the company to keep jobs in her state.

How’s the return on government investment? This green dud will have taxpayers seeing red. A123’s official company motto is “Power. Safety. Life.” But the firm’s reality is “Out of power. Endangering safety. Clinging to life.”

Earlier this week, the company announced a recall of malfunctioning battery packs manufactured in Livonia, Mich. A123 makes products for Fisker, Chevrolet, and BMW electric cars. Consumer Reports flagged the potentially hazardous defect caused by faulty calibration earlier this month. The recall will cost upward of $55 million.

A Deutsche Bank analyst wrote:

“We no longer have enough confidence that [A123] can raise sufficient capital (without massive equity dilution) and/or continue to augment their book to future business. Recent quality issues may lead to concerns over [A123’s] ability to manufacture with quality at high volumes, potentially leading to customer defections or at least difficulty in procuring new contracts.”

When it rains, it pours. The dead-battery debacle follows news of 125 layoffs in November due to diminished vehicle production by top customer Fisker Auto. That troubled company (into which A123 has itself dumped $20.5 million of stock equity and cash) admitted faulty-wiring problems with its electric cars.

While Michigan workers lost their jobs, Massachusetts executives burned through $155 million in cash this year and the company stock plummeted to just over $1.00. A123 lost a net $172 million over the first three quarters of 2011 and has yet to see a profit. Like Solyndra’s top brass, A123 managers have been living high on the hog and partying it up with Democratic-party bigwigs.

TIP OF THE ICEBERG – THE BEGINNING OF THE END FOR BRITAIN?

29 March, 2012

Mrs. Bulldog brought this video to my attention and I thought you all might be interested in commenting on it:

We Are No Longer A Nation of Laws; We Are a Nation of Lefturd Lawyers and Judges

28 March, 2012

Erick Erickson does a good job this morning of putting things in perspective concerning the Supreme Court and the Left’s madness;  So, I thought I’d share a snippet of it with you all and then link on over to his website so you can read the whole thing:

Sinners In the Hands of Anthony Kennedy
The left cries foul as the right uses the federal courts to do as the left has done for years.
Posted by Erick Erickson – RedState.com

Yesterday the left descended into madness. The madness came early in the day. It happened shortly after 10 o’clock in the morning. Justice Anthony Kennedy opened his mouth and uttered his first question on the issue of the individual mandate. He asked, “Can you create commerce in order to regulate it?” The question, the second asked yesterday morning, bothered the left.

As the clock approached 11, Kennedy spoke again, sending shockwaves through the legal community. He stated matter of factly,

the reason this is concerning, is because it requires the individual to do an affirmative act. In the law of torts our tradition, our law, has been that you don’t have the duty to rescue someone if that person is in danger. The blind man is walking in front of a car and you do not have a duty to stop him absent some relation between you. And there is some severe moral criticisms of that rule, but that’s generally the rule.

And here the government is saying that the Federal Government has a duty to tell the individual citizen that it must act, and that is different from what we have in previous cases and that changes the relationship of the Federal Government to the individual in the very fundamental way.

It was the quote heard round the world. It is what the tea party movement, libertarians, conservatives, and so many private citizens have been saying. It was an expression of what every legal scholar on television has pooh-poohed as the troglodyte rhetoric of plebeians not educated enough to understand their own founding compact.

That Justice Kennedy expressed something so obvious to so many Americans that so many well educated legal analysts have mocked for two years as an outmoded view of the constitution put forward only by hicks, rubes, and the racist middle class tea partiers not cool enough to defecate on police cars like the Occupy Wall Street hipsters should deeply, deeply trouble every radio station, newspaper, and television news network along with the American people.

Just how out of touch are the people the news media relies on as legal experts used to help form both their and their audiences’ opinions? More so, is it not abundantly obvious that legal experts let their own partisanship shape their opinions?

All of this, however, overshadows a more important issue — how the hell did a constitutional, democratic republic come to depend on the whims of one man in a black robe who nobody ever elected to anything?

Two years ago, Jan Crawford of CBS News noted the President, in his State of the Union, deviating from modern precedent in those speeches to lash out at the United States Supreme Court.

Mr. Obama, for the first time in modern history, took a direct shot at the Supreme Court in his State of the Union address, when he slammed the justices for their recent campaign finance reform decision. Six of them looked on — including the author of the opinion, key swing vote Anthony Kennedy — while Democrats jumped up to whoop and holler.

Shortly thereafter the Democrats, without a single Republican vote, passed Obamacare.

That Justice Kennedy yesterday raised a point that has been raised by so many non-lawyers is irrelevant to how the Supreme Court rules. All that is relevant is the President’s insult two years ago. Why?

Military Acadamies Embrace Rump-Rider Pride

27 March, 2012

Geez.  What’s next?  Scat Pride?  Maybe they can roll some turds down a hill and have a turd racing contest or something:

P.S. – If you want an eye-opening experience, turn off Google’s “safesearch” and then Google for “gay military” images…  But, be forewarned, it’s not pretty and definitely NOT for minors!  Yup, that should give you an idea of what the rump-riders have in mind for our professional military establishments…

Military Academies Hold First Gay Pride Events
By Wilson Ring – AP – via CBN

NORTHFIELD, Vt. — At the beginning of the school year, gay pride events at a military academy with titles like “condom Olympics” and “queer prom” would have been unthinkable. This week, they’re a reality.

Cadets in uniform at Norwich University, the nation’s oldest private military academy, participated Monday in sessions about handling bullying and harassment as part of the school’s first gay pride week. The events are believed to be the first of their kind on a military campus.

Just over six months after the end of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” rule that prohibited gays and lesbians from serving openly in the armed forces, it’s a different — and less secretive — world.

School’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Club

Until last year, only a select few at Norwich knew of the sexual orientation of Joshua Fontanez, 22, of Browns Mills, N.J., a past president of the student government who quietly laid the groundwork for the school’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning and Allies Club, which held its first meeting the day the law ended.

He had always wanted to be a soldier but figured he’d have to keep his sexuality a secret.

“The aspects of my sexual orientation, how that played in the military, that was something I was willing to sacrifice, being open versus serving my nation,” Fontanez said. “It’s something I feel I was truly called toward and truly loved, so it’s great that I don’t have necessarily to make that sacrifice.”

In December, a group of students at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London, Conn., formed a group called Spectrum, which has many of the same goals as the Norwich club. A similar organization with the same name is being formed in New York at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.

[...]

“Everyone has been very professional here at the academy,” said West Point Cadet Andrew Fitzsimmons, 19, a sophomore from Algonac, Mich. “It’s been a very positive environment.”

A group of alumni called Knights Out will hold a campus dinner this weekend and is expecting at least a dozen cadets to attend, said the group’s director, Sue Fulton, a 1980 West Point graduate who was among the first women admitted to the academy.

“The official status has changed dramatically, in that public events that would have been prohibited are happening; but in terms of attitudes, I think cadets and midshipmen have long been supportive of their gay and lesbian classmates,” Fulton said.

Norwich, established in 1819, has about 1,300 cadets and 1,100 civilian students. About 115 of the 200 graduating cadets plan to be commissioned in the armed forces through ROTC.

The gay student club is believed to be the first of its kind in the country on a military campus, Norwich officials said. Thirty to 35 people attend meetings.

Condom Olympics

The events this week — held at a different time of year from many other gay pride events, which usually are observed in June or October — include discussions of HIV testing; the “condom Olympics,” in which prophylactics are given as prizes; and a dance at which same-sex partners are welcome.

State Department Perpetuates Obama’s Refusal to Acknowledge Israel’s Ownership of Jerusalem

27 March, 2012

I guess we’ll just have to wait until after the November elections before the U.S. government can read a map:

State Department Won’t Say Jerusalem Is in Israel
BY: Adam Kredo – March 27, 2012FreeBeacon.com

An official State Department communication has labeled Jerusalem and Israel as separate entities.

In an official press release yesterday, the State Department announced that “Acting Under Secretary Kathleen Stephens Travels to Algeria, Qatar, Jordan, Jerusalem, and Israel.”

Keeping up with its longstanding policy, the State Department refuses to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s official capital—despite a U.S. law stating otherwise. Obama faced criticism on the issue last year, when it was revealed that the White House had scrubbed all references to Jerusalem being part of the Jewish state from a collection of photos on its website.

Obama has also been lambasted by pro-Israel leaders and some on Capitol Hill for capitulating to pressure from the State Department, which has long opposed U.S. law on the matter.

A senior GOP aide condemned the State Department’s recent press release as unsound foreign policy.

“Once again, President Obama’s administration reminds Jewish voters why he cannot be trusted when it comes to Israel’s security,” said the source. “He doesn’t think Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. Is it its own sovereign nation?”

The GOP source also chided Obama for continuing to buck U.S. law on the issue.

“Under U.S. law, Jerusalem is recognized as the undivided capital of Israel—period,” said the adviser. “Unlike the U.S. embassy’s move, that fact is not subject to any waiver or exception. So the question really is, why is Barack Obama ignoring U.S. law and refusing to recognize Israel’s capital?”

Obama Vows to Gut America’s Nuclear Arsenal…Again!

26 March, 2012

Let’s see now…  Obama is gutting our deployed nuclear stockpile from 5,113 to 1,550.  Now, he want’s to gut that even further!  If recent news items are to be believed, Obama is aiming at a low end retention of only 300 nukes.  That would drop us down to about the level of nukes possessed by France!   Gee, that’s comforting…

Anyway, good luck with that, comrade Obama.   Better get crackin’ before November, чмо!:

Obama vows to pursue further nuclear cuts with Russia

Matt Spetalnick and Jeremy Laurence
March 26, 2012

SEOUL (Reuters) – U.S. President Barack Obama vowed on Monday to pursue further nuclear arms cuts with Russia, urged China to follow suit and issued stern warnings to North Korea and Iran in their nuclear standoffs with the West.

Acknowledging the United States has more warheads than necessary, Obama held out the prospect of new reductions in the U.S. arsenal as he sought to rally world leaders for additional concrete steps against the threat of nuclear terrorism.

“We can already say with confidence that we have more nuclear weapons than we need,” Obama told students at South Korea’s Hankuk University a few hours before a global nuclear security summit opened in Seoul.

He pledged a new arms-control push with incoming Russian president Vladimir Putin when they meet in May. But any further reductions would face stiff election-year opposition from Republicans in Congress who already accuse him of weakening America’s nuclear deterrent.

[...]

Though Obama was vague on exactly how such a vision would be achieved, he voiced confidence the United States and Russia, which reached a landmark arms-control treaty in 2010, “can continue to make progress and reduce our nuclear stockpiles”.

“I firmly believe that we can ensure the security of the United States and our allies, maintain a strong deterrent against any threat, and still pursue further reductions in our nuclear arsenal,” he said.

But another arms accord with Moscow will be a tough sell to U.S. conservatives who say Obama has not moved fast enough to modernize the U.S. strategic arsenal, a pledge he made in return for Republican votes that helped ratify the START treaty.

[...]

Folks, we are being sold down the river by a gaggle of idiots!
