The U.N. – Useless Neanderthals

Danger Ahead
by Mike Huckabee

Most of the world is focused on events occurring on a daily basis in Iran. While that is certainly understandable, there is another dangerous situation going on that we all must pay attention to. North Korea presents a real threat to the security of the world.
Kim Jong-il, the present leader of North Korea is clearly mentally unbalanced. He heads a secretive, communist regime which tolerates no dissent. North Korea’s economy is in shambles. The country has been hit by natural disasters, poor planning and a failure to modernize. Aid agencies have estimated that up to two million people have died in North Korea since the mid 1990s because of severe food shortages.
In 2002, the tyrannical Kim-Jong-il, added to the misery of his people by announcing that he had decided to reactivate a nuclear reactor and to expel international inspectors. The United Nations has made feeble and weak attempts to deal with the continuing threat of North Korea to become a nuclear power. As the United Nations spends time drafting a really strong letter in its traditionally meaningless and misguided dysfunction, the burden remains on the United States and China to find a way to contain the growing threat posed by North Korea.
North Korea has nothing to lose. Vice President Biden said that President Obama would be tested by foreign leaders within six months of becoming President. It hasn’t taken that long. It’s a dangerous situation to have a nation such as North Korea hold the capacity to launch a nuclear weapon. It’s equally dangerous when that country is led by a maniacal dictator, who is accountable to no one, even his own people. When both are present it becomes a crisis.
Today the United States Navy is tracking a North Korean ship, believed to be carrying dangerous nuclear materials. Unfortunately, our Navy is being restricted from taking any action by the inept United Nations, which has adopted language requiring any Government wishing to inspect a cargo, to ask permission to do so. The UN resolution says that vessels suspected of breaking the embargo must undergo inspection, either on the high seas or at port. But any inspection depends on the cooperation of a ship’s captain.
How the Obama Administration handles this situation will tell the American people a lot about what we can expect from the President in dealing with foreign crisis. We can only hope that while President Obama is busy running car companies and banks he doesn’t forget that the world is a very dangerous place, especially when an unbalanced dictator is launching missiles and setting off underground nuclear tests just because he wants to.

So what questions are rolling around in my head right now? Will Obama have the stones to go over the UN’s head and let the Navy inspect that ship? Or will he wait until we get bombed to do something about it? Or better yet, will he do anything at all?

I guess on the evening of The Obama Healthcare-A-Thon on ABC, it really leaves a person wondering, what the hell are we in for? And how much danger is to come.  BHO’s oh hum attitude with all the things going on in the world right now is really making me mental.

ABC News Fail

By Caomhin

Everyone is familiar with the situation in Iran, this is the biggest story in the  world right now, with nearly every network reporting on the events from Tehran.  For those of you on Twitter, you should be checking out #iranelection, if you are not currently doing so (but I suspect that 99.9% of you are).  Twitter has been crucial for the Iranian people and for those of us seeking to keep on top of the events.

So with this immensely important story going on the guys over at Hotair pointed out MSNBC’s ridiculous programming  last night that consisted of re-runs of prison life.  Pathetic.  Fox and CNN (yes, CNN) did an excellent job of covering the news last night.  Also, we saw that Obama went out for ice cream while protestors were being shot at, showing great courage in the face of the evil Cookiepuss who is ruthlessly suppressing Fudgie the Whale and others.  Way to set that example Obama, I’m sure the people of Iran are on the edge of their seats awaiting whether you’ll get a Snickers or a Milky Way today while they again rise up for freedom.    Subsequently, Patterico has an excellent compare and contrast piece on Obama’s Big Ice Cream Adventure as reported by CBS and what was going on in Iran.  It’s a must read.

So while you may have thought that MSNBC and CBS were doing horrific jobs of reporting the news, well, worse than their usually steaming pile of trash, you may not have visited ABC News last night on the web.  Out of curiosity I decided to look at the homepages of each of the major networks last night, around 1:45 am EST.  All of them had at least a mention of the events in Iran, well, all but one.  ABC is so far in the tank for Obama that they are giving him his own infomercial (rumor has it Vince from the Shamwow commercial may be making a special appearance) that will not allow the opinions and ideas of those opposing Obama’s horrific plan to even appear in advertisements.  So with the biggest news story rapidly unfolding before our eyes, what did ABC’s home page look like?  Here is your answer:

Lies, Lies, and More Lies

By Caomhin

Let me say this flat out, I am opposed to socialized medicine in any shape or form and while Democrats are out saying that this is not their proposal, this is the groundwork to move us there.  Socialized medicine will have adverse effects on every citizen in this nation, lower the quality of care, make procedures more difficult to come by, lower the number of practicing doctors, and have many other negative effects on our health care system.  Opening competition in the free market and capping lawsuit limits are the two most effective ways in lowering cost and improving quality but Democrats will not pursue either as: 1. they hate the free market and true competition, 2. they will always and forever desire to expand the size and scope of government, and 3.  they do not have the backbone to stand up to the trial lawyers who stuff their coffers.  I just needed to mention this briefly as I will at some point in the future write a post that covers socialized medicine in more detail.

So why the title, “Lies, Lies, and More Lies,” for this particular post?  Easy.  Remember when Obama said that he would not raise your taxes “one cent” if you made less than $200,000?  He was blatantly lying.  If you smoke cigarettes than you already know this as he has increased your taxes already.  As Democrats seek more ways to strip you of your paycheck, I refer you this article on My Way News, I’ve taken the liberty of highlighting certain sections here below:

A proposal to help bankroll universal health coverage with a dime-a-can increase in the price of soft drinks.

Also under consideration are higher alcohol taxes, increases to the Medicare payroll tax and a value-added tax, a sort of national sales tax, of up to 1.5 percent or more.

The tax options include:

– Increasing the price of soda and other sugary drinks by 10 cents a can.

– Applying a potential 2 percent income tax increase to single taxpayers earning more than $200,000 a year and households earning more than $250,000.

– A new employer payroll tax could target 3 percent of employers’ health care expenditures.

– Taxing employer-provided health insurance benefits above certain levels – a less likely option but one that still is in the running.

So unless you never drink soda or alcohol, have a job (ala Medicare withholding from your paycheck), purchase any goods (the value-added tax will result in an increase in prices for all manufactured goods), have a free market group health care plan through work and utilize that plan, than, yes, your taxes are going up under this debacle.  This of course, is another service being provided to you by your Democratic Congress.

Let us also consider this, the weak dollar via the flooding of new dollars in circulation and debt is essentially causing an inflation tax.  The more dollars in circulation, the less valuable the dollar is, which causes inflation (and I truly believe we are headed toward hyperinflation with the increase in money supply and continually low interest rates imposed by the Fed) so while you may have the same income, goods become more expensive to buy, thus lowering your purchasing power.  Feel a little better now?  Also consider that Obama is gearing up to raise your taxes, and you can see the curtain being pulled back slowly but surely.  His Porkfest bill as a giant fail, unemployment numbers are even higher than he had projected if he HAD DONE NOTHING, yet here we are with just about 10% unemployment, a number Obama himself admits that will be eclipsed.  Also consider, the less people that are working, the less money there is for the government to get their hands on which will further increase our unbelievable amount of debt.  They’re going to come after anything they can, believe me.

What’s also important to note here is that they are also targeting specific products, again picking some industries over others, more market manipulation on their behalf.  Democrats are very easy to understand with their regards to tax, if it exists, tax it.   They have exploded the national debt and spending to the point where we are moving rapidly towards a path of being in debt so far that we may never be able to pay it back and the as the payments to our creditors increases they will seek more  revenue in order to meet their payments for these harebrained and anti-free market schemes of theirs and we’re going to be the ones suffering for it.  Now more than ever it is time to take a stand and demand fiscal responsibility from all of our elected leaders on the Federal, state, and local levels.

Please pray for the people of Iran and the people who are standing up to tyranny.  Do not give up hope, freedom can be yours. God bless.

 

It’s Been Awhile…far too long actually…

By Riss

I know, I know, I have been silenced by Obama’s Administration, sucking on cigarettes, booze and popping pills like it was 1969 all over again. Oh wait, I think people were far more free then. Anyway, I just have a few things I need to get off my chest…this will probably not be my classiest post, but that’s just how I am feeling these days.

Ok, so I am a few weeks late in saying or I guess calling Contessa Brewer out.  She is basically begging for me to call her out…WATCH.

 

It goes without saying, a woman with a brain would really be bothered by being called a slut.  It apparently doesn’t bother Contessa Brewer. So, ok, here goes,  Contessa Brewer, you are an ignorant slut! WOO, I feel so much better. Not popping a percocet better, but damn close. I love Ziegler though, you handle the clowns on MSNBC with such poise and that has got to be difficult!

Next…

SENATOR Barbara Boxer.  I mean really, you have to love to hate this bitch, no?  Can you even stand the audacity of this bitch?  How dare you SENATOR Boxer, you are a disgrace to public office and a disgrace to this country.  HOW DARE YOU!  She offends me, so I will not post a clip of her ignorance and the way that she spoke to one of our country’s best.  You SENATOR are a very small person, quite pathetic actually.  Your job is to serve your country and your constituents and not care about your big bad title.  You were voted for, which is scary in itself, stupid Californians.  Please don’t be offended California, but if you are a conservative living in California, how come you haven’t moved yet? What a nightmare! Anyway, Brigadier General Michael Walsh has done far more then you will ever do with your pathetic existence and guess what? HE HAS HONOR.   Hey Babs, aren’t you up for reelection in 2010?  Hopefully I can help your constituents wake up and guarantee you do not get a 4th term.  You are far too superior to be a SENATOR, next up for you Babs, cleaning toilets with the toothbrush that cleans that filthy mouth of yours.  It’s probably an upgrade for you though.

I would just like to wrap this up by saying, Brigadier General Michael Walsh, thank you for all that you do for our country. Thank you.

Why the Silence on PMA?

By Caomhin

Just to put add another thought on Media Bias today, you should really ask yourself: if the Jack Abramoff scandal was covered at near the levels of the Clinton Impeachment Trials, then why is the mainstream media ignoring the PMA scandal?  The answer, of course, is self apparent, more flank covering from the media.  The PMA scandal, in all scope and manner is much larger than that of the Abramoff scandal and both are utterly disgusting.  Government, in order for us to be free, must not be bought and sold but answerable only to the people that give it power in order to govern.

It is with utter contempt that our “leaders” have continually sold us out and we can no longer stand for this nonsense.  Throw everyone involved in matters such as these out.  If the political party you prefer is involved, than you better find someone to run against the incumbent in the primary in order to correct the situation or vote for the opposition in the general because if you don’t your a hypocrite and an enabler.

With regards to PMA, we have known for years, YEARS, just how corrupt people like John Murtha are and yet they have continually returned to Capital Hill term after term.  The Democrats have been anything but the “most ethical” Congress ever, despite Pelosi saying it (here’s a tip Nancy, saying something doesn’t make it true, but then again we all know you’re a filthy liar) she has run from any and all responsibilities and appearance of ethical behavior and open government.  She is not fit to lead a car onto the highway let alone the House of Representatives.  You’ll recall she wanted to elevate, Murtha, a man already known to be under investigation to her number two position.

The latest update is brought to us by The Hill where an investigation is going to begin (assuming of course the Democrats don’t later block it).  The takeaway from this article:

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) offered the resolution approved by the House. The move was aimed at giving vulnerable Democrats political cover as Republicans offered resolutions to investigate the PMA group and its ties to lawmakers.

That’s right.  Not to enforce the laws, protect the people, or ensure ethical behavior by our elected officials, this investigation is only being approved by Steny Hoyer in order to protect Democrats who have broken the law.  Inexcusable.  Hoyer and those who sold out the American people for personal gain all need to go.
