‘Dickileaks’

In a debate on one of the FOX News Channel shows, Left-of-Center radio show host Leslie Marshall responded to her debate partner’s call for honesty in politics by saying, “Please! We’re talking about politicians.” And there you have it in a nutshell. The American people have moved beyond the concept of apathy where the idea of honesty in politics is concerned, and have arrived at full-blown political sadomasochism. Having completely given up on demanding that those who serve them do so with fidelity to public service, the majority of Americans have simply accepted – as the new normal – that politicians of all stripes offer nothing but false promises, untruths and opportunistic spin for narcissistic gain, i.e. power and wealth. And while this is today’s status quo, it doesn’t have to be this way. Nevertheless, it seems as though we live in an all-encompassing state of political Stockholm Syndrome, unwilling to affect fundamental change, which we, as a people, have the power to do.

A quote often attributed to Alexis de Tocqueville, reads, “Toute nation a le gouvernement qu’elle mérite,” or “Every country has the government it deserves.” This philosophical observation certainly applies to the United States, even if in the most ironic way. Given the fact that our nation allows for the free election of a representative form of government based on a checked-and-balanced (via the Electoral College) democratic system of election, We the People – literally – have the power to shape the personality and morality of the government that we created to serve us. Yet, astoundingly, we have been led to believe that no one vote – no one voter – can affect the outcome of any given election. Again, I refer to Leslie Marshall, “Please! We’re talking about politicians.”

But surrender to this “new political normal” is an exercise in “political sadomasochism”; an embracing of several weaknesses, including acquiescence to a special interest ideological class, apathy toward being engaged enough to search out the facts, and cowardice to confront the more manipulative among us. This political sadomasochism produces – via our own hands – government, at every level, which we all love to hate, blame, demean and complain about; government that places politics and the well-being of politicians and political parties above good government and serving the people.

No better example exists than in the State of New York, where disgraced former US Congressman Anthony Weiner and disgraced former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer are literally leading in the polls for New York City Mayor and New York City Comptroller, respectively.

Everyone – unless they have been sequestered for the last several years, knows the stories that delivered these two men away from public service.

Anthony Weiner, an incredible narcissist and über-abrasive, über-Progressive political operative, has a problem with Tweeting pictures of his penis to young women who aren’t his wife. Recent revelations have proved that he continues to do this even though his wife, Huma Abedin (close buddy-buddy of Hillary Clinton’s), stands by her man, exclaiming that since his resignation from the US House – a resignation executed because he couldn’t keep his cyber-penis in his cyber-pants – he’s been a “model husband and Father.” One has to wonder if “Señora Danger” (Weiner used the moniker Carlos Danger to interact with his cyber-sexual conquests) has changed her mind or if she just likes her men a little bit arrogant and abusive.

Elliot Spitzer, on the other hand, had to resign because he had a penchant for employing high-paid hookers. To her credit, Mrs. Spitzer was recognizably mortified when she stood by her man, as he proclaimed to the world that fidelity to his marriage just wasn’t enough for his sexual appetite.

In both of these examples, we have men who worked their entire lives to attain political power; positioning, campaigning, working up the political ladder and achieving elected office. In both of their careers they achieved some good things. But there is a troubling and undeniable fact that precludes the both of them from every being elected to office again, or at least should preclude them from attaining seats of power every again. They lied to, they willingly deceived, and they manipulated and humiliated the people that trusted them the most, their wives; their life-partners; their soul mates. They both took advantage of the people that are supposed to be the most important people in their lives. And then they asked them to publicly humiliate themselves so they could get the butts out of the media fire.

Truth be told, if a person cannot even be faithful to their spouse; if a person cannot have fidelity to the most important relationship in his or her life, how is anyone supposed to believe that they will have fidelity to any relationship: personal, professional or political?

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me. Lie to me once as an elected representative in government and you should resign, take stock of your life and realize that your time in political life has come to an end by your own hand. But should you lie, cheat and steal and then apologize, huge crocodile tears in your eyes, promising never to do it again while your humiliated spouse stands in your disingenuous shadow, and convince me to vote for you again…well, then, as de Tocqueville espoused, you get the government you deserve.

It is stunning to me that the people of New York are allowing these two liars, these two cheats, to exist but a minute from again taking governmental office. This may sound a bit harsh, but after the outpouring of affection the rest of the nation afforded the people of New York City after September 11, 2001, I expected more than just a “thank you, now back to our regularly scheduled cesspool of politically partisan deviance.” I expected that when given a second chance, they would have done the right thing, corrected wrongs and strived to better themselves as an exercise in appreciation for support, compassion and friendship. I don’t know about you, but New Yorkers’ embrace of Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer is tantamount to a slap in the face. But then that’s just me…

The overriding point to all of this is that it doesn’t have to be this way. We can have better government; government over politics. We all just need to have the courage and dedication to demand that our elected officials respect the people and the office – respect the opportunity – enough to actually serve the electorate, instead of lying to them while lining their pockets and setting up lucrative careers for a post-elected life. We need to support honest people when they want to run for government and reject the notion that the parties are just too big, too powerful to challenge. Because We the People, by virtue of the United States Constitution, literally created the American system of government, We the People have the power to set the standards by which we are served. The fact that we do not is a testimony to our cultivated political sadomasochism.

So, we can either pretend that we do not have the power to achieve government that serves, and glean the scandals of the Weiners and the Spitzers – the scandals of “Dickileaks,” or we can do the hard work and act like Americans and settle for nothing less than the very best. If we cannot, then maybe Eric Holder, while wrong about the subject matter, was correct when he called us a “nation of cowards.”

“We the People  of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America…” – The Preamble to the United States Constitution.

The Left’s Continuing War on Women

war on women

New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner and his wife Huma Abedin attend a news conference in New YorkHuma Abedin learned from a young age that as a woman, she’s a second class citizen. Her value is not equal to that of a man, therefore she must tolerate whatever painful, humiliating or otherwise unpleasant treatment the man in her life decides to unleash upon her. Not only must she tolerate it, she must accept it as her due. She must not question it, fight it, or be seen to be upset by it.

Many people are wondering why she is standing by her philandering, pervert of a husband, Anthony Weiner. Some assume she’s taking notes from another “feminist”, Hillary Clinton, who’s also accepted second class status in favor of her powerful husband and that is probably true to a certain degree. But there is a far more sinister reason. Not only is Abedin a practicing Muslim, she was raised by a mother who is an ardent defender of Sharia Law, supporter of female genital mutilation, and a founding member of the Muslim Sisterhood, a Muslim Brotherhood women’s group.

In addition, Abedin’s mother Dr. Saleha Mahmood Abedin, is the longtime chairwoman of the International Islamic Committee for Women and Children (IICWC) which calls for, among other things, decriminalizing female genital mutilation, child marriage, polygamy for men, and child abuse. They also seek to disallow women from registering their newborns for a birth certificate by themselves because, according to Sharia Law, a child’s lineage belongs strictly to the father.

Huma Abedin has not actively participated in such blatant anti-woman advocacy, but neither has she distanced herself from it. For that matter, neither has her “feminist” mentor Hillary Clinton. During Clinton’s trip to Saudi Arabia last year, the Secretary of State visited and spoke at the Islamic college of Dar El-Hekma along with Huma, where Dr. Saleha Mahmood Abedin was a vice-dean and one of its founders.

While it’s unlikely that Huma is as big a fan of Sharia Law as her mother, there is no doubt these destructive and dangerous beliefs have heavily influenced her worldview, both personally and politically. While the left pretends women having to buy their own birth control is a “war on women”, the real war is being waged by those who don’t vehemently denounce the despicable behavior of men like Weiner and the mindset of women who are coerced by a perverted religion to embrace it.

Why Do Dems Elect Perverts And Criminals?

Rangel

Once again, I find myself shaking my head and saying, “What the hell is going on in this country,” it has been an all too common phrase for me. As I sit here reading about the disgraced pervert, Democratic politician from New York Anthony Weiner, I scratch my head, how could he possibly be in second place in the Democratic primary for Mayor of New York, what a disgrace for my hometown.

For those of you who do not remember the Weiner story, this disgraced perverted Democratic Mayoral candidate was caught using the social media website Twitter to send a link to a sexually suggestive picture (of his Weiner) to a 21-year-old woman from Seattle, Washington. After several days of denying media reports that he had posted the image, he admitted to having sent a link to the photo, and other sexually explicit photos and messages to women both before and during his marriage. On June 20, 2011,Weiner formally submitted his letter of resignation from the U.S. House of Representatives, effective at midnight on June 21. His letter of resignation was read on the floor of the House of Representatives on June 23 and entered into the record. Now there are actually people who want this pervert to become Mayor of New York City, unbelievable.

Weiner

 

Another disgraced New York Democratic politician ex-Governor Elliot Spitzer, forced to resign because of a prostitution scandal. According to published reports, investigators believe Spitzer paid up to $80,000 for prostitutes over a period of several years while he was Attorney General, and later as Governor. Spitzer first drew the attention of federal investigators when his bank reported suspicious money transfers, which initially led investigators to believe that Spitzer may have been hiding bribe proceeds. The investigation of the governor led to the discovery of the prostitution ring, guess what one of his platforms was, that’s right, fighting prostitution.(He would always have sex with his socks on) Spitzer announced on March 12, 2008, that he would resign his post as governor at noon on March 17, 2008, amid threats of his impeachment by state lawmakers. After his resignation, CNN gave him a television show (can you believe that?)  Now he is said to be preparing for a comeback into politics, unbelievable.

Spitzer

 

Again we go back to New York City, Charles Rangel New York Representative for 42 years, was once the head of the House Ways and Means Committee. Beginning in 2008, Rangel faced a series of allegations of ethics violations and failures to comply with tax laws. The House Ethics Committee focused on whether Rangel improperly rented multiple rent-stabilized New York apartments, improperly used his office in raising money for the Rangel Center at the City College of New York, and failed to disclose rental income from his villa in the Dominican Republic. In March 2010, Rangel stepped aside as Ways and Means Chair. In November 2010, the Ethics Committee found Rangel guilty of 11 counts of violating House ethics rules, and on December 2, 2010, the full House approved a sanction of censure against Rangel. On July 29, 2010, Rangel was charged by the committee with 13 counts of violating House rules and federal laws. Even after all this, he was re-elected when he ran in the 2010 election, unbelievable.

Rangel

 

I saved the best for last, who could forget the former Mayor of Washington D.C. Marion Barry, federal officials had been investigating Barry for six years on suspicion of illegal drug possession and use; that fall, they were able to make cases against Barry and several of Barry’s associates for past cocaine use. On January 18, 1990, Barry was arrested in a sting operation at the Vista Hotel by the FBI and D.C. Police for crack cocaine use and possession. Barry was charged with three felony counts of perjury, 10 counts of misdemeanor drug possession, and one misdemeanor count of conspiracy to possess cocaine and was sentenced to six months in federal prison. Barry was released from prison in 1992, and two months later filed papers to run for the Ward 8 city council seat in that year’s election. Barry ran under the slogan “He May Not Be Perfect, But He’s Perfect for D.C.”  he won, winning 70 percent of the vote and in 1995 won re-election for Mayor. Despite his history of political and legal controversies, Barry remains a figure of popularity and influence on the local political scene of Washington D.C. unbelievable.

Barry

 

What does this say about the people of America who elect perverts, drug dealers, drug users, tax cheats, thieves, liars and who knows what else they might be hiding? It seems like every day I pick up the New York paper, there is a politician being investigated, indicted, or prosecuted and 95% of the time they are Democrats, make of that what you will, no wonder our country is going downhill.

The "Great and the Good" Fall Further Out of Touch With Reality

   In a recent CNN article titled “Obama goes on the road to promote jobs,” we see the following statement:

Obama’s senior strategist David Axelrod vowed Sunday that every part of the bill will reach a vote.
“The American people support every single plank of that bill, and we’re going to vote on every single one of them,” Axelrod said on ABC’s This Week.

Just what “American people” could Axelrod be referring to there? Considering that his boss’, [ Barack Obama’s] approval ratings are still at historically low levels due in large part to Obama’s first failed Stimulus 1.0 package of 2009, just what American people supposedly support every single plank in his current Stimulus 2.0 plan? That statement shows the Obama administration to be completely out of touch with the American people today. This seemingly ignorant statement as to the reality of how Americans are very disgusted with Obama’s failed policies is not just being parroted by Obama’s administrative policy-puppets, but are also being parroted by the majority of the Liberal Democratic Party of today. DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Shultz chimed in with the out-of-touch-with-reality rhetoric about how the American people support Obama’s fake jobs plan, which was voted down in the U.S. Senate with Democratic opposition.

On CNN’s “State of the Union,” Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said, “Polling shows overwhelming support for Congress to pass the entire bill. It’s absolutely critical.”

Just what “polling” is the DNC chief propagandist referring to there? Sure, if you poll 50 uninformed people, 3/4 of them Union teachers begging for more Democratic bailouts at taxpayer expense, I suppose you could see some support for the Union vote-buying scheme known as Obama stimulus 2.0.0. As far as mainstream working class people supporting Obama’s fake jobs bill, that statement is an outright lie. The simple fact of our current 9.1% unemployment rate proves that to be untrue, unless the American people today enjoy being out of work while the Great and Good of the DNC, like DWS enjoy $16.00 muffins, Platinum-plated health-care and enormous retirement packages after “serving” in congress for as little as two short years.

A recently disgraced member of the “Democratic Great and Good club”, Mr. Anthony Weiner  will be receiving a generous pension package even though he was ousted from Congress for basically being shown to be a sexting pervert and a total disgrace to the words “Honorable Congressman.” From allvoices.com:

Even after stepping down like this, Anthony Weiner will still get all the retirement benefits from the Congress. He will be eligible for a congressional pension of up to $46,244 each year. In addition to that Weiner will even be able to collect the balance of his Congressional Thrift Savings Plan, which currently stands at $216,011.

Another member of the Democratic Great and Good society, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid also parroted Obama’s lie about the American people supporting every plank of his Stimulus package 2.0.0, even though Reid voted no in the Senate vote on Obama’s jobs bill. Reid stuck to parroting Obama’s lie about Republicans not putting forth any bills to encourage job creation:

Speaking to a conference in Las Vegas on Sunday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid urged the GOP to “get off of this kick of saying that the only thing that will create jobs is to lower taxes.”
“I say to my other friends on the other side of the aisle, if you don’t like what we’re trying to do, give us something that is constructive that we can do to create jobs,” said Reid, D-Nevada.

Senate Republicans gave Harry Reid this jobs bill, and the House also passed jobs bills here, that Reid ignored and refused to put up for a vote, and the Veterans jobs bill that Obama and Reid tried to claim as their own were all put forth by Republicans. So much for the lie that republicans have not proposed any jobs bills. Harry Reid also nuked the U.S Senate in an attempt to block the vote on the jobs bill.

In the ultimate example of just how far out of touch with reality the Great and the Good of Liberal-la-la land are today, even though Obama’s jobs bill went down in flames in the Senate, Obama is still harping at House Republicans to pass every part of it: (Talk to your Senate puppet Mr. Reid, Mr. President, instead of the petty partisan campaign ploy of blaming Republicans for your failed policies)

During the trip, “the president will challenge Congress to get to work this week passing every element of the American Jobs Act piece by piece,” Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest said.
The first part Obama will focus on is a proposal to prevent teacher layoffs, as well as saving jobs of police officers and firefighters, Earnest said.

Every single “job’ mentioned in the above statement just happens to be…. Union jobs. “Prevent teacher lay-offs?” I am unaware of not one single student who has arrived at school to be told there is no teacher available for class in any school in America this year. NONE.  As a matter of fact, the last stage puppet Obama used to show the people just who he “will put back to work” with his jobs bill….wasn’t even out of work at the time. The Great and the Good of the elitist Liberal Party want to “prevent” layoffs, “create or save” millions of jobs, and generally fool the American people into telling Congress to give them another half a trillion in dollars of debt to be strapped onto the backs of our children. All in order to fill Obama’s campaign coffers for his perpetual reelection campaign of 2012 by paying off big labor Unions. The reality of the situation says the American people are, in fact, wise to your fake jobs bill to pay off Unions and crony capitalists just like you did with the stolen stimulus bill cash, and DO NOT WANT ANOTHER FAKE  STIMULUS BILL.  2012 just can’t get here fast enough.

Amodei Wins NV Special Election, Signals More Trouble for Obama

Across the nation on Tuesday night many eyes were on the special election in the New York’s 9th Congressional district as “citizen” candidate, Republican Bob Turner defeated his Democrat opponent David Weprin to win the vacated seat of disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner.  Turner became the first Republican in over 80 years to hold the seat.

However, NY-09 was not the only Republican victory that night.  In Nevada, former state senator and Nevada Republican Party chairman Mark Amodei easily beat Democrat Kate Marshall in Nevada’s 2nd Congressional District.  The special election was called to fill the seat of former Congressman Dean Heller, who was forced to resign after admitting to an extramarital affair.  Amodei’s victory was not as surpising as his New York counterpart’s, as it seemed like it would just be a matter of one Republican handing over the reigns to another.  The real surprise was in the margin of that victory: Amodei defeated Marshall by more than 20 points.

Although the NY-09 race seemed to indicate a referendum on Obama’s policies, particularly regarding Israel, some pundits have warned against that particular opinion.  Many believe it was nothing more than a fatigued constituency that was simply weary of Weiner’s seedy sex(ish) scandal looking to distance themselves from the party he represented.  However, Amodei’s large victory debunks that point of view.  If that were the case, wouldn’t the NV electorate have at least indicated the same type of fatigue, considering the similar circumstances of that special election?

Whatever the case may be, the Obama administration is sure be paying close attention to these election results.  They may well be a precursor to the Presidential election in 2012.

GOP Wins Special Elections in N.Y. and Nevada

Last night in a special election vote for the disgraced N.Y. Democrat Anthony Weiner’s House seat, retired broadcast executive and political novice Bob Turner (R) beat N.Y. State assemblyman David Weprin.(D)

Not only did a Republican take this seat for the first time since 1922,  NY-09 is a district where registered Democrats have a 3-1 voter margin over Republicans. Weprin also comes from a politically well-connected family up in mostly the blue State of New York.

N.Y. district 09 consists of parts of Brooklyn and Queens, and this Republican win speaks volumes about just how fed up voters really are with the Liberal Democrat’s policies of the past 5 years, and the direction of the country under far left Liberal Democrat, Barack Obama. It will be interesting to watch the Liberal media puppets try to say this is not a referendum on just how far left Democrats have tried to move this country in the last five years.

America is a center-right nation and we can very well expect Americans to prove that fact when Conservatives again win historic victories across America in the 2012 elections. And then we can start repairing the damage from four years of Democratic policies coming out of congress, plus the two and a half years of Barack Obama and Harry Reid blocking Republicans attempts at budgetary reform. Congratulations go out to new Congressman Bob Turner, make that new REPUBLICAN Congressman Bob Turner of N.Y.!  Newsmax also had the following headline that explains on how this massively blue district turned flaming red last night:

Koch Played Key Role in GOP Victory: The Republican victory in New York’s solid blue 9th Congressional District seat in Tuesday’s special election came largely with the help of an influential Democrat: former New York City Mayor Ed Koch. In the special election, the 86-year-old Koch urged fellow New Yorkers, and disaffected Democrats like himself, to send a message to President Obama that they give him a thumbs down for his domestic and foreign policies.

Meanwhile in another special election on Tuesday, Republican Mark Amodei beat another Democrat-State Treasurer Kate Marshall, to become the U.S. Representative for most of Nevada. This election was for Dean Heller’s old House seat, which became vacant after he took a promotion to replace John Ensign, who had resigned in May. This big Republican win also happens to be right in Liberal Senator Harry Reid’s own back yard, and should serve notice that, as soon Reid comes up for reelection, it is time to send him packing into disgraced retirement for his part of  the fiscal disaster America currently faces today.

This is truly a great day in American electoral history. Not only did we get rid of one of the most vile, despicable, loud-mouthed far left Liberal radicals to ever be allowed into the Unites States Congress, but the good people of new York  have replaced him with a conservative Republican!  As someone once said, ” And you ain’t seen nothin yet, baby! 2012 is going to be a rocking good-time election year, with true conservatives swarming the country to restore American Values and some very much-needed fiscal sanity into our government.  While we still have a mountain of work to do to retire far left Liberal Barack Obama and the rest of his political minions and misfits in 2012, this is certainly a good start ! Congratulations  to new Congressmen Bob Turner ( R-NY) and Mark Amodei ( R-NV) !!!!! Lets roll in 2012!~

 

 

 

Blame It On Pandora

In class a couple weeks ago, we read the myth of Pandora to the students because they showed the holy grail of teaching (interest), in the subject.  As it was being read I was struck by many questions. Since suffering existed even when it was imprisoned in Pandora’s box, did people feel it still? Was it that humankind now had a name for the phenomenon? Was it simply human knowledge and understanding that sprung fourth much like the story of the apple in Genesis? I believe it is so. The curse the story speaks of is simply knowledge.  The curse is no curse, for what you don’t know, what you don’t see, and what you refuse to admit can hurt you, and everyone around you. Zeus was not angry at Pandora for opening the box, because he knew she had been given all the gifts of the gods. Eventually, her compassion was used against her by the contents of the box and she was tricked into opening it.

That is not the only way to look at the story.  Pandora can easily be blamed for the evils released upon man, even though she neither made them nor stored them so haphazardly. She’s the silly person who asked too many questions, the curious cat, the sinful and dangerous eve. It’s a simple and trite way to see it, but unfortunately also valid- valid enough that the construct has been used by the U.S. left since President Obama won the office of the Presidency. The plan is simple, put reality in a box and blame Pandora when she opens it.

The curious case of Representative Anthony Weiner is a good start. At the start of the saga was an extraordinarily inappropriate tweet sent from his Twitter account with an accompanying picture. He claimed shortly after through another tweet he was hacked. His evasive and immature behavior after, as well as his refusal to call for an investigation and his hiring of a lawyer were obvious signs of guilt but many chose to believe his story anyway. To rationalize their belief, they went straight after Pandora. The Pandoras in our first case being, an anonymous tweeter who captured the tweet and Andrew Breitbart, of course, who else? Mr. Breitbart was accused of hacking the Representative’s account and posting the picture. No actual evidence ever existed to support that theory, except for more theories.  When Representative Weiner finally admitted to what happened and more, many well-known people who believed Representative Weiner’s initial claim and accused others of severe federal crimes could hardly even muster a sardonic and backhanded apology. For good reason, they didn’t want to know the truth, they were angry at Pandora for opening the box. Yet another box remains, the fact that his behavior showed a quick and sociopathic tendency to lie and infer guilt onto others to protect himself, a lack of morality and an extreme capacity for stupidity. This box is being opened, and you can already hear Jeanine Garofalo baying at the light shed. In her herd, nobody likes Pandora.

The young James O’Keefe is another example. He created those undercover videos of Planned Parenthood, Acorn and other organizations. A youthful firebrand who has made some mistakes in his process, he was instantaneously attacked. While Planned Parenthood continued on even though the video shows clearly an instantaneous and un-questioning support for criminals of the worst kind, the kind of support that is reflective of active policy. If those people cared, they would have had the local Police Department waiting outside the door to arrest what they thought was a child pimp. They wouldn’t wait a couple of hours and contact the Department of Justice (our most liberal D.O.J. in history). According to the left wing the story was more about James O’Keefe, for the purposes of directing attention away from what happened and on to the narrative that anyone who is right on the spectrum is a bad person.

Representative Darrell Issa is another key example. Issa has been working hard to uncover information on project “Fast and Furious”, which pumped illegal weapons into the Mexican Cartels to “track” them, even though there was no plan of action to track them. Whether created out of shear stupidity or for political reasons, we don’t know yet. Multiple people have been killed with the guns willfully allowed to the cartels. The media, after ignoring the story for around a year, have finally started to report on it. Yet again, the focus of the mainstream media, was on Darrell Issa. A full out attack was enacted by liberal propaganda websites going after his criminal record when he was younger. He was convicted of a weapons charge and was charged with auto-theft, but that charge was dropped. This all happened in the early 70’s. Issa’s criminal past is important, at election time, but I find it odd that people wish for that to be the story while we have Americans getting murdered by weapons the government purposely flowed to the cartels. It really is “Iran Contra” on steroids. Darrell Issa became another Pandora ripe for attack for that reason.

There is a new Pandora just recently created through our Debt Ceiling battle in the legislative branch. Throughout the battle the left claimed that if the debt ceiling was not raised they would be downgraded. When the downgrade was made by Standard and Poor’s, the left chose to attack the rating agency. Even though none of the suggestions given by the agency were used. Oddly enough while claiming Standard and Poor’s is wrong the left is blaming the downgrade on the Tea party. Standard and Poor’s simply gave their opinion, which is their job, but that opinion based on the reality of the situation opened another box the left needs to be ignored.

Politics of personal destruction, blame it on Pandora. Thought terminating cliché,Ignoratio elenchi and red herrings are the weaponry being used. You have to see it to defeat it. Support all Pandoras regardless of what they uncover. If you have an issue with it go after the information, not the person. We cannot fall into the rut the left has lived in. You need to try to love those you disagree with, never try to do what the left has done to Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin and anyone who confronts them or threatens them. Bring it to the battlefield of ideas, ignore the middle school clique mentality.

Obama put the BS in joBS

Okay, so you’ve all heard Irene is heading straight at Mister O’Wonderful’s vacation hideout on Martha’s Vineyard. Now, assuming he doesn’t cut-n-run (doubtful) we will see the spectacle of Irene transforming Mister O’Wonderful into Ilean out on the fifth hole. This tasty sight would dispel the notion that Mister O’Wonderful is a centrist. It would be blatantly clear to even the socialist Captain Obvious Bernie Sanders that O’Wonderful leans to the left. Oh, pardon me. He doesn’t lean. Ilean.

But Irene is nothing more than a minor bother to the Lobster Twins despite the predicted giant sucking sounds for Massachusetts this weekend. The real hurricane is gaining strength out in flyover country and the computer models are predicting a direct hit on November 2, 2012. Hurricane forecasters are pointing out that those hurricanes in the Northern Hemisphere spin counterclockwise. For those of you in Queens that means to the right! Don’t get confused, folks— its circular reasoning. We don’t need a weatherman to tell us which way the wind blows… but enough about Bill Ayers.

For all you liberals still in denial, I suggest you forget your troubles for a while and go see a movie. Uh, never mind, chances are that you would just see Patton slap Obama this time around. Hey, isn’t revisionist history wonderful! Anyway, back to November 2nd next year. Obama better hope that he doesn’t have an election lasting more than four hours. Why, you ask? This is why, America …

(__!__) <—– Before Obama, (__O__) <—– After Obama.

Obama has things so fouled up now the Kenyans are saying he was born in the United States. Seriously, my commie friends—I’m just trying to cheer you up. Like you, I’m waiting with baited breath (I am a penguin, after all) to hear that O’Lobster has his claws completely around this jobs thing. But no matter what spews forth from O’Lobster’s pie-hole next month… Never fear! Barry’s got a plan to run the whole economy on rainbow-colored unicorn farts.

Mister O'Wonderful

Mister O’Wonderful

Don’t laugh, I’m serious. Barry and the Banking Queen, Barney Frank, have been squirreled away for weeks now with a laser-like focus on jobs. They’re being proactive. They’re thinking strategically. They’re thinking outside the bun! The danger, of course, is that given his track record, Barney Frank will be tempted to lead from behind. Poor Barney Frank, he’s in over his head. Oh, in the interest of full disclosure I must reveal that this opinion piece has been paid for by the Committee to Erect Anthony Weiner. Sheesh, I heard it through the grapevine that Barney Frank has a staff infection. (I really kill me sometimes!) Sorry, I got off topic there for a bit. Back to more serious news. Anthony Weiner: Wasn’t he the subject of what we were talking about somewhere in the middle of this run-on paragraph? Yes, he was! And the latest news about Weiner is that he is made from one-hundred percent pulled pork! What’s the point? Oh yeah, paragraphs are supposed to have a topic sentence and everything else in the paragraph is supposed to support that topic sentence, right? Well, there’s not much I can do about the sentences I’ve already penned but I’ll get back on topic with the concluding sentence in this grammatical nightmare (Sorry about the dangling participle there, Weiner). Here goes nothing. Barack Obama has the brain of a turkey and I’ll bet the turkey was glad to be rid of it.

The Democrats 2012 campaign strategy: If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with Barack. It has been quite enlightening for those of us who are conservatives to learn about ATM economics. What an education! Oh, the soaring rhetoric that spills from the lips of the Chicago Messiah whenever he speaks about those evil ATMs. But let us cut to the chase about Automatic Teller Machines. Obama’s real problem is that the ATM does not give out money based on a worker’s need and thus is an instrument of oppression. It isn’t like Obama can’t solve this ATM tragedy if he really wants to. Laws that liberals don’t like aren’t really laws, they’re just worded wrong. So Obama can just ignore banking laws in the same manner he ignores court decisions about the unconstitutionality of ObamaCare. He can simply do whatever he wants while we, the great masses of the unwashed, just keep wasting away again down in Obamaville. With fiends like Obama who needs an enema?

Sorry for this disjointed piece of prose. But, you know, you have to be real and these thoughts just keep tumbling out of my brain. It’s a matter of medical health for me. You see, if I don’t write these things down as they spill out of my cranium I end up feeling repressed. And you don’t want a repressed penguin on the loose, do you? So, here is the disjointed thought for this paragraph. The thought I am about to express had its origin in the second paragraph when I brought up the subject of Massachusetts. It sort of wiggled its way out of my frontal lobe and morphed into what you are about to read. Okay, here it is, brain dump time… Gee, someone cheated on a Kennedy…isn’t it usually the other way around? (Sorry, Arnold)

That last paragraph really moved me. Speaking of earthquakes, I hope future quakes create more land. Maybe, just maybe, a new “America” will form and we can have New New York!

Let us conclude with Obama’s job performance, or lack thereof, which is the underlying cause of the hurricane heading straight for a polling booth near you. You need a job and Barry’s just been busy winning the ‘Arab Spring’, one lobster at a time. You want secure borders but are left wondering if man evolved from apes then how do you explain Janet Napolitano? China has a one child policy and we have a one Biden policy. We’re told to watch what we eat while The First Lardass of the United States is swigging premium vodka, devouring lobster, and getting luxurious massages all on our dime. And don’t even get me started on her personal jet for the trip to Martha’s Vineyard. But (butt?) I will excuse that indiscretion this one time because I’m sure the Air Force has weight load limitations on those puny 747s they call Air Force One.

Between campaign appearances, there is no Barack Obama. Barack Obama, the man of a thousand excuses. So, Mister O’Wonderful, is it true that the people who live there on the island can get jobs as instructors at the Kennedy Community Diving and Swim Center in Chappaquiddick?

Hey, Barry! Copernicus called. He said you’re not the center of the universe!

Everybody, get your Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle loaded and hunker down.

And lest you think it is just conservatives that are sick of Barry, today’s news is that Richard Trumpka of AFL-CIO fame is threatening to withdraw union funding from the Democrats. See what happens when you do not vet your candidate, Kool-Aid drinker? Obama is going to plead with Trumpka, arguing that he inherited a mess. But the fact is that he begged for the job knowing that fact. Is he insane? Yes.

But, enough about Barry; next time we will discuss the other half of the Lobster Twins. We’ll all learn why Michelle is a perfect example of taxidermy gone wrong. Stuff it, Barry. Stuff it, Michelle. Stuff it, Joe Biden. Stuff it, Debbie Downer. And, “You first,” Maxine Waters.

Perhaps, now that the Libya conflict is winding down Barry will decide to attack Norway. Forget it, Barry. We can’t afjoird it!

Remember, America, you can’t fix stupid, but you can vote it out.

Heavy Heart For Weiner Replaced By Heartburn and Disgust

If you read my previous article, Weiner: Self Destruction by Pride and Arrogance, you may have mistaken my heavy heart as me feeling that Anthony Weiner was treated unfairly. If you read in the comments, I had a discussion with a reader that became a very healthy debate that I thoroughly enjoyed.

As the days have passed, more commentaries have been written and more information has come out regarding what it means for Mr. Weiner now that he has resigned, my heavy heart for him has turned to nothing but disgust.

Add to all of this, after reading, Weiner is his own wurst enemy, an article by one of my colleagues, I have a completely new perspective on this entire drama that has unfolded in plain view of the American public.

One of the main pieces of information that has come out after his resignation is the estimated amount of his pension. You can rest assured that the heavy heart I have and the tears I cry are most certainly not for Anthony Weiner, but instead for the American people. We have allowed our leaders to set up quite a nice pension plan for themselves when they leave their position, no matter how they leave that position. Our dear Mr. Weiner will receive upwards of $1 million is pension, even though he resigned amidst shameful- and possible illegal actions. $1 million dollars! That is just appalling!

In my previous article I discussed how it was a very rare occasion that I agree with Alan Colmes, but I had to agree with him that Anthony Weiner at least deserved the right to be able to resign without being heckled. Max, a CDN reader, made the point that this very well may be the only way his constituents could at least make sure he heard them. Through our discussion I told Max that he had a great point. It’s not just Anthony Weiner, but most all of our Congressional leaders who refuse to hear what We The People are saying. I’ve finally come to the conclusion that I was wrong, and that these constituents had every right to make their voice heard in this situation.

Anthony Weiner chose to lie about the details of his circumstances from the very beginning. It wasn’t until he was backed into a corner and his own party was literally pushing him out, that he finally stood up and told the truth. I firmly believe that had the party leaders not pushed him he would have never resigned. His arrogance and pride are far to great for that!

Now, after having more time to think about the situation and after gleaning more information about his engorged pension- our tax dollars- I no longer can feel the slightest bit of sadness for him. That heaviness of heart has now turned to the most awful heartburn.

As a Christian I am still sad for him that this is his life, just as I am for any human being that gets caught up in the darkness of this world. Though it may not seem as though his consequences are just, in time it will catch up to him, just as things always catch up to all of us. The only real question is will he make things right here in his mortal life, and truly change his ways, or will his ultimate consequences catch up with him in the here-after? Only time will tell. For his sake, I truly pray it is in this life.

If Anthony Weiner is truly sorry for his actions, a great way to pay retribution to the American people is to forfeit his hefty pension. I know, that is laughable to even think it, much less suggest it! That will never happen!  And sadly, we have become so complacent that it will not phase us at all.

Weiner is his own Wurst Enemy

Okay, so Obama just lost his Weiner. Big deal. It’s not like it was an isolated incident. In fact, several years ago the Rev. (and I use that term loosely) Jessie Jackson said “I want to cut his nuts off.” Beans and Wienies—some foods just naturally go together. I mean, in a perfect world you could crack open a pineapple and cottage cheese would spill out. But we are stuck here on planet Earth and we’re going to have to get our protein from cheap sausage instead—hold the small curd cottage cheese.

After enduring several weeks of public (drop the “l” and the context is actually quite a bit more accurate) humiliation the Weiner resigns from Congress at a senior center, which leads us to the subject of this entirely too long run-on sentence—where do old Weiners go to die?

Anthony Weiner

Normal people, after suffering the disgrace of twittered pulled pork, would crawl into the deepest hole they could find and drown their sorrows in caramelized onions and sauerkraut. But this Weiner has no shame. So where did this Weiner go to die? The Hamptons, of course! Where else would a Weiner go that likes to toot his own horn? They don’t call it Long Island for nothing! The New York City media, lead by the New York Post, tracked Brooklyn’s version of Abe Froman (the sausage king of Chicago in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off) to a King Kullen grocery store in Manorville, Long Island just a few hours after his nationally-televised resignation announcement. So there was Weiner, with Huma at his side, singing fifties doo-wop love songs under his breath while flinging chicken and salad into a shopping cart. I know there’s gotta be a joke in there somewhere about Weiners choking chickens. I can’t think of it now, but if I remember it I will be sure to share! I’ll take roasted Weiners for $600, Alex!

It’s not like Weiner is going to starve to death now that he is losing his $174,000 Congressional salary. After all, he still has a sense of Huma and Huma gets a fancy paycheck from the State Department, courtesy of the HildaBeast. What’s more, Larry Flynt recognizes real talent when he sees it (for that matter, we’ve all seen it) and has offered the left-leaning Weiner a shot at an internet communications career unfettered by morals at a starting salary of $200,000 a year. Poor little Weiner.

Notice how libs never feel shame? You name the sexual perversion and the libs are right there leading the charge into Sodom and Gomorrah. Oral sex in the Oval Office? Check! Cross Dressing? Check! Gender Reassignment? Check! Bestiality? Check! Voyeurism? Check! Pedophilia? Check! Paraphilia? Check! Bigamy? Check! Running a male homosexual prostitution ring in a home where your roomie is a Congressman? Check! Tweeting your meat? Check! And Double-Check!

Liberals have an agenda and that is to tear down every part of society that stands for freedom, the rule of law, morality, personal responsibility, and belief in God. Weiner is a field commander of the leftist troops (or would that be trollops?) in the war against decency. Weiner, like most liberals, seeks to define deviancy downward. The real shame in his online antics is that he has opened a window to his soul and having peeked inside, we have beheld the real Weiner. This isn’t conjecture. He has confessed to it. He has admitted that the accusations are true.

The real danger to all of the sexual perversions promulgated by the liberals is that they destroy families. Just take a look at the large cities run by liberals. Detroit. East Saint Louis. Chicago. Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, etc. We find fathers abandoning their children and their wives in record numbers. We find latchkey kids. We find high levels of marital separations and divorce. We find single mothers struggling to care for themselves and their children in a world of poverty and welfare because the men, who aren’t acting like men, have run away from their family responsibilities. We find Hillary Clinton’s misguided mindset that “it takes a village” when it reality all it takes are a mother and a father working together to lead their families and raise their children.

There is now a branch of scholarship that examines the politics of family destruction. And what destroys families? Liberalism! The family is the most fundamental unit of society. And that is what the liberals are attacking. They know if they can destroy families that they will win the war. They know that if they can destroy the love parents naturally feel for their children that big government will be the only place people can run to for safety. Cradle to grave Big Brother is what it is all about for the leftists. The destruction of nuclear families is actually part of the liberals’ political platform. That is why abortion is such a big deal to liberals. Murder the children and the family is destroyed.

Angry, bitter, vocal, activist Weiners are exactly the type of people the left needs in order to destroy society as we know it. What will Weiner do next? None of us know exactly what job title he will end up with, but we all know it will end up somehow as a Community Organizer. Now where have we heard that term before? Does that ring a bell? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller? Community Organizer is nothing more than a code phrase for radical activism—Social terrorism, for lack of a better term. Weiner fits the job description for the liberal agenda.

This Weiner will rise again.

And we will be there when he does and will send his meat packing because his mask has forever been removed and we all see him for what he is—For what he has admitted he is. Two days in therapy at an undisclosed location hasn’t changed Weiner at all. For all we know, his “therapy” could have been simply an orientation session for his next gig. Time will tell.

The politics of family destruction has been perfected by the leftists, communists, socialists, and liberals in America. But the chickens have come home to roost. Weiner may well have destroyed his own family as a result of his hormonally supercharged quest to tweet his meat. What goes around comes around, Weiner.

Wickedness never was happiness (you’d be surprised to know where that phrase originated), Weiner. You will spend the rest of your life kicking against the pricks, Weiner—only to ultimately discover that you have been kicking against yourself. Your radical liberalism is your personal downfall, Mr. Weiner. You are your own wurst enemy.
