Mitt’s Gall, Newt’s Baggage

Mitt’s Gall, Newt’s Baggage

 

The Two Front-Runners for GOP

There can be no argument that the 2011 incarnation of Mitt Romney, the candidate, is not a far better candidate than the version that ran in 2008, and as if to punctuate the point, Mitt’s campaign has come out with the first direct salvo of the season against Obama-the-incumbent.

The surprise of the move is not in the hubristic nature of such presumptuousness –Gingrich, after all, has made it clear that the two are rivals and not “opponents” — but in the aggressiveness of it. And it’s already drawing howls of protest from Obama’s camp and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) as a whole, claiming that the ad is misleading.

Romney’s ad, which ran today in New Hampshire to coincide with Obama’s visit, could legitimately be labelled “sleight of hand”, but it nevertheless suggests a basic truth: if Obama’s campaign keeps talking about the economy, he will lose. The ad uses Obama’s own words from the 2008 campaign against John McCain, but Obama was quoting a McCain staffer at the time. From the Daily News:

At one point, Obama is heard saying “If we keep talking about the economy, we’re going to lose.”

Although it sounds [sic] Obama is talking about his chances of winning in 2012, the then-Senator was actually quoting an aide from Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign in 2008.

How fitting it is, then, that Newt Gingrich shares the lead with Romney.

Gingrich knows a thing or two about misleading ads, himself a victim of creative editing in a time when the technology was not nearly what it is today. As Speaker of the House in 1995, Gingrich was leading the fight against the last Democrat President’s attempt to inflict National health care on Americans and, as usual, the leftist sycophants struck back hard, albeit deceitfully.

As Bill Clinton was trying valiantly to implement the signature plan of his wife, First Lady Hillary Clinton, for health care reform, Gingrich was leading the opposition and gave a speech on the matter in 1995 to a Blue Cross audience. His words were selected in part and used to demonize him in what has turned out to be a most effective way. I know people to this day who still harbor a deep hatred for the man based on a lie.

It was the infamous “wither on the vine” faux-quote”, in which the left allegedly caught the right wing Speaker admitting that the Republicans wanted to kill Medicare. In 1996, during the re-election campaign of Bill Clinton, the AFL-CIO ran an ad with Newt’s “own words” saying, “Now we don’t get rid of it in round one because we think that’s politically smart and we don’t think that’s the right way to go through a transition. But we believe it’s going to wither on the vine.”

But, as I pointed out in 2009, the quote was not in the full context of Gingrich’s speech. Here’s what he actually said, and meant:

“What do you think the health care financing administration is? It’s a centralized command bureaucracy. It’s everything we’re telling Boris Yeltsin to get rid of. Now we don’t get rid of it in round one because we don’t think that’s politically smart and we don’t think that’s the right way to go through a transition. But we believe it’s going to wither on the vine because we think people are going to voluntarily leave it. Voluntarily.”

Voters will do well to remember that it wasn’t Medicare that Republicans wanted to kill, it was government-run health care, much as it still is today. And as Gingrich moves closer toward the nomination, also remember this when he begins to take on that which the Democrats inflicted on us when they controlled it all. Whomever ends up with the GOP nomination, repeal of Obamacare will be a top priority, for it is that route which will cause the most immediate impact on our foul economy.

It is also pertinent to note Gingrich’s use of the word “voluntarily”. Think of how many of Obama’s own cronies have already filed for waivers from his health care monstrosity. Even people who view this president favorably have already begun preemptively leaving it, voluntarily.

If the Democrats want to whine their way through what is slated to be a particularly nasty campaign, let them, but the Republicans must be prepared to hit them with all of Mitt’s gall and the full weight of Newt’s baggage.

Preoccupied “Zoo Creatures”

Preoccupied “Zoo Creatures”

 

Gambling’s “Zoo Creatures”

What started out in a privately owned park in New York’s Manhattan as a day of protest has turned into a cottage industry unto itself, thanks in large part to a media machine sired by 1960’s Vietnam War protesters; aging hippies who relish unrest and detest any form of “establishment”, a particular irony that should be self-evident.

WOR Radio’s morning talk show host, John Gambling, parks his car and walks past Zuccotti Park some mornings when it’s still dark, and he’s seen the vermin encamped there with his own eyes. It was Gambling who dubbed this sorry lot the “Zoo Creatures” on his popular show, and the moniker has stuck, at least locally. Even some of the inmates have noticed, holding up signs in rebuttal.

But the movement didn’t stay in a small parcel of land in posh Manhattan for long, quickly spreading to urban areas across the nation, again aided by those who report such things with giddy glee, and the explicit approval of pampered celebrities who — despite lifestyles most certainly defined as those of the one percent — find themselves compelled to go slumming every now and then, just to show how “real” they are. (Susan Sarandon made a cameo appearance in Manhattan a few weeks ago on her way to her flight to Italy, popping out of a chauffeur-driven limousine like Punxutawney Phil long enough to show some “solidarnosc”).

As this movement grows bigger and decidedly badder, it is still revered by the left even as the TEA Party movement is continually vilified, yet to date, there have been no arrests and no reports of misconduct at any TEA Party rallies since they’ve been operating. I won’t belabor the point about the TEA Party, however, simply because the only “story” there is one of harmony and patriotic indignation over what has become of our great nation. Rally locations are routinely left in pristine condition and as mentioned above, there has been no reason for a police presence at all, other than to protect the demonstrators from outside mischief.

Occupy Oakland Disorderly Conduct

So let’s now take a closer look at how this beloved leftist phenomenon — the Occupy Movement — has fared thus far. Five D’s sum it all up rather neatly: Disorderly, Destruction, Depravity, Disease, and Death. To help keep things in perspective — and as the “occupiers” repeatedly insist that none of the events are related to their movement — try to imagine any of the following incidents happening at a TEA Party rally, and the ensuing mainstream media reaction.

As Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi fretted over the “rhetoric” of the TEA Party, inferring that it was a dangerous movement, but recently said of the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement, “God bless them”. Yet the occupiers have had numerous clashes with police and have displayed a complete disregard for authority. (The infamous defecating on a police car comes to mind). The occupiers have destroyed storefronts, smashed windows and littered every park upon which they have squatted.

Reports have come in from around the nation of rampant drug use, public acts of sex and general lewdness, and sexual assault. Throw in a little pedophilia for good measure; in early October, 24-year-old Richard Armstrong was arrested for sexual assault of a 14-year-old runaway girl at the Occupy Dallas encampment. There have beed several reports of sexual assault in the New York version of Occupy and another in Cleveland.

There also the issue of theft among the protesters, as in the woman who reported that her $5,500 Macintosh laptop computer was stolen. (One wonders which percentage of the population even owns such an expensive rig).

Next up is Disease, which is becoming more prevalent in the filthy conditions in which these people are living. In Atlanta, the Occupy base has been beset with reported cases of tuberculosis, and in New York’s Zuccotti Park, protesters are contracting what’s been dubbed “Zuccotti Lung” at an alarming rate. According to NBC New York:

With little sleep in cold conditions, cigarettes and drinks being passed from mouth to mouth, and few opportunities to wash hands, Zuccotti Park may now just be the best place to catch respiratory viruses, norovirus (also known as the winter vomiting virus) and tuberculosis, according to one doctor.

The damp clothing and cardboard signs wet with rain are also breeding grounds for mold. Some protesters are urinating in bottles and leaving food trash discarded throughout the campground, providing further opportunities for nastiness.

It is frightening to think what may happen when these people return to the real world, possibly infecting the rest of us in the process.

And finally, we bring you Death, which has been on the rise at these Occupy camps. In Salt Lake City, Utah, a man in his 40’s was found dead in his tent. Authorities believe the cause was a combination of drug use and carbon monoxide from a space heater in his tent. In Vermont, a military veteran committed suicide with a bullet to the brain, and in Oakland, California, a man was murdered by gunfire. And still, every news account I have read tries to distance these events from the movement itself.

Rules Were Not Meant To
Be Broken

It is time to disband these not-so-merry men (and women) before any more damage is done. I would recommend a period of quarantine prior to any of them being released to the public, for safety and health concerns.

This is no longer about the right to peaceably assemble or petitioning for a governmental redress of grievances. It’s now about the rights of others  and the rule of law. Perhaps to best describe what this has devolved into it would be prudent to add two more D’s to the mix: Disaster and Disgrace.

Five Day Warning

Five Day Warning

 

It Was Telegraphed

Giving a speech in 2008, just five days before Election night, candidate Barack Hussein Obama uttered his final warning to America; “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming America!” That was the moment that punctuated all of the previous warnings from the legions of bloggers like myself, and the more in depth probings of the few remaining news outlets that have not been co-opted by the State.

In what may be considered a strange coincidence, it was the day before Halloween when Obama uttered those words, and the fright has not ended since.

In the interval between that speech and the night that voters actually pulled the levers — or impregnated their chads, depending on geography — we still had time and validation in our favor to save this nation. Sadly, that opportunity knocked until its knuckles bled.

Once those ballots were cast, and Obama was elected, it was like Sauron had finally obtained the ring. All of the preparations were carefully and meticulously taken, all the pieces were in place, and the “fundamental transformation” was now just a matter of flipping the proverbial switch.

Since the 1950’s, after the socialists and communists failed to do what Obama is now credited with, the methodology was changed to one of subterfuge and covert planning. My grandfather used to warn me again and again that the communists would take us without firing a single shot, and he was right.

Leftists went below the radar and began subverting our young through the Board of Education, molding the minds of our children into idiots who only knew the greatness of the agenda. Facts and history be damned, only the lies of the State are truth. Don’t believe it? The Right Scoop has a very telling video in which a former Soviet subject encounters some of the products of public education. That video can be seen here.

The Idol of “Occupy”

To the people occupying Wall Street, Ronald Reagan was a villain and Che Guevara is a hero. And North Korea is a wonderful place with full employment and high wages. The former resident of the now defunct U.S.S.R. tried to tell these people of the true horrors of living in a communist state, but they scoffed at him. “Stop telling the truth!”, they seemed to say.

George Orwell once said:

In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.

I guess that makes the TEA Party truly revolutionary, because Washington, D.C. and our schools are cesspools of deceit that have overflowed into the streets where protesters dwell.

Through all of this, America still stands, albeit while clinging precariously to the corner ropes on wobbly knees. We haven’t hit the canvass yet, however, and we now find ourselves with 369 days — considerably more than the five Obama gave us three years ago — to make amends and set this ship right. Opportunity’s knuckles have since healed; let’s not make it knock unheeded this time around.

Unlike the poor dupes in the video above — who wouldn’t believe the experience of another — we have but to look around us in our own personal experience to see the product of socialism. What you see is just a drop on the tip of the tongue. Do you want an entire mouthful of this? For those old enough to remember, compare what you see today to the days of Reagan, and begin thinking about your decision a year from now.

Herman Cain Called It: Here Come the WiFi Nooses

Herman Cain Called It: Here Come the WiFi Nooses

 

Here we go again

Brace yourselves for some heightened hypocrisy and delirious demagoguery, because the liberal press has decided once again to engage in what Herman Cain referred to as a “high tech lynching”. Examples of hypocrisy will abound, from the sudden feigned outrage by the defenders of Bill Clinton over an allegation of “inappropriate behavior” — a rather subjective term, especially when compared to the hard evidence of a semen stain — to the revived curiosity about a candidate’s past, something that saw it’s inception only after Obama had won the nomination.

Remember how incurious was the media concerning all of the mystery that swirled around then-candidate Obama, and compare that to the legions of reporters who descended on a small Alaska town to go dumpster diving in pursuit of whatever garbage could be found on Sarah Palin. And of course, never forget the treatment of Clarence Thomas during his nomination process to the Supreme Court.

That treatment, and the instant notoriety it afforded Anita Hill, is about to be recreated in all its ugliness, just as Herman Cain prophetically predicted, only this time, it will be served with a heaping side dish of audacity. It will be interesting — to eminently downplay the actual adjective — to see the most ardent defenders of Bill Clinton in the aftermath of the Monica Lewinsky affair (pardon the pun) suddenly and hysterically attempt to convince voters that Herman Cain is unfit to run for president, especially when based on speculation. Keep in mind that that speculation concerns a rather ambiguous charge, as well.

Politico’s crack investigative team has “unearthed” some charges brought against Herman Cain back in the 1990’s which ironically coincide with Bill and Monica’s woes. But one must wonder again; where were these investigators in 2007 and 2008, when Obama was running for president, and his past seemed obviously murky? Surely the team members couldn’tall fit into the dumpsters of Wasilla. Maybe the rest were all on line at said dumpsters.

What we’re really seeing here is page one of the leftist’s playbook regarding winning elections. Just as the media and the open primaries process herded John McCain toward the nomination in 2008, so are they trying to foist Romney upon us. But Herman Cain is not about to lay down and let that happen without a fight, so now the left — afraid that Cain may be more serious than they originally believed — will run him down and flatten him.

Once that mission is accomplished, and the mission of nominating Romney is complete, they will train their sights on Romney. Some newspaper is probably already sitting on a story just waiting for the appropriate time to unveil it to hurt Romney. That is precisely what the New York Times tried to do to McCain after they had propped him up on their pages like a bowling pin. That backfired on the Times because the story turned out to be false. It was a brazen attempt at king making, however.

It must also be remembered that it wasn’t until after McCain selected Sarah Palin that the attacks became more virulent. It was perfect because the other news outlets that also praised McCain were now free to attack his campaign through Palin without appearing as two-faced as the Times had.

So now, as Herman Cain becomes ever more frightening to the liberal establishment, he will suffer the slings and arrows of vitriol and viciousness both in an attempt to run him out of the campaign and get back to the task of building their rickety pedestal for Mitt Romney. The media doesn’t care who gets hurt in the process, especially Cain’s wife who will undoubtedly be peppered with questions when she eventually joins the candidate on the trail.

As for Politico, they claim to have verified the identities of Cain’s alleged accusers but, conveniently, the names are being withheld. So Cain was right after all in his prediction of the attacks to come. As Jeffrey Lord of American Spectator puts it, High Tech Lynching: The Sequel Starring Herman Cain. Perfect.

Barack and Mahmoud: Two Peas in a Pod

 

Barackmadinejad

Were Barack Obama and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad separated at birth? That was my first thought when conceiving this piece, but realizing that they were born nearly five years apart, that would render the theory invalid. However, considering the myriad relatives of Obama that have popped up around the globe since his nomination for president, there is still reason to believe that the two could be brothers, if only ideologically.

While Ahmadinejad is president of the Islamist State of Iran, run in actuality by the “spiritual” leader in the Ayatollah, Obama has been working extra hours in the expansion of Iran’s boundaries or, at the very least, an expansion of sister states nearby. (In the Islamist world, I suppose the term “sister states” would, by necessity, be changed to “brother states”. Theological misogyny, and all that jazz).

Since his inauguration, Barack Hussein Obama has been campaigning for the rise of Islam in the Middle East and the decline of Western influence. His speech in Cairo in 2009 was an open admission that America had been “arrogant” in the past and must now atone for its insolence, while his foreign policy has been to relegate our dearest friend and ally in the region — Israel — to the ash heap.

It is no mistake that the one man who has been instrumental in the relative peace that has lasted for the past 30 years in the Middle East, Hosni Mubarak, was treated as any of Obama’s aides who didn’t toe his line. Mubarak and these aides all bear the same tread marks on their torsos as a result of Obama’s bus, which they were unceremoniously tossed beneath when they proved an impediment to his agenda. Thus began the so-called “Arab Spring”.

Oh, the glee here at home, in our doe-eyed media, as the prospect of a “democratic uprising” began to unfold in Egypt. Why, those poor, oppressed people are finally going to experience freedom once Mubarak is gone! The problem is, no one was complaining about oppression in Egypt for much of those 30 years as they were already free to move about the country and enjoy a somewhat secular lifestyle. Nevertheless, Obama had made his pronouncement: “Mubarak must go!”

OK, so maybe it was a foreign policy blunder on the nubile Obama’s part, one that might be excusable, I suppose. After all, Jimmy Carter inadvertently got Anwar Sadat killed, which ushered in the era of Mubarak, so what’s one more mistake by an American president? Considering what is poised to fill the void in Egypt this time around, it’s a big mistake.

*Special aside: Consider the current angst over the foreign policy experience of a candidate like Herman Cain, who actually loves America and freedom.

Not long before the “Arab Spring”, however, there was another uprising in the Middle East, this time by a decidedly more pro-Western contingent; the people of Iran. In June of 2009, Iran held its presidential elections. In the aftermath, the people felt that they had been duped and began protesting the outcome, for which they were promptly and brutally suppressed. The Obama administration’s reaction was initially one of condemnation combined with support for the people of Iran, but quickly and “masterfully” withdrew for fear of appearing to “meddle” in Iran’s internal affairs.

So while the Iranian people were being crushed by a brutal regime, Obama turned his back on them. I still maintain that — especially now in retrospect — it was because Iran was already a solidly Islamist State and needed no prodding from this version of Washington, D.C. There was much work to be done, and much “regional organizing” to accomplish.

With Egypt now creeping closer to Shar’ia law under the rule of the Muslim Brotherhood, Obama doubled down on the unrest in Libya. As he proved with Mubarak, countries such as Egypt and now Libya were fertile grounds for “meddling” and, in the case of Libya, even military intervention. Perceptions of Western meddling were no longer a concern. The march to the Caliphate had begun.

I can’t even imagine Jimmy Carter — a man who bears virtually no resemblance to anyone I admire — saying that the Muslim call to prayer “is the most beautiful sound I ever heard”, as Barack Hussein Obama did. Never could I believe that an American president would express such contempt for the Bible while quoting liberally from the Qur’an. Yet here we stand today with an alleged “leader” who leads nothing at home aside from rapid decline,  but guides the advance of Islam abroad, all but ignoring the country already most firmly ensconced in its tenets.

Indistinguishable

Barack and Mahmoud…two peas in the same religious pod. As Coptics get run out of Egypt by the thousands and Christian churches burn, Obama and our giddy media gleefully anticipate the coming elections in that formerly all Coptic country and mention not the burning churches. The “party” likely to gain the most legislative seats in the new Egyptian government is the Muslim Brotherhood.

Sad that such a country, once a peaceful yet strategically critical one in the region, will now fall to the enemies of liberty and peace. Egypt once was all Coptic for two hundred years, from the 4th to the 6th centuries under Roman rule. It wasn’t until the 7th century — and the birth of Islam — that that all changed.

Perhaps that is yet another similarity between Mahmoud and Barack Hussein; they both cling to 7th century ideology and the rule of Islam.

Of course, this is just a theory.

Solyndra on Wheels

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2011

Solyndra on Wheels

 

The Federal Government’s
Latest Wager on “Green” Tech

Here we go again. The uber-liberal White House — hell bent on forcing allegedly planet-saving products down our throats — is using our tax dollars not to protect the borders and our citizens, not to provide for the general welfare of our nation, nor to establish a more prosperous nation. No, they are throwing our cash at supposedly “green” companies in an infantile attempt to save the planet.

It’s not going so well thus far.

After tossing $535 million at Solyndra, the solar panel company in California, and losing it after that company declared bankruptcy, we were told that it was a gamble, a bet. This, despite the sirens wailing all around them from industry experts who said it was like betting on a lame horse to show in the fifth race. Here’s hoping that Congressional investigations into that fiasco yield some results, because it turns out that the Solyndra executives were pretty heavy contributors to camp Obama.

The newest case of Fisker Automotive bears some striking similarities to that of Solyndra, with an added twist; it seems our government lent a slightly smaller amount of cash, but this time to a green company that will outsource its production facilities.

Fisker Automotive raked in $529 million from the Obama administration last year to build electric cars in the United States, even dragging Vice President Joe Biden on a publicized tour of a vacant GM plant in Delaware (his home state as a senator), where the Veep beamed about the potential job creation in that district. Fisker was going to fire up the old building and start pumping out electric cars that would make Americans feel good about their carbon footprints once behind the wheel of Fisker cars. (The carbon footprint of these cars is a myth we’ll examine later).

The loan was first announce in 2009, but two years later the company’s founder, Henrik Fisker, determined that there was ” no contract manufacturer in the U.S. that could actually produce our vehicle”. “They don’t exist here”, Fisker said. So the company is building it’s luxury electric sedan in Finland. I guess Finland’s unemployment rate dropped a bit, thanks to the American taxpayers struggling to keep or find a job.

What is particularly galling is Fisker’s words. Are we to believe that a nation that — at the behest of President John F. Kennedy — scrambled to produce a Lunar Excursion Module (LEM) that would land men safely on the moon and get them back to the ship that would ultimately bring them back home to Earth is incapable of building an electric automobile?

Mr. Fisker is being just a trifle disingenuous. The reason, as he cryptically admits, is not that we couldn’t build the product; it’s just that we couldn’t do it for the money he was willing to pay in wages and expenses in the United States. Perhaps the United Auto Workers union (UAW) was one impediment, and perhaps high taxes and constricting EPA regulations were also in the equation. Nevertheless, Fisker had this to say:

“We’re not in the business of failing; we’re in the business of winning. So we make the right decision for the business. That’s why we went to Finland.”

But failing is exactly what has some watchdog groups and industry analysts so spooked. One problem is the fact that the Karma is more than a year late in rolling out. Only 40 have been produced so far, and only two have been delivered. One went to actor Leonardo DeCaprio, which is understandable considering the price tag of $97,000. More are promised soon,according to ABC News , but not many people will be willing to take out a mortgage to buy one. Future sales could lag considerably enough to cause a cash flow problem for Fisker, despite the inexpensive production in Finland.

Another problem with this vehicle — and others like it, electric vehicles that are allegedly environmentally friendly — is that it is not exactly very “green”. This is sure to cause a modicum of embarrassment for one of the venture capital partners steering money into the project; Al Gore. The EPA has given the Karma a miles-per-gallon equivalent (MPGe) rating of 52. Sounds rather impressive until one examines the true fossil fuel consumption needed to make the darned thing go. Thankfully, Warren Meyer of Forbes.com has done the heavy lifting in that regard.

The Karma has a range of 32 miles after which it switches to the gasoline source. In this mode, the car earned an MPG rating of just 20. As Mr. Meyer also points out, the EPA conveniently skipped around a standard set by the Department of Energy (DOE) back in the Clinton administration. Dubbed “well to wheels”, this standard incorporates the fossil fuel consumption required to produce the electricity needed to power cars like the Karma. In determining the MPGe of the Karma, the EPA began their analysis after the first step of electricity creation.

An analogy from Mr’ Meyer’s article:

Lets consider an analogy.  We want to measure how efficiently two different workers can install a refrigerator in a customer’s apartment.  In both cases the customer lives in a fourth floor walkup.  The first installer finds the refrigerator has been left on the street.  He has to spend much of his time struggling to haul the appliance up four flights of stairs.  After that, relatively speaking, the installation is a breeze.  The second installer finds his refrigerator has thoughtfully been delivered right to the customer’s door on the fourth floor.  He quickly brings the unit inside and completes the installation.

So who is a better installer?  If one only looks at the installer’s time, the second person looks orders of magnitude better.  But we know that he is only faster because he offloaded much of the work on the delivery guys.  If we were to look at the total time of the delivery person plus the installer, we’d probably find they were much closer in their productivity.  The same is true of the mileage standards — by the EPA’s metric, the electric vehicle looks much better than the traditional vehicle, but that is only because someone else at the power plant had to do the really hard bit of work that the traditional auto must do itself.  Having electricity rather than gasoline in the tank is the equivalent of starting with the refrigerator at the top rather than the bottom of the stairs.

Mr. Meyer thus concludes that the true MPGe of the Karma is 19. Not very good for the planet after all.

With a price tag beyond the means of most Americans and without the warm, fuzzy feeling of saving the planet, the allure of the Karma, et al, becomes somewhat dull. This could prove to be a problem for the company and ultimately for you, the taxpayer. Are we seeing Solyndra on wheels, then?

Some Movement Comparisons

 

Actions Speak Louder Than Words

As the Occupy Wall Street movement drags on and on, there are the inevitable comparisons to the TEA Party movement by various talking heads both on television and radio. Perhaps the most glaring difference between the two, however, is the way Democrats and the media treat each.

With the TEA Party rallies, the media routinely tried to downplay the size of the crowds, while the Democrats and liberal critics continually try to portray the movement as comprised of white racists, all with virtually no evidence of any such thing. Former Speaker Nancy Pelosi just the other day reiterated the lie that TEA Party activists spit on black congressmen in the aftermath of the health care vote. Meanwhile, Andrew Breitbart is still waving that $100,000 reward for anyone who can provide audio or video evidence of such an event.

In the aftermath of the 9/12 TEA Party event in Washington DC, the only evidence that such a large rally took place was the neatly placed Hefty bags full of trash left near receptacles for parks employees to collect. In contrast, New York City officials averted a potential riot on Friday by postponing a scheduled cleaning of Zuccotti Park in Manhattan, where Occupy Wall Street protesters have been soiling the grounds for the past three weeks. In honor of their perceived “victory”, the protesters promptly began scuffling with police and getting themselves arrested.

There have been no arrests at any TEA Party rallies to date. And as the photo above clearly demonstrates, the TEA Party group reveres the American flag, while the leftist “occupants” see the flag as a canvass for their ridiculous slogans. If one more person tells me that one exercising his “right to desecrate the flag” is patriotic, I may blow an artery.

An Endorsement the
TEA Party would reject

While most clear-thinking Americans support the TEA Party and its smaller government objectives, the Occupy Wall Street movement has just picked up the support of two groups that the TEA Party would flat out reject, despite the claims of the left to the contrary.

Gateway Pundit recently reported that both the American Nazi Party and the Communist Party USA have expressed solidarity with the “occupiers”, with the CPUSA once again aligning themselves with Barack Hussein Obama. The CPUSA endorsed Obama for president in 2008, and Obama is seeking to capitalize on the Occupy movement for his reelection.

We all know that Obama is no fan of America. He’s made that clear by his Forgive Us Our Trespasses Tour shortly after his inauguration. But for him to align himself with a movement that sings songs like “F*** the USA” just speaks volumes about his national fidelity.

Yes, a website named Verum Serum has posted a lovely little video of some Portland Occupants singing the lovely little ditty mentioned above. While participants at TEA Party rallies routinely sing the Star Spangled Banner or listen to Lee Greenwood sing God Bless the U.S.A., the cretins who are now backed by Nazis, Communists and Obama sing of their loathing for our country. The video is below, but be aware that — as incoherent as the “band” appears to be, there is still graphic language involved.

The irony is that they are singing this in the United States of America, where such actions are protected by the very military these sots loathe. I would like to see this band succeed, go on tour, and perform in Iran where they can change the hook line in the song to match the country in which they sing, which is common practice among touring bands. Please, jester-head, go to Tehran and sing F*** the Ayatollah. When your body returns to the blessed USA, we promise to take lots of pictures.

Whenever liberals get their knickers in a wad over having their patriotism questioned, we will always be available to direct them back toward such disgusting displays as this video. Meanwhile, the TEA Party will always love and fight forAmerica.
