Goodbye, Libya


Not a chance, Libya, so long as I live. Never will I look on your people, nor country in any way favourably.

To do that, to the American ambassador. Never forget. Never forgive. And I’m quite aware of the date.

All over a movie?

I am done with trying to understand these “people”.

UPDATE

Yeah, well…

That said…

And the embassy had no Marine protection. What kind of a president would allow that to happen?

UPDATE

It’s funny coz it’s true…

UPDATE

The writing had been on the wall for months – around a year and a half – and yet Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State for the Obama administration expresses surprise.

Pathetic.

And again, the question begs: why didn’t that Embassy have Marine protection??? This is as much an indictment on the Obama administration as it is on Islamic terrorism (19,592 deadly Islamic terrorist attacks since 9/11 and counting JFTR…)

UPDATE

Have a squiz around the internet and we know that shitty video was made by some anonymous charlatan. We know the violence didn’t happen until after it was found, translated, and “promoted” by some Egyptian sheik. We know abhorrent violence has been ignited in Egypt, Libya, Yemen, and Iran.

So what can we deduce from this?

Simple. Those guys over there really hate our guts. Essentially, the Islamic world hates the West.

How can any form of appeasement or compromise possibly work when all it takes is a crap video, and our guys get their corpses paraded around the streets?

Dr Obama (updated)


Obama visits. And then miraculously, conveniently just after, Gifford opens her eyes (about the 11:40 mark), gives a thumbs up, acknowledges her husband (who then acknowledges Michelle).

Hey, maybe she did, but it’s funny how the Left buys this one with not a hint of doubt, yet has quietly backed down from blaming Palin… conveniently after Obama finally instructed not to blame Palin.

A pretty good speech to be honest (nine minutes before he stopped being presidential and, albeit briefly, coughed up a partisan quip)… pity about his policies.

But overall? Good. Very good. Actually, it was really good. Presidential. There’s no denying that.

Palin’s was, too, however, even without the help of such a platform.

A bit more direct, but then again, no one was pointing fingers at Obama.

UPDATE

Watch the two vids? Obama wins hands down. I’ve said for ages Palin needs voice coaching.

UPDATE

Another voice of reason amongst the shrill cries.

Over the last several days conservative bloggers and journalists reacted swiftly and decisively in condemning, subduing, and fighting liberal bloggers and journalists were spreading a false narrative about the shootings in Arizona, and now that that is done (excepting the few liberal bloggers and media members who are just determined to use dead people as props in their little political games), our nation can move on to mourning the fallen and celebrating the lives of those who were killed. In that spirit, I’m going to celebrate with this post Congresswoman’s Gabrielle Giffords commitment to democracy.

There’s more.

Bob Ellis, you are full of it


And yet the Left continue their smear campaign, their futile attempt to blame the Tuscon shooting on anything, anyone, apart from the mentally unstable individual who did it.

The Fox News blondes weren’t yelling as they usually do and the excruciation on their faces as they tried not to mention their acclaimed Fox colleague Sarah Palin (though Gaby Giffords was shown in her cross-hairs before she was shot in the head on Saturday in Tucson) was riveting to behold.

Hey Bob, Obama said to bring a gun to a knife fight. A Republican judge, Bush (Sr) appointed, is dead. Ergo?

No, because anyone with half an atom of logic in their thick skulls knows the Arizona shooting was the work of an unstable individual incited by, if anything, Mein Kapf and the Commie Manifesto.

But even that’s a stretch. Loughner was well known to local police as being a person of interest and his dealings with Gifford date back to 2007.

If anything, the police didn’t do their job but even that’s an unfair call. Sometimes, Bob, shit happens and, shock horror, it’s the fault of the person who did it.

George F. Will

The craving is for banishing randomness and the inexplicable from human experience. Time was, the gods were useful. What is thunder? The gods are angry. Polytheism was explanatory. People postulated causations.

And still do. Hence: The Tucson shooter was (pick your verb) provoked, triggered, unhinged by today’s (pick your noun) rhetoric, vitriol, extremism, “climate of hate.”

Demystification of the world opened the way for real science, including the social sciences. And for a modern characteristic. And for charlatans.

A characteristic of many contemporary minds is susceptibility to the superstition that all behavior can be traced to some diagnosable frame of mind that is a product of promptings from the social environment. From which flows a political doctrine: Given clever social engineering, society and people can be perfected. This supposedly is the path to progress. It actually is the crux of progressivism. And it is why there is a reflex to blame conservatives first.

But isn’t that the mantra of the modern-day Leftist. Everything is always somebody else’s fault. Personal responsibility? Never!

Get a grip, Bob, you old has-been dinosaur.

I’d normally finish there, but let’s have a bit of fun with Bob’s rant.

Talk about the moose in the room. Palin, who may be guilty of ‘encouraging a terrorist act’ is politically finished I would think now, and Donald Trump the automatic Republican front-runner, closely followed by his hair.

Actually, Bob, yours and others’ frenzied responses further highlight something we’ve known for a while; for whatever reason – is it because she’s positive, speaks for the backbone of America? – you guys are super-worried about Palin. The Left has had this weird, creepy, almost pseudo-sexual fetish with Palin ever since McCain picked her out.

That who she represents – humble, decent, hard-working, tax-paying, law-abiding Americans with a healthy respect for the US constitution – somehow ties the Left in knots that is most unbecoming (or is that defining?) of so-called tolerant liberals.

Awww, but why stop there? Ellis, known for his flowery prose, waffles on a bit, then coughs up this chuck o’ Gaia-raping coal.

And Glen Beck may be arrested, or body-searched, or psychiatrically counselled for advocating armed treason so avidly and Mormonism, gadzooks, while he was up.

It’s OK, Bob. Sometimes that gulp of booze when you’re “on fire” (Wait! Did I just incite arson?!?!) can (how do they say it?) increase the desire but diminish the performance. You Ok there, Bob?

Bob’s fine. Just more Leftist mental projections of rounding anyone up who doesn’t agree with them – the classic liberal wet dream.

Hold on! There’s more! Why not round up Rupert Murdoch, too? Who cares if he’s a US citizen?

If Obama wanted to also, he could rescind Rupert Murdoch’s US passport for using his media clout and world-wide microphone to advocate violent solutions to small political differences. Or see him called before a Senate Committee to confess if he is now or ever was a member of the Communist Party (he leaned that way at Oxford in 1948) and why he so wants to kill, torture or sack all humans who disagree with him, and why he sells cigarettes and who are his friends in Red China.

Humour? Hardly.

Don’t the Left just love the idea of rounding people up? Not people who need to be, mind you. Ellis himself is vehemently against the war on terror, but when it comes to discussion of ideas in a free society, Bob’s your head cowboy. By the way, 1948? 1948??

BWAHAHAHAHA!

But here come the steak knives…

A nation that confuses itself with a religion resembles, we pretty soon realise, that brand of schizophrenic who howls ‘I am the Christ!’ then drapes himself in hotel bed-sheets and disrupts the traffic of downtown Jerusalem on Good Friday.

Treating something that isn’t as a religion? Global warming anyone? Keep going, Bob. This is hilarious.

America is not well in its mind.

Speak for yourself, Bob.

On the other hand, he may well be right. It’s full of Leftists after all!

:lol:

Wait! Is that evil Yankee imperialist Coke you're drinking there, Bob?!?!

UPDATE

Via Tim Blair, it turns out Loughner most likely didn’t even pay attention to the media, Left or Right. So surely we can expect a retraction from Bob and the rest of them any day now.

Any day now…

UPDATE II

Like a feather on Jupiter, CNN weighs in on the story. You know the drill; laud Obama (actually, it was a pretty good speech), slam Palin for what was also a very well-measured response to the utterly ludicrous claims against her.

Palin hits back at media bias


Via Andrew Bolt, the MSM is all too ready to mock her, but none too ready when Obama or others do the same.

Post includes Palin’s excellent rebuttal.

“He just has a different belief system than most Americans.”


Poor Obi.

And now Palin thinks she can take him.

UPDATE

Via Iowahawk, Obi’s presidency in a nutshell.

Party like it’s 1773??? What a dummy!


The Left mocks Palin. Doesn’t she mean 1776??? What happened in 1773??? Idiot!

Oh wait.

UPDATE

Iowahawk goes to town.

The Republicans need the Tea Party


So says Sarah Palin.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on Monday warned Republican Party leaders that if they do not adhere to the message of the tea party, the GOP may be “through.”

She’s probably right. What do any American readers out there think?

The rise of the Palin Brand


Gabriel Sherman at New York Magazine has an in-depth look into the cash and ratings magnet that is Sarah Palin in 2010. If she’s on Fox, their ratings go up. Likewise for Saturday Night Live. And the millions keep pouring in.

The numbers are staggering. Over the past year, Palin has amassed a $12 million fortune and shows no sign of slowing down. Her memoir has so far sold more than 2.2 million copies, and Palin is planning a second book with HarperCollins. This January, she signed a three-year contributor deal with Fox News worth $1 million a year, according to people familiar with the deal. In March, Palin and Burnett sold her cable show to TLC for a reported $1 million per episode, of which Palin is said to take in about $250,000 for each of the eight installments.

It’s certainly been a turnaround since her debt ridden days following the 2008 US election campaign. Finally, she decided to do what so many others were doing – cashing in on the Palin Brand. Whether it’s headlining Tea Party rallies, going on Fox, being bagged at MSNBC, being the star attraction at fundraisers, or giving yet another public speech, Palin is a fixture on the US political landscape that’s not going away any time soon.

As for a 2012 presidential run? I’ll have a bet each way. It’s too early to tell. Regardless, if she does decide to run, she’ll have amassed a considerable war chest by then, let alone what she could generate in election donations. It would be akin to what Obama managed. But will she necessarily run on a GOP ticket? I wouldn’t be surprised if she did run, but as an independent.

The Desperate Left


A bunch of Lefties at the California State University have sifted through Sarah Palin’s trash to find out the details of her speaking engagements contract, handed it to a local Democrat pollie, who dutifully handed it to their propaganda department the media. And now Democrat California Attorney General, Jerry Brown is investigating.

Gee, nothing desperate going on there.

And as for Palin’s speeches, shock horror, she makes some decent coin from them – and with a few perks thrown in. We’re talking $100,000 bucks a speech.

OMG, it’s “embarrassing” writes Tim Reid at The Times and reprinted in The Australian.

Yes, it is. Even I’m embarrassed that the Left is getting so desperate nowadays. Noteable also is that the Australian places Reid’s article in the “news” section.

Bollocks his article is “news”.

SARAH Palin faced embarrassing revelations yesterday about lavish demands that she makes before speaking engagements, including first-class air travel or large private jets, suites in hotels and even bendable straws in her water bottles.

The latest revelation will do little to damage her reputation among the party’s grassroots activists, who view her as a straight-talking hero, but it undercuts her claim to be a down-to-earth “hockey mom” who is fighting for ordinary working Americans.

Sounds more like Leftist opinion to me, and a media beat-up, Chris Mitchell.

Anyway, let’s just have a look at who earns the big bucks for speaking engagements. There’s Al Gore who gets over $250,000 to peddle speculation. Australia’s Tim Flannery get’s $50,000 to do the same.

And here’s a tidy list from the website whose company drew up Palin’s contract.

The following receive upwards of $40,000 per engagement. Is Palin’s deal out of the ordinary?

At least she doesn’t need a teleprompter


Robert Gibbs, you snide idiot.

WHITE House spokesman Robert Gibbs has read out a shopping list scribbled on his palm, lampooning conservative darling Sarah Palin, who used a similar trick to remember her political script.

You see, anyone who knows anything about debating or public speaking (I did both, even winning a comp once along with winning many a debate) knows all about palm cards. They list your key points but they are simply very basic notes reminding one of well-rehearsed points.

Not being in sentences, this allows one to establish real eye-contact with one’s audience, not this fake teleprompter crap that Obama does.

FAIL.



UPDATE

Natualfake has more on this scandal!

This is, of course, exactly like President Obama’s dependence on teleprompters for the entire text of his speeches. A total dependence which makes the President look like an especially elegant bobble-head doll observing a ping-pong match.
