Alan Grayson: racist liar

Yuck it up, you pond scum excrement. You accuse racism (among other outrageous lies in this short email) with absolutely no evidence at all. So you are the racist, you pathetic loser. Shut your hate hole. (image and article via Weasel Zippers).

Rep. Alan Grayson

Liars: Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski

I doubt these MSNBC lying propagandists feel any shame whatsoever, even though they’ve now been busted (hat tip Right Scoop).

Charles Joseph “Joe” Scarborough, liar

Mika Emilie Leonia Brzezinski, liar

Joe responded after the doctored clip with a fake laugh outburst, hands completely covering and rubbing his face, while he muttered “Sweet Jesus” in feigned embarrassment for Romney. Mika offered a patronizing fake apology: “Sorry. I’m sorry. I shouldn’t be so hard on him [Romney].” Both showed outward discomfort in these responses, unable to look into the camera while they lamely attempted to bolster the lie.

willful neglect of Israel

As Jeffrey Goldberg reports at the Atlantic, the Obama Administration continues to slight our dear ally Israel exactly when fortitude is called for. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appears completely fed up. Can we blame him or the Israelis?

Mr. President, your treatment of Israel has been shameful.

I stand firmly for Israel, and I am ashamed that my country has ignored the call under Obama’s direction. I pray we correct this injustice soon.

Desperate? Guilty as charged.

Here’s a timely excerpt from the outstanding headline article over at American Thinker today by Geoffrey P. Hunt.  “Yes, we are desperate”:

Desperate to rescue a nation quickly devolving into an ungovernable economic catastrophe.  Desperate to repudiate a culture of  institutionalized dependency, where class envy substitutes for sweat equity.  Desperate to reclaim a society where individual achievement and initiative are admired, not punished.  Desperate to restore common decency in political discourse, where ideas triumph over ad hominems.  Desperate to avoid the “Road to Serfdom,” a looming certainty if Obama’s legacy prevails.

Root for Tony

Lloyd Marcus is rooting for the investor next door at American Thinker today. I’m with you, Lloyd. Please tell Tony there are a lot of us out here rooting for him, and please keep us posted on his progress.

Lloyd Marcus

Also, if you aren’t familiar with Lloyd, you’re missing one of my favorite American Thinker authors. Subscribe to Lloyd’s Facebook page, follow @LloydMarcus on Twitter, and read his blog. I just put his book on the top of my “to read” list. Go Lloyd, go Tony!

safety net, my foot

Mark Levin welcomed Senator Jeff Sessions (AL) onto his July 19th show. Senator Sessions is currently investigating the Bush administration’s removal of the food stamp citizenship requirement in the early 2000’s. What floored me was Senator Sessions’ point that $800 billion has been torched on food stamps in the past 10 years.

Do-gooders call this a “safety net” (image hat tip tracasseur.com).  You and I get the bill at the point of a gun.

So I flat out don’t want to hear this “safety net” rot from you bleeding hearts. ~100 million taxpaying Americans paid ~$8,000 each for food stamps alone over the past decade?   And that’s only one out of umpteen wasteful Federal programs.  That is outrageously abusive spending that should insult all hardworking Americans.

Are you terrible at math?

Hair on fire about Mitt’s tax returns?  Let me help you out:  Mitt has earned millions, $0 direct impact on you.  Obama has stolen & wasted trillions of your grandchildren’s yet earned money.  So Obama is very literally a million times worse, and infinitely worse if you have an ounce of intellectual honesty.

In Dependence Day – contrasting eras

I highly recommend this timely, intellectually honest July 4th piece, by Bill Frezza (hat tip Frezza for the title of this post), via my good friend Jim Brown.  It finishes as follows:

If we were still a nation capable of shame with enough intellectual integrity to call things as they are, if we hadn’t debauched our language as badly as our currency, if we had the courage to look in the mirror and see how woefully we have squandered our Founders’ legacy, this Fourth of July would be a day not of celebration but of atonement

Give some thought to what we have lost as we mark another In Dependence Day. May providence have mercy on our nation, lest we end up getting what we deserve.

You’ll forgive me if I was in no fireworks-n-barbecue mood yesterday.  I decided instead to mark the day by reading the full text of the Declaration of Independence with my kids (hat tip Hillsdale and Levin for the idea). The document was signed by their great-great…(I’m not sure how many greats at the moment) grandfather, Thomas Nelson, Jr., from the Colony of Virginia. Nelson meant that part about “we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor”, as he later gave the American artillery permission to fire upon his own house, which was used as a British headquarters during the siege of Yorktown (Sept-Oct 1781).

Whether your family history makes you a “new” or “old” American… doesn’t matter. Read, understand, and cherish the reasons behind the founding of our great country. Share the history with your kids and grandkids. Atone for your contribution to our modern complacency towards our dear Republic. Then dust yourself off, pick yourself up by your bootstraps, and get to work contributing your piece of the long term solution. It will take decades, so buck up.

176 years ago yesterday

Thanks to my Mom, who reminded me that James Madison died on June 28, 1836, at his home in Montpelier, Virginia, only 3.4 miles (as the Whip-poor-will flies) away from the house in which I grew up.

Father of the Constitution

176 years later to the day, the Supreme Court of the United States dealt his beloved foundational achievement a crippling blow.

to my dear friends

To those of you who aren’t already hopelessly in the tank for an avowed hard leftist temporary President/tyrant of this great nation, I pen this tough love plea. In response to this morning’s disastrous, indefensible decision by the Supreme Court, I’ve noticed a theme repeated in several locations. Something to the too little, too late effect of “I don’t usually share my political thoughts online, but…”

…and I ask rhetorically, how’s that approach working out for our dear nation? I’m sorry to point out the obvious, but your politeness and social graces have played out quite conveniently for aggressive leftist ideologues. As an expression of their gratitude towards you, you’re derided as a racist, homophobic, xenophobic, teabagging, women-hating, evil rich hundred-thousandaire bigot hobbit (ah, don’t mention it, you’re most welcome).

Back to those of you in the leftist tank, who permit your “leaders” boundless leeway in these (and endless other) destructive means: start working on that explanation to your grandchildren. Your creative writing skills remain sorely inadequate for the eventuality. Good luck in shouldering that burden. My fellow patriots and I will not carry it for you.
