SCOTUS Has Decided (probably)

The Supreme Court held its customary post hearing vote today, concerning Obamacare. The nine members met by themselves - no aides, no reporters, no recorders, etc. The members talk amongst themselves, then vote. After the vote, responsibilities for writing the opinions are dispensed. The next we will hear of it will probably be in June, when the decision is announced. The Court's custom is to not leak any details or hints of what that decision is prior to the public announcement. It will be interesting to see if they hold to that, given the enormity of this issue.

This vote is non-binding - a member can change their vote anytime prior to the public announcement. However, rarely does a vote change actually occur, if we are to believe what those 'in the know' describe as the history of the process.

The pundits have been all over the place over the past few days. Mainstream media have been in a panic since the first of three days of oral presentations. Obama's arguments and inability to defend the law have liberals pulling their hair out, predicting doom (for their side). Conservative pundits seem to be cautiously optomistic - questioning by 5 of the justices seemed to indicate they had severe doubts concerning the law.

We won't know one way or another for a couple of months.

What has been universally agreed upon by neutral and conservative pundits is that the 4 Democrat justices are lockstep in their support of Obama. No one is even trying to pretend that these 4 will actually look at the Constitutionality of the law and decide - which is all they are supposed to be doing. Some of the questioning that came out of Kagan and Ginsburg sounded like they were on the other side of the room, acting as lawyers arguing for the law.

The fact that Elena Kagan did not recuse herself is dispicable. She was Obama's Solicitor General (chief lawyer). She was part of the team that built Obamacare, she was seen publicly cheering its passage, she publicly praised it, and helped prepare legal defenses of it. For her to be sitting in judgement of it is a travesty. There is no way she would recuse herself, no way she would step aside and not guarantee Obama a vote in favor. I am not shocked she did this - after all, liberals believe anything justifies what they want, no matter how illegal or immoral. I am shocked that we haven't heard more about this. I guarantee that this point will be discussed a whole lot if SCOTUS rules in favor of Obamacare (especially if the decision is 5-4). It will be a point discussed by consitutional and Supreme Court experts for many years to come.

It's going to be a nervous couple of months, waiting for a decision that is fundamentally going to affect how much power the Federal Government has over its citizens. It is truly amazing that something that will affect each and every American (and all of those illegals) is going to be decided by such a small group. (In actuality, it is going to be decided by only one or two of them).

Stunning that we've gotten to this point. I wonder what the Founding Fathers would think, if they could see us now.

Where Are Holder And The Rest Of Obama's DoJ Brownshirts?

I want to know why Obama's puppet Eric Holder and his army of DoJ Democrat operatives aren't front and center in this Miller/Zimmerman mess. Specifically on these two issues, they should be leading an intense investigation into these hate crimes related to the main case:

First, noted 'film director' and racial pot stirrer Spike Lee has taken upon himself the sacred duty to publicly out the address of George Zimmerman, to facilitate demonstrations and attacks on the man's home and his family. Lee has done this via twitter. Unfortunately, he tweeted the wrong address. After it was pointed out as incorrect, he tweeted it again - the same incorrect address. The poor elderly couple who lived at the address he outed have been forced form their home and are living in hiding at an undisclosed hotel.

The couple should sue Lee for everything he has for doing this.

Lee should be brought up on hate crime charges, no matter if the address was correct or not, because he was facilitating a racially motivated attack on a private citizen.

Second, the head of the New Black Panthers publicly stated he was offering a $10,000 bounty for George Zimmerman. I haven't seen the text of the offer, but I am pretty sure he wasn't offering the money to have Mr. Zimmerman join him for a cup of coffee to discuss the situation. A private citizen offering a bounty on another private citizen is equal to offering a murder for hire contract. This man should immediately be arrested and charged as such. Has not happened.

The man was arrested, but for an old illegal weapons charge, which he has since been bailed out on.

Not only has Obama's DoJ not acted on either of these heinous acts, we haven't heard so much as a peep of condemnation from Eric Holder, DoJ spokespersons, or even His Highenss himself on these hate crimes or their perpetrators.

The Shame of the Race Baiters

I've held my tongue on the Travon Miller/George Zimmerman mess in Florida, until now. The words that have been written and spoken on this would fill terrabytes of disk space. I don't have any words of wisdom that will change anyone's mind on this, but I do have words!

My words will be reserved for the sorry bastards who are flying off the handle with irresponsible acts and statements, and those dregs of our society who are seeking to profit from the tragedy.

I am amazed at how quick to judge, criticize, condemn, and capitalize a lot of public figures are on this. Have they learned nothing from the past? Did they not pay attention to the Tawana Brawley fiasco? Have they not heard of the Duke Lacrosse team? The answer is, of course they know of them, and of course they will disregard them, because exercising a sane level of restraint does not serve their purpose.

Did we hear The Rev. Jesse Jackson, or Al Sharpton, of the head of the NAACP issue apologies in the wake of those two incidents, where they were clearly shown to have fanned the flames of racism for something that did not happen? Of course not. In their minds, the incidents, the alleged victims, and the wrongfully accused are inconsequential - being down with 'the struggle' and capitalizing on the moment was the only thing that mattered.

Why are we not heading outrage from the Latino community about this? After all, George Zimmerman is a self described Hispanic. Not to mention a registered Democrat. Don't be conned by the idiots who refer to him as white - he is half white and half Hispanic. By the measuring method used for His Highness Obama himself, this means he is 100% through and through authentically Hispanic.

Latinos ought to be outraged at the treatment of Zimmerman, and the hate speech that blacks have thrown at him. This is racism pointed at them from another minority, and they should not stand for it!

What does it say about Miller's mother, when she files for a trademark on her son's name? The only possible reason for doing so is to make money off of it. She appears to be trying to cash in on the tragedy, which I find disgusting.

What does it say about our President, the leader of our country (for better or worse) when he comes out and refers to Miller as someone he would have been proud of to call 'son'? Of course, that was when the public portrayl of Miller was as a child saint. Now that details of Miller's actual persona are coming out, we haven't heard anything from POTUS retracting or quantifying his statement, have we?

Does this mean that His Highness would be proud to have a thief, a gold grill wearing thug wannabe, a delinquent defacer of school property, a drug user, and a racially and sexually abusive Tweeter whose self chosen handle is NO_LIMIT_NIGGA - as a son?

What does it say about our President and his reelection campaign when they decide to start offering hoodies for sale as as campaign merchandise when this story started to break big in the press?

What does it say about a Democrat member of Congress who shows up on the House floor to deliver a rambling, incoherrent statement on how Miller's death is an attack on all blacks, dressed in a hoodie (in direct violation of the dress code of the US House of Representatives)?

Do you think all of those entrepeneurs who are selling T-shirts idolizing Miller and condemming the racist murderer Zimmerman are giving them away for free? Do you think they are donating their proceeds to programs for troubled youth, or for scolarships to send at risk kids to college? Maybe they are sending the money to Obama to help pay down the deficit, or to pay for health care for the poor? Oh HELL NO ... those leeches are pocketing the cash and running away, and I would bet you that they aren't reporting any of that income to Obama's IRS brownshirts!

I don't know what happened that night. I know what I've heard, which is Zimmerman's side and the statements of the one eye witness. I know the police report backs up Zimmerman and the witness through the physical evidence of the injuries Zimmerman suffered. I know the wild rush to judge statements coming from people who have already decided in their own minds what happened, and are making racially provacative statements based on nothing but what they want the facts to be.

I do think this should go to a grand jury. I do think that people on both sides should STFU, and wait for the evidence to be heard. I do think that bigwigs and bigwig wannabes who are trying to get in front of the cameras to stroke their own egos should be ignored, and chastised by the media, not treated as sound bite Gods. I do think the POTUS should stop inserting himself into racially charged situations, especially before the facts are known - He has made a habit of doing this, and it is way beneath the status of the Office of the President to act so irresponsibly.

I do know that I'm sick of the so called leaders who act so outraged, yet in reality salivate at the thought of incidents like this so they can get in front of the public and act like they are relevant. Bottom feeders who make a very good living off of making sure racial relations in this country stay as bad as possible - for if there was racial harmony, they'd have no way to make a living!

Wow ... A Lesson In History Courtesy of a Democrat

With apologies to the ghost of John Belushi, this man is no John Belushi!

Congressman Keith Ellison's(D-MN) enlightenment of all of us on what really happened in WWII. Stunning. I had no idea this is what truly happened.

Unbelievable that this man is actually in the US House of Representatives - one of 435 members of that body who create and shape legislation that rule damn near everything in our lives. (I bet he loves Obamacare!) God, its no wonder our country is so F***ed up right now!

GOP's War on Women - An Explanation For The Left

You can't turn on the news, or a radio, or open a newspaper (print or on-line) these days without being assaulted by waves of coverage about the outrageous War on Women that has been declared by the Republican Party.

I have an explanation for this for those of you on the left (that is if any left leaning folks actually read this - if you are on the left, please do me and yourself the favor of reading the rest of this post).

This whole thing pretty much started when Obama's HHS pet Sebelious issued an edict that all employers MUST provide free contraceptives to their female employees through insurance or other health coverage. This edict had no provisions for any employers that had moral or religious objections to doing so.

The Catholic Church immediately cried foul. Forcing them to do this for employees of their church or church affiliated/sponsored entities directly violates a central pillar of their religious belief. (now, it is VERY important to note that Catholics, particularly northeastern Catholics, and the church leadership consists of overwhelmingly liberal Democrats. This was not a Republican vs. Democrat reaction on the Church's part.)

After enduring a torrent of criticism, Obama backtracked, and issued a modification of the mandate, which when looked at closely, is even more heinous to the Catholic Church than the original. However, that's sidestepped, and the Great Compromiser gloats over how he has defused the situation.

Those on the right immediately jumped in, crying out against the attack by Obama against the Catholic Church's beliefs, and the violation of the Freedom of Religion guaranteed us by the Constitution.

Obama's campaign folks and the mainstream media jumped at the chance to spit out a twisted spin of this, portraying it as an attack on 'women's health', 'women's rights', 'women's reproductive freedoms', etc. Mainstream media, such as NBC news, is doing all they can to frame this as an attack on women't rights, and an attempt by the right to prevent any woman from having access to contraceptives. They've gone so far as to call it a War on Women - the now generally accepted catch phrase used by the left.

What is being said by members of the left and their media mouthpieces are complete fabrications - out and out lies made specifically for political attacks against conservatives and Republicans.

All anyone on the right or in the Catholic Church has complained about is Obama forcing the Church to PAY for contraception for its employees as part of their healthcare. Nothing about trying to prevent Catholic women from buying and using contraceptives. There was absolutely nothing said by the Church, Romney, Santorum, Limbaugh, O'Reilly, or anyone else about preventing women from obtaining and using contraceptives. Nothing. Nada. Never mentioned.

If you doubt this, ask youself what Republican have you actually heard directly state what the media is reporting they are saying. Have you actually heard Mitt Romney, or Rick Santorum, or anyone else actually state that they want to prevent women from getting contraceptives? I'm not talking about second hand reports through the media, or through such a*holes like Media Matters. Who have you actually heard state this?

Why is the left doing this? Obama's re-election. They are trying to manufacture an issue to whip up female resentment towards Republicans. Obama and his minions know that he is in trouble with female voters, many of whom have opened their eyes to what the man is and what he is doing.

More Obama Fiscal Outrage

The latest outrageous waste of our tax money by the Obama clan ...

One of His Highness' daughters decided to go to Mexico with some of her friends for Spring Break. Details are very sketchy, and the White House has requested that information on the trip be removed from the internet and other reporting outlets (which is valid, and smart - if they are stupid enough to expose their daughter to the dangers of Mexico, you don't want to advertise her location to all the drug runners, kidnappers, and jihadists who might see her as an esay mark).

25 Secret Service agents are providing her security, along with an unreported number of Mexican police. Her travel method was not disclosed (at least nowhere I found), so I do not know if any official US aircraft or other travel methods were used.

The salaries, travel costs, hotel costs, meal costs for at least 25 highly trained US Secret Service agents amounts to a whole bunch of tax payer money. All wasted, so that one of the Big O's kids can go on Spring Break (at age 13!).


A Little Funny For Your Day

Wife unit passed this on via email. Not sure where it originated, but it is pretty funny ...

Last Saturday afternoon, in Washington, D.C., an aide to Nancy Pelosi visited the Bishop of the Catholic cathedral in D.C.

He told the Cardinal that Nancy Pelosi would be attending the next day's Mass, and he asked if the Cardinal would kindly point out Pelosi to the congregation and say a few words that would include calling Pelosi a saint.

The Cardinal replied, "No. I don't really like the woman, and there are issues of conflict with the Catholic Church over certain of Pelosi's views."Pelosi's aide then said, "Look, I'll write a check here and now for a donation of $100,000 to your church if you'll just tell the congregation you see Pelosi as a saint."

The Cardinal thought about it and said, "Well, the church can use the money, so I'll work your request into tomorrow's sermon."

As Pelosi's aide promised, Pelosi appeared for the Sunday worship and seated herself prominently at the forward left side of the center aisle.As promised, at the start of his sermon, the Cardinal pointed out that ex-Speaker Pelosi was present.

The Cardinal went on to explain to the congregation, "While Pelosi's presence is probably an honor to some, the woman is not numbered among my personal favorite personages. Some of her most egregious views are contraryto tenets of the Church, and she tends to flip-flop on many other issues.Nancy Pelosi is a petty, self-absorbed hypocrite, a thumb-sucker, and a nit-wit. Nancy Pelosi is also a serial liar, a cheat, and a thief. I must say, Nancy Pelosi is the worst example of a Catholic I have ever personally witnessed. She married for money and is using her wealth to lie to the American people. She also has a reputation for shirking her Congressional obligations both in Washington and in California in order to further her own far left wing agenda. The woman is simply not to be trusted."

The Cardinal concluded, "But, when compared to President Obama, Nancy Pelosi is a saint."

Left Wing Kook = Hypocrite

Elle MacPherson has graced us with her wit and wisdom on politics.

The 'supermodel' had this exchange with Howard Stern on his radio program:

Stern: "You like Obama?"

Elle: "Yeah, I'm living in London and I'm Socialist. What do you expect?"

So, the airhead sticks her foot in her mouth on two counts.

First, she semi-directly calls Obama a Socialist - or at the very least someone that Socialists would support. Since the word 'Socialist' is a hard negative term for about 90-95 percent of Americans, Obama's campaign has to be gasping at her idiocy.

Second, there is no way in hell that Elle Macpherson is a Socialist. By claiming to be one, she shows us her lack of knowledge on such a basic subject.

According to Webster's dictionary:

Socialist - A person who is in favor of Socialism - or a member of a political party that seeks to set up Socialism.

Socialism - Any of the various systems in which the means of producing goods are publicly owned, with all people sharing in the work and the goods (or wealth) produced.

Ms. Macpherson was reported by Forbes Magazine to have a net worth of over $60 million dollars in the middle of 2011. She did not earn or collect any of that money in a Socialist state.

Ms. Macpherson collects millions of dollars each year in fees and royalties from her various enterprises and endorsements. All of what she produces and collects relies on Capitalism. She would not exist as a public figure, and certainly not a very rich public figure, in a Socialist state.

So, Ms. Macpherson, if I may make a suggestion. I offer this in all honesty so that you can keep from making a fool of yourself again. Stop pretending to be something if you haven't a f***ing clue what that something is!

Either that, or start signing over about 95% of what you bring in each year to the Federal Government for redistribution.

The photo above is not Elle Macpherson. Is is some nameless model wearing a bra from Ms. Macpherson's line of signature underwear. This little piece of cloth retails for $105.00. The matching panty goes for another $60.00.

Not exactly something geared towards all her 99%er comrades out there fighting the oppressive imperialist, capitalist dogs, is it? If she was a true Socialist, her name should be on plain, featureless, white cotton underwear, one size fits all, available free of charge to all women at the local Federal Government Giveaway Center.

Obama's Re-election Air Force In Action

The Big O had to get his college hoops fix. He drug along the UK Prime Minister with him. He flew from Andrews AFB to Dayton to attend a first round game between Western Kentucky University and MIssissippi Valley State (two incredible basketball powerhouses!).

Figure three hours flight time to Dayton and back for Air Force One. Add the second VC-25, which always accompanies him. At a stated $180,000 per hour just to fly a VC-25, and the cost for the two aircraft for this little jaunt comes to over a million dollars in tax payer funds. This doesn't count the cost of the C-17 transports that carried his limos and support vehicles, those vehicles operating costs, and the cost for all the staff, both federal and local who were paid for the time to support the President. You probably wouldn't be far off if you guessed a total cost of about 4 million out of our pockets so His Highness could take in a game and get a photo op for the press.

Missus Big O is going out to San Fran for a private fund raiser. She will undoubtedly commandeer her personal C-37 (Air Force version of the 757 airliner) to carry her and her hangers on from Washington out to San Fran and back on March 30. At a private fundraiser for His reelection campaign, those fortunate few will be allowed to hand over a thousand dollars just to get in the door. A very select group will ba allowed to fork over $35,800 to get a 'Hi' from the Missus Big O and a hastily propped photo with her and up to 5 of your friends.

(Who comes up with these 'charges? The DNC, I would guess ... but why the wierd numbers? Why not just $40K?)

10 hours in the air for the 757, plus the cost of all the staff and security accompanying her. Any guesses as to how much the taxpayers are getting soaked so the DNC and Obama's campaign can fill up their war chests?

This pair of operators has to the the biggest team of thieves the world has ever seen!

The Fact Of The Matter Is ...

I hate those words.

When someone prefaces a statement with those words, they are insulting your intelligence. They are saying to you that no matter what you think, what they are saying cannot be denied as truth. They are trying to force feed something into your brain, and telling you to accept it without questioning it. They are promoting themselves, or their cause, as the indisputable altar of truth.

While many folks use this preface to their comments, it is especially heinous when someone in politics spews it out. People in both parties are guilty of it, but I find a preponderance of violators using it are on the left. If you listen to left wing pundits, I guarantee that at least 50% of them start their spew with that preface.

When someone spits this out to you, whether it is in person or through the media, you are about to be bombarded with either 1) their OPINION, or 2) an out and out LIE. Your internal bullshit detector should immediately go off, telling you to either disregard whatever this person is saying, or carefully examine it to determine for yourself how much credence to give it. No matter what else you do, do not accept what they are saying as the 'The fact of the matter is' ...

More Eric Holder Insanity

Eric Holder, the most incompetent political hack Attorney General in American history, has stuck it to the American people again, at the behest of his boss.

Meet Tony West. Mr. West is Holder's selection to fill the number 3 position at the DoJ. This position is currently tasked with crafting policy regarding the terrorist prisoners held at Gitmo.

Mr. West is best known for his defense of convicted terrorist John Walker Lindh. You may remember Mr. Lindh, a Gitmo detainee, an American captured in Afghanistan while fighting with the Taliban against American troops. Mr. Lindh, who is now serving a 20 year sentence.

Now, Mr. Lindh was entitled to a defense attorney during his trial, even in a military tribunal. However, that shouldn't enhance the attorney's resume for a top level policy position within the DoJ, particularly one overseeing Gitmo. This is particularly true considering Mr. West continued promoting Mr. Lindh after the trial, stating in public that Mr. Lindh had a lot to offer society after his release.

The firm that West worked for at the time also defended two other terrorists housed at Gitmo.

Mr. West is clearly not qualified to serve in any top position at DoJ, due to this incredible conflict of interest.

West was a finance co-chair for Obama's campaign in the 2008 election.
