Whose Side Are You On, Anyway?

Robert Fisk at the Independent (you can count on the over-the-pond media to report on issues the US media refuses to touch – look, kittens!) says what we know deep inside our red-blooded American hearts:

If Barack Obama decides to attack the Syrian regime, he has ensured – for the very first time in history – that the United States will be on the same side as al-Qa’ida.

Quite an alliance! Was it not the Three Musketeers who shouted “All for one and one for all” each time they sought combat? This really should be the new battle cry if – or when – the statesmen of the Western world go to war against Bashar al-Assad.

The men who destroyed so many thousands on 9/11 will then be fighting alongside the very nation whose innocents they so cruelly murdered almost exactly 12 years ago. Quite an achievement for Obama, Cameron, Hollande and the rest of the miniature warlords.

I have a very bad feeling about the next few days…

Schadenfreudelicious

Obama’s speech today was greeted with “Yes, We Scan” signs, among other anti-freedom references.

Priceless.

In Honor of Our Imperial President’s Imperial Imperialness…

I took in some rather productive range time on Sunday. As Scarlett once said, “I can shoot straight, if I don’t have to shoot too far.”

If you had asked me twenty years ago when my kids were wee bairns if I would own a gun, I’d have said,”Never!”

If you had asked me ten years ago when my kids were teenagers if I would own a gun, I’d have said,”Maybe…” Teenagers, you see.

Times change. People change. But I never in my life would have believed that America would change to what it is now and what I fear it will come to be.

Read what Erick had to say about when the British made the mistake of trying to take the colonists’ guns…

As to my periodic absences, spotty posting habits and the strange nocturnal noises emanating from the project going on in our garage, well, move along, there’s nothing to see here. Nothing to see at all.

Quote of the Day Election

Smitty has fire in the belly (emphasis his):

The idea of a cowardly POTUS, whose ‘gutsy calls’ come only after excessive amounts of Hamlet-esque hand-wringing is staggering. If you don’t grasp the basic notion of “never-leave-a-buddy”, then you are not fit for the role of Commander-in-Chief at all. I would muster measurably more respect for BHO if it turned out he was a Machiavellian scoundrel who was using U.S. lives as hostage bait. Let Ambassador Stevens become a useful crisis for October, to own the news cycle, and freeze out Romney. In such a scenario, he’d do some grand deal around Halloween, and then victory laps until the election. One wishes for certainty that this was not the intent of Benghazi.

Now we see how, BHO’s lack of loyalty down turns into a lack of loyalty up. There exists a category of no-talent clown who thinks that rank or office is what matters, and fundamentals like “never leave a buddy” do not. Au contraire, mon fine French frere. Sir Blames-a-lot may point a finger, but the information leaks are going to continue to point back at him. Obama really isn’t anyone’s buddy, and he’s not actually getting left behind. At least not in the same sense as Stevens, Smith, Woods, and Doherty. Yet the same callous indifference Obama offered Americans in a real-world crisis is being repaid him in spades.

Couldn’t happen to a more deserving piece of work.

Heh. Give that man a bullhorn.

“#Benghaziquiddick”… because ‘%gate’ doesn’t come with death tolls. BAM.

What She Said, Plus Bonus Points of the WHY of Benghazigate

Elizabeth Scalia, The Anchoress, zeroes in on the Lying Adolescent in Chief and his troupe of Eddie Haskells like a laser-targeted drone.

Every single thing she said is TRUE. The President lied to the nation. Anyone working in our government who knew anything about that night lied to the nation. And the press cowered and simpered, like a well-dressed Wormtongue, covering and twisting the narrative to help their Master.

…there should be a pile of resignations on his desk, and perhaps his own resignation should be at the very top.

Bonus Answer: Perhaps the weeks of denials and lies are to cover up the real reason for Benghazigate – Obama has been gun-running in the Middle East to such a scale that Fast & Furious looks like the Drunken Teacups ride at Disney World.

Some Day Maybe He’ll Get Something Right #ObamaFail

Maybe it will be his library. Who knows. But you can be sure it will have a putting green and a basketball goal.

At least CBS noticed his foreign policy is in shambles. It is wonder, since the WH is full of blabbermouths?

“Protesters” are now attacking the Jarkarta embassy.

Of course, CNN released the picture and personal info of the guy who created the “video” that the Religion of Peace is rioting over. Probably got their info from the WH, who again, need the media to cover for their missteps.

The Obama administration continues to misdirect, but fewer and fewer are buying it.

If I didn’t know any better, I’d think Obama this whole mess. #ManchurianCandidate

Now That the DNC is Over…

I’m sure Charlotte is breathing a sigh of relief.

Honestly, I didn’t watch any of it. This campaign, in fact the last three years, has had a detrimental effect on me and my family.

(H/T Political Clown Parade)

If you’re part of the problem, get a clue, while you still can.

They Don’t Teach Economics at Harvard Law

And boy, does it show. Read it all. I’ll wait.

In other economic news, Queen Michelle FLOTUS wears a $6,800 jacket to the Olympic party at Buckingham Palace.

The cost of that jacket would pay our mortgage for 5 months. Not that we’re hurting or anything since Hubs lost his job. Heaven forbid we’re not grateful for our Benevolent Imperial Federal Government and all.

Breaking: The Election may be over before it even starts….

Orignally, I was going to post something about the impending contempt vote against Holder along the line of “The Giant Game of Chicken,” or something. Then Twitter blew up this morning when Crook1 Eric Holder asked Crook2 President Obama to exercise Executive Privilege over #FastandFurious.

Bam.

Ask and ye shall receive.

Oh my, it will be a busy day. Ace has more…

UPDATE: Point of order – Why would Obama use Executive Privilege if he supposedly, according to Holder’s testimony, never saw any documents related to #FastandFurious? Hmmm… Either Obama lied or Holder perjured himself. Per Issa: The contempt motion will be moving forward…

UPDATE II: Twitchy has a long and entertaining feed on #FastandFurious.

UPDATE III: Shades of Richard Nixon. More from Michelle Malkin, Ben Howe, Moe Lane, William Jacobson.

UPDATE IV: Boom. Full vote next week….

About Those Leaks…

Let’s just cut to the chase, shall we? The leaks coming from the Obama administration are occurring solely for his re-election bid. Neither he, nor his minions, care about the lives endangered and/or lost by these actions, the security of our nation, or the damage done to international relations.

Since the complicit media only aids and abets, and doesn’t do their job to report, it’s up to YOU to educate yourself. Regardless of what Juan Williams believes, blogs are the best place to start. Sure, some blogs are more ‘agendaized’ than others. My only agenda is to SAVE AMERICA from those who want to destroy her. Since you are here, I bet that’s yours, too.

So have at it, kiddos.

First stop is SpecialOperationsSpeaks.

Background on the site can be found here and here.

And definitely read Austin Bay’s post on the group.

Little wonder the “Obama’s guts, Obama’s glory, vote Obama” media campaign, employing such narrative-dominating powers as Hollywood and The New York Times, is backfiring on Obama’s election campaign. Spicing the narrative with concrete military and intelligence operational details has angered and energized a very small but aggressive group, Special Operations Speaks (SOS). Its members are retired U.S. special operations soldiers, airmen, sailors and Marines, the mentors and comrades of the guys who really did get Osama bin Laden.

Mad yet?

The Catholic Church Throws Down the Gauntlet – Updated

According to the weather geeks, there is a large orange blob over my house. The rumbles gave it away, I suppose. Either the angels are bowling again, or God is rumbling his approval.

Today at 11am, 43 Catholic organizations filed lawsuits in a dozen jurisdictions against the federal government for infringing on their religious liberty.

Now you ask, why does a Baptist woman (recovering, at that) get all jazzed by this news? Because, when it all boils down to it that despite our differences in doctrine, we all love and worship the same God. If the Obama administration can succeed in it’s singling out of Catholics for specific snuffing, then who’s next? The Anglicans? The Methodists? The Presbyterians?

Elizabeth
says it straight:

…the government is fundamentally overstepping its bounds with this mandate which, as noted in the filing, contains no limiting principle to the government’s interference with religious freedom if the mandate stands.

The Catholics are gearing up for a long fight against evil. And I will stand with them.

UPDATE: Hear those crickets chirping? Either the MSM can’t be bothered to deviate from the Obama-prescripted mantra or they are literally too scared to open their mouths.

Well, that might be the message they are sending. But I think the larger message that perhaps they hadn’t meant to transmit is one of stark terror. Like the kid who hides under the blanket figuring the boogeyman won’t see him, the mainstream media has decided that if they just ignore the 12 lawsuits launched against the Obama administration by 43 Catholic entities, the reality of them will go away; they simply won’t exist, and the Supreme Court won’t see them, either!

Or, you know, they might just be afraid that if people begin to realize that the promised (as in still-not-in-effect) Obama “accommodation” was not the acceptable olive-branched solution they’d pretended it was, they might start wondering what this “constitutional-scholar” of a president is really all about.

Or, they might be afraid that, as Bozell says, news of the suits could negatively impact Obama’s re-election campaign.

Afraid is the operative word, here. What is coming through loud and clear is their fear.

Yep. Fear.

Never Question Those with the Gift of Discernment

You knew this in your heart, in your soul, in your own personal Gibbs’ gut.

Jeremiah Wright: I “Made It Comfortable” For Obama to Accept Christianity Without Having to Renounce Islam (Video Report)

Everyone has at least one gift of the Spirit, whether they know it or not. Some can even sense the presence of evil, whether it’s the person next to you on the subway or when someone enters a room.

Before/during/after the election I said this man was unsuitable for the Presidency. After three years of disaster after disaster, do you believe me now?

Only now, at the end, do you understand. Your feeble skills are no match for the power of the dark side! You have paid the price for your lack of vision!

An Apology, Fish or Cut Bait, Smoke and Mirrors, and Hands Off My Krispy Kreme Cheeseburger!

First off, if you received a spam email from me, mucho apologios. My account was hacked, and the entire planet was notified in the wee hours of Saturday. Again, my humblest apologies for my inability to keep the weaseally trolls at bay.

Secondly, this post was saved as draft last night, when I left for Thai Food Tuesday with Princess Hornist. When I returned home, the power was out on the entire street. An obvious conspiracy by SkyNet to keep you from all my bloggy goodness!

Now, to the dilemma before me. Next Tuesday is the Georgia Presidential Primary. I have narrowed my choices to two candidates: stinky Gingrich and equally stinky Santorum. While Buzz Brockway (a fellow contributor at Peach Pundit) supports Rick Santorum and Buzz’s opinion is greatly respected here at the praxuem, I still get a queasy feeling in my gut about the guy. Of course, any consideration of Newt requires an extra-large clothespin and a healthy dose of Lysol spray. I could yammer on about issue-this and issue-that all day long, but the matter festers to a point past who is electable – to who can beat the Romney machine and ultimately the Obama Death Star. (Or is it whom? I’m sure Divine Empress Editor Joy will get me on this one.) Politics certainly make for strange bedfellows. Getting past the Romney machine may be the kicker, but once accomplished – of the two (and PAY ATTENTION HERE) which candidate would cave and hand over their delegates to Romney in the face of defeat? Santorum would definitely wither away under the gaze of The Victor, obediently transferring his delegates all the while groveling for a Cabinet post. Newt, I’m not so sure. At least he would make it all the way to Mount Doom, if only to have Gollum bite his finger off. Decisions. Decisions.

(And yes, I know I mixed my fantasy metaphors there. Longtime readers know I do that all the time. Put your light saber away or I will win this argument handily with a Vulcan nerve pinch.)

Obama’s smoke and mirrors on energy policy. It is all in the pretty picture.

And That Albany Woman, Paula Deen, appears to be caving to MO’s food police. Darlin’ say it ain’t so!

Paula Deen says she’s going to start making lighter versions of her dishes. That’s a little like Ron Paul saying he’s going to start putting tax increases in his bills. It’s a little suspect.

Paula Deen has made a fortune off her rich recipes, as has the Food Network. So, what’s really at play here?

Deen, of course, has been under fire ever since revealing last month she has Type 2 diabetes.

Food activists decried the revelation. After all, how dare she keep mum about it for three years and continue making fattening foods!

What she cooks, eats, and what medical problems she has are no one else’s business. But, try telling that to the food police who think others’ food choices are their business.

Neither Deen nor the Food Network should bow to outside pressure for healthier fare. It’s a slippery slope toward food tyranny. What’s next, government regulation of the Food Network? Big Brother is already trying to tell us what we can and can’t eat, why not tell the Food Network what to do?

Now pass me that Krispy Kreme Cheeseburger, or I’ll Vulcan nerve pinch you again.

2011: Don’t Let the Screen Door Hit You on the Way Out

I don’t know about you, but 2011 was not a stellar year here at the little praxeum. So I’m not mourning the passing of this sad, disappointing year; neither am I looking at 2012 with hysterical dread like some.

(On a personal note: Dear MIL come home from hospital yesterday. Heartfelt thanks for the many prayers and words of encouragement during her illness. We spent the first few hours of her freedom celebrating the wonderful non-hospital food at OK Cafe. Also, if Piedmont would kindly forward the address of the manufacturer of the concrete hospital beds they use, I would like to, ahem, write them a letter.)

I had planned some sprucing up around the blog over the holidays, but since the black hole of hospitalling ate our Christmas whole, well, it just didn’t happen. Maybe by spring break. Charlie would not call that a SMART goal. Heh.

I have no resolutions. I have no predictions, except for maybe one. 2012 is going to be one helluva roller-coaster ride. I don’t even know where to begin.

SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act, H.R. 3261) will consume our entire bandwidth, if Obama doesn’t just kill the switch altogether. More here, here, and here. The OPEN Act is a more workable alternative, but here’s two bucks saying you’ll never hear about it through the state run media. In typical fashion, our overlords are trying to push this through while the general public is distracted by the holidays.

If only the GOP would stop bickering and focus on Obama’s multitude of failures, at least the presidential portion of this election would be a breeze. Across the pond, Obama is being compared to Hoover and considered a cog in the general decline of world stability. In fact, many historians are comparing the the last decade or so to the 1930’s. I did that back in 2006. I wish more than two people read this blog. Just think if I could use my Jedi prowess up in DC! Smitty thinks that technology enables us humans to see potential outcomes, and that some of us, at least, have learned our history lessons:

The big question for 2012 is whether technology can prevent a repeat of a collapse into fascism, as in 1932, and a vast war. I’ll boldly predict that technology drives the problem the other way. People communicate enough to realize that the social welfare state is the biggest clay-footed idol since Nebuchadnezzar. The tricky question is how you maneuver out from under the idol before it topples and crushes you, i.e. what is the transition plan toward liberty.

My only caveat for The Smittster is while people are able to communicate instantaneously these days, how many will be able to break free from the indoctrination from years of indentured servitude to the entitlement gods to see the true dangers that lay ahead? Liberty is never free, regardless of what that lobbyist just whispered in your ear.

To me, besides being first out of the chute, Iowa is no longer relevant. It is just another manufactured media opportunity to manipulate opinions in an election cycle. Another frenzoid moment, compliments of a decayed system.

Europe is dying, rotting from the soul outward. We can still stop this in America. Our forefathers shed both blood and treasure to fight the corruption of tyrants and reclaim the freedom bestowed by our Creator. Now we get to do it in our own backyards.

There’s much more, but it’s time for football and after this past week, we deserve some time to kick back and enjoy the final days of our favorite sport.

Go Utah. Beat the Bugs.

P.S. Happy New Year!

Crazy Eyes, What to Pack and What Does Obama Do When Faced With The Downgrade

Michelle Malkin has an excellent piece on the media’s treatment of conservatives, especially when it comes to which photos are published with their hit pieces articles.

“Crazy Eyes” actually was a nickname of mine, way back in college, when I was young, carefree and well, popular with the boys. It was bestowed by a stoner Grad Assistant, who would always show up to Redcoat rehearsals in dark sunglasses and that silly smirk everyone in my generation understands. He’d follow me around until Teske would start yelling from the tower. Secretly I was always flattered, in that awkward collegiate way that you feel when some drunk falls on you on Clayton Street, proclaims that you are the most beautiful girl he’s ever seen, then throws up on your shoes. Ahhh, Athens. Contact lenses the color of swimming pools helped. Alas, Lasik has restored my vision, and the eyes are icy blue now, not a shade that would have felt right at home on Miami Vice (the real one, stupid). I miss those comments.

This weekend I will be attending the RedState gathering in Charleston, SC. Where something magical may happen. What does one wear, exactly, to such a momentous event?

I wish Fred Thompson would be there. Fred gets the prize for best quote on Obama’s devotion to righting the ship of America on his watch:

The S & P downgrades our debt, and now Obama’s out golfing again.

That’s our president – always working on getting lower scores.

Now admit, just for a second you thought, “Where would we be if Fred was in the Oval Office?” Admit it.

Yeah, anything’s better than this mess.
