Told Ya

For the first time in American history, a president confessed to deliberately hurting his country to score points against his enemies.

Plus this. There’s not enough money for blah, blah, blah, but there’s enough money to do this. Sick.

Who is #Brett Kimberlin and Why You Should Care

Today is Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day.

Andrew warned the world about this guy six months before he died. Follow the money,

The funding of Kimberlin’s projects — tens of thousands of dollars from the George Soros-connected Tides Foundation, as well as foundations associated with Barbra Streisand and Sen. John Kerry’s wife — thus supported all of Kimberlin’s activities, including his effort to have O’Keefe and Giles prosecuted for their ACORN takedown.

His favorite targets are conservative and Tea Party bloggers.

Of late, Kimberlin’s name has surfaced because one blogger claims to have been driven from his home due to Kimberlin’s harassment. Why the harassment? Various bloggers and others have pointed out that Kimberlin runs a variety of left-wing organizations getting money from the deep pockets of the left. As the web of connections has increased, so has the harassment. Yet again, the left tries to silence dissent.

The latest target is Stacy McCain, who has abandoned his home and taken his family to a (hopefully) safe haven. Jimmie Bise has spoken with Stacy directly and rather than being afraid, he’s energized. Knowing Stacy, I’m not surprised.

Ace wonders why this fellow believes he has his own set of laws to operate under.

Did the US Congress strip American citizens of their right to state demonstrably true facts without unending harassments? Did we lose that right simply because Brett Kimberlin has decided, as a Congress of One, that we should no longer have it?

If we have not lost that right — if it is still legal to say, in America, that Brett Kimberlin was convicted of planting eight bombs in Speedway, Indiana, one of which took a man’s leg, and then, distraught over his maiming, his life, via suicide — if it is legal to say this, can we have it stated by a US Congressman for the record that it is still legal to say this?

My interest in this matter is not over Brett Kimberlin’s criminal history as a bloody bomber. My interest in whose leg he amputated-by-explosive-force 34 years ago.

My interest is in what he’s doing today.

Either Americans have the right to state that Kimberlin was convicted of the Speedway Bombing Spree or they do not.

If I no longer have this right, I would like Congress to pass a law stating that I no longer have this right. If we’re repealing the First Amendment, let’s make it official.

If, on the other hand, I retain this right, I would like members of Congress to reassure me on this point, by stating so on the floor of Congress, and entering the long and sordid history of Brett Kimberlin, aka the Speedway Bomber, into the Congressional Record.

And then let him try to claim that no one is permitted to mention this.

Follow the links. Start here. Follow the money. Do your own research and come to your own conclusion. This ask this question, “How has America sunk to this level?”

Pray for Stacy, the other bloggers and ones that will be threatened.

Round-Ups for Roll-Over RINOS

A round-up is in order, I think, to get this old jalopy running again…

Government’s latest power grab makes us all Catholics now. The church’s own leaders aided and abetted this travesty. And Adrienne, another conservative Catholic sees the parallels to Hitler’s early years that I warned of almost six years ago.

The Rick Santorum/Bob Schieffer interview is just apalling. Santorum holds his own against a vile Voldermort-wannabe who tries to twist every word into something he didn’t mean. Quin Hillyer has some excellent advice on how to proceed, especially since a nervous Obama is looking over his shoulder now.

Newt believes defeating Obama is a matter of national security.

Fifty years ago, John Glenn became the first man to orbit Earth. America will still have the “Right Stuff” for space exploration, but it will come from the private sector now.

Evil Blogger Lady has the Media’s Guide to Protestors.

DHS’ new counterterrorism training doesn’t include any mention of Islam or Muslims. Because they might be offended.

Stacy has the post-CPAC sniffles. Nothing will make him feel better than hitting his tip jar!

Redneck Jedis are the new HAWT. Who knew a little series filmed in and around Atlanta would be such a hit?

Almost As Fun As Holding a Porkchop Over a Piranha Tank

Well, this morning Peach Pundit (see here and here) stirred up the masses in daring to express a little sympathy for Karen Handel, former candidate for Georgia Governor and current VP for Public Policy at Susan G. Komen Foundation. Yes, that Susan G. Komen Foundation… the one that’s been in the news for daring to get out of lockstep with the Planned Parenthood crowd.

It was almost as fun as holding a porkchop over a piranha tank. The feeding frenzy began in earnest, with the usual suspects sniping back and forth over the intertubez, dredging up old campaign slog and muck. The KarenHandelHaters, the AbortionIsAGodGivenRight protestors, the LiberalEntitlementScamsters and the IJustDisagreeToBeDisagreeable lurkers all ganged up on the few who tried to make the point about how shameful is was that the liberal media immediately pointed out that Karen Handel, a (gasp!) Republican woman with strong value beliefs, was in a position of responsibility at the foundation and therefore had to be the prime instigator of the decision to end PP’s funding. The pixel ink was barely dry on the first post reporting the funding change when the witchhunt began in earnest. What an evil woman! She’s a witch! Burn her! Burn her!

One issue at hand is that PP’s umbrella of “women’s health” services includes breast cancers screenings, but they outsource the mammogram portion of the service. Gee, wouldn’t it make better sense for SGK to fund the mammogram providers, not PP? It’s their money, isn’t it?

It doesn’t have anything to do with research for breast cancer, saving lives, women’s health or even the money. The whole bruhaha boils down to deviating from the liberal narrative. If one dares stray, we now have the state-run press to act as Big Brother and blast over the Oceanian loudspeakers your name, rank and serial number.

One big, giant reeking bowl of Osso Buco slime.

But back to our Georgia friend. The biggest shame in this whole spectacle is that a fine woman of good character has been attacked and maligned, in an unwarranted and cruel fashion. She deserves our prayers to withstand the firestorm around her.

God help America. What have we become?

Clowns to the left of me, Jokers to the right, Here I am

Stuck in the middle with you…

Dang. Just Daaaayhng. Has the utter stupidity of it all got you howling at the moon? Merciful Lord, deliver me from fools and politicians!

After being out the particle beam of the 24/7 news cycle for a while, sticking my toe back in feels like it’s been burned off by acid.

Khaatim El resigns from the Atlanta School Board and weeps because he let the poor kids of the district down. How about the rest of the children there, sport?

“Imagine how much more money I’d have today if only the government had acted sooner!”

Sen. Mitch McConnell
has lost his ever-lovin mind.

The President, in FMJ re-election mode, just jumped ahead of the pack and used Grandma for a human shield against the meany GOP that want to save this country. If he can’t win the budget battle on his own, then hey, let’s scare the pants off every senior in America. He thinks it’s a win-win – he thwarts the evil GOP and ensures the senior vote in 2012. Hrumph. Too bad the people who actually understand economic policy say he’s wrong. His lying is beginning to border on the pathological. He’s becoming as easy to read as the schoolyard bully. And equally as prickly with the press. Every other President had to answer unscripted questions. I wonder at what point he will have played more golf than every other President… combined.

In unannounced candidate news, God must like Chris Christie, because if you bad-mouth him you might be struck by lightning and if you show any interest at all in 19th century American history, well, you just might be a bigot and a racist, subject to scorn and ridicule and certainly not fit for The Oval Office.

Heh. So does that mean, since I wore a hoop-skirt and gave tours of an antebellum home in my historically significant little home town during my youth, visited sutler camps and reenactments, gave living history demonstrations and sang songs around a campfire with a Union man in shackles playing guitar while my baby-girl (in the most adorable miniature Zouave jacket ever) slept in the bunk behind me, I can never aspire to higher office? Ever?

About That “New Civility”

You first. I’d just like to see it, hear it, just once, before you dissolve into a slobbering, enraged mass of quivering gibberish. Wait. Hold that thought; let me turn on my camera. Ok, now!

With Governor Scott Walker leading the way, the Wisconsin legislature is coming to its senses, without the AWOL cry-baby Dems.

The “New Civility” ensues.

Have cameras and videos ready, folks, because the “New Tone” approaches like a tsunami.
