So, the Great Lakes gang-Mecca known as Chicago scored the NATO gig. Gauging by the heavy metal fencing and the ground swell of protests already bubbling up, I’m thinking the sleepy Los Angeles community of Watts might have been a safer venue. Either way, in Obama’s America of sanctioned thuggery thinly veiled by the First Amendment, any NATO leader who misses the riots of his own country should feel right at home in ours. Especially in Chicago. And the city’s mayor, Rahm Emmanuel, couldn’t be more proud.
More from Life and Death in Shanghai by Nien Cheng. This from one of her interrogations while in prison during China’s Cultural Revolution.
Cheng, insisting she had acted within the dictates of the Communist Party of China, tells her interrogator: “Chairman Mao talked about the formation of a united front and cooperation with all patriotic Chinese.” (Think: Obama’s promise of uniting America.)
Her interrogator replies:
“That was the correct policy at that time. It was meant to win the support of the bourgeois class and to undermine the Kuomintang. After the Kuomintang was successfully overthrown, naturally that policy was no longer needed. In every circumstance, we unite lesser enemies to fight the major enemy. When the major enemy is overcome, one of the lesser enemies will become the new major enemy. So the struggle goes on.”
And the struggles never end. For a Marxist hell-bent on having absolute power, there will always be a new major enemy. And something our hapless Democrats don’t seem to get is that once capitalism is abolished, Obama’s list of major enemies won’t be any shorter…and they will probably be on it.

Newsflash: Acorn got upwards of $4.5 billion from Obama’s stimulus package. Oh, and Obama worked with these people in Chicago as a community organizer.
I don’t want to spoil it for you, but I will tell you that this tale involves ACORN, a pseudo-prostitution ring, the pseudo-trafficking of young ladies, and your very real tax dollars. Chaos For Glory: My Time With ACORN
If you still refuse to believe our country is being run by a wannabe communist dictator and his hired thugs, then I’d like to respectfully request that you stop procreating…and voting.
While this ad, financed by the Democratic National Committee, doesn’t exactly send thrills running up my leg, it does give me some serious chills running down my spine.
This is pure propaganda. Pure intimidation. Pure bull…well, you get the point.
Lenin, Stalin, Hitler and Mao would be proud.
So, this must be where the line forms.
GOV. ARNIE WANTS A BAILOUT FOR CALIFORNIA. You’ve got to be an idiot not to have seen this coming.
Here’s my take on the bailout: I’m of the opinion that this was completely contrived. You’ve got crooked, liberal, minority, Obama-employed Dems running Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac into the ground. Fan and Fred just happen to go bust around election time. Then, the very people responsible for said financial debacle conjure up a way to fix the “problem”. So, the Dems, after duping a large portion of the American sheeple population (and an embarrassing number of Republicans), have crowned themselves the saviors of the global economy with their gazillion dollar bailout bill. It’s the quintessential Democratic MOA: Create a problem that only they can solve. I’m not sure, but I think Stalin has been one-upped.
Aside from becoming a socialist state, the big rub here is that there are scarce few Republicans, i.e., McCain, willing to get even a little nasty about this. Could it be that his congressional version of “I Wanna Hold Your Hand” is thwarting his ability to discern right from wrong? I mean, I know he’s always been a tad dyslexic in telling the difference between right and left, but the criminals are in plain sight here. It’s like shooting donkeys in a barrel.
It is sadly embarrassing that we even have to work to defeat the ‘elocuationally’ challenged…uh..uh…Obama. With his misstatements and lies, his associations with treasonous radicals, Biden’s foot-in-mouth syndrome, and the gaggle of left-wing morons backing him, Obama should have been out of the running months ago. But he’s not. And now he has a the Holy Grail of the Democratic party to wave in the American people’s face – the bailout bill. And for those who don’t know their history, that, alone, is enough to cause the entitlement-minded to pull the lever for Obama, and flush this nation.
If Obama is elected, California won’t be the only state to jockey for a bail out. Every liberal governor who has run their state into the dirt…Michigan comes to mind…will head to Washington bearing gifts for the Messiah in hopes of being bailed out.
Ain’t that America…? It shouldn’t be.
As it opened, the Democratic debate looked more like an academic brain-bowl than a presidential debate. Unfortunately, it sounded like a presidential debate and not like an academic brain-bowl.
Senator Clinton put her best foot in it by saying, “The American people know where I stand”. No argument there. The question is, does she? She’s an uber-liberal socialist Democrat trying desperately to come across as a moderate. And this is a big problem for the little lady because a moderate is just another name for an uber-liberal socialist Democrat who is too spineless to admit they’re an uber-liberal socialist Democrat…because it’s political suicide. But so is claiming to be a moderate because everyone knows a moderate is just an uber…oh, you get the point.
For a minute I thought Edwards was going to call Clinton out for “trying to have it both ways”. But then I realized he was just using Hillary’s personality disorder to slam Bush.
Edwards was next to accuse Clinton of trying to have it both ways—with the war in Iraq, Social Security and defining the scope of President Bush’s power to use military force against Iran. “She says she will bring change to Washington while she continues to defend a system that does not work, that is broken, that is rigged, that is corrupt.”
Said the former North Carolina senator who nearly single-handedly destroyed obstetrics, gynecology, and neurosurgery in North Carolina while making millions on his rampant lawsuits.
The mature part of the evening really got rolling when Hillary retorted,
“I’ve just been personally attacked again. I don’t mind taking hits on my record on issues, but when somebody starts throwing mud at least we can hope it’s accurate and not right out of the Republican play book.”
I think she meant the Democratic play book where it says Democrats should fire personal attacks with reckless abandon and claim them to be legitimate points. If Hillary is going to whine every time she’s the target of a tactic she can do in her sleep she better find a new hobby.
Finally New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, who had become cranky because he couldn’t get a word in edgewise, was forced to tell the candidates to “stop the mudslinging.” He then gave the camera his best pageant wave and said, “All I want to do is give peace a chance.”
The debate ended with Edwards and Clinton sissy-slapping each other at arms length.
I think the fact that governors are being forced into this position is really unfortunate. They should not be making immigration policy. The federal government should be making immigration policy and that’s what I’m going to try to do as president again…”
The DNC needs to apprise Hillary of the fact that she has never been president.
Well, well, well. Isn’t this interesting. Our diplomats, the illustrious, though spineless, few who have opted to represent our government, don’t want to go to Iraq. I wonder why. Actually, I don’t.
I’ve got a few theories as to why our quivering diplomats are wetting themselves over going to Iraq…
Because there is a war going on.
Because they’d have to plant their America-hating cans in the middle of a bunch of Iraqis that they’ve convinced should hate Americans. Kind of like walking into the cage of the bear you’ve been poking with a stick.
Because those death toll numbers they celebrate might just include them.
Because they’d have to face all the soldiers they have demoralized and vilified.
Because they are deathly afraid they might actually grow to respect the work our military is doing.
Because they might get cornered in an ally by a few disgruntled Marines and taught a little patriotism.
Because someone from Al Queda might recognize them.
Because they might break a nail.
But Condi isn’t feeling their pain. (If ever, in a million years, I wanted a woman to be president…)
In separate comments, Rice and Ambassador Ryan Crocker said foreign service officers are obligated by their oath of office to work at any diplomatic mission worldwide, regardless of the risks involved or their personal feelings about the policies of any given administration.
Little wake-up call here. My own husband, a Navy pilot, served under the philandering Commander in Chief, Bill Clinton as he systematically dismantled and demoralized (literally) the military. Talk about having personal feelings against the administration. Virtually the entire military hated Clinton, but they served. That these diplomatic morons, who have gorged themselves on the Hate America Kool-Aid and worked tirelessly to slander Bush, have the gall to try to weasel out of their duty, well, it’s breathtaking, really.
Rice noted that more than 1,500 of roughly 11,500 foreign service officers had already done Iraq duty voluntarily and, while expressing an understanding of the safety and security concerns of those who might be ordered to go, said they must uphold their commitments.
This is liberal duplicity at it’s best. Are they worried that the media will start slandering them and their work over in Iraq? A little worried that they’ll be accused of killing innocent women and children? A little worried someone will stick a tack on their chair?
On his way to the meeting in Turkey, Crocker offered an even blunter assessment, saying that diplomats have a responsibility to prioritize the nation’s interest over their personal safety and that those who don’t are “in the wrong line of business.”
Yea! What he said. But honestly, how many of these diplomats took their jobs for the cushy perks and paychecks. That they might actually have to fulfill their job description completely unnerves them.
According to the State Department:
The union that represents diplomats says the security situation is precarious and the completion of a new, heavily secured embassy compound and living quarters in Baghdad has been beset by logistical and construction problems.
Translation: The pool isn’t finished. They have a union?
Other than the blatant cowardice, these diplomats anger me for another reason. Our military is slowly losing their benefits and the respect they deserve. They are lambasted from all sides. And speaking from experience, our military doesn’t get paid nearly what these sweaty-palmed diplomats do. Yet our troops leave families behind and put themselves between the enemy and this country–all the while diplomats broker and sell America down the river to win the popular vote with the enemy. These guys are going to be hard pressed to get much sympathy from the military community.
Don’t want to go to Iraq? Tough. My kids don’t want to lose their father, but we aren’t whining.
And I ask, who needs Comedy Central with these folks around?
Senator and Republican Presidential Hopeful, John McCain on Hillary’s Attempt to Spend $1 Million on the Woodstock Concert Museum:
“A few days ago, Senator Clinton tried to spend $1 million on the Woodstock concert museum. Now my friends, I wasn’t there. I’m sure it was a cultural and pharmaceutical event. I was tied up at the time.”
A little “He said, She said” with Romney and Hillary:
