Quite a week we’ve had, in news, politics, weather, and natural disasters. Your humble and sunburned correspondent (airshow…daughter was in charge of sunscreen, so it got left in the car) brings you this wrap-up of the events I found worth talkin’ ‘bout.
We’ve got some really bad wildfires here in Texas. Two C-130 Hercules aircraft from Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado have been dispatched for firefighting duties. Since it is the Obama Administration giving the orders, those C-130s are fighting the fires in MEXICO instead of Texas. Let the Mexicans use their own damned air force!
His Majesty, King Barack I, has now decreed that he will whatever he pleases, even if the law specifically states otherwise. When he was a candidate, Obama stated “We’re not going to use signing statements as a way of doing an end-run around Congress”, but that is exactly what he is doing through his latest signing statement. White House Propaganda Minister Carney can’t even get the lies straight, as he told the press that Obama never said he was against using signing statements in this manner. Yo, Carney…learn to use your computer. Some videos are easy to find!
Isn’t there a Constitutional guarantee of equality under the law? The official position of the Obama Administration and the Democratic Party is that (just like in Orwell’s “Animal Farm”) some pigs are more equal than others. Obama intends to issue another Executive Order that will make his own pet pigs even MORE equal. When, oh when, will SCOTUS shoot this stuff down?
We all know that Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the new head of the DNC, is a left wing loon, but her knowledge of the Constitution can be summed up in a single word…nil. She believes that it is simply “outrageous” that private individuals are able to sell personal items to other private individuals within the same state and not be subject to federal scrutiny. Sorry, but the federal government has no authority to regulate intrastate commerce, only interstate commerce. She probably doesn’t understand the meanings of intrastate and interstate.
If you support our national sovereignty, you belong in the Hall of Shame. That Hall had better be real big, ‘cause I’m gonna have a LOT of company in there!
Here’s yet another reminder that most liberal talking points are based upon falsehoods. There is no wage gap between men and women if you compare apples to apples.
The newest talking point is that the GOP will be to blame if the debt ceiling is shattered. Tax Cheat Timmy said so when he visited Crapitol Hill last week. Of course, he is full of Obama when he says those things, because it is the spending of the Jackass Party that has our debt exploding. As Representative Scott of South Carolina points out, we could tax all those making over $100,000.00 per year at a rate of 100% and it would not make a dent in our deficit. Of course, Rep. Scott is an Uncle Tom because he doesn’t worship at the altar of big government liberalism.
The Wall Street Journal shows us the real targets of the Democrats and their taxation plans. Hint: it ain’t the “rich” who are gonna get soaked!
It gets better. Check out the goings-on at the Useless Nations. The brain-dead socialists (is there any other kind of socialist?) actually bleated that “the central enemy of Mother Earth is capitalism.”
Liberals have blocked the construction of new oil refineries in the United States since the mid-70s, but those same liberals are now going to spend $2,840,000,000.00 to build a refinery in Columbia. Before you ask, yes, George Soros does have a stake in it. In fact, when the energy plans of the Obama Administration are examined, it seems that the only real winners are other nations and George Soros. The losers are ALWAYS the American people.
We now have the definitive word on Glo-Bull Warming. If he says so, it MUST be true!
Geoffrey Fieger hasn’t been in the news much lately. Y’all remember Geoffrey, don’tcha? He was Jack Kevorkian’s lawyer. Anyways, he thinks he knows how to make Detroit attractive to young people so it can thrive once again. He wants to make drugs and prostitution legal! That may attract some young people, but certainly not the kind that would make Detroit a great city again. You need industrious, hard working, educated, innovative, and motivated people to do that, not a bunch of doped-up slackers with STDs.
For our friend at RedWhiteBlueNews.com who doesn’t believe that public schools teach the queer agenda, just take a look at what must now be taught in the indoctrination centers of California.
Barack Obama promised “change”, and here’s a chart of the change he brought to our nation. We can always HOPE for a conservative sweep in 2012, so we can have adult supervision of our government for the first time in decades.
How’s that civility thing working out? Here’s how the left shows civility and their love of America. (Severe language warning for all of these links…civility, ya know) They also show their love and respect for blacks who can think for themselves, and a young lady who dares to support the Constitution. Yes, these are the supporters of Obama, Reid, Schumer, Pelosi, Durbin, Jackson-Lee, Boxer, Murray, Feinstein, Emamuel, Jackson Jr., Kerry, Rangel, etc.
Anthony Martin seems to think that the GOP has a strong field of candidates to oppose Obama in 2012. Of course he includes Huckabee, Gingrich, and Christie, so we know he’s not very bright.
Here’s another update from the Affirmative Action Attorney General’s Injustice Department, and yet another. I keep asking which side they are on, and I never find evidence that it is the side of OUR nation.
When I saw this headline, I thought we were in for a juicy story. Boy, was I disappointed.
If y’all come across any weird/stoooopid/strange news stories that might be fodder for The Weekly Claw or The Weekend Claw, e-mail them to me at CrawfishsClaw@yahoo.com and I’ll consider ‘em. Yes, I will give you newshounds credit.
“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America ’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America ’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.” – Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL), March 20, 2006
