4-25-2012 The Weekly Claw

The Crawfish had a much less than optimal experience with National Tire and Battery this past week. Let’s just say that a 5-hour job was accomplished in 96 hours, and I had to pay over $135 to rent a Chevy Aveo in order to get stuff done on Sunday and to go to work on Monday and Tuesday. On top of that, I am not sure that the work was properly performed. Grrrrr!

A) Here is a CLEAR case of a race-based violent attack. This man was beaten by a mob at his own home, and as of Tuesday evening was clinging to life in an Alabama hospital. Where is Jesse-be-the-Jackson? Where is the not-so-reverend Al? Where is the federal investigation by Eric Holder’s Injustice Department? Where are the immediate pronouncements by Barack Hussein Obama? Oh, that’s right. The victim is white and the 20 or so attackers were all black. That means this case is a complete non-issue, especially since the perps left the scene with the words “Now that’s justice for Trayvon!” So who are the real racists?

B) Speaking of the Injustice Department, the FBI has now stopped sharing intelligence with state and local law enforcement around the country, especially in regards to terrorism suspects. Isn’t this kinda like the rules Jamie Gorelick put in place under Bill Clinton that led to 9-11, which she partially blamed on the intelligence community following the rules she put in place? The FBI has also implemented their politically correct and C.A.I.R.-approved anti-terrorism training, which takes all reference to muslims and Islam out of the syllabus, despite 99% of all terrorism around the world in the past 30 years being committed by Islamic terrorists. So…which side is the Obama Administration on?

C) The answer to that question can easily be found in this little video in which one of Barack Obama’s advisors advocated the destruction of Israel. Samantha Powers is the wife of Cass Sunstein, who is also an Obama Administration official and former law professor at Chicago Law and Harvard Law.

D) Now that Islamists are taking control of Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, and are trying to take over Syria, that means that it is time to declare that the War on Terror is over, according to the Obama Administration. Does this mean that we are surrendering?

E) Back in 1976, the Canadian rock band Rush put out an album named “2112”. The first side of the album was inspired by Ayn Rand. Did Neil Peart see the Democrat Party of the 21st century as he wrote the lyrics?

F) The Democrats, led by Red Nanny P-Lousy, are not even trying to hide their hatred of the Constitution anymore. They are trying to rewrite the First Amendment to limit political speech of corporations. I’m guessing that their draft copy exempts unions.

G) Okay, this one is a couple of months old, but was just sent to me by Poll Katz member “Ginny”. It is a very good commentary by a black writer on why he dislikes and condemns King Barack I and Queen micHELLe. I give it a hearty two claws up.

H) The Crawfish is glad that he is not employed at Lockheed anymore. At that job, I was FORCED to either join the union or pay dues equivalents to keep my job, since the plant is on federal property. Yes, that is completely unconstitutional, but it is federal labor law. Anyway, on Sunday 90% of the union morons voted to go on strike. They are paid much more than the average worker in this region and pay less out-of-pocket for their healthcare. The company proposal would have increased the healthcare costs to what is normal around Fort Worth. It would also have put new hires into 401(k) plans for their retirements instead of pension plans. Again this is normal for almost every company in the South and West, and is becoming the norm nationwide. These two portions of the contract were deemed unacceptable by the Obama worshipping union leadership, so they convinced the workers that they were getting screwed. Meanwhile, Congress and foreign governments are telling Lockheed that they must reduce the costs of the F-35 or the program will face big cutbacks. In other words, if costs keep rising, the union jobs will be lost, but the union is demanding that costs continue to rise.

I) This is your hysterically funny headline of the week. “Ron Paul Wins Washington, On Track to be Nominated at 2012 GOP Convention”! First of all, the Washington STATE convention isn’t until next month. Next, on that day where Paul possibly picked up 11 delegates, Mitt Romney won over 200. Romney will have the nomination sewn up in the next 3 weeks, and the Paulbots will start screaming foul and pledging to vote for Paul in November anyway, meaning that they want Barack Obama to win.

J) Americans still blame “big oil” and the eeeevillll “speculators”, if you believe the mainstream media and the Democratic Party (sorry for the repeat). People who actually use their brains know otherwise, and now there is a video that shows how the EPA attacked the fossil fuels industry as part of their agenda. Let’s see how the Administration tries to spin this one.

K) One of the few things that Congress is actually REQUIRED to do under the Constitution is to produce an annual budget for the government. The Senate, under the esteemed leadership of Harry Reid, has not produced a budget since before Barack Obama became President. Heck, nowadays the Democrats on the Senate Budget Committee aren’t even attending the meetings, and Reid has flat-out stated that he will not consider any budget before the election.

“To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.” –Thomas Jefferson

Y’all can take this past week and have it. Besides all of the bovine fecal matter involved with the Zimmerman-Martin affair, I was forced to miss work on Monday and shell out over $11K for a new air conditioner unit after the previous one almost burned the house down. I need some Rahr & Son’s Iron Thistle, but the shelves are almost bare of this great seasonal brew. At least all of the reports have the Solicitor General getting his arse handed to him in the SCOTUS Obamacare proceedings.

A) Let’s start with the Fool of the Week Award, and in a big surprise it goes to Barack Obama’s imitation of Ron Paul. Obama says the US needs to be the world leader in nuclear disarmament. As long as the technology is available, there will be nuclear weaponry. Why would we disarm ourselves when we know good and well that the Chinese, Russians, Pakistanis, Indians, Iranians, and North Koreans would never do so? The only thing Barack Obama wants the US to be the world leader in is baring our throats to our enemies.

B) Speaking of baring our throats to our enemies, Barack Obama has signaled to the Soviet Unio…er, Vlad the Impa…, his good buddy Vladimir that if he manages to win re-election, he will be more than happy to negotiate away our missile defense systems in Europe and elsewhere. The man is nothing short of a traitor. At least there are some in Congress and other areas that are already putting their opposition on record and calling Obama out on this issue.

C) The Zimmerman-Martin affair has taken many turns over the past week. Despite all of the hoodie-wearing protests around the country (egged on by the left wing media), mostly blacks, college students, and college professionals who know nothing of the facts but want justice based on perceived racism, the facts of the incident are emerging and they show the sweet, innocent, young Trayvon Martin to be the attacker, which is why George Zimmerman was not arrested. This has not stopped such illegal activity by liberals such as noted racist liberal Spike Lee repeatedly Tweeting George Zimmerman’s home address out so his followers could harass the victim, protesters using this as an excuse to ransack a Walgreen’s Drug Store (par for the course with race-based protesters), and the New Black Panther Party putting up “wanted dead or alive” posters and a $10,000 bounty on the kidnapping of Zimmerman.

D) With the New Black Panther Party committing multiple felonies with their posters and bounty, including inciting violence and suborning kidnapping across state lines, you would think that there would be a federal investigation and arrests of much of the NBPP leadership. Then again, we have the Affirmative Action Attorney General, who has stated that he will never prosecute black perps if their victims are not black and who quashed the case against the NBPP for their blatant voter intimidation during the Obalection of 2008, running his Injustice Department. So much for any justice against these people, who now KNOW they are above the law.

E) Since Jesse Be The Jackson and the Not-So-Reverend Al immediately got involved, screaming RACISM all the way, you have to know that there was not a bit of racism involved and that the story they were spinning was a LONG way from the truth. Duke Lacrosse? Tawana Brawley? Jena Six? What is in it for these two race-hucksters and shakedown artists?

F) Even President Obama came out with race-baiting comments against Zimmerman before he knew any of the facts, just like he did when a white cop arrested a black man seen breaking into a house at Harvard a couple of years ago.

G) To wrap up this part of the column, we have to ask why this case of a black man getting shot in an altercation in which he was probably the aggressor has gotten so much publicity and attention, most of it in the form of lies about racism, when another case from five years ago that included a lot of REAL racism, horrific torture, and brutal murders of two victims received almost no attention, no mass protests, and no public bounties on the killers.

H) Every once in a while, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution engages in random acts of real journalism. In 2008 and 2009, they reported on improbable results in test scores in the Atlanta Public Schools, which resulted in a major investigation that uncovered over 180 principles, teachers, and other staffers tampering with the testing to improve the scores. The newspaper has done another series of investigations into public school testing around the nation, and there seem to be a lot of school districts engaging in possible cheating and/or tampering. Some of the districts highlighted are in North Texas, but the teachers unions and district superintendants say that they won’t do any investigations. The Texas Education Agency spokesperson even gave this comment (can you spot the big error in this statement from someone involved in EDUCATION?): “Although there may be 50 students in year one and 50 students in year one, there is no reason to believe these are the same students.”

I) Here is your Laughingly Idiotic Statement by a Liberal of the Week. Put your beverage down and swallow before opening the link. You have been warned.

J) Just when you thought the liberals running our public schools couldn’t get any more brazen in their liberal indoctrination tactics, we get a Virginia teacher assigning his students to do opposition research on GOP Presidential candidates to be sent to the DNC. Folks, I can’t make this stuff up!

K) I haven’t watched the whole video, so I don’t know if these “65 most outrageous lies by President Obama” are from just this week, this month, this year, or how long. Considering his long-recorded lack of truthfulness, I wouldn’t be surprised if they weren’t all from the past 3 months.

L) While the sane members of Congress are searching high and low for ways to reduce spending, King Barack has decided to spend $770,000,000 to fight non-existent man-made Glo-Bill Warming in developing countries. I wonder what campaign donor will be getting that money to spend fighting a myth, only to have his “company” go bankrupt next year after spending the money on salaries and benefits only. Where did he get authorization for that expenditure?

M) While we are on the subject of Barack Obama wasting our money, we have the story of the Apologist In Chief giving out tens of thousands of dollars to pay for the deaths of the Afghans killed by the head case Staff Sergeant. Has Afghanistan paid for the murders of Americans by members of the Afghan military or by terrorists based in Afghanistan? Did Congress authorize this spending? The anti-American occupying the White House needs to be kicked out of his residence!

N) Finally there is a judge who has the intestinal fortitude to rule against the envirowacko socialists of the EPA. In a case involving mountaintop mining in West By God Virginia, the Army Corps of Engineers granted the permit including water pollution, but the EPA tried to void the permit. The judge told the EPA to pack sand.

O) The Crawfish encourages all of his readers to check out this website and sign their petition, even though his wife loves the place.

“To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.” –Thomas Jefferson

It is looking more and more like the GOP establishment is going to coronate Mittens as the GOP nominee. Almost all of the W Administration has endorsed him, as has Juan McLame and Bob Dole (yes, he is still alive). The only reason Romney has been winning the primaries so far has been his exorbitant spending and the outrageous spending of his superPACs. The establishment wants a liberal to run against a super-liberal, just like in 76, 88, 92, 96, 2000, 04, and 08.

A) The Army Staff Sergeant who went on the killing spree in Afghanistan should not have been there. He had already been wounded twice in combat (traumatic head injury and partial loss of a foot), had been deployed three times before, and was told he wasn’t going on this deployment. The more that is uncovered about him shows that he has been a mental wreck for some time, and probably should have been dismissed from the service because of his issues. The most telling part of this story is found in the final paragraph of the linked article. “The base’s medical center is being investigated for allegedly down-grading post traumatic stress diagnoses to other mental illnesses that do not prevent deployment or qualify soldiers for disability payments.” Yes, folks. This is the kind of health care that Barack Obama wants to give to all Americans.

B) Now who do you think once said that we need to “really BRAINWASH (emphasis mine) people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way”? Well, that would be the Affirmative Action Attorney General, who was then a US Attorney on his way to becoming Deputy Attorney General in the Clinton Administration. He went on to say: “What we need to do is change the way in which people think about guns, especially young people, and make it something that’s not cool, that it’s not acceptable, it’s not hip to carry a gun anymore, in the way in which we changed our attitudes about cigarettes.”

C) Poll Katz e-mailer REC48 sent along this link for all of y’all to bookmark. Lots of good arrows for your anti-liberal quivers.

D) Proving that some people are just simply idiots, we have this story from North Texas.

E) No wonder the Administration went after Rush Limbaugh so fiercely when he countered the preposterous “free contraception is the biggest need for women’s health” line of propaganda from the Democrats. They knew that Rush was about to start unleashing the truth against everything they have been saying for the past few weeks, and everything they will say before the election. They knew that Rush has the ability to make ordinary Americans see the contradictions between the words of Obama and reality. When people are presented with the truth, Obama really does look silly.

F) If somebody has the time, please look up the House and Senate votes for this new law and send me the links. I want to see exactly what members of Congress oppose free speech in America.

G) A real conservative leader who is running for the Senate seat being vacated by RINO Kay Bailey Hutchison has put up his own version of the March Madness brackets for folks to fill out. This one has absolutely nothing to do with basketball, and everything to do with our failed President. Kudos to the Tom Leppert for US Senate campaign.

H) An Obama supporter issued a bunch of death threats against a public official who supports the Constitution and law & order. I don’t expect to see this story anywhere on MSNBC, See-BS, ABC, Noo Yawk Slimes, WaPo, etc.

I) So, how’s that new civility working out for the Obama campaign? I think it is working out about as well as Obama’s energy and oil policies, don’t you?

J) Speaking of civility, how do y’all like how the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia, who is the closest thing to the Pope that Islam has, called for the destruction of all churches in the Middle East? There has been exactly zero international media outrage over this, but what would happen if the Pope called for the destruction of all the mosques in Italy?

K) Sometimes I wonder why I don’t read more from Roger Hedgecock. When I was in a Navy avionics school in San Diego for a few months in 2003, I listened to his show almost every day. He is a former mayor of that city, and a solid conservative. If you are wondering what would happen to the USA if Obama were to be re-elected and Red Nanny P-Lousy were to regain her gavel, the former mayor is already living in that nightmare.

L) Another former California gummint official has written this comparison between his home state and the state he now calls home. More and more people are realizing what a trash heap California has become.

M) Representative Darryl Issa is still trying to hold the feet of this Administration to the fire. He is accusing Homeland Security Ditz Napolitano of using false information regarding illegal immigration in her Congressional testimony. Of course she has been lying. It is the standard practice of everyone associated with Barrack Hussein Soetero.

N) When the Obama campaign put out a seventeen minute campaign video narrated by Tom Hanks, we knew it would have a number of “errors”, but now it seems that His Majesty has gone so far as to lie about his own mother. The lies are getting so think that even the Washington Post is obliged to notice them. Hat tip goes to our old friend TampaDoc.

O) Barry even lied about one of his predecessors, and this one wasn’t named George W. Bush!

P) One of the darlings of the left has just hacked off the leftists. Red Nanny P-Lousy’s daughter Alexandra showed a video on Bill Maher’s show that showed her interviewing welfare leeches in Noo Yawk City. Their attitudes will make you want to reach through the screen to choke them. Miss Pelosi admitted that it was hard to get the video on the air, but of course she didn’t try Fox News.

Q) What would happen if a conservative actor made a racist statement at a Presidential event? The reaction would definitely be a lot more severe than that being shown regarding the statements by Robert DeNiro. He proves once again that he is nothing more than a highly overpaid line reader with an otherwise empty brain housing group.

“To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.” –Thomas Jefferson

Okay, The Crawfish apologizes for not posting in the past month. There were many reasons for this, but let it suffice to say that part of it was that my Give A Damn was on the fritz.

A) If you want to keep up-to-date on the media talking points and lies of the Administration, I suggest that you look up “Truth Team” on Facebook or on the web. I get their e-mail updates, and their spin is quite laughable until you realize that it is exactly what will be reported as gospel truth by ABC, See-BS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, and the rest.

B) Speaking of lies from the Democrats, here is some of the TRUTH about Sandra Fluke and the “free contraception is vital to women’s health” horse dung.

C) An American soldier walks out of his base in Afghanistan and guns down 16 Afghan civilians. The Obama Administration is “deeply concerned” and immediately offered apologies. Why aren’t they concerned when muslims commit mass murder on a regular basis? I’m surprised it has taken this long for one of our guys to snap like that. Meanwhile, the Religion of Perpetual Outrage is going bonkers over this and the desecrated Qurans that were desecrated by muslims before the Americans started to burn them. When they start apologizing for the massacres that muslims continually commit, I’ll consider giving a damn about their problems.

D) Meanwhile, Ron Paul still believes that the USA is the cause of Islamic terrorism, despite the reality of the Religion of Hate. Somebody really does need to give this link to him and all of his minions. Then, someone needs to force Paul and the rest of his military-hating followers to read this story about a couple of American Marines. Of course, the concepts of honor, courage, commitment, sacrifice, and bravery are lost on most Paulbots.

E) The Obama Administration is in the process of giving seven mineral-rich islands in the Aleutians to Vlad Putin and the Soviet Uni…er, Russia. Why has this story not gotten any headlines, and why haven’t our esteemed GOP leaders done anything about it? If this isn’t an impeachable offense, what is? It is time for this to become HEADLINE NEWS!

F) Back in November, Barack Obama signed an appropriations bill for Eric Holder’s Injustice Department. That bill contained language (put there by The Crawfish’s Senator, John Cornyn) that prohibited the feds from allowing a working gun to be transferred to anybody related to a drug cartel unless that gun was going to be tracked continuously. Fast forward to last month. His Majesty’s new budget proposal has language in it that would remove that prohibition and allow Holder and his boys to resume their operations in hope of using those arms to eventually overturn the 2nd Amendment.

G) To quote John McEnroe, “You cannot be serious!” The Obama Administrations budget proposal for the campaign year (wait…they have been in campaign year since 2007) is “WTF!”, which is what non-Marxists will say when they look at it.

H) Obama’s budget proposal also continues his war against American military families. He is proposing large hikes in out-of-pocket health care costs and massive hikes in the premiums for TRICARE, which is the health care insurance program for the military, families, and retirees. Any member of the military who supports Barack Obama is either a fool, a person like Samuel L. Jackson (who votes based on skin color instead of real issues), or both.

I) Tax Cheat Timmy admitted in testimony before Congress that Obama’s budget plan is “unsustainable”, and this is the second year in a row that he has said so. No wonder he says that he is going to be replaced next January no matter who wins the election.

J) In response to the “unsustainable” budgets of the Democrats, the GOP is putting up a plan that will balance the budget in five years. It is a start, but if these Senators and Representatives would sit down with Gunny G, Brain R, myself, and a few more of our cohorts, we could come up with a plan that would include a surplus within 3 years.

K) Here’s your green energy update. Electric cars cause more pollution than gasoline-powered cars. The study in this article was done in China, and focuses on the emissions associated with recharging the batteries. That is something that green car advocates keep forgetting to notice. Then there is the pollution associated with the manufacture and disposal of the batteries. That is some nasty stuff, and completely ruins the disposal sites. But take heart in this bit of news. Chevy has now announced that they are cancelling production of the taxpayer-subsidized Chevy Volt because of horrid sales and a complete lack of reliability.

L) The other heavily-taxpayer-subsidized “green” car isn’t faring much better than the Volt. Is there any other lemon out there that Obama can throw millions of OUR dollars at?

M) “The tea party has been much more effective than occupy. The people in tea party do a much better job of organizing to get their policy views made a part of this process than occupy people. The occupy people do more to make themselves feeling emotionally satisfied.” Can you believe that this quote came from Bawney Fwank?

N) The Democrats keep noting the support of a group called Catholics United whenever they discuss Obamacare’s contraception mandate. There is a reason Catholics United supports the Administration’s efforts and other activities by liberals that are clearly anti-Catholic or anti-Christian. The group is not a Catholic group at all, but rather is a George Soros-funded anti-Catholic front group. Yes, the Administration has lied again in their war against Christianity.

“To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.” –Thomas Jefferson

Well, Rick Santorum smoked Mittens and the Paulbots in three states last night. These were the first three states in which the Romney campaign didn’t absolutely FLOOD the airwaves with (mostly negative) ads, so the people actually heard the messages of the other candidates. And the results were…….

A) I think it was all planned. This was a deliberate set of events designed to spur massive donations over a few days and get publicity for the two organizations involved. I am, of course, referring to the abortion mills of Planned Parenthood and the Susan G. Komen Foundation. First, the Komen people announce that they are no longer going to send grant money to the abortion mills. Immediately following that move, donations poured into both organizations. The Komen Foundation got a huge influx of cash from pro-birth individuals and groups, while the abortion mills got big donations from the people who love to see babies murdered for the sake of convenience. A couple of days later, the Komen Foundation reversed their course, saying that they will indeed send money to the abortion mills. This news caused another big spree of donations from the baby killers, and praise from the anti-Catholic “Catholic” named Pelosi and her ilk. The grant money supposedly pays for breast cancer screenings, but why would a woman go to an abortion factory to get breast cancer screening instead of going to real doctors?

B) The previous Worst President in American History had to deal with a crisis of Islamists holding Americans hostage in a nation that was undergoing an Islamic revolution spurred on by the actions and words of that President. The new Worst President in American History now has his own crisis of the same kind. The only difference is that this time, the President is in full support of the Islamists.

C) Eric Holder, Barack Obama, and the rest of the Democratic hierarchy keep screaming that there is no such thing as voter fraud, so voter ID laws are simply not necessary and must be racist. Unfortunately, the evidence is mounting that there is voter fraud across the United States. The only reason that Democrats oppose voter ID laws is that the demographics of illegal voters are always heavily in favor of the Democrats.

D) Speaking of racism, if Democrat race baiters want to go after the true racists, they should look within their own party. Jim Moran really did the Democrats proud with his racist rants this past week. If a Republican said these kinds of things there would be a huge outcry from the liberal media, Democrat politicians, Jesse Be The Jackson, and the Not-So-Reverend Al “Tawana Brawley” Sharpton…and the rest of the GOP would publicly denounce the offender. So why do we only hear crickets?

E) Barack Obama truly jumped the shark this week. He claimed that Jesus himself would approve of the Democrats’ tax the rich proposals. Is the same Jesus of the Christian faith that proclaims “If a man shall not work, he shall not eat” (2 Thes 3:10), or “By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food” (Gen 3:19), or the faith that proclaims “Welfare and food stamps for all who don’t want to work, and those that do work will pay for it!”?

F) Meanwhile, the Obama Administration declared war on the Catholic Church by stating that the Obamacare mandates that insurance provided by employers cover abortion, sterilization, and contraception includes all organizations run by the Catholic Church except the Church itself. The Catholic Archbishops in the US responded by having a letter opposing the Administration read at all masses a week or so ago. The Administration then ORDERED that the letter was not to be read by any Catholic Chaplains in the Army. The US Government has no authority to censor what is said in ANY religious service, but they did it anyway. So not only does Obama oppose the Church, but also the First Amendment’s guarantee of the free exercise of religion.

G) The Catholic Church is vowing to make this a very big issue in this election year. Unfortunately for America and the Church, many Americans are the other type of RINO, Religious In Name Only. Take for example Manhattan resident Sur Thomas, who said: “I would certainly vote for Obama anyway. The Church has to get up to date.” WHAT? Lady, the CHURCH goes by the Word of God, which is timeless. God doesn’t need to get up to date. This is your basic model Democrat, believing that the Bible and the Constitution are flawed because they put limitations on the behavior of people and government. In reality, it is people and the government that are flawed, because they cannot follow simple rules.

H) One of the biggest CINOs (Catholic In Name Only) in the nation is former Queen of the House Red Nanny P-Lousy. When CNSNews asked her if she would stand with her fellow Catholics or stand with the Administration, she had the unmitigated gall to reply: “First of all, I am going to stick with my fellow Catholics in supporting the administration on this. I think it was a very courageous decision that they made, and I support it.” Does she actually believe that her fellow Catholics oppose each and every bishop, archbishop, cardinal, and the Pope? It was an either/or question, Lady Botox. You can’t answer yes to both sides. My question is: when is the Pope going to show some spine and start excommunicating Catholic politicians who vote for and publicly support abortion on a massive scale?

I) Professor Mike Adams brings us some actual GOOD news from the courts. The 6th Circuit Court of Appeals has UNANIMOUSLY ruled in favor of a school counselor and against the queer agenda’s intolerance of Christianity. This is a very important ruling for the First Amendment and religious values in America, and a severe blow to liberalism.

J) Here’s your latest update on the Religion of Peace, also known as the Followers of the Pedophilic False Prophet.

K) Meanwhile, we have a Supreme Court Justice who also doesn’t think very much of our Constitution. Ruthie Baby Ginsburg has a long history of opposition to the Constitution, with a stint on the board of directors and one as general counsel for the ACLU followed by time as a professor at Columbia Law School under her belt before her appointment to SCOTUS by William Jefferson “Perjury isn’t a crime if you lie about sex” Clinton. Now she is advising Egyptians to not use our Constitution as a guide for their own, since we don’t respect basic human rights. Really?

L) So the question remains, Mr. President, what exactly is your definition of “fairness”? I’m pretty sure it does not match the one from the dictionary: “the state, condition, or quality of being fair, or free from bias or injustice; evenhandedness.”

M) Ron Paul’s campaign is quite hypocritical. Paul and his supporters rail against internationalists like the Bilderberger Group, but his biggest financial supporter is a Bilderberger guy. In fact, Peter Thiel is a member of the steering committee for Bilderberger Group. Thiel is a co-founder of PayPal, and one of the leading homosexual Republicans.

N) As for Paul’s foreign policy ideals, here is a good essay on why they are nice as a thought, but completely ignorant of today’s real world. The biggest difference between my own thoughts and writings and those of the author of this essay is that he started off believing in Paul’s position, and what changed his mind is actually the Jonathah Kwitny book Endless Enemies: The Making of an Unfriendly World (1986). It is a book that argues the Paul side of the foreign policy argument, but it had the reverse effect on the author of the linked essay.

O) Fisker Automotive, a Swedish company, has already received $193 million of OUR tax dollars to build “green” cars for the one percent. The cars that they are producing cost over $100,000.00 each, but would cost a lot more without Barack Obama digging into our pockets to pay for them. Anyway, the company is laying off many of their American workers in order to receive more money from the government. Huh? If a product has profit potential, private industry companies would spend their own money developing it…just like embryonic stem cells. If they really showed promise, Big Pharma would be spending their own money to get the drugs developed FIRST, so they could have patent rights.

P) Back to “green” companies getting massive government support from His Majesty, this is what the taxpayers have shelled out huge money for. Epic fail.

Q) “Our Founders designed a system that makes it more difficult to bring about change than I would like sometimes.” So sayeth the man who also says that he DESERVES a second term. Yes, instead of blaming Bush this weekend, Obama blamed the Founding Fathers and that “flawed” Constitution of theirs for his not being able to “fundamentally change” our nation to fit the dream of George Soros. What other evidence do we need that he hates everything America has ever stood for?

R) In that interview, King Barack I touted his record of job creation. Unfortunately for America, Matt Lauer and the rest of the mainstream media are in a competition to see which of them can promote that line of horse dung the most. If these “news” organizations had a shred of integrity, they would pound this Administration for losing 1.7 million jobs and using fake numbers to lower their publicly stated unemployment rate. Propaganda Minister Carney even stated that dropping 1.2 million people from the labor force, which happened as those people ran out of unemployment benefits, so they are no longer counted as “unemployed”) is an “economic positive”. It is absolutely incredible that these people think America is so stupid that they would believe this tripe. The only thing “positive” about it is that it makes the unemployment rate look lower than it really is. Would they let George W. Bush get away with it? If you have any doubt to the impartiality of the so-called journalists in the mainstream media, this link should set you straight.

S) Ann-Marie Murrell does what we all want to do on occasion. She compares Obama’s words with his actions, and the big surprise is that Obama lies almost as much as Bill Clinton and Eric Holder combined! He almost makes this guy look honest.

“To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.” –Thomas Jefferson

2-1-2012 The Weekly Claw

Ahhhhhh. We are back to our normal posting day in the middle of the week. Since I just posted on Sunday, this column will have an abundance of articles about Ron Paul that I was saving for another special “Paul is an Idiot” column.

A) We’ll start off with something that hacks me off, and the anti-Constitutional explanation by liberal Romney-Republicans. The Florida legislature, lead by some of Romney’s minions, have drawn up their new redistricting map, and in doing so have purposely made it much harder for REAL conservative Allen West to retain his seat. The new district will now include far more registered Democrats than Republicans. Why would they do such a thing to a rising star of the party? Simple. West is a conservative and a favorite of the Tea Party. He is also a true leader. In other words, he is everything Mittens Romney is not. The RINOs explain that they had to draw the maps that way because of the Voting Rights Act, which is applied to the southern states that had a big history of discrimination and Jim Crow laws. Since this act does not apply equally to ALL states, it is by definition unConstitutional.

B) Can you believe that any Presidential candidate would say these words? “Why don’t they quit once the so-called harassment starts? Obviously the morals of the harasser cannot be defended, but how can the harassee escape some responsibility for the problem?’’ Ron Paul is actually defending such passages from his 1987 book. This guy is actually getting votes from people who consider themselves sane?

C) The Inventor of the Internet is not gonna be pleased with this story. According to research data just released by the British Met Office and the University of East Anglia Climate Research Unit (from where the whole Glo-Bull Warming e-mail scandal erupted), the warming cycle ENDED in 1997. Yes, Al Gore has been verifiably full of crap on this issue for 15 years. In spite of this bit of scientific FACT, his minions are now on a crusade to force television weatherguys and weathergals to be Glo-Bull Warming activists. They are highly upset that the local meteorologists concentrate on their own localities and the short-term, along with the tidbit that only 31% or so believe Al Gore. To quote Colonel Nathan R. Jessup, “YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH!”

D) So what is Ron Paul’s voting record on conservative issues? An examination of the facts might surprise some Paul supporters.

E) Michelle (***sigh***) Malkin has come out and made an endorsement, and it just so happens to be the candidate that I believe to be the best of the GOP bunch. Take a look at Michelle’s reasoning behind her pick of Rick Santorum.

F) Ron Paul even has his own Saul Alinsky/Jeremiah Wright figure in his background, a man who has helped Paul develop his foreign policy ideals. Robert Pape has worked with CAIR and Hamas to develop propaganda that blames the US and Israel for Islam’s hatred of all things non-muslim. One of their key points is that Islam has nothing to do with terrorism committed by Islamic and Islamist groups. All terrorism is because the US has been bombing the arabs for two decades and because Israel is “occupying” muslim land. Sorry, but the following command from the pedophilic false prophet Mohammed, which is contained in the charter of Hamas, was written over 13 CENTURIES ago: “The Day of Judgment will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdullah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.”

G) For those who do NOT believe that Islam is in the process of conquering Europe, please note that they are already trying to ban dogs from cities that have growing populations of the Followers of the Pedophilic False Prophet, and are instituting Sharia Law in other areas. A great (x17 or something) grandfather of my wife once led an army to stop the muslim invasion of Europe. Where is today’s Charles Martel?

H) The Second Worst President in American History was asked what he thought of Iran possibly already having their first nuclear fuel rod. He answered: “Well, of course, the religious leaders of Iran have sworn on their word of honor that they’re not going to manufacture nuclear weapons. If they are lying, then I don’t see that as a major catastrophe because they’ll only have one or two military weapons. Israel probably has 300 or so.” Hey Ron Paul Wannabe, Israel has weapons for self-defense. Iran has pledged to destroy Israel. If they get a nuke, they will use Hezbollah or Hamas to set it off in Tel Aviv. You don’t have any problem with that? On top of that, he believed what the religious leaders told him? What a moron. Islam COMMANDS that infidels are to be lied to in order to conceal muslim plans to destroy infidels and conquer the world.

I) For those who were so appalled by the Marines giving golden showers to dead Taliban, we present another episode of This Date in History, and look back ten years. Do you still believe our Marines are terrible animals?

J) The liberal war against all religions except Islam continues. HHS Secretary Sebelius has issued a statement saying that there will no longer be exemptions issued for religious non-profits concerning contraception. In other words, groups like Catholic Charities, who are run by religions that forbid contraceptive use, will be FORCED to provide coverage that offers those services for free. This is yet another reason for the Supreme Court to overturn Obamacare. This is WAAAAAY beyond any Constitutional authority. If it is not stopped now, the next step will be to force these organizations to cover abortions. The Catholic Church is not taking this lightly. Bishops across the country had protest letters read to their parishes during mass in response to this outrage.

K) In 2010, Ron Paul and Bawney Fwank put together a panel of “experts” to propose a plan to gut the American military. The panel was supposed to propose a “sustainable” military and was supposedly made up of people from across the political spectrum. In reality, the panel was made up of people from left wing groups that mostly had ties to George Soros. Does anybody out there still believe Paul when he claims that he wants a “robust” American military, when he has stated that he wants to slash military spending by 74%? The man is nothing but a liar.

L) Speaking of Ron Paul the Liar, he lied about Newt Gingrich being a draft dodger. Of course, Paul loves to point out how he served as a reason of why he cannot possibly be anti-military.

M) Newt is taking the attack to Romney, even as Mittens appears to be winning the Florida primary. Newt noted that in a recent interview George Soros said that there is no major difference between Romney and Obama. Newt also said: “The fact is I don’t believe the Republican party is going to nominate a liberal who is pro- abortion, pro gun-control pro tax-increase pro gay-rights and I don’t think Romney can frankly raise enough money to sustain the falsehoods that are the basis of his campaign.” I’m not as optimistic as Newt on that last point, since the GOP establishment is putting all of their money on the liberal.

“To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.” –Thomas Jefferson

First things first. No, I did not watch the State of the Union Campaign Speech and Lie Festival. I did not watch the GOP response, although I heard it was well done. That being said, don’t expect to see much on those topics this week.

Secondly, I will TRY to return my column to Wednesdays starting this week. The first Wednesday edition will include some of the Ron Paul material I’ve been saving up.

A) Lemme see if I’ve got this right. Ron Paul’s campaign CLAIMS to be getting more donations from the military than any other campaign, even though sources at bases around the country relay that there is NO support for the man who wants to slash 74% of the military budget. So we get to the first primary in a state that has a large military presence, and Paul finishes DEAD LAST. Then his campaign says that he is going to concentrate on the CAUCUS states of Nevada and Minnesota instead of competing in Florida, which just so happens to be a big military state. Sounds like he is AVOIDING the people that he claims to be getting support from!

B) Eric Holder has now been proven to have committed perjury in sworn testimony in Congressional hearings. The Department of Justice just released more documents concerning “Fast and Furious”, and included in it is confirmation that Holder was informed that Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered using Fast and Furious weapons 18 miles within the US border, and that Holder was informed THAT DAY. Holder testified that he didn’t learn about it until months later. So when are the Congressional Republicans going to have the gonads to start impeachment hearings?

C) On the other hand, we have a Republican who really is loved by the military. This one actually pays attention to the world beyond our borders and knows that slashing our military is the WRONG thing to do.

D) The Democratic Party is now officially against the Constitutional right of freedom of association. This is shown in Indiana, where the Democrats in the state legislature are imitating their Wisconsin brethren in becoming FLEEBAGGERS. They have left town to prevent the passage of legislation that would give FREEDOM to the workers of their state. The legislation would make Indiana a right to work state, meaning that workers could not be FORCED to join unions or pay union dues equivalents in order to have a job. Compulsory union membership, which The Crawfish has been subjected to, should be abolished nationwide. It is pure anti-American.

E) George Soros is now publicly stating that the worsening economy will lead to violence, which will lead to governmental crackdowns. Of course, we have been saying all along that this was part of the plan. Major violence would lead to suspensions of the Constitution and the cancellation of the November elections, with Obama taking dictatorial powers. Thanks for confirming the plans, Nazi-boy. Now the question becomes…when and where are they going to have their Reichstag Fire-style false-flag event?

F) Speaking of George Soros and violence committed by his associates, we have a story that shows the power of a liberal education establishment and a liberal press in a nation other than our own. Twenty percent of Germans today don’t know that Auschwitz was a death camp, although ninety percent knew it was a concentration camp.

G) Barack Obama is trying to BARELY keep his Marxist beliefs under cover, but he can’t really help himself. While his policies are heavily influenced by Marxism and fascism, he knows that he can’t blatantly come out and use the same words that Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Mussolini, and others used. In a video sent out to his supporters in advance of the State of the Union Address and Campaign Commercial, The Chosen One says: “I’m going to lay out a blueprint for an American economy that’s built to last. And most importantly, a return to American values of fairness for all, and responsibility from all.” Did he really go there? Yes, he said that the basic slogan of Marxists over the past 140 years is an American value. “From each according to his ability (AKA: “responsibility from all”), to each according to his needs (AKA: “fairness for all”).”

H) Of course, his Campaign Commercial of the Union was full of ideas that have proven to be nothing but flops, just like every liberal idea in history. The amazing thing here is that the Associated Press did the fact checking!

I) It gets better. Obama continually reused lines from his previous SOTU propaganda addresses. Evidently it was good comedy.

J) I’m not saying that the major media is supporting Obama at all costs, but check this one out. MSLSD’s Chrissy “Tingly Leg” Matthews told a Congressman that the unemployment rate is lower under Obama than it was under Bush. Sorry, but according to stats from the Department of Labor, we have 1.7 million FEWER non-farm jobs in America than we had when The Chosen One descended from the clouds of Invesco Field and assumed his throne at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

K) Here’s your weird news of the week. Some legislators in Florida are trying to force stadium and arena owners to abide by a previously overlooked clause in the law respecting sports venues built using public funds. It seems that the venues are supposed to be turned into homeless shelters when the sports teams are out of season. Can you think of any better way to cause the quick destruction of those buildings?

L) Since the Chevy Dolt has been such a success…er, well since it was such a good idea…uh, since the lefties love the idea behind it, California is now making it a state law that 1 of every 7 cars sold in California by 2025 must be electric or zero emission. First of all, this is yet another blow to consumer rights. If consumers don’t want the oversized golf carts, why should they be FORCED to buy them? Secondly, electric cars are NOT ZERO EMISSION! Where do these idiots think the electricity to charge the batteries comes from? In California, the electrical grid is already overloaded, and the supply is dwindling, so they want to add more drain to it? What kinds of power plants produce that electricity? Third, if they want to increase the demand by that amount, they had better build at least two new nuclear power plants in California before then, and we know the envirowackos won’t allow that to happen. The crazy thing about this is that the automakers and auto dealers SUPPORT the new law. Why?

M) This past week saw the declaration of bankruptcy by not one, not two, but THREE “green energy” companies that received handouts from the Obama Administration. The only thing “shovel ready” about the so-called “stimulus” projects seems to be the burying of these companies, and the taxpayer funds given to them.

N) We have found the reason that Barack Obama is killing, against the wishes of his union thugs, the Keystone XL pipeline project. It seems that the pipeline would take some business away from Burlington Northern Santa Fe rail lines. Who is one of the major owners of BNSF LLC? Warren Buffett.

“To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.” –Thomas Jefferson

1-21-2012 The Weekend Claw

Another weird week has passed, in the political world and in the weather around the country. Even Casa Crustacean saw today’s high temperature a whole 30 degrees colder than yesterday. We only got up to 50 today.

A) A Clinton-appointed federal judge is telling students in Arizona to sue their school districts because they have removed La Raza studies, instituted under direction of the Clinton White House, in accordance with state law. The judge is telling the students that this violates their 1st Amendment rights. Really? Advocating that large parts of the USA rightfully belong to Mexico and causing racial strife is the goal of La Raza (“The Race”, itself a racist statement), so the state is correct in saying that this advocacy should be banned from schools supported by taxpayer dollars.

B) Let’s go back to last week for a moment. The big controversy over some Marines urinating on dead terrorists is still going strong, but let’s look at it in a different way, shall we? If you wiz on a crucifix and put it in a jar of urine, you are an artist exercising your First Amendment rights and are celebrated by the American media and the Democratic Party. If you cover a painting of the Virgin Mary in elephant crrrap, you are an artist exercising your First Amendment rights and are celebrated by the American media and the Democratic Party. If you urinate and defecate all over a public park and on police cars, you are a principled member of the 99% protesting against the evil of a world that isn’t yet socialist, and you are celebrated by the American media and the Democratic Party. If you urinate on the body of a dead Islamic terrorist, you are evil incarnate and vilified by the American media and the Democratic Party. Welcome to Bizarro World.

C) I know that y’all will find this absolutely shocking, but Barack Obama is going to break the law. He flat out said to both Houses of Congress that he will indeed break federal law and give missile technology to the Soviet Unio…er, Russia, who will then pass along the information to Iran, China, and North Korea. So, which side is he on again?

D) The Malignant Dwarf is at it again. Dennis Kucinich, who is perhaps the only member of Congress that is nuttier than Ron Paul and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, is reviving the Gas Price Spike Act, which would put a government board in charge of deciding what prices and profits are “fair” in the oil and gas bidness. Ed Morrissey explains in this article how the two top industries on the Democrat’s “Villain List”, oil and insurance, are not really as profitable as the liberals portray. Imagine that…liberals don’t have any clue on how businesses really operate. On top of that, who gets the most profits from gasoline sales? The federal government taxes gasoline at 18.4 cents per gallon, and diesel fuel at 24.4 cents per gallon. The states pile on with more taxes, averaging 28.6 cents per gallon in 2009, and some local governments get a penny or two as well. In January of 2011, the average tax on gasoline totaled 48.1 cents per gallon, with diesel at 53.1 cents per gallon. Yes, GOVERNMENT gets the most profit on gasoline and diesel, and they don’t have any expenses or perform any work to get that money.

E) Here’s something that hasn’t made it into the main stream media. According to the latest count, Rick Santorum was actually the winner in Iowa, and there are some votes that are still missing. Too bad this message is counter to what the media and the GOP establishment want you to know.

F) Just in case y’all didn’t know what the result would be from years of liberal indoctrination in the schools and liberal city governance, this story will show you the depths to which the mentality of Washington, DC, has fallen. I couldn’t make this up if I tried.

G) Once again, while the Democrats and Eric Holder try to say that voter ID laws are raaaaacist and that voter fraud never happens, we have more evidence that voter fraud is a standard practice for the Democrats in Noo Yawk state. A leader of the Mississippi NAACP was convicted on voter fraud charges last year. Even Barack Obama’s own semi-home state of Corruptionois provides even more evidence, with sixteen counties having more registered voters than they have living voting age residents. Of course, we have always known that Illinois cemeteries are full of loyal Democrat voters.

H) Newsweek magazine isn’t even attempting to hide their bias now. Their cover story in the latest issue is written by Andrew Sullivan, the guy who tried for months to develop evidence for his smears against Sarah Palin, such as Trig being Bristol’s baby instead of Sarah’s. The title of his newest article, according to the mag’s cover, is “Why are Obama’s critics so dumb?” No wonder Newsweek was recently sold by the left wing Washington Post at a ridiculously low price of ONE DOLLAR. Then again, the buyer is the husband of Representative Jane Harmon (Donkey-California). This means that Newsweek is now the official “news magazine” (aka propaganda arm) of the Congressional Democrats.

I) The Keystone Pipeline is going to be killed. Hitlery! and her cabal in the State Department are recommending against it, even though the most recent legislation concerning the pipeline mandates that only Obama can make the decision…but since when do Democrats care what laws actually say. So Obama and the leadership of his party are going to listen to the environmental extremists instead of providing jobs and energy capacity for America. The Democrats are blaming Republicans, saying there haven’t been enough environmental studies to allow the project to continue on such short notice, even though they have had over three years to study it. They say the studies can’t be completed until after the election. It figures that Hitlery! would be involved, since it was her Administration that gave China military secrets and missile guidance technology in exchange for campaign donations. Why shouldn’t she be in favor of the Canadians routing the pipeline to west coast terminals owned by China?

J) President Obama concurred with the State Department and killed the pipeline, then had the audacity to say that extended unemployment benefits would provide more jobs than the pipeline. Huh? Keeping people unemployed provides more jobs than a project that the low-ball estimates say would create 200,000+ jobs? That echoes what Red Nanny P-Lousy has repeatedly said, which means it must be the official policy of the Democratic Party that the American people are so stooooopid as to believe that illogical nonsense.

K) Not only does the nonsense of keeping people unemployed as a job creation measure not make any sense, it is directly contrasted by the President’s own jobs council, which this week called for MORE oil pipeline construction and MORE drilling in order to spur job creation. The council notes that these are the positions of the House GOP, but that the Senate Democrats and President Obama have been blocking them.

L) The Obama Administration took another swipe at the American jobs market when they gave a billion dollar contract for Air Force light support aircraft to a Brazilian company with connections to China, George Soros, and Iran. The company that did NOT get the contract is the American company of Hawker-Beechcraft.

M) Microsoft is developing an app for smart phones, and this app has the NAACP’s knickers in a twist. The app would help drivers and pedestrians avoid high crime areas of cities. Since the black areas of all major cities are also the high crime areas, this is seen by the race pimps as raaaaacist. The Dallas NAACP leader will be “up in arms” if this app goes online, and is upset that it will guide people away from MLK Blvd. Well, since MLK Blvd in every city happens to be in a high crime area, the proper response would be for the NAACP to clean up their own neighborhoods!

N) The PC Police are at it again regarding school mascots. Over the past two decades innocuous names such as the Marquette Warriors have been changed because they were racially insensitive, even if they weren’t (all current and former members of the US military are WARRIORS!). Now comes another reason to nix a name. A Utah school board polled the future students of a high school that would be opening soon. The winning mascot name was “Cougars”, but the school board said that “Cougars” would be insensitive to women since that is also a term for a middle-aged woman who is sexually aggressive toward younger men. How many of those middle-aged women would be students? None, so there is no problem.

“[A] wise and frugal government … shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.” –Thomas Jefferson, First Inaugural Address, 1801

1-14-2012 The Weekend Claw

The Crawfish must apologize to his readers for not posting any columns last weekend. My hard drive died and the recovery disk was junk. I had to get new disks from HP after replacing the drive unit. I also had problems restoring my files and even lost a ton of internet bookmarks, which will reduce the variety of sources used for these columns until I remember all of those sites.

A) Ron Paul and the Democrats don’t want y’all to notice how China is building up their military forces and making threats around the South China Sea and Indian Ocean, but at least the US Navy is still paying attention. In case y’all have missed it, which is easy with the lack of media coverage, China is now operating their first aircraft carrier, with plans for many more. They are also flight testing their first stealthy strike fighter. They have something like 40,000,000 more men than women, and the only way to start balancing that out is through a very bloody war. They still wish to conquer Taiwan, and now they wish to dominate the entire region.

B) The Taliban and Afghan leader Karzai have their turbans in a twist, and that means the Obama Administration has to get miffed. It seems some Marines were filmed urinating on some dead Taliban. There is outrage galore. The Noo Yawk Slimes will probably run it on their front page for a month or two, like they did with Abu-Ghraib. The Crawfish counters this wailing and gnashing of teeth with a couple of points. First, why is this considered outrageous behavior, when beheading innocents and holding up the head on video isn’t, nor is shooting dozens of school kids like at Breslan? Second, it was probably the closest thing to a bath that those Taliban had received in the past decade. The only thing that offended me was the fact that the bodies were still recognizable as humanoids. That means that the Marines didn’t use enough firepower or explosives. Go watch HBO’s “The Pacific” and tell me that these Marines were sooooo bad.

C) The Obama-Holder war against religion, which is just a small part of the war against religion (except Islam) being waged by the Democratic Party, the media, Hollyweird, and powerful leftists throughout the USA and the world, was delivered a solid kick to the junk by the Supreme Court. In a UNANIMOUS decision, the Court ruled that the Constitution does not allow the government to have any say in the decision of a religious entity, in this case the Lutheran Church, to hire or fire a minister. A female had been trained and accepted as a Lutheran minister, but evidently did something to convince the Church’s governing body that she was unfit to be a minister for their Church. When they fired her, she claimed discrimination. The Obama Administration, seeing another opportunity to diminish religious liberties in America, immediately joined her case. Chief Justice Roberts and the entire Court stood tall for the First Amendment. Now, will they do the same for the anti-Christian aspects of Obamacare?

D) Here is The Crawfish’s nominee for “Mother of the Year” for 2011. This young lass lost her husband to cancer on Christmas Day. Then she had armed men trying to break into her home on New Year’s Eve. She went to protect her baby, and called 9-1-1. She told the operator that she was armed and asked for a police officer to respond immediately. The operator let her know that it would be okay if she shot to defend herself after the men got into the house. One perp eventually got arrested. The other one assumed ambient room temperature. Whenever a liberal brings up gun control, just remind them that when seconds count, as in this case, the police are always just minutes away.

E) Poll Katz e-mailer Bill sent along word that President Obama is considering a 40% tax on aspirin. Evidently this is because aspirin is white and it works.

F) The judge for the trial of former Democrat Senator and Vice Presidential nominee “Silky Pony” Edwards says that Edwards has a “life-threatening” condition. Did he run out of hairspray?

G) Here we go again with liberals at an unConstitutional government agency running amok. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is warning employers that any requirement that a job applicant be a high school graduate or equivalent violates the Americans with Disabilities Act. Where does the Constitution give the federal government the authority to interfere with the private business contracts between an employer and an employee, and since when does not wanting an education qualify as a disability?

H) A one-month old in New Mexico was raped and murdered by an illegal alien in the first week of 2012. Since the perp was a non-dryback, the major media and the Obama Administration acted like nothing happened.

I) Speaking of media cover-ups, there was a mass murder in the Fort Worth-Dallas Metroplex on Christmas Day. Members of a family were shot to death while opening their presents. The killer was the estranged Dad, who was there in a Santa suit. The cops said that motive was “unimportant”, which is unusual until you notice that the killer was a muslim who didn’t like the fact that his family was not adhering to Sharia Law. They had become Westernized, so he did his religious duty according to the Quran and the faithful Followers of the Pedophilic False Prophet. Whenever the motive is Islam, the media, the Democratic Party, and some law enforcement agencies consider the motive “unimportant” or “unknown”.

J) While Sultan Bu’raq bin al Obama and his party refuse to acknowledge Islamic terrorism, they are also failing to acknowledge that there are now 35 Islamic terrorist training centers around our nation. Of course, since these people are not white Christian veterans they are to be ignored by Eric Holder and Janet Napolitano.

K) Here’s more on how Obama, the Democratic Party, most of the media, and Ron Paul are ignoring the truth about the Muslim Brotherhood, Islam, and Islamists. Then again, are they ignoring the truth or are they just trying to shield the truth from the American public?

L) Check out this graph from the St. Louis Federal Reserve and note how national debt as a percentage of GDP has shot up since Harry Reid took over the Senate, which coincided with Nancy Pelosi taking over the House, and Barack Obama being a Senator. Then watch it go much higher after Barack Obama became President. Yes, those numbers went up under W, but it took Democrats to make them skyrocket.

M) I brought this story to y’all a few months back, as a co-worker of mine was from that area. Now it has FINALLY gone to SCOTUS. Some of the Justices, especially Justice Alito, seemed to be highly offended by the actions of the EPA and the government. Let’s hope that the rights of property owners are, for a change, upheld.

N) His Majesty took the time to jack with American military personnel and their families over the Christmas holiday. The man has absolutely zero respect for our men and women in uniform. He’s in it for the power and whatever perks he can squeeze out of the taxpayers. I’d say that he is a jackass, but that would be an insult to Democrats and other jackasses.

O) It must be nice to live in a world completely void of reality, like Debbie Wasserman Shultz does. Here’s the latest quote from the one brain cell wonder: “You know, I’m a hundred percent confident that the people of Iowa and the American people will win the day on November 6th of this year when President Obama is re-elected because of his policies, because of the fact that he has brought this country out of the worst economic disaster that we faced since the Great Depression and the people of America know.”

P) Hmmmm. It looks like someone needs to be arrested next January! We know it won’t happen under the current Administration.

Q) The Administration and Incompetano’s Department of Homeland Insecurity screwed up big time. They had officers with semi-automatic weapons set up a checkpoint outside of a Florida Social Security office, and they were checking IDs. I thought checking IDs was only something those RAAAAAAACIST Republicans wanted to do!

R) Meanwhile, there is evidence starting to pile up showing that many non-living people and people who live in other states are indeed voting in elections. James O’Keefe and his organization even made videos during the New Hampshire primaries showing election officials handing out ballots in the names of dead people. Just imagine what it is like in Chicago! Now remember that the two main lines of reason that the Democrats are using in court action against voter ID laws are that the law disenfranchises the poor, especially blacks, and that voter fraud never happens in the US. This kinda shoots that last one down.

S) Barack Obama’s drunk driving illegal alien uncle STILL has not gone to trial. On top of that, his lawyer is demanding to get a copy of the driving record of the cop who arrested Uncle Onyango. What does the COP’S driving record have to do with the illegal alien driving drunk? Why would any judge allow this tripe? The judge must be a good Democrat hoping for an appointment to the federal bench.

T) Those folks at Solyndra, you know…the ones who got a $500 million gift from Obama and an illegal change in bankruptcy laws so that they got to keep some of the money in order to make donations to Obama and his friends…well, their bankruptcy attorneys were in court asking the judge to let the company hand out bonuses, supposedly to keep their remaining workers at the company. One worker who made over $206,000.00 last year would get another $50,000.00 if the plan is approved. I’m sorry, but if that person made over $200K last year, they don’t need any more of the taxpayers’ money. If they want to pay bonuses, they should pay them from the pockets of the people who have profited from Obama’s gift and from the campaigns that received donations from that company.

“[A] wise and frugal government … shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.” –Thomas Jefferson, First Inaugural Address, 1801

12-28-2011 Special “Ron Paul is a Lunatic” Edition of The Claw

This is a special edition of The Claw dedicated to exposing the insanity of Ron Paul. The first parts are taken directly from the transcript of the Sioux City Fox News debate, with my own commentary tossed in. Since this column went so long, and I have soooo much more on this topic, I will run another special edition next week.

RON PAUL

The main problem we have is the government is too big and the debt is too big and you have to cut spending so you have to get people to come together. They have been coming together to increase spending for decades. We have to get them to come together to do the opposite.

But there are two factions up there, one wants welfare and the other want warfare around the world and policing the world. So you go to people who like warfare you say give me half of the cuts that have to be in the welfare. Go to welfare people and say give me the cuts to cut the oversea warfare spending and bring people together and live up to what they say.

THE CRAWFISH
Since Ron Paul also stated that he would be cutting the budget by a trillion dollars, this means that he would be cutting national defense by 500 billion. The 2012 national defense budget is 682 billion. This means he wants to cut our national defense by over 73%. That is beyond insane. Cutting out unConstitutional departments, agencies, and entitlements would bring our budget into balance.

MODERATOR
Congressman Paul, many Middle East experts now say Iran may be less than one year away from getting a nuclear weapon. Now, judging from your past statements, even if you had solid intelligence that Iran, in fact, was going to get a nuclear weapon, President Paul would remove the U.S. sanctions on Iran, included those added by the Obama administration. So, to be clear, GOP nominee Paul would be running left of President Obama on the issue of Iran?

RON PAUL

But I’d be running with the American people, because it would be a much better policy. For you to say that there is some scientific evidence and some people arguing that maybe in a year they might have a weapon, there’s a lot more saying they don’t have it.

There’s no U.N. evidence of that happening. Clapper at the — in our national security department, he says there is no evidence. It’s no different than it was in 2003. You know what I really fear about what’s happening here? It’s another Iraq coming. There’s war propaganda going on.

And we’re arguing — to me, the greatest danger is that we will have a president that will overreact and we will soon bomb Iran. And the sentiment is very mixed. It’s — it’s very mixed even in Israel. You know, there — the — a head of the security for Israel, who just recently retired, said that it wouldn’t make sense to do this, to take — to take them out, because they might be having a weapon. So I would say that the greatest danger is overreacting. There is no evidence that they have it. And it would make more sense — if we lived through the Cold War, which we did, with 30,000 missiles pointed at us, we ought to really sit back and think and not jump the gun and believe that we are going to be attacked. That’s how we got into that useless war in Iraq and lost so much in Iraq.

THE CRAWFISH

First of all, there is puh-lenty of evidence that Iran is building nukes. They are working with the North Koreans on bombs and missiles. The latest North Korean underground bomb test was publicly called a failure by military sources in the West, but those same sources have quietly acknowledged that the readings of the test would be exactly what they would expect if the NorKs were testing an EMP weapon.

Secondly, there’s a huge difference between the Soviet Union of the Cold War and Iran of today. The Sovs were lead by sane people without death wishes. They did not want to risk a full-blown nuclear war. Iran’s Mad Mullahs and I’minajihad have said that they WILL use nukes if they get them. They have pledged to exterminate our ally Israel. They WILL give those nukes to groups like Hamas and Hezbollah. If they get killed in a reprisal strike, that is fine with them. They would then be martyrs for Islam. One of the first indicators we will see if Iran finishes a nuclear weapon will be a large cloud rising over Tel Aviv.

Third, not only did we actually find WMDs in Iraq in the form of chemical artillery shells, but that was not the real reason to invade in 2003. You see, we signed (and the Senate ratified) a ceasefire accord with Iraq in 1991. Those accords said that if Iraq violated the terms, the Desert Storm Coalition was required to reform and militarily remove Saddam’s government from power. Bill Clinton said multiple times during his Administration that Saddam was breaking the terms. Clinton violated the law by only ordering pin prick airstrikes instead of reforming the Coalition and invading Iraq. George W. Bush, for all his faults, was 100% in compliance with Constitutional law by invading in 2003.

MODERATOR

Iran is reportedly running exercises on closing the Strait of Hormuz, a key passage, as you know, for global trade. Now what should the U.S. response be if Iran were to take that dramatic step?

RON PAUL

(Screeching) This is — the plans are on the book. All they talk about is, when are we, the West, going to bomb Iran? So why wouldn’t they talk about — they don’t have a weapon, they don’t have a nuclear weapon, why wouldn’t they try to send out some information there and say, you know, if you come and bomb us, we might close the Straits of Hormuz down.

So already the President, and I think he is wisely backing off on the sanctions, because it’s going to be an economic calamity if you take all the oil out of Europe. So I think that makes sense.
He knows these sanctions are overreaching. Sanctions are an act of war when you prevent goods and services from going into a country. We need to approach this a little differently. We have 12,000 diplomats in our services. We ought to use a little bit of diplomacy once in a while.

THE CRAWFISH

Wow, that made almost zero sense. Since when does Iran respond to diplomacy? On top of that, if Iran wasn’t building nukes, why would they refuse to allow inspectors back into their nuclear facilities to verify the claims?

MODERATOR

Senator Santorum, you have a very different thought about the threat from Iran. For several years, according to the U.S. military leaders, Iran has provided training, funding, and lethal arms to jihadists killing American soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. Are those acts of war?

RICK SANTORUM

They have been continually. They just tried to plan an attack here in this country, killing the Saudi ambassador. They have been at war with us since 1979. The IEDs that have killed so many soldiers, they are manufactured in Iran.

This is — Iran is not any other country. It is a country that is ruled by the equivalent of al Qaeda on top of this country. They are a radical theocracy. The principle virtue of the Islamic Republic of Iran, according to President Ahmadinejad, is not freedom, opportunity, its martyrdom.

The idea, Ron, that mutual assured destruction, like the policy during the Cold War with the Soviet Union would work on Iran when their principle virtue is martyrdom, is — mutual assured destruction with respect to Iran would not be any kind of, you know, idea of preventing a war. It would be an inducement to a war.

This is what their objective is. Their objective is to in fact create a calamity. This is what their theology teaches. They believe that it is their mission to take on the West. They don’t hate us because of what we do or the policies we have. They hate us because of who we are and what we believe in.

And we need to make sure that they do not have a nuclear weapon. And we should be working with the state of Israel right now. We should use covert activity. And we should be planning a strike against their facilities and say, if you do not open up those facilities and not close them down, we will close them down for you.

THE CRAWFISH

Well said, Senator. While you are correct that Iran has only been at war with us since 1979 (thank you, James Earl Carter), Islam has been at war with the entire non-muslim world for over 13 centuries. Their holy book commands that all non-believers be converted, enslaved (the term is dhimmitude), or put to the sword. The whole world is to be conquered and a worldwide Caliphate is to be implemented.

MODERATOR

Governor Romney, this week President Obama said the U.S. asked Iran to give our downed high-tech drone back. As you know, the Iranians have it on display. They claim they are extracting data from it and they have no intention of giving it back.

Yesterday you called the president’s response, quote, “extraordinarily weak and timid.” Now in your book you write, quote, “weakness invites challenges, acts of intimidation, acts of aggression, and sometimes war.”

So in this case, are President Obama’s actions inviting war?

MITT ROMNEY

Absolutely. Does timidity and weakness invite aggression on the part of other people? Absolutely. A strong America, a strong America is the best ally peace has ever known. This is a president with — the spy drone being brought down, he says pretty please? A foreign policy based on pretty please? You have got to be kidding.

This is a president who fundamentally believes that this next century is the post-American century. Perhaps it’s going to be the Chinese century. He is wrong. It has to be the American century. America has to lead the free world.

And the free world has to lead the entire world. The right course under President Obama’s plans is to shrink our military, thinking somehow if we appease or accommodate the tyrants of the world, that the world will be safer. He’s wrong.

The right course for America is to strengthen our economy, our values, our families, and our military. We need to rebuild our Navy and go from nine ships a year to 15. We need to modernize our Air Force. We need 100,000 new additional troops in our military. We need to take care of our veterans in the way they deserve.

It is time for us to recognize once again a strong military does not create war. A strong America prevents people from trying to test us around the world.

THE CRAWFISH

Well said, Governor Romney. Now will you please explain to Ron Paul how his plan to cut our defense budget by 73% would be sheer madness?

MODERATOR

Congresswoman Bachmann, today is the official end of the U.S. military operations in Iraq, and there is real concern, as you know, about growing Iranian influence inside Iraq. Also, the deputy prime minister there has expressed concerns about the country possibly slipping into civil war. Are there any circumstances as president where you would send U.S. troops back in to Iraq?

MICHELE BACHMANN

Well, I think clearly the biggest mistake that President Obama has made — and there are many when it comes to foreign policy — has been the decision that he made regarding Iraq. He was essentially given on a silver platter victory in Iraq, and he’s choosing intentionally to lose the peace.

And we all know what’s going to happen. We know that Iran is going to be the hegemony and try to come into Iraq and have the dominant influence. And then Iran will essentially have dominance from the Persian Gulf all the way to the Mediterranean through its ally, Syria.

And with all due respect to Ron Paul, I think I have never heard a more dangerous answer for American security than the one that we just heard from Ron Paul. And I’ll tell you the reason why.
And the reason why I would say that is because we know, without a shadow of a doubt, that Iran will take a nuclear weapon, they will use it to wipe our ally, Israel, off the face of the map, and they’ve stated they will use it against the United States of America.

Look no further than the Iranian constitution, which states unequivocally that their admission — their mission is to extend jihad across the world and eventually to set up a worldwide caliphate. We would be fools and knaves to ignore their purpose and their plan.

RON PAUL

Obviously, I would like to see a lot less nuclear weapons. I — I don’t want Iran to have a nuclear weapon. I would like to reduce them, because there would be less chance of war.
But to declare war on 1.2 billion Muslims and say all Muslims are the same, this is dangerous talk. Yeah, there are some radicals, but they don’t come here to kill us because we’re free and prosperous. Do they go to Switzerland and Sweden? I mean, that’s absurd.

THE CRAWFISH

Uh, Ron? They declared war on us 13 centuries ago. If they are abiding by exactly what the Quran says, they are not being “radicals”. You are acting like the Democrats in America who call anyone who believes in the Constitution of the United States by that same term. The Islamists ARE going into Switzerland and Sweden. They have not made many attacks there, but they are immigrating there and breeding like rabbits, just like they are doing in Britain, France, the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, etc. They will be in position to take control of those nations within a few generations.

RON PAUL

If you think that is the reason, we have no chance of winning this. They come here and explicitly explain it to us. The CIA has explained it to us. It said they come here and they want to do us harm because we’re bombing them.

THE CRAWFISH

No, they are doing it because that is what their religion REQUIRES them to do. Was Italy bombing arabs when Black September struck in Rome? They are Islamists, bent on spreading Islam across the globe. They strike us because we are the strongest force that can counter them. Please return to reality!

RON PAUL

What is the whole world about the drone being in Iran? And we’re begging and pleading, and how are we going to start a war to get this drone back? Why were we flying the drone over Iran? Why do we have to bomb so many countries? Why are we in — have 900 bases, 130 countries, and we’re totally bankrupt? How are you going to rebuild the military when we have no money? How are we going to take care of the people?

So I think — I think this wild goal to have another war in the name of defense is the dangerous thing. The danger is really us overreacting. And we need a strong national defense. And we need to only go to war with a declaration of war, and just carelessly flouting it and starting these wars so often.

THE CRAWFISH

If you don’t understand the concept of forward deployment, then you have no business trying to be Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces. We have those bases around the world so we can get our forces and supplies wherever we need them in a rapid manner.

MICHELE BACHMANN

Can I respond? And the problem would be the greatest under-reaction in world history if we have an avowed madman who uses that nuclear weapon to wipe nations off the face of the Earth. And we have an IAEA report that just recently came out that said, literally, Iran is within just months of being able to obtain that weapon. Nothing could be more dangerous than the comments that we just heard.

RON PAUL

(Screeching and sputtering) There is no U.N. report that said that. It’s totally wrong on what — what you just said.

MICHELE BACHMANN

It’s an IAEA report.

RON PAUL

(Losing all control) That — that is not — that is not true. They — they produced information that led you to believe that, but they have no evidence. There’s no — been no enrichment of these bombs.

MICHELE BACHMANN

And if we agree with that, the United States’ people could be at risk of our national security.

RON PAUL

OK. She took my time, so I’d like — I’d like to finish. If she thinks we live in a dangerous world, she ought to think back when I was drafted in the 1962 with nuclear missiles in Cuba. And Kennedy calls Khrushchev and talks to them, and talks them out of this so we don’t have a nuclear exchange.

And you’re trying to dramatize this, that we have to go and — and treat Iran like we’ve treated Iraq and kill a million Iraqis, and 8,000-some Americans have died since we’ve gone to war. You cannot solve these problems with war. You can solve the problems if we follow our constitution and go to war only when we declare the war, win them and get them over with instead of this endless fighting and this endless attitude that we have enemy all around the world.

THE CRAWFISH

Kennedy blockaded Cuba. You would call that an act of war. Your knowledge of the use of military force in relation to the Constitution is quite faulty. There is a difference between limited action and full war. The Founding Fathers knew that. Jefferson fought the Barbary Pirates without a declaration of war. Look up the Monroe Doctrine. As for many of our actions, it is impossible to declare war against people who are not a real nation state. Al Qaida isn’t a nation state, so we cannot declare war on them. The pirates of Somalia are not a nation state.

In response to this article about Dr. Paul possibly winning in Iowa, I found a response that is better than any I could ever write regarding Dr. Paul:

John R. Vigil, MD Says:
December 19th, 2011 at 1:09 pm I was surprised to see the results of the Fox News Poll showing Ron Paul leading in who the pollsters thought would win the Iowa caucus vote. While, I consider myself a conservative and lean more towards libertarianism, I am nonetheless, quite frankly concerned about the possibility of Ron Paul winning the primaries and–God forbid–possibly becoming president of the United States. My concern comes as a fellow physician who believes that Dr. Paul suffers from a real psychological disorder characterized by megalomania, narcissism, delusional thinking, paranoia, antisocial characteristics, and (abnormal) feelings of persecution. Now, I am not a psychiatrist, but I did minor in psychology as an undergraduate and most physicians have been educated in the behavioral sciences and have been trained to diagnose common psychiatric disorders. Furthermore, it is estimated that the incidence of Narcissistic Personality Disorder occurs 34 times more often in medical doctors than in the general population.
Over the last several weeks, I have been studying Dr. Paul as well as his followers through his television appearances, his letters (and Newsletters), social media, and video clips from You-tube and have noted a very disturbing pattern of Dr. Paul showing all of the psycopathological characteristics of a genuine “cult leader” and his followers showing all of the characteristics of a cult. I have studied cults and their leaders and have outlined the “five basic rules” of being a cult leader. I have also indicated the psychopathology associated with cult leaders as they form their cults:
The number one rule of a cult leader is to polish and cultivate a persona that you–and only you–have been chosen, anointed, or have achieved spiritual, political, or intellectual enlightenment above all others. This shows features of megalomania, delusions of grandeur, as well as narcissism.
1. Dr. Paul has tried to cultivate this persona for over 30 years as the “outsider” and enlightened one within the “Washington establishment”.
2. Dr. Paul has publicly stated that while he believes in term limits, they do not apply to him because (paraphrasing) “there is no one good enough to bring in to replace him”.
3. In 2010, Dr. Paul commented to his wife that he would run for President in 2012 “if things were happening so quickly and fast in our country and we were in a crisis period…and needed somebody…with the knowledge he as, he would do it”.
4. Dr. Paul presents in interviews as haughty and stern and seems to be lecturing rather than engaging in conversation.
The next rule is to appeal to the disconnected, disenchanted, and disaffected in society who are often intellectually, politically, and emotionally immature (i.e., younger people)and convince them that while you have been “chosen” (or more likely self-selected) you are (almost) human just like them and can empathize with their disenchantment and discontent. This shows more tendencies of narcissism and ego-feeding by someone who sees them self as inherently better than others, but with a need to surround one’s self with those less fortunate or less “enlightened”—a “savior complex”, if you will. Often times, the empathy and compassion shown to the acolytes is not genuine (which is a feature of antisocial personality) and is only used for the ulterior motive of personal gain in sex, money, or power (or sense of superiority) or combination thereof.
1. Dr. Paul has always had a relatively small number of fanatical followers who have mostly been drawn from younger people in society. He routinely targets schools, colleges, and other events where younger people tend to be.
2. His “populist” message today resonates with many, besides young people as social, geopolitical, and economic turmoil are perceived to be worsening and more and more people become disenfranchised, disenchanted, and discontent.
3. Dr. Paul’s ploy of not accepting Medicare payment for his Medicare services or a congressional pension—while on the surface seem like noble gestures—are really means to portray himself as “one of us” and morally higher than his colleagues.
The third step is through indoctrination, coercion, repetition, and/or isolation to exercise mind control over your flock of followers by relieving them of their ability to think rationally (usually by not allowing them to test your theories or have access to “the outside”)—but not emotionally—while simultaneously convincing them that your ideas—while plausible (but generally at the far fringes of mainstream thought) are the “light and the truth”. This shows more elements of antisocial ego-building in that the leader is now getting others to surrender their will and rational thought against deep seated norms of the self and/or society while they align their thinking towards that of the leader. Furthermore, this shows the disordered or delusional thinking of the leader who generally has delusional thinking of the world and how it operates and he or she is the only one with the power to fix it.
1. Dr. Paul plays on the emotions of his followers by carefully crafting plausible—and easy to understand– (but highly improbable and at the fringes of mainstream thought) scenarios out of complex geopolitical, political, social and economic issues that are at “top of mind” of our society and that tug at some of our most basic interests (individual freedom, economic freedom, nationalism, sanctity of life, torture, and war) and evoke very basic human responses such as fear, anxiety, anger, disgust, and etc.
2. Dr. Paul’s views on national defense, monetary policy, isolationism, and constitutionalism are considered by most to be outside of the mainstream of rational political, social, and governmental philosophy.
3. Dr. Paul has consistently repeated his messages over 30 years and as noted above, tends to target younger followers who are easier to indoctrinate.
The fourth rule is to proselytize not only your “enlightened philosophy or beliefs, but also to spread forth the word that while you and your followers are “the enlightened or chosen ones”, there will be naysayers and those that will persecute you and the movement. This clearly shows the elements of paranoia and persecution by the non-believers.
1. Dr. Paul and his followers are very defensive when challenged on the issues and their beliefs. Instead of engaging in earnest discourse, they tend to attack and accuse the “non-believer” as persecuting them for their beliefs or of being ignorant and unenlightened in their philosophy.
2. Dr. Paul and his followers display a common paranoia and decry a “conspiracy” of the right, the political elite, and the left against them and their “lofty ideas that will save America”.
3. Dr. Paul has consistently offered the explanation that others are simply “out to get him” by taking “tongue-in-cheek comments out of context” and things that were written in his newsletters (but purportedly not authorized or written by him).
4. Dr. Paul comes off as defensive and angry when challenged in interviews and becomes condescending.
The fifth and last rule is to convince your followers that it is only through blind faith and rigid adherence to your philosophy—no matter how foreign it may be to self or to society—that that blind adherence or “loyalty” is the only path to salvation, redemption, or the reparation of the “perceived” ills of society. This is more antisocial ego-building and the tightening of control over the flock.
1. Dr. Paul and his followers play the same monotonous drum beat about “smaller government”, defense of our borders, monetary reform and fiscal responsibility, “stop the wars”, and national isolationism over and over again like a Gregorian chant and mantra in a blind and stubborn adherence to their fringe philosophy that is the only path to saving America despite practical, rational, philosophical, and real world evidence against and “common sense” opposition to their “zany” ideas, Messianic messages, and Utopian philosophies .
Some authors would add another step which is to construct a “doomsday scenario” for your followers, such as “the end of the world, World War III, or economic collapse as the great incentive to motivate the followers to adhere to and spread your teachings. This, again, would show delusional thinking as well as narcissistic thinking, especially if the leader and his or her followers will be the only ones saved from the impending calamity.
By the way, I too am a Vietnam Era Vet (Army)and also served as an officer in the medical corps for the National Guard during Desert Storm and there is no way in hell I would ever support Dr. Paul to be my Commander-in Chief!

“[A] wise and frugal government … shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.” –Thomas Jefferson, First Inaugural Address, 1801
