Christmas Eve 2011- The Weekend Claw

The Crawfish and his family wish all of my readers a very Merry Christmas or Happy Hanukkah, with this reminder. Nativity scenes and Menorahs are completely welcome on all state and local government lands according to the Constitution. It is just liberal activist judges who don’t understand that state and local governments are NOT Congress and are not making federal laws by putting up such scenes. Those judges have never actually read the “establishment clause” or the 10th Amendment.

For those who are questioning why The Crawfish didn’t wish a happy kwanza, it is because kwanza is a “holiday” that was made up by a black separatist for the expressed purpose of getting American blacks to stop celebrating the white man’s religion and its holiday.

A) The Psychotic Midget with the Funky Hair and High Heels is dead. His youngest son, Kim Jong-Un is the designated successor, but he is only in his mid to late 20s (most guesses are 27) and has only been being groomed for the job for about a year. He isn’t ready for the job, so the current speculation is that his uncle will be the behind-the-scenes leader, making most of the real decisions, for a few years. Kim Jong-Un has already hacked off many of his military commanders, as he was promoted to 4-star general this past year, even though he has never served in the military. Could this be the first break between the Kim family and the military, and could it eventually lead to a coup?

B) In response to the death of the NorK dictator, the now 2nd worst President in American history sent an interesting message according to the Korean Central News Agency: “In the message Jimmy Carter extended condolences to Kim Jong Un and the Korean people over the demise of leader Kim Jong Il. He wished Kim Jong Un every success as he assumes his new responsibility of leadership, looking forward to another visit to [North Korea] in the future.” Yes, he wished EVERY SUCCESS to the new dictator. James Earl Carter is more of an anti-American embarrassment to the United States Naval Academy than John Sidney McCain III.

C) Here’s something interesting. The newest speculation is that Condoleeza Rice is positioning herself as a possible VP nominee no matter who wins the GOP Presidential nomination. That would immediately nullify the Democrats’ race card. If that were to be combined with John Bolton as SecState, the next Administration would be top notch in foreign policy.

D) While we’re considering foreign policy, any Republican (with the exception of Ron Paul) would be smart enough to NOT make this quote: “Look, the Taliban per se is not our enemy. That’s critical.” That came from our esteemed Vice President, Joe Biden. Joe, just like the rest of this Administration, does not believe that any Islamic terrorist group can be an enemy of the United States. In fact, they do not believe that there is such a thing as Islamic terrorism. They just believe in terrorism committed by individual “extremists”, mostly American veterans, Christians, conservatives, and heterosexuals. In fact, it is now the OFFICIAL position of the Obama Administration and the Useless Nations that criticism of Islam and Islamic terrorism should itself be a crime. Is there any doubt which side of this war, which Islam declared on the rest of the world over 1300 years ago, this Administration is on?

E) King Barry and Dingy Harry were screaming about how the GOP was refusing to vote on their “Kick the Can Down the Road, Because This is ALL About Politics” Bill, but ABC News is reporting that the two-month extension in the payroll taxes is impossible to properly implement for businesses. Even with this ammunition in their magazine, John Boehner and the House leadership caved in to the demands of Obama, just like they did on the debt deal and the other deals this year. Boehner is a complete joke of a “leader”. He talks a good game, but when the chips are down he grabs his ankles.

F) Dingy Harry Reid even chastised Boehner and the GOP freshmen with this statement: “I hope this Congress has had a very good learning experience, especially those who are newer to this body. It seems that everything we’ve done this past year has been a knock-down, drag-out fight. There is no reason to do that.” In other words: “Do NOT fight against the Democrats or we will beat you down in the press and make your leadership collapse again. If you stand for the Constitution, you will be vilified as an extremist who hates the American leeches….er, people.” There would be no drag-out fights if the Democrats would simply abide by the Constitution.

G) Bob Dole endorsed Mittens last week. Wait, Bob Dole is alive? Who knew and who cared? It looks like the GOP establishment is grasping at straws to do everything they can to prevent any actual conservatives from getting the nomination.

H) In related news, here’s a big shocker for ya. George H. W. Bush has endorsed Mitt Romney for the GOP nomination. Imagine that. A northeast yankee (the Bush family is from Maine, not Texas) Ivy League liberal blueblood country club elitist establishment Republican endorses a northeast yankee Ivy League liberal blueblood country club elitist establishment Republican. Did you really expect him to endorse a conservative?

I) Eric Holder has been under fire for his role in the Gunrunner/Fast and Furious scandal, his refusal to prosecute Black Panthers for voter intimidation that was caught on video, and for saying that his Injustice Department would not prosecute blacks in civil rights cases. In the face of this criticism, and his history dating back to the Clinton Administration, he has only one defense. His critics, and those of Barack Obama are raaaaacists! That use of the race card is nothing new for Holder and his Massah. It was used every single time something negative was said regarding Barack Obama during the 2008 campaign and the whole of 2009. Since we are entering yet another Presidential campaign (well, Obama’s campaign for 2012 started in December of 2008), we can expect to see it time and again over the next 11 months ( like this one) since the Democrats have no other defense for the actions of Obama and Holder. Representative Allen West has had enough of the Democrat Race Card and is calling them out on it.

J) The Washington Examiner posts a story about the double standard that Ron Paul and his supporters put forth, and of course the Paulbots go nuts in the comments section. Too bad they cannot factually refute a single bit of the story.

K) Check this out. Ron Paul now says that Bradley Manning, an American traitor and homosexual scumbag, should be seen as a “political hero” and a “true patriot” for his actions in giving military secrets to Wikileaks. Yes, giving out military secrets during a time of war is heroic and patriotic, according to the most anti-American military candidate in the history of the Republican Party.

L) Ron Paul has been busy disavowing much of the content of his old newsletters, but according to his spokesperson anything written regarding those newsletters that includes his signature is endorsed by Paul. So when he sent out solicitation letters with his signature, and those note coming race wars, federal cover-ups of homosexuality, and claims that the reason for changing the colors of our currency was so the government could track people with the new money, that means those are his official positions. Gawd, is that man ever screwed up. By the way, The Crawfish doesn’t believe any of his denials of the content of his newsletters. All of that vile anti-semetic and racist content was approved by him before publication.

M) Y’all remember Cynthia McKinney, right? She is the anti-American former Congresscritter from Jawja who was so far to the left that Barack Obama looks conservative in comparison. She supported Hamas, even helping Hamas attempt to break through Israeli blockades to give aid to Hamas in Gaza while still serving in Congress. She was the Presidential candidate for the Green Party a few years ago, supporting lifelong welfare at a “living wage” for anybody who was too lazy to get a job, even if they were completely mentally and physically able to work. Of course, McKinney’s definition of mental competency is highly questionable. She was eventually replaced in Congress by a guy who is such an idiot as to believe that if the US stations more Marines on Guam it might cause the island to tip over and sink. So where am I going with this? RON PAUL ENDORSED MCKINNEY back in 2008!

N) The Crawfish has found a good place for Congress to show that they are serious about spending reduction. Although it would be mostly paid for by the slaves…er, PEOPLE of California, the California high speed rail project has already tripled in cost before a single shovel has hit the dirt. In 2008, the state’s government promised that the project would cost $33 billion. The projection is already up to $99 billion, and we all know that once the unions get involved the cost will at least double again and the timetable will be extended by 50%. Of course, the Obama Administration wants the project to proceed.

O) That’s just the tip of the iceberg, as we all know. Senator Coburn of Oklahoma has released his “Wastebook 2011” with a ton of ways the government has thrown our hard-earned tax dollars into the rubbish bin. Will somebody explain why we are spending millions to help mango production in Pakistan?

P) Here’s more spending that needs to be chopped. If this story does not piss you off, you must be an Obama supporter. Send the damned bill for this to the First Grifter!

Q) Normally I am supportive of soccer referees, since I used to be one. In this story, however, the referee completely blew it. The goalkeeper should have kicked that drunken attacker into unconsciousness.

R) Here is your Laughable Statement of the Year Award winner for 2011: “I would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president — with the possible exceptions of Johnson, F.D.R., and Lincoln — just in terms of what we’ve gotten done in modern history.” Yes, Barack Obama thinks he is the 4th greatest President in history, and ranks the 3rd worst (LBJ) as one of the 3 ahead of him. Sorry Your Majesty, but the three WORST Presidents in our nation’s history are YOU, James Earl Carter, and Lyndon Baines Johnson.

“[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

12-16-2011 The Weekend Claw

It’s beginning to look a lot like …well, I was gonna say Christmas, but primary season seems to have taken over.

A) In the first twenty minutes of the GOP debate on Thursday, Ron Paul said that 50% of all spending cuts need to come from national defense. Consider that he said he would cut $1 TRILLION from the budget in his first year. Then consider that the entire proposed defense budget for 2012 (passed this week) is $682 billion, which means he would slash the defense budget by OVER 73%. Have I mentioned lately that he is a F***ING IDIOT? Later, he said that there is absolutely no proof that Iran is trying to make a nuclear weapon and that Iran really hasn’t pledged to exterminate Israel. He will continue to say that there’s no proof on either issue until there is a mushroom cloud over Tel Aviv. As good as he is on domestic issues, his national defense and foreign policy lunacy makes him completely untenable as a serious candidate to all but his rabid, brainwashed followers.

B) The GOP debate this week was the first one that I watched in its entirety. Mittens and Newt came across much better than I expected under the circumstances, even though Newt once again said that illegals who have broken our laws for 25+ years should get a free pass. While I don’t really care for either and have major disagreements with them, they are both much more worthy of being President than anybody who has a jackass as their symbol. Rick Perry did quite well, except for his stooooopid Tim Tebow comments. Rick Santorum was solid, but he really has no weight to his campaign or message. Michelle Bachmann looked almost plastic, but her performance gets a good grade. She showed that she is not afraid to go toe-to-toe with anybody, and she did a great job of getting Ron Paul to self-immolate. Governor Huntsman made a good case for his conservatism and experience, but the fact that he willingly went to work for the Obama Administration makes him a non-starter in this race.

C) True to his roots as a history professor and realist, Newt Gingrich has hacked off Islamic terrorists and their enablers throughout the Middle East, Europe, and the Democratic Party (oh…and in the Republican “establishment”). Newt has pointed out that the so-called palestinians are in fact a made-up people. They are merely arabs who formerly lived under the Ottoman Empire. He also pointed out how the Islamic terrorists constantly bombard Israel with missiles and other terrorist attacks while demanding that Israel pursue peace by giving away their whole nation. The so-called palestinians preach nothing but hatred and the murder of Jews in their schools (paid for by US aid dollars) and say that Israel has no right to exist, but their supporters in CAIR and the Democratic Party keep preaching about how they want nothing but peaceful co-existence. Combine that with his insistence that he would make John Bolton SecState and I’m starting to like (not endorsing…just liking more than before) Newt more and more, despite his numerous flaws. Now if we could only get him to admit that any kind of amnesty for illegals is a bad idea.

D) She’s at it again. You’ve gotta give props to Red Nanny P-Lousy for her persistence, even if it is based completely on ignorance and liberal politics. “The unemployment insurance extension is not only good for individuals. It has a macroeconomic impact. As macroeconomic advisers have stated, it would make a difference of 600,000 jobs to our economy.” Yes, she is still claiming that handing out checks for people NOT working means we “save or create” 600,000 jobs. That’s only true if we’re employing government workers to hand out checks individually to each and every unemployed person out there, with those workers having to travel to each home singly, hand out a single check, then return to the office to get the next check.

E) SCOTUS Justice Elena Kagan has recused herself from the case involving the Arizona immigration laws. This is a promising sign for the coming term, as she is under pressure to do the same thing on the Obamacare case since she was Solicitor General for the Administration when that bill was being shoved through Congress. In fact, the Department of Justice issued a memo, sent to Kagan, informing her that she did indeed substantially participate in a case that is directly tied to the Obamacare law. This means that not only does she need to recuse herself, but that she committed perjury in her confirmation hearings and should be impeached.

F) The Chairman of the Democratic Party of Indiana is quitting. He’s saying it is because seven years in that job is enough, but the real reason is that it has become known that the signatures required to get Barack Obama on the 2008 ballots in that state were fraudulent, and an investigation is now underway.

G) Barack Obama has transitioned from liar to completely delusional. Now he is claiming that Republicans around the country support his ideas. That’s like saying the Cuban community of southern Florida supports the ideas of Fidel Castro. Then again, everything he said in his 60 Minutes interview was complete Bravo Sierra, but See BS didn’t challenge him at all.

H) Barack Obama is threatening to veto a bill that would create over 20,000 union jobs directly, and over 500,000 jobs indirectly. Why? The only reason is because he wants American energy prices to go higher instead of getting lower. Will the unions raise a stink over this, or will they roll over and once again pledge their undying support for him? Of course, Obama says the Republicans are the ones playing politics here.

I) FINALLY! The Securities and Exchange Commission has filed fraud charges on eight former Freddie and Fannie execs. So far only two of them have been identified, so we don’t know if the two top fraudsters, Jamie Gorelick and Franklin Raines, are among the indicted. Since Obama and Holder are still in power it is doubtful that those two are getting charged, and if they are charged the Administration will make sure the trial gets delayed until 2013, and will pardon all involved after the election.

J) Ann Coulter has now lost all credibility. On Sean Hannity’s television show, she actually said that Mitt Romney is the most conservative of the GOP hopefuls. Right, and the Indianapolis Colts are a really good team this season.

K) Babs Boxer is an idiot. I know, I know, y’all already knew that, but take this into account. She railed this week on the Senate floor about Republicans wanting to allow coal-fired power plants to keep operating. She said this means the GOP wants to kill 8100 people. She unhesitatingly supports abortion on demand, which kills a LOT more than 8100 per year. She even mentions mercury in this screech, but doesn’t she support forcing Americans to use CFL light bulbs? They contain mercury, which poisons the air in a house if they break.

L) I don’t normally include stories like this in my columns, but I like this one. Longtime reader of The Claw, Jesse “The Mind”, sends us this primer on derivatives:

Heidi is the proprietor of a bar in …

She realizes that virtually all of her customers are unemployed alcoholics and, as such, can no longer afford to patronize her bar.

To solve this problem, she comes up with a new marketing plan that allows her customers to drink now, but pay later.

Heidi keeps track of the drinks consumed on a ledger (thereby granting the customers loans).

Word gets around about Heidi’s “drink now, pay later” marketing strategy and, as a result, increasing numbers of customers flood into Heidi’s bar. Soon she has the largest sales volume for any bar in .

By providing her customers freedom from immediate payment demands, Heidi gets no resistance when, at regular intervals, she substantially increases her prices for wine and beer, the most consumed beverages.

Consequently, Heidi’s gross sales volume increases massively.

A young and dynamic vice-president at the local bank recognizes that these customer debts constitute valuable future assets and increases Heidi’s borrowing limit.

He sees no reason for any undue concern because he has the debts of the unemployed alcoholics as collateral!

At the bank’s corporate headquarters, expert traders figure a way to make huge commissions, and transform these customer loans into DRINKBONDS.

These “securities” then are bundled and traded on international securities markets.

Naive investors don’t really understand that the securities being sold to them as “AAA Secured Bonds” really are debts of unemployed alcoholics. Nevertheless, the bond prices continuously climb – and the securities soon become the hottest-selling items for some of the nation’s leading brokerage houses.

One day, even though the bond prices still are climbing, a risk manager at the original local bank decides that the time has come to demand payment on the debts incurred by the drinkers at Heidi’s bar. He so informs Heidi.

Heidi then demands payment from her alcoholic patrons. But, being unemployed alcoholics — they cannot pay back their drinking debts.

Since Heidi cannot fulfill her loan obligations she is forced into bankruptcy. The bar closes and Heidi’s 11 employees lose their jobs.

Overnight, DRINKBOND prices drop by 90%.

The collapsed bond asset value destroys the bank’s liquidity and prevents it from issuing new loans, thus freezing credit and economic activity in the community.

The suppliers of Heidi’s bar had granted her generous payment extensions and had invested their firms’ pension funds in the BOND securities.

They find they are now faced with having to write off her bad debt and with losing over 90% of the presumed value of the bonds.

Her wine supplier also claims bankruptcy, closing the doors on a family business that had endured for three generations, her beer supplier is taken over by a competitor, who immediately closes the local plant and lays off 150 workers.

Fortunately though, the bank, the brokerage houses and their respective executives are saved and bailed out by a multibillion dollar no-strings attached cash infusion from the government.

The funds required for this bailout are obtained by new taxes levied on employed, middle-class, nondrinkers who have never been in Heidi’s bar.

Now do you understand?

12-10-2011 The Weekend Claw

Congrats to Robert Griffin III, the son of a dual-military family. You have done your parents and Baylor University proud in winning the 2011 Heisman Memorial Trophy.

A) THIS PISSES ME OFF!!!!! Wesley Cook (aka Mumia Abu-Jamal) has beaten the justice system. Thirty years ago this week, Cook murdered Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner. He was properly convicted and properly sentenced to death based on the physical evidence and eyewitnesses. Hundreds of appeals later (all paid for by international leftists, black racist organizations, Democrats, radical student organizations, moron musicians, and Hollyweird idiots), a left wing extremist federal judge said that the jury instructions for the sentencing phase of his trial were “potentially misleading” and threw out the sentence. The Supreme Court refused to hear any appeal of that action. Now, thirty years after her new husband’s death, Maureen Faulkner and the new District Attorney have given up the fight. The black power activist and muslim will now get an automatic sentence of life in prison. He should have been executed 25 years ago.

B) Seventy years after the attack on Pearl Harbor, the private school attended by the little Obamas celebrated the anniversary by serving Japanese food for lunch. That’s kinda like serving Halal foods on 9-11 anniversaries or tamales on March 6th (anniversary of the fall of the Alamo). What kind of American military hating idiot made THAT decision? Could this have been yet another school menu suggestion by Moochelle?

C) Barack Hussein Obama tried to compare himself with Teddy Roosevelt this week, with a major speech about “fairness”. His words were manna from Heaven for the brainwashed. He called on America to be all about equality of results, instead of what our nation is really about, equality of opportunity. Obama even said that limited government that preserves free markets “has never worked”, so we need an activist government. He didn’t specifically say it, but his point was that only socialism will work. In this, he conveniently ignores the FACT that every socialist system in history has been a dismal failure and/or has turned into a dictatorship. Representative Allen West rebutted Obama’s nonsense with his own message of what America is all about.

D) The Obama family’s contempt for the US taxpayer continues. His Majesty is now staying in DC for a few extra days in order to campaign against the Republicans, saying that he wants to continue the payroll tax cuts (which will cause us all to have fewer Social Security benefits later in life since they are based on contribution amounts), but threatening to veto them if the GOP includes language that approves the Keystone Pipeline (which oddly enough means Obama opposes 20,000 union jobs…but the unions still support him). Since he is still in DC, that means that once again Moochelle and her brood are taking a separate flight to Hawaii, with all of the additional support forces and security details this involves. The entertainment of the First Grifters will cost the American taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars, but we must spare no expense to keep Moochelle Antoinette happy. Let the taxpayers eat arugula!

E) Hillary! went to the UN in Geneva to proclaim the doctrine of the Democrats. According to her, and therefore according to Barack Obama, religious and cultural values around the world are standing in the way of rights for queers and trannys. Yes, it is more of the leftist war against religion, but this time it comes with a twist as they are also attacking Islam. The only religion acceptable to the American left is the religion of socialism. For the most part, the GOP is scared to counter this war against religion, but to his credit Rick Perry put out a new television ad saying that he would “end Obama’s war on religion.”

F) So why is this Administration so extremely supportive of the radical queers? Our good friend GunnyG has found some reports that may just explain it.

G) “I try not to pat myself too much on the back, but this administration has done more in terms of the security of the state of Israel than any previous administration. And that is not just our opinion. That is the opinion of the Israeli government.” That quote came this past week from one Barack Hussein Obama at one of his many campaign fundraisers. You really need to pay attention to the words before you throw the BS flag on him, as he really HAS done more for Israel’s security than any previous President, just not in a POSITIVE manner! He has done more to undermine Israel than even James Earl Carter has done both in his presidency and in the years since. As for not patting himself on his back too much, again one must look closely at the words he said. His definition of “too much” is obviously “48 hours per day”.

H) This organization ALWAYS has outstanding commercials. In this one, they are not advertising for themselves, but for a fantastic program that they have been running for years. If you are dry-eyed at the end, you are heartless.

I) In the past decade, American taxpayers have spent a quarter of a billion dollars for penispumps for older guys who have a hard time getting hard and large enough to satisfy their lovers. That doesn’t include the cost of Viagra and other devices or drugs. Why is that an acceptable use of taxpayer money? The reports that 80% of those expenditures were for Teddythedrunk, $lick Willie, Bawney Fwank, and Anthony the Weiner are not considered credible.

J) “Plus ca change, plus c’est la meme chose.” That old saying simply means “The more things change, the more they stay the same.” Here is proof, from a newspaper clipping that dates back to November of 1949. Hat tip goes to INTHENOW for finding this one.

K) The Affirmative Action Attorney General’s Injustice Department is now involved in yet another scandal. I know, y’all are shocked. This time, they are giving out money that is supposed to be used to fight juvenile delinquency, and they’re handing it to ACORN.

L) When Susan Collins is agreeing with me, you know the White House really screwed up. For those of you who don’t pay attention, Collins may claim to be a Republican, but she’s about as conservative as the Kennedy family. Anyway, Collins is one of a bunch of lawmakers who are upset with the Obama Administration because they are referring to the Fort Hood Massacre as “workplace violence” instead of Islamic terrorism. By this definition, other incidents of “workplace violence” would include 9-11 and Pearl Harbor.

M) This proclamation makes me seriously consider making Newt my top choice.

N) The liberal claim of “voter suppression” regarding requirements to show identification to vote has reached new heights. The NAACP is taking their complaint to the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva. Really? Not being able to vote fraudulently is an international human rights violation?

O) The Crawfish family enjoys the Discovery Channel show “Mythbusters”, but for some strange reason we believe one of the episodes for the upcoming season will have to be held back for a while…like until all court actions are completed.

P) Last week I ranted about the Senate passing a bill (with a 93-7 vote) that changed the Uniform Code of Military Justice to now allow sodomy and bestiality. Now we have proof that some Senators are being derelict in their duty, as John McLame admits that he didn’t know about that part of the bill and Lindsey Grahamnesty also admits he didn’t know about it. Meanwhile, Minister of Propaganda Carney and the mainstream media laughed about his refusal to answer questions about the provision. To top it off, PETA is hacked off about the provision and the White House’s behavior.

Q) Our friend Gunny G has an excellent column regarding the signature programs enacted by liberals over the past eighty years. You will note that each and every one is a massive failure.

12-3-2011 The Weekend Claw

This week, Barack Obama said “I’m going to need another term to finish the job.” Looking over the first term, we can only assume “the job” is the destruction of the United States.

A) Debbie the Ditz is back, and she has bleated “They know they can’t win elections on the merits, so they’re trying to rig elections” in response to continuing efforts by Republicans to pass laws requiring that voters be able to show proper identification in order to vote. Yes, the GOP wants to rig elections by preventing people from voting multiple times, preventing people who are not eligible voters from voting, and preventing the dead from voting.

B) If the liberals want to see how elections are rigged, they really need to look either into their own sordid past, or they can look at what is happening in Russia right now. Vlad the Emperor never really went away, and his ultimate goal is to bring about a new semi-Soviet empire. Now he has levied charges against the only internationally-respected election watchdog group that operates in Russia just ahead of the elections. That effectively takes them out of the game. Vlad and his puppet-President are also “spreading the wealth” in order to gain some more votes, just like the Democrats always do here. In a more ominous bit of news, it is also being reported that the Sovi, …er, Russian Army is to be awakened on election day with pleasant music and to be fed a “celebratory breakfast”. This sounds like the tradition of many armed forces on the morning of an expected battle.

C) The Democrats are touting a sharp drop in the unemployment rate this week, but they are missing the key to that drop. Look down in the article and you will find that more Americans gave up looking for jobs this week than new jobs were created by an almost 3:1 ratio. That means things got WORSE, not better.

D) For many years, Barack Obama has been heavily involved with Antoin Rezko, most notably regarding some very shady property deals in Chicago. Now that Rezko has been found guilty of corruption and sentenced to 10 ½ years in prison, the media is happy to note Rezko’s involvement with former Governor Blago, but they fail to mention his associations with The Won. I wonder why…

E) This is what we call a Core Obama Voter. Dumb-bass black chick has FIFTEEN kids from at least three sperm donors, and she expects the rest of the country to pay all of her expenses. She should have kept her knees together.

F) Newt Gingrich is going to catch a lot of flak from the liberal media for these comments regarding inner city youth in our nation, but he is 100% correct. This has been the plan of the Democratic Party ever since LBJ’s “Great Society” programs were first proposed. This is the result of the liberal plantations. Those people will vote for the party that promises them money for nothing.

G) How serious is the Fast and Furious/Gunrunner/Gunwalker/Castaway scandal becoming? Here’s a hint for ya: the Obama Administration has now ordered that the court records dealing with the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry be sealed. Agent Terry was murdered by illegal aliens on our side of the border who were armed with weapons that the Obama Administration had funneled to the drug cartels on the other side of the border with the intent of using whatever violence occurred as an excuse to further erode the 2nd Amendment. The Obamites know that where there is a ton of smoke, there is a fire. Didn’t Obama promise the most transparent Administration in history? It sounds like the most criminal Administration in history to me.

H) The Obama Administration tradition of the Friday Evening Document Dump is alive and well. This tactic is continually used to release bad news when they believe it will gather the least media and public notice. This week’s dump is 1364 pages detailing how they have LIED TO CONGRESS regarding the Fast and Furious scandal. Lying to Congress and lying under oath are major felonies, so will the GOP have the gonads to press charges and send Obamites to prison? Yeah, right, only in our dreams.

I) It gets worse. The supervisors of the illegal operation have all received promotions, while the whistleblowers have all been screwed over. Retaliation against whistleblowers is a violation of federal law, and in the original Fast and Furious hearings, Senator Grassley made sure to point that out. So why has the retaliation been allowed to occur? Dear Congressional Republicans, grow some balls!

J) Here we go again with a federal court stepping WAY outside of its authority. According to the Constitution, Congressional districts are drawn up by state legislatures every decade, following the Census. Congress may alter the way they states draw up their maps, but this alteration process must be done equally among all states, not just those from the Old South. Courts have no authority to draw up the maps. The Texas legislature drew up new Congressional maps, including four new districts based upon the 2010 Census, and these maps reflected the GOP majority in the state. Racist groups filed suit in federal court, stating that the new district maps should be drawn up based upon skin color according to the Voting Rights Act. A federal court agreed with the racists, drew up its own version of a 36-district Texas, and ordered it to be implemented. The Texas Attorney General, Greg Abbott, has filed an emergency stay application with the Supreme Court to block that unConstitutional action.

K) Nancy Pelosi calls herself a “devout Catholic”, but her actions and words prove her to be as anti-Catholic as the Kennedy family. She is unabashedly pro-abortion. This week, she went so far as to lash out at Roman Catholic bishops who oppose provisions in Obamacare that force people to purchase healthcare plans that pay for abortion, sterilization, and other contraception methods even if such things are counter to their religions. Since they oppose such anti-Christian regulations, she says that they are nothing more than “lobbyists”.

L) Here’s some more proof that the entitlement mentality is way out of control. The Filthadelphia School District got rid of their underperforming Superintendant and gave her a buyout of over $900,000.00. She turned around and filed for unemployment benefits! First of all, if she wasn’t doing her job properly, why did those idiots give her that much of a buyout? Well, I mean besides her skin color. Secondly, why does she deserve MORE taxpayer money if she has that much in the bank?

M) Our nation is broke. We have over $15 TRILLION in debt, thanks to liberal policies of the past 80 years. The full folly of liberal policies is on display in Europe, as the Euro is about to collapse. In the face of this news, what Sir Golfsalot of the Intrepid Sand Wedge do? He and Fed Chairman Bernanke are going to join with other idiots and bail out Europe. What mythical money is going to be used for this? Didn’t we already bail them out with with the Marshall Plan and trillions spent on NATO? On top of that, isn’t Europe our COMPETITION in manufacturing and trade? The sad thing here is that even Ron Paul would oppose this and he doesn’t have a clue on foreign policy.

N) Bawney Fwank is FINALLY leaving Congress. The Democrats and their media minions are praising Fwank as much as possible, saying that he helped save America from economic collapse. The FACT that he is one of the people responsible for the crash of Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac (which was the lynchpin of the 2008 economic downturn) and the economically devastating Dodd-Frank law seems to have been lost on these enemies of the Constitution.

O) The Crawfish has attended Gathering of Eagles rallies and Tea Party rallies. Those groups ALWAYS clean up the area and leave it in as good or better shape than they found it in. Contrast that to the “occupy” brats in El Lay, where they left behind over 30 tons of refuse for the city to dispose of.

P) The “occupy” idiots should really try to read this column. It may be a bit difficult for them to comprehend, but…

Q) This is exactly why Barack Obama supported the protesters against Hosni Mubarak. He is in favor of an Islamist government in Egypt.

R) Byron Thomas is a college student in South Carolina. He has taken a controversial position, and he seems to understand history better than most Americans.

S) How in the world did the GOP let this get through the Senate? With NINETY THREE VOTES, a Defense appropriations bill has passed the Senate, but it has one provision that should have caused a filibuster. The provision removes the offenses of sodomy and bestiality from the Uniform Code of Military Justice, making queer sex and sex with animals perfectly okay for our Armed Forces. The Democrats are hell bent on destroying our professional forces.

T) After playing some disgustingly insulting “music” (a “song” called “Lyin’ A___ B____”) to introduce Michelle Bachmann on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon”, the house band’s leader is now claiming that he’s getting a lot of….wait for it….RACIST e-mail and tweets from “Tea Party extremists”. Did the people who rightly flooded his Twitter account with insults ID themselves as Tea Party members? He’s lucky that he didn’t get bricks through his home and car windows.

2011 Post Thanksgiving Claw

Okay, Thanksgiving is over, the weather is turning cruddy, and I have a lot of work to do around Casa Crustacean. That can mean only one thing…time to dig around the attic and break out the Christmas lights.

A) This warning comes too late for your Thanksgiving meal, but take note before your Christmas meal shopping and for all future shopping. If you are a Christian or a Jew, do NOT buy Butterball brand turkey products. The company has admitted that all of their turkeys are slaughtered according to Islamic law including a blessing in the name of Allah. Now that this has become public knowledge, I will never buy any of their products again.

B) Moochelle Obama was at the final Sprint Cup race of the season. When she was introduced to give the command to start engines, NASCAR Nation booed her loudly, as all good patriotic Americans should. Later, she and Jill Biden appeared on the ESPN telecast of the race regarding their involvement in “Joining Forces”, which NASCAR is involved in. She said that the two of them were there to show their love and respect for the troops. Huh? They DESPISE our troops and our military, which is why they and their husbands are actively trying to destroy our forces! Lying beotch!

C) As planned all along by the Democrats, the “super committee” failed to reach a compromise, because the Democrats would not accept any deal that wasn’t made up completely by tax increases and defense cuts. Now come the draconian cuts in defense, along with some cuts in programs for America’s seniors. Notice that there are no cuts in programs for America’s leeches, since they are core Democrat voters. Sultan Bu’raq bin al Obama immediately said that he would veto any attempt to undo the massive cuts to our national defense, proving yet again what side he is on.

D) When I saw this play from the NFL on Sunday, I laughed my butt off. The only disappointment was that the idiot didn’t get a severe neck sprain that would sideline him for a few weeks. Why do those morons think they look good with 18 inches of nasty dreadlocks protruding from their helmets? GET A HAIRCUT!!!

E) The freeloaders have now started issuing demands again. They want FREE public universities, no-interest loans, and forgiveness of ALL student loans. They are pledging to never repay their own student loans. These “people” have absolutely no concept of the real world. The world owes them everything, and they should never have to work for a living.

F) The “occupy” movement can be summed up in two signs. Really, it can! The sad thing is that the holder of the second sign doesn’t realize how true it is. The actions of the extreme lefties are sparking a revolution by those who believe in the Constitution and fiscal sanity.

G) Here’s another update from the Department of Out of Control Federal Government.

H) Where does the Constitution allow the federal government to tell any private company how much it may charge consumers for its services? Oh, that’s right…Obama doesn’t believe in that “flawed” document, so he doesn’t let it get in his way.

I) Newt Gingrich gave yet another smack down to the “occupy” crowd. He told them, “Go get a job right after you take a bath!” Too bad he stepped in it so bad last week with his amnesty idea.

J) NBC once again shows what a completely classless it is. Then again, since it is owned by GE and Jeffrey Immelt, what do you expect?

K) Carlsberg Brewery deserves kudos for this social experiment. Stop the video halfway through and ask yourself what you would do.

L) When a DEMOCRAT Senator is calling for an investigation into the crony-capitalism deals of Barack Obama, you know there is some seriously shady business going on.

11-20-2011 The Weekend Claw

As we enter Thanksgiving week, what do we have to be thankful for? Our economy is purposely being destroyed and our national defense is being undermined by the Administration and their cohorts in Congress. Our heritage, traditions, religions, and our Constitution are constantly being attacked by the far left and their allies in the media and the ACLU. Our government is growing at an exponential rate, completely beyond all semblance of the limited government described by the Constitution. There is scandal after scandal emanating from the White House. The “occupy” protests are getting favorable press and treatment from authorities despite their messages of anti-Americanism, anti-Semitism, freeloading, and anarchy. On top of that, in an election cycle that should be a slam dunk against these socialists, communists, and anarchists; we have a severe lack of strong candidates running for the GOP nomination. Oh, and the jobs market still sucks, as yours truly can attest.

A) Back when Barry Almighty was campaigning, The Crawfish found his main campaign document on his Pennsylvania campaign website. “The Blueprint for Change” was written in 16 chapters, so I wrote a 16-part series dissecting it. That was almost four years ago. Did my criticisms prove correct?

B) On Sunday, Ron Paul reminded all of us that he is one of the biggest idiots in DC when it comes to foreign policy. First of all, he said that American policies were to blame for 9/11, instead of putting the blame where it belongs…on the Quran. Then he said that he would pull all American troops from overseas bases, saying that submarines and long-range missiles are enough of a deterrent. Sorry, moron, but submarines aren’t going to stop the Psychotic Midget with the Funky Hair and High Heels from crossing the DMZ. He finished it off by saying that we should have no sanctions or any other actions against Iran, since there is no proof that they have or are working toward a nuclear weapon.

C) I’m not going to say that the Obama Administration has suborned perjury, but I will point out that other people are now testifying to that point. I know…you’re shocked.

D) Dingy Harry Reid has shown his true anti-American colors…again. He is now on record as saying he will oppose any and all efforts to spare national defense from the draconian cuts that will be triggered by his purposely built-to-fail “super committee”. The Democrats WANT to gut the armed forces as much as possible, and if the “super committee” fails, they can blame it on the GOP no matter what the truth is.

E) One of the Democrats on the “super committee” even came out and said that a lack of a deal wouldn’t be a failure. Rep. Xavier Becerra said that the automatic cuts in defense would be “progress”.

F) There is a plan in writing before Congress to cut the federal budget deficit by $9.7 trillion over the next decade, and it does so without raising taxes. There was even a hearing on this plan, but the Democrats made sure that it would be closed to the public and all microphones were removed from the hearing room. As per usual, the Democrats will pooh-pooh any plan that reduces spending as “not serious” and continue to say that the Republicans are leading a “do-nothing” Congress.

G) European Union has now officially jumped the shark. When the EU bans bottled water companies from saying that their products can prevent dehydration, you know they’re nothing but idiots.

H) Where will the trail of crony capitalism end? As if the Solyndra scandal wasn’t enough, now we are finding out that another “green energy” company used political connections to get a huge taxpayer-funded bailout to the tune of $1.4 BILLION. Of course, the biggest investor in the company, BrightSource, is by no means a conservative. He is none other than Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

I) There’s another crony capitalism deal that has been discovered by the non-mainstream media (which refuses to acknowledge ANY scandal involving Barack Hussein Obama, MMM, MMM, MMM!). The Administration has made a no-bid, no-competition deal, the kind that they excoriated the W Administration for doing in war zones, worth over $433 million for a drug that medical experts say is completely unnecessary. The drug is to treat smallpox, which has been almost completely wiped out on this planet and for which danged-near every single person in the United States has been inoculated. Did I mention that the head of the company is big-time Democrat donor Ronald Perelman, and that he appointed former SEIU purple shirt thug President (and extremely close Friend of Barry) Andy Stern to the company’s Board of Directors to lobby for the contract (and amazingly got another $3 BILLION contract for the company almost immediately)? Oh, and one of the Administration’s top biodefense bureaucrats went after a Department of Health and Human Services person who dared to question the profit projections of the company? This stinks on ice almost as much as the Kennedy deal.

J) Oh, and by the way, the original crony capitalism deal of this bunch is getting worse by the day. Y’all remember when Barack Obama declared that federal bankruptcy laws don’t mean anything if they get in the way of his friendship with the unions? You know, when he gave the actual creditors of General Motors the shaft by giving the company to the UAW and bailing them out for over $85 BILLION? Remember how he promised that the taxpayers would end out profiting from this deal in the end? Well times they are a-changin’, ‘cause the Treasury just announced that the taxpayer LOSSES in that deal have gone up from $14.33 BILLION to $23.6 BILLION. The American taxpayers need to sue the UAW for that money, and need to put every single person involved in that deal in prison for at least 20 years.

K) Only in this Administration… Joe Biden attended a meeting of the Government Accountability and Transparency Board. The meeting was closed to the press and public. They prefer to be opaque.

L) Our good friend Gunny G found a photo from the “occupy” protests that is simply pure gold. Where do they find these idiots?

M) Barry’s illegal alien uncle, who is still holding a job at a liquor store that should be held by an AMERICAN citizen, is trying to get his DUI case thrown out. He’s claiming that his Constitutional rights were violated by the police when they had the audacity to pull him over for driving erratically and nearly crashing into a police car. Apparently Uncle Onyango believes that he has Constitutional rights in this country even though he was ordered to leave the country almost 20 years ago. Listen up, non-dryback, the only rights you have in the USA are the right to get your sorry butt on a plane back to Kenya and to take whatever possessions you have with you. Other than that, you have NO rights.

N) Here is an explanation of why Uncle Onyango is still in the US. The Obama Administration now has a formal policy that they will only deport illegals who are convicted criminals. If that isn’t an incentive for more illegal immigration, I don’t know what is. As long as you don’t commit crimes, other than being here illegally, you can stay as long as you want!

O) Here’s a refresher for those of you who haven’t read my rants about how all of Islam is our enemy. Their not-so-holy book commands that all non-muslims are the enemy of Allah and his faithful.

11-5-2011 The Weekend Claw

This has been quite the busy week around Casa Crustacean, so y’all are just gonna have to deal with a short-than-usual column.

A) It is amazing how the leftists in America and their supposed “feminist” allies are attacking Herman Cain over false allegations of sexual harassment. These same people repeatedly defended Teddythedrunk (and completely covered up for his older brother), Bill Clinton, Silky Pony Edwards, Anthony Weiner, et al because the liberal positions of the offenders made them more important than their female victims. For liberals, sexual harassment is a resume enhancer!

B) Here is one situation in which I would welcome immediate US military involvement in Libya. Those munitions must be secured immediately and properly destroyed.

C) A protester at the Occupy Oakland protest was hospitalized with a head injury. As soon as it became known that he is a former Marine, lots of Marines rallied online to his support and against the Oakland PD, who they accuse of firing a projectile that hit him. Those Marines were sadly fooled. The protester is NOT one of their brothers. He is the founder of an anti-Marine website and an anti-Semite. He gets no sympathy from me.

D) Last week we brought y’all the news that ACORN was deeply involved in the “occupy” protests. Now the artists formerly known as ACORN have been shredding documents, firing staff, and telling folks to blame ex-employees in order to cover up their involvement. Sorry, but there ain’t enough litter in the box to cover up that cat turd now, and the shredding of documents might just be a bit illegal.

E) Michelle (***sigh***) Malkin brings us some more of the images from “occupy” protests that the Democrats and their buddies in the media don’t want you to see.

F) The union leaders are realizing that their only hope is to ally themselves with the radical protesters of the “occupy” groups, as the rest of America has pretty much had it with their idiocy. Check out this interview with the President of the United Steelworkers International union (why do American unions put the word “international” in their names when they are all about union power in America?) as he calls for “militancy” and other actions that will do absolutely nothing for the thugs except give them an outlet while they are out of work.

G) Speaking of union idiots and being out of work, the union The Crawfish is currently a member of (until my layoff next Friday) has their contract with Lockheed up for renewal this coming spring. They are already talking about the need to strike until they can get a much better deal than the contract they are under now. Since the F-35 program is under severe pressure from the government, this is the time to go big, and the company will have to cave in to the union, or so union logic says. The reality is that Lockheed is laying off lots of people because the government is demanding that the price of the plane be cut down, and since the government has already announced that they will be purchasing fewer jets over the next two years than originally planned there will be even more layoffs coming. Sounds like the perfect time to strike and make big demands, doesn’t it?

H) Nancy Pelosi believes that the federal government should shut down a manufacturing plant if the workers do not want to be unionized. Really? Where does the federal government get ANY say in the contractual dealings between employers and employees?

I) It is rather interesting that this story comes from an Israeli news source instead of an American one. The Obama Administration is pulling all law enforcement training manuals, including those dealing with terrorism, in order to purge them of all non-positive references to Islam, after the Injustice Department received pressure from Hamas operatives in the United States. The operatives mentioned in the story do not include the top Hamas operative in the country because the journalist didn’t want to offend Barack Hussein Obama.

J) I really don’t know how a football games ends up with the score in this story, especially a high school game in which the quarters are only 12 minutes long. Disclosure statement: The Crawfish played against Garland Christian in the early 80’s.

K) Our good friend Gunny G reminds us of the ten principles of conservatism, and what they mean as we gear up for the elections next year.

L) Another prominent, rich, white Democrat who has made a life out of using other people’s money finds himself in a potential heap of trouble. Former Goldman Sachs CEO, Democrat Senator from Noo Joisey, and Governor of Noo Joisey (who violated state seat belt laws every time he rode in a government vehicle and left the state with $8 billion in fresh debt) Jon Corzine runs an investment firm called MF Global. It has just been noticed that MF Global is MISSING hundreds of millions of investor dollars. Of course, the media is just noting that Corzine’s company might have some bookkeeping problems instead of pounding on MF Global like they did with Enron.

M) We know the GOP is on to something serious now, thanks to Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Corruptionois). She compared the GOP Representatives who voted to subpoena White House documents dealing with Solyndra to “birthers”. Whenever conservatives get too close to the truth, Democrats try to belittle them, since the Dems have no factual ammunition.

N) Now this story is funny on two levels. A woman who was 19-years old at the time is claiming to have had sex with Justin Bieber, who was 16 at the time, backstage after a concert and it resulted in her having a baby. She wants child support. First of all, she is admitting to statutory rape, since he was only 16. Secondly, how could he be the father if his balls STILL haven’t dropped?

10-29-2011 The Weekend Claw

Congratulations to the Texas Rangers for pulling off the biggest choke job in Texas sports history. Forty seasons. Zero championships.

A) Once again, an anti-American atheist group is suing a high school because they dare to pray before football games. The atheists once again say that the school is violating the First Amendment’s “establishment clause”, but they obviously have never read said clause, for it reads: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”. Since this is a school or school district making the decision to pray and not Congress making a law, the “establishment clause” is not applicable.

B) That story dovetails nicely with this one, as it involves education, religion, and stooooooopid objections. An investigation has begun by the DC Office on Human Rights (why in the *@#@%^ does a city have that kind of entity?) responding to a complaint against a private Roman Catholic university by muslim students who are offended by the Christian symbols in all of the rooms. That’s like going to a strip club and being offended by nudity. We already over-accommodate muslims in America. When they allow a Catholic cathedral in the center of Mecca, we’ll discuss making more allowances for them here.

C) Here’s more of that liberal “new civility” from line-reader Orlando Jones. I’m happy to say that I do not believe I have spent a single dollar on any of his movies, and I don’t think I ever will. If any white male conservative had done this, he would have been arrested and charged with making a death threat.

D) How in the world do you get an eeeeevillll former Enron trader (they were all Republicans, according to the Democrats and the media, but I repeat myself), who is a billionaire (so he must be a Republican since he is not Warren Buffet) from Texas (where there are no such things as white heterosexual males who are not Republicans) and heads up a group trying to convert all public employee pensions into 401(k) style investments (which hacks off all of the public sector unions) to head up and host a fundraiser for Democrats with the star of the show being none other than micHELLe Obama? This is putting a lot of Houston area Democrats in a big quandary.

E) HYPOCRISY ALERT! (as if the previous stories didn’t give you enough) California is slashing Medicare and Medicaid funding, meaning the poor will have less healthcare available to them. The Obama Administration is giving their blessing to these cutbacks. So here we have the most liberal state legislature in the nation, with perhaps the most liberal Governor in the nation, cutting spending for the poor with the permission of the most liberal President in history, and the media is mum. What are the reactions from the Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) when Republicans even mention cuts to social programs?

F) While he’s out on the “I’m really doing government business, not campaigning on the taxpayer dime” campaign trail, Barack Obama is claiming that over 60% of his 2008 Hopey-Changey campaign promises have been fulfilled. As is the norm when dealing with statements by Barack Obama, he is lying. Then again, math is not his strong suit so he could have just been proving his ignorance of reality…again.

G) Speaking of facts and Obama’s lies, the richest Americans already pay more than their fair share. In fact, the United States has the most “progressive” taxes of all the major industrialized nations.

H) Barack Obama is giving a huge nod to the “occupiers” by putting forth Son of Son of Son of So-Called Stimulus. This time, he is going to be federalizing student loans and only making the folks who took out the loans only pay back the taxpayers a very small fraction of what they borrowed. The idea is to cap student loan repayment rates at 10 percent of a debtor’s income that goes above the poverty line, and then limiting the life of a loan to 20 years. If The Chosen One wants to do something about college affordability, he should attack the colleges and universities. Because they are so heavily subsidized and give full pay and tenure to professors who teach two classes per week, the cost of college education has risen 439% since 1982.

I) Here is a great story that exposes a big reason why our public education system is so poor. In a word, it is liberalism. Hat tip to my co-worker, Ed.

J) Hot Air has a daily feature called the Obamateurism of the Day. The one from Wednesday showed the insatiable ego and self-recognized superiority of the only President in history who is worse than Jimmy Carter.

K) Severe criminal conduct and the oppression of those who stand for the rule of law has been the hallmark of the Obama Administration, and many members of this cabal have been engaging in such behavior for years. This Thursday’s column by Michelle (***sigh***) Malkin spotlights another member of the LEAST transparent Administration in history and her less-than-legal actions in support of the great liberal gods of abortion. When will the Republican Party grow a set large enough to prosecute criminal actions by Democrat leaders?

L) The “supercommittee” was charged with reducing the deficit by $1.2 trillion over a decade. So why are the Democrats in that group trying to spend MORE in yet another so-called stimulus plan? Could it be that they wanted this group to fail so that draconian cuts can be made in national defense and they can blame Republicans for it?

M) Paul Ryan  is going to be one of the greatest conservative politicians in modern history. Here he is once again absolutely schooling Barack Obama on divisive rhetoric and economic reality.

N) Get this! The White House is ordering a review of the loans to Solyndra and other “green” energy companies. Watch for this “review” to completely whitewash any mention of Obama donors and bundlers or any other political connections involved with the loans. Everything will get blamed on some junior junior staffer or the eeeevilll Republicans.

O) So who is out there helping to organize the “occupiers”, raise money (fraudulently it seems) for them, and further their efforts? Could it be Barack Obama’s old “community agitat…er, organizing” group ACORN? You bet it could. There are also other groups behind this junk, and their trail leads directly to people such as Mayor Bloomingidiotberg and the Community Organizer in Chief.

P) Kasim Reed, the Mayor of Atlanta, shut down the “occupiers” and retook Woodruff Park for the people of Atlanta. As Neal Boortz points out, the “occupiers” screech of “This is what democracy looks like” as they were being evicted from the park is actually making the point of the real people of America. In a true democracy, majority (or mobs) rule. In a nation/state/county/municipality with the rule of law, you get permits for large gatherings on public grounds. When the time limit on said permit has expired, you must get the *(#$%@ out!

Q) I must give a language warning for this story and the embedded video of the “occupier” known as “Conan the Occupier”. This spoiled rich kid is a professional student who is transitioning to teaching assistant at Columbia University. Evidently he is quite allergic to the real world, so he will spend his life in academia if possible.

R) “Occupiers” at the Phoenix protests are handing out fliers describing when it is okay to shoot a police officer. Did the mainstream media report any of this? Nope, but they sure opined that the Tea Party protests were full of violent anti-government rhetoric that could have lead to escalations, even though they could never show any such rhetoric on their mass volumes of video and audio of those protests.

S) Then there’s the Portland “occupiers”, who vandalized, urinated on, and danced on a war memorial. Yep, just like the Tea Party, right?

T) Congresscritters from both sides of the aisle are now seriously questioning Barry’s Great Ugandan Adventure, with some even pointing out how this resembles some of our early involvement in Vietnam.

U) It is always a good day when union leaders get arrested, as happened in Noo Yawk this week. Now of course we know that the charges must be local or state in nature, since The Affirmative Action Attorney General’s Injustice Department would never prosecute union thugs in the Era of The Won.

V) If this were to happen in a Republican administration, the media would be up in arms, but since it is the Obama Administration that is requesting the censorship of anti-government posts on You Tube, the media is strangely silent.

W) If any of you are still seriously considering Mitt Romney as a GOP nominee, you need to read this. Then again, I doubt if any of my regular readers are dim enough to support another Taxachusetts liberal flip-flopper.

X) I’ve posted it before, but this cartoon needs to be seen on a regular basis.

10-26-2011 The Weekly Claw

Do ya ever get the feeling that most of the major cities in America are suffering from a severe lack of responsible adults, especially in positions of leadership?

A) The Party of the Trial Lawyers has reached a new low. A Democrat who lost his Congressional seat after a single term is suing a group that helped his opponent in the 2010 elections. He’s claiming a “loss of livelihood” in his suit. The federal judge who is actually allowing the case to go forward is (surprise, surprise) AN OBAMA APPOINTEE! This mental midget was elected when the “Hopey-Changey” movement swept the country, but got his tail kicked out of Congress when the Tea Party awakened American voters and they in turn elected some real adults. If a conservative pulled that kind of entitlement childishness, he or she would be pilloried in every media outlet and would be the butt of jokes by the late-night television “comedians” for weeks.

B) Did y’all ever hear of any arrests of Tea Party activists in any of their protests? Since the Tea Party folks are law and Constitution abiding people, of course not. The “occupiers”, on the other hand, are not what you might call the better class of society. Take a look at the kinds of activities involved with the Occupy Boston protests and the Occupy Oakland protests. Then ask yourself why Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Gaffes Biden, and the rest of the left wing extremists support these folks. The “occupiers” in other cities made sure that they got arrested by staying in the gathering places after their permits expired. When police enforced city ordinances in Chicago, one of the spoiled brats stated “The police came in and again took away our right to free speech and assembly.” No, punk, you still have those rights, but you must comply with posted city ordinances and permits.

C) Victor Davis Hanson has an interesting take on the mindset shown by most of the college-age “occupiers”, and it meshes with what The Crawfish and many of his readers have opined lately. Lots of these kids are deep in debt from student loans (or their parents are), and they are coming to realize that all of the classes they have taken have just been liberal indoctrination that has not given them any chance of getting a real job with a real future. They can’t go off on their beloved liberal academia, so they are throwing hissy fits.

D) Democrat Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren of Taxachusetts is taking credit for the “intellectual foundation” of the “occupiers”. They have an intellectual foundation? Since when? I mean, when they don’t even know why they are protesting, and are made up of or supported by druggies, anarchists, socialists, communists, Iranian mullahs, and Nazis what kind of intellectual foundation do they have? I just have to include this link here because it shows the vapidity of these left-wing stooges.

E) The “occupiers” want all sorts of free money, including the elimination of all of their student loans, but now they are quibbling amongst themselves over, get this, the distribution of money that has been donated to their cause. They have even set up a mini-government just like the one they want to get rid of. Hypocrisy?

F) The Democrats and their media suckups keep trying to say that the Tea Party rallies were full of hate and racism, although they can never show any examples of such behavior. Meanwhile, they completely ignore all of the hate and racism that pervades their “occupy” rallies. Once again, if the liberals try to pin some sort of behavior on conservatives, it usually means that it is behavior that liberals are truly guilty of.

G) The spokesperson for “Pervs R Us”, also known as the Transportation Security Agency, is denying that one of their agents was behind the note in this story, despite it being written on one of their forms and found inside luggage after an overseas flight. If the female in this story had been ugly, I would have spared my male readers the need to use brain bleach by not including it.

H) Here’s something else from overseas that the “occupiers” and the American left will probably be calling for in the near future. Yes, this report sponsored by the Labour Party in Britain calls for older empty-nesters to be heavily taxed if they stay in houses that are larger than they really need. Who says how big is too much for the needs? What if the family has grandchildren that come to visit for a couple of weeks during the summertime?

I) Jimmy “the dhimmi” Carter started this process with his turning over of Iran to the Mad Mullahs, who executed more people in a single year than the Shah’s security forces did in over two decades. The Chosen One is continuing the process, as Tunisia and Egypt are already being taken over by islamist theocratic governments, and now Libya is going the same way. Maybe the mullahs were correct last year when they said Barack Obama was the great hope for a new Worldwide Caliphate, or at least one throughout the Middle East.

J) Meanwhile, Obama shows a complete lack of class and respect when dealing with one of the moderating nations in the world of Islam. Crown Prince Sultan bin Abd al-Aziz, the heir apparent to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, died in Noo Yawk on Saturday. The Chosen One sent his statement of condolence from the golf course at Andrews Air Force Base, where he was playing round 27 for the year with three junior aides.

K) Just as predicted here, the Israeli sellout of exchanging over 1000 so-called palestinian terrorists for a single Israeli soldier has done nothing but embolden the terroristic death cult known as Islam to kidnap more Israelis, especially soldiers. Now there is a “cleric” who is offering over $100,000 to any Follower of the Pedophilic False Prophet who kidnaps an Israeli soldier.

L) Democrats seem to screw up foreign policy as much as they do domestic policy. Our good friend Gunny G gives us a history lesson that shows why we should never again let a Democrat (or a liberal Republican) occupy the White House.

M) A liberal federal judge has thrown out Florida’s state law that demands drug testing for welfare benefits, saying it is a violation of the 4th Amendments unreasonable search clause. What this judge failed to note is that giving taxpayer money to those who are too damned lazy to get a job is more unConstitutional than demanding that leeches prove that the money we give them isn’t going straight to the drug cartels.

N) A top American nuclear power regulator is stating that nobody died from radiation exposure at the Fukushima nuke plants that were devastated by the earthquake-tsunami combo in Japan. Is that what they are saying for public consumption or is it the truth? I don’t know if I believe it or not.

O) In response to His Majesty’s newest plan to fix the housing market, a foreclosure expert said, “The previous three plans haven’t been effective — and this one isn’t going to be effective, either.” Correct. What would have PREVENTED this problem would have been the repeal of the Community Reinvestment Act, REAL supervision of the Democrat crooks who were running Fannie and Freddie into the ground while collecting tens of millions in bonuses, and banks/lending institutions having the ability to tell people that they were not going to make those loans because those folks had no way on God’s green earth to afford such loans.

P) While The Won is out fundraising in Hollyweird, the press pool is forbidden from taking any photos at the lavish high-dollar events, but they are more than welcome to photograph The Won at Roscoe’s House of Chicken ‘n Waffles in El Lay. You see, even though King Barack I and Queen micHELLe Antoinette believe that anybody whose net worth is under $5 million is beneath them, they want to be known as at home with the commoners, and the media is more than happy to oblige them. As Andre Agassi once said in a camera commercial, “Image is everything.”

Q) The Anointed One even has the State Department raising funds for him, although they are not for his campaign. The State Department has recently purchased over $70,000.00 worth of Barack Obama’s ghost-written books to put into libraries around the world and to use as gifts. I’d say that is a gross misuse of government funds and that whoever authorized the purchases should be put on trial starting February 1, 2013.

R) At least there is one union leader in our nation who has the cojones to stand before Congress and testify about how the Administration is intentionally violating our federal laws. The president of the union that represents ICE officers testified that the Administration has ORDERED ICE agents to not arrest illegal aliens that have criminal records and deportation orders against them. This order also extends to those who have been deported and have re-entered, thus committing a felony. When are we going to see any criminal proceedings against the crooks in this Administration?

S) I’ve posted it before, but this cartoon needs to be seen on a regular basis.

10-22-2011 The Weekend Claw

The Crawfish has a whopping three weeks left of being employed (oh how I love the life of a UNION worker), so if it looks like I ain’t taking the time to answer all comments, it might be because I’m busy looking for work.

A) “If you want to understand how totally broken Washington is, look at this entire model of a super committee, which has now got a magic number to achieve and if it doesn’t achieve the magic number then we’ll all have to shoot ourselves in the head. So when they come back with a dumb idea to merely cut off our right leg, we will all be grateful that they are only semi-stupid instead of being totally stupid.” That quote comes from none other than Newt Gingrich at Tuesday’s GOP debate. Ninety five percent of the time he is the smartest man in the room. It’s those other five percent that make him a non-starter as a GOP nominee.

B) “I guarantee it’s going to be a close election because the economy is not where it wants to be and even though I believe all the choices we’ve made have been the right ones.” That comes from The Chosen One. Yes, he still believes that every single disastrous decision he has made regarding the economy of our nation has been the right one. That can only mean one thing. His goal all along has been to “fundamentally change” our nation by destroying capitalism and replacing it with fascist-socialism.

C) While real Americans who are in economic trouble have things like Hamburger Helper for dinner, the socialist-anarchists at Zuccotti Park in Noo Yawk are getting gourmet meals delivered to them every night. This is the ultimate spoiled brat temper tantrum, not a coherent protest!

D) Just take a look at who supports these “occupiers” and realize what the goals really are. The “occupiers” don’t want to revive a middle class or anything of the sort. They want to destroy jobs, destroy capitalism, and get everything they want for free. The folks who support them want the death of America.

E) A black multimillionaire supporter of the “occupiers” admits on television that he refuses to pay taxes, but the media is completely silent about it. If this was a white conservative, he’d already be in federal custody.

F) Someone finally came up with some good signs for the “occupiers”.

G) Gaddafi Duck got the end he deserved, and Barack Obama is taking some of the credit (don’t all African dictators eventually turn on each other?). Of course, this and the other wars he’s started or joined don’t exactly fit the image of a Nobel Peace Prize awardee.

H) Bryant Gumbel of HBO’s “Real Sports” show said that National Basketball Association Commissioner David Stern is acting like a “plantation owner” with regards to league labor talks. In other words, he believes the Commish acts like the players are slaves. What kind of slaves average $4.8 MILLION per year in salary? The NBA players got 57% of all basketball revenue on their latest union contract, and are being asked to scale that back a few percentage points. Is that really being treated like slaves? Gumbel is using this analogy because the majority of NBA players are black, he’s black, and most of the owners are white.

I) So just how efficient are those electric cars being developed with OUR tax dollars? Just what you’d expect. Take what the government and those getting money from the government say, and know they’re lying through their teeth. This company got half a billion dollars from us, and they make the cars in FINLAND. Why are WE giving them a penny? Maybe because the company’s investors are Democratic power names and Democrat campaign bundlers? This pattern of crony capitalism is really disturbing.

J) Janet Incompetano has admitted in Senate testimony that her department is authorizing illegal aliens to work in our country, even if they have no right to be here in the first place. I have nothing to say here that would adequately describe my disgust with this Administration.

K) Another federal judge has joined in the fight to keep America from developing our own energy resources. Since it is the avowed position of the Obama Administration to raise our energy costs, it comes as no surprise to see that Judge William Martinez was elevated to his current position by none other than Barack Hussein Obama. The sooner we can get rid of Obama and most of the Democrats in the House and Senate, the sooner we can start getting rid of left-wing ideologue judges who pay no attention to the Constitution.

L) Justice Antonin Scalia made some interesting remarks in Chicago. The first half of this short article is not what I’m talkin’ ‘bout.

M) If Herman Cain is making the big labor union thugs nervous enough to attack him, he must be proposing something very good for America. In this case, part of his plans involves making areas “right to work”, which should be the case for every square inch of our nation. Another part would be to eliminate the unConstitutional minimum wage. Since nobody has ever been able to point out where the federal government gets any authority to have a say in the private business contracts between employer and employee, the Tenth Amendment applies, meaning there cannot be any federal minimum wage.

N) Someone in South Carolina made a sign that none of my readers will be able to argue with.

O) The ACLU is up in arms again. They are accusing the FBI of racially profiling muslims and other minorities. If the FBI is racially profiling, that means that they are DOING THEIR JOB PROPERLY! If the ACLU doesn’t like the FACT that muslims have a much higher probability of being terrorists, they should tell the muslims to stop being terrorists. If they don’t like the FACT that blacks have a much higher crime rate than any other race in America, they should tell the blacks to start acting civilized or go back to Africa.

P) Top Injustice Department officials have been meeting recently with Islamic terrorist advocates, who want the anti-terrorism programs cut back, additional curbs on investigation of muslims, and a legal declaration that criticism of Islam by any American citizen is criminal racial discrimination. Since they are lobbying the “Civil Rights Division”, the same folks who refuse to prosecute Black Panthers, they are barking up the right tree. Holder and his boss will support these efforts.

Q) Meanwhile, Democrats are circling the wagons to protest Rep. Issa’s investigations into Fast and Furious, Gunrunner, Castaway, etc. They are feigning outrage that he keeps investigating things that Eric Holder has denied, despite the evidence. Heck, even the HuffPo knows there’s something dreadfully wrong going on in this Administration with regards to these cases.
