Angry, Mean Obama Supporters?

I keep hearing about all the reports of rage and hatred at McCain-Palin rallies.  The liberals are outraged and scared of the McCain “mob”.

What a joke.  This is how liberals treat McCain supporters in New York city.  Anything at a McCain rally would likely be pretty tame compared to this.

Obama’s New Presidential Seal Likely Illegal

Just in case you didn’t think the Obama campaign couldn’t get more arrogant, the Obama campaign unveiled a new Presidential Seal in his run for the Presidency. I’m not sure if this is just supposed to be a cheap campaign gimmick or we’re supposed to actually take this seriously. Is Obama really supposed to look more “presidential” sitting behind this thing?

The hilarious thing is that this silly seal might just land him or one of his staffers in jail for 6 months because it’s an obvious rip off of the Seal of the President among others.

18 USC Sec. 713 …
(a) Whoever knowingly displays any printed or other likeness of the great seal of the United States, or of the seals of the President or the Vice President of the United States, or the seal of the United States Senate, or the seal of the United States House of Representatives, or the seal of the United States Congress, or any facsimile thereof, in, or in connection with, any advertisement, poster, circular, book, pamphlet, or other publication, public meeting, play, motion picture, telecast, or other production, or on any building, monument, or stationery, for the purpose of conveying, or in a manner reasonably calculated to convey, a false impression of sponsorship or approval by the Government of the United States or by any department, agency, or instrumentality thereof, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.

(b) Whoever, except as authorized under regulations promulgated by the President and published in the Federal Register, knowingly manufactures, reproduces, sells, or purchases for resale, either separately or appended to any article manufactured or sold, any likeness of the seals of the President or Vice President, or any substantial part thereof, except for manufacture or sale of the article for the official use of the Government of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.

The real question is who is going to call his campaign on this? I would imagine that President Bush might have some say in this….it is a rip-off of his seal after all.

Brr! This Global Warming is Freezing My Skin!

It will be interesting to see how the global warming Nazis continue to spin the barrage of data against their cause. It makes me wonder how this can continue with the evidence just piling up against this movement. As reported several weeks ago, over 31,000 scientists across the U.S.–including 9,000 Ph.D.s in fields such as atmospheric science, climatology, Earth science, environment and dozens of other specialties, have signed a petition that rejects the basic tenants of “global warming”. The so-called “scientific consensus” supporting global warming does not exist and now even more data is available that debunks this wide spread unfounded notion.

But the latest news is that global temperatures continued to fall and did so significantly in May 2008.

From Anthony Watts:

Compared to the May 2007 value of 0.199°C we find a 12 month ∆T is -.379°C.

But even more impressive is the change since the last big peak in global temperature in January 2007 at 0.594°C, giving a 16 month ∆T of -0.774°C which is equal in magnitude to the generally agreed upon “global warming signal” of the last 100 years.

So, in other words, ever since this man-made global warming notion was sold to the general public, global temperatures have actually plateaued and even fallen slightly. Carbon emissions have continued to rise, yet there is almost no response in the temperature graph despite this rise.  No one is debating that the last number of years have been hot, but the cause is what is debatable.  It’s funny that the environmentalists ignore the fact that the temperature of several of the planets in our own galaxy have risen to a similar degree.

Man-made global warming is not based on fact. It is an ideology that is rooted in destroying the “western” way of life. It seeks to place us as the cause of all the problems in the world. The way we assuage our guilt is becoming poorer–we drive less, we use less, we eat less. There are even new “green” websites that will tell you when you should die, so that you don’t use up too much of the earth’s resources.

The goal of the man made global warming movement is to beholden us to environmentalism and their political views–not to actually save the planet. Besides, from much of the recent data, it looks like we don’t need saving from much of anything–other than perhaps global idiocy.

Obama’s Church Back At It Again

Barack Obama has already pronounced this sermon that went on at his church as disappointing. Strangely enough, 20 years of this didn’t cause him to bat an eye, yet all of a sudden whenever something controversial comes out at his church, he feels the need to separate himself from it. Kind of convenient timing, don’t you think?

Check out what the nice Catholic Priest Michael Pfleger had to say from the pulpit at Obama’s church this past week.

Barack Obama: Media Darling

If you follow politics closely, there is a distinct media bias in this country that is evidenced almost on a daily basis. In this current political season regarding Barack Obama, it is more observable than ever.

Never in my life have I witnessed one politician “misspeak” so many times in such a short period and have it utterly ignored my the main stream media. Most candidates are crucified for gaffes. Can you remember what happened with Dan Quayle spelled potatoe? Or when John Kerry said he voted for the $87 billion before he voted against it?

Obama Pakistan

Michelle Malkin compiled a list of gaffes made by Barack Obama in just the last year.

— Last May, he claimed that tornadoes in Kansas killed a whopping 10,000 people: “In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people died — an entire town destroyed.” The actual death toll: 12.

— Earlier this month in Oregon, he redrew the map of the United States: “Over the last 15 months, we’ve traveled to every corner of the United States. I’ve now been in 57 states? I think one left to go.”

— Last week, in front of a roaring Sioux Falls, S.D., audience, Obama exulted: “Thank you, Sioux City. … I said it wrong. I’ve been in Iowa for too long. I’m sorry.”

— Explaining last week why he was trailing Hillary Clinton in Kentucky, Obama again botched basic geography: “Sen. Clinton, I think, is much better known, coming from a nearby state of Arkansas. So it’s not surprising that she would have an advantage in some of those states in the middle.” On what map is Arkansas closer to Kentucky than Illinois?

— Obama has as much trouble with numbers as he has with maps. Last March, on the anniversary of the Bloody Sunday march in Selma, Ala., he claimed his parents united as a direct result of the civil rights movement:

“There was something stirring across the country because of what happened in Selma, Ala., because some folks are willing to march across a bridge. So they got together and Barack Obama Jr. was born.”

Obama was born in 1961. The Selma march took place in 1965. His spokesman, Bill Burton, later explained that Obama was “speaking metaphorically about the civil rights movement as a whole.”

— Earlier this month in Cape Girardeau, Mo., Obama showed off his knowledge of the war in Afghanistan by homing in on a lack of translators: “We only have a certain number of them, and if they are all in Iraq, then it’s harder for us to use them in Afghanistan.” The real reason it’s “harder for us to use them” in Afghanistan: Iraqis speak Arabic or Kurdish. The Afghanis speak Pashto, Farsi or other non-Arabic languages.

— Over the weekend in Oregon, Obama pleaded ignorance of the decades-old, multi-billion-dollar massive Hanford nuclear waste cleanup:

“Here’s something that you will rarely hear from a politician, and that is that I’m not familiar with the Hanford, uuuuhh, site, so I don’t know exactly what’s going on there. (Applause.) Now, having said that, I promise you I’ll learn about it by the time I leave here on the ride back to the airport.”

I assume on that ride, a staffer reminded him that he’s voted on at least one defense authorization bill that addressed the “costs, schedules, and technical issues” dealing with the nation’s most contaminated nuclear waste site.

— Last March, the Chicago Tribune reported this little-noticed nugget about a fake autobiographical detail in Obama’s “Dreams from My Father”:

“Then, there’s the copy of Life magazine that Obama presents as his racial awakening at age 9. In it, he wrote, was an article and two accompanying photographs of an African-American man physically and mentally scarred by his efforts to lighten his skin. In fact, the Life article and the photographs don’t exist, say the magazine’s own historians.”

— And in perhaps the most seriously troubling set of gaffes of them all, Obama told a Portland crowd over the weekend that Iran doesn’t “pose a serious threat to us” — cluelessly arguing that “tiny countries” with small defense budgets can’t do us harm — and then promptly flip-flopped the next day, claiming, “I’ve made it clear for years that the threat from Iran is grave

People are going to eventually catch onto this. If he claims Arabic is spoken in Afghanistan or that there he’s been to 57 states during one of the debates with McCain, Obama will be in real trouble. The media won’t be able to hide that one anymore. Right now, he’s got the entire national media in his back pocket, so no one hears about the gaffes that he makes in Podunk City, Indiana.

The media and money machine that is Barack Obama will continue to roll through November unless:

1. The Republicans figure out a message (and a conservative one at that)

2. The public realizes out how clueless Obama is

3. Hillary figures out a way to steal the nomination. Don’t think it’s out of the question yet.

4. That “kill whitey” video of Michelle Obama surfaces (I’ve heard that one does exist)

I’m not too optimistic, but I’m hoping that at least #1 happens before 2012.

Obama Asks Us To Sacrifice Our Food

In front of a crowd of 75,000 people in Portland, Oregon, Barack Obama made the following statment:

“We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK”

This type of speech sounds strangely familiar to what we heard out of John Kerry four years ago with his “global test” comment. But is Obama for real with these comments? Is he really prepared to limit driving and how much we eat?

Is this what his campaign is about? Limiting our freedoms? Because if it is, it sounds and awful lot like socialism to me. Would an Obama Administration really bring an end to “eating as much as we want?” Do we need other countries’ approval to eat as much as we want or drive as much as we want? Under Obama, would we really need the government’s approval to set our thermostats to 72 degrees?

If Obama isn’t serious about this, then why is he bringing it up on the campaign trail? And how does he intend on regulating our overeating? Air strikes on Chinese buffets across America?

Michelle Obama has made similar statments:

“The truth is, in order to get things like universal health care and a revamped education system, then someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more.”

Translation: You have to give up your good education and good healthcare so everyone can have lousy education and healthcare, because that’s the new American way.

The Obama’s preach the Robin Hood philosophy. Take more from the rich and give more to the poor. Maybe someone close to Michelle should share with her that we already spend 60% of our federal budget on entitlements. If you get that number any higher we are bordering on an entire nanny state and the complete wussification of America. But, that of course, is the new goal of the Democratic party.

Supreme Court Legalizes Gay Marraige in California

Today the California Supreme Court overruled a legislative ban on gay marriage by a 4-3 decision. Chief Justice Ron George wrote for the majority and stated that domestic partnerships are not a good enough substitute for marriage. With this ruling, California becomes only the second state after Massachusetts to legalize gay marriage.

Click here to read the Supreme Court Decision.

Gay marriage

Naturally, gay marriage supporters hailed this ruling as a victory for their cause. However, their battle is far from over.

Currently, a coalition of religious and conservative social groups is putting together a measure that may make it onto the November ballot. The measure needs 694,354 signatures to make it on the ballot and these groups claim they have already accumulated 1.1 million signatures. This measure would allow the voters of California to decide whether or not to put a ban on gay marriage in the California constitution. If this measure passes in November, this will trump the California Supreme Court’s decision.

We can be certain that gay marriage advocacy groups will fight any measure allowing the California voters to decide this. Liberal activist groups are rarely successful implementing their agenda with voters or elected officials, so resorting to the judiciary to get their way is what we’ve come to expect.

The ruling set off a big celebration at San Francisco City Hall. This will, no doubt, be an issue in this year’s election process and is a winning issue for conservatives if they choose to use it.
