Weekend Reading (Good Blogs!)

Blogodidact | Have you thought about what ‘What you mean’, means?

If you don’t start your thought process from principles, you are extremely likely to violate them. If you don’t begin a political discussion with fundamental law and Rights fixed firmly in mind, then what you are going to propose, is very likely going to violate them both. Egregiously so.

Isn’t that a problem? Shouldn’t that be a concern? Or do you not consider the fundamentals of our system of  law (you know, that pesky ‘Constitution’ thingy) to be important, because all you want to do is regulate things? Or do you not give due consideration to Rights, because you don’t care about, or believe in, Rights?

Liberty At Stake | Aye, yii, yii, yiiii, I am the Barry Bandito.

Charles Krauthammer has his soap box with its millions of viewers to decry the Lawless President 

Meanwhile, the Pundies ably cover this latest outrage from the Lawless President.

Of course, this isn’t the first time we have observed the Lawless President shredding the constitution, and it certainly won’t be the last if my republic buys the Faustian bargain offered by the petty little tyrant. Memo to Undocumented Democrats: what this year’s Empty Suit can giveth, next year’s Empty Suit can taketh away.

Catholibertarian | Another First for Obama: Religious Freedom Sections Removed from State Departments Human Rights Report

Why would the Obama administration do this? Well, they are attacking our religious freedom with the HHS mandate and have done other things to attack the Catholic Church and traditional Christianity so… this administration obviously doesn’t think too much of people’s right to religious freedom here in the USA so why would they care?

THE ASTUTE BLOGGERS | CAR MANUFACTURERS SHOULDN’T BE SETTING UP SHOP IN ISLAMIZING COUNTRIES LIKE TURKEY

Toyota’s been attacked for trying to restrict Muslim prayer among their employees at the factory they own in Turkey.  …

With creeping sharia in Turkey, it’s about time they close shop there and turn to other places where they’d find employees more up to the task, including the USA, where Renault might want to try selling their cars and trucks again.

Zilla of the Resistance at MareZilla.com | Its Just How I Am

Remember watching an old re-run of I Love Lucy one day in which Lucy became acquainted with a band of misfits who called themselves “The Friends of the Friendless” whose organization reached out to social outcasts?

Zilla explains her personal mission to be a “Friend of the Friendless.”

Adrienne’s Corner | I thought my capacity to be shocked had about reached it’s limits…

It was bad enough when Obama had a reception for homosexuals in the White House.  Really?  The White House hosts a reception for people who identify themselves by the manner in which they have sex?  When do the rest of us get a reception?

Picture And Video: Gay Activist Invited To White House Gives Reagan Portrait The Finger

Allow Michael Voris to back up what I’ve been saying all along:  There is something really odd about people who self-identify by the manner in which they engage in sex.  It’s perverse.

The Tree of Mamre | Godfather of Global Warming Theory Comes Out Against Climate Hysteria

Everyone agrees that the science on climate change is settled, and that global warming skeptics are all either deranged, dishonest, or deluded.

Well, maybe not everyone.  Certainly not the proprietor of the Motor City Times, anyway.

motorcitytimes.com | According to latest green logic all roads lead to no electricity

According to the latest green “logic” any sequestration of carbon dioxide (the gas all humans exhale and is plant food) created as a byproduct from a reliable electrical generation source- coal is a moot point because carbon (dioxide) sequestration cause….

Earthquakes. No really, earthquakes.

Ethanol blended with gasoline has been around for a number ofyears. Most of you are forced by our benevolent government to buy gasoline blended with up to 15% ethanol. Ethanol/gasoline blenders receive large subsidies from our benevolent government which you get to pay for when you buy your gasoline.

America’s Chronicle | Why Is Nancy Pelosi Leader of Anybody?

Nancy Pelosi said that Republican efforts to hold Eric Holder in contempt for withholding information on the Fast And Furious failed gun running scheme with the Mexican Drug Cartels have really nothing to do with that but it is all a shameful attempt to suppress the vote of minorities like little green bulgy-eyed men with antennas and magic fingers, some of whom have manage to get elected to the US Congress and become majority and minority leaders.

J O S H U A P U N D I T | The President As Huckster

Aside from selling questionable designer fashion ware, the Obama campaign is now involved in yet another sleazy endeavor.

Boston 1775 | Visiting William Carpenter at the Worcester Art Museum

Ralph Earls portrait of William Carpenter, an English lad about twelve years old in 1779. Its not the most graceful painting, but it conveys a lot of personality. Its also one of many pieces of visual evidence that the preferred hairstyle for British and American boys in the 1770s was,, alas, the mullet.

Conservative Hideout 2.0 | World Enemy No. 1: Maurice Strong?

There is a lot of competition for that title. Some names that jump to mind are Barack Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton, George Soros, Hugo Chavez, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Ban Ki-moon and, it’s certain you could add others  to the list. But, probably none have had more global impact of Maurice Strong. A self-proclaimed life long socialist, he is often refered to as the father of international environmentalism and the father of the global warming scare and the father of the UN’s Agenda 21 and its goal of “sustainable living”.

Conservative Outcry | F**K Ronald Reagan And The Horse He Rode In On?

What Happens When You Let Gay Philly Activists Into the White House?

They tell Ronald Reagan to F**k Off.

Matty Hart, National Director of Public Engagement at Solutions for Progress,  had no problem symbolizing her dislike of Reagan. She was, after all, an invited guest of our beloved leader, Barack Obama.

Western Free Press | Obama: The Biggest Spender In World History

Not so long ago, commentator Rex Nutting threw the president a gift: He did an analysis of federal spending that magically didn’t include Obama’s first year, in order to show that Obama is not the big spender he is accused of being. Obama immediately picked up the claim and waved it in all our faces, like Neville Chamberlain standing on an airfield proclaiming peace for our time. Of course, Obama’s claim was no more valid than the promises held aloft in Chamberlain’s document.

Seeing Red AZ | Blue card Quayle called out by US Rep.Schweikert

As CD 6 race heats up, one man is clearly the adult and it isn’t Benny/”Brock” The Schweikert for Congress campaign has welcomed Ben Quayle’s decision to abandon his previous support for policies that he admitted were “backdoor amnesty” and oppose policies like President Obama’s plan to allow illegal immigrants under the age of 30.

Be Sure You’re RIGHT, Then Go Ahead | Worst President Ever? Its Indescribably True

Chronicling the misdeeds, abuses of power, ruinous policies, and everyday stupidities of this, the most left-wing and consequently the most destructive administration in the 236 year history of the Republic, is a chore that would challenge the descriptive powers of old Will Shakespeare or Charlie Dickens, let alone us laptop wielding conservatives with microchips on our shoulders.

Cold Fury | Off with his head!

Bill provides an analysis and review that elegantly underlines the genius of the Founders, and highlights yet again why it was such a horrendous mistake to stray from their blueprint for good government: Impeachment and conviction is the most political process open to the federal government.

Persecution Update keeps you informed of what is going on in our world concerning persecuted Christians.

A Conservative Teacher | Number of Limousines Drops 34% Under Obama? Or is it Up 73%?

President Barack Obama is the kind of politician that the world has seen many times over- someone who rises to power by hiding who he really is and pretending to care about inequality in wealth, only to reveal himself as the true radical that he is once he gets political power and live the lifestyle of the superwealthy and reward those who helped him to live a life of luxury by squandering taxpayers money on golf, junkets, kick-backs, shady loans, parties with celebrities, trips to foreign nations, fancy foods, personal chefs, and limousines.

I Don’t Get It | Brendan Haas Already a Hero

With all the misery, violence, crime, and depressing news about the economy we read about everyday, it’s always wonderful and refreshing to read something that continues to give you faith in our fellow man and reminds us that there is still plenty of goodness out there. Case in point, nine-year old Brendan Haas.

Ironic Surrealism | LOL! GOP Sends Elizabeth Fauxahoncahontas Warren Free Ancestry.com Acct For Her Birthday

Old Virginia Blog | Yes, It Could Happen Here

 Recall during the heated healthcare debate that Sarah Palin was mocked and lampooned for suggesting the government takeover of healthcare would result in “death panels?” Well, a British doctor has charged that is exactly what they have in their socialized medical system:
The National Health Service is Britain’s socialized medicine scheme. At issue this week is something called the “Liverpool Care Pathway” or LCP, which was developed in hospices in the 1990s. The purpose of the LCP is to comfort the terminally ill who have no chance of making a recovery. In the mid-2000s the NHS adopted the LCP as a recommended practice nationwide for patients who were not expected to survive.At present, 29 percent of all patients who die in Britain have been placed on the Liverpool Care Pathway by their doctors. Presumably, all of these patients are terminally ill, but as Dr. Pullicino explains, this is a self-fulfilling prophecy . . .
Yes, we know. that would NEVER happen here.

Political Realities | Richard Griffin Former Union Lawyer Appointed To The NLRB

If there was ever a question about President Obama’s ties to organized labor, let them rest in peace. If you have followed the first three years of the Obama administration, you know how he has catered to the labor unions. It is plain to see. However, nothing is so blatant as his appointment of Richard Griffin to the NLRB. Talk about stacking the deck. Obama did a number with this one appointment. Never let it be said this President hasn’t tried to pay back some of his largest campaign donors, in spades. He loves him some labor and he lets it show. Just who is Richard Griffin? According to Fox News, he was once the general counsel, read top lawyer, for the 400,000-member union of heavy equipment operators, IUOE. It is of more than passing interest that this union is known for its ties to the mob. Public documents obtained by Fox News show that more than 60 IUOE members have been arrested, indicted or jailed in the last decade on charges that include labor racketeering, extortion,criminal enterprise, bodily harmand workplace sabotage.

Publius-Huldah’s Blog | The Biblical Foundation of Our Constitution.

The English Puritans who came here in the 1630s knew that the Old Testament has a great deal to say about civil government. And they came to build that shining city on a hill. They did not come here to escape from the World or to wait for the end of the World.

The Bitter Americans | Look Deeper

The Tea Party isn’t there to support Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, or any other party for that matter.  They are fighting for candidates who understand and honor the Constitution of the United States and as Zell Miller said, are “unashamed of his belief God is not indifferent to America.”

(The Bitter American is running for local office!)

Godfather Politics | Compassion for Jack Osbournes Multiple Sclerosis but Derision for Ann Romneys

Jack and Sharon Osbourne are on the cover of People Magazines July 2, 2012 issue.  Without taking anything from the Osbournes, here’s how Lawrence O’Donnell of MSNBC (naturally) handled Ann Romney’s MS in an interview with her husband,

 

Doug Ross @ Journal | Remember when they confiscated forks and knives at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner?

You don’t? That’s because they didn’t.

You won’t find it, even if you search high and low for examples like yesterday’s bizarre incident where a group of Latino government officials were required to surrender their forks and knives.

The Lonely Conservative | Pelosi Urged Obama to Unilaterally Abolish the Debt Limit

Now that Nancy Pelosi is no longer in the majority in the House she believes Congress is irrelevant and that President Obama should just rule by fiat. At least that’s the impression she left when she said Obama should just unilaterally abolish the debt limit by declaring it unconstitutional.

The People’s Cube | Victims Of Islamic Intimidation, Unite!

On June 5, 2012, a radical Islamic organization, CAIR-Florida, sent out a mass mailing with this message:

CAIR Florida has been receiving an increase in complaints by law abiding American Muslims inappropriately targeted by law enforcement for questioning. This is a direct result of Islamophobic training CAIR has discovered many law enforcement officers in Florida are receiving. Join us this Saturday for an important program to learn how to protect yourself, your family, and your community against harassment by law enforcement or discrimination by businesses.

 

Ana the Imp | How Many Camels is Obama Worth?


Al-Shabaab, the Somali offshoot of al-Qaeda, has offered a bounty of ten camels to whoever reveals the hideout of that idiot Obama.  Its their response to the US State Department’s recent announcement of a reward of several million dollars for information on the whereabouts of the movements leadership.

Ana wonders if, perhaps, the Somalis are being a little too generous in their assessment of the beleaguered Presidents worth.  Ten camels seems excessive for a man who recently said that the American private sector was doing fine, an assessment, she hazards, not quite in keeping with the experience of most people struggling with the economic realities of Obama World.

Conservative Byte | Exodus: Wisconsin Government Workers Abandon Unions in Droves

Wisconsin membership in the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees – the state’s second-largest public-sector union after the National Education Association, which represents teachers – fell to 28,745 in February from 62,818 in March 2011, according to a person who has viewed Afscme’s figures. A spokesman for Afscme declined to comment. Much of that decline came from Afscme Council 24, which represents Wisconsin state workers, whose membership plunged by two-thirds to 7,100 from 22,300 last year.

thesteadyconservative | The Rule of Law and Immigration

You are President. What do you do when the economy is bad and not getting better? When there are calls for your AG to resign? When you have been handed a devastating loss in a key battleground state? Why you do what the Romans would do. You distract.

WyBlog | And the Rachel Corrie Award For Sand-Pounding Stupidity goes to…

Today’s History Lesson | War of 1812 Set to Begin on Senate Vote

As June of 1812 started, President James Madison had asked Congress for a declaration of war against the British.  The British were arming Native Americans, who then used that hardware to kill Americans. The British were arming Native Americans, who then used that hardware to kill Americans.  The British were capturing U.S. ships and forcing their captives to fight on British ships.  The British were blockading France, preventing U.S. trade with an important ally.

SENTRY JOURNAL | Paid Protesters Heckle Romney?

It’s more likely than you think. According to at least some of the anti-Romney protesters out there, the phrase rent-a-mob is a bit more spot on than the President’s campaign is willing to admit. Buzzfeed has more…

DeWitt, Mich. The protesters popping up at Mitt Romney’s rallies throughout Michigan Tuesday look like run-of-the-mill grassroots liberals they wave signs about “the 99 percent,” they chant about the Republican’s greed, and they describe themselves as a loosely organized coalition of “concerned citizens.”

They’re also getting paid, two of the protesters and an Obama campaign official told BuzzFeed.
