You Can’t Make This Stuff Up

Posted by Thunder Pig on January 15, 2008

I found this little gem of absurdity on Crooks and Liars:

Part of being pro-choice is actually respecting choices that would not be the one that you personally would make. That said, and as a mother myself, I have to say that I HATE Crisis Pregnancy Center, who has a very prominent banner sign very close to my local high school. Bullying and lying to a teenager to get her to keep a pregnancy that she may not be emotionally, physically or financially able to handle is just child abuse in my opinion.

The blogger was noting a Huckabee visit to the Carolina Pregnancy Center.

So, according to the blogger, child abuse is worse than murder. Only from the mouth (or keyboard) from the anti-life would one hear that absurdity. They hate life so very much, they do not even want the young women to give their babies up for adoption, preferring to sacrifice them to their dark god(s).

At least Huckabee gets it right on the ongoing holocaust that is abortion.

Hello World

Posted by Thunder Pig on January 15, 2008

I created this account to comment on a blog, and might as well play around with this platform to see if it is better than blogger, which I have used since May 2005 at Thunder Pig.

I also have a fledgling headline news site I have operated since November 2006 at West Carolina Report.

Frustrated that I can’t find the embed code for these videos, I went ahead and downloaded it myself. You can see more videos at MNF-Iraq, where I swiped this one.

West Carolina Report for Jan 15th Updated with video

Posted by Thunder Pig on January 15, 2008

I’ve updated West Carolina Report for today.

And yesterday, Rush Limbaugh conducted the best opening monologue I have ever heard him give…and that is saying something!!!
The background music is “When Johnny Comes Marching Home,” and I associate it with one of my favorite movies of all time, “Dr Strangelove.” It was only when I was in High School that I found out the movie was supposed to be anti-war. Go figure, I thought it was pro-war, and I still thoroughly enjoy it!

Enjoy the video version, which I understand has the added value of Rush on the dittocam:

part one

part two

I also have a stereo version I may upload later today that I recorded yesterday while the show was in progress.

A thoughtful reader notified me that the videos weren’t working, so I tested them, and they are working for me, but I will use the opportunity to create a playlist so the two videos will play one after the other. Feel free to embed them on your own website, as I believe all should be able to observe greatness in action!

Senator Lamar Alexander Says: Stopping The Road To Nowhere ‘A Good Christmas Present For Tennessee’

Posted by Thunder Pig on January 15, 2008

From the desk of Tennessee Senator Lamar Alexander about a North Carolina problem:

December 21, 2006

The Honorable Mary A. Bomar
National Park Service
1849 C Street NW
Washington, D.C. 20240

Dear Director Bomar,

I am writing to suggest that a good Christmas present for the people of Tennessee and North Carolina would be a National Park Service decision to abandon the proposed $600 million “Road to Nowhere” through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

The Environmental Impact Statement review for this proposed road is near a conclusion. Now is the time to bring this dispute – which has lasted since World War II – to an end. There is surely a federal obligation to the people of Swain County, North Carolina, but the U.S. Supreme Court has said there is no legal requirement to satisfy it by building this road. Common sense, as the elected Swain County Commissioners and the governors of Tennessee and North Carolina have said, suggests a cash settlement instead.

Obama Concedes To Clinton Machine, Now Running For Vice-President (Update Myabe Not)

Posted by Thunder Pig on January 15, 2008

Here are some explosive observations you should read:

Barack Obama conceded the Democratic Party presidential nomination today to Hillary Clinton. Most of the media, including all of conservative media, missed it out of ignorance. Parts of the MSM didn’t miss it, but, given their complicity with the Democratic Party, refused to report it.

isn’t that the Legacy Media modus operandi? [SNIP]

Obama, too, indicated he wants a truce, saying at a media availability in Reno, Nev., that the campaign “shouldn’t be personal.”

“Bill and Hillary Clinton have historically and consistently been on the right side of the civil rights movement,” Obama said.

Obama also said he didn’t want the campaign “to degenerate into so much tit-for-tat, back and forth that we lose sight of why all of us are doing this.”

IT, shouldn’t be personal, Barack? What does civil rights support have to do with IT? The campaign has already degenerated into tit for tat.

Hillary & Co. have relentlessly bitch-slapped the guy as a possible drug dealing, shuck and jiving, mere speech giving empty suit, fairy tale telling Muslim spade, worker. And he says nothing.

Obama effectively is running for Vice-President now. He won’t win that race either, and it has nothing to do with anything mentioned above.

There you have it. Obama has given up. [SNIP]

You see, the modern day Democratic Party was built on “hits” that create victims, dependant on them for their self worth, or lack thereof, and subsistence existence in the Welfare State.

Johnson pointed to Obama’s book which described the fraudulent manipulation of the ignorant poor and mostly black in detail for all the world to see. It would be as if A.Q. Khan were alowed to publish a book on how to make a nuclear weapon, for convincing people they can’t make it in evil America without their Big Government help is the Dems’ nuke.

Clinton Inc. may have made an offer to Obama he couldn’t refuse, with the stick of certain personal destruction politics and the carrot of a possible VP slot, but the Dems MUST do all they can to distract ALL attention from the chapters of Obama’s book that reveal their vile modus operandi.

So, Barack will be relegated to a sideshow, as all Blacks in the Dem Party are ultimately resigned. Oh, they get “seats at the [Dem] table, but never, NEVER, the head seat.

And I’ll just bet 99% of Obama Supporters will never know that their candidate gave up after just two states to the Democrat Establishment.

update 8.10 am Jim Quinn has a different take on the whole episode, and breaks it down according to Alinsky jujitsu. I am editing the audio and will have it available by 8.45am once I take the commercials out. Ugghh! This is gonna take longer than I thought. My MP3 player clipped the audio pretty bad in some spots, I think it is damaged too badly to repair. I’ll try to take notes on a re-listen by tomorrow. [TP]

Liberals Love John McCain

Posted by Thunder Pig on January 15, 2008

Never get between John McCain and a camera. He will run you over to get in front of it.

Here are some libs loving on a McCain GOP Nomination:

Republican voters are clearly fascinated by the novelty and inspiration of Governor Huckabee’s plain-spoken, faith-based messages. But in the final analysis, Senator McCain is a better fit of the traditional Eisenhower-Reagan conservative values of most Republican voters over the last half-century.

One prediction: If the nominees end up to be Senator Clinton and Senator McCain, it should be one of the highest level presidential campaigns waged in U.S. history. They are both personal friends. They both respect each other. Both have been on the vicious receiving ends of the politics of personal destruction. And both believe it is possible, indeed imperative, to debate the issues and to disagree agreeably.

And in the Politico:

In short, McCain is getting a free pass, and it’s beginning to show. In campaign events across western Michigan, voters are once again being reminded of the qualities of character that have made him an admired figure on the national political scene, without the distraction of ads designed to muddy that image.

Asked why she likes McCain, Tina Wolfis of Kalamazoo pointed to “his honesty, his straight-forwardness.”

Other voters, Republicans all, cited similar qualities. Pressed about issues, some mentioned federal spending or the war.

“He puts country ahead of politics,” added David Hassenger, a Republican official in St. Joseph County, just south of Kalamazoo. “[Republicans] deserved to have their asses kicked in the last election. … We’ve forgotten what we were supposed to be doing there.”

Source: Jonathan Martin, writing in the Politico (see his record)


Both are puff pieces, one from an liberal at the HuffPo, who can’t be blamed for pimping a RINO the GOP base will reject if nominated, giving the election to the candidate of his party.

Jonathan Martin is more of a puzzle, having come from the National Review. Perhaps he is a RINO as well.

What neither writer addresses is the very high negativity of John McCain. I believe his negatives may be as high as Hillary Clinton’s are, certainly within the ranks of conservatives who hate him for his support of amnesty, the quelling of free speech, the strangulation of businesses, and his political assassination of the beloved Rummy.
The anti-American war protestors (and Ron Paul Supporters) hate him because of his support for the surge, which he claims to have inspired, and the progressives hate him for his friendship with Joe Lieberman.

I view a McCain Presidency as potentially as disastrous to America as a Ron Paul Presidency. The former would destroy us with his domestic policies, and the later would destroy us with his foreign policy. And neither possess the skills to get the other side of their policy through Congress.

No, John McCain would be a disaster for the Conservative Movement, and America. He served our nation well in a time of war, and has since chosen the path of evil.
