Obama’s Prayer Approved For Publication

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 29, 2008

A Ma’ariv spokesman was quoted in the Jerusalem Post as saying that “Barack Obama’s note was approved for publication in the international media even before he put in the Kotel, a short time after he wrote it at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem.” The paper added that is was “pleased” with its “journalistic accomplishment.”

The campaign might be less pleased with another pronouncement by Maariv: “In any case,” the spokesman said, “since Obama is not a Jew, publishing the note does not constitute an infringement on his right to privacy.

Commentary

The prayer should not have been published. I know I would not have allowed my prayer to be published, and the very fact that Obama’s Campaign had copies of the prayer to hand out to media outlets mocks the nature of man’s relationship to God:


[Update as to Maariv’s statement as published in Haaretz on July 28: “Obama’s note was published in Maariv and other international publications following his authorization to make the content of the note public. Obama submitted a copy of the note to media outlets when he left his hotel in Jerusalem.”]

This stinks of a cynical manipulation of the media on a scale that reminds of one other:

It’s something to think about.

HuffPo Tries To Soften The Blow For Edwards By Asking "Could Infidelity Save Your Marriage?"

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 28, 2008

And then, for the first time in 10 years, I silenced it. As Alex placed his hands on my hips, I knew with absolute clarity that I was about to have an affair. I knew it was a decision that could unravel even the strongest of unions. I never could have guessed that it would save mine.

I had felt this kind of passion only once before, when I first encountered the man who would be my husband. I was wandering my college campus, terrified, when a gorgeous man walked confidently up the hill. He saw me, and asked if he could help me find my way. “Well, yes,” I wanted to respond. “How about for forever? Does forever work for you?”

Commentary
This is indeed sickening at how these lefties will excuse any crime committed by their heroes. I still remember how the Legacy Media published several stories with the same bent when Clinton got caught, and how they would wax eloquent on the beauty of telling lies, and how Great Men had a different set of needs than the rest of us poor peasants.
I think it is very funny that John Edwards (who they held up as a hero who stood by his woman during a life-threatening bout with breast cancer) was sleeping with another woman while his wife was fighting for her life, even fathering a bastard child. Yes, I know the “Politically Correct” term is love child. I just can’t help seeing Elizabeth Edwards fighting for her life while John Edwards was catting around just like Bill Clinton.
It is a hypocrsiy as delicious as the hypocrisy of “Green Guru” Al Gore with a Carbon Footprint the size of a mid-sized town!
**update** 7.05 AM
When I was checkingout the headlines on Yahoo! News, there was an article with the title Expert advice on surviving the aftermath of an affair. Am i reading too much into this?

Is Snopes in the Tank for Obama?

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 26, 2008

Ever wonder if something silly that came in the mail is true or not? If you have, you may have headed right on over to Snopes.Com to check it out. See if it was valid. See if it was a hoax. You trusted the trusty debunking of email myth by the Snopes.Com tribe. Well, you now have to be careful what you believe from Snopes.Com.

Obama wound up canceling a trip to visit wounded soldiers in Germany when he learned he could only do it in his official capacity as a Senator and he could not bring along his blabbering, loving horde of media. He worked out instead during that time. A fact.

But now, the ‘Progressive Regressive Immature Children of the Scorn’ PRICS are quoting a Snopes.Com article to say a ‘blow off’ isn’t so.

Never mind the topic. For that matter, never mind the country. To PRICS, context has a way of just getting in the way. After the PRICS have changed the context to match the topic (a favorite pastime for them, otherwise known as ‘spin’, perpetrated by SPIN PRICS) they are proceeding to act as if it matters, which is how SPIN PRICS manage to justify themselves.

We have Snopes.Com accepting an email forwarded from one of the Democratic Underground SPIN PRICS, writing up a nice ‘debunking’, and the SPIN PRICS grab it as if it was real, to point out how ‘Obama never did ‘blow off’ soldiers. Very few of them bother to notice it was in Afghanistan, and the context in the news is Germany, of if they do, it doesn’t matter.

To determine whether Snopes.Com is in the bag for Obama, just take a look at their items. Look at ‘The Natural’ from an email in July 23, 2008 an old topic, just now being reviewed? Or how about July 9, 2008’s ‘Campaign Contributions’ a false article gave Snopes.Com the opportunity to push the Obama line. “57 States” is not only true, it is true more than once, but instead of stating whether it is true or not, Snopes.Com gives excuses for Obama, he was tired. 57 and one more to go, and he was tired.

Commentary

If this is true, it would ruin the reputation of Snopes. Of course, it would lend credence to the whole Obamessiah meme.

I have inquired as to the disposition of this…let’s see if I hear anything back.

TIME Magazine: "We Love High Gas Prices!"

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 17, 2008

I kid you not, and they prove it by coming up with an article entitled Ten Things You Can Like About $4 Gas.

Here are their ten things (read the article for their excuses):

  1. Globalized Jobs Return Home
  2. Sprawl Stalls
  3. Four-Day Workweeks
  4. Less Pollution
  5. More Frugality
  6. Fewer Traffic Deaths
  7. Cheaper Insurance
  8. Less Traffic
  9. More Cops On The Beat
  10. Less Obesity


ObaMarx Campaign Logo

All these things add up to one thing, the TIME is in the tank for the Democrats, and the Democrat goal of controlling every aspect of your lives. Remember how the Legacy Media strated running stories about how good it was to lie, and the benefits that came from lying when it became apparent to all that Bill Clinton was lying about Monica Lewinsky?

This is the same sort of thing. Expect future articles on how sitting down with muggers over a cup of coffee is good for you and the mugger, and how Obama bin Laden is just a misunderstood Freedom Fighter who should be invited to sit down with President Barack Osama to “find common ground”. (Yes, I really wrote an intentional Spoonerism).

Obama Birth Certificate Shenanigans?

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 1, 2008

The Birth Certificate supplied by Barack Obama is not a Certified Copy. More on this:

“That strongly suggests that Daily Kos obtained the image from Photobucket, not the State of Hawaii, the Obama family, or the Obama campaign. Photobucket is not generally known as a credible supplier of official vital records for any of the fifty states, and the liberties that other Photoshoppers took with the certificates confirms this.

“Some of these oddities surfaced in Israel Insider’s previous article on the subject, but new comparative documentary evidence presented below, and official verification obtained by Israel Insider from a senior Hawaiian official, provides the strongest confirmation yet.

“An authentic Hawaiian birth certificate for another Hawaiian individual has since surfaced which, using the same official form as the presumptive Obama certificate, includes an embossed official seal and an authoritative signature, coming through from the back. Obama’s alleged certificate lacks those features, and the certificate number referencing the birth year has been blacked out, making it untraceable.

”Janice Okubo, Director of Communications of the State of Hawaii Department of Health, told Israel Insider: “At this time there are no circumstances in which the State of Hawaii Department of Health would issue a birth certification or certification of live birth only electronically.” And, she added, “In the State of Hawaii all certified copies of certificates of live birth have the embossed seal and registrar signature on the back of the document.”

–==SNIP==–

Research has since uncovered the law, in force at the time of Obama’s birth, that were he to have been born in another country, his young American mother’s youth extended time abroad would not suffice to make him a “natural born citizen.” Even if he were naturalized later — and there is no evidence that he was — he would not be eligible to run for the office of president and — if forgery or misrepresentation were involved — he and his staffers might find themselves facing stiff federal and state charges.

Hat Tip: Quinn & Rose

Commentary

This could just be a case of extreme incompetence on the part of Obama’s staff. There could also be other reasons for the cover up. Obama’s out of wedlock birth could have resulted in the father’s name being left out due to uncertainty who the father was, or he could have been listed as an Arab or Muslim, or may not be listed as Barack Obama, Sr.

If Obama was born outside the USA, according to laws in effect at the time of his birth, he would not be a natural born citizen andhe would be ineligible to be President due to his mother’s extended time abroad prior to his birth.

My chief suspicion is that it may be either extreme incompetence on Obama’s staff or to cover up embarrasing information on the Birth Certificate. Just like in Nixon’s case, the cover up becomes a greater crime than any actual crimes committed.

This would also be quite revealing about the character of Barack Obama.

I also note that Hillary Clinton is technically still in the race…for those of us who were involved in situations in Arkansas in the 1980’s…we remember that the Clintons have returned from the dead before… (cue spooky music)

Crunching The Numbers On 527’s: Exposing Barack Obama’s Lie

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 30, 2008

To hear Barack Obama speak you’d think he is gonna be overwhelmed by a folld of Republican 527’s this fall. Methinks the guilty dog is barking first:

Before the conventions in 2004, 527’s had raised $189.1 million, with Conservative groups raising $43.8 million and Liberal groups raising $132.6 million. The Liberals out raised Conservatives 3 to 1.

Now, the 527’s have raised $207.8 million, with Conservative groups raising $68.4 million and Liberal groups raising $116.4 million. The Liberals out raised Conservatives 1.7 to 1.

I can see why Obama would be worried. If the Democrat 527’s can’t get a Democrat into the White House when they have a 3 to 1 advantage in money…they might have a problem doing it at 1.7 to 1…unless they really over work those ACORN people and increase their fraudulent voter registrations to unheard of levels.

Source for figures: Center for Responsive Politics.

So, when you hear Barack Obama, or any Democrat, speak of the Republican attack machine…you will be armed with figures that will show them that they have been told a lie, and are repeating it.

Lefties Realize Olberman, Obama Were Faking It On FISA

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 27, 2008

Keith Olbermann on FISA earlier this year…he was against it before he was for it!

On January 31 of this year, Keith Olbermann donned his most serious face and most indignant voice tone to rail against George Bush for supporting telecom immunity and revisions to FISA. In a 10-minute “Special Comment,” the MSNBC star condemned Bush for wanting to “retroactively immunize corporate criminals,” and said that telecom immnity is “an ex post facto law, which would clear the phone giants from responsibility for their systematic, aggressive and blatant collaboration with [Bush’s] illegal and unjustified spying on Americans under this flimsy guise of looking for any terrorists who are stupid enough to make a collect call or send a mass email.”

Olbermann added that telecom amnesty was a “shameless, breathless, literally textbook example of Fascism — the merged efforts of government and corporations that answer to no government.”


Source: Glenn Greenwald

And, when confronted with Obama’s acceptance of FISA, Olberman reveals his true colors:

Last night, Olbermann invited Newsweek‘s Jonathan Alter onto his show to discuss Obama’s support for the FISA and telecom amnesty bill (video of the segment is here). There wasn’t a syllable uttered about “immunizing corporate criminals” or “textbook examples of Fascism” or the Third Reich. There wasn’t a word of rational criticism of the bill either. Instead, the two media stars jointly hailed Obama’s bravery and strength — as evidenced by his “standing up to the left” in order to support this important centrist FISA compromise:

<

Now this is too funny!!!

Will the lefties keep on drinking the Obama Koolaid as Olberman has done?

Obama was against immunity before he was for it.


**update** 11.20 AM


Olberman has fired back at Greenwald over at KKKos Kidz.

Senator Elizabeth Dole Responds To Lefty Attacks On Her Husband

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 20, 2008

Over the last few months, a few people in North Carolina have asked about the petty attacks my opponent has leveled against me during this campaign. The thing they mention most often has been the consistent focus on my husband Bob.

As you all know, my dear husband is not only the former Senator and Republican Leader from the state of Kansas, but also a cancer survivor and WWII hero. To say that I am proud of my husband’s many accomplishments and service to his country would be an incredible understatement.

Since Bob’s service in the Senate he’s worked with President Clinton on funding for scholarships for the families of 9/11 victims and raised money for historically black Bennett College in Greensboro. He’s teamed with George McGovern to feed the hungry throughout the world, spearheaded the effort to raise money for the WWII Memorial on the Mall in Washington and served with Donna Shalala on the President’s Commission on Care for America’s Returning Wounded Warriors. He has truly touched the lives of the many thousands of Veterans with whom he visits in hospitals throughout the country.

This week an article titled “Hagan hits Dole for husband’s background” said “U.S. Senate candidate Kay Hagan is mocking her opponent’s background, telling incumbent Sen. Elizabeth Dole to go back to her husband’s state.”

The article also described local campaign parties where Hagan supporters will decorate ruby red slippers in a reference to “The Wizard of Oz” and Bob’s home state of Kansas.

But the attack against Bob that has troubled me the most came from her press release of April 25th. It attacked me for giving a floor speech commemorating my husband’s service. The Hagan campaign release claimed I was “interrupting consideration of the transportation bill to make a floor speech commemorating her husband’s first floor speech 39 years before.”

The Senate was in a period of “morning business” which allows Senators to speak about various issues and topics. My speech commemorating Bob’s service and the service of all veterans was on the anniversary of Bob’s injuries sustained on the battlefield during WWII. Bob spent 39 months in hospitals undergoing eight surgeries and rehabilitation, but lost the use of his right arm.

There was an important reason to commemorate Bob’s so called maiden speech, because it highlights the struggle of a group that Bob joined that fateful day, April 14, 1945, called Americans with Disabilities. The fact that he chose to talk about it is important. It was an opportunity for all of those in the U.S. Senate to think about disabilities and how they affect all Americans, not just people who undergo the kind of daily struggle that Bob faces. A day that a candidate for the Senate would want to mute a voice highlighting the struggle of these Americans is a sad one. As your Senator, I plan to take every opportunity to do what Bob did, which is to make certain that voice is heard.

An early encounter with my late mother best describes my husband and his experience. One morning he left his bedroom and went down to the kitchen in Salisbury where my mother was fixing breakfast. He had a towel draped over his shoulder.

“Mrs. Hanford,” he said, “I think you should see my problem.”Bob, that’s not as problem, it’s a badge of honor,” mother replied.

I believe the voters of North Carolina will be better served if my opponent spent her time and resources on the challenges we face as a state and nation – rather than launching personal attacks at a man who has served this nation so honorably.

Commentary

Well, that sort of thing is to be expected from the hate-filled lefties. They want Liddy’s seat, and they don’t care how they do it.

Fortunately for us, Senator Dole is a fighter and she will keep her seat in order to continue fighting for us in the US Senate.


I had the privilege of meeting her earlier this year in Asheville, and watching her in action. I am confident that the people of North Carolina will send her back to Washington for six more years.

Hypocrisy and Lefty Bloggers

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 10, 2008

I get a kick out out lefty bloggers, especially the Marxists who would put the government in control of every aspect of our lives until every drop of liberty was squeezed out.

An example:


– I saw three people roll up to a wedding this weekend in their H2. They drove it from Atlanta. I’m not sure if it occurred to them that they were consuming irresponsibly.

Source: Scrutiny Hooligans

Like most lefties, it never occurs to them that liberty involves the freedom to act irresponsibly…except that these people did not act responsibly, and had less of an effect on the environment than most people who cannot afford a Hummer.

That is how the Free Market works, people drive what they can afford. My old chevy 1987 pickup gets 6 miles to the gallon and has no emission control devices. It cost me $200. That should get more of his self-righteous ire than the H2’s (which get better fuel mileage than any of my vehicles), and there are probably ten thousand pickups like mine to every H2 out there on the road.

And my 1997 Ford diesel pickup gets only 12 mpg (it drops down to 7-8 when I haul trailers around loaded with equipment), and it is not subject to passing emission tests like my other truck. Models like that are also more numerous than the H2.

The H2 represents class envy for those on the left. At least the H2 can carry 6 people, my Chvy only carries 2, and my diesel only carries 4 max. Plus, the H2 is far more environmentally friendly in its emission control than most of the older vehicles on the road.

The lefty goes on to complain about the spelling of people on the forums of the regional paper, which leads me to ask, “What is it with lefties and spelling?” Why are they such spelling and grammar Nazis? Do they not realize that what they are complaining about is a direct result of their much-loved public education system? A system that is increasingly teaching children more about multiculturalism than about spelling. A system that is teaching a system of false tolerance for any belief except Christianity and conservatism?

Don’t you think it odd that a parent with an 8th grade education can homeschool their children to outspell 99% of children taught in the public education system, and for less money per pupil?

I could go on and on, but will restrict myself to one more topic, and I have saved the best for last.

Yesterday, that blogger came over here and berated me in the comments about convicting Obama with “guilt by association” posts. (His blog is woven with that thread through and through).

I didn’t have to wait long for him to post another…less than 24 hours later, he goes and does what he was irate about me doing. Hypocrisy, where is thy sting? The dichotomy is delicious, and shows a level of intellectual dishonesty that would make for a comedic character study if presented on stage, film, or even in a weekly sitcom.

The dichotomy comes from him calling it wrong for me to point out the Foul Deeds committed by the many Associates of Barack Obama, but fairplay when it comes to pointing out the Foul Deeds of those associated with Bush, Cheney, or anyone else he chooses. I believe that there is much to be learned from one’s associates, whether it work out to suit my ideological beliefs or not.

This Campaign Season will be very fun from the standpoint of watching all the lefty chickens coming home to roost.

I predict that Emperor Obama will have no clothes at the end of this election, and it is my hope that the takedown of Obama will cause irreparable harm to progressivism in this Republic.

Another Obama Lie: Claims His Uncle Liberated Auschwitz

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 27, 2008

Hat Tip: Rezko Watch

By the way, for those of you who don’t know…the Soviets liberated Auschwitz.
So, unless Obama’s KGB Controller is code-named “uncle” Obama told a lie.

I wonder if the Obama-loving Media will report this as breathlessly as they did Clinton’s lies. Me neither. Lemme see, they ignored the Obamamessiah claiming he had visited 57 states, or the error he made in thinking he saw dead people.

Obama really is just an empty suit.
