Prayers for Rush

It was reported to have been rushed to the hospital in Hawaii with chest pains. HT TMZ here:
Rush Limbaugh has been hospitalized in Hawaii after suffering chest pains -- this according to KITV Hawaii.

According to KITV, paramedics responded to a call at the Kahala Hotel in Honolulu at 2:41 PM and transported Rush to Queens Medical Center.

According to the report, Rush was in "serious condition" when he arrived to the hospital.

Attempts to reach a rep for Limbaugh were unsuccessful.

The man is such a great conservative and a great talk host. I listen to him every day. When I got layed off from my job back in 2002 listening to him kept me sane. God Bless Rush. Lord hold him close and guide him back to us. Amen.

Taking Christ away from the Holiday

Here is a great article by Chuck Norris At World Net Daily called "Away with the Manger," here:
Even in Obama's superstar Christmas interviews with Oprah and Gloria Estefan, there were discussions about Santa, Christmas trees, ornaments, gingerbread houses and even their dog's Christmas stocking. Obama even gave a Christmas shout-out to all Hispanics. But there was not one discussion of religion or a hint of the real reason for the season.

Gone are the days when presidents and most politicians publicly rejoice in the birth of Christ.

Another blog shows the orniments on one of the White House Christmas Trees has a face of Chariman Mao! Here at World Net Daily:

Merry Christmas!

Andy is a tight wad.

After all the hupla Andrew Sullivan had on Sarah Palin and her special needs son Trig, here is his dish on Sarah's book, "Going Rouge," here:

When dealing with a delusional fantasist like Sarah Palin, it takes time to absorb and make sense of the various competing narratives that she tells about her life. There are so many fabrications and delusions in the book, mixed in with facts, that just making sense of it - and comparing it with objective reality as we know it, and the subjective reality she has previously provided - is a bewildering task. She is a deeply disturbed person which makes this work of fiction and fact all the more challenging to read. And the fact that she is now the leader of the Republican party and a potential presidential candidate, makes this process of deconstruction an important civil responsibility. We take this seriously as we always have. We want to be fair to her, and to her family, and to the innocent people she has brought into the spotlight. And we are not reporters. We are merely analysts trying to make sense of evidence already in the public domain, evidence that points in all sorts of directions, only one of which can be true.

Andrew, you are delusional. Why don't you list the delusions and relate each fact that was a lie. I don't think you can because Sarah is real (Which you can't stand) and she is telling the truth. Get a hold of yourself. Get Real. If you have the facts please let us know. Because if you don't YOU are the one having Delusions. Creep.

Obambi teabagging pitch

“Does anybody think that the teabag, anti-government people are going to support them if they bring down health care? All it will do is confuse and dispirit” Democratic voters “and it will encourage the extremists.”

From NYT here.

Sounds like Axlerod's words to me. Make it sound as the Extremists are anti-HCR. We are not anti-government but PRO-Constitution. We love our COUNTRY. It does not mean we have to love THE GOVERNMENT! The USA has the best Health Care in the world. Why change it to stop innovation, kill jobs, increase taxes and ration care?

Psalm 112

Hallelujah! Happy are those who fear the LORD, who greatly delight in God's commands.
Their descendants shall be mighty in the land, generation upright and blessed.

They shine through the darkness, a light for the upright; they are gracious, merciful, and just.
All goes well for those gracious in lending, who conduct their affairs with justice.

Lavishly they give to the poor; their prosperity shall endure forever; their horn shall be exalted in honor.

The Hutch Calls Rush

I listen to Rush on a daily basis. I love to listen to him. And he has never said a RACIST comment ever! The left is proving that the War against Conservatism is on all fronts. They want to take over every thing in America, even the NFL! Even the Hutch is mad! And he is a Man of the Cloth!
From Rush's site here:
THE HUTCH: Hey, my man. I am so mad, I am doing back flips up here in Seattle. What in the world is going on in the United States? I mean, the whole issue, Rush -- whether you like it or not -- is they have done you wrong. And this is intolerance, it's prejudice, and if America don't wake up, it is going to happen to them. I am so mad, man, I cannot even -- and I'm a man of the cloth, Rush! I'm not supposed to get this upset. It is time for all of us... You know, why don't they talk to some African-Americans that know you?

The Hutch goes on to talk about the "poverty pimps", Sharpton and Jackson, (Rush calls the "Justice Brothers"):
....they're nothing but slave sliders and pushers to get their way. And you're going to let them have a voice on all the stuff that they've done? Jesse Jackson was telling Bush to, "Stay out of the bushes." He was the one in the bushes having illegitimate kids!

The Hutch should know he too is a "Man of the Cloth" just like the Rev. Jackson. However, the Rev. Jackson is a hypocrite and has not repented on his 'sins'. I hope the Hutch calls back for Rush's show today.

What Harry Hays said in 1983 about boys/men

From "When Nancy Met Harry" American Spectator by Jeffery Lord dated 10/5/2006 here:

Harry Hay was a fierce advocate of man/boy love. While The Chronicle simply ignored Harry's views, the North American Man/Boy Love Association was only too delighted to put up a collection of Harry's views on the need for young boys to have older men as sexual partners. Here's just a sample taken from a talk at a New York University forum sponsored by a campus gay group in 1983.

Said Harry: "Because if the parents and friends of gays are truly friends of gays, they would know from their gay kids that the relationship with an older man is precisely what thirteen-, fourteen-, and fifteen-year-old kids need more than anything else in the world."

I don't have boys but girls. I would not want my child to have any sexual relationship with any one at that age, even with an older person. Doesn't matter what sex they are. Kids need their parents guidance not the advice of an older adult that wants to have sex with them! HT Michelle Malkin

Rio (Official Video) Duran Duran

Got to get it!

The Muppet Show - I Go to Rio

Oh So Happy today!

I am glad that Chicago lost the 2016 Olympics bid. Why did Obama think that going over to Copenhagen would get the bid? I think the world saw though the Ego. The video of the violent beating of the Chicago teenager by a rail road tie did not help. I'm glad that the Union and corrupt Daily machine won't get any money. Obama's advisor Valarie Jarret won't get any money for replacing her run down properties. I am a bit sad the US did not win, but glad the corruption machine in Chicago did not. So It is a victory for conservatives and I hope the GOP runs with this to uncover the corruption of Obama.

Tea Party de-bunking

I used to frequent LGF and considered myself a lizard at one time. But I would comment and get dinged all the time. I felt I never really fit in. But I liked LittleOldLady. She no longer comments on Little Green Footballs. (suspended accounts) What happened? Now Charles has other lizards watch his back while he sleeps at night. Any one who does "Flounce" (Giving a comment about leaving LGF for good.) are deleted and account suspended. I will not flounce just yet. It's his site and he can do what he wants. I won't go there much anymore.

Anyway I bring this up because LGF is trying to De-bunk the DC TeaParty on 9/12. He is cherry picking the pictures and showing the Nazi signs and Racist signs that were the Capitol protest. I was at the July 4th Tea Party in Ventura County. Yes there were some signs like that but the Majority I saw were civil and not racist. I think if look you will find it. I even saw 'Furry People' (wearing Ears and tails!) at the Ventura County rally. And The Ron Pauls handing out "Get out of the FED" flyer's.

Thanks to Joe Wilson! WH is running scared!

From Red State here:
In other words, as the federal exchange takes hold, plans not complying with the federal government’s standards will start to disappear. Eventually, it won’t make any sense for any company to offer health insurance as the federal requirements will make the business of providing health insurance far too expensive, and the premiums far too expensive for the insured.

The result will be that everyone will wind up with no other “choice” than the so-called public option, just as the Administration has planned all along. It took Wilson “calling out” the president’s “misinformation” and “lies” to finally get the Administration to admit it.

Joe Wilson was right to call the President on the lies he is telling us about Health Care Reform. We need to fight this all the way. Our freedom of choice will be taken away. I'm glad someone with BALLS finally did it. With the 9/12 rally on DC going on today (CNN est. 2 million!) WE THE PEOPLE are gaining momentum. And the Constitution backs US all the way! God Bless America!

Liar, Liar, Pants on fire!

Here are the 7 major 1/2 truths or lies Obama said in his speech to both houses on HC:

1. “I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits either now or in the future. Period.”
2. “Nothing in this plan will require you or your employer to change the coverage or the doctor you have.”
3. “The reforms I’m proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally.” (One congressman, South Carolina Republican Joe Wilson, shouted “You lie!” from his seat in the House chamber when Obama made this assertion).
4. “Don’t pay attention to those scary stories about how your benefits will be cut. … That will never happen on my watch. I will protect Medicare.”
5. Requiring insurance companies to cover preventive care like mammograms and colonoscopies “makes sense, it saves money, and it saves lives.”
6. “If you lose your job or change your job, you will be able to get coverage. If you strike out on your own and start a small business, you will be able to get coverage.”
7. “There are now more than 30 million American citizens who cannot get coverage.”

Van Jones did not fill out WH questionare

From Major Garrett over at Row 2 Seat 4:
Van Jones, the Obama green jobs czar who resigned shortly after midnight Sunday, did not fill out the exhaustive questionnaire White House officials required of every Cabinet-level secretary and deputy-secretary position.

An administration official said special advisers to the president, or czars, are not required to fill out the questionnaire that runs 7 pages and contains 63 questions.

The entire questionnaire, the official said, is reserved for appointees who must win Senate confirmation.

Quiting your country

From Obama's School Speech:
And this isn’t just important for your own life and your own future. What you make of your education will decide nothing less than the future of this country. What you’re learning in school today will determine whether we as a nation can meet our greatest challenges in the future.
You’ll need the knowledge and problem-solving skills you learn in science and math to cure diseases like cancer and AIDS, and to develop new energy technologies and protect our environment. You’ll need the insights and critical thinking skills you gain in history and social studies to fight poverty and homelessness, crime and discrimination, and make our nation more fair and more free. You’ll need the creativity and ingenuity you develop in all your classes to build new companies that will create new jobs and boost our economy.
We need every single one of you to develop your talents, skills and intellect so you can help solve our most difficult problems. If you don’t do that – if you quit on school – you’re not just quitting on yourself, you’re quitting on your country.

My question is what if your school is failing. Quiting that school and going to a better school might be a good idea. Especially if it is a failing public school.
I disagree with the president. If you quit school you are not quiting your country. Maybe your parents will change schools. I did for my kids when they failed at our local school. I transferred to a better school. The kids did better. Sometimes you drop out of school and go to work. You can always re-enter adult school and finish the High School degree at a later time. I do agree with the President that you shouldn't quit school but work harder. But you are not quitting on America if you drop out of school. There are alternatives to public schools and maybe another path must be found for the student in order to succeed.

Valerie Jarrett's role in Van Jones Hire

From Redstate here:
In fact, I’m being told that Valerie Jarrett overruled objections raised by the White House Counsel’s Office and insisted Van Jones be put in that spot. Jarrett has been a cheerleader of Jones for a while, as has Michelle Obama. Specifically, I’m told the Counsel’s Office raised objections to Jones based on Jones’ past activities and associations, including with a 9/11 Truther organization. Jarrett overruled them and Jones in his job.

Really? Jarrett overruled WH Counsel's objections to Van Jones hiring. WoW! I wonder if she'll be the next to go? Just a thought.
Update From Accuracy in Media: The blogger who first brought up Van Jones as a communist is Trevor Loudon of New Zealand. His blog is here.

The President's Speech to School Kids (text)

Back to School Event

Arlington, Virginia

September 8, 2009

The President: Hello everyone - how’s everybody doing today? I’m here with students at Wakefield High School in Arlington, Virginia. And we’ve got students tuning in from all across America, kindergarten through twelfth grade. I’m glad you all could join us today.

I know that for many of you, today is the first day of school. And for those of you in kindergarten, or starting middle or high school, it’s your first day in a new school, so it’s understandable if you’re a little nervous. I imagine there are some seniors out there who are feeling pretty good right now, with just one more year to go. And no matter what grade you’re in, some of you are probably wishing it were still summer, and you could’ve stayed in bed just a little longer this morning.

I know that feeling. When I was young, my family lived in Indonesia for a few years, and my mother didn’t have the money to send me where all the American kids went to school. So she decided to teach me extra lessons herself, Monday through Friday - at 4:30 in the morning.

Now I wasn’t too happy about getting up that early. A lot of times, I’d fall asleep right there at the kitchen table. But whenever I’d complain, my mother would just give me one of those looks and say, "This is no picnic for me either, buster."

So I know some of you are still adjusting to being back at school. But I’m here today because I have something important to discuss with you. I’m here because I want to talk with you about your education and what’s expected of all of you in this new school year.

Now I’ve given a lot of speeches about education. And I’ve talked a lot about responsibility.

I’ve talked about your teachers’ responsibility for inspiring you, and pushing you to learn.

I’ve talked about your parents’ responsibility for making sure you stay on track, and get your homework done, and don’t spend every waking hour in front of the TV or with that Xbox.

I’ve talked a lot about your government’s responsibility for setting high standards, supporting teachers and principals, and turning around schools that aren’t working where students aren’t getting the opportunities they deserve.

But at the end of the day, we can have the most dedicated teachers, the most supportive parents, and the best schools in the world - and none of it will matter unless all of you fulfill your responsibilities. Unless you show up to those schools; pay attention to those teachers; listen to your parents, grandparents and other adults; and put in the hard work it takes to succeed.

And that’s what I want to focus on today: the responsibility each of you has for your education. I want to start with the responsibility you have to yourself.

Every single one of you has something you’re good at. Every single one of you has something to offer. And you have a responsibility to yourself to discover what that is. That’s the opportunity an education can provide.

Maybe you could be a good writer - maybe even good enough to write a book or articles in a newspaper - but you might not know it until you write a paper for your English class. Maybe you could be an innovator or an inventor - maybe even good enough to come up with the next iPhone or a new medicine or vaccine - but you might not know it until you do a project for your science class. Maybe you could be a mayor or a Senator or a Supreme Court Justice, but you might not know that until you join student government or the debate team.

And no matter what you want to do with your life - I guarantee that you’ll need an education to do it. You want to be a doctor, or a teacher, or a police officer? You want to be a nurse or an architect, a lawyer or a member of our military? You’re going to need a good education for every single one of those careers. You can’t drop out of school and just drop into a good job. You’ve got to work for it and train for it and learn for it.

And this isn’t just important for your own life and your own future. What you make of your education will decide nothing less than the future of this country. What you’re learning in school today will determine whether we as a nation can meet our greatest challenges in the future.

You’ll need the knowledge and problem-solving skills you learn in science and math to cure diseases like cancer and AIDS, and to develop new energy technologies and protect our environment. You’ll need the insights and critical thinking skills you gain in history and social studies to fight poverty and homelessness, crime and discrimination, and make our nation more fair and more free. You’ll need the creativity and ingenuity you develop in all your classes to build new companies that will create new jobs and boost our economy.

We need every single one of you to develop your talents, skills and intellect so you can help solve our most difficult problems. If you don’t do that - if you quit on school - you’re not just quitting on yourself, you’re quitting on your country.

Now I know it’s not always easy to do well in school. I know a lot of you have challenges in your lives right now that can make it hard to focus on your schoolwork.

I get it. I know what that’s like. My father left my family when I was two years old, and I was raised by a single mother who struggled at times to pay the bills and wasn’t always able to give us things the other kids had. There were times when I missed having a father in my life. There were times when I was lonely and felt like I didn’t fit in.

So I wasn’t always as focused as I should have been. I did some things I’m not proud of, and got in more trouble than I should have. And my life could have easily taken a turn for the worse.

But I was fortunate. I got a lot of second chances and had the opportunity to go to college, and law school, and follow my dreams. My wife, our First Lady Michelle Obama, has a similar story. Neither of her parents had gone to college, and they didn’t have much. But they worked hard, and she worked hard, so that she could go to the best schools in this country.

Some of you might not have those advantages. Maybe you don’t have adults in your life who give you the support that you need. Maybe someone in your family has lost their job, and there’s not enough money to go around. Maybe you live in a neighborhood where you don’t feel safe, or have friends who are pressuring you to do things you know aren’t right.

But at the end of the day, the circumstances of your life - what you look like, where you come from, how much money you have, what you’ve got going on at home - that’s no excuse for neglecting your homework or having a bad attitude. That’s no excuse for talking back to your teacher, or cutting class, or dropping out of school. That’s no excuse for not trying.

Where you are right now doesn’t have to determine where you’ll end up. No one’s written your destiny for you. Here in America, you write your own destiny. You make your own future.

That’s what young people like you are doing every day, all across America.

Young people like Jazmin Perez, from Roma, Texas. Jazmin didn’t speak English when she first started school. Hardly anyone in her hometown went to college, and neither of her parents had gone either. But she worked hard, earned good grades, got a scholarship to Brown University, and is now in graduate school, studying public health, on her way to being Dr. Jazmin Perez.

I’m thinking about Andoni Schultz, from Los Altos, California, who’s fought brain cancer since he was three. He’s endured all sorts of treatments and surgeries, one of which affected his memory, so it took him much longer - hundreds of extra hours - to do his schoolwork. But he never fell behind, and he’s headed to college this fall.

And then there’s Shantell Steve, from my hometown of Chicago, Illinois. Even when bouncing from foster home to foster home in the toughest neighborhoods, she managed to get a job at a local health center; start a program to keep young people out of gangs; and she’s on track to graduate high school with honors and go on to college.

Jazmin, Andoni and Shantell aren’t any different from any of you. They faced challenges in their lives just like you do. But they refused to give up. They chose to take responsibility for their education and set goals for themselves. And I expect all of you to do the same.

That’s why today, I’m calling on each of you to set your own goals for your education - and to do everything you can to meet them. Your goal can be something as simple as doing all your homework, paying attention in class, or spending time each day reading a book. Maybe you’ll decide to get involved in an extracurricular activity, or volunteer in your community. Maybe you’ll decide to stand up for kids who are being teased or bullied because of who they are or how they look, because you believe, like I do, that all kids deserve a safe environment to study and learn. Maybe you’ll decide to take better care of yourself so you can be more ready to learn. And along those lines, I hope you’ll all wash your hands a lot, and stay home from school when you don’t feel well, so we can keep people from getting the flu this fall and winter.

Whatever you resolve to do, I want you to commit to it. I want you to really work at it.

I know that sometimes, you get the sense from TV that you can be rich and successful without any hard work -- that your ticket to success is through rapping or basketball or being a reality TV star, when chances are, you’re not going to be any of those things.

But the truth is, being successful is hard. You won’t love every subject you study. You won’t click with every teacher. Not every homework assignment will seem completely relevant to your life right this minute. And you won’t necessarily succeed at everything the first time you try.

That’s OK. Some of the most successful people in the world are the ones who’ve had the most failures. JK Rowling’s first Harry Potter book was rejected twelve times before it was finally published. Michael Jordan was cut from his high school basketball team, and he lost hundreds of games and missed thousands of shots during his career. But he once said, "I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed."

These people succeeded because they understand that you can’t let your failures define you - you have to let them teach you. You have to let them show you what to do differently next time. If you get in trouble, that doesn’t mean you’re a troublemaker, it means you need to try harder to behave. If you get a bad grade, that doesn’t mean you’re stupid, it just means you need to spend more time studying.

No one’s born being good at things, you become good at things through hard work. You’re not a varsity athlete the first time you play a new sport. You don’t hit every note the first time you sing a song. You’ve got to practice. It’s the same with your schoolwork. You might have to do a math problem a few times before you get it right, or read something a few times before you understand it, or do a few drafts of a paper before it’s good enough to hand in.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it. I do that every day. Asking for help isn’t a sign of weakness, it’s a sign of strength. It shows you have the courage to admit when you don’t know something, and to learn something new. So find an adult you trust - a parent, grandparent or teacher; a coach or counselor - and ask them to help you stay on track to meet your goals.

And even when you’re struggling, even when you’re discouraged, and you feel like other people have given up on you - don’t ever give up on yourself. Because when you give up on yourself, you give up on your country.

The story of America isn’t about people who quit when things got tough. It’s about people who kept going, who tried harder, who loved their country too much to do anything less than their best.

It’s the story of students who sat where you sit 250 years ago, and went on to wage a revolution and found this nation. Students who sat where you sit 75 years ago who overcame a Depression and won a world war; who fought for civil rights and put a man on the moon. Students who sat where you sit 20 years ago who founded Google, Twitter and Facebook and changed the way we communicate with each other.

So today, I want to ask you, what’s your contribution going to be? What problems are you going to solve? What discoveries will you make? What will a president who comes here in twenty or fifty or one hundred years say about what all of you did for this country?

Your families, your teachers, and I are doing everything we can to make sure you have the education you need to answer these questions. I’m working hard to fix up your classrooms and get you the books, equipment and computers you need to learn. But you’ve got to do your part too. So I expect you to get serious this year. I expect you to put your best effort into everything you do. I expect great things from each of you. So don’t let us down - don’t let your family or your country or yourself down. Make us all proud. I know you can do it.

Thank you, God bless you, and God bless America.

The Nation's School Speech

From Michelle Malkin's blog
Michelle says it is the sub-text of the speech that parents are worried about. From her blog here:
It’s not the speech, it’s the subtext.

It’s the radical activism of the White House Teaching Fellows who designed the education guides tied to Obama’s speech.

It’s the overzealousness of public school educators who have turned classrooms into Obama campaign offices.

It’s the influence of the left-wing social justice crusaders of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge on Team Obama.

It’s the Left’s embrace of Obama Chicago pal Bill Ayers’ pedagogical philosophy of “education as the motor-force of revolution.”

I'm waiting as the White house will release the text of the speech at 12 noon Eastern. (9 AM Pacific). When I first heard the word that Obama was going to speak to school kids I wanted to know the content and how it would be portrayed. I have a feeling it will be like a Bill Ayers type induction. Don't get me wrong but I just have this gut feeling. With the vetting of the Czars (or non-vetting) and Valarie's (Jarrett) influence Bill Ayers (and Bernardine's too) must have something to do with this Obama speech.

Another Czar--Cass Sunstien The Organ Harvester!

From Politico here:

Conservatives are holding up the confirmation for Cass Sumstien for the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.
One of their main lines of attack is that Sunstein supported taking people’s organs "against their will."

U.S. law assumes citizens opt-out of organ donation unless they specifically select it on their driver’s license, living will, or other legal documentation. In his 2008 book "Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness," Sunstein argues that changing to policy of "presumed consent" — assuming everyone is a donor unless they "easily register" not to be — would "save many lives while also preserving freedom."

His support for animal rights has also inflamed some conservatives. Sunstein has spoken in favor of allowing people to sue on behalf of animals in animal cruelty cases. And in a 2007 speech at Harvard, he advocated restricting animal testing, banning hunting and encouraging the public to eat less meat.

Those ideas have inflamed the hunting, fishing and agricultural lobbies and caused at least two Republicans to hold up his nomination, which has yet to be confirmed.

Talk about Organ Harvesting! What about contacting next of kin in case of death and donation of organs?

Now about another subject Sunstien brought up about hunting. Sarah Palin grew up to eating moose her father hunted. They did not live near a store or have "Fresh N Easy" around the corner. Even the Intuit (Eskimo) have to hunt to sustain their existence.

After Mark Lloyd the next to go is John Holdren

I want to give credit to Michelle Malkin and Zombie for informing me on the Science Czar John P Holdren. Last week the Science Czar was on David Letterman's show. Michelle has her top ten here.
From CNS here an article on John Holdren's "Ecoscience" text book.
"A massive campaign must be launched to restore a high-quality environment in North America and to de-develop the United States," Holdren wrote in a 1973 book he co-authored with Paul R. Ehrlch and Anne H. Ehrlich. "De-development means bringing our economic system (especially patterns of consumption) into line with the realities of ecology and the global resource situation."

In the vision expressed by Holdren and his co-authors, the Ehrlichs, the need for "de-development" of the United States demanded a redistribtuion of wealth.

Do I see a Socialism/Marxism? And there are more of these Czars surrounding the president. Throw them all out!

The next Czar to fall--Mark Lloyd

Mark Lloyd must go! Freedom of Speech must be protected! Lloyd wants to get rid of conservative talk radio and Fox News and replace it with local programing. Without Fox and Glenn Beck we would not have put Van Jones down. Bryon York's investigation on the MSM reporting of Van Jones (via Hugh Hewitt's producer Duane here:
From a Nexis search a few moments ago:

Total words about the Van Jones controversy in the New York Times: 0.

Total words about the Van Jones controversy on ABC World News: 0.
Total words about the Van Jones controversy on CBS Evening News: 0.

After the Jones controversy reached a boiling point on Friday, the Washington Post published a story, "White House Says Little on Embattled Jones," on page A-3 of its Saturday edition. But the New York Times remained silent on the story.

Likewise, on Friday night the "CBS Evening News" reported the Jones matter, but ABC's "World News" and "NBC Nightly News" again failed to report the story.

Inhofe's Town Hall Statement

Inhofe took the opportunity to blame Democrats for a bevy of issues. He lashed out at democrats for overtaking the government and spending billions of dollars on unpopular packages. He said government is becoming too big and overreaching its boundaries.

"People are not buying these concepts that are completely foreign to America," Inhofe said. "We're almost reaching a revolution in this country."

Many in the meeting agreed and were vocal about their disdain for the current climate in Washington.

"No more compromise," Chickasha resident Ed Hicks said. "We're losing our country."

Social Justice Kills Freedom

It is not just a question of what the government will pay for. The logic of their collectivist thinking — and the actual practice in some other countries with government-controlled health care — is that you cannot even pay for some medical treatments with your own money, if the powers that be decide that "society" cannot let its resources be used that way, or that it would not be "social justice" for some people to have medical treatments that others cannot get, just because some people "happen to have money."

From IBD Editorials here.

Social Justice kills freedom. I need freedom so my kids can function in society. They both suffer from Autism. Little is it understood by General Practice Physician and Pediatricians. A Developmental Pediatrician is what an Autistic child needs. Most insurance will not cover that specialist. Or they do but only have one specialist and you have to drive 20 to 30 miles to see that ONE specialist your kid is allowed to see. Under the government run health care it would be virtually impossible to get that specialized care. A child who is severely hyperactive needs Ritalin, Concerta or other stimulants to cope, survive and behave. Trust me, you don't know how much our family life and my child's life improved once we started the medication. The quality of life for my child greatly improved! Thank you Lord! So with Government health care I would not have the freedom to visit the specialist. Without freedom we are toast. Without freedom my family will be lost. My only hope is to keep that ONE doctor. Or my child will have to go to a home or institution because of her sever hyperactivity. I can't do it without the medication and treatment she so deservedly needs to be a part of the society. Social Justice Kills Freedom to choose the doctor you need in order to be a part of and interact with society.

Debunking Death Panels

I've been hammered by liberals on the HR 3200 End of Life sec. 1233. I have re-read it. An I still say the End of Life discussions is still decided by a panel of experts(?)who will ration care and tell you if you get treated or die. And Doctors are mandated to have this discussion every 5 years for those 65 and over. It is voluntary and the patient can decline. What I protest is the doctors are forced to have these consultations every five years and are paid for them. What does this do? It is the rationing of care.
He says every credible person agrees that there are no death panels mentioned in the bill. This is true that the exact words “death panels” are not used but a council is described that would make life and death decisions based on life expectancy vs. cost.

Bee Gees - Stayin' Alive (Full Version)

Government Health Care is going to fail. Private Ins. is Staying Alive!

Tuesday, August 18, 2009

I'm so hysterical I've lost my eyesite!

From the comments section:
You're so hysterical it's affected your eyesight. Re-read the section. The "Advanced Care Planning Consultation" is a conversation between an individual and their doctor about their own choices regarding end of life care. For instance, what sort of life saving measures does THE PATIENT want taken if they have terminal cancer and go into cardiac attest.

The only mandate here is the government's mandate to pay for this VOLUNTARY conversation every 5 years.

Re-read it.

My response:
Oh, this End of Life consultation has cleared my vision and knocked off my rose colored glasses! I can see clearly now! My question to you Ordinary is it necessary for our government to pay doctors for this required 5 year End-Of-Life consultation? Who will be on the panel to make these decisions? My whole point this bill is going to enforce Doctors to discuss this EOL every 5 years on anyone who is 65 and over. It is voluntary but the Doctors will be paid for this EOL interview and an elderly person might not have all their mental capabilities and make the wrong decision.

Another ObamaCare dirty secret

Chuck Norris has revealed another ObamaCare Dirty Secret: Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel.
Dirty secret No. 2 is that Obama is not the leader of Obamacare. And neither is Congress. The one who has been spearheading the initiative behind the scenes is one who goes under the misnomer "adviser" to the Obama administration, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, a bioethicist and breast oncologist and brother of White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel. And his bible for health care reform is his book "Healthcare, Guaranteed."

Dr. Emanuel has served as special adviser to the director of the White House Office of Management and Budget for health policy as far back as February, when he confessed to the Washington bureau chief for the Chicago Sun-Times that he was "working on (the) health care reform effort." The first draft of Obamacare?

If you want to know the future of America's universal health care, then you must understand the health care principles and plans of Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel. I find it far more than a coincidence how much Emanuel's book parallels Obamacare's philosophy, strategy and proposed legislation.

Ziegler's last day at KGIL

I'm so sad that today is his last day. Whats up John? Ratings I bet were low. Hard to be between Rush and Hannity on a local station with bad reception.

Update: Zig says the station went from talk to music. I still think he should go national with a syndicated format.

The left bringing up the Nazis in Town Halls

Liberals are hoping to turn the tide before Congress returns to Washington in September, and are even giving members of Congress tips for limiting ugly confrontations, such as holding their town meetings in churches. "It's much harder for people to scream expletives and bring swastikas into a church," Mr. Kirsch said.

Ronald Reagan Speaks out aganist Socialized Medicine

Ronald Reagan Essays
But at the moment I'd like to talk about another way because this threat is with us and at the moment is more imminent. One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine. It's very easy to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project. . . . Now, the American people, if you put it to them about socialized medicine and gave them a chance to choose, would unhesitatingly vote against it. We have an example of this. Under the Truman administration it was proposed that we have a compulsory health insurance program for all people in the United States, and, of course, the American people unhesitatingly rejected this.

Rush brought this up this morning on his show. Today Andy McCarthy brings up the NYT talking about the Stimulus package and Nazi Socialism.

Sarah Palin's Higher calling in fighting Socialism

Sarah Palin's article in The Business Insider here:
Our senior citizens are right to be wary of this health care bill. Medical care at the end of life accounts for 80 percent of all health care. When care is rationed, that is naturally where the cuts will be felt first. The “end-of-life” consultations authorized in Section 1233 of HR 3200 were an obvious and heavy handed attempt at pressuring people to reduce the financial burden on the system by minimizing their own care. Worst still, it actually provided a financial incentive to doctors to initiate these consultations. People are right to point out that such a provision doesn’t sound “purely voluntary.”

Sarah Palin's "higher calling" in quiting the governorship in Alaska was to combat Obama and his socialization of America. And I did read the bill and I'm not hysteric as to become blind. Sec. 1233 did not sound "voluntary" to me either.

Palin cheers Senate Panel dropping EOL Consult

From the HILL here:
She first derided the voluntary end-of-life consultations in a House healthcare reform bill as “death panels” that could force euthanasia on the elderly. Palin also suggested the panel could decide to force euthanasia on her own Down Syndrome baby.

The White House, independent observers and even some Republicans have criticized Palin for the remarks, saying they are false. Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.), who has worked to expand Medicare coverage of end of life consultations, described the death panel suggestions as “nuts.”

Since then, Palin, who some think may run for president in 2012, has written twice more on Facebook about the issue.

“We must stop and think or we may find ourselves losing even more of our freedoms," she wrote Friday.

2012 will be a good year for Republicans

From Rasmussen Reports poll:
Fifty-eight percent (58%) say the next President after Obama is at least somewhat likely to be a Republican. That’s up from 51% a month ago and 44% when Obama took office. Just 29% now say it’s not likely that a Republican will follow President Obama.

Why Government HC will ration care

Why have the conservatives rallied on the End-Of-Life consultations that are mandated in Sec. 2330 of HR 3200? We don't want GOVERNMENT in the way of our care. Especially when it involves how we are to end our life. We want LESS GOVERNMENT in our way not MORE GOVERNMENT. From WSJ Obama's Senior Moment here:
Mr. Obama has also said many times that the growth of Medicare spending must be restrained, and his budget director Peter Orszag has made it nearly his life's cause. We agree, but then why does Mr. Obama want to add to our fiscal burdens a new Medicare-like program for everyone under 65 too? Medicare already rations care, refusing, for example, to pay for virtual colonsocopies and has payment policies or directives to curtail the use of certain cancer drugs, diagnostic tools, asthma medications and many others. Seniors routinely buy supplemental insurance (Medigap) to patch Medicare's holes—and Medicare is still growing by 11% this year.

The political and fiscal pressure to further ration Medicare would increase exponentially if government is paying for most everyone's care. The better way to slow the growth of Medicare is to give seniors more control over their own health care and the incentives to spend wisely, by offering competitive insurance plans. But this would mean less control for government, not more.

Obama says the elderly have nothing to worry about. But if Health care is rationed, those with the most care are going to receive less. The Seniors look at this Rationing and with the required End-Of-Life consultations as More Government Control over their life. This bill takes all control over your life and care and hands it to the GOVERNMENT. Period.
Namely, once health care is nationalized, or mostly nationalized, rationing care is inevitable, and those who have lived the longest will find their care the most restricted.

Health Care is a Responsiblity--Not a Right

Great article over at WSJ by John Mackey: The Whole Foods Alternative to ObamaCare. My point to this Health Care Reform is medical care for the individual is a responsibility and not a right set forth in the Bill of Rights. It is a "Service" that we all need.
Many promoters of health-care reform believe that people have an intrinsic ethical right to health care—to equal access to doctors, medicines and hospitals. While all of us empathize with those who are sick, how can we say that all people have more of an intrinsic right to health care than they have to food or shelter?

Health care is a service that we all need, but just like food and shelter it is best provided through voluntary and mutually beneficial market exchanges. A careful reading of both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution will not reveal any intrinsic right to health care, food or shelter. That’s because there isn’t any. This “right” has never existed in America

Excellent Outline of HR 3200

Found this one article that outlines the whole 1000 pg bill here:

But it gets a lot worse. The health care you receive will be rationed according to your age, life expectancy, and the expected quality of that life. And this, from page 427: “Government mandates program for orders for end of life. The government has a say in how your life ends.”

For these “benefits,” we give up the finest health care in the world!

End of Life stuff here:
Pg 425 Lines 4-12 Government mandates Advance [Death] Care Planning Consult. Think Senior Citizens end of life.

Pg 425 Lines 17-19 Government will instruct and consult regarding living wills, durable powers of attorney. Mandatory!

Pg 425 Lines 22-25, 426 Lines 1-3 Government provides approved list of end of life resources, guiding you in death.

Pg 427 Lines 15-24 Government mandates program for orders for end of life. The government has a say in how your life ends.

The five freedoms you will loose with Goverment Option Health Care

1. Freedom to choose what's in your plan
2. Freedom to be rewarded for healthy living, or pay your real costs
3. Freedom to choose high-deductible coverage
4. Freedom to keep your existing plan
5. Freedom to choose your doctors

ACORN Playbook for HC Town Halls

From a post over at Hannity's board:
The people who show up are far right-wing ideologues recruited by paid organizers. Much of this recruitment and organizing is funded by industry lobbyists and public relations firms to engage radical right-wing groups. Many of these groups are motivated by far right ideology in general - not by health care as an issue. They are held together by a common vision of the world that centers on defeating Obama and his agenda. We can expect to see anti-abortion groups, pro-gun groups, insurance company employees (mandated by employers to come out), militia groups, and antiimmigration

All I know is the people who are showing up at these town hall meetings are every day citizens without connections to organizations or lobbyists. The ACORN and leftist organizations are painting individuals who disagree with "GOVERNMENT OPTION HEALTH CARE" as those who oppose leftest agenda. We might not agree with all of Obama's agenda, but I know 85% of the American people do not want "GOVERNMENT OPTION HEALTH CARE."

Der Speakers Nazi statement

Send Nancy a message about her comments here:

Go ahead and Snich, We'll be even LOUDER!

From Kevin McCullough on FoxNews here:
But now he wishes to turn one citizen against another?

At dozens of the town hall meetings taking place back in individual districts this month, numbers of reports have surfaced that ACORN members have taken to publicly berating normal citizens who are simply there to ask the questions they have about the viability of a plan that requires the government to spend an additional $1,000,000,000 dollars. They wonder this especially when 85% of people in America are satisfied and content with the health insurance system they've already chosen to engage.

So what's the answer to good old fashioned grass roots voters actually being engaged with their representatives in Congress while they're home during the August break?

The White House believes it's best to intimidate and silence, or at the bare minimum -- report.

The mistake this White House continues to make, seemingly on a daily basis, is that they reveal very much what they truly think of freedoms of the American political process.

Brown Shirt Tactics

When the White House is losing they bring in the Brown shirts. If it sounds fishy, they will collect e-mails, blogs and even neighbor's conversations. (Sound like a communist or Nazi plot?)
Over 10 years in Congress, U.S. Rep. Brian Baird has stayed tethered to his district, flying back to Southwest Washington for more than 300 sometimes-bruising town hall meetings during Congressional recesses.

But this year, he's literally decided to phone it in.

Instead of appearing in person, where "extremists" would have "the chance to shout and make YouTube videos," Baird said Wednesday, he's holding what he calls "telephone town halls" instead.

Baird said he's using the new system because he fears his political opponents may be planning "an ambush" to disrupt his meetings, using methods Baird compared to Nazism.

"What we're seeing right now is close to Brown Shirt tactics," Baird, D-Vancouver, said in a phone interview. "I mean that very seriously."

The coming telephone conference call would be Baird's third this year.

Even our Representatives must call in town halls in fear of the Brown Shirts!

--And Der Speaker Nancy even thinks there is too many Swastikas out there too!

Enemy E-Mail/Blog list--The Red Coats are coming!

Sen. Cornyn puts out blog post on the Whitehouse enemy list they are compiling. The White house is loosing the info battle on Government Health care. This reminds me of the British and King George sending out the Red Coats to bat down the Colonies during the Resistance to Colonial rule and unfair taxation.
Texas Sen. John Cornyn, accusing the White House of compiling an "enemies list," has asked President Barack Obama to stop an effort to collect "fishy" information Americans see about a health care overhaul.

Cornyn, who leads the Republicans' Senate campaign effort, said Wednesday in a letter to Obama that he's concerned that citizen engagement on the issue could be "chilled." He also expressed alarm that the White House could end up collecting electronic information on its critics.

"I can only imagine the level of justifiable outrage had your predecessor asked Americans to forward e-mails critical of his policies to the White House," Cornyn wrote.

Twitter down!

Is twitter down or what? For an hour and 1/2 I have not been able to get on? It is the Obamakin's taking it down or what? The White house is reeling with it's ramming health care reform down our throats. Der Speaker Nancy is claiming "swastika's" at Town Halls and Sen Ma'am Bab's Boxer is claiming the well dressed crowd are at Tea Party's! And I wants my Tweeter!

Twitter is getting a DOS attack. I wonder if it is the Chi-cons, NorKors or JiHadis?

The Ten questions to ask your Congress Member

From Hugh Hewitt here:

1. Do you guarantee that I get to keep the plan I have and the doctor I have?

2. Will the law require Members of Congress and federal employees to be enrolled in the "government option/public plan," and if not, why not?

3. Will seniors be guaranteed joint replacements, stents, and the chemotherapy they need, or will they be forced to accept less-costly and less-effective alternatives?

4. If seniors will be allowed the expensive but most effective treatments, how will costs be controlled?

5. Will seniors have to wait longer for their treatments than they do now?

6. Will doctors see their payment schedules drop?

7. If their payments fall and they make less money, won't there be fewer doctors practicing medicine?

8. Doesn't Canada have long lines for important surgeries?

9. How will making our system more like Canada's not mean longer lines and longer waits here?

10. Have you read the bill well enough to be interviewed about it on the radio by a conservative talk show host?

Obama Thought Police out in force

This sounds like in Harry Potter with the Death Eaters out there when you mention the Name of "You Know Who" Lord Voldemort.
There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to

From Red State here.

Hey Obamakins, go report me right now! Obama Health care is not about getting Health Insurance for everyone. It is about controlling the people and taking away their freedom! and I'm not going to lay down and roll over. We are going to stop this HC takeover and strong arming by the Brown Shirts.

We should call them "Regressives."

I thought the turd was supposed to be “progressive”. There is nothing “progressive” about parading out tired old Karl Marx mid-19th century ideas that fail. Liberals should call themselves “regressives” because they regress back to 1860’s Germany and 1917 Russia for their “progressive” ideas.

GOP Op-Ed to Socialized Health Care

By House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) Here:
That’s because the Democrats’ plan adds a new layer of taxes, mandates, and bureaucracy on top of the current system. If that’s not bad enough, the Democrats’ plan cuts Medicare and takes away choices for millions of seniors. What does all of this mean? Higher costs for the medicine and treatments you need.

Not only will the Democrats’ government-run health care plan raise your costs, but it also will raise costs for our nation’s employers – particularly small businesses. At the heart of their proposal is a small business tax that, for tens of millions, means diminished job security.

And that's why we are fighting this socialized form of Health Care. Seniors will not get the care they need. Small Business will falter and/or stop hiring new people. Bad for the economy. Bad for Americans. Yes medical costs are rising. But why can't we eliminate the costs by Tort reform. Doctors must raise costs because of Medical Malpractice Insurance and false clams and court costs. Instead of Congress raising our taxes to eliminate the coverage Americans already have.

A Very Merry Unbirthday to You! (yes, you)

Happy UN-Birthday Mr. President!

SHOCK UNCOVERED: Obama IN HIS OWN WORDS saying His Health Care Plan will ELIMINATE private insurance

Obama Poster in LA

From here:
Although reports at this time are unconfirmed, it is being reported that the release of the Obama Joker posters may be a coordinated endeavor across the US today by groups or organizations angry with the President, presumably, over issues relating to the proposed universal health care.

Yes, it is NOT A JOKE Obama wants to take away our personal freedom in running our lives by taking away the health care we have and rationing it out. Lots of people will be denied health care and the unnecessary loss of life. And we are not being a racist by talking about it.

Seniors and Health Care bill

I heard on the News that 7 Senior Citizens were arrested for staking out at Dianne Feinstien's LA office yesterday for 6 hours. They demanded to see the senator to state their feelings about the upcoming Health Care Bill. Socialized Medical care in Brittan and Canada regularly neglect the old. Why would US Socialized Health care take care of our older citizens. They are upset that in the current bill reductions in care for the elderly. Here is a blurb from John Boehner's blog here:
Seniors Concerned About Medicare Cuts, Believe Dem Bill Will Worsen Health Care. A new Gallup poll this morning says: “By a margin of three to one, 36% to 12%, adults 65 and older are more likely to believe healthcare reform will reduce rather than expand their access to healthcare. And by 39% to 20%, they are more likely to say their own medical care will worsen rather than improve.” Who can blame them? Among the chief concerns many Americans – particularly seniors – have about the Democrats’ government takeover is its Medicare cuts. The Associated Press reported yesterday that “Democrats are pushing for Medicare cuts on a scale not seen in years to underwrite health care for all. Many seniors now covered under the program don’t like that one bit.” An independent analysis of the House Democrats’ government-run plan shows the legislation slashes Medicare to the tune of $361.9 billion. That means fewer choices and lower health care quality for our nation’s seniors.

Pelosi is Stupidly accuses Insurance companies

I think Madame Speaker has it the other way around. The people do not want the "Public Option."
"It's almost immoral what they are doing," Pelosi said to reporters, referring to insurance companies. "Of course they've been immoral all along in how they have treated the people that they insure," she said, adding, "They are the villains. They have been part of the problem in a major way. They are doing everything in their power to stop a public option from happening."

I have no problem on how insurance companies have treated me. I've always got the care I needed and paid when they did not. It's called "responsibility" Nancy!

Blue Dogs agreement with Health Care

From Capt'n Ed at Hot Air:
If they’re right, this is a tremendously stupid move by Democrats. It gives the Republicans a fixed target for the next few weeks, with an ability to cite the actual legislation and pick it apart, while painting moderate Democrats as fools who haven’t bothered to read it. Having no final version of the bill would have allowed Democrats to dodge questions about it. This makes them stand on the bill for weeks without getting moved out of way. Call it political target practice, practically akin to shooting ducks in a barrel, for the GOP.

I hope this recess will be productive for the constituents to give the Blue Dogs an Ear full. It also lets the GOP go on the offense and hope to kill Health Care Legislation.

The Should Nots

Ever since I first dated my husband I have gotten much grief and aggregation from his family, especially his mom. My MIL has mental problems to begin with. She also is from a European county and has a thick accent. I can hardly understand a word she says. She can speak English but I'm at a loss at what she is saying half the time. So I can't really speak to her without half the time saying, "Can you please say that again?" Anyway here are the list of "Should Nots" I have gotten from his Mother and family over the years;

1. You should not wear that skirt. (You are not a lady!)
2. You should not wear Jeans. (Same thing)
3. You should not date him anymore.
4. You should not live together VS. Married.
5. You should not marry him. (oh please!)
6. You should not have any children. (ASD in family)
7. You should not give up your career (to raise the children).
8. You should not read the book but see the movie. (SIL problem!)

I'm happy to be married for 15 years and have two healthy girls. They do have Autism with learning problems. But I'm willing to love them and take care of them. God willing I will get thought this. The solution for me is not to attend family gatherings on his side. I know they don't like it, but he and the kids can still attend. I can't share anything with them, like reading a book first before going to see a Movie. I got the "You Should go see the movie, YOU don't have to read the BOOK!" I am not going to be attacked from them anymore. You want me around you be nice and say nice things and don't do the "Should NOTS" to me anymore. (Isn't that being Chastised enough?)

The Deadly Doctors (Chef of Staff Emanuel's Brother)

Basically, Our Chef of Staff's Emanuel's Brother is a doctor who promotes "Social Justice" rather than the Hippocratic Oath. He is a health-policy adviser at the Office of Management and Budget and a member of Federal Council on Comparative Effectiveness Research. He looks at the costs of extending care and not about saving the life of the patient no matter what. The age of "Soylent Green" is here. This bill has to be stopped!
But Emanuel wants doctors to look beyond the needs of their patients and consider social justice, such as whether the money could be better spent on somebody else.

Many doctors are horrified by this notion; they'll tell you that a doctor's job is to achieve social justice one patient at a time.

Emanuel, however, believes that "communitarianism" should guide decisions on who gets care. He says medical care should be reserved for the non-disabled, not given to those "who are irreversibly prevented from being or becoming participating citizens . . . An obvious example is not guaranteeing health services to patients with dementia" (Hastings Center Report, Nov.-Dec. '96).

Please read and copy and post! From NYPOST here.

HT from Kevin James at KRLA 870 AM here.

When I heard this last night on Kevin James' show I thought instantly about The Nazi Dr. Mengele. The difference between Mengele and Emanuel is that the Nazi inflicted pain and suffering. Emanuel suggests withholding treatment if the cost of the treatment outweighs the quality of life of the patient. So if you are disabled, too old, too young, etc. if your sickness is too severe to treat then you are denied the treatment because of the cost. And that medical procedure will not be available to you even if you were able to pay out of your pocket! I take it as if you are denied the treatment it is still torture! Welcome the new "Angel of Death" Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel.

Cronkite and the Killing Fields

From Big Hollywood here:
It was a Golden Age, all right - a Golden Age of enforced unanimity and bogus consensus hidden behind the strained-serious face and stentorian oration of St. Walter. It was an age of media liberalism unchallenged by anything like a conservative alternative. And it was all encompassing. In recent days, many have watched the footage of Cronkite announcing the death of John F. Kennedy. But if you watch the footage for a few minutes before his genuinely moving final bulletin, you’ll hear his innuendo hinting that Kennedy has been shot by disgruntled right-wingers. It must have broken his heart to find out that JFK had been murdered by a commie loner with an affinity for Castro.

Think of the proudest moments of the heroes of the media’s “Golden Age” - the McCarthy expose, the Watergate hearings, Cronkite’s own infamous thrust of the rhetorical dagger into the back of the fighting men in Vietnam (and of the Vietnamese who hoped for freedom) that was his Tet Offensive editorial. It’s like a liberal greatest hits album. There’s nothing, nothing even remotely conservative in the pantheon - because nothing conservative would have ever even occurred to the media heroes like Cronkite, Edward R. Murrow and the rest. Their prized objectivity was really only a tool that justified their own biases and opinions - if they did it, by definition, it was “objective.”

Cronkite was supposed to be the voice of the people of Middle America, but he was really just a loud voice speaking at them. And soon after they turned and rejected the man Cronkite dubbed the smartest of presidents - Jimmy Carter!?! - and elected Ronald Reagan, he threw in the towel. He passed the torch to Dan Rather, and the sun set upon the Golden Age of Media Liberalism. For all his faults, at least Cronkite maintained a certain dignity, but Crazy Dan is a catastrophe. When Rather dies, the quickest way to find his obits will be to Google the terms “Texas Air National Guard fraud” or “What’s the frequency, Kenneth?”

Yes, I remember the Reagan years without Cronkite. It was filled with screaming about the missiles Reagan wanted to put into Europe to protect them from the USSR. We had our fill of Rather and now of Katie C. I don't know anyone who watches the News on the networks anymore. They are dinosaurs. Just like Cronkite. But he knew when Reagan won, the winds had changed and he got out. God Rest his soul.

Cronkite's comment on Karl Rove

I remember the comment that Walter Cronkite said about Karl Rove on Larry King, "inclined to think that Karl Rove, the political manager at the White House, who is a very clever man, he probably set up bin Laden to this thing.” HT from Little Green Footballs here.

Here is the CNN transcript here.

KING: We're back with Walter Cronkite. Why has this campaign (2004)-- and you've been through a lot of them -- been so vituperative?

CRONKITE: I think partly because of the nature of the administration. It has offended a large number of people quite seriously, right down to their souls, apparently. The war has not supported fully, certainly by all the people. The economy has touched a lot of our people. And they feel very strongly about it. So there is a very definite body there in opposition to the administration, as we know. And the administration itself has a lot of support. I think that mostly it's really locked into the Iraqi situation.

More on Cronkite's passing here from Commentary Magazine article by John Podhoretz.
Cronkite was a key figure in many ways, but foremost among them, perhaps, was the fact that he cleared the way for the mainstream media and the Establishment to join what Lionel Trilling called “the adversary culture.” Cronkite, the gravelly voice of accepted American wisdom, whose comportment suggested he kept his money in bonds and would never even have considered exceeding the speed limit, devastated President Lyndon Johnson in the wake of the 1968 Tet Offensive by declaring that the United States “was mired in stalemate” in Vietnam—when Johnson knew that Tet had been a military triumph.

At the time Cronkite had 30 million viewers compared to about 7 million Dan Rather had. Cable News and the Internet has made the viewer numbers dwindle. Before Cronkite's 1968 "opinion" on the Vietnam war the poll ratings were in the 70% in favor of us winning the Vietnam war. After that broadcast it went down to 49% in favor of the war. Not that Cronkite lost the war for us. It's just the war was not won. The Johnston administration micro managed the war and the Army was not allowed to fight the war properly. (They did not do the "surge" like in Iraq).

Sarah on "Cap N Trade"

I am a bit saddened that Sarah will leave the Governorship of Alaska. But with the rising cost of the stupid ethics suits going on I couldn't imagine Sarah staying in office. And still the political nuts are giving her a hard time. She can't do anything with out the media and Dems getting there bit 'n piece of Sarah. (Letterman in included).

I loved reading her WSJ op-ed article yesterday.
Unfortunately, many in the national media would rather focus on the personality-driven political gossip of the day than on the gravity of these challenges. So, at risk of disappointing the chattering class, let me make clear what is foremost on my mind and where my focus will be:

I am deeply concerned about President Obama's cap-and-trade energy plan, and I believe it is an enormous threat to our economy. It would undermine our recovery over the short term and would inflict permanent damage.

American prosperity has always been driven by the steady supply of abundant, affordable energy. Particularly in Alaska, we understand the inherent link between energy and prosperity, energy and opportunity, and energy and security. Consequently, many of us in this huge, energy-rich state recognize that the president's cap-and-trade energy tax would adversely affect every aspect of the U.S. economy.

Coming form a Gov. that knows about ENERGY and was on a state ENERGY Board for AK. This lady knows what she is talking about.Sen. Kerry had to get his two cents in on Sarah. (He knows the MSM will publish his comments and bury Sarah's) here:
"The global climate change crisis threatens our economy and our national security in profound ways," writes Kerry.

"Governor Palin need no look further than the view from her front porch in Alaska to see how destructive this crisis can be," says Kerry, pointing to a two-year-old New York Times report about a small Alaskan village facing destruction because of melting permafrost.

Kerry's Huff 'n Puff article is here.

I have to find the article about what the Native Alaskans plan for Global Warming. If the permafrost melted and they had to provide food what would they do? Grow gardens (with 12 hours of sun light they would be very plentiful.) And raise dogs with short hair. The native Alaskans look forward to Global Warming. They would not have to go out to sea and capture seals. That's hard work!
Here is an blurb from the NYT article Kerry was quoting from:
Amid the uncertainty, the residents of Newtok hear the skeptics, who question the price tag for moving such a small, seemingly inconsequential place. But residents here emphasize that they are a federally recognized American Indian tribe, and they shudder when asked why they cannot just move to an existing village or a city like Fairbanks.

They say their identity is rooted in their isolation, however qualified it has become over the last century by outside influences. It was the government, they say, that insisted decades ago that they and so many other villages abandon their nomadic ways and pick a place to call home. The current village site was once only a winter camp, and the people of Newtok say they are not to blame just because they are now among the first climate refugees in the United States.

“The federal government, they’re the ones who came into our lives and took away some of our values,” said Nick Tom Jr., 49, the former Newtok tribal administrator. “They came in and said, ‘You aren’t civilized. We’re going to educate you.’ That was hard for our grandparents.”

The federal government is the problem. If the tribe moved from winter to summer to different camps the tribe would not be facing this problem. Sen. Kerry over looked this in quoting this NYT article.
