Taming the Tea Parties, Tea Party Must Stand Up to Liberal Smear Tactics, Less Could Be More, Fatass Kids need more recess, Roach Slumlord Imam Feisal Raul, Terry Jones has scored, Idiot Obama "Feel Your Pain", Idiots who voted for Obama, Clinton: "the best Republican president the country ever produced?"


Taming the Tea Parties - The American Conservative

GOP regulars and their movement conservative drones have been sending signals for some time now that they wish to have the Tea Party be nice. While David Frum and David Brooks have generally followed the Left in condemning these “extremists,” Bill Kristol, George Will, Jonah Goldberg, and Rich Lowry have taken a gentler approach to the problem. Goldberg praises Glenn Beck and those who attended his Washington rally for being inspirational by invoking Martin Luther King and the civil rights movement. Never mind, as Al Sharpton correctly noted, that King held social and economic views that were diametrically opposed to those of his effusive admirers Beck and Sarah Palin. For Goldberg and Geraldo Rivera on Fox, the reaching out at the rally to civil rights images was what counted.

Some of this conciliatory talk was followed in National Review by Rich Lowry on September 3, who seemed to be stroking the monster. Lowry characterizes the Tea Party insurgency in the GOP as a “bourgeois revolt.” For the most part its activists wish to go back to the pre-Obama American “dispensation.” They are seeking nothing more cataclysmic than getting the country “back to its typical level (of spending) in recent decades, roughly 20% of GDP.” These mostly good folks wish to return to the “constitutional limits that obtained during most of the country’s history,” and from which we strayed under the present Democratic administration.

Tea Party Must Stand Up to Liberal Smear Tactics, Conservative Activist Says

Washington (CNSNews.com) – The continued strength of the tea party movement is a testament to the increasing ineffectiveness of the mainstream media, says conservative activist Andrew Breitbart. He believes big media outlets and liberal groups have tried to intimidate and discredit those involved in the conservative tea party movement.

“The mainstream media serves up its Saul Alinsky, villainous tactics, [but] they only hurt if you allow for it to hurt you,” Breitbart told CNSNews.com in an interview Sunday at the 9/12 Taxpayer March on Washington. Alinsky, a community organizer, wrote the book “Rules for Radicals.”

Tea Party To Diversify Organization By Seeking Blacks - News One

FreedomWorks, the big daddy of the tea party-sponsoring organizations, is the latest to make an attempt at shedding the movement’s all-white image.

The group recently announced DiverseTea, a targeted advertising and outreach campaign aimed at extending the tea party’s reach into minority communities. After a summer of attacks on the tea party (most notably from the NAACP, which accused the tea party movement of harboring racist elements — a criticism tea partiers reject out of hand), FreedomWorks is the latest to get on the diversity train.

Less Could Be More - The American Spectator

By Tom Coburn
When Thomas Jefferson famously said, "The course of history shows that as a government grows, liberty decreases," he wasn't merely talking about the politics of his day, but the politics of human behavior across generations and across continents. President Reagan no doubt had this principle in mind throughout his presidency. Reagan updated Jefferson with his suggestion that "as government expands, liberty contracts."

We hear a lot of rhetoric today about ending the "politics of the past," but there is no question more relevant or timely than the timeless question Jefferson and our other Founders asked: "What is the proper scope of government that will maximize freedom, prosperity, and security?" Our key policy debates revolve around this question, whether politicians admit it or not. The answer from our Founders, which was enshrined in our Constitution, is unmistakable: the best government is a limited government.

What Obama Should Tell the Kids - The American Spectator

Once again I received a note home from my son's school about President Obama's address to school kids. Since Obama has now made this questionable practice a tradition, I'd like to suggest what Obama should say. Unlike those who might be concerned that Obama will try to brainwash the children about health care, I think Obama needs to talk to students about health. I also think he needs to act like a good politician and tell kids exactly what they want to hear. He needs to tell them, "You need more recess."

Sadly, recess is dying by strangulation from other supposedly good things. Recently, I met my son's teacher and received a copy of my son's schedule. I saw lots of good things he needs to and should learn, but I also looked for what I always loved -- those precious times of recess.

Iranian Regime: Obama Administration Is to Blame For Koran Burning - First Things

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast condemned the recent insult to the holy Quran on the 9/11 anniversary in the US, and stressed that Washington’s effort to spread anti-Islamic sentiments and Islamophobia in the US was the root cause of the provocative act.

Way To Go, Rev! - Wizbang

Well, it looks like Reverend Terry Jones has scored. In light of his (empty) threat to burn Korans, Muslims engaged in the traditional Islamic Expression Of Righteous Indignation... and killed at least 15 people. Oh, and another rumor of a burned Koran in Michigan led to the entirely-predictable burning of a Christian church in India.

Here we see the actual dynamics of the principle I outlined on Sunday: "Don't piss off the crazy dangerous people."

NJ Town Files Suit Against Rat/Roach Slumlord Imam Feisal Raul of Ground Zero Mosque Infamy - Atlas Shrugs

"The Record also reported that Rauf had ties to local waterfront developer Fred Daibes, and was sued by a Daibes associate who had charged the imam [Rauf] with mortgage fraud in 2008, a suit that was settled in June. The suit, filed today in state Superior Court in Jersey City, identifies Rauf as the sole officer of Sage Development LLC, a company based at his home address in North Bergen and listed as the owner of the two buildings. The suit also alleges that Sage’s corporate status was revoked by the state in March 2005, for its failure to file annual reports. The buildings occupy the same lot at 226 Central Ave., one containing 32 apartments and the other 16. The larger building has been vacant since Feb. 8, 2008, when a fire broke out there, one year after the city says it issued 12 separate fire code violations that Rauf ignored."
Look what's crawling out from under the Rauf. Without his Albright resume and subdued dhimmedia running interference, it is plain as day that this hustler is a lowlife. He has been exposed on Atlas as a rat and vermin slumlord whose tenants live without basic services like hot water.

Jobless Strain Social Security ‘Disability’ - Sweetness & Light

The number of former workers seeking Social Security disability benefits has spiked with the nation’s economic problems, heightening concern that the jobless are expanding the program beyond its intended purpose of aiding the disabled.

Applications to the program soared by 21 percent, to 2.8 million, from 2008 to 2009, as the economy was seriously faltering.

The growth is the sharpest in the 54-year history of the program. It threatens the program’s fiscal stability and adds to an administrative backlog that is slowing the flow of benefits to those who need them most.

Breaking: Obama now feeling America’s pain - Hot Air

Via JWF, this is where it all starts to turn around, my friends.
This is where the healing begins.
President Obama told a small crowd in Fairfax, Va., on Monday that he would stand in the hot sun with them and “feel their pain.”…'


Unlike former President Clinton, who famously felt the pain of voters during a recession, Obama has not connected emotionally with voters over their worries and fears…

“The problem is he doesn’t seem like he’s always trying to be empathetic,” said one Democratic strategist.

for the emotional connection people need in times like this — but they’ve needed it for two years,” another Democratic strategist said…

Obama’s professorial style was on display during the backyard discussion, as he ticked off the list of things he has done to help the middle class. He talked about his administration’s support for Wall Street reform, as well as his support for middle-class tax cuts.

Idiots who voted for Obama



Via Boortz

Can you believe these people were so spectacularly uninformed about the issues and the people involved in the election? These people knew absolutely NOTHING! They may be very nice people, but when it came to politics and our government they were charter members of the dumb masses. The truth is that they had absolutely no business voting. The only thing these Obama voters got right were the questions about which candidate word $150,000 worth of clothes purchased by the campaign, and which candidate had a pregnant teenage daughter.

Remember .. there is no Constitutional right to vote in a presidential election. These people should have been kept away from the polls.

I think that it should be illegal to vote if you are this retarded…

Obama’s Delusions of Competence - National Review
The president overestimates the government's ability to solve problems.

Vanity Fair does make a conservative point. Government is too big. Purdum quotes from just one day’s Federal Register:

The edition for this ordinary Wednesday comes in at 350 pages of dense, dark type. It is unimaginably varied: you’ll find rules for the importation of Chinese honey; proposed conservation standards for home furnaces; permitting procedures for the experimental use of pesticides; announcements concerning the awarding of new radio and TV licenses; and hundreds of other items.
The president himself doesn’t at all concede that government is attempting to do too much (and failing at most of it). On the contrary, his vanity (and it is a common one for left-wingers) is that he believes his particular ideas on business investment, medical procedures, housing, and thousands of other matters are the solutions to our woes, but “politics” keeps getting in the way.

Editorial: Suits could be stake in heart of Obamacare - The Orange County Register

A showdown looms in Florida when 20 states and a national small-business organization will argue before a federal judge that President Barack Obama's sweeping health care reform should be overturned as unconstitutional. In a hearing set for Tuesday, 20 state attorneys general were seeking to have Obamacare struck down before it goes into effect. They will be joined by lawyers for the National Federation of Independent Businesses, a nonprofit small-business organization.

Bill Clinton rebuts Rachel Maddow, critics on left - Politico

Bill Clinton flashed irritation at MSNBC host Rachel Maddow and other liberals Monday for failing to appreciate the successes of his presidency.

“One of the leading television commentators on one of our liberal cable channels said I was the best Republican president the country ever produced, which would come [as] quite a surprise to the Republicans, half of whom still think I’m a closet communist,” Clinton said during an appearance with former British Prime Minister Tony Blair at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia.

Civil Rights Photographer Unmasked As Informant - News One

That photo of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. riding one of the first desegregated buses in Montgomery, Ala.? He took it. The well-known image of black sanitation workers carrying “I Am a Man” signs in Memphis? His. He was the only photojournalist to document the entire trial in the murder of Emmett Till, and he was there in Room 306 of the Lorraine Hotel, Dr. King’s room, on the night he was assassinated.

But now an unsettling asterisk must be added to the legacy of Ernest C. Withers, one of the most celebrated photographers of the civil rights era: He was a paid F.B.I. informer.
