The Shrinking Field

Rick Perry has dropped out of the Republican Primary race. He is going to throw his support to Newt Gingrich, news coverage at 11am.

Cain, Bachmann, Huntsman, and now Perry. Gone.

The decision comes after the Texas governor, who once led the field of GOP hopefuls, endured disappointing finishes in the leadoff Iowa and New Hampshire contests. While he is polling only in single digits in South Carolina, his decision to withdraw could end up giving a boost to one of his opponents should his supporters gravitate toward a particular candidate.

Crivens. At this rate, there won’t be any choice but Romney by the time the primary bandwagon gets to my state. Grrrrr.

The Great GOP Debate

Is This The Last One, Please?

No. Sorry Drew. It’s only the last one before the Iowa caucus. There will be more to come, though the field will narrow as the primaries transpire and the losers leave the stage.

I caught most of the GOP candidate’s debate last night. This one was pretty good. Bryan Preston at PJ Tattler has a pretty good recap, with only a small amount of bias coming through. Go hence and read the play by play, then skim the comments with the awareness that the Paulbots are still out there doing what they do best.

I agree with him that Michelle Bachmann came off poorly against Newt Gingrich during their abortion dust-up. Not so much in what she said, but in how she said it. I know she feels frustrated that the polls and the media have sidelined her; she even came out last night with a “don’t ignore me, I am a viable candidate” kind of remark ... but she came off as rather shrewish during that part. A male candidate would have seemed just as bad had he delivered the same words in the same manner. Sometimes it’s how you say things that matters just as much as what you say.

If I had to put it my opinion of the debate and the whole darn campaign in a nutshell, I’d agree most with comment #29 by Philly Guy, which I’ll trim down to the core (I favor Rick Perry more than he does though):

1) Ron Paul is a very scary dude.
2) Michelle Bachmann has no accomplishments in government at all. ... She irritates me.
3) John Huntsman is better than Ambien.
4) Rick Santorum seems to say a lot of very good things, has a variety of accomplishments and connects the dots very well. He also seems like he’s still in college.
5) After Rick Perry is done, there won’t be any federal government left any more.  Let’s go back and undo Obamacare, have a vigorous and strong US foreign policy, cut taxes and rebuild America’s values. I’m not a big fan of his tack towards the religious aspect of his life.
6) Newt Gingrich is a conundrum. He would destroy Obama in a debate. Easily the most articulate thinker with the biggest ideas in the race. He also steps in it a lot.
7) Mitt Romney comes off as a competent manager ... He is also an amazing flip-flopper – on the same level as Obama. ... Despite that, he would do well in a debate with Obama. The guy has staying power.



My Big Picture take at this point? It’s going to be Romney. And that shows you just how important it is to keep the pressure on your Congressweasels and Senators, and to push and push and push for the Tea Party philosophy. The President leads, but it’s the Legislature that gets things done. And while I personally wouldn’t mind waking up tomorrow and learning that the federal budget has been cut by 80%, that more than half the federal government has been laid off, and that a quarter million micromanaging laws have been thrown out, that level and rate of change is only going to happen at the end of a gun barrel, which I would really like to avoid. Big steps are going to have to be taken, but they are going to have to be taken one at a time. So Perry’s views are correct, but we can’t do it all in one fell swoop. That would be a revolution, and who wants the period of anarchy that always goes with one of those? What we need are some honest politicians who can work out honest incremental but significant solutions, not beholden to special interest groups and without the braying rhetoric of the frantic and the unhinged. Leadership in favor of cost cutting and limited government sure would help. Let’s take some big steps to build up speed to make sure we’re running in the right direction before just leaping off the cliff. Yeah, good luck with that one Drew.




And once again I’ll put out my advice to the GOP: STFU already about abortion. I don’t like it, they don’t like it. Fine. Accepted. Face the music of that debate: it’s over, it’s been over, that train left the station 40 years ago, the tracks were ripped up, and Toll Brothers built a subdivision where the station used to be. Make a blanket statement about it, a layer of varnish on this plank in your platform, then refer every last media shill to go and read it, and refuse to make any other statement or comment:

For now it is the law of the land. To change this law requires a constitutional amendment. To get an amendment passed requires 36 of the 50 states to sign on to it. That’s the one and only way. Any and every attempt by towns, cities, counties, and states to limit or make it locally illegal will be turned over by the courts. ALL OF THEM. ALWAYS. PERIOD. Half the population - at least - supports abortion, so the chances of getting an amendment ratified are pretty damn slim. We will continue to make our opinion known, and hope someday to turn the majority of the public in our direction. But that day is not this day. Now let’s move on.

Got your box of rocks ready to throw at my glass house? Great! Have at it; comments are open.

Oh Shut Up Already

Lick-spittle Media: Tea Party Wants You To Die!!!!!!!1111!!

Oh noes!!!!



Funny how the whole world knows that all of today’s youth couches nearly everything they say in derisive sarcasm, thinking that they’re being superlatively ironic. Yet such acts are taken at face value when it serves Chairman Oh’s cause.


“Audience at Tea Party Debate Cheers Leaving Uninsured To Die”
By Rachel Rose Hartman, Political Reporter | The Ticket – Tue, Sep 13, 2011

If you’re uninsured and on the brink of death, that’s apparently a laughing matter to some audience members at last night’s tea party Republican presidential debate.

Texas Rep. Ron Paul, a doctor, was asked a hypothetical question by CNN host Wolf Blitzer about how society should respond if a healthy 30-year-old man who decided against buying health insurance suddenly goes into a coma and requires intensive care for six months. Paul--a fierce limited-government advocate-- said it shouldn’t be the government’s responsibility. “That’s what freedom is all about, taking your own risks,” Paul said and was drowned out by audience applause as he added, “this whole idea that you have to prepare to take care of everybody …”

“Are you saying that society should just let him die?” Blitzer pressed Paul. And that’s when the audience got involved.

Several loud cheers of “yeah!” followed by laughter could be heard in the Expo Hall at the Florida State Fairgrounds in response to Blitzer’s question.

Paul disagreed with the audience on that front. “No,” he responded, noting he practiced medicine before Medicaid when churches took care of medical costs--a comment that drew wide audience applause. “We never turned anybody away from the hospital.”

Conservative Andrew Sullivan writing for The Daily Beast’s The Dish Tuesday noted that the United States obligates society to save someone in an emergency room. “America, moreover, has a law on the books that makes it a crime not to treat and try to save a human being who walks into an emergency room. So we have already made that collective decision and if the GOP wants to revisit it, they can,” Sullivan wrote.

Sullivan also decried the audience reaction, writing: “Maybe a tragedy like the death of a feckless twentysomething is inevitable if we are to restrain healthcare costs. But it is still a tragedy. It is not something a decent person cheers.”

Wow, what a weak-ass Appeal To Authority. And since when is leftist swisher Andrew Sullivan a Conservative? He’s about as conservative as Charles Johnson at LGF is these days: NOT.

Talk about media bias. This is just as twisted in it’s own projectionist way as Obama’s jack booted AttackWatch site, his latest creepy, authoritarian nutjob Fight the Smears, rat out your neighbors, CCCP inspired horseshit campaign, which is of course directly linked to a sub page that spreads smears against the Right. Hey, isn’t that ironic???

What a turd. Who, Obama or Hartman? Yes.

I can’t be bothered to fisk the pants off of this bit of garbage and it’s author, so I’ll hand the task over to the pros(e). Here’s Ann:

Liberals are on their high horses about a single audience member at CNN’s Republican debate whom they believe wanted a hypothetical man without health insurance in a hypothetical coma to die—hypothetically.

(Democrats want people in comas to die only when they are not hypothetical but real, like Terri Schiavo.)

I concur with the audience member who shouted “Yes!” This has nothing to do with any actual people in comas—the people Democrats want to kill—it’s just a big “screw you” to the moderator.

Following up on Brian Williams’ showboating questions at last week’s Republican debate about the execution of the innocent and starving children with distended stomachs, this week, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer launched his question about an imaginary comatose man without health insurance.

As Rep. Ron Paul began to discuss the pitfalls of collectivism, Blitzer kept interrupting him, concluding with, “But Congressman, are you saying that society should just let him die?”

That’s when an audience member yelled out “Yes!”—allowing liberals to luxuriate in self-righteousness, the likes of which we have not seen since the Jersey Girls demanded a Homeland Security Department be created because their husbands died.

Normal people are sick of liberals’ emotional stories that play to soccer moms, but always seem to pave the way for disastrous social policies that benefit only left-wing special-interest groups.

Someone ought to calculate the carnage liberals foisted on this country beginning in the late-’60s with their “compassionate” approach to rapists and serial killers like McDuff—consequences that liberals were fully immunized from in their safe, ivory tower neighborhoods. Let’s ask Michael Dukakis to run the numbers.

Regarding Williams’ baby seal question about starving children in Texas with distended stomachs: No one is starving in this country. The only bloated stomach problem affecting America’s poor is a medical condition known as “obesity.”

According to the General Accounting Office, in 2008, the federal government had 18 separate food programs that spent $62.5 billion each year to feed the poor. And that was before the Food Stamp President assumed office.

I would venture to guess that the only children in America who have ever suffered from kwashiorkor, the condition that causes distended bellies, were victims of child abuse—at the hands of the sort of monsters Williams is so opposed to executing.

People aren’t buying the left’s emotional appeals about imaginary victims anymore. The audience member’s “Yes!” was a way of laughing in the moderators’ faces for trying to pull that crap.

PS - What is wrong with the GOP and their bringing in uber-leftists to moderate their debates? Wolf Blitzer? Oh puh-lease. Wassamatter, they couldn’t get Dan Rather? Was there no translator available for Fidel Castro? Michael Moore out of town? Crivens.

Our Brave Republicans In The Senate

Republican Democrat Majority Senate Votes Down Bill To End Ethanol Subsidy

Ensuring Continued High Gas and Food Prices For Citizens

51 Democrats, 47 Republicans, and 2 Independents, and the vote went 59-40. Somebody crossed the aisle, for sure.


Yup, that’s Change We Can Believe In, alright.


UPDATE: Yup, I goofed it, because I was so pissed off at this stupidity I wasn’t thinking straight. I’m outraged that a single (R) voted for this garbage, and I’m outraged that any person of either party would continue throwing good money after bad when the purse is already empty. 6 billion here, 5 billion there, pretty soon it adds up to real money. And we need to cut 2 trillion.

Nor do I really give a rat’s ass whether the (R) votes to kill this amendment were from “farm states”. Phooey. ALL STATES ARE FARM STATES; it’s just that some states have more farms than others do. And the time for special interest pork is over. Vote for the good of the nation and to get us out of the financial depression we’re in, or earn my enmity.

Republicans voting to kill this amendment, along with the majority of Democrats:
Blunt (R-MO)
Coats (R-IN)
Cochran (R-MS)
Grassley (R-IA)
Hoeven (R-ND)
Johanns (R-NE)
Kirk (R-IL)
Moran (R-KS)
Portman (R-OH)
Roberts (R-KS)
Thune (R-SD)
Wicker (R-MS)

Looks like a pretty solid chunk of “flyover country” doesn’t it? The red meat of the Red States. Proving once again that the Republican party is just as much in the bag to the special interest groups and the pork barrel BS as the Democrats are.

Democrats and Independents who might have America’s best interests at heart, along with the majority of the Republicans:
Cantwell (D-WA)
Lieberman (ID-CT)
Manchin (D-WV)
Pryor (D-AR)
Tester (D-MT)
Webb (D-VA)

The ethanol industry yesterday praised the U.S. Senate for voting down an amendment by Senator Coburn (R-OK) to repeal ethanol tax incentives, including the Volumetric Ethanol Excise Tax Credit (VEETC) or the “blenders’ credit” by a vote of 59 to 40.

American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) Executive Director Brian Jennings said the vote sends the “right message” to the American public.

“This vote is a major victory for the biofuels industry and American consumers and a setback for those clinging to our status-quo dependence on oil. It proves political stunts aimed at ethanol won’t be tolerated in the U.S. Senate. Now we can focus on continuing our work with the White House and both chambers of Congress to support meaningful and responsible legislation to reform ethanol policy, such as S. 1185, the Ethanol Reform and Deficit Reduction Act, introduced by Senators Thune, Klobuchar, and many others this week,” Jennings said.

Jennings added that ethanol supporters should also be praised for the work that they did in defeating Senator Coburn’s amendment.

“ACE grassroots members from around the nation took the initiative to make phone calls and send emails to Senate offices, making a persuasive case that this vote was important and could make a difference at the pump and in the pocketbook. We thank our members for their efforts and we urge them to stay involved as these discussions continue to develop in the months to come,” Jennings said.

Jeff Broin, Chairman and CEO of the world’s largest ethanol producer, POET, said the ethanol tax credit had been responsible for building America’s “most successful renewable fuel into 10 percent of our gasoline supply”.

The Senate refused Tuesday to end $6 billion in ethanol subsidies, defeating an amendment by Sens. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and Tom Coburn, R-Okla., that crystallized a larger ideological split within the GOP over whether removing tax subsidies is a tax increase or is a legitimate way to trim the $1.5 trillion federal deficit.

The amendment became a test vote in this summer’s struggle to raise the $14.3 trillion debt ceiling. Republicans insist a debt-limit increase be accompanied by trillions of dollars in spending cuts and no tax increases. Democrats say tax increases must be part of the equation.
...
More than 40 percent of the U.S. corn crop now goes to ethanol, an alcohol fuel made from corn and added by law to gasoline. The fuel puts upward pressure on corn prices, harming dairy, livestock and chicken farmers who feed corn to their animals and face record $8-a-bushel corn because of flooding in the Mississippi Basin.

Ethanol gets three levels of government support: a 45-cent-a-gallon tax credit paid to refiners set to expire this year; a 54-cent-a-gallon tariff that blocks cheaper and more energy-efficient, sugar-based ethanol imports; and a federal regulation that in effect required a 10 percent blend of ethanol into gasoline.

Seems to me I recall that even Al Gore said that this thing was a flop. And if Mr. Blinders can see that, and admits his support was mostly for political reasons, what excuse does anyone else have?

It is not a good policy to have these massive subsidies for first-generation ethanol. One of the reasons I made that mistake is that I paid particular attention to the farmers in my home state of Tennessee and I had a certain fondness for the farmers in the state of Iowa because I was about to run for president.

Glad to know that our elitist Betters in DC won’t listen to him either, and that they remain beholden to big bucks special interest groups. So we won’t be saving that piddling $6 billion in handouts any time soon.

Only in America do we pay farmers to grow food to burn to run our cars. If they can’t make ethanol from grass clippings and scrap plant waste, it’s worthless. And if they can’t make a distillation process that uses less energy than the ethanol that comes out, it’s asinine. And that’s where we are today. Worthless and asinine, just like our Senate.

PS - I didn’t have $15,000 in cash sitting around a year or so ago, so I wasn’t able to trade in my older economy car for a newer flexi-fuel economy car in that Cash For Clunkers program. My car gets about 10% less mpg on this 10% gasohol, or cornoline, or whatever they call the damn mix. I hate it.

Demonic: New Coulter Book

image



“The idea for this country, contained in our founding documents, was revolutionary and brilliant, and it was about limited government, property rights, self-reliance, and self-determination - which makes it a conservative idea”


… when did Ann Coulter become the Angry Woman of the Right—and doesn’t she find this, well, infuriating? “Not at all”, she laughs. “What ‘angry’ means today is, ‘I don’t agree with you,’” she adds. “To avoid being called ‘angry,’ people on our side are always supposed to yield to the Left. Otherwise, we’re injuring them somehow.”

So what accounts for the gap between Coulter’s reputation for being cranky and reality? “It’s something the Left does very well,” she explains. “Getting people to deny what their own senses—their own eyes and ears—are telling them.” ...

The proverbial reasonable man might wonder if Coulter would be willing to reveal anything at all about her new book. She would indeed: “It’s called ’Demonic: How The Liberal Mob Is Endangering America,’ and it’s about how liberals act like a mob because they are a mob. Picking up where the brilliant 19th century social scientist Gustave Le Bon left off, I show how similar the Left is to a common street mob in the ways they think and behave.

What examples can she cite of behaviors shared by both a street mob and the Left? “Groupthink—a reasoning disability to which Christians and conservatives are immune, by the way. An inclination to hold contradictory opinions. A habit of being swayed by images rather than by words and logic. A tendency to resort to violence to advance their cause. And, as I’ve said, a willingness to disbelieve their own senses.”

Asked for a recent example of this phenomena, Coulter cites the banking crisis: “Here’s how Obama described the economic collapse: ‘The Republicans drove the car into a ditch, and now they want us to give them the keys back.’ So instead of a carefully worded description of how the banking crisis unfolded, people remember Story Time when the car went into the ditch and John Boehner climbed out from behind the wheel, with maybe a cut on his forehead, and said, ‘Wha’ happened?’ The End.

“Now, if you explain to liberals that Fannie [Mae] and Freddie [Mac] and the Community Redevelopment Act encouraged banks to issue suicidal mortgages, and Wall Street intermingled those bad mortgages with good ones and sold them in bundles, and when the housing market collapsed, the whole economy tanked, they say, ‘OK, but what about the car and the ditch?’

“They also believe that since government intervention and Wall Street got us into this mess, what we need is for the government to step in again and give Wall Street more money. It’s textbook mob thinking.” ...

The high-water mark of mob behavior, she believes, was the French Revolution. “The American Revolution was a revolution of ideas,” she explains. “The idea of a constitutional, representative democracy, based on the consent of the governed, in the form of three competing branches, was revolutionary. The French Revolution—which hardly deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as the American Revolution!—was a protracted mob action, which mostly consisted of some French people mindlessly beheading other French people. The French Revolution was not inspired by some groundbreaking political manifesto like the Declaration of Independence. It was more like a street riot that got out of control and went on for years because they let it. As Napoleon said, if Louis XVI had stood up to that mob, even once, he would have won.”

So, in SAT test-question form, the French Revolution, with its wanton violence and primitive thinking, is to the liberal mentality as the American Revolution, with its emphasis on ideas and well-crafted arguments, is to the conservative mentality? “Exactly!” ...



Soon to be another NY Times best seller - almost guaranteed, and yet another Conservative book that the NY Times will never, ever review - absolutely guaranteed. Funny thing how Conservative books top the lists year after year, but liberal ones get remaindered all the time. Actually, it’s not that funny: Conservatives read, and amass libraries. Liberals watch TV and amass pent up feelings.

Find Coulter’s latest book in all the usual bookstores, or check your email; Townhall Magazine is giving away a copy with new subscriptions, and other right winger mags are sure to do the same.

How much will it be tomorrow?

Aww CRAP





“We’re going to cut $100 billion off the budget! That’s our Pledge To America!” Wasn’t that the hue and cry?

Then it was $60 billion.

Then we went through 2 solid weeks of shenanigans on the Hill, and they came away with $38.5 billion.

And today we learn that somebody was fapping the numbers, because the real bottom line is that they only actually cut $14.7 billion. And some of that money was for border security efforts.

The meat of the spending deal struck between the two parties late Friday night was revealed in a legislative omnibus released early Tuesday morning. The specifics show that finding nearly $40 billion in cuts during the 2011 fiscal year required clever accounting and, for the White House, a willingness to concede on rhetoric to find gains on substance.

For example, the final cuts in the deal are advertised as $38.5 billion less than was appropriated in 2010, but after removing rescissions, cuts to reserve funds, and reductions in mandatory spending programs, discretionary spending will be reduced only by $14.7 billion.

White House officials said throughout the process that the composition of the cuts was more important than the top-line number, and that including mandatory cuts allowed that top line to grow while limiting the immediate impact of the cuts.

The move also keeps the 2011 discretionary baseline slightly higher, a terrain advantage for the Democrats heading into the 2012 spending process.

Read it and weep. If Present is President without the ID, then it looks to me like John Boehner isn’t worth his “eh”.

“We’re going to overturn Obamacare.” Really? Really truly?

Health care reform, too, will be implemented, though now under the eyes of several Republican-imposed audits and studies. The deal does cut $2.5 billion, nearly half the funding, from an effort to set up health care co-ops that was opposed by the insurance industry, and eliminates another policy, opposed by both corporations and labor unions, that allowed individuals to use the funding from employer-provided health care benefits to shop for insurance on the individual market.

Good news, except that Obamacare was pretty much written by the insurance companies to being with. So defunding the part that they don’t like is just playing into their hands even more. And the second policy mentioned there takes away your freedom of choice. Of course the unions opposed that; they don’t want you to have any.

Wow. Such a victory. I fully expect that by this time tomorrow another look at the numbers will show that Bo-eh-ner actually agreed to a spending increase; he got X cuts in departments A, B, and C at the cost of 3X increases in departments O, F, U. Which is what it looks like the Obamunists did to him. Are we to expect another boo-hoo video Johnny boy?

The president also garnered an additional $700 million in spending for his competitive education funding program, “Race to The Top,” and though it includes new audits of the consumer protection agency created by the Dodd-Frank financial regulatory overhaul, it also raises funds to implement reforms at the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodities Futures Trading Commission.

Go read “Race to the Top” and see if they’re actually talking about anything speed related. Or even academic, since the winning states won’t have to ability to target even half the awarded funds. 50+% of them are pre-mandated to certain LEA (local education agencies).  And will you ever be able to trust anything with the Dodd-Frank imprimatur on it? I won’t. This is starting to look more like a shellacking than a victory.

anti usa self styled experts on the usa claim palin and tea party responsible for az shooting.jerks!

Good afternoon BMEWS.

Some interesting stuff. Hell, it’s all interesting to me.
First of all, I’m not going to post the story about the wanker who shot the congresswoman.  I imagine by now you folks at home are seeing it all on TV over and over and over again. And the talking heads, and the victim photos.  I also imagine there are now new calls for strict gun control.
So no.  I’m not gonna post the article that’s in ALL the papers here.  But I will post this line from the Mail on line.

Nation with a history of shocking gun massacres

The Tucson massacre is the latest in a series of shooting massacres in America.

That’s how they see us folks. Not all to be sure. Not all.  But very many sad to say.

I had thought of just posting some of the comments readers are leaving on the Mail site.  Changed my mind about that tho. Not I confess out of consideration for you. But out of selfish thinking on my part cos if I posted those damned comments here, it would mean I’d get frustrated and pissed off every time I had to come back or post something new and scroll and then see again.  I have no idea where some people are getting facts and figures. One person claimed there were 30,000 deaths a year in the USA from the use of guns.  When I wrote in and asked for a source for that figure, I got 20 red arrows for my trouble.
Here’s what I said.

May I please say that as an American (living here temporarily), it is not the business of foreigners to lecture us on our possession of weapons, which are mainly held for hunting, shooting sport and self defense. The last because the police can’t. As a former resident of Tucson I can assure readers that nobody anywhere in Az. can walk into a supermarket and buy a gun. The statement made by a supposed insider is absolutely false. Also please consider that many have guns illegally. And that’s true in the UK as well although the numbers are less because so is the population. Fact is, most Americans do not own guns. But let one deranged nut case like this commit such an outrageous act, and suddenly it’s the wild west. Well, it isn’t. And I’d like to know the source of those huge numbers of deaths by gun in the USA posted here. I question those numbers. But regardless, it is not the business of anyone else anyway. Not as long as we remain sovereign, unlike some.

Another poster said that the media in the USA were censored. So I asked for the source of the posters info.
That earned me 18 red arrows.

Well, as I said, I’m not posting their comments but here’s the link to the story. Scroll down and read the comments of the uninformed and mostly anti-American hand wringers and be prepared to get very pissed off. Maybe some of you will post comments of your own but be warned, they’re very nannyish and so really personal insulting remarks made to posters won’t get through.

Oh ... btw.  They’re also calling for Sarah Palin’s head and The Tea Party (a terrorist organization says one) and the American right.  They’re bringing up the fact that Palin had cross-hairs on states and people and so deduced from that, that she and the TP were encouraging what happened in AZ.  These experts on America and American expressions don’t understand the term having someone or something in the cross-hairs, does not mean we are suggesting they be shot.
Not always anyway.  Here’s the maddening link.

He might be for reals!

Us folks here in the red corners of True Blue New Jersey have been keeping our fingers crossed about our new governor. While The Fat Guy In Trenton, Chris Christie, is without doubt a true fiscal conservative, we haven’t really known whether he is a real Conservative conservative. Hey, this is joisey, m’kay? A state where “middle of the road” Republicans are left leaning Democrats. RINOS are not any kind of endangered species in this state at all.

But ... there may be hope for this guy Christie. Even if he isn’t fully dipped in Red, at least he has the guts to Do The Right Thing. And that’s often just as good if not better. Case in point:



NJ Gov. Christie Frees Brian Aitkens

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie gave the Aitken family all they wanted for Christmas Monday.

Christie signed a letter ordering Brian Aitken, a New Jersey man sentenced to seven years in jail for having weapons he legally purchased in Colorado, to be released from Mid-State Correctional Facility as soon as possible.

Aitken, 27, was sentenced in August to seven years after a January 2009 arrest at his parent’s home in Mount Laurel, Burlington County. Aitken’s mother called the police on him after he was distraught over a custody issue and police found handguns, hollow point bullets, and high capacity magazines in a box in the trunk of his car.

Aitken claimed he was protected under a state exemption because he was moving from Mount Laurel to Hoboken at the time. A Burlington County judge refused to allow the jury to see the exemptions, claiming Aitken’s defense team did not present enough evidence during the trial to show he was moving.

Aitken’s father, Larry, could barely speak when reached Monday, but thanked “Governor Chris Chringle.”

Christie ordered that Aitken, a media consultant, entrepreneur and graduate student, be released as soon as “administratively possible.” His father believes it might be take up to 72 hours for his son to walk out of the medium-security prison near Fort Dix.

Aitken’s attorney, Evan Nappen, praised the governor for using common sense in a case that “cried out for it.”

Governor Christie is a hero to gun owners across the nation,” he said.

On Jan. 2, 2009, Aitken became despondent when his ex-wife canceled a visit with their young son and left his parents’ Mount Laurel home in his car. His mother, a social worker, called the police out of concern and they searched his car when he returned and found handguns, locked and unloaded, in the trunk along with hollow-point bullets and high-capacity magazines.

Aitken, who purchased the guns in Colorado when he lived there, claimed that he was permitted to have the guns in his car because of a moving exemption. Witnesses had testified that Aitken was in the process of moving from Mount Laurel to Hoboken, Nappen said.

Nappen said former Burlington County Superior Court Judge James J. Morley denied three requests from the jury to see the exemptions. Morley and the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office said Aitken did not present enough evidence to prove he was moving.

Nappen said he didn’t think Christie, a former U.S. Attorney who wasn’t known as a gun-rights proponent, was thinking national politics when he made the decision. “The governor made the right decision for the right reasons,” he said.

So Aitken’s sentence was commuted, not nullified, annulled, or pardoned. That means he’s still a felon on paper, but at least he’s out of pedo-prison at For Dicks. Seeing as the judge in the case was disbarred for being a fucking whack job, Aitken’s chances for appeal/retrial/mistrial seem pretty good.

Merry Christmas Brian Aitken.

The Constitution. Haven’t you read it?

Does anybody know what movie this clip is from?

Sounds like a Democrat doesn’t he? Or a RINO.

BTW, is anyone else having problems with embedded YouTube videos actually playing?

GOP: A Pledge To America

BMEWS readers:

This is a little update on the post I put up last night.

The GOP has released the official version of it’s Pledge. It’s a 48 page Acrobat file with lots of pictures and fancy fonts and stuff; the document is 135MB large.

You can download it, or read it online, at the GOP webpage here, but with millions of other folks trying to do the same thing, it’s going to take a long time.

So I made up a quickie page and put a copy there. Go there and download it, then read it and think things through. There’s a lot more in there than the tidbits I posted on last night. This is life or death for the Republican Party, so I think it’s worth a bit of study from everyone who is going to vote.

Here is the link.

I’ve got more sanding and painting to do today, so I won’t have a chance to study it until later this afternoon. So let’s get the conversation going this evening and for however long after that it takes to decide if this is genuine and if it’s what we need or if it’s what we want.

UPDATE: I reloaded the file and made sure that it can be read if it downloads completely. It takes a while, so be patient.

Fool Me Twice, Shame On ME

GOP Legislative Agenda for 2010


Stained With Tea, or just Messing Their Britches?

imageimageimage



Rank-and-file House Republicans get their first glimpse at the GOP legislative agenda tonight, one day before the leadership team showcases the plan during a press conference and small business roundtable at a lumber warehouse in suburban Virginia.

The game plan is culled together from the Republicans’ “America Speaking Out” initiative, which solicited the online input of Americans for two months earlier in the year.

The GOP plan is divided into five, distinct policy areas: 1) the economy, 2) government spending, 3) health care, 4) government reform and 5) national security.

FOX was granted the opportunity to view the document ahead of its scheduled release.

The highlights in the economic area include:

- A move to “permanently stop all job-killing tax hikes.”

- A plan to award small businesses a tax reduction of 20 percent of business income.

- A reining-in of government “red tape.”

- A repeal of “job-killing business mandates.” This specifically refers to a provision in the health care law that requires businesses to report to the IRS any transaction over $600. Small businesses argue the requirement is cumbersome.

The highlights in the government spending area include:

- An immediate reduction in all federal spending and a cancellation of all unspent stimulus money.

- A cut in government spending to pre-stimulus and “bailout” levels.

- The imposition of a “hard cap” on discretionary spending, meaning the government can’t go above a certain level.

- A request to hold weekly votes on spending cuts.

- “End TARP once and for all.” That’s a reference to the Troubled Asset Relief Program, which Congress approved to assist banks and financial institutions with liquidity in the fall of 2008.

- Demand a net hiring freeze of all “non-security” federal workers.

The highlights in the health care area include:

- A move to “repeal and replace” the health care reform law and instead approve medical liability reform legislation.

- A call to make the “Hyde Amendment” permanent. The Hyde Amendment is named after the late-Rep. Henry Hyde (R-IL). Congress reauthorizes the Hyde Amendment every year. It builds a firewall that ensures that federal dollars are not used for abortion services.

The highlights in the government reform area include:

- A requirement that all bills lay over for 72 hours in the House before being voted on.

- The mandate that all lawmakers writing legislation must include a clause in the measure demonstrating that the bill would be “Constitutional” if enacted.

- An effort to prevent non-related bills from being packaged together.

The highlights in the national security area include:

- A requirement that all troop funding bills be “clean.” In other words, that legislation must be free of any extraneous issues.

- The demand that terrorism suspects be kept off U.S. soil.

- A call to impose sanctions against Iran unless certain security conditions are not met.

Some have likened this document to the “Contract With America” that Republicans wheeled-out on the steps of the Capitol in September, 1994 before the midterm elections. Republicans won 54 seats that year and secured control of the House for the first time since the 1950s.

The Contract With America was a list of ten specific bills that the GOP promised to pass in the first 100 days if they won control of the House.

The House eventually okayed all Contract With America items. But most of the 10 died in the Senate.

Looks to me like the RHINOS are in a ruckus. They want to stampede, but don’t know whether to run away or run things over. The Tea Party has them just as frightened as the Democrats.

GOOD. Put your money where your mouths are, fat boyz. We gave you the reigns with your Contract With America ... and you fucking muffed it. I’m still waiting for those term limits Newt. You worthless poser.

I want to see 500 BILLION in cuts and eliminated spending between today and November. Do that and some of you might - just might - survive the election. Do nothing and you’re gone. And that ball had better keep right on rolling for the next 2 years, and loooooong after that.

Message to the GOP: until you prove it 2400%, two dozen times in a row with NO WOBBLING EVER we are going to assume you are the same lying sacks of progressive socialist fat-cat shit that you’ve been for the past 10 years.

The TEA Party and the GOP

Wow! Not a single post on a Monday? I’ve got 1 hour and 49 minutes to correct that.

Here’s the deal: The MSM has been doing their evil best to tie the GOP to the TEA party activists. As if there’s anything wrong with that, but I digress.

The MSM seems to think that tying the GOP to the TEA party people would be good for their guys. You know, the socialist, anti-American party of OBowMao, aka, the First Mongrel™.

But Emperor Misha I cuts through the crap:

His Imperial Majesty has now been forced to listen to enough wimpy “conservatives” hyperventilating about the possible “dangers” of the GOP being associated with the Tea Parties and blah, blah, blech that he feels a need to set the record straight.

In view of the GOP’s historic, massive fail when it comes to acting and governing in a fashion that can be said to be even remotely conservative, witness the MediCare Free-For-All, Shamnesty and, of course, their grandest moment of fail, the McVain candidacy, just to name a few, we think it only fair to say that if there is anybody with a legitimate grievance regarding associating the Tea Party with the GOP, then it’s the Tea Party and their sympathizers.

We therefore say, firmly and with conviction: QUIT ASSOCIATING US WITH THE PARTY OF STUPID!

It is, by far, the most vile slander that has been thrown at the Tea Party, and it must stop now.

Thatisall.

Republicans, I’m thinking you need to give us a good reason to vote for you. I’m tired of voting GOP and finding I voted for Stupid. Grow some cojones, or at least a man-eating vagina like Palin, Bachman, Brewer, etc.

exZAKly

Grand Old Partisan’s Michael Zak reminds us that the renewal of the 1865 Freedman’s Bureau Act, (a forerunner of the 1866 Civil Rights Act that I wrote about the other day), was vetoed by Democrat President Andrew Johnson, and had it’s veto overridden by the Radical Republicans who controlled Congress, 144 years ago today. Thanks Mike! The Freedmen’s Bureau brought education and medical care to the former slaves across the South. Johnson’s veto of this Act, his veto of the 1866 Civil Rights Act, and his generally racist views and pro-ante bellum attitudes would later culminate in his impeachment in 1868.

He also takes the opportunity to speak truth to power and schools Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), [link to speech right here] who clamored for a seat on the racism bandwagon at the NAACP meeting the other day and said that the Tea Party has ties to the KKK.

Silly Sheila. The Klan is a Democrat institution, not a Conservative/Independent one.

It would have been far more truthful for the congresswoman to have admitted the fact that all those who wore sheets a long time ago lifted them to wear Democratic Party clothing.  Yes, the Ku Klux Klan was established by the Democratic Party.  Yes, the Ku Klux Klan murdered thousands of Republicans — African-American and white – in the years following the Civil War.  Yes, the Republican Party and a Republican President, Ulysses Grant, destroyed the KKK with their Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871.

...
Starting in the 1980s, the Democratic Party elevated a recruiter for the Ku Klux Klan, Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV), to third-in-line for the presidency.

Yes Sheila, it was your party that put a Klansman that close to the big chair.

No wonder the dems don’t want straight up history taught in schools anymore. If any black kid ever learned the truth, she’d realize quickly her people have sold their souls for 30 slices of government cheese.

I own a copy of Zak’s book, Back to basics for the Republican party. It’s a good concise read and covers a lot of history. Alright, I knew most of it already, but that’s only because I read a lot of history. I was surprised at just how anti-black Woodrow Wilson was. A real hater. They never told me that in school.
