The Hour Is Approaching

Yes, the hour when those who have endeavored to ruin the present and future of this country with statist legislation the public opposes is near. The hour of judgment for those who mocked, physically attacked, libeled, slandered, falsely accused, sexually taunted, and generally douched all over us even as we the people voiced our disapproval is at hand. And the hour of judgment for those who have sought to replace the freedom and opportunity woven into the DNA of this country and her people with despair, stagnation, and dependence under the guise of hope and change is at hand.

That's right, lefties, I have something for you:

Primaried RINO Accepts Defeat Gracefully and Bows Out

Did I say "RINO"? I meant this guy, since a RINO accepting a primary defeat gracefully will never happen.

They fought for us



Bring a tear to your eye it will.
My only problem is that it makes me think about the large segment of America who would think you're a duped fool for believing that message.

Hey! I Have An Answer!

No link to him, but while "true conservative" David Frum was filling in for "true conservative" Andrew Sullivan, Frummie had the sparkling idea of a one sentence mission statement for "modernized, reformed conservatism".

Yeah. From Frum. What, were David Brooks and Charles Johnson unavailable? But anyway, I have my own one sentence mission statement:

"Fuck anybody or anything with the flaming fucksword of freedom who wants to fucking limit the freedom and economic prosperity of all people and their security, be it domestically at the hands of a bloated and overtaxing bureaucratic Leviathan, or internationally, through weakening our ability to kill those who want to kill us or limit our ability to reach out and get the bad guys before they get us."

There. And I fucking didn't need four long winded and self important posts over at Sully's place to do it. And besides, fuck David Frum. Fuck that fuckgobblin with a corrosive fuckcamel's cock for thinking he can tell us what we need to think, do, and believe after spending years belittling and demeaning those of us he deems to unsavory to acknowledge. Fuck him for linking up with Andrew Sullivan to claim the high ground in the debate on our nation's future. And fuckingly fuckity fuck him for fucking being an arrogant and whiny fuckwaffle for attacking us, and then crying like a 30 cent crack whore who has to face her pimp after an unsuccessful night of business when he gets slapped around by those he insults and demeans.

Fuck you, Frummie. That is all.

Hawkins to Frum: Here is why you cannot haz

So The Twat, in his commentary on Weigel, was crying about the fact that he was denied access to the Conservative Blogads Cloud by Hawkins.  He says,

You may say: Well who cares what John Hawkins think? Reasonable point – except that Hawkins is the person entrusted by Google to determine who may join the conservative blogads cloud. (Disclosure: He decided that FrumForum could not participate. We no longer qualified as conservatives because we had criticized other conservatives, particularly Rush Limbaugh.)


The cloud is basically where, if you're promoting conservative sites or wares, or want to promote your goods or services to that audience, you can try and become a part of that package of advertisers through Blogads, and sites can choose an ad package that reflects their content. 

Hawkins administers that cloud, and knew he was going to have to respond to this at some point, and does so effectively here.  Note the, "this may become a story at some point"-type threat from The Twat and his spokesdouche.  John's response was great, as is the whole post, that must have been awesome to smack Frum like that directly.

There's always an appropriate Far Side for any situation

As Cuffy demonstrates with regard to the Dave Weigel situation. I'll have more on that later, needless to say I'm somewhat less than sympathetic to the WaPo's former Wingnuts in The Mist guy.

Yes, I miss him

Pres. Bush's inaugural Facebook address.

I'll set aside my Facebook loathing for this. I truly, deeply, from the bottom of my heart, hope that him sitting in front of that wall of books is an F.U. to Sir Paul.Yes, Mr. President, I miss you. More than I can say.

Boy, that Sarah Palin sure is a Christianist bigot who hates gays

Though you sure wouldn't know it from listening to this interview with 100% out lesbian talk show host Tammy Bruce. Innarestingly enough, Bruce's sexuality never comes up. The only reason I know that she's a lesbian is that she's a talk show fixture here in the L.A. area and isn't afraid to talk about any aspect of her life.

Agree with Dan Riehl, I support Nikki Haley for SC governor

Will "Multiple Miggs" Folks is a punk, has no fucking proof of anything, he's a sleazy little cunt who just wishes he hit that.  Now we have this mincing douchebag claiming he boinked Nikki Haley too, of course, when we all know when he says he boinked Nikki Haley, he means he has manhandled by a large hairy leather-clad man named Bruce.  And of course we have this fucking yahoo calling her a raghead now.  I'm with Dan Riehl, I'm supporting Nikki Haley for SC Governor.  The way Republicans in SC are trying to smear Haley like the MFM did Palin is sickening.  Fuck the SC GOP establishment, what a bunch of vermin, no different than the Democrats.  No. Fucking. Different.

Interview with Mike Pence

Hawkins has a decent interview with Mike Pence up, this stuck out to me,

Are you familiar with Right Wing News?

Of course.

Really? I'm surprised.

Yes, I visit you often, thanks.


The thought that a Congressman may have actually read my insane scribblings is slightly horrifying...then again, my insane scribblings make a hell of a lot more sense than most of what Congress is saying and doing anyway...most of the time.  Heh.

Yeah, just too rational, that's the ticket

Rick Moran, writing for The Moderate (yet reliably liberal) Voice claims that Utahns shitcanned Bob Bennett because he is too rational for the GOP right now.  He notes Bennett's support of the Bush Amnesty Bill, TARP and his effort to make a "compromised" sellout on socialist medicine.  He says this,

In short, it was a good old fashioned senate compromise on a thorny issue that, in another less mindlessly partisan time, would have served as a starting point for the two parties to work out their differences.


This is ridiculous, and Moran knows this, because its been hashed out eighty bajillion times in the blogosphere, at this stage we have a huge, huge split in philosophical and political thought in the US, and that's not going away.  There is no common ground to be had anymore, our philosophy is far too separated from the left's for there to be much in the way of reconciliation.  The only way to relieve tension from this philosophical and political divide is to decentralize government in a major way to relieve pressure, let the left run their states and communities their way, we'll run ours our way, but we're not going to see that happen, not as power hungry as the left is. 

Moar,

The Tea Party forces don’t want cooperation with the opposition to address the pressing needs of the people; they want war.


Oh no, we didn't ask for this war, we've been dragged into it by the left and elements of the right, and let me tell you,

http://doubleplusundead.mee.nu/files/general-william-tecumseh-sherman.jpg
We intend to make statists howl.

And any Republican incumbent viewed as less than ideologically committed to total victory will be in trouble this year.


Bullshit.  This is not about demanding pure ideological rigidity from all GOPers, this is about having certain basic expectations from GOPers, we expect Scott Brown to be RINOy, yet we supported him strongly.  This is friggin' UTAH we're talking about here, it's wingnutty wingnut central there (and God bless'em for it!), we expect that their representatives are gonna be eeeeeeeevil wingnutty wingnuts themselves, and so do Utahns.  Bennett forgot that about his state, and sold out in the name of Getting Things DoneTM, even if those things were horribly destructive, or were at least sowing the seeds of destruction.  We're not interested in Getting Things DoneTM for the sake of Getting Things DoneTM anymore, and clearly Utah Republicans aren't either. 

Bottom line is, we upgraded from giant shit sandwich to a burger in Massachusetts, and from a burger to filet mignon in Utah, and we had no reason not to, and we have nothing to apologize for.  And we're going to keep upgrading where we can, because we know what is best in life,



We aren't going away this time.

Okay, you know what? Gerson needs to quit this bullshit

So, I'm reading this WaPo piece from Michael Gerson, which amounts to a endorsement of McCain, and it's just friggin' grating on me.  He's getting antsy because JD Hayworth is closing the gap between himself and McCain in the Arizona primary.  Gerson knows McCain is in trouble, as does McCain's campaign team.  He knows the Tea Partiers poised to make a serious effort to drive out McCain. 

Gerson goes over the litany of reasons that JD Hayworth is a bad candidate...and you know what?  They're pretty much all correct.  Look, I'll say it, Hayworth is a corrupt ass, and you can't convince me that there aren't much better people for that Senate seat in Arizona.  It doesn't matter though. 

Gerson allows that McCain is an intemperate jackass,

There are reasons McCain is politically endangered. He is the Senate's most gifted practitioner of sudden, disproportionate anger. He often seems overly impressed by his own virtue. Many in Washington and Arizona would pay good money to see him humbled. His epic service is matched by epic flaws -- but an insufficient commitment to fiscal conservatism is not among them.


All I have to say to that last line is Cap & Trade.  Hey, Michael?



Gerson of course leaves out the even longer litany of reasons that McCain sucks, and the fact that McCain has been kicking conservatives in the balls every chance he's had over his entire political career.  Well, Michael, we now have the chance to give him a swift kick to the nads in return for all the years of abuse he gave us, and it looks like we might take it.  This election isn't so much about who is better, they both suck, this is about sending a warning to the GOP leadership, that they aren't invincible, and they aren't going to hitch a free ride on the wave of opposition to the Marxist left. They'll also learn that if they don't learn to respect us, they'll learn to fear us, because we'll drive them out of power, and there's nothing the GOP leadership fears more than to be driven out of their cushy leadership positions.

Then, there's this,

A primary loss might be good for McCain's soul. But it would be bad for his party and for the country.


How so Michael?  Is it the refusal to allow increased gas and oil exploration, Cap & Trade, Amnesty, McCain-Feingold, closing Gitmo, or undermining the Bush tax cuts that was so good for the party and country?  Which one was it?

At his best, McCain is precisely what a senator should be -- independent, passionate, unawed by power, unmoved by influence.


And at his worst, he's an attention whoring, arrogant, ignorant jackass with poor command of the facts on very basic issues, especially economics and the Constitution, and has no coherent political philosophy guiding him.  Your point?

Of course, I think Gerson knows all this.  In fact, I know he knows this.  Before his gig at WaPo, he was a speechwriter for Bush.  He's also an amnesty advocate, as you can see in this early WaPo piece, where he demagogues opponents of Bush's amnesty plan.  That's what is driving this for Gerson, Hayworth, if nothing else, has been a solid opponent against the efforts by both the Democrat and GOP leadership to impose amnesty on this nation.

This fucking pissed me off,

In contrast, Hayworth symbolizes the worst excesses of the Tea Party movement, without having displayed any of its redeeming fiscal virtues while in office. His candidacy presents a test. If the movement embraces politicians such as Hayworth, it will not only prove itself extreme; it will prove itself gullible.


...so in other words, in Gerson's world, we have no choice, accept McCain and endless abuse he dishes out to conservatives, accept the horribly destructive bills he regularly leads the charge for, or our opinion means nothing.  What a bunch of fucking bullshit, I'd suggest Gerson should be ashamed of himself, but I don't think he's capable.  What a bastard.

GOProud tears into Tom Campbell

For terrorist coddling and hostility to Israel,

In his failed 2000 Senate bid, Campbell called for the creation of an independent Palestinian state with its capital in Jerusalem, argued that Israel received too much U.S. aid, and attacked former President Bill Clinton for being too pro-Israel.

While in Congress, Campbell was one of only a handful of Representatives to vote against both a resolution expressing support for Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and against the unilateral declaration of a Palestinian state.

“Israel is one of the United States most important and loyal allies, and quite frankly Tom Campbell’s record and rhetoric look more like Pat Buchanan’s then Ronald Reagan’s,” said LaSalvia. “Israel is a beacon of freedom and tolerance in a sea of radically anti-gay regimes in the Middle East. You simply cannot claim to support equality of opportunity for gays and lesbians while at the same time seeking to undermine the only country in the Middle East that treats gay people with dignity and respect.”


This was a press release er, oriented towards the gay community, who Campbell is actively seeking support from.  I have zero patience for the Pat Buchanan/Jimmah Carter view on Israel, good work GOProud.

He's still America's Greatest Patriot

Not like you stupid neocons.  I've been in the trenches man, just today I set up eight proxies to hit this warmongering neocon tool's rating on his interview with the Man himself.  It's like that sometimes, the sewers you have to crawl into to make sure America's Greatest Patriot is not only heard, but then to spam the polls to make it look like cultist devo...er, lots and lots of grassroots support stands behind one Congressman Ron Paul. 

Look at how that neocon tries to trap The Good Congressman with that earmark question and the Civil War question.  Pathetic.  But the Doctor carves up those bits of idiocy like a...uh...um...a doctor with a scalpel, and the scalpel is the Constitution.  The answer was the Constitution stupid, it always was, it always is with Ron Paul.  And it's true, Lincoln and the money men up north could have bought all the slaves, it's true, Congressman Ron Paul said so.  That's why he's America's Greatest Patriot. 

Naturally the coward neocon interviewer avoided bringing up the American Empire, the Pentaverate, the Bilderbergers, the Whataburgers, the Illuminati, and of course he didn't bring up the sham that is our fiat currency system.  What an embarrassing display.  I respect the Good Congressman for his willingness to crawl into any sewer to spread the good word and beacon of light that is the Constitution on these people, but I couldn't stomach it.  Hitting polls however?  Yeah, that's easy, and it drives the neocons and globalists fucking crazy.

Look, I'll make it simple for you neocon trash, if you do not love one Congressman Ron Paul, you do not love the Constitution, and if you don't love the Constitution, you do not love America.  If you do not lust for the warm embrace of one Congressman Ron Paul, you do not love America, it's that simple.  And before you say anything, you neocon warmonger, there's nothing gay in that, just profound respect for the Constitution...and maybe ear nibbling...just a little.

No poll today, I spent eight fucking hours sitting in my bunker hitting polls in the past...eight hours, even I have my limits.

That'll work

One of the problems we're gonna have in repealing Obamacare is, well, repealing Obamacare.  The problem is you pretty much need control of the House, White House and 60 Senate seats.  The Senate seats are what are gonna make that difficult, not to mention that about a third of our current GOP Senators are complete retards.  So, what do we do?  John Hawkins has a thought on it, which I think is what we need to be looking at as a temporary fix while we try and work towards a repeal, which is defund all the Obamacare mandates

I think this is a handy stopgap measure, if we can get a defunding bill passed, naturally Obama will veto, then we can utilize gridlock, given the unpopularity of Obamacare and Democrats right now, we should be in good position to win in that gridlock, either by getting the defunding signed or by doing damage to the left's polling.  Of course if we get full 60 Senate, House and Oval Office, well, all the better.  From there we can probably start dismantling bits and pieces of Obamacare by slipping repealing measures into unrelated bills.  While I'm disgusted by that type of act generally (see Frist's ban on intarwebs gambling or any number of pork deals or attempted gun bans), I've reached that "If Hitler invaded Hell I'd put a good word in for the Devil in the House of Commons" stage, and I'm willing to bend my own rules to crush these fascist vermin on the left.  But I think Hawkins has this about right, defunding is going to probably be the first practical step in defeating Obamacare.

Studs and Duds at #CPAC10

Studs:

The biggest stud of CPAC-2010 was Marco Rubio, the first major speaker of the conference. He delivered an impassioned call for preserving American freedom from the creeping statism that would make us look like the countries people leave rather than the ones to which they flock.  He also got his digs in against the Republican establishment, saying endorsements aren’t enough to avoid a primary challenge, and one-liners aren’t enough to avoid substantive policy discussions.  Rubio and his introducer, Jim DeMint, repeatedly raised the specter of another, well, Arlen Specter.  Most of all, Rubio was a stud because of the energy he brought to the room.  Anybody there who didn’t have an emotional response to Rubio either wasn’t paying attention or had press credentials (-but I repeat myself).

Andrew Breitbart was another major stud at CPAC.  The guy is intellectually savvy and media savvy.  He called out the dinosaur media for failing to recognize the viscerally undeniable evil captured in the ACORN undercover videos.  He captures an audience’s attention like few others.  Breitbart will be a force to watch in conservative activism and punditry for some time to come.

(More Studs & Duds under the fold...)

CPAC Lies Down With Dogs, Gets Up With Fleas ( #CPAC10 )

There’s been quite a kerfluffle about Ron Paul winning the CPAC Straw Poll.


[Really? You voted for this guy?]

Well, the ACU was practically asking for it. Paul-bots are normally over-represented at CPAC, and bringing Glenn Beck on as the keynote speaker is going to bring the most rabid of the 9/12'ers out of the woodwork. Not content to just complain about the Federal Reserve, the Campaign for Liberty events were particularly aggressive this year. I made sure to attend an event on state nullification (“When All Else Fails: Nullification and State Resistance to Federal Tyranny”) featuring Thomas Woods.

One can tell Woods is a fairly smart guy, but it’s painfully obvious that he hasn’t an ounce of tact in his entire body, nor any grasp of electoral, political, or legal reality. He did take what was in my mind a completely insane topic and gave an interesting historical and philosophical defense of it... leaving out the part where it fell by the wayside and is now the favorite topic of cranks. Members of the public used the word “secession” a time or two in the Q&A session and nobody batted an eye.

Woods’ rather whimsical defense of the modern nullification/interposition movement is basically that nothing else has worked to stop government growth and encroachment, so why not try it. Well, you don’t try it because it isn’t legal and doesn’t work. (Ask anybody in a medical marijuana state who has been busted for pot.)

I'm no Constitutional lawyer, but did the “strict Constitutionalists” read this part of Article VI?:

This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.

Also at CPAC were the Oath Keepers, who have been discussed on DPUD before, and the John Birch Society, who still refuse to shy away from crank conspiracy theories.

So I say the ACU shouldn’t have been too surprised at Ron Paul’s straw poll victory. They invited all the nutters to town and gave them all the rhetorical crack cocaine they wanted. If the ACU wants a more reputable poll outcome, they should take better care to vet their sponsors, speakers, and panel topics.
