Tarnished? Vindicated is more like it.

So listening to the radio on my drive to work this morning, I hear the teaser for the top hour ABC news report. The reporter says, "Bush's surprise trip to Iraq tarnished." Of course he's referring to the "Shoe Incident" during Bush's trip. For those who haven't heard the liberal media gleefully report about this yet, basically what happened is a journalist, undoubtedly Keith Ubermoron's Iraqi counterpart, awash in BDS flung not one but both his shoes at President Bush during a press conference. Since seeing is believing:

Now, a blogger I read describes what happened to the man after this incident. Apparently, the man and his family were arrested, his wife raped in front of him and then the entire family was thrown screaming into a wood chipper.

Oops, (and further stealing from the same blogger) that's what would have happened to him had he tried something like that if Saddam Hussein was still in power instead of being a stinking, rotting corpse. But thanks to the American military and its Commander in Chief George W. Bush, he has the freedom of speech to make a total sphincter of himself.

In my mind, there is no better vindication of the liberation of Iraq. Freedom has been brought to the people of Iraq though Bush's resolve, even the freedom to be an ingrate.

Bush, as is normal for him being the (to a fault) gracious and kind-hearted man that he is, waved it off. Said something like, "All I can report is it is a size 10."

What you also probably haven't heard is that immediately after the ingrate was hauled out multiple other Iraqi journalists stood up to apologize to the President.

I'm sure everyone would prefer that it hadn't happened, no one likes a heckler, but the fact that he was even able to heckle vindicates the entire thing.

Re: Updated

In my case it's because there hasn't been anything news worthy that I considered worth an entry. Though I'll have to see how the Blago case goes

Thursday, December 4, 2008

Updated after too long.

So no one is updating, don't know why, maybe no one wants to bother to try to make this place active. Well, if we want it to go anywhere, we have to promote it. So, if you read this site or write for it, please promote. Otherwise this place might as well not exist.

Anyway. We will have more to talk about when Barack Obama becomes president. But that doesn't mean there is nothing to write about now. Zimbabwe is in crisis, and no one in the USA is doing anything. Bush, our sad sad, lame duck president who brings a disgrace to the name Republican *puts up flame shield*, is pushing through every last executive order he can, and entrenching as many of his people in civil service jobs as possible. India was attacked by some sort of terrorists, two wars are still going on. Obama is putting together a disaster of a cabinet. In other words, he is loading it up mainly with people who disagree with his own message. How we intends to change things this way, I'm not sure. He says he will make the final decision but when you surround yourself with strong willed people who disagree with you it might be hard not to be wholly influenced by them. Makes you wonder if it is actually going to be change, or Bill Clinton's third term. And somehow, even considering all this... we don't have anything to write about???

Recently, Jon Stewart compared Sean Hannity to Keith Olbermann. The liberals, of course, cried foul. "But Keith Olbermann is fair and objective", how dare you compare him to that "horrible hate monger Sean Hannity". This simply highlights how hypocritical so many liberals are. They consider themselves so smart for seeing the bias of Hannity and O'Reilly a mile away, but when it comes to people like, Maddows and Olbermann who are the liberal doppelgangers of Hannity/O'Reilly respectively, it shows that they can't see the forest for the trees. They only consider something objective if it agrees with their values, and consider anything subjective if it doesn't agree with their values. In other words, they need to look in the mirror and realize what hypocrites they are. And yes I am speaking in generalities, but anyone who seriously thinks that I am talking about every single liberal, or has not seen the hypocritical disagreement these people have with Jon Stewart is not even fooling themselves. Wake up morons.

Also, in the news recently, apparently South Africa might finally get off it's collective ass and do something about Robert Mugabe's tyrannical regime government. The inflation in Zimbabwe has reached the level of 2.3 million percent, though some outside economists reckon it is somewhere around the level of 4 quadrillion, which last I knew wasn't even a number. If your inflation is so bad that people have to make up numbers to estimate it, your economic stewardship is probably not the best course for bringing your country out of crisis. And while Mugabe may try to blame others for his failure, he is the "president for life" and has ruled ever since he bravely saved the country from the evil Europeans and gave the land to his cronies the much deserving native people of Zimbabwe. Thabo Mbeki (if you don't know who he is go look it up) enabled Mugabe. Now that Mbeki is gone perhaps South Africa will actually do something, at this point, with the Zimbabwean military going on rampages through the street and inflation so high one would probably need a uhaul to carry the money necessary to buy a loaf of bread, the only reasonable option is probably to invade, and pretty much start things over, because lets face it, at this point the only thing that's going to save Zimbabwe is drastic action. And leaving the man in power responsible for this mess is at best, only going to make things work. Get a clue South Africa, invade, it's not like they have the resources to stop you, the world, and the Zimbabwean people will thank you for it.

Meet Joe Dirt

This is the exchange that started it all...

Multiple interviews followed...

So what did this event demonstrate? It ripped the mask off of Obama's socialism. It revealed him to be the ultra-left socialist that many knew him to be. More than that, it revealed to the great unwashed middle, those who think American Idol is more important than who runs the free country and just recently began to pay attention just who Obama really is.

How dare a private citizen question the Obamessiah! How dare an American citizen exercise his free speech and question a politician about his policies!

So, twenty-four hours later we know that "Joe the Plumber" is really named Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, he goes by his middle name. Big deal, so does my Bro-in-law. I've thought about doing it myself. So what if his real name is Samuel? Barack's real name includes Hussein.

We know he's 34, he's been divorced, he owes back taxes (so does Obama's treasury advisor). We know he once lived in Alaska. We know he may tangentally be related to a relative of Charles Keating of the Keating 5 scandal. (Quick sidenote, McCain was exonerated in that and as the sole Republican charged, left in the ethics complaint in order to give it a bipartisan spin) Does that really matter? Not to me...

We know Joe doesn't hold an actual plumbing license. We know that the local Obama-supporting Union says he doesn't have a license...then again, neither does the union offical, Mr. Joseph. Now Joe says, "He doesn't need one." A quick read of the Ohio Dept. of Commerce License req page would seem to agree.

Division of Industrial Compliance, issues state commercial licenses to the following contractors: electrical, HVAC, hydronics, plumbing, and refrigeration. To receive a state license, an applicant must meet the following requirements: 1) be at least 18 years of age; 2) be a United States citizen or a legal alien-must provide proof of being a legal alien; 3) either have been a tradesperson in the type of licensed trade for which the application is filed for not less than five years immediately prior to the date the application is filed, currently be a registered engineer in this state with three years of business experience in the construction industry in the trade for which the engineer is applying to take the examination, or have other experience acceptable to the appropriate section of the board;

From the union article: Wurzelbacher registered as an apprentice with the Ohio State Apprenticeship Council in November 2003, according to Dennis Evans, spokesman with the Department of Job and Family he's a month short of the required five years to even get his license. Not to mention, in any trade unlicensed people work for licensed ones all the time. When I worked in New York City as a suspended scaffolding rigger, I didn't have a license. I had a permit to work under a licensed Master Rigger. Now if I can work without a license in NYC, the Liberal Mecca of the Eastern seaboard, in a trade where people's lives literally hang on my work, I think that someone who unblocks a toilet can work under someone else's license in Ohio.

This issue isn't who Joe the Plumber is, it's what Obama said. And the Messiah and his cultists know it. That's why Joe must BECOME the issue and must be destroyed!

Claims exist that Joe was a Republican plant. One problem with that, Obama came to Joe's neighborhood, Obama came up to Joe to shake his hand, answer his question. Unless the McCain campaign has plants lined up at every intersection that Obama is touring, the only way Joe's a plant is magic of Rovian proportions. Karl Rove, you magnificent bastard!

Even if Joe was a plant, SO FREAKIN' WHAT?!

Remember this?

I'm sure you do. George Allen's campaign nosedived after this. And the object of his statement was a Democrat plant. The videotaker wasn't the issue, the issue was what Allen said!

Likewise, Joe is not the issue, what Obama said is the issue. "Spread the wealth around" Wealth redistribution. Marxist Socialism at its finest.

Take note America, this is a preview of what is coming. Challenge the Lord Messiah, Barack Obama and you will pay the price.

Every secret, every skeleton, every dirty joke you ever told will be exposed. You will be declared a racist, your livelyhood will be taken.


What do you expect from a Chicago thug-itician?

Joe, I'm sorry for the sithstorm you're going through right now. You wounded the Messiah, that cannot be allowed to stand.

America, meet Joe Dirt.

Update: McCain's defending Joe. This needs to go into an ad and pronto...

The Messiah: Obama, Obama!

Morning, everyone.

I'm an avid fan of Glenn Beck, who I find immensely amusing and fun to watch. Last night, he released this new video, with a familiar tone to it. Anyone here remember Soviet Russia? Sadly, I'm sure we all do. Well, this video combines the ideals of Soviet Russia and the ideals of the Socialist better known as Obama.

While this video is a joke, created by the brilliant minds at Glenn Beck’s studio, it does put some prospective into what we may be facing with an Obama Presidency:

While you all watch that, I’ll go weep in the corner at the idea of what America is facing. The Russian subtitles might be a bit much, but they serve a point.

Enjoy the video, Comrades.

Barack Obama: "The Great Uniter"

So we have all heard the constant rhetoric from Obama and his supporters, mainly concerning his supposed ability to unite the nation and bring us all together. In fact it was this rhetoric that first got him national attention at the democratic convention in 2004. He talked about how their is no red America, no Blue America, there is only the United States of America. He goes on regularly to explain how there is no Asian America, no Black America, no White America, no Hispanic America, there is only the United States of America. He talks about how he will reach across the aisle, and bring together people of all ideologies, all walks of life. He talks about how he will bring together people of all races and cultures and unite the country.

But what reason do we have to believe any of this? Barack Obama was the 16th most liberal in 2005, the 10th most liberal in 2006 and the most liberal senator in the entire senate in 2007. Most of 2008 he has spent campaigning. When called out for this by John McCain, Obama asserted that he was bipartisan because he had once worked with Tom Coburn. The problem with this statement is that they bill Obama worked on was so completely non-controversial it can hardly be considered reaching across the aisle. Obama also worked on Nuclear safety with various people from both parties, once again, not controversial at all. That can hardly be considered bipartisan. He spends all of his time on the stump, blaming every single problem in the country on the Republicans, and saying any Republican in office would be four more years of the same disaster; of course he conveniently leaves out the fact that the current congress has approval ratings worse than George W. Bush and is led by the democrats. At his convention his speakers, his running mate especially, spent most of their time blaming every single problem in the country on the Republicans and George W. Bush especially. This is the man whom we are supposed to believe will united the country and reach across the aisle to the other side.

Congressional approval ratings are by some estimate 10%, which is just plain pathetic. Most democrats don't even approve of the current congress, and they have majority control. Yet Obama and his supporters are blaming everything on the Republicans, and we are supposed to believe that Obama is going to unite the country. We are supposed to believe that a man who pals around with William Ayers of the Weather Underground, the radical black liberation theology pastor Reverend Jeremiah Wright (who is known for saying "God damn America"), and Louis Farrakhan, a white hating man who the Jewish people once dubbed as "Black Hitler", is going to unite the country together as one and reach across the aisle to work with Republicans and people from all walks of life? Why in the world would we have any reason to believe such nonsense? Not only is there no evidence that Obama is a bipartisan uniter, there is evidence against him being a bipartisan uniter.

Don't get me wrong, it would be great if we could have a president who was truly a bipartisan uniter. Perhaps one who has a record of working with people on the other side. A record of looking for endorsements even of people he disagrees with knowing that they all share a common goal. A man who helped sponsor legislation that made his own party very angry with him because he thought it needed to be done and would not be a coward for the sake of political gain. A man who has worked on immigration reform that he caught a lot of flack for because he thought it was the right thing to do. Perhaps a man who has worked with some of the most liberal people on the other side of the aisle, including Senator Edward M. Kennedy, the "lion of the senate". A man who truly cares about this country and knows we are the greatest country on earth. A man who has fought and suffered for everyone in this country whether they be White, Black, Asian, Hispanic, Republican, Democrat, male or female. A man who has always put his country first and partisanship last, who has done what is right for the country and not right for his political gain. If you, like me, would like to have a man like this in the White House, then you don't have far to look. I am speaking of course, of Senator John McCain.

"That One"

So it seems one of John McCain’s lines last night, which involved referring to Barack Obama as “that one,” when speaking about who voted for an energy bill back in 2005, has caught a lot of attention. Apparently some ABC staff (and apparently readers of, not that I’d take their opinion as anything worthwhile) view it as racist, and that “folks are going to remember that.”

I’m sorry, but Obama was anything other than half black, we would not have seen any comments or viewpoints like this. Someone may claim McCain is using racial comments to try and break voters from Obama, but it’s far easier to see that Obama is trying to gain sympathy votes by playing the race card. What makes it even more amusing is that many Obama supporters refer to Obama as “the one”! If people are going to play these stupid games, don’t make hypocrites out of yourselves.

As someone who is half minority himself, I don’t live to pick up everything that could be considered a racial comment. Why? Because I don’t care, and because playing race cards makes someone just as bad as the person who made the comment, even if it’s a comment that’s actually intended to be racist.

Just the same, in this case, there was no comment that was actually racist. Just over actors and supporters of a candidate that, no matter what context something is used, they try to use it against those who originally said it.

Delusion? Very much so. You want to heal the "racial divide" everyone says is out there? Playing the race card isn't going to do so.

Beyond Political Lines – My Love for America

I realize this blog is built of the ideals of party lines and ideologies, but as an American, I also realize that, no matter how far apart our parties may be, there is one thing we, as a people, can connect on…

Some might consider this world shattered. We hear so much on how our values are failing; our society lost – lost among party lines, ideologies, and viewpoints – which seem to take forefront over what we should consider and hold dear: America. As Americans try to cope with his time of strife and conflict, many seem to think the easy way out would be to adopt exotic new ideals on where we should head, looking to the future, but during this time, we must find a way back to our traditions and values. We are more similar than most of wish to admit, yet we seem to try and stand so far apart. The “golden age” is lost, many seem to say. A time of prosperity and united countrymen, of what this country was built upon, and, for. Yet, looking at the last one hundred years, where was that golden age that so many seem to say is lost? It’s out there; simply mixed with times of great troubles, and times of great conflicts. It’s always been there, no matter what we may face, but, nevertheless, we must look to our past, to form a great future.

Americans are, without doubt, some of the greatest people on this planet – free, yet, not always realizing how proud they should be for what we have built. People flock to our country, for its opportunities, for the American Dream. It’s very much alive, but if we do not realize what we have, we will only stand to lose it all. We may have problems at hand, but we must look to the foundations of our country, and gain strength and pride from it, and realize that, while we will always have party lines and differences, as Americans – we can become one. No different than one another – a united force, one that can build our future into something greater than we’ve ever seen in our past. Not from an idea brought on the wings of change, but a view brought from our past, to secure a place for our future. Traditions – of American Spirit. Values – of American Pride.

Regardless of its hardships, America is, has, and always will be, the greatest country this world has ever known, and will ever see. No matter what we must endure, and no matter what we are tested with, America will indeed succeed, and learning from our past will help better equip us for what we may face in our future, and even then, if we hold the traditions and values of America near, and we work together, we can unite for the greater good, and face any foe – any threat – and we will succeed. It all comes down to us all, if we, as people, are mature and clear minded enough, to understand how our history, traditions, and values, are the most important things we must pass down through the ages, to protect this great nation, if we do in fact hold it dear enough.

I haven’t always shown my pride – there were times I took everything in this country for granted, and thought nothing of it. As I mature, I see more and more of why and how glad I am to be American, and how this country is, and always will be, one of my greatest loves. I’ve come to realize what the truth is behind the American dream. Even with party lines and political ideals, there will always be a place where I am more than proud to be American, and understand, before anything else, that I, we – indeed, all of us – can connect on a level above our differences, and unite on one thing. I know that we will always move on from our hardships, and move towards to a better future – prosperous and free. America is the greatest land that the human race will ever know, and it will always be.

No matter where we end up, I will always love this country, and will forever be proud, to be an American.

Annuit cœptis - E pluribus unum - Novus ordo seclorum.

In closing, people who know me know my views as a Republican are strong and partisan, but for my own convictions. When it comes to people in general, whether they agree with me or not, if they are a true American, they are a friend in my book, regardless of political ideals, and if need be, I'd work to see the betterment of the nation, regardless of party.

Age is not the issue...

Barack Obama was 8 years old when William Ayers was setting bombs. So freakin' what?! No one has ever claimed that Obama assisted Ayers, the issue it brings to the fore is: Obama's judgement.

Would you work on a board promoting educating children with OJ Simpson? How about (hypothetically since one is dead and the other is in jail) Timothy McVeigh or Eric Rudolph? Would you launch your political career at their house? Accept their campaign contributions?

Of course not. And why not? Because they are unrepent criminals and murderers. OJ got off because of lousy prosecution and a jury that gives new meaning to the phrase "star-struck".

Ayers was never convicted either, why? Prosecutorial misconduct. Not innocence. In his own words, he is "Guilty as sin, free as a bird."

So then, is it "pathetic", "mudslinging" or "a smear" to ask why Barack Obama lacks the common sense judgement to shun unpunished, unrepentent terrorists and murderers?


Hello, I am Greg, one of the contributors. I am a tenth cousin of Abraham Lincoln, the greatest president of the United States. I am very open minded and willing to discuss almost any issue, and look at all points of view. This is not to say that my beliefs and principles do not remain strong, just that I will give all sides fair play when possible. You can also expect me to respond if you post in the comments, to the best of my ability.

I am also a Republican of course.

I will be posting something soon, stay tuned.

Chi-Town-Style Politics ... In Ohio (updated)

So, it seems that there is word coming out of, surprise, surprise, the battleground state of Ohio, that their early voting system has not been properly meeting requirements as to who can officially vote, and also has a conflict in the required time to be eligible to vote. So, this potentially means those who are underage, illegal, or a convicted felon, may be able to cast their vote for who they’d like to see as the next President.

The issue is that the new Ohio system, which was created about three years ago, allows anyone to register between September 30 and October 6, 2008, and at the same time, it allows them to cast their ballot. This seems to be in conflict with the state requirement that people must be registered at least 30 days, mainly to confirm eligibility for voting, before being able to, you know, actually vote. Yet, if the vote is already cast, how do they confirm it was an eligible vote? And then how would Ohio officials even track down an absentee vote out of the many I’m sure they have received, if they confirm votes were illegally made? What’s going to keep them from simply counting them all, and then using the excuse that they had to count them, to ‘ensure civil liberties were protected’? Or simply from disgruntled Democrats that are so very willing to point the finger and claim “stolen election” after the Florida debacle?

Now, I’m not at all a conspiracy theorist, but I’m also not easily taken, and this new system that Ohio has seems to be a loophole-laden disaster waiting to happen. We’ll have to see what comes of it, if anything, before the election, less than a month away.

And who said this kinda stuff only happens in Chi-Town?

Update 1:

So it seems that the Chicago-style have come with "underwhelming result."

Early vote fail(fraud), anyone?

Blame Game

So, the market's in crisis and there's blame a plenty to go around. But let's face facts here. The majority of it goes straight into the laps of liberal Democrats.

It began in 1977, when Democrat Jimmy Carter was President when the Community Reinvestment Act(CRA) was passed. Simple, noble-minded bill. The law mandated that each banking institution be evaluated to determine if it has met the credit needs of it's entire community", in other words, it outlawed "redlining" which is basically a form of profiling, only loaning to areas where there was no risk of the loan not being paid back.

Then in 1995, Democrat President Bill Clinton, with the idea of extending the American Dream of home-owner ship to all income ranges, including the ones who couldn't afford it, revised the bill to now require that banks make loans to people with little, no or bad credit. Not only require it, but also increase the number of CRA loans to low-income aka, the people who probably wouldn't be able to pay it back. It allowed companies to now securitize these CRA loans aka "sub-prime mortgages"

The first company to do so was Bear Stearns.

And they were so happy about it back then, quoting the article: "CRA loans are loans targeted to low and moderate income borrowers and neighborhoods under the Community Reinvestment Act of 1977.

'The securitization of these affordable mortgages allows us to redeploy capital back into our communities and to expand our ability to provide credit to low and moderate income individuals,' said Jane Henderson, managing director of First Union's Community Reinvestment and Fair Lending Programs. 'First Union is committed to promoting home ownership in traditionally underserved markets through a comprehensive line of competitive and flexible affordable mortgage products. This transaction enables us to continue to aggressively serve those markets.'"

From the beginning this was opposed by many and in 2003, Republican President George W. Bush proposed a complete overhaul, called by the New York Times as "...the most significant regulatory overhaul in the housing finance industry since the savings and loan crisis a decade ago.", of the CRA requiring the two largest sub-prime mortage holders, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae (boy all these names sure sound familiar) submit to greater oversight and begin to take action on securing this debt.

Quoting from the article: "The plan is an acknowledgment by the administration that oversight of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- which together have issued more than $1.5 trillion in outstanding debt -- is broken. A report by outside investigators in July concluded that Freddie Mac manipulated its accounting to mislead investors, and critics have said Fannie Mae does not adequately hedge against rising interest rates."

Guess what happened? The legislation was blocked by a party line vote, opposed by Democrats. Why? Quoting the NYT again: "Significant details must still be worked out before Congress can approve a bill. Among the groups denouncing the proposal today were the National Association of Home Builders and Congressional Democrats who fear that tighter regulation of the companies could sharply reduce their commitment to financing low-income and affordable housing.

"These two entities -- Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- are not facing any kind of financial crisis,'' said Representative Barney Frank of Massachusetts, the ranking Democrat on the Financial Services Committee. "The more people exaggerate these problems, the more pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in terms of affordable housing."

Representative Melvin L. Watt, Democrat of North Carolina, agreed.

''I don't see much other than a shell game going on here, moving something from one agency to another and in the process weakening the bargaining power of poorer families and their ability to get affordable housing,'' Mr. Watt said."

In fact, a few weeks later, Barney Frank, Democrat, told the AP: "I don't think we face a crisis. I don't think we have an impending disaster." In a way he was right, the disaster wasn't took about 5 years.

Two years later, in 2005, Republicans tried again, one of those I might add was Arizona Senator John McCain. And again it was blocked by Democrats, quoting Minority (now Majority) Leader Harry Reid: "The legislation from the Senate Banking Committee passed today on a party-line vote by the Republican majority, includes measures that could cripple the ability of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to carry out their mission of expanding home ownership...While I favor approving oversight by our federal housing regulators, to ensure safety and soundness, we cannot pass legislation that could limit Americans from owning homes and potentially harm our economy in the process"

It was opposed by Democrat Senator Chris Dodd, ranking member of the Banking Committee and I might add, highest receiver of donations from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. #2? Senator Barack Obama, Democrat, Illinois who didn't lift a FINGER to head off the crisis that now confronts us today.

Bush and the Republicans tried to fix this looming Democrat-created problem two times in the last 5 years and were blocked at each and every turn by Democrats in Congress.

You wanna lay blame? Lay it where it belongs.


Reporting for Duty

And no, I'm not giving a hypocritical salute like Lurch Flipflopperson did in 2004. I'm Rogue, one of the authors. My speciality is sarcasm, I employ it quite often, though depending on the tone of my post, sometimes it's more apparent.

I'm conservative as well.

I may repost a column I wrote on my personal blog here regarding the economic crisis currently facing the country so you can get a taste of my writing.

I'll be around.

Signing off.

The Conservative Column

Welcome, everyone, to The Conservative Column!

I am one of your authors, JM, who will be working as part of this grassroots effort to bring some balance to the mainstream, liberally leaning blogs of the interwebs. As a Conservative, I'll be reporting and writing opt-ed pieces on the biggest news coming from Washington and around the world, and yes, a Conservative position will be taken upon most of them, so heads up on that.

A little more into the blog itself: there are a few other authors to this blog, and I'm fairly sure, soon enough, they'll make themselves known. The blog itself will have both serious tones and satirical tones, depending on the story, and of course, it will be point-of-view-based, so the writer will take the position they choose, and the writing will reflect it. We’re not simply reporting the news; we’re taking our own position on it.

Of course, since us Conservatives are oh-so-very patriotic; we want to see posts from both sides of the aisle. We want to know what the Left thinks of our stance, and we'd like to see constructive feedback in the comments when possible.

In any case, welcome to The Conservative Column! We look forward to bringing you many interesting posts both now and in the future!
