They Lie!

Wonkette, a progressive political blog, published an article a few days ago taunting and sneering at a three year old child with Down’s Syndrome. But they had sound reasons for doing so. The child in question was Sarah Palin’s disabled son Trig.

Excerpts:

Today is the day we come together to celebrate the snowbilly grifter’s magical journey from Texas to Alaska to deliver to the America the great gentleman scholar Trig Palin. Is Palin his true mother? Or was Bristol? (And why is it that nobody questions who the father is? Because, either way, Todd definitely did it).

“What’s he [Trig] dreaming about? Nothing. He’s retarded.”

Here is complete video of Herman Cain’s speech at CPAC today. Cain called on Americans to “stay involved, stay informed, and stay inspired” in working to see to it that there is a new President in the White House after the 2012 Election. Cain said liberals like Obama are seeking the destruction of the United States as we know it, wanting to turn America into the U.S. of Europe. Cain said that is not going to happen “on our watch.” He has already formed a Presidential Exploratory Committee, and will likely be a candidate for the 2012 GOP Presidential Nomination.

Andrew Klavan reveals the strategy used to silence the criticism and ideas of conservative thinkers.

 

I couldn’t say it better, so read the whole thing here:

A Sample:

For a decade, from the election of Bush 43 forward, the Left has lied and cheated as it tried to return to power. Al Gore made a mockery out of the American electoral system by being a spoilsport over Florida, which Bush indeed won by 537 votes. Dan Rather forged a document to try to derail Bush’s re-election. Twice Democrats stole U.S. senators from the Republicans. After voting to support the war to get by the 2002 election, many Democrats quickly soured on the war. The profane protests were cheered by liberals who misattributed “dissent is the highest form of patriotism”to Thomas Jefferson; the words belong to the late historian Howard Zinn.

Once in power, liberals were the opposite of gracious.

For two years now, I have been called ignorant, racist, angry and violent by the left. The very foul-mouthed protesters of Bush dare to now label my words as “hate speech.”

Last week, the left quickly blamed the right for the national tragedy of a shooting spree by a madman who never watched Fox News, never listened to Rush Limbaugh and likely did not know who Sarah Palin is.

Fortunately, the American public rejected out of hand that idiotic notion that the right was responsible.

Rather than apologize, the left wants to change the tone of the political debate.

The left suddenly wants civil discourse.

Bite me.

The left wants to play games of semantics.

Bite me.

The left wants us to be civil — after being so uncivil for a decade.

Bite me.

The Associated Press transmitted a photo from Haiti of Palin captioned, “Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, center, has her hair done during a visit to a cholera treatment center set up by the NGO Samaritan’s Purse in Cabaret, Haiti, Saturday Dec. 11, 2010. Palin arrived Saturday in Haiti as part of a brief humanitarian mission. Dieu Nalio Chery / AP”

This photo and caption set off rabid attacks on Palin from the Huffington Post, the U.K.’s Daily Mail and, of course, Palingates.

However, one can observe that the woman is white, with her brown hair pulled back in a ponytail, wearing a white shirt with a bulky scarf and dark pants.

In other photos from Saturday, Todd and Sarah Palin’s white, brunette, eldest daughter Bristol, who accompanied her parents on the trip to Haiti, is wearing the exact same clothing and ponytail as the “hair stylist” in the AP photo.

The AP photographer who sent the caption would have known that it was Bristol Palin, but by not mentioning her the AP was able to do a media hit on Palin but still be able to claim they told the “truth” with the caption.

So the story is, a daughter helps fix a loose strand of her mother’s hair, and it becomes an international scandal. Amazing. But, what we have come to expect from the Progressive Media. My Grandmother had a saying, “They’d lie even if the truth fit better.”

Of course the Progressive media, much like Bernie Madoff, assumes you’re lazy and won’t fact-check them. Meanwhile their allies, Progressive Politicians, are trying to abridge your ability to do so.

Nick Popaditch running for Representative for CA51 opens his debate with the incumbent Pelosi-bot Bob Filner by expressing his four qualifications for legislation.

1.What does his constituancy want?
2. Is it Constitutional?
3. Is it moral?
4. Is it ethical?

Now normally when a politician says anything remotely resembling this, I feel it is time to grab your wallet and jump into a bomb shelter. However Gunny Pop is a retired (not ex) Marine Gunnery Sergeant with a Silver Star, so I’m prepared to take him at his word (officers are occasionally political weasels but senior non-coms usually say exactly what they mean). And it is possibly the best concise statement of what a Representative should be doing that I’ve ever heard actually proposed.

On occasion someone will ask what my political orientation is. This is normally after engaging in the discussion on a point that we agree on, at least in broad strokes, some other topic is raised in which my position is so diametrically opposed to theirs, that they realize I’m not what they thought.

In 1961 (I was ten) I went to live with my Grandparents in a very small town (Linden, TN) in a very rural county. Grandmother was the spitin’ image of Granny Moses (Clampett) and every bit as feisty but quite a bit more urbane. Grandfather was a tough as nails old coot you would assume was a hillbilly and he wouldn’t correct you, but you would be so very wrong.

One of the very first things my grandmother did was walk me over to the County Courthouse/City Hall (a block and a half, did I mention this as a small town?) in the basement of which was the county library. She introduced me to the librarian, who as all great librarians, had the marketing skills of a crack dealer. I’m sorry that I don’t remember her name, but I remember the first question she asked this ten year old boy. “What is your favorite book?” I told her that I had read Swiss Family Robinson several times because I liked it so much. She asked a couple of more questions to make sure I didn’t mean a comic book of the story, but the full unabridged book, and then marched straight to a bookshelf picked a book from it and said, “you’ll love this one. let’s go get you a library card.” The book was Rocket Ship Galileo. That was my introduction and the beginning of discipleship to Robert A. Heinlein.

Much later when the “social liberals” of the Republican Party gave birth to the Libertarian Party, I was right there. And I stuck with it. I worked years “herding cats” as Michael Cloud terms low level Libertarian party politics. However eight years of military experience had proven to me just how small the globe really is and how futile isolationism is as a policy. I worked on Harry Browne‘s 2000 campaign for president in Atlanta. My step-kids were the pages at his event in Atlanta, my wife (at the time) was handling the registration desk and I was doing my best imitation of a headless chicken doing the “cat herding’. My disappointment in Brown’s asinine unfortunate comments after 9/11 caused me to throw up my hands and just flat quit.

Then in April of 2005 the authors of Questions and Observations released the first of five issues of The New Libertarian. I was home again. So if I surprise you by being not what you assume, before you challenge me as inconsistent click on that link and do some reading. Hell, don’t wait, click on it anyway. I may be wrong, but the TEA Party gives me great hope that Bureaucratic Establishmentarianism is on cruise control headed for a cliff.

By the time this post disappears from the front page of this blog, the blogroll will be up and the link to The New Libertarian issues will be there.

Barf Alert! But you should hear this to remind you that Obama’s media are not you friends!

On the PBS NewsHour last night, Brooks admitted that President Obama told him a year ago that he knew that the “shovel-ready project” propaganda he employed to pass the massive Porkulus bill was bullshit.

Brooks’ New York Times colleague Peter Baker reported the newsworthy admission in an upcoming Sunday magazine piece. It’s an admission that received much deserved attention on the internet this week and that invited much deserved derision from Republican critics of Porkulus.

Why didn’t Brooks report Obama’s damning admission sooner? In another serving of bullshit, he claims it’s because Baker was more skilled at getting The Won to talk on the record. Seems to me the real reason Brooks didn’t report it is because he had his nose so far up his love object’s you-know-what that he didn’t see the scoop dropped right in his lap.

Also listen to these fools attempt to analyze the TEA Party. It sounds like they are trying to phrase the Dhimmicetins excuse as “We the unwilling led by the unknowing are doing the impossible for the ungrateful, you should be thankful not kicking us out on our ear!” Yep! They really are that tone-deaf.
