TEA Party: A warning

Cocktail Party*: Nothing to see here, move along.

Dhimmi Party: A roadmap**

*I used to call these the establishmentarian Rethuglicans, but this has come into more common usage and means the same group (the rethuglicaans that spend like dhimmis in order to keep getting invited to the DC cocktail parties) I’ll go with the new term.

**I think the Cloward-Pivens plan took that approach

The crew at “Morning Joe” seem surprised and shocked when Niall Ferguson points out the obvious. Obummer does not have a cohesive foreign policy beyond feel-good speeches and his long term plan to weaken us economically enough that we transform from “The Great Satan” to “The Great Joke (or Whipping Boy, take your pick) granting us the safety of insignificance.

I found it humorous when Ferguson answered the question about the administration’s foreign policy talent by using his interviewer Mika’s daddy Zbigniew as the standard that no one met. In chess that is called “a fork”.

While I have mixed feelings about Zbigniew Kazimierz Brzezinski, To me he is a democrat that is like Zell Miller (albeit with a totally different accent). He warned the Democrats that their pacifism was alienating part of their historical base. He worked for Kennedy, Carter and Reagan. The Kremlin blamed him or John Paul’s election as Pope. He became a US citizen in 1958 at the age of 30. Why can’t the USCIS find us more immigrants like him?

The Constitution cannot be understood because it’s so old?

The canard that the Constitution cannot be understood is a favorite of those who wish to find things that aren’t there and deny things that are. The 1803 Marbury vs. Madison case, in which the Supreme Court set itself up as the arbiter of the Constitution, and the following cases where the Court ignored the letter of the Constitution in order to find new provisions and dismiss existing ones has led directly to this.

The six pages of the constitution are simple enough that a high school student that couldn’t figure it out should not graduate. Is the language a bit archaic? Yes, I’ll grant that, if you’ll grant that the failure of the public schools to teach English. It’s certainly easier to understand than the deliberately obtuse 2500 page bills passed in the dead of night designed to restrict the liberties protected by the Constitution, in order to elevate “pubic servants” to the new aristocracy.

Bill looks at the critical distinction between legal and Illegal immigration, and how apologists for illegal immigration end up hurting the legal immigrants that have always been the backbone of America.

Reader John Miller’s email to Instapundit in reference:

ROBERT GIBBS: Efforts to repeal ObamaCare won’t get past the Senate.

Yes, you make the Senate vote on ObamaCare again.

You make them vote on a lot of things.

Were I in Boehner’s shoes, I’d be preparing a long list of very short, very simple bills, each covering a single issue with broad public support.

Race-neutral enforcement of civil-rights laws.

Sanctioning ’sanctuary cities’.

Voter ID.

Forcing the DOJ to implement the voter-roll cleanup provisions of HAVA.

And so on. Single-issue bills that can be read by any voter in five minutes.

Run them through the House and, should a few more of these Senators staring 2012 in the face decide they don’t dare oppose the bills, we get to see Obama double-talk his way through vetoing motherhood and apple pie.
