Cripple America

My opinion: Obama and his team are in waaaaay over their collective heads. They believe the world is basically good, and because Obama is in control of the White House, the world will warm to them and we will all live together in harmony.

Except that’s not the world. Putin will outmaneuver the clueless Obama. The middle east will continue to shun American and call us the Great Satan. China is waiting for the right moment when they own all our assets before they invade Taiwan. Our response will be every bit as lame as our response was against Russia’s invasion of Georgia.

The only way Obama can make it worse is to cripple our GDP for years with excessive liberal pet programs and inflicting a nationalized banking and health care system on us while completely destroying our economy with massive deficit spending and liberal pork spending.

Operation Cripple America now in progress.

Yasser Arafat's Wife

I suppose she must have found me by googling, perhaps looking for Dale Earnhardt’s current girlfriend. However she found me, Mrs. Arafat emailed me and wants to share $6.5 billion dollars with me.

This mail may not be surprising to you if you have been following current
events in the international media with reference to the Middle East and
Palestine in particular.I am Mrs. SUHA ARAFAT, the wife of YASSER
ARAFAT,the Palestinian leader who died recently in Paris.

Poor thing. Yasser died nearly three years ago. You’d think she’d be done grieving over him by now; three years isn’t exactly recent. She goes on to say –

Since his death and even prior to the announcement,I have been thrown into
a state of antagonism,confusion, humiliation, frustration and
hopelessness by the present leadership of the Palestinian Liberation
Organization and the new Prime Minister.I have even been subjected to
physical and psychological torture. As a widow that is so traumatized,I
have lost confidence with everybody in the country at the moment.

You must have heard over the media reports and the Internet on the
discovery of some fund in my husband secret bank account and companies and
the allegations of some huge sums of money deposited by my husband in my
name of which I have refused to disclose or give up to the corrupt
Palestine Government. In fact the total sum allegedly discovered by the
Government so far is in the tune of about $6.5 Billion Dollars. And they
are not relenting on their effort to make me poor for life.

Perhaps they’re torturing her because she has $6.5 billion that was meant for humanitarian aid but her terrorist dead husband siphoned it off greedily to spend it on yachts and clothes and stuff. I’m just saying.

In case you don’t accept please do not let me out to the security and
international media as I am giving you this information in total trust and
confidence. I will greatly appreciate if you accept my proposal in good
faith. Please include your tel/fax numbers to expedite action and reply
only to my private email address mrsarafat@totonline.net

Yours sincerely,
Mrs Suha Arafat

Dang it, I wish I had read that part first. Now I’ve shared not only her request to “the security and international media” but also given out her personal email address which oddly doesn’t match the gmail address I received. Oh well.

I’d contact her and collect my portion, but I just got through writing a post about Jesus and money and collecting embezzled money from the widowed wives of terrorists just doesn’t seem right. Besides, Mr. Chan Lee of Hong Kong wants me to have part of his $17 million that he’s currently embezzling from a bank in Hong Kong.

Dear Friend,

My name is Mr. Chan Lee, I am a staff of Bank of China Hong Kong. I have a Business Proposal of $17,300,000.00 for you to handle with me from my bank.I will need you to assist me in executing this Business from Hong Kong to your country, Should you be interested please reach me on this email address (ch_19lee@yahoo.com.hk) so that I can furnish you with more details concerning this business.

Busy, busy, busy.

American Values Awards for Movies and Television

Apparently I’m not the only person irritated by the Oscars this year, dominated by sexual immorality and politically controversial left wing movies. Michael Class has started a new awards program, American Values Awards for Movies and Television, to reward those movies that are more family friendly.

LOS ANGELES (AFP) – A conservative US filmmaker, angered by the awards success of films such as the gay drama “Brokeback Mountain,” launched a rival cinema prize to honor American “moral” values.

In a year where films starring homosexual or transgender characters or those dealing with thorny political issues such as US oil interests in the Persian Gulf are dominating Hollywood’s awards season, right-wing film industry figures are hitting back at what they say is a vacuum of morality in Tinseltown.

Former dot-com entrepreneur turned movie producer Michael Class is calling on conservative media groups to support his American Values Awards for Movies and Television.

“I want media leaders with a sense of patriotism and respect for family to join with me to turn the American Values Awards into a high-profile event,” he said.

This year’s Oscars race is led by “Brokeback” and also features “Capote,” the story of gay US author Truman Capote, and “Transamerica,” about a man in the process of undergoing a sex change.

In addition, two politically-charged dramas starring George Clooney are also competing for awards gold.

“Good Night, And Good Luck,” the Clooney-directed story of US newsman Ed Murrow’s fight against the right-wing communist witch-hunt of the 1950s, and “Syriana,” about US oil interests in the Middle East.

“Skip ‘Syriana’, ‘Munich’, and ‘Brokeback Mountain’ unless your only criterion for seeing a movie is aesthetic merit,” said Class, referring also to Steven Spielberg’s contentious Middle East violence thriller “Munich”.

“They are morally confused — I don’t want my kids seeing them,” Class added.

“‘Syriana’ blames America for terrorism. ‘Munich’ confuses justice with vengeance. ‘Brokeback Mountain’? What’s positive about a film whose main character’s sexual behavior destroys a family?,” he said.

Instead of the awards frontrunners, Class, head of a tiny independent studio called Magic Picture Frame Studio, applauded the values of films including “Cinderella Man,” “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe,” “Star Wars: Episode III” and “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.”

Also honored by the new awards were “The Great Raid,” the story of US heroism during World War II, “End of the Spear,” about religion and the British film “Millions,” about a family that ends up doing the right thing after finding stolen loot.

“Cinderella Man,” starring Russell Crowe, is the saga of a depression-era US boxer overcoming adversity, while “Harry Potter” and “Star Wars” are tales about good versus evil, according to Class.

Wiping Israel Off the Map

I forgot where I found this link, but it’s spreading quickly. The United Nations held a Palestinian Appreciation Day and gave thanks for suicide bombers. On the back wall behind Kofi Anna is a map of the Middle East with Israel conspicuously missing.

I didn’t find it at Wizbang, though Jay Tea has a great article about the devoted hatred the Muslims have for Israel. I wasn’t aware that Jerusalem isn’t mentioned in the Quran, but they still lay claim to the Temple Mount as the third holiest site of Islam.

One would think that Israel could turn to the United Nations for assistance in this matter. But the UN has already made its position clear, on countless occasions. In fact, last November 29, the UN held its “Day Of Solidarity With The Palestinian People.” At that event, they held a moment of silence for “all those who have given their lives for the cause of the Palestinian People,” including terrorists, murderers, and suicide bombers. UNICEF sponsors a summer camp named after Wafa Idris, the first female suicide bomber. And they even featured a poster that, literally, showed Israel wiped off the map.

I also didn’t get it from Brutally Honest, who writes:

A minute of silence for those who’ve killed women and children on buses, hotel lobbies, cafeterias, food markets and malls for the cause of the Palestinian people.

Incredible.

And leftists think John Bolton is the problem at the U.N.

I sent this to Sean (frequent commenter, longtime friend, refuses to guest blog), and he replied with all this good commentary:

Well, did you expect any different -?

Consult your playbook:

Ezechiel Chap. 39:

39:8. Behold it cometh, and it is done, saith the Lord God: this is the day whereof I have spoken.
39:9. And the inhabitants shall go forth of the cities of Israel, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, the shields, and the spears, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves and the pikes: and they shall burn them with fire seven years.
39:10. And they shall not bring wood out of the countries, nor cut down out of the forests: for they shall burn the weapons with fire, and shall make a prey of them to whom they had been a prey, and they shall rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord God.

I’m bettin’ on Israel. If I were Iran, I’d be looking to the skies. Every time these guys take it upon themselves to push Israel into the sea, they get whipped. God be praised.

After I asked if I could blog on his behalf, Sean followed up with this. Yeah, I know he had some suggestions for me to follow up on, but lunch is over and I’ve got to get back to work:

Sure, but you may want to quote more in Ezechiel (aka Ezekiel to Protestants?) before my selected lines – , and perhaps compare it to the Israeli war of independence -1948 (five Arab armies), The Suez War 1956 (Egypt), The Six Day War – 1967 (three Arab armies), The 1968 War of Attrition (Egypt), Yom Kippur War 1973, (two Arab Armies), Lebanon Invasion by Israel 1978, 1990 Gulf War (wherein Iraq threw missiles at Israel).

They have been there, done that and won every time. You got to wonder at the thinking of the Arab states on this. Perhaps it is a ploy to keep the people riled up at something other than their totalitarian regimes. A pox on their house. I am developing no pity on the enemies of Israel.

Here’s a great picture –

End Israeli Occupation!

My Lunchtime Leisure Reading for Today

Right Wing News gives us a sample of Michael Moore quote to help us know him and love him:

“If someone did this [9/11] to get back at Bush, then they did so by killing thousands of people who DID NOT VOTE for him! Boston, New York, D.C., and the planes’ destination of California — these were places that voted AGAINST Bush!” — Michael Moore On 9/12/2001

“There is no terrorist threat in this country. This is a lie. This is the biggest lie we’ve been told.” — Michael Moore, October 2003

Buzz Machine is a relatively liberal site, but one I enjoy reading because Jeff spends more time thinking than the other liberals I’ve read, explains why Michael Moore’s film is trash.

As I walked out of the theater on the opening day of Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11, I thought (read: hoped) that even here, in the East Village of Manhattan, true Moore country, where the flick was already sold out all night, surely even here they wouldn’t fall for all his obvious, visual/rhetorical tricks, his propaganda too unsubtle for the cheapest tin-horn demagog.

Indepundit brings some American flags to hand out to anti-war protestors. Their reactions are hysterical. “Er, no thanks. I have one. At home I mean. Are you one of us?” type of thing.

Right Thinking Girl explains why she wants nothing to do with Clinton.

ex Prez, who said that he was afraid that if he admitted the truth about Monica, it would have been the end of his presidency.

Well now I’m really mad. If Clinton knew that what he had done was bad enough to end his presidency, then why is he still whining over Kenneth Starr?

Little Miss Attila gives us a link to as much liberalism as we can stand in a single paragraph:

Let us never forget that the Pax Americana of the future brings forth this calamity brought to us by a horrific onslaught, known as Shock and Awe. So far, the American state, with its unelected president, venal Supreme Court, silent Congress, gutted Bill of Rights and compliant media belies justifications given by the world’s leading apologists for the final subjugation of the Middle East, beginning with the $90bn invasion of Iraq. For one thing, the 15-minute speech delivered Monday night by President Bush leads our attention to the essential Western imperial interests. As Norman Mailer pointed out, the pro-Sharon neoconservative cabal brings about the theocrat Ashcroft’s suspension of our civil rights.

And finally, Wizbang has excellent captures from today’s headlines:

Democrats, including Terry McAuliffe, Tom Harkin and Senate minority leader Tom Daschle, are lining up to see the anti-Bush Michael Moore movie which is long on hatred for Bush, but short on truth.

Democrat John Kerry criticizes Ronald Reagan for saving us from Jimmy Carter’s economic policies.

Democrats want to burn someone in the administration for Abu Ghraib.

Democrat John Kerry tells a group of scientists that George Bush has cut spending on science but this story explains that Bush has increased science spending dramatically.

Democrat Nancy Pelosi says bush has not done enough to stop the killings in Sudan. [Funny she did not give a shit about the killing in Iraq. -ed]

Democrats working in the entertainment industry raise money for Kerry because, “The sentiment against (President) George W. Bush is so strong.”

Democrats don’t want to pass an intelligence appropriations bill. They say Republicans are not funding counter terrorism enough, even though the bill funds counter-terrorism at the highest level in history.

Democrat Bill Clinton say that asking him hard questions is “helping the far Right”

Democrat John Kerry says Bush “puts ideology over science” because Bush does not want to allow scientists to kill babies.

Democrat John Kerry criticized Bush for being appealing to conservative voters. [Damn Him! -ed]

Democrats are hiring convicted felons including people convicted of crimes such as burglary, forgery, drug dealing, assault and sex offenses to register more Democratic voters… When they get caught, they blame it on George Bush.

Democrat Al Gore recently told an audience that “the [Bush] administration did not hesitate to heighten and distort public fear of terrorism after September 11th, to create a political case for attacking Iraq.”

Democrat John Kerry claims the American middle class has been faring miserably under President Bush’s stewardship of the economy. A lie so egregious that even the USA Today calls him on it on the editorial pages.

followed by a Kerry quote that proves he doesn’t read the news:

Kerry blames Bush for partisanship in Washington

SAN FRANCISCO, California (AP) — Democrat John Kerry criticized Republicans on Wednesday […] blaming a partisan culture created by President Bush and calling his rival “the greatest divider as a president in the modern history of this country.”
