6 Progressive Members Of Congress From Ohio Support Destruction Of Israel

Soros supported J Street, a fake Israeli support group, has been busy drumming up support for a false war crimes report about Israel and supporting Hamas in the halls of Congress. Right here in Ohio we have some interesting characters supporting them.

The Honorable Sherrod Brown (OH)

The Honorable John Boccieri (OH-16)
The Honorable Steve Driehaus (OH-01)
The Honorable Marcy Kaptur (OH-09)
The Honorable Mary-Jo Kilroy (OH-15)
The Honorable Dennis Kucinich (OH-10)

From Yid With LID

BOMBSHELL! Soros-Controlled J Street Tried To Gain Congressional Acceptance of UN Report Accusing Israel of War Crimes

Granted, Dennis the Menace is Captain of any tin foil brigade and Marcy Kaptur, who wouldn't support America or a truly good cause if her life depended on it, are obvious members, but  Boccieri, Driehaus and Kilroy are in iffy reelection bids. Of course, all three would and do take money from anyone for reelection, but joining this group of haters is a clear sign of their desperation. Sherrod? What can one say about Sherrod other than his voice is probably as hoarse as it is from too many anti-Israel chants.
What a group of maroons.
(I find it ironic that spellcheck wants to change Hamas to Hams. I blame Bush)

OH, Obama Said "Buck Up", Phew!

I thought he was finally being brutally honest in his assignment to the kids.

Obama Administration Scolds Base, Urges Dems to 'Buck Up'

I think he said the other right after the inaguration because they got right to it.

Lots of work today, but I did find out by email that I can get 90% off Viagra.

I got that going for me.

"Shame On You Liz Cheney. Go Plan Your Father's Funeral"

So says the twisted Mike Malloy, American radio's answer to Baghdad Bob.

Malloy has packed so many lies and progressive points into less than 4 minutes he would have to spend a year apologizing to all that deserve an apology. What a loser. His career highpoints are CNN and Air America. His career low points are, well, his career.

Take America Back

It is time to stop our self-feeding obese government. If RINOs go down with Democrat liberals and progressives so be it. It is a truism from Ronald Reagan that a politician that agrees with us 80% of the time is not our 20% enemy, but each voter will have to weigh their votes carefully as to not make things worse. The goal is to improve our lot as a society.

Here in Ohio, Chris Redfern (Tea Party members are "teabaggers" and "f*ckers") has instructed his candidates like Strickland, Fisher and Space to accuse Republicans of looking to the past instead of looking the future. That's fine and in some minds it is a good line, but those that forget the past are doomed to repeat it.

Socialism and communism has failed where ever it has been attempted. Redfern doesn't want to apologise for his descriptions of Americans nor does he want to talk about the failures of the past he wishes to impose on us now and in the future. Being a child in a man's body must be frustrating.

Pelosi: Attacks On Boehner Really All About ME!

Narcissistic Nancy is upset that there might be others who have been attacked more the she! The truth doesn't matter, it is the attacks!

Pelosi: Attacks on Boehner don’t compare to GOP attacks on me

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Democrats’ criticism of GOP leader John Boehner (Ohio) does not compare to the personal attacks Republicans have levied against her for years.

She then commanded:

“America’s middle class will have a tax cut. It will be done in this Congress. There is no question about that,” the Speaker said.

And with a large poof of smoke all that remained around her throne was the sound of a cackle whispering through the air. Aides to the Speaker conceded that a vote is unlikely as they served cake for all to eat.

UPDATE: An email said that my headline made them think that it was Pelosi who liberals say is the girlfriend. I can only say, Eeewwww.

UPDATE II: A Boehner aide said the liberal rumors about Boehner are "Bullsh*t."

Colbert Used As Smokescreen By Dems To Bury Christopher Coates' Testimony Of Obama DOJ Lies?

It's classic Rahm and it appears to have worked. Colbert is all over the news with his unfunny shtick and Coates' testimony appears to be a second-class story. This is necessary, as with the Boehner story, because Coates actually corroborated former Justice official J. Christian Adams' allegation that the DOJ dismissed the charges against the New Black Panther members (for voter intimidation) based solely on race, not the law. In short, their are civil rights for some and not for others. Sounds Obamaesque, eh?

Come on, these guys were just concerned citizens and Colbert can be really funny which is what Congress needs right now. Some levity. Some relaxing from all the hard work they've been doing. All that heavy lifting giving away money they don't have. It is exhausting. Right?

I Love Watching Rachel Maddow. She Is So Delightfully Stupid

Watching the Maddow is like watching a fool slip on a banana peel over and over with the result never varying. Our favorite Rhodes Scholar uses her distinct brand of pedantic humor to amuse herself and her small audience on MSNBC. As she has progressed in the honing of her scholarly/humorous skills she has employed facial tics and demonstrative hand motions to assist her sardonic facial expressions. All creating a vortex of boredom for watcher and watchee. Facts which might seem so important seem to slip by with nary a notice which allows for a cute performance of juvenile stagecraft that seems to delight herself to no end.

I wish her well in the next profession she opts to pursue.

How Slimy Will Leftists Get To Stem The Political Tide Against Them? Boehner Update

They will get Stark raving loony and slimy. That's how low they will go.

Mike Stark of Stark Reports got in Minority Leader John Boehner's face as he left the Pledge press conference this morning and asked him if he had been sleeping with a lobbyist. Boehner just walked past him with a disgusted look on his face.

Stark is normally a pretty low brow guy. Normally he shows about the same intellect as an Ed Schultz, but he finally got lower than low. Why? Because Stark said he had heard the rumor around town? Or because he got his marching order to try and trash Boehner from the hacks in the WH and the DNC? Who cares.

Boehner is a happily married man who has voted in ways that Stark and his masters don't like, so, why not spread some lies around to see if they can hurt him. It's their MO. What is not their MO is fact checking. Like checking that Boehner has 24/7 security who would know about something like this. No, they're not like the security Clinton, Gore, Spitzer, Jackson and Edwards had because unlike those detailed to protect that crew, Boehner's security detail is treated with respect and in turn they respect him. If they didn't, this would have been news long ago, but it didn't and isn't because it is a bald lie. A bald lie spewed for political purposes, because the Left is pretty pissed off that now the voters know they were lied to in the last election and they want nothing more to do with the Progressive Left's agenda.

Scum like Stark always hide behind some statement like, "Hey, I'm only reporting what I heard" as if they are real reporters. In my opinion, they are just common trash that allow themselves to be used in hopes it will get them something later on. If I was Boehner I'd get them something right now, like a punch in the face, but that's why Boehner will be Majority Leader and I never will. He knows when to not get in the gutter with the pitiful likes of a Stark.

BTW, I won't link to crap like Stark wrote because that's what he wants. If you're interested, go find it yourself. I'd start searching using terms like loser, trash, lackey, liar, creepy, muck, childish ............

UPDATE: Speaking of childish, it appears that Stark also writes for the Huffpo and Kos gangs. Maybe Markos can present another of his "accurate" polls on the subject and Ariana can write an Op Ed piece on truth in reporting. Where do they get writers like this? The city morgue?

Howard Pyle, Pirates, Parents And Memories

Howard Pyle, Book of Pirates (1902)

Howard Pyle was born in Delaware in 1853. He studied at the Arts Student League in New York and the Pennsylvania Academy.

Pyle contributed to a number of magazines including Harper's Monthly and Scribner's Magazine. He also illustrated books such as The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood (1883) and the Book of Pirates (1902).

Pyle has been described as the "father of American illustration" because of the enormous influence his work had on other artists. Pyle taught at the Arts Students League of New York, the Drexel Institute, and his own art schools at Chadd's Ford and Wilmington. His students included Maxfield Parrish, N. C. Wyeth and Frank Schoonover. Howard Pyle died in 1911.

I still have many of the books my parents gave me. The Book of Pirates is the only one that both my parents inscribed to me. There were many other books that covered history, manners (I, uh, cough, followed it) and other sensible subjects and I remember the content. Of books such as the Book of Pirates by and illustrated by Pyle I not only remember the contents, but the book itself. Maxfield Parrish, N. C. Wyeth (father of Andrew Wyeth) and others may have written some books, but they were mainly illustrators who shaped how young people saw the world. What a great and good thing.

Is E. J. Dionne one of the most successful scams in American journalistic history?

Ah, the Tea Party is really small, in fact, merely "a sliver of opinion on the extreme end of politics." So, is the Tea Party larger or smaller than the sliver of opinion on the extreme end of politics of, say, the media arm of the DNC which is also known as the mainstream media?

The Tea Party Movement is a Scam

Is the tea party one of the most successful scams in American political history?

Before you dismiss the question, note that word "successful." Judge the tea party purely on the grounds of effectiveness and you have to admire how a very small group has shaken American political life and seized the microphone offered by the media, including the so-called liberal media.

But it's equally important to recognize that the tea party constitutes a sliver of opinion on the extreme end of politics receiving attention out of all proportion with its numbers.

Yes, there is a lot of discontent in America. But that discontent is better represented by the moderate voters who expressed quiet disillusionment to President Obama at the CNBC town hall meeting on Monday than by tea party ideologues who proclaim the unconstitutionality of the New Deal and everything since.

I especially love Mr. Dionne's characterization of the woman who expressed quiet disillusionment as a "moderate voice." So moderate that she worries about her two daughters and their continued attendance at private school, but the president answered her by discussing credit card laws, pre-existing conditions and stating that she probably wanted new shoes.
That her statement does not constitute "a sliver of opinion on the extreme end of politics" is obvious. It is also obvious that her sentiments represents a majority of Americans including the very sizable number of Tea Party members. If that is a scam then the meaning of scam has been turned on its head, but isn't that the reality of E. J. Dionne?

How Badly Does Obama Not Want To Be President?

His first first-grade gaffe, that I remember, was his 57 states comment which even school children used to know as wrong. He has had so many that they have become tiresome, but his newest is so ignorant and pandering that it is embarrassing. Many pundits have already commented that his staff should be checking these things before they are put on TOTUS for the One to read, but my comment is that he should have spotted it and fired the moron that slipped this gem into a speech. That he didn't makes him a moron.

Other pundits have spoken of Obama's refusal to utter the words "by their creator" in his speech. That is not news. He omitted the words on purpose.

He spoke of "inalienable rights" as if that was a concept of Mexico, Spain or any other culture in the Americas. First, "Long before America was even an idea, this land of plenty was home to many peoples. The British and French, the Dutch and Spanish, to Mexicans, to countless Indian tribes. We all shared the same land," Obama said to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.


Spain got free of Mexico in 1821. For kids currently in school this is important, because 1821 was more than a few years after the founding of the United States of America let alone since the idea of an America first popped into the heads of our founders. Plus, there was that dust up at the Alamo in 1836 where rights were being taken away by Mexico and the different peoples of the land weren't sharing too many values with the dictator of Mexico.

So, was it Antonio de Padua María Severino López de Santa Anna y Pérez de Lebrón that spoke of "inalienable rights" as he watched the dead men of the Alamo burned? Possibly Geronimo? Oh, that's right it was Tommy Jefferson and his friends batting around that phrase. And they did so long before anyone else was pandering with phrases like, "Can't we all just get along."

I think our president isn't making any long term plans for more glittery parties post 2012, because he either knows he isn't up to the job of being president or he has already grown tired of it. If he is, whew, whoever bestowed "Constitutional Scholar" on him should be fired immediately. I may be stretching here, but I hope that Obama knows of the link between the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Maybe he thinks that if Jefferson thought it important that Jefferson would've put a hyper-link in the Constitution. Just a thought.

Democrats Adjourning Early Double Edged Sword

On the good side, anytime Congress isn't in Washington, DC is a good time for citizens. On the bad side, anytime a group of morons like the ones in Congress go back to their districts they will try to explain themselves which only opens them up to ridicule. Oh, wait, that's two good things.

House may adjourn by end of week

Should they stay or should they go?

It's always tease, tease, tease
You're happy when I'm on my knees
One day is fine and next it's black
So if you want me off your back
Well, come on and let me know
Should I stay or should I go
 Should I stay or should I go now
Should I stay or should I go now
If I go there will be trouble
And if I stay it will be double
So come on and let me know

Zack Space's Seat Center Of Attention At Debate

Zack spoke his mind for the debate. Not at the debate, but for the debate. And his constituents.

He couldn't be bothered to attend. Constituents Little people don't command his attention.

There is no information where Zack was on Saturday night. I trust he got home on time.

Murkowski Running As An Independent????????

What a loser. What a candidate so out of touch with what is going on in America. What a woman so desperate to cling to the little power she may have.

I was actually planning to go work for O'Donnell. I think I will go work to organize grassroots support against Murkowski because she is exactly what is wrong with the Republican establishment.

Murkowski is a whining little entitlement loser.

I will work, since she has announced a NRSC loser position, to defeat her. Not just defeat her, embarrass her, by electing Miller.

Murkowski and the establishment in Washington, DC needs to be put down. What the Hell is that group in DC looking for? A handout from daddy?

Hot Air has some thoughts as well.
R.S. McCain also has some thoughts on "Lisa the Loser".

Zack "Skip a Space" Is Losing Playmates

While some unions will support Zack Space (imagine the price), others are still sore over Space not voting for the union boondoggle known as Health Care Reform. Cynics might be inclined to see Space's 'no' vote on HCR as political posturing by a politician who reads tea leaves more than constituent mail.

Fear of GOP takeover forces unions to back Dems critical of health

Meanwhile, Space missed another 'Meet the Candidates' night in his district.

Ohio Dems Avg Day: TVs For POs And Judges For Sale

Well, the Ohio Democrat Machine is running a tad bad today. What with a former Democratic chairman, union officials, judges, a county commissioner, school board members, an ex-mayor, county employees, contractors, an auditor and his son all being charged with a plethora of charges such as bribery and taking gifts such as a talkative "massage" giver.

“I just said, she gives a massage. Is that how we're going to start her out?” Dimora tells a buddy in a conversation secretly taped by investigators.

I'm thinking by "start her out" he means getting her certified to be a union plumbing assistant.

I knew things are bad in the land of the Cuyahoga, but trading television sets for contracts? I'm trusting they were really big flat screens that didn't "fall" off a Teamster truck.
Investigators say the younger Russo conspired to trade television sets for consulting contracts.
The courts will take care of all this, right? Uh, maybe not.
According to the indictment, Dimora bribed McCafferty and Terry to influence litigation (cases) in their respective courtrooms.

The unions should really do something about judge's pay so judges don't have to moonlight in other jobs such as being bribees.

Ohio Democrats never tire in their work to improve the lives of Democrats Ohio's workers. That's why Team Strickland never sleeps.

Liberal Progressive Bloomberg Wants To Ban Smoking In All Of NYC

NYC to try banning smoking in parks and beaches

Bloomberg (Smug Party-Mayor NYC) is on a roll. Salt, fat, smoke and whatever else his smugness wants to protect us from, he justs limits or bans. He ought to cut to the chase and pick Soros as a running mate and roll Obama and Bite Me who obviously aren't progressive enough for Mayor Short.

Justice Dept Priorities: Black Panthers Purr, Deer Hunters A Burr To Justice In America

"Book'em Danno!"

OMG! Holder must have Jack Lord directing the Swat Teams in this take down of a massive criminal conspiracy. With Justice's Yahweh Five-O on the case, these rubes never had a chance.

Feds target 60 hunters in Kansas hunting probe

If convicted and given maximum sentences, they could face lengthy prison terms. Jim Cross, spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Kansas, said in an e-mail that it was the biggest case of its kind prosecuted in the state.

This is huge. PETA will weep. The deer will vanish!

“The state of Kansas has paid out over $100,000 to independent contractors to thin the Kansas deer herd for management purposes,” Kerns said in an e-mail. “And now our tax money is being spent making federal cases out of alleged rednecks who supposedly harvest an extra deer.”

Bring in the FBI because they took dead deer across state lines.

The Butlers are charged with conspiring to violate the Lacey Act, a federal law that prohibits the interstate transport of any wildlife taken in violation of state regulations. The indictment alleges they violated the act by purchasing and selling white-tailed deer and mule deer.

It is so fortunate for the health of this nation that there were no black-tailed and donkey deer because that would show a racist fear of liberal policies which may have resulted in prosecutions under not just the Lacey Act, but sweeping indictments under the Mann Act. Holder and his J-Men never sleep as they lock up the bad guys and savagely beat thuggery back. Man, I wish I coulda been a Junior J-Man just to take on this conspiracy of crooks who thought they could break the civil law. HA!

Personally, I now know why I slept so soundly last night. As I drifted off to slumber, images of the forces of right slaughtering the evils of might allowed me a quick moment of self righteous smugness making my dreams of Black Panthers helping little old ladies vote so much sweeter.

The next Bambi that eats my garden is going to get poached.

Time For A Break - Time For The Young Rascals

Okay, I've been traveling all over doing what I love to do which is politics. I know, I know, I leave all of you without my wit and wisdom, but a guy gotta do what a guy gotta do, but time slows (or speeds) when deadlines are set and hotel rooms all look alike after a while.

Time for the music I had burst into my head somewhere just east of nowhere, a little south of I'm Lost Again and dap smack in the middle of no radio signal land.

Not The Rascals, not Rascal Flats, but the original blue-eyed soulsters THE YOUNG RASCALS!

Three Eyetalians and a WASP from Jersey, but no bass player. When I first started drumming I used to try to play and look like Dino Danelli, but I couldn't hold the sticks like him, I had kinky hair and I was fat. Oh well, I got better, lost a ton of weight and Jimi Hendrix occurred. Viola, I had a better chance at cool. That most of our audiences were stoned increased my odds dramatically. At least until they crashed.

Nana Arugula To Squash Restaurant Rights

Having worked in numerous restaurants I know that having a full dining room night after night is no sign that restaurateurs know what people need. It is a sign of what they want. Or so they think.

Next, Michelle Obama's health reform plan for the nation's restaurant menus and families dining out

Okay, let's start a short list:

Heat and air conditioning is bad for us, especially the way we like to use them.
They cars and trucks we like are just no good for us.
We should know that we would like to drive to California rather than fly. Walking would be even better for us.
Our houses are bad for us and Mother Gaia.
Seat belts aren't just for people. They're for dummies like you which is why you're getting a ticket dummy.
If you don't know what a “Body Mass Index” is, then you'll be paying us fatty
Kids on bikes without helmets means fork over you fine. Your kids will thank us.
Sure it's your house, but light up and bingo, you guessed it, pay up.
Like a drink? Oh wait, we tried that.
You want to do what on your property? I don't think so. Not until government approves it. Yep, you have to pay for that approval.
As parents we should know that government knows what our children need to be taught. So, let us all shut up.
Salt? Fries? Burgers? Oh, shut up. Because government said so.

Maybe Michelle should start at home. With arugula.

Maybe her husband should start here in America by realizing we are a nation of rights, not a nation of subjects tearfully thanking the government for nursing us. If he wants to protect us he might start at the borders and in terrorist territories around the world and leave us alone to build a better America one idea at a time.

Obama Keeps Just Missing Zack Space

"Congressman Space, President Obama wants to talk to you. Hello? Anybody there?"

It's one thing to duck your constituents on a daily basis, but how does he keep ducking Obama, his president and party leader. You'd think that Zack is embarrassed by Obama.

Nowhere to be seen was another Democrat from Ohio, Rep. Zack Space, who was dealing with a "personal family matter," according to his campaign. Not that it was likely to matter - Space skipped an appearance with Obama in nearby Columbus last month, choosing instead to drive around his district, campaigning on his own.

Driving around his district and campaigning on his own. Zack? Huh? Zack knows where Ohio is? I'm thinking Zack was driving around listening to Cheryl Crow at top volume allowing his self allotted one a day square to gently touch his cheek for every high note. You know, to wipe away the tear.

1813 – The United States defeats the British Fleet at the Battle of Lake Erie, sometimes called the Battle of Put-in-Bay, during the War of 1812.

Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry
Dear General:

We have met the enemy and they are ours. Two ships, two brigs, one schooner and one sloop.

Yours with great respect and esteem,
O.H. Perry

Brig Niagara, off the Western Sister,
Head of Lake Erie September 10, 4 P. M.
Sir:- It has pleased the Almighty to give to the arms of the United States a signal victory over their enemies on this lake. The British squadron, consisting of two ships, two brigs, one schooner and one sloop, have this moment surrendered to the force under my command after a sharp conflict.

I have the honor to be, Sir, very respectfully, your obedient servant,

O. H. Perry

I've lost a few battles at Put-In-Bay, but that is another discussion for another time.

Obama's Crippling Debt

Obama Added More to National Debt in First 19 Months Than All Presidents from Washington Through Reagan Combined, Says Gov’t Data

14 wars, the Great Depression, the Louisianna Purchase, the Alaska Purchase, the Marshall Plan and going to the moon are but a few things the first 40 presidents dealt with and their combined debt couldn't match the debt of Obama's ego.

A Bumper Sticker We All Need

In my email:

We were in slow-moving traffic the other day and the car in front of us had an Obama bumper sticker on it. It read:

"Pray for Obama. Psalm 109:8".

Allah Must Weep For His Word And His People

I don't condone burning any book, especially a holy book, but I am fed up with the perpetual whining of Islamofascists who know no holy books but ones of their own making. They may not know much about the Koran which they say they are quoting, but they know each and every chapter and verse of perceived wrongs and sadistic ways to punish such perceived wrongs that are listed in their holy books.

Allah must be weeping at what has been wrought in his name and what those who murder, maim and burn in his name are doing.

I'll make a bet with the frothing Ayatollah du jour and the current Imams at the top of this week's Murder Inc's demented chart. If all of the followers of your cults stop flying planes into buildings, stop using suicide bombers and generally just stop killing, people here in America will stop burning Korans. If you don't take the bet, you're cowards and if you don't like the bet, you're liars. You can bet on that. Plus, if you're in a betting mood, I wouldn't bet on 72 virgins and fruit juice, you'll just end up parched if you know what I mean. Mā šāʾ Allāh.

Righthaven Sues Angle For Las Vegas Review-Journal To Help Reid

No, I won't link to the reprobates at the Las Vegas Review-Journal nor Righthaven. One chases ambulances and the other reports it, but now it appears they have thrown their collective hats in the ring to help Hapless Harry Reid get re-elected.

Sharron Angle Faces Copyright Lawsuit

A company has sued Republican U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle, claiming she reprinted two Las Vegas Review-Journal articles on her campaign website without permission.

I am amazed at the tin ear decisions of the LVR-J and the bait and switch legal maneuvers of Righthaven to harass bloggers, but for them to get in the gutter with Harry Reid is more than a tad political.

If you lay down with rats you gonna get bit. In this case the trifecta of stupid, which is Reid, LVR-J and Righthaven, deserve each other in their backroom deals.

It's too bad LVR-J doesn't like links to their articles. If my two readers (but I boast) were to link to them it might just double their readership.

Russ & Barack Secret Meeting Place Finally Set For Milwaukee

A secret and anonymous source has said that Barack and Russ negotiated a secret meeting which would avoid any mention by the press. The same source stated that last minute instructions to the meeting would be placed in a box of tissues next to the teleprompter and that only the president should read them

Secret abandoned warehouse
Feingold to miss Obama Labor Day visit

Unfortunately, the president couldn't figure out which teleprompter would tell him what to do. At this point other secret sources say the meeting is in jeopardy.

An intrepid, though unnamed secret, source within the Feingold campaign supplied photographs showing the meeting place only after having been assured that the images would not publicly be shown until they were out of town due to "pressing personal problems." Follow up investigations found an empty apartment and disconnected telephones. Near midnight an unnamed witness in sunglasses at the unnamed source's former apartment stated that he had never seen anyone fitting the description of the anonymous source. He also stated that he had never heard of Renegade, Renaissance nor Rosebud and Radiance.
