The Cover-Up’s In Place; Will It Hold?

28 May 2010

The White House has been avoiding the topic of the alleged felony offense of offering a position to Rep. Sestak to back off from opposing Sen. Spectre; but when Obama was asked about it point blank at his recent (practically only) press conference the other day (and the loquacious President spent less than 30 seconds dodging the subject), it was obviously time to throw together a cover story. The story? Bill Clinton was asked to make the offer. I guess they figure that since Clinton isn’t President anymore, it’s not a problem if he makes a hypothetical offer because he has no power … However, if he’s speaking for the White House, he’s just as guilty as if Rahm Emmanuel or Axelrod had done it. He’s still speaking for the White House, and he wouldn’t be making an offer like that without their specific knowledge and consent. So the questions of Who approved the offer? and What did Obama know? and When did he know it? are all still in play.

Of course, if you want to create a cover up, and you don’t want it to look like a cover up, it helps if you don’t meet with Bill Clinton and coordinate with Joe Sestak and his brother immediately beforehand to make sure everybody has their stories straight. The cover up is on, and even if Barack Obama was not involved in the original offer to Sestak, he is involved up to his protruding ears in the cover-up. And as Richard Nixon could have told him (and as Bill Clinton should have told him) it’s the cover up that gets you.

Here’s more from Hot Air. Funny how Sestak, who was being so coy for months about who made what offer, is suddenly saying “Oh yeah, that’s how it happened.” One has to wonder if Bill Clinton was the best patsy the White House could get… Couldn’t they at least have tried to get someone who wasn’t already famous for lying under oath?

“Christians Blow Up More People (In This Country) Than Muslims Every Single Day.” -Travis Smiley

The Columbine massacre was motivated by Christianity? Oh boy. Yes, and let’s keep reminding people about all of those abortion clinic bombings, the last of which occurred when Bill Clinton was President. Didn’t Rosie O’Donald also say sometime after 9/11 that Christians posed a bigger threat to this country than Islamists (lampooned in An American Carol)? One has to wonder what color the sky is in their world… (H/T: Weasel Zippers)

There’s a great video here* (which sadly does not appear to be embeddable within WordPress) of both David Axelrod and Joe Sestak dancing around the issue (which has been simmering for months below the MSM’s RADAR, since no Republicans are involved) of whether or not the White House offered Sestak a bribe to drop his primary challenge against Arlen Spectre (SINO-Senator In Name Only-PA). According to some, including Dick Morris, this rises to the level of an Impeachable offense.

50% – I’m Doing Better Than Obama!

24 May 2010

So far, four of the people for whom Obama has personally campaigned, putting his (alleged) prestige on the line* … have all lost when they went up before the voters. Arlen Specter (Whatever-PA) was the most recent. Well, I recently made small donations to a small group of Congressional candidates (none of them incumbents, BTW) and now two of them have faced the voters – and I’m one for two. Charles Djou (R) has won a special election in Hawaii, the district where Obama grew up. Not quite as historic as Scott Brown capturing the seat which formerly strained under the bloated carcass of Ted Kennedy, but still the first Republican to win a Hawaiian Congressional seat in twenty years. Let’s see who else I can support…

*My wife reminds me not to forget the Chicago Olympics when tallying Obama’s “successes” in campaigning.

Of course they know what’s actually in Arizona’s law. But there’s no way that they can continue to outrageously lie about what the law says and does if they admit to having actually read it. (H/T: HillBuzz)

Everybody Draw Mohammed Day

20 May 2010

Pakistan has blocked Facebook and other sites today, either to protect their citizens’ delicate eyes from seeing horrendous blasphemy, or so that they can later lie about what cartoons were posted. (More on the fakes.) Apparently this was unnecessary in any case, since I’m told Facebook took down the “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day” group. (I cannot verify this, as I don’t use Facebook.)

“There comes a point in any society’s existence where it must ultimately, to paraphrase Martin Luther (who himself was more than happy to see opponents put to death), dig in its heels and say here we stand, we will do no other. We don’t need to be perfectly consistent philosophically or historically or theologically to assert what is special and unique not just about the United States, with its bizarre and wonderful articulation of the First Amendment, but the greater classical liberal project comprising not just the ‘West’ (whatever that is) but human beings in whatever town, country, or planet they inhabit. And at the heart of the liberal project is ultimately a recognition that individuals, for no other reason than that they exist, have rights to continue to exist. Embedded in all that is the right to expression. No one has a right to an audience or even to a sympathetic hearing, much less an engaged audience. But no one should be beaten or killed or imprisoned simply for speaking their mind or praying to one god as opposed to the other or none at all or getting on with the small business of living their life in peaceful fashion. If we cannot or will not defend that principle with a full throat, then we deserve to choke on whatever jihadists of all stripes can force down our throats.” –Nick Gillespie (H/T: AllahPundit)

Well then…

The Made-Up Movie They Tried To BAN! Go ahead. Tell me that wouldn’t rock. You’d be lying.

I drove past the Mexican Embassy in Washington DC tonight.

I couldn’t help noticing the fence, barbed wire, and other security features designed to keep people out who don’t belong there.

Tomorrow is “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day” (even if it was fearfully disavowed by the woman who thought it up). Not everybody is prepared to draw a line in the sand for free speech, especially given the responses from some muslims before any of the drawings even hit the internet.

A number of sites have been accepting submissions, and planning to display as many such drawings as they can get tomorrow. I already missed the deadline for most of them; but I’ve got this blog here to host my amateur scribbles come the morrow.

A Letter from Tim Burns

19 May 2010

Once again, yesterday’s primary and special elections foretell of gloom and doom for progressives, especially those for whom President Obama campaigns (he is now 0 for 4). They only had one bit of good luck, in Murtha’s district in Pennsylvania – and even there, the Democrat (one of Murtha’s old staff) only won because he portrayed himself as a pro-gun, pro-life, small government conservative. I know I’m not the only one who didn’t believe that for a second (I donated money to his Republican opponent), but he apparently fooled enough of the people this one time. Still, here’s the letter that Tim Burns, the Republican candidate, sent out today to his supporters: (more…)

Literacy. Not Just a Good Idea.

14 May 2010

We all recall how many in the Congress (and the media) didn’t even bother to read the Obama “Care” bill before passing it… and the same applied to the “Stimulus” porkfest and no doubt also to Cap Tax and Trade. And now, there’s the Democratic festival of lies that is their reaction to Arizona’s law allowing them to do the federal government’s job and police their borders. Attorney General Eric Holder didn’t even bother to read the Arizona bill before deciding to fight it in court. C2’s LuciusSeptimius suggested the following slogan for the upcoming election, with the backdrop of another document the Democrats apparently haven’t read either:
