The Clintonesque Ethic

Image
Clintonesque: 1. shaded by deceit 2. Having Clinton-like qualities (Classless, arrogant, dishonest, shameless, corrupt, secretive, vicious, vengeful, elitist, and intoxicated by political power. ) 3. In matters of speech, to parse the English language at a direct question so as to avoid responsibility for your own actions. In matters of conduct, to be more interested in self, instead of the greater good.

Remember all that money (almost $900,000) that the Clinton campaign was going to return and/or donate to charity because it was tainted by scandal?

Well, Hillary wants it back.

The Clinton campaign will try to get most of the donors to give the money back right after the refunds, said a senior Democratic strategist and one of Clinton’s campaign advisers. “That’s the plan.”

Ms Clinton is running for president on her White House experience in the 1990s, a time when both Clintons were often photographed with people whose money was funny, like Johnny Chung

and Charlie Trie .

The Streets of San Francisco

Image
The United States Marine Corps wanted to film their spectacular Silent Drill team on the city streets on the anniversary of 9/11 for a recruitment commercial.


The request was denied by Stefanie Coyote, Executive Director of the SF Film Commmission.

The reason?
"Traffic control was the issue," explained Ms Coyote.The Marines would have shut down just one lane of California Street for a few minutes at a time.

Captain Greg Corrales, SFPD Traffic Bureau, who works with film crews shooting commercials, TV shows and movies in the city, points out the Film Commission often approves shoots for rush hour.
"If they want to get the job done, they find a way to get it done."
The city also allows street demonstrations, anti-war protests and other events which snarl traffic, such as Critical Mass, when 'self-propelled' commuters -bicyclists in particular- take to the streets en masse.

Captain Corrales, a Marine veteran whose son is serving his third tour of duty in Iraq, say…

The Clintons vs Freedom of the Press

Image
On January 20, 1993, William Jefferson Clinton took the oath of office as the 42nd president of the United States of America and swore to "preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States" from enemies both foreign and domestic.

Is there an expiration date on that oath?


Because ex-president Bubba surely isn't doing anything to preserve, protect, and defend the rights of Josh Green.

Green wrote an article for GQ Magazine about infighting within Hillary's campaign, which was sure to be vastly embarrassing (for her) and entertaining (for the rest of us). So, Bill Clinton's spokesman, Jay Carson, offered GQ's editors a choice: Kill the piece, or lose access to planned December cover-boy Bill Clinton.

GQ editor Jim Nelson wussed out and bowed to the Clintons' demands. The 'offending' article was dumped.

Note: Josh Green is not a particular favorite of the Clinton campaign. He authored an unflattering profile in the November 2006 Atlanti…

The Idiot(s) at Columbia

Image
More erudite people than I have written about Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's visit to the US this week. But here's my three cents worth:

I personally think the two-faced little Monkey-Man dictator should never have been invited to speak at Columbia University, nor should he have been allowed in this country for any reason in the first place.

Most, if not all, of those 700 Columbia University students in attendance at Monkey-Man's 'lecture' will never serve their country in the military. Fortunately for them, they have that choice.

But others made the choice to do so, and some of them are now in harm's way.

Whether you are for the war or not, whether you are a Wingnut or a Moonbat, our husbands and wives, our sons and daughters and our brothers and sisters are being killed and maimed by RPG-29 rocket-propelled grenades, 240 mm rockets and armor-piercing roadside bombs known as explosively formed penetrators (EFPs), provided by the terrorist state of Iran.

Bill Clinton - Giving America the Finger

Image
With Bill Clinton, the truer the accusation, the greater his indignation.

And the more his finger wags in our faces.

The second time ex-President and known liar Bill Clinton gave America the finger on national television was one year ago today on Fox News Channel's Chris Wallace's interview show.

From behind the 'aw-shucks', good-ol-boy fa├žade, the real Bill Clinton emerged, the man those who have worked for him know – the angry, sarcastic, arrogant, self-righteous, bully boy.

Clinton, never one to let truth or his draft-dodging, anti-military past get in his way, portrayed himself as a tough, anti-terror president, with conservatives criticizing him for obsessing about bin Laden during his presidency.

With his finger wagging in America's face (again), the ex-president told Wallace, "I worked hard to try to kill him. I authorized a finding for the CIA to kill him. We contracted with people to kill him. I got closer to killing him than anybody has gotten since.&quo…

Hillary Shows Her True Colors

Image
Hillary Clinton wants to be POTUS, which means she would also be Commander in Chief of America's armed services.

Since formally announcing her presidential candidacy, Hillary has been portraying herself as a pro-military supporter of our men and women in uniform.

Well, that requires "the willing suspension of disbelief".

Hillary showed her 'true colors' as self-proclaimed 'co-president': she did not want uniformed military personnel in the Clinton White House.

When that didn't work out, she wanted uniformed military personnel to leave the room when she came in.

Hillary had uniformed military personnel serving canapes at White House functions.

There was a story about how she commanded a young White House Marine to fetch her another cup of coffee, and when he refused to leave his post, she threw the remains of her coffee in his face.

As a Senator she has consistently voted against funding the troops.

Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), not one to shy away from forcing …

Not Forgotten: National POW/MIA Day

Image
Congress has set aside the 3rd Friday of September in each year as National POW/MIA Recognition Day.

It is a time to remember those who never came home and to remind us that, while we enjoy the privileges of freedom, somewhere there are soldiers who have not been accounted for and may, in fact, be held against their will by the enemies of Freedom.

Three American soldiers from the Iraq War remain POW / MIA:

Since April 9, 2004:

An Enormous Crime

September 21, 2007
National POW / MIA Recognition Day
It is a time to remember those who never came home and to remind us that somewhere there are soldiers who have not been accounted for and may, in fact, be held against their will by the enemies of Freedom.

At the end of the Vietnam War, there reportedly were 2,583 unaccounted-for American Prisoners missing or killed in action/body not recovered.

As of April 11, 2007, there are 1,786 Americans still missing, over 90% of them in Vietnam or in areas of Laos and Cambodia where Vietnamese forces operated during the war.

The enormous crime is the deliberate abandonment of 700 US POWs in Vietnam and Laos back in 1973 — and the continued cover-up of the existence of these men.

Former North Carolina Congressman Bill Hendon spent the last 25 years digging into intelligence files in an effort to learn what really happened to those POWs:

..."right at the end of Operation Homecoming, the men were released in groups and when the last group was re…

John Kerry 'Swiftboats' POWS

Image
Friday, September 21st, is National POW/MIA Day.

Since John Kerry is in the news again, I thought a memory re-freshening might be in order.

On April 22, 1971 John Forbes Kerry, aka Hanoi John, as a leader of Vietnam Veterans Against the War, gave his infamous war-bashing Testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, declaring -under oath- that he and many other veterans of that conflict were war criminals, and insisting that the United States had a definite obligation to make extensive economic reparations to the people of Vietnam.

Kerry mentioned that while in Paris about a year earlier, he had meetings with "both sides" of the Paris Peace Talks.

No doubt he meant the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong sides.

U.S. Veteran Dispatch noted in 1996: “Kerry's testimony, it should be noted, occurred while some of his fellow Vietnam veterans were known by the world to be enduring terrible suffering as prisoners of war in North Vietnamese prisons. Kerry was a supporter of t…

Maddie the Mouth Is Still Hurling

Image
Madeleine Albright, known liar, is still hurling 'em right and left (mostly Left).Campaigning for Hillary Clinton in Iowa, Ms Albright characterized Clinton as `a caring person who understands the problems of real people`.

"There has been an attempt to portray her as a cold fish, and she is not. She's really a good friend and somebody who reaches out."Yes, Hillary cares ... about herself and her ambitions.
Yes, Hillary reaches out ... for your money, for your vote, for whatever it takes Hill to get what Hillary wants.
Yes, Hillary is a good friend ... as long as you play by her rules.
Hillary understands nothing about the problems of real people because she hasn't been a real person for a really long time.

But I digress.

Albright was the first female Secretary of State, serving during the Clinton Follies, and as such was caught lying to Congress about intelligence regarding the North Korean underground nuclear facility at Kumchang-ri.

She maintained all was well, that &…

Hildabeast and the Three Stooges

Image
It's like a Brothers Grimm Fairy Tale,
only true,
and grimmer.

It has been reported (not in the MSM, no surprise) that Hillary Clinton has been relying on a triumvirate of senior officials from her co-presidency days.
Stooge # 1
Sandy “Docs In My Socks” Berger
(National Security)
Clinton National Security adviser who managed to pretty much get away with stealing and destroying classified documents from the National Archives. These documents were relative to the Clinton administration’s anti-terror efforts and wentmissing rightbefore Bill Clinton’s testimony to the 9/11 commission.

Stooge # 2
Richard Holbrooke (Foreign Policy)Clinton administration US Ambassador to Germany (1993-94), Assistant Secretary of State for European and Canadian Affairs (1994-99), and UN Ambassador (1999-2001); A little known chapter in Holbrooke’s career in the US government is his complicity in Indonesia’s campaign of genocide against East Timor.

Welcome to Washington, General Petraeus

Image
It's a sad, sorry state of affairs in this country when a principled, decent man does his job, does it well, and is blasted by a bunch of narrow-minded, hypocritical idiots (aka Congress) before he has a chance to speak one syllable.

Welcome to Washington, General Petraeus.
In the two days of hearings on Capitol Hill that you sat through, you were a helluva lot more impressive than the congressional idiots who had already made up their minds not to accept anything you might have to say.

These Congresspeople were elected to represent the American people.
The majority of them do not. They represent their own self-serving interests.

You probably didn't change any of their minds but at least your dignity and honor remained intact.

Even before the hearings began, Moveon.org, in the great tradition of liberal politics, accused General David Petraeus ("Betrayus") of "cooking the books" and charged him with 'betraying the American peoples' trust by spinning th…

Hillary and Funny Money, Part $$$

Image
Hillary REALLY, REALLY wants to be president.
So much so that she's giving back money, a lot of it, to avoid yet another Clinton scandal - $850,000 raised by Democratic fundraiser Norman Hsu, one of her top fundraisers.

Hillary had previously planned to give only $23,000 to charity, but since the FBI is now investigating Hsu for allegedly violating election laws, the campaign will now return a much larger wad of the funny money.

Hsu, regarded as a top party fundraiser, has raised and donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Democratic Party groups and federal candidates since 2004. ... until recent reports surfaced that he was wanted on a warrant in California in connection with a 1991 grand theft charge, and may be looking at other federal charges. (Oops!)

The Clinton spin machine goes into overdrive.
The Clinton campaign has announced it will vigorously review its fundraisers, including thorough criminal background checks, in the future.

Hillary's campaign has never bothered to…

9/11 - The Pentagon

Image
Semper Fidelis

Clintonian Fool: David Tarbell

David Tarbell, director of the Defense Technology Security Administration under Clinton-Gore, ordered the mass shredding of Pentagon records that could have documented some of the most serious Chinagate allegations against the Clinton-Gore administration.


Clinton Hold-over Orders Secret Documents Destroyed

When the DTSA moved its offices, Tarbell, a Clinton holdover at the Pentagon, told subordinates that the new facility couldn't accommodate the documents.

These documents included top secret intelligence reports on foreign weapons programs and front companies, and memoranda documenting Pentagon decisions to allow U.S. companies to sell advanced technology directly to Russian and Chinese military facilities.

Much of the secret material was so highly restricted that documents had to be signed out when viewed. At Tarbell's direction, even those access logs have been destroyed, erasing any paper trail that might show who handled the super-sensitive records.

The entire record of w…

Not Forgotten: September 11, 2001

Image
The mass murder of 3,000 innocent people on American soil was a declaration of war by an insidious enemy determined on destroying our society, our culture, and all those of us who resist.

They'd like nothing better than for our memories to fade.
Which they have.

They are depending on our divisiveness.
Which we are.

They are counting on us being hopeful of some diplomatic "solution."
Which some deluded politicians are.

They are infiltrating our country while they plot and prepare their next assaults, likely far worse than the ones they have already committed.

I remember the images of the planes being flown into the WTC towers and imagining the horror of the people on the planes and those in the towers.

I remember the images of people jumping from the Twin Towers — head first, feet first, solo, hand-in-hand, to escape the inferno of burning jet fuel. What an absolutely unimaginable choice that must have been.

I remember watching the towers collapse and then seeing that nightmare cl…

Tag, You're Not It!

The classic schoolyard game of Tag (You're it!) is now not allowed on some school playgrounds.

Apparently some wussy kids complained that they were 'harassed' or 'chased against their will' during recess.

So their wussy parents and wussy teachers, people raising and teaching kids that will no doubt be unable to cope with the real world, placed tag on the Politically Correct Banned List.
"It causes a lot of conflict on the playground," said Cindy Fesgen, assistant principal of the Discovery Canyon Campus school.When will these children be allowed to experience conflict so they can learn how to deal with it?

Apparently never, if their Politically correct idiot parents and teachers have anything to do about it.

But running games are still allowed as long as the kids don't chase each other.

Hey, Football is a running game and involves chasing and being chased.

Try doing away with football and see what happens.

Talk about conflict.

We're Kicking Ass ... Our Own

Image
When president Bush was recently asked about Iraq, he told the Australian Deputy Prime Minister, "We're kicking ass".

Not only the enemy's ass, but apparently our own as well...

Phil Brennan of NewsMax reports that the Thomas More Law Center charged today that The Secretary of the Navy has punished three top combat officers for reasons of political expediency."Despite the exoneration of Marines actually involved in "kicking the enemy's ass" in the fighting in Haditha on November 19, 2005, three senior Marine officers -- Maj.Gen. Richard Huck , Col. Robert Sokoloski, and Col. Stephen Davis -- have been administratively censured by the Secretary of the Navy for their involvement in the Haditha events."According to Richard Thompson, president and chief counsel of the Thomas More Law Center, “The Secretary of the Navy has sacrificed three senior, combat-experienced warriors on the altar of political expediency to appease anti-war politicians and the…

Hillary's 35 Years of (Dubious) Experience

Image
"Change is just a word if you don't have the strength and experience to make it happen. I bring 35 years of experience to make the changes I think we need to make in America."Changes like bigger government, socialized medicine, inept cronyism and less national security?

Let's take a look at some of Hillary's 35 years of experience:

Yale student Hillary was recruited by leftist professor Tommy The Commie Emerson to monitor the murder trial of The New Haven Nine (Black Panthers) for the ACLU; Hillary also helped edit the Yale Review of Law and Social Action – a left-wing journal which promoted cop-killing and featured cartoons of pig-faced police.

She was appointed by President Goober in 1977 to the Legal Services Corp, a federally-funded non-profit organization; she oversaw a $90 million-$321 million budget, which she wielded to try to defeat California tax-cutting proposition 9; to support to legal efforts in Michigan to give standing to 'Black English/Ebonics&…

Hillary and Funny Money, Part $$

Image
Hillary Clinton and funny money go together like Bill Clinton and anything with big boobs.

The California Court of Appeals, Second Appellate District, will hear arguments about whether Hillary Clinton should be a defendant in a lawsuit brought by Hollywood mogul Peter Paul. An earlier ruling dismissed Hillary Clinton from a previous lawsuit under a statute that protects politicians from harassing or frivolous lawsuits. Paul's legal team argues the statute does not apply to a political figure who violates the law.

Attorneys for each side will also debate the inclusion as evidence of a videotape in which Clinton can be heard agreeing to plan a fund-raiser, which was later determined to be illegal by the Federal Elections Commission (FEC).

This videotape "captures the very commission of a crime, namely, that of knowingly soliciting, coordinating and accepting federal campaign contributions far in excess of the legal limit of $2,000."

This harks back to Galagate, an August 2000 …

Whoopi, Another FOOL

Image
I don't always agree with what Susan Estrich writes, but she happens to be absolutely right about the following:
"Whoopi, a woman who is clearly at her best delivering lines written by other people, used her first day on “The View” to insult every dog-loving American from the South.

You know, that region of the country where it’s part of the culture to torture dogs, and drown them and hang them if they don’t run fast enough to please you.

According to Whoopi’s defense of the disgusting criminal named Michael Vick, abusing dogs “is part of his cultural upbringing."

Cultural upbringing? Is this how Whoopi raises her family?

"For a lot of people, dogs are sport. Instead of just saying he is a beast and he's a monster, this is a kid who comes from a culture where this is not questioned."

What is wrong with this woman? Torturing dogs, putting them on a “rape stand” to force them to breed, hitting them with sharp sticks to make them run faster, and then executing…

Hillary's Clintonesque Math

Image
Hillary Clinton thinks that her political negatives are a positive, a "fortunate blessing" even.

I can just imagine a certain portion of the American public nodding in agreement.

If the 'smartest woman on earth' says so, it must be so.

I may have only a state university education, not Wellesley or Yale, but I do know that 'political negatives' do not add up to a 'fortunate blessing' no matter what formula you use.

It must be Clintonesque math.

What are her political negatives anyway?

She's a woman.... This isn't necessarily a negative. I think a woman could be president, and I'd vote for a woman, just not HER.

She's scripted.... Hillary won't/can't answer an unrehearsed question. She relies on her 'handlers' to get questions before-hand so they can review and refuse them if necessary.

She's unlikeable.... Unless you like cold, ambitious, angry, arrogant, corrupt, duplicitous, paranoid, ruthless, and elitist people.

She…
