Dude, Give It Up Already!

Global Warming myth creator/scam artist Al Gore has no shame. How many times does this perpetrator of the Great Seas Rising have to give lectures on the great myth in locations that are experiencing way, way cooler temperatures than normal before he's embarrassed? The latest tour stop of this tired act was Washington DC yesterday where his suckers/believers traveled in the middle of a snowstorm to hear their weather prophet speak.

Many call the phenomenon of Global Warming Lectures taking place in nasty, frigid weather "The Gore Effect". I prefer to think God has something to do with it. The God I know would frown upon people who profit from people's fears.

The Abominable Al has made an awful lot of money from this scam over the last few years. Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) claims that number is $100 million!

While he'll continue to profit from suckers, Hollywood types and Nobel Prize circles, we can at least have a laugh as he continues to look like a shameless snake oil salesman.

Iran to the Chosen One: Meet Our Preconditions and Maybe We'll Talk

Loved by the Muslim World

I guess Iranian President Ahmadinejad didn't get the memo that everything is gonna change.

Throughout the campaign, one of Obama's main platforms was to talk to Iran without preconditions. Ok, this was his original platform until his advisers told him to stop saying that...Americans really will think you're naive! After the negative reaction in the polls to this policy, he then backtracked to a set of preconditions not unlike the current ones Bush had set. Either way, liberals and the media hailed this as a change for a new direction. "Why not talk to them? Maybe we can work this out!" was the mantra from our great thinkers on the left.

Fast forward to a week into the new era of Hope and Change. Our new Dear Leader goes on al-Arabiya for his first television interview. Yes, that's right, he felt the need to talk to the Muslim world before addressing his own country. Anyway, in this interview he pleads for a return to the "partnership that America had with the Muslim world as recently as 20 or 30 years ago".

Ok, let's talk about 30 years ago. 1979, hmmm...what happened, oh, I know...Iranians invaded the US Embassy and took 53 American hostages! What a golden age indeed. I remember those good times! The ensuing energy crisis, the failed hostage rescue, the attack on the US embassy in Pakistan, that was one heck of a partnership!

Not to drag this out, but here's a few other things that happened during Obama's era of American/Muslim partnership(from

1982–1991 - Lebanon: Thirty US and other Western hostages kidnapped in Lebanon by Hezbollah. Some were killed, some died in captivity, and some were eventually released. Terry Anderson was held for 2,454 days.

1983 - April 18, Beirut, Lebanon: U.S. embassy destroyed in suicide car-bomb attack; 63 dead, including 17 Americans. The Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility.

Oct. 23, Beirut, Lebanon: Shiite suicide bombers exploded truck near U.S. military barracks at Beirut airport, killing 241 marines. Minutes later a second bomb killed 58 French paratroopers in their barracks in West Beirut.

Dec. 12, Kuwait City, Kuwait: Shiite truck bombers attacked the U.S. embassy and other targets, killing 5 and injuring 80.

1984 - Sept. 20, east Beirut, Lebanon: truck bomb exploded outside the U.S. embassy annex, killing 24, including 2 U.S. military.

Dec. 3, Beirut, Lebanon: Kuwait Airways Flight 221, from Kuwait to Pakistan, hijacked and diverted to Tehran. 2 Americans killed.

- April 12, Madrid, Spain: Bombing at restaurant frequented by U.S. soldiers, killed 18 Spaniards and injured 82.

June 14, Beirut, Lebanon: TWA Flight 847 en route from Athens to Rome hijacked to Beirut by Hezbollah terrorists and held for 17 days. A U.S. Navy diver executed.

Oct. 7, Mediterranean Sea: gunmen attack Italian cruise ship, Achille Lauro. One U.S. tourist killed. Hijacking linked to Libya.

Dec. 18, Rome, Italy, and Vienna, Austria: airports in Rome and Vienna were bombed, killing 20 people, 5 of whom were Americans. Bombing linked to Libya.

1986 - April 2, Athens, Greece:A bomb exploded aboard TWA flight 840 en route from Rome to Athens, killing 4 Americans and injuring 9.

April 5, West Berlin, Germany: Libyans bombed a disco frequented by U.S. servicemen, killing 2 and injuring hundreds.

1988 - Dec. 21, Lockerbie, Scotland: N.Y.-bound Pan-Am Boeing 747 exploded in flight from a terrorist bomb and crashed into Scottish village, killing all 259 aboard and 11 on the ground. Passengers included 35 Syracuse University students and many U.S. military personnel. Libya formally admitted responsibility 15 years later (Aug. 2003) and offered $2.7 billion compensation to victims' families.

Either Obama has an awful grasp of history or he chose to ignore it when he went to the Muslim world hat in hand. Either way, he's sticking to the plan of "repairing America's relations with the Muslim world." A plan heralded throughout the campaign by his media acolytes.

Iran's response?

"You were standing against the Iranian people in the past 60 years," Mr Ahmadinejad said during an address in the western region of Khermenshah that was broadcast by state television.

"Those who speak of change must apologise to the Iranian people and try to repair their past bad acts and the crimes they committed against Iran."

As to the troops, he said he expected two kinds of "deep and fundamental" change.

"Meet people, talk to them with respect and put an end to the expansionist policies. If you talk about change it must put an end to the US military presence in the world, withdraw your troops and take them back inside your borders."

Mr Ahmadinejad said the advocates of change must "stop supporting the Zionists, outlaws and criminals".

He called on the United States to "stop interfering in other people's affairs".

Well, huh, that didn't go according to plan now, did it? Ok, what was Plan B again?

An Even Better "Stupid, Self-Important Celebrities" Video

This was was during the campaign. B and C listers lip synch praises (and I think from the looks of their faces, have multiple orgasms) for The Chosen One.

Stupid, Self-Important Celebrities Pledge to be Better for Dear Leader

I found this on a week ago and had to add it.

One of the most ridiculous videos I've seen in a while. All of these clowns are pledging to be better Americans (I think). They couldn't be bothered the past 8 years, but now, we have a new messiah and we should all listen to our Hollywood celebrities.

As a Giants fan, I cringed when I saw Strahan on this.

...And Then What?

For 7 years we've heard the hyperventilating chicken littles screaming for the closure of Guantanamo Bay. Outrageous claims of the U.S. violating human rights for the detainees have pervaded just about every debate of Guantanamo for years. This, despite the fact that it has been visited with unfettered access by human rights groups, reporters, lawyers and UN officials countless times without any hint of torture or denial of basic rights.

In fact, according to U.S. authorities: the detainees are supplied with Islamic religious items including a Koran, prayer mat, and cap; loudspeakers in the camps broadcast the Muslims' call to prayer five times each day; all prisoners' meals are certified halal (adhering to Islamic law) by Guantanamo's Muslim chaplain; religious services are held for the prisoners; every cell has a stenciled arrow pointing toward Mecca, so that prisoners may face the correct direction while saying their prayers; Guantanamo's library is well stocked with Islamic literature; many of the detainees' complaints are known to have been either exaggerated or fabricated; and between April 2002 and March 2003, the detainees had by no means suffered any effects of alleged malnutrition, but in fact had gained an average of 13 pounds apiece. All of these assertions have been verified by independent observers.

Doesn't sound like they have it too bad if you ask me. But, leftist talking points are rarely based in truth. They are more concerned with gaining power than the well being of our nation.

Either way, they got their wish. President Obama has issued an executive order to close Guantanamo within a year. Now, the debate is what to do with them! Can you believe that? All these calls to close Guantanamo and no one has thought about just what we're going to do them!

I am 100% behind John Boehner's suggestion of sending them to Alcatraz. Right in Nancy Pelosi's district! I am sure they'll have a bunch of locals who are supporting them. However, the Shrew of San Francisco doesn't think it was too funny, but why not? I mean, they've had 7 years of good living and beautiful weather in Cuba, why not let them experience the seasons at San Francisco Bay?

New Messiah is so Likeable, al-Qaeda Struggles to Make Him the Bad Guy

Or so says the Washington Post.

This is one of the most ridiculous articles I've read in some time. This poor soul, Joby Warrick, is twisting like a pretzel to fit this piece into his agenda that Bush is bad, Obama is good. Sheesh.

Apparently, al-Qaeda was formed because Bush was elected. It grew as an organization all because Muslims don't like Bush.

Look at this:

"The departure of George W. Bush deprived al-Qaeda of a polarizing American leader who reliably drove recruits and donations to the terrorist group."

Really? This is absurd. George Bush is more responsible for decimating al-Qaeda than strengthening it. Are we really supposed to believe that as al-Qaeda was getting its ass kicked that young Muslim men were joining in droves?

Here's another doozy:

"With Obama, al-Qaeda faces an entirely new challenge, experts say: a U.S. president who campaigned to end the Iraq war and to close the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and who polls show is well liked throughout the Muslim world."

So, they're struggling because Obama is liked by the Muslim world? You see, they were not struggling when they were getting killed left and right by the U.S. military, no, no. They're struggling because they don't know how to dislike the Chosen One.

Finally, he quotes another useless idiot named Rita Katz to fit the agenda:

Site founder Rita Katz said the messages show "just how much al-Qaeda is intimidated by Obama."

Riiight. They're trembling in their boots right now because, darn it, so many people like this guy! Not that they've been hiding in caves for 7 years trying not to get killed, that was fine and dandy. But, the new messiah is so popular, they don't know how to cope!

Messiah Wants More of the Same for Energy Policy

If there was a bright spot from the energy crisis of last summer, it was the debate of how we use energy, where it comes from and possible solutions to find clean, cost-efficient ways to power our country. Or even, just to find ways to lower our energy costs.

So what if it took gasoline to rise above $4 to get the country thinking about alternative sources of energy and change the status quo? This was a topic that has been put off for decades as our politicians continued to kick the can down the road. Let-the-next-guy-deal-with-it has been the way of doing business in Washington for a long time now.

Over the past several decades, we have sent trillions of dollars overseas to oil producing nations. Countless billions of dollars have gone to such countries like Saudi Arabia and Venezuela. Places where our money keeps despots in power. Places where the absurdly affluent ruling class encourage their impoverished population to hate us and destroy us through religious schools and state run propaganda. The uneducated masses of these countries have heard over and over that the reason why they live in squalor is not because their leaders are taking all the money that comes into the country to themselves, but the Great Satan, the United States is keeping them in poverty.

Wouldn't common sense dictate, that if we had the chance to cut off funding to people who hate us, it would be a brilliant move to make? Cut off the money, then they have to fend for themselves. Sounds like a good idea to me.

Now, here we have this chance to use our own resources. Public opinion in the United States is all for drilling our own resources of oil. The powerful environmentalist lobby is on the losing side. We have oil offshore, in the midwest in shale and in ANWR. Wouldn't it make sense to use our own resources, create American jobs and keep our money away from funding anti-American terrorists? You, and I would think so. But, our new president and many members of congress don't.

I was saddened to see that Reuters is reporting that Obama may issue an order to stop offshore drilling expansion put in place by the Bush Administration. It may even stop developing oil shale fields.

Talk about an opportunity blown.
