The Legacy of George W. Bush

I don't have anything to add or comment on, just an interesting read from Charles Krauthammer.

Another Lefty Shooter

Surprise, surprise.  The latest loon to go on a shooting spree is yet another left-wing nut-job.  That makes it what, a 17-1 ratio of lefty shooters to that of right-wing persuasion since Timothy McVeigh in 1995?  For our literal lefty readers, I'm just sarcastically exaggerating (I think).  I use McVeigh and 1995 as the time bar, seeing as he is the last right-winger, if not conservative the liberals love to grasp onto when trying to fathom a right-wing harbinger of evil.

So really, let's look a this,

Left-wing shooters since 1995:
Karl Pierson
Adam Lanza
James Holmes
James Jay Lee
Floyd Corkins, Jr.
Jared Loughner
Aaron Alexis
Seung-Hui Cho
Christopher Dorner
Amy Bishop

And those are just the ones I can think of right now. Because I really, really can't think of any right-wing shooters.  And if they weren't splashed across your television screen 24/7; you know they weren't right-wingers.

Right-wing terrorists since 1995:
Timothy Mcveigh, and, um...that's it.  If there's any other out there of note, let me know.

Although the media has tried to desperately pin such crimes on people like James Holmes of Aurora because he was a member of the Colorado Tea Party with the same name as the theater shooter.  You can bet they were chomping at the bit at that one.

So, we know there will be another mass shooting.  What ideology-assuming the perpetrator isn't just all out wacko-do you think he'll possess?  If it's not mental illness, it's far left-wing thinking.
Apples and oranges and all that.

Want to know about the history of left-wing violence (lefties, feel free to find your own right-wing agents to remind me of) see here.

And here's something to make your head's explode a little further:

Liars All

Like all progressives that can't get people to believe their fairy tales, simply because they "said so," Democratic strategist and former executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus Angela Rye tried to replay the old disgusting lie of Congressman John Lewis (D-GA) who said he was repeatedly called a "nigger" (no less than 15 times he claimed) and spat upon by Tea Party enthusiasts during their walk from the House of Representatives to the Capital building to promote the debacle that is Obamacare in 2010.

Unfortunately for Rye and her web of lies, Republican strategist Ron Christie was there to set the record straight.  Although no help from the always misleading Melissa Harris-Perry, who did nothing to correct Rye and her re-writing of history.  And that's modern history, no less.

The late Andrew Breitbart offered a $100,000 reward for anyone who could produce definitive proof that Lewis or anyone involved with the Congressional Black Caucus was called anything or were spat upon. With all those smart phones, cell phones, video cameras (both amatuer and professional aka media) not one person captured anything of the sort.  Not one!  Needless to say Breitbart never did have to cut a cheque. This complete and absolute falsehood has been permeating in the left-wing media ever since.

Don't you think that with all their fervor and loyalty to their heroes, someone would have come forward to prove "once again" that those nasty hate-filled Tea Party Republicans are exactly what the and their media enablers hope they are?

The total arrogance and condescension of Rye is typical.  They know the truth, but they don't care.  It's the same with President Obama and his "If you like you're plan, you can keep it," lie.  They knew people wouldn't be able to keep their medical plans under Obamacare two whole years prior to him saying it.  And they know this is an outright lie as well.  That also goes for the IRS, NSA and Benghazi scandals (you know that are just "bumps in the road.")  But I digress.  After all "what difference does it make?"

No Mercy for the Tea Party

We all know how much the left hates the Tea Party.  Don't believe me?  Just listen to the three networks and cable news outlets run by liberals; they'll tell you.  Everybody hates the Tea Party.  So when phony "news" reports surface about the "violence and racism" of Tea Party members nation-wide, just believe them.  They wouldn't lie to you or in any way, shape or form.  Except when they do.  Constantly.

Case in point is this little tidbit (that once again hasn't seen the light of day on CBS, ABC, NBC, CNN or MSNBC-I know shocking) about how (probably) a race-related incident is never newsworthy unless it's framed in a "white-beats-black" narrative.

Nelson Mandela Dead At 95

Former South African president and international role model Nelson Mandela has died after a lengthy illness at the age of 95.

In perhaps his most famous and inspirational words spoken in 1964, Mandela spoke of dying for principles and for what he thought was right:

  “I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.” 
- Nelson Mandela, speech from the dock, Rivonia Trial, Pretoria, South Africa, April 20, 1964

He was imprisoned for over 26 years at hard labor after being convicted (in mostly a Stalin-esque show-trial) for conspiracy to violently overthrow the government before finally being released in 1990.

The hard right-wing in South Africa used his respect and/or influence of Karl Marx as reason to label him a terrorist and enemy of the people.

On a personal note, this is the man that black youths, both in Africa and North America should model themselves after.  Put aside his communist ideals and tendencies that the African government used against him (as well as his admitted crimes) he fought for what he believed in...on principle.  If you listen to men like Morgan Freeman, Denzel Washington and Bill Cosby, they too continue to be role models for not only black youths, but all youths in general.  All three have noted Mandela as inspiration.

Wikipedia has the lowdown on the life and times of Mandela.

But one must be careful to, as former TIME magazine editor Rick Stengel said, not make Mandela into a Santa Clause-type figure, he wasn't.

“He had a great mission. And one of the lessons, too, is that he had one gigantic principle, which is to bring freedom and democracy to his people. Everything else was a tactic. He was a pragmatic politician. He wasn't a visionary, necessarily. He wasn't a philosopher. He wasn't a saint. But that – he never deviated from that. Anything that would get him there he embraced including violence, which he took the ANC created the spirit of the nation. He created the violent wing of the ANC. And people don’t realize that or remember that. We have kind of made him into a Santa Claus. He wasn’t. He was a revolutionary.”

And let's not forget the re-written property laws after Mandela took office wherein soon after white farmers were thrown off their property under threats of violence and at times many were killed by Mandela's new alliances. The result of which being these annexed farms were left in the hands of non-farmers.  People with no experience in farming allowed these farms to go to waste, causing food prices to soar and people to go hungry.

That, among others, was the downside to Mandela's rule and politics.  The man himself, his personal principles may have been something to desire or emulate, but he had his faults like anyone else, no doubt.  His is a complicated legacy.

I really meant to just to simply honor a man who made other lives better.  But he also made other lives worse, like any politician.  But typically the left has used his passing and the fact that other leaders, mostly conservative, did not fully embrace Mandela's regime (mostly because he was allied with such dictators and communists such as Muammar Gaddafi, Fidel Castro and the Soviet Union) as a reason to cherry-pick moments in history to label these people, especially Ronald Reagen as racists.  Shame on them.

Band of Brothers Hefron Dead at 90

Immortalised in the book Band of Brothers by Stephen E. Ambrose and the HBO mini-series of the same name, Edward J. "Babe" Hefron has died at the age of 90 in a Stratford, NJ hospital.

Hefron was pre-deceased by his commanding officer, Major Richard Winters in January 2011.

May God bless these men and the rest of Easy Company as well as all those who served and protected liberty against the Nazi scourge.

Bashir Resigns

After suggesting that someone should defecate in Sarah Palin's mouth (and the left-wing media ignoring it for weeks because, you know, it's Palin, so who cares?) for nothing less than publicly disagreeing with her on government policy,  MSNBC's Martin Brashear has resigned from the network.

Of course the debates will begin about how the left see what Bashir did as no big deal (because afterall suggesting someone should crap in a conservative's mouth is fair game in the "progressive" world, especially if that woman is a conservative woman; double especially if that conservative woman is Sarah Palin.)

Since when does a slip up in what newspapers someone reads (a comment made overfive years ago) allow that person to be insulted, degraded, wished rape and death upon that of her and her family?
As the above link says, when Rush Limbaugh made albeit rude and unneccesary comments toward Sandra Fluke, the left wanted his head on a plate.  Don Imus was fired for his comments towards the Rutgers NCAA womens basketball team members, calling them "nappy-headed hos."  Remember, both Limbaugh and Imus caught heat immediately from the so-called intelligencia.  Bashir has been allowed an extra three weeks (give or take a couple of days) to keep his job and his (and of course the network's) brand of indoctrination and childishness disguised as "news," without hardly anyone on the left making a peep about it. Certainly not the networks.

But then again why are we even remotely surprised by this after all this time?
