It takes just two (buried) generic ballot polls to prove CBS’ Dem lapdoggery; It’s enraging

Some call it bias. I have called it agenda-driven since 1982. I was a high school student back then.

And now the polling shows the GOP is doing even better than in 2010 polling.

CBS? Quick, bury it too! Bury like the wind!

If you thought the NARAL ‘Sweet Pea’ radio ad on Cory Gardner was bad, wait until you see the TV version! [video]

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2014/10/29

John Hitchcock:

NARAL goes nutsy cuckoo (I know, already there) and makes outrageously stupid claims in an ad they are spending nearly half a million dollars to air. Desperation smells like NARAL flop sweat.

Originally posted on Twitchy:

According to Politico, “NARAL Pro-Choice and its Colorado branch are launching a $450,000 ad campaign against Republican Cory Gardner, highlighting positions on climate change and birth control for women.”

Well, that sounds pretty typical of a last-minute campaign attack, but have a look and listen to the actual television and radio ads. They’re suggesting that a vote for Cory Gardner will lead to floods and get this, condom shortages:

And believe it or not, the radio ad is worse:

Sweet Pea!

NARAL is being widely mocked — and rightfully — for the ads:

‘Who’s ‘chickensh*t’ again?’ After Bibi smear, WH spanked with cold truth [photos]

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2014/10/28

John Hitchcock:

Senior Obama Administration official, anonymously calls a world leader who is fighting a neverending battle for his country’s very survival a coward, using vulgar, street terminology. And American Jews will continue to overwhelmingly support the very people who want them and theirs dead and long forgotten. The Lord was right when He called His Chosen a very stiff-necked people.

Originally posted on Twitchy:

In case you missed it, The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg offered a peek at how the Obama administration really feels about Benjamin Netanyahu:

Read it and seethe:

The other day I was talking to a senior Obama administration official about the foreign leader who seems to frustrate the White House and the State Department the most. “The thing about Bibi is, he’s a chickenshit,” this official said, referring to the Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, by his nickname.

Over the years, Obama administration officials have described Netanyahu to me as recalcitrant, myopic, reactionary, obtuse, blustering, pompous, and “Aspergery.” (These are verbatim descriptions; I keep a running list.)  But I had not previously heard Netanyahu described as a “chickenshit.” I thought I appreciated the implication of this description, but…

We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Voter ID

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2014/10/21

John Hitchcock:

Just so we’re clear, for those who choose not to follow the link, a Republican running for office tried to vote for himself and other Republicans on the ballot. The voting machine in Cook County Illinois (that’s Chicago) put all his votes for the Democrat, including the guy who he is running against. “No evidence of vote fraud” you liars from the Left (Perry Hood of Lewes Delaware and all Democrat officials) claim? Liars gotta lie.

After all, vote fraud is so rare, especially in places like Cook County.

‘You need to tell his poor wife!’ Wendy Davis’ race-baiting about Greg Abbott is an epic fail

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2014/10/20

John Hitchcock:

Wendy Davis, who attacked a wheelchair-bound man so outrageously that even members of the Left were outraged, and who has declared Voter ID to be a “poll tax” (her words), has declared that Greg Abbott must be racist since the man who is married to a Latina “won’t say if he would defend a ban on inter-racial marriages”. Abortion Barbie is getting super-duper desperate, and trying to play all the outrage cads she can, to… to what end, I cannot imagine. It sure isn’t to win over any actual, you know, votes.

Originally posted on Twitchy:

The Wendy Davis campaign sank to a new low with the recent wheelchair ad, and so did her poll numbers.

This is further evidence this whole Homosexual Marriage thing has been a farce to begin with. As RS McCain pointed out, it is to destroy marriage. It is also to destroy Christianity. But both will fail the anti-Christian zealots.

You remember all that talk about how legalizing gay marriage wouldn’t require priests, ministers, or rabbis to conduct same-sex marriage ceremonies in violation of their religious beliefs. There wasn’t going to be any slippery slope, or so we were told.

Two ministers in Idaho are facing up to 6 months in jail and up to $1000 in fines for each day that they continue to refuse to perform a same-sex wedding that a gay couple requested last Friday.

I Will Flat Out Say It

Posted by Yorkshire on 2014/10/18

Ebola spreading is Obama’s Fault. Once known, he did what he always does – NOTHING. That is until people are screaming. This now is BO’s 9-11.

More than 100 monitored for Ebola symptoms in Ohio

They are NOT saying the 100 have it, but the nurse from TX is the reason. My feeling the Government is NOT on top of this and all this is doing is spreading fear. A rumor moves at the speed of light, the Truth crawls, and BO blames everyone else. Beat me up, I’ve been through more shit than I would wish on anyone. The Editor can CONFIRM.

Ferguson, and Michael Brown: Why the proximate facts of the shooting don’t matter …

Posted by DNW on 2014/10/18

… really, to the Activist Left.

With the most recent publication of the New York Times article on the Grand Jury findings and the likely Justice Department decision not to prosecute Officer Darren Wilson for the shooting of Michael Brown, it would seem that with a large portion of the uncertainty surrounding this event dissipating, so too would the causes for emotional inflammation lessen at least proportionally.

The Times reports:

The officer, Darren Wilson, has told the authorities that during the scuffle, Mr. Brown reached for the gun. It was fired twice in the car, according to forensics tests performed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The first bullet struck Mr. Brown in the arm; the second bullet missed.

The forensics tests showed Mr. Brown’s blood on the gun, as well as on the interior door panel and on Officer Wilson’s uniform.

Officer Wilson told the authorities that Mr. Brown had punched and scratched him repeatedly, leaving swelling on his face and cuts on his neck. This is the first public account of Officer Wilson’s testimony to investigators …”

So,  Officer Wilson’s testimony does at this point seem consistent with the forensic results.

But, says the Times, “ … it does not explain why, after he emerged from his vehicle, he fired at Mr. Brown multiple times.”

Now let’s just stop here for a moment and consider where we are even if we discount not only Piaget Crenshaw and Tiffany Mitchell’s versions of the encounter at the police car, but also Dorian Johnson’s potential “spin”.  After all, Dorian Johnson was an accomplice in Michael Brown’s moments-before robbery of Ferguson Market and Liquors . So, just for the sake of argument, let’s also suppose that Johnson’s version of Officer Wilson’s reaching up and out through the police SUV window, and grabbing the 6’4″ tall, 300 lbs,  Michel Brown by the scruff of the neck with one hand , and drawing him back into the police vehicle in order to shoot him, is discounted.

Let’s suppose instead, and based on videotaped fact quite reasonably, that Brown, highly conscious of the strong arm robbery he had just perpetrated, and of the success he had just had in assaulting and technically battering the store clerk into submission during the robbery, figured he would try the same technique on the cop who was trying to tell him to get out of the middle of the road and to stop blocking traffic; a cop who in returning to deal with Brown’s refusal, and while in radio contact with headquarters, would in all probability become more curious regarding Brown’s recent activities and current motives.

Let’s suppose then, that Wilson is telling the substantial truth: that Michael Brown, knocking Officer Wilson back into the SUV as he attempted to emerge, went himself partly in through the car door window in order to batter Wilson into submission. And, that during the course of Brown’s battering Wilson, Wilson and Brown struggled for control of Wilson’s gun, and that, as the forensics show, the gun was discharged twice in the vehicle, spattering the vehicle interior as well as Brown and Wilson, with blood from Brown’s arm.

At which point Brown wounded once in the arm, takes off running; and Wilson, battered about the head and face emerges from the vehicle in pursuit.

Ok …

The first point to make here is that many on the left would object to Wilson shooting Brown under any circumstances: even to save his life in the midst of a potentially life or death struggle.

How do we know this? We know this, because in what they are positing as roughly parallel cases, wherein there was perhaps even  more existential provocation for shooting an assailant, such as for instance, having your head smashed on a concrete walk, leftists and race hustlers have in fact vehemently objected.

In the specific instance just now referenced, the case of Zimmerman-Martin, even after it was demonstrated through imagery, and geometrically, and through the testimony of Trayvon Martin’s so-called “girlfriend”, that Trayvon had to have doubled back on Zimmerman in order to assault him; even after Zimmerman’s bloody skull and broken nose were finally shown to the public; even after the ballistics showed that Zimmerman shot up into Trayvon’s chest while, or virtually while, being battered by Trayvon, the blase’ response of the left – agreed to by our friend the Old Gap Bridger for another example – was that Zimmerman had earlier invaded Trayvon’s space, deserved an assault and battery in response, and should therefore have “taken his beating like a man”.

In other words, to some on the left who still like to pose as fellow citizens instead of declaring as outright enemies, it doesn’t matter if you are being maimed or killed by a member of the imagined victim class. You are to passively suffer it; or maybe, flee. The victim classes’ “right” to inflict mayhem on you, trumps your very right to life.

Now in the case of Officer Wilson and Michael Brown, it is apparent, even according to our hypothetical scenario here, that Brown was shot multiple more times after Officer Wilson drove off Brown’s initial attack.  This additional shooting occurred after Officer Wilson extricated himself from the vehicle and, as was his duty, set off in hot pursuit of the man who had mere seconds before been battering him.

It is at this juncture that (generalizing) a further supposition of the activist left comes into play.  Already under their scheme of things, you are presumed to be obligated to to suffer a beating at the hands of a member of an official victim class without responding with fatal or potentially fatal force. At the very least, the moment any such assailant pauses in his attack on you,  he is presumed immune from any retaliation.

In the specific case of Brown and Wilson, Brown (under our assumed scenario) having unsuccessfully attempted to batter and or kill Officer Wilson in Wilson’s car, was fleeing the failed attempt, and thereby had under collectivist moral sensibility become immune from the leveling of deadly force in retaliation. It would not matter if Brown had just 5 seconds before gouged Wilson’s left eye out and ripped off his right ear. As the leftist activist sees it, the perpetrator is morally immunized [legally is another matter] from physical retaliation through the act of flight.

Furthermore, even if Brown ceased flight, not in order to surrender, but only to resume his assault under the transparent pretext of pretending to surrender, the left would still assert that to kill the assailant prior to a repeat of physical contact, no matter how many warnings to halt were given, was “unjust”.

Why?

The reason is that under their scheme of interpretation, neither Wilson, nor Zimmerman, nor any other person not a member of an official victim class, is even entitled to self-defense.  More broadly, no one is under the leftist system, actually.  But this most especially applies to all such people already considered guilty of capitalism, and economic privilege, and of engaging in the pursuit of self-interest. Those, thinks the leftist, of this bourgeois kind, who are not yet the recipients of an assault or battery or murder, are only awaiting their turn at a proper fate.

Unfortunately this attitude, more broadly predicated and subtly construed, at least superficially, has been creeping steadily into law over some generations now.

There can, it is plain, be no real reasoning across this kind of moral gulf.

One can only resist, or submit.

Deploying the National Guard overseas on the basis of an Executive Order?

Posted by DNW on 2014/10/16

NBC News reports

“President Barack Obama is expected to issue an executive order Thursday paving the way for the deployment of National Guard forces to Liberia to help contain the Ebola outbreak there, sources told NBC News.

The sources said that eight engineers and logistical specialists from the Guard, both active-duty and reservists, would probably be included in the first deployment. They are expected to help build 17 Ebola treatment centers, with 100 beds apiece. The sources said that no decision had been made.

Defense Department officials said that the executive order was necessary to speed the deployments, and would allow the president to send additional forces as needed. Health officials have recorded more than 2,400 Ebola deaths in Liberia, the highest of any country.”

The National Guard? There have undoubtedly been numerous changes for the worse in our laws in recent years, but when did the President get the authority to call up National Guardsmen for duty beyond our borders on his own imperial say so?

What the hell has this country, and have its people, become?

UPDATE:

In partial answer to my own question we have this from the Heritage Foundation. I have made paragraphs in some cases where none were before in order to emphasize certain points.:

“In the 1980s, governors again resisted a presidential call for the militia (National Guard). Some of them objected to the deployment of their states’ National Guard troops to Central America. Led by Minnesota governor Rudy Perpich, these governors withheld their consent to federally ordered National Guard active duty training, as was their prerogative under then current federal law.

In response, Congress enacted the Montgomery Amendment, which prohibited governors from withholding consent for National Guard active duty service outside the United States.

Perpich filed suit against the Department of Defense, arguing that the Montgomery Amendment was unconstitutional because it infringed on the militia training authority granted to the states under Article I, Section 8, Clause 16.

Perpich also sought to enjoin the use of Minnesota National Guard troops in any training outside the United States that did not have the governor’s consent. Ultimately, the Supreme Court upheld the supremacy of presidential control over the operations of the militia when called into actual service of the United States.

Like James Monroe and Justice Joseph Story, the Court held that a state governor could not veto the use of a state militia when called upon by the nation in accordance with Congress’s constitutional power and the President’s constitutional authority.

Recent Presidents have made more use of the National Guard as a reserve, calling units up for long periods of duty abroad, in actions in the two Gulf Wars, Bosnia, and Afghanistan.”

All this still leaves open the matter of Congressional assent, and under what legal authority the militia is being “called into the actual service of the United States”.

My, what a race of serfs we have become.

One, notice that Media Matters doesn’t actually write why they think Stacey is wrong; they’ve just posted the video with “plantation mentality” in the headline.
