Friday Afternoon Roundup - Vote Dorner
Sultan Knish ^ | February 15, 2013 | Daniel Greenfield

I'M NOT FULL OF MYSELF, I'M A SOCIALIST

In 1986, at the closing session of the Communist Party shindig in the Karl Marx Theater in Havana, Castro had declared, “Let no one think that what I have here is a lengthy speech; it is the party’s program.” He then went on to speak for 7 hours and 10 minutes.

Obama’s ridiculous 6600-word marathon is also not a lengthy speech; it is the party’s program.

As out of touch with the rest of the country as if he were speaking at the Karl Marx Theater in Havana, Obama claimed that spending was under control, the national debt was no longer a problem, the war in Afghanistan had been won, the economic recovery was here, unemployment was fading and Al Qaeda was a shadow of its former self.

There were more calls to fix all those broken bridges, which he had somehow been unable to fix for four years, despite running trillion dollar deficits. And finally a proposal to really help the economy take off by legalizing 11 million illegal aliens and thereby doubling the unemployment rate in a single year.

Any Diogenes in the audience taking it upon himself to shout “liar” at every lie would have worn out his vocal chords in a matter of minutes.

Obama finds his Inner Castro, Lets It Out to Play on National Television.




ORDINARY HEROISM



Not many people have focused in on the insanely arrogant conclusion to Obama’s whopper of a speech which compared a woman who waited on line to cast her vote for him, with a wounded police war and a woman who looked after newborns during Hurricane Sandy.

In Obama’s America, waiting on line for hours is the new heroism. Sure saving babies and stopping a gunman is nice, but what really matters is voting for more free stuff. And waiting on line is fine for unimportant things, like waiting to see a doctor, but not for important things, like voting for Obama.

“I’m very happy, very proud,” she said, communicating through a translator because she speaks only Haitian Creole.

Is there some moral heroism in ripping off a country that you have never worked in and whose language you have never even learned?
 
Voting for Obama is Just Like Saving Babies or Being Wounded in the Line of Duty





SHOULD CHRIS DORNER BE THE REPUBLICAN NOMINEE IN 2016?

While on the surface this may sound like a risky proposition, let's think about it for a minute.

In his manifesto, Chris Dorner expressed his support for moderate Republicans like Jim Huntsman and Chris Christie, even calling Hunsman his candidate of choice. Dorner is obviously a liberal Republican and we can't afford to pass up a minority member who is also a moderate Republican.

Dorner's candidacy could be just what the Republican Party needs to turn its image around. I know all the negatives, but let's look at the positives first.

Chris Dorner supports gun control and writes about evolving on gay marriage. He's well versed in pop culture and made his manifesto go viral. Those are important skills in a candidate. While we don't know his position on immigration, it's quite possible that despite his dislike of Asians and Mexicans, he might actually be for it making him the perfect moderate Republican.

His support for Obama shows that Dorner has real bipartisan chops and could be able to unite the country after years of petty bickering. 

Unfortunately Dorner is dead, but that's no reason to rule out his candidacy. Running Dorner in 2016 is no crazier than the Republican establishment trying to legalize 11 million Democratic voters or sections of the Conservative blogsphere trying to follow Pat Buchanan into the Leftist Anti-War camp.

I have seen more positive mentions of Glenn Greenwald in one week on conservative blogs than I have in ten years, as bloggers educate themselves on the Great Satan's murderous Drone Rampage against innocent Muslim women and children and they can shortly be expected to begin understanding why the 3,000 people killed on September 11 had it coming and how Israel starts all the wars.

So why not Chris Dorner? If we're going to commit political, moral and intellectual suicide, let's go out in moderate Republican style. The platform is already coming together. Yes to illegal immigration. No to killing terrorists. No to burning serial killers alive in cabins. Yes to internet gambling. Yes to legalizing marijuana. No to the pink elephants in the corner. Yes to peace in our time.




MUSLIM VALENTINE'S DAY IS VERY DIFFERENT

A man has killed his pregnant teenage sister in south Lebanon in what was seen as an honor crime – the murder of a woman accused of shaming her family.

Later on Friday, LBCI television reported that the investigation with Jihad revealed that he had raped his sister, which lead to her pregnancy.

“He confessed to raping his sister,” LBCI said, adding that Jihad claimed he was drunk when the incident happened.

The television channel added that he had only recently found out about the pregnancy and asked his sister to undergo an abortion, but she refused.

LOVE CONQUERS COW

You might be tempted to confuse this tale with Romeo and Juliet. And it is a lot like Romeo and Juliet, or it would be if Juliet’s father had traded her for a cow.

Ali. O, like so many enterprising Korkunians, one afternoon during the Muslim commemoration of Ramadan, decided to make the deal of a lifetime with the stepson of his brother. The stepson would get his daughter and Ali would get a cow. The stepson delivered the cow and now it was time for the next part of the deal.

“I promised, I took the cow. Now you have to get married,” Ali O. told his daughter Guller O.

Like all romantic heroines, Guller did not want to be traded for a cow and fled to her aunt’s house in Ankara, where Ali began making threatening phone calls to her insisting that she go through with the wedding.

YOU MUST BE THIS TALL TO FALL OFF THIS RIDE

Every job has a minimum requirement. The absolute very least that anyone can do without being considered a complete and utter failure.

The minimum requirement for a Commander-in-Chief is to stick around when an American diplomatic mission is under fire. Obama flunked even this minimal requirement by going to sleep and then flying off for a fundraiser in Vegas.

The minimum requirement for a Secretary of State is to at least pretend to care why such an attack took place. Hillary Clinton failed that minimum requirement by declaring that it didn’t matter why the attack happened.

The minimum requirement for a Vice President is to avoid becoming a national embarrassment. Biden has failed miserably at that.

The Democratic Disgrace: It's the New Normal.





LIVING DIVERSITY EVERY DAY

The fight, students say, was the result of long-simmering tensions between the 8 percent of students who are Somali Americans and the 20 percent who are African Americans.

Another student, Symone Glasker, said that an initial fight happened during the school’s first lunch period. She said the fights were over pride.

“I know it’s a pride thing between Muslims and black people,” she said. “They want their pride back for something. I don’t know.”

She also said “boys were hitting girls” and that some people were lying on the floor, with their hands over their heads, in surrender.

Stan Alleyne, the Minneapolis Public Schools chief of communications, gave a statement, saying South High is a school that continually makes the district proud.

“South is a very diverse high school,” Alleyne said. “It is a microcosm of the city. Students function together at a high level every day. That is the strength of this school. Our students live diversity every day.”

This is Minneapolis. This is Minneapolis on diversity.

THE TRUE VOICE OF CONSERVATISM

The pro-Amnesty crowd has taken a break from claiming that legalizing 11 million illegal aliens in the only hope for the Republican Party to target their critics, not with facts and arguments, but with a smear campaign.

The irony of “conservative” groups accusing other conservative groups of compromising their purity by using arguments from the left, while using arguments from the left to make that accusation is obvious. It was the Southern Poverty Law Center that used the eugenics angle in attacking groups critical of immigration policy and tried to tie that in to Nazism. Now the pro-Amnesty crowd is using the eugenics smear to call them radical environmentalists.

How can anyone who supports turning red states blue really claim to be the true voice of conservatism?

HE FOUGHT THE VAMPIRES AND FREED THE BEATLES

It’s natural for Sheila Jackson Lee to be confused. Lincoln did just come out and Sheila probably thinks that he freed the slaves and fought vampires.

The only problem is that Sheila Jackson Lee confused the 1860s with the 1960s when she was actually growing up. Considering that she didn’t know how the Vietnam War ended, that’s not completely shocking, but you would think that she would remember that as a child she did not live on on a plantation.

Sheila Jackson Lee was from the slave-owning state of New York, from a plantation in Jamaica, Queens. (While Jamaica did have slaves, Jamaica, Queens did not, again accounting for Sheila Jackson Lee’s confusion.)

THE 911 THESES

Is scrawling a depiction of 9/11 on the door of a Muslim organization linked to that terrorist attack by way of its ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda a hate crime?

The MSA has always argued that its attacks on Israel are political and protected by free speech. So when the MSA depicts Israel as a Nazi state and terrorists as heroes, it is practicing free speech. The MSA in conjunction with SJP has picketed Holocaust memorials while screaming hate. But that’s not a bias incident. That’s free speech.

So why is a picture of the worst Muslim atrocity in American history a bias incident?

THE OPTOMETRIST WILL TAKE OUT YOUR GALL BLADDER NOW

As the state moves to expand healthcare coverage to millions of Californians under President Obama’s healthcare law, it faces a major obstacle: There aren’t enough doctors to treat a crush of newly insured patients.

Some lawmakers want to fill the gap by redefining who can provide healthcare. They are working on proposals that would allow physician assistants to treat more patients and nurse practitioners to set up independent practices.

Pharmacists and optometrists could act as primary care providers, diagnosing and managing some chronic illnesses, such as diabetes and high-blood pressure.

And the kid down the block who worked as a lifeguard, he can treat your broken leg. The EMT in your neighborhood is now your primary care physician.

California to Deal with ObamaCare Doctor Shortage by Redefining Pharmacists and Optometrists as Doctors



GUESS THE QUOTE SOURCE

As part of al Qaeda, ‘people had the opportunity to make a difference, and that’s a powerful thing’, and in his view, there wasn’t ‘that much of a difference between the terrorists and the counter-terrorists.’ For him, both the CIA and the Base for Islamic Jihad give people the chance to be part of something greater than themselves.

That comes to us from ex-General McChrystal, the man in charge of Obama's Surge. Wonder why it failed.

But there is a Senate seat opening up in MA.




ONLY OBAMA COULD GO TO ISRAEL

Relations between the United States and Turkey have been deteriorating over Obama’s failure to arm the Syrian rebels and get Turkey into the European Union. But Istanbul is probably one of the few places that Obama can still visit.

Cairo and Tunis would have been safe bets a year ago, but now they’re political minefields. Visiting them means endorsing controversial Islamist regimes that are murdering and mutilating protesters. Obama may support their Islamist governments, but the optics are bad. And his visit is sure to touch off even bigger protests, including protests that the authorities may not be able to adequately protect him from. If the Egyptian authorities weren’t able to keep Ahmadinejad from getting shoed twice, then a sneaker or a loafer may find its way to Obama’s face as well. And the media would have trouble covering that one up.

That leaves the dictatorships he initially condemned. A visit to Saudi Arabia or Kuwait would just highlight the failures of the Arab Spring and the continuing support of the United States for tyranny over democracy… etc.

Even if Obama does make quick controlled visits to Cairo or Tunis or any other Arab Spring country, or longer ones to Saudi Arabia or Kuwait, going to Israel will lessen the optics problem by providing him with political cover and make it harder to read political messages into the trip.

Why is Obama Going to Israel?




EGYPT LOCKS UP DUMBEST MAN IN ISRAEL

Pshenichnikov told The Associated Press. “I call for other Israelis who support the existence of a state of Palestine to do the same, to come live in the West Bank or Gaza as Palestinians.”

Residents say he was initially treated with suspicion. Many Palestinians suspected him of being an Israeli spy and Palestinian officials eventually handed him over to Israeli authorities. But Pshenichnikov remained undeterred, returning to Deheishe where was apprehended by Palestinian forces and handed over to Israel again.

An Egyptian court sentenced an Israeli to two years in prison Monday, months after arresting him for sneaking into the Sinai in an attempt to enter Gaza.

Pshenichnikov, who immigrated to Israel with his family from Tadjikistan 13 years ago, caused a stir last year when he declared that he wished to renounce his Israeli citizenship and adopt Palestinian citizenship.

“I hate Zionism,” he told the Associated Press in June 2012. “I want to be part of the Palestinian resistance.”

DIRECTING CIVILIZATION

Chiheb Battikh is many things. He is listed as the head of the Education Department for the Muslim Association of Canada, on its Springs of Knowledge website and as the Director of the Canadian Institute of Islamic Civilization (Montreal chapter). The CIIIC appears to be a project of the MAC.

Among all his other good work, Chiheb Battikh is also allegedly the man who tried to kidnap a 3-year-old boy for ransom.

CURSE OF THE TIMERMANS

Hector Timerman has once again proven that he is a true son of his father, Jacobo Timerman. Jacobo achieved leftist sainthood due to his supposed torture by the Argentinian government for his left-wing activities, in a region where the line between the left and the leftist terrorist is often blurry.

That would not be interesting in and of itself, but Jacobo Timerman wrapped his claims of martyrdom in the cloak of anti-semitism, claiming that he had been singled out because he was a Jew. He even compared what was going on in Argentina to a new Holocaust.

Timerman moved to Israel where he wrote his martyrdom biography and then he wrote another book denouncing Israel for being just like Nazi Germany. “We’re all Palestinians,” Argentina’s worst export ever screeched. “I have discovered in Jews a capacity for cruelty that I never believed possible … I fear that in our collective subconscious we are not perhaps repelled by the possibility of a Palestinian genocide.”

Kerry Can’t Get Russia to Return His Phone Calls

On Wednesday, one reporter suggested that it seems Kerry has been “frantically trying to call Foreign Minister Lavrov,” but State’s press secretary retorted, “There’s been nothing frantic about it. He reached out to Foreign Minister Lavrov yesterday [and] made it clear that he’s ready to talk whenever Foreign Minister Lavrov has the time.”

And that’s how you know you’re a world power. When another country calls you and offers to talk whenever you have the time.

 LIVE OR DIE

Until I was a victim of Arab terrorism it seemed more "something that only happens to others."  Even though it had happened at a time when there were many Arab terror attacks, most common were the suicide bus bombers, I did not go around thinking that "my time would be soon," or that there would be a "my time" at all.  I'm not really paranoid.  I'm just an ordinary relatively pragmatic person.

Unexpectedly, the attack, and my minor injury did not increase my personal fear and worry.  I actually felt calmer about my personal safety.  Being a victim of such an attack reinforced the knowledge that I have no control.  The Arab terrorists control the actual time and place and G-d controls the results, whether we live, die, suffer permanent or minor injuries.

HAPPINESS

Lawrence Auster's condition has spread to his brain. Auster has written a great deal about illegal immigration and Islamic terrorism. Here he writes about his thoughts on his condition.

On the basis of my policy of always speaking what I think is the truth, even a truth that sounds very odd, so long as it is of value and not inappropriate, I have to say that right now I am happy. And, based on the way I feel now, I see the possibilility that the journey toward my death will be happy. I don’t know that it will be. It could be horrible. But it could be happy, a peaceful opening-up toward an ever-new fulfillment that perhaps will only truly begin with death.





THE INDUSTRY OF GOVERNMENT

He is a man who, like Marxists everywhere, does not recognize basic psychology. Obama and his fellow travelers believe that man is motivated purely by materialism, by physical need and desires. The spiritual dimension is of no consequence. The infinite mirrors of human consciousness is reflexively reduced to a specific political ideology. Individual aspirations and achievements have been rewritten as the work of an amorphous collective, the Obama we.

Obama is steeped in a rigid political agenda. Like a Stalinist bureaucrat, or a mad, narcissistic New Age preacher, he plows over dissent and ignores economic realities, all the while scorning and caricaturing the very beliefs and values he claims to represent. His is the utopian dream world of the prosperous political class whose lives are dedicated to a bloated, dogma-ridden, authoritarian government.

In Obama’s America we no longer make stuff in order to prosper and live a better life.

In Obama’s America, we manufacture government in order to make more government.

PARTY WITHOUT A HEAD

Since 2008 I’ve typed my fingers hoarse on how the GOP is well and truly dead and has been since McCain. Sure, the GOP has community level offices. Offices that are not involved in the community, are not bringing value to their constituents, but that are really good at holding their hat in their hand and asking for support.

They local GOP dons are greedy to move up the political power ladder, but they do it by sheer dint of personality and powerful connections, never thinking to build a base of ordinary, decent, conservative voters. Lazy, selfish, and clueless, they never look around or down to see who they can actually help. The hoi-polloi are too grimy for their country club standards. I’m sorry, but the GOP owns that visual logo, even if Conservatives do not.

It still remains, however, that Conservatives happily sent their children to public schools while they chased after ever more crap to fill the void in their life that sprang from where they left the church pew and left off having more children. So, the GOP’s natural growth base is lost to the Narrative, and the imported, unwashed masses are mere pets in the GOP’s estimation. Throw ‘em a bone now and again. Why that’s good enough for any dog, but it’s no way to treat human beings. Or win hearts and minds.

A sensible rule of thumb on immigration policy should be that if a country is a fundamentally violent and broken place, then importing large numbers of its inhabitants will only spread that violence to the United States.
