Obama & Terrorist trials: Arrogance and Dishonesty

"Me, I'm dishonest, and you can always trust a dishonest man to be dishonest. Honestly, it's the honest ones you want to watch out for, 'cause you can never predict if they're going to do something incredibly stupid."
-Captain Jack Sparrow, Pirates of the Carribean

am so fed up with our President's blatant dishonesty and his arrogance. He says whatever he wants whenever he wants without regard to whether he will follow through. Then, to boot, he acts like he is being so reasonable and his critics are misinformed and being unreasonable. We saw this behavior with the health care debate and now we are seeing it with the terrorist trials. Check out this video where Obama in 2006 said Khalid Sheikh Mohammed would receive a military trial, his lying is absolutely stunning:

Obama does whatever is good for himself in the moment without regard to honesty or principle. This is dangerous for our country. We need to vote out all of the politicians that behave this way.

These trials are going to be terrible for our efforts against terrorists:

Eric Holder's decision to move a trial on war crimes to American soil is morally confused, dangerous and political to a fault.

If military commissions are unjust, why is he still using them? If not, why aren't they good enough for KSM?

Obamacare: Invasion of the Body Snatchers

"Look! You fools! You’re in danger! Can’t you see? They’re after you! They’re after all of us! Our wives…our children… [our healthcare] ...they’re here already! You’re next!—"
-Dr. Miles J. Bennell, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, 1956.

This scary possibility has become a reality as the government is not only "helping" the uninsured receive "health care," they will in effect be mandating the kind of care everyone will receive. This public option will quickly become a system of no options when choosing your care. If you think it's bad now with Doctors and the AMA all but purchased by the highest bidding pharmaceutical company, wait until you put elected politicians in charge of health care. From reproductive care, to prescriptions, to vaccinations, the public option will be government mandated public health policy forced on you.

Tea Party: CNN shows its true colors


This sort of makes me sick because it displays so clearly what we all felt and knew to be true for at least the past 4 years of the Bush administration: that is that the main stream media "MSM" including the likes of CNN and many others acted as the catalyst and useful idiots for the liberals' campaign against Bush. By both disrespecting him personally with libel and slander and disrespecting the office of president, the unfettered media coverage of Bush bashing was oft reported without any question or filter and rather placed in the forefront so frequently that people began to believe that everyone hated the guy and he became a practical nationwide persona-non-grata.

Now we have CNN reporter Susan Roesgen caught mid-stride in live coverage of a Tea Party showing her true colors along with the most blatant hypocrisy I have seen in quite some time from a journalist.

You must see these clips:

This is a unique time for the true conservative movement: those that believe in constitutional limits to government power and the tightly defined role of government.

Tea Party: James Wolcott is WRONG.

It has been a while since I have posted here. In light of the recent tax day Tea Parties nationwide I can't resist. As a long time student organizer with conservative causes and the college republicans, I know how hard it is to get conservatives to show up to a rally or protest despite LOTS of organization and coordinating. These tea parties were a huge success for one reason: people care DEEPLY about this issue. Conservatives are way too practical to show up to a protest or rally. Most don't think they are worth the time or effort. Many don't feel they do anything or are effective. I know this because I have felt that way and I have seen it first hand as I have tried to organize events. The fact that these tea parties got this kind of turnout is a phenomenal thing. People, especially government officials, democrats, liberals, the mainstream media, etc., really don't know what is happening. The problem is they look at these events through lenses colored by their experience with liberal demonstrations (the sixties, anti-war protests, gay rights protests, anti-bush protests, etc.). While these demonstrations yesterday were not as big as many of those liberal movements in the past, the difference is that these protests were done by conservatives: people who don't usually show up and protest. They are NOT the same. This is a radical shift in the norm. Additionally, these protests were not merely anti-Obama or anti-democrat. There was plenty of criticism shared by Republicans. This feeling in America right now, primarily by conservatives, is a big deal if people who never go to protests show up. We can all understand idyllic young college students showing up to protest a war, but these protests had retired professionals at them. My 68 year old landlord went to one! This is really going to be a big deal. This will translate into a huge mid term election in 2010 where incumbents from both parties will lose in party nominating procedures, primary battles, and general elections. If that post 2010 election shift doesn't satiate these crowds and things in the economy don't change then even bigger things will happen in 2012. Right now I am predicting Obama will lose in 2012 and there may even be a third party congressman who will win a seat in 2010 or 2012 in some district like Montana, New Hampshire, Vermont, or Texas.

Take this guy: James Wolcott of Vanity Fair. Classic ignorant-big-city-coast-dwelling-liberal who is so New York-centric that he has no idea what this is about. He is just plain wrong. What he says seems to make sense if your frame of reference is a former sixties liberal journalist who now lives in New York and writes for Vanity Fair.
