Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Brits: Hey, let’s not say “mother” and “father” in school, m’kay?

Euros have decided it’s both presumptuous and offensive to attribute two heterosexual parents to a schoolchild…even if 99% of them do indeed have a mother and father.  From the UK:

Teachers should not assume that their pupils have a “mum and dad” under guidance aimed at tackling anti-gay bullying in schools.

It says primary pupils as young as four should be familiarised with the idea of same-sex couples to help combat homophobic attitudes.

Teachers should attempt to avoid assumptions that pupils will have a conventional family background, it urges.

It goes on to suggest the word “parents” may be more appropriate than “mum and dad”, particularly in letters and emails to the child’s home.  

Well, we’d certainly hate for Little Nigel’s fathers to get their #ssless chaps in a bunch, now wouldn’t we?  Why, if Little Jane’s mommies get word that “parents” was used in school, they’d have her out of there lickety split!

Thanks to PabloD for the tip.

Bubba: Wreck the economy for Mother Gaia

If you ever needed proof that the global “warming” crowd was championed by anti-capitalists (among other miscreants), then look no further than the former Diddler-in-Chief:

Bill: “We Just Have to Slow Down Our Economy” to Fight Global Warming

Former President Bill Clinton was in Denver, Colorado, stumping for his wife yesterday.

In a long, and interesting speech, he characterized what the U.S. and other industrialized nations need to do to combat global warming this way: “We just have to slow down our economy and cut back our greenhouse gas emissions ’cause we have to save the planet for our grandchildren.”

At a time that the nation is worried about a recession is that really the characterization his wife would want him making? “Slow down our economy”? 

Exit question: Does his wife really want him saying stuff like this, tipping off the “great unwashed” to their leftist schemes while she’s trying to con America into voting for her Marxist #ss?

CNN: Pity the unemployed who buy big TV’s

Personal responsibility has never been a priority for the left, and the Clinton News Network illustrates it thusly:

CNN’s January 30 “American Morning” mentioned retailers were cutting prices to get customers to purchase more, but no one during the broadcast had a problem with one unemployed woman buying one of those fancy televisions.


“Veronica McNeil has two kids,” said Cho. “She recently lost her job. Her husband’s an ironworker and the family is feeling the pinch.”


McNeil revealed that a good discount would be her weakness.


“If I’m here to buy baby stuff and I see a TV at a good sale price, I’ll grab it,” McNeil said.


Cho pointed toward “rising gas and home heating oil prices and Americans losing their homes” for money being “tight.” Personal responsibility and wise financial decisions were lost on Cho.

Sometimes, words are unnecessary to point out the lunacy of the left.

NH fishwrap: Hillary’s a liar

In other news, ice is cold.  From NH:

COURTING VOTERS in Iowa and New Hampshire, last August Sen. Hillary Clinton signed a pledge not to “campaign or participate” in the Michigan or Florida Democratic primaries. She participated in both primaries and is campaigning in Florida. Which proves, again, that Hillary Clinton is a liar…

Clinton coldly and knowingly lied to New Hampshire and Iowa. Her promise was not a vague statement. It was a signed pledge with a clear and unequivocal meaning.

She signed it thinking that keeping the other candidates out of Michigan and Florida was to her advantage, but knowing she would break it if that proved beneficial later on. It did, and she did.

New Hampshire voters, you were played for suckers. 

If anyone didn’t think that Shrillary was a filthy liar, then I’ve got some swampland to sell them.

It matters not that Her Highness is as morally bankrupt as her hubby.  She’ll get votes simply because she (presumably) has a vagina, as Ugly Betty has shown us.  If there’s any comedy gold to be had here, it’s Jean-Francois Heinz-Kerry (who is rumored to have served in Vietnam) rapping the Hildebeast for…I couldn’t make this up if I tried…flip-flopping on her Florida pledge!

FL had a “closed” primary?

In my state, you are only allowed to vote in party primaries if you are a registered voter of that party.  I used to be registered as an independent and then a Libertarian, until the election of 1996.  I wanted to vote for Steve Forbes in the primary, but Bob Dole was selected.  It was at that time I registered as a Republican, just so I could vote in primaries.

Yesterday, Juan McAmnesty won in FL’s primary, which is supposed to be a closed primary.  I have to wonder just how “closed” it really is, after seeing this

In northern Coral Springs, near the Sawgrass Expressway and Coral Ridge Drive, David Nirenberg arrived to vote as an independent. Nevertheless, he said poll workers insisted he choose a party ballot.

“He said to me, ‘Are you Democrat or Republican?’ I said, ‘Neither, I am independent.’ He said, ‘Well, you have to pick one,”’ Nirenberg said.

In Florida, only those who declare a party are allowed to cast a vote in that party’s presidential primary.

Nirenberg said he tried to explain to the poll worker that he should not vote on a party ballot because of his “no party affiliation” status.

Nirenberg said a second poll worker was called over who agreed that independents should not use party ballots, but said they had received instructions to the contrary.

“He said, ‘Ya know, that is kind of funny, but it was what we were told.’ … I was shocked when they told me that.” Nirenberg said he went ahead and voted for John McCain

…and this:

One breakout that puzzles me though is the vote share by party identification.  Romney and McCain were tied among Republicans at 33-33, while McCain won independents 44-23.  (See page 4 of the exit poll.)

FlexitpollIf I’m reading the poll correctly, it suggests 17% of Republican primary voters identified themselves as having no major party affiliation, while 3% identified themselves as registered Democrats. 

I’m not much on conspiracy theories, so I won’t dwell on this.  I do wonder, though, that if all the polls that show how the base is p#ssed at McLame are true, how did he win in a “closed” primary?  I mean, NH and SC are both open primaries, meaning that “indepedents” can vote in them (and indies love themselves some Johnny Mac).  But FL?  I’m still trying to figure that one out.

Anywho, pardon my pessimism, but I think Juan’s got the nomination wrapped up.  Schmuckabee’s done, but he probably won’t throw in the towel like Rudy did this morning.  Rudy seems to be backing McAmnesty.  Super Tuesday will feature a lot of Southern states, and the South by and large doesn’t seem too keen on Romney (from MA).  Delegate-heavy California also votes next Tuesday, and Juan’s doing quite well out there, too.  Ugh…I need a drink.

Trannies gather in Gainesville

Wonder no more why I refer to UF’s town as Gaysville!  From Hogtown’s fishwrap:

City Hall was buzzing Monday night with both protest and support for a proposed city ordinance that would include gender identity as a class of people protected from discrimination in housing, employment and public accommodation.

The auditorium had standing-room only, as did the entryway where a large crowd watched the decision on closed-circuit television. The vast majority of those who spoke on the issue were against the ordinance.

Those in favor of the ordinance lauded it as a step toward increased human rights for transgender individuals, who some said are marginalized in society.

The ordinance would add gender identity as a category of people protected from discrimination. Discrimination based on race, religion, sexual orientation and gender are already outlawed in Gainesville.

City officials defined gender identity as a situation where people have an inner sense of being a gender other than their gender at birth.

Like I said before, this issue is simple: if you’re born with a schlong, you’re male, and if not, you’re female. Glad I could clear up such a complex scientific problem.

Sheryl Crow: My words were Karl Rove’s fault

Recall last year when moonbat entertainer Sheryl Crow proposed that we help preserve Mother Gaia by wiping our tushes with one square of toilet paper?  While it may have taken her nearly a year to float her conspiracy theory, this nugget of comedy gold is truly “better late than never”!  From the Coalition of the Swilling:

The ‘Single Sheet’ Whitehouse Plot

…and it’s straight from the horsey mouth. (Proving, yet again, there is nothing too small for the maestro’s evil Rovian machinations.)

Last spring, you were held up as a parody of environmental correctness when you proposed restricting the use of toilet paper to one square per bathroom visit. What was that about? I think it’s a fantastic and eye-opening example of how the media is operated by political figures, of how Karl Rove was humiliated in the media and how, within 24 hours, he was able to humiliate me and take any sort of credibility away from me.

What are you saying? You think Karl Rove leaked the toilet-paper story to the press after you and Laurie David sparred with him about global warming at the White House correspondents’ dinner? I cannot tie him directly to that leak, but within 24 hours of our exchange, as we were leaving D.C., it was on the CNN ticker tape: “Sheryl Crow has proposed that we legislate toilet paper to one square.”

Did you ever actually suggest that? It was always a joke. It was part of a shtick…” 

Rove, you evil b#stard, you!  Will your malevolence stop at nothing?

Feminuts henpeck Kennedrunk over Osamabama endorsement

If there’s ever a classic example of how feminists, like other leftards, “feel, not think”, this would be it:

Women have just experienced the ultimate betrayal. Senator Kennedy’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton’s opponent in the Democratic presidential primary campaign has really hit women hard. Women have forgiven Kennedy, stuck up for him, stood by him, hushed the fact that he was late in his support of Title IX, the ERA, the Family Leave and Medical Act to name a few…

And now the greatest betrayal! We are repaid with his abandonment! He’s picked the new guy over us. He’s joined the list of progressive white men who can’t or won’t handle the prospect of a woman president who is Hillary Clinton (they will of course say they support a woman president, just not “this” one)…

This latest move by Kennedy, is so telling about the status of and respect for women’s rights, women’s voices, women’s equality, women’s authority and our ability – indeed, our obligation – to promote and earn and deserve and elect, unabashedly, a President that is the first woman after centuries of men who “know what’s best for us.”  (As opposed to voting for the first woman who “knows what’s best for us”? – Ed.) 

That’s right, my friends.  You can be a grotesque cretin like Kennedy, but if you pay your “indulgence fee” by voting for The Sister in the race, all is well among the “women” (and I use that term loosely) who look out for “women’s rights”!  That must explain why the NAGs still like Bubba.

Anywho, our trolls “helpful editors” here at the Crush Liberalism Objective World News Service (CLOWNS) suggested the womynists add the following bold lines, but the wild-eyed vagitarians weren’t having it:

Women have forgiven Kennedy, stuck up for him, stood by him, hushed the fact that he was late in his support of Title IX, the ERA, the Family Leave and Medical Act; ignored the fact that he and Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT) forced themselves onto a waitress at La Brasserie  in order to make a “waitress sandwich”; and completely and collectively erased the memory of the murder of Mary Jo Kopechne by leaving her to die a slow watery death while he paced the roadside in a drunken stupor to ponder the ramifications on his political career…to name a few.

Damn feminutjob editors!

FL primary

Florida has its primary today.  Recent polls show a Romney surge, but by and large, most show he and McLame within the margin of error of each other, with a fair number of people undecided.  If Rudy doesn’t win FL (and if polls are any indicator, I don’t think he will), he’ll likely drop out, since he put all his eggs in this basket.

As for McAmnesty, fellow open borders Senate colleagues Lindsey Grahamnesty and Senor Mel Martinez have endorsed him.  If that’s not reason enough to vote against the guy, I don’t know what is.

Shrillary: Bubba attacks Obama because he loves me

I probably should have given you a beverage warning before putting up that headline.  Well, here’s your beverage warning now, because Ace strikes:

Here is Hill in her own words:

Clinton was asked on CBS television’s “Face the Nation” whether her husband was “out of control” after he took the Illinois senator, and the media to task, during a foul-tempered week-long campaign.”You know, my husband has such a great commitment to me and to my campaign,” the New York senator said.

“He loves me just like, you know, husbands and wives get out there and work on each others’ behalf.”

She blamed the tensions of the tight battle for the party’s presidential nomination

“Maybe he got a little carried away. You know, that comes with a hard-fought election,” she said.

Now this is the section of the blog where you expect cogent, thoughtful analysis. Perhaps a bit of psychoanalysis even.

Well, my friends, I will not disappoint you. As a trusted political pundit, you can get my in-depth thoughts after the jump.

BWAH-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

My husband “has such a great commitment to me….” HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

*Can’t Breathe…Laughing to hard*

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA!
HAHAHAHHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

He loves me...”

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

Husbands and wives get out there and work on each others’ behalf….”

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Oh man….you can’t make stuff like this up. She can’t be serious.

Can she?

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

Man, that’s rich!

British doctors: We can’t afford to help everyone

In Clintonesque fashion, I guess “universal health care” depends on the meaning of the word “universal”, right?  From the UK:

Doctors are calling for NHS treatment to be withheld from patients who are too old or who lead unhealthy lives.

Smokers, heavy drinkers, the obese and the elderly should be barred from receiving some operations, according to doctors, with most saying the health service cannot afford to provide free care to everyone.

“Screw old people!”  That’s good advice.  I mean, they’re gonna die sometime soon anyway, right?  Why waste valuable time and resources on these wastes of oxygen?  For those of you on the left, the prior sentences were displays of sarcasm.

Yeah, let’s trumpet the virtues of the UK’s socialized medicine.  After all, there’s no reason to think that the same thing would happen here in America if we had socialized medicine, now is there?

Chelsea Clinton accessible, if you give $ to Mama’s campaign

If only that little girl who wanted to talk to Chelsea but was told to take a hike would have known this, she might have been “honored” with Chelsea’s presence.  Too little, too late, I suppose.  Anywho, from Chels at her old lady’s campaign blog:

I love talking to people who are thinking about supporting my mom — about why I believe in her and why I support her as a young American, a woman, and her daughter!

I also love talking to people who already support my mom’s campaign. Every day, when people tell me they’re voting for my mom, putting their faith in her, using their voice to encourage others to support her and working hard for her, I grow more proud.

I’ve been campaigning with her across the country — and I’m definitely planning on being at the next debate. Would you like to join me?

The campaign is picking an online supporter to watch the January 31 debate in Los Angeles with me and to meet my mom. I know she’ll be thrilled to meet you — she is so grateful for how much every supporter has done for her campaign.

With the biggest day of this campaign in just 12 days, there has never been a more important time to contribute. I hope you’ll help my mom’s campaign prepare for February 5!

Enter before midnight on Saturday, and you might join me at the next presidential debate!

Maybe the little girl should have pretended to be a Chinese dishwasher?  Then again, Shrillary would be expecting a $20k+ donation if that were the case.  Never mind.

McCain hires open borders advocate for his campaign

For “Hispanic community outreach”, no less.  Heck, I figured his “I’ll pay you $50/hr to pick lettuce” would be a sufficient display of Hispandering, but he decided to take it a step further.

In case you think I’m being facetious with the label “open borders advocate”, here’s the man’s own words:

Dr. Hernandez is on the record, on his own web site no less, favoring the free flow of people between the United States and Mexico. The following quote is set off in large red letters on Hernandez’s web site.

We must not only have a free flow of goods and services, but also start working for a free flow of people.

Hernandez is also on the record advocating a “Mexico first” policy for Mexican-Americans who have been living in the US for generations. The Soros-connected former Mexican cabinet officer is also on the record as seeing the US, Mexico and Canada as a bloc or region within which there shouldn’t be borders. Unless those policies sync with McCain’s, Hernandez does not agree with McCain’s policies. He might be on the senator’s staff for some other reason, but policy agreement isn’t it. Unless, of course, McCain agrees with Hernandez’s policies. And if that’s the case, the voters ought to know about it. 

Johnny Mac is feigning ignorance on this one.  But yeah, go ahead and believe McAmnesty when he says he will “secure the border” first.

Kennedy to endorse Obama

According to the NYT, Ted Kennedrunk is going to throw his ample weight behind Osamabama.  This should help Obama curry favor with that coveted “drunken murdering Marxist buffoon” segment of the electorate.  Sought for her take on Sen.

Noonan: Bush destroyed GOP

I’ve been saying this for a while, although Noonan seems to imply that the damage is virtually permanent.  I don’t think it is, but it is certainly near-term, if not long-term.  From Peggy Noonan:

On the pundit civil wars, Rush Limbaugh declared on the radio this week, “I’m here to tell you, if either of these two guys [Mr. McCain or Mike Huckabee] get the nomination, it’s going to destroy the Republican Party. It’s going to change it forever, be the end of it!”

This is absurd. George W. Bush destroyed the Republican Party, by which I mean he sundered it, broke its constituent pieces apart and set them against each other. He did this on spending, the size of government, war, the ability to prosecute war, immigration and other issues.

Were there other causes? Yes, of course. But there was an immediate and essential cause.

And this needs saying, because if you don’t know what broke the elephant you can’t put it together again. The party cannot re-find itself if it can’t trace back the moment at which it became lost. It cannot heal an illness whose origin is kept obscure.

She’s right.  The problem, though, is credibility.  When I see the main Republicans in the presidential race talk, I hear some of Dubya’s faux conservatism (in Huckabee) and McCain’s RINO-itis (global “warming” is real, we need open borders, etc.), and I cringe.  When I hear Romney and Rudy and talk about a return to fiscal conservatism, I think “You’re right, but good luck convincing people that twelve years of legislative rule, six of which with a Republican president, that yielded the doubling of the size of the federal government is just going to magically go away overnight.”  The GOP just isn’t as convincing with that message as it used to be.

Unlike Noonan, though, I wouldn’t say that the damage is irreversible…but it’s not over yet, either.

Morris: Shrillary needs race war in order to win Dem nomination

This is one of the richest desserts ever made: a huge double scoop of irony, drizzled with hypocrisy, and sprinkled generously with shamelessness.  From Dick Morris:

Hillary Clinton will undoubtedly lose the South Carolina primary as African-Americans line up to vote for Barack Obama. And that defeat will power her drive to the nomination.

The Clintons are encouraging the national media to disregard the whites who vote in South Carolina’s Democratic primary and focus on the black turnout, which is expected to be quite large. They have transformed South Carolina into Washington, D.C. — an all-black primary that tells us how the African-American vote is going to go.

By saying he will go door to door in black neighborhoods in South Carolina matching his civil rights record against Obama’s, Bill Clinton emphasizes the pivotal role the black vote will play in the contest. And by openly matching his record on race with that of the black candidate, he invites more and more scrutiny focused on the race issue.

Of course, Clinton is going to lose that battle. Blacks in Nevada overwhelmingly backed Obama and will obviously do so again in South Carolina, no matter how loudly former President Clinton protests. So why is he making such a fuss over a contest he knows he’s going to lose?

Precisely because he is going to lose it. If Hillary loses South Carolina and the defeat serves to demonstrate Obama’s ability to attract a bloc vote among black Democrats, the message will go out loud and clear to white voters that this is a racial fight. It’s one thing for polls to show, as they now do, that Obama beats Hillary among African-Americans by better than 4-to-1 and Hillary carries whites by almost 2-to-1. But most people don’t read the fine print on the polls. But if blacks deliver South Carolina to Obama, everybody will know that they are bloc-voting. That will trigger a massive white backlash against Obama and will drive white voters to Hillary Clinton.

Obama has done everything he possibly could to keep race out of this election. And the Clintons attracted national scorn when they tried to bring it back in by attempting to minimize the role Martin Luther King Jr. played in the civil rights movement. But here they have a way of appearing to seek the black vote, losing it, and getting their white backlash, all without any fingerprints showing. The more President Clinton begs black voters to back his wife, and the more they spurn her, the more the election becomes about race — and Obama ultimately loses. … 

Got that?  The party that has, for the last couple of decades or so, convinced black Americans that the GOP is racist and doesn’t have their best interests at heart is now engaged in a full blown race war, pitting white Democrats against black Democrats.  “Vote for Hillary, because she’s not black!”

Predictable exit question: If a Republican had adopted the same strategy (“Vote for me, because I’m white!”), wouldn’t the media howl louder than Ted Kennedy after a dozen amaretto sours?

Moonbats to spend $8.5 million against Bush

I don’t know how to break it to these “enlightened” feeblepusses, but the man has less than a year left in his presidency and cannot run again.  But hey, if blowing nearly nine mill soothes their lunacy-laced gourds, then who am I to rain on their parade?  Excerpt:

A liberal advocacy group plans to spend $8.5 million in a drive to make sure President Bush’s public approval doesn’t improve as his days in the White House come to an end.

Americans United for Change plans to undertake a yearlong campaign, spending the bulk of the money on advertising, to keep public attention on what the group says are the failures of the Bush administration, including the war in Iraq, the response to Hurricane Katrina, and the current mortgage crisis.

In selling the plan to fundraisers, the group has argued that support for President Reagan was at a low of 42 percent in 1987 but climbed to 63 percent before he left office. “All of a sudden he became a rallying cry for conservatives and their ideology,” said Brad Woodhouse, president of the group. “Progressives are still living with that.”

The group is a nonprofit corporation that made a splash by airing ads against Bush’s plans to overhaul Social Security in 2005. The group has conducted polls and focus groups and is now raising money for their anti-Bush effort. It gave a Power Point presentation to representatives of about 30 liberal and labor organizations last week.

It plans to announce the campaign at a press conference Thursday afternoon during a forum featuring liberal critics of the administration. It also aims to air its first ad in advance of Bush’s State of the Union speech on Monday. 

Let that display of paranoia sink in for a minute.  The man’s approval ratings right now are hovering around 30% or so.  Reports say that we’re slouching towards a possible recession.  No one likes his “comprehensive immigration reform” plan.  And these deranged morons on the left have such a profound fear that his approval ratings will double in the coming months that they’re going to blow a few million bucks?

Moonbatz iz dumm!

Shrillary and Obama war heating up

I enjoy some hot blue-on-blue action, as much as anyone does, but dude…this is scorching!  I’m giddier than Larry Craig in a cop-free bathroom stall!

Check out this whine from Bill Clinton:

But the former president, stumping in South Carolina on his wife’s behalf, hurled a venomous new broadside against the Illinois senator.

“I never heard a word of public complaint when Mr. Obama said Hillary was not truthful, no character, was poll-driven,” he told startled reporters. 

Um…because it’s all true?  I’m just sayin’.

Bubba commences to scold the press:

“They are feeding you this because they know this is what you want to cover. This is what you live for,” he told CNN reporter Jessica Yellin, who asked him for a response to Harpootlian at an appearance in South Carolina. “They just spin you up on this and you happily go along,” Clinton said. As aides steered him away, he scolded: “Shame on you.” 

Check out Leaky Leahy’s take on it:

In Washington, Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick J. Leahy (D-Vt.), who endorsed Obama last week, castigated the former president for what he called his “glib cheap shots” at Obama, saying both sides should settle down but placing the blame predominantly on Clinton.

“That’s beneath the dignity of a former president,” Leahy told reporters, adding: “He is not helping anyone, and certainly not helping the Democratic Party.” 

Got that?  Diddling an intern, lying under oath, and a pattern of corruption are things that are not “beneath the dignity of a former president”, but a public temper tantrum is.  Those Dems and their moral compasses, eh?

Dems are petrified that this bitter battle between Barry O and Her Highness could divide the party during the general election.  We should be so lucky.

McCain not a big hit back home

From Arizona:

Arizona Senator John McCain may be doing well in national polls but the folks back home that know him best don’t seem to agree. According to a straw poll taken on Saturday, January 19 of 721 Republican Precinct Committeemen from Maricopa County, Arizona, McCain’s home county, at their annual county meeting, 59.2% found him unacceptable for the GOP presidential nomination and only 11% find him acceptable.

The poll asked the Republican Precinct Committeemen, who are elected by their fellow Republicans to represent their local precinct in the Maricopa County Republican Party, who would be their first choice for the Republican presidential nomination, 26% selected Mitt Romney, 17% are for Fred Thompson, who dropped his candidacy today, 16% for Ron Paul, 13% for Duncan Hunter who withdrew his candidacy later that same day, followed by Arizona’s own Senator, John McCain, with only 11% support. Only Rudy Giuliani and Mike Huckabee had less support then McCain among the Maricopa County Republicans at 9% each.

The next question asked the Republican Precinct Committeemen who they found to be unacceptable for the GOP presidential nomination, McCain came in first with 59.2% of the 721 Republican party activist in McCain’s home county. McCain was followed by Ron Paul with 54.9%, Rudy Giuliani 49.5%, Mike Huckabee 47.1%, Duncan Hunter 21.6%, Fred Thompson 21% and, Mitt Romney with 16.7%. 

I love the fresh smell of schadenfreude in the morning!

Supreme Court to Muslim inmate: Get over it

A victory for common sense, although regrettably not a unanimous one.  From the AP:

The Supreme Court said Tuesday that a Muslim inmate cannot sue the government over the disappearance of the prisoner’s copies of the Quran and a prayer rug.

In a 5-4 ruling, the justices said the federal law the inmate relied on prohibits lawsuits against federal corrections officers.

Abdus-Shahid M.S. Ali says the missing books and rug reflect widespread harassment against Muslim inmates in federal, state and local prisons stemming from the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

“Reports from all over the country have come in” on Muslims’ religious property that “has been destroyed, confiscated, looted, lost, stolen or taken without cause,” Ali said in the lawsuit he filed in federal court.

Ali is serving a sentence of 20 years to life in prison for committing first-degree murder in the District of Columbia. 

Well bless his little murderous heart!  Those mean ol’ criminals took his Koran!  Just what is our criminal justice system coming to when they let thieves into prison?  Anywho, the sob story continues:

The issue in the case was whether federal prison guards are immune from suit under the Federal Tort Claims Act.

The law blocks lawsuits against the government over goods detained by customs and excise officers or “any other law enforcement officer.” Two lower federal courts said Ali cannot sue because prison officials are law enforcement officers.

Justice Clarence Thomas, writing for a majority that cut across ideological grounds, agreed with the lower courts. The law “forecloses lawsuits against the United States for the unlawful detention of property by ‘any,’ not just ‘some,’ law enforcement officers,” Thomas said.

Tuesday’s ruling was the first 5-4 split of the term, following a term in which the margin in 24 cases was a single vote.

Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Samuel Alito, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Antonin Scalia joined Thomas. The dissenters were Justices Stephen Breyer, Anthony Kennedy, David Souter and John Paul Stevens. 

Oh my Allah!  The incredibly rare display of common sense by Race Baiter Ginsburg notwithstanding, the leftists (and yes, that includes Justice Kennedy) on the Supreme Court just can’t get a damned thing right, can they?

MSM runs Soros group’s “study” as “news”

Again.  From Texas Rainmaker:

Here we go again. Now that the economy is overtaking Iraq as the issue most voters claim to be concerned with, the Left has to yank Iraq back into the limelight. Here comes a study is being published claiming President Bush and his staff lied about Iraq to get us into war under false pretenses. And the AP is right there to report it.

A study by two nonprofit journalism organizations found that President Bush and top administration officials issued hundreds of false statements about the national security threat from Iraq in the two years following the 2001 terrorist attacks.

The study concluded that the statements “were part of an orchestrated campaign that effectively galvanized public opinion and, in the process, led the nation to war under decidedly false pretenses.”

The real story is, once again, who’s behind the organizations publishing the report in the first place. The two organizations are the Center for Public Integrity and the Fund for Independence in Journalism.

The Center for Public Integrity is funded by The Open Society Institute… yes, the same Open Society Institute founded by George Soros.

And the Fund for Independence in Journalism’s self-described primary purpose is “providing legal defense and endowment support for the largest nonprofit, investigative reporting institution in the world, the Center for Public Integrity, and possibly other, similar groups.”

Another day, another Soros-funded, anti-Bush study being touted by the water-carrying MSM.

It’s a good thing that the MSM has “multiple layers of fact-checking” at their disposal, isn’t it?  Otherwise, someone may get the crazy idea that the MSM has some kind of agenda.  And of course, we should question the results of a study funded by a man who says that bringing down Bush is “is the central focus of my life”, “a matter of life and death”, and that he’s  “willing to put my money where my mouth is.”  That kind of bias couldn’t possibly manifest itself in a “study”, now could it?

Nope…no liberal media bias!

Thousands march, MSM ignores

Had it been a protest of a dozen Code Pinkos on Walter Reed, the MSM would have been all over that like Ted Kennedy on a tray of Jello shots.  Instead, the MSM largely yawns.  From Michelle Malkin:

If they were illegal alien activists, they’d get front-page coverage, multimedia packages, and prime time on TV airwaves.

If they were anti-war activists, they’d get front-page coverage, multimedia packages, and prime time on TV airwaves.

They are pro-life activists who marched today to mark the 35th anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

You’ll be lucky to see photos like the one above buried somewhere in the back of your newspaper.

I don’t care what your view of abortion is, but you can’t deny that the double standard is quite obvious.

Nope…no liberal media bias!

Debunking the “tax cuts for the rich” myth once and for all

Economic ignorance offends me greatly, whether the ignorance is willful or not.  Her Highness has been talking about how the income tax system is “out of whack” and benefits the rich.  How quaint, coming from the woman who donated her hubby’s used underwear (God knows what kinds of stains were in those things!) to charity just to reduce her tax burden by a couple of bucks!

Anywho, the woman may not let facts get in the way of her Marxist claptrap, but here they are anyway (courtesy of Neal Boortz).

Despite what Hillary may want you to believe … and what most voters will believe to be true … a recent report shows that the tax burden on the wealthy has increased more than their incomes. The National Center for Policy Analysis says that Bush tax cuts actually made the tax code more progressive. It concludes that every major tax change over the past two decades has increased the share of taxes paid by the wealthiest Americans (AKA the evil rich).

Michael D. Stroup, a Stephen F. Austin University economist who authored the NCPA report says, “It is politically popular to say that tax cuts benefit the wealthy … The accusation does not match the reality.”

Now if you are a regular reader of Nealz Nuze, you’ve read statistics similar to these already. But how about a little refresher, just for the sake of angering Hillary Clinton.

  • The top 1 percent of income earners pay more than one in every three dollars the IRS collects in taxes. From 1986 to 2004, the total share of the income tax burden paid by the top 1 percent of earners grew from 25.8 percent to 36.9 percent, while the total share of the tax burden paid by the bottom half of earners fell from 6.5 percent to only 3.3 percent.
     
  • During the same period, the percentage of income the top 1 percent of tax filers paid in federal income taxes rose from 18.3 percent to 19.6 percent. By contrast, the percentage of income the bottom fifth of tax filers paid in federal income taxes dropped from 0.4 percent to zero.
     
  • The income share of the top 1 percent rose 7.7 percentage points, from 11.3 percent to 19 percent, while their income tax burden rose even more, by 11 percentage points, from 26 percent to 37 percent.

If you bring the figures forward from 2004 you’ll find that the total income share of the top 1% has fallen somewhat, while the percentage of taxes they pay has risen.

Hillary knows the truth here. She also knows two other things: (1) About 99% of Americans have no awareness at all of these figures; and (2) The leftist media isn’t about to rat her out on this. So she continues to lie, and it continues to work.

There.  That dead horse is officially beaten.
