Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Another Solyndra creditor? The California Democrat Party!

I’m sure this is a big coinkidink:

Out of the hundreds of out-of-work employees, vendors, investors and other creditors in the bankruptcy of government-backed solar-panel maker Solyndra LLC, one name stands out: the California Democratic Party.

Why California Democrats would be creditor to a company that received more than a half-billion dollars in federal loans to build a solar-panel plant isn’t clear. Even party officials say they’re not sure.

The California Democratic Party’s communications director, Tenoch Flores, said the organization was not owed “any funds in any form” by the California-based company. He said he was unclear why the party would be listed as a creditor in Solyndra’s bankruptcy filing.

Additionally:

Under a policy first issued by the White House in 2009, federal agencies were required to disclose lobbying for stimulus funds. McBee Strategic Consulting, a lobby firm then under contract with Solyndra, said it had contacted the Energy Department in the first and third quarters of 2009 regarding the Recovery Act, according to records filed under the Lobbying Disclosure Act (LDA).

Yet a review by The Hill of the more than 40 lobbyist contact disclosure forms regarding the stimulus posted online by the Energy Department reveals no contact between the department and Solyndra’s lobbyists.

The only capitalism that the Economic Illiterate in Chief and his party’s mouth-breathing retards understand is crony capitalism.  And he’s not any good at that, either.

Once again, Chicagoland thugonomics on full display.

Texas adds finality to World Court saga

Recall the story of how the UN’s World Court tried to usurp American sovereignty and stop the execution of criminal alien Jose Medellin, despite the obvious fact that the World Court has no jurisdiction whatsoever.  Well, TX just gave a Texas-sized “kiss my rump!” to the Court by executing Medellin’s worthless hide yesterday.  Details:

Texas has executed Mexican-born condemned prisoner Jose Medellin for the rape and murder of two teenage girls 15 years ago.

The state carried out the execution late Tuesday night after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected his request for a reprieve in a split vote.

The 33-year-old Medellin had claimed he was denied treaty-guaranteed help from the Mexican consulate when he was arrested.

Texas authorities say he never invoked his consular rights until four years after he was arrested. By then, he had been convicted and condemned for participating in the attack on 16-year-old Elizabeth Pena and 14-year-old Jennifer Ertman.

Memo to the UN: Don’t mess with Texas.

Obama’s new target audience: convicted death row killers

Barry O must be proud.  From Mississippi:

The youngest inmate executed in Mississippi in two decades urged death penalty opponents to vote for presidential candidate Barack Obama in order to end executions and apologized to the family of the victim in his final moments.

Dale Leo Bishop, 34, was put to death by lethal injection Wednesday for his role in the 1998 claw hammer bludgeoning of a friend.

Congrats to the Obamessiah for this most coveted endorsement.

NJ bans death penalty, spares Megan’s killer

New Jersey just recently banned capital punishment and commuted the sentences of all death row inmates to life in prison.  In and of itself, that doesn’t bother me.  After all, the 10th Amendment says that states are free to set their laws as they so choose, provided the laws are not unconstitutional.

However, this part does bother me:

The man who raped and killed 7-year-old Megan Kanka — the 1994 crime that inspired “Megan’s Law” — is one of eight men whose sentences were commuted to life in prison this week as part of New Jersey’s new ban on execution.

The Garden State on Monday became the first state in more than three decades to abolish the death penalty after a commission ruled the punishment is “inconsistent with evolving standards of decency.”

Gov. Jon Corzine the day before commuted the sentences of eight men sitting on the state’s death row. They will now serve life in prison without parole, according to the governor’s office.

Among the eight is Jesse Timmendequas, 46, who was sentenced to death in June 1997 for Megan’s murder.

Prosecutors said Timmendequas lured Megan to his home by saying he wanted to show her a puppy. He then raped her, beat her and strangled her with a belt. A day later, he led police to her body.

“Megan’s Law,” introduced after her death, requires that authorities notify neighbors when a sex offender moves into an area. Timmendequas had twice been convicted of sex crimes — on 5- and 7-year-olds — before he murdered Megan. 

The cretin who is responsible for the creation of Megan’s Law gets to continue drawing air through his piehole, despite having been sentenced by a jury of his peers (in a state that rarely executes anyone, just to get an idea of how heinous his crimes were).  What also bothers me is that 53% of New Jerseyans opposed abolishing the death penalty, and only 39% supported banning it (poll here).  Yet the liberal politicians knew the fallout of ignoring their constituents would be minimal, and so ignore them they did.

Maybe you support capital punishment, and maybe you don’t.  That’s cool, since reasonable people exist on both sides.  Most complaints that I have heard against capital punishment involve cases were the innocent are wrongly executed.  That is a completely legitmate concern, and it’s actually one that I share.  However, in the case of this scumbag Timmendequas, he confessed to everything, so there’s no doubt about his guilt.

If NJ wanted to implement a ban, my own personal opinion is that it would have been less controversial to have implemented it from this point forward, not retroactively to those who are currently condemned.
