Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Suicide bombing in Russia, MSM not jumping to conclusions

Updates here.

Must have been due to the overheated political rhetoric from the Moscow Tea Party.  Or Sarah Palinsky.  Or something.

Look, I’m not gonna do the same thing I blasted the MSM for doing when it came to the AZ shootings by jumping to conclusions.  Waiting until all of the facts come in is obviously the most sensible thing to do.

That said, notice the restraint the MSM is showing by not implying who may have been behind the suicide bombing in Moscow?  I have to wonder: where in the h3ll was this restraint when it came to the AZ shooting?

Nope…no liberal media bias!

Putin mad that we busted his spies

What seems to be the problem, Pooty-Poot?  This?

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin on Tuesday criticized U.S. law enforcement, even as his government acknowledged that its citizens were among the 11 people that U.S. authorities charged were part of a long-running spy operation.

So he’s mad that we caught his spies inside our country?  Hmmm.  Funny, that.

Putin plays game of “chicken” with Obama. Predictably, Obama surrenders.

I seem to recall the gaffetastic VP warning telling us roughly a year ago that B.O. would be tested by the world, the implication being that The One would be perceived as a weakling.  Biden assured us that the world would find out just how “steel”like B.O.’s resolve would be, and that he wouldn’t be pushed around.

If, by “steel”like, Biden meant “He would surrender quicker than a French soldier staring down the barrel of a water pistol”, then he was right.  Details:

President Barack Obama has decided to scrap plans for a U.S. missile defense shield in the Czech Republic and Poland that had deeply angered Russia, the Czech prime minister confirmed Thursday.

NATO’s new chief hailed the move as “a positive step” and a Russian analyst said the move will increase the chances that Russia will cooperate more closely with the United States in the dispute over Iran’s nuclear program.

Premier Jan Fischer told reporters that Obama phoned him overnight to say that “his government is pulling out of plans to build a missile defense radar on Czech territory.”

“The same happened with Poland. Poland was informed in the same way about this intention,” Fischer said.

Nile Gardiner sees this exactly right:

This is bad news for all who care about the US commitment to the transatlantic alliance and the defence of Europe as well as the United States. It represents the appalling appeasement of Russian aggression and a willingness to sacrifice American allies on the altar of political expediency. A deal with the Russians to cancel missile defence installations sends a clear message that even Washington can be intimidated by the Russian bear.

What signal does this send to Ukraine, Georgia and a host of other former Soviet satellites who look to America and NATO for protection from their powerful neighbour? The impending cancellation of Third Site is a shameful abandonment of America’s friends in eastern and central Europe, and a slap in the face for those who actually believed a key agreement with Washington was worth the paper it was written on.

Well played, Barry.  Pooty-Poot throws a hissy fit, and you steal the rattle away from one baby to give it to him.  Now that, my friends, is leadership.

Feeling safe and secure with that Hopenchange yet?

Weekend roundup

Obama says that just because his SCOTUS nominee is a race-obsessed leftist ideologue doesn’t mean she’s unqualified to sit on the bench, and that she should not be filibustered.  The same dude that tried to filibuster a far more qualified jurist in Sam Alito is saying that there shouldn’t be a filibuster?  Alrighty, then.

By the way, since the MSM is telling us that Sotomayor’s compelling story (born poor, raised poor, life as a minority, overcomes all to be a federal judge) is reason enough for America to love her and to put her on the court, I do have to ask: where was the MSM when this same story manifested itself in Clarence Thomas and Miguel Estrada?  Nope…no liberal media bias!

Some wingnut psycho murdered an abortion doctor in Kansas.  Predictably, the MSM chooses to make this nutjob the face of principled anti-infanticide folks like me.  I don’t know how many different ways we can cite “Thou shalt not murder” to show where we stand on murder, both babies and abortion doctors.  If this nutbar were a true Christian (who wasn’t deranged, that is), he would be aware of both the aforementioned commandment, as well as Romans 12:19: “Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, “VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY,” says the Lord.”

B.O. offers his “personal commitment” to Muslims.  Yeah, I bet.

As we leave May and head into June, New York gets a big dose of global “warming”, AKA a freeze watch.

For once, I agree with the Russkies, and they would know first hand about this: “American capitalism gone with a whimper.”  The column is excellent, however critical (though largely accurate) it may be of American society.

Obama: The Russians invading Georgia is because the US is an aggressive bully

Heck, the Russkies are just learning from usso sayeth the Obamessiah:

Democrat Barack Obama scolded Russia again on Wednesday for invading another country’s sovereign territory while adding a new twist: the United States, he said, should set a better example on that front, too.

The Illinois senator’s opposition to the Iraq war, which his comment clearly referenced, is well known. But this was the first time the Democratic presidential candidate has made a comparison between the U.S. invasion of Iraq and Russia’s recent military activity in Georgia.

“We’ve got to send a clear message to Russia and unify our allies,” Obama told a crowd of supporters in Virginia. “They can’t charge into other countries. Of course it helps if we are leading by example on that point.”

Before Chris Matthews pops a woody over that line, how’s about we read Allah’s retort?

Here’s a newsflash, champ: Russia’s foreign minister did indeed invoke a case of U.S. military action in his Journal op-ed the other day, but it wasn’t Bush and the Middle East that he had in mind. I don’t begrudge the guy his leftist cant, but at least put some meat on the bone. How, precisely, would Russian actions have been different if we hadn’t invaded Iraq? Georgia and Ossetia have been fighting since Obama was in his 20s. Are we playing another game of Time Machine here, in which the war somehow becomes a justification even for misfortunes that preceded it?

“Hope” and “change” and “judgment” and stuff.

Moscow or moonbats?

Same diff, if you read this crap from the UK Times:

Russians were told over breakfast yesterday what really happened in Georgia: the conflict in South Ossetia was part of a plot by Dick Cheney, the Vice-President, to stop Barack Obama being elected president of the United States.

“George Bush’s Administration is promoting interests of candidate John McCain,” said Dr. Markov. “Defeated by Barak Obama on all fronts, McCain has one last card to play yet – the creation of a virtual Cold War with Russia . . . Bush himself did not want a war in South Ossetia but his Republican Party did not leave him any choice.” The Americans were now engineering an armed conflict between Ukraine and Russia, Dr Markov added. … 

I thought at first it was satire.  Then, I had a Vincent Gambini moment (from My Cousin Vinny): “You were serious about dat?”  Such paranoid conspiracy theories tend to originate in the moonbatosphere, but obviously the Russkies are drinking from the same Kool-Aid pitcher.
