Mark Levin: The Gen. Sherman of the Conservative Rebirth

Posted by NosferatusCoffin | March 28th, 2009

Order Liberty and Tyranny from Amazon

Here it is, after 1AM on a Sunday morning (though it is still Saturday night as far as I am concerned) and after a busy week, I decide I better go and order Mark Levin’s new book, “Liberty and Tyranny” before even Amazon runs out.

Well, imagine my surprise that upon going to Amazon a few moments ago and seeing that the book will not be available even on Amazon until April 4 and my copy will not be delivered here until April 10. Not to mention it is still the #1 selling book of any genre on Amazon after several days. Heck, it was #1 for non-fiction books even before it officially came out.

And of course, the turnout for the two book signings he has done in the past week have been nothing short of amazing.

As reported on PajamasMedia.com

I MENTIONED THE HUGE CROWD AT MARK LEVIN’S BOOK-SIGNING, but reader Dan Byers sends this video. That’s a truly amazing line. He writes: “My wife and I just got back from Levin’s book signing in Tysons Corner. The line was unbelievable. As much as we love Mark, we decided not to stand out in the cold rain for five hours. But thousands of others seemed happy to do so-here is a quick video I took that shows the size of the line-the passion and size of his following sure make it easy to understand why the Left wants to reinstate the Fairness Doctrine (or ‘Localism,’ it’s kinder-sounding twin).” And why they’ll have a lot of angry people to deal with if they try. . . . The book’s still #1 on Amazon.

Mr. Beyer’s video speaks for itself: (Hat Tip: TexnDoc from NewsBusters)

Yes, there is a revolution brewing right before our eyes. The Obamedia can close their eyes and pretend it does not exist, the Dem Mafia in Congress and the White House can try to come up with cute names and policies to try to shut it down, but Americans will not be denied. Just as Sherman marched through Georgia and left little standing in it’s wake, the same can be done politically to the Leftist Overlords who now illegally hold sway over this country. And when I say illegally, I mean that they are breaking their oath to the Constitution each and every day, with each and every anti-Constitutional policy and law they debate and then have rubber-stamped by Obama. That is, when he is not filling brackets, eating steak with an unpronounceable name or sitting in front of computer pretending he is an emcee at a political version of “The Dating Game”.

Their behavior and insane way of governing this country into a financial grave is the line of political TNT that leads to their fall from power. Mark Levin’s book is the match to set it off.

Thank you, Mark. For your gift to this country which may go down as the Atlas Shrugged or even the Federalist papers of this era and generation in importance.

You truly are the Great One.

Obama’s Family: A Jerry Springer Show Waiting to Happen

Posted by NosferatusCoffin | March 26th, 2009

Have you ever wished to be rich and famous. Or even just related to someone who is?

Well, I have to wonder what Obama’s endless parade of half-brothers, half-sisters and probably quarter-third-cousins would think about that?

From the AP:

Official: Obama’s half-brother falls ill in Kenya

KISUMU, Kenya (AP) A Kenyan health official says President Barack Obama’s older half-brother has been hospitalized with stomach pains and is being tested for cholera.

Local disease surveillance officer James Sande says that Malik Obama, a 51-year-old businessman, was taken to Siaya District Hospital in western Kenya on Tuesday evening. Sande says Obama’s condition is improving enough for him to be discharged Thursday or Friday. Results of his cholera test have not come back.

I am sure that Malik is just dying to try some of that Canadian-style health care that Obama and his Nurse Ratchet henchman want to impose here.

Meanwhile America’s Aunt, Zeituni Onyango will be back in court on April 1 to have her asylum case heard yet again. This is at least her third try on this count.

From the Boston Globe via Michelle Malkin:

President Barack Obama’s aunt, a Kenyan immigrant who ignited controversy last year for living in the United States illegally, has returned to her quiet apartment in a Boston public housing project to prepare for an April 1 deportation hearing that will be closed to the public…

…”The case is unusual in American history because it’s a relative of the president involved in immigration matters,” said Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Washington-based Center for Immigration Studies. “It really does present the White House with an opportunity or a minefield. If they follow through on a decision that she should go home, that would actually raise the president’s credibility enormously on immigration enforcement.”

Obama has said that he has not had any involvement in the case and that it should run its ordinary course, White House spokesman Ben LaBolt said.

Onyango’s fate will play out behind closed doors before Judge Leonard Shapiro in Boston. Onyango’s lawyer, Margaret Wong of Ohio, successfully argued to reopen her case in December and have the proceedings closed to the public, according to the Executive Office for Immigration Review, which oversees immigration courts.

Onyango declined two requests for interviews in recent days, and told a reporter to stop wasting her time.

“I’m not happy,” Onyango said, bundled up in a parka against the spring chill as she went to pick up her mail.

Join the club, Auntie. A LOT of Americans are not happy with your nephew, either.

And of course, the Poster Child for the Obama family, that poor bastard George. Last we knew, he was still thumping around in his Unabomber’s Shack and making pennies on the dollar. Or in other words, what most Americans are now making on their 401(k)s, pensions and savings accounts thanks to the Democrat Mob Regime that now runs Washington.

On the other hand, I cannot help but wonder if old George received an invite to the Inauguration or at least a job application to be the Obama Puppy’s Official Pooper Scooper.

Change you can believe in…


Notre Dame Petition Says NO to Obama Speaking at Commencement

Posted by NosferatusCoffin | March 24th, 2009

With Obama’s polls falling like Michael Moore’s blood sugar after a 15-second break from a crate of Twinkies, the Tea Party Revolution continuing to gain strength and with the inevitable embarrassment he will give himself by opening his mouth at his Castro speech/press conference tonight comes yet another piece of news that should make Obama consider switching to unfiltered.

A whopping 80,000 people have signed a petition that asks the University of Notre Dame to refuse to have Obama speak at their May 17 commencement. (Hat tip: Michelle Malkin) Or about 80,000 more than were knocking on doors this past weekend.

Partial text of the petition. Read the whole thing at NotreDameScandal.com

Dear Father Jenkins:

It has come to our attention that the University of Notre Dame will honor President Barack Obama as its commencement speaker on May 17.

It is an outrage and a scandal that “Our Lady’s University,” one of the premier Catholic universities in the United States, would bestow such an honor on President Obama given his clear support for policies and laws that directly contradict fundamental Catholic teachings on life and marriage.

This nation has many thousands of accomplished leaders in the Catholic Church, in business, in law, in education, in politics, in medicine, in social services, and in many other fields who would be far more appropriate choices to receive such an honor from the University of Notre Dame.

Instead Notre Dame has chosen prestige over principles, popularity over morality. Whatever may be President Obama’s admirable qualities, this honor comes on the heels of some of the most anti-life actions of any American president, including expanding federal funding for abortions and inviting taxpayer-funded research on stem cells from human embryos.

Somehow, I do not think that US magazine or any other Obama Cult-Suckers will be reporting on this.

By the way, where is that puppy? Is Clinton holding it hostage?

Archie Bunker’s Words Still Hold True Today

Posted by NosferatusCoffin | March 23rd, 2009

The more things change, the more they stay the same….

Amazing how what he says here applies even more so today. Especially when talking energy, politicians and corporations. Then again, politicians are and will always be themselves.


Palin Hits Obama on Special Olympics Remark

Posted by NosferatusCoffin | March 20th, 2009

Showing that she is not adverse to entering into controversy, after refusing one-third of her state’s share of the “stimulus” money, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has now spoken on out Obama’s tasteless remarks about Special Olympians during his appearance on The Jay Leno Show.

Sort of reminds you of the “lipstick on a pig” gaffe that Obama blurted out last year during the campaign, if you will. Then again, President “57 States” has become an Old Faithful Gaffe Machine all on his own. And it certainly does not help that he picked the Typhoid Mary of Foot-in-Mouth-Disease in Sen. Joe “Plugs” Biden, aka The Stupidest Man in the Senate to be Veep.

From the NRO:

Palin Hits Obama on ‘Special Olympics’ Joke

Gov. Sarah Palin responded to remarks made last night by President Obama related to the Special Olympics on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”:

“I was shocked to learn of the comment made by President Obama about Special Olympics,” Governor Palin said. “This was a degrading remark about our world’s most precious and unique people, coming from the most powerful position in the world.

“These athletes overcome more challenges, discrimination and adversity than most of us ever will. By the way, these athletes can outperform many of us and we should be proud of them. I hope President Obama’s comments do not reflect how he truly feels about the special needs community.”

Well, after the way his allies went after her, he really couldn’t count on a full-throated defense of a boneheaded comment. Obama used the whole “it’s just a joke” excuse with his “lipstick on a pig” comment, too.

Needless to say, it is good to see Sarahcuda back both in the spotlight and also back to nipping at the heels of the Detestable Dems. When 2012 rolls around, hopefully she will be taking “Jaws” sized bites of out of the Obama MisAdministration and leaving only chum in the waters.

Obama Policy: Free the Terrorists, Disarm Airline Pilots

Posted by NosferatusCoffin | March 18th, 2009

First there was the first foreign interview with al-Jazeera. Then the no pre-conditions diplomatic sally towards Iran. The backhanding of Israel while doling out $1 billion to Hamas. And then sending Hillary on bended knee to every Arab despotic and terrorist regime on her first foreign tour. Quite the first impression, would you not say?

And now, as if even the most blind OburkhaBot needed any more convincing that the Obama administration is totally and completely beholden and indebted to IslamoTerrorists on all fronts, (especially from illegal campaign funding) comes this predictable, but regrettable piece of news.

From Newsmax.com:

Obama Wants to Disarm U.S. Pilots

Wednesday, March 18, 2009 12:19 PM

By: David A. Patten

The Obama administration is taking steps quietly to shut down the program that qualifies commercial airline pilots to carry firearms in jetliner cockpits in order to ward off another 9/11-type attack.

The administration recently diverted $2 million from a program to train and certify pilots to carry firearms safely while on duty. Instead, it is using the money to hire additional field inspectors to help discipline pilots who step out of line, according to a report in Tuesday’s Washington Times.

A Times editorial condemned the Obama administration’s action, calling it “completely unnecessary harassment of the pilots.”

Since Obama took office, the approval process for certifying pilots to carry firearms has ground to a halt, the newspaper reports. Pilots are afraid to speak out about the behind-the-scenes maneuverings, for fear of retaliation, according to the newspaper. No cases have been reported in which pilots have brandished a weapon inappropriately or otherwise abused their eligibility to carry firearms.

So, let us disarm our nation’s airline pilots, 70% who are ex-military and therefore already qualified and trained to carry a firearm in most cases. While at the same time make sure that those Gitmo terrorists who have not returned to the battlefield (and who get free health care at the U.S. taxpayer’s expense) are freed ASAP. Though, God only knows where they will end up.

Osama, ImInAJihad and Assad could not written a better script if they wanted to. It is now all too obvious that Obama and his fellow travelers are the terrorist’s personal blow-up doll. And this disarming is just one more overt step in that direction.


AIG Hearings: A show trial that would make Stalin smile – Update: Frank is not impressed with death threats against AIG employees

Posted by NosferatusCoffin | March 18th, 2009

Well, it has been a few weeks since the Socialist Politburo (aka the Democrat party) had their last kangaroo court in session and with the mock “outrage” over the bonuses paid out to certain AIG employees, that means it must be time for another episode of:

STALINIST SHOW TRIAL…

And your host, Rep. Barney AIDS, (Homosexual Pimp & Racketeer – MA)

Michelle Malkin has been liveblogging this sham. Here are a few highlights.

11:41am. First q: Why not return the bonuses earlier?

Liddy: We “blindly follow[ed] legal advice.”

Q: Why wasn’t committee informed of retention bonus return plan? Why not make payments on Saturday night?

Liddy: No intent to deceive. We had been discussing this with Hill staff.

Q: But not my staff?…and not Treasury Secy.

Liddy: No. Not with Treasury. Only Federal Reserve.

Q: Are you aware of TARP funds about to run out?

Liddy: Well aware.

Liddy: I talked to Treas. Secy last week and he said the first he’d heard about [bonus issue] was a week ago.

12:00pm Eastern. Frank demands names of execs who didn’t return bonuses. Will subpoena them. Liddy wants confidentiality. Frank refuses.

Liddy reads death threats against execs and their families. Frank flippantly says everyone gets those threats.

The execs are NOT public figures.

Frank dismisses threats as not specific.

So, all of these AIG employees should have their names, addresses etc be leaked nationally and then have the DNC Media Joe-the-Plumber them. In other words, a media napalm enema. God, I hate these Marxist bastards. 2010 cannot come soon enough.

And speaking of that, if the RNC was really worth a damn, they would start a national House and Senate campaign, ala the Contract With America. Maybe name it 100 For the GOP, since the GOP has the chance to completely destroy the Dem majority in both houses, if they really put their mind to it.

Instead, of course, we have a bumbling fool who is more worried about Rush Limbaugh, political cartoons and affixing his lips to the donkey’s ass than about actually doing his job.

At least Code Pink got bashed a bit. Though it was more for show than anything else. Also, can anyone tell me what nursing home the Dems keep raiding, ala ICE to get these dried-up old Marxist prunes from?

And a little later:

12:19pm Eastern. Liddy: “There was great angst over bonuses during meetings with NY Federal Reserve.”

Ackerman: Will you cooperate with Cuomo’s subpoena of names of execs who didn’t return bonuses?

Liddy: We’ll do the right thing. Our intent is to comply with the subpoena.

Q: The NY Federal Reserve should be called to account. Congressman pushing receivership idea. Wants chart of future compensation plans. Wants all docs given to NYFed Reserve.

12:40pm Eastern. Democrat Rep. Capuano says he’s not against bonuses, just against bonuses for people who created the problem.

Well then, I’m sure he will return his automatic pay increases this year!

Indeed, and they also return all of those extra paper clips, postage stamps and girlie mag …errr Time/Newsweek subscriptions that litter their offices.

UPDATE:

From TheHill.com: (via Michelle Malkin)

House Financial Service Committee Chairman Barney Frank (D-Mass.) wants the names of AIG employees who refuse to return at least some of their bonuses, and lawmakers appear split on the request.

“I’m now asking you to send us the names of people receiving the bonuses who are not paying them back,” Frank told AIG Chairman and CEO Edward Liddy during a Wednesday hearing.

Frank said if he did not receive the names he would move to ask his committee to vote to subpoena the names.

Liddy said that he “very much” wants to comply with Frank’s request, but said he feared for the employees’ safety.

“I would hope it doesn’t take a subpoena,” he said. “I’m just really concerned about the safety of our people.”

Liddy read from one threat: “‘All of the people should be executed with piano wire around their neck,’” he said.

Some Senate Republicans sympathized with Liddy’s concerns about potentially exposing the executives to public harm.

“My gut reaction is that there’s so much rage, I don’t want any violence taking place,” said Sen. Sam Brownback (R-Kan.). “I’ve got to be a little tempered in my response. But I do think they should either return the money or be fired.”

Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), a member of the Senate Banking Committee, said public anger should be focused instead on the Treasury Department, which knew about the bonuses. “The administration could have easily dealt with this,” Corker said.

No sh*t, Sherlock. This is the biggest and most ridiculous setup and “outrage” since the Duke Lacrosse case. We should use some of that “stimulus” to build a 535-room federal prison on Christmas Island and have the DOJ conduct an ICE-like raid…now THAT would be money well spent.
