It Is Said That The Enemy Of My Enemy Is My Friend

I now add that the enemies of my friend are a bunch of completely misguided, anti-American, Progressive/Socialists !

These clowns only wish that the drive and determination of TEA Party activists would be a fad.

Before We Go Looking For A Scott Brown Here In Illinois

Or, anywhere else, for that matter.

We all need to remember that there is a HUGE difference between a New England Republican and a Liberty-minded Freedom Loving Conservative.

Among these differences is the primary and fundamental belief in the Sanctity of Life and the knowledge that the purpose of government is to support the God-given rights of Life and Liberty for all men.

While it may appear that saying he is against Federally funded abortion he is Libertarian in his leanings, there is no way that anyone can demand that their tax dollars are not used in that manner. Taxes go into a big pot and after the graft those dollars get doled out according to the whims of the current Congress.

Those supposed Libertarian leanings are just pandering to the center left. New England style.

As far as being a Republican, keep this phrase in mind : "Brown has said the GOP shouldn’t take his vote for granted on every issue. He says he’s fiscally conservative but more moderate on social issues."

Why be a Republican, then, except for the only reason any of them are: Ballot Access !

Is Kirk Dillard The New "Dede" Scozzafava ?

The irrepressible Dana Loesch has a very good look at Kirk Dillard.

Very good reading indeed.

Has Dan Proft Been Called To Properly Explain This ?

Time to remember the "election day shenanigans" of February 24, 2009:
When Cicero Town spokesman Dan Proft claimed the security personnel were necessary, "to make sure Garcia and his hooligans don't cause any problems at the polling places."

Yeah, he sure is a bona fide "Conservative" that will make Illinois a better place.

Has Justice Been Done, Or Has It Been Disregarded To Produce The Desired Result ?

There are some that find the actions of Scott Roeder reprehensible. There are some that find his actions to be understandable while not in line with the beliefs that drove him. There are some that see it as a multiple Human Tragedy.
There are some that find his actions the expected even necessary ends given the obscenities of George Tiller's chosen profession.

I find the decision of the jury to be disheartening.

But, even more than that I find the actions of the judge to be disturbing.

I've read that the presiding judge instructed the jury to disregard the defense's contention that Mr. Roeder's actions were to protect life because his actions were to stop a lawful threat.

The judge even reminded the jury that the victim posed no imminent threat to anyone as he stood in his church.

Both are true according to Kansas Statutes. But, is the judge's decision to disallow the “necessity defense” at trial not, "clearly castrating a jury of the defendant’s peers to not allow them to hear the full defense, and the defendant’s justification (in his mind) for doing so…simply because the activity he criminally disrupted was immoral to him." There are yet to be seen consequences of disallowing a defense because "what Tiller did at his clinic Monday through Friday is lawful in Kansas."

Moreover, I have yet to read that the judge instructed the jury of their right to nullify said statutes.

Because he also instructed the jury that they could not consider lesser charges; its only choice was to convict or acquit on first-degree murder.

Every member of the jury knew, as they were reminded by the defense, "The state…has proved that Scott Roeder killed George Tiller. But only you, collectively, can determine if he murdered George Tiller"

With so much evidence that Mr. Roeder had indeed caused the death of Mr. Tiller in a pre-meditated manner, there is no doubt that the jury could not find Mr. Roeder innocent. Unless they were fully knowledgeable about their right to nullify any law.

To those who will say that is allowing Mr. Roeder to get away with murder, I reply, simply, no it is requiring the State to file charges consistent with the sensibilities of the people.

But, did the jury understand the right of nullification ? Did the judge overstep his position ?

We must wait for the appeals to be filed to understand whether or not the defense thinks that there was a grave injustice done here.

Were You Waiting For The Right Endorsement ?

With only eight days until the Republican Primary in Illinois some have still not decided who to vote for.

Well this may be all you Liberty-minded voters need to know: Lech Walesa Endorses Adam Andrzejewski

Walesa, a true hero and a real freedom fighter, brings a great deal of gravitas to the Andrzejewski campaign.

Get out and Vote Illinois.
Let's not let Massachusetts have all the fun.

A: Missed It By That Much

When The Press Chimes In The Season Gets Sillier

A simple story in The Chicago Reader on the candidates for the Illinois seat in The United States Senate once held by President 0bama turned into this:

Can this get any better ?

In Illinois, this is just warming up.

All Y'all Knew It Was Too Good To Be True

Just when we were being told it was safe to go on about our business:
Rep. Paul Ryan (R., Wis.), the ranking member of the House Budget Committee, tells National Review Online that House Democrats are planning to use the budget-reconciliation process in order to pass Obamacare. “They’re meeting with each other this weekend to pursue it,” says Ryan. “I’ve spoken with many Democrats and the message is this: They’re not ready to give up. They’ve waited their entire adult lives for this moment, and they aren’t ready to let 100,000 pesky votes in Massachusetts get in the way of fulfilling their destiny. They’ll look at every option and spend the next four or five days figuring it out.”

If that doesn't work, there is still the old-fashioned way:
A group of 25 House Democrats have begun circulating draft proposals for smaller bills that would not include an individual or employer mandate, any new entitlement programs, or a public option to compete with private insurers....

One election of one Senator is a great start, but this is a long uphill battle.

November will only get here if we continue to press our elected representatives every day until they either represent us or are replaced by those that will represent us.

Can We Now Admit That This Guy Is Politically Irrelevant To This Republic ?

Newt Gingrich thinks the Massachusetts Senate race results are:
a renunciation of go-it-alone by either party, and thinks Republicans would be "clever" to pass a series of relatively non-controversial measures with "huge bipartisan majorities."
Because the Republicans have any say at all about what legislation is even addressed.

He was so right in backing Dede Scozzafava.
What a disgrace.

Newt in 2012. HaHaHaHa

The Silly Season

Otherwise known as Democratic Primary Season in Illinois.

Dem. candidate for Governor ("Hot Rod" Blagojevich old seat) Dan Hynes has brought back the once revered former Mare of Chicago. For those unfamiliar, this guy:

in an ad reminding us that his opponent, current Governor Pat "Loose Cannon" Quinn is unfit to serve. As if we haven't all been paying attention to him.

The Democrats seem to be getting their campaign ideas from the prosecutors in the Peterson case.
Dig up a body and have it point fingers at the guy you want "dead".

How interesting will things be here in IL, where there is only one real party - The Illinois Combine. Until the Chumbolones wake up.

Maybe some of that NJ, VA, MA magic will come our way.

Could happen.

To keep up with all the shenanigans I recommend the Great John Kass

We Now Know What It Takes For Progressives To Admit That There Is A Constitution

Sen. Schumer (D-NY) has pitched a fit following The United States Supreme Court finding a part of McCain-Feingold unConstitutional.

In a 5-4 decision SCOTUS found that union and corporate paid issue ads cannot be banned in the closing days of campaigns.

"They also overturned two earlier decisions and threw out parts of a 63-year-old law that said companies and unions can be prohibited from using money from their general treasuries to produce and run their own campaign ads urging the election or defeat of particular candidates by name"

So, old Chuck has decided that A): There should be hearings on this "un-American decision" and B): "we need to consider a Constitutional amendment"

What a guy !
He has come to believe that there actually is a Constitution (a real one, not the fake "living" one), and that now it needs to be Amended - almost Founder-like, WOW
He has come to realize that The Supreme Court is not the final arbiter of all things Constitutional - which up until now was the left's second sacrament, second only to abortion, but I digress.

Just as soon as Chuckie goes and flips his lid along come 0bama with some brilliance.
This will lead to a “stampede of special interest money in our politics.”

In his calling it a victory for Big Oil and Big Banks and Big Insurance and Big Other Things, he left out the fact that there was no crying from the left about Big Union having that freedom in the past and all this did was level the playing field.

But, the left does not do so well when the playing field is level, now do they ?

This Is One Way To Shake Things Up

For a guy that campaigned on nothing, he sure did his homework.

The good people of New Jersey have an interesting Governor.

For Those Who Cannot Bring Themselves To Believe In Such Dishonesty

Genius Andrew Breitbart's Big Government brings us this gem, complete with the woman giving us her name as she violates the sanctity of the election (not to mention election laws).

New Math in old Mass.

Sometimes one and one are more than 3 million

It all comes together when you just look at it.

The Democ-rats/Liberals/"Progressives" put out their information packs on what to do before they set out to do it.

How To Elect A Candidate That Hasn't Been Deemed "The Only One That Can Win"

Vote for that candidate.

Pretty simple stuff, but it eludes the smartest of them.

There are some bloggers that go on at great length about how any Republican is better than a Democrat all the while completely missing the obvious: The lesser of evils is still evil.

But, it is especially harmful when that blogger pretends to be a "Libertarian-Republican" while spouting such stupidity.

Maybe at first glance it seems as if any Republican is better than a Democrat but a simple thinking through of that idea will quickly put it to shame.

By putting any Republican on the ticket we got 2006 and 2008. How is that working so far ?
Do you really believe that if we had succumbed to the horror of putting candidates with true Republic minded principles on the ballots in 2006 and 2008 things would be worse ?

"Libertarian-Republicans" like this have been seated squarely upon their shoulders for too long to be of any use to Liberty-minded Republican-principled voters to pay any further mind.

Will the Giant Corporations use Government to Crush the Competition

Let's watch and see if little YMAX Corp. will be squashed by regulations into submission.
All of the biggies tried to come up with this type of system, but it cost to much for them to put into use.
Now here comes the MagicJack guys with a system that is cheap and works.

How long before "regulatory capture" ends this capitalist venture ?

Co-National Champions

The University of Alabama Crimson Tide have beaten The University of Texas Longhorns in the very much strained and contrived BCS "National Championship Game"

It took a fumble recovery in the last minutes for 'Bama to beat a freshman QB led Texas side. If the freshman QB had just 30 minutes more of playing time this season, by my reckoning, 'Bama would have been beaten soundly.

In another game between unbeatens, the Texas Christian University Horned Frogs and the Boise State University Broncos were able to counter their opponents offenses evenly and consistently throughout the whole game, with only a fake punt being able to put the Broncos over the top.

Remember the old adage "Defense wins Championships" ?

The Lights of Albuquerque shine on the evidence that Boise State University and The University of Alabama ought to be co-National Champions.

If only Congress would get on this issue of great National importance.
I am kidding.

Maybe This Will Pass the Test of the Constitution That She Swore an Oath to "Preserve and Protect"

In the great State of Louisiana a petition to recall Sen. Landrieu has been accepted by the Secretary of State.

Two bloggers much closer to the story have it covered:
And So It Goes In Shreveport
Caught Him With A Corndog

Come on all you Freedom loving Louisianans.

Greed May Be The Deadliest Sin

Abortion as a means of birth-control has always been about money.
While there have been other reasons used to rationalize the use of abortion, there will always be at it's root cause one thing - money.

How can I afford a(nother) baby ?
How can I afford a special needs baby.
Usually, as I said, intermingled with the compassion of how can I bring a(nother) baby into this world, especially a special needs baby ?

All the while, of course, calling it a mass of cells or some such way of denying the truth.

I will be alone if I do not abort it, my "man" will leave me.

This one can all by itself fill days of explaining that ain't a man. What the hell are you thinking being with a guy that would kill a baby just so he can keep his toys ? This guy will kill a baby, what the hell do you think he thinks of you ? Forget the dream of a long train on your wedding gown and the beautiful veil, this guy has and will kill all of your dreams.
See, it becomes pretty obvious that is a boy; a spoiled rotten little boy. But, truly what did you all expect to happen when the feminist (there is a great misnomer) movement pushed their emasculating agenda on the culture ?

So very compassionate to determine that your own needs trump that of anyone else, but surely they are more important than a baby's.

Now, if only all of the women that choose abortion just come to grips with the real reason.

It is several thousand dollars less expensive to abort than to raise a child.
At what price ?
Future episodes of depression and an increase in the chances of contracting breast cancer. Leaving out the damage to your immortal soul, is it really worth it ?

In fits of anger, I say let the liberal idiots kill themselves off.

Then I am overwhelmed with feelings of shame and guilt and repent of such hateful thoughts, because they are not killing themselves off. They are killing others at the altar of their own making.

Liberal compassion is killing the weakest so that they have more for themselves.

That is the essence of abortion.

Greed in a manner only Satan can smile at.

Passive-Aggressive Behavior meets Superiority Complex

I couldn't help but wonder if this is an example of Passive-Aggressive behavior.
President pantywaist has been coddled, massaged, manhandled and manipulated his whole life, and now he is trying to get back at his controllers.
He has to show 'em all who is boss. Kind of.
That he is more than willing to submit his country to the humiliation that true subjugation is in his efforts to escape his own feelings of subjugation only points out an even more troubling behavior.
This goes beyond Narcissism. This eclipses Superiority Complexes like a well-timed calling on the sun to be darkened by a time-traveler in a bad Sci-Fi movie.
This has got to be a new Disorder not yet seen by modern psychology.
To put the First Sasquatch in her place, along with countless others perhaps, he is prepared to put the US under Sharia law. That'll get her to shut up, and cover up those hideous "fashions", too.
Why else would 0bama be willing to put some of the worst of our current Gitmo residents into the hotbed of terror-training that Yemen has become ?
Why else would he so embolden Al Qaeda ?
This is Passive-Aggressive on Viagra.

A Happy New Year To All

The Lights of Albuquerque are shining brightly, there has been a Pundit & Pundette-alanche.

Thank you all for stopping by and viewing my infrequent rants.

Thank You Pundit & Pundette for being so brilliant that folks couldn't help but come here for a compare and contrast.
