Scozzafava is a Loyal Republican

I applaud and support Diedre Scozzafava’s decision to withdraw as a candidate in the special election in New York’s 23rd district.

Scozzafava was the Republican Party candidate. However, an insurgent campaign by Doug Hoffman (Conservative Party), and her own grave mistakes, lead to a collapse in her support and gave home to the Democratic challenger.

Especially in these times, when Obama is socializing our economy and destroying the free market system, it is important for Repulicans to hang together. Republicans must uphold the party line and the principles of democratic centralism. Republicans should stand firm against obama’s political maneuvers. Our country needs and deserve it.

However, Scozzafava’s serious mistakes made it impossible for her to survive as a credible Republican candidate. Her character would not allow this to happen. Instead, Scozzafava put her principles above herself.

Scozzafava stood up for the Party. She stood up against Obama. She did the right thing.

Thank you, Diedre Scozzafava, for helping us maintain a United Front against the socialist who is our President.

Thank you for withdrawing from the mistakes.

Your mistakes are correctible. Life is about learning from mistakes. However, your character will be with you for the rest of our career — and your character is strong.

Thank you.

The Goldman Sachs Presidency

As Goldman Sachs CEOs go on to things like being Senator and Treasury Secretary, it’s good that Obama is already giving the guy White House tours

John Podesta, the president of the liberal think tank Center for American Progress and the head of Mr. Obama’s transition, visited 17 times. He met the president twice and Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel four times.

Business leaders had their share of visits as well, but not as numerous. James Dimon, chief executive of J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., was listed as visiting six times, meeting the president and National Economic Council Director Lawrence Summers twice. Jeff Immelt, chief executive of General Electric Co., had five meetings, but none of those were with the president, according to the records.

Lloyd Blankfein, chief executive of Goldman Sachs, met twice with the president and once with Mr. Summers. Kenneth Lewis, the former head of Bank of America Corp., visited twice, meeting the president and Mr. Summers.

Economically, the White House exists to prevent Goldman Sachs from ever losing money. It would be unfair to Goldman Sachs shareholders if they lose money, like investors in hick companies which live and die according to market forces.

When they all look like

The only thing worst that a hateful plagiarist is a stupid hateful plagiarist who libels the dead.


When Anita Dunn claimed she stole her compliment of Mao Zedong from Lee Atwater… she meant that Lee Atwater talked about Sun Tzu.

The difference, of course, is that one is a murderous 20th century warlord… and the other is an ancient military strategist.

Anita Dunn may not be the worst official around Barack Obama.


But she still should resign.

Anita Dunn, step down.

The Third GMAC Bailout

Barack Obama will bail out GMAC for a third time.

This is necessary, Barack Obama thinks. Otherwise, UAW unionists might lose their jobs.

This is necessary, Barack Obama thinks, because otherwise people with bad credit could not buy cars they could not afford.

This is necessary, Barack Obama thinks, because otherwise Ford  (which has not been bailed out) might gain market share.

This is necessary, Barack Obama thinks, because otherwise people might buy foreign cars.
The third GMAC bailout combines corrupt politics, economic foolishness, socialism, and protectionism.

It is typical of the economic policies of the Obama administration.

Al Qaeda Theorist, Guest Blogger

Zenpundit points to the amazing happening of al Qaeda strategist, tactician, and theorist Abu Walid al-Masri guest blogging at at All Things Counter-Terrorism. An excerpt:

So we become ready for an intellectual dialogue with the security beauty and the terrorist fighter, Mrs Farrall, we take a tour with her in the different field of terrorism. She wants a tour so she can get a more accurate knowledge of the enemy so she can target them in a better way. I want the dialogue to clarify the truths to our Arab public and to all the people of the world if possible. The experiences of our fight in Afghanistan against the Soviets was a world experience that affected the lives of all people, but was decisive for many of them. Therefore our Arab experience in Afghanistan, concerns every person on this planet.

Unfortunately our enemies are those who exaggerate the presentation of that experience with whatever is suitable for their greed so that is why they draw our picture in a very ugly way so we look like terrorists who thirst for blood and kill innocents and so can be considered the greatest threat to humans on earth.

Read the whole thing, as well as an explanation of sorts from ATCT‘s chief blogger, Leah Farrell.

The New York Times Bailout

Well, we have already had an MSNBC Bailout, so it makes sense that a bailout for the New York Times and the rest is just around the corner.

Don’t you just love this suggestion for an Independent Journalism Tax

In order to preserve independent journalism in the age of the Internet, a national Fund for Local News should be created with money the FCC now collects from or could impose on telecom users, television and radio broadcast licensees, or Internet service providers.

The central reality of our economy is that friends of the administration are never allowed to lose money. Unlike countries with relatively free economies — China, France, and so on — in America, profit and loss have nothing to do with whether large companies stay in business: connectiosn to the White House and the Treasury Department determine what large companies stay in business.

Of course, I may be wrong. If I am wrong, then President Obama will swiftly denounce any calls to use public monies to subsidize newspapers. Shortly thereafter, he will withdraw the MSNBC Bailout, and demand that GE return not just all public monies, but all profit that GE made with your money.

Of course, I am not wrong. Obama won’t do any of those things. MSNBC continues to exist, because its parent company was bailed out. And the next question is whether the New York Times should be bailed out, too.

Journalist Ethics

When FoxNews reported on NewsCorp, the FoxNews anchor always says NewsCorp is the parent company of this network.

Likewise, when FoxNews reports on Rupert Murdoch, the anchor says, Rupert Murdoch is the CEO of NewsCorp, the parent company of this network.

So, when MSNB & NBC reporter discusses Barack Obama, when they talk about Tim Geithner, why do they not say Barack Obama is the President of the United States, a major investor in the parent company of this network?

When MSNBC & NBC report on the Pay Czar restricting the take-home pay of officials at Citi, Bank of America, and GM, why do they not say that officials at GE, which also was saved from bankruptcy by Treasury backstops, was not impacted?
