My Brother's Keepers: Homophobic Misogynist Commie Goons On Parade
In which the fleebagger supporters reveal the intolerance, anger and violence that are the left's stock in trade:
"Bad Jew! Bad Jew!"
Civility. Anyway, she had it coming:
“They’ve been comparing themselves to the Egyptians ousting Mubarak. Looks like they’re not too far off, given that they share the tendency to assault women with cameras.”
Jim Treacher on the f'n CWA goon who assaulted Tabitha Hale:
This violent creep is with the Communications Workers of America, one of the groups that protested in front of FreedomWorks today, where Tabitha works.
“Get a little bloody.” “Take ‘em down.” Assault a young woman who’s doing nothing but videotaping you. All part of the New Tone.
I know Tabitha. She’s one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. I’m sick of this crap. We get months of “Teabaggers are violent” — hell, years — when in reality, Tea Partiers have been the recipients of violence. Meanwhile, these union guys are ratcheting up the violent rhetoric and now actually assaulting people in broad daylight. Come on, somebody defend this violent jackass. I dare you.

Unionized Against You
With Wisconsin unions contemplating a general strike and the new Civility Institute taking a hit from Democrats calling for blood on the streets, Steven Crowder lays out the nature and methods of today's public sector unions in this brief but pointed video, "Union Superpower."
Meanwhile, this sounds good to me:

Allen West Brings It
Islamist liars don't stand a chance debating Congressman Allen West, as this SharkTank video demonstrates:
At a townhall meeting hosted by Congressman Allen West on Monday evening in Pompano Beach, the Q&A segment of the meeting featured a Koran wielding Nezar Hamze, Executive Director of the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Hamze confronted Congressman West and asked him to point out where in the Koran does it give marching orders to Muslims “to carry out attacks against Americans and innocent people”. West quickly pointed out that the Koran was written long before America even existed and that it does indeed tell believers to kill infidels, and then proceeded to chronicle a lengthy list of historical Muslim acts of aggression. Congressman West closed his retort by referencing the Fort Hood shootings and 9-11 attacks, saying that his first hand experiences on the battlefield has given him insight into the tactics that Islamists use before telling Hamze not to “try to blow sunshine up my butt” with his criticism of him. West took offense to Hamze’s amateurish criticism of his stance on radical Islam and concluded by telling Mr. Hamze to “put the microphone down and go home.”Methinks Allen West is going to be a thorn in the side of CAIR and their fellow Islamist travellers for years to come.

A Wisconsin Conversion
Hear the whistle blowing in the background through the whole thing? That would be the teachers and union protestors trying to interrupt or interfere with the the Pledge of Allegiance. Not unlike many who do the same when it's recited during school. This is a full description of my experience at the protest and rally on capitol square in Madison, WI, on 2/20/2011.
I wandered to the capitol after the Polar Plunge to see what it was like for myself. My husband and I walked the square, listened to the union speakers protesting against the bill, and then went to listen to the supporters. We had never been to a political protest or rally before. It was a beautiful day, with positive people, in a supportive atmosphere. We walked by displays set up by several socialist groups, and doctors giving fraudulent notes to teachers so they can get paid with taxpayer money for protesting. I was very surprised and disturbed by this.
At the rally supporting the bill we agreed with most of what we heard, especially "Joe the Plummer" and the last young woman who spoke: they seemed to say everything we hear around our kitchen table and from friends and family in our everyday lives.
But then there was the mob that everyone had to go through to get to and from the area for the support rally. I wish I had video taped trying to leave. I had no sign, and was not an active participant - but I experienced first-hand the intimidation and hostility of either union mercenaries, or even worse, of the good people who have been getting whipped into an exhausted and desperate state by the union sponsored liberal rhetoric and atmosphere.
They stood blocking the way, leaving only a narrow two-person-wide space for thousands to funnel through. It was scary, claustrophic, and made me feel panicked. They glared, yelled, and one guy pushed me so hard I flew two feet forward. I thought my husband was going to lose it, so we stopped and just stood to the side where we were. I watched a lot of people from the rally pass in front of me experiencing the same thing. I saw middle class, working class people who looked liked my sister, my mother, my son or daughter, my neighbors... being taunted and intimidated by a mob hoping to provoke mayhem or violence. I looked for police help to secure a path or help with our exit, but I only saw them standing in isolated clusters amongst themselves, the nearest over 50 feet away from the crowd.
As a member of the union, I'm ashamed and horrified. As a public school teacher, I'm confused and disheartened to see so many people I admire support this behavior and even worse: join in pimping our children to further their political agenda. As the daughter of a police officer, I'm heartbroken to experience their callous indifference for my safety, that I can only understand as their passive support for protestors, and which makes them complicit in the intimidation.
Well that experience has led to these two independent voters, who have been fiscally conservative but socially divided on many issues, to a new understanding of how politics, unions, and the media work. I'm glad I didn't rely on the descriptions and information from others about this issue. I saw the reality for myself, and we have both decided to stay actively involved. We will not trust or rely on any media to deliver primary information or facts. It really is true: there is biased reporting and organized, liberal oppression and hostility for all other viewpoints. I'm just little nobody wife, mom, and teacher in small town Wisconsin, and I experienced it.
Please don't believe Hitler's description of the Jews, the opponents description of his enemy, or the liberal government / media reports on conservative groups or politics. Go see for yourself.

Obama's OFA Vs. Democracy in Wisconsin
The caption under the title "Workers' Rights" reads, "OFA is mobilizing to defend Wisconsin's public employees' right to organize."
Translation: Obama is mobilizing his OFA thugs to prevent Wisconsin's state government from executing its oath of office.

Speaker Boehner Reads The Riot Act
Boehner also endorsed Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker's proposed reforms to public service unions' collective bargaining rights and warned Obama to "suspend these tactics" of OFA-inspired intimidations organized against the state government - and directed from the White House.
The GOP Speaker referred specifically to an interview President Obama gave on Wednesday to Milwaukee television, in which he called the new law an "assault on unions." What's more, the Wisconsin chapter of the president's political arm within the Democratic National Committee (DNC), worked to promote rallies against the new law. Boehner called on Obama to have the DNC stand down in Wisconsin.

Barack Obama has betrayed those of us who took him to be a serious president prepared to put the good of the country before his short term political interests, but he remains the best chance we’ve had in a long time to address our real problems in a civil and constructive way.

Scientists Debunk Global Warming Alarmists In Letter To Congress
John Hinderaker has published a letter sent to Congress by 36 scientists in answer to a submission from a group of 18 climate alarmists containing "the usual hysterical and unscientific predictions of doom" we've all come to expect from those with a vested interest in maintaining the fraud of global warming. Hinderaker's concise closer:
As a public service, here is the countering letter in its entirety, with links below to the letter and the report to which it refers:
The global warming hoax survives only because most people do not take the trouble to learn the facts for themselves.
The Week That Was - Supplement
On 28 January 2011, eighteen scientists sent a letter to members of the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate urging them to "take a fresh look at climate change." Their intent, apparently, was to disparage the views of scientists who disagree with their contention that continued business-as-usual increases in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions produced from the burning of coal, gas, and oil will lead to a host of cataclysmic climate-related problems.
We, the undersigned, totally disagree with them and would like to take this opportunity to briefly state our side of the story.
The eighteen climate alarmists (as we refer to them, not derogatorily, but simply because they view themselves as "sounding the alarm" about so many things climatic) state that the people of the world "need to prepare for massive flooding from the extreme storms of the sort being experienced with increasing frequency," as well as the "direct health impacts from heat waves" and "climate-sensitive infectious diseases," among a number of other devastating phenomena. And they say that "no research results have produced any evidence that challenges the overall scientific understanding of what is happening to our planet's climate," which is understood to mean their view of what is happening to Earth's climate.
To these statements, however, we take great exception. It is the eighteen climate alarmists who appear to be unaware of "what is happening to our planet's climate," as well as the vast amount of research that has produced that knowledge.
For example, a lengthy review of their claims and others that climate alarmists frequently make can be found on the Web site of the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change (see http://www.co2science.org/education/reports/prudentpath/prudentpath.php). That report offers a point-by-point rebuttal of all of the claims of the "group of eighteen," citing in every case peer-reviewed scientific research on the actual effects of climate change during the past several decades.
If the "group of eighteen" pleads ignorance of this information due to its very recent posting, then we call their attention to an even larger and more comprehensive report published in 2009, Climate Change Reconsidered: The 2009 Report of the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC). That document has been posted for more than a year in its entirety at http://www.nipccreport.org/.
These are just two recent compilations of scientific research among many we could cite. Do the 678 scientific studies referenced in the CO2 Science document, or the thousands of studies cited in the NIPCC report, provide real-world evidence (as opposed to theoretical climate model predictions) for global warming-induced increases in the worldwide number and severity of floods? No. In the global number and severity of droughts? No. In the number and severity of hurricanes and other storms? No. Do they provide any real-world evidence of Earth's seas inundating coastal lowlands around the globe? No. Increased human mortality? No. Plant and animal extinctions? No. Declining vegetative productivity? No. More frequent and deadly coral bleaching? No. Marine life dissolving away in acidified oceans? No.
Quite to the contrary, in fact, these reports provide extensive empirical evidence that these things are not happening. And in many of these areas, the referenced papers report finding just the opposite response to global warming, i.e., biosphere-friendly effects of rising temperatures and rising CO2 levels.
In light of the profusion of actual observations of the workings of the real world showing little or no negative effects of the modest warming of the second half of the twentieth century, and indeed growing evidence of positive effects, we find it incomprehensible that the eighteen climate alarmists could suggest something so far removed from the truth as their claim that no research results have produced any evidence that challenges their view of what is happening to Earth's climate and weather.
But don't take our word for it. Read the two reports yourselves. And then make up your own minds about the matter. Don't be intimidated by false claims of "scientific consensus" or "overwhelming proof." These are not scientific arguments and they are simply not true.
Like the eighteen climate alarmists, we urge you to take a fresh look at climate change. We believe you will find that it is not the horrendous environmental threat they and others have made it out to be, and that they have consistently exaggerated the negative effects of global warming on the U.S. economy, national security, and public health, when such effects may well be small to negligible.

Absconding With Reagan: The Left's Dishonest Revisionism UPDATED
Jonah Goldberg exposes the phony Reagan-lovers' perfidy:
While the encomiums to Reagan & Co. are welcome, the reality is that very little has changed. As we saw in the wake of the Tucson shootings, so much of the effort to build up conservatives of the past is little more than a feint to tear down the conservatives of the present. It’s an old game. For instance, in 1980, quirky New Republic writer Henry Fairlie wrote an essay for the Washington Post in which he lamented the rise of Reagan, “the most radical activist of them all.” The title of his essay: “If Reagan Only Were Another Coolidge . . . ”
Even then, the only good conservative was a dead conservative.
And along comes Bryan Preston to further explain:
But now, pace Mitchell, here comes Eugene Robinson to say pretty much the same thing: Today’s Republicans would regard Reagan as something less than an orthodox conservative. Riiiiight.As I said here, watch for Ronald Reagan's philosophy and legacy to become the driving issues in 2012.
Here’s what’s going on. Liberals in the media have surrendered to Ronaldus Magnus. They’ve surrendered to him. They called Reagan a radical back in the day. They fretted that his election would trigger world war with the Soviets. They believed and said every bad thing about Reagan then that they say about conservatives now. And none of what they said or did mattered at all. Reagan defeated them, and his record still defeats them now.
So they’ve surrendered, and are trying to rip him out of the conservative movement’s hands.
And don't expect Andrea Mitchell to be any more honest about him then than she is now.
