Stop Listening to Limbaugh!: Obama Clearly Worried

As he talks down the economy Barack Obama is showing alarming signs of pessimism and paranoia. From The Telegraph (U.K.):

Mr Obama has told Republicans in Washington to stop listening to the right-wing talk show host Rush Limbaugh, risking a new culture war with conservative voters..... After less than a week in office, Mr Obama's presidency is already encountering the very partisan bickering he had pledged to stamp out during his first 100 days....

He... told (Republican House leaders)... to break free of the confrontational mindset epitomised by Mr Limbaugh, the highest paid talk show host in America. "You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done," Mr Obama said.... His comments followed a blunt attack on him by Mr Limbaugh, who declared on air that he hoped Mr Obama would fail as president because otherwise it will usher in socialism.

What Limbaugh actually said:

"“So yes, I would hope he would succeed if he acts like Reagan. But if he’s going to do FDR — if he’s going to do The New New Deal all over, which we will call here The Raw Deal — why would I want him to succeed? Look, he’s my president. The fact that he is historic is irrelevant to me now. It matters not at all. If he is going to implement a far-left agenda... Look, I think it’s already decided: a $2 trillion in stimulus? The growth of government? I think the intent here is to create as many dependant Americans as possible looking to government for their hope and salvation. If he gets nationalized health care, I mean, it’s over, Sean. We’re never going to roll that back. That’s the end of America as we have known it, because that’s then going to set the stage for everything being government owned, operated, or provided. Why would I want that to succeed? I don’t believe in that. I know that’s not how this country is going to be great in the future; it’s not what made this country great. So I shamelessly say, “No! I want him to fail.” If his agenda is a far-left collectivism — some people say socialism — as a conservative heartfelt, deeply, why would I want socialism to succeed? “

Said Sisters in 2003 Home Video

h/t Pam Geller at Alas Shrugs who says:

"Here's part of a home movie taken in 2003 of Amina and Sarah Said filmed by the Muslim father that murdered them in an honor killing. One big happy family -Apparently it's edited -- working on getting the original. Yaser should not be spared -- capital punishment. Islamic law will not be tolerated in America. Vote for politicians who speak to that. Vote for politicians who value women more than they pander to their Islamic paymasters."

Tax Cheat-in-Chief Guards Treasury


Senate today confirms Timothy Geithner as Secretary of the Treasury; vote was 60-34. The band played on while the MSM was silent about the absurdity of putting the fox in charge of the hen house. This is the ultimate insult to Americans who work hard and pay their taxes. Our CT senators Liberman and Dodd voted to confirm. Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine) was a prominent Republican NO vote, saying:
Throughout the state of Maine and indeed throughout the nation, millions of hard-working Americans pay their taxes on time and in full. Our taxation system is essentially an honor system that depends on self-assessment and honesty. When taxpayers make mistakes, they are expected to correct them promptly and completely. How can we tell the taxpayers that they are expected to comply fully with our tax laws, when these laws have been treated so cavalierly by the person who would lead the Treasury Department and, ultimately, the Internal Revenue Service, when he was applying them to himself?

The Republicans (RINOS) who voted to confirm:
Bob Corker (R-TN), John Cornyn (R-TX), Mike Crapo (R-ID), John Ensign (R-NV), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Judd Gregg (R-NH), Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Richard Shelby (R-AL), Olympia Snowe (R-ME), George Voinovich (R-OH)

The day is surely drawing near! Obamassiah has mounted the Democrat donkey and is approaching the Holy City for his triumphal entry! The countdown continues! Will the ball descend in Times Square? I don't know. TV hosts are breathless. They're fawning over Obambi, the Young Prince. It's quite sickening, actually.....

Israel in Gaza: A Reader's Letter....

The image “http://media.collegepublisher.com/media/paper344/stills/307iqbpt.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
Israeli soldiers are seen at a staging area along the Israel-Gaza border

A note from a friend today:
....recent poll of U.S./ survey on whether Israel was justified to go into Gaza:
44% Yes
41% No
Tomorrow, %s will likely be reversed, with more news time for demonstrations, photos, endless processions of Palestinian talking heads, the requisite allotment of dead and bloody children, and talk of merciless bombings of Hospitals, Mosques, and Schools by the ruthless Israeli "offense" Force.
Rarely do I hear of the 3-4 thousand misslie that have fallen upon Israel over the last several years.
Or, after leaving gaza after almost forty years of occupation, the Israelis have been continuously bombed
and rocketed, or that the Egyptians give quiet tacit approval to the infiltration of rockets from their contiguous border,
or that Hamas, Hezbolah, and the Taliban are all supported by Iran, who is the true culprit of moral animus in this world, along with their puppet, Syria, eta, or that those same Mosques, schools, and hospitals are launching/storage points of
weapons of mass destruction (missles-new and improved/made in Iran or China), or that children are taught to Hate through song and Martyrdom. Or that Israel is tiny, at it narrowist only 7-8 miles wide, with a view of the Mediterranean from the Golan Heights, on a clear and sunny day.
How would Americans respond if drug lords from south of the Rio Grande launched missiles (with a blind eye from the Mexican government) onto San Diego and southern U.S.towns, twenty five miles into our border? Would we determine the extent of our wrath by limiting a response to equaling the number of deaths and injuries sustained by our civilians; or our soldiers; or our infra-structure? Would not the police in your town respond with all at their disposal if a threat was at hearth and home? Or would "one" deign to ask for a band aid while the transgressor is huffing and puffing at your very threshhold? I choose to protect my life and limb, property, loved ones, and the right to quiet enjoyment. It is difficult to loose the dogs of war in the midst of cyber-space. Only Western armies even attempt to diminish the risk of civilian casualties, at the cost to the safety of "le soldat". But each casualty is counted; even the unsubstantiated or
exaggerated...The fish I caught was yeaaaaah big!!...It is not my intent to make light of death and suffering, but neither
should one continually turn the other cheek whilst being molested...That ability is best left for those more divine than I.
The Solution:
From a bourgeoise perspective; Mother Palestinians-self actualize your children. Preach love, peace, education. Be constructive in thought and action. Forgive...Peace...Shalom...Salam...
From the intransigent perspective; Push Zion into the sea.
Mothers-Take back your children's lives from outside instigators. Remove Hezbolah/Hama/Iranian Influence...
Allow a Nato peace Force to be a temporary stepping stone toward an independent and stable state.
Rejoin the world by emulating your great ancestral scholars, astronomers and mathematicians.
Turn Jihad into Plowshares...Allah and your children will be lovingly proud.

Murderer Yaser Said Still at Large: Killed These Girls a Year Ago...


A year has gone by and still no peace for the murdered Said sisters, Sarah and Amina. Their father, Yaser Said pictured above, is still on the run. A segment on America's Most Wanted last November has yielded no clues so far.

Many thanks to Pam Geller at Atlas Shrugs for her attention to this case including today's post.

Texas blogger Gringo Ranch has been out in front on this case with entries here, here, here, here and here.
Following is a gallery of photos of these beautiful sisters presented in their memory.
