Reality Check

Harry Reid tries to lay failure to pass health-care by August on the media:

That is a deadline that you created,” Reid told a group of about 75 reporters. “It’s not like we don’t have a product. Significant progress has been made … The mere fact that this wasn’t done by last Friday or by five o’clock doesn’t mean we’re not going to get a quality product.” – The Hill

Oh really?

Speaker Nancy Pelosi told President Obama today that the Democratic-led House will have a health care bill on the floor before it leaves for the August recess.

The goal is “quality, affordable, accessible health care for all Americans,” Pelosi told reporters after a White House meeting with Obama and other House leaders.

Obama set the deadline at July 31 and said it shows “the kind of urgency and dedication that we need.” – USA Today

Another bogus ruling from a human rights tribunal…

Guilt, now, apparently is solely in the mind of the complainant. No one needs to prove you had intent to discriminate, that you had a guilty mind. The minute a rights charge is levelled, it is up to you to establish your innocence. – Lorne Gunter

Mrs Greenspan Lectures The Unwashed

Mrs Greenspan Lectures The Unwashed

You’ve got 47% of the people in our NBC/Wall Street Journal opinion poll who have health insurance who don’t like what the president is doing.  The problem he’s got — 47% of the people who’ve got coverage don’t want change.  They don’t like what they’re hearing. Now, they may not know what’s good for them, but the problem is that he always knew he was going to have to persuade people with insurance, that’s the largest number, not the people without insurance, for expanded coverage.  So they’ve got a real problem. – NewBusters

I hate to say it but we are going to need at least a couple more years of cooler than normal weather to drill the truth into the heads of the global warming hucksters. Get yer touques out.

It was delightfully appropriate that, as large parts of Argentina were swept by severe blizzards last week, on a scale never experienced before, the city of Nashville, Tennessee, should have enjoyed the coolest July 21 in its history, breaking a record established in 1877. Appropriate, because Nashville is the home of Al Gore, the man who for 20 years has been predicting that we should all by now be in the grip of runaway global warming. – Telegraph

Hugo’s New Media Offensive

Lefty darling Hugo has decided that criminal charges are warranted when the remaining independent media outlets have the nerve to criticize his policies.

hugochavez

“The only player that exposes many of the things the government is doing is the media, and the government feels it has to regulate them,” professor Marcelino Bisbal, editor of the book “Communication Hegemony and Control,” told AFP.

He said the government is developing eight new laws or reforms of existing laws that will have an impact on the media, including one that creates a new set of “media crimes” punishable with prison sentences.

Until now media companies and executives have been subjected to administrative penalties, but if the proposed changes are adopted they could face criminal charges in the future. – Breitbart

Neda Agha-Soltan

Iranian police have used force at a Tehran cemetery to stop crowds rallying at the grave of a protester Neda Agha-Soltan who died in demonstrations after the disputed presidential election.

Witnesses said police used batons and sticks to beat mourners at Behesht-e Zahra cemetery where opposition leaders are planning a memorial visit to the cemetery south of Tehran to mark the 40th day since the death of Neda Agha-Soltan.

The young woman came to symbolise the protest movement against the re-election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad last month after a graphic video of her bleeding to death was distributed on the internet. – Telegraph

Cambridge Police Profiling Still A Grim Reality for Harvard Faculty Assholes

When I first learned of the arrest of my colleague Professor Henry Louis “Skip” Gates after he stood up to the fascist jackboots of a declasse, ill-educated Cambridge police officer, I was of course angered — but scarcely shocked. L’Affaire Gates simply aired, in public, the dirty 100-thread-count table linen of an American culture where Harvard faculty assholes still face a daily struggle against profiling, abuse, and insolence.

It will come as no surprise that Skip’s arrest was the talk of the Douchebag Room at the Harvard Faculty Club last Friday. I and a group of colleagues had assembled for our weekly lunch; I opted for their competently-prepared Ahi Tuna Tartare and an amusing glass of ’05 Hospices de Beaune Premier Cru Cuvee Cyrot-Chaudron. I had noticed that the Frantz Fanon Memorial Booth — Skip’s long-reserved lunch spot — was uncharacteristically empty, and asked our waiter Sergio for an explanation.

“Professor Skeep, he no is come today,” said Sergio. “I tink he is in the jail.” – More

ACLU Doublespeak

Maybe they should just change their name…

The ACLU has built a reputation of hostility towards Christianity in the public sphere. Their agenda of keeping church and state separated when it comes to this particular religion has been consistent. They filed lawsuits against valedictorians mentioning the name of Jesus in their speeches, Ten Commandments displays at court houses, public officials closing their prayers in Jesus’ name, and war memorials in the shape of crosses. Their stance against the Gideons has a long history.

But one thing is not consistent in the ACLU’s quest for separation of church and state. Take a careful look at the ACLU’s cases — double standards are plentiful.

The religion almost exclusively litigated against is Christianity.

The ACLU has actually supported other religions doing the very things they fight against when Christians do them.

The ACLU fought for the installation of footbaths in a public school in Detroit to accommodate Muslims.

Alarms sounded from the ACLU when a coach bowed his head for a student led pre-game prayer, though there was never a peep heard when a school in Michigan taught Muslim prayers and required bowing to Mecca and role playing.

The irony of the ACLU stance on separation of church and state is how it negatively affects free speech. – Pajamas Media

Liberal Corruption – Media Edition

The Liberal Party caught manufacturing a story with media help.

CTV’s Robert Fife reports this evening that it was the Liberal Party who concocted the false story of Prime Minister Stephen Harper pocketing a communion wafer at a Roman Catholic mass, and that these people within the Liberal Party delivered the story to a Liberal-friendly newspaper publisher, who then passed it down to a Liberal-friendly editor, who published the story under the byline of two professional reporters who had nothing to do with this. – Angry
