Jodi Kantor vets the Mormon Church

Sometimes I have to applaud the left for their sheer audacity. Do they ever actually read what they produce to understand how incredibly stupid they appear? No, “appear” isn’t the right word. They are stupid.

Jodi Kantor of the New York Slimes contributed a piece on May 19 that has had me chuckling for several days. Ms. Kantor decided that the 100 or so people who still read the Times should know what Mormonism is all about and how it shapes Mr. Romney’s business and political life.

Ms. Kantor writes

Now, as the presumptive Republican nominee for president, Mr. Romney speaks so sparingly about his faith — he and his aides frequently stipulate that he does not impose his beliefs on others — that its influence on him can be difficult to detect. (emphasis added)

Ms. Kantor further writes

As a young consultant who arrived at the office before anyone else, Mr. Romney was being “deseret,” a term from the Book of Mormon meaning industrious as a honeybee….

Oh, the horror, being industrious is just not to be tolerated from a potential President of the United States. Romney clearly missed the memo the Presidency is for endless rounds of golf, games of basketball, and turning the White House into a Frat House.

Mitt and Ann Romney’s marriage is strong because they believe they will live together in an eternal afterlife, relatives and friends say, which motivates them to iron out conflicts.

No, no, no, we can’t be having family values from a leader. That just muddles the whole plan to dismantle the family unit. What is wrong with those Mormons? How dare they work to resolve issues and put divorce lawyers out of business. How unthoughtful of them.

Mr. Romney’s penchant for rules mirrors that of his church, where he once excommunicated adulterers and sometimes discouraged mothers from working outside the home. He may have many reasons for abhorring debt, wanting to limit federal power, promoting self-reliance and stressing the unique destiny of the United States, but those are all traditionally Mormon traits as well.

Rules, rules, rules. Too many rules, man. Those Mormons just seem more heinous with every stroke of Ms. Kantor’s pen.  Self-reliance, we can’t have self-reliance in America, that will just put all those government workers out of a job, then what? I suppose Romney and the Mormons will be expecting them to be self-reliant too.

He prays for divine guidance on business decisions and political races, say those who have joined him.

Well my heavens, what next? Praying for guidance? That’s just too much.

While Mr. Romney has expressed some views at odds with his church’s teachings — in Massachusetts, he supported measures related to alcohol and gambling, both frowned upon by the church

Okay, wasn’t the concern that his Mormon faith would hinder his ability to govern without imposing his moral views on his constituents? I’m just sayin’…..

other positions flow directly from his faith, including his objections to abortion and same-sex marriage

Considering that nearly every single state that had a ballot referendum to allow same-sex marriage overwhelmingly rejected it, it seems to me that Romney is in pretty good company. By the way, Ms. Kantor, it was the minorities in California that squelched the same-sex marriage proposition, not the Mormons.

The church, which often requests recipients of charity to perform some sort of labor in return, taught Mr. Romney to believe that “there’s a dignity in work and a dignity in helping those who are in need of help,” his eldest son, Tagg, said in an interview.

No WAY! Dignity? We can’t have people maintaining their dignity. What is this world coming to? Dignity. What next? American Exceptionalism?

Or take Mr. Romney’s frequent tributes to American exceptionalism. “I refuse to believe that America is just another place on the map with a flag,” he said in announcing his bid for the presidency last June. Every presidential candidate highlights patriotism, but Mr. Romney’s is backed by the Mormon belief that the United States was chosen by God to play a special role in history, its Constitution divinely inspired.

See, I told you, it was just a matter of time. Those Mormons are just beyond the pale. How could they belive that America is exceptional and the Constitution is divinely inspired? Why do they have to bring God into everything?

In Mr. Romney’s upbeat promises that he can rouse the economy from its long slump, fellow Mormons hear their faith’s emphasis on resilience and can-do optimism. He believes that people “can learn to be happy and prosperous,”

There he goes again thinking people can depend on themselves instead of depending on the government. He really is too much.

…Mr. Romney’s squeaky-clean persona — only recently did he stop using words like “golly” in public ….

Wow, he doesn’t spew obscenities. Dreadful, Mitt, that’s just dreadful. Get with it man.

He and others say that wholesomeness is deeply authentic to Mr. Romney, whose spiritual life revolves around personal rectitude.

Get out of town! Wholesome? Why wasn’t he smoking dope with Hawaiian kids looking for a brawl, or attending school sparingly, or hanging out with the Marxist professors? Being a degenerate is so much more hip, especially if you’re going to be preezy of the united steezy.

The article continues, drones is more like it, with Ms. Kantor trying to portray Mormons and Mormonism as some kind of what? What was the intent here? I read a story that portrays Romney as self-reliant, moral, wholesome, generous, devoted to  his wife and his family, with a strong belief in his country’s greatness. It should come as no surprise that the left finds those traits repulsive. But this is what the left does, they preach tolerance to the rest of us, while failing to see that they are the most intolerant of all.

Of course, we should not be surprised that Ms. Kantor wrote the smashing success (#20,335 on Amazon) The Obamas. Meanwhile, I’ll wait for her expose’ on Black Liberation Theology as practiced by the Obamas and their pastor of 20 years, Jeremiah Wright.



Liberal pundit Bob Beckel launches an on-air verbal F*Bomb assault on conservative woman and blames Hannity.

Bob Beckel made an appearance on Sean Hannity’s Great American Panel tonight and got into a heated dispute with  Jennifer Stefano during the break. As they came back on air Beckel was screaming at Stefano telling her she did not know what the f#@k she was talking about. When Hannity asked him to apologize he refused and blamed Hannity for the incident.

Mark Steyn on Flukemania

The always insightful and hilarious Mark Steyn finally weighs in on the charade surrounding the 30 year old child, Sandra Fluke’s perfectly sensible demand that we pay for her contraception and that a Catholic institution should be forced to violate its religious principles in order to accommodate her. That president Obama and the Democrats gleefully used this useful idiot to advance their big government desires granting the plebes protection for their sexual romps while stealing liberty with the other hand is not really surprising.

Bread and Circus. And Condoms.

Fantastic artwork from iMaksim. Click on the image to embiggen it.

All of us are born with the unalienable right to life, liberty, and a lifetime supply of premium ribbed silky-smooth ultrasensitive spermicidal lubricant condoms. No taxation without rubberization, as the Minutemen said. The shot heard round the world, and all that.

He’ll be filling in for Rush on Monday, so if you don’t want to go read the whole thing, I’m sure a portion of it will be covered then.

Aside from the sheer ridiculousness of the phoney congressional hearing, and aside from the moral implications, and aside from a government imposing tyrannical dictates on the people, the issue Steyn focuses on is whether this debtor nation can afford to do what Obama and the Democrats want to do.

Should we borrow money from China to pay for Sandra Fluke’s rampant promiscuity?


Occupy Unmasked: Green, Yellow, Red

This was another fascinating observation from the CPAC event that Citizens United and Andrew Breitbart held on Thursday regarding their new movie project, “Occupy Unmasked”.  As I indicated earlier, rather than approaching this from the mentality of the right, they went out and found people who were once deeply connected and embedded within the leftist movement to understand the mentality and tactics involved.

One such former leftist community organizer is Brandon Darby.  He explains that what appears to be disorganized mayhem is really very well orchestrated and not all of the players know that they are being manipulated into playing a role in a play about which they are totally unaware.

What we saw on Friday and Saturday at CPAC were mostly players from the Green Team working under orders from puppet masters. 

As the panelists were speaking, two Occupy protesters walked up to the stage and unrolled a big banner attacking Kris Kobach, the secretary of state of Kansas. Kobach is a very smart lawyer who worked at the Bush Justice Department and was elected secretary of state in 2010. He has raised the ire of liberals because of his support for common-sense election reforms like voter-ID and proof-of-citizenship requirements for individuals registering to vote, both of which were passed by the Kansas legislature.

However, Kobach has also worked on immigration issues and helped Arizona legislators draft their immigration law that has been attacked by the Obama Justice Department. That law has served as a model for many other states, such as Alabama, that have passed similar measures in the wake of the Obama administration’s non-enforcement policy. Kobach was at CPAC to speak on an immigration panel.

There was only one problem for the protesters — they were in the wrong room (LOL!). Kobach’s panel was going on elsewhere in the hotel and he was not on the panel that David Keene was moderating or the one that was about to start. When Keene told the protesters that, everyone in the room started laughing at them and they sheepishly folded up their banner and left. They apparently never made it to the actual room where Kobach was speaking.

That was obviously a puppet master FAIL executed by mindless Greenies.

Brandon Darby’s talk on Thursday made me wary that these kinds of distractions were being employed to do something even more nefarious.  Fortunately it didn’t turn out to be anymore than bluster this time.

This time. 



Komen caves to shrieking baby killers. Saddleburr screwed.

Regrettably, the glowing post I did in support of the Susan G. Komen Foundation’s decision to stop funding Planned Parenthood was premature, as they have just reversed their decision.

Unfortunately, I donated fifty bucks after my blog post and now I can’t seem to get through to them on the telephone to demand a refund.  I’m not giving up.

The NLRB and Labor Unions, The Unholy Alliance Continues

Each and every day for the past two weeks, I’ve seen the following message when I log into the website of our company’s payroll and benefits provider:

Please note that the NLRB recently communicated the following information regarding a new posting requirement.
Mandatory Federal (NLRB) Update – Poster Pending

The National Labor Relations Board has issued a Final Rule requiring most private-sector employers to notify employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act by posting a notice.

Employers must also post the notice on an intranet or an internet site if personnel rules and policies are customarily posted there. The rule will take effect on November 14, 2011.

The posting has not yet been released; the NLRB states it will be released on or before November 1, 2011. When the posting is released, posters will be made available to all clients. Further details to follow.

For those of you who haven’t stepped foot inside the employee lounge or personnel office lately, let me clarify this for you. No doubt you’ve seen the numerous posters covering topics from Minimum Wage to Employee Rights, etc. (Now in both English and Spanish for those of you who refuse to speak the language of the country that you are living and working in). But let me not get off topic here. This is nothing more than the National Labor Relations Board, a FEDERAL GOVERNMENT entity, working hand-in-hand with the Unions that put Barack Hussein Obama and the vast majority of Democrats into their Senate and Congressional offices, both nationally and locally. This is the NLRB doing their part to reward the Unions for their continued support of Leftist Progressive Liberal Agendas by PROMOTING and ENCOURAGING private sector employees to rise up and form a Union in their workplace.

What Obama cannot get passed in Congress (Card Check comes immediately to mind), he will find a way to pass through some other backdoor method. The Unions are failing everywhere except for in the Public Sector. Why? Because everyone with an IQ over 11 knows that the Union does nothing for them while lining the pockets of the Union Leaders and ensuring that Liberals continue to win elections and perpetuate the cycle of Union dues paying for Liberals’ campaigns, Liberals win and reward the Union leaders with more legislation and regulation favorable to Unions. What about the Union members that don’t support those Liberal candidates or incumbents? No soup for you!


August 2nd Debt Deadline Armageddon?

People aren’t falling for it. 

In spite of all the claims of calamity and misery if the debt limit isn’t raised by August 2nd, a constant drumbeat from the White House, Congressional Democrats and their megaphone in the lame stream media, apparently we’ve grown accustomed to these kinds of wild-eyed claims in the past that proved to be utterly false.

TARP, anyone?  Stimulus?  Automaker Bailouts?  They were all sold as absolutely necessary and something that needed to be done with great haste.

We recognize this all-too-familiar tactic used to frighten people into going along with each hare-brained government scheme to seize more and more of the economy.

As to whether or not people believe that the failure to raise the debt ceiling by August 2nd has been successfully sold, here’s an online poll from Mark Levin’s website.


I realize that this is not a scientific poll and it is from Levin’s listeners, probably the most informed and most conservative people in the country, but some of them actually fell for TARP initially.  92% of them think this whole thing is a con job and an artificial deadline being hyped by the most dishonest President ever to hold office.


CNN debate format effectively squelched any chance for statesmanship

In this sound bite world of text messages, 140 character or less tweets, and short attention spans, political statesmanship may become a lost art. This week CNN produced a presidential debate that discouraged eloquence and elaboration. The 30 second time limited response more closely resembled a speed dating session. It was hard to tell if John King was suffering from Tourette’s, ADHD or both.

This format was designed to stifle the impact of the candidates and prevent true statesmanship from blossoming. By limiting and minimizing their responses, CNN effectively neutered the Republican hopefuls.

Watch this version of Patrick Henry’s famous oration by actor Dean Jones. It is a fairly brief and extremely remarkable speech of just under 3 minutes but just imagine how unremarkable it would have been had John King been there to grunt him to a halt at the 30 second mark.


Andrew Breitbart Exposes MSM Double Standard

Andrew Breitbart is on the circuit promoting his new book “Righteous Indignation”. In the book Breitbart mentions that while attending college, he consumed more than a little alcohol. Somehow this less than shocking revelation prompted host Peter Slen to ask Breitbart about his current relationship with alcohol. Breitbart, quite taken by the question rightly challenges the host.  Slen claims it is a fair question since Breitbart mentioned it in his book to which Breitbart asks “I graduated  20 years ago and I’m admitting to my flaws the way that Barack Obama admitted that he did cocaine when he was in college, would you ask Barack Obama in an interview with him, would it be one of the ten questions you ask him; what is your current relationship with cocaine?”

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Black Democrat “steps in it” then expects a hispanic to clean it up.

South Carolina State Senator, Robert Ford D-SC exercised his freedom of speech today on the Statehouse floor.  But the Senator, who ran unsuccessfully for Governor last year, may have exceeded the “extended” boundaries that Democrats can usually expect to enjoy.  While discussing the Palmetto State’s legislative efforts to pass an aggressive, tougher state immigration policy, akin to the “controversial” Arizona law passed last year, “Sen. Ford complained such a position would hurt South Carolina because blacks and whites don’t work as hard as Hispanics.” (Source: Yahoo News)

These comments elicited what Yahoo termed a “smattering of nervous laughter”.  The kind of nervous laughter usually reserved for anything that comes out of Jake Knotts’ mouth, I might add.   But for those who thought that the good Senator may have misspoke, Ford went on, offering THIS by way of an  historical foundation to his shaky allegation,  ” once his ancestors were freed from slavery, he said, they didn’t want to do any more hard work, so they were replaced by Chinese and Japanese.”  Can’t you just picture this phrase etched on the back of a grainy old photograph or one of the Senator’s treasured heirlooms?  Maybe pressed into a book with a lock of a Senator Ford’s baby hair?  I can’t.

Well, that MIGHT explain Nissan and Toyota springing from the “biblical loins” of the UAW, but I’m not sure about further historical significance.    Since Chris Matthews or Ed Schultz wouldn’t be caught DEAD in South Carolina, Sen. Ford was on his own. “The brothers are going to find ways to take a break.  Ever since this country was built, we’ve had somebody do the work for us”, said Ford.  For those playing the Good ‘Ol Boys Network board game at HOME, “brothers” is African-American Democrat Slang for “constituents.”   Deaf to his Democrat “brothers” on the floor, begging him to yield his remaining time, Sen. Ford went from bad to worse, detailing another personal story about “four workers in the country illegally (who) showed up on his lawn and finished mowing, edging and other work in 30 minutes that would take others much longer, and only wanted $10 for the job.”   This puts an odd twist on the Democrat devotion to minimum wage reform.

If you’re having difficulty absorbing just the dizzying pace of this story,   so was state GOP chairman, Joel Sawyer who called Ford’s comments, “abhorrent and incredibly offensive” but also wanted the number of the aforementioned Yard Service.   Sawyer also positively identified the racist tone of these remarks.

But in flexing his African American extended freedom of speech rights in America, Senator Ford forcefully blunted any criticism that might follow his address today, urging his colleagues to “get over it” and “not take things so seriously.”   Bravo, Senator. 

The NAACP summed up Ford’s comments as an “unfortunate choice of words.”  This was the expected call for restraint NEVER extended to Republicans.   Just coming within six degrees of implying something like this can cost a Republican his livelihood.   The double-standard goes on in America.  Look for absolutely no repercussions from this. 

Except one, this “tougher, more aggressive, Arizona-style Immigration bill” WILL pass in South Carolina.  Despite the lowly SATs, the preponderance of Dead-Beat Dads, junkie-Moms, “Lizard-Man” sightings, and blind NASCAR devotion in the Palmetto State, I’m still proud to call this state my home.    We are still a conservative state at heart. Despite an overabundance of Senator Fords in South Carolina politics, this is STILL a great place to live. 

You Yankees, eat your heart out.   From the Batcave, this is your Garnet n Black Gadfly on the Wall.  

Arrivaderci, babies !
