What happens when Michelle Obama and Hilary Clinton hails, Maria Bashir,  as a  champion of women’s rights, and it turns out that this woman throws other women in jail for adultery?

Delicious irony, that’s what!   The Daily Mail has more…

Last year she was hailed as one of the most influential people in the world – a defender of women’s rights as Afghanistan’s only female head prosecutor.

Ms Bashir has been lauded by both Michelle Obama and Hilary Clinton – and she was one of ten women to receive a ‘Women of Courage’ Award in Washington last year.

But Maria Bashir’s reputation is now in doubt after the Times revealed that Ms Bashir is also the most prolific prosecutor of women for Afghanistan’s so-called ‘moral’ crimes, such as adultery.

While Ms Bashir campaigns against abuse husbands, more than half of the 172 women jailed in Afghanistan for sex outside of marriage (known as ‘zina’) have come from her province.

Now, here is what Obama and Clinton said of Bashir…

When she received her award, the two presidential wives said: ‘Ms Bashir has waged a determined campaign against crime and corruption.

‘She stands out as a champion of judicial transparency and women’s rights, and exemplifies the resilience of Afghan women.’

Now, this administration can force Catholics to fund abortions.  They can criticism people that cling to their “guns and religion.”  But, they will honor a woman that send women to prison for cheating on their husbands?  Where are the Tammies?  Will they send seven women to protest this, and claim that there were 50,000?  Will Sandra Fluke flop again, or will the feminists just crawl back under the bus where they belong?

Resistence is futile.  It is!  No really!  Aw c’mon!  Assimilate!

Today at the Worldwide Headquarters of Manhattan Infidel just give me your purse lady and no one gets hurt I have the distinct pleasure of interviewing Locutus of Borg.  Locutus is a controversial figure here on Earth, seeing as he was charged with making our assimilation into the Borg collective easier.  I am honored that he has chosen me for his first Earth interview.

MI:  Welcome Locutus.  Let’s start out with some background questions about you.

LB:  I am Locutus of Borg.

MI: Yes I know that.  Now how did you get the job as the spokesman for the Borg?

LB:   Resistance is futile.

MI:  That’s what I told my ex wife on our first date when I had her in the back seat of my car.

LB:  Your life as it has been is over.

MI:  That’s what my ex wife told me when we got married.   Now what I’d – 

LB:   From this time forward you will service us.

MI:  Hey pal I ain’t servicing nobody until I see some cash up front.

LB:  You will disarm your weapons and escort us to sector 0-0-1. If you attempt to intervene we will destroy you.

MI:  And that’s why my wife’s divorce lawyer told me.  Now what I’d like to know – 

LB:  Resistance is futile.

MI:  Alright I’m going to have to ask you to get off your talking points or I’ll cut your mike.

LB:  [Pause.]  Okay.  The queen won’t like this but what would you like to know. 

MI:  You’re first attempt to assimilate Earth was unsuccessful.  What makes you think the second attempt will succeed?

LB:  Well basically with our first try we didn’t do our homework.  We chose the wrong area to assimilate.

MI:  You’re referring to the Borg landing in New York City?

LB:  Yes.  Specifically upper Manhattan.  Washington Heights I believe you humans call it.

MI:  What happened?

LB:  I walked into this bodega and the told the woman behind the counter that resistance was futile and that her life as she knows it is over.  I mean that line always worked on other worlds.

MI:  What did she do?

LB:  She said, “You better show some respect when you talk to me Papi!”  And the she slapped me.  Knocked some of my Borg implants out.  

MI:  That must have been embarrassing.

LB:  It was………..undignified.

MI:  And then what?

LB:  The next thing I know I was surrounded by Earthers.  They kept taunting me saying, “Chump ass with the implants don’t start no trouble won’t be no trouble.”

MI:  You’re not used to resistance?

LB:  Hell no.  Usually we just give them the old ‘resistance is futile’ line and they fold.   But these New Yorkers chased me out of the store and up Broadway throwing things at me.  I think they fired a few shots as well.

MI:  Well it serves you right.  You just don’t walk into a bodega in Washington Heights and pull that shit. You’re lucky you’re still alive.  So how did this episode end?

LB:  Well to make a long story short I ended up face down floating in the Harlem River.  Most of my Borg implants had been stolen.  And my wallet was missing too.

MI:  Borgs carry wallets?

LB:  Where else are we going to store our credit cards?

MI:  Interesting.  So then what?

LB:  I floated over to the Bronx where some Seventh Day Adventists picked me up and cared for me.   And hey they did me a whale of good.  I converted.  I’m a vegetarian now.  No pork, shellfish, alcohol or tobacco for me.  I’m clean.  

MI:  What do the other Borg think of your conversion?

LB:  They were concerned at first.  They thought my new religious beliefs would make me lose my edge.  But then I explained to them that Seventh Day Adventists were not Methodists and that seemed to allay their fears.

MI: So what’s next for Locutus of Borg?

LB:  Well I’m getting my green card.  And I’m opening a flower shop.  “Resistance to my flowers is futile” is the slogan.  Pretty catchy don’t you think?

MI:  I, wow.  Um.  I don’t know what to say.

LB:  Hey can we wrap this up?  I’m late for the Adventist picnic.  Why don’t you come along?

MI:  Okay.  Will there be any alcohol?

LB:  Alcohol?  Please.  We’re not Catholics.

MI: Then I’m going to have to pass.  Thank you for the interview.

LB:  No problem.  And if you see Deanna Troi tell her I’m sorry I haven’t called her but I’ve been busy.

MI:  Will do.

I thank Locutus of Borg for his time.  And drop by his flower shop.  I like to see small businesses succeed.

War on Religion Continues: Vanderbilt Catholics to Leave due to Non-Discrimination Policy

Share

The title may seem a bit confusing, and it’s about to get worse.  For, you see, Vanderbilt has a non-discrimination policy that discriminates against certain groups, particularly of the religious persuasion.  For more, here is an excerpt from The Blaze…

The ruckus over Vanderbilt University’s non-discrimination policy and regulations that require campus Christian groups (among others) to allow non-believers to serve in leadership roles continues. This week, Vanderbilt Catholic, one of the largest faith clubs at the school, has announced that it will not comply with the newly-enforced rules.

The Catholic group’s decision will mean that, as of the end of the year, it will no longer be an official university group. Instead, it will serve as an off-campus ministry. The Rev. John Sims Baker, a chaplain at Vanderbilt Catholic, said on Tuesday that the group has been forced to make the rash decision to leave campus. It is the first Vanderbilt group to make such an announcement.

Of course, it would be senseless to stay.  The effort is very similar to Sandra Fluke’s choice to attend Georgetown-to change the religious institution’s policy on contraception. As for Vanderbilt, those “hateful” Christian groups can be infiltrated by people not of that faith, and be rendered irrelevant.  Consequently, these groups, starting with the Catholics will leave, rather than be infiltrated and destroyed from within.  In the end, I would predict that this is the desired result, as their influence on campus will be greatly diminished.

If I were Satan, I’d consider it a near perfect plan.

Birth Control Mandates: A Totally Manufactured, Completely False, Non-Issue

Share

Imagine, if you will, that you are a failed POTUS.  Your economic interventions have achieved the exact opposite of their stated intent.  While that is likely your intended outcome, there are a lot of unhappy people because of it.  Your energy programs have worked as you promised-costs have risen considerably, but that makes people pretty unhappy as well.  You make power grab after power grab, and each and every one causes more failure and misery-just as intended.  Needless to say, you’d really like the media to obsessively talk about something else, because you need a distraction from your “Clowarding and Pivening” of the Republic.    It doesn’t matter if it’s an exaggeration, or even  if it’s a complete fabrication.  The news cycle needs to be clogged with nonsense so the people don’t hear about your failures.

The MSM, represented by former Clinton staffer and current ABC talking head, George Stephanopoulos,  tried to jumpstart a distraction during one of the recent Republican debates.

He failed.  And it was an epic failure, because, as Romney pointed out, no one wants to ban contraception-so why bring it up at all, unless it’s a distraction? (wink-wink-nudge-nudge)

But, in my potentially “hypothetical” scenario, the efforts can’t stop there.  After all, you are still a failed POTUS, and a distraction must be manufactured.  So the efforts continued.  Then, you thought of throwing Catholics, many of which voted for you in 2008, under the bus.  However, being useful idiots, it’s perfectly acceptable to discard them. So, you have one of your minions create a mandate that forces Catholic institutions provide coverage for contraception and abortion.  Surely, that will raise a sufficient ruckus to distract from your failure…right?  Of course, we would all have to completely disregard the fact that birth control is insanely cheap, and readily available, but since when are actual facts important in such matters?

Well, it did-the Catholics raised a very righteous uproar, and actually hit you for violating religious freedom.  Then, you made a compromise that really didn’t change anything, and that part of the story died down.  But, the distraction must go on, so you need to keep it going. So, you get your remaining Congress-minions to hold some hearings, and have some activists “testify” about the human misery and death caused by a lack of coverage for a cheap and readily available class of products.  Here is that testimony…

OK then, contraception can cost $3000 for three years of Law school?  Let’s take a look at the actual costs.  Here is a source…

Obviously, birth control pills do not cost a grand a year.  Even Planned Parenthood agrees…

First, you’ll need to get a prescription. Visit a Planned Parenthood health center, a clinic, or a private health care provider for a prescription. Your health care provider will discuss your medical history with you, check your blood pressure, and give you any othermedical exam that you may need. If you need an exam, it may cost about $35$250.

Birth control pills may be purchased with a prescription at a drugstore or clinic. They cost about $15–$50 a month. 

Planned Parenthood works to make health care accessible and affordable. Some health centers are able to charge according to income. Most accept health insurance. If you qualify, Medicaid or other state programs may lower your health care costs. 

Call your local Planned Parenthood health center to get specific information on costs.

But, what of condoms?  I visited the Condom Depot to see how much condoms cost-even in bulk.  Here are the results…

Of course, I chose the rainbow condoms, just in case Ms. Fluke is feeling festive.  At any rate, let’s do the math…

She will be in law school for 1095 days.  Divided by 10,000 condoms that cost slightly less than the $3000 dollars that she quoted, she can have protected sexual intercourse 9.13 times a day.  Now, if Ms. Fluke, and the “faces” that she sees every day, actually have sexual intercourse 9.13 times a day, they might really need financial assistance to cover the condom bill.  In the end, no matter how much she partakes, she wants the rest of us to pay for her to have sex…alot of sex.

Which brings Rush Limbaugh into the game.  Those of you that listen to Limbaugh know that he takes great pleasure in ridiculing nonsense like this false testimony.  Naturally, he chimed in…

That, of course, led to a complete crap-storm on the left.  Here are some links: Los Angeles TimesWashington PostAngry BearCBS NewsNewsBusters.org blogsL.A. NOWBusiness InsiderWashington MonthlyThe Right ScoopNews DeskJay Bookman and Gawker.

Of course, Limbaugh doesn’t care, and is laughing about the entire thing.  The left has caused two of his sponsors to stop advertising on his show, and frankly, if they want to ignore his 20,000,000 (plus) listeners, they probably do so at their own peril, as they might boycott the advertisers.

And, when this dies down, the story will be rinsed and repeated.  Or perhaps, even completely different story will be manufactured.  But no matter what, we can’t spend a moment talking about the economy, can we?

Now, I have to make a rather controversial nomination…

7.  Catholics:  For so many being duped into voting for Obama, and supporting ObamaCare.

Now, before my Catholic friends come and promise me eternal damnation, allow me to first say that many Catholics, while initially duped, have awakened to the danger posed by Obama.  They are on the list because so many ignored the obvious warning signs.  They were out there, and many were published either here, or on numerous other blogs.

At any rate, thanks for the nominations, and please take part in the poll.

Video: Priest Gives ObamaCare Mandates the “Finger”

Share

Teresa, over at Teresamerica, posted the following video.  The Priest in the video chronicles the lies Obama had told about ObamaCare, and the mandates therein.  Of course, Catholics supported ObamaCare, and like all useful idiots, and are now feeling the sting that comes with being tools for the government.   That, and they are now looking up at the bottom of the bus.

I can only hope that Catholics use this as a teachable moment.  They should have learned that…

1.  Socialism is based on lies.

2.  Socialized ANYTHING IS socialism.

3.  Regressive politicians will say anything to get their socialism passed.  Because they know that once it is  implemented, it will be nearly impossible to repeal.

America, The Land of the Free? What Constitution?

Share

Apart from some of us in the blogosphere, Americans go about their daily live with no cognition that their freedoms are being eroded away. There is no perception that they are any less free today than they ever were. And that, I believe, is by design.

Our constitution exist to protect us from our government, to protect our unalienable rights and, to limit the power of our government in Washington. Yet today our government pays little heed to this sacred document.

While I was recovering from retina surgery to my only, I managed to read my favorite blogs every day. Looking over the top of the gas bubble that was in my eye and using the Window’s virtual magnifying glass, I would spend over an hour reading a typical post. we old retired folks have plenty of time on our hands and I made use of it to stay up with my internet friends.

There are a handful of blogs that for me are a must read every day. One of those is the Bunkerville blog. Back in January, Bunker put up this post about the doings of Cass Sunstein, one of Obama’s czars who is no friend of our constitution. If you missed this article, you really need to give it a read. For now let me share his closing paragraph:

Continued Sunstein: “We suggest a distinctive tactic for breaking up the hard core of extremists who supply conspiracy theories: cognitive infiltration of extremist groups, whereby government agents or their allies (acting either virtually or in real space, and either openly or anonymously) will undermine the crippled epistemology of believers by planting doubts about the theories and stylized facts that circulate within such groups, thereby introducing beneficial cognitive diversity.” Full story at WND

Mr.  Sunstein really doesn’t like those who support conspiracy theories. Hmmm.  That means me, doesn’t it? Mr.  Sunstein has no qualms what so ever on spying on Americans that have a difference in opinion with our government.

But Sunstein is not the only out-of-control czar in this administration. Rereading Bunker’s post today, I read the comments for the first time. One of the commentors,  Wilma Frank,  sheds some light on some of the other czars:

The rest of the list:

Daniel Fried Guantanamo Closure Czar Human Rights activist for Foreign Terrorists.  Believes America has caused the war on terrorism. Believes terrorists have rights above and beyond Americans. Nancy-Ann DeParle.   Health Czar Former head of Medicare / Medicaid.  Strong Health Care Rationing proponent.  She is married to a reporter for The New York Times. Vivek Kundra Information Czar Born in New Delhi , India .  Controls all public information, including labels and news releases.  Monitors all private Internet emails. (hello?) Todd Stern   International Climate Czar Anti business former White House chief of Staff- Strong supporter of the Kyoto Accord.  Pushing hard for Cap and Trade.  Blames US business for Global warming.  Anti- US business prosperity. Dennis Blair Intelligence Czar Ret. Navy.  Stopped US guided missile program as “provocative”.  Chair of ultra liberal “Council on Foreign Relations” which blames American organizations for regional wars. George Mitchell Mideast Peace Czar Fmr. Sen from Maine Left wing radical.  Has said Israel should be split up into “2 or 3 ” smaller more manageable plots”.  (God forbid) A true Anti-nuclear anti-gun & pro homosexual “special rights” advocate Kenneth Feinberg Pay Czar Chief of Staff to TED KENNEDY.   Lawyer who got rich off the 911 victims payoffs. (horribly true) Cass Sunstein Regulatory Czar Liberal activist judge believes free speech needs to be limited for the “common good”.  Essentially against 1st amendment.  Rules against personal freedoms many times -like private gun ownership and right to free speech.   This guy has to be run out of Washington !! John Holdren Science Czar Fierce ideological environmentalist, Sierra Club, Anti business activist.  Claims US business has caused world poverty.  No Science training. Earl Devaney Stimulus Accountability Czar Spent career trying to take guns away from American citizens.  Believes in Open Borders to Mexico  .  Author of  statement blaming US gun stores for drug war in Mexico . J. Scott Gration   Sudan Czar Native of Democratic Republic of Congo .  Believes US does little to help Third World countries.  Council of foreign relations,asking for higher US taxes to support United Nations Herb Allison TARP Czar Fannie Mae CEO responsible for the US recession by using real estate mortgages to back up the US stock market. Caused millions of  people to lose their life savings. John Brennan Terrorism Czar Anti CIA activist.  No training in diplomatic or gov. affairs. Believes Open Borders to Mexico and a dialog with terrorists and has suggested Obama disband US military   A TOTAL MORON !!!!! Aneesh Chopra   Technology Czar No Technology training.   Worked for the Advisory Board Company, a health care think tank for hospitals. Anti doctor activist.  Supports Obama Health care Rationing and salaried doctors working exclusively for the Gov. health care plan Adolfo Carrion Jr. Urban Affairs Czar Puerto Rico born Anti-American activist and leftist group member in Latin America . Millionaire “slum lord” of the Bronx , NY.  Owns many lavish homes and condos which he got from “sweetheart” deals with labor unions.  Wants higher taxes on middle class to pay for minority housing and health care Ashton Carter Weapons Czar Leftist.  Wants all private weapons in US destroyed.  Supports UN ban on firearms ownership in America  ..  No Other “policy” Gary Samore WMD Policy Czar Former US Communist.   Wants US to destroy all WMD unilaterally as a show of good faith.  Has no other “policy”.

Americans should be very worried about what is going on in their government. Unfortunately, the vast majority of Americans are walking around in ignorant bliss.

Our constitution has been under attack since the day it was ratified. But never more blatantly than when Republican President, George W. Bush, took advantage of our collective fear after 9/11 to impose upon us the Patriot Act. The Patriot Act received overwhelming bipartisan support and continues to be renewed with bipartisan support. Where is the outrage?

Our current president, Barack Obama, has eagerly followed in the footsteps of his predecessor. Besides the evil doings of his Marxist czars, Obama has blatantly ignored the constitution on a regular basis, he ignores the orders of federal courts all the way up to the Supreme Court, he ignores Congress and, he ignores the will of the people. He has an agenda and that is all that matters to him. Through the National Defense Authorization Act, he gained the power to detain citizens “suspected” of being terrorist without due process. Where is the outrage?

The most recent attack on our rights and the constitution comes to us  by way of Obamacare, which in itself is an affront to the constitution. Obama is insisting that religious institution violate their beliefs (protected by the first amendment to the constitution) to provide women’s right to contraception and the morning after pill (abortion). This time there is outrage. It is coming from the leadership of the Catholic Church and other religious leaders and from social conservatives. Does Obama care? Not in the least. Obama and Axelrod have made the political calculation that they will have the support of the majority of women in November and they were never going to have the votes of the social conservatives anyway. So for Obama it is a net win. Is he right? He may very well be right. If the outrage remains confined to the social conservatives, then he has made a strategically good move. Unless more Americans recognize that this has nothing to do with “women’s rights” and everything to do with an attack on a fundamental pillar of our constitution; unless the outrage spreads dramatically, Obama’s agenda will take another giant step forward.

Yes, I am questioning if America is still the land of the free and I am question if our constitution still has relevance.

Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?

Santorum Capitalizes on Tuesday Victories

Share

Once again, the pundits are shocked, and Romney’s inevitability has again been put on hold.   Rick Santorum won three states on Tuesday, and it appears that his campaign has had an influx of cash as well.  More on the influx of cash from The Blaze…

His three wins yesterday were bound to give his fundraising numbers a boost today — but Rick Santorum says a steady stream of dollars started to pour in even before his polling numbers began to rise.

“We’ve had a great 24 hours,” Santorum told CBS News in an interview. “My guess is we’ve raised—I haven’t heard exactly, but my guess is we’re in around a half-million dollars since [Tuesday] morning. So we’ve had a good day and we’ve had a good couple of weeks, you know, finishing in the teens in Nevada and Florida and yet, our fundraising was increasing as our numbers were not in those two states.

“And I think that gave us the impression that we could do well on Tuesday and we put a lot of time and energy into those three states. I’m not lying about that. We rolled the dice last night and obviously it paid off.”

Perhaps donors sensed the impending victories in the middle of the country.

Rick Santorum’s Super PAC — the Red, White and Blue Fund — had a good day, too:

“We’ve been working at a speed faster than any other day the super PAC has seen in this election season,” Stuart Roy, a political advisor to the Red White and Blue Fund, wrote in an email to the Los Angeles Times/Tribune Washington Bureau. “We haven’t made a single fundraising call today because potential donors have been the ones calling us.” …

Roy said the incoming resources would allow the super PAC to do voter advocacy and polling in states it had not originally planned to target.

“The final decisions haven’t yet been made on television ad placement but we are taking a hard look at states that may have previously been viewed as completely uphill…both ways,” Roy wrote. “For instance, a couple of the Southern states are in play since [Mitt] Romney’s Northeastern politics don’t play well there.  And although [Newt] Gingrich may look a bit like Paula Deen, politically he’s no Southerner.”

My take?  People have been looking for the anti-Romney.  Many apparently believe that they have found it in Santorum.  I take this as a sign that many Conservatives are put off by Romney, his history, his Alinsky-styled campaign, and the fact that he is the favorite of the MSM and the GOP establishment.

Also, the grudge match between Obama and the Catholic Church may be galvanizing Social Conservatives, and Santorum would be the primary beneficiary of that sudden increase in interest.  Given Romney’s history of supporting abortion rights, Santorum might be poised to take it to the establishment’s choice.  The real question is if Santorum can withstand the Romney smear machine.  Santorum hasn’t the baggage that Gingrich carries, so team RINO will be hard pressed to invent some allegations to use against him.  That won’t stop them from trying, however.

As for Newt Gingrich, he did not fare well.  Several weeks ago, he suggested that all other candidates quite the campaign, and let him take on Romney.   After Tuesday, that suggestion seems most premature.

Thinking realistically, Santorum didn’t gain much, at least in terms of delegates, however, he did show that Romney can be beaten convincingly, and that this show isn’t over.  Send the fat lady backstage folks, this is just getting started.
