Morning Quote

October 15, 2009

From the comments in a Daily Telegraph article:

“How is it that when Righties quote Lefties, they have video, audio, and notarized confirmation from the Pope, but when Lefties ‘quote’ Righties, they have Wiki entries contributed by ‘Cobra’?”

Presidential Comparisons

July 5, 2009

Liberal democrat reporter Helen Thomas say Barack Hussein Obama is worse than Nixon in his attempts to control the press.

Our Dear Leader is also out to prove that he wants to be worse than Jimmy Carter.

The left is fanning the fires of racism

February 20, 2009

…even if they have to lie to do it.
Case in point, the HuffPo using a doctored video to accuse Fox News of racism.

This raises the question, Why can’t the left make their arguments with the truth?

Why are leftists so eager to raise the specter of racism?

Perhaps it is because they plan on using it to attack their foes regardless of factual arguments opponents of socialism.

Update: Huffpo has posted a retraction, admitting the video they quoted was a fake.

Liberals have trouble with actual facts

August 31, 2008

Ann Althouse points out that liberal columnist Maureen Dowd got quite a number of simple facts wrong

If Quayle was a “fun, bantamweight cheerleader from the West,” then Obama must be too. Illinois — for the geographically challenged — is one notch west of Indiana. And Quayle was a second term Senator when he was picked for VP in 1988 And he’d been in Congress since 1976.

If the Brady Anti-Civil Rights folks told the truth…

June 16, 2008

…they wouldn’t have a case. The facts are against the anti-Civil/Human Rights Victim Disarmament crowd.

Alphecca has yet another example of this.
Even the BATF is calling them on fudging the numbers in order to lie to the American public.

American Energy

May 28, 2008

By way of TigerHawk is this article about America and Energy:

Candidate Obama, like so many lefties, seems to believe anything bad about the United States, without even submitting it to critical thinking. He said on May 19, 2008, for example, that 3% of the world’s population (i.e., in his calculation, the United States) accounts for 25% of the greenhouse gases put into the atmosphere. In the 1970s, the lefties used to talk about 6% of the world’s population using 25% of the world’s energy. Even before Obama, they were blaming America first.

…the United States has invented nearly 100% of what the modern world means by “energy.” And it has helped the rest of the world to use 75%.

Why can’t the other peoples of the world learn how to discover, invent, and develop new kinds of energy? Why must the whole burden be placed upon the people of the United States?

TigerHawk sums up the leftist mindset well.

In the end this is just another variant on the anti-Americanism of people who assume that the world’s wealth was found in the ground or given to us by Allah or extracted from the stolen labor of working people. If you believe — as I do — that wealth is the surest expression of human creativity, then you also believe that America’s great inventions spring from our system, not the natural resources with which we have been endowed or the winnings of imperialism. But most peoples of the world (including American leftists) do not understand this — which is why they do not invent anything important — and instead view American wealth as if it were looted, rather than created. Hey, if I thought America was rich from theft rather than creativity, I’d feel guilty too.

Mean while, in Columbia

March 27, 2008

By way of Ace is this bit of news:
Colombia Seizes 66 Pounds of Uranium from FARC Narcoterrorists

Colombia said it seized at least 66 pounds (30 kg) of uranium from the country’s biggest left-wing rebel group on Wednesday, the first time radioactive material has been linked to the four-decade-old guerrilla war.

The uranium was found in a rural area long considered a Marxist guerrilla stronghold just south of the capital Bogota.

It is being examined by government experts, the defense ministry said in a statement, although it did not say where the material came from or what it could be used for.

An expert on Colombia’s cocaine-fueled conflict said rebels of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, do not have the facilities needed to make a bomb with uranium.

“This appears to have been part of a black market operation that the guerrillas were trying to use to make money,” said Pablo Casas, an analyst at Bogota think-tank Security and Democracy.

“This is new for Colombia and could bring the FARC into the major leagues of black market terrorist transactions,” he said.

Sad, but true

March 18, 2008

Dr. Jerry Pournelle reviews Jonah Goldberg’s book Liberal Fascism.

Goldberg’s book is an anomaly: serious students of political science shouldn’t find anything here they didn’t already know. Alas, I had to say ‘shouldn’t’, because a very great number of people who consider themselves serious students of political science will be shocked and astonished.

At least the leftists in Berkeley are honest about hating America

March 13, 2008

Via Little Green Footballs comes this gem from the Berkeley Daily Planet (where they don’t believe in “Truth, Justice, and the American Way“)

We need to expose that those in the U.S. military are trained to be part of a “killing machine.” While not every member of the military is an individual murderer, they are all part of a system that commits war crimes, including aggressive wars, massacres, rape, and other crimes against humanity, all in the service of U.S. imperialism. The bottom line is that even if these people are relatives or friends, you can not support the troops without also supporting the objective role that these troops play in the imperialist system.

March 10, 2008

Far left socialist dictator Hugo Chavez has allies in the American Congress.
It’s not surprising that they are democrats.
