Not Even If Hell Freezes Over

No way, no how, will I ever vote for TrumBozo the Clown. He’s a closet liberal, self-centered publicity whore lunatic, who’s dragging down the Republican brand and, unbelievably, making Obama look sympathetic and re electable by comparison. The freakish asshole probably voted for Obama last time.

The Right Bites Trump

The New York Daily News calls Donald Trump a clown. The Obama White House dismisses him as “a sideshow” who has, according to presidential adviser David Plouffe, “zero chance of being hired by the American people.”

This is insane and ridiculous, TrumBozo the Clown gives loose cannons a bad name. Is it any wonder the elite liberal media is in love with TrmBozo and helping him suck all the oxygen out of the election coverage? It’s embarrassing, why are Republicans letting the Obama voting media try and choose our Presidential candidate, again? Remember media darling McCain? Republicans need to stuff TrumBozo back under his rock before he does irreparable harm to the Republican 2012 election chances and ensures an Obama reelection.

/the day TrumBozo forgets his hair spray, that double comb over will smother him in his sleep

Yes They Can, But No They Shouldn’t

At first, Obama confidently wades into the Ground Zero mosque controversy with carefully scripted remarks to a Muslim audience.

And then, the next day, after seeing the gap down in his approval poll numbers, Obama and his administration frantically tried to walk back his initial comments.

As usual, Charles Krauthammer nails it.

Sacrilege at Ground Zero

Location matters. Especially this location. Ground Zero is the site of the greatest mass murder in American history — perpetrated by Muslims of a particular Islamist orthodoxy in whose cause they died and in whose name they killed.

Of course that strain represents only a minority of Muslims. Islam is no more intrinsically Islamist than present-day Germany is Nazi — yet despite contemporary Germany’s innocence, no German of goodwill would even think of proposing a German cultural center at, say, Treblinka.

Which makes you wonder about the goodwill behind Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf’s proposal. This is a man who has called U.S. policy “an accessory to the crime” of 9/11 and, when recently asked whether Hamas is a terrorist organization, replied, “I’m not a politician. . . . The issue of terrorism is a very complex question.”

America is a free country where you can build whatever you want — but not anywhere. That’s why we have zoning laws. No liquor store near a school, no strip malls where they offend local sensibilities, and, if your house doesn’t meet community architectural codes, you cannot build at all.

These restrictions are for reasons of aesthetics. Others are for more profound reasons of common decency and respect for the sacred. No commercial tower over Gettysburg, no convent at Auschwitz — and no mosque at Ground Zero.

Build it anywhere but there.

Read the whole thing.

Sure, Feisal Abdul Rauf and his mysterious backers have ever legal right to build a mosque near Ground Zero, but why would they want to? If their goal is a gesture of interfaith goodwill, you can clearly tell from the reaction that that excuse isn’t going to even remotely fly. So why are they, so far, insisting on building a mosque at this particular location? It’s because building a mosque this close to Ground Zero is, straight up, a monument to the Islamic victory on 9/11, in your face infidels! Don’t believe that? Google Dar al-Islam/Dar al-Harb.

/and, if the Islamists insist on pressing forward with this inflammatory provocation, big heaping piles of shame on any New York union worker who lifts one finger to help further this travesty along

Selective Meddle For Communist Dictators

Obama won’t meddle in Iran, while their government is shooting people in the streets.

But hey, when it comes to Honduras, he jumps right in . . .

Obama Calls for Return of Honduran President

U.S. President Barack Obama says the removal of Honduran President Manuel Zelaya was illegal and sets a bad precedent for the region. Mr. Obama spoke after a White House meeting with Colombian President Alvaro Uribe.

President Obama says the ouster of President Zelaya by the Honduran military must be reversed.

“We believe that the coup was not legal and that President Zelaya remains the President of Honduras – the democratically elected president there,” said President Obama.

Mr. Obama says the United States is joining with others, including the Organization of American States, demanding that President Zelaya be reinstated. He says there is great concern throughout the region about the situation in Honduras.

An illegal coup, really? Let’s see if we can figure out what’s going on here.

Ousted leader plans return to Honduras

Ousted President Manuel Zelaya of Honduras continued to build support yesterday for his return home, but the country’s de facto rulers said he would be arrested the minute he set foot on national territory.

As Zelaya addressed a supportive UN audience in New York, Hondurans in Tegucigalpa were demonstrating against and, in smaller numbers, in favor of the deposed leftist leader. Zelaya was flown to Costa Rica in exile early Sunday after soldiers removed him from his home.

Honduran Attorney General Luis Alberto Rubi, who clashed frequently with Zelaya, said arrest warrants had been issued accusing Zelaya of 18 crimes, including treason and abuse of authority. Rubi said authorities would ask Interpol to detain Zelaya, who has said he plans to return to Honduras tomorrow with a delegation of regional heads of state and other officials.

“The justice tribunals of my country have issued orders to capture [Zelaya] because he broke laws,’’ said Roberto Micheletti, the former head of Congress who legislators chose to replace Zelaya after the army deposed him.

In Washington, where the Obama administration has joined regional leaders in condemning the coup, US officials said yesterday they had severed contacts with the Honduran military, with which they maintained close ties for decades. The United States also will consider cutting off hundreds of millions of dollars in aid, officials said. To do so requires the administration to formally label Zelaya’s ouster a military coup.

In Tegucigalpa, the capital, several thousand opponents of Zelaya filled a downtown square waving blue-and-white Honduran flags and denouncing Zelaya’s ties to Latin leftists such as Venezuela’s Hugo Chávez.

Repeatedly invoking God and fatherland, Micheletti thanked his followers “united here to protect democracy’’ and pledged to go ahead with presidential elections scheduled for the end of November.

He clasped the hand of General Romeo Vásquez, the army chief who Zelaya had tried to fire, and raised their arms overhead in a sign of victory. Micheletti said army officers were the heroes of the moment for having seized Zelaya from his bedroom Sunday morning and bundled him off into exile, still in his pajamas.

“It wasn’t a coup!’’ the crowd chanted. “Democracy, yes! Communism, no!’’

Most of the wrath seemed directed more at Chávez than at Zelaya. Chávez is seen as a heavy-handed bully by many, and his growing alliance with Zelaya made many Hondurans fear their country was being pulled to the radical left.

So, under international pressure, Zelaya was supposed to gloriously waltz back into power yesterday. Hold the phone, not so fast, the Obama talking points are evolving.

US says Zelaya wise not to return yet to Honduras

Ousted Honduras President Manuel Zelaya made a “wise” decision to postpone his return to his country, a senior Obama administration official said on Wednesday.

The official said it was important that the Organization of American States be given an opportunity to attempt to find a diplomatic solution to the problem in Honduras before Zelaya tries to return to his country.

But wait, there’s more.

Zelaya accused of drug ties

The regime that ousted Manuel Zelaya in Honduras claimed Tuesday that the deposed president allowed tons of cocaine to be flown into the Central American country on its way to the United States.

“Every night, three or four Venezuelan-registered planes land without the permission of appropriate authorities and bring thousands of pounds … and packages of money that are the fruit of drug trafficking,” its foreign minister, Enrique Ortez, told CNN en Espanol.

“We have proof of all of this. Neighboring governments have it. The DEA has it,” he added.
