Right Klik is back from some Capitalist efforts and has once again done some fine legwork putting together the Conservative Candidate lineup for your information and edification. I’ve posted the new poll on the sidebar as well.

Right Klik also posted a telling compilation of video moments from the last few months which tells the story of why it is so important for everyone to get educated and involved in the Conservative movement.

We must oust the Democrat and RINO Republican aristocrats who are trampling our Constitution and have been doing so for the last hundred years or more. It’s not going to be easy, but it is necessary if we are to remain a free America. Voting for true Conservatives is the only way to achieve this goal within the framework of our system of government. To remain on the path we’ve been on is a road to serfdom.

The benefit went great. We served about 800 plates of bar-b-que and including the auction, raffle and donations we raised over 14,000 dollars to help a family in need.

One of the local unions allowed us the use of their trailered bbq pit. Here it is yesterday morning at seven just after being loaded up with brisket, sausage and boudain.  It stayed cooking until about six that evening. Whew! What a day.

Lots of friends and family on hand to help and there was a huge outpouring of support from the community. Many thanks to everyone involved. You guys are the best!

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I hear my couch calling.

My new favorite song.

The TBF poll has closed and Delia Lopez, from Oregon’s District 3 pulled out a victory. I’ve just made my donation and plan to make another to one of my favorite candidates from Texas, Mr. John Faulk as soon as I finish this post.

There are a lot of good conservative candidates out there who are preaching constitutional principles and we all need to support them as much as we can. Please, let me urge you to make a donation to Delia Lopez to help her combat the rights stealing monstrosity that our government has become.

More on Delia Lopez for Congress.

Donate to the campaign to elect Delia Lopez.

There’s a lion looking at you from the right sidebar. Washington Rebel a great source of conservative thought. Click the lion!

On a programming note, I’m going to be a sporadic poster this weekend due to working a local benefit Saturday. I’ll be manning the bar-b-que pit for a good cause and may or may not have the time or energy for a lot of posting. Not one to think ahead too much and put things in ye olde posting que you see.

Oh, and BTW, Have you voted in the TBF poll yet? Please consider a vote for John Faulk, who is running against the train wreck socialist that is Congresswomaaaaaan Queen Sheila Jackson Lee.

That is all. Have a great nite.

Absolutely nothing.

With the exception of defending a country’s sovereignty or a people’s way of life or pushing back a tyrant or two here and there.
Yes, I agree, war is a nasty business. If only the dictators and tyrants of the world would let others live in freedom and not force folks to act in defiance of their oppressors.

Other than that, I’m a rainbow and unicorn kind of robot.

Great song though.
Good God Y’all!

George Will, in Jerusalem for the Washington Post, quotes Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu:

Today’s Middle East, he says, reflects two developments. One is the rise of Iran and militant Islam since the 1979 revolution, which led to al-Qaeda, Hamas and Hezbollah. The other development is the multiplying threat of missile warfare.

Now Israel faces a third threat, the campaign to delegitimize it in order to extinguish its capacity for self-defense. After two uniquely perilous millennia for Jews, the creation of Israel meant, Netanyahu says, “the capacity for self-defense restored to the Jewish people.” But note, he says, the reflexive worldwide chorus of condemnation when Israel responded with force to rocket barrages from Gaza and from southern Lebanon. There is, he believes, a crystallizing consensus that “Israel is not allowed to exercise self-defense.”

And yesterday, former US Envoy to the UN, John Bolton said Israel has just a few days to act before Iran begins inserting fuel rods into it’s newly built nuke-you-lar reactor.

Israel has only mere days to launch an attack on Iran’s Bushehr nuclear reactor if Russia makes good on its plan to deliver fuel there this weekend, former US ambassador to the UN John Bolton warned Tuesday.

He said that once Russia has loaded the fuel into the reactor — slated for Saturday – Israel would no longer be willing to strike for fear of triggering widespread radiation in an attack.

Iran in effect is hiding behind human shields while it continues to arm itself with nuclear capabilities:

Iran, for its part, dismissed talk of a possible Israel strike.

On Tuesday, Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast was quoted as saying that “these threats of attacks had become repetitive and lost their meaning.” He also reportedly told correspondents in Tehran, “According to international law, installations which have real fuel cannot be attacked because of the humanitarian consequences.”

The rhetoric comes as the US increased sanctions on Iran as part of its ongoing efforts to ratchet up pressure on Tehran.

On Tuesday the US Treasury announced dozens of additional names of Iranian banks and individuals that fall under sanctions law.

So, while the Iranians continue to ratchet up their ability to attack our Israeli allies, our President and State department continue to run a racket of sanctions and weak diplomacy designed to look the other way while Israel is forced to defend itself alone.

Question:

Should we strike Iranian nuclear facilities before they load fuel into their reactor or complete their ability to enrich weapons grade plutonium?

Should Israel?

I believe we should and if we don’t strike first, we should at the very least provide backing forces to Israel when they do so. A nuclear Iran would be more emboldened to act out against our Israeli allies, just as any of the lesser factions surrounding them because of Iran’s implied nuclear umbrella of protection. We cannot allow this scenario to develop.

Will President Obama see the issue this way?

I’d doubt he has a pair. In fact, his previous actions suggest that he’ll use an Israeli strike as a reason to sanction or condemn Israel.

That would be a tragedy of unthinkable proportions.

is being hosted by Monsignor Robert (Bob) Belvedere this week, with a bit of a lemon/lime twist.

Bob asks a few key questions and the Reaganite Republican is ready Freddy with the answer.

Don’t blame me if the RR link doesn’t divulge the information immediately.

As a matter of fact, don’t even go there unless you hit Bob’s site first, or forever be labeled a cheater…

What!? You did?

I bet you don’t mind spoiling the end of a movie for the rest of us do you?

Liberal!

Socialist!

Zombie!

You should be ashamed, but I know you have none.

and those victims would be:

Jobs, in Port Arthur, Texas.

According to a report in the Houston Chronicle, Obama’s EPA has decided:

A proposed pipeline that would ferry Canadian crude oil to Texas refineries has run afoul of the recharged federal push to protect minorities and the poor from an overburden of pollution.

More like protecting them from the overburden of a job.

As noted in the same article, Port Arthur has one of the highest unemployment rates in Texas despite the dense allotment of refineries and chemical plants located in the area.

As to the EPA decision I have to speculate the Port Arthur City Council must not have been “consulted” when the powers that be made their decision. Then again, maybe they were, those council members might have asked for a little too many carbon credits or petroleum perks for the regime’s sensibilities. Again, I’m just speculating here though. I’m sure the EPA and the city truly have the *cough* best *hack* interest *barf* of all those minority residents at heart.

I can see how not being able to feed your family without a government handout is much better than earning a decent wage and providing for your own. A sense of pride and self worth is always a negative thing when compared to the usefulness of a dependent, especially when attempting to sell some new government run entitlement.

Port Arthur and Jefferson County in general have been a Democrat stronghold in Texas for years. Why the Obama regime would chose to punish a town with a large minority population just because of their race is beyond the computing ability of this robot. It surely can’t be because of their voting record.

I think we are about to see first-hand how the term “Environmental Justice” will become another form of discrimination, just another package with a different name.

I also think it’s fair to point out that as much as Obama and his cronies point the racial finger at the TEA Party with no evidence to back up their accusations, this is a true case of admitted discrimination against his own race. Oh, but wait, maybe it’s his white half that he will attempt to blame this one on.

Then again, Socialism knows no race except in the best ways to be derisive and divisive to stir the petty differences as this president does. To share the wealth in this man’s case means to spread the misery. It’s truly a shame that it’s so easy to do with a complicit Congress.

I used to be one on the sidelines. One could have labeled me liberal in that I didn’t understand the thoughts and feelings that stirred me deeply were Conservative and Libertarian in nature and ignored them in my debauchery. As time passed I worked my day job and played music with a band of Pure Liberals, these were people who actually believed they were not taxed enough and that government was the answer to any and all problems, even and especially the ones it caused. I instinctively understood that my beliefs were wholly different, that self reliance and true liberty was not a part of their ideology. They spoke of something to which I could not ascribe.

Thus began a transformation. I began to realize that, while I may not be college educated as my band-mates were, one of them in fact being a professor and holding a doctorate, that I still could not agree, in fact must disagree, with the viewpoints espoused by my musical brethren. I began to read and educate myself as to the beginnings of our country and why the Founders chose the method of our governance, how the Constitution is not a “living, breathing” document, that some would have us believe can be interpreted as an activist judge or corrupt city council sees fit. Our system of government is not a Democracy but a Constitutional Republic that must be defended each and every day by the very people who desire to live under it’s divinely inspired protection.

Then I began to discover how blind most people really are to their Federal Government and how little it is allowed Constitutionally, to do to them.

Around this time I discovered “the blogs,” some liberal, some conservative or libertarian, and many of whom I still read to this day, one of which is the featured blog of the week.

You see…

Once upon a time there was a man who disparaged his government and ridiculed their mismanagement in seclusion or in beer joints and pubs across the southeastern side of Texas with relatively little fanfare. While his rantings and ravings didn’t slow in tenacity or decrease in venom, he started to find a need for a forum of greater magnitude to vent his frustration because he knew with more and more certainty as time passed that if he and many others did not shout and scream and pitch a hissy fit full of logic and reasoning in combination with the wild-eyed passion for God and Country and Freedom, that the objects of those loves would soon be gone.

One of the reasons this man chose to embark on the journal you now read was a website called Washington Rebel.

The contributors to Washington Rebel know these things with every fiber of their being; and when you visit The Reb, you will find a fearlessness of thought that quickens the heart and bolsters the spirit. As one who is in need of such things every now and again, I truly appreciate their hard work and bodacious attitude.

Now that you know a part of my story. I would encourage you to partake in some Rebel goodness for yourself, but be aware, they of the Reb fear not to speak their minds with some essay of assault on the weak minded or to assail you with the beauty of Gods female creation.

God Bless the Reb.

The new TBF poll is up and running in the right sidebar. I’m a bit late in posting but better late than never, as they say. Be sure to cast your vote for whomever you feel is the most deserving for a TBF wave of donations.

Also, keep in mind that John Faulk is once again included in the poll. Mr. Faulk, in case you aren’t aware, is running against the infamous Queen Sheila Jackson Lee in Texas District 18, so right away you know where this Texan robot’s vote will go.

Hmmm, come to think of it, maybe the robot’s tin head could use a ten gallon hat…

I’ll have to ponder on that accessory.

Good luck to all the worthy candidates!
