American Power

Have you been over to visit the Reaganite Republican lately? Well, if you haven’t, you have some catching up to do. RR’s been fired up of late and has a couple of must read articles worthy of your time.

Monday he sounded the Horn of Helm Hammerhand to rouse the napping TEA Partiers to vigilance in a post titled:

Devious Lame-Duck Dems: This is Why Companies Don’t Allow Fired Employees to Stay Another Month to Pilfer and Sabotage

As legislators return to the Hill today, don’t let the reported “slow start” to the congressional lame duck session lull you into complacency… rather expect the worst and keep your guard up for a sharp left-hook at anytime over the coming weeks.

Please do read the whole thing as it lays out all sorts of nastiness they are planning for what just might be the lamest session of congress evah.

Earlier, RR asked this pertinent question:

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot: WHY is Marco Rubio Backing John Cornyn for NRSC Chair…?

That’s right… the same John Cornyn that tried -and failed- to screw-over Rubio in Florida by putting-in the fix for Sunkist Crist is now running unopposed... and Marco Rubio reportedly supporting his bid to remain NRSC Chairman!

The unfortunate conclusion of which was also covered vigorously at The Other McCain.

Lately, RR piqued my interest with articles discussing backwoods inventive auto repair and international arms and drug smuggling.

In other news, over at American Power, Prof. Douglas points us to another illegal immigrant doing a job an American citizen just won’t do: Fresno State Student Body President.

He also reports that Nancy got the job.

And now for something completely different. A pseudo-man, a myth and an obsession with Sarah Palin’s Uterus. Good times.

Speaking of Sarah Palin and obsessions, Tina Fey Awarded First Douche Nozzle Prize.

One more thing.

Tell your Senators to pass the Tester-Hagan Amendment and the Manager’s Amendment to protect family farmers! – Do it now.

Have a nice evening.

First, a poll question: Does anyone use Google reader anymore? I’ve switched to one called Feedly, which pulls sources from Blogger Following, Twitter and Facebook. It’s been working pretty well, but I’m wondering, what do you guys use?

What I’m reading this morning:

Villainous Company has the totals from the Valour-IT campaign. Yea Marines! Second year in a row! OOH RAH!

Iowahawk places himself on double secret suspended probation. Or something. And in the process, gets his-self an Instalanche! Congrats dood. Now if you could just un-re-dis-suspend yourself, you’ll be alright. Or at least as close as you were to alright before this whole unfortunate business started.

Stacy McCain posts a great Herman Cain video at the end of an equally excellent article: ‘The Demagogic Bloggers on the Right’

Chris W. from My Thoughts on Freedom just published an article at the Tenth Amendment Center: Starving Leviathan: Federal Tax Escrow Accounts

Featured blog, American Power has a Katy Perry Victoria’s Secret preview plus Marxists, and Obama , but I repeat myself.

In a very manly, brotherly way, of course.

That’s all I’ve got time for now. Will possibly update later as I find the best of the right-o-sphere. Leave a suggestion in the comments, if you like.

Oh, and don’t forget the question: What RSS reader do you use?

Did Harry Reid steal the Nevada election from Sharron Angle?

This may be one instance where George Soros’ Secretary of State Project worked as planned.

From Right Pundits:

[Secretary of State Ross] Miller is a life-long partisan Democrat operative in the state, the legacy son of former Democratic governor Bob Miller. He interned in the Clinton White House after obtaining a law degree from Loyola Marymount University. At age 30 he is also the youngest Secretary of State in Nevada’s history and apparently in way over his head.None of that would matter if he would only take an active role in voter fraud claims by Republicans, but instead Miller appears to be hiding behind his own bureaucracy.

Despite these widespread reports in the news about Nevada voting machines miraculously selecting Harry Reid’s name in a case of divine intervention, Miller’s response to the explosive Nevada election fraud allegations is that nobody bothered to file a formal complaint with the election’s division so he is not going to investigate it! He seems offended that a resident would instead take her case to the news media. Miller knows, of course, that pretty much nobody knows how to file election fraud complaints in a state. The voters are doing the natural thing by talking to the media.

The allegations of voter fraud, tampering and intimidation by Harry Reid’s campaign continue to pile up. So strange was Reid’s comeback after early voting showed a GOP advantage, The Christian Science Monitor labeled his victory a Houdini act.

This robot is absolutely *blsht* positive that the Senator did everything within his *hack*  power to keep his staffers and his son, Rory Reid, who is the *crrpt* Clarke County Commissioner where the vote stealing allegations took place, on the straight and *ahem* narrow, but the questions remain and accumulate, unanswered.

Strange: Election night, an as yet unexplained power outage occurred at one Las Vegas polling location. How convenient.

Side note: Also in question to me is the timing of Obama’s highly overrated, exorbitantly expensive, overseas trip in the wake of this election. Could it possibly be a bit of distraction from the possibility of voter fraud? The three-card-monte is always in play, it seems, with these people.

In another article, Elizabeth Crum, reporting for the National Review Online unearthed “disturbing” evidence of “collusion,” coercion and harassment of Harrah’s employees to conjure votes for embattled Senator Reid against the TEA Party candidate Sharron Angle. (H/T Am-Pow)

The accusations stem from a series of emails and spreadsheets that NRO obtained which offer damning evidence against Harry Reid’s staff, and possibly point to Reid’s personal  involvement in the scandal, with some in Harrah’s upper management being willing accomplices to the stealing of the election through voter/employee intimidation.

Reports Crum:

The stepped-up effort began Wednesday when a Reid staffer sent an email pleading for help to Harrah’s top lobbyist, Jan Jones. Soon after, Marybel Batjer, Harrah’s vice president of public policy and communications, distributed that plea via email to executives throughout the company.

Later in the article, the employee who forwarded the emails said:

“We were asked to talk to people individually to find out why they had not yet voted and to fill in these spreadsheets explaining why,” the employee said. “I did not feel comfortable doing that.”

“It put me in a very awkward position,” the employee added, saying the level of coordination between Harrah’s upper management, the culinary union, and the Reid campaign was “disgusting.”

A spokesman with the Federal Election Commission declined to comment on the case, but encourages anyone who feels that an election-law violation has occurred to file a complaint with the commission.

I wonder how many complaints have been filed already.

BigFurHat @ iOTW simply states: Harry Reid Broke The Law – Plain and Simple.

Here’s hoping someone with enough power to combat the Reid machine can get to the bottom of these serious anti-American accusations. One thing’s for sure, Eric Holder and the Federal justice system are going to turn a blind eye unless more evidence surfaces.

2010 Voter Fraud?

Somewhere on America’s left coast, behind the lines, stands one of the last bastions of hope for Conservative principles in California. A refuge for lovers of liberty who find themselves stuck in a beautiful landscape that hypnotizes all but the strong minded, luring them into a deadly world of Socialist thought that sucks the pride of self reliance from their minds and clouds it with the promise of unearned entitlements. That Fortress of Freedom is the blog American Power, and the luminary of that site is Professor Donald Douglas.

I’m often amazed at the tenacity required to produce the volume of quality articles and insightful commentary published by Prof. Douglas. Articles that are surely produced from an unquenchable love of America’s founding principles and a fire that grows brighter and stronger when fueled by the inane and asinine arguments of the liberal and socialistic pseudo-elites we battle today.

Professor Douglas, I’m certainly thankful you can withstand what must be a daily onslaught of leftist dogma evidenced in California these last couple of decades. Thank you for fighting against it with reason, truth and humor.

We need battalions of such educators in our schools to teach the truth of American exceptionalism.

Whatever you think of him, these facts are undeniable; the man behind American Power Blog is a tireless defender of freedom, of the virtues of liberty and a true American patriot. Which is why I’ve chosen American Power as the Robot’s latest Featured Blog.

Like your humble robot, Prof. Douglas is a music lover as well and possesses a diverse taste that spans the spectrum from punk rock to rap and hip-hop to pop and classic rock. I’ve found several new bands from visits to American Power and been reminded of some I’d forgotten.

I must also admit to sharing his affinity for Gods most favored creatures. We need a break from the punditry every now and then and the lovely ladies featured on his site rival those to be found anywhere, be it here on this site, or the glitzy runways of New York.

Be sure to bookmark and blogroll American Power.

Happy Labor Day Weekend comrades!

Here’s a little roundup of great posts from the Robo-Reading List to help you through the next few days.

First, Carol of No Sheeples Here is participating in Project 2996, which for her part she honors the slain of 9/11/2001 with a tribute a day until Sept. 11. A very touching way to remember the heroes of that day who lost their lives. Carol’s blog has been featured blog this week, so please be sure to visit her site and let her know that an imaginary robot does indeed dream of electric sheep. Thank you.

As a side note, I’m considering changing the title of “Featured Blog” to “Honorary Android” or something close like “Android Army.” What do you think? Suggestions?

Next up is the blogosphere’s very own Stacy McCain, who truly earns the  title of “Roving Reporter” this week by traveling all the way to Alaska to cover some Republican primary or something. I think Joe Miller’s name came up at some point. While he was in the neighborhood, he stopped in to check on the Palin family.

As Red said, “How freaking cool is this?”

Speaking of my favorite redhead, she and the crew of Corndog are in the process of making the move to Texas and could use a little help for the U-Haul. Drop by over there and throw a couple of bucks in the tip jar.

So, one half of The Other McCain is off playing world traveler, rubbing elbows and rattling the tip jar no doubt trying to get enough shoe leather funds for a ride home, while Smitty, the balder and sometimes bolder half is covering everything else it would seem. Some highlights:

Recovery Summer?

Delaware Castle?

NYC GZM?

Social Conservatism?

SOS: Sissypuss, Obama, And Skippy

Staying on the election theme, my Jersey buddy Russ, the constant campaigner has been working his arse off for another favorite of mine, Anna Little who is up against some huge opposition in the form of Frank Pallone. Russ exudes confidence in his post over at The Resistance:

I’m telling you right now, as you sit there, that this is the single biggest House electoral upset in history in the making.

Just a sample of what we’re up against:

  • 22-year hard progressive incumbent (proud author of PalloneCare and cap-and-trade)
  • $4 million warchest (the richest in the house)
  • 2 to 1 D to R demographic in the 6th District (34-17)
  • Ridiculously gerrymandered District intended solely to keep Frank Pallone in office (just look at it sometime)

But we’re gonna win.

Here’s a link to Anna’s donation page. It takes money to win these campaigns folks. Either we give now to the candidates who will fight the beast or the beast will take your money anyway to redistribute as they see fit. The choice is yours.

I must add that all of the above causes are ones I consider most worthy. I wouldn’t recommend a donation to someone I haven’t personally donated to myself.

Now for something more light-hearted, The Troglopundit attempts to overcome yesterday’s Eva Mendes hotness with a single Megan Fox pic. Weak, my friend, weak, but still hot!

Lance also asks a relevant question.

Little Miss Attila brings up a good point about Chuck Norris:

Of course, there’s the issue of whether we should be listening to a guy who loses his damn gun in every single movie he’s in . . .

Then again, he is Chuck Norris, why would he be carrying a gun if not to lose it for the plot line?

Ha! I just used “Chuck Norris” and “plot line” in the same sentence. Where’s my award?

Bluegar. ROTFL Cougar. Bluegar. Whatever, watch the vid.

How does one spell “Bluegar” anyway?

Ruby Slippers points us to Dallas, TX Representative Eddie Bernice Johnson’s apparent mis-allocation of funds to her own relatives and the poor job she puts forth in defense of her actions.

Since 2005 Johnson has awarded a total of 23 scholarships to family members.Johnson additionally awarded scholarships to 5 other students who did not meet the residency requirements specified by the nonprofit Congressional Black Caucus Foundation

Eddie Bernice Johnson is also pointed out on this blog’s Texas 11 page, which  highlights the 11 Texas Representatives who voted for Obamacare, but the main reason for that page is not just to highlight those Socialist scumbags but to call attention to their opponents. Eddie B. Johnson’s opponent is the most worthy Stephen Broden, a Constitutional Conservative who has been a featured guest on the Glenn Beck Show on several occasions and who I believe spoke at the Restoring Honor Rally in D.C. last weekend with Dr. Alveda King although I did not see that part personally.

Hmmm, I think I just found a nomination for next weeks Ten Buck Fridays poll. Steven Broden!

In keeping up the high standards of Rule 5 here at the Robot, and to augment what some other fine bloggers have already offered this week in the hotness category, such as EoP, TCL, Rebel 5, Theo Spark, WyBlog and POWIP plus a new find, Hell on Earth, and also to double down on my bid to be included in The Other McCain’s weekly Rule 5 Roundup, I’ve decided to continue my obsession -er- infatuation with all things Eva Mendes. Here are a few choice photos of the lovely lady for our enjoyment.

Happy Blog Day to ‘Bot…

Happy Blog Day to ‘Bot…

Happy Blog Day you drun-ken auto-ma-ton…

Happy Blog Day to ‘Bot.

*hic*

Thank you, thank you. You shouldn’t have. Really.

“Speech! Speech!”

Well, if you insist.

Blogspot

There once was a somewhat shy *cough* never outspoken *hack* designer/drummer *blech* who could no longer withhold his views from the world, or at least the few people outside his circle of friends who might listen to those opinions. He felt compelled to begin an online journal to hopefully spare some of his close friends from the verbal outrage at what was happening in America. Once started on that journal, it soon became a journey, to where no-one knows, but for now has been a source of developing friendships and personal edification that he will never forget or regret.

I, being he, have met some fine patriotic people online in the blogging community and have come in contact through their writings with many more whom I probably will never have the opportunity to meet. That is no fault of any one, it’s just an observance that the number of conservative bloggers is growing. This is a good thing. I love it.

Unlike Stacy McCain, of The Other McCain, I have no aspirations of taking over the entire blogosphere, though I certainly don’t hold it against him that he wishes to do so. More power to you Stacy. I simply want to add my voice to the many who are crying out that our government has been transformed from its original purpose and was/is being further transformed in an exponentially quicker pace into the monster our Founders warned us against. That fight still remains. To what end is a matter on which I pray daily. Can I get an Amen?

I’m happy you have all accepted my quirky, jerky, rambling attempts at humor and hopefully motivational or educational essays and rants. You really know how to make an abby-normal guy feel welcome. As Carol of No Sheeples Here likes to say, I’m proud to be standing guard over liberty with all of you.

Thinking on how to commemorate the first anniversary of my online life, I thought I might trace back and find a few highlights to share with you. A sort of naked baby pictures type of thing, except without the baby, or the naked.

OK, some will be babes, and some will be nearly naked.

Looking at the stat counter at the old site, I see the most popular post was a video found at iOwnTheWorld that is still the funniest takeoff of Babes in Toyland I’ve ever seen. iOwnTheWorld also gave the Robot a huge present on Christmas Day by linking their entire graphic to the Robot. I know they didn’t have to do that and was nearly glued to the site meter Christmas Day watching the hits come in. What a freaking nerd I am. 🙂

Thank You, iOwnTheWorld.

Speaking of babes, coming in a close second was a post titled Christina Hendricks vs Adriana Lima vs Megan Fox, which, now that I’ve linked it again here, all you babe watchers will hit it some more and possibly bump it past the other post. Sex does sell. I’ve learned this fact from Stacy McCain’s post on How to Get a Million Hits on Your Blog in Less Than a Year. Yes, folks, Rule 5 is alive and well at Mind-Numbed Robot, and is sitting on the porch, drinking a beer, watching the babes go by thankyouverymuch.

The third most popular post from the other site was a quickie from an email which happened to include some more hotness. It was picked up by The Dailey Gator and Bob Belvedere and was entitled License For Your House Included in Cap and Tax!

If I had to pick, the one post from the old site that gave me the most satisfaction was Reclaiming the American Spirit which was picked up and quoted from again by Bob, along with dozens of other bloggers who were shouting against the tyranny taking place in the form of Health Care Reform. I remember the pride I felt being included in the company of those proud patriots, knowing in my heart the love of freedom we all feel and the anger and desperation we all had at that very moment. I know we still do, but this is a happy day, right? RIGHT!?

The fourth most popular post from the old site was a few nice ladies holding flags. What could be so menacing? I felt like it was linked by damn near the entire blogiverse, including The Troglopundit, Obi’s Sister, The Daley Gator, The Other McCain, Fishersville Mike and American Power.

Almost everywhere that is, except Instapundit, as Lance noted in one of the more backhandedly selfish comments I’ve seen at the Robot:

Could somebody get this guy an Instalance, please? I could use the instaseconds.

Ha! That Troglopundit. What a card. Always hitching a ride on someone else’s train. But who am I to judge? It seems to be working for him. Maybe one day I’ll have the opportunity to buy my favorite unfrozen caveman a beer.

Dot Com…

The Robot moved to the new digs on April 26 this year. Four months ago. The old site had 9,400 unique visits according to Sitemeter at the time. I have no idea if that’s good, bad or what in the big scheme of things. Since the move the traffic has tripled and I have no doubt that it’s due to the help from my friends at The Resistance: Steve, Matt, Mike, Doug, Chris and the ever campaigning Russ. Not to mention my fellow Gulf Coast neighbors Jeffrey and Red. Thank you guys for the links and encouragement.

The top four posts on the new site so far are:

  1. Daisy Fuentes Pictures Day– for obvious reasons.
  2. Rule 5 Saturday – Julia Stiles – see above.
  3. Someone Said This Was Funny– someone on Stumbleupon loves this pic. Someone else on Stumbleupon hates this pic. I tell you what, Bub, I hate it too, but not because its defaming your favorite President.
  4. Dennis Prager Q & A At University of Denver– a great lesson. The great lesson? Certainly one of them.

My personal favorite posts from the past four months were the Robo-Love Experiments #1, #2 & #3. Of the 3 I like the third the best. They were a lot of fun and a challenge at the same time, even if, as Belvedere says, I need help with my naming conventions.

I’m over a thousand words now in what was going to be a quick “thank you for your support” post, and I’m sure I missed a bunch of folks who need a good thanking, including the frequent commenters like  Bunni, Opie and Georges.

If I missed you, please feel free to cajole your spouse, significant other or some bum on the street to give you a solid thanking for me, right smack on the backside, where you’ll remember it.

Thanks again for visiting the Robot. It’s been a memorable first year. I’m proud to be among you who will stand up and say No More!

Tomorrow it’s back to the trenches for me. In the mean time, show some Robo-Love and BUY A FREAKIN’ T-SHIRT!

Or, as Stacy and Smitty like to say, HIT THE TIP JAR!

Cheers! ~ ‘Bot

UPDATE:

Thanks to Chris Muir for the mighty DayByDay mention. You Rawk!


UPDATE II:

I’ve added Chris’s strip featuring the ‘bot and while I’m here I wanted to mention a few other bloggers who have helped your humble host maintain his sanity while we watch with horror and still struggle against the Dem-olition of our country.

Oh, and look what Bob gave me, gee, just what I always wanted. Kari Byron portraying Freddie Kruger.

Thanks Bob. I’ll cherish her as long as I live, which may not be long. This is like owning a toy that can’t be toyed with. Something tells me your female offspring are to be feared, my friend.

That contraption on her hand says she’ll do the popping of these balloons, don’t you know.

The symbolism here is too deep for my circuitry. I feel a few transistors going into overload.

Must. Stop. Staring. At. Kari.

OK, enough update. My boss is coming. Shhhh. Kari, watch out with those pointy things already! Shh!

It’s been a little while since I’ve done a link fest. Really not sure I’ve done any at all since the trilogy of Robo-Love Experiments #1, #2 & #3 that turned out to be a big hit with my friends in the blogosphere. Happy you guys liked them.

This one however will be a bit simpler and just offer a sincere thank you to all the blogs that have linked your humble ‘bot in the past month or so.

Thank You Very Much!
