It’s come to this. Obama has exhausted all options short of apologetically bowing to Osama bin Laden  himself. (Oh, he did? Never mind.) So exhausted are our options he must now call on the only unused item in the arsenal and he’s chosen the blogosphere’s very own Smitty to wield it.

The Troglopundit honors Smitty with his own neolithic version of a send off. Careful following the link. Be sure to place any beverages on a flat surface. Wouldn’t want to ruin any keyboards.

No Runny Eggs has posted his own, along with Steve Burri and No Sheeples Here.

UPDATE: YankeePhil chimes in.

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.

Little Miss Attila revamped her site, without my permission! (Not that she needed it.) Spiffy!

Reaganite Republican has a great aggregation of his own.

I love Mark Levin.

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?

Right Change/Politizoid is out with their latest outstanding video.

Here’s the set up:

Based on Apple’s 1984 MAC commercial that marked a new era in computers, and based on the George Orwell book 1984, RightChange introduces our closing argument on the Obama Administration and the 111th Congress for the 2010 Midterm Cycle. This is also the Kick-off for the 2012 Presidential Cycle for RightChange. The New Politizoid “1984 – Big Brother” may be our best yet! “Vote Different.”

Cast: Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, George Soros, Maxine Waters, Moveon.org and Louis Farrakhan in their own words. Yes. These are their actual words.

For previous Right Change videos, a good start would be No Sheeples Here.

UPDATE: One-Thousand Progressives, according to the PSN Letter to Obama Supporting Obamacare.

Our American society has never seen the level of corruption in evidence today. It’s as if some mind controlling parasites have infested and infiltrated every nook and cranny of our system. The deeper you go down the proverbial rabbit hole, the more tentacles you find. Across borders, oceans and economic systems it reaches to control your every movement and very existence. As an example, if you were to expound and expand on Obama, Pelosi and Reid’s new healthcare plan, they would wish to grant or deny even your right to exist, as evidenced by our federal government’s obsession with killing babies. Do any of you trust your government to the point of giving them control, Chairman Mao like, over the number of children you can have? Rest assured that a government that funds elective abortions of its citizens would jump at the chance to dictate your ability to procreate at all. That type of tyranny is one that would grant such rights by your political party affiliation or what amount of tribute you bring to their throne.

If you believe, as I do, that the Progressive/Socialist/Communist agenda is at its heart, an evil one, then you must also conclude that this movement must be stopped.

Enter the Progressive States Network. Ever heard of them?

The PSN is a network of Progressive organizations that share Obama’s goal of the “fundamental transformation of America.”

I’ve seen what that transformation looks like and I don’t like it.

How does it work?

Their plan is to introduce Progressive/Socialist legislation at the State and local levels in order to gain a foothold on those issues at the national level both in the media and in the federal legislature. In the process, they are grooming candidates for national office.

A primer:

Getting To Know Your Michigan Candidates

The Progressive States Network: What you need to know

Progressive States Network – Immigration

Progressive States Network: Distorting the Electoral Process?

The Progressive States Network: Undermining Liberty one State at a Time

The Progressive States Network: Exploiting the Crisis that Progressives Caused?

Progressive States Network: National Popular Vote

Popular Vote: By the Numbers

Lately, we bloggers have been focused on the national elections in our attempts to reclaim and restore our Constitutional Republic. The people who belong to the Progressive States Network are working against that goal at all levels.

Examples of the upwards activism the PSN pursues are their letters to Obama from our State legislators:

Supporting Federal Health Care Reform

State Legislators for Progressive Immigration Policy

Create Jobs, Give States Fiscal Relief

All three of these would sound innocuous to the normal Americans, but in reality, they are letters demanding that the Federal government become more involved in the States’ activities and our personal lives at a time when we need less Federal involvement in anything State or personal, with the exception of sealing the border.

From the “Jobs” letter:

…Accordingly, the federal government must take proactive steps to create jobs and enact further fiscal relief for state and local governments. This includes extending FMAP increases for Medicaid, providing additional support for education, boosting funding for infrastructure projects and public transportation investments, supporting the long-term unemployed to sustain them until they reenter the workforce, and providing direct financial assistance to state and local governments to perform the vital services needed to maintain growth in local communities across the nation…

Signing on to the “Jobs” letter from Texas are:

  • Rep. Garnet Coleman (TX-147) Co-chairman of the PSN Board of Directors. Garnet was quoted recently on the Marxist emag Political Affairs. Sadly, Rep. Coleman is unopposed.
  • Sen. Rodney Ellis (TX-13) Opponent:  Michael Mauldin
  • Rep. Jessica Farrar (TX-148) Opponent: Fernando Herrera
  • Rep. Eddie Rodriguez (TX-51) Opponent: Marilyn Jackson

Nowhere in that letter is any mention of tax cuts or pro-business incentives for job creation, unless you count their concern for the loss of jobs in government and social services.

Government has grown too large as it is! The people who would fight for more government and social programs over actual private enterprise and real economic growth must be ousted from office at every level of government, Federal, State and local. Failure to do so, is to leave a bit of cancer in the infected host.

Those wanting to increase government dependents have been drafting recruits while we worker bees have been busy paying for their campaign through taxes for years and recently, stimulus packages re-routed to ACORN type organizations. Obama type community organizers have been training Progressive recruits how to “help moderate members of Congress” by framing Progressive issues in “palatable” ways.

An example of from the Center for Progressive Leadership

Question: Why would I need to make an issue “palatable” if it will stand on its own merit?

Answer: Because it is a lie in need of sugar coating.

Progressives are Socialists are Communists and are by definition anti-American. It’s past time everyone was made aware of their existence and agenda.

I would encourage bloggers to research these letters and the people who signed them. Find their opponents and support them. Post them in lists by state on your blogs along with their opponents.

November is coming!

Socia.list

This weekend, I plan to create a new blog page similar to the Texas 11 that, beginning with Texas, will contain a list of the State Senators and Representatives who align themselves with the PSN, along with their opposing candidates if available.

The title of that page will be Socia.list.

Catchy, don’t you think?

If anyone would like to help with compiling that list, I wouldn’t argue.  Just send me a link or comment with your post’s url and after verifying, I’ll be happy to include it. BTW, Project Vote Smart is a valuable resource for finding that type of information.

UPDATE: My apologies to John Carey of  The Current for not giving him the proper credit for bringing this group to my attention.

Also, No Sheeples Here’s proprietor extraordinaire, Carol has created a video that echos the message in this post.

The new Ten Buck Friday poll is up. You’ll notice that John Faulk from (TX- 18), is again included. I know you know who I voted for, right? Mr. Faulk is running against that train-wreck queen Sheila Jackson Lee, who is featured, not in a good way, as one of the 11 Texans who voted for Obamacare on this site somewhere or another.

Let’s vote for John Faulk in this weeks poll and get him a monetary boost to help dethrone the queen, shall we?

This week, RightKlik is evidently engaged in some capitalistic endeavor so No Sheeples Here has stepped up to compile a list of links for us. Hey, thanks Carol!

These are not mis-speaks. This is the thinking of the Obama regime.

I think this video should be viral. If you agree, then share it!

UPDATE: Beck produced this video in response to the smear tactics the left uses against Conservative candidates they are scared of such as Christine O’Donnell. They are using an off the cuff admission from Christine that she dabbled in witchcraft while a teenager in high school. Hmmm.

And now the Wiccans are getting their feelings hurt! How does that happen?

Wasn’t Mrs. Obummer introduced by a Wiccan at a fund raiser this weekend? Maybe O’Donnell should court the Wiccan vote a little more closely. ~ Nah.

Also, from the comments over at Riehl World View:

And don’t forget Obama’s first Social Secretary’s voodoo connection (which is probably how Obama got elected):

WSJ: “Desirée Glapion Rogers is the descendant of a Creole voodoo priestess named Marie Laveau Glapion…”
http://magazine.wsj.com/features/the-big-interview/desiree-rogers/

I’m never surprised by the depths the left will stoop to disparage an opponent. Never mind the fact that O’Donnell has since been led to Christ and is a devout Christian.

Oh. Wait. Never mind.

Also not to be missed, Carol over at No Sheeples Here has produced another outstanding piece of artistic snark you must see, so I liberated it from it’s digital bonds to decorate this wall.

Never mind the fact that we have a president who subverts the very documents we celebrate today by appointing czars and creating government organizations through executive order that are unaccountable to the people who pay their salaries. Never mind the fact that he swore an oath to uphold the very Constitution he walks on.

Today let us pledge to re-read the Constitution, it’s quite short, really. What it does, in just a few pages, is limit the powers of government with relation to it’s citizens, not grant rights to them. It states implicitly that the rights we enjoy are granted from our creator, not the government, and the government’s place is to protect those rights from encroachment by other citizens, corporations, or other governments including our own. It creates a self limiting government to serve the will of the people, not a ruling class, empowered to rule by decree and ignore the rule of law.

Let’s empower ourselves to re-establish the government envisioned in that Constitution by learning the tools the Founders gave us to combat the tyranny that resides in men, for it is ever present, always ready to throw bonds of slavery upon a sleeping giant. It is past time for the giant to awake. We’ve been hitting the snooze button for far too long.

God Bless America, and the citizens who protect her.

Here are a few links:

The Declaration of Independence

The United States Constitution

The Bill of Rights

The Federalist Papers

Constituting America – an organization for parents, teachers, students and anyone else interested in learning about the Constitution.

My friend in the ether and co-conspirator in the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy, General Robert “Bob” Belvedere, has penned a response to Brent Bozell’s claim that we conservatives are The Revolutionaries.

To paraphrase: “Au Contraire” says the Belvedere, “The revolutionaries occupy the White House and have their butts firmly planted in many seats of our houses of Congress. Butts that one January day in the near future will be thrown out of those seats.”

All we seek is a restoration of those unalienable rights that we are endowed with by our Creator and that are codified in the freedoms and liberties bequeathed to us by The Founding Fathers in The Constitution Of The United States Of America.

Conservatism is not revolutionary. It is, in fact, quite the opposite. By definition conservatism seeks to preserve tradition and tried and true methods that have proven worthy of merit.

A restoration is exactly what we seek.

Sometimes one person or group’s definition of progress is not desirable. For instance, why on earth would America want to run headlong into Communism or Socialism, when the rest of the world is running away from those political, social and economic policies? They obviously don’t work and yet we have the numb skulls in office, on both sides of the aisle, clamoring for the Keynesian policies that, if left unchecked, will eventually enslave our entire population!

I say we need a thorough delousing of Congress.

Bob’s tale is short and spot-on to the point. Do make a trip to his place and read the whole thing.

In related news,

Carol of No Sheeples Here has offered to aid the Democrat Party in their new logo redesign attempt.

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!

Yankee Phil brings some Dennis Miller and MMMMMM, Bacon.

Cassandra over at Villainous Company plays Queer Eye for the Oval Office Guy, with hilarious results. And don’t forget the comments. Out. Freaking. Standing. Stellar work, Madame.

Gator Doug asks, “Hey kids, who is ready to see Alan Grayson make an ass of himself again?

Just what is a Rebel 5?

American Perspective (Formerly MAinfo) brings us Natale Portman and some good news of a bunch of Muslim protesters being told to STFU.

Proof Positive has a linkfest of his own going.

American Power notes that fewer young people are identifying as Democrat and comments on the queering of the school system.

Donald Douglas also reminded me of this gem from Fleetwood Mac, Rumours.

Fuzzi Slippers has been on some kind of blogging hiatus lately, but this piece is worth a link and two reads:

White Guilt and Gynoguilt: How the Left’s Culture of Victimhood Undermines Equality

Hope all is well in your world, Fuzzi 🙂

Doug Ross re-examines the Chrysler dealership closings at length.

Kristin is also a little scarce on posting of late, but what she finds time to share is well worth the time. Just beware the Attack Chicken!

Conservative Hideout tallies the damage from Obamacare.

Adrienne has a great roundup of her own.

Maggie’s Notebook offers:

The following Drudge headlines are all the news we need to know to Remember November.

Amusing Bunni has a baby who is not amused.

Motor City Times has some hops inspired music to my tin ears along with another collection of great links.

Obi’s Sister has a final word on the GZ Mosque.

Three Words: Diana Falzone. Yowza!

Bride of Rove has a little fun with the Beck Sex Tape fiasco.

Pundit and Pundette cue up a laugh track.

Obama Fail Blog wonders on the joys of  Trailer Park Banking!

And leaving on a humorous note, The Current has a Joe Friday clip.

Enjoy your weekend, folks! ~ ‘bot

UPDATE: I added a link. Dare you to find it. 🙂

UPDATE II: Graciously linked at And So It Goes in Shreveport and Paco Enterprises.

And a belated thanks to Last Refuge of a Scoundrel for the nice words and blogroll add. I’m digging that ‘stang dude.

This week’s blog of note is No Sheeples Here!

There are few people in the world who possess the innate ability to juxtapose current events,  humor and biting commentary so adeptly in the photo-manipulation and artwork formats as Carol of No Sheeples Here! The Queen of Photoshop, Carol has amused most of us with her mad skillz at one time or another and has had yours truly slack-jawed with amazement on quite a few occasions.

Being the rabid patriot she is, Carol is also a preternatural master of political prose, possessing the ability to boil most any subject down to the root causes and strip away the chaff, showing us that she understands the subjects at hand at the visceral as well as contextual levels.

All that being said, the main reason I’m featuring her blog this week is, I just plain like her. Carol has been and continues to be one of the nicest people I’ve met on the net and one of the best humored. Although, judging from her artwork, which I must guess befits her demeanor, I wouldn’t want to tangle with The Queen.

Keep up the fine work, my friend, and I’ll keep stealing it. Deal?

Visit Carol’s site, No Sheeples Here often.

Also, check out her Photoshop repository, Mako Snark.

She also blogs at a few other great places. I would encourage you to explore her websites and find those as well. The bloggers she partners with are some of the best in the business, as I’m sure you will see.

Don’t forget to update your bookmarks and place these sites prominently in your blogrolls. You won’t regret the additions.

Last Saturday, Iran was allowed to begin inserting fuel rods into their nuclear reactor without so much as a whimper from the international community. World leaders heaved a collective *sigh* and continued their golf games, vacations and parlor parties while the citizens of the world, the sane ones anyway, were forced yet again to wonder on the competence and/or contrivance of said “leaders.”

Ever wonder what would have happened if Kennedy hadn’t called Khrushchev’s bluff? We’re about to find out.

Just one day (1) uno, one singular day after the fueling announcement comes news of a new Iranian ambassador.

Really? What’s his name?

The Ambassador of Death.

Nice. Gotta hand it to those mullahs, they sure know how to name a weapon.

Hey, I’ve got a better idea. How about something more appropriate? (Warning: tell the children to leave the room.)

How about we call it the “Dildo of Doom?” It would go along with the douche-nozzle who’s running the country over there. Sorry to be so graphic. I’ll revise the name to shall we say, “Marital Aid of Mass Destruction?” Nah, just doesn’t have the same ring of truth.

OK, one more: “Suppository of Subjugation.”

Feel free to add your own suggestions in the comments.

It is also interesting to note that Wired.com is questioning the Ambassador’s size, wondering aloud if Iran is claiming it’s ambassador to be more “endowed” than it really is.

“Is that a WMD in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?”

Each day that passes without taking out Iran’s threat of nuclear armaments is another day closer to World War Three. I’m hoping against hope that a special forces or some other clandestine outfit is making plans to sabotage their facilities.

There is a glimmer of hope though. An unattributed editorial in the Washington Times reports that

… There are unconfirmed reports that Reza Baruni, the mastermind of Iran’s drone program, was assassinated earlier this month when his heavily guarded villa in southern Iran was bombed. On the same day, three unarmed drone aircraft reportedly crashed into the containment dome of the Bushehr reactor…

Still, I’d like to see more than unattributed reports claiming unconfirmed actions of unarmed aircraft causing unknown results.

It’s all a bit… unsettling.

H/T No Sheeples Here! for finding the Iranian bomb video.
