Glenn Beck Sex Tape, Keith Olbermann Missing, And Rick Sanchez And The RAAAAACIST Industrial Complex

In the midst of Howard Dean telling us that we are all racists and lost souls, Huffington Post offering $100K for anyone who can produce a "sex tape" of Glenn Beck, Keith Olbermann once again being conspicuously on vacation at a time when he would be oh, so likely to step in it (yet his guest host Lawrence O'Donnell actually used CBS's crowd estimate of 87K!), and the great dispute over the actual number of attendees at Saturday's Restoring Honor Rally, perhaps my favorite non-story in the form of a story of today comes from CNN, and the mouth of the man Glenn Beck has deemed "The Dumbest Man ever on Television."

While speaking about the recent controversies and [alleged] falsehoods surrounding President Barack Hussein Obama, Sanchez used a classic idiom in a not-so-intentional way.

His voice rising in frustration as he tried to make his point, Sanchez asked his guest, CNN correspondent Jessica Yellin, why people continued to believe the alleged false rumors. Said Sanchez:

"He is the cotton picking president of the United States! If the president of the United States doesn't have enough of a bully pulpit to convince people that...a lie is a lie...what the hell is going on here?"

After a commercial break, Sanchez immediately apologized. He said that soon after he had used the phrase, people had started contacting him on Twitter, pointing out that he had just used it when referring to a black man — an insensitive reference, they thought, given the phrase's alleged connections to slavery.

This is a classic idiom if ever there was one. Yosemite Sam comes to mind very quickly - but of course the Progs might call Sam a RAAAAACIST too...

The phrase "cotton-picking" can also be defined as a verbal adjective. Anyone with even the slightest understanding of the English language and a little bit of assimilation to classic Americana understands that even Rick Sanchez - as ridiculous as the man can be sometimes - mean no harm to the president with his benign choice of words.

But certainly it should come as no surprise that Rick Sanchez made such a silly statement that he felt the need to quickly follow with an apology. According to, Sanchez has had quite a handful of on-air foot-in-mouth moments. On October 16, 2009, the CNN anchor gave an on-air apology for running an unconfirmed quote attributed to Rush Limbaugh earlier that week. As for other on-air gaffes, just during the course of 2010, Sanchez wasn't sure who was protesting at the annual March for Life, misidentified the Galapagos Islands as Hawaii, "joked" that it was "too cold" in Iceland "to have a volcano there," and incorrectly guessed that the Nixon/Kennedy debate took place in 1962.

I'm sure it's just a matter of time before the RAAAAACIST Industrial Complex pounces on this situation... Just a glance at some of the comments at Huffington Post regarding this situation tell me what the cotton-picking leftists will have to say before all's said and done.

Huffington Post: Glenn Beck Is Not Martin Luther King, Jr.

Over at my favorite leftist blog The Huffington Post - you know, the one that calls itself "The Internet Newspaper," a filmmaker named Robert Greenwald has written an article entitled, "Glenn Beck Is Not Martin Luther King, Jr."

Interestingly, not once does the Huffington Post piece offer the name "Restoring Honor Rally" in its description of this Saturday's events.

While the piece itself is not terribly insulting or demeaning (as have been many on that blog) it does attempt to bring home the same hyperbolic image of Beck we see across the leftist media and blogosphere.

The Reverend King once declared that, "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter," Greenwald states in his opinion piece.

He continues, "But we will not be silent on this matter. We will not let Beck and Palin hijack history and continue in their attempts to further harm and disrupt our collective future."

Further down the page, the article offers a link to a page with the URL "" Very predictable, to say the least.

The paragraph from which this link is taken - without the link, because I don't believe they deserve the web traffic, reads as follows:

Come join us in standing with Martin Luther King Jr's vision of this country. {Click here} to declare your continued commitment to Dr. King's legacy, and that you will not let Beck trash and tarnish the meaning of King's dream.

So... since I'm sure you'd expect no less of me... I left this comment:

Beck has never wished to be mentioned in the same sentence as Dr. King. This is pure hyperbole from the left, intending to besmirch a man who has a system of beliefs and passions that are very American, yet different from the beliefs of some others.

In the mean time, were we to make the comparison:

Dr. King called out those he saw not treating people of different races equally. President Obama has shown he wishes to create legislation and an emotional tone in America that is racially biased favoring non-whites, and Beck has spoken out.

Dr. King believed in Natural Law, and he believed in Equal Justice under American Law. Beck believes in Equal Justice and Natural Law.

Dr. King was scorned harshly and unfairly by his critics - the "opposition" of a just and fair America. He was called names, belittled, and threatened. Beck is receiving unbelievably harsh criticism, is belittled by the left constantly, and has been threatened to the point he now employs a security staff.

Dr. King had a faithful group of supporters who believed in God and believed strongly that Dr. King was a good person and a righteous messenger, but no Deity. Beck's supporters are much like those of Dr. King.

Over time Dr. King was proven correct in every belief he has about equality and justice.

Glenn Beck is yet to be judged by the test of time... but he's clearly on the right side of history.

If you click this link you can read my comment at the site, followed by the intelligent commentary offered in reply. Really, it's worth the couple of minutes. Really.

I will not be in Washington D.C. this Saturday. Actually, if everything goes as planned, I will be working some overtime, which is one of the best things I could be doing if I can't make the pilgrimage to the Restoring Honor Rally. I must admit, every time I hear Beck say, "You will wish you were there," I cringe and wish I were going to be there, but as they say.. that's life.

I hope the thousands of patriots in attendance of the Restoring Honor Rally have the time of their lives. I'm sure soon there will be many great stories and pictures shared on many of our friend's blogs, and I for one can't wait to hear all about it.

In the mean time, while those of us with common sense and decency continue to stand up for and defend the efforts of Beck and all those like him (including ourselves!) who speak out for what is right, let us pray that this weekend is a wonderful and safe event.

And may God bless The United States of America.

More Of The Same... John McCain Wins AZ Senatorial Primary

With less than 1% of precincts reporting, The Associated Press has already called it - John McCain has won the Republican Primary for Senate in Arizona.

John McCain didn't so much win this election as J. D. Hayworth lost this election. Hayworth has greatly damaged what once was a promising political career with a handful of gaffes, and a little help from McCain running a commercial about an infomercial.

Six more years.... ugh. We're sorry, America.

A Preview of Arizona's Primary Through The Eyes of Soloman

So the headline on Drudge Report reads, "This Time For The Win!" and links to an Associated Press / John McCain slobber-fest as only the leftist media can provide, on the night before Arizona's Senatorial Primary.

The co-author of McCain-Feingold "Campaign Finance Reform," McCain has all but guaranteed himself the win in this election by over-saturating the Arizona media market like an August Monsoon storm floods the roads of Phoenix. One can not turn on any television or radio station without seeing the fromerly self-described "Maverick," who has re-branded himself as "Trusted" leadership. Phooey. McCain has spent an astounding $19.6 million, according to the Associated Press article, and as sure as the Arizona sun will shine brightly tomorrow, McCain will tack quickly back to the left once he's bought himself these next six years in office.

Honestly, I'm so sick of hearing McCain's commercials that if I didn't know who to vote for, I'd vote against him just because I'm so sick of hearing his commercials. Oh yeah.. that and the fact that Chris Matthews just said he'd vote for McCain if he lived in Arizona. That's all I need to know...

To his credit, McCain has run one heck of a campaign. It's a shame he didn't do this much dirt-digging and information seeking when he ran against then candidate Barack Hussein Obama. We'd likely be discussing President McCain today... but I digress.

There is a third party in the Arizona Senatorial race - a Navy Veteran and absolute political amateur, Jim Deakin. If, for Deakin's sake, this were just about any other election cycle, he might stand a chance... but not this time around. Sadly, a seemingly good man will do nothing more then siphon votes away from McCain's stronger challenger,former Congressman turned radio talk-show host, J. D. Hayworth.

Hayworth has not done himself any favors in this campaign. In my opinion, the biggest mistake Hayworth made was forgetting that he is no longer a talk-show host looking for ratings. I write a blog... I get it... while I'm no major media mogul and not a talker on a Clear Channel affiliate, I see that in the opinion business you want to attract people to your space in the game.

Hayworth is really, really good as a talk-show host. He connects with his listeners, and I hoped that that connection would carry over to his campaign. Instead, though, Hayworth made a couple of rather unseemly gaffes that brought him national attention, and when you're up against the likes of McCain and his countless flip-flops, what you've got to do is present yourself as the beacon of reason and consistency.

Hayworth had the consistency label all over his own commercials, but he didn't present himself as a sound alternative to McCain's liberal tendencies. Instead, with comments like the one he made about how same-sex marriage would allow people to marry horses, Hayworth played right into the main-stream media's anti-conservative playbook and they ran wild with it.

So... I could go on, but the point her is quite obvious. I hope like crazy that I'm wrong, but I'll be shocked if J. D. Hayworth pulls off what would truly be the upset of this century.

In the other Arizona political race of great interest, Arizona CD3 is kind of like a "Last Man Standing" event. There are a total of ten candidates on record; in my opinion we've got six real contenders.

We've got playboy Ben Quayle and his "Barack Obama is the Worst President In History" commercials - because somehow that qualifies Ben Quayle to be my Congressman? While I agree with his sentiment, he's got nothing but that and his father's legacy to prove his worthiness...and let's face it, he's absolutely trading on his father's legacy.

Next we have Vernon Parker, who was once the mayor of Paradise Valley, a very well-to-do part of town. Good for him... but he seems like a career politician and I'm a bit leery of that right now. Parker seems like a nice enough man... he likes to promote his proximity to George H. W. Bush during his early career. While he does have Sheriff Joe Arpaio's endorsement, I believe he's got too much of that "Career" thing going on to have a real chance.

Paulina Morris has mocked pretty much everyone in her most recent commercial, with the exception of the other woman in the race, Pamela Gorman. She's favored by the leftists here, and since independents can vote in either primary here she just may get some crossover votes from the left since she's pro-abortion.

Jim Waring comes across as a very good candidate. He is a co-sponsor of SB 1070, and has been in the Arizona legislature since 2002. Not much else to say, which I guess says something.

Steve Moak came across very well on the radio... like a real serious businessman, and really impressed me. I like the fact that he was deeply involved in a non-profit that fought drug use amongst teens called "notMYkid, Inc." There have been some questions about financial relationships between Moak's personal business and the non-profit, but those allegations come from Ben Quayle (see above) and have proven to be largely unsubstantiated.

Finally.. Pamela Gorman brings to Arizona an embodiment of the recent trend in Conservative politics. There is, no doubt, a very real "Conservative Woman's" movement happening across America, and Ms. Gorman represents this trend in a real, open, and down to Earth fashion. While no doubt famous for her viral video in which she displays her marksmanship skills with a variety of firearms, Gorman has real experience in Arizona politics. And while she has spent time in politics, she differs from many "career" politician types: she has never held on to one political seat while attempting to gain another.

I like Moak, and I like Gorman. The one thing that, in my opinion, sets Gorman apart, is that she has made an effort to be out there at all the recent events, and that she has run a completely positive campaign. That, and the fact that she recently said during a radio interview that, should she win this Congressional seat, her first order of business would be to join the newly formed "Tea Party Caucus," because she realizes that the way to get things done is to join forces with other like-minded representatives.

So tomorrow I'm off to my polling place to take part in the greatest right we Americans are privileged to take part in - the act of casting my vote for my representatives. It's just a primary, but still, I hope my choices win.. but in the long run, I hope whoever wins will be the right choices for Arizona and for the future of America.

The Fourteenth Amendment, The Supreme Court, And The Rule Of Law

Recently there has been a great deal of discussion about Amending The Constitution - specifically with regards to the Fourteenth Amendment. I believe this concept is not a good idea for America, and that it is also terrible politics for the Conservative movement.

America certainly has national security issues, and one of those issues is the influx of people who – for one reason or another – are setting up camp and calling America home. People from around the world cross our southern border at an alarming rate, and the reality is that no matter how many people we deport through ICE and other federal means, there are more people entering America than will ever leave.

In enacting SB 1070, Arizona recently made a valiant attempt to help the federal government in its effort to keep illegal immigration in check, but in a highly partisan move the Barack Hoover Hussein Obama administration and its Justice Department filed suit against Arizona and Governor Jan Brewer.

The SB 1070 case has been before a District Court judge. Judge Susan Bolton (a Clinton appointee) issued a temporary injunction against the “controversial” yet most important parts of the law, essentially rendering it ineffective as a support system for the feds, which was its intent as written. The case is being appealed, and will be heard next by the typically leftist Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Regardless of what decision comes from The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, the SB 1070 case is expected to reach The Supreme Court, perhaps by late 2011.

In the mean time, I believe what is most important for America and the Conservative movement is maintaining a laser-like focus on the issues, most specifically border security.

Border security as a single issue is a topic that has no partisan slant; it is purely and simply about the safety and sovereignty of The United States of America. Even my friends at The Huffington Post can see the importance of a secure border.

Meanwhile, we who care about American sovereignty must not allow the left to turn anything we say into a hyper-partisan issue that causes more distraction and harm than good.

We have already seen that they are willing to manipulate the truth to suit their agenda, with edited video like the one The Center for American Progress offered, of a leftist progressive acting like a RAAAAACIST at a Tea Party event. Then there was the one aired by MSNBC, of the Black man outside an Obama rally in Arizona with the AR-15 over his shoulder – even though MSNBC never showed he was a Black man.

A perfect example of this type of distraction is the “Birther” movement. Honestly, it makes no difference today where Obama was born. He is President, and even if he were removed from office, what happens next? Biden takes office? Pelosi as Commander-in-Chief? Do we really want San-Fran-Nan sitting behind the desk in The Oval Office? Honestly, I’ll keep Obama, given my options. At least by now with him, we know where we stand and what to expect. Alinsky tactics, blame Bush, and narcissism beyond anyone’s wildest expectation.

In case you haven’t noticed, every politician or Tea Party member who shows signs of being a “Birther” ends up on Olbermann, Maddow, Matthews, and / or Huffington Post and other radical leftist media venues. This is not helpful. There are some moderate liberals who get some of their information from these sources, and they can be negatively influenced by such drivel.

The prizes on which sane Americans must keep our eye are first November 2010, and then The White House in 2012. As we move closer to these key election dates, the partisan leftists and their media lapdogs are going to push every hot button they can find, cry RAAAAACIST at every turn, and specifically target Hispanic voters who sadly can be very easily manipulated by well messaged Alinsky-like information from Spanish-speaking radio stations and television networks like Telemundo, most of which are owned and operated by NBC and other leftist media entities.

If Conservatives drive hard for a change in The Constitution, the left will play to the base with messages about how “Neo-Cons” are trying to “Manipulate The Constitution for their own RAAAAACIST agenda.”

Therefore, we must maintain focus on the border, and let the States and due process take care of the Rule of Law.

Arizona’s legislature has already discussed moving forward with a bill that will “Not allow” citizenship to babies born of women who are not American – “anchor babies,” if you will.

If Arizona or any other state enacts such a law, it will certainly be challenged and taken through the court system, as is the case with SB 1070. This will allow a ruling by The Supreme Court, which is the proper way to decide what exactly should be done about The Fourteenth Amendment.

The role of The Supreme Court is to evaluate a case, and how The Constitution applies to that specific case. A law such as the one being discussed in Arizona would allow for the first time an opportunity for The Supreme Court to interpret the phrase, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.”

The left will tell us that this phrase means since a person is on American soil, that person is subject to American jurisdiction. This is not quite accurate. Certainly that person must obey American laws, but they are truly “Under the jurisdiction” of their own homeland, wherever that may be. This is why America allows extradition of lawbreakers, and expects the same of other nations when a lawbreaker flees persecution by America’s judicial system.

Conservatives differ; we believe that a person is not automatically subject to American jurisdiction simply because they are born on American soil. Again – everyone who enters America must follow our laws while on American soil, but America reserves the right to deport anyone for just cause at any time, and will extradite a person who deserves lawful prosecution from their homeland.

The Fourteenth Amendment was written because people who were once not free, but who were truly Americans, were suddenly given freedom, and with that came the need to define these people as citizens. Slaves at that time had every right to believe that The United States was their home; it was. After all, they had been brought to America against their will, and many of them had never known an existence outside America’s borders.

Today’s situation is very different. While certainly the plight of many illegal aliens is sympathetic, the truth is that many people plan vacations or specifically migrate to America because they are with child and wish to take advantage of the current interpretation of The Fourteenth Amendment. This is not “Birthright citizenship,” this is deviant manipulation of a compassionate nation that now is dealing with its own economic and security concerns, many of which have been caused by the very actions these migrants have taken for decades.

One other thought – perhaps the most important of all. If we focus on The Fourteenth Amendment and not border security, our rationale will appear even more in the image the leftists wish.

If we’re border security hawks, that’s about national security. If we worry about an amendment, that’s about Mexicans. While that may not be 100% true in all instances, the manipulative leftist media will make it incredibly easy to see, so we know the leftists will be all over it.

America needs a secure border. At the national level, securing our border must be our first focus, and really our only focus at this moment regarding immigration and national security. While we certainly have seen a great dog and pony show recently from Washington including today’s signing of a new “border security bill,” things are not getting any better when it comes to national security.

If we have a secure border, most of the Fourteenth Amendment issues go away. We will have much less illegal entry into America if our borders are secure. The entire motive behind the concept of such an amendment is about "birthright citizenship," and there will be far fewer "birthright citizenship" migrations if people know it is that much more difficult to gain entry into The United States.

I honestly believe the only thing preventing amnesty right now is President Barack Hoover Hussein Obama's desire for a second term, and if he sees the trade winds blowing from the political right come Election Day, we'll have 15 million people with winning lottery tickets in late 2012.

What we need most at this moment is to stem the tide of illegal entry into America, so that even if we do have “Instant Amnesty” courtesy of President Obama, we can stop the same from happening next time we have a radical progressive in office.

Honest Americans know that border security and laws such as SB 1070 are not about Mexican people – they are about anyone who poses a threat to our security and sovereignty, and that includes anyone who is not a documented citizen, student, or legal worker who gains entry into our nation.

We must keep up the pressure on Washington; never letting them forget what Americans really believe is the right thing to do - secure the border.

Or, as John McCain once famously said, “Build the dang fence.”

The Boom Boom Room? Greg Gutfeld Proposes Gay Bar Next Door to Ground Zero Mosque

Demonstrating the ingenuity of a great American, Fox News Channel host Greg Gutfeld has proposed a way to help break down barriers and increase understanding with the Muslims who wish to build a mosque just steps from Ground Zero:
A gay bar.

Gutfeld, the former Huffington Post guest blogger and current host of FNC's late night cult hit Red Eye, made the proposal during Monday night's "Gregalogue," a segment in which Gutfeld takes an intriguing look at the events of the day and offers a sarcastic, if not sane, perspective.

"As an American, I believe they have every right to build the mosque - after all, if they buy the land and they follow the law - who can stop them?

Which is, why, in the spirit of outreach, I've decided to do the same thing,"
Gutfeld offered.

" I'm announcing tonight," he continued, "That I am planning to build and open the first gay bar that caters not only to the west, but also Islamic gay men. To best express my sincere desire for dialogue, the bar will be situated next to the mosque Park51, in an available commercial space.

This is not a joke. I've already spoken to a number of investors, who have pledged their support in this bipartisan bid for understanding and tolerance."

Gutfeld went on to describe the fact that the Muslim faith does not look kindly upon homosexuality, and that his new venture "Is an effort to break down barriers and reduce deadly homophobia in the Islamic world."

He closed by stating that his place "Will have better music," and that anyone serious about investment opportunities should contact him at

My personal suggestions for names? As written above in the title of this post, "The Boom Boom Room," or maybe "Mohamed's Secret." I'd love to hear your suggestions...
