Dorner

Dorner Derangement

As usual, Michelle Malkin nails it in this interview with Sean Hannity about cop-killer Christopher Dorner. My only quibble, based on posts I’ve seen on Facebook, is that it’s not just the Left that engages in “Blame Whitey” or “Blame Righty” as Michelle aptly notes; it’s also so-called civil libertarians.

Much like the anti-Catholic slurs like “The Pope is a False Prophet”, many of these same folks have been posting things like “The LAPD is a fascist organization”, complicit in the transformation of America into a “police state”. The utter contempt that many Libertarians harbor for the police, the military, the CIA, the FBI and other organizations — in addition to their cultish worship of Ron Paul — make it very difficult for me to focus on the things we do have in common.

Yes, there ought to be accountability in all of these organizations. Yes, we should have a healthy skepticism for all government agencies, many of which are completely unnecessary and only serve to feed the beast. The Department of Homeland Security and the TSA are but two of a multitude of examples of departments that should rightfully be abolished. I’m with them on that.

But as usual, some Libertarians take this to an extreme, actually siding with the Left in decrying “police brutality” and attempting to turn Chris Dorner into some kind of hero, while no doubt echoing the disgusting sentiments of Ron Paul, who recently tweeted in the wake of Chris Kyle’s tragic death: “Live by the sword, die by the sword”.

Having written extensively about Ron Paul over the past five years, I’ve often been at the receiving end of the Paul supporters’ deranged comments, which go something like this: “Get out of my country, you communist-fascist pig!” Check out this Alex Jones post at my old blog to get a full flavor of Libertarian “tolerance”. Many of them are the same people who believe the Pope is in cahoots with the Illuminati to take over the world while denying the existence of global jihad — facts and evidence be damned. Kind of ironic, considering no one has yet been able to prove the Catholic Church’s supposed quest for world domination, yet we have events like the 93 WTC bombing, the USS Cole bombing, the attacks of September 11, 2001, and the London subway bombings — among countless other examples. All instigated, planned and executed by Muslims.

Count this as another argument in support of the inextricable connection between a moral, upstanding society and economic prosperity. If we as a culture cannot bring ourselves to practice moral clarity and understand the difference between good and evil, we can also kiss economic prosperity goodbye. It’s just that simple.

Between the Catholic-bashing and the alignment of some of my Libertarian friends with the Left, it’s been a disheartening time for me lately. If we cannot get our act together and stand united against the forces of evil, our country as we’ve known it will cease to exist. Culture is politics, whether we like it or not. It’s not about declaring “truces” on social issues, but about upholding the Constitution and winning hearts and minds by making a cogent case for returning the power to the people on these wedge issues. From abortion to gay marriage, let the people decide. Let organizations on both sides make their case, and get the federal government out of it. Period.

End of rant.

“The Conservatives” Movie Trailer

The hits just keep on coming today as I discovered this new film from Young America’s Foundation that fights back against class warfare rhetoric and features some of the brightest minds in the conservative movement. Please watch the trailer, share with everyone you know and order the DVD at The Conservatives Movie.com.

Movie Trailer: Levin, Malkin Deliver Answer to Obama’s Class Warfare Rhetoric

Mark Levin in New Movie Trailer: Academic “Propaganda” is “Wrong. Dead Wrong”

By Ron Meyer, Young America’s Foundation Spokesman

America’s universities and schools are the training grounds for class warfare.

Where do you think President Obama and his administration’s economic advisors developed their redistributionist ideology and “fairness” rhetoric? It’s no coincidence most of them have spent their carrier in higher education. The President’s tax-hiking policies–and any public support they receive–originate from Leftist professors who preach collectivism over individual liberty.

Last week, the president said, “If you’ve got a business—you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

Conservatives will not sit on the sidelines as higher education and the Obama administration attempts to keep passing along their collectivist agenda to our nation’s youth.

Young America’s Foundation, along with the award-winning director Stephen K. Bannon, will be releasing a new film titled The Conservatives to present a positive alternative to campus leftism. Today, Young America’s Foundation launched the trailer for the movie.

Mark Levin, Michelle Malkin, Jonah Goldberg, Monica Crowley, Ph.D., Dr. Walter Williams, Stephen Moore, and Peter Schweizer—some of the brightest stars in the Conservative Movement—appear in the movie to offer an inspiring “call to action” for young conservative leaders.

Mark Levin begins the trailer by firing a warning-shot right at higher education: “Everything I was hearing [in college] was wrong. Dead wrong.” Later in the trailer, Levin says conservatives can prevail over these progressive professors and convince their peers by making a moral case for free enterprise: “It is the only system that creates wealth for the most people. No other system can. No other system will.”

Fox News contributor Monica Crowley adds, “The free market is the only thing that allows the individual to be who he or she wants to be.”

Miracle: Romney Finally Realizes Obama Is Not a “Nice Guy”

I’m with Michelle Malkin: Hallelujah!

Via left-leaning Buzzfeed, Team Romney finally concedes that Obama is not a “nice guy.”
The Mitts are off. At last!

Standing before hundreds of roaring partisans in this sweltering Pittsburgh suburb Tuesday, Mitt Romney delivered a 30-minute speech that sounded, at times, like a greatest hits compilation of his favorite Obama-knocking stump speech lines. The president was, Romney said, “out of ideas,” and “looking for someone to blame,” and a “crony capitalist.”
One thing he was not: “A nice guy.”
In speeches from Des Moines to Dallas, Romney has always been careful to hedge his tough digs at Obama with a civil nod toward the president’s moral character: “He’s a nice guy,” the Republican has often said. “He just has no idea how the private economy works.” But Tuesday’s speech included no such hedge — and one campaign adviser said there’s a reason for that.
“[Romney] has said Obama’s a nice fellow, he’s just in over his head,” the adviser said. “But I think the governor himself believes this latest round of attacks that have impugned his integrity and accused him of being a felon go so far beyond that pale that he’s really disappointed. He believes it’s time to vet the president. He really hasn’t been vetted; McCain didn’t do it.”
…”I mean, this is a guy who admitted to cocaine use, had a sweetheart deal with his house in Chicago, and was associated and worked with Rod Blagojevich to get Valerie Jarrett appointed to the Senate,” the adviser said. “The bottom line is there’ll be counterattacks.”

If it took Obama wrongly and outrageously calling Romney a “felon”, I say it’s all to the good. Romney finally got a taste of Chicago thug politics and it’s highly unpalatable. Dan Riehl wants this to last all the way to November:

That trickling noise you hear is “the editors” at NRO collectively wetting their panties as this starts to get out. If this is the way the game is going to play out – and keep playing out, the conservative blogosphere is going to have a hell of a good time through the Fall. Lord, I do hope so. And not simply because it feels good to hit Obama but because I’m convinced this is the right call and the only way to win this election.

I agree. Conservatives fully realize that another four years of Obama Chicago-on-the-Potomac tyranny will result in the demise of the United States as we know it. He’s already done nearly irreparable damage since being voted in by an ill-informed and easily duped electorate obsessed with celebrity, “coolness” and superficiality. But this time around, the thug has a record to run on and there’s no reason not to tie that record with his commie-influenced upbringing; close association with radicals like domestic terrorist Bill Ayers and America-hating Reverend Wright; and mob-style, ends-justify-the-means political practices.

Culture of Corruption indeed. It’s about time the GOP stopped operating out of fear of offending the tender sensibilities of so-called swing voters and started waking them up to reality. For that matter, it’s well past time for the GOP to stop operating out of fear, period. The left will falsely brand us “racist”, “xenophobic”, “anti-immigrant”, “anti-Muslim”, “anti-woman”, “anti-gay” and basically “anti” any aggrieved group they exploit for votes no matter what, so let’s try something novel by boldly telling voters the truth about who we elected nearly four years ago.

No, we will never capture the 30% of the country that is hopelessly enthralled by progressivism no matter how many times you argue the facts, as Ellen Snyder and I did for hours last night on twitter. So let’s focus on people who are truly persuadable and genuinely interested in knowing the facts in order to make an informed vote.

By the way, this video is for the liberals Ellen and I tried to educate about the housing/financial crisis:

To the Romney team, if you want to win and prove to the base that you’re willing to fight keep up this up all the way to November…and for crying out loud, invite Governor Sarah Palin to speak at the RNC!

ACLJ Steps Up To Defend Conservative Bloggers Against Brett Kimberlin

On the heels of Senator Saxby Chambliss demanding an inquiry from the DOJ about Brett Kimberlin comes another very promising development.

Michelle Malkin reports the good news:

I’ve been telling you about First Amendment lawyers working behind the scenes to help the targets of Brett Kimberlin and his online cabal.
Kudos to the ACLJ for stepping up to the plate in the face of ongoing threats and smears. Just released:

IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 7, 2012

ACLJ DEFENDS FREE SPEECH IN BLOGOSPHERE – REPRESENTING TOP CONSERVATIVE BLOGGERS TARGETED FOR HARASSMENT

(Washington, DC) – The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), which focuses on constitutional law, announced today it is providing legal representation to a top conservative blogger and his organization that represents hundreds of bloggers who are facing threats and intimidation tactics by those opposed to their viewpoint.
“Free speech is under attack,” said Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the ACLJ. “Conservative writers are now facing threats against themselves, their families, and their livelihoods merely because they’ve aggressively investigated the history and funding of radical liberals. The ACLJ has a long history of successfully defending free speech, and we look forward to defeating this latest attempt to threaten and intimidate conservatives into silence.”

The issue involves targeting a number of conservative bloggers with a dangerous and illegal tactic that’s become known as SWAT-ing (making false 911 calls sending police to the homes of bloggers, claiming a crime has occurred.) The tactic is used in retaliation for posts the conservative bloggers have written.

The ACLJ is representing Ali Akbar, a top blogger and president of the National Bloggers Club, a coalition of 300 conservative bloggers who reach millions of readers. Akbar has seen his mother’s home photographed and placed on the internet. He has also received formal notification that he may soon be sued for publishing truthful information about radical liberals and their wealthy donors.
“I’m grateful for the support of the ACLJ, and I’m confident we’ll defeat any and all legal challenges to our fundamental right to free speech,” said Akbar. “We will not be deterred in our quest for the truth.”

The ACLJ will aggressively defend the constitutionally-protected free speech rights of Akbar and his organizations.

The ACLJ’s representation of Akbar comes as Senator Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) is calling on Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate the SWAT-ting cases to see if federal laws have been violated. In a letter to the Attorney General, Sen. Chambliss wrote: “Any potentially criminal action that incites fear, seeks to silence a dissenting opinion, and collaterally wastes the resources of law enforcement should be given close scrutiny at all levels. . . Regardless of any potential political differences that may exist, threats and intimidation have no place in our national political discourse.”

Led by Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow, the American Center for Law and Justice is based in Washington, D.C. and online at www.aclj.org.

More at The Other McCain, who while blogging from an undisclosed location thanks to Kimberlin and his lefty cohorts wonders why CNN is disinterested in the story, even though one of their on-air personalities is himself a victim of Kimberlin’s thuggery:

FROM AN UNDISCLOSED LOCATION

Very busy today, awaiting developments on The Kimberlin Files. However, Da Tech Guy cleverly points out that CNN allowed Arlette Saenz of ABC to beat them on reporting this story, even though the reported SWATting of CNN on-air personality Erick Erickson was a central element of the story.

For that matter, CNN contributorDana Loesch is well-informed about the Kimberlin story, and could put CNN’s reporters in direct contact with many others who are involved. But maybe the executives at CNN would rather continue being No. 3 in cable news ratings, and let their competitors scoop them on such an important story, because they are more interested in playing politics than reporting the actual news.

Jeff Goldstein mocks Brett Kimberlin’s self-proclaimed victimhood.

Obviously, having spoken to Saenz about my own role in the story, I oweThe American Spectator a follow-up on my May 29 article, “Terror By Any Other Name.” So . . .busy day.

Read it all at The Other McCain.

So great to see these bloggers getting the representation they deserve and this story gaining widespread attention. Lefty thugs picked this fight and champions of free speech are going to finish it.
