The Greatest President of My Lifetime

Share

On September 11 2001, America felt its vulnerability even to threats that gather on the other side of the Earth. We resolved then, and we are resolved today, to confront every threat from any source that could bring sudden terror and suffering to America.”

I believe that God has planted in every heart the desire to live in freedom.”

Interesting-Facts-About-George-W-Bush

America is a Nation with a mission – and that mission comes from our most basic beliefs. We have no desire to dominate, no ambitions of empire. Our aim is a democratic peace – a peace founded upon the dignity and rights of every man and woman.

Various conservative blogs are highlighting their false worship of a man they really don’t know – Ronald Reagan. I thought it would be fun to celebrate the one president who was more conservative than Ronald Reagan. You doubt it? Sorry, but there is another…

With those attacks, the terrorists and their supporters declared war on the United States. And war is what they got.”

If you listen to this and think about what is going on today, you will be sick in heart and spirit as all the Great Man worked so hard to achieve is being flushed down the toilet of incompetence and pandering to the forces of evil.

When you turn your heart and your life over to Christ,
when you accept Christ as the savior, it changes your heart
.”

We know that dictators are quick to choose aggression, while free nations strive to resolve differences in peace.

Everywhere that freedom stirs, let tyrants fear.

You can’t put democracy and freedom back into a box.

After the chaos and carnage of September 11th, it is not enough to serve our enemies with legal papers.

Government does not create wealth. The major role for the government is to create an environment where people take risks to expand the job rate in the United States.

Arrested Development – Obama Style

Share

What is the deal with spending twenty-four thousand bucks so people could get three thousand or so bucks to purchase a new car?

Arrested Development, that late great satire of television show is long gone, but alive and well living in the White House. It is a story about a family so incompetent they cannot even be good crooks. Absolutely NOTHING the Bluth Family does is right, even lying, cheating, stealing, swindling, and hanging with Saddam.

We are living in very interesting times. Any number of people I know are down, depressed, distressed, upset, and just plain terrified about what is coming.

Why not?

arrested-developmentFox is the enemy.

The Chamber of Commerce is the enemy.

Rush Limbaugh is the enemy.

Basically anyone who criticizes He Who Must Be Adored is the enemy.

Have you realized that Barack Obama is like the Balloon Boy’s Dad? He is the star of the biggest reality show on earth – a star I tell you – a star! We do know he has played golf more in just a few months than GWB did in three years. Psssst….his towel slapping all boy’s club is angering the libers!

It is entirely possible health care reform is going passed even if we do not want it. Real unemployment is something we only get when Republicans are in office. The Administration reports 9.8 % unemployment, but we’re actually looking at something around 17%. (Hyscience)

Unfortunately, if we do not turn around and laugh, we are going to lose perspective on life. And laugh we should. Barack Obama is quickly becoming a farce, a joke, the stuff late night legends are made of – if only he were Republican.

The Pink Flamingo, in her humble estimation, thinks there have been a handful of truly great television shows: Bonanza, Star Trek Classic, I Love Lucy, MASH, and Arrested Development. (First, a note for Arrested Development fans: Yes, there may indeed be a movie.

Same Conservative Lies – New Conservative Target

Share

For some strange reason, when you tell numerous lies about a person, you end up hating the person you lie about. It is quite obvious this is what has happened to Lindsey. The far right, prompted by Rush Limbaugh, Michelle Malkin, and Laura Ingraham have told so many lies about Lindsey that the only way they can justify their mis-treatment of him is to turn him into an object of hatred.

I think they are starting to do the same thing to Newt Gingrich.

Something very nasty is going on with the conservative universe. Evidently someone doesn’t like Lindsey Graham and will literally do and say anything to destroy him. Doesn’t matter if it isn’t true. Doesn’t matter what they say. Lindsey Graham is evil and must be destroyed.

This is all getting old and very nasty. It is getting vicious, mean-spirited, and downright unpatriotic. If you march lock-step to what certain individuals desire, you are to be destroyed.

There is no different between the Democrat Hate Machine and the Conservative Hate Machine – just the names and faces. The methods are the same. They will do ANYTHING to destroy those who have been marked for elimination.

It would be interesting to see who first put the “conservative” hit out on Lindsey. I suspect it was John Tanton. I know that Michelle Malkin is in on it. The nastiness she spreads – and has spread about Lindsey was the cause of her dismissal from FOX News awhile back. She and Geraldo went to war over the disgusting illustrations she promoted. I suspect Lindsey has come rather close to the truth about this bunch of Malkin’s little friends.

The Face of Real Leadership

One of the things the Great Man was criticized for was his alleged lack of keeping the GOP and conservatives in “order”, or keeping them “in line”. Obviously that canard was just another lie detractors liked to use in order to denigrate the Great Man.

Evidently, considering the mess the far right is making of the GOP and their ongoing demands for a “purge”, it is more than obvious the Great Man kept all those nasty little factions in control.

NY-23 It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World

Share

What is arguably one of the greatest comedies ever made is Stanley Kramer’s classic It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World. The 1963 film had one of the most amazing comedic casts ever assembled. It is all about seemingly innocent men and women who get drawn into the most hilarious car chase ever, all for money. In the process lives were ruined, careers destroyed, and almost every one of them ended up in jail.

Is NY-23 a litmus test for 2010? The far right wants us to think it is. Newt thinks something else is going on – a purge. He could be right – but The Pink Flamingo thinks something else is going on.

NY-23 appears to be a litmus test for the towering egos who want to be POTUS, or want to control the GOP.

IT’S A MAD MAD MAD MAD WORLD

It is like a line about Tombstone in 1882, nothing but a mining town, dirty and small minded.

That’s what we are dealing with – dirty and small minded twits who do not comprehend that we are starting to see the “stars” jockey for position for 2012.

The Pink Flamingo is not unconvinced the whole battle in NY-23 is not a way for Jerri Thompson to settle herself (not her hubby) on the center stage.

Who is going to win the tug – o – war?

Can Sarah Palin use Facebook and call the shots?
Tim Pawlenty is playing ketchup.
Fred Thompson is being led around by his much younger wife – as usual.
Newt Gingrich is being denounced by the extreme far right.
Jim DeMint is behaving as usual.
We’re not hearing much from Mitt Romney.
Mike Huckabee is going to South Carolina.
Rick Santorum is in there fighting.
Steve Forbes is donating $$$$.
Dick Armey is Tea Partying.

Wyatt Earp and George W. Bush

Share

Today is the 128th Anniversary of the Shootout at the OK Corral. After 30 seconds of shooting, three men – Billy Clanton, Frank & Tom McLaury were either dead or dying. Ike Clanton had fled, and three others – Virgil & Morgan Earp and Doc Holliday were injured. Only Wyatt Earp was uninjured. Thus was born legend and the American character was fully defined.

We are a nation of Wyatt Earps. “It all ends now!” Stand up and fight for what is right no matter what the personal cost. We see it again and again in the history of this country. Fact is, once upon a time a Wyatt Earp clone resided in the Oval Office.

Right is right and wrong is wrong. A President of the United States of America should know the difference and should know how to lead. Actions speak louder than words read from a teleprompter.

We should all have the courage of a Wyatt Earp or a George W. Bush.

Glenn Beck Lies About Lindsey

Share

To Glenn Beck, all Republicans are “corrupt”, even someone like George W. Bush.

Lindsey is in good company. Not only is Glenn Beck trashing him, but Friday night on O’Reilly he trashed GWB, basically calling him “corrupt”.

Glenn Beck is a spoiled, nasty little brat of a clown who cannot be criticized. Lindsey called down the thunder on him, and Beck is behaving in his usual horrible fashion.

Now They’ve Turned on Newt

Share

My grandfather Froehlich was a cattleman all of his life. He had the largest independent dairy in south Florida, milking several hundred cows on a 24 hour basis. Having spent all of his life around cows, he had a tendency to equate and philosophize about life via cows. He also had a rather cynical view of humanity, likening them to cows.

He would have a very dismal view of today’s “conservative base”, considering them nothing but cattle.

What happens when people who are NOT Republican acquire enough power to manipulate themselves into the position where they can call the shots?

Okay, they are smart. They are a heck of a lot smarter than “we are”. If we had half their cunning, duplicitous brains, we would know how to manipulate them and not the other way around.

Republicans who allow it are just downright pathetic. That’s what is going on in the GOP today. A minority group of conservatives have terrorized our more spineless Republican officials into thinking THEY ARE THE BASE, when nothing could be farther from the truth.

Why should people who have no relationship with a political party be the ones who call the shots?

They are abusive bullies who have come up with a formula to terrorize our elected officials. When good men like Lindsey stand up to them, well – you can see the results. They lie, denigrate, abuse, and manipulate.

Golly, they are good conservatives!

The far right now thinks Newt Gingrich is not good enough for them. They’ve also turned on Mike Huckabee, but then they never did like Huck. This whole mess is because the NY GOP is absolutely incompetent.

Why Does the Far Right Hate Lindsey Graham?

Share

“…”There will be no climate change bill with my vote unless you have offshore oil drilling,” Graham told Fox News on Thursday. “I won’t vote for any climate change bill that doesn’t allow a dramatic increase in nuclear power. I’m not going to vote for any climate change bill that doesn’t allow us to use our coal deposits.”…”

Friday on his show, Rush Limbaugh did not tell the truth. He was complaining about the fact that no Republicans were standing up to the Obama Administration and trying to be leaders. He lied. Lamar Alexander is standing up to them. So is John McCain. Mitch McConnell is fighting. Charles Grassley, once denounced as “liberal” is sounding like a regular Ronald Reagan as he fights the liberals.

We have some great Republicans trying to fight Obama. Unfortunately the far right talking heads would rather lie about their efforts than to praise them. There’s a good reason. I think the far right wants to prevent the GOP from winning in 2010.

It’s obvious they have a “hate on” for many of our leaders, Lindsey especially.

There’s a good reason for this.

Lindsey is emerging as THE leader of the Republicans in the Senate. If Lindsey continues on his current path, he is going to be the most powerful Republican in Washington, the perfect replacement for George W. Bush – a true patriot and a man of honor.

How the Far Right Will Destroy America

Share

To quote C3PO “We’re doomed.”

You know the far right has gone too far when they turn on Newt Gingrich.

On O’Reilly Thursday night, Laura Ingraham did nothing but complain about Obama and his administration and Dems in general. She talked about how they set out to destroy the reputation of those they oppose. They lie, they denigrate, and will do just about anything to ruin a person’s reputation. She was quite upset about it. In her next breath she started complaining about the likes of John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and RINOS who were out to doom the conservative movement. She did nothing but denigrate and lie about Lindsey.

In other words, it is okay to destroy a “RINO” if you are a pure conservative who is trying to keep the party pure. Protecting the country doesn’t matter as much as purity and ideology. If this is what conservatives are up to, then they don’t give a damn about the fate of the country, only their personal agenda.

I gather Laura Ingraham, Michelle Malkin, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, etc. are only interested in their “pure” agenda, and aren’t interested in recapturing the House and Senate from the Dems. If they did, they would use some rational thinking and realize a majority is more important than purity. Only FOOLS demand purity.

The War for the Conservative Soul Has Begun

Share

You’ve called down the thunder, and now you’ve got it.”
Kurt Russell as Wyatt Earp in Tombstone

Pink Flamingo readers know I’ve taken the side of Charles Johnson at LGF when it comes to Robert Stacy McCain and his little friends. I think Johnson is over the top on a few things, but he is 100% right on when it comes to exposing the vile, corrupt, racist, filth that is festering within certain ranks of the conservative far right.

Now AJ Strata, one of the great voices of reason has joined the war, for indeed it is a war.

“…But when I look at what The Other McCain has written over time, I find myself repulsed well beyond my moral limits of tolerance. Anyone who thinks “race” verses “human beings” is off track. Way off track. And anyone who defends slavery is plain insane. LGF noted a detailed analysis of McCain blathering which has pushed me to the point I must make a public stand. Some disturbing excerpts of the thinking of a sick mind:…”

It is a war for the conservative soul and a war to preserve the GOP and wrestle it back from the minions of the likes of Robert Stacy McCain, Pat Buchanan, Peter Brimelow, Michelle Malkin, Bay Buchanan, and Glenn Beck. I think Lindsey fired the opening shots a couple of weeks ago, and now the conservative world is taking sides.

Reasonable conservatives know the difference from right and wrong. They know the difference between an agenda of hate, actual criticism, honesty. The problem is the fact that personal expediency sometimes gets in the way of doing what is right.

Instead of standing up for what is right, we are dealing with thousands of lemming conservatives who evidently take their marching orders from people who are connected to some very nasty agendas. Until we manage to limit the influence of these people, being a “conservative” is akin to nothing more than a bad joke.

If these people and their agendas are not marginalized, once again, we are going to lose entire groups of voters, the way we did Hispanics.

I’m beginning to wonder if these people are “conservative” at all, but rather working hand in hand with liberals to destroy the country. Sure looks that way.

I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of it. When I see someone who is trying to manipulate and promote an agenda that is “hate” I call them on it. No one cares, but if we can reach a person every once in awhile, maybe we can defeat these yahoos.

Michelle Malkin writes for Vdare.
Vdare features regular articles by the following:
Jarrod Taylor of American Renaissance
Pat Buchanan, who also is featured in World Nut Daily
Steven Sailer
Vdare is the brainchild of Peter Brimelow
Peter Brimelow’s identical twin brother, John, was once the leader of the National Socialist Party.

Both Coombs and his wife are also close friends with William White.
Both Combs and RSM were leading figures at the WTimes.
They are all puppets of John Tanton, who is one of the most staunch pro-abortion and pro-eugenics advocates in the world.

There is one thing this bunch has in common. They all claim to worship Reagan, who would turn his back on them if he were still here. They detest John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and George W. Bush. They do their level best to denigrate and destroy the GOP.

Are Conservative Lies Better Than Liberal Lies?

Share

When a conservative lies about someone conservatives are angry with, does that make the lie acceptable?

The Pink Flamingo is being hammered at another site for leaving a comment calling down a SC writer, Nancy Morgan for lying about Lindsey Graham. Some may look at what Morgan did as a sin of omission, but the object of her inaccurate reporting was to slander a man’s good name and destroy his reputation.

If Morgan had said that conservatives who do not identify themselves with the GOP and were members of the Libertarian and Constitution Party were determined to hold an elected Republican official to task, it would ruin the whole purpose of her article.

“…Graham has come to exemplify the growing disconnect between conservatives and the Republican Party. He believes he knows best, and if the people that elected him disagree, he tells them to just “chill out,” as he did at a recent townhall meeting in Greenville. The same townhall meeting where one of his constituents called him a traitor.

That townhall received little media attention. What did receive national media coverage was Graham’s recent interview where he attacked Glenn Beck, the left’s favorite target. “Glenn Beck does not represent the thinking of the Republican Party,” Graham stated. How he knows this is a mystery, as he went on to say he never watches the Glenn Beck Show. Go figure.

Graham may be right about one thing: Glenn Beck clearly represents the thinking of conservatives, not the GOP. And Sen. Lindsey Graham is now willingly spouting the talking points of the left and abandoning the conservative principles that got him elected. He has been seduced by the left and his reward is ever more national face time and political influence….”

From the Greenville News:

“…Whether they represent a vocal minority or the seeds of a serious election challenge for Graham remains to be seen, though at least one Republican consultant believes the state’s senior senator has “real problems” outside of just a raucous town hall meeting.

“If he were running right now, he’d be in serious trouble,” said Dave Woodard, a Clemson University political science professor and former campaign manager for Graham who said he has Upstate polling to support his view.

Graham, re-elected last year to another six-year term, flatly rejected that idea, describing the crowd at his town hall meeting this week as 40 percent Constitution Party members who themselves are about to spark a “backlash” because of the recent visibility of their “radical” views.

“They’re a political fringe group,” Graham told The Greenville News. “They believe that Medicare is unconstitutional and student loans are unconstitutional. I’m the conservative in the room.”…”

What it respresents is a serious problem for the GOP and reasonable Republicans in general. If these extremists cannot be revealed for who and what they are, they are going to end up costing us the House in 2010. If this happens, don’t blame the GOP for the destruction of this nation as we know it, blame conservatives.

Want to know how a non-conservative sees things?

“…Graham, who scored a full 100 percent rating from Americans for Tax Reform in 2007, is also under attack because he voted for Sonia Sotomayor for the Supreme Court and recently insisted that “birthers” are crazy. Graham then went on “Fox News Sunday” and made the mistake of saying that he didn’t believe that Glenn Beck represented the Republican Party. Graham implied that Beck believed that the “country’s best days are behind us.” On his radio show, Beck played the clip of Graham on Fox and then railed against the South Carolina senator, lumping him in with other enemies:

“Yeah, the best days. The best days are behind for Lindsey Graham, you bet. David Brooks, Lindsey Graham , all of these people. Nancy Pelosi, all on both sides. On both sides. Katie Couric, Brian Williams, all of them. All of them. Anybody who’s playing this game, your best days are behind you.”

In only a week Graham has become a central target for the group called RINO Hunters that protested his appearance in Greenville. For those new to intraconservative sectarian warfare, RINO stands for Republicans In Name Only. A member of the RINO Hunter organization is featured in the video of the Lindsey Graham event. A man sets up a RINO Hunter sign on his pickup truck along with a mannequin head first in an actual toilet to simulate a swirly. The man says that it represents the way he would like to punish those he considers RINOs….”

LIES AND LIARS

I don’t like lies. I do not like people who lie and have no compassion or tolerance for them. I don’t care if the person doing the lying is Barack Obama, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, or Ronald Reagan himself. If I catch a lie and I can do something about it, I do.

Funny thing about lies and conservatives. They apparently only hold Democrats accountable. If a conservative lies, mis-represents, stretches the truth, or fails to tell the important parts of a story – it’s all for the “cause”.

A few months ago Pink Flamingo friend and confidant, Sally Vee introduced me to the lectures and teachings of Rabbi Daniel Lapin. Even though both of us are dedicated Christians, we’ve come to understand Lapin’s comment that everyone needs a rabbi! It has been quite awhile since the teachings of any religious figure have had such a profound effect on the very way I live my life and the way I look at life.

Several weeks ago I listened to his short CD on the Ten Commandments. I thought I knew what they were all about, but by the time the CD had ended, I received new insight into why things are the way that they are. According to the Rabbi, the reason the Ten Commandments are presented side by side, five on one side of a tablet and five on the other is that there is a correlation between the Laws that are side by side.

The one I’m interested in is good old #9 – You are not to lie about someone, especially in a court of law. What I found interesting about Rabbi Lapin’s interpretation is the fact that when you lie about a person, you are literally stealing their good name. You are stealing their reputation, damaging it, possibly destroying it beyond redemption.

There have been two instances where lies have caused irreperable harm and heart-breaking damage to my life. The first monsterous lie destroyed my reputation in the eyes of my grandparents and caused both my sister and I to be disheerated from our grandparents’ estate. The reason? Someone told my grandmother that my sister and I were involved in some very nasty immoral activities. We were never given the opportunity to face our accuser and fight for our reputations.

The second great lie happened in the spring of 2001. Someone I thought was a friend began spreading lies about me to the man I was to marry. Her lies destroyed that. The lies enabled him to undertake a debauched life-style that has ruined him. There is nothing left but a pathetic shell of a man who believed every nasty thing said about me. Yes, I was fortunate to discover his lack of faith in me before we were married, but my sense of self, well being, and my self-confidence have never truly recovered.

Those same lies ruined my best friend. She and her son moved to the other part of the state, returning only for her father’s funeral. I was driven away from mutual friends as the Princess of Lies continued to spin her wretched web of hate. The only solace is one person who heard the lies and believed them had a change of heart. Our relationship has never been the same, but he heard the worst about me and realized it was not true.

I was hurt so badly by those lies my entire life has changed. Rationally, I know what was done was not true and I know most of why it was done. But – the psychological scars are still there, and are still raw. When I encounter someone spreading tales or half-truths, or manipulating the truth about someone I know and consider a friend, having been on the recieving end of such things, I fight back.

You can’t go around spreading tales and abusing someone who does not deserve the treatment and remain unscathed. What goes around comes around. Look at what is happening to Rush Limbaugh. He has been vicious when it comes to attacking good decent Republicans like Lindsey and John McCain. Limbaugh set the standard for how conservatives treat Republicans. I do not approve of the lies that have been told about him. They are wrong. They are lies and the people who are doing it should be held accountable. Same thing holds true for conservatives who do nothing but denigrate our good elected Republicans. They need to be held accountable for the problems they are creating.

They need to learn how to tell the truth. They also need to open their eyes, wake up, smell the coffee, and see what is going on out in the world. The very same sources who lied about and denigrated Reagan are up to it again. Only now they are dealing with conservatives who are so – stupid – culturally ilterate, and so pathetic, these people don’t know the difference.

When the far right lied about Reagan, Republicans basically turned their back on these people. It’s time they do the same thing – again. If Rasmussen’s latest poll is correct, Huckabee & Romney have the upper hand for 2012. Neither man is far right. Romney is rather moderate, and Huck is not considered a very strong conservative. They are pulling nearly 60% of the polling.

The GOP is a center right party. It is not extreme. It is not the party for extremes. If we want to retake the house in 2010 we need to offer strong, center right candidates. Far right candidates rarely win. We also need to take the rational approach that someone who will win in Midland, Texas cannot possibly be elected in West Palm Beach. To demand 100% conservative purity is just plain stupid, short sighted, and is a death wish for our nation.

To compound the problem by lying about our good Republicans, and manipulating what they stand for and who they are because they do not meet a narrow minded version of “purity” is just plain criminal.

Do people who make these demands actually want to defeat the Dems or do they want to remain in a minority status forever, damning our country to socialist ruin?

Conservative Lies Are Good – Liberal Lies Are Bad – Right?

Share

America is not only worth fighting for, it’s worth getting criticized for.”
Lindsey Graham

Would someone please tell me the difference between liberals spreading lies about Rush Limbaugh and conservatives spreading lies about Lindsey Graham? Oh, Graham isn’t pure so he deserves it, right? As long as the person is someone the Tea Party People dislike (and they take their marching orders from Ron Paul Bots) then they can lie all they want. But – don’t tell anyone they are lying. They are 100% pure conservative. Anyone who isn’t deserves to be lied about and destroyed – just the way the liberals are trying to destroy Rush.

It’s a Tea Party Problem.

The Pink Flamingo is using the current far far far far far right, Ron Paul Bot, Tea Party attack on Lindsey as an example of the problems we are facing within the GOP.

We have a problem within conservative circles. Things are getting nasty. We’re starting to be barraged by a group of far right writers, bloggers, and columnists who don’t give a durn about the truth, and would rather lie to promote their anti-Republican agenda. They’ve reached the point where honor and principle have nothing to do with their agenda, only their version of “truth” which has nothing to do with actual provable fact.

American Thinker has joined the ranks of the idiot right with the publication of a reprehensible hit piece on Lindsey by far right nut-job Nancy Morgan. She talks a good game, but anyone who writes for World Nut Daily can’t be very reliable, can they?

Morgan writes the following:

“…Lindsey Graham was elected to serve as United States Senator in 2002. He was easily re-elected in 2008, largely due to the support of conservatives. Conservatives like founder and past president of the low country’s South Strand Republicans, John Bonsignor. John and his wife campaigned hard for Graham, based on their belief that Graham would govern as a conservative. Meaning, lower taxes and less government.

“Graham is disappointing,” states Bonsignor, “He campaigned as a conservative but his record is moderate left.” When asked if he would vote for Graham now, Bonsignor stated emphatically, “No,” citing Lindsey’s support for Sotomayor, his support for TARP funds, and the final straw, his support for cap and trade…”

Since when was a 90% ACU rating “moderate left”.

Maybe conservatives need to start telling the truth and quit lying about things….?

The problem with conservatives like Morgan is the fact that they cannot tell actual facts that are proven to be correct. There is a difference between “truth” and “fact”. Truth is in the eye of the beholder. Fact can be proven correct or incorrect. Morgan is spreading facts that have no bases in fact. She is telling lies about Lindsey. The worst of it is the fact that Flopping Aces, one of the finest conservative sites, has picked up her pack of lies and is in the process of spreading them. (Morgan is one of those idiots who voted for Ross Perot, thereby costing GHWB a 2nd term – good conservative – idiot).

Her lies are being picked up and spread. Because she is saying something ugly about Lindsey, no one is bothering to fact check her.

Very few Republicans seem to have the courage to go after Ron Paul, Ron Paul Bots, the far far far far far Right, Libertarians (not Libertarian Republicans), and other nut case third party idiots who are dragging down the GOP. Lindsey is one of those few. Naturally Ron Paul is not amused.

Fortunately people such as Ron Paul and his Bots are being recognized as the “fringe“. The problem is they make so much noise and so dominate the blogsphere and radiosphere that NORMAL Republicans don’t have a prayer of being heard. Fortunately, along with Lindsey, we have one other great Republican voice of reason – Michael Medved.

The fascinating, and dirty little secret about all of this is you will rarely find a NORMAL Republican who criticizes Lindsey. The only ones who truly dislike him, other than Rush, are NOT Republicans. They hate Lindsey with a passion, that is at a boiling point because Lindsey tells the truth when it comes to Ron Paul and their outlandish worship of a man who truly deserves to be put out to pasture before he destroys the country.

“…It is this lack of integrity and principle on display right now. Graham is the worst of the lot. Integrity, honesty, and principle are the ideological fuel to grow the Republican Party. That is the fuel of Ron Paul. Utilizing the Lindsey Graham infested fuel has already been attempted and failed….”

Michael Tomasky from the UK Guardian seems to think those who consider Lindsey a “traitor” are basically unhinged. I agree. The real problem is the Ron Paul Bots, the Glenn Beck idiots, and the far far far far far right is being called down for their outlandish, stupid, and unreasonable behavior that could end up costing us dearly in 2010. These people aren’t interested in their country. They are followers, interested in worshipping and promoting someone who salves their pathetic little egos. They are fringe cult-like conspiracy nuts. They need to be marginalized before they do further damage to the country.

The Cults of Barack Obama and Ronald Reagan

Share

The liberal worship of Barack Obama and the conservative worship of Ronald Reagan is much the same thing. There is one big difference, though. When Ronald Reagan was POTUS, the same conservatives who today claim to have been his biggest supporters were some of his greatest critics. There’s one other little difference. The Cult of Reagan did not develop until long after he was no longer in office.

There is one other major difference. While there are those of us in the GOP who cringe at the constant abuse and mis-use of The Gipper’s name and legacy, especially via those who were the first to cast stones to destroy him while POTUS, you will need to search the country with a microscope to find a single conservative who worships him as a second coming, a messiah, or a golden idol.

Obama’s worshippers do not seem to have the ability to be able to tell the difference between a mortal human and a deity.

Reagan worshipers aren’t really worshiping Reagan. They are mouthing what their betters have told them. The problem with Obama worshipers is the fact that they have created a golden calf, an image of something that isn’t quite human.

The worst part of it is The One (Nobel) is doing nothing to dissuade this idol worship. He is enjoying every minute of it, which is absolutely terrifying.

Those who worship Reagan have a tendency to be following the lead of talking radio and TV heads. There is a perception of Reagan today that just IS NOT what Ronald Reagan actually was. This idolatry from the far right is something Reagan would absolutely detest.

The idolatry only goes so far. The “average” far right fan of Ronald Reagan falls under the “religious right” or Christian Conservative mantra. They accept that it is a violation of the Top Ten to worship anyone other than our Heavenly Father.

Unfortunately, the far left has a tendency to deny Christ.

It is a terrifying situation – for their eternal souls.

UPDATED: Lindsey Slams Libertarians & Ron Paul – Far Right Lies About Incident

Share

I love this party. I’m not going to be let it be hijacked by Ron Paul.”

lindsey

Funny how the far right doesn’t like Republicans who stand up for the GOP. I guess that says something, doesn’t it. The Palmetto Scoop covered the whole Monday Night Ron Paul, Constitution Party, Libertarian hate-fest. Naturally, the usual hate-Lindsey far right crowd will NOT tell the truth about what happened Monday night, which says a lot about them. Naturally Hot Air has managed to slam Lindsey while explaining about the entire event.

“...The knuckledragger brigade was out in full force Monday night at a health care reform town hall held by U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham at Furman University in Greenville.

During the 75-minute forum, the boisterous crowd grilled Graham for having common sense and not blindly following the rhetoric of right wing reactionaries.

At one point, an older woman stood up and made some prolonged statement about state’s rights and the Constitution while the crowd predictably cheered her on. The woman ranted at length about “unconstitutional, anti-Christ, socialist, federal, deficit-spending programs” and told Graham that “God does not compromise.” Whatever that means.

Graham responded by asking her how she’d voted for president, and –shockingly — she said she voted for Constitution Party wacko Chuck Baldwin. Also shockingly, nearly all of the ideologues in attendance gave a rambunctious round of applause.”…”

Now, the scuttlebutt about the incident, which was filmed, according to The Palmetto Scoop, by a Ron Paul Bot named Brian Frank, is the same jerk who caused trouble for Lindsey at the SC GOP State Convention last May. According to The Palmetto Scoop:

“…Interestingly, on his Facebook page, Frank lists his activities as “Sitting on my butt and collecting unemployment as long as I can!” Gee… what a surprise…”

Listen to the video, it is a thing of beauty. Lindsey tells them off, and pulls out the information that the people making all the problems are NOT Republicans.

“…One man told Graham he had “betrayed” conservatism and made a “pact with the devil” by working with Democrats, and asked when Graham would switch parties. Graham said he’s not going anywhere and instead would grow the party, defending his conservative credentials on such issues as abortion and guns, and calling the view of Libertarians who believe President Bush was a war criminal “nuts.” “We’re not going to be the party of angry white guys,” Graham said to more shouts. A woman who had been carrying a sign that condemned “unconstitutional, anti-Christ, socialist, federal, deficit-spending programs” told Graham “God does not compromise” and that he had violated his oath of office by supporting federal ideas, including health care reform that overstep states’ rights….”

He then called Libertarians “nuts”!

“…Despite being on the defensive much of the time, Graham held his ground on the issues, defending his conservative credentials as well as his support for the climate change bill. When asked about the view held by some Libertarians that President Bush committed war crimes, Graham didn’t mince words, calling the view “nuts.” His response garnered shouts and boos…”I’m not going to leave the Republican Party,” Graham said when one questioned asked him why he hasn’t yet joined the Democrats. “I’m going to grow it. We’re not going to be the party of angry white guys.”

His comments were met with a salvo of boos and shouts of “Ron Paul!”

“I love this party,” he responded. “I’m not going to be let it be hijacked by Ron Paul.”

Graham emphasized his conservative bona fides — particularly his record of opposing abortion rights and support of gun rights — but said GOP needs to build a broader coalition. Otherwise, he warned, those trying to purify the party will turn Congress over “to the most liberal people in the world because somebody disagrees with you.”

“I’m going to find people in Maine, Delaware, Illinois and other places that can win,” he said. “And I’m going to help them, and we’re going to move this party and this country forward. If you don’t like it, you can leave.””

The New Science Fiction View of American Soldiers

Share

This post is dedicated to my brother, LTC Floyd R. Harris, United States Army (retired – sort of)

If you have been a life long devotee of science fiction like The Pink Flamingo, you may be familiar with patterns within the genre. One of the mos fascinating insights into American society can be observed by watching the way the American military, soldiers, and former soldiers are treated. The same can be said of the movie/television genre in general, but science fiction is usually ahead of the trend.

john_wayne

At the end of World War II the American Soldier was the hero. He was Apple Pie, Jiltin’ Joe, and John Wayne all thrown into one great big hot dog with a flag and a fire-cracker for garnish. He could do no wrong. This same soldier protected us during the Cold War from the invasion of numerous alien hordes. By the mid-1960s things were taking a more sinister turn. Anti-war paranoia was in full spring. The American Soldier was now evil personified. He was a psychopathic baby killer, an object of paranoia and scorn, Rambo on a rampage.

rambo

The only point of light in this grim hatred of the American Soldier was the swaggering, macho, heroic James T. Kirk, who personified every great myth of American legend.

shatner_kirk04

Warping into the 1970s when films were a nightmare from hell, one memorable portrayal of the military was George Peppard’s cardboard stiff character in Damnation Alley. We blew ourselves into evolutionary oblivion with the Planet of the Apes series. Then George Lucus and Steven Spielberg single handedly saved the movies. But, the Force was not with the military, and the Empire was evil.

Glen Larson, who helped produce Star Trek Classic, wasn’t finished with the image of the American Soldier. Ronald Reagan was elected POTUS and a month later Thomas Sullivan Magnum single handedly began reforming the image of the former baby-killing Vietnam Vets. (sigh). Tom Selleck’s Republican leanings, Glen Larson, and Donald P. Bellisario began to reform the vile image of the American Soldier. Magnum, P. I. was a reflection of Ronald Reagan’s Republican spirit.

UPDATED: Lindsey Steps in It and the Extreme Right Tells The Usual Lies

Share

This is a lesson in the ways the far, far, far right tries to destroy a very good man. It is NOT about normal, decent conservatives, libertarians, and independents. It is about a handful of vile, nasty extreme right conservatives who have absolutely nothing to do with the Republican Party, but spent their venial time doing everything possibly to destroy, defame, and denigrate good, decent men and women who do not agree with them.

The real problem here is the fact that there is no differentiation between “conservative” and “Republican”. We automatically know that when we are dealing with “liberals”, a good 95% of them are Democrats. But – when we are dealing with the term “conservative” that is not the case at all. Most are either Republican or usually vote Republican, but there is a very vocal minority who basically control all things conservative online. They number in their midst some very powerful blogging voices who are regular commentators on FOX. A decent Republican doesn’t stand a chance – until Republicans get smart and start calling down the thunder.

Evidently the mantra of “drill baby drill” is not longer acceptable to the Far Right.

What’s wrong with building new nuclear power plants?

I thought energy independence was a good thing.

Evidently it is, but only if it is proposed by someone other than Lindsey Graham.

The irony here is that what he and John Kerry are proposing isn’t far from what Sarah Palin is advocating.

The real problem – Lindsey is not “pure” enough for the far right. The worst part of this – if Sarah Palin, Tim Pawlenty, Bobby Jindal, Mike Pence, Jim DeMint or even Ron Paul had proposed this the far right would be heralding the breakthrough as a way to defeat the far left.

First, The Pink Flamingo wants to go on record that we are dealing with climate change. I did NOT say global warming. I fear we are going to be hitting a period of global cooling due to the sun. If we experience one big volcanic eruption like Pinatubo, we’re looking at some serious global cooling – major cooling – another minor ice age. 405px-Pinatubo91eruption_clark_air_base There are several things in this life that are consistent. First, always count on Lindsey to throw a curve and step into a fast-ball at the same time. Second, Michelle Malkin is ALWAYS going to lie about his actions. Then trust all the usual little far right flunkies to pick up on her irrational hatred of him.

I can only imagine what Rush is going to do tomorrow.

They say the devil is in the details. If the usual suspects would bother reading the details, they might discover that Lindsey is NOT selling out their precious and somewhat irrational conservative cause that is increasingly costing us votes. But then no one ever accused Michelle Malkin of being a Republican. loghealth Sometimes it just gets plain annoying having to constantly support and defend a man who believes in standing up for something he thinks is right, defending him from the people who don’t possess a small percentage of his honesty and honor. Now though, Lindsey Graham has done the unpardonable….he penned an Op-Ed with John Kerry.

Who knew being a statesman was such a bad thing.

Then again, the far right knows very little about history, or they would know how the Senate actually works.

From The Hill:

“…The two senators wrote that they both agree on five basic premises: (1) climate change is real; (2) the U.S. should take an all-inclusive approach to renewable energy; (3) climate change represents an opportunity to ween the country off foreign oil; (4), climate legislation can’t and won’t cost American jobs; and (5) the bill will protect small businesses….”

Durn – I thought Malkin was conservative.

Obviously she and the usual suspects are once again responding with their usual knee-jerk reactionary far right, anti-GOP hate. Maybe a few of the usual suspects need to read what is really going on here.

I will admit, I was annoyed with Lindsey when I heard he was up to this. I trust him, so I know he is not going to betray our country. I was more annoyed because I’m going to be out there defending what he is going against the usual conservative lies.

Funny thing about lies, you tell them long enough and they are taken as truth. The irony of the fact is the very people who are demanding purity, a return to traditional values, and are constantly damning Obama for his lack of truthfulness. Factual accuracy is a funny thing. It works both ways.

I will be willing to wage my currently very stinky toy poodle that the following usual sources are NOT Republican.

Want to know the real difference between liberals and conservatives?

Liberals usually circle their wagons and stand up for one another.

Conservatives have absolutely no problem eating their own, then going after liberals. The problem is you can’t have it both ways and be intellectually honest, but then intellectual honest is not something the far far right deals with on a regular basis.

UPDATED: Nobel Prize Winner Obama and His Sharia Czar!

Share

UPDATED:
Barack Obama continues to follow in Jimmy Carter’s august footsteps.
Barack Obama is “humbled” by the win.

Does Barack Obama even know what “humble” is? Or as AJ Strata suggests, we are dealing with a new world cult of idiots?

ORIGINAL POST

The Naked Emperor has more admirers.

Has Barack Obama even once been to visit our injured troops? (Just asking) After all, he is bring peace to the world as he crashes our economy, our currency, and is turning his back on freedom and democracy.

Wonder what he will do for an encore. First, his Islamic czar thinks that Sharia Law is just misunderstood. Dalia Moghad made her remarks on a London TV show hosted by a member of the Hizb ut Tahrir Party. They believe in the non-violent destruction of Western Democracy and the creation of a world-wide Islamic State under Sharia Law.

What a change -Nobel Prize Winning Obama has a Czar promoting Sharia Law for one and all!

“…She said: “I think the reason so many women support Sharia is because they have a very different understanding of sharia than the common perception in Western media. “The majority of women around the world associate gender justice, or justice for women, with sharia compliance. “The portrayal of Sharia has been oversimplified in many cases.” Sharia in its broadest sense is a religious code for living, which decrees such matters as fasting and dressing modestly. However, it has also been interpreted as requiring the separation of men and women. It also includes the controversial “Hadd offences”, crimes with specific penalties set by the Koran and the sayings of the prophet Mohammed. These include death by stoning for adultery and homosexuality and the removal of a hand for theft. Miss Mogahed admitted that even many Muslims associated Sharia with “maximum criminal punishments” and “laws that… to many people seem unequal to women,” but added: “Part of the reason that there is this perception of Sharia is because Sharia is not well understood and Islam as a faith is not well understood.”

There are some men who are honorable, hold their heads up high, and do not sell their souls for popularity. They believe in freedom and democracy, Truth, Justice and the American Way.

The “World” proudly proclaims:

“…U.S. President Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday for giving the world “hope for a better future” and striving for nuclear disarmament….”Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world’s attention and given its people hope for a better future,” the committee said. “His diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world’s population.”

The committee said it attached special importance to Obama’s vision of, and work for, a world without nuclear weapons.

Unfair and Unbalanced

Share

One of the biggest canards in the “conservative” sphere is the idea that FOX News is fair and balanced. Once upon a time it might have been. But no longer. Not only have they abandoned (for the most part) the Democrats point of view but there is no longer even theefford made to present the Republican side of things. There are exceptions in the fair and balanced thing such as Neil Cavuto, Chris Wallace, Greta Van Susteren and Bret Baier but that’s about it. It looks like the only Republican who gets a fair shot these days is Mike Huckabee.

This morning, if what The Pink Flamingo saw is now SOP, the GOP is in serious trouble. Even more than that, any possibility of defeating Obama and theDems next year is simply a pipe dream. Now, not content to flaunt the Libertarian agenda of Glenn Beck FOX anchors are involved in outright prevarications and obfuscation when it comes to what the GOP is doing.

Four Years of Blogging

Share

ThePinkFlamingoLogo

The Pink Flamingo went on line at the old site on October 4, 2005. There is no way I will even copy the first post it was so pathetic, not that it isn’t still pathetic. During those four years the world has changed.

When The Pink Flamingo began blogging my main promise was to support the Republican Party and be as honest as I possibly could. This has not changed. Conservatives have changed. There is a tendency online for conservatives to be more irrational and more extreme. I’ve seen that Libertarian Party infusion I’ve been fearing step in and attempt to hijack the party. Thanks to those same Losertarians good, decent Republicans are now damning George W. Bush and worshiping a seriously disturbed Libertarian demigod who knows when to turn on the tears.

Today I am far more pessimistic than I was four years ago. This pessimisim is not about Barack Obama, who is on the way to becoming comic relief. The pessimism I see is the constant attack on good Republicans by Libertarians who have no shame, no honor, and no decency. Lying about their conservative leanings, these anti-war, conspiracy believing, nuts are marching lock-step with their fearless leaders like Ron Paul and a few others, taking our country over a cliff.

Now They’re Trashing Palin’s “Ghost Author”

Share

Have you noticed that the Democrats and the media under the Chicago style of Barack Obama act more like something out of the Godfather than actual political realities. You do what we want or we make you an offer you can’t refuse. Say, you want to keep those knee-caps?

Mob rule is at it again, this time going after Sarah Palin’s co-author, trying to destroy her as a warning to anyone else who might want to take a job working for another high powered Republican. They are also trying to warn off anyone who might want to work with Sarha Palin at a later date.

NOTE TO DEMOCRATS: Get a life.

d413db53-8b21-4457-bb8d-9b6a07c6a30f.widecThe monsters of the hit, both far right and far left never stop. There’s not much difference in them, either. I think the big difference is with the elected officials. Republicans bend over backwards to be nice, decent, have good manners, and seriously take our Founding Fathers and the Constitution seriously.

Lindsey Unloads on Glenn Beck!

Share

“…Talk radio, MoveOn.org, the 24-hour news cycle makes it very hard to reach across the aisle,” Graham said. It gets polarized. Can you imagine doing D-Day with cable television? Can you imagine writing the Constitution — you know, O’Reilly says Ben Franklin’s giving in on something. Can you imagine having to do that in this environment?…”Do I want some of his policies to fail? You better believe it. Do I want him to fail? No, because he’s my president,” Graham said. “If he fails in Afghanistan, if he fails in Iran, my country fails.“…”

Finally, someone is unloading on Glenn Beck. Naturally it would be Lindsey, and naturally this will be a declaration of war. This is so much fun! Lindsey is saying what most of us are already thinking.
