Glenn Beck Don’t Know Much About History

Glenn Beck’s astonishing ignorance when it comes to history is going to get him into serious trouble. The Pink Flamingo has repeated this, repeatedly. Could be, now that he and David Duke are promoting the same anti-Semitic author, he could be in trouble. Nah, isn’t going to happen.

This is very nasty stuff, and Beck continues to get a pass. One of these days he will go too far.

GOP Leadership Factor NM v. SC

If web sites say anything, take a look at the SCGOP site Karen Floyd is using and the NM site Harvey Yates uses.

Why won’t Nikki Haley take Andre Bauer up on his offer of a lie-detector test? If I were in her position I would do it and grand-stand all the way – if I were innocent.

Evidently SC’s GOP Chair Karen Floyd is MIA. Either that or she is, as The Pink Flamingo has stated numerous times, totally and completely incompetent. Right now some of the nastiest stuff I’ve seen in a long time is going down in SC and she is not stepping in to stop it. We are seeing what is basically a civil war between Nikki Haley and Andre Bauer. One of them is telling the truth and one of them isn’t. Bauer has offered to take a lie detector test. Haley continues to blame him for all of her problems.

Is FOX News THAT Stupid?

On Thursday morning, the anchors at FOX News were expressing outrage that CA Congresswoman Linda Sanchez had the nerve to accuse the AZ SB 1070’s authors of links to FAIR. She also accused FAIR of being populated by white supremacists! The problem is the fact that Linda Sanchez is correct, and FOX News is wrong. Then again, FOX News appears never to have met a Tanton shill they don’t like.

FAIR is a hate group.

Was Arthur C. Clarke Right – Again?

Arthur C. Clark, that great visionary always thought that life would be discovered on the moon, Europa. Titan will do in a pinch – but an odd one.

Titan is one of the most inhopitable “worlds” in the solar system.

“…Scientists had expected sunlight interacting with chemicals in the atmosphere to produce acetylene that falls down to coat Titan’s surface. But Cassini detected no acetylene there. Experts warn that there could be other explanations for the results. But taken together, they fulfil two important conditions necessary for methane-based life to exist. Nasa astrobiologist Chris McKay said: ‘If these signs do turn out to be a sign of life, it would be doubly exciting because it would represent a second form of life independent from water-based life on Earth.’ Scientists believe that when the Sun swells up, swallowing Earth, conditions could be ideal on a warmer Titan. Professor John Zarnecki, of the Open University, said: ‘We believe the chemistry is there for life to form. It just needs heat and warmth to kick-start the process.

PPP’s Very Dirty Poll Against Lindsey –

The extreme right and the losertarian crowd is ticked with Lindsey. Why?

“…Graham is a tough partisan, and he was making a point about the future of the GOP, which he thinks needs younger people in its ranks. Crucially, he also believes that lowering the risk to the planet and the human race from climate change qualifies as a conservative cause. His exhortation, if taken to heart, could prompt Republicans and Democrats to compete for young, environmentally conscious voters. At a time of partisan squabbling, that would benefit us all. Beyond the political stakes, there are existential ones. Today’s citizens and leaders are not only the first generation to realize that we are living in the era of global warming. We could also be the last that has a chance of slowing and eventually reversing the process….”

As the Stomach Turns – SC Double-Stardards Edition

When a second man comes forward, either someone is really annoyed with Nikki Haley or there is something to the story?

Currently, Nikki Haley is the recipient of the last bastion of Southern manners and chivalry. Because she is a woman, the man are giving her a break. She is being treated like a frail, fragile, flower of womanhood, pure, never to be dirtied. It doesn’t matter if she is guilty or innocent. It is about the new political double standard.

Are women better than men?

Yet Another George W. Bush Was Right!

On Monday I heard Karl Rove say something that brought tears to my eyes. He said when he goes through airports and encounters members of our military, they ask him to tell the former President how much they miss him.

Remember how Obama made fun of The Great Man’s post 9/11 statement that we do the patriotic thing and shop? Seems like The Great Man is a heck of a lot smarter than Obama. We are consumer based economy. If we do not shop, the economy flops!

Steve Pearce Memorial Day Message

The New Mexico primaries are tomorrow. The Pink Flamingo thinks this is a great time for a final plug for Steve Pearce.

“…I wanted to take this opportunity as we to reflect on what we are actually celebrating on Memorial Day. It is truly a great time to reflect and recognize not only the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect and defend our country in the past, but also a time to remember that we still have many young Americans in harms way around the world.

We honor those who have given what Lincoln called “that last full measure of devotion” to protect our nation.

As someone who has had the honor of serving our country, I know firsthand the dangers our brave servicemen and servicewomen have faced in defending our freedom around the world. Sometimes, people take for granted the great freedoms we enjoy but we must never forget those brave patriots who made the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of our country. We also must remember to honor our commitments to the Veterans who have come home yet still need our help. Remember them also.

Part II: Why Haley’s Comet Is Bad for the Tea Parties

Have you noticed something that The Pink Flamingo recently discovered? Tea Party supporters are quite willing to cannibalize their own, lie about it, and kick them over a cliff. Tea Party leaders are idiots. Sorry, but that’s how The Pink Flamingo sees ’em.

SC’s bad boy blogger Will Folks was one of the very first people to promote the Tea Parties. He went above and beyond, even pulling a nasty got-ya on Gresham, a really nasty one. Folks goes after everyone BUT Nikki Haley. He has been consistent in his support of her, often to the detriment of other candidates.

BUT – did Sarah Palin bother to do her homework when denigrating Folks (who deserves every bit of it for past nonsense – but maybe not for this one)?

Did Erick Erickson bother doing his?

Hayworth’s Nasty Cronies Have Crossed the Line

For years The Pink Flamingo has been telling you how vile Peter Brimelow and his Vdare associates are.

I am an unabashed fan of John McCain. I think he is one of our greatest living Americans. For horrid, white supremacists like Peter Brimelow and his slime to denigrate a great man like McCain is deplorable. Then again, they are the slime below the pond scum.

David Frum wrote:

“...Allegations are not new that he campaigned against investigations and disclosures that the U.S. abandoned missing prisoners at the end of the Vietnam War, but the reports had no traction and were largely ignored.That they have arisen again, seems largely because McCain is in a serious fight to retain the Arizona Senate Seat that he’s held since 1986. The threat is not from a Democratic contender, but from the right — ultra-conservative J.D. Hayworth whom admirers describe as a “patriotic immigration reformer,” and critics call “one of the ten dumbest members of Congress.”

Why Haley’s Comet Is Bad for Tea Parties & Conservatives

How long are the tea party people going to be held unaccountable for their stupidity and their problematic endorsements which are going to hurt the GOP?

The Pink Flamingo does not believe in out of state, primary endorsements. It is ruinous to the GOP.

We also have a problem of the egos. Jim DeMint is out for Jim DeMint. Erick Erickson is his little flunkie. DeMint has “officially” stayed out of the ongoing war in SC, but his flunkie is defending Haley. Mitt Romney, along with blogger Will Folks were early Haley supporters. Palin jumped on the bangwagon a few weeks ago. We all know these endorsements are payback for previous endorsements. It is the way the game is played. BUT – DeMint and Palin are making fools of themselves choosing the most “conservative” candidate, not exactly looking for the more stable and qualified candidate. Haley is NOT qualified to be the Governor of SC nor is Rand Paul fit to serve in the US Senate.

Why Are So Many Tea Party Candidates So Pathetically Flawed?

Jim DeMint and Sarah Palin are promoting tea party candidates and cultivating themselves as “king makers”. We have a little problem with this. Have you noticed how many of the tea party candidates are extremely flawed?

We know Jim DeMint is using the entire process for his personal goals.

“…”The Kentucky primary seemed more about handing Mitch McConnell a loss . . . than handing Republicans a win,” says Melissa Clouthier, a conservative blogger for LibertyPundits.net. “It was clear before he was elected, that Rand Paul’s positions would be attacked by the Democrats, and I wonder if this obvious reality entered into any strategic thinking on Jim DeMint’s part.”

Wednesday’s Hero – Capt. Kyle Comfort

Capt. Kyle Comfort

3rd Battalion,
75th Ranger Regiment

U.S. Army

Kyle Comfort had just recently been promoted to Captain and been assigned to a Ranger Regiment in the Army. His accomplishments as a Soldier, in such a short time, were a testament to the fact that he was an excellent Soldier.

Unfortunately, in this war, it doesn’t make a lot of difference how good you are at your job. The difference seems to be left to chance. Where you are sitting in your vehicle or which vehicle you are sitting in when you hit an IED or where you are standing on your FOB when the mortars come in. All chance and circumstance.

J. D. Hayworth Once Voted One of the Dumbest Members of Congress

You do realize that the latest polling has McCain up a good 20 points over Dumb as Dirt. There is probably a very good reason for that!

“...McCain advisors say their polling finds many Arizona voters don’t consider Hayworth an entirely serious candidate; obviously, a Web ad that tags him as dumb seems to play directly into that. When Hayworth served in the House, he often came off as a blowhard, portentously calling for over-the-top legislation on immigration and border control without actually getting any of it done. That helped Democrat Harry Mitchell beat him in 2006 in a marginal district (that, and Hayworth’s ties to Jack Abramoff). The Arizona Republic called Hayworth a bully in endorsing Mitchell….The political climate this year is obviously pretty dire for incumbents, including in primaries; just ask Bob Bennett or Arlen Specter. But Hayworth isn’t even getting the Tea Party support some Republican challengers have. Clearly, Hayworth isn’t breaking through to voters the way other GOP insurgents did — McCain is still up by 20 points in the polls, despite his long Washington résumé in a year when that won’t help you. Maybe soon he’ll realize that….”

Fun & Games in South Carolina

Does any state have as much fun with politics as South Carolina? First Mark Sanford went hiking the Appalachian Trail (down Argentine Way) and now allegedly his hand-picked protege, and Sarah Palin blessed Nikki Haley is in trouble.

You need a score-card with this one.

SC’s Bad Boy of Blogging, Will Folks drives The Pink Flamingo crazy because I think he is so seriously anti-Lindsey that he is irrational. Then again there are those in SC who make the argument that he is irrational anyway. He announced that he and Nikki Haley had had a Read More

J. D. Hayworth – Idiot For Senate

J. D. Hayworth has crossed the line, jumped the shark, gone off the deepend, someone put a fork in him, he’s done.

“…”In a give and take session with members of an audience, Congressman Hayworth was asked about the current conflicts the U.S. is engaged in. He said that the United States did not declare war on Germany during World War II, and agreed with the gentleman asking the question that additional research might be needed. Hayworth instructed his researcher to look into it and we found that on Dec. 11, 1941, Germany declared war on the United States and President Roosevelt wrote ‘I therefore request the Congress to RECOGNIZE a state of war between the United States and Germany and between the United States and Italy.'”..”

How the Tea Party Libertarians Will Destroy the GOP this November

INSULTING MINORITIES EVERYWHERE

Perception is everything. Because of the far right libertarian extreme populated by Michelle Malkin, Rand Paul, and the anti-immigration freaks, we’ve in danger of completely losing the Hispanic vote for several generations. The GOP was finally making inroads with African American voters. Now, opening his bigoted nasty mouth, Rand Paul destroys what we have been trying to create since Nixon. The more conservatives attempt to defend their little libertarian darling, the worse mess they are creating.

Libertarians, Tea Party “Patriots” and Christian Morality

Charles Johnson of LGF is an athiest. He is a proud athiest. He wrote something quite profound on Saturday, that makes me wonder just how “athiest” he actually is. What is ironic is the fact that it has taken a self-professed athiest, who is dis-heartened with the far right extremes to completely explain the problem with libertarians. They have no humanity.

“…One thing the nomination of Rand Paul has definitely achieved — it’s showing Americans just how far out of mainstream thought libertarians are. Libertarians like Rand Paul and his father Ron are absolutists, and any form of political absolutism is profoundly anti-human. hat’s why Rand Paul can say “accidents happen” about the BP disaster — because he has no empathy at all for the millions of people whose lives will be affected by it. It’s the same reason why he is an anti-abortion fanatic, despite his lip service to libertarianism — because he has no empathy for human beings. His ideology rules his world view, and human beings play a very small part in it….”

Have you read anything about the life of the patron saint of libertarianism, Ayn Rand? She was a vile, repulsive, almost evil woman who had basically no human decency and no scruples. She had no morality. She believed in a ruthless Darwinian theology of dog eat dog, survival of the fittest, and destroy anyone who got in your way. She once wrote:

“…What is the moral code of altruism? The basic principle of altruism is that man has no right to exist for his own sake, that service to others is the only justification of his existence, and that self-sacrifice is his highest moral duty, virtue and value.

Do not confuse altruism with kindness, good will or respect for the rights of others. These are not primaries, but consequences, which, in fact, altruism makes impossible. The irreducible primary of altruism, the basic absolute, is self-sacrifice—which means: self-immolation, self-abnegation, self-denial, self-destruction—which means: the self as a standard of evil, the selfless as a standard of the good.

Do not hide behind such superficialities as whether you should or should not give a dime to a beggar. That is not the issue. The issue is whether you do or do not have the right to exist without giving him that dime. The issue is whether you must keep buying your life, dime by dime, from any beggar who might choose to approach you. The issue is whether the need of others is the first mortgage on your life and the moral purpose of your existence. The issue is whether man is to be regarded as a sacrificial animal. Any man of self-esteem will answer: “No.” Altruism says: “Yes.”…”

The more I think about it, the more certain I am that libertarians have a very hard time practicing the teachings of Christ. A few weeks ago some idiot conservative did this blog mime saying that Christ was conservative. I guess who ever came up with that stupid idea has not actually read the teachings of Christ, which were revolutionarily liberal for the time. Then again, it helps to have a back ground in Roman history to know how revolutionary and how liberal Christ actually was.

Then again, if you are a Tea Party Patriot and rebelling against the tax man, perhaps you are rebelling against the teachings of Christ. Remember that “render unto Caesar…”? The question was about paying taxes, not paying them, and rebelling against the status quo. Christ said we pray for those who lead and opprss us. Then again, Christ took the tax man out to dinner, converted him, and turned him into a Desciple – Matthew.

I kept wondering what bothered me about the Tea Party “patriots” and libertarians. Now I know.

The Pink Flamingo is basically a cynic when it comes to people, human nature, and people doing the “right” thing. Human nature is a very dark, cruel and of-times vicious thing. So is business. Even more so for “big” business. What separates us from the animals and from the worst aspects of our nature is the goodness that comes only from the Grace of God. There is an inherent goodness in our Judeo-Christian belief that has never been duplicated in human history.

VERY LONG: More Dem Sell-Outs for NASA

“…We know 1,000 times more about the Moon than we did during Apollo. But there is so much we don’t know. There may be valuable minerals or other materials that could be useful for permanent settlements. I do think there’s value in going to the surface. There’s also value in using the Moon as a staging point for other exploration. We can learn in lunar regions many of the things that are unknown or undeveloped needed for planetary travel such as radiation exposure but still be able to get out of real trouble since earth is a short distance away. That’s why the Moon should be considered an important part…” Neil Armstrong

Space Politics has something that is sickening. During the hearings last week, David Rockefeller proved that he was not a supporter of a strong space program.

“...ROCKERFELLER – Turns out that Senator Rockefeller is not a strong supporter of human space flight. We went to space in the 1960’s to do new things and we did them. He states though that he wants to understand the value of human space flight.

The Great Rand Paul Lies – Pre Maddox Interview

“..Rand Paul’s victory in the Kentucky Republican primary is obviously a depressing event for those who support strong national defense and rational conservative politics. In another year, such a victory would be a prelude to a Republican defeat in the general election….”

Rand Paul Should Withdraw From Race – IMMEDIATELY

“…’I unequivocally state that I will not support any efforts to repeal the Civil Rights Act of 1964…we are sure to hear more wild, dishonest smears during this campaign,’ Paul campaign statement says…””…“A free society will abide unofficial, private discrimination,” wrote Paul, “even when that means allowing hate-filled groups to exclude people based on the color of their skin. It is unenlightened and ill-informed to promote discrimination against individuals based on the color of their skin. It is likewise unwise to forget the distinction between public (taxpayer-financed) and private entities.“…” Rand Paul

Ron Paul on “Forced” Intergration

When Ron Paul was asked about his son’s gaff, this is what happened:

“…Asked by a reporter if Rand Paul’s campaign could “recover” from his comments, Ron Paul said there was nothing to recover from, and the suggestion that there is was “an insult.”

What does he have to recover from?” Paul said. “Go to Kentucky and talk to the people. He’s just had a referendum; gets 59 percent of the vote and you are talking about recovering? That’s an insult.”

Why Does the Cato Institute Defend Pedophiles and Hate GWB?

The Cato Institute hates George W. Bush and Lindsey Graham, but it will bend over backward to defend pedophiles.

The Pink Flamingo keeps telling you how repulsive and immoral libertarians are. This proves it. This one hits home. I was talking to my mother about their defense of pedophiles. Thank God for George W. Bush. If this bill he signed – damning pedophiles to remain in prison – had been in effect when I was a child, I WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN MOLESTED by the pedophile who was released from prison because he had served his debt to society.

The SCOTUS upheld the Comstock ruling – thank heavens. Sexual predators may be held in prison, indefinitely – thereby protecting innocent children everywhere. The Cato Institute blames George W. Bush for protecting the innocence of children and damning preditory pedophiles to prison.

GOD BLESS GEORGE W. BUSH!
