“‘Drain the swamp’ means to turn this Congress into the most honest and open Congress in history. That’s my pledge — that is what I intend to do,” Democrat Speaker Elect Nancy Pelosi told NBC’s Brian Williams on 11/08/2006, the day after Democrats took control of the House of Representatives, while Bush would serve his last two years as president.
On 07/22/2010, the Swamp Creature from the Bleak Lagoon, Democrat Congressman Charles Rangel was charged with violations of House ethics rules after an investigation, stemming from allegations of misuse of rent-controlled New York apartments (4!), failing to report taxable rents on a villa in the Dominican Republic (for 8 years!) and an exchange of official favors for an oil drilling company (doesn’t Rangel know that Democrats don’t “do oil”?). Rangel, a close friend and ally of Nancy “Drain the Swamp” Pelosi, was in negotiations to “settle” these ethics allegations. How does one negotiate “ethics”?
Rangel is also the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee which is the chief tax-writing committee, and he claims that he was confused about the tax code? Imagine the confusion for the rest of the rank-and-file American taxpayer — who would face stiff fines and possible jailtime — if similiarly “confused.”
The next creature from the lagoon and probably, the best poster child of the Peter Principle is Democrat Congressman Barney Frank, who 20 years ago was reprimanded by the House for ethics violation involving his male lover running a house of ill repute from his home — among other salacious accusations (and unnecessary details).
In 2003 — 13 years after that and still in the House of Representatives — Frank was rewarded by his fellow Democrats and found himself the ranking Democrat on the Financial Services Committee where he opposed a Bush administration proposal to increase oversight and additional rules and regulations on Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, institutions that contributed heavily to Frank’s campaigns, declaring that they were fundamentally sound.
When the subprime mess in large part caused by political pressure on lending institutions to loan to unqualified borrowers, the system collapsed — but not the career of Barney Frank. Obama recently credited him (as well as fellow Democrat Senator Christopher Dodd) as the architect of the recently passed financial reform bill! Congratulations Mr. Barney Fox for redesigning the chicken coop!
Turning to the “open” part of Pelosi’s declaration of making Congress “the most honest and open Congress in history,” and in keeping with a campaign promise made by President Urkel Obama to make all legislation available to the public for review prior to passage, Queen Pelocchio pontificated that, “We Have to Pass the [Healthcare] Bill So That You Can Find Out What Is In It.” (Marie Antoinette: “Let them eat cake.” Nancy Pelosi: “Let them read bills — AFTER we pass them…”)
Nancy “Drain the swamp” Pelosi — instead of draining the swamp in Washington, D.C. — has turned the entire country into a swamp.

“You want freedom? You’re gonna have to kill some crackers! You’re gonna have to kill some of their babies!” So sayeth the peace-loving Minister King Samir Shabazz, the New Black Panther Party’s Philadelphia leader.
If this is the “new” and improved Black Panthers, what would the “old” Black Panthers have said? “Kill the Saltines and some of their oyster crackers to boot?” (At least that would be more crunchy and less messy.)
In the immortal words of Rodney King, “Can we all get along?”
Sugarpants Shabazz is also one of two hoodlums who were caught on video, swinging a club, outside a polling place in Philadelphia on November 4, 2008, allegedly hurling racial epithets at and intimidating both whites and blacks.
After a complaint for voter intimidation was filed against the two and the New Black Panther Party by the Justice Department, the judge ordered a default judgment against them after their refusal to appear in court. The case was done — a slam dunk victory by the Justice Department on behalf of the victims both white and black against the thugs…
…until Eric Holder, Obama’s Attorney General, withdrew the case. It’s so reassuring that we’re living in the “post-racial” era under President Urkel Hussein Obama.
Now, one does not need too much imagination to picture what would have happened if the racial elements of the story had been reversed.
The moral of the story apparently is that only whites can perpetrate “hate crimes” and only blacks can be the victims. If one is white, there is no need to expect that Justice will be colorblind and that our country is supposed to be run by laws rather than by men.
“In the process of gaining our rightful place, we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence.” Almost 50 years before, Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke these words as part of his “I Have a Dream” speech.
Obviously, both Minister King Samir Shabazz and Eric Holder missed class the day this was taught.
Meanwhile, the mainstream media “watchdog” — neutered and toothless — shivers over its wee-wee pad in the corner with nary a peep.

…so goes the Nation.” How far the world has changed since that phrase was “hark the herald angels sing” but instead now has become something of a curse of impending doom. The “Golden State” has turned out to be nothing other than a shiny, metallic bangle, made in China, fallen from the frock of the Wicked Witch of the West, HRH Nosey Pelosi from the Asylum by the Bay formerly known as San Francisco (where it is abundantly clear that the inmates are in fact running the asylum).
San Francisco’s nemesis to the south and the nation’s second largest city, Lost Anglos has now become the official capital city of Azatlan, the once mythical land dreamed up by radical members of La Raza and MEChA; Azatlan is the land reconquered by the “rightful owners” (i.e., ethnocentric Hispanics) of the entire southwestern portion of the United States.
When Mexican Presidente Calderon was in the United State on his last official visit to take a crack at reading Obama’s teleprompter, chastizing Arizona, one of our own states, in the House of Representatives, he was given a standing ovation by beaming moonbat democrats; after this third-world head of state was done, he was interviewed by The Wolfman Blitzer of the Clinton News Network (CNN). Blitzer must be getting old and forgetful, obviously thinking he was interviewing a Republican when he actually asked some shockingly straightforward questions of El Presidente.
BLITZER: So in other words, if somebody sneaks in from Nicaragua or some other country in Central America, through the southern border of Mexico, they wind up in Mexico, they can go get a job…
CALDERON: No, no.
BLITZER: They can work.
CALDERON: If — if somebody do that without permission, we send back — we send back them.
Let’s see: Mexico deports illegals in its country, but the US is expected to absorb all illegals who cross the US/Mexican border (including members of Hezoballah) ?
Now, it’s clear why wild-eyed Nazi Pelosi and her gaggle of minions were braying vociferously and clapping their hooves after Calderon basically told the US that it has no right to enforce its own border, while Mexico does the exact opposite. It seems that hypocrisy is the beacon on the hill and has no limits in Pelosi’s world order.
Speaking of hypocrisy, the Los Angeles City Council recently passed a boycott of the State of Arizona when Arizona passed into law, the law that is already law but nowhere enforced by federal, state or local law enforcement; it seems the braintrusts and unphotogenic rejects from “Depicable Me” that comprise the Los Angeles City Council think it unseemly that Arizona will actually begin to enforce existing immigration laws, making it illegal for illegals to be illegally in the State of Arizona. What an amazingly draconian action by the State of Arizona!
Shortly after the smug geniuses passed the boycott, lead by Janice Hahn, scion of the Family that Common Sense Forgot, the LA City Council immediately had to vote on an exception to the boycott by extending a contract to an Arizona company to install photo-operated red-light enforcement cameras.
“The boycott (of the state of Arizona) never intended to impede public safety,” Councilman Richard Alarcon said. “It intended to, if anything, send forth a message to Arizona, but not to negatively impact of the city of Los Angeles.” (As a side-bar, in keeping with the theme of third-world politics in which Los Angeles has now descended, Alarcon is being investigated for allegedly not legally residing in the area which he represents; a squatter reportedly moved into his “legal residence” in the district which he represents and had time to change the locks before anyone noticed — you be the judge…)
Obviously, the message should have been that council members should learn to do their homework instead of jumping at the chance to engage in juvenile political stunts to drum up support for illegal alien voters. Perhaps city council members should figure out ways to fix the innumerable potholes in the street which number roughly in the same range as the number of illegals that have moved in this “sanctuary city.”
Actually, it would be more amusing if Arizona passed a boycott of Los Angeles in retaliation; it is certain that these contestants for reality t.v. sitting on the city council have no idea that Arizona provides about 1/4 of Los Angeles’ electrical power. One can picture the blowhards at the next City Council Meeting sitting in the dark (and thankfully silent like when President Urkel’s teleprompter shuts down) at City Hall because Arizona got tired of the children throwing tantrums and decided to throw the switch, so to speak.
Eric Holder, the Attorney General of the United States, serving under the Obama Administration, recently filed a law suit against the State of Arizona over its “new law” to enforce a law that is already a federal law. The real question now should be : Will the Justice Department now file a lawsuit against all US cities that have declared themselves “sanctuary cities” or cities that REFUSE to enforce federal laws regarding illegal immigration? Number one and two on the list should be San Francisco and Los Angeles.
Don’t expect that anytime soon…

What do illegal immigration, BP’s oil spill and the US budget have in common? All are gushing uncontrollably with little relief in sight.
As we witness the oil slick of millions of barrels of oil gushing into the Gulf of Mexico, I am reminded of the US’s current federal deficit. Why is Obama so blase about the oil? Look at the economy! We could put our federal deficit to good use by actually printing the bills and dropping them into the Gulf of Mexico to soak up the oil. Then again, I calculated that there would be more bills than oil slick. You know things have gotten out of control when socialist European countries AND communist China are chastizing Obama about his reckless spending.
Meanwhile, Democrats continue to blame Bush. Nazi Pelosi was just quoted as saying that Democrats will stop blaming Bush “when the problems go away.” Since mankind has always had problems, I guess that means that Bush will from this point forward be the source of all mankind’s problems. (Democrats have even started applying this principle retroactively, so that World War I, the Hindenburg disaster, and Jimmy Carter’s presidency are now officially Bush’s fault.)
Like the BP oil gushing into the Gulf and the US Government gushing deficits, illegal immigration is the equivalent gushing of lawbreakers over our southern border. God must have quite a sense of humor as it was amusing to listen to President Oblahblah tell the American people on July 1, 2010 that, “the border is more secure today than any time in the past 20 years,” then to read in the news the following day, July 2, 2010:
“EL PASO, Texas (AP) – A deadly shootout between gunmen and Mexican police that left seven bullet holes in El Paso City Hall has renewed calls for tighter border security, even as local authorities say little can be done to stop stray bullets from crossing the U.S.-Mexican border.”
Now we have proof that Hezbollah are sending members of their welcome wagon to Mexico so they can easily gain entrance to the US. Still, Eric Holder, Urkel Obama’s attorney general, today, July 6, filed a lawsuit against the State of Arizona, trying to prevent Arizona from enforcing already existing federal immigration laws amid the bedwetters’ fears that the law “could” lead to “racial profiling.” Ironic, that this is the same Eric Holder that dismissed actual examples of racism by not pursuing “allegations” (caught on video tape) against African-Americans in the form of the Black Panthers intimidating others at voting booths during the 2008 elections.
By the time President Urkel is done, the US will be able to comfortably teach third-world dictators like Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro lessons in how to run an advanced third-world country — Chicago-style.
