The jig is up ...

... we are now the Whigs:

That is, what is the Romney camp — and the non-existent GOP establishment — trying to insulate itself against, particularly if it wins the election? Or rather, going back to interest in why rather than what, why, if they are preparing for an election win, would they be working preemptively to weaken the state delegations and the grass roots movement?

And the answer that keeps occurring to me is that the GOP must already fear a challenge to its authority from the TEA Party and the movement conservative base — they can see what’s happening at the state levels to any number of incumbents who have been defeated by upstarts and political outsiders — and they are concerned enough about such a challenge going forward that they were willing to alienate the conservatives now, at a time when We Simply Must Defeat Obama, essentially daring the base to walk away and give Obama another term, which they’ve calculated the base won’t do.

Or, to put it another way, never let a crisis go to waste.

They are who they have been waiting for, and who we will learn to hate (if we didn't already). They aren't the stupid party any more, because they know exactly what they're doing.

Someone has just removed the first supporting card:

A Florida appeals court has granted George Zimmerman's request for a new judge to oversee his trial for second-degree murder in the Feb. 26 shooting death of Trayvon Martin, the Orlando Sentinel is reporting.

A three-judge panel of the 5th District Court of Appeal found that Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester Jr. cast doubt on his impartiality when he wrote in his July 5 order setting $1 million bail that Zimmerman showed "blatant disregard for the judicial system" and that he was "manipulating the system for his own benefit."

If Esq O'Mara is playing hardball, then more power to him.

It's just my opinion, but a civil liability attorney who had half a brain and wanted to make his bones should start collecting all the evidence of the media shilling for that hag of a DA and the malfeasance that Corey has engaged in and be ready to present it to Zimmerman the minute his charges are dismissed. h/t palaeomerus

What about waiting periods?

Wow. It seems ...

... that Akins might be right after all:

A 1988 textbook, the second edition of “Human Sex and Sexuality” by Edwin B. Steen and James H. Price, estimates a 2 percent pregnancy rate. A 2012 textbook, “Comprehensive Gynecology,” 6th edition, gives an estimate of between 2 percent and 5 percent and states that “in the experience of most sexual assault centers, the chance of pregnancy occurring is quite low.” Estimates depend on flawed methods, with inevitable biases. An experiment to give an accurate figure is, of course, impossible. And does the estimate really matter to the woman who has been raped? Either she gets pregnant, or she doesn’t.

Textbooks?! You mean schools are teaching this shit?

This is exactly what I thought that Rep Akin meant, but said poorly. His comment about 'legitimate' rape should have been 'forcible' rape ... the legitimate was intended to discount all false reports of rape.

But, as the linked article goes on to state, the problem with obtaining better data is that the issue is so politically charged and it's hard to get truthful compliance.

And that's sad that the issue is holy writ to the Left and that they will shout down any effort to refine the data if there's any possibility that their dogma might be challenged.

Surely ...

... the GOP establishment will treat this betrayal just like they did Todd Akin:

As America prepares to pick our president for the next four years — and as Florida prepares once again to play a decisive role — I'm confident that President Barack Obama is the right leader for our state and the nation. I applaud and share his vision of a future built by a strong and confident middle class in an economy that gives us the opportunity to reap prosperity through hard work and personal responsibility. It is a vision of the future proven right by our history. - Charlie Crist
But no ... Charlie Crist, who got and accepted help from the 'establishment' in a losing bid for the senate, is one of the wayward good guys. Stupid party, indeed ...

Good News!

Former Marine Brandon Raub released:

A former Marine who was forced into a psychiatric ward for anti-government Facebook postings has been freed from the hospital, according to a Circuit Court ruling handed down Thursday.

Judge Allan Sharrett dismissed the case against Brandon Raub, who had been detained by government officials and transferred to a VA Hospital in Salem, Va., earlier this week. The judge called the petition to continue Raub's forced detention “so devoid of any factual allegations that it could not be reasonably expected to give rise to a case or controversy.” Mr. Raub will be released immediately.
I've been remiss in not posting about this, but sometimes news hits when I'm just tapped out in the outrage department.

If you're inclined, send Judge Sharrett a note of thanks; here's the address:

I am firmly ...

... in the Jeff Goldstein camp:

Allow me a few final words on this Akin dustup so that I can address some of my “critics”. First, I am not supporting Akin in any specific way. What I’m doing is criticizing as deplorable, stupid, politically retarded, and all too frequent, the canned, PC, preemptive (and in many cases, I believe, if not ridiculously hyperbolic, then outright phony) outrage that came from the right in reaction to a impolitic phrase from a GOP candidate. I’m criticizing it for its cowardice and its cynicism. I’m criticizing it for its moral preening and its tacit acknowledgment that, because the left would doubtless make a stink about what has become, in our PC culture, a kind of social third rail — everything we know of rape is settled science — those on the right, or in the pro-life camp, who don’t wish to be tarred with the brush Akin wielded, had better get out front of it, fast, and distance themselves from his comments in the most forceful way they knew how. As iain't gonna happenf not doing so was an admission of some sort of guilt by association.

That is, I’m criticizing them for repeatedly being manipulated by the left, oftentimes before the left even has to spring into orchestrated action. That’s how scared many on the right are of being called anti-science or knuckle draggers, etc. Without stopping to tell themselves that those who are making these charges are doing so solely for political purposes — to try to shame you, ain't gonna happento try to mock you, to try to fluster you and silence you. And that, no matter what you say — even if you’ve apologized, or you were one of the first to distance ain't gonna happenyourselves from the comment to show you aren’t “moronic” or “one of those kind of conservatives” — it doesn’t matter: they’ve determined merely to tie all Republicans to it any way, regardless of your very public protestations that you are nothing like that horrible horrible man who said horrible horrible things.

– When really, the proper response would have been, from the right, well, I don’t agree with Akin and I’d like to ask him on what, exactly, he’s basing certain assertions about rape and pregnancy, because I suspect he has his facts wrong — or at least, he’s relying on old theories. In which case, I’m happy to present him with my facts, and perhaps persuade him to change him opinion on the matter.

You know, treat it as an intellectual exercise, show voters that Republicans can speak intelligently about the finer points of their Party’s pro-life platform, that they are capable of intellectual growth, when the need arises, and that they don’t react to speech like the left does, instantly denouncing, shaming, and calling for excommunication so as not to run afoul of the cultural PC police — all so that they can assert their own moral and intellectual superiority in a way that is terrible ostentatious and entirely self-serving.

In fact, I find it rather odd that those who instantly called on Akin to leave the race for the good of the party and the cause — this race is, they keep reminding us, bigger than just one man, and so much is at stake! — didn’t themselves stop to think just how badly their very public shunning of Akin might hurt the party’s electoral chances, particularly if they failed in their efforts to chase Akin off the ballot and replace him. As is often said, if you’re going to kill the king, you’d better kill the king.

So sorry for the long quote, but the whole post (and those preceeding it) are most excellent and worthy of your reading them.

It's saddening to look back at how quickly the Right descended on Akin for making a statement that was so easily misrepresented by the Left, without asking for a clarification (I don't care what side you're on, that's the least the party could have done). Instead, they reacted just the way the Left does, in an attempt not to be portrayed in a negative light by the Left.

When will they learn that ain't gonna happen.

Which is kinda Jeff's point ... the GOP plays by the Lefts' rules, and loses. No. Screamin. Eagle Shit.

This ...

... is worth reading:

Gibson’s agreement to pay $350,000 to settle with the Department of Justice over alleged Lacey Act violations prompted a flood of press releases from environmental groups, lawmakers, and U.S. wood manufacturers. In unison, they hailed the settlement as a win for the world’s forests, a blow against slave labor, a victory for American jobs, and a triumph of diligent law enforcement. The actual settlement agreement, jointly signed by Justice officials and the Gibson legal team, paints a far different picture. Presenting a set of facts both sides agree on, it depicts overzealous and poorly informed enforcement officials in hot pursuit of a company that was trying in good faith to comply with contradictory foreign statutes. It also inadvertently sums up all that is wrong with the Lacey Act provision that holds U.S. firms criminally liable for violations of foreign laws.

Of course, we'll be the only ones to understand the truth. It's criminal what the government does at the behest of environmental groups. h/t Eapen Thampy for Radley

Observations of a Goy

One of these days (and not that far off) ...

... someone is going to use the easy availability of assault weapons on the government:

Yacubian's attorney's fees mounted to more than $250,000, and he tried to sell his boat and permits, worth nearly a million dollars. The NOAA blocked the sale three times by refusing to release the permits -- without which the boat was unsalable. Without an income and out of resources, in July 2005 Yacubian gave up and settled with the NOAA. The agency got everything, and he got less than half the boat's sale price.

I'm not sure what this guy is supposed to have done, but in the end it really doesn't matter.

What matters is that the government just stole this guy's livelihood, because they could.

Nice week at St George Island ... a little beat up from the storms a couple of weeks ago, but overall in good shape.

There should be ...

She’s touted by the liberal media as one of the brightest commentators on television, yet MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow got thoroughly demolished by National Review editor Rich Lowry on Sunday’s “Meet the Press.”

When continually asked by Lowry to defend the President’s $700 billion Medicare cuts in ObamaCare, Maddow repeatedly refused making herself look tremendously foolish (video follows with transcript and commentary):

It's just my opinion that those of us on the Right need to be more open to calling out those in the media (especially an idiot hag like Maddow) and get in their faces. YMMV.

Don't look at the benefits ...

... but rather the costs:

Quite simply, growing up with gay parents was very difficult, and not because of prejudice from neighbors. People in our community didn’t really know what was going on in the house. To most outside observers, I was a well-raised, high-achieving child, finishing high school with straight A’s.

Inside, however, I was confused. When your home life is so drastically different from everyone around you, in a fundamental way striking at basic physical relations, you grow up weird. I have no mental health disorders or biological conditions. I just grew up in a house so unusual that I was destined to exist as a social outcast.

I know that this might rub some of my gunny friends the wrong way, but reality is reality.

My brother was gay, and as far as I can remember I never advised him that he needed to 'straighten' up or told him that he was wrong in any way. I just loved him, and I miss him.

But he's still dead ... a victim of Teh AIDS (and trust me, it's not a good way to go.). If you're gay, I won't hold that against you - it's a non-issue to me. But please, don't try to use the argument that your actions have no efffect on your children.

Well, it HAS ...

... been a long time coming:

This has been a long-time coming — and mirrors what a lot of pw readers have been advocating for quite a while now: states showing the federal government that in a constitutional republic whose founding documents were meant to protect individual, state sovereignty, and constrain the power of a federal authority, all it really takes to break the hold of the federal Leviathan is to simply tell it no.

You owe it to yourself to read the whole thing.

And remember, this is one of Robb Allens heros.

Auntie: The news reported that that guy who shot up that theater in Colorado used an assault rifle.

Me: No he didn't ... an assault rifle is capable of select-fire and is not available over-the-counter at any gun store.

Auntie: Well ... that's what the news said ...

Me: The news 'says' a lot of things that aren't true ...

ALL citizens ...

... need to think long and hard about this:

In this paper, we posit a scenario in which a group of political reactionaries take over a strategically positioned town and have the tacit support of not only local law enforcement but also state government officials, right up to the governor. Under present law, which initially stemmed from bad feelings about Reconstruction, the military’s domestic role is highly circumscribed. In the situation we lay out below, even though the governor refuses to seek federal help to quell the uprising (the usual channel for military assistance), the Constitution allows the president broad leeway in times of insurrection. Citing the precedents of Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War and Dwight D. Eisenhower sending troops to Little Rock in 1957, the president mobilizes the military and the Department of Homeland Security, to regain control of the city.

Make no mistake ... this paper is about how military planners need to be prepared to use military force on American citizens (the authors protestations not withstanding).

Police, more and more ...

A Port Orange police officer asked a woman to show him how her husband tried to strangle her and when the woman put two fingers on the policeman's neck, she got arrested, records show.

Officer Michael Garay, responding to a domestic disturbance, charged Claudia Ambroziak, 58, with battery on a law enforcement officer, although he asked the woman for the demonstration, police reports state.

So, if an officer asks you to demonstrate you're putting yourself at risk of being arrested.

That sounds about right.
