Focus group: "Obama Girl is annoying!"

The Trib (Hi Frank! You Tool!) is reporting that the latest "Obama Girl" video, in which the model implores Hillary to leave the race, could be fodder for GOP strategists in the fall.

HCD Research Inc., which employs its MediaCurves technology to focus-group media content, found that many of the 440 participants in its survey conducted via Internet were left feeling less warm about the senator because of the young model, her message, or both.

What's more, when they asked the participants to pick a word that described their emotional response to the new video, many chose "irritated" and "embarrassed" to characterize their reactions.

Amber Lee Ettinger, the curvy young woman who plays Obama Girl, became a big Internet deal with last year's "I've Got a Crush on Obama" video. Apparently, she's now soooo 2007..


Somebody should clue Miss Ettinger into the fact that she doesn't have a chance at "getting with" Hussein Obama: the object of her affection doesn't like white people.

I'm sure Miss Ettinger's parents are the ones who are surely "irritated" and "embarrassed" by their daughter's behavior.

Fitna

Islamofacists have won another victory in their battle against freedom, democracy and Western Civ.

The boys over at Live Leak pulled an anti-Islam video from their archives after their staff was threatened with head-lopping, by irate Muslims.

The Jawa Report has a copy on its server, and so does No Pasaran!

It's only a 16+ minute movie and it is a real eye-opener. Just as we saw the vile, nauseating pabulum being spewed by Jeremiah Wright, that was nothing compared to the vitriol being launched by radical Imams (or just, Imams - the radical is implied).

The man-behind-the-film is outspoken Dutch politician Geert Wilders. If you want some background on this Dark Knight and his crusade, Der Spiegel did a great write-up on him.

"Fitna is the last warning to the West. We can choose to pass freedom on to our children or allow our freedom to sink into a multicultural swamp," he says forebodingly.



Did you put the old feelings of 9/11 behind you? Be prepared to be angry all over again.

Nazism was defeated in 1945, Communism in 1989 - Islam is the next Totalitarian threat that must be neutralized before the flames of chaos engulf the world.

At the rate that Muslims are breeding, it is only a matter of time before they have the numbers to fulfill every filthy fantasy that that pederast poseur Mohammed wrote down in 635 A.D.

Slavery Museum flounders amidst questions

A national slavery museum is raising alot of eyebrows because it keeps getting donations, but it isn't finished yet and the people in charge "don't like nosey reporters asking no questions."

Despite millions of dollars in private and public dollars committed to the museum, organizers have given an unclear accounting of their finances: While the museum cites $50 million available, a 2006 tax return obtained by The Associated Press details $17.6 million in assets, much of that believed to be the value of a 38-acre proposed site.

Nearly five years after a ceremonial groundbreaking, the opening has drifted to 2008 and beyond. Contacted by the AP, neither developer Silver Companies nor architect C.C. Pei could say when the museum would open, though Pei said of a 2008 date, "We'd have to get started right now."

Asked to clarify the museum's future, Wilder said he was "finished explaining anything."

"We comply with every reporting schedule we have to comply with," said Wilder, 77, now mayor of Richmond. "If you wanna help raise some money, then help. Other than that, quit worrying us.".


If you read the article, the people in charge are blaming Hurricane Katrina for the slow-down in donations.

Poor Katrina, she gets blamed for everything....

P-Diddy capped Tu-Pac

The LATimes dug deep into the NYC shooting and robbery of Tu-Pac in 1994. The event sparked the infamous East-Coast / West-Coast rap rivalry.

Based on FBI information, the LATimes says "P-Diddy capped dat n*gga!"

I personally don't care who killed Tu-pac. I'm just extremely happy someone did!

The audacity of dupery

You long time readers know that I've been deriding the Obama cult for over a year now.

We people of Illinois, those of us who actually pay attention to these things, have been saying for a long time that Obama is an utter fraud. His policies are all Big Government and Gun Grabbing.

All of you by now have heard about Obama's spiritual master's "sermons." Obama is a close friend of this black segregationist. He baptized BHO's kids, he sits on BHO's board, he even led the prayers when Obama decided to run for Prez. Obama is a wolf in sheep's clothing - while playing the role of "unifier" and being "color blind" he's been getting spoon-fed the most offensive and egregious hate-speech that you could imagine.

Here's a link to Jeremiah Wright's racist rants, via RealCLearPolitics

If roles were reversed and John McCain's priest was found making statements like, "What about black people robbing us?!!? What about black people who fill our prisons?!!! What about black people who prowl the streets and beat, murder and rape us poor white people?!!! Jesus was white and he was crucified by the Romans. Romans, who were black because the Italians intermingled with Africans!!! Africa is the problem and Africa needs to be wiped out!!"

10 minutes after that hit the press-rooms, McCain would be on a plane to Aruba and his name would be withdrawn from the Presidential ballots - replaced, at the last minute with Allen Keys' (snicker :)

Mona Charen writes a quick hit about BHO over at National Review entitled "Obama's True Beliefs":

I am coming to believe that Barack Obama is one of the greatest con artists we've seen. His entire campaign has been about "coming together," a post-racial consensus, etc. Any mention of his middle name was immediately condemned as ignorant fear-mongering. He has played the role of racial unifier with great skill and finesse.

But there is a great deal of evidence out there that he is anything but. The Reverend Wright is exhibit A. Mrs. Obama is Exhibit B. But there's lots more. Here is a piece by John Batchelor about some of Obama's other connections. For example:

William Ayers is the second Chicago figure to consider in the political profile of Mr. Obama. William C. Ayers, known as Bill Ayers, is notorious as a terrorist bomber from the 1970s who, on September 11, 2001, in the New York Times was quoted as finding "a certain eloquence in bombs." Now, at 62, Mr. Ayers, a former aide to the current Mayor Richard M. Daley, is an established professor of education at the University of Illinois in Chicago. Importantly, Mr. Ayers and his wife, the equally notorious Weatherman terrorist Bernardine Dohrn, hosted a crucial meet-the-candidate event in their Hyde Park neighborhood home in 1995 when Mr. Obama, also a Hyde Park resident, was sounded out by vital citizens, among them the retiring state senator Alice Palmer for the 13th District.

Obama's book is strewn with hints of his far left sympathies, as when he tells an African cousin who complains about the hardships of life in Kenya that things are no better in America. Or when he suggests that the lives of poor black young men in the inner city are blighted by white racism. He never says it explicitly, but it's there.

He has been very friendly with Rashid Khaladi, the fierce anti-Israel professor who took Edward Said's post at Columbia.

My own theory, FWIW, is that Obama acquired his far left views at least in part to make himself as authentically black as he could to compensate for having a white mother. His mother, of course, was very left herself. But looking the way he does, and having been raised among only white people (mother and maternal grandparents) he felt the need to better identify with his black heritage. That struggle is what the book is all about.

One can have sympathy for his psychological predicament . But that sympathy certainly does not extend to electing him president of a country that I sincerely believe he does not love.


People wonder why blacks "just can't get ahead" in our society. It is because of people like Jeremiah Wright who stand up at their pulpits week after week and put the cloak of victim-hood on their parishioners. These people are to blame - not white people!

You fools who fell for this Svengoolie need to wake up and see, for the first time, what the character of this man is. And it ain't pretty!

District 005 Follies

21 Police Officers in the 005th District have put their names in and submitted themselves for a Department Commendation Award.

Was the award request for outstanding police work? No.

Was the award for a coordinated police action which resulted in getting career criminals, weapons or drugs off the streets of Chicago? No.

I'll let you read the narrative yourself:

Listed CPD Personnel were instrumental in the organizing the 1st Annual 005th District reunion. This is the first affair of this magnitude in which the 005th District has honored a community icon. The Roseland Christian Ministries was selected. There is a vast, rich history that exists in the Calumet District. All current/formerly assigned members that attended the event pledged to continue to keep the vibrant heritage alive with an annual celebration and the selection of an honoree from the community.

Retired 005th District Commanders Briggs and Kelly were in attendance. They addressed junior officers (in excess of 200 personnel) on the importance of establishing a positive and lasting liaison with the community it serves. The event was dubbed,"The party with a purpose!" A thorough review of former Superintendent Cline's "Faith based Initiative program" resulted in Roseland Christian Ministries unanimously being chosen to be the first recipient of this charitable occasion.

Roseland was once a thriving middle class community. After economic hardship, it was plagued by joblessness and homelessness. It has yet to fully recover from the effects of those decades of economic decline. The evolution and growing influence of community organizations such as RCM offer hope and possibility.

RCM has served the community almost 25 years. It brings a variety of programs/ministries to this distressed area with its Midnight Ministry which also doubles as a registered City of Chicago Winter Warming Center.

Volunteer Service opportunities are offered and "33 East" a thrift store that distributes clothing, furniture and appliances at reduced prices has also been created.

The "Drop In Center" provides special programs, games and entertainment as an alternative to men and women being on the streets, thereby reducing gang, drug and violent crime related incidents.

RCM serves nutritious meals daily and offers a monthly Food Pantry for anyone in need of emergencey food assistance. With the reduction of state and local funding, many shelters and food pantries have been forced to combine or permanently close its doors.

Due to an abundance of support from the 005th district family/community a successful canned food drive, via "The Party" yielded 350 pounds of canned goods that were collected / presented to RCM.

Efforts such as these are bridge builders within any community. These actions enable a continued liaison to exist. Such an exhibition of support, for such a worthy cause, brings credit to the Department and its members, thereby, further enhancing the Chicago Alternative Policing Strategy.

The listed police personnel deserve recognition from their peers for their unselfish acts.


These 21 officers nominated themselves for having a CANNED FOOD DRIVE!!!!!

I'm not going to post their names because, frankly, they're all an embarrassment. I did notice that Captain White is missing. Maybe she was on furlough.

No wonder 005 is such a crappy place to live..the coppers are too busy doing non-sense like this instead of good old fashioned police work.

Pointing out the obvious

Geraldine Ferraro, Walter Mondale's running mate in 1984, remarked that people are only voting for Barack Hussein Obama because he's black.

Gee, ya think?

Former vice presidential candidate Geraldine Ferraro on Wednesday stood by her comment that Democrat Barack Obama is only where he is because he is black and said the reaction by his campaign was dividing the party.

"My comments have been taken so out of context and have been spun by the Obama campaign as racist that it's doing precisely what they don't want done -- it's going to the Democratic Party and dividing us even more," Ferraro said in an interview with ABC's "Good Morning America."

Ferraro, the Democratic vice presidential candidate in 1984 and the only woman ever nominated by a major party for either of the top two U.S. political offices, ignited a flap by telling a California newspaper that "if Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position."


To show you just how far up the collective MudTrail the average voter's head is, you can do this little experiment: a) close your eyes, b) imagine every issue and position that Barack Hussein Obama stands for and supports, c) now slowly replace Obama's face at the podium with Dick Durbin's. It doesn't have the same 'magic' does it?

The reason it doesn't have the same 'oomph' is that you'll get no tickle out of voting for "just another" white man. The big emotional payoff is that smug feeling of self-assurance that you get when you leave the polling place having voted for the first black presidential candidate.

And with 90+% of black Americans voting for the black candidate, do you think the media would catch a whiff of stale racism in that group of voters? No way - the magic wand of Liberal hypocrisy gives instant dispensation to them.

This whole election stinks to high heaven. What a joke. We have 3 candidates who stand for next to nothing and will say, and do, anything - absolutely anything - to get elected.

geraldine_clinton

The fact that people are voting for BHO simply because he's black is nothing more than a political reality. For Obama to call the comment "outrageous" shows just how deluded he is.

Cime and Leftists

If you have eyes to see, you have seen how Liberals and Leftists refuse to inculcate criminals with any responsibility for their actions. The press, politicians and academia bend over backwards to make up excuses to rationalize away a criminal's behaviors.

Thomas Sowell writes a great little article about how the Left coddles criminals and ignores victims:

For more than two centuries, the political left has been preoccupied with the fate of criminals, often while ignoring or downplaying the fate of the victims of those criminals.

So it is hardly surprising that a recent New York Times editorial has returned to a familiar theme among those on the left, on both sides

of the Atlantic, with its lament that "incarceration rates have continued to rise while crime rates have fallen."Back in 1997, New York Times writer Fox Butterfield expressed the same lament under the headline, "Crime Keeps on Falling, But Prisons Keep on Filling." Then, as now, liberals seemed to find it puzzling that crime rates go down when more criminals are put behind bars.


The way to reduce crime is to make sentening stricter and to institute the death penalty for capital cases. It's that simple.

NY Governor caught in sex sting

By now you've heard about New York governor Spitzer. This was the same guy who wanted to grant tens of thousands of illegal aliens in New York the privilege of a drivers' license last year.

Here's the full story.

It's nice to see Karma come the way of Eliot Spitzer. He's done much to ruin the lives and reputations of people who have crossed his path. He's a vicious man who's used his office to bully many others (TrooperGate). Sadly he probably won't be arrested for this "breach of etiquette", and since he's a Democrat; he'll likely not even resign. In fact, the fallout from this will be nothing. If you want to see how typical Democrats act when cornered, you have to look no further than William Jefferson.

Interestingly enough, Spitzer is a super-delegate. He has publicly endorsed Hillary Clinton. It is alleged that he's spent almost one hundred thousand dollars on hookers over the last few years.

If this guy was a Republican his papers would already be filed and he'd be on a plane to the Betty Ford Clinic.

Just a quick shout out to my favorite Wagon Ghoul who's a big fan of the blog - Wassup Shoestring!

Just another Universal truism

I'm RDO tonight and I just finished my 4th glass of a spectacular 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon by Sterling vineyards (napa, ca.). For a Cab it is pleasantly oaky on the nose, with a finish of black currants, licorice and a hint of cigar. I highly recommend this one.

I happened to stumble across an article on the recent murder spree in Israel. Which one, you ask? There seems to be one almost every week somewhere in Israel. The latest one occurred in a school. The shocking thing is that the perps were interrupted by a private citizen who owned a gun and came to the rescue.

It happens millions of time every year - worldwide. Someone with a gun prevents a crime from occurring. That is one less victim and one less successful criminal.

This wonderful little article tackles the question of why gun ownership by private citizens is not only important, it should almost be mandatory! Go over to Hogs on Ice and click here to read it.

Good stuff.

ps. Obama took the night off so 'The-Universal-Hope-For-All-Of-Mankind' didn't have to get up in public and talk about nothing. Whew! It's alot of work having to say, "Hope. Change. Hope. Change. I have hope. I want change." over and over and over again.

Obama's Core Beliefs

Barack Hussein Obama, back in 2002, went on record saying that he wouldn't consider running for national office because, "I don't have enough experience."

Since then he's done little to garner the necessary experience to run a country. What he has shown is the exceptional ability to "redistribute" your money. John Hawkins did some research and found that there are 9 key issues that show what kind of president Barack Hussein Obama would make. Sadly they're all designed to either take money out of your pocket, or weaken our nation - literally and culturally.

#1) Weakening America's Military through cuts.

#2) Losing the War in Iraq: Obama promises to remove combat brigades each month.

#3) Gay Marriage: Barack Obama opposed the Defense of Marriage Act.

#4) Pro-Partial Birth Abortion.

#5) Legalizing Marijuana: Obama favors "decriminalizing marijuana."

#6) Handing 845 billion dollars of your money to other nations: Obama's Global Poverty Act would commit the United States to spending, over the next 13 years, 845 billion dollars more than what we already do on global poverty.

#7) If you think George Bush is a big spender, you haven't met Obama: Even though the United States is already running a deficit, Obama is planning to push a whole host of new big government programs including a "10-year, $150 billion program to establish a green energy sector," a "$60 billion National Infrastructure Reinvestment Bank," and a "nearly universal health care plan (whose annual price tag he low-balls at $50 to $65 billion)."

#8) Amnesty and your tax dollars for illegal aliens: Believe it or not, John McCain, the Republican who is most closely associated with catering to illegal aliens, is actually well to Barack Obama's right on the issue.


Obama favors drivers licenses for illegals, wants to give illegals welfare and Medicaid, wants to let them participate in Social Security, opposes making English our national language, and he favors a comprehensive approach to illegal immigration, AKA amnesty, that even John McCain now claims to oppose.

#9) Gun Control: Obama is a perfect example of the stereotypical, liberal gun grabber. Obama has pledged to "Ban the sale or transfer of all forms of semi-automatic weapons," has "opined unequivocally that D.C.'s ban was 'constitutional'," and in 1996, Obama, in a survey, "supported banning the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns." If you're an opponent of the 2nd Amendment, who believes law abiding citizens shouldn't be allowed to defend themselves, Obama is your man.

Barack's wife, Michelle, said, "As a black man, Barack could get shot for just going to get gas." And who can forget that memoriable utterance by Mrs. Obama, "For the first time, I'm proud to be an American." Add to that the fact that B. Hussein Obama refuses to honor the US flag by either wearing it or saluting it, and you've got someone who has no place even being NEAR the Oval Office.

This guy is just like Clinton, short on good ideas but long on speech-making. Don't be duped by this false Messiah. He's an empty suit with no record, no experience and no good ideas.

Leftist Attacks Escalating

The bombing at a military recruitment center in downtown Manhattan yesterday highlights the desperation to which Leftist agitators will now go to in order to get their "no war" message across.

Michelle Malkin has been on top of this issue for over a couple years now. She wrote a nice recap on where the Loony Left is going with their organizational violence.



The cowards, like Cindy Sheehan and her minions, within this segment of our society know no bounds and have shown they'll do whatever they can to get their twisted ideas out into the mainstream. It seems every generation has their own version of Hippies.

And Hippies always end up in jail with their ass kicked squarely in.

The new Superintendent

Anyone else think that our new superintendent looks like a retard in the new PAX 501 release?

jody_downs

I mean, WOW! Not one person at HQ could tell him that he looks bad in the official mugshot?

Tough new immigration legislation

Call your senator and tell them to support this new immigration bill.

It is the toughest one ever proposed.

Some parts of the bill that are long-overdue:
* Block federal funding to cities that bar their police from asking about immigration status.
* Give the Department of Homeland Security the authority to use information from the Social Security Administration to target illegal immigrants.
* Require construction of 700 miles of fencing along the southern border, not including vehicle barriers.
* Impose sanctions on countries that refuse to repatriate their citizens.
* Deport any immigrant, legal or illegal, for one drunk-driving conviction.
* Enable local and state police to enforce federal immigration laws.

Let's get behind this bill and push like hell!

Happy Birthday Chicago!

A streets and san truck rolled down my block this morning and I noticed that the city seal of Chicago said, "Incorporated March 4th, 1837."

So happy birthday Chicago.
