ASS-KISSERS

See that flag over there on the right?  The Gadsden flag was there for a long time and probably will be back again.  And I suspect that the flag of Israel may go up at some point.  But the flag of Arizona is there now.  Here’s why:

There can be few sights more humiliating for the American people than that of a US president kowtowing to a foreign leader or to supranational institutions. Continental Europeans are used to this sort of thing after decades of dominance by unelected bureaucrats in Brussels, and have grudgingly accepted over time the gradual and undemocratic erosion of their freedoms. But most Americans fiercely defend their national sovereignty, and find the idea of giving international organisations a say over their laws and lives completely unacceptable.

The Obama administration however has submitted a report to the UN Commissioner on Human Rights, South African judge Navanethem Pillay, which makes direct reference to a popular Arizona immigration law aimed at tackling illegal immigration, which is fiercely opposed by the White House, and is the subject of legal action by the Justice Department.

The highly controversial reference to the Arizona law serves only one purpose – to gain UN and international support for the Obama administration’s position in the face of mounting opposition from Arizona legislators and a majority of the American people. A recent Rasmussen poll showed 61 percent of Americans backing Arizona-style laws for their own states, and just 28 percent supporting a Justice Department challenge .

By doing so, Obama officials undoubtedly hope to stir up international condemnation of the Arizona policy in advance of the UN General Assembly meetings in September, which they believe will increase pressure on Arizona to back down. It is a highly cynical move that speaks volumes about the Obama team’s willingness to undercut American sovereignty and popular will on the world stage.

It is important to note that the Obama administration’s report to the United Nations will go before the UN Human Rights Council, which includes in its current membership some of the world’s worst human rights abusers. The likes of China, Cuba, Libya, Russia, and Saudi Arabia, will have a right to pass judgment over the Arizona immigration law, a humiliation for a great superpower before some of the most brutal regimes on the face of the earth.

In the meantime, the Justice Department continues to harass Arizona.

So it is a violation of “human rights” to insist that the federal government do its job.  Democrats?  If you want a reason why you’re currently in freefall, this is as good a reason as I can possibly provide you.

Spin this any way you like.  But the fact of the matter is that the leader of your party doesn’t much like the country he leads.  He and his administration are only too happy to kowtow to the “international community” at the expense of people with whom he shares a nationality and who only ask that the government secure the national borders, something that it is the responsibility of all governments to do.

What, do you think the United States is a perfect country, Johnson?  What about the whole chattel slavery thing, huh?  What about that?! 

What about it? Six hundred thousand Americans lost their lives to get rid of it.  Yeah, well, what about America’s endemic racism?  Spare me. 

Tell you what; if you can come up with any other country in the world where a member of a minority group has a chance in hell of being elected to lead that country, that country will be the only one in the world who has the right to criticize the United States on racial matters.

Until you can, keep your mouth shut.  Simple fact of the matter, rest of the world, is that you’re as racist as you think we are.

Are Americans arrogant?  Now and then.  Not to put too fine a point on it but compared to many of the members of the United Nations whose opinions this president and his sychophants believe that we are obliged to respect, this country has, quite frankly, a great deal to be arrogant about.

If Arizona was rounding up illegal aliens and herding them into concentration camps, that would be one thing.  But the fact that the Arizona law referenced treats illegal aliens better than they are treated in Mexico, say, is something else again.  That Barack Obama considers this law a human rights violation should tell anyone without blinders everything they need to know about the current president and his toadies.

Realizing that half of this nation’s populace is still somewhere between “bird happy” and “more satisfied than not” with him, his “leadership”, and the direction he desires to move this country is even more bizarre.

I hope we are not too cowed, castrated and lobotomized for this to be true. But decades of propaganda and indoctrination seem to have taken their toll. I hope the president erred by moving too soon, and now we can awaken from our slumber and throw the whole rotten, stinking leftist fascist system out, starting with Dems and rogue judges.

Perhaps his Better-than-all-of-us-ness should apologize to the Organization of The Islamic Conference for the US killing so many Muslims after 9/11. Shame on us. We should have simply politely asked some wise Islamic country to punish the terrorists for us, if the Muslim world was agreeable to that.

Interesting that the UN Commissioner on Human Rights is from South Africa. I saw that recently an Afrikaner submitted something to the UN about what he says is the current ongoing genocide being perpetrated against the Boers.

How strange for a US president to go to the UN to complain about a US State. It is bizarre.

O Lord, make haste to help us…

Well said, both you and Gardiner. This is an outrage about which we need to inform Americans again and again.

Pray for Obama – Psalms 109.8 (King James Version)

This is infuriating. This is one of the few times I’ve wished we had a parliamentary system so we could get this freak show out of the White House before 2013.

According to the BCP 1928, Ps 109:7-8 reads —
7 Let his days be few; and let another take his office.
8 Let his children be fatherless, and beg their bread; let them seek it also out of desolate places.

That does have a nice ring for the Obama family.

I have prayed for his conversion from whatever universalist/agnostic/liberation theology world his mind inhabits, but I’m not actually going to pray for his children to have to beg for bread. :-)

Katherine: I agree. “Let his days be few and let another take his office” is enough for me. And 2012 can’t come soon enough.

Obama’s kids seem lovely. I wouldn’t wish that on them at all. Their father’s politics isn’t anything to do with them.

Lord our Governor, whose glory is in all the world: We commend this nation to Your merciful care, that, being guided by Your Providence, we may dwell secure in Your peace. Grant to the President of the United States, the Governor of this State (or, Commonwealth), and to all in authority, wisdom and strength to know and to do YOUR will. Fill them with the love of truth and righteousness, and make them ever mindful of their calling to serve this people in Your fear; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.

Almighty God, to whom we must account for all our powers and privileges: Guide the people of the United States in the election of officials and representatives; that, by faithful administration and wise laws, the rights of all may be protected and our nation be enabled to fulfill your purposes; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

As a supporter of comprehensive immigration reform I am dismayed at Obama’s move. It will not be helpful in my view of trying to get the reforms that Bush proposed.

As to the short term political ambitions of Obama it is brilliant.He is playing every side of the immigration debate in a brilliant manner

I am not buying at all that Obama thinks the UN will make AZ bow to their pressure. In fact I suspect he knows it will do the opposite.

It needs to be recalled that Obama played a large part in killing immigration reform in 2007 for largely selfish reason and also because of significant Union opposition. The “rights” problem is it buys into the Obama cares about the illegals mantra. That mantra is false.

Obama was under severe pressure by immigration groups last year because of the high level of deportations that were happening under his watch. The outrage was building. Well here comes the AZ legislature to the rescue

We knew last year that there would be no immigration bill proposed this year. In fact in the first two years of his term he seems very disinterested in it.

Now he can take this largely symbolic fig leaf of going to the UN to various immigrant groups and pass that off as real action for their concerns. If one is real cynical one could believe he really wants GOP folks to use this so if they gain some seats he can just blame for the bad ole Conservatives and their lack of compromise. While in essence he has never shown he would use real political capital to do anything

So he can use this issue to do nothing while playing the theme that the GOP is uncaring about hispanics.

Everyone is getting played on the left and right but they don’t realize it. They are playing their parts perfectly.

Obama is not stupid and he has political instincts. IF Obama was really serious about immigration reform would be doing this? He would be trying to lower the temperature not raise it.

That right there is a key fact. Obama was a “community organizer”. Those people never lower temperatures. They raise them. That’s how they get things done. They are first class manipulators.

Ray Comfort for President of New Zealand! Now that Obama has created ‘facts on the ground’ for disregarding the US law preventing presidents not born on US soil, perhaps he could be elected here in 2012. Imagine him standing in front of the U.N. or Congress, or Elena Kagan asking them, ‘Have you ever told a lie?’

jh, re immigration ‘reform’:

What is the difference between an official elected to serve his country turning lawbreakers into ‘voters’ to take away our sovereignty in order to get re-elected, and a traitor bringing in a foreign army to take away our sovereignty in a more obvious fashion? Immigration reform is indefensible.

If you bring out the compassion argument, why not a) enforce our borders b) figure out which people are worst off in the world and allow them to emigrate to the U.S.? People from India, or Africa, I would think (although the Piskies would probably resent the latter, since they’d tend to join ACNA). IOW, immigration reform seems hypocritical when you dig down into what is actually being said.

Smurf Breath

Oh, and another thing that irks me about immigration ‘reform’ (flexible word ‘reform’, ain’t it?). Citizens having the care of their elder family members ‘rationed’ so that their money can be stolen to pay for the health care of those here illegally.

We’ve elected a government that will sanction taking money away from support of people’s families and giving it to others, on the basis of race. This too is indefensible.

Every family has to face its own tragedies. No one has the right to steal from others in order to mitigate that, thereby creating tragedies for those from whom they steal. The leftists need to grow up (not that any of them are sacrificing a great deal personally to help those in need).

Frankly, I see little reason to admire either one. And outrage is not the same as hatred.

ech, as I thought. jh is just another dishonest liberal. Spread your lies. If anyone calls you on it, don’t admit you were wrong. Just wait a while, hope everyone forgets, and spread the lie again.

I’m underwhelmed by liberal integrity.
