I'LL DO THE BREATHALIZER TEST. BUT NOT THE EMISSIONS

Ken Berwitz

Here's a surefire entry in the 2011 "you can't make this stuff up" contest.

Exerpted from an article at the web site for KVUE TV, Austin Texas:

Two men were arrested for driving while intoxicated on 6th Street Friday night.  One was riding a horse, while the other was riding a mule.

Austin police say the ment were both intoxicated.  They were apparently trying to lure people out of bars and into the street to take pictures with them and their farm animals.

Jose Rios, 33, and sidekick, Samuel Olivo, Jr., 48, parked their horse trailer near I-35 and 12th Street.  They rode their mule and horse down to 6th Street, inviting peole to take pictures with them and their four-legged beasts.

Police video shows the two being stopped by officers.  In the video, Rios appeared to be so intoxicated that he couldn't even finish his sobriety test.

Austin police arrested the pair for DWI.

"The law has recently changed and the motor vehicle definition is a little ambiguous, but they felt that it would fit that criteria," said Commander Jason Dusterhoft, of the Austin Police Department.

"In the city of Austin it is legal to ride a horse on a public street," said Commander Dusterhoft.  "What we were obviously concerned about is them being intoxicated, inviting people out into the street causing a danger, causing a danger  ... to themselves, the public, the horses."

One of the cowboys was so intoxicated that police say he had to be hospitalized.  The animals were taken to animal control and it is not clear if they are back with their owner.

The horse swore it wasn't drunk, it just had a couple of snorts.  The mule stubbornly refused to talk

The men, however, have been remanded to custody and are awaiting the creation of a "riding while drunk" course to be given by the local ASPCA.

THE "NONVIOLENT LEFT" AND ITS HOPES FOR SARAH PALIN

Ken Berwitz

For the better part of a week we have endured the left's high and mighty hyperbole about how Sarah Palin is a hater and incites violence.

Well, here is a youtube.com compilation of how the left feels about Ms. Palin.  Take a look, and bask in the love and nonviolence (WARNING:  It contains some very rough language):

SARAH PALIN RESPONDS

Ken Berwitz

After almost a week of our wonderful "neutral" media inflicting a tidal wave of unrelenting attacks on Sarah Palin, in a blatantly dishonest attempt to associate her with the Arizona shooting, Ms. Palin has responded. 

Here is her statement in its entirety.  Please pay special attention to the paragraph I have put in bold print:

Like millions of Americans I learned of the tragic events in Arizona on Saturday, and my heart broke for the innocent victims. No words can fill the hole left by the death of an innocent, but we do mourn for the victims families as we express our sympathy.

I agree with the sentiments shared yesterday at the beautiful Catholic mass held in honor of the victims. The mass will hopefully help begin a healing process for the families touched by this tragedy and for our country.

Our exceptional nation, so vibrant with ideas and the passionate exchange and debate of ideas, is a light to the rest of the world. Congresswoman Giffords and her constituents were exercising their right to exchange ideas that day, to celebrate our Republics core values and peacefully assemble to petition our government. Its inexcusable and incomprehensible why a single evil man took the lives of peaceful citizens that day.

There is a bittersweet irony that the strength of the American spirit shines brightest in times of tragedy. We saw that in Arizona. We saw the tenacity of those clinging to life, the compassion of those who kept the victims alive, and the heroism of those who overpowered a deranged gunman.

Like many, Ive spent the past few days reflecting on what happened and praying for guidance. After this shocking tragedy, I listened at first puzzled, then with concern, and now with sadness, to the irresponsible statements from people attempting to apportion blame for this terrible event.

President Reagan said, We must reject the idea that every time a laws broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions. Acts of monstrous criminality stand on their own. They begin and end with the criminals who commit them, not collectively with all the citizens of a state, not with those who listen to talk radio, not with maps of swing districts used by both sides of the aisle, not with law-abiding citizens who respectfully exercise their First Amendment rights at campaign rallies, not with those who proudly voted in the last election.

The last election was all about taking responsibility for our countrys future. President Obama and I may not agree on everything, but I know he would join me in affirming the health of our democratic process. Two years ago his party was victorious. Last November, the other party won. In both elections the will of the American people was heard, and the peaceful transition of power proved yet again the enduring strength of our Republic.

Vigorous and spirited public debates during elections are among our most cherished traditions. And after the election, we shake hands and get back to work, and often both sides find common ground back in D.C. and elsewhere. If you dont like a persons vision for the country, youre free to debate that vision. If you dont like their ideas, youre free to propose better ideas. But, especially within hours of a tragedy unfolding, journalists and pundits should not manufacture a blood libel that serves only to incite the very hatred and violence they purport to condemn. That is reprehensible.

There are those who claim political rhetoric is to blame for the despicable act of this deranged, apparently apolitical criminal. And they claim political debate has somehow gotten more heated just recently. But when was it less heated? Back in those calm days when political figures literally settled their differences with dueling pistols? In an ideal world all discourse would be civil and all disagreements cordial. But our Founding Fathers knew they werent designing a system for perfect men and women. If men and women were angels, there would be no need for government. Our Founders genius was to design a system that helped settle the inevitable conflicts caused by our imperfect passions in civil ways. So, we must condemn violence if our Republic is to endure.

As I said while campaigning for others last March in Arizona during a very heated primary race, We know violence isnt the answer. When we take up our arms, were talking about our vote. Yes, our debates are full of passion, but we settle our political differences respectfully at the ballot box as we did just two months ago, and as our Republic enables us to do again in the next election, and the next. Thats who we are as Americans and how we were meant to be. Public discourse and debate isnt a sign of crisis, but of our enduring strength. It is part of why America is exceptional.

No one should be deterred from speaking up and speaking out in peaceful dissent, and we certainly must not be deterred by those who embrace evil and call it good. And we will not be stopped from celebrating the greatness of our country and our foundational freedoms by those who mock its greatness by being intolerant of differing opinion and seeking to muzzle dissent with shrill cries of imagined insults.

Just days before she was shot, Congresswoman Giffords read the First Amendment on the floor of the House. It was a beautiful moment and more than simply symbolic, as some claim, to have the Constitution read by our Congress. I am confident she knew that reading our sacred charter of liberty was more than just symbolic. But less than a week after Congresswoman Giffords reaffirmed our protected freedoms, another member of Congress announced that he would propose a law that would criminalize speech he found offensive.

It is in the hour when our values are challenged that we must remain resolved to protect those values. Recall how the events of 9-11 challenged our values and we had to fight the tendency to trade our freedoms for perceived security. And so it is today.

Let us honor those precious lives cut short in Tucson by praying for them and their families and by cherishing their memories. Let us pray for the full recovery of the wounded. And let us pray for our country. In times like this we need Gods guidance and the peace He provides. We need strength to not let the random acts of a criminal turn us against ourselves, or weaken our solid foundation, or provide a pretext to stifle debate.

America must be stronger than the evil we saw displayed last week. We are better than the mindless finger-pointing we endured in the wake of the tragedy. We will come out of this stronger and more united in our desire to peacefully engage in the great debates of our time, to respectfully embrace our differences in a positive manner, and to unite in the knowledge that, though our ideas may be different, we must all strive for a better future for our country. May God bless America.

Sarah Palin shows about 100 times more honesty and more class in that statement than the "journalists" who have forgone any pretense of professionalism in their efforts to tie her to the actions of a deranged, left wing lunatic.

Ms. Palin has put them to shame.  And, if they had the capacity, they would be ashamed.

But most don't, and won't.  Too bad for them. 

And too bad for the people who rely on them to honestly, neutrally report facts.

MARK HALPERIN'S ADVICE TO CONSERVATIVES

Ken Berwitz

Mark Halperin is a senior editor at both Time Magazine and MSNBC.  That should tell you everything you need to know about his politics.

Here, via Mary Katharine Hams article for dailycaller.com, is what Halperin had to say about how the media handled the Arizona shooting, and how conservatives should have reacted.  The dialogue is from Tuesdays Morning Joe show on MSNBC.  The bold print is mine:

I just want to single out one thing. I think the media and the politicians have behaved pretty well so far. Im worried about the anger of the right-wing commentariat, Halperin said. Fox and George Will and other conservatives are in some cases justifiably upset at liberals, but theyre turning this back into the standard operating procedure of all this is war and fodder for content rather than trying to bring the country together.

Wait a second, Scarborough responded. I think they would say that you have that backwards, that a shooting was turned into fodder to attack conservatives.

Halperin: And, I already made that criticism, as well. Theyre right, but rather than seizing on it and turning the other cheek, theyre back at their war stations. thats not going to help us.

Got that?  The media, and numerous Democrat politicians, who all but accused Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and conservatives in general of pulling the trigger themselves, behaved pretty well.  

And those conservatives who are reacting negatively to the relentless three day slime job perpetrated by Halperins kindred pals in the media?  How dare they voice any objections?  Whats wrong with them?  Dont they know that media have an inalienable right to attack conservatives with complete impunity and total dishonesty?  Dont they realize that conservatives are supposed to just turn their cheek and accept it?  Dont they know that the only acceptable reaction is to say thank you sir, may I have another?

The scariest part?  There is no doubt that Halperins views are shared by many other members of what is laughingly referred to as todays professional journalism. 

And there certainly is no shortage of this group at Time and MSNBC.


A LESSON IN POLITICAL CIVILITY

Ken Berwitz

I got these quotes from Mark Hemingway's blog for the Washington Examiner.  I thought you might be interested in seeing them.

Ex-Rep. Paul Kanjorski (D-PA), Monday, in the New York Times:

"We all lose an element of freedom when security considerations distance public officials from the people. Therefore, it is incumbent on all Americans to create an atmosphere of civility and respect in which political discourse can flow freely, without fear of violent confrontation."

The same Paul Kanjorski on October 23 of last year:

"That Scott down there that's running for governor of Florida," Mr. Kanjorski said. "Instead of running for governor of Florida, they ought to have him and shoot him. Put him against the wall and shoot him.

Lesson over.

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER ON MEDIA LIES ABOUT THE ARIZONA SHOOTING

Ken Berwitz

Excerpted from Charles Krauthammer's superb column in today's Washington Post:

The charge: The Tucson massacre is a consequence of the "climate of hate" created by Sarah

View Only Top Items in This Story

The verdict: Rarely in American political discourse has there been a charge so reckless, so scurrilous and so unsupported by evidence.

As killers go, Jared Loughner is not reticent. Yet among all his writings, postings, videos and other ravings - and in all the testimony from all the people who knew him - there is not a single reference to any of these supposed accessories to murder.

Not only is there no evidence that Loughner was impelled to violence by any of those upon whom Paul Krugman, Keith Olbermann, the New York Times, the Tucson sheriff and other rabid partisans are fixated. There is no evidence that he was responding to anything, political or otherwise, outside of his own head.

Furthermore, the available evidence dates Loughner's fixation on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords to at least 2007, when he attended a town hall of hers and felt slighted by her response. In 2007, no one had heard of Sarah Palin. Glenn Beck was still toiling on Headline News. There was no Tea Party or health-care reform. The only climate of hate was the pervasive post-Iraq campaign of vilification of George W. Bush, nicely captured by a New Republic editor who had begun an article thus: "I hate President George W. Bush. There, I said it."

Finally, the charge that the metaphors used by Palin and others were inciting violence is ridiculous. Everyone uses warlike metaphors in describing politics. When Barack Obama said at a 2008 fundraiser in Philadelphia, "If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun," he was hardly inciting violence.

When profiles of Obama's first chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, noted that he once sent a dead fish to a pollster who displeased him, a characteristically subtle statement carrying more than a whiff of malice and murder, it was considered a charming example of excessive - and creative - political enthusiasm. When Senate candidate Joe Manchin dispensed with metaphor and simply fired a bullet through the cap-and-trade bill - while intoning, "I'll take dead aim at [it]" - he was hardly assailed with complaints about violations of civil discourse or invitations to murder.

Did Manchin push Loughner over the top? Did Emanuel's little Mafia imitation create a climate for political violence? The very questions are absurd - unless you're the New York Times and you substitute the name Sarah Palin.

The origins of Loughner's delusions are clear: mental illness. What are the origins of Krugman's?

Thank you Mr. Krauthammer.  And shame on the people you have taken apart.  Few ever deserved it more.

Zeke .... .... Stay tuned. .... .... We'll next find out that Sarah Palin's discourse is responsible for Global Warming, Cold Coffee, and traffic lights turning red just before I get to them. .... .... The arguments presented by the nation's elite have lacked any credibility. .... ..... Those LeftTards are standing there, toothless, and telling us their side had 23% fewer cavitites. .... .... ... (01/12/11)

Zeke .... ..... to NotOne : ..... You certainly proved the point I was making. .... .... Palin had NO comment on the Tucson incident prior to the LeftTard series of attacks on her. ..... .... Denigration without facts, logic, substance or insight --- merely constant mudslinging. .... ..... ..... Ms Palin is a much more impressive and accomplished political figure than Joe Biden (admittedly, a rather low bar). ..... ..... .... ..... btw, WHY did you consign Mr McCain to Hawaii in addition to Alaska ("lower 48"). (01/12/11)

NoOne Sarah Palin adds nothing to the political discussions of this country. She is finished politically, praise the above. John McCain should be bashed to Alaska and never allowed to the lower 48 for his lack of appropriate judgement of a viable running mate. (01/12/11)


WHAT IS DUPNIK HIDING?

Ken Berwitz

Excerpted from an article at azcentral.com.  The bold print is mine:

Sheriff's Department and community-college officials in Pima County are refusing to release a wide range of public documents about the man charged in Saturday's shooting rampage that left six dead and more than a dozen wounded.

The Pima County Sheriff's Department and Pima Community College have declined to release documents that could shed light on run-ins they had with 22-year-old Jared Loughner in the months prior to the shooting.

The Arizona Public Records Law requires that records be "open to inspection by any person at all times" unless officials can prove releasing the information would violate rights of privacy or confidentiality or otherwise harm the best interests of the state.

The Arizona Republic requested that records, including incident reports on campus and calls for dispatch of deputies to Loughner's home, be released under the law. Such reports are often released as a matter of course in criminal cases.

College officials have not indicated when or if they will release the information, saying they want prior approval from the FBI and are concerned about violating federal laws protecting the privacy of student information. The Republic did not request student academic records.

College Chancellor Roy Flores said Saturday the information would be released by Sunday. But by Tuesday, the information had not been released. College officials said the FBI wants to review any information first.

On Monday, The Republic requested copies of any reports from the Pima County Sheriff's Department involving contacts with Loughner or calls to his house. Pima County Deputy Rene Carlson said her office would not release the reports without a specific date, though this is not required by state statute.

What is sheriff Dupnik hiding?  What information does he not want us to see?  How bad will it make him look?  How incompetent will it make him look? 

Suppose the shooter were a right wing lunatic - a real one; not a left wing lunatic who has been portrayed as one - and this were sheriff Joe Arpaio of neighboring Maricopa County, or sherrif Paul Babeu of neighboring Pinal county, both of whom are known for their dedication to enforcing the law (which, to much of the left, equates to being hopeless rightwingers).  Do you think our wonderful "neutral media would let them get away with holding back this information?  Do you doubt for a second that they would be demanding that it immediately be made public?

Well, this is a left wing lunatic and the sheriff is Clarence Dupnik, a partisan Democrat who thinks he has a right to decide which laws he will or will not enforce.  So do yourself a favor and don't hold your breath waiting for that to happen.

But listen to them squeal like stuck pigs if you call them biased. 


THE "JOURNOLIST" AND THE PALIN ATTACKS

Ken Berwitz

Just in case there is anyone who actually believes the media attacks that tie Sarah Palin and other conservatives to the Arizona shootings are in any way random, I would like to remind you of the "Journolist". 

The "Journolist" was a email group of leftward media people who conspired with each other to create a "party line" that would further their political agenda.  

When it was discovered, and publicized by non-leftward venues (www.thedailycaller.com led the charge on this one), the list  - and it had hundreds of participants by this time - was (at least supposedly) scrapped.  And a good many of its members quickly went into their best Bart Simpsonesque  "Who, me?  What are you talking about?" imitation.

Most people do not know the "Journolist" even existed.  Why?  Because, predictably, these people worked dilligently to withhold it from the public.  No surprise there:  people bury the actions they're ashamed of, if they can.  And journalists can.

With this in mind, I would like to post key excerpts from the July 22, 2010 blog written by Noel Sheppard of newsbusters.org.  I expect it will give you considerable insight into how these people operated then -- and, based on the last few days, still do:

JournoListers Conspired To Destroy Sarah Palin Day McCain Picked Her

Some even discussed how the former Alaska governor's decision to have a Down Syndrome baby rather than abort it could be used against her.  

As the attacks ensued, the Nation's Chris Hayes wrote, "Keep the ideas coming! Have to go on TV to talk about this in a few min and need all the help I can get." 

Witness America's so-called journalists conspiring to destroy a woman most of the nation had not even heard of yet:

Ryan Donmoyer, a reporter for Bloomberg News who was covering the campaign, sent a quick thought that Palin's choice not to have an abortion when she unexpectedly became pregnant at age 44 would likely boost her image because it was a heartwarming story.

"Her decision to keep the Down's baby is going to be a hugely emotional story that appeals to a vast swath of America, I think," Donmoyer wrote.

Politico reporter Ben Adler, now an editor at Newsweek, replied, "but doesn't leaving sad baby without its mother while she campaigns weaken that family values argument? Or will everyone be too afraid to make that point?"

Will everyone be too afraid to make that point? This man is currently the National Editor of Newsweek.com!

But there's more:

Ed Kilgore, managing editor of the Democratic Strategist blog, argued that journalists and others trying to help the Obama campaign should focus on Palin's beliefs. "The criticism of her really, really needs to be ideological, not just about experience. If we concede she's a maverick,' we will have done John McCain an enormous service. And let's don't concede the claim that [Hillary Clinton] supporters are likely to be very attracted to her," Kilgore said. [...]

Suzanne Nossel, chief of operations for Human Rights Watch, added a novel take: "I think it is and can be spun as a profoundly sexist pick. Women should feel umbrage at the idea that their votes can be attracted just by putting a woman, any woman, on the ticket no matter her qualifications or views."

Mother Jones's [Jonathan] Stein loved the idea. "That's excellent! If enough people - people on this list? - write that the pick is sexist, you'll have the networks debating it for days. And that negates the SINGLE thing Palin brings to the ticket," he wrote.

Another writer from Mother Jones, Nick Baumann, had this idea: "Say it with me: Classic GOP Tokenism'."

Wow! If enough people on this list write that the pick is sexist, you'll have the networks debating it for days.

Getting a sense of just how much control these folks had over the news cycle?

Now enter Time's Joe Klein:

"We're reporting that she actually supported the bridge to nowhere. First flub?" [...]

Time's Joe Klein then linked to his own piece, parts of which he acknowledged came from strategy sessions on Journolist. "Here's my attempt to incorporate the accumulated wisdom of this august list-serve community," he wrote. And indeed Klein's article contained arguments developed by his fellow Journolisters.

In the last few days thanks to the Daily Caller, we have learned that the folks on this list acted to bury the Jeremiah Wright story in the spring of 2008, plotted to destroy Palin that fall, and then celebrated when their candidate Barack Obama won the election.

Think there really is a free and independent press anymore?   

Get the picture?  I thought you would.

Wolves travel in packs.  That was true last July and - obviously - it's true now.

Zeke .... .... .... The same process (with different mechanisms) shapes the thinking and values of our Education System - elementary, high school and university, our courts, much of our government agencies, the majority of our news media. ... .... .... By selective enforcement of laws and regulations, the hard left outcome prevails. .... ..... (01/12/11)


IS THIS A MEMORIAL OR AN EPISODE OF "SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE?"

Ken Berwitz

I don't know if I can watch much more of this.

First we had the pomp of an opening number by the Tucson Symphony Orchestra, to cheering and applause.

Now there is what appears to be a Doctor, professor.....and Indian activist who gets cheers and applause for mentioning individual tribes and Arizona schools, then does a series of traditional Indian prayers (were the dead and insured Indians?  Just curious)....

Now a U of Arizona student is singing the National Anthem, but the Tucson Symphony Orchestra is mostly drowning him out --- wait, they finally mixed the sound so he can at least somewhat be heard.  Lots more cheering and applause at the end.

Now Robert Shelton, President of the U of Arizona is making a speech, and getting the cheers and applause.

This is not a memorial.  This is a pomp and circumstance spectacular.  The inappropriateness is stunning.

I'm sickened by it.

========================================================

UPDATE:  After being introduced by Shelton with praise worthy of a major campaign rally, President Obama is speaking.  And speaking.  And speaking.

The good news is that his comments have largely been devoid of politics - a couple of indirect implications, that's about it.  For that I applaud him. Mr. Obama, at least so far (it is 9:16PM as I write this) has resisted the temptation.

The bad news is that he is making a speech.  A way, way, overlong speech, loaded with applause lines that elevate him, not the people he is supposed to be memorializing.

This is classic Obama.  Using the cover of a nonpolitical event to self-promote.  A 10-15 minute statement would have been enough - more than enough - to sincerely memorialize the victims of this crime.  But not for him.  

Hallelujah.  He just finished.  Over half an hour long, and he is now getting the applause and cheers a speech like this was guaranteed to generate.

Bad show. 

And now Shelton, the University President, is (figuratively) wet-kissing him on stage ("thank you for your remarkable, inspiring words"). 

Oh, by the way, some people died and were injured....

Zeke .... .... .... GW Bush visited families of fallen US service members. He did this with NO publicity; it was not known he was doing this, for most of his administration. His purpose was to give comfort and solace to the families and friends. .... .... It is doubtful Mr Bush received applause, cheers or shouts, while he did this .... .... .... (01/12/11)


THE DEATH WISHES THAT MEDIA SOMEHOW DIDN'T NOTICE

Ken Berwitz

Here, excerpted from an article by Brent Bozell at the Media Research Center, is a grouping of death threats by left wingers against conservatives.  Every one of them was uttered after jared lee loughner did not like an answer Gabrielle Giffords gave him at a town hall meeting in 2007, and made it plain that he had it in for her:

■ Im waiting for the day when I pick it up, pick up a newspaper or click on the Internet and find out hes choked to death on his own throat fat or a great big wad of saliva or something, you know, whatever. Go away, Rush, you make me sick! Left-wing radio host Mike Malloy on the January 4, 2010 Mike Malloy Show, talking about Rush Limbaugh going to the hospital after suffering chest pains.

■ Rush Limbaugh is beginning to look more and more like Mr. Big, and at some point somebodys going to jam a CO2 pellet into his head and hes going to explode like a giant blimp. That day may come. Not yet, but well be there to watch. Chris Matthews on MSNBCs Morning Meeting, October 13, 2009.

■ So, Michele, slit your wrist! Go ahead! [chuckles] I mean, you know, why not? I mean, if you want to or, you know, do us all a better thing. Move that knife up about two feet. I mean, start right at the collarbone. Montel Williams talking about Representative Michele Bachmann on Air Americas Montel Across America, September 2, 2009.

■ He is an enemy of the country, in my opinion, Dick Cheney is, he is an enemy of the country.... You know, Lord, take him to the Promised Land, will you? See, I dont even wish the guy goes to Hell, I just want to get him the hell out of here. Ed Schultz, The Ed Schultz Show, May 11, 2009.

■ Author/humorist P.J. ORourke: Its the twilight of the radio loud-mouth, you know? I knew it from the moment the fat guy-
Host Bill Maher: You mean Rush Limbaugh and Sean-
ORourke: -from the moment the fat guy refused to share his drugs....
Maher: You mean the OxyContin that he was on?...Why couldnt he have croaked from it instead of Heath Ledger? HBOs Real Time with Bill Maher, February 8, 2008.

Rest assured, this is a minuscule sampling of what is out there.

Nevertheless, I can't wait to read what Paul Krugman, and Joe Klein, and Mark Halperin have to say about this, not to mention the angry condemnations from Chris Matthews, keith olbermann and Ed Schultz (one of the quotes is his). 

But I better wait. Because those angry condemnations won't be coming at all, will they?

These people are to journalistic integrity what roseanne barr is to taste and decorum.


ROBERT F. KENNEDY JUNIOR'S SICKNESS

Ken Berwitz

This column, by Robert F. Kennedy Junior, is so sick, so perverse, so consumed with partisan ideological hatred, that I don't want to excerpt it. 

What did Kennedy write?  Here is one hint and one reality:

-Hint:   He blames the right wing for killing his uncle, President John F. Kennedy.

-Reality:  John F. Kennedy was killed by a radical leftist named Lee Harvey Oswald who, at one time tried defecting to the USSR.
