Here is the latest regarding neil abercrombie, the left wing tool and virulent Israel-hater who was elected Governor of Hawaii last November and, a month later, decided to put the wood to "birthers" by promising to provide definitive proof of Barack Obama's birth status.

From Fox News:

Pressure was mounting on Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie today amid increasing confusion over whether President Obama was born there.

Abercrombie said on Tuesday that an investigation had unearthed papers proving Obama was born in Hawaii in 1961.
He told Honolulu's Star-Advertiser: 'It actually exists in the archives, written down,' he said.

But it became apparent that what had been discovered was an unspecified listing or notation of Obama's birth that someone had made in the state archives and not a birth certificate.

Remember, this story was virtually dead.  Just about no one was talking about it anymore.  The Obama people had won in a knockout.....

until Mr. Obama's great friend, neil abercrombie, proactively pushed it to the front burner. 

And now that this genius is running away from his boastful pronouncement about baby Barack?  He looks like the boob of the century.  Barack Obama looks even worse.  And the so-called "birthers", who were largely consigned to the dustbin of presidential history, are suddenly on the high ground.

I don't know for sure, of course.  But I have to believe that there are an awful lot of people who used to think that questioning Mr. Obama's legal status to be President was nuts, but now are saying "wait a come the guy in charge where Obama claims to be born suddenly can't - or won't - show us the proof.  How come he's running from this at about 100MPH".

Way to go neil. 

I guess life was a lot easier when you were just voting left and defecating on Israel in the house of representatives, wasn't it?

Why is Jim DeMint afraid of gay people?  So afraid that he can't abide them being politically conservative and supporting the Republican Party?

From CNN:

(CNN) Republican South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint is opting out of an appearance at this year's Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), making him the latest Republican to the criticize what some have seen as a pro-gay tilt to the prominent conference.

"With leading conservatives organizations not participating this year, Senator DeMint will not be attending. He hopes to attend a unified CPAC next year," DeMint spokesman Wesley Denton told CNN.

Conservative groups including the Heritage Foundation, Tony Perkins' Family Research Council and Brent Bozell's Media Research Center are boycotting the event over the inclusion of GOProud, a gay conservative group. Other conservatives are upset Indiana Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels was invited to speak. Daniels called for a "truce" on social issues while the country works through its economic problems.

But the list of attendees for the February event includes Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum.

I love that line about DeMint hoping to attend a unified CPAC next year.  How is that going to happen, since he is the one DE-unifying it.

Jim DeMint is straight?  Good for him.  He doesn't approve of the homosexual lifestyle?  Fine. Mr. DeMint is 100% entitled to feel any way he wants. That's his business.

But if DeMint wants to exclude homosexuals from CPAC because he doesn't approve of their lifestyle, that's not just his business anymore.  That's not just personal.  That is a demand that his intolerance and prejudice be shared by other members of the group.

Frankly, if I were among the powers that be at CPAC, I would be a lot more comfortable losing DeMint than GOProud.  GOProud isn't telling anyone how to think or act or live.  As political conservatives, all they want is to be part of the movement. 

By contrast, the DeMints of the world pretend to be politically conservative, but their idea of conservatism is insisting that others live the way they dictate, or be tossed out on their ears.  That sounds a lot more like the hugo chavez way than the conservative way.

So let DeMint boycott, and let him take Tony Perkins and Brent Bozell (who I usually think a great deal of but is dead wrong here) with him. 

My congratulations to Mr. Barbour, Mr. Daniels, Mr. Gingrich, Ms. Palin, Mr. Pawlenty, Mr. Romney, Mr. Santorum and all the other Republican luminaries who are proud to join GOProud at the CPAC convention - i.e. are acting like adults instead of whining children.  You elevate rather than derogate conservative principles by doing so.

In today's New York Post, Jonah Goldberg has a genuinely excellent analysis of why a keynote of President Obama's efforts to improve our economy should be offshore (and ANWR) drilling for oil.

Here are some key excerpts, but you would do well to read it all by clicking here:

...the solution is right in front of Obama's face. To echo a chant from the 2008 GOP convention, "Drill, baby, drill!"


The objective case for developing our oil and gas wealth is pretty straightforward. With the exception of climate change, pretty much everything the Obama administration considers a major problem would be improved by opening the floodgates to exploration.


The deficit?  If America unlocked its oil and gas reserves, the government could take in an estimated $1 trillion to $2 trillion more revenue over the coming years. That's not counting the revenues from the stimulus of lower fuel and energy costs.


Trade imbalances? Domestic oil and gas is, by definition, not imported. The more we produce here, the less we import, or the more we can sell overseas.


Take a gander at North Dakota, where oil production is up 138 percent since 2008. The boom "has helped make its economy almost recession-proof," writes American Enterprise Institute economist Mark Perry. North Dakota's "jobless rate never exceeded 4.4 percent even during the Great Recession when the US rate hit 10.1 percent."


North Dakota, with a $1 billion surplus, and the lowest unemployment rate in the country, has more jobs today than it did when the recession started in 2007. Perversely, as AEI's Steve Hayward notes, if trends continue, North Dakota may well outproduce California and Alaska (it's already zoomed passed Oklahoma), not because California and Alaska are running out of oil, but because the feds keep it under lock and key.


Sure, the Democratic base and The New York Times would scream bloody murder. But for a guy trying to get re-elected, that's a bonus.

Does Goldberg make sense?  That's for President Obama (and you) to decide.

Me?  I am fully committed to the aggressive development of alternative energy.  I say that not as a throwoff comment, but with 100% sincerity.

However, I am realistic enough to understand that the time when our oil usage is so low that we don't need additional production is a good many years, probably decades, away.   And by stifling the exploitation of our own enormous resources, we not only destroy our economy, but make ourselves slaves to dictators in countries that hate our guts. 

Does that make sense?

Besides, if we are not drilling, others are.  They, not us, will be the source of new oil reserves and we will go that much further into the debt of those countries.

Enough of the PC.  It's time to act in our own self-interest.

As Mr. Goldberg (and others before him) so eloquently says, "drill, baby, drill".

Zeke .... ..... Alternative Energy ? ? .... The only viable alternative to fossil is Nuclear. .... Nuclear has had pariah status for the last 40 years. .... .... The US needs to develop 'standard package' nuclear generating plants, ... a rational system to transport and dispose of expended nuclear fuel .... and security against terrorists (probably bury the reactors underground). ... .... Wind and Solar, which exist only because huge subsidies, and even then, will not climb out of the 2-4% share of power generation. .... (01/22/11)

free` From the article: "The more we produce here, the less we import, or the more we can sell overseas." -- I would not sell any of the excess oil we pump. We should put any excess oil into out strategic oil reserve. You know the oil reserve that clinton sold off and Bush not only had to replace but also increase the size of because of the trouble in the middle east. (01/22/11)

We still do not know the real reason that keith olbermann's "Countdown" show on MSNBC is suddenly no more  - though it would be very hard to believe that Comcast's takeover of NBC this week, and the possibility that it could not abide olbermann's vicious, offensive daily hate-fests, is not the key component.

If so, then it is hard to see how Chris Matthews can survive, since he has worked dilligently to become as vicious and hateful as olbermann on his worst day - plus, his ratings are abysmal compared to what olbermann was getting.

Case in point:  This "screen grab", which I just got from an article at, shows what Matthews considered an acceptable graphic for the beginning of Thursday's show:


A picture of the capital building - with its new Republican rather than Democrat majority - in crosshairs.  And the words "fire on the right".

If, tomorrow, someone as sick and deranged as jared lee loughner tries to shoot up the house of representatives, do you think Chris Matthews will take any responsibility (given his hatred of Republicans, maybe credit is a more appropriate word here)?

Two weeks of direct attacks on Sarah Palin for her year-old campaign map featuring crosshairs on winnable congressional districts - which there is absolutely no evidence loughner ever saw, let alone reacted to - and Matthews does this?  How jealous olbermann must be that he didn't think of it first, before he went bye-bye.

It seems to me that, if keith olbermann was dumped because Comcast did not like the partisan hate level of "Countdown", then there is a clock - a big clock - ticking for "Hardball", with the alarm about to go off.

And Chris Matthews certainly is helping to make that happen, isn't he?


UPDATE:  John  Hinderaker, at, points out that - for the moment, anyway - olbermann is being replaced by Lawrence O'Donnell, who is just as left wing and just as nasty.  That could mean Comcast is not changing the political tone of MSNBC, just getting rid of a pain in the butt.  Or (and this is my suspicion) it means that big changes are coming, the first of which is olbermann, and they had to utilize the "talent" already there to field an interim prime time lineup. 

Time will tell.

free` From what I have read Olby's contract was up. I would guess since olby is msnbc's "star" he wanted a bunch of money and comcast said no. I think that is all their is to this. (01/22/11)

Ken Berwitz free - My understanding is that his contract had two more years to run. (01/22/11)

free` Just saw this headline at DrudgeReport - DRAMA: OLBERMANN WANTED MORE $$ -- Also Ken you are correct his contract wasn't up, he just wanted to renegotiate it. (01/22/11)

Mainstream media have given some coverage to the subhuman monster named kermit b. gosnell, who is accused of killing 7 infants but almost certainly has killed many, many more.

Why is this not front page material everywhere?  Because gosnell ran an abortion mill in Philadelphia, and, among our wonderful "neutral" media, you're not supposed to sully the abortion industry, that's why.

Here is Michelle Malkin's introduction to her own column, which exposes in horrifically grim detail just how monstrous this "man", and his accomplices are:

The Philadelphia Horror: How mass murder gets a pass

By Michelle Malkin    January 21, 2011 12:00 AM

The fetal material-stuffed freezer at Philadelphias Womens Medical Society


The mainstream news reports about Philadelphias serial baby-killer Kermit Gosnell and his abortion clinic death squad only scratch the surface of his barbaric enterprise. You must, must, must read the entire, graphic, 281-page grand jury report (embedded after my column below) to fully fathom the systematic execution of hundreds of (not just seven) healthy, living, breathing, squirming, viable babies along with an untold number of mothers who may have lost their lives in his sick, grimy chamber of horrors as well. It is explicit. It is enraging. It will haunt you.


Ask yourself why you are not hearing about which root causes and whose rhetoric are to blame for this four-decades-long massacre just the tip of a blood-soaked iceberg defended by the predators of Planned Parenthood. You know the answer: If it doesnt help the Left criminalize conservatism, its not worth discussing.


From the conclusion of the grand jury report: It is not our job to say who should be fired or demoted. We believe, however, that anyone responsible for permitting Gosnell to operate as he did should face strong disciplinary action up to and including termination. This includes not only the people who failed to do the inspecting, the prosecuting, and the protecting, but also those at the top who obviously tolerated, or even encouraged, the inaction. The Department of State literally licensed Gosnells criminally dangerous behavior. DOH gave its stamp of approval to his facility. These agencies do not deserve the publics trust. The fate of Karnamaya Mongar and countless babies with severed spinal cords is proof that people at those departments were not doing their jobs. Those charged with protecting the public must do better.


Over to you, eugenics-inspired, eco-freak Obama science czar John Holdren

If this has not sickened you to the core of your being, the full column probably won't do it either.  But, on the assumption that most readers of this blog care about the death of hundreds of live children by these butchers, here is a link to Ms. Malkin's column.

Read it, then start to read the grand jury report she provides a link to.  And ask yourself just how compromised, our media must be to give the gosnell infanticide story essentially one-day-and-out coverage. 

Why are they not demanding answers from the agencies entrusted to protect the public, which allowed this monster to operate for decades?  Why are they not demanding an accounting from the people at those agencies who could have saved so many lives, but didn't bother? 

How can they call themselves journalists and ignore this?  How can they call themselves human beings and ignore this?
