(Video): Andrew Klavan on “The Crisis of Fake Global Warming”

June 10, 2014

Well, thank Al Gore! At last someone is calling on us to not deal with a problem that doesn’t exist. Or something.

And while we’re on fake crises and how they’re used to scare us into bombing our economies back into the Stone Age, remember that melting Antarctic ice sheet I wrote about a week or so ago? Guess what?

It’s still volcanoes. No evil CO2 lurking anywhere in the background.

Oh, and the Obama EPA’s new “carbon regulations?” As Rich Lowry points out, Math still wins.

Opposition to #Obamacare is racist, and why Democrats love the race card

May 25, 2014

Liberal tolerance racist

Oh, brother. If we needed any more convincing that it was well-past time for Senator Jay Rockfeller (D-WV) to retire and never be heard from again, this clip of him not just playing the race card, but slamming it on the table and dancing around it should do the trick:

(h/t David Freddoso)

Apparently the senator’s “analysis” was aimed at Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI), who was at the hearing. Naturally, Johnson took offense:

“My opposition to health care has nothing to do with the race of President Obama,” Johnson said. “I objected to this because it’s an assault on our freedom. … I found it very offensive that you would basically imply that I’m a racist because I oppose this health care law.”

“You’re evidently satisfied with a lot of people not having health insurance,” Rockefeller responded.

“I am not. Quit making those assumptions. Quit saying I’m satisfied with that. I’m not. There’s another way of doing this,” Johnson said. “Please, don’t assume, don’t make implications of what I’m thinking and what I would really support. You have no idea.”

“I actually do,” Rockefeller said. “God help you.”

“No senator, God help you for implying I’m a racist,” Johnson replied.

Thankfully, Senator Rockefeller (D-RaceBaiter) will retire in January, hopefully to be replaced by Republican Shelley Moore Capito.

But the senator from West Virginia didn’t just slam his colleague from Wisconsin; he cavalierly insulted all of us who oppose the Affordable Care Act. While I can’t speak for others, let me recapitulate the reasons I oppose it:

Political Philosophy: By placing the State in charge of people’s healthcare, you fundamentally alter the relationship between citizen and State, turning free people into dependent wards of a Leviathan-like government and taking away their control over a crucial part of their own lives. To a conservative/classical liberal like me, this is a bad thing.

Constitutionalism: Congress has no authority –none!– to force a citizen to buy a private product under penalty of law. This is an abominable legislative usurpation and a trammeling of individual liberty. It tortures the Commerce Clause until it begs for mercy. It goes against the spirit and intent of our founding documents, and the Supreme Court, in the worst decision since Korematsu, was wrong to uphold the law.

Bad Law: I’ll be more charitable than Senator Rockefeller and stipulate that most voting for this law thought they were doing good and helping people. But that doesn’t justify defending a law that just isn’t working. It’s not even meeting its basic goals: healthcare premiums are still skyrocketing; millions have lost the insurance they liked; millions have lost access to the doctors they liked; and, even when you have insurance, you may not be able to find a physician who will take you. (Really. Watch that one.) When a law performs as poorly as this, is it any wonder people hate it? Are they all racists, Jay?

Somehow, looking over those reasons, I think it’s safe to say the President’s ancestry doesn’t matter to me and my opposition to his miserable law. In fact, I can quite honestly say I couldn’t give a rat’s rear end about President Obama’s race.

But I don’t expect you to get that, Senator.

PS: On a lighter note, I’m happy to say Andrew Klavan is back at last making satirical political videos. Longtime readers will recall my love for his “Klavan on the Culture” series. Now he’s returned, producing them for Truth Revolt. (He also still works with PJMedia and PJTV) In this video, he explains what we’ve all wondered: Just why do Democrats call us racist? Enjoy.

Welcome back, Andrew! smiley dance

#Obamacare: If we bought coffee the way we now buy health insurance

Via David Freddoso, this is a funny little satire of what we’re now experiencing under the Affordable Care Act:

Scary thing is, I worry Starbucks might go for this…

NYC Mayor @MikeBloomberg gets taste of his own medicine, but no pizza UPDATE: Sadly, it’s just satire.

May 2, 2013

I love it!

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg was denied a second slice of pizza today at an Italian eatery in Brooklyn.

The owners of Collegno’s Pizzeria say they refused to serve him more than one piece to protest Bloomberg’s proposed soda ban,which would limit the portions of soda sold in the city.

Bloomberg was having an informal working lunch with city comptroller John Liu at the time and was enraged by the embarrassing prohibition. The owners would not relent, however, and the pair were forced to decamp to another restaurant to finish their meal.

Witnesses say the situation unfolded when as the two were looking over budget documents, they realized they needed more food than originally ordered.

“Hey, could I get another pepperoni over here?” Bloomberg asked owner Antonio Benito.

“I’m sorry sir,” he replied, “we can’t do that. You’ve reached your personal slice limit.”

Hey, Mikey! How does it feel to have someone telling what you can and can’t eat, you pint-sized statist tyrant?

Read the rest, with a language warning: Hizzoner doesn’t like being told “no.”

Makes me want to go to New York, just to give Collegno’s some thank-you business. smiley applause

UPDATE: Just found out it was satire. Darn it. It’s one of those things that just should be true. :)

(Video) Friday Funnies: “So God made a liberal”

February 8, 2013

You may have seen the Chrysler commercial during the Super Bowl that featured images of farmers while the voice-over was Paul Harvey reading his famous “So God made a farmer” essay. It was nice work.

But Sooper Mexican couldn’t resist having a little fun with it, so he created this: “So God made a liberal.”

And on the seventh day, He said: “What have I done?” smiley rofl

(Humor) Klavan on why crony capitalism isn’t capitalism

October 31, 2012

One of the occasional frustrations I experience happens when I discuss economics and the economy with liberal friends (1). When I praise capitalism and free markets, they point to corrupt practices by business and its government allies as proof that capitalism can’t work, and that we need more government regulation to make the system “more fair.” (“Fair” must be the new “F-word.”)  (2) When I counter that the problem is government intervention and that the picking of winners and losers is what creates the cronyism, they just roll their eyes in pity at my lack of understanding and we go on to the next topic.

Well, Andrew Klavan (3)  makes the same point I do, only –as usual– in a much more witty and entertaining fashion. Maybe, the next time the topic comes up, I’ll just whip out my Kindle Fire and play this video for them:

Footnotes:
(1) Hey, this is California. You can’t avoid having a few. And, other than being wrong, they’re really nice people.
(2) Their faith in government is touching. Childlike and in denial of reality, but touching.
(3) Who used to make the “Klavan on the Culture” videos I’d post. He needs to start that series again. Now. Please?

Rules for the road: “How to behave during an Islamic massacre”

September 16, 2012

I was noodling around YouTube this morning and ran across this episode of Andrew Klavan’s sorely missed “Klavan on the Culture” from last year. Like the Churchill quote from yesterday, events of the past few days have made this video again relevant:

And after seeing the Obama administration’s “handling” of this crisis –refusing to defend free speech, blaming Americans for actually exercising that right– I can tell President Obama and Secretary Clinton and all the rest of Team Hopenchange studied this video very, very closely.

And got the point all wrong.

Argh.

Bill Whittle’s excited. He’s just read an article giving over a thousand reasons to vote for Obama and, by golly, he’s fired up for Hope and Change and … Wait. Something’s odd here:

Ah, that cleared it all up. With a record like that, ladies and gentlemen, I think we all know how to vote.

PS: One small quibble. The weapons supplied in Fast and Furious were semi-automatics, not full-autos. Still scandalous and deadly, though.

(Video) Our fourth-greatest president, revisited

May 20, 2012

“Tell me you love me!”

Back around Christmas, our Savior-President announced that he was the 4th-best president in our history. Some of us foolishly tweaked Obama for this, mistaking this moment of self-effacement for an act of monumental ego. American Crossroads, indeed, went so far as to make a video unfairly mocking Obama for simply expressing the humble truth.

Well, here we go again. Howling, raging right-wing fanatics have again reacted like instinct-driven haters and jeered at Obama for inserting himself into the biographies of almost every president over the last 100 years.

And Karl Rove’s American Crossroads has another video:

Oh, is there no end to the disrespect and mockery?

Nope.

PS: By the way, according to a North Carolina teacher, disrespecting Obama is criminal.


Bain vs. Bane

May 20, 2012

The Obama campaign, including their allies in the media, have tried their best to make Mitt Romney’s time at turnaround investment company Bain Capital a negative for him, portraying him as a heartless, greedy capitalist. (1)

The IBD’s Michael Ramirez parries those attacks with one simple cartoon that compare Romney’s record as a CEO to Obama’s as president:

(Click the image for a larger version)

As they say, ’nuff said.

And be sure to check out Michael’s archive at IBD; he’s the best conservative political cartoonist in the business these days and one of the best, ever.

Footnote:
(1) Sadly, some Republicans helped give them ammunition. And let’s not speak of Obama’s corporate donors and the rewards they get; that would be racist.
