The new Tiananmen Square

June 24, 2009

From The massacre has begun:

This is the Iranian regime, wading into its own unarmed people and
axing them to death, bludgeoning women (seen as the greatest threat to
the regime) and throwing them to their deaths from pedestrian bridges.
The same Iranian regime whose embassy officials are invited to American
embassies around the world to celebrate on July 4th, of all things, a
successful revolution.

Fair warning, there are graphic images of the dead in that post.

And these are the monsters our president invited to celebrate the Fourth of July with us. The invitation has since –finally!– been rescinded, but it should never have been issued. The incredible naivete of American administrations in dealing with Iran – this one in particular, but the delusion has been bipartisan – has been exposed for the foolishness it is. The rats who take axes to unarmed women have no interest in "engagement." And these are the same "men" who want nuclear weapons.

The only engagement we should have with them is the business end of a Hellfire missile.

Rot in Hell, you bastards.

It seems to have finally dawned on the administration that inviting the representatives of a fascist theocracy that hates everything we stand for to celebrate the 4th of July with us is probably a Dumb Idea(tm).

We are lead by geniuses. Idea

Ru-dy! Ru-dy!

Gee, do you think Rudy Giuliani is seriously eying a run for governor of New York?  Idea

With Governor Paterson's ratings in the tank, the seat may just be Rudy's for the taking.

Connect the dots

Michelle Malkin writes today about the men behind the curtain of the grassroots movement toward socialized medicine:

If you believe the White House, there are 30 million Americans who
support a government health care takeover. But if you look at the
funding behind the Obamacare Astroturf campaign, it’s the same few
Leftist billionaires, union bosses, and partisan community organizers
pushing the socialized medicine agenda. Let’s connect the dots.

On Thursday, a national “grass-roots” coalition called “Health Care
for America Now (HCAN)” will march on Capitol Hill to demand universal
health care. The ground troops won’t have to march very far. HCAN, you
see, is no heartland network. It is headquartered at 1825 K Street in
Washington, D.C. – smack dab in the middle of Beltway lobby land.

Do read the whole thing. There are plenty of links to follow and, in the upcoming fight over health care, it's important to bear in mind Cicero's famous question: cui bono? Thinking

Oops, there goes another Inspector-General…

June 24, 2009

This time it's the sudden, unexplained resignation of Fred Wiederhold, the Inspector-General of Amtrak. The same Amtrak that's supposed to receive $1.3 billion in pork-barrel stimulus money, the same Amtrak on the board of which sits Hunter Biden, the son of the Vice-President, and the same Amtrak whose general counsel is a big Democratic donor.

That makes three IGs in three weeks.

Methinks I smell a RAT. Waiting

(hat tip: Instapundit.)

UPDATE: Byron York has more on the real reasons for firing the supposedly senile Inspector-General of AmeriCorps.
