And the lion shall lie down with the lamb, and the True Conservative with the RINO…

On a day when branches of the Right are barking at each other (1), I thought we could use a little humor. Presenting the latest NewsBusted, with the delectable Jodi Miller:

Sunday Night Linkapalooza

May 15, 2011

Sorry for the non-posting this weekend, folks. Yesterday was a busy one, and today was spent enjoying a beautiful if windy day by the sea in the People’s Republic of Santa Monica(1). But, we do have some links of interest. Enjoy:

Border Security and Terrorism:

Our porous southern border (I’d call operational control over only 873 miles of a 2,000 mile border “porous,” wouldn’t you?) isn’t just a swinging door for migrants seeking work or drug smugglers looking to sell their poison. Verum Serum posts an interview a San Diego station did with an undercover agent about Hizbullah’s presence in Mexico and its growing cooperation with the drug cartels. Meanwhile, Fausta updates us on Iranian training camps in northern South America, again financed through the drug trade.

Comforting, no?

Man-Caused Global Warming Can Hurt You:

Not the phenomenon itself, which is either nonexistent or so insignificant as to be barely measurable. No, what will hurt you is the belief among policymakers that they have to do something to solve a problem that exists only in their own minds. The latest example comes from Britain, where an historic agreement was reached at the price of, as James Delingpole puts it, destroying Britain. Pirate’s Cove catches a whiff of fascism. Anthony Watts suggests we pray for Britain; that may not be inappropriate, as the government seems set on a course of taking the nation back to the Dark Ages — as in lights out.

By the way, an Australian scientist who used to be in the “climate alarmist” camp has broken with the Church of Anthropogenic Global Warming and said the science behind it is garbage(2).

Israel and the Unending Middle East Peace Process:

Israel turned 63 this weekend. While the civilized world celebrates the birth of one of the most humane and ethical nations on Earth, Palestinians and other Arabs commemorate the occasion by calling it the “nakba,” the catastrophe, blaming Israel for the fact they shot themselves in the foot in 1948 and continue to do so to this day. The day was marked by mass-marches and border crossings, which may signal a new form of intifada.

Meanwhile, former Senator George Mitchell is resigning as President Obama’s special envoy to the region, a tacit admission of failure. Walter Russell Mead (always worth reading) takes this occasion to criticize the administration for its toxic mixture of arrogance and inexperience. Here’s a sample quote:

Let us hope that things change, but the bitter truth is that so far President Obama has the worst Middle East peace policy since US presidents first took a direct interest in the peace process back in the Nixon Administration.  No one has tried harder and accomplished less than President Obama.  After two years of high profile White House activism neither the Israelis nor the Palestinians think that this President can help them; neither side feels much need to work with Washington at this point.

An American president reduced to a nonentity in one of the most volatile regions of the world, one crucial to our security. Great.

Liberal Fascism Watch:

Finally, Bill Clinton says there should be a government agency to fight rumors and falsehoods on the Internet. Because Bill Clinton has always been a warrior for the truth. (Oh, stop laughing.) I mean, this would never be used to quash criticism of politicians, would it?

And we’re running a sale on the Brooklyn Bridge today, too.

Enjoy what’s left of your weekend, folks.

George W. Bush is a good man

August 12, 2010

Some soldiers returning from overseas got a special surprise today: former President Bush was there with his wife Laura to welcome them home. Here’s one photo:

I think it’s safe to say this soldier was surprised at the welcome.

Say what you like about Dubya’s policies while in office, or make fun of his malapropisms, but only a churl could deny that he is a class act and that he truly cares about the men and women he lead.

You can see the rest at the Facebook page of the DFW USO page.
