Purple is the New Brown!

Now that the Dear Leader has snitch-lines up and running at the White House, what comes next? Enter the stormtroopers of organized labor. What the Brownshirts were to the streets of 1930's Germany, the Purpleshirts of the SEIU labor union are to us.

Cut and paste the Youtube link below to see one example of how Team Obama is trying to crush the Healthscare rebellion at town-hall meetings:

A Supreme Court justice who believes your right to keep and bear arms doesn't apply. Snitch lines so the federal government can track the speech and activities of political opponents. Legions of socialist labor thugs who can be massed anywhere, anytime. Berlin has nothing on the Chicago way.

The Tyranny of Empathy

Obama's "empathy" candidate Sonia Sotomayor was confirmed yesterday for the U.S. Supreme Court. All she had to do was lie and equivocate at the confirmation hearings about everything she has said and done for the last few decades. And that's a small price to pay for the greater good of liberal "social justice," right?

She has said numerous times in the past that a wise Latina woman would make a better decision than a white man. That's racist. She has said that appellate courts are where policy is made. That's judicial activism.

In January 2009, she signed a ruling that the Second Amendment does NOT apply to the States (so I guess you only have a right to keep and bear arms in D.C... oh, snap!). From's Matt Cover: "In Maloney v. Cuomo, Sotomayor signed an opinion of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit that said the Second Amendment does not protect individuals from having their right to keep and bear arms restricted by state governments."

In this case, a man was arrested in New York State for having a pair of nunchuks. Seriously.

Sotomayor has also said in the past that no judge can be objective. Hey, it's all about empathy. In her wise Latina mind, liberal protected classes are more equal than others. Yet, here is the oath that she will swear to uphold:
    "I, [NAME], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as [TITLE] under the Constitution and laws of the United States. So help me God."
-- Title 28, Chapter I, Part 453 of the United States Code

When asked at the confirmation hearings about how she could swear to uphold this oath despite her personal beliefs and past statements on the issue, she launched into a verbal tapdance and never answered the question.

When I swore my oath to support and defend the Constitution, if I had any reservations, I would have been dismissed from service.

Conservatives like me take oaths and the Constitution seriously and literally. Left-wing judges apparently don't have to.

Keep watch, America. And start stockpiling nunchuks now!

Green is the New Red

Van "I don't care what the facts look like" Jones is Obama's appointed "Green Jobs Czar."

Unelected, unconfirmed, unexamined, and unrepentant, he describes himself as a "Communist" and a "Revolutionary."

I'm not making this up.

With $60 billion to spend, not only has he not created a single "green job," he can't even explain what a green job is.

More here from Kathy Shaidle,

America, wake up before it's too late.

Some pictures speak for themselves.

First Lady Michelle Obama and France’s First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy attended a ceremony to mark the 65th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy at Colleville-sur-Mer cemetery, June 6, 2009.

One of them was grateful for America.

The other was Michelle Obama.
