Why Shutting Down the Borders Is Urgent: Mexico Is Ground Zero for Swine Flu!

By John W. Lillpop

Apologists for Mexico and most, but not all, Democrats ask a recurring question about the swine flu crisis: "How will closing the U.S.-Mexico border keep out the swine flu, when the swine flu is already in the country?"

Answer:

Shutting down the border would prevent people most likely to have swine flu--Mexicans--from entering America and bringing with them even more infections.

Of course, closing the border will do nothing to prevent the spread of the disease from people already here.

However, Mexico is the point of origin for the swine flu and remains ground zero for the deadly disease.

Mexico is the nation with the greatest number of infections, deaths, and hospitalizations. Mexico has essentially shut itself down n order to contain the disease.

Illegal aliens from Mexico are especially dangerous because most are impoverished and do not have access to decent health care.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has ratcheted up the swine flu alert and warns that "all of humanity is threatened" by the deadly disease, which originated in Mexico.

Please note that even one of the delegation staff members in President Obama's recent trip to Mexico came in contact with the disease and three of that man's family members have since tested positive for the swine flu.

A Mexican who helped host President Obama during his trip to Mexico, and who shook Obama's hand, died hours after Obama's
visit.

Joe Biden made some strong remarks about the crisis that bordered on common sense, until Obama's transparency police throttled the foot in the mouth prone VP.

The only death in the United States (thus far) attributable to swine flu was a toddler from Mexico; said child was in the U.S. seeking treatment.

Mexico is the problem.

Since Mexico is the source of the problem, prudence dictates that America shut down the borders and keep even more infected Mexicans from crossing our borders, legally or otherwise.

In much the same way as Cuba and Argentina have banned air travel to and from Mexico.

Mexico is the problem.

That is not anti-Mexican racism. Rather, it is a bitter fact that our president, Congress, and responsible Americans had better address, and damn soon.

Mexico is the problem!

Janet Napolitano's "Passive Surveillance" for Detecting Mexican Swine Flu



Homeland Security guru Janet Napolitano looks out the window of Airforce One for veterans, tax protestors, abortion and illegal alien opponents, and other "right wing extremists" in need of smiting by the government.




Satire by John W. Lillpop

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano has stressed that the swine flu crisis is being handled properly and with the full weight and authority of the United States government behind the effort.

She has repeatedly stressed that there is no need to restrict flights to and from Mexico, and that there is no need to close the borders.

In fact, it is the contention of the top dog at DHS that her "passive surveillance" is the most effective protection measure that can be implemented.

This reporter caught up with Napolitano as she was about to execute a "Passive Surveillance" stress test on a flight that had just landed at LAX from Mexico City.

As the 157 passengers deplaned at Gate 22A, America's feisty DHS girl started the process by selecting a few passengers for surveillance.

Most of the passengers were Hispanics in the 25-40-age bracket, several of which coughed incessantly while complaining of anemia and stomach cramps.

None of the Hispanics was waved aside for surveillance.

However, Napolitano personally selected 15 Caucasian males in the 55-80-age bracket for examination.

The "passive surveillance" questionnaire was read to each of the 15 white passengers who were placed under oath and advised that false responses could lead to prosecution for perjury.

Each passenger was asked five relevant questions

( ) Are you a veteran, conservative Republican, right-leaning independent, evangelical Christian, or member of any other subversive group commonly known in law as a "right-wing extremist?"

( ) Do you own a firearm, more than two Bibles, a surgical face mask, a broad band Internet connection, or any other weapon of mass destruction?

( ) Have you ever protested the tax policies of the Obama administration while under the influence of tea?

( ) Do you support closed borders, rigid enforcement of immigration laws, deportation of illegal aliens, English only, and other anti-Mexican torture?

( ) Have you ever refused sexual advances from another male based on religious, moral, or medical biases?

Any passenger who answered YES to one or more of the questions was confronted with a sixth question:

( ) Why do you hate President Obama and CHANGE?


Those who answered YES to three or more questions were immediately placed under arrest and returned to Mexico on the next flight.

Asked what her "passive surveillance" questions had to do with detecting the deadly the swine flu, Napolitano flashed a wicked smile and admitted, "Not a whole hell of a lot. But it does help weed out some of the far more dangerous right-wing extremist kooks!"

Swine Flu in the Obama White House?


By John W. Lillpop


President Obama earned kudos for his cool and collected approach to the Mexican swine flu crisis. Left wing nut balls and mainstream media alike were ecstatic over the new president's ability to remain calm when the logical thing to do was to go ballistic.

Unfortunately for Obama, two recent developments leave his cool and calm demeanor looking more and more like raw incompetence and stunted intelligence.

The first wrinkle was the World Health Organization's escalation of the Mexican crisis to the next to highest level AND announcement that "all of humanity is threatened" by Mexico's mess.

Things got even worse. Press Secretary Gibbs announced that the White House has issued a health advisory to all who traveled with the president during his recent trip to Mexico.

As reported at politico, in part:

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0409/21940.html

"The White House has issued a health advisory outlining "protective measures" for anyone who traveled on President Barack Obama’s trip to Mexico after a member of the U.S. delegation came down with flu-like symptoms – and tests on his family showed they’re probably infected with the swine flu.

"The individual – an advance security staffer for Energy Secretary Steven Chu –appears to have spread the flu to his wife, son and nephew. All three have tested probable for swine flu, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Thursday.

"Gibbs, who did not name the security aide, said he did not work closely with Obama, didn’t fly on Air Force One and is back at work at the Energy Department.

"But the staffer was at a working dinner Obama attended with Mexican officials April 16. The aide “was asked specifically if he ever came within six feet of the president, and the answer to that was 'No,' " Gibbs said.

“The president has not experienced any symptoms,” Gibbs said. He said Obama and other aides are “highly, highly, highly unlikely” to develop such symptoms now because of the time that has passed since Obama’s visit on April 16 and 17 and the relatively short incubation period for the flu virus, known as H1N1. "

An Obama staff member has spread swine flu to his wife, son, and nephew? A gentleman who shook Obama's hand in Mexico died hours later from the swine flu?

And there is no reason for alarm?


How about a pathetic whimper, Mr. President?

"All of Humanity Threatened" by Mexican Flu: Shut Borders, Forget Amnesty!

By John W. Lillpop

The World Health Organization (WHO) has ratcheted up the swine flu alert and warns that "all of humanity is threatened" by the deadly disease, which originated in Mexico.

As reported, in part, at Yahoo.com:

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090430/ap_on_he_me/med_swine_flu

"Mexico readied a "temporarily closed" sign — taking the drastic step of ordering a suspension of nonessential federal government and private business activity as it tried to squelch a swine flu epidemic. The World Health Organization ratcheted up an alert and warned that "all of humanity" is threatened.

"The dire warning showed that world health officials are very worried about the potential for massive numbers of deaths worldwide from the mutated virus, even though the epidemic so far has claimed only a confirmed eight lives in Mexico and one in the United States. Roughly 170 deaths are suspected of having been caused by the virus in Mexico.

"The Phase 5 alert, indicating a pandemic could be imminent as the virus spread further in Europe, prompted Mexico to announce the partial May 1-5 shutdown, Mexican Health Secretary Jose Cordova said late Wednesday."

While the rest of the world moves to combat this grave threat in a responsible manner, Democrat politicians in America refuse to enforce the law or take other common sense steps to protect American citizens.

To begin with, President Obama and Homeland Security boss Janet Napolitano have ruled out closing the borders with Mexico, which is the source of the wretched disease.

Moreover, the Democrat-majority Senate is scheduled to begin hearings on "Comprehensive Immigration Reform," Washington-speak for amnesty for tens of millions of illegal aliens, the overwhelming majority of whom are from Mexico, again the source of the swine flu.

Given the fact that "all of humanity is threatened" by disease from Mexico, our political leaders should immediately shut down the border to stop the further flow of illegal aliens into this nation.

In addition, because of the precarious state of the American economy, it should be abundantly clear that America can no longer afford to feed, house, educate, and provide medical care for tens of millions of foreign, non-English speaking aliens who have violated U.S. borders and laws and who have no legal basis for being here.

President Obama and Democrats on Capitol Hill need to place the interests of the American people first and foremost by securing the border, terminating all plans for amnesty, and by deporting illegal aliens already here back to Mexico.

THAT is change that this nation desperately needs!

Open Letter to President Obama Regarding Amnesty











April 29, 2009

President Barack Obama
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington, D.C.

Dear President Obama:

As you are well aware, America is in the throes of an economic crisis of such grave consequence that former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan described it as a "once in a hundred years" occurrence, which would make it potentially more devastating than the Great Depression.

In reacting to this once in a century crisis, your administration and that of your predecessor have committed trillions of dollars of taxpayer money to purchase bad debt from failing U.S. banks and other financial institutions, and to stimulate the sputtering economy.

We Americans face other overwhelming economic challenges: Social Security and Medicare are reportedly headed toward insolvency. You would like to implement universal health care, and our nation absolutely must achieve energy independence for both national security and economic security reasons.

Furthermore, this nation and the entire world is facing an enormous challenge in combating a new, deadly strain of swine flu. This devastating medical crisis originated in Mexico, and may soon be officially designated as a pandemic by the World Health Organization.

Given the swine flu crisis and the already precarious state of the nation's economy, is it not clear that America can no longer afford to feed, house, educate, and provide medical care for tens of millions of foreign, non-English speaking aliens who have violated U.S. borders and laws and who have no legal basis for being here?

With all due respect, Mr. President, your advocacy on behalf of illegal aliens ignores the medical, economic, social, educational, and cultural burdens that would be unfairly dumped on the backs of American citizens, most of whom are also taxpayers.

Illegal aliens currently here already cost taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars each year. Amnesty would dump additional billions onto the backs of overtaxed citizens.

Moreover, a significant majority of illegal aliens in America are from swine-flu ravaged Mexico and, as such, must be regarded as potential carriers of the new swine flu killer.

Mr. President, "comprehensive reform" anything like the McCain-Kennedy proposals from the summer of 2007 would simply encourage additional millions of people now living in Mexico to come here illegally.

That would bring even more disease to the U.S. and would further jeopardize homeland security, thereby adding more distress to American citizens.

Mr. President, in light of the severe medical crisis and economic meltdown facing the American people, why not embrace a plan that immediately secures our borders, deports those here illegally, and requires an orderly and lawful process for all people wishing to migrate to America?

Why not a plan that respects American citizens and honors immigrants who stand in line, wait their turn, and follow the rules?

Why not a plan that is America First, even mildly jingoistic?

Why not abandon that commitment to amnesty and replace it with a vow to restore the rule of law to our suffering nation?

Why not a plan to bail out American citizens from the devastation that illegal aliens have brought, and threaten to bring, to our homeland?

Thank you for your consideration, Mr. President.

Sincerely,

John W. Lillpop

First Swine Flu Fatality in America: Time for Alarm, President Obama!


By John W. Lillpop


America's cool, calm, and collected president charmed the mainstream media with his sophisticated approach to the swine flu crisis.

Speaking from the relatively safe confines of the Oval Office after he was personally tested for the deadly disease and found to be "swine free," excepting certain cabinet members of course, President Obama lectured the unwashed masses with the reassuring words that the Mexican flu was cause for "concern, but not alarm."

Homeland Security boss Janet Napolitano echoed Obama's benign neglect by announcing that the borders with Mexico would not be closed. Napolitano continued to violate her Constitutionally mandated obligations by demanding that the term "swine" be omitted from public discourse about swine flu, in deference to the agitated pork industry.

Obama and Napolitano made their clarion calls for alarm-free reaction immediately after the U.S. government officially declared the non-swine concern to be a "public health emergency."

Tragically, a toddler in Texas has died with cause of death attributed to the swine flu.

As reported at CNN, in part:

http://www.cnn.com/2009/HEALTH/04/29/swine.flu/index.html

"ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) -- A child in Texas has become the first fatality from swine flu in the United States, the acting director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Wednesday.

"I can confirm the very sad news out of Texas that a child has died of the H1N1 virus," the CDC's Dr. Richard Besser said.
"As a parent and a pediatrician, my heart goes out to the family.

He said the child was about 2 years old."

With all due respect to President Obama and Secretary Napolitano, it would appear that this crisis is now cause for full- throated alarm, and less "concern" about what to call the damn disease.

Americans are dying because of this killer disease.

Time to do the responsible thing: SHUT DOWN THE BORDER AND BUILD THAT FENCE!

Will W. Campaign (Again) for Specter in 2010?

By John W. Lillpop

In the 2004 Republican primary, Pat Toomey challenged incumbent Senator Arlene Specter (R-Pa) for the right to represent the GOP in the general election in November.

Toomey brought strong conservative credentials to the fray, and had a reasonable chance at deposing the left-leaning Specter who had "served" in the U.S. Senate for 24 years.

Unfortunately, Toomey's rock solid conservatism was no match for Specter's major advantage: President George W. Bush endorsed Arlene Specter for reelection and campaigned for the man who epitomized the term RINO.

Specter won the primary and the general election in 2004 and has worked tirelessly since to defeat just about every conservative concept advanced over the past five years.

No politician is held in higher contempt by conservatives than the raspy voiced senator from Pennsylvania.

The tragedy is that George W. Bush could have supported the more conservative Toomey over the liberal Specter, an act that may have led to two very positive developments:

The U.S. Senate would have gained a diehard conservative, while the Republican party would have removed a tired old nemesis from among their ranks.

Bush, being the addled liberal that he was, chose to endorse Specter.

That bitter pill from the Bush legacy came back to haunt the GOP and America when Specter finally officially crossed over to the dark side leaving the Obama socialists with a filibuster-proof majority.

Once again, the inept and mindless George W. Bush participates directly in the ruination of America.

The only question is whether this disturbed man (Bush) will campaign for Specter in 2010?

Cuba Suspends Flights to and From Mexico: Is It Racism?


By John W. Lillpop


Left wing apologists, fresh out of arguments against those who advocate swift, firm action to contain the swine flu crisis within the originating state of Mexico, have resorted to indiscriminate abuse of the R word.

As a result, those that would close borders, refuse to accept meat and food products from Mexico, and promote other common sense measure to protect their people are automatically branded as bigoted racists.

This, in spite of the fact that Mexico is a nation and Mexicans are those who live in Mexico, neither of which has anything whatsoever to do with race.

An excellent example of how lame the racism argument is made headline news today, when it was reported that Cuba has shut down all flights into and out of Mexico.

As reported at Yahoo.com, in part:

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090428/ap_on_he_me/med_swine_flu

"Cuba suspended flights to and from Mexico on Tuesday, becoming the first country to impose a travel ban, as the fast-moving swine flu strain extended its reach overseas and in the United States.

"World health officials in Geneva said they believed the virus appears to be establishing itself in communities and be able to produce larger outbreaks outside Mexico. In the U.S., there were new reports of hospitalizations among those affected, and officials are watching for a potential flu pandemic.

"It's a very serious possibility, but it is still too early to say that this is inevitable," the World Health Organization's flu chief, Dr. Keiji Fukuda, told a telephone news conference.

"The global health body insisted that travel restrictions were ineffective, but Cuba's 48-hour suspension came as the EU's disease control agency as well as Canada, Israel and France warned against nonessential travel to Mexico."

The big question: By restricting travel to and from Mexico, is Cuba guilty of allowing the ugly head of racism to taint its international relations?

If so, that would be most peculiar since Cuba's population is predominantly Hispanic and the national language is Spanish!

Clearly, serious life and death issues are at stake here.

It is way past time for Mexican apologists to get the hell out of denial by putting the R word into forced retirement!

Barack Obama's "Bad Hair" Monday

Satire by John W. Lillpop


All things considered, President Obama probably should have called in sick Monday morning.

His call off would have been accepted without question by the American people, given the dreadful swine flu crisis and Obama's recent trip to Mexico, including shaking the hand of a Mexican host who died hours later. Clearly, this president had a valid need for a little down time.

Nonetheless, Obama showed up at the Oval Office, gung ho to bring more CHANGE to a nation slowly awakening to the fact that Obama-sponsored change does not necessarily mean for the better.

Ever the work alcoholic optimist, Obama realized that there were scads of apologies to be issued for America's boorish behavior from noon, January 20, 2001 to noon, January 20, 2009.

There were Latin American dictators to appease, Islamofascists and a North Korean mad man whom needed a stern talking to, and more ultra-sensitive CIA memos to be released in order to justify the arrest and prosecution of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney and their cronies for mistreating the mastermind behind 9/11.

Domestically, there were overlooked remnants of American wealth to find and waste on goofy liberal projects, banks, insurance, and auto companies to seize, and mega-trillion dollar annual deficits to create in the "out" years.

Then there was all the hype about the Mexican swine flu crisis, which, if conditions continued to deteriorate, would require Team Obama to take time from their busy schedules to deflect responsibility from Obama with an appropriate press release along the lines of the following:

"The Mexican swine flu is yet another "inherited" crisis from former President George W. Bush. Thank goodness, America has voted for change from the failed policies of Bush and his administration of right-wing extremists!

When you think about it, W's continued good health, and availability as Obama's "go to" guy when a mea culpa is called for, may be more important to Obama than it is to W. himself.

But back to Obama's bad hair day.

To begin his day, Obama delighted a group of scientists by showing his leadership skills in a one-on-one struggle with his edgy teleprompter. In the end, the president prevailed over his inanimate aide-to-camp, although his message got lost in the mirth and merriment generated by the impromptu presidential comedy.

Next, Obama received word that Air Force One had delighted the City of New York by buzzing Lower Manhattan.

Started New York residents, including the city's uninformed Mayor Michael Bloomberg, ran about in a panic, fearful that the terrorist attacks of 9/11 were being repeated.

Da Mayor and the unwashed millions of NYC were not the least bit amused when told that the buzzing was nothing more than a photo op carried out to update the Air Force One photo library.

Scratch another ten million or so dunderheads from among those dedicated to Obamamania!

In the midst of all those fumbles, Obama's day was not without its bright moments. For example, a new poll shows that 75 percent of Americans do not fault the president for not picking a Surgeon General nearly 100 days after his deification on January 20.

Which makes perfect sense given Obama's wonky record when it comes to cabinet appointments!

27.4.09

Does America Really Need a Surgeon General?


By John W. Lillpop


Say what you will about George W. Bush and the Katrina debacle, at least W. had "Brownie" in place at FEMA to deal with the details.

This Obama fellow, on the other hand, has failed even to nominate a person for the important position of Surgeon General. This failure is particularly bothersome as America confronts the new deadly Mexican swine flu, which has the potential to become a global pandemic.

Although the Obama administration has declared a "Public Health Emergency," administration sources contend that having a Surgeon General in place during such a monumental crisis is not all that essential.

Or to be more precise, not having a Surgeon General does not mean that President Obama is derelict in filling important positions.

As reported, in part, at Politico.com:

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0409/21719.html

"The Obama administration declared a “public health emergency” Sunday to confront the swine flu — but is heading into its first medical outbreak without a secretary of Health and Human Services or appointees in any of the department’s 19 key posts.

"White House press secretary Robert Gibbs insisted the vacancies won’t hinder Obama’s response.

“I want to be very clear here: There is a team in place. Part of it is standing behind me, and part of it working as we speak to identify exactly what [Besser] and others have talked about,” Gibbs said.

“This notion that somehow that if there is not currently a secretary, that there is not the function that needs to take place to prepare for either this or any other situation is just simply not the case.” “I think it’s all hands on deck, and we’re doing fine,” Gibbs said."
Gibbs neglected to point out that, given Obama's wretched personnel decisions to date, the nation is probably better off with the positions left unfilled.

A burning question as of yet unanswered: Just why has Obama failed to fill this position 100 days into his presidency?

Perhaps the president has been unable to find a leftist doctor who has paid his or her taxes?

Then there is always the possibility that the new president has been busy, far too busy in fact, to worry about the nation's health.

Obama has no doubt been driven to complete other high priority items like bad-mouthing America on foreign soil to anyone that will listen; shutting down Guantánamo; risking American homeland security by releasing highly sensitive CIA memos; ridiculing the disabled on national television; bowing to foreign kings; acting as HR manager for General Motors; hobnobbing with Latin America dictators, and bankrupting future generations of Americans with outrageous spending on unneeded and unwanted liberal nonsense.

With all of that on his plate, it is easy to understand why picking a Surgeon General is not on this president's short list of To Do items.

Celebrating Cinco de Mayo Day While Fighting Swine Flu







Satire by John W. Lillpop


May 5th enjoys a special place in the hearts of Mexican illegal aliens in America. From taking over the streets of major cities to demand "rights" to which they are not entitled, to unruly brawls, Cinco de Mayo captures the true spirit of Mexico and the invading Mexican.

However, this May 5th brings with it news of a major health issue that might put a damper on the party mood of even the most thirsty and dedicated invader.

Indeed, the swine flu crisis may cause more than a few illegal aliens to think twice before gathering in huge crowds to protest the rule of law, the inconvenience caused by that pesky U.S. border, and other racist measures that get it the way of the Reconquesta objective.

Thinking twice is not all that common among illegal aliens, which is why they are so well suited as potential Democrats, and is why this Cinco de Mayo may be a golden moment in the braceros of East Los Angeles and other U.S. soil occupied by foreigners.

From the perspective of this American patriot, I say, "Let the show go on as usual!"

Let millions of illegal aliens take over the street of Los Angeles, Dallas, Chicago, Atlanta, Boston, San Francisco, and New York City.

Let them march with their Mexican flags while screaming "Amnesty Now!"

Let them carry their "Yes, we can!" banners in Spanish as they wind through the street of San Francisco and other Sanctuary Cities run by dim wit liberals more concerned about trolling for Hispanic votes than doing what is right for America.

Let them hold a Cinco de Mayo parade with Janet Napolitano perched appropriately on the lead float to keep an eye out for vets, tax protesters, "right wing extremists" and other dangerous Americans.

Oh, and by the way, while these third-world renegades are gathered so conveniently, why not send in the INS and a battalion of medical doctors to test for the swine flu?

Why not "stimulate" the U.S. economy by hiring unemployed American citizens to load infected aliens into buses, cabs, cars, and other means of transport, and to drive said vehicles back to the Mexican border, where they will be unloaded to the care and attention of Felipe Calderon?

That would be a grand way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo Day while working to stimulate the economy and protect the health of American citizens!

And who knows, by May 5th President Obama may have stopped bad-mouthing America long enough to appoint a Surgeon General. One who pays his or her taxes and is capable of understanding the swine flu!

Happy 5th of May!

Swine Flu Crisis Proves Danger in Refusing to Enforce Immigration Laws



John W. Lillpop



Those who oppose rigid border security and enforcement of America's immigration laws bristle sharply whenever the term illegal, as in illegal aliens, is used to describe--well, illegal aliens. They prefer the more politically correct "undocumented" when describing those whom have willfully violated our borders and are here unlawfully.

Such people tend to believe that invading this sovereign nation is less of a crime than being a "right wing extremist," and would also like you to believe that the typical illegal alien is simply missing an unnecessary piece of paper designed by some fat, white, Bible-thumping and toothless red neck to keep people of color out.

However, there are plenty of good reasons why forcing people to jump through hoops before being admitted into the American family are perfectly valid and sound.

To begin with, those seeking to enter this nation legally, rather than by simply jumping a fence and heading north,are subjected to a series of checks to examine crime, health, and financial background. The objective is to protect American citizens from newcomers with a history of crime who might also become a financial or medical burden on society.

This means that those aspiring to migrate to the U.S. legally are examined by medical professionals trained to detect maladies like the swine flu.

As it is, there are between 12 and 38 million illegal aliens residing in America, mostly from third-world nations.

Because all came here illegally, our government knows nothing about these people. Repeat NOTHING!

How many are carriers of TB or other diseases long ago eradicated here but still persistent in the third world? How many have criminal records, including violent crimes like rape and murder? How many are financially reckless and likely to become a burden on American taxpayers?

Most importantly today, how many are infected with swine flu?

The answers to these and other vital questions cannot be answered because a series of presidents and Congresses, from both political parties, have refused to enforce our immigration laws.

At this point, no one knows how devastating the Mexican swine flu will be.

One thing is a certainty, however: Politicians elected to uphold the laws of this nation had damn well better start doing just that, or this nation may not exist much longer!

"We the People" to Blame for Mexico's Swine Flu?


Satire By John W. Lillpop


Mexico's civil war, involving drug cartels and the murder of more than 6,000 Mexicans in 2008 alone, has been blamed on We the People.

According to American liberals and the Mexican government, were it not for the insatiable American appetite for illegal drugs, Mexico's notorious drug lords would content to live in abject poverty as mud farmers.

Were it not for Yankee dinero and the never ending American addiction to being high, Mexican thugs who decapitate law enforcement officials and use nitric acid to reduce their remains to bones, would be choir boys in the Catholic Church.

It's the same story line for the entire illegal alien mess. America is to blame, you see, for being successful and prosperous. How dare arrogant Americans flaunt their wealth and power in the face of Mexico's third-world poverty?

America the Great is to blame for the fact that Mexico cannot educate, feed, house, and provide health care for its citizens.

Indeed, if America were not so smugly well off, there would be no "carrot" to lure impoverished Mexicans into a life of crime as invaders.

It is all our fault!

So it is with the swine flu.

According to Obama spokespeople, the current crisis is an "inherited medical calamity" from the Bush administration, said crisis clearly linked to Katrina, missing WMD in Iraq, the collapse of General Motors, and other Bush legacy items.

If that line of malarkey does not fool you, Obama and Napolitano have another batch of snake oil ready for passing out to the public: Swine flu is a direct result of our insatiable appetite for ham, bacon, hot dogs, and other pork products.

That is, Mexico is simply feeding American's lust for pork--if that lust did not exist, Mexicans would not cavort with pigs and swine flu would not exist.

The cure? How about a two-seat water board for Felipe Calderon and Janet Napolitano?

Might not solve anything, but the laughs might relieve some of the pain!

Mr. Obama: SHUT DOWN THIS BORDER AND BUILD THAT FENCE!













By John W. Lillpop


Ronald Reagan made history when he stood in front of the Berlin Wall and demanded,"Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!"

Reagan's admonition was based on his desire to do what was right for the people of Germany and the world. In time, Reagan's words and deeds brought about the tearing down of that wall,the end of the Red menace known as the Soviet Union, and victory for America in the Cold War.

In 2009, the American people need another courageous and bold move by the president.

This time, however, we need for our president to demand that a fence be built to prevent the flow of disease, poverty, drugs, and illegal aliens into America. That must be the first priority for President Obama after he shuts down the Mexican border.

There is no longer any question: Mexico is the incubator for a deadly new swine flu that could turn into a pandemic. The time for bowing to kings and coddling to Latin dictators is over--we need a leader who is capable of acting on behalf of America!

Ever so often, a national crisis or potential crisis is of such grave consequence that even a stray Democrat will cross over to the light side and employ common sense and good will on behalf of American citizens.

Such appears to be the case with regard to the swine flu virus from Mexico that is threatening to explode into a full-scale pandemic.

As reported at thehill.com, in part:

http://thehill.com/leading-the-news/lawmaker-wants-border-closed-over-swine-flu-2009-04-25.html

"The "swine flu" that has infected more than 1,000 people in Mexico has led a lawmaker on the House Homeland Security Committee to call on U.S. officials to close the southern border.

"Rep. Eric Massa (D-N.Y.) said the border should be closed until the threat is resolved.

"The public needs to be aware of the serious threat of swine flu, and we need to close our borders to Mexico immediately and completely until this is resolved," Massa said in a statement.

"I am making this announcement because I see this as a serious threat to the health of the American public and I do not believe this issue is receiving the attention it needs to have in the news," Massa said."

Bravo to Rep. Massa for having the courage and intelligence to do what is best for America. Placing American citizens first is the responsibility of all elected officials in this land, and it is about time that those holding office live up to their constitutional responsibility.

Got that President Obama, Janet Napolitano, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid?

Coddling to Mexico and the illegal alien demographic that most Democrats worship is very dangerous and traitorous when American lives and property are in peril.

However, Rep. Massa's demand does not go quite far enough:

The borders with Mexico should be closed permanently with military force, and illegal aliens now in America should be rounded up and deported back to Mexico.

Viva America!

Democrat Lawmaker: CLOSE MEXICAN BORDER!













Democrat Lawmaker: CLOSE MEXICAN BORDER!

By John W. Lillpop

Ever so often, a national crisis or potential crisis will be of such grave consequence that even a stray Democrat will cross over to the light side and employ common sense and good will on behalf of American citizens.

Such appears to be the case with regard to the swine flu virus from Mexico that is threatening to explode into a full-scale pandemic.

Wherever There Is a Mexican, There Is Swine Flu!
















Satire by John W. Lillpop

In his state of the union address to the Mexican nation in 2007, President Felipe Calderon established the rights of Mexicans to invade America with a mangled sense of illogic that would make sense only to another loco native.

As reported at CNN.com, in part:

"Mexican President Felipe Calderon Sunday demanded the United States surrender its sovereignty, abandon the rule of law and accede to Mexico's inherent supremacy.

"I have said that Mexico does not stop at its border, that wherever there is a Mexican, there is Mexico. And, for this reason, the government action on behalf of our countrymen is guided by principles, for the defense and protection of their rights."


The demented Calderon was referring to the "right" of tens of millions of illiterate peasants to invade America.

Wonder why he did not also assert, "Where there is a Guatemalan, there is Guatemala." Or, "Where there is a Nicuagaran, there is Niagara."

Perhaps Calderon's enthusiasm for invading criminals applies only to Mexicans invading America and not other nationals invading Mexico?

Less than two years after his memorable tirade, the Calderon message has been revised to, "Wherever There Is a Mexican, There Is Swine Flu!"

It is way past time that America shove this tinhorn bandito back into his box and prevent invading Mexicans and their swine flu from bringing their disease to America!

No Doubt About It: Mexico IS Failed State!


By John W. Lillpop



Much controversy has resulted from claims that Mexico is a failed state.

For their part, Mexican authorities such as Felipe Calderon remain in denial and reject any suggestion that their third-world nation is failed, or even headed in that direction.

Calderon is joined by Mexican apologists in America, mostly liberals who want to import as many illiterate Mexicans as possible in order to grow the ranks of the Democrat party. The interests of American citizens are irrelevant to these mindless liberals.

Despite protestations to the contrary, it is becoming more obvious every day that Mexico is no longer a viable state. This statement is supported by the facts cited below.


*********************
Swine Flu Outbreak
*********************


A devastating and deadly form of swine flu has taken hold in Mexico and threatens to become a global pandemic. Schools, libraries, museums, and other public gathering places in Mexico City have been literally shut down and millions of students sent home.

Mexicans are advised not to shake hands with one another or exchange kisses. Face masks are replacing the sombrero as the national head dress.


*****************************
Drug Cartels and Civil War
*****************************


U.S. authorities responsible for the well being of Americans as they travel to and from foreign nations have been rather blunt in recent warnings and alerts about traveling to Mexico.

As reported at counton2.com, in part:

"The U.S. government says Mexico’s bloody drug war is a growing threat to tourists. Now, as college students start planning their spring breaks, the U.S. State Department has a new warning about traveling to Mexico.

This is the image Mexico wants American tourists to see: beautiful beaches, party time!

But recently, this is more the reality: a drug war that is spiraling out of control."


***********************************************************
Students Warned About Spring Break in Mexico
***********************************************************


In addition, university and college administrations are cautioning American students against taking spring vacations south of the border, owing to the carnage and violence.

As reported at ajc.com, in part:

"The U.S. State Department and universities around the country are warning college students headed for Mexico for some spring-break partying of a surge in drug-related murder and mayhem south of the border.

'We’re not necessarily telling students not to go, but we’re going to certainly alert them,' said Tom Dougan, vice president for student affairs at the University of Rhode Island. 'There have been Americans kidnapped, and if you go you need to be very aware and very alert to this fact.'

***********************************************************
Potential for Collapse Likened To Pakistan
***********************************************************


Mexico's overall stability and ability to function has also come into serious question. As reported recently in the El Paso times, in part:

"Mexico is one of two countries that 'bear consideration for a rapid and sudden collapse,' according to a report by the U.S. Joint Forces Command on worldwide security threats.

The command's 'Joint Operating Environment (JOE 2008)' report, which contains projections of global threats and potential next wars, puts Pakistan on the same level as Mexico.

In terms of worse-case scenarios for the Joint Force and indeed the world, two large and important states bear consideration for a rapid and sudden collapse: Pakistan and Mexico.

In the foreword, Marine Gen. J.N. Mattis, the USJFC commander, said 'Predictions about the future are always risky ... Regardless, if we do not try to forecast the future, there is no doubt that we will be caught off guard as we strive to protect this experiment in democracy that we call America.'

The report is one in a series focusing on Mexico's internal security problems, mostly stemming from drug violence and drug corruption. In recent weeks, the Department of Homeland Security and former U.S. drug czar Barry McCaffrey issued similar alerts about Mexico."


***************************************
Human Rights Record Assailed

***************************************

In more bad news for the third-world nation, Mexico's human rights efforts are falling short of its good intentions, says a report by Amnesty International.

As reported at thestar.com, in part:

"There is ingrained impunity for human rights violations," said Rupert Knox, a Mexico researcher with the London-based organization. The government talks about rights in general terms. But what's lacking is a dynamic commitment that has some impact on the ground.'

Arbitrary detention, torture, sexual violence and unlawful killings by security officials have escalated during government security operations to combat violent criminal gangs, said the report, tabled this week as the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva reviews Mexico's human rights performance.

Although the government's list of 'positive initiatives and reforms is good news,' there was no information about how to end the rights violations, and the impunity that goes with them, it said.

Mexico has not commented on the report, but it has taken steps to reform its police forces by creating new procedures for training and screening police recruits.

Human rights organizations have been critical of Mexico's escalating violence, as the country battles warring drug cartels that have caused the death of some 6,000 people in the past year.

Mexico's own National Human Rights Commission has documented rights violations – including torture and arbitrary arrest by the armed forces – but without any resulting drop in reported incidents. Critics have called for investigations and prosecution of perpetrators of abuses.

Meanwhile, ongoing bloodshed and a fraying economy have undermined support for President Felipe Calderon's conservative government, and a recent poll shows public confidence sliding ahead of mid-term elections in July. "

*****************************************************
Do Not Drink The Water Or Eat The Pozole!
*****************************************************

Pozole is the name of a very popular Mexican stew, which includes a rich variety of meats, vegetables and seasonings.

However, hungry amigos in Mexico are thinking twice before ordering the spicy delicacy after it was disclosed that Santiago Meza López, known as “el Pozolero” in the Mexican news media, has confessed to dissolving the remains of 300 people in acid while working for a top drug trafficker.

In English, "el Pozolero" means "The Stew Maker."

As reported by Reuters, in part:

"A Mexican drug suspect has confessed to dissolving the bodies of 300 rivals with corrosive chemicals near the U.S. border, in a claim highlighting the brutality of Mexico`s drug war.

Santiago Meza, known as "The Stew Maker," told journalists he did away with bodies in industrial drums on the outskirts of the violent city of Tijuana.

More than 700 people died in Tijuana last year as rival gangs battled for control of the city`s lucrative drug trade. Many others are missing and believed dead after being abducted.

The suspect, who was paraded before journalists by the army on Friday, said he was paid $600 a week by a breakaway faction of the Arellano Felix cartel to dispose of slain rivals with caustic soda, a highly corrosive substance.

'They brought me the bodies and I just got rid of them,' Meza said at a construction site where he said he dissolved 300 corpses last year. 'I didn`t feel anything.'

'The bodies took 24 hours to dissolve but left some remains that were dumped in a nearby pit,' Meza said.

A high-ranking army officer told Reuters he believed Meza, who was arrested with three other people on Thursday, was telling the truth.

Police have previously recovered human remains burned with acid in and around the city.

Meza, 45, said he had been getting rid of bodies for 10 years.

'May they forgive me,' he said, surrounded by heavily armed soldiers.

The spiraling violence of Mexico`s drug war has cast a pall over the country and presents a huge challenge to President Felipe Calderon, who has deployed thousands of troops to crush the cartels.

The drug war claimed 5,700 lives across Mexico last year, more than double the number of victims in 2007. "

*************************************
President Calderon: Not So!
*************************************

Despite all evidence to the contrary AND the fact that Mexico is unable to feed, house, educate, and provide medical care for it's own citizens, President Felipe Calderon is adamant in denying that Mexico is a "failed state."

'To say that Mexico is a failed state is absolutely false,' Calderon said."

Until this man accepts the truth, there is no chance that Mexico can recover.

*********************************
Absolutely false, Mr. President?
*********************************


Then please make immediate arrangements to take the 12-40 million illegal aliens now free loading in America back to Mexico where your non-failed state can be responsible for feeding, educating, housing, and providing health care for said invaders!

Obama's First 100 Days: Can America Survive Another 100?


















By John W. Lillpop

State of the Union after Barack Obama's first 100 Days:

Taliban forces are raising hell in Pakistan and, if they are successful, that nation's nuclear arsenal will be turned over to Osama bin Laden. Iran continues it's relentless drive toward membership in the nuclear club while denouncing Israel. North Korea fires missiles and rockets at will.

Recent events in Iraq suggest a surge in the insurgency there. The left's pet project in Afghanistan is going badly and according to some military types, the war there may be lost.

Mexico appears to be the source of a new and deadly swine flu that could become a global pandemic, while violence and murder from civil war spills over into the U.S.

America's economy continues to deteriorate with scant evidence of the millions of new jobs that the stimulus lark was supposed to produce.

Losing "only" $1.4 billion dollars in the first quarter causes Ford Motor stock to rise, while executives at Chrysler and GM spend their hours trying to finagle additional billions from the U.S. treasury before filing bankruptcy.

Homeland Security boss Janet Napolitano has trained her sights on vets and other right-wing extremists while offering her blessings to illegal aliens.

Meanwhile, President Obama spends his time bowing to foreign kings, playing Human Resources manager for the auto industry, cavorting with Latin American dictators, bad-mouthing America to anyone who will listen, and banning "harsh interrogation" techniques that proved effective in saving Los Angeles.

THIS is change we need?

BREAKING NEWS UPDATE: Swine Flu Shutting Down Mexico!















By John W. Lillpop

In my earlier report, I warned that third world Mexico appeared to be the source of the swine flu that has cropped up in California and Texas.

Some readers responded with mindless rants about racism, how great Mexico is blah, blah, and blah. Most of these responses originated with illegal aliens or sympathizers, a fact made obvious considering the wretched English and spelling in the missives. Real Americans do not write so foolishly.

In any event, my prognosis turned out to be honest, if brutally accurate. In fact, since my earlier report, the situation in Mexico has gotten dramatically worse.

Schools have been shut down for millions of students, and the nation is on the brink of a monumental health disaster on top of its raging civil war with drug citadels.

Truly, there can be no doubt that Mexico is a "failed state!"

The deadly new swine flu problem in Mexico was reported, in part, by Reuters:

http://www.reuters.com/article/topNews/idUSTRE53N22820090424?sp=true

"A strain of flu never seen before has killed as many as 61 people in Mexico and has spread into the United States, where eight people have been infected but recovered, health officials said on Friday.

"Mexico's government said at least 16 people have died of the disease in central Mexico and that it may also have been responsible for 45 other deaths.

"Because there is clearly human-to-human spread of the new virus, raising fears of a major outbreak, Mexico's government canceled classes for millions of children in its sprawling capital city and surrounding areas.

"Our concern has grown as of yesterday," U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention acting director Dr. Richard Besser told reporters in a telephone briefing.

CLOSE TO 1,000 SUSPECTED CASES IN MEXICO

"Eight people were infected with the new strain in California and Texas, but all of them have recovered. Mexico said it had close to 1,000 suspected cases there.

"The U.S. government said it was closely following the new cases. "The White House is taking the situation seriously and monitoring for any new developments. The president has been fully briefed," an administration official said.

"Mexico's government cautioned people not to shake hands or kiss when greeting or to share food, glasses or cutlery for fear of infection."

Bottom line: President Obama needs to take immediate action to prevent even more problems from Mexico contaminating our pristine America.

The following steps are essential:

* Secure the US-Mexico borders with military force authorized to use whatever force is needed to keep invaders out of America, and

* Begin immediate roundup and deportation of the tens of millions of illegal aliens from Mexico in America.

The president and his leftist colleagues in Congress must act decisively to save America from the corruption and disease flowing into this nation from Mexico!

Swine Flu: Mexico's Latest Export to America?









By John W. Lillpop

Mexico continues to dump it's illiterate peasants on the US side of the border because this failed third world state cannot, or will not, provide food, shelter, education, and health care for its own citizens.

Rather than enacting needed reform to clean up the corruption and incompetence in this socialist-infested cesspool, elitists like Vicente Fox and Felipe Calderon take the easy path, which means illegally shipping their problems north for American taxpayers to deal with.

It is bad enough that We the People, a nation of educated, sophisticated and prosperous people, have to share borders with a third world failure; it is nothing sort of a scandal that President Bush, and now President Obama, care, more about illegal aliens than they do about American citizens.

A Congress led by the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid further weakens the prospects for American citizens to be represented in Washington D.C.

In the environment of political malfeasance that has overwhelmed Washington in recent years, Mexican exports to America have included Salmonella, drugs, and Tuberculosis.

Now it appears as though swine flu has been added to the list of undesirables entering our pristine nation from south of the border.

As reported, in part, at alertnet.org

http://www.alertnet.org/thenews/newsdesk/N23355101.htm

"Seven people have been diagnosed with a new kind of swine flu in California and Texas, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported on Thursday.

"All seven people have recovered but the virus itself is a never-before-seen mixture of viruses typical among pigs, birds and humans, the CDC said.

"We are likely to find more cases," the CDC's Dr. Anne Schuchat told a telephone briefing. "We don't think this is time for major concern around the country."

"Only one of the seven cases was sick enough to be hospitalized and all have recovered, Schuchat said.

"CDC officials are unsure whether the cases are related to an unusually late and severe flu season in Mexico in which 20 people have died.

"Generally the period of infection ends during the last week of February and the first week of March, but this year there was an atypical situation where the transmission period was prolonged until April," Mexico's Ministry of Health said in a statement.

"Symptoms from those seriously ill in Mexico include high fever, headache, eye pain, shortness of breath and extreme fatigue with rapid progression of symptoms to severe respiratory distress in about five days," the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control said in a statement."

Is Swine flu the latest plague to invade America from Mexico?

If so, when will American politicians face reality and acknowledge that Mexico is a foreign enemy of the United States?

Sniper Fire Survivor Doubts Veracity of Dick Cheney



















Satire by John W. Lillpop


In a moment of insightful truth, conservative columnist William Safire once provoked a fire storm when he accused then co-president Hillary Clinton of being a “congenital liar."

Safire's column did not set well with Bill Clinton, whom threatened to punch Safire on the nose, were if not for the fact that he (Bill Clinton) was the elected half of the manacled duo.

Other Clintonistas rushed to Hillary's defense by objecting to the word "congenital," which means inherited or a medical condition existing at birth. Egged on by Hillary herself, defenders pointed out that Hillary's ongoing feud with truth did not commence until after she was introduced to, and paired with, Slick Willie.

Slick Willie called that a "damnable lie" and threatened to punch Hillary on the nose, were it not for the fact that it was Easter Sunday and he had an urgent appointment in the Oral Office with Monica Lewinsky right after church.

This rancid page from American history (best forgotten) springs up because Secretary Hillary Clinton appeared before Congress and, during the course of her testimony, cast dispersions of the veracity of former VP Dick Cheney.

As reported, in part, at wcbstv.com:

http://wcbstv.com/national/hillary.clinton.secretary.2.991639.html

"Hillary Clinton returned on Wednesday to her former place of business, Capitol Hill, and offered a sometimes testy review of her first three months as Secretary of State.

"The topics of discussion before the House Foreign Affairs committee ranged from the $900 million in aid pledged to Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza to Dick Cheney's claim that classified documents prove the Bush administration's interrogation methods on suspected terrorists yielded vital intelligence

"Well, it won't surprise you that I don't consider him a particularly reliable source of information," Clinton said of the former vice president."


Mind you, this from the mouth of the presidential candidate who, during the heat of the 2008 campaign, claimed that ducking sniper fire while invading Bosnia for hubby bubba made her battle tough and ready for that 3 am call on the Red Phone.

Unfortunately for the one time "inevitable queen," a CBS reporter, who had accompanied Hillary on her Bosnia trip in 1996, unearthed a clip of video that totally debunked her "dodging sniper fire" campaign rhetoric.

As reported at the blog.washingtonpost.com

http://blog.washingtonpost.com/fact-checker/2008/03/more_incoming_for_clinton.html


"As has now been conclusively established by video film and news photographs, Hillary Clinton did NOT come under sniper fire in Bosnia in March 1996 when she made a morale-boosting visit to U.S. troops enforcing the 1995 Dayton Peace Agreement. But she is taking plenty of bullets for her over-dramatic accounts of the trip, and acknowledged on Monday that she had made a "misstatement." She said it should be treated as a "minor blip."


From that same report, this, in part:

"U.S. Air Force journalist Don Jackson was standing on the back of a flatbed pick-up truck filming the event when Clinton's plane touched down. Here is his account:

Mrs. Clinton arrived to a flight line full of well-wishers, both military and civilian, accompanied by her staff as well as comedian Sinbad and singer Sheryl Crow who were there to entertain troops.

To set the record straight, there was no enemy fire, and no imminent danger. If there had been any danger, "well-wishers" would not have been allowed on the tarmac, much less allowing me to stand above everyone else on the back of a truck.

And Sinbad and Sheryl Crow would've been running for their lives instead of taking the time to be interviewed by yours truly, on the tarmac. Mrs. Clinton's [claim] is a lie, plain and simple."

Bottom line: When it comes to the raw truth, Hillary Clinton appears to be uniquely unqualified to critique anyone's "reliability as a source of information!"

Napolitano's Warped Vision for America: Up With Illegal Aliens, Down With Vets!














Janet Napolitano's Warped Vision for America: Up With Illegal Aliens, Down With Vets!

By John W. Lillpop

How in the world did this great nation deteriorate so rapidly and so profoundly?

What insanity inspired We the People to install a leftist regime that would, in less than 100 days, declare war on veterans, opponents of illegal immigration, abortion, higher taxes and spending, and other "right wing extremists," while deciding that those who enter the U.S. illegally are NOT committing a crime?

Why would any president with even minimal concern for the
security of American citizens appoint someone like Janet Napolitano to head the Department of Homeland Security Secretary (DHS)?

In a land of over 300 million, surely President Obama could have found a more qualified, talented professional to manage DHS, particularly during time of war and given the fact that our third-world neighbor Mexico is becoming more and more of a failed state, a situation that could spill over into America even more profoundly, bringing with it grave carnage and chaos.

Napolitano's forgettable tenure made headlines recently when a DHS report, titled "Right-wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment," dated April 7, states that "threats from white supremacist and violent anti-government groups during 2009 have been largely rhetorical and have not indicated plans to carry out violent acts."

http://wnd.com/images/dhs-rightwing-extremism.pdf

Her aggravated assault on the American way of life plowed full speed ahead when Napolitano denied that those who have invaded America are guilty of a crime.

As reported, in part, at the Heritage Foundation:

http://blog.heritage.org/2009/04/20/napolitano-illegal-immigration-not-a-crime/

"On Sunday, April 19, 2009, Secretary Napolitano went on CNN’s “State of the Union” and proclaimed that crossing the border illegally is not a crime. This statement left a lot of folks scratching their heads given that U.S. law—the law Napolitano is sworn to uphold—says quite the opposite. Section 8, Title 1325 of the U.S. code clearly states that those who enter the U.S. illegally are committing a crime.

"This ‘interpretation’ of the law by Secretary Napolitano seems to be the latest in an effort by the Obama Administration to scale back interior immigration enforcement efforts in the United States. As recently as March 28th, Napolitano made the decision to delay a series of immigration raids and other workplace actions aimed at finding illegal workers.

"At the same time, both President Obama and Secretary Napolitano have announced new initiatives intending to send the message that they take the issues at the southern border seriously. But the Administration cannot fight cartels while ignoring illegal immigration—people smuggling is part of the problem, not a separate issue. Legalization will only make matters worse.

"Granting the people here illegally asylum will only encourage more illegal border crossing. Likewise, failing to enforce workplace and immigration laws will only encourage more to ignore the law."

Despite her anti-American record so far, not everyone is distressed by Napolitano's ascension to the Right Hand of Power.

Many enlightened residents of Arizona, for example, are grateful for the fact that Napolitano is no longer able to muck up their state directly from the governor's mansion in Phoenix!

Which Will It Be? Your Righteous Indignation, or Los Angeles?










By John W. Lillpop

Jack Benny, late, great comedian from days gone by, was renowned for being a penny-pinching tightwad. In one of his more memorable gags, Benny was confronted by an armed robber who issued the challenge, "Your money or your life!"

In his inimitable style, Benny paused momentarily and replied, "Let me think about!"

As funny as that line is, it is no more nonsensical than the Obama administration's position on "harsh interrogation techniques."

Indeed, President Obama recently announced that he is "open" to prosecuting former Bush administration members who authorized CIA interrogators to use water boarding on terrorists, which would include an uncooperative Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM), who masterminded the 9/11 attacks.

Obama may wish to rethink his "kinder, gentler" approach based on a report which indicates that harsh interrogation techniques yielded information that enabled law enforcement officials to thwart a planned terrorist attack on Los Angeles.

As reported, in part, at cnsnews.com:

http://www.cnsnews.com/public/content/article.aspx?RsrcID=47003


'Soon, you will know.'

"That is the ominous statement an uncooperative Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM), mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, told his Central Intelligence Agency interrogators when they initially asked him, after he had been captured, about additional planned al-Qaida attacks on the United States.

"As CIA Acting General Counsel John A. Rizzo explained in a 2004 letter to then-Acting Assistant Attorney General Daniel. On Tuesday, the CIA confirmed that it stands by assertions credited to the agency in this 2005 memo that subjecting KSM to “enhanced techniques” of interrogation—including waterboarding—caused him to reveal information that allowed the U.S. government to stop a planned 9/11-style attack on Los Angeles.

"Before they were waterboarded, both KSM and Abu Zubaydah did not believe Americans had the will to stop al-Qaida, the 2005 Justice Department memo says, citing information from the CIA.

“Both KSM and Zubaydah had ‘expressed their belief that the general U.S. population was ‘weak,’ lacked resilience and would be unable to ‘do what was necessary’ to prevent the terrorists from succeeding in their goals,’” said the memo. “Indeed, before the CIA used enhanced techniques in its interrogation of KSM, KSM resisted giving any answers to questions about future attacks, simply noting, ‘Soon, you will know.’

"After he was waterboarded, KSM provided the CIA with information that allowed the U.S. government to close down a terror cell already “tasked” with flying a jet into a building in Los Angeles.

"According to the CIA, it produced cooperation in the mastermind of 9-11 and thus yielded information used to stop a 9-11 type attack on the West Coast.

"President Obama says he has prohibited the interrogation techniques described in the Justice Department memos he released. Next time the CIA catches a KSM, they must be kinder and gentler with him."

The saddest part of this story is that if the Obama administration had been in power when Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was being interrogated, Los Angeles might be the west coast version of Ground Zero.

How Obama Can Squeeze $100 Million from His Cabinet









Satire By John W. Lillpop

Barack Obama made headlines with his low-ball challenge that his cabinet cut $100 million in costs.

Isn't the president's scheme sooooooooooooooooo typically liberal?

You throw away trillions upon trillions on worthless liberal projects, then, with the help of the mainstream media, you promote yourself as a cost-cutting, frugal hero by mandating that your cabinet dig deep and cut $100 million.

It's rather like dipping an 8 ounce glass of water from the ocean and calling it significant!

More leftist double talk and transparently deceitful nonsense at a time when the nation urgently needs CHANGE from the tired, old policies of the Obama seizure.

As reported at CNN, in part:

http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/04/20/obama.cabinet.cuts/index.html?iref=mpstoryview

"President Obama on Monday gathered together every confirmed member of his Cabinet for the first time as president and challenged them to cut $100 million in the next 90 days.

"Agencies will have to report how they saved on expenses at the end of the period.

The federal government has "a confidence gap when it comes to the American people," Obama said at the White House.

"We've got to earn their trust. They've got to feel confident that their dollars are being spent wisely"

For a bloke who is said to have paid zero attention to the "Tea Parties" last week, Obama seems to have a pretty good idea of how his taxing and spending policies are playing out in mainstream America. Which is not well at all.

Unfortunately, the $100 million challenge is more of a charade than a legitimate attempt to CHANGE anything.

Were this president serious about this issue, he would challenge that band of thugs in his cabinet to go the extra mile by filing honest tax returns for the past five years!

Given the history of the Obama cabinet, that alone would pump $100 million back into the Treasury.

Shoot-out at Miss USA Pageant: Beauty Versus the Beast!






















By John W. Lillpop

Carrie Prejean is a drop-dead beautiful, intelligent, decent and honest 21-year-old woman who should have been crowned Miss USA at the Planet Hollywood hotel and casino in Las Vegas on Sunday.

Unfortunately, Ms. Prejean's honesty and traditional family values pitted the blond beauty against one Perez Hilton, an avid carrier of the gay agenda, who modesty refers to himself as ' queen of all media.'

For the purposes of this reportage, Queen Hilton is known as the "Beast."

Prejean's abuse at the hands of the Beast is reported, in part, at dailymail.co.uh:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/worldnews/article-1172123/You-dumb-bitch-Miss-USA-beauty-pageant-turns-ugly-Perez-Hilton-


"It was the night a beauty contestant turned ugly.
When Miss California was asked her opinion on same-sex marriages by an openly gay judge she could have chosen a diplomatic reply.

"Instead, 21-year-old Carrie Prejean answered with honesty.

"Prejean, a blonde student, was one of the favourites to win the Miss USA title at the pageant held on Sunday at the Planet Hollywood hotel and casino in Las Vegas and shown live on TV.

"Having negotiated earlier rounds of modelling in a swimsuit and evening gown, she was down to the final 15 and had to answer a single question from one of the panel of five judges.

"Prejean picked celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, who is openly gay and calls himself 'queen of all media'.

"Hilton asked her :'Vermont recently became the 4th state to legalize same-sex marriage. Do you think every state should follow suit. Why or why not?'

"Prejean paused for a moment before replying: 'Well, I think it’s great that Americans are able to choose one or the other. We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage.'

"She continued: 'And you know what, in my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman.

"'No offence to anybody out there, but that’s how I was raised and that’s how I think it should be - between a man and a woman. Thank you very much."

(Wonky misspellings are the fault of the British writer)

Note, please, that Prejean's reply was measured, logical, intelligent, and respectful.

No homophobic hate speech, nothing inflammatory or even objectionable, except for non-compliant opinion. Prejean even avoided the ultimate name-dropping ploy: Not once did she bring up the name of Jesus Christ.

She simply expressed her views honestly, said views being the majority view in California and throughout most of America as well.

Prejean's gracious answer was not returned in kind by the Beast.

Instead, he showed his emotional immaturity and intellectual shallowness by unleashing a mindless tirade in which he described Prejean as having 'half a brain' and being a "dumb bitch."

Disagreeing with the Beast and his gay agenda automatically renders one a half-brain, dumb bitch?

With all due respect, the Beast should be stuffed back into his gay closet, away from public view, for the benefit of both the majority straight public and the gay community.

How VP Biden Can Shine as "Higher Taxes Are Cool" Surrender Monkey!















Satire by John W. Lillpop


During the campaign that got America into the awful mess we now face, then VP candidate Joe Biden remarked that paying higher taxes was the patriotic thing to do.

Forget supporting our troops or standing behind the president in the war on terror.

Don't need no stinkin' American flag in one's lapel, or silly pledge of allegiance, to prove that your veins are filled with red, white, and blue blood

Those who really care will gladly pay higher, higher, and highest taxes, according to Joe Biden.

As luck would have it, the VP recently announced a terrific new opportunity to show one's patriotic fervor.

As reported, in part, at Pittsburgelive.com:

http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pittsburghtrib/news/s_621292.html


"Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. announced last month that Social Security beneficiaries will get one-time $250 stimulus bonus payments beginning in May.

"He didn't mention that he will be one of the recipients.

"The annual tax returns for Biden and his wife, Jill, released last week, show he began collecting Social Security benefits in 2008. He became eligible for full benefits in November when he reached age 66."


Given his obsession with enriching the U.S. Treasury with his own money (in the name of patriotism), when will Biden announce that he has returned his stimulus check, and that of his spouse, to the government?

In fact, to show just how patriotic he really is, why doesn't Biden refuse all of those monthly social security checks? Surely, he does not need the money.

Go ahead, Joe, make America's day by becoming the nation's "Higher Taxes Are Cool!" surrender monkey!

More Than Inexperienced and Naive: Obama Is Evil!

By John W. Lillpop

Until recently, Barack Obama seemed little more than a badly misinformed lestist, unqualified for the presidency because of inexperience and naive allegiance to progressive "solutions" long ago abandoned by those with the honesty and guts to face truth.

In fact, Obamamania seemed more about the dumbing down of America than about the man himself. How else to explain the mercurial rise of an unknown black man whose appeal was limited to being "clean and articulate"?

To be sure, Obama has always been a very dangerous threat to America's defense, economy, and values. But he was more "useful idiot" than anti-American heretic.

However, the full measure of the danger posed by the Obama presidency became known this week when the administration released memos concerning harsh interrogation methods employed by the Bush administration.

As reported, in part, at CNN.Com:

"A former head of the CIA slammed President Obama on Sunday for releasing four Bush-era memos, saying the new president has compromised national security

"Michael Hayden, who served as former President Bush's last CIA director from 2006 to 2009, said releasing the memos outlining terror interrogation methods emboldened terrorist groups such as al Qaeda.

"What we have described for our enemies in the midst of a war are the outer limits that any American would ever go to in terms of interrogating an al Qaeda terrorist. That's very valuable information," Hayden said during an appearance on "Fox News Sunday."


"By taking [certain] techniques off the table, we have made it more difficult -- in a whole host of circumstances I can imagine -- for CIA officers to defend the nation," he said."

The burning, unanswered questions in all of this are:

Why did Obama release these inflammatory, dangerous memos? What did he hope to accomplish with this unprecedented defiance of intelligence professionals, an act bordering on treason and sedition?

How could America's Commander-in-chief, responsible for the lives and well being of over 300 million Americans, risk even one of those lives with an unnecessary and foolish release of vital intelligence information?

The answer: Barack Obama is much more than inexperienced, naive, and inept: He is pure evil!

Milking the Earth Day Cash Cow
















Satire by John W. Lillpop

In order to commemorate Earth Day with the appropriate political correctness and chutzpah, the "Al Gore Institute for Saving Earth by Going Green, Inc. " has produced a list of ten acceptable ways to celebrate Earth Day.

Ten Ways to Celebrate Earth Day:

1. Take a friend to see An Inconvenient Truth

Self explanatory. This spiritual experience can be completed on any college campus and in all public education classes, K-12 and at liberal churches. Vacation Bible School showings now available at most Lutheran and Methodist retail centers.

2. Carbon Exchange Investments

Invest in a carbon exchange corporation that is committed to ending global warming while making obscene profits appear patriotic and "green."

To dabble in this emerging business sector, contact the "Tipper Gore Foundation of Climate Science and Investment Strategy." This low- tech misadventure has headquarters in Nashville, Tennessee on the Gore's 20,000 square foot "carbon neutral" mansion.

All business will be transacted only in euros--shares will not be released in exchange for dollars, credit cards, or checks.

The Foundation will hold its second annual meeting on April 23. Guest speaker Senator Barbara Boxer will deliver the keynote speech titled, "How Global Warming Can Impact Your Bar Mitzvah, Retirement, and Circumcision Decisions."

Light kosher refreshments will be sold.


3. Take two friends to see An Inconvenient Truth

Double your fun--and Al's profit!


4. Help Develop an Enemies of Earth Database

In order to pummel those who would wantonly abuse the earth, it is essential that greenies help Al develop an Enemies of Earth database for use on future global warming activism projects, and for Al's next run for president, which may commence in 2011 if Barack Obama continues to release hot air and carbon dioxide with his silly speeches all across the globe!

The objective of this adventure is to identify those who refuse to worship at the altar of global warming and who mock the Lord's work on this vital issue. It includes dunderheads who refuse to admit that Al actually won the presidency in 2000.

Most of the offenders are Caucasian Christian Republicans, usually angry males. Al needs to create a database of such people including home address, e-mail, phone number, church affiliation, social security numbers, and all substantiated (unsubstantiated OK if real juicy) dirt that can be used in a presidential campaign.

5. Take three friends to see An Inconvenient Truth

Three is NOT a crowd--when it comes to Al's terrific flick-fiction!


6. The "Pulitzer Prize AGAIN for Al" Committee
When Al Gore received a Pulitzer Prize for his objective and scientifically impartial work in 2007, the heavens literally opened and the light of truth was delivered to billions of people wallowing in the lies and deceit of those responsible for global warming.

But one Pulitzer Prize is not enough. As Jimmy Carter and Yassar Araft proved, just about any schmuck or murdering terrorist with enough money and a good line of BS can yank one Pulitzer.

To really stand out, one needs to win at least two and perhaps many more.

You can make a huge contribution to the future of Earth, its six billion human inhabits, and innumerable species in the animal and plant worlds by working to help steer the Pulitzer Prize in Al's direction...AGAIN!

For your "PP For Gore AGAIN" startup kit and motivational DVD, send $512.37 to the address listed on goretheglobalwarmingho.gov

Non-refundable, not tax deductible.


7. Take four friends to see An Inconvenient Truth


Four! is great in golf, and even better in the war on global warming!


8. Volunteer to Clean the Gore Mansion

Saving the planet is a full time job that leaves Al and Tipper Gore completely exhausted at the end of every day. In fact, the work is so demanding that this dynamic duo barely has time to stop and eat more than four or five pounds of beef a day! Each.

Although rescuing Mother Earth from right-wing extremists is demanding, the Gores must also maintain a 20,000 square foot luxury mansion with seven bedrooms, eight baths, indoor swimming pool, and guest suite for a live-in chef who specializes in mud pies stuffed with raw possum brains, and other southern delicacies.

Keeping the Gore mansion clean and dust free is a major task that you can help with. Bring your vacuuming, toilet bowl scrubbing, mopping, dusting, laundering, and other cleaning skills to Nashville and spend eight hours a day, four times a week, working your fingers to the bone while Al and Tipper fly around the world to save the planet.

This is a voluntary assignment--no reimbursement provided. Illegal aliens with no English proficiency preferred. Gardening skills a real plus.


9. Take five friends to see An Inconvenient Truth

Take the fifth for the future of your children, your grandchildren, and Al's retirement fund!

10. The ultimate Sacrifice for saving Earth

This step is admittedly not for everyone. It requires those who really care about Earth, children, old people, and pregnant women to make a profound sacrifice.

To those so blessed, the objective is to attack global warming head on by surrendering all motor vehicles to the "Al Gore Institute for Saving Earth by Ending Global Warming."

Vehicles are accepted at DNC branches in all major cities provided one has a lien-free title to the vehicle, or a funding date for retirement of any outstanding liens through refinancing.

Please leave the keys in your vehicle and arrange for return transportation for all in your party. The DNC cannot provide or arrange for transportation.

Well, there you have it, moon bats! The liberal way to celebrate Earth Day with PC gusto and insanity!

Progressive Folly: Bass-ackwards Thinking on Tax Policy

Satire by John W. Lillpop

As is the case with so many of the major issues of the day, left wing extremists are hell bent on pursuing policies that will be injurious, rather than helpful, to the American people.

An excellent example is in tax policy. According to liberal dogma, the poor and middle classes should be exempt from virtually all income taxes, whereas successful individuals and corporations should be punished for their success.

That thinking is bass-ackwards, and represents a serious threat to the continued viability of our democratic republic.

Think about it: Why should government use the tax code to beat the hell out of individuals and corporations who contribute the most to the GNP, who hire employees, and who create wealth?

Furthermore, why should that same government go out of its way to reward those who do not contribute to the economy? Why patronize those who consume goods and services paid for by others, but who add little or nothing to the GNP?

Barack Obama and other left wing extremists need to think outside the liberal box when it comes to restructuring the tax code.

These actions will lead to sustainable growth over the long term:

1. Significantly reduce or eliminate the tax obligation of individuals making over $250,000 a year. Money saved on taxes will be used by these people to hire more employees, improve productivity, and create wealth.

2. In tandem with the tax cuts cited, the tax obligation for those making less than $250,000 a year should be increased on a regressive scale: That is, the individual who makes $50,000 a year should pay less tax than the individual who earns $30,000. And so on.

Government should use the tax code to motivate individuals to be industrious, creative, and savvy when it comes to wealth creation.

Reducing taxes will accomplish that objective.

3. Increased Spending on liberal projects should require approval of two thirds of the Congress and the president.

By simply reversing their wrong-headed thinking,left wing extremists can be part of the solution, rather than the problem!

Janeane Garofalo Resorts to Racial Profiling, Gay Slur in Attacking Tea Parties



















By John W. Lillpop

Janeane Garofalo is a liberal actress and political activist who has expanded her career opportunities dramatically by recently adding part time psychiatrist and apprentice neurosurgeon to her resume.

Pity she did not study the American Revolution, the U.S. constitution, Free Speech, and other aspects of American history after leaving the fifth grade.

An advanced, non-liberal education might have helped Garofalo avoid making the following comment as reported, in part, by the Washington Times:

"Liberal actress and political activist Janeane Garofalo, in all seriousness, said activists who attended tea parties are racists with dysfunctional brains in a recent prime-time television appearance.

"Let's be very honest about what this is about. This is not about bashing Democrats. It's not about taxes. They have no idea what the Boston Tea party was about. They don't know their history at all. It's about hating a black man in the White House," she said. "This is racism straight up and is nothing but a bunch of teabagging rednecks. There is no way around that."

Admittedly, the Tea Party participants were mostly Caucasians.

However, Garofalo should know that it is a violation of sacred liberal orthodoxy to use race as a basis for assuming anything about anyone.

Thus, assuming that one million American citizens are racists and tea bagging red necks, simply because they happen to be white, is a bit of a stretch, even for a leftist goon.

Particularly when the goon happens to be white herself.

Any reasonable person (white or not) would study the facts and ask some probing questions before accusing millions of strangers of engaging in tea bagging, which is actually a homosexual practice not understood very well by straight Americans, a condition Barney Frank hopes to correct with tens of billions of "education" dollars in the next stimulus package.

Back to asking piercing questions before going off the deep end.

An intelligent person would ask why people of color were underrepresented at these First Amendment rallies? Is it because people of color do not pay taxes, or do they benefit disproportionately from tax payer funded programs?

Perhaps people of color are more gung ho than white folk and believe, as Joe Biden does, that paying higher taxes is the patriotic thing to do?

Alternatively, do people of color automatically buy everything Barack Obama says and does simply because he is black? Is this all about loving a man in the White House only because he is a brother?

Studying the Tax Party issue in detail could lead to other urgent inquiries:

Why are marches demanding citizen's rights for illegal aliens dominated by Hispanics? Why were the Watts riots in Los Angeles mostly about African-Americans?

Alternatively, one could even get scholarly and seek to establish an esoteric distinction by asking,

"Which is the greater moral outrage: Being a law-abiding, peaceful tax protester embracing the blessings of the First Amendment, OR being a tax cheat in the Obama cabinet whose job it is to prosecute other people for failing to pay their taxes?"

Or, "Is Timothy Geithner a racist red neck because he went beyond the act of protesting and did not pay his taxes? What about Charles Rangel?"

Garofalo is a self-described pessimist who is quoted in Wikipedia as saying: "I guess I just prefer to see the dark side of things. The glass is always half empty. And cracked. And I just cut my lip on it. And chipped a tooth."

When it comes to the issue of Tax Parties, this leftist goof ball found a way to navigate her foot around that chipped tooth in order to insert said foot squarely in the center of her foolish mouth!
