Palooka Of The Month: July’s Winner, John McCain

Political Cartoons by Glenn Foden

This one is a couple of days late this month, and just in the nick of time, John McCain does not disappoint. Once again, we have a liberal caucus on the ropes, stuck in a political quagmire of their own making, and once again, like the foulest gremlin for all things right of center, John McCain swoons to the ground in order to snatch defeat from certain victory. The result of course is that the multi-year delay of confirming the single worst choice to head up the newly formed and euphemistically named Consumer Protection Bureau, Richard Cordray, has been ended, and John McCain has once again delayed a fight that needed to take place. The compromise received for allowing this continuation along the path towards self destruction is as usual, not a gosh darned thing.

Nobody should be surprised that John McCain has finally won an award that will probably bear his name on the yearly version, as he kisses the canvas so many times and with such precision that my guess is that very few would recognize the man were he standing in a vertical position. When ever the GOP is close to any sort of tactical victory in the Senate, along comes McCain to form some sort of, “Gang of,” group that will amount to an unmitigated surrender of each and every principle that the GOP has been founded upon.

Just in case you were wondering whether this latest bit of politicking amounts to such a surrender, read the quote from the leader of the Liberal Cabal, taken from the Hotair article linked to above.

“I’m pleased that the Senate took action today to move forward on the nominees who have waited far too long for a vote,” Obama said. “Over the last two years, I’ve nominated leaders to fill important positions required to do the work of the American people, only to have those positions remain unfilled – not because the nominees were somehow unqualified, but for purely political reasons.” …

“I want to thank the Senators from both parties – including Leader Reid, Leader McConnell and Senator McCain – who have worked together to find a path forward and give these nominees the votes they deserve,” Obama continued. “In the weeks ahead, I hope the Congress will build on this spirit of cooperation to advance other urgent middle-class priorities, including the need to take action to pass commonsense immigration reform and keep interest rates on student loans low for families trying to afford a higher education.”

If you think the EPA is dangerous to the American economy, with its hyper regulatory stance, the lack of accountability, the lack of transparency, its ability to rewrite its own rules to suit the whims of those in charge, the ability to place itself above the laws and Constitution, then wait till you get a load of the Consumer Protection Bureau. That will make you believe the good folk of the EPA are the warm and fuzzy creatures found in a Jim Henson production. Make no mistake about it, Cordray, a man who Ohio voters needed only four years as Attorney General to realize that they wanted nothing more to do with, is so far left of center that he actually believes that our nation needs an emperor to micro manage even the most mundane of daily decisions, will use his new position to make any sort of economic success punishable by death via a thousand paper cuts.

Yes it is true that if the Reid led Senate had voted to change its own rules, Cordray would likely have been nominated anyhow. But that’s only part of the story. The Democrats are very visibly concerned with their electoral prospects next year, and any such rules changes would increase the power of all future majorities as well as the current one. Those concerns are well founded, as once again they find themselves defending seats in States where the electorate is visibly upset with the blatant disregard for the will of the people who sent them to Washington. Had John McCain allowed this fight to take place, it is not a certainty at all that Reid’s attempt at a power grab would have been successful. If it had been successful, the Senate would still have had a House controlled by the opposition party to contend with, and this increased power for the majority would have been secured for future Sessions as well, meaning, the likely Republican Controlled Senate of 2015 and 2016 at least.

Such a maneuver would also have cost Reid politically, as his speeches shrieking about similar Republican initiatives while he was in the Minority were as obnoxious as they were plentiful. While it is true that much of America lacks an adult memory, it is also true that the sociopaths who inhabit our Legislative Branch by and large do not. They also possess the ability to perform some fairly complicated political calculus. The Democrats had far more to lose in this fight than gain. That was true up until the moment that John McCain decided to hand them this victory free from any political cost at all. The man kisses the canvas better than anyone in our nation’s history, and should be given the nickname, “Chief Falling Bull,” for his prowess.

    It probably depends on your race and nationality. Black Muslims can forge an indefinite number of passports for their terrorist friends in Somolia, but if a white American does it once, then it is probably a felony crime.

    Oh, there certainly are white Muslims. Islam, as I so often say to those who consider my anti-Islamixc stance RAAAAACISM, is not a race. Indeed, Islam perports to transcend race, but it is my understanding and observation that Islam is an Arabic Supremacy movement, similar to the way Nazism was a white Supremacy movement. BUt all Muslims are superior to Infidels.

    I was saying on ZIP that on his show last night, Mark Levin has offered to debate Juan McRino on this garbage piece of legislation. Since we know Juan hasn’t met a Sunday morning show he doesn’t like, and since we also know Mark has a pretty good working relationship with the gang at Fox, I say let’s book Juan and Mark on the Sunday Morning panel show and not tell McRino about Levin until the latter sits down. Then we can all have fun during our pancakes watching McRino’s face turn all sorts of decorator colors as Levin hands him his ass.

    Let me guess. He wants to go after Stand Your Ground. The Left hate self-defense because self-defense is the most basic natural right there is. The Democrats don’t believe in rights (except for abortion). They believe everything should be a privilege granted by the government. If Obama wants to go after self-defense, let him. I just hope that the Republicans have the balls to brand him as te Criminals’ Friend that he is.

    Durbin wants to go after Stand your Ground and wants to investigate the NRA for its complicity in them. Yeah, because taking on the NRA worked out SO WELL for you guys before.

    Oh, and Rand Paul has endorsed the RINO running against Liz Cheney in Wyoming, offering to do everything he can to help defeat her. Uh, Rand -- the TEA Party giveth and the TEA Party taketh away -- stay out of Wyoming.

    I have never called a president an asshole in my life. But this irresponsible POS has earned it and deserves it. I may be more incensed here because I am older and have had more experience with presidents. We are in a new era with this current occupant of the White House (didn’t MacArthur use that phrase first?). The MSM will not only let him off the hook, but will praise him for his candor and courage.

    He is calling the reaction to the verdict “understandable”
    Why not just say “Open season on Honkys & Latinos”


  28. 29 | July 19, 2013 2:07 pm

    Breitbart covers his racist diatribe:

    Obama said he was “bouncing around” ideas with his staff on how to respond to the Zimmerman verdict, adding, “I think it is going to be important for us to do some soul searching.” Pushing against Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law, Obama stated, “If Trayvon Martin was of his age and armed, could he have stood his ground on that sidewalk?”

    What Obama is ignoring is that when the juryfound Zimmerman innocent, they de facto passed a guilty judgement on Martin. Zimmerman was actin gin self-defense. He did not attack Martin, he was attacked by Martin. No, Obama, blacks do not have to right to beat up white people. I know that is the way you want society to be, but you can’t quite pass the new Jim Crow on whites. Not yet, and despite Chrissy Matthews rants to the contrary, probably not ever.

    Trayvon was a gang banger with training wheels on.
    He had plent of time to get to the condo when
    Zimmerman returned to his car.
    Instead he doubled back to administer a beat down
    to the cracka.

    It takes a veto proof majority in both houses to quash an Executive Order. If Obama issues an EO outlawing Stand Your Ground, it will be interesting what the Supreme Court has to say abou tit. Self-defense, to the degree that is can lawfully be regulated, is a State thing. Just as Obama has been smacked down on his illegal NLRB appointments, I think Obama will find that the Courts don’t find that he has a right o to give an Executive Order on this matter.

    And that is the most relevant part of the case. Zimmerman was walking back to his car when he was attacked. Even that Rachel Jeantel says she thinks Martin threw the first punch. Interesting that that question never came up directly in Court. The prosecution must have asked her that in her deposition, and not liked the answer that she gave.

    The stand your ground law is not operative in my statement. I was speculating on impeachment. This is a first for me. What he was saying was the most divisive, unamerican statements I have ever heard ,including Carters moronic ramblings, from a sitting president.


  39. 40 | July 19, 2013 2:21 pm

    @ BatGuano:

    Obama clearly thinks Martin had a right to beat up Zimmerman. I guess 100 years ago you would have had the same kind of reaction if Martin had been white and Zimmerman were black. Today, under the law, such distinctions have no meaning. Obama knows this. The Jury would have found the same way with the same evidence if the races had been reversed. We all know that, but the blacks want to pretend otherwise, because they think that they can milk special privileges out of it.


  40. 41 | July 19, 2013 2:21 pm

    That case was self defense as well.

    Rise in Illegal Immigration Overwhelms Local Police

    Not that we necessarily believe the administration’s seemingly distorted claims that the border is “as secure as it has ever been.” In fact, a new federal audit reveals that we really have no way of knowing this because the government’s statistics are incomplete. Why? Because the method used to measure border security efforts doesn’t compare the number of illegal aliens estimated to have entered the U.S. to those apprehended.

    Biden would be just as bad, if not worse. It is hard to do worse than Obama. He has set the country back in so many ways. Our foreign policy is a shambles, our economy is broken, and government spending is so out of control that it makes Bush look like a fiscal Conservative. Obama wants the nation divided and broken. That, not a fellow feeling with Martin, is what is driving Obama speech today. Race relations are the worst I’ve seen them in my lifetime.

    I asked if they had heard some talk -- and they said yes, they had, but it was all among the gay community and WAY too many people had pegged him for them to have much doubt. Also, “Eagle, you think we can’t TELL fer chrissakes?”

    ‘Trayvon Martin could have been me, 35 years ago,’ Obama says

    President Obama spoke publicly for the first time Friday on the acquittal of neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in the killing of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin, calling for an examination of ‘Stand Your Ground” laws nationwide.

    “Trayvon Martin could have been me, 35 years ago,” Obama said, adding that “it’s important to recognize that the African American community is looking at this issue through a set of experiences and a history that doesn’t go away.”

    Yeah, I know he even says in his autobiography that he struggles with the part of him that white. He clearly had no respect for the grandmother who raised him because she was white. He i skind of like a half-Jewish Nazi. He hates whites, and he hates the part of him that’s white. I think Obama would rather be a street hood than President of the United States, but he never had the courage of his convictions to become one. So when he says Martin could’ve been him, he means that when he was 17 he’d have liked to go around beating up whites.

    I never understood the whole first Black President bs. He’s the first visible Mixed Race President. I am sure there have been other Presidents who had some Non White in their bloodlines, but Obama is the first visible Mixed Race President, not First Black President.

    Obama is a sick hoax on America.

    Yes he did!

    CHICAGO — The job offer to “Miss Hillary Rodham, Wellesley College” was dated Oct. 25, 1968, and signed by Saul D. Alinsky, the charismatic community organizer who believed that the urban poor could become their own best advocates in a world that largely ignored them.

    Alinsky thought highly of 21-year-old Rodham, a student government president who grew up in the Chicago suburbs. She was in the midst of a year-long analysis of Alinsky’s aggressive mobilizing tactics, and he was searching for “competent political literates” to move to Chicago to build grass-roots organizations.

    Romney didn’t fight. He left all of his best arrows in the quiver. His consultants told him that all he needed to do to win was not be Obama. That clearly was wrong. He needed to be on the attack from the moment that he won the nomination. If he would have gone after Obama as hard as he fought Gingrich and Perry, chances are good he could have swung some swing states.

    Obama on the other hand grew up on the mean

    YOu could be right. I think we are headed for economic collapse no matter what. Even if a Republican gets elected in 2016, we’ll be over $20 trillion in debt. That is just too tough a nut to crack. Any Republican elected won’t be able to cut enough to stave off the collapse. They may be able to cut the rate at which we are hemorrhaging money, but the bleeding will still be there. We’ll just be dyin gmore slowly. Remember, Paul Ryan’s “radical” budget was going to take ten years to balance the budget. When 2016 rolls around, we won’t have the ten years.

    I think we’ll see a collapse more similar to the Fall of the Soviet Union rather than the Fall of the Roman Empire. Parts of the United States will hold together, and parts of it will slough away. The Leftist parts will follow Detroit into the ash heap of Third World status. I am not sure, though, what will happen to the Blue Cities in Flyover Country. City-States that follow the rest of the Left into Detroit like conditions? Or will there be mass emmigration as the Leftists flee “Jesusland” to be with their compatriots? The latter is what I’d like to see, but Leftists spread like cancer. They’d rather go into a Red State fleeing Detroitistan, and bring their system of government with them. I don’t know what we’ll see. The collapse of Detroit may give us som eguidance for what will happen. Will there be a Federal bailout of Detroit? There certainly shouldn’t be. They’ve voted straight Democrat for over 50 years. Collapsed and broke are what that gets you. They will never change their behavior if we bail them out.

    You aren’t likely to get that. The majority of Americans want a government that takes care of them. They won’t put it that way, but that is how they vote. People are deliberately ignorant of the way government functions or is supposed to function. The Public Schools deliberately do not teach this kind of thing, because it goes against the interests of the Teacher’s Unions. People think the central government is capable of taking all the risk out of their lives, and that just isn’t so. It is, however, capable of takin gall of the Freedom, and that is what the Left has been working on ever since the end of World War Two. There are those of us who know this and resist, but we are in the minority.

  117. 118 | July 19, 2013 3:53 pm

    @ Rodan:

    More or less that is true. That is because the majority of Americans want a nanny government. Look at what happened to Perry when he rightly called Social Security a Ponzi Scheme. In point of fact, Social Security is a Ponzi Scheme, one that is reaching its limits. But that reference to Holy Social Security doomed his chances at the Presidency. Paul Ryan’s budget was called “radical” and “draconian”, and it didn’t balance the budget for ten years. I don’t believe that it ever cut Federal Spending back to the late 1990s level. It relied on projected economic growth and holding the line on spending to get there. The majority of American sdon’t want cuts in government services, and that is what really needs to happen. A government that can do everythiing for you has enough power to take everything away from you, but that isn’t what they teach high school kids in Civics these days (if they even teach Civics anymore. It was looked down on when I was in high school).


  118. 119 | July 19, 2013 3:55 pm

    @ Iron Fist:

    Yup, That is why Republicans never govern as Economic Conservatives. They are Socialists hence their emphasis on Social issues. Much of the Republican base also want a welfare state, just a Socially Conservative welfare state.

    Politics is a battle of 2 factions that want the benefits of Socialism for their own ends. This will not end well.

    Good guess:

    A circuit court judge in Ingham County ruled that the City of Detroit’s Chapter 9 bankruptcy filed on Thursday violates the Michigan constitution, according to court orders she issued in three separate cases involving city pensioners.

    Ingham County Circuit Court Judge Rosemarie E. Aquilina issued the orders Thursday and Friday, including a temporary restraining order, in an attempt to halt the Chapter 9 filing by Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr. The judge says the bankruptcy filing “…will cause irreparable injury” to the pensioners.

    To the best of my knowledge, a state district court judge has nothing to say about bankruptcy cases, which are handled in federal court.
