It’s like killing a baby.

Wow.  My opinion of Justin Bieber just climbed, like, exponentially, after hearing about the bruhaha over his Rolling Stone interview.  Apparently, Baba Wawa didn’t like his opinion:

The teen heartthrob is quoted in the magazine’s March issue as saying “you should just wait” until you’re in love to have sex and “I really don’t believe in abortion. It’s like killing a baby.”

Amazing…I’ve always thought abortion looked an awful lot like murder, myself.  If it is murder to let a child die after its birth, then it’s murder to kill it before its birth.  Logical, really.  Personally, I think 16-year-old Bieber’s attitude is healthy, and if he can influence youngsters to be more responsible with their sexual behavior, then society will certainly benefit.  …and liberal heads will explode.  It’s a win-win.

Where’s Woodward & Bernstein when you need them?

How high must the stench of corruption go before some enterprising journalist (what used to be called a “reporter,” whose job it was to look for “facts”) decides he can make his career by just doing his damn job? Remember the Blagojevich scandal regarding the Senate seat formerly held by Obama?  Remember the allegations (pooh-poohed by the Left) that Obama involved himself improperly by suggesting to Governor Blago that he appoint an Obama toady to the vacated seat?  Remember how we were told by the MSM that there was no evidence that Obama had anything to do with it?  Er, not quite.

Fed informant passed delicate message to Blagojevich from Obama

John Wyma, a lobbyist and Blago’s former chief of staff, passed to John Harris (Blago’s last chief of staff) the following message: “the President-elect would be thankful and appreciative if the governor would appoint Valerie Jarrett to the Senate seat.”

Problem was, Wyma was a Federal informant.  Oops.  Blago was later caught on a wire-tapped call saying: “We know he wants her, they’re not willing to give me anything, just appreciation, f— them.”

Does this meet the legal standard required to establish criminal conduct?  I don’t know.  I’m not a criminal lawyer.  (I have a real job as a productive member of society, being an oil-speculating, pollution-belching, obscene-profit-acquiring capitalist.)  But there’s at least a story here.  If anyone in the media was paying attention.   Which they’re not.

Of course, it’s not really news, because it comes from the fevered writings of some right-wing-nutjob conservative blogger.  Oh wait, it doesn’t.  It comes from the Chicago Sun-Times.  Noted conservative newspaper and all.

Why do we labor? Ask Mr. Galt.

On this Labor Day, Mr. Denninger asks the first, and suggests the second. Read this.  Think about it.  It’s that important.

Black Panther Justice

Sunday, June 27th, 2010

– Elphaba

Well, it turns out that there still are principled attorneys in Department of Justice; however, this particular one has resigned in protest over Obama’s refusal to prosecute the Black Panthers who committed voter intimidation during the last presidential election:

On the day President Obama was elected, armed men wearing the black berets and jackboots of the New Black Panther Party were stationed at the entrance to a polling place in Philadelphia. They brandished a weapon and intimidated voters and poll watchers. After the election, the Justice Department brought a voter-intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party and those armed thugs. I and other Justice attorneys diligently pursued the case and obtained an entry of default after the defendants ignored the charges. Before a final judgment could be entered in May 2009, our superiors ordered us to dismiss the case.

The New Black Panther case was the simplest and most obvious violation of federal law I saw in my Justice Department career. Because of the corrupt nature of the dismissal, statements falsely characterizing the case and, most of all, indefensible orders for the career attorneys not to comply with lawful subpoenas investigating the dismissal, this month I resigned my position as a Department of Justice (DOJ) attorney.

Kudos to J. Christian Adams.  You can read the rest of his Washington Times article HERE.

This administration is not even attempting to hide its bias and corruption.  They’ve gone completely off the rails.
