Our Weasel Of The Week Nominees!

weasel

It’s time once again for the Watcher’s Council’s ‘Weasel Of The Week’ nominations, where we pick our choices to compete for the award of the famed Golden Weasel to a public figure who particularly deserves to be slimed and mocked for his or her dastardly deeds during the week. Every Tuesday morning, tune in for the Weasel of the Week nominations!

Here are the nominees…

 Bengahzi Babe, Server Wiping Expert And Foundation Fundraising Ace Hillary Clinton!!

The Noisy Room : My nomination this week is Hillary Clinton for calling on Silicon Valley to stop ISIS. I kid you not. She’s going for ripping up the Constitution just the way Obama is:

“You are going to hear all the familiar complaints: ‘freedom of speech,’ ” Mrs. Clinton said in an hourlong speech and question-and-answer session at the Saban Forum, an annual gathering at the Brookings Institution that focuses mostly on Israel’s security issues.

In a reference to Silicon Valley’s reverence for disruptive technologies, Mrs. Clinton said, “We need to put the great disrupters at work at disrupting ISIS,” an acronym used for the militant group.

It was the second time in two weeks that Mrs. Clinton, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, had thrown herself into the brewing battle between Silicon Valley and the government over what steps should be taken to block the use of Facebook, YouTube, Snapchat and a range of encrypted apps that are adopted by terrorist groups.

Then the hag had the nerve to say that if Iran violated any of the agreement, that she would make sure America responded swiftly and mercilessly. First off, the agreement is not valid. Never was. Second, she alluded to using nuclear weapons against Iran. She pretended to be corrected over it as if it were a slip, but I suspect it wasn’t. “Declaring war on Islam, or demonizing the Muslim community, is not only counter to our values; it plays right into the hands of the terrorists,” Hillary said. Right, because it isn’t like the vast majority of killers slaughtering Americans out there are Muslim… oh, wait. Trust me when I say that if the Hildabeast ever got her way with technology, she would use it against Americans, not the enemy. For being a fascist, she should get the golden weasel this week.

Obama’s Own Racialist And Islamist Friendly Attorney General, Loretta Lynch!!

Bookworm Room : My nominee is Loretta Lynch who, in the wake of the San Bernardino terrorist attack, went full dhimmi by announcing that speech that merely edges towards violence will justify full federal prosecution:

“Now obviously this is a country that is based on free speech,” she said. “but when it edges towards violence, when we see the potential for someone lifting that mantle of anti-Muslim rhetoric or, as we saw after 9/11, violence against individuals… when we see that, we will take action.”…

“I think it’s important that as we again talk about the importance of free speech we make it clear that actions predicated on violent talk are not America. They are not who we are, they are not what we do, and they will be prosecuted,” she concluded.

That Lynch acknowledges that a First Amendment exists doesn’t change the fact that she’s created a standard that doesn’t exist under the First Amendment. If I remember my law correctly, the standard is that the speech has to be of such a nature that it is an imminent incitement to violence. That would be along the lines of “Hey, you! Take this gun and go shoot the man standing in the doorway.” That is not protected speech.

Saying, “We are witnessing a dangerous problem with the rise of radical Islam in America and we need to do something about it,” is the epitome of free speech. It does not directly incite or order violence, but it does raise serious political issues that a free people may loudly and publicly discuss.

Lynch, however, has just given herself permission to prosecute this language in case some Yahoo in Nowhereville gets it into his head to send a bomb to or crash a car into a mosque. Free speech can never be limited by the fact that a handful of auditors may be stupid, vicious or crazy. To hold otherwise is to go full sharia and, to the extent I don’t believe Lynch is a Muslim, for her to be the perfect dhimmi subject of a Muslim nation.

As Pamela Geller rightly said, if you want to tackle something that has explicit instructions for immediate violence, Lynch had better go after the Koran first.

Maggie’s Notebook : Charlene Storey, New Jersey Councilwoman!

I nominate Charlene Storey, New Jersey Councilwoman for the borough of Roselle Park, for Weasel of the Week because she’s a loser, literally, who tendered her resignation, before recinding her resignation over the issue of calling the town Christmas tree a “Christmas” tree. The council voted to change the name of the town ceremony from “A Tree Lighting” to “A Christmas Tree Lighting.” The vote was 4 to 2 in favor of the change. Ms. Storey doesn’t like losing. She resigned, and then, reportedly changed her mind. According to this source, she is a “Councilwoman at Large” and her term expires on January 7, 2016, so she made some noise before disappearing back into the crowd.

Ms. Storey’s story is not unusual. So many Weasels like her, but the Mayor of the town is unusual. Mayor Hoaknson, a Democrat, is quoted saying “I feel strongly that it is a Christmas tree, and it is a lighting. So therefore, it will be a ‘Christmas tree lighting. Just like the Easter Bunny is the Easter Bunny and not the Holiday Bunny.”

A man of uncommon sense and good will, he will honor Ms. Storey by saying “Happy Holiday” to her, and “Merry Christmas to everyone else.

In addition to being a Democrat, the Mayor is a retired Roselle Park Police lieutenant and a life-long resident of the borough. He said he has received many phone calls supporting the “Christmas” tree from the good people of Roselle Park. Growing up in the town, he said the tree was always a “Christmas tree,” until the lawsuit. And isn’t there always one?

February 1999: “For now, Jersey City has a court’s approval to continue its 35-year tradition of erecting a holiday display of a menorah and a creche outside City Hall as long as officials make sure to include Santa, Frosty the Snowman, and little red sleigh and an evergreen decorated with Kwanzaa ribbons.”

How many years did the townspeople of Judeo-Christian belief show up for the “Tree” lighting? Storey called the renaming “exclusionary,” although she may show up if she chooses to do so. Only she makes it “exclusionary.” The tree lighting is a lighting. She is not required to have a religious experience as the lights flash on, just as we are not required to lose our faith in a Higher Power or Jesus Christ because she is offended.

Prog-Faschist New York Daily News Columnist Linda Stasi !!

 Nice Deb : New York Daily News columnist, Linda Stasi, has been accurately described as a “foul, disgusting liberal.” One could also argue that she is a particularly repellent weasel.

The aptly named columnist “blamed of the victim” and engaged in gross moral relativism in her horrific Dec. 6 article asserting “that the interaction between ‘two hate-filled, bigoted municipal employees’ led to the deaths of ’13 innocent people’ who were killed in an act of “unspeakable carnage.”

The post’s title read: “San Bernardino Killers Were ISIS-Loving Monsters — But One of Their Victims Was Just as Bigoted.”

Stasi stated:

 

One man spent his free time writing frightening, NRA-loving, hate-filled screeds on Facebook about the other’s religion.

The other man quietly stewed and brewed his bigotry, collecting the kind of arsenal that the Facebook poster would have envied.

“What they didn’t realize,” she stated, “is that except for their different religions, they were in many ways similar men who even had the same job.”

What an absolutely repulsive weasel this Stasi creature is.

Well, there it is. What a despicable group of  Weasels…ANY OF THEM COULD WIN! Check back Thursday to see which Weasel walks off with the statuette of shame!

Make sure to tune in every Monday for the Watcher’s Forum.

And remember, every Wednesday, the Council has its weekly contest with the members nominating two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. The votes are cast by the Council, and the results are posted on Friday morning.

Forum : What Is Your Reaction To The Defeat Of ObamaTrade?

Every week on Monday morning , the Council and our invited guests weigh in at the Watcher’s Forum, short takes on a major issue of the day, the culture, or daily living. This week’s question: What Is Your Reaction To The Defeat Of ObamaTrade?

The Razor: Although I am a strong advocate for free trade, my reaction to the defeat of ObamaTrade involves a Snoopy Dance and a high-five to union leaders, if there were any about.

If free trade is an unalloyed good, why the secrecy?

The behavior of supporters especially the GOP reminded me why I was an independent voter for so long. The GOP really can act like tin-eared d***heads just as the Left portrays them to be.

I continue to support free trade but only when it’s negotiated openly and clearly in the best interest of the US. At this point neither one of those aspects is likely true for the TPP.

Laura Rambeau Lee, Right Reason: I am glad it was defeated. Call me skeptical, but a bill to allocate funding to help displaced American workers as a result of a trade agreement just might mean the trade bill is not a good deal for the American people. This is proof that our elected servants, on both sides of the aisle, are not to be trusted with our national and domestic security or in keeping our nation sovereign. They are not looking out for We the People or in protecting our interests. Wealth redistribution is the end game here, and I hope more Americans become aware of the traitors within our government.

Is it time for a third party yet?

GrEaT sAtAn”S gIrLfRiEnD : Several things fly to mind. 1St off, 44 is a lame duck. Look for 44 and his bi partisan Posse of Enabling enablers will simply try a new Pac Rim maneuver. This highlights an economic schism betwixt Democrat party cats of corporate America and the Occupy wing leading to another issue.

The 2016 race. For Democrats, at least any contenders to the nomination can widen the distance between themselves and administration policy, go all out with populist and/or a re distributionist socialist agenda.

 JoshuaPundit : I pretty much said what I had to say here, but I’ll add the following.

First, this is no new ‘consensus’ between conservatives and the Left. Nancy Pelosi, one of the more corrupt, hyper-partisan and venal members of congress did what she did for one simple reason – the Democrat base is heavily dependent on  unions. And while Barack Hussein Obama will be gone in a year and seven months, the unions won’t be. Nervertheless, she still deserves thanks for this one useful act in a forty year-plus congressional career of feeding off the public trough.

What she is telling us is something anyone paying attention already knows. President Obama is not only a feral incompetent but a deceitful, self-serving liar of the first order. And there is no honor among thieves.

Unfortunately, that description also fits the Republican congressional leadership. They have systematically betrayed the party’s base that put them in office with a cynical glee on ObamaCare, the EPAs agenda, this president’s radical appointments to judgeships and administration posts, the obscene debt the administration has run up and Obama’s amnesty for illegal aliens by executive order. All of that could have been stopped, and Boehner,  McConnell and their cronies are directly responsible for the fact that they weren’t.

They are as unworthy of trust as this president, and unless they make concrete and major amends very quickly, I say we take the time to form a new party and be done with them.

The Independent Sentinel : My reaction is that I won’t have much of a reaction until I’m sure it’s dead, at least for this session. I am sorry because I would like to see trade opened up but I’m also relieved for the obvious reasons – Mr. Obama is not trustworthy and there are questions about TPP that won’t be answered until it’s probably too late.

Larry Kudlow is a good example of a strong proponent of TPP and all its accompanying bills.

He characterized all dissenters as unions, xenophobes, protectionists and trouble makers on his radio show Saturday. He questioned whether any dissenters could possibly be Conservative. He was brutal and I question whether that’s the way to win over converts. He made many good points, however, but in the end, as it turns out, he didn’t even read the TPA – the fast track authority bill. He shouldn’t be talking about it with such venom if he didn’t read it though I doubt it would change his mind. Looking over the TPA which is posted online, it appears to be routine but there’s room in it to twist it to fit an agenda.

What is certainly not routine is this administration.

It’s not the process that’s the problem, it’s to whom we are giving this authority. We know his agenda and we know he’s lawless. There is little doubt he disregards the will of the people in favor of a minority of far-left voters.

There is nothing normal about this administration and giving this president so much power is not about revenge as Kudlow said Saturday, it’s about trust, plain and simple.

Allegedly, 600 corporations helped write TPP and the US attorney in charge is almost as far left as one can get.

Why not slow it down by rejecting TPA and TAA? Why not wait until February 2017? What’s the rush?

Are we going to keep allowing our representatives – at least they are supposed to be representing us – are we going to keep allowing them to rush through these thousand-plus-page bills without anyone reading and debating them? Are we going to let them continuously tell us they won’t let us read them until the end is nigh or after the fact?

What kind of Republic is this? Oh, wait, our administration thinks we are a democracy. Therein lies the problem for me.

The Glittering Eye :It may not make much difference. I’d say it was about 50/50 that another bill to grant the president “fast track” authorization will be enacted next week or the week after. We’ll see.

I think the politics of the situation are interesting. I can’t recall another instance in which the Congressional leadership of the president’s own party organized opposition to a bill the president supported. I can remember many instances when members of the president’s own party disagreed with the president but the Congressional leaders organizing opposition is a different kettle of fish.

Ask Marion : I think that every once in a while God gives America and freedom another chance to wake-up and turn things around and throws a wrench into the plans of the global governance groups. The defeat of ObamaTrade, just as the Bilderberg elites are meeting along with the simultaneous morphing of Paul Ryan into Nancy Pelosi in front of all ours eyes, shedding much needed light on the GOP ‘Establishment’ leadership in Congress that makes it too obvious to even the weakest Republicans and Independents not to notice that there is a problem, is just one of those times.

Ironically Progressives, including Nancy Pelosi, for the first time honestly came together with Conservatives and thwarted Barack Obama’s New World Order agenda. Jeff Sessions was on point but the ‘Republican Establishment leadership’… John Boehner, Paul Ryan, Kevin McCarthy and Mitch McConnell’s betrayal still almost cost Americans jobs and freedom. Time for a new Speaker!!

There is rumor that Boehner may call for another vote in the House on ObamaTrade on Tuesday. He might think twice or there may finally be a serious call for a vote for a new Speaker instead!

Obama will no doubt just sign some version of an ObamaTrade executive order or action and justify it as Congressional weakness and inaction… but at least that will not be permanent or binding!!

Well, there you have it!

The Council Has Spoken!! This Weeks’ Watcher’s Council Results

https://i0.wp.com/primitivehebrews.org/_Media/pasted-file_med-2_med.jpeg

The Council has spoken, the votes have been cast, and the results are in for this week’s Watcher’s Council match up.

“Agitators are a set of interfering, meddling people, who come down to some perfectly contented class of the community, and sow the seeds of discontent amongst them. “ – Oscar Wilde

“Rioting and looting are the tools of those without a voice… There is no revolution without violence.” – – Agitator at the Ferguson riots, as quoted by Reuters.

“You are hard at work madam ,” said the man near her.
Yes,” Answered Madam Defarge ; ” I have a good deal to do.”
What do you make, Madam ?”
Many things.”
For instance —”
For instance,” returned Madam Defarge , composedly ,
Shrouds.”
The man moved a little further away, as soon as he could, feeling it mightily close and oppressive .”
– Charles Dickens in his novel about the French Revolution, A Tale Of Two Cities.

“We’re liberators, not looters” – Al Sharpton

This week’s winning essay,The Noisy Room’s The Movers and Shakers Behind the Ferguson Riots explores the Ferguson protests and riots and is pretty much about what the title implies it is, a well written in depth examination about a subject not much covered in the media…the plethora of very well organized groups who organized it and orchestrated it. Here’s a slice:

The Ferguson riots are not what they seem and those behind them are professionals. One of the top organizers of the protesters for the Ferguson riots is Lisa Fithian, someone who was intimately involved in the Occupy Wall Street movement. She has been deemed “Professor Occupy.” In 2005 and 2008, Lisa Fithian, Root Activist Network of Trainers, (2005), Alliance for Community Trainers Inc. (2008), was voted onto the Steering Committee for United for Peace and Justice. United for Peace and Justice is a partner organization of the George Soros linked Institute for Policy Studies. Several Marxist organizations are involved in the UFPJ leadership, but the most influential has been the Communist Party USA.

Lisa Fithian joined the labor movement through the AFL-CIO Organizing Institute in 1993. She is considered a legendary organizer. She also served as a human shield in actions conducted by the International Solidarity Movement in the Palestinian cities of Jenin and Nablus and has accused Israel of “slaughter[ing] Palestinians every single day in Gaza and the Occupied territories.” These are just a few of her credits.

Fithian is known for her statement: “create crisis, because crisis is that edge where change is possible.” Sound familiar? It should, it is straight out of Holder’s and Obama’s playbook, as well as Marxism in general. Fithian was a lead organizer in the infamous 1999 Seattle riots against the World Trade Organization that devolved into violence. She is known for teaching violent tactics as well as community organizing. She specializes in aggressive “direct action” tactics. Fithian previously provided training and support for the controversial ACORN group, National People’s Action, the new version of the Students for a Democratic Society and other radical organizations. She trained somewhere around 600 protesters for Ferguson.

The following video shows anti-capitalist radical Lisa Fithian training Chicago union teachers on how to stage their arrests for the camera in 2011:

Fithian is far from alone in her Revolution organizing. She is joined by the likes of Code Pink, RevCom, the New Black Panthers, Socialist Party USA, etc. The ACLU has been in the mix from the beginning as well, along with SEIU. The UN also became involved, along with national LGBT organizations, climate environmentalists, amnesty groups, pro-Palestinian organizations, Christian social justice groups and Planned Parenthood.

LGBT organizations represented include the Human Rights Campaign, Lambda Legal, National Black Justice Coalition, National Center for Lesbian Rights, National Center for Transgender Equality, National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Action Fund, National Queer Asian Pacific Islander Alliance, National Center for Lesbian Rights Action Fund and PFLAG National.

Amnesty International sent a “13-person human rights delegation” to the town to “examine” potential human rights abuses, in what they refer to as an “unprecedented” move by deploying in the United States. Many other groups joined in, such as Tauheed Youth Development Life, the Organization for Black Struggle (OBS), the Moorish Science Temple, the Coalition Against Police Crimes and Repression and the Universal African Peoples Organization (UAPO). No radical party would ever be complete without the Socialist Workers Party as well.

In our non-Council category, the winner was Andrew McCarthy at the NROwith What’s Really Going on with Holder’s Civil-Rights Crusade against Police Departments submitted by Nice Deb . McCarthy has an excellent take here on what’s behind the sudden seemingly endless assault on the nation’s police department’s by our Attorney General and the DOJ.

Wednesday’s Hero: Cpl Jason A. Karella

Cpl. Jason A. Karella

Cpl. Jason A. Karella
20 years old from Anchorage, Alaska
2nd Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division, I Marine Expeditionary Force
October 9, 2008


Cpl. Jason A. Karella died supporting combat operations in the Farah province of Afghanistan when the Humvee he was riding in rolled over. He had given up his, as his Father described “best seat in the armored Humvee” to the turret gunner who wasn’t feeling well that day.

“My son was proud of what he stood for,” said his father, Kevin. “He had a fiancee named Beth and he said to me, ‘Dad, I don’t have to worry about Beth getting blown up in a market over there because we’re keeping them busy here.'”

Karella grew up in a strong military family, with his father a former chief warrant officer in the Army, and his brother Josh also having served in Iraq.

Marines recognized Karella for his incredible strength, which he used to carry large amounts of ammunition with him in the battlefield. They referred to him as “the walking ammo supply point” and “the walking arsenal.” Well-respected among his peers, he was awaiting a promotion to Sergeant at the time of his death.

This page has a nice background piece on Cpl. Karell.

Wednesday’s Hero: SSgt. Salvatore Giunta

Via Right Wing and Right Minded:

SSgt. Salvatore Giunta
25 years old from Ceder Rapid, Iowa
173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team

Yesterday, SSgt. Salvatore Giunta became the first living recipient of the Medal Of Honor since the Vietnam War.

From the official citation:

Then-Specialist Salvatore A. Giunta distinguished himself by acts of gallantry at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty while serving as a rifle team leader with Company B, 2d Battalion (Airborne), 503d Infantry Regiment during combat operations against an armed enemy in the Korengal Valley, Afghanistan on October 25, 2007. When an insurgent force ambush split Specialist Giunta’s squad into two groups, he exposed himself to enemy fire to pull a comrade back to cover. Later, while engaging the enemy and attempting to link up with the rest of his squad, Specialist Giunta noticed two insurgents carrying away a fellow soldier. He immediately engaged the enemy, killing one and wounding the other, and provided medical aid to his wounded comrade while the rest of his squad caught up and provided security. His courage and leadership while under extreme enemy fire were integral to his platoon’s ability to defeat an enemy ambush and recover a fellow American paratrooper from enemy hands.”

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.
