I hope he is smiling down on those of us fighting the good fight as he would:[youtube=http://youtu.be/6RE3-RUR2-U]
I can recall the moment I heard about his passing a year ago as freshly as if it happened today. It still brings tears to my eyes. The tears don’t last long – they can’t. There’s a #war going on. We have to keep moving and all I have to do is think of John Nolte, Jim Treacher, Dana Loesch or the legion of bloggers I met at BlogCon just after Andrew died and the fight returns in me.
As a fellow warrior has told me so many times, I FIGHT, so should you. If you are unfamiliar with Zilla of the Resistance, I would suggest you get acquainted. She’s smart, irreverent, unapologetic and the toughest lady I know. She’s had to deal with hardship and health issues that no one should have to endure, yet comes out on the other side on a regular basis… fighting. From her Breitbart post, I Fight:
So there I stood in my kitchen, still blotting the river of tears that flowed down my face with the tissues my little boy had brought me as the TV continued to proclaim the terrible news that the Great American Hero Andrew Breitbart had died, I didn’t notice that my son had left the room for a moment but I sure did take note of what he did when he came back. My mighty little warrior returned to the kitchen, with his shiniest toy sword held aloft as he gestured towards the TV, which still showed Andrew Breitbart’s picture, and then my boy looked me right in the eye and said,
“Don’t cry mommy, I’ll fight! … I FIGHT!”
I have no doubt that he will. He makes his momma so proud, but right now mommy has to do the fighting – as do all of you.
Fight we shall. Continue reading
A tag team effort by Con Mom, including yours truly:
Media Malpractice: Mayor of Pomeroy resigns after gay slur, media leaves off party affiliation.
I include the above article at The Blaze in that malpractice. They blew this off too.
Laziness, incompetence or malice? LL1885 did a quick look up of the MEIGS COUNTY board of elections voter list using all three Pomeroy districts and found Mary McAngus pretty quick. She’s a registered Democrat. Go look it up yourself. If it’s laziness, you can find it here.
McAngus did the right thing in resigning. Her comments were pathetic.
Indeed. Very pathetic. What should matter is if he is competent not what he does in the bedroom.
I started calling it out on Twitter:
Every outlet covering the Mary McAngus story blew off the research. ConMom (and I) did it for them: wp.me/s2XVDr-3641

He’d be 44 today. I imagine he smiles each time a vile, leftist tweet attack is retweeted by the thousands of happy warriors who have risen up since his passing.

THE FRIDAY FOCUS
Media Priorities Edition
Hey, did you know we’re supposed to be mad at Mitt Romney for the attacks on our Embassies in the Middle East? Yeah, well, the State Run media has taken it upon themselves to make Romney the story instead of the four Americans murdered at the hands of Islamists – one of the dead was our Libyan Ambassador.
It’s a big, dirty job ignoring our Ambassador’s body being dragged around the streets of Libya and instead opting to make Romney’s statement the story. A statement that was exactly what needed to be said. Perhaps that’s why the media has to coordinate their efforts. The media are really kicking into overdrive on this one. It’s a real collaborative effort. Pulling out all the stops — lefty stops that is. Obama’s support of the Arab Spring and his disastrous foreign policies have his media lapdogs running like mad to cover for him.
Yes. It’s more important to make sure that the State Department’s pathetic apology is wiped clean from the news stories and replaced with headlines like this: Mitt’s Major Meltdown – NYTimes.com and this one Romney camp tries to manage fallout from Libya response – CNN. Let’s not leave out the hyperbole from the LA Times, who still hasn’t release the Rashid Khalidi tape: L.A. Times Writer: Romney Should Just ‘Triple Down’ and Campaign With Koran-Burning Pastor
The fallout is on the other side of the political fence, fellas. It took Obama 16 hours to backtrack on that apology, Obama’s own statement is rife with religious freedom hypocrisy as he has waged war on religious freedom here in the US via his HHS mandate and now, after snubbing Netanyahu, Obama has invited Egyptian President Morsi here to the US! Obama has his priorities, which include Letterman appearances and Las Vegas fundraising with people like Beyonce and Jay-Z.
Meltdown? You mean like this?:
“Gov. Romney seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later,” said Obama, who has supported the rise of Islamist governments in Egypt and Libya. – Daily Caller
Using a shooting analogy. Glenn Reynolds’ assessment that at this point, a Carter re-run is a best case scenario. How proud Gabby would be of this New Tone at a time of National crisis and mourning. What a loaded sentence; pun intended. Obama’s presidency has been all about shooting first and aiming later. Stimulus? Solyndra? Fast and Furious? GM Bailout? Occupy? Arab Spring? The MSM wants us to forget that President Obama not only backed these uprisings which ultimately led to the events at our embassies, he helped fund them on various levels. This utterance is going to be added to the likes of ‘You didn’t build that’ and ‘the private sector is doing just fine’. It’s part two of ‘if they bring a knife, we bring a gun’.
No one really can sum up the media’s activities here in a one liner quite as well the way Jim Treacher can: Listen as MSM pros turn the murder of a U.S. ambassador into an opportunity to ask Romney why he’s so mean
Erick Erickson was my second choice: The American Media Beclowned Themselves Yesterday
Doug Ross reminds of the 10 things we should keep in mind:
5 . Liberal blogs — and their primary consumers in vintage media — needed a way to deflect criticism from President O’Carter. Their meme: Mitt Romney shouldn’t criticize an apology… that the Obama administration itself later disavowed.
At 11:53pmlast night Talking Points Memo released a statement from the Obama campaign condemning Mitt Romney for criticizing something the White House itself disavowed — an appalling apology issued by the State Department.
Eight hours later, President Obama finally got around to condemning the monsters who attacked us on our own soil and killed our fellow citizens.
Yesterday, on the 11th anniversary of September 11, the Obama White House snubbed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, accepted an invitation from David Letterman, and apologized to Islamists upset over a film that mocks Islam and Mohammed — something “artists” in America do to Christianity with my tax dollars on a fairly regular basis.
Make sure you hit the other 9 items Doug Ross has listed! The MSM wants more apologies – specifically ones from Romney. They want him to shut up and stop looking Presidential. They want all of us to think Romney said something horrific. Well, he did say something horrific — but it was only horrific to the MSM, the Left and this administration. Romney stood up there and in a nutshell said ‘You’re wrong and you don’t speak for us.’ Romney was right, the President was wrong.
Some personal thoughts on the apology and the growing hysterical reaction from the MSM I have are along the lines of watching a film of an egg flying through the air in slow motion. You know it’s going to fall and smash open, spilling its contents everywhere and making a mess. You watch it soar end over end, wondering when it will drop and then without warning, the film snaps to a scene of an egg in a pan — and they are already scrambled. Hey, what happened to the egg that was going to be floor roadkill? It was cruising for a messy end and now we have edible, fluffy eggs? What?? Maybe NBC can teach me their editing tricks sometime.
Analogies aside, our free press seems awfully quick to jump to talk of censorship and even jailing people for free speech when it comes to Islam in particular. A few examples from the fine, racist clowns at MSNBC:
MSNBC host: Hey, let’s prosecute Jones as accessory to ambassador’s murder
MSNBC Commentators: DoJ Should Prosecute Americans Who Made Anti-Muslim Film
By the MSNBC’s logic, it was our fault for allowing such a film to be made and therefore it was justified for the Libyans to murder our citizens over it – just ignore that Constitution thing. Last night, as I talked with Mr. Liberty about these two stories I just listed, I made the analogy the media seems to be pulling the ‘her skit was too short, she was asking for it’ rape defense. It makes me a rather sick to my stomach listening to this kind of apologist crap. Movie or no movie — it makes NO DIFFERENCE. The movie was over 2 months old and it’s quite frankly, terrible. Small kids using a camera by accident could have made a better film. All this is besides the point. The film was an excuse to riot on 9/11. Islam is big on symbolism and 9/11 is a pretty big day for Muslims who hate us.
At any rate, the MSM is going to be very busy. The rioting and attacks on US embassies are spreading — Yemen, Tunisia, Sudan, Kuwait and Iraq. In Yemen, the rioters were chanting ‘death to America’ and death to Israel’. I have little doubt Obama’s feckless foreign policy wasn’t really so feckless as it was a calculated manipulation of a region bent on taking Israel out. So…Will the MSM prescribe more apologies since it seems to be working so well?

Speech of the night without question goes to Paul Ryan. I’m sure Obama curled up with his laptop and cried last night after seeing that speech. My favorite passage:
Obamacare, as much as anything else, explains why a presidency that began with such anticipation now comes to such a disappointing close.
It began with a financial crisis; it ends with a job crisis.
It began with a housing crisis they alone didn’t cause; it ends with a housing crisis they didn’t correct.
It began with a perfect Triple-A credit rating for the United States; it ends with a downgraded America.
It all started off with stirring speeches, Greek columns, the thrill of something new. Now all that’s left is a presidency adrift, surviving on slogans that already seem tired, grasping at a moment that has already passed, like a ship trying to sail on yesterday’s wind.
President Obama was asked not long ago to reflect on any mistakes he might have made. He said, well, “I haven’t communicated enough.” He said his job is to “tell a story to the American people” – as if that’s the whole problem here? He needs to talk more, and we need to be better listeners?
Paul Ryan Rocks. Period. The end. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200.
O.K., enough mooning over Ryan — Now, on to the meat of last night’s Convention.
This is a roundup of the speakers and related articles for the RNC 2012 Night Two. You can find my post for RNC Night One here. I watched the speeches on UNC-TV, the public station here in the Triangle, NC. I had to if I wanted to actually SEE the speeches in their entirety, since when I browsed local ABC and CBS, it was mostly their talking heads yapping while you could see the speaker on the stage behind them clearly still talking. NBC (WRAL) local didn’t even have coverage of the convention last night. Pathetic.
One piece that needs to be addressed from my RNC Night One post is Juan Williams. It appears he has issued an apolo-attack to Ann Romney on the FOX news website. I read it and think Mr. Williams might want to call over to Current TV to inquire about positions available there. What an ass….but what do I know? I’m just a blogger. Read Dan Riehl’s slap-down of Williams’s apolo-attack – he nails it.
The schedule of events has the list of speakers each night. I’ve got the following speech videos linked below. The GOP has a YouTube channel set up for the convention as well, that’s a useful place to look for videos I may not have posted. My usual useful links and more are at the bottom of the post.
Ron Paul (video tribute)
Puerto Rico Governor Luis Fortuno
The best ones of the night, aside from Paul Ryan, were definitely Condoleeza Rice and Susana Martinez. By the way, Rice didn’t use a teleprompter. She just referred to her notes. Eat it, Obama. I am embedding Ryan and Rice’s speeches below as well, with the full text of their remarks above each video. I originally was going to just embed Ryan’s speech, but then I found out that ABC News Aired Less than Two Minutes of Condi’s Speech and decided ABC viewers might like to see her speech too. Take note of the protester who attempted to disrupt Ryan’s Speech. You can read about it here:
Abortion Rights Protester, Using Pass Obtained From Ron Paul Delegate, Disrupted Paul Ryan’s RNC Speech
I have one thing to say about that — Ron Paul Supporters continue to be their own worst enemies.
Here are the speeches: Continue reading
