Come for the Politics, Stay for the Pathologies

Holiday High-lynx

Miscellany from around the Web for an idle holiday weekend:

If you read nothing else today, read Wise Guys: The End of Free Market Capitalism  from American Thinker.

Councils of "wise men" will now rule America. This is an open assault on the Constitution and the freedom of the American people, and it must be stopped.

Politico Ben Smith on Clinton’s the Rich should pay more taxes:

"Brazil has the highest tax-to-GDP rate in the Western Hemisphere and guess what — they're growing like crazy," Clinton said. "And the rich are getting richer, but they're pulling people out of poverty."

What are they smoking in the White House now? Do you think it a coincidence that Soros is heavily invested in Petro Brazil? I’m just asking. And by the way, no – the little people are not being lifted out of poverty. That’s just the way it’s written in the socialist prayer book. But what-the-heck, bring on the class warfare. We don’t have enough problems around here.

Doug Ross on the implausible plausible deniability of the Sestak bribery claim.

Atlas Shrugs reports on the White House Press Pool report from the Prez’s  Memorial Day BBQ: at Louis Farrakhan’s house. Keep in mind, this is via Jackie Calmes, a NYT reporter. As it turned out, Farrakhan’s house was across the street from the Obama’s soiree, but his house was heavily patrolled by thugs known as Fruit of Islam. I’m not making this up. Why on earth did the Secret Service not push these thugs entirely out of the way of Obama’s entourage? Oh, that’s right: because they’re moose-lums. Unbelievable. Absolutely unbelievable.

Ted Nugent (proud Michiganian currently ranching in Texas) remembers our fallen heroes, and reminds us why we must never forget to honor them.

Strange Democratic bedfellows at BP make that jackboot that we’re keeping on BP’s neck look more like a ballet slipper, if you catch my drift.

Blog Prof on our Michigan Governor’s Progressive PAC promoting Van Johnson, commie-Truther-green-czar-wannabe. No wonder Michigan’s economy rests comfortably at the bottom of the heap.

And don’t miss this read about our most thin skinned president – evah!  Find out how a complete narcissist views the world. Hint: it’s all about him. There’s a real news flash.

 In Obama's eyes, he is always the aggrieved, always the violated, always the victim of some injustice. He is America's virtuous and valorous hero, a man of unusually pure motives and uncommon wisdom, under assault by the forces of darkness.

Did I mention he was delusional too?

There’s so much more good reading out there, including Peggy Noonan’s latest bleat, but that one deserves it’s own post.

Have a nice holiday weekend. We can resume our efforts to retake the country next week.
