Hillary Clinton wants to “Assassinate Obama” says Keith Oba-mann

May 24, 2008 at 7:48 am (Politics) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

The Barack Obama Campaign Headquarters AKA MSNBC has once again showed its disgusting, overbearing bias tonight with Keith ”Oba-man” Olbermann’s “Special Comment” segment where he reacts to Hillary Clinton’s slip up of a statement earlier today.

Responding to a question from the Sioux Falls Argus Leader editorial board about calls for her to drop out of the race, Clinton said:

“My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. You know I just, I don’t understand it,” she said, dismissing the idea of abandoning the race.

Yeah big deal. She said the word ‘assassinate’. This is just a “hard-working White American” comment part 2. Throughout the campaign she messed up a few times in her choice of words in bringing a point across. Here, she obviously just means :

A lot of shit can happen in June, major table-turning events (such as a candidate getting killed) can happen, as has happened before; anything can happen, coincidentally, especially before or in the month of June which can dramatically impact the nomination, so stop bugging me about dropping out.

That’s how I see it. Yes her choice of words was a slip up or is politically incorrect once again, but hell these things happen, right sweetie? We shouldn’t get bitter about it.

However, Oba-mann threw a total bitchfit (see video), red-faced, going verbally ballistic on Clinton to the point of him apparently accidentally breaking a pencil or something on set, repeatedly showing the comments on screen and saying that it was “unforgivable”. He even spun the comment as Clinton calling for Obama’s assassination. WOW.

Its totally sickening. From now on anything political I’ll just inform my own self about it through the net rather than listen to the Obama lovefest between the borderline homosexual fan Chris “Shiver Up My Leg” Matthews and Keith-Obama-man. I know Reverend Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ has proclaimed itself as “unashamedly Black”…well MSNBC is unashamedly Obama. The research to conclusively prove that MSNBC, as well as a lot of other mainstream news networks are slanting greatly towards the idea of Barack Obama as the nominee or even President is beyond me, but on mere observation any random day its pretty obvious that there is a bias in Obama’s favor…and this issue is just another manifestation of that.

The whole coverage is basically : Obama can do no wrong and Clinton is a bitch from the start and we’re just waiting to prove it to you. I expect a flurry of loops of the video of Clinton making those comments, to see the comments scrolling in the ticker at the bottom, numerous comments from their many political analysts and the like. This may even be Hillary’s “YAHHHHHHH” moment.

I’ve already resigned myself to McCain winning so I guess it doesn’t matter.

Winston ‘Gypsy’ Peters is an Idiot

April 18, 2008 at 5:00 pm (Funny, Life, Politics, Rants, Trinidad) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

And a ghetto fabulous, embarrassing-ass one at that too. Handkerchiefs have been used for centuries, said to have been invented by Richard II of England. When used as an accessory to a suit, a handkerchief is known as a pocket square. Wikipedia lists several ways in which a pocket square can be folded :

  • The Presidential is folded at right angles to fit in the pocket.
  • The TV Fold is folded diagonally with the point inside the pocket.
  • The One-point Fold is folded diagonally with the point showing.
  • The Two-point Fold is folded off-center so the two points don’t completely overlap.
  • The Three-point Fold is first folded into a triangle, then the corners are folded up and across to make three points.
  • The Four-point Fold is an off-center version of the Three-point Fold.
  • The Cagney is basically a backwards version of the Four-point Fold.
  • The Puff or the Cooper is simply shaped into a round puff.
  • The Reverse Puff is like the Puff, except with the puff inside and the points out, like petals.
  • The Astaire is a puff with a point on either side.
  • The Straight Shell is pleated and then folded over to give the appearance of nested shells.
  • The Diagonal Shell is pleated diagonally and then folded.

And here are some pictures of the pocket square in action :

Pocket Square

proper pocket square

Classy.

However, what the fuck is this?

Winston \'Gypsy\' Peters in Parliament

That’s NO pocket square people. That is in fact, a TIE HANGING OUT OF MR. PETERS’ POCKET. And not just any tie, its identical to the one he’s wearing with his shirt! Yes, its not just an embarrassingly, ignorant, fashion disaster choice, he’s color-coordinating it! A grown man, a MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT in the Lower House of the Parliament of Trinidad and Tobago thinks its fucking proper to hang a tie out of his pocket! Either that or he foolishly thought that the people he saw with fabric hanging out of their pockets (pocket squares) were hanging ties out of their pockets too!

And it gets worse!

Bling bling????

From this pic its seen that MP Peters is wearing an earring!! What the fuck???? Isn’t that like, disrespectful or something? What’s next platinum teeth?? I wear an earring too everyday but I’m sure if I were elected to Parliament I would have to stop wearing it then….or atleast not begin wearing one, uber-ignorantly thinking it constitutes proper attire.
How esteemed. From this pic we can also see the TIE HANGING OUT a little more.

Another pic from my TV on the Parliament channel which identifies this disgrace (Mr. Winston Peters, MP – Member for Mayaro)  that ridiculed the House of Representatives on that day.

What a joke. What clowns these people are. Would a US Senator or a UK MP come to a sitting looking anything remotely like that jackass???

Giving Up on the Democrats

April 12, 2008 at 9:05 am (Politics, Rants) (, , , )

I’m not sure what to think anymore when I see polls showing Obama still has leads over Hillary Clinton. Even after all the controversy. What will it take for Americans to stop falling head over heels for this man? An exposé of his past which suggests he’s a lying, unpatriotic, radical racist? Oops. Happened already.

Which brings me to think, fuck the Democrats. They seem to have a knack for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. With an economy on the verge of a recession, a largely unpopular war and the general dislike of Bush and his neo-con entourage, the Dems had this election in the bag. Just like they did last time when Bush was up for a second term. However, just like in 2004, they’re about to nominate a jackass to go up against the Republicans.

We knew Kerry was an idiot long before he was nominated. He changes his mind on issues according to numbers in the polls, to the point of him sounding like a badly configured robot. We all know his famous line “I voted for the war, before I voted against it”. He’s boring. The whole swift-boat veterans for truth thing raised a lot of questions about his self-proclaimed war hero credentials. Yet they bitchslapped Howard Dean by nominating Kerry, with all those weaknesses just screaming to be exploited by the Republicans for the Presidential race.

Here we are faced with a similar situation. It isn’t going to be pretty when John McCain et al start attacking Obama about the Rev. Wright incident, given he’s chosen as the nominee. Its a weakness they are happy for, that they can prepare for from now till October, they probably even did the ads already. So then why risk nominating him? Why drive a car with a flat tire? I really don’t know or care anymore. I’ll support Obama to be nominated and embarassed by a landslide defeat, because maybe only then will he and his supporters wake up to the reality that he isn’t fit to be President, and that feeling is likely to be more satisfying than to see him lose now.

Why is Everything in Trinidad Suddenly So Depressing?

April 5, 2008 at 5:32 am (Funny, Life, Misc, Politics, Rants, Stress, Trinidad) (, , )

I usually don’t like to read or link to the Trinidad Express because of its poorly designed website, but this was interesting, or rather, depressing. These are the stories for today, Saturday 5th April 2008 :

“A Routine Affair” – Minister of Consumer Affairs on looting
Apparently on Thursday two truck drivers got robbed on the Beetham Highway and their cargo of groceries (juice, milk and flour) was stolen.  When asked to comment, the Minister of Consumer Affairs said in essence, “wtf, dudes get robbed there all the time, what’s the big deal?”. This may be somewhat true, in a  in terms of the random times people inadvertently stop anywhere close to Beetham Gardens (the ghetto), but should he be saying that? Especially since I can’t remember from any of those incidents any trucks with groceries being robbed before? Are we really at this stage now? That the govt can tell us “walk it off” when certain crimes are committed?

“Issue not about laptops”, says Panday
The fucking jackass of a wish-he-was-a-revolutionary, red-beret-wearing, foolish, crazy opposition leader of the UNC by the name of Basdeo Panday is still talking about his “wrongful ejection” from the Parliament because he so innocently in the middle of a sitting whipped out a laptop and began doing who knows what on it. MPs or Ministers using laptops while in Parliament is a contentious issue, but the fact of the matter is laptops aren’t allowed in Trinidad’s Parliament. Why then is this idiot all over the news making a spectacle of himself, throwing fucking ridiculous red herrings about a “conspiracy” between the ruling party and the Speaker of the House when all he had to do was to abide by the rules, close the laptop and STFU? Should I come into an exam with a laptop, for some sort of ridiculous reason, and attempt to…omg the stupidity of these assholes…SUE THE UNIVERSITY (SPEAKER) when i’m kicked out?? Yet thousands of people in Couva vote for this man. Downright disgusting.

Rioting prisoners hurl faeces
I shit you not…

And then the combo of :

Murder..
Trini Soldier Gets Killed in Iraq..
Double Road Fataility..
Guy Dies While Watching Cricket..
A Soldier Lets Off a Stun Grenade in PoS..
More Price Increases..

 Wow. So death, inflation, explosions, govt nonchalance to crime, and hurling shit. Those are the stories of the day. Should the newspapers be renamed to “Migrate to Another Country…Because :”.

Its really sad. For months I’ve abstained from watching the local news because i was fedup of hearing about murders, but now i’m forced to to know if I should walk with a $10 bill or my Debit Card to purchase common groceries at the supermarket..

Obama’s Smokescreen

March 21, 2008 at 7:53 am (Barack Obama, Politics) (, , , , , , )

Someone went snooping around in Barack Obama’s passport file at the State Department. Obama’s people are up in arms, issuing the following statement :

“This is an outrageous breach of security and privacy, even from an Administration that has shown little regard for either over the last eight years. Our government’s duty is to protect the private information of the American people, not use it for political purposes. This is a serious matter that merits a complete investigation, and we demand to know who looked at Senator Obama’s passport file, for what purpose, and why it took so long for them to reveal this security breach,” Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton said in a statement.

I personally watched MSNBC cover this for over an hour, nonstop, since the story broke.

Intentional or not, this is a smokescreen by Obama’s campaign, which the media will gladly, with a smile, a “‘shiver up the leg”, a steak and a blowjob, cooperate with. Ok, it is a big deal, people shouldn’t really be snooping around in your records, especially records which detail every country you’ve visited your whole life…but um, don’t try to make it into some kinda conspiracy…”the man’s out to get you” thing. It just isn’t. Its a plain case of a couple of employees recognizing a name and being curious, and well… breaking a few laws in doing so and therefore got their ass fired, end of story. It would be cool to say “if I see coverage of this story continue till Monday I’ll strip off my clothes and roll in dog shit” but I’m pretty sure I would be doing some rolling on Monday if I were to take that to heart. My problem is, its only been a few hours since the story came out but hey, lets move on. What the fuck is next? “BREAKING NEWS : OBAMA’S MISSING HIS SOCKS”?

Its a whole new Pandora’s box being opened, examining and speculating all sorts of bullshit (the Republicans are behind it, Hillary Clinton is behind it, whether they added shit in the file, what they did with it, the timeline, why they did it,…ahh!)…that almost, conveniently I might add, takes our minds off the scandal of the last two weeks. But, give it up, the Obama campaign needs to join the pack and make up more stupid excuses for my entertainment about Obama’s story of “typical white people” or about how much Rev. Wright means to them….because this shit is not going to make us forget it.

*UPDATE*

Turns out, the 2 nosy employees who checked out Obama’s file….checked out McCain’s file and Clinton’s file as well!! So now the attention is again shared between his diversionary tactic speech, described by MSNBC’s Chris Matthew’s (seen in drag in this video) as one Abraham Lincoln would give…and ofcourse his relationship with Rev. Wright.

Wrighting off Obama

March 15, 2008 at 8:32 am (Celebrities, Funny, Life, Misc, Politics, Rants, Trinidad, UWI) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Well! There are a number of things I could have blogged about today..it could have been :

Steve-O held with coke (apparently its all 80’s Miami now in Hollywood) going into the nut house..

UWI’s launch of a “virtual campus” in July (the physical one is already in a total mess would the virtual one just be a collection of error messages and viruses?)

a Minister in the Ministry of Finance saying “Fuck you” to everyone that’s concerned about the ridiculous rate of inflation in Trinidad

or my favorite, what came in as a very close second..

the beating and “citizen’s arrest” of 4 men from Ghana trying to sneak into Trinidad from Moruga

But this story just takes the cake, the frosting, ice-cream, candles and the gifts.

Barack Obama has been a member and active follower of the United Trinity Church of Christ in Chicago for over 20 years, a church which describes itself here:

We are a congregation which is Unashamedly Black and Unapologetically Christian… Our roots in the Black religious experience and tradition are deep, lasting and permanent. We are an African people, and remain “true to our native land,” the mother continent, the cradle of civilization. God has superintended our pilgrimage through the days of slavery, the days of segregation, and the long night of racism. It is God who gives us the strength and courage to continuously address injustice as a people, and as a congregation. We constantly affirm our trust in God through cultural expression of a Black worship service and ministries which address the Black Community.

Wow. Sounds like a Black Panther/Farrakhanist cult to me. But…it’s a church, and i’m assuming they do pray and stuff…so we can probably let this slide. Obama has been recently trying to force it down the throat of the public that he’s African-American, so news like this can probably go in his favor, especially among Black voters.

..However, the detail of quintessential interest regarding Obama’s affiliation to this church is the role of Reverend Jeremiah Wright Jr., who’s been on the job at the church for 36 years :

  • Obama has claimed Wright is his “pastor, friend and spiritual mentor”Obama and Wright
  • Obama claims Wright to be the source of inspiration for his attempt to put himself on equal footing with Hillary Clinton, seeing that she published a best selling book just before running for the Democratic nomination book, “The Audacity of Hope”, modelled after hearing one of his sermons.
  • Mr. Wright is one of the first people Mr. Obama thanked after his election to the Senate in 2004.
  • Mr. Obama personally consulted Wright before deciding to run for President. He prayed privately with Mr. Wright before announcing his candidacy last year.
  • Wright was officially part of Obama’s campaign for President
  • Obama donated $22,500 (and reportedly up to $200,000 in total) to Wright’s church in 2006
  • Wright officiated at Obama’s wedding
  • Wright baptized Obama’s children

In a nutshell, they go way back. Insinuating Obama is trying to court evangelical voters you say? Quite the contrary, unintentional or not.

The problem is Reverend Wright has a history of making the craziest, leftist, most radical, racist, inflammatory comments at his sermons, many of which were faithfully attended by Mr. Barack Obama and his wife Michelle Obama for the last 20 years. Here are just a few excerpts :

“Hillary is married to Bill, and Bill has been good to us….No, he ain’t! Bill did us, just like he did Monica Lewinsky. He was riding dirty.”

“Hillary ain’t never been called a n****r.”

“The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing ‘God Bless America.’ No, no, no, God damn America, that’s in the Bible for killing innocent people….God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme.” – 2003 sermon

We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye”

“We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards. America’s chickens are coming home to roost
(First sermon after the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center – September 16th 2001)

lol. Absolutely unbelievable. This truly is Obama’s swiftboat. He began using race as his vehicle to securing the nomination, only to have it breakdown and explode in his face. The whole “i’m Black” thing is now in our faces, but not at all in a positive light. Similar to John Kerry using the swiftboat story as his method for bragging about how heroic he is, only to have it thrown back in his face, raising questions about his honesty and war hero credentials.

Obama is basically best friends with a Black supremicist and an anti-patriot. It doesn’t even matter whether he denounces Farakkhan anymore, if you’re buddies for 20 years with a guy that says the same thing that Farrakhan does. As a matter of fact it raises the question as to whether he really did truely denounce Farakkhan when confronted live with the fact that Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam supports his campaign.

The issue also brings up a number of interesting things about Obama :

  • What is his real reason for not supporting the war in Iraq…? Because its wrong…?…or because America is just a war-mongering state that randomly drops bombs on people..?
  • Did he intentionally not put his arm over his heart for the American anthem because he was really thinking “God Damn America?”
  • Were his wife’s comments about “being proud to be American for the first time” motivated from Wright’s sermons?
  • What does he really think about the Israel/Palestine conflict?
  • Would Wright still be part of his campaign if these facts weren’t brought to light? And if so, if elected as President of the “God-damned” America, what role will Rev. Wright officially play as a personal or official advisor?The fun still doesn’t stop. Even with 1000 words. The Obama campaign has been attempting to control the damage, reluctantly removing Wright from the official campaign and with Obama coming up with a video of a bullshit, sincere as a pathological liar on laughing gas, illogical to anyone with an IQ above 10 denouncement of the pastor’s statements, a considerable time after the story broke, which means he himself reluctantly did so, after leaving room hoping the story would go away.Certain idiots on blogs that I’ve read are also saying shit like “Obama’s minister’s words and beliefs aren’t Obamas” ,“Trinity has done a lot for the community and his words don’t make it racist” and similar nonsensical phrases. This is my response :
  • Why would someone donate thousands of dollars to an organization they kinda support?
  • Technically, the Nazis were a political party too
  • Why would someone wake up every Sunday morning, get dressed, and bring their wife and children to sermons from someone for TWENTY YEARS/20 years/Vingt années/Veinte años/20年/二十年 which contain statements which you “vehemently disagree and strongly condemn”. That, has my honor of being the biggest load of insulting-to-my-intelligence bullshit I’ve ever heard in my life. What the fuck? Were the sermons required courses for his degree? Even for those I walk out or stop going when the lecturer starts straying off-topic and talking irrelevant stuff ….How about Hillary Clinton attending KKK rallies for 20 years, having a Klansman for her godfather and then trying to talk her way out of it…and worse yet carry on her presidential campaign??? Where are the Newsweek articles and covers with Obama’s face with headings like “Is it time to call it quits”?

It really is all amazing. These next few days will be interesting. If this doesn’t scare off white people into not voting for this man, I don’t know what will, a picture of him with Saddam? Obama needs to quit his nonsense, stop his lies and two-facedness, and bow out of the race hoping he gets Secretary of State or something, but most importantly, stop taking us for fucking idiots.
