John McCain Wins in Landslide! by Emerald City Elephant

Help Susan Sarandon Move

At least he will if Americans learn the insufferable, arrogant, idiot — radical socialist Susan Sarandon — has promised to move to Canada or Italy if he wins.

SUSAN SARANDON, who appeared in three films last year and won kudos for her TV movie “Bernard and Doris,” is still not a contented soul. She says if John McCain gets elected, she will move to Italy or Canada. She adds, “It’s a critical time, but I have faith in the American people.”

…What? You thought Susan of all people would be for Hillary Clinton? Well, no. She told John Hiscock: “I thought the whole point of feminism is that you’re not supposed to be defined by gender. I don’t understand the reasoning behind that, because I wouldn’t vote for Condoleezza Rice, and I hated Margaret Thatcher.”

Contribute to John McCain here.

American Elephant adds: So, does she take her insufferable idiot husband, Tim Robbins, with her?

The Recession That Wasn’t by American Elephant

What if Democrats threw a recession and nobody came?

WASHINGTON (AP) — The economy logged slightly better — but weak — growth in the first quarter, spurred by improved sales of U.S. products overseas. While that’s heartening, the country is still far from being out of the woods.

In fact, a closer look behind the 0.9 percent increase in the gross domestic product during the January-to-March period revealed much caution on the part of consumers who have been clobbered by the housing, credit and financial debacles.

Clobbered by? No, the vast majority of American consumers haven’t been clobbered by the housing, credit and financial debacles — they have been clobbered with them. Clobbered over the head almost daily by a mainstream media determined to elect a Democrat. Contrary to what you hear from the media, it is only a tiny portion of Americans who are in foreclosure — 0.51 percent of homeowners  —  the other 99.49 percent are not. And for the most part, the increase has been among speculators who intentionally jumped into the “house flipping” gold-rush, taking loans they knew they couldn’t afford in the hopes of getting rich quick.

But you wouldn’t know that from the hysterical reporting would you? It’s no wonder consumers are skeptical when on top of increasing gas and food prices, the media are daily insinuating that half the country are losing their homes, and telling us we’re in a recession that the facts don’t bear out.

The fact is that a recession is defined by two consecutive quarters of negative growth. So far, we haven’t even experienced one. This past quarters’ 0.9 % growth is up from the previous quarters’ 0.6 % growth. Sluggish, yes, but growth nonetheless.

So what should Americans do in times of economic uncertainty and slow growth?

The last thing they should do is elect politicians who are promising to raise taxes drastically and increase spending by over 900 billion to over a trillion dollars as both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, respectively, have promised to do. The best thing Americans can do is vote such people, virtually all the Democrats, out of office, not in.



Are We Safer? by The Elephant's Child

That is the headline from an important piece by John Hinderaker at Power Line blog, on Sunday, when many of you were out at the barbecue. Mr. Hinderaker says:

On the stump, Barack Obama usually concludes his comments on Iraq by saying, “and it hasn’t made us safer.” It is an article of faith on the left that nothing the Bush administration has done has enhanced our security, and, on the contrary, its variouis alleged blunders have only contributed to thenumber of jihadists who want to attack us.

Empirically, however, it seems beyond dispute that something has made us safer since 2001. Over the course of the Bush administration, successful attacks on the United States and its interests overseas have dwindled to virtually nothing.

Some perspective here is required. While most Americans may not have been paying attention, a considerable number of terrorist attacks on America and American interests abroad were launched from the 1980s forward, too many of which were successful. What follows is a partial history:



The Perilous Fight by American Elephant

For over 230 years, far better men than I have risked everything fighting for our independence, fighting to keep us together, putting themselves between America and the evils of the world. They are doing so now.

To a man they knew the dangers. To a man they went anyway.

Today we honor those who have fallen to keep us safe and free. We are forever in their debt.

We must always remember what they’ve done for us. Too many take it for granted. Still others really have no idea. That makes it even more important that the rest of us remember and honor them.

“Greater love hath no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15:13)

Of all the Memorial Day tributes I found, this was my favorite, but it is one that I can’t embed on our page, so I hope you’ll click the link and watch it. These were also very moving tributes…

Thank you to all who serve. God bless and keep those who gave all.



More help from Democrats on the price of gas… by The Elephant's Child

According to Investors Business Daily, “at a hearing of the House Committee on Global Warming Representative Edward Markey, D—Mass., said he didn’t understand why President Bush wasn’t releasing oil from the nation’s reserves stored in underground salt domes in Texas and Louisiana.”

Energy Secretary Samuel Bodman attempted to explain that the reserves are “meant to deal with…the physical interruption of the flow of oil to this country. We don’t have that issue today.”

Representative Markey apparently believes that releasing oil from our strategic reserve in order to lower the price of gas at the pump is more important than national security.

Last year Representative Markey introduced a bill (H.R. 39 ) that would make the 1.2 million acre coastal plain of ANWR — which was set aside for oil exploration when ANWR was established — a permanently off-limits wilderness. Please note that the area to be drilled is about the size of an ordinary airport in an area the size of South Carolina, and is mostly mud-flats.

So extracting 10 billion barrels of oil from ANWR is unimportant and doesn’t affect the price of gas, but opening the strategic reserves…

Can you follow this logic?



Democrats give Americans lesson in REAL Fascism by American Elephant

When oil company executives are getting the better of her in Congressional hearings on the price of gas, Democrat Maxine Waters loses it, and accidentally lays it all on the line…

Nor is this an anomaly. We’ve heard this theme before…

Despite the rantings you hear from ignorant liberals about “fascist” Republicans and Bushitlerchimpy — whatever it is they say — this is what fascism really looks like: dictatorial government, centralized control of private enterprise, repression of all opposition (the promised “fairness” doctrine). The very definition of fascism.

These people are not joking! They already want to nationalize health care. I have suspected for a long time, given their demagoguery of the oil companies, that this is coming if they get the chance.

They won’t do it in one bold stroke: they know the people wouldn’t accept it. But they will do it stealthfully, incrementally. One bill at a time, demonizing Republicans for not caring all the while. But they will do it.

So, strap yourselves in! If Obama or Hillary take the White House and Democrats increase their control of Congress, this country is in for a drastic lurch to the left — and drastically more expensive and less available energy.

Lord, help us!
