YES, THE MAGIC FASCIST REALLY SAID THATů Print E-mail

...at a Portland, Oregon rally on May 18.  The media showed pictures of a vast crowd of over 70,000 and called it the Obama Mass.  What the press didn't report is that what drew the crowd was a free concert by a local rock band, wildly popular in Portland, called The Decemberists.

So of course, the commiespondents didn't report that the band is so pro-Communist it opened its act at the rally as it does at all its shows by playing the Anthem of the Soviet Union.  Maybe that should be Obambi's campaign theme song.

Wasn't it just a couple of weeks ago that the HFR's glass was overflowing?  This week the HFR is staring at a glass that's just about empty. 
 
What with the eco-fascists' victory of fraud over science regarding polar bears, the homo-fascists' victory of cultural insanity in the California courts, the Republicans in Congress in full yellow-belly retreat from any conservative principles (e.g., over half of House Pubs voted for $300 billion of pork in the Farm Bill on Wednesday, 5/14), John McCain proving on Monday (5/12) he remains a clueless ignoramus on "global warming," and other such dregs of the week, the HFR has to search hard for a few drops of good cheer.

Should we start with the tabloids?  Perhaps you've seen, as have millions of others as they stood in the check-out line at the market, tabloid front pages blaring:

o-globe
o-globe2
 
Trashy tabloids like the Globe are not to be taken seriously, of course.  Is Obambi bisexual?  The HFR has no idea.  But what is clear is that...

THE WAGES OF WHITE HOUSE COWARDICE Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler   
Thursday, 15 May 2008

When President Bush condemned the "false comfort of appeasement" in his speech to the Israeli Knesset, Barack Hussein Obama and the Pelosicrats promptly went bananas with phony outrage over Bush's statement, thinking it was comparing their Dem Messiah to Neville Chamberlain. 

But the compulsive appeasers Bush was really talking about were his Secretary of State Condi Rice, his National Security Advisor Steven Hadley - and, indeed, himself.

If Hussein Obama wasn't such an effeminate metrosexual pantywaist, he would have brushed off the defensive chip on his padded shoulder and condemned Bush for embodying such a "false comfort."

Instead, he doesn't have the brains - nor do his Pelosicrat hysterical defenders - to grasp that his "protest too much" claim of not being an appeaser only serves to highlight in voters' brains that he is - that he would be vastly more of a coward in the White House than GW.

REPUBLICANS DESERVE TO LOSE Print E-mail
Written by Jack Kelly   
Thursday, 15 May 2008

A message from Mississippi has interrupted the leisurely cruise Republicans in Congress have been taking up the river De Nile.  Democrat Travis Childers soundly defeated Republican Greg Davis in a special election in a House district that President Bush carried by 25 percentage points in 2004.  

Mr. Childers' victory completes a trifecta for Democrats in once heavily Republican districts. You don't need a weatherman to tell which way the wind is blowing.  The Republican brand today is as popular as Tylenol's was during the cyanide poison scare.

The bitter wind from Mississippi has replaced complacency with panic, but many Republicans don't know what to do about it.  Many blame President Bush, with good reason.  But the larger reason for the troubles of congressional Republicans is that they are viewed (alas, correctly) as being motivated by little else than self enrichment.

DEFEATING MOOKIE THE MEDIA HERO Print E-mail

Friday, 16 May 2008

Few foreign leaders have received as favorable news coverage in the United States as has the Moqtada al Sadr, with less factual basis for it.

Mookie, as our troops call him, is the nominal head of the Mahdi Army, a radical Shia militia, and of the Sadrist political movement, which holds 30 seats (of 275) in the Iraqi parliament.   His patron is Iran, which provides him with money, arms and military training.

The last couple of months have been dreadful for Mookie everywhere except on the pages of American newspapers and magazines.

ACHIEVING REAL SOCIAL SECURITY Print E-mail

Berlin, Germany. If you were asked to name one person who has enabled more people to gain wealth and security than any other person on the globe, who would you name?

In 1881, here in Berlin, Otto von Bismarck started the world's first modern pay-as-you-go social security system which served as the model for the U.S. Social Security system and that of many other countries, including setting the retirement age at 65. No, Bismarck is not the answer to the opening question.  

The answer is a fellow named José Piñera , for he has made life more secure and prosperous for millions, and with luck it will soon be billions of people. Here is how.

THE CURSE OF SOCIAL JUSTICE Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Joel Wade   
Friday, 16 May 2008

I have a 10 year old at home, and she is always saying, "That's not fair." When she says that, I say, "Honey, you're cute; that's not fair. Your family is pretty well off; that's not fair. You were born in America; that's not fair. Honey, you had better pray to God that things don't start getting fair for you."  P.J. O'Rourke. The Problem is Politics

The focus by progressives, liberals, racial hucksters and demagogues on entitlements, grievances, and "social justice" is a smokescreen for one of the basest of human motivations: Envy. The effect on those who seek such leveling by force is as tragic as the effects on the rest of us for their efforts.

Envy is simply helpless greed. If we think of greed as the elevation of things over the people in our lives, then envy is that same sentiment from a passive or helpless position - though the liberal con men and women on the left make it out to be much more noble than all that.

THE TALE OF THE ARAB FLIGHT CREW Print E-mail
Written by To The Point News   
Friday, 16 May 2008

The brand spanking new Airbus 340-600, the largest passenger airplane ever built, sat in its hangar in Toulouse, France without a single hour of airtime.  Enter the Arab flight crew of Abu Dhabi Aircraft Technologies (ADAT) to conduct pre-delivery tests on the ground, such as engine runups, prior to delivery to Etihad Airways in Abu Dhabi.  The date was November 15, 2007.

The ADAT crew taxied the A340-600 to the run-up area. Then they took all four engines to takeoff power with a virtually empty aircraft.  Not having read the run-up manuals, they had no clue just how light an empty A340-600 really is.

The takeoff warning horn was blaring away in the cockpit because they had all 4 engines at full power. The aircraft computers thought they were trying to takeoff but it had not been configured properly (flaps/slats, etc.) Then one of the ADAT crew decided to pull the circuit breaker on the Ground Proximity Sensor to silence the alarm.

This fools the aircraft into thinking it is in the air.

The HFR opens this week by celebrating Naqba - that glorious event the suicidal schmucks of the Arab world, the Palestinians, call "the Catastrophe."  Yes, the creation of Israel 60 years ago in May of 1948 was a catastrophe for people filled with envy and hate.  But for anyone who admires triumphs of the human spirit, the existence of Israel is not just something to celebrate on its 60th birthday, but every single day....

.... From one inspiring story to another.  The HFR raises a glass of Chianti to a great Italian, Roberto Calderoli.

The government of Libya had threatened (last Friday, 5/02) new Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi with "catastrophic consequences" should Calderoli be appointed to his Cabinet.  That was because in February of 2006, Calderoli, a leader of Italy's Northern League Party, appeared in an interview on national television wearing a t-shirt with cartoons of Mohammed - in sympathy with the Danish cartoonists who drew them....

... The HFR switches to Chablis to look down its nose at all the white wine liberals in such a tizzy over Hillary Clinton's channeling George Wallace by saying "hard working white Americans support me."  Then her key advisor Paul Begala had the chutzpah to point out an obvious truth:  that "Obama can't win with just the eggheads and African-Americans."

So here is the HFR's prediction....

... We close this week's HFR with two additional indications of why Obambi Hussein is going to lose.

HOW TO BE FREE OF FOREIGN OIL Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler   
Friday, 09 May 2008

In a speech last Friday (5/02), President Bush called for increased oil and gas production "in Alaska and our outer continental shelf."  Nancy Pelosi actually had the Orwellian effrontery to respond:

"Drilling is the failed energy policy of yesterday that has brought us record gas prices today."

Producing more oil causes higher prices!  How Orwellian doublethink can you get? She sneered at Bush's policy of increasing production and his promise to veto her party's attempt to demonize oil producers by calling it "drill and veto."

If the Republicans from John McCain on down are too stupid to take the Dems to the electoral cleaners with that, they deserve to lose.

If McCain & GOPco did have the brains, we could free of foreign oil, or well on our way, by the end of his first term.  Unfortunately, they don't - especially McCain.  He's so braindead he's opposed to drilling ANWR because it would be like drilling in the Grand Canyon.

But if by chance, his economic advisor, former Senator from Texas Phil Gramm, can persuade him to put national security over a howling Alaska wilderness, and get him to somehow grasp that the way to be free of foreign oil is through increased domestic production, then here's how it can be done.

THE STUPIDITY OF $4 A GALLON Print E-mail
Written by Jack Kelly   
Thursday, 08 May 2008

The average retail price of a gallon of gas in the U.S. this week is $3.61, according to the Energy Information Administration.  That's up 55 cents a gallon from this time last year.  Many analysts expect the price to approach $4 a gallon this summer.

Anticipating this, last month Sen. John McCain proposed suspending the 18.4 cent a gallon federal gasoline tax between Memorial Day and Labor Day.  Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has endorsed the idea.  Sen. Barack Hussein Obama has denounced it.

Sen. Obama wasn't always hostile to such "gimmicks."  As an Illinois state senator, he voted three times temporarily to suspend that state's gasoline tax.  Gasoline prices then were about $2 a gallon.

The 5% Illinois state sales tax on gasoline was suspended, despite Mr. Obama's objection, in June of 2000 for the remainder of the year.  The suspension led to a price decline of three percent compared to neighboring states.

BARACK "DON'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT HISTORY" OBAMA Print E-mail
Written by Jack Kelly   
Thursday, 08 May 2008

In his victory speech after the North Carolina primary, Sen. Barack Hussein Obama said something that is all the more remarkable for how little it has been remarked upon.  In defending his stated intent to meet with America's enemies without preconditions, Sen. Obama said:

"I trust the American people to understand that it is not weakness, but wisdom to talk not just to our friends, but to our enemies, like Roosevelt did, and Kennedy did, and Truman did."

That he made this statement, and that it passed without comment by the journalists covering his speech, indicates either breathtaking ignorance of history on the part of both, or deceit on the part of both.

THE GREATEST ENEMY OF MOSLEMS IS SAUDI ARABIA Print E-mail
Written by Ralph Peters   
Thursday, 08 May 2008

As corrosive as the Saudis have been for our system, they're far worse for Moslems.

The crucial point you have to grasp is that the Saudis don't give a downtown damn about Moslems - flesh-and-blood men, women or children. They only care about Islam. They'd sacrifice tens of millions of Moslems to further their perversion of the faith.

I've visited over a dozen Moslem countries and many more that have significant Moslem minorities. In every case, I've found the Saudis funding evil.

From Thailand to the United States, the Saudi goal is to prevent Moslems from integrating into their host societies. In poor countries, such as Kenya, they pay families to pull their children out of state schools and send them to madrassahs - where they learn to recite the Koran, but no career skills.

The Saudis don't mind if Moslems live in poverty and squalor - as long as Moslems don't identify with the societies around them. They want strict religious and cultural apartheid.

TRYING TO MAKE A BUCK IN BELGIUM Print E-mail
Written by Mercury Traveler   
Thursday, 08 May 2008

This is a personal story of what it's like doing business in Europe - specifically a part of Europe called Wallonia, or French-speaking Belgium.

In 1976 Occidental Oil constructed the Claymore Alpha gas production platform for the North Sea.

The platform had a total steel component of more than 600,000 tons. The modus operandi was to construct the platforms with prefabricated modules of 500 tons weight max each and put them together module by module. Since the North Sea only allows a good weather gap of 1 to 2 months each year in summer time, the costs and time delays were staggering.

A Dutch maritime engineer-pioneer, Pieter Heerema, had the fantastic idea to start constructing with 5,000 ton modules, ten times as big as before. He was the first to use an old tanker, welding compartments in it, and with the help of sensors and computer steering pump with massive pumps seawater in or out of the different compartments to counterbalance  the heavy loads.

But he had a very big problem.  I made the mistake of trying to solve it in Belgium.
