Al-Awlaki Joins Bin Ladin in the Company of Virgins

The Virgin Mary was on hand to sequester her Ladies in Waiting from the leers of the pedophile / prostitute patron Imam of San Diego and “Face Book Friend from Hell” (thank you, Fox & Friends) who greeted a drone missile with the famous inquiry: “Who the hell are you?”

I have always admired the Women of Wealthy Clans and Families who make a home for all family members, regardless of status and are gracious in their preservation of civilization among the would-be savages who enter their presence and are melted by Grace.

Men of the Middle East who impose terror on their countries by threatening women and veil their lust with a pretense of modesty-driven dress codes have seen a symbolic change. Saudi Arabia will honor those who are the chauffers, errand-runners, PTA and Community activists with DRIVERS’ LICENSES AND THE FREEDOM to actually get behind the wheel of their cars and get themselves where they’re going. Near the Saudi Border, just 40 miles away, a US Drone nailed the New Mexico born, American educated dual-citizen Internet pastor of hopeless young men who were callously exploited in their need for guidance. In Oman, to the East of Yemen, a Prince of the realm funded the release of, first the young American female and then her hiking companions. Are the Gentlemen of the Arab World coming to understand the tempering effect of FEMALES on the uncontrollable males they have Obaticized? While Reed and Pelosi are hanging out the sunroof of Obama’s Joyride in the Ship Of State, decent folk, not “invited” to the Party, are observing with awareness.

It’s just a matter of time before officers of the Peace have seen enough and have accrued enough “evidence and shown cause” to step in and restore order. In the misery of the last eleven years, we have suffered incompetence in the Oval Office first “brained” by Woman-Hating Karl Rove, then by the “dual-citizen of the World,” Obama who HIMSELF “vacationed” in Pakistan during his radicalizing years. The males of the Axlerod/Gibbs DNC are now marginalized by the true men of the Administration, Leon Panetta and David Patraeus. Having swapped roles and exchanged “Intelligence” in the process, they bring Hillary’s stand-in a slam-dunk he can remotely witness. Without any threat to a single golden kink of his hair, The Occupant of the Oval Office has permitted CLINTON’S PEOPLE to prove that the machinery of government of a Free People cannot be stymied by pretentious publicity-seekers and manipulators. Just as the Clinton People learned to respect Hillary for her fidelity to the man she loved in a pressure cooker, they learned to filter out the personally ambitious through her doomed campaign. And Hillary, the World’s #1 Diplomat, has personally traveled to, shaken hands with and faced world leaders in the most threatening financial circumstances, and brought peace of mind, that the Clintons, while getting little credit for their service, are Lamp Bearers, taking the Shining City on the Hill to the World. Where the Saudi’s once saw us as their Cash Cow, they now see us as their Dairy, where the milk of human kindness is gleaned from the peace-abiding, the long-suffering, preservationists. In the face of CHANGE they are reassured that some things remain, as you have come to rely upon, RELIABLE. That be Hillary. To the Yemeni Al Qaida, we extend “sincere” condolences for your “loss,” and to the Obatterie, we say: “Heads UP!” You can “claim” yet another Victory brought about by the Clinton Peeps. And while you need a billion dollars to mount a re-election campaign, all HRC needs is her friends.

To The Presidential Advisors: LEADERSHIP CRED

When the drones observe “the Boss” breezing through his employees’ work zone, what they actually witness is the Agent of the Support System into which their efforts and energies, accrued expertise and will are condensed. Enroute to the top job in the company, this Chief Executive would have surrounded himself with a solid structure of competent performers who think like him, in a “Company-First” synchrony.

Another “Barry” clueless out in Left Field with the jock attitude, awaits the verdict from a Jury deliberating the issue of his fidelity to the Truth. Son of Baseball Great Bobby Bonds, Godson of Willie Mayes, this Barry was incapable of understanding what it was the FANS expected from his greatness. While Bonds demanded attention and big money in a quid-pro-quo ploy to deliver to the Pirates only as much as he perceived Tribute had purchased, he routinely alienated ticket buyers, autograph seekers and event patrons with a “No Show” snottiness that didn’t play at all in Pittsburgh. Without Bobby Bonnilla next door in Center, Bonds could not have begun to deduce what his job was out there in the “Corner” of Three Rivers. Sure, he had the “trick” blythe catch of dropping fly balls into an upturned, confidant glove – and almost always caught the third out thusly with the showy clipped step to start running to the dugout ending the inning. But Bonds never really grasped the relationship between the “players” in the seats with the “Stars” on the Field. Although the Pirates got to the Playoffs of Major League Baseball three years in a row in the early Nineties, The 30-30 club “Individual” record setter never delivered when the Team was in position to advance to the World Series. Bonds’ failure to prevent Syd Bream’s “The Slide” scoring the Braves’ winning run is burned into the retina of all Pirate Fans who find his current “juicing” saga not surprising. For all his talent, Bonds never had the “Heart” of a leader and couldn’t equate his own self-interest with that of his Team or his Town.

Speak to the Democrats who lost in November about the President’s “leadership” and you might get a stunning review of the “Context” in which they played ball with Barry through the chain-gang subordination that appeared, from here, to be a Pelosi/Reed Puppet Show. The DCCC Tough Guy, Emmanuel, promptly became the CCCC Tough Guy – Chicago Congressional Campaign Committee – the moment “individual opportunity” opened a door for Barry’s Chief of Staff. “Barry” from the Block is “NOW PLAYING” in the block-head game that will finally shut down the Government. As the New England Patriots observed of the gunslinger, Ben Roethlesberger in failing to lead the Steelers to the AFC Championship in 2005, “He played like what he is: A ROOKIE.”

Metaphorically, we discern, Alas!, that the “One” is working on his individual stats – far more interested in the numbers he’ll take into the negotiations with the Electorate as he seeks re-election, and the Progressives-led D.N.C. is subordinating its job of taking a TEAM into office with OFA redux. To quote a famous candidate from 2008: “You can put lipstick on a Pig, but it’s still a PIG.”

While the clay-footed Collasus continues to drive the Chariot of the Sun across the sky, the “horses” who pull the cart belong to Hillary and Bill. In a System of Checks and Balances, there is no room at the Top. There is nothing more than squirms and pressure, and in such a tightly confined wedge, the synergy, not the elements, is what makes for security. It would appear that the Exxpress Elevator to the Oval Office is for Freight, not Executive Delivery. In an ironic twist on the whole “Brother” in Chief extravaganza, the truly productive Workers of the World recognize the value of the Team Player who, in truth, both leads and contributes. Barry from the Blockade wedged out the “Team” from the fleeting Laurel Crown, but the Leadership he substitutes for legitimate neither galvanizes nor unites the key players. He has no Game, no Plan, no GOTO and absolutely no credibility for the Big One. He’s been around sports enough to understand the “What have you done for me?” lately or otherwise fan attitude.

Debbie Wasserman-Shultz (D) FL-20 To Clean Up DNC

Debbie Wasserman-Shultz - Florida's Half-Vote Getter

She gave the Voters of Florida lip service through the battle over the fate of the Primary results – the one the Democrats weren’t supposed to campaign in and yet “The One” got all kinds of campaign ads on the air, there. And the One Won by the Woman, Mrs. Clinton. While there was yet to be decided a plan, Wasserman-Shultz showed up in plenty of debates, proclaiming the rights of those she represented.

Then she went Obama and didn’t look back. As a reward, unlike Carolyn Maloney who was crudely stiffed by the Democratic Caucus, her Constituents disrespected, Ms. Wasserman-Shiultz was handsomely rewarded for flipping on HRC with a Leadership position in the Caucus. I recognized what they meant about Women / Leadership / “Not THAT Woman”

Continuing her Obama-like rise in the Party to the Stratosphere, Little Debbie was tapped, today, as the head of “His” Party to replace Tim Kaine. Not riding high on the November disaster and deeply in debt, the D.N.C. of course, turns to a Woman to redd up and put things back in order. The DNC gets no help from the President who is expected to snap his fingers and command the first Billion Dollar (that’s BILLION!) Presidential Election Campaign … for having spent so much money on those losers who bought into Obama Care and couldn’t get re-elected to flesh out the Congressional Majority that was supposed to guarantee Obama’s Presidential Achievement Record.

In a split second, during a conversation with My Congressman, Jason Altmire (PA-4) I understood how the Pelosi leadership manipulates the wanna-be’s…one of whom is Wasserman-Shultz. My Granddaughter, Danielle, lives in Fl-20. She’s Jewish, too, but only 15 and not yet a voter. We’ll monitor the Oddyssey of the Florida Primary and perhaps even plan to stay there next summer to attend the Republican Convention scheduled for Tampa…now you KNOW we’ll have a re-run of the pesky disruption of the Promenade of Primary States by virtue of the Florida Legislature pushing their “Weight” because, … well, because they have the votes!

I’ll be interested in monitoring the plan Wasserman-Shultz / Pelosi hatch to navigate this friendly fire. I’m going through the motions as a Pennsylvania State Democratic Committee Woman as I read the emails from my State Chair suggesting that the Democrats have determined: “That’s Our Story And We’re Sticking With It.” With Wasserman-Shultz in the Chair, it’s a guarantee that the Democrats will spin the Obama performance and beat our ears with how great their accomplishments are and how under-reported is that greatness.

Come On, Summer!!! I can readily justify tuning out these hackers if the message is” “Poor Baby Barak; He’s just not getting the credit he deserves for all he’s done for Americans.”

By the time this campaign is over, Women will be sticking knitting needles through their ears to escape the torture. I wish to be kind to my Granddaughter’s Congresswoman, but in my heart of hearts, while I respect her for grabbing the Opportunity when it knocked, I can’t separate my impression of her with the “sell-out” moniker and I won’t damn her for it. But I won’t be surprised when she’s confronted in November 2012 with the same sort of defeat suffered by Nancy Pelosi. Sadly, the political mentoring she’ll acquire working out of the DNC headquarters, which – last I had heard – had moved to Chicago, will not mesh with the expectations of Women who vote. Sure, she’ll surround herself with the Women of the Left to comfort herself, but she’ll have a tough time of it if she resumes her relationship with Gabrielle Giffords (D) AZ-8 upon her return to service. Giffords was re-elected in her defiant district because she offered a “Level with the Voters” approach to her work of representing them. Giffords’ appeal for funding to defend her district’s border with Mexico was largely ignored by her colleagues in the House….that was before the debacle of November 4, 2010. But the Democrats, and now, it appears, Wasserman-Shultz will be pitching some tough-to-swallow Kool Aid meant to support fund-raising for the President’s re-election. I doubt those once-bitten; twice shy incumbents will be on the Bandwagon when it comes through their Districts. The Democrats who survived 2010 aren’t feeling too sorry for the “likeable but radioactive” Obama. If they are permitted to choose their preference, I’m betting some of them might even be persuaded to go thumbs down as Super Delegates to the Charlotte Convention.

I wish her well, but my instincts tell me Wasserman-Shultz is going to be getting a whole lot of attitude flung at her, and of course, when she doesn’t succeed, it won’t be because she’s a Progressive “Yes!” Gal, it will undoubtedly be due to her not TALKING ENOUGH! These Democrats sound more like Women every day:)

Weiner Calls Out Boehner – We’re All Just Guys

At the Presidential Introduction of Energy Secretary, Steven Chew, who – by O’s admission – actually deserved his Nobel Prize followed by (what Willie Geist called a Beavis & Butthead laugh) an extended heh, heh, heh….much like our own Betty Jean does at particularly skewering “jokes,” I couldn’t ignore the demonstration of Essential Obama. To Ms. Mag, I would offer an update: “THIS IS WHAT A GENTLEMAN’S “C” LOOKS LIKE.” In that self-amused Window, I saw the Maynard G. Krebbs of the business of the world: “WORK!” is simply not on his agenda, and to go into one’s garage on weekends to “tinker” with ways to extract natural gas is – by the President’s expression, one would infer – laughable…. beyond his capacity to relate… just the kind of kookie thing that wins one – legitimately – a Nobel Prize. In the College Crowd adoration mode we like to call Campaign, the Candidate resumes his “put down” Mean Girls schtick that wins him insecure minions readily wound up and manipulated like emotional missiles. Privileged Preppie who, no matter how elevated his own status remained in comparison to the rest of us, could always find rationale to whine about how he suffered humiliation at the hands of his other bitchy teen-age classmates. No; Barrie wasn’t a victim of racism by White America. He was the typical adolescent cry baby “picked on” by the kids in his school who’s families were richer than Madelyn Lee Dunham and were Hawaiian. How he extrapolated that “Every Kid” gawky growing up experience into a Crusade of “I’m Half Black: I’m Collecting What’s Due Me, You’re standing on the spot I want: get out of my way!” may be crystallized in that demeanor he adopts when he takes the stage to “level with his peeps.”

This is a comedian. He takes his “room” with him and ridicules anybody who, by comparison, comes off looking even slightly serious about getting answers, results, “the Job Done.” Getting the JOB is the Goal, Dumbed-Down Affirmative Action Hookies. Getting it DONE is above my pay grade.

So, the Geist-Meister moves onto the next most amazing clip-of-the-week at the Congressional correspondents’ Dinner, Anthony Weiner addresses his name. “Vote for Weiner; He’ll Be Frank.” And Vote For Weiner; He’s On A Roll.” and “Really, like, who Is Boehner fooling? … What am I,… like, …Anthony WAY-ner?” Embrace It, Brother! Are they admitting they’re all just a bunch of dicks?

Is this the inevitable result of their “Beat The Girl” attitude that led them to hate working with Women? I GET it! Women, as Betty Jean self-imposed sabbatical to accept suggests, are notoriously difficult to work with. I’ve always felt it was due to their house-bound, narrow worldly, children-consumed duties that we are so crammed into a canyon with little flexibility and too many rules. But at the end of the day, WE KNOW we can do this job better than the hacker in chief, and We are the Ones We’ve Been Waiting For! I know the attitude. From any comedian’s point of view, actions that appear stupid are quite differently viewed when you’re facing down bloody noses, household finances and a spouse M.I.A. during March Madness.

Geraldine Ferraro dies at 75

Prima Donna

That's One Giant Leap For Womankind

Noted by MSNBC Twitter as the First Woman and First Italian American to head a major Party Ticket, we are saddened to learn that her passing has been announced.

When I lived in West Islip, NY and visited Fire Island on weekends, I always believed that the bi-plane beating me to the party deck was carrying Representative Ferraro. I know now that it was more likely a water taxi, but back then, whilst I still aspired to Public Office, it was one of the perks I truly believed well-heeled donors accorded their representatives. Those were the days before campaign finance reform, but, hey! I had no doubt she earned it.

Al-Shamikha (Majestic Woman) AlQaeda’s Cosmo Mag for Femmes

The Middle East Observer, UK, Post and India’s News outlets tell us that Muslim Women are noticed and to them, a glossy magazine is now offered for online order. The described debut front cover arouses recollection of Patty Hurst posing with an assault rifle before a graphic of the 7 Headed Cobra symbol of the SLA. “Tania” was chosen as a kidnapping subject for her publishing connections. The attention-getting tactics of revolutionaries are pretty basic.

Majestic Woman appeals to the female half of the Jihad Nation with advice for protecting delicate skin from the sun and remaining indoors to preserve youthful appearance. The Two-fer kicker: cover up also earns points with Almighty Allah.

Because I am the sister of the original “Church Lady” with whom communication is sometimes difficult owing to her extreme mix of Bush Worship and Right To Life intensity, I receive emails that re-acquaint me with my origins in Catholic teaching. A Scholar whom I encountered often enough during my college years, Thomas Aquinas, was featured in her most recent send which linked me to the observation of “Saint” Thomas about Islam.

The portly author of many essays about religious subjects, his focus was brought to the issues preachers and missionaries bound for the region should discuss to compare the principles of Christianity with Islam. I thought that the most pivotal point he makes was this: Muhammad based his appeal to prospective followers on promises of carnal pleasure. Unlike the Spiritual Appeal of the teachings of Jesus Christ, who treated women with respect, The Prophet of Allah couldn’t think beyond his penis. Evangelical Efforts that certify that the “Gates of Heaven” are little more than a euphemism for sex are pretty much a red flag for anybody wondering where this “god” is coming from. Come On, Muhammad! Now that I think about it, and I try not to give this too much of my attention (see above) – it really clears the mystique of Jihad and its appeal to males. How then, can this country NOT be bat shit CRAZY?

If you have survived having loved or lived in the presence of a pathological liar, built your life around someone incapable of telling you anything of verifiable substance, and if you have spent most of your time at home, isolated from social and professional interaction, you know what’s going down. Just a matter of Time before the whole illusion produced by a liar is dispelled by a pivotal incident. Women Intuit. Except that she be utterly Jammin’ over the fantasy (a la Obama fanatics) a female will arrive at a moment in time where nothing adds up and being a Fool has less value than providing for her children.

When this happens, a turn-around in a Woman’s psyche slams her mind closed to any appeal from such influence that would make her the victim of the liar, and more frustrating than everything else combined, is the portion of her life squandered on anybody thus unworthy.

Aquinas suggests that the promise of a reward of sexual intimacy for a servant of Allah predisposes followers to focus on body rather than Spirit. It makes sense that the young men of this Society are unable to look within for the courage and inspiration that would unleash their ability to lead their lives. It confounds me that any males could have eluded the influence of such subordinating notions imposed violently by the Crusader. I can also understand a great deal better, why the Crusades came about. It does – even to this day – appear to be a War of Religious nature.

Today, I understand to a deeper level of Faith, that those Muslims who have transcended the Prophet’s appeal to the lower instincts of young men are, indeed, equipped to provide the drastically needed mentorship for those who are seduced by the Jihadist appeal. I am grateful to have this reminder from my past education because it provides my wavering Spirit with the same levelling source of Center that makes my faith in Peace Abiding Men of Good Will solid state at this level. The Guys who have survived this instability are treasures to be supported and viewed as prisms through whom we will better understand the threat to our Homeland.

I have already responded to the mind-set that Peter King’s hearings will unearth many jewels in this community of survivors and our work at this site with those who have endured oppression in their homes should now make a space in our circle for those brave souls of the Islamic Faith who found their center and acquired beatific vision in control over the undertow of the Flesh.

I’m working through with Faith and in my finite mind, I accept that additional layers of understanding will bring me to a level of peace that enhances my ability to communicate effectively to those confronting threats to their persons.

Accountability – The Rhetoric Of The Inconsequential Chooser

Princess Dream

This weekend, I will walk with my Congressman in the Saint Patrick’s Day Parade in Pittsburgh. The last time I made this “trek” was in the company of candidate, Hillary Clinton, Catherine Baker Knoll and the Secret Service. I learned about “talent management” and in my Scanner, addended my existing skills in “crowd control.” Ever watch the little girls in the marching units of Americana lore, bedazzled, spangled and pink, cradling the batons they are learning to twirl? Adult coaches and chaperones contain and account for the little ones (some barely three years old) by encircling them with lengrhs of rope, worked, not unlike marionette strings, to encourage the progress of the talent towards the reviewing stand, their safety abetted.

The crowds cheering Hillary that March morning assured us that Americans would make the responsible choice in the interest of those little girls, and from a spirited campaign, a historic candidacy would result. And
So

It

Was …

that Pittsburghers’ preferences were trumped by their “children” to whom the “Hope” was sold wholesale, with zero connection to reason. We get news almost daily, about how the advisors around Obama churn madly to deny us our choice. We ask for Women in leadership, and they let us have Nancy Pelosi, so resolutely willful that the democratic caucus is incapable of replacing her, despite the flat-BANG! turn over from majorities in the House, Senate and White House to a defeat in the State Houses so devastating as to reveal that virtually the entire country has turned on the Democrats. Throughout two years of Obama’s administration, the Axlerod logic has flipped the bird to the citizens and played games with political tactics disconnected from the issues, challenges and realities facing Americans. The honor of being the first Woman to serve as Speaker of the House is almost secondary – judging from Pelosi’s prosecution of the 111th – to weilding the “ropes” circling the freshman class swept into the Majority in 2008. From a seat in my Congressman’s office to watch the inauguration of Pelosi, I observed her bringing the children and grandchildren, her own and those of members, to the Speaker’s Stand in celebration of the Change a Woman Speaker would hallmark. The first 100 Days grandiose proclaimations righting the ship, “draining the swamp” to rid the country of the corrupt Republican Culture.

Her “Parade Style,” begun with a promising step, degenerated utterly with her irresponsible CHOICE to cultivate a “counter-culture” of restricted debate, hand-cuffing those Republicans who survived re-election and commandeering the votes of Democrats with quid-pro-quo trade-outs to embellish her control over the Democratic Caucus. I guess we expected more of a matenal concern for the country than a cynical power play to consolidate her grip on the reigns that kept the Democrats marching by the Reviewing Stand to the Bold Progressive’s Beat. Nancy’s district enjoys phenomenal property values. San Francisco style liberalism made it a magnet for those whose off-beat lifestyles met with rejection in middle America. 434 other Congressional Districts were suddenly nullified by a Progressive Replacement “Golden Rule” equating money with power to the exclusion of any other Force. Foolish. Naughty, Naughty, Nancy. Your Co-Equal Power Wielders expected something much different. Women who represent the Majority had something else in mind by way of leadership from you.

Imagine our shock that you and another “Sister” Oprah Winfrey, suddenly became incommunicado having hooked up with “the One” who changed your brains, not your life. All that aside, nonetheless, we understand, girlfriend. The guy who plays us gets away with it as long as the romance is good, the jewelry gifts arrive regularly and we can brag that passion is sustained. What we don’t get is the Big Sister Act, cutting us out of the Will, manipulating the Family dynamic with something more like Cinderella’s Step Mother Maneuvers.

We at the Majority United make the call on our Sisters, Daughters, etc… but we failed to factor in that Omen: The Step Sister heritage. Along with those Twirl lessons, we learned Fairy Tale Tradition. For every Princess in Waiting, there’s at least one jealous female, associated by marriage of convenience, to make the story compelling. Heroines come and go, but Erica Kane reigned for decades as the grain of sand that irritated oysters enough to salve irritation into pearls.
