Mr. Sulu pilots the Enterprise out of the closet

If you are subjected to the term “Captain’s log” enough times, something like this is bound to happen.

In the forthcoming issue of the gay magazine “Frontiers”, George Takei, who played “Mr. Sulu” on Star Trek, has his official coming out party, describing his life-long mission to explore strange new worlds and exploit The Federation’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.

According to Takei, it wasn’t really a “coming out” all at once but a slower process:

“It’s more like a long, long walk through what began as a narrow corridor that starts to widen.”

Say no more, George.


“He’s gay, Jim.”

Nominatus interruptus: Harriet Miers pulls out

It’s official: the Bush presidency is now under more stress than Ted Kennedy’s inseam.

The woman President Bush nominiated to replace Sandra Day O’Connor on the Supreme Court, Harriet Miers, has withdrawn her nomination. It’s hard to tell who’s laughing louder– Democrats, or conservatives like Buchanan, Kristol, Krauthammer, and others.

I wasn’t particularly one of the angry conservatives who popped up after Miers’ nomination, but I’m also not terribly disappointed that Miers withdrew, either. Much of that has to do with how this is all being explained.

Miers’ reasoning in her withdraw letter to the president, was that members of the Senate would have sought documents concerning her service in the White House, which Miers felt would violate attorney/client privilege.

What the Senate would want to see? These are the things that need to be thought of way in advance, and since I’m sure that neither Miers or anyone on Bush’s team are that incredibly short-sighted, I must conclude that this is only an excuse and not the reason for the withdrawl. But whether Miers jumped out the window or was pushed out doesn’t really matter now– either way, she’s down on the sidewalk.

Many conservatives are thrilled because they didn’t think Miers was A) qualified, and B) conservative enough to be on the Court. Liberals are no doubt ecstatic because this makes it look as though Bush picked a crony who couldn’t handle the heat, casting doubts on Bush’s decision-making abilities.

The Democrats House Minority Leader, Harry Reid, is blaming “radical right wing Republicans” for the Miers withdrawl. Reid seems upset, so maybe this isn’t such a bad thing after all.

Then there are conservatives like my friend Joseph Farah over at WorldNetDaily, who predicted (“guaranteed” more like) that Miers would withdrawl. This prediction was made on October 13th, but Farah’s reasoning for his assertion was an interesting one. This reasoning, however, falls victom to what I wrote about earlier, which is that the Senate digging into Miers’ White House and Texas dealings would have surely been planned for in advance by the Bush people… wouldn’t it?

Now the mad tinfoil-hatters are already out there, claiming that Bush intended for this to happen from the git-go. The claim is that Bush wanted a “middle of the road” type who would fail, establishing that he isn’t into ideological litmus tests, and then after the withdrawl of that person and everybody having let down their guard, picking a far right conservative justice. Not likely. There’s a better chance that John Kerry married Teresa for love and not money than there is of any of this being on purpose.

The next couple of days may finally grant the mainstream media their much sought after Bush-bashing trifecta: The 2,000th death in Iraq, the Miers nomination is withdrawn, and probably indictments of members of the Bush administration. Make no mistake– it’s like V-J Day for Dubya haters.

During the celebration, maybe Bush can slip by a really conservative justice. Hey, maybe he did do all that on purpose.

Hillary Clinton calls for increased gas taxes due to high profits by oil companies, oil companies now to try their hand at cattle futures

You can put a mask on B.S., but it’s always the smell that’s a dead giveaway.

Hillary Clinton is proposing a similar “mask” on taxes, proposing $20 billion in new taxes per year on oil companies that would be used to fund research on clean energy.

Wait, did I say “tax”. No, no– it’s not going to be a “tax”, it’s going to be a “fund”. Whew!

The woman whose personality warms you like a nude plunge in the North Atlantic has information about her idea for a “Strategic Energy Fund” on her senate website. Here’s the general idea:

The Strategic Energy Fund proposed by Senator Clinton would help consumers cope with spiraling energy costs; promote adoption of existing clean energy and conservation technologies; and stimulate research and investment by the private sector. Senator Clinton recommended assessing the oil companies an alternative energy development fee to be put into the new Fund if companies decided not to on their own reinvest in our energy future. The Fund could generate as much as $20 billion a year to help with home heating oil costs and develop new energy strategies.

To create increased incentives for domestic manufacturers to produce more efficient cars, Senator Clinton called for the doubling of the current tax credits for advanced technology vehicles, such as hybrids and clean diesel cars and trucks. In addition, she asked the federal government to show some leadership and set the goal that by 2010, Washington replaces its fleet of government vehicles with fuel efficient cars and trucks. Tax credits will act as incentives for domestic manufacturers to produce more efficient cars, but the incentive for oil companies to come up with cleaner or alternate energy sources is to raise taxes on them to the tune of $20 billion a year?

Senator Clinton has been pushing the Bush administration to investigate gas price gouging, but Hillary cites huge oil company profits as reason enough to confiscate an extra $20 billion a year from them, which will undoubtedly be passed along to you and me. Talk about “gouging”.

Hey, how about “The Cattle Futures Fund”? Huge profits have been made in that area of business as well. Right Hil?

Hillary continued:

We are a nation of innovation, and we can achieve the goal of less dependence on oil. The results will not just fuel our cars, they will fuel our economy and stimulate potentially millions of new jobs. The energy revolution can be as big and important as the industrial revolution and the explosion of the information age. And I believe that with the right investments and incentives, America can lead that revolution,” Senator Clinton stated.

The government had as much a part in the industrial revolution and the boom of the information age as termites did in the construction of The White House.

Remember, a government that isn’t cutting taxes is only making an economic problem worse. There is one universal truth– a politician complaining about a bad economy is like the Menendez brothers whining about being orphans.

You’ll know when Hillary’s really serious about doing something to cut down on poisonous emissions, because she’ll stop talking.

This just in:

Exxon Mobil Corp. announces the posting of a new record for profit. This could push more people onto Hillary’s bogus “fund” bandwagon (hybrid, clean burning, good mileage), where, if she’s successful, they can sit back and watch as gas prices go up even more.

Our Minuteman checks in

Here’s the latest from Ken down on the Texas/Mexico border:

Six weeks ago, I couldn’t spell “Minuteman”…now I ARE one! Sunburned, tired and full of good cheer, another day passes in the borderland. Today, my partner (Marvelous Marvin, from Dallas) and I spent our time dang-smack on the banks of the Rio Grande maybe 100 feet from Mexico.

A fairly trepidatious site, since folks have been shot at from south of the border, including the Border Patrol. Apparently, though, we are doing some good things. A Border Patrolman stopped to chat with us and, although I cannot identify him by name as per his request, he told us (off the record) that he and his fellow agents love us being there.

More interestingly, he also informed us that, since this operation began on October first, the normal illegal traffic has dropped to less than half! And we’re just a handful of fired-up, rompin’ stompin’ wildcat American citizens! But…you won’t see that in the media.

Here are a couple of pictures our man at the border sent in. Ken’s in the lonestar shirt, and the other person is Marvin. You really get an idea of the expanse of the area they’re dealing with.

It's "felt-up or raped by Bubba get in half-off" day at the Clinton Presidential Library

The Bill Clinton library unzipped its doors to let in Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey for a tour today. How apropos, though perhaps accidental, that this was done on “hump day”.

The library is on a 27 acre park, 21 of which are needed to house the Starr report.

The ladies’ tour began on the main level, where a timeline of Clinton’s presidency is displayed, wound through the “policy alcoves” and model of the Oval Office, and ended up out back by the dumpster in which Broaddrick and Willey’s reputations have been stuffed.

The women have also written a piece detailing exactly why they decided to take the tour of the library of the only president besides Kennedy to have ever been described as going “back, and to the left”. It’s certainly worth a read.

Countdown: White House braces for multiple indictments, Dems brace for multiple orgasms

The clock is ticking, the party hats and noisemakers are being distributed, and an extra crate of Jergens has been special ordered by congressional Democrats and the mainstream media.

It’s almost time for an inside-the-beltway yank-fest of epic proportions– well, at least since the DeLay indictment.

Rumor is that some high-level indictments could be coming Thursday, or even as early as today. Will it be Rove? Will it be Libby? Will it be anybody? Of course it will be. How can we expect to ever seek impeachment of Bush unless a nice little trail is created?

Rove, Scooter, and whoever else, need to remember the “DeLay lesson” of mugshots– smile.

Meanwhile, Special Council Patrick Fitzgerald is interviewing Valerie Plame’s neighbors to find out of any of them knew that she was a CIA agent. If her neighbors didn’t, it could be that some others did.

If it turns out that any of Plame’s collegues, friends, or neighbors knew about her “secret”, then she’ll end up as nothing more than a political version of a woman who wears a skimpy top but is shocked and angered when guys stare at her tits.

Back on track, what if Fitzgerald returns with no indictments? Fitz need not worry. Democrats will have no hard feelings, and they’ll still consider Fitzgerald a swingin’ kind of guy:

Your chance of being beaten to death by peace loving liberals is greater than ever

Aren’t conservatives were supposed to be the violent ones? Aren’t we the pro-war, pro capital punishment, knee-jerk fist wavers?

Then why have the past few years been chock full of more violent lib-speak than ever before?

This week, Al Franken’s been talking about the execution of President Bush, Karl Rove and Scooter Libby, and it’s become the stock material that he’s repeating from show to show.

In an Amazon.com video ad for Franken’s new book, the mock beating of a “conservative” is staged.

Oh sure, it’s only a “joke”, right? Of course it is, but isn’t it strange how the left’s sense of humor runs and hides whenever any political opponent tries their hand at being similarly “funny”.

It’s been going on for years, though.

It seems like only yesterday that the champion of non-violent liberalism, Alec Baldwin (inspiration for People for the Ethical Treatment of Alec Baldwin), said that Henry Hyde and the other House Managers, along with their families, should be stoned to death. Of course, Alec said it was “only a joke”. Hilarious.

Sometimes it even falls out of the “joke” category and into the just plain vitriolic bile section.

Peaceniks from Cindy Sheehan on down have implied, if not flat out said, that if the war is such a noble cause, then the Bush twins should be there dying like everybody else.

So, Casey Sheehan died “for nothing”, but if the Bush twins went and died, it would make what he died for more meaningful? That’s not anti-Bush or anti-war– it’s sadist. The common medical treatment for sadism is electric shock therapy, heavy meds, and a sound beating with a rubber hose. (Just a “joke” there)

Speaking of people I like to call “peace hawks”, Ward Churchill, leftist professor with hair that doubles as a national petrolium reserve, has said that U.S. military officers should be “fragged”, which basically means that their own troops should give them a hand grenade enema.

These pro-peace types can get pretty violent, can’t they? Not long ago, Churchill called people who died in the World Trade Centers “Little Eichmanns“. In other words, the capitalist pigs had it coming.

The list goes on, and so does the “joke”.

To the pro gun control Baldwin, there are only two instances where a gun should be used: 1) To make money in movies or 2) to protect vacuous Hollywood celebrities

"Catch me if you Ken": Exclusive border reports from our Texas Minuteman (updated)

Ken M., loyal reader, patriot, and Texan (pardon the redundancies) is heading off for another week with the Texas Minutemen to do a job that our government should be doing.

A few weeks ago, Ken graciously accepted my offer to write up some brief reports of his experiences for readers here. This is Ken’s email after heading off on another patrol “from si to shining si”. So far it’s been quiet, which can be attributed to the effectiveness of the effort.

Mucho tiredo, amigo. Spent 12 hours on the borderland peering through binoculars and my variable power spotting scope (20 to 60 power) but not a whole lot to report.

Illegal activity has slowed considerably, according to the Border Patrol, since the illegals don’t know where we are at any given time. Sort’a like the two Texas Rangers in the old days (true story) who stalled the Mexican Army at the Rio Grande because the Mexican army didn’t want to face even one of ’em!

There was a bit of Border Patrol activity on the Rio Grande levee, but we’re not sure what it was all about. One BP vehicle with two agents on board came by and the shot-gun rider leaned out the window and yelled, “We love you guys!” Politically, they’re not supposed to say that.

Two of our younger members (wearing body armor) climbed the levee (Mexico, 200 feet away) and saw a unit of the Mexican army on the opposite bank with a couple or three “potentials” up to their hips in the river. When Tim and Brian appeared, the opposite river-bank cleared.

I don’t want to make too much of a point of this because we don’t flaunt it in any way, and in fact, take pains to keep the “vigilante” aspect out of it; but we are well armed and we don’t care who knows it. Guns are kept out of sight, but easily accessable, and us “vigilantes” pray we don’t have to use ’em. More later.

Keep at ’em, Ken!
