Rocker’s Vacation Plans

Posted by RightWingRocker on July 29, 2006

Time for a brief breather.

I’ll be trekking away to an undisclosed location in Pennsylvania for the next couple days.

In the meantime, please refresh yourselves onthe great stuff in the RWRchives, and as always, the New FedeRWRalism (all in the left sidebar).

Also make sure Freder is kept in his place over at rightwingnews.com‘s comment areas.

My audio address has also been recently updated, so check that out, too.

I should be back sometime Tuesday or Wednesday.

ArmyBryan Weighs In

Posted by RightWingRocker on July 28, 2006

This comment came in this morning from the RWRepublic’s Honorary-Soldier-at-Large …

Dude, Freder is such a yutz. No amount of information will change his “reality-based” mind. It’s like “I’ve made up my mind, don’t confuse me with the facts” so don’t really expect him to actually admit he is wrong, which he is. Basra is not living under Sharia, and the reason that we can shift more troops into Baghdad is two-fold. First, the area that encompasses the Baghdad zone has almost quadrupled in size, so units that used to be in a different area are now considered to be part of MND-Baghdad. Second, and more to the point of contention, is that we have been handing over other provinces to the Iraqi security forces, which enables us to use our troops more effectively, in the areas where they will do the most good. Anyway, I will be out of the loop for awhile. I have to make a trip to S. Korea for the next couple of months.

PS. Enjoy the steak dinner, if you can pry it out of Freder.

armybryan 07.28.06 – 9:55 am #

Though the steak dinner was never ultimately agreed upon, there are only a few weeks until August 19, the date by which Freder says Iraq will be in the throes of an all-out civil war, and that we will be forced to cut and run with our tails between our legs. This victory for the terrorists will supposedly be so decisive that there will be no way to blame the libs/MSM, and there will be no way to describe it any other way. Our military and those of us who support them will be forced to concede the loss.

According to Bryan, however, whose duties include reviewing daily intelligence reports from Iraq (and who was on the ground in Iraq at the time of the wager), there is no sign of this happening, especially within the next three weeks.

Do I expect Freder to admit that he was wrong? Of course not. His version of “reality” is nothing more than whatever the socialists, leftwads, and Bush-haters decide to fill his head with that day. Actual facts mean nothing to him, unless they come from the enemy, as evidenced by his use of an anti-US site to support a questionable claim over at RWN yesterday.

At the time of this posting, he still hasn’t responded to my invitation to “correct the record” with regard to Hawkins’ interview with an actual Iraqi citizen who has lived through everything that has happened there.

I wonder why he has no problem telling our soldiers on the groud what is happening right in front of them but can’t do the same with an Iraqi civilian. It’s not like it takes any more balls.


Update 7/29: If there were, in fact, a full-scale all-out civil war in Iraq, you would think there would be something about it on CENTCOM’s website. There isn’t. Here’s a search on the words “Civil War” from CENTCOM’s website. It comes up completely dry. Only three weeks to go, Freder.

Freder Update

Posted by RightWingRocker on July 27, 2006

Well, time is winding down on the one-year anniversary of Freder_Frederson putting his foot in his mouth last August.

I came across His Idiocy today over at RWN (comment thread here) and, of course, he was spouting his usual anti-Bush/pro-socialist stuff that reveals every time what a fool he is. He even used an anti-Israel site to back up one of his stupidities, then tried to challenge everyone when they laughed at him.

Of course, I prefer to bury these sorry excuses for arguments rather than simply laugh at them (at least most of the time).

Well, you all talk tough, but are any of you willing to make the sacrifices necessary to actually achieve the goals you seek? What you are implying is full-scale war in the middle-east including destroying countries that we traditionally consider our allies (e.g., Jordan and Saudi Arabia) along with Iran and Syria.

To do that we are going to have to put up with severe hardships including extreme shortages of gasoline, mandatory rationing and high prices. We are also going to need a much bigger military and much higher defense spending. That means higher taxes and if we can’t get enough volunteers, a draft.

We’re also going to have to do it totally alone. Even our good friends the Australians and the British are going to turn their backs on us. Also, when and if American soldiers are captured on the battlefield or American politicians leave the country they will probably face international war crimes trials since no one will recognize the exemptions to the ICC we have negotiated.

by Freder_Frederson on 2006-07-27 11:03:11

A lot of people stepped up to the plate to take this one on. Here’s my response:

First of all, I can’t remember every really considering Jordan or Saudi Arabia “allies”, especially after 9/11. If Saudi Arabia were really our allies, they would have done a lot more to fight terrorism, especially given the majority of the 9/11 terrorists being their own nationals.

Extreme shortages of gasoline could easily be averted if enviro-nutjobs would back off and stop working to hinder the efforts of those who would get the oil we already know we have on our own soil. Most of them come from your side, Freder. Care to try and persuade? After all, we already have higher prices, especially on gasoline, to the point that rationing is already in place because of them. Higher taxes wouldn’t be necessary at all if the politicians in Washington, DC would simply repeal all the unconstitutional socialism of the last century and apply the difference to the military, which happens to be constitutional. Again, most of them come from your side.

The idea that the Brits and Aussies would turn their backs is pure speculation, but even if they did, it cannot be denied that this is a war that MUST be fought and won. The very cause of freedom in America and the world is threatened.

Oh by the way, Freder. Only 23 days to go…

by RightWngRocker on 2006-07-27 11:38:14

Notice the “invitation” to discuss our upcoming anniversary. Of course, he responded with his usual gloating-but-wrong crap.

Yeah well, looks like I’m somewhere between 1/2 and 2/3’s right. We are looking at a Shiite dominated government in Iraq (sympathetic to Hezbellah and not friendly to Israel, women’s rights are being severely curtailed and parts of the south–e.g., Basra–is operating under Sharia law) and I don’t know what other description you can use to describe the situation besides Civil War.

Now, as usual, I underestimated the sheer stubborness and refusal to face reality of the Bush administration. In the face of the deteriorating situation, they plow on as though nothing has changed and things are just fine. Troop levels remain where they are and they are not discussing any withdrawls. I think it is significant that they apparently can’t increase troop levels and are only shifting troops into Baghdad to quell the violence there rather than increasing the total number of troops in the country.
by Freder_Frederson on 2006-07-27 12:32:31

Can you say “delusional”? What a fucking moron. Things get better every day in Iraq, and he calls the situation “deteriorating”. Can a hard head get any harder? So I called him on the carpet with his own words.

You crack me up Freder. Let’s take a look at what we discussed, shall we?

One year from now Iraq will either be in a full scale civil war or have an Iranian friendly Shiite dominated theocracy. Our troops will be withdrawing or thrown out of the country and there will be no way for the administration to either claim that we have won, or you, as much as you may try, to blame the loss on the liberals and the MSM.

by Freder_Frederson on 2005-08-19 11:31:12

No full-scale civil war, Shi’ites are there, but not running the show to the point where no one gets a say, and quite frankly, the whole thing is pretty America-friendly, and since nothing has been lost, well it’s no different that Vietnam, except that we haven’t cut and run. The MSM and the Left are still trying to portray it that way, but unless there’s a big change in 23 days or less, confirmable by ArmyBryan or his designee, you have lost.

No surprise.

by RightWngRocker on 2006-07-27 12:40:28

And lose he will. Comments like this are proof that he has no clue. I wouldn’t be surprised to find out he gets his news from Al-the-Jizzeater. I did feel it important to credit a prediction from a comment Doncos made here at the RWRepublic.

However, I will yield that the winner in the discussion (the one being most right about the outcome) appears to be Doncos:

So it doesn’t really matter. Any outcome whatsoever will be twisted by Freder into something he “predicted” and it will be all our faults. This is the kind of BS that moved me to the right.

Doncos 08.25.05 – 12:05 pm

Good call, man.

by RightWngRocker on 2006-07-27 12:42:25

Big thanks go out to Kingfisher for kind words when he thought I had shut Freder up for good, but even a fool would know better (as did both Kingfisher and I, of course).

Nah, Kingfisher – see my quote from Doncos.

He’s probably just trolling for a “neutral” confirmation of his idiocy.

by RightWngRocker on 2006-07-27 12:55:00

He actually did something along those lines in dealing with another comment, which I found hilarious. He even used the Chickenhawk Slur. I guess he forgot to read Jeff Jacoby this week.

There were some really revealing comments from Freder about how great socialism is, but I made sure I took care of those. I think I basically nailed it with these (patting self on back)…

We wouldn’t have rural electrification or phone service, nuclear power, most of the hydropower in the west, or paved roads in most of the country if it wasn’t for the government. (Freder)

Yes we would.

Socialists really piss me off when they do this. they claim that since the government has been doing something (often something it shouldn’t), that that’s the only way it will ever happen.


by RightWngRocker on 2006-07-27 16:24:40

It’s simply because the risk and expense of a space program is too great to be borne by private industry. (Freder)

If it’s too great a risk for private industry, who’s the knucklehead that decided it’s not too great a risk for the government? (spelling error corrected)

by RightWngRocker on 2006-07-27 16:28:30

Anyway, Freder is toast on the 19th. I will be out of town, but will post on the matter sometime in the days before or after. Confirmation of the REAL situation in Iraq is expected from military sources, particularly ArmyBryan and those close to him.

Not only do I not expect to find Iraq in a “full-scale civil war..”, but I actually expect to be told that things are better on August 19, 2006 than they were on August 19, 2005. But maybe that’s just my pie-in-the-sky dreaming … Nah. I think not.

A Victory for Marriage … and the Constitution

Posted by RightWingRocker on July 27, 2006

The Washington Supreme Court ruled yesterday that laws in their state requiring (as do God and nature) that both genders be included in marriages (which may only include two people) do not violate the state’s constitution.

See, folks? This is exactly how it’s supposed to work. You want to bitch about a law, you challenge it in court. The court looks at your complaint, reads its constitution, and applies it. You get to appeal to a higher court if you dont like the decision. The Supreme Court is as far as you can go.

Quite frankly, I don’t give a crap one way or the other how the court ruled in this case, as long as the state’s constitution legitimately matches the decision. These matters need to be resolved at the State level, so that the process is as close to home as possible. We don’t need the politicians in Washington, DC getting involved in something the Constitution doesn’t authorize. It is good that this issue has been resolved by the State of Washington.

The SCOTUS would be wise to leave this one alone.

Hawkins on WMDs

Posted by RightWingRocker on July 25, 2006

John Hawkins has posted today about a recent Harris poll regarding WMDs, and the Washington Times’s take on it.

Hawkins is absolutely right to point out that this poll, which shows aincrease from 36% to 50% of respondents believing that Iraq had WMDs when we attacked them in 2003, that the news isn’t any rise in knowledge of the truth, but that this number isn’t 100%.

With Saddam Hussein having actually used WMDs on his own people, bragging and flaunting that fact in the process; with Saddam threatening to use WMDs on our own soldiers; with stockpiles of actual WMDs being found in Iraq since the invasion, the real news is that the MSM has, as usual, failed to do its job in reporting the news.

Wait. That’s not news.

The fact that only 50% of respondents polled were oblivious to the truth about WMD is a clear failure of the mainstream media, and is a large part of the reason the New Media has been so successful. It’s not the fault of the American people that these things are not in line with the MSM’s political agenda.

Report the damned news already!


Update 7/27: Confirmation that large amounts of WMD were shipped to Syria from Baghdad in trucks.

Ol’ BC Breaks out the ClueBat

Posted by RightWingRocker on July 21, 2006

The RWRmy is a comfy place for those who wield the ClueBat in the RWRepublic’s comment area from time to time on idiot Leftards who desperately need it. HS Ol’BC posted on Saturday regarding some issues with these people, and dealt appropriately with some backtalk from a liberidiot (calling conservatives “whiners”) with the following:

The libs aren’t against socialism, communism, etc. So, naturally they aren’t vocally opposing such things. That is what most liberals are for (or at least programs that encourage such things). Most conservatives are for less government intervention into our lives, less stealing by the government in the form of taxes and increased opportunity for all people. The libs on the other hand profess just the opposite by their actions. They want to keep the poor in their place by keeping them dependent on government stipends and handouts and discouraging any attempt to improve oneself. The MSM is markedly in the corner of the left so it probably seems at first glance as you described it, but those in the center or on the right must address the socialistic plans of the left in a negative way or it would get rammed right on the people of this country. The lefts very plans stifle any work ethic which is why Russia’s rapid economic growth has not been greater. They have a whole generation of people (or more) who don’t know how to and never had to work.

Of course, the victim of this ClueBatting is a hard-head with a cause, so I doubt the message will really get through.

It’s important to drive home the fact that the things the liberals are for (socialism, communism, etc.) are BAD FOR AMERICA. Not only that, there is no Constitutional justification for it in at least most cases. I’ve chronicled repeatedly the unconstitutionality of the Left’s “causes” here on this blog. Thanks, Ol’ BC for standing up for what’s right and American!

Coulter is Wrong

Posted by RightWingRocker on July 20, 2006

… Well on one point.

She posted an awesome article yesterday about the Democrats’ lack of will to fight.

Ann is spot on through most of her article, but leaves out something very important: The Democrats will fight to the death in defending their socialist agenda here at home.

This, of course, is pathetic. For these people, forcing the evils of socialism on Americans is more important than protecting them from the real dangers of terrorism, Islamo-fascism, and of socialism itself.

This kind of thing pisses me off so much I can’t even rant about it.

Wide Awakes Radio has inspired me.

However, I don’t have the technology to get into doing a regular broadcast, and work and touring could also pose a problem.

What I have decided to do is put together, as often as possible, an audio address, which can be accessed in the left sidebar. I’ll update it whenever I feel like it, and probably post notice in the current post when I do.

Click here to enjoy my first audio address.

Hope you enjoy!

Brad Stine

Posted by RightWingRocker on July 11, 2006

My hat has to come off today to ABC’s NightLine and Terry Moran.

Last night, as I was bringing my dog in from a late-night excursion, a piece on conservative comedian Brad Stine was in progress. I must have come to it early, because it ran pretty long from the point where I started watching.

I’m not sure if anything important was left out of the piece, as I’ve learned not to trust the networks or the MSM, but I felt pretty comfortable about the presentation, and I came away with some pretty serious enthusiam for the guy – so much so, that I came online looking to see what kind of merchandise he had out … guess what I found? A FAROOKIN’ BLOG!!*

Well, in addition to spending some time on his comedy website, I made sure I spent some time checking out his blog, which I immediately blogRWRolled, of course. He doesn’t blog all that often, but the stuff that’s up there is really good. I left him a comment there, and do hope that we’ll see him here at the RWRepublic from time to time – or maybe even more.

So definitely check out both sites and support Brad when and where you can. I will be doing just that.


* “FAROOKIN'” is from the lexicon of Parkway Rest Stop (for full disclosure).

Benny Sticks it to the Socialists

Posted by RightWingRocker on July 10, 2006

TownHall’s Jennifer Roback-Morse was in Valencia, Spain this past weekend, and witnessed Pope Benedict XVI’s comments defending marriage and the family. These comments brought thunderous applause from a nation whose socialist government had recently imposed gay marriage, easier divorce, and less parental control of education upon its largely Catholic citizenry.

Of course, she had to get the text of his speech from the Vatican website due to possible jamming of the English translation.

Gotta hand it to those socialists. When they want something, they do everything they can to stop anyone or anything that could get in their way, even if it means squashing a world leader’s right to be heard by his audience.

Nice job, assholes. Too bad for you, we know how to use a search engine. Did you really think we were stupid enough to just accept that our reporters couldn’t hear the translation? We can read, you know. I wonder what you could have found so offensive that it had to be jammed? Maybe this?

None of us gave ourselves life or singlehandedly learned how to live. All of us received from others both life itself and its basic truths, and we have been called to attain perfection in relationship and loving communion with others. The family, founded on indissoluble marriage between a man and a woman, is the expression of this relational, filial and communal aspect of life. It is the setting where men and women are enabled to be born with dignity, and to grow and develop in an integral manner.

Once children are born, through their relationship with their parents they begin to share in a family tradition with even older roots. Together with the gift of life, they receive a whole patrimony of experience. Parents have the right and the inalienable duty to transmit this heritage to their children: to help them find their own identity, to initiate them to the life of society, to foster the responsible exercise of their moral freedom and their ability to love on the basis of their having been loved and, above all, to enable them to encounter God. Children experience human growth and maturity to the extent that they trustingly accept this heritage and training which they gradually make their own. They are thus enabled to make a personal synthesis between what has been passed on and what is new, a synthesis that every individual and generation is called to make.

Or this?

At the origin of every man and woman, and thus in all human fatherhood and motherhood, we find God the Creator. For this reason, married couples must accept the child born to them, not simply as theirs alone, but also as a child of God, loved for his or her own sake and called to be a son or daughter of God. What is more: each generation, all parenthood and every family has its origin in God, who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Emphasis mine. Why? Because I’m pro-life? No. Because those are the exact words a priest used to comfort a 20-year old young lady who had come down with that awful disease that liberals so despise … pregnancy. Through her tears of shame, he told her to stand proudly at her wedding and be happy. There would be no need for shame. After all, she carried within her a child of God.

That young lady was my mother. That child of God was me. I can’t think of anyone, save for my father, who is more grateful and proud that my mother made the right decision in marrying my father and bringing me into this world. Still, having Pope Benedict use the exact same words that priest used to comfort my mother 39 years ago brought tears to my eyes. It was a moment of pure inspiration.

Anyway, back to the Pope and his teachings, which were so evil the Spanish socialists sought to jam the translation:

As the years pass, this gift of God which the parents have helped set before the eyes of the little ones will also need to be cultivated with wisdom and gentleness, in order to instill in them a capacity for discernment. Thus, with the constant witness of the their parents’ conjugal love, permeated with a living faith, and with the loving accompaniment of the Christian community, children will be helped better to appropriate the gift of their faith, to discover the deepest meaning of their own lives and to respond with joy and gratitude.

Wow … really damaging stuff.

I did find this interesting, though:

In contemporary culture, we often see an excessive exaltation of the freedom of the individual as an autonomous subject, as if we were self-created and self-sufficient, apart from our relationship with others and our responsibilities in their regard. Attempts are being made to organize the life of society on the basis of subjective and ephemeral desires alone, with no reference to objective, prior truths such as the dignity of each human being and his inalienable rights and duties, which every social group is called to serve.

This starts out looking like a dig on individualism, but Benny brings it together by invoking the inalienable rights, and showing that we must accomplish our duties as individuals. It winds up being a perfect dig on socialism.

Still, the most productive things the Pope had to say were in support of marriage.

To help us advance along the path of human maturity, the Church teaches us to respect and foster the marvellous reality of the indissoluble marriage between man and woman which is also the origin of the family. To recognize and assist this institution is one of the greatest services which can be rendered nowadays to the common good and to the authentic development of individuals and societies, as well as the best means of ensuring the dignity, equality and true freedom of the human person.

Ok, idiots. Jam the signal for our translation if you wish (or just hand out cheap equipment, if that’s your excuse), but we Americans will get to the truth whether you like it or not.

Marriage is among the oldest of humankind’s institutions and traditions. People the world over have participated in it and like it the way it has been practiced for these several thousand years. Sure, nobodys perfect, and sometimes people falter, but those aren’t reasons to make divorce easier or to change the meaning of marriage altogether.

This has been a moment of pride in this Pope, and a moment of continued disgust with socialist idiots. Please comment accordingly.

What Kind of Rocker

You Are a Glam Rocker!

You put the “show” in rock show with your larger than life self.
No doubt, you are all about making good music…
But what really gets you going is having an over the top show.
Glitter, costumes, and wild hair are your thing – with some rock thrown in!

Oh, so true, if I only had enough hair to do the “wild hair” thing. Does a sharp black fedora or a summer panama work? Oh, and can I throw in a little soul/funk/R&B while we’re at it?

Franklin on Socialism

Posted by RightWingRocker on July 9, 2006

I came across this quote over at Hawkins’ site today:

“I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.” — Ben Franklin, 1766

This brought back memories of the early days of the RWRepublic, when I locked horns with a Moonbat blogger over 17th century socialism in the colonies and the Founding Fathers’ efforts to keep it out of their great country. I showed him the actual writings of Governor Bradford of Plymouth Colony, writings the Founders would have definitely known.

This quote by Franklin is more proof positive of the evil nature of socialism, the superiority of freedom and capitalism to all other “systems”, and the undeniable fact that the founders were all too aware of this. Pride in what the founders did for us is significantly magnified when it becomes understood that they used their knowledge, experience, and wisdom for the betterment of all. Assembling so many great minds in one place could only have been accomplished by God.

Rudy for President?

Posted by RightWingRocker on July 9, 2006

Probably not.

On the other hand, it defintiely wouldn’t be the end of the world. Quite frankly, it would be infinitely better than a Hitlery presidency (or any Donk, for that matter). Rudy proved himself a selfless leader many times over before 9/11, and then repeated the task in the wake of that tragic day. Rudy’s run and subsequent presidency would serve as a wake-up call for many Americans who have forgotten the events of that day, and the perpetrators who brought it upon us.

The downside? Rudy Giuliani holds some very disturbing positions, particularly some involving the Second Amendment. He would definitely have to be kept in check by the people on these issues.

On the whole, a law-and-order type of guy who has already proven himself in a time of major crisis would be a huge asset, particularly given the wartime role he would have to play. He would be a marvelous commander-in-chief with the kind of resolve that would have our current president in awe. If he is on the November ballot, I will vote for him. However, I will advocate for more conservative candidates until that is the case.

Why Not?

Posted by RightWingRocker on July 8, 2006

It seems the Republicans are having trouble replacing Tom DeLay on the ballot in Texas, despite a law that seems to allow it.

Why not? The Donks in New Jersey did the same thing not too long ago, replacing Bob Toricelli with Frank Lautenberg – and there wasn’t even a law allowing it. Of course, the courts obliged. No sense in taking chances with your life.

However, if the US Supreme Court can cite the laws of other countries in making decisions, why should it not follow that a state like Texas could cite the law of another state in the same manner? Hmm?

I say Leave DeLay on the ballot and get him elected. His so-called “legal troubles” are a joke anyway, and it would show the Donks in Texas a thing or two. Not to mention the laughs it would get here at the RWRepublic.
