Adding to the historic victory delivered by the American people this week, NBC provided a Friday surprise that gives us the topping on the cake.

“MSNBC has suspended star anchor Keith Olbermann following the news that he had donated to three Democratic candidates this election cycle.

“I became aware of Keith’s political contributions late last night. Mindful of NBC News policy and standards, I have suspended him indefinitely without pay,” MSNBC president Phil Griffin said in a statement.

Politico reported Friday that Olbermann had donated $2,400 each to Reps. Raul Grijalva and Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona, and to Kentucky Senate contender Jack Conway. While NBC News policy does not prohibit employees from donating to political candidates, it requires them to obtain prior approval from NBC News executives before doing so.

Etheridge Asks for Recount – Help Renee Ellmers Fight Him – Bumped

Renee Ellmers is the conservative constitutionalist seeking election in North Carolina.

Bob (Who are you?) Etheridge is her opponent. He is now demanding a recount even though Renee beat him fair and square at the polls.

This will now be an expensive, tedious fight. Please contribute to Renee and help her fight another Progressive/Marxist elitist Democrat who needs to let the electoral door hit him in the ass once and for all.

A call to all patriots is going across the blogosphere to ask for money to win this fight. They will need all the help they can get as the other side is well-funded to say the least.

We want all the votes counted accurately and properly and need to make sure that is what happens. We need to ensure this is a fair election, not another Al Franken nightmare.

Throw the Bums Out!

By: T F Stern
T F Stern’s Rantings

Have you seen the Geico Insurance commercial where Gunny R. Lee Ermey plays a psychiatrist listening to a whiney self absorbed loser? The reason it resonates is his no nonsense approach; tell it like it is and let the chips fall where they may.

I’d like to see Gunny Ermey as America’s Diplomat to the United Nations; not that anyone in the Obama administration would dare show the necessary spirit, bunch of cry babies! Obama is too busy apologizing for America’s exceptional history, for leading the world toward freedom and democracy. Maybe we should sit in the corner until our time-out session ends.

George Russell has an article on the Fox News website this morning, U.N. Human Rights Council to Take Aim at New Target: United States.

“The Obama administration has gone to elaborate lengths to consult with such groups in advance of the Geneva meeting. The State Department, has led delegations from a variety of government departments (including Labor, Homeland Security, Education and Justice) to consult with such groups in Chicago, Detroit, San Francisco, Harlem and Albuquerque, according to an official at State.”

If that isn’t enough, according to an article on WorldNetDaily, CAIR is suing Oklahoma for banning Islamic law. Americans can’t say anything which might upset the religion of peace.

“The Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations announced today it will file a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of a state ballot measure that bars judges from considering Islamic law in any ruling.”

The plain hard facts are fairly clear; Shariah and Shariah-based court decisions are incompatible within the framework of our republic. Many articles have been written explaining various opinions; some folks claiming we can all live together as one big happy family while others know better, those with their minds still working.

“In the west, in countries that have a sizable Muslim population, there have been calls for the Sharia to be adopted for the Muslim community. These calls should be vigorously opposed; the Sharia conflicts with many basic human values, such as equality before the law, that punishments should be commensurate with the crime, and that the law must be based on the will of the people. The Sharia as it developed in the first few centuries of Islam incorporated many pre-Islamic Middle-Eastern misogynist and tribal customs and traditions. The Sharia was developed not only from the Holy Quran but incorporates legal principles from other sects. We may ask how a law whose elements were first laid down over 1,000 years ago can possibly be relevant in the 21st century. The Sharia reflects the social and economic conditions at the time of the Abbasids and has become further and further out of touch with later social, economic, technological, cultural and moral developments. The principles of the Sharia are inimical to moral progress, humanity and civilized values.”

I’d love to hear Gunny Ermey’s take on what to do with the complaints from CAIR. My guess is it can’t be printed, at least not in its original form. They’d have to alter some of the well-chosen words; “jerk-weed” comes to mind. As for the United Nations thumbing their noses at us while they occupy a piece of prime real estate in New York City, “Throw the bums out!”
