BEFORE HAWAII WAS A STATE!
A joke I caught on Twitter, which would mean that Obama would have been truly without American citizenship. It think the idea has merit! It seems that President Obama had a complete toddler-style tantrum after being schooled by Benjamin Netanyahu about the real meaning of the 1967 borders (via Gateway Pundit): OBAMA SCREAMS AT STAFF: “What the F**k Was That?” After Netanyahu Meeting
The essence of the president’s rage and embarrassment can best be summed up with him yelling out very loudly, “What the f-ck was that!?” That phrase was apparently repeated a number of times in the span of about five minutes, a time period in which Obama’s voice became “louder and louder” and culminating in Obama exclaiming, “Never again! Do you understand me? Never again!” Any response by Bill Daley back to the president, if given, was not overheard.
Indeed, never again.
Dear Readers: The Young Prince is celebrating his first day of summer vacation. So, I am taking a small break from profit-making activities to share some links, highlight some blogs, and draw your attention to some news that may be overlooked.
First, one of my favorites is Anna’s Clue Tank, which has kindly linked to my golden punditry several times. The site features snippets of history, especially related to the military. Today’s post is a great read: Liberty Belle Crashes — The population of B-17 Flying Fortress bombers was reduced by one today due to a crash outside Chicago. A plane made famous in movies like Memphis Belle and 12 O’Clock High, there are few of the thousands built left. ACT put be onto this humorous bumper sticker:
I wanted to give a shout-out to BizzyBlog, who had more news on the President: Obama Florida Fundraiser Over Half-Empty; Only the Politico and ABC Blogs Notice. I caught this report last night — aisles and aisles were completely empty, and the tickets were $44 each!
I have been very busy working with a Conservatives4Palin Project — documenting Democratic voter support for Palin. One email I came across captures some of my feelings as a Palin supporter:
Sent: Tuesday, April 08, 2008 4:29 PM
To: Governor Sarah Palin (GOV sponsored)
Governor Sarah. I remember back when I was still working,.. and a real good friend of mine named Don Graber, told me that you might make a real good governor. Now me being a Jay Hammond democrat most all my adult life, and you being a republican, ..well I had to think about what Don said. When you did run against the previous governor, and after listening to you, and learning about you, well I joined the rest of most of the folks in Alaska and voted for you. I’m glad I did. I know they are too. You have done more for this state than anyone else since Jay Hammond. I hope you realize what you have helped accomplish for
Alaska. I think you do. I just want to thank you for myself, and future generations of Alaskans, for your faith in Alaska and its people. You have carved your name into Alaskan history… and I’m so glad to have been here as it unfolds. History is being made. Again Sarah,.. thank you.
When I have a compendium of similar emails, I will share them with you all.
My feelings on the GOP Presidential Debate? I am underwhelmed — and concerned that the GOP establishment is promoting the tag-team of Romney and Bachmann as the “winners”. The only good thing that came out of this exercise is that everyone focused their firepower on Obama. The CNN debate host was absolutely odious; however, what did these Republicans think when they agreed to having CNN host this soiree.
Tammy Bruce put out a piece in Big Government that I think is essential reading and speaks to some of my debate concerns: WHY SARAH MUST RUN IN 2012.
Why? Without Palin in the race a massive segment of the GOP base—Tea Party patriots and other independent conservatives—will find themselves once again with the prospect of choosing from a manipulated field of Next-In-Line GOP establishment liberals.
And make no mistake—that is exactly who will prevail. Despite the desperate and not surprisingly shallow belief by the boys in control of the GOP, Palin cannot be replaced by another woman, or another Tea Party supporter, or another Brunette (no matter how much they think a Stalking Horse will split the Tea Party vote). Palin’s impact is unique, significant and deep. Her influence rests on background, experience, legitimacy and most important of all—trust. These are the reasons why Palin matters, the same reasons why the GOP machine appropriately sees her, and no one else, as an existential threat to their status quo.
Indeed. And if Palin is unfairly trashed as “unserious” or “unqualified” during the GOP primary proves, especially when considering all the links and snippets I provided today, then as a Tea Party activist, all my monies and energies go to OPERATION COUNTERWEIGHT.
I already detest the fact New Mexico’s former Governor, Gary Johnson, was not accorded a podium and a chance to make his case (B-Daddy has a solid review on Johnson). I prefer him to Ron Paul and think he is more highly qualified than the Texas Congressman.
To end this post on another joke: OF COURSE WEINER NEEDED A TOWEL — HE WAS BUSY DRAINING THE SWAMP.

W.C. Varones: Treasury whines about cost of Ron Paul’s proposed Fort Knox audit — $15 million??? Are you kidding me??? The Fed is printing $2.5 billion a day. That’s less than nine minutes of Fed printing. The Federal government spends $3.5 trillion a year. $15 million is less than a minute and a half of government spending. Obama’s Porkulus was $800 billion. $15 million is less than 0.002% of Porkulus.
Beers with Demo: Not getting what we’re paying for… More bad news on the green technology front. Turns out those electric cars you aren’t quite ready to shell out $41,000 for aren’t quite as green as people would like you to think.
Shane Atwell: Movie: Burzynski; This movie is available for free viewing this weekend, June 11-13 (2011). It tells the story of Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski and his decades of research on some simple molecules called antineoplastons. He has achieved some impressive results in uncontrolled trials. His therapies are promising, but haven’t been tested in rigorous trials. That is part of the story. The other part of the story is the relentless attacks on Dr. Burzynski by the Texas Medical Board, the NCI and the FDA. All of these attacks ultimately came from the FDA, which cannot abide a new medical treatment developed by an individual.
(MUT Note: I think there is an evolution in entertainment occurring, so that Americans will have access to films that would normally be ignored by the elites. Very exciting).

Lorraine Yapps Cohen: The point of panic is now.Okay, now I’m really worried. The market is in free fall. I’ve seen dips described as crashes, even called some of them that myself. But the debt default in Greece prompted local panic. In my San Diego house, at least.
