HOLDER AND VIGNALI
Re: The Prowler’s Beg Your Pardongate:
I see the Prowler is reporting Holder urging Obama to include
Mayorkas on his transition.
Here is possibly the most detailed account you will find of
Pardongate as it pertained to convicted drug trafficker Carlos
Vignali, and Alejandro Mayorkas’ role in a grant of clemency by
President Clinton. By definition, Holder would have had to
approve that grant (which Mayorkas lobbied for), just as he
approved the pardon for Marc Rich.

The Clinton staffer that won’t be invited back to the White
House is Ms. Lewinsky. The American taxpayer will assume the
position directly for President Obama.

Let’s assume that Obama has placed this reality as his most important when picking those who will work at his right side: The candidate must “worship” Obama, must think Obama is in fact the “savior” our country needs so badly. I refer the reader to the recent movie “3:10 to Yuma,” starring Russell Crowe et al. Note his immediate cohort in crime…the guy damn near steals the show, especially in his allegiance and meanness to all those who resist the will of his boss!
Imagine how the women in Obama’s life greet him when he comes home from work. They adore him. His mother adored him, grandmother too. The guy just loves to be adored! What happens when this adoration ceases? Or when another force comes into the picture diverting the supplicant from his duties?
Why, he gets the wrath of Obama. You don’t mess with Mr. Cool.
Now there are some really tough streets in Chicago where one looks all around as he struts his stuff walking. I don’t know if Mr. Cool ever walked such streets alone. I do know on the world stage there are some really tough guys who just for chuckles like to smash the faces of those who get close enough.
What happens when the pretty face of Obama gets touched? Do we need to watch him play a pickup game of basketball to get an idea? Or will it show up when he tries to vote “present” for some important item?
Will he invoke the wrath of a god to those who trespass against “his will” or “vision” like I imagine he will? Will this Shakespeare of politics wannabe terminate all with his sweet words of condemnation?
Note the dead bodies at the end of “3:10 to Yuma.” Crowe gets on the train…alone! Good guys and bad guys lay dead all around.
Is it time to ask Michael Corleone for his perspective? How about Alexander the Great? Judah Ben Hur?
The show is about to start, please be seated…and turn off your

Re: Lisa Fabrizio’s Offensive Conservatives:
I must disagree with Ms. Fabrizio about the Catholic Bishops closing the Catholic hospitals if they are required to perform abortions. There is a priest in South Carolina who spoke out against Catholic citizens who voted for Obama thereby tacitly supporting Obama’s stand on abortion — in addition to supporting abortion itself. The priest went further and said that those Catholics should seek absolution for their sin. What happened?
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
