Manny Ramirez an “Idiot” For Violating Baseball’s Drug Rules

May 7, 2009

Manny Ramirez as suspended for 50 games by Major League Baseball on Thursday, becoming the latest high-profile player ensnared in the sport’s drug scandals.

Ken Rosenthal said today that Dodger slugger Manny Ramirez “had to be an idiot” for violating baseball’s drug rules.

Rosenthal has served as lead field reporter for Major League Baseball on FOX since 2005.

From: RONALD BLUM, AP Baseball Writer 

The Los Angeles Dodgers star said he did not take steroids and was prescribed medication by a doctor that contained a banned substance. The commissioner’s office didn’t announce the specific violation by the 36-year-old outfielder, who apologized to the Dodgers and fans for “this whole situation.”

“Recently, I saw a physician for a personal health issue. He gave me a medication, not a steroid, which he thought was OK to give me,” Ramirez said in a statement issued by the players’ union.

“Unfortunately, the medication was banned under our drug policy. Under the policy that mistake is now my responsibility. I have been advised not to say anything more for now. I do want to say one other thing; I’ve taken and passed about 15 drug tests over the past five seasons.”

The suspension began Thursday and barring any postponements Ramriez will be able to return to the Dodgers — who now have the best record in baseball — for the July 3 game at San Diego. Ramirez will lose about $7.65 million of his $25 million salary.

Somebody Please Tell Specter, It’s Not About Who He Was, It’s About Who He Became

April 29, 2009

Again this morning at a carefully crafted photo op with Vice President Biden and President Obama gloating, Arlen Specter (D/R – Penna) repeated his mantra: “I am unwilling to have my twenty-nine year Senate record judged by the Republican primary voters of  Pennsylvania.”

Please someone stop this man before he says it again.

Tell him this is not about his resume of 29 years.  It is about his votes recently and especially one vote, for the stimulus, this year.  It is about lying and deceit.

Now Specter has joined the lying and deceitful Biden-Obama team.

Obama, for his part at this photo op, laucnhed into tackling a problem that can bring glory and praise to his administration without much controversey.  Obama is opposed to disease.  In this case, swine flue.

Never mind all that his contentious in our world and our government: wash your hands for 20 seconds and all will be well.

Beyond that: leave it to government.  Leave it to me.  The teleprompter says its so…..

Obama’s Too Many Dichotomies; Requires a Telepromter to Keep Himself Straight

April 29, 2009

There are just too many dichotomies in some people to allow me to swallow their mantra.

Obama objects to waterboarding, which may have saved America from new terror attacks.  Yet he happily agrees to the execution of three Somali pirates that only wanted money and had a record of never, ever harming a hostage in the past.

He says he is the great communicator and even told Harry Reid he has a “gift,” yet he needs a telepromter to get through the most simple White House pronouncement — and he has even gotten lost using the telepromter.

He wants to create jobs but rushes through a “stimulus” that Nancy Pelosi’s crowd crafted — oblivious or uncaring that much of it has nothing to do with jobs.

And he promises sweeping health care reform but has again given responsibility for the details to Pelosi….

He is against earmarks but signed a bill in secret to hide his own gross permission to allow their continued use….

He rose from a broken home and was raised by grandparents who could have easily turned their backs on him yet he endorses abortion: the gravest way any family can turn its back on a new or unwanted addition.

He represents all that’s great about America yet he grovels before all that blame America for much about everything.

While embracing allies he seems unaware that he is neglecting and causing worry for life-long allies like Israel.

He is all about ending carbon and then flies to Iowa on Earth Day in his carbon producing jet — then loses track of the jet fleet entirely and scares New Yorkers at a cost of tons of more carbon and close to $1 million dollars.

Time to photoshop.

On Earth Day Obama’s windmill plant with just 900 jobs had once produced washers and driers and 4,000 jobs — then one quarter of the Iowa town’s work force.

He visited Mexico and came home with no new plan for drug enforcement, border patrols, immigration or guns.  Yet the Mexican swine flu is cause for alarm.

Frankly, Mexican drug gangs kill more Americans each year than the Black Plague ever could….

He is a man of great faith, we are told, yet tolerated or never noticed Jeremiah Wright’s “God damn America” approach for years and then didn’t attend any church service from inauguration day until Easter…

He participated in the “papering over” of Jesus at Georgetown….

With Obama there are too many dichotomies for me which causes me worry.

He seems a pre-packaged Hollywood mirage we cannot belive in.  Scripted, with modern day cue cards and pollsters at the ready to help shape every move…

And with our economy we need a dose of reality: not the mirage that endless borrowing won’t cause problems later….

Our final dichotomy is the way the White House has handled day 100: is it a “Hallmark Moment” for meaningless greeting cards, as Robert Gibbs suggested, or is it a media circus as the White House seems to be making it?

Lost in Obama-Chavez Photo Ops: Drug Cartels Are ‘Number One’ Organized Crime Threat in U.S.

April 20, 2009

Just after President Barack Obama returned from Mexico and Latin America on Sunday — a trip blurred by Hugo Chavez and very bad White House stagecraft — senior Republicans are saying what the president may have said but nobody seemed to hear: the drug cartels are a really big problem….

Fox News

Mexican drug cartels have displaced the mafia as the “number one organized crime threat” in the United States, Sen. Joe Lieberman said Monday as his Senate committee heard testimony in Phoenix on border violence. 

Lieberman, an independent Democrat from Connecticut, and Sen. John McCain, a Republican on Lieberman’s panel, told FOX News that the United States needs to step up the fight against the drug cartels. The two senators were in Arizona, McCain’s home state, to hear from local officials on their advice for dealing with the drug-fueled violence many fear is spilling across the border. 

“This is literally a war,” said Lieberman, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. “They’re fighting for the turf.” 

Lieberman has said he plans to seek $380 million in additional funding to help law enforcement stop the flow of guns and drugs across the border. On Monday, he praised Mexican President Felipe Calderon’s campaign to fight the cartels, but said cartels have already taken root north of the border — driving a kidnapping surge in Phoenix and operating, he said, in at least 230 U.S. metropolitan areas. 

“The Mexican drug cartels have become the number one organized crime threat in America, displacing the mafia,” Lieberman told FOX News. 

McCain said the federal government needs to approve border states’ requests for more National Guard troops, something Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has said is under review. 

“I think we can have significant control of our border,” McCain said. “We should heed the governors who are having to fight this … all the time.” 

But Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer said the Department of Defense has effectively denied her request to send 250 additional National Guard troops to the Arizona-Mexico border to help authorities battle immigrant and drug smuggling and related violence. 

The governor told Lieberman’s committee meeting Monday that she was disappointed with the denial of her request to bring the number of troops at her state’s southern boundary up to 400. One hundred fifty troops are already there as part of a long-standing border assistance program. 

The Bush administration sent thousands of Guard troops to the border to perform support duties so that federal border authorities would be freed up to focus on border security. Bush’s buildup began in 2006 and ended last year.

Obama First 100 Days: What’s Been Lost and What’s Been Gained?

April 19, 2009

We are almost at the end of the first three months of the Obama Administration and it is getting time to ask what may have been gained and lost thus far.

As Mr. Obama is particularly active in his agenda, and he enjoys great popularity and a Democrat controlled congress, he may have more dramatic changes at this early stage in his presidency than in that of say Millard Fillmore.

From the L.A. Times:
Obama’s First 100 Days

Much of what has been gained and lost was on display this last week.

It seems that trust from a segment of the voting population was lost, as exhibited both by protesters in the streets at Tea Parties and the release of the Administration’s memo condemning them as right wing extremists.

Mr. Obama is a polarizing president — perhaps the most polarizing ever.

It seems to us that Pakistan may have been lost or is on a slippery slope and Isreal is not yet lost but certainly is showing signs of concern.

Many years of negotiating with North Korea has been lost….

But just think of all the new allies gained: Hugo Chavez, Daniel Ortega, the Taliban, Iran’s Ahmadinejad (maybe) and perhaps others.

Environmentalists are gaining big time but in Spain, for every climate change technology job gained two other jobs in the economy were lost….

Immigrants of all kinds are overjoyed that Nancy Pelosi called border agents and others enforcing immigration law “un-American,” except maybe my wife from Vietnam.  She’s legal and it took her 12 years to become a citizen.  She thinks Pelosi and Obama are the un-American ones….but who cares….

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of Calif. gestures during a news ...

The media is overjoyed at all this.  I mean, you can’t make this stuff up.  But there seems a lot of Obama fawning and unnecessary ugly attacks upon “the other side”….or just snide remarks and sexual inuendo…..

Obama Is President Disorder, Irony and Non Sequitur

April 17, 2009

I find it stragely ironic that the President of the United States that has asserted that he is the one ready for negotiations with any and all bad guys including Iran and North Korea ordered the death of three Somali pirates during a negotiation.  The President of the United States so shocked by the “torture” of Gitmo has decided to close the place entirely and to release  Bush-era memos about CIA interrogation techniques.

Why?

To trash Bush, which seems to be the Obama mantra thus far?

Politico reported:

A former top official in the administration of President George W. Bush called the publication of the memos “unbelievable.”

“It’s damaging because these are techniques that work, and by Obama’s action today, we are telling the terrorists what they are,” the official said. “We have laid it all out for our enemies. This is totally unnecessary. … Publicizing the techniques does grave damage to our national security by ensuring they can never be used again — even in a ticking-time- bomb scenario where thousands or even millions of American lives are at stake.”

“I don’t believe Obama would intentionally endanger the nation, so it must be that he thinks either 1. the previous administration, including the CIA professionals who have defended this program, is lying about its importance and effectiveness, or 2. he believes we are no longer really at war and no longer face the kind of grave threat to our national security this program has protected against.”

And then why, if such “torture” is so deplorable, does the same man execute without due process three Somali pirates?  With all due respect to Captain Phillips and the hero of the U.S. Navy who pulled the trigger, how many people have the pirates killed and harmed in the past?

The answer is zero.

Death by sniper’s bullet is clearly torture and the ultimate denial of rights, it seems to me.  What has happened at Gitmo?  I’m not nearly as certain….

I am confused and concerned about President Obama….

He seems to be the president of non sequitur (“it does not follow”).

The president is against automatic weapons and the drug trade that has made the border with Mexico so dangerously violent.  So he went to Mexico and then left again without any new pledge againsts drugs, guns or a lawless border.  Non sequitur.

He wants to clean up the financial system and see the economy thrive but he has launched upon a debt supported spending binge and continues to attacks bankers, Wall Street and even fired the head of GM.  Non sequitur.

He wants to attack the economy and make it well but there is none of the job creation and building projects of the FDR years — he has linked recovery to health care, education and climate change.  Non sequitur.

Maybe I don’t “get it.”  Or maybe the president doesn’t get it — which really worries me….

Obama Amid the World Of Disorder

By George Neumayr
American Spectator

Modern liberals measure “progress” not by the unfolding fulfillment of the natural moral law but by its elimination. Consequently, most of what is labeled “progress” is basically just regress, a return, under a glossier guise, to the practices of antiquity and pre-Christian paganism.

Pagans stuck the inconvenient elderly on snow drifts; moderns dehydrate them to death in hospitals. Pagans left unwanted babies to die on hilltops; moderns bury them in bins behind Planned Parenthood clinics. Pagans attended orgies, moderns attend “gay weddings.”

In its deepening moral squalor, in its raw defiance of reality as God made it, the Brave New World is as barbaric as the old one. That Hillary Clinton and other architects of the Brave New World are now forced to grapple clumsily with piracy is somehow fitting. Their “new world order” is intrinsically disordered, a reckless ideological experiment that explodes in recurring currents of chaos, discontent, and lawlessness. Why not piracy too?

The recent gusher of globalist babble at the G-20 summit is exposed by the rise of piracy as a total sham. And the rise of piracy is one more proof of Dambisa Moyo’s thesis in Dead Aid — that ceaseless Western government-to-government handouts to Africa, which are just a new version of white colonialism, have frozen the continent in a helpless and horrid past. After a trillion dollars over sixty years, the only vivid display of entrepreneurial activity in Africa today is…piracy.

Obama in Mexico, Trinidad to Achieve What? Nothing, Next To Nothing and Status Quo

April 17, 2009

At a joint press conference with President Felipe Calderon of Mexico, President Barack Obama just now said that he has not backed “off at all from my belief that the assault weapons ban made sense…Having said that, none of us are under any illusion that reinstating that ban would be easy.”

“What we’ve focused on how we can improve our enforcement under existing laws,” Mr. Obama said.
.
That means the status quo.
.
This is just another photo op trip with no substance — but at least he didn’t bow to Calderon.  I take that back.  It IS A BOW to Calderon who really DOES want the drugs and money to continue to flow.  Most of his govenment profits a lot from the trafficking and cutting off the flow of Mexican people heading north?  Unthinkable.

“Our border with Mexico allows the free flow of drugs, money, guns and illegal human beings.  It is only trucks from Mexico with tomatoes that can’t get north, because the Teamsters Union makes it so,” a border agent told us.

The Teamsters get what they want and Calderon gets what he wants.  This is the come and get what you want President Of the United States.  I take that back too.  He’ll come to you, wherever your dictatorship is…..

Newt Gingrich said, “If the president wanted to shut off the flow of drugs and guns and money to and from Mexico, he should seal the border.”

But we have no such promise and not a word of criticism from the media.

No no new gun law.

Senator Obama supports making permanent the expired federal Assault Weapon Ban. These weapons, such as AK-47s, belong on foreign battlefields and not on our streets. These are also not weapons that are used by hunters and sportsmen.”

That ban expired in 2004, and Mexican President Calderon recently told Nightline that he thought “it was very good legislation. During that period, we didn’t suffer a lot, like we suffered in the four or five years” since it expired.

But the White House has indicated it is not willing to expend political capital on the issue.

Just put a sign on the White House lawn that says “DEATH TO MEXICAN POLICE!”

Now the president is off to Trinidad for  a Western Hemisphere summit.  The critical issue of Cuba will dominate.

With all the important work for the President of the United States, with Iran, North Korea, Russia, China, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, the economy and etc. it must be delightful for him to take a trip to Mexico to do nothing and to Trinidad for next to nothing….
