It's time once again for the Watcher's Council's 'Weasel Of The Week' nominations, where we pick our choices to compete for the award of the famed Golden Weasel to a public figure who particularly deserves to be slimed and mocked for his or her dastardly deeds during the week. Every Tuesday morning, tune in for the Weasel of the Week nominations!
Here are this weeks' nominees....
New York's comedy Newspaper, The Daily News
The Noisy Room : My submission this week is the NY Daily News for labeling the 47 US Senators as traitors, all Republicans, who sent a signed letter to Iran pointing out the minor detail that any agreement made between Obama and Iran without approval by the Senate is unconstitutional.
Let’s get this straight… the traitors here are Barack Obama and any on the Marxist Left who cut a deal with Iran for nuclear capabilities without Congressional approval, by skirting constitutional law and by seeking UN intervention. You don’t get to redefine ‘treason’ as you see fit. I think you have the words ‘patriot’ and ‘traitor’ confused. The first rule of treason is to call the other guy a traitor. You see the true treasonous responses in President Obama’s own reply to the letter which encouraged all this loose talk about treason. “It’s somewhat ironic to see some members of Congress wanting to make common cause with the hardliners in Iran,” he told reporters. “It’s an unusual coalition.” And what would be an act of treachery without the Queen of Transparency, Hillary Clinton, who held a press conference ostensibly to explain why she hid her work product at the State Department and then made similar statements. Although no one asked her about the GOP letter, she gave her opinion: “Either these senators were trying to be helpful to the Iranians, or harmful to commander-in-chief in the middle of high stakes international diplomacy.” Typical Leftist bull crap – blaming those who are trying to save the Republic as being in cahoots with the Iranians when it is so blatantly the other way around. Spoken with a true forked tongue. The Marxists even stooped to calling Tom Cotton, “Tehran Tom.” How very Orwellian to brand someone with that moniker who went to Harvard Law School and enlisted in the US Army to fight in Iraq and Afghanistan.
For stooping to a new low (and that's saying something for them), the NY Daily News gets my nomination this week. They've hugely earned it.
Utterly Unhinged Lefty Whack Job Ed Schultz!!
The Right Planet : Following the shooting of two police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, by a 20-year-old thug, Jeffrey Williams, MSNBC's resident hothead, Ed Schultz, recommended disarming the police. Let the officers carry nightsticks instead, said Sgt. Schultz. Wuut? I can hear it now: "We're taking fire! Grab your nightsticks!!" Apparently Mr. Ed believes only criminals and thugs should be armed with guns. Brilliant. I mean, come on. He's just trolling us now.
The Totally Disloyal And Brain Dead Associated Students of University of California, Irvine (ASUCI) !
Ask Marion :
Yep, you heard that right… The Associated Students of University of California (ASUCI), a California State University in the USA, wanted to stop flying the American flag on their campus.
They passed a resolution on March 3rd that would remove the Stars & Stripes along with every other flag from the lobby of a complex housing the offices of the student government… or fly the flag of every ethnic group and country that was represented on that campus.
“Designing a culturally inclusive space aims to remove barriers that create undue effort and separation by planning and designing spaces that enable everyone to participate equally and confidentially,” read the resolution authored by Matthew Guevara.
The resolution passed 6 to 4, with two abstentions. 6 confused progressives, 4 patriots and 2 politicians in the making.
The ASUCI president and a young patriot, Reza Zomorrodian, was very upset over the student government’s actions and was pushing for a veto.
“It’s an attack on American values,” he said. “A lot of people want to come to the United States for a reason – it’s because of the freedoms we have.”;
He went on to say “Only six people voted for this. We have 22,000 undergrads here. Six people made this decision. The UC Irvine has made huge contributions to bettering this country. This is an elected body that made a decision for the whole and will suffer the consequences of making that decision.”
After the complaints and pressure from many parents, (most) students at the school who disagreed, outside parties, and Reza Zomorrodian, it has already been overturned. This was even too much for progressive California, or as Todd Starnes of Fox News wrote, “This is even bizarre for the yoga and granola bunch in California”.
The scary part though is that there are far too many people on our university campuses around the country who think this is normal thinking!
The Regime's Own Komedy King, 'Director Of National Intelligence' James Clapper!!
JoshuaPundit : Yes, good ol' Jim Clapper, Obama's 'intelligence' specialist, who referred to the Muslim Brotherhood as 'a secular organization' without even cracking a smile when testifying before congress. Yes, the laugh was in in his delivery - pompous, all knowing and put upon that he should even be questioned on such things by such mere peasants.
Since then, Jim Clapper has been good for a lot of laughs as he reliably shills for Obama's failed foreign policy.
His latest caper? In his 2015 Worldwide Threat Assessment for congress he totally delisted Iran as a state supporter of terrorism and Iran's proxy Hezbollah as a terrorist group. And why not? They're our allies now, President Obama says so, and so does James Clapper. so it must be true...
Yeah, they seem like a friendly bunch, don't they? What's wrong with them having nukes?
Well, there it is. What a despicable group of Weasels...ANY OF THEM COULD WIN! Check back Thursday to see which Weasel walks off with the statuette of shame!
