Bill Maher is at it again, stacking his panel with “Liberal Fool” “gay man” who hate women, just to prove a point. The point being is that “Little Bill” is obviously threatened by intelligent-principled women like Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachman. His only recourse is to insult instead of arguing on merits. Maybe “Little Bill” should stick to commenting on his liberal - Cornell educated, airhead, gay, friends’ escapades.
Or, perhaps “Little Bill” could comment about the economic mess that our president Obama caused. How he (Obama) destroyed consumer confidence starting two years before his election. Therefore sending the US (and the world followed) into a recession. Even those at HHC (Harvard Community College) understand that consumer confidence is the single most important variable in an economy.

Thank God Sarah Palin didn't go to HHC (Harvard Community College). HHC has only produced "Liberal Fools" whom believe that 'theorizing' can produce results. When it is action through experience that produces positive outcomes. Since our president has no prior experience with anything larger than a 'one family economy' we act surprised. As commander-in-chief he that can't tell the difference between a dead body and a sailor (corpsman), some act surprised. Face it people, the social experiment was nice in theory but a disaster in practice. No longer can this country afford amateur hour in the white house. We need a “leader from the front” who is willing to support and defend the Constitution of the United States and each and every 'state constitution' subjugate thereof.
In Sarah’s words:
Barack Obama’s big government policies continue to fail. He should put a link to the national debt clock on his BlackBerry. The gears on that clock have nearly exploded during his administration. Yesterday’s terrible job numbers should not be a surprise because it all goes back to our debt. Our dangerously unsustainable debt is wiping out our jobs, crippling our economic growth, and jeopardizing our position in the global economy as the leader of the free world.
As a governor, I had to deal with facts, even unpleasant ones. I dealt with the world as it is, not as I wished it to be. The “elite” political class in this country with their heads in the sand had better face some unpleasant facts about the world as it is. They’ve run out of money and no amount of accounting gimmicks or happy talk will change this reality. Those of us who live in the real world could see this day coming.
Back in January 2009, as governor of Alaska, I announced: “We also have to be mindful about the effect of the stimulus package on the national debt and the future economic health of the country. We won’t achieve long-term stability if we continue borrowing massive sums from foreign countries and remain dependent on foreign sources of oil and gas.” Then I urged President Obama to veto the stimulus bill because it was loaded with absolutely useless pork and unfunded mandates. Everyone knows my early and vocal opposition to that mother of all unfunded mandates known as Obamacare starting back in August 2009, and many recall my objections to the Federal Reserves’ inflationary games with our currency known as QE2 from November 2010. It’s a matter of public record that I did not go to Harvard Law School, but I can add.

I would like to personally thank Governor Perry of Texas for standing on principle and the rule of law. It doesn’t matter what country you are trying to hide behind, if you commit a murder in Texas you will have to ‘man up’ and face the gallows. Now, if only our national leaders would display the same backbone – I would be grateful.

Below you will find the complete rationalization of our president to halt the execution of a convicted murderer from Mexico. In part, it is to protect our citizens abroad if convicted of murder themselves. Although, I am of the belief that if they commit murder (where ever), they should be held accountable. Who gives a damn if it's in a foreign country? It is just like those "Liberal Fools" who think that capital punishment is "cruel and unusual" until one of their daughters is raped and murdered. The details committed by that ‘murderous PUNK’ were so horrific that it makes me want to strap his PUNK-ass into "Sparky" myself. However, those "Liberal Fools" are weak and more dangerous than the murderers themselves. Stay diligent my friends!
President Barack Obama has asked the Texan authorities not to execute the convicted rapist and murderer Humberto Leal Garcia. President Barack Obama is attempting to block the execution in Texas on Thursday of a Mexican man because it would breach an international convention and do "irreparable harm" to US interests.
The White House has asked the US Supreme Court to put the execution of Humberto Leal Garcia on hold while Congress passes a law that would prevent the convicted rapist and murderer from being put to death along with dozens of other foreign nationals who were denied proper access to diplomatic representation before trials for capital crimes.
The administration moved after the governor of Texas, Rick Perry, brushed aside appeals from diplomats, top judges, senior military officers, the United Nations and former president George W Bush to stay Leal's execution because it could jeopardize American citizens arrested abroad as well as US diplomatic interests.
Leal, 38, was convicted in 1994 of the rape and murder of a 16-year-old girl in San Antonio. Few question that he was responsible for the killing but the Texas authorities failed to tell Leal, who was born in Mexico and has lived in the US since the age of two, that under the Vienna convention he was entitled to contact the Mexican consulate when he was arrested.
Leal's lawyers argue that the lack of consular access played a role in the death penalty being applied because the Mexican national incriminated himself in statements made during "non-custodial interviews" with the police on the day of the murder. Had Leal had access to the Mexican consulate it would have been likely to have arranged a lawyer who would have advised the accused man to limit his statements to the police. As it was, the Mexican authorities were never informed of his arrest.
In a 30-page brief to the Supreme Court, the administration said that the carrying out of the execution "would place the United States in irreparable breach of its international law obligation" under the convention.
The White House said it was in the US's interests to meet its treaty obligations.
"These interests include protecting Americans abroad, fostering co-operation with foreign nations, and demonstrating respect for the international rule of law," it said.
Carrying out Leal's execution would cause "irreparable harm" to US interests abroad, the administration added.
"That breach would have serious repercussions for United States foreign relations, law-enforcement and other co-operation with Mexico, and the ability of American citizens travelling abroad to have the benefits of consular assistance in the event of detention," it said.
The legal situation has been complicated by earlier court rulings.
In 2004, the international court of justice (ICJ) ruled that the US authorities had failed to meet its legal obligations to 51 Mexicans awaiting execution in American prisons when they were not informed of their right to contact their consulates.
The then president, George W Bush, a former Texas governor who backs the death penalty, said the US would adhere to the ICJ ruling which, in effect, meant the death sentences would be reviewed or commuted. But in 2008 the Supreme Court ruled that while the US government was obliged to comply with the ICJ ruling it did not have the power to force individual American states to do so. Only Congress could require adherence by passing a law.
The Obama administration has told the Supreme Court that a bill has recently been introduced in to the Senate to do just that but it is unlikely to win the approval of both houses of Congress before next year. The White House wants Leal's execution put on hold until the law is passed but two courts have already ruled that pending legislation has no effect on the legal process.
The UN high commissioner for human rights, Navi Pillay, has appealed to Perry to commute Leal's sentence to life imprisonment.
Christof Heyns, the UN special reporter on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions said that if Leal was put to death it would be "tantamount to an arbitrary deprivation of life".
Perry's office has said Texas laws had been abided by and that Leal would be executed for "the most heinous of crimes".
