"Nobody, But Nobody, Outstupids Mississippi!"

That was quite a quotation Tuesday night from comedian Stephen Colbert on the Comedy Central Emmy and Peabody Award-winning parody news program ‘The Colbert Report’. Colbert had a photo of Columbus’ own District 39 State Representative Jeff Smith on the screen beside him as he playfully joked about the legislation presented this week by Smith and counterpart, District 37 State Representative Gary Chism. (You can view the entire skit at The Colbert Report website at www.colbertnation.com).

Colbert also made jokes about Smith’s famous handle-bar mustache, including its’ likeness to tempura shrimp (I can’t help but believe that even Jeff, himself, fell out laughing at the skit. His son Corky told The Packet last night that Jeff is taking the comedian’s jabs well and was hard at work at the capitol late into Wednesday night. RW)

The controversial bill has been featured on CNN and Huffington Post and is spreading like wildfire across the blogosphere, somewhat due in part to Smith’s distinct appearance in the lead photograph.taking the comedian’s jabs well and was hard at work at the capitol late into Wednesday night. RW)

That proposed legislation, detailed on pg.4 of this week’s Packet, would “create a committee to help neutralize federal laws and regulations ‘outside the scope of the powers of the federal government in the United states Constitution’.The committee would decide which federal laws would be enforced and which would be ignored. It’s basically an answer to President Barack Obama’s recent executive order to enforce gun laws enacted by him through an executive order.

For Smith, Chism and Mississippi to gain national attention from their proposed legislation is huge within itself. Smith would do well to seize the moment and appear on some national talk shows. Packet Publisher Colin Krieger and I discussed that it would be a golden opportunity for Smith to gain some national exposure and give him a forum to explain his position on the bill. It’s our bet that people like Stephen Colbert, and many others like him, would be very surprised at the sharp, witty charm of Jeff Smith. (Doesn’t matter what the actual legislation is. RW). Jeff Smith, as I have stated many times in the past, can carry on an intelligent, fact-filled conversation with anyone – from a law professor to the Pope to President Obama to a liberal college professor – at anytime, anywhere!

In the meantime, Jeff Smith has always been a conservative…even when he was a Democrat. Now a Republican, this legislation puts his ‘Republican, Conservative, Tea Party’ stamp on his legacy for good, no doubt about it.

I suppose Mississippi is an easy target for the national media, but I can’t say anyone- including his opponents- would say Jeff Smith is stupid.

    Stephen Colbert’s caustic commentary is tame compared to the vitriol and ad hominem attacks directed at Chism and Smith spewed by certain posters at NMisscommentor.com to whom I like to refer as the Judean People’s Front(from Monty Python’s Life of Brian) led by P. B. Pike, Anderson(the mysterious Jackson Lawyer) and Ben(Toledano.)At last count, there were 98 comments with Charlie Ali and Col Reb Sez fending off the Supremecy Clause worshippers.

    It’s hard to believe that Ben Toledano was once the candidate for the National States Rights Party back in the 1950s. Was he a poseur then, too?

    One of the saner comments on the Supremacy Bill.

    So much for dialogue of the bill as a ‘social document’. Mississippi was born to revolt against the general government every fifty years. Its as bloody and tragic as Palestine or Pakistan. The feds have a small army of workers here to try to manage the impulse to secede. The CIA have had their man in the Governor’s Mansion…a few times.

    I think that “Ali” is referring to Haley Barbour as CIA. During Barbour’s reign as governor, he and Wil Colom, along with their wives and Wil’s daugher, flew to Houston to dine with the CIA’s capo de tutti capi, George H. W, Bush. I suspect more was discussed than small talk and Wil’s admiring Bab’s short skirt? Wil has connections to Tanzania which is one of the 35 countries in Africa
    where Obama’s AFRICOM stages covert operations in the President’s land of birth.

    This report on the Barbour/Colom plane trip to Houston appeared in the Columbus Packet under Roger’s tutelary.

    And Scott’s no commenting.

    From 2003
    {snip}

    A $250-a-plate fundraiser will be held at Old Waverly next Tuesday (June
    17) for GOP gubernatorial candidate Haley Barbour.
    We neglected to mention that last month (May 15) Wil Colom flew
    Haley to Houston, Tex. in his Citation jet for a fundraiser sponsored by
    former President George Bush. Wil’s daughter, Niani, went, and
    Haley’s wife Barbour. The dinner was at a private residence and only ten
    couples were at table, including George and Barbara Bush and the
    Barbours. When we asked Wil what a plate cost, he replied, “Let’s
    just say you definitely weren’t paying just for the meal.”
    Wil said Barbara Bush was wearing a blue suit with a short skirt.
    He told her, “I love you in that blue suit,” and she replied that she
    bet he liked the length too. He said he did. She told him, “George
    likes it. I wear it all the time.”
    Wil said that Niani and George hit it off, sitting together and
    talking about France, where she lived before coming to Columbus last
    year.
    “It was a way for the former president to do something for Haley
    in Houston,” Wil told us. “I’m sure he’ll do a bigger one if Haley wants
    it.”
    It occurred to us that the Citation had crashed Mississippi would
    have lost both its biggest champion of tort reform and its biggest
    class-action lawyer.

    It is not surprising for people like Colbert to attempt to ridicule those (as Jeff Smith) who are concerned about the floundering of our country. As one might expect in today’s culture, the Colbert Report, an entertainment version of O’Reilly’s program, might gain some prominence.

    Even Saul Alinsky, the Chicago Communist organizer, would be pleasantly amazed at the present day state of the US. His 1971 book, Rules of Radicals, has become the work book and Bible for our present day Communist and Marxist. The book, dedicated to Satan, provides strategies to subvert a culture such as in the US toward a Utopian structure. Communists and Marxists visualize illusionary Utopian societies as their ultimate goal. To better appreciate our current politicians, Hilary Clinton dedicated her college thesis to Saul Alinsky.

    To prove the total failure of Communism and Marxism, one has to only compared the societies of West Germany East Germany and South Korea North Korea. These countries had identical historical cultures, languages, climates, resources, etc. Yet, we see the comparison. One side provided the freedom of opportunity to become whatever they want along with other freedoms such as thought, speech, etc. The other side is based on controlling every aspect of life from work, freedom of expression, food, etc. Sound familiar?

    The 1787 Philadelphia Convention (which was later called the Constitutional Convention) was initially formed to improve the 1777 Articles of Confederation. The Articles of Confederation created a government which was too loosely organized. The convention, which lasted from May to September 1787, was a serious exercise to formulate a new direction for America. The 55 delegates were widely varied but all had the advantaged of studying present and past forms of government. Another aspect was taking into consideration inherit human nature and tendencies. The words of Edmund Burke [1729-1797] echoed among the members, “Those who don’t know history are destined to repeat it.”

    There was tension at the convention between the Federalists and anti-Federalists on three primary issues; slavery/representation, separation of power, and individual rights. Many compromises were final agreed to. A resolution of slavery was put off in order to agree at that time. It was resolved by the Civil War. Governmental separation of powers and checks and balances were very important. The members could look to historic abuses of one part of government abusing its power. At the end, it came down to member George Mason leading a revolt to insist on guaranteed rights the government could not ignore which provided the Bill of Rights [first 10 Amendments] and the Constitution’s final agreement.

    For over two hundred years the US has become focus for those wanting to be free to achieve their goals and freedom. Those Marxists and Communist countries had to construct walls to contain their citizens. The US, on the other hand, has had its borders over ran and attempted to control this unbridled influx. The current talking point by Obama is fairness. This is being actively applied in North Korea. This is their ultimate goal. However, Traditionalist understand it is not the nebulous term “fairness” but “freedom of opportunity for all” that has made America freedom’s beacon around the World.

    The enemies of freedom have increasingly conspired to destroy the Bill of Rights. The 10th Amendment was the first victim. It says those powers not stated in Constitution are controlled by individual states. The insight of Lord Acton is still proven true, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Have we heard recently about the 2nd Amendment?

    The aspirations created by the American Dream have become something to be destroyed and ridiculed by followers of Saul Alinsky. If Colbert has any insight he would look to those states/cities which are economic failures and their limitations on freedom. Representative Jeff Smith is fighting to continue the American Dream which is under its worst threat in history. The present administration and unknowing supporters present a greater threat to America than Hitler, Japanese Empire, or USSR.

      Lord Acton to General Robert E. Lee~ 1866

      It cannot have escaped you that much of the good will felt in England towards the South, so far as it was not simply the tribute of astonishment and admiration won by your campaigns, was neither unselfish nor sincere. It sprang partly from an exultant belief in the hope that America would be weakened by the separation, and from terror at the remote prospect of Farragut appearing in the channel and Sherman landing in Ireland.

      I am anxious that you should distinguish the feeling which drew me aware toward your cause and your career, and which now guides my pen, from that thankless and unworthy sympathy.

      Without presuming to decide the purely legal question, on which it seems evident to me from Madison’s and Hamilton’s papers that the Fathers of the Constitution were not agreed, I saw in State Rights the only availing check upon the absolutism of the sovereign will, and secession filled me with hope, not as the destruction but as the redemption of Democracy. The institutions of your Republic have not exercised on the old world the salutary and liberating influence which ought to have belonged to them, by reason of those defects and abuses of principle which the Confederate Constitution was expressly and wisely calculated to remedy. I believed that the example of that great Reform would have blessed all the races of mankind by establishing true freedom purged of the native dangers and disorders of Republics. Therefore I deemed that you were fighting the battles of our liberty, our progress, and our civilization; and I mourn for the stake which was lost at Richmond more deeply than I rejoice over that which was saved at Waterloo.

    Stephen Colbert has become the posterboy for Zombie Interviews;however,Piers Morgan is nipping at his heels.

    The Daily Show’s Jason Jones and Rob Corddry were always the best at lampooning zombie interviews. And Jones could do it with class.
    Not so, Colbert.

    Ain’t Mississippi great. We keep electing Idiots each time and expect a difference results. City elections coming up. Need changes!

      At the risk of continuing this discussion beyond the limits of acceptability, your indirect reference to Baltimore suggests an April 18, 1864 Lincoln speech (Address at a Sanitary Fair). A paragraph in this speech is appropriate in these recent times.

      “The world has never had a good definition of the word liberty, and the American people, just now, are much in want of one. We all declare for liberty; but in using the same word we do not all mean the same thing. With some the word liberty may mean for each man to do as he pleases with himself, and the product of his labor; while with others the same word may mean for some men to do as they please with other men, and the product of other men’s labor. Here are two, not only different, but incompatable things, called by the same name———liberty. And it follows that each of the things is, by the respective parties, called by two different and incompatable names———liberty and tyranny.”

      The meaning of Lincoln’s thoughts is that there are different definitions the words “liberty and tyranny”. One meaning is for individuals to be free. The other meaning is that some [politicians] believe they are free to oppress others.

  7. Minuteman

    The context of previous Comment was that even Lincoln could see dangers in the future. The ridiculus aspect of emancipation decree was that it only freed slaves in states NOT controlled by Union forces. Many Union generals refused to free slaves. I have a number of relatives who were in CSA. Lincoln was the worst friend of the South and the best friend after the warM

    IMO, a better way to achieve the results that Rep. Smith wanted in the Supremacy Bill is to go through the ballot initiative process—as was done with the Mississippi Flag initiative some ten years ago– and let the people vote for a Jury Education Initiative that will allow jurors to decide what is lawful, just and fair. That was the reason that “a jury of one’s peers” language was inserted into the Bill of Rights– to protect against prosecutorial abuse and judicial tyranny. The dictatorial specter of executive orders “trumping” the guarantees of the Bill of Rights by a bona fide war criminal in the White House can be stopped at the local level in the “jury box” by educated and informed jurors. When the soap box and the ballot box fails, there is the jury box…and some say that when that fails there’s always the ammo box(aka the 2nd Amendment.)

    And an addendum to the initiative would be the right of “juror’s questions” in criminal and civil trials. That is, jurors would be allowed to submit written questions to the judge that are directed at participants in the trial. The questions would be required to be read aloud and the answers to become part of the Court record.

    What possible motive would Senator Brown have in introducing Senate Resolution No. 562– “commending” the bandit state of Israel(aka IsraHell)? Israel’s roots as an international pariah began at Paris where its zealots at the “make Germany Pay” 1919 Paris Peace Conference, led by Zionist Organization of America’s Ben Victor Cohen, extorted deed and title to Palestine from Lord Balfour as payback for jewish “yellow journalism” propaganda efforts in dragging the United States into WWI on the allied side. There Cohen, Weizmann, Brandeis, Frankfruter, Mack and the other jewish members of Woodrow Wilson’s shadow cabinet drew the territorial lines for the future Judenstaat that ultimately lead to the expulsion of its indigenous population to make room for the Khazar race(aka Ashkenazi jews) from the Asian Caucasus. Now, it’s called ethnic cleansing.

    Ben Victor Cohen’s role in international affairs, to the detriment of US interests, did not end there. It’s all in the biography Ben Victor Cohen:Architect of the New Deal by William Glasser. Cohen also fabricated the FDR legislation that created the Lend-Lease Act(arming Stalin and the Bolsheviks)and the United Nations Charter.

    See in the video below how the “only democracy in the Middle East” treats it’s Palestinian inhabitants– the descendants of those that did not flee Menachem Begin’s Irgun terrorists in 1947-1948. The terrorist Begin later received the Nobel Peace Prize.

    Senator Brown should tell us who has been whispering into his ear. He’s not bright enough to think of this on his own. Maybe he’ll win one of those coveted “birthright trips to Israel” for him and his family and then come back to tell us how great things are in the “Land of Milk and Honey?”?

    Better watch out for the flying s**t!

    I can imagine the Mississippi Senate debate on Senator Brown’s Resolution 562 went something like the Chuck Hagel confirmation grilling parody.

    The dress rehearsal parody by the cast at SNL never made to “Live from New York, It’s Saturday Night.” It was canned and I can expect that its writer Jim Downey will never work in that town(NYC) again.

    However, the sissy fruit Senator from South Carolina and his “shuffling” sayim sidekick will get a standing applause when they speak at the AIPAC “convention.”

    The material being sprayed on the Palestinian homes and its people is chemical “skunk.” It is not human fecal matter.
