Honduras Showing Guts

Manuel Zelaya, the man ordered removed from his office as President of Honduras somehow has the support of the United States, the United Nations, the Organization of American States, the Castro brothers, Hugo Chavez, and Daniel Ortega.

Perhaps that is why he decided to boldly attempt to fly back to the country whose government removed him from power despite the insistence of sitting president Roberto Micheletti that Zelaya would be arrested if he re-entered the country. The runways were blocked and Zelaya did not land. The OAS has expelled Honduras from its circle of countries willing to play ball (big whoop).

Mary Anastasia O'Grady has an excellent piece in the Wall Street Journal on the Honduras situation

Hondurans have good cause for calling on divine intervention: Reason has gone AWOL in places like Turtle Bay and Foggy Bottom. Ruling the debate on Mr. Zelaya's behavior is Venezuelan strongman Hugo Chávez, who is now the reigning international authority on "democracy."
Be sure to read the entire column.....

Obama's stance, which calls on Zelaya to be reinstated is a dangerously telling sign that the President of the United States is NOT siding with the rule of law, instead siding with a man who shares a pea pod with Chavez, Ortega, and the Castro Brothers. The signal this sends to the world is that Obama is taking the side of a would-be dictator over democracy in Honduras.

Who would you side with?

In either case, it looks like the constitutional crisis in Honduras is escalating as the man who thumbed his nose at that constitution (Zelaya) seems to be getting much more support than those who insisted on upholding their country's laws.


John Cornyn Gets Earful from Voters

h/t to Michelle Malkin for providing a link to the video of Texas Senator John Cornyn speaking at the Texas Capital on July 4th.

For those familiar with my show, I have been extremely critical of John Cornyn on a few fronts (his voting for TARP and his position on Sonia Sotomayor among them). Voters are so fed up with their politicians not listening to them and they may have walked away mad after John Cornyn was done talking but they weren't mad because he wasn't listening....

Oh, he heard them loud and clear.... Keep watching after the crowd dies down during Cornyn's paying tribute to the military. After he's done doing that and goes on to chastise Washington as almost a non-participatory observer, one protestor yells, "You're the PROBLEM!"

On March 26th, during an interview with Lynn Woolley Cornyn said he voted for TARP because he didn't understand enough about the issue and relied on advisors who told him Hank Paulson was the "smartest man on the planet". Like in the above video where Cornyn points a finger at Washington, D.C. when there were four pointing back at him, during the Woolley interview, he said Paulson "was wrong" without accepting blame himself.

My point then was that Cornyn apparently thought Paulson was smarter than his constituents because he chose to listen to the former as the latter told him overwhelmingly NOT to vote for TARP.

I'd like to ask a question of Mr. Cornyn...

How does it feel knowing that your constituents are smarter than the "smartest man on the planet"?
