Two of Klavan's books have been adapted into motion pictures: True Crime (1999) and Don’t Say A Word (2001). He has been nominated for the Edgar Award four times and has won twice.

This lying president just keeps getting us deeper and deeper in dept every day. What in the world are our elected reps in DC doing, besides nothing? Can this entire government really be so blind as to not see and understand what this maniac is doing to this country? We, as citizens can scream and holler till the cows come home but it won't mean a thing until congress wakes up. And until these moron on the left wake up and get rid of this thorn in our backsides nothing will change. As for congress, all they think about is re-election. My biggest area of disappointment is from our republican leaders. Are they so scared about their next re-election that they have all swallowed their pride and guts?
It seems to me that both parties are bringing down the country. We are in a spiritual war for the survival of this nation. May be we do have one more chance to save this country, but it won't be from a new administration. I just don’t recognize this country anymore.
For those of you who still adore and defend this president, I can only wonder what he has to do to change your closed minds? I guess that as long as he is in office and people refuse to do their own thinking, things will get worse and worse. I'd just like to hear some of the radical liberals defend what he did with cutting our military, and now our national debt has gone over 15 trillion,
where will this all end?

Joe said...

tcb: I call him President BO (the child president). President out of respect for the office, BO because his policies stink and (the child president) because he acts like a spoiled brat (not to mention his clinical narcicism).

He sees it as his mission to become the permanant "leader" of this country and to bring us down to the level of other countries.

I don't know why liberals can't see that, except that they have been blinded by the policital glitter.

RedWhiteAndBlue said...

The liberals elected this clown because they thought that he would be the first classless president the US had ever had. And he has not disappointed them.

Joe said...

RWaB: Oh, President BO (the child president) has lots of class.

All of it low.

IntolerantCynicami said...

I enjoyed your blog, Jo-Jo. Thanks for writing it. In these days of nightmares of online leftist political blogs, I found yours to be very refreshing.
Needless to say it would be even better without those two liberal slobs rebutting every word that you write.

Ducky's here said...

"Don't Say a Word" -- another stink bomb.

Starred Michael Douglas and it still lost money.

Explains why all Klavan can get is a job pimping for National Review.

Ducky's here said...

Joe, is Fredd creating the fake id's to complain about the liberal slobs?

Have to admit he has style.

sue hanes said...

Joe - This is good stuff.

I think we should run Tim Hawkins for President on the American Boggers ticket and Andrew Klaver for vice-pres.

You could be Secretary of Mistakes - Joe.

as for me I'd like to see the tattoo on Susan Twinkley's arm,

sue hanes can have the staring role in Dumb and Dumber

Intolerant - I think I need to get a Life - cause you are starting to look good to me.

Apparently, Ducky never gets tired of hearing the housefly-stealth bomber analogy.

Congratulations on making it on the Big Time. bit.ly/wFoY7A

A Conservative With A Heart said...

Dear Joe, I don't know if you have yet seen the disgusting and insulting blog that XO wrote today, but i think that you should.


IntolerantCynicami said...

Joe, as A Conservative With A Heart said, you should have read that bloody blog before it was altered and before he deleted ALL those posts and comments from other bloggers who defended you and turned on him for what he said.

This is the typical type of work by the COWARDS on the left. They can't take the heat when it's turned up against them. Liberals dislike controversial criticism.
Oh the hypocrisy.

Joe said...

ACWAH & IC: I don't really care what XO says about me. And since it is his blog, he can delete whomever he wishes.

But he IS a mindless coward, nonetheless.

From whence I come, ALL Americans are hapless Libruls. I mean for the sake of the divine being(s) of your choice, y'all have democracy! How liberal is that?
I see no difference. Yins are still as testicles in a scrotum (That's 'peas in a pod' for those unable to comprehend my simile).

As soon as we get rid of that caucasoid-loving/marrying strumpet Aung San Suu Kyi, Myanmar will rule the planet with a velvet glove covering an iron fist. We will be strict, but fair.

Did you know that not only was Aung San, Suu Kyi's father, a Communist he also sided with the Imperial Japanese during Dubya Dubya Two until it was obvious they were going to lose - then switched allegiance to the equally horrid Brits.
The Brits, to their credit, had him 'offed' after the war ended.
The sins of the father shall indeed be visited upon the daughter.
And I don't like Mother Teresa much either.


Why do you allow folks like IntolerantCynicami to 'beat-up' on defenceless girls like Ms. Hanes? That's hardly chivalrous of you.

I had to post under another blog name as my real name, 'Aquarians Love To F*** would break the house Rules

SR said...

If any of yins needed any proof that ALL of you Americans are Libruls I need only refer you to the results of latest Republican primary.

To wit:

That Ru Paul guy came in second with 22.9% in the Palmetto State last night - now if THAT is not Librul behaviour, I'll eat Mr. Paul's size 42R bustier!

Speaking of the Palmetto State, did you know that an ingested extract of the American Saw Palmetto plant is an excellent natural treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)?
Urinate like you did when you were twenty!

the cowboys blog said...

Anonymous, and/or SR or whoever the hell you are, why don't you go to "From whence you come from", and stat there? America has more than enough of her own problems with Obama and "From whence HE come from" without imbeciles like you coming here or pretending that you are "From whence you come from"

Craig said...

SR, Don't mean to nit pick but I will. The Palmetto state is S. Carolina.

When I was 20, I had a urinary tract infection and, I think, cooties. At 56 I'm streaming like Man-O-War. Without saw palmetto.

SR said...


You are, of course, correct. I have been misinformed. That'll learn me to get my American data from the BBC.

I am a girl, so my streaming is suspect at best, but my pentagenarian male friends would envy you - except the cooties part.

SR said...

Dearest The Cowboys Blog.

"From whence you come from" is redundant.
You American liberals do have your troubles with proper English don't you?

Dora Rachael said...

Joe, I'm so tired of the Democrats' double standard. And I'm sure that you feel the same way. The only way to defend against it is to stay on the attack yourself. As I try to do.
The Liberal media will gutter every republican presidential nominee and destroy hem or her no matter who it turns out to be, they will Sara Palin them.
And the lying thin-skinned libs who comment here are at the very least lowlife sewer rats.

Dearest SR

I know exactly what "From whence you come from" means, my use of it was purely to show everybody what an ASS you are.

SR said...

Oh dear!
Mr. Brokeback Cowboys Blog has typical Liberal reading comprehension skills.

You are correct in your assertion that I am an a** though. You Liberals seem to think all us Conservatives are a**es. I've learned to live with your abuse.

sue hanes said...

Why thank you Aquarina for your kind words about me - but really - defenseless?

Not any more.

SR said...

You go girl!

SR said...

Notice to all Libruls.....

Many of you are operating under the misconception, albeit understandably so, that I pixellate my word salads with the intent of maximising the number of you and your ilk who might understand them. This is indeed erroneous. I instead craft and deposit my dross with the express purpose of minimising the number of people who should comprehend it. It is only with the few, the lucky few, the band of Real Conservative brothers (and sisters) that I wish to communicate.
Sorry, but you Libruls are just one of the myriad brain-dead which we Real Conservatives use to close the wall up as we go once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more. In true Conservatism there’s nothing so becomes a man, or woman, as modest stillness and humility. But when the vileness of the Librul blows in our ears, we imitate the action of the tiger: stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood, and disguise fair nature with hard-favoured rage. Be copy now Real Conservatives to men, and women, of grosser blood and teach those Libruls how to war. And you, good yeopersons, whose limbs were forged in Real Conservatism, show us here the mettle of your pasture. Let us swear that you are worth your breeding, which I doubt not.

I tried to get Sir Lawrence, with his stentorian voice, to post this but, apparently, he’s dead. And Branagh’s line was busy.

sue hanes said...

SR - no you go girl

SR said...

Ms. Hanes,
Correct me if I have misunderstood you, but I think you may have misunderstood me. The phrase 'You go girl' is a positive reinforcement meant to bolster you - like a 'high-five' as it were. If you indeed understood that this is what I was trying to do, you can ignore this missive.

Your Friendly Fellow Blogger said...

Ok, i'm a bit late to this dog fight but I'm going to put in my 2 cents anyway.

As a fellow blogger and one who has admired Joe for a long time, I'd like to say that frankly I've been sick and tired of the way that both of these liberal a-holes Ducky and XO have been coming here on a daily basis and confrunting joe on whatever he has to say. But apparently they get a thrill out of it.
But today this a-hole XO has gone a bit far in what he did and what he said in todays post. And i'm wondering why a nice guy like Joe has to take this crap from them?
I for one would like to see Joe throw the two of them the hell out and ban their disgusting behavior for good.
Thank You.

Z said...

um...may I just add that I thought the Klavan video was terrific, as usual?

What the heck is going on otherwise here at Joe's?
I think I'll go back to "whence I came from!" and duck for now! :-)

SR said...

Come on folks!
It's 'from whence I came'.
Adding the word 'from' at the end is redundant; 'from whence I came from'.
Removing the first 'from' is just satanic; 'whence I came from'.

Sheesh, when you Colonies revolted you lost a lot of your grasp of the Queen's English as well it would seem.

Then again, America rules the world so its version of English, however 'Satanic', should prevail.

I'm now off, from whence I came from, until Saturday.
Thank you Mr. J.J. Politico for the forum

sue hanes said...

SR - I did indeed understand what you meant by 'you go girl' for that is the highest compliment that I give to other women - and I took it as such from you.

And I thank you for it. It means a lot to me.

My response 'no you go girl'
was meant to mean:

I return the compliment to you
many times over Aquarina.

And I would like to say also that if Joe's Blog were a woman - I would say to Joe's Blog:

you go girl

KnuckledragginAndI'mFeelinNoPain said...

sue hanes are you still in La-La land?

Joe said...

Sheeesh! I go off to work and you guys go on the attack...against each other!

I came home to quite a party, it seems.

Two things I hate are redundancy and repetition.

Joe said...

Oh! And I have nothing against XO other than his obtusiveness, his incessant missing of the point of my posts, his inability to read, his ad hominimisms, and his liberalism.

Well, maybe a few more things, but I can't think of them right now. I'm tired. I just got home from work.

SR: I knew you were a "girl" because I could not understand what you were saying.

I understand mature, intelligent, wonderful women who organize their thoughts in a coherent manner. But you I have to at least wonder about.

DR: The liberal MSM is about to pick our Republican candidate for us.

YFFB: Aw...don't take ole XO and Ducky too seriously. He just likes to be obtusive and to stir up whatever sludge he can.

Z: I don't blame you for going back to from whence you came from.

I would, too, but I am already here.

KAIFNP: She has made that her permanant domicile.

Joe said...

Craig: You are absolutely right abut the Palmetto State, of course.

(Man...that was hard to say).

Xavier Onassis said...

Joe - My foul mouth. You forgot to mention that. Hey, I wouldn't want to subject you to reading what I actually posted on my blog. But other than calling you a "right wing nut job" (which, ya know, ya are!) there was no insult to you. I even said that I respect the fact that unlike most other right wing nut job blogs I've visited, you don't delete comments with dissenting opinions and you don't just block people from commenting.

What caused such a kerfuffle was when I posted verbatim quotes of comments left on my blog from some of your rabid followers. I then pointed out that these are the type of people who vote for Republicans.

Well, that's when the feces hit the air circulation device and hilarity ensued!

Sorry you missed all the excitement. It was like being at the zoo watching the monkeys fling poop at each other while I sat back with a bag of popcorn and watched.

Man! What a bunch of rubes! Good times.

sue hanes said...

Knuckledraggin' - Oh no!

I'm just puffin' on my bong.

sue hanes said...

Joe - I would like to say this about your Blog:

when you're hot - you're hot

Ducky's here said...

Obtusive? Did you make that up, Joe.

Joe said...

XO: I didn't miss it.

Joe said...

Ducky: Yep.

Ducky's here said...

Joe here's a quiz. What's the difference between a private equity firm (Bain Kapital) and a venture capitalist.

It's an important distinction and understanding it may make you a better informed voter. Hint: A clown like Klavan won't help.

Do a little digging and reading. Remember, the left is here to help you live the life of the mind.
