The election victory of Barack Hussein Obama II removes that mental asterisk when one tells a minority child, “You can grow up to be anything you want — even President of the United States.” This change will have a lasting impact on American society in ways which could ultimately reduce minority Americans’ reliance on the Democrat party’s dependency politics. For now it means that as President, he will have a built-in core of supporters who are unlikely to be shaken by his administration responses to any world or domestic crisis.

Analysis of internals in the polling just prior to Election Day, show that support swung to Barack Hussein Obama II from voters over age 65 — many of whom have lost as much as 40% of their retirement stock portfolios this year. As the stock market went down, his numbers went up. This was an election driven by fears over the economy. Without regard or consideration for race, these voters do what voters usually do in such situations — they elected the party out of power.

Many of his key advisors personally engineered the subprime mortgage debacle — a fact downplayed by the mainstream Democrat-sustaining media. The bailout bill recently passed by Congress gives massive administrative power and leeway over the terms of mortgages to the incoming administration. The crowd which created the crisis has been empowered by the crisis.

The carbon credits trading system that Barack Hussein Obama II proposes will result in millions of dollars transferred from genuine energy providers to so-called alternative energy providers — many organized solely for the purpose of collecting government subsidies. Also, billions of dollars would be given to Russia if the discredited Kyoto Protocol Carbon Emission Standards are adopted. The one exception to any clean energy plan will be nuclear power — it actually works so it must be rejected. The result will be higher electricity costs and the elimination of coal-fired electric generation — something that he pledged to bring about in a long-suppressed interview on 17th January, 2008, with the Editorial Board of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Here are some other coming attractions:

A ban on offshore oil drilling. The Democrat-controlled Congress will likely reïnstate the recently lapsed prohibition. If allowed to pass, no offshore drilling means Americans will continue to transfer $700 billion per year to hostile foreign oil producers.
Amnesty for illegal immigrants. The resulting new voters could cement Democrat majorities in several states. Any amnesty plan will begin a new wave of illegal immigration.
Nationalized health care. Soon America will be emulating the failed Hawai‘i model of health care. Canadians now flocking to border hospitals in Buffalo, Détroit, and Seattle to escape their own failed socialized health system will have nowhere to turn for medical care. Everybody will have an equal right to wait in long lines for rationed care.
Higher taxes. Where will the threshold be: $250,000? $200,000? $150,000? $120,000? $42,000? Whatever it is, America’s most productive citizens and professionals will be penalized for their success. Tax money will go into the pockets of the politically connected who claim to help the poor. The economy will shrink as productive people are discouraged from achievement.
Global warming embraced. Barack Hussein Obama II actually claims to believe in global warming. Tightened US environmental restrictions which treat CO2 as pollution will drive out more manufacturing jobs and grow the US trade deficit which enriches and empowers China.
North American Free Trade Agreement. If he is actually foolish enough to reopen NAFTA — as he has promised — Canadians will demand to be released from their commitment to sell all their oil to the USA. This will further expand our dependence on hostile oil-producing nations.
No secret ballots. Card-check “elections” will allow union thugs to intimidate workers into signing. Unions will win control of workplaces without a secret ballot election. Early targets will include Wal-Mart, Mc Donald’s and other large companies where workers have been resistant to organizing attempts. This will result in more captive voters, small businesses closed and union organizers serving as a harassment squad on behalf of organized crime and against political enemies. This will face court challenge because of its patently anti-democratic nature.

Many members of the U.S. Armed Forces identify the election result as a national rejection of their service. Contacts with military families, if typical, show that within hours of the election, thousands of career military personnel have already begun planning to leave the service. Reënlistment rates will fall off sharply. This process will be accelerated if Barack Hussein Obama II chooses to send U.S. forces into Darfur or other places where the United States of America has no direct national interest. Inheriting two wars, he has campaigned on a pledge to sharply reduce military spending and abandon key systems such as missile defense technology. Political correctness will likely be promoted and “Don’t Ask - Don’t Tell” will be likely abolished in favour of a policy of allowing openly gay personnel.

The fine job done by our troops — over the objection of Barack Hussein Obama II and other Democrats — means it is probably too late to resuscitate al-Qa’ida in Iraq (تنظيم قاعدة الجهاد في بلاد الرافدين), but Iranian-backed Iraqi Shi’a (شيعة‎) forces are completely capable of restarting their war against Iraqi Sunni (أهل السنة‎). Combined with Iranian nuclear ambitions, this is a quick recipe for a disaster in the Middle East.

In spite of this reality, Barack Hussein Obama II has pledged to withdraw U.S. troops on a timetable with little regard of the outcome on the ground.

Iran will get nuclear weapons unless Israel chooses to act. Islamist efforts against the United States of America will continue to be two-pronged: Political Islamists will demand more special rights for Islam in the United States whilst violent Islam will carry out more terror attacks in order to test our will. The new president’s response to political Islam? In The Audacity of Hope (pg 261), Barack Hussein Obama II writes: “In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans — for example — have a more urgent quality … I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

Al-Qa’ida tested William Jefferson Clinton with the first 1993 World Trade Center attack. He failed the test and the result was eight years of Islamic war on America. George Walker Bush was tested by the 11th September, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon. He passed the test and liberated Afghanistan and Iraq from radical Islam and dictatorship. If Barack Hussein Obama II is similarly tested, his campaign rhetoric suggests he will react as William Jefferson Clinton did.

Vice-President-Elect Joseph Biden told several late October campaign rallies: “It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We’re about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don’t remember anything else I said. Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy. (sic)

“I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate … And he’s gonna need help. And the kind of help he’s gonna need is, he’s gonna need you — not financially to help him — we’re gonna need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him. Because it’s not gonna be apparent initially, it’s not gonna be apparent that we’re right.”
Now, doesn’t that sound reässuring?

The morning after Election Day, Russia announced it was deploying missiles in Europe in opposition to the deployment of US-NATO anti-missile systems aimed at protecting Europe from Iran. In an 87-minute speech, Russian President Dimitri Medvedev did not mention Barack Hussein Obama II even once. Hmmm …

BHO continues to show what a rank amateur he is.

Barack Hussein Obama II, in announcing the bankruptcy of General Motors this past Monday (01JUN09), spoke directly all those who would lose their jobs and their livelihoods. “I want you to know that what you’re doing is making a sacrifice for the next generation — a sacrifice you may not have chose to make but a sacrifice you were nevertheless called to make so that your children and all of our children can grow up in an America that still makes things; that still builds cars; that still strives for a better future.”

Heroic sacrifice requires volunteerism, or at least an element of extraordinary choice. However, Obama is fond of forcing Americans into sacrificing themselves at a time and place of his choosing. He names the time and the place — and you are expected to put your neck on his altar. Pass the Barry-flavoured Kool-Aid.

Obama’s sacrificial ideology is particularly egregious because it targets minority groups who can do nothing to defend themselves. Obama targets the taxpaying minority, forcing them to pay for bank bailouts and auto-industry gratuities whilst falsely promising that taxpayers will earn that money back. He targets GM bondholders, the same folks whose retirement money has been keeping the ailing carmaker afloat; his new bankruptcy plan makes their holdings worthless. He demonizes Chrysler’s investors as “speculators” and attempts to portray them as villains in Mopar’s demise. He forces banks to take TARP money, then defenestrates bank chiefs and caps executive pay.

It would be one thing if Obama expected all Americans to sacrifice equally. Clearly, however, he does not. He, for one, isn’t willing to sacrifice — he admonishes corporate leaders about using private jets and visiting places like Las Vegas or Hawai‘i yet can spend $24,000 of taxpayer (read that OUR) money to take his wife on a date to New York City. Obama doesn’t expect his allies to sacrifice either. The United Auto Workers, whom Obama has praised for its “sacrifice,” now owns a majority of Crisisler and a huge chunk of Government Motors; not coincidentally, UAW gave millions to Obama’s campaign. Obama refused to bail out California unless it revoked pay cuts for members of the Service Employees International Union; not coincidentally, SEIU gave $33 million to Obama’s campaign.

Obama’s self-centered ideas of surrender — sacrifice yourself on Obama’s behalf or he’ll sacrifice you — doesn’t stop at the water’s edge. Our foreign allies are feeling similar pressure to sacrifice themselves for Obama’s glory:

• He presses Israel to stop building new houses in Jewish Jerusalem while encouraging Palestinian Arabs to build illegal settlements within Jerusalem.
• He tacitly allows Iran to develop nuclear weapons and reaches out to the illegitimate mullahs while stifling any freedom movement within Iran.
• He allows China to violate human rights while offering them the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval for their supposed work on global warming — all in order to entice China to keep buying our debt.

Obama is bound to lead America to ruin precisely because of the sacrifices he is forcing upon the most productive Americans and our most important allies. Sacrifice, it seems, is only to be made by those who least deserve to make it.

Barack Hussein Obama II has received yet another venerating adulation from his state-controlled news stenographers. Gushing over the Mid-East Apologypalooza II Tour’s Cairo speech, Newsweek editor, Evan Thomas, took liberal media genuflecting to a whole new level, declaring: “I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above — above the world, he’s sort of God.”

Thomas, appearing on MSNBC’s Hardball with Chris Matthews, was reacting to a preceding monologue in which Matthews, still feeling thrills going up his leg, praised Obama’s speech: “I think the President’s speech yesterday was the reason we Americans elected him. It was grand. It was positive. Hopeful — but what I liked about the President’s speech in Cairo was that it showed a complete humility — The question now is whether the President we elected and spoke for us so grandly yesterday can carry out the great vision he gave us and to the world.”

Thomas elaborated on his Obama as God patronization explaining: “He’s going to bring all different sides together — He doesn’t even use the word ‘terror;’ he uses ‘extremism.’” He uses extremism all right. Not only in his newspeak way of renaming truths but in the literal sense of friends and associates, mentors, social engineering programmes, even Supreme Court Justice nominees.

At least Thomas got one point correct: Ronald Reagan was all about America.

Barack Hussein Obama II has conquered the tobacco industry, even if he has yet to conquer his own cigarette addiction. His signature adds to the list of huge, nationally significant industries that have come under greater collective government supervision since his inauguration: banking, check; housing, check; automobiles, check; tobacco, check; healthcare, stay tuned!

The Senate voted overwhelmingly last Thursday (11JUN09) to give FDA regulators new powers. Since a lot of people do not like tobacco products anyway, there was much excitement this time over the government mandating stricter limitations on the nicotine in cigarettes, drastically curtailing adverts that glorify tobacco, omitting certain verbiage and banning flavoured products aimed at spreading the habit to young people. “This is a bill that will protect children and will protect America,” said Sen. Dick Durbin [D-IL], a devoted supporter. The government will finally get control of the tobacco industry: And what does the government do to industries it controls? It runs them into the ground and destroys them. So?

The question over tobacco use, along with the addictiveness of nicotine, has been debated ad nauseam but this action does pose an interesting conundrum: Less nicotine per cigarette could actually increase the number of cigarettes people smoke; or the administration will successfully alter smokers’ behaviour and consumption is reduced. The latter would be good — or would it?

The danger of running the tobacco industry into the ground is it is one of the greatest sources of revenue for the federal government as well as the tobacco-producing states. If the federal government destroys this business — in what Obama professes as being in the public’s interest — and the taxes wither, the government has to collect it elsewhere. Think about it: If you do not smoke and you are happy that this, somehow, will improve the health circumstances in America, you will still have to ante up to pay the difference. So be careful for what you wish.

Barack Hussein Obama II expects his economic stimulus bill to create 600,000 jobs over the next 100 days despite most economists’ expectations that the economy will continue hemorrhaging jobs for the foreseeable future. Whereas the labour market collapsed in a matter of months, the return to peak employment will neither be as uniform nor as swift. Only six metropolitan areas are expected to regain their pre-recession employment levels by the end of 2009 (green on the map), according to projections from IHS Global Insight, a leading economic forecaster.

Many of the nation’s counties — including 286 of the 325 metropolitan areas covered in the IHS analysis — are not likely to regain their pre-recession employment levels until at least 2012, with 112 of those probably not return until 2014 or later. Certainly it is just a sheer coincidence that all of the areas which will not see jobs return to pre-recession levels until 2012-2014 (orange, pink and red on the map) are liberal strongholds with Democrat mayors, Democrat city or county councils, and a Democrat populous; yes, just a coincidence.

Barack Hussein Obama II has rammed his ambitious agenda on the American public over the past five months but the latest scheme to punish the success of our country may even make the United States a second-rate economic power. It is potentially more damaging than the $787 billion stimulus, his proposed huge increases in federal spending and corresponding increases in the national debt, the government’s occupation of GM and Chrysler, and his planned tax hikes on the wealthy - combined.

HR 2454, the American Clean Energy and Security Act, which the House of Representatives passed with the narrowest of majorities late Friday evening (26JUN09), is filled with so many ironies that the whole situation would be hilarious were it not a looming disaster. The bill, written by House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Henry Waxman [D-CA] and Representative Edward Markey [D-MA] and commonly known as cap-and-trade, is the biggest tax increase in the history of the world, the largest government intrusion in people’s lives since World War II — the last time energy was rationed — and, at 1201 pages, another massive unread bill.

It’s supposed to be about saving us from global warming, yet its supporters have stopped talking about global warming. This might be because global temperatures stopped rising a decade ago and pollsters have advised Democrats to quit talking about global warming and green jobs. Requiring that greenhouse gases be reduced by 83 percent below 2005 levels by 2050 is just the start.

The EPA and the Congressional Budget Office have estimated we can save the planet “for the cost of a postage stamp” a day with cap-and-trade. If this was true, why did Democrats on the Energy and Commerce Committee defeat Republican amendments to suspend Waxman-Markey if gasoline reached five dollars a gallon, electric rates doubled or unemployment topped fifteen percent?

For years, proponents for major climate legislation have blamed Big Oil, King Coal and others corporate special interests. Yet a major force behind the Waxman-Markey bill is the United States Climate Partnership — whose members include two dozen corporations such as Alcoa, BP, Caterpillar, Dow, Duke Energy, DuPont, Exelon, Ford, GE, General Motors, PepsiCo, PG&E and Shell Oil — and some of the same environmental pressure groups that blame big business for stymieing energy-rationing legislation. In congressional testimony, several USCAP companies’ CEOs said that passing Waxman-Markey was imperative but they would have to oppose it if they had to buy the ration coupons at auction rather than be given them for free.

The unacknowledged truth in this charade is that the real reason for giving the ration coupons away is to buy enough political support to pass the bill. Obama admitted during the campaign last year that, “… under my plan of a cap-and-trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.” Yet 52,9% of the voters blindly cast their ballots for this self-centred egotistical socialist. This is a shameful racket that is all about short-term windfall profits. Al Gore will be set to make hundreds of millions of dollars from his investments in alternative energy companies if Waxman-Markey makes them profitable. Yes, some people are going to become very wealthy from cap-and-trade; it isn’t going to be consumers.

I think places like Florida are about to get more crowded as higher energy costs will really hit northerners hard in coming winters.

Yeah, this agenda is our economic doom. Socialism itself is a guarantee of poverty for all. This energy policy disaster will guarantee that mass poverty may be worse than expected, as people stop buying basic food just to heat their house or run their computer.

Yes, we need to ween our dependence on foreign oil and develop other forms of energy (I won't say "alternative" due to the crap it has come to mean), but there are much, much better approaches that will lead to mass prosperity, rather than mass poverty.

But what do I know, I'm just a independent-deep-thinking science nerd and not on the brainwashed liberal bandwagon?

Barack Hussein Obama II has one strong challenger to his economic Stimulus legislation: himself. Listen as he first promises — in January — that the Stimulus was designed to IMMEDIATELY stimulate the economy and he reïnstates his claim in April; in July, he declares that the Stimulus has done its job! Yet, when his Stimulus actually fails to perform, he says he never intended the Stimulus to have an immediate impact.

Perhaps one of the TelePrompTer readers is really Barry Soetoro! Hmmm …

Barack Hussein Obama II is taking the practice of naming White House special representatives and special envoys to new heights. In fact, this administration surpassed the Romanov Dynasty in its production of czars by ensconcing itself with no less than 33 — with three more in proposal — including an admitted radical communist and another who advocates homosexuality in public schools! In fairness, eight of the positions were carried from previous administrations and are marked with asterisks; but why have so many reduplications of responsibilities’?

These czars serve at the pleasure of the Өъдмα Иαтюŋ. Only six received a Senate confirmation and most of their activities shadow those that would normally take place in a cabinet office (all of whom, down to the assistant secretary level, must be confirmed by the Senate). Obama is superseding his own cabinet people! Even party loyalists Sen. Robert Carlyle Byrd (D-WV) and Rep. Steny Hamilton Hoyer (D-MD) are upset about this. At the extreme end of thought, there is a growing concern that we have an alternate government in waiting poised to take over the respective positions once the constitutionally placed governing body is deemed ineffective. Crazy? Hell yes! So was 1932 Germany.

It is the executive power. The man is into executive power. He has never been an executive but that’s all right; he is one now and he likes it. He will gain and grab and amass as much executive power as he possibly can because this is his one chance.

He is a statist; he is an authoritarian. He does not want to govern, he wants to rule.

One questio. So how is that HOPE AND CHANGE thing working for you?
I am really hoping he'll change.
How about you?

Barack Hussein Obama II thinks that America spends too much on healthcare so we need to spend more. He wants to add more people to the system, by force if necessary. He wants to compel insurance companies to provide more benefits to anybody-and-everybody; but we spend too much on healthcare! Everyone — with obvious exception to the politbüro — has to sacrifice, particularly mom and dad, granddad, grandma; but they won’t mind. Of course he would never ration healthcare. He loves our seniors!

Yet Тђз Өъάмα Иαтюй is still going to cut Medicare because he supports Medicare and will cut benefits to seniors because he love our seniors. He is dumbfounded at all this talk about the government taking over healthcare — more fear mongering? No. He will simply put Big Government in charge of overseeing the insurance companies to make sure they don?t cheat and swindle you. That’s right: The same politicians and bureaucracy that stole trillions from the Social Security trust fund to pay for ever more spending — and the same politicians and bureaucracy that stole trillions of dollars from the Medicare trust fund — will use their carefully honed skills and experience to ensure that the private insurance companies treat you fairly.

Big Government will tell these companies who must be covered; what they have to charge, what they cannot charge and what benefits they have to offer; how they have to cover pre-existing conditions; and if they fail to do exactly what Big Government says, Big Government will close them down — to protect you. This doesn’t mean you have to change your insurance company. Big Government would never tell you to drop your insurance if you like it. No. What Big Government will do is put your insurer out of business. See the difference? After all, Barack Hussein Obama II and his Chicago friends are here to change Washington.

These sǝʌıssǝɹƃoɹd want to increase competition by destroying it. They want to grow jobs by killing employment. Their stimulus recovery is going just as planned: Real unemployment is now at 16.8% and rising. This is the way they save the economy from the brink — by killing jobs, killing home ownership and killing private property. This is the way they will create a stable dollar and a prosperous economy — by creating trillions-and-trillions-and-trillions of dollars of new debt. After all, who cares about you as much as Barack Hussein Obama II and his team of tax cheats, crooks and cronies? They know your needs better than you — the proletariat — do. They know how to manage your affairs and your finances better than you do. The proletariat is naïve and ignorant and stupid — and proletariat is you!

The left’s vulgar overplay of the race card and repugnant sexual innuendoes towards free-speaking citizens are the real “bashings” taking place. Witness the disdain in the patter of Sen. Harry Reid and SH Nancy Pelosi with their snarky attempts to suppress honest differences in political philosophies or to stifle debates over the direction this administration wants to take our country. Consider the recent condescending tones of Rep. Alan Grayson’s Die Quickly speech. There are no decipherable conservative values here because Тђє Өъαмд Иαтюŋ has none.

This thread shines a bright light on the audacious and arrogant ways the current president and Congress have conducted an unprecedented assault on American traditions and the ludicrous promotions for his cult of personality, albeit at times in a calculatingly bombastic delivery.

This president’s radical friends, associates and mentors are well documented. Instead of celebrating America’s exceptional accomplishments, he apologizes. He virtually strangles the tourist industries in Nevada, Hawai‘i and Florida with his irresponsible words, then jet-sets his wife to a “night on the town” in New York City. His economic stimulus programme results in even higher unemployment and threatens inflation. He can sell the HUMMER brand to the Chinese Communists but cannot sell Saturn LLC to an American. His analysis on the Cambridge arrest comes swiftly and surely, yet he is naïve of any ACORN corruption. He rushes his billion/trillion dollar spending bills through Congress but hems-and-haws over sending reïnforcement troops to Afghanistan where our soldiers are dying — proffering in Copenhagen with the missus for the Olympics is more important.* He backs a dictator in Honduras — José Manuel Zelaya Rosales — whilst turning his back on democracies in Poland and the Czech Republic. He accepts gifts from Hugo Rafael Chávez-Frías and sits attentively for the snarly anti-American rants of José Daniel Ortega-Saavedra and Mu′ammar al-Qaḏāfī but is tone-deaf to his own countrymen. He is open to conversations with Mahmūd Ahmadinezhād yet has no time for Gordon Brown or the Dalai Lama. If only Barack Hussein Obama II would treat America and its allies as well as he does its enemies.

The upside-down ǝʌıssǝɹƃoɹd left is now threatening our health and they are threatening the health of our children: If you do not comply with their healthcare scheme, you will not be able to get your children the medicine they need. Remember, the Democrats are the party of abortion. They are the party of euthanasia. They are pushing OBAMAsCARE that, with its single-payer “public option” and inevitable rationing of services, will affect the senior citizens who are maybe not as useful to the society (or the Democrat National Committee) as they should be. All the while, government is forcing greater dependency on the public dole. Whereas the basic conservative American value would arguably be Liberty to Succeed, it is in direct contrast to the basic liberal American value, Protection from Failure.

* Sudden thought: For the first time in their adult lifetimes, the Obamas will have to speak really proud of their country. Remember that it is not the IOC but rather the IOU they have with Mayor Daley and the Chicago Democratic Machine.

This is Obama’s America: The economic tsunami washing over metropolitan Détroit swept its casualties of socialism to the doors of Cobo Center this past Wednesday. Over 35,000 people, so desperate for help with mortgage and utility bills, queued for a share of $15.2 million in federal stimulus ФБΛМДъцскѕ. “Threats were made, fights broke out and people were nearly trampled,” reported the city’s Free Press. These are the model citizens in Barack “So Vain” Obama’s vision: People who would be wealthy and rich to-day were it not for the achievers of this society.

The backwards-thinking ƨзviƨƨзяgoяq look at these people as victims of an unjust and immoral country and their Anointed One is going to make sure they think He is making it all good for them; and they all do. The model citizen for Barack Hussein Obama II and the Democrat Party is naïve, uninformed and completely dependent; and Détroit is the model city for American socialism. The city has been ruled for 40 years by Democrats in a state controlled by Democrats.

REPORTER: Did you get an application to fill out yet?
WOMAN: I sure did; and I filled it out and I am waiting to see what the results are going to be.
REPORTER: Will you know to-day how much money you’re getting?
WOMAN: No, I won’t, but I’m waiting for a phone call.
REPORTER: Where’s the money coming from?
WOMAN: I believe it’s coming from the City of Détroit or the state.
REPORTER: Where did they get it from?
WOMAN: Some funds that was forgiven [sic] by Obama.
REPORTER: … And where did Obama get the funds?
WOMAN: Obama getting the funds from … Ummm, I have no idea, to tell you the truth. He’s the president.
REPORTER: In downtown Détroit: Ken Rogulski, WJR News.

REPORTER: Why are you here?
WOMAN № 1: To get some money.
REPORTER: What kind of money?
WOMAN № 1: Obama money.
REPORTER: Where’s it coming from?
WOMAN № 1: Obama.

(laughter) I don’t know where he got it from, but he givin’ it to us, to help us.

NobeLΘLaureate indeed!

Barack Hussein Obama II is the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize recipient for accomplishing …? Let’s review the highlights of his administration from Inauguration Day to the Nomination Due Date:

Day 1 • Barack Hussein Obama II takes office.
Day 2 • Promises transparency as Senate grills non-taxpaying appointees.
Day 3 • Signs executive order promising GTMO closure.
Day 4 • Signs, sans press (or transparency), executive order funding foreign abortions.
Day 5 • Sternly warns the nation of consequences if Stimulus Bill isn’t past.
Day 6 • Spends Sunday with family.
Day 7 • Appears on al-‛Arabīyah TV.
Day 8 • Visits Capitol Hill.
Day 9 • Congratulates Congress for passing Stimulus Bill.
Day 10 • Calls corporate executives shameless for pocketing bailout monies.
Day 11 • Appoints VP to head middle-class task force.
Day 12 • Jokes at annual Alfalfa Dinner; NPP nominations due in Oslo.

Too many times, the Nobels fredspris’ impact is nothing more than the Norwegian parliamentary committee’s calculated annual injection of socialistic control over international policies. Woodrow Wilson (1919) bungled the Treaty of Versailles and League of Nations, setting the stage for WWII. Lê Ðức Thọ (1973, refused) oversaw the communist insurgency against South Việtnam. Yāsir Arafāt (1994) was the PLO leader and a renowned terrorist. Al Gore (2007) continues to profiteer his “global-warming” crusade.

Meanwhile, Íngrid Betancourt-Pulecio was kidnapped whilst campaigning for the Columbian presidency and held 2321 days; she didn’t win. Hú Jiā focused his work on HIV/AIDS, environmentalism and democracy in the PRC, being arrested or detained several times by Běijīng authorities; he didn’t win. Dr. Denïs Mukwege treated over 21,000 women gang-raped by Congolese militia during the 12-Year War; he didn’t win. Dr. Sima Samar kept her Afghan girls’ schools and clinics open during the most repressive days of the Ṭālibān; she didn’t win.

Ho‘omaika‘i ‘ana Barack Hussein Obama II: you won! Now — again — what’ve you accomplished? However, now with the NPP yoke around his neck, how will Barack Hussein Obama II prosecute the Afghan War and not be just another international hypocrite? NobeLOLaureate indeed.

Barack Hussein Obama II continues to enjoy his nonspecific secular зviƨƨзяgoяq winter solstice holiday with family and friends in not one but three $4000-per-night beachfront homes on O‘ahu whilst the “ever-concerned-for-the-little-people” Nancy Pelosi [D-CA] luxuriates in the $10,000-per-night Presidential Suite at the Four Seasons Hualālai resort on Hawai‘i. Is “Fancy Nancy” upstaging the messiah-in-chief? Certainly the spin is that it’s not on the taxpayers’ dime (wink).


Suggestion: Go to Truman’s Key West home. It’s closer
to DC and closer to your buddies, the Castro Brothers.

Pelosi’s visit has been hidden by local and national media for nearly a week. This contrasts strikingly to the treatment afforded to another high profile Hawai‘i vacationer — a private citizen by the name of Sarah Palin. Whilst attempting to relax at a resort on Maui earlier this month, she, husband Todd and their children found themselves hounded by paparazzi hungry for the photograph bounties offered by TMZ.com, the website for pro-Obama gossip and other Hollywood sleaze. The Palins were forced to leave. “Todd and I have since cut our vacation short because the incognito attempts didn’t work and fellow vacationers were bothered for the two days we spent in the sun.”


Her Royal HighANUS Princess Nancy

The contrast between the reverential privacy granted Obama and Pelosi, and the petty harassment aimed at Palin, is an element of the ongoing decades-long campaign of politically correct thought reform aimed at all Americans. The message is simple: Toe the line or be hounded out of our circles.

No one will reveal how Pelosi arrived on island: Her controversial military transport — her personal airline — is not immediately visible amidst the forest of private jets at Keāhole-Kona International Airport. The Boxing Day edition of the Hawai‘i Tribune-Herald featured a front-page photograph of a USAF jet at General Lyman / Hilo International Airport with a caption dubbing it Air Force Two, but this was quickly dismissed as a “reserve transport” for the president.

What is certain is that the Island of Hawai‘i has been hard hit by shrinking tax receipts caused by the recession. As the City and County of Honolulu experiences with each presidential visit, Hawai‘i County is being burdened with escorting Pelosi with local police officers. The county offices would not release the actual number of escort officers, the amount of regular and overtime hours they are dedicating to her security detail, their costs to local taxpayers or whether they were being pulled from other duties. Chris Loo, media specialist for the Hawai‘i County Police Department, writes: “After the visit is pau, you may send a written request to the chief to seek information about any costs incurred by the county.”

Meanwhile, it’s Festivus for the rest of us …

One of President Obama's ways of funding his health care bill is taxing people's health insurance. Fox News just showed an Obama campaign commercial where he accused McCain of wanting to tax health insurance. I think it's called hypocrisy Mr. President.

What can a cartoon — produced in 1948 — teach that’s of any value to-day? Pay close attention; and keep in mind that this was produced shortly after the end of the FDR era of entitlements.


A nod to HILO_GUY for bringing this wonderful snippet of history to our attention.

“Make Mine Freedom” is one of a series of films commissioned by the Extension Department of Harding College in Searcy, Arkansas, to create a deeper understanding of various facets that have made the United States the finest place in the world to live.

Though in one sense General McChrystal made a mistake having a "media" outfit like Rolling Stone and there should have been a more clear understanding as to what was off the record, Obama had the legal right to fire McChrystal. But this was the finest and brightest and black ops trained leader who was highly respected by all other officers, Karsi, etc. Thank God that Gen. Petraeus has accepted the reassignment.

I think Obama was right on this issue. McChrystal is a military man and the president is Commander In Chief. Having a talk in private is okay, but publicly you should shut the f*** up. I think McChrystal was right about what he said, but I doubt he would tolerate being questioned by someone of a lower rank.

A general should be able to go in and tell the President that he is flat out wrong or whatever. It has to be private and not in front of "journalists." How he even let Rolling Stone is completely beyond my reality.

The following letter to the editor was written by Mr. Ken Huber of Tawas City, Michigan. It contains a series of comparisons and contrasts which outline many of the double-standards and conditions to which Americans are being subjugated by ɘviƨƨɘяgoяq hypocrites. It was originally printed in the Opinion column of the Iosco County News Herald on 9th June, 2010.

Editor,

Has America become the land of special interest and home of the double standard?

Let’s see: if we lie to the Congress, it’s a felony and if the Congress lies to us it’s just politics; if we dislike a black person, we’re racist and if a black person dislikes whites, it’s their 1st Amendment right; the government spends millions to rehabilitate criminals and they do almost nothing for the victims; in public schools you can teach that homosexuality is OK, but you better not use the word God in the process; you can kill an unborn child, but it is wrong to execute a mass murderer; we don’t burn books in America, we now rewrite them; we got rid of communist and socialist threats by renaming them progressive; we are unable to close our border with Mexico, but have no problem protecting the 38th parallel in Korea; if you protest against President Obama’s policies you’re a terrorist, but if you burned an American flag or George Bush in effigy it was your 1st Amendment right.

You can have pornography on TV or the Internet, but you better not put a nativity scene in a public park during Christmas; we have eliminated all criminals in America, they are now called sick people; we can use a human fetus for medical research, but it is wrong to use an animal.

We take money from those who work hard for it and give it to those who don’t want to work; we all support the Constitution, but only when it supports our political ideology; we still have freedom of speech, but only if we are being politically correct; parenting has been replaced with Ritalin and video games; the land of opportunity is now the land of hand outs; the similarity between Hurricane Katrina and the Gulf oil spill is that neither president did anything to help.

And how do we handle a major crisis to-day? The government appoints a committee to determine who’s at fault, then threatens them, passes a law, raises our taxes; tells us the problem is solved so they can get back to their re-election campaign.

What has happened to the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave?

Ken Huber
Tawas City

Amen …

The policy of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, Don’t Pursue was enacted in 1993 during the William Jefferson Clinton Administration and clearly recognized that homosexuals have, and do, serve in the military since the days of Cæsar yet also understands the adverse impact of open homosexuality in the military. In the 103rd Congress, both the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives and the Democrat-controlled Senate voted to pass into law statutory language that affirmed, nearly word-for-word, the long-standing regulations stating that homosexuality is incompatible with military service. Additionally, federal courts have upheld it as constitutional several times.

To-day’s opposition further demonstrates the ‛ƨɘviƨƨɘяgoяq disconnect with their own political party. This very issue has become a lightning rod as the regime of Barrack Hussein Obama II aims to implement another one of their social re-engineering experiments, this time on the American armed forces. The political activists within the homosexual community in the United States have targeted the American military establishment for decades as a means to legitimize their lifestyle. They also exploit the fact that there will be little opposition from the senior military leaders since they have a duty and honour to uphold orders from the (forgive the expression) commander-in-chief; instead, the brass has two choices when confronted with the issue: salute or retire. However, more than 1000 retired flag and general officers — whose numbers include those who have led American forces in every military engagement since WWII — have strongly stated their disapproval to homosexuals openly serving and have attested the issue is not one of individual desires, or of the norms and mores of civilian society.

Often neglected in assessing the impact of homosexuals in the military is the essence of their lifestyle, especially the sexuality aspect. The military — from the barracks to the communal showers, from the foxhole to the close quarters aboard naval vessels — demand an asexual atmosphere. Homosexual men in particular exhibit an appetite for anonymous sex with many partners. Traditional base gathering places — libraries, theatres, bowling alleys, gymnasiums and athletic fields where both active-duty and military dependents frequent — become targets of opportunity. Military families living on base, where the difficulty of having one or both parents away from home creates complexity, will be faced with one more concern regarding the well-being of their children.

Knowing that such social experimentation would likely not be acceptable in the newly elected Congress, the ousted radical-left speaker of the House and the soon-to-be neutered Senate majority leader opted to ramrod a repeal of 10 USC § 654, popularly known as Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, during the current lame duck session. The section recognizes the military as a “specialized society” that is “fundamentally different from civilian life,” requires a unique code of personal conduct and demands “extraordinary sacrifices, including the ultimate sacrifice, in order to provide for the common defense.” The law appreciates that military personnel have always been restricted from and punished for certain forms of self-expression that are permitted in civilian life. These restrictions include limitations on speech, relationships, personal appearance, as well as behaviour.

Opponents to DADT have demanded their right to serve, yet their agenda could not be more transparent: It’s not military service they seek — it’s an attempt to validate and gain recognition of a lifestyle which is distasteful to most Americans that truly drives this movement. The section is just what it says it is: No one is going to ask a soldier if they are homosexual, said soldier is not allowed to admit he/she is, and no one will pursue disciplinary actions. In context it never denies a homosexual from entering the service but only prohibits homosexual activities whilst in uniform. These regulations are tantamount to those regulating heterosexual activities whilst in uniform. Under the policy, a soldier was still allowed to attend homosexual rights rallies and go to homosexual bars, just not in uniform.

The U.S. military is the most capable, dedicated and feared force on the planet. The questions of national security, discipline, morale and readiness — the culture upon which US armed forces’ security depends — has not been addressed. No compelling evidence has been offered by the agitators, only social theory. It is a question we cannot afford to answer in a way that undermines our military. The US Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and Air Force are not laboratories for social experimentation. They are not in any way comparable to the military forces of Canada, Denmark, the Netherlands or other ǝʌıssǝɹƃoɹd nations. Our military has operated perfectly fine with such a policy in place and changing it will only cause upset and corrupt the unit cohesion and honour upon which the service is built.

Andy, being an old veteran I agree with you right down the line. It must me noted, however, that our armed forces survived desegregation in 1948, they survived the suspension of the Selective Service System, the conversion to an all volunteer service, they survived allowing women to serve in combat or close combat support, and we can only hope and pray that they will survive this. We must hope, of course that the gay men and women who serve now and in the future will realize that service is not only a duty, it is also a privilege. We must also hope that in basic training they will absorb the values of the respective services, which are all very similar. I have seen young African Americans who were thugs on the streets of Philadelphia come out of basic training with a new found sense of self worth, a new found sense of responsibility, and a new found sense of pride in themselves as valuable members of a team. The team, the core of the military, whether it is an army or marine core combat infantry squad, a "watch" on a naval vessel, or an Air Force "flight". And not just a few, but virtually all of them (approx 35) in my unit. I have to hope that the young, gay, men and women who serve will have the same results. That training is pretty persuasive. If it does not work, there is always the UCMJ and the catch-all "Conduct Unbecoming a Member of the Armed Forces".

So true. To paraphrase a quote from the past, We have seen the enemy and he is among us.

It is my sincere belief arach Hussein Obama II's singleminded goal is to tear down this nation. After all, in his view, all nations should be equal but, not by raising them to match us but by tearing down the United States to mediocrity at best.

Jim
Just something to think about. The way BO handled the situation in Egypt. A lot of people don't know this and the media surely won't tell the news. His mentor William Ayers just happened to be over their shortly before the protests and unrest happened. A little too much of a coincidence. I agree, he is out to destroy this country. The extreme liberal attitude of him and his other backs are not democrats, they are socialist. JFK's would be called a social conservative today compared to BO. Don't get me started on his butting onto the Wisconsin situation.

Also, don't forget his lack of support for the Iranian students (twice) when they rose up against their fundamentalist, if not radical, theology-based (Muslim) government. Ronald Reagan, and I believe George W. Bush, would have immediately announced U.S. support for those students and their cries for freedom from oppression.

As I remember, Obama did not even denounce the killing of the innocent young woman during the first demonstrations. But, he couldn't wait to support Egypt's overthrow of their president.

And, of course, he quickly backs union protests while criticizing Tea Partiers, or saying he can't even hear them. And, he quickly jumped on Arizona for trying to protect it's status as a soveriegn state.

So let it be written … So it shall be done.

When Barack Hussein Obama II says things, things get done. This is the message echoed ad nauseam from the “alphabet networks” when reporting from the White House; and what this pres**ent does is say stuff.

He’s said the situation in Libya is unacceptable; that’s that. There’s nothing more to be done.

He’s told us we need to live within our means. There, our federal budget problem is resolved.

He’s expressed that he feels terrible about events in Japan. That’s as much as anyone can do.

He’s stated schools and bullies don’t mix; and he’s sent his wife to pound home that message.

He called for gender equality in the home and workplace. Okay, that problem’s been solved.

Oil production in the Gulf is booming because his moratorium led to increased production.

Now, he has also said he won’t rest until there are jobs for all Americans who seek work. So is the unemployment issue eluding us? Well, apparently every American who WANTS a job has one, otherwise BO would be focusing like a laser, right? Phfew, that problem’s solved.

Wow, what a week it was: and don’t forget the arduous task of picking brackets for the NCAA tournament and then videotaping the presentation for ESPN. The guy is overworked as it is; and he hasn’t had a vacation in — what? — a couple months! Now, onto Rio de Janeiro …

Andy, you're being too harsh. After all, while the Middle East and Libya were on fire, he was forced to play golf two weekends in a row, too.

So what he's in Rio? Remember, before the election he said he could multitask - picking the basketball brackets after having just given a speech on Women's History, or some such thing, the weekend proves the point. After all, he also played golf the same weekend he talked about equality for women. Phew!! What a tough schedule.

President Barack H. Obama II
The White House


Dear George,

The Gulf oil spill opened my eyes.

As with Hurricane Katrina, it happened suddenly. I barked out orders. I pounded my desk; but the oil kept flowing. Worse, the nation watched it all on television and said: "Why doesn't the President do something?" "Doesn’t he care?" From then on, I fully understood both the expectations and the limitations of this job.

I ran on "hope and change." I said I would bring the sides together. The American people, I told Republicans who opposed my stimulus plan, have spoken and, "I won."

So without any of the bipartisan support you received for your tax cuts, my stimulus passed and I confidently predicted it would prevent unemployment from reaching 8 percent. It climbed to 10.2 percent.

Without a single Republican vote, we passed ObamaCare but half of the states’ attorneys general filed suit to stop it; and a year after its passage, most Americans want it repealed.

My party lost its House majority and its Senate supermajority. Voters wanted smaller government. Turns out voters wanted to retain the Bush tax rates — even for the rich — which I campaigned against. Again, the American people had spoken.

The morning starts, as you know, with an intelligence briefing. My goodness, does America have enemies — hateful, violent, vicious enemies all over the world who are determined to destroy this nation! Our job is to prevent them from succeeding — all of them, all of the time.

I labeled you a "cowboy," promised humility and offered enemy countries an outstretched hand for their un-clenched fist; but calling the Global War on Terror an "overseas contingency operation" not only failed to deter the Islamo-fascists from wanting to kill us, it suggested a weakness that only strengthened their resolve.

al-Qāʿidah, Hezbollah, Hamas and the mullahs who run Iran, I learned, couldn’t care less that I'm a person of color, born to a Muslim father from Kenya and who lived in Indonesia. They hate us still.

Guantanamo Bay exists for a reason. It imprisons the worst of the worst. No other country will take these terrorists and many former detainees have returned to the fight.

GTMO is among many of your Bush era terror-fighting policies that I not only retained but, in some cases, even expanded. What once seemed reckless and wrongheaded, I now see as prudent attempts to strike that difficult balance between safety and freedom.


I came into this job eight years after September 11, 2001. I cannot imagine 3,000 Americans killed on my watch. I cannot imagine polls showing that 90 percent of us anticipated another attack within 12 months of the first, perhaps with chemical or biological weapons. I can imagine how you must have blamed yourself during those long, dark days, and spent every waking hour asking, "What can I do so this never happens again?"

This brings me to the Iraq War, a mission I once called dumb.

Seventy-six percent of Americans, at the time, supported your decision. You obtained approval from Congress. By contrast, 47 percent support my actions in Libya, less support than for any military action taken in the last 40 years. Unlike you, I did not seek approval from Congress even though I once said the Constitution requires it.

Thanks to the Iraq War, Libya's Muammar al-Qaddafi surrendered his WMD. He poses no direct threat to America and cannot use these terrible weapons on his own people. Saddam Hussein, on the other hand, invaded his neighbors, used chemical weapons on his own people and shot at our planes patrolling the no-fly zones. All 16 of our intelligence agencies thought he possessed stockpiles of WMD, a prospect that threatened to make the 9/11 carnage look small.

I even opposed the surge in Iraq and predicted its failure. I now see this unpopular decision for what it was — one of the most courageous decisions ever made by any of the 43 Americans who have sat behind this desk.

I vividly recall shaking my head during the speech you made to make the case for the dumb war. A disapproving New York Times wrote: "President Bush sketched an expansive vision … Mr. Bush talked about establishing a 'free and peaceful Iraq' that would serve as a 'dramatic and inspiring example' to the entire Arab and Muslim world …"

Now I understand why, in 2008, you signed National Security Presidential Directive #58 — Advancing the Freedom Agenda: "To protect America, we must defeat the ideology of hatred by spreading the hope of freedom. Over the past seven years, this is exactly what the Administration has done."

It began with newly liberated Afghans and Iraqis who risked their lives by leaving their homes to vote for the first time. Your Freedom Agenda ignited the promising, historic hope and change we are now witnessing all throughout the Arab and Muslim world.

You were right. I was wrong. The nation and the world owe you a huge debt of gratitude.

Let's do lunch and then sneak in a round of golf. The Near Beer is on me.

With respect and appreciation,


April 1, 2011

If only, Andy. Yep, such a letter is definitely a BIG april Fool's joke.

Brogue Hussannity O’Bama

Moneygall, a small village in County Offaly, has been suffering an incurable case of OBAMAmania. This roadside hamlet of two pubs, three shops and barely 350 residents has repainted every house, festooned every lamppost and seemingly rebranded every product in preparation for to-day’s visit by the most hysterical … err, historical president ever. Locals have stood in line for hours to receive one of 3000 tickets that will let them meet the first ever Black-White-Hawaiian-Indonesian Qur‛ān-quoting-Christian Muslim-educated Israel-ignoring community-organizing radical-et-cetera-et-cetera now-Irish son.


For the original (un-embeddable) video of this song, CLICK HERE.

“We’ve all been caught up in this dream. Nothing in the village seems real,” said starry-eyed Henry Healy, a 26-year-old accountant for a plumbing firm who discovered four years ago he was one of his closest Irish relatives. He received Ticket № 0001, since he’s an eighth cousin to Obama, the closest blood relative still living in Moneygall. “I’ve been rehearsing what I’m going to say to the president for months in my head. I can’t really believe it’s going to happen.”


Moneygall's Main Street

As Healy spoke, the powerful rotors of two US military helicopters thumped in the distance and a deliveryman arrived with another truckload of spiced Irish fruit bread, called brack, rebranded “Barack’s Brack” for this month and bearing a cartoon portrait of the president.


A limousine in the Ireland motorcade unexpectedly high-centres whilst exiting from a driveway in Dublin.

The village’s name comes from the Irish Muine Gall meaning “foreigners’ thicket.” It seems a bit funny how easily his Irish roots were able to be traced back multiple generations yet it took over 2½ years to produce a validated birth certificate. Nuair a bhíonn na súile na hÉireann ag gol …

BURNT TOAST

Whether it’s because the most historical president ever is oblivious to the humungous faux pas he’s committing by talking over God Save the Queen or it’s his audacious thought of, “They’re playing ‘My Country, 'Tis of Thee’ for ME,” it’s obvious he knows not when to s-t-f-u!


The Queen is not amused.

THE SETTING: As [zero] finished his remarks at Buckingham Palace, he placed his note cards on the table and lifted his glass. “Ladies and gentlemen, please stand with me and raise your glasses as I propose a toast: To Her Majesty the Queen …”

THE GAFFE: At this point, the band launched into the British National Anthem — but the smartest man to hold the presidency continued speaking over the music. “… for the vitality of the special relationship between our peoples and, in the words of Shakespeare, ‘To this blessed plot, this Earth, this realm, this England:’ to the Queen.” She gave such a look! Stunned, he set his glass on the table and stood motionless until the music finished. Then everyone raised their glasses.

Oops! Unlike at American state dinners, the national anthem is traditionally played after each toast in Great Britain. The protocol is simple: “… a toast: Her Majesty the Queen.” When the bandleader hears this, the musicians are cued. Aside from horrendously awkward wording — and the lack of his beloved TelePrompTer — his decision to sally forth with his blathering made for an uncomfortable display by the “neo-Irish” leathcheann.


A proper toast for Her Majesty by a real statesman.

Separated at birth? Respected movie actor Eddie Deezen and wiry wanker Anthony Weiner.

Rep. Anthony “Twitter Twit” Weiner [D-NY09] has resigned his seat in the US Congress after a fortnight of scandal spawned by his lewd and X-rated self-images sent on-line to numerous women, relieved Democratic officials said Thursday. The formal announcement at two o’clock this afternoon was one part mea culpa and one part “I’ll be back …” à la Arnold.

The depravity of A. Weiner, which ultimately led to an early withdrawal and left House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi emotionally frustrated, was not viewed as duplicitous like other sex scandals that have plagued government. Why? Aside from the coddling by the 20th Century media, liberals answer to a different higher authority — hence the apology to Bubba Clinton. A kerfuffle of this magnitude on the right screams of hypocrisy because family values and principles are steadfast planks of the Conservative character; to find a moral equivalency with sǝʌıssǝɹƃoɹd, the contrast between the tax-evading antics of Timothy “Turbo-Tax” Geithner or Charlie “Punta Cana” Rangel and their avocations for higher revenue grubbing from the proletariat comes to mind.

There does definitely seem to be a double-standard for progressives (i.e., Democrats).

While Republicans adhere to normal moral standards the Left celebrates an anything goes, let it all hang out attitude where they MUST be forced to take responsibility for their actions.

Did you notice how, initially aty least, there was no cry from the party leadership for him to step down? Meantime, unless my memory fails me every Republican caught in a scandal was immediately castigated by the Dems.

What a mess!! Now, if only the people in Weiner's district would do the right thing and elect an upstanding and moral person we'd probably get another Republiucan in the Houe of Representatives. But, what are the chances it will happen? I won't hold my breath.

I'm curious on your thoughts on David Vitter

Edward “Ted” Kennedy … our Chap Acquitted senator from Massachusetts … and Mary Jo Kopechne.

Excellent query. The Weiner junk-mail scandal, like the tribulations of Bill Clinton and John Edwards, had less to do with the sexual sensationalism — that sells the story — and more about the vehement denials and audacious posturing in the face of mounting evidence to the contrary (I did not have TEXT with that woman). In contrast, Mark Foley and Christopher Lee immediately “fell on the sword” when confronted with damning allegations of inappropriate behaviour.

The case against Sen. David Vitter [R-LA] was more reprehensible in the eyes of the public — its placement on the indignity spectrum being quite subjective. Yet unlike the similar cases of Eliot Spitzer and John Ensign, Vitter was able to recover due in large to his forthrightness with the public and the press as well as the fact that his indiscretions happened over seven years prior to disclosure; ancient history. The senator made atonements to his family and placed himself before the court of public opinion — that of his constituents in Louisiana — and he was vindicated. Nonetheless, he continues to be the poster boy for ƨɘviƨƨɘяgoяq when they need to excuse their bad conduct and will be hounded by demands for censure at every chance. Anthony “Tony Baloney” Weiner, on the other hand, is simply a nasty piece of work who attempted to play the American citizens for the fools he thinks we are.

“Lean Forward” — a new slogan for MSNBC or the words of a proctologist?

It’s always amazing when a left wing affirmative-action dolt like Maxine Waters has an epiphany, if only before being drawn back into the cushy liberal fold of elitism. Last week, Ms Waters — the scandal-riddled California member of Congress from the haughty Hancock Park district of Los Angeles — suddenly realized that Barack Hussein Obama is ignoring Black neighbourhoods, be it Watts or Oakland, Détroit or Cleveland, St Louis or Atlanta. The most historical first Black president shuns the Black community.

Why? Simple: He knows he already has their vote. Why buy the cow when you get the milk for free? The whole assumption that blocs of voters are dedicated to one candidate or another based on the colour of their skin is, in itself, racist. Yet this type of politicking has been fundamental for the Democяᴀᴛs for decades. Obama knows he has the blind loyalty of the “Black vote” so why waste time worrying about their plight? It’s not like he is going to receive substantial financial support from the inner-cities; hence the snob-knobbing hob-knobbing on Martha’s Vineyard with all those über-rich liberal Caucasian liberals (that’s all right, his other half will understand … and so will Michelle).


Speaking of Ms Waters — wait, it was the cow/milk thing — surely people have noticed by now that the Democяᴀᴛs talk a good campaign but rarely deliver: How’s that War on Poverty working? Those ladies from Détroit are still awaiting that “Obama Stash.” Unfortunately, the money is not free. It’s our tax money with which O and the rest of the sǝʌıssǝɹƃoɹd buy constituents. To that, one has to ask, What is the Difference between Slaves on Plantations and Blacks Who Blindly Vote for Democяᴀᴛs?

The slave owners provided their property free housing, free food, free healthcare, free transportation to the fields and a menial education sufficient to perform the expected tasks; the only thing they demanded from their slaves in return was unquestioning loyalty.

The ɘviƨƨɘяgoяq Democяᴀᴛs, for at least the last half century, have promised their constituents free housing, free food, free healthcare and a menial education sufficient to correctly mark the ballot … and free transportation to a voting booth in their precinct or another when needed.

So Maxine Waters complains about her people not receiving attention from ☭bama (the fact that she sounds like she represents only some in her district will wait another day). The fact is, Blacks are not the only people subjected to this treatment by the Left: Democяᴀᴛs keep the homosexual community in check by scaring them into believing Republicans are evil — the Log Cabin Republicans must know otherwise; Democяᴀᴛs keep Hispanics under control by pushing Spanish instead of helping them assimilate and excel through teaching them English — keep them separated from the rest of American society; Democяᴀᴛs keep women submissive with cultural wedges like abortion, convincing them voting liberal is in their economic interest — and they have activists like Jeaneane Garofalo to do their bidding; Democяᴀᴛs keep the Jewish population in the attic with rhetoric and Nazi-comparisons — despite the unbound compassion and support for Israel found amongst conservatives.


The rant that Herman Cain is paid to be a Republican candidate or that conservative women suffer from Stockholm Syndrome is as repugnant as the racism that exists on the Left. If people blindly vote Democяᴀᴛ year-after-year with never a thought of what have I got to show for my loyalty?, then they are either slaves to the liberals or a damned fool. The Democяᴀᴛ Party dumbs people down, keeps them stupid, keeps them poor and keeps them dependent, all in the name of compassion. It’s one of the most amazing hoaxes and frauds that have ever been achieved. Yet they’ve been getting away with it for 50 years! Do these drones to the Left realize they’ve been complaining about the same things your whole life? That they’ve been grumbling about the same economic circumstances? That they’ve been scared the bogeymen are going to get them but the threats never materialize?

Conservatives recognise every man and woman as an individual: a unique, distinct person with the inalienable ability to be successful. Yes, there are those who do need assistance — a hand up, not a hand-out — and they are willing to assist the helpless but not the clueless.

Andy, your point about the Democrat controlled classes is just the way I feel. And, I believe the public education system (Union) has been very culpable in dumbing down our kids to help keep them down and "in their place."

A friend who blogs ended her blog with the following slogan, "2012 - the end of an error." I think it's kinda catch myself.

Guess I'll have to watch the video when I'm not too distracted to follow the intelligencia Keith and Jeanna talking about howgreat the savior O is and how Herman Cain is an Uncle Tom.
