AG Loretta Lynch is on CNN announcing a Justice Department investigation into the Chicago Police Department’s use of force in recent shootings of young black men. It is interesting to hear the CNN pundits prattle on aimlessly and pointlessly that somehow baseball, hot dogs, apple pie, George W Bush, global warming and Chevrolet are at fault! Yes, it is certainly a tragedy! However, I wonder when it will dawn on them and black Americans that this not taking place in “right-wing, earth-destroying, granny-pushing-off-the-cliff, bible-and-gun-clinging-to conservative America , but rather in a longstanding democratic stronghold; a veritable Alinski-inspired Utopian paradise with very strict gun laws … and one that is brilliantly led by an enlightened Obama administration former member, Rahm Emanuel! Keep on drinking that progressive-liberal cool aid!
On a second note:
Under the Obama administration, ISIS (or ISIL or Daesh or man-caused disasters or overseas contingencies or disgruntled workers or whatever the hell he wants to call radical Islamic terrorism) is growing more and more powerful. Meanwhile back in the good old U.S.A., the U.S. Air Force is running out of bombs! Maybe when the Air Force runs out of bombs, they can start dropping Obama’s bullshit on ISIS and bury them in that. I means, it seems to be working on many Americans!
How I long for the good old days. Do you remember back when it was just so cool to scoff at any and all warnings about new American foreign policies or old potential threats by anybody who actually knew what they were talking about? I remember when highly intelligent, arrogant, Ivory Tower progressive-liberals with no real-world experience or common sense were boldly trashing the comments of anyone one who did not see things their way?
Do you remember the debate where Barack Obama haughtily “schooled” Mitt Romney about his lack of understanding of foreign policy after Romney made comments about the potential threat Russia still presented. How did that work out?
We have unresolved Russian aggression in Ukraine.
Russian bombers are currently flying missions over the Gulf of Mexico
Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua are forming stronger military ties with Russia and can provide bases for Russian combat aircraft and missiles.
I remember when George W. Bush was ridiculed for his comments about the Axis of Evil in which he included Iran, Iraq and North Korea. Today we see:
ISIS / ISIL / DAESH or whatever you want to call it … in Iraq and Syria, forming alliances and sponsoring attacks her in the U.S. Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt and Israel are doing their own thing … tired of waiting for the Anointed One to declare which side of the war on terror he is on. Yes …Yes … I know we are not “at war” with them, however, they are at war with us and have been since the 70s.Obama’s efforts at containment and degradation certainly didn’t stop ISIS fanatics from shooting up a cartoon contest here in the U.S. Tell me …. how do you contain a threat that recruits via twitter and Facebook?
We are facing a nuclear-armed North Korea who’s leader just executed a loyal, longtime senior member of his own government who, by the way, also loyally served his father … by shooting him with an anti-aircraft gun! And for what you might ask? Dozing off in a meeting. And this idiot is just itching for a reason to launch a missile at someone!
We have a president who is so blinded by ideology and so anxious to be seen doing something … that he is willing to sign a disastrous deal with Iran; one that we know they will not adhere to and will practically guarantee them nuclear weapons shortly after he leaves office. Iran’s leaders just keep stringing Obama and Kerry along like a couple of organ grinder monkeys! It is freaking embarrassing!
However, the real icing on the cake is this:
CNN REPORTS U.S. STRATEGY TO CONTAIN ISIS SEEMS TO BE UNRAVELING.
Don’t you have to have some sort of a recognizable strategy … before it can actually begin to unravel? Guess not!!
Interesting comment on the news this evening. When President Bush said that there were chemical weapons in Iraq, all of the worlds intelligence agencies agreed with him. (Well, those that are affiliated with NATO and our allies.) Democrats and Republicans on the intelligence committees also supported this conclusion. When it turned out that these weapons had been moved and were no longer in the country – the media promoted the whole “Bush Lied, People Died” mantra. Now that President Obama has been proven to make multiple statements that are the exact opposite of the truth, and evidence has come out since that he had been briefed on the facts so he absolutely knew that he was not telling the truth the media reaction is: “He misspoke.” Really? Dozens of times, using the same phrase in different situations, specifically as a response to the challenge that the plan would force people out of their current plans? This is misspeaking? Wow. Perhaps ABC, NBC and CBS should get their ombudsmen to publish their definitions of lying as a public service announcement so we all know how to react when politicians are feeding us a load of horse manure. Or is it as simple as: No matter the statement, if it comes from a Republican, it is a lie. The corollary being, no matter how outrageous the lie, if it comes from a Democrat (and it gets proven beyond a reasonable doubt) then it was a mistake. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t blame the politicians for this… this is a failure on the part of the talking head media.. of course our leaders in Washington take advantage of the situation.
My heart and prayers go out to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings, their families, and the City of Boston. Such a heinous attack on innocent civilians is unforgivable. I learned something else from this tragic event. As Sean Hannity has often stated, true journalism in America … is dead! Journalists, at one time, tried to ferret out the TRUTH and report it … consequences be damned! Now … pseudo-journalists rush to be the first to prematurely place blame based on political agenda … and the TRUTH be damned! It is a sad day and further evidence of the declining standards of integrity and morality that is slowly destroying our great country.
Obama ranted and raved in the Rose Garden that the NRA ‘willfully” lied to Congress about Harry Reid‘s “anti-gun bill.” Well, Obama got what he wanted … a vote. Obama lost … and like the petulant little dictator wannabe he is … he was throwing a temper tantrum. Gallup Polls show clearly that only about 4% of Americans are concerned with new gun laws (despite his claim 90% of Americans support his universal background check). The 4.5 million NRA members and 300,000 GOA members all know that the term “universal background check” is simply Obama-speak for “disgraced AG Eric Holder gets a list of all American gun owners.” None of the new regulations and restrictions would have prevented Sandy Hook, or Aurora, or future tragic shootings. They only penalize law-abiding gun owners with arbitrary, silly, and poorly thought out restrictions while ignoring the root causes of these shootings … young people desensitized to extreme violence by graphically violent Hollywood movies and video games, the declining moral fiber of our nation, ignored mental illness, and illegally acquired weapons. I seem to remember the two Columbine killers even had pipe bombs which were already banned (or illegal)! If we continue to follow the Obama, Pelosi, Moore, Reid , Maher, Feinstein plan to end violence in America … we are now going to have to add to our list of assault weapons: backpacks, pressure cookers, boxes of 100 white envelopes, and even possibly fertilizer factories. Have no fear, while the gun-grabbers have suffered a defeat … they will be back! The American people cannot be properly subjugated until they have properly disarmed all of us!
And while Obama and his lap-dog media has successfully shifted America’s attention elsewhere:
U.S. unemployment claims last week jumped 4000 to 352000
U.S. Border Patrol agents have found the remains of three suspected illegal immigrants on South Texas ranches in recent days, adding to a total that is quickly outpacing last year’s numbers.
Mexican drug cartels are listed as the number one organized crime threat in Texas.
Iran and North Korea are racing to see who can launch the first nuke at American territories or Allies.
Radical Islamists who have received huge gifts of cash, 450 Abrams tanks, and a boatload of F18s from our feckless leader are dancing in the streets and singing for joy at the deaths and injuries brought about by the bombings at the Boston Marathon.
Brian Terry’s family still has no answers or satisfaction from Obama, Holder, or the DOJ over the “Fast and Furious” fiasco!
Hmmm! If sequestration and it’s $85 billion dollar budget cut is going to bring financial Armageddon to the United States, why were the $2.5 trillion in spending cuts Obama love to claim he made … so painless? Doesn’t make much sense does it? We are told by the Obama administration that our Beloved Messiah has already reduced the deficit by over $2.5 trillion. This was achieved by cutting spending by over $1.4 trillion and trimming domestic discretionary spending to its lowest level since the Eisenhower administration. We are told that … as a result of these savings and the strengthening economy … the deficit is coming down at the fastest pace of anytime in American history other than the demobilization from World War II.
Wow! Sounds too good to be true! And … that is because it is!
According to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities … Obama justifies his “spending cuts” claims by comparing estimated deficits with the government’s baseline budget projections. However, he must be using a budget that was from some previous administration because, as I recall, there has been no federal budget approved since he was elected to office.
However, that being said … under the government’s “baseline budgeting” rules, budgets are increased every year by around 6% to account for population growth and inflation. On its face, the idea that government spending grows with inflation is not unreasonable. But far too often, it is misused by politicians, who claim a “spending cut” any time the actual increase is less than the automatic increase. Obama therefore can spend 2.5% more each year and claim that he’s cutting spending by 3.5%. I just love this new math!
Also, this $2.5 trillion cut is projected to occur over ten years. Which, in essence, means it will never happen! Nothing binds future officials to follow Obama’s so-called spending cuts! How many politicians that are in office now … will be in office five years from now … never mind ten?
And another thing! If this sequestration (which Obama originally put in place) is truly so bad … why doesn’t Obama simply issue forth with another Executive Order and put it on hold. We all know how much he loves his Imperial Decrees and he uses them judiciously … U.S. Constitution be damned!
The thing is that Obama wants to present the image that he is spending less, cutting deficits and lowering debt! That he is the only one who knows how to spend wisely … and that he is being unjustly accused of excessive spending by those hateful Republicans who simply want to push granny over a cliff in her wheelchair while murdering autistic children! But, this is all one big fantasy! Even through their cool aid created fog, Obama’s followers know that Obama has run trillion-dollar-plus deficits every year he has been in office. Even the liberal drive-by media has reported that fact … they just still blame Bush, ATMs, suicidal lemmings, Kiosks, migrating seagulls, and the Arab Spring!
All of this “progressive-liberal fantasy” becomes painfully obvious if we simply look at Obama’s own budget projections for 2011 to 2022. Obama’s own budget projections are presented in Summary Table S-1 of the 2013 federal budget. You can see for yourself …
You can see the line for “receipts” at the top; which translates to income from taxes and fees. Receipts dropped during the recent “recession” … but somehow, Obama’s budget optimistically projects a rise from $2.3 trillion in 2011 to $5.1 trillion in 2022! This is more than a doubling of tax revenues … which means that either our economy has to quickly grow dramatically … or any future taxes will be extremely painful.
Federal spending also shows a steep upward climb; increasing every year from $3.6 trillion in 2011 to $5.8 trillion in 2022. Do any of you cool aid drinkers out there happen to know how these number’s compare to the budgets of George Bush or even Bill Clinton? Just asking …
In each and one of these years, the federal government will run large annual deficits. Obama’s projection does show a decreasing trend in deficits, falling from the $1.3 trillion to a low of $575 billion in 2018! However, then in 2019 … it starts climbing again. The point to remember is that:
even when you reduce a deficit … you’re still spending more than you take in; and therefore … still increasing the national debt.
The real truth is that, according to Obama’s own projections, over the next ten years (the period for Obama’s much-touted $2.5 trillion reduction in government spending) … taxes, federal spending, and the national debt will actually double. Obama’s rapidly rising budgets are optimistically offset by fanciful revenue projections, but his projections will only hold if we actually experience the 4.3% GDP growth (that is figured into the calculations in Table S-1) every year for the next decade. What is the likelihood of that happening you might ask (If you are cool aid free)? Given our current lack of economic growth and the historical U.S. average of 3.2% growth, … not too good!
One last parting thought! Despite the fact that Obama stated during his first campaign that it was very, very un-Patriotic and un-American of then-President George Bush to do so … we are still, under Obama’s rule … still borrowing 40+ cents of every dollar we spend from the Bank of China! The interest on this debt, as it grows over this ten year period of $2.5 trillion in fake federal spending cuts, will be astronomical! If interest rates happen to spike and China calls in its note, what are we Americans going to do? I guess we will all have to learn to be good little communists and speak Chinese!
You must be really proud! Your husband has added $6 trillion in new debt since taking office. Gas prices are now over $4 per gallon on average. Unemployment has been holding steady over 8% for 4 years (higher if you use the actual numbers), with over 23 million Americans unemployed. There are 47 million are on food stamps. Our U.S. Ambassador was just raped and killed by muslims that your husband has been trying to embrace for 4 years and the middle east is in flaming chaos.
I read some of the letter written to you by Beck Smith, where she says:
I am also ashamed that the first family sees the Presidency as a lottery they won (how many vacations do you need in a year, really?) I have not had a job in two years, and our family would love to have a vacation in Europe, just one, someday. Yet your family has taken over seventeen vacations, at my last count, on the taxes people like me have paid. So, in effect, the middle class of America has been paying for you and your entourage of secretaries and secret service personnel to run around the world, shopping and sightseeing, when we cannot afford to go visit relatives who live in another state. Your husband’s policies have not created any jobs worth talking about, but they have kept businesses from creating jobs. Even a low-paying job would allow us the luxury of going to visit family.
She make a pretty good point … doesn’t she? Well, I know you won’t see it that way!
Are you proud of how the left-wing media selectively edits video to make Romney look bad, then screams about it for a few days, or at least until they are caught and forced to admit that what they were screaming about was in fact – not at all what Romney said. Has this happened 5, 6, 7, or 8 times now? Do we have the most corrupt media in the history of our Nation or what?
It is difficult for some to understand how your husband, a president with the most failure-ridden foreign and domestic policy in modern history, still has 47 percent of the American vote (according to the latest polls). But the answer is actually quite simple. Your husband does have the best propaganda machine since Adolph Hitler. Since 2007, your husband has been building a “cult of personality,” very much like the infamous fascist leaders of recent history. That doesn’t mean he’s a fascist; it doesn’t mean that he’s Hitler, or Mussolini, or Stalin, or Castro. However, his semiotics and iconography are far more in line with those of a fascist dictatorship than a vibrant republic.
Cases in point:
Ronald Reagan never hijacked the American flag for his own iconography. Neither did George W. Bush. or Bill Clinton. Only your husband has utilized the visual methodologies of Hitler’s propaganda machine to forward his political campaign. The same day that your husband’s campaign decided to unleash their newest Obama flag, Jessica Alba, one of your husband’s elitist Hollywood acolytes, issued a letter to his campaign followers urging them to pledge allegiance to Barack Obama.
Sorry folks! This is not America! This is not Liberty and Freedom for All! This is simply put … creepy.
Your husband’s vision for this great nation is about as un-American as you can get. But, despite his hatred of all things American, I am sure you and he both want him to get re-elected! You both certainly do enjoy the lifestyle … the endless world vacations, the countless rounds golf, the parties with Beyoncé and Jay-Z, skipping security briefings to hobnob with the who’s who in liberal elitist land! All paid for by struggling American taxpayers! Now .. that is a pretty sweet deal!
Your husband lamented on nationwide TV that he cannot rule by authoritative fiat and simply bypass Congress and the American people. He actually stated that despite laws enacted by Congress and the American people, he will do whatever he wants! Your husband has presided over an almost complete overthrow of the Constitution. It is a clear manifestation of high treason against the United States of America, but of course your liberal lap-dog media will not point this out and instead makes excuses for what amounts to a socialist coup d’etat. And the cool aid drinkers are so caught up in the “free Obama money” they think they are going to get … they just don’t care.
Mitt Romney was actually right! Approximately 47% of American voters are so drunk on the socialist cool aid, they will not vote for Romney no matter what he does or says! They want their entitlements whether the country can afford them or not! So what if America goes bankrupt and is financially destroyed! So what if our children and grandchildren are left with a crushing debt … just so they get their “free Obama money.” I mean … who are we to expect folks to have to actually work for what they get when they can just simply vote to steal it from somebody else! So … your husband, despite his horrible track record, treasonous activities, endless lies, and anti-American ideology … might actually get re-elected!
And you, Michelle, will have helped bring down the worlds greatest nation … that shining beacon on the hill that brought hardworking LEGAL immigrants to this country following their dreams … a glorious experiment in individual independence and human freedom … a dream you, Michelle, personally helped destroy.
Then … we can all be happy, mindless, little worker bees … pledging allegiance to One Nation Under Socialism! We can live our boring but politically correct and equally mediocre lives; contented with whatever you, your husband, and his followers deem we should have! Chicken McNuggets for all!
Wow! The left-wing progressive democrat’s race baiting soars to new heights! Touré very obviously blindly supports a socialist who is intent on destroying this country, has had three and a half years of failed economic policies, increased unemployment, blamed George Bush, ATMs, Kiosks, Congress, Arab Springs, George Bush, Republicans, George Bush, the Tea Party, Arab Falls, Seagulls, Bill Clinton, under-inflated tires, … oh, and did I mention George Bush … and can’t open his mouth without lying … and who also happens to be black!
So, what does he do? He calls his Messiah’s opponent, Mitt Romney, a racist, that’s what he does!
It does not matter if you simply disagree with Obama’s policies, his political agenda, and his vision for America. If you disagree with Obama, you are racist and, according to Touré, you are engaging in the “niggerization of Barack Obama” because you fear the angry black man! Tell me … who is the true racist here?
Joe Biden makes a blatantly racist comment saying, in effect, that Mitt Romney wants to put black people back “in chains.” Romney states there is no room for that kind of racially charged dialogue in the campaign … and somehow Romney is the racist! Un-freaking-believable! And the lunacy of this logic and Touré’s statements go right over the head of far too many cool aid drinking Americans!
Well … keep it up! You see … Americans are not as dumb as Obama and his Obama-zombies think they are! They are waking up and seeing through this blatant BS!
So …. what is your point? Is it that two wrongs make a right? Sorry Dude. That just does not wash!
George W. Bush was not a conservative Republican. He would probably be considered a moderate, or maybe even a liberal, Republican. Did he spend too much money? Absolutely he did! That is not an excuse for Obama’s tripling down on the same bad fiscal policies! Especially after attacking Bush for excessive spending … even calling it unpatriotic (Obama’s words; not mine)!
Did George Bush use Executive Orders a bit too often. He did! Again, that does not excuse Obama’s tripling down on the same … or Obama’s creating a shadow government of radical Czars (his mostly communist cronies who answer to nobody), or Obama’s repeatedly by-passing the Congress to inflict increased regulation or bad economic policy by imperial fiat, or sneaking through legislation that the majority of people of this country had already rejected on principle. Again … after attacking Bush … and calling Bush’s presidency imperialistic! Bush’s imperialism pales on comparison to Obama’s!
So by your logic, we should excuse James Eagan Holmes who killed 12 and wounded 58 in Aurora, Co; because Jame Edward Plough killed 11 and wounded 6 in Jacksonville, Fl.
And finally, a major difference … George W. Bush did not actively seek to ignore or even destroy the U.S. Constitution, or to eliminate American’s individual rights by putting American citizens under the control of the United Nations, or to create an unsustainable socialist nanny-state by promising “free Bush money” to anyone foolish enough to drink the cool aid and vote for him. Obama has done all those things and more.
So I ask you, when our country goes bankrupt … and you don’t actually get the “free Obama money” you have been promised by Our Anointed Emporer, Barack Hussein Obama; because he simply hasn’t got it … are you going to riot in the streets, smash windows, and burn small businesses and private property … like the entitlement-zombies did in Greece? Are you still going to chant the same tired old mantra “Blame George Bush” because Obama did not keep his foolish and irresponsible promises to you?
I am so relieved that the Private sector is doing so well. I must have missed it. Maybe because I was worring about my declining income vs. soaring expenses. Silly me!
It seems, at least according to the Anointed One, that it is the public sector that is doing so poorly. Obama tells us that States simply do not have the “flexibility” (translation: “the ability to print and/or borrow endless sums of money”) that the Obama regime has. So, I guess then Obama is suggesting that all we have to do is let States print their own money and/or borrow money from the Chinese (just like Obama’s administration does) and the public sector woes will soon be over! At least, that is, until each state is $15 trillion in debt and therefore files for bankruptcy … or request a federal bailout! This is the positively brilliant fiscal policy espoused by our peerless leader, Emperor Obama! I guess he figured this out between the 16th and 17th holes during his last round of golf.
In a recent speech, we hear Obama still trying to blame George W. Bush for the astronomical deficit in this country. Of course, this is after three and a half years of his polices; two years of which he controlled both Houses of Congress. He passed his bailouts, his “shovel ready” porkulous bill, ObamaCare, and gave billions to now bankrupt “green energy” companies run by his cronies (oops, I mean election campaign contribution bundlers), but it is still Bush’s fault. It defies reason no matter how you look at it!! Of course, facts don’t matter to his left-wing media machine who dutifully spew forth his rhetoric … including Obama’s brilliant and really cool analogy involving a restaurant tab.
President Obama went on the offense against Republicans and their nominee Mitt Romney, pushing back on the often-repeated accusation that his administration has ballooned the country’s deficit.
“I love it when these guys talk about debt and deficits,” Obama told supporters in Baltimore. “I inherited a trillion dollar deficit.” [Which is now over $15 trillion]
“We signed two trillion dollars in spending cuts into law,” Obama said. “Spending under my administration has grown more slowly than under any president in 60 years.” [The above chart would suggest otherwise]
Obama said that the country’s budget deficits and big debt were the result of the George W. Bush’s two tax cuts, as well as the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. “They baked all this stuff into the cake with those tax cuts… and the war,” Obama said. [maybe so, but I also remember Obama stating in his 2008 campaign that you cannot raise taxes in a recession and that he would cut spending by going over expenses “line-by-line” (Oh wait, before you can have a “line,” you have to have a budget! Oops! My bad!). I would also point out that … 72 out of 100 Senators and 297 out of 435 Representatives (so that includes Republicans and Democrats if you are unsure) voted to support the war in Iraq after 9/11. Therefore, Obama’s “they” includes a good many members of Obama’s own party as well]
“It’s like somebody goes to a restaurant, orders a big steak dinner, a martini and all that stuff, then just as you’re sitting down they leave and accuse you of running up the tab,” Obama said. [Except Obama has been sitting at that table for three and a half more hours, ordering more wine, desserts, after dinner brandies, and coffee … hoping he could simply blame the previous patron … and knowing his Obama-zombies would never catch on ]
Can Obama can’t really be serious? Even more sadly, the cool aid drinkers actually do lap it up and believe! They cling like rats to a sinking ship, blindly following, soaking up the rhetoric while ignoring all evidence to the contrary that surrounds them. Obama’s true brilliance lies in his ability to play up the “intellectually cheap, populist, class-warfare rhetoric.” He’s not just blaming the Bush-era tax cuts (which he himself extended), he’s throwing in a steak-and-a-martini analogy to really show his pizzaz and bring the message home to his loyal Obama-zombies!
Oh well! When will Obama and his cronies understand that, simply because former President George W. Bush, who was not a fiscally conservative Republican, spent too much money while in office, Obama’s regime quadrupling down on it, and then some … is not a good thing! Blaming Bush no longer plays … but it seems to be the only card in Obama’s deck. At least Obama is really good at sticking to his message.
Can you image the sanctimonious, selective liberal outrage we would have been subjected to had George W. Bush, a conservative like Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney, or pretty much any republican had misspoken and called Nazi death camps in Poland … Polish death camps? The liberal press would have wasted no time in excoriating the transgressor as a stupid, right-wing, nazi-loving, drooling, anti-woman, old-people killing, drunken, hate mongering neocon with latent heterosexual and homicidal tendencies, etc.! I mean Bill Maher would have had material for at least a month’s worth of left-wing verbal diarrhea!
However, since it was the anointed-one, Barack Obama, who committed the gaff …. he simply “misspoke.”
