Obama’s Greatest Hits Vol III

Mind you, he was just spewing shit at stupid people to manipulate them. But if we are going to hold him to it, then he is the most unpatriotic president of the entirety of American History.

debt-1-17-17 1/17/17debt-1-3-171/3/17

As you can see it will hit $20 Trillion Dollars in the not to distant future (est. March 2017). Which the Left will say is “Trump’s Fault” because on Jan 21st EVERYTHING in human history that is bad will be “Trump’s Fault” or the “Republican’s fault”. That’s how Democrat’s roll.

Truth has little to do with it. And holding Obama to his own Rhetoric, well that’s just not “fair”, maybe even “racist”. 🙂

But one of Obama’s Legacy, besides, the buck stops everywhere except on his desk,  is the legacy of Debt, which all Liberals will still scream, “it was Bush’s fault”. Ignoring that they took over the Congress in it’s entirety BEFORE Bush left office and Bush being rather squishy let them.

CNN 10/2016): While the large increase in borrowing occurred “under Obama,” it’s an overstatement to blame Obama’s actions as the sole cause of the ballooning debt, according to the bipartisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget.

The debt would have risen by $3 trillion because of tax and spending policies that were already in place. Plus, the Great Recession drove up spending on safety net programs, such as Medicaid and food stamps, without the president or Congress doing a thing.

And the Great Recession was “Bush’s Fault”. So the $9.3 Trillion Dollars spent while Obama was the Commander-in-Chief, which is more than any other President in history, isn’t his fault. 🙂

But the microsecond Trump takes over the Debt IS ALL HIS FAULT.

This is is how the Liberal game is played.

Lies, Damned Lies, and Democrats. 🙂

“Absent the work of President Obama this national debt would be even higher,” Pelosi said at her weekly briefing with reporters at the Capitol when asked about the increase in the federal budget under Obama. (4 days ago)

Health Care costs would have been higher, if it weren’t for ObamaCare. So what if it was supposed to save you $2500 but cost you $4000+ it would have been worse without their superiority and now that you don’t have it — Armageddon awaits you!

Their out-of-whack spending saved you money! 🙂

Cutting the rate of increase is savings.

This is how the game is played.

Squishy Republican RINOs didn’t help, But that due to the poor leadership of fraidy-cat Jar Jar Boehner who was the worst person at the worst time.

Now we just have to hold the still squishy,self-servicing RINOs feet to the fire.

Obama’s Greatest Hits Vol. II

And the greatest lie of all…

I always love when a Liberal says he going to decrease the rate of increase as a “savings”. If you’re going up by 4% a year and you cut the rate of increase by less than 4% IT’S STILL AN INCREASE!

Remember, Sequestration, that great evil , was only about cutting 2% of a proposed increase and the Democrats were forecasting Armageddon!

But that’s the game you play with people you think are too stupid to understand that (and many of them are, but many got the cold reality bitch slapped into them).

Oh, and if you didn’t opt in to his MANDATORY plan you got a “penalty” that was a tax but it wasn’t tax because they didn’t call it a Tax (but the Supreme Cort later did) so it wasn’t a tax that could cost you Thousands of dollars in a “penalty” tax.
Son people who couldn’t afford ObamaCare got taxed money they didn’t have to pay for not being able to pay for it!
Some insurance plans under Obamacare are designed not to kick in until patients have spent thousands of dollars in out-of-pocket costs, which put many healthcare services out of reach for patients.
Your “free health care” comes with s $4,500 deductible. 🙂
Now that’s “Affordable”. 🙂
So you get a “penalty” instead, which is ALSO thousands of dollars!!
Yay! 🙂
Were there any alternatives to ObamaCare?  None were allowed. The Democrats shut out everyone and everything that had any other alternative than what THEY WANTED. They wanted full on Government Health Care but couldn’t manage to pass it even by their hyper-partisans.
When Medicare was proposed to be privatized. Medicare was the instrument of torture for Obamacare. So “Hope and Change” became Fear & Intimidation as it always does with Liberals.
Ad against Romney in 2012 (the guy who proposed ObamaCare for Massachusetts before Obama did but since he was a Republican…): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hrdeyMNZW88
Not one Republican voted for ObamaCare, but yet Obama blames its failure on them. 🙂

HE DID BUILD THAT.

Looks like we need an update. Except it’s not Paul Ryan doing the Granny-Cliff-Throwing, it’s Obama and the Democrats who gave us Obamacare. To the surprise of no one, of course.

According to this, Obamacare premiums are so high, that people with chronic illnesses are opting to not even go to the doctor or get medication, because they just can’t afford it. The sourcelink cites the example of 61-year-old Michelle Harris, who has arthritis in both shoulders. But she refuses to go see a doctor because she just doesn’t have that kind of money. –

Michelle Harris is one of those people. Harris, a 61-year-old retired waitress in northwest Montana, has arthritis in both shoulders but is doing everything she can to avoid seeing a doctor due to the $4,500 deductible and $338 a month in premiums under her Blue Cross Blue Shield plan.

“It hurts, but we don’t have that kind of money,” Harris said to Bloomberg Politics. “So I deal with it.”

Wait… wasn’t the big argument for implementing Obamacare that people avoided going to the doctor because it was too expensive? That the EEEEEEEEEVIL insurance companies were profiting off the pain and suffering of sick Americans, so the Glorious and Benevolent Big Daddy Federal Government had to come in and put a stop to it? Pass the bill so you can find out what’s in it!

Well, looks like we found out what’s in it. And it’s just more of the same, only with gasoline poured on the dumpster fire.

YAY.

The article goes on to say that even the people who have the Wonderful Sainted Obamacare still don’t know whether they can afford to go to the doctor, if they needed to –

Even though the uninsured rate in America is at a record low, a study from the Commonwealth Fund found that four out of 10 adults in Obamacare plans aren’t confident that they can pay their medical bills if they got sick, Bloomberg Politics reported.

“A lot of people are still one catastrophic illness away from really feeling the financial impact of this,” said Jonathan Oberlander, a health policy professor at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. “They’re underinsured, and that means they’re not going to get all the services that they want or that they need.”

So, what’s the freaking point of having health insurance, if you’re paying hundreds of dollars every month and it’s not even doing jack squat for you? That’s like making a car payment each month, but you don’t get to drive the car because it’s not even put together yet!

Of course, the answer to all this is We Freaking Told You So. Conservatives KNEW and warned people that this was going to fall apart. That it was not sustainable, let alone “affordable.” And yet, it was pushed through anyway.

{…}

Whatever Barack Obama’s precious “legacy” ends up being, this Obamacare mess definitely lands on his shoulders. If your insurance premiums have gone so high that you can’t even afford a simple checkup at the doctor’s office, blame him. (Chicks on the Right)

But like all Democrats, he won’t take it. He thinks he did right by you and you’re just a stupid, ungrateful, hateful Neanderthal. End of Story.

Obama’s Greatest Hits Vol. 1

The underemployment rate was 13.7 percent in December 2016.

The U-6 Unemployment rate (which is more accurate than than self-serving lies of the U-3) is 9.2%.

There were 5,669,000 Americans working part-time in November who would rather have a full-time job but cited economic reasons for not having such employment.

Obama touts that he created 10 million jobs over his 2 terms, but Obama’s own former economic advisor Alan Krueger says that 95 percent of the jobs that were counted in that number were temporary or part time.

Lowest Labor Participation Rate since President Nixon. Population 1973: 212 Million 2016: 324 Million.

The final jobs report of the Obama presidency, released Friday, shows that the number of Americans not in the labor force has increased by 14,573,000 (18.09 percent) since January 2009, when Obama took office, continuing a long-term trend that began well before Obama was sworn in.

In December, according to the Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, a record 95,102,000 Americans were not in the labor force, 47,000 more than in November; and the labor force participation rate was 62.7 percent, a tenth of a point higher than in November.

The participation rate dropped to a 38-year low of 62.4 percent on Obama’s watch, in September 2015. It was only 3-tenths of a point higher than that last month.

Press Secretary Josh Earnest recently claimed that 805,000 manufacturing jobs were created under President Obama. The truth is Obama presided over a LOSS of 303,000 manufacturing jobs from the start of his presidency in January 2009. Earnest cherry-picked data from 2010 to create his own number.

We have record highs of Americans out of the work force, and near record low rates of Americans participating in the work force. Heckuva job, Obama!

YOU DID BUILD THAT!

For George W. Bush’s last year in office in 2008 the deficit was the highest it had ever been at $460 billion – but 7 of Obama’s 8 years in office have exceeded that number. When Obama came into power in 2009, the deficit more than tripled from the previous year’s record to $1.41 TRILLION!!! 2015 saw the lowest deficit in Obama’s tenure and it was $440 billion, just below Bush’s highest. For 2016 the deficit is projected to go back up to $620 billion. (Source for all these numbers.)

According to Investopedia, Obama holds the record for the largest total deficit:

Barack Obama’s budget is projected to run a deficit of $7.3 trillion over his eight years, making him the president with the largest budget deficit. George W. Bush is second, with a deficit of $3.29 trillion over his eight years. Ronald Reagan is third at $1.412 trillion deficit in eight years and George H.W. Bush comes in fourth with a $1.03 trillion deficit in his single term.

Which brings us to the national debt…

Debt

On the day President Obama was sworn into office (January 20, 2009) the national debt stood at an historic high of $10.6 trillion dollars. As of January 5, 2017, Obama has almost doubled the debt to an astounding $19.9 trillion.

Remember when candidate Obama said in 2008 that 43rd President George W. Bush was “driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents. Number 43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.”

Well, Obama drove up our national debt from $10.6 trillion for the first 43 presidents, and number 44 added over $9 trillion all by his lonesome – as of January 5, 2017, Obama has almost doubled the debt to an astounding $19.9 trillion that we are going to have to pay back – over $61,000 for every man, woman and child, and over $166,000 per U.S. taxpayer, according to the U.S. National Debt Clock on January 7, 2017. How irresponsible and unpatriotic is that?!

The number of food stamps recipients went up by 10.7 million people, a 32 percent jump, since President Obama took office in 2009, according to data released by the Department of Agriculture (USDA).

In 2009, 33,490,000 people received food stamp benefits. As of October 2016, the last month reported for FY 2016, 44,219,123 people received food stamp benefits, an increase of about 10,729,000.

The U.S. population as of October 1, 2016 was 324,607,826, according to U.S. Census Bureau estimates.  Therefore, the 44,219,123 people on food stamps represented 13.6 percent of the population.

The cost of food stamps to taxpayers also increased over the time Obama was in office.  As of 2009, all food stamp recipients received up to $50.3 billion in benefits.  As of 2016, that number has increased to $66.6 billion, an estimated increase of $16.3 billion.

The average monthly benefit for food stamp recipients, however, remains almost unchanged.  In 2009, food stamp recipients received an average monthly benefit of $125.31, while in 2016 they received $125.51.

Memory Lane

Remember this dust up?

One Week to Go

On Tuesday night, President Barack Obama took to the stage one final time to give a farewell address. Americans couldn’t wait to see him go.

The Liberals were crying. Their God was going to be going away and the scary Neanderthals were going to put them in concentration camps and and oppress and destroy everything he did to destroy us….Wah! They still want a do over.

But he wouldn’t.

For 45 minutes, he babbled, fibbed, rehashed the good times and the other good times, the victories and the other victories, told a hackneyed fairy tale about the young prince who arrived in the swamps of Washington D.C. and left it a utopian vision at the mercy of an evil Troll.

After all, it’s always been about him and his greatness.

And the media wept.

Prediction: The Media and the Left will be in total Freak out mode every numbered odd second of the next 4-8 years. They will be in Meltdown mode for every even numbered second. 🙂

Unfortunately, the speech was chock full of fibs.

When isn’t he?

Here were 15 of the worst falsehoods.

1. He Believes Change Comes From Ordinary People. Obama said, “I learned that change only happens when ordinary people get involved, get engaged, and come together to demand it. After eight years as your president, I still believe that.” Really? That’s odd. His signature legislation forced benighted Americans to purchase health insurance and required religious Americans to forego their religious objections to contraceptives and abortion coverage. This is the same fellow who once referred to half the electorate as bitter clingers obsessed with God and xenophobia thanks to their poverty, and labeled the Tea Party as a terrorist entity.

Ordinary= Liberal Leftist willing to do his bidding, Like a Jim Jones cult.
2. American Exceptionalism Lies In Our Capacity To Change. No, actually, all people are capable of change, if some more so than others. Change may be worthwhile, but that’s not what makes America unique. What makes America exceptional is the foundational principles of individual freedom and limited government enshrined in our founding documents. But Obama said, “So that’s what we mean when we say America is exceptional.  Not that our nation has been flawless from the start, but that we have shown the capacity to change, and make life better for those who follow.”

aka Socialism.

3. He Created A Thriving Economy. Obama bragged about “revers[ing] a great recession, reboot[ing] our auto industry, and unleash[ing] the longest stretch of job creation in our history.” Actually, he was responsible for the weakest recovery in American history, he blew out the national debt, and he ensured that trillions of dollars in investment money remained on the sidelines, as well as keeping underemployment at significant highs.

Thriving Socialist Economy, which since there is no such thing…

4. He Fixed Cuba. Obama bragged about “open[ing] a new chapter with the Cuban people.” But the Cuban people are still stuck living under a communist tyranny that has now been significantly enriched and empowered by Obama’s support.

5. He Disarmed Iran. Obama said he had “shut down Iran’s nuclear weapons program without firing a shot.” That’s patently untrue. The Associated Press reported yesterday that the Obama administration greenlit a shipment of tons of uranium to Iran. Iran has been secretly pursuing nuclear development, and Obama’s been ignoring it, as well as their material support for terrorism.

So what if he gave them millions..pish tosh…inconsequential….

6. He Won “Marriage Equality.” Actually, Obama opposed same-sex marriage until his 2012 re-election campaign. It was Anthony Kennedy and his extraconstitutional mandate that “won” so-called “marriage equality.”

But since he was President, and it was good, its because of HIM. Everything bad is because of someone else…

7. He “Secure[d] The Right To Health Insurance.” Actually, Obama just mandated that Americans buy health insurance at gunpoint. That’s not securing a right. That’s controlling others with coercion.

He gave you that $2000 penalty that was a tax but it’s not a tax but a penalty tax. He also raised your insurance an average of $4000 a year. He just that great a guy…

8. He Supports “Solidarity.” There has been no more divisive president in modern history than Obama. Obama has demonized his oppositions, termed them enemies, urged his followers to bring a gun to a knife fight. He has overrun limits on executive power, grandstanded on race, and labeled those who oppose him idiots who just don’t understand the moral arc of history.

As long as you exactly what a  Liberals says, when they say it, without hesitation, deviation or questioning their superiority everyone will have a unified purpose.

9. Healthcare Costs Are Under Control. Obama said that health care costs are rising at the lowest rate in 50 years. This is a far cry from Obama’s claim that Obamacare would lower the cost of a typical family’s premium by $2,500 per year. Instead, premiums have skyrocketed inside Obamacare, and insurance companies have also raised premiums for employer-based insurance to compensate for the new regulations.

sick-again-a-600-li

10. Race Relations Have Improved Under Obama. Obama stated, “I’ve lived long enough to know that race relations are better than they were 10, or 20, or 30 years ago – you can see it not just in statistics, but in the attitudes of young Americans across the political spectrum.” It’s true that race relations are better now than they were in 1994. But they have gotten markedly worse by every poll over the last eight years. That’s because of Obama’s insistence that a post-racial America is impossible. And Obama insisted that white people acknowledge that “when minority groups voice discontent, they’re not just engaging in reverse racism or practicing political correctness; that when they wage peaceful protest, they’re not demanding special treatment, but the equal treatment our Founders promised.” That’s not always true, though. Does it apply when protesters burn Baltimore or Ferguson over baseless claims of police brutality?

It wasn’t this bad in the 1960’s when it was illegal. But that just might be my “white privilege” speaking for my racist,sexist,transphobic,homophobic,islamophobic,bigot mouth. 🙂

Division is Unity.

11. Obama Is Anti-Bubble. He said, “we become so secure in our bubbles that we accept only information, whether true or not, that fits our opinions, instead of basing our opinions on the evidence that’s out there.” Yes, Mr. President, you’ve made this a habit. And this speech was proof of it.

He is the Sith Lord of Bubble.

12. “No Foreign Terrorist Organization Has Planned And Executed” A Terror Attack. He also said ISIS was under control. Nonsense. His oddly specific formulation about terrorism is ridiculous. We’ve seen multiple major terrorist attacks in the United States under Obama, from Fort Hood to Boston to Orlando to San Bernardino. And we know from audio from John Kerry that the Obama administration allowed ISIS to grow long after Obama realized they were no longer the jayvee squad.

None that he recognize as such, so naturally that means it didn’t happen because he is never wrong about anything.

13. He’s “Worked To Close Gitmo, And Reform Our Laws Governing Surveillance.” Actually, he’s failed to close Gitmo, and his surveillance reform was prompted not by his own desire to protect civil liberties, but by widespread outcry at the extent of surveillance under the NSA as revealed by Edward Snowden.

He released terrorists wantonly and when they come back to kill more Americans he’s going to blame Trump for it. Whattaguy!

14. The American Creed Is “Yes We Can.” No, actually. There are several American creeds, but “Yes We Can” isn’t among them. That was just a cheap slogan. E Pluribus Unum – that’s a creed Obama opposed with his intersectionality. In God We Trust – that’s a creed Obama opposed throughout his presidency. Liberty – nope, he wasn’t a fan. A Nation of Laws, Not of Men – nope. We Are Endowed By Our Creator With Certain Inalienable Rights – well, unless you cross the collective.

Obama: We can make this an oppressive Socialist nation! Yes We Can! 🙂

15. “Yes We Did.” No, actually. We didn’t. Which is why Obama leaves with his legacy in flames and the world on the brink of a serious period of international crisis.

Fortunately, the Democrats arrogantly overplayed their hand and ignored the not-on-the-agenda anger towards them and got burned for it.
BO is BS, but all his Jim Jones cultists will keep “Hope” alive. 🙂

The Selling of Fake News

He’s not even the president yet, and they are writing Fake news stories…

Donald Trump got into a heated exchange with a CNN reporter during his afternoon press conference on Wednesday. Trump admonished the reporter, calling CNN “fake news.”

“Your organization is terrible,” Trump said to CNN’s Jim Acosta.

“You’re attacking us, can you give us a question?” Acosta shot back at Trump.

“Don’t be rude. No, I’m not going to give you a question. You are fake news,” Trump responded.

The row comes after CNN reported on a 35-page report that made numerous scurrilous accusations about the President-elect and his campaign.

Yeah, Trump’s main lawyer, Michael Cohen (“the contact”), was supposed to have been in Prague talking to the Russians on the same day and time he was in LA with his son. Good Fact Checking there CNN (and Buzzfeed-Partially owned by NBC), way to go.

Jake Tapper, with what sounded like the Dan Rather Defense of , the documents were fake but the info as correct. Dan is teaching a college course now on “honesty” in Media, so…

“At the beginning of the press conference, Sean Spicer, who is going to be the White House press secretary, suggested that both BuzzFeed and CNN published this dossier full of uncorroborated rumors. That’s not true. That’s false. CNN never did that. We never provided even one detail from that dossier except this morning when I said that there was reason to believe that one detail that had been out there because of BuzzFeed was false involving Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen.” [emphasis added]

Tapper went on to clarify, “So, that conflation, whether it’s because Sean Spicer misunderstood or some other reason, that’s not true. CNN did not do that.”

Later, Tapper theorized Trump’s “fake news” outburst at CNN reporter Jim Acosta was an attempt to discredit the media organization.

“When Mr. Trump went after our own Jim Acosta saying he is ‘fake news’ and he isn’t going to call on him, what I suspect we are seeing here is an attempt to discredit legitimate, responsible attempts to report on this incoming administration with irresponsible journalism that hurts us all and the media going forward should keep that in mind,” Tapper stated.

So he says that Trump is doing it to them, what they have been doing to Trump for 2 months? That’s hilarious. But it fits the Liberal model of being the “victim” when their hypocrisy is exposed and they get caught complaining about what THEY have been doing.

“I can understand why President-Elect Trump would be upset about it,” Tapper said. “That’s why we did not detail any specifics from it because it was uncorroborated and that’s not what we do. We are in the business of sussing out what is true and false.”

So it was uncorroborated rumors that you published and aired anyways? Now is that Journalism 101? or Sleazy Propaganda 101? 🙂

CNN’s defense: Well, we told you it was unconfirmed. But we ran it anyways because it made us giddy. 🙂

I thought in journalism you corroborated your facts FIRST. Not just run with it and when it proves to be false do the mea culpa and blame someone else for leading you astray.

They would never have done that with their man Barack. But then again, they were his Propaganda machine to begin with. They are “hard hitting”, “factual” news now. 🙂

The allegations came, in part, from memos compiled by a former British intelligence operative, whose past work US intelligence officials consider credible. The FBI is investigating the credibility and accuracy of these allegations, which are based primarily on information from Russian sources, but has not confirmed many essential details in the memos about Mr. Trump. (CNN)

British sources? You mean like Yellow Cake from Niger?? The Left has a made a career out of that one the last time a Republican was in the  White House…and Trump isn’t even there yet!

These senior intelligence officials also included the synopsis to demonstrate that Russia had compiled information potentially harmful to both political parties, but only released information damaging to Hillary Clinton and Democrats.

If a Conservative or a Republican said this about Barack would this be considered “tin foil hat time”?  Quite the conspiracy.  oooh, very nefarious…I blame You Tube. It worked before. 🙂

The two-page synopsis also included allegations that there was a continuing exchange of information during the campaign between Trump surrogates and intermediaries for the Russian government, according to two national security officials.
The surrogate being Michael Cohen who can be verified to have been in the US the whole time.
Sources tell CNN that these same allegations about communications between the Trump campaign and the Russians, mentioned in classified briefings for congressional leaders last year, prompted then-Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid to send a letter to FBI Director Comey in October, in which he wrote, “It has become clear that you possess explosive information about close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his top advisors, and the Russian government — a foreign interest openly hostile to the United States.”
Harry Reid? Great source. The Devil’s Advocate, literally. 🙂
And no one at CNN bothered to fact check this at all?
Why bother. It’s juicy, salacious, and it will get headlines. Who cares if it’s true or not.
We’ll just complain after the fact if it’s false and we ran with “fake news”.
We’ll blame BuzzFeed for it. Yeah, yeah, that’s the ticket!!
The memos originated as opposition research, first commissioned by anti-Trump Republicans, and later by Democrats.
There was your first clue! That Elephant made an jackass out of you.

“The dossier, which is a collection of memos written over a period of months, includes specific, unverified, and potentially unverifiable allegations of contact between Trump aides and Russian operatives, and graphic claims of sexual acts documented by the Russians,” the BuzzFeed article accompanying the document states.

“BuzzFeed News is publishing the full document so that Americans can make up their own minds about allegations about the president-elect that have circulated at the highest levels of the US government,” it continues.

Yet, they covered up Hillary  and Barack as much as inhumanly possible.

This is what is called a “Hit piece” and journalist used to have more integrity. But Journalism died quite some time ago.

 

“Don’t know about ethics, but now Trump has easy out,” tweeted Mark Horowitz, a veteran journalist who has worked at The New York Times.

Well, in the days of ethics you wouldn’t run a story without having checked your facts first.

In a memo to his staff, BuzzFeed editor-in-chief Ben Smith explained that he decided to publish the memos because BuzzFeed’s “presumption is to be transparent in our journalism and to share what we have with our readers.”

Unless it’s Hillary or a Democrat that is.

It’s transparent alright. Transparent at it was sleazy, unethical rumor mongering with unsubstantiated BS that served your Agenda and not “the truth”. It made you do a happy dance. It aroused your inner partisan hack.

Regardless of the veracity of the memos, within minutes of BuzzFeed’s publication of it, some of the more colorful details were already trending on Twitter. (Buzz feed)

And that, my dears, was the whole point of doing it. Feed the rapid nuts on Twitter. Who cares if it’s true or not it makes for great “meat” for the rabid. They ate it up like Jim Jone’s Kool Aid.

The president-elect referred to BuzzFeed as a “failing pile of garbage.” So now Buzzfeed has T-Shirts, bumper stickers, and merchandise emblazoned with it.

Journalistic ethics sold for Kool-Aid drinking cultist merchandise.

The document was fake, but the information in it was true, as Dan Rather once said. And since he is now teaching College Kids about “Honesty” in media reporting you know that the future of Truth is in safe hands… It’s one some Leftist’s shirt or bumper and it’s all true because it was on the Internet! 🙂

And it can all be yours for a price!

 

 

 

Thank you, Barack…

Well, the day has arrived. President Obama gave his farewell address to a rabid crowd in his hometown of Chicago.

I wonder how many people g0ot killed by guns in Gun Control Central that night?

We’re all going to miss him. He’s such an ideological hardliner that you either love him or hate him. 🙂

He discussed how the economy has improved, how he promised President-elect Trump a smooth transition, how jobs have been created (though not felt by most Americans), and how we need to be, for lack of a better word, nicer to one another.

Everything he DIDN’T do as President. Quite the opposite in fact. But his Ego is to big to admit it.

The president spoke about having a basic sense of solidarity with one another.

Which is why he nurtured and fostered, and helped create “identity  politics” that divides us among just about every thing in life except Star Wars Vs. Star Trek.

We’re all in this together mentality; we rise or fall as one.

And we are supposed to be ruled over with an iron fist by one who has the vision that everything is about your superior hard line ideology.

He then spoke about the three threats (or challenges) facing the country.

Besides his ilk and the Progressive Democrats? 🙂

Oh, and there were hallmark passages exhibiting the awesomeness that is Barack Obama and the Democratic Party that has been devastated under his presidency.

The first threat is economic inequality:

Our democracy won’t work without a sense that everyone has economic opportunity. Today, the economy is growing again; wages, incomes, home values, and retirement accounts are rising again; poverty is falling again.

He’s still living in his fairie-tale Ego-induced land of ideological fiction. Millions more are out of work, chronic unemployment, hours slashed for many because of ObamaCare and rising Minimum Wage Laws. The lowest Labor Participation rate since President Nixon.

The wealthy are paying a fairer share of taxes even as the stock market shatters records.

Those Records are because Hillary and your crowd LOST!

The unemployment rate is near a ten-year low.

And anyone with a little knowledge knows that the Unemployment Rate only measures those actively looking for work. The tens of millions you drove out of the labor market aren’t counted. It’s a false reading.

The uninsured rate has never, ever been lower.

And the Premiums Higher!

Health care costs are rising at the slowest rate in fifty years.

I love when the Democrats celebrate that cost are rising slower than they used to. Likie that’s a good thing? The average person is either paying Thousands in “penalties” because they can’t afford their insurance to begin with or have had it raised thousands of dollars a year.

But if Barack and his “affordable” Health Care where I can keep my plan and my Doctor hadn’t step in it would have been so much worse! Thanks, for nothing Barack.

And if anyone can put together a plan that is demonstrably better than the improvements we’ve made to our health care system – that covers as many people at less cost – I will publicly support it.

LIAR! LIAR! ObamaCare Hell on Fire!

That, after all, is why we serve – to make people’s lives better, not worse.

Well, you a piss poor job then. E- for for you.

But for all the real progress we’ve made, we know it’s not enough.

Yeah, the socialist destruction of the country was incomplete.

Our economy doesn’t work as well or grow as fast when a few prosper at the expense of a growing middle class.

So you tried to destroy the middle class all together and destroy wealth to boot. Thus everyone would be equally poor. 🙂

But stark inequality is also corrosive to our democratic principles.

But not as much as “social justice”.

While the top one percent has amassed a bigger share of wealth and income, too many families, in inner cities and rural counties, have been left behind – the laid-off factory worker; the waitress and health care worker who struggle to pay the bills – convinced that the game is fixed against them, that their government only serves the interests of the powerful – a recipe for more cynicism and polarization in our politics.

YOU DID BUILD THAT Barack! 🙂

[…]

And so we must forge a new social compact – to guarantee all our kids the education they need; to give workers the power to unionize for better wages; to update the social safety net to reflect the way we live now and make more reforms to the tax code so corporations and individuals who reap the most from the new economy don’t avoid their obligations to the country that’s made their success possible. We can argue about how to best achieve these goals. But we can’t be complacent about the goals themselves.

In other words, anything other than my Agenda is substandard, but your agenda nearly destroyed us. Thanks, Barack…

For if we don’t create opportunity for all people, the disaffection and division that has stalled our progress will only sharpen in years to come.

The Social Justice Warriors, BLM, etc will surely make it a happy place. Speaking of which…

The second is race relations:

After my election, there was talk of a post-racial America.

It last maybe 3 seconds at best. Then the race-baiting and fear-mongering on a scale of 1-10 was turned up to 25!

Such a vision, however well-intended, was never realistic.

Especially when you elect race-baiting Liberals. My “White Privilege” Thanks you.

For race remains a potent and often divisive force in our society.

And they exploited it like no one has in 50+ years.

I’ve lived long enough to know that race relations are better than they were ten, or twenty, or thirty years ago – you can see it not just in statistics, but in the attitudes of young Americans across the political spectrum.

Those would be the BLMers who were rioting, looting and killing more people than ever? Or just the Social Justice Warriors destroying lives and businesses for their own egotistical need to control everyone? Or the Professors who teach these young people, you know the one who had to have Post-Trump Stress Disorder counseling when the entitled little brats didn’t get what they wanted? Or the ones who says that anyone who isn’t an SJW  (or follows the commands and orders of one) is a racist, homophobic, transphobic,islamophbic, sexist, bigot?

I need a therapy dog after 8 years of your love.

But we’re not where we need to be.

Yeah, the socialist revolution was incomplete. Viva La Revolucion! 🙂

All of us have more work to do. After all, if every economic issue is framed as a struggle between a hardworking white middle class and undeserving minorities, then workers of all shades will be left fighting for scraps while the wealthy withdraw further into their private enclaves.

YOU BUILD THAT, Barack!

If we decline to invest in the children of immigrants (ILLEGAL ALIENS!), just because they don’t look like us, we diminish the prospects of our own children – because those brown kids will represent a larger share of America’s workforce.

So that’s why “white people” are evil and should just shut and be ruled by us. No racism there… 🙂

And our economy doesn’t have to be a zero-sum game. Last year, incomes rose for all races, all age groups, for men and for women.

And the costs?

Going forward, we must uphold laws against discrimination – in hiring, in housing, in education and the criminal justice system.

But if you’re White, f*ck you, you over-privileged racist bigot!

That’s what our Constitution and highest ideals require. But laws alone won’t be enough.

Which is why I was Executive Order crazy!

Hearts must change. If our democracy is to work in this increasingly diverse nation, each one of us must try to heed the advice of one of the great characters in American fiction, Atticus Finch, who said “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view.until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.”

Unless you’re white, Christian or male, then you’re the root of all evil and the only solution for you is slavery.

For blacks and other minorities, it means tying our own struggles for justice to the challenges that a lot of people in this country face – the refugee, the immigrant, the rural poor, the transgender American, and also the middle-aged white man who from the outside may seem like he’s got all the advantages, but who’s seen his world upended by economic, cultural, and technological change.

And racial and social “identity” politics. You did build that.

For white Americans, it means acknowledging that the effects of slavery and Jim Crow didn’t suddenly vanish in the ’60s;

And we reopened all those wounds and poured napalm on them!

that when minority groups voice discontent, they’re not just engaging in reverse racism or practicing political correctness;

So when that black guy breaks into your house, he “entitled”. If they riot because SJWs have got them enraged, let them burn it all down. Its all good. 🙂

You’re white, you’re evil. Just accept it.

that when they wage peaceful protest, they’re not demanding special treatment, but the equal treatment our Founders promised.

For native-born Americans, it means reminding ourselves that the stereotypes about immigrants today were said, almost word for word, about the Irish, Italians, and Poles. America wasn’t weakened by the presence of these newcomers; they embraced this nation’s creed, and it was strengthened.

Who came here Legally, I might add.

The third was the breakdown in political discourse—and the need to step out of our own sociopolitical bubbles.

Says the guy who has nothing but Bubbles! Who created the political discourse.

None of this is easy. For too many of us, it’s become safer to retreat into our own bubbles, whether in our neighborhoods or college campuses or places of worship or our social media feeds, surrounded by people who look like us and share the same political outlook and never challenge our assumptions.(assumptions like all white people are racists?) 🙂

Says the Pot calling the Kettle racist, sexist, homophobic,islamophobic,xenophobic, and a bigot…

The rise of naked partisanship  (YOU BUILT THAT), increasing economic and regional stratification, (YOU BUILT THAT) the splintering of our media into a channel for every taste (YOU BUILT THAT) – all this makes this great sorting seem natural, even inevitable (YOU BUILT THAT). And increasingly, we become so secure in our bubbles that we accept only information, whether true or not, that fits our opinions, instead of basing our opinions on the evidence that’s out there.

YOU BUILT THAT.

This trend represents a third threat to our democracy. Politics is a battle of ideas (not if you’re a devout Liberal it’s just a battle for control. If someone has a different idea than you then you must destroy it and them utterly!); in the course of a healthy debate, we’ll prioritize different goals, and the different means of reaching them.

But since ours is superior we’ll only do it OUR WAY.

But without some common baseline of facts (since when do Liberals care about facts?! Hands up don’t shoot!) ; without a willingness to admit new information (not allowed-off narrative), and concede that your opponent is making a fair point (yeah like when you railroaded ObamaCare), and that science and reason matter (Global Warning! yeah right…), we’ll keep talking past each other, making common ground and compromise impossible.
For you are Homo Superior Liberalis and your so vastly superior in everything that compromising with us grubby, ignorant racist, bigoted Neanderthals would be sullying your grand vision and purpose so f*uck off and lets us rule you for your own good in peace.

Now that’s compromise. You do as we tell you and that’s it.

Isn’t that part of what makes politics so dispiriting?

Yes, and you are the Sith Lord of Dispiriting.

How can elected officials rage about deficits when we propose to spend money on preschool for kids, but not when we’re cutting taxes for corporations? How do we excuse ethical lapses in our own party, but pounce when the other party does the same thing?

Benghazi anyone? anyone? E-Mail servers? Rigged Primary? Anyone?

It’s not just dishonest, this selective sorting of the facts; it’s self-defeating. Because as my mother used to tell me, reality has a way of catching up with you.

November 8, 2016! 🙂

Take the challenge of climate change.

You take it. It’s bogus to begin with and just another Liberal scheme to control people.

In just eight years, we’ve halved our dependence on foreign oil (yeah, that’s why we have so much more production! Not!), doubled our renewable energy (by Force and costly regulations!), and led the world to an agreement that has the promise to save this planet.

That is useless and didn’t involve the world’s biggest polluter. But at least it made you fell good. You did something. Now you’re happy. Good for you. Thanks, Barack.

But without bolder action, our children won’t have time to debate the existence of climate change; they’ll be busy dealing with its effects: environmental disasters, economic disruptions, and waves of climate refugees seeking sanctuary.

Fear mongering at it’s finest. Oh, and that thing about facts and science that you ignored…

Obama, The Enlightened God has spoken. All should bow down in his Magnificent Presence.

I’ll leave you to debate these passages. It’s a lecture. The final lecture from Professor Obama on how his principles, and that of the Democratic Party are the true beliefs, therefore, those who are part of the Left are the real Americans. Contrary to what Obama has said, race relations are worse, unemployment is down, but million have left the workforce, and yes, your side does adhere to and facilitate an authoritarian ethos of political correctness. Yes, he may have struck some similar tones Trump did regarding the out of work factory worker; the man can deliver a great speech. And this is one of the reasons why he was able to prevent a Romney landslide in these Rust Belt areas in 2012. In all, Obama’s speech was longer than Bush 41, Clinton, and Bush 43 combined,

Well, so is his Ego.

which was used to tell us what a great job he did, how we should not retreat into bubbles, which the Left has already done post-Trump’s win, and how we shouldn’t be so vicious to one another.  (Matt Vespa)

Where is my therapy counselor I’m feeling like I’m having a bubble moment… 🙂

Thanks, Barack. Don’t let the door hit you in the Ideological ass on the way out…
