Confirmation Bias

Excellent blog on Confirmation Bias which the left is fully committed to.

But first, Definition of term: Confirmation bias, also called confirmatory bias or myside bias, is the tendency to search for, interpret, favor, and recall information in a way that confirms one’s preexisting beliefs or hypotheses, while giving disproportionately less consideration to alternative possibilities. It is a type of cognitive bias and a systematic error of inductive reasoning. People display this bias when they gather or remember information selectively, or when they interpret it in a biased way. The effect is stronger for emotionally charged issues and for deeply entrenched beliefs. People also tend to interpret ambiguous evidence as supporting their existing position. Biased search, interpretation and memory have been invoked to explain attitude polarization (when a disagreement becomes more extreme even though the different parties are exposed to the same evidence), belief perseverance (when beliefs persist after the evidence for them is shown to be false), the irrational primacy effect (a greater reliance on information encountered early in a series) and illusory correlation (when people falsely perceive an association between two events or situations).

A series of experiments in the 1960s suggested that people are biased toward confirming their existing beliefs. Later work re-interpreted these results as a tendency to test ideas in a one-sided way, focusing on one possibility and ignoring alternatives. In certain situations, this tendency can bias people’s conclusions. Explanations for the observed biases include wishful thinking and the limited human capacity to process information. Another explanation is that people show confirmation bias because they are weighing up the costs of being wrong, rather than investigating in a neutral, scientific way.

Confirmation biases contribute to overconfidence in personal beliefs and can maintain or strengthen beliefs in the face of contrary evidence. Poor decisions due to these biases have been found in political and organizational contexts.

The Emperor Has No Clothes

Found this meme on Facebook yesterday, posted by a California Liberal.

empire

I replied, “Incorrect. The Rebels took down the Hillary Death Star and now we are living in ‘The Empire Strikes Back’. ”

Naturally, that got censored. 🙂

With the media and leftist hysterical every second of every day running around screaming about the end of the world as they knew it can you really be surprised?

The Dark Side is strong with them…And they want their Empire Back.

And no one hates more than the Left does right now.

 

I love Ted

This is why I wanted Ted Cruz for President.

He crucifies this twat.

“And I assume that the Sierra Club would issue a public retraction if confronted with the facts? That the data are precisely as I described. That over the last 18 years there has been no significant warming. And indeed that is why global alarmists invented the term ‘the pause’ to explain what they call the pause in global warming because the data demonstrate what you just said that the Earth is cooking and warming is not backed up by the data.”

“You know, Mr. Mair, I find it striking that for a policy organization that purports to focus exclusively on environmental issues, that you are not willing to tell this committee that you would issue a retraction if your testimony is objectively false under scientific data. That undermines the credibility of any organization.”

He could invent a new drinking game for how many times this guy says “97% of the Scientists” and get son drunk you’d actually think a Liberal makes sense… 🙂

 

Lost in Translation II

John Hawkins: Last week, I put out The Liberal Translation Guide: 20 Translations of Things That Liberals Say and people were like, “Woah, I had no idea that when liberals say they want ‘organic food;’ what they really mean is that they want to EAT BABIES.” Okay, that’s not true at all. But, what is true is that people loved those translations and wanted more. Now it’s time to give the people what they want…

1) “Dressing up as a giant vagina in public” — The best way to preserve the dignity of women.

2) “Nazi” – Germans who attempted to take over the world during WWII and members of the American Nazi Party. Oh, and Donald Trump….And Mitt Romney, too. George W. Bush? Of course! Definitely all the Tea Party members and the people who voted for Trump. Conservatives in general? Sure. Come to think of it, pretty much every American who doesn’t agree with any part of the liberal agenda.

And if not that: Use Racist, Homophobic, Transphobic, Islamophobic, sexist, and/or bigot. Did I leave anything or anyone out? 🙂

3) “Fetus” – A life-sucking parasite with no soul that feeds off the life of a woman and should be destroyed via abortion before you have a party celebrating its demise, unless you want the fetus, in which case it’s a sweet, loving baby.  

The power of life and death, who lives and who dies. Don’t you dare get in the way of that. Unless it’s a gun, then you have right to use or even own it you nutjob.

4) “Corporate Welfare” – Something that’s horrible and should never happen unless it involves Planned Parenthood, PBS or NPR.

Or any other Liberal Elite institution.

5) “Fake News” – News from non-liberal sources which are, by definition, fake because they make you stick your hands in your ears and yell, “La-La-La, I don’t want to hear from conservatives, la-la-la!”.’

Not Ministry of Truth approved.

6) “Stolen Election” – Relatively close elections that Republicans must have won with the help of Vladimir Putin, Jeb Bush or the Koch brothers.

Even if it can be proven that so far at least a third of Hillary popular vote victory was from non-citizens voting. That doesn’t matter.

7) “Homophobes” – Christians who believe in the almost universally agreed upon standards of male/female marriage that existed for thousands of years until liberals decided that the foundation of our civilization isn’t trendy enough.

See also “Nazi” or KKK.

8) “Xenophobe” – Americans who believe we should put our country’s interests ahead of other nations like Mexico, Iran and France.

Also, you believe in a border, at all. The term “illegal alien” set off yourn Thoughtcrime Filters and your mind shuts down at the concept.

9) “Diversity” – A group of liberals who agree on every single issue, but also happen to be gay, black, female, Hispanic or transsexual.

Can also be used to shame any non-liberal, because after all Diversity is a Holy Writ of Sanctimony for Liberals so only they can decree it’s existence from on high.

10) “Investment” – Wasting billions of dollars on useless government programs and giveaways that produce nothing of value.

11) “White Privilege” – The special superpowers gifted to white people that insure that there will never be a black President and all white people will always be wealthy and successful without having to work for it.

And all white people are inherently and genetically created with the Original Sin of Racism and must be repent for their sins by grovelling at the feet of a Liberal and begging their forgiveness.

 

12) “The constitution is a living, breathing document.” – If there are enough liberals on a court, they can ignore the law and override democracy to implement a left-wing agenda.

The Constitution is a tool for manipulation to be disregarded when it conflicts with The Agenda and/or Narrative.

13) “Patriotism” – Hatefully complaining about every real or imaginary fault of America while unfavorably comparing our country to places like Cuba and China.

See also “racism”, “sexism” and “xenophobia”. This a ‘disease’ that Liberal loathe.

14) “Violent rhetoric” – Words like “crossfire,” “job killing,”  “crosshairs,” and “targeted” when used by Republicans.

“Nasty Woman” Ashley or “bomb”er Madonna are non-violent by comparison.

15) “Detroit” – An extremely liberal city in a liberal state that must have been run into the ground and bankrupted by Republicans despite the fact that it hasn’t had a Republican mayor since 1962.

See “Robocop” (1984). It’s not Fiction. 🙂

16) “Radical Islam” – Words you’re not supposed to say because it may make people who are trying to kill us in the name of their religion mad.

You Xenophobe!

17) “Choice” – A wonderful thing when it comes to killing babies, but awful when it’s applied to guns, schools, opting out of Social security or having less government in your life.

denier

18) “Rape Culture” – When men want to have sex with women and worse yet, don’t bother to use consent forms for everything from hand holding to dirty sex on the hood of a car.

Make sure you have it on tape, signed in triplicate, notarized and witnessed by at least 3 credible females (males will be thrown out as biased).

19) “Vagina hats” – What you wear to let everyone know you’re serious people.

vigina

20) “Love Trumps Hate” – Screaming obscenities, smashing windows and assaulting people to show that you’re loving and they’re hateful.

Gruber Tales

The man who famously said that one of the reasons for the success of ObamaCare’s passage was due to the stupidity of the American populace is at i8t again, post-Obama.

After orchestrating a relentless campaign of deception about the law he designed, established liar Jonathan Gruber and his fellow propagandists have since made a series of admissions about Obamacare that undercut the mendacious sell-job he helped pioneer. Gruber stated privately, on several occasions, that his future analysis of the legal battle over state-based exchanges and subsidy eligibility would be dishonest, conceding the core argument of those anti-Obamacare lawsuits. Another Obamacare architect, Zeke Emanuel, finally confessed that people really couldn’t necessarily keep their doctors and plans — and that maybe the law wasn’t especially “affordable” after all. Now here’s Gruber sparring with Tucker Carlson last night, tossing another key Obamacare marketing slogan overboard. Democrats promoted their partisan scheme as a win/win panacea that would benefit everybody.  No more:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kvDlBIaZV9w
    “This was never supposed to help everybody, Tucker,” Gruber said… Gruber proceeded to say that wealthy Americans were hurt by the new taxes implemented by the Affordable Care Act. He also admitted that young, healthy people were hurt by Obamacare because the law eliminated the “discriminatory” health insurance market that existed before the law took effect. “The people who oppose the law are people who haven’t benefited from the law, but haven’t been hurt from the law,” he said. “They’ve just heard, in my view, they’ve heard a lot of bad misinformation about it.”

Ah, he’s back to the old, dumb “disinformation” chestnut, which once inspired hapless and frustrated former HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to muse about mass re-education. The problem is that the real-world results have been the opposite of these people said would happen.  We have them on tape.  Reality, not rhetoric, has burst the ‘Affordable’ Care Act bubble. Its defenders used to insist that Obamacare would create millions of winners and no losers. Coverage would be significantly expanded, costs would fall for all Americans, all while lowering healthcare-related spending and deficits. That fantasy has been endlessly exposed as a fraud, leaving people like Gruber with no choice but to tell the truth: There were always going to be winners and losers. What Gruber doesn’t add is that the losers have consistently outnumbered the winners, which is why the law has remained so unpopular:

As we’ve pointed out on multiple occasions, the number of Americans unaffected by Obamacare (the majority, for now) is designed to shrink under the law. We know this, in part, thanks to the behind-closed-doors candor of…Jonathan Gruber. And from the White House’s internal calculations. Democrats’ proposed “fixes” to the law would hasten the collapse of the individual market through a non-competitive “public option,” which would incentivize more employers to dump their workers into a government-subsizied pool — which, in turn, would crowd out the private market (which is already an accelerating trend). Other proposed methods of mending the failing law include spending even more money on subsidies, and whacking consumers with even higher fines for not being able to afford the increasing premiums, via the already-hated individual mandate tax. Obamacare is a stalling, wheezing, expensive, mandate-laden mess that may be helping some people, but is harming far more while violating virtually every central promise upon which it was built. It must be repealed and replaced with something better. That won’t be easy, but I cannot endorse center-right columnist Matt Lewis’ suggestion that the GOP should consider punting on the issue:

    The more I talk to conservative-leaning health care policy experts—sources that had previously helped me understand the debacle that would become Obamacare—the more convinced I am that this could all go horribly wrong…“It feels like Bush’s Social Security all over again,” one senior industry official told me. “It’s really hard to see how this ends up with as many people being covered at the same or lower costs. It’s a mess.” Even that may be a best-case scenario. Social Security reform was a bust that wasted President George W. Bush’s second-term political capital, but Republicans didn’t repeal Social Security. There is always the danger that this could go catastrophically wrong. Should Republicans actually kick off a new administration by engaging in a fool’s errand that is almost guaranteed to backfire? Sometimes you have to punt.

An Obamacare punt would be an unforgivable betrayal of the Republican base, which has righteously opposed the law since it was proposed in 2009. Republicans have run on repealing the law over four consecutive election cycles, winning both houses of Congress and the presidency in the process. To walk away from the problem now that they wield full control would be a harsh slap in the face to millions of voters. It cannot happen. And of course there’s the more important point that Obamacare is hurting real people, and needs to be uprooted. I share some of Lewis’ fears — namely, (a) that Republican infighting will stand in the way of a viable consensus alternative that can rally the sort of unity that will be required to accomplish something so technically difficult, and (b) that Democrats will obstinately block any effort to clean up the mess that they’ve created, then seek to blame the resulting chaos on Republicans. Sen. Claire McCaskill previewed that “party of no” strategy during Dr. Tom Price’s confirmation hearings this week: “What we have after the repeal is Trump care,” she said, suggesting that Republicans would garner zero Democratic votes.  

McCaskill represents a state that went heavily for Donald Trump in November and is seen as quite vulnerable in 2018. It’s also a bit rich listening to her whine about the possibility of party-line votes, given that she happily walked Obamacare’s hyper-partisan plank for her team in 2009 and 2010.  But her comments underscore the point that Republicans must not only rally behind a strong replacement plan; they need to be prepared to mercilessly blast Democrats who refuse to permit votes on ensuing solutions. Democrats used endless lies to foist an expensive scheme on an unwilling public. It has failed, based on the promises and metrics they established. And now that Republicans are fulfilling an unambiguous and consistent campaign promise, Democrats would rather have millions suffer and lose coverage, and watch costs continue to explode, than allow their failed experiment to be replaced. They’ve badly screwed up healthcare once, and now they’re poised to do it again. If that’s how they want to play this, they need to pay a painful political price.  Again.  I’ll leave you with Paul Ryan discussing the future of Obamacare on MSNBC last evening (the healthcare bit starts around the ten minute mark, and runs for about five minutes):

Make America Dumb Again

Everything with the Left boils down to a) discrimination or b) racism. Both of which they then ‘exploit’ using fear and paranoia.

More “tolerance” and “diversity” ahead… 🙂

Several professors at the University of California, Irvine encouraged their students to skip classes Friday to protest President Trump’s inauguration.

    One professor even encouraged students to “say hi” if they “see me at a protest Friday or Saturday.”

    Turnout was low during the walkout due to heavy rain, though a committed group of roughly 100 endured the elements to display signs reading “Fuck Amerikkka” and “No to fascism.”

Then, the real fun begins…

According to an anti-fascist group (aka leftist SJW fascist wanna-be’s) at the University of Kansas, flyers calling “Make America Great Again” and “anarcho-capitalism” coded language for neo-nazism were posted by the KU School of Social Welfare.

The flyers in question were found throughout campus Tuesday, including in Strong Hall and Twente Hall, and were sent anonymously to Campus Reform by students believing them to be the work of informal “anti-fascist” student groups that have sprung up in the wake of Donald Trump’s election.

“Below are pictures of a flyer from the School of Social Welfare…on how to spot coded racist language…”   

In addition to deciphering “coded” neo-Nazi language, the flyer warns that “opponents of safe spaces” may be more prone to joining white nationalist groups, and suggests that flyers from “hate groups” on campus should be torn down and reported.

 

Campus Reform reached out to Stand With ME—an anti-fascist, anti-Trump group at KU that recently labeled Young America’s Foundation a “hate group”—to ask whether the group was responsible for the flyers.

Stand With ME denied responsibility, but praised the flyers, which they jubilantly claimed had been created and distributed by the School of Social Welfare.

After Campus Reform confirmed its intention to report on the flyer and its creator, Stand With ME quipped back, “Report it. bye felicia [sic].”

Furthering the claims of Stand With ME was a Facebook post by a KU student who also attributed the flyers to the SOSW, accompanying photos with a caption reading, “Below are pictures of a flyer from the School of Social Welfare.”

“At this point, I’m sure you’ve heard about neo-Nazi groups recruiting on campus since the inauguration,” the student wrote. “Below are pictures of a flyer from the School of Social Welfare, available in Twente Hall, on how to spot coded racist language and symbols, and how to respond to any flyers, chalking, conversations, witnessed harassment, and the like.”

A commenter argued that students should not “normalize violence against people for their politics” but the student poster disagreed, saying “It shouldn’t be a radical or polarizing topic to say, ‘punch a nazi [sic].’”

[RELATED: Female student attacked for wearing Trump hat on campus]

“They are morally abhorrent, and we can’t treat this like a government spending disagreement,” the student declared.

Joshua Muse, a freshman at KU and a member of the school’s YAF chapter, said he found the flyer “laughable” in its cavalier handling of the accusation.

“It’s not a new tactic at all from the left to label those who disagree with them as Nazis; however, they usually try to have as much tact as [they] can when calling someone that,” he told Campus Reform. “In this case, they didn’t even try and it’s laughable.”

Muse also asserted that the demonization of Trump supporters on campus is nothing new, explaining that he has been called “a white supremacist, racist, and xenophobe simply for my support of Trump and his policies during the campaign.”

Campus Reform reached out to the School of Social Welfare for confirmation or denial of its role in posting the flyers, but did not receive a response in time for publication.

Campus Reform also contacted KU Media Relations on Wednesday morning and was told to expect a statement by 10:00 a.m. (EST). Shortly before 1:00 p.m., KU Director for News and Media Relations Erinn Barcomb-Peterson provided a statement asserting that “the fliers gave no indication of who produced or posted them” and citing the school’s policy on posting signage.

The new McCarthyism, Are you now or have you even been a Trump Supporter…

Lies, Damned Lies…

and FORMER President Barack Hussein Obama.

The Washington Post marked the end of the Obama administration with a list Thursday that likely didn’t please the outgoing president’s supporters.

For the last five years, the Post has made its political Fact Checker a staple of the publication. Ranked by “Pinocchios,” contenders receive one Pinocchio for a little lie and can earn up to four Pinocchios for the most outrageous of fibs.

Though the Post ran its trademark Fact Checker during President Barack Obama’s first campaign, it wasn’t until 2011 that it became a fixture there, so admittedly the publication missed some blatant dishonesty.

But the newspaper has fact-checked more than 250 statements made by the current president. On his last full day in office, the Post published a catalogue of Obama’s 10 biggest lies.

Included on the list, unsurprisingly, was Obama’s statement to the American public while rallying for Congress to pass his signature health-care legislation, Obamacare: “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it.”

“If you like your health-care plan, you can keep it”
This memorable promise by Obama backfired on him in 2013 when the Affordable Care Act went into effect and at least 2 million Americans started receiving cancellation notices. As we explained, part of the reason for so many cancellations is because of an unusually early (March 23, 2010) cutoff date for grandfathering plans — and because of tight regulations written by the administration. So the uproar could be pinned directly on the administration’s own actions.

Another whopper was Obama’s claim that all but 10 percent of the federal deficit was due to former President George W. Bush’s policies. Pushing back against criticisms of running up the deficit at an unparalleled rate with stimulus packages and bailouts, Obama made this claim during his 2012 campaign.

“90 percent of the budget deficit is due to George W. Bush’s policies”
During the 2012 campaign, Obama repeatedly reminded voters that he became president during a grim economic crisis. But he went too far when he claimed that only 10 percent of the federal deficit was due to his own policies. About half of the deficit stemmed from the recession and forecasting errors, but a large chunk (44 percent in 2011) were the result of Obama’s actions. At another point, Obama also falsely suggested that the Bush tax cuts led to the Great Recession.

And throughout Obama’s two terms in office, he has been quick to dismiss clear acts of terrorism — using phrases like “workplace violence” or blaming a YouTube video for an attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya. The Post also included his categorization of the Benghazi attack as “an act of terror” and his reference to ISIS as a “JV team.”

“The day after Benghazi happened, I acknowledged that this was an act of terrorism”
Obama did refer to an “act of terror” in the immediate aftermath of the 2012 Benghazi attacks, but in vague terms, wrapped in a patriotic fervor. He never affirmatively stated that the American ambassador died because of an “act of terror.” Then, over a period of two weeks, given three opportunities in interviews to affirmatively agree that the Benghazi attack was a terrorist attack, the president obfuscated or ducked the question. So this was a case of taking revisionist history too far for political reasons.

“I didn’t call the Islamic State a ‘JV’ team”
In 2014, Obama repeated a claim, crafted by the White House communications team, that he was not “specifically” referring to the Islamic State terror group when he dismissed the militants who had taken over Fallujah as a “JV squad.” But The Fact Checker obtained the previously unreleased transcript of the president’s interview with the New Yorker, and it’s clear that’s who the president was referencing.

But the Post did leave out some key falsehoods recited by Obama over the years. Here are a few:

“Over the past eight years, no foreign terrorist organization has successfully executed an attack on our homeland that was directed from overseas.”

Playing a semantics game, Obama misrepresented the fact that there have been many terrorist attacks carried out on American soil by those with ties to foreign terrorist organizations. In fact, in the case of the 2009 Fort Hood shooting in Killeen, Texas, Major Nidal Hasan murdered 14 people on the military base while shouting “allahu akbar” and was shown to be in direct contact with Al Qaeda terrorist leader Anwar al-Awlaki prior to the attack.

ISIS themselves also claimed responsibility for a 2015 attack in Garland, Texas, when two men were taken down by police officers after they shot up a community center hosting a Muhammad cartoon contest.

Over the last eight years, there were even more terrorist-related attacks in the country, including the San Bernardino attack, Boston Marathon attack, and a 2009 Little Rock, Arkansas, attack when Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad shot two soldiers at a military recruiting station. Muhammad also had ties to al-Qaeda.


“Let me say this as plainly as I can: by Aug. 31, 2010, our combat mission in Iraq will end.”

Obama claimed that combat operations would be finished by 2010 and later took credit for ending U.S. combat in Iraq. But his own former Defense Secretary Robert Gates disputed that in 2016, the White House did a “disservice” to troops by engaging in word games.

“I think that it is incredibly unfortunate not to speak openly about what’s going on,” Gates told MSNBC. “American troops are in action, they are being killed, they are in combat. And these semantic backflips to avoid using the term combat is a disservice to those who are out there putting their lives on the line.”


“We have not had a major scandal in my administration.”

Obama sidestepped the comprehensive list of scandals that plagued his tenure as president. These scandals include but are not limited to: the Operation Fast and Furious gun walking scandal, the IRS scandal involving IRS workers intentionally targeting Tea Party organizations, and his own Secretary of State Hillary Clinton using a private email server.

He was, after all. perfect. And you Neanderthals rejected him and his surrogate successor.

And Orwellian word games are still afoot.

But those are my “alternative facts”. 🙂

Grand Illusion

future

Allen West:

I love two genres of music, classical and classic rock. One of my favorite classic rock bands is the group Styx and one of my favorite songs of theirs is “Grand Illusion”. However, in the case of what we have seen post the 2016 presidential election through the inauguration of President Donald Trump, it appears the progressive socialist left is operating under a grand delusion.

In 2009, the progressive left embarked upon an ideological agenda evidencing a serious delusion and disconnection with America. Instead of focusing on two simple issues, economic growth and national security, Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and their acolytes engaged a direction for America that was not rooted in sound policy, but their interpretation of “fairness”.

The first case of delusion was to try and make the American people believe that Keynesian economic policy, tax and spend, was still viable. First thing out of the gate was a massive $1 trillion stimulus package that was centered upon what was termed “shovel ready jobs”. It was a matter of huge embarrassment when Obama sat on a stage with his economic council stating, “I guess shovel ready was not exactly ready”. The fact that Obama did so with a laugh and smirk was a slap in the face of the American taxpayer.

Obama in his eight years focused more on wealth redistribution, you know, we all do better when we “spread the wealth around”. Furthermore, Obama made the seminal statement which presented a window into the mindset of the progressive left when he stated, “if you own a business, you didn’t build that”. There could be no more disrespectful, delusional, assertion directed towards the hard working American and their indomitable entrepreneurial spirit. Obama and his disciples of economic disaster failed to grasp the concept that economic growth emanates not from Washington DC, but rather from the policies that unleash American investment, ingenuity, and innovation…along with production and manufacturing.

Due to his far left intransigent ideology, Obama sought not to get Americans back to work. His design was to expand the welfare nanny state of government dependency. The result of this delusion was our national debt going from $10.67T to $20T. We have exploded our food stamp and poverty rolls, and we have suffered the lowest workforce participation rate in some 40 years.

Second, Obama and the left sought to use effective free market policy to improve the healthcare situation in America. Instead, they believed there was a mandate to do what they had always wanted, push a government-driven healthcare system. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act a.k.a “Obamacare” was nothing more than a domestic wealth redistribution scheme, with some twenty new taxes. It spanned to gamut from increases in capital gains and dividends taxes to creation of an individual and employer mandate tax along with medical device and taxes on health savings accounts.

Obama said that there would be on average $2500 of savings and that you would be able to keep your doctor and insurance. The latter was awarded by Politifact as the “Lie of the Year”, 2013, funny, the year after Obama’s reelection…and he promised Vladimir Putin more flexibility. The American people in October 2016 did not see savings, they saw massive increases in their health insurance premiums, the result of the delusion of redistribution of healthcare. Obamacare turned out to be nothing more than a huge expansion of Medicaid. It proved unaffordable and did not provide protection for patients, but a segment of people got something for free. A rational policy approach would have meant Obama and his team focused on the real issue, but they overreached. And as Nancy Pelosi said, “we have to pass the bill, in order to find out what was in it”, a true example of delusion.

Third, Obama departed the White House trying to have us buy into his delusion by stating that on his watch there had not been a terrorist organization attack. He left still embracing the line that Ft. Hood was the result of “workplace violence”, and he commuted the sentence of one who had leaked over 700,000 classified documents – where some had died as a result of HIS nefarious actions.

Obama and the left could never articulate that the non-state, non-uniform unlawful enemy combatants we face on the 21st-century battlefield are Islamic terrorists and jihadists. Obama was more interested in freeing them under the delusion that their being detained in GITMO was an impetus of their hate and a recruiting tool. Instances of Islamic terrorist attacks on our soil were attributed to the lawful ownership of guns by law-abiding Americans. And the left, aided by the complicit liberal progressive media, tried to castigate those who understood this enemy as “islamophobes” – a moniker created by an Islamic organization with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.

I could go on about other critical issues, like a lack of focus on our border security leading to deaths of Americans like Kate Steinle.

The overarching issue is that we are watching the progressive left continue to wrap themselves in their own delusion. This past weekend there were marches focused on women’s rights. Where were those voices when Christian and Yazidi girls were being raped and sold as sex slaves by ISIS – that group Obama called the JV team, which was not Islamic. If this is about misogyny, where were those voices reference Bill Clinton regularly being welcomed as an “elder statesman” of the Democrat party?

More violence, threats, intimidation, rantings, protests, denigrating, disparaging, and demeaning language from the left will not win folks over to their cause. It will only further distance them from the America that has rejected and repudiated them, the electoral losses of the past eight years is evidence.

The delusion of the progressive left is that they are not conducting a self-analysis or assessment. Their way did not advance economic growth or national security. Albert Einstein said, “The definition of insanity is to continue to do the same thing, and expect different results”. Einstein’s definition certainly befits the grand delusion of the progressive left.

Sitting in JUDD-gment

*Warning* Danger, Will Robinson…The following screed by Leftist harpy Ashley Judd is very disturbing, very vile, and with extreme malice aforethought. So some wrapped it humorously in Star Trek.

But then again, the DC March that the Left is so proud of (that they have to diminish the crowd at the inaugural with dishonest photos and agenda-driven narratives) is a proponent of everything they are “fighting for”. Naturally. 🙂

sansour1
Approximately 200,000 people participated in a ‘Women’s March’ in D.C. on Saturday. One of the organizers of the march, Linda Sarsour is a Pro-Palestine Muslim activist.  

She also advocates for Sharia Law in America and has ties to terrorist organization, Hamas.

Linda Sarsour is very vocal about her support for Palestine and her utter hatred for Israel. She has ties to the terrorist organization, Hamas as the Daily Caller reports:

Linda Sarsour, one of the organizers behind Saturday’s Women’s March, being held in Washington, D.C., was recently spotted at a large Muslim convention in Chicago posing for pictures with an accused financier for Hamas, the terrorist group.

Sarsour, the head of the Arab American Association of New York and an Obama White House “Champion of Change,” was speaking at last month’s 15th annual convention of the Muslim American Society and Islamic Circle of North America.

While there, she posed for a picture with Salah Sarsour, a member of the Islamic Society of Milwaukee and former Hamas operative who was jailed in Israel in the 1990s because of his alleged work for the terrorist group.

Linda Sarsour is very active on Twitter. She is pro Sharia law and a couple of her tweets even have a seditious tone to them where she romanticizes Sharia law and hints at it taking over America whereby we would have interest free loans.

sansour2
The fact that an Islamic faction was one of the organizers of the Women’s March is laughable at best. Islam is responsible for the worst abuses of women and children not only throughout history, but at present day. Islamic supremacists who wish to impose Sharia law in America have infiltrated various leftist movements in order to appear as an oppressed minority.

Here is bizarre tweet from Maya Shwayder who is a correspondent for the Jerusalem Post in New York…is she really celebrating a Hijab? Wearing an American flag as a Hijab also goes against the U.S. Flag Code.

sansour3

I reached out to Linda Sarsour on Twitter to confront her about the utter abuses of women under Islam. I also brought up the fact that child marriage is abhorrent yet sanctioned under Sharia law. When I asked her if she denounces these abuses, below was her response to me…

sansour4

But she is Politically Correct, so she must be righteous and true.

And that proves it. 🙂

Lost in Translation

Now that we have a full on Snowflake & Liberal Meltdown in progress we need to understand the language of The Left. Much of this has been in my blog before, but this is a good guide provided by my faves over at Townhall.

The Liberal Translation Guide: 20 Translations of Things That Liberals Say

If you listen to liberals, it quickly becomes apparent that what they’re saying has very little relation to reality. They’re like the “Boy who Cried Wolf” except they spend their time yelling that the sheepdog is about to kill everyone while the wolves sneak in the back gate they left open while they were too busy arguing with their friends about whether eating Chinese food is “cultural appropriation.” Ok, maybe that’s not the best analogy, but the bottom line is that it’s difficult to understand what liberals really mean. So with that in mind, here’s a liberal translation guide that will help you understand what liberals are really saying.

1) “Peaceful Protest” – No liberals were hurt while throwing bricks through windows, demanding “Death to the pigs” or getting together in large gangs to waylay small, lone counter protesters from behind.

The “March for Life” that will occur soon will be utterly ignored and berated as much as possible and if one person so much as sneeze wrong it will be a “violent” protest according to the Left.

irony1

2) “Voter Suppression” — Cutting into Democrat vote totals by taking any steps to prevent voter fraud.

They are suppose to be able to rig the election in their favor and anything that gets in their way is wrong. So what if you need an ID to check out a Library book it’s “racist” when it comes to their agenda.

3) “The Constitution” – An outdated, irrelevant document that should be ignored unless you are claiming that some liberal agenda item is guaranteed by it despite the fact that no one noticed it for 200 years.

And if you want to cut off federal funding for it, well, you’re just a “nazi “fascist”. Speaking of which…

4) “Fascist” — People who want to cut spending, abide by the Constitution and get the government off your back.

Or simply have a different viewpoint that the Sanctimonious Liberal.

5) “We want the government out of our bedrooms” – We want the government out of our bedrooms…right after they force the Pope to buy us birth control and promise to support our children if we decide not to use the IUD suggested by the Pope because, “Who does that guy think he is, right?”

And pay for our abortions when we feel all god-like and decide that we are vastly more important that the inconvenience of the life we created with an evil male and that ending that life is our “right” and anyone who gets in the way of it is evil and “oppressive”.

I say, you want it, YOU pay for it. Not Me. Evil, little ole me…

 

6) “Greedy” — People who want to keep money they’ve earned instead of giving it to people who don’t work as hard, but do vote for Democrats.

7) “Sexism” – Disagreeing with Hillary Clinton, opposing the abortion of female babies or being against mentally ill men being allowed to use the bathroom with women.

Just disagreeing with a “feminist” or just be MALE period, is “sexist”.

8) “Radical position” – Relatively popular non-liberal positions that have been around as long as anyone can remember — that liberals have recently decided to oppose almost entirely to make themselves appear more sensitive. Example: Refusing to change the name of the Redskins or believing you can’t change genders via surgery is a radical position.

“Radical”= Not a Liberal orthodoxy.

9) “Angry, white male” – A white guy who votes Republican.

Or just a white male period. Especially, a Cisgender White Male.

That’s our “white privilege”.

10) “Anti-intellectual” – Those who refuse to acknowledge that liberal college professors who couldn’t cut it outside of a university or MSNBC are right about everything.

You’re a Neanderthal that just has a hard time banging the rocks together. You’re a complete moron. Just admit it and bow down to Homo Superior Liberalis, your Lord and Masters and WAY smarter and WAY better than you in everything. Absolutely everything. 🙂

11) “Racist” — Those who believe that people should be judged by the content of their character, not the color of their skin and those who believe in enforcing the immigration laws that are already on the books.

Or just anyone who is White and not a liberal. That usually is enough.

Good thing Liberals believe in “diversity” and “tolerance” don’t you think?

12) “Climate change denier” — Someone who actually judges global warming based on the available scientific evidence instead of coming up with a socialistic agenda first and then passing out grant money to any scientists who are willing to attempt to justify it.

consensus

 

13) “Bipartisanship” – When Republicans cooperate with Democrats to push the liberal agenda. Not to be confused with “selling out” which happens when liberals cooperate with Republicans to push their agenda.

Said this many, many times. BY-partisanship, now called “unity”. 🙂

14) “Heartless” – Supporting programs based on whether they work and are good for the country instead of selecting programs to back based on how good they make you feel about yourself.

Disagreeing with the morally superior Liberal. Period.

15) “Open Minded” – Mindlessly agreeing with Nancy Pelosi and Michael Moore 100% on every issue.

Being a Liberal drone. YOU  are open to them agreeing with you. But that’s it.

16) “A Courageous Speech” — When one liberal gives a self-congratulatory speech to another group of liberals that restates things they all believe.

Madonna and Ashley Judd yesterday at “Women’s March”:

Celebrity Ashley Judd “goes low” setting the tone for the Women’s March on Washington, D.C. Saturday. The 48-year-old actress recited a poem by 19-year-old Nina Donovan from Tennessee. The poem titled “I Am a Nasty Woman” includes lines like: 

“I am a nasty woman, Not as nasty as a man who looks like he bathes in Cheetos dust, I am not as nasty as a swastika painted on a pride flag, I am not as nasty as racism, fraud, conflict of interests, homophobia, sexual assault, transphobia, white supremacy, misogyny, ignorance, white privilege. I’m a nasty woman. A loud, vulgar, proud woman. I’m not nasty like the combination of Trump and Pence served up to me in my voting booth, I’m nasty like the battles my grandmothers fought to get me into that voting booth.”

Madonna showed up at the anti-Trump rally Saturday afternoon around 2:50 p.m. EST where she was slated to perform. But before singing, she spoke for a few minutes.

During that time, Madonna cursed repeatedly on live television, telling “detractors” of the women’s march: “f**k you.” According to Heavy.com, Madonna also lamented over Hillary Clinton losing the election, saying that she believes Trump’s win should “wake us the f**k up.”

“To our detractors that insist that this march will never add up to anything: F–k you!” Madonna exclaimed.

Then Madonna claimed she has thought about blowing up the White House.

“Yes I’m angry, yes I’m outraged, yes I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House,” she told the crowd, “but I know that this won’t change anything.”

That’s righteous rage, not violent threats, because a Liberal said it.

17) “The American Flag” — A symbol of oppression waved by ignorant, bucktoothed hillbillies dumb enough to think that this is a great place to live.

18) “Guns” — The cause of all crime.

Especially, White People and Cops.

19) “Jesus” — Someone who is completely irrelevant to any and all political matters unless you’re claiming He would definitely support gay marriage or abortion.

Islam, kills and oppresses women and gays. But they are politically correct so you’re just “islamophobic” is you point this out.

20) “Hands up, don’t shoot” —The police shouldn’t be allowed to shoot people with their hands up or people pointing toy guns at them or people trying to kill them or pretty much anybody, for any reason.

Well, White cops shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near a minority, period. They are all racists.

NObama Day

nobama-day

I want to thank the American people for a wonderful day that I thought would never come.

I would also like to thank them for The Left for showing themselves because nothing says “unity” and “tolerance” like looting and violence. 🙂

Or watching a creepy old man checking out the First Daughter.

And Michelle, the deposed Bitch had that scowl on her face the whole time. Barack at least faked it very well. And to Hillary’s credit she showed up and showed more class than her husband did or the 1/3 of Congressional Democrats who had a pout-in somewhere else.

Yesterday was the nearly unique day where Americans xfer power peacefully and graciously from one Administration to another without violence, bloodshed, or political or military coups.

King Obama abdicated graciously. Queen Michelle, not so much.

We had all the Living Presidents that could make it (our best wishes to President George HW Bush and his wife who were in the hospital) to the ceremony.

That’s quite an accomplishment.

Now it’s his turn…

trump-family

Though he will be under attack 24/7/365 by “journalists” in the Liberal Media and The Democrats and Liberals in general.

Have they filed for his impeachment yet? 🙂

Jan 20, 2017

Complex.com (though Liberals contempt is not complex at all) If you rolled your eyes at all those “we’re going to die” jokes yesterday, it may have been premature. Now that Donald Trump has officially been sworn in as the 45th President of the United States of America, his campaign to diminish human rights came swifter than we expected. With the former reality star’s team assuming control of WhiteHouse.gov, part of the presidential transition has been wiping the website of any mentions of civil rights, climate change, and healthcare. (In comparison, the site had “issues” tabs devoted to these topics under Barack Obama’s team.)

Want information about climate change? Well too bad, because our new president thinks it’s a conspiracy created by the Chinese government.

Looking for healthcare? LOL good luck with that.

 

Interested in learning about civil rights? Not from the billionaire who trash-talked Georgia Rep. and prominent Civil Rights leader John Lewis. Who trashed him as “illegitimate”.

Want to learn what Trump thinks of immigration besides wanting to build a “yuge” wall and making Mexico pay for it? Sorry, too bad.

Want to know what Trump thinks about the issues facing the LGBT community? At least you can look forward to a “healing” dance with Caitlyn Jenner.

 

As some have noted, the new site is poorly written and researched, as well as underdeveloped, so it’s possible that these scrubs are an oversight—plus, it’s standard protocol for incoming administrations to delete all existing materials on the official site. But given Trump’s divisive and inflammatory stances, it feels like the first step toward a distinctively less great America. 

 

Good with that “unity” thing. The “tolerance” of the Left for anyone who isn’t 100% in lockstep with what they want, feel, and think is smaller than The Grinch Heart before Little Sue Who.

Diversity is Exclusion of anyone who isn’t them.

And Equality?

Well, they hate everyone who isn’t kissing their Homo Superior Liberalis ass equally.

it’s only the beginning… of the end!

Said one Liberal on Facebook.
But yet, it was only radical Leftists who were violent and petulant yesterday.

White nationalist Richard Spencer punched in the face camera while doing interview

 (loved the You tube title this leftist gave this clip. It shows their “unity” and “tolerance”)
But the best moment, from a cynical viewpoint, because I was thinking the very same thing at the time…Bill Clinton checking out Ivanka Trump on the platform and Hillary busting him with a look. Hilarious…
though the You Tubers cut it up I saw it live on TV. He was checking her out and Hillary just him a “Oh BILL!” look.
It was the funniest moment of the whole day.

The Day I Thought Would Never Come

I , Hillary Rodham Clinton, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States

<<Record scratching noise>>

JUST KIDDING! 🙂

winning1

I never thought this day would come. As anyone who reads my blog knows I had no faith in the American people to do the right thing and resist their programming and the arrogant, narcissistic, biased Media onslaught.

I thought Trump had no shot either. I was a Ted Cruz guy. But I was a #NeverHillary person first and foremost.

I hoped against hope. I am a pessimist by nature. So I always expect the worst and then if doesn’t happen I’m pleasantly surprised.

Today, I’m giddy. I’m nervous. I’m EXCITED.

Ding, Dong, THE BITCH is NOT MY PRESIDENT! 🙂

And the Petulant Liberals are throwing a Grand WHINE-In today. CNN is broadcasting stories about how the Liberals could stay in power if our new President, Vice-President and Congress were wiped out in an attack.

Yes, the Left is so desperate for this not to be reality that they went there with their inside voice outside.

My prediction of them freaking out every odd numbered second and melting down every even numbered second seems to be holding to accurate so far.

And the attack dog media that “re-discovered” ‘journalism’ is going to be on the attack 24/7/365.

Mind you what the Liberals are doing in DC right now would have been considered “racist” by them in 2009. But hypocrisy and doublethink are as natural as breathing to a Liberal.

But let’s Celebrate.

Liberal arrogance took it in the ass.

So a large number of Congressional Democrats are going to pout and not attend the Inauguration.

mad-democrats

Enjoy the moment. Enjoy the Meltdown.

The real work starts tomorrow. The Imperial attacks from the Liberal Empire go into hyperspace overdrive. It will be crazy. It will be nuts. It will be Lies, damned lies, and Democrats. And if they don’t file for impeachment by 12:01 today pm I will be shocked.

Cortney wrote about the protesters at DeploraBall, an inauguration party for Trump supporters at the National Press Club in Washington D.C. needless to say, things are getting a bit rowdy, with police being deployed near the entrance to keep order. A fire was started in the street from a kid named “Connor (or Carter)” who told Fox News’ Griff Jenkins, who was reporting for Tucker Carlson’s show, that he was the one who started it.

https://www.facebook.com/plugins/video.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FFoxNews%2Fvideos%2F10155018970301336%2F&show_text=0&width=560When Jenkins asked him why he started it, the kid said, “because I felt like it and because I’m just uh—saying screw our president.”

Ah, the future of America. So precious… 😦

“Okay—well there you have it,” said Jenkins as he walked away

Exit question: Where are the parents of this kid and are they sane?

Answer: They are proud of him and no they are not sane, they are Liberals. 🙂

Now the Rebels have taken down the Empire’s most feared weapon due to a fatal flaw, today we celebrate, and then we move onto Episode II:  The Liberal Empire Strikes Back!

President-elect Donald Trump replaces President Faily McWorsethancarter Friday, but we’re not going to be able to Netflix and chill in the fight for freedom. The left and its establishment allies are desperate to regain the power they see slipping away, and we need to understand that the only way to stop them is to beat them to a pulp and leave them whimpering in the fetal position, crying out for their genderfluid mommies.

Repeatedly, and often.

The left’s strategy is simple – deny normal Americans normalcy. After all, that’s what we really want, a return to normal. We haven’t experienced real normal since the Democrats denied the legitimacy of W’s election in 2000 – you know, during one of those time frames when denying the legitimacy of the president was cool, a phenomenon that coincidentally only occurs whenever a Republican wins. Then came 9/11 followed by 15-plus years of botched wars and economic decline, along with an unprecedented cultural offensive against normal Americans. Once the only place you heard that average Americans were racist sexist homophobic everythingist everythingphobic was on college campuses; now, with the active assistance of Obama and his collaborators, it’s everywhere – in our entertainment, in the media, in our faces.

And we’re sick of it. #ThisIsWhyYouGotTrump

We want to return to normality, and in an ironic twist of fate it was Donald Trump, the most unnormal guy imaginable, who promised it. Hillary Clinton promised more war and more weakness, more of the same economic malaise that has left most of America suffering, and much, much more of the same cultural scolding and calculated oppression of anyone so subhuman as to not live in a city and believe there are only two sexes. Trump committed to return to America’s normal state of economic prosperity, to America’s normal state of military supremacy abroad, to America’s normal state of self-confidence in our own exceptionalism. And we wanted to go back to a time where creepy activists weren’t trying to shoehorn men in skirts into our little girls’ locker rooms.

Normalcy. It’s what we want, and liberals want to deny it to us in order to doom Donald Trump and reopen their path back into power.

So how will they do it? Constant resistance at every turn. They will ignore norms and rules – remember, norms and rules are only supposed to constrain us. They will lie, cheat, and engage in any conduct that they believe will help their hateful cause. A huge part of the progressive effort will go toward policing their own for any weakness or faltering in their lockstep opposition to everything Trump and the GOP do. Take that, Springsteen cover band! How dare you perform the Boss’s hackneyed anthems for the president? The good thing is we will get to watch four to eight years of the left devouring itself. I’m already stockpiling the popcorn.

Going to be quite a show. Can’t wait for the big budget Trump Assassination Movie…

In Washington, there are Democrats whose constituents supported Trump and want him to succeed. In a normal world, these would-be moderates might cooperate and compromise with the GOP majority to influence policy, but their own party absolutely will not let them do that now. The hard left activists are in control, and they will crush any dissent. So the Democrats who might have moderated and played along now have to defy their party to do so knowing the activists will not be forgiving. And it’ll be wonderful watching the Dems kneecap their 2018 candidates to force utterly symbolic losing party line votes on cabinet appointments and on things like the Obamacare repeal

This is great for us. It will force the Dems in moderate or even red areas to fall even further out of step with their voters – something that has cost the Dems over a thousand seats across the country since Obama was sworn in. In 2018, something like 25 Democrats or Dem-voting independents are up for election to the Senate, many in moderate areas. If Trump is seen as succeeding, especially on the economy, that could make the midterms a Democrat bloodbath. A wonderful, delicious bloodbath.

Then there is the cultural fight. In Hollywood, the left is piling on anyone who refuses to completely reject Trump and, by extension, all of us normals. Look at Nicole Kidman, who the fascists attempted to crucify for simply saying what Hillary Clinton had been saying right up until she lost – that you ought to accept the legitimacy of the winner. Look at the death threats against a blind opera singer. Look at those clowns lecturing us at their awards shows/narcissism orgies. As the left always does, it is relying on fear to enforce its creepy conformity.

McCartyhism was never so in vogue as it is Hollywood. The land of “tolerance” and “diversity”. They hate anyone who isn’t bone fide liberal equally. 🙂

It will work for a bit, especially since most entertainers today are craven wusses – in World War II, Jimmy Stewart left stardom to fly B-24s over Ludwigshafen. Now, adverse election results make them flee to Arizona to commune with rocks.

BUT STAY HELL OUT OF HERE! WE have too many California Liberals already!

Many entertainers will decide to lower their profiles in order to avoid the Hollywood Gestapo, but normals won’t like the bullying. Normals generally think people should be allowed to say what they want, and they generally think you should respect the president even if you didn’t vote for him – pretty much what Nicole Kidman said. Do you think more normal people or fewer will be going to the next Meryl Streep movie? Sure, her target demographic of loveless cat women will always show up to watch her talk in a funny accent, but the rest of us? Hard pass.

Then there is the fake moral posturing. We will see plenty of this tactic, and we need to laugh at it. The notion that because John Lewis got beat up by fellow Democrats a half century ago somehow immunizes him from criticism for his cheesy lies about and general scumminess toward Republicans today is a joke. It’s always fun to watch liberals unilaterally designate “heroes” and inform us we’re not allowed to say anything negative about their antics. When John McCain was running what could only in the loosest sense of the word be called a campaign against Obama, the left wasn’t enforcing the Hero Exemption on his behalf. That only became a thing again when it became a useful thing again after Trump ignored it. Democrats don’t get to choose my heroes, or yours, and we need to aggressively reject this tiresome gambit.

What about the lying mainstream media? Those hacks – no one’s listening to them anymore. Still, every day every story is going to be about the tyranny that is Trump, except there won’t be any actual tyranny. Homelessness is going to make a big comeback now that Obama is gone. Everything will hit women, minorities, and men claiming to have uteruses hardest. No one cares. In pulling this same nonsense, the dying media will only hasten its own, long-overdue, demise. Hey media, remember those false perv stories about Trump – who do you think suffered a net loss of credibility, him or you?

Then there are the boycotts. Now, wussy corporate leaders will often roll over when a bunch of leftists tell them what to do.

Example: Ringling Bros. Who thinks the Leftists who took down this lion are going to be happy and go away? HA! Zoos are next, then pet stores, and then they will come for you, my pretty…

That’s how Liberals roll.

But it gets old. Eventually, companies are going to realize that you can’t succeed when you are alienating at least half of the population. Plus now we have a president who will not hesitate to call out dirtbags. A couple tweets from the president about companies who are dissing his supporters and that may reorient their priorities. Now, do we want a president directing his people away from private companies that engage in policies he dislikes? In theory, no. But now that you libs have changed the rules, hell yes! We need to deal the pain right back at them – it’s the only way they will learn.

They won;t learn,but we still need to do it. Thoughtcrime is Death. 🙂

A key problem with the liberal resistance strategy is that constant activism is exhausting. It’s even exhausting to watch – normal people are already tuning out the daily deluge of anti-Trump fake news in the lying mainstream media. The liberal strategy is to turn everything up to 11, but you can’t do that for four years. While the hardcore left is invested in its hatred of our new president, most of America is not. They don’t want every waking hour of their lives spent listening to people whine about Trump, especially when they generally like what he’s doing. The fact is Trump is already doing well. The market is up. He’s getting commitments for new jobs from big companies. Obamacare is getting a stake through its putrid heart. And the normals are going to tune out of the hate and reelect him to spite you liberal twerps. (Kurt Schlichter)

 
I hope so.

Then we have to get a Whiny RINO Congress to do what they have been promising to do for years but never had the balls to do it. Now you own it.

I was going to talk about the increase in Racism because of our “first Black President” but my WHITE PRIVILEGE got in the way.

Or was that because I’m a Cisgender Male?  🙂

A racist, homophobic, transphobic,islamophobic, sexist bigot. Yeah, that’s the ticket…

Thanks, King Barack Hussein Obama, you definitely made a difference. 🙂

The fact that the Left is comparing Obama to MLK (nearly defying to sainthood their God) is frankly disgusting because they are polar opposites, but hey, it’s the Ministry of Truth and The Left, it’s not like they tell people anything other than what THEY want you to hear or know.

NY Daily News: Sadly, for the many of us who saw the election of Barack Obama as some type of personification of Dr. King’s dream, we are now living in a regressive nightmare. A crass, sexist, billionaire bigot is about to take over the Oval Office. Our best glimpse into what Dr. King would say or do may very well be found in one of his surviving protégés — Congressman John Lewis — who has called Trump out for what he will soon be.

An illegitimate President.

Political Cartoons by Glenn McCoy

Political Cartoons by Bob Gorrell

And just how great he was and the Left will be in mourning wailing on about their nightmares and their fear and intimidation so let’s have a reality check, courtesy of Sean Hannity:

The last eight years have brought the lowest labor participation rates since the 1970s, with 95 million Americans out of the labor force. The so-called recovery has been the weakest one since the 1940s. We have the lowest home ownership rate in 51 years – despite mortgage rates artificially kept at record lows. Over 11 million more Americans are on food stamps since he became president and more than 43 million Americans now live in poverty. One of every six men between 18 and 34 are either in prison or out of work.

And by the time he leaves office, President Obama will have added more to our national debt that all the other presidents before him combined. When President Obama finally leaves office, the national debt will be almost $20 trillion. Prior to taking office, the man who has tacked on $9.3 trillion to what our children and grandchildren owe once said the then $9 trillion national debt was “unpatriotic.”

Then, of course, there’s President Obama’s assault on the business community through his burdensome regulations. Consider this: The estimated cost of regulations under Obama is a staggering $873 billion. That includes a shocking $344 billion cost in Environmental Protection Agency regulations alone. All told, the number of new regulations that been finalized under President Obama checks in at almost 3,000.

When it comes to jobs, President Obama is always bragging about how many he’s created, but facts are stubborn things. In the past eight years, America has lost more than 300,000 manufacturing jobs and, although the president doesn’t mention it, America had a global trade deficit of over $732 billion last year.

Yet another drag on the American economy is ObamaCare, his signature legislation and crowning achievement. Remember when Obama repeatedly told you that under his plan you could keep your doctor, you keep your plan and that that it would drive down overall health costs to the point the average family would save $2,500 a year? And how ObamaCare would actually reduce the deficit?

“No matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people,” Obama said on June 15, 2009. “If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan, period.”

Well, millions of people lost their doctors and their insurance plans, but that was just the start of the ObamaCare disaster. This year, Affordable Care Act premiums are exploding by 25 percent on average. In Arizona, they’re jumping by a stunning 116 percent. Deductibles are so high that even if ObamaCare recipients pay their premiums, they can’t afford to use their coverage in many cases.

As for the average American family saving $2,500 a year on health care, the exact opposite has happened. According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, the increase in health care costs for employer-sponsored benefits since 2008 is now $5,462. That is a 43 percent increase.

It just keeps getting worse. Choice in health care providers available through ObamaCare is evaporating. In states like Alabama, Alaska, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Wyoming, people buying on the exchanges have a single insurer to choose from. It’s because insurers are now pulling out after losing massive amounts of money. So much for choice.

So what about foreign policy? Obama gave Iran, the No. 1 state sponsor of terror, $150 billion and allows them to continue to spin their centrifuges? And of course, he paid a ransom for four U.S. citizens Iran held prisoner, reversing longstanding policy and signaling to the world that there’s money to be made from taking Americans captive.

Obama drew a “red line” when he warned Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad not to use chemical weapons. When Assad crossed it, Obama did nothing. Partly as a result, that country civil war continues and has created a massive worldwide humanitarian crisis.

In Egypt, Obama he gave Mohammed Morsi, the former Muslim Brotherhood head who became president but is now in prison for murder, F-16s, tanks and $1.5 billion in taxpayer funds.

In Libya, the president helped overthrew Qaddafi, and that country has since fallen into chaos, creating a hotbed for ISIS.

And speaking of ISIS, back 2014, President Obama called the world’s most dangerous terrorist organization the”JayVee” team. The next year, just hours before the horrific ISIS attack in Paris that killed 130 people, Obama assured us that ISIS was “contained.” ISIS was never a junior varsity team, and certainly was not contained. In fact, it seized vast parts of Iraq because Obama created a vacuum when he pulled U.S. troops out too early for purely political reasons.

There’s no doubt President Obama’s legacy is one of severe damage to the country. But the good news is that we’ll have a new president in 10 days in Donald Trump.

The president-elect has promised to clean up this mess and he has a very clear plan to do it. He will create millions of new jobs, lower taxes, reform the tax code, negotiate better and fairer trade deals, cut burdensome regulations, encourage multi-national corporations to bring back trillions of dollars, promote energy independence repeal and replace ObamaCare, build a border wall, vet refugees and appoint originalist justices to the U.S. Supreme Court.

And the soon-to-be President Trump won’t be afraid to say “radical Islam” while destroying ISIS. He will “drain the swamp,” and reduce the size of government, eliminate bureaucratic waste, fraud, abuse and send control over public education back to the states.

There’s reason to believe real, lasting change is coming our way. It will be up to all of us to hold Trump and his team accountable.

Obama’s Greatest Hits Vol. IV

I ran from Iran. I lied, again, so what.

Fortune: January 17 (2016), the same day five American hostages were released from custody in Iran, a jetliner dispatched from the U.S. delivered $400 million in cash to Tehran’s Mehrabad Airport. Heightening the air of skulduggery, Iranian guards unloaded pallets loaded not with U.S. dollars but Swiss francs, euros and other foreign currencies.

The shipment was a secret until The Wall Street Journal broke the story on August 2.

WAY TO GO MR. TRANSPARENCY!

And these “journalists” are the same ones who were colluding with Hillary to rig the Election that she was so bad at that she lost.

Transcript: http://www.westernjournalism.com/obama-admin-lied-iran-deal-sell-american-people/

Yet, another example of “the end justifies the means” by Liberals.

“All these newspapers used to have foreign bureaus,” he said. “Now they don’t. They call us to explain to them what’s happening in Moscow and Cairo. Most of the outlets are reporting on world events from Washington. The average reporter we talk to is 27 years old, and their only reporting experience consists of being around political campaigns. That’s a sea change. They literally know nothing.”– Ben Rhodes

Does this remind you of someone else?

Jonathan Gruber, perhaps.

An architect of the federal healthcare law said last year that a “lack of transparency” and the “stupidity of the American voter” helped Congress approve ObamaCare.

In a clip unearthed Sunday, Massachusetts Institute of Technology Professor Jonathan Gruber appears on a panel and discusses how the reform earned enough votes to pass.

He suggested that many lawmakers and voters didn’t know what was in the law or how its financing worked, and that this helped it win approval.

“Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage,” Gruber said. “And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass.”

That elitist liberal contempt just dripping off them. The ruthlessness and lack of morals or ethics of any kind whatsoever is indicative of The Obama Administration.

It took 7 1/2 months of lies and distortions because they had to fess up. Then it burned hot and the media that colluded with Obama went back to doing what they had been doing like it was nothing.

So what if they lied, were still liberals and we are The Ministry of Truth. It’s not like Obama Lied, People Died… 🙂

I blame it on You Tube, like the Media and The Administration did after Benghazi. Where actual people died and no in the DC echo chamber or White House really cared.

Since then, Republicans from Donald Trump to Paul Ryan have assailed the White House for paying a gigantic ransom when government-paid ransom is barred under U.S. law, and for hiding the ploy from a public already highly skeptical of the U.S.-Iran nuclear agreement. President Obama denied the payment to Tehran was a ransom. The White House contends the payment simply settled a decades-long financial dispute, and that the settlement was fully disclosed in January—although at the time, officials made no mention that the $400 million arrived in Iran the same as the hostages were freed, a confluence of events bound to arouse suspicion.

Aug 2016 (Fox):  State Department spokeswoman Elizabeth Trudeau says the U.S. couldn’t say more about the Jan. 19 payments because of diplomatic sensitivities. They involved 13 separate payments of $99,999,999.99 and final payment of about $10 million. There was no explanation for the Treasury Department keeping the individual transactions under $100 million.

The money came from a little-known fund administered by the Treasury Department for settling litigation claims. The so-called Judgment Fund is taxpayer money Congress has permanently approved in the event it’s needed, allowing the president to bypass direct congressional approval to make a settlement.

Slush fund.

The U.S. announced the controversial nuclear deal with Iran on July 13, 2015. At a news conference on January 16, President Obama declared that the U.S. was lifting the first raft of sanctions against Iran. He also stated that the U.S. would return $1.7 billion to Iran, as agreed in the negotiations at the Hague. That same day, Tehran released the U.S. hostages, and the U.S. freed seven Iranians detained for violating financial and other U.S. sanctions on their home country. Hence, the return of the five Americans appeared to be one side of a prisoner exchange with Tehran.

But Obama didn’t mention that the same day, $400 million was being shipped over 6000 miles for deposit in Iran’s treasury. “Normally you’d use a bank transfer,” says Sick. “But Congress banned dollar transfers to Iran, so the government had to find another way. So they bought foreign currency, and transferred it in cash.”

He gave Billions of Dollars to a Terrorist nation saying they wouldn’t use the money to build nukes to kill us with…right.

Obama was always very fond of Middle Eastern Terrorists. Never, ever, committing the Thoughtcrime of “Islamic Terrorist” or even “radical islam” no matter what.

“This was not a quid pro quo for hostages,” says Barbara Slavin, acting director of the Future of Iran Initiative at the Atlantic Council. “It was an opportunity for countries with no diplomatic relations to clear away a number of diplomatic disputes. For the U.S, it was important to get back the detained Americans, and the Iranians wanted their seven citizens out of jail.”

And if I want to keep my Doctor, and my health plan… 🙂

Oh and that Nuclear “deal”, the one where they billion of $$$ and basically no actual restrictions that mean anything? Yeah, well, don’t worry, he’s got that covered. 🙂

Good thing there were no terrorist attacks on America during his Presidency!! 🙂

“We should take great pride in the progress that we’ve made over the last eight years. That’s the bottom line. No foreign terrorist organization has successfully planned and executed an attack on our homeland.”
–President Obama, remarks at MacDill Air Force Base, Tampa, Fla., Dec. 6, 2016

And we know he’s no lying…:)  Ever the master of Orwellian speech.

By focusing on a “foreign terrorist organization,” the president leaves out home-grown terrorists who might have been inspired by terror groups overseas. And by using the word “successfully,” the president manages to avoid having to acknowledge the one documented case that is clearly linked to a terror group.

12/25/2009: On Friday morning, in Detroit, Michigan, United States, as the plane was approaching the destination, a would-be suicide bomber, identified as Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a 23-year-old Nigerian national, on board of Northwest Flight 253 from Amsterdam, Netherlands detonated a device that was attached to his body while on the plane.

But thats a lie for another day…

THIS JUST IN, JUST NOW: Fort Lauderdale shooter Esteban Santiago told FBI agents he carried out his Jan. 7 deadly shooting in the name of the Islamic State, CNN reports.

Whoops, there he goes again. I suppose this will be Trump’s Fault…

Lies, Damed Lies, and Democrats!

The end justified the means.

The Narrative is sacrosanct.

And this is still out there, waiting to get back it’s power.

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.

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).

Image result for obamacare increases premiums $4500
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.

“Hope and Change”

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?!

YOU DID BUILD 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. 🙂

Political Cartoons by Steve Kelley

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!
