Petulance @ 1600

Jeremy Oliver, a resident of Temecula, California–a town that neighbors Murrieta–told Breitbart Texas that local police officers warned the protesters that “it’s going to get ugly.”

Oliver said, “The feds are pissed that they haven’t been able to use this facility. Officers out there warned people that federal agents will be in Murrieta on Monday–they are going to get the next bus through no matter what. Riot gear and shields will be used to push the crowd back.”

John Henry, a Murrieta resident since 1991, was told the same thing by local officers. 

“We’re being told that federal Marshals or ICE will be here in the next few days and that they are bringing riot gear,” Henry said. “They’re apparently going to be blocking off the street with concrete blockades so that no vehicles can get through. The River County Sheriff’s Department showed up last night and brought a huge watch tower that shoots up into the air 35 feet.”

Think about that. Riot police against legal citizen because they want to block Illegals. Who is more important to this administration, the actual American people or The Agenda on his new Welfare Democrats? 🙂

Derek Hunter: We don’t have a president leading our government; we have a petulant child throwing a series of temper tantrums.

Barack Obama has never shown an aptitude for leadership, mostly because he’s never led anything. But in his limited pre-government career as a community organizer, his job was not to accomplish anything. It simply was to get people riled up over the “injustice du-jour,” make them believe he has the cure for what ails them, and raise money. He’s run his presidency on this snake-oil-salesman mentality; only now, he’s begun to run out of suckers to bilk.

There always will be a base of sycophants, ideologues, profiteers, lemmings, low-information voters and, to put it simply, idiots, who will support any politician, no matter how awful. A Quinnipiac Poll released this week pegs that number at 8 percent for President Obama.

Best and worst presidents

And 4% who though the question was about the Kardasians… 🙂

Yes, after doubling the national debt, sustained high unemployment, the self-inflicted border crisis, the VA body count, weaponizing the IRS, all the scandals, the broken promises, the proven lies, the golf, the lavish vacations, the Supreme Court smack-downs, there is still 8 percent of the American public who think Barack Obama is the greatest president since World War II.

But 33 percent believe he’s the worst in the same time period, more than any other president.

People are waking up. Unfortunately, it’s too late.

It seems every week now the president gives a speech on how he’s going to act as though he’s a dictator because Congress won’t give him everything he wants. The “constitutional lawyer in the Oval Office” takes great joy in pretending the other two co-equal branches of government do not exist. And they might as well not exist, given the president’s interaction with them.

When not jetting off to public events around the country, always conveniently scheduled around Democratic fundraisers so taxpayers can pick up the travel tab, the president golfs. In fact, while on his “official trips” the president golfs. The only thing that can pull him off the links are campaign-style rallies and fundraisers. There’s never been a president more interested in the trappings of the office but less interested in the duties of it.

 

Even Democrats on Capitol Hill are grumbling about how disinterested President Obama has become in engaging Congress. The president never again will face the voters, but members of Congress will this fall. And they are the only conduit through which the people can take out their frustration over Obama’s failures. His allies are trying to push the tired mantra of a “do-nothing Congress,” but that can’t trump a “do-everything-wrong president.”

Even as the president golfs and ignores his duties, he still has an agenda. He could, through the traditional method of compromise and working with Congress, get a sizable portion of his agenda passed. But that doesn’t interest Barack Obama because compromise would mean giving Republicans something. You can’t “fundamentally transform” the country through giving an inch or doing things that will improve the economy. It must fall, people must be scared to death, if they are to accept a full-on intrusive, progressive government.

Barack Obama chooses to ignore tradition, ignore precedent, ignore the Constitution and use his magical pen to impose his will and his magical phone to rally his 8 percent mob. He has bet his place in history not on results, but on the cult of personality his handlers and minions in the media have built around him. And it is formidable.

The president’s “legend” was built before a single vote was cast. He was the smartest, most gifted man to ever run for office because, well, people sitting in front of television cameras said he was. There was more proof of Bigfoot than his brilliance, but a lie repeated earnestly enough, especially to a people trained to look externally for solutions to problems in their lives, has a way of obtaining credibility that the truth has difficulty overcoming. The truth is a tree and the lie a weed – it needs time to truly take root and grow, but it then sprouts quickly and can choke out anything else near it.

Barack Obama can give a speech, but his words are petty, small and meaningless. But the delivery, the visual of his Mussolini jaw jutting forward with confidence, the cheering crowd reminiscent of a revival meeting, the follow-up shameless repetition of known untruths all served a small part in intoxicating people into believing in the messenger and ignoring the message.

The euphoria has worn off all but the lost few unreachables. With his own dictates being rejected by the courts and the masses, his desperation is growing. Impotent in most legal ways, his shallow brand of leadership leaves him only with public temper tantrums, insults and complaints unworthy of his office. His “desperation bottom” has not yet been reached; he will keep falling because the alternative is beyond him.

That the American people have seen through the veneer of Barack Obama means there will be more late-night stand-up routines packaged as policy speeches, more complaints about people he won’t talk to being unwilling to work with him. Were there not an infinite supply of strawmen, they would be sacrificed to extinction in his remaining years. The only thing Obama will use more frequently than strawmen between now and Jan. 20, 2017, is the “mulligan.”

Our nation deserves better and will be better. The United States is strong enough to survive even the amount of damage one petulant man determined to destroy it can inflict. Not matter how many temper-tantrums he throws.

Provided he’s not succeeded By Queen Hillary, that is.

Happy New Year, New Congress: Be Prepared to be Electrocuted or Go Home

Michael Ramirez Cartoon

What I don’t want to see in the new Congress: Partisan Mudfights.

As fun as it may be to just all Terminator on the Obama administration with investigations all that does is sink to the Democrats level of partisanship, aka investigate Bush for everything and anything no matter how outlandish or insane not caring about anything other than “Gotcha!” politics.

We don’t need that now. We need Leadership. Not a Partisan driven Gotcha.

When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. (1 Corinthians 13:11)

Spending. Congress has, by constitutional right, the power of the purse strings. The new Congress must use this power to slash spending to the pre-meltdown, pre-stimulus levels of 2007. Federal spending today is over 25% of GDP — nearly a quarter above its historic average. The Democrat-led 111th Congress added $3.2 trillion to the national debt, the most in history.

With an estimated $10 trillion in debt expected over the next decade from current programs, and a wave of spending coming to take care of the tidal wave of baby boomers who’ll be retiring at the rate of 10,000 a day the next couple of decades, government better stop spending now — or go bankrupt.

Period. End of Story!

Within 5 years, just 5 years, the INTEREST on the National Credit Card will be more than we spend on the Military, it will be so massive that it will be the single largest expenditure we have as a nation.

That is unsustainable. It must stop. Period!

Today the top-earning 5% of taxpayers — having incomes over $159,619 (well below “the Rich” of 250,000 )— earn 35% of the nation’s income, but pay 60% of individual income taxes. This is unfair and inefficient, with estimates of as much as a $150 billion reduction in GDP each year.

“The Rich” the liberals are so obsessed with pay nearly 1/2 of all taxes but have the highest taxes. And you want to screw them even more and expect to them to love you and kiss you and roll over and play dead marxist??

I don’t think so. Grow up!

Life isn’t fair.

And the debt wracked by the government and the people is real and only the government and the people can stop it.

Now!

ObamaCare. Because you don’t have the Senate and the President you won’t be able to repeal it. You must slow it down though and get rid of some of the most onerous things if you can.

Personally I think the liberals will fight to your death for this Golden Goose Egg of Socialism.

They don’t care that it actually hurts people. They just don’t care.

So we have to cut spending.

Real Cuts.

Painful Cuts.

Not just politically correct show-off cuts that don’t mean anything in the long run.

We’re talking Entitlements. The lightning rod of politics.

Prepare to be electrocuted or go home.

The Republican House and the 47 GOP senators should nonetheless reintroduce the topic into the debate, even pass a bill in the House. They should also promote market improvements of Medicare. The public needs to understand why this is necessary — and why the Democrats’ inevitable resistance puts our nation at risk.

The GOP must be careful, though, of accepting a “bipartisan compromise” that perpetuates the worst features of the current system. With a $107 trillion deficit expected over the long term, the two entitlement programs must be overhauled. There’s no choice.

It’s the 20,000 lib Gorrila on steroids that is guarded by an Imperial Starfleet of Unions, Democrats and the Not-In-My-Backpocket Scare tactics that must be taken down or else it’s over, it’s all over.

Too bad if you don’t like it. Too bad if you don’t want to.

The truth is the truth, deal with it. You don’t have to like it, you’d don’t have to approve.

It’s very bad medicine that you have to swallow or else.

No option.

Except complete and utter failure of everything.

No pressure.

Congress needs to refocus the Fed on what it does best: keep inflation under control and help oversee the commercial banks. Most important, any reforms must keep the central bank’s political independence — which studies show is what makes a central bank most effective.

Pumping money we don’t have into a broken economy is not making it better.

Keynesian Economics DOES NOT WORK! Period. End of story.

Sorry, Liberals, Life just isn’t fair and it never will be. Get over it!

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. One of the great disgraces of the 111th Congress was the passage of a financial overhaul bill that left the two main causes of our financial meltdown untouched. At one point, Fannie and Freddie controlled half the $13 trillion U.S. mortgage market.

For years, Congress and presidents alike have used the two to subsidize cheap home loans to undeserving borrowers to garner votes and boost the U.S. homeownership rate. The two have already cost U.S. taxpayers $135 billion, but may end up costing as much as $700 billion, estimates show. Republicans can rectify this by holding new hearings, then privatizing them or shutting them down.

Fannie & Freddie must die so that we may live. Period.

TSA reform. The Transportation Security Agency is out of control. As agents make X-rated X-rays of passengers and grope their private parts, screeners continue to let guns, knives, explosives and bomb parts sift through the security line.

Meanwhile, Israel’s El Al, considered the world’s most secure airline, has a different strategy. Wisely disregarding political correctness, it uses ethnic profiling and asks passengers inconvenient questions. How about changing strategy here and considering the Israeli model? Our lawmakers need to have the courage to take the lead on making our skies safer and air travel less stressful.

Yes, folks, RACIAL PROFILING!

You can’t fight a war, any war, politically correct. Sorry Liberals.

Net neutrality. The Federal Communications Commission, saying it wants to establish a free and open Internet, has voted to impose regulations on the Web. But far from freeing the Web and making it more wide open, net neutrality rules give Washington the power to determine how Internet service providers handle the traffic that flows over their infrastructure.

The Liberals need to have government run everything in your life from birth to death (and beyond with the Death Taxes) has got to be stopped.

And something that is nearly extinct in this culture as a whole must come back:

Personal Responsibility!

When you screw up it’s YOUR FAULT and YOUR CONSEQUENCES and you have to live with the CONSEQUENCES of YOUR OWN ACTIONS!

It is not anyone or any group’s fault.

It’s not the “rich”, “white people”, “Christians”, your neighbor, that drink you had, chocolate,McDonalds, et al.

It’s your own damn fault and BUCK UP and take it like an ADULT.

It’s time to put away childish things!

When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. (1 Corinthians 13:11)

Put down the lawsuit ACLU and Liberals stop whining about your secular need to drive religion out of life as a whole (unless it’s Islam which is politically correct).

There is wisdom here. Learn from it. Regardless of the source.

STOP BEING A CHILD and GROW UP!

Time to take your medicine!

The drunken hangover is over, it’s now the morning after and this hangover is killer.

DEAL WITH IT. MAN UP!

Immigration. With 20 million illegal immigrants, Congress must work to ensure that immigration is about rule of law, not ethnic grievance politics. Full funding for the border fence is a must to ensure that U.S. agents, not Mexican cartels, control the border. Congress must end the current White House policy of cherry-picking criminal cases, but ignoring others.

Also, legal immigration to the U.S. must be made speedier and less costly. Legal immigrants wait in long lines and pay an average $6,000 to enter legally. One idea: an express lane for those with education and training who can fit into our economy right away.

SECURE THE BORDER. Then we’ll talk. The End.

Janet the Incompetano is not capable of this. She is too politically correct to even deal with it. Always has been.

When she was Governor of Arizona she constantly stalled efforts saying it was a “federal problem” and then when she became the Fed, she is the problem.

She needs to be replaced or have a brain transplant because she too incompetent to stay.

Since that is unlikely, it falls to the Congress to brave the slings and arrows of the Hispanic Caucus, The Liberal Media and “racism” and do what is right and secure the border for real.

Regulations. They must be reformed and not used as the Socialist Weapon of Choice since they haven’t got the legislative power now.

According to the Small Business Administration, red tape costs the economy $1.75 trillion each year — more than the GDP of Canada and equal to all corporate profits. It also adds up to $15,000 per household.

And with the 2nd highest Corporate Tax in the world, and the economic turmoil CREATED by liberals we aren’t attractive to even businesses in THIS country let alone another.

This has to stop.

The Liberals need to grow up.

That’s nearly nearly impossible, so we have to go around them and prove it can work.

The time For Childishness and liberal dreams of social and economic “equality” for all are over.

Period.

Federal regulations go on for 70,000 pages. Under Obama, regulatory bureaucrats are drawing more power. The EPA, FCC and FDA, to name just a few, are issuing sweeping new rules for us to live under. Enough.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

The drug binges have to stop now or the patient dies.

Period.

No option.

No Choice.

Just do it!

OR ELSE!

Period.

No one should care if you don’t like it. It’s the cold hard reality.

DEAL WITH IT.

 

It’s all Chicken Crap!

Speaker-Designate John Boehner yesterday when the Liberal Democrats pulled a petullant and childish partisan political stunt had it right.

“I’m trying to catch my breath so I don’t refer to this maneuver going on today as chicken crap, all right?” Boehner told reporters in the Capitol Thursday. “But this is nonsense. All right? The election was one month ago. We’re 23 months from the next election, and the political games have already started, trying to set up the next election. We had an honest conversation at the White House about the challenges that we face to get out of here and to take care of what the American people expect of us. And they roll this vote out today; it really is just what you think I was going to say anyway.”

Just days after a “White House Summit” on the Bush Era Tax issue (They are not “Cuts” because if they are not renewed your taxes go UP, if they are renewed NOTHING HAPPENS to your taxes. They DON”T GO DOWN. They are not “cuts!”) Nancy Pelosi personally orchestrates a F*CK YOU maneuver very reminiscent of what happened right after the Health Care Summit where the Democrats said that was fun, now we are going to do what we want, because we want, and F*ck you!
So in show of total hyper-partisanship and a pie in the face to their own President the petulant little children in the House passed in a warp speed maneuver that would make the Picard Maneuver look like a turtle on Valium as they thumbed their collective noses at everyone and passed their “middle class tax cut” regardless.
The fact that it’s not a “cut” is perfectly ignored by Liberals in Congress and Liberals in the media.
But the petulant children did it anyways. You can almost see Pelosi just sticking her tongue and waggling her fingers at everyone.
So they passed what they want. No negotiation. No Compromise. No amendments. No discussion.
Just rammed it through and f*ck you!
Gotta preserve that core addiction that Liberals have for Class Warfare.
And, it would definitely be a great boon to job seekers everywhere if there potential bosses taxes were raised right now. That will surely make everything much better!
And you know they are cutting 2012 campaign commercials right now, “Republicans voted to not to cut taxes on the middle class”, “Republicans wanted to give tax cuts to the rich!”
The same old mantra.
And if you think Democrats are intellectually capable of understanding how childish this all was…Think again.
We Dare you to vote against a “Middle Class Tax Cut”. Go ahead we double dog Dare you! We Triple dog dare you!
We have lots of friends in the liberal media who’ll bash you for the next 2 years 24/7  if you do!!
Intellectual maturity this isn’t.
It was a political stunt, by people who lost an election big because that’s all they have done for the last 2 years is one cramdown stunt after another.
Learn anything after the election, of course not.
They are far, far too narcissistic and ideologically hell bent for that.
They know it’s Dead on Arrival in the Senate, but they don’t care. It’s all show. It’s all just a game.
A petulant child’s game.
We the People deserve better.
