The Emperor’s Speech

Tonight’ is Obama’s State of The Empire..Union…Speech.

Political Cartoons by Glenn McCoy

He will tout how good things are going and how much better they could be if everyone just did everything he wanted and just shut the hell up and let him do whatever he wanted, when he wanted, and because he wanted to.

You know, where “bi-partisan” means BY-Partisan and he and the Democrats get everything they want, when they want it, because they want it . There’s no use complaining about it (you “obstructionist”) because we’re going to cram it down your throat no matter what eventually because, after all, we are just that much better and more powerful than you. And we will get what we want, when we want it, and because WE want it. Period.

After all, We are Homo Superior Liberalis and he’s just better than you in every way. And it can never ever be their fault, for anything. The Rich/Obstructionist/Tea Party/Right Wing/Koch Brothers are to blame for everything, didn’t you know that? 🙂

He’ll talk up his Class Warfare and how evil rich people are (Boo Hisssss). How the “little guy” that he’s been squashed for 5 years is being squashed by his political opponents and not him.

He far too superior to be at fault for anything.

How he’ll rule be Imperial Decree if the “obstructionists” (aka Republicans) won’t kow-tow to everything he wants because he wants it. And if he wants it it must be good, right?

So who gives a rats ass about that Constitution thing if the Emperor says it’s good.

After all, he is Homo Superior Liberalis, he’s just smarter than you. He’s a Constitutional Professor. He knows better than you what you need and no damn partisan hack is going to keep him from ramming it down your throat whether you like it or not!!

And besides, it is racist of you to not allow those 20 million illegal Democrats and Welfare/ObamaCare recipients to vote for his brood and the Once and Future Queen, Hillary The First.

But I do have one poser for the Emperor. I know it’s impertinent of me, a lowly blogger serf to ever even approach the level of greatness and magnificence that is our Emperor, Obama The First.

If high unemployment is a “stimulus” then is unemployment going down making the economy worse? 🙂

The fact that it’s going down because 5x as many people who got a job gave up looking and went on the government dole is irrelevant to the Gods of Washington.

But if it was a “stimulus” when it was high, with it going down, now what is it? Still a good thing?? A doublethink….and political duplicity….Thy name is Obama.

Should be a rousing speech that we’ve all heard before, several times over, tonight. And the Liberal Media will be drooling over it for months as they do their Lord’s work for him in educating the masses on how he’s most magnificent and most magnanimous to his subjects.

I think I’ll watch “Chopped” instead… 🙂

On the eve of President Obama’s State of the Union Address, a new poll from Washington Post-ABC News shows that fully 63 percent of Americans have either little to no confidence Obama will make the right decisions. The public is evenly split on whether Obama is honest and trustworthy, with 49 percent of Americans answering in the affirmative, and 48 percent answering negatively.

So the “Vote for Me, The other Guy’s an Asshole” crowd have got a lot of work ahead of them. But they have 24/7 Ministry of Truth Misinformation Networks so they just have to Lie repeatedly until people believe it.And those trained minions who already do, they just have to give them new ammo to shoot their mouths with.

Welcome to 2014. The Year Hell could come to Earth and lands right in Washington D.C.

A bare majority of Americans, 52 percent, feel Obama does not understand the problems of people like them – a shocking downward turn for Obama on an important likeability issue in which he dominated in 2012. A majority of Americans, 51 percent, also believe Obama is not a strong leader. His disapproval rating stands currently at 50 percent, with 41 percent disapproving strongly – only 23 percent support him strongly. 50 percent of Americans have an unfavorable impression of the president.(TR)

But yet they will vote for the Democrats anyhow (and it starts tonight), either because they are mindless zombies, or because they are manipulated by the media, or because the Republicans are too weak to have a spine.

Either way, I think I’ll watch “Chopped”…

What’s Important

Benghazi Update (remember that?): Before we confirm the president’s national security team, let’s get some answers to why no terrorists have been captured or killed after the consulate attack and why the administration doesn’t seem to care.

Last Tuesday, the Tunisian government released Ali Ani al-Harzi, a leading suspect in the attack who was taken into custody after fleeing Libya for Turkey and then sent to Tunisia. A Tunisian court said he was released for lack of evidence, but more likely he was released for no lack of pressure from Islamist groups in and outside Tunisia.

Harzi is free now to share a fruity drink with fellow suspect Ahmed Abu Khattala. According to the Oct. 19 New York Times, Khattala, an alleged ringleader of the Sept. 11 attack, was found at a crowded luxury hotel, sipping strawberry frappes on a patio and scoffing at the threats coming from the U.S. and Libyan governments.

Sad to say, this is the apparent extent of our knowledge of and investigation into just who is responsible for planning and executing the terrorist attack.

President Obama has vowed to bring the killers of Ambassador Stevens and the three other Americans to justice. Yet four months after the assault, little progress, if any, has been made, and the only one in jail is Mark Basseley Youssef, the man said to be behind the film “Innocence of Muslims,” originally blamed by the Obama administration for provoking the attack.

“Make no mistake,” President Obama told reporters the morning after the attack, “we will work with the Libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people.”

So far this has been just one of many empty and broken promises. As Benghazi fades away, no one has been brought to justice and no one may ever be. (IBD)

Just like Fast & Furious.
But boy are Obama & Co hot to take YOUR guns away from YOU because you are a violent psychopath!
Funny that.

“In what other ways might the mighty eagle emulate the tattered old lion? First comes reorientation, and the shrinking of the horizon. After empire, Britain turned inward: Between 1951 and 1997 the proportion of government expenditure on defense fell from 24 percent to seven, while the proportion on health and welfare rose from 22 percent to 53. And that’s before New Labour came along to widen the gap further.

“Those British numbers are a bald statement of reality: You can have Euro-sized entitlements or a global military, but not both. What’s easier to do if you’re a democratic government that’s made promises it can’t afford — cut back on nanny-state lollipops, or shrug off thankless military commitments for which the electorate has minimal appetite?” (Mark Steyn)

So you crush the Defense Department (which liberal loath with a psychotic passion) and nominate someone who will gladly wield a battle axe and not a scalpel when cut the Defense budget (“waste”).

Thus you have more money to hide, guess what?, OBAMACARE. That bloated mess that cost 3 times what it was supposed to and it hasn’t even kicked in 100% until next year.

Barack Obama prefers to say that it’s time for the United States to do some nation-building at home.

By that he means an authoritarian post-“empire” Empire for Liberal progressive socialism.

Isolation. Big Brother needs isolation. The Ministry of Truth needs control.

Either line will do, and, like Britain’s inverted budget priorities, both implicitly acknowledge that a military-industrial complex and a dependency-bureaucrat complex are incompatible. And that’s before you factor in Washington-size borrowing, under which, within this decade, the interest payments on the debt will be covering the entire cost of the Chinese military. America can fund the Pentagon or the People’s Liberation Army, but not both, not for long. Having gotten the citizenry to accept a supersized welfare bureaucracy, Obama reasonably enough figures he can just as easily get them used to a shrunken American presence in the wider world.

So the president is looking for his equivalent of Denis Healey, the Labour cabinet minister who in the 1968 defense review announced an all but total withdrawal of British forces from “east of Suez” — a phrase that in the imperial imagination is less geographic than psychological.

Kipling’s English Tommy on the road to Mandalay: “Ship me somewheres east of Suez  . . . ” And then a cheeseparing defense minister says: No, we won’t. Not now, not ever again. It’s over.

Who would you hire for the Pentagon’s east-of-Suez moment? According to the Washington Post, Obama picked Hagel to “bridge the partisan divide.” (Mark Steyn)

Add in “swift Boat” Kerry and a “Tax and Spend” Treasury Secretary and possible some more Liberal Progressive Justices to the Supreme Court and you have the makings of a great new state for America.

Add in all the “Dreamers”, the 12 Million new Democrat voters…

So in conclusion, we all know that the Modern Democrat is always looking out for “Bi-partisan” solutions and the right people for the right job to make America prosperous again.

So they can KILL THEM stone dead! 🙂

What’s Important is that the Liberals take over everything and everybody because they are so vastly superior to all forms of life and they are going to prove it be dominating all other life forms utterly and completely and you aren’t going to even miss your freedoms.

Turn up the heat on that frog in the warm water, it’s time to start boiling….

 

 

New York State of Mind

Political Cartoons by Eric Allie

New Food Police alert : Slurpies are Evil!

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is planning to ban the sale of large sugary drinks known to most Americans as big gulps and smaller drinks such as Snapples. Why the need for the ban? To save people from themselves combat obesity of course.

The proposed first-in-the-nation ban would impose a 16-ounce limit on the size of sweetened drinks sold at restaurants, movie theaters, sports venues and street carts. It would apply to bottled drinks as well as fountain sodas.

The ban, which could take effect as soon as March, wouldn’t apply to diet sodas, fruit juices, dairy-based drinks or alcoholic beverages.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Wednesday that he “thinks it’s what the public wants the mayor to do.”

Hmm….considering Diet soda has been shown to also cause people to gain weight and that fruit juice has just as much sugar as soda, this is clearly drink discrimination. But, there’s a loophole!

But there’s speculation that customers will just buy two 16-ounce bottles instead of one 20-ounce drink. (Townhall)

Maybe while getting a little weed and a little blow on the street you can get a black market 20 oz Mountain Dew!! 🙂

Flee THE  Tax Man

New York thinks of itself as the place to be, but its high taxes have made it a place to flee. Those who have escaped the Empire State tax man could fill a major city.

The state of New York, with about 19.5 million people, has no known plans to erect concrete barriers or barbed wire fences. But from 2000 to 2010 it suffered an exodus of some 3.4 million New Yorkers — nearly a million more people than in Germany’s post-war experience and more than that of any other state.

And the outflow hasn’t stopped. The income loss for the state is $45.6 billion, the Tax Foundation says.

Granted, it’s not just one-way traffic. New York has plenty of immigration from abroad; its more than 4 million foreign-born residents give it the second-biggest immigrant population in America.

So net outward migration is about 1.3 million.

Most New York refugees are in sunny, zero-income-tax Florida. The Sunshine State, along with its rays, offer big relief from New York’s state tax on income, which starts at almost 6.5% and reaches nearly 9% for the overly successful.

On top of that are high sales taxes that approach 9% in New York City, but 7% in some other areas.

Heritage Foundation analyst Nick Kasprak said taxes play a role in people’s decisions to relocate.

“You generally see people moving from higher-tax states to lower-tax states,” he said. “Certainly, taxes are one way that states compete with one another.”

Florida wins that competition with New York hands down. It has no income tax and no estate tax.

http://interactive.taxfoundation.org/migration/

New Yorkers who leave an estate of more than $1 million to their loved ones get hit with a state death tax reaching 16%, bringing billions into state coffers.

Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo admits that “working families can’t afford to pay the ever-increasing tax burden … and this state has no future if it is going to be the tax capital of the nation.”

But like a long line of New York politicians from both parties, what he dangles is relief from the state’s high property taxes, which are tied to state government spending mandates on localities — a longtime shell game showing no real signs of ending.

Cuomo’s predecessor, Eliot Spitzer (aka the Emperor’s Club escort agency’s Client No. 9), actually attained the governorship as a tax crusader of sorts, suing H&R Block for $250 million on fraud charges as state attorney general while simultaneously seeking the governor’s mansion.

But Spitzer didn’t, and Cuomo hasn’t, threatened New York’s status as “tax capital of the nation” with any substantive reform that changes the status quo.

Like those formerly enslaved behind the Iron Curtain, New Yorkers’ choice is a wrenching one: either escape by leaving home, or spend years waiting for a liberator to arrive.

The Real Star Wars

sith-lord-obama-64047_600

This is a tale of a young Senator who set out to change the world. To grab power. To reshape everything.

To fundamentally violate one of the truth of existence and to fight against it.

That truth, LIFE ISN’T FAIR.

I believe (to borrow another movie) it to be the Inception idea that started modern Liberalism.

If Life isn’t fair, then let’s make it equal. So that it is no more or less fair for anyone.

But that way leads to The Dark Side.

The Sith await you.

Think about it, you have a (in this case young) Senator who rises in a time of stress and War and Crisis. He promises hope & change. Though the hope and change he wants is to control everyone and everything. That way, Social Justice is “Fair”. And Life if “fair”.

In the time of crisis he is granted powers and takes steps no leader has ever dared take before. He takes over the Banks, insurance companies, the auto industry.

He consolidates more power to central authority that ever before. he is playing both sides against each other in the name of “fairness” to consolidate power. Because, after all, they only way life can be “fair” is if you control it from birth to death.

You have no freedom. But it’s Fair! 😦

“So this is how liberty dies… with thunderous applause”–Sen. Padme Amidala

But life is not fair.

And this frustrates him. He has such a grand vision. But he can’t get it done.

It’s not fair!

He’s so much smarter than everyone else. He’s so much better. More enlightened.

And all he wants is for everyone to be equal. Now that’s “fair”.

And before the November 2nd elections (9/10/10): “If it was just a referendum on whether we’ve made the kind of progress that we need to, then people around the country would say ‘We’re not there yet,'” Obama said.

“If the election is about the policies that are going to move us forward, versus the policies that will get us back into a mess, then I think Democrats will do very well.”

And on Nov 2, he and his minions were “shellacked”. But that didn’t stop them from have a very productive Lame Duck Session where they got 90% of what they wanted.

As a matter of fact, he’s now the “Comeback Kid”. The Emperor has New Clothes.

But still he fears that his life’s work will be undone, challenged or left unfulfilled. The dreams of 90 years of Progressive Liberalism rest upon his shoulders.

His vision.

So, like Palpatine, he will have to be craftier and take more control rather than letting his minions like Darth Vader do all the heavy lifting.

“Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.”— Master Yoda

And who hates more liberals.

Only Radical Muslims and terrorists.

Class Warfare. Hate the rich (but not the Liberal Rich like George Soros or even Obama who made $5 million dollars last year).

Race Warfare. Pitting blacks and Hispanics against Whites because Whites are “not fair” and oppressive.

Despite the fact that liberal policies hurt blacks and hispanics.

It keeps them down.

The promise of “fairness” and “Justice” keep them in line. Even though in the 50 years they haven’t even come close to either.

Religious Warfare. The more Progressive (aka radical) they are the seemingly more anti-religious they are- especially Christianity.

How is that different from the Sith wanting to wipe out the Jedi??

The Jedi are spiritual. The Force is spiritual.

They must be crushed.

The State is your only salvation.

The Government is your protector. Your savior.

Not yourself.

But if Obama is Senator Palpatine, cum Emperor-wanna be, who is Darth Vader. The angry, power mad servant of the Dark Side?

Nancy Pelosi, who else. 🙂  (Not Dick Cheney as the Liberals tried to use in 2005 after Bush beat Kerry for re-election)

But it does point to the fact that when Liberals object to the dirty tricks way things are being done “unfairly” that usually means they have already done them and you’re not allowed to do what they are doing because they are so vastly superior and more “fair” than you.

But Darth Vader never got demoted to a Minority Position. This should just strengthen her backbone and her insanity.

She will hate even more at being thwarted and simultaneous be proud of her many accomplishments over the last 2 years.

Obstructing the rebel scum will be new mission. They cannot be allowed to retake what she has taken.

After all, it is my own opinion that Nancy Pelosi thought she was the Empress for the last 2 years and that Barack was the upstart who was getting in HER way.

Then there’s The Conspirator, aka Harry Reid. He who works behind the scenes to make it work through any means necessary.

You have the faceless “enemy”- The Rich. The Corporations. The Separatists.

You have the faceless, uniform soldiers of the cause, The Unions and the Bureaucracy. A hegemony of purpose and the foot soldiers of the cause.

And then you ad in an Orwellian touch, The Ministry of Truth. The Liberally-biased media that is a champion of the Empire’s needs and wants and will spread it’s message and lies far and wide across the land. Willingly so. And they all proclaims to be “fair” and “objective”.

Those who disagree with this view are the evil ones who are not fair and not objective: FOX,the Internet-Like Drudge,Daily Caller etc, and Talk Radio.

Which is why they must be controlled. So you send out the faceless bureaucratic clone minions of the FCC, the FTC, the FDA to stop them.

The SEIU are the people’s clone army. Foot soldiers for the cause.

Then there are the Liberal lawyers and judges who stop the resistance by ruling from ideology under the cover of law. To control the people ever further.

Then comes the Resistance, The Rebel Alliance.

A loose band of like-minded independent people who just want their freedoms back. To restore democracy and give all people a chance.

Meet THE TEA PARTY.

Hated, denigrated, and reviled by the Imperials.

But their allies in the Government haven’t proven they can be trusted yet. Not after the Lame Duck give aways they allowed.

So this chapter in the saga has yet to be written and it falls to all of us in the movement to keep the pressure on.

To quote yet another movie, “Never Give up! Never Surrender!”

Or as Master Yoda might say, ““Do or do not… there is no try.”

The Saga Continues.

Queen Pelosi and Her Empire Strikes Back

Political Cartoon by Gary Varvel

Queen of Her own Empire, Nancy Pelosi (does she realize she was repudiated on Nov 2?- in short, NO!): “We will continue discussions with the President and our Democratic and Republican colleagues in the days ahead to improve the proposal before it comes to the House floor for a vote,” Pelosi said.

“Democratic priorities remain clear: to provide a tax cut for working families, to create jobs and economic growth, to assist millions of our fellow Americans who have lost their jobs through no fault of their own, and to do this in a fiscally sound way.”

Aka, Class Warfare or Die! Victory or Death! Victory or Your Death!

Screw you!

One unidentified lawmaker went so far as to mutter “f— the president” in a Democratic Caucus meeting. The anger aimed at the bill was widespread. As Democrats moved to block the bill from coming up on the floor, chants of “Just say no!” could be heard by reporters outside the room. (The Hill)

Class Warfare or Die! Victory or Death!

Class Warfare or Die! Victory or Death!

Class Warfare or Die! Victory or Death!

The Democrats are so delusional they don’t even understand that they lost the last election. BIG. 63 seats in the House lost, the biggest Republican victory in nearly 90 years!

Forty-seven percent (47%) of those in President Obama’s party say the country is on the wrong track.  Eighty-eight percent (88%) of Republicans and 75% of voters not affiliated with either political party agree. (Rasmussen)

And, frankly, THEY DON’T CARE!

And you can bet Minority Leader Pelosi will not change in January.

“If everybody took out what they didn’t like, we would have nothing,” Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said. “And we know the consequences of doing nothing.”

The Democrats don’t care!

Simple as that.

They don’t give a crap on a stick if your taxes go up Jan 1, 2011. If they can’t have their Class Warfare then they’ll take their marbles and go home!

F*uck you!

“We have given our leadership license to force the Senate and the White House back to the table to get a better deal for the American people,” Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.)said.

Asked if leadership had agreed to do that, DeFazio replied, “Well, they’re not going to get a bill if they don’t.”

Louisiana Kickback recipient Sen, Mary Landreiu had the gal to call the deal “moral recklessness”. This would be funny from the lady who got a $300 million dollar bribe to vote for ObamaCare, if it wasn’t so incredible in it’s arrogance.

Class Warfare or Die! Victory or Death!

Class Warfare or Die! Victory or Death!

Class Warfare or Die! Victory or Death!

The President for his part did lovingly call the Republicans, “Hostage Takers”.

So Tax Increases (because they aren’t “cuts”) are being held hostage by Class Warriors and the ones who aren’t fighting a class war are the terrorists!

Now, that’s politics 2010.

“A clear majority of the U.S. House of Representatives supports this plan,” Rep. Dan Boren (D-Okla.) said in a statement. “We are allowing the liberal wing of the Democratic Caucus to hold these critically needed tax cuts hostage.”

But the ultimate power in this situation is Queen of Her Own Universe, the still Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi.

If she wants to be a one liberal roadblock to your taxes going up, damn she’s going to squat in the middle of the road, hold her breath until you turn blue to save her Class Warfare!

The question is will they blink after all this bluster and cry-baby tactics?

Personally, I’m too much of cynic to think so. Ultimately, I have no faith.

Liberals don’t compromise, they dictate.

They want YOU to compromise with them. There is no quid pro quo.

They are spoiled bratty little children who will cry and whine and throw a tantrum if you don’t do exactly as they want. They want what they want, when they want it. Nothing less.

They have got the maturity to deal with reality. So they don’t.

And at the top of this heap of crap is the Queen Dung Beetle, Nancy Pelosi, the Queen of all she surveys.
