The Pettiness of Command

Some examples.

Mount Vernon is the former plantation of George Washington and is owned by the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association, which doesn’t receive any government funding.
But the National Park Service “made a mistake” when they closed off the parking lot to the monument because of a “misunderstanding”. (they got caught trying to cause trouble just to score political points).
Nevertheless, the NPS erected barricades in front of parking lots at the estate Tuesday. According to Stephen Gutowski, who documented the attempted closure, Mt. Vernon spokeswoman Melissa Wood told him that “the Park Service was confused about the ownership of those parking lots.” Most of the barricades were removed after several hours. However, Gutowski noted in an update to his post that barricades were still blocking a portion of one parking lot as of Friday morning. Wood told Gutowski that the barricaded section was “most likely owned by the Park Service” but did not elaborate.
But they aren’t being petty and vindictive…

#2: Near MOUNT PISGAH, N.C. — At a spot 5,000 feet above sea level and 20 miles from the nearest town, an innkeeper decided Friday to defy the federal government and reopen his lodge.

That stand lasted about two hours as National Park Service rangers blocked the entrances to the privately run Pisgah Inn on the Blue Ridge Parkway after owner Bruce O’Connell decided to reopen his dining room, gift shop and country store at noon Friday for lunch. The federal government had forced the inn, in a leased building on federal land, to shut down at 6 p.m. ET Thursday at the height of fall foliage — and tourism — season.

His family has operated the inn on the parkway about 25 miles from Asheville, N.C., for 35 years. It the only spot for many miles along the 469.1-mile mountain route to sleep or grab a meal and go to the bathroom.

A handful of guests had lunch before Park Service patrol cars blocked the driveways, turning on their orange flashing lights. Rangers turned customers away, saying the government was closed.

Because both the Pisgah Inn and Peaks of Otter Lodge are private, any proposal to pay federal workers for time off during the shutdown wouldn’t apply to employees there.

I’m guessing, if the Inn goes under it will be the Republican’s Fault! 🙂

Man they can guard an Inn in North Carolina more vigilantly than the US Border!! 🙂

#3: American tourists visiting a D-Day cemetery in Normandy, northern France, expressed anger upon discovering that the white-cross memorial they had travelled thousands of miles to see was closed due to a U.S. government shutdown.

#4: AP- Arizona’s Republican leaders, known for picking fights with the federal government, are seething again now that the Grand Canyon is closed because of the budget crisis in Washington.

Ooh, there, “seething” for a fight with Obama!!! n (gee, no media bias here!) 🙂

The ones Trying to open the park are the “seething” nasty fight pickers….

Gov. Jan Brewer wants the state’s signature national park reopened and has offered to pay for it with state money, but her proposal was rejected Thursday by a park official who said that as long as the federal government remains shut down, such a plan isn’t an option.

“I appreciate the support and I thanked them for the offer, but it’s not an offer we can accept,” said park superintendent Dave Uberuaga.

The shutdown that began Tuesday has led to furloughs for about 2,200 people who work at the Grand Canyon National Park and its hotels. “And that’s not counting the economic impact in the gateway communities, all of the related businesses, the bus tours, hiking companies, the jeep tours, all of those associated functions are suffering economically as well,” Uberuaga said.

Many of those businesses also have offered to chip in to pay to reopen the park.

So the “good guys” are the ones who capriciously closed it and refuse to let anyone open it until they’ve caused enough pain to make you scream.
Now that’s “unity” and “compassion”….

CAUSE AS MUCH PAIN, INCONVENIENCE, HASSLE AND STRESS AS POSSIBLE.

Because we all know, it’s the Republican’s Fault!  And only they are to blame!! 🙂

#5: Wesley Pruden of The Washington Times reported:

The Park Service appears to be closing streets on mere whim and caprice. The rangers even closed the parking lot at Mount Vernon, where the plantation home of George Washington is a favorite tourist destination. That was after they barred the new World War II Memorial on the Mall to veterans of World War II. But the government does not own Mount Vernon; it is privately owned by the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association. The ladies bought it years ago to preserve it as a national memorial. The feds closed access to the parking lots this week, even though the lots are jointly owned with the Mount Vernon ladies. The rangers are from the government, and they’re only here to help.

“It’s a cheap way to deal with the situation,” an angry Park Service ranger in Washington says of the harassment. “We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting.”

A couple hours later, when an Honor Flight of World War II veterans arrived, accompanied by Democratic and Republican members of Congress, the fences blocking the memorial were easily moved away, allowing the veterans to enter.

But the barriers are still at the memorial, and they’ve been reinforced.

#6: Camp David in central Maryland is being kept open during the government shutdown for his entertainment and security at the same time the Pentagon is cutting sports coverage to hundreds of thousands of troops around the world.

Camp David is where past presidents, who took leadership seriously, have assembled feuding parties from abroad to hammer out their differences in historic peace accords.

But, like we said, Obama has vowed not to negotiate with Americans there or anywhere. So, any budget or debt limit talks there are out of the question.

Maybe he”l just go skeet shooting or golfing until the Republican capitulate 100% to everything he wants. Until then…

CAUSE YOUR ENEMY AS MUCH PAIN, INCONVENIENCE, HASSLE AND STRESS AS POSSIBLE.

Now for the Charlie Sheen Moment: Said a senior administration official: “We are winning…It doesn’t really matter to us” how long the shutdown lasts “because what matters is the end result.”

Mr. President,

We thought you were different, but you turned out to be like all the others. You promised hope and change, but we trust government even less than before. You offered a new brand of post-partisan governing, but the red states and blue states are farther apart than ever. Washington was a mess when you arrived in January of 2009, but by breaking your promises and, frankly, our hearts, you made it worse. You vowed to ban lobbyists from the White House only to sneak them in through loopholes. You barred corporate donations to the first inauguration but let the special interest money rain down the second time around. You even learned to love super PACs. How could you?

Signed,Hopeless and Changed (for the worse)  (National Journal)

Oct 27,2008: “In one week, you can put an end to the politics that would divide a nation just to win an election, that tries to pit region against region, city against town, Republican against Democrat, that asks us to fear at a time when we need hope. In one week, at this defining moment in history, you can give this country the change we need.”— Candidate Obama
Well, it’s changed alright.
And we are all more United than ever!

And it’s all THEIR fault! 🙂

The Complete Lie

Remember when electing the First Black president was going to unify us all and save the universe…

Barack Obama 2008: Obama then offered his most strongly worded condemnation of Wright’s comments. “The remarks that have caused this recent firestorm weren’t simply controversial. They weren’t simply a religious leader’s efforts to speak out against perceived injustice. Instead, they expressed a profoundly distorted view of this country — a view that sees white racism as endemic, and that elevates what is wrong with America above all that we know is right with America…As such, Reverend Wright’s comments were not only wrong but divisive, divisive at a time when we need unity; racially charged at a time when we need to come together to solve a set of monumental problems — two wars, a terrorist threat, a falling economy, a chronic health care crisis and potentially devastating climate change; problems that are neither black or white or Latino or Asian, but rather problems that confront us all.”

He’s lying through his teeth and he knows it.

“This is where we are right now,” he said. “It’s a racial stalemate we’ve been stuck in for years. Contrary to the claims of some of my critics, black and white, I have never been so naïve as to believe that we can get beyond our racial divisions in a single election cycle, or with a single candidate — particularly a candidacy as imperfect as my own. But I have asserted a firm conviction — a conviction rooted in my faith in God and my faith in the American people — that working together we can move beyond some of our old racial wounds, and that in fact we have no choice — we have no choice — if we are to continue on the path of a more perfect union.”

Soaring Rhetoric, but a complete lie.

2013: President Obama called on the nation to honor Trayvon Martin a day after George Zimmerman was acquitted of his murder by asking “ourselves if we’re doing all we can to stem the tide of gun violence.” (NBC)

THE AGENDA IS THE AGENDA

“It’s time to question laws that senselessly expand the concept of self-defense and sow dangerous conflict in our neighborhoods,” Mr. Holder said, winning repeated applause from the NAACP delegates. “These laws try to fix something that was never broken.” (WT)

NEVER LET A CRISIS GO TO WASTE!

Obama: “We should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to stem the tide of gun violence that claims too many lives across this country on a daily basis. We should ask ourselves, as individuals and as a society, how we can prevent future tragedies like this. As citizens, that’s a job for all of us. That’s the way to honor Trayvon Martin.”

Fuck the “white” Hispanic!!

radio host Tom Joyner 2011:Let’s not even deal with the facts right now. Let’s deal with just our blackness and pride — and loyalty. We have the chance to re-elect the first African-American president, and that’s what we ought to be doing. And I’m not afraid or ashamed to say that as black people, we should do it because he’s a black man.”

Rev Al Sharpton 2011: The Rev. Al Sharpton, an ally of President Obama who has a daily radio show and hosts a nightly cable television program, recently told the president’s black critics, “I’m not telling you to shut up. I’m telling you: Don’t make some of us have to speak up.”

Kychelle Green, 18, (2011) a nursing student at Norfolk State University, agreed. “You know it’s not really his fault that things aren’t changing,” she said. “He’s really trying but he can’t change every rule on his own. Now people are trying to criticize him because he is African American.”  (WP)

Birmingham, Alabama

Dennis Prager: The greatest hope most Americans — including Republicans — had when Barack Obama was elected president was that the election of a black person as the country’s president would reduce, if not come close to eliminating, the racial tensions that have plagued America for generations.

This has not happened. The election, and even the re-election, of a black man as president, in a country that is 87% nonblack — a first in human history — has had no impact on what are called “racial tensions.”

In case there was any doubt about this, the reactions to the George Zimmerman trial have made it clear.

The talk about “open season” on blacks, about blacks like Trayvon Martin being victims of nothing more than racial profiling and about a racist criminal justice system, has permeated black life and the left-wing mainstream media.

I put quotation marks around the term “racial tensions” because the term is a falsehood.

This term is stated as if whites and blacks are equally responsible for these tensions, as if the mistrust is morally and factually equivalent. But this is not at all the case.

“Racial tensions” is a lie perpetrated by the left. A superb example is when the New York Times described the 1991 black anti-Semitic riots in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, as “racial tensions.”

For those who do not recall, or who only read, viewed or listened to mainstream media reports, what happened was that mobs of blacks attacked Jews for three days after a black boy was accidentally hit and killed by a car driven by a Chasidic Jew.

A Brandeis University historian, Edward S. Shapiro, who wrote a book on the events, described those black attacks on innocent Jews as “the most serious anti-Semitic incident in American history.”

Blacks stabbed a Jewish student to death, injured other Jews, and screamed, “Heil Hitler!” and “Death to the Jews!” while carrying signs with messages such as “Hitler didn’t finish the job.”

And how did the New York Times report the most serious anti-Semitic incident in American history?

As racial tensions.

One of the Times reporters who covered those riots was Ari Goldman, now a professor of journalism at Columbia University.

Last year, 11 years after the riots, this is how Goldman described his former newspaper’s reporting of the events:

“In all my reporting during the riots, I never saw — or heard of — any violence by Jews against blacks. But the Times was dedicated to this version of events: Blacks and Jews clashing amid racial tensions.”

As a New York Times editorial described the black attacks: “The violence following an auto accident in Crown Heights reminds all New Yorkers that the city’s race relations remain dangerously strained.”

That was the entire left’s take: “strained relations” between blacks and Jews. “Racial tensions.” Both sides equally at fault.

Once one understands that “racial tensions” is a euphemism for a black animosity toward whites and a left-wing construct, one begins to understand why the election of a black president has had no impact on most blacks or on the left.

Since neither black animosity nor the left’s falsehood of “racial tensions” is based on the actual behavior of the vast majority of white Americans, nothing white America could do will affect either many blacks’ perceptions or the leftist libel.

That is why hopes that the election of a black president would reduce “racial tensions” were naive. Though a white person is far more likely to be murdered by a black person than vice versa, all it took was one tragic death of a black kid to reignite the hatred that many blacks and virtually all black leaders have toward white America.

Let’s put this in perspective. Ben Jealous of the NAACP, Al Sharpton of MSNBC, Jesse Jackson, and the left-wing media compete to incite hatred of America generally and white America specifically. Over what? A tragic incident in which a Hispanic man (regularly labeled “white”) said, with all physical evidence to support him, that fearing for his life, he killed a black 17-year-old (regularly labeled “a child”).

The very fact that George Zimmerman — who is as white as Barack Obama — is labeled “white” bears testimony to the left-wing agenda of blaming white America and to the desire of many blacks to vent anger at whites.

And that is why the election of a black president has meant nothing.

Indeed, to those whose lives and/or ideologies are predicated on labeling America and its white population as racist, it wouldn’t matter if half the Senate, half the House and half the governors were black.

IBD: What’s more, charging Zimmerman under federal hate-crimes law would defy the findings of the FBI’s own investigation conducted last year. All told, agents interviewed no fewer than 45 Zimmerman co-workers, neighbors and other acquaintances — including even his ex-fiance — and found no evidence of racial bias.None said Zimmerman, a neighborhood crime watch captain, had expressed racial animus at any time prior to the Feb. 26, 2012, self-defense shooting of Martin, who while under the influence of illegal drugs had jumped Zimmerman, breaking his nose and bashing his head repeatedly on the pavement. The 17-year-old Martin was visiting Zimmerman’s gated community in Sanford, Fla., while on school suspension for alleged burglary.

Lead Sanford Police Detective Chris Serino told the FBI that race wasn’t behind the shooting.

“Serino believed that Zimmerman’s actions were not based on Martin’s skin color (but) rather on his attire, the total circumstances of the encounter and the previous burglary suspects in the community,” the FBI wrote in its report. “Serino described Zimmerman as overzealous and as having a ‘little hero complex,’ but not as a racist.”

Even an African-American officer — Sanford Police Sgt. Arthur Barns — denied Zimmerman targeted Martin because he was black. He “felt the shooting was not racially motivated,” the FBI report stated.

The Past, Present, and Future Smear King

Michael Ramirez Cartoon

Recall the insane levels that Liberals and the Ministry of Truth Media went to over George W. Bush Drinking and alleged drug use. (The Liberal media won’t).

The smear was in full tilt.

Huffington Post 1/4/2007: Fox News Reporter Kirian Chetry blurted out what she assumed was common knowledge among the media cognoscenti: that George W. Bush had used cocaine in his past and yet had politically survived the exposure of that (criminal) indiscretion. Her on-air colleagues scrambled to “correct” the record: no, no, no, the cocaine accusations against Bush have never been proven beyond a doubt–so let’s quickly shift the conversation away from Bush’s drug past and instead bring up, for one more go around, Bill Clinton’s admitted marijuana use alongside the recent revelation about Barack Obama’s possible cocaine use. Let’s blow some smoke in Bill’s direction, he never inhaled, ha, ha, ha.

Whew, that was a close one! Fox News surely didn’t want to open that door into Bush’s creepy closet, and they tried to slam it shut.

Then there’s: Here’s the passage from his (Obama’s) book, Dreams from My Father, where he discusses his drug use:
“I had learned not to care. I blew a few smoke rings, remembering those years. Pot had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow when you could afford it. Not smack, though—Mickey, my potentional intiator had been just a little too eager for me to go through with that. Said he could do it blindfolded, but he was shaking like a faulty engine when he said it. Maybe he was just cold; we were standing in a meat freezer in the back of the deli where he worked, and it couldn’t have been more than twenty degrees in there. But he didn’t look like he was sweating, his face shiny and tight. He had pulled out the needle and the tubing, and I’d looked at him standing there, surrounded by big slabs of salami and roast beef, and right then an image popped into my head of an air bubble, shiny and round like a pearl, rolling quietly through a vein and stopping my heart… Junkie. Pothead. That’s where I’d be headed: the final, fatal role of the young would-be black man. Except the highs hadn’t been about that, me trying to prove what a down brother I was. Not by then anyway. I got just the opposite effect, something that could push questions of who I was out of my mind, something that could flatten out the landscape of my heart, blur the edges of my memory. I had discovered that it didn’t make any difference whether you smoked reefer in the white classmmate’s sparkling new van, or in the dorm room of some brother you’d met at the gym, or on the beach with a couple of Hawaiian kids who had dropped out of school and now spent most of their time looking for an excuse to brawl.

Nobody asked you whether your father was a fat-cat executive who cheated on his wife or some laid-off joe who slapped you around whenever he bothered to come home. You might just be bored, or alone. Everybody was welcome into the club of dissaffection. And if the high didn’t solve whatever it was that was getting you down, it could at least help you laugh at the world’s ongoing folly and see through all the hypocrisy and bullshit and cheap moralism.–Barack Obama Dreams of My Father.

Liberal Response: Crickets. They never even bothered. And besides if you brought it up, you were just a racist and wanted to keep this black man down and now it’s just silly, it doesn’t matter.

More Huffington Post 2007: What amazes me is that here we are, six years into Bush’s presidency, and the press still refuses to treat the longstanding stories about Bush’s cocaine use with the severity and scrutiny that such charges surely deserve, given the high level stakes involved. The issue is no longer simply how and why Bush has successfully dodged the topic for his entire political career. The story now should be why the press has treated him with kid gloves for so long.

But yet, Dreams of my Father was first published in July 1995 by Community Organizer Barack Obama.

Obama 1995: “In America,” Obama says, “we have this strong bias toward individual action. You know, we idolize the John Wayne hero who comes in to correct things with both guns blazing. But individual actions, individual dreams, are not sufficient. We must unite in collective action, build collective institutions and organizations.”

<<Crickets>>

Liberals won’t tell you things they don’t want you to know. Especially, if it’s a divide and conquer lie, half-truth, lie of omission or just plain old bullsh*t!

Then: These are mean, cruel times, exemplified by a ‘lock ‘em up, take no prisoners’ mentality that dominates the Republican-led Congress. Historically, African-Americans have turned inward and towards black nationalism whenever they have a sense, as we do now, that the mainstream has rebuffed us, and that white Americans couldn’t care less about the profound problems African-Americans are facing.”

2011: “And so tonight, it is my fervent hope that we can harness some of that unity and some of that pride to confront the many challenges that we still face.”–Obama the Day after Bin Laden was killed and a year before he “spiked” the football and took all the credit.

Then: “So, if somebody wants to build a coal plant, they can — it’s just that it will bankrupt them, because they are going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.”- Obama 2008

Now: The Obama campaign added a section on “clean coal” to its website this week after House Republicans alleged that the president’s “all-of-the-above” energy plan neglected the fossil fuel.

“President Obama has set a 10-year goal to develop and deploy cost-effective clean coal technology,” the website now says.“The Recovery Act invested substantially in carbon capture and sequestration research, including 22 projects across four different areas of carbon capture-and-storage research and development.”  (The Hill)

Say Anything to get Re-elected. It’s not like the Liberal Media will care and no one in the Liberal Media will take you seriously if you do. They will likely HELP you do it.
They are not  going to asks questions that violate the Party Meme.

There were uproars about Sarah Palin on Magazine covers. Now we have an effectively nude woman on Time Magazine.

The Response From the Liberal Media: YAWN!

I ‘m still waiting for the “War on Women” response that because this cover is offensive it must be because of misogynistic rich white male Republicans. 🙂

Then there’s the smear of Romney as a bully 50 years ago in High School.

The family of the “victim” (who by the way is dead!) calls the whole thing appalling and the Liberal media yawns again.

Facts don’t matter. And so what if the “victim” is dead. Who cares. It’s all about perception, not reality.

They put it out so that they could get that tabloid-y reaction.

It’s like the kid that acts out in class for the negative reinforcement.

Vote for Me! I’m not a racist, misogynist rich white privileged kid bully.

Are you?

Al Sharpton: “It’s war on black people, it’s war on women, it’s war on immigrants… We have got to turn this around and start targeting in Missouri those legislators that want to roll back our right to vote!”

Don’t vote for Republicans- They are Mean, racist, misogynists who hate women, poor people,grandma,blacks,and hispanics. Want dirty air, dirty water and for you to “just die!” (to quote former Rep. Grayson).

Damn! They hate everyone except “intolerant” right wing religious whackos and “rich” white people.

And the Ministry of Truth will beat the drum 24/7. They’ll lead the parade.

But don’t you dare rise up against them or question their journalistic integrity. Oh, now your just being “divisive” and “partisan”. 🙂

“At a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized, at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who think differently than we do,” he said, “it’s important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds.” -President Obama in Tucson January 2011.

That is until I’m running for re-election and all bets are off.

The Ministry of Truth is involved with news media, entertainment, the fine arts and educational books. Its purpose is to rewrite history and change the facts to fit Party doctrine for propaganda effect. For example, if Big Brother makes a prediction that turns out to be wrong, the employees of the Ministry of Truth go back and rewrite the prediction so that any prediction Big Brother previously made is accurate. This is the “how” of the Ministry of Truth’s existence. Within the novel Orwell elaborates that the deeper reason for its existence is to maintain the illusion that the Party is absolute. It cannot ever seem to change its mind (if, for instance, they perform one of their constant changes regarding enemies during war) or make a mistake (firing an official or making a grossly misjudged supply prediction), for that would imply weakness and to maintain power the Party must seem eternally right and strong.

All Hail Big Brother!  Boo Hiss everyone else! Two Minute Hate all around!

And this is only the warm up act.

Mindless II: The Sequel

San Antonio, TX: “When you get to name calling that just shows that there is no logic to your argument any further. It’s all emotion, ” said George Rodriguez, President of the San Antonio Tea Party.

The teacher’s emotion came from a panelist’s comment that school administration should deport undocumented students.

“So you would have students in this room deported?” asked the teacher.

The panelist replied, “Yes, I would if they were illegal. You bet.”

Rodriguez also told the teacher if the person is here illegally, they are breaking the law.

“You know what I would have? I would have you teach more balanced – conservative,” added Rodriguez.

After those remarks is when the teacher made the Nazi comment saying, “You can just say what you are – a Nazi.”

Edgewood ISD will not be taking any disciplinary action against the teacher.

“He realized he shouldn’t have gone that far, and he gave us a statement and expressed his concern and regret,” said district spokesperson Maclovio Perez.

Perez adds the teacher was at the town hall meeting on his own time and students were invited, but not required to go. Perez went onto to say the teacher is a good educator and has been with the district for more than six years.

The Tea Party would like the chance to go and speak to the districts high school students “to explain to them our position in a controlled, quite, calm manner” added Rodriguez.

Perez said he will proposed the idea to the school administration. (WOAI)

And they will politely blow it off. The Left yet again goes over the cliff and no one on the Left cares.It’s no big deal and we have the excuses to prove it. So what if this was the GOVERNMENT teacher. Gee, I wonder if he even teaches the Constitution?

Your kids are in good Hands at this school. 🙂

Proof: Eyehatehicks (comments): Good for him! lol All these tea party hicks want to name call Obama a socialist all the time! But we cant call them a Nazi when they act like fascists? lol yeah right, you feeble minded Republicans can talk a lot of trash but you cant back it up! Good job! lmao

That’s what your dealing with, 2 years olds. Get used to it. (bet he doesn’t even know what the words mean…can you hear the parrot voice in his head?).

Godwin’s Law: As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1. In other words, Godwin observed that, given enough time, in any online discussion—regardless of topic or scope—someone inevitably criticizes some point made in the discussion by comparing it to beliefs held by Hitler and the Nazis.

That’s especially true of Liberals. You’re either a Racist, a Nazi, or just too stupid to understand their superiority.

If you feel so inclined to post a respectful disagreement with our dear Liberal email: Jonathan.Bryant@eisd.net

But do not violate Godwin’s Law in the process. But also, don’t expect a reply either.

But it is curious that that in the same town in May 2010 they were talking about suspending a teacher for even bringing up SB1070 in class because it was an “attack” on Mexicans.

But a Liberal calling someone a Nazi. No big deal. Move on, nothing to see here. 🙂

Commenter atomic weasal: You’re not officially winning an argument with a liberal until he stomps his foot, calls you a Nazi, takes his ball, and goes on home.

Or a racist, or some other childish assertion. Liberals don’t like debate.

Obama said 2012 would be an especially tough election because people are discouraged and disillusioned with government, but he also said he was determined because so much is at stake.

The GOP alternative, Obama said Sunday, is “an approach to government that will fundamentally cripple America in meeting the challenges of the 21st century.”

Remember “civility”, “compromise”, “unity” he doesn’t. 🙂

Another Government shutdown, you say?

At issue is a small part of the almost $4 trillion budget intended for an infrequent purpose: federal dollars to help victims of floods, hurricanes, tornadoes and other natural disasters and whether some of the expense should be offset by cuts in other government spending.

The current standoff raises a question: If lawmakers can’t even agree to help victims of natural disasters, how are they going to strike a deal to cut $1.5 trillion in spending this fall in the white-hot climate of presidential and congressional politics? (townhall.com)

They can’t. And they won’t. It’s that simple.

If Americans want to see some really fancy footwork, just watch the senior members of the Obama Administration as they do the hokey pokey. The President is, perhaps, the greatest dancer of all as he constantly talks about his policy goals, waves it all about, only to take it all back as he turns himself around.

He knows his speech/bill is not going to pass. He just wants the Republicans to take the blame for it. He throws a stink bomb in the run, it goes off, and it’s the Republicans fault. That’s all it is.

Vote for me, the other guys an asshole who doesn’t want to do anything and I do.

But the cure being worse than the disease is not on his mind. Just re-election at any cost.

President Obama puts his Left hand in, then takes his Left hand out; he does the hokey pokey and he twists himself around, and that’s what it’s all about! (Lurita Doan)

A LUMP OF COAL IN YOUR STOCKING

EPA: Causing electricity costs to necessarily skyrocket while killing American jobs one ridiculous regulation at a time.

Get ready, the EPA has implemented a new regulation called the “Cross-State Air Pollution Rule,” and it’s going to cost a lot of a money and Americans will pay with their jobs. The new rule will force coal power plants to limit emissions and pay for emissions that cross state lines through the air. From the EPA website: 

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalized a rule that protects the health of millions of Americans by helping states reduce air pollution and attain clean air standards. This rule, known as the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR), requires 27 states to significantly improve air quality by reducing power plant emissions that contribute to ozone and/or fine particle pollution in other states. (Sounds a Bit “Cap & Trade”-y doesn’t it!) 🙂

“The EPA is ignoring the cumulative economic damage new regulations will cause,” said Steve Miller, president and CEO of the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity.  “America’s coal-fueled electric industry has been doing its part for the environment and the economy, but our industry needs adequate time to install clean coal technologies to comply with new regulations.   Unfortunately, EPA doesn’t seem to care.”

Susan Kraemer at CleanTechnica can barely contain her excitement at the prospect of environmental regulations. In an article titled “Obama’s EPA Cues 130 Billion Race to Cut Pollution By 2015”, she reports that the EPA will shut down 20 percent of coal plants through the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule. She acknowledges the cost of these regulations ($130 billion), but insists that this is actually good for the economy.

How, pray tell, does $130 billion in regulatory expenses transform into a $130 billion boon?

Because it will push coal plants out of the way and free up energy production for green technology, of course! (the fact that “green” energy is at least 20 years from viability doesn’t matter- The Agenda is The Agenda! ans we’ll force it on you whether you like or need it we don’t care. It makes us “feel” good.)

The EPA will shut down an estimated 20% of the nation’s coal plants through the ground-level ozone rule (the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR) ) through cap and trade that is about to be implemented in January 2012. Opponents of the Obama administration’s “over-reaching” EPA say these are costly regulations. Financial analysts estimate that the cost of this rule will be $130 billion by 2015. But if that figure is correct, that’s good news for the US economy.

Because there is another way of looking at that $130 billion “expense”. One industry’s expense is another industry’s sales bonanza. For the coal industry’s balance sheet, it is an expense, but think about who is going to perform this $130 billion cleanup – fairies? Hardly. This is a job for real American industries.

In the most depressed economy since the Great Depression, a slew of US companies will be selling the clean energy solutions (and adding employees to manufacture them) as coal companies must begin a race to have the least polluting coal plants.

Real American industries? Like Solyndra? Given all the green scandals that are coming to light, now might not be the best time to advocate these types of solutions. The kicker, though, comes in the last paragraph of the article:

A hand-full of coal industry plutocrats are simply not able to inject $130 billion into the US economy just taking cruise trips around the Mediterranean or whatever it is that they do with the profits that they don’t spend cleaning up.

If the concern is that coal plants don’t put enough money into the economy, then what’s going to happen once there are fewer of them? My guess is that we will be left on the hook for more large loans to green technology companies that eventually go bankrupt, and other goodies that could only come about when people like Kraemer decide they know best how companies should spend their profits.

Say, are poor people going to be hurt by this? 🙂

So get out your vastly underpowered, over priced solar panels out and heat up your government approved no-fat, no-salt, no taste gruel then drive your electric car /hybrid car (if you can afford one that is)-according to the Energy Information Administration, vehicles that currently cost $15,000 will be regulated out of existence and be replaced by more expensive cars that meet fuel economy and emissions requirements. They claim they want to help poor people – but maybe they just want them dependent on the government for their transportation needs. 

But what we really don’t understand is why the Obama Administration would work to eliminate hundreds of thousands of good-paying jobs – many of them filled with union workers who swore a loyal oath to the President…the DeFour Group. . . estimates that auto industry job loss when the 55 to 66 mpg fuel standards are met in 2025 could reach 220,000) to your government approved job and be happy that the government runs your life for you.

Think I’m being hyperbolic?  Tom Vilsack, the same guy who said Food Stamps was an economic stimulus:

It’s not like you have a choice.

Perish the Thought. As a matter of fact, perish all thoughts. It’s much easier that way. That way you can never be a racist, politically incorrect, or a Nazi ever again.

Is’t that just peachy-keen neato! Like totally, for sure… 🙂

The King of Unity

Congratulations have to go out to President Obama, while he is selling out our allies to the Russians and ignoring or encouraging Muslim Jihadists he was named as the MOST POLARIZING PRESIDENT IN US HISTORY by Gallup (2 years running!).

Maybe he can put it next to his *snicker* Nobel Peace Prize 🙂

Political Cartoons by Gary McCoy

The “first black president”, “the post-racial president”, “the unifier”.

“Unity is the great need of the hour – the great need of this hour. Not because it sounds pleasant or because it makes us feel good, but because it’s the only way we can overcome the essential deficit that exists in this country.

I’m not talking about a budget deficit. I’m not talking about a trade deficit. I’m not talking about a deficit of good ideas or new plans.

I’m talking about a moral deficit. I’m talking about an empathy deficit. I’m taking about an inability to recognize ourselves in one another; to understand that we are our brother’s keeper; we are our sister’s keeper; that, in the words of Dr. King, we are all tied together in a single garment of destiny.” –BarackObama.com

http://www.gallup.com/poll/145937/Obama-Approval-Ratings-Polarized-Year-Year.aspx

Real Clear Politics-  Jan 2008: And Sen. Barack Obama’s repeated and eloquent claims to being able to unite Americans are a major reason for his present, and very possibly eventual, success in his quest for his party’s nomination for president of the United States.

I do not doubt Mr. Obama’s sincerity. The wish that all people be united is an elemental human desire. But there are two major problems with it. First, it is not truly honest. Second, it is childish.

First is its dishonesty. Virtually all calls for unity — whether national, international or religious (as in calls for Christian unity) — do not tell the whole truth.

If those who call for unity told the whole truth, this is what they would say: “I want everyone to unite — behind my values. I want everyone who disagrees with me to change the way they think so that we can all be united. I myself have no plans to change my positions on any important issues in order to achieve this unity. So in order to achieve it, I assume that all of you who differ with me will change your views and values and embrace mine.”

Take any important issue that divides Americans and explain exactly how unity can be achieved without one of the two sides giving up its values and embracing the other side’s values.

Wasn’t Unity, “hope and Change” etc. the clarion call that we who were not duped by it knew to be utterly false!

After all, bi-partisanship to a Liberal means I win, you lose.

It is fascinating how little introspection Sen. Obama’s “unity” supporters engage in — they are usually the very people who most forcefully advocate multiculturalism, who scoff at the idea of an American melting pot and who oppose something as basic to American unity as declaring English the country’s national language.

Their advocacy of multiculturalism and opposition to declaring English the national language are proof that the calls of the left-wing supporters of Barack Obama for American unity are one or more of three things: 1. A call for all Americans to agree with them and become fellow leftists. 2. A nice-sounding cover for their left-wing policies. 3. A way to further their demonizing of the Bush administration as “divisive.”

Now it’s called “Civility” that is used to shut you up if you dare speak out against them.

After all, the Liberals are all mushy and gushy about the protestors in Egypt who were in an uprising against an oppressive government. Only when it happened here, The Tea Party, they were “astro turf”, “Stupid”, “Morons”, “idiots”, “racists”, “domestic terrorists” and the litany of childish insults continues to this day.

Utterly Fascinating.

And why after almost a year did ABC News suddenly want to go back to the racial profiling well?

Could it be an “election cycle”?? Does the media need to start dividing and conquering even more. Gotta get the Hispanics on the left’s side, so let’s go after the Gringos again and make them all look like frothing hood-wearing KKK again!

FEAR IS HOPE!

Now that’s “unity”. 🙂

The Ministry of Truth

“I’m sad to report today a death of a good friend to all of us…..Journalism, the once esteemed 4th estate of our nation and the protector of our freedoms and a watchdog of our rights has passed away after a long struggle with a crippling and debilitating disease of acute dishonesty aggravated by advanced laziness and the loss of brain function.”–Governor Mike Huckabee (2009)

Just days before the biggest election in my lifetime and you want to know where the Mainstream Media is?

Stumping for the Democrats and trying to smear the Republicans as best they can.

And The President?

He’s on Spanish Language radio telling hispanics to get to the polls to stop their “enemies” (aka non-socialist democrats).

In one recent example, on Monday President Obama urged Latinos to “punish our enemies” during a Univision broadcast.

“If Latinos sit out the election,” Obama said, “instead of saying, ‘We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us,’ if they don’t see that kind of upsurge in voting in this election, then I think it’s gonna be harder . . . “

“He’s the president of the United States. The president is supposed to be the president of all the people, even those who disagree with his agenda and who disagree with him,” FOX’s Monica Crowley said.

He and the Media obviously don’t think so.

He’s only interested in his apparatchiks. Everyone else is an “enemy” of his State.

After all, the end justifies the means.

“The session of Congress now drawing to a close was the most productive in nearly half a century,” the AP’s Jim Abrams touted Monday.

On CBS’s Sunday Morning, correspondent Rita Braver applauded House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as “one of the most effective speakers in congressional history,” “a hero in some quarters,” and “the irresistible force who marshaled House Democrats to pass controversial administration policies — including the stimulus package, Wall Street reform, and health care.”

CBS’s Lesley Stahl popped up on MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Monday to fret how the dreadful economy is hurting Obama’s image, as if his administration’s policies are thoroughly unrelated: ”He’s fighting an economy that just won’t give him anything….No credit. No credit at all for what he’s accomplished.”

The broadcast TV networks have systematically skewed their coverage against Republicans and the Tea Party, a new study by the Media Research Center finds. MRC analysts reviewed the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts from September 1 through October 25. Key findings:

■ Only conservative/Tea Party candidates cast as “extreme.” Congressional Democrats and President Obama are facing voters’ wrath because of their extreme agenda over the past two years: government-run health care; massive unsupportable spending; a proposed “cap-and-trade” tax on energy, higher income taxes, etc. But MRC analysts found 35 evening news stories which conveyed the Democratic spin point that conservative and Tea Party candidates are “extreme,” “fringe,” or “out of the mainstream,” vs. ZERO stories conveying the charge that left-wing Democrats are “out of the mainstream.”

■ Three times more “conservative” labels than “liberal” tags. Out of 62 ideological labels assigned by reporters, three-fourths (48, or 77%) were aimed at conservatives, vs. just 14 (23%) for liberals. Only Republicans faced extreme labels — both Joe Miller and Christine O’Donnell were tagged as “ultra-conservatives” — with no Democrat ever branded an “ultra-liberal.”

CBS called Pennsylvania Republican Pat Toomey “conservative,” but Democrat Joe Sestak was not labeled as “liberal.” All of the networks called Christine O’Donnell a “conservative,” but none said her opponent, Chris Coons, was “liberal.” Most comically, CBS would not call loud-mouthed Florida Rep. Alan Grayson a “liberal,” but tagged his opponent Daniel Webster as “conservative.”

■ Adopting Democrats’ campaign agenda. The networks elevated contests meant to show Republicans in a poor light. While it’s not on anyone’s list of closest races, the networks devoted the most coverage to Delaware’s Senate race (15 evening news stories), emphasizing O’Donnell’s perceived gaffes. Next: the California Governor’s race (11 stories), emphasizing allegations against GOP nominee Meg Whitman. Rounding out the networks’ Top 5 were Senate races in Alaska, Nevada, and West Virginia, each the focus of four stories.

The Democrats’ strategy to salvage the 2010 campaign was to distract voters from their record over the past two years and paint their opponents as wacky extremists. Win or lose, the Democrats got a lot of help from their friends in the supposedly objective “news” media. (MRC)

And mind you, many on the left have called Obama “timid”.  Now that’s scary!!

“Over and over again, we have moved forward an agenda that is making a difference in people’s lives each and every day,” Obama said on Comedy Central last night.

Delusion or something far more darkly Orwellian? You Decide.

“My hope is that those people are rewarded for taking those tough votes,” Obama said. “If they are, then I think Democrats will do fine on Election Day.”

I got my “reward” right here, Herr Obama… <<Censored>>

So I ask you to walk with me, and march with me, and join your voice with mine, and together we will sing the song that tears down the walls that divide us, and lift up an America that is truly indivisible, with liberty, and justice, for all.–Candidate Obama January 2008.

The Twilight Zone or Just an Orwellian Nightmare.

You Decide Next Tuesday,Nov. 2

But don’t expect the Mainstream Media to be  happy afterwards. 🙂

A Letter from The President

Political Cartoon by Steve Kelley

From the Desk of President B. Hussein Obama:

Dear American Voters,

I want to take this opportunity to briefly explain why you simply MUST get out and vote this November 2 in support of our many fine Democratic candidates. There are several good reasons for you to do so, and I would like to touch on a few of them at this time.

First of all, recent polls suggest that former President Bush is now running neck and neck with Me in public opinion polling. This suggests that the Republicans have hatched a secret plan to bring that hateful and hated warmonger cowboy back as President! Think about it: first the Republicans take over the Congress, then they bring back Bush! It is definitely possible that they have hatched just such a nefarious scheme. Some of you have suggested to me that this is not possible due to something about “the Constitution” and “an amendment”. Quite frankly, I’ve never actually had the time to set down and read the thing (sooooooo ancient and boring, and I’ve got a lot of golf to catch up on) so I’ll just have to take your word for it. But even so, I can tell you that the constitution never stops me from doing what I want to, so why would the Republican be any different? So let’s get out the vote to defeat Bush!

Not only do we need to defeat Bush, we need to show the world that you people are over being the bunch of racist rednecks you have been in the past. Let’s face it, up until two years ago this was the most racist, backward, bigoted, redneck country on the face of the Earth. Two years ago you finally managed to get something right for the very first time. If you turn around and change your minds now that will totally blow it! Do you really want our great friends in Saudi Arabia, China, Pakistan and Turkey having to look down on you again because you can’t get it together on human rights? And how can you get it together on human rights if you reject Me, the Great Unifier of All Enlightened Ones? So get out the vote to show that you’re finally catching up with the Yemenis on human rights!

As to you seniors, let Me remind you of what you have to be reminded of every election cycle: If the Republicans win they’ll take away you’re Social Security and Medicare, and probably institute death panels to boot! That’s right, if you don’t vote Democrat there will be a freeze on your annual Cost of Living Adjustment for Social Security. Medicare will be stripped of funding, and you will be left out in the cold, eating cat food and waiting to die. So get out and vote for My party to make sure that there are no Medicare cuts (even if they were in the bill, all $500 Million of them), no Social Security freezes (even though we just froze them), and no death panels!:)

Finally, I expect you to do all you can to ensure My victory in November. You need to vote Democrat. You need to take your friends and family and have them vote Democrat instead. Maybe you could offer them a prize or incentive to get out and vote for Me. Many of you have pets (especially you “eccentric” senior ladies and your cats). Well remember, pets are people too! Just go down to your local Democratic Party HQ and they’ll make sure fluffy gets her absentee ballot. They can even fill it out for you!

Dead people in Chicago, may also apply. But Military personnel may not (they are evil and shouldn’t be allowed to vote). It was mere coincidence that the states that missed the mandated deadline were all liberal states like Illinois and New York.
Looking forward to seeing your smiling faces at my next rally. I need some good fainters for on-camera shots.

Your President for Life, (With ObamaCare that’s very Literally True)

B. Hussein Obama

P.S. I really hate to have to say it, but some of these polls I’ve seen force me to bring it up. Are you a bunch of racists? If not, then it’s time to prove it. Remember, vote Democrat to prove you are not a gun-toting, Bible-clinging, racist, homophobe, xenophobe, Islamophobic, redneck who wants to kill old people and children and go back to the old United States of Amerikkka. (a Blogger named Booger with a few additions by me.)

Obama & Co. don’t care about how hypocritical they look. The blog trashing the Chamber, “Think Progress,” is a project of the Center for American Progress. The Center doesn’t disclose its donors. Moreover, they’ve obviously forgotten the controversy in 2008 when thousands of dollars were pouring into Obama’s Internet coffers from an address in “GA.” The Obama folks said they thought that was “Georgia,” but it was Palestinian money coming from the Gaza Authority (as in the Palestinians).

Still, the network reporters tripped over themselves last week to sell the Obama storyline that Democrats were being swamped by ads from “special interests” that didn’t disclose their donors. Team Obama blames this scenario on the evil Supreme Court, and their ruling in Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission. CBS morning anchor Harry Smith said “thanks to recent Supreme Court decisions,”  a lot of money is pouring in, “especially on the Republican side. Some people suggest that this decision has allowed  all this money to come in and literally takes these elections out of the hands of the voters.”

Notice the double standard there. When Republicans are winning the battle in the polls and in the campaign coffers, voters are losing. When Democrats are winning, democracy has triumphed.(Brent Bozell)

So, vote for the Democrats, a triumph of Orwellian “reason” over common sense.

Why?

Because if you don’t your toothless grandma will be pennyless, homeless and have to live on other people’s dog food if the Republicans win!! 🙂

After all, we are Hope & Change.

And you don’t want to be a Racist, now do you?

Yes You Can. 🙂
