Honk If You Support Obama’s ‘Take Resources From America’s Children And Hand Give Them To The Border Kids Act’

July 15, 2014

Our fascist thug race-baiting attorney general just gave us the same response he ALWAYS gives when his messiah-master is criticized for failing America yet again: “if you oppose anything Obama is doing, you are clearly a racist.”

I am so beyond sick of these race goons.

Obama promised to transcend race and heal the political divide.  That was his core promise to the American people.  It was – we now know as we survey the bitter, vicious political divide he has degenerated people to – his signature lie.

But here’s a group of people who would be all up in Obama’s law-thug’s FACE if he told them that.  And I would pay big money to watch that debate as a large group of black people pointed out the fact that the only racist Eric Holder saw was the one he looked at every morning in the mirror.  As bad as this nation has become, it is at least refreshing to see increasing numbers of the black people who voted for Obama on the basis of his LIES now saying he’s “the worst president ever elected.”  Which of course he is.

The ultimate issue at stake in this complete leadership meltdown at the border isn’t “race.”  It’s about another “R” word: RESOURCES.  And it’s ultimately about whether the United States has any right to continue to exist as a nation or whether a piece of it should be ripped off and handed to every single newly arriving illegal immigrant who walks, runs, floats, swims or crawls across our border.

I have one dollar to spend and I’m a Democrat.  That means I can give one special interest group a dollar, another special interest group a dollar, and so on.

Because, you see, I’m a Democrat and I can pull money out of my ass.

That’s not true, of course.  The truth is more like, “I’m a Democrat and I can pull money out of Other People’s asses.”

Now, it might seem like a rudimentary fact of logic and math to you that if you’ve got one dollar, what that means is that you’ve got one dollar and you can’t spend more because you don’t HAVE more.  But as it turns out Obama Democrats routinely DOUBLE-COUNT the same dollars – as if Obama really WERE a Messiah who could bless and multiply dollars the way Jesus blessed and multiplied loaves and fish – so what’s obvious to you is like astrophysics to them.

Democrats believe we can just keep spending and spending and spending.  What’s another 60,000 children who need to be cared for over the rest of their lives?  What’s another 100,000?  What’s another quarter million?  What’s another million?  It’s only money and we can print as much of it as we need and there will never be any consequences.

It doesn’t work that way in the real world.  But so what?  They don’t LIVE in the real world.

There’s another problem with Democrats’ argument in this border crisis as they try to present themselves as the “humanitarians” and their opponents as “heartless” (to go with racists).   Democrats are NOT people who generously give their own money, as their messiah’s “charitable donations” proves:

Below is Obama’s charitable giving expressed as percentage of his income for the years 2000 to 2006:

  • 2000: 0.9%
  • 2001: 0.5%
  • 2002: 0.4%
  • 2003: 1.4%
  • 2004: 1.2%
  • 2005: 4.7%
  • 2006: 6.1%[4]

This pattern is not surprising given what we know about the uncharitable nature of American liberal politicians and liberals in in general.[5][6]

If you think that’s bad, Joe Biden is actually EVEN WORSE.

Generosity with Other People’s Money is NOT a virtue; it’s a vice of a particular form of particularly degenerate people.

But it’s not even enough to say that “Democrats are generous with other people’s money.”  Because they AREN’T generous in any way, shape or form.  Period.  Rather, they confiscate other people’s money to spend it on their own special interest voting blocs.  They use other people’s money to buy votes for themselves.  That’s all they do.  It’s all they’ve been doing for YEARS now.

If you think Democrats really want real immigration reform, answer me this: why didn’t Obama, the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives and the Democrat-controlled Senate NOT PASS IMMIGRATION REFORM WHEN THEY HAD TOTAL CONTROL OF ALL THREE BRANCHES OF GOVERNMENT ALONG WITH A FILIBUSTER-PROOF MAJORITY???

Democrats don’t give one flying DAMN about the border or immigration or Hispanics and they never have.  They want a political issue to demagogue and slander; and nothing more.  And that is a pure irrefutable FACT.

Back to the dollar thing.  Here’s the real deal: if I have a dollar to spend, do you know how much I can give?  ONE DOLLAR.  I can’t give more.  I can’t give what I don’t have.  I can’t pull money out of my ass or anybody else’s.

If I’m taking care of illegal immigrant children, I am less able to provide for my own children in a world of finite resources.  That’s the way something called “reality” works.

And as I’m increasingly hearing, the stories of babies in diapers is a red herring.  What we’re in fact seeing is a tsunami of 14-17 year-old males many of whom have VIOLENT CRIMINAL GANG tattoos.

Not that there’s all that much difference between gang bangers and what the Obama thug IRS and EPA is doing.

What Barack Obama and the Democrat Party propose right now to deal with the complete chaos that Obama has created on the border is to do NOTHING to actually stem the flood of underage illegal immigrants.  Nope.  He wants to provide for them.  He wants to pay for their judges and their lawyers and their health care and their education and their food and their clothing and their housing and their pathways to citizenship and their enrollment in the Democrat Party machine.

This “crisis” is exactly how the Obama administration has ALWAYS governed since their “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste” outset.  Obama MOCKED the Republicans for demanding more border security three years ago:

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: “They said we needed to triple the border patrol. Well, now they’re going to say we need to quadruple the border patrol. Or they’ll want a higher fence. Maybe they’ll need a moat.”

(LAUGHTER)

OBAMA: “Maybe they’ll want alligators in the moat. They’ll never be satisfied!”

You know what, you fascist turd?  Yeah, alligators would help.  And then I’d REALLY want you to get off your worthless skinny ass and go to the damn border.  Because with any luck you’d fall into the moat and America’s long nightmare would finally mercifully end.

As it is, do you remember our Hypocrite-in-Chief demonizing George Bush for AT LEAST BOTHERING TO SHOW UP IN A PLANE that flew over the disaster?

OBAMA:  “When the people of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast extended their hand for help, help was not there.  When people looked up from the rooftops, for too long they saw an empty sky.  When the winds blew and the floodwaters came, we learned that for all of our wealth and our power, something wasn’t right with America.  We can talk about what happened for a few days in 2005, and we should.  We can talk about levees that couldn’t hold, about a FEMA that’s seen as not just incompetent but paralyzed and powerless, about a president who only saw the people from the window of an airplane.”

The only thing Obama flew over was a series of fundraisers.  Because that’s his true heart.  And to be a Democrat means to be a hypocrite without any shame, any honor, any virtue or any integrity.

Obama LIED about his border statistics to create a completely false and dishonest picture about border security and what he was actually doing:

In a stunning admission before a House Committee panel on Tuesday, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson admitted that the Obama Administration has been artificially inflating deportation numbers. While the administration has claimed a “record number” of deportations, earning Pres. Obama the nickname “Deporter in Chief”, Johnson admitted that they have been counting border apprehensions that are turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers as deportations. [...]

Jessica Vaughan, the Director of Policy Studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, has been arguing that actual deportations have declined under Pres. Obama. In her research, she says that if you count all removals, including those done by ICE and Border Patrol, then the Obama administration averages 800,000 removals per year. In comparison, George W. Bush would have removed more than 1.3 million illegal aliens per year, and Bill Clinton would have removed more than 1.5 million per year.

Vaughan also found that if you examine deportations from enforcement efforts by ICE, the number declined by 19 percent between 2011 and 2012 and was on track to decline another 22 percent in 2013. Further, the total number of deportations in 2011 was the lowest level since 1973.

Obama was – during these years since – abrogated and ignored our border laws.  To appease his Hispanic special interest voting bloc, he has SCREWED America in his treasonous vote-buying scheme.  Obama and his Hispanic voting bloc are literally letting convicted criminals flood into America:

DHS document: 68,000 illegal immigrants with criminal convictions released in 2013
By Alexander Bolton – 03/31/14 05:45 AM EDT

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials last year released 68,000 illegal immigrants with criminal convictions, undercutting Democratic claims that President Obama has strictly enforced immigration laws.

An internal Department of Homeland Security document compiling statistics on arrests and deportations in 2013 showed that ICE agents encountered 193,357 illegal immigrants with criminal convictions but issued charging documents for only 125,478. More than 67,800 were released.

The data came from an end-of-year “Weekly Departures and Detention Report.”

The Center for Immigration Studies, a research group that favors stricter enforcement of immigration laws, estimates ICE agents released more than a third of illegal immigrants with criminal records they detained.

“ICE released 68,000 criminal aliens in 2013, or 35 percent of the criminal aliens encountered by officers. The vast majority of these releases occurred because of the Obama administration’s prosecutorial discretion policies,” Jessica Vaughn, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, wrote in a memo summarizing the DHS document.

ICE classifies illegal immigrants as criminal if they have been convicted of a crime, not including traffic offense, Vaughn noted.

In shocking and frankly terrifying testimony, the head of the ICE union OVER A YEAR AGO testified to these facts about how Obama has demonically CRIMINALIZED any attempt to enforce our nation’s border laws:

“Internally, the agency, in my opinion is falling apart. Morale is at an all-time low, according to recent federal surveys. The agency refuses to train our officers on these new policies, resulting in mass confusion and frustration… nobody really knows what’s going on.” …    “As our officers are investigated by ICE for enforcing U.S. immigration law as they see other officers threatened with suspensions for lawful arrests, increasingly officers feel they have become the enemy of this administration.”

I wrote about that at the time.  Here’s the link.

Here’s a picture that’s worth about eighteen trillion words or whatever our official debt is under this fool Obama.  It’s  national DISGRACE:

Just like it’s a national disgrace that our LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS on the border were ordered by this wicked president to literally run away if criminal cartel thugs fired at them.

So yeah, conservatives like me have been watching this NATIONAL DISGRACE on our border under this demon-possessed “president” for YEARS.  And Obama kept lying and saying there wasn’t a problem and mocking us for trying to tell the truth.  Well, now it’s obvious even to the most demon-possessed morons (i.e., Democrats) and what are we hearing now?  The out-of-control border that Obama spent the last six years denying was out of control is OUR fault.

And you truly DO have to be demon-possessed to believe this kind of lie from hell.  Because ordinary human faculties simply cannot be capable of this level of self-deceived stupidity on their own.

Now Obama has the crisis he INTENTIONALLY created and he’s trying to exploit it with everything he’s got.

If you think Obama gives one flying DAMN about your child when he’s leisurely strutting around Martha’s Vineyard on another one of his innumerable golf vacations, you’re so far beneath stupid there isn’t even a word to describe how damn dumb you are.

Obama is still praising himself as having “the most transparent administration in history.”  It doesn’t matter if even 38 LIBERAL journalism organizations are saying he’s the most FASCIST president we’ve ever had.  And this fascist president is ordering his jack-booted government thugs to prevent ANY factual record whatsoever of how horrifying the disaster at the border truly is from getting out with information bans that rivaled one of Hitler’s death camps:

 The rules are very stringent.  Number one: You can’t ask questions.  Number two: There can be no recording devices.  Number three: You can’t talk to any of the staff. You can’t talk to the children. You can’t talk to the medical personnel. And if you have questions, you can send an e-mail. You can’t take any pictures, but after the tour, they will send pictures to you. But there can be no pictures during the tour.  This is not what we expect in the United States of America, and certainly the media here needs to stand up for itself.

Meanwhile, Obama is busing and flying tens of thousands of illegal immigrants as the Coyote-in-Chief to states across the board, and “the most transparent administration in history” isn’t even bothering to inform ANYONE when he’s about to dump a new batch of illegals on some poor, hapless city or town.

Yeah, the media needs to stand up for itself against Obama.  The psycho left watching the psycho left.  The way Joseph Goebbels stood up to Hitler.

Obama is only too happy to screw America if it will result in more Democrats flooding into the welfare roles that are already bankrupting this country (see here and here and here for examples of that).

Our actual debt right now is very close to $250 TRILLION when you calculate it using the Congressional Budget Office’s Alternative Fiscal Scenario (that measures something called the real FACTS).  Consider what it was back in August 2012:

“The U.S. fiscal gap, calculated using the Congressional Budget Office’s realistic long-term budget forecast — the Alternative Fiscal Scenario — is now $222 trillion. Last year, it was $211 trillion. The $11 trillion difference — this year’s true federal deficit — is 10 times larger than the official deficit…”

Do the math.  Add $11 trillion for the year 2013 and another $11 trillion for this year.  The rate of increase in our debt is very probably considerably higher than a mere $11 trillion by now, but we’re at $244 trillion.  Pay up for your bennies, America.

How much longer do you figure liberal bureaucrats can keep adding zeroes to the Federal Reserve computer to “create” more money before it all comes crashing down in an implosion that will make the Great Depression look like fun by comparison???  I want you to stop and realize that you and your family and your children will DESERVE to suffer horribly because you were part of this.

Here’s an interesting little fact: the tens of thousands of young illegal immigrants flooding into the United States are fleeing LEFTIST GOVERNMENTS that dominate Central America.

There’s only ONE difference between the reckless and depraved policies of Central American leftist banana republics and Obama’s leftist America: the United States has the power of being the world’s reserve currency.  Which means we can keep recklessly printing money until that power is taken away from us.  Which it WILL be very soon due to the sheer staggering depravity and irresponsibility of Barack Obama and the Democrat Party.

Political leftism is SUICIDE by national stupidity.  Period.  These governments have destroyed all private business and there are no jobs and no economies and these socialist states can’t run anything any better than America can run ObamaCare.

The day after we lose reserve currency status, we are going down into a national nightmare that we will never emerge from.  Because we won’t be able to just print money any more and no one in their right mind will loan so much as a dime to us.

But don’t worry: Democrats won’t suffer.  Because out of the suffering, out of the despair, out of the panic that they caused, the truly bad people that America has become will do the unthinkable: they will in their panic and fear demand that THE GOVERNMENT THAT CAUSED THIS PROBLEM STEP IN TO HELP THEM.  And we will be the socialist communist people’s republic that the left have been dreaming about for decades.

Hell is coming.  It is now a foregone conclusion.  And hell is coming because of the Democrat Party that has now murdered more babies since 1973 – 56,662,169 innocent children – than the TOTAL number of people – 56,125,262 – who died during our most terrible war of all of human history.  Hell is coming because of the Democrat Party who brought the full wrath of God down upon America when it imposed the worship of homosexual sodomy on this nation.

And the Antichrist, the beast of the Book of Revelation, the ultimate big government dictator, will fulfill every Democrat’s dreams until they ultimately burn in hell for all eternity.  Because ultimately GOD IS NOT MOCKED.

You keep calling yourself “a good person” because you support the wicked system of socialist political patronage where you force OTHER PEOPLE to pay for your party’s votes until the only nation that called itself “One nation under God” collapses under the weight of your sins.  You’re going to be calling yourself “a good person” in hell soon.

The number of these kids is surging out of control and will continue to surge even MORE out of control as Latin America wakes up to the fact that Barack Obama WILL NOT enforce our border laws.  By the time Obama is out of office, we could be looking at millions of bottomless pits wanting your kid’s resources and your kid’s education and your kid’s job.

Obama’s “DREAM” for illegal immigrants will be a NIGHTMARE for your kids, mark my words.

 

How To Fix The Border Crisis Pronto: Make Obama and DNC Pay For ‘Situation’ Out Of Their FUNDRAISERS

July 9, 2014

Obama is going to the border.

Don’t get your hopes up, liberals.  He won’t be walking on water to solve the ‘situation’ (that’s Obamaspeak for the godawful mega DISASTER his foolish and wicked policies created).  Nope.  He’s just going there to do fundraisers.

Whores want more and more of what they lust after.  Obama doesn’t care about solving America’s crises; he lusts for cold, hard CASH and he always HAS lusted for cold, hard cash since he became THE FIRST candidate of any major political party to refuse campaign matching funds so he could horde more campaign money in the history of the human race and bust our campaign finance system in the process.

So we’ve got this crisis where the children who aren’t literally DYING or getting sold as slaves into sex trafficking rings end up overwhelming our resources to such a staggering degree that Obama – our Coyote-in-Chief – is simply ordering tens of thousands of children flown or bused all over America so they will become Somebody Else’s Problem.  And Obama can’t be bothered.

Remember that picture that the mainstream media used to demonize George Bush when he flew over the Hurricane Katrina disaster?  I mean, George Bush was a deeply caring man compared to Obama.  Because it is already a matter of official documented historical FACT that the ONLY way Obama will take a lookey-loo at the border fiasco he created is if he’s forced to by his own party’s panic.

WH: Obama won’t visit border while attending three TX fundraisers next week
Jul 07, 2014

President Barack Obama will attend three fundraisers in Texas next week but will not travel to the border to see the crisis that many say he has exacerbated by not enforcing the country’s immigration laws and vowing to enact unilaterally more executive actions to ease deportations.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said at Thursday’s White House press briefing that Obama is scheduled to attend a fundraiser for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in Dallas on Wednesday and two events for the Democratic National Committee in Austin on Wednesday and Thursday.
When pressed about Obama’s decision not to go to the border and the military bases and detention centers where illegal immigrant children are being warehoused, Earnest said Obama has all the information that he needs from his senior advisors.

Obama couldn’t care less.  He’s after what’s really important to him: campaign money for his politics and his ideology.

Democrats are finally abandoning him:

A Democrat congressman from Texas is concerned the Obama administration’s handling of the immigration crisis will blow up politically, becoming Obama’s “Katrina moment.”

The crisis has been developing for months and came about because of the tens of thousands of illegal aliens – many of them children – who are making their way mostly from Central America to the U.S. border.

Their goal appears to be the benefits that are assured to those who are able to breach the U.S. border and enter the country.

The housing, medical, education and other costs of all of the illegal aliens has yet to be calculated, but President Obama already is asking Congress for nearly $4 billion to get things going.

But Rep. Henry Cuellar is worried that the issue will blow up on the president.

His remarks:

“I’m sure that President Bush thought … that he could just look at everything from up in the sky, and then he owned it after a long time,” Cuellar told Fox News’ Neil Cavuto this week. “So I hope this doesn’t become the Katrina moment for President Obama, saying that he doesn’t need to come to the border. He should come down.”

Bush was criticized intensely following the Katrina disaster for flying over the damaged region, and especially for allowing distribution of a photograph of him looking out of Air Force One at the damage.

Bush later told NBC that the release of the image was a mistake and confirmed he should have landed the jet to meet with officials about the recovery efforts following the hurricane.

Spokesmen for Obama have said he knows well what’s going on along the southwestern border regarding the crisis of illegal aliens, and he hasn’t needed to visit personally.

In fact, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said, at one point, “The president is well aware of what is happening along the Southwest border. …”

Cuellar, however, said Obama “should come down to the board and see exactly what’s happened.”

If the mainstream media had so much as a tiny semblance of any legitimacy or credibility, there would be a photograph on the front pages of the New York Times and Los Angeles Times of Obama looking out the window on the way to his FUNDRAISERS with the caption, “Bush was so much better than this failed turd it’s beyond unreal.”

Understand, Hurricane Katrina wasn’t Bush’s fault.  Unlike Obama, Bush never claimed the ability to lower the oceans and heal the planet the way Obama did.  What happened to Bush was a once-in-a-thousand-year hurricane that hit a state and in particular a city that was so steeped in Democrat corruption it was beyond unreal.  Just today, Major Ray Nagin who infamously allowed hundreds of buses to sit idly in the flood while people DROWNED was convicted on 20 counts for accepting more than half a million dollars in bribes.  There was no way the federal government could adequately take over the ENTIRE response because the entire FEMA system was structured on the STATE assuming most of the responsibility.  But in this case the state was so corrupt and had squandered so much of its disaster-prevention and relief resources that the people who had voted for that corrupt government had NOTHING.

Bush made the mistake that Obama will never make: Bush assumed responsibility.  The buck stopped with him, unlike Obama who has NEVER accepted responsibility in his life unless “responsibility” only means “taking credit.”  You know, like when he took credit for the safe, stable Iraq Bush handed him and then blamed Bush after his own failed policies of cut-and-run horrifyingly backfired on him as ISIS created a terrorist caliphate where one had never existed before prior to Obama’s failed presidency.

Obama is now so politically toxic that the three top Democrats don’t want ANYTHING to do with him in Colorado.  Do you remember the adoring crowds of liberals worshiping their messiah as he strode among the Grecian columns???  Now, thanks to the worst fail in the history  of humanity, he’s a toxic, radioactive pariah.

Obama – true to form – is blaming Bush for the massive invasion of illegal immigrant children who are flooding over America SIX YEARS INTO OBAMA’S FAILED PRESIDENCY.  Obama claims that the law passed by a Democrat House and Senate and signed into law by Bush tie his hands.  But that is of course bullcrap.  The law had a VERY narrow intent: to reduce the sexual trafficking of children and to help child victims of sexual trafficking.  It was NOT intended to force America to accept millions of children whose parents are paying coyotes thousands of dollars to bring them into America.  Even Diane Feinstein – the law’s co-sponsor – has stated that Obama could end this crisis at any point if he just LED.  But he doesn’t WANT to lead in any sphere that doesn’t advance his wicked and foolish ideology.

Anyway, Obama can’t be bothered to actually show up at the border and, you know, accept a little bit of responsibility for fixing his mess.  But he CAN demand nearly $4 billion in taxpayer money to mindlessly throw at “the situation.”

The problem is, of course, like ALL of Obama’s “solutions,” his $4 billion “fix” does NOTHING to actually fix the problem of tens of thousands of children illegally streaming across the border.

Do you know what Obama wants those billions of dollars for?  To hire more lawyers and judges to process the illegal immigrants faster.

Do you know what WOULD solve the problem?  Put the National Guard on the border and simply turn these people BACK.  DON’T let them enter the United States to begin with.

Let me point something out: if the money Democrats were fundraising for their precious election campaigns were what they had to use to deal with this damn crisis they created, they would be doing just that.  They’d suddenly have that magical moment of reality when they realized that allowing these people to pour in and live at massive expense (if it was THEIR massive expense) was simply not acceptable.  Much the same way that if you demanded all these Democrats who said “It’s America’s responsibility to take care of all of these poor people” would suddenly think differently if it were to become THEIR responsibility to provide for these illegal immigrants in their homes with their food.  From now until the end of time, Democrats love to force other people and other people’s money to fund their perverted self-righteousness.

As long as Obama is allowed to spend Other People’s Money to fix his crises, you can rest assured he’ll keep creating more crises and doing nothing to fix any of them.

 

 

Let’s Not Forget Who’s Most Important: No Marines for (Now) Murdered Ambassador In Hell Hole Libya, But A Full Security Detail for Valerie Jarrett Vacation

September 15, 2012

Puke alert time, better put on your raincoats:

No Marines for Libyan Ambassador, Full Security Detail for Valerie Jarrett Vacation
by Ben Shapiro
14 Sep 2012

Ambassador Chris Stevens did not have a Marine detail in Benghazi, Libya. But White House Senior Advisor and Obama confidante Valerie Jarrett has a full Secret Service detail on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, according to Democratic pollster Pat Caddell.

That’s the pathetic foreign policy of the Obama administration, says Caddell today in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News. “Jarrett seems to have a 24 hour, around the clock detail, with five or six agents full time,” Caddell explains. “The media has been completely uninterested. We don’t provide security for our ambassador in Libya, but she needs a full Secret Service security detail. And nobody thinks there’s anything wrong with this. And nobody in the press will ask. What kind of slavish stoogery are they perpetrating here?

“This country has reached the point of absurdity. There are people dead because we don’t have security details for them. But she’s privileged to have a full Secret Service detail on vacation?”

Caddell points out that Americans are already unhappy with President Obama on foreign policy aside from the killing of Osama Bin Laden. Caddell, along with Republican pollster John McLaughlin, runs Secure America, a nonpartisan advocacy group. “We’ve just finished two polls coming out in the field today,” says Caddell, “but we already know that people feel strongly about Iran; they feel strongly about the administration’s policy with regard to Islamic extremists. They don’t like the Obama administration’s handling of these issues. And this election won’t only be about the economy. The American people aren’t stupid. They can walk and chew gum at the same time.” 

Caddell does reserve heavy criticism for the Republican establishment, which he believes has ignored foreign policy issues for far too long. “When three quarters of the American people believe Iran will give nuclear weapons to terrorists, you can see that Americans care about this issue. And people overwhelmingly believe that Obama’s sanctions policies will not work. The pronounced minority who disagree with those positions seem to be centered in the mainstream media – and ground zero seems to be at NBC and MSNBC.”

This is particularly obscene because even the evil and wasteful devil Bush did not give his Great Satan adviser Karl Rove a Secret Service detail:

President Obama has expanded the very small group of top aides who are given the privilege of taxpayer-funded personal drivers — who take them from their house to work and back home again each day — to include two top political advisers.

The Bush White House did not give the same privileges to any of its political advisers, according to former Bush administration officials. There is a record of the Clinton White House doing so once for two months, according to documents obtained by The Daily Caller.

Valerie Jarrett and David Axelrod, both senior advisers to the president, have been given the luxurious and prestigious perk of being picked up at their homes and driven to work or around town throughout the day in government vehicles chauffeured by military drivers, according to a list of those given the benefit provided to The Daily Caller by the White House.

In addition, Jarrett has been made a “protectee” of the Secret Service, a spokesman for the agency said. It is not clear to what extent Jarrett receives protection. Neither the White House or Secret Service would comment on the matter.

“We don’t discuss the scope or nature of protection for any Secret Service protectee due to operational security concerns,” said Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan.

But except for a few weeks after 9/11, political advisers to Bush such as Karl Rove did not have Secret Service details with them except for the rare occasion where they gave a speech where protesters were expected.

Axelrod was given protectee status in the late summer of 2009, according to a blog written by a former Washington Post national security reporter. It is unclear whether he retains that status. Donovan declined to comment on Axelrod’s status.

Regardless, one knowledgeable source indicated that Jarrett has regular or semi-regular detail protection, which has left some questioning whether the close friend of the president’s, whose portfolio involves mostly outreach to the business sector and domestic policy, really needs the high level of security.

Okay, I’m going to quiz you now, and I’m warning you, it’s a tough question.  I say that because even our president wasn’t smart enough to answer it and he’s the most smartest man who ever lived.  Are you ready?

Which one of these people needed to have a security detail more:

Valerie Jarrett:

Or Ambassador Christopher Stevens:

Take your time now.  Like I said, this one COMPLETELY fooled your president.  Mind you, it might have been due to the fact that he’s skipped 62 percent of his daily intelligence briefings and just franklydoesn’t have a damn clue how to do his job.  They seem to have quit counting back in June after Obama had reached his 100th round of golf milestone, but do you have any idea how hard it is to keep your golf game sharp while endlessly campaigning?  Something damn well had to give.

And that’s why Obama was warned about this attack on the US Consulate in Libya a full 48 hours before it happened and did NOTHING:

According to senior diplomatic sources, the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and “lockdown”, under which movement is severely restricted.

And it is why Obama also skipped the daily intelligence briefing the next day after the United States Consulate in Libya was destroyed and Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans were murdered, you see.  Stuff like that just isn’t that important to Obama as compared to his campaigning and his golfing.

Oh, oh: 

There goes Mr. Creosote…

Obama’s ‘Major Policy’ Speech Last Thursday Documents He Is A Failure. His Abrogation Of The Rule Of Law On Friday Documents He Is A Fascist.

June 18, 2012

I thought this blog article which cites USA Today hit part of Obama’s trouble right in the testicles:

“Major economic speech” by Obama planned for Thursday
Posted by: ST on June 13, 2012 at 9:20 am

Via The USA Today:

President Obama will seek to draw economic contrasts with Republican opponent Mitt Romney in what campaign aides are billing as a major speech on Thursday.

In announcing the address at a community college in Cleveland, the Obama campaign said the president will describe his vision as “ensuring that our economy is built to last and restoring economic security for the middle class.”

Obama also plans to condemn Romney’s vision, which the campaign said is “based on the same failed economic policies that brought on the worst crisis since the Great Depression.

“Romney Economics is familiar and troubling,” said the Obama campaign. “More budget-busting tax cuts for the wealthy; fewer rules for Wall Street — the same formula that benefited a few, but that crashed our economy and devastated the middle class.”

Obama is not expected to unveil any new policy proposals of his own; the president is still trying to persuade Congress to adopt elements of a jobs bill he proposed last year.

(Bolded emphasis added by me)

Translation: there’s nothing new here. It’ll just more of the same old song and dance we’ve been hearing for the last three and a half years, jacked up on spinsanity with a generous helping of predictable Democrat class warfare and demagoguery – given in front of (presumably) a captive audience of college students (shocking).

In other news, dog bites man.

BTW, here’s Obama’s fundraising schedule for this week, in the event you actually thought his “presidential responsibilities” excuse for not campaigning for Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett in the Wisconsin recall election was legitimate. Just sayin’ …

Obama’s major speech is a giant bag of wind from the most prolific windbag who ever lived.  Check.

Obama is completely out of ideas.  Check check.

Ninety percent of Obama’s speech was just a slightly different way for Obama to demonize Mitt Romney.  And in what had been built up as a major policy speech at that.  Only ten percent of this speech Obama gave in Ohio on Thursday, April 14 AT BEST discussed what Obama would do if re-elected – which frankly amounted to a steadfast refusal to own up to ANY kind of responsibility for his last four years and a doubling down on what has already been demonstrated to have failed.  The bottom line is that we are currently cursed with a president who doesn’t want to talk about the past but doesn’t have any ideas about the future.

It’s not just me claiming Obama’s “major speech” was a major failure.

Consider leftist Jonathon Alter from MSNBC who said it was “one of the worst speeches I’ve ever heard Barack Obama make.”  And that was actually KIND, given the fact that “Before the speech was over, MSNBC’s Mike O’Brien begged the president to stop.”  While conservatives, of course, are saying, “Don’t you let them interrupt you, Barry Hussein.  By all means, please continue.  You were saying the private sector’s doing fine, right?”

That’s from MSNBC, which without any question is THE most überbiased überObama propaganda out there (see here and here for a couple quick examples).

The reliably leftist Washington Post’s leftist writer Dana Milbank – and this woman is a raving leftie – said that “instead of going to Ohio on Thursday with a compelling plan. for the future, the president gave Americans a falsehood wrapped in a fallacy.”  This in an article titled, “Skip the falsehoods, Mr. President, and give us a plan.”

I mean, thanks for confirming what I’ve been saying all along that Obama is a complete liar without a clue or a plan, but I can’t help but admit my surprise, Dana.  I mean, coming from a woman who once argued that if Obama comes across as stupid, it’s only because he’s just so incredibly brilliant that we frankly don’t deserve his greatness.  Which of course followed the liberal script.

It’s not adequate to say that Barack Obama is a failure; because Barack Obama is an epic failure.

Essentially, Obama’s campaign is about trying to recreate his now thoroughly disillusioned 2008 base.  And the only way that he can do that – because he is a completely failed leader who cannot legislate or compromise – is to issue a “jump the shark” series of executive orders that frankly abrogate the Constitution and the rule of law in America and set a terrifying precedent.  So he demonized his rhetoric of a bogus “war on women” (see here and here and here and here for how that’s working out for him) and then jumped that shark to “come out” in favor of gay marriage in blatant contradiction of his previous posture (see here and here for how that’s working out for him) – and then he just jumped that shark on Friday to abrogate the Constitution in order to recklessly pander to Hispanics.

And what Obama did on Friday was directly related to the colossal turd he laid on Thursday.  Obama HAS to keep jumping the shark because this complete failure SOMEHOW has to keep the support of a base that would otherwise abandon him like a liberal mommy having her baby aborted.

Consider what Obama himself said in the exact context of what he proceeded to do on Friday:

“The idea of doing things on my own is very tempting. I promise you, not just on immigration reform. But that’s not how our system works. That’s not how our democracy functions. That’s not how our Constitution is written.”

And:

“I swore an oath to uphold the laws on the books. That doesn’t mean I don’t know very well the real pain and heartbreak that deportations cause. I share your concerns and I understand them,” he said Monday. “We work every day to make sure we are enforcing flawed laws in the most humane possible way.”

And:

America is a nation of laws, which means I, as the president, am obligated to enforce the law. I don’t have a choice about that. That’s part of my job,” Obama said in March 2011 at a town hall event hosted by the Spanish-language television network Univision. [...]

Congress passes the law. The executive branch’s job is to enforce and implement those laws. And then the judiciary has to interpret the laws,” he said. [...]

There are enough laws on the books by Congress that are very clear in terms of how we have to enforce our immigration system that for me to simply through executive order ignore those congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate role as president.”

Apparently, Obama has limited powers unless he a) gives a crappy speech and b) is losing an election.  Then there is no law, no Constitution, and no democracy.

Which all goes to say that what Obama did was a) un-American (“not the way our system works“); b) anti-democratic (“That’s not the way our democracy functions“); and c) unconstitutional (“That’s not how our Constitution is written“).

When I say Obama is a fascist – and I’ve said it before at length – I mean it as a highly accurate descriptive term rather than merely as a rhetorical ad hominem.  And Barack Obama is a fascist BY OBAMA’S OWN PREVIOUS ADMISSIONS ABOUT WHAT HIS ACT ON FRIDAY CONSTITUTED when he set aside the separation of powers and imposed by “Führer-fiat” what the Congress had explicitly refused.

Liberal progressive legal expert Jonathan Turley (along with a number of other constitutional experts) had this to say about Obama’s action in setting aside the rule of law for his political expedience:

“The president is using executive power to do things Congress has refused to do, and that does fit a disturbing pattern of expansion of executive power under President Obama. In many ways, President Obama has fulfilled the dream of an imperial presidency that Richard Nixon strived for. On everything from (the Defense of Marriage Act) to the gaming laws, this is a president who is now functioning as a super legislator. He is effectively negating parts of the criminal code because he disagrees with them. That does go beyond the pale.”

Obama’s strategy is to set aside and flatly ignore the law for his own political benefit.  Every American who is not deeply troubled by that – troubled enough to not vote for this fascist – is UN-American.

What Obama has done is provide an example of out-and-out lawlessness on the part of the president of the United States.  And when we get a hard-core right wing president the way Obama has been a hard-core left wing president, Obama and the Democrat Party and all of those who voted for Obama and the Democrat Party will be entirely to blame for that president and his extremist actions.  You mark my words.  Because what goes around comes around, and if a Democrat can set aside the law the way Obama has now repeatedly done, well, guess who’s going to be stomping on your necks under your own president’s prior justification???  Conservatives are rising up in a spirit of righteous outrage.  You have repeatedly slapped us in the face through your messiah Obama, and the time is coming when we’re going to punch you hard in the nose and then keep on punching.  And when that day comes, liberals, look to yourselves for blame.

We are watching the unravelling of America as Obama that if his presidency doesn’t succeed, America won’t succeed.

America is losing steam on all economic fronts as we speak.  Europe is falling apart at the seams.  The Middle East is going to hell.  Scandal after scandal is erupting that directly involved the White House.  And Barack Obama is doing more fundraisers than the last five presidents COMBINED.

America doesn’t matter to this Turd-in-Chief.  He’s willing to sell out American foreign policy to the Russians as long as they’ll help him win in November.  And given that we already can see right in front of our faces that Obama is a fascist dictator in his first term, there’s no telling what will happen if he gets a second term and is answerable to nobody and to nothing.

There is absolutely no question that the constant stream of top secret leaks are coming directly out of the White House and that vital secrets are being revealed as a means to create propaganda depicting Obama as a “tough” leader.  General Jack Keane said that the only times that America had ever suffered this much damage to its security was when traitors were selling secrets to our adversaries.  We are literally talking about treason.  

It is VERY possible and even probable that Obama as president declassified vital secrets such as the existence of SEAL Team 6, such as the details of the bin Laden raid and precisely what America found in the compound, such as the top secret operation known as Olympic Games and the computer virus known as Stuxnet, such as the drone missions, such as his use of a “kill list.”  Why would he do something that depraved?  Why, in order to sell long-term American security in exchange for short-term votes, that’s why.  Even Diane Feinstein has publicly stated that no nation will trust America for years to come as a result of these leaks, and it is a fact that intelligence operatives who have cooperated with America have been captured and killed or imprisoned, with far more of that to come.  If Obama declassified these and other secrets that have been leaked in an avalanche unlike anything the American intelligence community has ever seen, Obama will have legalized treason.  As commander-in-chief, a president has the right to declassify secrets.  But no president in American history until Obama will have so despised America that he would see this nation burn if he doesn’t win his election.

Even the very left-leaning Daily Beast is outraged at our Traitor-in-Chief:

Last week, the Times ran two sensational front-page articles, one detailing the president’s personally administered list of terror suspects targeted for assassination—the so-called “kill list,”—the other a book excerpt about the origins of the cyberwarfare program, codenamed Olympic Games, out of which came the Stuxnet virus. Both pieces were widely seen as boosting the president’s credibility on national security just as the 2012 presidential race kicked into high gear. Both pieces cite anonymous current and former high-level officials in the administration. The White House has denied that the leaks were authorized, calling the suggestion “grossly irresponsible.” [...]

This is the nugget of the problem. If information is too dangerous to be public, it’s supposed to be classified. If it isn’t, then it isn’t—full stop. Information isn’t classified—at least it isn’t supposed to be—for political gain or to cover up wrongdoing, or so high-level government officials can unilaterally dole out secrets to their favorite reporters at elite media organizations, or so well-connected politicians can manage the news cycle, undermine enemies, or win allies.

Officially, there is no middle ground. Sadly, leaks out of the Obama administration are beginning to look like official policy. Days before the Stuxnet and kill-list stories in the Times, columnist Glen Greenwald highlighted administration leaks to Hollywood filmmakers for an upcoming production about the raid that killed Osama bin Laden. This, amid the harshest crackdown on unauthorized leaks by any president ever—the Obama administration’s docket of six leak prosecutions under the Espionage Act dwarfs any previous administration’s persecution of loose-lipped officials.

One thing is obvious: Obama only goes after leakers who don’t politically benefit him.

Obama has a long history of personally demonizing people while doing the exact same thing that he demonized them for.  Think of Gitmo, when Obama demonized George Bush – only to keep Gitmo open himself in direct repudiation of his entire presidency by his very own rhetoric.  The same goes for the Patriot Act, for rendition, for military commissions, for domestic eavesdropping and for a long list of other issues.  The liberal New York Times literally accused Bush of “shredding the Constitution.”  Who is shredding it now by the very rhetoric of the left???  In the same way, it is none other than Barack Obama who has violated civil liberties in a manner that goes so far beyond anything that Bush ever did it is almost funny.  The very few liberals who are not abject moral hypocrites (eg., here and here) have pointed this fact out, but the vast majority of liberals who rabidly demonized Bush with froth drooling out of their mouths are nowhere to be seen now that the fascist in the Oval Office is the man they put in there.

Think of Obama’s demonization of Republicans being in the pockets of lobbyists and his lying promises that he would put an end to it.  In fact it’s worse under Obama than it has EVER been, and that according to the liberal Washington Post.  Obama demonized George Bush over the national debt and lied to the American people that he would cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term.  Instead the disgrace has given us more debt than all the previous presidents in history COMBINEDObama demonized Bush as irresponsible and even unpatriotic for his debt; now Obama’s debt dwarfs Bush’s.  Obama demonized George Bush as a failed leader for needing to raise the debt ceiling and voting against that debt ceiling himself; now Obama has THREE TIMES raised the debt ceiling to levels never seen in the history of the human race and demonizing Republicans who didn’t want to vote for it.

All again pointing out the fact that Obama leaking secrets that politically benefit him while at the same time attacking anybody who leaks secrets that doesn’t politically benefit him is par for the course.  Which reminds me of the fact that this man who is supposed to be working so hard to get America back on track recently completely his 100th round of golf – equivalent to taking four months off his job.

Barack Obama is a cynical liar and hypocrite without shame, without honor and without decency.  And that is simply a fact of history.  And so are his followers who will vote for him no matter what he does no matter how offended they were when the other side did a small fraction of what Obama has done.

That’s actually a big part of the reason Obama is pushing all of these leaks as a means of “boosting the president’s credibility on national security.”  He KNOWS that liberals are abject moral hypocrites who will vote for him even if he is murdering American citizens without any kind of trial with predator drones and even if he is personally selecting which terrorists live and which ones die with his political adviser David Axelrod sitting with him.  Obama knows that the left will vote for him no matter what he does because he knows that they are as much fascist hypocrites as he is.  It’s the independents he wants – and these people WANT the president to be like Bush and be tough on terrorist murderers.

And if Obama has to betray America to sell himself to these independents, what is that to him???  Obama is a man who never saw himself as an American to begin with.

Barack Obama is THE most evil man who has ever contaminated the White House.  I saw that in what might even be called a vision the moment I first saw those Jeremiah Wright tapes and realized that Obama had sat for twenty-plus years under the “spiritual leader” and “mentor” Jeremiah Wright and remained for sermon after sermon of this anti-American and racist Marxist.  In my very first political article ever, I betrayed both my naivety and understanding all at once.  I predicted that Democrats would rightly reject Barack Obama in favor of Hillary Clinton due to the Jeremiah Wright revelations; I was wrong because I simply failed to understand how truly depraved Democrats and the Democrat Party had become.  But I also rightly perceived the evil of Obama.  My last words in that very first article of mine were:

If Senator Barack Obama’s presidential aspirations aren’t done for now, they should be. If he wins the nomination, I have every confidence that he will be destroyed in the general election when the Wright issue comes back with a vengeance. Until this week, I believed Senator Hillary Clinton was a far more beatable candidate than Senator Barack Obama. I was wrong.

Barack Obama is far more wrong for sitting under the teaching of such a hateful man for so many years. In doing so, the most liberal Senator in the nation underscores just how extreme his views actually are, and just how dangerous a Barack Obama presidency would be for this country.

Republicans would have had to nominate David Duke for president to even BEGIN to come close to what Democrats did in nominating Barack Obama.  And this nation was asking for it and has dearly paid for it ever since that evil day on June 3, 2008 when he received enough delegates to win the Democrat nomination prior to the economic crash. 

This is God damned America until Obama is thrown out of office.  Now that we’ve seen this failure in action for four years, America has no excuse.  The soul of this nation is at stake in November, and America needs God far, far more than God needs America.

A Week Obama Would Like To Forget Is A Week The American People Most Need To Remember Come Election Day

June 9, 2012

Let’s call it a crappy week for a turd president:

Obama’s week goes from bad to worse
By Dave Boyer – The Washington Times
Friday, June 8, 2012

When President Obama looks back on the past week, perhaps he’ll remember fondly the pies that first lady Michelle Obama purchased for him at a bakery in Virginia – because the rest of his week was a political nightmare.

Mr. Obama’s week to forget began with a disappointing report on the economy on Friday, June 1, showing that the unemployment rate rose to 8.2 percent in May, up from 8.1 percent in April.

It was hardly the kind of news to give Mr. Obama momentum heading into the final five months of his reelection campaign, and he seemed subdued as he spoke to supporters that night at what should have been a raucous campaign fundraiser in his hometown of Chicago.

“We’re not where we need to be,” Mr. Obama said in the mostly quiet ballroom, referring to the jobs report. “We’ve still got miles to go on this journey.”

The president did get to sleep in his own bed in Chicago that night, something he has yearned to do. And the next day, he went for a stroll in his old neighborhood (watched closely by Secret Service agents), another act of freedom for which he’s clamored.

From there, however, things went bad in a hurry.

After Mr. Obama campaigned with former President Bill Clinton Monday night in New York City, Mr. Clinton gave a TV interview Tuesday in which he supported extending temporarily the George W. Bush-era tax cuts for all Americans to help the economy.

That ran counter to the wishes of Mr. Obama, who wants taxes to increase for families earning more than $250,000 per year.

Republicans promptly called for Mr. Obama to follow Mr. Clinton’s advice.

After Team Obama reportedly made urgent calls to Team Clinton, the former president tried to clarify his comments. It would become a harbinger for Mr. Obama’s week.

Also on Tuesday, Republican Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin won his recall election by a comfortable seven percentage points, dealing a harsh blow to Democrats and their union allies that invested heavily in get-out-the-vote efforts. The election was viewed by many as a tipping point in rolling back the political bond between public-employee unions and Democratic office-holders.

“Bad jobs numbers and the failed Wisconsin recall probably makes this president wish he could either sleep in late tomorrow or go back in time and get things right,” said Republican strategist Ron Bonjean.

Some in the Democratic Party blamed Mr. Obama for staying out of the Wisconsin fight. About the only visible step the president took was to issue a “tweet” in support of the Democratic candidate on his personal Twitter account Monday night.

“It’s Election Day in Wisconsin tomorrow, and I’m standing by Tom Barrett. He’d make an outstanding governor,” the president tweeted, using the personal handle “bo.”

Commented Mickey Kraus at the Daily Caller, “He didn’t even use all 140 characters.” The blogger called the effort “wussy.”

Also on Tuesday, Mr. Obama lost a surrogate race in New Jersey to that pesky Clinton fellow. The president’s good friend and ally, Rep. Steve Rothman, lost his Democratic primary to Democratic Rep. Bill Pascrell, who was endorsed by Mr. Clinton. Both House incumbents had been forced to run against each other by redistricting. Mr. Obama had made a show of inviting Mr. Rothman to the Oval Office on June 1 as a signal of his support, but to no avail.

On Wednesday, Mr. Obama took a break from Washington by flying to California for a series of five fundraisers, including a gay-rights gala in Beverly Hills. But on Thursday, fundraising statistics released by both campaigns showed that GOP nominee Mitt Romney had surpassed Mr. Obama for the first time in May, out-raising the president’s campaign $76 million to $60 million.

“We got beat,” said Obama campaign manager Jim Messina, although Democrats said they expected it to be a one-time blip due to Mr. Romney securing the nomination.

Mr. Obama capped off his inglorious week by holding a hastily called news conference at the White House on Friday. It turned out poorly for him.

During a discussion of the economy, Mr. Obama remarked that the “private sector’s doing fine.”

Within an hour, Mr. Romney and other GOP leaders were ridiculing the president for his comment and preparing campaign videos to exploit the gaffe.

“He’s defining what it means to be detached and out of touch with the American people,” Mr. Romney said on the campaign trail, clearing delighting in the opportunity to fire back an accusation that the Obama campaign has used against the Republican.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Virginia Republican, asked the president simply, “Are you kidding?”

By the end of the day, Mr. Obama was forced to clarify his comment, saying “it’s absolutely clear the economy is not doing fine.”

As he walked out of that press conference Friday, a reporter called out to Mr. Obama for his reaction to the Wisconsin recall election. The president kept walking.

But before he reached the door, another reporter shouted a final question, asking Mr. Obama if he’d enjoyed the pie that his wife had purchased for him.

The president turned back momentarily, smiled, and gave a thumbs-up.

I hope you don’t hate America enough to want to inflict four more years of this loser and his loser policies on this country.

P.S. I hope Obama enjoyed his pie as much as I enjoyed watching Wisconsin overwhelmingly reject his ideology last Tuesday.

Who’s Watching The Shop While Obama Endlessly Campaigns??? New Major Scandals Erupting DAILY As Obama Attends More Fundraisers Than Last FIVE Presidents COMBINED

May 4, 2012

The Solyndra President.  Well, make that the Solyndra-EverGreen-SpectraWatt-First Solar-Solar Trust-Abound Solar-BrightSource-LSP Energy-Ener1-SunPower-Beacon Power-ECOtality-A123-Uni Solar-Azure Dynamics President.  Not to mention all the other now-bankrupt green energy crony-capitalist businesses that have stolen more than $2 billion dollars of the American people’s money.

And few Americans have any idea whatsoever how transparently corrupt Barack Obama is.

Eighty percent of all green energy loans provided by the American people’s stimulus money were given to crony capitalist-fascist Obama donors.  Obama is using the American people’s money as a political slush fund to reward his friends:

A new book by Hoover Institution fellow Peter Schweizer details the startling extent of the cronyism that has pervaded President Obama’s “green jobs” push. According to Schweizer, 4 out of every 5 renewable energy companies backed by the Energy Department was “run by or primarily owned by Obama financial backers.”

Those companies’ “political largesse is probably the best investment they ever made in alternative energy,” Schweizer explains. “It brought them returns many times over.”

Such is the inevitable consequence of large government interventions in private markets. Leaving aside the losses associated with transfers of funds from self-sustaining industries to ones that rely on government support, such interventions also encourage unproductive business activities by making “subsidy suckling” far more profitable than run-of-the-mill business expansions or product improvements.

Doug Ross spotted the relevant excerpt of Schweizer’s book (h/t Ben Domenech’s Transom):

When President-elect Obama came to Washington in late 2008, he was outspoken about the need for an economic stimulus to revive a struggling economy… After he was sworn in as president, he proclaimed that taxpayer money would assuredly not be doled out to political friends…

…But an examination of grants and guaranteed loans offered by just one stimulus program run by the Department of Energy, for alternative-energy projects, is stunning. The so-called 1705 Loan Guarantee Program and the 1603 Grant Program channeled billions of dollars to all sorts of energy companies…

…In the 1705 government-backed-loan program [alone], for example, $16.4 billion of the $20.5 billion in loans granted as of Sept. 15 went to companies either run by or primarily owned by Obama financial backers—individuals who were bundlers, members of Obama’s National Finance Committee, or large donors to the Democratic Party. The grant and guaranteed-loan recipients were early backers of Obama before he ran for president, people who continued to give to his campaigns and exclusively to the Democratic Party in the years leading up to 2008. Their political largesse is probably the best investment they ever made in alternative energy. It brought them returns many times over.

…The Government Accountability Office has been highly critical of the way guaranteed loans and grants were doled out by the Department of Energy, complaining that the process appears “arbitrary” and lacks transparency. In March 2011, for example, the GAO examined the first 18 loans that were approved and found that none were properly documented. It also noted that officials “did not always record the results of analysis” of these applications. A loan program for electric cars, for example, “lacks performance measures.” No notes were kept during the review process, so it is difficult to determine how loan decisions were made. The GAO further declared that the Department of Energy “had treated applicants inconsistently in the application review process, favoring some applicants and disadvantaging others.” The Department of Energy’s inspector general, Gregory Friedman, … has testified that contracts have been steered to “friends and family.”

…These programs might be the greatest—and most expensive—example of crony capitalism in American history. Tens of billions of dollars went to firms controlled or owned by fundraisers, bundlers, and political allies, many of whom—surprise!—are now raising money for Obama again.

So it really doesn’t matter to Obama whether these crony capitalist boondoggles go bankrupt or not; what matters is that he gets a percentage of the billions of dollars of the American people’s money in the form of campaign contributions.

And that’s THE ONLY thing that matters: Obama providing all kinds of self-righteous rhetoric while he racks up more special interest campaign monies than ANY cynical and corrupt politician in the history of the entire human race.

This is a slick weasel who has now held more fundraisers THAN THE PREVIOUS FIVE PRESIDENTS COMBINED.

Barack Obama is without any doubt whatsoever the most evil and wicked man who has ever polluted the White House.

When Obama is not punishing his enemies and rewarding his friends, he is campaigning, campaigning, campaigning.

The Demoniac-in-Chief has not bothered to govern in years.  It has now been ELEVEN HUNDRED days since Obama’s Senate – controlled by his fellow Democrats – have bothered to pass ANY BUDGET AT ALL.  Where the hell is Obama while the party that he leads engages day after day after day after day in such abandonment of any kind of responsibility whatsoever???

What about Obama’s own budgets?  His 2012 budget was voted down – voted down BY EVERY SINGLE DEMOCRAT - to the tune of 97-0.  His 2013 budget was voted down – again by every single DEMOCRAT – to the tune of 414-0.  Just where the hell is Obama while he phones in one demon-possessed budget after another that even his own party unanimously vomits over???

He’s campaigning.  Endlessly campaigning.  Never governing, never leading, never bothering to do anything other than demonize and demagogue and lie and slander.

As of March 27, Obama had attended 191 fundraisers – FAR EXCEEDING ANY PRESIDENT EVER RECORDED IN HISTORY.

God damn America doesn’t need a budget.  Because this nation under Obama is going to hell and you don’t need a budget to burn.

We are watching America – and even the most formerly honorable and important positions in America – begin to drift into what can only be described as psychotic behavior.

The Secret Service scandal in which over twenty top Secret Service agents and Marine security personnel engaged in wildly inappropriate conduct involving some twenty prostitutes in Colombia is no aberration.  Nobody’s minding the shop; and the same attitude that holds that George Bush is responsible for the economy forever no matter how many years Barack Obama has been in control of it has permeated every single layer of government: nobody is responsible for anything in this “God damned” administration.

So, yes, the Secret Service scandal – which exposes behavior and abuses unlike anything this formerly honored branch of service has ever seen in its history – reveals a blatant failure of leadership on the part of Barack Obama.

That scandal almost immediately followed another scandal that is just beyond maddening: as GSA employees had an out-of-control “gone wild” convention that cost taxpayers nearly a million dollars:

WASHINGTON — Potentially problematic and certainly embarrassing video of the General Services Administration’s infamous $820,000 Las Vegas conference has been obtained by The Huffington Post, showing well-dressed employees singing Frank Sinatra, downing margaritas and making light of lavish spending.

Video of the 2010 party, provided by an administration official on Friday, shows GSA employees in colorful tuxedos, putting on magic shows and enjoying mock Vegas-style entertainment — all in the name of team-building.

The footage follows the release of a video clip featuring a GSA employee named Hank Terlaje at the same convention strumming a ukulele and belting out an ode to high-spending office culture. That video, like the new batch, was part of an awards ceremony meant to be light-hearted and satirical, but clearly at odds with the President Barack Obama administration’s message of fiscal belt-tightening. Several GSA officials have already lost their jobs because of the convention.

“These videos reinforce once again the complete lack of judgment exhibited during the 2010 Western Regions Conference,” Greg Mecher, a GSA spokesman, said in a statement to The Huffington Post. “Our agency continues to be appalled by this indefensible behavior, and we are taking every step possible to ensure that nothing like this ever happens again.” [...]

Among the report’s findings, GSA spent $95 per person for a dinner reception at the M Resort Spa and Casino in Henderson, Nev.; $75,000 on a bike-building training exercise (the bikes were later donated to the Boys’ and Girls’ Club); $19 per person for an “American artisanal cheese display;” $7,000 in sushi; $3,200 for mind reader; $3,700 for T-shirts; and more than $2,500 on water bottles. The new videos obtained by HuffPost on Friday afternoon before a holiday weekend provide the first long visual evidence of the excess.

One clip features a red carpet entrance into a conference room gathering, during which GSA officials discuss what designer clothes they are wearing. Acting GSA Administrator Jeff Neely, who reportedly encouraged event organizers to make the conference “over the top,” tells the camera he’s donning all Armani, before urging people to “dispense with the notion that what’s done in Vegas stays in Vegas.” Later, a female employee with a self-described “talent for drinking margaritas” is handed a massive goblet filled with the beverage. Terlaje himself makes a cameo without his ukulele, during which he jokes that the board of directors should get a raise.

Another clip features GSA officials destroying office property in a scene inspired by the movie “Office Space.” The song “Push It To The Limit,” from the movie “Scarface,” blares in the background.

In another video, an “angry clown” — either a GSA employee or a professional hired by the organizers — talks about making work more challenging for other people. “Meetings are good to have in between breaks,” the clown declares. “Government — if you think the problems we create are bad, just wait until you see our solutions.”

Among the other clips, there is a performance by the Green Man group — a variation of the Blue Man troupe — that uses recyclable material for beat-making. Additionally, GSA officials, donning black tuxedos with colored vests, perform their own rendition of “Luck be a Lady.”

There are silly magic tricks and an on-stage contest to see which attendee can blow the most bubbles through hula hoops.

Employees were encouraged to submit videos for a talent show contest, which Terlaje won. Among other entrants was one featuring Gumby on a motorcycle, as employees flashed dollar bills and rapped about the world travel and government pay raises they were getting.

“Not trying to get all touchy-feely, but I have to give props to my man [Acting Regional GSA Administrator] Jeff Neely,” they sing.

“I’m thrilled to be doing this,” Neely says in a separate clip, calling the conference the “culmination of a huge and impressive talent contest.”

The new videos seem likely to further inflame the back-and-forth between the administration and House Oversight Committee Chair Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) over the GSA’s spending. The California Republican has suggested that the White House tried to hide evidence of lavish spending by sitting on the inspector general’s report for 11 months.

The GSA inspector general “briefed the Obama administration 11 months ago on its factual findings of waste and wrongdoing at a lavish Las Vegas convention,” Issa spokesman Frederick Hill, told POLITICO. “Rather than taking immediate action to suspend or dismiss those identified by the IG at this briefing as responsible, the administration instead let them have bonuses. Despite their efforts to manage the story, the administration only took real personnel actions when there were no more options for delay.”

Administration officials have scoffed at Issa’s charge, noting that proper protocols were followed to investigate the conference spending and that, once it came to light, officials who were responsible resigned or were fired.

The full-length video obtained by The Huffington Post.

What did the Obama administration immediately try to do?  Blame Bush.  For an event that took place two full years AFTER BUSH LEFT OFFICE AND WAS GONE.

Nobody in the Obama administration – from the top down – has ever been responsible for ANYTHING.

Former Bush-era GSA administrator sets the record straight to correct the smokescreen of lies from an administration that is beyond pathological in its refusal to accept personal responsibility.  She pointed out:

Doan said the president and his aides aren’t taking ownership of their jobs. “This is very typical of the Obama administration,” she said. “There’s a lot of misdirection and cherry-picking of information that they release to the public. I think you also see the Obama administration circling their wagons because they know this is very damaging. You simply cannot justify the kind of wasteful spending.”

Barack Obama is running for president 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and he can’t be bothered with actually governing or running anything.  You don’t take responsibility when you’re running for president – EVEN IF YOU’VE ACTUALLY BEEN THE DAMN PRESIDENT FOR FOUR FREAKING YEARS.

The Fast and Furious scandal – and this is giving Obama and Holder the benefit of the doubt and not believing the very real possibility that the two men deliberately set out to undermine 2nd Amendment gun rights by literally selling Mexican drug gangs guns so they could demonize American gun sellers and thus demonize the 2nd Amendment – has racked up so many corpses it is positively UNREAL.  Let me simply sum it up: Obama’s people actually put guns into the hands of criminal drug cartels who then used those guns to murder American Border Patrol agents and HUNDREDS of Mexican soldiers, federal agents, police and family members of officials.

As Chuck Norris put it, Obama is smuggling guns to the Mexican drug gangs without any way to track them while demanding that YOUR guns be regulated or just plain taken away.

And if that isn’t sick enough, Barack Obama’s and Eric Holder’s ATF actually PROMOTED the supervisors who were most responsible for the fiasco.  Most likely to keep them quiet.

Congress is on the verge of issuing contempt of Congress proceedings against Obama’s Attorney General, stating:

“For over a year, the Department has issued false denials, given answers intended to misdirect investigators, sought to intimidate witnesses, unlawfully withheld subpoenaed documents, and waited to be confronted with indisputable evidence before acknowledging uncomfortable facts,” it reads. “’Operation Fast and Furious’ outrageous tactics, the Justice Department’s refusal to fully cooperate with the investigation, and efforts to smear and retaliate against whistleblowers have tainted the institutional integrity of the Justice Department.”

They issued a memorandum detailing the charges available here.

And where the hell is Obama?  He’s at one after another after another campaign event.

As we speak, Obama’s State Department has terribly and despicably failed to protect human rights or America’s reputation as a nation that defends those rights in it’s godawful handling of China’s abuse of human rights activist Chen Guangchen.  A BBC headline reads: “Barack Obama SILENT…”

We’re finding out the State Department applied pressure on Chen to leave the US embassy; then they abandoned him when he was in the hospital.  From being safe on sovereign US territory, the human rights activist is now in Chinese custody, future very much uncertain.  And his wife’s and children’s future equally uncertain.

If Obama had actually bothered to do his damn job, it might have prevented him from attending another campaign event and raising more campaign money. And that is the ONLY “crime against humanity” that Obama gives a damn about.

There are so many scandals going on under Obama’s “permanent campaign” that many of them – even really vile ones – just get ignored.  Such as the one with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) with the out-of-control agency inflicting huge fines on fishermen for small infractions and putting the collected monies in a slush fund used for lavish trips and booze-cruise luxury boats.

That is hardly the end of Obama’s constant scandals.  It’s hardly the end of his complete failure to lead.  There are so many examples this would be a 25,000 word article for me to write up half of them.

Obama has taken America to “Greece” territory with our debt exceeding our entire gross national product for the first time.  Obama is foolishly spending $2.52 in debt for every dollar of “growth” to get himself re-elected.

Obama has promised Russia that he’ll abandon American national security interests if they don’t raise any stinks and thus help his re-election campaign.  Meanwhile, his supporters are boasting that Obama will be able to usurp the wealth and freedoms of productive Americans and redistribute them to his supporters without fear in a second term.  But apparently Russia doesn’t trust Obama any more than the American people Obama is willing to betray ought to trust him: yesterday Russia warned that it would preemptively strike American facilities – literally threatening war on America – if the US continued to build a missile shield to protect the US from the Iranian nuclear threat Russia is responsible for.

Meanwhile Israel is on the verge of attacking Iran to prevent the nihilistic jihadist regime from developing nuclear weapons.  Which Iran is on the verge of getting, mind you, because Barack Obama and the Democrat Party has steadfastly refused to do one damn thing to prevent Iran from getting for the last decade.

And where the hell is Obama?  He’s campaigning, campaigning, campaigning.  The man who has attended more fundraisers than the last five presidents combined is trying to attend more fundraisers than the last TEN presidents combined instead.  So don’t expect anything other than a weak response from the likes of him on pretty much anything.

Campaigner-in-Chief Says ‘You’re On Your Own’ To Democrats As He Jets From Fundraiser To Fundraiser

March 5, 2012

Barack Obama has been the greatest campaigner-in-chief in American history.  He has held a hundred fundraisers versus 49 at this same point for George W. Bush.  Mind you, Obama has ALWAYS been better at whoring for his cash stash than any other incumbant president.

But – just as in his personal life - don’t count on Barack Obama to be generous to others:

 W.H. to Dems: Expect no money
By: John Bresnahan
March 5, 2012 04:52 AM EST

President Barack Obama has a bleak message for House and Senate Democrats this year when it comes to campaign cash: You’re on your own.

Democratic congressional leaders, including Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, have privately sought as much as $30 million combined from Obama for America and the Democratic National Committee — a replay of the financial help they received from Obama in 2008 and 2010.

But that’s not going to happen, top Obama aides Jim Messina and David Plouffe told Reid and Pelosi in back-to-back meetings on Capitol Hill on Thursday, according to sources familiar with the high-level talks. It was a stark admission from a presidential campaign once expected to rake in as much as $1 billion of just how closely it is watching its own bottom line.

Messina and Plouffe told the two Hill leaders that there would be no cash transfers to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee from OFA or the DNC, at least not before Election Day, the sources said.

Plouffe is a senior political adviser to the president and served as campaign manager for Obama in 2008, while Messina is Obama’s campaign manager this cycle.

Hill Democrats won’t be seeing much of Obama at their own fundraisers this year, either. Obama has offered to do one money event each for the DCCC and DSCC. OFA officials suggested Vice President Joe Biden do two fundraisers for each campaign committee. Obama will instead send out an email and fundraising letter solicitations for both committees.

Nor, for that matter, have Obama or Biden committed to do events for individual Democratic lawmakers. That’s true even though 23 Democrat-held Senate seats are up for grabs in a competitive battle for control of that chamber. And no fundraisers have been scheduled yet for House and Senate Democrats with Cabinet officials, usually a staple of an election-year calendar for incumbent presidents looking to boost their party’s prospects.

The tightfistedness by the Obama campaign toward Hill Democrats reflects the harsh realities of the 2012 White House fight. Obama, who broke all fundraising records in his historic 2008 run, isn’t going to be the overwhelming financial juggernaut that he was four years ago. Obama still has a big edge in money raised and cash on hand — OFA and the DNC reported nearly $92 million in cash at the end of January after hauling in a combined $250 million last year, according to campaign records — over any Republican challenger.

But that still leaves Obama far short of the $1 billion that many pundits had predicted he would raise this cycle. Messina has railed against such claims for months, as it became a problem for Obama because some donors didn’t think he needed their support. Obama could still raise $700 million to $800 million, Democrats predict, a total that could be eclipsed by the GOP nominee, the Republican National Committee and shadowy pro-GOP super PACs.

The financial caution for the Obama team also reflects the growing power of super PACs, especially for Republicans. The groups — technically unaffiliated with any candidate yet already a huge factor in the GOP presidential contest — are prepared to dump tens of millions, possibly hundreds of millions, into the White House race. So far, Democrats, including Obama’s own super PAC allies, have been unable to match that flood of pro-Republican cash.

For instance, Crossroads, the Karl Rove-linked super PAC and nonprofit, will spend as much as $300 million bolstering the GOP presidential nominee and Republican congressional candidates and incumbents, POLITICO and other news organizations have reported.

In comparison, Priorities USA Action, a pro-Obama super PAC founded by former presidential aides, raised just $59,000 in January after taking in $3 million last year. To counter the super PAC gap, Obama has been forced to embrace such outside groups, dispatching Plouffe and other campaign officials — and potentially Cabinet secretaries — to help bolster its efforts. Priorities USA Action is also coordinating money efforts with super PACs raising money for Hill Democrats.

Those huge sums of GOP money, much of it in the form of secret gifts from wealthy donors, have tilted the presidential campaign in an unprecedented way. In the past, an incumbent president like Obama with a broad base of small-donor support would have a significant financial edge against any challenger, particularly one who went through a long and costly primary season like this year’s eventual GOP nominee will have endured.

Crossroads, though, has already announced it will spend $20 million to pummel Obama and the Democrats this summer, a time when the prospective nominee would normally be focused on refilling his own campaign coffers. And super PACs more closely tied to Romney or one of the GOP presidential hopefuls could quickly shift targets with one mega-check from a big donor.

All of which leads to Obama’s decision to worry first about his campaign war chest, with the fate of Hill Democrats further down his “to do” list.

“Our top priority and focus is to secure the electoral votes necessary to reelect the president,” Messina said in a statement to POLITICO. “There’s no doubt that Democratic campaigns face a challenging new political landscape with special interests giving unlimited amounts to super PACs. We’re committed to doing everything we can to elect a Democratic House and Senate, and we’re having a conversation about the best way to achieve that goal.”

Messina added: “The organization and turnout operation we’re building on the ground in states across the country is unparalleled, and it will help to elect Democratic candidates up and down the ballot.”

OFA officials note that White House officials, Cabinet secretaries and top Obama surrogates — including Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the DNC chairwoman — have done 15 fundraisers for House and Senate Democrats so far this cycle.

They also point out that Obama’s effort to build a mammoth get-out-the-vote operation in key battleground states like Florida will benefit all Democrats on the ticket, not just the president. OFA and the DNC are expected to spend $50 million-plus in the Sunshine State this year, although an OFA spokesman would not comment on how much the campaign has budgeted for that critical state.

And Obama’s improved approval ratings, combined with a stronger economy and suddenly hopeful Senate Democratic map, are buoying party strategists on the Hill. They know, like the White House does, that Reid has no chance of retaining his majority, nor Pelosi a chance of becoming speaker again, if Obama doesn’t win reelection.

Some Democratic insiders caution as well that the Plouffe-Messina line on Thursday may not be the last word on campaign cash.

Officials for both the House and Senate Democratic campaign committees echoed the conciliatory White House message, despite the unhappiness in Democratic ranks over the Obama stance.

“The DCCC’s goal is to win 25 seats, and President Obama’s reelection is critical to our effort. We appreciate everything that OFA is doing to help and look forward to working with them as we each reach our goals this cycle,” said Jennifer Crider, the DCCC’s communications director.

“Keeping Mitch McConnell and the tea party in the minority is motivating Democrats across the country, and that is why Democratic senators and candidates will have the resources to win in November,” said Matt Canter, the DSCC’s spokesman. “We appreciate OFA’s cooperation with our efforts and look forward to even more support from the president’s campaign and the DNC.”

What’s really funny is the progression:

We go from this:

The 2012 presidential election is shaping up to be a multibillion-dollar contest. President Obama’s re-election committee is expected to raise at least $1 billion, and Republicans have high hopes that their nominee will reach the 10-figure level as well.

That’s brand-new territory for presidential candidates. In 2008, Obama raised nearly $746 million. That was double what George W. Bush raised just four years earlier — which itself was double what Bush raised four years before that.

It’s the first time ever that presidential fundraising shot up that fast. And it puts the Obama re-election operation within reach of raising $1 billion: a volume of cash that takes the campaign out of politics-as-usual.

to our present state of the Obama union.

Interestingly, it wasn’t all that long ago that Obama was blaming his poor fundraising on his being so generous to the DNC (that we now know he won’t be giving a dime to):

President Obama’s reelection campaign will bring in a “moderate” amount of money when it reports its fundraising total to the Federal Election Commission in July, a senior campaign adviser said.

The adviser, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said that campaign officials have decided to devote the bulk of their early efforts to fortifying the Democratic National Committee rather than the president’s own reelection campaign, anticipating that DNC will need to spend the money earlier. This decision, they said, accounts for the lower total.

Obama advisers anticipate that the president’s campaign will face questions about whether it is on track to meet internal fundraising targets, which have not been disclosed. Inevitably, Obama’s take will be compared with Republican Mitt Romney’s because Romney is the closest thing the GOP field has to a front-runner. On Monday alone, Romney’s Nevada call-a-thon took in more than $10 million.

Obama raised a record-shattering amount of campaign money in the 2008 cycle–nearly $750 million.

An American Thinker article does an excellent job of both introducing the increasing desperation of the Obama campaign to raise funds and simultaneously points out the sheer hypocrisy of said Obama campaign.

It just strikes me as beyond amazing that the left continues to depict Obama as some transcendent political messiah when he is in fact the worst money-grubbing whore to ever stink up the White House.

Barack Obama The Greedy Crony Capitalist Fundraiser-In-Chief

Obama Outpacing Clinton, Bush on Fundraising Events
by Special Report Posted in: Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, President Obama

President Obama is outpacing his predecessors quickly when it comes to fundraising events. According to CBS, the president’s total for the year is 69 fundraisers. Bill Clinton had 21 at this point in his third year in office, while George W. Bush had 41.

For the official record, Obama is selling influence 41% more than did George W. Bush.

It is beyond amazing that a guy like this is actually out there every day positioning himself as the one who stands above the political system when he has his pig snout deeper into the trough than ANY politician in history.

Obama: ‘This election won’t be as sexy as the first one [when I could demonize the incumbant and make a bunch of empty promises]‘

October 25, 2011

Get out your barf bags.  Because Obama is coming to your town in his Canadian-built bus (as he sends half a billion dollars to Finland to create jobs in Europe) to talk about “jobs.”  And why three years into his presidency he somehow bears no responsibility for the fact that everything he promised has been nothing but a big fat giant lie from hell.

Obama: Country facing economic, political crisis
By JIM KUHNHENN, Associated Press – 10/24/2011
 
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Testing a re-election theme, President Barack Obama is telling donors during a fundraising rich tour of three western states that the country is suffering from an economic crisis and from a political crisis. “People are crying out for action,” he says.

Pointing to elements of his $447 billion jobs plan rejected by Republican lawmakers, Obama said they would likely linger as campaign issues in 2012.

“This is the fight that we’re going to have right now, and I suspect this is the fight that we’re going to have to have over the next year,” Obama told about 240 donors at a fundraising event Monday at the Bellagio hotel and casino in Las Vegas. “The Republicans in Congress and the Republican candidates for president have made their agenda very clear.”

In Los Angeles on Monday evening, Obama mingled with Hollywood’s royalty. At an intimate dinner with top donors in the Hancock Park home of producer James Lassiter, Obama chatted with movie star Will Smith and former Los Angeles Lakers standout Earvin “Magic” Johnson.

“Sometimes I think people forget how much has gotten done,” Obama said, and he urged his supporters to rally once again, at the same time joking, as he often does, that he is older and grayer now. “This election won’t be as sexy as the first one.”

The Las Vegas fundraiser attracted about 240 people who paid from $1,000 to $35,800 toward Obama’s re-election campaign and to the Democratic National Committee. The bigger donors met the president personally.

The dinner at the Lassiter home was cozier, with fewer than 40 donors who paid $35,800 each. Among the sponsors were Troy Carter, the manager of Grammy award winner Lady Gaga. The singer herself was a guest at a fundraiser last month at the Atherton, Calif., home of Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg.

Obama was to raise money at the home of movie stars Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas, an event aimed at Latino donors that was also expected to feature actress Eva Longoria and mayors Antonio Villaraigosa of Los Angeles and Julian Castro of San Antonio.

While in Las Vegas, Obama spelled out a plan to help homeowners refinance their homes even if their home values had dropped dramatically below what they owed on their mortgages. Obama ventured into a working class development in the Las Vegas suburbs that benefitted from a community revitalization program like one he is pushing Congress to approve now.

But the president displayed campaign-style vigor, wading into the neighborhood crowd to shake hands and even lift a baby. His handlers reminded him it was time to leave, but Obama strode to yet another group of residents for one last hand shake, autograph and photograph.

Upon arriving in Los Angeles, Obama headed to a diverse neighborhood near Lassiter’s home south of Hollywood and stopped at Roscoe’s, a chicken restaurant, where he greeted customers and ordered chicken wings for his staff.

Most of his remaining time during this three-day swing through Nevada, California and Colorado is being spent raising money. On Tuesday he will tape an appearance on “The Tonight show with Jay Leno,” his second as president and fourth appearance overall. He will also attend fundraisers in San Francisco and Denver.

Why is the country suffering from a political crisis and an economic crisis three years into the Obama presidency?  Why is it that three years into the Obama’s regime the people are crying out for action?

Obama began running for re-election earlier than anyone before him:

“Yesterday, President Barack Obama announced his plans to run for reelection in 2012, 582 days before Election Day and before most major Republican opponents officially announced that they’d be entering the race. This is the earliest any incumbent president has officially signed up to run again.”

The day that he announced, he himself ended his ability to move things legislatively.  He went into full-time candidate mode and every single thing he is doing is merely another campaign tactic.

To add to that, Obama has done fundraisers and average of once every three days since he announced his re-election bid in early April.  As of October 13, Obama had held 55 fundraisers since April 4.

You add up all his golf, and he isn’t doing much else BUT campaign.  Particularly given the fact that most of the crap the man is doing is nothing but incredibly poorly disguised campaigning (which he’s cynically making taxpayers pay for).  From CNN:

But at times, the event also took on a touch of the political rally Obama’s political opponents said it was.

“I’m not just here to enjoy the nice weather, I’m here to enlist you in a fight,” he said to the cheering Cannon Falls crowd.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Preibus derided the event — the first stop on Obama’s three-state trip — as nothing more than a campaign event disguised as a public one.

“He’s spending taxpayers’ dollars on a bus tour disguised as some kind of economic event for the country when we all know that it’s a campaign event paid for by the taxpayers,” he said.

Earlier, the Republican National Committee issued a “briefing book” on the trip made to resemble one produced by the administration in which it mockingly described the trip as “a totally non-political taxpayer-funded administration event that just happens to criss-cross several battleground states critical to the president’s reelection.”

Obama continues to demonize Republicans for obstructing his idiotic jobs bill – which is EXACTLY LIKE HIS COMPLETELY FAILED STIMULUS IN EVERYTHING BUT HIS DISINGENUOUS NAME FOR IT - even though IT WAS DEMOCRATS IN CONTROL OF THE SENATE who obstructed Obama’s jobs bill and wouldn’t let it come up for a vote.  Because truth hurts Obama; he has to live in a world of lies and lying demagoguery and sell that world of lies.

Add to that the fact that this Marxist-in-Chief has been out hypocritically playing communist class warfare in public even as he has been sucking up to the filthy rich – oh, about every three days or so – in private.

Let’s just call Obama what he is: totally dishonest (or read what Steve Wynn had to say here).

If You Support Obama, Please Quit Driving, Traveling, Or Using Most Household Products

June 4, 2010

Barack Obama took more money from British Petroleum than any politician over a twenty year period.  In spite of the fact that he had only been in national politics for less than three years.  Barack Obama’s administration approved the project and granted the permit for the doomed BP drilling site.  Barack Obama’s administration helped quash environmental problems and issued an environmental waiver to BP at said doomed site only days before the disaster.  Barack Obama failed to take the disaster seriously and delayed serious action for weeks, fiddling with fundraisers, golf outings, and vacations while the Gulf went to hell.  The Obama administration has continued to delay and waste time pursuing the dotting of the i’s and the crossing of the t’s regarding mindless bureaucratic inanities.

Obama is rather like Oliver Hardy blaming British Petroleum like it was Stan Laurel: “Well, that’s another fine mess you’ve gotten me into!”  But the fact is that Obama was up to his eyeballs in this mess from the inception.

One example of the time-wasting bureaucratic idiocy that is so characteristic of shockingly poor leadership was the sand berms that Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal demanded.  Jindal spent weeks urging the federal government to construct sand berms that would protect the coastland and the vital marshes from oil seepage, but ran into one federal government delay after another.  He wanted some two dozen temporary berms, but the federal government dithered and then dithered some more.  Eventually the feds said they would allow six such berms.  And would only pay for one.  And that they wouldn’t allow any construction until after an environmental impact study.  While lethal oil began to contaminate the coastlands and marshes.

“It is clear the resources needed to protect our coast are still not here,” Gov. Jindal said.  “Oil sits and waits for cleanup, and every day that it waits for cleanup more of our marsh dies.”

44 days after the disaster, Obama graciously allowed Louisiana to construct six berms.  You know, the-build-a-barn-after-the-horses-left thing.

Jon Stewart absolutely skewered Obama’s incompetence by playing videos in which Obama vows “not to rest” until he solves the BP disaster, intermixed with video footage of all the useless garbage he’s been up to.

Jon Stewart link 1

Jon Stewart link 2

And then there’s the “never let a good crisis go to waste” thing.  Obama has handled this crisis more as a political problem than a national disaster from the outset.  And in Barack Obama’s brand of politics, you demagogue and you pander to leftist special interests.  And thus:

Obama: US must end its dependence on fossil fuels
3:16 PM on 06/02/2010
JULIE PACE, Associated Press

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Seizing on a disastrous oil spill to advance a cause, President Barack Obama on Wednesday called on Congress to roll back billions of dollars in tax breaks for oil and pass a clean-energy bill that he says would help the nation end its dependence on fossil fuels.

Obama predicted that he would find the political support for legislation that would dramatically alter the way Americans fuel their homes and cars, including placing a price on carbon pollution, even though such legislation is politically divisive and remains bogged in the Senate.

“The votes may not be there right now, but I intend to find them in the coming months,” Obama told an audience at Carnegie Mellon University. “I will continue to make the case for a clean energy future wherever and whenever I can, and I will work with anyone to get this done. And we will get it done.”

Obama said the country’s continuing dependence on fossil fuels “will jeopardize our national security, it will smother our planet and will continue to put our economy and our environment at risk.” [...]

“The time has come, once and for all, for this nation to fully embrace a clean energy future,” the president said. [...]

Obama also used the speech to lash out at Republicans with partisan rhetoric, saying they have mostly “sat on the sidelines and shouted from the bleachers” as he’s tried to restore the economy.

And thus Obama, who couldn’t be more responsible for this disaster without being the guy who blew up the platform, resorts to his constant stream of demagogic bullcrap.  It’s those Republicans who are responsible, you know: “The fact that I took all that BP campaign money, and then paid BP back by securing environmental waivers, and then paid BP back some more by letting BP broadcast the message that everything was under control and it was just a minor technical problem, nothing to worry about, is beside the point.  Republicans are evil, and they are to blame for everything.”

Mind you, Obama doesn’t have anything even close to a consistent energy position; to have that, he’d have to be an actual leader rather than a mere politically opportunistic demagogue.  Thus only a couple of months ago Obama was the one who ENDED the ban on offshore drilling (hint: not Bush):

From NPR, March 31, 2010:

President Obama announced the end of a decades-old ban on oil and gas drilling along much of the U.S. Atlantic coast and northern Alaska on Wednesday, as part of an effort to reduce foreign imports and win support for an energy and climate bill.

Then we had the Gulf of Mexico disaster, and suddenly “the end of a decades-old ban” suddenly became a brand new ban.  And the politician who accepted more BP-bribe money than anybody is suddenly shooting out demagoguery onto the airwaves the way that damn hole keeps shooting out oil into the ocean.

It’s not like Obama is an actual leader who needs a consistent policy; rather, he’s a pandering constantly-in-campaign-mode weasel who will say or do anything to gain a momentary political advantage.

And, of course, Obama also demonized oil companies.  Not just British Petroleum, the one actually responsible for paying Obama all those campaign contributions and creating the disaster, but ALL oil companies.  Because oil is as evil as Republicans.  And Democrats want to stop oil at all costs.

Forget the fact that this disaster was caused by Democrats who kept pushing oil companies further and further away from shore, into more and more and more dangerous conditions, until a disaster was inevitable.  Every single Democrat who has helped stopped oil drilling on the coastal shelf or – better yet, on our land – is partly to blame for this disaster.

Unless you don’t think we need oil.

But if you don’t think we need oil, the stop the hell using it.

Let me just put it this way: if you support Barack Obama, quit traveling.  Do not drive your car, do not take the bus, do not fly, do not get on a boat.  Because it’s finally time that you were consistent: ending oil means no oil.  So don’t use it.

Go to this site and make sure you don’t use any of the household products that contain oil, too.

My advice to you Democrats is just to move out of your house with all those evil oil products and live in a hole.  Don’t use a shovel to dig your hole – because it was made using oil – just scratch at the dirt with your fingernails.

Turn off your computer, too.  Because it’s got oil products, too.

And just climb in that damn hole and stay there.

Heck, maybe we could plug the hole in the Gulf with Democrats and have the best of all possible worlds.
