Who Painted A ‘Dark’ Picture Of Who??? The Vile Hypocrisy Of Obama And Hillary and the REAL Party Of Darkness Never Ceases To Astound Me

July 29, 2016

I recently wrote a couple of articles noting two things: the media fixation with everything that could possibly be depicted as going wrong with the Republican National Convention (such as protests outside and the possibility of violence due to the fact that Cleveland actually obeys the 2nd Amendment and allows open-carry of firearms) and the Obama and Hillary outcries over the “dark” picture of America that they continuously alleged that Trump paints.

An unrelated while simultaneously VERY related example of this vicious bias is the media and Democrat Party attack on Trump when he sarcastically asked for Russia’s help in finding the thirty-plus thousand emails that Hillary illegally purged from her secret, unauthorized server that no American and even no FBI agents looking into the case was allowed to see.  There was so much media anger at Trump – because after all the word “sarcasm” does not exist as a word or a concept and so Trump was very clearly actually saying Russia should take over our country; because after all every American would clearly rather be lied to by Obama and Hillary than hear the TRUTH from Russia – and no mention of all of the fact that the Clinton campaign had just officially implicitly admitted that Hillary had been lying all along when she dishonestly claimed that those 30-plus thousand emails were “personal” and contained her yoga routines rather than having any “national security” information.

Let’s take one second to examine the REAL culprits responsible for this hack of the DNC.  First of all, think of the incredibly incompetent Obama administration that has for the last six years patently failed and refused to do anything about WikiLeaks and Julian Assange.  Just as they didn’t do anything about Pvt. Manning and the leaks that freak revealed.  Obama has done NOTHING to stop this and now his own chickens have come home to roost, to quote his infamous reverend who used that phrase to demonize America.

But then consider Hillary’s role in this.  She was warned BACK IN MARCH that the DNC and her OWN campaign computers were under hack attack.  And consider her incredibly pathetic and incompetent response to what she now claims was so terribly dangerous:

The FBI warned the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign in March that its computers had been the object of a foreign-government cyberattack, Yahoo News reported Thursday evening.

However, according to Yahoo News, when the FBI requested that the Clinton team turn over email logs and staff addresses, the campaign’s lawyers refused.

At the time, Mrs. Clinton was being investigated by the FBI for possible criminal offenses in her setting up and using a private email server to conduct government business and handle classified information.

So. amazingly, even though there is no factual question whatsoever that both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are COMPLETELY AND ENTIRELY RESPONSIBLE for this penetration of the Democrat Party, who is to blame?  Donald Trump, because he made an offhand sarcastic remark at a press conference AFTER THE DAMN FACT.

You simply have to MARVEL at these liars and how utterly craven and dishonest and dishonorable they are.  They make cockroaches look like superior moral life forms.

But let’s stay on track and talk about the “darkness” that Obama, that Hillary and that the leftist propaganda mill masquerading as the media tried to gin up about Trump and the RNC.

As I documented, the black, Democrat chief of police in Cleveland loudly pointed out how miserable the fascist media acted in their desire to get that propaganda angle that would create a negative image of the RNC: Chief Calvin Williams said of the mainstream media frenzy over the most minimal protests:

“Our jobs’ a lot more difficult, yes, yes.  Sorry, I mean, most of the time when we get there, we have 20 protestors; we probably have 80 people from the media there.  And we’re tyring to separate out and get a handle on what’s going on, and we have more media than protestors.”

There were twenty protesters at the RNC in Cleveland.  There were THOUSANDS at the DNC.  But whose counting?  Not the damn media, that’s for sure.

Propagandists masquerading as “journalists” also wrote terrifying articles about the fact that in Cleveland people had the right to open carry of firearms.  Which unless Democrats are simply flat-out WRONG about EVERYTHING they believe was going to lead to a bloodbath of horrific proportions.

Not one shooting.  Not ONE.  Because the people Democrats want to disarm are law-abiding, good people.  Because frankly the only people Democrats want with guns are illegal immigrant criminals and the Obama Gestapo that Democrats want to create after their Black Lives Matter wing generates enough hate toward our local and state police that a national Gestapo-style police force becomes the only alternative.  Because you shouldn’t have a right to your own police force any more than you should have a right to your own guns.

I remember hearing that Wednesday night, there were 156 hateful remarks generated at Donald Trump.  And given that Hillary’s Thursday night speech amounted to one long, continuous hate screed against Trump, it’s hard to imagine she didn’t smash that record all by herself.

But what did Obama say during the Republican National Convention???

President Barack Obama on Friday strongly denounced the dark and dire terms in which Donald Trump and the Republican Party described the condition of the United States after nearly eight years of his presidency.

While remarking that he did not watch the convention, the president commented on reading “some of what was said and the one thing that I think is important to recognize is this idea that America is somehow on the verge of collapse, this vision of violence and chaos everywhere, doesn’t really jibe with the experience of most people.”

“I hope people, the next morning, walked outside and birds were chirping and the sun was out and this afternoon, people will be, you know, watching their kids play on sports teams and go to the swimming pool and folks are going to work and getting ready for the weekend,” Obama said, speaking alongside Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto during a joint news conference. “And in particular, I think it is important, just to be absolutely clear here, that some of the fears that were expressed throughout the week just don’t jibe with the facts.”

Obama has shown a greater willingness to directly attack Trump, and has done so with gusto.

Trump was just so dark and so negative and so evil in his darkness and negativity.  And how could anyone be so dark and negative about America???  Isn’t America the greatest country on earth???

Not according to your own administration’s previous rhetoric in which you said that America was only one nation among many rather than a nation that was unique and special and had a right to act as such.  But let me stick to that narrative that painting a dark picture is bad.

Let me simply ask you one question: what picture did Obama and Hillary paint of America under a Trump administration???  Is anyone fool enough to think it was anything other than the most hateful, bitter, ugly and nightmarish thing imaginable???

What do you think about Obama directly comparing Donald Trump to ISIS in his DNC speech???

Is that dark and ugly enough for you???

The Democrats were rabid and savage in their hatred of Donald Trump.

After demonizing Trump and Republicans for their “dark” portrayal of America, they proceeded to paint the ugliest and darkest imaginable picture of an America under Donald Trump.

But wait a minute; ISN’T THIS AMERICA???  ISN’T AMERICA THE GREATEST COUNTRY ON EARTH???

Hillary Clinton called Donald Trump a “dictator.”

It’s a remarkable thing how Donald Trump was this horrible, “dark” man and his RNC was this terrifyingly vicious entity  for displaying a tiny fraction of the viciousness that Hillary and her convention displayed.

Hillary of Trump:

He wants us to fear the future and fear each other.

But what the hell do YOU want to do, you wicked witch???  You want nothing other than to incite fear and hatred of the future under Donald Trump, and you want to create a climate of hate – just like the climate that has resulted in Democrats assassinating police officers all over America because, after all, they are a racist death squad intentionally murdering innocent black people, aren’t they???

Another police officer was gunned down to death just today.

Because “Black Lives Matter.”

Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and Democrats have pitted people against their police.  It’s like Vietnam and the damned Viet Cong now, where police have no idea who the damn enemy is.

Please don’t forget that the people who vote for Donald Trump – last time I checked – are “AMERICANS.”  And Hillary Clinton is outright telling us that we’re these evil people who want to create a terrifying future.  And no, we don’t.

But let’s consider which side has created a terrifying damn PRESENT:

By the time Obama leaves office, terrorism will have skyrocketed by 1,900 percent.  That is what I call a terrifying present.  And pardon me for saying so, but after terrorism has exploded by SIX THOUSAND PERCENT because we elected Hillary Clinton who continued to follow Obama’s policies, THAT will be a truly terrifying future.

If you don’t believe me, the Democrats were screaming, “No more war!” over and over again over the speeches of Leon Panetta, of a four-star general, of a war hero.  Just as they without any honor and without any decency interrupted moments of silence for police officers who their own kind had assassinated.  Because you mark my words, Democrats WILL NOT keep this country safe and do what needs to be done.

A vote for Hillary Clinton is a vote for lawlessness both here and abroad.  And that long, long embrace as Obama embraced his third term is all you need to know to know that as a FACT.

Meanwhile, our economy is a joke with wallpaper of a low unemployment rate masking the fact that our labor participation rate – the percentage of working-age Americans who actually have a JOB – is basically lower than it has ever been in the modern era.  One hundred Million working-age Americans AREN’T working.

The ONLY thing our businesses are investing in is cost cutting.  Because Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and their Democrat Party have attacked job creators and the only way our job creators can survive is to create as few new jobs as possible.

Meanwhile, the Democrats demand that we keep bringing in tens of millions of more unskilled laborers by way of illegal immigration to a labor market already glutted with unskilled laborers.  Which if the LAW of supply and demand is true guarantees that wages can never realistically go up.  The law of supply and demand states that the more supply you have of something, the lower the value of that thing and the lower the demand for it.  Which is why wages have gone DOWN under Obama.

But only Obama and Hillary have a right to paint a “dark future”???

No.  If you take off the rose-colored glasses of Obama’s and Hillary’s big-government socialism, it’s an incredibly dark present which will lead to an unimaginably dark future if we continue in the trajectory of Obama-Clinton.

The dishonesty and hypocrisy of these people never ceases to stun me and offend me.

China Just About To Overtake God Damn America As #1 Economy Due To Obama’s Failed Policies

May 1, 2014

Here’s an interesting fact: who is more “socialist”: Barack Obama’s God Damn America Or the (communist) People’s Republic of China?

The really scary thing is that it’s not even close: Barack Obama is FAR more communist than anyone in China.

Consider that your tax rate in the People’s Republic of China is 25% vs. your top federal tax rate in God Damn America of 39%.  And those Chinese don’t pay the state taxes that we also have to pay over here in good ole God Damn America.

If you want to understand why China owns us AND gets to eat our lunch at the same time, realize that the United States has THE highest corporate tax rate on planet earth.  AND a president who keeps saying the highest on earth still isn’t high enough.

I’ve watched dozens of Democrats who argue for higher taxes get asked the question, “How much should the rate be?”   And not ONE of them has ever answered.  The reason being THEY WILL NEVER GRAB ENOUGH OF OTHER PEOPLE’S MONEY OR ENOUGH POWER TO DOMINATE OTHER PEOPLE’S LIVES.

The last time this measure was taken when George W. Bush was still president, China had well under HALF (43%) the economy of America.  But under Barack Obama and under Barack Obama’s “God damn America” policies, we have tanked so fast it gives me vertigo to think about it:

China Set to Overtake U.S. as Biggest Economy in PPP Measure
By Bloomberg News
April 30, 2014 4:32 PM EDT   69 Comments

China is poised to overtake the U.S. as the world’s biggest economy earlier than expected, possibly as soon as this year, using calculations that take purchasing power into account.

China’s economy was 87 percent of the size of the U.S. in 2011, based on so-called purchasing power parity, the International Comparison Program said in a statement yesterday in Washington. The program, which involves organizations including the World Bank and United Nations, had put the figure at 43 percent in 2005.

The latest tally adds to the debate on how the world’s top two economic powers are progressing. Projecting growth rates from 2011 onwards suggests China’s size when measured in PPP may surpass the U.S. in 2014, which would be years earlier than many economists had previously estimated, according to Arvind Subramanian of the Peterson Institute for International Economics.

“There’s a symbolic element to this, to China overtaking the U.S., and that seems to be happening,” said Subramanian, a senior fellow at the Washington-based Peterson Institute. The latest data “plays to the idea that China is very big and getting bigger. It’s not to be underestimated.”

In a book published in September 2011, Subramanian estimated China became the world’s largest economy in 2010. While this was too early, the International Monetary Fund’s projections in its World Economic Outlook show China will move to the top in 2019, which is too late, he said today.

U.S. Share

The U.S. share of global GDP was 17.1 percent in 2011, while China was 14.9 percent, according to the ICP figures based on purchasing power parity, which seeks to compare how far money goes in each country. PPP calculates gross domestic product using exchange rates that adjust for price differences of the same goods between nations.

Yet China was well behind the U.S. based on another comparison, which looks at GDP in U.S. dollars at market exchange rates. By that approach, the U.S. share of 22.1 percent was more than double that of China’s 10.4 percent, the ICP data show.

JPMorgan Chase & Co. prefers to use market exchange rates for its “hard-nosed business cycle analysis,” said David Hensley, the bank’s director of global economic coordination in New York. That approach “gives a better sense of the resources that a country has command over.”

While JPMorgan keeps an eye on PPP comparisons as a secondary measure, it’s a hypothetical calculation which assumes one price level across all countries, Hensley said.

Different World

“That’s not the world we live in,” said Hensley. In addition to problems in measuring PPP, it “inflates the relative size and importance and command over resources that countries like China, India, Brazil or Russia have. That can create mistakes in judgment if you’re not careful.”

Hensley estimates that based on market exchange rates, the U.S. will stay in the lead until about 2024, when China crosses over as the world’s biggest economy, he said.

Changes in methodology contributed to the speed of China’s rise, according to the ICP report. Using market rates, U.S. gross domestic product was $16.2 trillion in 2012, compared with China’s $8.2 trillion. India vaulted into third place, ahead of Japan, the latest ICP figures also show.

This is what we voted for and this is what we deserve.

According to the Bible, America either will not exist or will be so weak that it will not matter one scintilla in the last days.

And while the fascist media keeps distracting us with one bright and shiny object after another, America is NOTHING like what it was just a few years ago as Obama has gutted America giant chunk by giant chunk.

The ONLY thing that makes the United States matter today – now that Obama has dismantled America’s military and pissed away our national security prestige – is the fact that since the end of World War II, the United States has served as the global reserve currency (with all commodities being bought and sold in U.S. dollars).

I have a vision of how that is going to change: now that Obama has gutted the American military and literally made America weaker than at any time since BEFORE our enemies decided to attack us to begin World War II, and now that Obama has so pissed away American credibility with his never mind “red lines” and his feckless response to Russian aggression that eerily parallels Hitler’s aggression in Europe, why does the United States even matter?

The major economies known as the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) have all made it clear that they want to dump the US as the global reserve currency (see also here).  We have lost more than enough influence both strategically, militarily, economically and morally under Obama that it is only a matter of time before we don’t have enough people who need us relative to the growing list of countries that hate us.  Note that Obama has done EVERYTHING to cut the list of the former countries and ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to reduce the number of the latter.  In every region in the world, we are very clearly in worst shape than we were in when we cursed ourselves by electing Obama.  We have distanced ourselves from our former friends and emboldened and increased our current enemies.

One day, soon, as a result of our rapid decline under Obama, the world is going to cut its losses and dump the United States as the reserve currency.  We are facing a world in which we have too few friends, too many enemies, a growing list of enemies who are gaining power over us, and not enough influence to change a damn thing.  Russia and China and India will lead the effort to dump the dollar and we won’t be able to stop it.  And we will implode as no society in the history of planet earth has EVER imploded.  Because when you have a house of cards built on more than $225 trillion dollars of debt, you are going to fall HARD when you fall.

The worst of the Great Depression will seem like a pleasant stroll along a sunny beach compared to what’s in store for God damn America.

This is a nation that voted to perish.  And it is going to get – as God damn America – exactly what it voted for.

 

Look Around At The Brave New World Obama Has Led Us Into

September 4, 2013

I wrote this article – which cited another prophetic article – way back in 2008.  Let’s consider it again and see if we on the right were right, indeed:

Left Decries America, Ignore Global Evil Of Leftist Regimes

There are more slaves today than at any time in history. Yet blacks in America ignore that tragic reality and instead fiercely decry this country over its part in an institution that was ended – at great expense to whites – nearly 150 years ago. And even though it is Islam and Muslim countries that are the greatest perpetrators of black slavery on the planet, it is fashionable today to be black and Muslim. Barack Obama’s former pastor gave all kinds of accolades to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakan, and Obama himself attended Farrakan’s so-called “Million Man March.”

The people who so stridently blamed America for attacking Iraq stand silently – or even worse yet, actually defend – the Russian attack of Georgia.

These are just a couple of examples of the leftists in America and the world who routinely demonize the United States while pointedly turning their backs on shocking acts of evil being perpetrated by leftist regimes around the world.

As writer Victor Davis Hanson points out, it is forgotten that America is the model, not the villain. And when the United States wearies of the constant attacks and ceases to stand up for freedom in the world, you will see a reawakening of evil such as the world hasn’t witnessed since the 1930s.

I came across this article by Hanson. It deserves a wide reading:

August 19, 2008 Brave Old World by Victor Davis Hanson Tribune Media Services

Russia invades Georgia. China jails dissidents. China and India pollute at levels previously unimaginable. Gulf monarchies make trillions from jacked-up oil prices. Islamic terrorists keep car bombing. Meanwhile, Europe offers moral lectures, while Japan and South Korea shrug and watch — all in a globalized world that tunes into the Olympics each night from Beijing.

“Citizens of the world” were supposed to share, in relative harmony, our new “Planet Earth,” which was to have followed from an interconnected system of free trade, instantaneous electronic communications, civilized diplomacy and shared consumer capitalism.

But was that ever quite true?

In reality, to the extent globalism worked, it followed from three unspoken assumptions:

First, the U.S. economy would keep importing goods from abroad to drive international economic growth.

Second, the U.S. military would keep the sea-lanes open, and trade and travel protected. After the past destruction of fascism and global communism, the Americans, as global sheriff, would continue to deal with the occasional menace like a Muammar al-Gaddafi, Slobodan Milosevic, Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, Kim Jong-il or the Taliban.

Third, America would ignore ankle-biting allies and remain engaged with the world — like a good, nurturing mom who at times must put up with the petulance of dependent teenagers.

But there have been a number of indications recently that globalization may soon lose its American parent, who is tiring, both materially and psychologically.

The United States may be the most free, stable and meritocratic nation in the world, but its resources and patience are not unlimited. Currently, it pays more than a half trillion dollars per year to import $115-a-barrel oil that is often pumped at a cost of about $5.

The Chinese, Japanese and Europeans hold trillions of dollars in U.S. bonds — the result of massive trade deficits. The American dollar is at historic lows. We are piling up staggering national debt. Over 12 million live here illegally and freely transfer more than $50 billion annually to Mexico and Latin America.

Our military, after deposing Milosevic, the Taliban and Saddam, is tired. And Americans are increasingly becoming more sensitive to the cheap criticism of global moralists.

But as the United States turns ever so slightly inward, the new globalized world will revert to a far poorer — and more dangerous — place.

Liberals like presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama speak out against new free trade agreements and want existing accords like NAFTA readjusted. More and more Americans are furious at the costs of illegal immigration — and are moving to stop it. The foreign remittances that help prop up Mexico and Latin America are threatened by any change in America’s immigration attitude.

Meanwhile, the hypocrisy becomes harder to take. After all, it is easy for self-appointed global moralists to complain that terrorists don’t enjoy Miranda rights at Guantanamo, but it would be hard to do much about the Russian military invading Georgia’s democracy and bombing its cities.

Al Gore crisscrosses the country, pontificating about Americans’ carbon footprints. But he could do far better to fly to China to convince them not to open 500 new coal-burning power plants.

It has been chic to chant “No blood for oil” about Iraq’s petroleum — petroleum that, in fact, is now administered by a constitutional republic. But such sloganeering would be better directed at China’s sweetheart oil deals with Sudan that enable the mass murdering in Darfur.

Due to climbing prices and high government taxes, gasoline consumption is declining in the West, but its use is rising in other places, where it is either untaxed or subsidized.

So, what a richer but more critical world has forgotten is that in large part America was the model, not the villain — and that postwar globalization was always a form of engaged Americanization that enriched and protected billions.

Yet globalization, in all its manifestations, will run out of steam the moment we tire of fueling it, as the world returns instead to the mindset of the 1930s — with protectionist tariffs; weak, disarmed democracies; an isolationist America; predatory dictatorships; and a demoralized gloom-and-doom Western elite.

If America adopts the protectionist trade policies of Japan or China, global profits plummet. If our armed forces follow the European lead of demilitarization and inaction, rogue states advance. If we were to treat the environment as do China and India, the world would become quickly a lost cause.

If we flee Iraq and call off the war on terror, Islamic jihadists will regroup, not disband. And when the Russians attack the next democracy, they won’t listen to the United Nations, the European Union or Michael Moore.

Brace yourself — we may be on our way back to an old world, where the strong do as they will, and the weak suffer as they must.

Keep in mind that Obama became president by agreeing with our enemies and demonizing George W. Bush for projecting American power and influence.  He came to office swearing he would undo the sweeping U.S. intelligence capabilities and he – unlike Bush – would get authority from the United Nations rather than engage in unilateral actions.  He came into office as the poster boy for everything that Victor Davis Hanson described as the evil that would result from America being weakened and deposed as the leader of the world.

And where do things stand now in this the fifth year of Obama?

120,000 people murdered like dogs in Syria.  The blatant use – in fact the blatant use FOURTEEN TIMES – of wmd by that regime.  The “Arab Spring” that Obama took credit for (and please see my piece here) turned into a bloody disastrous hellhole.  And Obama helped create that terrible disaster by 1) undermining U.S. ally Mubarak in Egypt by training and funding “community activist” rebel leaders and 2) so abusing the U.S. dollar that the countries that rose up in the euphemistically named “Arab Spring” – whose currencies were backed by the U.S. dollar and were therefore vulnerable to Obama’s fraud and failure – broke out in what amounted to FOOD RIOTS.

6.5 MILLION people have fled as refugees from this liberal-titled and hailed “Arab Spring” that Obama bequeathed the world.

As I’ve pointed out, the whole damn world is erupting under Obama’s failed regime.  He has emboldened our enemies as no American president EVER has and he has in the same disastrous manner alienated all of our friends.  Such that George W. Bush was able to assemble a coalition of 48 countries who were willing to follow American leadership and put boots on the damn ground while Barack Obama can’t even find one friend in all the world to lob a few cruise missiles into Syria.

I’d say check, check, check and check some more.

As for Syria and Obama’s suddenly feeling his testicles, let’s point out the obvious fact: if Zero hadn’t stupidly drawn his “red line,” does anybody seriously think that Obama would have been so urgently pleading with the world to please bail out his failed credibility by demanding a military action against Syria???

Combine that global disgrace with the fact that Obama has singlehandedly spent more money and added more trillions of dollars to our debt that will require becoming debt slaves to our enemies (that’s YOU, China) than every single president up to George W. Bush COMBINED.  It is difficult to answer the question whether Obama has been a bigger disaster in foreign policy or domestic policy because he has been an abject disaster in both and because each contributes to the disaster of the other.  Obama has “fundamentally transformed America” into a “new normal” of high real unemployment, low growth and no opportunity.  Obama has destroyed millions of jobs such that the labor participation rate is the worst since before Reagan came along to bring America back to power after Carter nearly destroyed her.  Only this time, American will very likely never rise again after this disgrace of a presidency takes its toll.  Obama has “fundamentally transformed America,” and that means his “new normal.”

The Obama administration has demolished American intelligence by being the worst regime in the history of the nation with its constant leaks that benefitted Obama (and see here) and that Obama incompetently failed to prevent.

At the same time that Obama has made American national security massively weaker, he has expanded the role of the fascist State in a manner we’ve rarely ever seen in American history.

We are not merely a nation in decline; we are a nation in stunning decline.

American leadership and American prestige has been annihilated under this failed presidency.  And when the world rises up in chaos and violence – just as Victor Davis Hanson predicted – please remember to hold Barack Obama personally responsible.

Is America A Fair And Decent Place? Americans Say Yes, Obama Says America Is Unfair And Discriminatory (And How ‘American’ IS That?)

March 22, 2012

Here are the results of a new survey documenting just how far from the American people our Marxist-in-Chief truly is:

64% Say U.S. Society is Fair and Decent
Tuesday, March 20, 2012

A sizable majority of voters continues to feel that the United States is generally a fair and decent place, but the number who think President Obama disagrees with them is at its highest level since late 2010.
 
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 64% of Likely U.S. Voters agree that American society is generally fair and decent. One-in-four voters (26%) disagrees and says society in this country is unfair and discriminatory. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
 
The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on March 11-12, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Fieldwork for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

Rasmussen also reports that 46% of voters think obama views america as unfair and discriminatory:

What we are getting in America is the fruits of a man who spent over twenty years of his life listening to a “reverend” who said things like, “No, no, no!  NOT God bless America!  God DAMN America!”

International Officials Declare Greek ‘Credit Event’ (Means Greece Just Defaulted On Debt)

March 10, 2012

Couple of interesting stories about Greece and the constant charade and the continual coverup of fiscal reality.  First there was this one:

UPDATE: Journalist Stands By Story That ISDA Has Declared A Greek Bond Credit Event
Simone Foxman|Mar. 9, 2012, 1:55 PM

Derivatives Intelligence (part of Institutional Investor) reportsthat the International Swaps and Derivatives Association has determined that Greece has triggered a credit event as part of its debt restructuring.

This would provoke credit default swaps—insurance contracts on Greek bonds issued under Greek law—to be paid out.

But we don’t know why they have this and nobody else does, and we can’t confirm. Therefore, we have certain misgivings about the veracity of this report. While everyone expects that this will be the outcome, the report is not currently out.

ISDA’s committee met today to discuss the issue, and said it would issue a statement on whether or not a credit event had occurred once Greece formally activated the collective action clauses it recently inserted into its Greek debt issuances.

Consensus is that activating the CACs will indeed provoke a credit event, however analysts have been waiting all day for a decision to be published here, to no avail (yet).

Now why on earth would this journalist have to “stand by his story”?  Because a lot of people don’t want other people to know the reality about the situation resulting in Greece living off of borrowed money.

The next obvious question is “what is a credit event”?

From Wikipedia: A credit event is the financial term used to describe either: A general default eventrelated to a legal entity’s previously agreed financial obligation. In this case, a legal entity fails to meet its obligation on any significant financial transaction (coupon on a bond it issued or interest rate payment on a swap for example). The marketplace will recognize this as an event related to the legal entity’s credit worthiness. A financial event related to a legal entity which triggers specific protection provided by a credit derivative (credit default swap, credit default swap index, credit default swap index tranche, etc.) The events triggering a credit derivative are defined in a bilateral swap confirmation which is a transactional document that typically refers to an ISDA master agreement previously executed between the two swap counterparties. There are several standard credit events which are typically referred to in credit derivative transactions: Bankruptcy Failure to Pay Restructuring Repudiation Moratorium Obligation Acceleration Obligation Default

So now Reuters is reporting:

ISDA declares Greek credit event, CDS payments triggered
By Daniel Bases
NEW YORK | Fri Mar 9, 2012 3:39pm EST

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Greece triggered the payment on default insurance contracts by using legislation that forces losses on all private creditors, the International Swaps and Derivatives Association said on Friday.

The decision by the EMEA Determinations Committee to declare a so-called credit event was unanimous, ISDA said in a statement.

Markets showed little reaction to the widely expected decision. The euro edged lower against the U.S. dollar while U.S. Treasury prices saw losses pared after the ISDA announcement.

The ISDA said the use of “collective action clauses (CACs) to amend the terms of Greek law governed bonds issued by The Hellenic Republic such that the right of all holders of the Affected Bonds to receive payments has been reduced.”

The “credit event” ruling means a maximum of $3.16 billion of net outstanding Greek credit default swap contracts could be paid out, though the actual amount is likely to be lower because bondholders are not losing all of their original investment.

ISDA said the auction will be held to determining the actual payout amounts on March 19.

Greece said it would use the newly passed legislation that included the CACs to force private creditors into a bond swap.

This follows creditors’ voluntary tendering of 85.8 percent of the 177 billion euros ($232.22 billion) in bonds regulated by Greek law. The use of CACs should boost participation to an estimated 95.7 percent.

($1=0.7622 Euro)

Now if you’re one of the fools who believe the economy is picking up and everything is going to be just wonderful going forward, BUY GREEK DEBT and put your fool money where your fool mouth is.

We have been hearing a load of lies on Greece and its catastrophic plunge into socialism – which Obama is replicating in America as we speak – for over a year now.  We get terrible news, then we get a ton of whitewash and a meaningless “agreement” of some kind and a bunch of lies about what the “agreement” means.  And that is followed by such a crisis that there’s another report with terrible news, followed by yet another ton of whitewash and another meaningless “agreement” and another bunch of lies about what that “agreement” means.  And so on and so on.  And maybe lemmings aren’t crazy enough to follow each other off a cliff and then plunge to their deaths, but humans sure as hell are.

Greece is going down in flames.

The only meaningful question is whether the next country to follow in Greece’s Dodo bird footsteps will be Spain, or Portugal, or Cyprus, or Hungary, or Belarus, or Ireland … or America.

One thing is certain: our time is coming.  And when it comes you’ll wish it was a ton of bricks falling on your head instead.

Vote for Obama.  Vote for a complete financial and economic collapse followed by a period of sheer human suffering beyond anything that the United States of America has even dreamed of.

The beast is coming.

If Raising Taxes Would Get America Out Of Trouble, WHY IS THE EURO ZONE IN SUCH DEEP SH!T???

August 8, 2011

A friend of mine (we’ve corresponded enough and seen the world the same way enough that I believe “friend” applies) from Sweden commented on my article, “Barack Obama, America’s First Downgraded President.”  In part of his comment, he said of his native Europe:

The leftwing liberal press in Sweden is doing everything to blame the crisis in the U.S. on the Tea Party movement and on the Conservatives’ refusal to raise taxes. As if the Europe’s high taxes are of any help in the Euro zone?

Left Liberal reforms require increased taxes, which then are followed by new leftwing liberal reforms that require even higher taxes, and so on. When the politicians begin to solve problems with tax increases, there will be no stopping as more and more people switch from financing their wellbeing by themselves, to expecting the state to offer it for free or almost free.

Obama and his supporters are leftwing liberals who want to transform the American system to a European kind of model, which means high taxes, big public sector and many more living on welfare and on the state’s expense. I say – do never go along with it, it does not solve any problems with overspending and using taxpayers money without any respect for its actual value.

In those European countries, where it is not possible to charge high taxes from the population, politicians “solve” it by taking large loans. You could say that the socialist and leftwing liberal politicians buy their positions of power with borrowed money. Now it is no longer possible. Europe is full of Obamas and Pelosis, and these have not only ruined their own countries but are about to ruin even Germany, Holland and probably also us in Sweden.

Europe taxes the bejeezus out of EVERYTHING:  “Take a look at the current European tax rates below which range from 59.6% to 83%. The European VAT tax (Government Sales Tax) ranges from 16% to 25%.”  And that’s just for starters; they also pay at least TWICE as much on gasoline and diesel because they massively tax energy, too.  And of course there are just ALL KINDS of other taxes and regulations that amount to massive hidden taxes in the Eurozone.

Democrats are out there just flat out rabidly DEMONIZING Republicans and particularly Tea Party caucus members as “terrorists” because we wouldn’t hike taxes.  In the article my friend Penumbra added his own insights to, I had said the following:

Obama and the Democrats are like addicts, blaming everybody but themselves for their failures and the chaos and disaster those failures have caused. The obvious fact of the matter is that the stock market took a huge hit for two reasons which both have “Democrat Party” written all over them: 1) the utter failure of European socialism at a time when Obama and the Democrats are still determined to follow this completely failed model here:

Markets worldwide were on edge over fiscal weakness in Italy and Spain and the eurozone’s ability to contain more crisis, as the two countries’ borrowing costs surged in recent days.”

and 2) the “let’s just create more money out of thin air” model otherwise known by the technical name of quantitative easing (i.e., QE1, QE2, and apparently soon-to-be QE3). Here’s how THAT very NON-Tea Party bankrupt and bankrupting policy will end:

We have officially crossed into the realm of abject fiscal and moral lunacy under Obama. We are now borrowing more than our entire economy is worth. Obama is borrowing 43 cents out of every dollar he is spending; he is deficit-spending $4.1 billion every single DAY; he has increased the size of government by 27% over George Bush (according to the CBO) and he is utterly determined to keep spending more and more and more.

In May of this year, Obama submitted a budget that would have added $12 trillion to our debt. It was so insane in so many ways that not even one single DEMOCRAT would vote for it in the Democrat-controlled Senate. Obama’s reckless and immoral budget failed by a vote of 97-0.

That’s not some right-wing talking point. That’s the TRUTH. Obama is an embarrassment. He is a disgrace.

Let’s take a moment to contemplate what Obama has done:

  • Trippled budget deficits since he took office
  • Gave us a failed $862 Billion stimulus package that the CBO said actually cost taxpayers $3.27 TRILLION.
  • Spent tens of billions in GM/Chrysler bailouts that were basically fascist (the corporatist state). See here and here.
  • Increased the size of government by 25%
  • Gave us chronic unemployment at Great Depression levels of 18%
  • Gave us a Debt/GDP ratio WORSE thanthe Great Depression
  • That in addition to two EXTRA wars in addition to the two he promised to get us out of and lied. The Libya war that he said would take “days, not weeks” has now dragged on for more than five months with no sign of ending
  • And now he’s given us a credit downgrade for the first time in American history

Obama will say ANYTHING. He is an abject liar and a fool who says one thing and then does another before saying something else entirely. Unfortunately, the pathologically biased mainstream media reports Obama’s constantly shifting rhetoric as if it had anything whatsoever to do with actual reality.

As an example, Obama repeatedly called for huge tax hikes in this debt ceiling deal on top of the $500 billion in tax hikes he got as part of ObamaCare. But listen to his own words in 2009: “You don’t raise taxes in a recession.”

The fact of history is crystal clear: Tax Cuts INCREASE Revenues; They Have ALWAYS Increased Revenues. Versus tax hikes, which reduce revenues and reduce GDP. As the National Bureau of Economic Research put it, “Tax changes have very large effects: an exogenous tax increase of 1 percent of GDP lowers real GDP by roughly 2 to 3 percent.”

And yet what do Obama and the Democrats keep doing? Obama is back to the same utterly failed Marxist class warfare tactics that have failed before. In the 1990s, Democrats imposed a “luxury tax” on items such as yachts, believing that the wealthy “could afford it.” Maybe they could and maybe they couldn’t, but the FACT was that the rich STOPPED buying yachts. As in stopped completely. As in NOBODY bought a yachtwith that damn tax on it. The Democrats finally rescinded that stupid tax two years later after destroying the yach building and yacht maintenance industries and killing over 100,000 jobs. Rich people weren’t hurt at all; ordinary people were devastated.

And now Obama wants to do the same thing with corporate jets that previous Democrats did to yachts. And they only people who will get hurt if Obama gets his way are the companies that hire people to build and maintain those jets and the workers themselves who will lose their jobs and their livelihoods. And the only thing that is stopping this rape of businesses, workers and the economy that depends on workers and businesses are Republicans. Even if many of the very people who are most hurt by Democrats Marxist class warfare policies are too stupid to know it.

It’s not enough to say that the Democrats’ thesis is false; the Democrats’ thesis has been utterly refuted before the world’s very eyes in Europe.  Our problem isn’t that we’re not enough like Europe; the very failure of Europe itself proves that our problem is that we’re already TOO MUCH like Europe.

We’ve got the second highest corporate tax rate in the entire world right now; and the United States is literally more communist than China now in many ways.  I submit that you must have both a mental and a moral problem in order to think raising those taxes and increasing regulations will somehow make our problems go away.  And yet that is precisely what Democrats foolishly believe.

Electricity Rates WILL Skyrocket: Obama EPA Regulations To Cost Coal Industry Extra $180 BILLION

June 11, 2011

Gateway Pundit came up with this further proof that Barack Obama truly is the worst president to ever occupy the White House.

For the record, nearly HALF of America’s electricity comes from coal.

Obama’s EPA Regulations Will Cost Coal Industry $180 Billion & Cause Electricity Rates to Skyrocket
Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, June 8, 2011, 8:03 PM

Worst. President. Ever.
In January 2008 Barack Obama told the San Francisco Chronicle:

“Under my plan of a cap and trade system electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket. Businesses would have to retrofit their operations. That will cost money. They will pass that cost onto consumers.”

He promised that his plan would cause electricity rates to  skyrocket.

He wasn’t kidding.
In January the Obama Administration, for the first time ever, blocked an already approved bid to build one of the largest mountaintop removal coal mines in Appalachian history.

And, on Wednesday it was reported that Obama’s energy plans will cause electricity rates to necessarily skyrocket…
Just as he promised.
Via US News and World Reports:

Two new EPA pollution regulations will slam the coal industry so hard that hundreds of thousands of jobs will be lost, and electric rates will skyrocket 11 percent to over 23 percent, according to a new study based on government data.

Overall, the rules aimed at making the air cleaner could cost the coal-fired power plant industry $180 billion, warns a trade group.

“Many of these severe impacts would hit families living in states already facing serious economic challenges,” said Steve Miller, president of the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity. “Because of these impacts, EPA should make major changes to the proposed regulations before they are finalized,” he said.

The EPA, however, tells Whispers that the hit the industry will suffer is worth the health benefits.

For the record… For every green job created by the Obama EPA, four jobs are lost in the economy.

This man is out to “fundamentally transform” America in a way that will fundamentally destroy America.

And he’s out to hurt ordinary Americans and make their children suffer.

Who do you think is ultimately going to pay this $180 billion TAX that Obama is imposing?  If you guessed “the poor bastard customers” you win the prize.  If you guessed anybody else, then you’re frankly too stupid to vote or reproduce.  Please terminate your voter registration and then go sterilize yourself.

The next question is just as simple: if you make energy prices skyrocket on businesses, are they going to be in a position to create more jobs?  If you think businesses are more likely to create jobs facing such gigantic price-hikes on their energy, I hope that you have already been spayed or neutered.  Because you are simply unreal stupid.  And this kind of dumb has got to end if this country is going to make it to the next generation.

If that isn’t enough, liberals are actually pushing a $1.00 a gallon tax on gasoline to force Americans to purchase the electric cars that Obama imposed on GM after Obama fired the GM CEO and after screwing GM bondholders in order to illegitimately give the company to unions.  It was Obama’s corporatist-fascist (see also here) mouthpiece pushing a huge gas tax to force Obama’s crappy electric clown cars on people who would never want it unless Big Brother made them buy it.

After screwing the legitimate owners of GM, Obama imposed a $16 billion loss for the American people.  But it’s only your money – and your money rewarded Obama’s union cronies who will of course return the favor to Obama with more of your dollars.  In the case of Chrysler, Obama demonized and threatened bondholders, with the result that he practically gave Chrysler away to a foreign company (Fiat).  And actually took credit for all of this as though it were a good thing!!!

Meanwhile, Obama is granting so few new permits for new oil drilling it is positively unreal, which will only make America more dependent on foreign oil and only make that heating oil and gasoline more and more expensive for us both now and down the line.

We now know what “hope and change” looks like: it looks like the American people freezing in the dark at night in the winter and sweltering in the dark at night in the summer, while all the while subsidizing huge write-offs to incentivize the purchase of electric clown cars.

Ground Zero Mosque And Moral Idiot ‘Tolerance’

September 7, 2010

The New York City Community Center – with its proposed site being just two blocks from Ground Zero – is moving forward.

The basis of that forward movement is political correctness and “tolerance.”

New York Mayor Bloomberg told us why our soldiers are fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq:

“I think our young men and women overseas are fighting for exactly this,” Bloomberg said. “For the right of people to practice their religion and for government to not pick and choose which religions they support, which religions they don’t.”

It might be news to our soldiers that their real motivation for fighting overseas is so Muslims can build a giant mosque virtually on top of the site where Muslims murdered 3,000 Americans.

CAIR leader Nihad Awad has repeatedly said that Muslims didn’t have anything to do with 9/11.  And, of course, anyone who suggests that Muslims had anything to do with 9/11 is a bigot.

But the religion whose culture would murder a Christian for giving a Muslim a Bible – let alone building a Christian church near one of their hallowed locations – turns out to be quite judgmental, indeed.

Sorry, Nihad, but here’s the real face of Islam:

This is the latest Time Magazine cover, featuring the face of a woman whose story makes me want to vomit, then cry:

The Taliban pounded on the door just before midnight, demanding that Aisha, 18, be punished for running away from her husband’s house. Her in-laws treated her like a slave, Aisha pleaded. They beat her. If she hadn’t run away, she would have died. Her judge, a local Taliban commander, was unmoved. Aisha’s brother-in-law held her down while her husband pulled out a knife. First he sliced off her ears. Then he started on her nose.

Nihad says that Islam had absolutely nothing to do with 9/11 (the terrorists were like Barney the Dinosaur worshipers, rather than Muslims), and that all Muslims were appalled by the destruction.  The thing is, I remember it very differently.  I remember that the name “Osama bin Laden” was so popular after bin Laden murdered 3,000 Americans and brought the Twin Towers down that many embarrassed Muslim countries banned it.  And I remember footage from all over the world such as in the Palestinian territory and in Barcelona of Muslims literally cheering in the streets in celebration of the 9/11 attack.

So please don’t insult me by trying to tell me something so profoundly stupid that Muslims had nothing to do with 9/11.  I’m not that dumb.

9/11 was a religious act, committed in the name of Allah and Islam (which means submission, not “peace”).

And please don’t insult my intelligence with politically correct nonsense, suggesting that it is my “tolerance duty” to enable a Muslim shrine to be erected on top of an act of Muslim horror.

Let’s say – by way of analogy – that some Jewish group bombed the Dome of the Rock.  Let’s say that, oh, ten years later, another Jewish group – saying that it had absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with the group that bombed the Dome of the Rock – wanted to build a temple there.  You know, to advance the cause of understanding between Muslims and Jews.  And let’s just say that the rabbi behind the project had made a number of incredibly controversial statements (more here), having been frequently caught saying one thing in Hebrew to Jewish audiences, and another thing in English for media consumption.

Do you think that would fly?  Or do you think that the Muslim world would erupt in the greatest outrage the world had ever seen?

Would Nihad Awad or CAIR condemn as “bigoted” any Muslim who opposed that construction?

Anyone who says that Muslims would allow such construction is a liar, a fool, or, more likely, a lying fool.

Germany – which had experienced the bitter ultimate results of Nazism – banned the Nazis from their culture.  They never wanted to experience that evil again.  But our liberal progressives in the ACLU fought hard for the rights of Nazi groups to flourish here in America.

This isn’t about “tolerance.”  It’s about political correctness.

Political correctness is not merely an attempt to be more inclusive or to make people feel better about themselves.  It’s a large, coordinated effort to change Western culture as we know it by  redefining it.  Early Marxists implemented this tactic long ago and continue to execute it today — and now the American liberals who share the Marxist worldview are picking up the same tactic: to control the argument by controlling the “acceptable” language and hence the “acceptable” ideas and values.  Those with radical agendas understand the game plan and are taking advantage of an oversensitive and frankly overly gullible public.

Radicals who want “fundamental transformation” push for anything that will destabilize the hated current system.  They begin in revolutionary mode, inviting change, attacking the status quo.  They are permissive, attacking established and transcendent authority, advocating total sexual freedom, and promoting radical artistic and cultural experimentation.  But once they gain power, however, they are determined to defend the new status quo that they have created.  The questioning of all authorities gives way to the supreme elevation of a new authority that must not be questioned.  Permissiveness gives way to ruthless suppression.  Subversion of order gives way to the imposition of a new order.  And the previously “tolerant” revolution will systematically and ruthlessly suppress any “change” that “hopes” to overcome the big government totalitarian system they have imposed.

Both the Soviet communist (“Union of Soviet SOCIALIST Republics”) and the Nazis (“National SOCIALIST German Workers Party”) were socialist.  Both came from the radical left.  The only major difference between the two was that communism was an international socialist movement, whereas Nazism was a national socialist movement.

Socialism is a germ that can easily become viral and violent.  It’s in the very DNA of socialism.  And those that play with it play with fire (given that it is a political philosophy that has been responsible for the murders of more than 100 million people in peacetime alone).  I say that in recognition of the fact that 55% of Americans now recognize that Barack Hussein Obama is a socialist (as were both his parents and all his mentors before him).

American liberals and progressives served as the useful idiots for communism – including Stalinism – just as they served as useful idiots for fascism – including Nazism.  All one has to do is look at the 1920s and 30s, when Democrat progressives were cheering first Marxism and Joseph Stalin, then Italian fascism and Benito Mussolini, and, yes, Nazi fascism and Adolf Hitler.  FDR‘s cabinet was filled with admiring bureaucrats who had gone to Germany and Russia and Italy to study the “marvelous developments” that were taking place in these planned societies.

And now they are useful idiots for Islamic radicalism as well.  Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf has Muslim Brotherhood provenance, and is an adept practitioner of Islamic taqiyya — deceptive speech and action to advance the interests and supremacy of Islam.

And only useful idiots wouldn’t understand that.

What we are seeing is that it’s not “religion” that Democrat progressives hate per se; it’s orthodox Christianity, which has been the guiding force that shaped the American cultural history they now wish to “fundamentally transform.”  And if these progressives can use Islam to undermine and supplant Christianity, they will do so.  They will use Islam to attack the Christian hold on American culture.  They will use anything at their disposal to burn Christianity out of American culture.  So they can fill the vacuum with themselves and their poisonous ideology.

Christian conservatives [and Christians are conservative because our Messiah revealed Himself and His teachings two millennial ago, rather than a two-year election cycle ago] are “intolerant,” say Democrat progressives.  “Just look at how they are treating these wonderful Muslims who merely want to build a mosque as close as possible to Ground Zero.”  You don’t want intolerant – and therefore bigoted and evil – people like that leading America. Liberals then hold themselves up as morally superior to their “intolerant” conservative opponents, hoping that no one perceives enough to ask why liberals are so tolerant of Islamic fundamentalism but so profoundly intolerant of Christian conservatism.

That’s the real reason the ACLU fought for Nazism in the town of Skokie, where Nazi death camp survivors lived after fleeing the horror of Europe.  And that’s why the ACLU is fighting for Islamic jihadism today.  Because, as their founder said, “communism is the goal” – and anything that undermines the current Christian and free market system of America takes them closer to their cherished “goal.”

The problem with the ideological left trying to harness Islam to destroy the even more hated enemy Christianity is that the left don’t realize that they have a tiger by the tail.  They have bought into their own rhetoric that they can satisfy Islamic jihadism by appeasing them (by serving them Israel on a platter, for example).  But Islam is even more determined to have its way, and even more determined to employ whatever means are necessary – including catastrophic violence – to get it, than the socialist left.

In inviting Islamic fundamentalism to come into America and take root (as it is already doing in our “tolerant” prison system), it is as though the left are using a deadly plague to destroy their opponents, not realizing that they have no cure for the plague themselves.

As for the New York City Community Center, the Muslims certainly should be able to build their mosque (or community center, or whatever they want to call it).  But they should build it elsewhere, rather than near the site of the worst Islamic terrorist attack in history.  They should not be allowed to build a shrine commemorating their conquest of the Twin Towers.

If they are determined to build their “center” two blocks from Ground Zero, then they should be required to live up to their own disingenuous rhetoric: build a multicultural religious center that features a Jewish synagogue and a Christian church, such that men and women of all three monotheistic faiths may come and worship side-by-side together.

The fact of the matter is that they most certainly WON’T do the above.  Which proves that their stated goals are lies, and that what this construction really is is a political act.  If the “community center” is built, it will be a symbol of coming victory for radical Islam; it will be a demonstration that our enemies can violently bring our mightiest buildings down, and then erect mosques on top of their destruction.  And we’re such weak, insipid, pathetic moral fools that we actually help them supplant us.

The Ground Zero mosque (I don’t care if the mainstream media won’t use the most accurate description anymore) is provocation.  That is the entire idea: to suggest doing something despicable, and then point a finger at the American people over their “intolerant” reaction.

Meanwhile, the real insult to the American people is the giant hole where the World Trade Center used to be.  Because there was a time when we were the sort of people who would have immediately built an even greater building there – and defied our enemies to knock that one down.  Now we’re the sort of people who spend ten years twiddling our thumbs (both of which seem to be left thumbs) and listening to useful idiots lecture us.

Much the same way those ACLU attorneys lectured the Jewish Holocaust survivors living in Skokie, Illinois during the Jimmy Carter era.

List Of How Our Country Went To Hell While Obama On Vacation #6 Almost As Long As It Is Scary

August 27, 2010

If there was ever a “Let them eat cake” administration, this one’s it.

I like the hilariously cynical “Newsflash” part of this ABC News title.  It brings out the massively disconnected look of contempt for the “forgotten man” in Obama’s eyes.

“Wave at all the little nobodies, daughters, wave at all the little nobodies.  Emperor worship is all they have left to live for.”

Breaking News: President Obama Says “I’m Having a Great Time” On Vacation
August 25, 2010 12:42 PM

Last night President Obama and First Lady Obama dined at State Road Restaurant in West Tisbury on Martha’s Vineyard.

Their dinner companions were family friends Dr. Eric and Cheryl Whitaker, senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, and lawyer and business executive Vernon Jordan and wife Ann Dibble Jordan.

As they departed the restaurant at 9:55 pm ET, reporters asked the president if he was enjoying his vacation even with the rain.

“I’m having a great time,” the president said. “Doing a lot of reading”

[Snip]

Kenworth said she’d been asked not to talk about what the Obamas ordered, but “the whole table got lobster tempura with island corn succotash and lemon vinaigrette” in addition to their individual entrees.

You wouldn’t have asked for about 310 million doggy bags for those lobster tempura leftovers, would you, Barry?

Meanwhile, back in the real world, the American people are watching their economy go directly to hell.  As in, “Go to hell.  Go directly to hell.  Do not pass ‘Recovery Summer,’ do not collect $200.”

Obama’s having a grand old time because he doesn’t give a flying fart about the following facts that have gripped the country while he was gripping a golf club:

The mainstream media’s adjective of the day to summarize all of the above is “unexpected,” of course.

And my favorite headline while Obama was on vacation #6 (not hard give the competition) comes from Überlefty David Letterman:

Okay, scratch that: THIS is my favorite headline:

All of these things were reported as occurring during one of Obama’s four golf outings on his sixth vacation so far just this year.

And the bad news is that I am very likely missing some real important seriously bad news that’s happened during Obama’s little holiday from responsibility (but after all, it IS “Bush’s fault,” right?  And why should Obama do anything to take responsibility when he can just continue to demonize Bush?).

But, I mean Obama’s having a good time, right?  Just imagine how much the worse our our sucky little lives would have been if Obama’s vacation lacked some luxury that turned his smile into a frown…

Michelle Obama, the Bride of Messiah, decried America as a “downright mean” place in 2008, that was “guided by fear.” Maybe so.  But thanks to your husband, Michelle, it’s gotten a whole hell of a lot meaner and a whole hell of a lot more fearful in the two years since in which Obama has led us down the path to ruin.

May Obama, having the rest and clarity of yet another vacation, decide to resign from office before it’s too late to save what is left of the nation.

You probably won’t listen to my version of “In the name of God, GO!”  But it would sure be better for America – and even for your own party – if you did.

On the bright side, for you, Barry:

There’s a place for “the hungry, the naked, the homeless, the crippled, the blind, the lepers, all those people who feel unwanted, unloved, uncared for throughout society, people that have become a burden to the society and are shunned by everyone.”

Mother Teresa started it, and it’s still running strong. Although you don’t deserve it, Barry, there will be a place for you to go after you’ve imploded the entire American and global economies.

America, A Nation Uniquely Founded Upon Judeo-Christian Principles

July 4, 2010

Republican Rep. J. Randy Forbes responded to Barack Obama’s going to Turkey to tell Muslims that America doesn’t consider itself Christian nation as follows:
