Obama Likens Gulf Oil Disaster To 9/11, As If Free Market Enterprise Is Akin To Terrorism

June 15, 2010

Obama – who has all but destroyed relations with one of our closest allies in Israel – has gone on to all but destroy relations with our very closest ally of all.

From an article which the Desert Sun appropriately entitled, “Gulf disaster jeopardizes U.S., British relations”:

Obama has said he would have fired BP’s top executive if he were in charge. He embraced the idea that the oil company suspend its quarterly dividend. He reproached BP for spending money on a public relations campaign. This past week, he said in a television interview, “I don’t sit around just talking to experts because this is a college seminar; we talk to these folks because they potentially have the best answers — so I know whose ass to kick.”

He occasionally refers to “British Petroleum,” although the company years ago began using only its initials and is a far-reaching international corporation with extensive holdings in the United States, including a Texas refinery and a share of the Alaska oil pipeline.

The angry words from Washington have produced a backlash in Britain, where BP is viewed as a corporate pillars. Millions of British retirees depend on BP dividends since pension funds are heavily invested in the oil company, the world’s third-largest.

I have written that Obama should start by kicking his own ass elsewhere.  But that’s another matter.

Obama has been hard at work undermining the historic relationship between England and America since he took office and told England it could have its crappy bust of irrelevant Winston Churchill back.

Oh, well.  What’s a special relationship that has stood for nearly two centuries and led to victory over evil in two world wars?

How does that any of that compare to the gain of directly attacking capitalism and the free market system when you’re a Marxist?

The Lonely Conservative has an article that includes Youtube video of Obama adviser Robert Reich calling for the US to socialize – er, nationalize – BP.  And Reich (and Maxine Waters, of course) are joined by uber-liberal Rosie O’Donnell, who says:

“Seize their assets today. Take over the country, I don’t care. Issue and executive order. Say BP guess what…call it socialism, call it communism, call it anything you want. Lets watch Rush Limbaugh explode…on TV when he talks….SEIZE THE ASSETS, take over BP.”

So I’m just agreeing with a liberal icon and calling it what it is.

And in that spirit, we have this latest:

Obama likens Gulf environmental disaster to 9/11
Jun 14 09:37 AM US/Eastern President Barack Obama likened the disastrous oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico to the September 11 attacks in an interview published on the eve of his fourth visit Monday to the stricken region.

“In the same way that our view of our vulnerabilities and our foreign policy was shaped profoundly by 9/11, I think this disaster is going to shape how we think about the environment and energy for many years to come,” he told Politico.com.

Obama said he would be making a fresh bid to get Congress to pass a major energy and climate bill.

He was quoted as vowing to “move forward in a bold way in a direction that finally gives us the kind of future-oriented … visionary energy policy that we so vitally need and has been absent for so long.”

“One of the biggest leadership challenges for me going forward is going to be to make sure that we draw the right lessons from this disaster,” he said.

Flopping Aces has several humorously illustrated pictures that get to the heart of the joke Obama and his stupid remarks are:

Some 56 days into the disaster and this is the best this fool can come up with???  Seriously???

Is BP like Osama bin Laden?  Is free market enterprise no different from al Qaeda?  Should our response to BP and the free market system be war, such as it was following 9/11?

Apparently so, according to the latest from the Failure-in-Chief.  You don’t think that Karl Marx and the demagogic propagandists his ideas inspired wouldn’t have compared capitalism and the free market system to a terrorist entity that we needed to declare war upon?

Obama is once again revealing his profoundly deep Marxist roots that go all the way down to that tiny black shriveled thing he calls his soul.

And apparently drawing “the right lessons from this disaster” means more Stalinism.

Obama, in the mantra of his chief of staff, has the position to “Never let a serious crisis go to waste.  What I mean by that is it’s an opportunity to do things you couldn’t do before.”

Is the oil leak that is turning the ocean black a disaster?  Not for Obama: it’s an opportunity to usurp more power from the private sector, to seize more power for mega-government.  For Obama, hard-core leftist ideologue, the oil disaster is an opportunity to impose his cap-and-trade system, which had been DOA.  It’s an opportunity to impose a system which he himself said would make energy prices “necessarily skyrocket.”  Who cares if it is shockingly expensive?  Who cares if it amounts to yet another Marxist redistribution of wealth?  Who cares if little people get hurt?  The government will be to tax more, and have more power to regulate every detail of our lives.

Obama and his people are Marxist-facists.  They are demagogues; they are fearmongers and propagandists.  They are out to undermine our relationships with our greatest allies, and they are out to undermine this country in hopes of being able to impose a Marxist system following an engineered economic collapse (see also here).

The UK Telegraph features a piece which is considerably nicer.  It basically says that Obama isn’t a Marxist plant out to destroy America, but rather just a pathetically ignorant cheap political opportunist.  Here’s how the article begins:

Increasingly, political judgment as well as basic common sense is being suspended in the White House. We are witnessing not only the dramatic dumbing down of US policy under the Obama administration, with cheap soundbites standing in for strong leadership, but also a staggering inability to comprehend the scale of the global war the West is engaged in, as well as a disturbing willingness to downplay its importance and forget the scale of the loss the American people suffered nine years ago.

And from that high point, Nile Gardiner, in this piece entitled, “The Gulf oil spill is not 9/11: the Obama administration plumbs new depths of stupidity,” takes off the kid gloves.

Ignorant dumbass or Manchurian Candidate?  You decide.

Rabid Arizona Boycotters Continue To Be Boycotted – Blame Obama For The Whole Mess

May 22, 2010

Remember how Obama promised to transcend the political divide and reach out to “move beyond the divisive politics”?

Well, he lied.

Instead we have the most divisive and polarizing president in American history, a man who fearmongers, demagogues, and demonizes without regard for the truth.

Obama deceitfully and maliciously told a story of fathers being deported just for taking their children to get ice cream.  The fact of the matter is that there is absolutely nothing whatsoever in the Arizona immigration law that would produce anything like the fearmongering scenarios our Demagogue-in-chief claims.  And I defy anyone to actually cite the bills as proof of any such argument.

If you really want to go after a bigoted racist on immigration policy, why don’t you go after Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and the Democrat Congress?  Because they’re running the federal government, and it is simply a fact that the federal law is FAR more “racist” than the Arizona law.

And, of course, Democrats gave a standing ovation to the President of Mexico, whose immigration laws protecting Mexico from Central American illegal immigrants are about as hard-core as it gets.

But none of that matters.  Not to Obama, and not to Demon-crats.  They’re liars and demagogues, and what else do you expect liars and demagogues to do if not lie and demagogue???

So, in the bipartisan, non-ideological, and transcendent world of Barack Obama, American cities boycott one another in a move to start an economic war that will bring the country crashing down.

The silver lining to it – if there IS one – is that the boycott appears to be hurting the cities of the rabid little liberal rodents even more than it’s hurting Arizona:

Boycott Backlash: Some stay out of city
Growing number vow not to do business in Austin
Friday, 21 May 2010

AUSTIN (KXAN) – The city council’s decision to boycott travel to Arizona is resulting in organizations and individuals boycotting the city of Austin in protest.

A growing number of political organizations, including the Odessa and Burleson Tea Parties, have decided not to do business with the city of Austin until the council rescinds the Arizona boycott they passed a few weeks ago.

“We will try to minimize what the city gets from our stay there,” said Hood county Republican Party Chairman Randy Shelton. “We will not stay in hotels inside the city of Austin and we will not ride the city transit.”

Shelton says they will continue to support Austin businesses but try to prevent any dollars from going towards city revenue. Other boycotts are more extreme.

A search online showed many more individuals vowing not to do business in Austin, including one poster who says they will cancel hotel reservations and a Leander resident who says they will skip having lunch inside Austin city limits.

The boycott apparently is already being felt according to the Austin Hotel and Lodging Association who sent KXAN this statement:

“The AHLA is not a political association and does not in any way support travel boycotts of any kind. Hotels in Austin are now beginning to experience concrete evidence from the many visitors now canceling their leisure or business plans to Austin.”

KXAN was told some of the cancellations include riders who normally take part in the Republic of Texas Rally.

All I can say, residents of Austin, is that you should have thought about this before you elected a bunch of leftwing ideologue loons to your city council.

I wrote an earlier article about San Diego reeling from counter-boycotts by pissed-off Arizonans.  Let San Diego’s tourism industry blow up in flames because Democrats are vile and intolerant people who just have to spread their hate around with boycotts against innocent and decent Arizonans who are just trying to deal with an impossible wave of illegal immigration and the crises created by illegal immigration.

And I frankly hope that Los Angeles is honest enough to cut off a full 25% of their electricity which is produced by Arizona.  And Arizona may help Los Angeles find their missing integrity by cutting off the electricity it supplies.  You want a boycott?  Let’s have at it.  Wonder how many Los Angelinos will die sweltering in the heat without air conditioning this summer as a result of their own city council’s stupid and immoral boycott?

This is all Barack Obama’s fault.  He’s the demagogue who started this.  He’s the one who has set us at one anothers’ throats with his fearmongering and his lies.  Thanks to him, we don’t have to worry about al Qaeda, or Iran, or North Korea; now we’ve got to worry about Los Angeles and Austin and a whole bunch of other cities starting an endless war of mutually assured economic destruction with the people of Arizona.

Maybe one of Obama’s top officials will finally actually bother to read the ten page law they’ve been demonizing.  None of them have so far.  The reason none of them have is because they don’t want to have to be held accountable to the truth.

Have To Admit, It’s Kind Of Nice To See Democrats Get Treated Like Vermin

January 16, 2010

Ben Nelson is persona non grata to go with being Slimeball of the Year.

Democrats have been hell bent on spending us into oblivion, passing the health care destruction act, passing amnesty for illegal aliens, passing cap-growth-and trade-productivity, and blithely ignoring that people are getting mad as hell.

Republican Scott Brown is leading Democrat Martha Coakley in Massachusetts – a state in which Democrats outnumber Republicans three-to-one – by three percentage points according to Coakley’s own internal pollingIn Massachusetts.

I am praying for a Scott Brown victory, but c’mon: NOBODY predicted that Scott Brown would even be CLOSE in this race only a few months ago.

In a way, Scott Brown defeating Coakley and taking away the filibuster-proof majority eight months before it would have happened anyway may be the salvation of Democrats.

Because if they had passed all this crap, I truly believe that one day after the collapse of America, the people would find voter registration rolls, and start individually hunting down Democrats with dogs and burning them alive.

In any event, Democrat Senator Ben Nelson is getting to experience being burned a little bit early.

Ben Nelson tries to repair damage at home
By MANU RAJU | 1/14/10 4:55 AM EST

Nebraska Sen. Ben Nelson and his wife were leaving dinner at a new pizza joint near their home in Omaha one night last week when a patron began complaining about Nelson’s decisive vote in favor of the Senate’s health care bill.

Other customers started booing. A woman yelled, “Get him the hell out of here!” And the Nelsons and their dining companions beat a hasty retreat.

“It was definitely a scene in there,” said Tom Lewis, a 41-year-old dentist and registered Republican who witnessed the incident. A second witness confirmed the incident to POLITICO.

It’s a new experience for Nelson.

He used to be a popular figure back home, a Democrat who served eight years in the governor’s office and was elected twice to the Senate by a state that’s as red as the “N” on the University of Nebraska’s football helmets.

But Nelson has seen his approval ratings tumble in the wake of his wavering over the historic health care bill, his deal-cutting with other Senate Democrats and, ultimately, his support to break a GOP filibuster and send the bill to a House-Senate conference committee.

Nelson, who has a track record of brokering bipartisan deals, said for months that he was unsure whether to back a Democrats-only bill, and he criticized language in the measure that would impose taxes and cut Medicare costs in order to pay for extending coverage to most Americans. But after weeks of negotiations, Nelson made his peace with the bill by striking deals on his state’s Medicaid costs and on abortion language — and, in the process, incited a furious backlash in Nebraska.

Anti-abortion activists who have supported him in the past have abandoned him; he’s been the target of a fierce campaign by opponents to push him to block the bill on final passage; and the GOP now sees the opportunity for a pickup in 2012.

Meantime, Nelson is still viewed warily by more-liberal Democrats who distrust his conservative leanings and remain upset with his opposition to a public option.

“He’s kind of a man without a state,” said Julie Schmit-Albin, executive director of Nebraska Right to Life, an influential anti-abortion group that had endorsed Nelson’s previous election bids but has “pretty much cut [its] ties” with the senator over the abortion deal in the health care bill. The group plans a rally Jan. 30 in front of the state Capitol in Lincoln and will weigh whether to use its influence to go after Nelson ahead of 2012, when he is up for a third term.

The state Republican Party has set up a website calling for voters to eject Nelson from office, and it has already raised “tens of thousands of dollars” for advertising, according to Mark Fahleson, chairman of the state party.

And Democrats in Washington worry that the pressure may cause Nelson to defect in the end, particularly since the senator — once again — has made clear that his final vote on the bill is not guaranteed.

Nelson, who declined requests for an interview, is responding to the blowback with a major effort to reverse public opinion, criss-crossing the state county by county and holding interviews with a slew of local newspapers and TV and radio stations. He has explained his vote and the deals he made in several newspaper op-eds, held a news conference outside his home in Omaha and made a “sizable number” of calls to individual voters who have written him to express their concerns, according to his spokesman.

I’m sure that liberal activists are going to say that the anger Nelson experienced is the result of “rightwing Republican extremists.”  But it isn’t.  It’s Republicans, Independents, and Democrats who are as mad as hell, and just won’t take it anymore.

Better to be a piece of dog poop than it is to be Ben Nelson right now, as far as his voters are concerned.

Nelson is saying he wants to take back the provision (i.e., the $100 million bribe) that he accepted to give Nebraska a sweetheart Medicaid deal for life.

Does anybody think that’s going to make Nebraska happy?  For Nelson to take back the deal he made to undermine the will of the people to begin with?

Rather than taking back the unconstitutional $100 million Nebraska Purchase, what Nebraska voters want is for Nelson to take back his vote.  Or else they want to take back his head.
