If Nation Defaults, It Is ENTIRELY Obama’s Fault

October 7, 2013

Today Obama went to FEMA to thank them for working without pay.  That was his pretense, anyway.  Actually, he went to get in front of a microphone and demonize Republicans some more.

Here’s a short article that sums up the situation quite nicely:

Obama thanks FEMA for work during shutdown
Posted: Oct 07, 2013 9:51 AM PDT Updated: Oct 07, 2013 9:52 AM PDT

Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama is thanking workers at the Federal Emergency Management Agency for doing their jobs under “less than optimal circumstances” during the government shutdown.

Obama made an unannounced visit to FEMA Monday as the shutdown neared the one-week mark. Some furloughed employees at the agency were recalled last week and worked without pay to help prepare for Tropical Storm Karen.

The president said FEMA employees remain ready to respond when needed, but their jobs have been “made more difficult.” He says the shutdown may actually end up costing taxpayers more money.

Funding for FEMA was among the series of piecemeal spending bills passed by the House last week. The White House has threatened to veto the measures, saying the government should not be reopened one agency at a time.

Do you get that, stupid universe?  FEMA isn’t shut down because Republicans shut them down; because REPUBLICANS FUNDED FEMA and a lot of the rest of the government.  No, FEMA is shut down because Democrats who control the Senate won’t allow the House-passed bill to go forward, and because if anybody tries to fund FEMA and pay those workers, BARACK OBAMA WILL VETO IT.

THAT’S why FEMA is on furlough.

But we live in an age just before Obama implodes America, sends the world into depression and the beast of the Book of Revelation comes.  And so the truth has largely been replaced by demon-possessed lies.

Here’s another reason that Obama rabidly refuses to negotiate or compromise in any way, any shape or any form as we approach a debt default:

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

Obama and Charlie Sheen have something in common: they’re not bi-polar; they are BI-WINNING.

That and the fact that they are both demonic people who have a truly psychotic worldview.

Obama has been shutting down things left and right for the sole purpose of making the shutdown as painful for as many people as he can.  He’s shut down WWII memorials and things like the Lincoln Memorial that have NEVER been closed during ANY of our previous government shutdowns:

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

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

“We’ve been told – by OBAMA through his federal government demon-possessed bureaucrats – to make life as difficult for people as they possibly can.”  Quote.  And you’re damn right it’s absolutely disgusting.

Do you know that at all of these memorials that Obama has shut down for no other reason that to be petty and vindictive is that he’s using more security guards to keep the American people OUT of their monuments than were being used to just keep them open???

That was what Sen Rand Paul was mocking when he tweeted:

@BarackObama sent 7 security guards to this AM to keep out our vets. Sadly, that is 2 more than were present in Benghazi.

Obama tried to shut down the Army-Navy football game – again, for the first time EVER during one of our many government shutdowns – just because he’s a petty tyrant and that’s the kind of cheap trick that a petty tyrant does:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. —  On a beautiful fall day, the parking lot at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium was filled with fans and tailgate parties. A record crowd of 38,225 showed up Saturday for the football game between Navy and Air Force.

Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk looked at the activity around him and smiled. After tumultuous week, he was right where he was supposed to be Saturday.

The Air Force-Navy game was in serious jeopardy on Tuesday, when the Department of Defense suspended athletic competition at the nation’s service academies because of the U.S. government shutdown. At that point, Gladchuk took action to convince the DOD that the game should be played because it was funded by non-appropriated money.

His effort paid off. Late Wednesday night, the DOD relented. […]

“There was some concern, but I was hopeful it would happen because they’ve never canceled a Navy football game during a government shutdown,” Lang said.

“Navy athletics is privately funded,” Miles said. “The idea of them trying to cancel a game between two service academies is appalling.”

There’s another word to use to describe Obama’s thug tactics in addition to “disgusting”: “appalling.”

Obama the thug has his White House thugs and federal government thugs frantically trying to close down absolutely everything they can possibly close down just to hurt as many people as they can.  EVEN WHEN FEDERAL FUNDS AREN’T EVEN BEING USED.  Just so Obama can falsely blame Republicans even though the only part of government they basically HAVEN’T funded is demonic ObamaCare fiasco.

I recently pointed out a few other examples of just how positively VILE Obama and his Democrat stooge-thugs have been during this period.

But here’s another one that is just so utterly beyond “appalling” or “disgusting” that “vile” hardly is enough to describe it: Obama closed down the Amber alert system created to find kidnapped children before a pedophile can rape them.

And if it comes to it, believe me, Obama is thug enough and petty enough to order this, too, joke or no joke.  He’s just that demonic.

But you still haven’t grasped the true, genuine evil that is Barack Obama.  He’s actively trying to sabotage our economy just so he can blame the other party for what HE did.  Democrats are accusing Republicans of being “economic terrorists.”  But let’s take a look at our “Economic Terrorist-in-CHIEF”:

Washington (AFP) – President Barack Obama sent Wall Street a blunt warning Wednesday that it should be very worried about a political crisis that has shut down the government and could trigger a US debt default.

Obama said he was “exasperated” by the budget impasse in Congress, in an interview with CNBC apparently designed to pressure Republicans by targeting the financial community moments after markets closed.

The president then met Republican and Democratic leaders for their first talks since the US government money’s ran out and it slumped into a shutdown now well into its second day.

But few informed observers held out much hope for a sudden breakthrough.

Obama was asked in the interview whether Washington was simply gripped by just the latest in a series of political and fiscal crises which reliably get solved at the last minute.

In unusually frank comments on issues that could sway markets, Obama warned that investors should be worried.

“This time’s different. I think they should be concerned,” Obama said, in comments which may roil global markets.

“When you have a situation in which a faction is willing potentially to default on US government obligations, then we are in trouble,” Obama said.

Obama said he would not negotiate with Republicans on budget matters until House lawmakers pass a temporary financing bill to reopen federal operations and raised the $16.7 trillion dollar debt ceiling.

This is the bottom line: in a couple of weeks, America faces a debt ceiling issue.

Keep in mind that if Republicans act like Obama, they will vote against EVER raising the damn debt ceiling.  Remember what Obama said when he was a Senator to demonize George W. Bush???

“The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents – #43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.”

And:

The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”

That was when it was $9 trillion.  IT’S VERY NEARLY DOUBLE THAT NOW, THANKS TO OBAMA’S UTTER DEPRAVITY.

HOW WAS IT “IRRESPONSIBLE” AND “UNPATRIOTIC” TO INCREASE THE DEBT CEILING WHEN IT WAS $9 TRILLION BUT NOT SO NOW WHEN THE DEBT IS 17 TRILLION???  Other than that it isn’t fascist when Obama does it???

You need to realize something: the real crisis of this debt ceiling impasse is that America could find itself unable to make the interest payments on the debt – which would be a default on America’s perfect credit.

Do you know why that could happen?  Do you know who would be entirely to blame if that does happen?

Barack Hussein Obama, thug, liar and traitor, that’s who.

Our interest payments on the debt amount to about $25 billion a month.  That sounds like a lot, but during any shutdown or debt ceiling impasse, the United States still raises far more in taxes every single month.  And it would just be a matter of arranging to prioritize the payments on the debt and to assure the credit markets that we will be doing so in order to maintain confidence.

But Obama doesn’t want that.  He wants to create as much pain and misery and destruction as he can.  Because he wants to trot out to every single dishonest propagandist mainstream media microphone and slander the Republican Party for doing what OBAMA DID.

There is absolutely no chance of a true default if Obama does what any leader who isn’t completely morally insane would do.  It is entirely under Obama’s authority to make those interest payments.  And to complete the picture, the Republicans have already approved this and other payments.  Absolutely nobody but Obama would be to blame.

If the United States defaults on its interest payments and creates a market meltdown, it is because Obama – who could easily avoid that merely by making the interest payments that are his authority to make – wants to create a market meltdown.

And the fact of the matter is that Barack Obama is an evil enough man to make that happen.

Barack Obama has rabidly refused to negotiate.  Literally, he is the first president in the history of the republic to refuse to negotiate – in spite of his many lies to the contrary.  In fact, the debt ceiling has been raised 63 times since 1979 – and fully 27 of those times, the debt ceiling was directly linked to other issues.  For instance, in 1973, Ted Kennedy and Walter Mondale – both top national Democrats – attempted to link the debt ceiling to campaign finance reform.

And in every single case up to now, the president was enough of a grown-up to NEGOTIATE AND BE WILLING TO COMPROMISE.

I am so sick of Obama’s and his administration’s constant spewing of outright lies.

If the Republicans follow the example set by the president, they will likewise refuse to negotiate and allow the country to slide off a cliff.

Liar Obama Demonizes GOP For Using Debt Ceiling JUST LIKE HE USED IT When He Was A Senator

September 19, 2013

Quote from September 18, 2013:

“You have never seen in the history of the United States the debt ceiling or the threat of not raising the debt ceiling being used to extort a president … and trying to force issues that have nothing to do with the budget and have nothing to do with the debt,” Obama said in speech to the Business Roundtable, a nonpartisan association of top American CEOs.

That’s very interesting, since:

Obama Sidesteps Question on Not Raising Debt Ceiling as a Senator
Thursday, 24 Jan 2013 11:22 PM By Todd Beamon

President Barack Obama at his news conference Monday on the debt ceiling  sidestepped a reporter’s question on why he voted against raising the nation’s  borrowing limit when he was an Illinois senator but now expected Congress to do  so.

CBS News White House correspondent Major Garrett asked Obama about a  “new adamant desire on your part not to negotiate when that seems to conflict  with the entire history in the modern era of American presidents in the debt  ceiling and your own history on the debt ceiling.”

In his 339-word  response, according to a transcript from the Washington Post, Obama never  addressed his voting history on the issue — beginning, instead, with “getting  votes for the debt ceiling is always difficult — and budgets in this town are  always difficult.”

He then mentioned how, last year, “certain groups in  Congress took such an absolutist position that we came within a few days of  defaulting.”

Obama added: “We have never seen the debt ceiling used in  this fashion, where the notion was, you know what, we might default unless we  get 100 percent of what we want. That hasn’t happened.”

And he  underscored how the GOP was doing the same thing again with the impending talks.  “But what you’ve never seen is the notion that has been presented so far at  least by the Republicans that deficit reduction will only count spending cuts,  that we will raise the deficit — or the debt ceiling dollar for dollar on  spending cuts.”

The president then reiterated his pledge that the  nation’s credit rating would not be held hostage to such demands.

“What  we’re not going to do is put ourselves in a position where in order to pay for  spending that we’ve already incurred, that our two options are, we’re either  going to profoundly hurt the economy, and hurt middle- class families, and hurt  seniors, and hurt kids who are trying to go to college, or alternatively we’re  going to blow up the economy. We’re not going to do that.”

But as for  Obama’s own history on voting against raising the debt ceiling, not a word.

Note that this pathologically dishonest man has been using the same damn lie over and over and over all year long.

Here are the facts against this incredibly dishonest liar:

While President Obama’s economic advisor Austin Goolsbee argued Sunday that a refusal by the Senate to increase the government’s debt ceiling (currently $14.3 trillion) would be “catastrophic” and a sign of “insanity,” that’s not the position the president has held in the past.

Here are Obama’s thoughts on the debt limit in 2006, when he voted against increasing the ceiling:

The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.

In 2007 and in 2008, when the Senate voted to increase the limit by $850 billion and $800 billion respectively, Obama did not bother to vote. (He did vote for TARP, which increased the debt limit by $700 billion.)

Which is another way of saying that Barack Obama NEVER voted FOR raising the debt ceiling when George W. Bush was president.  Not even ONCE.

But Barack Obama is that particularly demonic species of hypocrite who says over and over again on issue after issue, “What was fascist for thee is never fascist for me.”

If in fact it is wrong to note vote for increasing the debt ceiling, Barack Obama needs to resign in disgrace.  Because he NEVER did it and in fact actively worked against raising the debt ceiling when someone in the other party was president.  If it wasn’t wrong when Obama did it, it most certainly isn’t so godawful terrible for Republicans to do the same thing Obama did now.  Unless you’re a true hypocrite – which liberals invariably are.

Barack Obama is the WORST kind of hyper-partisan ideologue.  Because he is a hypocrite without shame, without integrity and without honor.

A couple of days ago, while some dozen Americans were still lying dead at the crime scene after a psycho’s murderous rampage less than two miles away, Barack Obama gave a viciously partisan speechThe Christian Post summarized the sheer twisted ridiculousness that is Obama:

President Barack Obama was criticized for delivering a highly partisan Monday speech on the economy while the nation was gripped by a shooting at the Navy Yard in Washington, D.C., that left 12 dead. His speech had two main points that appear contradictory: (1) The economy is doing well. And, (2) It is the Republican’s fault that the economy is not doing well.

I would ask you to keep in mind that this is really nothing more than yet another of Obama’s countless “pivots” as he tries to distract Americans away from his blatant incompetent failure over the Syria fiasco.  That said, Obama is the kind of hyper-partisan ideologue demagogue who demonizes the other party for being “political” and being “divisive” when HE IS THE MOST DIVISIVE POLITICIAN WHO HAS EVER LIVED.

If in fact the Republican Party acts in ANY way like Obama has acted throughout his political career and throughout his presidency, they will try to attack Obama and stop him in absolutely every single thing he tries to do.  And they will absolutely refuse to negotiate just as Obama has absolutely refused to negotiate.  They will also utterly and completely contradict themselves while being just as utterly and completely petty.

The only difference is that they don’t have the adoring fascist media propaganda to protect them and spin the news to frame the narrative the way Obama does.

Apparently it’s wrong to act like Obama.  Except whenever Obama acts like Obama.

We could add in stuff like the debt, the deficit and the debt ceiling.  But who’s counting?  Not the mainstream media, that’s for sure.

It is amazing how hypocritical the Democrat Party and the liberals who form their core truly are.  They are bad people and bad people always prefer lies just as they are always hypocrites.  You cannot have an honest argument with people who say one thing,do another – and then say something completely different without ever having acknoweledged how dishonest they were from the beginning.

In order to have a fair and honest debate, you simply have to have both sides have integrity.  We don’t have that as long as we have liberals with any power.

The Perilous Times St. Paul Prophesied In The Last Days Have Come: Sandy Hook Murderer Adam Lanza Worshiped Satan

December 20, 2012

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.  — 2 Timothy 3:1-5

And we’re there.

Adam was the first man, of course.  Adam Lanza is the first man of Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of America.

Some interesting facts about Adam Lanza:

‘I am the devil’: Former classmate reveals school gunman had ‘online devil worshiping page’ as childhood barber recounts how he never spoke and just stared at floors
By Meghan Keneally and Rachel Quigley
PUBLISHED:11:05 EST, 19 December 2012| UPDATED: 11:51 EST, 19 December 2012

The Sandy Hook gunman worshiped the devil and had an online page dedicated to Satan, a former classmate revealed, as his childhood barber recalls Adam Lanza never spoke and would stare at the floor every time he had his hair cut.   Lanza’s worshiping page had the word ‘Devil’ written in red, Gothic-style letters against a black background, Trevor L. Todd told The National Enquirer, something which he said was ‘weird’ and ‘gave him the chills’.

The FBI are trying to piece together his smashed up hard drive to see if his online footprint will reveal any motive for the killing, but they strongly believe he made use of devil-worshiping and suicide sites and boasted of his murder plans on message forums.

Don’t worry, though.  Democrats – which means “Demonic Bureaucrats” – will never turn their back on Lucifer.  Which is why they are working so hard now to demagogue so-called “assualt weapons” and guns in general.

It frankly doesn’t matter if the “I am the devil” part of this story turns out to be another media-generated dead-end.  St. Paul would have taken one look at this pathetic little punk and at the violent video game world he lived in and said, “Yep.  That’s what I tried to warn you about, all right.”

This passage chilled my soul:

Cutting Adam Lanza’s hair ‘was a very long half an hour. It was a very uncomfortable situation,’ stylist Diane Harty said. She said that she never heard his voice and that Nancy Lanza also hardly spoke.

Another stylist, Jessica Phillips, echoed their descriptions of the Lanzas and added that Nancy Lanza would give her son directions about what to do and where to go.

Adam would move only ‘when his mother told him to,’ Skuba said.

‘I would say, “Adam, come on.” He wouldn’t move,’ Skuba said.

‘And his mother would have to say, “Adam, come on, he’s ready.” It was like I was invisible.’

He said Adam also wouldn’t move from his chair after his hair was cut until his mother told him to.

If a stylist would ask Adam a question, Skuba said, his mother would answer.

‘He would just be looking down at the tiles … the whole time,’ Skuba said.

This product of the perilous times of the last days was a time bomb, just biding its time and waiting to go off like Michael waiting for his “Friday the 13th” moment.

The same psychologists who decided out of political correctness that homosexuals are just as “normal” as everybody else have also decided out of the same sense of political correctness that there is no such category as “evil.”  Unless guns are mentioned, that is.

If guns are evil, they should be kept out of the hands of the police and the military.  Forget the fact that this demonic turd killed himself only when people who could shoot back showed up.  And forget the fact that the areas with the strictest gun control laws have the highest crime rates because predators always target the helpless just the way that Adam Lanza targeted helpless children in an unarmed environment in a strict gun control state.  So you just forget the fact that Oama’s “model city on the hill” in Chicago has the very strictest gun control laws in the entire nation to go with the highest murder rate in the nation.

“Gun-free zones” are a synonym for “target-rich environments.”  And liberals – as always – are wicked in their stupidity and stupid in their wickedness.

Why not ban the überliberalmobile otherwise known as the Toyota Prius which is being revealed as a death trap?  Why not ban kitchen knives ?  I mean, has society learned nothing from the O.J. Simpson case?  Why not ban pieces of wood that could be used as clubs?  Why isn’t there a federal law requiring that all forks have corks to cover those incredibly dangerous prongs?

Biden_Ruprecht

Come ON, America!  Let’s finally deal with all of these murder weapons once and for all:

Murder weapons

The fact of the matter is that guns AREN’T evil; they are used for good as much as they are used for evil.  The problem is that PEOPLE are evil.  If you’ve got yourself set to try to ban anything, please ban yourself.

The problem is that liberalism has so completely depraved society that more people than ever are genuinely evil.  Thanks to liberalism, man is now merely an animal, the mindless and amoral product of random chance evolution.  Thanks to liberalism, society now believes there is no soul and there is no God who created man in His own image and will one day hold man accountable for his conduct on earth with hell.  Thanks to liberalism, humans are now merely things that have no intrinsic value and which can therefore be exterminated by the tens of millions in the abortion mills.  Compare the twenty little children who were murdered last week with an assault weapon to the fifty-five million babies who had their entire lives and futures stolen from them with abortion and explain to me why you have no tears and no heart and no compassion for those fifty-five million innocent babies.  It is insane; and it is an insanity that has warped and depraved our culture.  Thanks to liberalism, not only have mothers become murderers of their own babies, but fatherhood is dead.  Just what is a “father”?  Biologically, he’s a man who conceived a child.  But under the demonic doctrine of abortion, there is no such thing; because whatever you want to call the fetus that was conceived between a man and a woman, it is NOT a child.  It is an inanimate and lifeless lump of goop which has no value and no rights as a human being.  If a “father” loves his child and wants to hold that child in his arms, his will is utterly irrelevant in our liberal abortion culture that celebrates a demonic feminism that hates children as some kind of parasite.  Fatherhood is irrelevant in this toxic product of liberalism; and you wonder why men refuse to stay around the non-human lumps of goop just because their mothers decided not to murder them after all?  Thanks to liberalism, the government has decided that a “family” is a completely meaningless and arbitrary category that can be redefined as liberals see fit: marriage is dead, having been depraved by homosexuality, and in the same way when two homosexual men can adopt a child and inflict their broken lives on that kid and call themselves a family, family simply becomes another meaningless convention that is no longer worth preserving.

Joseph Stalin said:

“One death is a tragedy; one million is a statistic.”

And American liberals – the true intellectual inheritors of Stalin’s big government as replacement of God – are now telling us that twenty deaths are a tragedy and fifty-five million deaths is just a statistic.

As John MacArthur rightly pointed out, the Democrat Platform today comes right out of Romans chapter one.  And thus the Democrat Party demands one thing: for the wrath of God to be revealed (Romans 1:18).

Abraham Lincoln ended his most famous speech with the following words:

… that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Thanks to liberalism, America is no longer a nation one God.

Thanks to liberalism, America is now a nation that deserves to perish from the earth.

And the selfsame same liberals who brought us to this point of perilous times are cynically exploiting the morality-free secular humanist vacuum they created.  They are exploiting the monsters they’ve created to pervert our culture with still more liberal solutions.

I think of modern American liberalism and I think of Chairman Mao at his very most ideological:

LEE EDWARDS, CHAIRMAN, VICTIMS OF COMMUNISM MEMORIAL FOUNDATION: In 1959 to 1961 was the so-called “great leap forward” which was actually a gigantic leap backwards in which he tried to collectivize and communize agriculture.

And they came to him after the first year and they said, “Chairman, five million people have died of famine.” He said, “No matter, keep going.” In the second year, they came back and they said, “Ten million Chinese have died.” He said, “No matter, continue.” The third year, 20 million Chinese have died. And he said finally, “Well, perhaps this is not the best idea that I’ve ever had.”

CHANG: When he was told that, you know, his people were dying of starvation, Mao said, “Educate the peasants to eat less. Thus they can benefit – they can fertilize the land.”

Only our liberals are seemingly pathologically incapable of ever experiencing that moment Mao finally saw where he finally said, “Well, perhaps this is not the best idea I’ve ever had.”  All of the ideas of American liberals are perfection; it is circumstances which just somehow happen to thwart them every single time.  Obama deceitfully promised four years of blessing under his regime; he has given us the precise opposite.  And all Obama has offered is blame and demagoguery and demonization and fearmongering to explain why his presidency has been a catastrophic failure and cancer.

Fifty-five million dead babies are excellent fertilizer, I suppose.

But it sure doesn’t appear that God is blessing our farmland as a result of out depraved wickedness.  The condition of our crops is now the worst since the government began keeping records in 1985.

We are now a nation of endless drought – with the withholding of rain being a key Old Testament sign that a nation has entered divine judgment.

We can be like the godless Soviet Union which before its collapse blamed its complete crop failure on seventy-two years of bad weather.  If you think that it’s inconceivable that American politicians could be as mindlessly incapable of understanding their role in the failure of their nation, realize that Obama has already followed that rhetorical tactic.

The night that Barack Obama and his demonic agenda were elected to the White House, I wrote “Obama Wins!  God Damn America!” And God has damned this perverted nation, indeed.

I think of Obama demonizing George Bush for “adding $4 trillion by his lonesome” over 8 years when this lying demonic demagogue has now added more than $6 trillion in merely four years.  I think of the Obama who demonized and slandered George Bush for trying to raise the debt ceiling who is now so incredibly deceitfully and hypocritically trying to slander Republicans for trying to in ANY WAY interfere with what he seems to believe is his messianic right to be “given the authority to raise the debt ceiling whenever he wants.”

And I lower my head in shame to think that this nation so wickedly voted to re-elect this lying, slandering hypocrite.

Meanwhile our actual debt has soared to well over $222 trillion and rose by $11 trillion just from last year alone.  And it is a FACT that the Democrat Party is responsible for over 99 percent of that staggering, insane, depraved, unpayable and unsustainable debt.

Obama has never led; he has merely found new ways to demagogue his political opponents and further and further divide America.  We’re about to fall off the fiscal cliff and Obama has completely failed to lead because he prefers that we DO go off the cliff so he can further demonize his opponents and politically benefit by further dividing America in order to seize another fractured piece of the electorate.  But that’s okay; Obama has a new tragedy that happened under his watch to exploit.  The mantra of fascism is “Never let a crisis go to waste.”

Christians are not supposed to hate their enemies, but let there be no mistake: liberals ARE our enemies.  Big government liberals of today are as much enemies of Jesus Christ as were the big government Romans who crucified Him and who thrust a spear through His heart while He hung on the cross.

Devastating NY Times Story Reveals Obama As An Arrogant And Divisive Blowhard Who Overestimates His Abilities And Stupidly Competes In Useless Trivialities

September 10, 2012

Update, 9/11/12: I’ve written about Obama’s divisiveness – in wild contrast to his hypocritical and cynical promises to “transcend the starkly red-and-blue politics of the last 15 years, end the partisan and ideological wars and build a new governing majority” – and on this day when we celebrate the unity of the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attack, it seems fitting to examine why any hope of unity went out the door with Obama’s presidency.

Two weeks – just TWO WEEKS – after Obama took office, Republicans (according to Bob Woodward’s new book) came ready to work with him.  The problem was that Obama wasn’t ready to work with THEM.  When Eric Cantor provided some excellent suggestions to the massive stimulus that Obama demanded, Obama shut him down by saying, “Elections have consequences and Eric, I won.”  Obama flat-out told Republicans he didn’t want to hear any of their ideas and that they weren’t going to be allowed to contribute.

Obama gave a speech just three weeks after taking office in  which he said:

“Don’t come to the table with the same tired arguments and worn ideas that helped to create this crisis,” he admonished in a speech.

Eric Cantor was simply amazed.  Obama had falsely won election on a promise of true hope and change for rising above partisan intransigence.  And he was being more partisan and more bullheaded than anybody.  Cantor reflected that Obama had EVERYTHING when he took office.  He had the love of the American people.  He had total Democrat control over the House for two full years.  He had filibuster-proof supermajority in the Senate for those two years.  He had an opposition party that was shocked and awed and disoriented and dismayed at the loss they had just taken.  Obama had all of that going for him.  And, in Cantor’s words, in Obama’s very first act as president, “he had unified and energized the losers.”

Obama told a lot of what we now know are documented lies to become president.  He promised he’d cut the deficit in half during his first four years, when instead he has TRIPLED IT.  He mocked George Bush as “irresponsible” and literally denounced Bush’s patriotism for adding $4 trillion to the debt in eight years; Obama will have added $6 trillion in his first four years when this term ends.  He voted against Bush’s debt ceiling increase on hyper-partisan grounds only to viciously denounce Republicans for voting the same way and on the same grounds that HE did when he was a Senator.  There are many similar examples.  But for all the lies he told, his most unforgivable lie was promising the American people that he would rise above political differences and heal the national divide when we now know that he not only never had any intention of doing so, but was in fact pathologically incapable of even trying.

I responded to a liberal who blamed the Obama failures on “Republican obstructionism.”  I provided just a few MAJOR examples of the Democrat obstructionism that Bush faced from Democrats who had even MORE control over the political process than the Republicans have had since 2010.  It is hypocritical to the extreme for those who never blamed DEMOCRAT OBSTRUCTIONISM to now blame Republicans for the very sort of obstructionism that they were cheering when Bush was president.  [End update]

Hey, with a few more stories like this, I might almost take the New York Times out of the bird cage and read it:

New York Times Proves Clint Eastwood Correct — Obama Is Lousy CEO

A Sunday New York Times front page story — New York Times! — might have killed President Obama’s re-election hopes.

The story is called “The Competitor in Chief — Obama Plays To Win, In Politics and Everything Else.” It is devastating.

With such a title, and from such a friendly organ, at first I thought Jodi Kantor’s piece would be a collection of Obama’s greatest political wins: His rapid rise in Illinois, his win over Hillary Clinton in the 2008 Democratic primaries, the passage of health care, and so on.

But the NYT piece is not about any of that. Rather, it is a deep look into the two outstanding flaws in Obama’s executive leadership:

1. How he vastly overrates his capabilities:

But even those loyal to Mr. Obama say that his quest for excellence can bleed into cockiness and that he tends to overestimate his capabilities. The cloistered nature of the White House amplifies those tendencies, said Matthew Dowd, a former adviser to President George W. Bush, adding that the same thing happened to his former boss. “There’s a reinforcing quality,” he said, a tendency for presidents to think, I’m the best at this.

2. How he spends extraordinary amounts of time and energy to compete in — trivialities.

For someone dealing with the world’s weightiest matters, Mr. Obama spends surprising energy perfecting even less consequential pursuits. He has played golf 104 times since becoming president, according to Mark Knoller of CBS News, who monitors his outings, and he asks superior players for tips that have helped lower his scores. He decompresses with card games on Air Force One, but players who do not concentrate risk a reprimand (“You’re not playing, you’re just gambling,” he once told Arun Chaudhary, his former videographer).

His idea of birthday relaxation is competing in an Olympic-style athletic tournament with friends, keeping close score. The 2009 version ended with a bowling event. Guess who won, despite his history of embarrassingly low scores? The president, it turned out, had been practicing in the White House alley.

Kantor’s piece is full of examples of Obama’s odd need to dominate his peers in everything from bowling, cards, golf, basketball, and golf (104 times in his presidency). Bear in mind, Obama doesn’t just robustly compete. The leader of the free world spends many hours practicing these trivial pursuits behind the scenes. Combine this weirdly wasted time with a consistent overestimation of his capabilities, and the result is, according to NYT’s Kantor:

He may not always be as good at everything as he thinks, including politics. While Mr. Obama has given himself high grades for his tenure in the White House — including a “solid B-plus” for his first year — many voters don’t agree, citing everything from his handling of the economy to his unfulfilled pledge that he would be able to unite Washington to his claim that he would achieve Israeli-Palestinian peace.

Those were not the only times Mr. Obama may have overestimated himself: he has also had a habit of warning new hires that he would be able to do their jobs better than they could.

“I think that I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters,” Mr. Obama told Patrick Gaspard, his political director, at the start of the 2008 campaign, according to The New Yorker. “I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that I’m going to think I’m a better political director than my political director.”

Though he never ran a large organization before becoming president, he initially dismissed internal concerns about management and ended up with a factionalized White House and a fuzzier decision-making process than many top aides wanted.

Kantor’s portrait of Obama is stunning. It paints a picture of a CEO who is unfocused and lost.

Imagine, for a minute, that you are on the board of directors of a company. You have a CEO who is not meeting his numbers and who is suffering a declining popularity with his customers. You want to help this CEO recover, but then you learn he doesn’t want your help. He is smarter than you and eager to tell you this. Confidence or misplaced arrogance? You’re not sure at first. If the company was performing well, you’d ignore it. But the company is performing poorly, so you can’t.

With some digging, you learn, to your horror, that the troubled CEO spends a lot of time on — what the hell? — bowling? Golf? Three point shots? While the company is going south?

What do you do? You fire that CEO. Clint Eastwood was right. You let the guy go.

So Obama is an arrogant blowhard who fails or refuses to understand his own limitations and has surrounded himself with fawning yes men and women who will agree with whatever they think he wants them to agree with.  And Obama also has a pathological need to win even at the smallest and most trivial things.

That’s just not the kind of guy you want leading your country.

That attitude is responsible for why America’s credit got downgraded and we couldn’t make a big deal when we really needed one:

Bob Woodward Book: Debt Deal Collapse Led to ‘Pure Fury’ From President Obama
By RICK KLEIN
Sept. 05 2012

An explosive mix of dysfunction, miscommunication, and misunderstandings inside and outside the White House led to the collapse of a historic spending and debt deal that President Obama and House Speaker John Boehnerwere on the verge of reaching last summer, according to revelations in author Bob Woodward’s latest book.

The book, “The Price of Politics,” on sale Sept. 11, 2012, shows how close the president and the House speaker were to defying Washington odds and establishing a spending framework that included both new revenues and major changes to long-sacred entitlement programs. “The Price of Politics” examines the struggles between Obama and the Congress for the three and a half years, between 2009 and the summer of 2012. It offers exclusive behind the scenes access to what the President and the Republicans did, or rather failed to do.

But at one critical juncture, with an agreement tantalizingly close, Obama pressed Boehner for additional taxes as part of a final deal — a miscalculation, in retrospect, given how far the House speaker felt he’d already gone.

The president called three times to speak with Boehner about his latest offer, according to Woodward. But the speaker didn’t return the president’s phone call for most of an agonizing day, in what Woodward calls a “monumental communications lapse” between two of the most powerful men in the country.

When Boehner finally did call back, he jettisoned the entire deal. Obama lost his famous cool, according to Woodward, with a “flash of pure fury” coming from the president; one staffer in the room said Obama gripped the phone so tightly he thought he would break it.

“He was spewing coals,” Boehner told Woodward, in what is described as a borderline “presidential tirade.”

“He was pissed…. He wasn’t going to get a damn dime more out of me. He knew how far out on a limb I was. But he was hot. It was clear to me that coming to an agreement with him was not going to happen, and that I had to go to Plan B.”

Accounts of the final proposal that led to the deal’s collapse continue to differ sharply. The president says he was merely raising the possibility of putting more revenue into the package, while Boehner maintains that the president needed $400 billion more, despite an earlier agreement of no more than $800 billion in total revenue, derived through tax reform.

Obama and his aides argue that the House speaker backed away from a deal because he couldn’t stand the political heat inside his own party – or even, perhaps, get the votes to pass the compromise. They say he took the president’s proposal for more revenue as an excuse to pull out of talks altogether.

“I was pretty angry,” the president told Woodward about the breakdown in negotiations. “There’s no doubt I thought it was profoundly irresponsible, at that stage, not to call me back immediately and let me know what was going on.”

The failure of Obama to connect with Boehner was vaguely reminiscent of another phone call late in the evening of Election Day 2010, after it became clear that the Republicans would take control of the House, making Boehner Speaker of the House.

Nobody in the Obama orbit could even find the soon-to-be-speaker’s phone number, Woodward reports. A Democratic Party aide finally secured it through a friend so the president could offer congratulations.

While questions persist about whether any grand bargain reached by the principals could have actually passed in the Tea Party-dominated Congress, Woodward issues a harsh judgment on White House and congressional leaders for failing to act boldly at a moment of crisis. Particular blame falls on the president.

“It was increasingly clear that no one was running Washington. That was trouble for everyone, but especially for Obama,” Woodward writes.

That was what John Boehner was saying all along.  He and Obama had a deal.  All Obama had to do was agree to the deal he’d already made.  But to Obama it wasn’t just two men trying to do what was best for America; it was a competition.  And Obama wanted to win.  So he tried to force one more concession out of Boeher.  And Obama blew up the deal and America lost.

Here’s a little more to reveal this ugly, narcissistic side to Obama:

WASHINGTON — Lawmakers and the White House had what nearly every party is describing as a “tough” and “testy” meeting on the debt ceiling Wednesday afternoon, culminating in a stormy exchange between President Barack Obama and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.).

It was the fifth straight day of talks, but the first in which attendees, speaking on background, were willing to admit that steps were taken backwards. According to multiple sources, disagreements surfaced early, in the middle and at the end of the nearly two-hour talks. At issue was Cantor’s repeated push to do a short-term resolution and Obama’s insistence that he would not accept one.

“Eric, don’t call my bluff. I’m going to the American people on this,” the president said, according to both Cantor and another attendee. “This process is confirming what the American people think is the worst about Washington: that everyone is more interested in posturing, political positioning, and protecting their base, than in resolving real problems.”

Cantor, speaking to reporters after the meeting, said that the president “abruptly” walked off after offering his scolding.

[…]

“I have reached the point where I say enough,” Obama concluded, according to Reuters. “Would Ronald Reagan be sitting here? I’ve reached my limit. This may bring my presidency down, but I will not yield on this.”

And it should have brought Obama’s presidency down.  That short term deal Cantor wanted would have saved America’s triple A credit rating.

So, a few things on all this.  First of all, there isn’t a conservative on the planet who needs or wants a damn scolding from Obama.  You don’t scold people you’re negotiating with if you actually want to get anwhere with them.  Second, history has already proven Obama definitely ISN’T Ronald Reagan.  Ronald Reagan is the greatest president in the history of America, according to the American people; while Barack Obama is an arrogant chump who thinks he’s about 50,000 times greater than he is.  And third, the fact that Obama by his own description was willing to bring his entire presidency down just to not budge to prove some point or win some contest pretty much confirms all of what is written above.

Barack Obama is a narcissist according to a psychologist who is an expert on the field of narcissism.  He simply has no business whatsoever being president.  As Clint Eastwood said, it’s time to let him go.

One of the reasons I got into blogging was to preserve a record as to just what a total CHUMP Obama is.  So, knowing that the New York Times is great at purging stories that don’t favor liberals, I’d better grab it while it’s still around to be grabbed.  Here’s the NY Times piece.  Let me repeat that; here’s a piece from the New York Times:

September 2, 2012
The Competitor in Chief
By JODI KANTOR

As Election Day approaches, President Obamais sharing a few important things about himself. He has mentioned more than once in recent weeks that he cooks “a really mean chili.” He has impressive musical pitch, he told an Iowa audience. He is “a surprisingly good pool player,” he informed an interviewer — not to mention (though he does) a doodler of unusual skill.

All in all, he joked at a recent New York fund-raiser with several famous basketball players in attendance, “it is very rare that I come to an event where I’m like the fifth or sixth most interesting person.”

Four years ago, Barack Obama seemed as if he might be a deliberate professor of a leader, maybe with a touch of Hawaiian mellowness. He has also turned out to be a voraciously competitive perfectionist. Aides and friends say so in interviews, but Mr. Obama’s own words of praise and derision say it best: he is a perpetually aspiring overachiever, often grading himself and others with report-card terms like “outstanding” or “remedial course” (as in: Republicans need one).

As he faces off with Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential nominee, Mr. Obama’s will to win — and fear of losing — is in overdrive. He is cramming for debates against an opponent he has called “ineffective,” raising money at a frantic pace to narrow the gap with Mr. Romney and embracing the do-anything-it-takes tactics of an increasingly contentious campaign.

Even by the standards of the political world, Mr. Obama’s obsession with virtuosity and proving himself the best are remarkable, those close to him say. (Critics call it arrogance.) More than a tic, friends and aides say, it is a core part of his worldview, formed as an outsider child who grew up to defy others’ views of the limits of his abilities. When he speaks to students, he almost always emphasizes living up to their potential.

“He has a general philosophy that whatever he does, he’s going to do the very best he can do,” Marty Nesbitt, a close friend, said in an interview.

Mr. Obama’s aides point to the seriousness he brings to the tasks of the presidency — how he virtually never shows up for a meeting unprepared, say, or how he quickly synthesizes complicated material. When Mr. Obama was derided as an insufferable overachiever in an early political race, some of his friends were infuriated; to them, he was revising negative preconceptions of what a black man could achieve.

But even those loyal to Mr. Obama say that his quest for excellence can bleed into cockiness and that he tends to overestimate his capabilities. The cloistered nature of the White House amplifies those tendencies, said Matthew Dowd, a former adviser to President George W. Bush, adding that the same thing happened to his former boss. “There’s a reinforcing quality,” he said, a tendency for presidents to think, I’m the best at this.

And though Mr. Obama craves high grades from the electorate and from history, he is in a virtual dead heat with Mr. Romney in national polls, the political equivalent of school progress reports.

For someone dealing with the world’s weightiest matters, Mr. Obama spends surprising energy perfecting even less consequential pursuits. He has played golf 104 times since becoming president, according to Mark Knoller of CBS News, who monitors his outings, and he asks superior players for tips that have helped lower his scores. He decompresses with card games on Air Force One, but players who do not concentrate risk a reprimand (“You’re not playing, you’re just gambling,” he once told Arun Chaudhary, his former videographer).

His idea of birthday relaxation is competing in an Olympic-style athletic tournament with friends, keeping close score. The 2009 version ended with a bowling event. Guess who won, despite his history of embarrassingly low scores? The president, it turned out, had been practicing in the White House alley.

When he reads a book to children at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll, Mr. Obama seems incapable of just flipping open a volume and reading. In 2010, he began by announcing that he would perform “the best rendition ever” of “Green Eggs and Ham,” ripping into his Sam-I-Ams with unusual conviction. Two years later at the same event, he read “Where the Wild Things Are” with even more animation, roooooaring his terrible roar and gnaaaaashing his terrible teeth. By the time he got to the wild rumpus, he was howling so loudly that Bo, the first dog, joined in.

“He’s shooting for a Tony,” Mr. Chaudhary joked. (He has already won a Grammy, in 2006, for his reading of his memoir, “Dreams From My Father” — not because he was a natural, said Brian Smith, the producer, but because he paused so many times to polish his performance.)

Asked if there was anything at which the president allowed himself to just flat-out fail, Mr. Nesbitt gave a long pause. “If he picks up something new, at first he’s not good, but he’ll work until he gets better,” he said.

Mr. Obama’s fixation on prowess can get him into trouble. Not everyone wants to be graded by him, certainly not Republicans. Mr. Dowd, the former Bush adviser, said he admired Mr. Obama, but added, “Nobody likes to be in the room with someone who thinks they’re the smartest person in the room.”

Even some Democrats in Washington say they have been irritated by his tips on topics ranging from the best way to shake hands on the trail (really look voters in the eye, he has instructed) to writing well (“You have to think three or four sentences ahead,” he told one reluctant pupil).

For another, he may notalways be as good at everything as he thinks, including politics. While Mr. Obama has given himself high grades for his tenure in the White House — including a “solid B-plus” for his first year — many voters don’t agree, citing everything from his handling of the economy to his unfulfilled pledge that he would be able to unite Washington to his claim that he would achieve Israeli-Palestinian peace.

Those were not the only times Mr. Obama may have overestimated himself: he has also had a habit of warning new hires that he would be able to do their jobs better than they could.

“I think that I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters,” Mr. Obama told Patrick Gaspard, his political director, at the start of the 2008 campaign, according to The New Yorker. “I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that I’m going to think I’m a better political director than my political director.”

Though he never ran a large organization before becoming president, he initially dismissed internal concerns about management and ended up with a factionalized White House and a fuzzier decision-making process than many top aides wanted.

Now Mr. Obama is in the climactic contest of his career, about to receive the ultimate judgment on his performance from the American people. It is a moment, aides say, he has been craving: during some of the darker days of his tenure, he told them that he wanted the country to evaluate him not in isolation, but in contrast to the Republican alternative. The tough, often successful attacks from the right have hardened and fueled him, aides say, driving him to prove that “we’re right and we’re better,” as one ally put it.

In 2008, he said he wanted to change the nature of politics and keep governing separate from campaigning; since then, he has overhauled his White House to prepare for the re-election bid and has run tit-for-tat negative ads, some of which, like some run by his opponent, have been criticized by media truth squads for inaccuracies.

He offers his share of verbal jabs at his rival, too.

As far back as 2008, Mr. Obama’s assessment of Mr. Romney was scathing. On the day Mr. Romney dropped out of that presidential race, Mr. Obama told reporters that the former governor was a weak candidate who made “poorly thought out” comments (the compulsive grader again). He savored Mr. Romney’s stumbles in the Republican primaries this time around, an adviser said, professing wonder that it took him so long to lock up the nomination.

This February, in an otherwise placid meeting with Democratic governors — routine policy questions, routine presidential replies — Gov. Brian Schweitzer of Montana asked Mr. Obama if he had what it took to win the 2012 race.

For a moment Mr. Obama looked annoyed, a White House aide said, as if he thought Mr. Schweitzer was underestimating him. Then he came alive. “Holy mackerel, he lit up,” Mr. Schweitzer said in an interview. “It was like a light switch coming on.”

No matter what moves Mr. Romney made, the president said, he and his team were going to cut him off and block him at every turn. “We’re the Miami Heat, and he’s Jeremy Lin,” Mr. Obama said, according to the aide.

Since then, Mr. Obama has been working at a furious pace, headlining three times as many fund-raisers as George W. Bush did during his 2004 re-election campaign, according to Mr. Knoller.

When local campaign staff members ask him what they need to do better, he talks about himself instead. “I need to be working harder,” he recently told one state-level aide.

He recently began preparing for the presidential debates, reading up on Mr. Romney and his positions. One danger is that he could sound grudging or smug by indulging in his habit of scoring others (as in, “You’re likable enough, Hillary,” one of his worst debate moments from 2008). As he slashes into Mr. Romney’s arguments, he sometimes cannot help letting crowds know what he thinks of his rival’s political skills.

“When a woman right here in Iowa shared the story of her financial struggles, he gave her an answer out of an economics textbook,” he said about Mr. Romney in May, his tone incredulous.

Though Mr. Obama quizzes his team on all aspects of the campaign, he is concentrating most on the rhetorical challenge of making a case for a second term. He has worked on making his stump speech tighter, less defensive and more forward-looking in recent months, and he is still testing and discarding lines. “That’s the meat of the campaign, that’s where his focus lies,” said David Axelrod, his chief strategist.

Not only do the White House, the Supreme Court and a budgetary crisis hang in the balance, but so does a national judgment on whether Mr. Obama’s agenda was a good idea in the first place. So perhaps it is not surprising that he cites not just his record, but also every other accomplishment he can think of.

Then again, he is just as competitive in private, when there is little or nothing at stake. At one of his farewell meetings for White House interns, Mr. Obama dispensed some life advice.

“When you all have kids, it’s important to let them win,” he said with a smile. “Until they’re a year old. Then start winning.”

Kitty Bennett contributed research.

If America really wants to “start winning,” it will rid its national ass of Obama.

Obama Demands $1.2 Trillion Debt Ceiling Extension – Making Him Responsible For $6.2 Trillion In Just Three Years

January 13, 2012

This is basically a reprint of an article I wrote a couple of weeks ago (available here).  But given that Obama floated the idea that he would ask for this third trillion-plus dollar debt ceiling extension (Obama is now responsible for the three highest debt extensions in the history of the entire human race), then decided to hold off his request, then decided to make it again, it seems like the thing to do to blast him as a spend-insane fool all over again.

Here are Obama’s own demagogic and frankly demonic words about George Bush:

“The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents – #43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.”

And:

The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”

America certainly deserves better than Barack Obama.  And I read these demonizing words from this demagogue who has never ONCE accepted personal responsibility for the spectacular failure of his policies and just laugh with contempt at the way he pontificated about how “leadership means ‘the buck stops here.'”

Obama is now responsible for $6.2 trillion in debt in less than one term; versus George Bush whom Obama demonized for being responsible for $4 trillion over EIGHT FULL YEARS.

Why doesn’t Obama resign? Because in his own words “Americans deserve better” than him.

$30,000 for every man, woman and child? Boy, that would seem really bad. Unless the worst president in the history of the human race didn’t come along and make it over $50,000 for every man, woman and child.

Under Obama, the debt is nearly $15.2 trillion. But that aint nothing: because Barry Hussein is demanding yet another debt ceiling hike for yet another $1.2 trillion:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The White House plans to ask Congress by the end of the week for an increase in the government’s debt ceiling to allow the United States to pay its bills on time, according to a senior Treasury Department official on Tuesday.

[…]

The debt limit currently stands at $15.194 trillion and would increase to $16.394 trillion with the request.

Hmm. $9 trillion…. $16 trillion. Which one is a more irresponsible, unpatriotic failure of leadership??? Gosh, I vote Democrat so I’m just too…. insane … and stupid… to know…

Feeling…. weak… Must… blame… Bush…

And there: now we Democrats – having healed ourselves – feel much better now. Because that “blame Bush” pill cures everything. Except reality. But why should we care about a silly thing like that?

If there was so much as a shred of honesty or decency in Barack Obama, in the Democrat Party, or in anyone who votes for the Democrat Party, they would do the only honorable thing and just go away and leave decent Americans alone.

I hear North Korea is real nice. And it’s a “People’s republic,” too. With a brand spanking new dear leader messiah. You libs will like it just fine.

There’s just nothing like the economic “success” of leftism.

Someone commenting on the latest debt ceiling hike (which now makes Obama responsible for the THREE highest debt celing hikes in the history of the entire human race) asked a question. And then he answered it:

“Where does this end? When does this stop? I guess when there is no more money to take from us and then the riots start.”

Looking at the vile crap that went on in Wisconsin and then the even MORE vile crap that took place all over the country in the Occupy riots, it looks like we’re already there…

Another made an even sadder observation:

Greece. Italy. Spain. America. Pathetic.

We voted to collapse when we voted for Obama; and we are getting EXACTLY what we voted for.

As of January 13, 2012, Democrats will demonstrate that they are the Party of genuine depravity and utterly reckless stupidity in America having gone 988 days without bothering to pass ANY budget WHATSOEVER.  They are the reckless party of genuine evil in America.  And they will destroy America unless the American people rise up and stop them.

Obama Says Bush Increasing Debt $4 Trillion In 8 Years Was Irresponsible And Unpatriotic. So Obama Increasing Debt By $6 Trillion In 3 Years Is WHAT?

December 29, 2011

Here are Obama’s own demagogic and frankly demonic words:

“The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents – #43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.”

And:

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”

Why doesn’t Obama resign?  Because in his own words “Americans deserve better” than him.

$30,000 for every man, woman and child?  Boy, that would seem really bad.  Unless the worst president in the history of the human race didn’t come along and make it over $50,000 for every man, woman and child.

Under Obama, the debt is nearly $15.2 trillion.  But that aint nothing: because Barry Hussein is demanding yet another debt ceiling hike for yet another $1.2 trillion:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The White House plans to ask Congress by the end of the week for an increase in the government’s debt ceiling to allow the United States to pay its bills on time, according to a senior Treasury Department official on Tuesday.

[…]

The debt limit currently stands at $15.194 trillion and would increase to $16.394 trillion with the request.

Hmm.  $9 trillion…. $16 trillion.  Which one is a more irresponsible, unpatriotic failure of leadership???  Gosh, I vote Democrat so I’m just too…. insane … and stupid… to know…

Feeling…. weak…  Must… blame… Bush…

And there: now we Democrats – having healed ourselves – feel much better now.  Because that “blame Bush” pill cures everything.  Except reality.  But why should we care about that?

If there was so much as a shred of honesty or decency in Barack Obama, in the Democrat Party, or in anyone who votes for the Democrat Party, they would do the only honorable thing and just go away and leave decent Americans alone.

I hear North Korea is real nice.  And it’s a “People’s republic,” too.  With a brand spanking new dear leader messiah.  You libs will like it just fine.

Someone commenting on the latest debt ceiling hike (which now makes Obama responsible for the THREE highest debt celing hikes in the history of the entire human race) asked a question.  And then he answered it:

“Where does this end? When does this stop? I guess when there is no more money to take from us and then the riots start.”

Looking at the vile crap that went on in Wisconsin and then the even MORE vile crap that took place all over the country in the Occupy riots, it looks like we’re already there…

Another made an even sadder observation:

Greece. Italy. Spain. America. Pathetic.

We voted to collapse when we voted for Obama; and we are getting EXACTLY what we voted for.

On December 31 of this year, Democrats will demonstrate that they are the Party of genuine depravity and utterly reckless stupidity in America having gone 975 days without bothering to pass ANY budget WHATSOEVER.

Worst Hypocrite Who Ever Lived To Ask For Yet ANOTHER Trillion-Plus Dollar Debt Ceiling Hike

December 28, 2011

Obama then:

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”

Obama then:

“The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents – #43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.”

And then there’s the Obama of now.  There’s the president who demonized his predecessor in a vicious and hateful way who has since demanded the three highest debt ceiling increases in the history of the entire human race.

Obama is demanding yet another debt ceiling hike – this one to the tune of $1.2 trillion.  Because he is determined to spend until our children’s children’s children’s children’s children’s children’s children’s children are still paying off his debts.  Because that is liberalism in a nutshell: destroy America and destroy any chance of a future America ever coming back.

Democrats seem to think that if America even has so much as a thousand-to-one longshot chance of having a future, they haven’t done their job.

It’s as if in the Democrat Party the Soviet Union stabbed us in the heart from the grave.  The Communist Party USA sings Obama’s praises as “one of us!” while the former U.S.S.R. mouthpiece Pravda openly mocks Obama’s America as having a fervent desire to commit national suicide.

The true “Da, Comrade!” Party of socialism in America is the Democrat Party.  And that is simply a documented fact.

And, of course, if Republicans try to do the right thing and stand up against the most completely-out-of-control government in human history, they will be demonized into submission by the Democrat-media complex.  You don’t dare do the right thing in God damn America anymore; the American people are too stupid and too evil and too bent on going the way of the Dodo bird.

Which is why the beast is coming.

Nancy Pelosi So Crammed Full Of Hypocrisy Even Liberal Comic Jon Stewart Can’t Take It Anymore

November 14, 2011

Jon Stewart is a doctrinaire liberal down the line.  His problem is that he’s in a line of work that sometimes forces him to find what is clearly utterly ridiculous even among his own.

There is NOBODY who could claim that Jon Stewart is a “conservative” or a “Republican.”  If he can’t stand Nancy Pelosi’s abject hypocrisy, you can pretty much take it to the bank that Nancy Pelosi’s hypocrisy is utterly vile beyond belief.

Pelosi drives even Jon Stewart crazy
by Joel Gehrke Commentary Staff Writer
November 11, 2011

Former House Speaker and current Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., attacked Republicans for their opposition to debt ceiling increases, but defended President Obama for voting against a debt-ceiling increase when he was in the Senate, during an interview with Jon Stewart. Her effort to reconcile the two positions drove The Daily Show host to distraction. You can see the transcript and video below.

Pelosi: “We didn’t say, ‘[Bush] amassed this debt, we’re not lifting the debt ceiling,’ because we have to honor the full faith and credit of our country. Republicans with this president, and this president only, exacted upon him that $1.2 trillion [spending cut].

JS: “Well, there were — you know, President Obama himself voted against lifting the debt ceiling [as a Senator].”

Pelosi: “That’s okay, you can lift it, but you can’t obstruct it.”

JS: “No, he voted against lifting it.”

Pelosi: “You can vote against it. You can vote against lifting it.”

JS: “But he said he voted against lifting it because he knew the other people would lift it.”

Pelosi: “That’s right. That’s right. And I say to my members, ‘you can vote anyway you want, but we’re not going to obstruct [the debt-ceiling increase].’ It’s about if you’re going to obstruct.”

JS: “So its okay to do it for political reasons, but not for principle.”

Pelosi: “No, you have to vote what you believe.”

JS: “As long as it doesn’t actually obstruct it.”

Pelosi: “Well, other people who may believe differently can take care of that.”

[Editor’s note: at this point, Jon Stewart put his hand over his face]

Pelosi: “I honestly believe that people vote what they believe. And at that given time, with that set of facts, they don’t want to put their imprimatur on it. They had a different responsibility than I had as Speaker of the House. I had to get it passed. Others had the luxury of expressing their views, but I had get it passed, had to have enough votes to get it passed.”

It has now been 928 days since the Democrats passed any kind of a budget whatsoever.  These people are incompetent fools in addition to being hypocrites and demagogues.

Tipping Point Crossed: US Borrowing Exceeds 100% Of Entire U.S. Gross Domestic Product

August 4, 2011

The United States of America probably just passed a point of no return.

We now officially owe more than the entire annual output of 307 million Americans.

US borrowing tops 100% of GDP: Treasury
AFP – 8/3/2011

US debt shot up $238 billion to reach 100 percent of gross domestic project after the government’s debt ceiling was lifted, Treasury figures showed Wednesday.
 
Treasury borrowing jumped Tuesday, the data showed, immediately after President Barack Obama signed into law an increase in the debt ceiling as the country’s spending commitments reached a breaking point and it threatened to default on its debt.
 
The new borrowing took total public debt to $14.58 trillion, over end-2010 GDP of $14.53 trillion, and putting it in a league with highly indebted countries like Italy and Belgium.
 
Public debt subject to the official debt limit — a slightly tighter definition — was $14.53 trillion as of the end of Tuesday, rising from the previous official cap of $14.29 trillion a day earlier.
 
Treasury had used extraordinary measures to hold under the $14.29 trillion cap since reaching it on May 16, while politicians battled over it and over addressing the country’s bloating deficit.
 
The official limit was hiked $400 billion on Tuesday and will be increased in stages over the next 18 months.
 
The last time US debt topped the size of its annual economy was in 1947 just after World War II. By 1981 it had fallen to 32.5 percent.
 
Ratings agencies have warned the country to reduce its debt-to-GDP ratio quickly or facing losing its coveted AAA debt rating.
 
Moody’s said Tuesday that the government needed to stabilize the ratio at 73 percent by 2015 “to ensure that the long-run fiscal trajectory remains compatible with a AAA rating.”

And that’s really not the one-fourteenth of it.

America doesn’t owe $14.5 trillion; it owes more like $200 trillion:

The scary real U.S. government debt
Wednesday, October 27, 2010
NEIL REYNOLDS

Boston University economist Laurence Kotlikoff says U.S. government debt is not $13.5-trillion (U.S.), which is 60 per cent of current gross domestic product, as global investors and American taxpayers think, but rather 14-fold higher: $200-trillion – 840 per cent of current GDP. “Let’s get real,” Prof. Kotlikoff says. “The U.S. is bankrupt.”

Writing in the September issue of Finance and Development, a journal of the International Monetary Fund, Prof. Kotlikoff says the IMF itself has quietly confirmed that the U.S. is in terrible fiscal trouble – far worse than the Washington-based lender of last resort has previously acknowledged. “The U.S. fiscal gap is huge,” the IMF asserted in a June report. “Closing the fiscal gap requires a permanent annual fiscal adjustment equal to about 14 per cent of U.S. GDP.”

This sum is equal to all current U.S. federal taxes combined. The consequences of the IMF’s fiscal fix, a doubling of federal taxes in perpetuity, would be appalling – and possibly worse than appalling.

Prof. Kotlikoff says: “The IMF is saying that, to close this fiscal gap [by taxation], would require an immediate and permanent doubling of our personal income taxes, our corporate taxes and all other federal taxes.

“America’s fiscal gap is enormous – so massive that closing it appears impossible without immediate and radical reforms to its health care, tax and Social Security systems – as well as military and other discretionary spending cuts.”

[…]

At this point, it is really only a matter of time before this most selfish, depraved and vile of all generations that elected the most evil president in its nations history collapses on top of its children.

Republicans most certainly did try – and will continue to try – to keep this nation from slitting its collectivist throat and collapsing.  But the demonic Democrat Party demonized them at every turn, and the demonization takes its toll.  The American people don’t support doing the right thing, the necessary thing.  They have stage four soul cancer and they want cotton candy rather than chemotherapy.

The Democrat Party is the party of destruction.  We are less than five years away from Medicare going bankrupt.  But what do they do?  They demonize any attempt to save the system, and essentially demand that the system collapse so that it can help no one.  And they do that because they know that the people are too stupid to know the truth and too depraved to have any desire of bothering to want to find out.  Republicans propose solutions; democrats lie and fearmonger and demonize Republicans, and stupid and depraved people believe the poisonous propaganda.

And then Republicans buckle and cave.

And this has happened over and over again while America races along on the fast track to suicide and hell.

One of the facts that has been pointed out many times is that America is not in Bible prophecy.  I used to wonder why.  Now I know the answer: because America won’t exist in a very short time.  Demonic liberals will collapse this nation – in a process that started with FDR’s incredibly lethal and incredibly infectious policies – and there will be no United States of America to BE in the last days.  There will only be an insignificant banana republic – which will exist as the laughingstock of the world – where America used to be.

Democrats couldn’t care less if America isn’t in Bible prophecy because they neither honor God or His Word (see my response to Obama’s mocking and distortion of the Word of God here, fwiw).  And as a result of Democrat ignorance and hatred of the Bible, we are even now contributing significantly to the coming of the Antichrist and the last days that we ourselves won’t survive to witness.  Liberals have been attacking our Christian foundations for over one hundred years in their effort to impose their utopian socialist schemes and we are losing our liberty at a frenetic pace as a result. Without the self-evident truth and its corresponding God-given rights that the left long ago rejected, all we have is the tyranny of powerful elites who become self-appointed dictators who get to decide what’s true and what is politically incorrect, who wins and who loses and who is allowed to be free.  Not only has the socialism that the American left embraces failed every single time it has every been tried everywhere on the planet, but in most cases it has led to an unparalleled crushing of the human spirit.

The tragedy is that the disaster that will surely soon overtake America will have been the most foreseeable and the most preventable one to ever overtake a civilization in the history of the human race.  Anyone with a mind, a memory and a conscience can see what is about to happen; but in the future, just as there was in 2008, there will be enough depraved Americans to tip the scale for the sweet-sounding policies that will result in America’s decline, destruction and death.

This is God damn America.  And God damn America deserves to die, and die it surely will.

We might be able to shrug off the cancer of liberalism for a short time and prolong the life of our nation.  But liberalism is a cancer of the soul, and ultimately the cancer of liberalism will kill America.

And the line that we just crossed as a nation with barely so much as a “ho-hum” is a disastrous line to cross, indeed.
