Obama Administration Demanded Police Not Be Allowed To Enforce The Law In Order To Help Its Fascist Occupy Wall Street Allies

August 8, 2012

Question: what does the American justice system stand for?

The answer that ought to be true: the justice system is the means by which all Americans are treated equally and fairly.  There is one law that all Americans – regardless of income, class, race, religion, etc. – are all held to and judged by.

What does the American justice system mean according to Barack Obama?

It is the means by which Obama can reward his friends and punish his enemies.  It’s the means by which Obama can say that “justice” means instructing his Justice Department to “Never bring a lawsuit against a black.” 

Read the following about the conduct of the president who actually once said: “‘We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us“:

Obama White House – Tells Law Enforcement to “Stand Down” and Not Enforce the Law Against Occupy Protestors According to Records Uncovered by Judicial Watch
August 07, 2012

(Washington, DC)Judicial Watch announced today that it has obtained records from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) indicating that the General Services Administration (GSA), with the blessing of the Obama White House, instructed law enforcement officers to “stand down” and not arrest “Occupy Portland” protestors who were in violation of the law.

The records, obtained pursuant to a November 11, 2011, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, include internal DHS correspondence. On November 6, 2011, an e-mail exchange between DHS/National Protection and Programs Directorate Chief of Staff Caitlin Durkovich and GSA Public Buildings Service Commissioner Robert Peck (who has since been fired) specifically related to Occupy Portland protests taking place on federal property in Portland:

I am sorry to be emailing you on a Sunday night, but wanted to let you know our Press Shop has received a couple of calls from Portland media outlets about a group of 11 protesters who again set up camp at Terry Shrunk Plaza in Portland last night. They have chained themselves to a large drum filled with concrete. GSA controls the permits and has asked FPS [Federal Protective Services] not to enforce the curfew at park and the prohibition on overnight encampments. Reporters have asked if we will be arresting the protestors as FPS did last week.

Our FPS Commander in Portland says they are standing down and following GSA’s request to only intervene if there is a threat to public safety.

Peck responds:

Caitlin: yes, that is our position; it’s been vetted with our Administrator and Michael Robertson, our chief of staff, and we have communicated with the WH [White House], which has afforded us the discretion to fashion our approach to Occupy issues…The arrests last week were carried out despite our request that the protesters be allowed to remain and to camp overnight…

Occupy Portland is part of the Occupy Wall Street movement, which has been beset with accusations of “crimes and dangerous behavior” during its protests.

According to the Oregonian, the week before this email exchange, on October 30, 2011, “Twenty-five Occupy Portland demonstrators were arrested…after refusing to leave Jamison Square. The arrests capped an intense hours-long standoff between police and dozens of protesters who refused to leave the Pearl District park after it was declared closed at midnight. Officers, some in riot gear and others on horses, faced off with protesters who remained in the square, despite being ordered to leave.” The protestors were reportedly arrested on accusations of “trespassing, interfering with a police officer and disorderly conduct for the noise complaints from neighbors.”

Robert Peck was at the center of a scandal involving the GSA in 2010, where the agency spent $823,000 on a lavish Las Vegas “training conference” that featured a clown, a mind reader and a $31,208 reception. Peck was fired as a result of the incident. Peck, who has donated thousands of dollars to Democrat candidates, including Barack Obama, was previously implicated in an unrelated GSA scandal for reportedly brokering a controversial lease deal for a Democratic donor and friend of former Vice President Al Gore. Per The Washington Examiner’s Mark Tapscott: “In Peck’s first go-round at GSA, controversy was sparked when it was learned that excessively high rent was being paid by the FCC to the owner of a building who also happened to be a Democratic donor. Peck was the official who made the deal possible.”

Peck was deposed by Judicial Watch today in a separate lawsuit on behalf of Linda Shenwick, a GSA whistleblower who Peck and others allegedly retaliated against because of Ms. Shenwick’s opposition to wasteful spending, such as parties, that have now caused so much controversy.

“We now have a new GSA scandal – one that involves the Obama White House,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These documents clearly show that federal agencies colluded with the Obama White House to allow the Occupy Wall Street protestors to violate the law with impunity. These documents tell us that the GSA and DHS can’t be relied upon to protect federal workers or property.”

You might read through those article titles of mine and say, “Dang, this guy says ‘fascist’ a lot.”  And I most surely do.  But here’s the damn thing: I keep calling Obama and the left “fascist” BECAUSE THEY KEEP ACTING LIKE FASCISTSSee this for what they were doing over just seven days last week.

And then realize what Obama’s doing here.  If this group had been the Tea Party, do you think Obama would have demanded that they be allowed to break the law???  Anybody show me a case in which Obama interfered to keep Tea Party protesters from being arrested?  Anybody?  Hello?  Is that the sound of crickets I keep hearing?  Anybody?

As of August 2 of this year, the vile Occupy Wall Street movement was involved in at least 7,385 documented arrests.  Versus ZERO for the Tea Party that Obama demonized.  These arrests have included several instances of attempted terrorist attacks.

And Obama is directly connected to this violent, fascist movement.  As his actions discovered and documented by Judicial Watch clearly prove.

This is the Cloward and Piven Presidency.  It is literally an administration that hates America and that seeks to implode this nation in order to impose a Marxist Utopia.  As Obama’s SEIU thug allies clearly were caught trying to do in advocating that millions of people refuse to pay their mortgage obligations in order to – and yes I am directly quoting – “put banks at the edge of insolvency again” in order “to destabilize the folks” and thus “literally cause a new financial crisis“.

Americans had better wake up.  Because one more Obama term and you’re going to get a “fundamentally transformed America.”

And by “fundamentally transformed” I mean a deliberately bankrupted and imploded America.

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

May 4, 2012

The Solyndra President.  Well, make that the Solyndra-EverGreenSpectraWattFirst SolarSolar TrustAbound SolarBrightSourceLSP EnergyEner1SunPowerBeacon PowerECOtalityA123Uni SolarAzure Dynamics President.  Not to mention all the other now-bankrupt green energy crony-capitalist businesses that have stolen more than $2 billion dollars of the American people’s money.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The full-length video obtained by The Huffington Post.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

They issued a memorandum detailing the charges available here.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Obama Socialist Plans To ‘Make Government Cool Again’ Hits Slight Snag In Wake Of One Giant Pathetic Scandal After Another

April 23, 2012

Obama in 2008 telling us about the utopia he’s going to create for an America suddenly embracing the mantra “We Are All Socialists Now” to go along with “Yes we can!”

Obama plans to ‘make government cool again’
Ben Smith

Barack Obama addressed the wide distaste for government — and the fact that he and John McCain are running against Washington — at the forum on national service at Columbia University.

“Our campaign from the beginning has been about changing government,” he said, recalling some great accomplishments of American government: Civil rights legislation, the interstate highway system, and the National Park system.

Obama would, he said, “transform Washington” and “make government cool again.”

Obama also had some praise for small-town mayors — like, not so long ago, Sarah Palin — who, he said have “some of the toughest jobs in the country. We yak [in the Senate] but they…fill potholes and trim trees and make sure the garbage” is picked up.

Why was had there been such a “wide distaste for government”???  Because government taste like bovine fecal matter in giant quantities shoved down your throat.  And then you’re forced to pay for the meal at about a hundred times the price that the private sector would have charged for the dining privilege.  In a nutshell.

And, hey, Obama, boy have you ever changed government: you’ve made it bigger and more expensive and more “distasteful” than it has EVER BEEN IN THE HISTORY OF THE REPUBLIC.  You set out to “fundamentally transform America,” and you’ve done it.  Good job.  Pat yourself on the back.  Smoke a cigarette.  Your work destroying America is nearly done.

The GSA scandal gives us more than massive waste and fraud; it gives us pictures and videos of big government union workers putting on clown suits and flipping off the taxpayers.  The Secret Service proves that even the most trusted workers in government have totally broken down under the Obama Culture.  And we’re supposed to want to “make government cool again” so we can force the American people to pay for more of the same???

Under Obama, “In Nothing We Trust.”  Under Obama, we’re looking at a scandal of massive green boondoggles of which Solyndra is just the tiny tip of a giant iceberg.  Under Obama, we’re watching the GSA scandal openly mock the taxpayers more and more.  Under Obama, we’re looking at pure evil with the Fast and Furious scandal in which Obama put weapons in the hands of drug cartel murderers and let them murder American citizens with them.  Under Obama, we’ve had example after example of the breakdown of the US military over which Obama is commander-in-chief.  And there are more of them coming out every day now, aren’t there?  Under Obama, things are getting beyond wicked.

But Obama wants more and more and more and bigger and bigger and bigger government that will seize and confiscate more and more and more of the smaller and smaller minority of Americans who actually pay any federal income taxes and pay for this ungodly monster.  Federal workers being paid more than $150,000 a year have DOUBLED under Obama.  And there’s plenty more where that came from.

Obama has massively increased the size of government even as he has gutted military spending:

I just got through writing about just a tiny fraction of all the Obama scandals that are going on right now.  The man is a firehose of pure evil and America is now flooded.

Scandals Undercut Obama Re-Election Message

Scandals Undercut Obama Re-Election Message; Bio Battle: Rick from Paint Creek Versus Willard from Bloomfield Hills

Third Scandal Drags on Obama Campaign

“The optics of a Solyndra default will be bad… The timing will likely coincide with the 2012 campaign season heating up.”

— Prophetic Jan. 31 email from an official in the White House Office of Management and Budget released Thursday by the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

First there was Fast and Furious, then there was Solyndra and now there is LightSquared — three high-level scandals that involve allegations of cover-ups inside the Obama administration.

For a president who is already dragging an unpopular agenda and low marks on his handling of the economy along the campaign trail, this scandal troika is seriously bad news.

Obama is working desperately to prove to voters that he’s more interested in getting results than playing politics. He took a break from his series of campaign stops in battleground states (Virginia, Ohio, North Carolina, back to Ohio next week) on Thursday and was wooing big-dollar donors in Washington. He explained that while it might look like he is engaged in his own re-election campaign, his is merely involved in “governance” by working to pass a new stimulus package.

“There’s a time for governance and there’s a time for making a political case,” Obama told donors. “My hope is, is that we’re going to keep on seeing some governance out of Washington over the next several months, because the American people can’t afford to wait for an election to actually see us start doing something serious about our jobs.”

This is a central part of Obama’s 2012 political pitch: That he is above politics, while his adversaries are unpatriotically grubbing for votes.

It takes chutzpah to make that case in the midst of a swing-state tour and at a dinner for political donors, but it’s an argument that Obama relied on during his remarkable political rise. It is understandable that he would want to use the same tool now that he is seeking to revive his fortunes.

The scandals, though, make the task harder.

The latest one involves confidential testimony from Gen. William Shelton, head of the Air Force’s Space Command, whom congressional sources say told a House Armed Services subcommittee that he was pressured to change his prepared remarks in a way that would benefit a major Democratic donor.

Philip Falcone is one of the big backers of LightSquared, a telecommunications company that wants to develop a nationwide satellite phone network. Falcone is a billionaire hedge-fund manager who is known as “the Midas of misery” for his skills at exploiting economic failure. He is also a big political campaign contributor, usually to Democrats.

His LightSquared venture requires federal authorization because of concerns that it would interfere with the satellite-driven GPS system that guides the U.S. military. Shelton reportedly said he was pressured to change his conclusion that the LightSquared plan was too risky. If the plan is nixed, Falcone and his partners stand to lose big.

A motive for trying to get Shelton to shade his testimony might also be found in the fact that the Obama administration has long been pushing for the idea of a national wireless broadband system, the very thing that Falcone and Co. are selling. If the generals say no to LightSquared it could permanently derail the pet project. But the involvement of a Democratic donor casts the pall of cronyism on the whole mess.

Only three entities review a general’s prepared testimony: Department of Defense, the White House, and the Office Management and Budget, so Shelton’s accusation is potent stuff.

This comes as new emails reveal that White House officials who were supposed to be vetting failed solar panel maker Solyndra, also run by a major Democratic donor, for a half-billion-dollar subsidized loan were very much interested in “optics” and political ramifications of their decisions.

Politics were at play when the White House revived the idea that had been tabled during the Bush administration and at play again as Obama officials fretted over how to manage the firm’s collapse in the least damaging way for the president’s re-election.

As evidence piles up in the Solyndra case, new details continue to emerge on the Fast and Furious probe that show a much larger scale for the Justice Department’s botched gunrunning sting, which encouraged illegal gun trafficking to drug gangs and then lost track of the weapons.

Here, there is no claim of cronyism, but there is the strong allegation from Republicans in Congress that the administration has withheld details of the operation now linked to the murder of a Border Patrol agent and other crimes in order to spare the administration further political embarrassment.

As Obama works to revive his brand as a man beyond petty politics, these three slow-burning political scandals will continue to undercut his claim.

It’s not really just “three” scandals.  ObamaCare itself and the 1,200 waivers of this unconstitutional takeover – whatever happened to equal treatment under the law? – as well as  its highly likely overturning as unconstitutional by the Supreme Court is a scandal; Obama’s treasonous reaction to that likely decision is a scandal; Obama’s tendency to demonize the other co-equal branches of government like a fascist dictator thug wannabe is a scandal; Obama’s close relationship with Jon Corzine and MF Global and over a billion dollars stolen by crony capitalist vultures is a scandal; skyrocketing gas prices are a scandal; Obama’s shocking labor participation rate and the 88 million Americans who have given up trying to find work under his failed regime is a scandal;  Obama’s incredibly failed and despicable budgets are a scandal; the fact that housing is the worst since the Great Depression and the poor have been utterly screwed by Obama’s failed policies is a scandal; the fact that poverty is the highest in the fifty-two years it has been measured is a scandal; the fact that that just ONE MONTH of Obama’s deficit is FIFTY PERCENT HIGHER THAN THE ENTIRE YEARS’ DEFICIT UNDER GOP RULE is a scandal;  the fact that it has now been 1,086 days since the Democrats have bothered to pass a budget is a scandal; the fact that Obama’s real unemployment rate is actually over NINETEEN PERCENT is a scandal; the fact that Obama has destroyed jobs and will CONTINUE to destroy jobs is a scandal; Obama’s demonizing George Bush over his debt ceiling extension before demanding the THREE LARGEST DEBT CEILING HIKES IN HUMAN HISTORY is a scandal; Obama’s demonizing George Bush over his debt when Obama has now spent far more in far less time is a scandal; Obama cutting and running from Afghanistan after all of his bogus promises is a scandal; Obama’s inflation is a scandal; the fact that Obama’s $862 billion stimulus ended up being an abject failure resulting in his demanding yet ANOTHER FAILED STIMULUS is a scandal.  Obama’s promise to transcend the political divide only to become the worst demagogue this nation has ever seen is a scandal; Obama promising unprecedented transparency only to actually give us unprecedented cover-up and secrecy is a scandal.

Which amendment to the Constitution is Obama’s very favorite?  Clearly the 5th, which allows his fascist cronies to deny responsibility for all the crimes they committed doing Obama’s thug bidding:

Oh, and Obama’s numerous Abu Ghraib moments are scandals; particularly given that there is a new Abu Ghraib moment todayObama’s unconstitutional power-grab in making “recess appointments” WHEN THE SENATE WAS NOT IN RECESS is a scandal that is now coming back like one of Jeremiah Wright’s chickens to roost.

But who’s counting???  Certainly not the mainstream media propaganda machine.

Let’s just keep letting the man who promised America that he wouldn’t make excuses to continue to make more excuses:

“Yes We Can” implode America.  And blame Bush for it even four years after Bush last had anything to do with the White House.

Obama’s GSA Chief Resigns After Beyond-Insane Spending Found Out

April 3, 2012

Notice how quickly Obama’s stooges raced out and said, “Blame Bush!  Blame Republicans!  Anybody but our Messiah!”

GSA Chief Resigns Over Outlandish Spending
By Daniel Foster
April 2, 2012 4:15 P.M.

General Services Administration head Martha Johnson has resigned along with two of her deputies, reportedly over an impending inspector general’s report detailing lavish spending on a Vegas conference for a handful of government employees.

Organizers spent $835,000 on the event, which was attended by 300 employees. The expenses included $147,000 in airfare and lodging at the hotel for six planning trips by a team of organizers. Among the other expenses were $3,200 for a mind reader; $6,300 on commemorative coin set displayed in velvet boxes and $75,000 on a training exercise to build a bicycle.

“When the White House was informed of the Inspector General’s findings we acted quickly to determine who was responsible for such a gross misuse of taxpayer dollars,” White House Chief of State Jack Lew said in a statement to The Washington Post. President Obama “was outraged by the excessive spending, questionable dealings with contractors, and disregard for taxpayer dollars,” Lew said, “and called for all those responsible to be held fully accountable.”

The GSA is basically the federal government’s office managers, providing things like office space, desks, and cars to other agencies. One of its charges is to develop cost-saving administrative strategies. . . .

Obama demonized Las Vegas trips.  But of course that was just deceitful demagogic rhetoric for public consumption.

On the “we-told-you-so” side of this story, Republicans tried to block Martha Johnson’s appointment:

On February 3, 2010, Obama, in an unusual move for a sitting president, sharply criticized Bond and Republican senators for blocking Johnson’s nomination, and complained that Republicans were blocking nominees for reasons that have nothing to do with their qualifications for their prospective jobs. While at a retreat for Democratic senators, Obama made the comments in response to a question from Sen. Patrick Leahy about his judicial nominations. Obama expanded his answer to include not just blocked judicial nominations but also executive nominations as well:

Nobody can tell me that there’s anything particularly wrong with her. They’re blocking her because of some unrelated matter. Don’t hold this — this woman hostage. If you have an objection about my health-care policies, then let’s debate the health-care policies. But don’t suddenly end up having a GSA administrator who is stuck in limbo somewhere because you don’t like something else that we’re doing.

This was almost as crazy as the fact that the federal limousine  fleet had grown by 73% under Obama from when Bush was president in only two years.

Kind of explains why Obama’s budget deficits are averaging well over a trillion dollars a year, doesn’t it???

Limousine Liberals: Elite Bureaucrats Skyrocket Under Führer Obama’s Regime

June 1, 2011

The number of limousines has increased by 73 Percent during the first two years of Obama.  Stuff that in your pipes and smoke it, you hypocrite liberals who constantly tell us how much you care about the little people.

Limousine Liberals? Number of Government-Owned Limos Has Soared Under Obama

Limousines, the very symbol of wealth and excess, are usually the domain of corporate executives and the rich. But the number of limos owned by Uncle Sam increased by 73 percent during the first two years of the Obama administration, according to an analysis of records by iWatch News.

Most of the increase was recorded in Hillary Clinton’s State Department.

Obama administration officials said most of the increase reflects an enhanced effort to protect diplomats and other government officials in a dangerous world. But a watchdog group says the abundance of limos sends the wrong message in the midst of a budget crisis. The increase in limos comes to light on the heels of an executive order from President Obama last week that charges agencies to increase the fuel efficiency of their fleets.

According to General Services Administration data, the number of limousines in the federal fleet increased from 238 in fiscal 2008, the last year of the George W. Bush administration, to 412 in 2010. Much of the 73 percent increase–111 of the 174 additional limos–took place in fiscal 2009, more than eight months of which corresponded with Obama’s first year in office. However, some of those purchases could reflect requests made by the Bush administration during an appropriations process that would have begun in the spring of 2008.

The GSA said its limousine numbers are not reliable, even though the federal fleet numbers are officially recorded every year. In a statement, GSA spokeswoman Sara Merriam said, “The categories in the Fleet Report are overly broad, and the term ‘limousine’ is not defined,” adding that “vehicles represented as limousines can range from protective duty vehicles to sedans.” Asked whether the GSA actually knows how many limos it has in its fleet, Merriam responded that GSA “cannot say that its report accurately reflects the number of limousines.”

Leslie Paige, a spokeswoman for the nonprofit watchdog group Citizens Against Government Waste, was outraged that the GSA’s numbers may not be accurate. “They can’t figure out a way to define a limo? How hard can it be? If the government can’t track limos, I’m not sure we should trust the numbers they put out there on anything,” she said.

Although the overall limo numbers in the fleet report were up in 2010, federal agencies and departments did not benefit equally. The State Department, with 259, had more limos than any other agency in 2010 and has gained 194 limos just since fiscal 2008. Of those new limos, 98 were defined as “law enforcement,” which the GSA said means they are equipped with sirens or lights, high-performance drivetrains, or are used for surveillance or undercover operations.

The State Department in a statement said its limos are deployed by overseas diplomats and in the United States by Secretary of State Clinton and “distinguished foreign visitors.” Many of the limos in its fleet are armored to protect against attack. The department said its Obama-era increase in armored limos is “both in proportion to the increased threat to diplomats serving overseas and is in proportion to the increase number of diplomats we have serving in high threat environments.” Appropriations documents indicate the State Department was engaged in a longer-term effort to increase the number of armored vehicles that would have stretched back to at least 2007.

The department said it defines a limo as a vehicle that carries a VIP or “other protectee,” rather than by the type of car, but said most of its limos are Cadillac DTSs, which cost the taxpayer more than $60,000 for a 2011 base model and support the additional weight of armoring. The department said it also purchased a limited number of 7-Series BMWs for ambassadors in countries where vehicles are right-hand drive.

The Department of Homeland Security, which in 2010 had the second largest number of limos at 118, dropped four limos from 2008 to 2010. A spokesman for DHS said the majority of its limos are used by the Secret Service, which is part of the department, but declined to elaborate on exact numbers, citing security concerns.

Paige, of CAGW, called the new federal limos “one more reason why there is so much cynicism in the public about what goes on in Washington.” She said terrorism and security has become the catchall justification for increased federal spending.

The increase in limos comes at a time when the Obama administration is increasingly working to burnish its green energy credentials by targeting the federal fleet. On Tuesday, Obama released a presidential memorandum requiring agencies to purchase only alternative fuel vehicles by 2015. The memorandum limits executive fleets to mid-sized and smaller cars “except where larger sedans are essential to the agency mission.” It also exempts law enforcement and security vehicles, which could make up the majority of the federal limo fleet.

According to a March report by the GAO, the federal government spent $1.9 billion on new vehicles in fiscal 2009, and burned through 963,000 gallons of fuel a day with its fleet of 600,00 vehicles.

The number of limousines in the federal fleet has varied over the years. In 2007, the number dropped to 217 from 318 a year before. But due to the fuzzy GSA accounting, it’s unclear exactly how many federal limos have been on the road.

According to the GSA report, for example, the U.S. Agency for International Development, which had zero limos in 2008, added six limos to its fleet in 2009. But agency spokesman Lars Anderson said that’s because six standard overseas sedans, including a 1997 Ford Crown Victoria in Bangladesh, and a 2009 Mercury Grand Marquis in El Salvador, were incorrectly recorded as limos.

If the data is correct, some federal employees who once rode in style now face more proletarian transportation options. The Department of Veterans Affairs, for example, ran a fleet of 21 limousines in 2008 under George W. Bush, according to the fleet report. It now makes do with only one. The Government Printing Office also lost all of its six limos between 2009 and 2010. The VA and the Government Printing Office did not respond to calls for comment.

The money following the Obama regime’s incredibly lame excuse – “the count may not be right because we’re really not competent to count limos” – was this one.  It’s just GOT to be repeated:

Leslie Paige, a spokeswoman for the nonprofit watchdog group Citizens Against Government Waste, was outraged that the GSA’s numbers may not be accurate. “They can’t figure out a way to define a limo? How hard can it be? If the government can’t track limos, I’m not sure we should trust the numbers they put out there on anything,” she said.

God bless common sense.

We can’t trust ANYTHING these people are saying.  To the extent that they aren’t just brazenly lying or covering either their own or their fool-in-chief’s ass, they are stunningly incompetent.  Not to mention the fact that THEY’RE THE SAME PEOPLE WHO ARE RIDING AROUND IN ALL THE DAMNED LIMOUSINES!!!

By the way, take Obama’s argument that the massive increase in limousines is the result of an “enhanced effort to protect diplomats and other government officials in a dangerous world.”  To the extent that Obama needs an “enhanced” limousine fleet to protect government officials, how about actually having a little more “enhanced interrogation” so they wouldn’t need to buy all the limos?  On the other side of that same coin, the Obama regime is essentially saying, “The world isn’t safe like it was when George W. Bush was president.”  When Obama’s signature argument was that Bush had made the world more dangerous, and Obama was going to make everyone love us with that magic unicorn fairy dust glitz of his.

The bottom line is this: Obama has massively increased the bureaucracy in Washington.  And what do all these limousine liberals need if not new limousines???

I think of the days of the good old Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, and all the commissars who preached that nobody owned anything because everybody actually owned everything.  And then they took their limousines to their dachas and ate fine caviar while the rest of the people had nothing because that’s just what liberals do when they’re lording it over the proletariat they “serve.”

A picture is worth a thousand words.  How about this recent one of Obama’s motorcade to sum it up?

Meanwhile, the country continues to slowly implode under Obama.  And there are more and more poor people to match the giant increase in limousine liberals.

Because there’s what these liberals say to anyone fool enough to believe them, and then there’s what they’re riding in when they’re through lying.
