Obama’s – And Worse The Mainstream Media’s – Incredibly Vile And Dishonest Hypocrisy Over Louisiana Disaster

August 22, 2016

When I searched the internet for these exact words that I personally saw Obama speak on video from Fox News, do you know where I had to go to actually find them?  Sources like Breitbart and Rush Limbaugh.  Why???  Because the wicked, demonically hypocritical and pathologically dishonest mainstream media WILL NOT present the news fairly or honestly or accurately.

This photo of Bush was ran over and over and over again on every single mainstream media “news” site.  The mainstream media made this THE image of the Bush presidency because they WANTED to make it THE image of the Bush presidency.  It was the single thing that BROKE the Bush presidency, the image of a detached, distant commander-in-chief who couldn’t be bothered to land his plane but instead surveyed the damage from the remote heavens:

Barack Obama tore Bush apart for this image.

Calling the flyover a metaphor for Bush’s failed leadership, candidate Obama said, “People looked up at the roof tops for too long and all they saw was an empty sky.”

It is NEWS when a president so hypocritically excoriates his predecessor and then turns out to be stinking WORSE than the man he demonized.

Every single legitimate news agency will run this story into the ground day-after-day-after-day with a deafening drumbeat the same way they ran it thus against George W. Bush.  The problem is that not ONE mainstream news outlet is legitimate any more.  They are ALL propaganda outlets.  They are ALL pathologically dishonest political ideologues spinning and twisting and distorting the news for their socialist political party and their socialist political candidates.

Let’s look at the factual historical record that you basically have to go to Breitbart or Rush Limbaugh or Drudge to actually see.

Candidate Barack Obama, viciously and hatefully slandering and demonizing President George W. Bush in 2008:

“When the people of New Orleans and Gulf Coast extended their hand for help, help was not there. When people looked up from the rooftops, for too long they saw an empty sky. When the winds blew and the flood waters came, we learned for all of our wealth and our power, something wasn’t right with America. We can talk about what happened for a few days in 2005, and we should. We can talk about levies that couldn’t hold, about a FEMA that seem not just incompetent but paralyzed and powerless, about a president who only saw the people from a window on an airplane instead of down here on the ground, trying to provide comfort and aid. We can talk about a trust that was broken, the promise that our government would be prepared, will protect us, and will respond in a catastrophe.” – Obama’s criticism of Bush on Hurricane Katrina

Bush saw the disaster “from the window of an airplane.”  Obama didn’t bother to even look at it AT ALL.

How did Obama “respond in a catastrophe”???  He played more golf.  He played TEN rounds of golf while Louisiana was under freaking WATER:

obama golf la

Now the media is suddenly agreeing with what Bush protested at the time, that if he had landed, precious, vital emergency- and first-response resources would have either been redirected or stopped by the Bush security detail as Bush came down for what the media would have demonized as a “photo op” had he come down.  Because when you are a Republican, you can not win with the news.  They will demonize you whether you zig or whether you zag.

In 2005, Bush had a Democrat governor who failed her state so badly she got booted from office to help demonize Bush.

But in the wave of dishonest Obama propaganda, Democrats have retaken the state, so now we have this.  Look at the hypocrisy from the Democrat governor from these two stories exposed by Mediate:

Democratic Louisiana Governor Backtracks, Praises Trump For Flood Visit

On Thursday night, Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards (D-LA) released a statement suggesting that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump‘s hastily-organized Friday visit to Baton Rouge was nothing but a photo op

The governor fed us this crap:

Louisiana Governor: Donald Trump’s Visit ‘Helpful’

The governor of Louisiana said Sunday that Donald Trump’s trip to his state was helpful in getting the country’s attention on the devastating flooding around Baton Rouge.

Consider what the Democrat governor is now trying to say and read between the lines the way the mainstream media will never do:

Louisiana governor seeks donors and volunteers after floods: ‘We need help’
Many Americans are ‘just now realizing how significant’ the disaster was, says John Bel Edwards, since – unlike a hurricane – it wasn’t given a name
Alan Yuhas
Sunday 21 August 2016 11.24 EDT
Louisiana governor John Bel Edwards pleaded for aid for his state on Sunday, saying that after a week of devastating flooding, “we really need help.”
Unlike a hurricane, Edwards told CNN on Sunday, “this rain event didn’t have a name, so we have folks around the country who I think are just now realizing how significant it was.”
Days of extraordinary rainfall caused severe flooding around southern Louisiana this week, killing at least 13 people, damaging an estimated 60,000 homes and forcing thousands to the shelter of evacuation centers. More than 100,000 people had registered for federal assistance by Sunday, even as waters slowly receded and many families returned home to find furniture broken and caked in mud, walls weakened by water and early signs of mold spreading through their rooms.

“Typically by this point in a storm, I think Red Cross would be receiving a lot more donations; I think there would be more volunteers signing up,” Edwards said. “It would be very helpful for people to donate to the Red Cross, to the Baton Rouge area foundation, and also to come in and volunteer to help people get back into their homes as quickly as possible.”

In the small town of Lake Arthur, east of the Lacassine wildlife refuge, authorities barred residents from returning home as teams piled sandbags and worked pumps, struggling to keep the floodwaters out of more homes.

 In St Amanat, one of the worst-flooded towns of southern Louisiana, teams continued to go door to door in search of survivors and bodies on Sunday. “It’s much worse than I expected,” resident Sheila Siener told the Associated Press. “The water, the dirt, the smell. Water in the cabinets. Everything’s filthy. I’ve never been through a flood, so I really didn’t know.”
About 25 miles away in Denham Springs, floods unearthed graves and damaged tombs at one of at least 15 cemeteries in the region that were affected by the rains. Resident Willie Brooks III found that his mother’s vault had vanished. “The vault was completely gone,” Brooks said. “It could be down the street. It could be in the Amite River. I don’t know.”

Do presidential tours create havoc with local resources in a disaster that are badly needed to deal with the actual emergency?  WELL, IF THEY DO NOW, THEN THEY DID WHEN BUSH WAS PRESIDENT, DONTYATHINK????

But the ONE thing a presidential tour brings to a devastated area is attention, awareness and exposure.

The Democrat governor started out – because being a “Democrat” he is nothing but a DEMOn-possessed bureauCRAT cockroach politician – defending Obama for not coming and trying to demonize and slime Donald Trump for being the ONLY presidential candidate who actually showed up and said, “I CARE.”

But first he was forced to praise Donald Trump’s visit for creating the very awareness and attention that Barack Obama indifferently and without any compassion whatsoever refused to bother to create, and now that same governor is forced to try to say in a quiet, desperate way that Barack Obama horrifyingly let his state down when they needed him the most.

Democrat Governor Kathleen Blanco and New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin – I actually REMEMBER these names because the media made it such a giant story and made the story about Bush – both personally failed in shocking ways to do their damn jobs.  Mayor Ray Nagin allowed hundreds of school buses that were under his direct authority that could have been used to save people who drowned to sit there in the flood waters unused.  Blanco had so miserably misdirected funds that had been earmarked to reinforce the levies that broke.

And the same media that made that story about Bush and will NOT make this story about Obama should never be read or watched or viewed ever again.

We need Donald Trump for president on Obama’s logic: because when Obama couldn’t even be bothered to get on a damn plane because he wanted to play ten rounds of golf in Martha’s Vineyard, when Hillary Clinton was taking a long nap every other day between her screeching fundraising events, Donald Trump showed up at the disaster site and ALONE did the job of a president.

As Obama Claims Republicans Ruined Economy, Consider Economy During LAST YEARS’ Martha’s Vineyard Vacation

August 19, 2011

One of the lies Obama told on his BS (because U weren’t in his Canadian-built bus, were you?) tour was that he’d fixed the economy, and then the Republicans came to power

Let’s burn that lie down right now. 

While Obama was happily hobnobbing with the super-rich at Martha’s Vineyard last August, I wrote up a list of all the things that were truly going to hell:

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

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

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

Okay, scratch that: THIS is my favorite headline:

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

I didn’t realize that last year’s post on Obama’s Martha’s Vineyard vacation would come in handy to refute the massive Obama lies just before this year’s Martha’s Vineyard vacation.

Boy, Obama sure had the streets paved with gold last year before those nasty Republicans entered the scene, didn’t he?  Last August, you might recall, Obama had the White House, Nancy Pelosi owned the House of Representatives lock, stock and barrel and Harry Reid had a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate.  But of course Bush was to blame for everything back then, just like Republicans are to blame for everything now.

Since Barack Obama became president, the number of Americans on food stamps has increased by 43%.  But blame Bush.  And Republicans, of course.

As Barack Obama leaves on vacation to hob-nob with the millionaires, the man who isn’t bothering to get economic briefings on a daily basis is ignoring a world on the verge of meltdown over fears of a U.S. meltdown.

It is amazing how utterly jammed-packed with fecal matter Democrats are.  George Bush was to blame for everything because George Bush was president; but Barack Obama being president for nearly three years means he is absolutely not to be held responsible for anything.  Republicans are to be blamed for everything now because they control the House of Representatives, but the fact that Democrats had total control of both the House of Representatives AND the Senate from 2006 until 2010 – which strangely corresponds quite well to when everything started going to hell – means they aren’t responsible for anything.  Because Bush was president, and the president is responsible unless that president happens to be Barack Obama.  And of course you hold the Republicans responsible if they control the House because you don’t hold the Democrats responsible even if they control both the House and the Senate.

One might laugh at this mindset, but it is the mindset of your mainstream media news.

I leave you with the words of former NBC News president Michael Gartner about Barack Obama:

“I think people have a fondness for him and I don’t think people blame him for anything that’s wrong in this country, unless – I think the far-right of the Republican Party does, but I don’t think the moderates do and certainly the Democrats don’t.”

When this is the representative attitude of the mainstream media, you know that America has truly surpassed Joseph Goebbels in the field of propaganda.

More And More And More Americans Looking At Obama And Missing Bush

October 10, 2010

This is amazing, particularly given that it comes from CNN (which stands for either “Clinton News Network” or “Credible News? NOT!” depending on your source.

CNN Poll: Was Bush better president than Obama?
By: CNN Political Unit

(CNN) – Americans are divided over whether President Barack Obama or his predecessor has performed better in the White House, according to a new national poll.

And a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Friday also indicates in the battle for Congress, Republicans hold large advantages over the Democrats among independents, men and blue-collar whites. The poll also indicates that Republicans are much more enthusiastic than Democrats to vote.

By 47 to 45 percent, Americans say Obama is a better president than George W. Bush. But that two point margin is down from a 23 point advantage one year ago.

“Democrats may want to think twice about bringing up former President George W. Bush’s name while campaigning this year,” says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. […]

The CNN/Opinion Research Corporation national poll was conducted October 5-7, with 1,008 adult Americans, including 938 registered voters and 504 likely voters, questioned by telephone. The survey’s overall sampling error is plus or minus percentage points, with a sampling error of plus or minus 4.5 percentage points for likely voters.

Note that Obama’s “win” is WAY WITHIN the margin of error; the results could actually be the other way around, with Bush ahead of Obama.

Just think about it.  Just one year ago Obama was the greatest president in all messiahdom, and Bush was the worstest and evilest president who ever lived.

Now, after just a brief taste of “hope and change,” the Democrats’ greatest president is on the verge of being eclipsed by “the murderer of freedom” himself.

And this according to a LIBERAL poll.

If that isn’t bad enough, yet another left-leaning polling organization found that:

there’s one finding on the poll that pretty much sums it up: by a 50-42 margin voters there say they’d rather have George W. Bush in the White House right now than Barack Obama.

And that’s in Ohio, a state in which Obama easily defeated McCain 51% to 47%.

Wonder how many 2008 “blue states” are missing Bush?

We recently noticed that even Über-Über liberal Martha’s Vineyard missed Bush compared with Obama, for instance.

Sadly, too many Americans were fooled by the most biased media America has ever seen:

Due to the most malicious and unfair media coverage of a presidential election America has ever seen, the American people were deceived into believing that a man who flew fighter jets for the Air Force was a drooling imbecile, but a man who couldn’t figure out how to successfully operate an umbrella, and who can’t even say his own name without his “idiot board” –

– was an unparalleled genius.

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

August 27, 2010

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[Snip]

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

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

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

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

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

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

Okay, scratch that: THIS is my favorite headline:

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

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

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

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

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

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

On the bright side, for you, Barry:

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

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

And On The Seventh Vacation, Obama Rested From All His Failures

August 19, 2010

From the King Hussein Version, Genesis of America’s Demise, chapter 2:

“Thus the economy and American foreign policy were finished, and all the host of them.  And on the seventh vacation The One temporarily paused his destruction which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his destruction which he had made.”

Okay, it’s not actually Obama’s seventh vacation this year, but it’s close enough.  For those who are keeping scorecards at home, this marks the Obamas’ sixth vacation so far this year.

Which, as bad as it is, still doesn’t take into account all the glitzy Let-them-eat-cake parties Obama has held during his economy-in-the-toilet presidency.

Which makes the following earlier Obama promise rather incredible for all of its sheer chutzpah:

Nov 23, 2009
Obama ‘will not rest’ until there are more jobs

President Obama rebuffed reporters’ attempts to ask about Afghanistan today, focusing instead on what he described as his administration’s biggest challenge: Jobs.

“I will not rest until businesses are investing again and businesses are hiring again and people have work again,” Obama said after meeting with his Cabinet.

That’s an interesting headline compared to this one from today as Obama stretches his scrawny body at Martha’s Vineyard:

Jobless claims rise to highest level in 9 months
By CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER, AP Economics Writer Christopher S. Rugaber, Ap Economics Writer   – Thu Aug 19, 12:28 pm ET

WASHINGTON – Employers appear to be laying off workers again as the economic recovery weakens. The number of people applying for unemployment benefits reached the half-million mark last week for the first time since November.

It was the third straight week that first-time jobless claims rose. The upward trend suggests the private sector may report a net loss of jobs in August for the first time this year.

Initial claims rose by 12,000 last week to 500,000, the Labor Department said Thursday.

Construction firms are letting go of more workers as the housing sector slumps and federal stimulus spending on public works projects winds down. State and local governments are also cutting jobs to close large budget gaps.

The layoffs add to growing fears that the economic recovery is slowing and the country could slip back into a recession
.

Obama has destroyed 3 million jobs since his $3.27 trillion stimulus boondoggle was passed.  And even the Obama administration confirms that those jobs have been permanently destroyed and won’t be coming back.

Obama might argue that he’s really, really, really tired for not resting a single night the last two years while he has utterly failed to live up to any of his incredibly cynical promises.  Which paradoxically means he needs all those vacations to rest from all of his not resting.

Given Imam Obama’s pretzel-twisting on the Ground Zero mosque (see also here), that would actually sound logical to him.

Or maybe Obama is striving for solidarity with the Forgotten Man.  Since the American people aren’t working, Obama won’t work, either.

For my part, it’s just yet another of myriad evidences as to how totally full of crap our failure-in-chief truly is.

Even Über-Liberal Martha’s Vineyard Starting To Miss Bush

August 19, 2010

Martha’s Vineyard is quintessentially Über-Über liberal.  In the 2008 election, fully 75% of the island residents voted for Obama.  Which is why Democrats love it so much.

Which makes the following story a) utterly hilarious in its sheer delicious irony and b) terrifying news for Democrats.  Democrats  should basically view themselves as cockroaches caught in the light and seeing a giant boot forcefully descending from heaven (mind you, Democrats should ALWAYS view themselves as cockroaches) as November approaches:

Vineyard buzzes less for Obamas’ second visit
Many say they’ll leave family alone
By Milton J. Valencia
Globe Staff / August 18, 2010

OAK BLUFFS — Sharky’s Cantina is once again mixing its “Obamarita’’ cocktail, with tastes of the president’s favorite fruits, and the Locker Room on Circuit Avenue has restocked the “I vacationed with Obama’’ T-shirts.

But as Martha’s Vineyard prepares for the first family’s visit tomorrow — their second summer stay here since President Obama took office — the excitement that marked last summer’s arrival of the fresh-faced commander in chief seems to have ebbed like the tide.

Obama, now a tested president burdened by war and economic upheaval, may well get the peace and quiet he has been seeking as he settles in for a 10-day stay, presumably at the historic Blue Heron Farm in Chilmark where he stayed last year, local residents said.

“I have no desire to go chase him or see him,’
’ said Elaine Allen, owner of the Laughing Bear clothing shop on Circuit Avenue, one of the few stores to feature a poster in its window welcoming the first family this year.

“Let him just have that R and R that he needs,’’ she said.

It was only a year ago that the president, a superstar after his historic election, rode a wave of popularity to The Rock. Islanders typically brag about a laissez-faire attitude when it comes to celebrities, but it seemed everyone wanted a glimpse of Obama playing golf or biking with his daughters.

But in the final days before his second visit, some residents say the excitement has waned along with Obama’s popularity after two years in office. Others say his poll numbers are not the issue; they just want to give the president the quiet he seeks.

“It’s not as hectic or as crazy’’ this year, said Maya Sharp, a clerk at Alley’s General Store in West Tisbury, one of the locations the president visited last summer. She remembers the excitement when Secret Service agents came into the store announcing that the president would visit. No one else was allowed in the store when he came in to buy candy for his two daughters.

“It’s just a laid-back feeling now,’’ Sharp said. “It’s like ‘Wow, he’s coming — again.’ ’’

One barometer of the plunge in excitement has been the sale of Obama-themed T-shirts, which designers had been banking on after the craze of last year. Clothing labeled with the president’s name sold by the thousands, helping to salvage a tough economic year for the island.

But this year’s T-shirt sales are much less brisk, merchants say.

“Last year, Obama gave you goose bumps, but I don’t think you’re going to see that this year,’’ said Alex McCluskey, co-owner of the Locker Room, who sold more than 4,000 “I vacationed with Obama’’ T-shirts last year. But so far this year, he said, his hot item is T-shirts of former President Bush asking, “Miss me yet?’’

Residents have also noticed a drop in the number of stores with Obama posters on their front windows and homes with signs that welcome the first family.

Just imagine the sorry loser who doubled his order of “I Vacationed with Obama” T-Shirts.  There’s your metaphor for “hope and change” in a nutshell: hope in Obama means no change in your pockets.

Maybe Obama-themed T-shirts will come back if someone makes a shirt that says, “I hoped in one hand and crapped in the other, and all I got to show for it was this lousy handful of crap.”

To miss Bush or not to miss Bush, that is the question:

And when even the snotty elite and snotty elite wannabes miss the leadership of George W. Bush, Democrats are in for the “Titanic, meet Iceberg” event of their lives.

Not only are more and more Democrats missing Bush; they’re preferring him over their current disastrous reality:

A prominent Democratic pollster is circulating a survey that shows George W. Bush is 6 points more popular than President Obama in “Frontline” districts — seats held by Democrats that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee sees as most vulnerable to Republican takeover. That Bush is more popular than Obama in Democratic-held seats is cause for outright fear.

As for me, I do miss Bush.  He did a lot of things right, and he did a lot of things wrong.  In that, he’s very unlike Barry Hussein, who’s done nothing right and absolutely everything wrong.

For those who are keeping scorecards at home, this marks the Obamas’ sixth vacation so far this year.
