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:

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:

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

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.

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.
