Market Responds To Obama’s $447 Billion Not-Stimulus Stimulus By Tanking 304 Points

September 9, 2011

Even the überleftist in-the-tank New York Slimes was forced to report that:

A speech by President Obama on jobs did little to lift the malaise because of uncertainty over whether the program would help the recovery, analysts said.

Hey, thanks for a great big giant load of verbal fecal matter, Obama.

Here’s the foul-smelling “fruits” of Obama’s speech:

Thanks Barack… Stock Market Tanks After Obama’s $447 Billion Stimulus Speech
Posted by Jim Hoft on Friday, September 9, 2011, 9:00 AM

Last night Barack Obama announced his latest spending plan to “revive the economy” would cost another $447 billion.

Today the markets tanked.

The Dow was down 172 points shortly after opening.

The Street reported:

In his speech last night to Congress, the President detailed a $447 billion stimulus package aimed at spurring job creation, a much more ambitious proposal than the $300 billion plan expected. It remains up in the air, however, which parts of Obama’s proposal would be able to pass Congress. Republicans are expected to show their support for the $253 billion in tax cuts but will likely oppose the payroll tax holiday component of Obama’s strategy.

Investors have been particularly uneasy as they await possible monetary and fiscal stimulus to jumpstart the sluggish economy. Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke left the door open on a possible Fed stimulus in his speech Thursday, essentially leaving the market hanging for another two weeks before the next Fed meeting on Sept. 21. Meanwhile, any jobs proposal from Washington is not expected to pass until later this year, leaving the dismal U.S. jobs market staggering without help.

And if finished down 304 points for the day.

Keep talking, Obama, and the presidential limo is going to be on concrete blocks without any wheels in the midst of a Washington D.C. in flames as the symbol of the “hope and change” that Obama represents.

This is what a completely failed presidency looks like.

One Possible Republican Response To The Incredible Cynicism Of Obama’s Jobs Speech

September 8, 2011

Many recognize that Obama’s jobs speech tonight is little more than the lowest form of cynicism.

As low as Obama is in the polls, Congress is even lower.  So what does Obama do?  Call a joint session of Congress so he can rhetorically position himself (and run against) Congress.

And this plan that Obama announced before he even actually had any plan – the one that the White House was “scrambling” to put together – the one that was going to be $300 billion and then $400 billion and now possibly even $450 billion: what is it but the most cynical attempt to create a scenario in which he can claim that he had “the solution” if but Republicans hadn’t put their partisan political interests ahead of the nation and passed it?

It is common knowledge that there is no possible WAY IN HELL that Obama’s jobs plan will actually be implemented.  Remember that Democrats – when they controlled the House as well as the Senate and the White House – couldn’t pass a tax hike in December 2010.  The fact of the matter is that this has nothing to do with substance – with actually helping so much as one person actually get a job – and everything to do with the lowest and most cynical sort of political rhetoric.

Well, here’s how Republicans COULD respond to Obama’s plan: with equal cynicism.

What if the Republican leadership issues Obama and the Democrat Party the following challenge: “Okay.  We’ll agree to pass your plan.  And all we ask for in return is a date CERTAIN by which YOU, Mr. President, YOU, Mr. Vice President, and EVERY SINGLE DEMOCRAT in Congress who votes for this package will resign from office in abject disgrace if it fails to turn the economy around – as it WILL fail just like all of your other failed Keynesian crap has failed?!?!?

When will you resign?  The last time you had a massive failed stimulus, you promised that you could create millions of jobs and bring the unemployment rate down below 6.7% by now if we passed your $862 billion stimulus?

What specific performance measures will you guarantee and by which date will every single Democrat leave office if you fail like you have already repeatedly failed???

What Obama, Stalin, Mao, Hitler, And Freddy Krueger ALL Have In Common: Targeting Children

September 3, 2009

It’s not like this story is news.  But it sure is a punctuation on an old story.

Barack Obama and Freddy Krueger really like going after kids.

We can call the movie, “A Nightmare on EVERY Street.” [Image credit to Resistnet].

“Don’t forget your homework, children.  Write an essay titled, ‘How to help President Obama.’  And as you know, I will severely dock your grade if it isn’t sufficiently worshipful.  After you turn in your papers, we’ll have an indoctrination – I, er, mean a discussion – of how you will help Dear Leader Obama triumph over the evilmonger Republicans so he can establish a glorious One Thousand Year Reich.”

Bush had his “No Children Left Behind.”  Under Obama, it’s “No Child Left Alone.”

If Obama just wanted to do a brief public service announcement and call upon kids to stay in school and study harder, nobody would have a problem with it.  But that isn’t what Obama had in mind at all.

From the Washington Times:

President Obama’s plan to inspire the nation’s schoolchildren with a video address next week erupted into controversy Wednesday, forcing the White House to pull out its eraser and rewrite a government recommendation that teachers nationwide assign students a paper on how to “help the president.”

Presidential aides acknowledged the White House helped the U.S. Education Department craft the proposal, which immediately was met by fierce criticism from Republicans and conservative organizations who accused Mr. Obama of trying to politicize the education system.

White House aides said the language was an honest misunderstanding in what was supposed to be a inspirational, pro-education message to America’s youths.

Among the activities the government initially suggested for prekindergarten to sixth-grade students: that they ” write letters to themselves about what they can do to help the president.”

Another task recommended for students immediately after listening to the speech: to engage in a discussion about what “the president wants us to do.”

The event is still scheduled for September 8, at 12:00 P.M., at Wakefield High School in Arlington.

The K-6 grade curriculum is posted here.

This was about getting kids to ask “how can I help Obama?”  As Obama tanks with grownups, Obama is switching to the people who literally were born yesterday to sell himself and his message.  This is about getting our children to join Obama’s personality cult and push his agenda to their parents.

We’re assured that this was all just an honest mistake, and it is only the most bizarre of coincidences that it basically comes right out of Hitler’s Little Brown Book for Brownshirts.

The fact that no Republican president has ever even come close to anything even remotely resembling such a fascist “misunderstanding” isn’t worth mentioning.  And the fact that Democrat parents would have RIGHTLY come completely unglued if George W. Bush had ever done anything like this is completely beside the point, as well.

It’s not that Barack Obama doesn’t realize that this is intrinsically fascist behavior; it’s frankly just that he doesn’t give a damn.

Remember your liberal mantra:

Just like it wasn’t fascism for public school teachers to so indoctrinate kids that they found themselves doodling like hate notes like this when Bush was president:

That note was found and its image posted by a liberal walking his dog outside of a middle school in Raleigh, North Carolina (the link to the liberal’s blog is available here, and was still active as of today).  He thought it was great.  He said, “I know – EVERYONE hates that a*****e Bush – but I haven’t seen it expressed quite so well by a kid before!”

And silly conservative parents worry that unionized government teachers might indoctrinate their kids.

For those who actually buy the “honest misunderstanding” line that Team Obama Forever offered, let’s take a trip down memory lane.

Singing hymns of praise to the messiah:

The Obama Anthem:

“We’re gonna spread happiness! We’re gonna spread freeeeedom! Obama’s gonna change it, Obama’s gonna lead ‘em…”


Ah, such beautiful memories of great leaders of the past who sought to reach out to their nation’s children:

Ah, yes; I recall the glorious days from the last time children were taught to adore and sing to their leader:

Adolf Hitler is our Saviour, our hero
He is the noblest being in the whole wide world.
For Hitler we live, for Hitler we die.
Our Hitler is our Lord who rules a brave new world
.

And ah, what the heck.  Chairman Mao deserves honorable mention, too:

I’ve purged and murdered millions of their parents, but what can I say?  The kids still love me!

And you’ve really just got to have a video these days, you know: Go, you little Brownshirts, march and chant in cadence to your Dear Leader:

And of course, a Merry Heil, Obama! to you, too!

You remember that terrible little kid whose warmonger soldier father abused him into supporting John McCain?  Thank Government (because we know who our god really is, don’t we?) that a devoted public school teacher was around to indoctrinate – I mean, to um, teach – that little monster and turn him into a productive future member of our new utopia:

So don’t worry, parents.  Your public school teachers won’t take advantage of the Obamathon at your children’s school.  They will teach your kids to love and fear Dear Leader Obama, just like they’re supposed to.

Our Government teachers are loyally teaching children to pledge allegiance to their Dear Leader:

From a public school in Utah (via Michelle Malkin who has more)

A school principal has apologized for showing a video at an assembly that a politically conservative group leader is calling “radical, leftist propaganda.”

Children at Eagle Bay Elementary School in Farmington were shown a short video called “I pledge” on Aug. 28. The video opens with an image of President Barack Obama and part of a speech in which he says, “Let us summon a new spirit of patriotism, of responsibility where each of us resolves to pitch in and work harder and look after not only ourselves but each other.” The video then features celebrities making pledges about how they will help the president and the world — and that’s where some say the problem lies…

… Gayle Ruzicka, president of conservative Utah Eagle Forum, said the video was blatantly political. She said other offensive pledges included, “I pledge to be of service to Barack Obama” [at 3:17 into the video], “I pledge allegiance to the funk, to the united funk of funkadelica,” and pledges to not use plastic grocery bags and not flush the toilet after urinating.

“It’s very inappropriate to show a radical, leftist propaganda piece that political to children,” Ruzicka said. “If parents want their children to learn about those things and do them in the home, wonderful, fine, but it’s not the place of the school to show a one-sided propaganda piece to children without parents knowing about it.”

Cieslewicz said such values should be decided in the home, not at school.

Well, of COURSE public school teachers should be indoctrinating children into a radical leftist political agenda.  It’s the logical extension of using Darwinism to teach them there’s no God.  The little darlings need a replacement.

The video features graphics of Obama, and a short stint from a speech.  And then it shows dozens of well-known celebrities who were so profoundly inspired by Dear Leader that they vowed to change the world in wonderful and environmentally-friendly ways – and of course to serve Barack Obama.  Obama wants us all to pledge – and then all the beautiful and famous people start pledging.  Joseph Goebbels couldn’t have polished it better.

Never mind the poop storm that would necessarily follow had George Bush powerfully called people to action and called upon them to pledge to help him enact his agenda – and then celebrities and culture leaders lined up to pledge to fulfill the Bush vision.

Many of the celebrities – inspired by Barack Obama – “pledge” to view and use energy the way that Obama would want them to.  What is not stated is how central energy is to Obama’s vision to fundamentally transform America into a different society.  And global warming is central to his goal to redistribute wealth.  If you don’t believe me, believe Obama’s environmental czar (and admitted communist) Van Johnson.

So say your pledge of allegiance, kids and young adults:

The AmeriCorps Pledge

I will get things done for America –
to make our people safer,
smarter, and healthier.

I will bring Americans together
to strengthen our communities.

Faced with apathy,
I will take action.

Faced with conflict,
I will seek common ground.

Faced with adversity,
I will persevere.

I will carry this commitment
with me this year and beyond.

I am an AmeriCorps member,
and I will get things done.

And just use your “2 and 2 make 5” logic your public school teacher taught you so you won’t think about how incredibly Marxist all of this sounds.

Remember how wonderful it was for you kids at the Kids’ Inaugural.

Of COURSE Obama isn’t trying to indoctrinate kids.  That is just so silly.

I keep thinking, “It can’t get any creepier” – and then it just keeps getting creepier.

Let me center myself:

“We’re gonna spread happiness! We’re gonna spread freeeeedom! Obama’s gonna change it, Obama’s gonna lead ‘em…” – so help me Marx.

Okay.  I’m all better now…

The Obama speech to the children will very likely sound innocent and innocuous.  But in the liberal public schools – which are and have been laboratories for leftist activism, it won’t be innocent or innocuous at all.  Unionized Government Teachers will be free to spin their own agendas onto Obama’s speech.

This isn’t happening now because Obama is worried that your six-year-old is going to decide to drop out of school.

The timing of this event isn’t happening by accident.  Don’t be naive.  Barack Obama’s healthcare agenda is under attack, and frankly in danger of becoming a major disaster for him.  The fact that Obama has already been busted for using a plant in the form of a cute 11-year old girl named Julia Hall (whose mother – Kathleen Manning – was a top state-level Obama campaign member) comes into play.  His administration has used children to advance his agenda before, and they will do so again.

If your kid comes home from school after ObamaDay and starts bugging you about health care, you’ll know why: it will be because Barack Obama despicably degenerated into trying to turn your child into his propagandist.
