Obama Doesn’t Care Anymore!!!!

Obama-the-King

It should be plainly obvious to everyone now that Obama doesn’t care about them or the country anymore. I never for once thought he did from the first day he arrived. One of our young aid workers is beheaded over there in Syria and he gives a three minute speech and heads out to the golf course. A sweet young female aid worker is killed by ISIS (or the JV team as he calls it) and he takes selfies. Now 21 coptic Christians in Libya from Egypt are brutally beheaded and put on video for the world to see and he heads out on another vacation paid for by our tax payer money  in Rancho Mirage, Calif. for a golf outing on a course owned by a billionaire with his buddies from Hawaii.

Jordan’s King reacted swiftly and immediately when their pilot was burned alive by killing his prisoners and bombing ISIS. Egypt’s king bombs them after his people were beheaded. Obama heads to the golf course.

As one commenter so aptly put it:

How tone deaf can he be? Twenty-one Egyptian Coptic Christians were beheaded for all the world to see; Copenhagen suffers a terrorist attack, the East Coast of the US continues to suffer from brutal weather, and the president of the US is rubbing elbows with billionaires and golfing in California without a worry in the world. He isn’t even trying to act likes he cares anymore, is he? I suspect the goal now is just to burn through as many tax payer dollars as he and his family can before they ride off into their very profitable post-presidential sunset.

I never thought I’d say this, but everyone who voted twice for this fraud now has blood on their hands. He has put Muslim Brotherhood people in every facet of government, opened our borders and is letting many Syrians in now and it is impossible to tell who is a jihadist and who isn’t and he enables terrorists. Our brave men and women fought and died to make this country safe from terrorists and he is letting them out of GITMO to return to the battlefield to wage war against us again.

Meanwhile Michelle and her entourage are skiing at Snowmass at Aspen this weekend. Michelle’s trip doesn’t seem to have made national news and might have escaped notice altogether had it not been for a traffic accident that slowed their motorcade.

Another comment I saw also said it perfectly:

Great LITTLE Vacation? When it comes to vacations, outings, and private parties, there is nothing little about any of it. They spend more on a single vacation, than 5 or more middle class families make in a year.
Their vacations, food tastes, thrill for fun and play, gives them a feeling of entitlement off the American tax payers dime.
They are, however, thanks to his position, raking in Billions of dollars for their retirement, also from the tax payers dime, in a manner of speaking. He went into the Whitehouse on a shoestring budget, and will exit it, in the Billionaire status.
I do not despise the man, or his family, but I do despise all that he stands, and does not stand, for.
If and when he does leave the Whitehouse, he will have done so as the biggest hoax, ever perpetrated upon America and it’s People. He will laugh all the way to the banks, and up his cuffs, that Americans were stupid enough to put a unknown, with no credentials, who had every pre election record of his sealed from our view, a Muslim, and Socialist, into the greatest seat our Country has. The joke is on us, and we will likely suffer the consequences for many years to come, as we attempt, likely unsuccessfully, to gain back our once Great standing in the World. He is the wrecking ball, which will leave us, completely beat down.

No, Obama just doesn’t care about us or the country. He never did in the first place. It’s all about him, power and furthering Islam as he hates Christianity. He only posed at being a Christian to  get elected.. Even his top advisor Valerie Jarrett recently said her job is to make this country more Islamic. Impeach him now. I don’t care if Biden takes over. It will only be for a short while anyway.

Defending Marriage

“Even though the Supreme Court made clear in United States v. Windsor that the federal government should defer to state ‘choices about who may be married,’ the Obama Administration has disregarded state marriage laws enacted by democratically-elected legislatures to uphold traditional marriage.”

“I support traditional marriage and we should reject attempts by the Obama Administration to force same-sex marriage on all 50 states. The State Marriage Defense Act helps safeguard the ability of states to preserve traditional marriage for their citizens.”

These statements were made by Republican Ted Cruz of Texas, along with a handful of other Senators they plan to introduce a bill allowing states to decide on the definition of marriage. Ben Carson has said, “The issue of marriage, an institution that has been so clearly defined and guarded by this nation for centuries should be decided upon by the state court as it pertains to that particular state’s residents.”

I have said many times, people just do not understand the ramifications of what will happen if same-sex marriage is to be. Once you alter the definition of marriage, and you institute marriage equality, it opens the door for marriage to be between what ever and who ever. It’s starting already, a teenager has revealed in an interview that she plans to marry her father and have children after dating for two years, marriage equality right?

“Everyone on my mom’s side of the family sees us as father and daughter, those who know that he’s my dad, and that we are engaged, include my father’s parents they can see we are happy together and they can’t wait for us to have babies, they treat us just like any other couple, the woman we live with, and my best friend.” I’m sorry, these people are sick, mentally.

This is only the beginning, if the Supreme Court upholds same sex marriage under the guise of marriage equality, next will come group marriages. Three wives for one husband or three husbands for one wife, and don’t think there aren’t nuts out there that would stand in line for a marriage license for their dog or horse. We are already seeing father and daughter, next will be mother and son, brother and sister and who knows what else after that.

Last year in New York the state’s highest court allowed the marriage between an uncle and niece. Once marriage acquires the status as a “right,” which it has never been, then any law that affects that right negatively becomes virtually impossible to defend. In other words, anything goes, having sex with a cow or a turtle is perfectly fine, marrying a ground hog or bullfrog is a right. This law has nothing to do with equality, but it strikes not only at the building block of civil society, the family, but at the authority of the state to regulate marriage, which it always had. Our Founding Fathers set this country up so that the states have the rights, not the Federal Government.

It seems to me that we already have a society that is crumbling; our values and morality are already shot. For those who think that marriage equality is only about homosexuals being able to marry, think again.

The Perfection Known as Obama?

SuperBama

Once again, this week many of Mr. Obama’s failed “policies” started to close in around him; military, economic, healthcare, and immigration to name a few.
Mr. Obama has, again, submitted a plan to defeat ISIS… ISIL… terrorists, I don’t even know what to call them so he will know who I’m talking about.
He wants a 3 year war powers authorization to finally defeat “the enemy.” But it still doesn’t include boots on the ground. Really? Even after many of his military advisors, many retired military advisors, and many of the allies that we have left in the Middle East say it won’t work without boots on the ground. This plan comes from a man who continually ignores the experts, a man who probably hasn’t ever played a game of “battleship,” let alone care about our military as a whole.
His last plan is working so well that 24 Christians were beheaded yesterday by ISIS affiliates and the successful example of his plan working in Yemen (his words not mine) is evidenced by their fall on the very day he claimed victory there.
Let’s pray for our troops in Iraq who are being surrounded as I write this. In the meantime, the White House is “monitoring” the situation. That’s just further proof that the Prez couldn’t care less about our men and their mental state. HEY PREZ… YO! Why don’t you grow a spine and send in our Air Force to wipe out anyone who even smells like they’re going hurt our guys? Show you care about US instead of THEM!!!
He has no problem housing, feeding and providing medical care for all those illegals within days of their arrival across our border, yet he is willing to keep letting our vets die long, slow deaths because they can’t get medical care, there aren’t enough facilities or doctors, and definitely, not enough caring! Apparently, there is no executive order he can sign to speed it up!
Mr. Obama also has decided it would be good to do a “selfie” commercial to get young people to sign up for Obamacare. Please note that Obamacare is woefully low on membership. They are millions of subscribers behind from what they need since they were relying heavily “forcing” young people to sign up and carry the older folks who would be a drain the healthcare system.
It looks like a little more than 10 million have actually signed up “for REAL” and the system, based on early estimates, needs at least 13 million with a large number being young signees. So far, there have been numerous complaints about broken exchanges, cancelled coverage, higher premiums, and unaffordable deductibles. Oh, and let’s not forget that the administration cancelled over 6 million policies deemed to be substandard forcing just under 6 million to have to sign up on Obamacare to get insurance again. Forced healthcare!
Our economy is good? Well kind of!

Marco Rubio On Isreal,Netanyahu’s Speech Before Congress And Other Random Thoughts

I was recently channel surfing when I caught Marco Rubio addressing the senate on C-Span. I stopped to listen and was so impressed with his impassioned speech about supporting Isreal and Netanyahu.

Rubio was saying how Isreal has been our one ally in the Middle East and is surrounded by countries who want to destroy her. Marco pointed out that the Ayatollah Khomeni who is Iran’s leader not only views himself as leader of Iran, but leader of all muslims world wide. He believes that by having the muslim world clash with the non-muslim world and blowing Isreal off the map will bring about the 13th Imam or Holy Madi as they call it and Islam will dominate the world then. “I know this sounds like a fantasy,” Rubio said, ”but this is actually what he believes. That is why it is important that they don’t become a nuclear nation. They already have the enrichment and missile technology. All they need is the means to deliver them and that can be gotten anywhere from any country.”

Marco thought it was totally outrageous that Obama and other democrats are planning to boycott Netanyahu’s speech before congress in March and telling others not to attend either. He stressed the importance of defending our friend and ally and all should attend Netanyahu’s speech.

I can take Rubio’s scenario of Iran’s plan one step further. I have read generals who said all  Iran or any rogue nation has to do is send a nuclear missile from international waters 100 miles up and explode it. The sheer vibration would knock out most of our grids and that and the radiation that falls to the earth would kill most of the population. Any survivors that are left would be forced to convert to Islam. Yet Obama says climate change is more important than terrorism. That’s because he supports the muslims as he said he would and hates America……………Hillary Clinton has been awfully quiet lately. Could it be because of all the attention about her role in Benghazi again and the fact that it has come out that Bill has been meeting with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein on his private Island where he has known sex orgies? One of these so called “sex slaves”, Virginia Roberts, has claimed she saw Clinton there many times, but never saw him engage in any sexual acts. Logs from Epstein ‘s private jet show Clinton on there  many times. When Epstein was asked why Clinton was there, his answer was, “He owes me.” This could be why Hillary could be so quiet lately. It’s been 202 days since Hillary had a press conference and the last interview was a 184 days ago. No speaking engagement without significant fees 269 days. Elizabeth Warren is now emerging as the dem.  front runner.……….A group called Radical Brownies is indoctrinating young girls 8-11 years old telling them white policemen are killing  young black folks. The group’s mission statement says, ”The radical Brownies empower young girls of color so that they step into their collective  power, brilliance  and leadership in order to make the world a more RADICAL place.”

When the regular Girl Scouts of America was contacted they assured that they had no connection  with  the group. This is a reaction to Michael Brown. Brown was shot because he robbed a store. Intimidated an employee, charged a cop and grabbed for his gun. Black supporters of Brown and this group refuse to accept that. Statistics show black males make up about 7% of the U.S. population but commits 53% of all the murders in the U.S. and 52% of all robberies………..The American embassy in Yemen has closed after a complete collapse of the American supported government there. Obama said his strategy to deal with ISIS is molded after the success of the government in Yemen. Well DUHHHH!!!! I guess that strategy wasn’t so successful. This is a huge gain for the Iranians . In the last six months we’ve been using a minimum amount of combat forces everywhere. That is his strategy. He’s leading from behind as always. He looks at using ground forces as taboo. He said no ground troops then is putting ground troops in but for a limited time with lots of restrictions so why bother? He has no commitment to win, it’s for political cover and he becomes Netanyahu’s worst enemy. He’s not helping stability in the region and he still refuses to say ‘Radical Islam” and says climate change is more important than terrorism. What a mess!!!!

Like Obamacare? You’ll Love what New FCC Rules will do to the Internet

FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai holding new Net Neutrality rules.

Like a cancerous growth spreading throughout an otherwise healthy body, government overreach, regulation, and control of every aspect of our free-market system continues to expand, infesting and damaging economic activity one organ, or industry, at a time. The Internet, that bastion of freedom and entrepreneurship, is about to become the government’s newest victim.

fcc-chief-on-net-neutrality-trust-meFederal Communications Commission (FCC) chairman, Tom Wheeler, an Obama appointee, is presenting the president’s “net neutrality” plan for the commission’s vote in two weeks. As promoted publicly by the administration, even on the White House website, the concept sounds meritoriously egalitarian, preventing internet providers from doling out more bandwidth to some paying customers, like Netflix, than others. But it’s clearly designed to facilitate much more.

The administration’s plan calls for reclassification of the Internet, in toto, as a Title II telecommunications service. Such a designation would allow the government to regulate the Internet based on the Communications Act of 1934, just like the telephone industry.

FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai holding new Net Neutrality rules.

FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai holding new Net Neutrality rules.

The 332 page proposal has not yet been made public, though the recommendations are widely known. The “net neutrality” proposal wording was enough for one FCC commissioner to conduct a news conference this week to warn the public of the “secret plan to regulate the Internet.” FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai said the plan was even “worse than I imagined,” and will invariably lead to “rate regulation and taxes.”

The full report and recommendation will not be released to the public until after the FCC approves it at their Feb. 26th meeting. FCC Chairman Wheeler must subscribe to the Nancy Pelosi regulatory and legislative mantra, that it has to be passed so we can know what’s in it. Yet another administration slap in the face of “transparency.”

As reported in National Journal, commissioner Pai acknowledged that the actual regulations take up just eight pages of the document. Another 79 pages are citations of the Communications Act, which will also dictate the practices of broadband providers. The rest of the document is a summary of public feedback and reasoning for the FCC’s decision, which Pai said is “sprinkled” with unofficial rules.

87293_600According to Pai, about the worst part of the proposal is exercising FCC dominion based on Title II. By implementing “net neutrality” under Title II, regardless of the prima facie reason for the new order, the FCC is “giving itself the authority to determine whether a variety of practices—including prices—are ‘just and reasonable.’” In other words, it’s the camel nose in the tent door metaphor. Pretty soon the camel (government regulators) occupies the tent and the providers are out on their ears.

The evidence seems to be on Pai’s side. He explains specifically, “The plan repeatedly states that the FCC will apply sections 201 and 202 of the Communications Act, including their rate regulation provisions, to determine whether prices charged by broadband providers are ‘unjust or unreasonable.'”

Commissioner Pai cautioned that not only does the proposal “open the door to billions of dollars in new taxes on broadband,” but that with the Title II reclassification, technically the government could exercise control over content, as well.

net-neutrality-comic-3Current broadband consumption illustrates how ludicrous the proposal is. According to Sandvine data, “in home data consumption is approximately 150 to 200 times greater than mobile consumption. Google (including YouTube) and Netflix account for 45% of fixed broadband traffic. iTunes, Facebook, Amazon and Hulu account for 6% in aggregate. Google and Facebook account for 42% of mobile data. Netflix, Pandora and iTunes take an additional 14%.”

According to the new rules, broadband usage must be shared equally, without allowing providers the ability to adjust for consumption and demand, and other factors. So if you think you’re sick of seeing the spinning “buffering” wheel when watching video online, you “ain’t seen nothin’ yet!” Welcome to the world of net neutrality, a euphemism for broadband socialism – everyone gets their “fair share.”

These are the reasons John Chambers, CEO of Cisco Systems, said, “To go back to a 1950s voice mentality with Title II and net neutrality would be a tremendous mistake for our country… this is a very bad decision. I think the whole country has to rally [against it]. This will cost the country jobs and economic leadership.”

The first step of governmental encroachment into an area of the private sector is always the most crucial. For once the proverbial foot is in the door, they just keep pushing and shoving until the door is clear off the hinges, and they control the industry. We’ve seen it time and time again, from banking, telephony, energy, manufacturing, and most recently, health care insurance. The promises are always minimalist, yet the eventuality always exceeds even extreme expectations. Consequently control increases, costs of production and services increase, and those costs are passed from companies in the private sector down to consumers. And the process always seems most costly and punitive to the middle and lower classes.

156139_600Ronald Reagan explained this governmental cycle years ago. “If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.” Except in the case of “net neutrality,” they’re regulating it first, and then will come the taxation, the fees, and perhaps even control over accessibility and content.

We’ve seen just recently how governmental control over private sector services changes an industry dramatically, a la Obamacare. It appears we’re about to see “Obamacare” for the Internet, if the FCC rules go into effect. But don’t worry, they promise us that everything will be just fine. If you like your broadband, you can keep it. That sounds eerily familiar.

Do You Know What You Stand For?

Confused OTF

Getting ready for one of my faith radio segments, I read that a private, Catholic school was suspending, and trying to fire, a professor for a blog post he had written. He called attention to a class where the substitute teacher told a student they couldn’t discuss gay marriage because it fostered homophobic feelings. Seriously?First, it is a private college, so I guess they can dictate what is acceptable to speak about and what isn’t. But, don’t people go to college to foster open, honest, intellectual discussion? Or is it now a place to foster politically correct (PC) conversation only?

Phobia is the fear of something. I don’t know anyone who is afraid of gay people or gay married people or gay divorced people or (insert other combination here).

Not believing in something or disagreeing with someone is not a fear! I don’t believe in allowing my 6 year-old grandchild to watch an “R” rated, sex-filled, foul-mouthed movie. By the Left’s definition of “phobic” I have a sex and foul language phobia.

It’s much easier to have honest conversation if you use the words properly. The only reason not to is because you don’t have the facts to win or you don’t really care about the facts and you just don’t want to have an honest conversation.

When people don’t have guidelines or don’t live by the guidelines and rules they say they believe in it’s very confusing for those around them and for themselves.

In the above example, this is a private Catholic school. If I were still a Catholic I would send my child there to strengthen their Catholic foundation and to get a good education in a Catholic environment. Simple, I understand what all those words mean.

So when the Catholic university got mad at a tenured professor for writing a piece about the student who was told that speaking about gay marriage would foster more homophobia in students he was just as confused because the Catholic bible also speaks against same-sex relationships.

I wonder if they are teaching that the Virgin Mary may very well have not been a virgin because many young girls were having sex in those villages? I’m just sayin’… apparently you can make it up as you go!

So why would it be an issue to discuss gay marriage? Are they no longer a Catholic organization? Can someone be a Christian and follow Mohammed? Can someone be a Muslim and follow Buddha? Of course not.

You cannot be a Catholic and make it up as you can go along. They are a very disciplined and, unless you attend the “Nancy Pelosi School of Catholicism” you have it all wrong.

Obama: The Fool On The Hill

There is no doubt in my mind that Obama is the worst president in my lifetime, even worse than Carter. Since I am not a presidential historian, I don’t know if he is the worst president ever, but he just might be. Over the past few years of Obama’s reign I have called him many names, names I cannot say in public, but I am sure most of you have done the same as well. But now I realize the man is just a plain fool.

In a February 4th interview on CNN Obama had the nerve to say; “I Saved the American economy, made the US stronger, more prosperous, safer, more influential than it was when I took office.” Now if this doesn’t prove that Obama is living in La,La land, I don’t know what will. His statement proves only one thing that Obama is truly delusional, he lives in a bubble surrounded by yes men who pamper him and tell him what he wants to hear, but that is how he lived his entire life.

It is a fact that Obama was raised a Muslim, he was surrounded and taught by people who did not like America much and that has stuck with him his entire life. So it should be no surprise to anyone that his sympathies are on the side of Muslims and his speech at the National Prayer Breakfast proves it.

Going back one-thousand years he said, “And lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place – remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ.”  It is obvious that he is trying to justify in some distorted way, the atrocities that Muslim terrorists are doing today. Robert Jeffress, the pastor of First Baptist Church of Dallas said, “When Christians act violently they are  acting in opposition to the teachings of their founder, Jesus Christ, They cannot cite a single verse in the New Testament that calls for violence against unbelievers. On the other hand, radical Islamists can point to a number of verses in the Koran calling for Muslims to “crucify the infidels.”

What kills me about Obama’s speech is the Left is always criticizing Conservatives for living in the 1950’s, yet Obama has to go back one-thousand years to justify his thinking. Can it be that Obama had a Freudian slip when he said, “We are summoned to push back against those who would distort our religion for their nihilistic ends.” “Our religion,” did he just admit that he is a Muslim?

The Crusades were a response to hundreds of years of Muslim aggression; it seems that Muslims have not changed in a thousand years, but Christians have. Obama did not mention radical Islam or jihadists or Islamic extremists, why can’t he admit what the rest of the world knows? Because he still believes that by being nice to our enemies and not hurting their feelings and not offending them will make them stop beheading and burning people.

Two days after news emerged that ISIS had burned a captive Jordanian pilot to death, the king of Jordan unleashed a bomb attack, when an American was beheaded, Obama went out and played a round of golf with some of his friends. Obama gives Iran everything it wants on the march to nuclear weapons and invites the murderous Muslim Brotherhood to the White House, but won’t meet with Republicans or the prime minister of Israel. The Beetles wrote a song called “The Fool On The Hill” one verse went like this. “But nobody listens to him they can see that he is just a fool” Obama is truly the biggest fool on Capitol Hill.

Obama-Care And The Ford Edsel

There is no doubt that Obama’s crowning achievement, Obama-Care, has turned out to be as much as a success as the Ford Edsel. Why the very word “Edsel” became a popular symbol for failure, just like Obama-Care will turn out to be. As everyone knows by now, Obama-Care was nothing more than a government takeover of the health-care system and a gigantic transfer of wealth scheme.

Even Senior Democrats who were vital in writing and promoting Obama-Care appear to be having a change of heart. Sen. Chuck Schumer, the upper chamber’s No. 3 Democrat recently said, “Unfortunately, Democrats blew the opportunity the American people gave them, we took their mandate and put all of our focus on the wrong problem — health care reform.” “Americans were crying out for the end to the recession, for better wages and more jobs, not changes in health care,” he said.

Federal actuaries predict that health spending increases will nearly double soon, averaging 6 percent a year through 2023, pushing total health spending to a staggering 19.3 percent of GDP, up from 16.6 percent pre-Obama-Care, so much for Obama-Care controlling costs. Truth is, four years after its passage, Obama-Care has managed to cover only one out of four previously uninsured people, spending $57 billion to do it, free health-care, I don’t think so.

Now we find out it will cost the taxpayers, $50,000 for every person who gets health insurance under the Obama-Care law, the Congressional Budget Office revealed. It will take $1.993 trillion, a number that looks like $1,993,000,000,000, to provide insurance subsidies to poor and middle-class, while only bringing in $643 billion in new taxes, penalties and fees related to the Obama-Care law. Obama pledged to members of Congress in 2009, as his signature insurance overhaul law was being debated, that ‘the plan I’m proposing will cost around $900 billion over 10 years.’ Either he lied or he is incompetent, my money is on he lied.

For years, Harvard’s experts on health economics and policy have advised presidents and Congress on how to provide health benefits to the nation at a reasonable cost. But those remedies will now be applied to the Harvard faculty, and the professors are in an uproar. Richard F. Thomas, a Virgil scholar, said the health-care changes are “deplorable. They are deeply regressive.” And these are the people who supported the health-care law, Oh well, be careful what you wish for.

The problem with Obama-Care, liberals argue, is that it didn’t go far enough; we should have an entirely government-run health-care system. Well just ask the people of Vermont, who opted to have their own government health-care system. Vermonters were stunned to discover just how much their new “free” health care was going to cost. Paying for Green Mountain Care would have required a 160% increase in state taxes by 2019, as much as $2.9 billion annually. The state’s top income tax rate would have been raised from 8.95% to an astounding 18%. For high earners that would mean a combined federal-state income tax burden of 56%. Even lower-income Vermonters would have seen a substantial tax hike.

Because even these enormous tax hikes wouldn’t have provided enough money, Green Mountain Care would have cut payments to doctors and hospitals by an estimated 16%. That would have forced many doctors out of the state and threatened the viability of local hospitals. It is no wonder that Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin, a Democrat, announced that the state was giving up and abandoning its plans for Green Mountain Care. It seems that Socialized medicine sounds great, until you are forced to live it.

A little over a year ago my doctor who I had for years went to a strictly cash business because of Obama-Care. When I went to a new doctor there was a sign over the receptionist’s desk that read; All deductibles must be paid before service is provided.

And the law will still leave ‘between 29 million and 31 million’ non-elderly Americans without medical insurance, says the CBO.  This can’t be the change America wanted.

Why are vaccinated people so afraid of an outbreak?

ShotVaccineInjection-Attrib-Flickr-ElAlvi-65894052-3483848619-421x336

If vaccines are so effective and safe, then why are the approximately 93% of the population who are vaccinated for measles, so afraid of the 7% of the population who chose not to vaccinate? The vaccination supposedly makes you immune so that you cannot contract the disease, right? So what are all these vaccinated people afraid of? I can’t figure out this logic. In reality, the only people who should be concerned about an outbreak are the people who are not vaccinated, because the rest of us who are, are already protected. And we’re continuing to talk about this, why?

The Real JV Team Emerges!

10959643_402224036601260_1161898350115992215_n

Talk about a “haunting comment.” This will go down as one of President Obama’s all time.

Can you imagine how thick the book of “Obama’s Greatest Faux Paus” will be? Or how many volumes it will be?  Do I need to list them all or do we have them memorized as some of us do the “Pledge of Allegiance”? (Notice I said some.)

Mr. Obama called ISIS a “JV Team” but now he says he didn’t quite say that. Just like he now says he didn’t quite say “you can keep your doctor” and he didn’t quite say “your health care premiums would be less than you cell phone bill.” It sure seems like we keep hearing him wrong and the internet records him wrong a lot too!

To continue, he called ISIS a JV Team because he felt they didn’t lack the brain power, resources, and commitment that it takes to go after the Pro Teams, like the U.S., Saudi Arabia, Syria and God only knows who else he was thinking of.

You see the reason you have a JV Team is because the players are younger, less experienced, and need more time to practice together. You don’t usually want them on the big boys team because they would drag them down.

That “JV Team” that Mr. Obama tagged, aka ISIS, is now in control of a very large part of the Middle East. They are responsible for the murder of tens of thousands of innocent people. They are part of the reason oil prices are falling as they steal oil, load it up in stolen tankers, and sell it on the open market. They are instilling fear in and around Europe and parts of the U.S. These junior league boys are acting like, and accomplishing, senior league goals.

Why? Because they are committed at all costs, even to the point of death. That’s what makes them senior league. They are willing to give it all for the end game, and when they are up against it, they give some more. Their leaders speak out and stand behind their misguided principles and get the resources they need, by any means, to ensure they win.

Enter the “White House JV Team” (WHJV), the “Coyotes” ( I use coyotes because zoologist say they are the most cowardly animal and only attack when the enemy is well outnumbered.) This administration has gained control of one of the most powerful and feared fighting forces on the planet since the Roman army and has effectively turned them in to the most unreliable fighting force on the planet. And it’s no fault of the capable men and women that serve in the military.

This president knows more about more things than everyone of our great thinkers and philosophers before him. Just ask him and he tell you so!

I say this because he puts together military, economic, and social issue committees and takes little to none of the suggested actions from these committees.

He makes every mistake a first year law or medical student makes. Most students feel they have the answers after their first year in school and are willing to tell you what’s wrong with you before you even ask.

He put together a military commission on how to deal with ISIS and the threats in the Middle East. After they returned with their findings, mind you the committee was made up of seasoned military experts, he decided they were wrong and took it in another direction.  Ignoring the experts. A serious JV move.

To the jobs committee, he appointed the head of G.E. to chair it. The guy who took the majority of U.S. jobs overseas. Makes sense? Not so much. And once again implements almost none of the committee suggestions.

He gathered some well-known economists together for another committee, but none from the opposing side of the economic aisle. And when the committee came back with their recommendations, he implemented some but not the majority.

Whose Side Is Obama And Holder On Anyway

Have you ever wondered why Obama and Holder always seem to be on the side of the enemy? Why are they so afraid to even admit who the enemy is? It seems to me that they have no problem blaming Republicans for everything, but refuse to criticize these Islamic Muslim terrorists, I do not understand why that is so hard to say.

Obama seems to have no problem with releasing terrorists back into the fight; closing Gitmo is an obsession with him, even though it is harmful to America. Now he finds it necessary to negotiate with terrorists, giving back five terrorists for a deserter, a man who disgraced his uniform. I guess Obama doesn’t seem to understand that by negotiating with terrorists, it will only embolden them to kidnap more people.

Let’s face it, our enemies do not fear America and they think Obama is a joke. With over 70% of the American people feeling that terror is their main concern even over the economy, Obama refuses to throw everything we have at those that want to destroy us. From Day One, this administration has downplayed the terrorist threat from Islamic extremists. It declared the terrorist attack at Fort Hood, Texas, in 2009 as “workplace violence.” It pulled all US troops out of Iraq, allowing ISIS to move in and create a training ground for terrorists. Protracted negotiations with Iran have allowed that rogue nation to fortify and beef up its nuclear facilities.

Even Sen. Robert Menendez, former chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee and a Democrat, when talking about Obama’s Iran’s nuclear policy says President Obama’s statements on the issue “sounds like talking points coming out of Tehran.”  Obama even had to apologize for not sending a high-level official to the unity rally in Paris protesting the murders at Charlie Hebdo by Islamic terrorists.

Holder is just as bad as his buddy Obama, he wants to give terrorists the same rights as citizens, he boasted in 2010 that failed shoe bomber Richard Reid, who was not an American citizen, was “advised of his right to remain silent and to consult with an attorney within five minutes of being removed from the aircraft.” Holder had no concern over losing the opportunity to interrogate Reid about his backers, as well as other possible terrorist attacks.

It was Holder who decided that 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his co-conspirators should be tried in a civilian courtroom in New York City, just blocks from where the twin towers of the World Trade Center once stood. Counterterrorism experts say that would have been a propaganda coup for al Qaeda and a security nightmare for the city.

Former US Attorney General Michael Mukasey pointed out what Eric Holder doesn’t seem to understand: “It is a mockery of the rule of law to take people who are charged with violating all the rules of war and put them in a situation that’s better than the one they would have been in if they followed the rules of war. It looks like amateur night at the Justice Department and made the US “look weak.”

From his first day in office, Holder began reshaping the Justice Department’s attitude towards terrorism. He hired radical attorneys who believe that freeing dangerous terrorists was an “assumption of risk” that must be taken to “cleanse the nation of Guantanamo’s moral stain.” There is no doubt in my mind that Eric Holder and his buddy Obama have weakened national security.

Obama was brought up as a Muslim, this is fact, and you are not going to tell me that he does not sympathize with Muslims and it is directly having an effect on his decision making on how to deal with the enemy. Right now we have a president and Attorney General, who say they want to defeat the enemy, but they won’t admit who that enemy is. On a resent trip to India Obama gave a speech where he even put the blame of global warming on America. Which is nothing new, because he believes all that is wrong with the world is America’s fault.

Now Obama has the nerve to say that the Taliban is not a terrorist organization, whose side is Obama and Holder really on? It beats the hell out of me.

The Darwin Award goes to Ed Schultz!

Darwin1-614x336

merican Sniper is breaking box office records. Those who have seen the movie have great things to say about it. The realities of war and what these guys go through comes through loud and clear, except for a few Hollywood elitists.

The same groups of people who have no problem making movies glorifying hit men, prostitutes, mafia, and “shoot ‘em up, bang-bang” movies seem to have a big problem with American Sniper. It just shows you how full of themselves they really are.

But the guy that really takes the cake in showing the hatred some people have for America is Ed Schultz. Ed believes that if you don’t think like he does as to what American patriotism is, then basically, you’re a moron because he is the all-knowing, all-seeing all… well, he’s god. At least in his own mind!

Where are these cowards (guys like Michael Moore, Seth Rogan, and our buddy, Ed Schultz) when it comes to investigating what is truly taking place in the Middle East? Why aren’t they talking about the stories where, because of us, kids can play in streets again and businesses can actually operate safely and women can go to school again? Where were they when thousands of Christian kids were being slaughtered? When the Boko Haram crew took (and continues to take) kids from schools and sell them as slaves? We hear nothing from these cowards.

However, it’s easy for them to criticize our military. They won’t hunt you down and kill you for criticizing them!

Ed’s recent rant about how bad American Sniper was began with the tired, old, worn out “Bush lied people died” ………

That Was No SOTU – It Was A Populist Wish-List

stateoftheunion

It is regrettable that we no longer have a true “State of the Union” (SOTU) speech. Rather than hearing a recapitulation of the condition of the nation and where it’s headed, we get what appears to be little more than another campaign speech replete with a veritable Christmas-list of populist proposals and recommendations. Predictably, there were errors, omissions, and outright prevarications, and very little mention of the problems that have been exacerbated over the past several years, in the president’s speech this week.

barack_obama_state_union-14First, however, a confession of sorts is in order. I didn’t watch the speech. When I was in college, I loved being lectured to by my ISU professors who were knowledgeable, competent, and capable. After all, that’s what I paid them for. Likewise, we pay our governmental leaders to be knowledgeable, competent, and capable and to keep their oath of office, to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. When all they do proves their incompetence, and they obviously lied when they took the oath, I’m not going to subject myself to their self-aggrandizing propaganda. After all, I’m not a masochist, and I find it increasingly difficult to resist the impulse to throw things at my TV in response to superfluous rhetoric, grandstanding, self-congratulations, and mendacity. So I read his speeches, instead.

color-obama-st-of-union-webMuch of Obama’s lecture Tuesday night was dedicated to his inexorable class warfare theme, pitting the middle class (who have been most adversely affected by the policies of the past six years) against the wealthy (who have done better than anyone during this administration). In advance of the delivery, he media had hyped this iteration of the SOTU as his “Robin Hood” speech. The metaphor hardly seems appropriate. Since Robin Hood stole from the Sheriff of Nottingham (not the rich from whom the sheriff had extorted the funds). As the head of the government, the President is essentially the Sheriff of Nottingham, who’s doing the extorting.

The President said, “Tonight, after a breakthrough year for America, our economy is growing and creating jobs at the fastest pace since 1999.” It would be wonderful for the nation if his policies had been conducive to our economic recovery and accelerated job growth. However, as we’ve documented before, these are occurring in spite of his policies, not because of them. It’s amazing what capitalistic economies can do when new obstacles are no longer being hurled in the way to thwart and stymy them!

stateoftheunion“We are as free from the grip of foreign oil as we’ve been in almost 30 years. … Today, America is number one in oil and gas. … And thanks to lower gas prices and higher fuel standards, the typical family this year should save about $750 at the pump,” Obama declared. Again, this is with no help from his administration. The massive growth in domestic oil production has been primarily on state and private lands, while his administration has done everything possible to curtail it on federal ground and waterways. And it’s been primarily with technology opposed by his party and his administration. And there’s the power of capitalism again – simple supply and demand benefiting the consumer with increased competition.

Enigmatically, the President queried, “Will we allow ourselves to be sorted into factions and turned against one another? Or will we recapture the sense of common purpose that has always propelled America forward? … A better politics is one where we debate without demonizing each other.” It’s pretty difficult to take this counsel from one who has spent the past six years polarizing and dividing, based on income, party affiliation, ideology, and color.

sotu“In two weeks, I will send this Congress a budget filled with ideas that are practical, not partisan,” he said. This is encouraging. If he comes through on the promise, it will be the first time he’s offered anything to congress in six years that isn’t partisan. We won’t hold our breath.

“In the past year alone about 10 million uninsured Americans finally gained the security of health coverage.” This reminded me of an email I received from a friend last year that summarized the 2700 page ObamaCare legislation in four simple sentences. A. In order to insure the uninsured, we first have to un-insure the insured. B. Next, we require the newly un-insured to be re-insured. C. To re-insure the newly un-insured, they are required to pay extra charges to be re-insured. And D. The extra charges are required so that the original insured, who became un-insured and then became re-insured, can pay enough extra so that the original un-insured can be insured, free of charge to them. That explains a great deal of the President’s “10 million” figure.

“I am sending this Congress a bold new plan to lower the cost of community college — to zero.” I’m always amazed at the liberal mind that struggles with economic realities. The cost doesn’t go away, it’s just redistributed, or paid by someone else. And to the liberal politician, it’s always the taxpayer! Never mind that the cost is a scant $60 billion. What is that to a politician who can make a grandiose promise – and make someone else pay for it?

obama-hot-air-453x604It really would have been nice to hear an actual analysis of the State of the Union. But alas, we just got another populist campaign speech. And even as such, it wasn’t much different than the hand-dryer in the lavatory that had a sticker attached which declared, “Press button for a speech from the president.”
