Anti-American Hustle

Anti-American Hustlers

“Yes we can’t!” – Sergio Aragonés

“President Obama smoked so much pot in college he never learned to spell. Which is why he’s confusing the word “ruining” the country with “running” the country.” – Kilburn Hall

“‘Wann dem Führer wuste!’ – If the Führer only knew! – This was an expression common during the Third Reich among those who supposed that Hitler could do no wrong. The implication being that anything in Germany that was not quite right was so only because Hitler didn’t know about it.” – Yahoo

“We need a direct repudiation of Barack Obama and everything for which he stands.” – Monica Crowley

If as many citizens believed in preventive politics as they do preventive medicine, Barack Obama and most of the Democratic Party would be quarantined in the Guantanamo Bay detention camp with the rest of America’s enemies.  And, as phase 2 of their Unaffordable Care Act kicks in, a majority of the nation’s voters might finally be willing to send ‘em there:

First-time insurance purchasers, especially those living paycheck to paycheck, will be shocked by ObamaCare’s high deductibles, about $3,000 for the silver plan (the most commonly selected) and $5,000 for the bronze plan (the most affordable).

Basically, you’ll have to pay thousands out of pocket for appointments, tests and prescriptions until you reach your deductible.

Millennials who heard Obama say … that they can buy a health plan for the price of a cellphone contract won’t be laughing when they realize what the $5,000 deductible means. (Coming Attractions For The Obamacare Disaster Film)

 With deductibles like these — and with the IRS hounding you for penalty fees if you don’t enroll — anyone running for office in the foreseeable future with a (D) after their name might do better if they ran instead for any aircraft willing to fly them somewhere that lacks an extradition treaty. Cuba, perhaps. They’d feel right at home.

“Hello, Ball!”

Obie 1_cartoon

(Norton is teaching Ralph how to play golf) “First, you step up and address the ball.”

(To golf ball) “Hellooo, ball!” – The Honeymooners

***

“It is difficult, if not impossible to recall a US politician so uniformly out of step with traditional American ideals of capitalism, liberty, patriotism, military, honor, loyalty, sovereignty, faith, Islam and Christianity.” – Kelly O’Connell

Any time a prevaricating ‘progressive’ like Barack Obama joins a race baiting mob informant like Al Sharpton  to address a gaggle of brain-dead Democrats, you’ll have more incurable fantasists in one place than exist anywhere outside of the Rehabilitation Through The Arts program at Sing Sing Correctional Facility.

Obama To Sharpton’s Group: ID Laws Are ‘Real Voter Fraud’ (The Blaze)

President Barack Obama tore into state voter ID laws Friday when speaking to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, accusing Republicans of trying to block minorities, women and seniors from voting and calling the laws a fraud … Obama said most studies show voter fraud is not a problem. “The real voter fraud is those that try to deny our rights by making arguments about voter fraud…”

Bunco ArtistsOf course voter fraud is not a problem — for Democrats.  After all, the recently risen dead and their friends — who appear only during elections — do not, as a general rule, cast ballots for Republicans.  

North Carolina Answers Democrats’ Question ‘What Vote Fraud?’ N.C. Proves Multiple Voting Occurs And Dead Cast Ballots (Washington Times)

It’s an article of the faith of the Democrats that voter fraud is nothing to worry about because it never happens. Kim Strach, the North Carolina director of elections, has living proof — and some dead proof — otherwise.

She has identified 35,750 persons who voted in North Carolina sharing a name, birth date and Social Security number with someone who voted in another state in 2012. Another 81 North Carolinians voted after they died.

Ghosts have no constitutional rights, not yet, but Barack Obama and the Democrats think rigor mortis need not keep voters from practicing good citizenship.

America after Obama (if there is an America after Obama) will need more repairs than New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.  Here’s a few ideas to get the ball rolling:

Obama & Catastrophe as Public Policy: Marx’s Revolution Cometh (CFP)

The question of, “What can be done about Barack?” is an important but vexing subject which every patriotic American must spend time pondering. There will be many answers to this question, but here are 10 suggestions, in order of most influential. To survive Barack’s naked socialism, America must:

  1. Experience a revival to regain our spiritual edge.
  2. Figure out how to get parents to marry and stay together.
  3. Rebuild a quality education system, while teaching government, US history, logic, rhetoric and capitalism.
  4. Update and rebuild the US military without drastic cuts.
  5. Pass laws favoring work over welfare.
  6. Strengthen borders and punish illegals while encouraging desirable foreigners to enter lawfully.
  7. Reduce and eliminate deficit spending.
  8. Restore patriotism and America first pride.
  9. Restore integrity to US science.
  10. Make every change available to build up US business, while reforming the tax code.

Eric Holder’s Friendship Bracelets

Eric the Red

“I have a very strict gun control policy: if there’s a gun around, I want to be in control of it.” – Clint Eastwood

“A woman who demands further gun control legislation is like a chicken who roots for Colonel Sanders.” – Larry Elder

“Remember the first rule of gunfighting … have a gun.” – Jeff Cooper

“When seconds count, the cops are just minutes away.” – Clint Smith

“In England, if you commit a crime, the police don’t have a gun and you don’t have a gun. If you commit a crime, the police will say ‘Stop, or I’ll say stop again.’” Robin Williams

“A fear of weapons is a sign of retarded sexual and emotional maturity.” – Sigmund Freud

“The Attorney General asserted that he has a ‘vast amount of discretion’ about how he does or doesn’t choose to enforce our nation’s laws. Which doesn’t make them laws so much as whimsical suggestions.” – Stilton Jarlsberg

It’s interesting, isn’t it, that Democratic politicians, the most rabid of whom are protected 24/7 by armed bodyguards, are forever demanding the confiscation of everyone’s means of defense except their own.  The motives of these left-wing elitists would be less suspect if they concentrated on disarming criminals instead of law abiding gun owners, but then that would make them conservatives, and we wouldn’t be having this discussion in the first place.

Radical in '73 Radical in '14The contemptible Eric Holder, Barack Obama’s increasingly testy Attorney General, has spent his time in office enforcing only those federal laws which he and the rest of Obama’s executive branch radicals deem agenda-worthy, while blithely ignoring the rest.  Holder calls such arbitrary malfeasance “prosecutorial discretion”  and cites “racism” and the enmity of the “gun lobby” as the only reasons he and his boss have encountered any resistance to their unconstitutional schemes.

Attorney General Holder dropped the race card on the table today, throwing down a clear suggestion that the mistreatment he thinks he’s getting from Republicans is based not on the content of his character – which actually, it is – but on the color of his skin.

Charging “racism” is, of course, the preferred defense of every scoundrel of color in these enlightened times, as well as being the approved rejoinder of the Democratic Party to anyone astute enough to disagree with their boneheaded ideas.The Real Racists

Obama, Holder, and the rest of the Red-winged radicals currently roosting in the nation’s capitol are not our best; and, given the disastrous nature of the policies foisted on us over the last 5 years, they’re a long way from being our brightest.  Take Holder’s latest hare-brained proposal — fitting lawful gun owners with government tracking bracelets:

… when some screaming maniac chainsaws his way into your house on a dark and stormy night and is shredding the closet door behind which your terrified family is huddling, do you want your gun disabled because of a complicated, fallible electronic ID bracelet designed by the same techno-idiots who came up with Healthcare.gov? (“Error 404 – Try Shooting Later!”)

Clearly, there’s a pretty wild disparity between Holder’s belief that such an ID system for gun owners is simply “common sense,” while a photo ID system for voters is, in his words, an “aggressive step to curtail the voting rights of African-Americans.” (Byte the Bullet)

On the other hand, there are lots of dangerous people in this country who need to be closely monitored.  And most of ‘em have a (D) after their names.

Foul Balls

Good To Be The King

“The left is doing what they always do when their policies fail: make everything about race, instead. If the Obama presidency itself is what’s failing, then his whole presidency—the one that was supposed to usher in a post-racial era—must be all about race, too.” – Robert Tracinski

“The daily news rundown is whatever’s important to the Democrat Party, and that’s it.” – Rush Limbaugh

“All things considered, when liberals merely settle for lying, they’re being on their best behavior.” – Burt Prelutsky

“Memo to History: the vocation of Community Organizer is a poor résumé choice for America’s highest civilian office” – Glenn Fairman

How bad is it?  67% of the 24 years preceding the presidential election of 2016 will have dawned with a leftist occupying the seat of power.  Two conclusions can be immediately drawn from this depressing reality: one, the Republican Party has a decided knack for providing candidates who possess the allure and charisma of sink hair, and two, the modern American body politic, all things being equal, now includes more King’s men than Constitutional patriots. Taken as a whole, We The People have grown as dumb as a bag of counterfeit tuppence.

Consider the unrelenting disaster that has been the administration of Barack Obama. It’s amazing that even his dog still approves of him, let alone 42% of his countrymen; given the sorry state of modern American public education,  it should come as no grand surprise. I’ve known fish that are better schooled than most of today’s citizens. As a nation, we’ve transitioned from the Land of the Free to the Land of the Free Lunch — free, at least, for the 50% of us who gleefully sponge off the others.

The mindset of the modern liberal is probably best displayed by the homicidal fantasies of a New York Times scrivener who seems to be watching entirely too much television:

Like many viewers of the hit fantasy show, “Game Of Thrones,” New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd enjoys escaping reality for a few hours and fantasizing about brutally murdering her political opponents.

Dowd wrote in her Sunday column that she wished Washington resembled Westoros — and that she could witness the murders of entire families, gaze upon stakes bearing defeated foes’ heads, and watch House Republicans get their throats slit a la the infamous Red Wedding …

A world where Republican Sens. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul can’t be mutilated and where Republicans can’t be locked into the House chamber to be savagely stabbed to death isn’t worth living in, Dowd complained.

liberals-termitesWell, you can’t really hold a lefty’s psychosis against ‘em.  After all, who on the right has not imagined burying Dirty Harry Reid or the Barbary buffoon Nancy Pelosi neck-deep beside a hill of Solenopsis ants and drizzling warm honey over their heads?  Personally, I’ve whiled away many a happy hour on a rainy afternoon daydreaming of a device capable of whisking Barack Obama and his entire cadre of mad Marxists on a one-way trip to Vietnam’s A Shau Valley, circa 1968. But in the real world, the only machines capable of banishing the socialists back to the Phantom Zone are the ones that count the ballots.  And they may be rigged in favor of the house:

In many of the most important swing states it was being reported that Romney voters were claiming that when they tried to cast votes for Romney that the voting machines changed their votes to Obama instead.

Liberals like the murderous Ms. Dowd would never countenance such anti-democratic skullduggery, of course.  They insist that every vote must count — and some must count more than once.  They will tell you that electoral fraud is as rare a thing as a close encounter with a Sasquatch, and the requiring of personal identification in order to exercise the franchise is a plot hatched by nefarious right-wing racists in order to suppress the rights of minorities.  But the hard evidence of 2012 would seem to indicate that  the only voter suppression taking place was of citizens desirous of electing Mitt Romney as president:

It’s one thing for a Democratic presidential candidate to dominate a Democratic city like Philadelphia, but check out this head-spinning figure: In 59 voting divisions in the city, Mitt Romney received not one vote. Zero. Zilch.

These are the kind of numbers that send Republicans into paroxysms of voter-fraud angst … was there not one contrarian voter in those 59 divisions, where unofficial vote tallies have President Obama outscoring Romney by a combined 19,605 to 0?

Even the fabled 1927 Yankees couldn’t outscore an opponent by a margin like that — and Barack Obama ain’t Babe Ruth.

The Name Game

 The Shaming of the Shrew

“Like Manchurian candidates, we have been made into Manchurian consumers, who subconsciously buy when we are triggered by our brand masters.” – Bryant H. McGill

Name recognition.  It’s why corporations spend millions plastering their emblems on every stray sporting venue that seats more than 5 people; why jingle writers drive Cadillacs; why, in politics as in nursery schools, rhyme is always more effective than reason; and why Hillary Clinton, according to a March poll conducted by the Associated Press, is viewed more favorably than crab lice by 1,016 randomly chosen American idiots.

This is a woman, after all, who accomplished nothing as First Lady, nothing as U.S. senator from New York, and whose malfeasance as Secretary of State resulted in the deaths of 4 Americans in Benghazi and 6 billion missing dollars in contract funds.  The only items in her resume that seem to qualify her for the modern presidency are a predilection for socialism and a lack of testicles — the same attributes that carried Barack Obama to victory.  Even such a noted expert on Hillary as Hillary couldn’t conjure up any achievement worthy of mention:

Several weeks ago, MRC-TV’s Dan Joseph visited the Democratic Party’s winter meeting to see if attendees could name a single tangible of Hillary Clinton during her tenure as Secretary of State. They couldn’t. It turns out that Hillary Clinton herself can’t even do that.

“People began to rely on us as setting the values, setting the standards. I just don’t want to lose that because we have a dysfunctional political situation in Washington. And then of course, a lot of particulars, but I am finishing my book so you’ll be able to read all about it.”

Of course, the “values” and “standards” set by the last president named Clinton resulted in impeachment, disbarment, and Monica Lewinsky’s infamously soiled blue dress; but, as a madly ambitious former First Lady might ask, “What difference does it make now?”

Million Dollar Babies

There's One Born Every Minute

“I voted Republican this year; the Democrats left a bad taste in my mouth.” – Monica Lewinsky

“Most guys who don’t like me are either Democrats or Yankee fans.” – Curt Schillling

“A liberal is a man who will give away everything he doesn’t own.” – Frank Dane

“The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.” – Robert A. Heinlein

Modern Democrats — or, more properly, Socialist Jackasses — pretend to be the conscience of the nation; the stalwart defenders of the rights, real and imagined, of everything and everybody except unborn babies and conservative Republicans.   In reality, they’re petty tyrants, dedicated to the “fundamental transformation” of the free enterprise system, and to the proposition that all peasants are created to toil equally in the service of the grand and glorious State which Democrats will, of course, administer.

But for most of the Jackasses, the political is not only personal, it’s profitable:

Of the 10 richest House districts, only two have Republican congressmen. Democrats claim the top six, sprinkled along the East and West coasts. Most are in overwhelmingly Democratic states such as New York and California.

The Reason WhyIn the Senate, we have Dems like John Kerry, who made his money the old fashioned way — he proposed to it — and Dirty Harry Reid, a lifelong politician who garnered millions by staying as far away from honest labor as he could possibly get.  

Dirty HarryThere’s the former community organizer unaccountably promoted to the office of Commander-In-Chief; a piker, perhaps, when compared to his fellow well-to-do Jackasses, but able nonetheless to dispose of millions of taxpayer dollars on a myriad of family vacations that seemingly occur with the regularity of weekends.

Then we have Democrats like Whining Jim Moran of Virginia. Whining Jim, at 174 grand per annum, believes he’s grossly underpaid.  Maybe so.  But since he’s been in office for 23 years, and his only reported asset is a modest money market account, he’s either the only honest man in Congress or its most incompetent thief.  Moran believes that he and his felonious colleagues are members of the board of directors of the “largest economic entity in the world” and should be paid accordingly. But, as Rick Moran (no relation) points out,

“Those bozos can’t even run the congressional gym and Moran has delusions about controlling a $13 trillion economy?”

Democrats may have, as Dave Barry famously remarked, the management skills of celery, but there’s no denying that they possess a keen nose for other people’s cabbage.

Obama’s Cash Cows

How Now

“As democracy is perfected, the office of the President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron.” – H.L. Mencken, the Baltimore Evening Sun, July 26, 1920

“How do you stop cow farts? Frankly the only way to get rid of cow farts is to get rid of cows. It’s them or us.” – Rush Limbaugh

Because screwing up the economy, the military, foreign policy, energy, and education wasn’t enough for ‘em, Barack Obama and his dutiful Democratic dolts have now declared war on agriculture; or, more precisely, on gassy cattle:

The White House has released a Climate Action Plan that includes the targeting of methane emissions from cows and other barnyard animals that threaten the planet through belching and other, er, activities.

TaxingCowFartsIt’s our lust for cheeseburgers that’s dooming the planet through climate change, the Obama administration said in a Climate Action Plan released Friday that seeks to save us all from ruminant livestock.

Having already blamed the Industrial Revolution for what we used to call weather and temperatures that have flat-lined for 15 years, the White House is now targeting American agriculture abundance by slashing methane emissions from cows by 25% by 2020

Flawed science is now used to bludgeon U.S. agriculture, which helps feed a hungry world. It has been a tenet of green theology that cattle contribute to global warming. But the planet hasn’t warmed since the late 1990s. As we’ve noted, this movement that blames human existence for nonexistent plagues on the planet has no scientific basis. It is a myth motivated by a quest for power by those who think they know what’s best for all of us. And now, as the EPA tries to grab the bull (no pun intended) by the, er, horns, we have this udder nonsense. (Apocalypse Cow — Obama EPA To Regulate Bovine Emissions)

The fact that millions of buffalo once roamed the West without blanketing the Plains with clouds of noxious vapor seems to have either eluded the Harvard brainiacs who toil in the service of socialism and Barack Obama, or — more likely — it’s just another in a long line of false-flag issues with which to conduct their never ending assault on private enterprise. And, since there exists in this universe nothing so inconsequential that a Democrat will regard it as un-taxable, they’ll have plenty of fart tax advocates from the Congressional cesspool and the nation’s progressive punditry.

Something stinks, all right.  And it’s not just Bossy.

One Swell Foop

Hope and Change

“The U.S. government has now loaded up the books with so many laws, restrictions, regulations, and mandates, that not only is it impossible for citizens to know them all but it is impossible to live a full day of normal activities without committing at least one or more criminal acts, to the tune of an average of three felonies a day.” – Anthony Martin

“Think of the Democratic Party as what it really is: a criminal organization masquerading as a political party.” – David Kahane

Statistically speaking, if you could remove in one fell swoop all Democratic politicians from the study cited by Anthony Martin, the amount of criminal activity engaged in by the average American on a normal day would probably dip to less than one felony per capita. Now that’s what I call real progressive thinking!

If Life Was Fair …

If Life Was Fair

If Life Was Fair …

Al Gore would be selling boiled peanuts on a chilly roadside in Tennessee … Barack Obama would be a towel presser in a Turkish bath houseHarry Reid would be in the Witness Protection Program … Joe Biden would be in the Witless Protection Program … John Kerry would be an aging gigolo aboard a French cruise ship … Sheila Jackson-Lee would be facing charges stemming from misuse of her EBT card … Bill Clinton would be suffering from a variety of antibiotic resistant STDs … Hillary Clinton would be spending her days scolding the help … Rachel Maddow would be an assistant producer on the Ellen Degeneris Show …

Alas, fairness has nothing to do with it these days.  It’s all about how well you can sell the con.  How else could we have elected a man intent on disarming us while he drives us into the poorhouse?We Give  Or a Congress that lets him get away with it?  The latest bone-headed maneuver by the shakiest gun in the West is his proposal to eliminate our cruise missiles:

It makes sense if you assume that destroying American influence and military dominance is the goal of the ideology that Obama follows. Why should he risk having American military power fall into the hands of a Republican?

Obama refuses to waste money on cruise missiles for the Navy, because he thinks that there are other more important things that the Navy ought to be doing.

Increase supports energy efficiency goals directed by the DoD Sustainability Plan to meet a 37.5% decrease in greenhouse gas emission by FY 2020. Initiatives reduce fossil fuel usage by improving energy efficiency and shifting to renewable energy such as biomass, hydropower, geothermal, wind, and solar.

What would the Navy be without solar panels and windmills?

And what would America be without the buffoonish politicians offered us by the Democrats?

Safer, that’s what.
