Sanctions

“Support for Israel is a minority opinion in the Democratic Party.” – William McGurn

“For years now it has been clear that Barack Obama is unusually hostile to the state of Israel and unusually sympathetic to or admiring of anti-Semites such as Rashid Khalidi.” – Quin Hillyer

Congress, at least that part of it not controlled by America’s domestic enemies the Democrats, is taking steps to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization.

The Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2014—sponsored by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R., Minn.)—seeks to slap U.S. sanctions on the organization’s political center in Egypt as well as scores of affiliates operating across America and Europe…

Sanctions would, of course, have dire consequences for that branch of the Brotherhood known as the Obama administration, an FTO if ever there was one: the head loony’s vacation fund might be frozen.

The Best Friend Hamas Ever Had

Pals

“Qatar is Hamas’s biggest and most important financier, a role it plays as well for ISIS, al Nusra, the Muslim Brotherhood and various jihadist groups in Libya.” – Caroline Glick

“When it comes to American relations with our Israeli allies and our Islamic-supremacist enemies, you can always rely on Obama to do the wrong thing.” – Andrew C. McCarthy

“I’ve got two years left in this presidency, I want to get a whole bunch of stuff done.” – Barack Obama

Obama ain’t fooling anyone; at least, not anyone who doesn’t want to be fooled — which is usually the eternally gullible American liberal, always ready to be fleeced by any glib left-wing illusionist whose only real talent is making other people’s coins and freedoms disappear.

But what the Obama administration, that cabal of pro-Muslim socialist conspirators unaccountably placed in power by an apparently suicidal American electorate, would really like to see vanish, other than world capitalism, is the State of Israel. Which is why they’ve spent the last six years scheming to depose any and all secular Middle-Eastern tyrants (as worthy of deposition as such self-aggrandizing thugs may have been) and funneling billions of dollars in cold cash and hot weaponry to equally if not more tyrannical and thuggish Islamists.

There’s a reason why America’s Mohammedans approve of Obama by 72%: they know a brother when they see one.

Champion Of The 1.6 Percenters

One Track Mind

“I think that gay marriage should be between a man and a woman.” – Arnold Schwarzenegger

Homofascism – “a way of organizing a society in which homosexualists impose their agenda with which no one is allowed to disagree or have any appeal to the contrary without being subjected to severe consequences of ridicule, slander, libel, fines, public demonstrations, distortions, denial of free speech rights, loss of employment, and having the word ‘hate’ attached to you in some form.”

According to a new survey by the Center For Disease Control, only 1.6% of Americans identify themselves as homosexual.  Which begs the question, why does the President of the United States spend his presumably valuable time pandering to a tiny segment of the public while generally ignoring the customs of the 98.4% of us who like our eggs, so to speak, sunny-side up?

Since we’re talking percentages, here’s another one to ponder: 71% of the people who voted for Obama now regret it.  The other 29% have been dead since the turn of the century.

FLOTUS Expands The War On Cellulite

Beware The Money Interests

“Feeding trash cans is not what’s best for kids.” – Leah Schmidt, President, School Nutrition Association

“In response to the low calorie school lunch plan put in place by the First Lady, a video of children singing “We Are Hungry” has surfaced on YouTube.” – Medical News Today

The modern Democratic Party is a party of ideas — most of which have been recycled from places like Cuba or China or the old Soviet Union. A Democratic domestic policy always contains at least three components: a ban on what they don’t like (i.e. guns and tobacco), a subsidy for what they do (abortion), and a hefty new tax (Obamacare) that forces the rest of us to pay for it all.

Mrs. Barack Obama, whose contribution to her husband’s destructive March To The C consists of fighting everyone’s fat but her own, has thus far focused on America’s defenseless school children in her campaign against triglycerides and teenage cellulite. That may be about to change. With her totalitarian school lunch program under fire from both what the Mooch infers is a monied permutation of Hillary Clinton’s “vast right-wing conspiracy” and the hapless kiddies being force-fed arugula and bean sprouts (not to exceed 850 calories per diem), Mrs. Big Red One is turning her sights on another captive dependency: welfare recipients.  As the PJ Tatler explains:

You’ve got to be kidding me. FLOTUS wants to turn grocery stores into little food police states.

While the feds’ plan deals mostly with the 47 million Americans who participate in the government’s food stamp program, it would indirectly affect all consumers. According to FreeBeacon.com, the federal busybodies want to provide food-stamp shoppers with “incentives” for making healthy food choices – such as discounts or free movie tickets – and even talking shopping carts that will notify them when they’ve selected enough healthy items.

The high-tech carts – which would cost every grocery store about $30,000 to provide – would be physically divided and color coded to help consumers select approved food items. It would also “have a system installed so that when the shopping cart reaches its healthy ‘threshold’ it would congratulate the customer” … In case that’s not creepy enough, the feds want grocery store employees to serve as government “ambassadors” who can “redirect” food stampers toward healthy items by explaining the various incentive programs and nutritional information.Drop It

Those of us who have experienced check-out lines crowded with porcine citizens whose shopping carts brim with angus beef and potato chips, whose fists are filled with enough food stamps to pay for an entire cow, those of us who have experienced such an ungodly sight might relish, if you’ll pardon the expression, a government intervention, but talking gurneys are not quite what we had in mind.

While the feds could easily ensure healthier purchases for food stamp participants by clamping down on which products are available to them, the government busybodies want consumers to think they’re making these choices all by themselves. They’re not going to do that. That would be racist or something.

Since the feds have thus far done nothing to prevent welfare recipients from using their EBT cards in “casinos, strip clubs, liquor stores, massage parlors, medical marijuana dispensaries, bars and even cruise ships” (See Free ObamaDollars: The EBT Card for Cigarettes and Alcohol), usages the prohibition of which liberals consider “discriminatory,” it’s doubtful that a wheeled supermarket harpie dispensing health tips at $30 grand a pop is going to find much success.

What’s The Matter With Libs Today?

Lizzie Warren Took An AxeElizabeth Warren, the latest left-wing Yankee egghead turned Democratic politician, is so wowing the yeasty-headed crowds out in Prog-Land that they want her to run for President in 2016 — as if the last six years of Marxist mischief-making wasn’t enough. Alas, Lizzie’s is a constituency that won’t be happy until we’re all standing in government breadlines in the rain waiting for our meager rations of moldy socialist cheese:

In a speech today to the Nutroots Nation, held befittingly in dystopic liberal paradise of downtown Detroit, non-candidate  and American Indian princess Elizabeth Warren brought down the house. The theme of her speech were the economic issues that Democrats should run on in 2016. (Fauxcahontas and the eleven commandments of progressivism)

Lizzie, of course, is another product of Harvard, the Patrice Lumumba University of America, in particular of Harvard Law, that august department which trains our country’s supposed best and brightest to play fast and loose with the facts.  But, as Robert Tracinski points out,

There’s nobody as dumb as a smart person. That’s because, when they decide to adopt a dumb idea, they don’t just bumble their way into it. They build whole systems of other dumb ideas to support that one central dumb idea, and because they’re smart, they build complex and sophisticated systems of dumbness. They write dumb plays and dumb novels and dumb poems. They create dumb theories about psychology and economics. They originate entire dumb new philosophies. So yes, Elizabeth Warren is a good example of taking a dumb idea to extremes. But she ain’t got nothin’ on guys like Karl Marx and Immanuel Kant. The issue here isn’t native intelligence; it’s irrationality. The Warrens and Marxes and Kants follow stupid ideas to their absurd extremes because they are committed to maintaining a belief in a fixed idea regardless of evidence.(Elizabeth Warren’s Acquired Economic Stupidity)

This is a woman who poses as the champion of the working class, yet gladly pocketed a cool $350 grand per annum from the ol’ alma mater for teaching one lousy class. That windfall was made possible because blue-eyed, blonde-haired Lizzie claimed to be a Cherokee Indian (related, perhaps, to old Chief Standing Turkey?) in order to reap the unfair advantages conferred by academia’s discriminatory “politically correct” policies:

The whitest minority in the history of academia — liberal hero Elizabeth Warren — was described in glowing multicultural terms in a 1997 article in the Fordham Law Review. The article calls her Harvard Law School’s “first woman of color.”

With this, we have even more evidence that Elizabeth Warren, for years, presented herself as a Native American. It was a lie, plain and simple. In a professional environment where laying claim to minority status generates tremendous professional currency — influencing hiring and promotion decisions and the granting of tenure — she perpetuated this lie and almost certainly profited from it. Even her thin claim to being 1/32nd Cherokee has now been utterly discredited. The Boston Globe acknowledged on Tuesday that no evidence exists to back up even her meager claim of being 1/32nd Native American.

The main problem with Lizzie’s inventive history was that she got caught inventing it, proving again that there’s nobody as dumb as a “smart” person, except, maybe, the people that vote for them (via Twitchy):

One witness to Warren’s address found it particularly inspiring and gave her speech high Marx:

Warren TweeterWell how nice.

Eric Holder’s Civil Wrongs

not-when-we-do-it

“There’s a certain level of vehemence, it seems to me, that’s directed at me [and] directed at the president. You know, people talking about taking their country back … There’s a certain racial component to this for some people.” – Eric Holder

“Mr. Holder, the one true racist in this dialogue is you. You see everything through the prism of race. You are the racist. You are using racism to cover up the inadequacy of the performance of the president of the United States, and the absolute dereliction of duty in your office. You, sir, are the racist.” – Brad Thor

“He’s a race man.” — Charles Ogletree, longtime friend of Eric Holder

There hasn’t been a slave or a slave owner in these United States for a century and a half, but to listen to yammering leftists — unfortunately including the Attorney General of the United States and his boss, the President — you’d think emancipation occurred only last Monday. Using spurious accusations of racism to excuse their failures and to leverage their mephitic agenda is a time-honored tactic of the unscrupulous Left, a delivery they’ll continue to throw until their guilt-addled opponents prove they can hit it.

the-red-and-the-blackIn Obama’s Enforcer, authors John Fund and Hans von Spakovsky describe the transformation of the U.S. Department of Justice into a stronghold of progressive legal activism and provide in-depth portraits of the radical lawyers in the Attorney General’s inner circle. Holder and his agency protect the President’s flank on numerous fronts, all the while actively advancing a hidden political agenda. Under the current regime, a new politically correct laxity has been injected into domestic security issues, an unprecedented expansion of politically correct actions have been initiated by the Civil Rights Division, widespread attacks have been launched on election integrity efforts, taxpayer funds have been funneled to political allies through collusive settlements, and much more. (Obama’s Enforcer: Eric Holder’s Justice Department)

Fly Obama’s Friendly Skies With No I.D. — If You’re An Illegal Alien

The Domestic EnemyTSA Allowing Illegals to Fly Without Verifiable ID, Says Border Patrol Union

“The aliens who are getting released on their own recognizance are being allowed to board and travel commercial airliners by simply showing their Notice to Appear forms,” NBPC’s Local 2455 Spokesman, Hector Garza, told Breitbart Texas. “This is not the CBP [Customs and Border Protection] or another federal agency renting or leasing an aircraft, these are the same planes that the American public uses for domestic travel. We do not know who these people are, we often have to solely rely on who they say they are, where they say they came from, and the history they say they have. We know nothing about most of them, ICE releases them into the American public, and now they are boarding aircraft at will with a simple paper document that anyone can easily alter or reproduce themselves.”

And who ordered this piece of illegal lunacy?  As if we didn’t already know …

Border Patrol Warns MS-13 Using Nogales Processing Center as Recruitment Hub:

“The National Border Patrol Council believes there to be serious security issues at the Nogales Processing Center. Agents’ hands are tied due to the policies governing the care and lodging of juveniles and this has allowed gang recruitment and activity to flourish amongst those being detained,” vice president of the National Border Patrol Council Shawn Moran tells Townhall.

Obama Hustles America

Sinking AmericaDoes Anybody Care? With Country in Chaos, Obama Shoots Pool, But Turns Down Doobie

America’s weathered quite a few emergencies in its 238 years.  And in none of them has a sitting president, Democrat or Republican, been as derelict in his duties as the present inhabitant of the Oval Office.  That dwindling portion of the citizenry which still retains a modicum of common sense can argue until the cows come home as to whether Barack Obama is intentionally committed to the destruction of the nation or is the most incompetent individual ever elected to high office.  It no longer matters.  Dedicated enemy or hopeless bungler, the results are what they are.  A few of the more recent:

  • Obama Advertised In JANUARY For ‘Escorts’ To ‘Resettle’ 65k Illegal ‘Children’ – MONTHS Before Border Crisis Began: Call it the “smoking gun”: proof that the Obama Administration knew, and likely colluded with activists and foreign governments, to engineer a massive wave of migrant woman, children and teens (nearly all boys) across the Rio Grande.
  • 600% Increase in Illegal Alien Children Arriving Since Obama’s 2012 Executive Order: Obama’s own 2012 Executive Order has skyrocketed the number of illegal alien children pouring into the U.S. from Central America. While the Obama people deny that it did, the numbers tell a different story. In this year alone, the number has already tripled, and by the end of the year, six times as many illegal children will have come here as before Obama’s Executive Order.
  • Navy to Congress: We can’t guarantee a safe nuclear fleet: Fighting back at repeated budget cuts to its nuclear power budget requests, two of the Navy’s top leaders warned Congress on Monday that the cuts can’t go on. “This approach is no longer sustainable,” wrote Adm. Jon Greenert, chief of naval operations, and Adm. John Richardson, commander of Naval Reactors (NR), the entity responsible for all aspects of the Navy’s nuclear power program.
  • How Obama Lost Iraq and the War on Terror: One likely reason that Obama refused aid to his Iraqi ally is that he has other, much closer allies, who are funding the terrorist group invading Iraq.
  • The Economy Tanked Last Quarter And It’s Everybody’s Fault But Obama’s: The U.S. economy shrank at an annual rate of 2.9 percent during the first three months of 2014, government bean counters announced this morning. That matches the worst non-recession contraction of the U.S. economy in over 40 years … Sadly, Obamacare could no longer pretend to be the economy’s savior. Spinmeisters found their villain, though: winter. As everyone knows, winter is a freak, unpredictable event. And if there’s anything that makes a cold winter even colder, it’s global warming.

So, while the southern U.S. leaks like a rusted tin roof in a hurricane, the Big Red One nonchalantly guzzles beer and plays pocket-ball … er … pocket pool in a Denver saloon.  He won’t visit the border, he says, because he’s “not interested in photo-ops.”  Right.

“Obama saying he’s not interested in photo-ops is like Michael Moore saying he doesn’t want seconds.” (Weasel Zippers)

A Country Without A President

No common ground

“To think just Monday Democrats were whining over spending $3.3 million to investigate Obama’s IRS scandal. Now Obama actually has the balls to ask for $3.8 billion to throw at his influx of migrant Democrats … If the GOP is dumb enough to give him money they need to take it out of his vacation and party budget.” – JWF

Trusting a dyed-in-the-red-wool radical like Barack Obama to secure the border is dumber than expecting a hardcore junkie to secure a medicine cabinet full of vicodin and codeine. Obama and his motley crew of anti-American cockroaches won’t be satisfied until the southern boundary of the United States is located somewhere around St. Paul.
