As American As … Apple Pie??

FlashbackSetting aside the legal criteria required to hold the office of the President, it doesn’t much matter whether a man was born in Oahu or Lower Slobbovia.  The essence of being American means subscribing to a set of principles on governorship as codified in the U.S. Constitution.  By that measure — which is the only one that really counts — Barack Obama (and by extension, the modern Democratic Party)  is as anti-American as it gets.

Snakes In The White House

Obama Gets (Is)Rael)Compared to Barack Obama, Benedict Arnold was a rank amateur…

“President Obama has strengthened Israel’s defense in concrete and unprecedented ways …” — White House blog

“They have to fly over our airspace in Iraq. Are we just going to sit there and watch?” — Zbigniew Brzezinski, Former national security advisor to Jimmy Carter

The Bethlehem-based news agency Ma’an has cited a Kuwaiti newspaper report Saturday, that US President Barack Obama thwarted an Israeli military attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities in 2014 by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran. Following Obama’s threat, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was reportedly forced to abort the planned Iran attack. According to Al-Jarida, the Netanyahu government took the decision to strike Iran some time in 2014 soon after Israel had discovered the United States and Iran had been involved in secret talks over Iran’s nuclear program and were about to sign an agreement in that regard behind Israel’s back. The report claimed that an unnamed Israeli minister who has good ties with the US administration revealed the attack plan to Secretary of State John Kerry, and that Obama then threatened to shoot down the Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.

Grand Old Cavemen

Cavemen3_cartoon

“I told you guys the Senate GOP would screw us over on DHS funding, but even I had no idea Mitch McConnell would capitulate so easily. I assumed he’d do a major song and dance first, but instead he just went all Ned Beatty in Deliverance the moment Barack Obama looked at him funny.” Eunuch Mitch McConnell Squeals Like a Pig

“This is a total victory for the Obama position,” said a GOP senator unhappy with McConnell’s plan

“Counterfeiters use the reputation of a trademark, which brand manufacturers have built up on the basis of the quality of their products, to fool consumers about the true origin and quality of the goods.” — Wikipedia

Last November, Americans voted out the turkeys. The noxious policies of Obama and the Socialists Democrats were given the old heave-ho, like holiday giblets gone gamy. The Grand Old Party was handed both houses of Congress in the kind of landslide victory seen about as often as Halley’s Comet.  Rejoicing was heard throughout the land — at least, that part of the land which still subscribed to old fashioned notions like the rule of law. Little did we realize that we’d voted in counterfeits, cheap knock-offs that looked good in the display case, but fell apart once they got in the rain.

CavemanTwo months in, and the GOP has retreated more often than the Royal Italian Army.  If these are the mutts we’re looking to for salvation, it’s time to head for the shelters.  Republicans under the direction of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker John Boehner have surrendered to the Democrats on every issue, from immigration to net neutrality.  They’ve rubber-stamped Obama’s new attorney-general nominee, Eric Holder Light.  If we don’t need a new army, we sure as hell need some new generals to run the old one.

After going to the Senate floor and slamming Obama’s executive amnesty in November, McConnell hoisted the white flag of surrender … Obama attacked the time-honored American tradition of separation of powers with his executive amnesty and for that reason alone, House Speaker John Boehner and Mitch McConnell should’ve gone to the mat and done everything necessary in their power to overturn it. However, the GOP leadership and “establishment” don’t really want to change how Washington works. There’s something wrong with a party that can be frightened with just a dirty look into not shutting what is one of the most useless departments of the Federal government and at the same time, claims to be for Constitutional and limited government. This is why the American people and conservatives are angry at them and don’t trust them. (After The Latest Mitch McConnell Surrender, Why Should Conservatives Even Bother Supporting Republicans)

People love to hear themselves talk, particularly if they have nothing to say. In fact, the less they have to say, the more often they tend to say it. This is true of most people, but most especially those incorrigible swindlers that a negligent electorate unaccountably installs into the seats of power.  Anyone announcing a desire to run for office should be immediately disqualified from doing so.  The 114th United States Congress proves the point.

Rudi And The Red

Rudi and the Red

“Ex-NYC mayor Rudolph Giuliani’s statement that Barack Obama was influenced by communists in his youth and doesn’t love his country isn’t nearly as fascinating as the reaction to it.” Selwyn Duke

“In Obama [the media] see themselves. What he wants to carry out is what they want and they are going to do what they can to make sure these last two years he gets to do just that, the consequences be damned.  So whether it is going after Rudy Giuliani or going after a Congressional staffer for a slight against the Obama daughters, the media is going to be out to defend Obama at all costs. That’s what the palace guard does … ‘They fight for his successes. He cannot fail.'” Jay Caruso

“Was it that what Giuliani said was demonstrably false? Was it that Barack Obama is supposed to be considered innocent until proven guilty? Anyone who simply looks at the factual evidence as to whether Obama loves America, or does not, will find remarkably little to suggest love and a large amount of evidence, over a long period of years, showing his constant close association with people fiercely hostile to this country.” Thomas Sowell

Does Barack Obama love his country?  I suppose the answer to that depends on which country is actually his.  One thing’s for sure: our national media will never bother to find out.  These ersatz scriveners of ours are as malodorous as an outdoor privy in July.  Instead of determining the veracity of Giuliani’s charges, our domestic dung beetles rush to attack his character, his motives, his very sanity.  This is what passes for mainstream journalism in 21st century America. If you’re looking for investigative reporting (unless you’re investigating a conservative), you’d better look online — and you’d better do it fast.  Because Obama and the Democrats are about to shut down their critics.

Critics of President Obama’s “net neutrality” plan call it ObamaCare for the Internet. That’s unfair to ObamaCare. Both ObamaCare and “Obamanet” submit huge industries to complex regulations. Their supporters say the new rules had to be passed before anyone could read them. But at least ObamaCare claimed it would solve long-standing problems. Obamanet promises to fix an Internet that isn’t broken.(From Internet to Obamanet)

The real problem isn’t with what Giuliani said; it’s that he didn’t say enough.

Moving Further From The Light

BamiesWilliam Shakespeare wrote these words for Macbeth, but insert the president’s name for the first word, “Life,” and you could not have a better description of America’s Nero:
“[Obama‘s] but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.”
President Obama, America’s Nero

“At the risk of being melodramatic, it must nonetheless be said: We are in a war for civilization itself, and Barack Obama is not on the right side.” — Quin Hillyer

bama2“It appears that by a three to one margin presidential scholars are now convinced that Barack Obama has been the worst president ever. For as far left as most in academia are, this is quite a shock, really.” Most Presidential Experts Agree: Obama is Worst President In History

“I tried new positions
I learned his friends names
I made myself sit through football games
Oh, Been jilted
Been jilted again” — The Puppini Sisters

That old Lucky Strike advertising slogan well describes America as a whole as we enter Year Six of Obamunist mis-rule: It’s Toasted.  There are no do-overs in presidential elections, so despite the fact that millions of Obama voters are belatedly realizing that they made two horrible mistakes, they (and we, and the rest of the world) are gonna have to live with the long-term ramifications of the worst decisions the American (or any) electorate ever made.

His Gal Val

My Pal Val

For six years, America has been ruled by a small clique who adroitly bypassed Constitutional checks and balances, while also rendering the mainstream press impotent. No official seems to hold more power over Barack Obama than Ms. Jarrett–someone who never has been fully vetted by investigative journalists and by America’s national security apparatus. Never in America’s history has power been concentrated in the hands of two people less qualified or prepared to lead the free world How Secure Is Valerie Jarrett’s Position in the Obama Administration?

Imagine where we are today: Barack Obama, Frank Marshall Davis’s political godson, and Valerie Jarrett, daughter-in-law to Vernon Jarrett and granddaughter of Robert Taylor—men with links to pro-Stalinism—are the two dominant figures in the White House… Paul Kengor

When I asked a longtime source who left the Obama White House years ago for his impressions of Jarrett, he confessed that he was too fearful to speak with me, even off the record… The Obama Whisperer

Valerie Jarrett, the éminence grise in the mis-administration of Barack Obama, distaff H.R. Haldeman to Barry’s unchecked version of Tricky Dick Nixon, former Chicago slumlord and left-wing dabbler in the real-life game of Risk, is probably the person least likely to be thrown under Obama’s bus, my facetious cartoon and the caterwauling of Democrats scalded by the 2014 election results to the contrary.  Like our mainstream news media, I won’t bother to delve into Val’s history; you can read all about it here.  Suffice it to say that she was nurtured in the same Mid-west network of racists and radicals that harbors such leftist luminaries as Billy Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, and Jeremiah Wright.

Jarrett is deeply concerned with racial issues. After the tape recordings of Jeremiah Wright’s racist, anti-American diatribes threatened to sink Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, it was Jarrett who encouraged Obama to give his “race speech” at Constitution Hall. African-American administration staffers have said that without Jarrett’s patronage, “their opinions and the often-legitimate concerns voiced by black leaders like [Al] Sharpton would have been thoroughly disregarded …”

In early 2009 Jarrett lobbied President Obama to create the office of Chief Diversity Officer within the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), a position filled soon thereafter by Mark Lloyd, an Alinskyite and a former senior fellow at the Center for American Progress. Jarrett also helped recruit Obama’s regulatory czar, Cass Sunstein, who supports the Fairness Doctrine and has argued that Americans should “celebrate tax day.”  Without Jarrett’s patronage, the self-identified communist revolutionary Van Jones would not have gotten his appointment as the Obama administration’s green jobs czar in March 2009. A White House official told Politico that Jones “did not go through the traditional vetting process.” Instead, Jarrett interviewed Jones, a signal that she pushed for his appointment.

In his book Leading From Behind, author Richard Miniter reveals that Jarrett, prior to the May 2011 U.S. killing of Osama bin Laden, repeatedly urged President Obama not to kill the al Qaeda leader, prompting Obama to cancel the mission on three separate occasions—in January, February, and March of 2011.

In 2010-11 Jarrett promoted the California-based solar-power company Solyndra, where one of her wealthiest Chicago connections, billionaire George Kaiser—a leading Obama bundler—held a 35% share in the company.

With bona fides like those, the bus hasn’t been built that’s big enough to run down this woman.  At least, not as long as Obama’s driving it.

Net “Neutrality”: Turning The Internet Into MSNBC

Dems For Net Neutrality“Obama gave his direction to the FCC in back in early November and lo and behold, the FCC majority has put together President Obama’s plan for Internet regulation … Obama’s plan marks a monumental shift toward government control of the Internet. It gives the FCC the power to micromanage virtually every aspect of how the Internet works Obama’s plan to regulate the Internet is an unlawful power grab.” — FCC commissioner Ajit Pai

“The Fairness Doctrine was a policy of the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC), introduced in 1949, that required the holders of broadcast licenses to both present controversial issues of public importance and to do so in a manner that was, in the Commission’s view, honest, equitable and balanced.” — Wikipedia

“Think of the press as a great keyboard
on which the government can play.”
― Joseph Goebbels, Reich Minister of Propaganda

Make no mistake: Barack Obama, not the FCC, is the one pulling the strings here.  So-called “net neutrality,” as envisioned by Barry and the Socialists … uh, Democrats, is no more than a thinly disguised attempt to abrogate free speech rights as guaranteed by the 1st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

“…the movement behind net neutrality—from President Barack Obama to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, and reportedly to New York Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand—is coming from the left for political reasons. As liberal dominance of the media has waned under the shadow of FOX News, conservative talk radio and websites such as the Drudge Report, some in the Democratic Party have been looking for creative ways to maintain, or regain, the “mainstream media’s” liberal clout. Net neutrality is one way to attain their goal of dominating the media.”Forbes

Obama supporters, useful idiots who would gleefully support the stoning of infants and puppy dogs if they thought it would help Dear Leader in his campaign against capitalism,  are all in favor of so-called “net neutrality,” which they see as a large thumb in the eye of the telecom giants instead of what it really is: a sucker kick to the cojones of American freedom.

The “Random” Thought Of Barack Obama

Obama in 1941

“For the last six years, Obama has acted as if the biggest threat to American security in that part of the world is the Israeli government…” — Charles Krauthammer

“Obama followed up his recent probing and informative interviews with YouTube celebrities by granting an interview to liberal blog Vox, during which he claimed the terror attack on a Paris kosher deli was “random.” It isn’t clear what the president means by calling the attacks “random.” The deli shooter, Amedy Coulibaly, had previously pledged support for ISIS, and his wife even recently filmed a propaganda video for the group calling for more terror attacks on France. Furthermore, the choice of target was far from random. Porte de Vincennes was a kosher deli servicing the local Jewish community. All four of Coulibaly’s murdered hostages were French JewsYahoo Finance

“Obama has sparked some widespread fury over his recent comments to Vox about the Jewish individuals who were brutally killed by terrorists in Paris — specifically, he labeled them “a bunch of folks” who were randomly shot … Obama went on, seeming to place the blame for terrorist attacks at the feet of the United States.” — Washington Times

“Amedy Coulibaly said openly and proudly that he was targeting Jews. No one disputes this, except for Barack Obama … And we know he’s perfectly comfortable denouncing crimes committed in “in the name of Christ” no matter how ancient they may be. But crimes in the name of Allah must not be named as such — or at all.”Jonah Goldberg

____________

Had the Bataan Death March been orchestrated by Muslims instead of the Imperial Japanese Army, Barack Obama would have labeled it a random act of hiking.
