And The Survey Says

I just completed an unofficial survey. I have now watched three news segments where they go out to ask black voters why they are voting for Biden, or why they are not voting for Trump?

This is the way media campaigns, by canvassing the black dislike of Trump. They are desperate to present a narrative. What it really shows is another thing.

It reveals some stunning results. A few said they had no reason. Someone said because of the COVID crisis. One remarked that her vote was 80% against Trump and 20% for Biden.

But here is a spoiler alert. Out of all the selected participants, no one could name a good reason why they supported Joe Biden. No one mentioned looks either.

Asked if they saw or felt any enthusiasm for Biden, most said no. One exception did say she was excited about Biden, and that he is actively campaigning, though didn’t explain why.

When asked if they were aware or thought Democrats have taken their votes for granted in the past, most agreed. Yep, that’s how it is. One said that Dems (or Repubs) need the black vote to win and that they expect the black voters to turn out in elections.

Sure some of them disliked Donald Trump. One said that he has not done anything al all for the black community. The same woman said people tell her he is not his/her president. And she asks, did you vote last time? Because if you didn’t vote, then you voted for him.

Okay, but why vote for Biden was not clear. When did Joe become the safe vote or the undecided vote? Why is he a default vote? What makes him the best choice?

I’m sorry, I have to throw down the stupid card here. People cannot formulate a coherent reason why they are voting for Biden. So I have to ask why they are even voting then?

You know it is not just this election and it crosses racial or age lines, too. Many people don’t have substantive reasons why they vote the way they do. It is not just blacks.

I know, I know, someone will accuse me of vote suppression for questioning why they vote? But I could conclude that voter suppression goes the opposite way; their vote cancels out my and other people’s votes. It makes you wonder if they really take it that seriously?

Haunting Biden

As soon as Joe Biden announced his bid in the primary for president, it presented a two-fold problem. On one side it seemed like a gift, while on the other it could be a referendum on Obama/Biden for eight years.

So though it seemed a great opportunity to personalize Joe, the prosecution of the case against Obama was fraught with setbacks. Well, that is partly because there is just so much to convict in those years, but the track record for doing that has not been good at all. Not to mention the lack of will to follow through among Republicans about doing it.

It would be a hard slog and there is only so much time in an election campaign to make the entire case — and since the case has not been pursued anywhere else. Especially in a year like this one with a pandemic interrupting the campaigning process. It would be a daunting task and take some skill to weave through all the grievances, corruption and abuses.

Yet it could be done. And all you would have had to say is Biden was there for eight years. That is his record. It is pretty self-evident. Case closed. Grand jury anyone?

However, you know the cozy coalition of media and desperate Democrats would resist an O=B referendum just as they are in resistance to this presidency now.

We know the issues from 2009 to 20017. Then they left with a big bang still echoing throughout Deep State to this day. It revealed all we knew about the duo of destruction. They were allies in evil, who never had accountability for any of it. It didn’t seem fair.

Even though Joe may be very much alive, he is still a very haunting presence.

What’s Wrong With Biden

What is wrong with Biden? No, I mean beyond the physical aspects already discussed. We are going into uncharted waters.

You might see him as the Trojan Horse. Biden is the perfect frontman for Marxism because he doesn’t know or understand it. Clearly that is one of the reasons Obama picked him. Yes, he was always progressive but he didn’t get where it was all going – the destination.

So the debate did not go particularly well? What do you expect from a slithering serpent of the Swamp like Joe, who has no recognition of what it all means? Joe is Bolshevik Biden without Bernie’s self-awareness. Or what the Soviets called a useful idiot.

Then hide and seek Biden left on his campaign train ride, which was an obvious metaphor for his campaign. Get onboard the fast track, destination unknown. Enjoy the ride; watch and feel the momentum carry us to wonderland where there is no turning back.

Get the riding with Biden theme?

The beauty of it is, if we all follow, we will find ourselves somewhere we can’t recognize not knowing just how we got there, because we will be so busy dealing with the caustic effects.

But by then the train ride will be over. The conductor already took our tickets and no one will be accountable. The same train that took us there will not be able to return us. There is no ticket back. Bernie, the pied-piper of socialism, will be laughing from wherever he is.

Biden was too dumb to know, he was too convinced and caught up in the means. Joe’s riding Amtrack in the sleeper car. We can’t afford to be so dumb. Joe’s handlers say “empathy is his super power.” But people don’t want sympathy or empathy, they want actions not emotions.

Coup In The Works

Okay kiddies, let the grownups in the room speak about serious matters civilly now. Or at least take their best crack at it. But know they are serious about what they are doing.

The Coming Coup?

Michael Anton

Essay — 09.04.2020

Democrats are laying the groundwork for revolution right in front of our eyes.

As if 2020 were not insane enough already, we now have Democrats and their ruling class masters openly talking about staging a coup. You might have missed it, what with the riots, lockdowns and other daily mayhem we’re forced to endure in this, the most wretched year of my lifetime. But it’s happening.

It started with the military brass quietly indicating that the troops should not follow a presidential order. They were bolstered by many former generals—including President Trump’s own first Secretary of Defense—who stated openly what the brass would only hint at. Then, as nationwide riots really got rolling in early June, the sitting Secretary of Defense himself all but publicly told the president not to invoke the Insurrection Act. His implicit message was: “Mr. President, don’t tell us to do that, because we won’t, and you know what happens after that.”

All this enthused Joe Biden, who threw subtlety to the winds. The former United States Senator (for 26 years) and Vice President (for eight) has not once, not twice, but thrice confidently asserted that the military will “escort [Trump] from the White House with great dispatch” should the president refuse to leave. Another former Vice President, Al Gore, publicly agreed.

One might dismiss such comments as the ravings of a dementia patient and a has-been who never got over his own electoral loss. But before you do, consider also this. Over the summer a story was deliberately leaked to the press of a meeting at which 100 Democratic grandees, anti-Trump former Republicans, and other ruling class apparatchiks got together (on George Soros’s dime) to “game out” various outcomes of the 2020 election. One such outcome was a clear Trump win. In that eventuality, former Bill Clinton White House Chief of Staff John Podesta, playing Biden, refused to concede, pressured states that Trump won to send Democrats to the formal Electoral College vote, and trusted that the military would take care of the rest.

The leaked report from the exercise darkly concluded that “technocratic solutions, courts, and reliance on elites observing norms are not the answer here,” promising that what would follow the November election would be “a street fight, not a legal battle.”

Two more data points (among several that could be provided). Over the summer, two former Army officers, both prominent in the Democrat-aligned “national security” think tank world, wrote an open letter to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs in which they urged him to deploy the 82nd Airborne Division to drag President Trump from the Oval Office at precisely 12:01 PM, January 20, 2021.

About a month later, Hillary Clinton declared publicly that Joe Biden should not concede the election “under any circumstances.” The old English major in me interprets the word “any” to mean “no,” “none,” “nada,” “niente,” “zero,” “zilch” “bupkis”…you get the idea.

This doesn’t sound like the rhetoric of a political party confident it will win an upcoming election. …./ (must read)

As that old saying goes, if it happens in politics, you can bet it was planned. And it will be like nothing we’ve ever seen before. Let’s call it Coup On Main Street.

So while the Democrats and media openly broadcast their outrage over their oetty grievances with Trump, this is what they have brewing among their ruling class elites.

Dems Want A Doormat, Not A President

Democrats don’t want to elect a president; they want to elect a doormat. There is a little bit of a misconception that Democrats want a strong executive for a president.

But no they don’t. They want a suit in the office and a doormat to the White House. They want someone who the mob can demand what they want to, and have him deliver on their every whim. He or she can then rule with an iron fist on behalf of the mob.

The other misconception is Democrats want someone empathetic. They don’t want someone to feel their pain; they want someone to heal their every pain. They don’t care whether the president feels for them as long as he/she performs on the mob’s command.

Besides, “feeling your pain” is a bit condescending, isn’t it? What is that worth?

Democrats don’t want democracy either. They want mob rule. That is as long as they control the mob and it operates in their favor.

Other than that, a president can issue a lofty, Obamaesque speech occasionally to make them feel good. But what he does for them is much more important. And they are a demanding bunch of intolerant brats, with a wish list longer than War And Peace.

Joe Biden delivered an address to Democrats adding a quip about his father saying:

“My dad used to say, “Joey, I don’t expect the government to solve my problems—but I sure expect them to understand it.””

Understand it? That’s about the last thing it seemed capable of under Obama-Biden.
Now let me loosely revise that into a simple theorem of my own.

I don’t expect government to solve my problems….. But I don’t want them to get in my way and keep me down there, or cause me more problems.

I do expect government is incapable of feeling my pains when I have them. But I just don’t want it to cause the pain. And I certainly don’t need it to extort my problems.

But when government does cause me problems and pain, I have a First Amendment right that says I can spell out that problem.

So Joey is trying to create a code to live and govern by. Well, he is a little late. We see the kind of code he and Obama operated by over the years. His family is enriched by his “public service.” Public office is a self-serving position, to him, not a selfless service.

Do you think his dad always told him that? Or did his father tell him that other people’s pains and losses are just a political opportunity for him and other elected pols to extort? That a crisis is an excellent opportunity to abuse political power.

Where did those values come from, Joey? And what oath of office mentions those?

Don’t you always love getting lectured about “values” from Democrats when they prove they really have none? They do their moral preening but then take advantage of every problem or crisis, even when creating it themselves, for pure political gain. Then rub your face in it. This skill is what they are really good at – turning your pain into their gain.

China, You’re No Good

Here are the lyrics to my new song. I hope you like it.

China, you’re no good
you’re no good
you’re no good
you’re no good
China, you’re no good.

Hong Kong is gone
But won’t be forgotten

What is the single word that can end Joe Biden’s campaign,
and cancel his political career? China.

But how can we save ourselves from China, though,
If we cannot save ourselves from our own?

China is just no damn good.

Biden’s Bolshevik Plans

Here’s a short review of Democrats’ plans, I have a direct analogy for anyone listening.

Suppose I want to build a huge project. Now I would not hire a union(s) to design the building. Of course I’ll hire a designer or an architect for that. Likewise, the unions would not have an architect run their unions.

But this roll reversal is exactly what Biden and union organizers have up their sleeves. The iron workers don’t design the bridges. Steel workers don’t design cars. The teachers’ unions do not design our public schools or write the curriculum. Let’s be real about it.

First of all, unions are not accountable to the public, nor are they elected to public office. And they do not want to be. Stop pretending.

What kind of hair-brained idiots are these people?

What kind of economy, country are they trying to create?

Biden The Official Scapegoat

So it is all starting to look like a plan, like everything else the dirty Dems do. Try to run Joe Biden for a diversion. But there is a lot of people supporting him.

Killing Biden — to salvage Obama

By Charles Hurt – The Washington Times – Tuesday, October 15, 2019

ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The biggest cover-ups are usually the ones right in front of us — as they say, “hiding in plain sight.”

This whole impeachment-in-search-of-a-high-crime charade going on in the House of Representatives today has nothing to do with actually removing President Trump from office.

If that is all Democrats wanted to do, then they would just field a candidate against him whom voters find slightly less detestable than they found Hillary Clinton. That way, when they boot President Trump from office, they will have voters on their side. And Vice President Mike Pence won’t be left sitting in the Oval Office.

Anyway, they are presently running a hotly partisan and absurdly secret witch hunt that will only pants themselves in the U.S. Senate. (Spoiler Alert: Republicans control the U.S. Senate, where the Democrats’ hotly partisan and absurdly secret witch hunt will be dead on arrival.)

So, what is this all about? It is a cover-up, plain and simple.

Whom, you ask, are they trying to cover for? Their next political savior who can take down Mr. Trump?

Certainly not former Vice President Joseph R. Biden. If anything, Mr. Biden has been set ablaze atop the altar as a sacrifice in this massive international cover-up by Democrats.

The sleaze and dishonesty and self-dealing that oozes from the Biden name these days will leave a permanent stain on his nearly half-century political career.

“I don’t know. I don’t know,” said Hunter “The Leech” Biden, when asked whether he could have gotten a job making $50,000 a month from a Ukrainian gas company if his last name hadn’t been “Biden” at a time when his daddy was vice president of the United States.

“Probably not, in retrospect,” The Leech allowed. “But that’s — you know — I don’t think that there’s been a lot of things that would have happened in my life if my last name wasn’t Biden.”

Game. Set. Match.

That is all anybody needs to know about the Biden family and whether they were open for bribery in Ukraine or China or anywhere else in the world.

The key to understanding House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s coup conspiracy against the president has nothing to do with Mr. Trump’s phone call with the president of Ukraine. Instead, it has everything to do with all the fake Russia nonsense they have been barking about for the past three years — but are suddenly very quiet about today.

When was the last time you heard any major Democratic persecutor in Congress utter the word “Russia”?

As Sherlock Holmes would say, it is the dog that DIDN’T bark. Which brings us to the “whom” that Democrats are sacrificing all in an effort to protect: former President Barack Obama.

Currently, there are a handful of very, very serious probes by nonpartisan prosecutors bound by rules of fairness and due process looking into the origins of the Obama administration’s spying operation on the campaign of a political opponent at the height of the 2016 election season.

This is and always has been the most gravely serious matter in the whole fake Russia “collusion” saga. People go to jail for doing things like this in America. And it’s not just former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper or ex-CIA Director John Brennan and dirty FBI agents like Peter Strzok who face devastating consequences if it can be proved they used their massive government powers in an effort to destroy a political opponent.

It could reach deep into the White House. It could reach the top.

This is why Mrs. Pelosi has dropped Russia and collusion and stopped talking about the Mueller report or all the fantasies laid out in the “dirty dossier” that Democrats paid foreign agents to dig up on Mr. Trump from Russian sources.

It is also why Mrs. Pelosi refuses to run the current impeachment “inquiry” with even a hint of due process or fairness. If the minority — or the executive branch — were afforded the fairness that attended past impeachments, Republicans would gain subpoena powers to call witnesses.

Do you think Republicans might like to question Mr. Brennan or Mr. Clapper under oath about who authorized espionage against political opponents during the height of a presidential campaign?

Of course they would. But Mrs. Pelosi will never let them get that close to Mr. Obama.

So … Ukraine! Joe Biden be damned.

Well, if it was not the plan it is looking like that’s the goal now. Sacrifice Joe, but will it keep us from getting to Obama? And why don’t we have Brennan’s and Clapper’s emails?

Not to mention there is a whole lot of dragging this out going on. It’s already three years post Obama and they’re getting around to it now? At this point we can only pray this will all be exposed, sometime. But of course the damage it and they did is already done.

Democrat Dream Candidates

Identity politics has had a head-on collision with reality. It’s too early to know the full outcome yet. It seems the investigation is still underway. Results will take time.

Democrats have long played the identity politics game and 2016 was a perfect case. But a strange twist is happening they probably had not anticipated. And it might just affect the 2020 election and not in a positive way.

You know the rules and the way it works. Democrats only see identity when they pander to voters. Elections are the whole purpose, The group rules, individuals are just fuel.

So it has all worked in their political strategy the way they wanted it to. But the campaign is already heating up to decide which person. (at least I think they are all people) They have two old guys in the top slots for starters. That is Bernie an Biden leading the pack.

But both these guys are old and white, right? Well that doesn’t play well. There is no identity gimmick to that. The voices of dissent are already rising from their mob. They say it does not represent a preferred identity. They see room for one of the other identities.

S0 it got me thinking. Democrats also have that other identity game going. Actually, it represents more of a problem. They pandered to LGBTQs, gays or any of the others.

However, the trans community has also been playing identity politics. They developed a new thing I will call sexual choice. According to theory a person has the right to claim how he/she identifies, as a personal preference, which must be respected by everyone. Example: Bob decides he identifies as a woman and his new name is now Judy. It is all biology irrelevant so no matter what he claims is his/her accepted identity.

And how one identifies decides everything. No questions.

Now you have these two old white guys — not to forget Warren and Gillibrand. What could two old white guys need to do to spice up their identities? Maybe they could try the new identifies game. I mean it is all about preference, right?

Well, maybe Bernie could identify as a young male rapper? How about a young biracial male rapper? He does have a hand gesture going for him. Why not? What is preventing Joe from identifying as a Latino? Whatever they are comfortable with goes. (for as long as they are) And no one should be able to question their choice of identity, right? Joe might go with the female version to align it with restroom preference.

And that is the way this whole race could go now, using the left’s preference rules. Actually, under that standard they could even change identities again if they wanted. It is whatever works for them. Who could argue? Maybe the first gender-neutral candidate?

See how opportunistic this all can be? Why can we see a problem there but Democrat dumbos cannot, or will not admit to it anyway? That is where we are headed.

Looks like liberals have taken the 60’s sexual, counterculture revolution and kicked it up a few notches. Now everyone must play according to their preferences. It’s identity limbo.

Obama theory, just brainstorming

Since it is August (Obastid’s birthday — if he has one) and it is time for theory, opinion, even conspiracy theory, I have an interesting one I’ve given some thought.

Now the possibility of this theory, nothing more, may be based on the results one wants to achieve. That is usually the way it works with Dems anyway. Outcome and agenda rule. The theory goes like this, suppose Obama had enough of the political sparing and his trust and approval have taken a hit. Plus he’s on the brink of nasty politics or investigations on multiple levels. So he could decide: (far-fetched maybe… but what if)

Before it gets any worse, why don’t I just resign while there is a little time left on the clock? That would fix them. I could step aside and preempt all their criticism or plans to attack me, especially in an election year. Do I give them that opportunity to run against me? Who do they think I am, George Bush?

I could avoid repercussions for these problems by stepping down. That would put Biden in office for the remainder. He could field these issues. Then he could stage his run from here and consolidate that support seemlessly. It would get people off my back in the immediate and my approvals would start turning around. They would see me more as the victim I am and forget these controversial side issues. Joe could challenge Hillary, who has been a thorn in my side from the beginning.

You know, Hillary would just have to suck it up. Too bad, sucks to be her. I already did plenty for Hellary. I don’t owe her anything. Joe would make a better president for this apparatus I built than she would. Her credibility is shot through anyhow. She didn’t do me any favors. She should have to work for the nomination the way I did. I hope she is not expecting me to campaign for her.

If I stepped down now it sure would put a kink in Hillary’s plans. People would love Joe and he can handle the press. Hillary would be irrelevant. She can deal with all those scandals she has going on. I can fade off and there is nothing they can do to me. I might be the most popular president in modern history in a year. By the time those Republicans are staging their run against me and Democrats, I’ll be in Hawaii polishing my legacy. I’ve already done most of what I planned and the rest is already in motion. Even Biden can handle finishing that. If I tell him he’ll be all for it. I’ll still have that loyalty and an open door.

The only scandals the press would be able to focus on then is Hillary’s. Wow was that a mistake, that ungrateful beotch. I’ll still be the real voice for progressives and she will look like a pawn to me. Biden and Elizabeth Warren could work. It’s all upside for me and downside for Hillary. Maybe I ought to do that and not let her or her people know? That would mess her up.

Well, it is just an idea and I’m not sure Barry hasn’t considered it or given it some thought. He might see it as a way to screw the people again. Do you think he would ever attempt something like that? A bit strange, but hey, these are radicals anyway. Just theorizing.

Obama meets Obama …calls him unpatriotic

Sort of. I love it when a plan comes together.

Flashback: “pay as you go” candidate Obama:

Dems are in a big tizzy over Giuliani’s statement that Obama doesn’t love America.

“I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America,” Giuliani is quoted as saying. “He doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country.”

Obama slammed George Bush as unpatriotic for spending 4 trillion dollars. Now is there any doubt about Obama’s huge appetite for spending? (Or buying votes as some call it)

And he said this the day before the 4h of July – probably unaware of what the 4th is.

Now Giuliani says Obama doesn’t love America and you’d think the world came to a screeching halt.Debbie Schultz is outraged. But he qualified his remarks by saying

“He’s a patriot, I’m sure. What I’m saying is that, in his rhetoric, I very rarely hear him say the things that I used to hear Ronald Reagan say, the things I used to hear Bill Clinton say, about how much he loves America. I do hear him criticize America much more often than other American presidents.”

In 2009, after election, VP Joe lectured on the wisdom of spending money.

Patriotism is now big-spending and fashionable. Love for America takes a backseat to that spending …and political ideology… every time.

Evidently, times have really changed since 2008. If Biden was right, then thanks to Obama this country will never go bankrupt. Giuliani might have hit more than one nerve in the Obama camp.Finally, someone says publicly what Americans are thinking.

Star-dazed Democrats, polling their u_sual

According to latest Quinnipiac poll, the Democrats primary looked like this.

2b. (If Democrat or Democratic Leaner) If the Democratic primary for President were being held today, and the candidates were: Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, Andrew Cuomo, Elizabeth Warren, Martin O’Malley, Howard Dean and Brian Schweitzer, for whom would you vote?
DEMOCRATS/DEMOCRATIC LEANERS
Tot– Men –Wom

Selling Clergy to Sell Gun Control

Biden Wants Pastors, Rabbis and Nuns to Tell Their Flocks: Enacting More Gun Control Is the Moral Thing to Do

May. 7, 2013 2:21pm Billy Hallowell — The Blaze

WASHINGTON (TheBlaze/AP) — Vice President Joe Biden has a commandment for pastors, rabbis and nuns: He wants them to tell their flocks that enacting gun control is the moral thing to do. But another vote may have to wait until Congress wraps up work on an immigration overhaul.

Biden met for two-and-a-half hours Monday with more than a dozen leaders from various faith communities – Christian, Jewish, Muslim and Sikh, to name a few. Both Biden and the faith leaders encouraged each other not to give up on what has been an arduous and thus far fruitless effort by Biden and President Barack Obama to pass new gun laws in the wake of December’s schoolhouse shooting in Connecticut.

Around a large, circular table in a conference room on the White House grounds, Biden waxed optimistic about prospects for passing a bill, according to four participants who spoke to The Associated Press after the meeting. Biden’s chief of staff, Bruce Reed, joined the group, as did a handful of Obama aides who work on faith-based outreach. The meeting closed with a meditation and a prayer for action.

Meanwhile, Biden back on the campaign trail

Biden says response to tragedies ‘incredible’

DETROIT (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden on Saturday said the strength of those devastated by the Boston Marathon bombing, Texas plant explosion and Connecticut school shooting is remarkable and proof that some good can come from carnage and pain.

“It showed the incredible resilience, heroism, commitment and love of the people who responded to these tragedies,” Biden said at a major fundraiser for Democrats in Michigan, which could play a big role in the 2016 presidential election.

Biden said winning back the Republican-controlled House in 2014 is crucial and that the American people are on the side of expanded background checks for gun purchases.

In May, Biden will keynote a Democratic fundraising dinner in South Carolina, which traditionally holds one of the first primaries of the season.

Turning the events into campaign material… now that’s incredible!

When talking points collide

We were told the economy was on the mend. Things are looking up. Come on people, just ignore reality. Kerry was telling the press corp at the convention that they should be reporting on the great, ever-improving economy. You know, all that good going on. Biden chimed in with his prospering economic forecast. (as only Joe can do)

Now with sequestration, all the talk shifts to the damage of this self-created sequestration. It will send shivers down the spine of the economy and threatens to put us in recession, so says the administration. And sending shivers through the editorial pages and Paul Krugman columns.

I take it the “recovery summer” mantra is now off the talking points. Better clear Barry’s teleprompter. It will be doom and gloom forecasts for the foreseeable future. That is until something is done to stop all the cutting. Then it will be “clear sailing” again from the administration. Of course the problem is the talk does not match reality — it never does with Obama.

So they will talk about how this sequestration, as unnecessary as it all is, which only slows the growth of spending, is now threatening to take the economy into a nosedive. And they will point out the signs all around.

Reality check: we the people were never in the rose-colored recovery. We’ve been in the pain camp for some time, ever since the pretender took office. But that matters not to Obama’s perpetual campaign. It was supposed to be sunshine and rainbows — until this dastardly sequestration came along.

So Kerry’s memorable advice to the media to start reporting on this great economy busting out at the seams, and Biden’s “summer of recovery” talk, shift to hurricane warnings. “Hunker down, take cover, plan your escape routes… Be vigilant for the effects of the Sequestration monster lurking in every corner.”

This probably causes some frustration on editorial boards everywhere. They have to scramble to cover the looming sequestration effects. Surging economy, eat your heart out. (it was nice knowing you)

We the people, the sane ones, never fell for that putrid economic talk. We were reminded every time we went to the store or got that last ten dollars in gas to hold us over for a few days.  All the economists will be on notice to start pointing out the damaging economic effects everywhere. Maybe there is some poetic justice here to show that roaring Obama economy is not firing on …. any cylinders, and never was. It was a big fat lie.

It only  shows how deceiving all their mantra was before, and how hypocritical they are. Hey, but at least they don’t have to talk about Solyndragate, the XL pipeline, Fast and Furious, or Benghazigate. And remember the Obama motto, “never let a crisis go to waste” – especially if you create one.

Obama’s par for the course

Obama hits the links after the SOTUS. “I deserve a second term” so he   can go to Palm Springs to play golf, and Michelle can dispatch to Aspen. Oh, let’s see what she wears?  I can’t wait.

However, what can wait is that budget. Who needs a stinking budget? But the gun-grabbing gun control cannot happen soon enough to suit his fancy.

So when he returns, it will be campaign time again that “we can’t wait!”
Let the gun control resume.

 

While Obama Vacations in Palm Springs, Michelle Obama to Vacation in Aspen

One couple, two taxpayer funded vactions. More from White House Dossier:

First Lady Michelle Obama plans to vacation in Aspen, Colorado this Presidents’ Day weekend, separately from her husband, who will land this evening in West Palm Beach for his own down time with the boys.

According to Aspen newspapers, both Michelle and Vice President Biden are expected on the slopes. The White House has not yet announced the trip, and it’s not clear when she will be leaving, though she will presumably go today.

Incidentally, in Jan. 2012, CNN called Obama’s obsession with golf “par for the course for presidents”, digging up records about past presidents’ penchant for golf. But it was more like par for the course for CNN

So this term, expect to see a lot more golf and a lot more defense of Obama’s par.
But expect no “hole in one” on the budget.

Obama Fiscal Cliff

The biggest issue of our time is the debt and our budget problems. Now imagine a president comes out and says I will not negotiate?

In the campaign, Obama gave us lectures about what he would do to work with others and compromise. It was just talk though. Now he says he will not negotiate over the debt ceiling. In fact, what he wanted was unilateral power to raise the debt ceiling by himself. Screw what the people say or what congress wants. He wanted to usurp the power unto himself.

President Not is  laying out his campaign once again.

My name is Barack Obama, and I’m chief of spendaholics. There is nothing anyone can do to stop me. I will not listen; I will not negotiate; I will not stop spending as I want to.

Huff Po reports

While Obama insisted he was “very open to compromise” in future talks, he emphasized he would not negotiate with Congress over the debt limit.

I will not have another debate with this Congress over the debt ceiling,” Obama said.

 

(Newser Jan 2, 2013 ) – It seems lawmakers on both sides of the aisle can agree on one thing: They don’t deserve a raise. The Senate’s fiscal cliff bill contains a single sentence provision that will stop Congress from getting a scheduled cost-of-living salary bump, Roll Call reports.

President Obama had issued an executive order raising pay for all federal employees, including a $900-a-year bump for Congress, but lawmakers in both houses had pledged to vote it down, the Hill reports, with some wanting to prevent raises for the rest of Washington as well.

“At a time when our country is facing record debt and trillion dollar deficits, the last thing Washington should do is reward itself with a pay increase,” Rob Portman said in a New Year’s Eve statement. Michele Bachmann took it a step further and drafted a bill preventing congressional raises in 2014.

 

As Krauthammer said Jan 4:

Sure, he’ll pretend to care about deficits, especially while running for re-election. But now that he’s past the post, he’s free to be himself – a committed big-government social Democrat.

As he showed in his two speeches this week. After perfunctory nods to debt and spending reduction, he waxed enthusiastic about continued “investments” – i.e. spending – on education, research, roads and bridges, green energy, etc.

Big spending is back in vogue — with no apologies He’s probably busy making out his Christmas wish-list for next year.

Harry Reid: liar extraordinaire

Hary Reid – prince of darkness award

Prince Harry has been running his mouth about how the house won’t act on the looming crisis, as if he was standing there waiting for any response from them. He claimed he was just trying to find solutions to the cliff crisis. Then, as Sunday rolled around, he said he did not have a counter offer to Republicans.

He revealed the truth, he has no interest in negotiating. (negotiation is a foreign word to Prince Harry) They want what they want and that’s it. He accused Republicans of having a dictatorship in the House. He then reverted to the second lieutenant of darkness, Gaffes Biden. But Harry will stand willing to hold the vote for the Overlord of Darkness, Barack Hussein Obama, on his phony non-plan at the last minute – just as planned. The dark forces unite in their kingdom of evil.

As we knew, more tax money — or “revenue” as they like to call it — only means more new spending to them. And no matter how much more they get, they will spend even more. Just what most people feared. Nothing changes in the District of Corruption. All Reid’s pre-game talk was only that, demagoguery.

He made no move to do a budget since Obama was elected, and he hasn’t changed his arrogantly stubborn mind since. He holds the entire government and political process hostage to his dictatorship. He’s nothing but a tool of the evil I was talking about. Sure, there are other greater and lesser actors in this evil. But Reid earned his ‘evil button’.

Everyone should be sick to death of this liar and propagandist. But somewhere he still has allies, the like-minded Marxists. Why should one man have the ability to sabotage our entire Congress? Yet to Harry, his biggest problem is eliminating dissent and any opposition.

Harry is Satan’s point man in the Capitol.

Guns front and center… Fast and Furious, fuhgeddaboudit

Texas YNN
Obama returns to the podium in the briefing room again. But he should have issued some strict rules and guidelines. It set off a firestorm of reaction following his speech, when off topic questions invaded the press conference.

It is a little hard to swallow Obama’s passion on the issue as ‘gun-runner in chief’. He thwarted, stonewalled, and blocked inquiries into Fast and Furious using executive privilege, now his priority is gun control. This was his third speech about it — gun control. Contradiction never occurred to him, nor does hypocrisy.

Then gun control advocates were frustrated when questions after were about fiscal cliff negotiations. Reporters were even called on to justify their fiscal cliff questions in view of the presidents remarks limited to gun and violence issues. They had to explain the rationale for their questions about the looming debacle.

But when did he make a national speech or commission about violence and murders, many of them children, in Chicago? He didn’t. Oh the president is the only one that can create a task force and then say “this is not a commission”. Does it matter what you call it? He promises it will not stretch out for months and inaction, you know, like Fast and Furious.

Just because the nation is headed for a fiscal cliff in a few weeks, with stalled negotiations, does not mean anyone should be asking about that subject. Nah. Piers Morgan led a charge of gun control advocates against the ofenders. That prompted statements today from reporters to justify their questions.

Gun running to Mexico can’t even be questioned or discussed. And there is no media firestorm about it. That was only “a manufactured scandal”. Obama has no time for such nonsense. He suggests the gun control should not be political and dragged out while they made Fast and Furious partisan ordeal, dragging the Dems for how many months now? They deny public outcry about it. They politicized the Newtown massacre from day one.

But read Obama’s lips, this is no commission on guns….even if it promisses to be a commission on guns. And let’s put that partisan hack, Baretta Biden, in charge of it.
