The Raven Chides His Blackness?

August 9th, 2013 — 2:49pm

AJAX: Can he not be sociable?

ULYSSES: The raven chides his blackness.

(Troilus and Cressida, Act 2, Scene 3)

Earlier today, in a particularly paradoxical press conference — one in which Barack Obama really got down to brass tax — Obama said of Russian president Putin:

“He’s got that kind of slouch, looking like the bored kid in the back of the classroom.”

This for some reason recalled to me that straight-laced and model student, with the perfect military posture, whom we’ve all come to know so well:

Obama’s Tacit Sanction of Dictatorial Islamists Regimes

July 2nd, 2013 — 2:55pm

Here’s another mind-bender I’d love to hear Obama supporters defend:

Egyptians in the millions [are] out on the street, trying to bring down an Islamist government, increasingly dictatorial, increasingly intolerant, arresting journalists and judges, trying to Islamicize the military and the people are saying no, and what does the president of the United States do? He takes a position of studied neutrality, says he is not supporting either side. And yet, as you point out in the Mubarak revolution, he obviously strongly took the side of the people. He demanded that Mubarak had to go, he was not neutral.

This reminds me of the Green Revolution in Iran in 2009 when the same thing happened. Islamists, dictatorial government, the people out in the street, and they were shouting Obama, Obama, are you with us or against us. And he took a position that was essentially supportive of the regime, and the reason was he wanted to negotiate a nuclear deal which he thought he could do and he didn’t want instability.

That was a shameful episode. But there’s also idea of national interest. Mubarak was pro-American, he was an ally of ours, he helped us in all kinds of ways. Obama worked against him. Morsi represents a movement which is essentially deeply anti-American, and deeply anti-democratic, yet he is neutral on this.This is a shocking position for a president to take. (Charles Krauthammer, Special Report, July 1, 2013)


I would remind readers of something I wrote back in November of 2012:

Mohamed Morsi — first Islamist president in Egypt’s history and a member the Muslim Brotherhood which openly advocates violence against women much like the unspeakable deed we see in this photo — is supported and sanctioned by Barack Obama and his administration.

Barack Obama recently welcomed the election of the first Islamist president in Egypt’s history.

This is a man who during his campaign, a campaign the Obama administration openly supported, said: “The Koran is our Constitution, the prophet is our leader, jihad is our path, and death in the name of allah is our goal.”

This same man, Mohamed Morsi, belongs to an organization called the Muslim Brotherhood, which among other things explicitly pledges in its charter to “infiltrate western society and destroy it from within.”

This same man, to whom Barack Obama sent $450 million taxpayer dollars, also supports forced female circumcision, genital mutilation, and the absolute rejection of women’s rights.

If, therefore, you believe, as I do, in women’s rights, gay rights, and the inalienable rights of all human beings regardless of race, sex, sexual orientation, color, class, or creed, please note that if you backed Barack Obama, you backed a man who backs a man who sanctions this. Because when the Obama administration says, as it recently did: “We look forward to working with President-elect Mohamed Morsi, and the government he forms” — they were not, I assure you, kidding (though in reality it sounds like a very sick joke indeed).

Who Won The 2012 Election?

November 10th, 2012 — 3:09pm

Who won the election? The Government won.

In this case, it was the left-wing government.

Here is a small sampling of the things that Barack Obama supporters backed — please own it — in backing Barack Obama:

Mohamed Morsi — first Islamist president in Egypt’s history and a member the Muslim Brotherhood which openly advocates violence against women much like the unspeakable deed we see in this photo — is supported and sanctioned by Barack Obama and his administration.

The bureaucratic monstrosity known as the Internal Revenue Service — the IRS — will now control the majority of your healthcare decisions, thanks to ObamaCare. The private, one-on-one relationship between you and your doctor will be effectively abolished.

Obama not only extended but expanded the so-called Patriot Act, which among liberals George Bush was properly vilified for, and which supports among other things warrentless wire-taps, invasive surveillance, and spying on American citizens.

Obama then went on to signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which among other things grants him the power to indefinitely detain and arrest any American citizen any time he wants, under his discretion. Obama supporters (unwittingly) called Barack “a psychopath” for these very policies, although when they realized it was in fact Barack who signed these policies, everything became inexplicably okay:




Instead of “cutting the deficit in half,” as he pledged on February 23, 2009, Barack Obama has amassed the greatest debt this country has ever known, and which will turn a once economically great nation on its economic head.

When pot smokers and recreational drug-users voted for Barack Obama because, during his initial campaign for President, he promised “a compassionate drug policy,” they may not have realized that in actuality Obama requested $25.6 billion for drug control by 2013. That is the highest yearly total ever by an American president. More here on this absolutely pointless and profligate life-destroying war-on-drugs:




And let us not, of course, forget the so-called stimulus package which Barack Obama rammed through before anyone had even read the bill — a very partial listing of which expenditures runs something like this:

So congratulations are in order, I suppose, to all Barack Obama supporters who, even though they don’t have any real understanding of political-economic philosophy, got exactly what they wanted — while the rest of us must deal with the utterly despicable and disastrous consequences.

October 9th, 2012 — 4:09pm

Thomas Sowell

In his phony-baloney speech from 2007, Barack Obama explicitly claimed that unlike those in New York City following 9/11 and unlike those in Florida following hurricane Andrew, the federal government wasn’t spending enough on the predominantly black victims of Hurricane Katrina because, as then-Senator Obama put it,”they don’t care about [you] as much.”

But as the economist Thomas Sowell points out in his recent column:

Departing from his prepared remarks, [Obama] mentioned the Stafford Act, which requires communities receiving federal disaster relief to contribute 10 percent as much as the federal government does.

If you want to know what community organizers do, this is it — rub people’s emotions raw to hype their resentments. And this was Barack Obama in his old community organizer role, a role that should have warned those who thought that he was someone who would bring us together, when he was all too well practiced in the arts of polarizing us apart.

Why is the date of this speech important? Because, less than two weeks earlier, on May 24, 2007, the United States Senate had in fact voted 80-14 to waive the Stafford Act requirement for New Orleans, as it had waived that requirement for New York and Florida. More federal money was spent rebuilding New Orleans than was spent in New York after 9/11 and in Florida after hurricane Andrew, combined.

And here’s the real kicker:

Unlike Jeremiah Wright’s church, the U.S. Senate keeps a record of who was there on a given day. The Congressional Record for May 24, 2007 shows Senator Barack Obama present that day and voting on the bill that waived the Stafford Act requirement. Moreover, he was one of just 14 Senators who voted against — repeat, AGAINST — the legislation which included the waiver.

When he gave that demagogic speech, in a feigned accent and style, it was world class chutzpah and a rhetorical triumph. He truly deserves the title Phony in Chief.

Racist Barack Obama And His Phony Baloney Speech

October 3rd, 2012 — 1:19pm

If you can listen to his speech affectation without wincing in embarrassment, you’re a stronger person than I:

Barack (“My-Grandmother-Is-A-Typical-White-Person”) Obama, a garden-variety racist who because he’s black has been given a pass on his devotion to Jeremiah Alvesta Wright.

This Is News?

The Drudge Report has this as its headline right now:

Barack Obama in 1998: “I Actually Believe In Redistribution”

I’d personally file this under the “No Shit” column, but evidently there is still some question about it, so here you are, straight from the dingy source:

Obama On Solyndra: “Not Our Program Per Se”

March 23rd, 2012 — 2:47pm

Amazing what a difference a couple of years can make, isn’t it?

Here, for example, is Barack Obama now talking about Solyndra — the bankrupt solar-panel company that we the taxpayers funded to the tune of billions:

“Understand: [Solyndra] was not our program per se.”

I know what you’re thinking: who the hell uses per se?

But here’s the real point. Barack Obama addressing Solyndra in May of 2010:

So that’s why we’ve placed a big emphasis on clean energy. It’s the right thing to do for our environment, it’s the right thing to do for our national security, but it’s also the right thing to do for our economy.

And we can see the positive impacts right here at Solyndra. Less than a year ago, we were standing on what was an empty lot. But through the Recovery Act, this company received a loan to expand its operations. This new factory is the result of those loans.

The Recovery Act, in case you’ve forgotten, is the failed Stimuls Plan (so-called) that none other than Barack Obama jammed through before anyone knew what was in it.

Barack Obama’s attempt here to distance himself from Solyndra is what I call prevarication per se.

Obama: Folks Faint All The Time At My Events

March 7th, 2012 — 1:46pm

Everyone, including cult-leader Barack Obama, knows that frequent fainting are common when you’re a brainless follower.

Here’s what Barack said about it just today while speaking in North Carolina:

“Looks like somebody might’ve fainted up here, have we got . . . Somebody . . . EMS . . . Somebody . . Don’t worry about it: Folks do this all the time in my meetings,” Obama said. “You always got to eat before you stand for a long time–that’s a little tip. They’ll be OK, just make sure–give them a little room.




Uh-huh. It’s not always easy being cheesy, eh, Barack?

Hat tip Daniel Halper.

Barack Obama Openly Admits His Antipathy Toward The Free Market

December 8th, 2011 — 2:29pm

In so doing, Barack Obama also discloses for us again his arrant economic-political illiteracy.

Straight from the horse’s mouth — and it doesn’t get any plainer than this:




One would be wise to note here that there’s never in world history been a system of total unregulated laissez-faire capitalism, but the societies that have come the closest have prospered the most.

In fact, there’s an indisputable correlation between freedom and flourishing, which is why Hong Kong, a barren rock in the middle of the ocean, with virtually no resources at all, grew to such astronomical proportions in so short a time during the 20th century, and it’s also why America became the greatest civilization in all of human history in less than 200 years.

The Cult Of Obama Crumbles But …

September 16th, 2011 — 2:48pm

Cult Leader Barack Obama Reads Teleprompter To His Zombies

But Obama and his clownish administration are still feverishly trying to recruit members — this time with a brand new website called AttackWatch.com, designed, according to national field director Jeremy Bird (of Obama for America) to “get the facts and Fight the smears…. [T]he site offers new resources to fight back, including policy issue pages that fact check statements by Obama’s Republican opponents with links to evidence to back them up.”

Sounds like a smart plan to me.

If, then, you’re aware of any anti-Obama rhetoric going on out there, I urge you to report it to the Obama thought police:

AttackWatch.com

Or if you prefer, you can tweet about it. In fact, last I heard, the tweets were coming in at a rate of about one every two seconds.

Here are a handful of them:

From DrFreeLance: “I saw a werewolf drinkin a pina colada at Trader Vic’s, and his hair was perfect.”

From chuckdevore (Republican state legislator in California): “Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean a big majority of us isn’t out to get you…”

From EddieRobbins: “My neighbor removed his Obama bumper sticker. I think he’s a racist.”

From DickMeyers: “Bless me #AttackWatch for I have sinned. I have muttered naughty words about our Dear Leader 9 times & have doubted his divinity a few times”

From joaniekensil: “Ate refried beans & chips for breakfast which is sort of racist foodist – Carbon emissions to follow.”

From PoliticalGravity: “Saw a kid with a lemonade stand and she didn’t have a permit.”

From thorninaz: “Hey #attackwatch, I saw 6 ATM’s in an alley, killing a Job. It looked like a hate crime!”

And from the always excellent IowaHawkBlog: “#AttackWatch have you cried “uncle” yet? Because we can keep this up all f***in’ day.”

Most of these occurred within a two-minute time span.

Meanwhile, in related news, Michelle Obama is working hard to legislate what food our children are allowed to eat, because, as everyone knows, “you’re not free if you’re not healthy.” Darden Restaurants Inc., which was lucky enough to receive one of the coveted ObamaCare waivers (why you’d need or want a waiver for a piece of legislation as brilliant as Obama’s healthcare catastrophe is another subject for another time), has happily jumped onboard Michelle Obama’s nutritional campaign.

Solyndra Debacle Highlights Obama’s Folly And Exposes The Green-Energy Racket

September 5th, 2011 — 3:20am

I’ve said it many times before: if something is economically tenable, it never needs to be subsidized, because the market will adopt it naturally. If something needs to be subsidized, it’s not economically tenable and should not be subsidized. Just recently, we’ve had the misfortune of witnessing yet again the reason that this is so.

Solar energy will one day be tenable, but the technology (which incidentally the free market best fosters) is still many years out. Thus the latest in a long line of infuriatingly wasteful “green energy” debacles.

Debra Saunders, of the left-wing San Francisco Chronicle, explains:

Last year, President Barack Obama came to the Bay Area to tout “green jobs” at an event at solar panel manufacturer Solyndra’s Fremont plant. Quoth the president: “The true engine of economic growth will always be companies like Solyndra.”

On Wednesday, Solyndra announced it was shuttering its remaining Fremont factory, laying off 1,100 workers and filing for bankruptcy. It was a sorry day for the Bay Area.

I remember the day Obama came, May 26, 2010, vividly. Then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger came to greet the president and wave to the hard hats. Venture capitalists preened. Just to show how brainy and farsighted the solar crowd is, Obama reminded the audience that his energy secretary, Steven Chu, is a Nobel Prize-winning physicist.

Rube that I am, I didn’t understand what Obamaland was thinking. Solyndra had not turned a profit since it was founded in 2005. The plant in which Obama stood was bankrolled with a $535 million federal loan guarantee. Two months before, PricewaterhouseCoopers questioned Solyndra’s “ability to continue as a going concern.”

If the president wants to send a positive message on the U.S. economy, I wondered, then couldn’t his people have found a California company that doesn’t rely on a federal loan and actually makes money?

Bad advance work, I figured.

A month later, Solyndra canceled a planned $300 million public offering. In November, Solyndra closed its older plant and cut its workforce. Today Solyndra’s lights are out.

Now I am wondering: Isn’t there some graybeard in the White House who — knowing that the president won’t look good if the tax-funded solar plant folds — does some digging to make sure the president’s choice of venue will not come back to haunt him?

Or could it be that Team Obama is composed of like-minded green true believers who insulate themselves from other points of view — much like the way, critics contended, George W. Bush was surrounded with yes men?

Consider: The administration continues to cling to its belief that green jobs are the jobs of the future, despite evidence to the contrary. A July study by The Brookings Institution found that green jobs account for 2 percent of American jobs — and Brookings used a generous definition, which included public-transit and waste-management jobs as green. Even still, Brookings found that green jobs grew at a slower rate (3.4 percent annually) than the national economy (4.2 percent) between 2003 and 2010.

Some Democrats have clued in. Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., recently observed, “Of course we want to be part of the new innovation and green jobs. But you know, the green jobs have been about a lot of talk, and not a lot has been happening on that.”

But Team Obama won’t give up the dream.

Then again, the administration has friends in the green-titan community. Enter Oklahoma oil magnate George Kaiser, who raised at least $50,000 for the 2008 Obama campaign and is a frequent visitor to the White House. Kaiser was a top Solyndra investor.

In September 2009, Solyndra became the first recipient of an administration energy loan program that was part of the president’s stimulus package. A 2010 Government Accountability Office audit of the program found that five applicants, including Solyndra, bypassed required steps for funding. A Department of Energy spokesperson told The Washington Post that the GAO got it wrong.

The Solyndra decision baffled some industry experts, who questioned the viability of the company’s solar technology. “To think they could compete on any basis, that took a very big leap of faith,” solar analyst Ramesh Misra later told the Post.

The House Energy and Commerce Committee has been investigating the Solyndra deal — with little cooperation from the administration. Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., who chairs the investigative subcommittee, noted in a statement, “In an apparent rush to push stimulus dollars out the door, the Obama administration wasted $535 million in taxpayer funds in guaranteeing a loan to a firm that has proven to be unviable in the global market.”

Thursday, White House press secretary Jay Carney defended the loan program with its goal to “invest in cutting-edge technologies.”

The president, his Nobel Prize-winning energy secretary and Vice President Joe Biden (via satellite) participated in events that promoted Solyndra’s brand. In addition, Solyndra got to spend a half-billion in taxpayer dollars — and still the solar company couldn’t succeed.

Stearns and the committee’s chairman, Fred Upton, issued a joint statement that rang true. They said, “We smelled a rat from the onset.”
