Finally vetting our racist president?

Read here at BigGovernment.com

I have to wonder how long the MSM will continue to ignore and refuse to finally vet this guy.


Read her lips – “all this for a flag?”

And his smirky response isn’t much better.

I honestly can’t see how this can be understood any other way. She’s mocking those who are folding the flag, as if this is the first time she’s ever seen this protocol. Well, maybe it is.


Forget this day at our peril

God will punish us if we ever forget the innocent people in these planes and buildings.

Two years ago, TheOne signed into law a remaking of this day into a National Day of Service.  3000 people died and we are supposed to recognize this as a day of service?  Is that some kind of sick joke?

His plan was to “erase this day from our psyche” and remake it into something that makes no sense to Americans who need to grieve, who need to remember.  It was just one of the many despicable things, but probably the most despicable, that this man has done since he took over the WH.

Now, today we have Obama’s cheerleader in chief, Paul Krugman in the NYT say that 9/11 has become “an occassion for [national] shame.”

What happened after 9/11 — and I think even people on the right know this, whether they admit it or not — was deeply shameful. T[h]e atrocity should have been a unifying event, but instead it became a wedge issue. Fake heroes like Bernie Kerik, Rudy Giuliani, and, yes, George W. Bush raced to cash in on the horror. And then the attack was used to justify an unrelated war the neocons wanted to fight, for all the wrong reasons.

Shame on him. Shame on his president.

This day will forever be a day of mourning for Americans, no matter what they try to do or what they say about it.

We will never forget.

********

It would be good to read or reread the American Spectator column by Matthew Vadum in 2009.  I linked to it above. This is a walk down memory lane from only 2 years ago and it was shades of things to come from this WH, as well.

More ‘do-gooders-doin’-stupid’ in Britain

After the riots and looting we’ve seen in London of late, I find this pretty astounding.  The story was featured on Cam & Company tonight.

There are going to be 125,000 school kids getting free tickets to go to the 2012 London Olympics but they will not be allowed to watch the shooting events. Not even shooting practice for you, kiddies.

Danny Bryan, founder of Communities Against Gun and Knife Crime said: “I agree with Boris [the mayor of London]. It is good kids should enjoy the Games but there’s no way we should glorify guns.”

So with that argument, are they glorifying the javelin, the shot or the discus? Any of those can be lethal weapons and all are Olympic events. For cryin’ out loud, you could beat someone over the head with a hurdle or a block, for that matter.

What do they think they are protecting these kids from? It’s okay to see Londoners break windows, steal flat screen tv’s and throw rocks at the unarmed police but not okay to watch people shoot at targets. And it goes without saying, but I’ll say it anyway – these kids have seen much worse on tv, in video games and in movies. They have seen much worse “glorifying guns” than they can ever absorb at an Olympic shooting event.

After the looting and riots we have just seen in London, how do these ‘do-gooders-doin’-stupid’ justify this – – seriously?

You know, I love the Brits but sometimes they say and do things that just make no sense.


Quote of the day – Quin Hillyer

The truth is, it’s a sad day in America when Joe Biden’s blarney would be a marked improvement in Oval Office leadership.

How to get 10 million votes in two easy steps

Obama has just assured the democrats (and why we still call them democrats, is beyond me) a whole new voting bloc:

“Having failed in the legislative process, the Obama administration has simply decided to usurp Congress’s constitutional authority and implement an amnesty program for millions of illegal aliens,” FAIR President Dan Stein said. “This step by the White House amounts to a complete abrogation of the president’s duty to enforce the laws of the land and a huge breach of the public trust. … In essence, the administration has declared that U.S. immigration is now virtually unlimited to anyone willing to try to enter — and only those who commit violent felonies after arrival are subject to enforcement.”

I won’t call them democrats anymore. They are now the American Marxist Party (Formerly Known as Democrats.)
His next move will be to issue them voting rights and mark my words, he will do so before the next election.

This isn’t Camelot or the court of the Sun King

Reading The American Spectator today, Norman Podhoertz in the Wall Street Journal and Nile Gardiner of the UK Telegraph, reminded me of Evan Thomas (grandson of that loser but perennial socialist presidential candidate, Norman Thomas) declaring to Chris “tingly leg” Matthews in 2009 that “Obama is sorta god.”

(As an aside, Chris really should have this tingly leg thing checked out. It could be neuropathy caused by undiagnosed diabetes or something and maybe shove himself away from those jelly doughnuts, just in case it is. A weekly workout in the MSNBC gym wouldn’t hurt him, either. His god-dess Michelle will be the first to tell him, and the rest of us, that obesity is the number 1 cause of diabetes.)

But I digress and that’s a whole other blog.

Those were the days, weren’t they? Obama on the cover of every “news” magazine in the grocery store checkout line with the celestial halo around him, head upturned and nose in the air; the frown of determination and decisiveness across his face.

Under the spell of the messiah on Rolling Stone

Yes, Evan, he really was above us – on a ledge of your making. And every journalist in the nation, nay world, was all too quick and willing to acquiesce to their new found god Obama. His was the soaring rhetoric that was going to heal the world:

In the American Spectator, George Neumayr relates that “Obama loomed even larger than Lincoln. He was a “Lightworker,” as San Francisco Chronicle columnist Mark Morford​ put it in 2008, “that rare kind of attuned being who has the ability to lead us not merely to new foreign policies or health care plans or whatnot, but who can actually help usher in a new way of being on the planet, of relating and connecting and engaging with this bizarre earthly experiment.” [A bizarre earthly experiment? Does anyone really talk like this? Maybe if you were in a 70's consciousness raising group, or something...]

Now that the Lightworker has fallen to earth and the glorious new way of being on the planet turns out to be a lowered credit rating, some of his prominent supporters have fallen silent or resentful. Heady Lincoln comparisons have given way to Carter comparisons, sotto voce: “We are watching him turn into Jimmy Carter right before our eyes,” an anonymous Democratic Senator said to New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd​.

Yep, well it’s a long, hard fall when you’re up “above the world” looking down.  It’s an even harder fall when you start to believe all the mythology about yourself.

The new Emperial president.

There is a disturbing let them eat cake mentality projected by the Obama White House … No US presidency in modern times has been more elitist or out of touch than the present one, which exudes the kind of condescending left-wing snobbery that is normally the preserve of an ivory tower common room. President Obama looks increasingly aloof and out of sync with the American people, three quarters of whom now believe the country is heading down the wrong track – including a staggering 58 percent of Democrats, according to Rasmussen. Nile Gardiner/UK Telegraph

Norman Podhoretz says that his “own answer to the question, “What Happened to Obama?” is that nothing happened to him. He is still the same anti-American leftist he was before becoming our president, and it is this rather than inexperience or incompetence or weakness or stupidity that accounts for the richly deserved failure both at home and abroad of the policies stemming from that reprehensible cast of mind.”
