Obama is channeling Nixon now.

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

At first our Dear Leader was emulating the worst President of the past 50 years, the overtly racist Jimmy Carter.

Now he is taking a page out of former President Richard M. Nixon’s book of really bad things to do, and starting an “Enemies List” of American journalists.

This action raises this important question, “What does Barack Hussein Obama and his administration have against the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America?”

Let’s review the First Amendment:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

It is widely excepted that the free speech and press clause is focused on “Political” topics.  The American people have to be able to freely report on and discuss their government and the effects on them, in order to maintain a free society.

Team Lightbringer doesn’t seem to be on board with this concept.  The Obama White House, through it’s official spokesmen, have publicly attacked members of the American News Media, and public figures, who have published stories that the Obama administration doesn’t like.

What happened to the classic liberals who stated, “I do not agree with what you are saying, but I’ll defend your right to say it”?  They seemed to have been replaced with thin skinned leftists who viciously attack anyone who dares to disagree with their agenda.

Jack Tapper, of ABC News seems to be the only member of the White House press corps with a functional set of testicles and an understanding of the US Constitution.

Tapper: It’s escaped none of our notice that the White House has decided in the last few weeks to declare one of our sister organizations “not a news organization” and to tell the rest of us not to treat them like a news organization. Can you explain why it’s appropriate for the White House to decide that a news organization is not one –
Gibbs: Jake, we render, we render an opinion based on some of their coverage and the fairness that, the fairness of that coverage.
Tapper: But that’s a pretty sweeping declaration that they are “not a news organization.” How are they any different from, say –
Gibbs: ABC –
Tapper: ABC. MSNBC. Univision. I mean how are they any different?

What is this White House afraid of?  A news organization that points out that Obama has admitted Communists and supporters of pedophilia  working for him?  Aren’t those actual facts that the American people should be aware of? Doesn’t the American people have a right to know just which health insurance officials are in those secret meetings with Joe Biden?

Just to add to the stench of Obama’s “Enemies List” is the flat out hypocrisy of Team Lightbringer.  The White House talking Head Gibby specifically singled out two of Fox News’ opinion format hosts, Beck and Hannity, as the reason for the Obama White House War on Fox News (which they are spending more time and effort than the war against Islamofascism being fought in Afghanistan) at the same time they are bringing in MSNBC’s hate mongers Olbermann & Maddow, who are clearly lapdogs of the Obama Administration,  in for private briefings.

Senators steal from US troops

Monday, October 19th, 2009

The Washington Times reports:

Senators diverted $2.6 billion in funds in a defense spending bill to pet projects largely at the expense of accounts that pay for fuel, ammunition and training for U.S. troops, including those fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to an analysis.

Among the projects being funded at the possible cost United States Military Personnel lives is an educational institute named after the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, a Massachusetts democrat.

While most of the money taken from the operational military budget was from pork projects funded by democrats, there were some Republicans with their snouts in the pork trough, including the the two RINO senators from Maine.

Just what does Allah have against perky breasts?

Sunday, October 18th, 2009

I’m serious here.  The human female breast, especially perky ones, have to be one of his greatest creations, bar none.

Well, by way of Atlas Shrugged, is this disturbing story about an actual Fatwa against women with perky breasts.

A Somalian Muslim group reportedly has started whipping women in public for wearing bras that violate Islam, the Daily Mail reports.

Residents claim insurgent group Al Shabaab sent gunmen into the streets to round up women who appeared to have a firm bust. The women are inspected to see if their suspected firmness is natural or from a bra. Officials reportedly make the women shake their breasts after removing their bras.

Al Shabaab forced us to wear their type of full veil and now they order us to shake our breasts,” a resident, Halima, told Reuters, adding that her daughters had been whipped on Thursday.

The new bra rule adds to the long list of religious restrictions in Somalia, including a ban on movies, musical cell phone ring tones, dancing at weddings and playing soccer.

Don’t hold your breath waiting for the out cry from leftist so-called “feminists” in the West over this barbaric behavior.

Morning Quotes

“No legislative act contrary to the Constitution can be valid. To deny this would be to affirm that the deputy (agent) is greater than his principal; that the servant is above the master; that the representatives of the people are superior to the people; that men, acting by virtue of powers may do not only what their powers do not authorize, but what they forbid. It is not to be supposed that the Constitution could intend to enable the representatives of the people to substitute their will to that of their constituents. A Constitution is, in fact, and must be regarded by judges as fundamental law. If there should happen to be a irreconcilable variance between the two, the Constitution is to be preferred to the statute.” — Alexander Hamilton, Federalist #78

“I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground: That ‘all powers not delegated to the United States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States or to the people’ (10th Amendment). To take a single step beyond the boundaries thus specifically drawn around the powers of Congress, is to take possession of a boundless field of power, no longer susceptible to any definition.” — Thomas Jefferson, in a letter to George Washington,15 February, 1791

“Ours was the first revolution in the history of mankind that truly reversed the course of government, and with three little words: ‘We the people.’ ‘We the people’ tell the government what to do, it doesn’t tell us. ‘We the people’ are the driver, the government is the car. And we decide where it should go, and by what route, and how fast. Almost all the world’s constitutions are documents in which governments tell the people what their privileges are. Our Constitution is a document in which ‘We the people’ tell the government what it is allowed to do. ‘We the people’ are free. This belief has been the underlying basis for everything I’ve tried to do these past eight years.” — US President Ronald Reagan

“Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word: equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.” — Alexis De Tocqueville

“Pure, hard-core liberals believe in a superior race. They think they’re it. They believe they’re more intelligent than the general run of mankind, better suited than the little people are to manage the little people’s lives. They think they have the one true vision, the ability to solve all the moral dilemmas of the century. They prefer big government because that is the first step to totalitarianism, toward unquestioned rule by the elite. And of course they see themselves as the elite.” — Dean Koontz, The Face of Fear

“Today the old-fashioned liberal pretension of equality is dead. Replacing it is naked power and the use of government to protect and expand the privileged status of the Democratic Party and its courtiers and constituents. Liberals have become reactionaries, behaving as kings did centuries ago by robbing their opponents to reward their vassals. Liberals now believe that the main purpose of government is to play favorites, to bring down their foes and give privileges to their friends.” — Lowell Ponte

“Whoever claims the right to redistribute the wealth produced by others is claiming the right to treat human beings as chattel.” — Ayn Rand

My advice for Hillary Rodham Clinton

Saturday, October 17th, 2009

Run baby…Run!

Let’s be honest here, our Dear Leader gave HRC one raw fornicating deal when he made here Secretary of State. He undermined her position from day one.  First, he said that idiot Joe Biden was his “go to guy” for foreign policy.  Let’s be real here, Joe Biden is the Dan Quayle of the early 21st Century.  He’s better than a bullet proof vest for BHO.  Then our Dear Leader made the Ambassador to the UN a direct report to him.  A position that has traditionally reported to the Secretary of State.   Sorry Hillary, you just don’t matter that much to our Dear Leader and it’s clear that there are members of his inner circle that view you as a threat and will do whatever they can to sabotage you.

The governor’s seat in the state of New York is coming up and I think it could be yours if you really wanted it.  The current governor is not in that strong a position and there isn’t anybody else in the state democrat party that has your name recognition or can put together as strong a political organization as you can.

Ya, Barack Hussein Obama won’t like it, but just what has he done for you lately?  A year or so in the governor seat will give you solid executive experience in a major state, and a key state needed for a Presidential win. Ya, I said Presidential.  Let’s be honest here, SNL got it right.  BHO’s major accomplishments so far are Jack and Squat. Both William Jefferson Clinton and George W. Bush had several major bipartisan initiatives passed (i.e. successfully passed in both houses of Congress and signed into law) by their eighth month in office.  Our Dear Leader is out to make that disaster called Carter Presidency look good and he’s going to take the democrat party, not to mention the rest of the country, with down with him. You can have the 2012 nomination, but you need to get out from under the Obama wet blanket and start rebuilding your credit with America.

Now, was my readers will note, I have never been a supporter of either Hillary Rodham Clinton or husband,  but in the eight years that HRC and WJC occupied the White House, they didn’t do as much damage to America as Barack Hussein Obama has managed to do in eight months.

Update: New York Magazine cites a Gallup poll that says HRC is now more popular than our Dear Leader!

Friday B-Movie Pick: Near Dark

Friday, October 16th, 2009

I’m ramping up for Halloween with this one.

Near Dark, a dark and bloody story of Vampires roaming the modern American Southwest.  The cast includes Lance Henriksen, Jenette Goldstein, Bill Paxton and Tim Thomerson.

The scene where they go into a feeding frenzy at a out of the way bar is worth the price of admission alone.

This was one of my picks for October 31, 2008.

Morning Quote

Thursday, October 15th, 2009

From the comments in a Daily Telegraph article:

“How is it that when Righties quote Lefties, they have video, audio, and notarized confirmation from the Pope, but when Lefties ‘quote’ Righties, they have Wiki entries contributed by ‘Cobra’?”

A liberal advisor to BHO speaking honestly about ObamaCare

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

Robert Reich was Bill Clinton’s Secretary of Labor and is an advisor to our Dear Leader.
He is also a very smart fellow. He really is speaking the true and honest words you will never hear from an elected leftist politician about their plans for government controlled socialized medicine.

More raw hatred from the left.

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

MSNBC (the broadcast wing of the DNC) hate monger Keith Olbermann refers to conservative columnist Michelle Malkin as a “big mashed-up bag of meat with lipstick on it.” A classic example of dehumanization and a hate crime against women in one neat sentence. Nice job of displaying the left’s values there Keith.

Next we have MSNBC’s Chris Matthews (who has stated, on the air, that his job is to make sure the regime of our Dear Leader is a success. So much for an impartial and fair press…) calling for the murder of Rush Limbaugh for daring to oppose our Dear Leader’s rule.

This is a noticeable and serious pattern. If you dare disagree with our Dear Leader and dare to exercise your First Amendment Rights under the Constitution of the United States of America, the far left media that acts as an enforcement arm of Team Obama will dehumanize you and call for your death on national television.

Why is the left so afraid of open and honest debate of the issues and the facts?
