BHO does not trust US Military Officers

Thursday, June 11th, 2009

Graduating Midshipmen of the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis will not be allowed to wear their swords, which are part of the official dress uniform, in presence of our Dear Leader.
According to the Washington Times, nothing resembling a weapon is to be allowed in the presence of the one described by a hard core leftist as “our great and divine leader.”

Let’s get this one straight, these are graduating Midship from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, who are about to become active duty officers of the U.S. Navy, swearing an oath to protect and defend the U.S. Constitution and Barack Hussein Obama is the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the United States of America. Yet these young men and women, who are about to put their lives on the line to implement our Dear Leader‘s foreign policy can not wear a sheathed ceremony sword in the same room as the President of the United States of America, who will be guarded by multiple Secret Service agents carrying semi-automatic handguns, fully automatic SMGs, and quite probably a few more weapons more modern and dangerous than a meter long length of steel that may or may not even have a decent edge on it.

Just which one of our Dear Leader’s handlers decided on this bit of policy that can be described as absurd, paranoid and insulting in the extreme to the men and women of United States military?

Sadly, I can’t say I’m surprised by this action, it does fit the mindset of our Dear Leader and his leftist policies.

Government Transparency, Obama Style!

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2009

Just how the porkulus money is being spent is something the Obama administration can’t tell us.

Posting “highly confidential safeguards sensitive” documents listing all the civilian nuclear sites and their activities in the United States on the Internet is apparently no problem.

I wish I was making this shit up. The official story is that this was an “accident“.

It would be comforting to think this was just another example of the incompetence that has been the norm for the Obama administration. However, given the mindset of the Obama political appointees who blocked the Justice Department staff lawyers from bringing charges of voter intimidation against the NBPP and by overruling the orders of two federal courts, stopped the State of Georgia from removing non-US citizens form their voter registration rolls, I can see one of those statist political appointee deciding that this is information that should be made available to the public. The actual threat to safety of American Citizens clearly isn’t part of their criteria.

No recession at the White House, Part II

Saturday, May 30th, 2009

Part I was our Dear Leader’s wife venturing out casually wearing $540 French designer sneakers.

Now it’s a tax payer funded “date night” trip to New York City on Air Force One our Dear Leader and his wife, while unemployment is climbing to Carter Era levels and Government Motors is expected to file for bankruptcy on Monday.

Our Dear Leader was “ready to rule on day one“, what he wasn’t ready for was to be the President of the United States of America.

Biden got one thing right

Wednesday, May 27th, 2009

Besides the secret location of the Vice-Presidential safe room, which he told members of the press about over dinner.

Back in October 2008, Joey Biden told reporters the following about our Dear Leader:

“Remember I said it standing here if you don’t remember anything else I said. Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.”
“I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate,”

We can add to the existing list of Iranian saber rattling against Israel and an ever more aggressive Communist Chinese navy, North Korea reasserting itself as a nuclear power.

The insane, show tune singing dictator of Communist North Korea apparently feels that the world’s remaining superpower is no long much a threat to him. He’s betting that Barry is more concerned with spending billions on his buddies at ACORN, millions on hookers, and spending the USA into the poor house to worry about little old Kim Il Jong. Sadly, he may be right.

Barry gets it wrong again

Friday, May 22nd, 2009

In his reaction speech to former VP Cheney yesterday, our Dear Leader said,

‘We are not going to release anyone if it would endanger our national security, nor will we release detainees within the United States who endanger the American people. As we make these decisions, bear in mind the following fact; nobody has ever escaped from one of our federal “supermax” prisons, which hold hundreds of convicted terrorists.”

This statement is a wonderful example of Clintonian word selection. It is a prime example of doubleplus good duckspeak. The Harvard Law School should be proud.

While nobody has ever escaped from a federal Supermax prison, our Dear Leader leaves out the very important fact that they are full to capacity.

Whoops! There I go again, injecting a dose of reality into a feel good BHO speech again!

By way of Ms. Malkin is this article from the Denver Post

Supermax’s approximately 480 concrete cells already are jammed with the likes of Oklahoma City bombing co-conspirator Terry Nichols, Atlanta Olympics bomber Eric Rudolph and other notorious domestic criminals. There also are 33 international terrorists, including Sept. 11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui, 1993 World Trade Center bombing mastermind Ramzi Yousef and failed airline shoe bomber Richard Reid.
Only one bed was not filled Thursday at Supermax, U.S. Bureau of Prisons spokeswoman Tracy Billingsley said.

Details like this are important, and one would hope that the President was aware of it. Which leads us the conclusion that the didn’t want the American people to know that he’s trying to pull another fast one.

Our Dear Leader is under pressure from his far left extremist base to close Camp Delta at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base. Unlike his far left extremist supporters, BHO has to deal with the actual reality of the situation, however distasteful that may be to him.

Biden’s own aide calls him a liar

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009

Personally, I don’t think Joey Biden, the democrat Vice-President of the United States of America, is a liar. Incompetent and highly prone to say things without even attempting engage his brain first, but not a liar in this case.

The case in point is Biden, who’s own party never trusted with a Senate leadership position that he couldn’t claim on pure seniority, leaked to the press the location of a secure safe room in the official Vice-President’s residence.

Leaked really isn’t the correct word to use here. Biden didn’t “leak”, he told members of the press over dinner at the Gridiron Club.

His staff is now spinning like a top on crack in an attempt at damage control. Biden’s aide Elizabeth Alexander had to officially deny Biden’s words to the press. The source of the story Ms. Alexander is denying is none other than the leftist pundit Eleanor Clift of Newsweek. Expect Obots to try and spin this latest Biden gaffee as yet another attempt by the right to smear Biden.

Ms. Clift, welcome to the vast right wing conspiracy. Your membership card and decoder ring will be delivered by secret courier as soon as he stops by Joe Biden’s “guest room” to pick up blank membership forms Vice-President Cheney left behind.

Update: Ace has some delicious snark on the subject.

Remember Cheney’s famous “undisclosed location”?

Somehow he managed to keep it undisclosed.

Joe Biden, who I am assured is much smarter than that idiot Sarah Palin, decided to disclose it, apparently.

He actually gives details. And the precise location. Which is right under his home.

Let’s be honest here. Biden is dumber than a stump. BHO picked him as VP for two very clever political reasons.
1. He helped bring Pennsylvania, an important state in the election.
2. The dude is better than bullet proof vest. The mere thought of President Biden is worth 20 Secret Service agents on the Presidential detail.

The Obama administration doesn’t meet the standards of breakfast foods

Friday, May 15th, 2009

Michelle Malkin has a very informative article detailing how our Dear Leader‘s administration fails to meet the standards they want a breakfast cereal to meet.
Here are some of the highlights:

The White House claims 150,000 jobs have been “created or saved.” But since February, the nation has lost more than 1.3 million jobs. The current 8.9 percent unemployment rate in the wake of stimulus passage is worse than the 8.8 percent unemployment figure Obama’s economists darkly predicted if Congress didn’t immediately adopt their recovery plan. (See Innocent Bystanders.)

Washington told us the “stimulus” projects were “shovel-ready” and would provide immediate relief. They’re not. The New York Times notes that the program “has paid out less than 6 percent of the money, largely in the form of social service payments to states.”

Democrat leaders baldly claimed that “There are no earmarks” in the bill. But untold tens of millions of dollars are headed to pet projects such as skateboard parks, tennis and basketball court renovation, the National Zoo, the $11 million Bridge to Microsoft, and Pennsylvania King of Pork Rep. John Murtha’s ghost airport to nowhere.

How about “Social Security?” There’s nothing secure about it. While Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid scoffed during the Bush years that “the so-called Security crisis exists in only one place – the minds of the Republicans,” the insolvency problem festered. Now, the Obama administration reports that both Social (In)security and Medicare are hurtling toward bankruptcy far sooner than previously estimated. The “trust funds” exist only in the minds of the deluded.

Yup, that’s right, democrat Senator Harry Reid lied to the American people. Instead of telling the truth, he used Social Security as a political tool to attack his enemies rather than do what is best for America. Nobody paying attention should be surprised by this.

The headline the MSM will never run

Friday, May 15th, 2009

President Obama says, “The Tea Party protesters were right!”

That is the headline the MSM won’t run. The only part of it that isn’t true, is that our Dear Leader didn’t have the testicular fortitude to come out and say it.
What he did say is exactly what the tea party protesters were complaining about:

President Barack Obama, calling current deficit spending “unsustainable,” warned of skyrocketing interest rates for consumers if the U.S. continues to finance government by borrowing from other countries.
“We can’t keep on just borrowing from China,” Obama said at a town-hall meeting in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, outside Albuquerque. “We have to pay interest on that debt, and that means we are mortgaging our children’s future with more and more debt.”

Holders of U.S. debt will eventually “get tired” of buying it, causing interest rates on everything from auto loans to home mortgages to increase, Obama said. “It will have a dampening effect on our economy.”

Kim Priestap points out the extreme hypocrisy of BHO’s behavior.

What a joke. Obama sends our deficit and debt levels into the stratosphere, and he has the nerve to actually lecture us about how dangerous that is. That is what the tea parties were all about. Hundreds of thousands of Americans took to the streets on April 15 to protest the outrageous spending the government has been doing under his watch, and what was his reaction? He ridiculed them. Then a few weeks later he goes to New Mexico and delivers a lecture about how irresponsible it is to spend money we don’t have. The gall.

Now that he has put us into the untenable position of having to borrow so much from China, he turns around and says we have to shore up health care. That means the government will spend even more money we don’t have to meddle in our lives.

That’s right kids, the Community Organizer in Chief is going to use this as an excuse to nationalize a large chunk of the National Economy. The same inefficient government hacks who run the Post Office
are going to be telling you what you can have for health care.

America elected a man with absolutely no executive experience what so ever and had never held a real job in his life. If you are surprised by his behavior, you haven’t been paying attention.

Translating Obamaspeak, Part 2

Tuesday, May 12th, 2009

The second installment in Translating Obamaspeak.

“Cap and Trade” means “Cap and Tax” in English.

“Hope and Change” means “Dope and Fail” in English.

And remember kids, “We have always been at war with Eastasia.”

Monday Morning News

Monday, May 11th, 2009

First item, an armed home invasion/robbery/rape/probably homicide was stopped because one of the victims decided not be a victim and used his firearm to drive off the attackers.

A group of college students said they are lucky to be alive and they’re thanking the quick-thinking of one of their own. Police said a fellow student shot and killed one of two masked men who burst into an apartment.

HT to Stephen Kruiser. I searched for this story on CNN and couldn’t find it. If the criminals had carried out their plan of robbery, rape and murder, the story would have been at the top of the news cycle.

Next, is this AP story that show that the early “stimulus” funds for road repair isn’t going where it is needed most.

Counties suffering the most from job losses stand to receive the least help from President Barack Obama’s plan to spend billions of stimulus dollars on roads and bridges, an Associated Press analysis has found.

In the really bad news front, prices for coffee and sugar ‘could “explode” due to supply shortages,’ according to the Financial Times.

Not surprising is the news that Team Lightbringer is planning another $60 Billion in new taxes.

On the WTF front, Fannie Mae is hitting the government up for more taxpayer money after losing $23.2 Billion dollars. Why did the executives at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac get millions in bonuses? What it because they are supported by democrat members of Congress?
