Obama blocks clean, safe & plentiful electrical power

Sunday, May 10th, 2009

The American Thinker reports that our Dear Leader is planning on killing any new Nuclear Power Plants by cutting funding for storage of what should be reusable fuel.

This is a clear indication that our Dear Leader feels that pandering to the watermelon moonbats that make up his base is more important than rebuilding the American economy and energy independence. Personally, I’m not surprised.

What is Gov Patrick thinking?

Friday, May 8th, 2009

What is it with the Peoples Commonwealth and bat shit crazy democrat governors?
First it was that certifiable idiot Michael Dukakis, who decided that letting convicted murders out on furlough so they could rape and kill innocent people while still technically serving their sentence for another murder.

Now we have our Dear Leader‘s good buddy democrat governor Deval Patrick, who while cutting state aid to towns and cities, resulting in pink slips for police, fire fighters & teachers, is spending state taxpayer dollars on free cars for people on welfare.

Really, I can’t make this shit up. Not just free cars, but free insurance, repairs and AAA membership. The taxpayers are even paying the inspection fees and excise tax for these cars.

House Minority Leader Brad Jones (R-North Reading) nails it. “I just don’t see this as a core function of government.” One small issue with Mr. Jone’s statement, take out the word “core.”

This is just a waste of taxpayer money, plain and simple.

Dangerously Incompetent

Monday, May 4th, 2009

One week ago today, a low flying 747, being followed by an Air Force F-16, buzzed lower Manhattan.
Residents of New York City remember all too well the results of low flying passenger jets from the morning of September 11, 2001. That is a date burning into the memory of most Americans.

Most, not all. There are those, who unlike the majority of Americans, live in a 9/10/2001 world. People who think there is no real terrorist threat and that a strong military will incite America’s enemies to violence.

Let’s get back to that low flying jumbo jet being followed by an Air Force F-16 over lower Manhattan. It wasn’t another terrorist attack. It was one of the 747 aircraft used by the US Air Force to transport the President. Why was it flying low, unannounced over lower Manhattan? Well, an idiot by the name of Louis Caldera, hired by our Dear Leader decided that some new publicity photos of Air Force One were needed. Caldera, the current head of the White House Military Office, is a finance guy with a history of overseeing companies currently under investigation for fraud.

How did the residents of New York City respond to a low flying jumbo jet buzzing the site of the 9/11/02 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center Towers? Predictably, there was panic and buildings were evacuated. NYC Mayor Bloomberg, who was not notified of the event, had the following to say about it:

“First thing is I’m annoyed – furious is a better word – that I wasn’t told. “Why the Defense Department wanted to do a photo op right around the site of the World Trade Center catastrophe defies imagination. Poor judgment would be a nice ways to phrase.”

“Had I known about it I would have called them right away and asked them not to. The good news is it was nothing more than an ill considered, badly conceived, insensitive photo op – with the taxpayers’ money.”

Wait! It gets better! The White House Military Office decided that it would better if nobody knew about this! When the FAA contacted the NYPD and other city officials, they were specifically warned not to tell anyone about the planned buzzing of Ground Zero.

The list of people not to be told apparently included White House Clown, official title: Press Secretary, Gibbs.

Let’s get the heart of the matter here. Team Lightbringer clearly lives in a 9/10/2001 world. No sane American would have authorized a large passenger jet to buzz Ground Zero after the attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. The only people who have live in a fantasy world that believes what Michael Moore tells them.

We have team running the executive branch of the United States government who deny the reality of serious threat not only to the United States of America, but western civilization as well. The Islamofascist terrorists who attacked the United States on 9/11/01 (and many other attacks around the world prior to and after that date) are not just protesting US policy in the Middle East, they are attacking us because of our other policies as well. These are our policies of not stoning homosexuals to death, for not beating women who wear clothes that show more than their eyes in public, and our policy of not committing genocide against Jews worldwide.

Having people in such serious denial over reality in charge of our nation’s foreign policy and our military could have dire effects. Remember that next time you go to vote.

Update: It’s estimated that it cost the taxpayers $328,835 to terrorize the resident of New York City and now Team Lightbringer isn’t going to release the photographs.
You remember the photographs, that was the reason Obama appointee Louis Caldera had a large passenger jet fly low over Ground Zero unannounced.

Don Surber points out that our Dear Leader won’t release photographs of his administration terrorizing Americans, but it will release photographs of “alleged abuse by US personnel of war on terror detainees during the Bush administration…” So remember kids, no matter how badly BHO screws up, the democrats will try to spin it as “Bush’s fault!”

Update: Michelle Malkin has more on Team Lightbringer’s “lack of transparency” and how he is just following democrat tradition.

No recession at the White House

Friday, May 1st, 2009

Our Dear Leader & his wife are not feeling any pinch due to the current economic downturn (Thank you very much Barney Frank).

This is made quite clear by our Dear Leader‘s wife venturing out casually wearing $540 sneakers.
Way to show that our so called “leaders” are completely out of touch with the problems of everyday Americans.

Update:Smell the hypocrisy as we recall the left’s ranting over Senator McCain’s shoes, and complete lack of outrage from the DNC/MSM over our Dear Leader‘s wife wearing $540 designer sneakers from a Paris line. The only sound from the leftist media is the fawning over her ‘fashion sense.

Massachusetts Legislature to Citizens: Screw You.

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

In state well know for out of control government spending, corruption, and general inefficiency, our completely out of touch reality and massively democrat majority legislature has decided to raise the sales tax from 5% to 6.25%.

Even our clueless “Cadillac of Governors” has figured out that this is a bad idea and threated to veto it. So his democrat allies in the State House responded by passing the bill with a veto proof majority.

What did Pelosi know and when did she know it?

Thursday, April 23rd, 2009

According to the Wall Street Journal,

…members of Congress from both parties have been fully aware of [enhanced interrogation techniques] since the program began in 2002. We believed it was something that had to be done in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks to keep our nation safe. After many long and contentious debates, Congress repeatedly approved and funded this program on a bipartisan basis in both Republican and Democratic Congresses.

By “enhanced interrogation techniques”, the WSJ is referring to techniques that would be considered light hazing in most fraternities and sororities on major college campuses across the country.

Not only has our Dear Leader has, against the advice of the current and four prior CIA directors, told the Islamofascists exactly what to expect once captured, he has also “opened the door to possible prosecution of Justice Department attorneys who provided legal advice” on the hazing techniques used. The WSJ correctly identifies this as “It seems that he has capitulated to left-wing groups and some in Congress who are demanding show trials over this program.”

Now in the cooperative spirit of bi-partisanship that our Dear Leader talks so much about, any such investigations should a deep probe into the Congressional leaders who approved of the program, including Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. If Pelosi, Reid, and other key democrat congressional leaders are not included and prosecuted with the same vigor as any Justice Department staffers, Republican members of Congress, or former members of the GWB administration, then it will be clearly visible to citizens of the United States that the extremist left is engaging in a purely partisan Witch Hunt.

Update: To no rational thinking adults surprise, democrat “leader” Pelosi has flat out lied about her prior knowledge.

BHO’s slap in the face to America

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

Hundreds of thousands of Americans protested against massive government spending and the crushing federal debt, and our Dear Leader responded by getting his entire cabinet to cut about half of what BHO spend on his inauguration.

Let’s put this in perspective. This is the equivalent of a family with an annual income of $60,000 cutting $6 out of their budget.

The Spin Meter points out a few examples of just how small the President’s gesture is:

$100 million amounts to:

–Less than one-quarter of the budget increase that Congress awarded to itself.

–Less than half the cost of one F-22 fighter plane.

–7 percent of the federal subsidy for the money-losing Amtrak passenger rail system.

–1/10,000th of the government’s operating budgets for Cabinet agencies, excluding the Iraq and Afghan wars and the stimulus bill.

Oh, and if you thought he was asking for new cuts, guess again.

Many of the savings he asked them to achieve are already under way and are included in the calculation.

So what we have is an empty promise and a massive government spending spree, unparalleled in American History, and a crushing debt our grandchildren will still be paying off.

Is this the “Hope & Change” you were expecting?

Update: While our Dear Leader makes empty gestures at “cutting costs”, he’s printing up more money to spend outside the US. In this case $100 Billion for the International Monetary Fund. You remember the IMF, that’s the organization that reimbursed tax cheat and Secretary of the Treasury Tim Geithner for taxes he never planned on paying.

Another diplomatic failure from Team Lightbringer

Thursday, April 9th, 2009

The Washington Times reports that the Vatican has “rejected at least three of President Obama’s candidates to serve as U.S. ambassador to the Holy See” because of their pro-abortion stances.

If our Dear Leader hopes to meet Pope Benedict XVI in July, he should have a ambassador in place first. I’m sure the White House would never dream of sending a staunch anti-Communist to meet with the Communist Dictators of Cuba, so this must be some sort of logistical issue. It is likely that in the highly diverse and tolerant liberal democrat administration, there isn’t one person of significant rank (and for an ambassador, that includes anyone who donated a big pile of money during the campaign) who supports the Pro-Life agenda.

HT to The Other McCain

Update: Team Obama continues its foreign policy record of Epic Fail by attempting to make one of his campaign supporters, who is also strongly pro-abortion, to the post of Ambassador to the Vatican. In this case, it’s Princess Caroline of the democrat political Kennedy dynasty. Does the President also plan on attempting to give the Pope a wedgie when they meet?

Of course, the Vatican has rejected this attempt as well. Bill Clinton was experienced and smart enough not to drop the ball on a simple diplomatic appointment like this one. He picked the former Mayor of Boston, democrat and a more observant Roman Catholic than Princess Caroline, whom the Vatican had no problems accepting as the Ambassador of the United States of America.

It seems that a simple task of finding a Pro-Life democrat to appoint to this post is beyond the skill set of Team Lightbringer. The other explanation I put forward may be true. It’s not a simple task, because the “highly diverse and tolerant liberal democrat administration” of our Dear Leader doesn’t include a single democrat who supports a Pro-Life agenda and nobody in their circle of friends/co-workers is a democrat who supports a Pro-Life agenda.

So much for that “big tent” diversity thing. It appears that this simple level of diversity is not part of “Hope & Change.”

Well, we got some change…

Monday, April 6th, 2009

Our Dear Leader did bring us “Hope & Change.” I’m hoping for a return to sanity in the 2010 elections and in two months, Americans are now more divided politically than ever.

That’s change we can believe in!

…and the hits keep on rolling in.

Wednesday, April 1st, 2009

First, yet another Obama nominee who has a problem paying taxes. This time it’s Health and Human Services nominee Kathleen Sebelius, who owed more than $7,000 in back taxes. Our Dear Leader is barking up the wrong tree by raising taxes on the “rich” (which with today’s $0.70 hike in cigarette taxes includes everybody). He should just get democrats to pay their taxes.

Next, following up on his embarrassingly stupid gift to the British PM, our “oh so smart” President gives the Queen of England an iPod.

Then BHO’s “top notch” media team screws the pooch on scheduling with the US media.

Didn’t the democrats tell us he was the “smart one?”

HRC may be evil, but she was at least competent.
