INITIATING FEAR BY TELLING THE PUBLIC NOT TO ALLOW FEAR

November 16, 2016

For well over seven years we’ve all observed that President Obama is a great orator. He delivers the lines from his ever-present Teleprompter with great aplomb. I have also observed many times over that if you watch his face as he reads the words scrolling it says, “Who the hell wrote this? Nobody’s gonna to believe this crap”.

With his re-election, however, that non-verbal expression vanished. An air of exalted haughtiness became apparent. A more Gruberesque attitude prevailed with every new locution. The demeanor became more like, “The American people are so stupid that they’ve bought everything I’ve said up until now. Why question if they’ll believe this or anything I say”?

While dividing the country like a giant pizza (black v. white, young v. mature, poor v. middle class and above, LGBTQ v. straight, etc.), he would stand behind a podium and Teleprompters proclaiming how he has managed to unite the country. As he promoted regulations against business (either via EPA, IRS or other agencies under his thumb) that prohibited growth and stifled the work force he boasted how he, and he alone, was able to steer the nation from the abyss of recession. With millions of people out of work so long they can no longer receive unemployment benefits, he proclaims how the unemployment rolls have declined. Today, over 37% of the potential workforce remains idle. Welfare distribution to poverty stricken families and the new poor has skyrocketed.

His words do not match his actions. To be truthful, they are most frequently polar opposites.

In a stated effort to unite the world he claimed had been left asunder by his predecessor, he started his presidency with an apology tour. He bowed to adversarial monarchs and autocratic leaders in the East. That strengthened the resolve and antagonism of our enemies. Unedited history will surely reflect his presidency as one of acquiescence, not leadership.

He’s now ending his reign on a note to make it harder for his successor to rectify the differences created within our own country and around the globe. With the same superciliousness he has exuded throughout his time in office, he warned the people of Greece and the people of the world “to guard against a rise in a crude sort of nationalism, or ethnic identity, or tribalism”.

Without specifically identifying Donald Trump, he also made sure to mention that “targeting specific racial, religious or ethnic groups could backfire”. He, Barack Obama, did it successfully. He mastered it! At this point point in time he has been given a pass, but don’t let anyone else try it. Along with his obedient compliance to the unrequited demands of global despots, his legacy must include this passive aggressiveness.

Continuing his “Fear of the Future” expedition, he went on to say, “Globalization, combined with technology, combined with social media and constant information, have disrupted people’s lives, sometimes in very concrete ways, but also psychologically. People are less certain of their national identities or their place in the world. It starts looking different and disorienting.”

He and his pastel lemmings championed political correctness. This common core lack of specificity is a major factor in confusing the issues of the day. When you cannot honestly identify a situation, you cannot work to resolve any problems created by it!

Now is not the time to fear the future for it once again offers potential. Now is the time to begin anew with an invigorated administration. Bye, bye Barack.

WE’RE ALMOST THERE

February 8, 2016

“Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it.” Edmond Burke
“Those who do know history and dare to repeat it are either subversive or idiots.” Bob Kiddie

U.S.S.R.,     Venezuela,     Cuba,     Greece,     Argentina,     America

Everytime a Marxist/Socialist/Communist government comes into power, things get worse for the masses.

Obama wants to make everybody financially equal. It’s impossible and it’s been tried before, many times before. This narcissist is sure he is the one who can make it work. He took the opportunity to ruin America’s already faltering economy in order to bring about his ideal homology. Yes, we have had downturns before. And, as before, this one was only made worse through the workings of liberal progressives; Marxists, if you will.

With the help of four congresses, he has plunged the economy as if it were a balking toilet. Beginning with the give-away program known as American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (aka Stimulus) that did little other than line the pockets of his major donors, President Obama has managed to more than double over 235 yrs of accumulated national debt in only 7 years. Under his reign, the middle-class is now melding into the poverty stricken.

The open borders mandate is but one example of how he keeps wages to a minimum and flooding the Welfare offices with migrants and refugees. He is following the plan laid out by Cloward and Piven. Their strategy was to overload the Welfare system creating a crisis that would lead to a national system of “a guaranteed annual income”. This, the proud and devout Marxists exclaimed, would end poverty.

According to a recent Washington Examiner article, more than 90 percent of recent Middle Eastern refugees are on welfare. His plans are to increase that population 8-10 fold. Just think what could happen if Bernie or Hillary takes over.

As our elected leaders do everything possible to redistribute wealth from the richest to the poorest among us (keeping 60%-80% for administrative purposes), they truly only widen the separation between those with wealth and those with little. Invariably, the rich get richer and the poor get poorer as the middle-class drops to the bottom. Economic equality can only be achieved when everybody is well educated, has high self esteem and sound work ethic. When those qualities are high, so is the well-being of all the citizens. When it is low…well, we get what we’ve got.

Obama is cunningly allowing us to laugh at him for his concern over global weather. It takes away from his overall destruction of the nation. It is planned, and it is working. We are headed the way of Greece, Italy, Argentina and Cuba.

Socialist and Communist countries may have a smattering of people “getting by” on their own. These countries have basically only two classes of people – the rich and the poor. The poor are government dependent for their food, housing, transportation, health care and general well-being. We’re almost there!

HOW TO BANKRUPT A COUNTRY

January 26, 2016

Over the past seven years, and even before that, the federal administrative bureaucracy has grown and grown. Now, you have another new agency to usurp your tax dollars and cause greater borrowing from our enemies – and I don’t mean just Hillary’s and Barack’s Republican opposition this time.

With the formation of each new federal entity, there is office space to be leased or purchased, desks and other furniture to fill the space.  There are people to hire, pay, allow expense accounts, provide health care for, and continue paying when they leave their post. Either they receive ongoing retirement pay or separation pay or both, but they still get paid after leaving the job.

This time it is the creation of the National Background Investigations Bureau (NBIB). The ineptness of the Federal Investigation Services (not to be confused with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI) apparently didn’t have a large enough staff and management team to foolishly spend enough of your hard-earned money. Thus, $97 million more of your money is now going to an expanded but still ineffective and inept background check and data security agency.

Liberals never think in terms of streamlining, efficiency, accountability and responsibility. They only, and always, seek ways to spend more of your money and employ greater mediocrity.

Got a problem? Hey, that gives us the opportunity to add a new division or agency or bureaucratic offshoot with little oversight that’s even more intrusive.  We guarantee the new entity will only make your life more uncomfortable and more costly. We’ll give it a cool name that sounds like it may actually do something. Don’t fret though, we’ll keep the bumbling know-for-naughts employed that couldn’t do the job in the first place to make the unemployment numbers look better. In fact, we’ll hire more!

Pay attention now! This new taxpayer burden is in addition to Atty Gen. Loretta Lynch’s request for $80 million.  That money is to implement the invasive and unmanageable background checks that President Obama has deemed into existence by Executive Order.

Even with the new agency at full staffing with morning donuts and coffee provided, there is still no guarantee that unvetted “refugees” and illegal aliens from around the world will be properly scrutinized. Many illegal aliens and refugees are allowed to remain in the U.S. without the government verifying their full names, medical or global criminal history.

Two thousand more daydreaming, porn watching government pencil pushers will still authorize full citizenship benefits to 90% of the gang members, cartel bosses or psych ward escapees applying for federal positions or gun permits.  It will, however, take the U.S. one step closer to the financial meltdown we see in Greece and Italy.

TRUTH AND MEDIA

July 1, 2011

I just don’t know what to believe anymore. The national and international news is so distorted that we haven’t a clue what is real and what is manufactured for effect.  In an interview with CNN, Michelle Obama even said, “Fortunately, we have help from the media. I have to say this: I’m very grateful for the support and kindness that we’ve gotten”.

In this case, she was referring specifically to the media not invading the privacy of the first daughters. That would be the very same media who headlined every antic or misstep in which Jenna or Barbara Bush could be caught. The same media that Michelle is so grateful for made jokes and plastered them on the front, above the fold or early pages of section A or teased the nightly news with them. Going back a bit further, the Clinton first daughter, Chelsea, was also off limits.

If the news is so eager to tear down a Republican president’s child and protect those of Democrats, how can we believe there is any truth presented regarding policies coming from the White House under control of either party?

If you listen to someone on the left, you will undoubtedly hear that FOXNews is a right-wing, Republican outlet with no balance as advertised. There will never be a mention of MSNBC. If FOXNews is so right-wing, the presentations are certainly balanced by the red-faced, hate spewing personalities on MSNBC. So we’ll call that a wash. Both right and left have their allies and adversaries. Print media, NPR, PBS…not so much. The left certainly has the upper hand when it comes to you hearing what they want you to hear.

When predictions are made about upcoming political events, policy changes, legislation, etc. by conservatives, be they regarding local, national or global events the predictions are either touted as insane, hate mongering, bigoted, racist.  When quoted by liberals or quietly mentioned and dropped. Reason, logic and historical events generally play a part in the conjectures from conservatives with hope and vacuity reserved for liberals. When touted insane and the predictions prove correct there is no apology from the media; there is no correction printed or broadcast.  The story is forgotten. When applauded and the predictions do not pan out for the liberals, the only place you will hear about it is from right of center talk radio or FOXNews, never the New York Times or the Washington Post or MSNBC.

So, how are Greece, Libya, Syria, Egypt, Iran and the rest of the volatile Middle East really doing? What is the truth about jobs and the economy here? We may never know for sure until it is too late. I, for one, certainly don’t know what is real and what is Memorex.
