Ridiculous Reid Rhetoric

July 17, 2014

We have an urgent humanitarian crisis occurring at our southern border brought on by a flow of (mostly) children crossing the border illegally. These children are not evading border agents; they are searching them out in order to get amnesty and the benefits an Obama executive order produced. These illegal crossings cannot currently be controlled or stopped by the totally overwhelmed federal agents assigned to the border. What would you call this?

The border is securesaid Harry Reid recently. “[Sen.] Martin Heinrich [(D-N.M.)] talked to the caucus today. He’s a border state senator. He said he can say without any equivocation the border is secure.” Perhaps both Reid and Heinrich don’t watch TV, read the papers, bother to keep up with current events, or misunderstand the meaning of “secure”. More than likely, they are both just partisan fools forcing an agenda.

Unfortunately, they are not alone. Rep. Luis Gutierrez, another Democrat, wants us to believe that children crossing illegally and handing themselves over to border agents ‘proves’ that the border is secure. This is as inane as Homeland Security telling us the recent deportation of 40 adults and children (over 60,000 children have crossed in the past 9 months) ‘proves’ the White House means business. It only proves that White House business is amnesty.

The definition of “secure” for many Democrats is as strangely nuanced as President Clinton’s definition of “is”. The White House assures us that border security is at an all-time high, citing the money and guards thrown at the problem as proof. Using that criterion, our public education system should be the best the world has ever seen, yet, many kids are graduating high school still unable to read at an 8th grade level.

Money is not the answer and Reid’s ridiculous rhetoric is an insult – and the whole world is laughing.

Media Gay Population Debunked

July 16, 2014

The world according to Hollywood and the media has once again been found to be an illusion or, more correctly, propaganda. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention conducted the first large-scale government survey measuring American’s sexual orientation and found that less than 3% of the population identify themselves as gay.

Estimates as high as 30% have been repeatedly used to shame society into approval of homosexuality and to rationalize the re-definition of marriage. 97% of Americans live in fear of reprisals ranging from societal condemnation to loss of employment for merely voicing disapproval of 3% of the population’s lifestyle – because of a media agenda.

Movies and TV shows routinely present gay families and couples as being common and abundant. Respected organizations from the Boy Scouts to the Catholic Church are being condemned and pressured for refusing to change their structure and principles to accommodate only a portion of the 3% that may want to be included. Personal attacks against CEO’s and public figures voicing opinions based on religious beliefs have now become standard.

It is certainly admirable to care about and protect minorities, especially when they are subject to extreme discrimination and violence as gays have been. No one should be treated the way gays were once treated and it is the duty of any society to protect all individuals, even if it is only a few. We have done that but we are now on the proverbial “slippery slope”.

The re-defining of marriage is taking a toll on the foundation of the country: the family unit. We are now being demanded to celebrate gay marriage rather than accept it. There are some extremists advocating gay marriage for the purpose of destroying the institution of marriage altogether. We have opened the door far enough for some to publicly advocate the acceptance and normalization of incest and pedophilia in society.

The slippery slope does, indeed, exist and the media helped the 3% tail drag the entire dog onto that slope. The CDC survey should bring a more rational perspective.

Stupid Border Line

July 11, 2014

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes displayed “superior intelligence”, nuance, and insight by insisting that too much security at the border is our problem. He tells us that the border has never been more secure and that increased security is responsible for the humanitarian crisis that is now occurring.

He ignorantly explains: “If the border was not well staffed and protected, agents probably wouldn’t be there to apprehend the unprecedented number of unaccompanied minor children who are showing up”. He further states that more security “could make the crisis even worse”.

These so-called “apprehended” children are searching out border agents in order to turn themselves in to get amnesty and US benefits. They are overwhelming border guards who are now fully engaged in child care rather than border security, thereby, creating an open border for anyone wanting to enter illegally. That open border may be Hayes’ dream come true, but it is extremely dangerous for the country.

In Hayes’ twisted logic, removing more border guards would stop these children from crossing. That is insane, but it is the world according to MSNBC and many other deranged liberals. Anything negative said about Obama is turned around and treated as a positive no matter how stupid or outrageous it is. This is knee-jerk liberalism at its best or, more accurately, its worst.

Labeling this only as a humanitarian crisis is just another rhetorical ploy. Yes, it is a humanitarian crisis, but it is also a government, immigration, border, security, social, and leadership crisis. It is the epitome of administration failure on display for all to see – and it is insulting to have Chris Hayes insist we drink his liberal Kool-Aid. You are an ass, Mr. Hayes, and you should be ashamed of yourself.

Right now, there is more security being used to keep reporters away from this “humanitarian” crisis than there is to keep illegal immigrants from crossing the border. How insane is that?

Obama Worse Than Carter

July 10, 2014

Jimmy Carter has been acknowledged by a majority on both sides of the aisle as being an ineffective, weak president, particularly on foreign affairs; therefore, increasing comparisons of Obama to Carter are a sure sign that Obama is failing badly. With more than two years remaining in his term, Obama is on a path to earning a worse legacy than Carter.

A recent poll found president Obama to be the worst president since WWII with more voters feeling that Romney would have been better. This places Carter above Obama, making a mockery of the continued positive spin coming from unconditional Obama supporters.

The economy shrank at an annual rate of 2.9% during the first three months of 2014, the worst non-recession contraction in over 40 years. The liberal New Republic magazine, however, ignores this and wants us to believe that a monthly job report for June shows the economy skipping first gear and kicking into second gear when, in fact, it is going in reverse.

Our southern border is being overrun with children crossing illegally into the country because of Obama’s personal immigration policy and reluctance to act, creating an overwhelming situation. CNN’s Sally Kohn, however, assures us: “This is not a border crisis. These kids are coming to the border, they are getting stopped, the border is working”. If this is considered “working”, one wonders what a non-functional border looks like to Kohn.

The Daily Kos, just four months ago, argued that Obama’s foreign policy made a lot of sense and was advancing our interests around the globe. This is the same foreign policy that is proving worse than Carter’s, reducing confidence and credibility in the US in all our allies and emboldening our enemies to act aggressively.

Emotional investment in Obama has blocked reality for many, but comparisons to Jimmy Carter have to take a toll. If those comparisons shred the blinders unconditional supporters wear, they could end up being a positive for Carter’s legacy. That, of course, would lower Obama’s legacy even further.

Obama’s Rock Bottom Still to Come

July 9, 2014

From Alex Castellanos at CNN

Everywhere you walk, Mr. President, the world unravels. Americans are whispering that each political missile you fire seems to hit not its target but our own house…Your Veterans Administration is a dysfunctional mess…Your immigration agents are changing diapers and crying for fresh underwear…Your own signature initiative, the Affordable Care Act, has turned on you…Your Supreme Court is telling you to read the manual that came with your office…You are protected by the thinly manned barricades of an attorney general who refuses to investigate misconduct in your executive offices…In foreign affairs, you have undone one of the great accomplishments of the 20th century…Young people who voted for you to earn a better life than their parents are now living with their parents…You have now been reduced to pathetically small political “listening tours”… Behind the smile, we see an ego inflated beyond merit. Your intellectual detachment, we now find, was merely cluelessness…The road ahead is worse for you…

Read it all here: Obama hasn’t hit rock bottom yet

Wrong Again…and Again…and Again…

June 26, 2014

One of the major concerns about Obamacare was that the government is too bureaucratic, inefficient, and wasteful to administer any kind of universal healthcare properly. This was countered with the VA being used as an example of government competency and experience in delivering quality health care. With Obama promising to clean up any existing problems at the VA (all blamed on Bush), the VA was considered a perfect example to silence critics.

Ironically, using the VA as an example turned out to be one of the few things supporters got right. The mismanagement, corruption, apathy, and abuse at the VA now coming to light are exactly what critics fear will happen with Obamacare and there is no reason to believe otherwise. If the government can neglect and abuse veterans, our most treasured human resource, it certainly can do the same to anyone.

The VA scandal, and it certainly IS a scandal, is one of the most despicable failings of our government. Decades of neglect brought this to a head but it now rests firmly in Obama’s lap. He campaigned on cleaning up the VA, promising to take on that responsibility with rhetoric as definitive as “if you like your insurance, you can keep it”. He utterly failed to do so and it now joins a long list of things he has been wrong about – or lied about – and must be held accountable for.

Supporters of Obama share the blame. Ideologues continue to back Obama unconditionally, cloaked in a denial that strengthens his resolve to “transform America”. Obama has been so wrong so often, even his harshest critics are surprised, but blind faith is proving too dense for failure to penetrate.

Again and again, Obama either neglects to act or takes the wrong action on issues important to the country and the world. Until supporters take blinders off and hold his feet to the fire, Obama will continue with a personal agenda he is convinced is good for the country. He needs to be convinced otherwise, and that can only come from supporters.

Request Underwear Elsewhere

June 24, 2014

The Department of Homeland Security is trying to fill an order for thousands of men’s underwear needed for the influx of detainees caught illegally crossing our border. Perhaps a request should go out to Mexico and Central America for help in covering the asses of their citizens who are coming here illegally. Why is it that we get no help at all from these countries? Do we even ask for help, or do we just assume responsibility?

We are being bombarded with people (including hardcore criminals and some disease-ridden) rather than missiles, but it is still a bombardment – and a foreign invasion. Isn’t that a job for our military? Isn’t it time to treat this problem as something more than just a humanitarian issue?

It has already become dangerous and our government has made no effort to stop the flow. In fact, this administration has announced to the world that the gates are wide open. Couldn’t we at least require them to bring a change of underwear? Or is that racist?

Like Mother, Like Daughter

June 24, 2014

Hillary has taken a lot of flak for her claim of leaving the White House broke. Her attempt to ingratiate herself with the common man fell flat and backfired, planting her firmly and forever among the elite. Being out of touch with reality is a common trait of the elite and it seems that Hillary has passed that onto her daughter, Chelsea.

In a recent interview, Chelsea tried to compare herself to an average 34-year-old millennial bouncing from job to job trying to find a true calling. Leaving a $600K job at NBC (A typical job for a millennial with no experience, right?), she settled on working for her parents’ philanthropic foundation, saying she felt she had a calling for this work.

Not only does Chelsea seem blind to the enormous advantage she has because of her parents, she seems to have a need to pass herself off as “one of the guys”, just like her mother. She seems to have no clue, saying: “I was curious if I could care about (money) on some fundamental level, and I couldn’t”. Most would be embarrassed to admit this in public, understanding how such an elite, privileged viewpoint sounds. Chelsea, like her mother, doesn’t see it.

Those born with a safety net under them often do not appreciate what that means. Fear of failure is not a factor in their lives and money is not a constant source of anxiety, therefore, they lack an appreciation of the difficulties most face.

Chelsea, like her mother, is part of the elite. This is the same elite railed against by Chris Matthews when Mitt Romney, another elite member, campaigned for president. Now, hypocrite Matthews pleads for us to back off his beloved Hillary, asking: “Why don’t we accept them as they are, and stop making them like us?”

Perhaps acceptance first needs to come from the elite. Like mother, like daughter, Chelsea needs to appreciate how fortunate she is and learn to handle it with more dignity and grace. Chelsea is still young enough to learn but it is clear it won’t come from her mother.

Our Government is Failing Its Responsibilities

June 16, 2014

The Preamble to the Constitution tells us very succinctly why our government exists: We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence (sic), promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity…Our government is currently failing to live up to these basic responsibilities.

Justice” for our government has been ideologically distorted to cater to minorities at the expense of the majority in order to advance the current administration’s policies. The Justice Department, led by Eric Holder, is surrounded in controversy with issues such as aggressive probing of journalists, the IRS scandal, drone attacks, and much more. It has selectively decided what to pursue and not pursue based on politics rather than justice and laws are being rewritten or ignored.

Domestic tranquility” has been severely hampered by the political partisanship pervading Congress. President Obama has established an “us against them” atmosphere for political gain and policies are being advanced that widen the divide in the country.

Providing for the country’s defense is the most egregious failure of our government. Our southern border is open due to policies set in place unilaterally by president Obama resulting in known Mexican gang members as well as possible terrorists entering the country with impunity. Obama’s abandonment of Iraq resulted in al Qaeda taking over and possibly gaining an entire country with its resources to use against us. Iran, on the verge of having nuclear weapons, may easily fill the void in Iraq or aid the terrorists to our detriment. Afghanistan is sure to follow suit when Obama’s declared abandonment comes to fruition. Putin is fearlessly resurrecting the USSR, endangering the U.S. and the entire world.

Social policies encouraged by our current government do not “promote the general Welfare”. These policies promote the “specific welfare” of groups that are politically advantageous for a transformation of America that will do nothing to “secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity”. This transformation is designed to prune our liberties to fit an idealistic agenda contrary to American traditions.

Our government’s failure to live up to these responsibilities is glaring and frightening. If we don’t get our government back to basics soon, there will be no future for our form of government.

Look Behind the Curtain

June 12, 2014

We are being told Dave Brat’s upset of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in the Virginia Republican primary was a Tea Party win. This comes after a long media campaign to convince us that the Tea Party is dead. The Tea Party was sneered upon and belittled at every opportunity in order to convince us it was irrelevant. Why, then, has there been such a quick and unanimous acknowledgment of its success?

Along with this acknowledgment comes a concentrated effort to discredit Cantor’s muddled stance on immigration as a factor and therein lies one answer. Amnesty for illegal immigrants is being rammed down the country’s throat with executive orders from president Obama who, unilaterally, is defining immigration policies his way. This has become more important than discrediting the Tea Party.

Brat made Cantor’s softness on immigration an issue. By trying to straddle the middle ground on immigration, Cantor alienated voters in his very conservative district as well as across the state. Had Cantor taken a definitive stance either way, he may have won. Lindsey Graham, an unapologetic champion of bipartisanship and compromise on immigration, won in South Carolina, proving that voters appreciate conviction. That win is being spun as a defeat for the Tea Party by those claiming Brat’s win to be a Tea Party success.

Political spin is everywhere and it is getting harder and harder to know what is and what isn’t. Our watchdog “fourth estate” stopped watching and is now part of the problem. We have a dysfunctional government led by a runaway administration backed by a sycophantic media. Voters need to look behind the curtain of propaganda to fully understand what is going on both here and around the world – and bring an end to this mess. If not, that curtain will solidify into an iron curtain, repeating a history – a history no longer taught in our progressive schools.

It not only can happen here – it IS happening here.
