Ferguson, Obama, and “Your” Laws

November 24, 2014

Consequences of President Obama’s top-down attitudes on racism and the rule of law are evident in Ferguson where protestors are ignorantly shoutingwe don’t give a f**k about your laws”. That pretty much mirrors what the American public has been hearing from the White House.

Obama’s knee-jerk reactions to racially sensitive issues set a tone for the black community that has resulted in increased racial tensions in the country. Expectations of a “post-racial” era were dashed early in Obama’s first term when he took a hasty anti-police stance in the Harvard Professor Gates incident. His racial knee jerked again in the Trayvon Martin incident and sending Holder to Ferguson provided a presidential stamp of approval for turning Michael Brown’s death into a racial schism.

His disregard for the law has been on display with his willingness to ignore, skirt, and re-define immigration laws and his back-room negotiations have underscored his scorn for the “transparency” he once promised. Using executive orders to get his way shows how he feels about “your” laws, the same laws protesters “don’t give a f**k about”.

The use of “your laws” by the protesters exemplifies the disassociation and disrespect Obama displayed for this country and its laws with his “apology tour”. Once he solidified and legitimized that attitude, it was adopted by many admirers in the black community and it now fuels the Ferguson fiasco.

Disregard for the law from the top cannot help but have dire consequences. Unfortunately, we haven’t seen the last of those consequences.

King Obama

November 21, 2014

Obama once said “I am not a dictator”, but that left the title of “king” open for grabs and all he needs now is a crown. He distances himself from all mistakes and negativity like a king, lies like a king, and makes and breaks the law like a king. Furthermore, his staff, supporters, and the media refuse (fear?) to tell him he wears no pants and treat his rhetoric as royal fiat.

Obama’s latest royal fiat granting amnesty to illegal aliens falls right in line with his disrespect for the law and the Constitution, his disgust with this country, and his intent to “transform” America to match his personal views. If you’re surprised by this action you had your head in the sand for the past 6 years.

The reason given for this executive order is basically because he’s tired of waiting for Congress to do what he wants them to do. That is one of the best examples of egotistical arrogance one can find. Unabashedly announcing that he would wait until after the mid-term elections to do this was another example of arrogance and it was the only “transparency” from his White House we have seen.

He is on a kingly ego trip many still refuse to see but one that will certainly end up as a subject for historians. His speeches are heavily laden with “I” and “me” regardless of the circumstances. All wrongs are blamed on evil Republicans or FOX News and he ignores military and other expert advice if it doesn’t fit his preconceived, personal agenda.

President Nixon was accused of acting like a king, raked over the coals, and driven out of office for far less arrogance. President George W. Bush was demeaned and accused of “going it alone” by a liberal media now applauding Obama for sidestepping Congress and “going it alone”. The hypocrisy here is pathetic as it will be again when a future Republican president follows this precedent.

Obama has “transformed” himself into a king and far too many people have their heads stuck in an idealistic cloud to see the danger. We will be dealing with the unintended consequences for a long, long time.

Obama’s Immigration Scam

November 17, 2014

As Obama prepares to issue an executive order granting amnesty to approximately 5 million illegal aliens, it must be remembered that he delayed this until after the elections in an attempt to help campaigning Democrats. The delay failed to help Democrats and many are wondering why he is still going forward with it in the face of so much disapproval.

By now, it should be evident to all that Obama has deliberately and unabashedly used distortions and lies to help his personal political agenda. His changing stance on illegal immigration is one of the more glaring examples of his political deceit and all one needs to do is re-visit his earlier declarations for proof.

From the Daily Caller

President Barack Obama once declared that an influx of illegal immigrants will harm “the wages of blue-collar Americans” and “put strains on an already overburdened safety net.” “[T]here’s no denying that many blacks share the same anxieties as many whites about the wave of illegal immigration flooding our Southern border” then-Senator Obama wrote in his 2006 autobiography…“If this huge influx of mostly low-skill workers provides some benefits to the economy as a whole…it also threatens to depress further the wages of blue-collar Americans and put strains on an already overburdened safety net”…If these feel like the words of one of Obama’s opponents, it’s because they’re the exact argument the president’s critics have been making as he now rushes to announce a sweeping executive order that would give work permits to millions of illegal immigrants in the country.

Arrogant Overreach

November 13, 2014

Fingers are being pointed and excuses are being drummed up as Democrats scramble to find reasons for the beat-down they received in the mid-term elections. If they would step outside their agenda for a moment they would see the one basic reason: arrogant overreach.

Arrogance is a far-left characteristic that Obama brought to the White House and it infected his administration and the entire Democrat Party. It fueled the false beliefs that Obama had a “mandate” to transform America and that his far-left social engineering agenda was acceptable to the majority.

Because of these false “beliefs”, Obama was given free reign from Democrats and the media to do whatever he wished. This allowed Obamacare to get hastily passed into law by a Democrat Congress ignorant of its contents and willfully blind to the deceit used to sell it.

The quick and successful passage of Obamacare convinced Democrats they had a righteous infallibility and when combined with arrogance, it compelled them to overreach on almost every issue. Critics were demeaned, silenced, and ignored as free birth control, abortions, open borders, amnesty, higher taxes, troop pullout, drones, part-time jobs, bailouts, increased food stamps, school lunch programs, and much more was dumped onto society.

Obama and Democrats arrogantly forced too much too quickly. It was political overreach. Failure of many of Obama’s foreign policies can also be attributed to overreach. The world doesn’t accept change any quicker than society does, especially without investigating the consequences.

This mid-term election was proof of the adage that “pride comes before the fall”. One can debate whether pride or arrogance comes first, but they are almost always found together. One can also debate Jonathan Gruber’s claim of taking advantage of the “stupidity of the American voter” but it is a known fact that taking voter stupidity for granted can be perilous. Just ask any Democrat.

What a Deal!!

November 12, 2014

President Obama struck a deal with Chinese leader Xi Jinping to limit greenhouse gases. The deal calls for the US to severely reduce carbon emissions by the year 2025 while China can continue increasing carbon emissions until the year 2030 when it will then be required to cap them. How’s that for a deal?

Using the same unique negotiation skills that couldn’t convince Iraq to allow any of our troops to remain in-country, president Obama gave the world’s largest producer of greenhouse gases the green light to continue producing them unabated for the next 15 years.

The only way he could have sweetened that deal would have been to give China the money, coal, and equipment to help increase their carbon emissions. Then, again, Obama has 2 years remaining in office to consider putting that on the table if China tries to renege by dangerously stopping carbon emissions. China is not known for sticking to deals, so it may still happen.

Next up for Obama is negotiating Eastern Europe with Russia. Don’t be surprised if he pulls off a deal swapping Poland for some prime real estate in Chernobyl. Nothing is off the table.

A Liberal’s Criteria for Being Black

November 11, 2014

“Professor” Darron T. Smith’s column about Mia Love over at the Huffington Post perfectly displays an elite, out-of-touch, liberal view on race that continues to be a detriment to the black community and the country. It also reeks of racism.

The title of Smith’s blog begins with “She looks black, but…” which is a despicable insult to any member of the black community. Mia Love IS black, she doesn’t just “look” black, and she certainly doesn’t need Smith to instruct her on how to be black.

Mia Love is a female Republican who beat out a Democrat to win a seat in the House of Representatives and it baffles Smith that any black woman could be a Republican. He believes that Mia, who belongs to what he labels the “fringe religion” of Mormonism, “represents one of the most discriminated-against racial groups in the country” and he can’t understand how she can “negotiate so many foreboding white contexts” and belong to a group that “lags behind in every major social indicator”.

The “professor” pontificates further, condemning Mia and others like her as being “out of touch with the political realities of African Americans” who are “the only group to vote their political interests”. This ignores the reality of the damage done to the black community by leftist policies designed to maintain dependency and the lack of any return for blindly voting as a bloc for the inexperienced Obama.

Smith has the audacity to say that Mia’s “accomplishment is quite dangerous for people of color”. The only danger it poses is to Smith’s narrow and prejudicial views. Mia’s accomplishment shows that breaking out of the black liberal stereotype is more than just possible; it is also liberating and promising.

It is hypocritical for Smith to utter such backward and prejudicial nonsense while considering himself to be a liberal champion for diversity. He has a pigeon hole for blacks, a pigeon hole for whites, a pigeon hole for women, and a very special pigeon hole for black women. What a sad, small world he lives in.

Illegal Immigration Warning

November 10, 2014

Voters in Oregon, a predominantly liberal and Democrat state, handily voted to approve legalizing marijuana while voting down a measure to give driver IDs to illegal immigrants by a margin of two-to-one (67.4% to 32.6%). Oregon is considered a sanctuary state for illegals, so this is very revealing.

States have been handing out invitations, ID’s, and benefits to illegal immigrants without the public ever voting to do so. Oregon is one of the only states to put it on the ballot and the outcome should be a warning to all states and the federal government: Illegal immigration is unacceptable and inexcusable.

Many Republicans running on promises to deal with illegal immigration counter to Obama’s ways won elections. Obama delayed issuing an intended executive order for amnesty until after the election because he knew it was toxic for campaigning Democrats. He arrogantly promises to issue that order if Congress doesn’t do as he wants even though public opinion is running heavily against him.

Perhaps Obama really believes an executive order for amnesty is best for America. Perhaps he wants it only because it fits his personal “transformation” agenda. In either case, it is the wrong thing to do. Trust in his judgment has already been eroded by his backdoor legislating and his refusal to enforce immigration laws. There is no reason to believe he is right about this and many reasons to believe he is wrong.

Obama has displayed an ego that makes one believe his legacy is important to him. He has already tarnished that legacy with a failing foreign policy, a poor economy, a national health care plan in disarray, and responsibility for severe mid-term election losses. An executive order granting amnesty for illegals could be a huge all-or-nothing gamble for his legacy – and a very dangerous one for the country.

He has been warned.

Deaf, Dumb, and Blind

November 7, 2014

Deaf, dumb, and blind ideologues have not been swayed in the least by election results and are out spinning like spiders on steroids. President Obama, who told us his policies were on the ballot, totally ignored that in his voter-defying speech, thus, beginning the current spin cycle.

Nancy Pelosi, the epitome of deaf, dumb and blind, wants to remain as minority leader in the House and is trying to convince everyone that election results had nothing to do with her at all. Her spin is that the results were due to poor voter participation, even insinuating that voting obstacles (voter ID?) were the main culprit.

Pelosi’s blind adherence to Obama’s agenda puts her very near the top of a list of reasons for Democrats’ demise. She has been deaf to the public’s wishes for quite some time and the mentioning of a “non-partisan challenge” in her letter to Democrats is surreal coming from her. It would be wise to put her out to pasture but Democrats may be on enough of a self-destructive path to keep her.

Even after acknowledging that Harry Reid was one of the reasons for election losses, most Democrats remaining in the Senate (speaking of self-destruction) want him as minority leader. Reid, who personally blocked everything coming from the House, now says he looks forward to working together with Mitch McConnell, but not working together is a main reason for Democrats losing the Senate.

The always irrational Daily KOS is worriedwe won’t be able to flex our muscles as the true American majority” for the next two years and inferred that the election losses came because the president “s**ts on immigrants”. One is hard-pressed to see how a totally open border, suspending immigration laws, and promising amnesty for illegals could be seen that way. Then, again, believing the “true American majority” holds similar views proves how delusional the Daily KOS is.

The manufactured “war on women” was supposed to bring votes for Democrats but it backfired, bringing votes for Republicans. Treating the American public as being dumb shows how deaf and blind Democrats have become under an Obama administration used to doing whatever it wants. Perhaps they will now wise up, but with Reid and Pelosi still calling the shots, that is highly unlikely.

Now What?

November 6, 2014

The 2014 elections are over and Republicans won big, obtaining control of the Senate and retaining control of the House. It was an enormous defeat for Democrats and Obama’s agenda, but it remains to be seen if it will change the way things work, or don’t work, at the White House.

In his post-election speech, Obama claimed to have heard the message voters sent and he claimed he was willing to work with Republicans. However, it seems all he really heard from voters was that he now has to double-down on forcing his personal agenda onto the American public.

He arrogantly warned Congress to adhere to his immigration views or he would just veto whatever they come up with and issue executive orders. That’s his way of working with Republicans (political blackmail) and it is his egotistical “up yours” response to voters. Once again, it was a classless act from a classless president who never listened to or worked with Republicans – ever.

This election was a firm rejection of Obama’s direction for the country. Opinion polls back this up showing 70% angry at the current direction. Many Democrats and hardcore liberals are trying to spin the outcome differently, but that is just the same denial that caused their defeat. Believing their views are the same as the majority of Americans fueled the “transformation” that is failing and causing such discontent. It is time for them to listen even if Obama won’t.

Perhaps a Republican Congress can force Obama to do the right thing, but don’t bet on it. He does not have to run for re-election so he has nothing to lose. It may take legal action to stop his unilateral orders but he has to be stopped. He can do a lot more damage in two years if left unchecked.

Democrats have been given notice: Stop listening to the far left screamers and start listening to the American public. Blindly backing the wrong horse brought this about and it’s time for a real “change”. One can only hope they listen. Obama sure isn’t listening.

Holder To Monitor Polls

November 4, 2014

A recent video filmed in North Carolina from James O’Keefe, president of the Project Veritas Action Group, showed that states requiring no ID for voting provide an easy opportunity for fraudulent voting on a massive scale.

Colorado’s new election system allows voting by mail, same-day registration, ballots sent to every registered voter (who may not have voted in years), and “ballot harvesting” where one individual can collect the ballots of up to 10 people and drop them off. There is no way of monitoring that 10-ballot drop-off or the many other flaws in the system.

Voting machines in Illinois and Maryland have been found with what has been called a “calibration issue” that electronically switched votes for Republicans over to Democrats. Florida is on the look-out to prevent absentee ballot fraud which has plagued the state in recent years. A man in New Mexico tried to vote and found that an imposter had already voted in his place.

These are just some of the known voting issues defying the left’s claim that voter fraud is non-existent, yet, they scream that voter ID is voter suppression with no proof at all. One can guess what they would scream if those voting machines in Illinois and Maryland were switching Democrat votes to Republicans.

Not to worry, though, because U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is sending poll monitors to 18 states to be on the look-out for…race-based discrimination. He didn’t find it in Philadelphia when members of the Black Panthers carrying nightsticks were intimidating voters at the polls in 2008, but he’ll keep looking until he does find it – because he “believes” it’s there.

Holder is stuck on race and has turned the entire Justice Department into a race-based organization. He believes that voter ID laws are racist even though ID is required for almost everything, including attendance at an NAACP rally. He doesn’t recognize how demeaning it is to treat the black community incapable of obtaining an ID. He should have been gone long ago.
