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.

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.

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.

Yes – This Election Is About Obama

November 3, 2014

Many Democrat candidates now distancing themselves from Obama are trying to say that this election is not about Obama – but it is. How can it not be?

Democrats have unconditionally backed Obama’s agenda. That includes his executive orders, his failing foreign policies, his poor economy, his refusal to enforce the law or take responsibility for failure, his demonizing of FOX News, and his “transformation of America”. They even blindly backed Michelle’s unrealistic lunch program – the one now being dropped like a hot potato.

Many Democrats were elected to office riding the coat tails of the idealistic Obamacare, blindly echoing Obama’s ruse of keeping our health plans and doctors. Criticism of Obama was unabashedly attributed to racism and a “GOP war on women” was manufactured to scare up women’s votes. Democrats bought into it all and cannot now pretend otherwise.

Democrats were eager for power and wanted to “make history” so Obama’s inexperience and personal desire for social engineering was ignored. The mainstream media, predominantly Democrats, invested their journalistic integrity in Obama – and lost. This election is about them, too.

The Democrat House and the Senate were rubber stamps for Obama and when the House became a Republican majority, the Senate under Harry Reid’s dictate blocked everything sent their way, aided by House minority leader Nancy Pelosi. This election is about Reid and Pelosi, too.

Obama’s rallying cry of “hope and change” has become “I hope they change” from a majority of the American people believing the country is going in the wrong direction. They are right, but they need to come out and vote in order to begin to change that direction.

Yes, this election is about Obama – and the sycophantic Democrat Party. Don’t let anyone tell you differently.

Michelle Losing Food Fight

October 30, 2014

Michelle Obama’s anti-choice campaign to make children eat what she wants them to eat is falling apart at the seams. Kids, parents, and school systems across the country have had enough of her government school lunches and are, literally, throwing them away.

The National School Board Association reports that since the “Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act” was passed in 2010, 83.7% of school districts saw an increase in plate waste and 76.5% saw a decrease in participation by students. School districts are dropping out of the school lunch program (321 districts in 43 states in 2013) at an increasing rate, some opting to start their own lunch programs.

In typical government fashion, a one-size-fits-all calorie limit has been established leaving many kids hungry and many lunches unappetizing. Michelle Obama’s kids dine on chicken wings, Cuban sandwiches, cheese steaks, and meatball sandwiches at the elite, private school they attend, but her school lunch program for the masses doesn’t allow anything like that.

Under the federal guidelines, some lunches seem like a joke. In Chickasha, Oklahoma, angry parents complained about a so-called “Munchable” meal consisting of a couple of slices of lunch meat, a couple crackers, and two pieces of cauliflower. Many lunches are skimpy, unappealing and, for many, simply revolting.

Some students are boycotting the lunch program, a move that can cause a financial loss to the school and force a change. Many students are just throwing the lunch away. Sadly, under-privileged children who may not get another meal all day go hungry and receive far too few needed calories.

There has been little negative press for Michelle because, like her husband, she received unconditional media support. She also has the same elite, liberal mindset as her husband, believing she knows best what is good for all. She will now join her husband under the bus as it all comes crumbling down – as predicted.

Angry Voters

October 28, 2014

A recent CNN poll found “nearly 7 in 10 Americans are angry at the direction the country is headed and 53% of Americans disapprove of President Barack Obama’s job performance”. Angry voters should direct their anger at themselves for having elected Obama – twice – after ignoring evidence of the direction Obama intended all along.

Details of Obama’s “transformation of America” were there between the lines of his campaign rhetoric but the mainstream media was intent on “making history” and pushing their own idealistic agenda, so they kept details hidden. Those trying to reveal the truth were labeled racists or right-wing radicals and were ridiculed. Far too many voters allowed themselves to be duped.

The black community overwhelmingly and blindly voted for Obama solely because he was black, willfully ignoring his radical background, inexperience, and intent. They certainly should be angry at themselves for allowing emotions and unrealistic expectations to overcome common sense. Obama’s policies, especially on immigration, have done more harm than good for the black community.

A majority of women, too, voted for Obama – twice. His administration’s politically manufactured “GOP war on women” is as insulting as treating women as if they are only concerned with birth control and abortion. Women should be angry at themselves for allowing such political manipulation to continue unchallenged.

Unfortunately, too many young voters have been indoctrinated by the liberal, progressive academia to know they should be angry. They have little personal experience of America’s greatness to understand the damage caused by Obama. They have been conditioned (brainwashed?) to government handouts and America-bashing and do not realize how demeaning that is. Someday, they may, but their votes are needed now, before it’s too late.

There are many valid reasons for voter anger, but action is needed rather than anger. It would be disastrous to allow voter anger to become voter apathy. The time to turn this around is now. Vote angry and vote wisely.

Obama Ignores Terrorism

October 25, 2014

After declaring Al Qaeda defeated (and taking credit for it), president Obama returned to social engineering and the forcing of his “transformation” agenda upon the country. Terrorism was a fly in his agenda’s ointment, so denying the severity and often the very existence of it, especially here at home, became his politically expedient way of handling the “distraction”. Michelle Malkin takes Obama to task for this dangerous evasiveness.

From Michelle Malkin

President Obama says he’s “shaken” by this week’s violent attacks on three soldiers in Ottawa by an Islamic jihadist. He immediately phoned Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper to offer support and “solidarity”… Too bad Obama didn’t show the same resolve after multiple attacks and plots against our troops by Muslim terrorists on our soil…Where was President Obama when Muslim Muhammad Hussain was arrested in Maryland in 2010 after scheming to blow up an Army recruitment office?…Where was President Obama when Muslim Pvt. Naser Jason Abdo was arrested in 2011 with explosives, a gun and jihadi propaganda?… Where was President Obama when a gang of Islamic thugs in Newburgh, NY was arrested plotting to “bring death to Jews” at nearby synagogues and “commit jihad”?… Where was President Obama in June 2011 when Seattle jihadists were busted after plotting to attack the Military Entrance Processing Station?… Where was President Obama when Musim convert Muhammad Yusuf was caught by New York City police in 2011 building a pipe bomb he planned to use to kill police and U.S. soldiers returning from war in Iraq and Afghanistan?… Where was President Obama after an Islamic terrorist ring in Raleigh, NC got busted in 2009 plotting to bomb military installations and die “as martyrs in furtherance of violent jihad”?…
Where was Obama? Sabotaging our borders, restricting our gun rights, working to free Gitmo jihadists, decrying Islamophobia, demonizing conservatives, welcoming jihad sympathizers to the White House and putting politics over national security.

NY Times Upset Over Democrat Panic

October 22, 2014

A recent NY Times editorial expressed dismay over the “panicky Democratic flight away from President Obama”, complaining that “nervous members of his own party have done a poor job of defending his policies over the nearly six years of his presidency” which allowed “a Republican narrative of failure to take hold”. That’s a lot of blind rationalization to swallow.

It is certainly not credible that a Republican “narrative” beat the media’s (especially the Times’) constant and unconditional positive spin on Obama. Who can really believe that Democrats (Pelosi, Reid, Chris Matthews, Barbara Boxer, etc.) didn’t defend his policies? That’s pretty much all they did while refusing to entertain or acknowledge any criticism. Only the Democrat panic part rings true.

The Times’ editorial board reached backward for successes but failed to see the failure those so-called “successes” have become. Pointing to the 2009 stimulus bill as a reason for economic recovery ignores the fact that our economy is still doing poorly and has not recovered. Boasting the creation of “2.5 million jobs” ignores that 75% of jobs created this year are part-time and that 9.5 million people have left the workforce under Obama’s poor economy.

Pointing to the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) as another “success” is laughable considering that it is a main factor responsible for all those part-time jobs and the exodus from the workforce. Rate increases, reduced coverage, policy cancelations, and uncertainty plague the nation (with more to come) in order to provide health insurance for approximately 10% of the population – and only 10% of those have actually obtained insurance so far. That’s one sad “success” story.

The NY Times’ editorial board makes no mention of foreign policy, Obama’s most glaring failure, or the continuing indecision he displays. Instead, they travel back to the good old days when blind faith in Obama ruled the day, all Democrats were in lock-step, and Obama’s word was sacred. Times have changed, but it seems that the Times hasn’t.

It’s time to vote for another “change”.

Democrats Politicize Ebola

October 16, 2014

It didn’t take long for Democrats to politicize the dangerous Ebola outbreak and begin blaming Republicans. A TV ad from the liberal Agenda Project tries to lay blame on Republican cuts in CDC funding for the current Ebola fiasco. The Huffington Post, some Democrat members of Congress, and even Hillary Clinton are also pointing to budget cuts to the CDC and NIH (National Institutes of Health) as reasons for poor preparation for the outbreak. These claims are easily debunked and the truth, as usual, is that government agencies are becoming more incompetent, inefficient, politically correct, and out of control.

From Michelle Malkin:

At $7 billion, the Centers for Disease Control 2014 budget is nearly 200 percent bigger now than it was in 2000. Those evil, stingy Republicans actually approved CDC funding increases in January larger than what President Obama requested…while Ebola and enterovirus D68 wreak havoc on our health system, the CDC has been busying itself with an ever-widening array of non-disease control campaigns…mandatory motorcycle helmet laws…$10 million last year to study violent video games… funded countless studies to prevent boo-boos and accidents on the nations’ playgrounds…funded studies and campaigns “promoting positive community norms” and “safe, stable, nurturing relationships” in homes and schools…Why is this the CDC’s business?

In 2000, the agency essentially lied to Congress about how it spent up to $7.5 million earmarked each year since 1993 for research on the deadly hantavirus…The CDC also misspent $22.7 million appropriated for chronic fatigue syndrome and was investigated in 2001 for squandering $13 million on hepatitis C research…the CDC has its own private funding pipeline…To date, the entity has raised some $400 million to support the CDC’s work.

Voter Ignorance

October 15, 2014

On the “Morning Joe” show, longtime NY Democrat Donny Deutsch said: “There is a psychological reason to go to Mitt Romney…We kind of made a mistake four years ago. We get to do a do-over. He was right about Syria, he was right about a lot of things.” This is much more than just voter remorse; it is an admittance of voter ignorance.

The “we” Deutsch refers to are those who wanted to make history rather than make sense and those who refused to believe that experience counts. It was just plain stupid to vote for someone who had absolutely no experience at anything. Voting for Obama the second time was little more than blind partisanship.

Far too many people are ignorant of the issues and end up casting votes based solely on single issues, party affiliation, or just appearance. In national elections, that is irresponsible and dangerous. Deutsch foolishly thinks he gets a “do-over”, but some of Obama’s “transformation” is not reversible and the damage already done will take years to repair.

Obama tells crowds exactly what they want to hear and he uses emotionally charged issues to rally support. Nationalizing health insurance (Obamacare) and bringing our troops home from Iraq were the two issues he focused on and negative consequences of both were ignored. Those consequences were predicted but ignored by voters and we are in turmoil because of it.

Democrats are now campaigning as if they never agreed with Obama’s failing policies, but they all did. Many voters are unaware of this duplicity but it is a major factor in November’s elections because if elected, many of those Democrats will shed their denial and continue with Obama’s failed policies.

Much is said about the right to vote but little is said about the responsibility that comes with it. Voters are responsible for understanding the issues and the candidates. Stay home if you can’t shoulder that responsibility rather than cast an ignorant vote. The future of our country depends on it.
