Newsmax.com reports that
President Joe Biden will give his first address to Congress as commander in chief on Wednesday, but according to a New York Post report, increasing numbers of Republicans appear poised to miss it.
The timing is a big part of the issue: On Wednesday, the Senate will be in session but the House will not. Many members of the lower chamber, back home in their districts and taking part in committee work virtually, find themselves in a bind, said the Post.
Logistics for the speech were being overseen by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Several Republican lawmakers have asked Pelosi to reconsider a time when both the Senate and the House are in session.
According to the New York Post, Rep. Claudia Tenney wrote a letter to Pelosi about the timing of the event. Tenney also asked that Pelosi allow all members to attend, instead of inviting only some from each party in the name of pandemic-appropriate social distancing:
“In our nation’s history, it is unprecedented to convene a joint session of Congress such as this without extending an invitation to all Members of Congress. We understand the need to prioritize the safety of Members and believe strongly that with the right precautions and social distancing measures a space designed to accommodate almost 1,000 individuals can operate at about 50 percent capacity to safely accommodate all members of the House and Senate who attend.”
Pelosi has not responded to the letter.
Invites for the event, evenly distributed between Democrats and Republicans, are being doled out by the leader of each caucus, a Capitol Hill official told The Post.
What’s more, though, Punchbowl News reported this week that a considerable number of lawmakers, asked if they wanted to attend, said no or offered no answer at all.
“Not that I’m aware of,” Sen. Joni Ernst, Iowa Republican and member of the party leadership, replied when asked if she planned to go, the Post article said. “I don’t think I’ll probably attend.”
“I don’t know the answer to that,” Sen. Josh Hawley, Republican of Missouri said in a similar vein, the Post said. “I haven’t decided.”
Some Republicans did express a desire to go, though.
Republican Sen. Lindsay Graham of South Carolina said, “I don’t agree with his policies, but he’s a fine man.”
“I would frankly prefer to go. I think the whole House should be there,” Republican Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio was quoted as saying. “He’s supposed to be talking to Congress.”
So, San Fran Nan is in charge of the logistics.
Well, that explains everything.
The traditional time for the President to initially speak to a Joint Session of Congress, otherwise known as The State of The Union, has always been in February.
So, why IS Biden finally getting around to it at the end of April?
Here’s my best answer:
This is on purpose.
As the above article noted, the Republicans in the House will all be back in their Home District, leaving Biden to face a very friendly audience. One who will stand up and cheer every stupid thing that he says.
This address has been purposefully scheduled that way because the President of the United States of America is a dementia-riddled doddering old fool who is being “handled” like a marionette by members of the Obama Administration, including Valerie Jarrett, Susan Rice, and Barack Hussein Obama, himself (mm mmm mmmm).
Biden is in such bad shape that they had to send Kamala Harris to meet with the Japanese Prime Minister when he came to Washington last week.
The Republican Members of the House know what is going on.
The Democrats are pulling a power play, trying to make the Republicans look bad by choosing to stay home instead of jumping and running back to D.C. to hear Biden spout off about a bunch of far Left Unconstitutional Bills, Programs, and Executive Orders designed to send this Constitutional Republic right into the Communist Crapper (Yeah, I said it!).
I would not come, either,
Talk about questionable timing..
The timing stinks on ice, just like the whole “Biden-Harris Administration” does.
Oh, and “Miss Lindsey”, Hunter’s Dad was never a good man.
He has been a Washington Swamp Creature for 50 years and he is not about to change now.
And, you just showed your true colors.
All show and no go.

As the title above says, this is the 4,000th blog that I’ve written on this website.
I’ve been involved in watching the news and observing politics ever since college, when I was named the News Director of my campus radio station, back in 1978. I was on the air when John Lennon was shot and went live with the story.
I cast my very 1st vote in 1980 for Ronald Wilson Reagan.
In 1988, I began listening to Rush Hudson Limbaugh on our local talk radio station in the Memphis area. I was fascinated by what I was hearing. Here was a guy from Cape Girardeau, Missouri who was saying everything that I believed in over my car radio.
In April of 2010, after spending some time in the comments section of hotair.com with a lot of average Americans just like me who became my social media friends and fans, I decided to start a daily blog in which I covered everything from a Christian American Conservative point of view.
Over the years, I’ve been able to satisfy my quest for knowledge and vent over the political affairs of the day in a manner which has actually been read by thousands of people.
According to WordPress, my blog has been read by people from all over the world. And that my friends, is a great honor.
All that being said, please allow me to speak to you about our country and the State of the Union.
The state of the Union is strong.
The Democrats in charge of our country are a bunch of fascists
The first thing they did after assuming power was to put a fence around the Capitol Building and the White House in order to keep us from holding them accountable for the passage of laws and executive orders which the overwhelming majority of average Americans would not and do not agree with.
Just like when Vladimir Lenin and the Bolsheviks took over Russia, the Democrats installed a vacillating, incompetent figurehead in Joe Biden to take a seat in the Oval Office, preceded by great men whom he cannot possibly measure up to in his diminished state.
I give Biden less than a year, as he is visibly getting worse and worse as he battles dementia.
His puppetmasters, whom I believe to be Barack Hussein Obama, Valerie Jarrett, and Susan rise, will not be able to maintain their illusion of Biden being a working president for long, even speaking in the air piece which he constantly wears
So, who does that leave us as our president?
Vice-President Kamala “Heels Up” Harris, whose only qualification for the office is the fact that she can kick her legs up higher…and wider… than any president before her.
Yeah… I said it.
Would you like to hear some good news?
The overwhelming majority of average Americans still believe in the traditional Faith and Values System of our fathers and forefathers. We still love God, our family, and our country.
The Democrats know this. That is another reason why they have built a fence around Washington. They are scared of us. And, rightfully so.
Today, at 2:30 p.m. Central, at the annual CPAC Convention, being held in sunny Florida, Former President Donald J. Trump is going to deliver a stemwinder of a speech in which he will lay the future of our nation out for us. He is going to continue to fight for us.
Trump is going to outline a strategy by which we will take back the House, the Senate, and the Presidency. Before he’s done speaking today, the bureaucrats in Washington, D.C., the Democrats on Capitol Hill, and their minions in the Main Stream Media are going to wet their pants and need to find safe spaces.
In conclusion, I believe that our forefathers provided an example which we should follow over the next 4 years. After enduring persecution for generations, they loaded their families into sailing ships and set out across the Atlantic for months at a time to a new land filled with unknown peril. They did this so they could escape tyrannical despots and worship God as they pleased. Then the landed, they forged a new country out of the wilderness. A land which was destined to be the greatest country on the face of the Earth.
Over the next 4 years, as average Americans, it will be our job to fight to preserve this country…to fulfil the vision of our forefathers through strength, courage, love, and a reverence for the Creator who gave us this Sacred Land and our Founding Documents to guide us.
It won’t be easy. Doing the right thing never is.
I can and will promise you one thing :
I will keep writing…
Until He Comes,
So, here we are….Superbowl Sunday.
A day that once meant a great deal to a lot of Americans out here in America’s Heartland.
This year…not so much.
After a couple of years of disrespect toward our National Anthem, our flag, our Brightest and Best, and the Men and Women in Blue who keep our municipalities safe featured prominently in NFL Games, the NFL Players Association and Roger Goodell have accomplished something that I would once upon a time have thought to have been impossible: taken the luster off of Superbowl Sunday.
But, it is not just the athletes and Commissioner of the NFL who have shown their backsides to average Americans.
Last Tuesday night, during Donald J. Trumps first State of the Union Address, Democratic Congress men and women, like a bunch of petulant, ungrateful children, sat on their hands when President Trump reminded those in attendance and those watching across the nation that our country’s motto is “In God We Trust”.
Evidently the Democrats’ seething hatred for our 45th President blinded them to the fact that 75% of America’s population are indeed Christians who place the Almighty about ALL, including Democratic Congresscritters.
For what now seems like an eternity, those on the Left side (along with some of those who claim to be on the Right Side) of the Political Aisle, led by Former President Barack Hussein Obama, have focused their attention on “radically changing” America.
They soon realized that they simply could not do it through popular culture and educational indoctrination, inundating America’s children with both overt and subliminal imaging designed to countermand the Traditional American Values that they were being raised with, in normal American Households, out here in “Flyover Country”, otherwise known as America’s Heartland…or “the Red States”.
Modern Liberals soon figured out that the way to program Americans into believing that “all paths lead to God” and that cradle-to-grave Nanny-State Government were the new American Standards for living our daily lives, was to turn Christian American Houses of Worship away from being instructors of the Word of God and a sanctuary in which to worship Our Creator, to, instead, being purveyors of the joys of Popular Culture. Wednesday Night Bible Studies were soon replaced by Yoga Classes and Encounter Groups. Religious Leaders were soon quoting philosophy, instead of the Bible in their Sunday Morning Sermons.
And, instead of taking a stand against those things of the world which were directly opposed to what is found in God’s Word, these “new, enlightened” churches started standing up for the “right” of a woman to have her baby prematurely yanked out of her womb with a set of tongs, standing up for the right of Adam to “marry” Steve, when the Bible states that marriage is between a man and a woman, and standing up for the equality of all faiths, when the Son of God firmly states, in John 14:6, that
I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
So, when is all this Christianity in America going to “fade away” as predicted by “the Smartest People in the Room”?
As polls have shown…not any time soon.
America remains a nation whose population consists of 70-75%, who proclaim Jesus Christ as their Personal Savior and 92%, who believe in God.
However, if you read some of the comments posted on Conservative Websites and Facebook Political Pages, by self-appointed “pundits”, you would think that Christian Americans are the minority in this nation.
I can testify from personal experience, having caught flack for sticking to my Christian American Conservative Principles, since beginning my daily posts on this blog in April of 2010.
My posts, concerning American Christianity, seem to “touch a nerve” in both Liberals and Atheists, alike. (But, in at least some cases, I repeat myself.)
Their reaction has hardly been unexpected.
Of course, one of the Hot Button Issues, which those Liberals and Atheists who responded, over the years, immediately denied, was that our Founding Fathers were Christians and that our country was founded on a Judeo-Christian Belief System.
Evidently, they had never read anything, except what their like-minded, non-believing soothsayers, allowed them to. Or else, they would have read historical documents like President George Washington’s Thanksgiving Day Proclamation, written on November 1, 1777, and found at wallbuilders.com:
The committee appointed to prepare a recommendation to the several states, to set apart a day of public thanksgiving, brought in a report; which was taken into consideration, and agreed to as follows:
Forasmuch as it is the indispensable duty of all men to adore the superintending providence of Almighty God; to acknowledge with gratitude their obligation to him for benefits received, and to implore such farther blessings as they stand in need of; and it having pleased him in his abundant mercy not only to continue to us the innumerable bounties of his common providence, but also smile upon us in the prosecution of a just and necessary war, for the defense and establishment of our unalienable rights and liberties; particularly in that he hath been pleased in so great a measure to prosper the means used for the support of our troops and to crown our arms with most signal success:
It is therefore recommended to the legislative or executive powers of these United States, to set apart Thursday, the 18th day of December next, for solemn thanksgiving and praise; that with one heart and one voice the good people may express the grateful feelings of their hearts, and consecrate themselves to the service of their divine benefactor; and that together with their sincere acknowledgments and offerings, they may join the penitent confession of their manifold sins, whereby they had forfeited every favor, and their humble and earnest supplication that it may please God, through the merits of Jesus Christ, mercifully to forgive and blot them out of remembrance; that it may please him graciously to afford his blessings on the governments of these states respectively, and prosper the public council of the whole; to inspire our commanders both by land and sea, and all under them, with that wisdom and fortitude which may render them fit instruments, under the providence of Almighty God, to secure for these United States the greatest of all blessings, independence and peace; that it may please him to prosper the trade and manufactures of the people and the labor of the husbandman, that our land may yield its increase; to take schools and seminaries of education, so necessary for cultivating the principles of true liberty, virtue and piety, under his nurturing hand, and to prosper the means of religion for the promotion and enlargement of that kingdom which consisteth in righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.
And it is further recommended, that servile labor, and such recreation as, though at other times innocent, may be unbecoming the purpose of this appointment, be omitted on so solemn an occasion.
Of course, the Poster Boy for the claim by Liberal/Atheist responders, concerning the Founders’ lack of Christianity, is Thomas Jefferson.
Atheists like to bring up the fact that he wrote a version of the Bible which left out Christ’s miracles. What they are reluctant to do, though, is explain why he wrote his book that way. David Barton explains on wallbuilders.com:
The reader [of a newspaper article which Barton is replying to], as do many others, claimed that Jefferson omitted all miraculous events of Jesus from his “Bible.” Rarely do those who make this claim let Jefferson speak for himself. Jefferson’s own words explain that his intent for that book was not for it to be a “Bible,” but rather for it to be a primer for the Indians on the teachings of Christ (which is why Jefferson titled that work, “The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth”). What Jefferson did was to take the “red letter” portions of the New Testament and publish these teachings in order to introduce the Indians to Christian morality. And as President of the United States, Jefferson signed a treaty with the Kaskaskia tribe wherein he provided—at the government’s expense—Christian missionaries to the Indians. In fact, Jefferson himself declared, “I am a real Christian, that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus.” While many might question this claim, the fact remains that Jefferson called himself a Christian, not a deist.
Atheist Activists and young and/or misinformed Liberals and self-proclaimed “Libertarians” (but, in a lot of cases, I repeat myself), who reply to my posts, insist that Crosses and other Christian symbols have no place in the Public Square.
Relying on Far Left Ideologues or their own opinion as their “highest authority”, they continue their push to eliminate the practice of American Christianity and the Traditional American Morality and Ethics which go with it from Everyday American Life, attempting to regulate Christians’ role in American Society as remaining unseen and unheard from, worshiping in private, on Sunday mornings, only.
Or, as Actor and Professional Wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson would say, Obama and his minions want American Christians to
Sit down, shut up, and know your role!
Unfortunately for them, our Current President Donald J. Trump reinforced our rights as American s to our Faith with an Executive Order early in his Presidency.
The First Amendment to the Constitution still holds.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Being filled with human beings, America’s churches have made a lot of mistakes, However, they have also done a lot of good in the Name of the Lord.
For example, the church I attend, houses a Food Pantry, operated in co-operation with other churches in our area, which feeds 2,000 people per month, counseling them, and getting them the assistance that they need.
Churches today have to walk a fine line.
The spiritual battle raging between the influence of American Popular Culture and those seeking the Will of God in their lives, takes all the strength…and prayer, that Christians can muster.
Modern Liberals seem to have great difficulty comprehending the role which Our Creator, the God of Abraham, played and plays in this Grand Experiment, known as the United States of America.
Why have Liberals ratcheted up their anti-Christian Vitriol and Negativity since January 21, 2009?
Why are they so focused on removing America’s Christian Heritage?
Well, as is usually my wont, I have been doing some “reckoning” about this.
It seems to this ol’ Southern Boy, living here in the Heartland, that America’s Christian Heritage and the very real fact of His influence in building and shaping America’s growth into the greatest country on the face of God’s Green Earth, not only stifles and interferes with Modern Liberals’ “anything goes”, “share the wealth”, “hive-mind”, “man is his own god” Political Ideology, but the reality of God’s very existence, somewhere deep in their miserable, bitter psyches, scares the mess out of them.
Why else would they be trying so hard to fight against the influence of Someone Whom they really don’t believe in?
And, a second and final thought occurred to me while watching the Far Left Democrats refuse to acknowledge God and the solid points which President Trump made pertaining to Traditional American Values last Tuesday night…
That is why the Democrats lost on November 8, 2016 and while they will continue to lose in the future.
The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds; there is none who does good. – Psalms 14:1
Until He Comes,
“We want every American to know the dignity of a hard day’s work; we want every child to be safe in their home at night, and we want every citizen to be proud of this land that we love.” – President Donald J. Trump – 2017 State of the Union Address
Last night, as my bride and I arrived home from our Tuesday Night Church Small Group Fellowship, we immediately turned on Fox News to watch the 45th President of the United States of America deliver his State of the Union Address.
FoxNews.com posted the following summary of the address…
President Trump kicked off his first State of the Union address to Congress on Tuesday night by calling on lawmakers of both parties to “set aside our differences” in the combative political environment and work together in “unity.”
“Tonight, I call upon all of us to set aside our differences, to seek out common ground, and to summon the unity we need to deliver for the people we were elected to serve,” the president said.
The president used his hour-long speech to extend an olive branch to his critics and signal a willingness to make bipartisan deals on second-year-agenda priorities like immigration and infrastructure.
“We all share the same home, the same heart, the same destiny, and the same great American flag,” he said. “Together, we are rediscovering the American way.”
He began his speech by praising heroes during natural disasters and tragedies over the last year, including during the summer shooting of Republican lawmakers at a baseball practice.
“With us tonight is one of the toughest people ever to serve in this House — a guy who took a bullet, almost died, and was back to work three and a half months later: the legend from Louisiana, Congressman Steve Scalise,” Trump said.
Like other presidents before him, Trump used the address to tout first-year accomplishments like “massive tax cuts,” regulation rollbacks, the elimination of ObamaCare’s individual mandate and more.
“This is our new American moment,” Trump said. “There has never been a better time to start living the American dream.”
Trump also seemed to criticize the protests by NFL football players who have been kneeling during the national anthem as a protest against police shootings of African-Americans.
He praised Preston Sharp, a 12-year-old boy from California, who started a movement to place flags at the graves of fallen service members.
“Preston’s reverence for those who have served our nation reminds us why we salute our flag, why we put our hands on our hearts for the pledge of allegiance, and why we proudly stand for the national anthem,” he said.
On immigration, the White House is pushing a plan to broaden eligibility for the DACA program – which gives a reprieve to illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children, and which Trump is planning to end absent a legislative solution – in exchange for border wall funding and other big changes. The negotiations could be critical for talks to keep the government running past a Feb. 8 deadline.
The president extended an “open hand” to members of both parties to “protect our citizens, of every background, color, and creed,” in an apparent reference to DACA and immigration talks.
Further, he calls for bipartisan cooperation on infrastructure: “America is a nation of builders. We built the Empire State Building in just 1 year — is it not a disgrace that it can now take 10 years just to get a permit approved for a simple road?”
President Trump went on to speak about other subjects, such as Religious Liberty and South Korea.
When I sat down to write this post last night, I first read Politico.com’s summary of the SOTU. What they wrote was nothing like what I watched on my television last night.
They said that President Trump delivered what was supposed to be an optimistic speech in a voice filled with sadness and anger.
Funny. That’s not what I saw.
I saw an American President doing what he does best: speaking in clear, concise tones, expressing optimism, a genuine concern for and love of America and its Citizens.
While on the outside , Trump remains the bombastic American Businessman and Citizen Statesman that average Americans grew to love during the campaign, on the inside, he is a thoughtful compassionate leader who cares very deeply about the American people and those who are protecting us from our enemies, giving up their very lives in order to secure our American Freedom.
Unlike Obama, Trump does not view our Brightest and Best as Lab Rats to be used in Social Experimentation. He views them as our sons and daughter to be respected, honored, cherished, and solemnly and respectfully honored and remembered when they give their lives for a flag which some think nothing of defiling.
President Trump was at his best last night, presenting American Heroes and one very special South Korean Hero, who escaped from the North and who is now fighting to free his people from the ruthless dictatorship of Kim Jong Un.
As I was watching our 45th President, Donald J. Trump (man, that feels good to write!), deliver his First State of the Union Address, several things struck me.
He referenced the God of Abraham, Our Creator, several times, even reminded those in the Chamber with him “In God We Trust”.
Unlike Obama, he did not make the speech all about him.
He made a point of saying that when we are together as a nation, we can do ANYTHING.
He spoke in glowing positive terms about America and its people.
He acknowledged those who protect us: The Men and Women in Blue and our Brightest and best.
He pledged to end the VISA Lottery System and Chain Migration in order to keep America safe from those who wish us harm.
He reminded those in the Chamber that “Americans are Dreamers, too”.
He told us average “forgotten” Americans that we will be able to keep more of our paychecks and THAT WE MATTER.
He mentioned that unemployment is down and that Black and Hispanic Unemployment are at record lows.
He emphatically stated that because of the sacrifices made for us by those who have died while protecting our freedom, we stand and put our hand over our hearts for the National Anthem.
And while President Trump was making this stirring speech, where were the Democrats?
Sitting on their hands and appearing as if their dog had been run over by a Steamroller.
Last night proved two things:
Americans made the right choice on November 8, 2016.
And, the Democratic Party stands for nothing…except hating President Donald J. Trump and Traditional American Values
Until He Comes,
Courtesy of USAToday.com, here are some excerpts from last night’s :
“We are fifteen years into this new century. Fifteen years that dawned with terror touching our shores; that unfolded with a new generation fighting two long and costly wars; that saw a vicious recession spread across our nation and the world. It has been, and still is, a hard time for many.
But tonight, we turn the page.”
“At this moment — with a growing economy, shrinking deficits, bustling industry, and booming energy production — we have risen from recession freer to write our own future than any other nation on Earth. It’s now up to us to choose who we want to be over the next fifteen years, and for decades to come.
Will we accept an economy where only a few of us do spectacularly well? Or will we commit ourselves to an economy that generates rising incomes and chances for everyone who makes the effort?”
“So the verdict is clear. Middle-class economics works. Expanding opportunity works. And these policies will continue to work, as long as politics don’t get in the way.”
“In fact, at every moment of economic change throughout our history, this country has taken bold action to adapt to new circumstances, and to make sure everyone gets a fair shot. We set up worker protections, Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid to protect ourselves from the harshest adversity. We gave our citizens schools and colleges, infrastructure and the internet — tools they needed to go as far as their effort will take them.
“That’s what middle-class economics is — the idea that this country does best when everyone gets their fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same set of rules.”
“I believe in a smarter kind of American leadership. We lead best when we combine military power with strong diplomacy; when we leverage our power with coalition building; when we don’t let our fears blind us to the opportunities that this new century presents. That’s exactly what we’re doing right now — and around the globe, it is making a difference.”
“In Iraq and Syria, American leadership — including our military power — is stopping ISIL’s advance. Instead of getting dragged into another ground war in the Middle East, we are leading a broad coalition, including Arab nations, to degrade and ultimately destroy this terrorist group. We’re also supporting a moderate opposition in Syria that can help us in this effort, and assisting people everywhere who stand up to the bankrupt ideology of violent extremism. This effort will take time. It will require focus. But we will succeed. And tonight, I call on this Congress to show the world that we are united in this mission by passing a resolution to authorize the use of force against ISIL.”
“No foreign nation, no hacker, should be able to shut down our networks, steal our trade secrets, or invade the privacy of American families, especially our kids. We are making sure our government integrates intelligence to combat cyber threats, just as we have done to combat terrorism. And tonight, I urge this Congress to finally pass the legislation we need to better meet the evolving threat of cyber-attacks, combat identity theft, and protect our children’s information. If we don’t act, we’ll leave our nation and our economy vulnerable. If we do, we can continue to protect the technologies that have unleashed untold opportunities for people around the globe.”
B.S. ad infinitum. Forget the shoes. Save the watch.
As an asthmatic child, I was sick…a lot. I found an escape from my condition in the world of comic books.
My favorite comic book hero was Superman. He fought for Truth, Justice, and the American Way. He went about doing good.
One of Superman’s biggest foes was Bizarro, a Superman created in his image, who turned out to be the exact opposite of Superman. In fact, the entire world that this character lived on was bizarre…just like whatever planet that Barack Hussein Obama is currently living on.
…Because he sure isn’t living on this one.
As I wrote yesterday, all of Obama’s Domestic Policies have failed spectacularly.
37.2% of America’s Workforce…are no longer in it.
Obama attempt to cram Marxist Economic Theory down our throats still tastes as sour as when he told Joe the Plumber that “spreading the wealth around is good for everybody”.
This failed president still insists that Socialism will work here, despite the fact that it has failed everywhere else that it has been tried.
His Foreign Policy has been a disaster.
ISIS is laughing in his face. Iran continues its “Nuclear Enrichment Program”. And, just yesterday, Muslim Terrorists invaded the Palace in Yemen’s Capital.
“A smarter kind of leadership”, my hindquarters.
Concerning the Internet, Obama and his minions don’t want to protect our FREEDOM, they want to LIMIT IT.
After all, no one should insult the name of the Prophet…or Obama.
Obama’s incompetency, accompanied by his undeserved arrogant aloofness, has finally started to hit home with even his most ardent supporters.
His dwindling cadre of supporters will continue to make excuses for Obama’s failures, but nobody’s buying it, here or abroad. Obama has stubbornly set himself on his own flight path and, after the Political Massacre of the November Mid-Term Election, the next two years promises to be the longest kamikaze flight on record.
One could possibly use the Peter Principle to describe this Manchurian President.
The Peter Principle is a theory that proposes that, as people rise in a hierarchy, they eventually rise to their level of incompetence.
However, that does not apply in the case of President Barack Hussein Obama.
He started out unvetted and incompetent.
Now, he’s become a disaster.
Until He Comes,
Tonight, the 44th President of the United States of America (all 57 of them), Barack Hussein Obama, will stand before a Joint Session of Congress, , and deliver a speech rife with the Rhetoric of Class Warfare and Racial Animus.
Marx, Lenin, and Alinsky would be so proud.
Don’t eat a heavy supper.
Do you remember when Barack Hussein Obama first burst onto the scene? It was during the 2004 Democratic National Convention. Here was this young Senator from the state of Illinois, who received the opportunity of a lifetime, to be one of the main speakers at the convention.
Meticulously prepared by his handlers, when the young senator took the stage, you would have thought it was the second coming of Elvis.
George Soros, David Axelrod ,and all of the powers behind the scenes in the Democratic Party made sure that the Main Stream Media would trumpet the triumphant arrival of their next “Golden Boy”, a charismatic individual who would carry the Democrat Party on his back in their quest to reclaim the White House.
And sure enough, thanks to a propaganda campaign by the Main Stream Media and a Democrat ground game spearheaded by the illegal efforts of ACORN, America’s low information voters, desperately wanting to ride the wave of an event which they were told would be historic, the election of America’s first black president, elected instead, America’s first Anti-American president.
As our country quickly found out, we did not elect a world leader, we elected a community organizer.
One of his first actions, as a time-tested product of Chicago politics, was to repay those who got him elected bypassing the phony stimulus bill, which actually turned out to be nothing but a Pork-Laden, Graft-Riddled piece of Political Patronage.
Then, the Community Organizer-In-Chief set about to take over the finest healthcare system in the world.
He knew that he could not accomplish this by being honest, so instead he told the American public, that our National- run Healthcare System would be different from Canada’s and the United Kingdom’s, in which their citizens are subject to long waiting lines for needed operations or they are simply denied them. Obama told Americans that if “you like your doctor you can keep your doctor” and “if you like your health insurance you can keep your health insurance”.
To paraphrase Representative Joe Wilson, he lied.
And, because the launch of “Obamacare” turned out to be such an unmitigated disaster, Obama was forced to issue a bunch of Executive Orders, in an weak, and ultimately, failed, attempt to keep his fellow Democrats for being politically slaughtered in the Mid-Term Elections last November.
So much for Obama’s failed Domestic Policy.
Next, let us focus on Obama’s Foreign Policy, shall we?
From the moment, Obama announced the appointment of his Democratic Primary Opponent, Hillary Rodham Clinton, to be his Secretary of State, Americans felt a prophetic shiver go up their spine.
The Former First Lady had about as much experience in foreign affairs as Michelle Obama has in pushing away from a buffet table.
Obama and Clinton decided to call their Foreign Policy Initiative “Smart Power”.
Unfortunately, for our nation’s safety, it has turned out to be anything but “smart” or “powerful”.
Obama’s failure at Foreign Policy has led to the entire Middle East being consumed by the Bonfire of The Vanities, known as “Arab Spring” in which Moderate Muslims dictators were replaced by Radical Muslim Dictators.
Additionally, during this Arab Spring, on the anniversary of the worst terrorist attack on American soil in history, 4 brave American,s including our ambassador, were slaughtered at the US Embassy Compound in Benghazi, Libya.
No effort to save them that night was made by the Obama administration.
And, the “Leader of the Free World”, blamed a Youtube Video for “stirring up” “peaceful Muslims”.
Since then, Obama has made threats and has drawn red lines in the desert sand in an attempt to show the world that he is a powerful leader.
Unfortunately for our safety as nation, Obama’s Fantasyland view of the world, which is not unlike the old Coca Cola Advertisement where everyone had a Coke and a smile, set him up to be a disastrous failure at Foreign Policy.
Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm), the 44th President of these United States, has a problem.
(No, I don’t mean his overbearing wife, Mooch, and her desire to build shopping carts, which will tell us what “healthy” foods to buy. That’s a subject for another blog. Besides, it takes that heifer two rips to haul a.. …well, you know.)
Obama’s problem is one of MISPLACED PRIORITIES.
This problem started the very first time he took the Oath of Office, which clearly outlines his duties as President of the United States of America…
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.
Let’s examine the President’s MISPLACED PRIORITIES by using the three words which I underlined in the Oath of Office as topic headings, shall we?
To begin with, let’s examine the word PRESERVE.
It is a conflict of interest to swear to “preserve” a country which you have already promised to “radically change”.
As we have discovered, since Obama’s First Inauguration, all those long years ago, Obama has no intention of “preserving” the Land of our Founding Fathers and of hard-working Patriotic Americans, who sacrificed so much, for this Shining City Upon a Hill.
Yes, Mrs. Obama. Those before us, sacrificed “All this for a flag.”
Then, there is Obama’s Domestic Policy, in keeping with his promise to “radically change” this country, which has resulted in 92,000,000 Americans “dropping out” of our Work Force, because they cannot find meaningful jobs in a stagnant economy, controlled by a huge all-powerful Central Government, who rewards the slackers, by giving them FREE STUFF from cradle to grave and punishes those Entrepreneurial Americans who actually hire Americans,with onerous tax burdens, stifling competitiveness and creativity, literally bringing to a halt America’s Engine of Economic Growth.
And, finally, under this “PRESERVE” heading, there is Obama and his Administration’s misplaced priority of establishing a “Tyranny of the Minority”, when it comes to imposing the immorality and situational ethics of a very small minority of Americans on the overwhelming majority of the rest of us, through the use of “Push Polls” perpetuated by the sycophantic Main Stream Media and Liberal Activist Judges, whose sole purpose is to further Obama’s original promise to “radically change” our country, including the definition of a word which has meant the same thing for thousands of years.
Next, Obama swore an oath to PROTECT America.
Obama started his presidency by bowing in front of America’s enemies, during his World Apology Tour.
No President of the United States has every effectively protected our nation from a POSITION OF WEAKNESS.
Ask Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, whose milksop endeavors in Foreign Policy led to increased attacks by the Radical Adherents of the “Religion of Peace’, otherwise known as Muslim Terrorism, or as Obama’s staff immediately renamed these wanton acts of violence, “Man-caused Disasters”.
Also, how can you “protect” a nation whose Southern Border is WIDE OPEN, presently allowing entrance to our Sovereign Nation by our enemies and virulent disease, alike?
By allowing the present Illegal Alien Invasion, Obama is saying to the world,
Hey, C’mon in! Our Estados Unidos es tu Estados Unidos! Sit a spell. Unstrap your sidearm. Take us over.
And, that leads us to our final topic heading, DEFEND.
How can the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave be defended by a President and his Administration who are so naive that they actually believe that they can effectively defend our Sovereign Nation by cutting down our Military to pre-World War II Levels?
Our soldiers were recently being handed their “pink slips” in the field. (And, no, I am not talking about the repeal of DADT.) Our Brightest and Best are receiving “Termination Notices” while on Active Duty).
I realize that I could have grown this Blog exponentially, by listing all of Obama’s MISPLACED PRIORITIES en masse.
However, I believe that simplicity in communication is the best way to get one’s point across.
The point I have been attempting to make today, is a rather simplistic one, in deference to the Liberals whom I know read this blog on a daily basis, attempting to catch me in some sort of “lie”, which only they can see.
Obama’s MISPLACED PRIORITIES have not only tarnished this Shining City Upon a Hill, but it has endangered the continued existence of America and her citizens, with every day this past week, bringing a new example of Obama’s deliberate ineptness and shallow behavior, in the poor fulfillment of his Oath of Office, to the degree to which average Americans are concerned about their children’s’ and grandchildren’s future.
Obama has failed miserably in his sworn duties as President of the United States.
But, then again, perhaps the only promise he intended to keep, was to “radically change” America.
…for the worse.
God protect us.
Until He Comes,
Every point in Obama’s Socialist Playbook was rehashed over and over again, with a threat thrown in by the Lightbringer that, if he doesn’t get his way, by Congress passing every thing that he wants them to, he “has a pen”…meaning he will go around them and rule by diktat. That is, he will write Executive Orders, a Presidential Version of having a Temper Tantrum., i.e., lashing out, because he did not get his way.
Obama literally reiterated every single failed Political Strategy of his Administration so far, somehow thinking, if he focused attention on them, once again, they would magically be universally accepted by the American Public, while his Popularity Polls continue to reflect the harsh reality of his failed Presidency.
Proclaiming 2014 as a “Year of Action”, the Prevaricator in Chief declared that
America does not stand still…and neither will I.
Which explains why nobody has nailed him with Impeachment, yet. He’s a moving target.
Obama, as he always does, made the address about him, how wonderful he is, and what a tireless worker he has been as President.
As President, I’m committed to making Washington work better, and rebuilding the trust of the people who sent us here. I believe most of you are, too. Last month, thanks to the work of Democrats and Republicans, this Congress finally produced a budget that undoes some of last year’s severe cuts to priorities like education. Nobody got everything they wanted, and we can still do more to invest in this country’s future while bringing down our deficit in a balanced way. But the budget compromise should leave us freer to focus on creating new jobs, not creating new crises.
In the coming months, let’s see where else we can make progress together. Let’s make this a year of action. That’s what most Americans want – for all of us in this chamber to focus on their lives, their hopes, their aspirations. And what I believe unites the people of this nation, regardless of race or region or party, young or old, rich or poor, is the simple, profound belief in opportunity for all – the notion that if you work hard and take responsibility, you can get ahead.
Let’s face it: that belief has suffered some serious blows. Over more than three decades, even before the Great Recession hit, massive shifts in technology and global competition had eliminated a lot of good, middle-class jobs, and weakened the economic foundations that families depend on.
Today, after four years of economic growth, corporate profits and stock prices have rarely been higher, and those at the top have never done better. But average wages have barely budged. Inequality has deepened. Upward mobility has stalled. The cold, hard fact is that even in the midst of recovery, too many Americans are working more than ever just to get by – let alone get ahead. And too many still aren’t working at all.
Economic Growth? Step away from the bong, Mr. President. You and the family taking a taxpayer-funded vacation every month is not “Economic Growth”. Although, the entourage you take with you, do all have to be paid.
Obama concluded his Soviet Soliloquy last night with these words:
…Our freedom, our democracy, has never been easy. Sometimes we stumble; we make mistakes; we get frustrated or discouraged. But for more than two hundred years, we have put those things aside and placed our collective shoulder to the wheel of progress – to create and build and expand the possibilities of individual achievement; to free other nations from tyranny and fear; to promote justice, and fairness, and equality under the law, so that the words set to paper by our founders are made real for every citizen. The America we want for our kids – a rising America where honest work is plentiful and communities are strong; where prosperity is widely shared and opportunity for all lets us go as far as our dreams and toil will take us – none of it is easy. But if we work together; if we summon what is best in us, with our feet planted firmly in today but our eyes cast towards tomorrow – I know it’s within our reach.
I purposefully underlined the key phrase in Obama’s State of the Union Address.
He views our Constitutional Republic as a “collective”, a term which leaders in Communist countries used to refer to a farm created by pooling together a number of small holdings. In other words. smaller farms were absorbed by the Central Government, forcing their owners to work together, not for their own individual achievement, but, rather, for the glory of the State.Obama, like other Marxists (Yeah, I said it.) envisions a society where “fairness and equality” means that any “individual achievement” is sublimated and absorbed in order to grow the Central Government, “for the good of the people”.
To this end, Obama has been whining about “Income Inequality” for quite a while now. Only, until recently, he called it “spreading the wealth”.
On a Sunday, in October of 2008, outside of Toledo, Ohio, Democratic Presidential Nominee Obama met a plumber named Joe Wurzelbacher. Joe, who owned his own plumbing company, dared to ask Obama about his proposed tax hikes. In fact, he told Obama that he did not want to pay higher taxes, he was already paying enough. Obama told him,
Now, I respect the disagreement. I just want you to be clear – it’s not that I want to punish your success – I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you – that they’ve got a chance at success too.”
…I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.
When Obama promised to “radically change” America, this is exactly what he meant:
- The Redistribution of Wealth
- The Indoctrination of Our Children, starting with the conception of a National Preschool Program
- The replacement of the Traditional Family Unit by “a new kind of family”, i.e., “marriage equality”, in which parenting duties are handled by The State.
- The weakening of our military, through using them as lab rats in Social Engineering Experiments and restricting them in battle
- The bypassing of our System of Checks and Balances, whereby “Supreme Power” is wielded by the Executive Branch, i.e., “Dear Leader”
Now, 5 years later, he is still trying to make his vision, reality.
By any means necessary.
Until He Comes,
To say that ol’ Scooter has fallen just a wee bit short of that promise, is like saying that the Titanic hit an ice-cube.
On Saturday, August 8, 2009, during his Weekly Address, “The Smartest Guy in the Room” said,
As we draw close to finalizing – and passing – real health insurance reform, the defenders of the status quo and political point-scorers in Washington are growing fiercer in their opposition. In recent days and weeks, some have been using misleading information to defeat what they know is the best chance of reform we have ever had. That is why it is important, especially now, as Senators and Representatives head home and meet with their constituents, for you, the American people, to have all the facts.
So, let me explain what reform will mean for you. And let me start by dispelling the outlandish rumors that reform will promote euthanasia, cut Medicaid, or bring about a government takeover of health care. That’s simply not true. This isn’t about putting government in charge of your health insurance; it’s about putting you in charge of your health insurance. Under the reforms we seek, if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.
And while reform is obviously essential for the 46 million Americans who don’t have health insurance, it will also provide more stability and security to the hundreds of millions who do. Right now, we have a system that works well for the insurance industry, but that doesn’t always work well for you. What we need, and what we will have when we pass health insurance reform, are consumer protections to make sure that those who have insurance are treated fairly and that insurance companies are held accountable.
Remember what happened a month after that, on September 9, 2009, during President Barack Hussein Obama’s very first State of the Union Speech?
On September 10, 2009, CNN.com reported the following:
A Republican House member shouted, “You lie” during President Obama’s health care speech to Congress on Wednesday, and members of both parties condemned the heckling.
After the speech, South Carolina Rep. Joe Wilson issued a statement apologizing for his outburst.
“This evening, I let my emotions get the best of me when listening to the president’s remarks regarding the coverage of illegal immigrants in the health care bill,” the statement said. “While I disagree with the president’s statement, my comments were inappropriate and regrettable. I extend sincere apologies to the president for this lack of civility.”
Wilson also called the White House to apologize and spoke with Obama’s Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, who accepted the apology on the president’s behalf, according to a senior administration official.
“We can disagree without being disagreeable,” Emanuel said to Wilson, according to the official. “That was the point of the president’s speech.”
The outburst came when Obama denied that proposed health care legislation would provide free health coverage for illegal immigrants. Immediately, Wilson shouted, “You lie!”
The outburst caused Obama to stop and look toward the heckler. “That’s not true,” the president responded.
Hotair.com reported the following on August 28, 2009:
In what he called the “first myth” being spread by critics of his proposal for a government-run health care system, Obama said they are wrong in claiming illegal immigrants will be covered: “That is not true. Illegal immigrants would not be covered. That idea has not even been on the table.” Obama said.
Well, Mr. President, that idea must have been tucked under a stack of background briefing papers over there in the corner of the table because the Congressional Research Service (CRS) says this about H.R. 3200, the Obamacare bill approved just before the recess by the House Energy and Commerce Committee chaired by Rep. Henry Waxman, D-CA:
“Under H.R. 3200, a ‘Health Insurance Exchange’ would begin operation in 2013 and would offer private plans alongside a public option…H.R. 3200 does not contain any restrictions on noncitzens—whether legally or illegally present, or in the United States temporarily or permanently—participating in the Exchange.”
So you see, gentle reader, Joe Wilson was exactly right. Although he, like the rest of the nation, had no idea to what extent Obama did and would lie to all of us.
Last night NBC News reported that
President Obama repeatedly assured Americans that after the Affordable Care Act became law, people who liked their health insurance would be able to keep it. But millions of Americans are getting or are about to get cancellation letters for their health insurance under Obamacare, say experts, and the Obama administration has known that for at least three years.
Four sources deeply involved in the Affordable Care Act tell NBC NEWS that 50 to 75 percent of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a “cancellation” letter or the equivalent over the next year because their existing policies don’t meet the standards mandated by the new health care law. One expert predicts that number could reach as high as 80 percent. And all say that many of those forced to buy pricier new policies will experience “sticker shock.”
None of this should come as a shock to the Obama administration. The law states that policies in effect as of March 23, 2010 will be “grandfathered,” meaning consumers can keep those policies even though they don’t meet requirements of the new health care law. But the Department of Health and Human Services then wrote regulations that narrowed that provision, by saying that if any part of a policy was significantly changed since that date — the deductible, co-pay, or benefits, for example — the policy would not be grandfathered.
Buried in Obamacare regulations from July 2010 is an estimate that because of normal turnover in the individual insurance market, “40 to 67 percent” of customers will not be able to keep their policy. And because many policies will have been changed since the key date, “the percentage of individual market policies losing grandfather status in a given year exceeds the 40 to 67 percent range.”
That means the administration knew that more than 40 to 67 percent of those in the individual market would not be able to keep their plans, even if they liked them.
Yet President Obama, who had promised in 2009, “if you like your health plan, you will be able to keep your health plan,” was still saying in 2012, “If [you] already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance.”
How bad must evidence of the President’s duplicitous behavior, regarding his “Affordable Care Act” be, for the Vanguard of his Main Street Media Minions, NBC, to turn on him, in this manner?
Joe and Mika, from Morning Joe, must have headed to the nearest bar, when they heard that NBC was going to go public with Obama’s treachery.
First CBS’ 60 Minutes’ report on Benghazi. Now this.
Could the sniveling weasels in the MSM have come to the realization that, if they keep trying to cover for this Administration, they will go down with Obama’s Sinking Ship of State?
Is the MSM simply in Survival Mode, or are they distancing themselves, in order to be a viable force for the Democratic Party, with the purpose of saving them from a Political Massacre in the 2014 and 2016 Elections?
Either way, the MSM is quickly distancing themselves from the indefensible disaster known as Obamacare, like it is last call at the local pub, and the last one there has to pick up the check.
Until He Comes,
Last night, I took a big swig of Maalox, and proceeded to force myself to watch President Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) deliver what was possibly the worst, most divisive, most arrogant State of the Union Address of all time.
From the very start to the much anticipated end, the Prevaricator-in-chief wove a web of vagarities, exaggerations, and downright lies, that caused Goebbels, Lenin, and Marx to smile. They are extra crispy where they are…but, they still smiled.
Among the things he touched on, was, of course, increasing the Government’s “revenue”.
For those of you who are low-information voters, that means he wants to take more of YOUR take-home pay.
He went on to engage in more Class Warfare, speaking as if he wished to levy more taxes on America’s wealthiest citizens.
You remember them. They are the ones who hire you and me, so that we may provide for our families.
In fact, he even started channeling Franklin Delano Roosevelt, suggesting that we put Americans to work repairing our bridges and roads, essentially reviving the WPA.
If you were listening to ol’ Scooter last night, you grasped that he truly believes that a Government that intrudes into our lives from cradle-to-grave, is the answer for every single problem that our country faces.
The greatest President of my generation, Ronald Wilson Reagan, said,
Republicans believe every day is the Fourth of July, but the democrats believe every day is April 15.
Government’s first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives.
By burdening Americans with more taxes, Obama and the Democrats are intentionally stifling American Entrepreneurs and small businessmen, who are the backbone of our economy.
Obama wants our blessed country to be just another socialist nation.
Heck, last night, he even said that we should be like Rangoon!
Giving the GOP’s resonse last night, Senator Marco Rubio said,
This opportunity – to make it to the middle class or beyond no matter where you start out in life – it isn’t bestowed on us from Washington. It comes from a vibrant free economy where people can risk their own money to open a business. And when they succeed, they hire more people, who in turn invest or spend the money they make, helping others start a business and create jobs. Presidents in both parties – from John F. Kennedy to Ronald Reagan – have known that our free enterprise economy is the source of our middle class prosperity. But President Obama? He believes it’s the cause of our problems.
Obama touched on education last night.
He stated that he wants all 4 year olds to be in government-run pre-schools, where they will be fed full of socialist propaganda, and taught to shun good old-fashioned American morals and values.
He didn’t actually say that last part, but, that is exactly what will happen. Our children would be programmed. The State would be their Nanny.
He also stated that he wants to re-design America’s high schools.
Tell you what, Scooter…let’s start teaching American kids to read and write, first. Shall we?
Then, he moved to the two most important (to the Liberals) issues of the night: Amnesty (err…Path to Citizenship) and Gun Confiscation (errr…Gun Control).
Regarding making illegal immigrants American citizens, Obama said,
Real reform means strong border security, and we can build on the progress my administration’s already made, putting more boots on the southern border than at any time in our history and reducing illegal crossings to their lowest levels in 40 years. Real reform means establishing a responsible pathway to earned citizenship, a path that includes passing a background check, paying taxes and a meaningful penalty, learning English, and going to the back of the line behind the folks trying to come here legally.
Sounds fairly decent, right?
However, you and I both know that’s not what is going to happen. The Liberals will eventually attempt to push through some sort of blanket amnesty, before the Mid-term Elections, in order to manufacture a plethora of new Democratic Voters.
Then, came the most garish and inappropriate moment of the entire night. I thought I was viewing the late Paul Wellstone’s Funeral, all over again.
In their unfettered zeal to take away guns from law-abiding Americans, Obama, and Liberals from both sides of the aisles, invoked the memory of a precious young 15 year old girl from Obama’s hometown of Chicago, who was viciously killed by a bunch of gang-banging thugs. Here’s the transcript. I hope you haven’t eaten recently.
Of course, what I’ve said tonight matters little if we don’t come together to protect our most precious resource, our children. It has been two months since Newtown. I know this is not the first time this country has debated how to reduce gun violence, but this time is different. Overwhelming majorities of Americans — Americans who believe in the Second Amendment — have come together around commonsense reform, like background checks that will make it harder for criminals to get their hands on a gun. Senators…
Senators — senators of both parties are working together on tough new laws to prevent anyone from buying guns for resale to criminals. Police chiefs are asking our help to get weapons of war and massive ammunition magazines off our streets, because these police chiefs, they’re tired of seeing their guys and gals being outgunned. Each of these proposals deserves a vote in Congress.
If you want to vote no, that’s your choice. But these proposals deserve a vote, because in the two months since Newtown, more than a thousand birthdays, graduations, anniversaries have been stolen from our lives by a bullet from a gun. More than a thousand. One of those we lost was a young girl named Hadiya Pendleton. She was 15 years old. She loved Fig Newtons and lip gloss. She was a majorette.
She was so good to her friends, they all thought they were her best friend. Just three weeks ago, she was here, in Washington, with her classmates, performing for her country at my inauguration. And a week later, she was shot and killed in a Chicago park after school, just a mile away from my house. Hadiya’s parents, Nate and Cleo, are in this chamber tonight, along with more than two dozen Americans whose lives have been torn apart by gun violence. They deserve a vote.
They deserve a vote.
They deserve a vote.
Gabby Giffords deserves a vote.
The families of Newtown deserve a vote.
The families of Aurora deserve a vote.
The families of Oak Creek, and Tucson, and Blacksburg, and the countless other communities ripped open by gun violence, they deserve a simple vote.
They deserve — they deserve a simple vote. Our actions will not prevent every senseless act of violence in this country. In fact, no laws, no initiatives, no administrative acts will perfectly solve all of the challenges I’ve outlined tonight. But we were never sent here to be perfect.
(Dons Lt. Columbo’s raincoat, raises eyebrow and finger, and says,) Mr. President, may I ask a question of you, sir? How will taking away the guns of law-abidng citizens, stop low-life thugs and criminals from murdering another wonderful young person like Hadiya, or the little children in Newtown?
Answer: IT WON’T.
But, then again, that’s never the goal of a Socialist Government when they confiscate citizens’ guns. Is it?
Joe Wilson was right.
Until He comes,
This year, he is supposed to “be more aggressive”.
The Republicans are the ones keeping you down. They will not co-operate with my grand plan for turning the United States of America into just another Democratic Socialist Country. If they would just “shut up and know their roles”, I could finish my Socialist Utopia.
You can bet your bottom dollar that ol’ Scooter will be all over the place tonight, touching on a myriad of subjects, with all the phony sincerity he can muster.
He will probably put another tingle up Chris Matthew’s leg.
So, what happens if the Republicans actually grow a collective spine, and stand up to the Marxist plans of the Manchurian President?
No problem. He’s making a list…and checking it twice.
According to the George Soros-funded Liberal Website, ThinkProgress.org, the Prevaricator-in-Chief is contemplating bypassing our Constitutional System of Checks and Balances, and issuing the following Executive Orders:
1. Cybersecurity: President Obama appears likely to “establish a voluntary program where companies operating critical infrastructure would elect to meet cybersecurity best practices and standards crafted, in part, by the government.” These voluntary minimum security standards are supposed to ward against an escalating pattern of cyber intrusions on “critical infrastructure.” It’s hard to say exactly what the standards in this order would be with any precision.
2. Housing: Housing is perhaps both the most significant and most ignored problem facing the United States today — 11 million Americans currently are “underwater,” meaning they owe more in mortgage than their house is worth. The executive order under consideration would extend super-low refinancing rates to people who have private mortgages, a helpful move that’s nonetheless insufficient without Congressional action.
3. Climate Change: The Post reports that the President is thinking of expanding two first term climate change executive actions; emission standards for power plants imposed under the Clean Air Act and the Better Buildings Initiative. The former standards currently only applies to new power plants; after these are finalized, the President is “considering moving beyond that effort toward regulating carbon emissions from existing power plants.” The latter is an initiative to improve buildings’ energy efficiency. These two moves, however, only scratch the surface of potential executive actions on climate change.
4. Equality for federal LGBT workers: Congress has been recalcitrant about passing the Employee Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which extends full non-discrimination protection to all Americans on the ground of sexual orientation and gender identity. Until recently, President Obama had used the legislative effort as a shield against issuing an executive order that would extend said protections to federal contractors. It now seems likely that an order protecting contractors is forthcoming.
5. Fair payment for home care workers: Roughly two million Americans work in the in-home medical care sector but, due to a legal exemption, can be paid under the minimum wage and generally don’t receive standard overtime wages. These workers are almost all women, and large percentages are poor and/or racial minorities. While the White House initially announced plans to end the minimum wage and overtime exemptions in 2011, it has yet to finalize them — but may well soon.
It was announced today that Americans are paying the highest price they ever have, for gas. What is Obama going to do about that? Nothing.
Millions of our countrymen are out of work. Other Americans are underemployed, forced to work 2 and 3 jobs, and still living paycheck-to-paycheck. What is Obama going to do about that? Nothing.
American Children, who cannot read and write, are still being socially promoted, while teachers’ unions have the temerity to go on strike for fatter paychecks. What’s Obama going to do to help America’s children? Nothing
(Although, he and the First Wookie did start an anti-bullying campaign and make their school lunches smaller.) Biiiig help.
America’s Foreign Policy is a massive failure under The Manchurian President. He sent Crazy Uncle Joe to negotiate with the Muslim Barbarians in Iran, and they refused to talk to him. 4 brave Americans, including our Ambassador were slaughtered on the 11 Anniversary of the worst-ever Terrorist Attack on American Soil. What has Obama done to seek justice for these men? Nothing. He went to the United Nations and apologized for a Youtube video, which no one has seen, claiming it as the reason that Muslims rioted in the Middle East on 9/11/12.
Obama fully intends to continue with his quest for National Gun Confiscation. What will taking away law-abiding citzens’ guns do to protect the children in his Hometown of Chicago, from the cowardly thugs who are murdering them? Nothing.
Our Federal Government, under Obama, has grown to gargantuan proportions. In order to fund Obamacare, which will grow government even more, Obama is going to tax the He@@ out of Americans. What will that accomplish? Nothing.
In summary, tonight’s State of the Union Address is going to reflect the accomplishments and substance of President Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm).
In other words…an empty suit making empty promises…a big bag of nothing.
Until He Comes,
