July 2011

Staggering unemployment. Crippling inflation. Crushing deficits. The country wallowing in a new great malaise. What’s the most smartest president in the history of the American Republic to do?

Throw himself a party, that’s what!

birthday-obama

You know who puts the party in the Democrat Party

The Chicago Sun Times rounds up the details so you can RSVP ASAP:

President Obama returns to Chicago on Aug. 3 to mark his 50th birthday with fund-raisers at the Aragon Ballroom, with tickets ranging from $50 a person to $35,800 per couple, which includes VIP seating at a “Birthday Concert” where celebs will be performing and a dinner with the president.

The fundraiser at the Aragon, the historic ballroom in Uptown, will be one of the biggest third quarter events, expected to draw in national supporters. Obama’s 50th birthday is Aug. 4. UPDATE The Aragon is a cosy venue–I went to concerts there in college and high school–and I heard Thursday afternoon all the performers will be native Chicagoans. END UPDATE

The Obama team on Wednesday reported collecting more than $86 million in second quarter fund-raising over $47 million directly for the Obama 2012 campaign and more than $38 million for the Democratic National Committee.

But wait it gets better!

The event is multi-tiered: There is a concert at 4 p.m.–Foster said songstress Jennifer Hudson may perform–for the basic $50 contribution, of which there is supposed to be “limited availability.”

For $10,000, a person gets a souvenir photo with Obama at a reception and preferred seating at the concert. For $1,000 a person gets seated in a “premium section” with a “hosted bar.” A general admission ticket is $200.

What’s that you say? The peasants have no bread? No worries, let them eat Obama’s birthday cake.

So this is how James Clyburn would have our democracy end. Not with a bang. Not even with a whimper. But with Obama assuming the unilateral power to further sell off our children’s futures to China in his never ending crusade to buy votes and pay back his political cronies.

james-clyburn

"The Constitution? Hmmmmm. I've heard people talk about it, but I'm not really familiar with it myself."

Real Clear Politics provides the stage:

Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC): “I’ve said time and time again, if the President gets up to August 2nd, without a piece of legislation, he should not allow this country to go into default. He should sign an Executive Order invoking the 14th Amendment and send that to all the governmental agencies for us to continue to pay our bills. He could do that with a stroke of a pen.

“We’ve seen many big things done in history that way. I’ve joked with my staff the other day, ‘tell me what was the bill number of the Emancipation Proclamation.’ It was an Executive Order.

Perhaps someone should let the honorable Representative James Clyburn know. Through the Emancipation Proclamation Lincoln sought to free some of the slaves, not create new ones.

Lemonade is the drink of oppression!

by editor on July 31, 2011

Greetings from our glorious dear leader, Barack Obama.

Dear leader asks all of you to be vigilant in your examination of any activities contrary to the true socialist way in order that we create our one utopian society. For example, any of your neighbors who are expressing acts and attitudes of self-determination and entrepreneurship should immediately be turned into authorities for re-education.

lemons

Liberal philosophy: When life hands you lemonade, make lemons

In one example of this, a group of young deluded capitalist she-devils tried to sell cool drinks in Midway, Georgia without the necessary permits, licenses, detailed reports, and bribes.

Thankfully the local authorities shut these little free market devils down.

Huliq.com has the story:

Police Chief Kelly Morningstar said, “We had told them, ‘We understand you guys are young, but still, you’re breaking the law, and we can’t let you do it anymore.’ The law is the law, and we have to be consistent with how we enforce the laws.”

Among the issues, along with the lack of permits, was potential health issues. “We were not aware of how the lemonade was made, who made the lemonade, of what the lemonade was made with, so we acted accordingly by city ordinance.”

Typically, lemonade is made with lemon or lemon flavoring. But, our dear leader frowns on such unsubstantiated claims and smartass retorts.

All hail our glorious leader!

Smart folk in Washington are busily staring into their crystal balls (or perhaps Magic 8-Balls) trying to figure out why unemployment is so “unexpectedly” high. Perhaps if they stopped playing with their balls and listened to some real employers, they might get a clue.

David McElroy shares the story of one Ronnie Bryant who operates coal mines in Alabama. Bryant went to a public hearing in an innercity Birmingham neighborhood for various government officials to get public input on local environmental issues. After listening to two hours of business bashing by environmentalists and other activists, he finally had his say:

I got a permit to open up an underground coal mine that would employ probably 125 people. They’d be paid wages from $50,000 to $150,000 a year. We would consume probably $50 million to $60 million in consumables a year, putting more men to work. And my only idea today is to go home. What’s the use? I don’t know. I mean, I see these guys — I see them with tears in their eyes — looking for work. And if there’s so much opposition to these guys making a living, I feel like there’s no need in me putting out the effort to provide work for them. So as I stood against the wall here today, basically what I’ve decided is not to open the mine. I’m just quitting. Thank you.

Memo to President Obama: Words matter and your words matter more than most. Businesses aren’t stupid. Keep bashing them and they’ll take the hint and go away.

Think about that between holes.

It looks like John McCain is in the mood. In the mood for a little mainstream media love. And he knows just how to get it.

First he puts on a little Barry White. Then he pours a little of the bubbly and finally he gets them really purring by lampooning the Tea Party while letting it oh-so-casually slip that the RINO from Arizona has a fetish for those wee little people of Middle Earth.

john-mccain

John McCain covers his face. Unfortunately, it wasn't done in shame.

One Reason story to rule them all:

The five-term Republican senator from Arizona gets his sneer on:

Mr. McCain mocked Tea Party-allied Republicans in the House for believing — wrongly, he said — that President Obama and Democrats will get the blame for a default if Republicans refuse to increase the nation’s debt ceiling.

By that flawed logic, “Democrats would have no choice but to pass a balanced budget amendment and reform entitlements and the Tea Party Hobbits could return to Middle Earth,” he said, quoting a Wall Street Journal editorial

“This is the kind of crack political thinking that turned Sharron Angle and Christine O’Donnell into G.O.P. nominees,” he jeered, referring to two losing Tea Party candidates for the Senate in 2010.

And while we would like to commend the man for the sort of crackhead political thinking that will lead to the creation of a third major party we’re not sure we need any more lessons from John McCain.

He’s already taught us everything we need to know about losing presidential elections.

Awww. President Obama is working so feverishly convincing grandma that John Boehner wants to kill her, he’s losing sleep. At least that’s the narrative his staff is pushing to make it appear the roadblock-in-chief is not the one actually blocking the road.

barack-obama-scary

He's coming to scare your granmother

Wipe your tears away as we hear from that purveyor of conventional wisdom, Reuters:

President Barack Obama is deeply involved in trying to win a debt deal and his White House was working flat out, aides said…

They’re so busy they haven’t had time to actually write a plan.

“He’s getting absolutely no sleep. He’s working tirelessly, meeting with his economic team, doing a lot of outreach, exploring all kinds of possibilities for compromise,” top Obama aide Valerie Jarrett told Reuters Insider.

In Obama-speak, “compromise” means “doing what I want.” He’s working tirelessly on ways to obfuscate that.

Several press conferences and a prime-time televised address to the nation by the president from the stately East Room, plus a background briefing by senior Obama aides that went late into Friday night, have added to the controlled frenzy at the White House.

Obama’s concept of “work” is babbling to the media. Listening to the fool is even harder.

This has translated into even longer days than normal at the White House, which already begin in the early hours of every morning as senior staff prepared for their daily 7:30 a.m. meeting in the office of the chief of staff.

Boo-hoo. Life would surely be easier if members of the Obama administration spent a bit of time amongst the legions of “funemployed” where their policies have put so many others. Someday soon, if we’re lucky.

Proving that our favorite mucho macho, would-be dictator isn’t all bad, former KGB spook Vladimir Putin has inspired some very attractive ladies to expose their most closely held secrets for the good of the party . . . in their pants.

To paraphrase one  of our least favorite architects of despotism, hotties of the world unite. You’ve nothing to lose but your clothes.

The Telegraph UK better acquaints us with some of these Moscow girls gone wild:

Called “Putin’s Army”, it features a video of a blonde student called Diana who struts along Moscow’s streets in high heels and a black suit before scrawling “I will tear my clothes off for Putin” on a white top in red lipstick and starting to undo her clothes.

Inviting girls to strip off for Putin for the chance of winning an iPad2, the campaign comes ahead of the March 2012 presidential vote. Putin was president between 2000-2008 before handing the reins to his protégé Dmitry Medvedev.

Widely seen as Russia’s key decision-maker, Putin may return to the Kremlin next year.

For a land known for it’s cold, inhospitable winters it is good to see these warm fronts popping up . . . and out.

This comes not from the Onion but from “Think Progress” (a euphemism, we’re sure.)

Bernie Sanders, the only officially declared socialist in Congress, thinks President Obama veers too far to the right and he’s not talking about the latter’s putting. He can’t be joking, there’s no such thing as socialist humor.

bernie-sanders

Bernie Sanders, just as crazy as he looks

Sanders: “… I think there are millions of Americans who are deeply disappointed in the president; who believe that, with regard to Social Security and a number of other issues, he said one thing as a candidate and is doing something very much else as a president; who cannot believe how weak he has been …in negotiating with Republicans and there’s deep disappointment. …I think one of the reasons the president has been able to move so far to the right is that there is no primary opposition to him and I think it would do this country a good deal of service if people started thinking about candidates out there to begin contrasting what is a progressive agenda as opposed to what Obama is doing. …I think it would be a good idea if President Obama faced some primary opposition.” 

True, millions are unhappy with President Obama, but not because he’s not bankrupting them fast enough as ol’ Bernie believes. No matter, as a famous Chicagoland thug once said, “Never waste a good crisis.”

So you go, Bernie, primary Obama. Make him turn left so much he spins like a top and drills himself another hole to dig out of.

The Chicago Boyz (they’re free market advocates, not cronies of President Pampers) have an interesting hypothetical question: what if there were a shovel-ready project that would generate American jobs, require NO government money or debt, provide America with a secure source of energy and benefit an important ally… what would we think of an American administration that continually obstructed this project?

jackson-sharpton

Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton get together to protest this crazy talk about an agitator class

Turns out there IS such a project, the Keystone XL pipeline. And it’s being blocked by the Genius-in-Chief on behalf of the usual suspects:

The reality is that large segments of the environmental movement have become so unhinged that they will instinctively oppose any large-scale construction project, even if it involves the transportation of magical pixie dust.

Actually, transportation of magical pixie dust is probably the one thing Obama would support.

The Chicago Boyz come to this unhappy conclusion:

Sadly, the U.S. Government is now being largely run by and on behalf of two classes of people:

–Theorists, whose heads are so deeply buried in books, models, and spreadsheets that they are unable to see the actual world and have lost all semblance of balance and judgment.

–Agitators, who “earn” their living and get their sense of satisfaction in life from stirring up all segments of society against one another, in a neo-Hobbesian war of all against all.

A bunch of pinheads and weiners, the Obama Administration is the albatross around our necks. And while we’re sitting in the dark waiting for our windmills to turn, China will buy the oil and the Canadians will get even richer.

Millions of years ago, our ancestors came down from the trees, walked erect and kicked every other species asses. Now, if the eco-wackos have their way, we’ll soon reverse millions of years of evolution and return to the trees.

fab-tree-house-of-the-future

Back to the future: Eco-wackos are taking us back to the trees

This is what’s known as progress to environmentalists.

PlanetaryOne.com explains the home of the future:

Our dwelling is composed with 100% living nutrients. Here traditional anthropocentric doctrines are overturned and human life is subsumed within the terrestrial environs. Home, in this sense, becomes indistinct and fits itself symbiotically into the surrounding ecosystem.

This home concept is intended to replace the outdated design solutions at Habitat for Humanity. We propose a method to grow homes from native trees. A living structure is grafted into shape with prefabricated Computer Numeric Controlled (CNC) reusable scaffolds.

Yes. It’s a tree. A tree house, to be exact. Take your choice of closing lines:

1. Not only will you love it, but so will every dog in the neighborhood.

2. This is just what the housing industry needs to once again become a growth industry.

3. Only one problem. The builder says it won’t be ready to move into for another 50 years.

Casino mogul Steve Wynn describes himself as a Democratic businessman and Harry Reid supporter. While supporting McCain in 2008, his wife drank the Kool Aid. But like many astute businessmen, Wynn cares more about business than politics and is not above supporting Republicans when necessary, or excoriating a Democrat president either.

Wynn’s press conference rant drew Business Insider’s attention:

…I’m saying it bluntly, that this administration is the greatest wet blanket to business, and progress and job creation in my lifetime … I could spend the next 3 hours giving you examples of all of us in this market place that are frightened to death about all the new regulations, our healthcare costs escalate, regulations coming from left and right. [Obama] keeps using that word “redistribution.”

…until we change the tempo and the conversation from Washington, it’s not going to change. And those of us who have business opportunities and the capital to do it are going to sit in fear of the President … this is Obama’s deal and it’s Obama that’s responsible for this fear in America.

The guy keeps making speeches about redistribution and maybe we ought to do something to businesses that don’t invest, their holding too much money. We haven’t heard that kind of talk except from pure socialists. Everybody’s afraid of the government and there’s no need soft peddling it, it’s the truth.

Well, even Krugman thinks it’s 1937 again.

By the way, Steve, your buddy Harry Reid helped Obama significantly to realize his “accomplishments”. Maybe it’s past time you considered downgrading his freebies. Just sayin’.

Government officials just don’t come any funnier than Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner.

We believe it’s absolutely impossible to keep a straight face when you hear his latest material. You’d laugh even if he didn’t look like Butthead’s doppelganger.

Here he is defending an op-ed he wrote last year when he announced the Summer of Recovery. This is, of course, despite record unemployment, increasing inflation, and an imploding economy.

Need we bother saying that this lunatic is a Democrat?

Former U.S. Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney seems to have found an eager audience in Iran. She showed up on an Iranian TV interview show and said, among other things, that the United States government was responsible for the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, and Julius Caesar.

(OK, we threw in Caesar. But she probably would have said it if she’d thought of it.)

What could make this story any better? How about the fact that she was in Iran at an United Nations-supported Conference on Global Fight Against Terrorism.

Take it away, Cynthia.

GE brings good things to China

by editor on July 28, 2011

Recently, IHateTheMedia.com wrote about Obama crony and General Electric CEO Jeff Immelt telling a US jobs summit that businesses needed to stop blaming the government for unemployment and take the lead on job creation. Like the conman president he sucks up to, Immelt is a “Do as I say not as I do” kind of guy.

jeff-immelt

Jeff Immelt ponders whether he should spit or swallow during his next meeting with President Obama

The Wall Street Journal explains:

General Electric Co. said it is moving its X-ray business headquarters to China to accelerate sales in the country’s fast-growing health-care market…

The business has already begun the move—which includes the unit’s chief executive and three other members of its executive team—and expects to complete the process by year end…

GE said it doesn’t expect the move to result in any job losses in the U.S., where the unit has been based in Waukesha, Wis. The Wisconsin X-ray division has 120 employees. The company also said it is too early to say how many employees it will hire for the unit’s new Beijing headquarters.

Translation: “Doesn’t expect any job losses” is bureaucrat-ese for “Kiss those U.S. jobs good-bye.”

“Too early to say how many employees it will hire” means “You’ll be pissed when you find out how many.”

We respect GE’s right to conduct its business as it sees fit. We do resent the company castigating others for our unemployment problem, a problem GE itself is busy exacerbating, in order to deflect blame from the bonehead whose economic policies did most of the damage.

Hmmmmm. Remember all those news stories that said the Deepwater Horizon oil spill was the greatest environmental disaster in history? You know, the ones that said the oil would devastate Gulf Coast wildlife for decades, that avian life would be decimated, that the Gulf Coast was a dead zone.

In the words of Saturday Night Live’s Emily Litella, “Never mind.” Turns out the Gulf Coast has never had so damn many birds.

laughing-gull-gulf-coast

Now we know what the laughing gull is laughing at: The environmentalists' predictions

Reuters has the avian info:

The 1,300-acre, man-made island is hosting more than 50,000 birds this summer as nesting pairs gather to raise babies. That number would be considered high in any year, but it’s a particularly surprising sight a year after oil from the BP spill fouled surrounding waters.

The Deepwater Horizon rig explosion spewed more than 168 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico over three months, the largest spill in U.S. history. But so far, there is no evidence of deformities or ill health among the young on Gaillard Island.

Scientists speculate that the baby boom probably results from an abundance of fish left undisturbed in waterways where the federal government banned commercial and recreational fishing last summer, providing a feast for shore birds.

Abundance of fish? But we thought the Gulf Coast waters were a dead zone in which nothing could live. But…but… but…

In a speech this spring, the executive director of the nearby Dauphin Island Sea Lab said the fish populations in that part of the Gulf were larger than he had ever seen.

The population of the pelicans, terns, laughing gulls, egrets, ibis and little blue and tricolored herons nesting on Gaillard Island is determined by the food supply, said Roger Clay, a wildlife biologist with the Alabama Division of Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries.

Now hold on just a darn second. We thought the few fish that didn’t die in the oil were horribly sickened by it, had given birth to deformed little fish fingers and that they would all end up devastating animals further up the food chain.

“If something was wrong with the food, the first place it would show is with the birds,” said Clay, also known as the “the pelican guy.”

In other words, if something were wrong with the science and the scientists, this is also the first place it would show up.

But let’s not talk about that. Hey, look over there. It’s a bright, shiny object.

Another week begins and with it the continued debate over raising the debt ceiling. And for now, we are happy to report, the Republicans are not caving to the tax and spend demands of those who need our money to make their fortunes.

harry-reid

Harry Reid salutes the Constitution

Let’s go to Politico:

With no agreement reached by Sunday afternoon, House and Senate leaders appear to be moving in different directions with competing plans to raise the nation’s debt ceiling, dramatically highlighting the major discord on Capitol Hill with eight days until the United States defaults on its $14.3 trillion debt.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) began to draft his own legislation Sunday that would slash at least $2.7 trillion to match an extension of the nation’s borrowing limit through the 2012 election, Democratic leadership aides said. Reid and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi met with President Barack Obama on Sunday evening.

Our advice to Mr. Reid? Heed the sage advice of another sage Harry: Our bucks stop here. And so should the debt ceiling.

Forget the bogus polls produced by the media fellators – when road signs turn against a politician, he’s cooked.

No matter how many of those “This waste of money courtesy of American Non-recovery and Malinvestment Act” signs Obama bought, none of them mean as much as one honest electronic sign.

impeach-obama-road-sign

Consider it a sign of the times

WSOCTV.com has the story of a sign of the times:

A Department of Transportation electronic road sign was apparently hacked into and the road warning changed over the weekend.

Hacked? We can hear Jay Carney now babbling something about GW Bush’s secret computer skills.

The sign at the intersection of Unionville-Indian Trail and Ridge roads in Union County was changed to read “Impeach Obama.”

The sign was corrected Sunday night, officials said.

Good thing they fixed it. Impeachment is a long drawn-out process and the Democrat weiners in the Senate would never convict him. Better to vote Barry out of office in 2012 and then procescute him.

Electronic road signs were also hacked several months ago in Rock Hill. Instead of displaying political messages, those signs warned of zombies, hunters and tanks in the roadway ahead.

We beg to differ. Zombies and tanking pretty much ARE political messages in the age of the greatest presidential failure ever. All the signs were there before the last election, and even more of them are visible now.

For the past month, the country has been on a wild goof chase over the debt ceiling issue. Numerous plans to tackle the problem have emerged from the congressional side, all of which were unacceptable to His Golfship.

Why doesn’t Congress simply vote on Obama’s plan? Where, reporters ask, is Obama’s plan? Good question. Watch as The Carney Barker spends ten minutes not answering it:

Jay Carney: “The president stood before you on Friday night and put forward in detail with numbers what he’s willing to do…”

Talk is cheap, Jay, especially Obama’s. Later, Jay puts a little meat on dem bones:

Jay Carney: “We’ve shown a lot of leg on what we were proposing…”

Is that Obama-speak for “The dog ate our debt plan”? Believe it or not, we’re closing in on the truth. Jay is too ashamed to say it so he hints at it:

Jay Carney: “Is it because you need something printed for you, you can’t write it down [yourself]?”

Writing’s the problem. We understand perfectly. During his magnificent college career, Barry delivered all his classwork via telepathy: just concentrate real hard and beam his insights on Marxist flatulence right to Professor Mushmouth’s brain. He never expected to encounter knuckle-draggers who bother reading stuff, so he never deigned to learn the useless skill.

Please Mr. President, humor us. Pull out your plan and write it down for us.

If you can’t do it yourself, call Bill Ayers. He did an outstanding job writing your other works of fiction.

Call Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. Representative Barbara Lee of California has stumbled upon the greatest conspiracy of our era. An insidious plot that makes the faked moon landing look like the work of a high school AV club and that JFK business mere child’s play.

According to Lee House Republicans are engaged in a reprehensible canard meant to convince the gullible citizens that the fact that their country has run out of money is a “crises.”

barbara-lee

Barbara Lee. Or maybe Sugar Ray Leonard in drag. We're not sure which.

The truth is out there. And CNS brings it to us:

Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) released a statement Monday saying the “debt crisis” has been “manufactured by House Republicans” who are “attempting to advance an extremist agenda.”

“The current, so-called ‘debt crisis’ has been completely manufactured by House Republicans attempting to advance an extremist agenda.

This should be a simple vote to allow the US Treasury to fund all of the programs and obligations of the entire federal government that are already in the law,” said Rep. Lee in a statement handed out to reporters before a Democratic press conference on jobs at the Capitol.

Rep. Lee has called for Congress to increase the debt limit with no strings attached like spending cuts.

It is clear to us now that our Republic is in good standing so long as there are public servants out there like Lee. Brave souls willing to defend this country against that nefarious and extremist agenda of fiscal sanity and sound economic policy.

Representative Lee, we salute you.

What do you call a guy who yells “Fire!” in a crowded theatre while texting his cronies “Chill out and get ready to snap up free popcorn”?

Unfortunately, the proper appellation in this case would be “Mr. President”.

obama-yells-fire

"Fire! Fire! Fire! Just kidding! Just kidding! Just kidding!"

Fox News relates a tale of underhanded scaremongering for personal political advantage – in other words, just another day at the Oval Office in the Obama Administration:

While officials from the Obama Administration raised their rhetoric over the weekend about the possibility of a debt default if the debt ceiling isn’t raised, they privately have been telling top executives at major U.S. banks that such an event won’t happen….

…administration officials have told bankers that the administration will not allow a default to happen even if the debt cap isn’t raised by the August 2 date Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner says the government will run out of money to pay all its bills, including obligations to bond holders.

A senior banking official told FOX Business that administration officials have provided guidance to them that […] a default is off the table…

This guidance is a big reason why Wall Street has largely dismissed the possibility of default…

“They also know they can pay the debt with cash on hand,” this official told FOX Business.

Obamunists scream “Republican monsters are going to eat your social security checks!” to grandmothers while nudging the bankers and whispering, “Don’t take this crap seriously.”
