Obama Kicks Off 2012 Campaign at Joint Session of Congress

Unbelievable that a President would call a joint session of Congress for this rhetoric.

Pass this jobs bill, pass the American Jobs Act now, pass this bill, pass it now, pass it now and in two weeks I’ll tell you how we’ll pay for it. He did allude to the super commission tasked with finding 1.6 trillion in cuts as part of the debt ceiling agreement, which I have little faith in. It seems the money to pay for this stimulus, err, I mean American Job Act will  come through them finding even more cuts. Wait a minute, we’re over 14 trillion in debt and the best they could do after the never-ending debt ceiling debate was agree to 1.6 trillion in cuts (net yet seen) and now say “find another 300 to 400 billion or more for this”. If you thought another 300 to 400 billion or so could be found why wasn’t that the original deal? Remember, Debt Ceiling Crisis.

Same old, same old… spend and tax, tax and spend.
He has nothing else. This is his ideology and his bases ideology. A large, all encompassing government that knows best. He cares naught for a strong private sector, well at least not unless it’s a union shop.
Like I said, bigger government since labor is almost like another part of this administration. And their methods are the same, pay your dues, shut up and we’ll take care of you. And if you don’t we’ll really take care of you. Chicago. Chicago… Labor employs the same socialist tenants the progressives want in place, just look at the how teachers are paid.

You can bet the details of the plan will be costly and favor the public sector over the private sector. All those “shovel-ready jobs”. The problem with these type of jobs are most all of them are temporary and must be paid for with tax dollars. We need the private sector to kick in gear or eventually their won’t be a private sector to pay for the public sector. But I’ll bet they’ve got a solution for that as well.
If you read between the lines you saw that this amounts to nothing more than “son of stimulus”.

I really didn’t hear a “plan”. Not a real plan. I think 80% of the speech was why we needed a plan, the obvious; empty words like, the family that…, the teacher teaching again, the construction worker building again (roads, bridges,… temporary public sector shovel ready jobs), this is what the American people want… We need to get these folks back to work. Pass this bill,… ad nauseam.

This wasn’t a plan. If you want to hear what a plan sounds like listen to one of Newt Gingrich’s speeches. He is very specific about what agencies need to be curtailed, merged and improved. He specifically outlines which bills, laws, taxes and regulations need to be thrown away or rewritten. Very specific.
Even Mitt Romney’s plan with 59 specific points, or Herman Cain’s 9-9-9 plan demonstrate specifics. That’s what plans do. They spell out how to get it done… not what needs to be done.

I was insulted and the fact that he delivered it to a joint session of Congress demonstrates just how arrogant he is and his disregard for American tradition. It’s all optics with this guy. That’s why he always uses a teleprompter.

So it looks like more of the same. Will the House pass such a bill. Probably (hopefully) not and Obama knows it, hence:
“I will be taking this plan to every corner of this country.” (And portray the Republicans as obstructionist.)

Let the campaign begin.

Weiner and the Progressive Method

Well it turns out that Congressman Anthony Weiner, with “certitude” did send the lewd photo of himself to the young woman. Turns out there are other women and other photos.

Rep. Anthony Weiner: ‘The Picture Was of Me and I Sent It’

This man is one of the premier attack dogs for the Democrats who constantly rants against the Right and tried to have Glenn Beck taken off the air, demanding an investigation of GoldLine (A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau) one of the shows sponsors as well as, get this, an ethics investigation into Glenn Beck.

Regarding his tweeting behavior; He later said: “This was a very dumb thing to do.”
( a dumb thing that he’s been doing for quite some time with ‘at least’ six other women )

Once upon a time when you did something that embarrassed yourself and your family as a matter of honor you resigned like Christopher Lee, R-N.Y., resigned in February immediately after a report emerged that he had sent flirtatious e-mails, including one with a bare-chested photo of himself, to a woman he met on Craigslist. Compare a bare-chested photo to Weiners wiener and the way each man took responsibility.

Naturally Weiner won’t resign, he’s a Democrat. He said he didn’t break any laws and won’t resign. I guess lying to the taxpayers doesn’t count.
If he had one ounce of integrity he would resign rather than drag himself and his party through this. But hey, Charlie Rangel, Bill Clinton, Ted Kennedy, …

Elected officials should be held to a higher standard because they represent us, the American people.

Just imagine if this had been John Boehner, Paul Ryan or Marco Rubio… just imagine.

But the left (and MSM) only displays moral outrage when it’s someone on the right who is at fault.

Just as it is natural for a dishonest person to see people as dishonest the left constantly projects their actions on their opponents.

Not even Richard Nixon’s administration or VP Dick Cheney’s association as CEO with Halliburton come anywhere close to the “cronyism” of this administration.
From GE’s (MSNBC) CEO Jeffrey Immelt now chairman Obama’s panel of economic advisers to Richard Trumka President of the AFL-CIO daily contact with the administration, Andy Stern SEIU (purple shirts) most White House visits during the first year of this administration,
Wade Rathke ACORN founder and the list goes on and on.
The money and special favors given to these people who support and helped elect Obama has been blatant even to the point of threatening a company, Boeing not to open a plant in a right-to-work state.
 
Not to mention the radical elements surrounding the administration. From Obama’s religious advisers to close friends and staff. Never before in the history of the country have we seen such an alliance with radical socialist than what is currently in and around this administration and yet the media says nothing. Why? Much of the media has this same agenda thereby nullifying the intention of a free press.
I could list many, many more names and their radical agendas that are close to Obama and this administration. It’s not hard at all, it’s all out there. But so much of America doesn’t seem to care or are so involved in their lives that they don’t know and can be easily influenced usually on an emotional level (social justice)… speaking to the heart, not the head.

I could go on and on. The list and ties are actually much deeper once you look into Presidential appointments and how the money flows.

Several things keep popping up once you start investigating these people.

Saul Alinsky – The Radical Organizer (The End Justifies the Means)
Cloward and Piven – The Strategy of Orchestrated Crisis
George Soros – The Money

The National Education Association (NEA) since Obama has taken office has added two Alinsky books on it’s Recommended Reading list:
Rules for Radicals and Reveille for Radicals

Many of Obama’s colleagues are Saul Alinsky proteges. Hilory Clinton’s master degree thesis was a positive paper on Saul Alinsky. Obama was brought into Chicago politics through Alinsky successors.

The Cloward-Piven Strategy of Orchestrated Crisis
 Seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.
— 47% increase in food stamps within 18 months of Obama’s term, ObamaCare, Repeated anti-business stance, Cap & Trade (price of energy will necessarily skyrocket), moratorium on oil drilling while investing in Brazil’s drilling (higher gas prices), EPA rules/regulations making it implausible for coal, refineries or any type of reasonably priced energy, the Fed printing money (devaluing the US dollar leading to increased energy/gas and food prices), regulation upon regulation making it difficult for the private sector.

Frances Fox Piven is now an American professor of political science and sociology at The Graduate Center, City University of New York, where she has taught since 1982 and remains highly involved in political activism.

George Soros has said he wants to reorganize the entire global economic system. Known as the “man who broke the Bank of England” the multi-billionaire has brought down several countries through the use of financial currency manipulations which he profited from. He funds dozens of organizations that are tied closely to the Obama administration. Not only have they helped to get him elected they’ve written policy and actively work to destroy opposition.

So they next time you hear someone say they want to “fundamentally transform”, you really need to ask yourself, transform into what.

So while every one is talking about Anthony Weiner here are just a few stories that got overlooked:

  • China dumps 97% of U.S. short t-bills.
  • Revealed: Geithner gives 80 Billion dollars to favored banks at .01% interest.
  • 2011 Housing Market worse than Great Depression
  • U.S. Funding for future promises lags by Trillions (61.6 Trillion behind)
    That’s $534,000 per household
  • China pumping money into Latin America for oil, food and minerals.
  • Dire numbers on manufacturing, home prices and unemployment.
  • Long term economic outlook projected to be as long as the Great Depression.
  • Austan Goolsbee an economic point man for the 2008 Obama campaign and, for less than a year, the head of the president’s Council of Economic Advisers, key economic adviser jumps ship.

Obama’s GWU Speech : Disgraceful

Demagogue In ChiefThe President’s extremely partisan speech yesterday at George Washington University was misleading with almost every word read from the teleprompter. Phony numbers, demagogue

Obama talked about how the Paul Ryan Budget Proposal gives the same tax breaks to the richest Americans. Notice the two words that were emphasized, “Bush” and “Richest”.
The Ryan Budget has nothing to do with the Bush tax cuts. The Ryan Budget is a reform of the tax much of which was taken from the Presidents own fiscal commission which Obama has repeatedly ignored.

He used words like “hurt your grandmother” even though this deficit cutting plan does not affect anyone over the age of 55 Obams gave the impression that it affects seniors now. Another tried and true tactic… more politics, less solutions.
The most laughable line of the speech was when Obama claimed Ryan’s proposal as “lacking courage” which is exactly what Ryan has delivered… courage and leadership, exactly what Obama has lacked.

Obama let it be known that his solution is to increase taxes while continuing to spend (invest). This is a recipe for disaster. Increasing taxes will stifle the economy and increased spending will continue the debt spiral.

Be prepared to witness a campaign focused on the class divide. Keep in mind people with money create jobs, whether it be an employer with ten employees to a large company with thousands. When impeded, jobs are not created.

Obama is not serious about the debt. Please, if you realize anything about this debate, you must know that.

To hear Obama marginalize Paul Ryan should have done nothing but infuriate those who really understand what has been accomplished by this man. Unlike Obama Ryan and his team worked on solutions that would create jobs while reducing the debt.
Watching him was a marvel.
Very few congressmen have impressed me like Paul Ryan. I spent the day watching him on CSPAN during the debt reduction committee meeting. His answers and his ability to work with members across the aisle gave me something I’ve been missing for quite some time when it comes to Congress, respect.
His answers and explanations were clear and complete. Not once did he resort to politics, like the President and his ilk. Not once was he thrown by a question. Every aspect of this debate was answered with well thought out and clear common sense as well as insightful solutions. Not sense hearing Newt Gingrich address a congressional committee have I been as impressed and Newt was reporting on solutions based on input from thousands of professionals while Ryan was reporting on work done by his one committee. And there was Obama scoffing at this. The contrast is remarkable.

Newt had this to say:

On this question of “how,” Paul Ryan’s budget proposal for 2012 is the most serious attempt by an elected official to rethink our public finances and the modern welfare state in a generation.

Ryan’s Path to Prosperity

Our budget, which we call The Path to Prosperity, is very different. For starters, it cuts $6.2 trillion in spending from the president’s budget over the next 10 years, reduces the debt as a percentage of the economy, and puts the nation on a path to actually pay off our national debt. Our proposal brings federal spending to below 20% of gross domestic product (GDP), consistent with the postwar average, and reduces deficits by $4.4 trillion.

Obama and his team members refuse to real work. It’s so much easier to just raise taxes, full steam ahead… what iceberg?

Ten years ago we were spending 1.8 trillion a year. Now we are spending over four trillion a year spiraling into a massive unsustainable debt. I ask you do you believe our quality of life is four times better.
— Are more people working?
— Are our students smarter?
— Is the dollar stronger?
— Are we more respected?
— Is the nation in better shape?
—- and so on…

This President and those who surround him have one goal which overrides everything and they will do whatever it takes to achieve it because they believe the means justify the end. What they want is a national state run by the government not the people as a part of a global and financial system.
Everything he has done and a vast majority of his appointments and advisers have worked to that end. Pure and simple, this is what he is.
This machine first got cranking in the twenties and has steamrolled in many forms. Infecting the elite and manipulating the masses the name has changed but the game remains the same.

FACT: If you took 100% of everything everyone who makes over 500,000 a year you would still fall short of the yearly deficit. So what ‘da think, we might be spending too much… “investing” too much.

Tax the rich…
FACT: Medicare as it currently exist will be broken in nine years. It will not be able to fulfill it’s purpose. Now is the time to make some changes. You will hear, “you want to end Medicare as we know it”. What does that mean. Any reform would change Medicare as we “know it”. What the Ryan Budget will do is insure there will actually be a Medicare.

FACT: When Japan’s newly passed law goes into affect the United States will have the highest corporate tax rate in the industrial world. How competitive is that! In this global market, I ask you, why wouldn’t companies locate somewhere else? Guess what, they are and will continue to do so. How can they compete with China and India who tax their corporations at the highest rate 10% less then we do.

FACT: Most jobs in this country are created by successful small business and most of those file as individuals.

Co-chairs of the Presidents Fiscal Commission Erskine Bowles and former Sen. Alan Simpson state the Ryan proposal was: Credible, Straight Forward and Honest

FACT: While food prices increase don’t you think it’s extremely ironic that we are subsidizing and using our food supply to make fuel. We do this in the name of clean energy while subsidizing third world countries and countries that do not necessarily like us to do the drilling and refining of oil resources for us. I ask you do you think these countries carry out their drilling and refining as responsibly as we would?

FACTS: I could go on and on. I haven’t even touched on the President and his ties to the Unions and what they are doing.

I implore you, my countrymen, please wake-up. Quit drinking the progressive kool-aid. I don’t care how good you think it makes you feel about yourself. Thinking will make you feel better… and cleaner.

“Share Your Profits” And “Sue Your Boss” Are Not Job Growth Strategies

by Austin Hill at townhall.com

Think back a long time ago.
Stretch your mind, and go all the way back to January 21st, 2011.

On that day, the President of the United States spoke to an audience at a General Electric plant in Schenectady, NY and said, among other things:

“We’re going back to Thomas Edison’s principles… We’re going to build stuff and invent stuff..(thunderous applause).”

Yes, President Barack Obama said that. And never mind that one of Thomas Edison’s most profound inventions, the light bulb, is about to be outlawed by the Obama Administration.

Obama’s Fickle Finger

 Obama is a great politician, no doubt, he can craft a speech, throw it up on the teleprompter and hypnotize an audience.

It’s only natural that during a presidential campaign where you are scrutinized as never before that you would have seen how photos are used and how the “perfect moment” photo can be found within video. I’m sure Obama is aware of this.

So at the Summit of the Americas when Hugo Chavez, a lying, murdering, dictator, jumps up and comes around the table to give Obama a book, Obama shakes his hand… The book was, “The Open Veins of Latin America” by Eduardo Galeano, a socialist who trashes and blames America and those of European descent (white) for all the ills of South America. Full of created and manipulated history, the same rubbish that has been hurled at the United States by leftist dictators for decades …you capitalist pig.

Here is the photo that Chavez has released around the world which shows Obama not only shaking his hand but pointing at the book as they clasp hands. Looks like a recommendation and apparently it has worked out very well for Chavez as the book came from 54,000 and skyrocketed to #2 on Amazon.com, second only to “Liberty and Tyranny” 🙂

CB Trinidad Americas Summit Obama

Now I watched the video of this brief interlude several times and the photo that you see of Obama pointing his finger at the book was a split second movement toward the end of the handshake, it happened very quickly. You could easily miss it if you weren’t looking for it. But the “perfect moment” photo was there.

Here’s the video. Watch how quickly his finger moves (points). Yet the photo above give the impression he was standing there pointing at the book. This is what is meant by “used for propoganda”, yet…

 

Now I ask you, have you ever pointed your finger quickly at the end of a hand shake like that? Oh, you might point your finger when the handshake was finished like “you da man”. But that’s not what happened. Obama pointed very quickly and brought his finger back in for the release of the handshake.
I’m not a nut and I feel strange analysing a handshake this closely but it is weird and the more I see it the weirder it looks.

 Later this was reported:
“I want to be your friend,”Chavez was quoted as telling Obama by the Venezuelan government. (you ignoramous)
 There has been a lot of concern over the level of apologizing and the characterization of America’s policies and actions by Obama in his speeches abroad. Obama has depicted America as arrogant, divisive, derisive, and our actions fighting terrorist as “the dark and painful chapter in our history”.
 These are exactly the perspectives presented in the book Chavez gave Obama and Obama has been apologizing for them on each of his trips abroad.
  Simply put, Obama is saying America’s past actions have been questionable, BUT NOW, now that he is President this has all changed. Now we can be proud of America.
  Wait a minute, where have I heard that.?
