Obama’s Failed Presidency Summed Up in Two Words; Let’s Pretend

SHREADING THE CONSTITUTIONWatching what has taken place in the world since Barack Hussein Obama fraudulently entered the White House has been horrific enough. Countless millions have been displaced in Syria, Yemen, Iraq, and Libya because of his meddling and inaction when most urgently needed.

Yesterday was the breaking point.Russia bombed Syrian freedom fighters instead of ISIS, thus propping Assad and strengthening IRAN.

 

As the U.S. leads from behind (an oxymoron if ever there was) Obama’s chaotic policy, has brought the rise of ISIS with mass murders on a scale not seen since WWII. And if all of this hasn’t been bad enough, the world has had to suffer watching the barbaric destruction of ancient sites and priceless artifacts along with the ethnic cleaning of Christians and other non-Muslim minorities.

 

All of this was unnecessary. All of this could have been prevented had the media, political classes, and the legal profession had been truthful about Obama’s eligibility to run for the office of U.S. president.

 

Instead we have Let’s Pretend that:

 

  1. a man whose father was British subject when he was born, making him a dual citizen at best, met the legal requirement of Natural Born Citizen for the office of POTUS
  2. his upbringing in Indonesia living in a Muslim country during his formative years, going to school and reciting Muslim prayers had no impact on his adult view of the world
  3. the Founding Fathers didn’t foresee that persons not born as Natural Born Citizens (NBC) would face the challenge of divided loyalties
  4. the person holding the single most important position in the world shouldn’t be absolutely clear that his/her loyalty belongs 100% to this country and the Constitution
  5. a community organizer and part-time Constitutional law instructor with radical friends like Bill Ayers, a man with one year in the U.S. Senate was ever qualified for the office
  6. members of both political parties weren’t aware Obama was ineligible because of their own selfish political motives … McCain, Cruz, Rubio, Jindal all ineligible
  7. progressives in politics, the media, and in the legal community haven’t been trying to eliminate the NBC Constitutional qualification for years by ignoring current laws, passing resolutions and private laws designed to side step it
  8. Obama’s draw-down of the military, cuts in defense, obsession with getting an Iran treaty at all costs, giving lip service help our Mideast allies including Jordan, Israel, the Kurds hasn’t helped Iran and strengthened Russia
  9. Obama should remain in office one minute longer!

 

The fraud at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue needs to resign or be removed as quickly as possible. His residency in the White House is a threat to the safety and security of this country and the civilized world.

 

Obama’s actions and inactions have proven conclusively his is incapable of carrying  out the duties of POTUS.

Why Trump is Correct About Birthright Citizenship

The phrase “subject to the jurisdiction thereof” was intended to exclude American-born persons from automatic citizenship whose allegiance to the United States was not complete. With illegal aliens who are unlawfully in the United States, their native country has a claim of allegiance on the child. Thus, the completeness of their allegiance to the United States is impaired, which therefore precludes automatic citizenship.  …  Sen. Jacob M. Howard, author of the citizenship clause

Make no mistake we are finally talking about the 14th Amendment,  birthright citizenship  and its impact on the country because of Donald Trump’s bid to become president. Anchor babies have long been an issue Progressives, radical Democrats, and the MSM have deliberately down-played while ridiculing those who seek to see the Constitution properly upheld.  Those who consider themselves Constitutionalists are portrayed as racists, uncouth unpolished “nativists” deserving contempt.

 

Donald Trump’s entrance into the GOP race for president has once again ignited a long standing battle over the meaning of birthright citizenship between two competing groups. It may also produce an honest discussion about this critically important issue.

 

Hard core Progressives, believe in the theory of a living Constitution. What they really mean is selective enforcement and interpretation of the Constitution.  Put another way, if you like a law enforce it. If you don’t like a law ignore it.

 

Trump supporters, many in the GOP, independents, and a lesser known group of attorneys and jurists believe in enforcing the Constitution as written (original intent). What this means is if you don’t like a law change or amend it but don’t ignore or selectively enforce it!

 

These two camps are also aligned against each other as it relates to the Constitutional requirement of Natural Born Citizenship for the presidency. Both the NBC clause (Article II Section 1 Clause 5) and birthright citizenship (as defined in the 14th Amendment) are linked by the open borders gang. The MSM refused to cover the issue honestly and truthfully, but Trump was right about Obama’s citizenship, even if Obama’s birth certificate was a secondary issue.

 

Progressives, radical Democrats, print journalists, and many well-known on-air personalities/attorneys know that open borders bringing a flood of illegal immigrants intentionally dilutes U.S. citizenship. This political faction believes that the Constitution and U.S. citizenship are quaint concepts to be ignored and overturned. They talk about the rule of law and give it lip service, but rarely practice it. One of the reasons, no strike that, one of the excuses used is the Constitution is just so darn hard to change through the amendment process!

 

Attorneys and liberal professors from the country’s most prestigious law schools are in the ranks leading the charge.  The MSM’s legal Constitutional experts on speed dial are blowing smoke, conflating the issues and intentionally lying.  These Constitutional lawyers  get away with twisting the truth because way too much deference is paid to them, most of it undeserved. They are corrupt propagandists who get away with their mendacity because too few of us take the time to actually go to the source (ahem, the Constitution and its amendments) and read what is written.

 

All of which brings us to Donald Trump’s run for the presidency, his campaign launch and his position on birthright citizenship.

 

When the 14th Amendment was passed, it was after slavery had been declared unconstitutional. The Civil War had ended but many Southern Democrats continued to continue the battle under the cover of states’ rights. At that time in our history there were many states trying to limit the citizenship rights of the newly freed slave population with Jim Crow laws.

 

The 14th Amendment as passed was designed to grant citizenship to and protect the civil liberties of recently freed slaves. Granting citizenship to native-born black Americans and their children in this manner prevented states from “denying or abridging the privileges or immunities” of all U.S. citizens.  The 14th Amendment  gave the newly freed slaves, now U.S. citizens equal protection under the laws of our country.

 

The key phrase in the 14th Amendment is “subject to the jurisdiction thereof” and it is what provides that U.S. citizenship is intended for those lawfully in the country, under the jurisdiction of its laws and those who can legally claim allegiance to the U.S.

 

Those native born in other countries and their children, under the jurisdiction of the laws of their native country and without allegiance to the U.S. are not  guaranteed automatic citizenship by virtue of placing their feet on U.S. soil as the open borders crowd would have you believe.

 

The good news is Trump has forced the GOP, the Democrats, and the MSM to bring the kind of focus birthright citizenship deserves. The bad news, however, is the open door policy espoused by the Obama administration especially in the last seven years has placed our country in danger.

 

Sadly, the use and misuse of the 14th Amendment has been going on for over 100 years. It has become the go-to amendment for the Supreme Court to use for cases having absolutely nothing to do with ensuring the rights and ensuring the protection of native-born black citizens of this country.

 

The equal protection clause which  provides for equal protection under the law for life, liberty, and property has been used for everything from whether a state statue a state statute can prohibit counseling on birth control to married couples Griswold v. Connecticut to the recent case upholding same sex marriage in all 50 states Obergefell v. Hodges.

 

In truth, the 14th Amendment has gone from post Civil War reconstruction legislation to a club used by Progressive politicians and their friends on the Court to find new rights never enumerated or conceived of by the framers of the Constitution.

 

Chicago’s Black Community to Obama…It’s Time for You to Quit!

The truth is, talk is cheap and no one has talked more or cheapened the presidency like Barack Hussein Obama.

 

I might have been able to overlook the fact that Obama has knowingly occupied the White House as the country’s first constitutionally ineligible president if he had been able to live up the rhetoric. We all know he hasn’t. He is as incompetent as anyone with half a brain was able to predict back in 2008.

 

The truth is what counts in life and in sports are results.  Team Obama’s lack of results speak for themselves. What is truly tragic is the impact on the black community, single women, and Millennials…all who voted for “Hope & Change” and got screwed. There are no jobs, no money, no nothing except faded bumper stickers and dreams.

 

All of which brings us to the following video.

 

Obamacare Website Knowingly Launched With 40% of Payment Software Not Completed!

Only in Washington is it acceptable to launch a website, 3  years in the development, that was never properly tested, crashing multiple times with as few as 6 users prior to the October 1st launch date, with limitless privacy issues, and STILL needs the back-end of the software to be built.

 

SAY WHAT???

 

It seems that less than two weeks before the Ocare website is supposed to fully functional (AGAIN!) as promised by Team Obama, 40% of the payment software is still to be completed. Do I have to state the obvious? Well, maybe for those Ocare supporters who can’t stop drinking the Kool-Aid, I do.

 

A glitch is a small momentary or temporary happenstance. A website that isn’t fully built, is a travesty, a hoax foisted on the American people by Washington ideologues, Progressives who don’t give a damn about anything but their always failed political agendas.

 

The whole thing needs to be scrapped. The government and its slew of annoyingly arrogant bureaucrats cannot build a system of this type. It isn’t only the complexity that Obama finally acknowledged yesterday, it is the lack of real life business experience and flexibility.

 

Crats” know how to propose laws and enforce them when it suits their needs and little else.   People who couldn’t operate a lemonade stand and make a profit have NO business trying to build a healthcare system that impacts one-sixth of the nation’s economy!  Geez!

 

 

NBC/WSJ Poll Rigged to Make Republicans Look Bad & Obama Look Good During Shutdown

FIGURES LIE4Liars figure and figures lie…economic axiom especially àpropos for political polls 

OK, we hear and read about them all the time, political polls, but many of us actually take the time to look at the entire poll? I confess I have once or twice in my life, that’s it.

But this last NBC/WSJ poll that CNN, CBS, ABC, MSNBC & the rest of the MSM had sooooo much fun quoting seemed to good to be true. Well, there’s a reason for that, it was.  The key question in the 17 page poll was rigged.

 

Rigged, you say? Well, I find that impossible! Are you sure? You betcha! Notice anything missing from the key question on page 12, say a mention of the Democrats?

HART RESEARCH ASSOCIATES/PUBLIC OPINION STRATEGIES Study #13413 — page 12
October 2013 NBC News/Wall Street Journal Survey
Now, thinking about the recent debate over the federal budget…
Q13  As you know, President Obama and the Republicans in Congress have not reached a budget agreement, and this has led to a shutdown of the federal government.

 

Who do you think is more to blame for this shutdown –President Obama or the Republicans in Congress?

Unless I missed it, aren’t the Democrats part of the shutdown? Aren’t THEIR policies as significant as those of the GOP?

 

This poll was constructed to be the “hair on fire”  wake up call for GOP, “the public isn’t supporting the GOP fight.” In truth this is a piece of garbage, a research poll designed to make the GOP look bad and to advance the MSM’s support of Obama and the Democrats.

 

This is a classic case of manipulating the figures to manipulate a political position.

 

Want more info on what the MSM DIDN’T report? The poll is below. As you read it, take a look at just how popular Harry Reid is and how the make up of the respondents is weighed with Democrats.

The Truth About the Boston Marathon Bombing in Pictures

It has been clear for years that the MSM cannot be depended on to tell the American people the truth. They ignore the truth (can you spell Kermit Gosnell?), they slant it, they twist it to fit whatever Obama/progressive narrative is needed at the moment.

The Boston Marathon bombing coverage has been like watching a train wreck in slow motion. Lots of dramatic pictures, “clever” headlines, gory details, and SPECULATION ad nauseam!

Yesterday was a particularly bad day for the clowns calling themselves journalists, particularly at CNN! We were subjected to news conferences and “arrests about to be made” being reported by multiple news outlets that never happened. Oops, is that egg on your collective faces?

All of this pales in comparison to the pictures below. The narrative many are so desperate for us to believe is that a “lone wolf” was responsible or a “right-winger” but they can’t find a credible way to make it stick.

Take a look at these pictures and ask yourself does anything we are being spoon fed by the MSM ring true? No? It looks to me like there are multiple persons who are involved in the bombing. There are over 50 pictures for you to examine, take your time and think about what you are seeing.

BTW, here’s another question to ask yourselves, why it that the Saudi ‘Person Of Interest’ allegedly cleared of charges he was involved with the bombing suddenly being deported?

The Fiscal Cliff for Dummies Explained

The truth is I am simply exhausted… exhausted from Team Obama’s governance style of going from crisis to crisis. It gets to a point where one simply does not care.

In fact, not only don’t I care, I can’t wait for the whole damn bunch of them to take a dive. It can’t happen fast enough.

Let’em all go over the friggin fiscal cliff…OK, Obama first…splat! Next in line Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi (hand in hand please!) …splat!

Oh, we can’t forget the U.S. Navy for pulling one of its aircraft carriers from the Mideast as a way to protest the possible cutbacks brought about from the automatic sequestration cuts. It seems the Navy will lose $4 billion over the next six months, an amount not large enough to be considered spit in the ocean. So, Mr. Panetta hold hands with the Navy officials who put their interests above those of the country…splat!

By the way, did you know that sequestration doesn’t mean ACTUAL cuts, but a slow down in spending? According to the Coalition to Reduce Spending:

It’s important to note that the sequester isn’t cutting real spending. The automatic spending “cuts” are only from the bloated CBO baseline. In other words, the sequester will only slow down the rate of spending increases. That means Pentagon spending will still increase over the next  ten years even with the sequester.

Now, want to really get sick? According to writer Arnold Ahlert in FrontPageMag.Com latest post on all this sequester hysteria, the real number for our national debt is significantly higher than $16 trillion! When all the government’s “off the books” numbers are added in and counted America’s actual debt is $86.8 trillion, or 550% of GDP!!!

Remember when the MSM used to talk about all those “unfunded liabilities?” 

                                                                                                                                                                  Next in line for their trip over the cliff should be all those in the talking heads and icky economists in the MSM, Obama’s cheerleaders and fear-mongers for ginning up what the sequester really means…Mr. Cooper no pushing

Ms. Maddow, Mr. Matthews line up, right behind Paul (I love welfare states) Krugman… are you going to be pushed or do you want to jump (?)...splat, splat…splat!

The truth is, the $85 million that the sequestration “cuts” will impose when compared with our $16 trillion deficit are small indeed. When compared with our actual debt of $86 trillion, these cuts are the equivalent of a speck of sand on the Sahara desert. 

Hey, Mika and Joe Scarborough next in line. Ah, I love the smell of napalm sound of Progressives splattering in the morning! SPLAT! SPLAT!

 

 

 

 

Obama Wants Your 401k & IRA’s to Clean Up His $16 Trillion Dollar Deficit

You can classify this under Cha Ching!

That’s what immediately came to mind when Obama and his team of economic deconstructionists (the ones who believe YOU didn’t create that small business) learned how much retirement assets total in this country.

A 2012 study by the Investment Company Institute found that U.S. retirement assets total $18.5 trillion! The figure is comprised of $3.5 trillion in IRAs and $5.1 trillion in 401(k) plans). CHA CHING!

This target is too tempting for the administration to ignore faced with their spiraling budget deficit with talks it is approaching $20 trillion.

Ironically when these two programs were originally designed it was because it was felt that Americans did not save enough for their own retirement. These plans were put in place to supplement social security and to incentivize us to save. That was before!

Now with the big government socialists in power, current thinking is that responsible savers are denying the federal government the tax revenue it deserves! Insanity doth reigneth in Washington.

If this doesn’t scare the hell out of you, I don’t know what it will take.  According to  Townhall.com, 401k, and IRA owners are first on the Democrats’ radar and may see their plans taken away.

“House Democrats are planning on eliminating those tax breaks and converting the private plans to government-controlled retirement accounts, where they will be at risk for insolvency.”

After listening to the following video it will be clear why my advice is, you should start looking for ways to protect the saving in your IRA or 401k if you’re lucky enough to still have one.

Here’s just one opportunity.

 

Threats to Assassinate Romney Explode on Twitter After 2nd Debate

This is staggering, completely unacceptable and to no one’s surprise COMPLETE SILENCE by the MSM.

If the situation were reversed and Romney supporters were threatening to assassinate Obama, does anyone believe for a nanosecond that these Twitter threats wouldn’t be spread all over the national news?

 

According to multiple sources including InfoWars:

As we reported yesterday, in addition to threats by Obama supporters to riot if Romney wins, innumerable Twitter users are also making direct death threats against Romney.

The primary reason given for Obama supporters wanting to see Romney dead is the fear that he will take away food stamps.

I have two questions. First, what’s Twitter’s policy on threats of assassination of political leaders? Secondly, think any of these Obama supporters/Twitter Assassination Thugs will get a visit from the Secret Service or other governmental agency? See below:

 

 

 

Ambassdor Chris Stevens sacrificed on the altar of Obama’s Mideast appeasment policies

Most disturbing of all is to learn that the US was warned 48 hours before the attacks and did NOTHING to warn this country’s diplomats or to beef up security. One would think that beefing up security on the 11th anniversary of the destruction of the WTC twin towers would be a no-brainer, standard operating procedure, but no. The man who can recite the Muslim call to prayer, the Shahada did no such thing. In fact, most shocking of all is the night of September 11th, when Chris Stevens was known to be missing for five hours, Obama went to bed and slept like a baby!

Barack Obama has the blood of Ambassador Chris Stevens and his staff on his hands.

There simply is no other way to put it. His incoherent policies of appeasement in the Mideast and with our adversaries have left our country weaker and our foreign policies in tatters. Online Der Speigel says flatly that, “Obama’s Middle East Policy Is in Ruins

While the lap dogs in the MSM and Team Obama continue to spin the story that it was a lame 14 minute movie trailer, out on the Internet and on YouTube for months that caused the surprise attacks on the Libyan embassy, the truth behind the attack continues to come out.

Not only wasn’t the attack a surprise, Barack “why do I have to read those boring intelligence reports Obama and the State Department had been warned about the possibility of the attacks. Jay Carney’s response they lacked actionable intelligence” not only doesn’t cut it, it is diametrically opposed to what the Libyans have been saying for days.

Reading from these various sources that emphatically assert the US was warned days in advance of the attacks:

  • The Egyptian General Intelligence Service warned that a radical jihadi group is planning to launch terrorist attacks against the US and Israeli embassies in Cairo. Egypt Independent
  • According to senior diplomatic sources, the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and “lockdown”, under which movement is severely restricted. The Independent
  • Egypt intelligence warns of terror plot against US, Israeli embassies. ynetnews.com
  • Al-Masry Al-Youm reportedly obtained a copy of the September 4 letter, sent to all Egyptian security sectors, warning that Sinai- and Gaza-based Global Jihad cells were planning attacks on the two embassies. The Jerusalem Post
  • Libyan military official claims he met with U.S. diplomats to tell them about the deteriorating security situation and President Mohamed el-Megarif says the attacks were NOT sparked by anti-Islamic video, but by Al Qaeda-connected foreigners. The DailyMailOnLine


I have remained a strong supporter of Hillary Clinton, having watched how the DNC nomination was literally ripped from her hands, stolen from her in 2008. I haven’t always agreed with all of her decisions but I decided to keep my power dry as it were, but not on this time.

Ultimately, the buck stops with Obama, but sadly, Hillary Clinton also has some “splainin to do”.

Ret. Col. David] Hunt told Breitbart News that the new State Department Rules of Engagement for Libya, approved and signed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton since the 2011 fall of Khadafi’s regime, severely compromised the safety and security of murdered Ambassador Stevens and all American diplomatic staff in Libya.

He also stated that the decision not to staff Benghazi with Marines was made by Secretary of State Clinton when she attached her signature to the State Department Rules of Engagement for Libya document. Breitbart News has subsequently learned that under those rules of engagement, Secretary Clinton prohibited Marines from providing security at any American diplomatic installation in Libya.

My loathing and disgust for MSM holds no bounds. They have gone over and above reason, common sense, and good taste (remember that quaint concept) turning themselves inside out to protect their poseur president.

Their relentless attacks on Mitt Romney for having the temerity to question Obama’s policies and the statements originally made by the State Department & on Obama’s website (later repudiated) on the evening of 9/11 remain unrelenting.

Their faux outrage over the timing of Mitt’s comments ring hollow. They practice group think and group speak, incapable of asking a single question as to why our Libyan ambassador and his staff were left to be slaughtered like lambs.

No wonder, as the MSM continues to shill and pimp for Obama, the disdain and hostility for this group grows hourly.
