On A Jewish Holiday

After the mid-term elections, Barack Hussein Obama, not feeling well and concerned about his mortality, goes to consult a psychic about the date of his death.

Closing her eyes and silently reaching into the realm of the future, she finds the answer: “You will die on a Jewish holiday.”

“Which one?” Obama asks nervously.

“It doesn’t matter,” replied the psychic. “Whenever you die, it’ll be a Jewish holiday.”

What a memory!

A woman awakes during the night to find that her husband is
not in bed. She puts on her robe and goes downstairs  to look for him.

She finds him sitting at the kitchen table with a hot cup of
coffee in front of him.

He appears to be in deep thought, just staring at the wall.

She watches as he wipes a tear from his eye and takes a sip
of his coffee.

‘What’s the matter, dear?’ she whispers as she
steps into the room. ‘Why are you down here at
this time of night?’

The husband looks up from his coffee, ‘It’s the 20th
Anniversary of the day we met.’

She can’t believe he has remembered and starts to tear
up.

The husband continues, ‘Do you remember 20 years ago
when we started dating? I was 18 and you were only
16,’ he says solemnly.

Once again, the wife is touched to tears.

‘Yes, I do,’ she replies.

The husband pauses. The words were not coming easily.

‘Do you remember when your father caught us in the back
seat of my car?’

‘Yes, I remember,’ said the wife, lowering herself
into the chair beside him.

The husband continued. ‘Do you remember when he
shoved the shotgun in my face and said, “Either you
marry my daughter or I will send you to prison for 20
years?’

‘I remember that, too,’ she replied softly.

He wiped another tear from his cheek and said, ‘I would
have gotten out today.’

Illegals Paying Taxes? Riiiiight!

Know what burns my ass? That so many people believe the crap Obama is feeding us about illegal aliens getting amnesty and then “paying their taxes” like everyone else.

Why? Because unless they are drug dealers or human traffickers and stupid enough to declare that income, none of them make enough money to actually pay any taxes.

But the IRS code will allow them to file for, get this, “Earned” Income Tax credit, and the Per Child Tax credit, for all their kids, real or imagined.

The reality is, them paying taxes amounts to just more redistribution of wealth via the tax code, from you to them. That started under Clinton when The Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 morphed the tax code into a vehicle for spending programs.

So when Obama sticks his nose in the air at you while he says they’ll be paying taxes, what the slime ball really means is that he’s going to give them thousands of dollars for being here illegally.

President Obama, The Enemy Within

By trying to draw a moral equivalence to the Islamic goons, aka Islamic terrorists of today, President Obama is making a dangerous attempt at rewriting history.

The Crusades was a push back, a fighting back, of an Islamic war. A muslim v cresade battleswar based on Islam, the purpose of which was to take over the world by eliminating any other religion. The Crusades was not a war on Islam. It was a war for survival against the Islamic goons of the time. In Islam, their religion is their government. When the battle was won, it was over. Christians didn’t continue killing “non believers.”

By drawing this moral equivalence, Obama says “that’s not who we are.” Sorry Barack O, but standing our ground and not succumbing to Islamic goons, or Nazi Germany, or Imperial Japan, IS who we are. We will save ourselves from any enemy, and destroy the threat. (And we’ll even do the same for other countries who can’t do it on their own.) So from this standpoint, his rewriting history is setting us up for another attack.

He is trying to assuage us into believing that what the Islamic goons are doing is no big deal . This is clear by the fact that the president won’t even use the words Islamic terrorist to describe the enemy.

An enemy that resurfaced in the last 30 or 40 years. And having a Commander in Chief that refuses to fight our enemy, and refuses to even identify our enemy, means only one of two things. Neither bode well for the United States.

He is either hopelessly ignorant of what is really happening, OR, he is brilliantly paving the way for more victories by the Islamic goons, more attacks in our own country. There is a third possibility. It’s sort of like voting “present.” That no matter what, he is not going to answer the war that radical Islam is waging on us while he is in The White House.  But rather, will leave that up to his successor. The spinmeisters have an acceptable phrase for such cowardice, strategic pause.  He is the anti-war president after all. He ran on that.  In any case, he is on the wrong side. An enemy from within.

The racial spin on this is but a distraction from the enemy we face. This enemy wants to kill us based only on their “religion” and it’s high time we get on our high horse and take it to them. Again.

Senate Dems Shut Down DHS For Illegals

Senate Democrats vote to shut down Department of Homeland Security. Because . . . continuing the flow of illegal aliens is more important than the nation’s security.

Besides all that, Democrats are right in lock step with their leader, Barack Obama, for their lack of fidelity to the Constitution that they took an oath to protect, and defend. Their actions on this budget item is proof of it.

Obama’s Energy Rope-a-Dope

President Obama announced today that he is opening up some areas for oil and gas development. Some in the Gulf of Mexico, some in the Atlantic. Alaska, not so much. Alaska needs more study. ‘More study’ is political-speak for ‘it ain’t gonna happen.’

Nevertheless, the President seemed to echo what he said in his State of the Union Address in January.

But to create more of these clean energy jobs, we need more production, more efficiency, more incentives. And that means building a new generation of safe, clean nuclear power plants in this country. (Applause.) It means making tough decisions about opening new offshore areas for oil and gas development. (Applause.) It means continued investment in advanced biofuels and clean coal technologies. (Applause.) And, yes, it means passing a comprehensive energy and climate bill with incentives that will finally make clean energy the profitable kind of energy in America. (Applause.)

And today, President Obama said . . .

But the bottom line is this: given our energy needs, in order to sustain economic growth, produce jobs, and keep our businesses competitive, we’re going to need to harness traditional sources of fuel even as we ramp up production of new sources of renewable, homegrown energy.

Don’t think for a minute that the President is serious about drilling. Just like he isn’t serious about nuclear energy. Seen any new refineries being built? Seen any new oil drilling going on? Seen any new nuclear plants being built? NO! What we have seen is ANWR and Bristol Bay being held hostage, and the closing of the Yucca Mountain Nuclear Waste Repository. With no place to put nuclear waste, how many new nuclear plants will be built?

Today’s show at Andrews Air Force Base was a political rope-a-dope. His goal is far from using and getting more of our own energy resources. His goal is cap and trade legislation that will do exactly the opposite of what he said he wanted to do today. It will kill economic growth and jobs, depress business, and raise costs. We will pay more for electric and all other products because of tax pressure put on the industries that produce them. And in the end, the redistribution of wealth in the name of social justice.

NPR is trying to make sense out of Obama’s statement. Here’s what they came up with . . .

Much of the speculation for the administration’s reasoning has been on the need to get Republican votes for Obama’s climate legislation. Sens. John Kerry (D-MA), Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Joe Lieberman (I-CT) are trying to hammer out a bipartisan climate bill, but Graham is getting no GOP backing on this, and Graham himself has said that he couldn’t support a bill that “doesn’t have off-shore drilling in a meaningful way.”

The New York Times’ John Broder writes that today’s proposal by Obama could “help win political support for comprehensive energy and climate legislation,” . . .

He is repeating his SOTU line in order to get support from Republicans for his cap and trade agenda. Combine this with Obamacare and the American Dream will be history. America will have its newest founding father.

Now consider this. The above article was posted 5 years ago. Have you noticed any progress? Have you noticed his words turning in to action? Now in the beginning of 2015, President Obama is refusing to give the go-ahead for the Keystone XL Pipeline.

Obama Declares War On ANWR

Declaring the oil-rich coastal plain, which was set aside for oil exploration and development in the first place, a “wilderness area,” Obama is effectively preventing any access to it for the purposes it was originally intended. Oil and gas exploration and development.

Time for a refresher on ANWR.   ARCTIC NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE 101

Shutting down energy resources by declaring wilderness areas is nothing new where Democrat Presidents are concerned. Bill Clinton  shut the low-sulfur coal industry completely down by declaring all of it (1.8 million acres) in the United States a “monument.”

For Clinton though, it was more sinister. It was a twofer for Clinton. By declaring the lands where all our low-sulfur coal exists in the United States a “monument,” he hands a world monopoly to a big campaign contributor of his, the Chinese Rhiady family,

Now a quick mineralogical lesson. There are only two known low-sulphur coal reserves in the world, one of which is under the land in Utah that was blocked off by Clinton. And the other is in China. Thanks to Bill Clinton, the U.S. energy sector can buy low-sulphur coal from China, because now, they have to.

SOTU 2015, His Illness

Media translation service, by me. What we saw in Barack Obama‘s State of the Union show Tuesday night was his admission of his failed policies. When you hear him say there’s still “more work to do,” he wants you to think he’s making progress, and hasn’t stopped yet.

OK, so after 6 years, the middle class and poor have seen their family income fall. The number of people working (labor participation rate) is at the level it was during the Carter administration. As a result, the number of people on food stamps and other government welfare programs are at an all time high. All while he’s trying to add millions more illegal aliens to compete against the middle class and poor for the few jobs there may be.

His mental illness really shone brightly when he took credit for lower gasoline prices. Because he had nothing to do with it, sort of.

He had nothing to do with the increase on the supply side. He did have something to do with the decrease in demand on the demand side. Weak economic activity, high long-term unemployment, falling family incomes all a result of his administration’s attempt at transforming America have the effect of decreasing demand.

Gas and oil production on federal lands are down. Not up. Gas and oil production on private lands are up, and that’s where the increase supply (and jobs boom) is coming from. The media seems to have forgotten that he and his energy secretary said they want the price of gas to be like that in Europe, over $9 and $10 per gallon. And that will help the middle class? It is Obama standing in the way of the XL Pipeline, by insisting on where the oil going through it can be sold. As though he thinks that Canada’s gas and oil belongs to him.

If he cared for the middle class more than his vision to destroy, er “transform” America, he would stop doing what he’s been doing.

Boehner Calls Out President

House Speaker Representative John Boehner (R-OH) closes debate on his party’s fifth and final amendment to H.R. 240, a funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security, by noting 20 times President Obama has mentioned respecting the Constitution.

Nice speech. Too bad it took 6 years for anyone to say it on the House floor. Should have heard this 20 times before.

Question is, why is this not on the mainstream media? You know if it was Nancy Pelosi calling out a different president, it would be out there every day for a week.

We’ve heard Speaker Boehner say good stuff before, before elections, then act contrary to what he had said after the election.

Time will tell whether Boehner is finally serious about the conservative agenda he was elected to keep, or this is but a bone thrown to disaffected conservatives and, will find a way to pass Obama’s agenda while appearing to fight it.

We’ve seen this movie.

Belly up to the counter. Politics are on the menu and Ross is on the grill.
