It’s Obama’s Failure, Not Guns

Since the Orlando terrorist attack last weekend, the Obama theme ‘not to let a crisis go to waste’ has kicked in.

Don’t fall for this meme.

With Republicans and the National Rifle Association gun lobby under pressure to respond to the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history, Trump said he would meet with the NRA to discuss ways to block people on terrorism watch or no-fly lists from buying guns.

No. The response is, Obama’s failure to prosecute the war on terror has made us victims in our own cities. And the pressure belongs on him and Democrats. Not on Republicans and the National Rifle Association.

  • His failure to protect our borders.
  • His failure to enforce immigration laws,
  • his releasing of GITMO prisoners to return to the battlefield,
  • his insistence on scooping up thousands of Syrian refugees to bring them here, some of who are and will be (according to his own security apparatus) terrorists embedded among them.
  • His failure to keep tabs on terrorists he had his hands on, like the Boston bombers, the Fort Hood shooter, the San Bernardino shooters, and the Orlando shooter. All terrorists, all on the FBI’s radar, all on their list, and all let go. Credit Obama’s CVE program for that.
  • His plan to fight Islamic extremism is not to investigate Islamic extremism. That’s his program called the Countering Violent Extremism program.
  • And the media doesn’t ask why.

And that doesn’t even include giving Iran $1.5 Billion dollars to fund Hamas and Hezbollah and to expand their nuclear weapons program, or funding the Palestinian Authority and Hamas with hundreds of thousands of dollars each year, so they can attack Israel.

To deflect his failure to keep us safe, his response, is the same as Tyranny-vs-Libertyalways. Not to let a crisis go to waste. That’s what this is about. In this case, he makes the case for taking away our rights to defend ourselves, a constitutional right, for his inability to protect us from terrorism. In other words, to protect us from the terrorist invasion that he is creating, his response is to disarm law-abiding citizens. This might makes sense if you are a Mullah in Iran, or an ISIS terrorist. But it does make sense to Barack Hussein Obama.

Besides all that, there is no constitutional right to fly on an airplane. There is a constitutional right to protect oneself with a firearm. In fact, the right was intended to protect oneself from a tyrannical government. Not a deer or a duck. And never has this been as imperative since the forming of the Bill of Rights when we broke from the tyrannical Crown of King George III.

UPDATED: 6/16/2016, Countering Violent Extremism program added, explains our ineptness in fighting terrorism here.

2016 Election, Not American Idol

How bad the low information crowd, the media, and especially the current republican wing of the Democrat Party (that would be the current Republican leadership and Republican Establishment), are clinging to the “unfavorable” ratings of the presumptive Republican candidate for president Donald J. Trump?

We tried electing an American idol in Barack Hussein O. In fact, despite any positive results, he was re-elected.  The country, the working poor, and those not working, and the middle class are seeing their future, their incomes, their jobs all shrinking.

Hillary Clinton is running on more of the same. Trump is running on change, not hope. The people who chose him over 16 other candidate feel the same way and, feel that he can deliver.

Personally, the “unfavorable” ratings hyped by the media don’t mean a thing to me. Your mileage may vary. I think the American people who support Trump realize that turning this ship around is going to take someone bold enough to lead. Between the media and fellow republicans doing all they can to elect Hillary, it is going to take someone like Trump to turn the Washington establishment upside down. And if that portrays him as unfavorable, then so be it. We’re electing a Commander-in-Chief, not a vagina or an American Idol.

Clinton E-Mail Deposition, Judge Rules To Cover-Up

Fascinating to watch just what a cover-up looks like. Cover-up combined with a major case of CYA. How’s that go again? If you have nothing to hide, just answer the questions. All of them. This video is a re-enactment of the deposition of Cheryl Mills, who was the a lawyer for both the Clinton’s. Representing Bill Clinton during the impeachment chapter of his presidency, and, was Hillary’s Chief of Staff while she was Sec. of State.

 
The reason that this is a re-enactment, instead of the real audio/video recording is because the judge, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, has sealed them from the public until such time as he may change his mind. What? Ostensibly it seems, not until after the November election. Here is his order on release of the audio/video public record.

Notice how this judge is obviously making political, not legal, judgements in his decision. And where is the cacophony of media analysis and calls for this judge’s impeachment like we are hearing about the judge who gave a rapist a 6 mo. jail term? Like the judge hearing the Trump U. case is politically tied to his party, his LaRaza affiliated lawyer club, and the La Raza agenda. Something, to be honest, he should recuse himself from that case for. Not because it has anything to do with Trump University, but because he is an advocate for everything that Trump as president wants to stop, where illegal immigration is concerned.

Judge Sullivan is inserting his political beliefs into his legal obligation as a judge. That’s why it is our/your obligation to spread the word about not only Judge Sullivan enabling, but the extent Hillary Clinton’s staffers go to shield her and cover their own butts. When the mainstream media won’t, the alternative media must.

ACA Fail, On Schedule

The collapse of the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, was predicted. Basically because it was designed to fail.

Three years ago we learned that, in order to get insurance companies to cover the extra mandated coverages, the act (aka taxpayers) would reimburse the insurance companies for their losses for three years. The gamble was that by that time, so many young and healthy people would enroll to cover their costs. Well, that didn’t happen.

Now, because they will no longer be reimbursed for their losses, the insurance companies are pulling out. And those staying with it are raising their rates accordingly.

The failure of Obamacare to deliver on its promises, and the insurance carriers pulling out, paves the way for what Democrats have been longing for, and something that Americans have rejected ever since it was first proposed 73 years ago by John Dingell Sr. in 1943. Single-payer health care. Or to put it another way, Medicare for all. The government can’t take proper care of veterans. They can’t deliver affordable health care for the ten percent of Americans that had no health care. So why would anyone believe they can take care of 320 million of us?

This presidential election will be the deciding point. The Republican sides wants to fix it with private sector solutions. The Democrat side wants to exacerbate the problem regardless if it makes health care worse.

Walls, Not Bridges

Listening to the political Left, like HIllary Clinton and lefty talkers like Alan Combs, you would think the flow of illegals into this country has improved. If by improved you mean decreased.

They’re now claiming a net zero flow. Even if true, which it is not, they are not claiming that illegals are no longer coming into the country. So that’s supposed to make us feel safe and secure?

Here are a few things a wall and enforcement would do.

  • Save lives, from convicted criminals and human traffickers
  • End bunji deportation, once deported, stay deported
  • Prevent terrorists and ISIS from walking in.

The surge of illegal and unaccompanied children is ramping up again. This summer it is worse than in 2014. Not better.

Yuma, Arizona is on our southern border. Far from Washington DC and New York City.  Here’s a couple articles from 5/28/2016, that is in the news down there.

Sexual Predator Nabbed at the Border,

On Tuesday, Agents from the Deming Station were patrolling an area east of Columbus, N.M. when they were alerted to five subjects who crossed the international boundary from Mexico. The area is a known illegal immigrant and drug smuggling corridor.

During processing it was discovered that 34-year-old Mexican national, Juan Antonio Canales Martinez, had a prior conviction for “Sex with a Minor” in California, along with other criminal charges

 Smugglers abandon women and children in the brush

U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Rio Grande Valley Sector saved the lives of a man, a women and a 3 year old who were abandoned by their smugglers in two separate incidents in the last 24 hours.

“These heartless smugglers left a woman and child helpless and lost” said Chief Patrol Agent Manuel Padilla Jr. “this reinforces the message from our Border Safety Initiative, “smugglers view little regard for the safety of migrants.”

Bridges are not what is needed. Despite what Hillary Clinton keeps saying.  We already have “bridges.”  And they’re not working to keep illegals, terrorists, and human traffickers out.

Bridge that looks like a wall.

On top of the human cost described above, there are also social costs incurred with illegal immigration and sanctuary cities.

  • Fewer jobs for Americans, while record unemployment persists
  • Depressed wages for Americans because of cheap labor of illegals, enabled by lack of enforcement of current immigration laws
  • Overburdened health care facilities and schools.
  • Poor service and higher cost to taxpayers in servicing people who don’t belong here in the first place.
  • Cost of educating illegals $1.2 Billion per year.

Putting Americans first must be our priority. Starting with enforcing immigration laws and re-establishing our southern border. After all, protecting the American people, not illegals, is the main responsibility given to the federal government. It is the oath all elected officials have taken. There’s nothing controversial about that.

IG, Hillary “Broke Rules”

News accounts of the State Department Inspector General’s report about Hillary Clinton’s handling of email and her email server focus on “rules” being broken by former Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. It is clear the IG went to great lengths to write it that way. Bottom line is, the rules were written to conform with the law. She broke the law. But so far no one of any consequence is saying that.

But, the “security review” isn’t over yet. And her old buddy Terry McCauliffe and the Clinton Crime Family Foundation are now part of the investigation. According to FBI Director James Comey, the FBI does’t do security reviews. They investigate criminal activity.

I don’t think she can laugh this one off. She certainly can’t claim a vast right-wing conspiracy. This is Obama’s State Dept. and Obama’s FBI. Something smelling a little fishy?  Smells like the way Obama does paybacks. He could put an end to this if he wanted to.

To the point that the IG’s report shows “consistency” with earlier Secretaries, the only consistency there is that personal emails were exchanged (on government approved servers). Hillary is the only Secretary who not only didn’t use the servers authorized by the law, she used her own server, authorized by no one but herself. There is no equivalency there.  And that’s not a political misrepresentation. That’s just the facts.

Also not political, is the fact that she told everyone in her State Department not to speak to the IG.  She and her “team” refused to “cooperate” with the Inspector General from the Department she was once the head of. Had she been put under oath, that’s called pleading the 5th.

Below is the IG’s report.

Clinton’s Email Server

The FBI has interviewed Huma Abedin (aka Mrs. Anthony Weiner), Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Cheif of Staff, as part of a federal investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state.

This is the part of the entire investigation that just floors me.

The FBI and Justice Department have been investigating whether sensitive information that flowed through Clinton’s email server was mishandled. (emphasis added)

Why she hasn’t already faced charges for the obvious is beyond me.  The obvious being the ‘Clinton’s email server’ part of the investigation. Never mind for a moment how much secret information has already been lifted by hackers or destroyed by her or people under her, or people contracted by her. What has been known from the start was that she violated the law when she set up her own server for her official State Department business instead of the secure government servers for her department’s use.

The longer this drags on, the more it looks like a case is being built to exonerate her instead of bringing what is already known to a grand jury for an indictment.

Establishment, Step Aside

I’m getting pretty disgusted with the way the primaries are being covered. Which is, more like a horse race, concentrating on who is ahead, who is falling behind, instead of platform/policy oriented.

The other thing that republicans (who don’t like Trump or Cruz) are talking about is how (they say) neither of them are electable. Because, they say, of their “unfavorable” polling.

That, I find to be especially amusing, given elections results of 2008 and 2012. McCain and Romney. Both losers. Not only losers, but losers to a community organizer with no executive experience. No experience in anything beyond community organizing. Romney couldn’t beat Obama after four years of a leaderless president.

It’s time to ignore the RNC and their talking heads about who is best to run against the Democrats. After these last eight years, how could going with the will of the people be so bad? Embrace it, accept it, and back the winner. The arrogance of these party operatives to presume that the American people don’t know any better should be their ticket out of public office. They’ve forgotten who they work for.

2016, It’s Still Bush’s Fault

In year eight of the Obama administration, it is amazing to watch the Democratic candidates on the campaign trail.

They both say how terrible the economy has treated Americans. And the town-hall regular citizens complain to them about unemployment, high cost of health care, etc.. And neither of them lay the blame on the Obama regime. It’s as if he was not in charge for the last seven years.

Then you hear President Obama talk about how wonderful his recovery and economic policies have been. Especially Obamacare. And how he has created a gazillion jobs.

Listening to it all can subject you to political whiplash. Watch the candidates, and watch President Obama. The economy is good. The economy sucks. The economy is good. The economy sucks. See how dangerous that can be for one’s psyche?

When asked why two-thirds of Americans still think the country is on the wrong track, President Obama has an explanation for it. For “some people” (that would be two-thirds of Americans), it’s all Bush’s fault.

Here’s the kicker.  “There’s still more we can do.” Like “investing” in infrastructure and education.  Isn’t that what that $787 Billion stimulus bill in 2008 was for? And the $302 Billion more two years ago? The same old RBI line. Roads, Bridges, and Infrastructure.

Obama’s explanation . . .

[Wages and incomes] haven’t gone up as quickly as people had been accustomed to in previous generations. There are a lot of reasons for that. Global competition. Technology. You know, corporate practices have changed. In some cases tax policies that I’d like to see changed, and I’ve tried to push Congress to change have made a difference.

“Haven’t gone up as quickly as people had been accustomed to?” You mean like when there was a competent leader in The White House who understood free-market economics? Wages and incomes have dropped.

Why is that? According to the president, it’s because of global competition, technology, and, corporate practices have changed. Spoken like a true ignoramus on free-market economics and capitalism. In his world, which Ms. Sinclair refused to penetrate, companies and industries are not supposed to protect their interests. They’re not supposed to react to market or government pressures. They are supposed to do what the government wants them to do, including pay higher taxes and spend shareholder’s investments where he says they should. That’s economic fascism.

You can’t spend your way into prosperity, nor borrow your way out of debt. Winston Churchill understood economics, “We contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.”

It’s disgusting to see financial reporter Nicole Sinclair let Obama get away with his excuse without challenge and, in light of more than doubling the national debt, sit there and say “we need to spend more.” Zero accountability for the last seven years and 10 trillion dollars (and climbing) national debt. It is typical of the way the media has given this president a pass throghout his presidency.

‘Globe’ Front Page, Faux Or Real?

The media’s anti-Trump syndrome manifested itself last week when the Boston Globe put out what they deemed a fear & smear piece against current GOP front-runner Donald J. Trump. They projected their fears in various headlines a year from now if Trump were to be President. In other words, fake news like, “Deportations Begin!” “Economy in Tailspin!” “Wall Construction Halted Because of Lack of Funds.”

With all the push-back from the media, and even from the GOP, aligned against Trump and Ted Cruz, why do you suppose there has been zip, zero, nada pushback from the media or from anyone in political power for what the Democrat Party and President Obama is doing — IS DOING, not “is going to,” is doing?

The people at thepeoplescube.com have answered that with their own version of a Boston Globe front page. The difference is, these headlines are not made up. They are real and, have never been seen. And, they are what the GOP candidates ought to be talking about.
