The flooding in Tennessee has taken 30 lives so far. Nashville is under water. The inaction by the Obama administration is simply astounding.

And just why do you think that is?

The boys at Red State Update call for help from fellow Americans. Not from Washington.

A sure sign of spring is when the girls start showing their navels.

Still An Issue Of Trust For Obama Administration

Now that the dust from the terrorist car bombing attack in Manhattan has settled, and the oil spill talking points are down, all while the flooding in Tennessee is being ignored, what else has the media not been telling you about when it comes to the Obama administration?

Having removed all possibilities offered by giving the benefit of doubt to President Obama, let’s examine the actions of the community organizer-turned Commander in Chief since last month. Time has come to hold him accountable for the disparity between his words and his deeds.

Missed from the news pages and the evening ‘news’ was this little ditty.Our honest leadership and open government at work.

The economic report released last week by Health and Human Services, which indicated that President Barack Obama’s health care “reform” law would actually increase the cost of health care and impose higher costs on consumers, had been submitted to the office of HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius more than a week before the Congressional votes on the bill, according to career HHS sources, who added that Sebelius’s staff refused to review the document before the vote was taken.

“The reason we were given was that they did not want to influence the vote,” says an HHS source. “

Which is actually the point of having a review like this.To put it another way, telling Americans and Congress the truth would be contrary to President Obama’s agenda. So the truth loses.

And today the Congressional Budget Office says President Barack Obama’s new health care law could potentially add at least $115 billion more to government health care spending over the next 10 years.

Long before the so-called health reform bill was voted on, I was willing to accept that Obama was just wrong in his assertion that his bill would reduce costs. I was even willing to believe him (well, not really) when he said that he wouldn’t sign a bill that wouldn’t reduce cost and increase care. But when put to the wall, this administration is all about the means justifying the end. Truth, openness, and accountability was the smokescreen used to usurp nearly 20 percent of the private sector economy and the health care decisions of all Americans, whether they like it or not.

We now know that none of what the President promised will happen. Ditto with the so-called ‘stimulus’ package of out-of-sight deficit spending keeping unemployment below eight percent. If the President was an honest man, he would hold a news conference and admit his ‘mistake’ and call for the revocation of The Affordable Care Act and hold true to his word that no bill of that magnitude will ever again pass on a simple majority, bribery notwithstanding.

Then there is the divider-in-chief’s comments on the new law in Arizona that gives state and local police the same powers of the federal government when it comes enforcing the law as relates to border crashers, aka illegal aliens.

Anyone who characterizes the Arizona law as an immigration law is mis-characterizing it. The federal government has immigration laws that cover how people immigrate to the United States legally. Arizona has given State authorities the same tools to identify those in the country illegally as those used by the federal government. Their law has nothing to do with immigration laws.

It was in late April at a campaign-style event in Iowa when Obama said, “Now, suddenly, if you don’t have your papers and you took your kid out to get ice cream, you’re going to get harassed.” That simply and factually is not true. It is a deliberate prevarication of the facts, or more simply, a lie. Standard practice for a community organizer who looks at illegal aliens as undocumented democrats. But deplorable practice for the President of the United States.

The Arizona law prohibits profiling to ascertain citizenship, same as the federal law prohibits profiling. What the President knows, and is deliberately misleading to inflame emotions in the Latino community, is that (like the federal law) any interrogation such as asking for identification may only come AFTER a lawful contact with a person such as being stopped in the commission of a crime, a traffic stop, or some other reason that an officer may lawfully come in contact with an individual. It may not happen solely on the color of their skin.

And where is the President when it comes to responding to Mexico’s President Felipe Calderon who said . . .

Criminalizing immigration, which is a social and economic phenomena, this way opens the door to intolerance, hate, and discrimination.” Calderon told a meeting with Mexican immigrant groups.

“My government cannot and will not remain indifferent when these kinds of policies go against human rights,” Calderon said, adding that he would bring up the new law when he meets with Obama next month during an official visit to Washington.

Like his predecessor Vicente Fox, Calderon often refers to illegal aliens who are Mexicans as a migration phenomenon. Breaking U.S. immigration laws is not a human right Mr. Calderon. Something else to ponder President Calderon, people immigrate, animals migrate.

I have no problem with people who want to come to America to live and prosper, when done legally. And if steps are not taken now to insure that America remains American, then I apologize to our future generations for the chaos they’ll be going through. There’s nothing wrong or un-American about this country being a so-called melting pot. What’s wrong is to let the pot melt.


Female Genital Mutilation Creeping To America

Women are losing the war against barbarism right here in the United States. Who knew that the American Academy of Pediatrics, ‘dedicated to the health of all children,’ would be a proponent of this?

You probably didn’t notice because we don’t have the streets filled with “Chop-Chop Squares” a la Saudi Arabia.

But don’t let your general vision crowd out the sub rosa nod and wink toward the disgusting disfigurement officially sanctioned by Muslims around the world . . . and now by the official association of America’s pediatricians, which has now given its own nod and wink toward  a “lesser” version of female genital mutilation.

Oh, and note the use of the words “Asian” and “African” as euphemisms for what it really means: Muslim


Boat Owners Join Oil Recovery Fight

Called the Vessels of Opportunity Program, boat captains everywhere can help to remedy the oil spill going on at Deepwater Horizon. Where Florida’s coast is concerned, the oil has not reached the shores yet. But it has already hit the charter boat and commercial fishing industries, including of course the seafood distributors, all over the Gulf coast.

The problem is simple, there is no fishing business for the fishing industry until the oil leak is fixed. And there are not enough BP and government vessels available for the extended use that is anticipated.

BP is offering $2000/day for captains in the program. It helps them with some income and helps to save the coast and Gulf waters from further oil pollution.

Participation requires specialized training. Information about participating is on their website at Deepwater Horizon Response. The list of training sessions all along the Gulf Coast is below.

Cape Wind, Nation’s First Wind Energy Project

After only 10 years (only?) of obstructing from politically connected democrats in the State of Massachusetts like the Kennedys past and present, the Cape Wind project met its last hurdle when on April 28, 2010, U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar announced his approval of Cape Wind with a favorable Record of Decision for the project to be constructed on Horseshoe Shoal in Nantucket Sound off the coast of Massachusetts.

This marks not only a first for wind energy in the United States, but real progress in green energy and green energy jobs. The project’s approval also means a boost for Pensacola’s GE who will be manufacturing hundreds of turbine generators for Cape Wind.

Times Square Car Bomber

Like the Christmas day airline bomber, we have another successful attack and unsuccessful detonation.  Counting the shootings at an Army recruiting office, the Ft. Hood shootings, and the Christmas Day airline bomber, we now have 4 successful attacks on our homeland in the last 12 months. Lucky for us, two bombs failed to detonate.

Screen capture from a Times Square web cam below. The suspect vehicle is the black SUV at the bottom of the picture.

Illustrating the level of denial of the war on terror and just who the enemy is, and/or the extent to which some in the administration and progressives are quick to seek political advantage at the expense of Americans in Times Square by positing the notion that the perpetrator was likely a tea party person or some right winger who doesn’t like Obamacare.

According to Bloomberg . . .

“If I had to guess 25 cents, this would be exactly that: homegrown, or maybe a mentally deranged person, or somebody with a political agenda that doesn’t like the health care bill or something. It could be anything,” Bloomberg told Couric. “There is no evidence here of a conspiracy, there is no evidence that it’s tied into anything else. It looks like an amateurish job done by at least one person,” he said.

And just to make you feel safe,   Janet Napolitano, the homeland security secretary — described it as a “one-off” saying ‘there was no evidence of a continued threat to the city.’  That’s good news. What? Did bin Ladin and alQaeda give up? New Yorkers no longer have to worry about another attack?

What are your anonymous thoughts? Here’s a totally politically incorrect poll. On this poll you can check more than one box.  May want to keep it handy the next time we are attacked.

As you may have noticed, I’m having some technical difficulties with the blog. I hope to have things put back together by the time there are 26 hours in a day, if not sooner.
