Obama “Recovery” Hurting The Poor

Words have meanings. And the notion that there is a recovery going on in this country is simply absurd. It’s time to call it what it is. It’s not a recovery but a ‘decovery.’ Ok, I made that word up. How about we just call it a recession. We’ve had our two consecutive quarters of a shrinking GDP. So you have to just ponder if this kind of non-recovery recovery is just what The One has had in mind all along?

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has two stats that point to how this so-called recovery is working. The CPI (Consumer Price Index) is going up, while average hourly earnings continue to fall. It’s a double whammy on the backs of “the poor.” No matter the color of their skin.

Most of the price increases are in foodstuffs. So the next time you hear a Democrat race baiter claim that Republicans expect Blacks to “vote against their best interest,” ask him (or her) how rising food prices and falling family incomes are in the best interest of Blacks? Or the best interest of anyone for that matter? Call it what it is. Another leg of the administration’s Poor Tax.

Global Warming Hysterics And Other Cartoons

Was perusing a lefty website hosted by a big climate change (or is it global warming?) the-earth-is-burning-up liberal Mike Papantonio. It’s a good site to visit to see what the wacko left is up to. And get a measure of their level of desperation.

Featured in this article is an artist’s rendering of what some cities might look like after a (wait for it) twelve-foot rise in sea level. Personally, I’d like to see the 25 foot version. Nevertheless, the purpose is to scare the daylights out of you based on a cartoonist’s rendering with a dash of science fiction.

Also in the news are these two articles. Antarctic ice is melting at record levels, never to recover again AND, Antarctic ice is growing at record levels. What?

Now for a sixth grade science class experiment. Ready? Fill up a glass with ice and water. Lots of ice. Fill it to the top of the glass. Now leave it at room temperature so the ice will melt. If you believe Mike Papantonio and the wacko left, the cup will overflow, similar to how the sea level will allegedly rise.

I’ll bet you a cheesesteak the cup does not overflow after all the ice has melted. Obama said he would lower the sea level. What a genius.

VA And Government-Run Health Care

Remember when proponents of the so-called Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) proffered the notion that Obamacare wasn’t anything new. That we already had government-run health care, citing the VA as the example. And that’s running so well. (I know, but that’s what they said.)

Not so well according to latest news report about veterans literally dying to see a doctor because the wait is too long. Some say the wait is so long because of veterans coming back from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Well, if that relatively small number of “patients” overwhelms the VA, just think for a moment how adding 40 million new “patients” will affect wait time throughout the country. And never mind the lies about your premium cost going down and keeping your plan, doctor, and hospital. Looking at government-run health care from a purely numbers angle, there won’t be better or faster care. And for you Obamacare proponents, this VA scandal should prove it.

No Free Pass In Politics

One thing is certain. If it happens in Washington, or anywhere there is an elected official, it is political. Politician, politics, political. Get it?

That’s not to say that anything or everything political is bad, good, or acceptable. The difference between what’s bad and what’s good is the legal and moral aspects of the action.

pelosi_orificeThe political Left as represented by Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA-12) and  Elijah cummings_benghazi_hearingCummings (D-Md.) believe that matters like the Benghazi investigation is just politics, and not worthy of attention. She says that the investigation is a “distraction.” A distraction from Obama’s failed policies elsewhere I suppose.

But here’s the difference between what is a distraction and what is not. Democrats had Tom Delay attacked and prosecuted for doing political actions that were legal. In short, they were successful in criminalizing legal political conduct. No one was killed or injured. And DeLay paid millions to defend himself to the end of having the case finally dismissed. Pelosi and Obama weren’t saying ‘oh, that’s just political, there’s no there there.’

Where Benghazi is concerned, the regime used political power and influence to an immoral, if not illegal, end. To this day, no one knows what the Commander in Chief was doing when Americans were fighting for their lives in Benghazi.

What we do know is, the story we were told by him and his surrogates in the State Department turns out to have been false. It wasn’t a mistake that the story about the alleged video was said to be the cause of the attack. That was the lie created to shift responsibility from the regime and the State Department to some poor shlep in California. That was the immoral political calculation the regime made to keep the truth from the American public (another immoral political calculation) long enough to get through the upcoming presidential election. And that’s why the investigation into what happened before, during, and after the Benghazi attack is important. See the difference?

To quote the now infamous Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, “It is a subject that we are absolutely required to explore.

Secretary of State Clinton And Boko Haram

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with Chief of Staff Huma Mahmood Abedin

Now that the Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram has kidnapped nearly 300 teenage girls, Christian girls, from school where they were taking their final exams, questions are popping up about how this group is still not on the list of terrorist organizations by the State Department. The answer to that lies in the State Department under the leadership of Hillary Clinton.

What Clinton didn’t mention was that her own State Department refused to place Boko Haram on the list of foreign terrorist organizations in 2011, after the group bombed the UN headquarters in Abuja. The refusal came despite the urging of the Justice Department, the FBI, the CIA, and over a dozen Senators and Congressmen.

One of the closest sources of Islamic sympathizers (aside from the President himself) in the Obama administration was Hillary Clinton’s Chief of Staff, Muslim Brotherhood sister Huma Mahmood Abedin, aka Anthony Weiner’s wife. President Obama and Huma Abedin are soul mates when it comes to appeasing Islamists, even terrorist ones, and the Muslim Brotherhood. Adding another terrorist group to the list of terrorist groups around the world would have contradicted the regime at a time when they are publicly saying that alQaeda is on the run. A purely political decision that cost American, and now hundreds of kids, lives.

AlQaeda is on the run. Towards us. Not away from us. 

You needn’t look any further to explain candidate Obama’s apology tour in Egypt and their Arab Spring (turned Arab Winter), the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood there, the devolution of Libya and Syria, leading to the death of our Ambassador and three other Americans in Benghazi, and replacing bad governments with alQaeda and their affiliates than Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

It’s A Threesome, Establishment GOP, Dems, U.S. Chamber

Gov. Palin was right to call the GOP establishment for gloating over recent primary battles. Instead, they ought to be trying to figure out what they need to do to gain their support. For without it, the Dems will prevail, and the Republican party and our country will become irrelevant in coming years. Of course, this presumes that the GOP establishment is not in bed with the Democrats on crony capitalism like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is.

Either for lack of the intestinal fortitude it takes to stand on principle, or the spigot of corporate money flowing their way has overcome them, it is the GOP establishment that has thrown away the conservative principles that they once held. The very same principles that gave them the record victory in the House and other elected positions in all 50 states.

The Chamber of Commerce, or the Chamber of Crony Capitalism as Mark Levin calls them, has made it clear whose side they are on. As if to say that the tea party is not pro-business, they are putting their money on candidates that will support the cronyism of the day. Economic freedom and the country be damned.

At the time, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce blamed tea party lawmakers for the economic damage caused by the government shutdown and vowed to pour money into campaigns to elect pro-business moderates against tea party candidates. The group said it would spend at least $50 million on campaigns to support centrist GOP candidates in 2014.
