While you were out Christmas Shopping

What has Obama been up to since he got the memo from America that we don't want his policies?

TSA Groping of airline passengers

Gays in the Military

13-month extension of Unemployment Compensation

START Treaty

Dream Act

Omnibus Spending Bill

FCC regulation of internet free speech

Death Panels

One thing you can say about Barack Obama is that he's no Bill Clinton. After forcing his way on an unwilling victim, Bubba would at least say, "you'd better put some ice on that."

Massive Increase

President Obama, urging Democrats to get in line to vote for his tax and spending compromise, warned that failure to pass the bill would hit low and middle income Americans with "massive tax increases."

True enough, but that means President Bush's "tax cuts for the rich" were also "massive" tax cuts for low and middle income Americans. Moreover, Obama knew it all along. No surprise there, but the fact that Obama is willing to say it aloud demonstrates the contempt in which he holds the intelligence of the American People. He assumes we are too dim witted to notice.

Two Percent Growth is Good News?

On the eve of the election, in which Obama’s big-government-to-the-rescue agenda is on the ballot, the Commerce Department reports 3rd Quarter GDP growth of 2%, which the media is dutifully reporting as good news, with the storyline that “the car is out of the ditch, and Obama and Company are pushing it slowly up the hill.”

A little perspective is in order: For Quarter 2 of 2010 the Commerce Department’s initial GDP growth report was 2.4%, which was subsequently revised to 1.7% (over estimated by 40%? “missed it by that much”). Believing that the Quarter 3 2010 GDP growth is not similarly over estimated would require (what was that phrase?) a willing suspension of disbelief.

Am I implying that the Obama Commerce Department did whatever was necessary in the complex calculations of GDP to make sure that the pre-election reported estimate of GDP growth was NOT one point something (in the same way that the unemployment rate conveniently never reaches the toxic 10% mark)? NO, I’m not implying anything, I’m coming right out and saying that the Obama administration manipulated the numbers for political purposes. Will it help them? Not this time.

Not a Parody
From the Due Process purists at the Obama Administration -- the same crowd that believes American ideals require a civilian trial for Kaleed Sheik Mohammed -- comes a new standard for the burden of proof: "do you have any proof that [The Chamber of Commerce] didn't [break the law]?"

Rove, Then and Now

Karl Rove went out of his way to trash the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate from Deleware, Christine O'Donnell, after her victory in the GOP Primary, because of what Rove considers her lack of qualifications and inability to win the general election.

This is the same man -- "The Architect" of two Bush election victories -- who threw the support of the sitting U.S. President behind the treacherous Senator Specter, when Snarlin' Arlen was challenged in the Pennsylvania GOP Primary by Club For Growth Conservative, Rep. Pat Toomey. Why? Because nothing was more important to Rove than a Republican majority in the Senate.

When Bush's endorsement put Specter over the top in the Republican Primary, by the slimmest of margins, disappointed Conservatives were expected by Rove to get behind the Republican nominee, and do what was necessary to secure a GOP Senate majority. For the most part, they did.

When did Karl Rove change his priorities? Christine O'Donnell is the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Deleware. Her interests in the general election coincide with Rove's interest in a Republican Senate majority; so why does Rove get an exemption from his own demands that Republicans supress their pique, and get behind the Party's nominee to secure a Republican majority in the Senate?

And They Say The "Birthers" are Nuts?
Obama thinks The Chamber of Commerce is a Right-wing extremist group, funded by foreign money? It sounds like the President may need another vacation, or at least a call to the Paranoia Hotline.

Constitutional Observation

Q. What is the dividing line between Conservatives and everyone else in America today?

A. Limited –vs- Unlimited Government.

In a society where government is the first resort for every problem and psuedo-problem, what role does a Constitution play? Usually, in the hands of judicial activists, it becomes a cordon to prevent popular and representative majorities from executing guardianship of the foundations and traditions of the social and political fabric. Example: Californians pass a Proposition defining marriage as it has traditionally been defined for millennia, and the Courts say, “you can’t do that, it violates the Constitution.” Under this practice, we have the Constitution limiting the consent of the governed, rather than the Constitution limiting the scope of the government. This turns the framers’ intent on its head.

Recovery Obama-style

When we heard last week that the recession had ended in June 2009, many Americans laughed aloud – I guess we didn’t get the memo. But, the sad truth is that the recession is over, and what we are experiencing right now is what economic growth looks like under the burdens of Obama-Pelosi-Reid big government.

While recessions are typical, so is robust economic growth following; but Obama’s “Summer of Recovery” has produced pathetic GDP growth of less than 2% with the Unemployment rate still tickling the 10% mark.

The risk-takers who drive economic growth may have been in hiding in 2008 and 2009 due to uncertainty about the future, but with the passage of Obamacare and the looming expiration of the Bush tax cuts, capital is now in hiding (or flight to foreign markets) because of certainty, certainty that the burdens imposed by government have dramatically altered the risk-reward proposition against investing in business expansion in the USA.

Here’s a memo to Obama-Pelosi-Reid: It’s the big government, stupid!

J***offs for Coons

It's fascinating to see the Leftist Nutroots and "mainstream" commentators hyper-ventilating over Deleware U.S. Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell's rather temperate remarks about masturbation, offered in the context of an MTV documentary, in which she was interviewed as a voice of traditional sexual morality.

This issue may pose a threat to Republican chances in the general election, since a lot of j***offs would have voted for Liberal Republican Mike Castle, had he won the GOP nomination. Now, it's likely that every j***off in The First State will vote Democrat in November. Come to think of it, it's pretty much Situation Normal.

Criminals Confront The New Normal

CBS News headline from September 13, 2010 <FBI: Violent Crime Down for 3rd Straight Year>

Further proof that it is really bad out there under the Obamaconomy. Even criminals are having a hard time finding jobs.

The article doesn't delve into the internal details of the FBI report, but chances are that criminals are suffering the same pressures as their law-abiding countrymen, namely Public Sector in-roads on Private Sector activity.

Just as Ford and Toyota must compete for market-share against Government Motors, so private sector theives and extortionists have to compete for market-share against Obamacare, Stimulus Spending, Dodd-Frank Financial Industry Regulation, GM Bankruptcy meddling, Cap and Trade, the BP Shakedown, an Offshore Drilling Moratorium, HHS threats to the Health Insurance Industry, and Government mega-borrowing.

Criminals are learning what the rest of us have known for a long time: Big Government is a jealous god.

Tea Party Steam Rolls RINO's in Deleware

Three cheers for the Republican voters of Deleware, and for the Tea Party, for Christine O'Donnell, and for Jim DeMint and Sarah Palin.

Daniel Foster, writing on NRO reports that Castle primary voters support the Democrat Coons over O’Donnell 44-28 in the general election. I’m not sure if that is a before the primary or overnight after the primary poll, but either way it is instructive about where “Moderate” Republicans are coming from. They expect Conservatives to bite the bullet and vote for RINOs, in order to obtain Republican majorities in Congress, but when a NOTD conservative defeats a RINO in the primary, the Republican Moderates find more in common with Liberal Democrats than with Conservative Republicans. The “get behind the Party’s candidate” riff is strictly a one-way street, and the only reason the façade has held as long as it has, is because the bluff usually works to persuade enough GOP Primary voters to cast their ballots for the “electable” Moderate. Recent examples include Arlen Specter, John McCain and Mark Kirk. So, how’s that been workin’ out?

A couple other observations, from Foster’s post:

<CNN’s Mark Preston quotes an unnamed GOP official: “Until she demonstrates some viability in the polls we are not going to have any money for her.” The official said it is now incumbent on Jim DeMint, Sarah Palin, and the Tea Party Express to support O’Donnell. “They got her here.”> And these Republican Party officials can’t figure out why the millions of $25 to $100 grass roots donations have dried up on them? Conservatives and Tea Party voters in Deleware were expected to take one for the team and vote for RINO Mike Castle, because the most important thing was to get a Senate majority, yet following O’Donnell’s primary win the GOP (according to this anonymous official) suddenly calculates that winning a Senate majority isn’t the highest priority after all?

<Only 31% of Delaware voters think Christine O’Donnell is fit to hold public office.> Memo to 69% of Deleware voters, public office is currently held by people generally considered fit to hold it. Considering the results, rather than the resumes, isn’t it time to re-calibrate our assessment of what makes a candidate fit to hold public office? Could we perhaps replace the qualification of an Ivy League degree with the qualification of a knowledge of and reverence for the U.S. Constitution? That would be a start towards restoring our Republic to health.

Pre-emptive Surrender

In case anyone was wondering whether John Boehner is an authentic Republican office holder, there can no longer be any doubt. The Dems disseminate their anti-Boehner Disinformatzia, accusing him of supporting tax hikes on the middle-class, and Boehner’s first reaction is to wave the white flag. “hey, some of my best friends are in the middle-class…”

Could the House GOP Caucus maybe pay for Boehner to attend a negotiating class? The moment Boehner says, “if the best deal I can get is extending the Bush tax cuts for the lower income brackets, I’ll vote for it,” that instantly becomes the best deal he can get.

Moreover, the predictable news reporting of Boehner’s statement is that Boehner has agreed with Obama’s plan to cut taxes for hard-working middle-class Americans (not, mind you, for those dirty rich fat cat SOB’s making a whopping $250K per year). Ah, finally the Republicans see the light and agree to stop their stubborn racist opposition to Obama’s salvation of the proletariat.

It’s a little incongruous to compare Obama to a historic American Patriot, but this story sounds like Ethan Allen demanding the surrender of Ft. Ticonderoga. The British commander assumed (wrongly) that Allen must have had a force sufficient to successfully besiege the fort, so he surrendered without firing a shot. Boehner just did the same.

Wrong Approach to Koran Burning

As I see it, the Pastor of a 30-member "Mega-Church" in Florida, who plans to burn the Koran, is going about this all wrong. He is getting all the people mad at him who buy ink by the truckload, and control the IRS.

He should instead get all those people on his side, by submitting his Koran burning for a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, as a work of avant garde art. The NEH would grant him a few hundred grand of the taxpayers' dollars, and every Liberal from President Obama to the NY Times Editorial Board would defend his insult to a religion as an inviolable work of artistic genius, just as if it was a crucifix in a jar of urine.

Mission Accomplished?

 

I wonder what the Las Vegas odds-makers are saying about the probability of President Obama, in his speech tonight,

1) giving credit to G.W. for turning Iraq around with the Surge

2) admitting that he, BHO, was wrong about the Surge

3) both of the above

 

If I was Obama’s political advisor I would encourage him to say something along the lines of:

“Three and a half years ago, many critics of the Iraq War, myself included, were not convinced that General Petraeus’ Surge Strategy could reverse Iraq’s slide into civil war; but it is a testament to the greatness of America’s Armed Forces, and to the vision of David Patraeus, that the implementation of his strategy did change the course of the Iraq War, so that today we are able to bring American Combat Troops home, and turn over the future of Iraq’s security to the Iraqi’s. It is also to his credit, that my predecessor, President Bush, adopted General Patraeus’ Plan, at a time when the future of our efforts in Iraq looked very dark. Tonight, the future of Iraq looks very different than it did in those chaotic days, which is why I am changing the focus of America’s mission in the region…”

The question is, does Obama have what it takes to say that? I would guess not, but I hope he surprises me.

Edwards was right!
OK, I detest John Edwards, but I'm man enough to admit that he was right. There are indeed TWO AMERICAS. One needs only view the images linked here to know that it is so.

Building Bridges

The 9/11 Victory Mosque Imam says he wants to put a Mosque at Ground Zero in order to “build bridges,” and many people don’t believe him, but I believe him. Bridges are sometimes built in order to unite people on opposite sides, but there is another reason to build bridges, which any Military Engineer can explain to you.

The Blago Obsession

Is it just me, or is Patrick Fitzgerald starting to look and sound like Captain Ahab?

Vacation Suggestions for the Marie Antoinette of the West

Michelle Obama took a modest little vacation to Spain this month, but what I'm wondering is this: has the First Lady ever taken a vacation to Washington D.C.? Perhaps she would profit from a guided tour of the historic places that give so many reasons to be proud of The United States.

If D.C. is too pedestrian for Michelle's refined tastes, maybe a vacation to Boston, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, to visit places like Bunker Hill, Dorchester Heights, Trenton, Princeton, Valley Forge, and Independence Hall.

While in the hood, Mrs. Obama might take in the military cemetary near Gettysburg, where President Lincoln memorialized the brave Americans who gave the last full measure of devotion so that government of the people, by the people and for the people should not perish from the earth.

These vacation spots might inspire the First Lady with some pride in her Country, beyond that derived from the Presidential candidacy of her husband; but if vacationing stateside suits her not, how about something more cosmopolitan? What about a trip to Normandy, to see Omaha Beach and Point de hoc? How about Italy to visit Anzio? Remembering how America saved the World from Hitler might stir even a Harvard Law grad to a touch of appreciation for The United States of America.

Fine Print

One of the selling points for the Democrats' Financial "Reform" law was that it will protect consumers from the fine print in credit card contracts that consumers don't read. But, at 2,000+ pages, the Dodd-Frank bill is nothing but fine print, which no member of Congress read before voting for it.

Why is that procedure hazardous for opening a Visa card account, but safe for passing laws that affect our lives, liberty and property?

One Gun Policy

The Chicago Sun-Times reports: < Chicagoans should be limited to one handgun for every eligible person living in a home — and gun dealers should be banned within the city limits — in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to shoot down the city’s handgun ban, the city’s top lawyer said on Tuesday. One day after Chicago’s strictest-in-the-nation handgun ban was rendered unenforceable, Corporation Counsel Mara Georges argued that it’s “critical to public safety” to at least draw the line on the number of handguns in Chicago.>

When you read something like this you may be tempted to ask, “which part of ‘shall not be infringed’ don’t these people understand?” But, that would be a mistake. It’s not that these gun-grabbing big-government Liberals don’t understand the U.S. Constitution, it’s that they don’t like it. After all, that’s the whole point of the “Living Constitution” bit.

Our betters don’t like being bound by constraints on government power, they like constraining us -- or as the City's lawyer puts it, “draw[ing] the line.” Our Founding Fathers had a term for this type of activity: “Tyranny.” They pledged their lives, fortunes and sacred honor to overthrow it and secure liberty to their generation and ours, and the least that our generation of fathers can do is teach the facts of liberty and tyranny to our children around the dinner table, so that they don’t grow up to be either the clueless victims of tyranny, or the perpetrators of it.
