Uhhhhh…..

Thought it would be quite timely to play of Rush Limbaugh’s spot on analysis of the legacy of lies which defines the Obama administration.

This president perpetuates a situation where lie after lie after lie has become the hallmark of his presidency. Yet there’s no concern, no genuine consideration…nothing! Nothing but the feigned attention and arrogance that IS Barack Obama….

DESPERATE DEMOCRATS

It shouldn’t be surprising the lengths the Democrats will go to in order to instill fear in the voting electorate. However, this year’s mid term elections seem to have brought some humdingers!

A few for you..

In North Carolina, a group supportive of incumbent Senator Kay Hagan (D) warns of lynchings and the like, should the GOP win the Senate…

senator kay hagan

In Texas, loopy Wendy Davis, the Democrat candidate for governor, questions whether her Republican opponent, Greg Abbott, would defend an interracial marriage ban. A rather odd scenario in itself, made even more odd by the fact that Abbott himself is in an interracial marriage…

Wendy Davis filibuster

The lunatic, Davis, is about as whack as they come in politics….

And speaking of lunatics…. Massachusetts senator, Elizabeth Warren (D), stumping for fellow idiot, Al Franken (D-MN), is on the rampage again with some garbage about the system being rigged by the Republicans…Yeah…they rigged it so they would lose…

Elizabeth-Warren1

When it comes to complete and utter nonsense, nonstop bullshit, and a complete lack of common sense, the Democrats have DEFINITELY got that cornered!

Confidence?..I don’t think so!

"We can't shut down the border...that would make too much sense.."

“We can’t shut down the border…that would make too much sense..”

Unfortunately for the citizens of the United States, the Obama administration and its authority with the Centers for Disease Control (an oxymoron with the Ebola outbreak) seem to be placing more of us at risk with their lack of direction in handling this VERY serious crisis!

I have little, if any, confidence with the abilities of ANY agency of this government with Barack Obama at its helm.

We are watching this country fall to the risk of what could be turn out to be devastating. Instead, the CDC head, Dr. Thomas Frieden seems to be more concerned about what we CAN’T or shouldn’t do rather than secure the health and welfare of our country and its citizens. We are literally relying on questionnaires and devices which supposedly register body temperature simply by waving them around an individual.

ONCE AGAIN, the Obama White House allows a situation to come to the brink of chaos, while they try to reassure a nervous public that they have things under control! How many more individuals will enter the United States while “showing no symptoms”, only to discover two days later they’re infected with the worst virus since the plague?…

I find this whole politicized matter to be typical of a government headed by a completely UNQUALIFIED, ARROGANT, CONDESCENDING president! Only, this time, our physical well being is in danger! God help us!….

The Deafening Silence of the GOP

loud-silence

They say “the more things change, the more they stay the same”…

That is never more true than it is in American politics. With an important election a bit more than a month away, you’d certainly be unaware if it was left to the Republican party to get the word out.

With the Senate up for grabs, as well as important governorships across the nation, the political capital to be gained is significant. At least, that’s what sensible thought tells you.

Apparently not.

The Republican party has been practically silent in its response to the OBVIOUS vulnerability of Democrats across the nation. I find myself perplexed, yet not surprised. Republicans have been basically neutered since Barack Obama took office. We’re all aware of that. However, it would certainly be a logical conclusion they COULD offer a forceful alternative, should they choose to do so.

Take a look around you. Things ARE not going well on any front…socially, economically. Not  to mention our relationships abroad.

Yet, we get…nothing…It’s frustrating when it’s so plain to see the damage inflicted upon this country by the political left and the Democrats! No Republican candidate has stepped forward to point out the clarity of this situation. The confounding fact is this stuff is NOT that difficult to grasp! The lunacy of the Obama administration, coupled with COMPLETE incompetence, continues unchecked!

Witness the utter buffoonery displayed by Secretary of State, John Kerry, testifying before a Senate committee on the administration’s efforts to combat the Isis/Isil threat in the middle east.. Obviously, the moronic Kerry is more concerned with Code Pink protestors than the seriousness of the this threat..

" I understand dissent.  I've lived it.  That's how I first testified in front of this country in 1971.  I respect the right of Code Pink to protest and to use that right.  But, you know what?  I also know something about Code Pink.  You ought to care about fighting ISIL, because ISIL is killing and raping and mutilating women, and they believe women shouldn't have an education.  They sell off girls to be sex slaves to jihadists! There is no negotiation with ISIL.  There is nothing to negotiate.  And they're not offering anyone health care of any kind... Y-you know, they're not offering education of any kind."

What the hell?!!!….

It’s more than obvious the important matter here is to protect the Obama administration  through the requisite pandering. THAT is priority number 1! Fortunately, there are exceptions to the GOP’s stance. Tennessee’s Senator Corker (R) lent some common sense to the proceedings….

 Do you realize how unserious the things that you have laid out and the things that were laid out yesterday sound when you're discussing training 5,000 -- in you all's own words -- doctors and dentists and others in Saudi Arabia, over a year?  I'm disappointed.  I was disappointed in the briefing we had last week.  I hope you'll lay out a plan that will convince us that you're serious about doing the things you said you're gonna do -- to the American people and to us -- about ISIL, because you haven't done it now.

But, as is true to form, you have MORONS like California’s Barbara Boxer(D) throwing in her nonsense…

 I think it is shocking and a sad state of affairs that we heard just now such angry comments aimed at you, Mr. Secretary -- and through you, at our president -- instead of at ISIS, a savage group who decapitated two Americans and have warned, and I quote, that their thirst for more American blood is right out there.  I think it's shocking.  I'm actually shaking and trembling.  This is not the time to show anger at the people who are working night and day, whether you agree with them or not, to protect our people.

Again, we ALL know where the priorities lie for Senator Boxer, and other Democrats!

The Republican party leadership has made the conscious decision to ignore the sheer stupidity and selfishness exemplified by the Obama administration and their Democrat allies. It’s disheartening to witness as the nation continues to falter. We’ve witnessed the level of this idiocy on the rise for nearly 6 years…

Unless the discouragement and frustration reaches the point where enough of the voters are fed up, nothing will change. And it’s a fact that we are NOT going to find our concerns taken seriously by either party in Washington. That point is inarguable.

Obama Presidency ‘Bogus And Wrong’ As He Dishonestly Claims Its Not His Fault He Abandoned Iraq After Bush Secured Victory There

Why Is Obama Encouraging Illegal Immigration When We Can’t Take Care Of Millions Of Our Own Citizens?

As with most EVERYTHING in the Obama administration, the unfolding immigration and border crisis is escalating into a catastrophe…Not necessarily for him, but for the nation.

The Economic Collapse blog, as they usually do, has the perfect analysis of the most damaging, disastrous president this nation has seen….

obama-and-illegal-aliens

 

“For years, the Obama administration has been making it abundantly clear that it is a friend of illegal immigrants. Border security is a joke, the federal government refuses to go after “sanctuary cities” even though they are breaking federal law, there is a website that instructs immigrants how to sign up for welfare programs once they arrive in the United States, and the Obama administration has distributed flyers that tell illegal immigrants that their immigration status will not be checked when they apply for food stamps. And Obama has even instructed officials to use “prosecutorial discretion” in deportation cases involving non-criminals. In other words, Obama has been flashing a huge green light to illegal immigrants, and so of course our borders were going to be inundated with them.

Apologists for the Obama administration will debate you all day about what Obama “intended” and what he didn’t “intend”, but there is no doubt about what message immigrants from Central America have been receiving.

For example, one young mother recently told the press that she heard that if you “go to America with your child, you won’t be turned away”.

And you can view video of a little boy from Central America telling an investigate reporter that he believes that Barack Obama has “given permission” for him to live in the United States right here.

It isn’t an accident that our southern border is literally being flooded with illegal immigrants right now. Newspapers in El Salvador and Honduras have been publicizing how easy illegal immigration has become, and even the President of Honduras has said that people are coming to the United States for “Obama’s amnesty”.

When they arrive, thousands upon thousands of these illegal immigrants are using rehearsed answers that border patrol agents are hearing over and over again. Word has spread that if illegal immigrants claim that they are “fleeing gang violence” that it is more likely that they will be allowed to stay.

What we are witnessing down on the southern border is really unprecedented. It has been estimated that twelve times as many kids are crossing our borders illegally now compared to just a few years ago.

And they just keep on coming.

This is utter madness.

Now, please don’t think that I am anti-immigrant. I am all for legal immigration. This is a nation of immigrants and we will always need immigration. But everyone should be required to come in through the front door. Encouraging illegal immigration is simply a recipe for disaster.

If we keep the back door wide open, the truth is that we have absolutely no idea who is coming into our country. Do we really want countless numbers of criminals, welfare parasites, drug dealers and gang members pouring into our cities? According to the FBI, there are now approximately 1.4 million gang members living in the United States, and it has been estimated that illegal immigrants make up approximately 30 percent of the total population in federal, state and local prisons.

And why in the world would we not want to control the diseases coming into this country? Over the past several weeks, it has been documented that some of the illegal immigrants that have been apprehended have scabies and tuberculosis.

But instead of sending them right back out of the country, U.S. officials are setting up camps for this tsunami of illegal immigrants. In other cases, the federal government is simply putting them on buses and planes and shipping them all over the country. The illegal immigrants are released into their new communities and are given papers which order them to eventually appear in court, but of course the vast majority of them never show up. You can see a map that documents areas where the federal government has been shipping illegal immigrants right here.

The rational thing to do would be to secure our borders and to send a very clear message that illegal immigration is not welcome in the United States.

But instead of doing that, the Obama administration is actually bringing in a riot squad to deal with anti-immigration protesters.

During normal times all of this would be crazy enough, but right now we are at a point where we cannot even take care of millions upon millions of our own citizens.

We are told that illegal immigrants do the jobs “that Americans don’t want to do”, but is that really accurate?

In this day and age, there is intense competition for just about any kind of a job. Despite what the mainstream media says, the truth is that there hasn’t been a significant employment recovery in the United States. As you can see from the chart posted below, the percentage of the working age population that is actually working is still far, far below where it was just prior to the last recession…

 

Employment-Population-Ratio-2014

 

Yes, there has been a very slight bump in the numbers in recent months, but it is certainly no reason for celebration. When the mainstream media declares that unemployment in America has been steadily going down, they are simply being disingenuous. Right now things are only slightly better than they were during the worst times of the past several years.

And according to shadowstats.com, the broadest measure of unemployment is still well over 20 percent and has been steadily rising since the end of the last recession.

So no, there aren’t nearly enough jobs in the United States.

And thanks to competition from immigrant labor and thanks to the fact that millions of good jobs have been shipped overseas, the quality of our jobs continues to decline as well. For much more on that trend, please see this article.

Needless to say, now is not the time to open up the floodgates to millions of immigrants that will need jobs to support themselves. Many of our major cities are already so economically depressed that they look like war zones. In fact, things have gotten so bad in Detroit that a plan is being considered to bulldoze a fifth of the entire city…

In May, a group ominously titled the “Detroit Blight Removal Task Force” released a report claiming that around 22 percent of the city’s properties were “blighted” – vacant, damaged or considered dangerous. They also found that, of the 84,000 properties owned by public entities, just over 5,000 were occupied by squatters, making the city of Detroit, the report’s authors noted, “a very large and inadvertent landlord”.

The task force’s proposed solution is to demolish it all over the next five years and start again. Unfortunately, the plan doesn’t extend to rebuilding the properties – it’ll be down to private companies and developers to buy up the land and rebuild.

For much more on the decay of our major cities, please see my previous article entitled “The Death Of The Rust Belt”.

Considering the fact that we are already having such a severe problem taking care of our current population, what do you think is going to happen to these waves of illegal immigrants as they attempt to settle in to communities all around the nation?

Ultimately, we are going to have to end up financially supporting a very large percentage of them too.

Right now, more than 20 percent of children in this country are already living in poverty, and 49 million Americans are dealing with food insecurity.

If Obama continues to encourage mass illegal immigration, those numbers are going to get much worse.

Government dependence is already at an all-time record high, and about half the country currently receives benefits of some sort from the federal government every month.

How much more weight can we put on the “safety net” before it breaks? Just check out some more numbers about this crisis from one of my previous articles…

-Ten years ago, the number of women in the U.S. that had jobs outnumbered the number of women in the U.S. on food stamps by more than a 2 to 1 margin. But now the number of women in the U.S. on food stamps actually exceeds the number of women that have jobs.

-The U.S. government has spent an astounding 3.7 trillion dollars on welfare programs over the past five years.

-Today, the federal government runs about 80 different “means-tested welfare programs”, and almost all of those programs have experienced substantial growth in recent years.

-Back in 1960, the ratio of social welfare benefits to salaries and wages was approximately 10 percent. In the year 2000, the ratio of social welfare benefits to salaries and wages was approximately 21 percent. Today, the ratio of social welfare benefits to salaries and wages is approximately 35 percent.

-While Barack Obama has been in the White House, the total number of Americans on food stamps has gone from 32 million to nearly 47 million.

-Back in the 1970s, about one out of every 50 Americans was on food stamps. Today, about one out of every 6.5 Americans is on food stamps.

-It sounds crazy, but the number of Americans on food stamps now exceeds the entire population of the nation of Spain.

-According to one calculation, the number of Americans on food stamps is now greater than the combined populations of “Alaska, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.”

-According to a report from the Center for Immigration Studies, 43 percent of all immigrants that have been in the United States for at least 20 years are still on welfare.

A lot of people that are trying to immigrate here illegally just want to make a better life for themselves, and I can appreciate that.

But a policy of making it incredibly difficult for honest people to come in through the front door while keeping the back door completely wide open for lawbreakers is a recipe for national suicide.

And right now we don’t have jobs for these immigrants.

We can’t even take care of the people that are already living here.

Something desperately needs to be done about this, but I wouldn’t hold your breath waiting for Obama to make a bold move to stop illegal immigrants from pouring over the border.”

A Return to the Idiocy

Seems the narrative continues with the Obama administration no matter what the concern. If you can call it a “concern”. Yes, in my absence,  Barack Obama continues his condescension, his arrogance, his oblivious approach to practically every single issue that is of consideration to the American people…   Barack Obama at the White House   Indulge me here as I draw upon an analysis from Rush Limbaugh on the state of the Obama presidency… “They plug Obama into the Democrat presidential peg, and they assign to him the behavioral modes, the structure of every Democrat president who’s ever been without looking at what he’s really doing and what his policies really are, there’s no curiosity, there’s no analysis. And so in their world, which is very narrow, by the way, in their world, which is very small, in their world, where every poll counts — like global warming is essentially a poll.” “The news is devastating for Obama, but it doesn’t matter, for all the reasons that I detailed in the previous hour. It matters to the media; they’re devastated. They’re devastated for a number of reasons. I mean, they’ve been doing everything they can to prop the guy up. They’ve been ignoring all the scandals… They’ve been following the administration line on blaming the Republicans for everything. They’ve been propping Obama up. He’s great, he’s funny, all this. So there’s gotta be a little bit of personal disappointment because they have made it their mission to protect Obama, and they’ve gotta do it for two more years….” “There is no concern whatsoever for what has happened to this country. They continue to report lies about the economy and the great job market and economic growth and all of that. They do this in an effort to keep “this” from happening — and by “this,” I mean this devastating poll from NBC/Wall Street Journal. So they take it personally two ways: Their guy is on the skids and they weren’t able to stop it.” ******************************************************************************* I’ll borrow the ‘godfather’s’ line here too….”DON’T DOUBT ME!”
