Somebody’s Gotta Say It!

donald-trump-republican-event-2015-gi

Call him what you will, but Donald Trump is RIGHT about SO many things!…..

Some excerpts from his speech in announcing his running for president…

“I’m really rich…that’s the kind of thinking you need for this country. It sounds crass, it’s not crass..”

“That’s the kind of thinking our country needs…”… “We have the opposite thinking. We have losers. We have people that don’t have it. We have people that are morally corrupt.”

On Obamacare and the website fiasco:  “I hire people, they do a website, it costs $3!

On our losing status in the world:

“I’m not saying they’re stupid, I like China..”… “I just sold an apartment for $15 million to someone from China. Am I supposed to dislike them?”

“Politicians are all talk and no action,”….“We have losers. We have people who are morally corrupt. We have people who are taking the country down the drain.”

“I’m really proud of my success, I really am,”….”I’ve employed tens of thousands of people over my lifetime. That means medical, that means education, that means everything. So a large accounting firm and my accountants have been working for months — because it’s big and complex — and they’ve put together a statement.”

“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best..”

“They’re sending people who have lots of problems,… which include “drugs” and “being rapists.”

Just a few of what many consider outrageous remarks…That very well may be..but, for the most part they tell it like it is!!

The Man Who Knew Too Little!

Well…here we go again…one more time….

The Obama administration in the midst of yet another mess. Another mess, which in the REAL world, would have damning consequences. Unfortunately, those days are obviously long gone with the distractions of today’s world.

Nevertheless, the exposing of the matter of then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton using a personal server instead of the standard government designated email process, would seemingly run the risk of damaging national security. But, as is ALWAYS the case with the Clintons, she will likely escape with little more than collateral damage. An excuse will be put forth and approved by the media.

Her boss, Barack Obama, is now stepping forward to claim he didn’t know about the situation beforehand and learned about it only through news reports.

.."the same time everybody else learned (of) it..through news reports.."

..”the same time everybody else learned (of) it..through news reports..”

It continues to strike me as disturbing how THIS president conveniently feigns ignorance when it comes to one serious matter after another. It’s just the latest example to vindicate those of us who knew the election of this man continues to grow as one of the biggest disasters to befall this nation.

Of course…this isn’t the first…there’s a virtual parade of these incidents coming out of the White House…

On the IRS’s selective targeting of conservative groups..

"I can assure you that I certainly did not know anything about the [inspector general] report before the I.G. report had been leaked"

“I can assure you that I certainly did not know anything about the [inspector general] report before the I.G. report had been leaked”

On the Obamacare website woes…

President Barack Obama didn't know of problems with the Affordable Care Act's website -- despite insurance companies' complaints and the site's crashing during a test run -- until after its now well-documented abysmal launch, the nation's health chief told CNN on Tuesday.

“President Barack Obama didn’t know of problems with the Affordable Care Act’s website — despite insurance companies’ complaints and the site’s crashing during a test run — until after its now well-documented abysmal launch, the nation’s health chief told CNN..”

On the Justice Department seizing phone records of the A.P….

Other than press reports, we have no knowledge of any attempt by the Justice Department to seek phone records of the AP," White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters.."

“Other than press reports, we have no knowledge of any attempt by the Justice Department to seek phone records of the AP,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters..”

On the NSA’s spying on German chancellor Merkel..

President Barack Obama didn't know the United States was collecting communications of allied leaders such as German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee said on Monday.

“President Barack Obama didn’t know the United States was collecting communications of allied leaders such as German Chancellor Angela Merkel..”

Just a few instances of the obvious inconsistent and dangerous sphere in which this administration operates. It makes you wonder WHAT ELSE this president DOESN’T know!

It shows an administration in disarray and mired in incompetence. It shows the arrogance of a leader lacking in substance and skill. And the most frightening part…..it shows a nation so easily swayed by flourished words, promises..and absolute lies…that it would entrust our literal future to a man who has proven himself so UNFIT to hold the office he does and the power he wields.

NO CLUE!!!!!

NO CLUE!!!!!

Do You Ever Ask Yourself ‘WTF?’…..

Today’s entry is short, sweet, and to the point.

I find myself asking the title question every day! I find it beyond simple comprehension how ANY clear thinking, sensible person could listen, let alone WATCH, the senseless, moronic musings of the talking heads of “progressive” media. I find their mindless, detached sensationalism to be just that..sensational! And not in a productive manner. So, the next time you wonder how and why things are the way they are under the Obama administration, you can thank these individuals, among many others. Their combined efforts, along with a clueless, hapless president, have created the crumbling, weary, dysfunctional society you see around you. Will it ever end? Possibly. Likely? Not any time soon….

clueless, hapless, and hopeless...

clueless, hapless, and hopeless…

Detached Cluelessness!

"Is it preposterous' to consider a black hole as a possibility?"

Madame Speaker offers a analysis on the fourth anniversary of Obamacare vote…I’m sure Ms. Pelosi is quite aware that this train wreck is ANYTHING BUT ‘affordable’!…What an absolute embarrassing nit wit! @NancyPelosi

"I think everyone's grateful..you did this.."

“I think everyone’s grateful..you did this..”

I love ya’ Ellen, but gushing to the President over how “great” Obamacare is was a bit much…I thought you were MUCH smarter than that! @TheEllenShow

You rich people should pay more taxes..because you can afford to..period.

The sadly clueless and FROZEN (brain) star of Showtime’s “House of Lies” proves how detached she’s become with a moronic tweet about rich people paying higher taxes…I’m sure the Feds would be happy to tack on a little something extra to Ms. Bell’s tax bill…  @IMKristenBell

This is brief, I know…but, you get the point…These are just four examples if rampant idiocy omnipresent in our culture, our media…the day to day narrative. These past 5 plus years have been utterly detrimental, to say the least, to the well being of the United States. It’s this kind of mindless, opportunistic garbage that passes of astute observation. When, in truth, these individuals, and more like them, lack even a shred of the capability to apply practical thought to what they’re saying…and what they believe. What a sad, sad state of affairs…

Our only hope lies in more and more of us realizing what complete lunacy is…and these guys are pointing the way…

Idiocy on Parade: Best of 2012!!!

Good riddance, 2012!!….

I’m sure there are many that share that sentiment!

I happened across this piece at Media Research Center. It’s their special year end awards for some of the most moronic, idiotic, and just plain STUPID quotes from those in media and the like. Remember…THESE are those that set themselves ABOVE everyone else! They know MUCH more about how this country should function than you or I do! THESE are the experts! The media elite!…

You should discern that they’re nothing more than self congratulating blow hards full of sh*t!..to put it mildly!…Enjoy!

“If his [the House GOP] budget were ever come to pass, then Meals on Wheels would be killed, transportation services to the disabled would be destroyed, food stamps would be eviscerated. I think many Americans would end up in soup kitchens like that. So I don’t think we should be critical. I think we should be grateful that what Mr. Ryan has shown us is exactly what will happen to people if the kind of vicious and callous budget that he would wish to impose on American people ends up coming to pass.”— MSNBC’s Martin Bashir on NewsNation, October 16.

This is the kind of man that Mitt Romney is. This man does not have a soul. If you opened up, you know, his chest, there’s probably a gold ticking watch in there and not even a heart. This is not a person. This is just a robot who will do whatever it takes, whatever he’s told to do, to make it to the White House. And he will take whatever push in the back from whatever nasty person is pushing him and move him further in that direction.” — New York Times columnist Charles Blow on MSNBC’s The Last Word, July 17.

16 THINGS THAT ARE REALLY GOING TO STINK ABOUT 2013 – The Economic Collapse

25 FACTS THAT THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA DOESN’T REALLY WANT TO TALK ABOUT RIGH NOW – End of the American Dream

FLASHBACK:

THANKS OBAMA! – HERE ARE 24 STATS THAT SHOW HOW MUCH YOU HAVE ROYALLY MESSED UP OUR ECONOMY! – End of the American Dream

Appealing to the Dumb (M)asses!

Well, have you recovered from your Thanksgiving holiday?…I suppose, in many ways, things are just getting started! I’m not sure what to make of spending for the upcoming season. Of course, that goes with just about ANYTHING the media reports on. CNN says traffic was up, but sales were down. TechCrunch says online sales surged. So..you figure it out…

“I’m coming after MORE of your money…and you ASKED for it!”

One thing’s you could probably bet on as a certainty…your taxes are going up. President Obama will likely move for some sort of major tax increase. It’s what he does..its’ who he is. The President is an enemy of commerce and producing in this country. Period.

I found this reader’s take on what’s ahead in the Duluth (MN) News Tribune:

OBAMA’S POLICY WILL BE TO TAX SUCCESS AND HARD WORK

I will predict the president’s strategy for fiscal policy. He vilifies anyone who worked hard, came up with a good idea, risked their money, or made good decisions and had their efforts rewarded. He campaigned on the promise to get more of their money. He seems unsatisfied with getting 3 percent to 4 percent more.

Everyone agrees the tax system needs reform. President Obama will pressure Republicans into raising rates on the top

2 percent of income-tax filers (who currently pay 60 percent of all federal income taxes, according to the Wall Street Journal and other sources). Once he has gotten the increase in tax rates, Obama will push closing tax loopholes for this select few, further increasing their taxes.

Obama seems to believe the successful 2 percent must take personal responsibility for all Americans.

Is it surprising that according to exit polls, 60 percent of voters support raising taxes on the top 2 percent? No. If you ask, “Would you rather raise your taxes or the other guys’ taxes?” you’d expect a high percentage voting for the other guy. Obama should be concerned his scheme didn’t get the support of 98 percent.

Obama, like President Clinton and Warren Buffet, has said he could pay more in federal taxes. Yet last year he took all the deductions his returns. Romney, meanwhile, paid more taxes by not taking the deductions to which he was entitled, according to news reports. (It’s funny Obama didn’t mention Romney as a good example of what he was talking about!)

Obama seems to love to say: “I say what I mean and I mean what I say.” I look forward to Obama taking the standard deduction on his 2012 return. Paying more taxes and demonstrating he means it.

Doug Haertzen

Warba, Minn.

I couldn’t agree more with Mr. Haertzen. Mr. Obama subscribes to the notion that the only way to solve the nation’s fiscal woes is to take more from those that have and give it to those that don’t. That’s it, in a nutshell. There is no argument to be made that disputes that. There just isn’t. Have you ever asked yourself why the government’s answer is to seize more from YOU? Why is limiting the scope and growth of the government NEVER a consideration? WHY IS THAT? The answer today is simple. President Obama and the Democrats have succeeded in making more and more of your fellow Americans dependent upon the federal government for their livelihood…and in some cases, their survival. That doesn’t explain why the federal government does not place its focus and energy on a more productive society instead.

Under the ‘WHO DIDN’T SEE THIS COMING?’ banner, we now have Republicans caving on their commitment to no new taxes. And I’m sad to say MY senator, Saxby Chambliss (R-GA), is apparently leading the way.

“I am basically…a coward…”

It just goes to show you even the most stalwart defenders of common sense in government can weaken. Whatever is politically expedient rules the day. I had more faith in Sen. Chambliss, but I suppose that was a foolish notion.

“I’m hoping to remind the cowards as to what they ALREADY agreed to!”

In the meantime, at least some have retained some balls…Alabama’s Jeff Sessions (R) has indicated that Congress should stick with the budget limitations agreed to in LAST year’s agreement. We shall see how THAT plays out..

Lets’s face it folks. You know it and I know it. The President…Congress…they (MOST of them, anyway) have no intention whatsoever about tackling the problems we face. They lack the guts and fortitude to face facts. They’re basically cowards. Their position in government is secure as long as they can convince the dumb asses in this country that they care and they have the answers. When, the fact is, THEY are the problem!

I am convinced more than ever before that the only thing that will wake the American people up to reality is national catastrophe of massive proportions. God forbid…It’s going to take something on huge scale…whether it’s economical, military in nature, or a natural disaster. The latter may not have as far reaching proportions and the previous two, but it could turn out to be an indicator of where we’re headed. Hurricane Sandy is the latest example. We simply cannot go on as we have in the past. There were those that saw no real difference between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama as the election approached. They may have been right. But…we’ve now handed the keys to our car over to a dangerous, intoxicated driver who is intent on going faster and faster. He’s taking us in the wrong direction and the destination is NOT going to be pretty! Enjoy the ride! It could very well be your last!

The ‘Headline Collection’

 

 

I did not watch the debates…apparently I should have. Of course, this is only the first of three. But it’s good to see Romney decided to go on offense…

Great collection of headlines this morning!….

Halfway through, they should have stopped the fight.

“Gov. Mitt Romney eviscerated a staggering and bewildered President Barack Obama tonight in one of the most lopsided presidential debates in American history. Throughout the debate, which focused on domestic policy, Obama looked shaken, rarely looking at the camera, reciting old talking points and filibustering as Romney gave a master class at the University of Denver.” – Breitbart.com

Well, it’s quite obvious who has the more subdued headline here. I’ve never had a doubt the failings of Barack Obama are out there…front and center. My doubt was whether enough voters could see it. My reservations about Mitt Romney’s efforts to shine the light on that are not something I’ve hid here. He’s definitely off to a good start. Will the momentum carry him through the next 2 debates? We’ll see…The REAL challenge will be convincing Americans that “obamaphone lady” and the lady who expected money from “Obama’s stash” in 2008 are NOT representative of the direction we want to take this country. We still have a battle ahead….
