‘Are We There Yet?’

File photo of Obama and Biden in Wilmington

I know this is a foolish question, but do you ever feel as if your concerns about government, our national future, your children’s future, is all just a big joke to our Washington politicians? THEIR concerns are NOT yours. THEIR day to day is NOTHING like yours. Barack Obama and Joe Biden, two of THE MOST DISCONNECTED individuals to grace the executive branch of government, haven’t the slightest CLUE what worries most Americans. And the sad part is, they don’t seem to care.

So, I’m left to ask if we’re there yet…Have we reached the point where our collective disgust will prompt us to make serious changes, come the next election? Possibly. Likely? I doubt it.

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA)

This latest ridiculous example of how out of touch those that purport to serve really are, is the Senate Democrats and their all night session discussing climate change with California’s loony Barbara Boxer leading the way! No matter where your beliefs fall on that issue, an all nighter on the matter is a glittering jewel of how these moronic, arrogant individuals avoid the more pressing, serious issues of the day. They don’t have the fortitude and they lack the personal integrity it takes to tackle the serious problems of the here and now. The national debt, unemployment, the IRS targeting, the NSA spying fiasco, our shrinking presence on the international stage, and the disparaging of our military. Americans struggle to pay bills and provide…if they’re fortunate enough to find work. Yet, the Senate Democrats would MUCH prefer to literally lend lip service to “CLIMATE CHANGE”! Other talking points, such as “immigration reform”, “gay marriage” “gender equality”…the list goes on and on… are not to be diminished in their own right. But, we face endangerments to our nation as a whole that threaten our existence. They don’t seem to matter to those that lack the guts to face the truth.

On top of all of that, let’s not forget we’re all a bunch of liars and ‘tea baggers’…..

Whatever works best for the camera..to this demographic..to that voting block…to this constituency. That’s what matters to Washington. Republican AND Democrat. Whatever they can tell you that will perpetuate the lie. That’s what sells..and guarantees their future in office.

So…it seems the joke’s on us. We send these idiots back to Washington time and time again. And the cycle continues. We’re on a fast track to nowhere. Eventually we will slam into the brick wall of reality. And that’s NOT going to be a pretty sight. The signs are all there. The question is whether we have the wisdom to heed the warnings. As things are now, I think we all know the answer to that question…

In the meantime, the joke continues in Washington…

Lack of Awareness….

 

On top of our nation struggling through 2 terms of a disastrous President Obama, we are constantly reminded he’s never “aware” of what’s going on in HIS administration!

"President Barack Obama told Merkel that he was not aware her phone was being bugged, or he would have stopped it." - The Verge, 10/26/13

"The president told a news conference this week that operating the IRS in “anything less than a neutral and non-partisan way” would be “outrageous,” and he quickly added that he wouldn’t tolerate it. He also said he wasn’t aware of it until recently and there is no suggestion the White House was behind the idea." - The Raleigh Telegram 5/15/13

" Either the President was fully aware of the extent of the NSA’s criminal activities, which violate both domestic and international law, and was willing to go along with them or the NSA has amassed so much power in Washington that it literally operates outside the chain of command and above the rule of law. In either case, we face a tyrannical force the likes of which have never been seen in the United States before." - The Rutherford Institute 10/30/13

I’m certain there’s more…

It just astounds me how THIS administration’s incompetence is given a pass, an excuse, and exception..no matter how vital, how serious, or how dangerous a national situation can be. President Barack Obama and his cabinet, his staff, his ENTIRE administration seems to be comprised in clueless and careless individuals. The most frightening aspect is this all could very well, and may likely be, intentional. THAT is an extreme possibility. But, a possibility, none the less!

 

What Happened to ‘The Right Stuff’?

How many stories have you read today where you shake your head and think to yourself, “You know, that’s just not right…” ? As you may have deduced, the title of this piece has nothing to do with political ideology. On second thought, practically everything in America today has to do with political ideology. Ok, it has nothing to do with your political affiliation…yes?..no?..maybe?…

Well, not to be sidetracked. It just seems there’s no clear understanding of right and wrong any longer. There’s no consequence of wrongdoing, particularly. As I’ve mentioned before, we’ve become a nation of exceptions and excuses.

Obama_Correspondents_0afd6

Take the mess that surrounds President Obama’s administration. I will wager to say there will be no detriment to him or anyone serving under him, save maybe some low level clerical individual, as the result of Benghazi, the IRS selective targeting, the NSA spying on EVERYONE and EVERYTHING…NONE of it! A disinterested and woefully uninformed electorate will simply continue in blissful, careless ignorance. Of course you have a media whose job description has been practically erased and their defiant unwillingness to expose what are serious and major threats to the sanctity of the United States. They will not allow the nation’s first African-American president to be harmed by ANY political fallout whatsoever! THERE! It’s here for you to read! You know the racial aspect is real and primary in their assessment of this President and his policies. The media invested too much in Barack Obama to allow any sort of shameful mark to mar his image. It’s not going to happen. No matter how serious or damaging to the nation it may be. He comes first in their collective view. That being said, the story would be entirely different if the party affiliation were any different for Mr. Obama. You know and I know it. Nothing would be off limits and he would be crucified in the press while the nation screamed for his resignation.

But, that’s not the case. Our nation is saddled with a reactionary, yet indifferent head of state. He’s not a leader, mind you. He simply occupies an office in the White House.

Issue after issue engulfs the nation as we move through the years. Yet, there never seems to be a resolution to any of it. The latest, “immigration reform”, which I believe to be a misnomer, is being highlighted as something we have to tackle. We MUST do! Yet, everyone seems to have forgotten the simple fact that had the federal government chosen to enforce existing law and secure our borders, we might not be experiencing the problem to the extent we are today.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), who I want to think is too smart to be played for a sucker, is championing what is likely going to turn out to be a damaging piece of legislation. He’s already back tracked from advocating securing the border first, prior to “registering” those in the country illegally. Now, it’s just the reverse. And anyone who DOESN’T think this entire process will NOT be a political boon for the Democrats is living in a fool’s paradise!

As all of this preoccupation with admittedly serious, but better categorized as secondary problems, the nation continues to suffer economically. What was considered the primary catalyst for what drives this country has now taken a back seat to what makes for better media exposure to this group or that constituency. From contraception to gay marriage to healthcare. And don’t get me started on the frightening train wreck ahead as life under Obamacare becomes real!

And so it goes. We continue to suffer under incompetent, disaffected, and disconnected “leaders”. Those whose primary allegiance is to themselves, NOT the job they were elected to do. It’s a vicious circle. They no longer care and they know a growing number of Americans don’t as well! You could chalk it up to simple weariness. We’re all just so tired of everything. That might be too simplistic. It’s an attitude fostered by those we place faith in…those we grant our trust. Our only hope is that the frustration soon turns to anger. An anger that will empower us to do what is right and again make this nation what it was and what it should be for our children and their children. We cannot allow history to look back and chronicle our societal collapse. Otherwise, we shame the memory of so many before us. It’s just that simple.

AN INTERVIEW WITH BARACK OBAMA ABOUT THE IRS SCANDAL, AP PHONE RECORDS, AND BENGHAZI

“Does Barack Obama have any idea what is going on in the government that he is supposedly running?  Scandals are erupting all around him, and he supposedly was not aware that any wrongdoing had taken place in any of those instances.  It is almost as if every major government agency has gone rogue and Obama has no idea what the heck they are doing.  According to Obama, he often doesn’t learn what those under his authority are up to until he sits down and turns on the news.  Should we believe him when he claims ignorance over and over again, or is Obama just trying to protect himself?  Whether you are a Republican, a Democrat or an Independent, the revelations that have come out in recent days about the IRS, the seizure of AP phone records and Benghazi should be very alarming to you.  Taken together, these scandals paint a picture of a federal government that has become drunk with power, and no matter where you may fall on the political spectrum that is something that nobody should want.

Posted below is a fictional interview that I have created between an anonymous reporter and Barack Obama about the IRS scandal, the seizure of AP phone records, Benghazi and other sensitive topics.  Yes, this interview is a bit absurd, but so is the notion that Barack Obama is completely ignorant about so many important things that are going on inside his own government…

REPORTER: “President Obama, the IRS has publicly admitted that they were specifically targeting patriot groups and Tea Party organizations for ‘extra scrutiny’.  When did you first learn about this?”

 

Obama-Interview-11-425x273

 

REPORTER: “But how is that possible?  We have now learned that the targeting of patriots and Tea Party groups began as early as March 2010.  The head of the IRS tax-exempt organizations division was informed about this targeting in June 2011, the chief counsel for the IRS knew about this targeting by August 2011, thedeputy commissioner for services and enforcement knew about this targeting byMarch 2012, and IRS Commissioner Steven T. Miller knew about this targeting byMay 2012.  Throughout this period of time, the IRS repeatedly lied to Congress when they were specifically asked about the targeting of conservative groups.  Are you claiming that nobody from your administration ever had any contact with anyone from the IRS about this?”

 

Obama-Interview-2-425x273

 

 

REPORTER: That is what the IRS was claiming at first.  But now the Washington Post is reporting that “IRS officials at the agency’s Washington headquarters sent queries to conservative groups asking about their donors and other aspects of their operations, while officials in the El Monte and Laguna Niguel offices in California sent similar questionnaires to tea-party-affiliated groups.”  That would seem to indicate that this was being coordinated on a nationwide level by someone at the IRS.  Would you care to comment on that?

 

Obama-Interview-3-425x273

 

 

REPORTER: But you were just commenting on it.  Don’t you think that the American people deserve the truth about this?

Obama-Interview-4-425x273

 

 

REPORTER: Okay, let’s switch gears.  Did you know that the Justice Department was spying on AP reporters just months before the 2012 election?  Did you know that two months of cellular, office and home telephone records were secretly obtained without any explanation last April and May?

 

Obama-Interview-5-425x273

 

REPORTER: The Associated Press is now the enemy?  Without a free and independent media, what would keep us from descending into tyranny?

 

Obama-Interview-6-425x273

 

REPORTER: But shouldn’t we be alarmed when government agencies target specific groups of people for their political beliefs?  Breitbart is reporting that the EPA “has routinely charged conservative and watchdog groups fees that the agency has waived for the mainstream media and ‘green’ groups”.  Do you know anything about this?

 

Obama-Interview-7-425x273

 

 

REPORTER: I understand that these are tougher questions than you normally get from the media.  But I think that the American people deserve some answers.  For example, would you like to discuss Benghazi?

 

Obama-Interview-8-425x273

 

REPORTER: Very funny Mr. President.  What about the Fast and Furious scandal?  Would you be willing to talk about that?

 

Obama-Interview-9-425x273

 

REPORTER: Are there any difficult subjects that you would be willing to discuss?  I have questions here about the Secret Service prostitution scandal, Solyndra, the new NSA spy center out in Utah, government ammunition stockpiling, the NDAA, drone strikes, Jeremiah Wright, Tony Rezko and Bill Ayers.  Would you be willing to answer any of those questions?”

There you have it, folks! All of your questions answered! The air has been cleared! Happy now?…..
