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!!!!!

‘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)

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’…..

Harry_Reid_NRSC_Ad_ObamaCare_Liars

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…

The LONG and Winding Road…

******************************************

As the world finds itself on edge once again with the explosive situation between Russia and the Ukraine, the United States is an uncomfortable position resulting from a weak, directionless foreign policy. That seems to be the consensus…even among those who have championed the leadership lacking Obama administration over the years.

I found myself frustratingly adding this latest fiasco to the laundry list of failures and pointlessness of the Obama White House. Once again, our nation edges closer to embarrassment with the foolhardy assessments of a man who governs..and I use that term loosely…the way he THINKS the world should be, as opposed to the reality which clear thinking individuals acknowledge.

Barack Obama seems to have championed failure and incompetence throughout his first term and that mindset continues into the second. At home and abroad, we’ve seen a naive approach and response to our national problems at home and our international interests abroad…

Let’s take a look..in the case you’ve forgotten…shall we?…

jobs-report-fail-obama

The Obama administration has been completely and utterly ineffective in advancing an agenda which promotes economic growth. And manipulating job numbers is NOT the answer….

stimulus-e1318287961619

Any effort at “stimulating” the economy has failed miserably..not to mention the fact a waste of money..literally…

obama-lied-your-healthcare-died-obama-liar-politics-1383343065

I think this one is pretty much self explanatory….

President Obama Speaks On The Death Of US Ambassador In Libya Christopher Stevens

Despite feigning ignorance, incompetence ruled the day under in the Department of State under Hillary Clinton. Benghazi is, and will remain, a perfect example of that. Mrs. Clinton’s famous “what difference does it make..?” response to those questioning the administration’s preparedness and its ability to protect our interests is classic when it comes to demonstrating how truly cavalier and condescending their attitude was…..and continues to be!

obama-sequester-lies

President Obama successfully demonized the Republican opposition in the sequester fiasco, despite the situation escalating due to HIS administration’s efforts…it was nothing more than an attempt at political capital…

jay-carney-irs-scandal

The administration continued the tactic of simply pretending to be unaware of what was happening in its ranks throughout the NSA and IRS selective targeting scandals…

obamainchargeofeverythingresponsiblefornothig

This spotlight photo of shameless Attorney General Eric Holder sums up the Barack Obama legacy in three words..”responsible for nothing”….

The voters of the United States have awarded the highest honor to a man based on nothing more than his skin color. We placed our future in the hands of a man who has shown nothing but callous and blatant disregard for the national well being of the United States. A country made up of individuals easily swayed by the musings and whims of an elitist element that purports to be looking out for our interests..that’s what we’ve become. It’s sad and demeaning to a nation built on promise and effort. Unfortunately those two attributes have all but disappeared under Barack Obama….

Trending Potpourri!

 

 

seasonal-affective-disorder

Well, our return from the “holidaze” sees the nation freaking out over the extreme cold. Of course, media hype accounts for about 70% of that.

It strikes me as frustrating that while so many embrace “the inconvenient truth” when it comes to our natural existence, the REAL INCONVENIENT TRUTH of the dangers imposed upon us by government and elected officials is met with indifference. Debt, spending, national security, spying, the abusive IRS, Benghazi….they’re all still relevant. We just can’t muster the energy required for the outrage.

Barack Obama has finally returned from his extended Hawaii vacation. Obamcare is STILL a mess, extending unemployment benefits takes precedence over actually trying to create an economy where that isn’t necessary, and “income inequality” set the stage of distraction.

A current piece in The Atlantic on pollster Frank Luntz focuses on his frustration with his failure to convince more Americans that we need to save the country from our elected officials. I know EXACTLY how he feels! It boggles the mind that more of us are not clued in to how bad things are. I guess there are not enough of us with that luxury. And if you don’t think Washington politicians aren’t aware of that…well, you just proved my point.

Too many of us would rather focus on the opinions of a swamp rat when it comes to gays. Entertainment Weekly’s Jess Cagle ( @JessCagleEW ) laments that “you (Phil Robertson) managed to get your intense disdain for gay people and patronizing views on African-Americans disseminated all over the place..” I was quick to correct Mr. Cagle that it was his fellow media figures who saw to it Robertson’s views were heralded across an easily distracted nation.

I don’t know. This stuff just goes on and on and on. Anything is fair game when it comes to separating Americans from what is vital to their day to day lives. What do you think?…Are we destined to continue this trend toward our inevitable demise?..

2016 is two years away. We have another presidential campaign and election to endure. I’m hoping..just hoping, mind you…enough of us will have reached a point to where we decide it’s time to come to our collective senses and elect a president who will offer the nation respect, dignity, and hope. Not a personality masquerading as president. We shall see…we shall see…

 

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.

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!

Leave it to the lame stream media to hype the hysteria over the government shutdown….It’s like these people have only government as their day, their night, their reason for living!….

The Economic Collapse Blog sheds a little light on the subject….

GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN? 36 FACTS THAT PROVE ALMOST EVERYTHING IS STILL RUNNING

All of this whining and crying about a “government shutdown” is a total joke.  You see, there really is very little reason why this “government shutdown” cannot continue indefinitely because almost everything is still running.  63 percent of all federal workers are still working, and 85 percent of all government activities are still being funded during this “shutdown”.  Yes, the Obama administration has been making a big show of taking down government websites and blocking off the World War II Memorial, but overall business in Washington D.C. is being conducted pretty much as usual.  It turns out that the definition of “essential personnel” has expanded so much over the years that almost everyone is considered “essential” at this point.  In fact, this shutdown is such a non-event that even referring to it as a “partial government shutdown” would really be overstating what is actually happening.  The following are 36 facts which prove that almost everything is still running during this government shutdown…

#1 According to U.S. Senator Rand Paul, 85 percent of all government activities are actually being funded during this “government shutdown”.

#2 Approximately 1,350,000 “essential” federal employees will continue to work during this “government shutdown”.

#3 Overall, 63 percent of the federal workforce will continue to work during this “government shutdown”.

#4 The U.S. Postal Service will continue to deliver our mail .

#5 U.S. military personnel will remain on duty and will continue to get paid.

#6 Social Security recipients will continue to get their benefits .

#7 Medicare recipients will continue to get their benefits .

#8 Medicaid recipients will continue to get their benefits .

#9 Food stamp recipients will continue to get their benefits .

#10 Those on unemployment will continue to get their benefits .

#11 Federal retirees will continue to get their pensions .

#12 The federal school lunch program has enough money to go through at least the end of this month.

#13 Public schools all over the country will continue to stay open .

#14 Almost all federal law enforcement officials will continue working .

#15 The Federal Reserve will remain “completely functional “.

#16 The Supreme Court will continue to operate normally and federal courts have enough money to keep going for at least two weeks .

#17 TSA employees will continue to molest travelers at our airports.

#18 Air traffic controllers will continue to monitor traffic at our airports.

#19 Hopelessly outmanned border patrol agents will continue to try to stem the tide of illegal immigration.

#20 Visas and passports will continue to be issued by the State Department.

#21 The Veterans Administration will continue to offer substandard medical services , and it will be able to continue processing benefit payments at least for now .

#22 The Obama administration apparently has plenty of money to spend on closing open-air memorials that are usually open to the public 24 hours a day.

#23 The Department of Defense announced the awarding of 94 new contractsworth a combined total of more than 5 billion dollars on September 30th – the day right before the “government shutdown”.

#24 The “government shutdown” has not prevented the new two billion dollar NSA spy center from opening up.

#25 Federal prisons will continue to operate normally .

#26 Amtrak trains will continue to run .

#27 The Patent and Trademark Office will be open .

#28 The Consumer Product Safety Commission will continue to issue product recalls if the products “create an immediate threat to the safety of human life “.

#29 The National Weather Service and the National Hurricane Center will continue to track weather patterns .

#30 If the federal government needs to respond to a natural disaster, this “shutdown” will not affect that .

#31 NASA will continue to support the Mars Rover and the two American astronauts up on the International Space Station.

#32 All city employees of the D.C. government have been deemed “essential”and will continue to go to work.

#33 Even though the Obamacare exchanges are not working properly , people will still be able to access them.

#34 The IRS will continue to collect taxes , but it will be suspending punitive audits of conservative organizations.

#35 Barack Obama will continue to get paid for the full duration of this “shutdown”.

#36 The U.S. Congress will continue to get paid for the full duration of this “shutdown”.

Of course not everything is operating normally during this government shutdown.  Government parks are closed.  The EPA and the Department of Energy have almost totally closed up shop.  But overall, most Americans are not going to notice much of a difference.

And perhaps now is a good time for the American people to evaluate whether or not they actually need a gigantic federal government that wastes enormous mountains of our money.

For example, our federal government recently spent $98,670 to construct a single outhouse in Alaska.

 

government-waste

 

That is more than a lot of Americans pay for their entire houses.

For many more examples like this, please see my previous article entitled “The Waste List: 66 Crazy Ways That The U.S. Government Is Wasting Your Hard-Earned Money “.

It is about time that Washington D.C. started experiencing some of the “belt-tightening” that the rest of the country has been going through.  For far too long, the fatcats in D.C. have been living in an alternate reality where they have been able to live the high life at our expense .  A recent blog post by Daniel Greenfielddiscussed how this shutdown is going to affect the alternate reality that the Obamas have been living in…

The government shutdown has forced Obama to make do with only a quarter of his 1,701 person staff. That would leave 436 “vital” employees. The 90 people who look after his living quarters would be slashed to 15 to “provide minimum maintenance and support”.

 

Obamas-1-percent-lifestyle-300x166

Buckingham Palace, which is twelve times the size of the White House and has its own clockmaker, only has an 800 person staff. King Harald V of Norway and his court make do with 152 staffers. King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden gets by with 203.

On Twitter, Michelle Obama announced that she is unable to Tweet on her own without the aid of all of her sixteen assistants; many of whom take home six figure salaries. There are more directors, associate directors and deputy associate directors on Michelle Obama’s staff than there were in George Washington’s entire administration.

Presidents have fought wars and made peace, explored and annexed vast territories and built a nation out of a handful of colonies with fewer senior staffers than are needed to handle Michelle Obama’s Twitter account.

 

flickr-2994035178-image-640x360

Oh the humanity!  Will Michelle Obama ever tweet again?  And how will the White House continue to function without at least one projectionist on duty at the White House 24 hours a day?

No wonder Barack Obama is so upset about this shutdown.

In the end, this shutdown could turn out to be very good for America.  We have a government that is wildly out of control and that desperately needs to be reigned in.

During the Obama administration, federal debt held by the public has risen by 90 percent , and overall federal government spending has risen by a whopping317 percent since 1990.

 

javadi20130810065420170

So is it really a bad thing that the federal government has been forced to cut back for a little while?

Our politicians can whine and cry all they want.  They won’t be getting any sympathy from me.
