Inaugurating President Chamberlain
National Review Online, by Roger Kimball

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 1/21/2013 10:46:05 PM

Obama’s speech: Very long on gaseous generalities; exiguous with details. “Par for the course,” you say. Yes and no. Yes, an inaugural speech is intended to set the tone for an administration rather than spell out in detail a policy program. I appreciated, as must every American of good will, his promise that his oath of office was before “God and country, not party or faction.” I wish I could believe it. Most leftist commentators I’ve checked in on have regarded the speech as they regard Barack Obama, as a consummate example of “pragmatism.”

Chamberlain was a naive useful idiot who ultimately saw the light. Obama is in league with our jihadist enemies. A traitor.

There used to be a penalty to be paid for that.

Yeah, BO is a terrorist who never solves any problems, because he doesn´t want to land the plane. Just crash it into something hard. That´s why he borrows with abandon; counsels that spending is the key; demonizes all who propose a more prudent way. Today we found out that Stinky the Gunrunner provided the weapons for the Algerian massacre via Libya. Mexico, Libya, Syria, and now Mali. And like a good gunrunner, Stinky tried to profit from both sides of the conflict by charging the French to haul their troops. Heard this before? Of course you have.

Obama is the closest thing to a potential dictator in the Oval Office in all American history. He definitely fits the profile. Obama and Hitler could be related they have so much in common.

A good catch. There is no way the "peace in our time" phrase was not intentional. Obama is signaling to freedom´s Islamist enemies that he is Chamberlain, not Churchill. But didn´t they already know that?

#6, they may realize he´s on their side, but they hate him anyway! I wonder about that ´private´ swearing in Sunday. I imagine him swearing eternal loyalty to Allah, Mao, the prophet Muhammad, etc, on a Koran once owned by Osama himself. And oh yeah, instead of "So help me God", I imagine he said "So help me, Me!" [like George Burns in Oh, God]

Obama sworn on a stack of Bibles that he would uphold the Constitution.

In his speech, he told us that he would fundamentally transform our country to his liking despite anything the Constitution says.

Tis hard to discern the basis of Roosevelt´s dislike foe Joe Kennedy. Yes, Joe Kennedy was an isolationist, but so was Charles Lindberg. I suspect FDR´s dislike of old Joe was his potential foe being a political rival. As for the ´Bamster, I think he is trying to insulate himself from a serious case of karma that is going to explode on his second watch.

Obama is so fundamentally wrong in his thinking. I am astounded that he has the guts to say what he does, but when your whole life you have had people telling you how wonderful you are and then without any real qualifications or accomplishments you rise to the highest office in the land, apparently he is as gullible as the rest of the wacky left are. It must be something in their DNA because they believe the most absurd and easily rebutted political philosophy to come down the pike. They care nothing for facts. It all comes down to how they "feel" and people can get very passionate about their feelings. The RNC needs to produce short hip clever 30 second spots on TV and use social media to try and educate those who think and do what they are told. Once the pain hits, and it will, they will be more open to listen. The RNC desperately needs needs some new blood when it comes to reaching the Obama voters. They expect nasty and stubborn but they don´t expect anything effective. Humor with bite and truth will make them squeal. We have to beat them at their own game. Please, I am begging the Republicans think outside the box or Obama´s dreams of his father will become reality.

Aarghhh!!!
It was Richard Nixon. "Peace in our time, and in our children´s time." Much more recent than Chamberlain.
Obama is remarkably Nixonian in many ways. His making (and then breaking) promises. His excessive desire for pomp and ceremony. His coterie of crooked advisors.
Now the question: what will cause the collapse? Benghazi? Fast and Furious? Somalia? Syria? Blagoievich and the Senate seat sale? Where is the Zippy Whitewater? Or maybe the payoff to Rev. Wright?
So many cans of worms. So little time.

Stay tuned, folks.
It is going to be a rough ride.

When I heard that phrase yesterday, I said "Neville Obama".

“Peace in our time,” the president said, “requires the constant advance of those principles that our common creed describes: tolerance and opportunity; human dignity and justice.”

The problem with the Left´s "tolerance" and "opportunity" is that it´s always for evil. Human dignity cannot come from that, but, justice will come one day for those who do evil and those who do right.

Yes what Obama is doing to the country real time makes it hard to watch him under any circumstances. Why rub it in? If one does watch, get the foam tv brick ready. The amazing aspect is the royal treatment he got even though he has numerous scandals on his record. You suck and full steam ahead!

If you want to get under a liberal´s skin, when they say things like the economy is better under Obama, just mention the credit downgrade and it being the first under any president; they get livid and blame it on pubs. Bringing up the execution style killing of the gay members of his church such as Young also sets them off, when libs mention how he´s on the rainbow people´s side. More so if one posts the link about Young´s mother(former cop) speaking out to say Obama had it done to protect his reputation pre-election.

I opened up on the libs like a Vulcan cannon on the 21st. I wanted it on record on inauguration day just why this man doesn´t deserve another term.

#19 - brilliant! We can all call to mind the photographs of Obama with a flunky holding the Imperial Bumbershoot over Caesar Obama´s Imperial Cranium.

As for the rest -- Obama seems to be a practitioner of the Inverted Truth. We all know, for example, that when he talks about "civility" he means to ramp up his partisan nastiness. If he says, "Peace in Our Time" he really means he intends to embroil us in conflict, defeat, and humiliation abroad. In other words, just take anything he says, invert the meaning, and you will have his real meaning.

Foreign policy is just that annoying little thing that occasionally takes Obama´s attention away from primary job of "fundamentally transforming" America.

He´s an empty suit, and the gangsters that run our government have (at least) another four years of robbing our future in order to bestow favors on their supporters. It´s simply the Mafia in less flashy suits.

I dug this out in absolutely fabulous Martin Amis´s book: Koba the Dread: laughter and the twenty million. This is the quote:
[..] is unhappy at not being able to convince everyone, himself included that he is greater than everyone; and this unhappiness of his may be his most human trait, perhaps the only human trait in him. But what is not human, but rather something devilish, is that because of this unhappiness he cannot help taking revenge on people, on all people but especially those who are in any way better or higher than he.
Whose name is in braces? Stalin´s - that´s what his party comrade Bukharin said about him in 1936. In 1938 he was killed by stalin.

Finally someone sees that history is repeating itself! I´ve been posting here for weeks that it is 1938 again. However, I never thought to compare Obama to Neville Chamberlain, but it works.

Like #4 I agree that: "Obama is the closest thing to a potential dictator in the Oval Office in all American history."

And as #2 says:"Obama is in league with our jihadist enemies. A traitor.
There used to be a penalty to be paid for that."

I hope the NRA membership grows by millions everyday. That, at least, would give me hope that Americans aren´t going to buy Obama´s schict.

A recent post told that Obama has read about 700 teleprompter speeches since he became president. I for one am so damn sick of hearing his voice, day after miserable day, that I wish they´d just turn the damn teleprompter around so I could mute his voice and read the speech myself.

I cannot stand the thought of having to look at this man for another four years. I just absolutely cannot stand him. I guess I will have to though and besides that, I think he wants to be a president (with a very small "p") for more than four years. I think the people who elected him will be very sorry for their vote in a not too distant future.

Social Security stops trying

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual
