The state of our union is weak and fraying. This president has launched attacks on faith and is going out of his way to divide our people. Our economy is not growing, it contracted in the final quarter of 2012. Our economy is not growing jobs. On the international front, North Korea greeted President Obama’s 2013 rendition of Give Me More Money with a nuclear test — a sure sign that his strategy of engagement, which his soon-to-be defense secretary supports, is a failure.(Snip)Barack Obama is the absurd president. He makes no attempt to make any sense,
"He makes no attempt to make any sense" - Nutshell, meet nut. And the reason King Barack doesn´t even try is precisely because his ignorant supporters do not want to hear nor have to deal with any kind of sense, common or uncommon. They desire only the meaningless blather of political correctness, that ultimate revenge on reason, effort, good judgment and clarity. The Celebration of Ignorance - the Obama "presidency" - continues on, all blinders securely in place.
Obama should be subjected to a no confidence vote by the American people and him and cabal of Chico thugs sent packing along with him.
Obama´s economic policies have been the biggest colossal failure in out life time and he blows it off as unfinished business.
This means that in order for the economy to recover,it has to have a compete government takeover.The problem is people who support this fantasy really don´t want to work,leaving no one to carry out the day to day business in this country.
Even if you paid these slugs $20 an hour to drive a tractor trailer,chances are the cargo would be stolen or robbed.
Surprise! Surprise! America!...So what did we expect last night from this undocumented, professional Marxist agitator from the mean streets of The Windy City´s South Side...who has never held a regular job in the private sector, to include managing a corner candy store or even a McDonald´s milkshake machine, never served a day in America´s Armed Services, associates with notorious domestic terrorists and suffers from a severe case of narcissistic personality disorder?
This is an excellent article. Everyone should read!
Some of my favorite lines from the article... "Reality never seems to intrude on this president’s world. He has his ideology and he is sticking to it." AMEN! "America, you were warned but you re-elected him anyway. And that’s the state of our union." and AMEN!
#3, with due respect, we had a "confidence" vote in Nov. We must all live with this horrible mistake for the next 4 years. Maybe then, and I have my doubts, we will unite and defeat leftism that is killing our constitution and nation.
Really, I would have watched the SOTU speech but I couldn´t force myself to do it. It would have been like watching the Chris Dorner of American presidents hunkered down in a shootout with reality as the Constitution and our economy burned down all around him...but without the same happy ending. Someday when forensic historians dig through the ashes of our charred country, perhaps they´ll discover the reasons for the madness that drove him to do it...and also drove so many others to cheer him on as he fired away.
The best way to bamboozle a nation is to hi-jack their common language by twisting the meaning of words and promoting big lies. If we were still an educated nation, Obama would have been tossed out in last November´s election like the incompetent Carter was in 1980. But we are no longer an educated nation. Decades of dumbing down has produced an electorate eager to be taken care of and anxious to believe. Obama´s the perfect culmination of our demise.
"This is an excellent article. Everyone should read!"
Why? Did Obama say something new? Was there something you didn´t already know? I don´t need to read a rehash of his performance for the past 4 years - and what we have to look forward to for the next 4.
I can´t listen to him or critics any longer - it´s the same thing day-after-day. I´m just trying to live through it.
There will always be enemies of this nation and freedom. The problem is not Obama, as bad as he is, it is the people who are willingly giving up their freedom to have him "fundamentally transform" this nation. And a Congress who sits by watching violation after violation of our fundamental constitution be violated. Where is the line that will be crossed saying this is too much?
The democrats bring illegals to the SOTU, which is against the law because they have no SS numbers...and irony of all,,,O´s SS is in question. And I don´t trust the legal immigrants either, who come here with prejudice to vote for big government,,,,since that is their background. Legal immigrants do not vote for Republicans. I am at least encouraged a little with Boehner´s expression which seemed to say ´I have had enough´.
I watched the dog show too and was horrified at the choice for best in show. The wire-haired pointer, the fox hound, the smooth coat terrier and the sheepdog were all gorgeous. That little ratty black thing that won - what was that? It certainly wasn´t a dog. Still, it beat the he!! out of watching the snake oil sale at the Capitol.
i am SO with #17...i no longer care to hear anything from resident loser or his critics...i too am just trying to survive this..i still donate to this site,but that is all i care to do for our cause...it sucks,really,that it has to be like this..
An excellent piece, rendered cogent by its use of crisp, short, logical, clear sentences.
It’s all absurd. Barack Obama is the absurd president. He makes no attempt to make any sense, yet the media will pretend that he is a visionary. The reality is, Barack Obama is just a very powerful crank.
In short, he is drunk with power and doesn´t really care whom he hurts so long as his bizarre wishes get carried out.
He hits you with one hand, then wants you to help him with the other.
Dogs who get beaten but fed by an abusive owner, fawn obsequiously over the owner every time the owner comes back to feed the dog. Obama & Co. are abusive dog owners and American liberal are the beaten dogs. He keeps hurting them, but passing out free stuff. Then the liberals come back for more, licking his hand in submission.
Bingo # 22, bingo. In my view, there isn´t an opposition party in Washington. They are all bureaucrats that only want to feather their own nest and damn what happens to the country in the meantime. The majority of them come to Washington with nothing and retire with millions. But money can´t buy their vote? Sarcasm intended. What ever happened to the checks and balances of our three divisions of government? Does anyone in government really care about the Constitution anymore?
Raising the minimum wage is such a demagogic piece of foolery. What else can he possibly do to increase unemployment? Now, if you want a "liveable" wage, you can do what Nixon suggested, a "negative income tax," basically a guaranteed minimum income, paid for by government, not employers, or work within the EIC. No. This isn´t sophisticated economics. Again he´s either an idiot, purposively destructive of the U.S., or both.
I remember learning about Checks and Balances in government class, and thinking how it would protect the people and the government. Turns out that it means nothing at all because it can´t and won´t be enforced when you have the media on your side. It´s the traitorous media that really means Hussein can get away with anything.
I´m sorry, but I´m still trying to decipher this coded message. He never comes straight out and says what he means. Then Jay Carney can come out when questioned and say"That´s not what the President said".....
The SOTU address was last night? Huh, I was too busy watching White Collar on Netflix. So as I understand from the article, Obama is still president, hates logic, the US, and the military. Yup, nothing has changed from last year.
I went to Sams Club shopping on Monday and Tuesday this week. On both days I observed two seperate black families paying for their boatload of groceries with their Welfare Bridge Cards. They all wore very happy faces as they got their government freebies. When I consider the above mentioned I know why Obama got reelected and I know why he said what he did yesterday. All of his welfare serfs have got his back and he can say and do whatever he wishes without the fear of any repercussions at all.
FOX/Bing did a good thing last night by allowing viewers to record their reactions to the speech. 12.9 million people checked in. The overall reaction to the speech was negative hitting over 70% negative when 0 talked about climate change and gun control. I was surprised that voters identified as Democrat didn’t like the speech either although they weren’t quite as negative as were Republicans and Independents. Fact is people didn’t buy what 0 was selling last night.
Barry the Bungler will meet his first real resistance when obamacare kicks in and the people will be forced to pay for substandard healthcare and not be able to pay the premiums let alone the deductibles. The IRS will meet massive resistance to the fine known as a "tax" on tax returns. Young, healthy people will say "screw it" to any medical insurance. Then there will be more colorful resistance when the various attempted gun grabs begin.
Since congress still won´t work up the courage, the people will start a movement to remove obama by "executive order." At that point we will get our first glimpse of ugly.
Excellent article, but I´ll differ with Preston on this: if you view Emperor NerØbama as a demonic intruder out to destroy this nation, then he is very, very "coherent". Remember that the devil is the father of lies (see Jn 8:44). In that light, our Dear Leader is not "incoherent" - he is simply a liar.
2 million votes separated us from this monster-in-chief. I say 2 because he won by 3. If 2mil of those "votes" had gone the other way, we could´ve saved this country. I personally believe those were manufactured, but if more had shown up on the GOP side to offset them . . . sigh . . .
Bizarro about sums it up for me.
And he gets away with it for one reason, & one reason only: our complicit main stream press. Think they would´ve given Nixon this kind of a pass? Reagan? Dole? Bush 1? Bush 2? McCain/Palin? Romney/Ryan?
The speech did not give any indication of an original thought passing through Obama´s head. He simply repeated the same ideas that lead nowhere during his first term.He just never learned anything.His inadequacies explain why he surrounds himself with a bunch of second raters.
#42, "Obama said, ´What I´m about to suggest won´t cost a dime´."
President Obama was playing with the English language. He was telling the truth when he said that his suggestions, "won´t cost a dime". They won´t cost ´a dime´ - they will cost trillions of dimes.
Excellent article by Mr. Preston. It was difficult to choose just one but for me the most chilling observation came in this paragraph: "His actions amount to a hacking of the US.. Constitution. Under our system, the two houses of Congress serve as checks on each other, and together, they serve as checks on the president’s power, and the three branches check and balance one another. But this president has the Senate in his back pocket through its leader, Sen. Harry Reid. Reid renders Obama impervious to congressional and court action against him. Thus, when his recess appointments were judged illegal by the courts, he simply ignored the courts. Harry Reid has his back."
Better to listen to the authentic, ´state of the union,´ as communicated in the recent heartfelt speeches by Dr. Ben Carson, Sen. Rubio and Sen. Rand Paul rather than the theatrical scripted one last night by 0bama, and rendered through his, ´´fractured bizzarro lens!´´
I say the Congress gives him an 12 cent budget in case it comes out to be a dime and then extra for his 2 cents worth. Funny how nothing costs a dime and we have a 16 trillion deficit. How can this be? Don´t ask, just bow.
The powerful uncle of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has been executed as a "traitor for all ages," the official news agency reported. Jang Song Thaek faced a special military tribunal Thursday and was convicted of "anti-party, counter-revolutionary factional acts" in a bid to overthrow the the communist country´s leadership, KCNA reported Friday in Pyongyang. The state news agency did not say when or how Jang was killed. North Korean media reported Monday that Jang had been purged for crimes that included faction-building, corruption, drug use and womanizing. He was considered the country´s most powerful figure after his nephew. State TV aired
Not only could you "shoot your eye out, kid," you might also go to jail for owning that BB gun in certain states. New Jersey and other jurisdictions make little or no distinction between Daisy´s classic Red Ryder BB gun immortalized in the film "A Christmas Story," and real guns. They must be registered and are subject to the same laws as any firearms. “In all honesty, kids who are charged are looking at mandatory jail time,” said New Jersey attorney William Proetta, adding that under the state’s Graves Act, a conviction could lead to prison time. “The only defense is to
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced this morning that nearly 365,000 Americans had signed up for private health insurance under Obamacare. The vast majority came from 14 states running their own insurance exchanges, while 137,000 came by way of HealthCare.gov, the much-faulted federal Web site that handles enrollment for the remaining states. But amid the rush to enroll as many people as possible by the Dec. 23 deadline, there’s a huge caveat that isn’t getting much public attention: For coverage to take effect on Jan. 1, enrollees must pay their first month’s premium on time. (The deadline varies
If you like your selfie, you can keep your selfie. Period. Unless, of course, you’re Barack Obama, in which case, you better delete it from your smartphone pronto, unless you’d like to spend the next three or four months dining on hot tongue and cold shoulder. You didn’t need a fake interpreter from an old Woody Allen movie to translate Moochelle Obama’s body language. So there they were, Barry, British Prime Minister David Cameron and the hot-wife leader of Denmark, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, hamming it up like it was the 25th anniversary reunion of the Choom Gang. Some Krazy Kids, horsing around, waiting for
The British security firm that failed to protect the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, from a terrorist attack a year ago that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens was told by the State Department to avoid the media, the latest example of stonewalling over the attack. In newly uncovered emails received by the public watchdog group Judicial Watch, State was notified that the firm, Blue Mountain Group, was being pressed for answers about the surprise attack. Instead of giving the group the green light to answer the media, State ordered the firm to go into hiding. “Thank you so much for informing us about
Regularly scheduled elections are a hallmark of the American political system. In 18th-century Britain, the monarch could call new elections on a whim, and our Founders saw in that arrangement a seed of tyranny. The Constitution they designed requires elections for Congress every two years, and the next such elections are less than a year away. This is good news for conservatives as they continue to oppose the Obama administration. This president has been tremendously helped by having a Democratic-controlled Senate for his first five years in office. Harry Reid’s masterful, if not entirely virtuous, use of Senate rules has
The gangster state of North Korea became a nuclear power in 2006–07, despite lots of foreign aid aimed at precluding just such proliferation — help usually not otherwise accorded such a loony dictatorship. Apparently the civilized world rightly suspected that, if nuclear, Pyongyang would either export nuclear material and expertise to other unstable countries, or bully its successful but non-nuclear neighbors — or both. The United States has given billions of dollars in foreign aid to Pakistan, whose Islamist gangs have spearheaded radical anti-American terrorism. Ever since a corrupt Pakistan went nuclear in 1998, it has been able to extort such
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there. Photos of the day Uruguay legalizes marijuana, Kiev police pull back from protesters, aging U.S. prison population and more. Tuesday´s Photos of the day Would you write this way about a man? About O’Reilly himself? At least that’s what Megyn Kelly might ask at
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
