Here´s what has to be understood. It´s all about him. A State of the Union speech normally is about relating a president´s public policies to conditions in the country. An Obama State of the Union speech is about one thing: the Obama project. It would be unfair to say that everything and everyone else in a complex world are irrelevant. But let´s be clear about the priorities: Congress, the Cabinet of courtiers, the press, the people and indeed the national problems described in that State of the Union speech—it´s all brick and mortar in the future Obama monument.
I get the e-mails from barry & co. They tell me how wondeful barry and his agenda are, ask me to join them , volunteer for them and of course they ask for money. I can´t stand this group but they are very well organized and they never quit. I find this to be creepy and frightening.
I always enjoy Daniel Henninger´s dry sense of humor. It almost makes me feel as if I should not panic. However, I don´t think that ValJar will cease whispering in his ear how wonderful and magnificent he is, and he will never cease to believe her.
The speech indicated that Obama is incapable of an original thought.Same rhetoric over and over . Didn´t learn anything in his first term.It helps explain why he appoints such second rate people to the cabinet.And of course it helps that he has the press in his corner.
A better definition of ‘Psychopath’ By Rick Nauert PhD Senior News Editor Reviewed by John M. Grohol, Psy.D. on July 3, 2006
Are some corporate CEO’s, doctors, lawyers, politicians and scientists psychopaths? The answer could be “yes” if you use a definition which labels individuals who are often intelligent and highly charismatic, but display a chronic inability to feel guilt, remorse or anxiety about any of their actions. Tack on the use of violence and intimidation to control others and satisfy selfish needs and the label expands.
All the "investments" that 0bama proposed in his state of the union mean extra spending. Where in the world does he think he will get the money for all these new programs. To say he has reduced spending is a lie. No president has ever spent as much as this guy. For the dems to say we do not have a spending problem is appalling.
I guess I don´t blame columnists for being terrified of what will become of them if they called zero what he really is: an evil, arrogant dictator. He has power-mad monarch in his rearview mirror. He rules now as an emperor. And he has his gaze firmly down the road ahead at pharoahonic "living god" status. The man is a dangerous, delusional psycho, right up there with Caligula.
At least half of Congress should be speaking out, complaining how the little king is not consulting with Congress, but bipassing all of them. What arrogance of Obamao. Worse, what irresponsibility of all the greedy lobbied up legislators we voted for. They keep their mouths shut because they are so busy stealing money and granting corporate privilege in exchange for big bucks. Congress simply cannot speak up and do the checks and balances routine. They all need to write the articles, need to speak of the urgency of this Hitlerian charismatic giveaway, takeaway artist driving us to destruction. Everybody, Speak Up !
Barack Obama is indeed in sync with the public will, so much so that he has largely dismissed and devalued the rest of the system, specifically Congress and the courts. In the next four years, that could prove to be a problem.
I´d say that´s a gross understatement. "...a problem"? It could mean the utter destruction of our 3 co-equal branch system of government, which is exactly what Obama and his followers want.
The man is maniacal. The last maniac who held the highest office in his country destroyed ten million people -- on purpose.
The democrats are drunk on power and control at any price. They have waited for decades for someone to come along with the attributes of Obama. He is black, he is an ideological radical, he is charismatic, he is confident, and most of all he will push to achieve their progressive goals and destroy anyone or anything that stands in his way by any means possible. He is the one they have been waiting for. He is their messiah and they will not let anything or anyone take him down. They will continue to worship him as the country slides into financial chaos, and still, they will blame republicans.
Poster NO. 4 has said it all. There is nothing more to be said. This country is gone. By the time the people of this country wake up to what has happened, it will be too late. We are NOW a communist country and there are not enough of the informed people in this country to do anything about it. Resign yourself to be just like Cuba. There if no other alternative. In just a few years, you will be told what to eat, drink, wear, own and think, so get used to it.
Lil´ Teleprompter´s speeches are incoherent. It is the gift of the BS artist/con man to be able to say things that make sense to those who don´t actively listen. I have met such people, and after you leave the room and think about what they said you call BS.
The man ran on eliminating prosperity for those who listened. I think the only question is whether as prosperity drains away his policies will be blamed ever.
Fool me once? Fool me twice? Fool me three times? Fool me four times ?
#3 has identified ValJar as Obama´s thought controller, which I, too, believe she is. As I´ve said on other posts ValJar is a subversive Svengali.
I just had an OMG moment. In making sure I didn´t give any wrong information about ValJar I went to Wikipedia. To my horror I found that she earned a Juris Doctor (J.D.) from the University of Michigan Law School in 1981. Does that mean she walked the same streets and shopped in the same stores as I did in those years? Yuck.
It´s bad enough that Tom Hayden and Bill Ayers went to the U of M and were present on the campus in the early years of my living there. The other horror is that John F. Kerry came to my adopted state in those terrible years to hold his "hearings" called the Winter Soldier Investigation and now he´s the SOS. John Kerry, Bill Ayers, and Valerie Jarrett - common thread of Michigan in the life of BHO.
How sad for the great University of Michigan to have Ayers and Jarrett as alumni. Believe me, those days were a nightmare in the lovely city of Ann Arbor. It makes me sick to my stomach that the people who brought so much evil to my adopted hometown and state now have a stranglehold on my country.
Finally we got fed up as A2 became more and more liberal, we moved out of the city to the western side of the county, which is a lot more sane and conservative.
Rush Limbaugh´s show yesterday was great. He had an profound epiphany after 5 years of dealing with Obama. Why will Obama not lead? Why is he always campaigning? Why does he have continuing support as the country spirals downward? Go to his site for the full transcript or do as I do and join 24/7. I download the MP3´s and play them when I´m in the car.
"For five years Obama has never once allowed himself to be seen as governing.
He is constantly campaigning against mysterious forces who have ill intentions trying to harm you and this great country. There are these figures behind the screen, behind the curtain. Romney was one. Bush was one. There are others. Obama´s trying to expose them. Throughout history dictators, for example, have never really been blamed for the bad things that happened in their countries. Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Castro, none of them were blamed by the rank-and-file citizenry.
They were, instead, the leaders of the revolution!"
Hysteria: The Environmental Protection Agency chief says global warming is the most urgent threat to public health. Given that the whole climate change frightfest has fallen apart, how do people keep saying such things? EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy says she has dedicated her life to protecting the environment. It´s too bad she is not more dedicated to reality. If she were, her comments Monday before the left-wing Center for American Progress would have been different. But McCarthy knew who she was speaking to and told the group what it wanted to hear when she said, "I really see no greater issue and
´We have communicated in no uncertain terms with every player in the region that that´s a red line for us and that there would be enormous consequences if we start seeing movement on the chemical weapons front or the use of chemical weapons."— Barack Obama, Aug. 20, 2012 "First of all, if you´ve got health insurance, you like your doctors, you like your plan, you can keep your doctor, you can keep your plan. Nobody is talking about taking that away from you."—Barack Obama, multiple versions What would you rather be: an American lost inside an ObamaCare exchange or a Syrian rebel?
Contrary to what you might have heard, there really was a world communist conspiracy.Its purpose was not just agitation but propaganda. To bring it about, V.I. Lenin recruited a special corps of propagandists for what was to become the Communist International. For a fanatic like Lenin, it wasn´t enough merely to have a communist revolution in Russia. He wanted communism to take over the world, the fulfillment of Marx´s exhortation "Workers of the world, unite!" according to Stephane Courtois and Jean-Louis Panne, authors of "The Black Book of Communism: Crimes, Terror, Repression," published in 1999. Lenin also feared that unless other countries
For all of their mutual public admiration, Presidents Clinton and Obama react differently to political trouble. Bill moved to the middle, while Barack always moves left. So it´s no surprise that Mr. Obama is responding to his ObamaCare rollout slump by doing his best Elizabeth Warren imitation. Mr. Obama returned to his favorite theme of rising income inequality on Wednesday, which he called "the defining challenge of our time." He ought to know since few Presidents have done more to increase inequality than he has. Median household income has fallen since the economic recovery began, while the rich who own capital
Immigration: Strong signs point to House Speaker John Boehner leading an amnesty cave-in that delivers millions of new Democratic votes. Republicans should man up and put border security front and center. The two words "Becky Tallent" resonate with conservatives in Congress the way "Howard Baker" did when Ronald Reagan welcomed the liberal Republican senator as chief of staff during Iran-Contra, bringing most of the Reagan agenda to a screeching halt; or the way the words "Susan Kennedy" did a decade ago when newly elected California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger crushed his supporters by hiring the hard-line Democratic operative as chief of staff. Speaker
In a wide-ranging economic stump speech Wednesday, President Obama focused laser-like on the growing gap between America´s rich and poor, despite polling that shows hardly anyone believes it´s the most pressing issue facing the U.S. The issue-pivot was an effort to help him move away from the drumbeat of criticism of his policies on health insurance reform and Iran´s nuclear program, one White House insider said on background. ´Rising inequality and declining mobility is bad for our democracy,´ he said during an event hosted by the far-left Center for American Progress. ´People get the bad taste that the system is rigged.´ ´I believe
With all of Bubba´s women, it turns out he had a thing for Mary Jane too. Former President Bill Clinton said Tuesday that despite his denials in 1992, he was always honest about his past marijuana use. ´I never denied that I used marijuana,´ Clinton told Jorge Ramos on Fusion TV. ´I told the truth.´ But during a campaign event before his first presidential election, then-Arkansas Gov. Clinton said he was no pothead. ´When I was in England, I experimented with marijuana a time or two, and didn´t like it,´ Clinton said then. ´I didn´t inhale, and I didn´t try it again.´ Clinton dissembled whtn
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
During a presentation at the White House in which President Barack Obama touted the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, the president declared that his signature health care reform law was not going to be repealed. This assertion led his administration members, his staff, and audience members to rise from their seats and give the president a standing ovation. Obama said that ACA opponents’ alternative to the health care reform law is to champion repeal and going back to the health care delivery system status quo ante. He specifically cited Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who he said was asked directly for
A woman has revealed how difficult it is to eat healthily and stay full when living off an average food stamp budget. Melinda Moulton, from Huntington, Vermont, was one of 200 people to take part in the 3Squares Challenge, which saw her living for a week on just $36 worth of food, or around $1.71 a meal. Opting to try and eat as healthily as possible, Ms Moulton resorted to cheap foods like yogurt for breakfast, two handfuls of peanuts for lunch and lentil stew for dinner, all of which left her unsatisfied.´I don´t know how people do it,´ said
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Nineteen people stood behind President Obama on stage in the Executive Office Building Tuesday as the president kicked off a new campaign to promote Obamacare. One of those people, a young Florida woman named Monica Weeks, introduced Obama after telling the story of being struck with Crohn´s Disease at age 19 and receiving expensive treatments for several years that were covered by her parents´ health care plan — because Obamacare allowed her to remain on that plan until age 26. Now, Weeks said, she has coverage through a job. "The Affordable Care Act gives young adults who are just starting
