The State of Our Union
Rendered in a
Fractured Bizarro Lens

PJ Media, by Bryan Preston

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/13/2013 4:33:17 AM

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.

And who exactly was surprised by anything in the article or the speech? Look at the last 4 years and all of his previous politics.

My biggest concern is that he was re-elected. The electorate is either selfish or stupid or both.

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?

Oh, but we connect with him emotionally and he cares about us.

He was reelected for the above reasons even though, as a recent poll shows, the people disagreed with every principle he holds.

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.

Did not watch. What difference does it make? Even our comments on Lucianne are a way for us to vent our frustration and disgust. We do not or cannot change anything, now.

Anything Zip says is a waste of breath. He will act by EO and do whatever he wants, and no one in Congress or the Senate will do a darn thing. Absolutely, nothing.

Americans are in jeopardy of having this tyrant take over, and again, no one is trying or can stop him. Bad times.

I chose not to watch for all the reasons cited here plus I couldn´t stand to see one more photo op of "Gabby" Giffords holding hands with her husband and of course, the Newtown parents.

I drive by Arlington Cemetery everyday on my way to work and everyday a tear wells up in my eye - for this "state" of the union?

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.

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.

It´s sick.

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 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.

Obama said, "What I´m about to suggest won´t cost a dime." He then listed I don´t know how many things that clearly would.

Perhaps congress should pass a bill authorizing all of it, with a collective budget of 9 cents.

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?

#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."

Edinburg, Texas There’s a small crowd munching on tacos and tortilla chips here at El Pato, a local chain restaurant in Texas’s Rio Grande Valley. We’re a short drive from the Mexican border, in a part of the state that’s nearly 90 percent Hispanic. The folks here are noticeably whiter (or more Anglo, as Texans would say) than that, but plenty of Hispanics have shown up, too. Fifty-six-year-old Greg Abbott, the powerful attorney general and Republican nominee for governor, is discussing how years of incredible economic growth are transforming Texas.

Now the company is getting flak over Eich’s forced resignation from a company he helped co-found.

A half-dozen years ago, Brendan Eich donated $1,000 to the campaign for Proposition 8, the California ballot initiative that set out to ban same-sex marriage. It passed with 52 percent of the vote, but was later overturned by the courts. (Snip)Calls for his ouster were premised on the notion that all support for Proposition 8 was hateful, and that a CEO should be judged not just by his or her conduct in the professional realm, but also by political causes he or she supports as a private citizen. If that attitude spreads, it will damage our society.

KUALA LUMPUR—A family member of the captain of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 said the family is frustrated with the suspicion surrounding the pilot´s motives and character. Capt. Zaharie Ahmad Shah, with over 18,000 hours of flying time, commanded Flight 370 from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8 when it disappeared with 239 passengers and crew aboard. Fariq Abdul Hamid was the second officer. Investigators looking into the plane´s disappearance have focused on the pilot, co-pilot and crew members but haven´t ruled out the possibility that one or more passengers were involved, people familiar with the investigation said Friday. Mr. Zaharie´s relative,

“Truly, this man was the son of God.” Thus speaks a Roman centurion at the end of George Stevens’s inaptly named The Greatest Story Ever Told (1965). It’s a line that always gets a big laugh, partly because the idea of anything so irreligious as Hollywood hokum commenting on the provenance of Jesus Christ is axiomatically funny, but mostly because the centurion is played by John Wayne, a movie star who might have known a son of a gun when he saw one, but who patently knew precious little else. Except, one learns from Scott Eyman’s exhaustive new biography, John

When future generations come to look back on the alarm over global warming that seized the world towards the end of the 20th century, much will puzzle them as to how such a scare could have arisen. They will wonder why there was such a panic over a 0.4 per cent rise in global temperatures between 1975 and 1998, when similar rises between 1860 and 1880 and 1910 and 1940 had given no cause for concern. They will see these modest rises as just part of a general warming that began at the start of the 19th century, as the

With no evidence that Russia has any plans to withdraw its troops from the border of Ukraine, some former Soviet states are worried about their own regional security. Farther east, other countries, closely aligned with Moscow rather than the West, say they are trying to ease tensions. And several central Asian states have responded by simply staying silent. The United States and NATO announced this week that they are boosting military support in the Baltic region, which is on especially high alert. Moscow has long complained about Russians´ rights there, and its takeover of Crimea suggests it may be willing to

Reginald Clarke is someone Obamacare was designed to help. The 55-year-old, who was homeless for a time, now has an apartment in Gardena and a street-cleaning job that pays him $14,000 a year. He hadn´t visited a doctor in four or five years. Then, last fall, his girlfriend told him he would be eligible for Medi-Cal starting Jan. 1. "I was excited. I could go get a physical," he said. "There are a few things I need." But joy turned to exasperation when Clarke´s application, filed in December, was mistakenly rejected — and then seemed to disappear from county and state computer systems. By law,

The president gave two speeches this week, one in the Rose Garden to talk about Obamacare and one in Ann Arbor, Mich., to push minimum wage increases. What did we learn? We learned that President Obama is most comfortable in campaign mode, and his campaigning has gotten downright ugly. His Rose Garden speech was a typical self-congratulatory moment for supposedly hitting 7.1 million Obamacare sign-ups — although we know that once again, the White House is ignoring some inconvenient truths. We also learned that the president was vain enough to asked the networks to cover his speech in prime time, but

Muslim moms and dads in Dearborn, Mich. are upset after students received flyers promoting an Easter Egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The parents say the egg hunt violates the U.S. Constitution. The Muslims told the Detroit Free-Press that they were concerned about the religious implications of Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church’s “Eggstravaganza!” They were also troubled by images of a bunny rabbit. “It really bothered my two kids,” parent Majed Moughni, told the newspaper. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church.

A senior CIA official has died in an apparent suicide this week from injuries sustained after jumping off a building in northern Virginia, according to sources close to the CIA. CIA spokesman Christopher White confirmed the death and said the incident did not take place at CIA headquarters in McLean, Va. “We can confirm that there was an individual fatally injured at a facility where agency work is done,” White told the Washington Free Beacon. “He was rushed to a local area hospital where he subsequently died.

In Dearborn, Mich., home to over 40,000 Americans of Arab descent, some Muslim parents have complained about flyers handed out at public schools advertising an Easter egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The Muslim parents assert that the flyers – emblazoned with the word “Eggstravaganza!” – violate the separation of church and state widely ascribed to the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause, reports the Detroit Free Press. Students at three Dearborn elementary schools received the flyers. A large number of Muslim students attend the schools. The “Eggstravaganza!” is scheduled to take place on April 12 event at Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Following her speech at the “Women of the World Summit” in New York City on Thursday, Hillary Clinton was asked this simple question by a moderator: “When you look at your time as Secretary of State, what are you most proud of? And what do you feel was unfinished, and maybe have another crack at one day?” Here are a few excerpts from her response: ”Look, I really see my role as Secretary, in fact leadership in general in a democracy, as a relay race. When you run the best race you can run, you hand off the baton.” “Some

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

It doesn’t matter if he, an African-American, gets called “obroni,” the local word for white person, in the streets, or if some of his family can’t quite figure out what he’s doing in this West African nation so far from his roots in North Carolina.

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep. Mike Rogers, who led all national politicians last year with 26 appearances over 12 months. Romney has

Reclusive movie star Doris Day greeted fans with a rare smile and a wave from her balcony on Thursday as she rang in her 90th birthday. The Oscar-nominee appeared in great spirits as she made the rather regal gesture from her home in Carmel-by-the-Sea, on California´s north coast - a quiet little enclave also home to Clint Eastwood - the first time she´s been seen in public since 2008. After opening up to Closer Weekly about her milestone birthday, revealing she´s still very much in demand, with scripts pouring in all the time, the silver-haired beauty appeared as sprightly as
