The State of Obama
Wall Street Journal, by Daniel Henninger

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 2/13/2013 8:03:19 PM

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.

Article 1
Section 7

"All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House."

If Boner and the girls in the House don´t stop this revolution in the House then others will be forced to stop it in the streets.

The quality of ugly needed now will pale in comparison to it´s alternative.

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.

You make investments to generate income or profits or for appreciation in value. Governments cannot make "investments". . .. it´s an oxymoron! More of Obozo´s deceptive lying.

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.

#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.

From Rush:

"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!"

He goes on. It´s worth the read.

Monday night, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes used an essay on Slate about the Bundy Ranch standoff and race as a jumping off point to discuss how this story would be different if rancher Cliven Bundy’s armed supporters were black. “When is it that people take up arms against the federal or state government, point their arms at federal agents and face no consequence for it?” Hayes asked. “The answer is to that is hardly ever.” Hayes went on to imagine how Fox News react to the New Black Panthers if they decided to “greet law enforcement with long guns.” Or what if the

BUNKERVILLE, Nev. — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says “something is going to happen” to get Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy to stop letting his cattle graze on federal land. “It’s obvious that you can’t just walk away from this. And we can speculate all we want to speculate to what’s going to happen next,” Reid told KSNV-TV. “But I don’t think it’s going to be tomorrow that something is going to happen, but something will happen. We are a nation of laws, not of men and women.” Reid called militias staying at Bundy’s Bunkerville ranch “domestic violent terrorist-wannabes.” Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev.,

Eric Holder: Obama’s ‘Clemency

Attorney General Eric Holder criticized drug sentences doled out under “the old regime” in a video Monday announcing the Obama administration’s “Clemency Project 2014.” “In 2010, President Obama signed the Fair Sentencing Act reducing unfair disparities in sentences imposed on people for offenses involving different forms of cocaine. But there’s still too many people in federal prison who were sentenced under the old regime and who, as a result, will have to spend far more time in prison than they would if sentenced today for exactly the same crime. This is simply not right,” Holder says in the video. President Obama could

Several weeks ago the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia sponsored a debate–more a discussion–between me and Thaddeus Mason Pope about end of life care under the Affordable Care Act. He supports medical futility. I oppose it. We went from there. I began my presentation with the quote in the headline above–asserting that Palin’s term “death panels” may have put a spear through the heart of Obamacare. I then said: People are afraid of centralized bureaucrats dictating whether Craig’s [the moderator’s terminally ill babies) children can have medical care, whether my 96-year-old mother can have medical care, whether people with disabilities can have medical

Corruption: The senator who once guarded funding for a cowboy poetry festival in his home state now thinks those who stand in the way of his family´s increasing fortunes for defending their land are domestic terrorists. Cliven Bundy now finds himself being called a "domestic terrorist" for disputing the payment of grazing fees to a federal government he believes does not or at least should not own the 84% of Nevada that his cattle graze upon. "Those people who hold themselves out to be patriots are not. They´re nothing more than domestic terrorists," said Sen. Harry Reid last Thursday. "I repeat: What

Although this editorial was written more than 20 years ago, just replace "Clinton" with "Obama," and it all applies perfectly to ObamaCare, from the phony promises to the bogus financing scheme to the massive new bureaucracy. It was this editorial and as many as 100 more like it in IBD that helped spare the nation the tragedy that would have been HillaryCare.

´Imperial presidency" perfectly describes what the Obama administration has become as it increasingly violates the limits on its power defined by the Constitution. Criticisms of how President Obama is overstepping his authority are now being heard from all sides of the political spectrum. A remarkable 33-page report posted on the Internet by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor proves how imperial the Obama administration has become. This easy-to-read report, which can be downloaded from majorityleader.gov, details dozens of examples where the current occupant of the White House is exercising powers that the Constitution doesn´t give him.

The American Middle Class Is

The American middle class, long the most affluent in the world, has lost that distinction. While the wealthiest Americans are outpacing many of their global peers, a New York Times analysis shows that across the lower- and middle-income tiers, citizens of other advanced countries have received considerably larger raises over the last three decades. After-tax middle-class incomes in Canada — substantially behind in 2000 — now appear to be higher than in the United States. The poor in much of Europe earn more than poor Americans. The numbers, based on surveys conducted over the past 35 years, offer some of the most detailed

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen.

"A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said. (Video) Reid noted that most cattlemen pay their taxes, pay their fees, and follow

Joan Eisenstodt didn´t have a stopwatch when she went to see an ear, nose and throat specialist recently, but she is certain the physician was not in the exam room with her for more than three or four minutes. "He looked up my nose, said it was inflamed, told me to see the nurse for a prescription and was gone," said the 66-year-old Washington, D.C., consultant, who was suffering from an acute sinus infection. When she started protesting the doctor´s choice of medication, "He just cut me off totally," she said. "I´ve never been in and out from a visit faster." These days,

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by

Thirty-eight Republican lawmakers, including such unlikely bedfellows as John McCain of Arizona and Ted Cruz of Texas, have joined to support a lawsuit challenging the legality of the Affordable Care Act and accusing the president of repeatedly ignoring the law he signed for political reasons. The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief
