Obama´s Goat
American Spectator, by Bruce Chapman

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/10/2013 6:12:51 AM

The National Park System has a budget of $2.6 billion, much of it raised by concession and attendance fees. Even if it were entirely taxpayer-funded it would represent only .00068 of every federal dollar in our $3.8 trillion budget. Nonetheless, hardball-playing White House strategists have made it the most conspicuous instrument of pain inflicted by the federal shutdown. The Republican House has tried to fund the park system during the struggle over Obamacare funding, but without success. Even park funding offers by states have been rejected by the feds. Almost every day brings fresh examples of unnecessary annoyances and hardships visited

The press is certainly doing its job of covering (for) the president and acting cheerleading squad. The current (p)resident of the Spite House is "punishing his enemies", aka the American people by his Pettiness. One word. Karma, and we all know karma is the b word.

The little punk in the White House may think he´s a wise guy but there will be repercussions from his ridiculous behavior. He will be scorned and disrespected for the rest of his miserable life. People are not making the connection between forced closures and the republicans, it will be the democrats who feel the wrath in 2014.

Well, the President has certainly ruined the Park Service "brand" and their carefully cultivated, friendly, helpful "Smokey the Bear" image by turning Park Service Police/Rangers into "the grinch that stole Christmas," and a two bit Gestapo, there to inflict needless pain on the citizens whose parks and monuments they supposedly "guard" and take care of.

Our Fearless Leader is doing everything he can to ruin the "American" brand for everyone on this planet. His muslim teachings in Indonesia claimed that America was the devil dog and should be destroyed. For his entire life, he hung out with people that had the same delusional fantasy about America. He, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and the rest of the anti-American democrat are doing their best to hurt us. We need to understand their end game and defeat them.

Anything that people find calming, relaxing is what gets shut down.

In my little town, municipal government had a budget cut/temper tantrum about 5 years ago. The first thing they cut was the recycling center. The woman who ran it worked 6 hours on Saturday. Now she works 35 hours in the municipal building, greeting people as they walk in the door. Fast forward to now, the town has at least 100 recycling containers in all the public areas. They have to pay somebody to empty each and every one of them.

Government is like the color red - it´s the same anywhere you go.

Obama can find a couple hundred million lying around to bail Detroits crooked unions out but not a dime for parks or burying poor dead soldiers.

But Ted Cruz is the most hated man in America. go figure.

Several years ago, while visiting my local library, I picked up a leaflet. In it I was told that unless I voted for a LARGE tax increase, if my husband had a heart attack, we were on our own. If our house caught fire, on our own. No more library, schools closed, etc. Right then I realized I was being threatened. This is more of the same. There is a word the muslims like to use, submission, and that appears to be the order of the day from our.....rulers.

While it is wrong for Obama to try to manipulate things by closing parks, etc., anybody who complains about it will be playing into his hands, saying "uncle." Ignore him and his childish tantrum. Show him how insignificant his strategems are.

You have to see, although petty, why the parks were closed. It´s where American families take their vacations and plan and spend their disposable incomes. Some being open air and require no people except a security guard to watch for vandals. It is the quickest, simplist way to inflict the most pain immediately on America.
I say hold out and don´t take that vacation yet. Let this hate that Obama spews out come around on him. Hold out this is going to change.

So if you´re down on the Mall for the protest this weekend, should you see one of the Jellystone Park Rangers, stop in front of them, give them a straight arm salute, and shout "Seig heil!" Because if they´re going to act like the Gestapo, they should be treated like the Gestapo.

The motivation is has become blatant; it’s not money, since it takes staff to keep people out of Parks facilities. It’s politics.

this we all know - if your vacation has been ruined by the shutdown, call your Republican congress critter. And that´s clearly according to plan...

#15, I agree. The Park Rangers are "just following orders" and they look like brownshirts. Where are the park rangers that say "oh, you can´t look," wink, wink, and then turn their backs to let folks peek at Rushmore, the ocean or the sequoias? What ever happened to "lives, fortunes and sacred honor?" The WWII vets showed us, swarm the barrycades and go on in.

This is the same extortion used by the education establishment when they need more money, and they threaten to cut the school nurse, the library, the arts....

I just want to see the Democrats vote on an actual budget not some continuing resolution from 5 years ago.

GOP has prime opportunity to ensure they vote all 18 appropriation bills and send them all to the Senate.
Then, keep reciting.. the funding is there, if only the Democrats would vote in the Senate to open up.....

We won´t keep enabling the Democrats from making the budget decisions by offering continuing resolution after continuing resolution. We´ve played that game, and it´s not a solution to the spending problems.

Most folk just do not care. Unless you are going to one of the Parks, it doesn´t effect you directly. Unless it hits home, you will only complain and not DO anything. That is the GOP way. Voting, writing Congressmen, posting on blogs, etc have their place but if it doesn´t work, and it isn´t, then Civil disobedience is needed.

I think that one of the reasons that zippy singled out the parks goes back to the 1995 shutdown when one of the most publicized sob stories was about not being able to go on a sleigh ride at Rocky Mountain National Park.

BTW, I´m going to be civilly disobedient this Sunday at the million vet march. I hope that some of you will be there too.

Smokey Bear is the mascot for the US Forest Service - which falls under the Agriculture Department. USFS and NPS have very little in common except trees and mountains and streams. NPS is part of the Interior Department. The Forest Service was the creation of Gifford Pinchot - a close friend of Teddy Roosevelt who believed that for such lands to survive that people should be able to use them in a reasonable fashion, hence: logging on Forest Service lands, hunting, etc. John Muir - the spiritual founder of NPS believed the lands should remain untouched forever, sacrosanct. Hence, no hunting, no guns, etc on NPS lands.

Interesting thought, #9. But the strategy isn´t simply to make the people angry -- it´s to make all of us angry at the GOP, and the so-called mainstream media are spinning the coverage to support that strategy.

So the solution isn´t to remain quiescent; it´s to be angry at the Spite House in a vocal way, to counter the Painstream Media´s propaganda.

Psssst: Patriotic Americans are still getting through, still making it into the park. Just don´t try to enter at main trail entrances. Obama is so dumb, he actually thinks blocking a trail with a barrycade will stop people, as if there are no wide open woods. It´s that umbrella mentality he exhibited long ago working again.

The Park is definitely on a pain tirade/mission: we watched a USPS patrol car going after a motorist the other day with blues on. The pursued motorist gave them the slip, left the patrol car hurtling in the wrong direction with no quarry. It was like Smokey and the Bandit. Wonder how long it took the officer to figure it out? lol. Which way did he go, which way did he go?

It´s pretty hard for me to figure out how many park rangers you´d need to keep determined people out of the Grand Canyon, Zion, Yellowstone, etc. They´re really, really big - wish I was a little younger and had the vacation time. Now would be a great time to see some of our natural wonders without all the crowds. Although I think it would be best done as a group so if you did run across a rogue park ranger in the wild, you´d stand a better of chance of an okay encounter.

Got a call from the Republican Natl Committee at 8:30am today almost begging for me to donate. This is the second one this week and both with soft spoken men who aren´t arguing with what you say but more or less begging for a donation. Once again I told them that when the Republicans start to represent conservatism and the people who have supported them they will not see a red cent from me.

If nothing else brings to the American consciousness the power that our government wields over us RIGHT NOW, let alone if we give them more, then we deserve to be relegated to the ashbin of history.

Right now, this minute, the federal government and especially the Executive Branch, has enormous power to simply override the Constitution because no one, to date, has stood in their way.

I just watched a TV show about a Russian couple in Florida who pulled off a large real estate fraud. Con artists, liars and just plain thieves and criminals. Their con game and pyramid scheme eventually collapsed and lots of people were cheated out of their hard earned savings and property etc.

All of a sudden I´m reminded of Obama and what a total fake, fraud, phony and con man he is. Everything about him is just a con game. He´s totally incompetent and a total liar. There´s nothing real about him. His whole life is a con game and a fake. All facade, tinsel and glitter, but zero substance or experience.

Where are his college records? What are his SAT scores? What was his GPA? Why is all of his past life buried? Anybody ever see him at Columbia?

Ever read any of his papers or articles published at the Harvard Law Review?

Why did he and Michelle both surrender their law licenses?

Ever talk to any of his girlfriends? Friends period?

Clint Eastwood was right, Obama is the biggest hoax in history.

The President of the United States Of America is a con artist, a liar and a criminal.

We´ll be lucky to survive him.

He´s a smooth talker with teleprompters, but incoherent without them.

Easter 2014: A celebration of hope

Over 2 billion people are celebrating Easter today, April 20, as the calendars of Western and Eastern churches coincide this year, and these billions of faithful people are celebrating HOPE. The Easter message begins with the hopeful news that death has been overcome by life, that hatred has been overcome by love, and that sorrow has been overcome by joy. The elements of the story involve women arriving at a garden tomb and finding it empty, but even better, meeting the risen Lord, the embodiment of life and love. Their lives are changed forever and so are the lives of many, many

Chocolatiers love a holiday, be it Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or Easter. The French version of the Easter Bunny is Easter Bells (les cloches de Pâques)—which allegedly fly to Rome for a few days before the holiday to be blessed by the Pope before returning with chocolate eggs for the kids. But you don’t have to hunt very far to find French chocolate and pastry shop windows full of Easter eggs all trying to out-cute, out-class, or simply out-design one another. Good-looking pastries and other sweets are a modestly priced pleasure in France. But like fashion designers, French patissiers and chocolatiers

Say Goodbye to Taiwan

WHAT ARE the implications for Taiwan of China’s continued rise? Not today. Not next year. No, the real dilemma Taiwan will confront looms in the decades ahead, when China, whose continued economic growth seems likely although not a sure thing, is far more powerful than it is today. Contemporary China does not possess significant military power; its military forces are inferior, and not by a small margin, to those of the United States. Beijing would be making a huge mistake to pick a fight with the American military nowadays. China, in other words, is constrained by the present global balance

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

WASHINGTON — Daniel Swalm was researching his family when he came across a disturbing episode in immigration history. That discovery would lead to a move in the U.S. Senate to apologize for action the nation took more than a century ago. Swalm discovered that under an obscure 1907 law, his grandmother Elsie, born and raised in Minnesota, was stripped of her U.S. citizenship after marrying an immigrant from Sweden. Swalm had never heard of the Expatriation Act that required a U.S.-born woman who married a foreigner to "take the nationality of her husband." Swalm, who lives in Minneapolis, found out about the law

Russian Regular Forces To Invade
"NewRussia" Between May 4 And 9?

This “Open Letter to the Friends of Ukraine,” by a guest columnist who writes under the pen name of Irina Gokieli, dated April 19, offers the author’s pessimistic scenario of forthcoming events in what Vladimir Putin now calls “NewRussia.” “NewRussia” encompasses southeastern Ukraine and parts of Moldova. She predicts an invasion by regular Russian troops near the end of the first week of May under the pretext of restoring order, although she does not rule out, as an alternative, an alliance of Putin with certain Ukrainian politicians and oligarchs. Notably the author makes a persuasive case that the long-term consequences

Liberals now love Barry Goldwater,

Kennedy, the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show — get ready to add another: The presidential campaign of Barry Goldwater, the most influential loser in modern American politics. Goldwater was nicknamed “Mr. Conservative,” but now even liberals adore him. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. penned an essay a few years back effusive in its praise for Goldwater, whom he described as an exemplar of civility, decency, and integrity. Goldwater was “neither mean-spirited nor racist,” wrote Kennedy; he challenged

A three-year study of how network news refers to “Easter” reveals that by a margin of 500-56, reports that mention the word or “Easter season” choose a secular path linking it to candy Peeps, frilly clothes and cocktails over Christ’s resurrection. “Instead of celebrating Christ´s rising from the dead, the networks have made it about ´egg-cellent Easter fashions,´ frilly Easter bonnets and pink martinis,” said a report from the conservative Media Research Center provided to Secrets on Good Friday.

Holder’s undermining of the
law deserving of contempt
Washington Times, by Robert Charles    Original Article

Attorney General Eric H. Holder was reminded during a recent congressional hearing that he has been held in “contempt of Congress” — for nonproduction of subpoenaed documents. He interrupted with a personal rebuke of his questioner. Later, he suggested that questioning of his leadership, nonresponsiveness to congressional oversight, and referring to the contempt vote was evidence of racism. The accusation was made a second time, perhaps as a political stratagem, by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Let’s stop there — and stop the deflection, too. No attorney general of the United States is entitled, for any reason, to escape scrutiny of Congress,

Have you ever been blamed for a murder? Speak out against jihad terror, and you probably will be. It has happened to me three times (so far): 3. Reza Aslan blames me for murder of Muslim woman in California. Last Thursday in El Cajon, California, an Iraqi Muslim named Kassim Alhimidi was found guilty of murdering his wife, Shaima Alawadi, after she had told him that she wanted a divorce. Before Alhimidi was arrested, this murder was widely reported as an “Islamophobic hate crime”: a note was found by Alawadi’s body that read, “Go back to your country, you terrorist.” Leftists and Islamic

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal
