After nominating an anti-Israel pro-terrorist Defense Secretary, Obama will nominate current White House Chief of Staff Jack Lew as the new Treasury Secretary (can it be any more obvious that Obama’s nominations are political favors?).
In response, the top Republican in the Senate Budget Committee says: “Jack Lew must never be Secretary of Treasury… His testimony before the Senate Budget Committee less than two years ago was so outrageous and false that it alone disqualifies… To ‘look the American people in the eye’ and make such a statement remains the most direct and important false assertion during my entire time in Washington.”
Obama-supporter Al Gore sells his cable TV company to Al Jazeera because it shares his “point of view”
The pro-Obama “pro-environment” Al Gore has shown his true colors: When Glenn Beck’s right-wing news outlet The Blaze tried to buy Gore’s left-wing news outlet Current TV, “Current TV refused The Blaze’s offer because “the legacy of who the network goes to is important to us and we are sensitive to networks not aligned with our point of view.” After Glenn Beck’s offer was rejected, Current TV was sold to Al Jazeera for $500 million.
Al Jazeera hates America and Israel, and spouts radical Islamic propaganda— but Democrat Obama-supporter Al Gore believes that it’s Al Jazeera (not Glenn Beck) that shares his “point of view.” The icing on the cake of this deal: it turns out that Al Jazeera is funded by Middle East oil profits, making Al Gore the world’s biggest hypocrite.
Obama orders a pay raise for VP Joe Biden, Congress, and federal employees– DURING fiscal cliff negotiations
As the country teetered on the edge of the fiscal cliff (caused by excess government spending), Obama issued an executive order to raise the salaries of VP Joe Biden (to $231,900/year), Congress (to $174,900/year), and federal employees in general (~0.5% pay raise). And what will these government pay raises cost American taxpayers? $11 billion.
23 states petitioned the White House to secede from the Union after Obama’s re-election. Obama has encouraged his racist supporters, viciously belittled Mitt Romney during the campaign season, and laughed at a “joke” about wanting Rush Limbaugh dead.
But all of that apparently isn’t enough for the self-proclaimed “bi-partisan” and “unifying” Barack Obama. In a valiant effort to become THE most divisive U.S. President in history (beyond any shadow of a doubt), Obama threatened Republican Speaker of the House of Representatives John Boehner during the fiscal cliff negotiations that if Republicans didn’t reach an agreement with Democrats, Obama “would use his inaugural address and his State of the Union speech to tell the country the Republicans were at fault.” In case we had any question about Obama’s lack of class, it’s been reported that after Republican Boehner made a major concession and asked for a compromise from Obama in return, Obama responded: “You get nothing. I get that for free.”
A few days ago, America was heartbroken by the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre– and Obama– for the first time– displayed real emotion, which was appreciated by Americans on both sides of the political aisle. However, the national discussion has been contorted by devious political hacks. The loudest response has been from Americans– both left and right– who have chosen to take ‘the easy way out’ of addressing the real problem.
The truth is that our society needs good people to have guns. It shouldn’t be optional– it should be mandatory for trained, armed “good guys” to protect public places. What would have happened if the Clackamas mall shooter hadn’t been confronted by an armed shopper? How many more Sandy Hook Elementary students would have been killed if first responders had arrived on scene only a minute later than they did? We find gun control in the most oppressive dictatorships on Earth– Iran, Syria, North Korea, etc.– regimes that over-power the people with weaponry. There was gun control in Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia, which rounded up dissidents and ‘undesirables’ before killing them. Guns are illegal in Mexico– the result is that the public lives at the mercy of trained, armed “bad guys” who can rely on the black market for guns. As American patriot George Mason stated: “To disarm the people [is] the best and most effectual way to enslave them.”
Fostering training and gun ownership for “good guys” isn’t enough– we also need tighter gun control laws to prevent gun ownership by irresponsible people or “bad guys.” The Sandy Hook shooter’s mother, Nancy Lanza, took her son to shooting ranges despite knowing that he was disturbed— she was so irresponsible that she should not have been permitted to own a gun. Apparently, U.S. gun control laws are even inadequate to prevent mentally ill people from buying guns legally themselves– a mentally ill person legally bought his guns and shot up an Aurora movie theater this year. The enforcement of U.S. gun control laws is also inadequate. Having a black market for guns is bad enough– what’s worse is a stupid decision by the Obama Administration to purposefully sell thousands of semi-automatic firearms to criminals with links to Mexican drug cartels.
The Obama Administration has failed on gun policy. Beside the Fast and Furious scandal, it turns out that the Obama Administration “quietly let federal funding for several key school security programs lapse in the name of budget savings… two Justice Department programs that had provided more than $200 million to schools for training, security equipment and police resources over the last decade weren’t renewed in 2011 and 2012… a separate program that provided $800 million to put police officers inside the schools was ended a few years earlier… [and the Obama Administration] eliminated the Readiness and Emergency Management for Schools (REMS) funding, which for years provided between $20 million and $30 million in annual grants to help schools create emergency and crisis preparation and prevention plans for tragedies.” Obama wasn’t willing to stop government spending for pet projects and perks for his political supporters– instead, he made the disgraceful decision to cut school security programs.
Meanwhile, a Democrat member of Congress– a political hack from New York named Jerrold Nadler– has expressed his callous opinion that Obama should “exploit” the Sandy Hook tragedy in order to legislate against the Second Amendment of the Constitution. Previously, Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder announced that he wants to “brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way.” These aren’t solutions– they’re detestable plans to use a tragedy to advance a political agenda.
Update: Sadly, the Obama Administration is continuing to use the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy to advance its political agenda: A mass “Obama for America” e-mail sent to Obama supporters by his chief campaign advisor David Axelrod “urges supporters to watch President Obama’s moving address to the community of Newtown” WHILE soliciting donations for Obama during his second term as President. As another blogger pointed out, the mass e-mail contained “two buttons – two opportunities to donate to the Obama campaign. Not to the Red Cross, or to a memorial fund for the children and adults killed in Newtown.”
After we learned that the Obama Administration lied to the American people about the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya and initiated a cover-up to help Obama win re-election, we’ve been informed that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton won’t be testifying about the incident since she’s vaguely ‘ill.’
Not only is Obama ready and willing to take the U.S. over the fiscal cliff— he actually WANTS America to be brought to ruin! The wishy-washy Speaker of the House, Republican John Boehner, went so far as to offer to raise taxes on higher-income Americans in order to reach a deal– but Obama rejected this “major concession” from the Republicans!
It turns out that the Democrats themselves proposed “that the House should vote to raise taxes on household incomes of more than $1 million” in May 2012! But now, after the Republicans agreed to compromise in order to avert catastrophe, the Democrats “are urging their party’s lawmakers to vote against” their own proposal.
Obama wrongfully took credit for killing Osama bin Laden and lied to the American people about his “gutsy call” and the bin Laden raid. Now, it’s been revealed that a senior Defense Department official in the Obama Administration leaked classified information to the filmmakers of “Zero Dark Thirty” (a film about the hunt for Osama bin Laden) in an effort to ensure Obama’s re-election.
Obama is lucky that Congress hasn’t passed legislation designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a “terrorist” organization (YET).
Pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 2339A, it’s a felony (punishable by a fine and/or imprisonment) to provide material support or resources to “terrorists.” By every measure of reality, the Muslim Brotherhood qualifies as a “terrorist” organization— founded by Hasan al-Banna (a devout supporter of the Nazis), supporting jihadist terrorism against Western nations, facilitating the growth of Al Qaeda, opposing the killing of Osama bin Laden, serving as the “parent organization” of Hamas, and encouraging its members to engage in terrorist acts and form their own terrorist organizations. Even the FBI Chief testified that “elements of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamist group whose ideology has inspired terrorists such as Osama bin Laden, are in the United States and have supported terrorism here and overseas.” Yet, Congress hasn’t managed to pass legislation officially designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a “terrorist organization.”
As a result, Obama is able to get away with sending “more than 20 F-16 fighter jets, as part of a $1 billion foreign aid package” to the Muslim Brotherhood-led Egyptian government— despite the fact that “Pharoah” Morsi has seized absolute power, sparking violence in Cairo and threatening the national security of both the U.S. and Israel. It’s incredible that Obama continues to embrace Morsi, despite the fact that Morsi openly prays for the destruction of the U.S. and Israel.
Despite a record number of needy families, Obama wastes $100 million on a fake inauguration ceremony.
The Salvation Army has reported a record number of families that need financial assistance this year. Meanwhile, Obama insensitively plans to waste $100 million of taxpayer money on a FAKE public “inauguration ceremony”— while his real inauguration ceremony takes place privately indoors.
