Lois Lerner pleated the “5th” again today in front of Congress, who is trying to figure out just WHO was using the IRS to go after Tea Party organizations.
Congress could grant her immunity, but even if they did grant her immunity for her testimony— so what? As we see from this bold-faced lie from the NSA chief, nothing would happen to her. She could lie, about how innocent she was, and lie about Obama’s involvement, and lie, lie, and lie some more.
Would Congress hold her for perjury? Would Eric Holder? No, they would probably all thank her for her time.
Nobody Wonders…why the powerful continue to be untouchable–but she is clearly not afraid, Obama has his back…I mean HER back.
But if you or I committed perjury?
NO hole would be big enough.

He is also a professor of Intelligence Studies with the Department of National Security, and Intelligence and Space Studies. He teaches at the Master level in American Military University.
Not exactly a conspiracy nut.
I have always believed that Obama was not vetted out, but Nobody Knows why? Since it seems that Giuliani, and the Clintons, and who the heck else knew, that Obama was not qualified to be President? WHY did none of these people think enough of the country to tell us? To expose him as the fraud he is?
Even Hillary, who would have benefitted the most? Why?
To me, the fact that a lot of people knew and yet, said nothing, is just as troubling as the fact that Obama is in office and destroying the country.
THAT is the real conspiracy.

This week we have our “What button?” new Secretary of State, Swifty Boat Captain, John Kerry, stating that the USSR was no threat to any and the cold war was over and then making fun of Sarah Palin AND Mitt Romney for claiming that yes, Russia is to be watched.
And they were RIGHT. Russia has invaded the Ukraine.
And so, still in shock at the fact that he was wrong, and how it’s just not in his cultural upbringing to even think that Russia would even DARE act unlike a fellow civilized member of Harvard, John Kerry, said this:
“It would be very difficult for me to understand how Russia would reconcile its position on Libya, its position on Syria, its warnings against intervention in another country and then not respect the sovereignty of Ukraine and the will of the people there,” Kerry said.
“We’re hoping that Russia will not see this as a sort of continuation of the Cold War, we don’t see it that way,” Kerry said Wednesday on “Andrea Mitchell Reports” on MSNBC. “We do not believe this should be an East-West, Russia-United States — this is not ‘Rocky IV.’”
“It’s an incredible act of aggression…It is a really a stunning willful choice by President Putin to invade to another country.
“You just don’t in the 21st century behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country on completely trumped-up pretext isolate Russia with respect to this invasion. “
And neither did the alligator, who for years, has had no fear from any other creature on the planet. Why be swallowed by a mere snake? Impossible! To think, that silly crane, and that turtle warned him…really. Don’t they know NOBODY would dare to attack him?
So, who wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week?
Why, John Kerry of course! An alligator, had a real disadvantaged. He can’t read.
Evidently, John Kerry doesn’t either, but he could take out a few history books…you know. Just to make us all feel a bit safer…he is after all…
Harry Reid, on the floor of the Senate WARNED the American people about liars—-you know, all the people dying of cancer who just lost their insurance, and are upset that they are going to die. Harry is mad that those people have the nerve to speak up.
Also, Harry had to throw in some dirt on those unpatriotic guys known as the Koch brothers who are buying America.
It’s not just the GOP anymore, nowadays the American enemies are it’s people, and if they happen to have money…oh…god forbid.
Well gee…maybe the Koch brothers are trying to buy American BACK from George Soros, Planned Parenthood, the Ford Foundation, the teachers unions, the AFL-CIO, G.E., the mob, Hollywood, China, Saudi Arabia, the Muslim Brotherhood…let’s see…did I miss any Obama donators? Yep. Sorry. You and I both have things to do…like wave American flags.
Harry doesn’t have to lie about HIS health care though…his employer pays for it.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D.-Nev.), whose salary is $193,400 a year, said he has purchased a health care plan through the D.C. Obamacare exchange and that he is accepting the federal subsidy that can run up up to $11,378 per year for a member of Congress to purchase a plan on that exchange.
“I’m just like 150 million other people in America,” Reid said. “My employer helps me pay for my health care.”
So, if Harry gets his wish and we go to a one-party system, and we get our healthcare from the government, does that mean that our government will then be our employer? And if we make $193,00 will we get subsidies just like Harry?
Nobody Cares about my opinion on the matter of the mobster Harry Reid, but in my opinion, the closest that Harry will ever get to a brainstorm is a light drizzle. I say we all write the Koch brothers and ask them where we can send our donations in order to get rid of Harry Reid.
I’m sure some people in Las Vegas have some great ideas on the subject.
Nobody Knows if Obama and John Boehner solved how to pass amnesty this morning at the White House, but what Alex Sink, a democrat running to represent Florida, showed in her almost blatantly funny statement, is that most democrats are just worried about WHO is going to landscape their mansions. It’s a concern.
“We need to bring these people out of the shadows so that they’re paying into social security, paying into Medicare, they’re paying federal income taxes,” she said. “So they’re not security issues, but they have to earn their way, but we need immigration reform.”
Nobody Knows, but nobody can guess that if the immigrants stopped coming, Americans would be doing those jobs…and wages would, just by free market demand, have to go up. And that’s what the big companies don’t want now do they?
Nobody Knows, but– we are finding out, Obamacare demands that all calories of food must now be listed by restaurants. So, is Obama going to excuse all the pizza delivery places from spending the money and listing the calories on their pizza boxes until AFTER the 2014 elections to save his butt? No doubt, he will. And nobody knows if listing calories is going to keep anybody from getting extra cheese.
Nobody Knows that the Supreme Court has ruled that the police can gather DNA from anyone whenever they want. And nobody is pretty certain they already have most everyone’s. Anyone born in America has their blood taken right after birth, illegal or not.
Nobody Knows why Chuck Hagel, our Secretary of Defense, is taking our military back to pre-WWII levels when he says we are in more danger now than we have ever been.
Oh, that makes sense.
Hagel stressed that such changes entail risk. He said—
“We are entering an era where American dominance on the seas, in the skies and in space can no longer be taken for granted.”
So therefore, we can’t win, so we should just retreat. Nobody Knows why the democrats hate the military, but they do. Bill Clinton did such a fine job of downsizing our military it took George W. Bush almost 9 months to build it back up enough to attack Iraq. Going to the U.N. was just a stall. (That’s my opinion)
Nobody Knows where Hagel is going to ‘store’ all our unused military hardware, sell it to China?
Nobody Knows that I actually heard reported today on the radio that “hate groups’ have gone down in the last year. ‘Hate groups” being those white conservative radicals who were all in a hussy about Obama trying to take their guns away. Right. You cannot not hate anyone who tries to deprive you of your rights.
Nobody Knows when anyone who hates anything, will be arrested. (First they came for the Jews…and I said nothing….)
Nobody Knows how Eric Holder can tell the state attorney generals to just ignore the laws in their state and go ahead and sanction gay marriage and rights, and then have the audacity to say our founders had gays in mind when they wrote our founding documents.
Nobody Knows how John McCain got to be a Senator from Arizona. Somebody enlightened me.
Nobody Knows why some people are night people and some people are day people, a subject that I can’t seem to find an answer to. SCN?
And Nobody Knows why the heck we are talking about “gay rights” all day long and into the sunset when America has MUCH bigger problems…like a Marxist President who is completely gone off the rails and plans to destroy the country beyond all recognition. Tell me, what’s more important than that?
Nobody knows how Congress became so corrupted that nobody will impeach him.
And Nobody knows that unlike Jane Fonda, I noticed butterflies, polar bears, kittens, pregnant women, baby elephants and all the beauty all around this planet when I was about…four.
It’s being reported that 20 very young bank executives all over the world, have committed suicide. One guy “jumped’ off the 33rd floor (raising eyebrows about the 33 masons) another put six nails into his brain with a nail gun.
(Let’s call the Netherlands)
Bloomberg is reporting this morning that former Federal Reserve economist Mike Dueker was found dead in an apparent suicide near Tacoma, Washington. Normally HousingWire wouldn’t cover deaths in the industry, but what’s strange is that Dueker is the third prominent banker found dead since Sunday.
On Sunday, William Broeksmit, 58, former senior manager for Deutsche Bank, was found hanging in his home, also an apparent suicide.
On Tuesday, Gabriel Magee, 39, vice president at JPMorgan Chase & Co’s (JPM) London headquarters, apparently jumped to his death from a building in the Canary Wharf area.
Evidently most of these guys were happy campers, making a nice living…so at least it’s nice to know that they are not Michelle Obama’s list as “knuckleheads.” because no doubt they all had signed up for Obamacare.
I guess this would be funny, if we didn’t know that China has not bought any of our bonds for two years, our dollar is coming out of thin air, and the whole world is dropping the petrol dollar. Not to mention—everybody who knows something is telling you to hide your gold in your back yard.
And on that happy note, I’ll leave you with a happy video to wonder…what it all means.
Will the nobody squirrel escape? Hint: He did not work for JP Morgan.
Elihu Root was the Secretary of War (1899-1903) under McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt and Secretary of State(1905-1909) under Roosevelt. After that he became a Senator from New York (1909-15) and received the Nobel Peace Prize. At the Constitutional Convention of the State of New York, on August 30, 1915, he had a lot to say about the evils of the “invisible government” that he said had run New York for many years. He said that the government was not elected but was responsible only to the party boss in control of the state. He wanted to change the system that he viewed as corrupt.
Here’s a few excerpts from his speech:
What is the government of this state? What has it been doing during the forty years of my acquaintance with it? The government of the constitution? Oh, no: not half the time or halfway. For I don’t remember how many years, Mr. Conkling was the supreme ruler in the state: the governor did not count, the legislature did not count, comptroller’s and secretaries of state and whatnot did not count. It was what Mr. Conkling said, and in a great outburst of public rage he was pulled down.
Then Mr. Platt ruled the state: for nigh twenty years.
The party leader is elected by no one, accountable to no one, bound by no oath of office, removable by no one. I don’t criticize the men of the invisible government. How can I? I have known them all, and among them have been some of my dearest friends. But it is all wrong. It is all wrong that a government not authorized by the people should be continued superior to the government that is authorized by the people.
How it is accomplished? Mr. Chairmen it is done by patronage. The elected officer or the appointed officer, who is to be held responsible for the administration of his office desired to get men into the different positions of his office who will do the work in a way that is creditable to him and his administration. Whether it be a president appointing a judge, or a governor appointing a superintendent of public works, whatever it may be.
How is it about the boss? He has to urge the appointment of men whose appointment will consolidate his power and preserve the organization. The invisible government proceeds to build up and maintain it power by a reversal of the fundamental principle of good government, which is that men should be selected to perform the duties of the office,
The true one, looks upon appointment to office with a view to the service that can be given to the public. The other the false one, looks upon appointment to office with a view to what can be gotten out of it. A great number of men are put on the payrolls as a matter of patronage not of service, but of party patronage.
(Can you say Ambassador to Norway?)
Both parties are alike, all parties are alike. The system extends thorough all.
I have been told forty times since this Convention met that you cannot change it. We can try, can’t we? I deny that we cannot change it. I repel that cynical assumption which is born of the lethargy that comes from poisoned air during all these years. I assert that this perversion of democracy, this robbing democracy of its virility can be changed.
We can take this one step toward, not robbing the people of their part in government but toward robbing an irresponsible autocracy of its indefensible and unjust and undemocratic control of government, and return it to the people to be exercised by the men of their choice and their control. We cannot change it in a moment but we can do our share.
When I read it, I thought of the Bushes, the Clinton’s, Reid and Boehner…because as I have said, it’s the leaders of both houses that control everything. And the best man at stacking the deck against the common man with his invisible government is our current ‘President’, Barack Obama.
And here, way back in 1915, Elihu Root, wanted to do something to break the monopoly of the ‘invisible government.”
Nobody Thinks Mr. Root was right, and yet…things remain the same these 99 years later.
Right before this interview today on George Stephanopoulos This Week, they showed “President” Obama talking about Kevin’s Spacey’s very popular Netflix program: House of Cards. (I could NOT find Obama’s take anywhere on Youtube) Obama laughed as he usually does when caught in a lie, and remarked that House of Cards was simply a fantasy, but he sure wished that he was like Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey’s character) because he could get a lot more done.
If you haven’t seen House of Cards, it’s like the West Wing, but more realistic.
Obama’s comment reminded me of a comment that President George W. Bush’s Quote made while HE was President.
“I told all four that there are going to be some times where we don’t agree with each other, but that’s OK. If this were a dictatorship, it would be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I’m the dictator,” Bush joked.—CNN.com, December 18, 2000
Every conservative that watches Frank Underwood on House of Cards, thinks he is watching every democratic politician that every graced the halls of power. George Stephanopoulos and Obama have gone out their way in interviews to reiterate how NOTHING like the program ever happens in real life Washington D.C..
The problem I have is deciding if Obama is more like Frank Underwood or Tony Soprano. Remember when he said when they bring a knife to the fight, he will bring a gun?
Before you say, “He was just kidding.”…ask yourself: Should any politician even talk that way?
Kevin says in the beginning of this interview, most people think that the show is 99 percent correct. Many of us do believe that our politicians, murder, cheat, steal, and do just about everything under the sun, and to think this, is not farfetched at all. It’s not a fantasy. Just turn on your TV set.
What’s even more impossible to believe, is that so many people still don’t think our government would resort to such measures.
But…we know, by the polls, that both Congress and the President are at all-time lows…so I’d say we’re getting there. And that’s the point: THEY know it too.
(What to do about it? )
We see it right before our eyes. Corruption is at the highest levels of our government and nobody ever goes to jail. The Clintons alone had at least 60 people who worked for them over the years, all mysteriously die—whether by accident, or heart attacks. What are the odds?
When Hillary Clinton, as First Lady, ran into Vince Foster’s office to shred documents, after he ‘killed’ himself, and before the police could get there—well—- it didn’t exactly make her look innocent. What was she looking for?
When Obama lies almost every day, even at the expense of people losing jobs and medical care, can we expect him NOT to be capable of murder?
Many Americans think so, and that’s why the series is so popular. Kevin is brilliant in House of Cards, but notice, at the end of this interview he makes the same point about politicians that Steve Spielberg made in Lincoln—which is: Presidents must commit a few crimes to get the end result they want. In LBJ’s case it was the passage of three civil rights bills. Therefore the ends justify the means. It’s the one solid mantra of any ‘progressive.’ They live by that, and it excuses every single crime they make. That’s why Sibelius was never held responsible, or the IRS, never held responsible, or Hillary Clinton, never held responsible….
(Hell, Bill Clinton knowingly gave blood filled with AIDS to Canada while governor of Arkansas, and he was never held responsible.)
Kevin Spacey is a liberal last time I checked, and the new series mentions the Tea Party, the elections coming up…and some themes of liberals, like the “rapes’ of the military, and big businesses controlling the White House. But, Kevin’s character is a democratic rascal…so House of Cards is going to be a big hit with the majority of the American people, just like 24 was.
But— I remind myself, the very popular 24 helped American get used to the idea of electing the first black President by portraying him as one of the most honest, politicians to ever grace the White House–the actor himself even admitted this:
How did that turn out? Obama was NOT the honest President from 24, in fact, he was the exact opposite.
So…Are we being manipulated again, with the very lovable character of Frank Underwood?
Wasn’t Tony Soprano lovable? Are you seeing the pattern?
Is the House of Cards just another social propaganda mechanism to get the masses of conservatives left in America, hooked on a pop culture’s series, only to find out, that Hollywood puts out the baited hook, you get addicted, then all of a sudden you are accepting the fact that Presidents should be able to kill, cheat, lie and destroy, for the benefit of –the American people?
A ruthless man, is to be admired?
That thought has been a giant dichotomy to me. Why would Steven Spielberg make such a strong stand and support for Israel, and then come out and support Obama.
Or—is it always just about the money?
Do they try to write the truth in-between the lines, but are as duplicitous to the politicians as the politicians are to us?
Nobody Knows, but I wish I did. And that’s the theme I am coming up with. Many democrats believe the American people are not capable of running their own lives and only the ELITES know what is good for us, and I’ve even heard some democrats say that they were GLAD that Obama lied to the people, otherwise Obamacare would have never been passed.
And if that’s true, then I think it’s about time we blew Obama’s flimsy and corrupt House of Cards back to Hollywood.
Frank Underwood, would, I HOPE— be pleased.
—How they can turn characters like Noah from the Bible, into a liberal propaganda movie about too many people being on the earth. I suppose that will be the excuse given from God. God WAS a liberal who decided to kill all those pesky people with a flood.
___How, because he rules by his pen, we cannot call factually call him a fascist dictator.
—How they can keep claiming that America is in recovery when a third of its people are out of work.
—-How Obama can give raises to contractors with the stroke of his pen.
—-How the stock market can keep making billions for the rich, while the rest of the country’s economy slowly dies.
—How a Republican can be elected Mayor of San Diago, despite the unions and Obama’s democratic machine working overtime in a district where 63 percent of the votes went to Obama, and the press ignore it, and what this means for Marco Rubio
___How the Obama can give the most expensive state dinner…with the finest and most expensive food and decor, and then lecture us on the rich and poor, and expect everyone to think HE deserves to waste our money on himself.
—How Obama can delay his horrible Obama mandates on businesses until after all elections, just because everyone is finding out how much he lied–and let the little people suffer, even though he claims to be against ‘the rich’. If he is against the rich, stop giving them breaks.
—How Obama can punish anyone in buseinsses who fires someone because of the expense of Obamcare, thereby depriving everyone of free speech for fear of a tax penalty.
—How almost all of Congress remains silent, on anything he does, including giving himself more money each and every year, simply because he CAN due to the color of his skin.
—and WHY my ancestors, who were the ONLY founders who had no slaves ON PRINCIPLE, were not given a monument in Washington D.C.
Wow…I’m in a bad mood..
I get so much email, sometimes I just can’t find the time to open them all, but today, I opened one sent by Freedom Outpost–it was about the movie Captain Phillips and the Somali Pirates starring Tom Hanks.
It seems, it took the Navy Seals 36 hours to rescue Captain Phillips, but the movie leaves out why.
Below is a letter written by a patriot, Dr. Jack Wheeler, who describes what REALLY happened…and I’m guessing after reading about Jacks’ fate, that his family wished he had never wrote it. And that’s why I’m passing it on…because it’s just another blog post hidden in the depths of nowhere, and I think every American has a right to know the clear and present danger from the man in the White House.
From Freedom Outpost:
We sat down and watched the movie and wondered why Navy Seals 36 hours before they killed those that held Captain Phillips. The movie expressed some insight into the actions, but it did not reveal the true lack of action and the act of pure cowardice by none other than President Barack Obama himself!
Dr. Wheeler was a man of honor: a West Point graduate, a Vietnam veteran, and the man who was the driving force behind financing the construction of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. He fought long and hard for the dignity and honor of the fallen Vietnam War soldiers. He served three presidents as an aide and advisor — Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, for whom he was a special assistant to the Secretary of the Air Force and a military consultant.
Jack Wheeler was a graduate student at the Harvard Business School when he was recruited to be an advisor to the president regarding military tactics. He was a man of integrity and served on the General Staff at the Pentagon.
Shortly after writing this article, he was mysteriously murdered sometime between Dec. 28th and 31st in 2010, and his body was dumped in a dumpster in Newark, Delaware. Wheeler had homes in Washington, D.C. and New Castle, Del.(See – http://patriotsbillboard.org/this-obama-lie-will-make-your-eyes-bleed/)
All of us need to raise our glasses the highest to the Navy SEALs, who popped those three Somali pirates. And I’m sure you want to hear the real story of what happened especially because there is a revoltingly opportunistic and cowardly side to it.
Why, for example, did it take SEAL Team Six (aka DEVGRU, Navy Special Warfare Development Group) over 36 hours to get to the scene?
Because President Obama refused to authorize the SEAL deployment for those 36 hours, during which the OSC – the on scene commander, Cmdr. Frank Castellano of the USS Bainbridge – repeatedly requested them. Cmdr. Castellano is a very, very mature and experienced commanding officer and is rock solid in his decisions.
Once the SEALs arrived – parachuting from a C-17 into the ocean near the ship – Obama then imposed Rules of Engagement (ROE) specifying the SEALs could not do anything unless the life of the hostage, Captain Richard Phillips, was in “imminent” danger.
Thus, when Capt. Phillips attempted to escape by jumping off the lifeboat into the ocean, the SEAL snipers had all four pirates (one later surrendered) sighted in and could have taken them out then and there – but they could not fire due to Obama’s ROE restrictions.
When the SEALs approached the lifeboat in a RIB (rigid-hull inflatable boat) carrying supplies for Capt. Phillips and the pirates, the pirates fired upon them. Not only was no fire returned due to Obama’s ROE, but as the pirates were shooting at the RIB, SEAL snipers on the Bainbridge had them all dialed in. Again, no triggers were pulled due to the ROE.
Two specific rescue plans were developed by Cmdr. Castellano and the SEAL teams. Obama personally refused to authorize them.
After the second refusal and days of dithering, Cmdr. Castellano decided he had the Operational Area and OSC authority to “solely determine risk to hostage” and did not require any further approval by the president. He took unilateral action on Sunday, April 12, 2009.
Four hours later, the White House is informed that three pirates are dead and Capt. Phillips has been rescued unharmed. Then a White House press release was immediately issued, giving credit to the president for his “daring and decisive” behavior that resulted in such success.
Obama has absolutely no military knowledge or experience whatsoever. He demanded decisional control over the entire hostage drama to the last detail. All actions required his personal approval. He dithered like a coward while the world laughed at our warships flummoxed by four illiterate teenagers with worn-out AKs in a lifeboat.
Only when the Navy Commander decided to ignore his Pantywaist-in-Chief and take action and responsibility himself, were the incredible skills of the SEALs put into play.
That Obama could cynically and opportunistically claim that his “bold” “calm” “tough” leadership was responsible should remind everyone that not a single action, not a single word of this man can be trusted. He is bereft of honesty and moral character. He is a complete Zero.
The HFR raises a glass full of pride and gratitude to Navy Commander Frank Castellano, the Navy SEALs for their incredible competence, and our military. Let’s hold a Tea Party in their honor.
What a low-life, lying, racist, Muslim, Marxist, Manchurian coward we have running our government. It is a disgrace to the office. Anybody reading to this point that voted for this worthless son of a bitch step forward to show America how altogether stupid you really are!!
After all, going after conservatives have left them in really low spirits—because there are just so MANY conservatives to watch…nobody told them. Not to mention, this year, they will have to work overtime to keep an eye on those Tea Party terrorists, god forbid any of them get into the public eye during these upcoming elections.
The President is very proud of his IRS tea party killer team, he said this:
“There were some bone-headed decisions,” the president told Bill O’Reilly in a pre-Super Bowl interview Sunday, but he said the agency’s actions did not involve “even a smidgen of corruption.”
Citing the need to boost employee morale, the Internal Revenue Service’s new commissioner said Monday that he will pay out millions of dollars in bonuses to agency employees, reversing a decision his predecessor made to save money amid the sequester budget cuts and other belt-tightening last year
“This is money best spent on our existing employees,” he said in an email to agency employees. “The performance award payouts are in recognition of that great work done in very trying circumstances. I firmly believe that this investment in our employees will directly benefit taxpayers and the tax system.”
Agency officials said they will pay $43.4 million to employees represented by labor unions and $19.1 million to other employees, for a total of $62.5 million in bonuses for 2013.
With this news, I’m sure we can all expect the upcoming 2014 videos to be directed by Steven Spielberg or George Lucas….after all, if they can spend billions promoting Healthcare, the IRS should get at least equal billing.
I’ll be watching for Beyoncé to promote the IRS on TV. Maybe she’ll throw some money around while dancing with Michelle…both smashing Tea Party china.
Hey…call me. I have some ideas. Anything is better than having to watch THIS:
The city of Atlanta was hit with a major ice storm yesterday, hundreds of people were stranded on highways and schools for more than 23 hours… and it’s no surprise that the Democratic mayor–did nothing.
The result was gridlock on freeways that are jammed even on normal days. Countless vehicles were stranded and many of them abandoned. Officials said 239 children spent Tuesday night aboard school buses; thousands of others stayed overnight in their schools.
One woman’s 12-mile commute home took 16 hours. Another woman gave birth while stuck in traffic; police arrived just in time to help. Drivers who gave up trying to get home took shelter at fire stations, churches and grocery stores.
CNN did a good job drilling Mayor Reed on WHY he did nothing, but notice how good he is at passing the blame: It was the teacher’s fault. This morning–they were blaming the weatherman–because George Bush wasn’t around. Yes, it’s got to be rough when your President is a democrat and you are the mayor of a big city, and you can’t blame the President when you &$% up and your own citizens are mad at you.
But…guess what? Remember when the Mayor of New Orleans blamed President George W. Bush for Katrina?
Ray Nagin rose to American political fame in swift, albeit uncensored, fashion — as the New Orleans mayor who publicly trashed and pleaded with President George W. Bush to save his city in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. “Flying over in Air Force One doesn’t do it justice,” Nagin said during a radio interview a few days after the storm hit on Aug. 29, 2005.
Then the photo came out, of George flying over New Orleans and not even landing. Why, he should have sent in the 45th battalion! They never got over it, and to this day, President George W. Bush is blamed for the misery suffered after Katrina. But…it wasn’t his fault. He was actually following the law. By our Constitution, if you have a disaster in your city, it’s the Mayor and the Governor of that state that are responsible to handle it. The Federal government can only come in when ASKED. And nobody asked the President for DAYS.
Nobody Thinks that was because Nagin really messed up big time…the democrats manipulated it so that the President would be blamed, instead of the mayor.
When does a democrat NOT blame a republican for something that they do?
Wal-Mart came to the rescue when Mayor Nagin was sitting around bitching about everything. But that’s democrats. Nagin was such a crook. He is just now being persecuted for what he did during the time of Katrina. (READ ABOUT THAT HERE)
President George W. Bush did right by not landing…he really was thinking of the people. The whole apparatus of Air Force One would have been a headache at the time when people didn’t need one. Nevertheless…that didn’t stop Obama from landing In New Jersey and getting his photo-op with Chris Christie while he made all kinds of promises those suffering people after Hurricane Sandy—-
Which of course, were all lies.
The CNN reporter is right: It was the mayor’s fault. He should have salted those roads. Atlanta is not doing too good financially, and if Kasim is anything like Nagin, who knows what corruption he is in? As for the democratic governor, Nathan Deal?
Around the time the traffic jam started, Deal and Reed were at an award ceremony recognizing the mayor as the “2014 Georgian of the Year.” Deal spokesman Brian Robinson said the governor left before 1:30 p.m. and was in constant contact with emergency officials.
Nevertheless: It’s already been suggested that the small communities cannot handle things at all. All power should just be put in the hands of the President. I actually heard that on CNN. They can’t blame George Bush, so they are going to do the next best thing: Take all power away from the states and put that power in the hands of Obama.
Nobody Wins when democrats run the country.
So whatever happened to Nagin? He’s going to court:
The indictment states Nagin accepted more than $160,000 in bribes and truckloads of free granite for his family business in exchange for promoting the interests of businessman Frank Fradella — who secured millions of dollars in city contract work after the hurricane. The hurricane and its aftermath killed roughly 1,800 people and cost an estimated $108 billion.
Nagin moved to Dallas after leaving office and founded CRN Initiatives LLC, which specializes in publishing, public speaking and emergency preparedness.
You cannot make this stuff up.
Cory Remsburg is a true American hero. Ten tours in Afghanistan and then— brain damage by a terrorist. Minutes before Obama started talking about him at the end of his State of the Union speech tonight, the first lady was smiling and gently touching him proudly, as if he were a very dear friend of hers. It was the end of Obama’s speech, and Obama choose, to have the whole Congress turn, and applaud this poor man, who had suffered such a terribly injury.
And then Obama saluted him. Every military man in the United States probably felt just like I did at the moment….and they probably took out their anger on some video games, no doubt.
I just got sick to my stomach.
Michelle was smiling, and holding Cory arm—caressing the hero who stood next to her all night. I could feel the metaphor coming deep in my gut:
My fellow Americans, men and women like Cory remind us that America has never come easy. Our freedom, our democracy, has never been easy. Sometimes we stumble; we make mistakes; we get frustrated or discouraged. But for more than two hundred years, we have put those things aside and placed our collective shoulder to the wheel of progress – to create and build and expand the possibilities of individual achievement; to free other nations from tyranny and fear; to promote justice, and fairness, and equality under the law, so that the words set to paper by our founders are made real for every citizen.
Obama used the brain damaged Cory as a metaphor for America: We are in a coma, we’ve made mistakes, while our country is being destroyed before our eyes, we can actually come out of the coma and live to be in Obama’s utopia.
In other words, to Obama, America is brain-damaged. He knows America is in the worst shape it has ever been…but he refuses to take the blame. After what Obama has done to the military, it was hard to watch.
As the chamber was emptying, it was clear. After the show was over, the poor soldier was noticeably flushed in his glorious moment and turned to the first Lady for the recognition that she had gotten from her through-out the ordeal. After all, she was so tender, so warm, so affectionate, I’m sure the poor kid thought she really thought the world of him.
But she—just turned away. Completely ignored him. It was clear, she was finished with her job…and she wanted out of there. She couldn’t get away from him quick enough. (The camera got off that scene..quick.)
Look how Obama set this up:
I first met Cory Remsburg, a proud Army Ranger, at Omaha Beach on the 65th anniversary of D-Day. Along with some of his fellow Rangers, he walked me through the program – a strong, impressive young man, with an easy manner, sharp as a tack. We joked around, and took pictures, and I told him to stay in touch.
(Notice Obama wants you to know he went to Omaha)
He later said he went to visit him in the hospital. If he did, it was to be able to say he did in this speech.
Nobody Knows, but Nobody can guess that Obama’s only interest in this poor soldier was how he could use him as a prop in the ending of his speech. To pull the lie that Obama…IS a patriotic man.
The good news is: Obama’s speech was, as usual, full of lies, and the country is so bad, all he could do was muster up his talent as a speaker, and give a Rah, Rah Rah talk. And he knows it. So he starts out saying WE THE CITIZENS are the hero’s. As IF flattering us is going to make us feel any better. We got the same old liberal causes:
COLLEGE: The themes are the old and tried ones we’ve been hearing from him for years. He promised everyone needs to go to college….and then introduces a woman who has a degree, but can’t get a job…so therefore the government should give her more unemployment.
So, go to college, and get unemployment. And because all the blue collar jobs are gone, going to college is just a waste of time…so therefore Obama wants “skills” training.
INFRASTUCTURE: Yeah, we still need that.
ASIA PACIFIC TREATY: Will bring jobs. Just like NAFTA.
HUB: He’s going to build hubs. For technology. For NSA.MORE. Six at least. Can’t wait.
ENERGY: Obama is the reason we have gas, and oil— “And even as we’ve increased energy production, we’ve partnered with businesses, builders, and local communities to reduce the energy we consume.” (TAX, TAX, TAX)
CLIMATE CHANGE: “But the debate is settled. Climate change is a fact.”
JOBS: Obama is going to somehow tell companies and colleges to take taxpayers money and create jobs. Obama will master all money, tell the companies and schools how to do everything. and he will do this with more money. He will force CEO to hire people.
WOMEN: Just because women HAVE to drop out of the workforce and raise kids—that does not mean she can be paid less than the man who is working for that year and making connections, and continuing his job..no she needs to be paid equal even though she is not working. Woman are not paid the same as a man. It’s Hillary’s platform because the whole democratic side went nuts with applause. (They got the memo) That’s why GM has a woman CEO…it’s just so unfair. Tell me, is Hillary getting fair pay?
ECONOMY: “Give America a raise.” Obama’s answer to fixing the economy. Just give everybody money. And let people set up a MYIRA retirement fund: because that will give the government more money to take when it all collapse.
IRAN: Diplomacy works, and Hitler was a good guy.
Nothing on the NSA. Not much on gun violence: he’s taking care of that by declaring that half the population is mental, therefore cannot own a gun.
And My personal favorite…Obama wants to close Guantanamo— Because of the Constitution.
–because we counter terrorism not just through intelligence and military action, but by remaining true to our Constitutional ideals, and setting an example for the rest of the world.
Fancy that: Obama loves the Constitution when it applies to terrorists that want to murder us. They deserve our Constitution…us..not so much.
And just so you know—more—
That’s why I believe this can be a breakthrough year for America. After five years of grit and determined effort, the United States is better-positioned for the 21st century than any other nation on Earth. (Right…)
As President, I’m committed to making Washington work better, and rebuilding the trust of the people who sent us here.(Sure)
Most importantly, Obama let everyone knows that HE is the King, so it doesn’t even matter anymore if our state of the union is pretty bad…he’s got a pretty good life:
But America does not stand still — and neither will I. So wherever and whenever I can take steps without legislation to expand opportunity for more American families, that’s what I’m going to do.”
“If he believes, and the Justice department believes, he has the authority to make progress, to strengthen the middle class, give people opportunity in this country, he will take it,” Podesta said.
That’s the plan. Just dictate.
So, it was clear tonight, Obama knows the country is doing really badly, but he knows nobody will impeach him, so he has three more years to have a grand time traveling the planet.
Unless of course, that brain-dead nation called America wakes up.
Nobody Gets Email:
Here’s something I was alerted to in an email that is not being reported about much. It seems, when Japan’s Fukushima exploded, our Navy went to the rescue, even though, we must assume with the technology of today, both countries knew the men and women on board the USS Ronald Reagan would be sacrificing their lives:
From the Washington Post;
At least 70 have been stricken with some form of radiation sickness, and of those, “at least half . . . are suffering from some form of cancer,” their lawyer, Paul Garner, told The Post Saturday.
“We’re seeing leukemia, testicular cancer and unremitting gynecological bleeding requiring transfusions and other intervention,” said Garner, who is representing 51 crew members suing the Tokyo Electric Power Co., which operates the Fukushima Daiichi energy plant.
Even as the Reagan was steaming toward the disaster, power-company officials knew the cloud of steam they were releasing — in order to relieve pressure in the crippled plant — was toxic, the lawsuit argues, a claim that has also been made by the Japanese government.
“And then we couldn’t go anywhere. Japan didn’t want us in port, Korea didn’t want us, Guam turned us away. We floated in the water for two and a half months,” until Thailand took them in, she said.
“I was standing on the flight deck, and we felt this warm gust of air, and, suddenly, it was snowing,” Cooper recalled of the day in March 2011 when she and scores of crewmates watched a sudden storm blow toward them from the tsunami-torn coast of Fukushima, Japan.
So…was this Japan’s way of getting back at us for Hiroshima? Or— was this Obama’s suggestion of a cruel payback to conservatives and the military he so blatantly dislikes?
And yet today, we are talking about a mall shooting. The mall shooting might be used in Obama’s speech next week, but I can guarantee you, this incident will NEVER be mentioned by the White House.
Our men and women of the military deserve better.
