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.
You have to wonder…how in the world can Chris Christie complain about not getting his Sandy relief? Didn’t he come out, and desert the Republicans right before the election? Didn’t he act like Obama had come to SAVE New Jersey? Didn’t he act as if God himself had landed his chariot on the soil of New Jersey, and assure Chris Christie that he was President, and he came and DID garantee, that there would be no more red tape, Chris Christie was going to get ALL the help he needed. So let it be written…so let it be done.
Where was the ‘help’ Obama promised?
Why isn’t he lashing out at ‘President’ Obama? Why isn’t he mentioning that Obama just passed higher taxes on everyone, and that INCLUDES the people who lost their homes in Sandy?
The few last remaining men and women working for the people, have a problem with signing the Sandy funds, and I can’t blame them.
Republican Representative Darrell Issa had this to say about the spending initiatives in the Hurricane Sandy relief bill:
“Your two senators packed this with pork. They had the opportunity to have a $27 to $30 billion dollar legit relief packages, packed it with pork, then dared us not to vote for it.” This include a $150 million in funding for Alaskan fisheries. The bill would also have reportedly increased spending food insurance, and in $336 million in Amtrak expenses and $2 million in taxpayer funds to repair a room on one of the Smithsonian buildings in Washington D.C.. The publication also reports that the Super Storm Sandy relief legislation also includes $8 million to purchase new vehicles for federal agencies. A total of $4 million for repairs to the Kennedy Space Center were also added to the disaster relief bill.
Really? If the Congress really cared about the American people, they would have immediately passed a bill for Sandy relief, packed with nothing in it, but relief for Sandy victims. Untill there is a bill passed that says they can never load bills with pork, this stuff will happened again and again. Tell me WHY they need money for the Kennedy Space Center when it’s been closed down?
And we all know, they love the fact that they can fill bills with pork, it’s the easiest way for them to get their hands on the money.
So…the DEMOCRATS have released the horrible cry on every single channel:
“THEY ARE MEAN AND VICIOUS AND HURTING THE CHILDREN, and thos poor people! OMG..THE REPUBLICANS!”
And two Republicans, Christ Christie and Peter King are outraged that John Boehner didn’t give them money.
And why should he? One of the reasons Obama got elected was because the second favorite son of the Republican Party deserted them in their hour of need, and yes, it IS politics. Despite what Christie said, he knew exactly what he was doing, and it is all about politics.
John Boehner and Obama both managed to leave Washington without doing much of anything besides helping to destroy America more. Obama gpt money for his rum dealers, his algae subsidies, his Hollywood buddies so he can make more propaganda films, and then he hopped on Air Force One and went back to Hawaii without even signing the bill that everyone “slaved” over. Spending now, $7 million for his vacation.
Boehner went home without calling a vote on Sandy relief.
BUT….the stock market…continues to soar and Nobody Knows why.
Are you ready for this?
In 90 days.
According to its engineers, this will be the tallest skyscraper in the world by the end of March of 2013. Its name is Sky City, and its 2,749 feet (838 meters) distributed in 220 floors will grow in just 90 days in Changsha city, by the Xiangjiang river. They also claim it will be able to sustain earthquakes of a 9.0 magnitude and be resistant to fire for “up to three hours,” as well as be extremely energy efficient thanks to thermal insulation, four-panned windows and different air conditioning techniques that were already used in their previous constructions.
Let’s see…the World Trade Center was started in April of 2006, and it’s still to this date in 2012, not completely finished. And it’s not near as tall as China’s Sky City is going to be—its 1,776 feet tall as compared to 2,749 feet. The tallest building now, in Dubai, is 2,719 feet.
So, what is America going to do about this? Mayor Bloomberg has come up with something he thinks America can be proud of, and it’s only going to take a year…starting in 2014. The biggest Ferris Wheel in the world. Yes, he’s proud.
Nobody Notes: The Plan for this Ferris Wheel have been in place for quite some time.
A plan to build a Ferris wheel that would exceed the height of the Singapore Flyer, currently the tallest in the world, as well as the London Eye and the planned ‘High Roller’ wheel on the Las Vegas Strip, was announced by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg.
(This was planned BEFORE Sandy ).
The 625 foot New York Wheel, which would be the world’s tallest when completed, is part of a comprehensive plan that includes a new retail outlet complex and a 200-room hotel, all to be built on Staten Island’s North Shore, steps from the Staten Island Ferry in St. George.
The recently unveiled projects are expected to transform Staten Island’s waterfront by spurring economic growth, boosting tourism and creating more than1,200 construction jobs and 1,100 permanent jobs.
The projects are part of a city wide “sustainable blueprint” designed to transform the City’s waterfront with new parks, new industrial activities and new housing, “to promote water-borne transportation, recreation, maritime activity and natural habitats,” according to the Mayor’s office.
Okay. Uh. Is there anything LEFT on Staten Island?
Well, gee. In that case Hurricane Sandy just did a wonderful job clearing out valuable ocean front property to get ready for the Mayor’s new Theme park with the tallest Ferris Wheel in the world! Where nobody will be allowed to eat meat on Mondays, or drink a soda, but you will be able to freeze your butt off on top of the Ferris wheel, should you decide to go up in it.
Nobody Knows…If this Hurricane could have been helped out with the weather manipulators, but, that Hurricane is going to make a lot of rich union developers, richer. What are the odds? LOL! Getting all those property owners off the island will be pretty easy now.
Nobody Notes: I tend to lean towards the conspiracies if at all possible. Not only is it more fun, I always suspect when it comes to making the elites richer, they will pull out all things possible, and that includes…when you see a hurricane pushing your way…for goodness sakes, seed that sucker. The ends ALWAYS justify the means.
We have an election to win and a New Park to build!
China builds the tallest building in 90 days. The U.S. plans to build a Ferris Wheel, in 12 months…give or take a few years.
Yeah, we got this.
It’s amazing to see how happy Chris Matthews is about hurricane Sandy..and who knew? Hurricane Sandy came just in time to help Obama get elected! Thank the Lord. Michael Moore thanks Global Warming and Mother Nature. Nothing like a good crisis to push a politician over the top I say. It’s a beautiful thing.
So, it’s official. There will be an earthquake near the next election for Obama’s third term. In 2016 they plan to test some of that wonderful new technology and get that stress off the New Madrid fault line. After all, it’s due. Better it happen in the midwest and Kentucky, because after all, that area voted for Mitt Romney.
Last time the New Madrid fault had a good blow was back when Mark Twain was floating down the Mississippi. In fact that quake was so strong, the Mississippi flowed backward causing us all a good laugh for decades every time we read about it….and it’s the reason Mark Twain got the Nobel Peace Prize.
By 2016, all disasters will have names. Many of the democrats are already deciding on one for the biggest earthquake in history. So far..the name RUSH has top billing.
That should help Obama get reelected for a third term! And by then, more than 60 percent of the white people will vote for him, because only 40 percent did this time. A good earthquake at JUST the right moment will come. You can be sure of it.
Mother Nature is going to help out with that statistic of low whites voting. It’s so good to see what she can do for the right person.
So bring it on Mother Nature! We need more storms! More fires! More disasters! It’s a good thing, Chris Mathews says so.
Good to know. What a country! God Bless America, and Chris Matthews for caring so much.
(Nobody Makes This stuff up.)
Nobody Is Mad
This morning I watched the “great and benevolent” Al Sharpton talking to Neil Cavuto on FOX. Neil made the case that millions will not be able to vote because most of them are not even getting food, or gas from the great Democrat politicians. in New York. Charlie Rangel thought that was no big deal, after all, they were going to put up tents and those people could very well go vote in the tents.
Wow. Nobody Remembers the howling and the screaming that Jesse Jackson and Charlie Rangel did during the 2000 Florida recount! Why, all those poor people who just didn’t get to the poles…it was a travesty that the Republicans kept them from voting.
That 85 degree weather was just too much to bear.
You want to talk about flip-flop. Charlie doesn’t WANT those people voting because after the horrific response to this hurricane, with Obama’s great war on gas, and the lack of help from the government, I would not doubt if some of those New Yorker’s would become overnight Republicans.
The Obama backer Mayor Bloomberg had to cancel his great marathon because he probably would have been lynched on the town square. He has…how many homes? !6? And yet THIS Obama supporter acted like the rich elite oligarch that everyone thinks is the badge of a Republican. Screw the little guy, I need to make money. Most of the sponsors, wisely, pulled out, and the rich liberals runners had to go home.
Anyway, I’m mad, and I don’t even live there. At least in Katrina, Bush sent in the Marines. And Wal-Mart was allowed in to feed and clothe people. You can bet your Charlie Rangel bootie that they won’t be let near the place…the Union thugs would be out with bats.
But this is New York.
May this be a lesson to them all.
If I were them,…in the words of Obama…I’d want revenge.
Everyone is screaming about the traitorous actions of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie–rolling out the red carpet for the President and pretty much proclaiming him a God. While everyone is afraid that Christie is handing vast amounts of votes to Obama…Nobody finds it too funny.
Has everyone forgotten that politicians…all politicians, use disasters for reelections? It’s the most golden opportunity that they can hope for. Obama could have cared less about New Jersey, he wanted to set his presidential Commander-in-Chief podium down in the middle of the disaster (by the way, some poor sop has to drag that stand and a generator everywhere and set it up) and get Christie’s endorsement.
Christie needed something from Obama, and for that–Obama got his endorsement. It’s that simple. Christie is up for election next year.
Christie is a funny fish…like the republican Mayor Bloomberg, he supports many issues that conservatives abhor…global warming, cap-and-trade, Muslim judges,…and yet, people like Ann Coulter were giddy over the man. Conservatives loved his stance against the teachers unions, but the union leaders themselves had already decided that they didn’t want to honor those big pensions promised. After all, their benefits won’t be touched. Besides, those big pensions would take money away from the Democratic politicians…money sorely needed to keep them in power.
While many believe that Christie’s actions of kissing the ring of the Potus just to save lives…you have to admit that his sorrow is real. No doubt there was some of that in his head…but if you think Christie didn’t also do this for himself…think again.
He was the leading speaker at the Republican Convention, and nothing about his speech, until the last few sentences was about Mitt Romney. Nothing. Most everyone was going…”Huh?”
Christie is less a Rhino, then a future Donkey.
Did that photo-op help any of the people in New Jersey?
Nope. Nobody Thinks the voters will just not bother to show up. Why in the world should they? They have much bigger concerns.
Nobody in the Government is coming to their recue..and they are about to find out just how broken everything really is.
On an ending note: Notice that it was the rich people’s houses that were totaled on the Jersey Shore, and was this also about Obama getting the taxpayers to rebuilt those houses? Was Christie lobbying a broke Federal Government for the rich? Nobody Knows.
And if that’s true, will YOU hear about it?
As anyone knows who owns a house, millions of people right now on the East Coast are calling their insurance agents who are telling them: “Uh…flood damage is not covered.”
BUT…if Obama gets reelected…you can be sure he will spout off that he ‘saved’ the car industry, because by March, all the thousands of cars that were damaged in this storm will have to be replaced. I know, that’s what happened to us. We had an old Ford Cougar that we would have driven until its last putter, but hail the size of baseballs totaled it. We had no other choice but to buy a car. We could have skipped the montly car payments and use that money to buy new gutters for the house.
So it goes. We will be climbing up those latters a few more years.
I was thinking that this seemed a fitting ending to Obama’s Presidency, because since he’s been in office, we have had enough natural disasters, in tornado’s, floods, oil spills, forest fires..etc…that in the future, we will associate all these disasters with the Obama Presidency. I know I will.
God speed all of those that are already struggling in this economy, and then got slammed with Hurricane Sandy.
Let’s hope, they make it to the voting boooths.
Swim if you have to…
And watch this video….it’s almost perfect.
(Thanks to Tom Beebe)
This week is a contest of vandals—The East Coast VS the West Coast!
Let’s take the West coast first: After the Giants won the World Series, it seems the fans in San Francisco got so excited, they decided to do the usual, stuff—go outside and destroy whatever happened to be around…and HEY! This is a time honored tradition in San Fran…
Vandalism included bonfires set along Mission Street and around AT&T Park, and beer bottles thrown at police. Some fans hopped on top of Muni buses and cars along Market Street; at least one car had been tipped on its side. Windows of stores were broken, and Dumpsters were torched.
Two years ago, fans acted similarly when the Giants also won the World Series in 2010. That year, a patrol car was damaged, at least three private vehicles had their windows smashed, a window of a Giants’ dugout store was broken, and one couch was destroyed after being lit on fire and tossed out a window. There were also reports of graffiti on store windows in the Mission district.
Ah…those silly liberals…you’d think that they could just stick to Occupying Wall Street.
BUT….will the East Coast show those West Coast Obama fans how to REALLY vandalize? The whole Eastern seaboard is being torn apart by Hurricane Sandy, and we all remember the wonderful looting scenes we saw in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina—Who knew that Televisions could jump into rafts pushed by people?
Something tells me, we are about to find out if Hurricane Sandy gives Katrina some competition. Here’s some Tweets getting ready for the looting party of the year:
“Bout to do some looting when this hurricane finally hits….gonna get a new laptop and tv…this hurricane might be the best thing to happen.”
“If this hurricane gets real bad I’m looting stores ! i always wanted to do that “I’m gonna go looting once this hurricane hits Utica”
“Has Hurricane Sandy made landfall yet? My bitch ass is ready to go looting!”
“helllll yeah I’m gonna go looting after the storm hits.”
“Who wants to go looting with me when Sandy hits?! I need some new shit!
So, who is going to win the ‘looting and vandal’ rewards of 2012? East Coast? West Coast?
Nobody Thinks: Obama.
“Anything they need, we will be there,” Obama said. “And we are going to cut through red tape. We are not going to get bogged down with a lot of rules. We want to make sure that we are anticipating and leaning forward.” In Virginia, one of the most competitive states in the race, election officials eased absentee voting requirements for those affected by the storm.
Too bad he didn’t say this during Benghazi.
The World Series of Looting has just begun.
Hurricane Sandy Could Have Profound Effect on Voting
—–Said the headline of Newsmax:
Remember when Rahm Emanuel said “Never let a crisis go to waste!” ? Well, the White House has to be truly excited by Hurricane Sandy. I can hear it already:
So many people were disenfranchised by not being able to reach the polls due to the Hurricane Sandy, therefore, certain states need to do a recount.
By executive order..of course. Obama CARES about your vote.
This might take a month or two months, depending. Obama could stay in the office way past his overdue date.
The democrats HAVE to win by fraud. They have been working so hard to get everyone to vote early, and NOT show up at the poles, because those votes, if illegal, can be easily registered for Obama.
“The state board of elections is already planning for extended hours in advance for absentee voting, and it’s now a priority, moved up to the same level as hospitals and police stations to have power restored,” said Gov. Bob McDonnell, a top Romney ally.
Yes, extended hours. That’s how an election here in Missouri was stolen in 2000. John Ashcroft was up against Mel Carnahan for the Senate, in a very tight rice, and Missouri was a pivatol state for Bill Clinton. Two weeks before the election, his small plane went down, and his wife took his place on the ballot. Bill Clinton practically RAN to the funeral to get the “pity” vote for poor dead Mel…it was quite a show. That very day the mantral “Don’t let the fire go out.” was repeated over and over to get his wife elected in his place.
On election day, the voting booths downtown St. Louis were allowed to stay open way past midnight for some lame excuse that they lost some votes…somewhere.
Of course, the democrasts bused in hundreds of blacks voters…and John Ashcroft lost. There was outrage here in Missouri over the “fraud” and abuse, and the stolen election–but due to Carnahan’s death, George W. Bush just made him Ashcroft the Attorney General.
How propitious the act of nature was: Mel was behind in the poles, his plan crash delivered the state to the democrats.
Nobody Thinks that it’s Virginia that Obama needs, NOT Ohio. Virginia is going to be hit hard. I have friends that live in the area and they have told me there is not a day that seems to go by that Michelle or Obama are not campaigning there. Romney has taken the lead in Virginia.
I also think it would be safe to assume that if all this actually comes about..and Obama declared the winner in a state he would have lost without the hurricane..due to extended hours, or recounts…or by so much destruction being done that the elections are called off for sometime…
You can be sure they have now MASTERED weather manipulation. It’s a fact that they can maniuplate hurricanes…but…would they do it to steal an election? After all…you can’t cry “foul” when mother nature is to blame now, can you? And just think of how Presidential Obama can look “saving” his people.
Nobody Wonders: But I would like to quote Bill Clintons’ favorite President, FDR: Nothing in politics is a coincidence.
