Russia Invades Ukraine. Liberals Owe Sarah Palin Another Apology.

August 28, 2014

palin-newsweekReal American Leaders have the gift to assess a situation before it even occurs and tell you what the outcome will be, if certain elements fall into place.

For example…

Back on October 22, 2008. foreignpolicy.com reported the following…

Speaking Tuesday at a rally in a Reno, Nevada, Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin had a little fun with her counterpart on the Democratic ticket, thanking Joe Biden for warning Barack Obama’s supporters to “gird your loins” for an international crisis if the Illinois senator wins.

Palin helpfully offered four scenarios for such a crisis, one of which was this strange one:

After the Russian Army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama’s reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence, the kind of response that would only encourage Russia’s Putin to invade Ukraine next.

In February of this year, Breitbart.com reported that

For those comments, she was mocked by the high-brow Foreign Policy magazine and its editor Blake Hounshell, who now is one of the editors of Politico magazine. 

In light of recent events in Ukraine and concerns that Russia is getting its troops ready to cross the border into the neighboring nation, nobody seems to be laughing at or dismissing those comments now.

Hounshell wrote then that Palin’s comments were “strange” and “this is an extremely far-fetched scenario.”

“And given how Russia has been able to unsettle Ukraine’s pro-Western government without firing a shot, I don’t see why violence would be necessary to bring Kiev to heel,” Hounshell dismissively wrote. 

Palin made her remarks on the stump after Obama’s running mate Joe Biden warned Obama supporters to “gird  your loins” if Obama is elected because international leaders may test or try to take advantage of him.

The New York Times reported yesterday that

Supported by NATO satellite imagery showing Russian forces on the move in eastern Ukraine, its president accused Russia on Thursday of an invasion to aid the separatists, and his national security council ordered mandatory conscription to help counter what he called an “extremely difficult” threat.

The assertions by the president, Petro O. Poroshenko, came two days after he had met with President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia in attempts to find a way to end the nearly six-month-old crisis roiling Ukraine. The conflict has escalated into the worst East-West confrontation since the Cold War, and the developments on the ground in the rebellious east along the Russian border suggested it would worsen.

Mr. Poroshenko scrapped a trip to Turkey to deal with the crisis and called an emergency meeting of the Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council. He dismissed Kremlin claims that any Russian soldiers in Ukraine were volunteers who had sacrificed their vacations to help the heavily pro-Russian east suffering oppression from the Kiev central government.

“Columns of heavy artillery, huge loads of arms and regular Russian servicemen came to the territory of Ukraine from Russia through the uncontrolled border area,” Mr. Poroshenko said. Mercenaries, along with regular servicemen, were trying to overrun positions held by the Ukrainian military, he said, according to a statement on his official website.

“The situation is certainly extremely difficult and nobody is going to simplify it,” Mr. Poroshenko said.

Anticipating the possibility of direct combat between Ukrainian and Russian troops, the council later announced it had reimposed mandatory military service, suspended last year.

Mr. Poroshenko spoke as NATO released satellite images to corroborate accusations that Russian forces were actively involved in Ukraine fighting. NATO also said that more than 1,000 Russian soldiers had joined the separatists battling the Ukrainian military.

Back in February of this year, Sarah Palin wrote on her Facebook Page that

Yes, I could see this one from Alaska.

Miss Sarah, if we had known President Pantywaist as we do now, I believe that any American with common sense could have predicted it.

From the moment, Obama announced the appointment of his Democratic Primary Opponent, Hillary Rodham Clinton, to be his Secretary of State, Americans felt a prophetic shiver go up their spine.

The Former First Lady had about as much experience in foreign affairs as Michelle Obama has in pushing away from a buffet table.

Obama and Clinton decided to call their Foreign Policy Initiative “Smart Power

Unfortunately, for our nation’s safety, it has turned out to be anything but “smart” or “powerful”.

Obama’s failure at Foreign Policy has led to the entire Middle East being consumed by the Bonfire of The Vanities, known as “Arab Spring” in which Moderate Muslims dictators were replaced by Radical Muslim Dictators.

Additionally, during this Arab Spring, on the anniversary of the worst terrorist attack on American soil in history, 4 brave American,s including our ambassador, were slaughtered at the US Embassy Compound in Benghazi, Libya.

No effort to save them that night was made by the Obama administration.

And, the “Leader of the Free World”, blamed a Youtube Video for “stirring up” “peaceful Muslims”.

Since then, Obama has made threats and has drawn red lines in the desert sand in an attempt to show the world that he is a powerful leader.

Unfortunately for our safety as nation, Obama’s Fantasyland view of the world, which is not unlike the old Coca Cola Advertisement where everyone had a Coke and a smile, set him up to be a disastrous failure at Foreign Policy.

A failure which finds our enemies in Iran still working on a nuclear bomb and Russian Leader Vladimir Putin well into the process of annexing surrounding countries and rebuilding the old Soviet Union, which was dissolved thanks to the efforts of a real leader and American President, Ronald Reagan.

The popular defense, currently being thrown against the wall to see if it sticks by Liberals on behalf of their fallen messiah’s failed Foreign Policy, is to attack those who are critical of it, by claiming that we are rooting for the Russian Leader.

In fact, the opposite is true.

We are Americans. We love our country. We cherish our freedom.

As we see our own freedom slipping away through the actions of a failed president and his willing minions, we are sympathetic to Ukraine and the other former Soviet Bloc nations, who are presently under the threat of having their freedom taken from them.

We are critical of this president and his failed Foreign Policy because it is costing these nations their freedom, just as his Domestic Policy is in the process of costing us our own.

As I wrote in the title, All those Liberal Pundits who made fun of Sarah Palin’s prediction of Russia invading the Ukraine, when she made it back in 2008, owe her a big apology.

However, if I was the Former Governor, I would not hold my breath waiting on them.

They won’t apologize to Sarah Palin.

Liberals will always tell you whom they fear.

Valerie Jarrett: The Power Behind The Throne (A KJ Unauthorized Biography)

August 22, 2014

Valerie Jarrett 8222014I just worry a lot. I’m a worrier. Michelle and Barack are really dear to me. I mean, I love them. And I don’t want to see them get hurt. Just the nature of politics is hurtful. So every time they are hurt, I get hurt. It’s a lot to ask of people, and it’s a lot to see your friends go through. It’s hard not to get emotional. – Valerie Jarrett

Every American who has paid any attention at all to the goings-on at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, knows who Valerie Jarrett is.

Valerie Jarrett was born in November 1956 to American parents in Shiraz, Iran, where her well-known physician father ran a children’s hospital. When Valerie was five, her family moved to London for one year before arriving in Chicago’s elite Hyde Park neighborhood in 1963.

Jarrett’s maternal grandfather was a Chicago Communist named Robert Taylor, who was involved in the 1940s with the Communist Organizations, the American Peace Mobilization and the Chicago Civil Liberties Committee.  Also a member of these groups was Frank Marshall Davis.

Frank Marshall Davis (1905 – 1987) was an author, liberal activist, Stalinist agent, and self-admitted pedophile (Would you let your children hang around him?) . Davis was involved in Chicago’s South Side Community Art Center, “a meeting place for young African-American writers and artists during the 1940s”. Coming out of the New Deal Federal Art Project, the Art Center was a hangout for the “Culture Group,” a circle of Communist Party members and sympathizers including Richard Wright, Margaret Burroughs, Marion Perkins and Arna Bontemps.

Jarrett’s mother (Robert Taylor’s daughter) is early childhood education author Barbara Taylor Bowman. She was a co-founder of a Chicago-based graduate school in child development known as the Erikson Institute, named after the psychoanalyst Erik Erikson. Back in 1950, Erikson became a hero to the Radical Left when he resigned from professorship at the University of California, rather than submit to sign an anti-communist loyalty oath as the school required.

Additional evidence of the Erikson Institute’s Radical Left political orientation is the make-up of  its board of trustees, which has included, along with Bowman, Tom Ayers (father of Marxist Bomber Bill Ayers (the man Obama called “just a guy in the neighborhood”) and Bill Ayer’s wife, Bernardine Dohrn. Bill Ayers referred to Bowman as “a neighbor and friend” in his 1997 book “A Kind and Just Parent”, in which he wrote that his neighbors also included Louis Farrakhan and “writer Barack Obama”.

Jarrett received a B.A. in psychology from Stanford University in 1978, and a Juris Doctorate from the University of Michigan Law School in 1981. In 1983, she married Dr. William Robert Jarrett, son of the Chicago Sun-Times reporter Vernon Jarrett. Vernon Jarrett was a pioneering black journalist who in the 1940s wrote columns for the communist-influenced Chicago Defender extolling Communist poet Langston Hughes and lifelong Stalinists W.E.B. DuBois and Paul Robeson. Also in the 1940s, Mr. Jarrett was a leader of the Chicago chapter of American Youth for Democracy—youth wing of the Communist Party USA. He also served on a publicity committee for the Packinghouse Workers Union, a Chicago-based entity dominated by the CPUSA.  During his time with each of these Communist Organizations, Mr. Jarrett had close contact with Frank Marshall Davis.

The plot sickens.

Jarrett worked as a Freelance Writer at Kansas City’s The Call from 1954-58, then returned to Chicago to become the first nationally syndicated black columnist for the Chicago Tribune, before going to write for the Chicago Sun-Times. Mr. Jarrett once sat on a union publicity committee (for the communist-controlled Packinghouse Workers Union) with Frank Marshall Davis. When Vernon Jarrett died in 2004, he was saluted in the pages of People’s Weekly Worker, the house organ of the Communist Party USA.

Valerie Jarrett began her political profession by jumping into Chicago politics in 1987. She accepted a position as Deputy Corporation Counsel for Finance and Development in the administration of Harold Washington, the city’s first African-American mayor. Jarrett’s father-in-law, whom The Washington Post called “a key influence in [Harold] Washington’s decision to run for the Chicago mayoralty,” is rumored to have been the “Kingmaker” responsible for Valerie’s rise through Chicago’s political ranks.

Following Mayor Washington’s death in 1987, Valerie Jarrett worked for his successor, Richard M. Daley, as his Deputy Chief of Staff. In 1991, Jarrett and her colleague Susan Sher recruited to Chicago’s City Hall Michelle Robinson (the future Michelle “Mooch” Obama), who was engaged to Barack Obama. Jarrett quickly became a trusted confidante of both the Obamas.

SIDE NOTE: ***In the summer of 1988, while still at Harvard, Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) landed a job as an intern in the Chicago office of the influential law firm of Sidley Austin. ( How does a first-year law student get an internship at such a prestigious law firm?)  He was dating Michelle Robinson, a young lawyer from a working-class family in the South Shore area of the South Side.  She also just happened to be his mentor at the firm. The lovebirds got married in 1990, and settled in the Hyde Park neighborhood on the South Side along the lakefront.  Built around the University of Chicago, both black and white  affluent families lived among the middle class and the poor.  Hyde Park boasts a strong base of independent voters who are committed to political reform, which influenced Obama’s political message.***

Jarrett was Commissioner of the Department of Planning and Development from 1992 through 1995. After that, she chaired the Chicago Transit Board from 1995 to 2005.  Then, from 1995 to 2008, she was the CEO of The Habitat Company, a real estate firm headed by Daniel Levin (cousin of Senator Carl Levin and Representative Sander Levin of Michigan). Marilyn Katz, an activist/public-affairs consultant with close ties to City Hall (and a former Students for a Democratic Society radical) introduced Jarrett to Daniel Levin.

During the years 2000 to 2007, Jarrett was a board member of the Chicago Stock Exchange. She still serves as Chairman of the University of Chicago Medical Center’s Board of Trustees; Vice Chairman of the University of Chicago’s Board of Trustees; a Trustee of Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry; and a Board of Directors member of USG Corporation, a Chicago-based building-materials company.

In 2008, Jarrett was the co-chair of the Obama-Biden Transition Project.

In appreciation of her hard work (and the fact that she was a “bud”), she was appointed to the position of  Senior Advisor and Assistant to the President for Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs in the Obama Administration.

Jarrett swiftly became one of President Obama’s (and Mrs. Obama’s) closest and most trusted advisers. According to what an Obama 2008 campaign official told the New York Times,

If you want [Barack Obama] to do something, there are two people [he's] not going to say no to: Valerie Jarrett and Michelle Obama.

Also in 2008, Susan Sher, who had helped Jarrett recruit Michelle Obama to the Chicago Mayor’s Office in 1991, made a point to emphasize “how incredibly instrumental [Jarrett will] be in virtually everything” in the White House.

Barack Obama thinks that Valerie Jarrett hung the moon and stars.

In July 2009, Obama informed New York Times reporter Robert Draper that,

I trust her completely … She is family.

Obama trusts Jarrett “to speak for me, particularly when we’re dealing with delicate issues.”

The president readily admits that he runs every decision by her.

Concerning her relationship with President Obama, Jarrett says that

We have kind of a mind meld. And chances are, what he wants to do is what I’d want to do.

Jarrett 1Valerie Jarrett is the Senior Adviser and Assistant to the President for Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Engagement. However, her official title belies the wide-reaching power she holds in the Obama Administration. As the President and First Lady’s closest friend and confidante, she is often the last person to leave the Oval Office after meetings, and frequently dines with the first family in their private quarters upstairs in “The People’s House”.

Ms. Jarrett is said to be, by those who would know, “the eyes, ears, and nose of the president and first lady. She tells them who’s saying what about who, who’s loyal and who’s not. She advises them about who they should see when they visit a city or a foreign country. She determines who gets invited to the White House and who is left out in the cold.”

Jarrett is actually more powerful than the White House Chief of Staff, as was demonstrated in the “White House Civil Wars” which occurred between her and Rahm Emmanuel and later, Jarrett and William M. Daley.

As was documented in Jodi Kantor’s book, “The Obamas’”, White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel went to President Barack Obama, offering to resign in the winter of 2010, after a series of newspapers columns were published, which proclaimed him as the only thing keeping the Obama presidency intact. Former Senior Adviser David Axelrod claims that Emanuel knew that those stories “were an embarrassment” to Obama. The president, already doing poorly in his effort to ram Government-run Healthcare down Americans’ throats, refused the offer to resign, despite being convinced that Emmanuel was actually leaking information to those who were writing the columns.

Michelle Obama and Valerie Jarrett formed a coalition, working together against Rahm Emmanuel’s advice concerning what came to be known as the Affordable Care Act. The “team up” to get the president’s ear on the matter, an effort which eventually led to Rahm Emmanuel’s department from the Obama White House.

Chicago Politician William M. Daley, served as Obama’s Chief of Staff from 2011-2012. He is the brother of Former Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley and the youngest son of legendary Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley. Obama chose Daley to be his White House chief of staff back in January 2011, but the former banker and veteran political fighter had a rocky road to hoe, to say the least. To say that the job, was not the best fit for him, would be an understatement.

Daley was brought in to improve relations with the business community, Republican Congressmen and women, and others with whom he had built ties over the years. His attempts to create some sort of a ‘grand bargain’ to solve the debt and deficit row fell apart, due to the influence of Tea Party hardliners in Congress, who refused to back down.

First Lady Michelle Obama become upset over the dominance of Chicago Politicians in the White House.

Additionally, the Obamas were particularly ‘horrified’ when Valerie Jarrett was forced out of her high-ranking job at Chicago’s City Hall in 1995, So Valerie and her gal pal “Mooch” double-teamed Barry’s ear lobes again…and POOF! Sayonara Chief of Staff Daley.

Just because Ms. Jarrett is the president’s Senior Adviser, does not mean that she makes good decisions.

Jarrett is, quite frankly, Obama’s “Bad Idea Friend”.

For example,

Obamacare – Even though both Emanuel and political strategist David Axelrod had warned Obama time and again that he didn’t have the votes to ram Obamacare through Congress, Jarrett was among those who got the president to go full stream ahead and ram it down our throats. And, of course, the rest is history…as Obama’s poll numbers continue to slide.

Bringing the Olympics to Chicago – Emanuel fought with “ValJar” over her plans to have Obama give his Presidential Support to Chicago’s bid for the 2016 Summer Olympics. It was Emanuel’s belief that Jarrett was in cahoots with her old boss, Mayor Daley, and his political cronies in the back rooms of Chicago, who would reap a healthy profit from the billions of dollars that would be spent on the Olympics. Rahmbo’s pleas fell on deaf ears, as Obama and his entourage, including Oprah Winfrey, hopped on Air Force One and jetted to Copenhagen to make an impassioned plea for the Olympics, and came back home with egg on his face.

During that time, it came out that

In an uncommonly hard-hitting investigative piece, the Boston Globe’s Binyamin Appelbaum blew the whistle on the rodent-infested, sewage-clogged Chicago slums run by the Obamas’ most trusted confidante. Jarrett refused to answer any questions about Grove Parc, “citing what she called a continuing duty to Habitat’s former business partners.” A “continuing duty,” presumably, to whitewash the inconvenient truth about the failed public-private partnerships the Obamas continue to promote in the White House:

…In one of those endless Chicago coincidences, Grove Parc Plaza Apartments—now targeted for demolition as a result of years of neglect by Obama’s developer friends—sits in the shadows of the proposed site of the city’s 2016 Olympics Stadium. Valerie Jarrett is vice chair of Chicago’s Olympics committee.

Solyndra – Jarrett was instrumental in securing the $535 million taxpayer-funded loan guarantee to Solyndra, a California solar company which, of course, as all of these “Green Companies” are wont to do, went belly up. Jarrett was closely connected to the George Kaiser Family Foundation, which controlled 35.7 percent of Solyndra. The foundation had made a sizable donation to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where Jarrett once served as chairwoman and where one of Obama’s best friends, Eric Whitaker, is currently executive vice president.

The Raid on bin Laden – According to author Richard Minter, in his book “Leading From Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors Who Decide for Him”, Obama canceled the mission to kill bin Laden in January 2011, again in February, and a third time in March. According to the author, Jarrett persuaded him to hold off each time, according to the book.

Minter, a two-time New York Times best-selling author, cited an unnamed source with Joint Special Operations Command who had direct knowledge of the operation and its planning, as his source.

Minter also noted that Obama administration officials said after the raid that the president had delayed giving the order to kill the mastermind behind the barbaric slaughter of 3,000 Americans on September 11, 2001, the day before the raid was carried out, in what turned out to be his fourth moment of indecision. At the time, the Administration laid the blame for the delay on unfavorable weather conditions near bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

However, when Minter obtained that day’s weather reports from the U.S. Air Force Combat Meteorological Center, he said, they showed perfect weather conditions for the SEALs to carry out their orders.

SUMMARY: So, who is Valerie Jarrett? Yes, she is Obama’s Senior Adviser and Assistant to the President for Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Engagement. However, that is just the top of the iceberg.

She is the Obamas’ best friend and consigliere.  She holds more power that anyone in the White House, except the First Couple themselves. Iranian by both birth and heritage and Communist or, at least, Radical Left, by familial affiliation, she brings a dangerous combination of both religious and political ideologues, espoused n the enemies of America, to a position of political power and governmental authority, in which she is quite capable, in a clandestine fashion, of changing the direction of the most powerful nation on the face of the Earth.

Scary, huh?

To Impeach Or Not To Impeach…That Is the Question

July 30, 2014

Obama-Shrinks-2So, here we are…2014…approximately five and one-half years after Barack Hussein Obama assumed the mantle of President of the United States.

This new President, who, according to Vice-President Joe Biden, was clean and articulate, was praised by the Main Stream Media, the Liberal Democrat Hierarchy in Washington, and anybody who was anybody in Hollywood, as being someone “extra-special”who could make the oceans rise and fall , heal the sick, raise the dead, and make the little girls talk out of their head.

American schoolchildren were singing hymns of praise to this new Messiah, written by their school teachers, who foresaw a lucrative career in their futures, under this new wunderkind.

Obama soon hit the ground running, appropriating our tax money to fund abortions around the world…and, he was just getting started!

Before too long, along came Obamacare and the division between our political parties became wider than ever.

It soon became apparent that all of the fears, held by American Conservatives before the election, were absolutely true…and then some.

As his presidency progressed, Obama proved to be a master of the teleprompter and even wrote his own speeches (or, so we were told). However, if you take away the teleprompter of the United States, the “Leader of the Free World” sounds like a tongue tied schoolboy on his first date.

His Foreign Policy of Smart Power!, administered by his Secretary of State, Former First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, turned out to be a disaster, which led to the Middle East erupting into a giant bonfire, which was euphemistically named “Arab Spring”, because it was supposed to bring new hope to the Middle East.

Instead, all it did was replace Moderate Muslim Dictators with Radical Muslim Dictators.

“Smart Power!” carries on even now, with Senator John Kerry having replaced Mrs Clinton as the Head of the State Department.

“Ol’ Horse Face” has been less than spectacular since taking over in January of 2013. He and his boss decided that they would try to rain in Russian Leader Vladimir Putin, with sanctions against him and his country. This strategy has proven to be about as effective as Michelle’s diet plan for the nations schools.

Obama has succeeded through his “Smart Power!” Foreign Policy to alienate our friends and empower our enemies.

Yesterday, I read that Secretary of State Kerry was whining that Israel was not listening to him, concerning his attempt to broker a cease-fire between them with Hamas.

Why should Israel listen to Secretary Kerry?

He and his boss have done nothing for  Bibi Netanyahu and Israel, except to stab them in the back in private, while claiming to support what they are doing in public.

As one of those affected by this economy and in the middle of a job search, I can state without hesitation that Obama’s Domestic Policy, including his Economy Policy stinks on ice.

Over 92 million Americans have dropped out of our work force, due to frustration in their efforts to find meaningful employment.

It was also announced yesterday that the Gross Domestic Product was up for the 2nd Quarter and judging from the reaction of the Main Stream Media, one would have thought that it was the greatest thing since sliced bread.

Meanwhile, out here in the real world, America’s Economy remains stagnant, due to Obama’s Socialist Economic Policy, which punishes the job creators and rewards the 47%.

And, to further his goal of “radically changing” America, Obama has encouraged America’s invasion by tens of thousands of illegal aliens, who are being cared for at taxpayers’ expense.

As Americans have watched, Obama’s Foreign and Domestic Policies have lead to a crumbling of America’s economic standing and place of prestige, among the nations of the world.

Over the last few months, it has become very apparent to not only the professional politicians in Washington, but to their constituents back home as well, that Obama has just been “calling it in”.

Obama seems more interested in vacationing and golfing, than he does in doing his job.

His Administration is so corrupt that I would not want to be around them, either.

But, I digress…

The falling down to Earth of the Liberals’ messiah has left the Democratic Party in a quandary as we approach the 2014 Midterm Elections.

How do you stir up excitement to vote for the political party of a failing President?

Simple. You get hold of your friends in the mainstream media and you tell anyone who listens, that the Republican Party wants to impeach President Barack Hussein Obama.

Your hope being, that this action of old white Republicans attempting to oust the First Black President of the United States of America, will anger and energize the Democratic Base so much, that they will ignore the poor track record of Obama and their Democrat Senators and Representatives,  and the threat of impeachment will somehow head off the political massacre that is going to befall the Democrat Party in November of 2014.

I believe that the Democrat Hierarchy saw recent polls demonstrating how far the President’s popularity has fallen, such as the one which showed that one-third of the nation wants to impeach Barack Hussein Obama, and they decided to use it as a political tool with which to retain their phony baloney jobs this November.

Now, I’ll be honest with you: I want to impeach the Prevaricator-in-Chief, myself.

However, prudence dictates that we wait until after we regain the Senate in November of this year.

I believe that it is our duty  as American Conservatives to get out the vote and elect Conservatives in November.

Once the election is over, we  can not-so-subtly remind these newly elected Congressmen and those who have already been up in Washington for years, just exactly who it is that they work for.

Then, “We The People” can decide if we want our elected representatives to impeach the Petulant President.

By then, unless his Democrat Advisors tell him not to, Obama is very likely to have passed Amnesty by Executive Order, and whatever else he can think of.

In his arrogance, Obama truly believes that he is untouchable. It’s good to be the King!

In conclusion, boys and girls, it’s time for us to gear up.

Support your local Conservatives for national office and continue to put pressure on those who are already in Washington.

Remind these “public servants” that November is coming fast.

And, Americans are paying attention.

Until He Comes,

A Presidential Priority Problem

July 19, 2014

Obama80sCalledAs we journey through this Quixotic Quest, known as our everyday lives, we come across windmills, which we must tilt with daily, known as “priorities”.

Priorities are unique, perplexing things, as they vary from individual to individual.

For those of us between employment, it is finding a meaningful, well-paying job, so that we may provide for our families. For other Americans, it could be the care of their elderly loved ones. For others, their priority may be to climb the Corporate Ladder at their place of employment.

For the parents of 30-year-old Liberals and “puff puff” “l”ibertarians, it may be that their priority is to get their slacker of a “kid” to move out of the basement.

But, I digress…

Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm), the 44th President of these United States, has a problem.

(No, I don’t mean his overbearing wife, Mooch, and her desire to build shopping carts, which will tell us what “healthy” foods to buy. That’s a subject for another blog. Besides, it takes that heifer two rips to haul a.. …well, you know.)

Obama’s problem is one of MISPLACED PRIORITIES.

This problem started the very first time he took the Oath of Office, which clearly outlines his duties as President of the United States of America…

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.

Let’s examine the President’s MISPLACED PRIORITIES by using the three words which I underlined in the Oath of Office as topic headings, shall we?

To begin with, let’s examine the word PRESERVE.

It is a conflict of interest to swear to “preserve” a country which you have already promised to “radically change”.

As we have discovered, since Obama’s First Inauguration, all those long years ago, Obama has no intention of “preserving” the Land of our Founding Fathers and of hard-working Patriotic Americans, who sacrificed so much, for this Shining City Upon a Hill.

Yes, Mrs. Obama. Those before us, sacrificed “All this for a flag.”

Then, there is Obama’s Domestic Policy, in keeping with his promise to “radically change” this country, which has resulted in 92,000,000 Americans  “dropping out” of our Work Force, because they cannot find meaningful jobs in a stagnant economy, controlled by a huge all-powerful Central Government, who rewards the slackers, by giving them FREE STUFF from cradle to grave and punishes those Entrepreneurial Americans who actually hire Americans,with onerous tax burdens, slifling competitiveness and creativity, literally bringing to a halt America’s Engine of Economic Growth.

And, finally, under this “PRESERVE” heading, there is Obama and his Administration’s misplaced priority of establishing a “Tyranny of the Minority”, when it comes to imposing the immorality and situational ethics of a very small minority of Americans on the overwhelming majority of the rest of us, through the use of “Push Polls” perpetuated by the sycophantic Main Stream Media and Liberal Activist Judges, whose sole purpose is to further Obama’s original promise to “radically change” our country, including the definition of a word which has meant the same thing for thousands of years.

Next, Obama swore an oath to PROTECT America.

Obama started his presidency by bowing in front of  America’s enemies, during his World Apology Tour.

No President of the United States has every effectively protected our nation from a POSITION OF WEAKNESS.

Ask Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, whose milksop endeavors in Foreign Policy led to increased attacks by the Radical Adherents of the “Religion of Peace’, otherwise known as Muslim Terrorism, or as Obama’s staff immediately renamed these wanton acts of violence, “Man-caused Disasters”.

Also, how can you “protect” a nation whose Southern Border is WIDE OPEN, presently allowing entrance to our Sovereign Nation by our enemies and virulent disease, alike?

By allowing the present Illegal Alien Invasion, Obama is saying to the world,

Hey, C’mon in! Our Estados Unidos es tu Estados Unidos! Sit a spell. Unstrap your sidearm. Take us over.

And, that leads us to our final topic heading, DEFEND.

How can the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave be defended by a President and his Administration who are so naive that they actually believe that they can effectively defend our Soverien Nation by cutting down our Military to pre-World War II Levels?

Our soldiers are, even as I write this, being handed, their “pink slips” in the field. (And, no, I am not talking about the repeal of DADT. Our Brightest and Best are receiving “Termination Notices” while on Active Duty).

Brilliant, huh?

Former Congressman and retired Lt. Col. Allen B. West thinks so, too. He wrote that

For Obama and [Secretary of Defense Chuck] Hagel to believe taking the US Army down to pre-World War II levels is a smart decision evidences their abject stupidity in comprehending the global conflagrations in which we are embroiled — the enemy has a vote. This whole inane statement about “pivoting to the Asian-Pacific rim” is more empty rhetoric as we decimate our US Naval strength while China builds theirs.

Barack Hussein Obama cannot be seen as a Commander-in-Chief and I will never refer to him that way. His fundamental transformation of America means weakening our nation and leaving our Republic less secure. I can just imagine how appreciative and elated his Muslim Brotherhood friends are at this point, to include Turkey’s President Erdogan, as well as the mad mullahs in Iran.

I realize that I could have grown this Blog exponentially, by listing all of Obama’s MISPLACED PRIORITIES en masse.

However, i believe that simplicity in communication is the best way to get one’s point across.

The point I have been attempting to maker today, is a rather simplistic one, in deference to the Liberals whom I know read this blog on a daily basis, attempting to catch me in some sort of “lie”, which only they can see.

Obama’s MISPLACED PRIORITIES have not only tarnished this Shining City Upon a ill, but it has endangered the continued existence of America and her citizens, with every day this past week, bringing a new example of Obama’s deliberate ineptness and shallow behavior, in the poor fulfillment of his Oath of Office, to the degree to which average Americans are concerned about their children’s’ and grandchildren’ sfuture.

Obama has failed miserably in his sworn duties as President of the United States.

But, then again, perhaps the only promise he intended to keep, was to “radically change” America.

…for the worse.

God protect us.

If I Were a Socialist U.S. President…[Summer 2014 Edition]

June 13, 2014

obamamywork

**In respectful honor and memory of the late, great Paul Harvey, an American Original, (September 4, 1918 – February 28, 2009)**

Prologue: Back in January of this year, I wrote a blog describing what I would do, if “I were a Socialist U.S. President”. I have since decided to add to it, since things have further spiraled out of control since my original post.

If I were a Socialist U.S. President…

I would begin to plant seeds during my Inaugural Address, concerning the disparity between the Haves and the Have-nots. In other words, I would intentionally begin to divide the nation through the use of Class Warfare.

Also, during that address I would push for a National Healthcare System, regardless of the fact that such a monstrous entity has never worked, anywhere it has been tried.

I would preach about hope and change, but like all Marxists, I would be hoping to bring subjugation and looking to “radically change” a nation, all in the name of “Fairness and Equality”.

The first thing I would do, when I took office, would be to send money around the world, to finance abortions. In this way, I would show the world that there is a new boss in the United States, who wants to radically change the Shining City on a Hill into just another country.

Next, I would push for the passage of an outrageous spending bill that would actually be a cover for paying back political favors.

I would invite the already-sycophantic Main Stream Media to come to the White House for closed-door meetings, where I would tell them to “get with the program”, if they wanted to receive any news stories from this White House at all.

I would makes speeches about how marvelous a Government-run National Healthcare  System would be, making hollow promises like,

If you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance. if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.

all the while knowing that I was lying my hindquarters off.

Once I got my slaves in the Congress to pass this nation-changing National Healthcare Law, I would put the pedal to the metal and continuously push for other outrageous and expensive programs designed to grow the central government.

I would convince Americans that growing the central government is the only solution to a rapidly failing economy and that being unemployed and unable to provide for your family is actually a “fun-cation”.

And, while Americans were suffering through this Economic Depression, I would rant and rave about “Income Inequality”, while my family and I would take frequent vacations, costing the taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars, and throw lavish private parties at the White House, in a manner reminiscent of the old Soviet Union’s Politburo.

Realizing that the Heartland of America was still Conservative in nature, I would reach out to those Americans who believe themselves to be a mistreated minority. I would reach out to those on the fringes of society. Those Americans, who because of poor upbringing, poor education, or simply making bad decisions concerning their lives, now consider themselves deprived of the American Dream.

These people would compose about 47 percent of the population. They would be my core supporters, much like Nikolai Lenin and the Bolsheviks.

Having done a miserable job in my First Term as President, I would promise these Bolsheviks that if reelected, I would be their Santa Claus.

And, I would continue to blame my predecessor for the wretched state of the economy, even though, by now, it would be my responsibility.

Once I was reelected, there would be no stopping me. It would not matter to me what the popularity polls said, I would continue to claim that those who provide Americans with jobs were “the evil 1%” and identify their success in creating the Greatest Economic System in the World, as the “real reason” for the Economic Depression that America was in.

I would change the Moderate political stances which I “supposedly” held during the campaign for my first election as President, and show my true colors, following a political path pursuant to my true Far Left Radical Political Ideology.

I would alienate Conservative Christians living in America’s Heartland by vilifying them as “Bitter Clingers”, marginalizing them throughout my presidency.

I would push for “gay marriage” and the legalization of marijuana. Through redefining the definition of the family unit, and eliminating Christianity from everyday American Life, I will eliminate the “backbone” of the nation…the two main barriers that will keep me from radically changing America into a socialist nation. By legalizing marijuana, I will succeed in dumbing down the population and eliminating their desire to succeed as individuals, making them even more subservient and reliant on the Almighty State for their very existence, thus creating a new “Proletariat”.

Regarding Foreign Policy, I would bow in deference to other world leaders, demonstrating to them and the rest of the world, that I do not believe that the United States of America, whom I am supposed to be the Biggest Advocate for, is exceptional in any way.

I would not negotiate with America’s Enemies from a position of strength. Instead, I would blindly trust those who have sworn to kill us, even if they are on the threshold of building a nuclear bomb, simply because I identify with their Political Ideology, which masquerades as a religion.

I would pull out of still turbulent areas in the Middle East, encouraging the Barbaric Forces of Radical Islam to move in and conquer the very cities where our Brightest and Best sacrificed their lives in service to America.

On the 70th Anniversary of D-Day, I would sit at a solemn International Memorial Service, smacking my gum like a cow chews his cud, as if I was behind the bench at a Chicago Bulls Basketball Game, dishonoring our fallen and enraging our allies.

In other words, I would embrace America’s Enemies, and alienate America’s Friends.

I would use the finest military in the world as a subject for Social Engineering Experiments, ending “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and moving women into combat positions, even though their lack of physical strength would endanger the American Soldiers they are fighting beside.

I would remove God from the Air Force Oath and forbid soldiers from speaking about Christ to others. I would also begin Military Training which would identify Evangelicals as “Terrorists”.

I would trade 5 Murderous Muslim Terrorist Generals, for one useless, traitorous, American Army Deserter, who was discharged in 2006 from the Coast Guard for Psychological Issues, who later converted to the Religious/Political Ideology of his Captors, and whose Father’s Youtube Account praised the same Radical Muslims and their Political Ideology which poses as a religion, just because I wish to make a Political Point about closing the prison in which the enemies of our country were being held.

While I am at it, I would allow my wife to place the military on a diet plan that is similar to the one which would already be failing in America’s Public Schools.

I would use the Judicial System, The Department of Justice, the NSA, and  Internal Revenue Service as my Palace Guard, using Activist judges to overturn the will of the people and harassing political opposition through uncalled-for Tax Audits.

I would use unmanned drones and blimps for unwarranted surveillance on American Citizens.

I would push for Gun Confiscation, calling it “Gun Control”, in the “name of the children”, all the while supporting the murder of the unborn in their mothers’ wombs, because having a baby is “a punishment”.

Because, after all, as Vladimir Lenin said,

One man with a gun can control 100 without one. 

I would imperiously announce that if Congress did not pass the laws that I wanted them to pass, I would go around them and rule by Executive Order.

I would open our Southern Borders, bypassing our immigration laws, encouraging millions of illegal aliens to enter our nation, including unaccompanied minors, spurred on by propaganda intentionally leaked to their Latin American Home Nations in support of this Mexican Munchkin Migration.

All the while, pushing Congress for “Immigration Reform”, i.e., “Amnesty”, in order to assure that my Political Party would hold onto their Political Power, in order to finish the intentional “Radical Change” of the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.

Finally, if I were a Socialist U.S. President, I would blame others for my incompetency. I would portray myself as a victim of a Capitalist System and a Racist Ideology that was still prevalent in a nation that was too narrow-minded to allow me to lead them to a Socialist Paradise.

Of course, that could never happen HERE, could it?

Norman Matoon Thomas (1884-1968) was a six-time Presidential Candidate  representing the Socialist Party of America.  In a campaign interview in 1948, he said the following:

The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.

Valerie Jarrett: The Power Behind the Throne, Part 2 – The White House Years

May 20, 2014

Valerie Jarrett #2Valerie Jarrett is the Senior Adviser and Assistant to the President for Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Engagement. However, her official title belies the wide-reaching power she holds in the Obama Administration. As the President and First Lady’s closest friend and confidante, she is often the last person to leave the Oval Office after meetings, and frequently dines with the first family in their private quarters upstairs in “The People’s House”.

Ms. Jarrett is said to be, by those who would know, “the eyes, ears, and nose of the president and first lady. She tells them who’s saying what about who, who’s loyal and who’s not. She advises them about who they should see when they visit a city or a foreign country. She determines who gets invited to the White House and who is left out in the cold.”

Jarrett is actually more powerful than the White House Chief of Staff, as was demonstrated in the “White House Civil Wars” which occurred between her and Rahm Emmanuel and later, Jarrett and William M. Daley.

As was documented in Jodi Kantor’s book, “The Obamas'”, White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel went to President Barack Obama, offering to resign in the winter of 2010, after a series of newspapers columns were published, which proclaimed him as the only thing keeping the Obama presidency intact. Former Senior Adviser David Axelrod claims that Emanuel knew that those stories “were an embarrassment” to Obama. The president, already doing poorly in his effort to ram Government-run Healthcare down Americans’ throats, refused the offer to resign, despite being convinced that Emmanuel was actually leaking information to those who were writing the columns.

Michelle Obama and Valerie Jarrett formed a coalition, working together against Rahm Emmanuel’s advice concerning what came to be known as the Affordable Care Act. The “team up” to get the president’s ear on the matter, an effort which eventually led to Rahm Emmanuel’s department from the Obama White House.

Chicago Politician William M. Daley, served as Obama’s Chief of Staff from 2011-2012. He is the brother of Former Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley and the youngest son of legendary Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley. Obama chose Daley to be his White House chief of staff back in January 2011, but the former banker and veteran political fighter had a rocky road to hoe, to say the least. To say that the job, was not the best fit for him, would be an understatement.

Daley was brought in to improve relations with the business community, Republican Congressmen and women, and others with whom he had built ties over the years. His attempts to create some sort of a ‘grand bargain’ to solve the debt and deficit row fell apart, due to the influence of Tea Party hardliners in Congress, who refused to back down.

First Lady Michelle Obama become upset over the dominance of Chicago Politicians in the White House.

Additionally, the Obamas were particularly ‘horrified’ when Valerie Jarrett was forced out of her high-ranking job at Chicago’s City Hall in 1995, So Valerie and her gal pal “Mooch” double-teamed Barry’s ear lobes again…and POOF! Sayonara Chief of Staff Daley.

Just because Ms. Jarrett is the president’s Senior Adviser, does not mean that she makes good decisions.

Jarrett is, quite frankly, Obama’s “Bad Idea Friend”.

For example,

Obamacare – Even though both Emanuel and political strategist David Axelrod had warned Obama time and again that he didn’t have the votes to ram Obamacare through Congress, Jarrett was among those who got the president to go full stream ahead and ram it down our throats. And, of course, the rest is history…as Obama’s poll numbers continue to slide.

Bringing the Olympics to Chicago – Emanuel fought with “ValJar” over her plans to have Obama give his Presidential Support to Chicago’s bid for the 2016 Summer Olympics. It was Emanuel’s belief that Jarrett was in cahoots with her old boss, Mayor Daley, and his political cronies in the back rooms of Chicago, who would reap a healthy profit from the billions of dollars that would be spent on the Olympics. Rahmbo’s pleas fell on deaf ears, as Obama and his entourage, including Oprah Winfrey, hopped on Air Force One and jetted to Copenhagen to make an impassioned plea for the Olympics, and came back home with egg on his face.

During that time, it came out that

In an uncommonly hard-hitting investigative piece, the Boston Globe’s Binyamin Appelbaum blew the whistle on the rodent-infested, sewage-clogged Chicago slums run by the Obamas’ most trusted confidante. Jarrett refused to answer any questions about Grove Parc, “citing what she called a continuing duty to Habitat’s former business partners.” A “continuing duty,” presumably, to whitewash the inconvenient truth about the failed public-private partnerships the Obamas continue to promote in the White House:

…In one of those endless Chicago coincidences, Grove Parc Plaza Apartments—now targeted for demolition as a result of years of neglect by Obama’s developer friends—sits in the shadows of the proposed site of the city’s 2016 Olympics Stadium. Valerie Jarrett is vice chair of Chicago’s Olympics committee.

Solyndra – Jarrett was instrumental in securing the $535 million taxpayer-funded loan guarantee to Solyndra, a California solar company which, of course, as all of these “Green Companies” are wont to do, went belly up. Jarrett was closely connected to the George Kaiser Family Foundation, which controlled 35.7 percent of Solyndra. The foundation had made a sizable donation to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where Jarrett once served as chairwoman and where one of Obama’s best friends, Eric Whitaker, is currently executive vice president.

The Raid on bin Laden – According to author Richard Minter, in his book “Leading From Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors Who Decide for Him”, Obama canceled the mission to kill bin Laden in January 2011, again in February, and a third time in March. According to the author, Jarrett persuaded him to hold off each time, according to the book.

Minter, a two-time New York Times best-selling author, cited an unnamed source with Joint Special Operations Command who had direct knowledge of the operation and its planning, as his source.

Minter also noted that Obama administration officials said after the raid that the president had delayed giving the order to kill the mastermind behind the barbaric slaughter of 3,000 Americans on September 11, 2001, the day before the raid was carried out, in what turned out to be his fourth moment of indecision. At the time, the Administration laid the blame for the delay on unfavorable weather conditions near bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

However, when Minter obtained that day’s weather reports from the U.S. Air Force Combat Meteorological Center, he said, they showed perfect weather conditions for the SEALs to carry out their orders.

SUMMARY: So, who is Valerie Jarrett? Yes, she is Obama’s Senior Adviser and Assistant to the President for Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Engagement. However, that is just the top of the iceberg.

She is the Obamas’ best friend and consigliere.  She holds more power that anyone in the White House, except the First Couple themselves. Iranian by both birth and heritage and Communist or, al least, Radical Left, by familial affiliation, she brings a dangerous combination of both religious and political ideologues, espoused n the enemies of America, to a position of political power and governmental authority, in which she is quite capable, in a clandestine fashion, of changing the direction of the most powerful nation on the face of the Earth.

Scary, huh?

Michelle Obama Laments “the Continuing Segregation of America’s Schools” at Topeka Graduation Commencement

May 17, 2014

michelleobamatopekaI remember when desegregation began in the Memphis City School System. I was going into 10th grade at a school that I had only been at for one year.

To say that there were several months of uneasiness would be an understatement.

That first year, things were strained, as the white students and the black students got to know one another, and the school administrators tried to figure out how to best deal with court ordered forced busing.

That year, I was a student council representative, representing the 10th grade. However, I was not alone. The school decided to have a black student representative for the 10th grade, as well, in order to give everyone in this new situation, a voice.

The majority of students got along surprisingly well that first year. Of course, you had your knuckleheads… on both sides. I know because I was picked on by them, being a 4 foot tall little nerdy 10th grader.

Luckily for me, I had a Senior football player who lived next door to me. “Steve”, thought I was hilarious, because I was a second-generation smart-aleck, and pretty soon I was making all of the jocks laugh,  and wound up video taping the football games, in black and white reel to reel format, from the roofs of the stadiums, and being a manager on both the basketball and baseball teams.

By the time that we were seniors, my Bicentennial Class had received several noteworthy awards, including having the number one Girl”s ROTC Drill Team in the nation.

The fellow who was my partner at being 10th grade representative on the Student Council wound up making a 32 on the ATC and getting a full ride to Harvard. The last time I heard anything about him, he was at Johns Hopkins.

During my journey through high school, I made some good friends, who happened to be black. Two of them are Facebook friends all these years later, one of them a preacher in Dallas.

Unfortunately, the school system in which we flourished no longer exists, the victim of decades of poor management. It is now the Shelby County School System, as those same poor managers, wound up surrendering their charter, in a legal move which forced a merger with the more affluent and better managed Shelby County Schools. And, now that school boards majority is made up of those same poor managers.
What prompted me to take this long trip down memory lane, was an article I read on the Drudge Report, which told of First Lady Michelle Obama speaking to 1200 students in Topeka Kansas on Friday night at their high school graduation commencement.

Of course, “Mooch”, made it all about her, detailing all of her struggles as a young student.

However, then she started down political road, which was quite unseemly for a First Lady of the United States and the occasion at which he spoke.

According to the First Lady, American schools are more segregated than they have ever been, as CNN reports…

The speech followed the all-too-familiar script of commencement speeches – with the first lady making appropriate pop culture references that received wild applause.

She praised the diversity many of the students saw in media today, from ethnic diversity in TV shows like the “The Walking Dead,” to the NFL recently drafting openly-gay football player Michael Sam.

However, Obama also highlighted the areas where she sees diversity lacking, “Many districts in this country have actually pulled back on efforts to integrate their schools and many communities have become less diverse as folks have moved from cities to suburbs.”

“Many young people in America are going to school largely with kids who look just like them,” Obama said. “Too often, those schools aren’t equal, especially ones attended by students of color, which too often lag behind, with crumbling classrooms and less experienced teachers.”

Obama called on the students to speak up – in their classrooms and with their families, as well as in the future as they attend college, start jobs and begin families. She challenged them to never shy away from discussing prejudice.

“We need your generation to help us break through – we need all of you to ask the hard questions and have the honest conversations because that is the only way we will heal the wounds of the past and move forward to a better future.”

She warned that this is not easy, “There will be times when you’ll get frustrated or discouraged,” Obama said. “But whenever I start to feel that way, I just take a step back and remind myself of all the progress I’ve seen in my short lifetime.”

Notice how Mrs. Obama did not touch on any reasons for this “lack of diversity”, which would have more clearly explained the situation facing America’s Schools.

For example,

1. Decades of poor management by school boards , populated by officials elected by communities who became more focused on the color of a politician’s skin, than the content of their character.

2. Gang Violence, both on school grounds and off of them.

3. Politicized curriculum.

4. Poor School Administrators and Faculty. (It happens.)

5. Fed-up parents, who moved their children to the suburbs, in order to give them the best education possible….because they love them.

Liberals, such as the First Lady, are the biggest proponents of racial division and segregation that exist.

All these decades, since I was in school, they have perpetuated a process which was designed from the get-go, to achieve mediocrity.

For, as Marx taught, in a society where everyone (the proletariat) are all the same, the Federal Government becomes their parents and the ultimate authority figure.

However, Liberals never have figured out that Americans, regardless of skin color, will not be forced to do anything that they do not want to do.

Whatever segregation which still exists in America’s schools, is a segregation of their own making.

Until He Comes,

Petition Circulating to Keep Moochelle From Speaking At High School Graduation

April 21, 2014

Michelle ObamaI remember my High School Graduation. It took place in our school gym, which had two-story bleachers on each side and held 2,500. Our class was 360 strong, so, it was a lengthy ceremony, to say the least.

Right after the ceremony began, our Principal, (who in reality, was a wonderful man and a great Principal) decided that the air conditioner was too loud. So, on that hot Memphis in May night in 1976, in a jam-packed gymnasium of over 2,5000, he turned the air conditioner off.

But, hey, I would suffer through that again…because it would be better than having to sit there and listen to Michelle Obama deliver the keynote address.

The New York Daily News reports that

…A furor over what the Topeka school district considers an honor has erupted after plans were announced for Obama to address a combined graduation ceremony for five area high schools next month at an 8,000-seat arena. For some, it was the prospect of a tight limit on the number of seats allotted to each graduate. For others, it was the notion that Obama’s speech, tied to the 60th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Brown v. Board of Education outlawing segregation in schools, would overshadow the student’s big day.

“I’m a single mother who has raised him for 18 years by myself,” said Tina Hernandez, parent of Topeka High School senior Dauby Knight. “I’ve told him education is the only way out. This is one of the biggest days of their lives. They’ve taken the glory and shine from the children and put on Mrs. Obama. She doesn’t know our kids.”

Hernandez was among the parents and students who spoke Thursday at a school board meeting and urged district officials to reconsider their decision to invite Obama. Ron Harbaugh, spokesman for the Topeka school district, said Friday discussions were under way to work out the logistics and planning for the event, including how many tickets each family would be allotted.

“We will have a clearer picture of what’s going on,” Harbaugh said.

Harbaugh said officials asked the president or first lady to speak at graduation as a tie-in with the anniversary of the Brown decision, which outlawed school segregation. The district plans to place a priority on seating students and their families, and could broadcast the event to an overflow room at a hotel adjacent to the graduation arena for those unable to find a seat inside.

That’s not good enough for Taylor Gifford, 18, who started an online petition Thursday evening to urge the district to reconsider its plans. She and the more than 1,200 people who had signed it expressed concern that Obama’s visit would limit the seating options for family and friends.

“I really would like it to have a peaceful solution, but there is so much misinformation going on,” Gifford said.

Gifford said her initial reaction to the news was excitement, saying she was “freaking out” about the prospect of the first lady speaking at graduation. When rumors of limited tickets surfaced, Gifford felt like the focus was being shifted from the students to Obama.

“People think it’s a great opportunity, but it’s the graduates’ time. They are getting that diploma that they worked so hard for,” Gifford said. “Families are feeling that they are being cheated out of the loved ones special day.”

Abbey Rubottom, 18, a Topeka High senior, described herself as a “die-hard Democrat” but doesn’t like the idea of Obama sharing the stage with graduates.

“No disrespect for the first lady, and it’s amazing that she wants to come speak, I just think it doesn’t belong at graduation,” Rubottom said.

Rubottom suggested separate ceremonies with Obama speaking at one and the address being replayed at the other.

Some people have said bringing in the first lady politicizes the graduation. Others have suggested that if she wants to mark the Brown anniversary, she could just visit the historic site that commemorates the decision, which is just few blocks from the graduation venue.

The Brown site is housed in a former all-black school where the lead plaintiff’s daughter and another plaintiff’s child in the desegregation case were students. It tells the story of the 1954 Supreme Court decision.

Messages seeking comment from the first lady’s office in Washington were not immediately returned Friday.

Mooch? Attention-seeking? Race-dividing? Why, where did they every get those ideas?

I’m glad you asked.

In 1985, the future First Lady of the United States of America, who is presently represented our nation is one of the most powerful Communist Countries in the world, wrote her master’s thesis at Princeton University. The title was “Princeton Educated Blacks and the Black Communities” by Michelle LaVaughn Robinson.

In a 66 page thesis which comes off more like a personal diary, the Future First Lady spoke about her personal experiences at Princeton University and her race-based reflections of her experience there. She wrote,

Earlier in my college career there was no doubt in my mind that as a member of the Black community I was somehow obligated to this community and would utilize all of my present and future resources to benefit this community first and foremost. My experiences at Princeton have made me for more aware of my “Blackness” than ever before. I have found that at Princeton no matter how little Liberal and open minded some of my White professors and classmates try to be towards me, I sometimes feel like a visitor on campus as if I really don’t belong. Regardless of the circumstances under which I interact with White at Princeton it often seems as if to them always be Black first and a student second.

These experiences have made it apparent to me that the path I have chosen to follow by attending Princeton will likely lead to my full integration and/or assimilation into a White cultural and social structure that will only allow me to remain on the periphery of society; never becoming a full participant. This realization has presently,made my goals to actively utilize my resources to benefit the Black community more desirable.

At the same time, however. it is conceivable that my four years of exposure to a predominantly white Ivy League university has instilled within me certain conservative values.

What Mooch referred to as “conservative values” was  a love of status, power, and money.

And, as fare as her ethnocentric, “put-upon” point-of-view, it remains with her, to this very day.

In the March 10th, 2008 edition of The New Yorker, a 10 page article titled The Other Obama,  covering the future First Lady was published.  Here’s an excerpt:

Obama begins with a broad assessment of life in America in 2008, and life is not good: we’re a divided country, we’re a country that is “just downright mean,” we are “guided by fear,” we’re a nation of cynics, sloths, and complacents. “We have become a nation of struggling folks who are barely making it every day,” she said, as heads bobbed in the pews. “Folks are just jammed up, and it’s gotten worse over my lifetime. And, doggone it, I’m young. Forty-four!”

Now, for the life of me, I just can’t figure out how we peons in the Heartland ever came up with the notion that the First Lady of the United States of America is an “angry black woman”.  Can you?

I don’t blame the parents and kids who have signed that petition. I would not want that racist, self-serving, Anti-American heifer speaking at my High School Graduation, either. A graduation ceremony is supposed to be about the accomplishments of the graduates.

And, whenever Michelle Obama speaks, it’s all about her.

Until He Comes,

Of Russian Bears, “Kenyan” Community Organizers, and Unrepentant Mooches

March 19, 2014

obamaputinbracketsLike every other “political pundit” out there, I have been writing a lot lately about the Ukrainian Situation… and, rightfully so.

The way that the Obama administration has handled this whole affair has been as comical as a Benny Hill Chase Scene with “Yakety Sax” playing in the background.

Perhaps, President Obama could keep his eye on the ball better if he and his wife were not trying to run every cotton-pickin’ aspect of our daily lives, while spending our money on their own self gratification.

For example, First Lady Michelle Obama or “Mooch”, as I call her, packed up the kids and “Mudear” and flew off to China for a family vacation at our expense.

According to The New York Times,

Michelle Obama’s trip to China starting on Wednesday will be non political the White House says. A people-to-people exchange emphasizing the importance that both nations place on education. As if to underscore the point no reporters are traveling with the first lady, and she does not plan to get interviews while there.

In other words, where Mooch is going and how she is spending our money is none of our business.

I saw on

twitter yesterday, where Liberal Rag, “USA Today”, listed  how many times our Former First Ladies visited China, as a way of sticking up for Mooch.

Of course, those First Ladies did not bring along their kids and mother, they actually accompanied their husband, the President of the United States.

While we’re on the subject of the First Lady, back in January it was announced that Subway restaurants and Michelle Obama were partnering together to produce a 41 million dollar campaign, lasting 3 years, in which Mooch will promote allegedly healthy food products, sold by the restaurant chain.

Since when did the wife of the President of the United States become an Advertising Spokesperson?

On the bright side, this little piece of propaganda will not last long, as the sight of “the Queen of taxpayer-funded vay-cays” promoting Subway Restaurants will do more damage than a mass outbreak of botulism.

But, I digress…

So, what is the Leader of the Free World doing while his wife blows taxpayer dollars in China, and Russia begins its annexation of Eastern Europe?

The Washington Post tells us…

President Barack Obama released an NCAA bracket Wednesday that, even by his own account, isn’t all that inspired.

Trying to rebound from years of busted brackets, Obama picked Michigan State to beat Louisville.

“It’s been awhile since I won my pool,” Obama said on ESPN, where he revealed his picks. “Michigan State, bring it home for me.”

As he has in the past, Obama played it safe, choosing two number one seeds – Florida and Arizona – to round out the Final Four. Louisville and Michigan State are both ranked number four.

“I know these are not imaginative picks, but I think they’re the right ones,” he said.

Picking Michigan State and coach Tom Izzo to win it all is a departure for Obama, who has in the past picked Kansas and North Carolina to win it all. He’s only been right once, when the Tar Heels won the 2009championship.

Well, his record at picking NCAA championship winners is a lot better than his record at picking winning foreign policy strategies.

So what is the point of my blog today? What am I trying to say?

I’m trying to say that if Barack Obama actually wants  to be the President, he should act like a President. He should exude confidence and strength. He should stand for honor and righteousness. He should be a figure admired on the world stage, not laughed at.

He and Michelle act as if they are still in Chicago, socializing with all of the celebrities and the rest of the Hoi Polloi.

When it comes to acting like a leader, Obama acts if he still believes he’s a community organizer… not the President of the United States.

Now, instead of greasing the palms of Chicago Politicians to get crooked judges to issue injunctions against his enemies, Obama believes that he can defeat Putin by issuing sanctions with no intestinal fortitude (or allies) to back them up.

I’ve got some news for ya, Scooter: Wearing Moms Jeans and a girlish bicycle helmet does not exactly strike fear into the hearts of our nation’s enemies. Nor does it command respect.

As a young, Dean’s-office-occupying, Collegiate Radical, Obama thought that he could “change the world”, starting with America. And, unfortunately for all of us who love America, he has certainly given it the old college try. However, he is finding out what young, idealistic Liberals find out when they grow up and land in a position of power: Your enlightened philosophy is useless against a strong-willed barbarian.

So now, Obama’s Achilles Heel has been exposed to Putin, Iran, Syria, and the rest of America’s enemies.  These barbarians have figured out that the Leader of the Free World is nothing but a pop culture junkie, who spouts platitudes while making empty threats, and taking harmless actions.

In other words, President Barack Hussein Obama is an embarrassment to the United States of America.

…and a wuss.

Has the Tonight Show Become a Democratic Propaganda Machine?

February 22, 2014

Jimmy Fallon and Michelle ObamaJimmy Fallon, of Saturday Night Live and those Credit Card Commercials with the baby, officially took over the reins of the Tonight Show last week.

And, one of his first guests was the First Wookie…err…Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama.

Politico.com reports that

The curtain rose this week on a new era of late-night TV — altering the terrain for politicians who frequent the shows and complicating life for Republicans, who have lost their most comfortable seat in front of the camera.

“The whole landscape’s about to change,” Arsenio Hall, the recently reincarnated late-night host, said in an interview. “Jay [Leno] going home is going to change it for a lot of people.”

Jimmy Fallon replaced Leno — who was seen as the one late-night host with a welcome mat out for the GOP — and moved “The Tonight Show” back to New York City after decades in Hollywood. Beyond the location, expect another big departure from Leno: Not nearly as many heavy-hitting political jokes or guests.

Fallon, who is eyed a bit warily by some Republicans, had first lady Michelle Obama on Thursday — they have a chemistry between them — after launching his new show on Monday. He said recently that his show will not be the place to go for in-depth interviews with politicians and candidat

Obama and Fallon’s only foray into politics during her appearance was a pitch about Obamacare’s provision that allows children to stay on their parent’s health insurance until age 26, with a quick quip from Fallon about the problem-plagued HealthCare.gov finally working.

“(The website is) working now. It’s so much better when it’s working,” Fallon said.

As part of the new late-night lineup, Seth Meyers is taking over Fallon’s old spot on “Late Night,” and the former “Saturday Night Live” head writer has said he does plan to focus on politics. In fact, Vice President Joe Biden will be one of his first guests on Monday, when the show debuts. Meyers and his team declined an interview request.

With the 2014 midterms not far off and the 2016 presidential cycle already in motion, a seat on a late-night host’s couch is an important place for politicians who are looking to soften their image, reach a young-ish audience and prove they have a sense of humor like any average Joe.

But there will definitely be less pure politics without Leno, experts said. While Leno and “Late Show” host David Letterman have relied heavily on politics in their monologues and had many politicians on as guests, Fallon turns political only when there’s a story so big it can’t be ignored, said Robert Lichter, director of Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University and the author of the forthcoming book “Politics Is a Joke: How TV Comedians Are Remaking Political Life.”

“[Johnny] Carson initiated political humor on late night, but Leno put it on steroids,” Lichter said. “Leno always told far more political jokes than anyone else. With folks like Fallon and others, you’ve got political humor when something big happens … so, for Fallon, politics is just one of many areas. For Leno, it was a major part of his arsenal.”

Fallon’s slimmed-down diet of politics may not be a bad thing, said Erik Smith, Obama’s senior adviser for advertising and message development during the 2008 and 2012 campaigns. As opposed to what Smith called a “sense of cynicism” toward politics that Leno and Letterman exhibit in their monologues, Fallon’s skits and stunts — like the “slow jam” — bring out a softer side of a candidate and are more likely to go viral.

Brent Bozell and Tim Graham, in their column at newsbusters.org, disagree…

The Obamas have had few more obsequious media allies than NBC’s Jimmy Fallon. Now that he’s taking over the hallowed ground of “The Tonight Show,” Fallon’s proven ability to spread his reach into viral videos on YouTube promises to become even more politically potent.

Fallon’s Obama-friendly sketches and interviews have become immediate “news” grist for the Comcast corps at NBC and MSNBC. The same sensation happens when Fallon is ripping into a Republican.

Just as NBC and MSNBC were tearing Gov. Chris Christie apart over “Bridgegate,” Fallon joined this political crusade by bringing on liberal rock star Bruce Springsteen for a jokey version of the hit “Born to Run.”

Fallon and Springsteen sang clumsy lyrics that Christie was “killing the working man who is stuck in Governor Chris Christie’s Fort Lee, New Jersey traffic jam.” The YouTube video went viral, while the media played it up as another nail in the coffin they were building for Christie’s career.

The NBC press agents are trying to paper over Fallon’s political tilt. A Parade Magazine profile on Feb. 16 oozed that Fallon “persuaded Brad Pitt to yodel, President Obama and Mitt Romney to ‘slow jam the news,’ and Tom Cruise to crack raw eggs on his noggin.” But why pretend?

In 2012, Fallon’s “slow jam” with Obama featured the president trying to sell his allegedly wonderful plans for college loans, and Fallon followed up by uttering in a low voice, “Awww yeah. You should listen to the president. Or as I like to call him, the Preezy of the United Steezy.”

After Obama trotted out campaign attacks against Republicans, accusing them for raising interest rates on students to keep taxes low for billionaires, Fallon added: “Mmm, mmm, mmm. The Barack Ness Monster ain’t buying it.” Singer Tariq Trotter then sang in tribute: “He’s the POTUS with the mostest!”

Fallon ended this spectacle later by stating the ridiculous: “We don’t take sides politically on this show.” It’s worse than that. Obama invited himself. Fallon excitedly described on “Today” afterward how “the White House called us” about doing the skit. Matt Lauer asked: “He booked himself on your show?” Fallon gushed: “The president booked himself.”

Try to imagine a conservative Republican attempting to pull this off.

Indeed. They would not stand a chance.

Being the “old codger” that I am, I remember Johnny Carson very well.  Johnny had a natural, easy-going Interview Style, which allowed him to talk to anyone on his show, from a 7 year old to Movie Stars.

And, while Carson skewered BOTH political parties in his monologues, he never brought up his political affiliation on the show. He felt that if ehe invited politicians on the show, that would turn off his viewers, as they tuned into his show at the end of a long, hard workday, to be entertained, NOT PROSELYTIZED TO.

And, that will ultimately be this latest version of the tonight show’s downfall. If people want to watch shomeone suck up to the Democratic Party, they can tune in to Letterman or Jon Stewart or, if they are really desperate, MSNBC.

Each host of the Tonight Show brought something to the table. Steve Allen both comedy and musical ability. Jack Paar brought urbane sophistication. Johnny Carson brought masterful comedic timing and  Midwestern “Aw, shucks” feel to the show. Jay Leno, was the “Everyman”…the wisecracking guy next door, whom you could find on the weekend with his head stuck under a car hood.  And, Conan O’Brien brought…err…umm…never mind.

So, what will Jimmy Fallon bring?

If he tries to be a younger version of Letterman, he won’t be around long. 

We’ll see.

Until He Comes,

KJ
