Jeff Jacoby Gets It

Posted: April 18, 2009 by lamayor in Communism, Cuba, Dems, Obama, Politics

This man writes for the Boston Globe. He is quite possibly the only one there with a working brain cell.  Well, other than the sportswriters, because I hate the Yankees.

All people should live in freedom. No one has the right to “run a nation” like a prison camp. Those are core American truths – truths most Democrats once understood in their bones. Do they still?

Read his excellent column here.

UPDATE: IT WASN’T A BOW!

The Obamans are now wanting us to believe that the President did not bow to the Saudi king.  Quite the contrary they say . . . .

“It wasn’t a bow. He grasped his hand with two hands, and he’s taller than King Abdullah.”

So, our President, who apparently towers over most world leaders, simply wanted to get a closer look at the diminutive King.

BRITAIN G20 PALACE

This is appalling.  A President of the United States, freely elected by the People, bowing to an unelected monarch of a country that raised 15 of the 19 9/11 attackers, no less?!  Can you imagine Reagan doing this?  Hell, I can’t even imagine Clinton doing this.

God help us.

Obama Really Hates the Brits

Posted: April 1, 2009 by lamayor in Obama, The Presidency
obama-and-the-queen

"Mr. President, I would've preferred a Zune."

First, the President sends back  the bust of Winston Churchill.  Then he fumbled Gordon Brown’s visit to the White House.  The PM didn’t get a state dinner, a fawning press conference, and wasn’t even allowed to play on the killer new White House swing set.  To add insult to injury, Obama acted like a harried shopper on Christmas Eve and gave Brown a DVD box set.  Snakes on a Plane wasn’t even included, but hopefully the PM has Netflix.

So much for our vaunted “special relationship”.

Fast forward to today — April Fool’s Day no less.  President Obama meets with Queen Elizabeth II and he gives her . . . . an iPod!  I’m sure the Queen is not easy to shop for — I mean, you can’t just give her a Target gift card and tell her to buy herself something nice.  You have to put some thought into it.  Something that honors not just her but the British people.

Now, let’s not be too quick to judge.  An iPod may not be all that bad.  It is, after all, a premier innovation from one of this country’s hippest and exciting entrpreneurial companies.  It’s not the traditional monarchical gift but functional, and I’m sure she likes to get her groove on like anybody else.  That is, until she checks the playlist.

President and First Lady Obama gave Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II a video iPod with inscription, songs uploaded and accessories, plus a rare musical songbook signed by Richard Rodgers.

Uploaded onto the iPod:

  • Photos from the Queen’s 2007 White House State Visit
  • Photos from the Queen’s 2007 Jamestown, Va., Visit
  • Photos from the Queen’s 2007 Richmond, Va., Visit
  • Video from the Queen’s 1957 Jamestown Visit
  • Video from the Queen’s 2007 Jamestown Visit
  • Video from the Queen’s 2007 Richmond Visit
  • Photos from President Obama’s Inauguration
  • Audio of then-state senator Obama’s speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, and
  • Audio of President Obama 2009 Inauguration Address

Britain’s Press Association reports that the Royal couple gave the Obamas “a silver-framed, signed photograph of themselves.”

I can see it now: The Queen in her perfectly clipped English shouting, “Yes, we can!”  Like I said, he really hates the Brits.

The President was gracious, I’m sure, when presented with the framed photograph of the Queen and Prince Philip.  However, something tells me he was wondering when she would finally give him the gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

While we’re on the subject — the lovely SI swimsuit model, Marisa Miller, wins the award for Best Use of an iPod.  Nicely done.

… I refer to him as the guy that I would be totally hot for if I was gay.  

Which I am NOT!  (NTTAWWT)  But if I was…

Okay, wayyy too much information, I know.

Barack’s Teleprompter

Priceless!

cowardly-obama

Yes.  I am furiously clicking together the heels of my ruby red slippers (okay… green, badly worn, Crocs – but you get the point.)  We need to figure someway out of this parallel, bizzaro world that we find ourselves in and desperate times require desperate measures.

The heretofore unfathomable, unconscionable and unbelievable directive coming down from on high that has my panties all up in a wad is here.  To steal a page from F*** You Penguin,  Ho. Lee. SHIT!

Wambdi Wicasa, a Benedictine Father who co-founded The Blue Cloud Abbey in Marvin, South Dakota wrote:

A CONTRACT is an agreement made in suspicion. The parties do not trust each other, and they set “limits” to their own responsibility. A COVENANT is an agreement made in trust. The parties love each other and put no limits on their own responsibility.

Historically, the agreement with our service men and women has been one made in trust.  We have loved the persons who have boldly stood up and answered the call to defend our nation and consequently we have put no limits on our responsibility to taking care of them when they are unfortunate enough to need it.   The very notion that the men and women who have been injured on the field of battle, defending this country and our liberties are now not worthy of the finest, cost-free medical care that we can provide, is not only counterintuitive to our COVENANT,  it is frankly immoral and should be intollerable.  However, instead of taking the junior level bureacrat that came up with this horrific little gem out back and beating the ever living crap out of them for even giving voice to such an idea, the White House responded, “Hey! Now that sounds like an idea we can get behind!”

Oh, did I forget to mention that this is all in the works as a means to save a whopping $500M a year?  “What are we going to do with the money?” you ask.  Excellent question!  The bottom line is we need the cash.  Even though is seems like a small amount in relation to things like the $170 BILLLLLLLION we have already chucked into the raging bonfire formerly known as AIG, we have pressing needs that need to be met.  In fact, that $500M will knock out over half of the $900M that we pledged to the Palestinian Authority to rebuild the West Bank after they received the ass-beating that was due to them for lobbing rockets into Jerusalem.

Wait a second!  Couldn’t the money we are taking from our veterans go to support Hamas, the reigning terrorist group party in control of the West Bank?  NO!  Definitely not:

…The official added that the aid would not go to Hamas. The U.S. recognizes the West Bank-based government of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and has no formal contacts with the Islamic militant group Hamas, which runs a separate Palestinian administration in the Gaza Strip.  Money often is funneled into Gaza through international organizations such as the United Nations, or through Abbas’ government, which deposits it directly into Gazans’ bank accounts.

Whew! That was close!

…OHHHHHHHHHHHH CRAP!

On Tuesday, Abbas said a new national unity government that includes rival Hamas must be in place and internationally recognized as part of managing humanitarian aid for Gaza and elsewhere.  Reconciliation talks are scheduled to begin in Egypt on Wednesday between Hamas and Abbas’ Fatah movement.

Ho. Lee. Shit., indeed.

Excellent stuff on this abounds around the Web, however one that is particularly striking is here.  Thanks AoSHQ.

<UPDATE>

John How are you holding up (Senators Kerry and Obama)? Stewart thinks this is a crock of shit too:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

<UPDATE, UPDATE>

Kabuki Backpedal Theater…

Scene opens on a flustered Robert Gibbs in the White House Press Briefing Room in mid response: “…Uh, did we say, ‘…make them pay for their benefits?’  What we meant to say was, ‘make them ‘gay’ for their benefits!’  I mean they are going to love their FREE benefits soooo much, they will be gay for them.  Shame on you for misunderstanding us.”

Spendulus!

alien-obama Submit foolish humans! SUBMIT!

Barack Hussein Obama is not a misguided yet well intentioned left-leaning moderate.  He is not a pragmatic, well-spoken, amateur statesman who is finding his way.  He is a deceitful, conniving, ill-intentioned fear-monger who is doing everything he can to establish a permanent ideological, economic and cultural lurch to the left… There I said it.  Wow!  That feels good.  

He’s not taking his time either… In less than 60 days, we have witnessed the largest ingress of government control into the free markets in modern history.  By the words relayed to us from the mighty tele-prompter we have been informed that we are ending the War on Terror as we know it because it is high-time we Americans learn how bad we make the rest of the world feel when we mistreat the poor, misunderstood, freedom fighters in Gitmo whom we have unjustly hung by their scrotums (Is the sarcasm thick enough?  If not, please let me know.  I delight in lathering it on.)  Through the power of Executive Order, we have seen the return of pro-death policies such as the lifting of the Mexico City policy and the return of Embryonic Stem-Cell Research.  (With the latter, our Mighty Instiller of Fear has once again opened up the door to human cloning… only for “research purposes” mind you (yeah, right!) Eugenics, here we come!   Wouldn’t Margaret Sanger be proud? Maybe we can get rid of that pesky self-reliance, liberty seeking gene?)  

Through all of this we have been told to sit back and not question what the man and his cronies are up to because he has a mandate to lead and we must give him time and opportunity to do so.  When other duly elected leaders such as the Minority leadership in Congress questioned him on the wisdom of the Spendulus Package, they were told to sit down and shut up.  When noted liberal and respected financial guru, Jim Cramer (who is a vocal advocate of most of Obama’s policies) questioned the sanity of Obama’s choices to raise taxes on business and investment while the stock market is crumbling, he was cast to the street and ridiculed by Bobby Gibbs (wasn’t he a Bee-Gee?) as a nut-job that has a “small audience”.  All the while, his Urukai are brazenly boasting that they are leveraging this economic crisis to their advantage to ramrod their predetermined agenda up our collective asses. (Link to an EXCELLENT op.ed. by Jonah here. )

Given the vast amount of deceit, hypocrisy, acrimony and pure bullshit that is spewing forth from the administration on a daily basis, we think that this is the perfect time to launch the newest page at The Disloyal Opposition: 

littleredbook

“The Little Red Book of Chairman Obama”.  

In homage to Chairman Mao and LBJ, two of Obama’s apparent mentors, TLRB will be our little cozy place on the Web where we can document Dear Leader’s pearls of wisdom (read – steaming piles of crap) for all of the world to see.  We look forward to your contributions to TLRB, however there will be strict guidelines.  We want the page to be an authoritative account of Obama and his administration in THEIR OWN WORDS, especially when their words can be juxtaposed and contrasted with reality (e.g. Obama’s promise to eliminate earmarks line by line in budgets while being transparent in all things as opposed to him signing the pork laden budget bill yesterday behind closed doors.) 

For now, if you would like to suggest content for TLRB, please leave comments on TLRB‘s page (link / tab above).  Soon we will have an email setup for submissions.  If we approve the submission (i.e. We can validate its authenticity and it provides value in drawing attention to Obama’s corruption, hypocrisy and lies) we will post it to TLRB‘s page.  

Let the fun begin.
