IMHO — Obama Is NOT The Great Stateman of The 21st Century

With the Cairo speech way back when, Obama was supposed to have fixed in one fell swoop America’s standing in the international community — especially with Muslims in the Middle East.

He was supposed to have undone all of the damage done by the American imperialists who were led by the nefarious George  Bush and Dick Cheney.

Obama would usher in an age of world peace that has never been experienced in the history of mankind. OK, I am being sarcastic here, but do remember that he has been referred to as a god.)

Obama Is God Of All Things

 So, how’s that working out for you?

Hugo Chavez has just recently referred to Obama as a clown. Chavez also added this bit of advice for the clow…err, I mean president —

“Focus on governing your country, which you’ve turned into a disaster,” Chávez said, according to The Guardian.

Ahmadinejad referred to Obama as an “inexperienced amateur.” Obama’s response to Iran’s attempt to develop nuclear weapons was to request that the UN impose more sanctions on Iran.

(Wonder how well that worked?)

Also, on my way to and from work here in DC, I have seen an advertisement on the side of a bus imploring Obama to “protect Camp Ashraf.” Obama’s inaction may implicate himself as a “war criminal” if he does nothing to prevent the genocide of 3,400 Iranian dissidents.

In early 2004, US armed forces took over security of the camp and gave personal assurances to each and every person living there, designating them as protected persons under the fourth Geneva Convention.  

Obama has to take some sort of stand on this issue, but I guess they don’t cover leadership skills in “community organizing” school.

Now, we have Syrians pining for the days of Bush’s “cowboy diplomacy.”

I think the sign says it all!

IMHO – Obama Makes Bush Look Like An Amateur

Candidate Obama said the following about Guantanamo Bay while running for the presidency:

I intend to close Guantanamo, and I will follow through on that. I have said repeatedly that America doesn’t torture. And I’m gonna make sure that we don’t torture. Those are part and parcel of an effort to regain America’s moral stature in the world.

And for those that don’t like the printed version, here is the video clip from the 60 Minutes interview

This is what Senator Obama, and later Candidate Obama, said about the indefinite detention of detainees at Guantanamo Bay:

From Salon.com

“The Court’s decision is a rejection of the Bush Administration’s attempt to create a legal black hole at Guantanamo – yet another failed policy supported by John McCain. This is an important step toward reestablishing our credibility as a nation committed to the rule of law, and rejecting a false choice between fighting terrorism and respecting habeas corpus.”

In a speech on the Senate floor, Obama said –

“…a perfectly innocent individual could be held and could not rebut the Government’s case and has no way of proving his innocence…But what is avoidable is refusing to ever allow our legal system to correct these mistakes… restricting somebody’s right to challenge their imprisonment indefinitely is not going to make us safer. In fact, recent evidence shows it is probably making us less safe…”

Clearly Senator Obama, and later Candidate Obama, made it abundantly clear that the indefinite detention of detainees at Guantanamo Bay without the due process of a trial is wrong on all grounds – legal, ethical, and moral. He even goes as far as to say that it works against us in our war on terror.

Now, let’s compare that to what has just happened recently…

The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) has been sent to Obama who has said that he will sign it into law. Now, pay attention, this is the part of the law that should frighten all Americans –

From Business Insider

“…allowing the U.S. military to arrest and hold anyone it deems a terrorist, even on American soil.”

But wait, there’s an even more terrifying part –

“The minor adjustments to the wording now give the President power to issue a waiver of the military detention requirement and allow the White House to use its own judgment in putting the controls into place.”

Obama now has the power to decide who can and cannot be held indefinitely without trial including AMERICANS!! The same politician who railed against it when it was only Muslim terrorists is now allowing Americans to be held without trial by being the President to sign the bill into law.

Where is the liberal outrage? Where are the progressives demanding Obama to be tried for war crimes? Why haven’t the Occupiers camped out on the White House law?

  • From The Huffington Post – You will find nothing about indefinite detention – much less the fact that it will include Americans.
  • From Politicususa.com – You will find that the focus of the blame for the law is on the Congress – even though Obama has the power to veto it and Obama has the sole discretion of who is and who is not a terrorist. It even goes as far to laud Obama for his many successes in the war against terrorism.
  • From Raw Story – They make it seem like that all U.S. citizens who are deemed to be terrorist suspects are now exempt from indefinite detention. (They don’t even mention that it is only Obama who has the right to waive that requirement.)
  • From MotherJones.com – They are making the claim that even the military detention of non-citizens is optional – saying the “Underwear Bomber” could go to trial without passing through military custody. (What planet are they living on?)

So, there you have it folks!! According to liberal rhetoric when Bush was President, Obama should now be tried for war crimes because he now has the power to decide who can and cannot be held indefinitely.

But liberals don’t want you to know that Obama would be the one who “enshrined indefinite detention without trial in U.S. law.”

IMHO — Only A Liberal Would Think This Makes Sense…

I was surfing the web this morning and came across this “proposal” on Fox News.

(Slight tangent here — for the rabid liberal who thinks anything on Fox News is an outright lie, feel free to look at this from a local Connecticut CBS affiliate or this from the New Haven Independent.)

Now, back to the topic at hand. From the Fox News article:

New Haven Mayor John DeStefano, a Democrat, said on Tuesday that illegal immigrants pay taxes indirectly through rent and send their children to local schools — and therefore should be able to vote. The proposal would also lead to a more engaged community, he said.

Only a liberal would think that this makes sense. An illegal immigrant should have the right to vote because pays taxes through their rent and sends their children to local schools.

Where do we begin?

Let’s start with the fact that they are ILLEGAL immigrants. That alone makes them a criminal! They broke American immigration law to come here in the first place. Now, this liberal Democrat wants to reward criminal behavior.

From The United Way of ConnecticutPublic Act 01-11 states:

A person who has been confined to a federal or state correctional institution, correctional facility, or community residence can have his/her voting rights restored by submitting written proof to a city/town Registrar of Voters or other admitting official of their discharge from confinement and, if applicable, parole. Any fines that were charged in conjunction with the felony conviction must also be paid. The Department of Correction (which can supply a release letter) and the Office of Adult Probation are responsible for notifying people of their rights to apply for voter registration. Release letters can be obtained from a regional office of the Court Support Services Division. Also, anyone who has been convicted of a felony after January 1, 2002 and has been sentenced to probation, not sentenced to confinement in an institution, is able to register to vote. He/She will not lose their right to vote if they are already registered.

And this is how we treat American criminals. They have to jump through multiple hoops to have their voting rights RESTORED. Translation — when you are convicted of a crime in Connecticut, you lose your right to vote for as long as you are incarcerated.

But only to a liberal does treating criminal aliens better than Americans — much less American criminals — make sense. Only to a liberal does proposing that American law NOT apply to criminal aliens make sense.

Because if Connecticut treated illegal aliens like the criminals they are and locked them up like they would American criminals (since they seem unwilling to deport them), then they would not be eligible to vote according to the same law.

A person who is currently confined to a correctional institution or facility or to a community residence is not eligible to have his/her voting rights restored. Also, anyone who is on parole or who has been convicted of election law violations is not eligible to register to vote.

So, in English, since the illegal immigrants are criminals — and could be convicted of a criminal offense in absentia — they are not eligible to vote under Connecticut law.

But only to a liberal does that NOT make sense!

IMHO — Stop Lying About Christians And Gays

OK, one of the typical things that happens at work is you will at some point end up surfing the net, going on Facebook, etc. to kill some time while waiting for the next required action.

I went on Facebook to see a post from a friend who liked to an article that can be found here. I clicked on it and read the post by one liberal/progressive whack job quoting another liberal whack job who was presenting information as fact.

Now, time for a bit of a rant…

Why do liberals and progressives have to always resort to lying when it comes to these things?!!

From the original liberal whack job on The Huffington Post —

The Title: Another Teen Bullied to Death, Another Reason for a New Christianity

OK, the tragedy of a teen committing suicide because of bullying goes without saying, but this liberal whack job places the blame for this squarely on Christianity. Albeit to say, the author is saying the teen committed suicide because of Christianity.

Let the lies continue…

But that does not alter the fact that the root cause of tragedies like the Jacob Rogers story is that strain of Christianity that continues to insist that homosexuality is an evil affront to God.

Once again, he is lying when he says that Christianity is the reason this boy committed suicide. And he summarizes his lunacy by saying:

If Christians would actually read the Bible…we would arrive at a popular Christianity that is not, as so much of our Christianity is today, a pure affront to anyone with half a conscience.

The problem is this lunatic’s premise is based entirely on a lie! From his article:

You can read more (about the boy’s suicide) via MSNBC.

The problem is that liberals don’t really want to think for themselves. They want to hear the standard lie that Christianity is evil and wants all gays to die. They would have never bothered to actually read the MSNBC article where it never mentions the word Christianity or Christian once. No mention of religion either.

See the truth screws with the liberal lie — and that’s something liberals will not stand for.

Then if you take the time to read through the comments, you will see not one liberal lemming actually took the time to read the MSNBC article.

A couple of doozies from the liberal nut gallery —

(Referring to Jesus) — A middle-age­d man whose constant companions were 12 other guys and a possible hooker-gon­e-straight­. Sound gay to you? 😉

Remember, they insist that you are able to spell G.E.D. before they award it.

The second comment was a reply to someone else — so much for the party of intellectual superiority, huh?

Another teen bullied to death, another reason for NO christiani­ty

So, obviously, this poster is anti-Christian despite the fact that this article is nothing more than a lie.

Now, if we go the first link from the liberal whack job who quoted the Huffington Post liberal whack job, you will find more doozies from the liberal lemmings who never bother to read the MSNBC article for themselves.

Hell! there will probably be quite a FEW THAT WILL SAY THE KID DESERVED IT !

This commenter is clearly referring to Christians.

Some people must be so happy to find out that their god hates all the same people they do…

As you see, this liberal lemming thinks only Christianity hates gays.

(Wonder how homosexuality is treated in a Muslim country, community, or family? But I digress…)

If they took the time to read and think critically, everything about this is a lie. Let’s start with the way the author tagged his article.

Christianity And GLBT ,   Jesus Christ ,   Bullying ,   Christianity ,   Gay Teen Suicide , Christianity And LGBT , Gay Christians , Anti-Gay Bullying , Religion And Sexuality , Religion News , School Bullying , Religion News

The fact that it is not a news article does not matter to the liberal lemming crowd. This author is lying to his readers by implying that this is honest “reporting” of an event. There is no reporting. This is some liberal whack job with an axe to grind stating his deluded opinion which is clearly based on a lie.

Christianity had no part in this boy’s tragic death — but liberals will continue to lie about Christians and gays. They can not prove it. They will resort to typical Alinsky tactics and try to ridicule you into silence if you dare challenge them.

So, I dare some liberal to prove this boy’s death was based on Christianity. Show me documented proof that the kids who bullied this kid did so in the name of Christianity.

Oh, wait!! You can’t! So, do the world a favor and STOP LYING about Christians and gays!!

===============

Something else I thought that I would share — look at the last paragraph.

I don’t know how to say this without sounding self-serving…You can buy “UNFAIR” as Kindle book; you can buy it as a Nookbook; if you don’t have a Kindle, you can download onto any PC, Mac or device a free Kindle reading app, and read it that way. You can wait for the paper version to come out about 10 days from now. I don’t care…

So, now we get to the one part of this whole load of BS that is the truth. The guy wants you to buy his book.

IMHO — 12 Reasons People Vote Democrat

1. I voted Democrat because I believe oil companies’ profits of
4% on a gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn’t.

2. I voted Democrat because I believe the government will do a
better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

3. I voted Democrat because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as
nobody is offended by it.

4. I voted Democrat because I’m way too irresponsible to own a
gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from
murderers and thieves. Even though, in Chicago last year, for example, guns were banned, but they still had over 700 murders…mostly by guns.

5. I voted Democrat because I believe that people who can’t tell
us if it will rain on Friday can tell us that the polar ice caps will
melt away in ten years if I don’t start driving a Prius.

6. I voted Democrat because I’m not concerned about millions of
babies being aborted so long as we keep all death row inmates alive.

7. I voted Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right
to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits.

8. I voted Democrat because I believe that business should not
be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and
give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the Democrats
see fit.

9. I voted Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to
rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit some fringe kooks who
would never get their agendas past the voters.

10. I voted Democrat because I think that it’s better to pay
billions to people who hate us for their oil, but not drill our own
because it might upset some endangered beetle or gopher.

11. I voted Democrat because while we live in the greatest, most
wonderful country in the world, I was promised “HOPE AND CHANGE”.

12. I voted Democrat because my head is so firmly planted up my
ass, it’s unlikely that I’ll ever have another point of view.

IHMO – A non-medical diagnosis of OWS protestors

In an earlier post, I mentioned that the OWS movement put out their Declaration of New York City online for the entire world to read. Well, guess what, I read it. (And using their childish logic, I should sue them for the three minutes of my life I wasted doing so.)

Their “symptoms” are as follows:

  1. They have taken our houses through an illegal foreclosure process, despite not having the original mortgage.
  2. They have taken bailouts from taxpayers with impunity, and continue to give Executives exorbitant bonuses.
  3. They have perpetuated inequality and discrimination in the workplace based on age, the color of one’s skin, sex, gender identity and sexual orientation.
  4. They have poisoned the food supply through negligence, and undermined the farming system through monopolization.
  5. They have profited off of the torture, confinement, and cruel treatment of countless animals, and actively hide these practices.
  6. They have continuously sought to strip employees of the right to negotiate for better pay and safer working conditions.
  7. They have held students hostage with tens of thousands of dollars of debt on education, which is itself a human right.
  8. They have consistently outsourced labor and used that outsourcing as leverage to cut workers’ healthcare and pay.
  9. They have influenced the courts to achieve the same rights as people, with none of the culpability or responsibility.
  10. They have spent millions of dollars on legal teams that look for ways to get them out of contracts in regards to health insurance.
  11. They have sold our privacy as a commodity.
  12. They have used the military and police force to prevent freedom of the press.
  13. They have deliberately declined to recall faulty products endangering lives in pursuit of profit.
  14. They determine economic policy, despite the catastrophic failures their policies have produced and continue to produce.
  15. They have donated large sums of money to politicians, who are responsible for regulating them.
  16. They continue to block alternate forms of energy to keep us dependent on oil.
  17. They continue to block generic forms of medicine that could save people’s lives or provide relief in order to protect investments that have already turned a substantial profit.
  18. They have purposely covered up oil spills, accidents, faulty bookkeeping, and inactive ingredients in pursuit of profit.
  19. They purposefully keep people misinformed and fearful through their control of the media.
  20. They have accepted private contracts to murder prisoners even when presented with serious doubts about their guilt.
  21. They have perpetuated colonialism at home and abroad.
  22. They have participated in the torture and murder of innocent civilians overseas.
  23. They continue to create weapons of mass destruction in order to receive government contracts.*

Now, read between the lines. What are the common issues you see?

  • Healthcare (see #6 – implied; 8, 10, and 17)
  • Higher pay (see #6 and 8)
  • Green energy/Environmentalism (see #16 and 18)
  • Outsourcing/Eliminating Jobs (see #6 and 8)
  • Free education (see #7)
  • Inequality/Discrimination (see #3)
  • Excessive military use/intervention (see #12, 20, and 23)
  • Implementing a police state (see #12 and 19)
  • Murder/Torture of civilians/prisoners (see #20 and 22)
  • Economic Catastrophes/Bailouts (see #1 ,2, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 18, 19)
  • Protected Status of Businesses (see #2, 9, 10, 14, 15)

So, exactly which side of the political spectrum does this represent? Despite their claims to the contrary, this is an extreme left-leaning agenda, which was highlighted in the poll put out by the Democratic pollster, Doug Schoen.

Now, the question is what is the point? What do they hope to accomplish?

Well, basically nothing since all of these ideas have been implemented (a large number have been done or expanded on by Obama).

The “prescription” for each “symptom” —

It is my honest, non-medical, opinion, the OWS protestors are nothing more than attention-whores looking for their next “john.”

Obama and The Neville Chamberlain Effect

When Obama was elected, he made a speech in Cairo that was tantamount to the second coming of Christ if you were to listen to the progressives and liberals who fawn over everything he does (see anything by MSNBC).

By reaching out the Muslim world, Obama was supposed to have fixed everything that Bush got wrong when dealing with Muslims.

However, Obama being the great statesman of the 21st Century; if not of all time – (what else would you expect from “god?”) – has worked quite hard at failing miserably in fixing the U.S.’s relations with the Muslim world. At best, one can say he has implemented a policy of appeasement to the hard-line Muslims around the world.

Egypt – Hosni Mubarak is the ex-president of Egypt who Obama pressured into eventually resigning his post because the will of the Egyptian people must be respected

Egypt, under Mubarak, while not our strongest ally, has been much more receptive to working with us than say…Iran. Now, Obama has allowed groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood (I feel the need to mention that the site was blocked on my computer because it was labeled Muslim extremism) to throw out Mubarak, destabilize a country, which will eventually be replaced with hard-line Muslims (Remember the 1979 overthrow of the Shah in Iran – same story; different country.)

Iran – Obama said nothing while thousands of people protested against last summer. It led to the famous confrontation with Major Garrett where he asked, “What took so long?”  Now, it seems that Iran has continued its nuclear program despite Obama’s protestations to the contrary.

Libya – Protestors rose up against the rule of Qadaffi. Obama, for some reason, decided that the U.S. would not play an active role in stopping the brutal repression of the Libyan people (even though Mubarak had to step down). Then after being upstaged by France, Obama took the “calculated risk” of air strikes to support the rebels who have been depicted as being associated with al Qaeda.

So, for those keeping score, Obama has sided with either hard-line Muslims in Egypt and potential terrorists in Libya. So, is his appeasement of Muslims making things better for the U.S. or worse?

Then, in Iran, when faced with a self-avowed hard-line Muslim, Obama offers soft statements “condemning” Iran’s suppression of protest. It was a clear case of saber rattling and Ahmadinejad called him on it by referring to Obama as an “…inexperienced and amateur politician.”

Now, for the one sane country in the region, Obama stated that Israel must return to its 1967 borders. That would be the way to a lasting peace with the Muslims.

Once again, Obama is attempting to appease the Muslims.

Fortunately, Netanyahu realizes that appeasement will not work. He has declared that an indefensible peace will not last. That Israel will negotiate, but not with terrorists and not with hard-liners who want to see the destruction of the Jewish state.

Netanyahu realizes that Obama is just like Neville Chamberlain — except that it would be Israel who would have to pay for Obama’s weakness.
