The time is here. This is the defining moment of this Congress and these leaders. Fully seventy percent of the American people do not want an increase in the debt limit.
MaoBama has all the little Marxists scattering throughout the beltway, desperately attempting to change the narrative. Increasingly exposed before America and the world as the feckless, incompetent idealogue he is, Barack Hussein Obama has painted himself and his Marxists into a corner.
The most recent Gallup and Rasmussen polls both show any generic Republican defeating Obama in the 2012 presidential race by five to eight points, and counting. Increasing numbers of disaffected voters identifying themselves as Democrats are leaving the fold, along with increasing numbers of other ‘safe’ ObaMao constituents such as the so-called ‘security moms’, who flocked to his Plastic Banana Good Time Rock an’ Roll image (thanks, Rush), so carefully crafted to deceive unwary Americans.
MaoBama is in deep water, and his Marxist followers know it. Every DeMarxist stunt in their really worn playbook has been pulled out with entirely predictable frequency every time the Anointed One has stubbed his toe. In fact, they’ve dragged these straw ponies out (smelling strongly of dead fish) so many times that virtually no one except the statists of the Lame Stream Media and the extreme leftist radicals even pay attention to it anymore. read more »
It’s really too bad. All it would have taken was one Republican leader to step up and throw this whole mess back in Barack Hussein Obama’s face, where it belonged in the first place. Just one leader with some testosterone. Instead, we get the ‘lets make a deal’ crew all over again.
We know that Congress is being bombarded by deluges of angry patriots, voicing their displeasure with John Boehner and Mitch McConnell. Yesterday, the Annoyed One stormed out of a meeting with the Republican leadership, telling them ‘not to call his bluff’… which, of course, is exactly what they should do.
Good gravy, you’d think they’d have figured it out by now. It’s sort of like this. Where goeth the Tea Party Patriots, so goeth the nation. I don’t think that that’s much of an exaggeration either. They would never have attained the majority in the House without what we did to put them there.
Therein, as they say, lies the rub. No matter what sort of cockamamie sell-out scheme these two timid creatures come up with, there are at least one hundred Representatives who have stated unequivocally that they will not vote for any debt increase under any circumstances.
Would somebody please tell me why anyone would want to give the Marxists of Barack Obama’s regime one more dime to pee away, pumping up unions and union jobs, on more bureaucrats and regulation, and more poison and venom to be pumped into the economy? read more »
Just had that feeling… I wrote about it yesterday… I’ve learned to trust my inner genie. The Senate Republicans have attempted to usurp the more than 70% of the American people and the Republican dominated House, whose stubborn refusal to cave to the pressure of the Republican establishment and do another sell-out compromise with the statists of the Obama regime has resulted in Mitch McConnell’s so called last ditch ‘backup plan’.
Its brilliance lies in its simplistic stupidity… Let Obama set his own debt ceiling. Absolute genius. That’s like giving a junkie the deed to an opium factory. Mitch’s RINO reasoning goeth thusly… If we let Obama raise his own debt limit, all the little people out there will see what a baad man Obama really is and will flock to the squishy Republican ‘moderation’ zone.
I like what Erick Erickson of Redstate called it… ‘the Pontius Pilate Pass the Buck Act of 2011?. That pretty well sums it up for me, too. I knew John Boehner was involved here as well, with his comment ‘We should have a backup plan’. Yeah, John… the backup plan is to say no!
In the meantime, while these two are bleating about ‘backup this and backup that’, ‘Barack the Destroyer’ is out there lying through his eyeteeth, doing his best to panic and stampede the nation’s seniors, saying that he didn’t know if there would be money in the coffers for Social Security and disability checks. That’s a lie in and of itself. Checks to Social Security and disability recipients are not, and never were, in danger. Neither are payments to the military. read more »
Well… the Republican leadership is. Leading, I mean. At least, at present. Boehner has stuck to our guns and told Obama to chew an old sock… No tax increases.
Okay, but don’t fault me for feeling a bit cautious and, truth be known, skeptical as well. I have seen the Republicans with strong hands, only to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory too many times to get giddy about this crew, in any case. John Boehner is not exactly the lion of the right, no matter how much we want him to be.
I think of Boehner and I think of back door deal-making… and the establishment ‘don’t rock the boat’ and ‘we know better than you do’ attitude that so many of us have come to detest. One of the reasons the Tea Party and Citizen Patriot movements came into being to start with.
I think perhaps Eric Cantor is a bit closer to the ‘rebellious’ freshman class. Those 71 principled patriots unexpectedly resisted the blandishments of the party hacks from both sides, and not a few threats from various sources, to become a force of their own in the 112th Congress.
But keep in mind, Eric is himself a product of the establishment, though his performance in these critical times thus far has been exemplary. I’ve heard him described as “A young man in a hurry”. Fine. As long as he tows the conservative banner with him. read more »
Actually, there’s a strain of Chicken Little there too…’The sky is falling, the sky is falling’. It’s the left’s Rocky Horror Show, complete with a gallery of freaks that would make the Rocky cast jealous. It’s the full press of all the Marxists in the government to terrify the American people and stampede the Congressional Republicans into agreeing to raise the debt limit.
Timothy Geithner is a classic example of the incompatibility of the leftist ‘econo-ideologue’ and the American capitalist system. His public advocation of Keynesian economic principles has shown everyone with the wits to see that this man, former head of the New York Fed, little understands what actually drives the economic engine which is America.
The debt is impossibly high and the Fed has pumped billions upon billions of absolutely worthless dollars (meaning borrowed) into a small selected sector of the economy, meaning of course the banks, who instead of having to pay for their collusion in the sub-prime mortgage disasters, were rewarded by the government, who had mandated the sale of sub-prime instruments by the investment banks in the first place. Very few of these guys had their hands clean. Geithner was instrumental in seeing to it that these ‘friends of Obama’ were taken care of. It’s the largest political payoff and money laundering scheme in history. read more »
I’ve been wondering if that paragon of White House fable fabrication may be on lysergic acid… obviously slipped into his cornflakes by a stealth Tea Party type bent on destroying the Wrong House narrative.
The spin just won’t fly any more. We keep hearing the misadministration’s grandiose statements, just chock full of loaded and misleading terminology. No matter how many times they bleat their Marxist diatribe, no matter how often they disguise their true intent with the language of obfuscation… nothing but nothing will put lipstick on this pig.
Mr Plouffe has announced, “People will not be voting based on the unemployment figures in 2012?. Excuse me while I say, “What?” What universe spawned people like Plouffe and the legion of Obama apologists? Wait! That must be the answer. It’s an alien invasion (another one) and they’ve taken over the administration… lock, stock and vacation schedule.
Eight million jobs lost since the Anointed One assumed his throne. I heard an outrageous statement by some brain-damaged hack that new layoffs had virtually come to a halt. This dude hasn’t been out to California lately, has he? We’re still shedding jobs and businesses at a frightening rate. He threw that desperate thread out there as a ‘comforting indicator’ of the ‘recovery’. Excuse me? I should do an entire article on that alone… great title opportunity, too… “The Recovery That Barack Built”. read more »
It’s a long way from 1776 and the momentous decision made by courageous and determined men to put aside the oppressive yoke of olde worlde monarchic dynasty and create a fledgling nation consecrated in free men’s blood.
The 56 signatories to the Declaration of Independence were fully well aware that their lives were definitely on the line. The British were not known for leniency, and a charge of high treason against the person of King George the Third was a quick trip to a hanging or worse. Five of the signatories of the Declaration of Independence were tortured to death by the British.
Both British regulars and colonial loyalist militias were accused of atrocities against the colonists, which only served to enrage the Americans even farther. The point is that every single person associated with the revolution was under the threat of death. This wasn’t some high flown political theory… this was right now in real time.
There was no one to help them… they were on their own. By a fortuitous accident of history, the French King saw an opportunity to stick his thumb in King George’s eye later in the war. The influx of men and material enabled the colonialists to ultimately triumph.
Today, we have much the same situation with Barack Hussein Obama and his gang of Marxists. This may be the new American revolution… we’re in a fight to the finish with an entire government and every single person who chooses to identify as a DeMarxist. We’re not simply setting out to win an election, though no one will deny that this is an election we cannot lose. read more »
That it was another brutal work week can be testified to by the absence of articles on my part. It’s a statement of the times were are living through that just having all of our crews working counts as a huge success. We’ve slashed our rates to the bone and are taking a much lower profit margin (whoops, there’s the left’s mantra… evil profit) just to get the work in to keep our people busy.
I know one contractor who told me that he had taken several jobs virtually at cost, just to keep his people employed. We consoled each other, noting that our respective doors remained open and that there are many companies who are no longer around at all.
This obviously has nothing at all to do with Chris Wallace and his unpardonable treatment of GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann. I’ve never much cared for Chris Wallace for a number of reasons, some of which I’ll address in this article.
I have an abiding love for real, factual and substantiated news reporting by historically grounded, unbiased reporters and commentators. I used to think that Mr Wallace was at least somewhat fair and unbiased. That illusion was dispelled when, at the tail end of an exclusive interview with Michele Bachmann, he played one of journalism’s cheapest and most tawdry stunts… he posited the totally unwarranted and obnoxious question, “Are you a flake?” read more »
For those of you who are fortunate enough to live in a state wherein sanity yet abides, count your blessings. The downward spiral of California predates this and several other recessionary periods. It goes all the way back to our present Governor Moonbeam’s father, the late Governor Edmund G.’Pat’ Brown… liberal Democrat, of course.
The state’s sob sisters managed to virtually empty the state’s mental hospitals, utilizing Assembly Bill 691. This bill was signed into effect by Governor Brown, though Governor Ronald Reagan was to take the rap for it. The bill’s original purpose was, as all liberally conceived schemes are, written and signed with all of the greatest of good intentions.
Initially, AB 691 was to remove the some 13,500 patients suffering from ‘mental retardation’ and place them in group home settings. Unfortunately, some people who probably would have best functioned in an institutional setting were also released. As time went on, many other patients suffering from various mental disorders were released as well. It proved impossible to control these folks in the communities and many can be found in homeless encampments… or on the streets.
The liberal march to the sixties and the communist-inspired revolutions in our colleges turned the society on its ear, as Vietnam played out to its tragic conclusion, with cowardly US politicians literally snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. read more »
Our young Marxist/Maoist El Presidente has sold out this country, and our entire military. His communist minions have been working tirelessly to weaken this nation’s ability to defend itself. Not just from the legion of the damned, which comprises the current crop of the world’s heavyweight bad guys. We all know who they are and that someday we will have to confront some of them, possibly sooner rather than later.
Mr ObaMao has alienated many of our friends and allies as he pranced about the globe genuflecting before tyrants and dictators, all the while bleating his delusional nostra culpa.
Our borders and ports of entry are virtually undefended… intentionally. We have people flooding across our borders, almost at will. We know for a fact that thousands of middle eastern types have smuggled themselves up through South and Central America, through Mexico, and into the United States where they reside right now.
There are jihadist cells throughout our country, and many are being given aid and shelter by radicalized Mosques across the country. Most of these Mosques have been financed by Saudi Arabian or other radical Islamist so-called ‘charities’. We don’t have to go overseas to find them. They’re right here. They are infiltrating our schools and our city and state governments. They have penetrated to the highest levels of our government and are influencing policy in favor of more Islamic acceptance. read more »
