Our Failure-in-Chief, aka Jimmy Carter Redux

June 18, 2010 Leave a comment

“[A] wise and frugal government … shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.” –Thomas Jefferson

The more news I read, the more cynical and angry that I get as the “gushing” (i.e. constant & frequent) stories of scandal and mismanagement by the Obama Administration pass before my eyes each day.   Democrats seem to think that their malfeasance with taxpayer money and their ongoing rush to expand government to create their socialist utopia is being ignored by The People of America, with only a so-called fringe of agitators continuing to remain critical of Obama and his merry band of utopian socialists. 

Can we get any more Orwellian?  I think the answer is “yes” – Obama’s Labor Chief thinks ILLEGALS have a right fair wages… my question is, why do leftists assume illegals have any rights at all in America?

Let me be clear about something.  Obama and the Democrats are GROUP POLITICS THINKERS and PLANNERS.  They dont care about any individual rights or suffering that YOU may be experiencing, so long as they “hope” that their constituent groups and body politick as a whole may or may not gain some benefit from their ideas, policies and choices.

These people bank on good intentions being enough to carry their agenda forward and insulate them from criticism, regardless of any consequences or failures in their ideas, policies and choices.  This level of immaturity and blindness is stunning and should be deeply disturbing to The People who are (and will be) tormented by the Obama Administration and the Democrats through legislation, ongoing unemployment, confiscation of wealth, yet-to-be-experienced inflation, a troubled healthcare system and a myriad of other issues yet to be fully seen and felt.

And, I think the worst is yet to come and when it does, will American’s blame government intervention, utopian goals and the Democrats (including RINO’s Repubs) for what has happened?  I sure hope so, because that is exactly where the blame will rest – on them.

Here are just a few of the latest headlines that indicate how badly Obama and Democrats are managing America’s business and indicate what Americans must suffer with in the years ahead until Obama and his fellow Democrats are removed from power:

The stream of bad news is staggering, folks.  The consequences of this bad news and what it means for this Republic and our national future is also staggering if we do not elect the right people to fix what the Democrats have broken.  Meanwhile, America forgets that FDR’s policies prolonged the Great Depression which brings me to my final point.

I have written on the underlying causes of our current economic malaise – the roots of which started with Jimmy Carter’s “Community Reinvestment Act” and was expanded under Clinton, ignored by the GOP in 2005/06, brushed aside by Dems in 2007 and completely ignored by the press since 2008.  At the root of it all lies the Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac debacle (link 1, link 2, link 3, link 4, link 5, link 6) which no one is talking about these days.  All the while, Barney Frank and Chris Dodd said all was well with Fannie & Freddie, including the Democrats covering up the problems before Barney made a fool of himself (read here) even though they (GOP included) were warned about the issue by Bush since 2001.

The left wants America to blame Bush and the GOP for what has happened.  Certainly the GOP shares blame, but the Democrats bear the largest share of the blame due to their defunct programs, corrupt policies and ongoing stonewalling to fix the underlying problems with Fannie and Freddie.  To wit, I leave you with this quote:

“We’re not satisfied with everything we’ve done (in Congress).  The way to cure that is to give us more authority (power) and more ability (ignore the rule of law & common sense).”  — Rep. Barney Frank (D)

We are in trouble, folks – vote next November and kick the bums out in favor of candidates who will uphold the rule of law and honor our Constitution.

See you on the battlefield.


Bad News Just Keeps Coming

May 3, 2010 Leave a comment

I hate to be a killjoy for my readers, however there are times when there is so much bad news and so many disturbing events that keep pushing their way to the front of the line that I feel compelled to draw attention to these things so that people are aware, and thus informed.

Today is one of those days.

At the top of the list comes more news about Obama’s continued failures on international diplomacy and military concerns – news that is of huge importance since Iran is VERY CLOSE to acquiring nuclear weapons to supplement their ability to deliver them. 

Thus, today Americans were confronted with a belligerant Iran yet again… this time on our own shores… with Ahmadinejad accusing America of nuclear terrorism and perpetrating a littany of so-called “wrongs” during his visit to the United Nations this past weekend.  Apparently American, French and British delegates left the chambers but what confuses me most is, why is this nutjob allowed to even step foot on American soil given his rhetoric, threats and blatant disregard for human rights?

What’s more, Iran was admitted to a womans human rights panel within the UN last week without a peep from America – why?  Isn’t that both interesting and disturbing given Iran’s record on such issues, not to mention the government-inspired tyranny and abuse of its own citizens that we periodically hear about?

And now comes news that our Armed Forces are not allowed to fire on Iranian forces even when they break no-fly zones above and near our forces both on land and at sea, all thanks to Obama and his capricious band of malcontents in the White House.  Given the tensions in the Gulf region and the continued barrage of threats from Iran to America, Israel and allies this is a dangerous game that Obama is playing.

What’s more, the Obama Administration continues to skitter along a path that will allow Iran to actually acquire nuclear weapons simply because Obama is too weak and fearful to use the power that America has to stop it.   Should any nuclear devices go off resulting in the murder innocents in the future, Obama and his troupe of idealogues will be to blame for allowing Iran to get nuclear weapons in the first place… simply by doing nothing about it.

In other news, we see that inflation is now at 2% for last month which I believe is the herald of things to come in the months ahead as the Feds lavish spending & mountainous debt, loose money policy and massive cash outlays to state and local governments and “too big to fail” private entities begins to make an impact.  In short, I believe we can expect Jimmy Carter-level interest rates and a corresponding risk of stagflation or a truly monumental shift downward (depression) in our economy within the next 1-2 years.

Plan – that’s all I can say.

Domestically, we see that the FTC is about to be given greater authority over the internet due to a provision that was slipped into the new Wall Street regulation overhaul now before Congress.   Thanks to Democrats, the FTC will have broad new powers to make rules about the Internet, so my question is, “why do they need this power and why do proponents have to secretly slip the provision into an unrelated bill?”  Mark my words, folks – we will see a raft of offensive rules and power grabs by the FTC in the next 3-18 months, and I dare say that Americans will likely be harmed and offended by them.

Next for the FTC power-grab, the offenses to Americans and our health rises another few notches with the introduction (by Henry Waxman D-CA) into the same financial overhaul bill, language that is sure to harm (and raise costs) American’s ability to acquire nutritional supplements and rely on producers of said supplements to transmit third party information about the benefits of ingredients in their products.  What many Americans dont know is, that the FTC and FDA have a long history of near-hate for natural food and vitamin producers who have to defend themselves against threats, fines and harassment by these agencies.

And let’s not forget ObamaCare and the LATEST NEWS out that it isn’t good, not to mention it’s unconstitutional.

And finally, we hear that Obama attacked FREE SPEECH at a graduation ceremony saying that those who bad-mouth government are bad and that they are “attacking us.”  Apparently, Obama has zero clue about the anti-government proclevities of the American public since the founding of this nation.  Such distrust is in our social fabric – it is an American value whether Obama and Demorats like it or not.

The abuse of federal power and greater limits upon our freedom to choose for ourselves is ever closer, folks.  We are seeing the expansion of the soft tyranny known as the Obama Administration and power-mad Demorats in Congress.  They have ultimate power now and we are seeing just what they do with that power when they have it – they run wild and abuse American’s freedoms in their quest to expand the role of the federal government in our lives.

Just remember, all that power and all the “good intentions” of the Democrats is for your own good – they think so and have told us so… so, that makes it so… so to speak.

Crush the Demorats next November and let’s give Obama a push out the door in 2012 while we’re at it.

See you on the battlefield.
