Leftists Lament “Vacation-Shaming” President Obama

The leftist elite in charge of the media want you to know, it’s wrong and probably racist to criticize Obama for vacationing lavishly in the midst of multiple crises at home and abroad.

The Huffington Post laments that, poor Obama, those lavish parties with rich trust-fund Democrats are the hardest work of all.

For those who vacation not on isolated ranches but in hot spots of the rich and powerful, even everyday socializing can be turned into work.

Obama previously spent time on Martha’s Vineyard hobnobbing with important donors. This year, he will headline a fundraiser two days after he begins his annual period of rest.

Let’s run a quick check and see if the MFM were concerned about “Vacation-Shaming” from… I don’t know… say… 2001-2008?

Nope.

President and Mrs. Obama enjoyed a lovely jazz concert last night as part of their lovely, multi-million dollar getaway to Martha’s Vineyard.

Also, Missouri’s Democrat Governor is really, really mad at the police for releasing facts to the public that contradict the MFM’s “Innocent schoolboy who was just walking down the street when he was gunned down by a racist cop” narrative. e.g. the video of Michael Brown robbing a convenience store minutes before he was shot. The autopsy report that shows Michael Brown was coming at the officer that shot him, not running away.  Such facts need to be kept from the public, lest they invade the “National Conversation Lecture About Race” Leftists are so eager to have give.

Obama Welcomes Brutal Homophobic Dictators to the White House

“Judge me by the people with whom I surround myself” – Barack Hussein Obama, 2008.

Your proposal is accepted.

The red carpet was rolled out for Equatorial Guinea’s Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, who shot or jailed virtually all his political opponents, Gambia’s Yahya Jammeh, who threatened to ‘cut off the head’ of any homosexuals in the country and for Cameroon’s Paul Biya, who has the dubious honor of ranking 19th on author David Wallechinsky’s 2006 list of the world’s 20 worst living dictators.

And so far, not a peep from the HRC or GLAAD.

President Miffed That His Courtesans Forgot His Birthday

Southern border over-run. ISIS burning through the Middle East. Israel under rocket attack. Massive Ebola outbreak in East Africa.

What’s on Obama’s mind?

That the giggling schoolgirls of the mainstream press forgot his birthday.

Let me answer your question, Vern. He was elected because 51% of the electorate decided that Obamaphones, free contraceptives, and nice words about gay marriage were more important than simple competence.

Malaysian airliner (possibly) shot down over the Ukrainian War Zone today. 295 people were on board, including 80 children and 23 Americans. Also, Israel has commenced ground operations against Hamas in Gaza.

The Preezy’s response: Go to a hamburger place for a photo op, crack a joke about Joe Biden, and then, much as he did after four Americans were murdered at Benghazi, the Preezy is off to party once again.

It’s as if he decided, “This President game is no fun; I don’t wanna play any more.”

The only guy responding to current events in a more juvenile way than the Preezy is the prank caller who got on MSDNC claiming #MH17 was brought down by “a blast of wind from Howard Stern’s ass.”

Come to think of it, did anyone see what the President was doing when that call came in?

Yoo Hoo, Eric Holder… Check Out This Racist Attack on the President

After the Black Panthers intimidated white voters on Election Day 2008, Eric Holder’s Justice Department wasn’t interested. When they were running guns to Mexican Drug Gangs? A phony scandal, not worth the DoJ’s time. IRS intimidating and harassing opponents of the President? Holder appoints a big Obama donor to lead the “investigation.”

But let some dude in Nebraska create a July 4th approach that offends our thin-skinned president, and Eric Holder jumps right on the case.

The U.S. Department of Justice is investigating a float that appeared at the annual Fourth of July parade in the small town of Norfolk, Neb. because the float featured a blue flatbed truck carrying a zombie-looking mannequin in overalls on the door of an outhouse labeled “OBAMA PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARY.” The Justice Department sent a member of its Community Relations Service team to Norfolk.

So, let’s post this “offensive” picture and see if we can get the DoJ sicced on us, why not.

One of the places being considered for the Barack Obama Presidential Library and Temple Complex is an abandoned industrial site that formerly hosted steel mills.

Symbolically, building a shrine to Obama atop a site that once employed tens of thousands of hard working Americans seems very fitting.

Indeed.

The Last Refuge of the SCOAMF

You know the cliche of the tinhorn dictator, exhorting his citizenry to support his failing regime in the name of “patriotism” and “unity?” That’s kind of where we are now.

“We could do so much more if we just rallied around an economic patriotism, a sense that our job is to get things done as one nation and as one people,” [Obama said] during a Tuesday speech in Washington.

The phrase “economic patriotism” evokes the 1930s emphasis on central economic planning by big-government supporters in Europe and the United States, such as President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

This  patriotism talk is pretty rich coming from a guy who refused to wear an American flag pin or hold his hand on his heart during the Pledge of Allegiance while campaigning in 2008. But I guess it sets it up so that those who question his economic policies can be denounced by the regime as unpatriotic.

This talk also seems at odds with his assertion that the economy is doing great.

By every economic measure, we are better off now than we were when I took office. You wouldn’t know it, but we are,” the president said Friday.

Technically it’s true. The Obamas and their cronies are better off now, by every economic measure, than they were when he took office. It’s the rest of the country that’s screwed, blued, and tattooed.

Obama Whines

So, earlier this week, adolescent president Obama was sarcastically and snarkily deriding global warming skeptics as people who don’t believe in Almighty Science.

Then, he’s whining that Republicans are mean because they won’t rubber stamp his policies, like that nice, cooperative Venezuelan legislature.

“They don’t do anything, except block me and call me names,” Obama said.

Also, people write him mean letters, that say mean things to him, because they’re mean.

“You’re an idiot and the worst president ever,” says President Obama, describing some of the critical letters he gets.

I don’t recall George W Bush… or any other president… whining about what grown-up people would call “stuff that comes with the job.”

I wonder if he feels like that mean old Supreme Court is picking on him too. What with those unanimous rulings against his abuses of power.

Obama reminds me of a character in a movie I saw once or twice.

Are Women and Gheys Stupid Enough to Fall For Obama’s Shameless Pandering?

Posted by V the K at 8:15 am - June 26, 2014.

The economy basically collapsed in the first quarter. The Middle East is burning, and World War III is brewing. The southern border has collapsed and illegal immigrants are flooding in. The IRS has proven to be a hotbed of political corruption. And the list of other Obama-caused disasters could fill the whole rest of this page. But instead of addressing any of it, the President is playing the “King who walks among the Commoners” game in hopes of raising his approval rating.

The president will travel to Minneapolis on Thursday and spend a day “in the shoes” of a mystery woman identified only as Rebekah. The woman, whose last name has yet to be revealed, recently wrote a letter to Mr. Obama, inspiring the president to visit her and learn more about her daily struggles.

And instead of trying to avert the takeover of the Middle East by a group that was so violent even Al Qaeda spurned them, John Kerry’s State Department is yammering on-and-on about LGBT rights  (while simultaneously pandering to the Islamist regimes that are the most abusive of gay rights).

So, I ask the question in the threadline: Do women and gheys really say, “This presidency has been a disaster on every front, but I like the way Obama panders to my sex/sexual orientation, so he’s got my vote.”

And then I remember the 2012 election.

Obama Uses the Metro-Hipster Word for Soccer

While in Brussels, the capital of Bureaucratic Eurotopia, President Obama repeatedly referred to the sport real Americans know as “Soccer” as “football.” Andrew Stiles explains what this minor gaffe reveals about the president.

Hearing someone (any American, that is) refer to soccer as “football” is one of the most definitive signs that you should never be friends with that person. This is especially true if they immediately clarify themselves to let you know they were actually talking about “soccer.” If they begin to explain why they say “football” instead of soccer (see previous paragraph), it is advisable to extricate yourself from the conversation/relationship immediately.

This gaffe (if we can call it that) is just the latest example of Obama’s deeply held desire to join the global cultural elite.

In soccer, players are encouraged to over-react and wildly exaggerate the slightest injury in order to convince officials to penalize the other team. If that ain’t the central tactic of modern liberalism, I don’t what is.

Reagan’s “Fiascos” vs Obama’s “Phony Scandals”

Posted by V the K at 7:31 am - June 6, 2014.
Filed under: Obama Watch,Ronald Reagan

Yesterday marked the tenth anniversary of the passing of the last great American President, Ronald Wilson Reagan. Today marks the 70th annitversary of the D-Day invasion and the 30th Anniversary of President Reagan’s speech at the 40th Commemoration of D-Day, a speech remarkable (in this age of the Cult of Obama) for Reagan’s complete lack of self-reference; a speech not about the president, but about history, philosophy, and the men who actually fought the battle.

It was about 29 years ago that the MFM were hyping what was, in the Reagan Era, a monstrous scandal. At the invitation of the German Chancellor, Helmut Kohl. the president and Mrs. Reagan laid a wreath in a cemetery where German soldiers were buried. In 1985, this was a HUGE scandal.

White House aides have acknowledged that the Bitburg visit is probably the biggest fiasco of Mr. Reagan’s Presidency. The visit, which was made at the insistence of Mr. Kohl, was overwhelmingly opposed by both houses of Congress, Jewish organizations, veterans’ groups and others. [New York Times, 06 May 1985]

Ponder that. Here was a “scandal” in which no one was killed, no one’s rights were violated, no taxpayer dollars were wasted, and the White House never lied about it.

Yet, when the Obama Administration runs thousands of “assault rifles” to Mexican drug gangs, resulting in hundreds of deaths — that’s a “phony scandal.”

When President Obama sits by and does nothing while Americans are under attack in Banghazi, then goes to a party the next day in Las Vegas, then lies about the whole affair being about a YouTube video — that’s a “phony scandal.”

When the Obama Administration uses the IRS to harass and intimidate opponents of their administration’s policies — that’s a “phony scandal.”

And, most recently, the Obama Administration releases five of the world’s most dangerous terrorists without consulting Congress — that is also dismissed as a phony scandal “whipped up in Washington” because Republicans are racists who can’t stand the idea that a black man is president.

Quite remarkable how times have changed, isn’t it?

From Obama’s Perspective, the Terrorists-for-Bergdahl Trade Was Worth It

Posted by V the K at 7:45 am - June 4, 2014.

Ace’s theory is that Obama rushed through the Bergdahl-for-Terrorists swap because he wanted to get the VA scandal out of the news. And he was successful to the degree that even though even more horrific details of the VA scandal have emerged this week, but they’ve been buried beneath the Bergdahl controversy. From the Obama/Alisnkyite worldview, the VA is bad scandal… pure incompetence and corruption for which Obama can plead no defense. The Bergdahl scandal, on the other hand, was something that could be spun as Obama versus the Right; and Obama’s Media sycophants have dutifully hewn to that narrative.

I am not sure, though, that Obama’s handlers foresaw the whole “Bergdahl was a deserter, possibly a collaborator, and good men died trying to find him after he betrayed his country” angle.

If Bergdahl gets away from his handlers and starts yammering about “America the Great Satan,” “the blood of Afghan children” and “Allahu Akbar,” …. that’s going to make things sort of… awkward… for the Obama Cult, don’tcha think?

Also, the Taliban have released a propaganda video of the Bergdahl handover. Obama has claimed he had to to rush through the prisoner exchange because of concerns about Bergdahl’s health. How healthy does he look in the video?

And if Obama can’t keep track of what’s going on in his own Veteran’s Administration, how is he going to keep an eye on five terrorists running loose in Qatar?

Taliban Celebrate Their Latest Victory

The Taliban must be beside themselves in awe of their amazing luck in getting Barack Hussein Obama as President of the United States. His de facto abandonment of Afghanistan means that a return to power by the Taliban is pretty much inevitable. And then on Friday, the Taliban was delighted to have five members of their top leadership released by President Obama in exchange for an American POW widely believed to be a deserter.

 In rare public statement, Taliban supreme leader Mullah Mohammad Omar hailed the five-for-one trade and thanked Qatar for mediating the deal.

“I extend my heartfelt congratulations to the entire Afghan Muslim nation, all the mujahideen and to the families and relatives of the prisoners for this big victory,” the world’s No. 1 terrorist said.

The president who won’t give an inch to Republicans seems very comfortable giving away entire countries to Mohammedan terrorists, and releasing Islamist War Criminals from Guantanamo.

Bergdahl’s pappy gave a pretty interesting speech at news that his son had been exchanged for five of the Taliban’s most brutal terrorists.

At the end of brief event, the soldier’s father, Bob Bergdahl, recited the most frequent phrase in the Koran — “Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Rahim” —which means “In the name of Allah, most Gracious, most Compassionate.”

After Bergdahl finished his statement and his praise for Allah, Obama hugged him.

The Taliban echoed Bergdahl, saying the trade happened “due to the benevolence of Allah Almighty and the sacrifices of the heroic and courageous Mujahidin of the Islamic Emirate.”

Imagine if FDR had traded Josef Mengele, Adolph Eichmann, Heinrich Himmler, Josef Goebbels, and Ernst Kaltenbrunner to the Nazis in exchange for one American deserter; and during the announcement of the release, the deserter’s father had yelled “Heil, Hitler!” That’s pretty much what happened here.

[Comparisons to the German National Socialist Workers Party are usually way over-the-top, but considering the goals and methods of the Taliban Islamists, they may actually fit in this case. Agree or Disagree?]

Who Elected Michelle Obama School Lunch Czar?

One of Michelle Obama’s policy initiatives as FLOTUS has been to enforce national school lunch standards that comply with the current nutritional fads of the leftist aristocracy; because public schools must… must … be directed what to feed children from Washington DC; otherwise those ignorant yahoos out in flyover countries would probably be serving kids lunches consisting of Twinkies and cigarette butts.

Don’t you understand… only bureaucrats employed by the Federal Government … under the direction of a lawyer elected to nothing and with no background in nutrition … can decide what kids should eat! It is a vital prerogative of National Government, you guys!

Like any top-down, socialistic, centralized Federal Government program, the results have been costly and have made things worse for everybody involved.

Republicans in Congress – who tend to have more faith than liberals when it comes to trusting people in the Heartland to manage their own lives – have proposed letting schools opt out of the Michelle Obama Food Dictates. But the First Lady is digging in. No matter how horrible the results, nothing the Obamas force on the country may be undone. (See also, Obamacare). The Obamas know what’s best for everyone, don’t you understand?

Leftists defend the horrible program, and claim that those who oppose do so because… well, guess why.

“She [Mrs. Obama] also, perhaps unwittingly, brought herself face-to-scowling-face with the clique of Americans who not only hate her husband (and by extension her) but who think “liberty” means that they must be able to eat and drink anything they damn well please.”

Freedom. Horrible, horrible freedom is something the left just cannot abide. Someone, somewhere might make a choice a leftist disagrees with.

Update: Jonah Goldberg suggests the school lunch dust-up is a squirrel to distract attention from the contracting economy.

Is it Cynical to Think Obama Isn’t Really Mad About the VA Scandal?

Posted by V the K at 5:56 pm - May 21, 2014.
Filed under: Obama Watch,Political Scandals

Old and Busted: #BringBackOurGirls

New Hotness: #MadAsHell

Madder than hell” and “nobody is madder than me” are the Obama Regime’s latest attempt to reduce a serious issue to a catchy hashtag; in this case, a sort of verbal hashtag to let everyone know the president is really “engaged” on the scandal at the VA.

To Obama and his handlers, the VA scandal isn’t that veterans died while waiting for treatment and bureaucrats covered it up with phony waiting lists.  The scandal is that someone is making Obama look bad. Fixing the problems at the VA doesn’t matter; the goal is to manage public perception so that the scandal doesn’t harm his presidency.

So, get those low-information voters thinking, “Wow, he must really be mad as hell about this. I’m kind of mad, too. He can relate to people like me. What a swell president.”

Is he really angry? Hard to say. Will he really do anything to fix the actual problem and hold those responsible accountable? If history is any guide, probably not.

Obama Administration Wants Complete “Biosurveillance” of Every Citizen’s Health Records

Posted by V the K at 2:46 pm - May 20, 2014.
Filed under: Obama Watch,Where's the Scrutiny?

The People Who Brought You Obamacare and the IRS Scandal are now working on a plan to put every American’s health records under bureaucratic surveillance.

The federal government is piecing together a sweeping national “biosurveillance” system that will give bureaucrats near real-time access to Americans’ private medical information in the name of national security, according to Twila Brase, a public health nurse and co-founder of the Citizens Council for Health Freedom.

The Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response is currently seeking public comment on a 52-page draft of the proposed “National Health Security Strategy 2015-2018” (NHSS).

“Health situational awareness includes biosurveillance and other health and non-health inputs (e.g., lab/diagnostics, health service utilization, active intelligence, and supply chain information), as well as systems and processes for effective communication among responders and critical health resource monitoring and allocation,” the draft states.

But as long as this isn’t “telling me what I can do in my own bedroom,” liberals won’t care.
