Obama, the Never Ending Critic

In each of the countries Obama visited on his last tour, he made sure he undermined Trump. I’ve never seen another President doing this in my life time. Unlike Bush, who graciously stayed out of Obama’s business without one word of criticism, Obama does not plan to follow in Bush’s footsteps.

During his visit to Peru, he stated he will speak up if Trump plans to follow up on his own agenda, one that Obama sees as “dangerous”.

Obama, while speaking in Lima, Peru on the final day of his last trip abroad, spent the majority of his trip answering questions on what a Trump presidency will mean for international allies—including America’s influence globally.

“Obama—concluding the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Lima—acknowledged that he wouldn’t hesitate to play critic in a Trump presidency if “necessary.”

“I want to be respectful of the office and give the President-elect an opportunity to put forward his platform and his arguments without somebody popping off in every instance,” Obama said.

“If there’s specifics that have less to do with some proposal or battle but goes to the core questions about our values and our ideals, and if I think that it’s necessary or helpful for me to defend those ideal then I’ll examine it when it comes.”

“The President also reiterated that while he “can’t guarantee” that Trump won’t pursue some of the positions he’s taken on the campaign trail, the President said reality would “force” Trump to “adjust” how he approaches those issues in office.”

“As an American citizen who cares deeply about our country, if there are issues that have less to do with the specifics of some legislative proposal but go to core questions about our values and our ideals, and if I think that it is necessary or helpful for me to defend those ideals, I’ll examine it when it comes.”

Our ideals! What does Obama really know about our ideals? He has never been about American values or ideals, but his dictatorial agenda forced on us.

Just what does having 96 million people unemployed have anything to do with our ideals?  The American values are working people whose ideals are to rise above their station in life. This was always the way things were until Obama came along.

What does being on welfare and food stamps have to do with our ideals.

What does globalism have to do with our ideals?

The American people voted out their very flawed candidate and wanted their country back to the way it used to be. Lots of patriotism, lots of jobs, the ending of the UN global takeover of our country.

Our country wants to be released from the strangling regulations and rules by bureaucrats taking away our jobs, our businesses and our economic freedom, our energy independence.

Also he includes his “love for our country”. He never did love our country or us. His whole administration was one of being destructive as possible. He did not care about our country, but hated it and us.

Just when we thought we’d be rid of this jackal, he will return and the leftist media will be standing outside his door with their mics stuck in his face to garner his “wisdom”.  He plans to be the co-president of Mr. Trump.

It’s time for him to STFU and get out of our lives. We don’t want you, Barack Hussein Obama. Get the hell out of our way!

Since When Did Experience Automatically Become Considered a Good Thing?

Today I have a guest writer, DavetheRave, offering his opinion.

Please direct all comments and replies to DavetheRave.

hillary-trust

Recent polls (IE. Quinnipiac) show people polled prefer Hillary over Trump on foreign affairs, because “she has experience.” I can’t help but wonder, how was the question(s) phrased?

There’s no debating she has more experience as Secretary of State. However, is it purely experience that is required? Shouldn’t it be how one performed gaining that experience? Is experience gained, while one fails time after time in their performance a good thing?

Here is how I measure Hillary’s experience on foreign policy under her leadership: Honduras and Haiti, fail. Afghanistan, fail. Benghazi, fail. Libya, fail. Egypt, fail. Iraq, fail. Syria, fail. Ukraine (she laid the groundwork for the overthrow of the neutralise government), fail.

Telling the truth about her foreign policy failures, success! She lies every time.

It’s not hard to see simply having experience demonstrates she did a good job. Not even a poor job. Her experience illustrates she is now the worse Secretary of State in the history of our nation. I honestly can’t think of one success she had as Secretary of State.
She promises more of the same, if elected president.

After witnessing how much of our planet she has set ablaze and devastated, it surpasses simple logic that so many people will vote for her and more of the same failure. I’d call that glutton for punishment for which we all would have to pay.

 

Our Internet is Out of Our Hands

by Dennis Michael Lynch
October 1

 

President Obama promised Americans a fundamental transformation of the United States, and boy did he deliver on his promise.

Obama has made it so:
(1) A record number of illegal aliens penetrate our wide open borders and manipulate a dysfunctional visa system,

(2) At public schools throughout the U.S. the boys now urinate in the girls’ bathroom if they identify as a female,

(3) The growth of Islam in America is unstoppable as we now take in more refugees than ever before, and we accept more immigrants into the U.S. from the Middle East than we do from Mexico and Central America combined,

(4) The national debt is so high that the amount of zeros in the number makes it look fake — but boy is it real,

(5) Today, the military is as small as it was in the early 1900’s,

(6) Veterans are killing themselves at record rates,

(7) The war on cops is an epidemic,

(8) America is hooked on heroin,

(9) We’ve reverted back to segregating college campuses,

(10) Obamacare — the law that was designed to give everyone insurance — is putting insurers out of business,

(11) We now negotiate with terrorists and pay them ransom,

(12) We cut nuke deals with Iran.  In other words, we paved the way for our greatest enemy to wipe our greatest ally off the face of the earth,

(13) Christians can go to jail if they don’t bake a cake for a gay couple.

These are 13 transformations in place today all because America felt compelled to vote for a man because of the color of his skin.  But Obama didn’t like the number 13, so he added another change to seal his fate as the worst president in US history.

Obama caps off his presidency by handing over the greatest communication tool ever known to mankind. As of today, Obama can pen to his resume’  #14…. The internet is no longer managed by the greatest country on earth.

Washington (AFP) – The US government on Saturday ended its formal oversight role over the internet, handing over management of the online address system to a global non-profit entity.

Our Internet is gone. A judge appointed by Obama, a hard leftist, denied the 4 States who brought suit.

Now we can all watch to see how many conservative sites we enjoy disappear in time.

The Senate and the House did nothing. Chock it up to globalist traitors Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell for giving Obama what he wanted once again.

Free speech as we knew it is now gone. I just can’t wait until countries such as China, Iran and other bad actors decide what we read or not.

Propaganda will flourish.

 

Dear Never Trumpers

by Doug Giles

DEAR NEVER TRUMPERS: You Don’t Want To Read THIS Post – It Would Be TOO Much For You

Have you SEEN the list of grievances against our nominee? How can ANYONE support a guy with this many strikes against him? Read to the END and find out!

“He’s nothing but a B-List TV personality. He has no business being in politics.”

“He’s been divorced and remarried. He can’t commit to anything.”

“He’s dangerously ignorant about international affairs. The Russian leaders will walk all over him.”

“He has no filter – doesn’t think before he speaks.”

“Until recently, he was a Democrat. He’s not a real Republican. He hasn’t paid his GOP dues.”

“He used to be Pro Choice. Now, suddenly he’s Pro Life?”

“That can’t be his real hair!”

“He’s a loose cannon. No one wants HIS finger on the nuclear button.”

“His opponent has the experience and political savvy to be president. He does not.”

“He’s just not presidential.”

“His temperament disqualifies him from ever being Commander-In-Chief.”

“He’s proven himself to be mentally unstable.”

“The military will never accept him as Commander-In-Chief. He’s not smart enough.”

The GOP doesn’t want him to be the head of the party. He could never reach across the aisle to get anything done.”

“Most Republican voters will just stay home rather than go out and vote for him.”

“He’s almost 70. Much too old to be president.”

“Evangelicals will never support him.”

“He says ‘(Let’s) Make America Great Again’. How dare he say we aren’t still great?!?!”

“His intellect is thinner than spit on a slate rock.”

“90 percent of Republican state chairmen judge him guilty of ‘simplistic approaches,’ with ‘no depth in federal government administration’ and ‘no experience in foreign affairs.’”

“His spontaneity with reporters and voters plays well but also gives him plenty of space to disgorge fantasies and factual errors so prolific and often outrageous that he single-handedly makes the word gaffe a permanent fixture in America’s political vernacular. He confuses Pakistan with Afghanistan. He claimed once that trees contributed 93 percent of the atmosphere’s nitrous oxide…”

“After all his gaffs, he doubles down on them instead of admitting he made a mistake.”

“He’s threatening to upend our treaties and relationships with our allies by demanding that they pay for their own defense!”

“Because of his gross factual errors, he might take rash action and needlessly lead this country into open warfare!”

“He’s racist, xenophobic, and fuels the fires of hatred!”

“You shouldn’t take him seriously. He has a penchant for offering simplistic solutions to hideously complex problems and a stubborn insistence that he is always right in every
argument.”

“The rising turnout of his voters are not loyal Republicans or Democrats and are alienated from both parties because neither takes a sympathetic view toward their issues.”

“He wears the disdain he draws from the GOP elites as a badge of honor. Henry Kissinger’s championing the other GOP candidate and attacking him are actually helping him!”

“The fact that he could be deemed a serious candidate for president is a shame and embarrassment for the country.”

The New Yorker observed that his appeal “has to do not with competence at governing but with the emotion he evokes…

[He] lets people get out their anger and frustration, their feeling of being misunderstood and mishandled by those who have run our government, their impatience with taxes and with the poor and the weak, their impulse to deal with the world’s troublemakers by employing the stratagem of a punch in the nose.”

“His unpopular opponent presided over the current Iranian crisis… and a reeling economy, yet surely the Democrat will prevail over him.”

“Is he Safe? …he shoots from the hip … he’s over his head … What are his solutions?”

“Voters want to follow some authority figure, — a leader who can take charge with authority; return a sense of discipline to our government; and, manifest the willpower needed to get this country back on track.”

Sound familiar? You’ve heard this all about Donald Trump, right?

Try again. Virtually all this was said of Ronald Reagan in 1976 and 1980. Most of it was BY OTHER REPUBLICANS, and Reagan turned out to be one of the greatest presidents of the 20th Century.

Obama Admin. Allocating $4.6 Million for “Emotional Wellness” of Refugees

YOUR tax dollars at work.   You are paying for the “emotional wellness” of these refugees Obama is determined to resettle here.

“Each refugee admitted into the United States from the Middle East costs taxpayers an estimated $64,370 to resettle.”

The Washington Free Beacon reports – The Obama administration plans to spend $4.6 million next year on health promotion and “emotional wellness” for refugees as President Obama plans a 30 percent increase in the number of refugees admitted into the country.

The Department of Health and Human Services issued a grant forecast last month detailing its plans to issue health care grants for refugees on top of government programs that are already available, such as Medicaid.

“The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) invites States to submit applications for Refugee Health Promotion (RHP) discretionary grant funds,” the grant forecast says. “The purpose of the RHP grant is to support health and emotional wellness among refugees. The program is designed to coordinate and promote local health and mental health services and education.”

The agency said the funding would be in addition to Medicaid and programs that provide cash and medical assistance for refugees.

So our tax dollars can never cover enough for these refugees who we, the people, don’t even want coming into our country. The Fraud Resident in the Oval Office decides to hit us over the head with the hammer of paying more for these folks.

And where the hell is Congress on this? Don’t they hold the purse strings? Or is this one of his “slush funds”?

 

Hillary’s Excessive Demands

Are Hillary’s demands excessive?  What do you think?

From Townhall, Daniel Doherty:

Ever since Hillary Clinton asserted that she wasn’t “truly well off” compared to other fabulously rich one-percenters (despite her family’s personal wealth and all evidence to the contrary) she’s had her (ahem) fair share of struggles convincing ordinary Americans she occupies the same world as them. The remark is especially tone-deaf given that she reportedly asks for at least six-figures every time she delivers a paid speech.

The median household income in the United States is roughly $44,000.

But the extent of her speaking fee demands go well beyond mere dollars and cents. As The Las Vegas Review-Journal exclusively reports:

According to a May 31, 2013 email, Clinton’s standard contract usually includes:* Round-trip transportation on a chartered private jet “e.g., a Gulfstream 450 or larger jet,” plus round-trip business class travel for two advance staffers who will arrive up to three days in advance.

* Hotel accommodations selected by Clinton’s staff and including “a presidential suite for Secretary Clinton and up to three (3) adjoining or contiguous single rooms for her travel aides and up to two (2) additional single rooms for the advance staff.”

* A $500 travel stipend to cover out-of-pocket costs for Clinton’s lead travel aide.

* Meals and incidentals for Clinton, her travel aides and advance staff, as well as all phone charges.

* Final approval of all moderators or introducers.

The Review-Journal also notes that her speech at the University of Nevada’s 2012 “Foundation dinner,” in particular, underscores Hillary’s lavish demands and preferences on the speaking circuit:

In fact, the former president spoke at the 2012 UNLV Foundation dinner, taking home a $250,000 fee. His spouse will get $225,000 to speak at the annual dinner. The size of Hillary Clinton’s fee has come under fire from critics who question the large expense in an era when students are hard-pressed to cover tuition and leave school saddled with massive debt.But Clinton’s $225,000 is something of a cut-rate. Documents obtained by the newspaper show that she initially asked for $300,000 and reveal that she insists on controlling every detail of the private event, large and small, to ensure that she will be the center of attention.

“It is agreed that Speaker will be the only person on the stage during her remarks,” according to the May 13 contract the Harry Walker Agency signed for Clinton’s keynote address at the Bellagio.

According to her standard speaking contract, Clinton will remain at the event no longer than 90 minutes; will pose for no more than 50 photos with no more than 100 people; and won’t allow any press coverage or video- or audio-taping of her speech.

A six-figure fee, presidential lodgings, complete control over the logistics of the event, and media censorship were only some of Hillary Clinton’s stipulations when delivering paid remarks at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas two years ago.

Parting question: How will these revelations play with the Democratic base? Will she get a free pass since she reportedly gives all of her earnings to “charity” (i.e. her own foundation), or will she be heavily criticized for hypocrisy, greed, and self-indulgence?

My, my aren’t we the Queen?  Just what we need is another Moochie.  I guess these demands are being made because she and Bill are so broke.  😀

America and Kafka’s Nightmare

Warning:  This article is very grim. If you are faint of heart do not continue.

America Is Plunging Into Kafka’s Nightmare

January 14, 2014 by Brandon Smith

The Eye

There is a certain level of dishonesty in the common study of history. We look back at the tyrannies of the past, the monstrous governments, the devastating wars and the unimaginable crimes, and we wonder how it could have been possible. How could the people of that particular generation let such atrocities come to pass? Why didn’t they do something? Why didn’t they protest? Why didn’t they fight back?

We wonder all of this as we absorb the lists of dates, names and actions in books written by other men who memorized other lists of dates, names and actions. We are taught to study and wonder without ever actually applying the lessons of the past to the developments of today. We are conditioned to apply our own narrow spin on yesterday, instead of placing ourselves in the shoes of our ancestors or recognizing that their struggles remain our struggles. The modern method of viewing history detaches us from history, making it seem distant, alien or surreal.

Often, the only way to grasp the more complete truth of the present is to examine it through the lens of the absurd. Sadly, our Nation, our culture and most of the world around us have become so backward, ugly, feeble and twisted that the only adequate comparison is to the nightmares of surrealists.

Recent legislation, the exposure of classified documents and the openly admitted criminality of political leadership call to mind Franz Kafka’s The Trial.

Kafka was a self-styled socialist back in the days when socialism was thought to be the next revolutionary movement for the downtrodden masses. It was, of course, controlled opposition created by global elitists attempting to exploit the natural rebellious tendencies of the general public within a false paradigm — using the masses to achieve greater power for a select few, while making the people think that they had won. It is ironic that Kafka would write The Trial, one of the greatest condemnations of totalitarian surveillance society, while at the same time supporting the socialist political vehicle that would eventually be used to implement unrelenting bureaucratic despotism.

The Trial is commonly labeled a “surrealist” piece of fiction, but I wonder now if it was actually far more literal than the academics of the past actually gave it credit for. The problem is that most of America, and much of the Western world, has forgotten what it is like to experience true danger and true suffering. We read about it now and watch movies about it like it’s entertainment, but few people have the slightest inkling how to deal with the real thing. We don’t even know how to recognize it. Because of this, Americans tend to pay more attention to fictional representations of tyranny rather than legitimate tyranny taking place right under their noses.

With that sad fact in mind, watch this clip from Orson Welles’ cinematic version of The Trial. See if you recognize your own world in this work of fantasy:

The main character of The Trial, Josef K., finds his apartment invaded by police in the early hours of the morning. Josef responds with anger but also fear, attempting to defend his character without actually understanding the nature of the police visit. The police answer his questions with more accusatory questions, only later warning him that he is being watched and that he is under arrest. The police do not, however, take him immediately into custody; nor do they ever tell him what his crime was. It is implied, in fact, that Josef is not allowed to know what he is being charged with.

This episode in The Trial has been played out in the real world over and over again, from the Soviet Cheka, to Adolf Hitler’s SS and Brownshirts, to Benito Mussolini’s Organization for Vigilance and Repression of Anti-Fascism (OVRA), to the German Stasi, to Mao Zedong’s Central Security Bureau, etc. In the United States, the culture of surveillance and intrusion has (for now) taken a more subtle approach through the use of technology. We do not yet have agents physically rummaging through all our homes and asking for our papers (though we are not far away from this). Rather, we have the National Security Agency, which rummages through our electronic communications while using our own computer cameras and cellphones to watch us, listen to us and track us. All of this, mind you, is done on a massive scale without warrant.

We have the Authorization for Use of Military Force and the National Defense Authorization Act , which gives the President the centralized authority to detain and even kill those Americans designated as “enemy combatants” without trial, without due process and without public oversight.

Our government now uses secret evidence to charge citizens with crimes they are not allowed to discuss with the public on the argument that to do so would “threaten national security.That’s right; the government can arrest you or assassinate you based on evidence they never have to disclose to you, your family, your lawyer or the citizenry.

In the U.S. today, the kind of establishment terror Kafka imagined is indeed a reality. We are not on the verge of a total surveillance state, we are there. It exists. And if we do not accept that this is our social condition, there may be no historians tomorrow to look back on our era and wonder: “Why didn’t they do something? Why didn’t they fight back?”

The revelations brought by Edward Snowden on the NSA and its PRISM mass surveillance program are still only partially understood by the public. Even many self-proclaimed “cypherpunks” and “techno-warriors” don’t really grasp the pervasiveness of the all-seeing NSA eye. Recent documents leaked to German news source Der Spiegel by Snowden reveal an Internet almost completely dominated by the NSA, where even total encryption would be a mere temporary stopgap, according to tech researcher and journalist Jacob Appelbaum. The TOA group, sanctioned by the NSA, has been using technologies for years that startle even the most avid tech experts. To make matters worse, many of the intrusive mechanisms have been implemented — likely with the direct aid of American software and computer companies.

With NSA access to the backbone or core of the Internet, there is no digital privacy anywhere. The cypherpunks lost the war for the Web a long time ago, and they don’t seem to know it yet.

Beyond the undeniable prevalence of government surveillance, what would our American Kafkaesque experience be like without kangaroo courts designed to defend the criminal establishment instead of the victimized population? The latest Federal court decision on the NSA’s methods is that they are perfectly legal and “necessary” to protect Americans from national security threats. If you are a student of Constitutional law, this decision truly boggles the mind.

One of the most powerful moments in The Trial is Josef’s speech to his court of accusers. In this moment, Josef argues with concrete logic and impassioned reason. His position is supported with beautifully crafted merit and truth. But what he does not realize is that the court he is trying to convince does not exist to discover the truth. The court is a sideshow, a piece of elaborate theater. The participants are there to make Josef, and the society at large, feel as though justice has been given a fair chance. Josef’s pleas are met with fake cheers, scripted jeers and even engineered distractions. Finally, he comes to understand that the system’s purpose is to destroy him. Everything else is an illusion.

The Web cannot be made free or private from within; our courts cannot be made fair and just from within; neither political party can be forced to represent the common man from within; and our government cannot be made honest or transparent from within. To play games of activism within the system is to play make-believe within a surrealist nightmare — a piece of “Alice in Wonderland” political quackery. Like the audience at Josef’s trial, the elites simply laugh, or feign applause, while continuing forever with the same corruption and the criminal status quo.

America has long presented itself as the ultimate alternative to the torturous mechanisms of oligarchs; and a long time ago, it was certainly a noble effort. However, our heritage of liberty — the faint memory of it — is all that’s left today. Some people may ask how this could have occurred. How did we become the monster we were supposed to fight against? What happened to the good side and the bad side? Have they become exactly the same?

Those of us who have looked beyond the standardized veil of history know that this is not by accident. Those of us who decipher the surreal know that there is a method to the madness and an ultimate goal. To explain further, I leave you with another piece of fiction, a clip from an episode of the British TV series “The Prisoner.” While not written by Kafka, it was definitely inspired by him. It carries a message I would have liked to have warned him about concerning the disturbing path of duality, the mask with multiple faces that tyranny uses to subvert and enslave:
