Obama: Obama “saved” GM; Treasury Dept: Taxpayers are on the hook for Billions #GM #bailout #Obamafail


“What? You want me out of your car company?….I ain’t givin’ up my car company!”

From Marketwatch:

“Earlier this year, GM presented a plan to repurchase 200 million of the 500 million shares the U.S. holds with the balance being sold via a public offering.”

In other words, GM wants the government out citing ” it hurts the company’s reputation and its ability to attract top talent due to pay restrictions.”

“But officials at the Treasury Department were not interested as selling now would lead to a multibillion dollar loss for the government, the newspaper noted.”

And as is apparent to everyone but the Obama koolaid drinkers–taxpayers have lost BILLIONS on the GM takeover by Obama.

From Freedomworks back in August:

Now Mr. President, what you concealed from the honest people of the Midwest and America.  America had a long established legal system to adjudicate bankruptcies, which debtors and creators rely on to make rational and predictable decisions.  However, you prevented this orderly process to reward the UAW unions.  At the expense of the secure bond holders, you made the UAW a major owner of GM. Bluntly, you used Presidential power and taxpayer’s money to transfer ownership to the unions.

Obama didn’t “save” GM.  He took his share, gave some to the auto unions, and wiped out the secured bond holders….. and is now running it into the ground–on our dime and the earnings of future generations!

@jackmcoldcuts, “I’m Angry”, too, about Obama’s fiascos in #Libya and #Egypt


All day, I’ve been wanting to sum up my thoughts about the anniversary of 9-11 yesterday and the events surrounding it.

News of the terrorism in Libya and Egypt and the death of our ambassador in Libya ( and 3 other Americans) made me angry.  News of Obama’s refusal to meet with Netanyahu added to my anger.

The further frothing at the mouth of the MSM (and proof of MSM collaboration against Romney) because Romney dared to criticize the empty foreign policy of the “Empty Chair” president sent my thoughts and anger in high gear today.

I am disgusted at a President who used military force, without Congressional approval and against the War Powers Act, in order to remove Gaddafi from Libya and to aid in the ouster of Mubarak in Egypt—-both less-than-stellar men, but leaders who, at least, were mostly in sync with America  in the region.  Now Obama’s so-called “Arab Spring” has turned into a nasty, ruthless “Winter”…..and the Obama administration defends the perpetrators of violence (the one’s he allowed into power) by apologizing for American free speech.  Those perpetrators later murdered our ambassador and other Americans.

But I’m not sure anything further I can write will top what Ace of Spades blogger Jack M. (@jackmcoldcuts) expressed.  Without further adieu and in its entirety:

I was watching the “news” accounts of the ongoing Obama-fiasco in Libya and Egypt this morning, and I couldn’t help but come to one headline/twitter friendly conclusion:

“Obama Apologized. American Ambassador Eulogized. First Amendment Marginalized.”

Perhaps I should add a subsidiary clause to the phrase: maybe something like “Media Sanitized” in reference to the way they are scrambling to protect their precious president as he speaks softly and stumblingly slams his little stick in the Muslim Brotherhood’s front door.

But I’m not writing this post to focus on media bias. Others do that, and they do it better than I do. I’m writing this post for a different reason.

I’m angry.

Continue reading

I’m angry at a hypocritical, feckless President who personally spikes the football over Bin Laden’s death while his state department apologizes to Islamists for the exertion of similar First Amendment rights by other Americans who aren’t lucky enough to be anointed god-kings.

I’m angry that a posturing, empty-suit of a president lectures Americans on “denigrating religious views” when he is on record as referring to Americans of faith as “bitter clingers”, and when he has campaign surrogates attacking his opponent for being a Mormon.

I’m angry that our stroke-addled, possibly brain-damaged Vice President describes 9/11 as a “bittersweet” day, as our embassies are burning and Americans are being killed.

I’m angry over the fact that we spent blood and treasure in Obama’s “Lead from Behind Libyan Adventure” only to see our Ambassador murdered and dragged thru the streets by the very people Obama placed in power.

I’m angry that we helped force an ally out in Egypt knowing he’d be replaced  with an Al-Qaeda friendly government that enjoyed watching its minions take the first symbolic opportunity they had to burn our flag and replace it with Al-Qaeda’s.

I’m angry that at a time when Al-Qaeda’s flag flies over the Cairo embassy, the mis-administration prepares to forgive over $1 BILLION in Egyptian debt.

I’m angry that “Pimp With A Limp” gets to talk to the president, while Bibi Netanyahu, whose allied country faces a potential nuclear annihilation, gets to talk to the hand.

I’m angry that the gut instinct of this mis-Administration is to sympathize with and excuse those who hold our fundamental values in contempt as those same people actively seek any pretext they can find to slaughter us where we stand.

I’m angry that the mis-Administration’s paltry response to a region-wide attack on America, which is, incidentally, what this is, is to deploy 50 Marines to Libya and jet-off to a Vegas fundraiser while preparing a top-ten list for Letterman’s show.

I’m angry that the cornerstone freedoms of speech and religious liberty enshrined in our Constitution are so routinely dismissed and mocked by this mis-Administration. 1st Amendment freedom of speech? “Not if it hurts feelings” we are told. Freedom of religion? “Not if it stands between our mis-Administration and giving Sandra Fluke a free abortion should she want one” we are hectored.

But with four Americans dead, our flag burning, and our embassies trashed, you know what really makes me angry?

Our president isn’t.

Think about that fact.

Our president isn’t. He read a bland and bloodless set of prepared remarks for 10 minutes, hid behind Hillary Clinton’s ever-widening skirt, took no questions, and then thought the best thing he could do would be to hit the Vegas strip.

The truth is this: yesterday I read that the President’s team came out swinging against the “2016:Obama’s America” movie.

They didn’t like the way the president was portrayed. So they attacked Dinesh D’souza and, for some reason, Tea Partiers.

Here is the language they used on BarackObama.com:

“It should say enough about D’Souza’s credibility that a movie catering to the Tea Party attacks someone for allegedly ‘anti-colonial’ views,” the entry reads. “His attempts to hide his lies behind pseudo-scholarly presentation and glossy production values cannot withstand basic scrutiny. The facts show that 2016: Obama’s America is nothing more than an insidious attempt to dishonestly smear the President by giving intellectual cover to the worst in subterranean conspiracy theories and false, partisan attacks.”

That’s tougher than anything Obama said in response to the death of an American ambassador, his staff, or the attack on our embassy grounds.

Which I guess suggests a lesson of sorts. Like those who attacked our embassies and killed our personnel, Obama seems to get riled up by movies that make a point of smearing a self-proclaimed false-messianic prophet.

We can do better. We have to do better. I’m doing all I can to vent my anger into something constructive. I hope you’ll join me.

Hobby Lobby latest to sue over abortion mandate #abortionmandate #hobbylobby #Obamacare


Good for Hobby Lobby - one of my FAVORITE stores in the world!

Hobby Lobby is suing over the abortion mandate.

Today, Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a privately held retail chain with more than 500 arts and crafts stores in 41 states, filed a lawsuit in the US District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma, opposing the Health and Human Services “preventive services” mandate, which forces the Christian-owned-and-operated business to provide, without co-pay, the “morning after pill” and “week after pill” in their health insurance plan, or face crippling fines up to $1.3 million dollars per day.

“By being required to make a choice between sacrificing our faith or paying millions of dollars in fines, we essentially must choose which poison pill to swallow,” said David Green, Hobby Lobby CEO and founder. “We simply cannot abandon our religious beliefs to comply with this mandate.”

Come on Obamacare supporters—usually the same people that believe government should be out of the womb, God out of the schools, and Christian symbols shouldn’t be seen by the general public—explain to us why Christians in this country should be forced to support and pay for abortion against their religious values…
Go ahead.  Explain it within the context of religious freedom and the dangerous over-reach of government that our Founding Fathers believed, espoused, and lived by.

It is by God’s grace and provision that Hobby Lobby has endured,” said Green. “Therefore we seek to honor God by operating the company in a manner consistent with Biblical principles. The conflict for me is that our family is being forced to choose between following the laws of the country that we love or maintaining the religious beliefs that have made our business successful and have supported our family and thousands of our employees and their families.”

By God’s grace I pray that Obamacare and its founder, Obama, are overturned and turned out, respectively, in about two months.

Russian warships at DNC? Really? #DNC #Obama


Does no one in the Democratic Party have a grasp on our military and its history?

While retired Adm. John Nathman, a former commander of Fleet Forces Command, honored vets as America’s best, the ships from the Russian Federation Navy were arrayed like sentinels on the big screen above.

This is what you get, I suppose, Admiral, when you choose to support the anti-military party in America.

Waiting on the MSM to cover this major gaffe…..in 3…2…1…

#Obamanomics and a Democrats No-Profit Dream: #GM loses $49,000 on each Volt built #DNC #GMFiction #Obama


If you were tuned into anything other than the Obama News Networks (ie NBC, ABC, CNN, CBS, MSNBC, NPR) last week during the DNC, you might have caught a glimpse of the viral video that outlined the absolute economic ignorance of the creatures we call Democrats.

When DNC attendees were asked in varying ways about profits and “if they should be outlawed”, the answer was a resounding “YES”.

Depressing, yes I know.

So today, news is out via Reuters that GM’s loses as much as $49,000 on each Chevy Volt it builds.

“Nearly two years after the introduction of the path-breaking plug-in hybrid, GM is still losing as much as $49,000 on each Volt it builds, according to estimates provided to Reuters by industry analysts and manufacturing experts.

Aside from the fact that many people go out of their way now to avoid buying GM on principle (i.e. government has taken it over and taxpayers have lost millions in bailing them out), the hassles (battery, costs, plug-ins, etc as outlined in Reuters article) are a turn-off to many who need ease and dependency in their choice of automobiles.

Of course, this disaster of a car falls right in line with Obama’s “green energy at all costs” policies….That policy is summed up as “let’s force/offer tax-payer-funded incentives for this very expensive-to-build car onto people who don’t want it so we can feel good about ourselves.”

“I don’t see how General Motors will ever get its money back on that vehicle,” countered Sandy Munro, president of Michigan-based Munro & Associates, which performs detailed tear-down analyses of vehicles and components for global manufacturers and the U.S. government.

It currently costs GM “at least” $75,000 to build the Volt, including development costs, Munro said. That’s nearly twice the base price of the Volt before a $7,500 federal tax credit provided as part of President Barack Obama’s green energy policy.

And let’s not forget that Obama has highly touted the Volt and has given $50 Billion further taxpayer money in an effort to force us into his idea of cars and the economics of purchasing one….
His idea?  You get a green car, but the taxpayer, customer, and the car  manufacturers will pay through the nose with another type of green to get one.

The Obama administration, which engineered a $50-billion taxpayer rescue (“TAKEOVER”) of GM from bankruptcy in 2009 and has provided more than $5 billion in subsidies for green-car development, praised the Volt as an example of the country’s commitment to building more fuel-efficient cars.

(my correction in red/CAPS)

And let’s not forget that the Obama myth of “saving the auto industry” with unprofitable cars, government takeover/control, and $5 billion subsidies also has led to a $25 billion loss for taxpayers.

The Treasury Department says in a new report the government expects to lose more than $25 billion on the $85 billion auto bailout. That’s 15 percent higher than its previous forecast.

The government still holds 500 million shares of GM stock and needs to sell them for about $53 each to recover its entire $49.5 billion bailout.

Further, this unprofitablility via Obamanomics seems to be what the Democrat party wishes for. (Watch the above video again.)

Don’t ever  believe the lie that Obama saved GM and the auto industry.  He did quite the opposite.  And he wants to do it to other industries.

From the “You didn’t build that” speech:

“I said, I believe in American workers, I believe in this American industry, and now the American auto industry has come roaring back,” he said. “Now I want to do the same thing with manufacturing jobs, not just in the auto industry, but in every industry.

Obama spent $50 billion of our taxpayer dollars to takeover GM — we, as taxpayers,  have lost $25 billion of that.  He plowed another $5 billion into “green energy” for the car industry and now the very car (the Volt) that he touts as the future will never be profitable.

Sounds like a Democrat, unprofitable dream product to me. (but not to constitutional, capitalist Americans.)

We can’t have this anti-capitalist, communistic thinking for another 4 years.

Quotes from President “Made in the USA” #Obamagaffes #Obama


(Source: HotAir.com)

While perusing the internet this morning, I found a great collection of quotes from Obama over the last several years.  It just takes a read through them to understand that this is a President who should never be included in the next edition of “Our Quotable Presidents” or “Great Americans in Their Own Words.”Just this weekend, Obama declared……..

“We can create a million new manufacturing jobs in the next four years, because we’re selling goods around the world stamped with three proud words: Made in the USA.”

At least Obama’s poor math is consistent….He can’t count words and he can’t count how many fewer people are employed now compared to when he took office.

So here is a greatest hits of Barack Hussein Obama quotes:

“I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money.” — Barack Obama

“You got into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” — Barack Obama

“Junkie. Pothead. That’s where I’d been headed: the final, fatal role of the young would-be black man. Except the highs hadn’t been about that, me trying to prove what a down brother I was. Not by then, anyway. I got high for just the opposite effect, something that could push questions of who I was out of my mind, something that could flatten out the landscape of my heart, blur the edges of my memory. I had discovered that it didn’t make any difference whether you smoked reefer in the white classmate’s sparkling new van, or in the dorm room of some brother you’d met down at the gym, or on the beach with a couple of Hawaiian kids who had dropped out of school and now spent most of their time looking for an excuse to brawl. …You might just be bored, or alone. Everybody was welcome into the club of disaffection.” — Barack Obama

As Sen. Hillary Clinton was preparing to campaign here today, Sen. Barack Obama was meeting with voters at a diner and apparently pretty hungry.

“Why can’t I just eat my waffle?” he said, when asked a foreign policy question by a reporter at the Glider Diner. — Barack Obama

“The point I was making was not that Grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn’t. But she is a typical white person…” — Barack Obama

“You know, the truth is that right after 9/11, I had a (flag) pin. Shortly after 9/11, particularly because as we’re talking about the Iraq war, that became a substitute for, I think, true patriotism, which is speaking out on issues that are of importance to our national security, I decided I won’t wear that pin on my chest…” — Barack Obama

“And if that child should ever get the chance to travel the world and someone should ask her where is she from, we believe that she should always be able to hold her head high with pride in her voice when she answers, ‘I am an American.’ That is the course we seek. That is the change we are calling for.” — Barack Obama

That last one there, I think, is disgusting and is quite in sync with the view that Dinesh D’Souza outlines in his blockbuster documentary 2016: Obama’s America. A part of that view, paraphrased, is that ‘America is bad as she is and that America needs to be knocked down a notch or two in the world….then everyone will see the goodness in America.’

You can see more of the worst Presidential quotes in history here from Obama…and some from Biden, too!

“Three Times They Said No to God” #DNC


Jesus answered, “I tell you, Peter, before the rooster crows today, you will deny three times that you know me.”
Luke 22:34

For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to
him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortalman and birds and animals and reptiles…
They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator–who is forever praised. Amen.
Romans 1:21-23;25
