As I read through news stories the past several weeks, even just days, it seems there is a common theme to a lot of news and political stories: the left-wing agenda seems to be crashing down around itself.
Don’t get me wrong….the America apologists, statists, socialists, and global warming maniacs among us will not be raising the white flag any time soon. But the more they double-down on their agenda, it seems, the more reality is telling a very different story than theirs.
A key indicator that voters are fed up with the antics of the last 2 1/2 years? How about the GOP defeat in New York City District 9 in Tuesday’s special election. The HUGE win by the GOP marks the first time a Republican has held that seat since 1923.
In the largely Jewish district in New York, it is believed that the election was referendum on Obama’s policies on Israel, the building of a mosque at Ground Zero, and local political issues like the handling of the 9-11 anniversary. Some also believe it was a partial referendum on New York’s same-sex “marriage” law.
When it comes to things like the building of a certain mosque, the 10-year anniversary of the attacks on 9-11 and Israel, “for every action” there has come “an equal yet opposite reaction” and the first responders have again risen from lower Manhattan…….
(on the mosque)…An August CNN/Opinion Research Poll showed 68 percent of all Americans opposed the idea. It is hallowed ground, a sacred wound……As Larry Hart of Examiner.com put it; “There are 3,000 families backed up by millions of New Yorkers backed up by hundreds of millions of Americans that are saying ‘no, you can’t build it here.'”…..Still, in spite of overwhelming public outrage for what is considered a blatantly intentional insult, David Weprin – as did Barack Obama – sided with the imam.
(on 9/11)….Weprin suffered the reflexive voter slap for Democrat Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s salting snub in not inviting New York’s first responders to the official ten-year anniversary ceremony. Still, while it was ultimately the mayor’s decision to exclude the men and women who are still seen by most of us as heroes, the president did not object. Just as American’s will “never forget” the horror of 9-11 they will remember Obama’s silence on this sensitive matter – as well as his support of the mosque – in November 2012.
(on Israel)…Who can forget the day when Barack Obama stood before cameras and the world and advised Israel to reconfigure its border to their 1967 lines in compliance with Palestinian demands? …Ed Koch feels quite differently. In fact – according to the New York Post – the Jewish former Democrat Mayor and Holocaust survivor endorsed Bob Turner with the express purpose of sending a message to Obama that would clarify the severity of the destruction. ….. Obviously, the majority of those who showed up at the polls on Tuesday got the memo.
More crash and burn? Take the news today that a Nobel Laureate physicist is resigning his physics society post due to global warming. No, he doesn’t believe the earth will burn up in two weeks and he just wants to spend those two weeks enjoying himself….but quite the opposite:
Dr. Ivar Giaever, a former professor with Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and the 1973 winner of the Nobel Prize in physics, abruptly announced his resignation Tuesday, Sept. 13, from the premier physics society in disgust over its officially stated policy that “global warming is occurring.”
Giaever was cooled to the statement on warming theory by a line claiming that “the evidence is incontrovertible.”
“In the APS it is ok to discuss whether the mass of the proton changes over time and how a multi-universe behaves, but the evidence of global warming is incontrovertible?” he wrote in an email to Kate Kirby, executive officer of the physics society.
“The claim … is that the temperature has changed from ~288.0 to ~288.8 degree Kelvin in about 150 years, which (if true) means to me is that the temperature has been amazingly stable, and both human health and happiness have definitely improved in this ‘warming’ period,” his email message said.
Even more to the point and proof that Al Gore’s maniacal rages and Obama’s “green jobs” are not moving the public to their “incontrovertible” positions:
Public perception of climate change has steadily fallen since late 2009. A Rasmussen Reports public opinion poll from August noted that 57 percent of adults believe there is significant disagreement within the scientific community on global warming, up five points from late 2009.
The same study showed that 69 percent of those polled believe it’s at least somewhat likely that some scientists have falsified research data in order to support their own theories and beliefs. Just 6 percent felt confident enough to report that such falsification was “not at all likely.”
And speaking of “green jobs”….it seems Obama’s BIG effort for green jobs creation has been nothing but an Obama campaign-crony-socialist-stimulus crock of potentially illegal and shady activity!
In February, the administration renegotiated with Solyndra’s billionaire investor- remember the one who was also a big contributor to the Obama campaign?- as the company was failing. That deal allowed billionaire George Kaiser’s foundation to jump ahead of the American taxpayers for all but $150 million of the government’s $527 million loan in any company bankruptcy.
Oh, and it’s a transaction that also happens to be illegal. Although Democrats are floating the idea that the government has the authority to make the taxpayers take a back seat to Kaiser in a bankruptcy, sources close to the investigating committee say that a plain reading of the statute never allows taxpayers to go to the back of the line under any circumstances.
In other words, under the law, the government always has the obligation to protect taxpayer money in any case, including a bankruptcy. It’s a novel concept for this administration, but it happens to be the law.
…….(from Bloomberg) When the Solyndra loan was restructured in February, OMB found in a preliminary analysis that liquidating, rather than renegotiating, would give the U.S. “greater recovery” of its investment, the committee said in the report. The company sought bankruptcy protection six months later.
Why then would the administration allow a billionaire to jump ahead of taxpayers as the company spun into bankruptcy?
Is the leftist agenda caving even further?
Yes. Speaking of bankruptcy and overall poor economic and employment performance….just soak in these headlines/articles for further proof that “Obamanomics” is a HUGE failure. He needs to go in 2012.
By the Numbers … Obama’s Historic Record of Failure (ie Fannie/Freddie, GM, Cash for Clunkers, US Debt Downgrade, historic debt, historic spending….)
Obama’s current policies seem to resemble an avalanche….a large, ever-increasing wave of corruption, failure, and arrogance rolling us all downhill…..all thanks to ‘ol Mr. Greek Columns and his “hope and change”.
Obama’s loss of support and accompanying critics?…well…it couldn’t happen to a nicer
Speaking of critics….. do you know what Obama’s response is to his critics? AttackWatch.com.
The Obama campaign is launching a new website to handle misinformation against President Obama,” reports the Hill. “In an email, Obama’s reelection campaign manager, Jim Messina, announced the formation of AttackWatch.com“:
“Forming the first line of defense against a barrage of misinformation won’t be easy,” Messina wrote in a fundraising email to campaign supporters. “Our success will depend on a team of researchers and writers to stay on the lookout for false claims about the President and his record, bring you the facts, and hold our opposition accountable.”
The site features ominous red-white-and-black graphics and a form called “Report an attack.”
What an arrogant and creepy little idea:
The whole thing is both creepily paranoid and bumblingly buffoonish….produced by a chimera of Richard M. Nixon and Wile E. Coyote.
So true….It is serious that we have such a paranoid as President and the failures of his policies is critical. But laughing in the face of trouble is not a bad thing….Check out the thousands of funny Attackwatch jabs and quips on Twitter! (#AttackWatch)
