Deep thought for the day #ObamaHypocrite #NavySEALS #blameBush


After 4 years as President, Obama still blames Bush for all of our economic woes…..
By Obama’s logic, then shouldn’t Bush have been the first person Obama congratulated for the policies leading to the killing of bin Laden?

Van Jones threatening Americans with his version of “Arab Spring” in America


From RealClearPolitics, quotes from Van Jones on MSNBC, the media voice of the Obama regime (see video at RCP link):

Van Jones: “We are going to build a progressive counterbalance to the tea party. Eighty percent of Americans agree with everything that you say on this show, but we have no voice. We know that jobs are more important, and this phony, made-up deficit stuff they talk about. We know that people who have done well in America should do well by America and start paying America back in the form of more fair taxes.

“People who benefited from the bailouts and from the tax breaks should start paying America back. They’re doing great.

“Everybody else is suffering. That is 80 percent of the majority. And we’re going to now have a voice. 

Van Jones, as you may recall, stepped down as Obama’s “green” czar when it was found that Jones had advocated that Bush caused 9/11 and that he used derogatory terms for Republicans.

The media would have you believe that Jones just made a couple of mistakes there…..but Van Jones is a self-avowed Marxist whose has Obama as his mentor and partner in “crime”.

Michelle Malkin has much information on Van Jones and his efforts for bringing about redistribution for his buddy Obama.  A list of articles on Jones here. From Malkin:

The Contract for the American Dream is a contract for continued wealth redistribution from taxpayers to Democratic special interests from a failed prophet of green jobs boondogglery. Sound familiar?

Van Jones may have left Washington, but his spirit, alas, is alive and well in his mentor’s nightmare policies.

More importantly, with regards to Van Jones’ latest threat, I want to now quote the last item that was included in Van Jones’ comments on MSNBC:

And you’re going to see an American fall, an American autumn, just like we saw the Arab spring. You can see it right now with these young people on Wall Street. Hold onto your hats. We’re going to have an October offensive to take back the American dream and to rescue America’s middle class.”

This is where he is threatening potential violence and taking to the streets against the American people and business.  One thing that jumped out to me was the phrase “take back the American Dream.”

Recently, I ran across a page on Facebook titled “Restoring the True American Dream“.  It is not the kind of page I thought it was (smaller government, constitutional America, etc).  It is a page for radicals like Van Jones.   It wasn’t until I saw Van Jones comments today that I made the connection between Jones’ phrase and the name of the Facebook page.

The page sounds harmless on the surface and some posts are clearly made by the more moderate among us, who, like me, were probably drawn in by the title of the page.  However if you read through the comments on most posts and scroll down through many of the posts, you will find a plethora of hatred, Marxism, threats of “taking my country back” from the whites, how America is a racist country, it’s time we get our fair share, etc.

I believe that this is not the sentiment of the vast majority of Americans, but there is a flame of hatred in certain communities that are completely aligned with the views of Van Jones’ “American Autumn”.   And those views make it all too real to us when you see them on that FB page.

There is irrational hatred for whites, rich people, the Founding Fathers, George W. Bush, Congress, our country, our history….and some effort by Van Jones and/or Obama to stir up chaos and incite riots may be just the fuel to spark that flame.

Here are a few examples of comments (names omitted) from that FB page. Real people in America that are spouting off beliefs such as these (I didn’t correct language or punctation except for some unacceptable words) :

  • ” is time like Obama said stop complaining , he can’t do it alone with individuals who are bent on his Destruction we must stand together and take it to the Streets , get their attention and let our voice’s be heard and our Presents Felt!!!!”
  • In response to one commenter who denounced socialism:  “I see more & more people getting raped by the system & I am afraid. When the riots come I hope the mobs find you & your house & not mine.”
  • “the truth is Wall Street and Big Business is screwing us with no vaseline and we complain about our rights as we give them authority to take em away. “
  • obama exterminate white people to restore america 🙂 they have always been the problem.”
  • “BUT THATS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THOSE THAT ARE USE TO BEING CONSIDERED 1ST CLASS (MOSTLY WHITE AMERICANS) FEEL THAT THEIR SOCIAL POSITIONING IS IN DANGER OF CHANGING WHEN LOWER CLASS (MINORITY BLACK, LATIN, NATIVE, OR LOW CREDIT SCORE) BEGIN TO STAND UP INSTEAD OF LAYING DOWN UNDER THE MASSA’S WHIP…THEN WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND…THE PRESIDENT IS WELL WITHIN HIS RIGHTS AS THE COMMANDER & CHIEF TO MAKE CHANGES….BUSH DID IT…AND SO DID OTHER HEADS OF THE STATE…THE FOCUS IS SO OBVIOUSLY ON HIS SKIN...FEAR HE MIGHT LIBERATE THE AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY….GUESS WHAT…THE LAW GIVES HIM THAT AUTHORITY…SORRY FOR YA KLANSMEN…TEA PARTY…IT IS HAPPENING…LIKE IT OR NOT
  • On Herman Cain: “This brother has SOLD OUT ! YOU CAN’T BE BRAINWASHED UNLESS YOU ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE ! He don’t even look right……”
  • Again, about Hermain Cain: “Him and Clarence Thomas are both sellouts which is something you’d understand if you were black but you’re white so your opinion is weightless in this discussion. Cain is just another GOP Sambo tap dancing for dollars.”
  • If they would stop trying to make the rich richer the GOVERNMENT wouldn’t have to step in.”
  • TEA PARTY = Hates colored people! It’s very simple to understand. Their policy is stupid. They have agenda pushed by the corporate agenda. The Tea party is a CANCER to this government.”
  • “All I will say to those haters of the Chocolate-skinned, YOU need to grow up. You are not better or more educated than I am (me the black.) You white devils created the racial hatred as part of your household upbringing cultureand if still you can’t give it up, you will face the resentment of nature on you one very day of your messed-up lifeenough is enough with the lynching and imprisonment of my people.”
  • Rise up against the biggest threats which is not terrorism it is the corporation in which are all butt buddies to the republicans. Rise up I tell ya! Rise up!
  • Its amazing how we still have this mentality. Break the black woman by killing the black man in front of her so she believes the black man is weak. After seeing this, any offspring she raises will be broken and a well trained labor machine. This process continues today, the black family unit is broken. Until we fix this problem, things will never change.”
  • “….what seems to be “in your head” is a pile of [poop]. OR should I wipe my a– with your “Holy Bible“?”
  • All of you closeted, teabagging trolls are really just a bunch of ignorant, racist f–king crackers!”

And if you really want to sum up, in a crude dialect, what Obama and Van think of this country, it would be this FB “American Dream” commenter:

  • YOU PEOPLE, are neo-fascist thugs and bigots who apparently have the exclusive use of some type of clairvoyance to conjure up a cadre of dead, hemp-smoking, slave masters whom you so proudly refer to as the “Founding Fathers.” Well, let me hip you to something: My skin is brown and my lineage is long and illustrious. The way that I see it, my “Founding Fathers” have names like Taharqa, Mansa Musa and Sundiata Keita. The reason that America is in the mess that it is in now is because it is filled with ignorant cretins who know nothing and care less about the rest of the world. Earth is a community Lady – The U.S. doesn’t have any special preeminence. “

I encourage to peek at the Facebook page “Restoring the True American Dream”  if only to catch a glimpse of the people who irrationally and blindly support Obama….some who even hint at being proponents of “rising up” and “taking it to the streets”.  You don’t have to “like” the wall on that page in order to read everything.

It is eye-opening.  Makes me wonder if Van Jones started it!

Never forget!


Remembering 9-11: Just released 9/11 air traffic controller tapes

You can listen to the just released 9-11 air traffic controller tapes.

They bring back a few memories of the day, but always worth remembering the events and people of that day!

From KRMG.com:

1 ** Peter Zalewski, a Boston controller can’t reach American Airlines flight 11.

2 ** Flight attendant Betty Ong is on-board flight 11. She calls AA reservations from a seatback phone on the plane.

3 ** Controllers hear one of the hijackers aboard AA flight 11.

4 ** Controllers realize they have lost AA flight 11.

5 ** Air controllers are watching as the second plane, United 175, hits the tower.

6 ** Controllers are talking to United 93 when there is a commotion in the cockpit.

7 ** Officials now realize United 93 has crashed.

8 ** Permission is given to shoot down commercial aircraft if needed.

Little Miss “We have a right to disagree with any administration” now asks Obama administration critics “Whose side are you on”?


GAWD…this woman just disgusts me….I have never understood how a so-called lawyer who rode the coattails of her husband’s Presidency, then carpetbagged to become Senator of New York…has any qualifications for the position of Secretary of State.   Fact is, she doesn’t.

She is just another partisan posing as “smart power” while nearly everything she says and does falls squarely on the side of “dumb“, much like her boss, Obama.  Those who call her qualified and the “smartest woman in the room” confuse brains for an “I’m no Tammy Wynette” uber-liberal-feminist-corruptocrat-opportunist portraying a man.

Hillary Clinton has now asked those who oppose President Obama’s actions in Libya — “Whose side are you on“?

But the bottom line is, whose side are you on? Are you on Qadhafi’s side or are you on the side of the aspirations of the Libyan people and the international coalition that has been created to support them? For the Obama Administration, the answer to that question is very easy.

Whose side are we on?  Well, how about the side of the rule of law?

From HotAir.com:

This is really just the cherry on top of the sundae that is our Libya mission, isn’t it? First, the guy who became famous for opposing “dumb wars” launches a new mission in Libya.  Then he fights tooth and nail to avoid getting congressional approval, going so far as to ignore his own lawyers as to whether operations there are legal.  Then his own secretary of state — who spent years trying to make amends to the anti-war crowd for voting to invade Iraq — turns around and kinda sorta questions the loyalty of administration critics.

Never mind that this Libya war kinetic military action was begun with NO  Congressional approval (unlike the Iraq war) and Obama has declared that he does not need to follow the War Powers Act in Libya which is the law of the land.   BTW – President Bush had Congressional approval and many in this country and outside of this country who believe that Saddam had WMD.  All legitimate basis to go to war.  And the result has been a country that has been saved from the grips of its tyrant and, while still somewhat vulnerable, is a fledgling democracy.

But, apparently, Miss Whitewater thought it patriotic to offer dissent on legal wars, just not the illegal ones that she supports.

Well, here is Miss Testosterone’s words in 2003 when she wished to disagree with the actions of then President Bush (Warning: SCREECH alert!)

 “I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow you’re not patriotic. We should stand up and say we are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration.”

Hypocritical Screeching….a Hillary Clinton staple.

There never was an anti-war movement, just an anti-Bush movement


We all know it and now CDR Salamander says it!

Deep down, I think – most of us knew that anyway. It was an anti-Bush movement. War had nothing to do with it – it was all about the Left finding a way to regain power. By and large, 85% of the “anti-war” movement, with its manufactured International A.N.S.W.E.R./Code Pink rent-a-mob and their bannermen .

Spot on!   Need additional proof besides Obama’s hypocritical stances on Iraq, Afghanistan, and Gitmo closing?

Take it from King Obama, who has declared, despite legal advice otherwise, that our war kinetic military action in Libya does not represent “hostilities”.   Therefore, he needs no stinkin’ approval from Congress or the law.  Don’t trust me?  Trust the leftist NY Times:

President Obama rejected the views of top lawyers
at the Pentagon and the Justice Department when he decided that he had the legal
authority to continue American military participation in the air war in Libya
without Congressional authorization, according to officials familiar with
internal administration deliberations.

Jeh C. Johnson, the Pentagon
general counsel, and Caroline D. Krass, the acting head of the Justice
Department’s Office of Legal Counsel, had told the White House that they
believed that the United States military’s activities in the NATO-led air war
amounted to “hostilities.” Under the War Powers Resolution, that would have
required Mr. Obama to terminate or scale back the mission after May
20.

But Mr. Obama decided instead to adopt the legal analysis of several
other senior members of his legal team — including the White House counsel,
Robert Bauer, and the State Department legal adviser, Harold H. Koh — who argued
that the United States military’s activities fell short of “hostilities.” Under
that view, Mr. Obama needed no permission from Congress to continue the mission
unchanged.

The administration followed an unusual process in developing its position.                                                                                                                    Traditionally, the Office of Legal Counsel solicits
views from different agencies and then decides what the best interpretation of
the law is. The attorney general or the president can overrule its views, but
rarely do.

In this case, however, Ms. Krass was asked to submit the
Office of Legal Counsel’s thoughts in a less formal way to the White House,
along with the views of lawyers at other agencies. After several meetings and
phone calls, the rival legal analyses were submitted to Mr. Obama, who is a
constitutional lawyer, and he made the decision.

Allahpundit sums it up nicely at HotAir.com:

The Times is treating it as the major story that it is, but under a Republican president (especially one named, say, George Bush) it would be a scandal of nuclear proportions.  What they’re basically saying here, without actually saying it, is that the president’s own lawyers told him that the Libya war is illegal and he responded by looking around for other lawyers who’d tell him what he wanted to hear.

Oh, and all I hear is crickets from the Left and the media (but I repeat myself) regarding Obama’s words on Bush’s Iraq War (one for which Bush received Congressional approval).  Here’s Obama’s words on “dumb”wars from 2002 (via Verum Serum):

That’s what I’m opposed to. A dumb war. A rash war. A war based not on reason but on passion, not on principle but on politics.

Now let me be clear – I suffer no illusions about Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal man. A ruthless man. A man who butchers his own people to secure his own power. He has repeatedly defied UN resolutions, thwarted UN inspection teams, developed chemical and biological weapons, and coveted nuclear capacity.

He’s a bad guy. The world, and the Iraqi people, would be better off without him.

But I also know that Saddam poses no imminent and direct threat to the United States, or to his neighbors, that the Iraqi economy is in shambles, that the Iraqi military a fraction of its former strength, and that in concert with the international community he can be contained until, in the way of all petty dictators, he falls away into the dustbin of history.

I know that even a successful war against Iraq will require a US occupation of undetermined length, at undetermined cost, with undetermined consequences.

I know that an invasion of Iraq without a clear rationale and without strong international support will only fan the flames of the middle east, and encourage the worst, rather than best, impulses of the Arab world, and strengthen the recruitment arm of Al Qaeda.

Well, here’s what I’m opposed to…. A dumb anti-American President posing as a King.  I oppose a war based solely on the whims of Obama and defended based on those very whims, not on the law or anyone else’s view.  I loathe a President, who is sworn to uphold our Constitution, but who would base his views for Libya on the “international” community, like the UN and NATO, instead of the laws of his country.

I am sick of the Left calling Iraq an illegal Bush war when Bush had the approval of Congress.  Obama has a truly illegal war now and has blatantly thumbed his nose at anyone who would question it or even call for him to make the action legal….Now, .let’s see Obama spin his deceit and hypocrisy further on Libya.

Oh, and Obama, what happened to “this action (in Libya) will last only a matter of days, not weeks?”  (It’s been 90 days or almost 13 weeks as of this writing)

(Hat tip to my husband for the CDR Salamander link)

What Obama will say in his (10-day-late) Libya speech


Fear me, Muammar!

Tonight Obama will finally lower himself (in his mind) to address the American public on his Libya mission….10 days after it began.

I don’t know if I’ll watch because I usually get nauseous with his lies and spin.

Besides,  I think I know what we will hear from Obama in one form or another tonight (my thoughts in parentheses):

  • The mission has been clear and focused (even though the mission and actions are NOT clear….and the focused “no-fly zone” has expanded into an effort to prop up the rebels and take sides in a civil war in Libya…and Obama has said Gaddafi must go while declaring that is not our mission)
  • MY mission is successful ( as I mentioned before…Obama will declare success even though the mission and end game is not clear)
  • Implementing a no-fly zone only (even though we are bombing tanks and other targets)
  • We are intervening in a humanitarian crisis (never mind that European oil is at stake… War for oil, anyone?) 
  • Intervening is vital to our national interest (but Defense Chief Gates said just yesterday it is not)
  • We had approval of Arab League and UN (no Congressional approval, though)
  • I repeatedly consulted/discussed with Congress (even though Congress was not consulted prior to bombing, only briefed as it began)
  • Supporting Libyan people and their “democracy” movement (despite the fact that some of the rebels are al Qaeda fighters–likely those who fought against the US in Iraq)
  • We put together a multilateral coalition unlike other President’s in the past who went in unilaterally ( he means Bush and Iraq and he is lying about this…Bush’s coalition came after months of discussion in Congress, 17 UN resolutions and more countries on board than Obama has in Libya)
  • We got out in “days” as I said we would and handed over to NATO (never mind it looks weak AND NATO is pretty much the US of A!)

I think we might also be able to play Obama Libya speech “Bingo” and see how many times he says the following:

  • Success, I, me, unilateral/(Bush insinuation), humanitarian, handing off, NATO, bloodbath, let me be clear, I did, I have, smart, no-fly zone, I’ve said from the beginning

Here are some things Obama will not utter tonight:

  • The word “war” (kinetic military action, perhaps?)
  • A “let me be clear” reminder of his own statements about Presidents declaring war without approval, about “dumb wars”, about how we can’t go about helping every nation in need
  • al Qaeda
  • oil
  • that his hand off to NATO means that we are still footing the bill and pretty much run NATO with our manpower and leadership.

And you can bet that the paradoxes of the Libyan War outlined by Victor Davis Hansen will not be addressed by Obama.  I highly recommend reading VDH’s piece here.

Oh–and for the media’s part, don’t expect a replay of the hand-wringing they displayed for Bush and the Iraq War.  You can just hear some of the following and how it would be spoken and portrayed if this were a Republican President/Bush in office:

  • Still no answers on why Congress was not consulted, but the Arab League and the UN were.
  • And tonight, despite the rhetoric of the President, we find that the rebels in Libya have al Qaeda amongst their midst…if not fully comprised of al Qaeda fighters who fought against the US in Iraq.  Are we propping up our enemies?
  • What will this WAR cost the American taxpayers in this poor economy?
  • Why choose Libya for humanitarian aid?  Or is this really about a war for oil?  Join us tonight at 10PM for the exclusive.
  • Obama’s Defense Sec and Sec of State gave differing viewpoints on our need to be in this unilateral war.  We, the MSM, will ask about the chaos in the President’s administration.

…..I could go on.

Have fun watching our President —10 days, at least, too late.
