Examiner: The #Obama You Don’t Know (ie because the #MSM won’t tell you) #corruption #Chicagomachine


“But beyond the spin and the polls, a starkly different picture emerges. It is a portrait of a man quite unlike his image, not a visionary reformer but rather a classic Chicago machine pol who thrives on rewarding himself and his friends with the spoils of public office, and who uses his position to punish his enemies.”

Obama in his own words: “Because I actually believe in redistribution….so everyone has a shot” #socialism


Tape from 1998 — Obama in his own words– “I  actually believe in redistribution”.

Straight from the Drudge Report today:

From YouTube page: “At an October 19, 1998 conference at Loyola University, Barack Obama spoke against “propaganda” that said government doesn’t work and the need to “pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution because I actually believe in redistribution.”

From the Daily Caller – pointing out that Obama’s message was to “trick” the public into redistribution:

“Amid public distrust, “the trick is, “How do we structure government systems  that pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution? — because I  actually believe in redistribution, at least at a certain level to make to make  sure everybody has got a shot,” Obama told a Loyola University audience in  October 1998.”

So if Obama believes in redistribution, how come he never ran on that in the 2008 campaign?  He and his followers are absolutely appalled when you call him a socialist….which he is.

At least Romney has been truthful about those who take from government….most of it courtesy of Obama.  Obama can’t be truthful about what he believes because he wants to “trick” the people into things they wouldn’t want if they knew his real intentions….a socialist, downgraded America.

This video gets to the gist of why Obama must go.  His beliefs are anti-American and for 4 years he has tried to hide his true intentions by cloaking his policies in “blame Bush”, class warfare rhetoric.

Obama must go!

#Obama in 2008 slanders half the country by calling them “bitter clingers” #romneyencore


Of course the Obama-media will pounce on the truth-teller Romney’s comments in the “gotcha” video….

But don’t we all remember when Obama slandered half of the country back in 2008 with his “bitter clingers” remark — a remark that was secretly taped?  Where was the heavy breathing by the media on that one saying “Obama’s lost the race”?

Such hypocrisy….and Obama’s comment wasn’t even factual or remotely true.  Romney’s was.

Here’s Obama trashing half of the country (or more) while being taped back in 2008:

Text of comments:

You go 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.”

Just throw this back in the faces of the Obama-lovers in the media and elsewhere when they try to trash Romney for stating the obvious.
The double-standards and dishonesty are breathtaking in the media (and on the Left).

#Romney whacks the #Left with another #Truth Stick! #Obama hit hardest #47percent #SecretRomneyTapeRevelations


Tonight, Mitt Romney responded to the Mother Jones “gotcha” video…The video the Left thought would catch Romney in a “gotcha” moment seems to be backfiring for them.

And Romney’s response is spot-on.  Obama’s policies are a failure and adds to the dependence in this country. Transcript of Romney’s response:

“Of course, there’s a very different approach of the two campaigns.  As I point out that among those that pay no tax, approximately 47% of Americans, I’m not likely to be highly successful with a message of lowering taxes.  That’s not as attractive to those who don’t pay income taxes as to those who do.  And likewise, those who are reliant on government are not as attractive to my message of slimming down the size of government… The president and I have two very different approaches to the future of America and what it takes to ignite our economy and put people back to work.  The president believes in what I describe as a government centered society. Where government plays a larger and larger role and plays more and more of the needs of individuals.  And, I happen to believe instead in a free enterprise, free individual society where people pursuing their dreams are able to employ one another, build enterprises, build the strongest economy in the world.  I happen to believe that my approach is the approach that will put 23 million people back to work again.

We’ve watched the approach of the president’s approach over the last 3 1/2 or 4 years.  And his government centric, larger and larger government approach has meant that we have 15 million more people on food stamps, 23 million people out of work or stopped looking for work, or underemployed.  We have had 43 straight months of unemployment above 8%.  And my view is the right approach for the nation is not to adopt a government centered approach but instead a free, free people, free enterprise, free market consumer driven approach and that will build the strongest economy for ourselves and for the coming generations.”

(Video is at bottom of this post)

As I’ve asked one leftist commenter previously

What part of Obama’s policies actually ENCOURAGE self-reliance rather than  dependency?
What part of Obama’s policies actually ENCOURAGE individual success and/or climbing OUT of poverty instead of a steady dependence on government?

The Left gets silent (or avoid answering the specific question) when asked to defend Obama’s disastrous policies.
Thankfully Romney was not silent in his excellent response.

Romney is a free enterprise, capitalist, pro-American who is for individual freedom and effort and the power of the people.
Obama is a central-planning, socialist, anti-American who is for government dependency and his own power.

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.

#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.
