586.) President Barack Obama’s Agriculutre Secretary calls Food Stamps and Snap benifits the most direct form of economic stimilus. Big government…. spend your way to prosperity…… didn’t we try this and it fail miserably…. I think so. I would have to say that President Obama’s man is wrong, considering the number of people on foodstamps has climbed 42% under President Obama’s watch, and our economy is not 42% better.
587.) President Barack Obama has gone on a bus tour through the country. On this bus tour President Obama had a run in with a leader of the Tea Party a man by the name of Ryan Rhods.
Ryan Rhodes “How is your vice President Calling us Terrorists?”
President Obama “Sir Sir, I’ll look….”
Ryan Rhodes “I would like to understand that”
President Obama “Ok. ok, I’ll explain that right now. He, he did not call you guys terrorists…”
Ryan Rhodes “He said we were acting like terrorist, hostage takers”
President Obama “No, no what he said was for us to be willing to take the economy to the brink was irresponsible, and it was. Now the truth of the matter is, considering what is said about me consistently…”
Attendee “He’s the second person in your administration to call the right wing people terrorists. Janet Napolitano did it first.”
President Obama “No, no, no, that’s not…”
Attendee, “She said we were right wing extremists”
President Obama “well that is true Timothy McVeigh should be, you wouldn’t disagree with that”
Attendee “You do Realize that 90% of domestic terrorist attacks are done by left wing enviromental radicals and not people like me.”
Ryan Rhodes “That’s reasonable a balanced budget is reasonable”
President Obama “All he was saying was… he wasn’t objecting to a balanced budget ammendment. He was objecting to us almost defaulting.”
Ryan Rhodes “Then why didn’t someone pass the balanced budget ammendment? Its simple we can pass that and nothing else.”
President Obama “It doesn’t sound like you are interesting in listening.”
Ryan Rhodes “But you aren’t listening either.”
The President and Mr. Rhodes had a private conversation later. Now I will not stand here and say that ambushing a President is the proper way to act. That being said we need to look at what was said. First off lets examine what Vice President Joe Biden said. According to the New York Post Vice President Joe Biden said, “They have acted like terrorists” in response to irate Democrats complaining about having made a deal with the House Republicans. Now Vice President Biden was not calling the Tea Partiers terrorist directly but lets look at how our system of government works. We send our neighbors, people of like mind to us, to represent our views to Washington in the national convention. So by calling our representives terrorist, he is calling us terrorist.
President Obama tried to dismiss what Janet Napalitano said as well. She stood by a report released on “right wing extremism” This report said that “Rightwing extremism,” is not limited to religious and racial hate groups, but rather that it extends to “those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely”. What has the Tea Party been accused of, oh thats right being anti-government, being anti-federal government, believing that consitutionaly the states are granted more rights than the federal government.
I have to make this point as well, President Obama was told about Janet Napalitano calling them right wing extremist, and he said well yes that is true. Then related it to Timothy McVeigh, what does that show you about the way the President views the Tea Party. First agreeing with them being extremist, then linking them to a real terrorist. Now I will say this that I doubt 90% of domestic terrorist acts are commited by pyscho greenies.
I love how President Obama told Mr. Rhodes that he doesn’t seem interested in listening. That is ironic, because President Obama hasn’t been listening to the people for almost four years now. We told him not to pass the porkulus bill, he did, we told him we didn’t want his health care bill, he signed it into law. We sent an overwhelming number of Tea Party members to congress to reign in government spending, and he starts talking about “investing” (aka spending) trillions more.
Finally there was a bit that I took out of this exhange because it did not portain to the President, there was someone who asked where were you in the bush years. That is a valid question, many people commited the same crime of ignorance to the spending crisis when Bush was President just because there was an R in front of his name. Just as many Democrats are now ignoring what President Obama is doing to our debt. The Democrats ran against President Bush and the Republicans on the gounds of the debt and deficit that they were racking up. Ironic now how they have changed their tune. Many people where asleep to the concept of the debt, the deficit, the inflation of American Dollars, now they have be awoken by storm that is brewing. It is not a valid arugment to say where were you in the Bush years, as many people who were against the spending four years ago now stand silent.
588.) President Obama is on a three day bus tour, where he is focusing on talking about jobs and getting America back to work. His 1.1 million dollar bus, nick named Gray Hound One, was built in Canada. So President Obama used tax payer dollars to buy this million dollar bus, for a tour through the heartland and had it built outside of the country. There are two bad marks here, the first, buying this bus didn’t help American manufacturing. The second, this is a lavish expense for what appears to be a campaign trip.
589.) President Obama said on his three day trip around the heartland of America that the economy was actually getting better than when he took office. Well, we have lost 1.3 million jobs, after his porkulus bill. Unemployment has remained stubbornly around 9% not 8%. Its no better than it was, I personally think it is getting worse.
590.) It would seem that President Barack Obama has been using tax payer dollars to manipulate us through the web. A political watch dog group called Judical Watch has found that the Obama Administration used tax payer dollars to fund a campaign to manipulate search engine in order to help promote Obamacare. The fallowing are all quotes cited by Judicial Watch from their FOIA requests.
- The Obama HHS launched a campaign to track Internet searches and to use online search engines such as Google and Yahoo to drive traffic to a government website promoting Obama’s healthcare overhaul. Using “pay-per-click” advertising tools, such as Google Adwords, HHS purposely targeted for influence people searching the term “Obamacare,” a word that has been described as “disparaging” by political agents of the president.
- According to a budget summary prepared by Ogilvy, from October 2010 through February 2011, the Obama administration spent $1,435,009 on these online advertisements alone, including advertising campaigns with Google and Yahoo, almost $300,000 per month.
- A number of documents address the need to target the Obamacare propaganda campaign to Hispanics, blacks, and women. For example, according to an email from Chris Beakey, Vice President of Ogilvy PR Worldwide, to HHS officials on December 16, 2010, summarizing a conference call, “You want to utilize the bulk of their paid media efforts (which would include expenditures for Radio One and Univision) on media that reaches African Americans and Hispanics. The money will go farther and these audiences continue to be a top priority.”
- A January 18, 2011, email from Ogilvy to HHS New Media Communications Director Julia Eisman notes with respect to a Spanish Banner ad campaign, “I realize we really can’t use the blond mom and child for this audience.”
So lets get this streight, evidence, a lot of evidence, exists to point that President Barack Obama is using our money to promote a law, which most people stand against, in order to manipulate our views of it. The government trying to steer individuals who are simply seeking information on health care related issues, towards sites singing the praises of the bill. This does not sound creepy at all.
591.) President Obama has a problem with laws being enforced and calling a rose a rose, a sunk a sunk, or a criminal a criminal. This has been highlighted yet again by the Presidents choosing to allow illegal immigrants facing deportation the chance to stay in this country and get a work permit. In the mean time they will be focusing on removing from the US convicted criminals or anyone who might be a national security risk. Basically under this new executive order (which I thought President Obama hated, or did he just hate Bush using them. I can’t remem er)
– It allows hundreds of thousands of Illegal Immigrants to work in this country and compete for already spars U.S. jobs.
– A Presidential task force will decide who gets amnesty and who doesn’t. (Oh boy yet another amazing government bureaucracy.)
– The reversal of a judges decision.
So what this executive order does, is completely underminds the princibles of our government. It is yet another example of President Barack Obama’s complete lack of respect for the law. Our nation was set up with a system of checks and balances. The people check the government by electing them. The States used to be able to check the Federal Government by electing the senators (something progressives took away in the progressive era of Woodrow Wilson). In the federal government the Congress has the power to make laws, but the President can check that power by vetoing bills. Congress can overide the President with a 2/3rds majority vote. The Executive branch has a check on the judical branch by appointing judges. The congress can check the President’s power approving or disapproving these appointments. The President does not have the power to create law, nor does he have the power to overide a judges decision. This executive order is essentially doing both of those. Proof positive that President Barack Obama believes he is above the law. That he believes he is all powerfull, proof that he will do whatever it takes to get what he wants legal or not.
