Tag Archives: President Obama

The time for games is over. It is time to make a choice. It is time to make a stand. We have seen the votes in the Senate, we have seen the votes in Iowa, we have seen the votes in New Hampshire, and the path forward is clear. There is only one candidate going forward that has a chance of winning the White House. There is only one candidate that can save this nation from the ice clutches of progressive insanity. That candidate is Senator Ted Cruz.
Senator Cruz has proven that he is the only candidate that has the ability to bring unity, not just of the Republican Party, but of the entire conservative movement. We need a man who can unite everyone who wants a smaller, limited government, everyone who believes in liberty. Ted Cruz is that man.
Progressive forces are already marshaling to defeat him. Telling us that he is too conservative to win the White House. Telling us that he will fall flat on his face. I ask you, why, why should we listen to these people. Why should we listen to Presidential misfires like John McCain, Bob Dole, and Mitt Romney? What do these people know about winning the White House? All they managed to achieve was showing us how to lose.

John McCain ran as the moderate who could work across the aisle. Look what that got us, four years of Barack Obama. John McCain’s moderate beliefs paved the way for Obamacare, the porkulus bill, four years of trillion, 1,000,000,000 dollar deficits.

Mitt Romney ran as a compassionate conservative, the conservative who could reach across the aisle, the conservative who could win. But let’s not forget his progressive heart. He created the frame work for Obamacare. He lacked a firm belief in conservative principles. He sounded the part, but the concept of limited government eluded him. What did this get us? Four years of President Barack Obama. Four more years of radical leftist ideology. Four years of rule by executive order. The implementation of Obamacare. A perpetual assault on our Constitutional Republic.

So now I have to ask you, with all of the damage that has been done, can we afford to mess around in 2016? Can we afford to listen to progressives, Democrat pundits, and presidential losers? The answer is no. We must send forth a strong Conservative, a True Conservative who is willing to fight for liberty, fight for the Constitution, and fight to return autonomy over our lives to where it belongs, our hands.
There are many choices in the GOP field right now. However, only one has a chance at winning the White House, who has what it takes to defeat Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. Only one who can finally fire back at their radical ideology and cast it back into the abyss where it belongs. That man is Senator Ted Cruz.

Oh I am sure there are many who doubt me. Who have bought into the establishment’s belief that we can’t be conservative? Or those who actually think that Democrats want to share their votes with us. But if you open up your eyes, and refuses to cave into their sirens call towards ignorance, there is only one choice before us. Conservative Principles are the only way to reclaim our nation.

Let us start, as we always do, by looking at the facts. The two largest wave elections in American History took place in 2010, and 2014. What caused such massive discontent in the hearts of the American People? Was it the conservatives in congress? Prior to 2010 you would be hard pressed to find a conservative; the Democrats had super majorities in both houses. Conservative Republicans had been all but wiped out. The answer, President Obama’s radical ideology. The TEA Party sprang up to fight this radical abomination of Democracy, and march towards tyrannical socialism. The result, the GOP took the House.

Now many would say that this was a fluke. Obviously people were even more upset at the GOP because in 2012 they didn’t elect Mitt Romney. I propose to you that the reason people were upset in 2012; the reason why 4,000,000 conservatives who voted for John McCain in 2008 stayed home in 2012 was because the GOP lacked the spine, the will power to act as an opposition party. The American People saw nothing from John Boehner, or in Mitt Romney to push back against the progressive storm facing the nation.

2014 once again saw a wave election. The people of this nation had been force to stand by and watch as they were demonized and belittled by the President and Harry Reid. Senator Reid blaming the stagnation of the GOP when in fact he refused to allow over 300 bills passed in the House to reach the floor of the Senate. We were forced to watch as President Obama ruled as a king, enforcing his will with the stroke of a pen. So in 2014 the people cried out “ENOUGH”. The election of 2014 was so consequential that Democrats are now an endangered species across the county.

The people of the country want someone to push back. To fight against the insanity of the progressive ideology. Why else would they have elected the opposition party in two midterm elections? If they wanted more of President Obama’s radical agenda surely they would have voted in more Democrats so as to push it through.
So for a quick recap:
2008: Progressive John McCain lost to Progressive Barack Obama
2010: Conservative lead TEA Party devastates progressives in the House
2012: Moderate Mitt Romney lost to Progressive Barack Obama
2014: The Nation shoves Democrats out of office to oppose the President’s Agenda

Please tell me where the evidence that the nation is against the principles of Limited Government, and Maximum Individual Liberty. If it is there I cannot see it.

Now let’s move on to some more recent elections that have taken place, these dealing with the nomination process for the Republican Party. Specifically Iowa and New Hampshire.
Senator Cruz won Iowa, a conservative strong hold. This is not really a surprise; he is the strongest conservative in the race.
The greater surprise came in New Hampshire. There were two factors that should have greatly limited Senator Cruz’s ability to win in New Hampshire. The first and most obvious is that after spending the necessary time, money, and energy in Iowa, there was not a lot of time left to campaign in New Hampshire. This is why your more progressive candidates like John Kasich and Donald Trump skipped over much of Iowa.

The second reason that Cruz should have been blown away in New Hampshire is that New Hampshire has become a bastion of the progressive movement. They haven’t voted for a Republican in a Presidential Race since 2000.

Yet despite both of these crippling handicaps Senator Ted Cruz finished third. Yes, Senator Ted Cruz came in third in New Hampshire, a state that saw Bernie Sanders stand Triumphant on the Democrat side. Conservative Ted Cruz came in third, in this bastion of progressive politics, after spending less than every other candidate on the Republican side.

Let’s see just how much the other candidates spent, and how well they fared shall we?
Donald Trump spent $40 a vote
John Kasich spent $269 a vote
Ted Cruz spent $18 a vote
Jeb Bush spent $1,150 a vote
Marco Rubio spent $508 a vote
Chris Christie spent $852 a vote

the only person who Senator Cruz outspent was Ben Carson. Despite their massive spending, Jeb Bush, Rubio, and Christie fell to Ted Cruz. The fog is starting to lift, and the choice is starting to become clear.

At this point there is only one conservative option left, only one that will give us a chance to preserve this nation. It is time to stand behind Senator Ted Cruz.
Far too often the conservatives of this party divide themselves allowing a moderate to slip through and lose in the general election. This time around that moderate is Donald Trump. If you don’t want Donald Trump as your candidate, and you don’t want Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton as your President, you have but one choice, stand behind Ted Cruz.

A vote for Marco Rubio, or Ben Carson, both honorable men, is a vote for the ideology of Bernie Sanders. Let us face the facts; Marco Rubio failed to win in conservative Iowa. Marco Rubio failed to win in progressive New Hampshire. He far out spent Ted Cruz, and still lost to him. All his candidacy is doing is serving to strip votes away from the only viable candidate we have left.

I was not a Ted Cruz man myself. I liked him, but I harbored strong doubts about his ability to win. I have always been a strong Rand Paul supporter. I supported Ron Paul before him. It is time to face reality. Senator Cruz is the only proven conservative in this race that can win the White House.

I know what Rubio supporters are thinking, and I want you to stop and think before you respond with this statement, “Marco Rubio is the conservative that can win”. Mitt Romney was the “Conservative that could win”. It is time to step away from the politics of the past, and step into a new age. An age of reason, an age of liberty by law. Marco Rubio might make a fine President, but he will never win the nomination, or for that matter the White House.

This election became even more critical with the passing of Supreme Court Justice Scalia. The next President will most likely have to fill his seat. Who do you want making that nomination? Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, or perhaps Bernie Sanders. Maybe we’d like another progressive Republican to nominate someone. Look how well President Bush’s John Roberts votes. How many times has he abandoned rule of law for the popular choice? Obamacare mandate comes to mind. How about redefining the rules of the English Language to change the meaning of the word States, from being multiple bodies, to the Federal Government? Personally I want a Constitutional Scholar such as Ted Cruz making that decision.

With each passing day it becomes harder and harder to overcome the progressives in this race. With each day they grow bolder. So when the inevitable happens, and Marco Rubio drops from the race, I only pray it isn’t too late to prevent the disaster a Trump, Clinton, or Sanders presidency holds in store.

It is time to choose. Do we choose to back Senator Ted Cruz, or do we choose to give up our Republic forsaking the liberty and prosperity it has safeguarded for over 200 years. The choice is yours.

I am getting sick and tired of seeing all of these memes appearing all over the internet telling me how bad of a Christian I am if I do not support bringing Syrian refugees into this country. They take on many different forms, but the basic formula remains the same. Find a nativity related picture, ad a sentence about how Marry and Joseph were refugees, distribute to millions of people online, and shameless exploit the very religion that progressive’s despise in order to expedite their dangerous agenda. All of these memes are wrong. I understand that progressives may not have had any exposure to the Christmas story, so allow me to please clarify the problems with their story.
First of all, Marry and Joseph were not refugees, they were not fleeing prosecution, they were not homeless. It was not fear or terror that sent them on their march towards Bethlehem, but rather civic duty. They were on their way to the place of Joseph’s birth, Bethlehem, to register for a tax levied by the Roman government. I fail to see how, to put it in a modern equivalent, registering to vote or filing a change of address form equates to fleeing terrorism.
Second, if you read the Nativity Story you will find that what drove the young couple to the manger was “there was no room in the inn “(Luke 2:7). So what the progressives are trying to say is that if you are traveling and find a “no vacancy” sign, suddenly you are refugee. I might not be one of those highly educated politicians, or hail from the East Coast, but I am pretty sure that not being able to find a hotel room does not make you a refugee.
So there is no real connection between the Syrian Refugees. If anything the Christmas Story is a story of tax hungry progressive monsters forcing a pregnant woman to spend precious time and money to give the government more money.

I have opened the window to write a new post probably over 100 times sense my last posting. I have thought that I felt the need to write something, but it all feels like it is blurring together for me. How many times can progressive mythology be brought down by science and common sense? I quickly lost interest or forgot about the posts that I was going to write. But this time, this time is different.
I feel compelled to sit down and write about what is happening in the country in the wake of the Oregon shooting. I want to look at some facts that are not being observed. I must talk about the thousands of thoughts running through my head.
I have long warned that we are entering a dark time in this country, I am sorry to say this is the first thing that I must change about this post. We are not entering a dark time, we are IN a dark time. Our nation need not prepare for the coming storm, it is too late for that. The painful slashing talons of the hurricane are already here. The sea level is rising, and the decisions we make now will determine our survival.
By now I am positive that anyone who might find their way to this blog has heard of the shooting in Umpqua Community College in Oregon. When I first heard of the shooting I was shocked, and my soul hurt for those who lost family members in the shooting. I knew that they would be suffering the pain of losing someone they love, but I also knew they would soon feel a pain that no parent, friend, or family member should have to suffer. They would soon feel the excruciating pain of the dagger stuck in their heart twisted as their pain is exploited to push an agenda that otherwise would be obliterated by public outrage.
After each of these tragedies the progressives fangs emerge. The smoke has not even finished pouring out of the barrel before they begin trying to exploit the deaths of countless innocent lives to push their agenda. Typically when something like this happens, I am quick to jump in, quick to start defending our rights, and expose the progressive agenda for what it really is. This time however, my rage was unleashed when I heard President Obama speak on the situation.
After a national tragedy our nation looks towards our leaders for solace and strength. The right words spoken after a tragedy can unite the nation; bring out the best in our souls. I will always remember watching President Bush standing in the rubble of the Twin Towers, holding that fireman saying, “I can hear you, the rest of the world can hear you, and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon.” President Bush did a lot of things wrong, but at that moment he galvanized the nation. Those words, that confidence, served as an inspiration for all of us.
With the eyes of the nation glued to their televisions, President Obama stepped to the lectern. What words of healing would he offer, what words of wisdom would he choose to sooth the nation’s suffering? None, he was not interested in healing, he came ready for war. President Obama had this to say about the shooting, “This is something we should politicize”.
Something to be politicized…. I have long said that progressives feed off these tragedies, they latch on to the morning, and feed off their suffering. I never once thought that they would ever openly admit it on national TV news.
As you can imagine, the second President Obama let these vial words of naked partisan hatred from his lips, my fingers started flying. I blew my Facebook account up. I was enraged. I was preparing to write an entry to disembowel his fanciful arguments. I was going to destroy his ignorant claims, and lay waste to any progressive who dare perpetuate the “effective gun control” myth. But I stopped.
Yes, I stopped. I have written on the subject of gun control countless times. I have scientifically proven that fallacy of the gun control argument. I can honestly say that I laughed out loud when President Obama, in front of God and the Nation said, “he notion that gun laws don’t work, is not borne out by the evidence.” The first thought that came to my mind was how most mass shootings take place in gun free zones. His evidence claim is quickly evaporating. I realized that there was no need to write about idiotic nature of President Obama’s ignorant statements.
President Obama is a lame duck President. As of the landslide election of 2014, President Obama has no legal means left to advance his agenda in a meaningful way. His Presidency is effectively over. He is now a non-factor in American Politics. He can sit and fume in the White House for the rest of his term. Let him rot.
However, that all changed when I heard the story of the Ten Commandments being taken down in the dark of night. Seeing these stone tablets removed by cowards under a vial of darkness I realized, that our nation has indeed entered dark times. The Ten Commandments were ordered removed from the Oklahoma Capitol Building after being ordered by the Oklahoma Supreme Court. The tablets were taken down under the cover of darkness to avoid protests and outrage from the public.
Why?
Why were these tablets taken down in the dead of night when no one would be there? The answer is simple, progressive politicians know that Americans hold our religious views very deeply. They know that public outrage can quickly be aimed directly at their political careers. They know that in this modern day and age, when a 25 year old guy from Ohio has the ability to reach the entire world with his viewpoints, public outrage can quickly grow. They did not want huge protests in the street. They did not want the firestorm that would accompany removing the Ten Commandments, for fear that it would unite the Christians, the Jews, basically the majority of the United States.
Christianity, religion itself is under attack in this country. Christianity is the current punching bag for the progressives. Religion is the enemy to progressives. The concept that mankind was created by God, is troubling for people who want absolute blind authority over the masses. How can they have unquestioned power to oppress…. Sorry… to protect the population from their own ignorance, if the people of this country answer to God? The answer is that they can’t, thus religion must be destroyed. This is common practices in progressive states like the USSR. The State, not God is the supreme power in the world. Your rights are not granted to you by God, they do not even exist. What you think to be your rights, are in fact nothing more than privileges granted to you by the state.
Most progressives will of course deny any such war is being waged, or that the removal of religious liberty is their ultimate goal. Often they will cover up this plot by saying things like, “Of course we do not want to ban religion. There is no war on religion, this country was founded with strong religious principals. No one could ever destroy that bond.” Typically this statement will be followed by the typical “acceptance” statement. They are right. No one in this country, except for progressives and radical lunatics, would ever accept an outright destruction of religious liberties. Instead, the progressives work as they always work, in the shadows.
Progressives have gradually been conditioning the majority of the country into giving up their religious liberties, while simultaneously dividing the nation along religious lines . Look at how viciously they attack Christians. They attack public displays of faith, no more Christmas Trees and don’t you dare say “Merry Christmas”. They take down monuments honoring those who died protecting our freedoms, because it took the shape of the cross. They claim these religious symbols are offensive to other religions, thus pitting Americans against one another. Christians are now suddenly the bullies, while Jews, Muslims, and Atheists are now victims of aggressive rhetoric such as “Merry Christmas”. They bastardize the First Amendment to mean freedom FROM religion, rather than freedom OF religion.
Christians are despicable aggressors forcing their view points down the throats of everyone around them. Never mind the fact that the ACLU is filing a lawsuit to FORCE Catholics to violate their religious views, and perform abortions in Catholic Hospitals. Never mind the fact that Christian Bakers are being forced to make wedding cakes for gay couples, even though gay marriage violates their religious beliefs. Never mind the fact that President Obama refuses to call the people burning prisoners alive in cages Islamic Terrorists.
Never mind the fact that when a man walks into Umpqua Community College in Oregon and begins to choose victims by the answer to a simple question, “Are you a Christian?” a yes response followed by a bullet, there is silence. Sorry, there isn’t silence. There is anything but silence. President Obama has the bold face audacity to step up onto a podium lean up against his lectern and tell us that the shooting is our fault for not letting him violate the United States Constitution. President Obama openly admitted that he wanted to “politicize” this issue.
Never mind the fact that the stories covering the events of that bloody day are about gun control… sorry gun safety control is a dirty word, the bravery of the man who stood up to the shooter, or the arrogance and ignorance of President Obama. My favorite story has GQ literally stating F!@K You Ben Carson, all because Dr. Carson said he would have stood up to the shooter. How many stories have you seen talking about how the gunman set out to execute Christians? The MEDIA IS SILENT!
There is a genocide waging across this planet. Christians are being wiped out by radical Islamic Terrorist throughout the Middle East. The Ten Commandments, are now considered offensive, despite the fact that they are the basis of Western Civilization. Christians can be targeted and gunned down in the Streets of the United States and all we hear about is President Obama running his mouth about wanting more gun control. We hear a man spewing ignorant filth from his mouth push his radical agenda, while the blood of innocents flows through the streets.
I am sorry, if you were hoping to have more time before this country plunged into darkness, it is too late. The darkness has arrived. Now is not the time to start preparing. Now is the time to stand. Take the hand of your neighbor, hold them close. Pray to God for Strength, and stand.

Evil thrives when good men do nothing. However, Demons Run when good men go to war. It is time to stand up, and speak out against this madness. It is time to unite against the insanity. Christians, Jews, Muslims, rational minded people, stand up. We must hang together, or we will burn separately. Why do religious affects bother atheists? If they don’t believe in God, these are just stone slabs. Stand up, and speak out. Reach out to your neighbors. Rebuild your community. Only through the strength granted to us through unity, can we weather this storm. The path laid out by progressive thugs like President Obama can only end in disaster.
I am a Christian.

God Bless you all.

President Obama blamed Republicans for the violence in Baltimore, he stated, “I’m under no illusion that under this Congress we’re going to get massive investments in urban communities.” Now I addressed my feelings on this comment in the previous post, but I feel like it is necessary to more thoroughly expand on the egregious misunderstanding of what can only amount to an assumption of success in the War on Poverty.

President Lyndon B. Johnson declared a war on poverty on January 8th, 1964. Basically President Johnson had this idea known as the “Great Society”. Where in the government would expand its role in education and healthcare as a way to fight poverty. Basically government “investment”, to fight poverty. Sounds familiar doesn’t it. So it was with the best of intentions that the progressives led the federal government into the war.

The question that I have to ask, how much has the federal government spent to fight poverty? In 2012 the federal government spent $668 billion funding 126 different anti-poverty programs. State governments kicked in $284 billion, bringing the total up to almost $1,000,000,000,000 in anti-poverty funding. That amounts to $20,610 per poor person in the United States. That is just for 2012. We have been fighting this war for 50 years. Over the last five decades the government has spent $16,000,000,000,000 (16 trillion) on fighting poverty.

We have spent 16 trillion dollars fighting poverty, to put that in perspective, that works out to 88.88% of our national debt. Lets compare the War on Poverty to other wars that we have fought. The prices are adjusted for inflation.

World War I: $334,000,000,000
World War II: $4,104,000,000,000
Korea: $341,000,000,000
Vietnam: $950,000,000,000
Persian Gulf War: $102,000,000,000
Iraq: $757,000,000,000
Afghanistan: $321,000,000,000
Grand Total———$6,727,000,000,000

From 1917 through 2010 the United States of America has spent $6.727 trillion dollars fighting Nazi’s, Communists, the Empire of Japan, and Al-Qaeda.  That works out to 42% the cost of the war on poverty.  The question now is, we know how successful our military is, using progressive logic, I can only assume great things.  In 50 years, the war on poverty has spent more than double what our military has fighting wars in the last 93.

So what has been the result of our $16 trillion dollar investment?

In 1964 the national poverty rate in the United States of America stood at a staggering 19% when Johnson gave his speech. Now the poverty rate sits at 15% of the population.  Sixteen Trillion dollars, and the poverty rate has only dropped four points? Those numbers are hardly something to point at an proclaim success.

Of course, progressives will point towards early success with the war on poverty.  Most likely they will blame changes to welfare programs made in the 80’s and 90’s for the lack, or dare I say reversal of progress. They will point out how when the war was declared poverty was at 19%, and by 1967 the poverty rate had dropped to 14%.  That is amazing, the government started investing money to fight poverty, and in just three years was able to bring the rate from 19% down to 14%, an amazing drop of 5 points in four years.  That does sound very impressive.  The question I have to ask is, was that drop caused by the War on Poverty, or was it caused by other factors?

Trends are things that progressives often over look. They slap on blinders and only look at the information directly in front of them, thus missing the bigger picture.  I would be very impressed if just by increasing government spending poverty went down, however, that is simply not the case. I can easily prove it to you. With two simple statistics.

President Johnson announced the War on Poverty January 8th, 1964, the poverty rate stood at 19%

In 1965 the first programs in the War on Poverty started taking affect, the poverty rate was at 17.3%

So between 1964 and 1965 there was no increase in spending, no new programs brought online to fight poverty. Yet, despite this lack of government intervention the poverty rate dropped 1.7%.  Now, if one has an open mind, one must question whether or not it the government’s new programs really affected the poverty rate? Did the War on Poverty really result in the poverty rate dropping to 14%?

Again I return to the concepts of trends. Studying the trends in the poverty rate is a very effective way to see the results of the War on Poverty on the poverty rate.  If President Johnson’s programs were effective in combating poverty, one would expect the trend prior to their enactment to look one of two ways. Either the rate was climbing prior to 1965, or the rate was flat (also called stagnate).  So what was the trend prior to President Johnson’s bold new stance?

Well in 1950 the poverty rate was at a truly shameful 30%. Now of course we were still clawing our way out of the Great Depression, World War II was still a very recent memory, so it is not surprising that the rate was so high.   The poverty rate peaked in 1955, and began a downward trend that lasted into the 1970’s.  The rate did not suddenly increase after 1965 either.

So the poverty rate was already decreasing, prior to the War on Poverty, and showed little signs of being affected after it began.  The only conclusion one could make is that the War on Poverty has had little impact on the nation as a whole, other than increasing the federal debt.

The rate bottomed out at around 11% in the 1970’s and slowly rose back to between 14 and 15% over the next thirty years. Thus, the natural reaction from progressives would be to point to changes in welfare programs made in the 80’s and 90’s (of course, blame Republicans).  However, that is not really a fair or accurate assessment. The rate started climbing well before Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, or Bill Clinton had a chance to administer welfare reform. Nor is it accurate to blame lack of funding for a lack of progress.

President Obama has called for new investments in our urban communities, well when I say called for what I mean is he is currently blaming Republicans for not acting on an agenda item he has yet to put forth.  So, basically, we are operating under the assumption that we are not spending enough money to fight poverty.  Don’t worry that in 2012 alone we spent more money than it took to defeat Germany in World War One.

Mr. President we are spending more than enough to fight poverty, spending that defies justification. Today the United States Federal Government is spending 16 times more money (adjusted for inflation) on means-tested welfare and anti-poverty programs than it was in 1965.  16 times more funding, for no results.  I mean I would expect the rate to be near zero by now with that much money being pumped into the economy. Isn’t that how it works, the government takes money from tax payers, gives it to other people, they then re-invest it, thus growing the economy? I am pretty sure that is the basic concept of progressive economics.  Why hasn’t it worked?

Well the answer is the same as with every other failed progressive policy. The problem is not that there is not enough government, but rather there is an issue within society.  People in inner cities are growing up in broken homes, going to broken schools, and have little hope to break the cycle. The War on Poverty has done nothing to actually help these people. Sure it has eased the pain, but morphine does not set a broken bone, alcohol does not heal a broken heart, and government spending cannot cure poverty.

50 years of fighting, and nothing to show for it. 50 years of spending, and the needle remains stuck. 50 years of fighting and the poorest amongst us remain stagnate.  President Obama apparently does not know the definition of insanity, for the benefit of you progressives out there, the definition of insanity is “trying the same thing over and over again, expecting a different result”.  We have tried spending, we have tried the mighty hand of big government.  It is time to try something else.

Money is not the problem, culture is the problem. Until you address the crumbling culture in this country you will not be able to make a meaningful change in the poverty rate. People need to start taking personal responsibility for their actions. People like Al Sharpton need to stop instigating riots for political gain.  People like President Obama need to stop attacking the fabric of this nation, and start attacking the virus that is attacking it.  Of course he won’t do that, and Al Sharpton won’t either.  They require the poor to be dependent upon the government for survival. They want the poor to think that those who don’t support radical socialist agendas are out to keep them in the dirt.  They want people to be subservient to the government, it ensures their power.

It is sickening. The War on Poverty is a failure, big government spending is not the answer.  We need a cultural revival in this nation. A return to the concepts of the 50’s, a mother and a father, raising their children, being strong role models, guiding their kids down the proper path.  We need more parents like the lady who went off on her son for being at the Baltimore riots. Strong morals, strong ethics are what this country needs, and that is never going to come from corrupt thugs like President Barack Obama.

The riots in Baltimore are the sad side effect of the blatant racism that is allowed to run rampant a crossed this country. Sadly I have come to the firm conclusion that these riots are the product of shameless monsters who actually seek out tragedies so as to exploit them to maintain the racial tension that exists in this country. When I hear the media describe what happened in Baltimore or Ferguson as a White Cop killing a Black Man, I know they do not care about the cop killing the man. The headline to them is White Man kills Black Man. They might as well have just said “KKK strikes again”.
Pretty much any time President Obama opens his mouth my blood begins to boil, primarily because every time he opens his mouth he either insults me, assaults my personal values, or spews out pure unadulterated ignorance. Typically when it’s the latter he is putting his nose someplace where it does not belong, and then proceeds to make matters worse.
Well when he stood up to speak out about Baltimore, I should have known better than to listen, I should have known better than to pay it any attention, but I had to, I had to know what he said. When he started his speech, I actually had hope, hope that maybe President Obama was going to buck historical trends, and actually learn from his past mistakes. Maybe he has finally learned how to deal with riots. He stood before the American People and said, “That is not a protest, that is not a statement, it’s people, a handful of people, taking advantage of a situation for their own advantage, and they need to be taken as criminals,” Quite right Mr. President. The people who are destroying property are not protestors, they are not to be praised, they are criminals and criminals deserve to go to prison.
So I thought, wow, President Obama and I agreed on something, I actually contemplated going and winning the lottery, because I honestly figured that I had a great chance of being struck by lightning while turning in a winning lottery ticket than finding something that President Obama and I agreed on.

But……

It was not to last. President Obama could not waste press time to push his agenda. He could not waste this crisis. Rather than trying to heal a nation, he decided it would be best to capitalize on the suffering in Baltimore and use it to blame Republicans for the problems in the world.
President Obama said, “We have seen too many instances of what appears to be police officers interacting with individuals, primarily African-American, often poor, in ways that raise troubling questions.
It comes up, it seems like, once a week, or once every couple of weeks. So I think it’s pretty understandable why the leaders of civil rights organizations, but more importantly, moms and dads across the country would start saying this is a crisis,”
¬It was very interesting watching him speak about this issue. I could tell that his radical side was trying to sneak out; he searched for what felt like hours to find the words Interacting, and Individuals. Honestly though, I cannot believe that President Obama would say something like this. He is physically incapable of making a stand and condemning anyone who isn’t a conservative or a Republican. I honestly feel he would make an excuse for Osama Bin Laden on September 12 before he would think about actually condemning rioters.
This comment that seemingly once a week we are seeing police officers just gunning down innocent children is probably one of the more reckless comments he has made. I mean the last one that I heard of was in Ferguson Missouri where a teenager who had just robbed a convince store attacked a police officer, tried to steal his gun, and was then sadly shot and killed by the officer. There were riots after that incident, but only because the Administration decided they would make a civil rights example out of the officer. Now I have heard of other events between Ferguson and now, but I do not recall people setting fire to police cruisers in the aftermath.
Honestly, let’s look at the issue, President Obama is not citing statistics, he is not citing facts, he is just saying “hey my gut instinct tells me that this is happening more often”. I don’t know if it is happening more often, maybe it is. I doubt it though, I honestly believe that the main reason we are hearing about these incidents more is because we are more connected making it easier to get the information out.
He acts like these riots are peaceful, people even go as far as saying “well they started peacefully”, of course they did, so did World War II. Chamberlain achieved “peace in our time” by giving Adolf Hitler the Sudetenland. Does that mean that Hitler was peaceful? I am not saying that these people are Nazis, but I am saying that you need to call them what they are, and mean it. Stop making excuses for them, or trying to justify their criminal actions.
Now of course we always want our politicians to offer solutions, ways to solve the problem, and don’t you worry President Obama had some. Can you guess what his solution was? Spend more money, and of course blame Republicans.
President Obama actually blamed Republicans for the sociological and economic hardships in our inner cities, he said, and I quote “I’m under no illusion that under this Congress we’re going to get massive investments in urban communities.” Really…. Really… is this honestly a legitimate argument? Does President Obama really think that blaming Republicans is a valid argument?
Let’s forget the racist history of the Democrat Party, let’s forget the concept of a two party system all together. Does President Obama really think that he is less likely to get money for “investments” out of this congress than he was the previous one? Harry Reid ensured that congress did not pass a budget for over four years. Four years without a budget. We had four years of Harry Reid killing any bill that came to the Senate via the House. For Four Years Harry Reid stood as the biggest obstacle to democracy, yet now that the Senate is liberated from his tyranny now it is unlikely that congress will supply funding? Really. … this is a cheap political stunt that defies even President Obama’s low moral standards.
President Obama said, that we have to make investments in our urban communities. We have to break the school to prison pipeline. He then said, “That’s hard. That requires more than just the occasional news report or task force, and there’s a bunch of my agenda that would make a difference right now in that.” WHAT THE HELL HAS HE BEEN WAITING FOR THEN!
Really President Obama what from the Pearly Gates of Heaven to the vast expanse of this good Earth, to the deepest darkest pits of Hell has stop you from pushing this agenda? I want to see the votes where the GOP shut down these measures. I want to see where congress stood in your way of helping the people in these urban communities from 2008-2010. For the first TWO YEARS of President Obama’s presidency he had a super majority in the Senate, and a massive majority in the House. He did not require a single Republican vote to get his agenda done. Why the hell did he not do something then?
Oh that is right he was too busy pushing through healthcare reform that no one wanted. Yes while people suffered in the urban communities, President Obama was too busy passing Obamacare. Too busy stealing from retires whose only mistake was investing in Bonds from General Motors. He was too busy flushing money down the drain in “green energy” firms that collapsed despite billions in tax free money. He was too busy playing golf, too busy going on million dollar vacations, too busy bashing Republicans and defending radical monsters in the middle east, to give a damn about the people in urban communities.
He has no right, no creditability, no legitimate claim to have any moral authority when it comes to this debate. He is one of the people who helped create the violent climate in the inner cities. What do you think community organizers do? He has helped incite the violence that the people in these communities have been forced to suffer through. He has never missed a chance to bash police officers and destroy their creditability. He never misses a chance to blame white people for the struggles of minorities. Remember how far people like Barack Obama reached to turn the Trayvon Martin case into a racial issue. They actually changed George Zimmerman’s race. They created the new classification of “White Hispanic” to make sure the public saw it as a “white man shooting a innocent black child”.
I know radical progressive zealots do not care about facts, they do not care what I have to say. All they will say is “I am a Republican, so I am racists”. I do not care anymore. Look there is racism in this country. President Obama has shown it. He bends over backwards to defend rioters, but called protestors on September 9th, 2009 radical. He loves exploiting race to ensure that minorities terrify minorities. It is sickening.
Who is in charge in Baltimore? Who runs Detroit, New Orleans, Cleveland, or Flint? Progressive Democrats. So Mr. President do not act like it is Republicans who have brought this on the minorities, or have spread the seeds of racism. Republicans have not been ling to minorities for decades, promising to lift them out of poverty, while telling the rest of the nation they are too ignorant to survive without government assistance. Progressives have been promising for decades to help minorities, how much longer is it going to take.
We declared a War on Poverty under Lyndon Johnson, yet despite almost fifty years of government spending, the same percentage of the population still lives in poverty. Billions of government dollars have done nothing. What more is it going to take? How much longer must these people suffer before they stop buying the bullshit spewing from one fascists’ mouth to another?
President Obama told the nation that congress won’t act, so he will. He will break the law, and he will change the world, because only he is smart enough to do it. Congress won’t act, because congress can’t act. Nothing the government does is going to solve the problem.
There is a cultural issue rotting this nation from the inside out. Family values, strong family values are being destroyed. Families can’t spend time together. Families split apart, and children grow up without fathers, or mothers. Our communities are fractured, no longer does neighbor look after neighbor. All of this is the fault of radical progressive theology. More government spending, more government spending, tax the rich, belittle the church, belittle religion, praise eugenics organizations like Planned Parent Hood.
People have to work multiple part time jobs now, why is that? Is that because Republicans cut taxes and reduced regulations? Or would it make more sense that President Obama raising taxes, and you know, PASSING OBAMACARE had more to do with that? Let’s see one option makes it easier and cheaper to do business thus freeing up capital for investment and growth, the other makes it more important to do business, and forces business to push people to part time work? Short of shrinking government, there is nothing that the soulless, shameless wretches in Washington D.C. could possibly do to actually help people in the urban community. They are mostly to blame for the problems.
No, it is up to us, you, me, to do something. It is up to us to fix this problem, to help our friends, to help our neighbors. To stand up and say enough is enough. The government needs to get out of the way, so the economy can grow. We need to stand up and say “no more”, we need to be a community again, united again. United in our faith in one another, our faith in freedom, our faith in the promise of tomorrow.
President Obama only promises unity through hate, and that is what set us on the Road to Baltimore.

Josh Ernest announced Monday, “The president certainly has not indicated any reticence about using his executive authority to try to advance an agenda that benefits middle-class Americans” he then went on to say “This is related to the president’s ability to use his executive authority to do what he thinks is the right thing for the country. The fact is, we haven’t seen a lot of efficient production out of Congress over the last couple of months.” No Mr. Ernest the fact is that President Obama does not have the power to just act unilaterally without the authorization of congress. He can’t just decide that congress has failed, so he will do what he wants. He does not have that power.

I have read Article II of the United States Constitution Article II, for those of you who are unaware (Mr. President you might want to pay attention), outlines the powers of the Executive office. Weirdly nowhere in those powers was there anything about the President being able to change laws, on his own.I then read the amendments made to the Constitutions, and what I found was interesting.The 16th Amendment ratified on February 3, 1913 states,

“The Congress shall have power to la and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.”

I do not see anywhere in that amendment where the President was given power to change the tax code. The executive was not even mentioned.  Actually it very much sounds as though the Executive Branch has nothing to do with determining the tax rates. It sounds as though congress does. The President’s only real way of changing the rates would be to veto legislation from congress sent to his desk. So in fact Mr. Ernest President Obama does not have the power to change the tax code by himself. He does not have the power to close loopholes on his own, he cannot just wave his magic wand and tax people into oblivion. He cannot use the tax code as a weapon against his political enemy. He cannot punish people with the tax code.

The tax code does need to be reformed, the problem is though that President Obama does not want reform. When President Obama says “tax reform” what he means is increasing taxes. He wants more taxes, he wants people to have to pay more towards the government.  He wants to level the playing field by crushing those on top, and leaving the poor begging for scraps.

There is no chance for Tax Reform under President Obama because he will not compromise, he will not act within the confines of the law.  He will not compromise his radical agenda, for the benefit of the American People.

As I covered in my last posting, President Obama vetoed the Keystone XL Pipeline. This actually came as sort of a surprise, because he promised he would veto it, and then he actually did.  This behavior is something unheard of from President Obama, promise something, then follow through on it. I mean “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor”, “if you like your healthcare, you can keep your healthcare” come to mind. The oddities of the Keystone XL Pipeline do not end there. I would like to draw your attention towards another piece of legislation that came to President Obama’s desk. I would like to offer comparison between the two pieces of legislation, and perhaps together we can figure out how President Obama’s mind works.

Keystone XL Pipeline                                                                Obamacare

passed with bipartisan support                                                Passed without a single Republican vote
passed with 68% of the American Public supporting it            Passed with 50% of the public opposing it
Thoroughly debated for six years                                            Ramrodded through congress in one year.
Vetoed                                                                                      signed into law.

So President Obama is completely willing to sign a bill that the majority of Americans do not want, that lacks bipartisan support, after it was shoved down the American Peoples throats in little over a year. That he will sign into law.  So that is where Republicans went wrong. They thought that President Obama would be willing to govern within the consent of the people.  They thought that he was one part of a Representative Republic, which is meant to enact the will of the people.  I guess if they had just cobbled together a bill as quickly as they could, told Democrats to shut up and sit down, and forced it through congress, President Obama probably would have been willing to sign it into law.

President Obama is a thug, and will be remembered in history as a sad pathetic man incapable of enacting any positive changes in the country. His tenure in office has been marked by corruption, political division, and deepening racial divides.  His incompetence and complete unwillingness to compromise will be his legacy.  A sad chapter in American history.  A chapter which thankfully is almost over.
