Obama in 4 Years

Here's a snippet of what some insightful conservative leader will be saying to Barack Hussein Obama in about 4 years.



The parallels of where Britain IS, and where we are GOING is staggering. As Mark Levin said, Barack has the same "callous arrogance" as the current British PM.

Mexico more dangerous than Iraq

CNS News reports that a US representative John Culberson (R-Texas) is making the case that Mexico is more violent than Iraq.

CNS News did some analysis and found the following:

An analysis by CNSNews.com, published earlier this month, showed that the odds of a civilian dying in Ciudad Juarez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua was three times more likely than a civilian dying in Baghdad.

David A. Shirk, director of the Trans-Border Institute at the University of San Diego, said the violence is Mexico is exaggerated in media reports at a House hearing on Tuesday. The per capita rate of civilian killings in the Mexican border city in 2008 was nearly three-and-a-half times (3.4) as great as the per capita rate of civilian killings in the Iraqi province of Baghdad, CNSNews.com has determined, based on State Department statistics and data supplied by an Iraqi civilian-casualty database recommended by the Department of Defense.

In Ciudad Juarez, where drug cartels are fighting with Mexican authorities for control of the city, an estimated 1,800 people were killed in 2008, according to the U.S. State Department.

That equaled one in every 889 residents in a population that the State Department says 1.6 million.



Since 01Jan09, one thousand people have been murdered in drug violence. 7,000 people have been murdered in Mexico since January 2007. Drug cartels have committed to murdering 1 police officer every 48 hours in Ciudad Juarez.

Additionally, the drugs aren't just flowing through Mexico, but much of it now is being consumed inside Mexico.

From National Review:

What’s more, drug use in Mexico itself is widespread and growing; McCaffrey’s report says that chronic drug consumption there has doubled since 2002.

An estimated 20 percent of the cocaine that enters Mexico is consumed locally, and Tijuana’s 1.4 million people are estimated to include 100,000 meth addicts. There’s nothing reform of American drug laws can do to affect this.



Even Hillary Clinton is saying that the violence in Mexico is intolerable.

What can we do? Again from National Review:

1. Finish the fence- It is astonishing that this shovel-ready project that would employ legions of idle construction workers from Michigan, Pennsylvania, and elsewhere isn’t being completed, or even expanded. Instead, the permanent assignment of troops to patrol the border would seem to be unavoidable at this point; the public is way ahead of the elites on this, with a recent poll finding 79 percent of voters in favor of placing the military on the border.

2. Expand state and local cooperation with the feds

3. Keep expanding E-Verify

4. No amnesty- This is important again for two reasons. First, amnesty would give gangsters who are currently illegal immigrants much more freedom of action, comparable to the way the 1986 amnesty gave legal status to Egyptian illegal alien Mahmoud “The Red” Abouhalima, enabling him to freely travel to Afghanistan and receive his terrorist training, then re-enter the country and help lead the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. During the 2007 amnesty debate, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff estimated that 15 to 20 percent of the illegal population would be ineligible because of criminal records among other reasons, a large share of them undoubtedly gang members. While some of these undesirables would surely be screened out, there’s little doubt that the overwhelmed immigration bureaucracy would be pressured into rubber-stamping amnesty applications, granting legal status to many of the 15 to 20 percent identified by Chertoff.

5. Disengage border towns

6. Send in the Marines?

25th District St. Baldrick's

Here's a video compilation from the St. Baldrick's fundraiser on 06 Mar in the 25th District.



Shout outs to all my Peeps!

Rahm's in Hot water

Rahm Emanuel is in hot water again. No, it's not come to light that he didn't pay his taxes - in that respect he's different than many of Obama's other appointees.

The Tribune reports that Emanual worked for Freddie Mac and earned $320,000 for doing almost nothing.

Emanuel's Freddie Mac involvement has been a prominent point on his political résumé, and his healthy payday from the firm has been no secret either.

What is less known, however, is how little he apparently did for his money and how he benefited from the kind of cozy ties between Washington and Wall Street that have fueled the nation's current economic mess.

....Emanuel's Freddie Mac involvement has been a prominent point on his political résumé, and his healthy payday from the firm has been no secret either.

It was just another Chicago-style patronage job for Rahm. If you read the whole Tribune piece you'll see what I mean.

For those of you who don't get it yet, the Democrat lackeys at the helm at Freddie Mac and Ginnie Mae were cooking the books in order to get high level bonuses.

Where are the Senate hearings on what the criminals Franklin Rains, Jaime Gerelick, Jim Johnson, Chris Dodd, and "Heterophobe" Barney Frank did while at Freddie Mac/Ginnie Mae?

We should certainly hope that some sort of committee be launched to investigate Rahm Emanuel and how he benefited from his shady relations at the GSE giant.

Congressional Budget Office:"Obama's budget unsustainable"

Barack Hussein Obama's own Congressional Budget office has predicted some dire news if the president's 3.6 trillion dollar budget gets passed. But the backlash is approaching as word is spreading that the president's financial proposal would produce $9.3 trillion in deficits over the next decade -- or $2.3 trillion more than The Messiah publicly declared.

From Investors Business Daily:

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office says Obama's proposed budget comes up short on its estimates for spending, revenues and deficits — virtually everything.

Over 10 years, the CBO says, the cumulative deficit will reach $9.3 trillion, $2.3 trillion more than expected in the White House budget. Spending would jump permanently to 23% of GDP — and possibly higher — from 20% last year, a $1.7 trillion gain over that time.

Meanwhile, tax revenues will be reduced by $2.1 trillion over the next decade, in large part because the CBO expects the economy to perform far worse than the White House does.

To put it mildly, Congress is alarmed. So is the president.

They're alarmed because their plans call for a historic increase in the size of government, and they've suddenly realized the money won't be there. Washington's broke. The Democrats want nationalized health care, trillion-dollar bailouts and stimulus plans, thousands of pork-barrel projects, an expansion of the welfare state, carbon taxes and more cash for Social Security and Medicare.

The math is clear. In the next five years alone, Obama's budget adds $5.7 trillion to the U.S. debt. That's $48,000 per household. Put in perspective, servicing that debt each year will cost as much as the annual defense budget by the end of the decade.



People are waking up to what a disaster this guy is. Obama and his policies aren't full of "hope and change," they're full of job-kills and economic suicide.

The Detroit Free Press asks this question,“How would you and your family survive if Michigan were to lose another 121,000 jobs and gas prices go up 141% and electricity costs rise 177%? Is your family ready for that additional economic blow?” I suspect the answer is a resounding “no.”

Obama wants to kill our smoke-stack industries: Oil, coal and manufacturing. He thinks that coal, from which we get 50% of our electrical energy, will have to be highly regulated because of its green-house gas emissions. He's using the Global Warming Hoax in order to justify going after our industrial base. We're going to be paying more for oil, gas, electricity and the basic necessities.

Back to the the IDB:

They go on to say "that Since the broad-based Reagan cuts in 1982, the economy has been in recession just 10% of the time, inflation has never gone above 5%, interest rates have never been over 12%, and the stock market — even after two record drops — has averaged gains of 7% a year.

Reagan slashed taxes and simplified the code, and revenues and growth soared. That's what works, as dozens of studies prove.

So if they're sincere, Obama's tax reformers have a choice: follow the tax policies of Reagan and thrive, or those of Carter and fail. To us, it's a no-brainer.


Barack Hussein Obama is a hard-left ideologue. He's not looking to do whatever is good for the country - Obama only wants to help himself, his party, his favorite-pet-constituents (ACORN...et al.) and to ultimately push 51% of the US voting population onto the government dole. That way he'll ensure that people will vote to keep getting government benefits - they'll vote Democratic.

He's attempting the largest societal transformation that this country has ever seen. He only gives lip service to things like "tax cuts", "liberty", and "investment"

He and his team have co-opted the language. Investment is now code for entitlement spending. Tax cuts is code for welfare (since you can't give 95% of people a tax cut when only 40% actually pay!).

His budget also contains provisions to tax your private health care benefits, to eliminate the mortgage interest deduction, and to raise your tax rates if you make over $75,000.

He is a serial liar, no doubt. He's a Statist - all for the State, nothing for the individual.

This is Orwellian and pretty damn scary. I hope the Drones who voted for this wanker are feeling especially pleased with themselves.

Oakland Fallen Officers' Fund

If you want to donate to the families of the four murdered Oakland Police officers, you can follow this link, or use the following information:

In the wake of the killing of four police officers by a lone gunman Saturday, the Oakland Police Officers Association has set up three trust accounts thus far for the families of the fallen officers .

Sgt. Mark Dunakin, 40, of Tracy; Erv Romans, 43, of Danville; and Dan Sakai, 35, of Castro Valley, died Saturday after being shot in two related events by Lovelle Mixon, a 27-year-old parolee. Police later killed Mixon..

Motorcycle officer John Hege, 41, of Concord, was pronounced brain dead at Highland Hospital Sunday morning, police said. A fifth officer, whose name was not released, was grazed in the head and a bullet entered and exited his shoulder. He was treated and released Saturday..

Anyone who would like to make a contribution to trust funds set up for the families may do so by two methods — wire transfer or by check..

Wire transfers may be made directly to the following Merrill Lynch accounts: The Dunakin Children's Family Trust, Acct. No. 204-04065; The Romans Children's Family Trust, Acct. No. 204-04066; and The Sakai Family Trust, Acct. No. 204-04064. No fund had been set up as of Monday afternoon on behalf of Hege, who had no children..

Individual checks can also be made out to the families and mailed to the Oakland Police Officer's Association, Attn: Rennee Hassna, 555 5th Street, Oakland, CA, 94607. Make checks payable to the Dunakin Children's Family Trust; the Romans Children's Family Trust; Sakai Family Trust. ..



But as tragic as this is, the usual ghetto riffraff is now raising its ugly head. Here's a clip from the 24MAR2009 vigil for the four murdered cops.



Some individual named "Lord el Salaam" tells the camera, "The black man and the black woman be tired of being disrespected in they own community - ya know what I'm saying? We tired of being scared of the police, we tired of being attacked, and we tired of being stereotyped."

So what this Nation of Islam member is saying is that the cops got what they deserved.

I'm so sick of these morose, angry, petulant, spoiled rotten, losers opening their mouths and blaming EVERYONE around them for their fucked up pathetic lives. These high-crime communities are high-crime because of the people that live there. Period.

No amount of money, no "stimulus package", no amount of anger management is ever going to impact these communities because people like "Lord el Salaam" are walking around, getting a government check, numbing out through drugs, alcohol and violence - and getting women pregnant - then having nothing to do with them or the off-spring of their union.

The vicious murdering thug that killed those four officers was a career criminal, a rapist and an unrepentant hard-core offender. He shouldn't have ever been released from prison.

The liberals in California have the blood of these officers on their hands. The liberals who passed laws and policies that allow animals like this to roam the streets. They even had a "vigil" for the piece of shit murderer. Story here.

Unreal.

God speed officers. May He support and protect your families during this difficult time.

Americans Polled: Unhandcuff the Police!

A new Rasmussen poll shows that 73% of U.S. voters want police to check immmigration status during traffic stops.

From the article:

Seventy-three percent (73%) of U.S. voters believe that a police officer should automatically check to see if someone is in this country legally when the officer pulls that person over for a traffic violation. Only 21% disagree, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

Sixty-seven percent (67%) of voters also say that if law enforcement officers know of places where immigrants gather to find work, they should sometimes conduct surprise raids to identify and deport illegal immigrants. Twenty-four percent (24%) oppose surprise raids.



And, true to form, 74% of polled Democrats are more concerned with civil rights violations than with checking to see if someone is here illegally. We already know where Democrat leadership is on this topic: Full steam ahead! Their stimulus package includes $104 billion in construction funding. But there is no guarantee that illegals won't pick up the work. Estimates show 300,000 illegals (1 in 7 workers) could get the jobs.

Back to the Rasmussen poll; an astounding 74% think the government is not doing enough to secure the borders.

We know that Obama lied to get elected. He's a serial liar. Here's his "platform" on immigration from his own website (no, I won't link to it.)

* Barack Obama will secure our borders:
Obama and Biden want to preserve the integrity of our borders. They
support additional personnel, infrastructure, and technology on the border and
at our ports of entry.
* Improve our immigration system:
Obama and Biden believe we must fix the dysfunctional immigration bureaucracy
and increase the number of legal immigrants to keep families together and meet
the demand for jobs that employers cannot fill.
* Bring people out of the shadows:
Obama and Biden support a system that requires undocumented immigrants who are
in good standing to pay a fine, learn English, and go to the back of the line
for the opportunity to become citizens.

Has he done any of these? No. Does he probably intend to do any of these? No.

The most outrageous thing about Immigration Enforcement is that it PAYS! By allowing local LEO agencies to question immigration status and get the subjects deported, costs about $60 million per year. (stat here.)

In contrast, ICE spent more than ten times that annual cost -- about $219 million -- last year alone to remove 34,000 aliens under the fugitive operations program.

Black Couple Only Buy from Black BizzNazz

The Tribune reports on an Oak Park couple who "travel far and wide" to patronize only black businesses.

The Andersons are participating in The Ebony Experiment.

The ridiculousness of this endeavor is plainly evident but let me lay out a few of my thoughts.

When I was a youngster, I remember seeing posters around the city proclaiming "Replace Black on Black Crime with Black on Black Love." I don't know what wordsmith came up with such a mellifluous tagline but it made me think: Why not just say "Replace Crime with Love"? The whole thing seemed wrong to me: it smacked of divisiveness, petty envy and racism.

It is the same with this 'campaign'

Why aren't more blacks opening businesses in the Anderson's community? Why indeed.
Is it that there aren't enough governmental programs in place to help the fledgling black-owned enterprise? No - quite the opposite.

Some of the minority small business grant sites are:
FAME Renaissance
Operation HOPE
(US Dept of Commerce) Minority Business Development Agency "More of your tax dollars funding people simply on their race"
National Minority Supplier Development Council

and that's just a few I found after spending 5 minutes doing a Google search.

So the problem isn't money. What else could it be?

Is it education? Mrs. Anderson, in the story, has an MBA from the University of Chicago. There are plenty of well educated people like these two, who happen to be
whack-jobs. The profile of suicide bombers show that the majority are well educated, come from upper-middle class families, and have a narrow view of life.

Gee that kinda sounds like the Andersons!

For you "out of towners" - Oak Park is an Uber-Liberal suburb of Chicago. Austin boulevard is its eastern boundary. Criminals routinely cross Austin, do a robbery, then jump back over the line back to their neighborhood.

So it is no wonder that nobody in their right mind would want to open a business at, near or close to Austin boulevard. You're taking your life in your hands by opening a business over there. The walgreens at 4800 W. North ave loses about $500 per week to just theft, per the manager.

So we see that a qualified and motivated individual wouldn't open a business in Oak Park due to armed robberies and theft - the next question is only logical: If the Anderson's want to "show their love" to their "peeps" then why don't they step up and open their own Black Business?

Very interesting to note, the author of the story claims that someone sent the Andersons a letter accusing them of being "viruently racist" and that the letter-sender refused to patronize black owned businesses. The tact taken by the story's author is that the Andersons aren't being racist, they're just supporting only those people who have the same skin color as them. It can't be the same thing! Don't be silly!

And what is all the rhetoric about these "under-served" communities? They're under-served because no one wants to spend time running a business, shopping or living in a high-crime area. Uh-Duh!

Why don't they step up and start cooperating with the police when they see crime in their blocks? That'd be a good first step.

This story turns my stomach because if you converted the couple into white or asian, the world would be in an uproar about how "racist" they were.

This author says about the same thing and he's vilified as a white supremacist.

Change we can't believe in

More evidence of "hope and change" comes to the forefront.

Via CNS News:

Termite research, walrus rehabilitation and pig manure are among the more than 8,570 of earmarks in the omnibus spending package currently before the Senate. Critics charge the bill is stuffed full of so many pork barrel projects -- $7.7 billion worth -- that President Barack Obama should veto it.

Perhaps the most controversial is a direct earmark for a Hispanic civil-rights group -- the National Council of La Raza -- worth $950,000. The group has been a lighting rod of controversy since it helped organize large protests in 2006 aimed at derailing efforts by conservative congressional Republicans to enforce U.S. immigration laws.


Money for La Raza, money for the corrupt ACORN, money for abortions, money for the radical jihadis at Hamas...

Obama has lurched so far to the left because that's what he is - a leftist. His background, reading sources, friends and associates have been, mostly, radical leftists. Obama wants to destroy this country so he can rebuild it. He wants to transform it into a socialist utopia.

The crap that they're trying to sneak past us is disgusting. It is not change, it is business as usual: Only worse.

But the slobbering media continues their boot-licking - this time it's Pepsi. They are shilling an ad in which they say "Obama will refresh our nation".

And the Drones keep drinking the Pepsi, and the Kool-Aid.

Chicago Tea Party

The boys on the floor of the exchanges are pissed off! They're mad because they see first-hand that Obama's incompetence and Marxist policies are destroying the markets.

Via Diminished Expectations blog - here is the 'clip heard round the world'



As Rick Santelli says,"Who here wants to pay for your neighbor's mortgage who have an extra bathroom and can't pay their bills?"

I like the other guy who says,"Let's none of us pay our mortgage - it's a moral hazard!"

And if the riots start at the Board of Trade, I'd hope that the troops in 001 do the right thing and stand down.

Good stuff! If you aren't mad as hell then you don't fully understand what's going on out there!

Franken Rejected!

Via Michelle Malkin - Al Franken's bid to hijack the Minnesota Supreme Court into placing him in a senate seat was flatly rejected.

Hey Franken - Go fuck yourself!



Obama Appointees: Tax Cheats

Just as I was about to turn off my computer and go do something constructive, I realized that I forgot to mention one more thing about Obama: Is it just a coincidence that so many of his political appointees are tax cheats and frauds?

Tom Daschle, Geithner, Bill Richardson, Killefer, Hilda Solis, and now Ron Kirk.

What do you expect from someone who rose from the swamps of dirty Illinois politics? He's got many a chip to honor in order to pay back those who pushed him up through the ranks of Machine Politics the last 8 years. Obama knew about many of these and tried to push them through anyway.

The most pathetic aspect of these is that if it was you or me, we'd be seeing time in Leavenworth prison. These elites just say,"I forgot" and they get absolution from the slobbering toadies in the press.

Again if these were appointees from a conservative (Republican) president CNN and MSNBC would have the tapes on constant 24 hour rolled loops. We'd never hear the end of it.

As Porcupine RIM puts it - Obama is packing DC with tax cheats in order to establish Affirmative Action for tax dodgers. (Taxes are for suckers, yo!)

I wish Obama would debate Rush....I'd pay to see that no talent ass-clown feel the bite of the MahaRushdie.

Have a good night people. Stay safe.

Rue

The Messiah continues his screw-ups

Glenn Beck walks us through a quick lecture on M1 (US Money supply) and the recent upsurge in the quantity of M1 in the marketplace. What that does is devalues our currency and pushes inflation upward.



It's one thing to disagree with our politicians over policy issues; it is quite another to sit back and watch as our constitution gets shredded, the firewalls within it getting torn down, and our government veering on to a path of utter authoritarianism.

The people that voted for Obama are beginning to wake up to the fact that this is NOT what they voted for. Obama promised "transparency" and pledged to "go line by line" down the federal budget to get rid of ear-marks and pork.

Well not only is there absolutely ZERO transparency to this administration, Obama didn't even allow a full week to pass before demanding that the legislation be signed. Almost none of our legislators read the stimulus package before signing it - how could they? They had 2 days to review 1,076 pages of legislation. It was impossible.

Have you noticed how everything is rush-rush-rush with this guy? Everything is a "crisis" and, as Rahm Emanuel said,"You mustn't let a good crisis go to waste."

It comes down to people. The people in this country either could not, or would not, be bothered to spend a little time doing legitimate research to examine Obama's background and associations. All of this could have been avoided if people had used some common sense and viewed history as a guide.

This "change" has all been tried before: in Cuba, China, Russia and Germany. It is nothing new - just the same old socialist malaise.

They're getting ready to spend $3.7 trillion of YOUR CHILDRENS' money. Do you get it yet?

And when Trixy and Buffy see that they can't deduct their mortgage interest anymore, and have to wait 6 months to get an appointment with a doctor - they'll see that they sold their liberty to participate in a "historic" election.

Disgusting.

14 Year-old Defines Conservatism

I was watching 'CSpan2 - Books' tonight and saw an interview with 14 year old Jonathan Krohn. He penned a book entitled "Define Conservatism". He self-published the first 1,000 copies and was tapped to speak at the recent CPAC conference.

The kid is everything John McCain and his RINO compatriots aren't: Clear, articulate and spot on correct with the ideas and principles that have made this country the "shining beacon on the hill" for well over 200 years.

The four principles of conservatism he defines are 1) Respect for the constitution, 2) Respect for Life, 3) Less government, and 4) Personal responsibility.

It really is a shame that a 14 year old from Georgia gets it, and 70 year old McCain couldn't wrap his head around the simplicity of spouting conservative principles during the campaign.

Here's a snippet of Johnathan in action. Good stuff! Keep fighting, Jonathan. Barack Hussein Obama WILL BE the worst president in American history, and we conservatives will be there in 2012 to put Humpty-Dumpty back together again.



Check out his website here.
