Posts Tagged ‘obama’

I don’t know about any one else but personally I’m exhausted.  I’m tired of new allegations, new developments, new assertions concerning the lack of integrity, honor, truthfulness and honesty of the current crop of liars, criminals and degenerates inhabiting the halls of government today.  As if for the past 5 years this hasn’t been apparent to those of us who’ve eschewed the “zombie” press, recognizing it as the propaganda arm of the democratic party.  Most of us who recognized long ago that objectivity and journalism have long since parted ways, believe little that is said by those who have been supposedly trained as “objective observers” and are instead news makers instead of news reporters.  I’ve often blogged about this state of affairs so no need to beat that dead horse (PETA, it’s just an expression, go back to hassling the farmers who feed you).

We’ve been inundated with scandals since the 2nd coronation of his majesty obama the inept.  In his first term we had:

Fast and Furious

Black Panther-gate

Vacation-gate

and other smaller missteps that can be attributed to an lack of engagement by this president.  He is simply not connected to the “little people”.  Elitists have that problem almost universally, but this character and his cabal have taken it to new and dizzying heights.

Now, however, well into his second era, not only does the emperor not have any clothes on he doesn’t have any underwear on as well.  This has taken his actions and attitudes from insulting to embarrassing.  Even Europe has become disenchanted with the secular “messiah”.  We have become fatigued by wave after wave of scandal. If I was a conspiracy theorist I might postulate that all of these scandals have been revealed to desensitize us to to the lack of lawfulness that the administration is planning to unveil before this term ends.  Someone, a congressman (not person, this one is male) from New York has already introduced a bill to void the 22nd amendment. You know, the one that limits presidents to two consecutive terms.

Quickly lets run through the scandals flying in the wind at the moment: Hat tip

1. IRS targets Obama’s enemies:  Pro Israel groups and groups with the words “Tea Party, Patriot, Conservative in their names and this was BEFORE the election
2. Benghazi: At the very least there are a multitude of question with this one.
Why wasn’t the mission there protected?
What were our ambassador and CIA operatives doing there ?
Who was in charge during the incident and who gave the stand down order?
Where and what was the president doing throughout the attack?
3. Watching the AP:  Since when does the government have the right to simply scoop up information on citizens without a warrant?
4. Rosengate:  James Rosen (Fox news) identified in a complaint as a criminal. His emails and phones monitored as well as his families.
5. Potential Holder perjury I: Holder signed off on the affidavit on Rosen (see above) but told a Congressional committee under oath ” he had never been associated with ‘potential prosecution’ of a journalist for perjury.”
6. Potential Holder Perjury II: A left over scandal from the emperors 1st term AG Holder testified that he had only recently (May 2012)  learned about Fast and Furious but there is a good deal of solid evidence that he knew about it much before.
7. Sebelius demands payment: Fraud and abuse of her office, involves Health and Human Service Sec. Kathleen Sebelius who apparently was busy shaking down companies for donations.  These of course were companies the department might regulate. She would supposedly use said money to sign up the uninsured to obamacare.
8. The Pigford scandal: Over at the Ag Department reparations were paid to those who supposedly were discriminated against (black farmers) but morphed into a billion dollar debacle where thousands of minority and female farmers who weren’t discriminated against received payments as well. Yep, B as in billion.
9. GSA gone wild: This is the just the tip of the iceberg in DC.  What no one is saying but is in the back of most Americans minds is how many other Departments have done worse.  Outrageous conventions, millions of dollars wasted, bad behavior. What do we have to do to get the adults back in charge in government?

Which brings me to the impetus of my writing this morning.  Pay close attention, it involves some circular thought.

Bob Menendez is a senator from New York (of course).  It was reported that he would visit Dominican Republic to have sex with underaged women.  Some women came forward with that claim, then they said someone paid them to make the claim.  Menendez went to the Dominican Republic with a wealthy donor Dr. Melgen.  It was reported that Menendez was intervened with the government here and in the Dominican Republic when Meglen was facing issues here and there.  Now the FBI is on the case looking for those responsible for “faking the sex story”.  What about the abuse of power and being in the pocket of a wealthy donor?  Nothing out of the ordinary here, move along nothing to see. 

While I realize that waste, fraud and abuse are endemic to Washington DC, I am frustrated that no one seems to care that the FBI and CIA are being used by politicians to escape justice and punish those they disagree with.  They are being used to target “enemies” of the president or those who vocally don’t agree with the present administrations goals and aspirations. They have morphed, in fact, to a  “non military-army” along with agents of the IRS, Treasury, EPA, NSA, TSA and ICE.  These are part of the presidents Civilian Militia.  Who are the other people he has in mind for his “Civilian police force,” where will they come from and who will they be? Who will they report to and what will be their authority? I think we are beginning to see just what he had in mind.
Ben Franklin once said “Those who would give up essential liberties to purchase a little temporary security, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” But who pays attention to old dead white guys now a days?

…..as President and now as a former president.   The George Walker Bush Library was dedicated yesterday.  Five of the last 6 presidents were there for the event.  According to a story in the Washington Times, they ran true to form.

Carter talked about Africa for over three minutes.  He had nothing to say about 911 and the war on terror, apparently that didn’t affect him at all. Maybe he was in Africa then?

George H W Bush a frail 90, spoke from his wheel chair for 24 seconds and received the biggest laugh of the day when he shook his son’s hand after his speech and said “too long?”

Bill Clinton spoke with his al’shucks good ol’ boy bravado.  He told jokes and was the same irreverent wag we’ve come to know and at least tolerate for as long as we have to listen to him.

Obama came next doing his young, humble, obsequious routine. He then gave a stump speech in support of the push for amnesty.  After the preceding nights festivities at a Democratic fundraiser and his preparation for a speech at Planned Parenthood (which was rescheduled) otherwise know as Abortion Central he could be forgiven for not remembering which speech to give to who. After all he didn’t bring his teleprompter.

But it was of course George W that put the class back into the act, which is something you probably won’t hear unless you look for it.  Some of his quotes:

“In democracy, the purpose of public office is not to fulfill personal ambition. Elected officials must serve a cause greater than themselves. The political winds blow left and right, polls rise and fall, supporters come and go. But in the end, leaders are defined by the convictions they hold.

“As president, I tried to act on these principles every day. It wasn’t always easy and it certainly wasn’t always popular … And when our freedom came under attack, we made the tough decisions required to keep the American people safe

and in conclusion,

“It’s the honor of a lifetime to lead a country as brave and as noble as the United States. Whatever challenges come before us, I will always believe our nation’s best day lie ahead.

His voice broke here but he managed after a pause to say “God bless.”

But the final moment was the one that is as true as is the goodness and integrity of this most maligned of presidents.

Sgt. 1st Class Alvy R. Powell Jr. came to the side of the stage to perform the “Star Spangled Banner.” A big, powerful black man, Mr. Powell belted out the anthem. With the crowd applauding, the sergeant moved along the line of people, shaking hands with all. After greeting W, he turned to go. But the 43rd president put his hand on the sergeant’s arm and said, “Stay,” just as a chaplain stepped forward to give a benediction.

So it is with this final act we again see that this man, this good man, this patriot was never the stumbling fool portrayed by the media.  Republican may not have always agreed with him but they knew that he was doing what he thought best for all of America, not for his friends and most certainly not for himself but for all Americans. He was a “public servant” something the others with the exception of his father know absolutely anything about.
