Obama Rewards Unions...Again

"Priority one was serving the interests of the UAW" when the
White House's auto task force engineered the bankruptcy, said Glenn Reynolds, an analyst at CreditSights. The stock offering served to show once again how the White House has handsomely rewarded its political allies, he said

Straight Talk From Allen West

"…we can not allow them to come in to our country and proselytize in their mosques and talking about overthrowing our government, our constitutional democracy, saying they want to replace it with sharia, and then we say that’s ok, that’s freedom of speech, that’s freedom of religion;that’s not, that’s sedition…this is not going away…there are two ways you end the war…you win or you lose…

How do you fight against a guy who is willing to die, you grant him his wish, ok…you kill these guys…"

If this guy ever runs for President, Ted Nugent could be his VP.

Straight Talk on Security

Words of wisdom from Louisiana Governor, and possible Republican presidential candidate, Bobby Jindal who appeared yesterday on "Meet the Press":

...this is about fighting an enemy that hates our way of life...This is a fundamental clash of cultures. ... This isn't, well, let's go and figure out a way to apologize for Americans. This isn't how we offended them because we're supporting Israel"

"You look at some of President Obama's writings, you look at how he talks about, 'Well, we need to understand the disadvantaged background, this is a matter of social justice and more foreign aid.' Nonsense. The analysts have looked at the terrorists that are coming at us of a disproportionate share or educated, come from privileged backgrounds>"

"It's so hard to understand why they're so worried about the terrorists' rights and not our rights," Jindal said. "You go back to the Miranda rights for the underwear bomber. What evidence did they need? I mean they caught him with a device. What was the purpose?"

The Great American Health Care Waver Scam

Republican Senator Pat Roberts comments from the floor last week:

"…I have been shocked by the number of Obamacare waivers that have been coming out of the Department of Health and Human Services. According to the New York Times, one hundred and eleven waivers have been granted to employers to allow them to avoid the new health insurance mandates.

The only thing more shocking than the number of waivers is who is getting them. Would you believe that they are some of the most ardent supporters of health care reform?

Unions like the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), the United Federation of Teachers, and the Transport Workers Union have all applied for and been granted waivers from the rules.

The fact is, Obamacare is bad for business, bad for workers, bad for seniors, and bad for taxpayers."

Rush Limbaugh hits on some of the low water marks coming from the Obama Administration regarding it's health care 'reform':

And here is Michelle Malkin discussing the topic:

I'd be interested to learn of the total number of waver requests, how many are unions compared to the percentage the unions made up of those approved.

Christian Prisoners Used as Organ Donors

Too horrifying to consider what these people went through, an evil so dark compares to the worse events that man has inflicted on their fellow humans.

And who did the Clinton Administration support?

Why does history seem to point out that liberals are always siding with the wrong people? Where are the liberals screeching about an American President using bad and/or twisted intelligence as a prelude to war?

Time For Some Chris Christie Porn

Our country needs more leaders like this man.

Easier to Walk Across Boarder then to Fly to Grandma's House

While Americans are getting personal attention from TSA agents at our airports, those passing though our Southern boarder get a friendly wave from the Obama administration

Religion of Peace

More peace and understanding from our Muslims friends

Meanwhile Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State for President Obama, criticizes our European allies for not being tolerant enough of Islam:

WASHINGTON – US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton criticized Wednesday the state of religious freedom in Europe, as Washington highlighted policies and attitudes toward Muslim veils and Islam as a whole.

“Several European countries have placed harsh restrictions on religious expression,” Clinton said, without elaborating as she unveiled the State Department’s report on international religious freedom for the last year.

Her assistant secretary for human rights, Michael Posner, cited France’s ban on wearing the niqab and other face coverings in public places and a Swiss motion passed last year that bans building new minarets.

Both measures have been criticized as intolerant moves stigmatizing Europe’s growing Muslim population.

Posner acknowledged “growing sensitivity and tension in Europe” over Islam. “What we are urging our European friends to do is to take every measure to try to alleviate that tension,” he added.

The different attitudes toward Muslims in Europe and the United States are the source of frequent tensions and misunderstandings between both sides of the Atlantic.

“We have gone to court in the United States to enforce the right of Muslim women and girls to wear a burqa, and on the streets, in schools, et cetera,” said Posner.

“That’s our position. It’s a position we articulate when we talk to our European friends.”

A Spooky Halloween Stimulus Story

I was at a Halloween costume party, and struck up a conversation with a hippy. At least I believe he was a hippy, he could have been from the '70s TV show 'Mod Squad". It was kind of hard to tell and I didn't consider it proper Halloween etiquette to ask. He had recently moved here after losing his job in California. And the crazy thing was he lost his job due to the stimulus bill.

He was a contractor that was somehow involved with troops preparing to ship out to the war zones of Iraq and Afghanistan. From what I could pick up he was a high end physical trainer that worked with troops for 3 weeks in the California desert educating them and getting them physically ready for deployment. But after the stimulus bill was passed, someone in the government decided they needed to terminate his contract, and the contracts of others doing the same work, so they could 'create' new job doing the exact same thing. But the real beauty of this plan is that because the people who replaced them are government employees, rather then contractors, they receive better pay and full benefits. In fact, the new jobs payed so well the government could afford to hire one new employee for every three contractors. Yep, we traded 1 employee trainer for every 3 contract trainers. So now our troops have 1/3 as many people preparing them for desert deployment then they did prior to Congress passing the stimulus bill. BUT someone in the inner bowels of our government bureaucracy can add to the number of jobs 'created' by the stimulus. These are the same people who want to control our health care system.

The best part: My Halloween hippy friend also told me these new government employees are union members.

How does one make George Bush '43 look good? President Bush '43 has been making the talk circut pushing his book and several people have taken notice of the stark comparison, including The Telegraph from across the pond:

Islamic Fun at School

MALAYSIA’S parliament this week debated whether or not it was right for teachers to cane a 10-year-old boy for bringing pork to school.

The Malaysia Star reported the argument centered on whether the boy, who was caned 10 times across the hand for eating a home-cooked meal of fried rice with pork, is Muslim or Christian. If the boy was Christian he would not have broken any rules by eating pig products.

Angela Jabing said her son Basil was disciplined for eating a non-Halal meal. She is a Christian and her husband, Beginda Minda, has denied being a Muslim.

The Star reported that a decree issued by the National Fatwa Council means that if either parent is Muslim the child must be Muslim.

“I admit I was a Muslim before. But in 1999, I changed my religion. Now I am a non-Muslim,” Beginda said.

The government is now investigating whether Beginda is a Muslim or non-Muslim.

“Only after this can conclusions be drawn on why his son was caned,” said government minister Datuk Seri Nazri Abdul Aziz.

In most Muslim countries, anyone who's father is Muslim is also seen as Muslim by birth regardless of what choices and claims they may make later in life. Unless of course your last name is Obama.

Just For Fun

Obama Trip a Bust

The Emperor comes home with no clothes. From ABC News

From the New York Daily News:

"President Obama is coming home from his overseas trip pretty much empty-handed.

After watching his party take a beating in the midterm elections, Obama wasn’t able to secure even a symbolic victory on a trip that was expected to give him plenty of opportunities to claim a win.

“This certainly was the worst 10 days of his political life,” said Baruch College political scientist Doug Muzzio. “Given that he’s not going to be able to get any domestic achievements with the Republicans in control of the House … if he doesn’t do it in foreign policy that’s a big problem for him.

“He came back with bupkis [Yiddish for 'nothing'].”

Obama’s inauspicious 10-day, four-nation trip included a failure to land an anticipated slam dunk free trade agreement with South Korea.

It also included a botched effort to rally Western allies to press China to budge on a monetary policy that threatens to keep the U.S. economy in the tank.

Yet Obama appeared to shrug off the lack of results during summit meetings with the world’s most powerful leaders.

“Naturally, there’s an instinct to focus on the disagreements, because otherwise, these summits might not be very exciting; it’s just a bunch of world leaders sitting around intervening,” Obama told reporters in South Korea.

“What’s remarkable is that in each of these successive summits we’ve actually made real progress,” he added, without anything of substance to point to."

Even MSNBC Chris Mathews is starting to ask questions:

And the Washington Post goes 'all in', calling on the President not to seek re-election:

"We do not come to this conclusion lightly. But it is clear, we believe, that the president has largely lost the consent of the governed. The midterm elections were effectively a referendum on the Obama presidency. And even if it was not an endorsement of a Republican vision for America, the drubbing the Democrats took was certainly a vote of no confidence in Obama and his party. The president has almost no credibility left with Republicans and little with independents…

Obama can restore the promise of the election by forging a government of national unity, bringing business leaders, Republicans and independents into the fold. But if he is to bring Democrats and Republicans together, the president cannot be seen as an advocate of a particular party, but as somebody who stands above politics, seeking to forge consensus. And yes, the United States will need nothing short of consensus if we are to reduce the deficit and get spending under control, to name but one issue.

Forgoing another term would not render Obama a lame duck. Paradoxically, it would grant him much greater leverage with Republicans and would make it harder for opponents such as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) – who has flatly asserted that his highest priority is to make Obama a one-term president – to be uncooperative.

And for Democrats such as current Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) – who has said that entitlement reform is dead on arrival – the president’s new posture would make it much harder to be inflexible. Given the influence of special interests on the Democratic Party, Obama would be much more effective as a figure who could remain above the political fray. Challenges such as boosting economic growth and reducing the deficit are easier to tackle if you’re not constantly worrying about the reactions of senior citizens, lobbyists and public employee unions."

Final two words: Lame Duck

$535 Million of Taxpayer Money Later...

Here's a big shocker: based upon current market conditions, green jobs are not economically feasible. But for Obama and the Democrats that isn't a problem as long as you and I keep paying taxes.
