The ghastly tyranny of Barack Obama since 2009 has afforded we Americans precious few opportunities to celebrate the vaunted American spirit of Democracy and independence as practiced by the president and the so-called “First Lady” of the land.
To the contrary, Barack and his dour mate have taken like ducks to water when it comes to consumption of extravagant luxury and privilege, with little or no obvious sympathy for the “under” classes and the daily struggles faced by millions of the institutionally non-privileged.
However, in a rare show of laudable contrariness, Michelle Obama took a stand against intractable misogamy in the Muslim nation of Saudi Arabia when she refused to cover her face.
RIYAH — For first lady Michelle Obama, just a few hours in Saudi Arabia were enough to illustrate the stark limitations under which Saudi women live.
Joining President Barack Obama for a condolence visit after the death of the King Abdullah, Mrs. Obama stepped off of Air Force One wearing long pants and a long, brightly colored jacket — but no headscarf.
Under the kingdom's strict dress code for women, Saudi females are required to wear a headscarf and loose, black robes in public. Most women in Saudi Arabia cover their hair and face with a veil known as the niqab. But covering one's head is not required for foreigners, and some Western women choose to forego the headscarf while in Saudi Arabia.
As a delegation of dozens of Saudi officials — all men — greeted the Obamas in Riyadh, some shook hands with Mrs. Obama. Others avoided a handshake but acknowledged the first lady with a nod as they passed by.
Saudi Arabia imposes many restrictions on women on the strict interpretation of Islamic Shariah (shah-REE'-yuh) law known as Wahhabism. Genders are strictly segregated. Women are banned from driving, although there have been campaigns in recent years to lift that ban. Guardianship laws also require women to get permission from a male relative to travel, get married, enroll in higher education or undergo certain surgical procedures.”
Hats off to Mrs. O. for refusing to bow to Islamic bigotry as concerns women and their bare faces.
Now if she can just convince her bone-headed spouse to be reasonable and fair when it comes to the threat posed by Islamic terrorism……...

Through no fault of his own, Darren Wilson, former police officer with the Ferguson, Missouri police department, has seen his name besmirched, his career disrupted, and his future all but ruined .
He was the police officer who shot and killed an unarmed black teen, Michael Brown, last August in an incident that resulted in Wilson being ridiculed and persecuted by millions of Americans, including the president of the United States, Attorney General Eric Holder, and race-baiting profiteers like Al Sharpton, for simply doing his job.
Wilson was portrayed by the biased media as an evil police officer who, without provocation, wiped out a black life for no reason except racism.
Egged on by mainstream media, protesters demanded that Wilson be charged with murder and prosecuted accordingly, notwithstanding his acquittal of wrong doing by a properly constituted grand jury.
Based on apparently false testimony by people who hate police officers, especially white ones, angry mobs took to the streets in Ferguson to protest the Grand Jury decision. Ferguson became a rallying point for those who wish to perpetuate the myth that racism is rampant throughout America and that “people of color” are still enslaved by ignorance and bigotry on the part of Caucasian police and law authorities.
Attorney General Eric Holder personally added to the smoldering flames of suspicion and resentment by announcing that federal civil rights investigations would be conducted, implying that officials in Missouri were too steeped in bigotry to be trusted.
Five months after the tragic death of Michael Brown and the denigration of the police and Grand Jury System, Eric Holder’s Justice Department has completed its investigation.
The result: No civil rights charges against Darren Wilson!
“The Justice Department has begun work on a legal memo recommending no civil rights charges against a white police officer in Ferguson, Mo., who killed an unarmed black teenager in August, law enforcement officials said.
That would close the politically charged case in the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. The investigation by the F.B.I., which is complete, found no evidence to support civil rights charges against the officer, Darren Wilson, the officials said.
A broader civil rights investigation into allegations of discriminatory traffic stops and excessive force by the Ferguson Police Department remains open, however. That investigation could lead to significant changes at the department, which is overwhelmingly white despite serving a city that is mostly black.”
In the meantime, Darren Wilson has voluntarily ended his career with the police department owing to the emotional stress and strain.
The big question: Where does Wilson go to reclaim his good name and put his life back together?
A related question: With respect to the Trayvon Martin case involving George Zimmerman, Eric Holder initiated a similar civil rights investigation.
What are the results of that inquiry?

Barack Obama’s annual play-acting in the form of the State of the Union address is one of the most dreaded political events in America these days.
Under Obama, the SOU has devolved into 60 minutes, or so, of paid political announcements and campaign promises divided roughly as follows:
A: 55 minutes of uninhibited distortions, exaggerations, and outright, damnable lies designed to glorify and give thanksgiving for our all-in-one Messiah, Nobel Peace prize warrior, and Marxist revolutionary for his exceptional wisdom, vision, and transparency-resistant fraud in “fundamentally transforming America” into a 3rdworld failure not dissimilar from the disaster known as Mexico, without arousing suspicion and anger among the “stupid” class of Americans who always vote Democratic,
B: 5 minutes of obviously unachievable promises for Utopian conditions to come, promises that are as vacuous, hollow and without redeeming substance as the promises made beginning with the 2009 SOU and which are the moral equivalent of “if you like your health plan and doctor” idiocy that made MIT shyster and ObamaCare architect Dr. Jonathan Gruber a very wealthy scam artist.
There will be NO mention of warts or black eyes coming from the Obama years. Specifically absent will be any mention of:
( )Re-engagement of the US military in the “dumb” war of Iraq;
( )Surrender and retreat from Afghanistan, the alleged Smart war;
( )Emergence of ISIS as the premier ISLAMIC terror entity on the planet, next to the non-decimated forces of Al-quaeda
( )Non scandals involving the murder of four American ambassadors in Benghazi; IRS targeting of conservative organizations; federal gun running managed from the DOJ as part of the infamous Fast and Furious debacle; exchange of Gitmo terrorists for Bowe Bergdahl; VA meltdown; AP telephone records; and the like.
( )Invasion of Unaccompanied Children from South America;
( )Violation of US Constitution and rule of law, especially with respect to immigration;
( )18 trillion national deficit;
( )Record poverty throughout nation;
( )Racial unrest and turmoil
( )Tens of millions of Americans not in work force!
In sum, rather than being a serious review of the condition of the nation, the SOU will be used to create a false impression of Obama as a champion of the little guy and protector of American values.
If he chose to do so, Obama could reduce his SOU message to an appropriate length by simply following one piece of advise: Limit the damn thing to truth and fact!

Satire by John W. Lillpop
With the possible exception of America’s Communist-majority Democrat party and despicable RINOs like Jeb Bush, Paul Ryan, Lindsey Graham, and others, no institution has contributed as much to the decline and fall of America as the amigos (NOT!) from Mexico who have succeeded in toppling the once- sovereign state of America without so much as firing a single shot!
Indeed, the coup that conquered the world’s greatest Democracy in history was achieved by millions of non-English speaking, illiterate fruit pickers, feted and sponsored by ding-bat American politicians owing to their (the invaders’!) criminal ability to invade the impenetrable fortress otherwise known as America and to pummel the great nation into submission by demanding and receiving free food stamps, welfare, education, health care, voting rights and other perks intended for tax-paying Americans with the audacity to be here legally, and in possession of valid citizenship documents.
Forget the hammer and cycle threat posed by European communists in recent decades! America was under attack from tens of millions of anarchists from south of our borders where the term “Banana republic” is considered hugely complimentary!
Banditos from Mexico and points further south, captured the American Oval Office where the nation’s first certified “person of color” Marxist dictator unilaterally and unlawfully reversed the military results of the US-Mexican war (1846-1848) with a flimsy, unconstitutional decree
that snatched defeat from the jaws of victory and rolled out a huge welcome mat, inscribed in Spanish, for undeserving renegades with Reconquesta on their Tequila-blasted minds!
It was the “Leaf blower” revolt of 2014 and, in essence, the end of civilized culture and polite society in advanced parts of the North American continent!
Along the way, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto presented US dictator Obama with an enticing offer of skills unique to Mexicans: Nieto announced that the finely developed Mexican art of identity theft would be available for use by the Obama administration in securing, or creating, the documents needed to make that which is patently illegal all of a sudden legal and compelling.
“Mexico’s president told President Obama Tuesday that his government will supply the documents necessary for millions of illegal Mexican immigrants to prove they’ve been living in the U.S. prior to 2010, a move that will help them qualify for Mr. Obama’s recently announced deportation amnesty.
In an Oval Office meeting, President Enrique Pena Nieto praised Mr. Obama’s executive action on amnesty as “very intelligent and audacious,” and said his government will do everything in its power to ensure that Mexicans who want to stay in the U.S. can do so.”
Secret service agents assigned to the meeting were quickly whisked away as an impertinent patriot asked Nieto if his administration would endorse Obama’s “very intelligent and audacious” amnesty by granting amnesty to all illegal aliens in Mexico and by tearing down the border fence between Mexico and Guatemala.
To date, press inquiries as to the status of the deposed Secret Service agents have gone unanswered.
More “Transparency” in action, Mr. President?

In recent weeks, New York City police have made clear their intense anger with reckless statements made by Mayor Bill de Blasio concerning the men and women in law enforcement who risk their very lives in defense of the people on a daily basis.
By turning their collective backs on de Blasio during public events, the police have sent a powerful message to the out-of-touch left-wing mayor: Denigrating remarks made by the mayor about police exacerbate the level of distrust and resentment that exists between the public and law enforcement, and may have been causative to the execution-style assassination of two officers in Brooklyn on December 20.
There is another out-of-touch liberal, this one housed in Washington, D.C., who has done great harm to America and who richly deserves to be rebuked publicly by Congress during the State of the Union (SOU)message scheduled for delivery by the anarchist-in-chief next Tuesday.
Barack Hussein Obama has acted willfully, and with malice, to violate the US Constitution by acting unilaterally and against the express will of the United States Congress.
He has issued invalid, unlawful Executive Orders for the express purpose of enacting his own will, without proper respect or acknowledgment of the Congress and we the people.
Obama, the renegade dictator, has made a mockery of the rule of law with boorish behavior more typical in a third-world banana, than in a first- world nation, which is proven leader in democracy, trade, freedom, and culture.
Barack Obama has willfully abandoned strong US allies and embraced our enemies.
Worse of all, Obama has attempted to “fundamentally transform” the most successful example of self-governance in human history, a feat for which he lacks the most basic intellectual, spiritual, and moral, credentials.
In sum, Barack Obama is a dismal failure in all facets of his woe- begotten time in office.
Thus, when his arrival at the US House of Representatives is announced on Tuesday evening, all Republican Senators and Representatives should show their continued support for America and her values by turning their backs to the personage most responsible for the decline of our once great nation.
God Bless America, but God DAMN Barack Obama!
