Obama-Free Television: Yes!

By John W. Lillpop

Until very recently, there has been very little that the average non-communist citizen could do to counter the media's mindless and incessant promotion of Barack Obama.

For example, turn on the television first thing in the morning and you will find some left wing retard praising Obama's latest scheme to bankrupt America. Throughout the day, the media run Obama-Thon programming, interrupted only for what seems like an hourly press conference delivered by the president himself.

He is there at breakfast, lunch, dinner, midnight snacks, and he even managed to disrupt the traditional Happy Hour with a "teaching moment" to remind America that his presidency has ushered in the post-racial era.

That is, if you consider an esteemed black professor resisting arrest and screaming like a damn fool at a white police officer who was simply doing his job to be post-racial.

Back to Obamamania.

In just six months, American communications have become All-Obama in television, radio, print, everywhere! He is everywhere, all the time.

Obama this, Obama that, it never ends!

The most annoying Obama promotions are at "alleged" conservative web sites where one would expect to find a respite from Obamamania, if ever so briefly.

Alas, even at right-wing sites, one is haunted by images of our Marxist president. He is everywhere!

However, common sense still prevails hither and yonder. Some patriotic and intelligent Americans are fed up with having Obamamania rammed down their throats all the time.

Take the case of Deloris Nissen. As reported at Newbusters.com, this upstanding woman has taken decisive action to shut down the Obama Bubble Machine in her home:

"A 78-year-old Carroll woman says she's so tired of seeing President Barack Obama on the airwaves that she's selling her television sets - two of them.

Deloris Nissen, a retired nurses' aide and former Kmart employee who was raised on a farm near Audubon, placed a classified advertisement with The Daily Times Herald for Friday's paper.

In the $5.50 ad, Nissen tells readers she has two television sets for sale. The reason: "Obama on every channel and station."

---------

Bravo, Ms. Nissen! Perhaps this patriot has identified a new business sector that can pull the nation out of the deep recession?

What about it investors, moguls, and bankers flush with bail out billions in your pockets?

Why not start an Obama-free communications network to address the niche market of hundreds of millions of folks who have simply reached the gag point with Obamamania?

Give us Obama-free news, weather, and sports in HDTV, and we will gladly pay exorbitant subscription fees. Throw in a Pelosi-free channel and you can double our fees without a squawk.

If the Obama-free folks get desperate for programming, they can always rerun some of former President George W. Bush's mangled speeches. Promote is as classic comedy.

Alternatively, treat viewers to exciting crime programming by re- running the impeachment trial of former President Bill Clinton. Now that would be creative programming!

There is big money to made by the entrepreneur who has the cajoles and brains to give Americans what we desperately seek: Obama-free lives!

Regardless of Where He Was Born, Barack Obama Is No American

By John W. Lillpop

As the kerfuffel concerning President Obama's constitutional eligibility to serve as president rages on and on, we must not forget a more fundamental truth:

By virtue of his Marxist ideology and desire to dismantle or destroy most existing institutions, Barack Obama is no American.

In just over six months, this president has been exposed as the most hateful and dangerous anti-American activist to have ever occupied the White House.

Some of the more outrageous examples of Obama's treasonous behavior since January 20:

* Seized private enterprises & converted to government entities

* Moved to dismantle the homeland security system which has kept America safe since 9/11

* Sought to cut the defense budget in order to help fund social programs

* Ordered closure of GITMO and relocation of terrorists detained there to American cities and towns

* Denounced America and American leaders while on foreign soil

* Apologized for America on numerous occasions, also on foreign soil

* Ignored or shunned strong American allies while cavorting with communist dictators and other enemies of the United States

* Isolated and betrayed the state of Israel

* Signed a trillion dollar stimulus bill that has created very few jobs, but which has caused the deficit to explode

* Proposed adoption of socialized medicine to replace the best health care system in the world at a cost of $1.6 trillion dollars

* Advocates adoption of a trillion dollar global climate bill that will further devastate the American economy

* Bowed to a foreign king

* Refused to secure borders and promised amnesty to invading criminals.

* Referred to law enforcement as behaving "stupidly" for doing their job in the Professor Gates matter

* Declared that America is not a Christian nation


Simply put, Barack Obama does not respect nor honor the values that the majority of Americans hold dear. He seeks to replace "the American way" with socialism and the UN.


Barack Obama is no American!

Diversity: The Ignored Mandate in White House Hiring Practices

By John W. Lillpop

Diversity is the undisputed Holy Grail of the left especially in hiring practices. It trumps experience, talent, work skills, and all other objective measurements of qualifications, at least in the muddled minds of liberals.

Why, then, does President Obama continue to hire journalists only from the left side of the universe?

As reported at newsbusters.com, in part:

"Daren Briscoe, a Newsweek correspondent who was embedded with Barack Obama's 2008 presidential campaign, has taken a job with the Obama administration, according to an email sent to a lists of his classmates at the Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism.

"The email, written by Time reporter and fellow Columbia grad Jay Newton-Small, said Briscoe would be serving as deputy associate director of public affairs for the Office of National Drug Control Policy as of Monday.

"Despite his multiple basketball games with our commander-in-chief, he always brought a skeptical eye to his work and in conversations about the candidate," Newton-Small wrote the email. "

By looking only to the left, President Obama is overlooking some very talented journalists whose perspective is more conservative.

A partial list of conservative luminaries includes:

Jonah Goldberg
Joseph Farah
Judi Mcleod
Rich Lowry
Pat Buchanan
Tony Blankley
Charles Krauthammer
Ann Coulter
Michelle Malkin

Adding any one of these professionals would provide Obama with some much needed fairness and balance in an administration dominated by left wing hillbillies like Robert Gibbs.

Hell, some of the younger conservatives (like Michelle Malkin) might even agree to shoot hoops with Obama and, regardless of the outcome, would be objectively to the right.

After all, Mr. President, "diversity is our greatest strength," is it not?

Can Obama's "Suds Diplomacy" Heal the Gates-Crowley Divide?







By John W. Lillpop

In handling the Professor Gates arrest crisis, President Barack Obama is showing that he is indeed the master of CHANGE, although not always for the good.

After shooting himself in the feet by labeling the Cambridge Police as "stupid" for actually enforcing the law, the president decided to extinguish the national firestorm that he ignited by applying a shot or so of his fabled diplomacy to the situation.

As reported, in part, at the Huffingtonpost, Obama has invited Professor Henry Gates and police sergeant James Crowley to meet at the White House for round one of "suds diplomacy," which may be the most potent tool in the president's racial healing bag:

"There are several reports that the beer diplomacy between President Obama, Cambridge police sergeant James Crowley and Henry Louis Gates Jr. will take place on Thursday.

"The Boston Globe reports: Charles Ogletree, one of Gates's lawyers, tells the Globe that the meeting will be on Thursday and that both Crowley and Gates can bring family members. The White House would not immediately confirm those details."

"When President Obama said last week that the whole incident involving Henry Louis Gates Jr. and Sgt. James Crowley of the Cambridge police department could be worked out over a beer at the White House, he wasn't speaking figuratively. CNN is reporting today that the White House has confirmed that the president is to meet with the two men this week to do just that.

"As Press Secretary Robert Gibbs explained on "Fox News Sunday," "the president believes this can be a teachable moment." And what better way to begin putting things in perspective in the dog days of summer than to serve a cold beer.

"As for drink orders, CNN says Obama will be having a Bud and Crowley a Blue Moon. No word yet on Gates' beverage of choice."

BREAKING NEWS: This reporter has learned that Professor Gates will order "sour grapes" as his drink of choice, a most appropriate selection given the professor's radical views.

Meanwhile, the White House has announced that President Obama has started work on a new book titled, "The Audacity of Booze: Inspired Teaching Methods for Post-Racial America," with release scheduled for November.

A steal at $75 a copy for registered Democrats, $3,240 for Republicans.

Sgt. Crowley is not being left out in the cold, either.

The arresting office is reportedly considering a multiple million-dollar offer to be the "tell all" writer of a scathing documentary, titled "How an Innocent Irish Cop Was Driven to Alcoholism by the US President," a 90-minute special scheduled for release as soon as an innocent Irish cop can be located for the lead!

Now, just who was it that said that Barack Obama is a naive, inexperienced community organizer?

What DOES John Conyers Do When a Bill Is Too Long and Complex?

By John W. Lillpop

Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) made an excellent point recently about the outrageous length and complexity of legislation presented to overwhelmed legislatures.

As reported, in part at Csnnews:

http://www.cnsnews.com/public/content/article.aspx?RsrcID=51610&print=on


"(CNSNews.com) - During his speech at a National Press Club luncheon, House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers (D-Mich.), questioned the point of lawmakers reading the health care bill.

“I love these members, they get up and say, ‘Read the bill,’” said Conyers.
“What good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?”

So, Rep. Conyers, what is a sensible solution?

Should members Vote Yea or Nay based on the political affiliation of the author? In your case, if the bill in question was put together by a Democrat, you don't bother reading the damn thing, but always vote Yea; whereas, for any unwieldy bill originating with a Republican, an automatic Nay vote is the responsible thing to do?

President Obama would surely be disappointed to learn of such practices in this post-partisan era., brought about by his election to the presidency.

On the other hand, the president does not read the God-awful things either and will sign damn near anything costing at least one trillion dollars and intended to make life easier for Jihadists and racial minorities, PROVIDED said bill was crafted by a Democrat!

Alternatively, Congress could hire 1,072 ACLU attorneys to stand by in readiness to provide consultation to the president and Congress on every bill exceeding 1,000 pages. That would be two attorneys for the president and two for each member of Congress.

This procedural enhancement would fit right in because the annual cost would be about one trillion dollars, a number that seems to resonate well with Obama and ding bat liberals!

The only other option would be for a group of reasonable Congress critters to enforce a blockade against long and unwieldy legislation by refusing to vote one way or the other on such bills.

Even that is problematic, though, because there are not enough "reasonable" Congress critters around to make a difference!

Obama's Most Urgent Need: A "Contain Joe Biden" Czar

By John W. Lillpop

Those who worried that a Sarah Palin Vice Presidency would lower the intellectual standards for that high office are discovering that Palin would actually be a major upgrade from the fellow presently in the job.

That would be the affable and damn near clown figure Joe Biden who provides comedic relief for an administration that is in desperate need of a few laughs to offset the melancholy surrounding Obama's rapidly deteriorating presidency.

Over the past six months, Biden has obliged with a number of terrific laughs such as when he undercut Obama's call for calm during the swine flu scare by warning the public against flying in airplanes, riding subways, and other common modes of moving about.

On the economy, Biden undercut the president by declaring that the administration had “misread the economy," at the same time as Obama and other spin doctors were reassuring the media that the stimulus bill was working exactly as planned.

Dabbling in foreign policy just long enough to create mass confusion, Biden stated that, with respect to Israel, "The US "cannot dictate to another sovereign nation what they can and cannot do. Israel can determine for itself - it's a sovereign nation - what's in their interest and what they decide to do relative to Iran and anyone else."

Those charming words were in marked contrast to those of President Obama who advocated keeping Israel on a much tighter leash.

Showing no signs of slowing for the summer vacation season, Biden ignited a fuse in Russia with comments about the Russian economy and the nation's competitiveness with America.

Biden was quoted as saying that Russia's economic difficulties are likely to make the Kremlin more willing to cooperate with the United States on a range of national security issues.

Unfortunately, Biden's words contradict those of President Obama who, while in Russia less than three weeks ago, said that the U.S. wants to see a peaceful and prosperous Russia.

Nice job, Joe. Leave the president to clean up after you at a time when his plate is overflowing.

Clearly, there is a significant manpower shortage in the White House.

What Obama urgently needs is a "Contain Joe Biden" czar. The successful applicant must have significant experience in cleaning up after dumb animals and be well versed in abnormal psychology!

Possible Lessons Learned from Arrest of Professor Gates

By John W. Lillpop

Although many Americans remain skeptical about President Obama's attempt to turn the arrest of Professor Gates into a "teaching moment," it may turn out that the episode contains a treasure cove of lessons learned, provided the involved parties are reasonable and objective.

Possible Lessons Learned:

For President Obama:

With all due respect, sir, we understand that your health care reform proposals are in jeopardy, largely because of dissent from members of your own party, and, more importantly, because facts released by the Congressional Budget Office do not support your justifications for adding $1.6 trillion dollars to the national debt.

Nonetheless, sir, it seems unfair to convert the arrest of a black professor into a national furor by declaring that the police acted "stupidly," in order to manipulate the news.

Further, your comment seems particularly inappropriate since you have admitted that you were not at the scene and were not familiar with all the details.

Again, with all due respect, I wonder how you would have reacted if the arresting officer had been a person of color?

Possible Lessons Learned: Avoid using divisive, wedge politics to manipulate news headlines. And take a deep breath and rethink the health care issue before adding to the national debt.


For Professor Gates:

Nearly everyone agrees that African Americans have suffered enormously because of slavery and discrimination in education, employment, and housing. There is a national sense of shame and regret for that tragic part of American history.

On the other hand, enormous strides have been made as evidenced by the election of your friend, Barack Obama. America is not perfect and never will be; however, its pretty damn good compared to conditions in other nations of the world.

The rule of law should apply to everyone, even esteemed professors. After all, law enforcement people took actions to protect what turned out to be YOUR property.

A little gratitude, rather than hostility, would be helpful.

With all due respect, I wonder how you would have reacted if the arresting officer had been a person of color? Would you have refused to come out of your home and been as outraged and uncooperative as you were with Sgt. James Crowley?

Possible Lesson Learned: Racial profiling is abhorrent when used to harm people of color and is equally wrong when used by people of color against white law enforcement authorities.


For Sgt. James Crowley

So far, the facts appear to support your decision to act as you did. There was no obvious racial profiling on your part. In fact, you appear to have been a victim of profiling.

Possible Lesson Learned:

Doing the right thing should never be a difficult decision. When a professional, trained police officer determines that criminal acts have been committed, said officer should use due diligence in enforcing the law based on the available facts.


For our political leaders and law makers, let this episode serve as notice that "racial profiling" can go both ways, and can be abused in order to obscure common sense.

A Teaching Moment?


By John W. Lillpop


President Obama, in a predictable, but feeble, attempt to reboot his tattered image as healer of racial discord, has decided that a straightforward, put this matter to bed apology to Sgt. James Crowley is not appropriate.

Sgt. Crowley is the police officer who arrested Henry Louis Gates Jr. in his own home based on a 911 call and other evidence of a break in at the home.

President Obama set off a firestorm when he described the arrest of Gates as"stupid," even though he admitted to not knowing the facts involved and disclosed a possible bias on his part because Gates "is a friend," whom is also black.

With his leftist spin doctors and race peddlers working 24/7 since Obama's foolish comment, a new strategy has emerged: Let's exploit this widely covered story as a "teaching moment."

Just what lessons would Barack Obama and Henry Louis Gates Jr. propose?

How about something like this?


* Police officers must always be mindful that people of color have suffered centuries of abuse and discrimination and are entitled to special treatment.

* The notion that America is color blind when it comes to law and order is an old school myth that must be dismissed and replaced with the modern credo which holds that a person of color is automatically entitled to be treated differently in crime situations.

* In the Gates arrest, before handcuffing what appeared to be a burglar, Crowley should have noticed that Gates was a person of color and thus exempt from handcuffing and other degrading painful reminders of the chains that were used to contain Gates' great grandfather while being shipped to America as a slave.

* Rather than automatically assuming that the owner of an upscale property that had been broken into was Caucasian, Sgt. Crowley should have assumed that Gates was the rightful owner because he is a person of color.

* The fact that a professional police officer was suspicious of Gates because evidence suggested that Gates appeared to be involved in a crime is unconstitutional.

* Rather, Sgt. Crowley's first thought should have been about leaky ships loaded with black, handcuffed prisoners on their way to Alabama to serve as slaves.

Crowley should have shown empathy for Gates and should have offered the professor a cigarette and a cup of coffee. Instead of handcuffs.

The new golden rule in law enforcement: People of color must be assumed to be innocent as a result of their heritage and their ancestors suffering at the hands of slavery, Jim Crow laws, discrimination, and the like dished out by wicked white folks. Evidence is irrelevant because of the rampant racism that exists in white people like Sgt. Crowley.

Bottom Line: Do not arrest or even suspect a person of color of any crime regardless of the evidence.

Can the American people just say no to this "teaching moment" garbage?

Is CBO Intent on Destroying the Obama Presidency?

By John W. Lillpop


As the facts about health care reform are scrutinized by reasonable people and measured against reality, support for President Obama's plans has evaporated, or at least diminished significantly.

In response, Obama has tried to blame his declining fortunes on Republicans like Jim DeMint (R-SC) whom the president claims are using "scare tactics" and misinformation to counter his signature initiative.

The irony is that Obama is issuing all sorts of dire warnings about the consequences of not acting NOW on the Democrats' proposals.

Unfortunately for the president, the most potent critics of Obamacare originate with Blue Dog Democrats and even more importantly, the Congressional Budget Office (CB).

As reported, in part, at Politico.com:

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0709/25415.html

"For the second time this month, congressional budget analysts have dealt a blow to the Democrat's health reform efforts, this time by saying a plan touted by the White House as crucial to paying for the bill would actually save almost no money over 10 years.

"A key House chairman and moderate House Democrats on Tuesday agreed to a White House-backed proposal that would give an outside panel the power to make cuts to government-financed health care programs. White House budget director Peter Orszag declared the plan "probably the most important piece that can be added" to the House's health care reform legislation.

"But on Saturday, the Congressional Budget Office said the proposal to give an independent panel the power to keep Medicare spending in check would only save about $2 billion over 10 years- a drop in the bucket compared to the bill's $1 trillion price tag. "

Given the fact that there is so much informed opposition to the Obamacare package, one wonders why the president does not take a long, deep breath, and cogitate on this huge issue, with input from others, before throwing another $1.6 trillion down the drain?

Part of Obama's campaign rhetoric was how cool, calm and collected candidate Obama was. For example during the economic meltdown last fall, John McCain suggested that a scheduled Obama-McCain debate be canceled so that both candidates could return to Washington, D.C. to deal with the crisis.

Obama asserted his "cool and calm" approach and insisted that the debate go on as scheduled.

What happened to all that cool and calm demeanor now that Obama is president? Why does he demand that trillion dollar measures be adopted without considering the consequences, instead relying on fairy tale concepts of hope and change ?

Is Barack Obama working to destroy his own presidency?

Obama Should Listen to Bill Cosby: Keep Mouth Shut!











By John W. Lillpop

Recent events suggest that if there is a "Waterloo" moment for President Obama, it will be a direct result of his inexperience and unwise behavior.

Indeed, the president seems quite capable of "destroying my presidency" on his own, without help from Senator DeMint, other Republicans, or Blue Dog Democrats.

The latest evidence of that is the political firestorm caused by Obama's foolish comment about police stupidity in the arrest of Professor Gates. That unnecessary remark leads one to question not only Obama's constitutional eligibility to be president, but his qualifications in terms of judgment as well.

Is this fellow up to be being president of the United States? is a question being asked by people who were blinded by Obamamania just a few months ago.

Obama's faux pas has elicited strong words from people whom would normally be considered pro-Obama, such as celebrity Bill Cosby.

As reported as Csmonitor.com, in part:

http://features.csmonitor.com/politics/2009/07/23/bill-cosby-shocked-at-obamas-statement-on-harvard-profs-arrest/


"On a Boston radio program this morning, Bill Cosby suggested that President Obama spoke too soon on the controversial arrest of Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates.

“I’ve heard about five different reports [on the details of the arrest],” Cosby said on Boston’s WZLX. “If I’m the president of the United States, I don’t care how much pressure people want to put on it about race, I’m keeping my mouth shut.”

“I was shocked to hear the president making this kind of statement,” Cosby said."

Later in the day, Cosby backtracked somewhat by giving the president some leeway. Still, Cosby's words reveal just how out of touch President Obama is.

Bottom line: President Obama Should Heed Bill Cosby's Advise and Keep Mouth Shut!

Obama Managing Own Waterloo!

Where All Those Jobs You Promised, Mr. President?








By John W. Lillpop


Back in February, President Obama told Congress and the nation that it was essential that $1 trillion be injected into the American economy to create new jobs and spark economic recovery.

According to the president, passage of the stimulus bill was so urgent that we could not afford to take time for Congress to read the 1,000+-page monster.

We need it NOW to save America, said President Obama at the time.

Five months later, the only thing that the Democrat bill has stimulated is the federal deficit which has exploded out of control and which threatens the economic prosperity of untold generations of Americans not yet born.

Meanwhile the economy continues to hemorrhage jobs at an alarming pace and unemployment may reach 10 percent or higher this summer.

And President Obama's "solution" to America's economic misery is? Spend another $1.6 trillion to reform health care!

According to Obama, fixing health care is central to America's economic recovery.

With all due respect, Mr. President, shouldn't we wait to see if that stimulus bill actually creates any new jobs before throwing another $1.6 trillion on another program that you not familiar with?

Bottom line: What about all those new jobs you promised, Mr. President?

More Leftist Idiocy: Forcing Inferior Health Care on American Citizens in order to Cover Illegal Aliens

By John W. Lillpop

Have liberals lost their collective minds? Perhaps the thrill of having unchecked power has made Democrats oblivious to common sense and reasonable thought?

Whatever the cause, most Democrats, including President Obama, seem intoxicated by their own press clippings and intent on pushing liberal insanity to the max.

For instance, the grotesque health care reform bill in the US House would force hundreds of millions of American citizens into inferior, HMO-type health care in order to cover tens of millions of illegal aliens.

Illegal aliens who have no right to even be in America, much less cared for at the expense of American citizens!

How in the hell can such idiotic thinking originate with any party other than the Communist Party of the United States (CPUS)?

Even more profound, why in the hell is the president of the United States supporting such reform at a time when the national economy is in free fall and the national deficit has exploded as a result of his reckless spending mistakes?

If President Obama and his leftist supporters really cared about American citizens, they would secure our borders and deport every last illegal alien.

To provide health care benefits to invading criminals would be utterly stupid, and would only invite another 20 million or so to invade and our nation.

Wake up President Obama and liberals everywhere: We don't need no stinkin' health care for illegal aliens!

Kick illegal aliens out and focus on protecting and meeting the needs of American citizens, or face deportation from elective office at the hands of American citizens!

Can a "Waterloo" Reckoning Save America?

By John W. Lillpop

Senator Jim DeMint, South Carolina's only genuine Republican now serving in the most deliberative body on the planet, has correctly identified Obamacare as a $1.6 trillion fairy tale (with a bad ending) that would replace the best heath care system in the world with inferior HMO rationing coverage for most Americans.

DeMint is right again in hoping that this outrageous assault on the health care choices and future prosperity of the American people are widely recognized for being a socialist nightmare, AND for hoping that Obamacare is defeated in its tracks.

Note, too, that President Obama has resorted to using "scare tactics" to drum up support for a plan that he admits he is not familiar with! How immature is that?

DeMint is also right on the money in declaring that, if defeated, Obamacare may be a "waterloo" moment that will stop Obama man from inflicting even further harm with foolish and costly actions involving climate change and amensty for invading criminals from Mexico.

After all, in just six months, this administration has broken all records in accumulating trillions of dollars of federal deficit, with one report indicating that a worse-case-scenario could result in a $23 TRILLION deficit as a result of Obama's out of control spending on Marxist causes.

Thank goodness, DeMint's "waterloo" remark has caught the president's attention and that of dim wits on the left who support bankrupting America in order to install socialism.

Which means that DeMint has hit a very sensitive nerve and should continue to attack with every weapon in his arsenal, until Obamacare is declared dead and arrangements have been made for a respectful means to dispose of the remains.

To date, Barack Obama has been the "emperor without clothes" whom the mainstream media and equally naked Democrats have protected.

Bravo to Senator Jim DeMint for having the courage to tell it like it is!

Troop "surge" in Obama's Afghan War: Whither Anti-war Freaks?








By John W. Lillpop

President Obama is slip-sliding further into the quagmire that is Afghanistan by sending an additional 22,000 troops into harms way.

The Obama "surge" was reported, in part, at Google.com:
http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5jcla0ZoFykwTGo9rfk8399BRPKtw

"WASHINGTON — The US Army is to boost its ranks temporarily by up to 22,000 troops to ease the strain of deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, Defense Secretary Robert Gates announced Monday.

"Much has changed over the last two years, causing us to reassess whether we are properly sized to support current operational needs," Gates said, adding that the army would swell to 569,000 soldiers, up from the current 547,000.

"The persistent pace of operations in Iraq and Afghanistan over the last several years has steadily increased the number of troops not available for deployment in the army."

"The military, with President Barack Obama's "strong support," decided that continuing operations in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as political turmoil in Pakistan, meant its ability to fill troop vacancies was "at risk," Gates said.

"According to current deployment estimates, he added, the challenge was a "temporary" one that would peak in the coming year and abate over the next three years.

"Obama has ramped up the US effort in Afghanistan, dispatching 21,000 more troops to fight a mounting Taliban-led insurgency just as the United States draws down in Iraq as part of a bilateral agreement signed last year."

Missing from the account was any expert military analysis by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid warning the president and the American people that the war is "lost."

Perhaps Senator Reid is too busy working on Obama's health care reform, amnesty for illegal aliens, and climate change fiascoes to be bothered with the lives of 22,000 young Americans whom Obama is sending into harms way?

Still, Senator Reid, why not demand a timeline for withdrawal of all troops from that hostile part of the world?

Silence is also deafening from the US House side of the Congress where Shrieker Nancy Pelosi is too busy trying to put the CIA out of business to get her wrinkled old hands sullied with worry over those 22,000 kids, most of whom are probably red-neck Republicans anyway.

Still, Speaker Pelosi, why not demand that Obama announce a definitive plan to bring the troops home by Labor Day or face a cutoff of funding? Leave them stranded in the mountains of Afghanistan!

As the old axiom goes, war is hell. But not nearly as much as the partisan politics played by anti-war freaks running the US Congress.

In Currency Lingo, What Comes After Trillion?





By John W. Lillpop

Seems like just yesterday that conservative and other right-thinking Americans considered one billion dollars an enormous amount of money. Spending that amount on anything except national defense was cause for high alarm and red flags from coast to coast.

That was then, this is now.

The reality now is that America has turned the keys to the US Treasury over to an inexperienced community organizer and bull headed socialist who has no compunctions whatsoever about using taxpayer money to fund his radical agenda.

Even more tragic, American voters have given copies of the Treasury key to Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid who, as congressional leaders are supposed to provide an oversight function to check the Executive branch, but whom, in reality, are just as reckless and irresponsible with taxpayer money as is President Obama.

With liberals in charge of America's money, the predictable result is chaos and ruin.

As reported, in part, at Politico.com, a worse case scenario could ultimately cost the good people of American $23 TRILLION dollars:

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0709/25164.html

" A series of bailouts, bank rescues, and other economic lifelines could end up costing the federal government as much as $23 trillion, the U.S. government’s watchdog over the effort says – a staggering amount that is nearly double the nation’s entire economic output for a year.

"If the feds end up spending that amount, it could be more than the federal government has spent on any single effort in American history.

"For the government to be on the hook for the total amount, worst-case scenarios would have to come to pass in a variety of federal programs, which is unlikely, says Neil Barofsky, the special inspector general for the government’s financial bailout programs, in testimony prepared for delivery to the House oversight committee Tuesday.

"In fact, $23 trillion is more than the total cost of all the wars the United States has ever fought, put together. World War II, for example, cost $4.1 trillion in 2008 dollars, according to the Congressional Research Service.

"Even the Moon landings and the didn’t come close to $23 trillion: the Moon shot in 1969 cost an estimated $237 billion in current dollars, and the entire Depression-era Roosevelt relief program came in at $500 billion, according to Jim Bianco of Bianco Research."

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

With that staggering amount of debt, or anything even close, facing the nation in the midst of a brutal recession, one would expect a reasonably intelligent, highly-educated president to put his liberal agenda on hold until the nation has had a chance to catch it's collective breath and think through all of the options.

Instead, Barack Obama continues to push radical health care reform, amnesty for illegal aliens, and radical climate change legislation, all of which will cost trillions of dollars that this nation simply does not have.

What will it take to get President Obama to step back and apply some common sense to America's financial challenges?

Unless that question is answered soon, we may soon be asking: What comes after trillion?

CIA Had Plans to Do WHAT to Al-Qaeda Leaders?




By John W. Lillpop

President George W. Bush was not my favorite president, mostly because of his mind-numbing policies on illegal aliens and his failure to stop out of control spending.

However, no one can accuse W. of shortchanging the American people when it came to fighting the war on terror in Iraq and Afghanistan so as to keep the streets of Atlanta and Los Angeles safe.

Safe, except, of course, for the millions of invading criminals from Mexico whom marched to demand amnesty and all of the perks that accrue to citizens. This, we were reminded in Spanish, was their "right" for risking their very lives and limbs in the hot, lonely desert to invade our sovereign land.

Which is about as logical as a captured bank robber demanding that all charges against him be dropped and that his freedom be restored immediately because of the significant risk involved in staging an armed robbery.

Aside from W.'s border myopia, the president was diligent in defending America against another terrorist attack,

That diligence paid off because Bush's policies kept America safe for seven plus years after the agonizing events of 9/11, a fact that liberals like to ignore when trashing the former president.

Note, please, that liberals become particularly venomous in their attacks on W. following further evidence indicating that the only jobs created by Obamanomics are in unemployment offices, food stamp centers, and welfare distribution sites.

For example, when the news recently included evidence that the economy was not in recovery and that the federal deficit, caused by liberal spending, was unsustainable, Team Obama dragged out the CIA canard to distract the public from the bread and butter issues of the day.

As reported, in part, at the Wall Street Journal:

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124752710888335275.html


"WASHINGTON -- A secret Central Intelligence Agency initiative axed by Director Leon Panetta examined how to assassinate members of al Qaeda with hit teams on the ground, according to current and former national-security officials familiar with the matter

"The goal was to assemble teams of CIA and special-operations forces "and put bullets in [the al Qaeda leaders'] heads," one former intelligence official said."


===

Killing Al-Qaeda leaders was actually an initiative fostered within the CIA?

Oh, My Goodness, our government was being proactive in protecting the interest of Americans against the thugs who killed 3,000 of us on September 11!

Hurrah, and hurrah again, to W. and the CIA for targeting the outlaws whom started the war on terror!

But, hold on a minute.

W. is gone and we now have a community organizer-appeaser in the Oval Office. A fellow who is so naive as to believe that a silver-tongued black man, like himself, can talk the evil right out of those terrorist thugs!

With Obamamania at the ready, we no longer need shock and awe military campaigns. Kinder and gentler is the MO these days.

The referenced article continues:

"The plan was never carried out, and Mr. Panetta canceled the effort on the day he learned of it, June 23. The next day, he alerted Congress, which didn't know about the plan


"The agency hasn't discussed publicly the nature of the effort, which remains classified," said agency spokesman Paul Gimigliano. The Wall Street Journal reported Monday the effort stemmed from a presidential order dated September 2001 that directed the CIA to find ways to kill or capture al Qaeda leaders.

"The revelation has intensified a growing battle between the executive branch and Congress over the conduct of the CIA and U.S. intelligence operations.

"Democrats in Congress are calling for an investigation into whether or not it was properly briefed on the matter."


==

Why waste time and money to investigate the CIA? Boneheads like Nancy Pelosi will simply lie or deny, or both.

Still, from the perspective of Democrats, besmirching the image of the CIA provides a terrific cover for the complete failure of Obamanomics, AND for Nancy Pelosi's stuttering and stammering about her briefing on Enhanced Interrogation Techniques, including waterboarding.

Liberals are counting on headlines that scream, "CIA Plans to Murder Foreign Leaders Exposed!"

President Obama will then announce that his administration "inherited" an evil, unconstitutional practice more suitable for a gang of Chicago mobsters than a respected and professional department of the United States government.

Obama will also announce that the CIA has been reorganized under Janet Napolitano at Homeland Security and that transparency, not secrecy, is the new gold standard for our intelligence communities.

Finally, the president will formally apologize to all Al-Qaeda terrorists who might have been targeted by the CIA. And although the CIA did not actually kill any terrorists, Obama will announce a program of reparations to compensate Al-Qaeda family members for any stress caused by the CIA.

That dilly will cost the government $1 trillion dollars, which will paid for by a new federal 25 percent surtax on bullets and handguns!

Which leads to the following urgent question that should be asked of Barack Obama:

Mr. President, when will you acknowledge that your administration "inherited" a system of defense and security that kept this nation safe for seven plus years, and when will you stop destroying that proven defense?

America Needs Tougher Death Penalty Laws, Not More Gun Control

By John W. Lillpop


In 1993, Adrian J. Gilliam Jr., 33, of LaVergne, Tennessee, was convicted in Florida for murder and attempted-armed robbery. Unfortunately, Gilliam was not put to death for his crime, for whatever reason.

Consequently, convicted murderer Gilliam was around to sell the weapon to the woman who murdered NFL legend Steve McNair,

As reported, in part, at Yahoonews:

http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slug=ap-mcnair-gunarrest&prov=ap&type=lgns

"NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP)—Federal prosecutors announced gun charges Friday against a convicted murderer who admitted he sold the pistol that was used to kill ex-NFL quarterback Steve McNair.

"Adrian J. Gilliam Jr., 33, of LaVergne, Tenn., was arrested by agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.

"He is charged with being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm. Conviction could bring a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000, federal prosecutors said.

"A criminal complaint says that Gilliam—who was convicted in 1993 in Florida for murder and attempted armed robbery—told police he sold the gun to the woman who later shot McNair."

"McNair was shot to death on July 4 at his condo by his 20-year-old mistress, Sahel Kazemi, who then turned the gun on herself."

Naturally, nut balls eager to eliminate the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution immediately blame the availability of guns for McNair's murder.

However, if Gilliam had paid the price for murder with his own miserable life, Steve McNair would still be alive.

Wake up, America! We need tougher, much tougher laws on the death penalty rather than more gun controls.

Guns do not kill people--convicted felons like Gilliam do, or aid and abet in such!

Can Blue Dog Democrats Save America from Terminal Liberalism?





By John W. Lillpop

Liberalism is, and has always been, a mindless bit of insanity that always results in more harm than good.

That dreary prognosis is certainly applicable to the dangerous programs and policies advanced by leftists currently running the White House and both chambers of the Congress.

Once again, liberals have attempted to spend their way out of a complex problem and the result is most predictable: The American economy is deteriorating more and more while the federal deficit explodes.

Nothing President Obama and liberal Democrats have tried has worked. Nothing.

From Obama's goofy plans to shut down GITMO without thinking about what to do with the world class terrorists housed there, to the trillion dollar stimulus fiasco which was so urgent that there was no time for Congress to read the bill, President Obama's heralded CHANGE has failed to produce a single positive result.

While millions of jobs are lost to the withering effect of Obamanomics, the reckless and wild spending by liberals has caused the deficit to explode.

As reported at google.com, in part:

http://www.google.com/hostednews/ukpress/article/ALeqM5hrIHTN_1_szqyV1lZDfVCl6cNKpA

"The US federal deficit topped one trillion US dollars for the first time ever and could grow to nearly two trillion by this autumn, intensifying fears about higher interest rates, inflation and the strength of the dollar.

"The deficit has been widened by the huge sum the government has spent to ease the recession, combined with a sharp decline in tax revenues.

"The cost of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan also is a major factor.

"The soaring deficit is making Chinese and other foreign buyers of US debt nervous, which could make them reluctant lenders down the road. It could also force the Treasury Department to pay higher interest rates to make US debt attractive longer-term.

"These are mind-boggling numbers," said Sung Won Sohn, an economist at the Smith School of Business at California State University. "Our foreign investors from China and elsewhere are starting to have concerns about not only the value of the dollar but how safe their investments will be in the long run."

"The Treasury Department said that the deficit in June totaled 94.3 billion US dollars, pushing the total since the budget year started in October to 1.09 trillion US dollars. The administration forecasts that the deficit for the entire year will hit 1.84 trillion US dollars in October."


Given the fact that NOTHING THIS PRESIDENT HAS TRIED SO FAR HAS WORKED, one would expect this bright and energetic man to step back, take a deep, long breath, and THINK before continuing with a strategy that is obviously flawed.

However, rather than stopping to think, President Obama is working 24/7 to add even more trillions to the national deficit with radical reforms in health care, the climate change bill, and amnesty for millions of invading criminals from south of our borders.

Each of these legislative actions would add trillions of dollars to the federal deficit without producing positive results for the American people.

Spending money without intelligent planning is a curse of liberal thinking that this administration appears destined to repeat.

So that means that America is doomed to become a third world nation and all is lost, right?

Not necessarily.

Although the likes of Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Teddy Kennedy, and Barney Frank pose a significant risk to the financial and moral health of our nation, there are Democrats who still believe in common sense and fiscal restraint.

That would be the blue dog coalition, perhaps the only collection of Americans that can save the day.

As reported at nasqaq, in part:

"By Martin Vaughan, Of DOW JONES NEWSWIRES

"WASHINGTON -(Dow Jones)- U.S. Rep. Mike Ross, D-Ark., a leader of fiscally conservative House Democrats, said Wednesday a House plan to overhaul the U.S. health-care system is losing support and will be stuck in committee without changes.

"Last time I checked, it takes seven Democrats to stop a bill in the Energy and Commerce Committee," Ross told reporters after a House vote. "We had seven against it last Friday; we have 10 today."

"Three House committees are slated to begin considering the $1 trillion-plus bill this week, but the Energy and Commerce looms as the biggest challenge. That's because it counts among its 36 Democratic members seven members of the Blue Dog Coalition, a fiscally conservative bloc that is opposing the House Democrats' effort.

"Ross said the bill, introduced Wednesday by House Democratic leaders, doesn't include provisions adequate to curb rising health care costs, including what the government spends on healthcare.

"The current bill would have to be substantially amended before we could consider supporting it," Ross said.

"Ross said Blue Dogs have been meeting every day to craft amendments that will be offered during that meeting, but offered no details on what those amendments are. He said those amendments could number in the dozens.

"Ross said he expects Blue Dogs will meet with the panel's chairman, Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., soon to discuss their specific proposed changes."


Will the south rise again, in time to save America from terminal liberalism?

Pray for it with all the fervor you can muster!

Where Is Osama bin Laden?



Satire by John W. Lillpop

Just what, in the name of all that is good and Holy, has President Obama been doing for nigh unto six bloody months?

Everyone knows that the man has trashed his promise on integrity (ear marks, signing statements, transparency, etc.) and ethics.

Everyone also knows that the president has made a wretched economy even worse by permitting clue less liberals like Nancy Pelosi to pile massive debt onto the backs of American taxpayers, their grandchildren, and their great grandchildren, ad infinitum.

Still, in the interest of being fair, one should consider some of Obama's more notable achievements to date.

Since 12:01 PM, EST, on January 20, 2009, Obama can claim credit for the following highlights from his presidential resume:

* Made headlines with his much ballyhooed plan to close Gitmo and relocate terrorists, and suspected terrorists, in states and cities run and or occupied by Republicans. All will be read their Miranda rights and treated with dignity, which will change nothing if one of these renegades has the chance to slice your throat from ear to bloody ear.

* Enhanced his image with the sleeper cell voting demographic, and other Islamofascist lunatics, by working to improve the lot of middle class terrorists in their epic struggle against infidels, mostly Caucasian Christian Republicans.

*Escorted General Motors to bankruptcy and has plans to do the same to other industries with the outrageous climate bill fiasco.

*Proposed to destroy the most efficient and effective health care system with a government run HMO.

*Promoted child infanticide (abortion) as a means for combating climate change based on new age science which shows, conclusively, that baby poop emits noxious C02 emissions, which can lead to global warming.

*Pissed off America's most loyal and powerful allies, while cavorting with the likes of Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez, long time blood enemies of America.

*While on foreign soil, declared that America is not a Christian nation and apologized for the behavior of former President George W. Bush.

* Converted the White House Cabinet into a halfway house/career center for tax cheats, "pay to play" con artists, and other unemployed Democrats generally considered unemployable.

* Assaulted the "Don't ask, Don't Tell" military policy that discriminates against girlie men, and promised to make the military a "Big Tent" of the sort that would cause Barney Frank's heart rate to soar!


Despite Obama's many achievements, this reporter remains unbowed and will not let up until the "big question" is answered:


Where is Osama bin Laden, Mr. President?

President Obama Addicted to More Than Tobacco?



Satire by John W. Lillpop


President Obama has been likened to Jimmy Carter when it comes to lack of leadership skills and wrong headed liberalism.

Now it appears as though Obama shares another trait with the former president from Georgia: Lust for human female flesh.

Whereas President Carter kept his lust in his heart, America's transparency president expresses his lust out in the open with all the cameras of the world trained on his every move.

As reported, in part, at the link below:


http://www.herald.ie/world-news/has-barack-been-taking-lessons-from-berlusconi-1816054.html

"OH DEAR -- she's young enough to be his daughter.
And 16-year-old Mayara Tavares will no doubt be a little bemused about how she managed to grab the attention of Barack Obama at the G8 summit in Italy.

"But it looks like the world's most powerful man will have a little explaining to do when wife Michelle sees the picture that is raising chuckles -- and eyebrows -- around the world.

"There's no doubt Brazilian Mayara certainly grabbed the attention of the world, and world leaders at the official photo session in L'Aquila, Italy.
The teenager is from the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro and volunteers as a community researcher in the shanty towns."

"Through this work she became part of a Unicef-backed National Platform for the improvement of poor communities in large urban centres."


Aha, a community researcher concerned with helping others, especially the poor!

That fact will be used by Team Obama as the real reason for the Messiah's interest in the young and shapely Mayara.

The Spin: As a former community organizer, Obama is always on the look for talented people whom are committed to helping others in community activist roles.

It is sheer coincidence that Mayara is a drop dead gorgeous, sixteen-year-old with a world class posterior.

The real question, Team Obama will contend, is whether Mayara can give up the good life in Rio de Janeiro in exchange for an opportunity to serve Barack Obama and the world as an intern in the White House?

In that regard, President Obama was just making sure that Oval Office furniture would be good enough for Ms. Tavares before making her an offer.

All of this in the name of transparency and openness you understand!

Nancy Pelosi Gets One Right!








By John W. Lillpop

Rarely does Nancy Pelosi, Shrieker of the US House of Representatives, do or say anything that makes any sense whatsoever to normal, patriotic Americans.

Remember, she is the Catholic Democrat who defended her pro-choice politics by claiming that the fathers of the church had not yet decided if abortion were a sin.

The very same Pelosi who spoke to a group of immigrants (probably illegal) at a church in San Francisco and declared that enforcing immigration laws was un-American!

Clearly, Nancy Pelosi missed her calling as a stand-up comic. Damn pity that Pelosi did not go to Hollywood to take Gracie Allen's place as a confused air head; Pelosi would have been a natural for the role.

Instead, Pelosi has spent twenty years in Washington, D.C. working 24/7 against the best interests of the American people.

She did, however, get it right on the Michael Jackson media puke-in.

As reported at USATODAY, in part:

http://blogs.usatoday.com/onpolitics/2009/07/pelosi-says-no-to-michael-jackson-resolution.html

"At her news conference this morning, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was asked about the CIA, health care -- and Michael Jackson.

"Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, who spoke at Jackson's memorial service Tuesday, wants to honor the King of Pop for his humanitarian works. She told those at the service that she had introduced a House resolution honoring him.

"It is bound to be controversial. Rep. Pete King, R-N.Y., has been particularly critical of Jackson's lifestyle and the media's coverage of his death, calling the pop legend a "pervert" and "lowlife."

"Pelosi doesn't want to bring it up for a vote. She says a resolution honoring Jackson would be counterproductive because it "would open up two contrary views."

"Michael Jackson was a great, great performer," Pelosi said. "Lots of sadness there for many reasons."

"But, she added, "I don't think it is necessary for us to have a resolution."

Stop the presses and roll out the champagne! Nancy Pelosi, among the best and brightest San Francisco has to offer, actually took a common sense stance on an issue!

For nearly two weeks now, American media have attempted to deify Michael Jackson with 24/7 coverage of this very disturbed man's life and death.

When is enough enough? How about 14 days ago?

Not according to moonbats like Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee.

If Congresswoman Lee had gotten her way, the US Congress would have stopped work on the collapsing US economy, massive deficits, soaring unemployment and gas prices, and Obama's wars in Iraq and Afghanistan long enough to pass a resolution honoring the deceased malcontent, AKA, Michael Jackson.

Thanks to Nancy Pelosi, that will not happen!

Nearly Six Months In, Obama Still "Achievement" Free












By John W. Lillpop

As tough as it is to admit it, Hillary Rodham Clinton got one right when she tried to warn America that Barack Obama was an inexperienced, naive poser without any achievement to his credit.

As reported by the LA Times, in part, during the heat of the 2008 campaign:

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/washington/2008/03/hillary-clinton.html

"I think that I have a lifetime of experience that I will bring to the White House. Sen. John McCain has a lifetime of experience that he'd bring to the White House. And Sen. Obama has a speech he gave in 2002."

Zing! A good dagger to the heart by one tough old broad!

Not that it mattered in the end, though.

With the so-called fourth estate dominated by goons more concerned about "thrills" running up and down their legs than substantive issues, Obama fooled the masses with gooey-eyed double talk about CHANGE and HOPE and other empty promises, even though the One did not, and still does not, have a clue about the issues.

The unwashed masses fell in love with this bright and silver-tongued man of color who, if elected, would make your car and mortgage payments for you, provide free health care for everyone, and end partisan squabbling.

He would deal with Iran, North Korea, Al-Qaeda and other avowed enemies of America by simply talking nice to them.

He would solve the energy crisis by reminding everyone to check the air pressure in his or her tires.

He would declare all of America a "nuclear-free" zone which would immediately end the threat of nuclear war and eliminate the need for all of those silly missile shields that Republicans kept pushing to keep their pals in the defense industry rich and happy.

He would heal the racial divide in America by taking actions to atone for slavery, Jack Crow laws, discrimination and all other bad things done to African Americans over the past 400 years, within six months.

Nearly six months into the weakest, least able, and least pro-American presidency in our history, Barack Hussein Obama remains a man without achievement.

The only CHANGE he has managed is to the US dollar which, after months of Obamanomics, has been downgraded to change!

Thank goodness, the people are starting to wake up, as in Ohio where Obama's approval rating has slipped to 49 percent.

A counter-revolution is in the air.

The people have pretty much had it, and will soon demand CHANGE in the Oval Office and in the halls of Congress presently clogged with lefty nut balls like Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.

Hang on patriots! This too will pass.

Should Congress Pay Even MORE Tribute to MJ?

Satire by John W. Lillpop

For nearly two weeks now, American media have attempted to deify Michael Jackson with 24/7 coverage of this very disturbed man's life and death.

When is enough enough? How about 13 days ago?

Not according to moonbats like Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee.

If Congresswoman Lee gets her way, the US Congress will stop work on the collapsing US economy, massive deficits, soaring unemployment and gas prices, and Obama's wars in Iraq and Afghanistan long enough to pass a resolution honoring the deceased pervert, AKA, Michael Jackson.

As reported, in part, at CSN:

http://www.cnsnews.com/public/content/article.aspx?RsrcID=50700

"Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee may have trouble keeping the promise she made at Michael Jackson's public memorial for a House resolution that "forever" honors the late pop star.

"Jackson Lee, a Texas Democrat, took the stage Tuesday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and hoisted a framed copy of the resolution, embossed with a gold seal. The measure will be debated on the House floor, she said.

"For that framed, embossed resolution to be completely legit, it must first get past some opposition.

"Her legislation, House Resolution 600, lists several charitable acts by Michael Jackson over his long career and proclaims him as an American legend, musical icon and world humanitarian. He is, Jackson Lee said, "someone who will be honored forever and forever and forever and forever and forever."

"In the House, non-controversial resolutions honoring a person who has died or carried out a noteworthy accomplishment normally move quickly from committee to the House floor and then pass on a voice vote. The Michael Jackson resolution, introduced June 26, is awaiting action in the House Foreign Affairs Committee, of which Jackson Lee is a member and King is not."


I have an even better idea, Congresswoman: Let's make July 7 a national holiday in honor of Michael Jackson in order to assure that the King of Pill Pop will be remembered forever.

Of course, adding another expensive federal holiday will be a hard sell during the national depression. Still, the issue must be addressed.

My solution: Drop Martin Luther King day as a holiday and replace it with Emaciated Pedophile Day.

How does that sound Congresswoman?

Mixed Signals on Israeli Strike: Biden Says Go, Obama Says No








By John W. Lillpop

Given the frequent contradictions coming from the White House, one can not help but wonder if President Barack Obama and VP Joe Biden ever communicate, be it in person, cell phone, e-mail, text messaging, Twitter, or US mail?

How about homing pigeons, foot messengers, or smoke signals?

The latest incident of crossed signals involves the latitude granted by the US to Israel in dealing with the Mullahs of Iran.

As reported at the link below, in part:

http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1246443739359&pagename=JPost%2FJPArticle%2FShowFull

"President Obama on Tuesday strongly denied that the United States had given Israel an approval to strike Iran's nuclear facilities.

"Asked by CNN whether Washington had given Israel a green light for such an attack, Obama answered: "Absolutely not."

"In the interview, which was broadcast from Russia, where Obama is on an official visit, he added: "We can't dictate to other countries what their security interests are.

"What is also true is, it is the policy of the United States to try to resolve the issue of Iran's nuclear capabilities," Obama said.

"On Sunday, US Vice President Joe Biden was asked on ABC's 'This Week' whether the US would stand in the way militarily if the Israelis decided they needed to take out Iran's nuclear program.

"The US "cannot dictate to another sovereign nation what they can and cannot do," he said.

"Israel can determine for itself - it's a sovereign nation - what's in their interest and what they decide to do relative to Iran and anyone else," he said."

The two most powerful government officials in the US cannot get their act together on an issue as important as war?

Yet, We the People should entrust these blokes with the health care system for 300 million Americans?

Not on your bloody life!

Washington Post: All the Access Fit to Sell







By John W. Lillpop

Selling newspapers is a respectable, American way to earn a profit, even for those leftist media who claim to loathe the very idea of profit and the corporate greed it inevitably spawns.

On the other hand, auctioning off access to "those powerful few" contacts one develops while collecting and delivering the news is an example of corporate greed gone amuck.

It is also apparently the way they do business over at the very liberal Washington Post.

As reported at the link below, in part:

http://www.theyoungturks.com/story/2009/7/2/104321/3922/Diary/The-Washington-Post-Sells-Out

"Washington Post publisher Katharine Weymouth said today she was canceling plans for an exclusive "salon" at her home where for as much as $250,000, the Post offered lobbyists and association executives off-the-record access to "those powerful few" — Obama administration officials, members of Congress, and even the paper’s own reporters and editors.

The astonishing offer was detailed in a flier circulated Wednesday to a health care lobbyist, who provided it to a reporter because the lobbyist said he felt it was a conflict to charge for access to, as the flier says, its “health care reporting and editorial staff."

"With the Post news room in an uproar after POLITICO reported the solicitation, Weymouth said in an email to the staff that "a flier went out that was prepared by the Marketing department and was never vetted by me or by the news room. Had it been, the flier would have been immediately killed, because it completely misrepresented what we were trying to do."

"She made it clear however, that The Post, which lost $19.5 million in the first quarter, sees bringing together Washington figures as a future revenue source. “We do believe that there is a viable way to expand our expertise into live conferences and events that simply enhances what we do - cover Washington for Washingtonians and those interested in Washington,” she said. “ And we will begin to do live events in ways that enhance our reputation and in no way call into question our integrity.”

"Executive editor Marcus Brauchli was as adamant as Weymouth in denouncing the plan promoted in the flier. “You cannot buy access to a Washington Post journalist,” Brauchli told POLITICO. Brauchli was named on the flier as one of the salon’s "Hosts and Discussion Leaders."


An unsolicited word of wisdom for both Katharine Weymouth and Marcus Brauchli:

Rather than peddling influence, how about giving journalist integrity a chance by reporting the news objectively, honestly and without that dreadful liberal bias that the WAPO is notorious for?

Who knows, if the WAPO were a reliable source for news rather than a wing of the DNC, people might even read the damn thing!

Liberals Plotting Another Trillion Dollar "Stimulus" Bill?







By John W. Lillpop

Don't look now, but the same liberals who fleeced the American people with the first trillion-dollar stimulus rip-off are quietly making a move to do it again.

As reported at abcnews, in part:

http://blogs.abcnews.com/thenote/2009/07/dem-senator-second-stimulus-probably-needed.html


"Today on ABCNews.com’s “Top Line,” Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., said a second stimulus is “probably needed,” and predicted that Congress is likely to act before the end of the year to inject even more federal dollars into the economy.

"Said Whitehouse: “I think that it is probably needed. We’re going to need to have some further discussion. It will probably take place towards the end of the year and we want to take a look at the economic conditions at the time. But it certainly should be on the table at this point.”

"He continued: “We very may well need to do a second stimulus, and we have to reassure the American people that just because the banks are back on better footing again, we haven’t overlooked them. They’re the priority, and we gotta make sure that’s clear.”


Excuse the skepticism Senator Whitehouse, but isn't the first trillion dollar pork bill a significant factor in the deepening recession and march toward double digit unemployment?

In fact, another trillion dollar stimulus makes about as much sense as:

* Using gasoline to fight a roaring fire.

* Giving an alcoholic a drink to soothe his shaky nerves and hands.

* Treating an obese child to a hot fudge sundae in order to make her feel better after being called "fat" at school.

* Gifting a dying lung cancer patient in Hospice Care with a pack of unfiltered Pall Mall smokes to lift his "sagging spirits."


The story from the referenced link continues, in part:

"Whitehouse’s home state of Rhode Island is among the hardest-hit in the current economic downturn. In light of a Providence Journal story revealing that most stimulus money headed to Rhode Island has gone to close the state’s budget gap -- instead of on job-creating projects -- we asked the senator whether he was satisfied with the spending pace and overall impact of the first stimulus measure.

'No -- obviously not,” he said. “I think that the sooner we can get these jobs out for people the better off they will be, and the sooner the economy can really start to turn around in a way that means something to regular people and not just to bank executives. So, we’ve got a job to do to try to speed that up.'

"The Obama administration, while acknowledging that the stimulus’ impact hasn’t been what they predicted it would be, is putting off questions about a second stimulus.

"On ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” Sunday, Vice President Joe Biden said that while administration officials “misread the economy” earlier this year, it’s too soon to say whether more stimulus spending is necessary."


Translated into working English, the VP was saying, in effect, "Look, we don't know what the hell we are doing, and Obamanomics is obviously failing miserably. Before we swindle the people out of another trillion dollars, we Democrats want to make sure that we can blame George W. Bush for the first trillion."

Has there ever been a more cogent argument against single party governance?

The economic Armageddon now taking place is a direct result of having no responsible oversight to counter tax and spend liberals like Nancy Pelosi.

Does America need a second stimulus?

Only if said stimulus results in massive tax cuts and cancellation of hundreds of billions of dollars in waste and fraud contained in the first Pelosi-Reid-Obama giveaway signed into law in February.

Tax Payer Money Wasted on Michael Jackson Farewell in Los Angeles








By John W. Lillpop

Los Angeles, like all major cities in America, is under enormous financial pressure because of the steep recession and President Obama's misguided policies which have only turned the recession into a major depression.

Budget deficits have caused the city to layoff teachers and cut back services to citizens, although illegal aliens fare better because many are shielded by Mayor Antonio Villagarrosa, a Mexican national who regards the millions of invading criminals in LA as "family."

With all of its woes and problems, the last thing Los Angeles needs is another huge, unnecessary expense for a crotch-grabbing, drug-addicted freak who cashed in his own chips with a lifestyle that was more stupid than immoral.

As reported, in part, at MSN.com:

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/31710570/ns/entertainment-music/

"LOS ANGELES - More than 1.6 million fans registered for tickets to Michael Jackson's memorial service over the two-day registration period that ended Saturday.

"Only 11,000 tickets will be given out for the Tuesday service at Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles. Another 6,500 tickets will be given away for the Nokia Theater overflow section next door.

"Fans had to register for free at staplescenter.com between 10 a.m. Friday and 6 p.m. Saturday for the random drawing of 8,750 names. Each person selected will receive two tickets and will be notified by email after 11 a.m. Sunday.

"Last month, donations covered about $850,000 of the city's $1 million cost for the Los Angeles Lakers' NBA championship parade. Critics had blasted the idea of using city money when it is considering layoffs to close its budget gap."

So, is the funeral of an emaciated pedophile more important than a parade for Kobe Bryant and the NBA Championship, an event that brought pride and joy to all Angelenos?

Of course not.

Los Angeles should bill the estate of "The King of Pill Pop" for every dime spent escorting this weirdo out of this earthly dimension!

What Up With Your Birth Certificate, Mr. Transparency?














Satire by John Lillpop

For a fellow who claims to have invented the concept of transparency in American politics and government, Barack Obama's behavior is most peculiar, especially when it comes to his birth certificate.

Obama claims that he was born in Honolulu, Hawaii on August 4, 1961, has released his birth certificate, and that the matter is closed.

Furthermore, when asked about the controversy during a recent news briefing, White House Spokesman Robert Gibbs broke down into hysterical laughter and answered by saying, "We won!"

Thanks for that professional insight, Mr. Gibbs. Campaigning to be Obama's Transparency Czar are you?

Although Barack Obama's eligibility was challenged in filings with the SCOTUS (not accepted for review), the issue has been mostly a sidebar concern given the terrible state of the economy and volatile world crises and near crises.

However, the pursuit for truth has led Joseph Farah at World Net Daily and other patriots to keep the issue alive.

As they say in sports, "It ain't over till the fat lady sings!" and in the case of Barack Obama's birth certificate, the fat lady weighs about 45 pounds and is just starting singing lessons.

Which means this issue is not going away just because some hillbilly press secretary says so.

Know this Mr. Gibbs: Winning an election does not render the US Constitution null and void. Just like the white dudes who preceded him, Obama is bound by the laws that form the basis for our great nation.

Remember this as well: Obama was elected president, not Messiah, King, World Citizen, Muslim Appeaser, or Apologist-in-chief.

Of course, it may turn out that there is a perfectly reasonable explanation for all of this, and that the issue is simply overblown hyperbole crafted by right wing extremists to keep Obama from converting a free market democracy into a socialist-fascist nanny state in less than six months.

Possible explanations for Obama's birth certificate phobia include:


* His birth certificate is in Arabic, rather than Hawaiian, and includes the phrase "New Born Warrior for Allah";

* Because of a queasy stomach at birth, Obama's nickname was recorded as CHANGE, referring to the non-stop regiment of diaper duties dumped on hospital nurses.

The term also became the motto of his presidential campaign years later, but now it is We the People who are stuck with cleaning up after the One.

* Obama's birth certificate lists his mother as a virgin and his birth as a contemporary miracle of Pele, the Hawaiian Goddess of Volcanoes and other hot air.

* His birth certificate describes Obama as clean and articulate, probably a gift from Pele to the only black dude born in Honolulu that month.

My own personal opinion is that Obama was born in a Mosque in Tikrit, Iraq, also the birth place of the deposed and very dead Saddam Hussein, who until now was the most famous Tikiter ever born.

Obama's middle name (Hussein) reflects the Obama family reverence for the former Baghdad butcher.

Bottom Line: In my view, Obama owes We the People a full and complete explanation of his birth, including release of a certifiable birth certificate!

He needs to answer the question: What Up With Your Birth Certificate, Mr. Transparency President?

Paying State Payroll Taxes With IOUs








Satire by John W. Lillpop

By now, the entire world has heard that California can no longer pay its bills. The amount of money going out exceeds the amount coming in. Real simple arithmetic is in play here when you think about it.

Except, this is California, you see. Not only do the basic laws of nature not apply here, but the fundamentals of finance and common sense have gone missing as well.

To the outsider, California's dilemma is paradoxical.

After all, this is home to Silicon Valley and high technology. Geniuses are everywhere, and the state is renowned for being on the cutting edge on all issues from sex to science.

Brilliance abounds, EXCEPT in state government because California is cursed with a gaggle of extreme tax and spend liberals in the State Assembly.

An example of outrageous liberal recklessness is described by writer Jon Coupal, president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association and a tireless leader in the never-ending battle to contain liberal spending.

Coupal writes, in part, at Californiarepublic.com:

http://californiarepublic.org/?p=1001


"Sacramento is now filled with a new crop of cash-eating locusts and they are no better than their predecessors. They show no remorse or regret for their failure to rein in spending and no sympathy for the taxpayer ants who themselves are struggling to get by and are wondering if they will make it through the winter of our declining economy.

"To add insult to injury, the grasshopper chorus now sings a new song, led by Assemblywoman Noreen Evans. She revealed the lyrics a few days ago before a conference committee on the budget. “This mantra out there ‘live within our means,’ while it sounds really nice, while it sounds really simple and it sounds really responsible, it’s meaningless,” she intoned.

"Evans’ statement is breathtaking for its arrogance. For California families and businesses, the idea that one has to “live within their means” is a common sense notion and those who do not follow it find themselves in bankruptcy. Evans admission demonstrates yet again how disconnected our liberal political leadership is from ordinary citizens. Taxpayers can’t help but wonder, if this is how Evans views our state fiscal crisis, will her next chart-topper be, “Let Them Eat Cake?”

"The logically challenged Evans justifies calls for new revenue by saying that it is for the “needy.” However, if the Santa Rosa Democrat is so concerned about the least amongst us, why did she and most of her colleagues approve the February tax package that includes new sales taxes, higher car taxes and a $200 cut in the tax deduction for dependent children? These taxes fall disproportionately hard on low and middle income Californians. And why did these same tax-and-spend lawmakers, who use children and the poor as human shields to defend raising taxes, approve Proposition 1A for the May Special Election ballot that would have perpetuated these highly regressive taxes for an additional two years?"

So again, just why is California bankrupt? Because of dim wit Democrats like Assemblywoman Noreen Evans.

If your teenager continued to overdraw her checking account, funded solely by you, how would you handle the matter?

A. Close the account and burn the unused checks and ATM cards, or

B. Continue to increase the young woman's allowance and cover all those inevitable "insufficient funds" fees.

Which would it be?

Democrats in Sacramento are solidly behind Option B, with Noreen Evans the best example of fuzzy headed thinking.

Small business owners hit hard by the recession need to form an alliance and take action to end this stupidity.

My suggestion: When the time comes to pay your payroll taxes, send the weasels in Sacramento an IOU with an appropriate cover letter such as this:

Dear Governor and State Assembly Members:

Enclosed herewith please find a remittance in the amount of $67,890.12 which is the amount of payroll taxes owed by Lillpop Business Schemes, Inc., for the period ended June 30, 2009.

Because of tough economic times here in California, I have adopted the state's approach to balancing my budget: Simply do not bother!

After all, living within my means is meaningless these days. I know that you understand

As a result, my remittance is in the form of a certified IOU payable to the State of California on June 30, 2010.

Please expect all further payroll tax remittances to be IOUs as well.

By the way, please extend my warm regards to Assemblywoman Noreen Evans for her brilliant concept concerning the meaningless of living within one's means.

Issuing IOUs is much quicker and far less painful to small business owners like myself.

Sincerely,

John W. Lillpop
Proprietor, Lillpop Business Schemes Inc."



Several hundred thousand remittances in the form of IOUs might help enlighten liberals like Assemblywoman Noreen Evans.

And that would be a good thing!

Obama's Three Letter Quagmire: Jobs!

By John W. Lillpop


Despite the fact that nearly one trillion dollars of taxpayer money have been spent to "stimulate" the economy, America's recession continues to worsen.

To quote VP Joe Biden, the problem can be summarized in one three letter word: Jobs!

As reported, in part, at the New York Times:

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/03/business/economy/03jobs.html?_r=1

"The American economy lost 467,000 more jobs in June, and the unemployment rate edged up to 9.5 percent in a sobering indication that the longest recession since the 1930s had yet to release its hold.

“The numbers are indicative of a continued, very severe recession,” said Stuart G. Hoffman, chief economist at PNC Financial Services in Pittsburgh. “There’s nothing in here to show that the economy and the market are pulling out of the grip of recession.”

"The Labor Department’s monthly snapshot of employment, released Thursday, challenged visions of a recovery already taking root. The numbers intensify pressure on the Obama administration to show returns on programs aimed at improving national fortunes — not least its $787 billion stimulus plan."

"Some economists are now calling for another dose of government spending to stimulate the economy, though the White House maintains that enough money is in the pipeline already.

“Not all the recovery money has been put to work yet,” said the labor secretary, Hilda L. Solis. “We’re making progress.”

"But Ms. Solis acknowledged that joblessness was already much worse than the administration projected in January when it created its stimulus spending bill, suggesting then that joblessness would peak at about 8 percent."


The bottom line is that wild, uncontrolled spending by the administration and Democrats in Congress is not working and is, in fact, ruining what is left of the fragile economy.

Unfortunately, spending money is the only thing liberals know hot to do which means that, in all probability, yet another "stimulus" orgy is being considered by people who really do not have a clue.

During the 2008 primaries, Hillary Clinton caused a great deal of consternation among Obama supporters when she sarcastically asked, "What achievement?" in challenging Obama's record in politics and life in general.

Six months into Obama's presidency, Hillary's question is still valid and the answer remains, "There are none."

Unless you consider neutering the national defense, bowing before foreign kings, aiding and abetting terrorists, running up massive debt and otherwise destroying the economy, and betraying America and Americans while speaking on foreign soil to be "achievements."

If complete and total failure is an achievement, Barack Obama is a huge success.

For those of us who love America and want it back, President Obama is stuck in a quagmire of soaring deficits and unemployment.

Obama should do the honorable thing and resign while there still is an America!

Helen Thomas' Declaration of Independence!







By John W. Lillpop

Who would have expected one of the toughest and most loyal liberals in the media to take on the most liberal president in the history of the United States?

In an era in which a television Odd Ball declares that Barack Obama sends a "thrill up and down my leg," nothing but total groveling and surrender is expected from weasels in mainstream media.

However, marking the spirit of the Independence Day holiday, Helen Thomas has declared her personal freedom from Obamamania, at least when it comes to the administration's foolish transparency canard.

As reported, in part, at associatedcontent.com:


"Helen Thomas is not thought of as an Obama critics, since Helen Thomas is the supposed symbol of the liberal media. Helen Thomas was frequently bashed by conservatives for her questions, and speeches, at President Bush. Things are a little different today, as Helen Thomas actually went after the press secretary of a Democratic president. In fact, Helen Thomas actually said that the Obama "control" of the press was worse than Nixon, to further shock the blogosphere.

"Helen Thomas didn't start the battles at yesterday's press briefing, but she certainly highlighted them. Thomas came to the defense of CBS News correspondent Chip Reid, when he tried to ask Press Secretary Robert Gibbs how Obama would choose questions for tonight's town hall meeting in Virginia.

"Reid stated that the administration was controlling both who was going to attend, and what kind of questions would be asked. When Gibbs tried to brush him off, Helen Thomas injected herself in her usual, no-nonsense fashion

"Since Thomas is famous for heated confrontations with press secretaries, and even Presidents, her remarks got more attention. Particularly since Helen Thomas often makes more newsworthy remarks than the press secretary and the President, as they fuel the debate over media coverage and bias one way or another.

"In this case, Thomas told Gibbs that no other White House tried to put this much control over media coverage, and slammed him for doing so despite the administration's calls for "openness and transparency."

"But Thomas saved her biggest quote for afterward, as she told CNS News that not even Richard Nixon had tried to control the media this way. Thomas not only put the Nixon administration on a higher ground than Obama in this area, she didn't even mention George W. Bush as part of it."


Thomas' words are sweet music to the ears of patriots whom have been pointing out Obama's corruption since January 20.

Happy Independence Day, Helen!
