Where Are Those All Jobs, Mr. President?

By John W. Lillpop

Back in February,2009, 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 while promising that the bill would add 3.5 to 4 million jobs.

Thirteen 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 is stalled near 10 percent, and is not expected to improve anytime soon soon.

And President Obama's "solution" to America's economic misery is? Spend another few trillion dollars plus to reform health care.

With all due respect, Mr. President, shouldn't you have waited to see if that stimulus bill actually creates any new jobs before throwing another few trillion dollars at another program that you not familiar with?

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

March 31 in California: State-Sanctioned Holiday Based on Racism!

By John Lillpop

According to specious liberal logic, people of color are, by definition, incapable of being racists. In truth, however, racism is evident in all racial and ethnic groups.

Racism is just as wrong and un-American when practiced by people of color as it is when practiced by whites. When people of color attempt to elevate their group above that of others based solely on race, they are engaged in racism.

Example: California celebrates March 31 as a state holiday to commemorate the birth and life of Cesar Chavez.

For those unfamiliar with the name, the late Cesar Chavez was a world famous union organizer and grape picker who picked his way to fame in California.

Most importantly, to some, Chavez was Hispanic.

In effect, then, March 31 is a state-sanctioned holiday based solely on the race of Cesar Chavez, and the importance of his life to Hispanics.

That is divisive and racist! And wrong!

Another example: Several years ago, Blanca Alvarado, local politician in Santa Clara County, thought that it made perfect sense to abandon Columbus Day just to make room for celebrating the life of the same Cesar Chavez!

Clearly, Alvarado's proposal was based on her racist desire to supplant an all-American holiday with a day that would elevate a fellow Hispanic.

That is also divisive and racist. It is also wrong!

Alvarado's assault on Italians and American history was aided and abetted by a comment from fellow nit wit supervisor Liz Kniss who said:

"On this particular coast, it (Columbus Day) doesn't seem to have great relevance."

Metroactive: http://www.metroactive.com/papers/metro/01.16.03/public-eye-0303.html

With all due respect to Alvarado and Kniss, the birthday of Cesar Chavez does not have relevance to most Americans. That is true for Americans on BOTH coasts!

Despite the likes of Blanca Alvarado and Liz Kniss, Columbus Day is still celebrated in most of America on the second Monday in October of each year. The post office, banks, and other government offices are mostly closed to honor Christopher Columbus.

For Hispanics like Blanca Alvarado and others who regard Columbus Day with an attitude of sour grapes, there is some good news:

Most vineyards are OPEN on the second Monday of October, and the grapes are ripe for picking or stomping, depending on one's progress in anger management!

For real Americans, March 31 is celebrated as Dr. Michael Savage day in honor of this great son of an immigrant whose parents came to America legally, who speaks perfect English, and who has attained high levels of education and fame based on his own intelligence, initiative and hard work!

On March 31, celebrate the birth and life of a truly great American, Dr. Michael Savage!!

Ricky Martin: From “Macho Dude” to “Queen of Livin' la Vida Loca'

Satire by John W. Lillpop

Hispanic folk lore has long held that homosexuality is an affliction of the soul visited only upon Anglo-Saxon Twinkies. According to legend, Hispanic males are incapable of lusting after other males, regardless of ethnicity, because of immorality inhibitors built into the Hispanic DNA by the Creator.

Imagine, then, the chagrin with which Ricky Martin’s “coming out” bulletin was received in barrios, day worker centers, and food stamp outlets all across what used to be America the Great.

As reported in the mainstream media, in part:

“Ricky Martin, the 38-year-old singer, who revealed he is homosexual in an emotional message on his official website, took to twitter to thank his fans for their support.

“He wrote: "Whats going on gang?I'm doing great! Stronger than ever! I'm here relaxing @ home enjoying ur messages! I feel the love! Thanx for all! peace(sic)"

“Writing on his official website, Ricky claimed it was the birth of his twin boys from a surrogate in August 2008 that led him to admit his sexuality.

“He said: "To keep living as I did up until today would be to indirectly diminish the glow that my kids where born with. Enough is enough. This has to change.”


Wonder what grizzled old La Reza nut balls might think about that? Do you suppose they would agree that hanging onto one’s image as a normal, heterosexual male father would diminsh “the glow of the birth" of Martin’s sons?

Clearly, the pertinent question of the day is: How does one say, “Gay is glorious,” in Spanish?

Is it even possible to do so?


Vat about Their “Miranda Rights,” Vladimir?

By John W. Lillpop

Pity the uninformed suicide bomber who naively assumed that
the idiotic pampering of Islamofascists so common in Barack Obama’s wuss-infected America would also apply in Russia.

As reported at Yahoonews.com, (1) in part, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin showed little stomach for the “kinder, gentler” nonsense so typical of the “Progressive” approach to Islamofascists in America:

“MOSCOW – Vladimir Putin vowed Tuesday to "drag out of the sewer" the masterminds of the twin suicide bombing of the Moscow subway system that killed 39 people and left scores wounded.

“The powerful prime minister spoke as Russia mourned the dead from Monday's attacks; teary passengers lit candles and left carnations at both of the central stations that were hit.

“The blasts shocked a country that had grown accustomed to such violence being confined to a restive southern corner — and marked the return of terrorism to the everyday lives of Muscovites after a six-year break.”

But what about their “Miranda Rights,” Vladimir?

Must be careful not to offend any delicate Muslim sensitivity while dragging murdering Jihadists out of those sewers!

By all means, do not forget to have Muslim clerics, copies of the Koran, and an abundant supply of special food and prayer blankets on hand for the incarcerated suicide whackos!

Above all else, Vladimir, assure all of the Religion of Peace cretins that they have the right to trial by a civilian jury.

Of course there is a huge ideological difference between Putin and Obama when it comes to dealing with terrorists.

Putin is merely a despicable atheist, one who does not believe in God at all.

Obama, on the other hand, is the far more dangerous character based on his addiction to Islam!




Can Obama's Nanny Fascists Force You to Live Healthy?

Satire by John W. Lillpop

Given the fact that the Medical Marxists in charge of America have succeeded in passing a bill that allows the government to force private citizens to purchase health insurance, and levy fines, and or jail, to those who fail to comply, just how far can the nanny fascists go in deciding how you live your life?

How about a government mandate to outlaw behavior which leads to obesity and related diseases such as diabetes and heart disease?

If government can force me to buy health insurance, against my will, in the name of advancing the greater good, can those same imbeciles tell me that my weight must not exceed those absurd height-weight charts found in doctors’ offices from coast to coast?

What about a required weigh-in at the local IRS office every year in early April, say a couple of weeks before April 15?

Exceed the prescribed weight for your body frame, sex, and age, and IRS automatically adds $100 to your tab bill—for every pound of excess flab. So the guy or gal with 50 extra lbs to their name would have to cough up an extra $5,000.

Add that to the $5,000 penalty for not having insurance, and you have Ten Grand staring back at you, just for being a slobaholic.

Continue down that slippery slope for another year, and you might find yourself incarcerated and forced to unwillingly lose those 50 pounds before being allowed to live free.

Or with dim-bulbs like Nancy Pelosi in charge, the insanity might even go further: Given the chance, Nanny Nancy would outlaw Twinkies, mashed potatoes and gravy, real ice cream, Reese buttercups, sour cream, spaghetti and meatballs, beer, French bread and butter, popcorn, Frito chips, hot dogs, and any and all foods and drinks found at a typical American 4th of July celebration, Christmas and Thanksgiving dinner, and most birthday parties, where Anglo-Saxon culture and food are allowed.

In contrast, some of the most fatty, high-calorie and carbohydrate-laced foods like Tacos, Tamales, Burritos, and Enchiladas would be exempt from Nancy’s law, owing to the sensitive nature of Hispanic voters and-- their voting numbers.

What about exercise? Getting enough—at least one hour a day?

Damn your hide! You are a national security risk and a threat to the success of ObamaCare and medical fascism. This must not stand!

You will, therefore, be required by law to exercise daily according to a regime devised by a panel of health experts like Charles Rangel, Barney Frank, and Louise Slaughter.

The law will be enforced by IRS agents who will be authorized to demand proof of your compliance before allowing you to withdraw funds from your government- insured bank account.

Stop bitching, Pilgrims! This is Progress, remember?

Say what? What about a law making it a felony to smoke, chew, or sniff any tobacco product?

Sorry, mate, but that sort of intrusive interference is above the pay grade of our nicotine-addicted Commander-in-chief at this time!

Moon Bats at Bottom of IQ Bell Curve Killing America

Satire by John W. Lillpop

Years from now, curious scholars will look back at the decline and fall of America in an attempt to understand exactly what caused the greatest society in human history to decay into a third-world quagmire.

Provided said scholars are honest and credible (i.e., not liberals!), they will conclude that the unraveling of western civilization officially began on the night of November 4, 2008, when, for some inexplicable reason, 69,000,000 million Americans abandoned the good sense with which they were born and voted for a double-talking community organizer with attitude.

Barack Hussein Obama was the choice of those 69 million, despite the fact that he was without a smidgen of qualifying experience or accomplishment and was an anti-American radical dedicated to destroying capitalism and American democracy in favor of a system of Marxist fascism.

Extensive research will reveal that those who voted for Barack Obama on that dreary November night in 2008 were almost without exception at the ding bat-end of the IQ bell curve, people so without a clue that it was impossible for them to discern a suicide-bomber on a mission for Allah from a member of the local PTA on a mission to promote youth soccer.

Scholars will have an invaluable resource by visiting http://www.howobamagotelected.com/media-malpractice-filmmaker.asp
a web site created and maintained by film maker John Zeigler who produced a powerful documentary entitled “Media Malpractice,” which chronicled the incredible lack of information, insight, and intelligence owned by those who voted for Barack Obama in 2008.

Although Zeigler was bitterly criticized by the leftist mainstream media for his documentary, his conclusions were confirmed in an independent poll conducted by renowned pollster John Zogby.

John Zeigler’s excellent work earned him the moniker, “The Right’s ‘Michael Moore’—but With Facts,” a title he richly deserves.

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

By John W. Lillpop

Not that long ago, America was embroiled in a raging controversy over President Obama’s constitutional eligibility to serve as president. The debate involved his birth certificate and place of birth.

That issue has never been resolved with finality, although it no longer is front and center in the minds of those who oppose this president and his policies. This is so because of another fundamental truth about Barack Hussein Obama:

By virtue of his Marxist ideology and desire to dismantle or destroy existing American institutions, Barack Obama is no American, regardless of whether he was born in Honolulu or Kenya.

In just over 14 months, this president has been exposed as the most dangerous anti-American activist to have ever occupied the White House.

Some of the more egregious examples of Obama’s offensive behavior include:

* Replaced the finest health care system in the world with a bloated government-run HMO by ignoring the rule of law, the U.S. Constitution, and the wishes of the American people while employing deceit, bribery, and sleight of hand

* Signed a financially -reckless trillion dollar stimulus bill that has failed to stem unemployment or stimulate anything but the federal deficit which, under his command, is out of control and a grave threat to the continued prosperity of America

* Significantly softened American policy with regard to terrorists by requiring that they be read their Miranda rights and tried in civilian courts

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

*Demanded that the use of Enhanced Interrogation Techniques be discontinued even when such procedures were known to be effective in preventing additional terrorist attacks and the resulting loss of American lives

* Seized private enterprises & converted to government entities

* Denounced and or apologized for America and American leaders while on foreign soil

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

* Isolated and betrayed the state of Israel

* Despite exposure of the global warming crisis as a manufactured hoax, continued to advocate a trillion dollar global climate bill that will further devastate the American economy

* Gratuitously bowed before foreign kings and emperors

* At a time when the threat of violence from Mexico became most severe, actually cut funds allocated to border security, 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 Marxism and the UN.

Barack Obama is no American!


This Is Hardball: Time to Use the "Bunning" Tactic!

By John W. Lillpop

In passing their wretched health care reform disaster, Democrats, including President Obama, used every dirty trick at their disposal to maneuver around legitimate concerns over the probity and Constitutionality of the bill.

Unable to pass ObamaCare on its own merits, party leaders scuttled Senate rules on the filibuster, resorted to “reconciliation” chicanery, floated the ill-conceived “deem and pass” scheme and the Slaughter option in Nancy Pelosi’s House of ill repute, ignored the will of the majority of Americans, and generally behaved as though there was no Constitution or rule of law to which they were accountable.

Rarely, if ever, have elected representatives been as hostile to the rule of law and to the very people from whom their power emanates. It was though the very idea of government “by and for the people” was declared null and void by empty-headed Progressives more concerned with the Obama legacy than with the future of our great nation and its 300 million residents.

To their eternal glory, Republicans in Congress remained true to their sworn oath to protect and defend the Constitution. Not one Republican voted for Obama’s hideous assault on the American way of life.

Now ObamaCare has been signed into law, although legal challenges are mounting in several states. One hopes and prays that the Supreme Court ultimately finds that ObamaCare is an abuse of power, and otherwise unlawful, and that the Court strikes it down before any further damage can be inflicted.

Meanwhile, emboldened by the illusion of his "major victory,” President Obama added to the brutal partisan divide in Washington by filling 15 key administrative positions via recess appointment (1).

Clearly, this president is obsessed with “gangsta” politics and winning at all costs. All bets are off and all of the niceties and polite manners of the past have been trashed by this egotistical and arrogant man.

As of now, the Republican Party is all that stands between the American people and the complete and utter devastation of the precious freedom and liberties that our democratic republic has delivered for 234 years.

It is time for Republicans to start playing “hard ball.”

There is no other option; Barack Obama must not be allowed to continue his attack on the American way of life.

Since playing hard ball must be the new mandate for Republicans, why not follow the lead set by Hall of Fame pitcher Jim Bunning, now a Republican Senator from Kentucky?

Senator Bunning set the standard for defiance of Obama earlier in the month when he repeatedly delayed Senate confirmation of Obama nominees. (2)

At the time, Bunning’s action caused considerable consternation even among his fellow Republicans.

However, that was before the Democrats ripped the Constitution and rule of law to shreds in order feed the humungous ego of Barack Obama.

Time for hardball, Republicans!

Why not hold up all of Obama’s nominations until the abomination called ObamaCare is rescinded and consigned to the trash bin?

Remember, desperate times call for desperate measures, as least according to Democrats.

Let’s derail the Obama manic- express by employing the Bunning strategy as soon as possible.

Some Ideas for Spreading the OBAMA Wealth

Satire by John W. Lillpop

More than fourteen months following the hostile takeover of America by Barack Obama, an irrefutable truth has emerged:

Despite being inexperienced, naive and unqualified in most areas vital to serving effectively as president, Barack Obama stands heads and shoulders above all others when it comes to “spreading the wealth,” that dreary euphemism used to avoid the non-PC, yet factually correct, term,--involuntary Communism.

Obama is, in fact, America’s cross-eyed Robin Hood, the Spreader-in-Chief, who eschews a bow and arrow, opting instead to use a corrupt Marxist legislature to misuse and abuse the tax code in order to dictate in whom wealth should reside.

According to Robin Hood Hussein Obama, the assets of insurance firms, bankers, Wall Street brokers and other successful purveyors of free enterprise are to be pillaged and plundered in order to enrich labor unions, ambulance-chasing lawyers, abortion doctors, ACORN volunteers, and the unwashed masses at the ding-bat end of the intelligence bell curve.

Obamanomics is based on the idiotic Communist notion that government intervention is necessary in order to level the playing field between those in whom the Creator has endowed superior wit and drive, and those not so blessed.

“Cursed are the successful and prosperous,” would make a perfect campaign slogan for the likes of Obama, Speaker Pelosi, and Leader Harry Reid.

However, Robin Hood Hussein Obama’s passion for redistributing wealth applies only to OTHER PEOPLE and their assets, most assuredly not his own.

Indeed, President Obama is an exceedingly wealthy elitist, a real hypocrite’s hypocrite.

When it comes to “spreading the wealth,” Obama needs to think CHANGE in terms of his own personal wealth and advantaged lifestyle.

Some suggestions:

1. Opulence and extravagance are the operative terms when it comes to the Obama mansion in South Chicago. Although the property would be what one would expect from a greedy, white Republican, it is hardly ideal for a man dedicated to “universal poverty at all costs.”

Mr. President, Spread the Wealth, by retiring the mortgage on that mansion and donating said property, free and clear, to a non-profit organization serving the homeless in South Chicago. With any sort of decent planning, that mansion could be converted from a grotesque palace reserved for four elitist snobs into a warm and comfortable habitat for 900- 1,000 homeless people who would otherwise be forced to sleep on the streets of the Windy City.

2. Obama daughters Sasha and Malia attend pricey elitist private schools, upper crust institutions which limit their exposure to the abundance of diversity present in the real world. These pampered young ladies should immediately be removed from their isolated cocoons of wealth and advantage and enrolled in the poorest public schools available in Washington, D.C., preferably schools that would require the girls to be bussed.

Mr. President, Spread the Wealth, by paying for two middle-class Republican children to replace Sasha and Malia in those upper-crust schools.

3. Next to Barack Obama’s empire of stealth czars, Michelle Obama rules over the most wasteful and bloated cadre of inept government leeches in Washington, D.C. Sound fiscal policy demands that Michelle’s tribe of servants, hand maidens, chefs, beauticians, personal secretaries and other hired help be reduced to not more than three individuals. Total.

Mr. President, Spread the Wealth, by continuing to pay the wages of the 40 or so misfits to be expunged from Michelle’s staff, and do so with funds from the Obama family personal savings account. Add icing to the cake by donating said paid labor to the charity of Mrs. Obama’s choosing, subject to approval by the Congressional Budget Office.

4. Despite their alleged concern about energy conservation and global warming, the Obama administration utilizes a fleet of gaudy, environmentally-abusive SUVs and Cadillacs to haul the Marxist president around in.

Mr. President, Spread the Wealth, by making Toyota Prius the official President Obama vehicle of choice, notwithstanding all of those worrisome crash stories.

Mind you, these are just a few impromptu ideas for Obama to use in fulfilling his self-defined mission as the world foremost philanthropist and spreader of wealth.

More will follow in future Words of Wisdom lectures.


Health Care Reform: Another Obama Failure in the Offing?

By John W. Lillpop

Above all of the din, chatter, and self-congratulations heaped upon liberals by other liberals and the mainstream media for ObamaCare, there looms a brutal truth:

Nothing, repeat nothing, in which President Obama has been involved, has actually worked.

After all, getting 219 Marxists in the U.S. House and 51 in the U.S. Senate to vote in favor of displacing private enterprise in favor of government run medicine is hardly a notable achievement.

Bringing 30 million uninsured into the ranks of the insured while lowering health care costs, reducing the deficit, and maintaining quality health care would be a remarkable achievement.

Except for the fact that there is nothing in this president’s resume to suggest that anything but failure is likely.

Consider please:

When President Obama signed that trillion-dollar “stimulus” into law last February, he promised that the bill would create or save 3.5 to 4 million jobs. Thirteen months later, unemployment hovers near ten percent and liberals now want to throw even more billions at the problem.

Will ObamaCare work out like the president’s misguided and expensive “stimulus” failure?

There is more.

One of Obama’s first acts after taking office was to announce that GITMO would be closed and that KSM and other terrorists would face civilian, rather than military, trials. Thirteen months later, Obama been forced to retreat from that ill-conceived foolishness which was designed with little or no regard for homeland security.

Will the effect of ObamaCare be as damaging to the U.S. economy and health care system as was his foolish pandering to left wing extremists in the matter of GITMO and homeland security?

And so it is with issue after issue. From the Israel-Palestinian conflict, to Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons, to the global warming fiasco, to the exploding federal deficit, to violence at our borders with Mexico, to the ever worsening home market, to cash-for-clunkers, and on and on. .

Barack Obama has nothing but repeated failures in his resume as president. He is not qualified to be President of the United States, regardless of where he was actually born.

Why should health care reform be different?

On top of everything else, the Social Security System is now in a negative cash flow situation. Another Utopian solution from the loony left lies in ruins.

Barack Obama and his warped sense of change will ultimately fail for one simple reason: His ideas are based on false assumptions and flawed logic.

Health care reform will surely go down in flames as will the Marxist regime now occupying the White House and Congress.

The $60,000 question: Can America avoid total collapse while the Obama machine destroys itself?

“Tanning Tax” Rooted in Racism!

By John W. Lillpop

Anyone who has given the matter serious thought has concluded that ObamaCare is Marxist pap; an ill-conceived 2,100 pages of unconstitutional drivel better suited for the bottom of bird cages and bed pans than codified into law as part of an allegedly advanced civilization.

In addition to its legal, political, and medical shortcomings, ObamaCare actually promotes racism on a scale not seen since the dark, dark days of Jim Crow.

Specifically, the “Tanning tax” is a racist scheme meant to scald millions of weak-minded women who live their lives obsessed with artificially altering their skin pigmentation for reasons not fully understood by those who dabble in abnormal psychology.

Without exception, such women are Caucasian. bone-idle air heads; all are cursed with a surplus of time and money on their hands.

Think about it: How many African-American or Hispanic women while away the hours (and the family fortune) strapped to a tanning bench in a desperate attempt to look even darker than nature decreed?

Damn few is the second best answer; zero is the correct one.

Architects of the “Tanning Tax” were fully aware that people of color would never be burdened by this levy, and that its sting would be felt only by Caucasian women.

This means that white women were singled-out for taxation solely because of race and the insane liberal compulsion to use the tax code unfairly and with malice.

As a result, ObamaCare must be repealed; if for no reason other than to get government off the backs of innocent divas who are being victimized by this wretched injustice!


ObamaCare a Huge Hit—With Fidel Castro!

By John W. Lillpop

Those who doubt that ObamaCare is an evil Communist scheme that will destroy our way of life: Listen up to the words of the second most dedicated Marxist in our Hemisphere.

That would be Fidel Castro, the dried-up old Commie prune from Cuba, the only man outside of Moscow more smitten with Marxism than our very own Barack Obama.

As reported at Yahoo.com news, in part, Castro applauded America for falling into the clutches of destructive socialism:

“HAVANA (AP) -- It perhaps was not the endorsement President Barack Obama and the Democrats in Congress were looking for.

“Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro on Thursday declared passage of American health care reform "a miracle" and a major victory for Obama's presidency, but couldn't help chide the United States for taking so long to enact what communist Cuba achieved decades ago.

"We consider health reform to have been an important battle and a success of his (Obama's) government," Castro wrote in an essay published in state media, adding that it would strengthen the president's hand against lobbyists and "mercenaries."

“But the Cuban leader also used the lengthy piece to criticize the American president for his lack of leadership on climate change and immigration reform, and for his decision to send more troops to Afghanistan, among many other things.

“And he said it was remarkable that the most powerful country on earth took more than two centuries from its founding to approve something as basic as health benefits for all.

"It is really incredible that 234 years after the Declaration of Independence ... the government of that country has approved medical attention for the majority of its citizens, something that Cuba was able to do half a century ago," Castro wrote.”

Points well made, Mr. Castro.

Incidentally, when do you suppose your puny little nation-island will master the science of providing toilet paper for the Cuban people? In time for the next revolution, sir?

Still, by speaking out, Fidel Castro has provided invaluable insights for the American people: Namely, ObamaCare is just the first step toward economic and political doom.

Want to be just like Cuba, Pilgrims? Continue to elect Democrats!


“Reconcile,” as Defined by Progressives

By John W. Lillpop

A popular on-line dictionary defines the word reconcile thusly:

“To bring into agreement or harmony; make compatible or consistent: to reconcile differing statements; to reconcile accounts”

Harmony, agreement, compatible, and consistent? Really?

Honestly now, how often did those terms come to mind during the “reconciliation” process that Progressives used to pass health care reform?

In fact, the Obama-Pelosi-Reid Democracy wrecking crew did their level best to avoid reconciliation with any position that was outside the Marxist ideal.

Mind you, diversity is still the Holy Grail of Liberalism, except for health care which was so urgent that only the narrowest of Marxist definitions was permitted.

Reconcile, when used by Progressives, is the formal process of legislative manipulation designed to achieve a controversial objective despite widespread opposition among the governed, when the issue at hand is of such gravity as to render the principles of rule of law and democratic governance necessarily subservient to the immediate wishes of the elitist governing class, so-called Progressives.

To reconcile according to the Progressive definition, means to cajole, bribe, deceive, obstruct, dismember, attack, slaughter, lie, misrepresent, deny, extort, slander, obscure, hide, execute, mischaracterize, sabotage, and any and all other acts of sleight-of-hand chicanery and tom foolery as may be needed to achieve one’s Marxist objective and to make said accomplishment appear to be the will of the people.

Antonyms include open, honest government, integrity, rule of law, Constitutional, fair, decent, democratic, representative, equality, and American.

An excellent example would be the process of “reconciling” one’s bank statement. Under normal circumstances, one would compare all of the entries recorded in one’s private records to those generated by the banking institution.

Differences are reconciled, which means to determine the reasons for those differences and to make or request that correcting entries be made to either one’s private records of those of the bank in order to achieve harmony and balance.

However, were one to use the Obama-Pelosi-Reid formula for reconciliation, the first step would be to select the desired account balance, irrespective of the actual sum. Incidentally, the desired balance will always be greater than the actual.

Next, one would pretend that the bank records were in error and irrelevant. Need an extra $15,000.to meet your obligations this month?

No problem, if you are a Progressive. Simply pretend that the bank records are wrong and continue to write checks as if that extra $15,000 were in your account. And pretend that the bank agrees with your numbers!

What happens when the checks start to bounce because of your “creative” bookkeeping?

Again, no problem. Simply blame the bank for failure to properly fund your account and apply for a government backed bailout.

ObamaCare: The undoing of civilized reconciliation as we know it.


The Immoral Equivalent of Slavery

By John W. Lillpop

Using the power of government to take one man’s wealth against
his will in order to enrich another is un-American, immoral, and

Those 30 million or so uninsured Americans who are celebrating
the passage of ObamaCare may feel elated now, but how long with
that glee last?

How much joy will there be if they happen to be caught in the
cross hairs of the next “spread the wealth” stealing campaign by
Barack Obama?

You know, a new Obama climate tax on American citizens to fund
the war against global warming in China and India? It is YOUR
obligation as a world citizen to pay up, you know.

The whole idea of “spreading the wealth” is acceptable only
when the spreading is into your bank account. But what about
when your assets are spread to others, solely because some
Marxist bureaucrat thinks that you live too well?

The very notion that government should be authorized to
discriminate against certain citizens in order to advantage others
is repulsive and foreign to the American way of thinking.

Yet there it is, at the center of ObamaCare. If this nightmare
stands, Obama and his Marxist goons will try to apply it to
scores of other programs.

Will you be the next victim of “spreading the wealth” communism?

Fret Not, Patriots: This Too Shall Pass

By John W. Lillpop

As expected, mainstream media are hailing passage of Obama’s health care obsession as “historic” and a “major victory” for the Marxist-in- chief.

Some even go so far as to suggest that the bribery, corruption, lying, numbers manipulations, broken campaign promises, secrecy, violations of the U.S. Constitution, and anti-democratic gyrations needed to pass the abomination signals the restoration of unbridled power to The One and those leftist Moon Bats who support his pernicious assault on the American way of life.

Contrary to the prevailing media babble, the only thing really historic about Obama is the fact that this naïve community organizer damn near tripped over majorities in both chambers of Congress with his own inept leadership and wrong headed excesses.

Indeed, given the number of like-minded Marxists in the U.S. House and Senate, passing health care reform should have been a walk in the park, rather than nine-months of grueling experimentations in corruption and banana republic politics.

Barack Obama entered the fray with a public approval rating in the 60s. With his unprecedented mishandling of not just health care, but terrorism, foreign relations, the economy, jobs, and the federal deficit, this pompous and misguided elitist is now upside down in the approval ratings game.

To wit, more people now disapprove, than approve, of Barack Obama’s performance!

Where is “major victory” in that? And just how in Hades is ObamaCare going to help, rather than further erode, Obama in the eyes of a bitterly disenchanted electorate?

In what can only be described as grotesque chortling, smug Marxists are savoring their press clippings, confident that they have “gamed” the Constitution, established Congressional rules and procedures, and the American people with their outrageous tom foolery.

A word of caution is in order to those celebrating their alleged “major victory”: The battle has just begun, and you have given your opponents a major campaign issue that will keep on giving until your sorry rears are driven out of Washington, D.C., en masse!

The only “major victory” to come from ObamaCare will be the complete devastation of Obamamania just 24 months after inception!

Like other tragic moments in American history, this too shall Pass!

Some even go so far as to suggest that the bribery, corruption, lying, numbers manipulations, broken campaign promises, secrecy, violations of the U.S. Constitution, and anti-democratic gyrations needed to pass CommieCare signals the resurrection of the Fallen Messiah, a restoration of unbridled power to The One and those leftist demons who support his pernicious assault on American liberty and freedom.

Contrary to the prevailing media babble, the only thing really historic about Obama is the fact that this naïve community organizer damn near tripped over majorities in both chambers of Congress with his own inept leadership and wrong headed excesses.

Indeed, given the number of like-minded Marxists in the U.S. House and Senate, passing health care reform should have been a walk in the park, rather than nine-months of grueling experimentations in corruption and banana republic politics.

Barack Obama entered the fray with a public approval rating in the 60s. With his unprecedented mishandling of not just health care, but terrorism, foreign relations, the economy, jobs, and the federal deficit, this pompous and misguided elitist is now upside down in the approval ratings game.

To wit, more people now disapprove, than approve, of Barack Obama’s performance!

Where is “major victory” in that? And just how in Hades is CommieCare going to help, rather than further erode, Obama in the eyes of a bitterly disenchanted electorate?

In what can only be described as grotesque chortling, smug Marxists are savoring their press clippings this morning confident that they have “gamed” the Constitution, established Congressional rules and procedures, and the American people with their outrageous tom foolery.

A word of caution is in order to lefties celebrating their alleged “major victory” in the health care tug of war: The battle has just begun, and you have given your opponents a major campaign issue that will keep on giving until your sorry tushes are driven out of Washington, D.C., en masse!

The only “major victory” to come from CommieCare will be the complete devastation of Obamamania just 24 months after inception!

CommieCare is not what the people want!


St. Joseph Answers Speaker Pelosi’s Prayer

Satire by John W. Lillpop

Demonstrating that the “separation of Church and State” is not absolute when it comes to progressive ideas, Speaker Nancy Pelosi has invoked her religious faith into the brutal debate over health care reform.

As reported throughout the media, Pelosi did so with the following announcement:

“Today is the feast of St. Joseph the Worker, particularly important to Italian-Americans. It’s a day where we remember and pray to St. Joseph to benefit the workers of America, and that’s exactly what our health-care bill will do. … Every order that you can think of was there [on a list of endorsements], saying they wanted us to pass this life-affirming legislation”

The House bill is Life affirming? For who—abortion doctors and ambulance chasing lawyers?

Well, that is Nancy Pelosi, for you!

We have no way of knowing with any degree of certainty just how St. Joseph would react to Pelosi’s prayer, if at all.

However, it is not inconceivable that he would reply to the Speaker in the following manner:

Dear Speaker Pelosi:

We are in receipt of your impassioned plea for divine intervention in order to pass the health care reform bill in the United States House of Representatives so that a final bill can be forwarded to President Obama for signature.

As we understand your prayer, it is essential that this legislation be passed before the upcoming Easter break so that members of the House are not forced to confront their constituents before voting.

This exposes a serious question concerning your commitment to upholding the U.S. Constitution and serving the will of the people, as you and your colleagues have sworn to do.

Madam Speaker, if this health care reform bill would, in fact, benefit people, as you have stated, and if it is truly “what the people want,” as President Obama has stated, why is it necessary to dodge those people before the votes are cast?

Other concerns arise as well, including:

* We understand that the president and Members of Congress would be exempt from the provisions of the proposed reform. If reform is the right thing to do, why are powerful government officials exempt, when the meek and powerless are forced to participate?

* The bill reportedly provides government funding for abortion, the taking of the most innocent and vulnerable of all human life.

We understand that you are a member of the Catholic Church. May we remind you that abortion is considered a grievous sin, a position that the Fathers of the Church have made abundantly clear time and time again?

* Much of the funding needed to implement the bill is based on granting government the power to unilaterally seize wealth from one man in order to enrich another. That practice, known as “soaking the rich,” is the immoral equivalent of forced servitude or slavery, a practice long ago outlawed by U.S. law.

* We understand that the bill forces American citizens, except for the president and the Congress, to purchase health insurance or face severe financial consequences and possible incarceration.

Madam Speaker, how is such heavy handed government involvement consistent with the concept of free agency? Moreover, is it not true that this is a violation of the U.S. Constitution?

* We understand that the proposed reform would diminish services and options to senior citizens, those who have the greatest need for health care. Where is the hope in that, Madam Speaker?

* We understand that the bill would increase America’s federal deficit and raise taxes, both of which would break campaign promises made by President Obama and which are otherwise unwise.

In addition to the specific concerns identified above, we note that according to independent opinion polls, the proposed reform is opposed by a significant majority of the American people. How, then, is the bill a reflection of a free and democratic people?

Finally, we note with distress that the bill was crafted by conducting negotiations in secret, another broken campaign promise, and that bribery and deceit appear to have been rampant throughout the process.

Given the concerns identified above, Madam Speaker, we believe that the bill must be abandoned in total, and that the issue be revisited in an open and honest manner, one that satisfies both the spiritual and ethical standards one would expect from a blessed America.

Accordingly, your request is hereby denied, and you are advised to cast a NO vote yourself.

Spiritually Yours,

St. Joseph


Will Obama’s Disdain for “Procedural Rules” Destroy America?

By John W. Lillpop

The most telling statement from the March 17 President Obama-Bret Bair donnybrook was this statement by the president:

"I don't spend a lot of time worrying about what the procedural rules are in the House or Senate," he said.

That, in a nutshell, sums up Obama’s cavalier position on health care, immigration, and other vital issues facing this nation. It is shared by so-called other progressives such as Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi.

Roughly translated it means:

“The rule of law, including the Constitution and implementing instruments, are symbolically important, but must never be allowed to delay or obstruct the greater good as defined by progressive elitists.

“After all, the Founding Fathers were exclusively Caucasian males,Christian, overtly heterosexual, and English-speaking.

“There were no women or people of color in their numbers. The interests of those who practice Islam, Buddhism, Hindu or who are atheist were not represented. Likewise, gays, lesbians, and transgender were ignored.

“There were no impoverished poor, uneducated, or handicapped among the Founding Fathers who were, without exception, well educated and well to do.

“Because of the appalling lack of diversity among the Founding Fathers, the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights simply do not apply to America in the 21st century.”

That sort of convoluted thinking explains why the birth-certificate issue is irrelevant to Obama and the left. Its why Nancy Pelosi and those of her ilk believe that “reconciliation,” “slaughter house,” and other legislative gimmicks have merit.

Progressives have no respect for American history and see no reason to be bound by precepts that are 234 years old.

The acquisition of power through whatever means necessary is all that matters to demented liberals.

The big question: Can such wrongheaded thinking be corrected in a civil manner?


Frequently Asked Questions about ObamaCare

Satire by John W. Lillpop

Moon bats who voted for Barack Obama are obviously delighted that the U.S. House may use the Slaughter House option to ram ObamaCare down the throats of the American people, perhaps voting as early as Saturday next.

However, many people are confused and do not know exactly what to expect. The following list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) was hacked from DNC computers and shows the answers that Democrat voters are being fed:

Q: My next health insurance premium is due on April 5, 2010. Should I pay it, or will Obama handle it for me?

A: Registered Democrats and Independents who voted for ‘Bama are automatically covered as of 4/1/2010. President Obama has requested that instead of wasting more money on insurance premiums, these folks should make a generous, tax-deductible contribution to the Democrat party. Write “Ben Nelson-Mary Landrieu payoffs” on your check.

Registered Republicans and Independents who voted for John McCain will not be covered under ObamaCare until their 65th birthday or five years following the president’s signature, whichever comes first. Such people must continue to pay their overpriced premiums or risk a $5,000 annual fine and five years in jail.

Q: I am an illegal alien from Latin America who desperately needs transsexual surgery to align my sexual plumbing with my natural urges and instincts. I am bilingual, but only in Spanish and Mexican.

Am I covered, and when can I trade my useless penis for replacement parts that will set me free?

A: Good news, Pedro! As it turns out, you are covered as of 4/1/2010, just like the dopey American citizens who will end up paying for your switch.

To qualify, simply provide proof of your illegal alien status to the attending surgeon at least twenty minutes before anesthesia is administered.

One word of caution: Do not speak even a single word of English. Doing do may disqualify you immediately.

Q: I am eight plus months pregnant with twin boys. The father and I are not married and we have agreed that I will get an abortion. From a financial view, should we have the abortion now or wait until later this year?

A: We cannot dispense medical advice, but recommend that you ask your physician if he or she can guarantee that your brats will not pop out before April 1, 2010.

If premature delivery is not a risk, we advise waiting until mid-April to nuke the brats. By doing so, you will automatically qualify for the ObamaCare late-term rebate, which can save you thousands!

Q: Mother is 54 years old and in need of bypass heart surgery. She is still very active in GOP politics including her role as a top fundraiser for Sarah Palin. What are her options under ObamaCare?

A: We recommend that Mum apply for assisted suicide in a state where that procedure is legal, but wait until after April 1. Good news: Legal assisted suicide is fully covered (no co-pay) for Republicans and Independents who voted for McCain.

There you go! The Democrat party looking out for the little guy as always!

When Did People’s House become a “Self-Executing Slaughter House”?

By John W. Lillpop

There was a time in American history when the U.S. House of Representatives was fondly known as “The People’s House” in recognition of the fact that House members were closest to the needs and interests of their local constituents.

It was a term of endearment, one that seems especially out-of-place these days given the bizarre behavior of Speaker Nancy Pelosi and most Democrats.

Indeed, under the irresponsible and reckless leadership of Speaker Pelosi, terms such as “self-executing” and “slaughter house” are being used to describe the procedural maneuvering and sleight-of-hand pranks that Democrats are resorting to.

The issue is said to be about health care reform, but, in fact, the machinations and unseemly legislative contortions are all about saving face for the most arrogant and out-of-touch president in the nation’s history.

As disgraced former CBS news anchor Dan Rather recently commented, the Obama mystique from a year ago has completely dissipated, and now the man is not capable of selling watermelons, much less a trillion dollar, deficit-busting attack on the best health care system in the world.

ObamaCare is so distasteful to so many people for so many reasons that Democrats have decided to ignore the U.S. Constitution, most American citizens, all Republicans, and established rules in order to pass the most onerous bill ever conceived.

Even then, there is no certainty that the House will pass--whatever that term is deemed to mean—any health care reform legislation any time soon.

Once again, Democrats have over reached and willfully destroyed any opportunity they might have had for moderate change.

In that sense, “self-executing slaughter house” is a most apt label for Nancy Pelosi’s battered House of Representatives!


Can America Recover from the Obama Presidency?

By John W. Lillpop

President Obama has managed, in just fourteen short months, to turn the words hope and change into bitter reminders of the fact that high-sounding oratory, without substance to back it up, can lead to disaster.

America used to have an independent, unbiased mainstream media that we relied on to bring simplistic rhetoric and exaggerated promises strewn about by ambitious politicians into perspective.

Like a school of hungry sharks sensing freshly-spilled blood in the water, American media could be counted on to rip and tear away at vulnerable wounds in order to uncover skeletal remains lurking in the closets of those whom would govern.

Vetting by the media was an invaluable, although despised, part of the American political process that protected lazy Americans from the foolish prattle proliferated by politicians without substance in their dossiers.

We counted on blood-thirsty sharks in the media pool to challenge the words, integrity, and claimed capabilities of the candidates and to share their findings in an objective and reasoned manner.

In a most unfortunate turn of events, the media lost its collective taste for blood with the arrival of Barack Obama on the national political scene three years ago.

This young, handsome man was highly articulate, obviously intelligent, very liberal, and photogenic.

Best of all, Barack Obama was an African-American with the potential to assuage liberal guilt over slavery, Jim Crow laws, and a history of racial discrimination, all in one fell swoop.

He was immediately bequeathed the Torch of John F. Kennedy by the media, still in awe that a black man could be so clean and articulate. Visions of a resurrected Camelot danced about in the minds of leftists from coast to coast.

There were no probing reviews of Obama’s candidacy. No one bothered to ask what he knew about the global economy, foreign policy, or even American history. No one bothered to do a critical assessment of his experience and accomplishments with regard to the responsibilities of the US Presidency.

Barack Obama was largely an unknown quantity to the American people and to the mainstream media three years ago; his tenure in the US Senate was brief and undistinguished. There was precious little in his background to suggest that he was qualified to take on the presidency.

However, he was eloquent, liberal, and black and not George W. Bush. Those qualities apparently trumped the need for substance, at least in the hearts and minds of the star-struck media.

Who the hell needs substance when the candidate can drive a “thrill” up and down the legs of hard-nosed journalists like Chris Matthews?

In many ways, the Obama candidacy and presidency are a parody of the 2003 flick, Head of State, starring Chris Rock, in which an inexperienced and unqualified candidate rides BS and circumstances into the White House.

The Obama insanity also rivals the Elvis Presley craze of the 1950s, when the young truck driver from Tennessee turned the music world on its heels by swiveling his hips and introducing CHANGE called Rock and Roll to an eager public.

The major difference between Elvis Presley and Barack Obama, however, is that at least Presley could carry a tune and strum a guitar.

The big question of our time comes down to this: Can America recover from the disastrous Obama presidency?


Barack Obama Continues to Race Full Throttle toward Oblivion

By John W. Lillpop

CNN’s Jack Cafferty is many different things to different people. However, the one thing that Cafferty will never be accused of is being a conservative. That is just not in his DNA or genetic makeup.

Yet there he was, on CNN no less, claiming that the Obama campaign promise concerning transparency was but another Obama “lie told to get elected.”

Excuse me? Is this the same CNN that has literally been a cheer leader for the One over the past two years?

The only logical explanation is that CNN is experiencing a network-wide spiritual awakening. No other answer makes sense as the video will attest:

Obama’s problems with the truth are hardly the only burr in his knickers these days. There is the little matter of Israel and the sacking of Joe Biden last week.

Obama’s tirade against Israel since then is unprecedented. Only Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad holds Israel in greater contempt than The One, with the main difference being that at least Ahmadinejad is open about his hatred for all Jews and the Jewish state.

Barack Obama, on the other hand, has tried to mask his contempt and has, alas, failed miserably.

Perhaps it is time for Obama to formally recuse himself from issues involving Israel given his Muslim background and anti-Israel bias?

America's Image: Beacon of Light or Banana?

By John W. Lillpop

America has long been looked up to as a beacon of light in a world where corruption, greed, and tyranny often mock the very concepts of freedom, fairness, and rule of rule.

We were different, or so we thought, because of our Constitution, the balancing of power assured by having separate, but equal, branches of government, and a heritage of commitment to the rule of law.

Ours was not a government where matters of great importance were decided in dark, musty rooms by special interest sleaze merchants and elitist politicians willing to sell influence for personal enrichment rather than pursuing the common good.

Government “by and for the people,” was understood to mean open, honest resolution of differences, regardless of how substantial those differences. Adherence to rule of law meant that established rules and laws would always apply, regardless of how urgent the issue, and without regard to the intensity of the passions with which opposing views were held.

Above all else, executing the will of the people was of paramount importance. Advancing the career objectives of ambitious politicians was not.

Sleights of hand and behind the scenes chicanery are accepted as the mother’s milk of dictatorships and banana republics, but were understood to have no place here in America, home to the most sophisticated and civilized political system in the world.

Unfortunately, the tragic manner in which health care reform has been mangled by Congress and the White House has snuffed America’s image as a beacon of light and hope, and replaced it with that of the banana, the symbol of lawlessness, corruption, rule by fiat, and everything antithetical to democratic self-governance.

Over the course of the past six months, we have witnessed a government completely out of touch with, and actually intolerant of, the views of the American people.

We have stood aghast at a government that has deliberately snubbed the will of the people in order to pacify an incompetent president whose disapproval rating is at 52 percent and rising.

We have been shocked by a Congress that is willing to forgo established rules and procedures in order to “get it done,” it being socialization of the greatest health care system in the world, a process not favored by the American people.

Despite all of the cajoling, elbow bending, bribing and other unethical behavior executed on behalf of Barack Obama by Democrat leaders, there is still insufficient support among Democrats to pass the flawed ObamaCare into law.

All of this means that another level of chicanery and banana-republic tactics may be employed by Democrats to get their way,

As reported, in part, by the Washington Post (1), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi may attempt to pass health care without having members vote on it:

“After laying the groundwork for a decisive vote this week on the Senate's health-care bill, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested Monday that she might attempt to pass the measure without having members vote on it.

“Instead, Pelosi (D-Calif.) would rely on a procedural sleight of hand: The House would vote on a more popular package of fixes to the Senate bill; under the House rule for that vote, passage would signify that lawmakers "deem" the health-care bill to be passed.

“The tactic -- known as a "self-executing rule" or a "deem and pass" -- has been commonly used, although never to pass legislation as momentous as the $875 billion health-care bill. It is one of three options that Pelosi said she is considering for a late-week House vote, but she added that she prefers it because it would politically protect lawmakers who are reluctant to publicly support the measure.

"It's more insider and process-oriented than most people want to know," the speaker said in a roundtable discussion with bloggers Monday. "But I like it," she said, "because people don't have to vote on the Senate bill."

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, not a man with whom conservatives often see eye-to-eye, hit the nail on the head when he said that the “American people are getting tired of this crap.”

Indeed, we are, Senator.

The big question: Are there enough Democrats in Congress with the integrity and back bone needed to restore that beacon of light and hope to America’s legacy?




While Innocent Americans Murdered in Mexico, Obama Works on Amnesty!

By John W. Lillpop

Although no one in the Obama Administration seems to give a damn, the nation of Mexico continues to decay further and further into anarchy, a tragedy which recently resulted in the murder of innocent Americans affiliated with the U.S. Consulate in this god-forsaken, third-world, failed state. (1)

As murder and mayhem rage out of control in Mexico, the likelihood that the carnage will spill over onto America soil increases with each passing day. In fact, incursions across the US border by Mexican military forces have already been reported and are a chilling reminder of why our borders must be secured and fortified militarily. (2)

And what are the president of the United States and the US Congress doing while Mexico wages war on our sovereign state?

Incredibly enough, our dithering president and his Democrat colleagues in Congress are too busy working on plans to grant amnesty to the 20 million or so invading criminals from Mexico and points south, to concern themselves with defending the homeland.

Moreover, misguided yokels like Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano prefer to think of illegal aliens as “newly arrived refuges” rather than criminals who have deliberately violated US borders and immigration laws.

In their mindless mania to grow the Democrat Party at any cost, Obama and the Democrats have overlooked a vital fact about illegal aliens currently in America: Namely, should hostilities break out between the US and Mexico over Mexico’s inability to control its drug crimes, the loyalties of most illegal aliens will be with Mexico.

The notion that Mexican peasants come to America in pursuit of liberty and freedom and to join the American “family” is too ludicrous to stand.

Mexicans come to America illegally because our politicians are stupid enough to reward them with free health care, education, employment, food, housing, and, in the most extreme cases, protection from federal immigration authorities.

Most invaders have little or no interest in American values, or in “assimilating” into mainstream America, a fact borne out by their universal refusal to learn English.

Granting amnesty to illegal aliens will only serve to encourage another 40 million or so to violate our borders and laws.

If our president and Congress had any commitment whatsoever to the preservation of American culture and to protecting the American people from harm, the administration would be working to deport invading interlopers back to Mexico.

In addition, the Obama administration should seal off the Mexican border with armed forces to protect American interests against drug lords and the corrupt Mexican government.

Do it for the children, Mr. President!

(1) Mexico Gunmen Kill American Consulate Staff


“CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico (Reuters) – Gunmen in the drug war-plagued Mexican city of Ciudad Juarez killed two Americans and a Mexican linked to the local U.S. consulate, an attack U.S. President Barack Obama said "outraged" him.

“An American woman working at the consulate in Ciudad Juarez, just over the border from El Paso, Texas, and her U.S. husband were fatally shot by suspected drug gang hit men in broad daylight on Saturday as they left a consulate social event, U.S. and Mexican officials told Reuters.

“A Mexican man married to another consulate employee was killed around the same time in another part of the city after he and his wife left the same event, a U.S. official said.

“The U.S. official, who asked not to be identified, said it was not clear if the victims had been specifically targeted, and the motive for the attacks was unknown.
“Bloodshed has exploded in recent months in Ciudad Juarez as the head of the Juarez cartel, Vicente Carrillo Fuentes, fights off a bloody offensive by Mexico's No. 1 fugitive drug lord, Joaquin "Shorty" Guzman, at the worst hotspot of Mexico's three-year-old drug war.

"The president is deeply saddened and outraged by the news," said White House National Security Council spokesman Mike Hammer. He said Obama ‘shares in the outrage of the Mexican people at the murders of thousands in Ciudad Juarez and elsewhere in Mexico.’

“The U.S. State Department updated its warning on travel to Mexico to say it had authorized the departure of dependents of U.S. government personnel from consulates in Ciudad Juarez and five other northern border cities.”
“Nearly 19,000 people have been killed since President Felipe Calderon came to power in Mexico in late 2006 and launched a military assault on the country's powerful drug cartels, sparking a urge in violence that has alarmed Washington, foreign investors and tourists.”

(2) Mexican Helicopter over Texas


“BROWNSVILLE — The Zapata County sheriff Thursday was questioning why a Mexican military helicopter was hovering over homes on the Texas side of the Rio Grande.
“It was one of the more jarring incidents of the fourth week of border tensions sparked by drug killings — and rumors of drug killings — in the Mexican state of Tamaulipas.

“Sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez said he'd reviewed photos of the chopper flown by armed personnel Tuesday over a residential area known as Falcon Heights-Falcon Village near the binational Falcon Lake, just south of the Starr-Zapata county line. He said the helicopter appeared to have the insignia of the Mexican navy.

“It's always been said that the Mexican military does in fact ... that there have been incursions,” Gonzalez said. “But this is not New Mexico or Arizona. Here we've got a river, there's a boundary line. And then of course having Falcon Lake, Falcon Dam, it's a lot wider. It's not just a trickle of a river, it's an actual dam. You know where the boundary's at.”

“The sighting came amid ongoing fighting between the Gulf Cartel and its former enforcers, Los Zetas. The mounting death toll and crisis of fear in cities opposite the Texas border have drawn global attention, as has a news blackout in affected cities with the kidnappings of eight Mexican journalists, at least one of whom was killed.

“As violence continued Thursday with a highway shootout in the state of Tamaulipas, a Senate subcommittee in Washington heard testimony that drug cartels are trying to infiltrate U.S. agencies along the border, with corruption cases among Homeland Security personnel on the rise.

“In the past two years, there have been 400 public corruption cases involving federal, state and local law enforcement agents originating from the Southwest border region, Kevin Perkins, FBI assistant director for criminal investigations, told the Senate Homeland Security subcommittee on preparedness.

“In addition to the highway battle, news from Tamaulipas on Thursday included a 25-year-old man found dead on a roadside in Miguel Alemán. On Wednesday, three people died in two gunbattles in Reynosa.

“Four other deaths have been reported since Saturday in the cities of Mier, Camargo and Miguel Alemán.

“The Mexican government's role in combating the violence remained unclear. The army presence in some cities appeared sporadic, and the navy has led operations including the December takeout of kingpin Arturo Beltran Leyva in Mexico City.

“Gonzalez, the Zapata sheriff, said he couldn't confirm reports that the helicopter was scoping the home of a drug criminal. He said the incursion about a mile over the border occurred over a neighborhood populated by many U.S. Customs officers who work at area border crossings — and they knew what they were seeing.

“My understanding is the U.S. military were informed,” he said. “I don't know what action was taken, if any.”

President Obama’s Urgent Need for “Reform” School

Satire by John W. Lillpop

With the health care nightmare nearly over, President Obama is moving ahead with his communist agenda for reforming education, immigration, US Senate rules, traditional marriage, financial institutions, US military policy with respect to homosexuals, executive compensation, campaign financing, and last, but hardly least, the system for crowning college football champions.

A terrorist bill of rights is also in the offing, once America has been subdued into remission.

In fact, excepting only the rights and advantages enjoyed by labor unions, left-wing lobbyists, abortionists, ACORN volunteers, the New Black Panther Party, CAIR, La Reza, 40 or so Czars hidden in the bowels of the White House, and his own wretched addiction to smoking, this president plans to reform everything!

If the words change and reform were not available to him, Barack Obama would be mute most of the time.

Given the fact that the president is so smitten with reform, how is it that his education in this area is so woefully inadequate? Having a degree from Yale simply is not good enough for the guerrilla war fare that a true reformer will inevitably face.

Mr. President, its time to go back to school—reform school, that is.

A well rounded curriculum in reform should include the following studies. Approximate times for completion are indicated for your information sir:

Prepared Especially for President Barack Obama

Year One:

Economic Studies and Exploitation Analysis--Basic arithmetic including addition, subtraction, and programmed calculator malfunction.

Essential for developing cogent arguments to convince skeptics that adding 30 million people to the ranks of the insured will actually cut health care costs and that granting amnesty to 20 million illegal aliens will actually enrich American society and culture while curing the depression.

Can also be used to implement systems for fudge-counting new and or saved jobs without fear of being caught.

Includes a special study entitled “Ending Trillion Dollar-Phobia—A Must for Practicing Liberals in the 21st Century”

Required Commitment:

105 hours a week for twelve full months. All courses taught in Mandarin Chinese. No excused absences allowed.

Year Two:

Overcoming Constitutional Barriers to Reform--Study of the basics of constitutional law including strategies and ploys for quickly implementing reforms that are clearly unconstitutional.

Absolutely essential for enacting meaningful reforms like mandating the purchase of health insurance, ignoring borders and immigration laws in order to increase the base of the Democrat Party, and making the president’s appointment of Czars permanently exempt from both Congressional oversight and investigations by the Department of Justice.

Includes a “starter kit” for delaying and ignoring law suits meant to derail needed reforms through the use of mostly non-violent briefs.

Required Commitment:

105 hours a week for twelve full months. All courses taught in private, Cameras and recorders prohibited. No excused absences allowed.

Year Three:

Using the Power of Reform—an intense review of the materials covered in years one and two with a special focus on bringing America back down to earth through forced communism.

Required Commitment:

105 hours a week through the month of October. Depending on the results of the 2012 elections, may include a special course entitled, “Transitioning Back to Local Politics from the Heady White House Days,” with a special guest lecture by another one term Democrat failure, James Earl Carter.

Graduation Protocol:

If the elections of 2012 turn out as they should, Barack Obama will be given four first-class, one-way bus tickets back to Chicago. And what a great day that will be!


Financial Meltdown a Product of Liberalism Gone Amuck

Satire By John W. Lillpop

Like President Obama and the other 535 clue less scoundrels in Washington, D.C., I have but a foggy understanding of the devastating global meltdown that continues to wreak havoc all across the globe.

Speaking candidly, the entire mess sounds like a corrupt pyramid scheme. Instead of soap, the scam artists were selling and trading mortgage loans and using your 401(k) and pension money to fund their poncey schemes.

When the carnage spreads across the seas, the confusion is multiplied many times.

For example, in 2008 we were told that Iceland was on the brink of bankruptcy. Freaking Iceland, for heavens sake!


Just how in the hell can a few barefoot hayseeds in North Carolina who blew their tobacco profits on moonshine rather than making their mortgage payments cause a foreign nation to go belly up?

What exactly does my $700,000 starter castle in San Jose--a two bedroom, one bath, 1,000 square foot delight with attached carport--have to do with anything in France? Or Germany?

Next question: Can I decide which country to knock out? I would gladly skip two or three mortgage payments if that would send Iran or North Korea into debtors' hell.

Actually, all of this foolishness is the latest failure resulting from simplistic "progressive" solutions.

This time, liberals decided that having a home is the birthright of all Americans and most illegal aliens as well. Forget about being qualified.

It's the equivalent of affirmative action in housing.

You are breathing, right? And registered to vote Democrat?

That's good enough for liberals like Barney Frank and Christopher Dodd who think that credit screens, down payment requirements, and debt-to-income ratios are the evil tools of racists intent on keeping people of color down and out.

So far, unbridled liberals have left people of color black and blue--and in foreclosure and or bankruptcy.

Do the global community a huge favor and pay your damn mortgage and taxes on times, and vote a straight Republican ticket this November.

It is the "cool" thing for a global citizen to do!

What President Obama Needs to Know About Being an American

By John W. Lillpop

After nearly fourteen months in office, President Obama continues to demonstrate that he does not fully appreciate what it means to be an American.

In fact, his words and deeds reflect a disturbing lack of respect, if not outright contempt, for the basic values, culture, and history that make up this great nation.

The president would do well to educate himself about the following fundamental truths:

* America’s Founding Fathers received divine inspiration in creating the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights. The notion that the US Constitution is a “living” document is heresy.

* Our values, laws and culture reflect our Judeo-Christian roots. America is a Christian nation.

* America is not perfect. However, apologizing for American policies and leaders while on foreign soil is unacceptable.

* Americans are passionately proud of our cultural heritage, including self-governance under the rule of law, the English language, free market capitalism, and traditional family values.

* We profoundly disagree with the notion that America is no better than any other nation. America is home to the greatest society in human history---that is no coincidence.

* Government is antithetical to creativity and stifles free expression of the human spirit. Government programs never have, and never will, create jobs, prosperity or happiness.

* Rebelling against government expansion is a basic responsibility of all freedom-loving patriots and is what the first amendment is all about.

* Using government to “spread the wealth” by seizing wealth from one man in order to enrich another is the immoral equivalent of slavery.

* The U.S. Constitution guarantees equal opportunity to all. It does not guarantee a right to health care, a college education, home ownership or any other material advantage.

* Americans abhor being “talked down to”, regardless of how bright or clean and articulate the talker might be.

* Immigrants who come here legally are welcomed with open arms. Those who come illegally are invading criminals and not at all welcome.

* The role of education should be to teach mathematics, language, business and other basics. Using education to indoctrinate youth to liberal ideology is an abuse of power.

* The rights, feelings, and views of heterosexuals should be respected and honored when issues such as gays in the military and gay marriage are considered.

* Americans are naturally skeptical and suspicious of politicians. This is a good thing.

* Change which expands government by infringing on the rights and freedoms of individuals is dangerous and wrong.

The big question: How did a man with values so outside mainstream America win the US Presidency?

The answer: A complicit and biased liberal media!


A Democrat with Sludge in Her Past, Prison in Her Future!

Satire by John W. Lillpop

It was not supposed to turn out this way for Monica Conyers. After all, she was an elected official in Detroit, besides being betrothed to the powerful and influential John Conyers, a long-standing member of Nancy Pelosi’s House of Ill Repute.

People with Mrs. Conyers’ inside connections are not supposed to be held accountable for minor abuses like bribery, especially when such indiscretions occur at the local level.

Nonetheless, there she was in all her splendor and glory being sentenced to 37 months in prison for accepting the paltry sum of $6,000 in cash bribes.

What has this great nation come to when an African-American woman of influence is unable to avoid being treated like any other normal person who has pleaded guilty to a felony?

President Obama was supposed to CHANGE all of that, right? Where the hell was The One when the Conyers needed him so urgently? Off on a health care tangent, no doubt!

As reported at detroitnews.com, in part, (1)

“Detroit --Former Detroit City Councilwoman Monica Conyers was sentenced to 37 months in prison today, but not before controversy and confusion erupted when she announced she wanted to withdraw her guilty plea to bribery.

“In a loud and lengthy tirade that targeted federal prosecutors and the news media, Conyers said the court was trying to make an example of her and sentence her for crimes she did not commit.

"I'm just not going to jail for something I didn't do.”

“An angry Conyers left the courtroom vowing to appeal.

"I'm walking out the front door and I'm appealing this case because he didn't have no right to do that," Conyers said.”

In addition to her double-negative English boo-boo, the fiery Conyers probably made a mistake by declaring that she is not going to jail. That would seem to be out of her corrupt little hands.

However, Mrs. Conyers does strike a responsive cord in one sense: The real enemy of the people is hubby John Conyers. Why not ship him off to prison rather than wasting time on a a washed-up, two bit city council wench?

Oh, did I mention that Monica Conyers is a DEMOCRAT?

Can Slapstick Comedy Save America?

Satire by John W. Lillpop

When former comic and bankrupt talk-show host Al Franken was manacled to the U.S. Senate last year, political scholars feared that the most deliberative body in the world would be transformed into a haven for sick jokes and bizarre acting out.

The quiet dignity and reserved demeanor associated with the esteemed title, “US Senator” was, according to pundits, threatened by the unseemly image of Bozo the Clown as protector of the US Constitution, and 300 million or so Americans in the peanut galleries from coast to coast.

As it turns out, Bozo the Clown would be a major upgrade from the cast of characters making news headlines in Washington these days.

Consider these inspiring examples from the kooky, kinky world of progressive mania in Washington:

* While nude, Presidential Chief-of-Staff Rahm Emanuel trolls for votes in the showers of the US Congress;

* Emanuel’s “get out the vote” effort includes a naked man-to-man bout with Rep. Eric Massa, a Democrat accused of groping male staff members;

* Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi urges queasy Democrats to pass ObamaCare, quickly, so that “We can find out what’s in it.”
(And the liberal media considers Sarah Palin an unqualified air head?)

Side shows include the de-gaveling of tax guru Charles Rangel, the public castration of Attorney General Erick Holder for following Obama’s foolish demand for civilian trials of terrorists, and the always popular juggling act performed by VP Joe Biden to enhance the public perception of Special Olympics children.

All of these shenanigans would be hilarious were it not for the fact that progressive policies are so very dangerous and detrimental to the future of America!


Obama Debt: $20,000,000,000,000 by 2020!

By John W. Lillpop

As reported, in part, by spectator.org (1), Barack Obama’s reckless budget plans will cause the US debt to swell to $20,000,000,000,000 by year 2020.

Twenty trillion dollars!

Excerpts from the report:

“The Congressional Budget Office has released its assessment of President Obama's budget, and the results aren't pretty. According the analysis, deficits in the next decade will be worse than what the White House has projected, much higher than they would be if we were to follow current law, and even higher than what CBO had forecast last year.

“Between 2011 and 2020, the nation will accumulate $9.8 trillion in deficits as a under the Obama budget, according to the CBO, ending the decade with $20.3 trillion in public debt, which translates into a staggering 90 percent of gross domestic product (compared with the 53 percent Obama "inherited" in 2009).

By contrast, in its own budget release, the White House Office of Management and Budget had projected debt at 18.6 trillion in 2020 (or about $1.7 trillion less than the CBO).

“Obama's budget would also add more to the debt when it is viewed relative to the CBO baseline scenario that assumes current law is followed, as demonstrated by the area chart below. The blue area represents the additional debt created by Obama's budget -- while it may not look huge, the difference reaches about $5 trillion relative to the CBO baseline scenario (or added debt of 23 percent of GDP) by 2020.”

Is living in a fascist nanny state run by incompetent Marxists really worth $20 trillion dollars?

Of course not.

All the more reason why patriotic Americans people must reverse the mistakes of the 2008 election by taking the United States Congress out of the hands of Democrat politicians!
