Ten Lessons that Illegal Aliens Can Teach American Citizens













By John W. Lillpop

With the DREAM Act and comprehensive immigration reform in the news again, it is worth noting that the 12-40 million illegal aliens currently squatting in America have several valuable lessons that American citizens would do well to learn.

The Top Ten Lessons that Illegal Aliens Can Teach American Citizens:


1. “Undocumented” and “Illegal Alien” Are Old-School Terms, Meant to Demean Brown People Who Speak Spanish. “Newly Arrived Refugees” Is the Preferred Liberal-Speak Designation;

2. Enforcing U.S. Immigration Laws Is, According to Nancy Pelosi, Both un-American and Immoral;

3. With Respect to Latinos Migrating North,
America’s Borders Are Arbitrary and non-binding;

4. La Raza Is the Spanish Term for Race-Neutral;

5. Paying Income Taxes Without Provocation Is Reckless and Irresponsible. Best to Wait for a Great Offer from Democrats Running for Office;

6. One Can Choose to Vote Democratic, or To Not Vote At All. There Are No Other Options.

7. Learning to Read and Write English Is Entirely Optional, Based Solely on the Needs and Desires of the Alien.

8. U.S. Citizenship Is Not Required to Vote.

9. Massive Street Marches to Demand Citizenship Are Protected Free Speech When Carried Out By Illegal Aliens; Whereas, Counter Marches by U.S. Citizens Are Racist and Extreme Acts That Should Be Shut-down by Government;

10. Illegal Aliens Are Entitled to Free Education, Health Care, Food, and Housing As Just Compensation for Living in the Very Racist and Bigoted America.

250,000 Classified Documents Stolen, Disclosed: Still Trust Government?

By John W, Lillpop

In light of the unbelievable, mind-boggling story about 250,000 classified documents of recent vintage being stolen and released for public consumption, even the most ardent supporter of big government must be thinking twice about that position.

At least with respect to the Obama administration.

Even the usually-supportive Washington Post is taking Obama to task for the latest fiasco. As reported, in part, at Washington Post.com:

Is the United States of America really powerless to stop a nomadic cyber-hacker - who sleeps on people's couches and changes his hair color to avoid surveillance - from causing enormous damage to our national security?

Apparently, in the age of Obama, we are.

Four months ago, the criminal enterprise WikiLeaks released more than 75,000 stolen classified documents that, among other things, revealed the identities of more than 100 Afghans who were cooperating with America against the Taliban. The Obama administration condemned WikiLeaks' actions. The Justice Department said it was weighing criminal charges against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. The Pentagon warned that if WikiLeaks did not stand down and return other stolen documents it possessed, the government would "make them do the right thing."

And then nothing happened.

Now, WikiLeaks has struck a third time with what may prove to be its most damaging disclosures yet - a cache of more than 251,287 American diplomatic cables and directives, including more than 117,000 that are classified.


Is the Obama administration going to do anything - anything at all - to stop these serial disclosures of our nation's most closely guarded secrets? Just this past week, the federal government took decisive action to shut down more than 70 Web sites that were disseminating pirated music and movies. Hollywood is safe, but WikiLeaks is free to disseminate classified documents without consequence.”
Given Obama’s endless incompetence, the whole question of ObamaCare must be carefully re-examined.

Specifically, Can an administration that cannot manage classified documents be trusted with 17 percent of the domestic economy?

Just a Freeze, Sir?












By John W. Lillpop



President Obama wants all Americans to believe that he is genuinely committed to reducing the federal deficit and, to prove it, he has announced a freeze on federal pay for two years, excepting military personnel.

As usual when this president unloads a breaking news announcement, questions of substance remain unanswered.

For example, with regard to this announcement, the searing question is: Just a freeze, sir?

What about actually cutting bloated salaries being paid government workers so as to be more in line with wages paid in private enterprise?

Why not eliminate a least 25% of all federal positions, excepting military jobs?

Why not eliminate all new bailouts?

Why not eliminate most, if not all, of the 30+ Obama “czar” positions shielded from Congressional oversight and hidden from public view, positions that pay huge money to the incumbents?

Why not reduce Michelle Obama’s personal staff to two or three total, including chief-of-staff, from the current 30-40? What in the hell does the FLOUS need with 40 assistants?

Why not limit the number of trips that the president takes (like the recent junket to Mumbai) where there is no clear cost-benefit advantage to the American people?

Why not enforce immigration laws in order to get illegal aliens and the $100 billion plus annual cost associated with supporting these parasitical criminals off the backs of American taxpayers?

Why not eliminate all foreign aid?

Why not prohibit tax-payer funded abortions?

Why not repeal ObamaCare before it can do more damage to the economy?

Why not abandon cap and trade and other ludicrous environment hat tricks that would, if implemented, add hundreds of billions, or more, to the federal deficit?

Why not require a balanced federal budget based on real numbers and no new taxes?

In sum: When will President Obama finally regard deficit reduction as a serious matter, rather than an opportunity to make news with a mindless sound bite?

Obama Hoops Mishap: Payback for Giving “Lip Service” to Hispanic Causes?

Obama Hoops Mishap: Payback for Giving “Lip Service” to Hispanic Causes?






Satire by Lillpop


The curse that has burdened President Barack Obama throughout the month of November continued to ensnare The One on Thanksgiving Day, extending even to his most beloved venue: The basketball court.

As reported, in part, at the reference, Obama took a sharp elbow to the upper lip while playing defense in a pickup game on Turkey Day:

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama needed 12 stitches in his upper lip after taking an errant elbow during a pickup basketball game Friday morning with family and friends visiting for the Thanksgiving holiday, the White House said.

The White House did not initially name the person who caused the injury, but identified him later Friday as Rey Decerega, director of programs for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute.

The president had gone to nearby Fort McNair to indulge in a game of basketball, one of his favorite athletic pursuits. It was a five-on-five contest involving family and friends. Among the players were Obama's nephew, Avery Robinson, Education Secretary Arne Duncan and Reggie Love, Obama's personal assistant, who played at Duke University.

The White House said the injury happened during their fifth and final game when Decerega turned to take a shot and hit Obama, who was playing defense, in the mouth with his elbow.”


Obama’s weakness on defense should come as no great surprise, given the president’s advocacy for START and other queasy positions involving national security and homeland security.

What is surprising, however, is the aggressive play of Rey Decerega who is supposed to be an Obama ally.

Perhaps Decerega needs a few months, or years, of intense anger management tutoring to quell his frustration with Obama’s light-weight response to issues regarded as vital by Hispanic moon bats?

The burning question: Was Decerega’s elbow payback to Obama for what is perceived as “Lip Service” by Obama to Hispanic causes?

And why has the Secret Service not investigated Decerega’s elbow for possible assault on the lip of the President of the United States of America?

ICE Seizes Web Sites: What About Deporting Illegal Aliens, Nappy?

ICE Seizes Web Sites: What About Deporting Illegal Aliens, Nappy?


By John W. Lillpop

Janet Napolitano, boss lady at the Department of Home Land Security, has apparently expanded her sphere of influence beyond groping and fondling at U.S. airports to the new and vitally important horizon of seizing domain names.

As reported at reference 1, in part:


The investigative arm of the Homeland Security Department appears to be shutting down websites that facilitate copyright infringement.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has seized dozens of domain names over the past few days, according to TorrentFreak.

ICE appears to be targeting sites that help Internet users download copyrighted music, as well as sites that sell bootleg goods, such as fake designer handbags.

The sites are replaced with a note from the government: "This domain named has been seized by ICE, Homeland Security Investigations."


With all due respect to Secretary Napolitano, why in the world are ICE resources being used in this manner, rather than to combat the invasion of America by millions of criminals from south of the border?

Why is ICE not being used in San Francisco, Los Angeles and other so-called “Sanctuary Cities” to root out leftist moon bats in government that deliberately shield illegal aliens from the rule of law in defiance of federal law?

Why is ICE not mobilized to process and execute deportation orders for the 12-40 million invaders currently here?

Why are DHS resources not used to secure our borders from further invasions?

The overall burning question: Why Is Janet Napolitano still on the federal payroll after two years of miserable failure?

Christmas Message from Mohamed Osman Mohamud to Infidels in Portland, Oregon

A Christmas Message from Mohamed Osman Mohamud to Infidels in Portland, Oregon


By John W. Lillpop

As an ambassador for the “Religion of Peace,” 19-year old Mohamed Osman Mohamud had a distinctively non-peaceful Christmas message for infidels celebrating the start of the Christmas season in Portland, Oregon.

As reported in a Department of Justice official release, in part:


PORTLAND, Ore. – Mohamed Osman Mohamud, 19, a naturalized U.S. citizen from Somalia and resident of Corvallis, Ore., has been arrested on charges of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction (explosives) in connection with a plot to detonate a vehicle bomb at an annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony earlier this evening in Portland, Ore., the Justice Department announced.

According to a criminal complaint signed in the District of Oregon, Mohamud was arrested by the FBI and Portland Police Bureau at approximately 5:40 p.m. (PST) Nov. 26, 2010 after he attempted to detonate what he believed to be an explosives-laden van that was parked near the tree lighting ceremony in Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square.

The arrest was the culmination of a long-term undercover operation, during which Mohamud had been monitored closely for months as his alleged bomb plot developed. The device was in fact inert; and the public was never in danger from the device.

Mohamud is expected to make his initial appearance in federal court in Portland on Monday. He faces a maximum statutory sentence of life in prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted of the charge of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction.

Dwight C. Holton, U.S. Attorney for the District of Oregon, said, “This defendant’s chilling determination is a stark reminder that there are people -- even here in Oregon -- who are determined to kill Americans. The good work of law enforcement protected Oregonians in this case -- and we have no reason to believe there is any continuing threat arising from this case.”

“The complaint alleges that Mohamud attempted to detonate what he believed to be a vehicle bomb at a crowded holiday event in downtown Portland, but a coordinated undercover law enforcement action was able to thwart his efforts and ensure no one was harmed,” said David Kris, Assistant Attorney General for National Security. “While the public was never in danger from the device, this case serves as yet another reminder of the need for continued vigilance both at home and abroad.”


Thus is the story of yet another attempted terrorist attack on innocent Americans by a crazed Muslim.

Perhaps Mohamud did not receive President Obama’s message that America is not, and never will be, at war with Islam?

Or more likely, President Obama has refused to accept the crystal clear message from Islam which is: Death to the Infidels until Islam rules the world.


Time to wake-up, Mr. President!

Remembering Bob Clark, Director of "A Christmas Story"



















By John W. Lillpop


Yet another Christmas has been made more joyful by being able to watch Bob Clark's delightful film, "A Christmas Story."

In many American homes, Clark's 1983 award-winning film has joined "A Christmas Carol," "It's a Wonderful Life," and "Miracle on 34th Street" as mandatory Yuletide fare.

Christmas simply would not be the "most wonderful time of the year" without watching all four of these great movies at least once each December.

Unfortunately for all who love Christmas, Bob Clark has not been around to celebrate Christmas in recent years. That is so because the prolific filmmaker, whose career spanned four decades, was killed in an automobile crash caused by a drunken driver in California in 2007.

Hector Velazquez-Nava, an illegal alien from Mexico, had a blood alcohol level three times the legal limit when he claimed the lives of both Clark and his 22-year-old son, Ariel Hanrath-Clark.

On October 16, 2007, Hector Velazquez-Nava was sentenced to six years in prison after pleading no contest to two counts of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated.

According to some estimates, about 13 Americans are slaughtered every day, on average, by drunken illegal aliens like Hector Velazquez-Nava.

Despite the carnage caused by illegal aliens, the mainstream media refuses to acknowledge and report the extent of the problem. Political correctness seems more vital than objective reporting, at least in some leftist news rooms.

In addition to media malfeasance in reporting the facts, America's political leaders, including our president, constantly argue that those coming here illegally from Mexico should be welcomed en masse because they hold values common to the American people.

One wonders if our so-called leaders are even aware of the horrors involving illegal aliens, too much alcohol, and the slaughter of innocent Americans?

Or do they simply not care?

The simple truth is that illegal aliens are not all good hearted, hard working folks who just come here to work. Many are violent criminals who should be rounded up and booted out of America before they commit more crime.

Moreover, illegal aliens do not share American values.

By definition, all illegal aliens are criminals, but most Americans are not.

Another example: Driving while drunk is considered "cool" and "macho" in Mexican culture, but is seen as stupid and recklessly criminal in America.

The solution? Our borders should be militarized to keep invaders out, and those already here should be rounded up and forcibly removed as soon as possible.

Monterrey, Mexico: A World-Class, Upscale City? Don’t Be Silly!

By John W. Lillpop

According to those who deny that Mexico is a third-world slum and of great danger to America, the city of Monterrey is cited as an example of a modern, sophisticated city, hardly third-world in nature.

That wishful thinking has evaporated as a result of recent torment.

As reported at yahoo.com:


MONTERREY, Mexico – A 21-year-old university student lies dead from a gunshot to the head. Nearby, paramedics wrap the head of another woman in a blood-soaked shirt while her husband holds their cowering children.

They were shopping in a popular downtown promenade when gunmen chasing a security guard opened fire into the crowd. This wasn't supposed to happen in Monterrey, Mexico's modern northern city with gleaming glass towers that rise against the Sierra Madre, where students flock to world-class universities, including the country's equivalent of MIT.

But drug violence has painted Monterrey with the look and feel of the gritty border 100 miles (160 kilometers) to the north as two former allies, the Gulf and Zetas gangs, fight for control of Mexico's third-largest — and wealthiest — city.

The deterioration happened nearly overnight, laying bare issues that plague the entire country: a lack of credible policing and the Mexican habit of looking the other way at the drug trade as long as it was orderly and peaceful.

The Mexican government announced Wednesday it is ordering a significant boost in military troops and federal police in the northeastern border state of Tamaulipas and neighboring Nuevo Leon, home to Monterrey.

As in much of Mexico, there was no viable law enforcement to counter the onslaught. The Zetas control the local police. Other police forces aligned with the Gulf cartel in the fight against them.

About half of the 750 police officers in Monterrey have been fired on suspicion of links to organized crime.

“More than 500 people have died in drug violence in the first 10 months of the year, compared to 56 slayings for all of 2009, according to tallies kept by the city's El Norte newspaper.”


Monterrey: Very Mexican in both geography and status as a third-world junk pile.

Opting Out of the Great Opt-Out!












By John W. Lillpop

So, how was YOUR holiday travel experience this Thanksgiving?

Were you forced to wait for hours in desperately long lines just to be sexually assaulted by some retarded TSA agent who celebrated Thanksgiving by fondling and groping your private parts?

Or was was it the magic of that high-technology body scanner that exposed and preserved for posterity images of your beautiful body, images that, with your luck, may go viral on the Internet at any time?

Was it the image of your endowments that drove that TSA weasel to masturbation in order to relieve the tension brought on by the magnificence of your sexual plumbing?

Actually, despite the end-of-life-as-we-know-it warnings about the Great Airport Armageddon of 2010, the busiest travel day of the year came and went with very little, or none, of the problems that had been planned or forecast.

Which makes one wonder: Whatever happened to the great Opt-Out that was supposed to ruin Thanksgiving for millions of people foolish enough to leave their fates in the hands—quite literally—of molesters working for Janet Napolitano?

Did the great Opt-Out flop so dramatically because airports were clogged with travelers like ding-bat attorney Gloria Allred who claimed that she enjoyed pat-downs because it had been such a long time since her “private parts” had been touched?

Which brings forth another burning question: Does Obama need a “Groping and Fondling Czar” to handle the Gloria Allreds of the world?

In the final analysis, did the traveling public simply Opt-out of the Opt Out in order to get the hell to grandma’s place on time for that great Turkey feast?

Blessings that Conservatives Can Give Thanks For






















By John W. Lillpop


Although America remains under siege and is still partially occupied by liberal fascists, in the larger picture conservatives have much to be thankful for this holiday.

Among the blessings:

*Because of Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama, the U.S. House is back in the hands of patriots and real Americans come January;

*Likewise, the Obama effect has given the GOP six more seats in the Senate and jettisoned Obama's filibuster proof majority out the door;

*Come Janaury, there will be no Kennedy in either chamber of the U.S. Congress;

*Barack Obama’s approval numbers are, and have been, headed south, indicative of America’s spiritual awakening and intellectual recovery. Gone is the goofy talk about the Obama Messianic halo;

*The Republican tsunami engulfed state houses all across the nation, improving prospects for a GOP president and further gains in Congress in 2012;

*Global warming has been certified as yet another monstrous liberal fraud;

*TSA agents have but two hands and 10 digits;

*Glenn Beck nailed George Soros;

*Tea parties are here to stay;

*Nancy Pelosi will remain the face and voice of the Democrat Party in the U.S. House;

*Charlie Rangel and Maxine Waters are Nancy Pelosi Democrats

*For the first time in decades, Arlene Specter has no earthly reason for being in Washington, D.C.;

*Americans finally realize that CHANGE does not automatically mean better;

*Janet Napolitano has no twin and is incapable of reproducing.

There you go: Just by opening one's mind to the presence of positive Karma, there is plenty to be thankful for.


HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Surge Needed at Mexican Border!










John W. Lillpop

Those who favor amnesty for the 12-38 million illegal aliens currently in the United States have fashioned a new plea for sympathy that goes something like this:

Let's make illegal aliens LEGAL, so they will no longer have to live in the "shadows."

Political "leaders" like Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reidare actually trying to sell amnesty with this illogical message.

As is the case with ALL arguments in favor of illegal aliens, the "bring them out of the shadows" nonsense is nothing but recycled snake oil.

To begin with, illegal aliens are NOT forced to live in shadows. Each and every last one of these free loading criminals is free to obey U.S. law by getting the hell out of America and returning to Mexico.

Now!

And take your freaking shadows with you!

Secondly: In recent years, millions of illegal aliens marched boldly through the streets of Chicago, Los Angeles, Dallas and other American cities to DEMAND amnesty.

Many stupidly waved Mexican flags and carried Spanish banners to publicize their deamnds.

Even to the most unsophisticated observer, it was obvious that these renegade monsters were not inhibited and were certainly not timidly hiding in shadows.

The real solution to dealing with these miscreants:

Secure the borders militarily, deport all illegal aliens currently here, and enforce existing immigration laws.

In other words, let's have a "surge" at the border and in the barrios to rid America of this third world parasite!

Has Pope Benedict Lost His Bloody Mind?











By John W. Lillpop

No doubt Pope Benedict meant well when he offered a possible spiritual solution for preventing the spread of AIDS.

However, by suggesting that the use of condoms by male prostitutes “could be a first step in assuming moral responsibility for stemming the spread of the virus that causes AIDS,” the Pope has befuddled the world—Catholics and non-Catholics alike—as confusion over his remarks runs rampant.

Who would have expected the Pope, of all people, to use the term “moral responsibility” in the same sentence as male prostitute? Is there a more offensive oxymoron?

Other probing questions for His Holiness include the following:

( )Is the pontiff endorsing the behavior of male prostitutes provided condoms are used?

( )Just what makes the Pope knowledgeable about male prostitutes? What makes him expert?

( )What about female prostitutes?

( )Given the fact that AIDS is also contracted as a result of monogamous relations between heterosexuals, why is condom use prohibited in such situations?, and

( )What about the use of condoms by non-prostitute males for birth control and prevention of SDS?

To the later, the Vatican immediately responded, “Definitely not”!

In fact, officials strongly emphasized that the church's position on contraception has not changed one whit.

Which brings us back to the original question: Has the Pope lost his bloody mind??

Sexual Bedlam at Airports, Mystery Missile off California: Anyone Heard from BHO?

By John W. Lillpop



As Janet Napolitano and her minions at TSA work to transform travel- by- air into an XXXX-rated experience, the launching of a “mystery” missile off the coast of California continues to make news, owing to the fact that the event is, to date, unexplained.

Not surprisingly, while genital groping, fondling, naked body scanners, and the like run rampant at airports all across America , and missiles originating with unknown sources rock the horizon of California, America’s Ditherer-in-chief has yet to utter a peep with regard to either matter.

Of course, it is quite possible that those issues simply do not rise to the level of importance needed to justify presidential attention.

After all, President Obama has his plate full what with the mad rush to disembowel the will of the American people before all those racist, Constitution-obsessed, tea-slurping radicals take over in January!

So much of America left to destroy, so little time to do so, say Obama and his battered gaggle of soon-to-be unemployed Marxists.

Such as the so-called DREAM ACT, that UN-American proposal based solely on racial profiling, that would stupidly REWARD the children of invading criminals.

Mind you, this is the liberal alternative to mass deportations, which should be undertaken in the name of preserving American culture and language as well as the rule of law.

Obama’s mind is also cluttered with fairy tale visions of peace and tranquility once the START treaty is ratified by the Senate.

Never mind that experts such as Senator Kyl(R-Arizona) believe that the proposed treaty deserves more review and debate in order to protect the interests of the American people. In Obama’s “non-partisan” mind, those who call for intelligent debate are “playing politics,” with national security.

Of course, BHO and the left would NEVER use a critical issue like START as a poker chip in the game of power politics.

Better to surrender NOW, while we have the Russians right where they want us, right, Mr. President?

Rounding out the Obama Lame Duck agenda is the full throttle war against the successful and accomplished, those greedy entrepreneurial heathen with the audacity to earn more than $250,000 in one year.

According to Obama, excessive success and profit are inherently UN-American, making it within the province of government (when run by Democrats) to level the playing field.

Level the playing field is liberal-speak for stealing from the rich and sending said treasury to clueless, government bureaucrats for distribution to the failed, incompetent, and slothful.

In summary, President Obama is 1) working 24/7 to circumvent the rule of law by rewarding those who violate our borders and immigration laws, 2)committed to surrendering to Russia while Congress is still in the hands of Marxists, and 3)making American exceptionalism punishable by higher and higher taxes.

Given Obama’s warped, anti-American agenda, how much of a surprise it is that he has neither the time nor energy to worry about the sexual revolution taking place at U.S. airports at the hands of TSA agents, or the firing of mystery missiles off the coast of California?

Why Is Charles Rangel Not Under Arrest for Tax Evasion?

By John W. Lillpop

Charles Rangel has spent 40 of his 80 years in Washington, D.C. as an elected representative in the U.S. House. Ordinarily such long-term service would earn the office holder great kudos for giving so much to his nation.

However, this is Charles Rangel we are talking about. Poster child for Corruption, with a capital C. One of Nancy Pelosi’s trusted mentors on removing corrupt white Republicans from the People’s House, and turning it over to unsavory people of color, always Democrats as it turns out.

After a grinding ordeal played out over 2.5 years and millions of dollars in legal fees, Charles Rangel was found guilty of 11 ethics violations and was sentenced to censure by the House.

Which is all well and good, but why is this corrupt bastard still allowed to travel the halls of Congress while begging for a “drop of mercy” after evading taxes for 17 years?

Why has Charles Rangel not been arrested by the IRS for tax evasion?

After all, powerless citizens like yours truly will soon be subject to harassment by the IRS and a $5,000 fine for failing to buy ObamaCare insurance!

You and me, sisters and brothers, facing the full force and rage of the U.S. government for refusing to follow an unconstitutional mandate from our Marxist president!

Yet, the fellow who just seven months ago was in charge of writing the tax laws failed to pay his taxes for years is still a free man?

Where in the hell is the justice in that?

Most distressing is the fact that this bloated tax cheat wails like a stuck pig when called to account for his corrupt behavior by peers. He even demands that he be called “not corrupt.”

Elitist fools like Charles Rangel are exactly what the election results of November 2were all about.

At 80 years of age, some may believe that Rangel deserves a “break,” a kinder, gentler hand if you will.

I say, enough is enough! A mild scolding is no way to deal with a CORRUPT weasel who has abused the public trust in order to enrich himself.

The solution: Arrest Charles Rangel for tax evasion, charge him with a felony or 13, and punish his fat bum to the full extent of the law.

See to it that Rangel leaves prison only on a death stretcher as his corrupt, expired remains are removed.

After all, being 80 is no excuse for being a serial tax evader!

Whither Joe Biden’s “Patriotism” When It Comes to HIS Money?

By John W. Lillpop


During the 2008 presidential campaign, Vice-presidential candidate Joe Biden startled politicians by declaring that paying higher taxes was somehow an act of patriotism.

"We want to take money and put it back in the pocket of middle-class people," Biden said in a television interview aired in August of 2008. Biden expanded on that notion by saying, "It's time to be patriotic ... time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut."

However, there is apparently a limit to Biden’s patriotic philanthropy, particularly when it involves HIS money.

As reported by the Washington Times, in part:

“Federal election regulators on Thursday ruled that President Obama's campaign can transfer money to Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.'s short-lived 2008 presidential campaign, which doesn't have enough in the bank to pay off more than $200,000 in election fines.”

What’s up with that, Mr. Veep?

Why not set an example by writing a personal check to the U.S. Treasury to atone for YOUR election sins?

Now THAT would be the patriotic thing to do, sir!

Once Again, Barack Obama Cries "Wolf"

By John W. Lillpop


In 2009, President-elect Barack Obama urged the United States Congress to act with haste to pass a one-trillion dollar stimulus bill that Obama claimed was essential to the future prosperity of the American people and generations to follow.

As reported, in part, at Reference 1, in January of 2009:


In his weekly radio address to the nation, Obama will call today for Republicans and Democrats to work together "with the urgency this moment demands" to pass a stimulus bill that reinvests in the nation and puts people back to work.

"Economists from across the political spectrum agree that if we don't act swiftly and boldly, we could see a much deeper economic downturn that could lead to double digit unemployment and the American Dream slipping further and further out of reach," Obama says in his taped remarks.

The nation, he adds, needs a plan that "not only creates jobs in the short term but spurs economic growth and competitiveness in the long term. And this plan must be designed in a new way - we can't just fall into the old Washington habit of throwing money at the problem."


Despite Republican demands for calm and reasoned debate, Democrats did, in fact, pass the trillion-dollar bill which President Obama signed into law on February 17, 2009.

Nearly two years later, America is still in the throes of a deep recession. Unemployment hovers close to the double-digit mark that Obama promised his stimulus baby would avoid.

And the national deficit has exploded out of control.

Now, President Obama is once again using the rhetoric of fear and intimidation in pushing for ratification of the SALT Treaty by the lame-duck Congress.

As reported at Reference 2, in part,

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama sternly proclaimed ratification of the U.S.-Russia nuclear arms treaty "a national security imperative" Thursday, saying the Senate must act before Congress goes home for the year.

"Every month that goes by without a treaty means that we are not able to verify what's going on on the ground in Russia," Obama said. "And if we delay indefinitely, American leadership on nonproliferation and America's national security will be weakened."


Given that he was so wrong about the stimulus, why should informed members of Congress heed Obama's “Wolf” cry concerning this vital national security issue?

Barack Obama’s “Bad- Hair” Month

By John W. Lillpop

If one could take a sneak peek into President Obama’s personal diary, the month of November 2010 might have a cryptic entry along these lines:

Dear Diary: November sucks!

BHO

And, indeed, for President Obama November has been nothing but awful news compounded by awful news, made all the worse by an administration that refuses to admit the truth: The President’s policies suck!

November’s trouncing began on Tuesday, November 2, when America went to the polls and registered an unequivocal NO! with regard to Obama’s CHANGE and to most Democrats who supported same.

Some seats in the U.S. House are still undecided, but no matter, because voters acted to clean the House, something that a certain Shrieker- woman was unable to accomplish after four long years. As a consequence, more than 60 House Democrats will be drawing unemployment checks in January, thanks to Nancy Pelosi.

Voter repudiation of Obama Marxism was also evident in the U.S. Senate where the GOP picked up six seats, effectively ending Obama’s ability to rule by fiat.

After conceding that he suffered a “Shellacking,” in the elections, the President escaped on a 10-day junket through Asia where he hoped to bag a free-trade agreement with South Korea and persuade G-20 attendees to follow his lead on dealing with China.

However, instead of asserting his regal power on the global stage, Barack Obama was rebuffed time and again, thereby confirming the verdict delivered by America voters on 2 November, which was: President Obama’s judgment is very much suspect and must be unrelentingly challenged when necessary!

Back “home” after the Asian fiasco, the president sought to enhance his self-esteem and public image by winning confirmation of the START Treaty with Russia in the U.S. Senate.

Once again, President Obama was smacked into place, this time by Senator John Kyle, the well-respected Republican from Arizona who has said that ratification should not be rushed during the current lame duck session.

President Obama is still fighting this battle, but it will take 67 votes in the Senate to confirm SALT.

While the SALT Treaty is being sorted out, Obama’s hair-brained scheme to try terrorists in civilian courts suffered a major blow when jurors convicted Ahmed Ghailani of conspiracy to blow up government buildings in the al-Qaida attacks on two U.S. embassies in 1998, but acquitted him on more than 280 other charges.

That legal malfeasance almost surely means an end to Obama’s goofy pipe-dream of closing GITMO.

Another day, another bitter defeat for the naïve and inexperienced community organizer from Illinois.

Were he a major-league baseball player rather than U.S. President, Barack Obama would be headed for a long-term stint in some dreary Class D farm club in the low minors to work on his mechanics-- and to acquire “additional seasoning.”

Unfortunately for America, this is not baseball and the nation must wait until November 2012 to give Barack Obama his well earned, and richly -deserved, “unconditional release.”

God speed November 6, 2012 while blessing the American people with the courage, strength and patience to endure until that date, when the Obama Presidency can be terminated!

An Appropriate “Sentence” for Charles Rangel

By John W. Lillpop


The ongoing saga of Charles Rangel versus the American people, the IRS, the U.S. House, basic human decency, and even God is set to culminate on Thursday as the House Ethics Committee will hold a hearing to consider an appropriate sentence for the rotund tax cheat and convicted violator of House ethics rules on 11 occasions.

Once again, if he chooses to, Rangel with have the opportunity to stand before the Committee with C-Span cameras rolling and protest the savage unfairness of being forced to comply with the tax code and other rules which pertain to representatives in the Pelosi “corruption free” House.

Thus, another several hours of perfectly good C-Span prime time will be wasted on a barrage of ranting and raving from a fringe lunatic who should have been removed from Congress years ago, and who is the post child for corruption and bad government.

Why waste hours of time on a silly hearing for a man whose time long ago passed?

Ethics committee chairman, Democratic Rep. Zoe Lofgren of California should expedite the process and pass sentence with five simple words:

Get the hell out, Charlie!

Janet Napolitano: Caring for CAIR at U.S. Airports?

















By John W. Lillpop


No one can deny that Janet Napolitano faces an extraordinary challenge at American airports.

To begin with, she must implement measures that give the impression that DHS is working diligently to prevent planes from being blown up.

Imagine the public meltdown that would ensue should a jumbo-jet packed with 300 or 400 Americans headed to grandma’s for Turkey Day go up in flames because some careless TSA agent failed to check a suspicious-looking passenger?

On the other hand, Napolitano must respect the privacy and decency concerns of travelers not accustomed to genital groping, fondling, naked body scans, and the presence of strange hands in heretofore forbidden places.

Very challenging, indeed.

Nonetheless, given the ticking time bomb (pun unintended) at U.S. airports, why in the world would Napolitano even consider an “adjustment” that would exempt Muslim women from pat downs?

Lest we forget, terrorism is almost the exclusive domain of Muslims.

Which is not to say that all Muslims are terrorists, but which is to say that nearly all terrorists are Muslim.

Why would the U.S. government move to exempt the group most responsible for terrorism around the globe while making life miserable for children and nuns?


Clearly, Napolitano is responding to political pressure from CAIR.

That being the case, she lacks the judgment and perspective needed to assure that the interests and needs of America are reflected at DHS.

Janet Napolitano is out of control.

What are you going to do about it, President Obama?

More Onerous: Water Boarding or Airport Screening?

Satire by John W. Lillpop

As odd as it may sound, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano seems to have concocted an offense against humanity which is even more despicable and humiliating than the evil practice of water boarding, a favorite of W. and Dick Cheney back in the days when the government was actually more concerned with preventing another 9/11 than coddling Islamofascist freaks with Amanda rights, civilian trials, and other Obama idiocy.

Indeed, what with genital groping, fondling, naked body scans, and intrusion of TSA hands into heretofore forbidden places, Napolitano has managed to make water boarding a relatively respectable procedure for defending the homeland.

In a recent poll (still to be published), 8 out of 10 Americans stated that they would be prefer to be water boarded rather than tortured by TSA perverts who not only look down one’s pants, but whom are now authorized to conduct a “quick feel” as one of one of the great employment perks that Napolitano offers otherwise lowly screening agents.

Ever the most clever deficit-finding cabinet member of the Obama administration, Nappy has even found a way to pay for all of those expense, high-technology body scanners. She saves the more exciting crotch x-rays and peddles same to a sex-starved public with an insatiable appetite for airport porn!

And who said Janet Napolitano is not creative?

Nancy Pelosi Reacts to Charles Rangel Veridct

















Satire by John W. Lillpop



Pity poor, old soon-to-be deposed Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

While campaigning for take over of the U.S. House by Democrats in 2006, she had such high hopes for elevating the quality of politicians serving in The People’s House.

If only the American people would install a Democrat majority, she argued, corruption, greed, fraud, lying, and mean-spirited neglect would be replaced by Angels of Liberalism, souls so spiritually pure that wrong would never again be countenanced in the House.

She would, she promised, drain the swamp and clean out the riff raff and bottom dwellers!

She would smoke out, and destroy, House members affiliated with the Culture of Corruption, thereby saving America from all manner of debauchery!

She would restore public confidence in the honesty and integrity of elected officials by eradicating the unworthy from the ranks of the U.S. House!

Then the unthinkable actually happened: The people of America ceded the U.S. House to Marxists and morons, and as a result, Nancy Pelosi proved, beyond a doubt, the existence of the Peter Principle by absconding with the Speaker’s gavel which, by default, meant she was the new Speaker.

Thus began the degradation of the esteemed U.S. House to its current sorry state as the Pelosi House of Ill Repute.

Two years ago, Charles Rangel started making negative news as allegations of tax impropriety began to surface.

These revelations were particularly embarrassing to the “Swamp Lady,” as Nancy Pelosi was known in comedy clubs and other venues where honest people congregate to talk politics.

The joke was that Pelosi’s swamp cleaner was programmed to spit out only members with an R next to their names, thereby leaving blobs of corruption like Rangel unscathed.

Still, Pelosi defended her chubby tax cheat and refused for the longest time to challenge Rangel to abandon his spot as the Chairman of the Committee on Ways and Means.

Month after month, Pelosi continued to stand strong in her stubborn defense of Charles Rangel, waiting, she said. for more definitive proof and facts.

Well, Madam Speaker, how's this breaking news item for more definitive proof?

As reported, in part, at thehill.com:


A House ethics panel has convicted Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.) on 11 of 13 counts of violating House ethics rules.

Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), the chairwoman of the adjudicatory subcommittee and the full House ethics committee, announced the decision late Tuesday morning following an abbreviated public trial of the 20-term lawmaker and nearly six hours of deliberations.

"We have tried to act with fairness, led only by the facts and the law," Lofgren said. "We believe we have accomplished that mission."

Reached at Pelosi Headquarters in an isolated cage at the San Francisco Zoo, Pelosi reacted, without batting an eye, with this terse inquiry: "Charlie? Charlie Who?"

San Francisco to Ban, “Unkindest Cut of All”?


















By John W. Lillpop

How blessed they are, the people of San Francisco!

With problems like crime, drugs, budget shortfalls, crumbling infrastructure, and failing schools apparently solved here, the good people of this liberal nut house can focus on really important issues of grave concern to all of mankind.

In the mind of San Francisco activist Lloyd Schofield, preventing the practice of circumcision is just such a cause.

Which is why Schofield is proposing a ballot measure that would ban circumcision in the City, according to the San Francisco Examiner.

If passed by voters next year, Schofield’s measure would change San Francisco's police code “to make it a misdemeanor to circumcise, excise, cut or mutilate the foreskin, testicle or penis of another person who has not attained the age of 18.”

Asked to comment on the proposed change, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi quipped, “Well, I don’t really know, although you could say its no skin off my nose.”

And so it is, as The City drifts further and further into the abyss of liberal insanity!

Rain, Sleet, & Snow Cannot Stop U.S. Mail: What About Big Labor?

By John W. Lillpop

Imagine an enterprise with a business plan aimed at containing losses, rather than building profits. That could apply to any business beholden to greedy labor unions, including the U.S. postal office.

As reported at CNN.com:

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- The U.S. Postal Service more than doubled its losses in fiscal year 2010, despite cutting billions of dollars in expenses and trimming its staff.

The Postal Service said its net loss totaled $8.5 billion in the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30. That compares to a loss of $3.8 billion the prior year
Chief Financial Officer Joe Corbett said the losses were worsening despite cuts that generated cost savings of $9 billion over the past two years. Those savings came primarily from the elimination of 105,000 full-time positions -- "more than any other organization, anywhere," Corbett said.

As more communications go electronic, mail volume keeps dropping. The Postal Service delivered 170.6 billion pieces in its 2010 fiscal year, compared to 176.7 billion pieces the prior year. That decline cost the service around $1 billion in lost revenue.

"We will continue our relentless efforts to innovate and improve efficiency," Corbett said. "However, the need for changes to legislation, regulations and labor contracts has never been more obvious."

Having destroyed the U.S. automobile industry, Big Labor is once again working against the best interests of the working members it is supposed to serve.

Perhaps Labor Unions should be held accountable under anti-trust law?

Sexual Mayhem at Airports: Whither Presidential Leadership?

By John W. Lillpop

Under the watchful eye of DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano, air travel through airports has turned into a harrowing experience for thousands of travelers and airline employees.

That would be the innocent souls who simply wish to get from Point A to Point B, and whom are shocked to learn that, in order to do so, one must be exposed to sexual assault and abuse at the hands of psychopaths working for TSA.

Charges of genital groping and fondling are being leveled by prudent travelers trying to get an early start on that Thanksgiving trip to grandma’s, most of whom said travelers are not particularly in the mood for sexual foreplay.

As reported at CNN.Com, in part:

A growing pilot and passenger revolt over full-body scans and what many consider intrusive pat-downs couldn't have come at a worse time for the nation's air travel system.

Thanksgiving, the busiest travel time of the year, is less than two weeks away.

Grassroots groups are urging travelers to either not fly or to protest by opting out of the full-body scanners and undergo time-consuming pat-downs instead.

Such concerns prompted a meeting Friday of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano with leaders of travel industry groups.

Napolitano met with the U.S.Travel Association and 20 travel companies "to underscore the Department's continued commitment to partnering with the nation's travel and tourism industry to facilitate the flow of trade and travel while maintaining high security standards to protect the American people," the department said in a statement.

Industry leaders are worried about the grassroots backlash to Transportation Security Administration security procedures. Some pilots, passengers and flight attendants have chosen to opt out of the revealing scans.

While the meeting with Secretary Napolitano was informative, it was not entirely reassuring," the U.S. Travel Association said in a statement
.

There's a shocker: "Meeting with Napolitano was was not entirely reassuring.”

What else should one expect from a cabinet member who holds her high post in deference to Affirmative Action quotas, rather than proven ability?

The even larger question to ponder: Where is the leadership from President Obama during a crisis with such huge implications for a vital segment of the economy and homeland security?

Dithering in Japan?

A Poignant Image of Democrats in the 111Th Congress: Babies Without Diapers!











Satire By Lillpop

In just a few short weeks, the term of the 111Th Congress will officially expire, proving that, although setting a definite time table for quitting a war is incredibly dumb, removing moon bats from office on a date certain can actually help save a struggling nation.

In the case of the 111Th, the unfortunate fact is that the official expiration lags significantly behind the “end of usefulness” date which, according to reliable sources, was on or about 1 January, 2009.

In the intervening 23 months, Nancy Pelosi and her court yard of thugs, hoodlums, tax evaders, and loan mortgage sharks have all but destroyed the most prosperous economy in human history, while making a mockery of law and order from coast-to-coast, or more specifically, from Rangel to Waters.

The legacy from the Pelosi House includes health care reform that makes nearly everyone sick, a stimulus bill that stimulates only the exploding federal deficit, and run away unemployment that will finally snare Democrat politicians come January.

So, what would be a poignant image that would capture the essence of the 111th Congress?

How about “Babies Without Diapers” ?

Introducing Sylvia Thompson: Conservative Writer Worth Reading!

By John W. Lillpop

Sylvia Thompson, a member of the Silicon Valley Conservative Forum in San Jose, has penned the outstanding column which follows, titled the Upside of the Obama Travesty.

Ms. Thompson is an excellent writer with a unique American message!

Her column is a "Must Read" for those trying to understand the Barack Obama presidency.




The Upside of the Obama Travesty


I am a black woman whose roots run deep in America—over a century back to someone brought here either from Africa or somewhere far from these shores. I was born into and reared in the Jim Crow South. My total existence until I reached undergraduate college consisted of black everything: schools, hospitals, doctors, dentists, the movie theatre, social functions, friends, and of course relatives. And none of this experience draws me even remotely close to the person of Barack Obama. Nor does it make me relate to black liberals and elitists anymore than it draws me to Caucasian liberals and elitists.

I do not see this man’s entrance upon the scene as praise-worthy, although he will be recorded in history as a “first.” Sadly, for all blacks who descended from slaves in America, he will be the historical face of “the first” black President—a man whose father was not American and who had a Marxist past and Muslim, Christian-hating faith; a mother whose leanings were not toward America’s founding principles; and many influential mentors, associates, and friends, none of whom were or are pro-America.

In addition, Barack Obama is avidly pro-abortion, insanely insistent upon forcing the homosexual agenda upon an unreceptive American populace; disdainful of the military and hell bent upon instituting open sodomy among the ranks with all the inherent horrors that move will entail; and he is arrogantly incompetent in the position of power that he now holds.

My response to Barack Obama is to ignore his existence to the degree that I can. What I knew of him and his past as he embarked upon his campaign compelled me to avoid any of his “mesmerizing” speeches. I tuned out the entire transfer of government (and that’s no mean feat). I did not watch any part of his inauguration ceremony or the speeches delivered after his election. I mute or change the channel whenever he appears on my television, and turn off my radio if I hear his voice. That I must go through these contortions to keep this man’s presence out of my home, makes me even more disdainful of his intrusion upon this nation.

Now, to the premise of this article: What is the upside of the Obama travesty? It is this. American white folks should never again have to vote for a President because he is black and they are guilt-ridden. Whites can stop obsessing about a past over which none of them had any control. Black-white race issues in this country can now take a back seat to reason when it comes to the choice of an American President.

Unfortunately, however, with every upside there is a corresponding downside. And that is, if ever again a person who is a shade or two darker than café-au-lait decides to run for President, that person will not be trusted. The attitude will be “been there, done that and don’t want to do it again.” That is indeed a travesty.

Obama and Pelosi Gulp “Achievement” Kool-Aid to Kill the Pain!

By John W. Lillpop

First it was Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the U.S. House for another dreadful five weeks or so, who decided to throw a lavish party to “celebrate” the many achievements of Democrats in the 111Th Congress.

Achievements hailed as “progressive victories” by that wild party animal from San Francisco include a Marxist health care bill in great disfavor with a majority of Americans, relentless unemployment, and a crippling increase in the national deficit.

So, what’s to celebrate, Nance, except for the fact that 60-plus Congressional Democrats from your House head to the unemployment line in January and the Speaker’s gavel will be pried from your corrupt, Marxist hands and handed over to a responsible person with solid American credentials?

While most Americans are still rolling on the floor with laughter at Pelosi’s “Come Celebrate My Demise” bash, President Obama decided to join the frivolity with his own declaration of victory, when no such thing exists, domestically or internationally, the later especially on the heels of his $200 million dollar a day fiasco-boondoggle to Asia.

As reported, in part, at Yahoo.com:

YOKOHAMA, Japan – President Barack Obama claimed a stronger hand on the world stage Friday despite electoral defeats at home, failure to get a free-trade agreement with South Korea and lackluster international support for his get-tough policy with China on trade and currency disputes.

The president flew to Japan for the APEC summit without the coveted trade pact with Korea or a united front with other countries against China's currency policy. He also endured a gusher of criticism from other countries about a decision by the U.S. central bank to pump $600 billion into the U.S. economy, something China, Germany and others believe could weaken the dollar and lead to inflation.

Even so, the president contended that his standing with world leaders is not diminished.”


As with Nancy Pelosi, delusions of grandeur seem to have overtaken BHO’s thought processes, thereby turning bitter defeat into coveted victory.

The burning question from all of this: Who is spiking the “achievement” Kool-Aid used by moon bats to kill the pain from November 2?

Pity for Nancy Pelosi?





















By John W. Lillpop



Under most circumstance, the sight of a 70-year-old grandmother sitting alone on a dark, cold night after being mercilessly abandoned like a worn-out old shoe by ungrateful underlings would bring forth spontaneous waves of public compassion, sympathy and downright pity.

In the case of soon-to-be deposed Speaker of the U.S. House, Nancy Pelosi, however, chortling is the involuntary impulse that comes to the fore.

After all, this is the woman who once campaigned on the theme that, “Perhaps it will take a woman to clean the house,” and who, when put in charge of the House, proceeded to clutter the swamp with corruption and vice on a scale never before seen.

Almost single-handedly, Speaker Pelosi managed to turn ObamaCare into a synonym for bribery, corruption, political gerrymandering, fascism, and sneaky, behind-the- scenes deal making that blatantly ignored the will of the American people.

Pelosi’s reckless disregard for the will of the people cost sixty -plus Democrats their jobs and careers on November 2, as the will of the people was finally listened to, albeit reluctantly, and with no show of grace from Speaker Nancy, Madam of the Pelosi House of ill-repute.

In the aftermath of the great House Cleaning of 2010, executed by the only people that really count, the voters, Speaker Pelosi took her insanity to the next level by throwing a party to celebrate the great “achievements” of the 111th Congress.

Pelosi’s obvious attempt to spark support for her ill-advised run for minority leadership of the House was sabotaged when she attempted to rouse her troops by saying, "We have no intention of allowing our great achievements to be rolled back.”

To the 60 or so deposed Democrats who will not be around in Janaury to join the fight against the dreaded “roll back,” Pelosi’s promise was yet another frightening reminder of the partisan delusion that has eroded the mind and soul of this pathetic lefty.

Pity for Nancy Pelosi?

No, Hell no! Bring on the chortling!

Greater Threat to American Liberty: Al-Quaeda or TSA?


By John W. Lillpop


Just when it seemed as though the Obama administration could not possibly be more hostile to American business, it now appears as though BHO and his cohorts have decided to bankrupt the airline industry.

This latest anti-business campaign, waged in the name of Homeland Security, involves fondling of genitals, naked body scans, and even turbine frisking, for heavens sake.

Turbine frisking? Now THAT is kinky!

As reported at Reference 1, in part:

PHOENIX - A flight attendants union with 2,000 members is upset over what it calls "invasive pat-downs" recently implemented by the TSA.

"We're getting calls daily about peoples' experiences, our members are concerned," said Deborah Volpe, Vice President of the Association of Flight Attendants Local 66.
Volpe confirmed that the union is offering advice to its flight attendants, who mostly work for Tempe-based USAirways, involving the security moves.

According to a union email obtained by ABC15, it tells flight attendants if they opt out of using the body scanner through security and are required to undergo a pat-down to ask the pat-down be conducted in a private area with a witness.

"We don't want them in uniform going through this enhanced screening where their private areas are being touched in public," said Volpe. "They actually make contact with the genital area."

Some passengers have told ABC15 they've already encountered flight delays due to crew members having problems with TSA employees.

"It (delay) was over three hours when they finally found a crew member to take her place," said Les Johnson who says his Charlotte bound flight was delayed. "She (flight attendant) felt that she was groped and supposedly filed a claim."

According to Volpe, complaints from flight attendants are expected to continue to increase and said some flight attendants are planning to file lawsuits.

"They've already contacted the ACLU," said Volpe when referring to some members of the union. "We don't know if somebody may have had an experience with a sexual assault and its (pat-down) going to drudge up some bad memories."


Which leads to the burning question: Which is the Greater Threat to American Liberty: Al-Quaeda or TSA?

Obama’s “Great Achievement” in Iraq: Much Ado About Nothing?

By John W. Lillpop

Earlier this year, Vice President Joe Biden startled the civilized world with his assessment of “great achievements” by the Obama administration.

In a classic demonstration of the dumbing down of U.S. politics, America’s government-funded clown said the following, in part:

I am very optimistic about -- about Iraq. I mean, this could be one of the great achievements of this administration. You're going to see 90,000 American troops come marching home by the end of the summer. You're going to see a stable government in Iraq that is actually moving toward a representative government.

I spent -- I've been there 17 times now. I go about every two months -- three months. I know every one of the major players in all the segments of that society. It's impressed me. I've been impressed how they have been deciding to use the political process rather than guns to settle their differences.


The most startling thing about the Veep’s comments is that he and his boss actually tried to take credit for a policy they bitterly opposed and would have killed had they been able to.

The second most startling thing is the current state of affairs in Iraq, which bears scant resemblance to any “great achievement,” however defined.

As widely reported in the media, in part:

The United States is open to the idea of keeping troops in Iraq past a deadline to leave next year if Iraq asks for it, U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Tuesday.

"We'll stand by," Gates said. "We're ready to have that discussion if and when they want to raise it with us."

A spike in violence in Iraq over the past two weeks has underscored the continued potency of al-Qaida and other Sunni extremists.


Hmmm.

Do you suppose Biden considers extension of US troops in Iraq an integral part of that“great achievement” of which he is so proud?

And how would those on the far-left, including anti-war zealots, assess the situation?

The fact is that Obama’s handling of Iraq is a “great achievement” only when compared to ObamaCare, the trillion dollar stimulus failure, unemployment, and other dismal failures by the Obama wrecking crew!

Comprehensive “Amnesty” Appears Dead: What Ever Shall We Do?









By John W. Lillpop

Moon bat liberals and Hispanic racists are in a deep dither over the election results because it now appears as though the foolishness know euphemistically as “Comprehensive” Immigration Reform, code for Amnesty for 12-38 million invading criminals, is dead in the water.

That “loud sucking sound” you hear is the noise generated by tens of millions of hands wringing in unison as Democrat politicians and advocates for illegals rue the latest turn of events.

How dare those haughty Americans ignore the contributions of tens of millions of dirt-poor, non-English speaking, illiterate, invaders who cost taxpayers more than $100 billion dollars a year?

All because of flimsy concerns about American national sovereignty, secure borders, homeland security, preservation of American language and culture, voter fraud,and the rule of law?

What to do?, they wail. In Spanish, of course.

Alas, there is a relatively simple solution, although its simplicity may not curry much favor among those who wish to re-make America into a suburb of Tee-Juana!

The Sane Solution: Enforce the bloody law!

Its official title is the “Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986", see Reference 1, and this jewel was put on the books the last time America’s elitists decided that grape pickers and operators of hi-technology leaf-blowers needed relief from those withering American shadows.

IRCA came about as a trade for amnesty granted to 3-4 million invading criminals from Mexico in 1986.

It was supposed to put an end, once and for all, to the illegal invasion of America. That was to be accomplished by enforcement of IRCA, a notion that no administration, neither Democrat nor Republican, has even remotely considered!

It is way past time for American politicians to enforce IRCA in full, including deportation of the 12-38 million foreign illegal aliens who have come here since IRCA was signed into law.

Deporting all those illegals back to Mexico could be a real blessing to Mexico IF President Felipe Calderon would do the smart thing and deputize the lot in the war against drug cartels.

Now THAT would be a wean-wean!

What About All Those Military Ballots, Mr. President?









By John W. Lillpop


Democrats are infamous for fretting over every single, last vote in order to assure that not one voter is disenfranchised.

Except, that is, when it comes to ballots cast by voters who probably voted Republican.

Which is why in 2000 Al Gore made a feeble effort to recount only heavily Democratic precincts in Florida; an act of attempted larceny that would have gifted him with enough votes to overcome W.’s lead throughout the rest of that great state.

That gambit failed miserably as the U.S. Supreme Court saw through Gore’s chicanery and refused to allow Democrats to steal the election.

As was the case in 2000, the Democrat Party and its hoodlum lawyers worked overtime on November 2 to suppress Republican votes, this time focusing on disenfranchisement of the very men and women who make it possible for Americans to vote in the first place.

That would be men and women in the United States military, most of whom vote via absentee ballot.

As reported at Reference 1, in part:


Eric Eversole, executive director of the Military Voter Protection Project, told CNSNews.com., "I'm incredibly concerned that ballots were mailed out 25 days before an election, meaning there is a significant chance they won't make it to service members prior to an election," "Will some troops be disenfranchised? Possibly. How widespread, I don't know."

As part of congressional hearings for the MOVE Act, studies showed it can take more than 30 days for a ballot to get to a combat area, Eversole said.

His organization called the apparent delays in mailing overseas ballots to the attention of Attorney General Eric Holder in September.

Last week, Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights Thomas Perez said the Justice Department has helped 65,000 voters through enforcement action.

But the Justice Department has not been doing what it needs to do to ensure that all military votes are counted, said Rep. Dan Lungren (R-Calif.), the ranking member of the House Administration Committee.

"If the Voting Rights Section has 20 staff members engaged in a nationwide compliance program, I would expect they would detect noncompliance promptly without relying on private organizations," Lungren wrote in an Oct. 28 letter to Perez.

"The claim to have 'helped' 65,000 voters whose ballots were, in fact, sent late seems to illustrate failure rather than success, and the department seems to be more focused on protecting its image than on building an effective mechanism to produce compliance."
As indicated in Reference 2, problems with the military vote were particularly acute in Illinois.

Illinois?

Is it sheer coincidence that Barack Obama’s home state was remise in making the vote accessible for those in the military who, for the most part, would vote against Obama’s Marxist cohorts?

Although the Republican tsunami has taken some of the urgency out of getting to the bottom of the mismanagement of the military vote, the GOP must not shrink from the challenge to investigate and punish those responsible.

No American is more deserving of the right to vote that American military folks and the GOP must move boldly to assure that those patriotic Americans are not denied this most precious right!

30 Dumb Lies Foisted on America by BHO & Friends

By John W. Lillpop

Over the past 22 plus months, there has been a quantum leap in the number of really dumb lies that our government has foisted on what they assume to be an unsuspecting public.

30 of the most pathetically stupid include:

( )When confronted with a domestic or international crisis of epic proportions, President Obama does not “dither”; rather, his is the cool, collected demeanor of a gifted intellectual who does his best decision-making while on the golf course, or while plopped on the beach at Waikiki;

( )Covering 30 million heretofore uninsured people with ObamaCare will lower overall health costs and eat away at the federal deficit;

( )Bankrupting the coal industry is a legitimate function of the federal government if it will help protect the environment;

( )Afghanistan is the “right” war.

( ) Conservatives like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Glenn Beck are dangerous demagogues who would do well to emulate the objective and non-partisan professionalism of Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews;

( )The 2008 elections ushered in an era of liberal dominance that will last 40 years, or longer;

( )Publicly announcing s definite time line for withdrawal of U.S. troops will in no way aid the Taliban or other U.S. enemies in Afghanistan;

( )Barack Obama is uniquely qualified by virtue of intellect, judgment, and temperament to unite America past hundreds of years of bitter racial rancor;

( )Single-party rule of both the Executive and Legislative branches is not a hindrance to honest, open government and has no impact whatsoever on transparency;

( )The Iraq war is among the greatest achievements of the Obama administration;

( )Paying higher taxes is the patriotic thing to do;

( )Thanks to Barack Obama, America is experiencing an era of post-partisanship and post-racism, unprecedented in this nation’s history;

( )The “inherited” Bush depression ended as a result of the Obama-inspired “Summer of Recovery”:

( )The U.S.-Mexico border has never been so secure;

Barack Obama's Cognitive Dysfunction














By John W. Lillpop

Barack “Dude” Obama has managed just enough humility to concede that his side was “shellacked” Tuesday last, and to acknowledge that his Marxist grip around the throats of the American people has been shoved away, ever so slightly.

Still, ‘Bama still has not been able to wrap his brain around the notion that his policies actually caused the great puke- out of November 2.

In Obama’s convoluted logic, November 2 had nothing to do with the Marxist nightmare known as ObamaCare, or the pandering to terrorist murderers, or the refusal of his administration to protect American citizens from criminal aliens from Mexico, or the Eric Holder “whites need not apply for justice” injustice department, or the exploding deficit which his spending has made all the worse, or his crude habit of apologizing for American policies (except his own) while on foreign soil, or his dithering in moments when decisive presidential leadership is essential, or the numerous other examples of offensive and anti-American nonsense originating with current occupant of the Oval Office.

As Obama sees it, his drubbing was not a reaction to his condescending, talking down, attitude toward the American people, or his bloated ego, or his narcissism, or his “holier than thou” demeanor, or his outright contempt for American values.

In Obama’s mind, the stomping that he and over 70 of like-minded Democrats in the U.S. House and Senate endured was nothing more than a communications breakdown, a simple case of not providing enough sizzle to allow unwashed nincompoops to grasp all the good that his brand of socialism was delivering.

This cognitive dysfunction can be seen clearly in Obama’s post-mortem analysis in which he said, approximately: “If unemployment were at 5 percent, no one would have any problem with my policies;” a classic dance around the truth and reality on Wednesday, the morning after.

With all due respect, Mr. President, your policies are the major reason why unemployment has not dropped to 5 percent, or lower, several months ago!

Were it not for ObamaNomics, American businesses would have reduced unemployment AND saved taxpayers the trillion dollars wasted on the “stimulus” folly.

Further, were it not for your bitter contempt for capitalism and private enterprise, the full force and power of the U.S. government would not have been used to ambush American business, the Chamber of Commerce, and the most successful of Americans through mindless, anti-success policy.

A worker-friendly administration would have recognized that jobs are created and sustained by encouraging, rather than obstructing, private enterprise.

Incidentally, when health care reform was gerrymandered through the Congress in March, you personally assured Democrats anxious for their political careers that ObamaCare would be wildly popular with voters and would, in fact, help those who supported your Marxist scheme get re-elected.

On Tuesday night, the only thing wildly popular about ObamaCare was the mad rush to kick those who installed this monstrosity out of office, while making it perfectly clear that they were no longer welcome in Washington!

If your dismal showing was only about communications lapses, sir, how is it that Americans knowingly jeopardized the future of your “signature” legislation by voting for scores of politicians committed to expunging said bill, fully or in part, from public law?

Pardon the audacity, sir, but it would appear that you are at risk of wasting a perfectly fine “teaching opportunity” with your refusal to face the truth, which, simply stated, is as follows:

CHANGE as defined by you, is NOT something that most Americans need or want!

Congressional Newcomers to Obama: Roll Over, Dude!

Satire by John W. Lillpop

In remembrance of President Obama’s infamous whining that Republicans “treat me like a dog,” GOP freshmen, including ladies where appropriate, coming into the 112th Congress have decided, unanimously, to reboot the Obama-Congress relationship.

Get a new start—CHANGE, if you will.

In keeping with this new spirit and in light of the president’s calamitous election results, the newcomers have agreed on a motto that will reflect proper respect for the Obama presidency while preserving the autonomy and independence of the legislative branch.

The new motto—Roll Over, Dude!—is certain to draw criticism, mostly from dog lovers loathe to see canines brought so far down, so quickly.

Still, the motto is a catchy reminder of just who is in charge after Tuesday’s shellacking of liberals, Marxists, socialists, and those resembling liberals, Marxists, socialists, i.e., moon bat Democrats.

For his part, President Obama remained defiant, and unwilling to compromise on any of his core principles just to get along.

Said Obama from the Rose Garden of the White House just before fleeing Washington with most of the U.S. military and a goodly portion of the Treasury in tow on the way to Mumbai:

“Let the message go forth to friends and foes alike: The torch of freedom has been passed to a new breed of Democrat, hardened by war waged by right-wing extremists stuck in the folly of the 18th century, most particularly the decade beginning with 1776.

I refer to simple-minded, gun-toting, Bible-thumping, red state racists who actually believe that arcane documents such as the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, and Bill of Rights have relevancy in the Age of Enlightenment, also known in sophisticated circles as ObamaMania.

These renegades, enemies worthy of unrelenting punishment, would like nothing better than to water-board yours truly in rancid tea to protest the legitimate and wholly fair transfer of wealth from the talented and overly successful to the untalented and slothful.

Notwithstanding this repugnant abuse of patriotic fervor, let the faithful rest in the knowledge that this president will never--repeat NEVER-- yield to political expediency just to curry favor with the vile and unwashed.

Indeed, we will fight tea party maniacs with every Senate and House seat we can offer, with how ever many billions of worthless dollars it may take, and with all of our spiritual might to prevent the backward slide of our great nation into one blinded by the promises of the antiquated U.S. Constitution as amended by the Bill of Rights.

Should we fail to achieve our objectives in this manner, then, and only then, will this president answer the GOP’s “Roll Over, Dude” order by aggressively demanding, “Where and when?”

May the force be with you, fellow dudes and duds!

And so it is: The new Obama-Congress relationship on display!


Obama Remembers Mumbai: What About Fort Hood, Sir?

By John W. Lillpop

President Obama began his 10 day, pre-holiday Asia vacation in Mumbai, India by memorializing the victims of the terrorist attacks from two years ago.

In a somber and respectful tone, he declared, “We’ll never forget.”

In making his remarks, the president delivered an appropriate message about the tragic events of November 26, 2008 which resulted in the deaths of 173 innocent people.

All well and good.

Unfortunately, the president’s staff must have forgotten an equally memorable terrorist attack, one that took place at Fort Hood, Texas on November 5, 2009.

Indeed, while Obama and his entourage were jetting off to India on a $200 million a day junket, the president was silent about the one year anniversary of the Fort Hood shooting in which Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan is accused of killing 13 Americans and injuring 30 others.

Why did this president choose to ignore the victims of the Fort Hood massacre on the one-year anniversary of one of the worst mass shootings ever on an American military base?

Earth to Joe Biden: Tuesday Night Was a BFD!


By John W. Lillpop



Just before President Obama signed his Marxist health care bill into law last March, Vice-president Joe Biden set the proper tone for this bureaucratic diarrhea when he declared, on live television, “This is a BFD!”

Of course, President Obama and other moon bat progressives were suitably amused by Biden’s F bomb and used the Veep’s simple-minded vulgarity to sell all sorts of Democrat trinkets and memorabilia to commemorate the formal decline and fall of proper English by government officials.

Fast forward to November 2, 2010.

Listen up, Joe, for another BFD moment, of even greater import, has been recorded!

That would be the no nonsense dismissal of sixty-four or so Democrats from the U.S. House and the six or seven seats in the Senate that have been returned to sanity.

Most gratifying of all, the reign of Nancy Pelosi as Shrieker of the House has been abruptly terminated.

Now THAT is a BFD!

U.S. Citizens Slaughtered in Ciudad Juarez: Whither Obama?

By John W. Lillpop

On the odd occasion when U.S. Border Patrol Agents are forced to shoot and kill an invading criminal from Mexico in self-defense, the entire government of Mexico goes apoplectic, lead by President Felipe Calderon who DEMANDS an investigation while appealing to the United Nations and the world community for support.

Mind you, the Mexican Mental Meltdown is all about a vicious criminal who was attempting to smuggle drugs and or people into America.

However, when it comes to innocent Americans being slaughtered in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico while engaged in tourism, the silence from the White House and the left is palpable.

The latest outrage from our third-world neighbor involves the death of five U.S. citizens over the past week.

As reported at the link, in part:


CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico — A U.S. university student died Wednesday from a shooting attack on a car in Ciudad Juarez, making him the fifth American slain in the violent border city in six days.

Eder Diaz, 23, a student across the border at the University of Texas at El Paso, was attacked Tuesday evening along with classmate Manuel Acosta, 25, the U.S. Consulate in Ciudad Juarez confirmed in a statement e-mailed to The Associated Press.
Gunmen opened fire on a car in which the two were traveling, according to an investigator from the state of Chihuahua, where Ciudad Juarez is located. The investigator spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the case.

Acosta was killed at the scene, while Diaz died early Wednesday at a Juarez hospital, university spokesman Steve Lazarin said. Diaz was a business major and Acosta a computer information systems major, he added.

In a recent photograph from the El Paso Times, the two are shown smiling and high-fiving a car dealership owner as he entered a classroom for a talk with students.

The consulate said it had not yet confirmed whether Acosta was also a U.S. citizen. The investigator said he was from Chihuahua's capital of the same name.
Diaz was the fifth U.S. citizen to be killed in Ciudad Juarez since Friday. All the victims were from El Paso, Texas, which is located across the border from Ciudad Juarez.”



At the very least, President Obama should be demanding that the government of Mexico protect American citizens foolish enough to visit the deadliest city in the world, or face grave consequences.

Grave consequences, like sending U.S. troops into Ciudad Juarez to ferret out the murdering cowards and bringing said thugs to justice.

Instead of using his bully pulpit to demand the safety of Americans in Mexico, our hapless president, and his partners in political malfeasance at the U.S. Congress, waste their time and energy in crafting plans to grant amnesty to 12-38 million invading criminals from Mexico.

When will Barack Obama “Man up” and defend against the wanton slaughter of innocent Americans in Ciudad Juarez?

Obama’s Tin Ear on Excessive Spending

By John W. Lillpop


It has been reported that as many as 42 million Americans now receive food stamps from the government.

Personal bankruptcies are soaring, mortgage foreclosures will top a million, this year alone.

Unemployment continues to haunt millions of American families.

The federal deficit has exploded.

Despite the dreary reality that most Americans face on a daily basis, President Obama’s vacation to India and Indonesia is astounding in scope and cost.

As reported at Reference 1, in part:


The White House will, of course, stay in Washington but the heart of the famous building will move to India when President Barack Obama lands in Mumbai on Saturday.

Communications set-up and nuclear button and majority of the White House staff will be in India accompanying the President on this three-day visit that will cover Mumbai and Delhi.

He will also be protected by a fleet of 34 warships, including an aircraft carrier, which will patrol the sea lanes off the Mumbai coast during his two-day stay there beginning Saturday. The measure has been taken as Mumbai attack in 2008 took place from the sea.

Arrangements have been put in place for emergency evacuation, if Obama is expected to fly by a helicopter -- Marine One -- from the city airport to the Indian Navy's helibase INS Shikra at Colaba in south Mumbai.

Two jets, armed with advanced communication and security systems, and a fleet of over 40 cars will be part of Obama's convoy.

Around 800 rooms have been booked for the President and his entourage in Taj Hotel and Hyatt.

The President will have a security ring of American elite Secret Service, which are tasked to guard the President, along with National Security Guards (NSG) and personnel from central paramilitary forces and local police in Mumbai and Delhi.

Similar arrangements will be in place in Delhi, with the Air Force One to be kept in all readiness throughout Obama's stay here from Sunday afternoon to Tuesday morning.

Maurya Hotel, where the President will stay, has already been swarmed by American security personnel and protective measures have been put in place.

Security drills have already been carried out at the hotel as well as Rajghat, where he will visit.

Sources said 13 heavy-lift aircraft with high-tech equipment, three helicopters and 500 US security personnel have arrived in India ahead of Obama's visit.

The US security has also brought interception and obstruction device, sniffer dogs, rescue gadgets.

Apart from Obama's Air Force One, a few private luxury jets carrying top American corporate leaders, who are part of Obama's entourage, are also expected to arrive in India in the next 2-3 days.

All high-rise buildings in the vicinity of Mumbai's Taj Mahal hotel and Delhi's Maurya Sheraton hotel, where the US President will stay, are being sanitised and security personnel will be positioned on rooftops to prevent any air-borne attack.

The Ridge area - opposite Delhi's Maurya Sheraton hotel - has been illuminated by floodlights as part of the heightened security drill.

The Home Ministry has already issued an alert for Mumbai and Delhi asking authorities to take extra precautions during Obama's visit as well as on Diwali on Friday.”


Clearly, the Obama trip will cost American taxpayers millions of dollars, although the exact tab is unknown.

Still, the burning question remains: Is the trip necessary as planned, and what are the supposed benefits to the American people?

These sorts of questions need to be posed by the next Congress because it is clear that Barack Obama has not a clue on his own elitist excesses and the Democrat Party dropped oversight from it's job description effective January 20, 2009.
