What About ’Constitutional Right’ to Low Tuition?

By John W. Lillpop

California, notorious for being the leader in unconventional, often bizarre, lifestyle choices and political quackery, has added a new cause to the “Occupy” nonsense.

Sparked by pampered, out-of-touch brats posing as students, the latest in-vogue outrage is called “What About the Constitutional Right to Low College Tuition?” See reference.

Of course there is no such guarantee, explicit or implied, in any local, state or federal law. That bitter truth notwithstanding, California’s young have been raised to believe that what so ever they shall desire is bequeathed to their greedy generation somewhere in the Constitution.

The challenge is to root out the applicable law (regardless of how contrived)to match their special needs and then ORGANIZE, PROTEST, MARCH, and DEMAND immediate redress for grievances, real or imagined.

Of course, the issue always comes down to money. “Who is going to pay the bill for acceding to student demands?”

Again, because they have been raised in California, students here do not waste a great deal of energy, physical or intellectual, on trivial matters like cost.

The urgent priority is to provide every student with a quality college education, regardless of costs, state budget constraints, or law.

According to the brain-washed California student, the solution is always “Tax the Wealthy!” a Marxist, anti-American notion that is a byproduct of living in a state dominated by liberals and governed by Jerry Brown, rightfully known as “Moon Beam” for his eccentric, loony-left politics.

And yes, that is the same recycled Jerry Brown who mismanaged California thirty-six years ago, the same fellow who then went on to destroy Oakland as Mayor, and who has earned a living by working against the interests of California citizens at the state and local levels for decades!

Governor Brown, the left-wing radical who recently signed the “Dream” Act which makes illegal aliens eligible for in-state tuition.

Imagine that?

California allows illegal aliens to qualify for lower tuition while raising the tuition of citizens?

But perhaps Moon Beam Brown has inadvertently stumbled upon a solution for the tuition crisis facing students who also happen to be citizens?

The Brown solution: Students interested in low -cost education should renounce their US citizenship, move to Mexico, and then invade America as illegal aliens!

As illegal aliens, students will automatically be eligible for lower-tuition, food stamps, housing, free medical care, and free legal counsel!

Once again, progressive insanity overwhelms common sense American values!



U.S. Senate Vote Defies Obama on Terrorists!

By John W. Lillpop

In yet another sign of President Obama’s waning influence in general and the Congress in particular, the U.S. Senate passed a bill that Obama has threatened to veto.

As reported at the reference:

Defying a veto threat from President Obama, the Senate voted Tuesday to preserve language that would give the U.S. military a crack at al Qaeda operatives captured in the U.S., even if they are American citizens.

Led by Sen. Carl Levin, the Michigan Democrat who chairs the Senate Armed Services Committee, senators voted 61-37 to preserve the language that gives the military custody of al Qaeda suspects, rather than turning them over to law enforcement officials.

“We are at war with al Qaeda and people determined to be part of al Qaeda should be treated as people who are at war with us,” Mr. Levin said.

He and Arizona Sen. John McCain, the ranking Republican on his committee, had struck a deal earlier this month on giving the military priority custody, while allowing the administration to waive that and give civilian authorities priority if it deems the waiver in the interests of national security.

The White House and its Senate allies objected and tried to block the changes, instead calling for the issue to be studied further.

They argued giving the military priority could complicate investigations into terrorist suspects in the U.S., and said it opens the door to indefinite military detention of U.S. citizens.

“We’re ignoring the advice and the input of the director of the FBI, the director of our intelligence community, the attorney general of the United States,” said Sen. Mark Udall, Colorado Democrat, who led the effort to block the compromise.

The White House earlier had threatened to veto the bill over the provisions, saying they amounted to an effort to micromanage the war on terror.”

Kudos to Senator Levin and the other 60 senators who voted to put American national security interests ahead of progressive fantasy thinking when it comes to Al-Quaeda!


Barney Frank Legacy: Foreclosing on the American Dream

By John W. Lillpop

In a belated Thanksgiving blessing for the people of Massachusetts and the US House of Representatives, Barney Frank announced that he will not seek reelection in 2012, thus ending his personal assault on the American Dream.

Frank stated that his decision was based, in part, on redrawing of his congressional district. Thank God for redistricting—it worked to the benefit of the People, at least in this case!

Aside from his sordid private life, including work on behalf of a male prostitute that he had employed as a personal aide, Frank will be remembered for efforts to scuttle prudent underwriting standards for home ownership in order to allow people with insufficient income, employment history, credit history, and assets to purchase homes which they simply could not afford.

That advocacy, ostensibly on behalf of the “Little Guy,” was executed through Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and was a major factor in the total collapse of the housing market.

Because of Frank and other bad actors, the collapse of housing effectively ended the American Dream for millions of “little guys” and others in what was once known as the great American middle class.

Frank’s decision to end his career was announced, in part, at the reference:

The 71-year-old Frank, among the most liberal representatives, will announce at a Bay State press conference Monday afternoon that he will not seek re-election in 2012 to the seat he has held since 1981, his office said.

The Boston Globe cited a source close to Frank as saying a big reason for his decision is the redrawing of his district, which will add more conservative voters and drop the heavily Democratic city of Bedford.

Frank is a ranking member of the powerful House Financial Services Committee and had served as its chairman until this year, when the Democrats lost their majority in the chamber.

He is best known for co-authoring the sweeping new regulations on Wall Street that passed Congress last year in response to the financial crisis that began in 2007.

More than two decades ago, Frank was reprimanded by the House for using his congressional status on behalf of a male prostitute whom he had employed as a personal aide, including seeking dismissal of 33 parking tickets.”
Barney Franks’ long overdue departure is to be placed in the ‘better late than never” file where it can be reviewed and celebrated with great joy for years to come!



What Happens When Commander-in-Chief Abandons Post?

By John W. Lillpop

President Barack Obama is fond of “Leading from Behind” when it comes to international conflicts and issues. The fact that Muammar Gaddafi was removed from power at the hands of Libyan opposition forces is cited by Obamamites as proof that the president’s strategy works.

Other presidents would have been accused of ‘abandoning post’ had they failed to lead and engage. However, even after ObamaMania has been dropped by reasonable people for the most part, the liberal media hangs on to the image of Barack as the Messiah, Superman, and Bat Man all rolled into one contemptuous Marxist.

There are exceptions such as the story at the reference which reports on Obama’s golf outing at a time when the Pakistan government has cutoff supply lines to Afghanistan and other crises and near crises boil throughout the globe:

It is an unseasonably warm 65 degrees in the Washington area, and President Obama has bolted out of the White House to go golfing.

It’s his 30th time golfing this year and the 88th golf outing of his presidency.

He’s at the Andrews Air Force base course with one of his usual crew, White House trip director Martin Nicholson, as well as Marvin’s brother Walter and Reggie Love.

Love, who is Obama’s personal assistant – or “body man” – is not usually a golfing companion. So the outing may be a farewell gift to Reggie, who is leaving by the end of the year.”

What of Iran and its pursuit of the nuclear weapon? The wanton slaughter of citizens in Syria? Disruptions in Egypt?

What about the $15 trillion dollar federal debt? Nine percent unemployment?

Obama’s answer? FOUR!


Remembering Bob Clark at Christmas

By John W. Lillpop

Yet another Christmas season 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 was not around to celebrate last Christmas. 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 on April 4, 2006.

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.

Pity that the illegal alien was not subjected to cruel and unusual punishment.

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

WND: http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=53103

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.

LA Mayor Villaraigosa: “Trampled Grass” Trumps Economic Justice!

By John W. Lillpop

Like most liberal mayors, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is in a severe conundrum: In his inner Marxist-self, Villaraigosa feels deep sympathy for the “Occupy” brothers and sisters whom have brought their anti-American and anti-business signs, chants, and filth to LA.

On the other hand, Villaraigosa IS the mayor and, by virtue of that unfortunate fact, is expected to maintain minimum levels of cleanliness and sanitation in accordance with prevailing American standards for assuring public health and safety.

What to do?

How to keep the Occupy renegades appeased while preventing City Hall Park from being transformed into one huge out- door public toilet, open to wild animals and Occupy whackos alike?

In keeping with his credentials as a “green freak” with a brown streak, Villaraigosa decided that his best chance for a win-win was to pull out the tried and proven “Trampled Grass” ploy.

As described at the reference, in part:

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa gave a lengthy tribute to Occupy LA protesters on Friday before telling them they must leave their encampment on the lawn of City Hall by 12:01 a.m. Monday, citing public health and safety concerns.

Villaraigosa, who has expressed sympathy for the protest's aims from its beginning seven weeks ago, announced the ouster at an afternoon news conference with police Chief Charlie Beck. He said the movement that has spread in two months from New York to numerous other U.S. cities has "awakened the country's conscience" - but also trampled grass at City Hall that must be restored.”

Devilishly clever as always, the mayor acted with confidence that, given the knot-headed “Green Fetish” which runs rampant in LA, the Occupy rowdies would immediately embrace his spiritual priority which holds that untrampled grass is far more important that “awakening the country’s conscience” with regard to economic justice.

It now appears that Villaraigosa may have significantly overestimated the value that untrampled grass holds for some.

As continued, in part, at the reference:

Outside City Hall, Occupy LA protester Opamago Casciani, 20, said he found the Mayor's priorities insulting, and he intends to continue demonstrating peacefully through the deadline.

In response to the Mayor's comments, Casciani said "What I got from it is `I value grass more than the people.'"

Immediately after the mayor announced the deadline, protester Jeremy Rothe-Kushel who was in the audience among the reporters, interrupted him, shouting that the group would not obey the order.

"As a collective, Occupy Los Angeles would like to express their rejection of the city of Los Angeles's alleged proposal that we leave City Hall," said Jeremy Rothe-Kushel, who said he represented the general assembly of Occupy LA and interrupted both Villaraigosa and Beck throughout the news conference.”

Once again, the mindless pandering of a liberal authority to Occupy thugs back fires and serves only to make a bad situation worse.

Time for Mayor Villaraigosa to abandon the “play nice” idiocy and get tough.

After all, tt is Villaraigosa's job to protect the health and safety of the entire LA population, rather than catering to the thugs and malcontents--the 1%--- that bring only filth and chaos to the city.



Top 10 Reasons Why Liberals Hate Christmas

Satire by John W. Lillpop

Most liberals hate Christmas for the following reasons:

The real messiah was born 1961 years after Christ in a mud hut somewhere in a Kenyan village just a few thousand miles outside of Honolulu;

Christians cannot produce a valid birth certificate for Jesus Christ; therefore, He is not, has never been, and never will be, eligible to serve as president or messiah;

Turning water into wine is nothing compared to Obama’s ability to turn paper (dollar bill) into precious metal (silver dime;

Nativity scenes are offensive because Joseph and Mary were not married;

Singing Christmas carols in public is not protected free speech because none of the founding fathers were exposed to Silent Night, O Little Town of Bethlehem, or any other of the violent anti-Muslim lyrics so popular these days;

Biblical accounts concerning the birth of Jesus are clearly flawed because there were not so many as three wise men in all of the Middle East back in those days, and continuing to this day;

Christmas trees are bad for the environment, are a serious violation of separation of Church and state, and piss off both Muslims and Jews;

Tolerance is essential, except when it comes to gap-toothed, Bible thumping red necks who actually believe that a baby Jew was born to a virgin just to save the world;

Children should be protected from Christmas nonsense like Santa Claus and his elves, whereas teaching the young about Obama and his minions in Congress is an essential part of a quality education

There you go: Liberal insanity at it best at Christmas!


Is 'Black Friday' Racist?

By John W. Lillpop

In the summer of 2008, Dallas County commissioners discussing traffic ticket collections were jolted when Commissioner Kenneth Mayfield, who is white, used the term "back hole" to describe the recurring problem of lost paperwork.

Mayfield's statement was immediately challenged by Commissioner John Wiley Price, who is black. Price belted out a loud "Excuse me!" and proceeded to upbraid Mayfield by saying that the problem of lost paperwork was the unwelcome byproduct of a "white hole."

That caused Judge Thomas Jones, who is black, to demand an apology from Mayfield for his racially insensitive analogy.

This dust up provided a keen insight to the precarious state of race relations in America and the obvious need for change.

Those who believe in fairy tales thought that Barack Obama, although the least qualified candidate for the presidency in decades, would bring healing to America in the area of race relations.

Unfortunately, Obama's "post-racial" America is not even close to being reality, partially because of missteps by Obama himself.

It was he who accused a white police officer of "acting stupidly" for arresting a black man who appeared to be involved in a crime.

In addition, the Obama administration's refusal to prosecute New Black Panther members for voter intimidation during the 2008 election serves to deepen the wounds of racial unrest and distrust.

Clearly, when it comes to race relations, Barack Obama is no "healer" nor even a reasonable voice. He would do well to heed the counsel of black entertainer Bill Cosby by keeping his mouth shut.

What to do, then, about the day after Thanksgiving? Traditionally, that day heralds the start of the Christmas shopping season, and is known far and wide as "black Friday."

Is that a racist term?

What of black sheep, black clouds, black box, black humor, black Monday, black magic, and black helicopters?

Indian summers, Mexican stand-offs, and white washes?

All to be stricken from the vocabulary of those who practice PC speech for fear of being of being regarded as racist?

I say to heck with it all.

Let the whiners and weasels debate the issue all they want.

Just don't get in my way when I have that $500 46" HDTV in my sights on Black Friday, mate!

Help Wanted--As Soon As Obama Leaves Office!

By John W. Lillpop

President Obama’s campaign rhetoric would leave the uninformed electorate with the impression that he is the only adult in Washington when it comes to creating and saving jobs.

The persistently-high unemployment figures are,according to Obama, the result of Republican resistance to his brilliant Jobs Bill (do not ask about the non-Republicans who voted with the GOP in the U.S. Senate).

Obama also points to the lingering effects of George W. Bush and an outbreak of laziness on the part of ordinary Americans as further arguments to exonerate himself from responsibility for the putrid economy and awful unemployment numbers.

However, many believe that Obama’s anti-business, anti-capitalism, pro-tax agenda has been a key factor in discouraging job growth.

As reported in the reference, in part, one business owner even refuses to hire new employees until The One is gone:

WACO, Ga. -- A west Georgia business owner is stirring up controversy with signs he posted on his company's trucks, for all to see as the trucks roll up and down roads, highways and interstates:

"New Company Policy: We are not hiring until Obama is gone."

"Can't afford it," explained the employer, Bill Looman, Tuesday evening. "I've got people that I want to hire now, but I just can't afford it. And I don't foresee that I'll be able to afford it unless some things change in D.C."

Looman made it clear that he is not refusing to hire to make some political point; it's that he doesn't believe he can hire anyone, because of the economy. And he blames the Obama administration.

"The way the economy's running, and the way my business has been hampered by the economy, and the policies of the people in power, I felt that it was necessary to voice my opinion, and predict that I wouldn't be able to do any hiring," he said.

Looman did receive some unexpected attention not long after he put up his signs and Facebook photos. He said someone, and he thinks he knows who it was, reported him to the FBI as a threat to national security. He said the accusation filtered its way through the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and finally the Secret Service. Agents interviewed him.

"The Secret Service left here, they were in a good mood and laughing," Looman said. "I got the feeling they thought it was kind of ridiculous, and a waste of their time."

So Bill Looman is keeping the signs up, and the photos up -- stirring up a lot of debate.”

Do not give up, Mr. Looman, because the American people seem to agree with you and, God willing, Obama will spend next Thanksgiving packing for his January 20, 2013 exit!



Adios, Newt Gingrich!

By John W. Lillpop

Newt Gingrich is ‘only’ 68 years old and seemingly in good physical health.

However, based on his performance at the foreign policy debate on November 22, Newt’s mental acumen is very much in doubt.

Specifically, in calling for amnesty for tens of millions of illegal aliens, one must ask, “Is Newt Gingrich too old to remember 1986?”

It was in 1986 that the Republican Party decided to put an end to illegal invasions from Mexico, once and for all!

And just how did the party of conservative Ronald Reagan take on that noble, but difficult, attempt to enforce the rule of law and defend American sovereignty, borders, culture, and language?

Amnesty for the illegals!

Indeed, Ronald Reagan granted amnesty to 3-4 million illegals as part of the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986, said action taken ostensibly to end the nightmare of foreign invasions forever.

Besides amnesty, IRCA set forth severe punishments for employers who hired illegals, and for deportation of the offending illegal aliens themselves.

In the intervening 25 years, the illegal alien problem has exploded into a national disgrace, a criminal abdication of constitutional responsibility which has allowed as many as 20 million additional illegals to invade our precious nation.

This invasion was allowed to continue even during time of war when President George W. Bush foolishly refused to seal off the borders, which should been accomplished immediately after the events of September 11, 2001.

Because of W’s myopic vision, illegal invasions have continued to the point where American taxpayers now spend more than $100 billion each year to support uneducated, impoverished invaders who do not speak English, and who generally have no desire to learn the language of the land.

W’s foolishness has lead to the demise of once-great American cities like Los Angeles which have become slum- suburbs of Mexico in language and culture.

The election of Marxist Barack Obama has made the problem even worse as he sees illegal aliens as future Democrats and has stopped enforcing the rule of law altogether in some situations involving deportations.

So just what is it that makes Newt Gingrich so anxious to be “Obama Light” when it comes to illegals?

Too old to remember 1986, Newt?

Russian Newscaster’s Emphatic “Nyet” to Barack Obama!

By John W. Lillpop

Russian newscaster Tatyana Limanova sent an early, and insulting, Thanksgiving message to America’s bratty President Obama.

In American slang, the young lady “flipped the bird” at our community organizer as reported at the reference:

“Online footage of the incident, which occurred earlier this month during an afternoon news bulletin on the privately held REN TV channel, is being avidly viewed in both Russia and the United States.

In the footage, Tatyana Limanova, an award-winning senior newsreader at the channel, can be seen briskly reading out an item about how Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has just assumed the rotating chairmanship of the Asia Pacific Cooperation organization.

She is then heard to say that the post "has (previously) been held by Barack Obama" before mechanically and unambiguously raising her left arm and showing the camera her raised middle finger in an offensive gesture that is sometimes known as "flipping the bird."

The channel, which goes out to 120 million people across Russia, has declined to comment. But sources close to it have tried to defuse the row by claiming that the newsreader had believed she was off camera at the time and merely providing a voice-over for a report. According to the same story line, the rude gesture was intended for studio technicians who had been trying to put her off her stride.”

White House Spokesman Jay Carney commented that the President understands the anger and frustration building in Russia which he sees everyday in America. Carney added that the president advised Limanova to seek an “Occupy Moscow” venue to vent her frustrations in a more appropriate manner.



Putting American Citizens Back to Work: Follow Lead of Alabama!

By John W. Lillpop

While President Obama refuses to deport illegal aliens and Janet Napolitano actually wastes government resources looking for jobs for invading criminals, great news comes the State of Alabama.

As the new immigration law is being enforced, unemployment drops!

As reported at the reference:

Unemployment Rates have fallen in Alabama amid new legal pressure on companies to comply with a popular immigration reform law.

September was the first full month that the reform was in force, and the unemployment rate fell from 9.8 percent in September to 9.3 percent in October, according to a Nov. 18 report from the state government.

“The latest fall in unemployment numbers is proof that American citizens will work, and continues to solidify [the evidence] that self-deportation [by illegal immigrants] due to the Alabama Taxpayer & Citizen’s Protection Act is occurring,” said Chuck Ellis, a city council member in Albertville — the main town in Marshall County, northern Alabama.

Since the law’s bipartisan approval in June, it has been furiously criticized by progressives, including leaders in ethnic interest groups, Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez and other leading officials in the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division. These critics say the law’s implementation violates civil rights.”

So for Barack Obama and those Democrats who claim to be interested in jobs, why not embrace deportation of illegal aliens as a way to increase employment among citizens?

Or is the Democrat Party more interested in pandering to Hispanics than serving American citizens?


10 Special Blessings Worthy of Thanks

By John W. Lillpop

With our blessed nation under assault from the very people we elected to protect and defend us and our Constitution, finding blessings to give thanks for this year is a chore that requires more due diligence.

Still, there ARE blessings which are praiseworthy.

My favorites include:

( ) Barack Obama is NOT twins, and has no male son to whom his Fascist Kingdom can be bequeathed.

( ) Rigid gun control laws limited the carnage from the Obama-Holder ‘Fast and Furious’ crime spree.

( ) Chris Matthews has matured and now realizes that Obama is a real pain in the rear, rather than a thrill running up and down his neurotic leg.

( ) My cable-TV package does not include the Keith Olbermann Countdown.

( ) Only $600 billion will be sequestered from the defense budget pursuant to the Super Committee failure--much to the dismay of lefties like Barney Frank and Nancy Pelosi.

( ) The federal deficit ceiling is NOT automatically raised to keep up with the plunging value of the U.S. dollar.

( ) Michelle Obama is NOT authorized to issue Executive Orders to meal planners and chefs other than the several score that work in the White House kitchen.

( ) Salt and sugar are still legal and generally available, except in Washington, D.C.

( ) Barack is too busy invading Uganda and Australia to involve himself with Iran and Syria, thereby saving America untold billions that would be expended on white surrender towels.

All in all, a paltry list to be sure.

Still, in the spirit of the Season, Happy Thanksgiving!


NASCAR Fans BOO Michelle Obama: Racism to Blame?

By John W. Lillpop

Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden were greeted with a lusty chorus of boos when their names were announced as Grand Marshals of the NASCAR season finale on Sunday. (See Reference 1).

Liberals will no doubt scream “Racism” in denouncing the rude greeting; however, the robust fan reaction was really about three years of failed governance at the hands of Barack Obama.

Michelle Obama was merely a symbol of the national anger and frustration with her husband and the following:

Marxist policies designed to transform America into a fascist nanny- state run by leftist elitists;

Anti-business policies and rhetoric which discourage the creation of jobs by private enterprise, and which perpetuate economic recession rather than growth;

Repeated denigration of the American people by the President when meeting with foreign leaders;

Policies which promote class warfare so as to divide Americans for political advantage;

Refusal to enforce immigration laws and aggressive legal action against sovereign states that choose to protect their citizens from illegal invasions by foreigners;

Commission and cover-up of deadly serious scandals such as Fast and Furious and the reckless, irresponsible and perhaps criminal mismanagement of taxpayer funds as in the Solyndra issue;

Foreign policy initiatives and rhetoric which signal to the world that America is no longer interested in being Number 1; and

Promotion of the notion that American Exceptionalism is a myth from the past, and implementation of policies that will lead to the decline and fall of the greatest nation on earth.

NASCAR fans were NOT booing Michelle because of her skin color or any other personal attribute of the FLOTUS; rather they were voicing their intense displeasure with the failed presidency of Barack Hussein Obama!



A "Moment of Silence" for Oscar Ortega-Hernandez?

By John W. Lillpop

For the record, I am NOT a fan of President Obama. In my view,significant, perhaps irreparable, damage has been done to America as a result of his presidency.

Furthermore, in my view Barack Obama does not deserve another term in office and, God willing, the American people will decline to renew his contract when elections are held next November.

That having been said, I do not personally hate President Obama, and would certainly never condone or celebrate any act which might threaten his well-being or life.

Unfortunately, certain freaks in the Occupy movement are far less tolerant of our failed Community Organizer, as reported at the reference:

During a protest outside the San Diego Police Department headquarters Wednesday night, Occupiers thought it befitting to hold a "moment of silence in solidarity" for Oscar Ortega-Hernandez, the man now charged with attempting to assassinate President Obama or a member of his staff when he shot at the White House last week. Occupiers simply referred to the shooter as a member of Occupy D.C. and "the guy who shot at the White House window."

And this is the movement for whom Nancy Pelosi prayed, "God Bless Them"?



Shock, Awe from Illegal Alien Paradise: California Faces $13 Billion Budget Crisis!

By John W. Lillpop

After electing the ‘mooniest’ of all bats to be Governor, California voters have no valid reason to be shocked or awed by the fact that the state once regarded as paradise is being transformed into a third-world trash heap.

Moon bean Governor Jerry Brown, aided and abetted by a Democrat-dominated state legislature, faces huge budget short falls as documented in the Legislative Analyst Office report found at Reference 1.

It turns out that some of the revenue projections made by the state are not being fulfilled, leading to nasty imbalances and the need for even greater spending cuts.

Even more bad news looms for the 73-year-old radical: Brown had hoped to reform the pension program for state employees as a means for dealing with outrageous spending.

However, as reported in the San Jose Mercury News, “California's top government analyst dealt a blow to Gov. Jerry Brown's proposed pension reforms Tuesday, suggesting that making substantial changes to the benefits of current workers is almost certainly illegal. If the state's Legislative Analyst's Office is correct, it leaves Brown in a difficult bind as he seeks to contain a rapidly escalating expense blamed for many of the state's budget woes. Once pension benefits are granted, the LAO said, workers and their unions cannot lose them unless they agree to give them up.

As the walls of economic ruin close in on Governor Brown and the liberals who run Sacramento, perhaps those in power should rethink the wisdom of the recently passed “Dream Act” which will fund goodies for illegal aliens and offspring?

Moreover, California spends approximately $10 billion a year on illegal aliens!

Is it not time for the Democrat Party to abandon its mindless advocacy on behalf of illegal aliens before attacking pension benefits earned by worthy citizens?

Secretary Chu Reaffirms Argument Against Affirmative Action

By John W. Lillpop

Progressives who worship at the altar of diversity were thrilled when Barack Obama rejected the notion of using background, experience, education, intelligence, and competence as measuring sticks for filling key posts in his administration.

Indeed, Obama brought change on a grand scale by using race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disability status, and ‘capacity for compassion’ as criteria for deciding whom to nominate for his cabinet, to serve on the Supreme Court, and for other important government functions.

The Obama Diversity Initiative removed a great deal of the subjectivity from the selection process and, when combined with appropriate quotas, seemed sure to make life in America more fair.

More fair, that is, for those who were viewed as ‘underrepresented’ in the Marxist formulation of quotas.

The president’s administration, we were told, would look like America!

All of which sounds grand, but which ultimately fell tragically short of reality.

Under the Obama diversity scam, America has been saddled with the likes of Janet Napolitano, Eric Holder, Ken Salazar, Hillary Clinton, Lisa Jackson, Kathleen Sebelius, Hilda Solis, Elena Kagan, Sonia Sotomayor, and Ron Kirk, each and every one of whom is actively contributing to the decline and fall of our once-great nation.

Timothy Geithner would be included were it not for his lily-white skin and blue eyes. Even so, the man is a dismal incompetent and should be sent packing immediately.

And let us not forget the name of Dr. Steven Chu, alleged Secretary of Energy, when citing the dangers of using affirmative action quotas for recruiting purposes.

Indeed, in testimony before Congress on November 17 concerning the Solyndra scandal, Dr. Chu made brutally clear the full extent to which affirmative action and the obsession with diversity have failed America.

Chu demonstrated an amazing lack of knowledge about communications within his own department, claiming to be unaware of red flags and warnings about the prudence of granting the Solyndra loan.

The Secretary also denied that politics played any role in his final decision to approve the loan; the fact that President Obama was chopping at the bit to fly out to Fremont, California to herald the great success of Solyndra for the evening news headlines was NOT a factor in funding the loan, said he.

Most distressing, Secretary Chu was tragically cavalier in his attitude: He saw no need to apologize to the American taxpayers for the loss of $540 million dollars, and he offered none.

Like most progressives, Secretary Chu has very little regard or respect for taxpayers and their money, and chafes at the notion that he, an intellectual elitist, should be held accountable for his management of our money.

When it comes to insensitive and incompetent bureaucrats like Steven Chu, America needs to clean house and retool.

God willing, we the people will do just that come November, 2012.


Herman Cain Asks, “What Is Cuban Word for Uzbekistan?”

Satire by John W. Lillpop

In what might be considered a fairly good week by some, Herman Cain finally discovered, wittingly or not, how to turn off the Gloria Allred harassment machine. As astute observers have noted, a full week has gone by since some weeping willow crawled out from under a rock with the dreary Allred in tow to allege that Cain made a gesture or spoke a word(s) that made the dame in question “uncomfortable,” which is a criminal act if committed by a black dude against a white femme in some states too close to the Mason-Dixon line.

Cain’s secret: Again, unwittingly or not, the Black Walnut discovered that revealing all he knows about foreign policy is almost guaranteed to drive Allred et. al, off the BREAKING NEWS headlines and front pages of the instruments run for the DNC by mainstream media.

The trick is to simply say something really bizarre or stupid.

For example, Cain knocked lord knows how many floozies off their games by suggesting that China does not have nuclear weapons.

That dilly sent Gloria Allred into a dither just as she was putting the finishing touches on a nation-wide teleconference call that would bring all of Cain’s accusers together for one group sob-athon to whine and bitch about the horrors of being made ‘uncomfortable’ by a Pizza King of African descent!

Cain’s next ploy was to go ‘brain dead’ during an interview in which he was questioned about Barack Obama’s policy in Libya. Again, his answer so shocked the political world that Gloria Allred could have held a news conference in the altogether and she would not have drawn a crowd, excepting only perhaps the “Pin Head” segment on the Bill O’Reilly comedy hour.

Sensing that he had the sawed-off old hag just where he wanted her, Cain went for Allred’s throat and the kill by saying that kicking the Taliban out of Libya would lead to lasting peace in the middle-east.

By the time that gaffe had finished reverberating, Gloria Allred had conceded defeat and was last seen hitchhiking a ride back to Los Angeles!

What might be next for the very transparent Herman Cain? How about, “What Is the Cuban Word for Uzbekistan?”

You go, Herman Cain!

With Iran Edging Closer to Nuclear Weapon, Obama Sends in Marines—to Australia!

By John W. Lillpop

President Barack Obama has the military expertise and common sense one would expect from a community organizer with no real world experience. Which is to say NONE!

Example: As the Islamic Republic of Iran marches closer and closer to being a full-blown nuclear menace, Barack Obama is in retreat mode from Iraq and Afghanistan, preferring instead to apply America’s military might to critical areas of the world. Like Uganda.

Or, as indicated in the reference below, Australia:

Starting next summer, the U.S. will send 250 Marines to bases here for six-month tours, eventually rotating 2,500 troops through the country. President Obama announced the partnership at a news conference with Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, describing it as a key step in his administration’s evolving emphasis on the Asia Pacific region as the U.S. winds down wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

“We are here to stay,” Obama said. “This is a region of huge strategic importance to us.”

A region of huge strategic importance, Mr. President? And
a contingent of 250 Marines will send a strong signal to China and the rest of the world that America is serious?

Good grief, is Obama so naïve that he cannot see that his foolish policies only make America look weak and have made us the laughing stock of the globe?



Scandal and Incompetence Occupy GOP Candidate Pool!

By John W. Lillpop

What in the hell is happening to the Republican men and women who once seemed so attractive in the race to replace Barack Hussein Obama with a freedom-loving American citizen?

In stunned silence, we on the right have stood by as heroes and heroines of our cause have walked off the plank of presidential candidacy into the dark, cold sea of political obscurity.

First it was conservative favorite Tom Pawlenty who decided that he did not have the wherewithal to fight the good fight any longer, which led the charisma-challenged former Governor to withdraw his candidacy.

Many were disappointed when Pawlenty bailed, yet back then the problem seemed to be an overcrowded field, rather than the opposite.

Besides the announced candidates, the rumor mill was ripe with speculation about the likes of Rudy Giuliani, Chris Christie, Sarah Palin, Marco Rubio, and lord knows how many others, all waiting in the wings to be drafted into service by conservatives ravenous for a reincarnation of Ronald Reagan to deal with Barack Obama as Reagan had with Jimmy Carter 30 years ago.

Alas, one by one, those magnificent would-be presidents came forward and tried on the Golden Slipper.

And one by one, each discovered that the slipper simply did not fit, for one reason or another, although in the case of Governor Christie, his foot was just too damn fat!

Still, the field included such stars and budding stars as Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, Newt Gingrich, Michelle Bachmann, Rick Santorum, John Huntsman, and newcomer Rick Perry.

Oh, and we must not forget a fellow named Herman Cain.

With that roster of firepower and talent, there was no need to fret about finding a suitable candidate, right?

Then the Rick Perry shoe dropped, even before the infamous “pause.” Shortly thereafter, Herman Cain started to make negative headlines with sexual accusations coming from former female associates, rather economists challenging “999.”

To make matters worse, Cain seemed confused about whether or not China has nuclear weapons and did a fantastic impression of the “Perry Pause” when discussing Libya, said pause being quite entertaining, but hardly presidential.

The bright light of hope continued moved to the personage of Newt Gingrich who despite some disturbing personal history, seemed formidable.

In fact, Newt seemed very formidable what with his keen intelligence and expertise as leader of the now defunct “Vast Right Wing Conspiracy” that drove Hillary Clinton to distraction 20 years ago. In short order, the former Speaker catapulted into the lead over Mitt Romney.

All looked swell until it was announced that Newt took over a million dollars from Freddie Mac after leaving office.

Freddie Mac for gosh sake, that gaggle of leftist moon bats who have all but destroyed the American Dream for millions of responsible Americans in order to reach out and “include” people who simply do not have the income, credit worthiness, employment history, or assets to qualify for home ownership!

Freddie Mac, that shadowy, suspicious institution, which along with Fannie Mae lost an additional $13 billion dollars of taxpayer money in 2011, for which several executives were rewarded with million dollar bonuses.

Egad, Newt, say it ain’t so!

Newt did try to explain his cavorting with Freddie by saying he served as a “historian” for a cool $1.2 million dollars.

For the record, Freddie declared that Newt was more of a “consultant.”

Either way, Newt, your credibility is shot. Who in the hell is going to trust you to smite big government now that we know that you actually spent time in bed (figuratively) with these charlatans?

And, lest we forget, earlier this year Gingrich blasted Paul Ryan’s “Path to Prosperity” with this tirade on Meet the Press:

I don’t think right-wing social engineering is any more desirable than left-wing social engineering. I don’t think imposing radical change from the right or the left is a very good way for a free society to operate… I’m against Obamacare, which is imposing radical change, and I would be against a conservative imposing radical change.

Unbelievable: A bloke living high on the public dole by working for Freddie Mac has the audacity to call the conservative blueprint for saving America “Right wing social Engineering.” Some gall that!

Still, remember fellow conservatives, Mitt Romney is a very strong candidate—excepting for his love affair with socialized medicine and gay marriage, and a sorry tendency to flop when he should flip.

What the hell is going on with my GOP?


Hey, GOP, Stop Lacerating Already!

By John W. Lillpop

Self-mutilation is never a pretty sight, unless it involves a whacked-out liberal offing his or her self, “for the children.”

Even then, although the net effect may be overall positive, the individual acts may be unseemly, and not suitable for consumption by family audiences.

Which brings to mind the decimation of the conservative movement by guys and gals who once seemed formidable in their individual quests to replace Barack Hussein Obama.

Silently we on the right have stood by as heroes and heroines of our cause have walked off the plank of presidential candidacy into the dark, cold sea of obscurity.

First it was conservative favorite Tom Pawlenty who decided that he did have the wherewithal to fight the good fight any longer, which led the former Governor from Minnesota to retrieve his hat from the ring.

Disappointed, we were back then, still the problem seemed to be one of an overcrowded field, rather than the opposite.

Besides the announced candidates, the aisles were still cluttered with the likes of Rudy Giuliani, Chris Christie, Sarah Palin, Marc Rubio, Rick Perry and lord knows how many others, all waiting to be begged to serve by an adoring electorate hungry for the reincarnation of a Republican with Ronald Reagan’s good looks and conservative rigidity.

One by one, those magnificent would-be presidents came forward and tried on the Golden Slipper.

And one by one, each discovered that the slipper simply did not fit, for one reason or another, although in the case of Governor Christie, his foot was just too damn fat!

Thus, emerged the pattern whereby a GOP hopeful bowed out graciously and expressed appreciation for support received, but then announced that he/she would NOT be a candidate for the U.S. Presidency, or what may be left of same at the end of four dreadful years of neglect and malfeasance at the hands of Barack Obama.

With each bowing out, one grew more wary of the declining number of candidates.

Still, the field included such stalwarts as Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, Newt Gingrich, Michelle Bachmann, Rick Santorum, John Huntsman, and newcomer Rick Perry.

And a fellow named Herman Cain.

With that roster of available talent, there was no need to fret about a suitable candidate, right?

Then the Rick Perry shoe dropped, even before the infamous “pause.” Shortly thereafter, Herman Cain started to make headlines with sexual accusations from former female associates, rather than “999.”

To make matters worse, Cain seemed confused about whether or not China has nuclear weapons and did a fantastic impression of the “Perry Pause” which was entertaining, but hardly presidential.

The bright light of hope continued to shine brilliantly around the personage of Newt Gingrich, a real conservative, who despite some disturbing personal history, seemed formidable.

Until today, when it was announced that Newt took over a million dollars from Freddie Mac.

Freddie “Freaking” Mac for gosh sake, that gaggle of leftist moon bats who have all but destroyed the American Dream for millions of Americans who live responsibly, just to “include” people who simply cannot afford home ownership!

Said moon bats declaring the loss of billions more of taxpayer money in 2011 and to whom millions were paid in bonuses for “good” performance!

Egad, Newt. Say it ain’t so—say you never fell for the pap from Freddie or Fannie!

Still, Mitt Romney is a very strong candidate—except for his love affair with socialized medicine and gay marriage, and a sorry tendency to flop when he should flip.

What the hell is going on GOP?

Stop lacerating already!


Let THEM Eat Poi---For the Elitist FLOTUS, It's Steak and Arugula Salad!

By John W. Lillpop

Poi is a Hawaiian word for the primary Polynesian staple food made from the corm of the taro plant (known in Hawaiian as kalo). Poi is produced by mashing the cooked corm (baked or steamed) until it is a highly viscous fluid.

One would expect that a food-conscious health advocate whom has appointed herself Queen of the global war on fighting obesity and poor health would promote poi as the preferred food of choice, especially while in the land of Aloha where this delicacy is abundant.

Actually, delicacy may be a stretch for a “food” that has the taste and substance of spoiled glue. Still, poi is good for you, or so they say.

Poi’s life-saving qualities notwithstanding, First Lady Michelle Obama exposed her preference for steak, commonly known among progressives as unhealthy, fat-laden, possibly unconstitutional, and a proven cause of global warming.

As reported in part:

The U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama has revealed during a trip to an organic farm in Hawaii that her 'favourite meal' is steak and arugula.

Mrs Obama had been discussing how to tackle childhood obesity in the U.S. when she described the simple meal of steak accompanied with the fragrant salad, also known as rocket, as her 'favourite'.
The First Lady had been at a roundtable discussion at the Ma’o Organic Farms in Waianae, Hawaii.”

Once again, the sheer hypocrisy of the Obamas is mind-boggling!

Obama’s “Occupy” Gambit: Another Populist Election Theme Backfires!

By John W. Lillpop

Like most issues Barack Obama gets involved with, the Occupy madness which has been crippling America from coast to coast has fallen apart and is now in full retreat. With long overdue assistance from police, by the way.

Even in Oakland, where Obama bobble head dolls are still a favorite request item in letters sent to Santa by hundreds of culturally-deprived brats, the Occupy Oakland movement has been sent packing.

As reported at the reference:

Police in riot gear moved into the Occupy Oakland encampment early Monday, tearing down tents and arresting some protesters, the latest effort by city officials across the country to gain control over a movement that some leaders say has become a public safety and health threat.

Oakland, California, police, aided by dozens of officers from nearby jurisdictions, arrested 32 people in the effort to clear Frank Ogawa Plaza near City Hall before dawn Monday, Interim Chief Howard Jordan said. There were no reports of injuries or complaints of abuse, he said.

The camp had become an unbearable drain on city resources, an economic threat to nearby businesses and a danger to public safety, Mayor Jean Quan said.

"The encampment became a place where we had repeated violence and this week a murder. We had to bring the camp to an end before more people were hurt," she said.”

How clever and wise of the Mayor to recognize what everyone else saw clearly early in October: Namely, the Occupy thugs are no-account hooligans looking for 15 minutes of fame from goofy liberal TV producers desperate to create an issue for Obama to run on.

In the end, it was the same-oh, and same-oh for the “short timer” Obama!



“Occupy” Crimes Now Include Rape & Murder: Still Approve, Princess Pelosi?

By John W. Lillpop

Back when the Occupy Wall Street hysteria was first gaining traction as a national movement, left-wing anarchists with attitude, including the likes of Barack Obama, were quick to embrace the movement as grass-roots affirmation of Obama’s anti-capitalism call for redistribution of wealth.

It was a gala, “Take that Plumber Joe!” moment for zany moon bats who envisioned a tsunami of public outrage that would sweep the Tea Party and all of the Republican Party out to sea, leaving instead a solid encampment of freaks who do not work, relieve themselves whenever and wherever they wish without regard for stench or sanitation, and who, above all else, considered Tea to be a lethal mind-altering substance, preferring instead to trust their futures to good dope and cheap booze.

Foremost among those embracing the OWS was none other than California’s very own Nancy Pelosi who actually sought divine intervention of behalf of the OWS crowd.

As reported at the reference, Princess Nancy called for divine blessings on the disorganized, smelly, and unkempt vagrants:

During a press conference Thursday afternoon, House minority leader Nancy Pelosi praised those participating in the "Occupy Wall Street" protests. "God bless them," Pelosi said, "for their spontaneity. It's independent ... it's young, it's spontaneous, and it's focused. And it's going to be effective."

"The message of the protesters is a message for the establishment everyplace," said the House Democrats' leader. "No longer will the recklessness of some on Wall Street cause massive joblessness on Main Street."

Pelosi did not comment on--and was not asked about--the law-breaking that occurred during the protest over the weekend. About 700 protesters were arrested by New York City police after the protesters "swarmed the Brooklyn Bridge and shut down a lane of traffic for several hours," according to CBS News.”
Ever since Princess Pelosi issued her supplication on behalf of OWS, the movement has “matured” into a one that now includes rape, murder and other unintended consequences.

The burning question for Pelosi is now,: Still praying for God to bless rapists and murderers, Princess??

Obama’s Latest idyllic Fairy Tale: “US, Russia Want Common Response on Iran”

By John W. Lillpop

Just how naïve, out-of-touch, and dangerous is Barack Obama when it comes to the deadly-serious prospect of Iran becoming a nuclear menace?

As reported at the reference, Obama’s tendency to use idyllic fantasy as the baseline for thinking about world affairs has The One joining hands with Russia to choke off the Iranians:

President Barack Obama said the United States and Russia would seek s “common response” to Iran’s nuclear challenge, despite strong reservations about new sanctions expressed by Moscow.

After meeting Russian President Medvedev, Obama said the sides” reaffirmed our intention to work to shape a common response so we can move Iran to follow its international obligations when it comes to its nuclear program.”

Missing in Obama’s Alice in Wonderland cognitive disconnect is the fact Russia views Iran as a staunch ally and continues to help expand the nuclear program there, for peaceful purposes only, of course!

In addition, though mostly tamed thanks to Ronald Reagan, common sense dictates that the Russians are not likely to do a whole hell of a lot to advance the interests of the US in Iran, or anywhere else.

In basketball terms that Obama might be able to understand, the Russian team is “the enemy.” Which means you apply a full-court press, 24/7!

During the most recent GOP debate, Republican Mitt Romney was eloquent in summarizing Obama’s irresponsible and reckless Iran policy.

As reported, in part, the Republican front runner said:

“SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) -- Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney says that if President Barack Obama wins a second term, Iran will obtain a nuclear weapon.

Romney opened Saturday night's GOP debate with strong criticism of Obama, the Democrat he hopes to challenge in 2012. He says that a Romney administration would prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon - even if that means using U.S. military forces.”
Kudos to Romney for telling it like it is!

Now get busy and win the Presidency!

What About Constitutional Right to Riot When Football Legend Axed?

By John W. Lillpop

Although not an avid fan of college football, I obviously knew of the name Joe Paterno and the deification afforded the legendary football coach, especially in Pennsylvania and Pennsylvania State University(PSU).

However, the news which broke this week concerning Paterno and his loyalists at PSU was simply too bizarre and shocking to believe.

As I understand it, over a 15-year period, Jerry Sandusky, defensive coordinator under Joe Paterno, committed numerous acts of sexual abuse against young boys, said violations witnessed by others and reported up the chain of command, including to Joe Paterno.

And despite the severity of the charges, Paterno and others did NOT contact the police.

It is my further understanding that when this crime wave and cover-up was disclosed in an explosive grand jury report, PSU officials fired coach Paterno over the telephone, thus abruptly ending his 45-year career with the Nittany Lions football program.

The most bizarre part of this story is that Paterno’s sacking caused a thousand or so students to take to the streets and riot. At first glance, one suspected that the rioters were acting in anger at the abuses heaped upon the eight young boys. A righteous call to justice?

Sadly, it turns out that the rioters were upset by the fact that the omnipotent Paterno was defrocked, and over the phone no less.

Thus the riots with the driving theme being, “What About my Constitutional Right to Riot When Football Legend Fired?”

And this is an institution of ‘higher learning’?

After Murder, ‘Occupy Oakland’ Thugs Finally Asked to Leave

By John W. Lillpop

Oakland Mayor Jean Quan’s wrong-headed policy with regard to the ‘Occupy Oakland’ crowd has resulted in the murder of a young man and issuance of an “enough is enough” plea from police in this liberal-infested town.

As reported, in part, at the reference:

OAKLAND -- The shooting death of a young man Thursday evening near Occupy Oakland is bringing more attention to the tent city and prompting calls for campers to leave quietly.

On Friday morning, the Oakland Police Officers Association joined the chorus with an open letter to the campers, asking them to "leave Frank Ogawa Plaza peacefully and immediately so Oakland police can get back to work fighting the devastating crime that's occurring in our neighborhoods."

Sgt. Dom Arotzarena, OPOA president, said the letter was sent out mainly because of Thursday's violence.

"In light of yesterday's violence, enough is enough. What more needs to happen? We would like to see the protesters leave peacefully," Arotzarena said.”

The scene was relatively quiet early Friday morning around Occupy Oakland and a shrine was set up near the spot where a man was shot and killed the previous night. The coroner's office not yet released the name of the man, pending notification of next of kin, and officials are only saying that he may have been in his 20s.

There's been no significant change in the number of tents on Frank H. Ogawa Plaza, despite Mayor Jean Quan's plea late Thursday for the campers to leave on their own in the wake of the shooting.”

The man was shot and killed at about 5 p.m., Thursday just yards from the entrance to the Occupy Oakland encampment, apparently after a fight with other men.

The killing, which came as hundreds of occupiers prepared to celebrate the camp's one-month anniversary, prompted Quan to call for the campers "to leave voluntarily tonight."

Once again, the utterly flawed policies of a left-wing mayor have hampered police and ended up costing a young man his life.

How many more murders will it take before state and federal authorities arrest Mayor Quan and take over this crazy town?


Death of Euro: “Teachable Moment” for Obama, Democrats?

By John W. Lillpop

As leaders of the Euro-zone are confronted with financial collapses, a grim new realty is beginning to emerge:

Socialism is a complete failure and simply does not work.

The big question for America: Is Barack Obama paying attention? Does he understand that socialism has proven, time and again, to be a recipe for economic Armageddon?

As reported, in part, at the reference, the official collapse of the euro may be imminent:

PREPARATIONS were under way last night for the break-up of the euro as Europe’s debt crisis spiralled out of control

As Treasury officials worked through the night to soften the impact on Britain, David Cameron warned that the single European currency was facing its “moment of truth.”

Ministers are understood to be deeply concerned that French President Nicolas Sarkozy and Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel are secretly plotting to build a new, slimmed down eurozone without Greece, Italy and other debt-ridden southern Euro- pean nations.

Well-placed Brussels sources say Germany and France have already held private discussions on preparing for the disintegration of the eurozone.

At the same time, City insiders yesterday speculated that the “death warrant” for the euro had already been written, with a new economic bloc dominated by Germany and France almost certain to emerge in its place.”

The collapse of the euro should serve as a warning to lefties like Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi that programs like ObamaCare will only make America’s financial crisis worse.

Are you listening Mr. President?



Perry ‘Brain Freeze’ Takes Heat off Cain

By John W. Lillpop

Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry traumatized the entire nation when he spent 53 seconds trying to remember which federal agencies he would cut, if elected.

Watching Perry scramble in a mind warp on national television caused excruciating discomfort, even to his foes.

As reported at the reference:

ROCHESTER, Mich. - Texas Gov. Rick Perry suffered from a severe case of brain freeze on stage at the ninth Republican presidential debate in Michigan on Wednesday night -- forgetting which federal agencies he would cut if elected president.

While answering a question about the federal tax code, Perry announced that he would eliminate three agencies.
"It's three agencies of government when I get there that are gone. Commerce, education and ..." Perry said before an exceedingly long, awkward pause.

Finally a rival tried to come to the rescue. "The EPA?" former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney chimed in.

"There you go," Perry said before admitting that that was not the one he had intended. Moderator John Harwood interjected, saying, "Seriously?"

"No sir," Perry replied.”

Perry’s self-demolition did provide a measure of peace for Herman Cain as the big story turned out to be Perry’s babbling incoherence.

This is another devastating blow to a field of candidates that looked formidable just a couple of months ago.


Oakland Mayor Quan Wants “Dialogue” with Occupy Thugs!

By John W. Lillpop

When is comes to a choice between advancing liberal chaos or governing with a common sense stance, Oakland Mayor Jean Quan initially chose the former. Her goofy policies actually encouraged the events that have left Oakland in a state of chaos.

The befuddled Quan has discovered, much to her chagrin, that the violence and discord brought by the Occupy Oakland crowd is costing the city jobs!

As reported at the reference:

Oakland Mayor Jean Quan on Tuesday called on Occupy Oakland protesters to designate official representatives to negotiate with the city and take steps to limit violence at future protests.

Quan issued a statement Tuesday saying that the encampment, which city officials say now includes around 180 tents, is hurting local businesses and stretching an already tight city

The statement called for a dialogue with representatives of those camping at Frank Ogawa Plaza to “move toward a peaceful resolution,” and encouraged individuals and organizations concerned with the encampment to reach out directly to protesters. She also asked protesters to ensure that further demonstrations are peaceful and that violent protesters are “isolated.”
Quan said Oakland is a “city of the 99 percent,” but the protest is costing it jobs. On Friday the city issued a statement that the encampment and protests had cost the city more than $1 million as of Oct. 28.

“Local businesses are hurting because of vandalism and reduced patronage,” Quan said. “Neighborhoods are hurting because city services already stretched by budget cuts face additional demands responding to emergencies downtown.”
“While we support the call for broader participation in political and economic democracy, we cannot ignore violence, property destruction and health and safety issues in Frank Ogawa Plaza,” she added.”
With all due respect to Mayor Quan, the solution to the violence and chaos is NOT to seek dialoge with the terrorists who call themselves Occupy Oakland.

Rather, Quan needs to speak adult with the heathen protestors and make it clear that Oakland has a ‘zero tolerance’ policy when it comes to violence and civil disruption.

She should back up her tough talk by empowering the Oakland police to do their jobs without constraint.

After all, Mayor, the issue is jobs!

No one, be they a billionaire or a street thug should be allowed to interfere with the public’s right to gainful employment.

Forget all the pampering and coddling: Do your job and protect the interests of the 99 percent who act responsibly.



Even With His “Stimulus Package,” Herman Cain Is NO Bill Clinton!

By John W. Lillpop

As the pubic dismantling of Herman Cain moves forward full throttle in a joint venture between the DNC and the mainstream media, Mr. Cain has been subjected to a new allegation by a woman who claims that, back in 1997, Cain groped for her genitals and tried to force her into an unwanted sexual act.

These serious charges were described by dirt-bag attorney Gloria Allred as an attempt on Cain’s part to share his ‘stimulus package’ with Sharon Bialek, the alleged victim.

Allred’s idiotic attempt at humor notwithstanding, the fact remains that the accusations against Cain are relatively benign when compared to the alleged and in some cases confirmed behavior of Bill Clinton.

Indeed, Clinton was accused of rape by Juanita Broaddrick, sexual harassment by Paula Jones and Kathleen Wiley, and sexual cavorting by miscellaneous women too numerous to list.

In trying to cover up his White House dalliances with Monica Lewinsky, Clinton perjured himself, obstructed justice, and was accused of suborning a jury.

And Clinton actually paid Paula Jones the munificent sum of $800,000 for some reason or another, all the while maintaining his innocence.

Clinton was also disbarred and prohibited from arguing before the U.S. Supreme Court.

For the most part, the liberal media argued that the Lewinsky matter was a personal matter best left to Bill and Hillary to sort out.

However, when it was disclosed that people acting on behalf of Herman Cain had paid $35,000 and $45,000 to his accusers, moon bats in the leftist media insisted that that must mean that Cain was guilty of some unimaginable offense(s), which should automatically disqualify him from the presidency.

How can the American people put their trust and faith in a man for whom thousands of dollars were shelled out to buy silence, they screamed?

“If he is not guilty, why was $35,000 paid on his behalf?”, a question not asked with regard to the $800,000 sent to Paula Jones.

All of which leads to this declaration: Even with your ‘stimulus package,’ Herman Cain, You’re NO Bill Clinton!


365 Days and Counting

By John W. Lillpop

Just one year from now, on November 6, 2012, Americans will be empowered to end the nightmare occupation of our precious homeland by Barack Hussein Obama, a dedicated socialist who has great disdain for American history and values and who came into office with the arrogant notion that he had the experience and wisdom to ‘fundamentally transform’ the greatest nation in human history.

As of this date, November 6, 2011, the Obama Administration has been an unmitigated disaster, both domestically and internationally.

Barring some dramatic event, or series of events, this man will be sent back to the streets of Chicago (or Honolulu) after one tumultuous term in which he, supposedly the chief law enforcement authority of the nation, scoffed at the rule of law and encouraged illegal behavior by others while routinely violating the Constitution himself to advance his extreme ideological agenda.

Barack Obama’s forced exit on January 20, 2013 will be welcomed with a huge sigh of relief by scores of millions of Americans who love freedom and demand liberty from oppressive government interference.

For all of his policy gaffes, the most important failing of Barack Obama is that he never really seemed like an American.

Owing to his disrespect for American history and values,
Barack Obama never seemed comfortable as president.

On January 20, 2013, Barack Obama will be set free, and the American people can begin the process of healing from the awful nightmare that has consumed this great nation for four, long years.

The big question: Can the American people wait another full year for the return of our great republic?

Cain Accuser: “No Value in Discussing Matter Further”

By John W. Lillpop

The woman who filed a formal sexual harassment complaint against Herman Cain at the end of the last century has decided to remain in the comfort and security of anonymity.

As reported, in part, at the reference:

One of the women who accused Republican presidential contender Herman Cain of sexual harassment released a statement through her lawyer Friday saying that she "stands by" her complaint, which was made "in good faith about a series of inappropriate behaviors and unwanted advances."

There was "more than one incident" of harassment involving Cain and his client over the span of a couple of months in 1999, attorney Joel Bennett said.

Bennett said his client, married for 26 years, will not reveal her identity because "she and her husband see no value in revisiting this matter now nor in discussing the matter any further publicly or privately."

"In fact," he added, "it would be extremely painful for her to do so."

Bennet’s statement comes as a huge disappointment to Democrat operatives and the mainstream media who had counted on breaking news alerts and headlines about Cain’s sexually abusive past for at least a fortnight, or until the uppity black was forced to abandon his ill-conceived,fanciful candidacy for the U.S. Presidency,

Democrats and the media had visions of daily revelations involving other women, all shielded by invisibility cloaks crafted by clever leftist lawyers, who would claim that Cain made them “uncomfortable,” in one manner or another.

Breaking news headlines would expose the kinky details about the gestures and words that Cain allegedly used to torture his victims with brutal discomfort.

Again, the operative word-- anonymous.

Muckrakers with contracts let by the DNC would let it be known that Cain was drinking heavily, and a firestorm would ensue with rumors that Cain was close to admitting his substance abuse problems and was seriously considering admitting himself to a rehabilitation center.

The strategy being, when all else fails, declare that you are a helpless victim of substance addiction, but that you are on the road to recovery and with God's help will be heard from again in the future. Ala, Anthony Weiner, etc, etc.

On and on it would go, while the truly important events of the day would wither and die from lack of attention.

Alas, it was just not meant to be because some unnamed woman did not wish to expose herself to the non-stop assault on her personal life that would happen were she to go public.

For that selfish act of cowardice, America owes her,whomever she happens to be, a debt of sincere gratitude.

Now, can we get on with the business of saving our blessed nation from the clutches of Barack Obama and his Marxist agenda?

Let’s get on with the urgent need to install a pro-American, pro-jobs, pro-business government that will listen to we the people.

America Needs Herman Cain!


“Transparency & Open Government” AWOL from Obama White House!

By John W. Lillpop

Much ado was made about President Obama’s pious commitment to transparency and open government in the early days of his administration. It was, after all, a key ingredient in The One’s master plan to fundamentally transform America and to bring about much-needed Change and Hope for the masses.

President Obama even issued the following memorandum to administration officials:

Transparency and Open Government Memorandum for the Heads of Executive Departments and Agencies

SUBJECT: Transparency and Open Government

My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government. We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government.

Barack Obama

Wow! That is certainly a powerful commitment to principle and doing the right thing. It was very was wise of Obama to make his position clear and unequivocal.

So nearly three years on, just how is that Transparency and Open Government thing working out, Mr. President?

If asked, I am certain that Obama would claim complete success and trumpet this as yet another major achievement in a bitterly partisan environment where men of lesser quality would cave in to the temptations of partisan wrangling by hiding behind the Bully Pulpit of the U.S. Presidency.

But not Barack Hussein Obama, right?

How, then, to explain the actions of White House Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler with respect to a subpoena issued by House Republicans concerning the Solyndra scandal?

As reported at the reference, Counsel Ruemmler rejected the subpoena out of hand:

President Obama's attorney sent a letter to Congressional investigators on Friday, saying the White House would not cooperate with a subpoena requesting documents related to its doling out a $535 million loan guarantee to now bankrupt solar panel manufacturer Solyndra.

"I can only conclude that your decision to issue a subpoena, authorized by a party-line vote, was driven more by partisan politics than a legitimate effort to conduct a responsible investigation," Obama's counsel, Kathryn Ruemmler, wrote in a letter to the top Republicans on the House Energy and Commerce committee.”

Excuse me, Counsel, but you are supposed to be representing THE agent for Change and Hope, the man in whom God has entrusted the mantra “Transparency & Open Government” for this and all future generations to heed both in spirit and letter!

Refusing to comply with a properly-executed instrument of the Congress based on flimsy musing about ‘partisan politics’ is simply not ‘cool’ in this, the Enlightened Age of Barack!

Back to the reference:

Committee chairman Rep. Fred Upton, R-Mich, blasted the White House response:

“We have been reasonable every step of the way in this investigation, and it is a shame that the Obama Administration and House Democrats continue to put up partisan roadblocks to hide the truth from taxpayers. Solyndra was a jobs program gone bad, and we must learn the lessons of Solyndra as we work to turn our economy around and put folks back to work.
Our judicious and methodical work over the last eight months has garnered tens of thousands of pages of documents from DOE and OMB that have proven we are on the right track. Now, we need to know the White House’s role in the Solyndra debacle in order to learn the full truth about why taxpayers now find themselves a half billion dollars in the hole. The White House could have avoided the need for subpoena authorizations if they had simply chosen to cooperate. That would have been the route we preferred, and frankly, it would have been better for the White House to get the information out now, rather than continue to drag this out. Our request for documents is reasonable - we are not demanding the President’s blackberry messages as we are respectful of Executive Privilege. What is the West Wing trying to hide? We owe it to American taxpayers to find out.”

Indeed! Just what is the West Wing trying to hide, Mr. President?

‘Occupy’ Jon Corzine?

By John W. Lillpop

Jon Corzine is one of the more contemptible weasels who earns a living by practicing financial malfeasance on a grand scale. So contemptible is he that deserves his own “Occupy” movement—Occupy Jon Corzine has a nice ring to it, no?

This wrong-minded Democrat, a huge supporter of Barack Obama, has been an equal opportunity destroyer in both government and the private sector in recent times.

As Governor of New Jersey, Corzine drove that state into financial ruin until voters elected Republican Chris Christie to clean-up the tax and spend mess drenched in the DNA of Jon Corzine.

Then it was back to the private sector and a stint as CEO and Chairman of MF Global Holdings.

Before much time passed, Corzine’s failure skills surfaced again, leading MF to bankruptcy as reported at reference 1 in part:

Jon Corzine has resigned as MF Global Holdings chief executive officer and chairman, the brokerage firm said Friday.

The former New Jersey governor and Goldman Sachs chief confirmed he will not seek severance pay in connection with his resignation from the bank, which filed for bankruptcy protection on Monday.

In the press release, Corzine said: “I have voluntarily offered my resignation to the board of directors of MF Global. This was a difficult decision, but one that I believe is best for the firm and its stakeholders.

“I feel great sadness for what has transpired at MF Global and the impact it has had on the firm’s clients, employees and many others, " he said in the statement. “I intend to continue to assist the company and its board in their efforts to respond to regulatory inquiries and issues related to the disposition of the firm’s assets.”
Reports circulated earlier had the fallen Corzine in line for a $12 million dollar bonus as a part of his severance. Apparently, common sense descended on the parties and the latest report has Corzine leaving without severance pay, which is more than he deserves given the fact that handcuffs and jail could have been applied.

Corzine’s heart-warming assurance that “I intend to continue to assist the company and its board in their efforts to respond to regulatory inquiries and issues related to the disposition of the firm’s assets,” should be viewed by as a direct threat to MF and its associates by an obviously disgruntled former employee.

So with MF vanquished, what is next for the bearded failure? A big role in the reelection campaign for Barack Obama perhaps?

In the interest of assuring that Obama is sent into permanent retirement on January 20, 2013, one can only hope and pray that Jon Corzine plays a huge role in the 2012 campaign!



Port of Oakland Occupied by Violent Vagrants, Thanks to Moon Bat Mayor!

By John W. Lillpop

Are you skeptical of those who claim that liberalism is a mental disorder?

If so, it is imperative that you aquatint yourself with the works and wonders of Mayor Jean Quan, the left-wing extremist who is in charge of doings in Oakland, California.

Mayor Quan, apparently cursed with the most vile stream of the insanity virus, rolled up her sleeves and went to work on the ‘Occupy Oakland’ quagmire which has gripped her town, an unlovely mess even before the invasion by thousands of malcontent vagrants and bums looking for a government bail out to rescue themselves from years of misspent youth mired in alcohol and drug abuse, made all the worse by genetic stupidity.

Unfortunately, Mayor Quan’s liberal disease is in the advanced stages which means that the lady should probably not be allowed to walk on Oakland’s chaotic streets, much less run the damn town.

As reported at the reference, Mayor Quan just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time: Meaning, she was in her office at City Hall when the Occupy Mania came calling:

The liberal Tea Party had been staging a “general strike” all day, after the craven Mayor Jean Quan literally surrendered the city to them, going so far as to advise local businesses to “leave the cash drawer open and empty” after business hours, so the wealth redistribution experts marching through the streets could easily see that they didn’t have any money to steal.

Quan also gave all city employees the day off, so they could join the protests… except for the city police. As the Blaze reports, this was very confusing to the city police, who found themselves wondering if the Mayor wanted city employees on both sides of the picket line. They wrote Quan to ask if she could clear a few things up, such as who was actually running Oakland these days:

On Tuesday, October 25th, we were ordered by Mayor Quan to clear out the encampments at Frank Ogawa Plaza and to keep protesters out of the Plaza. We performed the job that the Mayor’s Administration asked us to do, being fully aware that past protests in Oakland have resulted in rioting, violence and destruction of property.

Then, on Wednesday, October 26th, the Mayor allowed protesters back in – to camp out at the very place they were evacuated from the day before.

To add to the confusion, the Administration issued a memo on Friday, October 28th to all City workers in support of the “Stop Work” strike scheduled for Wednesday, giving all employees, except for police officers, permission to take the day off.

That’s hundreds of City workers encouraged to take off work to participate in the protest against “the establishment.” But aren’t the Mayor and her Administration part of the establishment they are paying City employees to protest? Is it the City’s intention to have City employees on both sides of a skirmish line?

It is all very confusing to us.”

The police are probably a little cranky about the way they were used as scapegoats for the violence displayed by Occupy Oakland during the last riot it started, which ended with a man nursing a head injury in the hospital. Hopefully the Mayor kept her eyes open during the next riot, which happened last night, when the Occupiers marched on the port and shut it down.”

There you go, another left-wing moon bat who surrenders to evil and stabs the police in the back.

Mayor Jean Quan--she may be crazy enough to run for national office as a Democrat!



Time to "Occupy" Mexico?

By Lillpop

Given the fact that Mexico has, in effect, declared war on our sovereign nation by sponsoring the invasion of America by as many as 12-38 million uneducated peasants from Mexico, is it not time for the United States to respond?

And with vigor?

For example. Congress should formally declare war on Mexico, effective immediately.

President Obama should be ordered to use whatever military force might be needed to wrest control of Mexico from Felipe Calderon and other Mexican elitists whose only solution to domestic problems is to dump those problems on the U.S. side of the border.

Once the U.S. military has firm control of the nation, a task that should take about four hours, tops, Mexico's oil production fields and facilities should be seized.

All oil proceeds should be sent to the U.S. treasury as partial compensation for the hundreds of billions of American taxpayer dollars wasted by giving public services to illegal aliens.

Other actions that must be undertaken immediately:

*All foreign aid to Mexico should be cut off;

*An interim government should be established under the management of Tom Tancredo who should serve as the acting president of Mexico, pending further action by the U.S.

*Tancredo's administration should include Jeff Sessions of Alabama, Duncan Hunter of California, Frosty Woodbridge, John W. Lillpop and other reasonable conservatives who understand illegal aliens.

*Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio should replace Janet Napolitano as the head of Homeland Security. Arpaio's only priority should be to locate and deport every illegal alien in America, using whatever military and domestic police resources he might need.

*The Tancredo administration should re-write the Mexican constitution and make it a capitol offense for any person in Mexico to cross America's borders illegally. English should be the official language of Mexico.

*Michelle Obama should be appointed Director of FDA in Mexico. She should immediately ban the production, sale, export, and consumption of tostadas, burritos, and all other Mexican food because of fat, carbohydrates, sodium and other deadly ingredients.

Once law and order have been established in Mexico, Tancredo and his colleagues should return to America and fix the mess here as well!
