America Still Haunted by Legacy of GW Bush!





By John W. Lillpop

President George W. Bush, 43rd president and second worst in US history, continues to impact life in America in a most distressing manner.

Bush,  the most liberal “conservative” to ever serve, is linked inexorably to both decisions rendered by the SCOTUS this week.

With respect to illegal immigration and the SCOTUS ruling on SB 1070, Arizona’s common sense law for dealing with invaders, Bush 43 was an advocate for illegal aliens and, thus, an opponent of American sovereignty and culture.

Bush set the precedent for inaction and irresponsibility, a precedent that Barack Obama has cheerfully adopted and made even worse with extreme abuses of power and racial pandering to Hispanics.

If Bush had been a real conservative and dedicated patriot, he would have sealed the US-Mexico border on September 12, 2001 following the 911 attacks by Al-Quaeda. He would have kept the borders closed and would have ordered that the 12-30 million invaders living in the US be rounded up, one by one, and kicked back across the border.

If Bush had been in possession of even a hint of common sense, he would have ordered an immediate end to foreign aid to Mexico, and would have demanded that the banditos running that third-world cesspool keep their uneducated, unskilled peasants out of America, or risk war.

Indeed, the invasion of America by illegals should be seen as an act of war, not as a voter recruitment opportunity as seen by the absolute worst president in US history, the very forgettable, Barack Obama.

Unfortunately for America, Bush did nothing to defend the borders or enforce the law. As a result, America has become a dumping ground for corrupt Mexican leaders looking to offload their problems for American taxpayers to handle.

Then there is the matter of ObamaCare, the Marxist take-over of 1/6th of the American economy.

ObamaCare survived a Supreme Court test because Chief Associate John Roberts voted with the liberals on the court and said to hell with America!

Before yesterday, the appointment of John Roberts to SCOTUS seemed to be one of the bright spots on Bush’s otherwise wretched record of disservice to we the people.

Alas, John Roberts turned turncoat on America by voting with the confirmed lefties on the bench, unleashing ObamaCare on an innocent nation.

Once again, the legacy of GW Bush torpedoes the good people of this great nation.

May the likes of GW Bush NEVER again occupy the White House!

Did SCOTUS Just Resurrect the Messiah?


By John W. Lillpop

This was supposed to be the worst week in the presidency, thus far, of Barack Obama. The president was, according to punditry, going to be walloped by SCOTUS on two critical decisions—Arizona immigration law and ObamaCare.

On top of dreadful economic news and dire projections for the months before the November elections, a double defeat in the high court would seal the deal against this president who was supposed to be an expert in Constitutional law.

Today was Judgement Day for Obama and his Marxist policies when the world expected ObamaCare to be dumped into the trash heap.

Unfortunately for conservatives and America, Obama won a partial victory against the Arizona immigration law and a HUGE victory on ObamaCare. Particularly with ObamaCare, the president scored a major upset win that could provide a big boost to his reelection odds.

Tonight the big question is: Did SCOTUS resurrect the Messiah status of Barack Obama?

Even more distressing: Moon Bat Nancy Pelosi was proven right as she predicted that ObamaCare would be upheld 6-3.

God help us if the nation is becoming in agreement with Obama and Pelosi!

How to Say, “Fork Obama!” Without Being Arrested?







By John W. Lillpop



In his hyper-egotistical, narcissistic mind, President Obama assumes that he has a strangle- hold on the Latino vote, both legal and otherwise.

However, the Secret Service, those sterling folks charged with protecting the President from harm, are apparently not quite so sure.

As reported at the reference, in part, Latinos gathered for a speech by The One in Florida were not allowed to keep their forks, and knives were missing altogether before Obama took the stage:


“Just a few days after announcing that his administration would no longer deport about 800,000 young illegal immigrants, you would think that President Obama would be received as something of a hero by NALEO, the National Association of Latino Elected Officials, before whom Obama is giving a speech this afternoon in Orlando.

But the Secret Service wasn't taking any chances. As hundreds of Latino elected officials were enjoying their lunch at Disney's Contemporary Resort earlier today, it was announced that forks would be collected before Obama took the stage. It was also mentioned that knives, too, were entirely absent from the lunch for "a reason."

Hmmm.

No forks, no knives allowed.  Even in the hands of one of Obama’s strongest and most loyal constituents, no less?

Might this be an ominious sign for Obama’s reelection prospects, or it simply an isolated example of over reaction by the Secret Service, on a mission to redeem the Service after their witch-hunt fiasco in Coluimbia?

Thus, the query, How does one say, “Fork Obama!” in Spanish?

Nancy Pelosi: Mind-Numbingly Stupid? Whom Would Have Imagined?


                                                           Mind-Numbingly Stupid?



 


By John W. Lillpop

Although liberals love to ridicule and make fun of Sarah Palin, there is a witch in their midst whom makes Governor Palin appear absolutely brilliant by comparison.

That would be the wacky nut ball from San Francisco, the One and Only(thank God!) Nancy Pelosi.

Yes, the former Shrieker of the US House whose collection of idiotic public pronouncements include:


 Fathers of the Catholic Church have no official position on abortion;


 Congress was compelled to pass the Marxist health care scheme know as ObamaCare so that we could find out what was in the damn thing;


 Enforcing U.S. immigration laws is “un-American.”

Pelosi’s troubled mind reached a new low recently when she accused House Republicans of railing against Attorney General Eric Holder in order to thwart Holder’s efforts to defeat voter suppression.

According to the loosely-wrapped Granny-Nanny from Frisco, getting to the bottom of the Fast and Furious scandal, which cost a Border Patrol agent his life, is but a front used by Darrell Issa and House Republicans as a cover for nailing Holder before he does even more damage to key Democrat constituencies including illegal aliens, felons, and the dead.

Pelosi’s latest mental lapse led Representative Trey Gowdy (R-SC) to question the Former Speaker’s intelligence as reported, in part, at the reference:
A South Carolina Republican is calling House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s assertion that the GOP’s investigation into Fast and Furious was linked to voter suppression “mind-numbingly stupid.”


“It’s really beneath the office of a member of Congress to say something that outrageous, and the fact that she was once the speaker is mind numbing,” Rep. Trey Gowdy said on “On The Record with Greta van Susteren” on Thursday night. “Honestly, I have heard a lot in my 16 years as a prosecutor. I couldn’t believe the words coming out of her mouth.”

Mind-numbingly stupid, Representative? So what else is new?

Romney's VEEP Selection Must Be "Shovel Ready" for Oval Office Call!

By John W. Lillpop


Senator Marco Rubio(R-Florida) is a formidable candidate in the race to be Mitt Romney’s running mate in November.

The Senator has much going for him: He is young, attractive, well- spoken, intelligent, instantly likeable, and literally oozing charisma.

For those whom have not been paying attention, young and charismatic are adjectives which do not immediately come to mind when one thinks about Mitt Romney.

Romney, a fine and decent man by all accounts, may be one of the dullest figures to ever vie for the presidency.

In addition to his attractive physical appearance and energy, Rubio is Hispanic, a large ethnic demographic that the Republican Party covets dearly.

Which is the case because the GOP generally polls poorly in the Hispanic community, owing at least partially to the party rigidity on rule of law, border security, and other immigration policies which some Hispanics consider anti-Hispanic and, perhaps, even racist, especially when coached to believe so by Democrats.

Bottom line: Installing a Hispanic like Rubio on the national ticket might help mitigate some of the misgivings about the GOP among Latinos and could be instrumental in electing Mitt Romney as the 45th President of the US.

Very tempting, indeed.

However, given the past years under President Obama, Romney would be well advised to think hard before using race as the determinative factor.

After all, in 2008, Democrats fell in love with Barack Hussein Obama, mostly because of his race and liberal extremism.

Accolades for Obama included “clean and articulate” and no discernable “Negro dialect;” important considerations to Democrat leaders like Joe Biden and Harry Reid.

Unfortunately for the Democrat Party, and America, Barack Obama came to power with a paucity of executive experience, very limited knowledge about economics, foreign policy and other important issues.

Obama’s juvenile naivete was, and is, aggravated by a world-class arrogance and anti-American bias that makes effective governance impossible.

As we now know, “clean and articulate” are not nearly enough!

With respect to Marco Rubio, the young senator does not appear to be encumbered with the arrogance or lack of love for America that makes Obama such a pointed failure.

Still, Rubio does NOT bring a dossier of significant experience and accomplishments to the fray.

Much like Obama, Rubio is particularly attractive because of his race and style.

Of course Mitt Romney is an intelligent man whom understands what it takes to succeed. Surely Romney will look beyond the glitter and glamour of the young Hispanic Turk in answering these questions:

 Does Rubio have the requisite experience and maturity to take over as president should (God forbid) something untoward afflict President Romney?

 Can Rubio gain the respect (fear!) of world leaders like Vladimir Putin, and renegade nations like Iran, North Korea, and Syria?


 Does Rubio possess the patriotic fervor and judgment needed to advocate on behalf of American interests without apologizing for US policies and leaders?


After all, as we learned over the past four years, getting elected is the easy part! Governing, on the other hand, requires skill, intelligence, and love of country.

Mitt Romney must be wary of selecting his VEEP based on race!



Please, Do NOT repeat the awful mistake that Democrats made, ala Barack Obama!

Eric, the Contemptible, Has Rocky Juneteenth!


By John W. Lillpop


Eric Holder, President Obama’s controversial and divisive Attorney General and top cop, finds himself in no mood to celebrate Juneteenth this evening.

In fact, the AG probably feels an urgent need for emancipation from the Republican-controlled House of Representatives after doings on Capitol Hill this day.

As reported at the reference, the befuddled Holder was smacked down for his arrogant defiance of the Congress:
A House panel voted Wednesday to place Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for his failure to comply with a subpoena, defying an assertion of executive privilege from President Obama.

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, led by Republican Chairman Darrell Issa (Calif.), approved a resolution along party lines to place Holder in contempt after battling him for months over access to internal agency documents about the gun-tracking operation Fast and Furious. The resolution to place Holder in contempt will now move to the House floor.”

Finally!, an Obama thug is exposed to the taste of justice!  

God Bless Darrell Issa, the rule of law, and, above all else, God Bless America!

Where Are the Jobs, Mr. President?





By John W. Lillpop


President Obama, ever mindful of the “It’s the Economy, Stupid!” political truth, decided that Eric Holder, although a dear friend, was expendable in the name of continuing Obama’s Hope and Change farce for another four years.

Which is why Obama refused to hand over documents requested by Congressional Republicans investigating Fast and Furious, Obama’s stealth assault on the 2nd Amendment gone terribly wrong.
By evoking Executive Privilege, Obama almost guaranteed that Eric Holder will be held in Contempt of Congress.

Naturally, the president feels deep sorrow for his devoted ally and top cop.

Still, there are advantages to Holder's demise, most of which involve manipulating media coverage.

With Holder’s angry mug hogging headlines everywhere, little or no space is left for the dreary statistics and awful doom and gloom stories about jobs and the economy-- issues which highlight Obama’s incompetence and impotence.

So what if a fellow black is forced under the bus for a few months? If Obama succeeds in winning reelection, Holder can be scraped off the bottom of the bus and reinstated to a role that will best serve the needs of BHO.

And that, after all, is ALL that really matters, right?

Objective journalists need to realize that they are being duped, by continuing to ask, “Where are the jobs, Mr. President?”

Top 10 “Right Things To Do,” from a Conservative Perspective







By John W. Lillpop

Not so very long ago, America was a nation of laws, operated by a government that promoted civility and allowed our blessed country to produce the most successful and prosperous society in human history.

Unfortunately, the era of Barack Obama has seen the deterioration of American values and culture. Today, governance is accomplished by shallow, narcissistic, bureaucratic, progressives who do not respect the rule of law, Congress, or the even US Constitution.

Rather than solid fundamentals, modern-day, Obama liberal elitists govern by the seat of their pants based on vague, naive notions such as a perceived “Right thing to do.”

That phrase was how Obama recently justified his outrageous hijacking of established immigration laws.

But what would happen if the next Republican president (January, 2013, pray God!) mimics Obama and governs according to a partisan agenda rather than according to the Constitution?

Should that happen, President Romney could be expected to announce the following changes which would be enacted via an Executive Order without Congressional consultation or approval.


The Top Ten “Right Things to Do” from a conservative perspective might be as follows:

 Roe V. Wade is no longer enforced as the law of the land. Rather, abortion is considered murder, and both the woman & killing doctor are guilty of capital crimes;

 America’s membership in the United Nations is terminated, and no taxpayer money may be spent in support thereof;


 State and local laws that limit or impede 2nd Amendment gun rights are null and void—and unenforceable;


 The size and scope of the federal government is to reduced by eliminating the EPA, IRS, and Department of Education;


 Marriage is (only) between one man and one woman;


 Affirmative action, set aside and other programs which discriminate against Caucasians, and or men, are unlawful and will not be enforced;


 100,000 armed US troops will be stationed at the US-Mexico border to keep unwanted, foreign invaders out;

 English is the official, and ONLY, language used in speech or written form in America;

 All federal budgets must be balanced, and the national debt ceiling can never be raised without approval by two-thirds of the US House and Senate.


How might the liberal media and Obama elitists regard the conservative “Right Thing To Do” list?

Barack Obama: Ignoring Constitution, Congress, & Rule of Law “Right Thing To Do”








By John W. Lillpop

Barack Obama’s wretched abuse of the American people and Democratic process took another ugly turn for the worse on Friday, when our clueless president unilaterally decided to grant amnesty to approximately one million illegal aliens, invaders whom should be on trains, planes, automobiles, boats, foot, and moats, en route to points south of our border, rather than feted as possible swing voters.

Obama added to the absurdity of the moment by announcing that invaders would be granted immunity from deportation AND issued work permits.

Work permits for illegal aliens in an economy that appears destined for a double-dip recession and where 23 million Americans are already unemployed or unemployed?

Typical Obama.

Instead of working 24/7 to alter his mindless, job-killing rhetoric and policies in a way that will encourage businesses to add jobs, this dull knife in a dark suit is, once again, stabbing American citizens in the back so as to placate Hispanic voters, legal and otherwise, in time for the November election.

Even worse: Obama and Janet Napolitano, alleged Secretary of Homeland Security, have justified their idiotic political malfeasance as the “right thing to do.”

The “right thing to do”?

Other than benefiting illegal aliens, Mexico, and the Obama reelection fraud, how can such a vile act be considered anything more than Marxist Anarchy, waged for raw, corrupt political power?

Erick Holder’s Curious Decision-Making Apparatus





By John W. Lillpop


When Eric Holder first became aware of the eligibility issues polluting Florida’s voter rolls, one would have expected the Attorney General to call for immediate action to get to the bottom of the mess.

As Barack Obama’s top cop, Holder would have been expected to initiate an exhaustive investigation into voting practices that would allow illegal aliens and dead people to be listed as eligible. He would have also been expected to demand that ineligible folks be deleted from the rolls as soon as possible.

Given the extreme closeness forecast for the November election, Holder could not have be faulted for dispatching a paramilitary team of experts to protect and defend the integrity of the election in the Sunshine state.

After all, nothing is more important than the integrity of the vote, right Attorney General?  The essence of our form of self-governance is based on the fairness and integrity of the system that registers, conducts, and tallies the will of the people as expressed in the privacy of the voting booth.

Unfortunately, Eric Holder’s first (and only) action to date in this embarrassing fiasco has been to castigate Florida state officials for purging the voters’ registryof ineligible persons!

The clueless Holder even sued Florida to stop the purging.

For those whom are not paying attention, there is a huge national election scheduled for November 6. President Obama’s future and that of our very nation are at stake.

Thinking ahead somewhat, no doubt the Obama Administration was alarmed at the number of illegal aliens that Florida planned to purge.

After all, there is the sizeable Hispanic vote to consider and, since the overwhelming majority of illegal aliens are Hispanic, it might be seen as discriminatory, or even racist, to deny any Hispanic the right to vote, over a minor technicality such as eligibility.

Right, Attorney General?

Some may quibble over the notion that eligibility is a “minor technicality” when it comes to our Democracy.

But consider this: The Democrat Party, in cahoots with the mainstream media, have delivered unto us The One --Barack Hussein Obama -- who may himself be ineligible to serve as president!

Remember, the word “vetting” was never even considered when Obama’s presidential aspirations became known.

He was qualified by virtue of his race (black), his ideology(Radical leftist), and his party affiliation (Democrat).

Besides, Barack Obama was, according to Joe Biden, “clean and articulate,” and unburdened by a “Negro dialect, “ a fact pointed out by Harry Reid, Democrat leader of the Senate.

Wow! A black, Marxist, Democrat who sounds white and is clean and articulate!

With those facts going for him, Obama was a shoo-in and God-send for Democrats.

Four years later, Democrats are paying dearly for their foolish sloppiness in 2008.

The big question facing America now: Can, and will, the American people atone for their grievous error in 2008 by terminating the service of Barack Obama and his incompetent, corrupt administration, including the likes of Eric Holder?

Pray that the answer is yes. Pray HARD!

Too Busy to Help in Wisconsin, Obama Finds Time for Fund Raisers, Golf!


By John W. Lillpop


Pity poor President Obama!

Given his utter reliance on labor union money and votes, you have to know that he was burning at the bit to visit Wisconsin to campaign on behalf of Tom Barrett against Republican Governor Scott Walker and his union-busting gang of thugs.

Alas, it turns out the President was just too damn busy transforming America to squeeze in Mr. Barrett and the Democrat Party.

As reported, in part, at the reference, Obama blamed his non-appearance on the heavy load of responsibilities on his plate; most of which was inherited from former President George W. Bush:



“When asked about his absence in Wisconsin where Barrett lost to Gov. Scott Walker last week, Obama said that he has “ a lot of responsibilities.” The Washington Post headline was: “Obama says he was too busy to campaign in Wisconsin recall election.”

Hmmm.

Too busy for Tom Barrett, Mr. President?

As also reported at the reference, while Obama could not squeeze in even a short visit to Wisconsin, he found no problem making time for plenty of fund raisers and golf:



President Obama, who Monday suggested he was too busy to campaign for losing Wisconsin gubernatorial candidate Tom Barrett, spent a third of the 66-day special election period on the golf course and raising reelection money or campaigning in all four states that border Wisconsin, according to a review of his schedule.


In the 66 days between when Barrett, Milwaukee’s mayor, decided on March 30 to challenge Walker and the June 5th election, Obama travelled heavily to attend official and political events. CBS White House reporter Mark Knoller, who keeps the best diary of presidential activity, tweeted that “during the two months before the Wisconsin vote, Pres Obama made 15 trips to 14 states - but steered clear of Wisconsin.”

Knoller also said that the president played seven rounds of golf during the period. He also attended 39 fundraisers in 11 states. In total, Obama golfed and raised money on 22 days, exactly a third of the 66-day election. He also went on two foreign trips and made two visits to Camp David, one for a NATO summit.

What’s more, his fundraising tour took him to Minnesota, Illinois and Michigan, three of the four states that border Wisconsin. As for the fourth the state, Iowa, he made three campaign stops on May 24.”

Still, Obama provided an invaluable “teaching moment” for Democrats running for office, labor union members, and liberals in general. The message:

This President will go anywhere, at any time, to do what is right for America. Which, in 2012, is defined as reelecting Barack Hussein Obama! No exceptions will be entertained!

Unemployment at 8.2 % (and Rising!) Is FINE, Mr. President?

By John W. Lillpop


While pushing Congress to pass the $831 billion stimulus package in 2009, President Obama promised that millions of jobs would be created, and or saved, and that the nation’s unemployment rate would fall to less than 8.0 %.

Three years on, there are 23 million unemployed, or under employed, Americans, the unemployment rate is 8.2%.

Final GDP numbers for 2011 show a not-too-sterling growth rate of 1.7%.

Meanwhile, the federal deficit has exploded and is on track to hit $16 trillion, and another increase in the deficit ceiling will soon be necessary. America’s credit rating was downgraded in 2011.

In spite of all of this dreary economic news, President Obama actually claimed that the economy is doing “fine,” at least in the private sector.  He is also pushing for another stimilus.

Given the results from the first stimulus, why would any responsible Congress critter give this president even more American treasure to waste?

RIP, ObamaMania: “Obama Girl” No Longer Excited by The One!



                                                         The Thrill Is Gone!!



By John W. Lillpop

The science is in, and the proof is irrefutable: ObamaMania is dead, owing to four years of exposure to The One, and a sudden surge in common sense and intelligence among the unwashed!

As reported, in part, at the reference:

Amber Lee Ettinger, widely known as “Obama Girl” during the 2008 presidential campaign, told The Daily Caller she is “not as excited as I was the last time, that’s for sure.”

The model-actress became a nationally known celebrity after starring in the viral YouTube video “Crush on Obama.”

See video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wKsoXHYICqU&feature=player_embedded


“Barack Obama was definitely the first ‘Internet President,’” she said, describing her experiences during the last cycle as “quite a roller coaster ride.”

This time, however, Ettinger won’t say if she still supports Obama.

“At this point I’m keeping that to myself,” she told TheDC. “If I’m not making videos, I’m not sure it’s anyone’s business who I’m voting for this time around.”

“I think in the next few months it’s going to be very interesting to see what happens,” Ettinger said. ”I’d like to get out there and see what the young voters think about both candidates… I might need to break out my flip cam and take a road trip.”

Outside of the realm of politics, the one-time “Obama girl” is ”going back to school full time, acting and developing [her] jewelry line.”

Combating rumors that she didn’t vote in the 2008 election, Ettinger told TheDC that she did indeed vote, in Pennsylvania.”
Ettinger’s story is good news and a hopeful sign for those who want America back, pre-Barack Obama!

Obama Laments Shrinking Size of Government!





By John W. Lillpop

While the nation scratches its collective head in bewilderment at President Obama’s latest faux pas—“The private sector is fine”—his hand-wringing over the loss of jobs in state and local governments is even more puzzling.

Consider that Tuesday last was a particularly brutal day for labor unions, those greedy predators whom coerce on behalf of public service employees by feasting on the carcasses of, until now, unsuspecting, citizenry.

From Wisconsin, where Governor Scott Walker rode a wave of voter disgust at the selfish refusal of public service employees to even consider “fairness” in their outlandish salary and benefit demands, to the sunny climes of San Diego and San Jose California where locals trimmed back the grossly unfair pension arrangements of public service retirees, the message sent was loud and clear:

Excessive pension and wage demands will no longer be allowed to bankrupt American states, cities and municipalities!”

In other words, labor unions BEWARE: You too, have a responsibility for preserving the American dream, and we intend see to it that you accept your fair share of the economic pain that has devastated America!

Given that hostile environment and, the fact that 23 million Americans out of work or underemployed, why would the “smartest man in the world” say this? 

“The private sector is doing fine,” Obama said at a press conference on Friday. “Where we’re seeing weaknesses in our economy, have to do with state and local government -- oftentimes, cuts initiated by governors or mayors who are not getting the kind of help that they have in the past from the federal government and who don’t have the same kind of flexibility as the federal government in dealing with fewer revenues coming in.”

A shortfall of government employees is to blame, Mr. President?


But what about Greece, Spain, and the European mess?

What about the earthquake-tsunami disaster in Japan?

What about the Arab Spring?

What about the warm US winter?

What about the refusal of the Republican-controlled US House to spend even more hundreds of billions of American money on another stimulus that will edge the nation even closer to a further downgrade of the US credit rating?

Above all else, Mr. President, what about the lingering effects of George W. Bush?

Falling Gasoline Prices-- Another Obama Failure?





By John W. Lillpop

Most presidents running for reelection would be wildly ecstatic over news that gasoline prices were falling sharply, just months before election day.

Most, that is.

However, America is stuck in the Obama era, where up is down, in is out, and right is wrong.

Under the Obama madness, falling gasoline prices are a bad economic indicator because lower prices will inevitably lead to increased consumption, which, according to those afflicted with the Obamamite mentality, is worse than sky-high prices, because consumption will further pollute the environment and despoil all that is good and wonderful on this planet.

\And since liberals do not believe that there is a higher power (God) to watch over the landscape, the forces of doom and gloom (White Republicans) essentially have a free hand to pulverize and pummel good people with impunity.

Which is why, as Americans learned early in 2012, the Secretary of the U.S. Energy Department, an amicable chap by the name of Dr. Steven Chu, an elitist lefty who does not even own an automobile, is on record as saying that it is the objective of the US government to push gas prices as high as possible.

Get that?

Whilst middle-class Americans are driven to distraction by spiking prices at the pump, the President of the U.S. and fellows like Dr. Chu go to work every day with an eye to doing whatever they can to get gas to $7 or $8 a gallon, or more!

And they have the unmitigated gall to call themselves “Public servants”?

Despite the best efforts of Barack Obama and Dr. Chu, there IS good news for the common man and woman: Namely, gasoline prices are in sharp decline and there may be a glut of the stuff.

All of which means that when it comes to energy, Obama’s signature incompetence which has devastated the US economy, our military readiness, our sovereignty, social values, religious freedom, and nearly every other aspect of American life, has finally spilled over to gas prices!

Obama is so inept that his attempts to solve any problem inevitably leads to the exact opposite.

The fall of gasoline prices: The law of supply and demand or simply another Obama failure??


Time to Scratch Obama’s “I’ll Have Another” Fantasy?





By John W. Lillpop


From the world of Sports, Triple Crown aspirant “I’ll Have Another” has provided President Barack Obama with an excellent “Teaching Opportunity” for pursuing the 2012 election, just five months away.

As reported at the reference, the superstar horse was scratched from the scheduled Belmont Stakes this afternoon, thereby losing the chance for conquering the Triple Crown this year:


Horse racing was dealt a devastating blow on Friday morning.

Trainer Doug O'Neill confirmed that his horse, I'll Have Another, won't run in the Belmont Stakes on Saturday afternoon.

O'Neill cited injury as the reason the horse won't run in the race.

I'll Have Another was looking to win the first Triple Crown since Affirmed took home all three of horse racing's biggest races in 1978.”
Obama could use some horse sense of his own in facing the barrage of criticism coming from fellow partisans Bill Clinton, Larry Summers, Diane Feinstein, and other leading Democrats, whom have taken exception to Obama’s na├»ve criticism of Bain Capital, his refusal to push for an extension of the Bush tax cuts, and his role in dangerous leaks of national security secrets to media.


The big question: Is Barack Obama man enough to admit that the time has come to scratch his “I’ll Have Another” bid for the White House?

“What more do we want Obama to do for us”? The Top Ten!




By John W. Lillpop

Alleged funnyman David Letterman got off his best line of the year when he recently asked this about Barack Obama:    “What more do we want this man to do for us?"

LOL, Dave!

Herewith, The Top Ten Things that Obama can do for America and our Democracy NOW:

10: Stop Apologizing to foreign world leaders for past American administrations and policies—instead, admit Obama’s own wrong minded agenda and failures, and apologize to the American people!

9: Stop ignoring the Rule of Law with respect to America’s borders and immigration laws. Stop suing states like Arizona and Alabama for protecting their citizens from foreign invaders!

8: Stop trying to replace free-market capitalism with European-style socialism;

7: Stop the ongoing cover-up in “Fast and Furious” and other scandals involving Eric Holder and the DOJ;

6: Stop ignoring the US Constitution and the War Powers Act in actions involving war. Obama’s actions in the recent war in Libya are more impeachable offenses.

5: Stop using the tax code as a Marxist tool to “redistribute” American wealth to favored constituents, thereby further dividing Americans on the basis of class;

4: Stop purging the military defenses of America;

3: Stop ignoring exploding deficits and the administration’s addiction to deficit spending. Face unsustainable entitlements in an honest and forthright manner, and implement responsible reform;

2: Stop the assaults on constitutionally-guaranteed freedom of religion, as evidenced by recent demands which would force the Catholic Church to cover certain procedures which violate fundamental tenets of Catholicism;

And the #1 “More” that Obama Must Do For We the People:


1: Stop leaking sensitive national security information to the New York Times and other media in order to make the president appear to be a tough, decisive Commander-in-Chief. Such leaks unnecessarily endanger innocent American lives and, as such, are impeachable offenses.

There you go—ten reasonable steps that Obama must take for the benefit of the American people!

NOW!

Are Americans Living Too Long to Suit Liberals?



By John W. Lillpop

By any reasonably objective standard, the quality of health care available in America is unequaled anywhere on the planet.

Why, then, are socialists like Barack Obama so desperate to replace the best with the least, that being socialized medicine?  How does that serve the American people?

Perhaps it is the high quality of care itself that has the left in a tizzy for CHANGE?

Think about it: Private enterprise and free markets have produced mind-boggling technological advances and new medicines that routinely extend the lives and quality of life for millions of elderly Americans.

Life expectancies have soared and continue to grow, when allowed to prosper in a free market environment.

That may be the problem from the perspective of left wing ideologues.

After all, liberals do not regard human life as anything special, except when it comes to convicted killers whom must be spared every discomfort and pain, regardless of how heinous their crimes.

Liberals see nothing wrong with slaughtering 50 million innocent lives (since the Roe V. Wade ruling) in order to preserve a woman's inalienable right to murder unborn life.

Starving a helpless victim like Terry Schaivo to death is seen as an act of mercy and completely acceptable to the left.

Again, most human life has no intrinsic value to left-wing extremists.

Thus, a medical system that extends the lives of those whose tax-paying days have ended simply makes no sense to the typical liberal.

In fact, to the liberal mind, extending the lives of elderly people is economic suicide because the Social Security ponzi scheme was not designed to accommodate millions of Americans living into their mid -70s or 80s.

According to liberal nut balls, elderly people whose tax paying years have passed, but whom receive Social Security and Medicare benefits, should be covered under single-payer socialized medicine of the type that will thin out their numbers by offering inferior services, long delays, and other problems common in nations like Canada and Great Britain.

Medical care denied to the aging can thus be conferred on younger workers who will be around to tax, tax, and tax for years on end, and to illegal aliens whom Democrats can pander to while trolling for Hispanic votes.

The problems with America's health care have nothing to do with the professionalism or quality of care.

Rather, it has everything to do with providing services and care in accordance with the political objectives of the left.

Now, THAT is sick!

Governor Walker’s Powerful Message to America: Austerity Works!





By John W. Lillpop



Governor Scott Walker’s defeat of the hideous recall vendetta against him is far more than just a victory for Wisconsin and conservative Republicans.

Indeed, the Governor’s triumph sent messages rich in hope and inspiration to politicians all across the nation.
His example will be invaluable to other governors and legislators seeking solutions to the fiscal Armageddon wrought by ObamaMania.

Walker proved that austerity does work, provided that political leaders have the cajoles to face reality, make the tough choices, and endure, despite intense pressure from greedy labor unions and reckless Democrats.

Of course, Walker’s controversial reforms have riled big labor and Democrats; however, results are all that really count when it comes to surviving a depression.

And Walker’s results have been a rousing success.

By making the tough, unpopular choices, the Governor has turned a brutal budget deficit into a modest surplus. His policies have added tens of thousands of jobs to Wisconsin. He even managed a modest tax cut in the midst of his reforms!

In other words, Governor Walker applied a conservative formula to Wisconsin’s fiscal woes—and, as advertised, it worked famously!

In comparison, President Obama wasted almost a trillion stimulus dollars and nearly four years in a futile effort to spend America out of fiscal hell, only to see the crisis worsen as a result of his denial-riddled thinking.

Walker followed a staunch conservative path, thereby producing desperately-needed economic relief for the people he serves.

Governor Scott Walker is a newly-minted hero. He has provided a template for success that could actually save America, if used by political leaders, including President Mitt Romney starting in 2013.

Best of all, Governor Walker set a national tone and tenor that could end Barack Obama’s disastrous career, five months hence!

Bravo, Governor Scott Walker!

Disparate Voices, Dick Morris and Maureen Dowd, Expose Unraveling of the Obama Mystique!


By John W. Lillpop

As reported in the following youtube clip, Dick Morris, political pundit and former adviser to President Clinton, believes that Bill Clinton is actually hoping that Barack Obama fails in his reelection bid.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=U5UBMg5mn4I


Meanwhile, leftist Maureen Dowd, columnist for the New York Times, appears to have experienced a close encounter with the brutal truth as concerns the 44th President.

Her spirited column, Dreaming of a Superhero, is a sure sign that Obama’s hypnotic control over the minds of the mindless left is but a memory from the past.

The entire Dowd column was is available at the reference; excerpts are provided below:



ON Friday night, the nation’s capital was under a tornado watch. And that was the best thing that happened to the White House all week.
As the president was being slapped by Mitt Romney for being too weak on national security, he was being rapped by a Times editorial for being too aggressive on national security.

A Times article by Jo Becker and Scott Shane revealed that the liberal law professor who campaigned against torture and the Iraq war now personally makes the final decisions on the “kill list,” targets for drone strikes. “A unilateral campaign of death is untenable,” the editorial asserted.

On Thursday, Bill Clinton once more telegraphed that he considers Obama a lightweight who should not have bested his wife. Bluntly contradicting the Obama campaign theme that Romney is a heartless corporate raider, Clinton told CNN that the Republican’s record at Bain was “sterling.”

Covering a humorous W. at the unveiling of his portrait, the White House press actually seemed nostalgic for the president who bollixed up Afghanistan, Iraq, Katrina and the economy — a sure sign that the Obama magic is flagging.

On Friday, an ugly job market report led to the stock market’s worst day of the year. As the recovery flat-lined, the president conceded to a crowd at a Honeywell factory in Golden Valley, Minn., that “our economy is still facing some serious headwinds” and getting sucked further into Europe’s sinkhole. In depressing imagery for the start of the summer campaign, cable channels carried the red Dow arrow pointing down while Obama spoke; the Dow wiped out all of its 2012 gains.

The president who started off with such dazzle now seems incapable of stimulating either the economy or the voters.
His campaign is offering Obama 2012 car magnets for a donation of $10; cat collars reading “I Meow for Michelle” for $12; an Obama grill spatula for $40, and discounted hoodies and T-shirts. How the mighty have fallen.

Once glowing, his press is now burning. “To a very real degree, 2008’s candidate of hope stands poised to become 2012’s candidate of fear,” John Heilemann wrote in New York magazine, noting that because Obama feels he can’t run on his record, his campaign will resort to nuking Romney.”


Dick Morris and Maureen Dowd could not be more different in their political perspectives and affiliations.

The fact that both see ominous signs for Obama is terrific news for those of us who savor a return to the good old days--the "Pre-Obama" era.

Florida to “Stand Ground” in Fight Against Voter Fraud!





By John W. Lillpop


Common sense may be making a dramatic recovery in the great state of Florida, if the state’s reaction to Eric Holder’s demand that Florida discontinue purging the voter rolls of fraud is any indication.

As indicated at the reference, in part, Florida has essentially told Eric Holder it will ignore his hideous attempt to institutionalize voter fraud:

“Florida says it will defy an order from the US justice department to stop purging its voter roll of people the state claims may not be American citizens.

The justice department has warned that the practice, which critics describe as "voter suppression" by Florida's Republican administration aimed at stripping the ballot from people more likely to support Democrats, is illegal under federal laws.

It has given the state until Wednesday to agree to halt the purge, something officials in Florida say they have no intention of doing.

Federal authorities say that the state is obliged to get justice department approval for changes to its voting laws under the 1965 Voting Rights Act, which was introduced to end practices that prevented African Americans from exercising their democratic right in many southern states.

The justice department also said that the purge appears to violate a federal law stopping voters being removed from the rolls less than 90 days before an election. Florida holds primaries in mid-August.

But Chris Cate, a spokesman for the Florida secretary of state, said the purge will continue.

"We have a year-round obligation to make sure the voter rolls are accurate. We are going to continue forward and do everything that we can legally do to make sure that ineligible voters cannot vote," he said.

The justice department move comes after the attorney general, Eric Holder, last week warned that gains of the civil rights struggle hang in the balance in the face of a determined effort by many states to roll back laws ensuring the right to vote.

He said that there is a "growing need to protect the voting rights of every eligible citizen" amid a flurry of legislation and executive orders in US states ostensibly to prevent election fraud with measures such as requiring proof of identity in order to vote.

Florida's governor, Rick Scott, has justified the purging of the voters roll as necessary to prevent fraud by people who are not American citizens.”
Kudos to Governor Scott and Chris Cate!

However, in the interest of electoral purity, one additional purge is necessary, fellows:

 Purge the name of Barack Hussein as a candidate from all ballots, effective immediately!

Let’s root out all voter fraud, even that which leads to the Oval Office!

Future Shock: Will Liberals Defend Abortion Based on “Sexual Orientation”?


By John W. Lillpop



In keeping with the long-standing tradition of “progressives” to instinctively choose death over life, the recent defeat of a measure in the US House that would have outlawed abortion based on gender came as no real surprise to anyone who has been paying the slightest bit of attention to the liberal obsession with killing the unborn.

The White House expressed President Obama’s opposition to the measure in this statement:

"The administration opposes gender discrimination in all forms, but the end result of this legislation would be to subject doctors to criminal prosecution if they fail to determine the motivations behind a very personal and private decision," White House spokeswoman Jamie Smith said in a statement.

"The government should not intrude in medical decisions or private family matters in this way."
Wow! The Obama organization is on record as actually opposing an expansion of government!

That opposition would be uplifting and inspiring were it not for the fact that abortion based on gender is such a vile violation of human rights and a practice worthy of government intervention.

Once again, the President and most Democrats are leading the way in stomping out innocent life and justifying that position with specious concerns about “personal and private” decisions.

Of course, the truth is that Democrats do not respect life as a sacred gift from our Creator.

Rather, the left sees the unborn as pawns in the political chess match that pits progressives against religious extremists, those right-wing terrorists who must not be allowed to trash women’s reproductive rights as guaranteed in the US Constitution and confirmed in Roe V. Wade in 1972.

It’s all about inalienable rights and the health of women—and the fetus be damned!

But how will the left react when medical science advances to the point where sexual orientation can be determined in a fetus?

When that technological capability becomes reality, how supportive will liberals be of expectant parents who choose, on a personal and private way, to abort a gay fetus, solely because of sexual orientation?

Just asking.

House Vote Affirms: War on Women Alive and Well

 


By John W. Lillpop

Attention: Feminists and all others concerned about an alleged "War on Women (WOW)" in the US body politic!

As reported at the reference, last week the US House rejected an attempt to outlaw abortions based on the sex of the fetus, thereby confirming that there IS indeed a war being waged against women.

However, contrary to distortions advanced by the liberal media, this particular travesty is mostly a mainstay of Democrats, not Republicans, as has been advertised.

The report, in part:

WASHINGTON — The House on Thursday fell short in an effort to ban abortions based on the sex of the fetus as Republicans and Democrats made an election-year appeal for women's votes.

The legislation would have made it a federal crime to perform or force a woman to undergo a sex-based abortion, a practice most common in some Asian countries where families wanting sons abort female fetuses.

"It is violence against women," said Rep. Chris Smith, R-N.J., of abortions of female fetuses. "This is the real war on women."

"The use of abortion for sex selection has created a 21st century holocaust for unborn girls," said Rep. John Carter, R-Round Rock.
The White House, most Democrats, abortion rights groups and some Asian American organizations opposed the bill, saying it could lead to racial profiling of Asian American women and subject doctors who don't report suspected sex-selection abortions to criminal charges.

"The administration opposes gender discrimination in all forms, but the end result of this legislation would be to subject doctors to criminal prosecution if they fail to determine the motivations behind a very personal and private decision," White House spokeswoman Jamie Smith said in a statement.

"The government should not intrude in medical decisions or private family matters in this way."

How about that for breaking news?

An instance where the Obama Administration and Congressional Democrats actually oppose conferring additional powers in the hands of the federal government?

Unfortunately, the Democrats’ position supports the ugly, immoral practice of profiling on the basis of gender, for the express purpose of extermination!

Since 99 out of 100 gender-based abortions are carried out to kill female fetuses, how can the practice be regarded as anything but an unmitigated "War on women"?

After all, regardless of how "personal and private," murder is still murder!

Further thought: Science will surely someday discover a manner for determining the sexual orientation of an unborn fetus.

When that technological capability becomes reality, how supportive will Democrats be of expectant parents who choose, on a personal and private way, to abort a gay fetus, just because of sexual orientation?

US Headed in "Right Direction," Mr. President?




 
 
By John W. Lillpop
 
 
For several months, President Obama and others in his administration have deflected criticism over the awful economy by citing credit for minor improvements in unemployment, mostly due to people leaving the employment market rather than actual progress.

The standard line has been "We are moving in the right direction," a disgusting way to refuse to accept responsibility for an economy trapped in the clutches of progressives whom simply do not understand the economy or the American people.
 
 
The Obama "Right direction" took a major hit on June 1 with release of the May jobs report.
 
 
As indicated at the reference:
 
 
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The U.S. economy suddenly looks a lot weaker.
U.S. employers created only 69,000 jobs in May, the fewest in a year, and the unemployment rate ticked up.
The dismal jobs data will fan fears that the economy is sputtering. It could also damage President Barack Obama's re-election prospects. And it could lead the Federal Reserve to take further steps to help the economy.
The Labor Department also said Friday that the economy created far fewer jobs in the previous two months than first thought. It revised those figures down to show 49,000 fewer jobs created. The unemployment rate rose to 8.2 percent from 8.1 percent in April, the first increase in 11 months.
Dow Jones industrial average futures, which were already down 100 points before the report, fell an additional 100 points within minutes of its release. "
This is "Headed in the right direction," Mr. President?
