Satire by John W Lillpop
I have never been so disillusioned, sad, bitter, and just plain “PI**ED” off as I am right now!
It is as though the Heavens have turned against America and her institutions and have decided to bring purgatory here and now, rather than waiting to send us to hell in a hand-basket in the after life.
Everything is asunder!
For instance, in modern life:
Marriage is no longer a sacred, God-ordained
institution between a man and a woman for the purpose of rearing a family. Rather, it is whatever the participants want it to be, for whatever purpose, and for however long!
Differentiating between terms “State exchanges” and “Federal exchanges” is so complex and intellectually challenging that, for the purpose of defining and implementing ObamaCare, the terms are used interchangeably and without distinction, except when John Roberts rules otherwise!
God is a homophobic sexist who needs to butt out of people’s lives!
Transforming ones genital parts to match one’s inner most desires and feelings is the ultimate surrender to the peace and tranquility of self realization and actualization, and is otherwise cool.
Jesus, if he lived at all, was not divine and probably died an inglorious death as an abandoned Jewish panhandler.
Unborn babies are to be treated like disposable diapers. That is, to be discarded at the sole will and discretion of the would-be mom, with little or no lamentation or guilt;
More time and money is expended to make law enforcement officers and policies politically correct than is spent defending innocent, law-abiding citizens against criminals.
Southern traditions and symbols cherished for 150 years are now subject to scorn and revocation. New Fact: inclusion and tolerance do NOT extend south of the Mason-Dixon line. New Fact 2: Fried chicken and grits are a major cause of erection dysfunction and probably cost the Confederacy the war!
It used to be said that “Boys will be boys,” but that now reads, “Boys will be boys, unless they want to be girls!”
Racism is a disease of the soul that afflicts ALL Caucasians, but never people of color.
Racism can be cured by payment of Reparations to people of color.
Abusing slaves, not baseball, was the favorite past time of the Founding Fathers.
Jefferson Davis was president of a nation engaged in deadly war against the United States. Thus, all monuments and memorabilia honoring Davis shall be exhumed and destroyed,… in the name of tolerance and diversity.
References to DIXIE, the SOUTH, and other terms of endearment about states belonging to the Confederacy are triggers of violent racial hatred and bigotry. All such references must be stomped out and avoided under the threat of death!
And on and on it goes.
All of which leads to the most distressing fact of all: With America in desperate need of competent, patriotic leadership, we the people may have to choose between Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush in 2016!
Now THAT is a crock!

In yet another wretched foreign policy failure, Barack Obama’s much-maligned effort to undercut world secure by allowing the terror state of Iran to go nuclear is about to go belly-up and miss the June 30 deadline for completion.
Of course, Obama and the mainstream media conspirators will spin the latest failure as yet another great foreign policy victory for The One and his crippled Secretary of State, the non-effervescent, uninspiring and uninspired John Kerry.
Come to think of it, perhaps Obama’s latest dud failure should, in fact, be considered a win in the perspective of “Better NEVER than late,” as all of Obama’s policy initiatives should judged?
Whom, then, should get the credit for diffusing the most illogical, stupid, irrational idea to erupt from Obama’s dulled intellect in at least a week or so?
Be it John Kerry’s broken leg? Or Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei’s last minute demands and absolute refusal to allow western inspections of Iranian sites?
Or just chalk it up to serendipity, and good Karma for America!
Whatever, it looks as though the highly-touted surrender to the terrorist state of Iran by Barack Obama and his gimpy top diplomat will be delayed.
As reported at the reference:
A senior U.S. official acknowledged Sunday that Iran nuclear talks will go past their June 30 target date, as Iran's foreign minister prepared to head home for consultations before returning to push for a breakthrough.The greatest angst seems to come from the west, where Barack Obama’s tenure as president is rapidly ending and Obama is in a full-court press to establish a foreign policy “legacy” that will rival his destructive efforts on domestic issues such as immigration, race relations, and economic growth.
Iranian media said Mohammed Javad Zarif's trip was planned in advance. Still, the fact that he was leaving the talks so close to the Tuesday deadline reflected his need to get instructions on how to proceed on issues where the sides remain apart - among them how much access Tehran should give to U.N. experts monitoring his country's compliance to any deal.
The United States insists on more intrusive monitoring than Iran is ready to give. With these and other disputes still unresolved, the likelihood that the Tuesday target deadline for an Iran nuclear deal could slip was increasingly growing even before the U.S. confirmation.
The dispute over access surfaced again Sunday, with Iranian Gen. Masoud Jazayeri saying that any inspection by foreigners of Iran's military centers is prohibited.
He said the attempt by the U.S. and its allies to "obtain Iran's military information for years ... by the pressure of sanctions" will not succeed.”
With any decent luck at all, “Better NEVER Than Late” will get us through Obama’s ruinous tyranny and into the sunshine sure to bless we the people on January 20, 2017!

Barack Obama continues to build on his paradoxical reputation as a racist agitator and defender of throat-cutting, Jihad-crazed Muslims.
In response to the evil murder of nine church-going African Americans in Charleston, South Carolina, Obama joined the lynching crowds that would blame the tragedy, at least in part, on the Confederate Flag.
As reported, "The president has said before he believes the Confederate flag belongs in a museum, and that is still his position," Eric Schultz, a White House spokesman, told reporters aboard Air Force One on Friday.
A museum, sir?
Then what about the Koran, the Islam equivalent of the Holy Bible, and the Users Manual for decapitations, throat cuttings, live burning, and other barbaric acts against infidels who fail to embrace the murderous dogma of Mohamed, the Prophet?
Shall this murderous volume from the sixth century be consigned to a museum and banned from public exposure to protect Christians, Jews, and others who regard Mohammed and Islam as deadly religious frauds?
Paradoxically and curiously, when it comes to “Religion of peace” blood letting and abuse, Barack Obama is far more understanding and anxious for tolerance.
As reported: President Obama stressed religious tolerance during an Iftar dinner to celebrate the Muslim holiday of Ramadan, linking the murders of nine black Christians in South Carolina with the killings of three Muslims in North Carolina earlier this year.
"As Americans, we insist that nobody should be targeted because of who they are, or what they look like, who they love, how they worship. We stand united against these hateful acts."
Obama lamented the "distorted impression" that many Americans have of Muslims.
"Here in America, many people personally don’t know someone who is Muslim. They mostly hear about Muslims in the news — and that can obviously lead to a very distorted impression," Obama said.
Of course, learning about the Confederate Flag from the media is entirely acceptable, as long as the news promotes the false narrative that the Confederate Flag, and the South, is all about racism, slavery, hangings, burning crosses, and other evils committed by hooded white Christians!
Distorted impressions, indeed, sir!

Ever on the prowl for an opportunity to demean America and slam the 2nd Amendment rights of US citizens, Barack Obama found the opportunity to do both at the same time as a result of the tragic slaughter that took place in Charleston, South Carolina this week.
During a press-conference, Obama asserted, “This kind of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries.”
Of course, Obama’s statement is patently false.
Even worse, this president and his former “In Contempt of Congress" Attorney General, Eric Holder, were major players in a scandal involving government gun-running, a scandal that cost US Border Control Agent Brian Terry his life and which resulted in the death, or maiming, of at least 150 civilians in Mexico.
It became known as Fast and Furious, and involved the deliberate purchase and transport of firearms from the US Government to criminal elements in Mexico.
Fast and Furious is described as follows, see reference:
“The stated goal of allowing these purchases was to continue to track the firearms as they were transferred to higher-level traffickers and key figures in Mexican cartels, with the expectation that this would lead to their arrests and the dismantling of the cartels however no means were employed to track either the firearms or the traffickers once they left the United States.
The tactic was questioned during the operations by a number of people, including Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and Explosives (ATF) field agents and cooperating licensed gun dealers. During Operation Fast and Furious, the largest "gun walking" probe, the ATF monitored the sale of about 2,000 firearms, of which only 710 were recovered.
Guns tracked by the ATF have been found at crime scenes on both sides of the Mexico–United States border, and the scene where United States Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was killed December 2010. The "gun walking" operations became public in the aftermath of Terry's murder.
According to Humberto Benítez Treviño, former Mexican Attorney General and chair of the justice committee in the Chamber of Deputies, related firearms have been found at numerous crime scenes in Mexico where at least 150 Mexican civilians were maimed or killed. Revelations of "gun walking" led to controversy in both countries, and diplomatic relations were damaged.
As a result of a dispute over the release of Justice Department documents related to the scandal, Attorney General Eric Holder became the first sitting member of the Cabinet of the United States to be held in contempt of Congress on June 28, 2012. Earlier that month, President Barack Obama had invoked executive privilege for the first time in his presidency over the same documents.”
The awful facts about Fast and Furious and the Obama administration’s cover up, should prompt the following rejoinder to The One:
“Your administration caused US weapons to be sent to a foreign nation, where said weapons were used to kill an American Border Patrol Agent and 150 Mexican civilians!
“With all due respect, sir, Get off your high horse!”

Recently, Pope Francis spoke about poverty and the obligation of faithful Christians to fight poverty with heart, soul, and…. wallet!
Specifically, during Mass in the chapel of the Domus Sanctae Marthae, Pope Francis said in part(See reference):
Being fully Christian means being rich in spirit, faith, the Word, wisdom and zeal — things that Jesus has taught and offered all people, he said. Make sure, however, that this huge amount of "wealth in the heart" also impacts the wallet, he said, because "when the faith doesn’t reach your pockets, it is not a genuine faith."
Christian giving goes beyond plain charity, which is good, but isn’t the "Christian poverty" believers are called to embrace, he said. "Christian poverty is: I give to the poor what is mine, not the excess, but also what is necessary" for one’s own well-being…
In other words, one must give until they are also poor!
With all due respect to His Holiness, pronouncements such as this would have more legitimacy if the gold and silver sequestered in the dungeons of the Vatican basement were exhumed and donated, in whole, to charitable organizations certified as genuinely dedicated to ending world hunger and poverty, especially among children.
And, no, donations to the Clinton Foundation, including $700 hundred thousand dollar speeches spilling from the lying lips of Bill Clinton would not qualify as spiritual manna for IRS purposes!

Pope Francis’s grand entrance into the politics of climate change was tarnished a bit when his encyclical was leaked by an Italian magazine.
Italian magazine L’Espresso leaked Pope Francis’ hotly anticipated encyclical on climate change on its web site on Monday, breaking an embargo on the document set for Thursday.
The 192-page document is Pope Francis’ first major teaching letter on climate change and its effects on the planet’s poor. Hailed by some as the “Pope of the poor,” Francis’ linkage of environmental and economic issues puts the Vatican out front on a closely watched topic.”
Meanwhile, back in Washington, D.C., Barack Obama took advantage of the leak to trumpet additional executive orders that he will issue to combat Climate Change.
President Barack Obama is preparing to unleash a series of “executive actions” aimed at boosting the green energy industry as part of the president’s global warming agenda.
The White House is also ordering the IRS to come out with guidance and rules to get nonprofits to invest in green energy technologies, along with creating more government financing options for small businesses looking to go green.”
The big question: Is the Pope now dictating US policy from the Vatican, or is Obama functioning as a public relations mouthpiece for the Pope when it comes to climate change?

For nearly 30 years, US presidents, Democrat and Republican alike, have puzzled over what to do as America has been invaded by tens of millions of uneducated, impoverished, non- English speaking foreigners from south of our borders.
In 1986, Republican president Ronald Reagan signed the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) which was supposed to solve the illegal problem forever by 1) amnestying 3-4 million illegals, and 2) imposing costly penalties against US employers who hired illegals.
In the years since IRCA was executed, the population of illegals has soared, while both Republican and Democrat presidents have arrogantly refused to aggressively enforce the law by securing the borders and deporting invaders. The US government now estimates that 11 million people are here illegally, but that has been the estimate for a decade or more.
More realistic estimates are that as many as 30 million illegals now reside here unlawfully, which reaffirms the obvious: Amnesty only aggravates the problem by encouraging others to invade with presumed impunity!
Amnestying 30 million illegals would forever alter America’s social, political, and cultural footing and deprive legitimate US citizens of their homeland.
Yet there are still politicians who clamor for amnesty for all illegals. Republican Jeb Bush is the most vocal and dubious given his wild assertion that illegals should be granted US citizenship because, after all, they were motivated by LOVE!
Not jobs, free health care, education, welfare, housing, food stamps or dinero, or any of the material booty one would suspect: According to Jeb! It’s all about Love!
And Jeb should know, since he claims to be Hispanic whose family tree is cluttered with former US presidents!
Regrettably, elected officials did almost nothing to address the illegal mess, until Barack Obama that is. Obama has taken illegal alien pandering to a
whole new level with “Executive Orders,” that would allow Obama to go around Congress, the American people, the US Constitution, and unilaterally impose his version of “the right thing to do,” on a nation of 330 million people.
Thankfully, Obama’s tyrannical madness was blocked by the courts, and the issue is in abeyance, to be adjudicated in according to the law, rather than by a wrong-headed Constitutional Scholar with a cell phone, a pen, and an ego the size of Latin America!
And there may be a way out of the illegal alien mess that does not involve corruption of the rule of law or the US Constitution, or an unlawful run round-around the US Congress.
The answer? Mass exorcism, perhaps.
Can a country with deep Christian roots like Mexico find itself at the mercy of demons? Some in the Church fear so.
And as a result, they called for a nation-wide exorcism of Mexico, carried out quietly last month in the cathedral of San Luis Potosí.
High levels of violence, as well as drug cartels and abortion in the country, were the motivation behind the special rite of exorcism, known as “Exorcismo Magno.”
Cardinal Juan Sandoval Íñiguez, the archbishop emeritus of Guadalajara, presided at the closed doors ceremony, the first ever in the history of Mexico.
The event was not made known to the general public beforehand. According to Archbishop Cabrero, the reserved character of the May 20 ceremony was intended to avoid any misguided interpretations of the ritual.
But how can an entire country become infested by demons to the point that it’s necessary to resort to an Exorcismo Magno?
“To the extent sin increases more and more in a country, to that extent it becomes easier for the demons to tempt (people),” Fr. Fortea told CNA.
The Spanish exorcist warned that “to the extent there is more witchcraft and Satanism going on in a country, to that extent there will be more extraordinary manifestations of those powers of darkness.”
And of course, when those demons latch on to illegals and migrate north, America becomes a devil’s paradise!
But how can Exorcism reverse and prevent future illegal invasions?
It will probably involve a two-pronged approach:
1. Illegal aliens currently in America should be treated en masse, after which they will abandon sin and voluntarily self-deport in a southward direction. This is a variation of the plan that Mitt Romney advanced in 2012.
2. All of Mexico must be subject to mass exorcism on a regular, perhaps quarterly basis. That would assure that demons with their eyes on Texas, Arizona, or California would be healed before they can invade.
That beats the hell out of expecting dim wits like Governor Jerry Brown of California to act responsibly!
Exorcism: A blending of religious and political forces that just might save America!

After seven years of gut wrenching controversy about whether or not Barack Obama met the Constitutional eligibility requirement to be president, one would think that “vetting” would an imperative for responsible media in fulfilling their 4th estate obligations to the American people.
The fact that there is so such thing as a “responsible” media in the US is, of course, all too true, but should not accepted as an excuse for letting the likes of Barack Obama occupy the Oval Office!
Of keen interest as we approach the 2016 presidential cycle is the personage of Hillary Rodham Clinton, left-wing extremist and former Secretary of State and US Senator from New York.
Apart from Clinton’s alleged involvement in the execution and cover up of the Benghazi scandal and other possible high crimes and misdemeanors, the Lady’s claim to be 67 years old simply does not ring true.
Fact is, Hillary looks to be at least 85, especially in photos taken after all-night State Department flights during which too much raucous partying and lord knows what else happens and which apparently involves HRC!
Although the Constitution does not establish an upper age limit for serving as president, prudence would dictate that anyone who looks as trashed as Hillary does should be automatically disqualified on the basis of appearance alone!

Lies That Make News: Jeb Bush Is Hispanic; Rachel Dolezal Is Black; & Hillary Clinton Is Trustworthy!
By John W. Lillpop
Good grief, whatever happened to the American virtue of telling the truth, regardless of whether it bodes well or ill? You know, the “old school” virtue that caused me so many harsh spankings because of “ innocent deviations from the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but…,” in my misspent youth?
The new normal seems to be: Reveal as little as you can, and then only that which enhances your image---whether true or not!
This unhappy devolution of truth is celebrated as progress when male star athlete Bruce Jenner is featured on the front page of Variety Magazine as the very female Caitlyn Jenner, following his/her transformation at the hands of modern, intrusive science.
Granted, the Bruce/Caitlyn story may not be as important as the war against ISIS, or California’s man-made (Democrat Party) drought crisis, or Barack Obama’s drive to pave the way for Iran to join the nuclear club en route to annihilating Israel and six million expendable Jews.
Still, there are instances in the news where prominent or newsworthy people are engaged in lying on important matters.
Take Jeb Bush: Jeb’s political agenda is largely about making illegal invaders, mostly Hispanics, into legitimate citizens because, after all, these foreign criminals were driven to their crimes by LOVE!
So in love with this idiotic notion is Jeb Bush, that he has in the past declared himself to be Hispanic, although, in reality, he is a lily-white descendant of two former US Presidents!
Does America really want to elect a man to high office who can’t remember his ethnic identity, or who is willing to fake it for political advantage, or both?
Then we have Rachel Dolezal, head of the local chapter of the NAACP and chairwoman of a police oversight committee in Spokane Washington, positions allegedly secured, at least partially, as a result of her claim to be African-American.
How in the world is the cause of the African-American community served when an individual deliberately lies (allegedly) about her race, apparently to improve her chances of securing a position of high credibility and authority with the NAACP? How does her behavior reflect on the majority of NAACP members who are honest, forthright people?
Finally, we have the case of Hillary Rodham Clinton, known far and wide as a “congenital liar,” allegedly complicit in the Benghazi slaughter of 4 American diplomats, and the elaborate cover-up of same to protect Barack Obama just before the 2012 presidential elections.
This case is probably the most egregious and despicable example of awful behavior, made all the worse by deliberate obfuscation with the intent to obstruct justice. A trait which is NOT acceptable in a candidate for the US presidency!
The bottom line: Just say no to bottom feeders Jeb Bush, Rachel Dolezal, and Hillary Clinton.
Let’s restore honesty to its rightful place as a honored virtue in American culture!

It would be belly-gushing hilarious were it not so damn pathetic: Barack Obama racing off to the Capitol Building, where the evil Congress resides, hat in hand groveling for votes to pass legislation that would give him additional (and dangerous) powers in global trade talks.
With a last-minute trip to the Capitol, President Barack Obama sought to quell a revolt Friday among House Democrats threatening to torpedo top-priority legislation to strengthen his hand in global trade talks.
Just a fracking moment, patriot!
Is this the same gnarly Marxist who taunted Republicans who objected to his abuse of Executive Power with this snotty rejoinder: "Middle-class families can’t wait for Republicans in Congress to do stuff. So sue me," Obama said.
Is this the same defiant lunatic who argued that he was empowered to use Executive Power without Congress, when he said, “"I've got a pen to take executive actions where Congress won't, and I've got a telephone to rally folks around the country on this mission."
The same “Constitutional Scholar” who mislead, or deliberately lied to, millions of illegal aliens into believing that he, Barack Obama, was above the law and Congress and could, therefore, protect illegal aliens from the law with the simple stroke of a pen?
The same fellow who, after his exalted Executive Orders on immigration were put in abeyance by the courts, announced that the next step would NOT be a direct appeal to the Supreme Court, most likely because of obvious weakness in the arguments?
So why not shut down the Congress, media, and the world by issuing another Executive Order granting yourself unilateral domain over all transactions and laws involving Us trade, Mr. President?
Then jump on your cell phone to announce your latest decree to all concerned parties, the media, and the American people!
WHY not, sir?
We are waiting!

Does anyone remember, or give a damn about, the events of November 4, 2014?
Back then, Republicans were given control of both houses of the US Congress, ostensibly to stall, if not make grave-yard dead, the tyrannical abuses of Barack Obama, America’s diversity-gone-amuck Poster Child.
Republicans were charged with confronting The One and ending his threat to “fundamentally transform” America.
God Bless the GOP! cried conservatives in premature, unfounded joy, hailing what at the time seemed like the return of sanity and patriotism to the halls of Congress.
We will take America back! , Crowed “leaders” Mitch McConnell, John Boehner and others, as they boldly promised Constitutional-based, low-cost governance, free of higher taxes, tyranny and the inevitable corruption that comes with having a Democrat-majority in control of any significant segment of government.
More than six months later, it’s damn near impossible to cite any positive achievement(s) attributable to the GOP unarmed revolution of 2014.
Rather than gallant crusaders of the loyal opposition, Republicans resemble Pre-puberty school girls totally mesmerized by a smooth-talking, ultra-charismatic rock-star, to whom their allegiance and loyalty is boundless, notwithstanding profound ideological differences.
The mind boggles. Picture Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, and John Boehner in cheerleaders’ garb, each wearing an “OBAMA!” shirt, and waving pompoms screaming, “TPP NOW!”
It’s as if the GOP’s best and brightest have misread the 2014 elections as a mandate to grant Obama even more power and Congress less oversight!
Is that what voters had in mind when they wrestled Senate leadership from the feeble hands of Harry Reid? Or when the GOP majority in the US House was expanded?
The inept, disjointed Republican response to the tyranny of Obama can be summarized in the following “discovery” of the secret immigration powers granted to Obama in the bowels of the proposed TPP bill.
Discovered inside the huge pile of secretive Obamatrade documents released by Wikileaks are key details on how technically any Republican voting for Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) that would fast-track trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal would technically also be voting to massively expand President Obama’s executive authority when it comes to immigration matters.”
Right after the November 4 elections, Barack Obama issued “Executive Orders” to indemnify millions of illegal aliens from existing immigration law which provides for deportations of invaders.
Those Executive Orders have been put in abeyance by court rulings, subject to further adjudication in the courts, notwithstanding the tyrant’s pen and cell phone!
So, how is it that the GOP Congress is trying to give this president, who has tried hard to scuttle immigration law, with unilateral powers that would enable him to wreak havoc with American culture and history?
Clearly, Republicans are as brain-dead and as morally defective as most Democrats!

From the “Now You Tell Us!” absurdity file, former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld now claims that W. Bush was wrong to try to build a Democracy is Iraq.
As reported at the reference:
“President George W. Bush was wrong to try to build democracy in Iraq, former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said in a recent interview, marking a striking admission from a key player behind the 2003 U.S. invasion.
In an interview with British newspaper The Times, Rumsfeld said that efforts to oust Saddam Hussein and replace his tyrannical regime with democracy were unworkable, and that he had concerns about the plan from the beginning.
I’m not one who thinks that our particular template of democracy is appropriate for other countries at every moment of their histories,” Rumsfeld told The Times. “The idea that we could fashion a democracy in Iraq seemed to me unrealistic. I was concerned about it when I first heard those words.”
Rumsfeld, who served under Bush from 2001 to 2006, has previously defended the administration’s actions in the run-up to the war, which dragged on for years before formally ending in 2011.
n the interview with The Times, Rumsfeld addressed the issues that world leaders face today, warning that he did not believe the West is equipped to combat growing Islamic extremism or the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, a militant group that has taken hold of swaths of the Middle East.
“The movement for a caliphate, the movement against nation states is central and fundamental. And no one’s talking about it. Have you ever heard anyone at the UN begin to think about the concept?”
The former defense secretary suggested that world leaders needed to mount a broad offense, one that could last for decades.
“You begin to look at this thing not like a war but more like the Cold War … you’re not going to win this with bullets, you’re in a competition of ideas,” Rumsfeld told The Times “With all due respect to the former Defense Secretary, that message is 12 years, 5,000 American lives, and a couple of trillion dollars too late!
Not to mention the fact that Bush’s colossal misjudgment led directly to the disastrous election of Barack Obama, the worst president in US history!
Thanks for absolutely nothing, Rummy!

For nigh unto seven years, Barack Obama has mystified political pundits, critics and supporters alike, with statements and behaviors that often seem contradictory to his own best interests.
For instance, in 2009 the president rushed off to Copenhagen in order to pitch the case for holding the 2016 Olympics in Chicago. This despite an already full plate of important domestic and foreign situations in urgent need of attention from America’s new chief executive, and no reliable assurance that Chicago would win the coveted award, with or without The One on hand.
Obama’s Copenhagen strategy became more than just a minor embarrassment when The One’s personal presence failed to seal the deal for Chicago; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil received the award and will host the Olympics in 2016.
One can only imagine the gloom and doom that must have spoiled the president’s return flight from Copenhagen, sans the glory rightfully owed the silver-tongued Marxist from Chicago, as a matter of birthright and PC decorum!
In the ensuing years, Obama continued to downgrade the presidency with foolish acts of pomposity and delusion causing learned people to question his “Smartest Man In the Room” self-profile and openly muse about the disconnect between Obama’s reputed sky-high IQ and his bumbling missteps.
From vanishing red-lines in Syria to leading from behind in Libya and other foreign conflicts, to domestic incompetence which gifted both chambers of the United States Congress to the GOP, The One has distinguished himself as uniquely undistinguishable from the most incapable, destructive presidencies in US history.
Obama’s disastrous policy in the vanquished state of Iraq is another prime example of entanglements gone completely awry.
For it was while Obama was taking yet another victory lap for bringing the soldiers home from W’s “dumb war” that the world became aware of ISIS, the Islamofascist monster created in Syria and Iraq to fill the void left by the hasty, ill-conceived retreat of America from the cradle of civilization.
ISIS, which, despite it’s name, Obama insists is NOT Islam, has slaughtered, burned alive, tortured, and ruthlessly destroyed thousands of innocent lives, including Christians beheaded for the onerous sin of allegiance to the Cross, in an unprecedented reign of terror and sub-human barbarism not seen since Adolph Hitler and the Third Reich haunted mother earth.
Despite the horrendous presence of ISIS, Barack Obama still has no strategy for defeating the evil Muslim relics from the 7th century; but rest assured that Obama and his minions are ahead of the curve and closing in on victory against the non-existent threat of climate change and global warming!
So, how to explain Obama’s fixation with idiocy and utter failure?
Consider this quote from a former adviser who claims that Obama once confided to him: “You know, I think I am the closest thing to a Jew that has ever sat in this office.”
Given Obama’s deep-seeded hatred of Jews, is it possible that The One says and does what he does to punish himself for being Jewish?

Louis Gutierrez, Democrat misfit from Illinois, is notorious for making outrageous, blatantly racist remarks in support of Hispanics illegally in America. In his twisted, logic-free mind, Gutierrez appears wed to the anti-American idea that US borders, immigration laws, and deportation statutes should not apply to Hispanics because…. they are Hispanic.
Even more confounding, according to the addled Representative, those who disagree with him on borders and immigration are automatically racist bigots!
The mind boggles at the absurdity: If you believe that US borders and laws should apply all, including Hispanics, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, etc., then YOU ARE RACIST!
Of course, such idiocy is found in abundance in the Party of Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi where enforcement of borders and immigration laws is actually considered un-American!
While Gutierrez is probably not quite as shrill as Pelosi, he does give the demented granny a decent run for her money when it comes to being the most outrageous.
On Wednesday, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) predicted that a federal judge’s injunction against President Barack Obama’s temporary amnesty program will activate an unprecedented “militancy” in the immigrant community that will drive them to the polls against Republicans.
Gutierrez, who vowed that pro-amnesty advocates would not be “deterred” by Judge Andrew Hanen’s injunction, told MSNBC’s Jose Diaz Balart that the “militancy that will be activated throughout the immigrant community in terms of voter registration, voter participation and voter anger at the Republican Party . . . I think you are going to see it in an unprecedented manner.”
“You may think you won today, but your victory is going to be short-lived, and November 2016 is coming right around the corner–and this will come back to haunt you,” Gutierrez, who has urged illegal immigrants to get amnesty to punish Americans against illegal immigration at the ballot box, warned Republicans.”
Perhaps the addled Gutierrez can explain how that “militancy” will be exhibited at the polls since illegal aliens are forbidden from voting and the courts have shut down the Obama amnesty machine which would had produced millions of votes for Democrats?
Surely, you can’t be advocating voter fraud, can you Rep. Gutierrez?

Papal pronouncements are historically spiritual in nature and, as such, are generally not particularly fertile grounds in which political hacks choose to frolic and/or wallow.
However, in 2015 things may be substantially different. This is so because Pope Francis has lent the power and prestige of his popeship (?) to political issues of vital interest in the US presidential elections slated for 2016.
For instance, to date his Papacy has entered the fray on global climate change, middle-east politics (Israel versus the Palestinians), and same-sex marriage, in addition to the typical, garden-variety Vatican vitriol directed at money, profit, and capitalism.
Incidentally, pompous pronouncements from the Pope and other men of the cloth regarding the evils of wealth and profit would have more legitimacy if the gold and silver sequestered in the dungeons of the Vatican basement were exhumed and donated, in whole, to charitable organizations certified as genuinely dedicated to ending world hunger and poverty, especially among children.
And, no, donations to the Clinton Foundation, including $700 hundred thousand dollar speeches spilling from the lying lips of Slick Willie, would not qualify as spiritual manna for IRS purposes.
While it should astound absolutely nobody if the Republican “pool” of presidential candidates were expanded to include Popes, illegal aliens, Mexican national politicians, ISIS warriors, and Hispanic posers, one would expect such renegades to be more attractive to the tsunami of progressive fascism sweeping through the Democrat Party.
Thus, if Pope Francis can come up with the $1 billion dollars, or so, needed to wage a respectable “the meek shall inherit the earth” campaign, versus Hillary Clinton and her passion to represent “Ordinary Americans,” Pope Francis may be compelled to dust off the traditional Papal Tiara, and toss it into the ring in opposition to Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Martin O’Malley and other out-of-touch whack-jobs on the left who hate America in the proud, storied tradition of Barack Obama.
Pope Francis: An attractive alternative to the wacky extremism of Hillary Clinton and the Democrat Party?

Just how zany, off center, and out of touch are Barack Obama and most Democrats?
Consider that the Democrat Party (and too damn many RINO Republicans like Jeb Bush) is almost unanimously in favor of pandering to tens of millions of foreign invaders who have violated US borders, thumbed their noses at our laws, refuse, for the most part, to assimilate into our culture and learn our language, cost taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars each year, and imperil American culture, sovereignty, and homeland security.
Most of these foreign invaders remain culturally and spiritually committed to their 3rd-world nations of origin, and would support same should hostilities erupt between those nations and the US.
Despite all of this, Democrats are most eager to grant citizenship and voting rights to foreign invaders who have no business being here and who have nothing of value to offer the greatest nation on earth.
On the other hand, when it comes to the rights of citizens to bear arms, a right specifically guaranteed by the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution and which states that the right shall not be infringed, Obama and the Marxist left is committed to ignoring the Constitution in order to stifle the rights and will of the people.
Once again, it appears that zombies on the left got it backwards!
Obama and the government should be enforcing the rule of law by hunting down and deporting any and all illegal aliens!
And, the Obama administration, sworn to protect and defend the Constitution, should at the same time be defending the 2nd Amendment rights of citizens by opposing ill-conceived laws engineered by gunaphobic lefties in states like California.
Come on Obama! Defend the 2nd Amendment and enforce existing immigration laws.

This month of June is destined to be historic for we the people of the US on many fronts.
To begin with, the Barack Obama & John Kerry “negotiating” team has set the end of June as the deadline for arming the Islamic Republic of Iran with the nuclear wherewithal to shove Israel and it’s six million occupants into the Mediterranean sea. The only non-divine intervention that could possibly prevent the extinction of Israel would be a late surge of Republican guts in Congress in opposition to the Obama anti-Israel scheme; unfortunately, GOP guts are a scarce commodity these days, hardly ever seen or felt, and never to be relied on when it comes to Obama administration dealings with Islamic terrorists!
Later in June, monumental issues will be decided by six men and three women in black robes operating out of Washington, D.C. These nine intellectual behemoths will decide the fate of Marxist medicine (ObamaCare) and the fundamental issue of whether or not a free people is free to define what constitutes a legal marriage, or whether such definition is the exclusive province of elitists in government and the law.
Other matters will also be delivered from on high as well, but none will be more controversial, divisive, and monumental as the same-sex decree.
Above all else, the Supreme Court’s rulings on same-sex marriage will establish the right and standing of flesh and blood mortals to question the validity of Judeo-Christian teachings and heritage as expressed in spiritual volumes such as the Holy Bible.
For example, does it really matter what Jesus said 2,000 years ago if five modern-day SCOTUS associates believe otherwise in 2015?
Do free and democratic elections conducted in California and other states mean anything all if a federal judge(s) decides that the election result is “unconstitutional?”
Are the views and opinions of ten of millions of legitimate citizens to be ignored in deference to the will and judgment of non-elected officials whose views may reflect dangerous biases and bigotry, and whom are not subject to formal oversight?
Is America ready to forego the blessings of the Creator in order to embrace the political correctness garbage of immoral, insane liberals?
