“The American head of state grew up with a mother on food stamps,”

29 Nov

“the British head of state grew up with a mother on postage stamps.”

Contrary to the impression that he has so assiduously worked to cultivate, Barack Obama is not a king of either the divine-right or impotent-figurehead variety, but instead the president of a republic.

…it all becomes a bit trickier when the person in the scenario is the most powerful man in the world and not merely a figurehead or one-off talent. Popularity contests are all well and good. Until you hold one for the position of commander-in-chief.

America getting what it voted for… good and hard.

Obama heckled by his own ‘supporters

A young man standing onstage with Obama at an event Monday in San Francisco disrupted the president’s speech by shouting pro-immigration slogans.

“There are thousands of immigrants deported every day,” yelled the heckler, who was a member of the multi-cultural crowd that the White House had assembled behind the president.

“Attacked” by his own prop…One wonders how this guy got on stage…..

About That Nuke Deal…

Obama’s Staggering Incompetence

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said that the six-month interim period, during which Iran would take steps to rein in its nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief, has not yet begun. Furthermore, there are still a number of details to be worked out, she said, without specifying what points had yet to be finalized…

…Psaki said, “it would be a progression,” but she acknowledged that they were still “working through” it.

“It’s not one month and it applies to all of the relief internationally,” she explained. “So there would be a progressive process over the course of the first set.”

Psaki also said that among the “technical details” yet to be worked out was the order in which sanctions would be relieved.

DHS Pegs Returning Vets as # 1 Terror Threat…

Meanwhile In Kentucky…

An al Qaeda-linked terrorist, who was resettled in the U.S. as an Iraq War refugee after allegedly killing American soldiers, was caught on camera in Kentucky handling heavy weapons that the FBI said he believed would be sent to insurgents back in Iraq.

The 2010 video, obtained exclusively by ABC News, was part of a broader ABC News investigation into the flawed refugee vetting program, which officials said may have let “dozens” of terrorists into the country.

Perhaps Huma Abedin over at State was running the program…

If You Like Your Unemployment Data…

It’s Organizing For Obama Bullshit…

On Friday October 5, 2012, the BLS released what was arguably the most important report of Obama’s first term: the final jobs number, and unemployment rate before the November 2012 presidential election. As so many predicted, it “plunged” from 8.1% to 7.8% allowing the president to conduct countless teleprompted speeches praising the success of his economic recovery. It also served as the basis for the infamous Jack Welch tweet: “Unbelievable jobs numbers..these Chicago guys will do anything..can’t debate so change numbers” and prompted the pro-Obama media to quickly brand all those who questioned it as conspiracy theorists.

In the home stretch of the 2012 presidential campaign, from August to September, the unemployment rate fell sharply — raising eyebrows from Wall Street to Washington.The decline — from 8.1 percent in August to 7.8 percent in September — might not have been all it seemed. The numbers, according to a reliable source, were manipulated.And the Census Bureau, which does the unemployment survey, knew it…

So Did I…

NY Times Declares Washington, D.C. The “Gayest Place In America”…

“Why are they all here?” he asks. “One answer seems to be that they have always been here. Gays and lesbians do seem to be drawn to politics in disproportionately high numbers. [Democratic lobbyist Steve] Elmendorf told me he thinks that gay people, because they were mostly without children, were able to resist the draw of higher pay in the private sector.

Statement from the Government of Canada regarding the repeal of (Australian) carbon tax

Our government knows that carbon taxes raise the price of everything, including gas, groceries, and electricity. Prime Minister Abbott has said that, in Australia, the repeal of the carbon tax will reduce the average household’s cost of living by (in Australian dollars) $550 a year, take $200 off household power bills and $70 off gas bills.

“Our government has reduced greenhouse gas emissions while protecting and creating Canadians jobs – greenhouse gas emissions are down since 2006, and we’ve created 1 million net new jobs since the recession – and we have done this without penalising Canadian families with a carbon tax.”

Now if we just fix BC…
