The Reverend, the Racists and the Dane-geld
He’ll Always Encourage You to Tithe! And that is called paying the Dane-geld; But we’ve proved it again and again, That if once you have paid him the Dane-geld, You never get rid of the Dane. Rudyard Kipling If you looked up an Organizational Chart of Sony Pictures, you would see Amy Pascal listed as a Co-Chair. What that chart would | Read More »
The TRUE Great Failure of Barack Obama.
There has been quite a bit of commentary – not to say, ‘gloating’ – about the Democrats’ rather problematical 2016 prospects*. To wit: their front-runners are all old (late sixties to early seventies), all have baggage, and all distinctly lacking in any sort of executive experience whatsoever**. Worse, their front-runners are also their bench, as the surviving Democratic governors aren’t exactly anything to write home about, | Read More »
So, France is Scrapping its 75% Tax Rate
France is providing us with a very good case study on what happens when you raise taxes too high. The 75% tax rate imposed upon the richest French residents* was a centerpiece of Socialist Francois Hollande’s campaign for the French Presidency. At any rate, having found out just what happens when you raise taxes to such draconian levels, the country is now quietly scrapping it. | Read More »
Tech at Night: The NSA Strikes back at North Korea? Merry Christmas.
So Barack Obama denies it’s an act of war for a foreign country, North Korea, to attack American Internet resources, those of Sony Pictures. It is war though, as surely as an embargo is an act of war, though it is war by a new means. I hope South Korea is taking it seriously, because it looks like somebody is. NSA? Sounds like them, shutting | Read More »
When the American President Hates America
Barack Obama does not like the United States. There was a lot of truth when his wife said that for the first time she was proud of her country. The Obamas see the United States as a corrupt and bullying power that needs to be humbled. No one seeks to fundamentally transform something they love. And let us now consider that fundamental transformation. Russia has | Read More »
Obama very concerned about murder of NYC cops
Via the Twitter timeline of some guy at BuzzFeed Obama briefed on shooting of two NYPD officers in Brooklyn, per WH poorer. pic.twitter.com/VyCrcUwyBF — Andrew Kaczynski (@BuzzFeedAndrew) December 21, 2014 From his first days in office, Barack Obama has made it one of his objectives to use race relations as a wedge for political purposes. It started with the beer summit and it has metastasized | Read More »
Obama’s foreign policy enters 12-step program
One of the axioms for anyone entering a twelve-step program such as that pioneered by Alcoholics Anonymous is that first the participant must have hit rock bottom The concept of rock bottom is important in the 12 steps and treatment in general because it serves as a touch stone and a reminder. Addicts and alcoholics are very good at altering the world they see to | Read More »
Sarah Palin & Ted Cruz: The Two Most Powerful People on Earth
When Gabby Giffords was shot in Arizona, the left went into a frenzy blaming Sarah Palin. In fact, when I was on CNN, I went on TV with Cornell Belcher and he was livid when I suggested leftwing rhetoric could be as hostile and divisive as rightwing rhetoric, if not more so. John King was apologetic for using war metaphors for politics and promised to | Read More »
Buried lead: Barack Obama comes out in favor of Citizens United!
Dear God but this man is unaware of the universe. (2:45, if it doesn’t work) Because if somebody is able to intimidate folks out of releasing a satirical movie, imagine what they’d start doing if they see a documentary that they don’t like… Actually, we don’t have to imagine what they’d start doing. You see, in 2008 a federal court decided that a documentary called Hillary: the | Read More »
Obama’s Cuba deal frees a murderer
One of the features of Obama’s unilateral decision to skirt federal law and expand diplomatic and commercial ties with Cuba was that, along with a clutch of spies, he released a convicted murderer. On February 24, 1996, three unarmed private aircraft piloted by men belong to the anti-Castro humanitarian group, Brothers to the Rescue, were making a routine flight outside Cuban territorial waters and airspace | Read More »
Communists Win the Day. Frank Marshall Davis Would Be Proud Of Obama
Few could have predicted that communist regimes would win the day on December 17, 2014. Communism was so twentieth century. But Barack Obama, promising to fundamentally transform America, has done so. His mentor, communist activist Frank Marshall Davis, would be proud of him. To reiterate my conclusion on Barack Obama’s world view and policy objectives: to make the world safer, the United States must be | Read More »
The GOP Emboldened Barack Obama on Cuba
From Wikipedia: Currently, the Cuban embargo is enforced mainly with six statutes: the Trading with the Enemy Act of 1917, the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, the Cuba Assets Control Regulations of 1963, the Cuban Democracy Act of 1992, the Helms–Burton Act of 1996, and the Trade Sanctions Reform and Export Enhancement Act of 2000. The Cuban Democracy Act was signed into law in 1992 | Read More »
Sure, let lame duck Barack Obama normalize relations with Cuba.
Since John F Kennedy, Presidential foreign policy towards Cuba can be summed up in one sentence: Let my successor be the one who has to be the guy that let Fidel Castro win. Well, guess what: Barack Obama volunteered to be the poor, stupid sad sack that has to eat the pavement on that. CNBC reports: “The U.S. is starting talks with Cuba to normalize full diplomatic | Read More »
Obama shows no leadership on fight with ISIS
Earlier in the week the White House sent the low-wattage Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to ask the Senate to pass an authorization for the use of military force against ISIS. It has been clear from the start that Obama really doesn’t care about ISIS. He is concerned that his legacy, other than trashing the US | Read More »
The GOP: For Wall Street, Not Main Street
Sixteen Republicans voted against the rule on the CROmnibus. They threw the process into chaos and sent Republican leaders scrambling. Barack Obama had to send his Chief of Staff up to the Hill to convince Democrats to go along with it. And ultimately we got a clear picture of where Republican leaders stand. They headed to the edge of the shutdown cliff, willing to shut | Read More »
