It is so time for a rant here at Fuzzy Central; I can feel it coming, so grab some popcorn and stand well away from your computer monitor.
Amnesty and the Traitorous GOP Who Support It
Seriously? I am spitting mad about this, and my anger is directed not so much at McCain the Regressive Clown or Graham the Closet Case but at Ayotte and Rubio. Those two ran on, courted, and were accepted by the TEA Party . . . the same TEA Party they are now pledging–behind closed doors, of course–to destroy. I don’t know diddly about Ayotte, and after this, I don’t really care if she can cure cancer with the mere bat of her eyelashes.
As for Rubio . . . I haven’t trusted him since I found out that he was charging his own personal expenses to the state GOP credit card, of particular, damning interest was that he only paid it back years later–after he was caught. Really, that was it for me with him. Notice how after I posted about that, I just kind of shut up about him? He was a disaster in the making, but he seemed a better deal than Crist and that other guy, and conservatives seemed determined to see in him what they waned to see, so . . . I shut up. No more. Never forget that the one and only reason Rubio is in the United States’ Senate is the support he got from the TEA Party, the same TEA Party that he snubbed by refusing to join the Senate TEA Party Caucus. The same TEA Party that he lied to–repeatedly–about his views on illegal immigration and amnesty.
Do not, DO. NOT. let the GOP sneaky snakes who voted for cloture and then voted against amnesty get away with their treachery. They KNOW that a cloture vote ensures the bill goes forward–just as they did on ObamaCare, and they do it anyway. Yes, they really believe we’re that stupid. Enough!
et tu Paul Ryan? I have no words. Just lots of sad. I carry it in a big suitcase with wheels now.
Snowden, the ManBearPig er, TraitorHeroWhackJob
Dude, I’m not sure what Snowden is; his “tyranny tour” is not helping his case with anyone who might be inclined to land on the “hero” side. He exposed illegal government activity. That’s whistleblower stuff, but . . . *shrug* what the heck ever. Like he really matters in the grand scheme of America’s destruction.
More on the ManBearPig as Deluded and Frightened Obama Pivots to Global Warming Climate Change (or whatever)
Poverty is skyrocketing, electricity bills are to follow that skyrocketing trajectory (as Obama promised), the number of people collecting welfare and food stamps is fast quadrupling. Millions upon millions of Americans either have no job at all or are working only part-time (which, thanks to the ObamaCareTax monstrosity is now less than 30 hours per week, further crippling the hourly-wage-earning lower and lower-middle classes).
So what does Obama deem–the very week that the world learns that the earth has not warmed in at least 15 years–the key, most imperative item on his agenda? Yep, killing U. S. coal. And along with it, still more jobs, and pushing people who are barely hanging on to their lower and lower-middle class status into the poverty/government-dependent classes. Oh joy!
It’s not enough that we all actually know now that the whole AGW hysteria is utter and complete bullcrap–oh no, now we need the Divider in Chief pontificating on how he’ll heal the planet. Again. Or something. Sick-making. I love how he and his horrendous nightmare of a wife flew off–in separate planes, Air Force One AND Two–to the same place and essentially, give or take a couple hours, at the same time. Yeah, that’s a man who is really worried about his carbon footprint.
Typical commie regressive: laws and rules and government-dictated morals are for thee, not for me.
Sick. Of. It.
So what, you may ask, of the recent Supreme Court rulings, of the ongoing assault on Obama’s “political enemies” while he courts America’s enemies in our White House, of the blatant military and arms support of al Qaeda, of the embarrassing place that America now holds in the world with Putin laughing in Obama’s face and Afghanistan, etc. dictating terms to him, of the Common Core nightmare, the impending amnesty’s effects on America and her people, of the major scandals that reveal a third-world mentality in this country’s president . . . of a million other things that this administration is doing, has done, intends to do. What of all of it, you ask?
If one more person tells me some variation of “there is no leader in the WH,” my head may explode. Of course there is. This idea that Obama is somehow removed from, above, or not up to his scrawny neck in what his administration is doing must be dispelled. Now, do I think he’s the brains behind the operation? No way, I don’t think he’s that bright, but I do think he’s surrounded himself with people who have plenty of brains and plenty of nefarious, traitorous plans. I also believe that he’s well-aware of and ideologically happy with every single thing that has led to the myriad scandals that stink up our White House. Do I think that he gets his hands dirty (beyond going out and spreading vile lies, doubts, and suspicion of the TEA Party and conservatives more generally), that some “smoking gun” will be found tying him directly to the IRS, DOJ, AP, Rosen, NSA, or any other scandal we currently know about or ones that may yet be revealed? Nope.
But it’s his Chicago stench that permeates every single scandal, up to and including Benghazi. The bullying, the thuggery, the blackmail, the boot on the neck, the manipulation of events for a specific end . . . all of it is straight out of Chicago, specifically, and leftist “thought” more broadly.
It’s no mistake that his czars and other appointments are a rag-tag assortment of dirty dealers, traitors, commies, anti-Semites, radicals, and fascist zealots. Those people didn’t just materialize around him; remember, he sought out this type of person all the way back in college. That never ended, as we can see all too clearly.
Last week, Obama announced the war on terror over; for him, it is. Indeed, it was never really about Islamic terror for him; he happily supports both in word and deed (and with our money) all sorts of Islamic terrorism and terrorist groups. Hell, he calls various Islamofascist groups his “peace partners.” That he’s droned a bunch of them doesn’t change that fact. And it’s right in line with Obama, anyway, he’s famous for sacrificing friends, family, leftists, whomever for “the cause.” But Islamic terror isn’t his focus, what he does has been a means to an end–his support for the Arab Spring wasn’t an accident, nor was he unaware that Islamofascist states would emerge (everyone was saying so from Glenn Beck to John Bolton). Neither were any of Obama’s moves an accident from basically encouraging Iran to nuke up to removing the missile defenses in Poland.
We may not be able to connect the dots yet, but it’s becoming pretty clear that it’s all of one piece, including what he’s been doing right here in America. To Obama, the nation’s real enemies, his real enemies, are people who “want to make America a better place to live,” people who support the 10th Amendment, people who are pro-life, Christian, Jewish, white, patriots. He’s made this crystal clear since practically Day One with every appointment, every czar, every policy, every word.
[Van] Jones is a racist, a self-proclaimed communist, a “truther,” and a proponent of destroying the American system and replacing it with a . . . well, with another one that favors people of color and subjugates whites. I’m not making this up. Van Jones has said it. All of it. He talks of white people purposely poisoning minorities with pesticides, he signed a document demanding investigation into our government’s role in either allowing or actually perpetrating the 9/11 attacks on this country, he’s spoken of using the green movement to install minorities in key positions of power and remaking the system to favor them, and he’s called republicans assholes. Well, okay, that last one doesn’t matter; we’ve all said worse about our political adversaries at one time or another. But the other points, they matter. Each of them alone should exclude him from the president’s inner circle, and together, they paint a picture of a dangerous, racist, anti-American communist who should not be allowed to enter the White House gift shop let alone sit in the Oval Office and snuggle with the president.
. . . . .
You have to wonder, if you’ve got a brain in your head, what is going on with the other BO czars. Who are they and what are they hiding? What is BO’s agenda in having such radical and controversial figures surrounding him, advising him, making policy for all of us and doing so well outside the checks and balances set up by the Constitution?
Another fun BO czar is Mark Lloyd, BO’s Diversity Czar. He’s a fun guy who thinks that Chavez’s coup in Venezuela was beautifully accomplished and that his control of use of the media should be emulated here in the U. S. God forbid the people have access to anything that might be anti-BO. I wonder how much he had to do with the “flag the fishy” campaign? Anyway, he finds free speech rather pesky especially from the conservatives, having the unfortunate effect of allowing people to express their dissent. The best place to stop free speech, according to this lovely man, is by forcing right wing radio off the air with 100% taxes on their operating costs; once that pushes them off the airwaves, their license will be handed over to a (liberal or progressive) minority group (this is where the “diversity” thing comes into play, I guess, you know making sure that all talk radio leans left. Lots of diversity there.). I never listen to talk radio, but apparently, there are far right discussions taking place on those stations. So what? If you don’t like it, don’t listen. The people who are listening are obviously of the same mind, so shutting them down won’t do anything about changing ideology, it’ll simply drive people to the internet (if BO doesn’t declare an “emergency” and shut it down, anyway) or to Fox News (which I do watch). At least until they figure out a way to push Fox off the air. Again, though, not being able to see or hear views with which you agree does not change your own views, so I find this rather silly. And frightening.
And there it is, the admission. There is a narrow window of time, while BO is still prancing around the WH playing grown up, to force through his radical agenda, an agenda that apparently includes regulating (or whatever you call “filtering and funneling” the right information to the American public) the internet, ensuring that information (the correct information, Herr Copps) reaches the masses in the correct manner and correct measure. Can’t rely on “flag the fishy“campaigns forever, now can we? And note, too, that like all good progessives, Copps understands that they may need to settle for a “down payment” (aka “a starter home“) on the publicly-funded, government-run propaganda machine of the (not so distant) future.
Part of what we’ve seen develop over the past few weeks is the Obama camp’s purposeful promotion of the image of a detached, disinterested, ditzy dimwit so that we will all blame someone, anyone other than Obama himself. I’ve bought into it myself, so I understand where people are coming from, but if nothing else has become clear over the course of the past several months, it’s that Obama is central to what is going on in terms of discriminating against conservatives, Christians, veterans, and pretty much everyone who disagrees with him on any point. Might he be a puppet? Sure. That’s even likely, but it does not exculpate him. He is not an innocent victim here.
The innocent victims are we, the people and our Constitutional Republic. People keep thinking that he’s incompetent, a failed leader, but that’s true only if his goal is to support America, keep her and her people safe, to protect and defend her Constitution. Because, yes, a thousand times, yes, he’s totally incompetent at that.
But here’s the secret: he’s not applying himself to those goals. He never has and he never will.
Listen again to the great and fearless Andrew Breitbart:
Okay, this is the last straw on Benghazi for me. Now the Coward in Chief is blaming the CIA for his own failures . . . or were they failures from his perspective? That, to me, is the real question here.
So let’s look back, shall we, to why we were even in Libya in the first place. Remember the time that Obama went to Congress and got the Constitutionally-required approval to take military action in Libya? Remember how Libya was a clear and direct threat to the United States? Remember the required roll call votes from both houses of Congress before any such military action can take place? No? Well, that’s because none of that happened. Obama decided, seemingly on a whim, to take America to war with the UN’s authorization, not that of the United States Congress. Here’s what he said at the time:
“Today,” Obama said on March 19, “I authorized the Armed Forces of the United States to begin a limited military action in Libya in support of an international effort to protect Libyan civilians. That action has now begun. In this effort, the United States is acting with a broad coalition that is committed to enforcing United Nations Security Council Resolution 1973, which calls for the protection of the Libyan people.” (source link)
And now, the Obama White House is so desperate to distract attention from Benghazi that it’s willing to admit that its IRS was targeting, intimidating, and silencing conservative, pro-life, and Christian organizations (I write “was,” but we don’t know that it’s stopped or that it won’t start again when the heat is off). Remember, we wouldn’t even know about the IRS thuggery if the IRS itself hadn’t said something about it. What on earth could be so explosive about Benghazi that the president is willing to show his true Chicago-style, thug-like use of the IRS to strong-arm his political opposition in direct violation of both laws and the Constitution?
In 2010, Obama told a Latino audience: “We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us.” We, in the conservative blogosphere were horrified. This sounded Nixonian, it sounded banana republic unethical. Yes, the president sounded petty and self-important, but he was also proud in a bizarre way–as if, punishing enemies and rewarding friends was something that was not beneath him, as we might expect from someone in a position of such power, but was instead something that he actually relished. It was mind-boggling, really, to think that the president’s political “enemies” (not “opponents,” not “loyal opposition,” but “enemies”!) were going to be labeled by the head of state as essentially “‘enemies’ of the state.”
Even those of us who heard it and understood the implications didn’t know how, exactly, these punishments would be doled out, what form they would take. Perhaps, we hoped, he’d just keep calling us names, mocking and deriding us, sneering down at us from his Styrofoam pedestal. Maybe he’d lie about us more than usual, urge his sheeple in the tabloid media and regressive groups to attack and attempt to discredit us more often. Maybe he’d set up another version of “Flag the Fishy” and “Attack Watch” to get our fellow citizens to turn us into the state . . . for some reason, to locate all the “enemies” he has? And to what end? After all, this is America, you can’t “punish” Americans for political dissent or on the whim of a president.
You can’t, right?
This president has taken punishing his enemies (and often simultaneously rewarding his friends) and elevated it to an art form that would make history’s worst tyrants and dictators drool with envy:
His TSA: in addition to gross abuses of power and zero ability to actually detect an actual terrorist, the TSA considers anyone who “opts out” of their porn scans and gate rapes to be “domestic extremists.”
His DHS: in addition to the unprecedented (and frankly bizarre) stock-piling of ammunition about which they decline to comment, issued a memo in April 2009 telling various law enforcement agencies across the country to be on the lookout for dastardly “. . .. groups that reject federal authority in favor of state or local authority [i.e. that pesky 10th Amendment which protects citizens and states from a too-powerful central government]. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single-issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration,’ the warning says.” I.e. conservatives, TEA Party groups, patriots.
His military: in addition to forcing its pastors to perform gay “marriages,” has also targeted Christians in a special effort to silence their free speech. And the army has been told not to consider actual terrorists (Nidal Hissan, for example) as terrorists, but instead to focus on Christians, Jews, and Islamaphobes.
His press secretary: tried to exclude the “enemy” network Fox News from an interview. Yes, it was one interview, but if they had succeeded, it would have been the end of Fox in the WH press pool. It was a baby step to see how far they could go in ending the freedom of the press.
Not only are we, justly, concerned that political dissent will make us a target of IRS (or FBI, CIA, FDA, DOJ, or any other executive branch agency–keep in mind that the videographer 0 falsely blamed for Benghazi is still in prison. Sure, he did something unrelated to the video wrong, but odd how he was only picked up after the attack in Benghazi when the president and secretary of state needed a scapegoat. And believe me, every single person out there is guilty of some crime or violation of some regulation–there are so many that we don’t even know about. You could be harassed for collecting rain water, for growing vegetables or herbs on your porch, for who knows what else. So we are not only concerned about the IRS targeting us as taxpayers), but we also are concerned about what this means with the new role that the IRS has as the 0Care enforcers. They now have, granted by the 0Care monstrosity, access to our personal bank accounts (actual access, not the power to freeze them–they’ve had that for ages), free reign to monitor our purchases and income, access to our personal medical files, and a list of other means by which to “enforce” the 0Care mandate. These things could all be used to intimidate, bully, silence, even imprison any person “guilty” of political dissent.
And now we know, for a fact, that 0 is not only willing but actually relishes wielding the power of the presidency to “punish” his “enemies” (no, I won’t rant about his insistence that he can use drones to kill American citizens on American soil because he thinks them an “enemy,” but . . . well, not so tinfoil hatty now, huh?). We, that is anyone who opposes this administration, are 0’s “enemies,” and no abuse of power, no strong-arm tactics, no bullying thuggery is beneath him.
These are the times that try men’s (and women’s) souls. Luckily, we are Americans, and this tyrant wannabe will not intimidate, cow, or silence us. We are not Germans defeated in spirit and nation, we are not Russian or Chinese peasants–isolated and disarmed, we are not, in other words, easy pickings. And for that, I am forever grateful.
I’m not sure whom I find more despicable, the leftist pols who spin the most amazingly absurd narratives or the leftist morons who gobble them up as Gospel, infuse them with their own special brand of hate, and spew forth bile and vitriol like an overactive, over-reactive volcano. Yes, I’m kind of talking about what’s going on as the left struggles to defend their Dear Leader and “messiah” on Benghazi. Note that the last link was to a British news site; oddly, apart from Fox News, the only coverage of this massive story is being conducted overseas (oh, and it’s the leftist Guardian, not the rightish-but-still-faaar-left-of-me Telegraph, but you know how those Brits are just RAAAACIST Republicans who hate Obama. Or something.). Note, too, that some tabloid television networks, like NBC, are willing to admit that Obama is incompetent or “sloppy.” That’s huge. He’s been the bestest best thing since best things were first found to be best, but now suddenly he’s incompetent? That’s one hell of an admission from the salivating, slavish media. And we know why they’ll throw out that bone.
And, frankly, I–at least–don’t care. We’re talking about “news” organizations that failed to cover the Gosnell trial because it was “local” but spent hours and hours on some crazy, murdering biotch’s guilty verdict . . . while the Benghazi hearings are the actual news–national and international news–of the day. Indeed, the hearings are being covered not only in Britain but in Germany, even in Russia and in the Middle East. Our “media”? Dancing around like puppies for scraps from their master’s table. Massive fail.
Here’s the thing, the point, if you will. A poll shows that the majority of Americans accept gay people, and that’s probably true. I do. And I know that my conservative friends and relatives do. But here’s where everything gets murky for sophomoric leftist brains: I can accept gay people without *gasp* supporting gay “marriage.” Yes, it’s true! I can also accept that Obama is president without wanting to make him dictator for life. Imagine that!
Nuance that is, of course, totally lost on the all or nothing, my way or the highway left. You can’t just accept gay people, you can’t just accept that the government should recognize gay relationships as they do those of heterosexuals. Oh no! That’s not good enough, not “tolerant” enough for the most intolerant people on the planet. You must accept that God is wrong, that your religion, your faith, your beliefs are all wrong. You must embrace something that you might accept but not endorse; if you’re not ready to don a pink tutu or a suit and tie and march in the gay pride parade, then you’re not tolerant enough. Actually, well, you’re just a toothless troglodyte teabagging troll.
It’s sad, isn’t it that our wanna-be intellectual and emotional superiors on the left are incapable of reason, of compassion, of understanding, of anything remotely resembling human feeling?
Sad, and I used to find it perplexing, but it’s really not. They just have simple, childlike thought processes that literally jump from “you accept gay people” to “therefore, you must accept gay ‘marriage'” and with that the utter destruction of religion and of religious freedom in this country. And if you don’t, well, everyone knows you can’t accept gay people without supporting gay “marriage”; therefore, you must HATE gay people! Again, uh huh. The lack of logic, of critical thought, is mind-numbing. But not unexpected.
The left does this on purpose and urges its mindless sheeple to not think, to be “tolerant” and to think that tolerance somehow means acceptance, even submission. It does not. I can tolerate something without accepting it, much less submitting to it. There’s a huge difference, actually, but the English language seems to be a bit problematic for shallow, unthinking leftists (probably why they feel the need to “revise” and “adapt” it so often).
And we see this knee-jerking, conclusion-jumping, skipping over major points and differences, ignoring of language and its meaning again in Obama’s statement that “unless you’re a Native American, you came from someplace else.” Well, no . . . poop, Sherlock. (omg, is that an awesome show or what? Anyway,) yes, Dear Leader, we–well, okay, maybe not me, personally. Or my parents. But sure, somewhere down the line, some of my relatives–came to the United States from someplace else. But here’s the thing, they didn’t come here illegally. They came here within and abiding the law, respecting their new home and hoping to succeed in the land of the free and home of the brave. They didn’t sneak in, they didn’t “overstay their visas,” they didn’t come as “birth tourists,” they came as legal aliens who acquired citizenship and paid their own way, often against great odds.
But conflating all immigration with illegal immigration, all immigrants with illegal immigrants, is par for the regressive course. Now, do you really think that Obama himself doesn’t understand the difference? Of course he does. Do you really think that Obama doesn’t know the difference between accepting gays and demanding that gay “marriage” be the law of the land? Of course he does. As in all things from the economy to foreign policy, he just plays his mindless minions like a fiddle. Rome may burn . . . but his disciples won’t notice. Until it’s too late.
