ALOHA, ALL!! I haven’t blogged lately because I’ve been on the road again. Seems like life gets in the way of blogging sometimes. One of my trips involved a visit to New York City – a great place to be during Thanksgiving and the lead-in to Christmas. I enjoyed my share of shopping, (mostly window shopping) eating and sightseeing. A great escape. But it was in the car ride to Newark airport, returning home, when I was brought back to reality. The driver was originally from Belarus. Since hubby was a Russian history major, he enjoyed chatting with Gregory. Gregory has been in the US for over 20 years. His perspectives on the recent election were interesting and insightful. Gregory mentioned several times that the Republican party was run by “incompetent nincompoops” for letting the Democrats frame who they are. He thought Obama’s re-election was a “given” judging by how the GOP handled their messaging to the electorate. Interesting indeed, coming from an individual who has experienced one-sided messaging in an oppressive society. While hubby and I didn’t agree with Gregory on everything, we found a lot of common ground. Mainly, that the GOP needs to wake up and start creating their own narrative. We’ll see how things spin out with the “fiscal cliff” situation. Who will do a better job of messaging to the masses?
Another Interesting Russian Perspective: Obama’s Soviet Mistake “Putin in 2009 outlined his strategy for economic success. Alas, poor Obama did the opposite but nevertheless was re-elected. Bye, bye Miss American Pie. The Communists have won in America with Obama but failed miserably in Russia with Zyuganov who only received 17% of the vote. Vladimir Putin was re-elected as President keeping the NWO order out of Russia while America continues to repeat the Soviet mistake.”
Obama’s Still Campaigning: Obama Hits The Road To Rally Support For His Tax Plan “I’ve been keeping my own naughty and nice list for Washington,” he told workers and others gathered at a plant that makes K’NEX toys. If Republicans hold middle-class tax cuts hostage to preserve them for the rich, he said, then everyone could end up paying more next year. “That’s sort of like the lump of coal you get for Christmas. That’s a Scrooge Christmas.” I repeat: who will do a better job of messaging to the masses?
Obama’s Still Golfing: As Fiscal Cliff Looms, Obama Returns To Golf Course with Bill Clinton “Obama and Clinton last golfed together in September 2011 before the election. As Ryan Lizza reported earlier this year, the golf game symbolized the beginning of Obama’s special relationship with the former president.”
Why Can’t They Just Do This? Six Fixes To America’s Fiscal Crisis “Elected officials in Washington keep enacting short-term patches to keep the government running, which is not a real solution. We need to reform the programs that are causing the runaway spending and deficits today and in the years to come—the large, lumbering entitlement programs of Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.”
LOL – check out liar *OOPS* I mean candidate Obama in 2008
BREAKING NEWS UPDATE: House GOP Makes $2.2 Trillion Debt Counteroffer To Obama “House Republican leaders have made a counteroffer to President Obama in the fiscal cliff negotiations, proposing to cut $2.2 trillion with a combination of spending cuts, entitlement reforms and $800 billion in new tax revenue.”
Alanis Morrisette To Play Israeli Concert Despite Protests “Singer Alanis Morissette will grace an Israeli concert stage tonight, a simple act which artists like Stevie Wonder have turned down in recent weeks for political reasons.”
Obama Slaps States That Don’t Comply with Obamacare “Residents of states that refuse to set up health insurance exchanges under Obamacare are set to be hit with higher premiums under new rules announced by the Health and Human Services Department.”
Gitmo North Returns: Obama’s Shady Prison Deal “If you thought President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder had given up on closing Guantanamo Bay and bringing jihadists to American soil, think again. Two troubling developments on the Gitmo front should have every American on edge.”
Residents Alerted To Obama’s Hawaiian Holiday Plans “While many residents welcome the First Family, others are disheartened by the restrictions put on air, water and road travel while the President and family are in town, especially because it is the holiday season and many families on vacation want to use their boats or surf and paddle in the welcoming ocean waves fronting the Kailua homes. In addition, the President’s caravan of at least 22 vehicles including an ambulance can easily overwhelm the community that typically has single lane streets. Adding to the controversy surrounding the President’s visit is the cost of the trip.” Oh. Joy.
And because we all could use a laugh…“PJTV – your antidote to the obsolete media”
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON!!
(To my faithful readers – thanks for your support! I won’t be blogging as often during the Holiday season. I still need to finish that book!! But rest assured I’ll be back in full force in 2013. And yes…the snow is back! So those white dots you see on your screen are supposed to be there.)
ALOHA, ALL!! Eric Holder’s Department of Injustice is going after Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The DOI claims it’s because Arpaio violated the civil rights of individuals in Arizona and discriminated against Latinos. Interesting. Isn’t it curious that Holder is going after Sheriff Joe but NOT The New Black Panter Party? Remember this?
And the bounty they put on George Zimmerman’s head?
I also wrote in the last HDR about how Holder refuses to go after the “corrupt-o-crats” on Wall Street because they are big money donors to Obama: Justice for Sale At Holder’s DOJ Yet Holder thinks that Joe Arpaio, who is trying to protect the citizens of Arizona and attempting to uphold the law, is worth pursuing? Coincidentally, Arpaio has been investigating the validity of Obama’s long-form birth certificate. Gee….how convenient. OMG – Obama Must Go! It’s this kind of cronyism and witch-hunting mentality that pervades the Obama administration. That’s why it’s not enough for Republicans to gain control of both Houses of Congress…..Obama doesn’t care about the separation of powers anyhow. Obama needs to go in November so his entire stench-filled Cabinet is eliminated.
In Other News…
Premature Elation: Obama’s States’ Rights Hypocrisy ”Obama’s new position in support of gay marriage fits well with his opposition to DOMA as regards federal recognition of same-sex marriages, but his resort to the states’ rights argument would seem to affirm one of DOMA’s central provisions.” (BTW, I contend Obama is not a flip-flopper on gay marriage, but a liar. He’s supported it all along and has said he’s pro or con depending on what would help get him elected: Obama Backed Same Sex Marriage in 1996. Here’s Obama in 2008 with Rick Warren. Note the body language – I’m no expert but you can tell he’s a liar by the eye movements and head tilting:
Romney’s Cruel High School Pranks ”Despite demonstrating zero curiosity over Barack Obama’s college transcripts to check on just how brilliant the academic actually was, the Post now has a big expose on Mitt Romney’s high school career as … a practical joker.” Wow. Can anyone say “desperation”???? In contrast….
Flashback: Obama’s Sordid HIgh School Past ”Obama, by all accounts, was a habitual drug user in high school. He tried cocaine, he admits in Dreams From My Father; he “tried drugs enthusiastically.”
BREAKING NEWS UPDATE! Washington Post Romney Hit Piece Implodes ”Timed to drop the day after President Obama’s announced embrace of same-sex marriage, the story set the political world atwitter. But earlier today, Breitbart News reported that the Post had inflated witness testimony.” And: Family of alleged Romney Victim Angry Over Exploitation of Story ”Betsy Lauber, one of John Lauber’s three sisters, spoke with ABC News Tuesday night regarding the accuracy of the story: “The family of John Lauber is releasing a statement saying the portrayal of John is factually incorrect and we are aggrieved that he would be used to further a political agenda. There will be no more comments from the family,” she said.”
Does anyone not think this was a concerted effort on behalf of the lamestream WaPo and the Obama administration? Yet just like the so-called “War on Women” and “Doggate,” it’s blown up in their faces. Keep it up, fools!
324,000 Women Dropped Out Of Labor Force In The Last Two Months ”This year (in both January and April), only 57.6 percent of the women in the civilian non-institutional population were in the labor force. That is the lowest rate of labor force participation by American women since April 1993, according to historical data maintained by BLS.” Hey ladies….still think Barry’s da bomb???????
And ICYMI….Putin Opts Out Of G-8 Summit, Cancels Meeting With Obama ”Putin claimed he was too busy finalizing cabinet appointments to make the May 18-19 G-8 Summit at Camp David. Yet the Obama administration had moved the gathering to the Camp David presidential retreat in Maryland from the planned venue in Chicago partly to accommodate Putin.” LOL!! So now the Russian president doesn’t respect the American president. Can you imagine this ever happening with Reagan? Or Clinton? Or even Bush? Barry wanted “space” and Putin gave it to him.
Final Thought: “I’m the elected sheriff, … I serve the people. I don’t serve the mayor. I don’t serve some politicians.” Joe Arpaio
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON – REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER!!
- Joe Arpaio to announce new information questioning Obama’s citizenship (thegrio.com) Of course, this couldn’t have anything to do with why Holder is going after Arpaio. Nothing at all.
