Bernie Goldberg. Ya gotta love him.

"For the past few days I’ve been thinking a lot about who bothers me more – the little
psycho with the $2 haircut who runs North Korea or the liberal weasels in the entertainment industry who don’t have the guts to say, “Hey Kim, bite me! We’re running the movie about you … and if you don’t like it too @#$%^ bad! ”

You want to know what a whack job Kim Jong-un is? He committed this great big cyber attack on Sony over a dopey movie starring Seth Rogen and some other guy whose name I already forgot. If Robert De Niro and Meryl Streep were the stars of “The Interview” I might understand what got the Pillsbury Dough Boy in Pyongyang so mad. Memo to dictator with a few screws loose:
Lighten up. It’s a comedy!"

"He (Obama) could take the advice of the Wall Street Journal, which said “the U.S. government [should] pay Sony Pictures for the rights to ‘The Interview’ and release the movie for free into the public domain. The comedy about an assassination attempt on Kim Jong-un could then be seen by the world and translated into Korean, loaded on USB sticks, and floated into North Korea by balloons.”

Another snapshot of the Commander-in-Bullshit at work.

This past week, our President put on display his most outstanding leadership quality by standing at his 2014 final news conference and totally bullshitting the nation on the subject of the Keystone XL Pipeline.  He was asked by a news reporter about his attitude about approving the project when it comes to him from congress.  He weaseled out of saying he would approve or veto it.  He did this because he has an army of rich tree huggers who would be upset if they thought he would sign a bill approving it...so, he was covering his ass once again.  He went on to downplay the benefits of Keystone by blatantly stating that it would only provide 2000 jobs which would be only temporary ones at that.  He also dripped out some some low key fear regarding climate chage horseshit....again to placate
the "Green" congregation which already has him in their pocket.

How do we know he is just serving up more of his arrogantly proffered crap.  All we have to do is turn to information directly provided by government research on the effort.  The project has been researched and approved by a dozen different state and national government agencies with exceptional acceptance.

"Keystone XL is the definition of shovel-ready infrastructure project. Almost overnight, Keystone XL could put 9,000 hard-working American men and women directly to work. The U.S. State Department’s Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (PDF, 4 MB) found that the project would support more than 42,000 direct and indirect jobs nationwide."

A Message to SONY....

Dear Readers (including you feckless, sniveling Sony crapweasels hiding under your desks)

Freedom makes a lot of things harder. It is more difficult to raise children of good character in a society that tolerates and often celebrates bad character. It is often harder to build big and important things in a society where everybody gets a vote. That’s why so many people of a “pragmatic” bent have always looked longingly at evil countries where the people are less of an impediment to “getting things done.” Fighting climate change, if that’s your thing, is much tougher when everyone has private property rights. Fighting a war is more difficult when dissenters get to have their say. Maintaining a guild and the wages that go with it is harder when you have free competition.

The true lover of liberty acknowledges these things. He doesn’t say freedom is always more efficient or always yields superior outcomes (though it usually does). The true lover of liberty acknowledges that freedom has costs -- cultural costs, economic costs, political costs, national-security costs. And then, do you know what he says? “I don’t care.”

Well, sometimes I care. At home, when arguing with other Americans, there’s a lot of room to debate how liberty should be used and how it can be abused. A government grounded in protecting liberty depends on self-government and self-government requires restraint. Remember the line from “America, the Beautiful”?

"America! America! God mend thine ev’ry flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law!"

Just because you are free to say something is not a sufficient reason for saying it. Just because you can do what you want doesn’t mean doing what you want is a good idea. We can argue about such things. But such arguments are a privilege – and an obligation -- of free people. We get to decide where the public good takes precedence over the private. We get to debate the trade-offs between order and liberty, virtue and freedom.

Us. Not them.

Charles for President

If Obama had the intelligence and imagination of Charles Krauthammer he would not have become the 2nd failed president in just one generation.

Poor Thinking on the Keystone XL Pipeline

In his appearance last week on Comedy Central,  President Obama restated his approach to the Keystone XL pipeline decision, a mindset that can only be described as confused. Our 'leader's" confusion and presidential incompetence extends to his flawed thinking and inability to conceive a picture beyond political pandering plus a dedication to making Big Brother even bigger.

Below is a short course in the mysterious machinations  in the Keystone issue and the amazing lack of understanding this President displays in dealing with the challenge.

The president summarized his strange dilemma as follows: “[Keystone] could create a couple of thousand potential jobs in the initial construction of the pipeline, but we’ve got to measure that against whether or not it is going to contribute to an overall warming of the planet that could be disastrous.”

But this thinking hinges on three key — and false — assumptions.

First, that whatever carbon dioxide or pollution (note that I did not say “or other pollution” since CO2 is plant food, not pollution) would be generated in the building or operation of Keystone will not be generated in whatever other method ends up being used to transport oil from Canada through the United States.

Second, the usual climate alarmist assumptions, namely that humans are having a substantial impact on the climate and that a warming of the planet is likely to be harmful.

Third, and most important, the implicit assumption that climate change — even if you believe the alarmists’ claims — is the only risk worth considering.

Regarding ignoring the theoretical climate impacts of alternatives to Keystone: Opponents of Keystone (or more precisely of the section of Keystone that connects Alberta, Canada, to Nebraska) seem to believe that if we don’t allow a way to transport Canadian oil here, our neighbors to the north will then just leave it in the ground. This is, of course, preposterous. Since every potential alternative form of transportation, whether via truck, ship, train, or any combination likely creates more pollution than a pipeline, particularly if transported by people other than Americans or Canadians, and since any pipeline built by American and Canadian companies is likely to be constructed more environmentally sensitively than pipelines built overseas, a concern over carbon or pollution argues strongly for, not against, building Keystone XL.

As far as climate change overall: In short, depending on which data set you look at, planetary warming has either been much less than predicted or completely non-existent for at least the last 18 years. Since global carbon dioxide concentrations have increased steadily over the time period (even as U.S. CO2 emissions slowed temporarily during the recession), it demonstrates that CO2 simply does not have the climate-controlling power that the alarmist industry wants us to believe. Additionally, climate fears are based on an unjustifiable assumption that a modest global warming would be a negative for humanity when it fact the opposite is true.

And then there is Obama’s implicit assumption that the overriding risk to be considered is the climate. Environmentalists who claim to care deeply about the planet should be far more concerned about real, demonstrable risk than about the unproven (and increasingly disproven) hypothesis of human-caused climate change. One such demonstrable risk is that of oil spills and terrible accidents within other forms of oil transportation, particularly the trucks and trains that will continue, in the absence of Keystone XL, to carry the oil through the United States.

Even the Obama administration’s State Department recognizes this: “The increased number of unit trains… would affect communities through elevated air emissions and noise from the trains, and increased risk of spills and collisions.”

This is not to say that one form of transportation is utterly unsafe while another is utterly safe: Spill statistics are a close call: pipelines spill at lower frequencies but higher volumes than rail transportation of oil. Similarly, trains have more accidents but fewer fires and explosions. (There are similar comparisons made for transporting the oil by ship: very few incidents but potentially many barrels may spill in an incident.)

One of the most important statistics should be rates of injury and death, and on this score pipelines fare very well compared to trains: Overall, State concludes that transporting the Canadian oil by rail would add 49 injuries and 6 fatalities each year as compared to one injury and no deaths if the oil goes through Keystone XL.

In fact, State says that “Annual baseline injuries and fatalities without an increase in transport volume from rail transport or pipeline are projected to be approximately 712 injuries and 94 fatalities compared to three injuries and two fatalities for petroleum pipeline.” This argues not only for using Keystone to transport the new Canadian oil production but also to use it, and other new pipelines, to substitute for current rail transportation of oil.

A final point: Some argue against Keystone because they say the oil will make its way to the Gulf Coast to be refined and then exported rather than being used in the United States. Radical environmentalists go so far as to conclude that Keystone is therefore a “scam being played on the American people.”

Exporting American oil would require Congress or the president to lift the current export ban.The upcoming Republican controlled Congress is expected to send such a measure to the president’s desk in short order. Former Obama chief economic adviser Larry Summers supports lifting the ban but one of the president’s closest current counselors, John Podesta, has not made clear his position. Podesta’s prior job was running the Center for American Progress whose energy “expert,” Dan Weiss (a card-carrying member of the Cult of Al Gore) and a man who seems proud of his comprehensive economic ignorance), is against lifting the ban.

Not surprisingly, socialist senators and their friends in the environmental fear-mongering industry don’t understand even basic economics. Oil is traded worldwide with the two major benchmarks being the U.S.’s West Texas Intermediate (WTI) and Europe’s Brent Crude. The prices track each other closely, though in recent years American oil has been less expensive because of large supply in the Midwest.

If we export Canada’s increased oil production to the rest of the world, we will lower oil prices in the aggregate, including here in the United States. Yes, there may be regional effects of pipelines and yes, it is possible that Midwestern oil and gas prices would lose their current discount relative to the rest of the United States, but overall the United States would have lower energy prices. And that’s what matters.

Domestically, the more we lower oil prices, the lower Americans’ cost of living is and the more money we have to spend on things we want to buy rather than things we have to buy, such as gasoline and heating oil. Internationally, the more we can lower world oil prices, the more we prevent our enemies like Vladimir Putin and the radicals running Venezuela from being able to fund adventurist, militaristic, and anti-Western foreign policies, and the more we prevent our so-called friends in the Middle East from being able to use American, European, and Chinese money to support Wahhabism, Hamas, ISIS, and CAIR, and others who want us dead or destroyed as a free society.

Given all these factors, President Obama’s suggested calculus — balancing “a couple thousand jobs” versus what he perceives as the risks involved in building and operating the Keystone XL pipeline — is preposterous: The jobs it creates are a nice bonus (and are what the many labor unions who support the project care about), but they are not the most important benefit of the project.

Keystone XL won’t increase pollution but it will save American lives and hurt our enemies. 


Those who oppose it should be forced to justify their opposition in that context.

Top Democrats complain about terrorist torture.

Too funny to resist.  Thanks Joe !

Ferguson Officer probably shot just in time.

Here is the clip that shows Michael Brown of Ferguson fame having some fun and games with his friends and playmates. It is a video showcasing the felony assault and battery and robbery of an old man. In truth, while Michael Brown is the primary assailant, there is a second young man who also cold-cocks the victim who eventually staggers off, bumping into a building. Remember this. If, as rumored, Michael Brown?s mother and Live-in boyfriend could be brought to the State of the Union as honored guests as the Black Caucus is urging...Do you suppose they might recieve the "Parents of the Year Award" while there...and be sitting with the First Lady and first daughters?


THE KILLING OF POLICE OFFICERS -Just So We All Know

Our Columbine Contributor, Joe Rhodes got this item to us.  Thanks J.

Does anyone remember Detective Melvin Santiago? He was a Jersey City police officer who was shot to death just a month ago, on July 13th. Santiago was white. His killer, Lawrence Campbell, was black. Does anyone recall Obama appearing before  national television and calling for justice for Officer Santiagos family? Does anyone recall Eric Holder rushing to Jersey City to see that justice was done?

How about Officer Jeffrey Westerfield? He was a Gary, Indiana police officer who was
shot to death on July 6, 2014. Officer Westerfield was white, his killer, Carl LeEllis Blount, Jr. was black. where was Obama? Where was Holder?

Officer Perry Renn was an Indianapolis, Indiana  police officer who was shot to death July 5, 2014, the day before Officer Westerfield was killed. Officer Renn was white. His killer, Major Davis, was black. I don't recall any mention by Obama about the untimely death of Officer Renn. and, I doubt that Eric Holder rushed to Indianapolis to make sure justice was served.

Vermillion Parish Deputy Sheriff Allen Bares was gunned down by two men June 23, 2014 in Louisiana. Deputy Bares waswhite. His two killers, Quintlan Richard and Baylon Taylor were black. was Obama outraged? Did Eric Holder rush to Louisiana to make sure that the family of Deputy Bares found justice?

Detective Charles Dinwiddie of the Killen, Texas Police Department was murdered on May 11, 2014 by Marvin Lewis Guy, a black male. Officer Dinwiddie was white. Do you recall seeing anything about that on the news? Certainly, the white citizens of Killeen didn't take to the streets to loot and burn businesses. Do you recall any mention of Obama or Holder here?

Then, there is Officer Kevin Jordan of Griffin, Georgia Police Department.  He was gunned down on May 31, 2014. Officer Jordan was black, his killer, Michael Bowman was white. This was a white man murdering a black police officer. Where was Jesse Jackson? Where was "The Reverend" Al Sharpton?  Was there looting and burning on the streets
of Griffin, Georgia? No, in fact, we don't recall hearing about this one in the news as well. Why? You can draw your own conclusions.

Over the past 60 days, there have been five reported deaths of police officers by gunshot in the U.S. Of those, four were white officers who were murdered by black men. Blacks
complain that white officers treat black men more aggressively on the street. You can draw your own conclusions on that one as well.

A US President that tries to divide this republic, needs to be removed from office!

The Constitution is alive and well in Rifle !!

I don't think we will ever see our "Commander-in-Wimp" having breakfast in this place.


Take this short course on Obama's key power grab of your health care.

It does not take a lot of historic research to reveal the key political power seizures that are implemented by nation leaders when they are determined to build huge government bureaucracies and Socialist societies.

One of the first things they do is impose laws that will remove the private possession of firearms.  As the old saying goes...with so much truth:  "Those who forge their weapons into plowshares will always work for those who didn't."  The liberal forces at work,through Obama's sympathetic support has been  attacking the 2nd Amendment since his election.

Another first attack is to control the fundamental elements needed for life.  A huge one is energy.  If the government can control your heat, your electricity, and your mobility it then has you by the short hairs and you are easily controlled.  How about that Environmental Protection Agency...Obama's little army that doesn't even have to carry a gun to bring you to your knees.

Also at the top of the list of "how to create a socialist goverment items" is your health care.  What did our closet Socialist President do to you about 5 minutes after his ass hit the Oval Office?  He began his lying, cheating, conniving attack on our health care structure.  It has done more damage to our nation than any natural disaster we have ever experienced.  It has narrowed access.  Millions have lost their doctors, their hospitals and their insurance.  Their deductibles have doubled and quadrupled.  Another part of the government health care takeover is the attack on seizing control over doctors.  Dick Morris explains well.

What Al Sharpton needs to watch....

Obama Executive Action Power Plays Worries Liberals.

According to the latest Fox News poll, 43 percent of voters approved of President Obama’s temporary amnesty for some 5 million illegal immigrants. But when asked about the means by which he did it, support slipped to 38 percent. More tellingly, though, was that when asked whether they were concerned about the damage the action could do to the federal system of checks and balances, just 20 percent said they were not concerned that the president’s move was “permanently altering our country’s system of checks and balances.” 

Is it any wonder? Obama has been travelling the country to brag about the scope of his immigration actions and hyping the use of his executive power for years. He may have a serious trust deficit with voters, but Obama has at least been able to convince Americans of one thing: He means business when it comes to crushing Congress and expanding executive power.

“He's created an alternative system of immigration that Congress explicitly refused to pass. And that's what he's making: law. He cannot do that. Congress makes the law, not the President.”    – Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., on “The Kelly File” Watch here.

                                Ghosts of Christmas future - 

As Obama’s time winds down, it’s obvious the members of his party are thinking about the future. And it comes as we watch Senate Republicans debate whether to undo the “nuclear option” rule change Democrats enacted this year to allow the president to pack courts and federal agencies with simple-majority confirmations. 

Every indication is that Republicans will not turn back and restore clout to the party in minority. The lesson about the next presidency is clear, giving liberals lots to worry about. What would the next president do with a precedent such as this? What could President Hillary Clinton do for Wall Street? What could President Ted Cruz do to the tax code?

It's all about the money.

THE HEART BROKEN FAMILY


  ...And Momma  and boyfriend are raking in thousands of dollars by exploiting a dead kid they didn't even care about. Really sad but true. You won't hear these facets of the Ferguson story on the evening news. It doesn't take much to peel back the thin veneer of the left wing media's bias.

Canadian view of our mid-term election results

                       America is on the edge of a second revolutionary war.
                                                      By:  Marc Patrone

It may not be bloody like the first one, but it will be hugely important. Some might suggest it’s more a civil war, but with liberty and the constitution hanging in the balance, revolution seems a more appropriate comparison. There are no British troops or monarchy to fight this time. The ‘shot heard around the world’ wasn’t  fired from a musket, it came from the ballot box.

Americans have taken a long hard look at the kind of fundamental transformation promised by Barack Obama and the Democrat party and they want nothing to do with it. The Republican victory suggests Americans are more than just unhappy with the direction the country is headed. Such was the devastating scope of the electoral debacle for the Democrats that it appears Americans are mobilizing for war against the Obama agenda. They are only now truly beginning to understand the threat to liberty he presents.

What’s so deeply troubling, albeit not entirely unexpected, is the disdain, arrogance and contempt with which this president dismissed the results. “So to everyone who voted, I want you to know I hear you. To the two-thirds of voters who chose not to participate in the process yesterday, I hear you, too,” he said.    Meaning what?  He seems to be suggesting that by not voting, the majority of Americans agree with what he’s doing. Terrifying? You bet.

It’s taken six years, but the ugly truth about Obama’s contemptuous attitudes toward the people who elected him twice is becoming all too evident.

Lame duck? Guess again. The man probably realizes that a chance to remake the U.S. according to his far left view of the world may not come around again. His time is running out. 

Obama’s ‘nuclear’ option is amnesty for millions of illegals. He expects those illegals will become dependents of the state, thus stacking the electoral deck in favour of Democrats by promising the new ‘wards of the state’ a suite of entitlements. The depth of this destructive agenda is clear, rip off trillions in wealth (which Obama believes was stolen anyway) and give it to those whom he considers ‘victims’ of capitalism. The beneficiaries will naturally reward the progressive left with voter support into perpetuity. Viola, the progressive dream of a one-party state is realized. 

This has been decades in the making. The left has infiltrated, corrupted, and subverted the institutions that had, up to now, served as pillars supporting freedom, democracy, and prosperity. The bulk of what was once a free and independent media has been reduced to little more than an arm of the Democrats.

That tens of millions of Americans are flocking to Fox News, Conservative talk radio and online news sites is heartening but doesn’t change the fact most TV, print media outlets are in an advanced state of putrid, cancerous liberal rot. The same cancer has undermined the school system, ‘big labour,' the environmental movement, and the Hollywood culture machine. Even capitalism itself has succumbed to the lure of easy government money, power and cronyism.

So who is left to fight for freedom? The rest of America.

Obama will attempt to ram through amnesty, climate change, wealth redistribution and he will ignore the constitution to do it. Republicans have assured Obama impeachment is off the table. And so the battle lines are drawn. Fasten your seatbelts Canada, we’re about to get a front-row seat to the battle for the soul of America and indeed the free world. Let’s hope that, as in the first revolutionary war, that the right side wins.

If it doesn’t, we all lose.      Marc Patrone, Sun News Network 

Forgotten bits of history.

Israel Cohen, was a leading Communist in England in 1912. He published an article entitled "A Racial Program For the 29th Century.  This excerpt was read into our Congressional Record (pg.8559) by Congressman Thomas Abernathy June 7th, 1957 during a peak in the "Cold War" with Communist Russia.

"We must realize that our party's most powerful weapon is racial tension. By propounding into the consciousness of the dark races that for centuries they have been oppressed by the whites, we can mold them to the program of the Communist Party. In America we will aim for subtle victory.
While inflaming the Negro minority against the whites, we will endeavor to install in the whites a guilt complex for their exploitation of the Negroes.

We will aid the Negroes to rise in prominence in every walk of life, in the professions and in the world of sports and entertainment. With this prestige, the Negro will be able to intermarry with the whites and begin a process which will deliver America to our cause."


11 States now have more people on welfare than they do employed! (no data for 2013 yet.)





The Senate Budget Committee reports that in fiscal year 2012, between food stamps, housing support, child care, Medicaid and other benefits, the average U.S. Household below the poverty line received $168.00 a day in government support. What’s the problem with that much support? Well, the median household income in America is just over $50,000,which averages out to $137.13 a day.To put it another way, being on welfare now pays the equivalent of $30.00 an hour for a 40-hour week, while the average job pays $20.00 an hour.



The typical liberal Obama supporter, without knowing or understanding the FACTS believes that any facts that confirm progressive economic policies that are detrimental to their socialistic path has to be conservative propaganda. 


                                                                                            


MILLIONS FACE OBAMACARE PRICE HIKES

Amid a recent spread of buyer’s remorse among Democratic lawmakers who pushed President Obama’s complicated and unpopular health law through, the Obama administration is warning Americans that they face big price hikes if they don’t find their version of the ObamaCare blue light special aisle during open enrollment. 

In many cases that means changing coverage plans, even though you may be happy with it, again. Federal health officials say people could face rate hikes of nearly 10 percent and could lose subsidies if they don’t shop around. The warning comes on top of this year’s more costly premiums, which, depending on the state you live in, could mean a double-digit price jump. In other words, Americans, who were sold on claims of reduced rates, can add 
“You’d better shop around” to the ObamaCare hit parade of “If you like it you can keep it.”


And if that was not enough....who do you think will foot the Obamabill for this idiocy.  When was the last time you put on your glasses to check the calories on a little packet of ketchup to squeeze on your Quarter Pounder or fries????

Obamacare calorie labeling regulations hard to swallow at $1.7 billion -  

The federal government formally completed regulations that will force vending machines and restaurants to display calorie information, which can lead to businesses being fined thousands of dollars for not including the number of calories in a mayonnaise packet.  

The regulations, which originated in Obamacare, total 319 pages and will cost industry $1.7 billion to comply. The Food and Drug administration (FDA) published the final rules last week just before the Thanksgiving holiday, arguing the rules are ‘an important step for public health.

This is another perfect example of Obama's approved stupidity of a liberal Democrat Senate that did not read the frigging ACA bill !!!!
 

IndictmentI is Needed!! …Of an Entire Culture.

Now that a breath of truth has been allowed to escape, in the Ferguson, Missouri tragedy/turned social and economic fiasco, a few important things have become glaringly obvious:

1) Had he lived, Michael Brown himself, would have been indicted, on several counts, including attempted murder, assault on a police officer, aggravated assault during a robbery, and perhaps more.

2) All the so-called activists, the opportunistic pundits and other media types, as well as the self-serving, self-proclaimed leaders of the modern day “cause” for the advancement of civil rights for Black Americans, …sure jumped on the wrong horse with this one.

3) Once again, we are given an unmistakable example, this time by Michael Brown and his family, his friends, cohorts, and the whole Ferguson debacle, that the only thing “broken” here is not the American system of justice, …but the American Black Culture.
And sadly….

4) The further away we get from Martin Luther King, Jr.’s time, and 1968 in particular, the greater he becomes, …and the more we miss him.


Some questions arise, which were never considered, even for a fleeting moment, by the “oh-my-gosh,-here’s-some-more-terrible-racism” media, and the “fall-right-in-line” race baiters like the slimy Al Sharpton's and Jesse Jacksons's, …and ge
nerations of victimhood players. 

For example, …why was Officer Wilson forced to make the decision which ended Michael Brown’s life, …and changed his, and so many others, forever?

Darren Wilson didn’t jump in a cop’s car, and grab his gun. He didn’t punch a cop, several times.   
And he didn’t beat up a counter clerk, and then rob a store, get high on pot, and then brazenly walk down the middle of a city street, on the yellow divider line, while holding his stolen goods in his hand, for all to see.

Why is Wilson’s life changed so irrevocably now, …because of the long string of conscious, and bad, decisions, …made by another??

Did Michael Brown deserve to die? Perhaps not.

But he was a casualty of his own, self-created circumstances, …and he paid the ultimate, horrible, but also self-made consequences, …for those actions.
There is no racism her. just a clash of cultures.

The culture of the entitlement of me and only me, 0f us and only us, always play the role of victim, always blame somebody else, no respect for authority, no thought for propriety whatsoever, no thought for the future, do whatever you want, whenever you want to, .

…clashing against a culture a guy just trying to do his job, …which he loved, …protecting his community, …which he also loved.

And who gets the blame ?

Has to be the authority figure with a real job, who has a sincere passion for it, and for helping others, …right? The definition of Irony.

Unfortunately, in the American Black community, as a matter of daily routine, that’s the sad Standard Operational Procedure!

How have they let themselves deteriorate to this sordid and pathetic level? Why have they rejected every chance, and every opportunity afforded them, and yes, even given to them at great cost in so many cases?

Is there still racism and bigotry in the U.S. ? Of course.

But is it worse for Blacks today, than for Hispanics, many Asians, and even still, for Jews?? I think not.

There are some things that Blacks don’t have, …which the other, more productive and successful minorities do. And too often by their own choosing, or merely, by becoming too easily settling for their own situation, and way too comfortable with having the government care for their every need.

Education, …for one. Either because they are unwilling, or think it’s too hard, or just don’t believe it’s worth it, …education in the inner cities, and too many other Black communities, …just does not have the priority it should.

Are the schools bad in many of these areas? Yes, too many are.

But if you really want an education, it’s there for the taking, in some form. Just ask Dr. Ben Carson, a recently retired black man, who was the best pediatric neuro-surgeon in the world, from Johns Hopkins.

No one grew up in worse circumstances, nor in worse poverty. And no one, …black, white, nor green, …ever succeeded to a higher level than he did. Only takes the smallest bit of influence, from a strong adult figure. Just ask Ben, about his Mom.

Speaking of Family Influence, …Fathers are tragically, and much too frequently, absent from daily life in millions of Black American families in this country. And many times, …so are mothers.

Those who do watch over the kids (parents, or otherwise), …instead of trying to move away from the non-productively comfortable, generation after generation, welfare mentality, coupled with an inner city lifestyle closely associated with drugs and crime, …they embrace all of that, mainly as a path of least resistance.

This leads to a rejecting of authority of all kinds, …parents, teachers, police, etc., whom they blame for “holding them down”, instead of turning to them for help.

And sadly, this leads to a lack of passion for anything, especially in the area of work ethic, which puts them even further behind.

Why have educated, hard-working Black Americans allowed these conditions to continue? Why have we all not worked harder to rid the country of this blight?

Every ethnic group which has come to America, since the 1860s, has quickly passed Black Americans by, …economically, politically, and socially.

Why is that???

And instead of meaningful plans for change, or some method to move past the history, of which we are all so well aware, …all we hear today is excuses, and threats, harsh epithets, and accusations. And hands out, for “reparations.”

The diversity that has always been the standard in this country, although often not completely fulfilled, …now includes all comers. And if you can’t see that, or can’t find those opportunities, then you either aren’t looking, …or you don’t want to look.

Is it still tough, even seemingly prohibitive, sometimes? Absolutely. But is it now doable, to succeed in life, or at least make your life better, in some way shape, or fashion?

Believe it. Our government sees to that, and levels all playing fields, …for better, …or for worse.

Color, ethnicity, gender, and other minority designations, are no longer an issue, as long as one performs, can be trusted, and has a work ethic. Just look around, …and stop listening to the media on this, and to the “for profit” race mongers and baiters.
Some people, and cultures, will always try to keep others down, and there are “bad actors” in all walks of life. But these days, they will be the ones who lose, and not the ones they discriminate against. You just have to try, even a little, …and walk away from the ignorance.

I believe it was John Wayne that said: "Life is tough, but it is a lot tougher if yor're stupid !!

Michael Brown was a low-life thug, who happened to be Black. His own criminal actions led to his sad fate, …nothing more, nothing less.

Darren Wilson was a consummate, professional police officer, who happens to be White. He was just doing his job, when the mindless actions of another, caused him to lose that job (the only one he ever wanted), …nothing more, nothing less.

Now they’re both gone from Ferguson, …one good and productive,and  one not.

Somehow, …that doesn’t seem to balance.

From Joe and Thanks. This Says It All


A REALLY different reason for loving Obama.

Thanks to Bill S. for getting this piece to the "Corner"  This elderly conservative woman brings an interesting slant to why we might have some reason to be thankful for his Presidency.  I  personally have never found any reason to have anything but disgust and contempt for the incompetent bullshitter....but, now I have to reconsider !!!!


This 82-year-old author loves Obama and she may have a very good point. She says that Obama is amazing, and is rebuilding the American dream!

She gives us an entirely new point of view on the "amazing" job Obama is doing, and
she says that she will thank God for the President. Keep reading for her
additional comments and an explanation.  When discussing Obama, she says:


1. Obama destroyed the Clinton Political Machine, driving a stake through
the heart of Hillary's presidential aspirations - something no Republican
was ever able to do.


2. Obama killed off the Kennedy Dynasty - no more Kennedys trolling
Washington looking for booze and women wanting rides home.


3. Obama is destroying the Democratic Party before our eyes! Dennis Moore had never lost a race. Evan Bayh had never lost a race. Byron
Dorgan had never lost a race. Harry Reid - soon to be GONE! These are
just a handful of the Democrats whose political careers Obama has
destroyed. By the end of 2014, dozens more will be gone. Just think, in
December of 2008 the Democrats were on the rise. In two election
cycles, they had picked up 14 Senate seats and 52 House seats. The press
was touting the death of the Conservative Movement and the Republican
Party. However, in just one year, Obama put a stop to all of this and
gave the House and the Senate - back to the Republicans.


4. Obama has completely exposed liberals and progressives for what they
are. Sadly, every generation seems to need to re-learn the lesson on why
they should never actually put liberals in charge. Obama is bringing home
the lesson very well: Liberals tax, borrow and spend. Liberals won't bring
themselves to protect America. Liberals want to take over the economy.
Liberals think they know what is best for everyone. Liberals are not happy
until they are running YOUR life.


5. Obama has brought more Americans back to conservatism than anyone
since Reagan. In one year, he has rejuvenated the Conservative Movement
and brought out to the streets millions of freedom loving Americans. Name
one other time when you saw your friends and neighbors this interested in
taking back America!


6. Obama, with his "amazing leadership," has sparked the greatest period
of sales of firearms and ammunition this country has seen. Law abiding
citizens have rallied and have provided a "stimulus" to the sporting goods
field while other industries have failed, faded, or moved off-shore.


7. In all honesty, one year ago I was more afraid than I have been in my
life. Not afraid of the economy, but afraid of the direction our country
was going. I thought, Americans have forgotten what this country is all
about. My neighbors and friends, even strangers, have proved to me that
my lack of confidence in the greatness and wisdom of the American people
has been flat wrong.


8. When the American people wake up, no smooth talking teleprompter
reader can fool them! Barack Obama has served to wake up these great
Americans! Again, I want to say: "Thank you, Barack Obama!" After all,
this is exactly the kind of hope and change we desperately needed!!


9. He made Jimmy Carter happy since Jimmy is no longer the worst
president we've ever had.

Parting shot by Erick Holder

As a parting shot before leaving the Obama Administration Eric Holder just announced another Presidential Executive Order from the Attorney General's office.

The order explains why there will be no prosecution of Ferguson, MO looters.  The Justice
Department has classified them as "UNDOCUMENTED SHOPPERS".

An analysis of the businesses that were looted in Ferguson has determined that businesses that sold the following items were ignored in thefts:  Pens, pencils,books, resume kits, work boots, work gloves, work coveralls and father's day cards.


Just in case you know anyone who gives a damn...

....and has the brains to do a little math and fundamental conjecture, and, understand what happens when our electorate puts someone in the Oval offices that does not have even a freshman's understanding of a beginning economics class.

Everyone knows that the US has an entitlement-driven spending problem, but very few people understand the true nature of the situation, which is actually quite dire, looming up ahead of us. In less than 10 years, at current debt projection growth rates, the third-largest expenditure of the United States government will be interest expense. The other three largest categories are all entitlement programs. Discretionary spending, whether for defense or anything else, is becoming an ever-smaller part of the budget. Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid now command nearly two-thirds of the national budget and rising. Ironically, polls suggest that 80% of Americans are concerned about the rising deficit and debt, but 69% oppose Medicare cutbacks, and 78% oppose Medicaid cutbacks.

How stupid is this???   It is exactly like the dumbshit that keeps pounding his head against the wall thinking that it will feel so good if he ever stops.

At some point in the middle of the next decade, entitlement spending plus interest payments will be more than the total revenue of the government. The deficit that we are currently experiencing will explode. The following chart is what will happen if nothing changes. But this chart also cannot happen, because the bond market and the economy will simply implode before it does.



JUST READ THE NUMBERS!   AND THEY KEEP GETTING WORSE.   The only reason we are in this situation is the Liberals can't read, judge or do simple mathematics.

That sound you’re hearing from across the Pacific is the Chinese rulers and Beijing laughing at us.

Obama Just Got Punked by the Chinese: They Won’t Honor New Climate Change Deal !  The price you pay when you go to a cockfight carrying a duck.

Portrait of Stephen Moore

Stephen Moore, who formerly wrote on the economy and public policy for The Wall Street Journal, is chief economist at The Heritage Foundation.

That sound you’re hearing from across the Pacific is the Chinese rulers and Beijing laughing at us.
"President Obama and the “green” lobby actually think China is going to honor the new U.S.-China climate-change agreement that pushes both nations to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions over the next 15 years.
China agreed to a “target” of deriving 20 percent of its energy needs from renewable resources “around” 2030. In exchange, Obama agreed that American families and businesses will aim to reduce carbon-dioxide emissions by at least 26 percent by 2025 from 2005 levels.
This is not a planet-saving climate-change pact. Rather, this plan represents unilateral economic disarmament by the United States as Beijing continues its quest to replace America as the globe’s economic superpower."

If You Put Obama’s Narcissism Aside … What Do You Have? -

"it’s one thing to change your mind – Barack Obama doesn’t  have a monopoly on that — but it’s quite another to do it so seamlessly, without so much as a nod to the fact that, well, you changed your mind! It takes a special kind of politician to say the kinds of things Barack Obama says without a hint of embarrassment. Which brings us to one more stop along memory lane. On June 3, 2008, after his final primary battle, Obama told an adoring rally in St. Paul, Minnesota the following:

“I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on earth.”

His acolytes told him he was  messiah.  
 But he already knew that. And so, if you put his narcissism aside … you have nothing left."

Hillary’s Problem: America Hates 3rd Terms –

This is a good little history lesson.....

Obama's Illegal Amnesty Combines with ObamaCare and Will Force More Layoffs.

Obama's amnesty for illegal immigrants will produce a disaster of unparalleled magnitude when the ObamaCare employer mandate kicks in.  If there was ever a perfect example of the idiocy of the fractured healthcare power grab designed and installed by dumb cheats and , liars wrapped in the liberal cloak of stupidity, this is it. 
Here is an explanation of how the combination of the immigration "worker forgiveness" will play out in the reality of our free economic system.  This is what happens when you take a totally empty shirted, inexperienced college professor who had NEVER held a job....and put him in charge of the worlds largest free economy.  Lord protect us ...any way you can !!!
F.

Those granted amnesty will not be eligible for ObamaCare. The amnesty will merely keep them safe from deportation. It won’t make them legal. And ObamaCare can only go to citizens and legal noncitizens living in the U.S.

But the employer mandate in ObamaCare requires large companies to offer insurance to each of their full time workers or pay a hefty fine to the government for failing to do so.

Combine these two programs and you have a huge incentive for employers to dismiss any blue collar workers on their payroll and replace them with illegal immigrants covered by amnesty. These folks are allowed to work but not to get ObamaCare. An employer can’t be fined for failing to offer ObamaCare to employees who are ineligible to receive it!

An employer’s dream!

Some argue that the anti-discrimination provisions of ObamaCare will bar employers from offering insurance to some of their workers (citizens and legal immigrants) and not to others (illegal immigrants). That argument seems farfetched since the illegal immigrants cannot enroll in ObamaCare.

But, even if the argument holds water, what is to prevent an employer from simply refusing to insure any of his workers at all? Then he could replace the citizens and legal immigrants on his payroll with illegal immigrants (legal to work but not to get ObamaCare). He couldn’t be fined for not insuring a workforce that cannot accept the insurance!

By creating a pool of work-legal/ObamaCare-illegal workers, Obama will make the incentive to replace citizens with illegal immigrants practically irresistible.

(My thanks to Dennis M. Lynch, documentary filmmaker, for alerting me to this situation).

As Democrats bemoan the loss of blue collar whites who voted with Republicans in the midterm elections, wait til the now amnesty/ObamaCare mandate combo kicks in. You ain’t seen nothin’ yet!

As the 2016 elections approach, this conflict between amnesty and the employer mandate will likely become a major campaign issue. It calls into question the two hallmarks of the Obama presidency and puts them on a collision course. Even the strongest defenders of either policy have to concede the problem and come up with solutions. But they may be hard to come by.

Obama cannot solve the problem by giving illegal immigrants legal status by executive order. If he felt he could, he would have done so already in his huge executive power overreach. And Congress is not likely to cooperate in changing the employer mandate or in making the newly amnestied immigrants eligible for ObamaCare. Republicans will be more inclined to let the Democrats stew in the brew they have concocted.

The dimensions of this problem are enormous. One wonders if any of Obama’s crew spotted it during the run-up to his executive order. It is hard to imagine President Clinton failing to notice such a conflict between his two major programs.

Already, the Center for Immigration Studies points out that the Census Bureau figures indicate that three out of four new jobs created under Obama’s tenure have gone to non-native born Americans (a category the Census says covers legal immigrants, illegal ones, and naturalized US citizens). Out of eight million new jobs created since 2008, six million have gone to people who are not native born American citizens. Now, the desire of employers to find a way out from under the expensive mandate in ObamaCare will accelerate the process. It will be a great line to feature on your resume that you came here illegally and are not eligible for ObamaCare. It will go a long way toward guaranteeing a job.

Hagel Paid for Obama's Confusion

Poor Hagel didn't have a chance.  The confirmation hearing over a year ago for
Hagel was a perfect storm.  Those hearings did a pretty good job of disclosing the inadequacies of the nominee, but as tradition dictates the majority party and and the predisposition to let a President pick his team was followed.  This set us up for a perfect storm. An inexperienced, untested, incompetent President who already knew that he was way over his head in the need for leadership thought that if he put a Republican combat veteran Senator in as Sec. of Defense he would appear to be doing something clever.....plus, he would have  another puppet on his strings.  Unfortunately for Hagel the meddlesome antics of an unprepared Commander-in-Chief created a friction that ended in the firing.  Unable to coordinate an effective military response to our diminishing military power something had to give.  

Don't feel too sorry for Hagel.   He is now retiring with full pay and benefits for the rest of his and his wife's life.

Excerpt from Bloomberg:

"Spare a moment of pity for Chuck Hagel. Beginning with his humiliating confirmation hearings to be U.S. secretary of defense last year through last week's embarrassing revelations about the state of the U.S. nuclear arsenal, the ex-sergeant and senator always seemed in over his head.
That said, Hagel was as much of a victim of the White House's contradictory military policies as of his own weaknesses. Last week's report that the Pentagon will have a far more active role in Afghanistan next year than had been planned -- including stepped-up use of ground troops, jets, drones and night missions -- was a manifestation of a tension that is threatening to overwhelm Barack Obama's foreign policy in the last two years of his presidency: how to fight Islamic extremism in Afghanistan and Iraq while also fulfilling his vow to end both wars.
These goals are not necessarily mutually exclusive -- the long fight against global terrorism is both more and less than a ground war in a particular country -- but something has to give. Or rather, two somethings: the White House's unwieldy pledges to not deploy ground troops in Iraq and to withdraw all U.S. forces from Afghanistan by the end of 2016."

For some undocumented immigrants, Obama’s executive action doesn’t change anything

Obama's salvo of his constitutional breach on immigration is only his beginning.  If he can do this and get by with it, it is only a matter of time when he begins to open the gates further for millions more.  He may want a brass plaque in hero hall...but it will not hang in the USA.   It will be an honored shrine in Mexico, Salvador, Guatemala, etc.

GRUBER HAS BEEN OBAMA ADVISER FOR MORE THAN EIGHT YEARS

President Barack Obama and a long list of Democrats are now arguing that MIT economist Jonathan Gruber wasn’t intimately involved in writing Obamacare, but yet another video shows Obama admitting that he’s “stolen ideas” from Jon Gruber himself — “liberally.” 

Obama spoke at the Brookings Institution in a video posted by the conservative group American Commitment on Monday. The president was touting his policy ideas, which stemmed from what he called some of the “brightest minds from academia and policy circles.”… Gruber advised Obama’s first campaign in 2006 and went to the White House at least a dozen times while Obama’s been in office, in addition to receiving an almost $400,000 contract to advise on the health-care law.” Watch the American Commitment video clip here.

OBAMA NOT BUDGING ON PIPELINE. There is no vaccine for STUPID!!

President Obama would not budge from the “dim” view his administration has of a legislative push on the Keystone pipeline approved by the House or Rep. today.

At a press conference in Burma, the president said he wants to let a review process – now in its sixth year - run its course. Pressed by Republican leadership to state where he stands, Obama said his administration believes the project should be judged on the basis of whether it accelerates climate change. 

In his arrogant stupidity Obama also insisted the pipeline would not be a “massive jobs bill” and would have no effect on U.S. gas prices.  Amazing that, in the face of overwhelming evidence to the opposite, he remains intransigent as well as mired in a swamp of stupidity.

Senate Republicans and several moderate Democrats have pushed for the project to be approved for years. Supporters say the construction of the pipeline would create tens of thousands of jobs. But the project divides Democrats, with environmentalists in opposition while some unions as well as energy-state and business-minded lawmakers support it. The Senate is expected to hold a vote on the pipeline Tuesday. 

"If I Were The Devil"

Most of you will recall the first radio talk show/news journalist Paul Harvey.  He was a famous
commentator for ABC radio  Paul died at age of 90 in 2008.  He was known for his closing statement of each news broadcast which was usually a short monologue re: current problems of the day.
Below you can hear his radio broadcast on April 3, 1965.
Millions of Americans listened to his programs which were broadcast to over 1,200 radio stations nationwide. This one is known as the "If I were the Devil" commentary.  Pretty prophetic, and pretty scaryl

Fred's Note:   
"This piece sent by Bill O. a Corner buddy in Georgia and we thank him.   As I read through them I just picked one, pretty much at random, to look at its authenticity...It really turned out to be an ass-burner!!  It is probably a pretty good example of the shit that OUR governmental representatives do to take care of themselves and to hell with the people that pay them and put them there, while trusting them to SERVE us.  After you cruise the Ryan list take a look at the piece I dug out with a little research.  If it does not piss you off, you are not batting from the correct side of the plate."

"In addition to whatever else the House jammed into last-minute legislation that would (barely) keep the government open, the Housevoted this morning to give a $174,000 gift to the widow of Sen. Frank Lautenberg. While we join Vice President Biden in offering our condolences to Mrs. Lautenberg and her family, why is the government throwing money at a multimillionaire? Sen. Lautenberg’s assets exceeded $57 million in 2011. How is this a top funding need?"
