Because Obama is a Christian, right?

President Obama went to Cairo and encouraged the people to rise up and call for freedom in 2009. They did. President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton fully backed the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and demanded that the secular, moderate Muslims, and Christian Egyptians include the Muslim Brotherhood in their government despite their reluctance.

Obama and Clinton even took credit for it on 60 Minutes.

President Obama and Secretary Clinton who urge us to read Al Jazeera, the terrorist news outlet, assured us the Brotherhood were ‘moderates’ though they are in fact the front group and the father of Al Qaeda, Hamas, and others.

Even as the Brotherhood assaulted Christians and Muslim minorities as they took over the government, and as they threatened Israel, Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton Supported the Brotherhood.

After Morsi’s removal, they condemned the ouster and attempted to bully the Egyptian army into reinstating the dictator.

The Brotherhood were great admirers of Adolf Hitler in WWII but allegedly swore off violence and tried to pass themselves off as a political party when in fact they are a state within a state, determined to establish caliphates throughout the world.

The Muslim Brotherhood said that they would not seek office but did. Morsi became president after a banana Republic style run-off election, then spent a year converting Egypt into a dictatorship, worse in many ways than the one Egyptians fought against.

After Egyptians in the tens of millions took to the streets demanding the army oust Morsi and finally succeeded, the Islamists, led by the now outlawed Brotherhood, swore revenge on all Christians.

As in Syria, Islamists are threatening, forcing conversions, and murdering Christians in a genocide ignored by the world.

The Pope wants peace and talks and is roundly criticized for it, however, Mr. Obama has expressed no interest in the plight facing Christians though he himself claims to be one.

The Brotherhood he supports has even moved into Syria and is forcing conversions, terrorizing and slaughtering Christians under the banner of the ‘moderate’ rebels.

There is a town in South Egypt – Dalga – that has been taken over by Morsi supporters.

Priests are watched by the Muslim Brotherhood now in charge, their ancient monastery was burned to the ground and looted. The church was destroyed and the remains of saints were desecrated. Christian homes and churches were ransacked in this town with a population of 120,000 which includes 20,000 Christians.

Get over there and read the rest.  It seems that wherever there are Christians being killed, Obama is there…supporting those that are doing the killing and persecuting.

Since the financial collapse brought on by the housing bubble and the casino playing Too Big To Fail banks in 2008, many of us in the blogosphere put the blame government policies, which pumped air into the sub-prime mortgage market. The government of Barak Obama, of course, put the blame entirely on the Wall Street bankers and the unfunded wars of Bush II. Now, nearly five years later, the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) finished their review of what happened and puts the blame squarely on the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA). You are unlikely to hear about the NBER report from the MSM because it doesn’t fit with their liberal feel good agenda. But, paul Sperry at Investors.Com shares the news:

Democrats and the media insist the Community Reinvestment Act, the anti-redlining law beefed up by President Clinton, had nothing to do with the subprime mortgage crisis and recession.

But a new study by the respected National Bureau of Economic Research finds, “Yes, it did. We find that adherence to that act led to riskier lending by banks.”

The Community Reinvestmentt Act was the brain child of Mr. Feel Good himself, President Jimmy Carter. But, like most things associated with Carter, nothing much happened. Presidents Reagan and Bush I also managed to keep a lid on CRA; but unfortunately, they didn’t kill it. Then came Mr. I Feel Your Pain, President Bill Clinton, and he with the help of the likes of Barney Frank had Fanny and Freddy put the CRA on steroids. Take a look at this graph:

 
And then there is this:

The strongest link between CRA lending and defaults took place in the runup to the crisis — 2004 to 2006 — when banks rapidly sold CRA mortgages for securitization by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and Wall Street.

CRA regulations are at the core of Fannie’s and Freddie’s so-called affordable housing mission. In the early 1990s, a Democrat Congress gave HUD the authority to set and enforce (through fines) CRA-grade loan quotas at Fannie and Freddie.

It passed a law requiring the government-backed agencies to “assist insured depository institutions to meet their obligations under the (CRA).” The goal was to help banks meet lending quotas by buying their CRA loans.

But they had to loosen underwriting standards to do it. And that’s what they did.

“We want your CRA loans because they help us meet our housing goals,” Fannie Vice Chair Jamie Gorelick beseeched lenders gathered at a banking conference in 2000, just after HUD hiked the mortgage giant’s affordable housing quotas to 50% and pressed it to buy more CRA-eligible loans to help meet those new targets. “We will buy them from your portfolios or package them into securities.”

{…}

Housing analysts say the CRA is the central thread running through the subprime scandal — from banks and subprime lenders to Fannie and Freddie to even Wall Street firms that took most of the heat for the crisis.

And, this little tid bit is interesting:

Banks that didn’t meet Clinton’s tough new numerical lending targets were denied merger plans, among other penalties. CRA shakedown groups like Acorn held hostage the merger plans of banks like Citibank and Washington Mutual until they pledged more loans to credit-poor minorities.

Even if Obama and friends refuse to admit the role of CRA in the Great Recession, one would think they would be very prudent about continuing to push for more sub-prime mortgages. One would be wrong!

Obama officials, who are cracking the CRA whip anew against banks, insist the law played no role in the mortgage meltdown.

“CRA loans performed substantially better than subprime loans, and the CRA has been around for decades,” argued senior Justice Department official Thomas Perez.

Yes, the same Thomas Perez that is now Obama’s nomination for Secretary of Labor.

It truly is an asylum in which we live. Reagan was right. Government isn’t the solution; it is the problem.

Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your  thoughts?

The Benghazi Fiasco. Why? Why? WHY?!!!

Share

Nearly eight weeks after the Benghazi fiasco on September 11, 2912 and we have no answers. All we have are questions. WHY?

The answer obviously is this administration, this President, this Commander-in-Chief refuses to tell us what happened and why. And, apart from Fox News, the rest of the media has treated the Benghazi attack the killed an US ambassador for the first time in thirty years and three other Americans as a non-event. WHY?

We are left to surmise that President Obama wanted to keep a lid on things until after the election when supposedly he could be more flexible. And, of course, the Left Stream Media was complicit.

Lack of Security Prior to the Attack

Without  rehashing all the information that has come out since the attack, let me give a short review. We know from e-mail leaks and other sources reported by Fox News that   the Ambassador and others had reported heightened activity of militants in Benghazi including an attack on the British Consulate and our own consulate. We know our Ambassador was worried about the lack of security and made requests to improve the security. We know after the fact that those requests were denied. Worse yet, not only were the requests for additional security denied, we learned that five weeks before the attack the sixteen man security force under Lt. Col. Andy Wood was ordered out of Libya against his recommendation to the contrary. Why? We know that in House Oversight Committee hearing that Congressman Darrel Issa asked Charlene Lamb,, the head of Diplomatic Security Services, about the lack of security in Benghazi. Ms. Lamb responded that they had the “correct level”  of security. When Issa went off on her for that answer, she then said that the Benghazi Consulate had the “approved level” of security. The approved level? Who decided that essentially no security  was the “approved or correct level”? Why?

America’s Non-Response to Americans Under Attack

Thanks to so far unidentified whistle  blowers we know that the White House and all the upper echelons of our government were in voice communications with the people at the CIA annex from the within minutes of the attack beginning until it ended seven hours later. We also know they had real-time visual of the attack via our drones in Benghazi. We know that two ex-Navy Seals wanted to go to the aid of the Ambassador immediately but were told to stand down. By whom? Why?We know that an hour later our two ex-Navy Seals disobayed a second order to stand down. We know that they fought their way into the Consulate and saved many people there, but they could not find the Ambassador. With the rescued people from the Consulate, they fought their way back to the CIA annex and defended the annex for another six hours before being killed by a mortar round. We know they asked for reinforcements and air support but none came. Why? We know that we had special force teams ready to go to the aid of our people in Benghazi but they were not sent. We know that General Ham had a team ready to send to Benghazi but he said he never received the order. Why?

The Shame Gets Worse

If you missed this Fox News story on Friday, please consider it a must read. There is a lot of disturbing information in this article. But, it is this that is tearing my guts apart:

British intelligence sources said that unarmed drones routinely flew over Benghazi every night in flight patterns and that armed drones which fly over chemical sites, some a short flight from Benghazi, “were always said to be on call.” American sources confirmed this and questioned “why was a drone armed only with a camera dispatched?”

There were armed drones in the Benghazi area and we didn’t use to protect our people. Why? Why? WHY?!!!  And, there is more:

British sources on the ground in Benghazi said they are extremely frustrated by the attack and are still wondering why they weren’t called for help. “We have more people on the ground here than the Americans and I just don’t know why we didn’t get the call?” one said.

Both American and British sources said, at the very least, the security situation on the ground and the lack of proper response were the result of “complete incompetence.”…

So, let’s recap this fiasco in Benghazi, Libya that cost the lives of our Ambassador and three other brave Americans. Our government under the “leadership” of Barack Obama intentionally provided no security to the “Diplomatic Mission” in one of the most dangerous areas in the world. Then when the Mission comes under attack, in spite of having a multitude of options to come to the aid of our people, our government under Barack Obama decides to do nothing. Why?!!!

The story that is picking up steam is that our President was illegally running gums being bought and/or collected from militant groups in Libya and sending to dissidents in Syria via Turkey. Is this what the President is trying to cover up? Does Obama have his very own “Iran-Contra” affair going on? Is that why for two weeks after the attacks, even though we now know they had all of facts, the President, the Secretary of the UN, and the Secretary of State tried to convince America and the world that the attack was a spontaneous reaction to a video insulting to Islam? This is why our Mission in Benghazi had no security and why no aid was given after the attack began? Is the average American on Main Street as OUTRAGED as I am? I am outraged this piss poor excuse for a human being could even consider asking the American people to give him a second term. Why?

Well, now you know what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?

How can we Tell That the Obama Campaign is in Panic Mode?

Share

There are some subtle, or not so subtle, signs that the Obama campaign is in panic mode.  Two stories covered that today.  The first is from Da Tech Guy…

I have been telling you for a while that the best way to determine what is happening is what people are saying, vs what people are doing.

Yesterday I was listening to Rush on a Minnesota radio station because all the local stations were all Sandy all the time and what did to my wondering eyes did appear but news of Bill Clinton going right there.

Now let’s be clear, There is the president, there is VP and there is Bill Clinton, these are the big guns for the Democrats and are not deployed lightly.

You are sending the single most valuable non-office asset the Democrats have to Minnesota? Not Colorado? Not Nevada, not Wisconsin, not Iowa, not Virginia but MINNESOTA?

How on earth do you justify this move with a week to go unless Obama is in trouble there and if Obama is in trouble in Minnesota then….

In other words, Obama is being forced to switch resources from battleground states, to traditional blue states, which she should already have in he bag.

But he doesn’t?

Stacey McCain also has commentary based in truth…

Yesterday, Jim Messina called the Romney super-PAC’s ad buy in Pennsylvania “desperate.”

Today? Yeah, Obama’s buying ads in Pennsylvania.

Does this mean Romney is going to win Pennsylvania? No, but it does mean that it’s close enough that Team Obama couldn’t afford to let Romney air ads unopposed in Pennsylvania. And this news, coming just four days after it was reported that Team Obama is buying ads in Minnesota, is the best indication that Democrat insiders know that the president’s re-election is seriously endangered.

Again, it seems that team Obama are forced to spread themselves thinner than they wanted. If they have to devote money or manpower to places that that should have wrapped up, not only does it mean that they are potentially losing those states, but it takes resources away from states that they need to fight Romney vigorously.  In other words, they are robbing Peter to pay Paul, and as a result, may lose it all.  Hence, panic mode might be setting in.

Thinking About Paul Ryan’s Budget: 2012 Our Last Chance to Stop Collapse?

Share

John Hinderaker of Powerlineblog had lunch this week with Representative Paul Ryan (Republican) and got a chance to talk with him regarding his fully written and complete budget proposal. Here is how John summarizes Representative Ryan’sapproach to his budget:

The United States has a brief time remaining when we can solve our budgetary crisis without drastic measures. Soon, our debt to GDP ratio will inhibit economic growth, the sheer magnitude of the debt will overwhelm efforts to get it under control, and rising interest rates will crush all other budgetary considerations. For now, we have an opportunity to solve the fiscal crisis without, for example, having to cutSocial Security and Medicare benefits to existing seniors. This is what theHouse Republican budget seeks to do. But that window is rapidly closing.

You can read the rest of the post if you’d like, but let’s pause here and really think about the various points that Representative Ryan is making here. There is extensive research and data out there to back almost all of these points up, but I want to touch on a couple points-

  1. Time is powerful. Small changes to entitlement programs implemented right now will be able to add up over long periods of time to change the trajectory of entitlement programs that are projected at some point in the future to go bankrupt. The sooner we implement these changes, the less drastic and radical these changes will be; but if we delay in implementing changes to make these programs solvent, there is the potential that at some point in the future we will not have programs that are 95% of what they are today but rather will have programs that are 0% of what they are today. Based on estimates and projections by everyone, changes to these entitlement programs need to be made- but only Representative Ryan has put together a comprehensive plan to do so that makes those tough changes.
  2. Debt to GDP, rising debt, and rising interest rates will progressively become a greater and greater burden on our nation and will increasingly make it more difficult to implement reforms, pay down debts, shore up entitlement programs, and maintain the quality of life that Americans expect. Every year that we run a deficit makes the situation worse- already we spent more on interest payments on our debt that we do on a range of programs from NASA to museums- and every year we delay in bringing the budget under control only makes it harder to bring the budget under control the next year. President Obama’s budget proposals in 2012, 2011, and 2010 all failed to balance the budget and ran deficits and added to the national debt, making it progressively and increasingly harder to balance the budget in future years.
  3. 2012 is a critical election. With a Republican Congress with solid majorities in both the House and Senate and a Republican President, our nation will have a fleeting opportunity to pass reforms to shore up the deficit and keep Social Security and Medicare for the future. This will mean difficult decisions today- programs will have to be cut back to the bloated levels they were under Bill Clinton and George W. Bush- but those tough decisions today will mean that citizens of the future might have a slight chance at getting some sort of Social Security or Medicare programs and of not being destroyed under a mountain of debt. But if President Obama wins or the Democrats hold the Senate (or even lose the Senate by a vote or two like I project) or somehow the Democrats take back the House, based on past experience (Democrat control of the Senate since 2007, Democrat control of the House from 2007 to 2011, Democrat control of the Presidency since 2009) we can expect no entitlement reform, budgets that continue to pile up debt, and four more years of lost time to deal with the issues. Our nation can’t afford 4 more years- by then interest rates on the debt will be higher and eat up a higher proportion of our budget, inflation will have set in from the expansion of the money supply, entitlement programs will be drained of more and more cash, etc.
This sucks, and it makes me very angry that my parents and grandparents are going to be dropping this on my generation and my children’s generation. Every single dollar that is spent in debt is a dollar that me and my children owe and will have to pay interest on, undermining our national security and quality of living for services and support which we did not receive nor will we expect to receive in the future. This intergenerational theft that is occurring today is immoral and wrong, and any politician from any party who votes for a dime more in debt is party to this (and this includes the Republicans in the past who voted for Bush/Republican deficit-financed budgets from 2001-2007).

The one hope- and it is a slim one- is that in 2012 we can as a nation do the right thing and vote Republican (or Democrat when and if there are any moderate Democrats who also agree with these views and help Paul Ryan pass his bipartisan and moderate budget).

Ryan’s proposal is full of hope and change– hope that we as a nation can still put in place the reforms needed to strengthen programs like Social Security and Medicare and our military, and change in how our nation goes about funding its business. No more can our nation continue to operate in the old Jimmy Carter/Barack Obamaway of raising taxes, talking down business, inflating the money supply, devaluing the currency, making cuts to our military, and refusing to even discuss reforming collapsing entitlement programs.

The moral and responsible thing to do to make sure that future grandparents have in place an income and healthcare safety net is to begin the conversation of taxing and spending policy with Paul Ryan’s budget. To do any less is to close ones eyes, deny reality, and doom to failure the great progress that our nation has made these years in helping the poor, the needy, the weak, and the aged.

As a Republican, I’m glad to see that people like Paul Ryan in the party, fighting for liberty, the rule of law, and conservative economic principles.

NOW Allowed out From Under Bus to Chime in on Fake Birth Control Debate: Why They Have no Credibility Whatsoever

Share

As we continue to be drug along by the birth control distraction from actual economic issues debate, the National Organization of Women, AKA, the Tammies, have been permitted to re-emerge from under the bus the contribute to the debate massive distraction effort.  The President of that organization recently started speaking out spewing propaganda.  CNS News has more…

Roman Catholic bishops and other religious leaders have failed to keep women from using birth control and now want the “police power of the state” to stop women from doing so, National Organization for Women President Terry O’Neill said Thursday at a gathering of feminist activists.

As a result, O’Neill argued, these religious leaders are now “demanding that the government step in and use the force and power and police power of the state to prevent women from taking birth control because the bishops have failed.”

O’Neill’s remarks came in response to a question from CNSNews.com about a large photograph on display at the press conference. It depicted five faith leaders, including a Catholic bishop, who testified at a Feb. 16 House hearinginto the Obama administration’s controversial health insurance mandate.

CNSNews.com noted that Bishop William Lori was the only faith leader–the others were Jewish, Lutheran and Baptist–who opposed all forms of birth control and pointed out that the hearing was about whether the government mandate violated the free exercise of religion.

OK, this is simple.  No one has advocated for banning birth control.  This is only a matter of breaking religions institutions, as well as distracting from bigger issues.   However, by my estimation, the Tammies have no room to complain about anything.  I have several reasons for saying this:

1.  In 2010, I covered the fact that “rape trees” are being found along the border with Mexico.  The idea is simple, and revolting.  People that are “escorting” illegals across the border, tie women and girls to trees, rape them, and  then leave their panties hanging from the tree as a sort of trophy.  Here is the position of the Tammies on this terrible attack on women…

As you can see, they have nothing to say.  I guess leftist causes such as amnesty takes priority over the rape of girls and women.

2.  OWS Rapes and cover up:  As we have covered extensively, there have been a large number of rapes at #Occupy camps.  Also, underage girls were sold as prostitutes on several occasions.  Then, to complicate the matters, victims came forward and said that the “leadership” of the camps discouraged them from reporting the rapes.  So, we have rapes, child molestation, and a coverup.  The response from the Tammies?

Yes, that’s right.  Rapes, molestation, and a cover up.  But, I’m assuming that since OWS is yet another leftist cause, the Tammies decided to over look this as well.

3.  When was the last time that someone from the Tammies testified before Congress, or had a major media blitz over honor killings, or other dehumanizing aspects of Sharia Law?  I looked, but I couldn’t find any (If anyone can find such an incident, kindly drop it in the comment section).   So, I guess birth control and abortion is more important than women being killed?  Apparently so.

Now, let’s contrast that with the front page of the NOW website, as of about 10:00 PM last night…

Click to embiggen.

So, it seems that the Tammies are rather selective in their outrage.  Religious institutions, especially Christian ones, are to be attacked relentlessly.  Marxist rapists, and men who murder women at the behest of their god…not so much.

So, Ms. O’Neill, I really have to suggest that you crawl back under the bus.  Your entire organization lost it’s credibility during the Clinton administration, and it’s done nothing to earn it back.  As long as NOW is selective in it’s outrage, you’ll be seen as nothing more than political operatives.  I can almost respect an organization that is at the very least, consistent with it’s stated beliefs and goals.  NOW is not.  Stop pretending that you are anything more than political hacks.

Mental Disorder Reaches Epidemic Status

Share

Recent research suggests that a common mental disorder in Washington DC is spreading through the US at a staggering rate, leaving the populace mentally feeble and unable to comprehend reality.   The name of the disorder is Do Something-itis, or Do Anything-itis.  The disorder is said to impact the brain in such a way that the patient believes that government intervention can solve problems.   This from Dr. Hiram Lockjaw, senior scientist at the CDC:

These problems used to be contained in the centers of power, academia, media, and law.  Most civilians affected resided in “blue” states.  We use electoral maps to track the progress of the disease.   We started to see an expansion of the illness in 2006, but then, in fall 2008, the disease advanced as never before.  While true numbers may never be known, it is suspected that there are tens of millions citizens infected.

For those of you who use the same math as Nancy Pelosi, or are a recent graduate of a public school, the number is 1,654,986,653,657.  Dr. Lockjaw continued:

The disorder manifests itself in several interesting ways.  One, of course, is the complete denial of being sick. The afflicted tend to state that they believe in “change.”  However, when questioned, the afflicted cannot really state what this “change” is-other than that the aforementioned “change” will “change” the world for the better.  The intelligence of the victim is either low, or is made low by the illness, however we are unclear as to whether or not this is due to exposure to public education.  The other, and perhaps most devastating symptom is the delusion that the government makes things better, not worse.  Victims are rendered incapable of understanding that the Carter and the Clinton administration is to blame for the housing failure, as well as the resulting banking failure.  They also seem to have delusions that spending government money in a random fashion benefiting political cronies will somehow stimulate the economy.

That would explain a lot.  Dr. Lockjaw goes on to explain the course of the disease.

As the disease progresses, the patient will become jealous of anyone who has more money, education, works harder, or otherwise is more succesful than they are. They begin to believe that this is some sort of “unfair” conspiracy directed at them.  They deny any connection between their laziness, pot smoking, or living in their mother’s basement and their current state.  Their physical appearance begins to change as well, eventually looking like…

 

Do Something-itis victimDo Something-itis Victim.Angry Do Something-itis Victim

Needless to say, dear reader, I was alarmed.  What is to stop this disease from overtaking the continent and turning our nation into France?  Luckily, there is a treatment available, according to Dr. Lockjaw:

We have discovered that by exposing to patient to reality, he or she can become a productive member of society.  Having the patient listen to Rush Limbaugh is sometimes effective, however,Jim Quinn or Michael Savage are just as, if not more, effective.  However, our greatest breakthrough is what we have called “Reaganex.”  Reaganex is the most powerful, and most successful treatment we have available at this time.

Well well well, at least one governement agency is doing it’s job.  Oh wait, this is parody!
