Under Barack Obama, "It's a Madhouse!"



There's a scene from the original (1968) film Planet of the Apes that captures the pith of what's happening to our country under Obama. It's the scene where the gorilla Jailer turns a high-pressure fire hose on the caged Taylor (Charlton Heston) who roars, "It's a Madhouse! A Madhouse!"

Obama is recklessly shrinking our military while threats are rising, and the threats are coming from enemies he enabled or emboldened!

Consider the Islamic State, and how it conveniently filled the power vacuum he created. Conflate that with the intelligence community going on record to say the administration ignored its assessments then cooked the books!

Next, think about that legacy-seeking deal Obama negotiated with Iran, which makes no secret of its desire to acquire nuclear weapons -- at the same time its ruler is leading "Death to America!" chants.

Factor in the hundreds of "refugees" a week now flooding into the U.S. along with Obama's de facto Catch-and-Release Open Borders (illegal) immigration policy, and what we have now is "a Madhouse!"

We're a terrorist attack away from "Shelter-in-Place" again, and yet Obama talks about climate change, goes golfing or does fundraisers!

As I said, it's a MADHOUSE.

Trumpet player Gerard Presencer and the Us3 song "Cantaloop (Flip Fantasia)"


Gerard Presencer

Trumpet player Gerard Presencer, featured soloist on Blue Note's biggest-selling release of the 1990s, talks about his performance on Us3's Cantaloop (Flip Fantasia):

[Quoting] I was 18 or maybe 17 at the time I did that, but I wasn't playing with DJs. I was playing mostly gigs in London on the jazz scene. Us3 knew me by reputation as a trumpet soloist. When I was 15 or 16, I started to play with the Brand New Heavies and on recordings for other acid-jazz groups. I'm on quite a lot of recordings in the early '90s, like with Jamiroquai, Corduroy, and Mother Earth. There were loads of them. I got to play lots of solos on those records, which is probably actually why Us3 got in touch. [Producers Geoff Wilkinson and Mel Simpson] asked me if I've heard of Freddie Hubbard, and at that point, I don't think I was listening to anyone else. [Laughs.] So I just played in the style of Freddie a little bit, but also I think it sounds like me -- but it's obvious I love Freddie. Other than that, they didn't give me much instruction at all, actually, and it was a very quick session. [End quote]

The trumpet player in the 'emimusic'-uploaded YouTube music video isn't Gerard Presencer. Billboard's Gina van der Vliet spoke with producer Geoff Wilkinson about the making of that video in a 1997 article 'Us3 Takes A Walk Down Oldham's Video Runway' [p. 102].

Producer Geoff Wilkinson on Us3's surprise success: "I always thought there was a huge potential audience for jazz amongst younger people, and I wanted Us3 to be a point of access for them. By sampling classic jazz tracks, mixing them with beats and raps, and having younger jazz cats playing on top I was acknowledging the past, staying rooted in the present, and looking forward to the future, all at the same time." ← Amen to that :)

Us3's Cantaloop (Flip Fantasia) contains samples of 5 songs...

Gerard Presencer's bio

Of course, the Us3 song was inspired by the original and wonderful "Cantaloupe Island" by American jazz pianist Herbie Hancock from his epic 1964 'Empyrean Isles' album which also features musicians Freddie Hubbard, Ron Carter and Tony Williams. Enjoy!

In referencing 9/11, Hillary Clinton is a LIAR


Image Credit
Update: Benghazi victim's mom: Hillary needs to tell me the truth!

In referencing 9/11, ‎Hillary Clinton is a LIAR when she flatly states, "At no other time were those tragedies politicized."

Hillary Clinton has politicized 9/11 many times, perhaps the most egregious instance occurring in 2006 when, as a New York Senator, she made the shocking claim -- contradicting the 9/11 Commission Report -- that her husband and his national security team never saw the Presidential Daily Brief (PDB) specifically titled "Bin Ladin [sic] Preparing to Hijack US Aircraft and Other Attacks" -- a daily brief that President William J. Clinton received on December 4, 1998, more than two years before the 9/11 terrorist attacks occurred!

Talk about Hillary being a loathsome liar...

Applying football jargon to the smash-mouth world of politics...

Face it: the so-called Republican Party leaders "heard footsteps" and flinched.


When I played football when I was younger, my dad told me about players who "heard footsteps," i.e., players who wouldn't or couldn't catch the ball over the middle because they feared the imminent hit. My dad said, "You're going to get hit anyway whether you catch the ball or not SO WHY NOT CATCH IT?!" His advice made sense, and it wasn't just for receivers, but for those who run the ball, so I used it to my advantage.

Sure, you can try to evade tacklers but when you know contact is inevitable, why not be the one delivering the punishing blow? Why not be the one imposing YOUR will upon others? That's why I admired Earl Campbell and Eric Dickerson, and The Great Jim Brown, who played before my time. I bring all this up to apply it in a political context.

No matter what, the GOP was going to get hit by the Obama regime, the Democrat Party AND so-called mainstream media -- they all share the same talking points. We know that. Yet, mush Republicans and RINOs STILL tried to appease Obama because they feared being hit. What cowards!


When it came time to leverage the TWO HISTORIC LANDSLIDE WIN MID-TERMS of 2010 and 2014, they put their political lives and their ruling-cla$$ power ahead of what was best for America. And in the process, in the meantime, their abandonment of us and their duties as Opposition Party caused our country undeniable damage.

And these so-called Republican "leaders" wonder why so many Americans are outraged? Give me a break! As far as I'm concerned, they and the Obama administration cronies they kowtowed to are all partners in crime. They are all thick as thieves. To Hell with Boehner, McConnell, and other Republicans who did not stand in Obama's way and stop his agenda. They are complicit in Obama's crimes and just as guilty. History will not look kindly at their unceasing capitulation to a lawless administration.

PS- The crying yes-man was duped (again). Boehner shouldn't put any stock in Obama calling him a "patriot". We're talking about a prez who doesn't know the first thing about being one.
