A "triple-dog-dare" for those on the political left


In the spirit of the film 'A Christmas Story,' I am "triple-dog-daring" those on the left to thoroughly read through this jaw-dropping list of criminal behavior titled 'President Barack Obama's Complete List of Historic Firsts [Updated]'. Blog post creator Doug Ross has it right: "Yes, he's historic, alright."

Here's the link (in larger font) for those who still haven't clicked on it:
http://directorblue.blogspot.com/2011/06/president-barack-obamas-complete-list.html←Click it... I triple-dog-dare ya!

To complete this throwing down of the gauntlet, those on the left must ask themselves, after reading it, why they would still support such a man. Then again, we already know that many of them will never take the dare because they live in an alternate reality or they're cowards. Or both... and their psyches are fra-gee-lay.


Some have even said that arguing with them is like playing chess with a pigeon, i.e., even after they've been beaten like a drum, they knock over all the pieces, crap on the board and still strut around.

But here's hoping there are some out there on the political left who will use this coming New Year's time of introspection to see the light and recognize the dangerous ruler we have in the White House. It's not too late to get on board -- any newcomers and converts will be heartily welcomed! And it won't be just because they "manned up" for a triple-dog-dare ;)

Mark Levin to Obama: "You’ve been warned!"



Mark Levin weighs in on the arrest threat that Veterans faced when visiting Memorials that Obama's government shutdown "Barrycaded":
I'm going to tell you folks something. I want to say this loud and clear to the people on Capitol Hill who are listening, to this administration -- you lay one damn hand on one of those World War II vets at that memorial, I'll bring half a million people to that damn memorial! You got that?!

I'm sitting here stewing thinking about this. Playing these damn games? You will ignite a movement in this country like you've never seen before. The biker patriot army, veterans from all over the country -- every single war and battle in this country. Republican, Democrat, Independent, whatever!
I'll be damned if one president, with his feet up on the desk in the Oval Office, with his smirk on his face, looking at his golf card. I'll be damned if this president or anybody else is going to shutdown that World War II memorial. Period. 

These men are in their 80s and 90s. So let me repeat. You lay one hand on one of those men and arrest them for going to their memorial, which they fought for, which was not paid by you, damn it. It was paid by the American people. 

We will come out of every town and city in this nation. We will come out of every county and both coasts, both borders, and we will march on Washington against your tyranny. You've been warned. You have been warned!
Hear Mark Levin say it!


SOURCE: Mark Levin to Obama: You lay one hand on WW2 vets and I’LL BRING HALF A MILLION PEOPLE TO THAT MEMORIAL!


With all that's happening to our country under Obama, one could imagine that there are more than a few WWII Veterans out there in their 80s and 90s who'd like to go "old school" on Obama and ask him this question: "Do you like your front teeth?!?"

SEE ALSO: Honor Flight Network, (quoting) "a non-profit organization created solely to honor America's veterans for all their sacrifices. We transport our heroes to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at their memorials. Top priority is given to the senior veterans – World War II survivors, along with those other veterans who may be terminally ill. Of all of the wars in recent memory, it was World War II that truly threatened our very existence as a nation—and as a culturally diverse, free society. According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, an estimated 640 WWII veterans die each day. Our time to express our thanks to these brave men and women is running out."

Obama: "Here I come to save the day!"

Obama's inept response to Syria has me channeling comedians.

First, I flashbacked to Steve Martin's classic 'Let's get small' after hearing John Kerry promise an "unbelievably small" military action.


Then I thought the one thing Barack Obama must do to make his televised address to the nation complete is wear his bomber jacket, drag out a record player, and do the late great Andy Kaufman's 'Mighty Mouse' bit lip-synching ♪♫ "Here I come to save the day!"


And on Dennis Miller's radio show, I heard caller 'Brian from Indiana' suggest that Obama use the Benny Hill Theme Music as an intro into his speech. Yeah, that should just about cover it!



More comedians begin piling on. I always said comedically-speaking, Obama is one target-rich environment.
"President Obama needs your help starting World War III! Find out how you can help!"

Fifty years ago today: Dr. King's 'I Have A Dream'



Text of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s 'I Have A Dream' speech

In a speech that will forever resonate, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. warned of "drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred."

How sad it is that today, a divisive Barack Obama, by continuously preaching his politics of envy and class warfare, is now serving up that cup to Democrat Party minions who greedily guzzle from it.

Dr. King would never stand for that!

Which is why I'll never understand how anyone who really celebrates this speech could ever vote (for a) Democrat.

A Poignant Anniversary: "We have a long way to go to catch up to what Martin Luther King said 50 years ago. And we are moving in the opposite direction." ~Thomas Sowell


Larry Elder: The True History of the Democratic Racist Party


Some Of The Lost History In The Civil Rights Movement
(Warning: This article has some extremely offensive quotes made by Democrat President Lyndon B. Johnson.)

Democrats: The Missing Years -- "The party that championed slavery and segregation erases its race record from history."

The DNC's Bold Lies -- "The lies are big, bold and prominent. ... literally akin to writing a history of Germany that ends in 1933 and resumes in 1946, neatly skipping those historic trivialities of Adolf Hitler, the Nazis, and the mass murder of six million Jews (not to mention that small skirmish called World War II) — why is there any surprise, any surprise at all, at the recent repeated surfacing of the culture of racism — judging others by skin color — by Obama media allies and politicians? This cultural rot has been the backbone of American liberalism and its political party the Democrats — for 212 years. No wonder the DNC feels it has to lie." ~Jeffrey Lord

"To Hell with Filthy Filner..."

This sounds harsh, and it rings of frontier justice, but a hundred or more years ago, it wouldn't be surprising to hear that someone who had committed the same acts Filthy Filner stands accused of being found swinging from a tree. I say this with no wish to see violence play a part in what happens to him now.

But a hundred or more years ago, if any of us happened to come across an already dead body swinging in the wind knowing what is now known, I think many of us would recognize it for what it was and we would not cut it down.

And we'd say, "To Hell with Filthy Filner. The buzzards have to eat, the same as the worm."

Obama played a role in the housing crash...

The news:
"The Obama administration is engaged in a broad push to make more home loans available to people with weaker credit, an effort that officials say will help power the economic recovery but that skeptics say could open the door to the risky lending that caused the housing crash in the first place.
...administration officials say they are working to get banks to lend to a wider range of borrowers by taking advantage of taxpayer-backed programs — including those offered by the Federal Housing Administration — that insure home loans against default.
Housing officials are urging the Justice Department to provide assurances to banks, which have become increasingly cautious, that they will not face legal or financial recriminations if they make loans to riskier borrowers who meet government standards but later default.
Officials are also encouraging lenders to use more subjective judgment in determining whether to offer a loan and are seeking to make it easier for people who owe more than their properties are worth to refinance at today’s low interest rates, among other steps."

Click to enlarge

With "the news" that Obama is back at it again, pushing for more home loans to be given out to those with bad or no credit, it's time to ask some questions.

Didn't we already go through this before? Yes we did. We called it the subprime mortgage CRISIS... the housing CRASH... the real estate bubble that BURST... the financial MELTDOWN... and the resulting  "GREAT" recession.

(Shaking my head) Why would we want to go back?

Here's another question: How twisted is it that the person who successfully parlayed ALL THAT DOOM into an election win in 2008 now calls for a return to the very same policies that put us in that "national emergency," especially since it was his fingerprints that were all over it the first time around!

Some articles and references that make the case:

Obama Pushes For Housing Bubble 2.0
Katie Pavlich: "Got bad credit? Want to buy a home? You're in luck! President Obama is ramping up the country for housing bubble 2.0 as he urges banks to loan to people with poor credit so they can purchase a home. What could go wrong? Oh just about everything. And don't worry, the government is going to promise banks everything will be just fine. Continue reading...

Katie closes it out: "President Obama's crappy economy has caused people's credit to decline and even though the economy isn't much better (and neither is their credit) he wants them to buy a home with money and credit they don't have. Fantastic. As a reminder, the housing market crashed after the government forced banks to lend to people who 1) shouldn't have been applying for a housing loan in the first place 2) had no way to pay a housing loan back 3) never intended to pay back the housing loan in the first place."

The official, James Clapper Jr., a retired lieutenant general, said SATELLITE IMAGERY [my emphasis] showing a heavy flow of traffic from Iraq into Syria, just before the U.S. invasion in March, led him to believe that illicit weapons material “unquestionably” had been moved out of Iraq.

Cochran, director of the nuclear program at the Natural Resources Defense Council, said the low-enriched version could be useful to a nation with nuclear ambitions. “A country like Iran,” Cochran said, “could convert that into weapons-grade material with a lot fewer centrifuges than would be required with natural uranium.”

October 2004... Quoting: George W. Bush had good reason to go to war in Iraq and end the regime of Saddam Hussein. First of all, Saddam retained the capability to manufacture weapons of mass destruction. On chemical weapons, “Saddam sought to sustain the requisite knowledge base to restart the program eventually and, to the extent it did not threaten the Iraqi efforts to get out from under sanctions, to sustain the inherent capability to produce such weapons as circumstances permitted in the future.” On nuclear weapons, “Saddam did not abandon his nuclear ambitions. … Those around Saddam seemed quite convinced that once sanctions were ended, and all other things being equal, Saddam would renew his efforts in this field.” Moreover, Duelfer concluded that Saddam in his missile program was developing missiles that exceeded the range limits set in U.N. Security Council Resolution 687. … We were facing a brutal dictator with the capability to develop WMDs and the proven willingness to use them. A dictator whose regime had had, as the 9/11 Commission has documented, frequent contacts with al Qaeda.

The material is used in nuclear weapons and also in making military “plastic” high explosive.

September 2005... Syria after Lebanon: The Growing Syrian Missile Threat -- Quoting: Several different intelligence sources raised red flags about suspicious truck convoys from Iraq to Syria in the days, weeks, and months prior to the March 2003 invasion of Iraq. These concerns first became public when, on December 23, 2002, Ariel Sharon stated on Israeli television, “Chemical and biological weapons which Saddam is endeavoring to conceal have been moved from Iraq to Syria.” … The U.S., British, and Australian governments issued similar statements.
http://www.meforum.org/755/syria-after-lebanon-the-growing-syrian-missile

November 2005... Who Is Lying About Iraq? Quoting: In the National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) of 2002, where their collective views were summarized, one of the conclusions offered with “high confidence” was that “Iraq is continuing, and in some areas expanding its chemical, biological, nuclear, and missile programs contrary to UN resolutions.” The intelligence agencies of Britain, Germany, Russia, China, Israel, and—yes—France all agreed with this judgment. And even Hans Blix—who headed the UN team of inspectors trying to determine whether Saddam had complied with the demands of the Security Council that he get rid of the weapons of mass destruction he was known to have had in the past—lent further credibility to the case in a report he issued only a few months before the invasion… “the consensus of the intelligence community,” as [Lawrence] Wilkerson puts it, “was overwhelming” in the period leading up to the invasion of Iraq that Saddam definitely had an arsenal of chemical and biological weapons, and that he was also in all probability well on the way to rebuilding the nuclear capability that the Israelis had damaged by bombing the Osirak reactor in 1981. … Additional confirmation of this latter point comes from Kenneth Pollack, who served in the National Security Council under Clinton. “In the late spring of 2002,” Pollack has written, “I participated in a Washington meeting about Iraqi WMD. Those present included nearly twenty former inspectors from the United Nations Special Commission (UNSCOM), the force established in 1991 to oversee the elimination of WMD in Iraq. One of the senior people put a question to the group: did anyone in the room doubt that Iraq was currently operating a secret centrifuge plant? No one did. Three people added that they believed Iraq was also operating a secret calutron plant (a facility for separating uranium isotopes).” … So, too, the Washington Post, which greeted the inauguration of George W. Bush in January 2001 with the admonition that “[o]f all the booby traps left behind by the Clinton administration, none is more dangerous—or more urgent—than the situation in Iraq. Over the last year, Mr. Clinton and his team quietly avoided dealing with, or calling attention to, the almost complete unraveling of a decade’s efforts to isolate the regime of Saddam Hussein and prevent it from rebuilding its weapons of mass destruction. That leaves President Bush to confront a dismaying panorama in the Persian Gulf [where] intelligence photos . . . show the reconstruction of factories long suspected of producing chemical and biological weapons.”

January 2006... Quoting: Two Iraqi Airways Boeings were converted to cargo planes by removing the seats… special Republican Guard brigades loaded materials onto the planes, including “yellow barrels with skull and crossbones on each barrel.” There was also a ground convoy of trucks. The flights -- 56 in total -- attracted little notice because they were thought to be civilian flights providing relief from Iraq to Syria, which had suffered a flood after a dam collapse in June of 2002.

June 2006... Declassified memorandum from the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) on the approximately 500 chemical munitions recovered in Iraq
http://www.foxnews.com/projects/pdf/Iraq_WMD_Declassified.pdf

November 2007... Shattering Conventional Wisdom About Saddam's WMDs -- Quoting: Debkafile…has recently published a report claiming that the Syrians were importing North Korean plutonium to be mixed with Saddam’s enriched uranium. Allegedly, the Syrians were close to completing a warhead factory next to Saddam’s WMD dump in Deir al Zour, Syria to produce hundreds, if not thousands, of super toxic “dirty bombs” that would pollute wherever they landed in Israel for the next several thousands of years. Debka alleged that it was this combination factory/WMD dump site which was the target of the recent Israeli air strike in Deir al Zour province. … Saddam’s secret files certainly make a persuasive case of massive WMD acquisition right up to a few months before the war. Not only was he buying banned precursors for nerve gas, he was ordering the chemicals to make Zyklon B, the Nazis favorite gas at Auschwitz. … We know from Saddam’s documents that huge quantities of CW and BW were in fact produced, and there is no record of their destruction. But absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. Therefore, at least as to chemical and biological weapons, the evidence is compelling, but not conclusive. There is no one individual document or audiotape that contains a smoking gun. There is no ambiguity, however, about captured tape ISGQ-2003-M0007379, in which Saddam is briefed on his secret nuclear weapons project. This meeting clearly took place in 2002 or afterwards: almost a decade after the State Department claimed that Saddam had abandoned his nuclear weapons research. Moreover the tape describes a laser enrichment process for uranium that had never been known by the UN inspectors to even exist in Iraq, and Saddam’s nuclear briefers on the tape were Iraqi scientists who had never been on any weapons inspector’s list. The tape explicitly discusses how civilian plasma research could be used as a cover for military plasma research necessary to build a hydrogen bomb. … Iraqi informants showed US investigators where Saddam had constructed huge underwater storage facilities beneath the Euphrates River. The tunnel entrances were still sealed with tons of concrete. The US investigators who approached the sealed entrances were later determined to have been exposed to radiation.

July 2008... MSNBC: Secret U.S. mission hauls uranium from Iraq -- LAST [my emphasis] major stockpile from Saddam’s nuclear efforts arrives in Canada -- Quoting: The last major remnant of Saddam Hussein’s nuclear program — a huge stockpile of concentrated natural uranium — reached a Canadian port Saturday to complete a secret U.S. operation that included a two-week airlift from Baghdad and a ship voyage crossing two oceans. The removal of 550 metric tons of “yellowcake” — the seed material for higher-grade nuclear enrichment — was a significant step toward closing the books on Saddam’s nuclear legacy. It also brought relief to U.S. and Iraqi authorities who had worried the cache would reach insurgents or smugglers crossing to Iran to aid its nuclear ambitions.

July 2012... Syria’s Chemical Weapons Came From Saddam’s Iraq -- Quoting: As the regime of Bashar Assad disintegrates, the security of his chemical arsenal is in jeopardy. The No. 2 general in Saddam Hussein’s air force says they were the WMDs we didn't find in Iraq. King Abdullah of neighboring Jordan warned that a disintegrating Syria on the verge of civil war puts Syria’s stockpile of chemical weapons at risk of falling into the hands of al-Qaida.

July 2012... Syria’s Next Act: With the rebels moving deeper into Damascus, and the regime’s days appearing numbered, the CIA is racing to find Syria’s chemical and biological weapons before it’s too late. Eli Lake reports: Obama administration officials tell The Daily Beast that the CIA has sent officers to the region to assess Syria’s weapons program. One major task for the CIA right now is to work with military defectors to find out as much information on Syria’s weapons of mass destruction, according to one U.S. official with access to Syrian intelligence. Another focus will be to sort through reams of intercepted phone calls and emails, satellite images, and other collected intelligence to find the exact locations of the Syrian weapons, this official said. … Also unclear is what, if anything, Iraq transferred to Syria before the 2003 U.S. invasion. “That is the wild card.”

UPDATE: October 2014... An excerpt from ‘The Secret Casualties of Iraq’s Abandoned Chemical Weapons’:
[Quoting] From 2004 to 2011, American and American-trained Iraqi troops repeatedly encountered, and on at least six occasions were wounded by, chemical weapons remaining from years earlier in Saddam Hussein’s rule.
In all, American troops secretly reported finding roughly 5,000 chemical warheads, shells or aviation bombs, according to interviews with dozens of participants, Iraqi and American officials, and heavily redacted intelligence documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act. [End quote]

Obama preaches to us about our Declaration of Independence?!?


Image Credit

There are so many reasons to be repulsed by Obama preaching to us about "the words" of our Declaration of Independence. Let's focus on just one: Obama has omitted the phrase "endowed by their Creator" from our Declaration of Independence so many times and at so many different venues in each and every year of his imperial presidency that to "Google it" is to wade through a morass of Obama speeches that would be dispiriting to many. Seriously, how can Obama preach to us about "the words" of a document he refuses to properly quote?!?

Phyllis Schlafly answered that question last year. Here's an excerpt:

Obama has done this so often that it can't be a slip of the tongue or a glitch of the teleprompter. Changing the words of the Declaration of Independence is part of Obama's determination to remove everything religious and every mention of God from every aspect of our public life in order to fundamentally transform us from "one nation under God" into one nation under the federal government, especially the executive branch, with no higher power recognized.

That certainly sums it up!

Here's a quick video (with a smart ending) from Citizen Link titled "Stoplight: A Walk for the President" -- it's a great way to wrap this up on a high note. Enjoy!

Say "HELL NO!" to the Obama/Gang of Eight abomination of an immigration bill!

6/27 Enforcement Holiday: Immigration Bill Allows Criminal Illegals 'Safe Harbor'


Let me get this straight... After we learned that the most corrupt lawless president in US history, Barack Obama, played a stealth role in creating this so-called "immigration reform" bill, the same Obama who already promised he'd gut immigration enforcement, the same Obama who lied when he said the bill would require illegal aliens to learn English, the same Obama who refused to meet with ICE agents requesting a voice in the negotiations but met with illegal aliens in the Oval Office, the same Obama who gutted border security with his sequester that tripled illegal immigration after amnesty talks started, the same Obama who used his sequester to leave "large portions" of our southern border open, the same Obama who tried to cover up the fact that his sequester released THOUSANDS of illegal aliens, many who have criminal records and have since "disappeared," the same Obama who still hasn't recovered the thousands of assault weapons that his illegal "Fast and Furious" gun-running put in the hands of drug cartels, after ALL OF THAT, we still have 15 mush Republicans (named below) trying to shove this bill down our collective throats... a bill that:

• doesn't secure the border,

• further damages our economy,

• includes a Democrat slush fund,

• was negotiated behind closed doors,

• has ANOTHER STIMULUS for Obama,

• would give Democrats a permanent majority,

• purposely encourages a flood of NEW illegals,

• hides a permanent amnesty-for-illegal-aliens loophole,

• is over a thousand pages long and weighs nearly thirty pounds,

• NO MEMBER OF CONGRESS WHO SUPPORTS IT ACTUALLY READ,

• "incentivizes" employers to fire Americans then hire immigrants,

• is backed by a Democrat who rallied with Communists supporting it,

• is more lenient to law-breaking criminal illegal aliens than it is to legal immigrants and US citizens,

• was so deceitfully sold that faux "conservative" and "evangelical" political action "front" groups were created just to sell it,

• eases restrictions for asylum seekers [Sec. 3401], adds another appeals layer for rejected aliens [Sec. 3504], lets AG Eric Holder give taxpayer-funded legal counsel to illegal aliens which is contrary to existing law [Sec. 3502], outsources assistance for amnesty-seeking illegal aliens from DHS "to community organizations" [Sec. 2106],

• gives DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano the discretion to further gut border security, this following her stunning Senate hearing testimony after the Boston Bombing when she admitted that she knew terrorist Tamerlan Tsarnaev had taken a trip last year to Russia and she STILL let him come back into our country...

After all that and the threats we're now hearing from rabid Democrats if it doesn't pass, you know what I say to those trying to make this abomination of an immigration bill become law?!?

HELL NO!!!
