Once a “Community Organizer” Always a Community Organizer: Lies, Class Warfare and Finger Pointing from Obama on Worst Economy Since Great Depression

(Note: I will address the “phony scandals” in a separate post.)

The brilliant Thomas Sowell has said that Barack Obama is the master of the “plausible lie,” and yesterday during his 10,000th “pivot” to the economy, the One put on a clinic on just that.

There are only three groups of people who could witness this insufferable gasbag blather on for over an hour without either laughing uncontrollably or screaming “Mommy, make it stop!!”; specifically, (1) those who realized that, lacking any substantive arguments to make the case for the terrific job he’s done revitalizing our economy, he was going to drone on incessantly and started thinking about what they had to do after they were mercifully released (2) those familiar with Obama’s “gift” to say, or I should say read, the most implausible things with a straight face, sitting in shock as they watch him actually perform this act or (3) clueless children so blissfully ignorant that they have no idea that they are being played, being fed more Whoppers than Burger King has sold in the last 5 years.

For example:

And so what happened was that the link between higher productivity and people’s wages and salaries was broken.  It used to be that, as companies did better, as profits went higher, workers also got a better deal.  And that started changing.  So the income of the top 1 percent nearly quadrupled from 1979 to 2007, but the typical family’s incomes barely budged.

More class envy, which is the enemy of economic growth and which also happens to be Obama’s religion. Does anything in that paragraph explain why we have had economic levels of economic growth for 5 years? No.

And towards the end of those three decades, a housing bubble, credit cards, a churning financial sector was keeping the economy artificially juiced up, so sometimes it papered over some of these long-term trends.  But by the time I took office in 2009 as your President, we all know the bubble had burst, and it cost millions of Americans their jobs, and their homes, and their savings.

You mean the housing bubble fueled by government policies demanded by “community organizers” like you stoking the fires of racial entitlement to force banks to give mortgages to people who had no business getting them in the interest of “fairness?” 2009? Weren’t you in the Senate in 2005 when the democrat party was instituting these policies? It’s a rhetorical question, Ace. You were.

Together, we saved the auto industry; took on a broken health care system.

The auto bailout was a favor to your union buddies, who got a windfall while bond holders got screwed. And the stock price of GM shares is still way below what it needs to be for tax payers to be made whole. Nice try.

We invested in new American technologies to reverse our addiction to foreign oil.

Increases in oil production happened on private land. You went as far as defying a federal judge to prevent offshore drilling in Louisiana. Then there’s that Keystone pipeline thing …

But — and here’s the big “but” –

Oh, I didn’t know Moochelle was with you.

The average American earns less than he or she did in 1999.  And companies continue to hold back on hiring those who’ve been out of work for some time.

Of course they’re holding back from hiring BECAUSE OF YOUR POLICIES. Can you say “Obamacare?”

Today, more students are earning their degree, but soaring costs saddle them with unsustainable debt.

Which will soar even more if the federal government continues to subsidize the ridiculous salaries and benefits for your buddies in the academic mafia. Remind me, how much is Janet Napolitano going to earn when she goes to head the University of California system, a job that she’s obviously qualified for-NOT? Oh yes, it’s over $500,000.

So in many ways, the trends that I spoke about here in 2005 — eight years ago — the trend of a winner-take-all economy where a few are doing better and better and better, while everybody else just treads water — those trends have been made worse by the recession.

No, they have been worse by your policies, based on class envy, which is what this sentence is promoting. God, you have got to get some new writers. How many decades are democrats going to try to pick at the rotting corpse of Karl Marx?

This growing inequality not just of result, inequality of opportunity — this growing inequality is not just morally wrong, it’s bad economics. Because when middle-class families have less to spend, guess what, businesses have fewer consumers. When wealth concentrates at the very top, it can inflate unstable bubbles that threaten the economy. When the rungs on the ladder of opportunity grow farther and farther apart, it undermines the very essence of America — that idea that if you work hard you can make it here.

And that’s why reversing these trends has to be Washington’s highest priority.

What was I saying about new writers? Ironically, Washington D.C. is the one place where no one is suffering in this rotten economy because Obama and friends have seen to that by massively growing the federal government.

Then, rather than reduce our deficits with a scalpel — by cutting out programs we don’t need, fixing ones that we do need that maybe are in need of reform, making government more efficient — instead of doing that, we’ve got folks who’ve insisted on leaving in place a meat cleaver called the sequester that’s cost jobs.

Unbelievable. The sequester was HIS idea! Are you starting to see what Thomas Sowell was talking about?

For example, they worked together on an immigration bill that economists say will boost our economy by more than a trillion dollars, strengthen border security, make the system work.

But you’ve got a faction of Republicans in the House who won’t even give that bill a vote.

How exactly will giving amnesty to 11 million low-skilled people raise wages for Americans? It won’t. Even the CBO says the Senate amnesty would depress wages for TWELVE YEARS.

Now, I know there are folks out there who are actively working to make this law fail.

That would be his signature “train wreck,” Obamacare. You mean like the unions who wrote a letter to democrat leaders in Congress saying “you’ve got a problem and you need to fix it” when they realized that your brilliant “achievement” was resulting in people who had full-time jobs having their hours cut to part time? Genius.

I have now run my last campaign.  I do not intend to wait until the next campaign or the next President before tackling the issues that matter.  I care about one thing and one thing only, and that’s how to use every minute — (applause) — the only thing I care about is how to use every minute of the remaining 1,276 days of my term — (laughter) — to make this country work for working Americans again.  (Applause.)  That’s all I care about.  I don’t have another election.

Wrong. The campaign never ends, and you do have one more election, in November 2014, the election that will decide whether you are able to deliver the death blow to our country that you’ve been scheming since you were attending those socialist conferences when you were a student at Columbia.

The reason they were laughing is because they realize how ridiculous it is for a man who spends so much time playing golf and taking his repellant wife on luxurious vacations to tell the peasants that all he cares about is them.

Surviving and Thriving with Wayne Allyn Root, Plus The End of Boston Bomber Fairy Tale-Today on the Teri O’Brien Show, 4-28-13

Friday’s economic growth numbers continued the disappointing trend that many clichè repeating news readers have dubbed with the irritating phrase “the new normal,” with a pathetic 2.5%. While reporting on this rotten economy, the Lame Stream Media attempts to cover for Barack Obama and the destructive effects of his policies by blaming the sequester, a decline in government spending that amounts to a rounding error, and which, as they always conveniently neglect to mention, was Obama’s idea.

While we serfs struggle in Obama’s economy, the political glitterati continue their endless whirl of celebrity-studded, luxurious parties, dinners and self-congratulatory celebrations, including last night’s White House Correspondence Dinner aka “the Nerd Prom,” an annual Hollywood-Washington mashup that gets more embarrassing every year. The One took the occasion to perform an alleged “comedy” routine, which has been greeted by the sycophantic stenographers in the press as delightfully self-deprecating, but which on closer examination is just more on the same finger in the eye to the bitter clingers. Guest comedian Conan O’Brien phoned it in, ripping the usual liberal targets like the NRA and Rep. Michele Bachman, while reading the jokes that his enormous staff of writers helped him prepare from index cards. Earlier in the week, the elites celebrated the opening of George W. Bush’s library, where Bill Clinton showed some evidence of personal growth. He told the audience that he thinks he should keep his clothes on. It was clear that Michelle Obama did not want to be there. Her expression said “just kill me.”

That leaves us here in real America trying to survive in what our guest Wayne Allyn Root calls the “Obamageddon.” How can you and your family not only survive, but also thrive and prosper, in this economy? Wayne will share some strategies from his new book, The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide.

The Boston bombers investigation continues, and it is very clear that the whole “just a guy who got radicalized and brought along his brother–lone wolves–nothing to see here” narrative is falling apart. Why was the questioning of pothead/jihadist punk Tsarnaev the Younger abruptly ended after only 16 hours by the arrival of a magistrate, who took the highly unusual step of helpfully bringing along an attorney? The reason is obvious and we’ll unpack it.

I not only watch so you don’t have to. I read, and I’ve been plowing through the Gang of 8’s proposed immigration bill. As I told you a couple of week’s ago, Marco Rubio is being played by Chuck Schumer, and this disaster needs to be stopped. “Comprehensive immigration reform” is simply a way for democrats to hold solutions to actual problems like the failure to track aliens who overstay their visas, or errors that allow people like Tamerlin Tsarnaev to slip through the cracks, hostage to their desire to admit millions of new democrat voters to the country.

Speaking of the Tsarnaev family, they clearly believed that they were entitled to support from taxpayers, and now, according to a very influential radical Islamist cleric, that’s a great way to finance jihad. From the Daily Mail: “A controversial Muslim cleric will not face action despite telling his followers to claim benefits and saying David Cameron should be killed. Telling fellow fanatics to claim ‘jihad seeker’s allowance’, Anjem Choudary, who in the past has planned to disrupt the minute’s silence on Remembrance Sunday, also openly mocked hard-working Britons, calling them ‘slaves’.” The article also notes “The father-of-four takes home more than £25,000 a year in benefits and lives in a £320,000 house in Leytonstone, East London.” Preview of coming attractions for USA?

For Once, Obama Keeps His Word, Blames Sequester for Ugly Job Numbers

He warned us back in March that he was going to blame any piece of bad economic news on the sequester, and by extension, the GOP.

Right on cue, today he followed through on this promise. As Jammie points out in this linked post, at least he didn’t blame George W. Bush.

Our Caring Dear Leader Shows His Enormous Caring Again

First published at Clash Daily

Barack Hussein Obama, caring

If there’s one thing we know about Obama, it’s that he cares.

If there’s one thing we know about our Dear Reader, Barack Hussein Obama (Praise be his name), it’s that he cares about people, especially the little people, that 47% that that rich, selfish Mitt Romney dissed during that infamous appearance in front of a group of equally selfish, greedy, uncaring rich people. Everybody knows that if caring about the “middle class” were people, Barack Obama would be China. If caring were measured in grains of sand, Barack Obama’s caring would be more than all the grains of sand on all the beaches of a thousand planet Earths. Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) can cry all he wants. He could even persuade the Oprah to interview him, and he could cry on live TV during the interview in which he declares that, like Sen. Mark Kirk, he now understands that all that matters is “who you love and who loves you back.” Still, even after that, soccer mommies, American Idol groupies and all other similarly situated low-information observers would know that Barack cares more about them than Speaker Boehner does or anyone else ever has or ever will.

How else to explain his latest incredibly caring and magnanimous evidence of his tremendous caring, offering to give back 5% of the salary that we subjects pay him to rule us? It’s hard to believe, but this preternatural creature earns only $400,000 a year for the tremendously difficult work that he does just for us. It would be a bargain at twice that annual price to be led by one so brilliant, so wise, and, yes, so caring, and yet he’s going to give back!  Isn’t that what life is all about? What more can this man do for us? Once again, he is leading by example, Peasant.

Some naysaying bitter clingers, cynical as ever, have tried to sully Barack’s beautiful, selfless act by bringing up the following facts, which they foolishly believe will tarnish the public’s opinion of our beloved Dear Leader (Reader):

  • By giving back 5%, Barack Obama will be returning $20,000 to the Federal Treasury, or less than he spent flying Air Force One out to California for his most recent fundraiser. This amount won’t have any effect on his lifestyle because he lives in government housing, and he doesn’t pay for the gas in caravan of SUV’s that transport him and his family. Plus, he’s really rich. Sure, all that’s true, but he still cares about you, Peasant. Just because his lifestyle is not affected one iota by what you call a “symbolic and meaningless gimmick,” unlike this guy, Jeff Maryak, who has suffered a 27% pay cut as a result of the sequester, that doesn’t change how much it shows that he cares. Mr. Maryak, a Bronze Star winner has resorted to delivering pizzas at night after doing his 9-5, and he still can’t make ends meet, so he is seeking a military redeployment. I have no doubt, though, that Mr. Maryak felt so much better today when he learned of President Obama’s magnificent gesture.
  • Some point out that perhaps President Obama was not motivated to give back 5% of his pay by his love and caring for his people, but rather because of the drop in his approval rating, which may have resulted from the suspension of White House tours, something the little people and their children look forward to during their Spring Break vacations. When juxtaposed with the Obama family’s perpetual vacations, including the Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous style “sun and ski” combo recently enjoyed by the Obama daughters, some suggest that he needed to do something to remind the downtrodden how much he cares about them, more than he cares about anything else on this earth. Now he has. I hope that everyone is satisfied and can now move on. Oh yes, some people like those whiners over at Judicial Watch, who are going to insist on finding out how much the Obama princesses recent trip cost taxpayers, won’t, but the rest of us should feel our hearts swell just thinking about how much our wise ruler cares.
  • Finally, some have actually pointed out that Barack Obama did this to be “in solidarity” with “government workers,” and have suggested that this language sounds like something out of the old Soviet Union’s lexicon. They also note that, while he never fails to show concern for government employees who lose their jobs, always citing the horror of even one public school teacher being laid off, for example, he seems completely unconcerned about the jaw-dropping increase in the number of people in private sector who have become so discouraged in the Obama economy that they have completely stopped looking for work. These people have completely checked out, and like ghost workers they haunt our economy. The labor participation rate in 2008 was over 66 million, and it has dropped every year of Barack Obama’s presidency. Now it stands at 63.5 percent. It’s wrong to criticize Barack Obama for not mentioning people displaced from the private sector. He cares about these lost workers, too. We know he does because that’s one thing everybody knows about Barack Obama. That he cares. More than anyone.

WTF File: How Did We Get Into This Mess? Today on The Teri O’Brien Show-3-31-13

On this Easter Sunday, it’s essential that Americans count our many blessings. We have a lot of problems to solve, but we live in the greatest country on earth. Still, as our economy continues to limp along, Obamacare begins its steps of destruction, and our media is obsessed with so-called “same sex marriage,” it’s also appropriate to ask, how did we get here? How did we get into this mess? Certainly it is the result of Barack Obama’s ongoing project to “remake” (read “destroy”) the country we grew up in and replace it with a Euro-style socialist paradise. To completely answer the question, though, we need to take a step back. The very fact that someone like B. Hussein Obama could be elected President of the United States in the first place is nothing short of appalling, given his radical, anti-Constitution ideology, which he has embraced for 30 years and which was not exactly a secret, at least not to those who bothered to scratch the surface about his background. Bingo. I think I have swerved into an essential part of the analysis. It seems obvious that no one who had even a nodding acquaintance with Barack Obama’s voting record, his writings, and his Amerika-hating friends, and who considered that he was a product of the corrupt Cook County political machine by way of ACORN, could have considered voting for this man, unless of course, the voter’s goal was the destruction of the America we have known and loved.

So haven’t we answered our own question? We (1) knew that Barack Obama was a radical who described the U.S. Constitution as document of “negative rights,” meaning that he considered its system of limited federal power an obstacle to his grand plans and (2) understood the implications of that fact; specifically, we connected those dots, which lead to the inevitable understanding that a government big enough to give us everything we want is also big enough to take everything we have. That’s why we could never have supported Barack Obama and put him in the position to do the damage he continues to do to our great nation. Those who I have called the “low information” voters since 2009 were different. They didn’t see any problem with voting for this “cool” “historic” figure. Presto-the Left’s 100-year project of dumbing down the population through the public education system produced their ultimate victory!

For decades, Hillsdale College has attempted to stand against the Left’s promotion of ignorance in the service of socialism. It is devoted to making sure that the next generation does appreciate and revere our Constitution, and one of its best, economics professor Gary Wolfram has written a new book designed to push back the frontiers of ignorance. “The Capitalist Manifesto” does what I thought was impossible: making economics, specifically free market economics, not only accessible, but interesting. He’ll join us to explain what we can do to reach the Lo-Fos and take back our country.

Barack Obama continues to travel around the country lying about ”universal background checks” for gun purchases. He says we should feel ashamed for not supporting his idiotic, pointless gun control agenda. I say he should be ashamed for trying to use murdered children to trample on the rights of law abiding citizens. What say you? More in our 2nd Amendment update.

Is there a deal on “comprehensive immigration reform?” Sen. Chuck Schumer says “yes,” but Sen. Marco Rubio, also a member of the “Gang of Eight,” who have been working on the issue, isn’t so sure

The White House remains closed to the public, so no tours for any of the little people lucky enough to afford a spring break vacation to D.C. Our Dear Reader was forced to cut 2% from the increases in his profligate spending by that scary sequester, and so now the peasants must pay. Meanwhile, the Obama daughters enjoy the “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous,” apparently doing the “sun and ski” package favored by the likes of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. First, petting dolphins and partying at “Club Crush” at the luxurious Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas, then, because since when in one vacation enough for any member of the Obama family,  a Sun Valley ski trip. How much did these trips, with the private jets, the Secret Service agents and other miscellaneous expenses, cost taxpayers? We know that Malia Obama’s Mexico spring break getaway last year cost us over $115, 000. And how was YOUR spring break, Bitter Clinger?

Tune in today for the rest of the story.
