Obama Embraces Favorite Liberal Strategy: “It’s For The Children”

Also posted at ClashDaily

Barack Obama continues to unashamedly use last December’s murder of 20 Connecticut children to advance his war on the 2nd Amendment, parachuting in to communities that have suffered mass shootings at the hands of lunatics to screech lies while using victims’ families as wallpaper. I guess these people haven’t suffered enough. Earlier this week in Hartford, CT, they had to endure hearing the Dear Reader recite the following from his Prompter:

 “This is not about me. This is not about politics. This is about preventing this from happening again. This is not about politics. This is about these families.”

There are very few statements that always true, that are indisputable 100% of the time. I am about to share one of those rare gems with you now, so listen up. When someone who emerged from the stinking slough of corruption that is the Chicago political machine tells you “this is not about politics,” you can be absolutely sure that it cannot possibly be about anything else. It’s like when someone tells you “it’s not about the money.” That statement is how you know that’s all it’s about.

Barack Obama and his allies hope that the soccer mommies, devoted viewers of “Inside Edition,” and “The View,” and similar members of the low-information cohort will be convinced by his phony and politically-motivated posturing that his latest attempt to gain more power over every single aspect of American life results from his concern for “the children.” It’s always “for the children,” isn’t it? Whenever liberals want to take away your money and your freedom, they become obsessed with “the children.” As touching as that sentiment is, I’m having a difficult time reconciling Barack Obama’s current obsession with those sweet little Newtown tots, and with protecting all the other children in America, with some of his policies, which demonstrate anything but concern for children. In fact, they show outright contempt for them.

Exhibit A-He’s OK with Infanticide

Barack Obama, this supposed defender of the innocent, holds views on abortion that are beyond extreme. While he was an Illinois state senator, he voted not once, not twice, but three times against bills requiring that babies fortunate enough to survive late-term abortions, who didn’t, to use his charming turn of phrase, come out “limp and dead,” be provided with medical care. He couldn’t support helping these innocent children because any suggestion that they were human beings might somehow infringe on “a woman’s right to choose.” Nothing must tarnish the precious liberal sacrament of abortion in Obama’s view. His slobbering sycophants in the Lame Stream Media managed to cover up his hideously militant pro-abort votes during his first presidential campaign. They had no interest in telling the American public that their chosen One had no problem with the murder of babies in 2007, 2008, or even in 2012. Apparently, the years haven’t inspired any increased interest in that issue, since there has been a virtual blackout on coverage of the murder trial of abortion butcher Kermit Gosnell. Leave it to the British press to shine a light on what The Daily Mail accurately calls a “house of horrors,”  The story describes testimony of medical assistant who claims he saw

“about 100 babies born alive and then ‘snipped’ with surgical scissors in the back of the neck, to ensure their ‘demise’.

He also spoke of the gruesome scenes at the clinic which was allegedly found dirty and rundown with rusting surgical instruments.

‘It would rain fetuses. Fetuses and blood all over the place. It is literally a beheading. It is separating the brain from the body,’ he told NBC.”

During his recent Hartford clinic on demagoguery, Barack Obama whipped up the crowd’s emotions by decrying the “154 bullets” fired into the Newtown victims. Yet, he has remained silent about the unimaginable cruelty and butchery alleged in the abortuaries that he enthusiastically supports, because the question of when a baby acquires civil rights is “above [his] pay grade.

Exhibit B-He Enthusiastically Supports Planned Parenthood

Given his adamant support for abortion, of course, Barack Obama is a huge fan of America’s Number One abortion provider, Planned Parenthood. He has threatened states that have the audacity to refuse to do business with them with a cut off of federal Medicaid funds. It’s a mutual admiration society. They poured $12 million into his 2012 campaign. Unfortunately, in addition to all the great work that Planned Parenthood does, all that “women’s health care,” they enable the statutory rape of underage girls.  Amazingly these children do not deserve a vote, according to our benevolent ruler, however, he does want to make sure that if they end up pregnant by one of the adult men who are using them like playthings, they aren’t “punished with a baby.”

Exhibit C-He Has “Evolved” on Traditional Marriage

Political correctness has made it heresy to state the obvious truth, but I will fearlessly do so now. The ideal situation for a child is to be raised in the home with the man and woman who created him in wedlock. We have reached the end of the descent into the moral sewer that began with the Left’s 40-year campaign to destroy the traditional family, by demeaning marriage as “just a piece of paper,” and that end is so-called “same-sex marriage.” Barack Obama’s recent “evolving” on this issue exposes his ridiculous pontificating about valuing all families for the sake of the children as another phony politically motivated conversion. Is his support for redefining the building block of civilization about protecting children or protecting his party’s prospects in 2014? No one can claim to know what impact this radical departure from what we’ve always understood the term “marriage” to mean will have on children. No one knows, and most of us aren’t willing to take a chance. Can we say for sure that it will not encourage more cases like this one, involving a Connecticut “married” homosexual couple?

Given his radical, decades-long hostility toward the 2nd Amendment, and his lack of concern for the children who suffer as a result of liberal policies, Barack Obama’s disgusting and very transparent attempt to climb on top the corpses of murdered children and boldly proclaim that their deaths made him realize that we need to “do something” about gun violence would be laughable if it weren’t so disgusting.

Too Perfect: Mel Reynolds is Back

Seriously, people considered this doofus a rising star. You know, like the “rising star” in the White House.

UPDATE: I forgot to include this feel-good story, related to Mel Reynolds’ plans to take another stab at “public service.”

Jesse Jackson Jr.’s Resignation Could Cost Taxpayers $5.1 Million – ABC News

You can’t keep a good man down, or even a not so good man who likes to get down, like disgraced former Congressman Mel Reynolds. He was a Barack Obama type, with the cool persona, the Harvard degree, and the left-wing agenda, and without the hip biracial, multi-cultural background. Unfortunately for Mr. Reynolds, there was one other teensy weensy difference between B. Hussein Obama and Mr. Reynolds.   If you’ve forgotten him, here’s a little refresher, from the Chicago Tribune:

Reynolds held the 2nd Congressional District seat from 1993 until October 1995, when a Cook County jury convicted him of several sex-related charges, including having sex with an underage volunteer campaign worker. While serving time in state prison, Reynolds also was convicted on federal financial and campaign fraud charges. President Bill Clinton commuted Reynolds’ sentence to time served in 2001.

Ruh-roh. I wonder if Bill Clinton tried to explain to Mel that it’s OK to be a skirt chaser, as long as the skirts are worn by females over the age of 18, not 16 year-old campaign volunteers, or (imaginary) 15 year-old Catholic schoolgirls.

Now that the current representative of the 2nd District, Jesse Jackson, Jr,,  is on the way out, apparently Mel wants his old job back. Also from the Chicago Tribune:

Disgraced former U.S. Rep. Mel Reynolds said he will ask voters to focus on his congressional experience rather than his state and federal criminal record as he announced his bid today for the seat held by Jesse Jackson Jr., who has resigned.

At a downtown hotel news conference, Reynolds acknowledged having made “mistakes” in the past. For his campaign, he will try to assume the mantle of an incumbent while also seeking redemption from voters. Red and white campaign signs urged voters to “re-elect” Reynolds “so he can finish the work” while another stark red sign with white letters said simply: “Redemption.”

Of course, the  2nd District has had an “interesting” history, as the Chicago Tribune article notes:

Reynolds replaced Gus Savage, a controversial and outspoken congressman who was condemned by the House Ethics Committee amid allegations of sexual misconduct involving a Peace Corps volunteer while he was on an official congressional visit to Zaire.

After Reynolds resigned, Jackson won a special election in 1995 to succeed him. But after 17 years, Jackson stepped down last week amid federal ethics investigations and a diagnosis of bipolar depression.

As I often say, you can’t make this stuff up.

One commentator says that Mel Reynolds opened the door for Barack Obama, which is just another reason to despise him. This being Illinois, though, it’s certainly not a reason for the District’s foolish voters not to elect him.
