Keith Olbermann . . . bad actor and cartoon character is at it again! He called Senator Richard Shelby a traitor last week. Yes, a traitor, because Shelby had the temerity to answer a constituent’s question about Obama’s eligibility to hold the office of POTUS . Hat tip to a recent post on The Betrayal Blog which brought my attention to this. I stopped watching Olbermann & MSNBC months ago and would have missed this. Olbermann’s harangues and constant ravings having become so predictable, silly, and (worse still) boring! Why watch?

Which brings me to March ’08, when Olbermann & MSNBC devoted an entire hour of coverage to Obama’s passport breaches by contract workers at the State Department. Here’s a reminder of “Great Passport Firestorm” of 2008 for those who may have missed it.

At the time I thought the story was an odd one to devote so much time and attention to. If a plane slams into a building that’s “breaking news”, but this? Passport peeking? I thought the coverage at MSNBC verged on the bizarre. Someone looked at Obama’s passport information . . . really what was the big deal? Strange, indeed, to devote so much time to something, that on the surface appeared to be rather minor and of little note.

Remember, at time, the issues concerning Obama’s eligibility had not been raised. Those stories were on the horizon, months away from the initial passport story . In fact, my first post questioning Obama’s eligibility was related to Obama’s dual citizenship. This was later in the summer of ’08 when an article in the Rocky Mountain News first appeared. It mentioned BHO’s dual citizenship referenced back to 1963.

Now let’s fast forward to Olbermann and his assault on Senator Shelby.

How are these incidents ties together?

Well for starters, the answer to the question of “what’s the big deal” about looking at Obama’s passport has turned out to be a very big deal. Passport information includes date and place of birth . . . Hawaii or Kenya, for example. Passports information also details countries traveled to, travel dates and citizenship . . . US? Kenyan? Indonesian?

Suddenly the passport peeking is a very big deal if a person is perpetrating a hoax and knowingly running as an ineligible candidate for the office of President. Wanna bet Olbermann’s over the top, knee jerk reaction to the passport peeking was because Olbermann (and I would venture to say a host of others) always knew Obama was ineligible to run for POTUS.

The traitors among us do not include Senator Shelby . . . quite the contrary. Mr. Olbermann, you and everyone who has aided and assisted in bringing the faux President, the fraud Obama to the White House, you are the traitors and should be treated accordingly. Senator Clair Mc Caskill that includes you. The tip off? Olbermann’s over reaction and continued obfuscation of the truth as it relates to Obama’s citizenship. Olbermann has become a brazen liar and MSNBC is nothing less than Obama’s Pravda.

As an aside, I wonder who those two contract workers were who looked at Obama’s passport records? I sure as hell would love to talk to them and find out what was really in Obama’s records . . . the ones he continues to hide from the American people. Think there’s a way to find these two?

When it comes to race relations and discussions about race, Eric Holder, Obama’s controversial pick for Attorney General thinks “Americans are cowards”.

Let’s see, the country has just elected its first multi-racial president and Mr. Holder is of African American descent and Americas are cowards. Well, isn’t that fine statement . . . one that motivates people to what exactly? Anger? Resentment? What a pompous jackass!

We’re all Cowards? I guess that’s just us white folks eh? Hmmm, we don’t talk enough about those things that are racial. Well, let me make a couple of observations, including the fact that we talk about race in this country ad naseum. You can’t escape it, its everywhere. Listened to Imus lately? Enough said.

Holder wants honesty, OK, let’s be honest.

One, it’s damn difficult to talk about race when constantly being called a racist. In the last year and a half, the race card has been used so often that it no longer shocks people, it just pisses them off. The race card is almost always played by someone of color (see how PC I am?) and hurled against an Anglo, a person of little color, a white person. Using the race card is a tactic used by black people to throw white people off and put them on the defensive. Its use is supposed to play on “white peoples” guilt about slavery.

Two, the person (or persons) using this tactic, trying to bludgeon their object of hatred or derision, should consider that the very act of using the race card makes them racist. The constant use of the race card has become tiresome, tedious, and predictable. IMHO, using the race card is a racist tactic used by racists to gain a tactical advantage. Period.

Three, might I suggest that we retire the “R” word the same way we are trying to retire the “N” word. Both are hateful and negative and shouldn’t be used unless there is a legitimate reason. Nazis were racist, the Klu Klux Klan was racist, people who oppose Obama’s politics and policies for legitimate reasons are not automatically racists. If you don’t know the difference, don’t use the word.

Four, if one thinks about it, a person who resorts to using the race card is really demonstrating how weak and unpersuasive their point or position really is. Using the race card is childish, and immature . . . little more than junior high school name calling.

Five, the past 40 or 50 years has seen this country move forward at warp speed in its attempts to right the wrongs of the past. The black community in the United States has gone from riding in the back of bus to driving the bus. I defy anyone to name another country that has moved as quickly as we have. Are we perfect? No! Are we moving in the right direction? Yes! We’ve gone from Rosa Parks to Eric Holder and BHO in less than a generation.

Six, ascribing 21st century behavior and attitudes about race and slavery to people from past centuries is non-productive and asinine. Expecting people who were convinced the world was flat, or couldn’t grasp the connection of washing hands & germs, or who ripped beating hearts out of their enemies as an offering to the Gods makes no sense and is a waste of time. This is akin to asking people in Alexander’s world, or Leonardo’s world, or Lincoln’s world to understand concepts with which they have no connection like computers or cell phones. Slavery was part of their world. 21st century value judgments that slavery was wrong are meaningless. America didn’t invent slavery. Slavery in the U.S. was a continuum on the time line of advancing civilizations and our understanding of humanity.

The fact is, slavery has existed almost from the beginning of time. Slavery was a natural outcome of war. It was practiced by the ancients, the Romans, the Babylonians, etc. and continued for thousands of years, ending in this country with the Emancipation Proclamation. The MSM continues with stories that it is practiced in parts of the world today.

Might I suggest it is time to stop dragging slavery’s past with us. Yes, slavery existed and remains part of our history . . . yes, it was wrong, . . . yes, yes, yes, all of it true. That having been acknowledged, the country needs to leave the past in the past and work together for a more perfect Union. That cannot be done in an atmosphere that pays more homage to the wrongs of the past than to building a better and stronger future sans the wrongs.

Seven, might I suggest, that anyone who wants to hurl the racist epithets against another person simply because their skin is of a light hue or assumes that their relatives contributed to slavery or were part of the slave trade, is akin to feeding into same types of prejudices, stereotypes, and assumptions that include all blacks have ryhthm, all Jews are rich, all Mexicans are lazy, the Polish are dumb, all Asians are bright, etc. I don’t really need to continue do I?

Mr. Holder might I suggest that if you want people to work together to solve problems the best way is to deep-six the name calling and look for ways to find common ground. Put the flame thrower away.

This country has real problems and is in need of real solutions. You sir, are either part of the solution or you can remain to be part of the problem!

I am a small business owner. My company is one of the 24,000,000 small businesses that create 50% of the jobs in this country.

Without us, the politicians chant and drone on & on, the American economy would not be able to expand. We keep America afloat! (Oh, say can you see?  Sing it, everyone!)

Small business owners are a lot like “our brave men and women” who serve the country.  We get trotted out every time a politician needs a sound byte, needs to let the world and the MSM know that he or she supports Main Street over Wall Street . . . that they feel our pain.  What a crock!

Take a look at the Obama Albatross Plan  and see what you can find that helps small businesses out. (H/T Ahrcanum “ahR-Kah-noom” > secret secrets)

In a WSJ article, Coburn wrote, “What is not in the bill is as troubling as what is. The package does nothing to clear the toxic assets and bad mortgages that helped trigger the credit crisis. It also contains very little meaningful tax relief to make small businesses and American companies more competitive. Instead, the tax provisions of the stimulus are essentially a modest cash handout that repeats the failed policy of George W. Bush’s rebate-check stimulus.”

A quick read of the excellent article in the National Review of what is in the Bogus Stimulus Plan is enough to make anyone hurl.  Below are a few of projects the Obama/Democratic Washington lunatics think will help our economy recover:

$50 million for the National Endowment for the Arts
$380 million in the Senate bill for the Women, Infants and Children program
$300 million for grants to combat violence against women
$2 billion for federal child-care block grants
$6 billion for university building projects (at least there are construction jobs here)
$15 billion for boosting Pell Grant college scholarships
$4 billion for job-training programs, including $1.2 billion for “youths” up to the age of 24
$1 billion for community-development block grants (hmm, how do you spell ACORN?)
$4.2 billion for “neighborhood stabilization activities” (WTF is this?)
$650 million for digital-TV coupons; $90 million to educate “vulnerable populations” (WTF is that?)

Many of these projects have merit, but have absolutely no business in a plan designed to stimulate the economy.  In truth, Obama and the Dem’s really don’t know what they are doing, although they acknowledge what they are doing will double the $1 trillion debt left by Bush.  This is Washington’s version of throwing everything up on the wall and hoping something will stick. Well, Barack, Nancy, Barney, & Chuckie babe . . . guess what?  Hoping won’t get the job done.  Common sense and restraint will.  What am I talking about?  This is Washington, after all.

This is big government as its worst, and getting bigger every day.  As you reviewed this list, did you find anything it that helps the “back bone of the American economy”, small business? No? Me neither, because, it’s not there! BTW, if you are a homeowner, you won’t find anything here, either.

What we have here is the Grand Gesture, the “See, aren’t you glad you elected me? Look how much money I know how to spend!) designed and put together by the fools in Washington who absolutely no idea what it means to own a small business . . . what it means to meet a payroll . . . what it means to make a profit . . . what it means to “make do” with the resources at hand and keep your business afloat.

In part II,  5 things that Washington could do that would really stimulate the economy without emptying the treasury, help small business, and get consumers spending, again!

It’s official.

The Obama “Stimulus” Bill, a stinking pile of garbage and pork barrel spending, disguised as relief for our economy, passed both houses on Friday. The way it was crafted, the manner in which the voting public and members of the Republican Party were excluded, was dumb, infantile, shockingly crude and heavy handed.

Way to go Princess Pelosi. Looks like you and Marie Antoinette have a lot in common . . . both of you being so attuned to the needs of the people and all. By the way, Chuckie (I am referring to the “smuck” Schumer), the American people do care about pork barrel projects. You sir, along with Princess Pelosi, represent all that is wrong with Washington. If tone deafness were bankable you would both be millionaires.

The bill, HR 1 which started out at 700 plus pages grew to over 1,000 plus pages in less than 48 hours, and wasn’t read by a single member of Congress.

“Here we are with 1,100 pages,” Boehner said on the floor of the House, “that not one member of this body has read, not one.” He continued, “What happened to the promise that we’re going to let the American people see what’s in this bill for 48 hours? But no, we don’t have time to do that.”

The rationale behind passing the biggest spending bill in U.S. history without taking any time to evaluate the long term consequences of such actions was because something had to be done. Right. This is akin to watching a house that has caught on fire and having water and kerosene to choose from, and lacking the common sense to discern one from the other, throwing a can of kerosene on the fire because, “something had to be done!” Time was of the essence, you know. This is the Captain of the Titanic being told, “Sir, there are icebergs all around us!” and responding with, “full steam ahead!”

The Usurper Obama and his merry band of lunatic Democrats have danced this country down the road to financial ruin. Bush leaves office and the country $1 trillion dollars in debt, with a housing foreclosure disaster of monumental proportions, millions have lost their jobs, the banks aren’t lending, consumers aren’t spending . . . afraid their jobs may be next, and what does the latest group of lunatics running Washington (and this country into the ground) decide to do? Well, spend another trillion, of course!

Want to see where your tax dollars are going? Go to Stimulus Watch (H/T Oil for Immigration) and check out your city and state. Thanks to World Net Daily for giving us the site info needed to review the bill:

the joint explanatory statement of the committee of conference, which summarizes the bill, can be read here on the website. The actual text can be read here on the Library of Congress website.

Mike Lukovich, whose cartoons regularly appear in the Atlanta Journal Constitution, is one of my favorite political cartoonists. Most of the time, I’ve felt his positions about what effects this country have been spot on. Unfortunately, like most of the MSM, Lukovich drank the Kool-Aid and fell in love with the Usurper.

This cartoon was published just before the November election. The irony of Obama being handed a Constitution in tatters, brought on by the Bush Administration’s action cannot be over stated, given the fact that Obama’s disregard of our Republic’s most sacred document, the U.S. Constitution, is regularly ignored. Where Lukovich sees Obama in a heroic light, those of us who have opposed Obama’s politics and policies see little more than a fraud.

Obama has been described as an egomaniac and a pathetic narcissistic megalomaniac who should never have been allowed to enter the White House.


Fact . . . Obama has been elected selected (by the Dean and the other despicable dirty Democrats) to hold office as the first knowingly ineligible candidate to run for the office of POTUS. His own website proudly proclaimed his dual citizenship at the time of birth. One must be a natural born citizen to hold office, born of two parents both of whom are U.S. citizens. Obama was not.

Fact . . . he is the only “President” who has refused to produce the most basic information concerning his background that includes his college records, his original vault copy of his birth certificate (under seal), health records, thesis, billing and client records, etc, etc, etc. while proclaiming to aspire to an open and transparent presidency.

Fact . . . Obama’s teams of lawyers continue to fight toothe and nail to keep this information suppressed. They are now looking to sanction those persons looking to uncover the truth. Most recently, a California suit has been filed against Occidential College to have the college produce Obama’s records while he was in attendence.

Why is this information so important? Because the information ” could reveal on what name Obama attended classes at Occidental and whether he attended on scholarship money intended for foreign students ” as reported by Bob Unruh WorldNetDaily:

A high-powered team of Los Angeles attorneys representing President Obama in his effort to keep his birth certificate, college records and passport documents concealed from the public has suggested there should be “monetary sanctions” against a lawyer whose clients have brought a complaint alleging Obama doesn’t qualify for the Oval Office under the Constitution’s demand for a “natural born” citizen in that post.

Fact . . . Obama has turned his back on so many of his campaign promises for change, that it’s hard to keep track. Two of the most recent examples of his back-tracking include allowing lobbyists to serve in his administration and his decision to keep the Bush policy on rendition. Of late his plea for bi-partisanship has changed into, “We won, so get over it!” Ah, yes, Change we Can Believe In.

Fact . . . this isn’t the first time the Usurper has used intimidation. One need only go back to the 2008 campaign and Obama’s Truth Squads in Missouri to see what the Obama team thinks of the Constitution and free speech (and thought)! Governor Matt Blunt of Missouri said:

What Senator Obama and his helpers are doing is scandalous beyond words, the party that claims to be the party of Thomas Jefferson is abusing the justice system and offices of public trust to silence political criticism with threats of prosecution and criminal punishment.

Fact . . . in less than a month in office, Obama has taken steps to tear this country apart using the financial crisis as a reason to stir further chaos. The Obama stimulus plan is a recipe for disaster and will bring this country to its knees, if it is passed.

It is beyond insane for Obama to demand that a $1.5 trillion dollar bill be on his desk by February 16th. It is insanity that anyone in Congress to consider voting for a 787 page bill that isn’t available for review and consideration.

Fact . . . this country and all of its citizens remain in jeopardy until the Usurper is driven from office.

Does the economy need a stimulus plan? Yes. Is this the right one? No, not by any measure! Does the plan HAVE to be on Obama’s (the Usurper) desk by February 16th? No! Does anyone on Main Street, anyone with a modicum of common sense believe this plan will work? No!

We are supposed to watch billions of dollars flow out of the treasury so Obama’s stimulus plan can “create” 4 millions jobs. Let’s see, if Richard Shelby is correct, that’s at a cost of $286,000 per job . . . a job that may or not be created. We still don’t know. Even the fools in Washington admit, “No one knows if this will work  . . . but if we don’t act now America faces a catastrophe bigger than the Great Depression . . . one from which we may never recover.”  Hey hearing that, I’m feeling secure about my future, how ‘bout you?

Well, so much for leaving the politics of fear behind! Final cost of draining the treasury for this fool hardly experiment . . . over a trillion dollars. Have they all lost their (place your favorite expletive here) minds?

Since, no one knows if the “stimulus” plan will work. Why don’t we call this insane financial disaster package what is really is . . . the Obama Albatross Plan?

You know the definition of insanity; the act of consistently doing the same thing and expecting different results. Well, let me tell you this sucker will be with us for generations, because as everyone in the country knows (with the exception of the financial wizards in Washington) there is no free lunch. We have a trade deficit as far as the eye can see; China is already holding a very large percentage of our debt, and the Obama wiz kids want to double the deficit.

Bush leaves office leaving this country with the biggest deficient on record . . . eight years of uncontrolled spending . . . a Treasury Secretary who insists the country has to pump $780 billion dollars into the economy to save it. The first half of the money is sent to banks (some of which say they don’t want it) so the banks can begin lending again. Of course, no safeguards are in place, no method for tracking where each and every taxpayer dollar is going. Oh and BTW $78 billion has already been erroneously been overpaid. Poof! Poof! Poof! Into thin air the money goes, and as always the MSM is virtually silent . . . still fixated on Obama’s pecks . . . still swooning in rapture. God, where is that barf bag?

Can anyone list the safeguards that have been put in place to track the billions of dollars Obama and the Democrats want to hurl at the economy for the Albatross Plan? No! There aren’t any, no one wants to take the time to place them into the Albatross bill. That would take work, commitment, and besides we’ve got to meet that February 16th deadline because . . . just what exactly is the reason? Will the Sears Tower explode? Will half of California finally fall into the ocean? What will happen on the 17th if the Albatross bill isn’t on Obama’s desk? How ‘bout this; we will have averted financial disaster, brought on by the clowns in Washington, at least for another day.

What we are supposed to do is to allow billions of dollars to flow out of the treasury. We are to cross our fingers the money will be spent intelligently because, you see, the banks did such a bang up job doing that with the first $350 billion. The banks were supposed to start lending, again, with the first half of the hand outs. Instead they bought other banks, hoarded the money, and increased credit card interest rates!!!!!!! They (add another expletive here) increased the credit card rates to as much as 29% or more!!!! The banks are getting our taxpayer dollars are raping us with usury rates . . . and the Obama team remains silent. And they wonder why no one is spending money! Is there a penalty for such obscene, unconscionable behavior . . . a slap on the hands . . . a fine perhaps? No. Nothing!

How many legislators do you guess have actually read all 778 pages (at last count) of the bill? My guess is none. How many legislators understand business and how the economy works? Close to the same number is my guess.

Here’s another question, how many in Washington could run a lemon aid stand and make a profit? How many of these fine folks, the one that are hurling the future of this country over a never ending cliff, could put together a basic business plan, buy the materials, hire, plan for overhead associated costs, and figure out a way to make a profit?

So, now here we are. The Dow is down another 300 points because as the tax evader Treasury Secretary Geithner Treasury just acknowledged, the first half of the bailout billions is not working. Instead of helping the economy recover, the money is doing the opposite! So, in an effort to help the economy Geithner wants to release the other $350 billion AND THE SENATE HAS JUST PASSED OBAMA’S $838 BILLION ECONOMIC PLAN. Remember that definition of insanity?
