The Passion of the Barack

Doesn’t care about Ebola.

Doesn’t care about ISIS.

What really gets him going?

Electing a new people.

All the wind will come out of their sails when December comes along and his executive order is all hat and no cattle.  Though like I said, the Razatards really have nothing to worry about in spite of that.





One Horse

Weekly Standard:

In his United Nations speech, President Obama will bring up the summer shooting in Ferguson, Missouri.

“I realize that America’s critics will be quick to point out that at times we too have failed to live up to our ideals; that America has plenty of problems within our own borders. This is true,” Obama will say, according to prepared text of his address.

“In a summer marked by instability in the Middle East and Eastern Europe, I know the world also took notice of the small American city of Ferguson, Missouri – where a young man was killed, and a community was divided. So yes, we have our own racial and ethnic tensions. And like every country, we continually wrestle with how to reconcile the vast changes wrought by globalization and greater diversity with the traditions that we hold dear.”

Yep, Ferguson.  One of those dots on the map in the middle of nowhere that you miss if you blink if you go through it on the only road, a two-lane road, that leads to and from it.

But hey, who can blame Obama?  All he can do is read what is loaded for him on the teleprompter, and you can’t expect him to know any better or find out any better on his own, because golf.





Abhorring the Vacuum

10 09 2014

Washington, D.C.

It’s finally dawning on the left wing Obama brown nosing cultists:

The good news is that Obama has a pen and a phone.

The bad news is that he won’t have a pen and a phone forever, eventually someone else will.

I think this essay is missing a few things.  Some of the crucial ways in which power has been accumulated around the Presidency in the Era of Hope and Change also include the fact that President Obama is just flat out ignoring the Federal courts in some cases, his executive branch regulatory agencies are on a regulation-issuing rampage, and that his official opposition is mostly hapless and ineffective and given to slap-happy dead end attempts to oppose him (the lawsuit that this essay mentions at the beginning will amount to nothing), and in the case of immigration, deliberately so because it mostly agrees with what he’s doing, the few immigration patriots in Congress notwithstanding.  When you get right down to it, I think the Republican establishment is perfectly happy with ObamaDontCare, because its prime beneficiary, the insurance industry, dumps a lot of money on Republican politicians and Republican-allied think tanks and PACs.

Otherwise, the historical trend is undeniable:  Power abhors a vacuum, and when it can, it almost always accumulates around some central singular force.  That axiom has been aided in recent American history by both the increasing trend of presumed Federal supremacy in most public policy, and an original flaw of the Constitution that invests all military and Federal law enforcement power in the executive branch.  That’s what Obama really means about this “pen and phone” business; it means that he has control of the world’s most powerful military and of Federal law enforcement, the chances of either being defeated for the foreseeable future are slim, so therefore he can do whatever the hell he wants.

Except I think the author of this essay doth protest too much when he worries about future “conservative” Presidents’ use of the pen and phone.  Sure, we might have Republican Presidents, in theory, but the Republican establishment is working day and night to make sure that no genuine conservative (quote-unquote) can win the Republican nomination for President.  That and as I write this, “genuine conservatives” are still worshiping at the altar of the Cult of the Constitution and the cult of one form or another of libertarian ideology, so all you’ll hear them talk about in their quixotic Presidential campaigns is how they want to “restore the Constitution,” as if it’s any more possible to restore a dead document than it is to bring a dead man back to live, notwithstanding that one example two thousand years ago.  The writers at Vox would have a lot of reason to worry if someone like your ever-lovin’ too snarky for his own good blogmeister was running for President in 2016, who would promise to use the pen and phone to benefit white people.  But nobody like me seems to want to do that.





Open Letter

Dear Barack Obama,

Sorry for interrupting your golf game.

Signed,

The World.





Freedom of the Press

Ferguson

Obama White House:  Arresting journalists is wrong, so wrong, a violation of the freedom of the press.

Obama White House:  Let’s cover up information we have about Michael Brown and his friend robbing a quickie mart, then complain when someone else releases it, because we have a narrative to push and elections to win.

Tennessee

I bet Obama is waiting to see what happens tonight in Lamar Alexander vs Joe Carr to decide whether or not he’s going to some sweeping amnesty executive order.

Which means that he tonight, like a lot of people, will have his browser pointed at GoVoteTN.com and will be frequently hitting reload.

And I have been able to confirm that Tennessee does not have a runoff, which means it’s now or never.  Joe Carr needs to get more votes than Lamar Alexander today, but the good part is that it need not be an absolute majority.





Rule Twelve

The NRA and NSSA were willing to meet Obama half way on “illegal guns” (whatever that means) last year.  I bet they would have probably accepted if not engineered a deal to exchange a non-intrusive universal background check for national CCW reciprocity.

So why didn’t Obama travel his half?

Because:

Former National Rifle Association President David Keene agreed: “The Obama administration is treating the gun issue like it’s a political race. They want to separate the NRA and treat the NRA like they do a political opponent during a campaign.

In other words, the 12th Rule, of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.”

What Obama forgot is that not everyone was scared to play the 12th rule against him.
