Hillary and Other Democrats Hold the Keys to Heaven and Hell – Good to Know!

Black Americans voted overwhelmingly for Barack Obama. Somehow they thought that having a Black President* would benefit them. In reality, it is a President’s policies that help or hurt people, not the color of their skin. Too bad many people do not understand this simple concept. Nor do they seem to understand what policies help or hurt them. If they did, they would not continue to vote for Liberals.

Since Barack Obama took office in 2009 race relations have gotten worse, not because whites have become more racist under Barack Obama, but because he , Eric Holder and other Democrats have fanned the flames of disaffection in Black communities across America.  Adding to that disaffection is a sluggish economy.  In fact we have had the slowest economic recovery since WWII under Barack Obama, which is, in part, BECAUSE of this President’s anti-business policies.

How has the Barack Obama Presidency helped Black people in America? Contrary to the “Hope” Barack Obama held out for them, they have not fared well. We need to look no further than a comparison of the latest unemployment rate between White-Americans, African-Americans, and Asian-Americans. According to the Barack Obama’s own Federal Bureau of Labor, the unemployment rate in January 2016 for Whites was 4.7%, for Asians it was 3.7%, but for Blacks it was 9.1%.

Now we hear foolish things coming from supporters of Hillary Clinton like, “There’s a special place in hell” for women who don’t vote for Hillary. How is it that Hillary’s gender will somehow translate into a benefit for all women if she is elected? It is the same anti-intellectual thought process that has disappointed so many Black people who thought Barack Obama would be their savior.

Madeleine Albright

Hillary cackles at Madeleine Albright’s “Special place in hell for women” comment in New Hampshire. Silly people in the background applaud the stupidity.

It is the Liberal-progressive politicians’ policies, their obsession with race, their anti-business attitudes and their cronyism that hurts the majority of Americans. While the rest of us suffer, they benefit in power and money. Just look at how much money Hillary and Bill Clinton have reaped in speaking fees from the big Wall Street banks. It may be legal, but it stinks like a dead fish and reveals clearly that Hillary is in the pocket of those banks. Contrary to her promises, she will not be looking out for the little people if she becomes President. She is a snake – forked tongue and dangerous.

Socialist Dream Crashes in Venezuela

empty shelves venezuela

Empty store shelves in Venezuela. The reality of the socialist dream. History tells us over and over again that government-imposed price controls lead to scarcity every time.

On Sunday, Venezuelans went to the polls and repudiated the socialist government led by Hugo Chavez’ successor, Nicolas Maduro. The BBC and Wall Street Journal are reporting that the opposition has won 99 seats in the National Assembly, the Socialists have won 46 seats and the votes for the remaining 22 seats are still being tallied.

Venezuelans, who are suffering enormously from the policies and corruption of Nicolas Maduro’s government have finally come to their senses and now reject the failed socialist revolution. If Venezuela is to be fixed, it will probably take decades to rebuild what was once the wealthiest nation in Latin America.

Maduro’s term as President is not over until 2019. It will be interesting to see if he can last that long. My guess is he will not.

Socialist gathering in Trinidad and Tobago in 2009. Left to right: Barack Obama, Nicolas Maduro, Hugo Chavez.

Thanks to the Socialistas in Venezuela, free speech often lands you in jail, inflation is approaching 100% per year, stores shelves are bare, basic services and the healthcare are in shambles, essential medicines are nearly unobtainable, food is in short supply, etc. Viva la Revolution!

The lesson for The United States: Socialism is a disaster. Do not elect Hillary or Bernie or any other national Democrat, unless of course you think socialism is working in Venezuela and should be repeated here.

One of the objectives of the socialist revolution as stated on President Maduro’s website is to:

“Continue building (Bolivarian) socialism of the 21st century in Venezuela, as an alternative to wild capitalism model and thereby ensure the ‘greatest amount of social security, the greatest amount of political stability and the greatest happiness for our people.”

While private property, and economic and political freedom – capitalism will never lead to a perfect society, I’ll take those things over socialism and the inevitable social instability it causes any day.

Sarcastic condolences to American Chavezistas Sean Penn, Michael Moore and Oliver Stone. I hope the new National Assembly  bans them from Venezuelan soil for life.

“The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other peoples’ money.” – Margaret Thatcher

“Socialism is a wonderful idea. It is only as a reality that it has been disastrous. Among people of every race, color, and creed, all around the world, socialism has led to hunger in countries that used to have surplus food to export…. Nevertheless, for many of those who deal primarily in ideas, socialism remains an attractive idea — in fact, seductive. Its every failure is explained away as due to the inadequacies of particular leaders. ” ― Thomas Sowell

OBAMA CLAIMS ISLAMIC STATE TERROR GROUP HAS BEEN “CONTAINED.”

This beautiful, young American, Nohemi Gonzalez, was murdered in cold blood on November 13th in Paris by ISIS terrorists.

This beautiful, young American, Nohemi Gonzalez, was murdered in cold blood on November 13th in Paris by ISIS terrorists.

On Thursday, November 12th, President Obama told ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos that ISIS is “contained.” The very next day, in Paris, France heavily armed ISIS terrorists went on a rampage and killed at least 129 innocent people and wounded about 350 others. 99 of those wounded are in critical condition. Once again, President Obama has been caught trying to deceive not just the American people, but the entire world. Remember, it was this foolish man, the man who has been entrusted with more power than anyone to combat world terrorism, who in 2014 referred to ISIS as “J.V.” or Junior Varsity.* It is true to say that the Obama Administration’s effort to deflect from its failure to protect American lives in Benghazi, was done simply to avoid losing an election.

This incompetent leader spends so much time covering up his failures. The result of his deception is that too many unthinking Americans and Obama supporters have been lulled into a false sense of security. This can only happen in a society where a large part of the media is corrupted and complicit in the deception. Propaganda is used by the likes of MSNBC, CNN, Politico, Huffington Post, Media Matters, Thinkprogress.org, The New York Times and other “news” outlets to conceal the truth about the state of our nation.

President Obama is now welcoming Syrian refugees into the United States. And with all that is going on in the world he refuses to seal America’s borders. How is this a good thing? Wake up people, before it’s too late.

Although Barack Obama’s last day as President won’t come soon enough, it won’t really matter unless we elect a more competent, and honest person to be our next President. That certainly excludes, Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton.

*When professional propagandist and White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest tried to deceive people about President Obama’s foolish Junior Varsity comment he was given FOUR PINNOCHIOS by Tampa Bay Times’ Politifact. Since the Tampa Bay Times could not bring themselves to assign President Obama four Pinnochios, even though he made the same false statement as Josh Earnest, I will step in here and award President Obama his well deserved prize:

Junius 

(Who was Junius?)

Hats off to the Washington Post which did see fit to award President Obama with four Pinnochios for trying to mislead people about what he had previously said about ISIS. It brings a glimmer of hope that there may still be some in the news business with integrity even at liberal-leaning Washington Post.

Barack Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize – Will it be retracted?

At least one news report has surfaced recently that claims Mr. Geil Lundestad and others of the committee who awarded Barack Obama a Nobel Peace Prize now think it was a mistake. I believe the report’s claim is probably true. Thank you Mr. Lundestad  for your candid admission, but you have already done your damage.

The Nobel PP Committee wrote in 2009:

“Obama has as President created a new climate in international politics. Multilateral diplomacy has regained a central position, with emphasis on the role that the United Nations and other international institutions can play.

“Thanks to Obama’s initiative, the USA is now playing a more constructive role in meeting the great climatic challenges the world is confronting. Democracy and human rights are to be strengthened.”

Why should we ever again care to whom the Nobel Peace Prize Committee awards it prize? It’s obvious those people are just as clueless as President Obama about how peace is achieved in a world filled with villains.

The PP Committee also wrote in 2009:

“For 108 years, the Norwegian Nobel Committee has sought to stimulate precisely that international policy and those attitudes for which Obama is now the world’s leading spokesman.”

None of the West’s antagonists are listening to President Obama. Vladimir Putin is not listening, Kim Jong-un of North Korea is not listening, ISIS is not listening, Iran’s mullahs are not listening. They don’t care who wins the Norwegian’s peace prize.

The Nobel Peace Prize has become totally irrelevant to achieving ACTUAL world peace.

Retracting their award to President Obama would now do more harm than good. The award should never have been given to him in the first place. It’s kind of like dropping a bomb on the wrong target – some things you can just never take back.

On the eve of WWII, British Prime Minister Chamberlain displayed a peace agreement with Adolf Hitler. Chamberlain was mistaken when he claimed there would be “peace in our time.” Do President Obama’s concessions to Putin and Iran make him the Neville Chamberlin of our time. Unfortunately, a lot of us think so.

Looking back on the events that led to WWII Winston Churchill wrote: “How the English-speaking people through their unwisdom, carelessness, and good nature allowed the wicked to rearm.”

History doesn’t exactly repeat itself, but it often rhymes. Apply Churchill’s brilliantly written point to the rise of ISIS in Iraq and Syria or the U.S. – Iran Nuclear deal.

When historians look back on the international chaos caused by Obama’s brand of foreign policy, I fear they will be writing something like:

“How western leaders, led by President Obama, through their un-wisdom, foolishness and misunderstanding of international structures allowed their enemies to arm as the world devolved into chaos.”

Fart Control: Boycott Ben & Jerry’s – Save the Planet

It comes as no surprise to some of us that Ben & Jerry’s spreads false propaganda about the environment. For instance, they have a fun “fact” sheet that claims there will be 40% more Category 4 and 5 hurricanes in the future due to climate change. I would like some genius at B&J’s to explain why there has been an unusual absence of Atlantic hurricanes (meteorologists call it a hurricane drought) in the past few years and why a Category 3 or higher has not hit the US since 2005 (Wilma) – the longest period since records have been kept. These are facts that contradict the doomsday predictions despite an increase in atmospheric CO2 since 2005. Tornadoes counts have also been running below “normal” the past couple of years, opposite global warming claims. The scary predictions have so far been wrong.

Lost in translation!

Lost in translation!

The climate models, which are used as the basis for the push to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, are far from good predictors. They have diverged so far from actual climate data (models have predicted far more warming than actual historical measurements show) that Dr. John Christy of the University of Alabama (who pioneered the measurement of Earth temperatures from satellites) had this to say:  “We might forgive these modelers if their forecasts had not been so consistently and spectacularly wrong. From the beginning of climate modeling in the 1980s, these forecasts have, on average, always overstated the degree to which the Earth is warming compared with what we see in the real climate.”

Bernie Sanders for President! Support Fart Control - Boycott Ben & Jerry's

Bernie Sanders for President! Support Fart Control – Boycott Ben & Jerry’s

The folks at Ben and Jerry’s have been very vocal about the need for Congress to enact laws that place caps on greenhouse gas emissions. This has given me an idea that I am sure Ben & Jerry’s will be in favor of. It is well known that milk cows emit enormous amounts of methane, a dangerous greenhouse gas. Therefore, I have asked Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont (where B&J’s is headquartered), to introduce a bill into Congress that would place a cap on ice cream production and consumption. In the meantime committed environmentalists should all do their part to save the Earth by cutting back on their ice cream consumption.

BOYCOT BIG ICE CREAM!

You might also want to contact Ben and Jerry’s and ask them what they are doing to keep cow methane from polluting the environment. Perhaps President Obama and Pope Francis should join forces with Bernie Sanders in this important cause. I will contact them now. You should too. Frotho Canutus

Scary Nonsense Masks Our Real Problems – Happy Halloween!

OH THE HORROR !

OH THE HORROR !

I must admit, some Halloween costume themes this year (as in every year) really are in very poor taste and are recognized as such by most civilized people. Ones like “Neighborhood Watch,” which portrays George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin with a bullet wound in his chest or the maimed Asiana Airline crash pilots with the phony names Wi Tu Lo and Sum Ting Wong. These are not amusing. They exploit horrific tragedies and show a real level of callousness, of untaught feelings in the people who are amused by them.

But then there are other costumes that some groups of people feign offense toward. Ones like the Sexy Indian Squaw, or Mexicans wearing sombreros, or the Sushi Chef. I mean really, if someone wants to manufacture offense at something silly like a girl in a Japanese kimono, let them go ahead and be offended. But I don’t believe it. Here’s what Anh Do of the Los Angeles Times reported on October 28th: “Pottery Barn apologized for selling a Halloween costume of a sushi chef and a kimono that an Asian civil-rights group had complained were culturally offensive.The retailer confirmed late Monday that the items had been removed from its website.”

Happy Halloween II

WOOPS ! I HOPE I DON’T OFFEND THE GANGSTERS.

People who are easily swayed or cowered by this manufactured offense need to lighten up. And the perpetrators of this offense need to stop pretending that it’s a sensitivity thing. It is not. It is merely a way to gain power over other people. It’s like those who claim that if you are a White person and don’t like Barack Obama’s and the Democrats’ new health care law, it must only be because you are some kind of racist. These are nothing more than attempts by the political left to publicly flog or delegitimize the people who do not share their world view. Believe me – these things are related.

Vintage Halloween pinup girl

NOTHING OFFENSIVE HERE.

So don’t worry so much about offending someone with your or your kids’ Halloween costume. If people want to put their energy into being offended they should be offended by things that really matter. Things like politicians who lie and make promises like, “If you like your health care plan you can keep it,” etc. Or the fact that many of our members of Congress show an utter disregard for the U.S. Constitution, or the $17 trillion (and growing) federal debt racked up by irresponsible politicians, which will greatly reduce the living standards of the next generation of Americans. Being offended by things like that would not be misplaced.
