Time to push back against the regime

birtherTOSOn Feb. 8, 2014, one of the oldest and most highly trafficked websites addressing the eligibility and fraud of the individual representing himself as Barack Hussein Obama II was shut down by Google (Blogger) on a pretext of Terms of Service (TOS) violations.

As you may know, Google and several other highly successful tech and Internet companies have cooperated with the Obama administration and its nefarious data-mining and censorship practices, despite Obama’s disdain for business in general and capitalism in particular, and his habit of co-opting entire business sectors.

After the complaints of the website’s owners, users and negative publicity, Google re-activated the website two days later. Their claim to the owner was that hackers had compromised various servers and ad servers, thus leading to the interruption of service. Many users and observers find this implausible given prominent notices that appeared on the website during that period, which specifically indicated that it had been shut down due to TOS violations.

Leaving aside the relative imprudence of the owner hosting a site with such content on a Google server (knowing their ties to the administration), let us examine the facts as we know them:

Over the last few years, American citizens, patriot groups and even members of the press have been targeted by the Obama administration for illegal scrutiny, harassment and intimidation. We are aware of the high-profile IRS scandal, wherein conservative nonprofits were targeted for inordinate scrutiny during the application process – but that is just the tip of the iceberg.

Prominent Wall Street advisor recommends “Bug-out Bag” with increasing collapse risk

bug-out-bag1A top financial advisor, worried that Obamacare, the NSA spying scandal and spiraling national debt is increasing the chances for a fiscal and social disaster, is recommending that Americans prepare a “bug-out bag” that includes food, a gun and ammo to help them stay alive.

David John Marotta, a Wall Street expert and financial advisor and Forbes contributor, said in a note to investors, “Firearms are the last item on the list, but they are on the list. There are some terrible people in this world. And you are safer when your trusted neighbors have firearms.”

His memo is part of a series addressing the potential for a “financial apocalypse.” His view, however, is that the problems plaguing the country won’t result in armageddon. “There is the possibility of a precipitous decline, although a long and drawn out malaise is much more likely,” said the Charlottesville, Va.-based president of Marotta Wealth Management.

Marotta said that many clients fear an end-of-the-world scenario. He doesn’t agree with that outcome, but does with much of what has people worried.

“I, along with many other economists, agree with many of the concerns expressed in these dire warnings. The growing debt and deficit spending is a tax on those holding dollars. The devaluation in the U.S. dollar risks the dollar’s status as the reserve currency of the world. Obamacare was the worst legislation in the past 75 years. Socialism is on the rise and the NSA really is abrogating vast portions of the Constitution. I don’t disagree with their concerns,” he wrote.

The Domestic Abuse of Lady Liberty

libertyabusedOn Nov. 27, National Public Radio ran a story entitled “Conservative Groups Would Take Hit From New IRS Rules, ” citing that new Internal Revenue Service rules “aimed at clarifying what constitutes political activity for tax-exempt” organizations were likely to affect conservative groups more than their liberal counterparts. This move comes on the heels of the now-infamous scandal in which the IRS illegally targeted conservative nonprofits during the 2012 election cycle.

While the actions of the IRS in 2012 are still being spun by President Obama as a “screw up” (his words), even the establishment press acknowledges that it was an organized, deliberate effort that came from the top down. It is also widely accepted among conservatives that these policies were intended to stultify the political activity of conservatives in their efforts, which it did succeed in doing.

As the reader may also recall, Lois Lerner, the former senior IRS official at the center of the decision to target tea-party groups for onerous tax scrutiny, personally and retroactively green-lighted a 501(c)3 application for Malik Obama, the president’s half-brother (if one buys the narrative of his origins), a bundler for the Muslim Brotherhood. This despite the fact that Obama’s organization had been operating in violation of the law over the previous two years.

So how is it that the administration has the gall to promulgate yet more burdensome IRS regulation of nonprofits that is likely to affect principally conservative groups with the body of the last IRS scandal not yet cold?

The Desperate, Lying Left

The Desperate, Lying Left

insanityFormer Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell calls Obamacare “manna from heaven” during a segment on Al Sharpton’s MSNBC crap-tacular. Sharpton himself invokes the recently-departed Nelson Mandela to legitimize the idea that President Obama is fighting “tougher opposition” than Mandela did. Race-baiter Michael Eric Dyson likewise invokes Mandela to legitimize raising the minimum wage as administration-coordinated communist agitators demand. Obama declares to his cabin boy-in-waiting Chris Matthews during an interview that Republicans are to blame for the problem with the Obamacare rollout – right after claiming that casting blame is not part of his “management style.” New York Times columnist Paul Krugman follows suit, absolving Obama of any responsibility for anything untoward that has occurred during his abysmal tenure as President.

You can’t make this stuff up. In the Obama-Matthews interview (if you could call it that), Matthews openly indicts Republicans for trying to “make it difficult for minority people to vote,” and Obama agrees, thereby adding fuel to the fires of racialism that he has so effectively stoked over the past five years.

I suppose we should be grateful, because this wanton, sloppy, shameless, outrageous, foray into Unicornland on the part of the left (whether Obama, the press, or their pants-pissing idiot followers) is indicative of their terror and desperation. They know that over the past few short weeks, millions of Americans suddenly got Obama’s number, and are now more critically examining all of the President’s words.

And they aren’t believing them.

They now know that Barack Obama is a serial liar, and many are beginning to see the bigger picture – that the entire political framework within which he operates is a lie. Worse yet, they are beginning to see that the common denominator is the American people taking it in the shorts.

This has led to the almost laughable excursion into the most blatant lies and fabrications to which Americans have ever been exposed. Like the maniac who peels off his clothes and dashes off into the night shrieking, his last shred of sanity having deserted him, the wild abandon of the calumnies, allegations, and outright fantasies being put forth are the signs of those who have nothing left to say, let alone anything that makes sense.

Only those possessing the dimmest, flickering intellect will fall for this stuff; they’ll be the ones deriding me for writing this, and you for agreeing.

Quite sad, really.

A “Grim” Fairy Tale

jimgarrow1

by Dr. Jim Garrow

Legend has it that the President works for “We the People”, but that only exists in a Republic not run by thugs and thieves and we all know that the reality is that Bathhouse Barry works diligently for the Saudis and George Soros or whoever puts the words on his teleprompter screen. I guess that Bathhouse Barry forgot about the Saudi money that set him up in the beginning, got him his degrees, his apartment, his Paki bed-buddy, and ultimately his protector Valerie Jarrett and Dave (the hammer) Axelrod.

That of course led to victories in Illinois and then for the Senate and his brief (“I’m present, count me!”) fling with doing nothing on the public dole. And then finally in the treatise on how to live large while never working, mere pontification being enough, we have the march to the White House, Obama held aloft by the magic of Oprah Winfrey, Revs Warren and White, and every commie pinko who could get their hand around the throat of the magic hen laying those golden eggs. And Barack and Michelle and Bathhouse Barry’s boy buddies lived happily ever after or at least until the American people discovered they’d been conned, and went promptly back to sleep, dreaming of hope and change.

Were Chris Stevens and Michael Hastings Assassinated?

stevens_hastings1

A few weeks ago my colleague, journalist Cynthia Farahat broke the story of Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi’s involvement in the attack of our embassy in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012 which resulted in the deaths of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans. A day ago, Morsi’s involvement was confirmed by Libyan intelligence, who contends that Morsi essentially orchestrated the attack.

On June 18, Michael Hastings, the intrepid journalist whose reporting brought down the career of General Stanley McChrystal, died in a fiery and highly suspicious car accident in Los Angeles. On June 24, former U.S. National Coordinator for Security, Infrastructure Protection, and Counter-terrorism Richard Clarke revealed that the fatal crash was “consistent with a car cyber attack.”

We know – although this has not been confirmed by the Obama administration – that the White House was supplying weapons to Syrian insurgents through Libya, a fact that could have had negative repercussions for Obama had it surfaced on the eve of the 2012 election. We also know that Obama is thick as thieves with the radical Muslim Brotherhood, and without Obama, there would have been no “Arab Spring” or Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood having risen to power in Egypt.

Discerning evil: Look to forest, not trees

asleep2aThis will appear self-evident to some, but I find it necessary to articulate the imperative that we do not fall into the trap of even considering the entreaties of the president, his administration and other agencies who contend that recently revealed activities of the National Security Agency were restricted to terror-related investigations. “Nobody is listening to your calls,” as President Obama said, is a lie – or a gross misrepresentation, if government officials happen to be relegated to reading transcripts, as opposed to examining the digital media itself.

I would imagine it’s probably about as accurate as “If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan,” and plays to nothing less than sheer gullibility.

It is also evident that despite “bumps in the road” presented by the Benghazi, Internal Revenue Service, Associated Press, NSA and other scandals and the widespread suspicion they have generated, this administration intends to forge ahead as though none were the wiser. This was punctuated last week when Obama appointed Susan Rice as his new national security adviser, and White House aide Samantha Power as his nomination to replace Rice. As the serial liar in the Benghazi aftermath and a hardened communist respectively, these two women are among the worst representatives for the U.S. interests imaginable, in any venue.

This flagrant rewarding of criminality with a coveted political appointment (in the case of Rice) was also seen by Americans as Obama casting a huge middle finger in our direction.
