Unfairly Disadvantaging

If you want, work toward, a better life for your child by reading to them or sending them to a private school then shame on you. You are unfairly disadvantaging other people’s children. Reading younger children bedtime stories is an unfair advantage to those children whose parents don’t read to them or even own a book (even though there are public libraries with scads of books for the borrowing). If you choose to send your child to a private school, rather than joining the masses in the public school system, then you must realize you are guilty of adding to social injustice.

“I don’t think parents reading their children bedtime stories should constantly have in their minds the way that they are unfairly disadvantaging other people’s children, but I think they should have that thought occasionally,” he said. But Swift also added that some other things parents do to give their kids the best education possible — like sending them to “an elite private school” — “cannot be justified” in this way.

Leftist elites will do anything to keep those not entitled by birth to a substandard education at all cost. Remember the kerfuffle over the DC voucher program?

Yet, despite the clearly positive results and the proven success of this program, Sen. Dick Durbin, Rep. Jose Serrano, Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton, and Secretary Arne Duncan worked together to kill the OSP. Funding the program only for existing children shrinks the program each year, compromises the federal evaluation of the program, denies entry to the siblings of existing participants, and punishes those children waiting in line by sentencing them to failing and often unsafe schools.

What is incredibly disappointing to low-income families in Washington, D.C. has been the silence of President Barack Obama. The President, who benefited from K-12 scholarships himself, worked on behalf of low-income families in Chicago, and exercises school choice as a parent, has stood silently on the sidelines while his Secretary of Education belittled the importance of helping such a small number of children in the nation’s capital.

It took John Boehner and the awful R-words to re-instate that program. Why are the Dems so dead set against the poor rising through education? Hillary can explain that to you ( no, she didn’t mention the big donor money from the teacher’s unions to Dem pols).  What a hypocrite!

If Hillary really wanted to be the “champion” for that little girl in her video — and for families across the nation — she’d stop supporting policies that force families to move in order to escape failing, sclerotic school systems. She would support school choice in all forms, including school vouchers, instead of standing in the way of progress.

If Clinton actually believed what she is spouting wouldn’t Chelsea have attended public school?

Stop… really…. just stop

Liberal policies, the black mans’ problem in a nutshell. Before they riot and loot they should take a long hard look at who they elect to lead them and, have led them for the last 50 years. The businesses they burn down aren’t making policy, neither are the people whose dwellings are destroyed. Their own city councils and mayors are the policy makers, those passing laws which seem to cause such grievance, and they are mostly Democrats. Black people have a very unhealthy relationship with their party of preference, yet they still vote for the very people who continue to make life as miserable as they can for everyone.  It’s the “Legacy of Liberalism

You cannot take any people, of any color, and exempt them from the requirements of civilization — including work, behavioral standards, personal responsibility, and all the other basic things that the clever intelligentsia disdain — without ruinous consequences to them and to society at large.

Non-judgmental subsidies of counterproductive lifestyles are treating people as if they were livestock, to be fed and tended by others in a welfare state — and yet expecting them to develop as human beings have developed when facing the challenges of life themselves.
The more government intervenes, the bigger the failure of desired outcome. The Obama’s interventions for the public good haven’t done one thing to help anyone, including the “black community”….whatever that is…and, have caused more divisiveness between classes and races. Neither one has been good for the country in any way, shape or form, domestic or foreign. For their tenure in the White House it has always been about them…..mememe! No matter how many speeches, conferences, summits, and interviews they do, it’s always about one or the other of them. Must be horrible to go to an ivy league school with a major chip on ones shoulders, wear nothing but high end clothing and suits all the while poor mouthing, spend 56 million of taxpayer money for vacations to very elite resort areas, foreign exotic locales, all the while telling black children they aren’t wanted in museums because…white people. Playing identity politics has done a lot of harm to our country.

The National Guard is on standby orders from governor Kasich. An officer is on trial for an overly exuberant shooting (64 others were reprimanded) of two known criminal types. There was a huge car chase and the backfire from the car was mistaken for gunshots. He’s being scapegoated to cover the pols behinds. Not until this “incident” were the pursuit laws changed. What a lot of people screaming and hating do not seem to realize, is their local law enforcement only does what it’s told by lawmakers. It’s the laws Dems pass in most urban environments to please their benefactors that is the real problem, not the law enforcers.  There really are some very dumb laws on the books, at least here in my city. Prime example; it is illegal to exit your vehicle from the drivers’ side on any city street. Needless to say, our police officers don’t bother to enforce that one. They have more common sense than the pols.

Brelo, 31, a Cleveland police officer, is charged with voluntary manslaughter in connection with a Nov. 29, 2012 police chase and shooting that ended in the deaths of Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams. The verdict could be announced any day now.

Throughout the month-long trial, prosecutors argued Brelo acted unreasonably and with the intent to kill when he jumped on the hood of Russell’s car and fired 15 final shots down at the two people. Defense attorneys argued that Brelo, like the other 12 officers who also fired shots, was afraid for his life and therefore justified in any use of force.

The city, district and community groups are concerned about possible rioting after recent demonstrations in Baltimore and other cities turned violent.

Outsiders, communists and other nefarious agitators, have been doing their level best to bring out protestors,  so far it hasn’t worked out to their advantage. Hopefully we won’t see the ignorance that is being demonstrated in other cities when the verdict is handed down on Monday May 18th.

Big question of the day; Why do Dem supporters always get snookered in the end? No matter how irrational a law is, they will believe it will benefit all mankind. The inevitable happens and they say things like “I didn’t believe it would affect me.” or “I didn’t know it would be like this.”. They heaped derision along with foul name calling during the Obamacare debates. Turns out we were right ….again.

Oops: Obamacare Enrollees Forced To Unexpectedly Pay IRS For Billions in Subsidies Agency Improperly Gave Away

Committee investigators also point to an analysis by H&R Block that found almost two-thirds of its filers receiving an ObamaCare tax credit owed the government at the end of the year. On average, those filers were required to repay more than $700 of their ObamaCare subsidies. The study found most customers claiming the credits were confused about the requirements.

Of course they were “confused”,  the law kept changing by executive fiat from day one.

If the pols are listening, doubtful, stop….really…just stop “helping” us.

What Will It Take?

1.8 billion, that’s how much Baltimore received from the Obama stimulus.

Of this amount, 467.1 million went to education; 206.1 million to the environment; 24 million to “family”; 16.1 million to infrastructure; 15.2 million to transportation; 11.9 million to housing; and 3.1 million to job training.

Uh-huh, seems throwing more taxpayer money at the problems of certain urban areas just isn’t working. Actually decades of Democrats running the cities isn’t working, neither are the residents. Why are the kids in the public schools system reading from 20 year old books? 467.1 million should have covered new books, computer labs, all to the benefit of the students. None of it obviously was used for gains in students’ education. People of Baltimore, just like every midsized city, should be zoning in on the way taxpayer stimulus was spent, it certainly wasn’t on them.

Following the violent riots on Monday evening that resulted in over 235 arrests, 15 torched buildings, 144 destroyed vehicles, and 20 injured police officers, President Obama spoke on the issue.

Obama called for more early education programs, criminal justice reform, and “making investments so that [youth] can get the training they need to find jobs.”

“There’s a bunch of my agenda that would make a difference right now in that,” he said.

The president then proceeded to blame the Republican-controlled Congress for not implementing his agenda.

BO’s “agenda”, which absolutely has not worked out for anyone but the wealthiest, is to keep piling more tax burdens on the middle class (mostly suburbia) to placate a lot of ne’erdowells in the inner city, meaning Dem Pols. He won’t ever admit the Dem meme “it’s for the kids” is nothing more than a huge lie. More money “for the schools” basically covers benefits for teachers’ unions, retirement, etc. The kids get zero benefit from tax increases or stimulus.

I listened as one father kept whining about his kid, sitting in jail, who had destroyed a police car and made the front pages of local papers. He thought it was just horrible that his kid had to be bailed. He said “isn’t a human life more important than a broken window?”  My question to him is “Where were you and your concern when your kid was rioting?”  One guy, an adult,  being interviewed was complaining about not having a free cell phone.  He thought it was his “right” to have one for free. Can’t make this stuff up!

An annoying reality;

For partisan liberals, the spate of urban violence that has characterized anti-law enforcement demonstrations and riots for nearly one year has presented both an opportunity and a challenge. While many Democrats have welcomed the spotlight on policing, urban poverty, and the plight of inner city minorities, they have also been confronted with the unsatisfying results of generations of monopoly Democratic governance. [snip]

To most neutral observers, it seems conflicting to argue that urban minorities have been neglected and abused for decades, and yet a GOP governor who hasn’t been in office for 18 weeks is responsible for this latest spasm of violence.

That didn’t stop Edwards from arguing that more spending and wealth redistribution – e.g. the Democratic platform – is the only cure for what ails Baltimore.

When Wallace noted that Baltimore spends the third highest amount per capita on its public schools “and the schools were still lousy,” Edwards declined to speculate on where that money was going. She merely asserted that it had been improperly allocated.

Handouts instead of a hand up is the way Dems placate minorities. Next we will be certain to hear “more money” is needed to ease the pressure for the special snowflakes making their demands. When Dems were setting up the cyclical of generational welfare, none thought of the consequences.  If everything is given, there is no need for education, personal responsibility, or even a job. The Dem nanny state approach to solving problems isn’t working, has never worked and, will never work. Their ideas always include more taxes on small business and property owners, more rules and regulations.  When the businesses leave and property owners sell out and leave due to the higher taxes, Dems are flummoxed. They can’t understand why. Yes, they are that stupid and so are the voters who keep electing them. A Disturbing Intersection

It used to be that both blue-collar and white-collar workers held stable jobs, and living standards for all social classes steadily rose. That model has buckled and bowed until it no longer exists, and people are getting left behind at a staggering rate.

The gap between all things big (government, business, banks), the American people, and their political leaders is greater today than at any time since our little quarrel with England in the 1770s.

We are over-regulated, forgotten and over-taxed by a national capital that has become the Versailles of its time — the seat of not only political power but of unprecedented wealth, with a desire to emulate Hollywood rather than the regular people who have carried the burden of building and protecting that pretentious city.

The most self serving demi-gods (as they see themselves) are the very people (politicians) who decide how they can cause the most division and anger among the populous to keep themselves in power. Our government has become the most corrupt and ineffective it has ever been. “We the people” have all been marginalized and we should be angry, but not with each other. We didn’t create this mess, the crony capitalists of Versailles on the Potomac did for their own personal gains. We just got stuck with all the bills.

“For the kids”. We hear this all the time and it’s never been less true then now. Charged and found guilty under the RICO law. Does anyone really think this is an isolated incident?  via American Thinker

Thirty-five Atlanta educators in all were indicted in 2013 on charges including racketeering, making false statements, and theft.  Many pleaded guilty before the trial, and some of them testified at the months-long affair.  On April 1, 2015, eleven defendants were convicted of racketeering and falsifying test results to collect bonuses or keep their jobs (some claimed that they were threatened with losing their jobs if they did not participate in the cheating).  Superintendent Beverly Hall, the alleged ringleader, is reported to have received up to $500,000 in payouts.  On April 14, 2015, ten of the eleven educators (Superintendent Beverly Hall died a month before) were sentenced to up to 20 years in prison (including probation time).

Please, make it stop. “Wear a hijab to school day” didn’t go quite as planned in a school in OH. Embracing misogyny is no way to teach about diversity.  via Hot Air

Intense criticism has prompted an Ohio high school’s principal to cancel a student event in which girls would celebrate diversity by spending a day wearing a Muslim headscarf. Mason High School Mindy McCarty-Stewart also issued an apology in an email Thursday to district families, saying the intent of the April 23 student-led event was meant to be positive, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.  [snip]

When you ignore the reality of Islam’s oppressive 8th century ideas about women and celebrate one of the major symbols of that oppression — the hijab — you give aid and comfort to the very people and ideas you are supposed to be fighting.

One hundred years….Obama cowardice. via Just One Minute

ISTANBUL — The European Parliament adopted a resolution Wednesday commemorating the centennial of the Armenian genocide and urged Turkey to recognize that event.

Turkey has pledged to disregard the European Parliament, the European Union’s legislature, which has passed similar measures twice before.

But this one was particularly likely to add fuel to the historical debate over the characterization of the genocide, which began in 1915 and took place over several years during World War I and the breakup of the Ottoman Empire. The debate gained momentum on Sunday after Pope Francis referred to the event as “the first genocide of the 20th century.”

Hillary in 2012

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Thursday said the recognition of the Armenian Genocide by the US “opens a door that is a very dangerous one to go through.” This is the same Hillary Clinton who, four years ago, pledged that she would recognize the Genocide as President of the United States.

Responding to a question from a participant of a Town Hall Meeting on Thursday, who asked why the US does not recognize the Genocide, Clinton characterized the Armenian Genocide as an historical issue and not a political one.

“I think it’s fair to say that this has always been viewed, and I think properly so, as a matter of historical debate and conclusions rather than political. And I think that is the right posture for the United States Government to be in, because whatever the terrible event might be or the high emotions that it represents, to try to use government power to resolve historical issues, I think, opens a door that is a very dangerous one to go through. So the issue is a very emotional one; I recognize that and I have great sympathy for those who are just so incredibly passionate about it,” Clinton told the audience.

Is Clinton someone you really want to vote for?  As always, political expediency is much more important than the historical truth.  What else would she do or say for political expediency? Who else would she appease? We already know the answer, Benghazi.  Leopards never change their spots, neither will Hillary.

The Inevitable Hillary

Clinton stopped at a Chipotle in OH, no one recognized her. How “inevitable” is she really?

Hillary 2016 Must have been the sunglasses. via Daily Mail

The LSM will be running with the “inevitable” meme for the next year. After all, they have handpicked her to be the next WON, to break that glass ceiling for the sake of women everywhere because….it’s her turn and she has lady parts. Two great reasons to vote for a candidate. (insert sarc tag here)  Mostly the LSM and other Hillary backers want to see Bill Clinton back in the White House. This would be the only way that could happen. (you have to think like a Democrat to get this) It would also be the only way Chelsea could hold down an actual job.

I am sorry, but I have no patience with Chelsea’s progressivism and its contrast with her hauteur, her luxurious lifestyle, her high-paying glamorous jobs brought her way by family connections, and her conspicuous lack of achievement or creativity in any of those jobs.  Her debut as a $600,000-a-year rookie correspondent at NBC was downright embarrassing.  She didn’t last very long in the offices of McKinsey & Company, where only the hardest-charging, brainiest associates survive.

“She’s fought children and families all her career”.  So has every other Democrat, they just don’t say it.  Not to worry, the LSM will overcompensate for any and all gaffes. It’s their job to prop Hillary (and Bill) up.

“Every box was checked,” Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd glowed. “They put out the campaign memo that said ‘We’re going to be a united team, there’s no back biting.’ The video had every part of Democratic coalition represented.”

Indeed, Vox went so far as to itemize the members of the Democratic Party’s “Coalition of the Ascendant” who were represented in Clinton’s video. Vox’s Matt Yglesias didn’t see white collar workers versus service professionals, homeowners versus renters, married or unmarried, childless or parents represented in that video. Merely skin color, gender, and sexuality:…snip

“Then we found out about the road trip and I thought, oh, there’s some spontaneity; it actually felt as if she was having fun,” Todd added, still gushing over Clinton’s campaign debut. “The road trip gives it some humanity. That’s what you really needed at the end. So you throw that in there, you take a B+ launch and make it an A.”

Notice on the much touted road trip Clinton hasn’t really spoken to anyone. She wants to be the “champion” of the middle class but, doesn’t want to hear what any of them have to say, just photo ops to show the country how much she cares. If she honestly cared, she would have told the country the truth about Benghazi. Traveling in a well appointed van to Iowa, what difference does that make? It’s still all about her and the Dem Party line, no more, no less. She is desperate for her coronation and will say anything to get there.

Just a thought

The Gods of the Copybook Headings

AS I PASS through my incarnations in every age and race,
I make my proper prostrations to the Gods of the Market Place.
Peering through reverent fingers I watch them flourish and fall,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings, I notice, outlast them all.

We were living in trees when they met us. They showed us each in turn
That Water would certainly wet us, as Fire would certainly burn:
But we found them lacking in Uplift, Vision and Breadth of Mind,
So we left them to teach the Gorillas while we followed the March of Mankind.

We moved as the Spirit listed. They never altered their pace,
Being neither cloud nor wind-borne like the Gods of the Market Place,
But they always caught up with our progress, and presently word would come
That a tribe had been wiped off its icefield, or the lights had gone out in Rome.

With the Hopes that our World is built on they were utterly out of touch,
They denied that the Moon was Stilton; they denied she was even Dutch;
They denied that Wishes were Horses; they denied that a Pig had Wings;
So we worshipped the Gods of the Market Who promised these beautiful things.

When the Cambrian measures were forming, They promised perpetual peace.
They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.
But when we disarmed They sold us and delivered us bound to our foe,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “Stick to the Devil you know.”

On the first Feminian Sandstones we were promised the Fuller Life
(Which started by loving our neighbour and ended by loving his wife)
Till our women had no more children and the men lost reason and faith,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “The Wages of Sin is Death.”

In the Carboniferous Epoch we were promised abundance for all,
By robbing selected Peter to pay for collective Paul;
But, though we had plenty of money, there was nothing our money could buy,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “If you don’t work you die.”

Then the Gods of the Market tumbled, and their smooth-tongued wizards withdrew
And the hearts of the meanest were humbled and began to believe it was true
That All is not Gold that Glitters, and Two and Two make Four
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings limped up to explain it once more.

As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man
There are only four things certain since Social Progress began.
That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,
And the burnt Fool’s bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire;

And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins,
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!”

 

Seems appropriate for the Age of Obama.

 

 

Rage Whining, the new rage taking over on the left

It isn’t productive, doesn’t have any solutions, just a lot of angst and pseudo-outrage. There is no having a conversation with the left. They become outraged when you point out facts, it takes the air right out of them, and they become more outraged that facts are getting in the way of their beliefs. The left doesn’t understand the difference between “beliefs” and “facts”. They need “enemies” to justify their outrage. That level of never ending temper tantrums has to be exhausting.

It is quickly becoming a “style of politics” that screams out for groupthink and casts everyone else as the “enemy”. The outrage is part of the every day news cycle, journalists (ahem) are also outraged by outrage on the left. They do so love to pile on the outrage to make the outraged group seem legitimate. Even our pols are outraged. Governors are outraged by a state, not their state, passing a law which would give a business accused of discrimination their day in court instead of being investigated and fined by coercive government. They haven’t read the bill, but outrage doesn’t need facts, just a belief.

Obama is the head of the perpetual outrage people. When hasn’t he been outraged over something? (it’s an incredibly long list of outrages) But, when he becomes outraged heads roll and, I do mean that literally. Think Libya, Egypt, Syria, Iraq, lots of heads rolling in those countries. His outrage has hit all of us domestically too. Our police forces all over the US have targets on their backs now due to Obama’s selective outrage. He tells Hispanics to “fight their enemies”, that would be everyone who isn’t Hispanic. He has to keep groups outraged, it’s the shiny object he uses to distract.

Most of the outrage that takes place is in the bright blue model where most of the outraged live or travel to so everyone knows they’re outraged. How dare anyone have a nice brunch with their family, can’t you see how outraged they are with you? It doesn’t matter whether you are complicit in the latest outrage or not. You have to feel and know their outrage and be silent. All the while, the perpetually outraged doesn’t see the implosion coming, they are starting to eat their own. Progressives have created a Frankenstein

These are miserable people, and very few of us would voluntarily spend any more time with them than we must: The p.c. style of politics has one serious, possibly fatal drawback: It is exhausting. Claims of victimhood that are useful within the left-wing subculture may alienate much of America. The movement’s dour puritanism can move people to outrage, but it may prove ill suited to the hopeful mood required of mass politics. Nor does it bode well for the movement’s longevity that many of its allies are worn out. “It seems to me now that the public face of social liberalism has ceased to seem positive, joyful, human, and freeing,” confessed the progressive writer Freddie deBoer. “There are so many ways to step on a land mine now, so many terms that have become forbidden, so many attitudes that will get you cast out if you even appear to hold them. I’m far from alone in feeling that it’s typically not worth it to engage, given the risks.” Goldber wrote recently about people “who feel emotionally savaged by their involvement in [online feminism] — not because of sexist trolls, but because of the slashing righteousness of other feminists.” Former Feministing editor Samhita Mukhopadhyay told her, “Everyone is so scared to speak right now.”
If everyone is too scared to speak, maybe those who are should rethink joining in with perpetually outraged groupthink and think for themselves. The perpetually outraged won’t get over it but, your life will be better without them. Nothing aggravates the left more than a happy person who ignores their outrage.

Can’t MakeThis Stuff Up

Obama was at the City Club in Cleveland and made a total ass of himself. Reaching for straws his new “suggestion” is for a law to make it mandatory to vote. According to the Constitutional scholar, that would be the only way to even things out when it came to the enormous amount of cash flow in the elections. He looked and sounded like a first year high school kid on a freshman debate team, unsure and gawky. Obama has become a major embarrassment and his lackeys and the lapdog media can’t change that perception. As he awkwardly explained his reasoning there was no applause from the audience. Not a single sound was heard. It was beyond pathetic. He should stop going off TOTUS since he is not a natural speaker and doesn’t know how to talk to a crowd.  Other than deciding we should have only the rights dictated by him, he spent his time whining about how the R-words were being mean to him. The AFL-CIO, which is pretty much behind any Dem who is still breathing, wasn’t charmed by BO either. http://www.cleveland.com/open/index.ssf/2015/03/president_barack_obama_brings_1.html The comments are more interesting than the article.

Huggy feely MO also had her awkward moments while explaining to the Japanese why it’s important to educate their girls. Her first greet and meet with the Emperor was more than a little strange. She didn’t know whether to bow, curtsy or shake hands. So, in her own inimitable way she did all three…at once. Made for an interesting encounter.  MO awkward

MO awkward 2 The same kind of tact is seen when she greeted the First Lady of Japan. They are definitely not the huggy feely type of people, feeling it is too impolite to grab at another person. The grimace on the FLOJ pretty much tells the story. Why does that loony woman have to be so grabby? You would think she would learn protocol when visiting a foreign country.

Why the hell would any Judge believe anything the DOJ said? It’s evident they do what they want in spite of injunctions and lie to cover up their illegal activities. from Breitbart 

  The U.S. Government lied to a federal judge, misrepresented facts and illegally gave 100,081 illegal aliens immigration status despite a pending lawsuit and an injunction. That is the argument that attorneys representing Texas and more than two dozen other states made. During the heated court hearing Andrew Hanen, a U.S. District Court Judge, said that the apparent violation had made him look like an idiot since he initially believed the U.S. Government.

Deception is the way they do business in the Department of Injustice.

You must have heard about the EPA deciding that guests are using waaaay too much water in hotel rooms. They have a fix for that, monitoring water usage.

 In the view of Big Government specialists, you are usually the problem when they address any challenge. And since you are the nail and they are the hammer, it’s their job to correct your behavior. We can only wonder how many more grants such as this one are floating around out there.

Well, wonder no more there is another grant “floating around out there” to study how backyard barbecues are destroying the planet.  The EPA will be coming for the hot tubs soon, the next scourge of pollution.

Doing Dumb Stuff

The White House has lost and the R-words in the Senate have won. No matter what the lapdog media says, Cotton was no fool when making it very clear what clout the Senate had in regards to a non-binding agreement with any country. Liberals were “outraged”, their usual stance, calling the 47 Senators “traitors” and other sundry nastiness including a petition to have them brought up on charges of treason. But, that letter let the cat out of the bag. The plan all along was to use the UN Security Council to make an end run around the Senate. What has been called a “bilateral deal” is nothing more than a ploy to have this deal backed up by a UN Security resolution which the Mullahs felt would bind the US to the so called “treaty”. If anyone thinks the White House wasn’t involved in this ploy, think again. It is exactly what they were planning on doing. Got to admire those Senators that signed the Cotton letter. From Breitbart….

Secretary of State John Kerry said that Cotton’s letter was “unconstitutional” and that “they cannot change an executive agreement.” He continued by saying that the letter was “unprecedented, unprecedented. …It’s false information and directly calculated to interfere, and basically say, ‘Don’t negotiate with them, you’ve got to negotiate with 535 members of Congress.’”

Of course, it is not unprecedented for Congress to involve itself in foreign policy in precisely the way that Cotton and 46 other Republican senators did. And Barack Obama reportedly contacted Iran through back channels before his election to encourage them not to cut a deal with President George W. Bush; he’d be much more helpful to the mullahs after his inevitable election.

Now the Obama administration has already removed Iran from the list of terrorists. See how “helpful” he is to the Mullahs?

“Many people are already making plans for Iran’s integration into the regional and world economy, particularly the Europeans and the Asians, who see Iran as an unprecedented opportunity to do business,” said Dubai-based geopolitical analyst Theodore Karasik. “Because the country’s infrastructure is literally 30 years behind, every sector or commodity is open … Iran is already preparing for this.”

And that’s how you bring an economy, ours and the EU, back to life again. Human Rights abuses and terrorism be damned. That is some huge ass kissing! Dissidents are criticizing Obama and sending letters smuggled out of Iran.

“When the people of Iran asked you to support them against the tyranny of the Shia clerics over five years ago you, the president of the most powerful country on earth, were secretly writing letters to the dictator of Iran,” he writes in the letter, which was smuggled out of Iran by human rights activists and provided to the Foundation for Democracy in Iran, an advocacy group.

Obama’s outreach has only empowered Ali Khamenei, Iran’s supreme leader, writes Tabarzadi, who says he shares a prison cell with Saeed Abedini.

“In June 2009, as Khamenei ruthlessly ordered his paramilitary forces to kill people on the streets and on university campuses, imprisoning and torturing journalists, intellectuals, the young and the old mercilessly, your friendly communications with the tyrant of Iran continued in the name of the people of the United States, ignoring the human rights of the people of Iran,” the letter states. “You helped Khamenei to continue his Islamic tyranny in the name of Allah and Islam.”

“The Islamic clerics have taken our nation hostage to their fanatical Islamic tyranny,” he adds. “In 2009 when the people of Iran loudly and clearly asked for your support for their freedom and sovereignty, you ignored us and empowered the tyrants to imprison, torture, and kill us.”

 

Speaking of backstabbing, who doesn’t think Obama and Val-Jar didn’t set Clinton up. They knew she had the “private e-mail server” and certainly didn’t mention that they would not accept mail from that particular account. They admitted that e-mail was sent to Obama from that particular address. Does anyone honestly believe it wasn’t noticed? That is the hole card to keep Clinton out of the race in 2016. If that doesn’t work there are the rumors emanating from the White House of “foreign donations” which may be a conflict of interest. Clinton certainly dug her own hole by trusting Obama who never had the intention of backing her in the 2016 Presidential race. She got sucked in by her own ego and now has been left to twist in the wind. Wonder how she feels about spewing the White House talking points on Benghazi now. While I don’t support Clinton, it’s very unsettling to watch the unethical behavior of those who claim to be our superiors in every way use these type of thug tactics. The White House is denying the leaks but, we all know how they operate in the age of Obama.

 

While Obama is meddling in the 2016 elections, his lackeys are busy, again, meddling in the ME. Israeli elections to be exact. Breaking the law is something Obama and his lackeys are not concerned about. After all laws are for the little people. Free Beacon has an account of their illegal activities.

The PeaceWorks Network Foundation—a nonprofit linked to Obama campaign figures and also known as OneVoice—was identified in a January letter authored by U.S. lawmakers as having funneled money to campaign-related activities in the upcoming election despite being incorporated as a 501(c)(3) organization. Such organizations are forbidden from engaging in foreign or domestic political campaign activities.

PeaceWorks moved to create a new organization that could engage in such electoral activities after the letter was issued, new documents obtained by the Free Beacon show. The new organization, named PeaceWorks Action Inc., was incorporated in Delaware in February 2015.

However, multiple sources familiar with the controversy said the establishment of that new organization would not shield the earlier activities of the original 501(c)(3) organization from U.S. law.

In my view Obama deserves all the disdain that can be heaped upon him. He makes the US look petty and small and, is the worse pResident this country has ever voted in to the highest office of our land.

We are coming o Rome. Islamic state threatens to throw homosexuals from the leaning tower of “pizza”.

Hilarity ensues……  leaning-tower-of-pizza

 

Politicalization of genocide. Susan Rice is complicit on more then one occasion.

Indeed, Madeleine Albright, then the American Ambassador to the UN, opposed leaving even this tiny UN force. She also pressured other countries “to duck, as the death toll leapt from thousands to tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands … the absolute low point in her career as a stateswoman.”

In a 2001 article published in The Atlantic, Samantha Power, author of the Pulitzer-Prize winning A Problem from Hell who is now Rice’s successor as American Ambassador to the United Nations, referred to Rice and her colleagues in the Clinton Administration as Bystanders to Genocide. She quotes Rice in her 2002 book as saying, “If we use the word ‘genocide’ and are seen as doing nothing, what will be the effect on the November.

How cold blooded and calculating can any human being be?

That Rice would have brought up the midterm elections as a more important consideration than stopping the mass murder of so many men, women, and children that their bodies were damming the rivers of Rwanda is one of the most heartbreaking pronouncements ever uttered by American official.

But she did not stop there.

Rice then joined Madeline Albright, Anthony Lake, and Warren Christopher as part of a coordinated effort not only to impede UN action to stop the Rwandan genocide but to minimize public opposition to American inaction by removing words like “genocide” and “ethnic cleansing” from government communications on the subject.

“Never again”, for the Democrats, has turned into a huge “never mind”. I guess #black lives only matter in politics than genocide when Rice was in the Clinton Administration and now in the Obama Administration. Asking anyone to vote Democrat is asking them to support genocide on a massive scale, over and over again. Don’t think for one second Hillary wasn’t aware of this either.

 

Egypt has finally made their move…declares Hamas a terrorist org.

“It has been proven without any doubt that the movement has committed acts of sabotage, assassinations and the killing of innocent civilians and members of the armed forces and police in Egypt,” the court wrote, according to state news agency MENA.

The ruling said that Hamas’ fighters had used heavy weapons against the army, and that the group was colluding with the Muslim Brotherhood, which Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi has described as the root of extremism. Morsi belonged to the Brotherhood.

“It has been also ascertained with documents that (Hamas) has carried out bombings that have taken lives and destroyed institutions and targeted civilians and the armed forces personnel,” the ruling said. “This movement works for the interests of the terrorist Brotherhood organization.”

On its official website, Hamas called the decision a “shocking and dangerous” one that targeted the Palestinian people.

Here’s a suggestion to the Palestinians, stop killing Israelis and Egyptians. That’s why there is a wall between you and them on both sides of Gaza.
