Friday Bits and Pieces
Happy Valentine’s Day Little Birdies!
For the past five years the left couldn’t find one thing wrong with anything BO was doing. We were all “racist haters” denying the Preezy his full due. When we refused to go along to get along, we were vilified. Well, funny how it’s all beginning to change. ‘The Thing Speaks for Itself’
Legal scholar Turley now feels that it is incumbent upon him to appear on TheKelly File with Megyn Kelly to point out a minor detail that the “fundamental transformer” would probably be flattered to hear, which is that “the framers would be horrified because everything they did was to create balance between the branches of government, and we’ve lost that.”
Turley’s forewarning: “What we’re seeing now is the usurpation of authority that’s unprecedented in this country.”
The Tired Ones are admitting it is getting harder to “defend” Obamacare. Question of the day; Why do they feel the need to defend it anyway? If the law is so great it doesn’t need any defense from the left wing media. Their statements only prove what we have been saying for years, the LSM is definitely in the tank for whatever BO ‘decides’ is “fair and right”. Talk about belonging to a “cult of personality”. Giving a pass to the mess known as Obamacare because…..Obama!
Advocates for a strong executive branch, including me, have given the White House a pass on its rule-making authority, because implementing such a complicated law requires flexibility. But the law may be getting stretched to the point of breaking. Think of the ACA as a game of Jenga: Adjust one piece and the rest are affected; adjust too many and it falls.
If not illegal, the changes are fueling suspicion among Obama-loathing conservatives, and confusion among the rest of us. Even the law’s most fervent supporters are frustrated.
Speaking of ‘usurping authority’, IRS ObamaCare “self-attestation” for businesses: adding irrationality to lawlessness. BO just making it up on a daily whim. “I’m the President. I can do anything I want”.
In other words, the legal justification for this “self-attestation” springs from an illegal action by the Obama administration, as a means to include the company in the increasingly-arbitrary application of regulation based on ignoring the statutes of the law itself. It’s lawless lunacy, certainly. But as I argued in my column, that’s precisely the outcome predicted by Hayek in The Road to Serfdom.
Obama terrified me from the very beginning of his run for the Presidency. he made no sense, his speeches were filled with nonsense, he self glorified, the adulation for him as a candidate was insane (and still is). Obama’s cult of personality has turned US into ‘a nation of enablers’
It’s been apparent from the moment Obama claimed what he called a “historic” Democratic nomination victory in a June 3, 2008, speech in St. Paul, Minn., when he said that “this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our Image as the last, best hope on Earth.”
The cult of Obama adoration has since become so unbearable the White House press corps revolted last year, denouncing the government-funded propaganda that puts the president front and center into everything, even celebrations of pivotal historical events such as the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy‘s assassination.
It’s gotten to the point where it’s moved beyond ridicule into self-parody.
Never thought I would agree with the Iranians on anything…. Mocking Obama
So this is my foreign policy advice to the Americans when dealing with Iran: First of all, Mr. Obama, don’t waste a ton of bricks. I sense a personal problem here… Instead of wasting a ton of bricks, take just one brick, and knock it against your head. Perhaps parts of his brain will swap places, and his perspective will change.
BO should be impeached….his lawlessness and disregard for the Constitution is a price none of us, Dems or Repubs, should tolerate. Democrats had better think long and hard, they won’t be the “majority” forever. BO has set a precedent neither party should go along with just to get along.
