Obama Unmasked Over Time By “Gaffes” By: Christopher G. Adamo

The liberal media is in full damage control mode, owing to Barack Obama’s latest blunder. Assessing the nation’s ongoing economic struggles during a June 8 press conference, he flatly stated “The private sector is doing fine. Where we’re seeing weaknesses in our economy have to do with state and local governments.” It must be understood here that the real blunder was not his completely reversed portrayal of the abysmal private sector business climate in comparison to the realm of government jobs. Rather, it was the fact that he let this very telling bit of information slip, and thus revealed yet another bit of evidence marking him as a classic statist.

America immediately reacted to his comment with shock and outrage, since it not only reflects an inherent indifference to the struggles of common citizens on Main Street, but also gives insight as to his real priorities, which are to continue to amass wealth and power within government. Anyone who naively held expectations that he might attempt to truly work for the betterment of the American people has another reason to despair. Since his inauguration, Barack Obama has never sincerely endeavored to take the proper action to bring America out of its unending recession. And by his words, he reveals that he still has absolutely no intention of doing so.

In his twisted Keynesian worldview, private business and commerce is not the foundation for America’s prosperity. Rather, they are an inherently sinister outgrowth of greed and materialism, which must be constantly restrained and limited, for the general good of society, by those beneficent power brokers in high office. Concurrently, the wealth and productivity generated from the private sector inexplicably provides the lifeblood of government, by which it can empower itself to right all of the perceived wrongs of a capitalist culture.

Of course these two concepts are diametrically opposed to each other. And it is primarily for that reason that the Obama Administration has tirelessly worked for the expansion of the state, which ultimately redounds to the detriment of the American economy. Nevertheless, the established orthodoxy of the left is too ingrained in the minds of its advocates for it to ever be seriously or logically questioned. Consequently, the horribly skewed policies that brought the economy crashing down in early 2009, and have kept it in the doldrums ever since, will prevail as long as this regime remains in power. Regardless of the ongoing economic disaster and the suffering it has caused at all levels, America can expect nothing from Obama or his minions but more of the policies that contributed to it.

The evidence continues to mount on every front, revealing with stark clarity who Barack Obama really is. The only point of dispute being just how much more harm to the nation will have to occur before his intellectually blind and sycophantic minions will admit the truth and concede that such a course is not some inadvertent accident.

In another unrelated “gaffe,” he once again bowed to a foreign leader. This time, it was to Mexican President Felipe Calderon. On June 18, while attending the G20 Leaders Summit in Los Cabos Mexico, he repeated the fawning gesture for which he is now famous. Clearly, after many similar occasions, it is becoming obvious to all but the most myopic that his behavior is fully intentional. Its purpose is to tell the world that under his leadership, America is being properly cut down to size, and will no longer assert itself as an arrogant superpower. And in the case of Mexico, it is another precisely timed pander to all who assert that nation’s interests over our own, as evidenced by his subsequent and unconstitutional implementation of the “Dream Act”/amnesty agenda.

In every case, it is not Barack Obama, the narcissist in chief, who is compelled to submit, it is all of America on whose behalf he grovels. Unfortunately, this message is being readily received by the rest of the world, and those nations that regard us as a competitor, whether economically, diplomatically, or militarily, are more than willing to relate to us on such terms.

Elsewhere in the Obama Administration, Attorney General Eric Holder has finally exhausted the patience of the U.S. House of Representatives. Congressman Darryl Issa (R.-CA) is proceeding with a contempt of Congress vote against Holder. In what can only be explained as a stalling action, Holder refuses to comply with congressional requests for information regarding the flagrantly illegal “Operation Fast and Furious,” by which Mexican drug lords were supplied with assault weapons.

Holder is committing his own share of “gaffes,” some of which border on the embarrassingly ridiculous. In recent testimony, he attempted to make the case that e-mail references to “Fast and Furious” were taken out of context, and did not actually refer to “Operation Fast and Furious.” Of course he came to the hearing dripping with credibility, having already established a shameless track record of flagrant bias and unprecedented politicization of the Justice Department.

On a more patently serious note, the budding controversy of national security “leaks,” very likely originating from the White House, are no more reflective of inadvertent stumbles than any of the other undercutting actions of the Obama Administration. While inappropriate releases of information occur with unfortunate regularity in Washington, this situation has clearly caused grave damage to America’s diplomatic and intelligence efforts. Yet it was presented as an effort to boost Obama’s standing among the perennially gullible. As such, it warrants a thorough investigation, requiring full cooperation from the Obama White House. Of course, this presumes that the administration is really interested in identifying the culprit. Therefore, the net result is that investigators can only expect more delay tactics, stonewalling, and obfuscation.

Barack Obama’s track record of humiliating and dangerous actions, going all the way back to his boorish 2009 return of the Winston Churchill bust to England, and his “gift” of an i-pod containing recordings of his speeches to Queen Elizabeth (no bowing or reverence there) have clearly been intentional and purposeful. Since taking the White House, he has been unwavering in his efforts to demean and degrade this nation in the eyes of the world. When this grim truth is acknowledged, all of the other pieces fit.

ATF leader’s email could be Fast and Furious smoking gun and Holder admitted Obama can’t shield it By Matthew Boyle

A single internal Department of Justice email could be the smoking-gun document in the Operation Fast and Furious scandal — if it turns out to contain what congressional investigators have said it does.

The document would establish that wiretap application documents show senior DOJ officials knew about and approved the gunwalking tactic in Fast and Furious. This is the opposite of what Attorney General Eric Holder and House oversight committee ranking Democratic member Rep. Elijah Cummings have claimed.

It appears that email would also prove senior DOJ officials, likely including Holder himself, knew in March 2011 that a Feb. 4, 2011 letter from the DOJ to Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley falsely denied guns were permitted to “walk” into Mexico. The DOJ allowed that false letter to stand for nine more months, only withdrawing it in December 2011.

During the June 24 broadcast of Fox News Sunday, House oversight committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa cited the email as a “good example” of a specific document his committee knows Holder is hiding from Congress.
[…]
It appears Republican congressional investigators first learned of the Melson email’s existence on July 4, 2011, when Melson chose to give a lengthy deposition on Fast and Furious without DOJ and ATF lawyers present. Grassley told Holder during the Senate hearing that congressional investigators first requested that the DOJ provide Congress with that email during July 2011, shortly after Melson made his then-secret trip across town to Capitol Hill.

The wiretap documents themselves are under federal court seal, leaving Grassley and Issa to tussle with Holder and Cumming about what they might show. Issa has said a whistleblower provided copies to his committee.

Auto Bailout Was Really Just a UAW Bailout by Amy Payne

President Obama told the United Auto Workers (UAW) in February not to listen to critics of the auto bailout who said union members “made out like bandits—that saving the auto industry was just about paying back the unions.” “Really?” Obama said. “I mean, even by the standards of this town [Washington], that’s a load of you-know-what.”

New research from Heritage labor economist James Sherk proves that it was, in fact, a load of truth.

The Treasury Department estimates that taxpayers will lose $23 billion on the auto bailout. Sherk and co-author Todd Zywicki find that none of these losses came from saving jobs, but instead went to prop up the compensation of some of the most highly paid workers in America. They write:

    We estimate that the Administration redistributed $26.5 billion more to the UAW than it would have received had it been treated as it usually would in bankruptcy proceedings. Taxpayers lost between $20 billion and $23 billion on the auto programs. Thus, the entire loss to the taxpayers from the auto bailout comes from the funds diverted to the UAW.

435 plus 33 or 34 , and what do they do ? by T. Scott

There are 435 members of OUR House of Representatives standing for election in November along with 1/3 rd of the Senate.

I hear or read nothing telling America that Obama cannot make law and yet, the silence of those elected to represent We The People is curiously silent as the man elected to lead, like a petulant brat, has decided that the game will be played with his rules, forgetting ( on purpose ) that this nation has a well-established system of laws and rules.

Today, in a further effort to hide truth from all Americans, he seeks to use Executive Privilege to hide documents relating to the notorious Fast and Furious gun running operation – over a year after some in Congress sought better knowledge of this lame attempt to circumvent law and do something totally illegal..

The silence on Capitol Hill is deafening.

Clearly, Congressional office space needs to find a new cadre of people sent there to represent the people of the nation. Close to 468 or 469 offices should see new furnishings, new staffing and new everything as people honestly concerned with the solemn responsibility of running our nation as the people want and require replace those who have done a rather horrible job.

Why is it that Americans continue to turn a deaf ear to the crisis surrounding them – a terrible, man-made, situation that threatens the very foundations of our nation – once the bastion of freedom for the world?

Lack of decent reportage in the media can be expected but for all Americans to hear virtually nothing from those they elect is, flatly, disgusting. Were this a civilian business, they would all be fired and if financial chicanery was discovered, they would face a judge and would certainly lose all of their perks. Shouldn’t our Congress be held to the highest standard ? I would think so !!

Oh, there will be the usual gnashing of metaphorical teeth as they soon discover our discontent and react to it in their lame efforts to show us that they are on top of the situation ( s ) . Yeah, Right !!!

Perhaps it is time to close Washington and by moving our Capitol to somewhere in the geographical center of the lower 48, we might actually leave the corruption in Washington right there on the banks of the Potomac, ever to fester and eventually to die a well deserved death. Starting anew – now that is an exciting concept, isn’t it ? We The People would then be able to learn from the manifold wrongs that are now an irritation across the country, go back to our Constitution and knowing of the pitfalls of the past, do things for all the right reasons.

Damn, that is a truly exciting concept.
