Barack Obama: A Domestic Enemy of The United States

I hate to say this, but our President is a subversive.

A rogue agent. An infiltrator.

He's not quite as dangerous as Joseph Stalin, but he's getting there...bit by bit.

His lawlessness is widespread.

The seizure of the auto industry and the health care industry was not enough for him.

He appointed a variety of incompetent subversives to run important parts of our government.

Along with the help of the NLRB, he recently decided that Boeing Aircraft could not relocate a manufacturing plant of theirs to South Carolina in order to obtain more favorable labor regulations.

His message was clear: You will face my tyranny wherever you go.

Conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer has made the very salient point that Barack Obama will not respect the law. He governs by fiat. When confounded by Congress, Obama simply violates the law and creates new regulations.

One of his nastiest pieces of work are regulations that will shut down coal-powered energy plants... causing electricity rates to skyrocket and resulting in the losses of tens of thousands of jobs as these plants close due to these onerous regulations.

The facts are clear.

Barack Obama is a clear and present danger to the future of the United States of America.

His continued violations of our laws along with his continued assaults on our Constitution make him A Domestic Enemy of The United States.

Just how many illegal immigrant relatives does Obama have?

News hit yesterday that President Barack Obama has a second, previously unknown, illegal immigrant relative living here in the United States.

This uncle of his, Onyango Obama, was arrested for drunk driving in Framingham, Massachusetts. Witnesses say he almost hit a police cruiser while swerving wildly in his vehicle.

Previous to the 2008 election, it was revealed that Barack Obama had an illegal immigrant Aunt named Zeituni Onyango also living in Massachusetts. Zeituni Onyango is still happily living off the backs of the American taxpayers... much like Obama and his wrecking crew in D.C.

The bigger picture here?

Barack Obama can never be fully trusted to enforce American laws.

He has two blood relatives that he knows are illegal immigrants, but he refuses to do anything about it.

This is proof that Barack Obama is corrupt. The laws only apply to others. Not to him personally.

This backs up my previous statement from long ago....

Barack Obama is a looter and a destroyer of wealth.

Even though he is a multi-millionaire, he is content to let his freeloading relatives live off the backs of the American taxpayers.

The personal ideology on display here should be a warning for voters in 2012.

Newt Gingrich needs to give up on 2012

Newt Gingrich needs to give up on his 2012 run for the White House.

It is painful to say this, but he needs to throw in the towel before he further embarrasses himself and damages his personal brand.

Newt still has a good career as a book writer/seller and a lecture circuit favorite.

It is really a shame, because Newt is one of the smartest and most talented people in the 2012 field of candidates. His debating skills make the others look like amateurs.

Unfortunately, Newt has made some mis-steps in his career that have destroyed his chances of ever being in the White House.

One, he got exposed as being a hypocrite. He was cheating on his wife with one of his staffers at the exact same time in history that he was teaming up with other Capitol Hill residents to try and destroy President Bill Clinton because he had cheated on his wife with Monica Lewinsky.

The second unforgivable offense was that he went and made a commercial about "climate change" with then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

(For many Republicans, Nancy Pelosi sits to the right hand side of Satan.)

And most recently, Newt finished third in a Republican Straw Poll in his own home state of Georgia. He got beat by Herman Cain, who has never been elected to anything, and Ron Paul, who once ran for President as a candidate for the Libertarian Party.

It is a sad fall from grace for a man who used to be the most powerful Republican in Washington.

Jeb Bush 2012?

I still feel that there is the potential for two or three more candidates to jump into the GOP Presidential Primary contest in the next few months.

The fact that Texas Governor Rick Perry jumped into the race two weeks ago and immediately went to the top of the polls is an indication of how weak the field of candidates was.

Obama is weak and struggling in the polls right now. It may get even get worse for him.

Chris Christie keeps denying he is running, but I give him about a 50% chance.

Sarah Palin, I give about a 70% chance of running.

The potential to win the White House is a powerful magnet.

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush is being hounded by people who want him to jump into the race.

My prediction: Some powerful and wealthy donors are going to entice Jeb Bush into the race.

He will become a force, and instantly be in the top 3 candidates for 2012.

Obama: The First Infanticide President

I believe in the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.

Our rights come from God, not from government.

The primary one being the right to life.

Abortion is killing an unborn human being.
I don't support that.
I prefer adoptions and orphanages rather than killing the unborn.

And yes, then it gets complicated when the government is telling you what to do with your own body, but at some point you have to define people as separate human beings with rights of their own. The argument right now between the sides is "where do we draw that line"? Conservatives say at conception. Liberals say at birth.

Or so they say....

Obama supported an "infanticide" law in Illinois that allows doctors to ignore children born alive from botched abortions and to allow them to sit, ignored on a cold metal table until they die.
If you can defend that practice, well.....

The Food Stamp President

Folks, we now have more people on Food Stamps in this country than the populations of Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and the Netherlands ...combined!

We cannot keep going in this direction.

It is untenable and will lead to a collapse of our society.

How the Big Ten can get Notre Dame

If you follow my tweets over the past few weeks, you will see that one of the things that I am passionate about is college football. For me, there is nothing that even comes close. The Pros are just mercenaries who change teams at will..and when it comes right down to it Jerry Seinfeld quipped, "You're just rooting for the laundry."

College is a different ballgame. The team can't pack up and leave. Or change its name.
People who graduate from a school stay loyal to it for life. Even people who don't graduate, or just had a family member attend a certain school can become rabidly loyal fans. You can't buy that type of brand loyalty.

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin, so I will always be a Badger for life.
As a fan of Big Ten Football, one of our biggest frustrations has been getting Notre Dame to join our conference. Notre Dame is nationally known and draws fans from around the country.

Notre Dame is physically located close to the exact middle of the Big Ten Conference and even plays several of them on a regular basis. It makes perfect sense for them to join. The problem? Notre Dame is stubborn.

Well, I believe I have solved the problem that is Notre Dame.

Another part of the problem is that the Big Ten is very picky about academics...but we will get to that in a minute.

STEP 1 - Missouri

The Big Ten goes to 13 teams and invites Missouri. This is an easy call, as Missouri had practically been begging for inclusion to the Big Ten the year that Nebraska was accepted. They will say yes in two seconds. This adds the TV markets of Kansas City and St. Louis. Missouri also is a member of the AAU for academics, and is a good fit for the Big Ten. This pick is a no-brainer. Also, raiding the Big 12 of a good program like Missouri puts that conference close to death.

STEP 2 - Oklahoma

This choice might be a little out-of-the-box thinking, but let me continue...

Big Ten officials let Oklahoma know that they are taking Missouri, and that they might take Kansas also... which would cause the collapse of the Big 12 Conference. This would lose Oklahoma a lot of traditional rivalries ... but by accepting the Big Tens invitation...they get Nebraska, Missouri and maybe Kansas back on their schedule.

If Oklahoma hesitates at all.... The Big Ten invites Kansas. Kansas will say yes in a heartbeat because with a collapsed Big 12, they have few options left for conference alignment. After Missouri and Kansas are on board with the Big Ten, go back to Oklahoma again.

With Nebraska, Missouri, and Kansas all heading north, Oklahoma finally says yes.

STEP 3 - Notre Dame

With the new super-sized Big Ten at 15 teams, the call is made to Notre Dame. The Big Ten logically explains how the Big Ten is the right home for Notre Dame and gives them a chance to be part of a "Superconference". It gives the Fighting Irish the chance to compete for national championships every year, instead of being left out in the cold in a new era of college football.

This is where things get a bit tricky.

Notre Dame may initially balk at the offer... but the Big Ten has to let them know the repercussions of not saying yes. The Big Ten lets Notre Dame no uncertain terms...that if they say no... the Big Ten will offer their spot to Pittsburgh, or Syracuse... or they may just raid three teams from the Big East and implode that conference, too.

If Notre Dame says no...The Big Ten has to be willing to call their bluff. The Big Ten invites Pittsburgh and Syracuse and implodes the Big East.

However, faced with an uncertain future and given the chance to join a powerful Superconference that includes Michigan, Ohio State, Nebraska and Oklahoma....Notre Dame eventually gives in to the future and says yes.

The only fine detail left is that the Big Ten is reluctant to accept schools that do not have stellar academic ratings...but in the cases of Oklahoma and Notre Dame, the potential TV ratings bonanza will cause them to make an exception.

Oklahoma at Ohio State? Notre Dame at Nebraska?

Ratings heaven for the Big Ten Network.

They will get people subscribing from all over the nation.

The new Big Ten Conference Divisions:




Notre Dame
Michigan State
Ohio State
Penn State

Rebels take Tripoli

The end is near for Moammar Ghadafi. Rebels are capturing important sections of Tripoli. Several of his sons have been caught by rebels forces.

Ghadafi will probably have to flee the country within the next 48 hours.

So, a maniacal dictator falls. Good riddance.

But what now for Libya?

Will fanatical Muslims rise to power? Or will Libyans experience a painful introduction to freedom and democracy like the Iraqis? Only time will tell....

Memo to all Ron Paul supporters

Look, I don't hate Ron Paul. I actually like a lot of his ideas about Americas financial system and money supply. But he is not the right guy to be our President. His international relations views are a disaster.

And he is dangerously naive on world events.

Lately a lot of Ron Paul supporters have taken up bashing Rick Perry on my Facebook page.

I'd like to remind them of one thing.

Ron Paul wants to be our President?
He wants to do mental battle with Vladimir Putin and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad?

The 77 year-old Congressman was not hip enough to recognize a world famous comedian who was well-known for pranking people.

He did not have a single staff member who was smart enough or aware enough to tell him to avoid this interview.

You can bash away on Mitt Romney, Michele Bachmann, and Rick Perry all you want... but one thing is clear.

They are smart enough and talented enough to never put themselves in this type of foolish situation. Ron Paul wasn't.

Sarah Palin 2012 Campaign Ad

I have some bad news for Joseph Mailander.

This is a campaign ad for Sarah Palin for President 2012.

I think I'm going to give his wager money to the Palin campaign.

I figure she deserves it.

They have always doubted her.

Me? I think she is a threat to win the whole thing.

Allen West: "Maxine Waters is a 21st Century Plantation Overseer"

Here is a terrific clip from Florida Congressman Allen West. He is basically saying something that should have been said long ago.

Democratic policies do not help the African-American community.
They only encourage the further dependency and destruction of black families.

Allen West refers to himself as a modern day "Harriet Tubman" trying to led black people away from this horrible situation. And he calls out Maxine Waters, Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson as sellouts. He calls them"Plantation Overseers" who are there not to lead blacks, but to pacify them and keep them voting Democrat.

He is 100% correct about that.
You never hear other black leaders challenging the Democratic Party or threatening to leave it.

She is betraying her voters by not demanding results from Obama.

Maxine Waters is one of the worst elected officials in America.
Her voters should be embarrassed that they voted her into power.

The Twisted Minds of Liberals

I don't normally do this. I don't like to give the twisted ideology of liberalism promotion or space on my blog.

But in order to defeat liberalism, it is best to show these people for exactly who they are.

The video above is of the actress and comedian Janeane Garofalo, a wild-eyed liberal if ever there was one. She is conspiring on a TV program with fellow deranged liberal Keith Olbermann.

Her argument is simple.

The Republicans and Tea Partiers are racist.
Herman Cain is a plant for the Republicans.
Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann suffer from "Stockholm Syndrome".

All of this, of course, is lunacy that exists only in the twisted minds of liberals.

Herman Cain is popular because he had a good performance at a Presidential debate. He gave well thought out answers to serious questions. People liked him.

Maybe Janeane should talk with Congressman Allen West and tell the wildly popular Congressman how racist the Republican Party is.

And then there is Sunland-Tujungas resident strongman -- budding totalitarian Joe Barrett, who clearly wants the world to be run his way.

Barrett went on Twitter yesterday to call me a racist, homophobic, rape supporter.

This particular act of lunacy is nothing new for Barrett. In fact, it's not even the worst thing someone has said about me. (You should see the emails I get...)

But I do worry about Mr. Barretts mental health condition.

I think if I run for Congress in the new 28th District, Sunland Tujungas resident strongman just might have some type of meltdown.

Maxine Waters and her unruly Town Hall voters

This is some video of Congresswoman Maxine Waters and some of her constituents in a Town Hall meeting.

I've always felt Waters was worthless... a thinly-disguised Communist who talked about seizing oil companies from their rightful owners.

Now, it seems that voters in the black community are feeling a little disappointment in their hero, Barack Obama.

Well. I can't say this is a surprise.

African-Americans gave Barack Obama over 95% of their votes in 2008.

Why would he do anything for them?

He can take their votes for granted.

That is the danger of such foolish and blind allegiance to a political figure.

The Big 3

I believe we are down to "The Big 3" in this GOP Presidential Nomination process.

It is getting very late for anyone else to jump into the campaign. Only two people...Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey and Sarah Palin... have the potential to jump in late and have an effect on the process. But it is looking more and more with each passing day that they are not inclined to do so.

That leaves us - for the moment - with the "Big 3".

Romney, Bachmann, and Perry.

Romney is the moderate choice. The RINO in the crowd. He will have his supporters and he will probably win New Hampshire...but he is going to get killed in Iowa and South Carolina, damaging his overall chances.

Southerners are not going to vote for a Massachusetts Mormon.

I predict that Rick Perry will win South Carolina and also win the majority of delegates on Super Tuesday and he will become the eventual GOP nominee in 2012.

There seems to be a momentum swelling towards Perry, made up primarily of GOP voters who are afraid of Obama winning another four years. For these voters, Perry looks and feels like the safest bet possible.

Bachmann wins Iowa Straw Poll

Iowa has rewarded native daughter Michele Bachmann with a victory in its Republican Party Straw Poll for President in 2012. Texas Congressman Ron Paul came in a close second in the vote.

The win is a big move for Bachmann and immediately bumps her up into the elite contenders for the White House in 2012.

The win by Bachmann was so crushing to Tim Pawlenty that he dropped out of the race.

Michele Bachmann really is on a roll lately, but her influence is about to be muted by the entry of Texas Governor Rick Perry into the race.

Perry has a record of success and job creation that stands out in the field of candidates.

Bachmann will have a difficult time fending off the popular Conservative Governor.

Thaddeus McCotter, Jon Huntsman, and Newt Gingrich did poorly in the straw poll, attracting very few supporters. They should probably drop out of the race.

Yeeee-haw!! Rick Perry for President!!

My dreams came true yesterday as Governor Rick Perry entered the race for President.

It was worth the wait.

Just One More Reason To Love The Packers

"I am just going to come out and say it," said Obama, a die-hard Chicago Bears fan, said. "This hurts a little bit. This is a hard thing for a Bears fan to do. It doesn't hurt as much as the NFC championship game hurt, but it still hurts. You guys come into my house to rub it in. What are you going to do, go to Ditka's house next?"

GOP Debate in Iowa

I'll be very brief with my analysis of the debate last night.

Romney was steady and kept his lead. Bachmann was great and Newt Gingrich helped himself out a bit.

Pawlenty is done. Bachmann wiped the floor with him. He'll drop out after the first few primaries. He was always running for Vice President, anyway.

Some poor individuals didn't even get to speak. Former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson got dissed at previous debates by not being asked any questions. And he didn't get to appear here, either. Congressman Thaddeus McCotter had to endure the indignity of sitting outside in his car during the debate. That won't help his chances.

The reason I'm being very brief about this debate is the expected arrival of Texas Governor Rick Perry into this race starting tomorrow. There is a movement of momentum towards Perry right now as many are dissatisfied with the field right now. I personally think that Bachmann is the only candidate worth voting for right now. But I am supporting Rick Perry when he enters the race this week.

I think most of the candidates need to drop out when Perry announces.

I think we are down to three: Romney, Perry, and Bachmann.

And, of course, that popular woman from Alaska who keeps hanging around on the sidelines....

The High Water Mark

Last night the country changed a little bit.

Leftist Democrats, who were incensed about the dismantling of the government stranglehold over multiple public services, tried to recall multiple Republican State Senators in Wisconsin.

Teachers and Labor Unions had previously been able to dictate terms to the taxpayers for many years through their combination of size, use of force, and threats to the well-being of others. Once the Teachers Unions seized control, education wasn't about education anymore.

Wisconsinites had finally had enough. They voted against this situation.

This led to months of angry protests by teachers and their unions who thought they had eliminated the possibility of any teacher ever being fired for any reason whatsoever.
Cutbacks were unacceptable, they said.

They tried to have several State Senators recalled in order to reverse the course the current Governor had set them on.... the path to a balanced budget and sane policies.

It didn't work. They failed.

I think the left has finally hit their high water mark. Along with the certain defeat of President Obama in 2012, the left may be out of power for a decade or more.

Obamacare was the peak of the wave. It angered a sleeping public who are now intent on throwing a majority of elected officials out of office.

The wave broke and rolled back on them.

It is the beginning of the end of government monopolies on services.

The fact that it started with the common-sense folk of Wisconsin doesn't surprise me at all.

Barack Obama may be doomed

Let's face it. Barack Obama is probably on his way out.

10% unemployment, $4 a gallon gasoline and a collapsed economy are not going to make people go running to the polls to vote for Barack Obama. In fact, the unemployment rate is very troubling. Most Presidents up for re-election do not survive a rate higher than 7%.

Mitt Romney and Michele Bachmann were already proving to be competitive opponents, and now comes whispers that Texas Governor Rick Perry is going to jump into the race this week and announce his intentions at a political conference in South Carolina this weekend.

Now, several things could happen by November 2012 to improve Obamas situation, but most of these scenarios are unlikely. Obama only won the states of Indiana, Virginia, and North Carolina by tiny percentages.

It is unlikely he will win them again.

Ponzi Scheme Government

The single biggest problem we face today in the United States of America is that our leaders have created a "Ponzi Scheme" Government.

You might remember the phrase from the story of Bernie Madoff, the financier/con man who swindled people out of about 25 billion dollars. Madoff ran around bilking gullible people by promising sky-high rates of return on their investments. Many people fell for his fraudulent scheme.

When he was arrested, he took a swipe at the US Government by calling it "the biggest Ponzi Scheme" in history.

He was right about that.

The problem all started in 1971 when President Richard Nixon took our country off the Gold Standard. Prior to 1971, one U.S. dollar was the equivalent of $1 of gold held in the reserves of the United States Treasury...much of it at Fort Knox, Kentucky.

Now, we have what is known as a "fiat currency" that holds value only because our government says it does. The basic problem with this is that investors can lose faith in a government and cause the value of their money to collapse. This often happens with stunning speed.

The country of Zimbabwe has lost such faith with their currency that it takes $100 billion dollars to buy three eggs!

Unfortunately, the United States is headed in this general direction.

Excessive spending by liberal leaders has created an "entitlement society" in America, where half the people don't pay any taxes, yet believe they are entitled to the benefits awarded to those who actually do pay into the system.

Mathematically, it creates an economic fantasy world which cannot continue to exist.

If our country does not change its spending habits, it will bankrupt our nation and destroy our future.

We are approaching that day of collapse.

They can keep raising the debt ceiling. It won't work.
Eventually, it will all collapse. The numbers point that out.

Our country has to wake up and analyze its attitude towards liberal social spending programs.

If we don't do something soon, our country will collapse economically.

This is not pre-destined. We can change our spending patterns.

But we have to start now.

Wisconsins "Dirty 14"

In the midst of all the political squabbling in Wisconsin, I would like to remind my fellow Badgers that these "Dirty 14" Democrats need to be removed from power.

They abandoned their public responsibilities and duties and fled the State rather than face an embarrassing loss on a political vote. They lack the courage to lead. They have no business being involved in government.

They should be punished by voters accordingly.

If I was Governor Walker, I would have had them arrested.

Rick Perry attends "The Response"

Today is the day!

Governor Rick Perry has invited Americans to join in his event called "The Response". A call for a day of prayer and fasting.

Because this event is so fundamentally Christian, it makes liberals heads explode.
I couldn't be happier. The Governor and his fans have every right to gather and worship as they see fit.

The event is streaming live right now on!

I expect this day to be historic. I expect that the Governor may announce his run for President while at this event. If he does, it is the beginning of the end for Barack Obama.

Leaving the United Nations Behind

One of my Facebook friends made a good point today by mentioning how awful the United Nations has become. What started out as a good idea has pretty much become a bad joke.

There are too many countries in this world that are run by madmen and dictators. In the UN they get an equal vote to America or Great Britain or Israel. That fact, in itself, is stunning.

Hugo Chavez came to America to address the UN and called George W. Bush "the devil". The other UN member nations? They responded with polite applause.

This same UN is filled with representatives from Arab countries who continue to denounce Israel as a "monster" and an "occupier".

This is the same Israel that gives the Arab citizens in their country more freedom than in any other Arab country on earth.

My plan, should it ever come to pass, is to have the United States withdraw completely from the United Nations. The wording of our withdrawal documents will state that we are leaving because the organization is "filled with lawless dictators who do not respect human rights".

The document would also explain that the UN has become Anti-American, Anti-Western, Anti-Semitic, and Anti-Democratic. There are rogue states who are allowed voting privileges when they do not allow their own citizens to vote!

Chew on that one, liberals.

I would suggest they move the United Nations to Brussels.

The mad dictators can have their little America Hate-fest over there.

We have no need for it.

The Bigger Picture

Yesterday, I was watching some of the liberal leftist media -- as I sometimes do --- to get a read on what they are up to.

I found it humorous how most of them felt the Debt Ceiling budget deal was a total loss for their side. Funny, but Conservatives felt the same way.

Rachel Maddow was hilarious...but I don't know how her brain can survive spewing so many contradictory statements. She called Obama the "Deportation President". Yeah.... right.
The same President Obama who invited his illegal immigrant aunt to his inauguration ceremony? Yeah... I'm sure illegal immigrants are terrified of him.

Maddow, Ed Schulz, and Chris Matthews spewed nonsense all day log. They talked about how these "cuts" would cost about 1 - 2 million jobs. That's funny. Do they remember hearing Obama say that the "stimulus" would stop unemployment from going over 8%? Yeah...anything that government says they can do or have to take that with a grain of salt.

I wouldn't get too excited about their predictions.
Remember when Y2K was going to be the end of the world? Yeah...

What bothers me about liberals is how they fail to see the bigger picture.

The problem with government being in charge of your health care?

Government is in charge of your health care.

Government having control over your health care is just government having another way of control over you.

Can you imagine being denied surgery because you voted for the "wrong" candidate in an election?

Oh, that could never happen here..they say.

Yeah. Sure. Uh huh.

Give it some time.

Government being in control of education is another terrible idea.

Look at how they run the DMV and the Post Office.

The government once seized and took over a brothel in Nevada due to tax issues.

The government bankrupted the place within two years.
Basically, they couldn't sell booze and women to truckers in the desert.

And they want to control health care and education?

God help us....

Giffords returns, Tea Party furious with deal

A very interesting day yesterday, politically speaking.

Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Giffords returned to the House of Representatives for the first time since being wounded in an assassination attempt.

If you see the photo above, Giffords return was marred by the antics of Los Angeles-based Congressional Representatives Brad Sherman and Janice Hahn. They couldn't resist the pull of national publicity and both crammed their mugs into the frame next to Giffords on the national newsfeed.

These Democrats... it never stops with them.

Technically, I don't agree with Giffords returning and voting on important legislation. She has had a major brain injury and her level of impairment is unknown to her voters. If she were an airline pilot, a surgeon, or a police officer, she wouldn't be returning to work. I think her voters deserve some type of certification that she is still capable...but that is up to them to fight over.

The votes that were cast were a betrayal of the Tea Party.... allowing more debt and reckless behavior from the US Government.

We are only a few years away from becoming Greece at this point.

But it is good to know there were some Republican heroes who voted no.

Courageous Bachmann says no

Michele Bachmann continues to impress voters with her courageous stances against Barack Obama and those who support him.

Bachmann is flying from a campaign stop in Iowa to Washington today to oppose the new debt ceiling plan.

She and some of the more Conservative members of the House may be able to hold the line and to scrap this brokered deal.

Her own statement says it quite eloquently.

"Mr. President, I'm not sure what voice you're listening to, but I can assure you that the voice of the American people wasn't the voice that compelled Washington to act," she said in a statement after the president announced a deal with congressional leaders Sunday night. "It was you that got us into this mess, and it was you who wanted a $2.4 trillion blank check to get you through the election."

"This isn't the deal the American people 'preferred' either, Mr. President," Bachmann said in her response. "Someone has to say 'no.' I will."
