The Jackasses Won – Time For a Reality Break!

WOW, what a ride this past year!  I started this blog hoping to make a difference.  A difference for my grandchildren and my country.  I had no idea what I was up against.  Who could ever image a world where abortion, gay marriage, and legalized pot became more of an issue than jobs, economy, national security and our Constitution.  A world where the takers outnumber and outvote the makers – where free stuff is more important than freedom.  A world where the younger generation thinks more of themselves and their right to free contraception and abortion than the future of their parents, grandparents and children.  A world where the liberal media not only never challenged the liberal candidate but outright campaigned for him.

People asked if I thought Romney had a chance and I alway said he would win in a fair election.  Well, we all know now that this election wasn’t fair.  How sad that many precincts reported OVER 100% voter turnout and others reported flagrant abuse and, in some cases, illegal registration at the time of voting.  Chicago politics at its worst.  If this election is not a mandate for a national voter database and voter ID’s I don’t know what would be.  There are so many petitions for secession I can’t believe this is the outcome America really wanted.

President Obama has a lot ahead of him but I fear nothing will change. Taxes will be raised; Obamacare will suck the economy and life, literally, out of many of us; and we will be facing another fiscal crisis.  Benghazi will be stone-walled and the cover-ups will all continue.  Fast and Furious will take a back seat, temporarily, to the new Watergate.  What we do know is we have an incompetent administration that is lying to us at every turn, and they do not care who they toss under the bus.  I hope and pray Congress will NOT let the murder of four Americans go unpunished.

After being in total denial this past week, I am now disappointed, disillusioned and downright depressed at the idiocy of this country’s voting process and voting morons.  I am taking a short break from the real, and really screwed-up, world until after the holidays.  I thank you all for your support, loyalty and true patriotism.  Failure is NOT an option and I will continue the fight with my fellow bloggers, conservatives, freedom-fighters and patriots soon.

May GOD BLESS AMERICA!

 

Fewer Than 200 Reportedly Show Up for Pro-Obama Rally Featuring Stevie Wonder

President Barack Obama presents Stevie Wonder ...

Cleveland.com is reporting that fewer than 200 people showed up for a unique get-out-the-vote rally for President Obama featuring legendary musician Stevie Wonder.

 

 

Located at Cleveland State University, Brandon Blackwell of The Plain Dealer writes that the event was primarily to encourage early voting, but that perhaps Obama supporters weren’t given enough warning to clear their schedules for the mini-concert.

Blackwell relates:

Obama for America Ohio, which hosted the rally, informed its nearly 34,000 followers on Twitter about the event around 10 a.m.

“Perhaps it wasn’t advertised properly, but the people who are here are fired up,” said Bill Milhoan, of Mentor.

Milhoan, who said he supports Obama, was one of the few people in the crowd who have not already voted.

“It would be disingenuous to say I am here because of Obama,” he said. “How do you pass up a chance to see Stevie Wonder?”

“If Obama wins, this could very well be our last free election!”

By Kasey Jachim

 

I have been active in our local Republican and Tea Party groups since 2008.  I currently volunteer at the local Romney Victory Office and have had an opportunity to meet some wonderful Patriots.  One thing I have noticed in the past few weeks is the fact that the Obama campaign is not getting the message!

Recently a young voter, who just turned 18, came in for signs and stickers.  He is so excited and enthusiastic about his ‘first time’ and is proud to be voting for Mitt Romney.  He is spreading the word around his community college and hopes to encourage other young conservatives to vote.

Another young voter, who is a recent college graduate looking for full-time employment, recently expressed her concern about the economy and lack of jobs for those entering the workforce.  She said she could afford her own birth-control if she had a decent full-time job, she didn’t need the government in her business.

A woman recently came in asking for a voter registration form.  She is 51 years old and will be voting for the ‘first time’ in her life.  She said this election is the most important in our lifetime and she is afraid for herself, her family and our country.

A lovely lady about 80 years young came in for some yard signs and expressed her concern over the administration’s ignorance regarding seniors.  She wondered ‘just how stupid Obama thinks seniors are.’  She said she was deeply concerned about the economy and the debt we are leaving our grandchildren much more than she was concerned about Medicare and Social Security.  I know that is why I am volunteering and writing this blog – not for me but for my innocent grandchildren who have no voice.

A gentleman came in to pick up Absentee Ballots for his grandparents who were too ill to go to the polls.  He said “Granny was upset that she might not be able to vote” so he was making sure she could and that her voice would be heard.

Several of us discussed how often people have mentioned prayer and how important and powerful it can be.  One of the volunteers said God gave us Obama to wake us up and may now be ready to help us.  I know I pray daily!

Finally, I met a gentleman who was visibly shaking and was so distraught over the thoughts of another four years of Obama he had tears in his eyes.  Several of us began reminiscing about our younger years of Memorial Day Parades, prayer in school, pride in America and all things made in America.  We then compared them to the current day destruction of America and all things made in America. The gentleman then looked at all of us and said, “I am afraid if Obama wins, this could very well be our last free election.”

After the chills subsided, I began another silent prayer.

Please reach out to those who may need assistance getting to the polls and encourage everyone you know to pray and to vote as if their life depended on it – because it just might.

Also, please read The Grey-Haired Brigade when you get the chance…..

Obama’s narcissism a danger to America, and the world

Reblogged from Counter Jihad Report

By

I must confess that, in 2008, I was impressed by Barack Obama. He looked youthful, spoke well, appeared confident and was as smooth as a rock star. He commanded the stage and screen. I was really confident that this man, being black and having a possible semi-Muslim upbringing, was the perfect candidate to make lasting peace in the Middle East. I was sure that Israel was going to see a much-needed peace with the Palestinians, and my visits to eat great humus in Tulkarem — a small Palestinian town near Netanya — would one day soon be possible again.

But I was put off very soon after President Obama took office. The first time I began to look more closely at him was when I watched his speech in Cairo. I listened in awe and disbelief, but I thought that this may be a ploy to embrace the Muslim world and develop a mutual respect with the Arabs. Perhaps, I thought, this was a great tactic in showing friendship and commitment to the Muslim masses.

All too soon, my hopes started to fade. As I began watching President Obama’s body language and listened more closely to his tone of voice, I noticed a shallowness and an air of haughtiness that was unsettling. His posture and his body language were louder than his words. It stunned me to watch his speeches, which were filled with such “religious” inflection that it struck me in a why it no doubt did for so many others.

I watched and watched and saw how things in this volatile region of heated debate and steady but almost controlled violence started spiraling way out of control. What I thought were going to be U.S. accomplishments in this historic and religious global epicenter turned out to be deadly failures with long-term consequences.

I went back to watch the Cairo speech, watching over and over again, and I noticed that President Obama is really not an ordinary man. Hischaracter is indeed unique in that he has the ability to impress or frustrate. Even though I felt that at times he was quite ignorant to the most important subjects relating to Israel, like the 1967 borders, he never really spoke like a lawyer or politician but rather someone who was out to prove that he was the epicenter and not the problem.

Obama’s language, posture and demeanor seemed wrong to me. This was supposed to be a president who gave hope to so many, who was supposed to implement change in a positive way for all. It was as if President Obama was projecting a grandiose posture that was not his. He looked out of place and suddenly was not the presidential figure representing the free world.

It seemed that he created a sort of personality cult around himself, elevating his admirers blindly, presenting a somewhat false trust of enthusiasm that led followers to believe that no matter what he said in his speeches, he was free to do as he wished, unaccountable at all times. These admirers would follow at any cost, blindly as if in a daze or hypnotized. He promised the moon but delivered doom, and people were missing the real-life threats taking place, unfolding as an optical illusion of a beautiful spring dubbed “the Arab Spring.”

In searching for answers to find out what Obama’s real agenda on Israel was, I became swamped with irrelevant accusations, doctored pictures and cartoons. The mainstream media was promoting Obama, pushing him forward into the sphere that he sought to be. They, too, were blinded. I found an interesting observation by chance when I came across the behavioral patterns of narcissism. This disorder was common in the likes of other world leaders, but more so in dictators and power-seekers, those who wanted control as if it meant everything.

I am by no means a professional psychologist, nor have I ever had any training other than simple body language classes and perhaps a more in-depth profiling education based on the work I carried out as an Israeli police officer. Having said this, I started noticing alarming signs that perhaps indicate a slight narcissistic trend in President Obama. I base this assumption on the president’s speeches and statements, both on and off the record.

Obama’s imposing personality overwhelms those around him. He charms with his charisma. He shapes those around him and reduces others in his own inverted image (as we saw with his snubbing of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu).

I drew from my readings that narcissists have no interest in things that do not help them reach their personal objectives. They are focused on one thing alone, and that is power and control.

All other issues are meaningless to them, and they do not like to waste their precious time on trivialities. Anything that does not help them is beneath them and does not deserve their attention (remember President Obama’s recent comments when he snubbed Netanyahu’s request for action on the Iranian nuclear weapons program?).

Take a look at his attitude while serving in the U.S. Senate. If an issue was raised in the Senate that did not help Obama in one way or another, he had no interest in it. “Present” was a safe vote. No one could criticize him if things went wrong. Those issues were unworthy by their very nature because they were not about him.

A study by a leading psychologist found that Obama’s election as the first black president of the Harvard Law Review led to a contract and advance to write a book about race relations. The University of Chicago Law School provided him a lot longer than expected, and at the end, the project evolved into his own autobiography. Instead of a scholarly paper focusing on race relations, for which he had been paid, Obama it seems could not resist writing about his most sublime self. He titled the book, “Dreams from My Father.”

Narcissists are often callous and even ruthless. As the norm, they lack conscience. This is perhaps evident from Obama’s lack of interest in his own brother, who lives in poverty. A man who lives in luxury, who takes a private jet to vacation in Hawaii and who raised nearly half a billion dollars for his campaign (something unprecedented in history) has no interest in the plight of his own brother. Why? Because his brother cannot be used in his ascent to power. A narcissist cares for no one but himself.

There is no doubt this election has been like no other in the history of America. The main issues are really insignificant compared to what is at stake in the form of lives being spared and countries disappearing and, yes, the global economy. What can be more dangerous than having a man bereft of conscience, one who cannot distinguish his fantasies from reality, as the leader of the free world?

Is General Ham losing his job over Benghazi? Retirement announced!

UPDATE: General at center of Benghazi-gate controversy retiring

Maybe once General Ham retires we will learn the truth regarding the order to ‘Stand Down’ and the events that followed!

Via The Washington Times

Major General Carter F. Ham, US Army, Commandi...

Updated 10/29) Is an American General losing his job  for trying to save the Americans besieged in Benghazi? This is the latest  potential wrinkle in the growing scandal surrounding the September 11, 2012  terrorist attack that left four men dead and President Obama scrambling for a  coherent explanation.

 

 

On October 18, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta appeared unexpectedly at an  otherwise unrelated briefing on “Efforts to Enhance the Financial Health of the  Force.” News organizations and CSPAN were told beforehand there was no news  value to the event and gave it scant coverage. In his brief remarks Mr. Panetta  said, “Today I am very pleased to announce that President Obama will nominate  General David Rodriguez to succeed General Carter Ham as commander of U.S.  Africa Command.” This came as a surprise to many, since General Ham had only  been in the position for a year and a half. The General is a very well  regarded officer who made AFRICOM into a true Combatant Command after the  ineffective leadership of his predecessor, General William E. “Kip” Ward. Later,  word circulated informally that General Ham was scheduled to rotate out in March  2013 anyway, but according to Joint doctrine, “the tour length for combatant  commanders and Defense agency directors is three years.” Some assumed that  he was leaving for unspecified personal reasons.

However on October 26, “Ambassador” posted  the following RUMINT on TigerDroppings (h/t Jim Hoft):

I heard a story today from someone inside the military that I trust  entirely. The story was in reference to General Ham that Panetta referenced in  the quote below.

quote:

“(The) basic principle is that you don’t deploy forces into harm’s way  without knowing what’s going on; without having some real-time information about  what’s taking place,” Panetta told Pentagon reporters. “And as a result of not  having that kind of information, the commander who was on the ground in that  area, Gen. Ham, Gen. Dempsey and I felt very strongly that we could not put  forces at risk in that situation.”

The information I heard today was that General Ham as head of Africom  received the same e-mails the White House received requesting help/support as  the attack was taking place. General Ham immediately had a rapid response unit  ready and communicated to the Pentagon that he had a unit  ready.

General Ham then received the order to stand down.  His response was to screw it, he was going to help anyhow. Within 30 seconds to  a minute after making the move to respond, his second in command apprehended  General Ham and told him that he was now relieved of his  command.

 

The story continues that now General Rodiguez  would take General Ham’s place as the head of Africom.

New Romney ad: Believe in the America YOU built! (Video)

The Romney campaign rarely misses an opportunity to use the President’s own words against him.  The following ad is no exception:

 

 

According to Ed Morrissey via Hot Air:

 

Officially, the ad is titled “Believe in Our Future,” but that’s not the phrase that sticks with the viewer, nor is it intended to be.   The big takeaway is “Believe in the America you built” — a direct poke at Barack Obama’s “you didn’t build that” argument earlier this month in Roanoke, Virginia.  Team Romney has moved from taking Obama to task for this belief to adopting the rebuttal as a major campaign theme.  In 2008, the McCain campaign didn’t have the time or resources to take advantage of the Obama stumble with Joe the Plumber, but Romney has plenty of both to make himself Bob the Builder in 2012.

Mitt Romney is finally being seen as warm and genuine instead of the cold corporate CEO the Obama campaign painted him to be.  He is showing voters that he is a capable leader with solutions instead of rhetoric.  Let’s hope it is not too late for the undecided voters.

 

Beyond Impeachment: Obama Treasonous over Benghazi

Reblogged from Counter Jihad Report

PJ Media:

By Roger L Simon

Is it treason when you put your own reelection above the good of your country and the lives of its citizens? If so, Barack Obama committed treason in leaving the four Americans to die in Benghazi.

Our Constitution defines it this way: “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”

Aid and comfort to the enemy — what is that?

When you ascribe an action to the protest of a video when it is actuality a planned terror attack by Ansar al-Shariah, an established offshoot of al-Qaeda (if that’s not your “enemy,” then who) — and you knew that all along, you watched it live without doing anything, and then you told those who wanted to help to “stand down”? Meanwhile, our government may have been conspiring to arm another offshoot of al-Qaeda in Syria.

How much more treasonous can you get? Benedict Arnold was a piker.

Indeed, the discussion of Benghazi has just begun. And don’t be surprised if the conversation escalates from impeachment to treason very quickly. In fact, if Obama wins reelection you can bet on it. The cries of treason will be unstoppable. Not even if the mainstream media will be able to deny them.

As Pat Caddell [2] noted, those same media lapdogs have muzzled themselves in an unprecedented manner in this matter, but our Canadian friends [3] at least have some semblance of honor left, writing:

It is undoubtedly worse than Obama simply turned his back on cornered American citizens in a foreign land, knowing undoubtedly they would die. But that Barack did so without any compelling reason—except political—is beyond evil. Only a moral monster would have made that decision when it was within his powers to possibly save them with almost no effort of his own.

Moral monster? Those are extreme words but they fit an extreme situation and are appropriate to the use of the t-word. But it’s worse. Many now are trying to figure out the motivation for this behavior — beyond the obvious electoral whoring mentioned above, the need to be seen in a certain manner at a certain moment to be sure the Ohio vote doesn’t fall the wrong way.

But is there more than that? Is the treason yet greater? Were Obama and others covering up more than their ineptitude? Just what was Ambassador Stevens doing in Benghazi that day? Why had he left the Libyan capital to meet with the Turkish ambassador on the anniversary of September 11?

Rumors abound. According to Admiral Lyons writing in the Washington Times [4],

…one of Stevens’ main missions in Libya was to facilitate the transfer of much of Gadhafi’s military equipment, including the deadly SA-7 – portable SAMs – to Islamists and other al Qaeda-affiliated groups fighting the Assad Regime in Syria. In an excellent article, Aaron Klein [5] states that Stevens routinely used our Benghazi consulate (mission) to coordinate the Turkish, Saudi Arabian and Qatari governments’ support for insurgencies throughout the Middle East. Further, according to Egyptian security sources, Stevens played a “central role in recruiting Islamic jihadists to fight the Assad Regime in Syria.”

Lyons adds, citing a Clare Lopez [6] article at RadicalIslam.org,

…that there were two large warehouse-type buildings associated with our Benghazi mission. During the terrorist attack, the warehouses were probably looted. We do not know what was there and if it was being administrated by our two former Navy SEALs and the CIA operatives who were in Benghazi. Nonetheless, the equipment was going to hardline jihadis.

Do we know that for sure? I certainly don’t, although on the face of it sounds like a “Fast & Furious” scandal on a global scale with extraordinary geopolitical implications. But I imagine there are those who do know the truth, or a lot of it, considering the events were being watched in real time.

None of this, of course, exonerates our government in not giving support to our four now dead men in the field.

Many questions remain to be answered — some of which are listed here [7]. But I do not think I am being excessive in raising the treason accusation. I would be pleased to withdraw it if proven wrong.
