George Bush

Washington – Government In A Bubble.

I’m convinced that Washington DC is, as we have long suspected, not in the same time line as the rest of us. Some, like me, would tend to say that Washington is existing in another universe altogether.

I’ve been waiting for an adult or two to show up. With the exception of twenty four Tea-Party Patriot Representatives who didn’t fold, regardless of the pressure placed on them by our own people, I haven’t seen a lot of intestinal fortitude out there.

I guess the one thing it did accomplish was to give us, out here in the trenches, a definitive ‘no fly’ list for the upcoming elections. There may be a good explanation why most of our Republican elected representatives caved in on the worst piece of legislation since TARP but, I haven’t seen one yet. At the very least there be some splainin’ to do.

Too soon we forget how much money has been thrown at and squandered by this gang of thieves. George Bush gave up his ‘conservative principles’ to ‘save the economy’ when he signed on to his own 185 billion dollar stimulus, an amount which, in view of subsequent events, seems like child’s play by comparison.

Then we were served up TARP on the half shell… 700 billion dollars to bail out financial institutions which should have been allowed to fail.

Setting aside for a moment the astronomically absurd concept of a government, any government forcing sound financial corporations into insolvency by forcing them to loan money to people who had not a prayer of fulfilling those commitments… that’s exactly what was done here.

Next came Obama’s 825 billion dollar DeMarxist slush fund, the money from which has been flowing into the coffers of the public sector unions since Obama’s ‘immaculation’ (thanks, Rush).

Short story gone sour: Trillions of dollars poured into a failed government by a failed president. A country in the grip of a depression, clearly caused by our own government’s ineptitude. The Repubic (thanks, Mark Levin) leadership, if that’s what it can be called, has sold us out time after time. Their price has been cheap, too… at least from the Marxist perspective. Stonewall, lie and prevaricate… rabble rouse and use cheap political invective and the Repubics will fold every time.

The Republicans are about to face the wrath that thus far has been reserved for ObaMao and his wannabe Trotskyite sycophants. There may have been some principled decisions among the Republicans. I hope so. And I hope there will be some defensible explanations for those decisions. The primary list is being put together as I write.

Washington has had it its own way for far, far too long. The cozy time-warp capsule that the beltway has existed in is about to burst. How ’bout a strong dose of reality, folks? The same reality you’ve been making the rest of us live in for the last four years.

Tempered In Adversity.

It’s something deeply embedded in the American psyche. There’s an innate stubbornness Americans have in the face of adversity. These last three years have forged a new breed of American… much tougher and much, much more skeptical.

America has watched as its own sworn leadership has turned upon us, leaving economic chaos and destruction in its wake. Policy after policy, specifically designed to kill jobs in the private sector and foster an ever more dependent population.

If you want to see what the Marxists here have in store for us, if you want to see Obamacare in action, look at Great Britain. I have friends who believe that there won’t even be a Britain in another twenty years. Look well, America… this is what happens when a country loses the will to live… this is the face of socialism. It’s not a happy face, and it’s not a very pleasant way to live, either.

We’ve gotten a really scary look into what it would be like, in that this last three years have been the darkest economic times we’ve had since the Great Depression. We keep hearing all of the Obamanoids telling us how the recession ended last summer. I don’t think so. All I’ve seen it do is get worse. More people losing jobs, more foreclosures, more businesses forced to close. Makes you wonder why they’re not calling it a depression… silly me.

What is going to be real trouble for Democrats in general, is that now the American people have had a good opportunity to educate themselves about just exactly what has gone on since 2008. Well, let’s just say it’s not Bush. That excuse worked for about two weeks.

No amount of leftist polling can hide the fact that the numbers are plummeting for Barack Hussein Obama and his DeMarxists in the Congress. Every single thing this bunch has done has been, and is, an unmitigated disaster. It’s one of the reasons the left is so strident about the Republican presidential candidates they see as the greatest potential threats.

Americans are smarter and tougher as a result of this unnamed depression. The DeMarxists are going to find out just how tough and just how smart.

Our Intelligence And Special Ops Triumph Over The Worst Obama’s Marxists Can Do.

From all reports, it was a nearly flawless operation with the exception of the loss of one helicopter. We’ll probably never know all of the details, nor should we. Special operations / black ops are just that… highly clandestine, and therefore almost always top secret.

It’s also a singular truth that the left, starting with Jimma Boy Carter, has been steadily eroding our intelligence community’s ability to defend our country’s interests throughout the world. Even Carter’s bumbling incompetence couldn’t match the decimation of the ‘first most ethical administration in US history’… that of Billy Jeff Clinton. He, Hillary, and the rest of the Marxists in his government, did their best to decimate not only the intelligence community and cripple their ability to do their jobs, but leaked classified information at every opportunity.

Our ‘assets’ (agents and informers) were compromised all over the world, and many lost their lives to this shameful treason… the Clintons, along with Senator Dianne Feinstein, whose husband Richard Blum has been in bed with the Chicoms for over 25 years. Deeply embedded, I should say. He and his leftist wife have made multiple millions of dollars, literally on the backs and bodies of our gallant and magnificent military. This is the pedigree that our increasingly onerous Hussein Obama brings to the table. Another snake in a long line of snakes.

In my article the day before yesterday I alluded that this operation was not any great act of courage by the Enlightened One, but rather the culmination of ten years of hard and concentrated work set in motion by George Bush. Obama never would have made such a move on his own.

What happened was that he was forced into giving his ok for the operation. Obama, the great lover of all things Muslim, would never have given up his icon except under huge political duress. He was faced with the political certainty that if he buried this intel, someone would release it during the hottest part of the 2012 election cycle and that, on top of the rest of his dismal performance, would put finis to his second term aspirations.

The surest indication of the truth of this is that Obama didn’t get the ratings ‘bounce’ of which the left was so palpitatingly expectant. It didn’t happen. Nothing Obama can say or do is going to sway the American people, no matter what the legions of his Lame Stream Media have to say about it.

Now Starts The Heavy Lifting.

Barack Obama’s defeat was a crushing avalanche of voter disgust and distaste for what had been done to them for over two years… three really, because towards the end George Bush was no more responsive to the voters than the DeMarxist clown college.


The 'Dream Team'. Eric Cantor and John Boehner, expected to take over as House Majority Leader and Speaker respectively. Kevin McCarthy is expected to complete the lineup as Majority Whip.

The Marxist-leaning Democrat Congress literally spat in the eye of the American electorate… virtually daring us to do something about it, safe in the knowledge of their overwhelming superiority in both the House and Senate and carrying the totalitarian banner of their extreme leftist chief, Barack Hussein.

We warned you not to listen to the spin going into the election yesterday. The left was in full electoral disrupt mode by any means (mostly illegal) at their disposal, and their bag of dirty tricks is deep indeed. The left has no scruples whatsoever about using the type of language about our Conservative women that would have gotten them a thrashing by any real man around. But then, that seems to be something that the left has a distinct dearth of.

When you live in shadow you develop fears…the left fears many things. For instance, they must have a morbid fear of the young men and women of our armed forces. They have, despite laws to the contrary, consistently robbed our service people of their most fundamental right.

The left doesn’t build, it doesn’t create. It exists solely to usurp the body politic and resources of the country to feed its voracious and bottomless maw.

John Boehner laid out the framework pretty well. Eric Cantor reprised that with the presentation of the 20 points the New Conservative Congress will take on first. They already have the word from us, as the American patriots, that we will be observing our ‘team’ every bit as much as we shall keep an eye on the DeMarxists.

Once again, we hear the bleatings of the establishment types, telling us what we should have done and what we absolutely have to do. Okay, if you say so… but without what we Patriots did to save your sorry posteriors you’d be up a stump.

What’s going to happen is that they are going to try and dominate us and go right back to ‘getting business done as usual’. Well, we got you here and we can remove you just as easily. We’ve amply proven that. Look at some of the ‘Blue Dogs’. They got taken down simply for being Democrat.

No, you can’t dominate the Patriot movement… just as soon try and go out and herd cats. But we can, and we will dominate you. You see, we know the dirty little secret, don’t we? The power rests with us, not you.

O’Bozo And The Clown College – Turning Certain Defeat Into Certain Disaster.

We, that is we of the Conservative Patriot movement, have experienced pretty much the worst the Marxists of the Obama government have had to throw at us. The lame-tame, so-called mainstream press, whose slavish devotion to all things socialist is well known, has lost its grip on the American people.

Enter the alternate or ‘new media’, whose reportage has been scooping the media giants on a regular basis. Not only that, but stories can be broken nationwide instantly with a few keystrokes, and we have thousands of well-informed and patriotic writers who have taken it upon themselves to get to the story and then get the truth out.

The Marxist redistributionist cabal that had taken over the seat of government in Washington completely misread the mood and intent of the country. Yeah, we’d had all of George Bush that we wanted. We were bitterly disappointed in his weak inability to rein in his out-of-control Congress, for all he was, and is, a decent man who took his responsibility to protect the country and the people of the United States from further attacks by Islamist terrorists seriously.

The DeMarxists are still trying to play on his name, magnificently ignoring that it’s been two years since George Bush retired, and that this economy and these two wars in which our nation finds itself engaged are all Obama all the time, for two years now.

Journalists, even some of the supposed reliable lame-stream outlets, have been commenting on how there now appears to be a consensus that Obama is in over his head. Hell’s bells, fellas and gals… I could have told you that two years ago… and did… repeatedly. It’s looking like the leftists are going to pay the price for hijacking our government.

The American people are the same everywhere you go, and just about everyone you talk to is really angry and cannot wait for November 2. Many people of my own acquaintance, who in a normal political cycle wouldn’t even walk across the street to vote, are fired up and talking it up to others. That’s how this thing works… one American to another… one patriot to another.

Every time Obama or any of his (remaining) minions opens his mouth, they double down on our anger quotient, more people become active and the movement grows. See, that’s another thing that the DeMarxists haven’t figured out. It’s attraction, not promotion, that accounts for the spectacular growth of the Patriots and their supporters across the nation.

Three weeks… Register and read up on the candidates and the issues for your state and locality. Be an informed voter. It may very well be the most important thing you’ll ever do.

He Has Nothing To Say.

To say that President Obama’s speech, marking the retirement of our last combat units from Iraq, was uninspiring… well, it was uninspiring. As usual, he’s taking credit for something that was planned back in the Bush administration. He did acknowledge former President Bush in an offhand sort of way, making it almost an insult.

We know Obama doesn’t do ad lib, so it makes you wonder about some of his writers. It’s like they are as far out of touch with the pulse of America as Obama is, maybe more so. The speech was short for Obama, but then he hasn’t much to say these days… just the same updated re-written garbage that he’s been spieling for two years.

The speech returned to his economy, and make no mistake about it, it is his economy… George Bush retired two years ago, though you wouldn’t know it to listen to some of the liberal backwash out there. There’s no amount of spin that can disguise the fact that George Bush left us with a budget deficit of 400 billion dollars plus, which was bad enough in the opinion of most conservatives.

Barack Hussein Obama has lied, cajoled, bribed and corrupted the political process with his phalanx of Marxist apparatchiks and regulators… choking the life out of American business. He has blasted his way through 1.85 trillion dollars.

If you look at it from that aspect, it’s not surprising he doesn’t have much to say.

Independents Show Disgust With Obama And Demarxists.

How times have changed. Fifty six percent of voters, identifying themselves as independents, voted to put Barack Hussein Obama in the Presidency. Whether caught up in the glitz and glitter of a campaign choreographed like a Radio City music hall performance, or the historical moment of voting for a black man for President… some certainly voting for Obama thereby willing away the ghosts of slavery past and the much flacked, (at least by the statist press) so-called white guilt.

Other independents who would normally tend towards voting on the right, disgusted by the dismal performance of George Bush and the Republicans, joined the exodus of many Republicans and self-identified conservatives. Many Republicans and conservatives were lukewarm about the candidacy of John McCain, for all the reasons I, and many writers, have stated. Conservatives and Republicans seem to have longer memories than their DeMarxist counterparts, and we’re not nearly as fast to forgive and forget. John McCain was a deeply flawed Presidential candidate, just as he is a deeply flawed Senator… at least from a conservative point of view… and we sure as heck haven’t forgotten about him.

Barack Obama entered office destroying an already destabilized economy. Independents tend to be slightly right-of-center, and as the months of the Obama regime played out the shine started coming off of the independents’ expectations that Obama would indeed be a ‘post racial’ uniter, bringing down barriers between Americans and ushering in an era of prosperity. At least, that’s what you believed if you listened to his repetitive messages. Independents, by July 2010, have come to realize just how badly they’d been snookered.

They’re not likely to forgive or forget either, and Obama’s dismal polling among independents does not bode well for Obama or his Marxist cabal. Thirty eight percent, as opposed to the huge percentile advantage he once held. An eighteen point drop is enough to make all but the most secure DeMarxists extremely nervous. Despite all the diversions and political sideshows, they know that independents quite often swing elections.

As November rapidly approaches, the fact that the growing power of the Patriot Movement, with it’s clear conservative message, is attracting large numbers of independents and disillusioned Democrat voters is looming large. Independents and Republicans are understandably still very skeptical of the Republican hierarchy, who have a bare four months to articulate a message that will convince us that they have the bare-knuckle guts and ability to provide the leadership we’re looking for.

As Obama continues his radical extremist march to forever destroy this country as we understand it, his numbers and policies continue to unravel. The greatest danger we face now is that as the DeMarxists feel the end coming, they will be more and more desperate to complete their agenda.

Obama Ignores – Stalls Oil Removal Assets.

When this gulf oil deal started I found my inner self in slight sympathy with the administration. After all, they hadn’t asked for this catastrophe any more than had George Bush when Katrina burst across his horizon. It didn’t take my inner self long to shed the sympathy as I saw Obama mangle it from the git go.


BP CEO Tony Hayward and Barack Obama

The problem with the office of the presidency is that there is no primer for leadership. Jimmy Carter gave us ‘stagflation’ and told us all to expect less and put on our sweaters. What Barack Obama has afflicted on the economy and the nation makes Jimmy look like a Reagan supply-sider. I needn’t go through the laundry list of Obama’s trail of depredation through our society, every internet journalist has listed them numerous times.

Those of us not under the thrall of the mystique of Barry Hussein were excoriated in the lame stream press. His background was quite adequate for the job we were assured. Why, hadn’t he run an entire campaign? Short answer: No. Barry was handled from beginning to end. If there was a single original thought in his campaign, I’ve yet to discover it.

Now, while Obama would much rather be elsewhere, perhaps schmoozing with Comrade Hugo or genuflecting before the thugocracies of the world, community organizing and strong-arming businesses and municipalities under the guise of fundraising, Chicago style, will only take you as far as the first genuine emergency requiring lightning decisions and split-second response. That’s where it all falls apart, because the real world intrudes with real events that change our lives in a heartbeat.

Obama was tested and found wanting in front of the world. His participation was grudging and at arms length. His administration spent eleven days doing nothing much other than send out platoons of lawyers, while leaving the states most heavily affected with zero support. Obama’s clown college has spent all of its time harrumphing at BP and desperately seeking to blame somebody… anybody other than themselves, that is.

Obama has stiffed the states who are begging for oil absorbent booms and oil skimmers, which are now waiting in several locations. The Dutch offered several large ships outfitted as oil sweepers and this offer was also ignored. Why would Obama deny these assets to the people of the gulf? We have to ask again… Obama, who are you working for?

Obama Willfully Ignoring Domestic Islamo-Fascist War On America.

If the shoe fits, wear it… and Obama is wearing out shoe leather on this one. In an article I wrote on Feb.17 (America’s War on Terror…Obama’s War on America), I said that it was time to ask, “Hey Obama, who’s side are you on?”. Suffice to say, there are a lot more questions about Obama’s motivations than answers.

As a Commander-in-Chief, it’s readily apparent that he is waffling and tentative at best, even making allowances for his lack of executive or command experience. His apologists are quick to point to his great intellect and thoughtfulness. I haven’t noticed any great intellectual horsepower there. I have noticed an awful lot of people running interference for him while trying to convince us of his genius.

Obama’s record of ignoring, obfuscating, covering up or lying about Islamo-fascist activities in this country goes back quite a way. Obama’s connection to CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) and to the Nation of Islam alone would prevent him from getting a federal security clearance. The number of connections to people with confirmed militant Islamo-fascist contacts is astounding, and in the chaos of the Obama administration’s efforts at dismantling our economy and our society have all but been forgotten.

Starting with George Bush cowardly avoiding saying what was only obvious to the rest of us after 9/11 by referring to Islam as “a religion of peace”, his government’s bi-polar war on terror, fighting an armed conflict in the middle east while simultaneously trying to convince Americans that the tens of thousands of muslims in our midst were as innocent as lambs and all solid patriots (pay no attention to the man behind the curtain), despite the fact that the very tenants of this benighted religion demands of its adherents that they wage war on the infidel, Obama has done nothing to further the war on terror and everything to retard its prosecution.


The Army's 09L or "09 Lima" program trains noncitizen, native speakers of Middle Eastern languages to be translators for the U.S. Army. In January, the Army transferred the program from Fort Jackson (seen here) to Fort Huachuca, Ariz.

He would have done nothing about Iraq, except for the fact that we were already there, and in fact opposed the troop surge which proved to be the winning strategy there. He would most certainly have done nothing about Afghanistan either, except for the fact that he had shot his mouth off about it during the campaign and was then trapped into acting on it. He then decided not to proceed by dragging his feet for several months on giving his commanders the resources they required to complete the mission.

Obama’s pro-Islamist attitude has permeated a military already rife with political correctness, especially at the command level. Such machinations resulted in the cover up of the Fort Hood shootings and the apparent cover up of the Fort Jackson poisoning investigation.

Obama has also further weakened an already overwhelmed Border Patrol Service by reducing funding and reducing the number of agents working our southern border by 150. Obama’s assault on our NASA space program is another mission-critical purposeful attack on our national security. The Chinese and Russians will be quick to militarize space. We would have no defense from such an assault except by being there. Obama has much, very much to answer for.

If Wishes Were Fishes… Obama’s Pond Would Overflow.

But they (wishes) are not (fishes) and those nasty and hateful TEABAGGERS pulled the plug on the pond. Shucks, seems like a feller just can’t have any fun any more. Well, President Obama, it hasn’t been any fun out here for Americans for a very long time. Now, you can keep going back to the well and dredging up the specter of the Bush administration all you want. Goodness knows I’ve taken him and his Republican Congress on often enough. In many ways his failure to stand up to the runaway spending in his own government set the stage for the recession we began experiencing in 2008.

Bush had recognized the danger represented by the various manifestations of the Community Reinvestment Act of 1977, which essentially lowered standards for mortgage lending. Subsequent efforts by Democrats resulted in lowering the bar even farther, setting up the sub-prime disasters we’re now familiar with. A stronger George Bush, in control of a Republican majority in both House and Senate, might have taken on the Democrats over the financial time bomb he knew was ticking away. But as usual he and the Republicans allowed the left to control the message.

I’d love to understand why the Republicans allowed the left to turn the message on them starting back with the Civil Rights Movement. It’s as if they were afraid to stand up to the left and answer their lies and charges for what they were. Barack Obama has certainly gotten a lot of mileage (so he thinks) out of George Bush. The problem with that is the same as the other reasons Obama’s pond has gone dry. We were looking for the post-modern CENTRIST he portrayed himself as. What we got was the prancing pony sprinting as hard and fast to the left as he could with a smorgasbord of hard core leftists right behind him.

He quickly outlined his Socialist Menu for this country, which he hoped would be enabled by the economic chaos created by the SUB-PRIME MORTGAGE CRISIS, a crisis you may recall which was engendered largely by Democrat policy and irresponsibility. Obama did everything in his and the Democrat Congress’s power to force his Marxian policies on the American people, who were initially in panic mode and were definitely slow on the uptake. Remember Rahm Emanuel, “Never let a crisis go to waste”?

Fortunately for us God, America’s love of freedom, the Patriot Movement, the Internet, and Conservative broadcasting changed all that. Obama’s attempted takeover and eventual enslavement of the American people backfired. Now there is much talk of bi-partisan this and bi-partisan that, when in January the Democrats, in their overweening arrogance, were changing the locks on the House Conference rooms locking out Republican Representatives. What a difference a couple of months makes!

Put in plain old fashioned language…these Democrat cretins are headed for a butt kicking next November of historic proportions. It’s all because of you, my fellow patriots. There is not a single reason for Republicans to accommodate or make ‘deals’ with this administration. They have not changed. They are still bent on the destruction of our way of life, and so far they’ve done a pretty damned good job of it. They will not change. Remember the snake in the high grass? He’s still there…and he still bites…
