Obama Cashes In

Former King Barry I, he of the “You didn’t build that” philosophy, has cashed in on his fame with a $60 million book contract for himself and Moochelle.

Remember, Obama often castigated what he called the “winners in life’s lottery.” He viewed their “winnings” as undeserved or even ill-gotten. Therefore, in his eye, they didn’t belong to the earner but rather to other people or, as their custodian, the federal government.

But now he’s a winner of the Publishers Clearing… um… a book contract.

Gotta say, Obama has lucked into some sweetheart book deals in his life. Guaranteed that he doesn’t see himself as some kind of life’s lottery winner but thinks he really earned that money and it’s his to keep (or give away). To bad he doesn’t grant that choice to everyone else.

King Barry the Hypocrite

Actually hypocrite is an understatement but as with all things derogatory, King Barry is the unexcelled master.

Witness his performance on “The Daily Show” on the appropriately named Comedy Central network.

Firstly, Obama whined to host Trevor Noah that he didn’t understand why there was such a ruckus by Republicans about Hillary Clinton’s perfectly “ordinary” emails. Of course Obama was lying through his teeth on this. He knows that the emails in question were not “ordinary” but rather classified, some of them containing the information with the highest levels of classification.

That was just one of Clinton’s crimes. A second one, which Obama knows about since he participated in it as well, is that Clinton set up an independent email system outside of the secured State Dept. system. One which that only she and her cronies controlled not the State Dept. IT security people. That is in direct violation/purposeful subversion of so many federal government record-keeping/archives/public oversight laws that Clinton & Co. should be facing tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines and decades in jail.

Remember Gen. David Petraeus? He got two years probation and $100,000 fine after he pled guilty to what is a single quill on a porcupine compared to Clinton’s activities. Amazingly when Petraeus’s name popped up as a potential Sec. of State nominee, Democrats and the MSM immediately pointed out that Petraeus was unqualified for the job because he was guilty of leaking some secrets.

It was as if fish were complaining that a cactus was too wet…

But back to Obama on “The Daily Show.” The Hypocrite in Chief had the nerve to castigate Donald Trump for Trump’s questioning whether he’d need a daily intelligence briefing. John Hinderaker takes our foolish lame duck president to task for this Mt. Everest of hypocrisy.

If one remembers, Obama is known for eschewing daily intel briefings or playing with his phone on the rare occasions he does take one. See, The One knows all so no one could ever possibly brief him… At least in his own mind.

Outrage

That’s a frequent position of so many, if not all, liberals.

They are constantly outraged about something and just can’t let it go. No matter nor event is too small to be above (below?) outrage.

The latest is the Trump video with Billy Bush, wherein Trump sounds like a frat boy. Of course liberals are “outraged.” As are more than a few Republicans.

That Trump spoke as he did shouldn’t surprise many. He’s known as a crude braggard. The surprising thing to me is that more of these haven’t appeared. They should, I think, be about as remarkable as Bob Costas talking about sports or King Barry talking about himself.

And, let’s be honest, has no one spoken this way about the opposite sex amongst “friends”? Seriously. I’m pretty sure even Hillary Clinton, at least when she was younger, might have a few times lasciviously spoken of some desirable amongst her fellow liberal feminists and journalist pals.

Heather Mac Donald, in the always readable City Journal, hits this topic perfectly in “Trumped-Up Outrage.”

She notes the left’s supernova of hypocrisy. The left has been the encourager for decades of the “Let it all hang out and don’t be judgmental about it” mode of behavior. Isn’t it the left that tells us the unbridled id is the source of truth? Isn’t it the left that killed sexual “morality” and “old-fashioned” social values? Didn’t they dance on the grave of “Victorian Values” and “Eisenhowerian/1950’s” square America? Isn’t “Getting Your Groove On” and “Hooking Up” the desired goal of all interaction according to the left?

Mac Donald is particularly harsh on the left’s schizo approach to campus life wherein women are encouraged to act like rabbits in heat on the one hand, yet we are to be aware of the “Campus Rape Epidemic” and also be utterly focused on the brittle shrinking violets on campus who need constant protection from language and behavior which they disagree with or don’t like and must have “safe spaces” where they can shelter from the harsh or mildly uncomfortable realities of life.

As we saw during the Clinton years, such behavior can be quickly excused and buried. All one needs are flexible morals, a single-minded focus on power and a compliant puppet media.

I ask you this, if Donald Trump were the nominee of the the Democratic Party and, say, Mitt Romney the Republican Party, would this video have ever surfaced?

Now to look at the Republicans running for the tall grass. Many of them are the usual RINO suspects and more than a few had not even endorsed Trump – yet suddenly the media treats them as respectable party grandees. That was to be expected. The worrisome thing for me is the more pragmatic conservatives who suggest that Trump should resign or step aside.

I don’t know what they could be thinking. Perhaps they have become delusional in the way that people facing some horrible decision become delusional or focus on side issues.

Trump is not leaving nor is some white knight coming to our rescue. The simple reality is that it’s either Trump or Clinton. Ronald Reagan is not coming from the grave to save the day.

I say it again, it’s either Trump or Clinton. It’s either an imperfect vessel or a black hole of evil from which no goodness of light can emanate. Take your pick.

Trump might not be a very good though constantly disappointing president. We don’t know.

What we do know is that Clinton will be at permanent war with conservatives and the Constitution. She will stop at nothing to destroy her enemies, expand the size of regulatory state, put the populace into the service of the Democratic Party and under the boot of the central government.

All the while fattening her wallet and those of her cronies.

Her little dog, Grinch Kaine, is less personally corrupt but even more committed to building the socialist state.

If Trump loses, we’ll almost certainly have eight years of Clinton (unless she dies) and then we’ll be fighting the same battle in 2024. There likely won’t be some kind of return to sanity in 2020, as many seem to imagine, because by that time a whole generation of “yutes” will have grown up knowing nothing but Mother Government and the liberal-controlled culture, while their Obama-loving/Clinton-excusing procreators will have never educated them as to the real birds and bees. The only thing they will know is that the past was bad and filled with racists, sexists, greedy robber barons and other oppressors and exploiters who ruined everything and they knew nothing of any use to the sophisticated modern person. The past should be ignored.

These man-children will have no concept of personal responsibility, independence and self-sufficiency. To them everything will come via the government or be overseen by elite school-educated enlightened (and highly-compensated) technocrats and all social interaction will be overseen by the same as well while a great purge of those uttering “unacceptable” speech is embarked upon.

Businesses of any size will act as government surrogates, if they want to survive and provide “employment” for legions of “right-thinking” party supporters. They will also be holding pens for bureaucrats and the well-connected who will be richly compensated for their good service. People with unacceptable views or those engaging in “hate” speech will be fired of pushed out through social and managerial pressure. Firms retaining “unacceptable” people will find themselves ineligible for government contracts or government-regulated business, under regulatory investigation (including from newly-minted cultural commissars), the victim of social campaigns from NGOs empowered and financed by the government and agitation from within by right-minded, culturally progressive “employees.”

The U.S. will resemble an enormous public school, with the president being the principal, politicians and bureaucrats being the teachers and staff while the rest of us are consigned to learn how to be proper, politically correct people. All the great angsts of growing up will manifest themselves as society-wide problems that can never be solved, yet will consume so much human energy. The touching but firm guiding hand of elementary school through the social awkwardness of junior high to the hormonal frustration and constant feeling of inadequacy will be the life, while one is incapable of being relieved because one will never graduate to adulthood. You will be a child and always will be…

Now let Mother Government tuck you in and keep you safe from those haters who want to oppress you. Don’t forget to pay your taxes and do everything I say, my little genius. Maybe there’ll be a treat for you in the morning. Mommy knows best.

All “national” elections will then depend on who can seem the coolest, promise the most goodies and offer the greatest protection of the personal smartphone-controlled cocoon. And we know which party is best at that.

Reality will have been banished until it can no longer be denied when it returns in some kind of quasi-Biblesque deluge.

The Heart of Darkness… er… Socialism

You didn’t build that,” one of King Barry’s chestnuts, is a pure distillation of socialism.

It eliminates the possibility of property ownership or enjoying the fruit of one’s labors thus mitigating one’s control of one’s self and one’s place in the world. Such a mentality is designed to render all to the control of the state.

I noted this in “We’re All Renters Now.” People like Obama, the Democratic Party, liberals, bureaucrats, etc., believe in the state’s primacy, the citizens are mere temporary occupants — they too shall pass but the state shall ever be.

They do not accept the organic generation of a democracy and a society — that a civilization is the sum of its people. The analogy is that the organic view sees civilization as a mountain and its citizens are the rocks, dirt and trees; therefore the mountain has no existence without the rocks (including the bedrock), dirt and trees. It is what they are.

The liberal views the civilization as the color and surface of a ball; a mere superficiality. The ball is the state and the citizens are the air making up that ball. They can come and go, make the ball inflate or deflate but, ultimately, they are transient. The ball can always be refilled with new citizens.

And, importantly, to the liberal, the air serves the ball. Don’t forget that. Obama and his ilk think that way.

They also view themselves as the ball.

The Sea of Texas

One of the main Global Warming scare tactics is the insistence that it will bring rising seas. None other than our own King Barry the Weatherman, mischanneling King Canute, has declared that his election would send the seas scurrying back to whence they came though he’s also claimed that the seas regular overwhelm Miami and fish swim in the streets.

Of course those familiar with the works of Albert the Goracle know that New York is close to being swallowed by the sea. Any day now, yep, any day…

So I shall offer a solution to soothe the fevered brows of the Global Warmongers — the Sea of Texas.

Most Global Warmers would be surprised to learn that the whole state of Texas was underwater millions of years ago (hint: it was a heck of a lot warmer back in those days — our weather today ain’t got nothing on those days back then).

I am not proposing that the whole state be flooded but I suggest that parts of the semi-arid, lightly populated western part could be turned into a large inland sea.

A series of desalinization plants could be built along the Gulf coast. These could be nuclear powered or maybe some could be powered by windmills taking in the coastal breeze. Unlike the liberal folks of our oceanic coasts, who blanch at the thought of a windmill off their coast, Texans are long comfortable with energy sources visible off the coast.

Pipelines would be built to take the water out west and north. Texans are also comfortable with pipelines and if the pipelines leak — well, it’s just water!

And think of the engineering challenge. That should get the intellectual juices flowing.

I’m sure that the first response of Global Warmists would be — “Hey, you’d drain the Gulf of Mexico!”

They aren’t too bright you have to understand.

Water is fungible so while it drains from the northwestern end of the Gulf of Mexico it just flows back in from the Atlantic via the Caribbean. You’d have to pump a lot of water to drop the level of the Atlantic enough to drastically affect the Gulf of Mexico, especially considering how fast those seas be arisen’!

So in this case, the “rising seas” can be tamed by transferring water from one place, the sea, to another, desert land. Problem solved.

Of course there’d be the cries that man is too stupid to do this (Yet somehow smart enough to precisely calculate the weather decades into the future, micromanage numerous industries from Washington and know the racism and sexism buried in the hearts of all Americans that don’t vote Democrat).

(This would inevitably be followed by the squeals that man is monkeying with the environment and that a sea in west Texas would threaten the Tom Green County Blue Sand Flea [not to be confused with the Coke County Purple Dirt Flea which will also be threatened] and so on.)

There would be side benefits in this monumental endeavor. A large inland sea could have beneficial effect on the climate by mitigating some of the heat that west Texas is (in)famous for (or it could exacerbate the thunderstorms that percolate out there, interesting thought). Or it might not do much at all.

In addition it might help recharge the vast Oglalla Aquifer and other groundwater sources along with providing irrigation possibilities for farmers in New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma. And it would aid water supply problems in fast-growing north Texas and Oklahoma.

Think about it. If this Global Warming problem is as big as the scientists of the “settled science” say it is, then big solutions are needed — and we’re not talking about putting business under the thumb of government bureaucrats or everybody being forced to live like Road Warrior-style post-apocalyptic wretches rationing and recycling everything while making nothing new.

Once my proposal is accepted and put forth, we can start talking about the Great Gobi Inland Ocean. What an engineering feat that would be.

Climate Changers, are you with me? You do want to solve the problem, right?

Most Transparent Administration Ever!

You have to wonder — if liberals, especially Obama supporters, weren’t so unself-aware or impervious to facts and realities and incapable of learning lessons, would they feel like the biggest suckers in history?

Remember when King Barry the Devious promised during his 2008 campaign to, if elected, install the “most transparent administration ever”?

Hah! Little did we know that he had his fingers crossed behind his back and was laughing on the inside.

He really meant “Most transparently corrupt administration in history!”

Joke’s on them… Uh, wait, the joke’s on America…

Is Trump “Unqualified” to Be President?

That Donald Trump is “unqualified” to be president is the latest meme peddled by Democrats, their Republican allies and, of course, the Democratic parrots known as the mainstream media.

So is Donald Trump “unqualified” to be president?

Here’s the relevant language from a document called the United States Constitution. You might have heard of it.

Article II Section 1 Clause 5:
No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

Amendment XIV Section 1:
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.

Trump meets all those criteria so he is qualified to be president.

I’m sure there are some very clever folks, many of them with Ivy League degrees, who will play the semantics game. “That’s ‘eligibility’ not ‘qualified,’” they’ll cluck.

These will be the same people who voted for a wet-behind-the-ears senator with a nonexistent record as a state legislator, an undistinguished career as a part-time contract lecturer at a university, a checkered past as a “community organizer” and an even sketchier academic career. His only success looked to have been to write an autobiography before he had done anything. He was also good at guilting white liberals with his black skin.

These people are also backing a woman who should be on trial; should be disbarred; who has a past of numerous legal violations; has aided and abetted numerous other crimes of accomplices; had a disastrous period as Secretary of State; had an undistinguished career as a senator; lies with a rare abandon; has lived off the taxpayer much of her life; and enabled her husband’s numerous crimes and misdemeanors as president.

On the other hand, Trump can point to successfully building things, employing people and working with large corporations and local governments. One can also point to failing on some of his projects as well.

The semantictarians are using the rubric that Trump is not “temperamentally” suited to be president.

Again these are the same people who voted for a two-faced narcissist who kept much of his past hidden (with the able aid of the American news media’s willingness to turn a blind eye).

There is no cuddle factor requirement for the presidency. As for insulting various people and groups, Trump is not much more insulting than Obama. The difference is that Obama insults the right groups while Trump goes after politically and socially correct groups.

As for other elements of of disqualification, that he doesn’t know the name of some obscure foreign politician, well, Obama thought we had 57 states… Trump has also threatened to push around some nations while Obama cowers and apologizes. Bellicosity is not a disqualifier for the presidency. Until King Barry the Apologetic, many presidential candidates had made a strong foreign policy part of their campaign.

What I think is really the point is that Trump, for all his faults (and they are not insubstantial), is not part of the professional political coterie that populates the upper levels of both parties. To narrow this down further, it is a group of (often Ivy League-educated) lawyers and people who have done nothing in their life but live off of the taxpayer in a series of governmental and elected jobs. They have little to no experience in the private sector and what little they have is tied to the government in some way. They have done little to nothing in the way creating jobs, businesses or economic activity (they would vehemently disagree with that, thinking that government is the source of all). They have, in many ways, been parasites living off of the public all of their lives.

These are the so-called “political elites.”

Trump offers a stark contrast to these people. Say what you want, by and large, Trump has had to work with people to get his projects done. Unlike the professional politicians he has usually not been able to simply demand that something be done and it gets done through the power of the government hammer.

I actually like the idea of having someone outside of the cushy, comfortable political ecosphere occupy the White House for a little while. The elites need to be humbled and reminded of what they have and what they should be grateful for (rather than demand as an entitlement).

One last point. During the reign of King Barry the Malignant, people have, perhaps more than with any other president, absorbed the idea of the president as omnipowerful king. That’s one reason they are so edgy about a Trump presidency.

But a Trump presidency will not be the way they fear. He will be constrained, as a president should be. Perhaps he might even, in a case of opposite day, remind people of how limited and small the presidency can and should be.
