Historic President: significant changes we can do without!

BettyJean Downing
Chairwoman NJ- American Reform Party

 We are told to be proud of electing the first Black president because that demonstrates America is not a racist country. Ok we did that! And all we managed to accomplish, much like implementing affirmative action, is that while we are no longer a racist country – we are a majority of stupid liberals suffering from white guilt. What a way to pick the leader of the free world!

 We made history with this guy alright; here we are breaking all records the least of which was electing a half black man. President Obama’s $4.4 trillion in deficit spending. We have spent more money in credit vouchers per day every day than ever in history, we are deeper in debt then ever in history, we accomplished less in any 2 years with an all Democrat Party in full control of all three branches and yet never passed a budget in those 2 years, and without belaboring the lack of hope of change he ran on, created more animus between and among Americans than I have seen in my lifetime.

No other candidate of color has ever used the race card to this degree or created racial tensions within our communities just for the hell of it. No other administration has created this chaos between the rich and the poor.  Turning Americans one against the other all over the nation became commonplace, voting became brawling and talking politics became a gang fight. Town meetings were practically banned, culminating in actually calling grassroots Americans, Astroturf and labeling them “The Mob”.

 This borrow and spend crazy, socialist takes no responsibility for his actions, and insists he wants even more of our tax dollars for his extravagant lifestyle. Yes his predecessor was a jerk, and for a while he could blame Bush for leaving him a mess but wasn’t that part of what he promised he was coming to change? He even said,

 “If I can’t fix it in 3 years then maybe 1 term in all I deserve”.

I agree!  Now unfortunately for Japan and Europe, he has others to blame for his failure to accomplish his goals and demands 4 more years to completely destroy our economy! No thanks Mr. President – You will not get any more money from me – you have a bad credit rating! 

Historically speaking, he has done enough to earn his place in the books but I doubt he will be remembered in the way he predicted. He will never get his face on the mountain or on so much as our penny,

How to tell if you’re a Good German

This post and the one after it are for all of us who think that we could never have participated in the Holocaust.

Programs that are being instituted in your village, town, city, county etc. right now, are programs that carry the stench of the future, and the past.  

Asset Based Community Development (ABCD)
Community Oriented Policing (COPS)
Neighborhood Revitalization
Neighborhood Stabilization
Know Your Neighbor
COPE

These programs are sponsored by your local government and are designed to find out everything possible about you.  Why?  Because you’re being assessed and mapped.  Your skills are being put on a map, searchable through GPS (global positioning system), so that you can ‘contribute’ to the well being of the community.  Your assets—stored food, water, tools, weapons—are being recorded. Click on this paragraph to see the questionnaire.

These programs are being touted as something YOU want, that YOU asked for—at a visioning meeting, perhaps, where you were Delphi’d.  They can’t do this without your assistance…and your neighbor’s, if you don’t cooperate.  What they don’t tell you is that they also record your limitations, your handicaps, your resistance, your personal behavior, your private life, your habits.  The skill-sharing is the candy-coating.

Now read this (from Wikipedia):
In Nazi Germany, a blocklieder (block warden) was the lowest official of the Nazi Party, responsible for the political supervision of a neighborhood or city block, and formed the link between the Nazis and the general population.  He was charged with planning, spreading propaganda, and developing an acceptance to the policies of the Nazi party among the typically 40 to 60 households in his area. It was also the duty of the blocklieder to spy on the population and report any anti-Nazi activities to the local Gestapo office.  This allowed for a Nazi terror state and was helped by keeping files on each household.

Crony Car Capitalism

By Gary Jason
American Thinker

Several recent revelations bring home just what a cesspool of crony capitalism the American auto industry has become. The Obama administration and the UAW (Obama’s major financial and political supporter) are running the show.

First is the news that the “new” GM walked away from the crony bankruptcy proceedings with a huge tax break — one worth up to $45 billion. It was revealed in the paperwork filed for its IPO that the Obama administration gave the new GM a sweetheart deal: it will be allowed to carry forward huge losses incurred by the “old” GM prior to its bankruptcy. Of course, the IRS doesn’t allow the new companies that emerge from bankruptcy to write off their old losses. But the feds decided to waive that rule for companies bailed out by TARP thus, the new GM will save about $45.4 billion in taxes on future earnings, which may allow it to escape taxes for the next twenty years. This “tax-loss carry-forward” is a huge plum, an asset most of GM’s rivals don’t have, and one that no doubt led to its artificially high IPO stock price.

This brings up the second revelation: namely, the machinations by the Obama administration during the IPO that consciously helped the UAW make out like bandits.

The UAW was given a big chunk of new GM in the crooked bankruptcy settlement. To be precise, the very monster that drove GM off the cliff — the UAW — received 35% of the stock in the new company. With the sale of the stock in the new GM, the UAW earned an immediate $3.4 billion in selling about one third of its shares.

Moreover, if the UAW can get $36 per share for the other two-thirds of its shares, it will walk away breaking even — meaning it will walk away with its outrageously bloated pension and health care fund fully intact. The taxpayer, on the other hand, hasn’t fared well at all.

In fact, the Obama administration screwed the taxpayer just as thoroughly as it pampered the UAW. The taxpayer put $49.5 billion into GM in the bankruptcy, not to mention all the funds shoveled at the company prior to that. The Treasury recouped only a wretched $13.7 billion in the IPO, mainly because the Obama administration — in yet another unprecedented gift to the union — announced publicly that it would not sell any more stock for the next six months. This enables the UAW to dump its shares whenever it wants at a much higher price than it could get if the Treasury were also selling. The taxpayers will almost certainly get a lower payout, and they will never recoup their forced investment in these dinosaurs — all to enable the UAW to walk away made whole.

Screwed even worse were the old secured creditors — you know, the ones near the front of the line in bankruptcy filings way back when America was governed by the rule of law. The bondholders in the old GM have bonds as useful as scratch paper. (I won’t mention the stockholders in the old GM, because stockholders — who are only the legal owners of a company! — typically got nothing in bankruptcy.)

The Obama administration car czar, who engineered the crony bankruptcy — the aptly named Steve Rattner — claims that the secured creditors would have received nothing in a standard bankruptcy anyway. But his claim is ludicrous on its face: in a regular bankruptcy, the union contracts that caused GM’s and Chrysler’s failure would have been nullified, and the substantial assets of the companies (plants, inventory, receivables, land, patents, etc.) would have been worth a substantial amount to other automakers and investment companies. The proceeds would have gone to satisfy the bondholders at least to a fair degree.

The third recent revelation about the U.S. automakers was the news that the Obama administration changed the purchasing of vehicles for the federal fleet dramatically; again, apparently to benefit its supporters.

It turns out that the administration itself has purchased a huge, unprecedented chunk of American-made hybrid cars assembled since it took over two of the loser companies. This has propped up the sales of hybrid cars in the face of widespread consumer indifference.

The U.S. General Services Administration (which handles the federal fleet of cars) bought nearly 15,000 hybrid cars over the last two years, or about 10% of the government cars purchased. This compares to only 1% of the fleet being hybrids just two years ago. Even more striking, more than 20% of the hybrids the GSA purchased were bought using “stimulus money” (yes, the GSA got “stimulus money” — $300 million in total!).

Furthermore, it is interesting to note that of the 15,000 hybrids that the GSA bought, only 22 were from Toyota and Honda. All the rest were purchased from GM and Ford. (Chrysler stopped making hybrids back in 2008 after a brief attempt.) The GSA in total bought nearly 25% of all the American-produced hybrids made over the last two years.

Why is that? We can dismiss the idea that it was because the Obama administration judges the Japanese hybrids inferior; the Japanese are widely viewed as having the lead in that technology, and they produced hybrids before Detroit did. No, it is doubtless because the UAW controls Ford and GM, and the UAW was (and is) a huge contributor to the Democratic Party, and the Obama campaign in particular. After all, consumers are not sold on hybrids — globally, hybrids account for only about 2% of all auto sales. But the Obama administration — to pay off its union and environmentalist big money donors — is buying thousands of hybrids from the American auto makers.

So there you have it. The Obama administration rigged the bankruptcy to favor the union, rigged the IPO to favor the union, and has purchased much of the inventory unsalable in the free market, again to benefit the union (and the environmentalists). But of course, the unions (and the environmentalists) pumped many millions of dollars into Obama’s campaign. They also and pumped many millions into trying to keep Democratic candidates in office in the last election.

This is corrupt, crony car capitalism, all paid for by coerced taxation, from an administration that promised a new era of transparency and honesty in government. But at the end of the day, the cabal at the top behaves just like the dirty Chicago machine that spawned it.

“One Nation” (Of Commies, Unions, & Other Leftist Extremists)…Trashing The Mall

Thanks to Lucianne.com, Kristinn Taylor, Jim Hoft at Big Government and Gateway Pundit, Connie Hair at Human Events, Liberty Central, Lagniappe’s Lair, Hancaqan.com, Verum Serum and FreeStateRevolution for the links (and all who linked or sent this on Twitter & Facebook). Thanks to Chris at DaybyDay Cartoons who also used some of the photos for this cartoon.

Today was the day that an assortment of Left-wing groups, labor unions, Democrats and the NAACCP rallied on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to “counter” the genuine grassroots Tea Party movement.

Judging from the results, the astroturfers, many of whom offered free bus rides and box lunches, couldn’t come close to Glenn Beck’s August 28th rally, held in the same area.
But the liberals sure left their mark behind. This was on one side of the reflecting pool.

 

 

On the base of the Lincoln Memorial, near the “stage.”
Even up on the Mall, near the Smithsonian.
 
 
 
 


On my walk back to the Arlington Cemetery Metro station, I found several of those union paid-for boxed lunches were left for someone else to pick up, on the Memorial Bridge.
This was at the Roslynn Metro.

Some Leftist thought so highly of Old Glory to treat it like trash.

At the entrance of the Museum of Art.


Look for the Union Label.

The tone was much different from the August 28th rally Glenn Beck held. Whatever you might think of him (I admire him for exposing a lot of what he has, but sometimes his presentation isn’t necessarily my cup of tea), his rally was positive and was mostly apolitical.

The One Nation rally was….well…how can I put it. It was hard to tell if it was an “anti-war” rally or what. Basically, it was a Grievance Fest of different Leftist organizations for this cause or that cause. It was also an opportunity to bash the “teabaggers” (that homosexual slur was on a lot of signs), as well as promote Communism and socialism. In other words, the most extreme element of the Left, far removed from the American mainstream.


Tea Party, GOP, & Fox News Bashers


The Left (and Obama’s) favorite response (above).

One of Jeremiah Wright’s flock?
Even the Hillary Clinton wasn’t well liked…

Communists, Socialists & Other Extremists


The Freedom Socialist Party (isn’t that oxymoronic?).

Their table….


Full of Communist literature…


No wonder the “Smash Capitalism”

And proof that Obama and ACORN are linked….

The Anti-War, Anti-Military, Anti-Israel Crowd

The Jew-haters were present


And the “Stop the War because we’re the bad guys” clowns.


A member of Iraq Veterans (Many of Whom Didn’t Serve In Iraq) Against The War, holding ready made signs for International ANSWER, the front group for the neo-Stalinist Workers’ World Party.

So if the “peace movement” was really about peace, they why are they always on the side of America’s enemies (Communists and Islamofascists)?

I did see Susie “Medea” Benjamin and her little sissy boy, Tigue while I was driving down Constitution Ave. I starled them with a honk of my horn

.Etc.. Etc…
Here’s the US Flag, desecrated in the colors of the Black Power movement.

(Illegal) immigrant’s “rights”

This guy, near the Smithsonian, wasn’t happy with the pro-illegal alien element. I wasn’t sure if he was part of One Nation or not, but he was calling Obama a “sellout” and said “don’t let him throw black people under the bus.”
The “reparations” crowd

The Unions

Most of the crowd “looked the same.” What I mean by that, is you could identify them with whatever labor union they were with. AFL-CIO, (S)SEIU, Teamsters, AFT, NEA, you name it.
…and they’re teaching our kids.

More good jobs, for whom?

All about “decent” union jobs. Thanks for the answer.

Some of the unions didn’t get their money’s worth out of their workers. I encountered these union members who were at the National Air & Space Museum, instead of the rally.

The NAACCP, the Democrats and just about every other group has accused the Tea Party of every kind of extremism under the sun. Judging from “One Nation,” Ben Jealous and his followers are the extremists. Jealous could not even say “One Nation Under God” during his speech (he left out the God part).

I have news for Ben…communists, socialists, Israel haters, Islamofascist terrorist enablers, are not part of the American mainstream. So the next time you want to see an extremist, head for the nearest member, Ben. And I look forward to the day some politician has the balls to challenge and take away the NAACCP’s tax-exempt status.

* NOTE- Approximately 175,000 leftists from 400 different liberal groups managed to insult America and her taxpaying, law abiding men, women and children citizens in every way imaginable. They carried freedom of speech to its very limits both verbally and with their signs and pamphlets and left our Capital looking like a garbage dump upon leaving.

A month earlier other Americans- nearly a million of them came with love in their hearts, not one hateful sign and not one hateful sound. When they left they was no sign of they were there let alone the filth, food and garbage. Clearly a better characterization of Americans was depicted on 8/26/10 than was demonstrated by this circus troupe on 10/2/10 and I shudder to contemplate what out Capital will have to endure on 10/30/10 when the head clowns put on their Halloween parade on 10/30/10.

On 8/28  there was a second rally, it too was a leftist rally and it too smacked of a lack of decorum. It appears the left just doesn’t know how to behave. America- wake up!
